Willona falls for a deaf man from J.J.'s art class. The budding relationship appears to be heading to the altar in spite of the man's handicap.

Plot summaryEdit

J.J. (Jimmie Walker) invites his deaf art school classmate Walter Ingles (J.A. Preston) to dinner at the Evans house. Also at the table is Willona (Ja'net DuBois), who is recovering from yet another disastrous romance. Perhaps inevitably, Willona and Walter are attracted to one another -- but will the spectre of a marriage proposal spoil this cozy tête-à-tête?
