C.J.: Well, there you go. It's all yours, lock, stock, and espresso machines.
Stephanie: Thank you.
C.J.: No, Stephanie, thank you. I-I thought it was gonna take me months to unload this place and sell off the equipment. Talk about perfect timing. (Sighs)
Stephanie: (Chuckles) Sometimes, you end up right where you belong.
C.J.: I'll agree. Uh, well, I guess I better hit the road.
Stephanie: When you see your mom or talk to her, please give her my love.
C.J.: I'll do that. It's good to see you, Mr. Forrester. Nice to meet you.
Dayzee: You, too.
C.J.: Good luck to both of you ladies. I hope this works out brilliantly for both of you.
Stephanie: It will. We have a plan.
Stephanie: Don't we?
Stephanie: Good. We have a plan.
Brooke: The holidays are such a special time-- a time to give thanks, a time to reflect. I have so much gratitude for everything I have-- my husband, my kids, my family. We're all happy and healthy. And Stephanie, she's doing great with her cancer treatment.
Katie: Yeah, we have a lot to be grateful for. I've never been happier than I am with Bill.
Brooke: I still just feel bad for the people who are less fortunate, the people that Stephanie and I met. (Sighs) I don't think anybody should be homeless on the holidays.
Katie: Are you still thinking about your friend Anthony?
Brooke: Mm-hmm. He was my angel. I asked so many people for help that day, and he was the only one who did. Even with his bad foot and lugging everything around on his shoulders, I mean, he could have ignored me just like everybody else did, but he didn't. He helped me, and he helped me find Stephanie, and he was watching out for me. Now I wonder who's watching out for him.
Katie: Well, if Anthony's been living on the streets, maybe he can take care of himself.
Brooke: The people down there do take care of each other.
Katie: That's not the impression you get on the news.
Brooke: Well, at night, it's a different story when all the drug dealers come out. It becomes like a war zone. But other than that, I mean, the people that Stephanie and I met, they formed this community, and I'm not sure that Anthony's a part of that. I know that he is friends with Dayzee, but I-I don't-- I'm just not sure.
Katie: Have you talked to Dayzee to see if she's heard from him?
Brooke: Actually, I talked to Stephanie, and she's gonna talk to Dayzee and find out, but you know what? I haven't heard from her yet, so that might not be a very good sign.
Stephanie: Well, all I can say is thank goodness C.J. left us a list of all the people to order from. We'll just figure it out...
Stephanie: As we go along, okay?
(Cell phone rings)
Stephanie: Oh, excuse me a second. Hi.
Brooke: Stephanie, hi. It's me. So did you ask Dayzee yet about Anthony?
Stephanie: Uh, y-- uh, you know, I did. As a matter of fact, she's sitting right here. We're having coffee. Would you-- would you like to speak to her? Okay. It's Brooke. Remember I asked you about Anthony?
Stephanie: She wants to know if you've, you know...
Dayzee: Hi, Brooke.
Brooke: Hi, Dayzee. Did Stephanie tell you how worried I am about Anthony?
Dayzee: Yeah. Yeah, she did.
Brooke: Do you think he's okay?
Dayzee: You know, I actually haven't seen him for a while either.
Brooke: Well, is that normal? Does he always disappear like that?
Dayzee: No, it's not.
Brooke: (Sighs) Do you have any idea where he might be? I would just really like to find him.
Dayzee: You know, I've actually been looking for him every day, a-and it's not like him. It's almost like he doesn't want to be found.
Brooke: Hmm. Well, I'm not gonna give up. I really want to be there to help him.
Dayzee: Great. You know what? I'll actually help you look right after I'm done here with Stephanie.
Brooke: Okay. (Sighs) Wish me luck.
Dayzee: Okay, yeah. For sure.
Katie: Uh, where are you going?
Brooke: I'm going downtown. Dayzee's worried, too. I'm gonna go try to find him. He's gotta be down there somewhere.
Katie: Well, I'm not gonna let you go down there alone.
Brooke: I'll be fine. I can do this by myself. I've been there before.
Katie: Yeah, the last time, you hand Anthony with you by your side looking out for you. Skid row isn't safe, Brooke.
Brooke: (Sighs) Okay, yes, there are drug dealers, and there's drug addicts, and there's people that are mentally ill. But there's other people, too-- people with families, people who've been laid off of their jobs, good people. Just people who happened to fall through the cracks because of the system. And Anthony, oh, my gosh, he's got such a big, huge heart. I don't want him to fall through the cracks. I want to be there for him and help him, especially now. It's Christmas.
