Wilma brings her friends to her father Colonel Slaghoople's birthday party. It's the first time they discover that she's an extremely wealthy heiress, and as such, the party is fraught with tension. When Wilma's alone for a while, her father enters with a box:
Colonel Slaghoople: I brought you a little something for your birthday!
Wilma: Daddy, it's your birthday.
Colonel Slaghoople: Oh! Well, these won't fit me...
(He opens the box to reveal a pearl necklace—Wilma's most iconic piece of jewelry.)
Wilma: Oh, Daddy...
Colonel Slaghoople: I know you don't like showy things, but...Wilma, dear, I want you to know that no matter what you do, your daddy will always love you, and couldn't be prouder of you.
