Finally We Eat! (Photostory)
"How about you meet me at the office. I'm headed there right now. (pause) I know what I told you earlier, but things have changed and I have a couple of hours free. I really want to go over those files again for Friday's case. (pause) No, I just ate. I'll see you in a few." (Melanie)
"So Mom, when do you want me to come over and put those shelves together?" (Chris)
"You can come any time next week. I'll be working on the house every day." (Barbara)
"Did you want me to come help you unpack? I can take a few days off from work." (Marisa)
"Oh, I don't want you taking time off from work. As long as I have the house put together by Thanksgiving, I'm fine." (Barbara)
"Are you hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, Barbara?" (Kara)
"I'm considering it. I should know for sure by Halloween." (Barbara)
"You want some?" (Nicole)
"What is it?" (Julian)
"Are you okay? You're awfully quiet over there." (Rod)
"Am I? I don't mean to be. I was just sort of catching my breath." (Danielle)
Rod can tell Danielle is a little perturbed at the encounter with Melanie. He will have to do something special for her later.
Halle and Diego's appetizer has arrived. Diego has moved his chair closer to Halle.
"So when are we going to talk about the vacation you promised me? You keep postponing and I'm starting to think you don't want to go. Am I missing something here? Talk to me." (Diego)
Halle reaches out and touches Diego's face.
"Oh honey. You're not missing anything. Fashion Week is just such a busy time that I can hardly think straight. So I can't even wrap my brain around planning a vacation right now." (Halle)
"I don't need you to plan it. I'll take care of that. All I need from you is a date, so I can book the cruise." (Diego)
"Two for dinner?" (Hostess)
Vernon and Naisha have arrived.
The hostess grabs a couple of menus.
"Right this way." (Hostess(
"So tonight young lady, when we get home, we are picking a date to go on vacation. I go on vacation every year, and I want you with me." (Diego)
"Okay. Okay. Tonight we scour my calendar and find some potential dates' (Halle)
The waitress arrives with the unlimited sushi boat.
"Here we go." (Waitress)
"Want a bite?" (Halle)
"I sure do." (Diego)
"Your food is coming out in a few minutes." (Waitress)
"Mommy, I want what Nicole has." (Julian)
"What can I get you two to drink?" (Hostess)
"Can we get a bottle of champagne?" (Vernon)
"Kara, when are you performing again?" (Marisa)
"Jolisa, you're going to spill your milk. Give it to me, please." (Kara)
"Oh yes, Kara and Chris. I'm so anxious to hear you two." (Barbara)
"We are not slated to perform again for another month. But I will definitely send you an invite to the next function." (Kara)
The food has arrived.
"Did I forget anything?" (Waitress)
"I think it's all here. Thanks." (Rod)
"Julian, have a seat, hon." (Danielle)
Everyone gets settled in and the family enjoys their dinner. By the end of the meal, Danielle is back to her normal happy self. This concludes our family dinner time series.