Katie: Everything you've been through with Stephanie and meeting all these people who've lost so much, it's really made you think, hasn't it?
Brooke: Mm-hmm. It makes you think about what you have, and it also makes you think about your losses. You know, Mom and Storm. We've had all our ups and downs and scandals and everything, but we always have somebody to lean on. We always have food on the table. We have a roof above our heads, a nice warm bed to climb into. I mean, just think if you were wondering where your next meal was gonna come from. Anthony once told me that he would give his good kidney just to be able to have a chair.
Katie: God, what a hard life.
Brooke: Yes. (Sighs) But still, he--he's such a kind, loving spirit. He's truly remarkable. And not many people have cared about him.
Katie: Well, I can tell that you do.
Brooke: I do. (Chuckles) And I want to be there for him, and I want to help him, whatever it takes.
Katie: Okay, we both will. And we can look in the closet and see if there are any extra coats or blankets, and we can take 'em to the mission. How's that?
Brooke: (Laughs) That's great.
Brooke: That's wonderful.
Thomas: All right, Grandma, that's all of it.
Stephanie: Oh, thanks, Honey.
Pam: Uh, Steph, you sure this is where you want it? 'Cause the movers are still here. We could have 'em move it anywhere.
Stephanie: No, no, lea-- leave it there just for the moment. It's fine.
Dayzee: God, it's huge.
Pam: I can't believe that you brought your own tree. And now your house isn't gonna be a little empty?
Stephanie: Oh, it's all right. It's just myself and Eric. (Chuckles) Besides, Tom, we want a lot of Christmas spirit here, right? So put up every single ornament and every tree light, and when you think it's overdone, add some more.
Thomas: Really, Grandma?
Pam: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Aren't you the person who always says to me, "Pammy, less is more"?
Stephanie: Well, I've changed. I mean, come on. Aren't we decorating, Dayzee, for people who probably haven't celebrated the holidays for a long time? I think its okay if we go o-- a little overboard, isn't it? I called Kevin. I spoke to him and he said that, well, a number of the people that he talked to, well, they're really very excited to participate in all of this.
Dayzee: Are you kidding? Of course. I mean, you're giving people the opportunity to rise up out of their circumstances and have a job with wages, and to have a place to come and get a cup of coffee like a regular person. Stephanie, you're gonna have a line all the way around the block. (Laughs)
Stephanie: We are going to have a line all the way around the block. Uh-oh.
Dayzee: There he is.
Marcus: All right, well, I got the new sign up out front.
Stephanie: How's it look?
Marcus: Well, it looks marvelous, of course. It's just what the neighborhood needed.
Katie: Does anything look familiar?
Brooke: I don't know. Not really. Uh, excuse me. Do you know an Anthony? He carries a guitar.
Katie: Should we just ask everyone we see?
Brooke: Well, if that's what it takes. I know he'd be around here somewhere. He can't go far. He has a limp. And he'd want all this foot traffic to be able to cell his CDs.
Katie: Brooke, you're talking like you know this guy. You only met him once.
Brooke: It's kind of hard to explain. I mean, you know what it's like. You go to a party, or you're out and about and you meet somebody and you have a conversation. By the time you get home, you don't even remember what you talked about or what their name was. But it's kind of different with Anthony. He really made an impact. It felt really significant. I don't know how we're going to find him.
Katie: Brooke, um, maybe we should go back.
Brooke: No, no, not yet.
Brooke: Where do you sleep? Is it healthy? Is it safe?
Anthony: Safety is in not having anything that anybody wants. Bet you got all sorts of alarm systems everywhere you go.
Brooke: I suppose I do.
Anthony: I don't like owning stuff. (Sighs) I tried it once, and it didn't agree with me.
Brooke: Well, I never thought of being homeless that way.
Anthony: L.A. is my home. You know, if I'm gonna be labeled for what I don't have, then call me "Chore-less." Call me "Bill-less," "Tax-less," "Ulcer-less," "Paycheck-less," "Bathroom-less," "Toothbrush-less," "Chair-less." You know, there are days that I would give my good kidney just for a chair. It's a hustle the whole livelong day bein' me.
Brooke: What keeps you going?
Anthony: (Sighs) You'd be surprised. I bet I know more people who would give me their last dime than you do. How much do you trust me and how much do I trust you?
Anthony: I want you to put this on and hide that purse. You're going to need it where we're going.
Brooke: These people.
Katie: Do you see him?
Brooke: In the mission.
