Alice – Are you finished with this juice Peter?
Mike – Ok, now look boys let’s all eat a good a breakfast today. I know you’re bound to be nervous, but we have to have plenty of nourishment and energy and that’s why it’s important to have a good breakfast.
Greg – We’re almost finished dad.
Peter – Yeah, you didn’t eat anything at all.
Mike – Oh yeah well, I’ll just have my coffee.
Alice – I don’t blame you for being nervous Mr. Brady. This is a very important Saturday.
Mike – Alice, I know it’s a very important Saturday. Who said I’m nervous? I’m mature and logical and I know I’m doing the right thing. Why should I be nervous? What makes you think I’m nervous?
Alice – It’s the first time I ever saw you take 21 spoons of sugar.
Mike – I like it sweet.
Alice – Every bridgrooms a little jumpy Mr. Brady.
Greg – It’s a normal male reaction dad. For your generation.
Peter – I once saw a movie where a man was getting married. He was so nervous, he forgot to put his pants on.
Bobby – You’re okay dad.
Mike – Thanks a lot and would you sit down?
Alice – I’m sure you’re going to be very happy. Mrs. Martin is a lovely woman.
Greg – She’s outta site dad.
Peter – Groovy.
Bobby – I think she’s neato.
Mike – Well that makes it unanimous, I think she’s pretty special myself.
Alice – Well I certainly hope the bride isn’t as nervous as the groom.
Mike – Not my bride. I’m sure the future Mrs. Brady is cool, calm and collected.
Carol – I’m shaking life a leaf. The wedding’s only an hour away and I can’t even brush your hair. And I’ve gotta fix yours too. And Cindy, what happened to your curls? A half hour ago, I made you curls. Oh, look at me. Brides are supposed to be beautiful and I look awful.
Marcia – We think you look beautiful.
Cindy – Ahuh
Carol – How can you girls sit there and say that I look beautiful?
Cindy – Cause we love you.
Carol – Girls. You do like Mike don’t you?
Marcia – Sure we like him.
Jan – A lot.
Cindy – You know how much we like him?
Carol – How much?
Cindy – This much.
Carol – I’m sure we’re all going to be very happy. You’re going to be happy, I’m going to be happy. And Mike’s going to be happy. And Greg, Peter and Bobby. They’re going to be happy.
Cindy – If we’re all going to be so happy, how come your eyes look like they’re going to cry?
Carol – Because grownups are silly. Sometimes they cry when they are happy.
Jan – That must be Mike
Carol – What makes you think so?
Jan – It’s always Mike
Carol – Hello. It’s Mike. I’m just fine honey, how are you?
Mike – I’m nervous, that’s how I am, nervous
Carol – Well, to tell the truth, I’ve got a few butterflies in my stomach.
Cindy – Were you sleeping with your mouth open Mommy?
Carol – What?
Cindy – How’d those butterflies get into your stomach?
Carol – They’re not real butterflies sweetheart. I’ll explain it to you later. Hold a minute Mike, would you? Why don’t you girls go along ad get your clothes ready, and I’ll be along in a minute to help, okay?
Jan – Oooooh, can’t we stay here?
Marcia – C’mon, the bride and groom want to talk privately.
Carol – Thank you Miss Protocol
Marcia – It’s alright.
Carol – I’m sorry Mike. Cindy thought there were real butterflies in my stomach.
Mike – You’re lucky if you only have butterlies, I have 6 flying saucers in mine.
Carol – Why don’t you take a tranquilizer?
Mike – I took one.
Carol – Well maybe you should take another one.
Mike – Nothing doing. I wanna be calm for the ceremony, but there’s a honeymoon to consider.
Carol – That’s an architect for you. Always planning ahead.
Mike – How you coming?
Bobby – Okay dad.
Mike – Let’s have a little inspection here. Looks like you got dressed in the dark here. There you go. Well, Bobby, you look pretty good.
Bobby – You look good too dad.
Mike – Thank you very much. Now let’s get going. A man can’t be late for a wedding. Especially his own. Where’s your mother’s picture Bobby?
Bobby – I put it away. In the drawer.
