"Three Sundays in a Week" depicts a grumpy Uncle Rumgudgeon who refuses to grant his nephew Bobby permission to marry his daughter and, therefore, inherit a portion of Rumgudgeon's estate. The uncle, being sly, says he would only offer his blessing when "three Sundays came together in one week." Determined, with comedic effect, the traveling nephew finds a way to have three Sundays fall in one week. Two sea captains are confused by the date, both having come from different time zones and because of how they travel. One swears that yesterday was Sunday, while the other swears that's tomorrow. In fact, the day of their conversation was a Sunday. In other words, bringing these perceptions together, even Rumgudgeon admits these are "Three Sundays all in a row!"
