Germaine, or Germie for short, moves her can across the street from Oscar, who immediately falls in love.
Oscar's infatuation initially overshadows his innate grumpiness, as he does everything to please her and Germaine assumes he's not a true Grouch. After a frustrated Oscar finally loses his temper and starts behaving like himself again, Germaine is impressed and the pair have a junkyard picnic of cabbage-ade and sardine and jelly sandwiches.
