Brandy's Day Off (Photostory)
As in real life, grocery shopping is a never ending chore in Morristown.
Lynette enters Jordan's with little Layla. She just needs to pick up a few things, so she just grabs a shopping basket.
"Will that be all today?" (Cashier Chad)
"Yes. Oh, I guess I should have taken the groceries out. Sorry about that." (Swiss Poppy)
"No problem." (Cashier Chad)
Halle has just run into Angelina. She's asking her about her recent date with Brad. After all, Halle is the one who introduced them.
"It went really well. We didn't want it to end, but I made him take me home." (Angelina)
"Dang. I left the shopping list on the table." (Kate)
"We will just wing it." (Tim)
William has set his eyes on the watermelon.
The cashier packs the bag, as Swiss Poppy puts her wallet back in her purse.
"Mommy can we get one of these?" (William)
"Ooh, that will be nice for our picnic." (Kate)
"Well I have to get going. Diego is going to be wondering where I am." (Halle)
The two give a quick hug before Halle heads to the cash register, and Angelina continues her shopping.
Tim and Kate are trying to make sure they get everything they need for the cookout they are having at their home this weekend.
"Do we still have peanut butter at home?" (Kate)
"Mmmm, I'm not sure.." (Tim)
"I better get it. I'm thinking of making a nice thai sauce for the chicken." (Kate)
"Hi. How are you?" (Cashier Chad)
Chad's all too happy to see Halle. He's not usually working the cash register. He's filling in for Brandy, who has the day off. All morning long, gorgeous women have been coming through the line. That smile keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Speaking of Brandy, she just walked through the door with Diana.
Brnady and Diana speak to Halle as she exits the store.
"Hi Chad. I'd like you to meet my mom, Diana." (Brandy)
"Hello ma'am. Are you enjoying your visit to Morristown?" (Chad)
"I certainly am." (Diana)
Roy, the store manager, approaches Brandy and Diana.
"Hi boss. I just wanted to bring my mom by to meet you." (Brandy)
"Can you get some red and green peppers? I'm thinking about doing a few kabobs on the grill." (Tim)
"Daaad, I want to get ouuut!" (William)
"Hey. You are making too much noise. Quiet down." (Tim)
"Hello. It's such a pleasure to meet you. You have a wonderful daughter." (Roy)
"Hello. Pleasure to meet you, too. I'm glad to hear my daughter is making such a great impression." (Diana)
"So what are you ladies up to today?" (Roy)
"We're going to do a little shopping, and then we're having dinner at the new Asian restaurant." (Brandy)
Kate grabs some juice, while Tim takes William out of the cart. He sees the dog food on the top shelf and remembers his recent business transaction with Monica. Ever since meeting her, he's thought about getting a dog for William.
Well that concludes this trip to Jordan's. There may be a second part. I had a couple more families all ready to enter the store. Initially, Diana was just going to be a shopper, but when I picked up my Brandy doll, it clicked that these two should be mother and daughter. For those of you who don't know, Diana Ross and Brandy played mother and daughter in a 1999 film called Double Platinum. Below are two videos. The first one features Brandy and Diana, singing a duet from the movie. The second video is the entire movie. Now I am in search of a Billy Dee Williams doll to play Diana's husband. No one can fill that role like Billy.
