Imoor, Jacqueline (Mrs. Morton Goldaper #1)

 

I wonder if this is what happened:

Gary and friend the day after the wedding:

Gary: Jackie discovered the Bissell Rug Shampooer in my shower so now she knows and wants to see me without 'it'.

Friend: Well, let's see what you look like.

(Gary takes off his toupee)

Friend: After the annulment you can come and live with us.

Italy--country that Lucy almost turned upside down by getting into a fight with a grape stomper, turning blue from grape juice, and misplacing her passport at the border.
