“Barefoot in the Park” quotes(1967)
Plot – After their honeymoon, Paul and Corie Bratter move into their new home, which Paul hates and Corie loves. One of their neighbors, Victor Velasco, immediately befriends Corie. She then decides to organize for Velasco to meet her mother, Ethel Banks, thinking to lift the depressed woman's spirits. The four dine out and while Velasco offers to take Mrs Banks home, Corie argues with Paul because he is too serious. The morning after, the Bratters have to deal with an expected situation: Corie's mother has spent the night at Velasco's place, but both the woman and Velasco swear to their honest behavior and affected by the dinner misbehavior they decide to spend more time together. Corie is surprised at the way things between her mother and Velasco are going, the same reaction Mrs Banks has when she learns that her daughter wants to divorce Paul. She then persuades Corie that her behavior is not proper for a wife. As a result Corie goes out to meet her husband and she finds him walking drunk barefoot in the park. It is a fast reconciliation because the newlyweds have learned to understand each other better.
