Iris: There's nothing very complicated about it. I want you to release a cloud of snow over the guests at precisely 12:00. Of course it's artificial snow. What? I don't know, just do it! You're the electrician. Just do it! God, save me from incompetence. At least I don't have to explain everything to you.

Rachel: Well, that's not necessarily the case.

Iris: Well, I told you that you could choose whatever costumes you like for the footmen.

Rachel: Iris, I'm not here about the snowflake ball. Your father called last night.

Iris: Oh. And did you tell him that you didn't tell Sam you had financed the gallery, so he's very angry with you?

Rachel: I am going to wait until he comes back to tell him all about it, Iris.

Iris: He'll probably call this morning.

Rachel: If he speaks to you --

Iris: He always speaks to me.

Rachel: If he speaks to you, you're to say nothing about this to him. Is that clear?

Matt: Wait, you're sure you're not hungry?

Amanda: After the Belgian waffle?

Matt: Well, you didn't eat much.

Amanda: Yeah, I kept finding your fork in it.

Matt: Yeah, well, you said you didn't want it.

Amanda: It's all right, Matthew. Thank you taking me to breakfast.

Matt: You're welcome. Listen, let's go to lunch later. I have time between classes. We can --

Amanda: What is this sudden interest in taking your sister out to eat?

Matt: No -- no reason.

Amanda: Think I'm going to be wasting away because Sam and I are fighting?

Matt: Well --

Amanda: We're fine.

Matt: No, I just thought after what happened --

Amanda: It's a little misunderstanding, really. It's nothing to worry about. Don't you have class?

Matt: Uh, I have to talk to Mitch.

Amanda: Are you two ok?

Matt: Yeah, yeah.

Amanda: Oh, good. I'm glad.

Matt: Yeah, me, too. I want him to take some pictures of me and Josie at the snowflake ball.

Amanda: That's going to be some party.

Matt: Hey, listen, you're welcome to come with us. Come with us, yes.

Amanda: No, no. I'm going with Sam.

Matt: No, I just meant if he didn't go, then --

Amanda: Look, we're going to be fine, really. Don't worry about us.

Matt: Ok. All right.

Amanda: Thanks for breakfast.

Matt: You're welcome. Bye-bye.

Evan: Good morning, Amanda. Sam come home last night?

Amanda: We're working things out.

Evan: He didn't, did he?

[Alli fusses]

Sam: Alli? Whoa. Alli, hi.

Hi. Hey, you. What are you doing here all alone? Hi. What is Alli doing all alone?

Ada: I was down the hall at the incinerator. There was a lot of garbage. Hi, honey. Does that suitcase mean what I think it means? Sam?

Donna: Fun? Michael, please. You don't realize how difficult it is to coordinate a guest list like this.

Michael: Totally boggles my mind, Donna.

Donna: Well, I have been on the phone half the morning, you know.

Michael: I see -- twisting arms, cajoling, appealing to people? Is that it? Donna: All right, all right. I have been having fun. You know, I think I kind of like getting back into the social scene.

Michael: Well, Mikey's been keeping you very busy.

Donna: Well, that's true, but I have loved every minute of it.

Michael: I'll bet you have. Oh, by the way --

Donna: What?

Michael: How about it we take Mikey to see Santa Claus tomorrow?

Donna: Oh, Michael, that's a great idea. Oh, and you know what? We can get his picture made with Santa. I mean, wouldn't that be wonderful?

Michael: It's a great idea. I think Mikey kind of roots you when you get busy with all this snowball stuff.

Donna: Stuff? No wait just a minute -- I told you this is very important. Oh, I almost forgot.

Michael: What?

Donna: An idea that Iris had -- she is going to have all the guests brought in on horse-driven sleighs.

Michael: Donna, that's -- that -- that's going to be pretty expensive, isn't it?

Donna: Well, she's pulling out all the stops. You know, she really is a pretty amazing woman.

Michael: Well, then you should have an amazing party, Donna.

Donna: Hmm. Oh, I wonder who she's inviting.

Michael: What?

Donna: Iris -- I wonder who she's bringing to the party.

Michael: Well, I don't have the faintest idea. She'll find somebody, I'm sure.

Donna: Yeah. You know, I actually feel sorry for her.

Michael: Why?

Donna: Well, Michael, she's so driven. I mean, it's obvious that she has no one special in her life.

Michael: Huh.

John: Ahem.

Michael: John. Hey, buddy.

Donna: Oh! John.

Michael: How are you?

Donna: Hi, come on in.

