Character description

Upon meeting Phillip, who was a nephew and heir to the estate of a Warren Davis, an eccentric rich tycoon who had recently died, who regularly visited the Arcade Flower Shop where Janet works, and who after time befriended her. Jack distrusted his motives; he believes that Phillip had designs on retrieving an imitation Chinese vase, which was only worth about $25, but which he thinks is worth much more. Phillip's uncle had bequeathed the vase to Janet in the reading of his will, at which Janet, Jack, Phillip and other relatives of the tycoon attended.

During a brief courtship, only the misunderstanding between Jack, Janet and Phillip is cleared up concerning Phillip's motives, and after the imitation vase is accidentally broken, Janet and Phillip begin a quick whirlwind romance, and get married in the apartment, honeymoon down in Mexico Beaches and eventually start the married life together.
