Cathy Lewis plays three parts in the night’s play. She’s Elliot’s wife, his mother, and his secretary. As his wife gets him off to work, on a whim he buys a bunch of violets from a street kid. In the office, his secretary is given a violet, and takes it to mean something more than it is. Office gossip spreads, and everybody begins to think Elliot’s having an affair. Everybody but him. .
Setting his secretary straight, he takes back the violets, and goes to take them to his mom. Elliot’s day finds himself going to the doctor for a check up, and the violets go along. Back at the office, the morning confusion seems cleared up, but what should Elliot do with his violets that he can’t seem to get rid of?
After a hard day, Elliot returns home for a pleasant ending to his wierd day. At the least, the flowers have opened some doors, and brought Elliot a little closer to people that he normally takes for granted.