John: Bridget said that you were up here getting dressed, so --

Michael: It's ok.

John: I was wondering if I could talk to you for a while, Mike.

Michael: Sure. Uh --

Donna: Yeah, uh -- oh, listen, I need to get going anyway. I want to stop by and see Marley before I go off traipsing into the countryside.

Michael: Country? What are you going to the country for?

Donna: Oh, yes, Iris and I are going to stop by and make sure that Sharlene has all the flowers right.

John: Oh, she will.

Donna: Right, right.

Michael: Uh, I'll tell you what, then -- why don't I just stop by and pick you up later?

Donna: That's a great idea.

Michael: Ok?

Donna: I will see you then.

Michael: Ok.

Donna: Bye-bye.

John: See you later, Donna.

Michael: So what's going on?

John: Just been doing a lot of thinking lately, Mike.

Michael: Sounds serious.

John: Yeah.

Michael: Well, what have you been thinking about?

John: About me, my life.

Michael: It's pretty important.

John: Mike, I need your advice.

Singer: Lots of mistletoe

Ken: Hey, Josie, have you seen my calculus notes anywhere?

Josie: Ripped up, yellow pages, looks like hieroglyphics?

Ken: Yeah, that would be them.

Josie: On the mantel.

Ken: Oh, great. Thanks.

Singer: All these things and more

Ken: Hey, what you looking at?

Josie: Dresses.

Ken: Get a little nippy feeding the chickens in that, wouldn't it?

Josie: It's for the snowflake ball.

Ken: Ah. Pretty fancy.

Josie: I want to look really nice.

Ken: You always look nice.

Singer: I see your smiling face

Josie: Well, thank you.

Singer: Like I've never seen before

Ken: Boy, wouldn't Matt go nuts if he saw you in that?

Josie: It's too expensive.

Ken: You -- you could get it, you know.

Josie: How, by stealing it?

Ken: No, I've helped you get money before.

Josie: Yeah, barely enough to even cover Matthewís Christmas present.

Ken: Well, there's more where that came from.

Josie: Kenny, I told you, I am not going to sing at that Christmas party you're planning.

Ken: Come on, it's just a few minutes.

Josie: I was way too embarrassed the first time. No way.

Ken: If I don't get a sexy Christmas carol for this party, my name on campus is going to be mud.

Josie: Well, I promise to always call you "Kenny."

Ken: Ok. That sure is a fancy dress.

Josie: I will have a new dress.

Ken: Oh, and how?

Josie: I've got some babysitting jobs lined up.

Ken: Josie, you'd have to baby-sit for every kid in Bay City to get that dress.

Josie: Well, my mom will lend me the money. She has some money put away.

Ken: So that's that?

Josie: That's that.

Ken: Ok. At least my parents will still love me.

Singer: All these things and more oh, baby

Singers: All these things and more

Sharlene: What's he so down about?

Josie: Oh, I don't know.

[Sharlene whistles]

Josie: What's -- what are you doing?

Sharlene: Checking to see how much money is in the emergency fund. It should be enough.

Josie: For what?

Sharlene: A new dress for the snowflake ball --

Josie: Oh, Mama.

Sharlene: Something that'll really catch John's eye. Oh.

Josie: John's?

Sharlene: Yeah, well, what did you think I was -- oh, did -- oh, Jos. Oh.

Iris: You know, none of this would've happened if you'd been more honest with me.

Rachel: I saw no reason to tell you, Iris.

Iris: Well, why didn't you tell daddy?

Rachel: What goes on between your father and me is none of your business.

Iris: Fine.

Rachel: So you're not to tell him anything when he calls today, all right?

Iris: Ok, mum's the word. You know, I'm as upset as anyone about Sam and Amanda.

Rachel: Sam and Amandaís relationship is just fine.

Iris: Well, I know Amanda works at it.

Rachel: What does that mean?

Iris: Well, it's just that two young people from such totally different backgrounds --

Rachel: All right, that's enough, Iris. You stay out of Sam and Amandaís relationship.

Iris: I was just trying to help.

Rachel: The way you tried to help Mac and me?

Iris: Rachel that was a long time ago.

Rachel: Just leave Sam and Amanda alone, all right?

Iris: I'm so fed up with people throwing up my past in my face.

Rachel: Well, then stop stirring things up.

Iris: Well, I just -- I just hope this is all finished by the time Dennis comes home.

Rachel: Dennis?

Iris: Yes. My son?

Rachel: I know who Dennis is.

Iris: I've invited him for Christmas.

Rachel: Did he say yes?

