The actress Carla, Clayton’s (Lewis) love interest since his youth, leaves him her illegitimate triplets - and Clayton is quite carried away with the unexpected luck. The dedication with which he handles the babies is so endearing and inspiring, that we are deeply indignant with him when an ignorant court put the babies up for adoption. Here is Lewis' character once widely more than just the likable childish slob; he seems (reasonably) grown up.
