Most of the problems in this episode come from the fact that Ella Mae Chubber is, to put it bluntly, boy-crazy. Her fatherís insistence that she be married before the end of the day fails to help matters any. Although her propensity for kissing any good-looking guy who meets her is largely comical, there are women who go to the same extreme in real life. Such is the kind of woman described and denounced in Proverbs 7: "She is loud and defiant, her feet never stay at home; now in the street, now in the squares, at every corner she lurks" (7:11-12). Women should try to pattern themselves after the godly woman of Proverbs 31, and men would do well to heed the warnings of Solomon in Proverbs 5-7; both paths save an infinite amount of heartache and are more likely to bring blessing from staying within Godís guidelines.