Iris: We, he -- he's very busy, but I'm sure he'll come. He knows how much it would mean to me. I know he'll come.

Auntie Rose: Oh, hello.

Lisa: Hi. Lisa Grady.

Auntie Rose: Oh, I remember you, all right. Oh, don't tell me -- you're not going to cancel your video and break all the hearts of my male clients, are you?

Lisa: No. Actually, I'd like to look at some.

Auntie Rose: Oh, wonderful. Good.

Lisa: I've never done this.

Auntie Rose: Oh, it is painless, I assure you, and it's much safer than bars.

Lisa: Well, actually, you see, I'm in a hurry.

Auntie Rose: Well, aren't we all? I am single myself.

Lisa: Oh, well, actually, it's because I have this special occasion.

Auntie Rose: Well.

Lisa: It's a ball.

Auntie Rose: A ball? Well, we are just going to have to find you a prince charming, aren't we? Are you ready?

Sam: I came by to see Alli. I'm going to put you down, little girl. Ok? There you go.

Sam: I also came by to pick up a few things.

Ada: What for? You live here.

Sam: I'm staying with Mitch for a couple of days.

Ada: Ah. You're running away.

Sam: I'm a little upset right now, Ada.

Ada: So is Amanda.

Sam: Yeah, I know that.

Ada: You can't work things out if you're not here.

Sam: I'm really not in the mood to work things out.

Ada: Sam, you have every right to be mad.

Sam: Thank you. I'm glad you understand that.

Ada: Rachel and Amanda should've told you about Rachelís investment upfront.

Sam: It wasn't an investment, Ada. It was a payoff. "Let's pay off some people so the poor son-in-law can get his lousy picture shown, and then while we're at it, why don't we pay off some reviewers so we can get great reviews?"

Ada: It wasn't like that.

Sam: I'm sitting there all night long with this stupid grin on my face, believing everything those people said.

Ada: Sam --

Sam: No, look, why didn't they tell me? I mean, they knew how I'd react if I found out the truth.

Ada: That's why they didn't tell you.

Sam: That's why I'm angry.

Ada: Amanda and Rachel are two of a kind. They lead with their hearts. Gets them into some pretty rocky situations.

Sam: Yeah, well, Amanda should've known better.

Ada: You're the one who should've known better. You should know your wife. She loves you. She'd do anything for you. We all would.

Sam: Including buying me a career?

Ada: Oh, Sam.

Sam: No, look, if the Cory's can't deal with the fact that I might fall on my face, then that's just too bloody bad.

[Alli fusses]

Sam: Forget it. It's ok, Alli. Come here, come here. It's ok. It's all right. Daddy's here, all right? It's ok.

Ada: Sam, I got a few errands to run. Think you can take care of Alli for a few minutes?

Sam: I like being with my daughter, Ada.

Ada: Good. Maybe she can talk some sense into you.

Sam: We'll show them, won't we, Alli? Yeah. Your daddy's going to make it, isn't he? Well, I'm glad you have faith in me. Shh.

[Alli fusses]

Sam: Oh. Oh, oh. Shh.

Amanda: Sam didn't move out. He's just staying with his brother.

Evan: It's ok.

Amanda: It's for a couple of days. That's it.

Evan: Sure.

Amanda: He's very proud. I mean, I actually think that it's good for him to be out by himself for a while. He'll come home soon.

Evan: Well, he'd be a fool if he didnít.

Amanda: I really don't think I want to discuss this anymore. Sam wouldn't appreciate it, me discussing our personal life.

Evan: Ok. If you -- if you need anything or need to talk --

Amanda: Thanks for helping me out the other night.

Evan: Oh, any time.

Amanda: Look, I've got to go. I'm doing the tape for Auntie Rose today.

Evan: Today?

Amanda: Yeah, well, I've got to write the article. I've got to keep busy.

Evan: Well, you have to be upbeat for those kind of things.

Amanda: I never let my personal life get in the way of my career.

Evan: Well, I tell you what I'm going to do -- I'm going to come along with you.

Amanda: You don't have to. That was Iris' idea, not mine.

Evan: You're definitely Rachel Coryís daughter.

Amanda: What?

Evan: Never mind. I'll tell you what -- I'm going to make a couple of phone calls and I'll be right back. Ok?

Iris: Amanda?

Amanda: Iris, hi.

Iris: Hi. You haven't called me.

Amanda: I'm sorry. I've just so been so busy. Evan and I were just leaving to go work on the video match assignment.

Iris: Well, if you need more time --

Amanda: No, no. I'll make the deadline.

