Mr Swindley becomes a father, but only for the day. Sylvia Chadwick of the sock department at Dobson and Hawks is getting married and there is nobody to give the bride away as he parents had previously emigrated to Australia. Swindley is equal to the solemn occasion. The smug smile fades when he discovers from Mr. Parbold that there is another job for the father of the bride - a quiet word about the facts of life. His little talk with Sylvia and her intended Wilf Bundy goes wrong however when the couple have a furious row about the name they will give to their first child. They are reconciled in time for the wedding and go off on their honeymoon - leaving Swindley with Sylvia's awkward Grandma and her sheep's head broth for company.
