Granny tells Alistair that every generation of the family has an 'Alistair', essentially a loser who comes to no good. However, there is a happier family tradition. A precious ring,currently owned by Granny, gets passed down to the first child of their generation to get engaged. Alistair inevitably sees this as his chance to get engaged to Pamela Whitby but confusion arises when he finds himself with a second betrothed.
