Editor's Note: I love how Allen inspired generosity in others as when the man let him spend the night in the auditorium for free and now the man who wants to make him a crutch. 

Nerves are still jumping in the run-up to the wedding.  What were they fighting over?  And waht are felts?  I was thinking warm clothes for the winter but I couldn't find a proper reference.
