Yes Means No
Yes Means No
Young Teddy Lawson is in bad with his father. He tells Dad he wants to marry Edith and needs cash for honeymoon expenses. Dad hits the ceiling, claiming that Teddy, who works for him, has no backbone, having never learned to say "No" to customers wanting easy credit. Father agrees, however, to give Teddy $100 every time he says "No" during lunch hour. Teddy overreaches himself and nearly ruins the business. But all ends well and the young people are ready for their honeymoon with plenty of Dad's money to their credit.
by Howard Emmett Rodgers (added dialogue by Helen And Nolan Leary)
