["I Could Have Danced All Night" plays]

Cass: Thank you very much.

Wally: Interesting. Even more interesting.

Cass: Nicole, you look absolutely fabulous.

Nicole: Thank you.

Cass: Doesn't she, Anna Linka?

Anna: Fabulous.

Cass: Hello, John.

John: Cass.

Cass: I'm glad you're getting out. You need a break.

Nicole: You, too. I know the two of you are going to have all sorts of fascinating conversation.

John: Fascinating --

Anna: "Conversation"? What she mean?

Cass: Forget it, honey. Let's save our energy for later, ok? Let's mingle.

Wally: Would you just look at her.

Mitch: I am, Wally. I am.

Wally: Yeah, it seems to me you've been looking at her pretty closely lately -- like something's on your mind, maybe?

Mitch: Yeah, Wally.

Wally: Well, Mitch, are you going to tell your good buddy what it is that's on your mind?

Mitch: Marriage.

Felicia: Oh, Gloria Loring, hi.

Gloria: Well, it's not Sophie Tucker, honey.

[Felicia and Gloria laugh]

Gloria: How you doing? Happy New Year!

Felicia: Oh, Happy New Year. It's been so long.

Gloria: I know.

Felicia: Now, listen, are you ready to do that favor I asked of you?

Gloria: I am all prepared.

Felicia: Great! Thank you.

Vicky: Hi! Happy New Year!

Jamie: Sorry we're late. It's all my fault.

Lisa: It's all his fault.

Jamie: Here, let me take your coat.

Lisa: Thanks.

Vicky: Oh, wow. Well, you look beautiful.

Lisa: Thank you. This is great. I love this!

Jamie: Very nice. It's very 1988.

Vicky: Ooh! You know, you can just hang these in the closet over there.

Jamie: Thank you.

Vicky: Come on in.

Michael: Hey, Vick.

Vicky: Hey, dad. You didn't have to get all dressed up.

Michael: Ah, well, you know, they frown on blue jeans at tops these days.

Vicky: Tops? I thought you were going to stay here and party with us.

Michael: With you guys? No, I'm going out to do some serious partying.

Vicky: Ooh. It sounds like it could be dangerous.

Michael: Well, I hope so. Just don't expect me until sunup, all right?

Vicky: Hmm. Right. It's just that --

Michael: What?

Vicky: Bridget told me Donna's going to be at tops tonight.

Bridget: Miss Donna? There's a letter here for you. It came by special messenger. It must be very important.

Donna: Bridget! Oh, you've got to help me zipper!

Bridget: Oh, Miss Donna, you look lovely.

Donna: But it's stuck! I can't do anything with it.

Bridget: Come on, turn around!

Donna: Oh.

Bridget: Now, wait --

Donna: All right, all right, all right.

Bridget: Now, stop wiggling.

Donna: Well, come on!

Bridget: Wait, stop wiggling.

Donna: All right!

Bridget: There.

Donna: Are you sure I look all right? Ow!

Bridget: Well, if you would stop wiggling, I wouldn't hurt you.

Donna: All right.

Bridget: Come on, dear. Now, hold still. There we go.

Donna: Good.

Bridget: There we are.

Donna: Are you sure I look all right?

Bridget: Oh, my dear, you look better than all right. You're a vision.

Donna: Oh, are you sure it's ok?

Bridget: Well, it's Mr. Michael's favorite dress, isn't it?

Donna: As a matter of fact, it is.

[Donna and Bridget laugh]

[Doorbell rings]

Bridget: Now, who could it be at this time of night?

Donna: Oh, well, I'm -- I'm sure that's Charles.

Bridget: Who?

Charles: I'm Charles McBride.

Mac: Oh, no, not until I make the announcement.

Rachel: Well, when are you going to make the announcement? I'm dying of curiosity.

Mac: Sam Fowler has to be here first, and why isn't he here yet? Amanda did invite him, didn't she?

Rachel: Yes, I'm sure she did.

Mac: It would just like him to stay home and sulk or something.