Mike – Because of Carol?
Bobby – I thought she might not like it when she moves in.
Mike – Come here Bobby. Now you can put it right back son.
Bobby – Are you sure?
Mike – I’m positive. I don’t want you to forget your mother. And neither does Carol.

Mike – Yes, that’s right, the honeymoon suite.
Desk Clerk – Would you care to register please?
Mike – Thank you.
Desk Clerk – Now I am Mr. Pringle. If there is anything I can do, just call on me.
Mike – Thank you.
Desk Clerk – Thank you. Uh, oh oh oh, Mr. Brady, you have signed this Mr. Brady and Family.
Mike – Oh, I forgot, that’s force of habit, the kids aren’t with us.
Mr. Pringle – Well you did ask for the honeymoon suite.
Carol – It’s quite alright Mr. Pringle, you see…
Mike – It’s alright darling, there’s no need to explain, it’s obvious this gentleman doesn’t dig the modern generation.
Boy – Mr. and Mrs. Brady for suite H
Carol – Thank you Mr Pringle.
Mr. Pringle – Oh, you’re welcome.
Mike – Honey?
Carol – Yes?
Mike – Champagne’s ready.
Carol – Champagne? Where did that come from?
Mike – The hotel sent it up, how about that?
Carol – Lovely
Mike – There you go. Well, here’s to a great big bubbly life together.
Carol – Oh, I forgot.
Mike – What?
Carol – Champagne has a terrible effect on me. It makes me dizzy.
Mike – Champagne has a terrible effect on me too.
Carol – What
Mike – You’ll find out.
Carol – Michael Brady , you stop that or I’ll?
Mike – You’ll what?
Cindy – I was afraid Tiger was going to hurt Fluffy. I couldn’t help screaming and neither could Marcia and Jan. But mamma yelled us anyway. She didn’t even yell at the boys. And it was their dog that chased Fluffy. Maybe she likes them better than us.
Carol – I fell funny about Cindy, and Marcia and Jan too. I shouldn’t have scolded them at the wedding.
Mike – I shouldn’t have yelled at the boys.
Carol – But it was such a mess. Tiger was chasing Fluffy and hors d’oeuvres were flying. And all those ice cubes. Poor Mrs. Feldman and her frozen front.
Mike – How about my nose full of wedding cake? I’m still sneezing Rosebuds.
Carol – Oh, you were a sight. Mike, I feel guilty about the kids.
Mike – Hey, wait a minute. We’re on our honeymoon, we’re supposed to be enjoying ourselves. Those kids are fine, I’m sure they’ve forgotten all about it by now.
Carol – You’re probably right.
Mike – Yeah, of course I’m right. Listen, I know my boys. They can miserable one minute and laughing the next. Right now I’ll bet they’ve got a smile on their faces a mile wide.
Alice – Okay, when boys don’t eat cake there’s gotta be a reason. Let’s have it.
Greg – Dad shouldn’t have yelled at us. We were only trying to help.
Peter – He didn’t yell at the girls and it was their cat that caused the trouble.
Bobby – He only yelled at boys. Us.
Greg – I guess that’s how it’s going to be around here from now on. Just because they’re Carol’s kids. We’re gonna get blamed for everything.
Alice – Now you men don’t really believe that.
Greg – We sure do. When those girls move in, they’re gonna take over.
Peter – Yeah, they’re gonna be dad’s favorites.
Bobby – Yeah.
Mike – It’s a marvelous hotel
Carol – And the service. The Service is great.
Mike – I told you put that dog back in the car.
Carol – Girls stop that screaming right now, you’re ruining the wedding. Whoopee
Mike – Yahoo!
Carol – You know the answer as well as I do.
Mike – Let’s go.
Carol – Like this?
Mike – It’s an emergency.
Mr. Pringle – Mr. Brady
Mike – Don’t worry Mr. Pringle we’ll be back
Cindy – Mommy.
Carol – Shhh. You’ll frighten Grandma and Grandpa
Mike – C’mon girls, wake up girls, c’mon.
Marcia – What’s going on?
Mike – How would you girls like to come along with us?
