Alfred, Macy janitor:

At the end of the film, Susan refers to Fred Gailey as her Uncle, this is not mentioned at any other point during the film. During this time period, male adult family friends were often referred to as 'Uncle'. Adult females were ' Aunt'. Addressing an adult by their first name would have been disrespectful. Using Mr. or Miss would have been too formal for the closeness felt for a family friend or in this case, a mother's potential husband.
