A child has a big part in a school play, and his or her parents would like to attend--but oh no, it doesn't seem as if they'll be able to! The parents' problem is either that they are obligated to work late, or they have an important meeting or something else momentous scheduled for the same time. Thus a dilemma is born: which should come first, themselves or their children? Or can they have it both ways after all?
- In Trouble in Tahiti, Dinah reminds Sam about the school play in the afternoon, where Junior is the hero, but Sam suddenly remembers that he has to be at the gym right then for the handball tournament, which precipitates another nasty argument. Sam wins the gold cup in the handball tournament. Dinah doesn't go to the school play either; she goes to a cinema instead.