Iris: Why don't you come in?

Iris: Amanda, I heard about Sam.

Amanda: Well, he's just staying with Mitch for a couple of days, that's all.

Iris: Well, I'm very sorry.

Amanda: It's all right, really.

Iris: I didn't mean to say anything. It just --

Amanda: You told him?

Iris: Well, didn't Rachel tell you, or Sam?

Amanda: No.

Iris: I'm surprised.

Amanda: Well, it doesn't matter anyway.

Iris: You know, misunderstandings sometimes happen.

Amanda: I just hope that Sam understands what I did.

Iris: He will. Just give him time.

Amanda: I will. And thank you, Iris, for talking to daddy, talking him into letting me do the assignment.

Iris: I wanted you to do it.

Amanda: I'm going to do a good job.

Iris: Of course you are. I know you will. I've got great faith in you.

Auntie Rose: Four Prince Charming's in a can. Oh, you're going to thank me for this.

Lisa: Am I?

Auntie Rose: Trust me, I have great instincts. Two years ago, a girl came in to see me, said she didn't want to go out with any redheads, didn't want to see anybody less than six feet tall.

Lisa: Uh-huh.

Auntie Rose: I put her together with a 5'7" Irishman named OíMalley. Last year they had twins. Redheads.

Lisa: Oh, well, I just want a date for the ball.

Auntie Rose: Well, he is in there. Now, do you know how to work this thing?

Lisa: Yeah.

Auntie Rose: Ok. Now, you just have a good time, and there's plenty more where that came from.

Lisa: Oh, well, I'm a nice person. There's got to be a nice man here, right? Ok, gentlemen, show me your stuff.

John: I went to see Mary the other day.

Michael: Why'd you go see Mary McKinnon?

John: She was a big help to Chris, and I just thought that maybe --

Michael: Does this have something to do with Chris?

John: In a way, I guess you could say that. It's just -- just not exactly --

Michael: Hey, tell me, man.

John: I've been having more and more nightmares Mike.

Michael: That's why you went to see Mary McKinnon.

John: Yeah. I'm just wondering if -- if you still have them.

Michael: No, I -- I donít.

John: When did they stop?

Michael: I don't know, John. Mine stopped when -- right after I came back to Bay City.

John: You got back and found your family.

Michael: Come on, sit down. You -- you remember what it was like for me, man. I was just like you. You know, I'd lay down at night and I'd close my eyes, and all I'd see --

John: Faces.

Michael: Faces. It got so I didn't want to go to -- I didn't want to go to sleep at night, man. I was afraid to close my eyes.

John: I know the feeling.

Michael: Then I just -- I began to picture my family when I laid down at night.

John: You're a lucky guy.

Michael: Hey, come on, man. You got family. We're your family. All right, I know it's not the same. I think it's really good that you're seeing Mary.

John: Well, I just don't want to end up like Chris -- trapped in yesterday.

Michael: John, having somebody to love just makes you look forward to the future.

John: Yeah, I know.

Michael: You know? Sharlene? Huh? Come on. Ha-ha-ha!

John: How'd you figure that out? Huh?

Michael: I knew it. I got eyes, man, come on. And Jason said something --

John: Yeah, well, I can imagine what Jason must've said.

Michael: I hope you're not looking for his blessing.

John: No, I'd only worry if I had it.

Michael: Well, Sharlene is terrific. I think you and she would make a terrific pair. She'd be good for you.

John: Yeah. I just don't want to use someone to fix something in me.

Michael: Well, that's good because we both know that wouldn't work.

John: No. Well, I just have a few things that I have to work out first. That's why I have to see Mary.

Michael: Hey, come on, man. Don't be so down on yourself.

John: I'm not, I'm not. At least I'm not trying to be, but I've got to see Mary.

Michael: Tell you what you do -- when you go see Mary, I want you to tell her that her main job is to convince you that you're a really great guy.

John: No, that's got to cost extra, Mike.

Michael: Well, it might cost extra, but I guarantee you it'll be the best money you ever spent.

John: Thanks.

Josie: Mama, it's -- it's your money.

Sharlene: And I want you to have it. I want you to go out and buy a beautiful dress.

Josie: No, no!

Sharlene: Josie, I want you to look pretty for Matthew.

Josie: But, Mama, this is your first big evening with John.

Sharlene: And my green dress -- it is perfectly fine.

Josie: Green? You can't wear green. Everybody has to wear white.

Sharlene: Who says?

Josie: Mama, please.