Rachel: Mac, I'm sure he's going to be here.

Mac: Why do you say that?

Rachel: Because he'll want to see Amanda. They spent all afternoon together. I think things are easing up.

Amanda: Oh, no, they're not.

Mac: Darling?

Rachel: What's wrong?

Amanda: We had a fight this afternoon.

Rachel: About what ?

Amanda: He says, we're from two different worlds and we'll never get along .

Mac: Well, he's got to come.

Amanda: Why?

Amanda: Because I don't want to make the announcement without him.

Amanda: What announcement?

Mac: Oh -- the new "brava" cover.

Amanda: You finally decided on the design.

Mac: I had to wait until all the market research was in. It was almost unanimously in favor of Sam's concept.

Amanda: You're going to use Sam's?

Mac: Hmm.

Amanda: Great.

Rachel: Honey, this falling-out you two had --

Amanda: It was a fight, mom.

Rachel: Well, was it so bad he won't show up at all?

Amanda: Believe me, he's not going to be here.

Mac: Well, what if you talked to him again? Is there nothing you could say to make him change his mind?

Amanda: You know Sam. What do you think?

Rachel: Leave it to me.

Amanda: What are you going to do?

Rachel: Get him over here.

Amanda: And how are you going to do that?

Rachel: I'll handle Sam. He deserves his recognition.

Mac: Yes, even if he has behaved like a complete swine to our daughter.

Rachel: Darling. Would you two be hostess for me for a minute?

Liz: Well, guests are asking questions --

Ada: Where are you going?

Rachel: I have a mission.

Amanda: Daddy, he's not going to show up, not even for the cover. He doesn't want anything to do with me or my family.

Mac: Oh, sweetheart.

Michael: Happy New Year, everybody, all right?

All: Happy New Year, Michael!

Michael: Bye-bye! Hey, Adam! Bye, Adam.

Adam: Was it something I said?

Vicky: I was worried you wouldn't come. Happy New Year.

Adam: Well, you know how popular I am. I had -- let's see -- three other parties to go to.

Vicky: Oh, yes, well, I should have guessed. I'm sorry.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Vicky: Come in.

[Jamie chuckles]

Vicky: Hey, look who I brought in!

Adam: Lisa. Cousin James. Ahem.

Jamie: Talk about making an entrance, cousin Adam.

Adam: Hey, I'm not that late, am I? It's still 1987, last time I checked.

Vicky: Oh, yes, just in time for my long island iced tea.

Adam: Iced tea?

Jamie: Take my advice, cuz, and go easy on those.

Vicky: Oh, don't be such a party pooper. You're going to love it.

Adam: I've heard of -- what is it? -- New England clam chowder, but long island iced tea?

Vicky: Oh, yeah, yeah. Come on. Excuse us a second.

[Adam laughs]

Jamie: Speaking of party poopers --

Lisa: What?

Jamie: You're so quiet tonight. Why?

Lisa: I'm not quiet. I was just thinking.

Jamie: Thinking? On New Year's Eve?

Lisa: Yeah. Why not?

Jamie: Well, that's not proper! You're supposed to be carefree and flamboyant and uninhibited.

Lisa: Uninhibited, huh?

Jamie: There really is a problem, isn't there?

Lisa: What we talked about the other day.

Jamie: Us?

Lisa: I guess I just don't know what to think about us anymore

[Cass laughs]

Cass: Anna, you crack me up. Thank you.

Wally: Mitch, why don't you tell me more?

Mitch: There's nothing more to tell, Wally.

Wally: But you did say "marriage"?

Mitch: Yeah.

Wally: "Marriage" as in "for richer, for poorer, for better, for worse --" marriage?

Mitch: Love and marriage.

Wally: Does that mean -- are you planning-- ok, no more questions. Yes, sir. I know everything I need to know.

Felicia: Well!

Mary: Hi.

Felicia: Isn't this a nice surprise, a really nice, nice surprise.

Mary: Don't go jumping to any conclusions.

