  • Angel. Angel's temper

Other Title

  • Angel's temper


  • Angelique, known as Angel, moves from France to the United States to marry American architect, John Smith. The newlyweds set up housekeeping in Los Angeles, California. She tries her best to be a good housewife but sometimes runs into problems as she learns English and adapts to her new life and culture. In this episode Johnny is concerned that Angel loses her temper too easily. She vows to stay calm for one month, no matter what. After several weeks, Johnny starts to miss Angel's outbursts, so he contrives to "accidentally" sell her precious antique Napoleon clock. She loses her temper when she finds out, but Johnny reassures her that the sale was a joke. All is well until Johnny realizes that the man who purchased the clock was not the fake buyer he expected, but an actual collector. He buys the clock back and order is restored.
