It’s a clear-blue-sky-kind-of-day, the sprinklers are on, and George Banks is headed off to work. Walking out to his car, he looks back as Franck Eggelhoffer, the eccentric wedding planner, skips into the house. He says, “Oddly enough, knowing Franck was at the house made me feel better. Although I have no idea what he did there all day…”
The furniture has been moved out of the way and we hear Franck’s thickly accented voice instructing very pregnant Annie and Nina through the “baby workout.” The women are wearing gray unitards and Franck, of course, is prancing around in his fancy vest and tie.
In the summer’s heat, their arms pumping, legs lunging, and breathing heavily, Annie and Nina are trying to stay as comfortable as possible until their upcoming due dates.