Sharlene: I don't need a new dress.

Josie: If you don't take this money and go out and buy yourself a new dress, I won't go.

Sharlene: Josie --

Josie: I wonít.

Sharlene: All right, then I'm not going to go, either.

Josie: Mama.

Sharlene: Uh-uh, that's it, that's it. Uh-uh.

Josie: I have a white dress.

Sharlene: It's 2 years old.

Josie: It fits fine. I've only worn it a couple of times.

Sharlene: That is not the point, Jos.

Josie: Mama, I love that dress.

Sharlene: Josie, you have always complained about the ruffles around the neck.

Josie: Oh, ruffles -- I forgot about the ruffles.

Sharlene: Now, come on, take the money.

Josie: Could you take the ruffles off?

Sharlene: Well, yes, I could take them --

Josie: Mama, if you could fix it, I know it would be perfect.

Sharlene: Perfect? Jos --

Josie: It would be perfect. Where's your sewing box?

Sharlene: My -- it's in the kitchen.

Josie: Well, could we get started on it right away?

Sharlene: Well, sure, hon -- yes, we could get -- Josie, now, wait a second. If this is what you want --

Josie: Mama, I know whatever you do to it, it'll be beautiful.

Sharlene: You bet it will be. Are you absolutely sure? Now, Jos --

Josie: I'm positive.

Sharlene: Oh -- oh, all right. I'll see -- now, I wonder if I have any white thread. Josie, thank you. We'll show those high-society types, won't we, Jos?

Josie: You betcha.

Ken: Well, so much for the season of joy and good cheer. I'm ruined.

Josie: Couldn't find anyone?

Ken: No. Whatever happened to a time when $100 meant something to a poor, starving college student?

Josie: The job pays $100?

Ken: Yeah, plus tips.

Josie: Tips? You didn't -- you didn't mention tips before.

Ken: Oh, didn't I?

Josie: No.

Ken: Oh, yeah, big tips. I mean, this is a rich fraternity. These guys got bucks.

Josie: I'll do it.

Ken: Say that again?

Josie: I'll do it.

Ken: Oh, thank you! Thank you!

Josie: Kenny, stop it before I change my mind!

Ken: Anything you say. Your wish is my command.

Josie: Well, then, just stop falling all over me.

Ken: You've saved my life.

Josie: Would you stop making a big deal of this, please?

Ken: Yeah, whatever you say.

Josie: And don't tell Matthew, whatever you do. Don't tell him.

Ken: Look, I won't, ok? I promise I am sworn to secrecy. You will not regret this, Josie. You wonít.

Singer: This Christmas, listen, baby, please come home

Evan: You have to be very upbeat on your videos.

Amanda: What makes you think that I won't be?

Evan: Well, you have to be friendly and warm.

Amanda: This is video match, not adopt-a-cat.

Evan: And a dog would have a lot less bite?

Amanda: Fine. Is this warm and friendly enough for you?

Evan: Listen, are you sure that you want to do this today?

Amanda: Yes. I told Iris that I would get this done for the next "Brava" issue. When I say I'm going to do something, I do it.

Evan: Go get 'em.

Amanda: Have you ever done anything like this?

Evan: Never needed it.

Amanda: You know, I was thinking -- if I make one of these tapes for Auntie Rose and she circulates it --

Evan: Yes, you could end up going out with a total stranger.

Amanda: I couldn't blow my cover.

Evan: Well, it could be a little risky, but I don't think it --

[Door opens]

Auntie Rose: Well, I see you changed your mind.

Amanda: Oh, hello. Yes, I did.

Auntie Rose: And is your handsome brother going to make a videotape, too, hmm?

Amanda: My brother? My brother.

Evan: Yes, I'm just here giving my sister some moral support.

Auntie Rose: You're not going to make one?

Evan: No.

Auntie Rose: Oh, pity. The girls would be wearing the tape out over you.

Evan: Really?

Amanda: Can we just get started, please?

Auntie Rose: Oh, I'm afraid the screen room's in use right now.

Amanda: Oh. I was kind of in a hurry.

Auntie Rose: Oh, gosh, everybody's in a hurry today.

Evan: Well, you know my sister -- she's not getting younger. Sorry.

Lisa: Well, it took some doing, but --

Auntie Rose: Well, did you find yourself a prince charming to take to the ball?

Singer: I remember you well

Auntie Rose: Do you-all know each other?

Evan: On second thought --

Amanda: Well, uh --

Evan: I think that I would like to know more about your video service.

Auntie Rose: Well, you just said you weren't going to make a tape.

