( phone ringing )

HELLO?

JUST A MINUTE.

DENISE, IT'S FOR YOU.

ME?

GOOD TIMING.

STEVIE, THIS IS
MY LITTLE SISTER RUDY.

HI, RUDY.

HOW WAS YOUR FLIGHT?

WE FLEW AT 27,000 FEET.



WE EXPERIENCED SOME TURBULENCE.

IT WAS FUN.

COME MEET MY SON J.T.

HE'S VERY INTERESTED
IN AVIATION.

DAD, WE JUST GOT IN
FROM THE AIRPORT.

I WAS ABOUT TO CALL YOU.

YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO WORRY.

I WASN'T WORRIED.

YOUR MOTHER WAS WORRIED.

I JUST WANT TO KNOW
WAS ANYBODY IN TEARS?

NO, NOT RUDY.

THE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS,
OTHER PASSENGERS.

GOOD.

DID SHE BREAK ANYTHING?

AS FAR AS YOU KNOW, WE DON'T OWE
THE AIRLINES ANY MONEY.

NO.

RUDY'S FINE.

I DIDN'T REALIZE
HOW MUCH I MISSED HER

UNTIL I SAW HER LITTLE FACE
GET OFF THE PLANE.

WHAT ABOUT ME?

DO YOU MISS ME?

YES, I MISS YOU.

RUDY AND I ARE GOING
TO HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.

THANKS FOR LETTING HER COME.

IT'S NICE TO HAVE
A LITTLE SISTER AGAIN.

YOU KEEP HER.

SEND HER BACK
WHEN SHE GETS A DEGREE.

I WISH I COULD.

I LOVE YOU, TOO.

KISS MOM FOR ME.

BYE.

THAT WAS DAD, RIGHT?

HE WAS WORRIED.

OF COURSE.

DENISE, CAN YOU
GET THIS OFF OF ME?

OH, YEAH.

"ONE: DO NOT REMOVE
THIS LIST FROM CHILD."

"TWO: DO NOT HELP THIS CHILD
TO REMOVE LIST."

WHAT IS THIS?

THIS ONE'S NEW.

"NUMERO UNO: NO SACARLE
ESTA LISTA A LA NINA."

THAT WAS MOM'S IDEA.

HEY, SHE DID IT
TO ALL OF US.

HAY IS FOR HORSES,
DENISE.

WHITLEY.

WELL, THIS MUST BE
YOUR OLDER SISTER.

NO, I'M RUDY.

AH, RUDY, RUDY, RUDY.

THAT'S AN UNUSUAL NAME
FOR A CHILD.

BUT I THINK I LIKE IT.

WELL, I'M JUST GLOWING ALL OVER.

SHOWER TIME.

I LIKE YOUR FRIEND.

SHE'S NICE.

THIS IS MY ROOM.

THAT'S MY ROOMMATE.

HI, RUDY.

I'M MAGGIE.

WHAT A BIG GIRL.

I HEARD YOU FLEW HERE
ALL BY YOURSELF.

NO, THE PLANE WAS FULL.

LAMAR!

I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT MAN.

HANGING AROUND MY SISTER.

WHO'S LAMAR?

MY EX-HUSBAND, THE...

RUDY!

UM, HI.

DID YOU HAVE A NICE TRIP?

YEAH, AND IF I VISIT
100 MORE TIMES

I GET A FREE TRIP TO HAWAII.

IF YOU DO, CAN I COME?

NO, I THINK
I SHOULD TAKE DENISE.

THANKS, RUDY.

JALEESA,
WHAT'S WRONG?

MY FRIEND RAYNIECE SAW LAMAR
IN A RESTAURANT WITH YVONNE.

WHO'S YVONNE?

HER BABY SISTER.

LAMAR ALWAYS LIKED HER.

THE MAN IS LOWER
THAN POND SCUM.

WHAT'S POND SCUM?

MAYBE WE SHOULD
TALK ABOUT THIS LATER.