Felicia: Who, me?

Mary: We are just two friends, friends who are enjoying an evening together. Isn't that right?

Vince: Yeah -- just friends.

Felicia: Of course -- just friends. Of course. I mean, what else would I be thinking? Friends.

Chad: Excuse me, Mary. Pardon me.

Mary: Hi, Chad.

Chad: Hi. Do you know if Scott picked up Dawn from the hospital?

Mary: Yeah, about a half an hour ago. They went home to change.

Chad: Oh. And she was feeling better?

Mary: Oh, yeah, great. Yeah, she was so thrilled to be out of the hospital. She looks wonderful. They'll be here soon.

Chad: I just hope this is a really good night for her.

Mary: Yeah. You did find a singer?

Felicia: One of the very best.

Mary and Chad: Who?

Felicia: No, no, no, no. This is going to be a surprise. In fact, I'm going to introduce her in -- in just a little while. Paul, would you do me a favor? Would you seat the McKinnons, who are just friends. All right? There is something I have to do. Will you excuse me?

Mary: Yes, of course, you do. Of course you do. We understand.

Felicia: Yeah --

Mary: You just go do it.

Felicia: Thank you.

Jason: Hey, Vinny. Mary.

Felicia: You really are staring.

Mitch: At the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.

Felicia: Well, hello. You know, this night is going to be one long surprise. Hi, Donna.

Donna: Charles, would you get me a drink?

Charles: I'd love to get you one. What would you like?

Donna: Club soda.

Charles: Soda?

Donna: Mm-hmm, with a lime.

Charles: You've got it.

Donna: Thank you.

Nicole: Too bad, Donna.

Donna: What? What is?

Nicole: Well, you're too early. You made your grand entrance and Michael isn't even here yet.

Donna: Oh. Well, as long as Michael gets here sometime.

Nicole: Is he going to recognize what's-his-name?

Donna: Charles. And, yes, I would say he would. You see, Charles showed up some time shortly after Michael and I were married, and Michael won't admit it, but he was -- he was very jealous.

Nicole: I just hope it works, Donna.

Donna: Oh, it's going to. It will.

Nicole: Well, it could also backfire.

Donna: You know, whatever happened to my sunshiny Pollyanna little sister, hmm? Oh. Well you don't have to answer that.

Nicole: Huh?

Donna: Well, I see -- I see what happened.

Nicole: What are you talking about?

Donna: Who is that woman Cass is dancing with?

Nicole: You call that dancing?

Donna: She's gorgeous, isn't she?

Nicole: Donna, you think that bothers me?

Donna: Yes, I do.

Nicole: Well, you're wrong. You're wrong, Donna. If Cass wants to cover his loneliness by pretending to be a man about town with miss iron curtain of 1946, just let him.

Donna: I think Cass seems to be the master of the cover-up, hmm?

Nicole: Yeah, it does look that way, doesn't it?

Wally: Hey, Michael!

Michael: Hey, Wally. How are you?

Wally: Great.

Michael: Good. The place really looks like it's jumping. Ell, .Wally: Actually, this is just a warm-up for the real fireworks.

Michael: Fireworks, huh? Well, I could use a little fireworks.

Wally: Oh, don't worry, you're going to get them.

Michael: Really? Well, in that case, I better fortify myself with orange juice, huh?

Wally: Right. Why don't you make it a double.

Michael: Ok.

Jamie: Lisa, what is it?

Lisa: I guess I'm uncomfortable.

Jamie: With me?

Lisa: Yeah. A little.

Jamie: Why?

Lisa: Christmas Eve. It's made you back off.

Jamie: Lisa, nothing could make me back off from you. I love you.

Lisa: I love you too, Jamie.

Jamie: I've thought about marriage.

Lisa: I know. You've been married before.

Jamie: Lisa, when a marriage doesn't work -- I just don't want to fail again.

Vicky: Hey! You know, you two look like you're at a funeral. Now, come on, cheer up. It's New Year's Eve. Try one of these. This might help -- my infamous long island iced tea.