Evan: I did, but I think that maybe the right woman could convince me.

Auntie Rose: Oh. Well, why don't you just follow me into the screening room, then? You girls going to be all right?

Lisa and Amanda: Fine.

Amanda: This isn't what it looks like.

Lisa: I didn't say anything.

Amanda: I'm -- I'm doing an article for "Brava" on video dating.

Lisa: Sounds interesting.

Amanda: It's still a secret as of yet, so --

Lisa: I won't tell anybody.

Amanda: Thanks. Neither will I.

Lisa: I'm not embarrassed to be using the service.

Amanda: I'm sorry about what happened with you and Jamie.

Lisa: No, you arenít.

Amanda: I know how much Jamie cared for you.

Lisa: But Vicky is your friend and you wanted them together.

Amanda: This is kind of an awkward situation. I have to tell you, though, that I really admire how you handled it. I don't think I would've been as understanding.

Lisa: I loved Jamie, and I wanted him to be happy.

Amanda: I'm sorry things didn't work out.

Lisa: Forget it, forget it. Hey, now I have video match.

Amanda: How are they?

Lisa: Diverse.

Amanda: That bad, huh?

Lisa: Well, I'll let you judge.

Amanda: Well, I -- I guess I'd better get started. You won't say anything?

Lisa: It's a secret.

Amanda: Thanks.

Lisa: Good luck with everything.

Amanda: You, too.

Singer: I've been an angel all year Santa baby and hurry down the chimney tonight

Rachel: Sam.

Sam: Oh, man. I knew Ada would call you.

Rachel: She didnít.

Sam: There's no use following me around.

Rachel: I'm not.

Sam: You said everything you had to say last night.

Rachel: I didn't know you'd moved back in.

Sam: I havenít.

Rachel: Sam --

Sam: Look, there's nothing to discuss.

Rachel: Fine.

Sam: You've meddled enough already.

Rachel: Look, I didn't come over here to see you. I came over because I thought Mom was here and the baby.

Sam: Alli's in the crib and Ada went to do some errands.

Rachel: Look, I know you're angry with me, but don't take it out on the baby and Amanda.

Sam: Alli's about the only one I'm not mad at right now.

Rachel: And Amanda?

Sam: My marriage is my own business, as is my career.

Rachel: Sam, look, I made a mistake and I'm paying for it. I may have lost my daughter. You be careful that doesn't happen to you. Tell Mom I'll be back later.

Lisa: Oh.

Lisa: Hello. I'd like to speak to Russ Collier. Hi. You don't know me. My name is Lisa Grady. I got your name from video match. Right. Um -- yeah, it is kind of awkward. Gee, I'm glad to hear you feel that way, too. Well, I was wondering if you want to go out with me. I was thinking of the snowflake ball. It's this -- oh, you've heard of it? Well, I know it's kind of much for a first date, but -- oh, you would? Well, great. Yeah, it'd be nice if we could meet first. Lunch? Sure. Where should we meet? The executive lounge at "Brava"? Do you work there? Oh. Oh, nothing, uh -- well, when? Ok, great. I'll see you there. Bye. "Brava"?

Sharlene: We're going to change the inside, too. We're making changes, so --

Iris: Well, it's very charming.

Sharlene: Good.

Iris: Don't you think so, Donna?

Donna: Yes, yes. It's -- it's charm-- oh, no. Oh, my shoes!

Sharlene: Oh -- oh, Donna.

Donna: I had no idea we were going to go traipsing around in a potting shed.

Sharlene: You can use this.

Donna: Oh, thank you.

Iris: Donna thinks that poinsettias just spring out of the ground already wrapped in tinfoil.

Donna: Well, I don't have a green thumb like Sharlene.

Iris: No, we're very envious of your gardening abilities, Sharlene.

Sharlene: So the poinsettias that they delivered are all right for the ball?

Iris: They're lovely.

Donna: Yes, yes, they're beautiful. They're -- those poinsettias are the -- the biggest I've ever seen.

Sharlene: Well, I'm sure it's the potting soil that they use. I use a combination of mulch and --

Donna: Yeah, I really wonder what's keeping Michael.

Sharlene: Can I get you some coffee?

Iris: Thank you. That would be lovely.

Sharlene: Donna, would you like some coffee?

Donna: No, no, thank you.

Iris: Why don't you have some while you're waiting for Michael?

Donna: Well, uh -- fine. Thank you.

Sharlene: Sure. Just make yourselves comfortable.

Donna: Iris, I really want to get out of here.

