Carol is engaged Chris and everyone is looking forward to the wedding. Since Maude is in real estate, she decides to put a down payment on a house for them as a gift. The house is across the street from Maude and Walter.


As Chris and Carol's wedding day approaches, Maude gives them their gift early; Maude has paid a down payment on a house. Everyone has a bone to pick with Maude when it is revealed that the house is a bit too close to home... just across the street!

Did You Know?[]


Maude discovers Walter's "good-luck charm"; a Stage Door Canteen napkin autographed by 'Jane Russell', which he's carried since he met her in 1944. She in turn admits that a scar on her neck isn't from a firecracker burn like she tells everyone, but from an accidental bite given her by an early boyfriend.
