The late Captain Daniel Gregg, the builder and former owner of the house, has not quite gotten around to moving out, despite being ... dead. A cantankerous and blustery ghost, his attempts to move Lucy and her family out prove futile and short-lived, as he quickly falls in love with the beautiful widow, and she with him. Their cozy, if unusual, domestic arrangement is threatened when Lucy meets Miles Fairley (Creator/GeorgeSanders) , a suave author and veteran charmer. Fairley is interested, Daniel is jealous, and Lucy has a difficult decision to make.[[spoiler: Daniel makes the choice for her, and bows out of her life so she may pursue her own existence, only reappearing to her after she dies of old age.]]

Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Lucy argues with Daniel about a certain word he's dictated, and when he asks what word she uses instead, she claims she doesn't have a need to. Finally, she types out four letters.

* {{Glurge}}: InUniverse with Fairley's "Uncle Neddy" books, apparently. Lucy claims that her daughter's a fan (while she's flirting with Fairley), but really Anna can't stand them.


Added DiffLines:

* TastesLikeDiabetes: InUniverse, Miles Fairley's "Uncle Neddy" books. He considers them such himself and [[OnlyInItForTheMoney only writes them because they sell]]. Lucy claims that her daughter's a fan because she likes him, but Anna can't stand them.

* HandsomeLech: Miles Fairley. Also turns out to be something of a JerkAss, considering [[spoiler:he's already married]]. Ironically, after this secret is revealed he comes off as much more pathetic, perhaps a CasanovaWannabe.