SORRY.

LET'S GO TO
"THE PIT."

GOOD IDEA.

I NEED TO EAT SOMETHING WITH
NO NUTRITIONAL VALUE WHATSOEVER.

BYE.

BYE.

BYE-BYE.

HEY, COME HERE, YOU.

I MISSED YOU.

GIVE ME A HUG.

TELL ME EVERYTHING.

HOW'S SCHOOL?

FINE.

WHAT'S "THE PIT"?

THIS PLACE WE GO TO
TO DANCE, EAT, HAVE FUN.

CAN WE GO THERE NOW?

OKAY.

COME ON.

( jukebox music )

HEY, THOSE ARE MY FRIES.

I DON'T SEE
YOUR NAME ON THEM.

THAT'S MY PICKLE.

I DON'T SEE
YOUR NAME ON IT.

THERE YOU GO.

THANK YOU.

DID YOU MAKE CONTACT
WITH MR. "X"?

NO ANSWER.

HOW ABOUT MISS "Y"?

NO ANSWER.

THEY'RE PROBABLY
AT "NEPTUNE'S GROTTO"

TYING ON EACH OTHER'S
LOBSTER BIBS.

HOW DO
YOU KNOW

THEY'RE EATING LOBSTER?

HE'S ALWAYS
A BIG SPENDER, BEFORE.

BEFORE WHAT?

UH, EAT YOUR
CHEESEBURGER.

LAMAR CAN BE SUCH A...

C.A.S.A.N.O.V.A.

WHAT?

P.L.A.Y.B.O.Y.

PLAYBOY?

EAT YOUR FRIES.

LOOK, THERE'S DWAYNE.

DWAYNE, OVER HERE.

HOW DID YOU KNOW
THAT WAS HIM?

YOU MUST BE
A TRANSFER STUDENT, RIGHT?

THIS IS RUDY.

TELL ME, RUDY,
ARE YOU MARRIED?

NO.

NO?

RUDY, THIS IS
A DESPERATE MAN.

I MAY BE DESPERATE NOW,
BUT NOT AFTER TOMORROW.

MY WOMEN'S STUDIES COURSE
IS HAVING A TEA.

ME, PROFESSOR LOOMIS
AND 30 LIBERATED WOMEN.

TWENTY-NINE.

RUDY AND I HAVE PLANS.

SORRY, DWAYNE.

I'M HEARTBROKEN.

YOU CAN MAKE UP FOR IT
IF YOU DANCE WITH ME.

OKAY.

COME HERE,
RUDY.

COME ON, YOU GUYS.

WAIT A MINUTE.

UH-OH.

COME ON.

YEAH.

MOVE OVER.

I AM OVER.

YOU TWO COMFORTABLE?

NO.

DENISE, YOU'VE GROWN.

WELL, RUDY...

YOU GUYS,
THIS ISN'T WORKING.

YOU KNOW, SOMEONE DOWN THE HALL
HAS AN EXTRA BED.

YOU MEAN WHITLEY?

OH, GREAT.

A NIGHT OF SOUTHERN DISCOMFORT.

SO, ONE OF YOU WANTS TO SLEEP
IN MY GUEST BED.

IT'S JUST
FOR ONE NIGHT.

OKAY.

LET'S SEE.

EENY, MEENY, MINEY...

NO.

I'LL TAKE EENY.

MY NAME IS RUDY.

IF YOU'RE CONSIDERING
BEING A GUEST OF MINE

YOU MIGHT WANT

MORE APPROPRIATE
SLEEPING ATTIRE.

OKAY.

OKAY?

WE'LL BE RIGHT
ACROSS THE HALL.

DON'T WORRY.

SHE'S IN GOOD,
IMPECCABLY MANICURED HANDS.

THAT IS THE VERY SAME CROWN
I WORE

WHEN THEY NAMED ME
"MISS MAGNOLIA."

DID YOU CRY?

