To prove that he’s really married, Lum is ready to put his seal as notary public on Abner’s paperwork. He just wants to see that marriage license one more time to feel honest about it.
Lum goes on about how honest, truthful, and reliable notary publics are.
The discussion leads Abner to get confused at the Elk’s club. Would one of them do just as well to notarize his papers? Abner and Lizabeth weren’t married in a church. Who else was there who could vouch for their wedding?
What if they get married again? After all these years, would she agree to marry Abner again? Chet and Tuffy get on a giggling spree, and have some trouble with their lines. Back in character, a phone call is made to Lizabeth. If she had it to do over again, what changes and demands would she make? Big church wedding, and a honeymoon.
