Young Randy's insistence that his invisible friend Tippy-Top is real causes friction between his mother and the man she intends to marry. Mom humors her son, but Bob wants to convince the boy that his best buddy is imaginary.
When his daughter Margie announces her intention to marry young Fred Judson, John Graham is disturbed. He believes the couple is too young for marriage and, more importantly, unprepared for the independence he believes marriage requires. Margie and Fred seem content to live on hand-outs from their parents, but John seems the only parent to think that's a bad idea. No matter what he says, the two insist on marrying, even if John won't attend the wedding. Eventually, it's what John doesn't say that affects their decision.