WELL, I DID GET MISTY.

IT'S EASIER ON THE MASCARA.

YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL SMILE.

WELL, AREN'T YOU
THE LITTLE SUGARPLUM FAIRY?

I'LL LET YOU IN

ON A LITTLE SECRET.

IF YOU DAB A LITTLE VASELINE
ACROSS YOUR FRONT TEETH

YOU CAN SMILE LIKE THAT ALL DAY
WITHOUT YOUR LIPS DRYING OUT.

JUST A LITTLE DAB.

YOU SURE DO HAVE
A LOT OF LIPSTICKS.

THIS SHADE WOULD BE
PERFECT FOR YOU.

MY MOM SAID

I CAN'T WEAR MAKEUP
UNTIL I'M A TEENAGER.

ARE YOUR PARENTS QUAKERS
OR SOMETHING?

I DON'T KNOW.

ARE YOU ALLOWED
TO DANCE AND WEAR RED?

YES.

BUT MY MOTHER NEVER SAID
ANYTHING ABOUT PERFUME.

WELL, TRY THEM ALL IF YOU LIKE.

HAVE A BALL.

OOH, THIS SMELLS GOOD.

THAT'S THE ONE
WITH MUSK IN IT.

PERSONALLY, I FEEL THAT
WEARING MUSK BEFORE NIGHTFALL

IS LIKE WEARING WHITE SHOES
AFTER LABOR DAY.

THAT'S A PRETTY DRESS.

THANK YOU.

I'M WEARING IT TO
THE WOMEN'S STUDIES TEA.

WHICH DO YOU PREFER,
THE SCARF OR THE NECKLACE?

BOTH.

REALLY?

YOU DON'T THINK THAT'S TOO MUCH?

NO.

YOU'RE RIGHT.

RUDY

DO YOU HAVE
A MIDDLE NAME?

YES, LILLIAN.

THAT'S A NAME BEFITTING
A LITTLE PRINCESS LIKE YOURSELF.

I THINK THAT'S WHAT
I'LL CALL YOU, LILLIAN.

( Southern accent: )
MORNIN', EVERYBODY.

RISE AND SHINE.

OH, MY GOD.

I HAD A DIVINE TIME.

WHAT DID YOU AND WHITLEY DO?

WE SHARED BEAUTY SECRETS,
AND THEY WORK.

WHAT ARE WHITLEY'S
BEAUTY SECRETS?

SHE TOLD ME NOT TO TELL YOU.

WHAT ARE THE HUXTABLE SISTERS
GOING TO DO TODAY?

WE'RE GOING TO THE DOLL MUSEUM.

OH, I KNOW.

THE HAPPY PILGRIM.

THEY HAVE PUMPKIN ICE CREAM
SHAPED LIKE TURKEYS

AND TOMAHAWK SPOONS
TO EAT IT WITH.

BUT MY SISTER
REALLY LOVES DOLLS.

THE HAPPY PILGRIM
IS MORE FUN.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO, RUDY?

SHOP.

SHOP?

I WANT TO GO TO THE TEA.

I DON'T HAVE A THING TO WEAR.

THE WOMEN'S STUDIES TEA?

YOU REALLY WANT TO GO?

WHITLEY'S GOING.

OH, I SEE.

WELL, RUDY

IF YOU REALLY WANT TO GO,
I GUESS WE'LL GO.

GOOD.

DWAYNE WILL BE THERE.

ALL MY FRIENDS ARE GOING.

YVONNE'S PHONE
IS STILL OFF THE HOOK.

THAT CAN MEAN ONLY ONE THING:

THAT LAMAR
IS STILL THERE.

MAYBE YOUR SISTER JUST
WANTED TO SLEEP LATE.

LAMAR NEVER FED A WOMAN LOBSTER
AND LET HER GO HOME ALONE.

MEN WILL TRY,
AND WOMEN MUST DENY.

HEY!

HAY IS FOR HORSES, DENISE.