Iris: But it's so charming.

Donna: Yeah, I know, it is. It's charming. Well, why is it that farm always smell -- you know, they smell --

Iris: Like a farm? Because it is a farm, Donna.

Donna: Well, I'm going to have to have this whole outfit dry-cleaned.

Iris: Well, the flowers are lovely. Everything's going very smoothly.

Donna: You know, that is the truth, and I think we stand to make a fortune for the hospital.

Iris: Talking of hospitals, how's your daughter?

Donna: Marley?

Iris: Mm-hmm.

Donna: Oh. She's fine. Thank you for asking. Actually, she's going to have to have another operation.

Iris: I'm sorry.

Donna: No. No, it's all right. She wants to do everything she can to have a child.

Iris: Yes, not realizing what a worry they are.

Donna: And a joy?

Iris: Mm-hmm. That's true. Did I tell you that my son Dennis might be coming to the ball?

Donna: No. Really? Oh, how wonderful.

Sharlene: Look who I found in the kitchen.

John: Glad to help.

Donna: Ah!

Michael: Hey.

Donna: Michael.

Michael: Hi. How are you?

Donna: Hi.

Michael: Good to see you.

Sharlene: Coffee?

Michael: Yes, I did.

John: Hello, Mrs. Wheeler. How are you?

Iris: Oh, I'm fine, thank you. John, isn't it?

John: That's right, John.

Sharlene: So there's carrot cake for everyone. Please help yourselves.

Donna: Oh, thank you.

John: Sharlene, do you know that the step out here on the front porch is real loose?

Sharlene: Thank you. I'll fix it.

John: Now, I'd be more than happy to fix it for you. As a matter of fact, if you want to come out there, I'll take a look at it with you. If you got a minute, I'd be more than happy to.

Sharlene: Yeah, all right. Iris?

Iris: Yes?

Sharlene: Is there anything else?

Iris: Oh, no. You've done a splendid job, thank you.

Sharlene: Ok. Donna, help yourself.

Donna: Thank you, we will.

John: That darn old thing, it's just been creaking --

[Michael laughs]

Donna: Hmm.

Iris: Michael, I haven't had a chance to get to know your brother yet, although he was very influential in my decision to use Frame Construction for the spa job.

Donna: Well, I think you'll have an opportunity to get to know John. You see, he's taking Sharlene to the ball.

Iris: Oh, lucky Sharlene.

Donna: Speaking of which, Michael and I were asking about you today.

Iris: Oh, really?

Donna: Mm-hmm. We were wondering who you're going to invite.

Iris: Well, I haven't decided yet.

Donna: Oh. Well, surely you have plenty of handsome men to choose from here in Bay City.

Iris: Well, the two most handsome men are already taken -- the dashing Hudson brothers.

Donna: Oh. Well --

Iris: Look, I really must be going.

Donna: Oh, no, no, no, no. Come on. Aren't you going to give me at least a little hint?

Iris: Well, there is someone I'd like to invite, but I think that would raise too many eyebrows.

Donna: Oh, really?

Iris: But I won't worry about that. I'm used to it. Goodbye.

Michael: Goodbye.

Auntie Rose: Now, let's just try that last part one more time, ok? You know, the ending where you talked about men, the guy being understanding? I liked that part, ok? Now, you're doing just great. Lick your lips. Ok. You ready?

Amanda: Mm-hmm.

Auntie Rose: Look pretty. Ok, roll it.

Amanda: Ahem. A man should be secure with himself and with what he does. Uh -- I mean, I'm a pretty open person, so I want somebody that's open. I hate the silent treatment. Uh -- I mean, if I do something that he doesn't understand, I want a guy to ask me about it or else understand me the same way I'd understand him. That's -- that's all.

Auntie Rose: Cut.

[Auntie Rose laughs]

Amanda: Well, how'd I do?

Auntie Rose: You were fabulous! Honey, they are going to be beating down your door. Oh, I am going to be putting this one on the shelf, but it will not be there for very long, believe me.

Amanda: Oh.

Auntie Rose: Come on.

Evan: That wasn't all bad, was it?

Amanda: Was easier than I thought. So how was I?

Evan: You were great. A little revealing.

Amanda: How?

Evan: The man you were describing -- well, he's --

Amanda: What?

Evan: He's the exact opposite of Sam.

Amanda: Well, I meant it to be that way. I mean, this is for the story. It's fiction.

Evan: Oh.

Amanda: I've got a lot of work to do.

Ken: We're going to be late.

Josie: Well, I mean, I really should do something with my hair, don't you think?