Jamie: Thank you.

Vicky: You know, what else do we need? A hat. Hats. Stupid people running around always gets a party rolling, don't you think? The hats are right over there on the table.

Jamie: Would you like a hat?

Lisa: What the heck.

Vicky: Is he ok?

Lisa: Yeah. Why?

Vicky: Well, he just looks a little down in the dumps. You do, too.

Lisa: I think we're both a little tired.

Vicky: Well, then, let me give you this and then maybe this will help perk you up.

Lisa: Hmm, that's good. Is there liquor in there? I don't taste it.

Vicky: Oh, yeah. Just a little bit.

Lisa: You'd never know it.

Vicky: No. I think it tastes so good.

Rachel: Aha!

Sam: Mrs. Cory. What are you doing here?

Rachel: Looking for you.

Sam: And you came here?

Rachel: Well, I went to your loft first, but you weren't there, so I thought and thought and thought, and I thought, where would be the most depressing place to be on New Year's Eve? And I thought an empty restaurant. So I thought I'd come over here and, Voila, here you are.

Sam: Mrs. Cory, I really don't want to get into this tonight.

Rachel: I have no intention of getting into anything tonight.

Sam: No, I mean Amanda.

Rachel: I know exactly what you mean, and I want to talk about her, so relax.

Sam: Nothing's wrong, right?

Rachel: No. It's been a terrific evening so far.

Sam: Well, you've come to the wrong place. Your evening's going to go straight downhill from here.

Rachel: I don't think so. I want you to come to my party.

Sam: You're kidding.

Rachel: I never kid, Sam.

Sam: Now, why would I want to come to your party?

Rachel: Because I'm insisting.

Sam: I don't understand.

Rachel: I'm not asking you to understand, Sam. Something very exciting is going to happen tonight, and I thought you should be the first to hear.

Sam: What?

Rachel: Something exciting that's happening tonight that I wanted you to be the first to hear.

Sam: Could you give me a hint?

Rachel: I could. Mac is going to be making an announcement tonight, and I thought the press just might want to talk to you after it.

Sam: You mean --

Rachel: Are you coming, Sam?

Sam: Yeah.

Felicia: Do you know him?

Michael: Huh?

Felicia: The man that Donna's dancing with. Do you know him?

Michael: Yeah. That's Charles McBride. Donna used to date him years ago.

Wally: Must be kind of surprising to see them together again.

Michael: Well, it's kind of surprising seeing Donna dating so soon after --

Wally: Right, right, right.

Michael: Then again, maybe it's not too surprising.

Felicia: What's not?

Michael: Well, knowing Donna, she could be doing this just for the effect.

Wally: She's one smart cookie, that girl.

Michael: Smart? Why?

Wally: Well, it's working, isn't it?

[Felicia chuckles]

Donna: Oh, no! Oh, don't drop me!

Charles: Never, never.

Michael: Looks like the old Donna we know and love.

Nicole: She might be overdoing it. Less may be more in this case.

John: I don't know. I'd rather see her like that than how she has been.

Nicole: Michael's looking, but I don't think he's buying.

John: You see that diffident, disinterested look on his face?

Nicole: Uh-huh.

John: That means that he's about to start throwing furniture.

Nicole: Really?

John: Yeah. I know that look. He loves her.

Nicole: I think you're right. I think he really does love her. Maybe more is more.

John: Well, I'm going to get us a couple of real drinks, all right?

Nicole: Ok.

Jason: I know your face.

John: I'll be damned.

Jason: John Hudson, it's been a long time. How you been?

John: Just fine.

Felicia: Ladies and gentlemen, friends, thank you. Is everybody having fun?

All: Yeah!

Felicia: Good, good. Well, the fun really hasn't even begun yet, because we have a very special artist with us tonight that's really going to help us bring in New Year's eve. Her song last year was number one in the nation -- "friends and lovers" -- you all know it -- and she just is coming out with a wonderful new album this spring, and we're going to get a little sampling from that album tonight. She's going to sing something called "somebody." All right, ladies and gentlemen, here, live at tops, on New Year's eve, it is my great pleasure to introduce to you the very talented, the very beautiful Gloria Loring. Gloria.

