What was Frau Doktor Maynard's maiden name?
We exchange nods and smiles with a small motherly lady laden with shopping bags and, rather surprisingly, accompanied by a parrot on her shoulder! Hearing a young man calling for "Aunt Allie", we realise this must be Mrs Cunningham, and he must be Jack, the owner of Kiki the parrot.

What was this lady's maiden name?
We see a very touching scene, as Mrs Bhaer, Mrs Laurence, and Mrs Brooke lay flowers at their sister's grave.
