Herman and Lily's 100th wedding anniversary is fast approaching. Thinking the other has completely forgotten about it, both of them withdraw $1,000 from their bank account, and both checks bounce. Still wanting to surprise the other with an amazing gift, Herman and Lily individually acquire part time jobs at the Cleaver Employment Agency. Working as welders at the Crosby Shipyards, but not recognizing each other on account of the heavy welder's masks, Herman and Lily start flirting with each other. Tensions rise as the couple simultaneously discover each others 'secret' identity.

According to a list compiled by librarians at the Chicago Public Library's Information Center (December 2000), engraved marble or granite would be the traditional 90th Anniversary gift. Unfortunately, the list ends there. See more