[Cheers]

[music plays]

Gloria: I've been lonely for too long don't know why and what went wrong deep inside of me I feel the kind of truth that love reveals and I know there's somebody somebody waiting for me yes, I know there's somebody somebody waiting for me

Vicky: I'm sorry you guys have to leave. Good night. Good night. Thanks for coming. Happy New Year. Happy New Year! Bye. Good night. Sorry you have to go, but Happy New Year.

[Music plays]

Lisa: Anyone want a refill?

Adam: No. Thanks.

Lisa: Jamie?

Jamie: No, I've had my fill, thanks. So have you.

Lisa: I'm thirsty.

Adam: That stuff's pretty potent, Lisa.

Lisa: Oh, come on, it's only iced tea.

Adam: It's not just iced tea. That's long island iced tea.

Lisa: Well, you haven't even tried it.

Adam: It's 90 proof, Lisa.

Lisa: So? This is a celebration, right?

Jamie: You can't celebrate if you're asleep.

Lisa: I'm a big girl, Jamie. I can handle it.

Adam: Well, hello, beautiful. How'd you like to dance?

Vicky: Ooh, I would love to. But you have a call in the kitchen.

Adam: No, no, no, no, I hope this isn't work.

Vicky: Yeah, I'll keep my fingers crossed. Well, Cheryl, are you having a good time?

Cheryl: Oh, no.

Vicky: "Oh, no"?

Cheryl: I can't believe how late it is. I got to go.

Nathan: What's the hurry?

Cheryl: I have to get to tops to hear dawn's song.

Man: Shouldn't we get going, too? You said you wanted to go to that other party?

Julie Ann: Yeah, I have to, or Amanda will kill me if I don't get there before midnight. I'll get our coats.

Vicky: What is going on? Is everybody leaving?

Nathan: Not everybody.

Vicky: Oh.

Julie Ann: We had a terrific time, Vicky.

Vicky: Oh, good.

Man: It was great. Great time. Thank you.

Adam: Ahem. I thought you said you were going to keep your fingers crossed?

Vicky: Adam, you're kidding?

Adam: No, I got to go back to headquarters.

Nathan: This is turning into a very small party.

Adam: Listen, thanks for having me.

Cheryl: It was fun.

Vicky: Oh --

Julie Ann: Sorry we have to leave.

Cheryl: Yeah, I'll see you later. Thanks again! Happy New Year.

Julie Ann: Bye-bye.

Nathan: Happy New Year.

Vicky: Happy New Year.

Jamie: Oh, what happened? Did somebody drop a neutron bomb or something?

Vicky: You know, I think we all should go out in the street and ask people to come up here and have a party with us.

Jamie: Oh, we can have a good time, just the four of us.

Vicky: No.

Lisa: Yeah, this is great. Now we -- we can really relax.

Vicky: Lisa, are you ok?

Lisa: Yeah, I'm great. Come on. Let's dance. Let's dance, yeah.

Mac: Sam Fowler's anger has cost him his own big moment. Excuse me, Liz. Ladies, gentlemen, family, friends, fellow workers, tonight is the night we say out with the old, in with the new. Well, this year we're not going to just say it. We're going to do it. The old "brava" is out, dead, gone to the great magazine rack in the sky. Beginning with the march issue, "brava" will have a whole new look, starting with a brand-new cover format, the first since 1978. Well, gang, what do you think? Unfortunately, the young man responsible for designing our new format isn't here tonight --

Rachel: Yes, he is. He's right here.

Mac: Well, in that case, I say how about a great big hand for Mr. Sam Fowler.

Julie Ann: So what did we miss?

Zack: Oh, hey, hon. How you doing?

Julie Ann: Good.

Zack: Hey, how's it going?

Man: That's a great jacket.

Zack: All right, good, good.

