Where's Poppa? : What it the alternative ending?

What it the alternative ending?

Just saw this for the first time. Two messages here refer to the alternative "incest" ending, but don't say what it was. What was it???

Re: What it the alternative ending?

According to Danny Peary in his book Cult Movies, there was a third scene where Mommy drives Louise away........for good and the movie ends with George Segal, pretending to be Poppa, getting into bed with Ruth Gordon. Reiner changed it because he wanted an upbeat ending.

There is no "off" position on the genius switch.