THIS IS MY FIRST REAL TEA.

( British accent: )
SHOULD I TALK ABOUT THE WEATHER?

CAPITAL IDEA.

IT'S BEEN MILD
FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR.

OH, INDEED.

HELLO, DENISE.

AREN'T YOU A VISION?

TWIRL AROUND,
LILLIAN.

LILLIAN?

SHE CALLS ME LILLIAN.

IT'S MORE FEMININE THAN RUDY.

ONE LUMP OR FOUR?

NONE FOR ME,
THANK YOU.

SHALL WE BE SEATED?

WE SHALL.

EXCUSE ME.

SO, LADY RUDY,
EXPECTING RAIN TOMORROW?

WHAT DO YOU THINK, WHITLEY?

I DON'T KNOW.

I'M NO WEATHER VANE.

OH, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

THANKS.

I JUST ADORE
WATERCRESS SANDWICHES.

SO DO I.

WHAT ARE THEY?

IT'S LIKE A B.L.T.
WITHOUT THE "B" AND THE "T."

STOP THAT.

RUDY, STOP.

THE SIGN OF
A TRUE LADY

IS THAT THE BACKS OF HER SHOES
ARE NEVER SCUFFED.

ANYONE FOR ANOTHER WALNUT BAR?

NOT I.

ONE'S MY LIMIT.

NOT I, EITHER.

EXCUSE ME.

DID YOU CATCH FARRAH FAWCETT
IN THE BURNING BED?

THAT WAS ONE LIBERATED BABE.

WHEN SHE LIT THE MATCH,
I SAID, "BURN, BABY, BURN!"

IT'S COLD.

DENISE

I KNEW YOUR CONSCIENCE
WOULD TRIUMPH--

IF NOT FOR ME,
THEN FOR WOMEN'S STUDIES.

FRANKLY, I DON'T KNOW
WHAT I'M DOING HERE.

YOU ALL RIGHT?

NO.

UH-OH, COME ON,
TALK TO ME.

TELL DWAYNE.

WELL...

YESTERDAY,
RUDY GETS OFF THE PLANE

A PERFECTLY NORMAL CHILD.

ONE NIGHT WITH WHITLEY,
AND SHE'S TURNED INTO LILLIAN.

OH, DENISE, PLEASE.

WHITLEY HAS GOT NOTHING ON YOU.

I MEAN, SHE'S FINE,
BUT SHE'S GOT NOTHING ON YOU.

JUST MY SISTER.

THEY WERE LIKE
TWO SUGAR PEAS IN A POD.

IT WAS DISGUSTING.

MY PARENTS WILL HAVE
TO HIRE A DE-PROGRAMMER.

THAT'S SISTERS.

I WOULD HAVE
TAKEN HER ANYWHERE.

I WOULD HAVE EATEN
TURKEY ICE CREAM WITH A HATCHET.

PUMPKIN, WITH A TOMAHAWK.

YVONNE IS A DEAD WOMAN.

WHO LET HER GET SNOT
ALL OVER MY SLEEVE

WHEN BAMBI'S MOTHER DIED?

THAT WAS SO SAD.

I'LL TELL YOU
WHO'S GOING
TO BE SAD.

YVONNE IS GOING
TO BE SAD.

WHEN I GET
AHOLD OF HER...

THIS IS JUST LIKE LITTLE WOMEN.

YOU TWO LOVE YOUR SISTERS

JUST LIKE JO
WENT ON LOVING AMY

EVEN AFTER
SHE DESTROYED HER STORIES

STOLE HER TRIP TO EUROPE
AND MARRIED HER RICH BOYFRIEND.

I'M GOING TO CALL YVONNE.

I'M GOING OVER TO WHITLEY'S
RIGHT NOW.

I'M GOING TO TAKE LILLIAN,
AND I AM GOING TO...

I'M GOING TO SAY:

"YOU'RE GOING TO LIKE ME
MORE THAN YOU LIKE WHITLEY"?

