Announcer introduction: "Well, right now, it looks like as if the end of a long, long road is in sight... a road that began over 5 years ago in the Bronx, and is ending now at a little altar in Lastenbury, Connecticut. Sammy and Dora Mayer will soon be man and wife. For this is their wedding day! There will be many tears -- and many difficult leave-takings -- but there will also be much much joy and happiness. Certainly Molly and Jake and Rosie and Uncle David are happy... and though, for a while it seemed that Mrs. Mayer would never be reconciled to the marriage, there is no question that now she is only too glad to call Sammy, son! So let the bells ring. Let the congratulations pile up -- for Sammy will soon have a wife. And Molly's dream for Sammy has at long last come true... Listen..."

Announcer close: "And so, with this benediction Sammy and Dora become man and wife. Before them stretches a future of promise and joy -- a time of strength and hope in one another. Let the bells ring for them. Let the happiness that is in everyone's face, the happiness that shines through Molly's tears, shine eternally for the bride and groom. Can it be otherwise? For what should be, is. What was destined has occurred, Sammy and Dora are man and wife."
