The police eventually show up and are thoroughly confused when Georgiana tries to explain everything that has happened. Realizing that she is in love with Bob, Georgiana no longer wants revenge on Betty and invents a story that will convince Ralph that Betty did nothing wrong. With the way cleared, Georgiana and Bob get married.
