Jane: (Lights a fag) Ya. Sure. Somethin’ like that! ~puff-drag-puff~
Blanche: Look Sister. Why don’t you go up in the attic and bring the rest of the Holiday decorations down here and we’ll decorate the tree- together.
Jane: Oh, you’d like that wouldn’t ya Sister Dear? ~puff~
Blanche: Look Jane, Mr. Sorenson is coming by with a fresh, balsam spruce this afternoon and think of the fun we’d have decorating it all up. Why I could bake some brownies and make hot chocolate.

Blanche: We could turn on the old 8 Track machine, plug in a Perry Como tape and hang some balls and light the lights!
Jane: ~sarcastically~ Now, wouldn’t that just be a “ball” of fun! You and me actin’ like sisters, Sister!
Blanche: Oh c’mon Jane. It’ll be fun. Do it for me.

Blanche wheels away into the kitchen to bake her brownies while Jane heads for the attic room and the Christmas Boxes. Looks like it just might be a Happy Holiday on Bleeker Street this year!
