Sophia comes in and spoils the birthday party surprise. Dorothy and Rose offer to cancel the party. So a whole bunch of men come in from the lanai. Rose invited everyone in Blanche’s little black book. Suddenly, Blanche likes surprise parties again. Rose then starts to tell a St. Olaf story. Sophia takes out the cake but it looks more like a cookie. They all go into the living room. They yell surprise at Blanche. Blanche tells them her birthday is not for a week. Conga music starts and the men pour in from the lanai and everyone forms a conga line.
