Mrs. Jackson Makes it to the Spa
The ladies have made their way to the massage area of the spa. Robin is getting a hand massage.
Camille and Jackie are shooting the breeze, and drinking special drinks from the smoothie bar, while waiting for their full body massages.
Terry, the masseur, has just finished with a client.
(Terry is a name change from Max. Character list has been updated.)
"Thank you, Terry. That was fabulous. My neck pain is completely gone." (Nicole)
"You are welcome. I guess I will see you in about 3 weeks." (Terry)
"So is this your first time here? I don't recall seeing you here before." (Sheila, the worker)
"Yes, this is my first time here. I usually go to the spa on Duke street, but this one is much bigger." (Robin)
"Well, let's see if we can't make this a wonderful experience, so you will come back to see us." (Sheila)
Sheila grabs a few more products from her shelf.
"Goodbye Sheila. Thanks again." (Nicole)
"Did you have a good massage?" (Sheila)
"Yes, you know Terry always takes good care of me. I'll see you in a few weeks." (Nicole)
"Ok. You take care." (Sheila)
Nicole heads out of the massage area to the dressing area. Sheila turns her attention back to Robin.
"Ok, Robin. Let's see if we can't work some magic on these fingers." (Sheila)
"Wow, that already feels great." (Robin)
"Mrs. Jackson, I'm ready for you." (Terry)
"There must be some mistake. I requested a female masseuse." (Jackie)
"There must have been a mix up, because our masseuse only works on Wednesdays and Fridays. You can reschedule, if you like" (Terry)
"Give me a minute to decide what I want to do." (Jackie)
Jackie goes over to talk to Robin.
"Do you think I should reschedule? Your dad will not be happy about a man giving me my massage." (Jackie)
"Mom, just don't tell him." (Robin)
"I don't usually keep secrets from your dad." (Jackie)
Jackie decides to go ahead and have the massage. She will deal with the Sam issue later.
"Are you comfortable, Mrs. Jackson?" (Terry)
"Not exactly, but go ahead before I lose my nerve." (Jackie)
"My you are very tense. Let's see what we can do about that. Just relax." (Terry)
Jackie tries to clear her mind and relax. She puts her thoughts on her daughters, instead of her husband. That seemed to work. Already she was feeling a little more relaxed and starting to enjoy Terry's firm but soft hands.
Back in the lobby, Sheila is working on Robin's other hand.
"This is wonderful. I never imagined a hand massage could make you feel so good." (Robin)
A full shot of the massage area of the spa. There are other sections, too.
The spa is owned by the Coopers. The husband and wife have been in a couple of videos before. Mom is Puerto Rican and dad is Black and Puerto Rican (hence the last name Cooper). They are shown with their twin daughters. Their infant baby is missing from the picture. Hmmm. I wonder why?