IT'S CRAZY.

RUDY CAN LIKE ANYONE SHE WANTS.

EVEN WHITLEY.

IT'S OKAY

THAT SHE DIDN'T WANT TO GO
TO THE DOLL MUSEUM.

SHE WOULD HAVE LIKED
THE HAPPY PILGRIM.

I REMEMBER ONCE,
SONDRA SAVED ALL HER MONEY

TO TAKE ME TO THIS CHRISTMAS
SHOW AT RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL.

ALL I WANTED TO DO
WAS GO TO THE AUTOMAT.

I ATE A LIVERWURST SANDWICH.

IT'S JUST ONE WEEKEND.

AS LONG AS RUDY'S HAPPY...

I WANT MY BABY SISTER.

IF I HAD A SISTER,
I'D LIKE HER TO BE LIKE BETH--

THE GOOD SISTER WHO BROUGHT
SUNSHINE INTO ALL THEIR LIVES

AND THEN DIED.

YVONNE, I SEE THE PHONE
IS BACK ON THE HOOK AGAIN.

I HOPE I DIDN'T CALL YOU
AT A BAD TIME.

IT WAS OUT OF ORDER?

FOR THE WHOLE DAY?

OH.

I SEE.

WELL, NO, I'M NOT UPSET.

IT'S JUST THAT I HEARD

YOU AND LAMAR HAD DINNER
THE OTHER NIGHT

AND I GUESS
I JUST GOT THIS CRAZY PICTURE

OF YOU AND HIM,
AND WELL, YOU KNOW.

LET ME ASK YOU ONE QUESTION.

WHAT DID YOU ORDER?

THE TUNA SALAD?

THAT'S MY GIRL.

HE DID?

REALLY?

WELL, YEAH, SURE,
YOU CAN GIVE HIM MY NUMBER.

NO, I DON'T KNOW
IF I'LL SEE HIM

BUT YOU, ON THE OTHER HAND,
I DO WANT TO SEE, SO...

WELL, TAKE THE BUS.

I'LL TREAT.

I MISS YOU, TOO, YVONNE.

LOVE YOU.

BYE.

SHE HAD THE TUNA SALAD.

YES!

( knocking )

ENTREZ.

SORRY, JALEESA,
NO ROOM AT THE INN.

I'M HERE ABOUT RUDY.

LOOK, SHE CAME HERE
TO VISIT HER SISTER

AND YOU ARE
MONOPOLIZING HER TIME.

DID YOU NOT COME HERE
24 HOURS AGO

BEGGING ME TO SHELTER
THE HELPLESS CHILD?

LOOK, DENISE IS REALLY
HURTING OVER THIS.

CAN I HELP IT
IF THE GIRL ENJOYS MY COMPANY?

OKAY, WHITLEY, WHY DON'T YOU
JUST FORGET I EVEN CAME IN HERE?

I WILL TRY.

WHEN I GO TO COLLEGE

I'M GOING TO HAVE TOWELS
THAT SAY "LILLIAN" ON THEM.

LILLIAN, YOU LOVE DENISE,
DON'T YOU?

SURE.

OF COURSE YOU DO.

CAN I VISIT YOU AGAIN?

WHEN YOU VISIT DENISE?

I'LL SEE HER, TOO,
BUT I'VE SEEN HER

ALL MY LIFE.

WELL, WOULD YOU LIKE ME
TO TELL YOU A STORY?

OKAY.

THIS IS THE SAME STORY
MY MOTHER TOLD ME

WHEN I WAS YOUR AGE.

IT'S THE STORY
OF THE SNOW QUEEN.

SHE WORE A CROWN?

SHE CERTAINLY DID.

"ONCE UPON A TIME

"THERE WERE TWO CHILDREN
WHO LOVED EACH OTHER VERY MUCH.

"THE BIG SISTER
WAS CALLED GERDA

AND THE LITTLE SISTER
WAS CALLED KAI."