Ken: Oh, look, nobody is going to be looking at your hair.

Josie: Kenny, if that costume is like the last costume --

Ken: Everybody loved you the last time, remember?

Josie: "Christmas carol" -- that's like Mrs. Claus or something like that?

Ken: Uh, something. It's more like an elf.

Josie: What?

Ken: It's just a small change.

Josie: How small? Kenny, tell me about the costume.

Matt: Hey. What costume?

Josie: Matthew. I thought you had to study.

Matt: Yeah, I do. Listen, do you want to go to the library with me?

Ken: Guys, I got to take off because I don't want to be late.

Matt: For what?

Ken: A Christmas party.

Matt: Playing Santa, right?

Ken: What?

Matt: The costume?

Josie: Uh, yeah! Yeah, that's what he's doing. You'd better get going.

Ken: Yeah.

Matt: I'll tell you one thing -- if he is going to play Santa, he's going to need a lot of padding.

Josie: He sure is.

Matt: Listen, so you want to go?

Josie: Go where?

Matt: The library.

Josie: Oh, oh, well, I --

Matt: Well, yeah, I know it's going to be a little boring, but we can go out afterwards and have dinner.

Josie: I can't, I canít. I -- I have other plans.

Matt: More important than me?

Josie: Well, they -- they have to do with you.

Matt: All right. Tell me more.

Josie: I canít.

Matt: Josie, are you hiding something from me?

Josie: Yeah. But it -- it has to do with Christmas.

Matt: My present.

Josie: Right, right.

Matt: Ok, ok, ok. I don't want to hear anything more about it, won't ask any more questions, but if in case you were wondering, the red Ferrari would be perfect.

Josie: I'll keep that in mind.

Matt: Ok. You know, this is going to be our first Christmas together.

Josie: I know, and I want everything to be special.

Matt: And it will be. It will be as long as we're together.

Josie: Library?

Matt: Right, the library. Ok. Have fun tonight.

Josie: What?

Matt: With your surprise.

Josie: Oh -- right, right, right.

Matt: Your secret. Hey, oh -- Alfa Romeo. I could settle for that.

Josie: Would you get out of here!

Matt: I'm going, I'm going, I'm going.

Josie: I'll be thinking about you tonight.

Matt: You'd better be. Bye-bye.

[Car drives off]

Josie: Oh. Oh.

Evan: She was not even thinking about Sam when she made that videotape.

Iris: Well, I'm glad you went with her.

Evan: So this little spat with hubby isn't exactly hurting things?

Iris: So she's going to need a nice, broad shoulder to lean on.

Evan: Maybe.

Iris: And, of course, you wouldn't object to that, would you?

Evan: Now, would I take advantage of a woman when she's so vulnerable?

Iris: Depending what was in it for you.

Evan: Is that what you think of me?

Iris: That's a compliment, darling. And here's another one -- how would you like to escort me to the snowflake ball?

Evan: Well, I would be delighted to escort you --

Iris: Hmm. Thank you, sir.

Evan: Before, during, and after the ball.

Sam: Yeah! Let's see if you can stand. Ooh, you're getting good at that. You got the cutest nose -- do you know that? Yeah! Yes, you do. You have the cutest little nose. Yeah. I love you so much. You know, you're the most important thing in my life right now, don't you? You know that? Yeah. I'm going to tell you something, ok, and I want you to believe me, ok? I'm never going to leave you. I'm never going to leave you. No. I'm going to make you proud of me. Yeah. You do have the most beautiful eyes, you know that, little girl? You've got your Mama's eyes -- so beautiful.


[Alli coughs]

Sam: Wonder what you got from me. Hope it's not my stubborn streak. Your mom's got enough to deal with.

Amanda: I don't mind.

Sam: How long have you been standing there?

Amanda: Long enough. Sam --

Sam: Look, I came by to pick up a few things. Ada's running some errands so that --

Amanda: We miss you.

Sam: Yeah, well, I miss you, too.

Amanda: So come back.

Sam: I canít. Not yet.

Amanda: When?

Sam: Amanda, you lied to me.

Amanda: I'm sorry.

Sam: I know that. Oh, damn it, honey, we're supposed to be in this together. You know that.

Amanda: What can I do?

Sam: Give me some time.

Amanda: How much?

Sam: I got to get over this, and I also have to learn how to trust you again.

Amanda: You have to learn how to trust yourself, too.

Sam: I changed her.

Amanda: Thanks. You going to say goodbye to your daughter?

Sam: I love you.
