Uncle Fletcher promises to take Sade and her good friend Ruthie Stembottom shopping. However, he fools around with his shoestring and fouls up the proposed timeline, so much so that Ruthie calls and cancels and will go shopping alone.
In Uncle Fletcher's favor, I will say that Ruthie probably would not have been as quick to leave if this whole episode didn't have to do with last-minute Christmas shopping. Being December 21st, you know that's exactly what the girls had in mind.
You can also imagine Uncle Fletcher standing up and telling his niece "Sadie" that he would protect the girls from purse-snatchers and the like. If it weren't for those darn triple knots...
The title is one I have given the episode purely for identification purposes.