Julie Ann: Is that the new cover?

Zack: Yeah, thanks to Sam Fowler.

Julie Ann: You're kidding? That's terrific! That's great. Amanda must be thrilled.

Zack: Amanda?

Rachel: Mac is right. The energy and the vitality were terrific. It's wonderful work, Sam.

Sam: I appreciate you saying so, Mrs. Cory.

Matthew: Keep it up.

Sam: Thanks, Matthew.

Rachel: Hey, Matthew, you help me get the noisemakers, ok? But tonight they're probably going to be redundant.

Amanda: I'm so proud of you.

Vicky: This is just terrific. It's in New York. Have you ever been to New York, Lisa?

Lisa: Mm-hmm.

Vicky: Yeah, I just think it's the most exciting town in the world. Don't you?

Lisa: Mm-hmm.

Nathan: Vicky. Sorry.

Vicky: Don't say it.

Nathan: They are a little shorthanded at the lab.

Vicky: Oh.

Nathan: Maybe I can come back later. If there's a party to come back to.

Vicky: Yeah. Just give me a call before you come, ok?

Nathan: Sure. Listen, thank you for a lovely evening. And happy New Year.

Vicky: Happy New Year to you, Nathan. Take care. Have a nice night.

Nathan: Ok.

Vicky: And then there were three.

Jamie: And one of them is asleep.

Vicky: Oh, no.

Jamie: Out like a light.

Vicky: Jamie, how much did she have to drink?

Jamie: Too much.

Vicky: Well, is she going to be all right? Is she going to be sick?

Jamie: It just makes her sleepy.

Vicky: I feel so bad.

Jamie: It wasn't your fault.

Vicky: What are we going to do?

Jamie: We'll make the best of it, I guess.

Vicky: Absolutely! Absolutely. We will just celebrate New Year's together. With Lisa in mind, of course. Cheers.

Gloria: Somebody somebody waiting for me yes, I know there's somebody somebody waiting for me I'm gonna to find somebody yes, I know I'm gonna to find somebody yes, someday, in some way I'll find someone I'm gonna find somebody somebody somebody somebody like you

Gloria: And I know that somebody oh, I know there's someone

Gloria: Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you very much. Thank you for making me feel so welcome. Mr. Barnes, would you come on up here. I need a little help on this one because we have something exciting we're going to do, and that is welcome in the New Year with a new song. And that would be nice enough, but I think even more wonderful is the fact that this song was written by Bay City's own Dawn Rollo. And it is a beautiful song. It's called "Waverly Place." And, Dawn, this is for you.

Gloria: I was lookin' through the window past the courtyard through the streets below and the rain was like a river carrying reflections in its flow I remember other courtyards other rainy days when your footsteps climbed the crooked stairway Waverly place Waverly place your picture only I can see made more vibrant with the years and as the sadness fades with memory the love becomes more clear yellow candles on the mantle dress the shabby room in amber light I was 20 you were older you would lead me gently through the night and the nights were all that mattered and I lived for you now when I remember I go back to Waverly place Waverly place Waverly place Waverly place

Bianca: Well, that's --

Dawn: Thank you so much for singing my song.

Gloria: It's a great song.

Dawn: Thank you.

Gloria: Felicia told me what you've been dealing with, and I just wish I could do more.

Dawn: What you did tonight I will never forget, never.

Scott: Neither will I. Thank you both. Now can we celebrate? Hmm?

Dawn: Yeah.

Felicia: Yeah.

Gloria: Bye.

Dawn: Bye.

Scott: Bye.

Gloria: What a brave kid.

Nicole: I really don't know how she's doing it. Thanks.

Chad: Whoa!

Vince: Whoa! Whoa! All right, go easy, go easy!

Chad: Oh, top 40. Top 40 all the way!

Scott: Top 40? Top two! What are you talking about?

Vince: You guys are dumb. That's a standard, like "stardust."

Chad: Whoa!

Dawn: She is a wonderful singer.

Mary: And it's a gorgeous song.

