I would say this is a case of "you can't change 'em" but really this is simply false advertising

also it's pretty obvious that their child was going to be a regular at the optometrist

Exactly! He was advertising as normie, she was posing as a carefree girl with a sense of humor. They built their house on lies, so it was doomed from the start.

And yes, Coke bottle lenses run in the family. Hell, even distant cousin MMMMM has 'em.

Nah, Alain dresses like that now, but he didn't meet Giselle until the mid-80s. They met during a time when Alain was worried that he was a relic of the 1970s, so he briefly updated his look. Let's just say that the worries yielded to typical Nerveaux self-assurance pretty quickly...

Love how Alvery immediately agrees with Daddy here! :-D

Of course. In Alvery’s mind, Dad = Good and right, Mom = Bad and wrong.