Brook: Paul? Hi! I remember you. I brought blankets to the mission. I'm Brooke.
Brooke: Good to see you. I'm looking for my friend Anthony. He carries a guitar and he has a limp.
Paul: Yeah. Oh, yeah.
Brooke: You've seen him? A-around here or at the mission?
Paul: Been a while.
Brooke: Oh. So you haven't seen him today or recently?
Brooke: Okay. Well, if you do see him, can you just tell him I was looking for him? I left my number for him at the mission. I just want to make sure he's okay.
Paul: If I see him, sure will.
Brooke: Oh. (Sighs) I don't know what I was thinking. It's like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Los Angeles County has the largest population of homeless people in America. You know, let's just go back to the mission and see if anybody else has seen him. Then we can leave another message.
Katie: Okay. Brooke, the mission's this way.
Brooke: Yeah, but I-I don't want to retrace our steps. I want to take a different route.
Katie: So you're not really giving up?
Brooke: After what he did for me, helping me find Stephanie, it's the least I can do for him.
Thomas: You know, Grandma, you know, you should actually think about instead of having set prices, you should have suggested prices for each item on the menu, right?
Stephanie: That's a great idea.
Stephanie: I--you know, in a way, we could do what they do in the theater. You know, suggested donations.
Stephanie: That way, people can pay what--whatever they can.
Marcus: You know, I actually heard about places like this. And they actually do quite well, you know?
Stephanie: Well, I'd be happy if we broke even. (Laughs) If we made a profit, we'll just take it and turn it right back into the company, so...
Dayzee: Sounds great. I mean, the whole point of this is to give people jobs. You can't put a price tag on pride and sense of purpose.
Stephanie: Pam, did I tell you Dayzee's gonna hire the people to work here from the mission and from skid row?
Marcus: I didn't know that.
Pam: I-I just think what you guys are doing is fantastic. But have you thought about the fact it's gonna take some time to train people?
Thomas: You definitely can't open before Christmas.
Stephanie: Yeah, I know.
Pam: Well, then what are we doing hanging all these Christmas decorations now?
Stephanie: Aha! You've hit on it. It was a secret, but it is now no longer going to be a secret. We--our family-- are going to have Christmas dinner here with Dayzee's extended family.
Dayzee: (Laughs) Everyone who walks through these doors is going to be a customer. Ain't nobody goin' hungry at Dayzee's. And if they can't pay, they're gonna get served anyway. And we'll be the ones serving them.
Stephanie: Every customer's gonna be treated with dignity and respect. You know what I was thinking, Pam? What if we-- what if we gave a free lunch every Tuesday and Thursday?
Thomas: Whoa, Grandma.
Thomas: You're not gonna make any money giving food away for free.
Stephanie: (Chuckles) I know that. Believe me. I know that. But it might make somebody's day a little brighter, right?
Stephanie: Okay. I mean, look at my day, how bright it is. I thought I didn't have anything left to give. And all those wonderful people that I met down--downtown, and Dayzee included, made me realize that we all have a lot of different gifts to share. We may live in different places and lead different lives, but, you know, as human beings, we all want the same thing. We all want the same thing for ourselves and our families. We want to feel safe. We want to feel loved. And we want to be happy. And I'm hoping that every time somebody walks through that door into Dayzee's place, they're gonna feel as though they found a little bit of heaven right in their hand.
Brooke: Excuse me. I'm looking for my friend Anthony.
Katie: (Sighs) God, Brooke, it just breaks my heart seeing all these people without a roof over their head.
Brooke: I know. It's getting worse all the time. I mean, people are losing their homes, and are just seeking refuge in the shelters. But it can happen to anybody-- educated people, families, people who've lost their jobs. They really have nowhere else to go.
Katie: But these are just tarps. It can't be enough at night.
Brooke: No, it's not.
Katie: (Sighs) Somebody's gotta do something about this.
Brooke: There are amazing, compassionate people trying to do everything they can, and the organizations that provide services for the homeless, they're completely maxed out. And whatever Stephanie and I are trying to do to help-- one small drop in the bucket. That's why we need to try to get more people involved.
Katie: But the problem is so huge.
Brooke: (Sighs) I know. I know. But sometimes, if you just reduce your focus to try to help one person or try to solve one little problem... that's why I want to find Anthony, and I want to--
Brooke: Wait, do you hear that? That sounds like Anthony. Let's go see.
Anthony: I can feel your miracle said it's on the way.
Brooke: Anthony! (Sighs)
Anthony: What are you doin' back down here? Did you lose that friend of yours again?