HOW OLD WAS THE LITTLE SISTER?

SHE WAS ABOUT YOUR AGE.

ONE DAY, THE TWO SISTERS
WERE PLAYING

IN THEIR BEAUTIFUL GARDEN
FILLED WITH ROSES.

IT BEGAN TO GET
VERY, VERY COLD.

THE ROSES WILTED
AND WITHERED ON THEIR STEMS.

SOON, IT BEGAN TO SNOW.

IN THE MIDST OF THE SNOW

A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN APPEARED,
DRESSED ENTIRELY IN WHITE.

SHE WORE A CROWN?

YES. SHE WAS THE SNOW QUEEN.

SHE BECKONED TO KAI

WRAPPED HER UP
IN A LONG, FUR CLOAK

AND CARRIED HER OFF TO HER
GLITTERING PALACE OF ICE.

WAS IT COLD?

YES, BUT KAI DIDN'T NOTICE

BECAUSE THE LADY
WAS SO BEAUTIFUL.

LIKE YOU?

YES.

LIKE ME.

KAI WAS VERY HAPPY
IN THE PALACE

BECAUSE THE QUEEN LET HER
DRESS UP IN SILKS AND SATIN

GAVE HER PERFUME,
AND EVEN HER CROWN TO WEAR.

BUT BACK IN THE GARDEN,
GERDA WAS VERY, VERY SAD.

SHE WENT TO
THE QUEEN'S SHIMMERING KINGDOM

IN SEARCH OF HER LITTLE SISTER

BUT WHEN SHE REACHED
THE PALACE OF ICE

SHE FOUND THAT THE QUEEN
HAD PIERCED KAI'S HEART

WITH A TINY SLIVER OF ICE.

GERDA'S LITTLE SISTER
DIDN'T EVEN KNOW HER.

SHE DIDN'T EVEN SAY HELLO?

NO.

AND THIS HURT GERDA VERY BADLY

AND SHE SOBBED

UNTIL HER HOT, SALTY TEARS
FELL UPON KAI'S HEART

AND MELTED ALL THE ICE AWAY.

THE SNOW QUEEN

AND THE PALACE VANISHED

AND THE SISTERS
FOUND THEMSELVES TOGETHER AGAIN

IN THEIR BEAUTIFUL GARDEN
FILLED WITH ROSES.

DO YOU THINK DENISE
IS STILL AWAKE?

WHY DON'T YOU GO SEE?

I'M NOT ONE TO IMPOSE MY VIEWS,
BUT I SUGGEST YOU STAY TUNED.

IT MAKES HIM
LOOK LIKE A BEAR.

I THINK WE MISSED BREAKFAST.

THEN WE CAN GO
TO BRUNCH.

BRUNCH?

YEAH, BUT NOT AT
THE HAPPY PILGRIM.

FINE WITH ME.

THEN WE CAN GO
TO THE DOLL MUSEUM.

WE DON'T HAVE TO.

BUT I WANT TO.

( knocking )

COME IN.

MORNING.

I THINK THIS BELONGS TO YOU.

PETER GOT A NEW WINTER COAT
WITH FUR ON ITS COLLAR.

THANK YOU.

THANKS, WHITLEY.

NOTHING TO THANK ME FOR.

I THINK THERE IS.

WE'RE GOING
TO BRUNCH.

DO YOU WANT TO JOIN US?

WELL, NEITHER MY SCHEDULE
NOR MY WAISTLINE

WILL PERMIT THAT

BUT YOU TWO ENJOY YOURSELVES.

BYE, LILLIAN.

I MEAN RUDY.

BYE, WHITLEY.

COME AND VISIT US IN BROOKLYN.

BRING THE CROWD.

THAT'S VERY GRACIOUS OF YOU,
RUDY.

YOU KNOW, DENISE,
IT IS AMAZING

HOW TWO SISTERS CAN BE
SO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT.