Cheryl: I didn't know you could write music.

Dawn: Did you like it?

Scott: I loved it. I love you, too.

Dawn: I love you.

Felicia: Ok, everybody, guess what! Countdown! Five --

All: Four, three, two, one -- Happy New Year!

["Auld Lang Syne" plays]

Vince: Happy New Year! Happy New Year, friend.

Mary: No, I'm giving you, friend, something.

Scott: I love you.

Dawn: I love you. I can't believe it.

Scott: Yeah.

Cass: Do they do this kind of thing in your country?

Anna: We do everything in my country.

John: I think this is going to be your year.

Nicole: I hope it's a better year for both of us.

John: I'm going to find us some more champagne.

Nicole: Ok.

Wally: Excuse me.

Felicia: Oh. Here we go again, pal.

Wally: Oh, Felicia, this is getting to be a habit.

Felicia: Yeah, but one I never want to break.

Wally: Aw. Happy New Year. Happy New Year, Mitch.

Mitch: Happy New Year, Wally.

Cass: Well, partner --

Nicole: Yes?

Cass: What do you say we usher in the New Year properly?

Nicole: Sure.

Cass: Happy New Year. I hope 1988 is filled with everything that you want.

Nicole: You, too.

Donna: Happy New Year.

Charles: Happy New Year.

Charles: Donna, I wish you the happiest of New Years. Perhaps the man you should be spending it with is over at the bar.

Donna: Thank you, Charles.

Donna: Happy New Year, Michael.

Michael: Happy New Year.

Vicky: Five, four, three, two -- Happy New Year! Whoo!

Jamie: Happy New Year, Vicky.

Vicky: Frame.

Jamie: What?

Vicky: When it becomes midnight, people are supposed to kiss, right?

Jamie: Right.

Vicky: Well?

Jamie: Happy New Year, Vicky.

Vicky: You're worried about Lisa, aren't you?

Jamie: Yeah, I hope you don't mind us sitting around.

Vicky: Mind?

Jamie: Well, you could be at a party.

Vicky: Yeah, yeah -- I would rather be right here.

Jamie: I hope she doesn't feel too bad tomorrow.

Vicky: Well, I feel so guilty.

Jamie: Well, you didn't do anything.

Vicky: I ruined your two New Year's eve together.

Jamie: It's not ruined. It's just different.

Vicky: Oh, well, that's one way of looking at it.

Jamie: Listen, maybe I'd better get her home.

Vicky: Home? No, no, no! You can't leave. Hey, look, we said we were going to party, and party we will. Come on.

Jamie: What -- what -- where are we going?

Vicky: To the window. Come on!

Jamie: What for?

Vicky: You'll see. Ready for this? Ready? Ready? Happy New Year! Come on, now. Come on.

Jamie: Oh, no, no.

Vicky: Come on! Jamie, come on. Come on, scream it.

Jamie: Happy New Year.

Vicky: Jamie, louder, now.

Jamie: Happy ne-- happy New Year!

Vicky: Whoo-hoo! See?

Jamie: I can't stop now.

Vicky: All right. Wait. You like noisemakers?

Jamie: No, I love noisemakers. I use them every day.

Vicky: Ok. Ok, ready?

Jamie: Yeah.

Vicky: Happy New Year!

Jamie: Happy New Year.

Vicky: Like them?

Jamie: I love them. There's nothing like a loud, ugly noise to lift your spirits.

Vicky: Right, right. Whoa, whoa, wait for this.

Jamie: What?

Vicky: This is the grand finale.

Jamie: Oh, you got more? Happy New Year!

[Jamie blows noisemaker]

Vicky: Happy New Year! Whoo! This is such fun! Oh!

Jamie: What would New Year's be like without having someone throw confetti in your face?

Vicky: Of course, of course. Great party, huh?

Jamie: Oh, it's a long party.

Vicky: Yeah, thanks.

Jamie: No, I'm sorry. Actually, I'm having a great time.

Vicky: Oh, yeah?
