On the street by the “subway station,” Christy and Bridget put out some trees. Catherine is bitter about the trees and Christmas in general. Gee, I sure hope she learns to find the true meaning of Christmas by the time the movie is done! Her friend tries to convince her to picture Christy as a sexual object. Catherine will have no part of that, thank you! Christy tries to sell her a tree, but Catherine refuses. I guess she used to be a prime customer, but in the past few years, she just doesn’t feel the urge. Ellen DeGeneres knows all about that (cheap, but I had to do it)! Everyone wears hats and scarves, but you can’t see anyone’s breath. Because it’s a set. In L.A. Convincing, Hallmark.
At Catherine’s office, she has a bunch of photos spread out on a desk. Her boss comes in and says the caption for the latest should read, “Silver Bells.” Ding ding ding! We have a title, people. Boss wants to give the photographer a bonus. Boss’s son comes in to talk about the “look up” project. Blah blah blah the son is a scrooge. That’s all you need to know. I guess the “look up” project is all about New Yorkers looking up at the architecture in the city. Well, that’s dumb. Then you’d just have a bunch of pedestrians running into each other, tripping over sidewalks and curbs. That’s a lot of spilled and wasted Starbucks coffee, if you ask me.
It’s night now, and Mrs. Quinn has put up Christmas lights in her windows, but she seems to have gotten drunk on too many hot buttered rums because her star? Is really incomplete.
Star of wonder, star of half-assed-ness.
Christy says good night to Bridget, who asks if they’ll ever see Danny again. Doesn’t she realize it’s a Hallmark movie? Just relax, Bridget. Danny tells Mrs. Quinn that he’s going out to look for Danny, and heads down to the “subway.”
He encounters a homeless man on a bench, holds out a photo of Danny, and asks if the homeless man has seen him. The homeless man wants no part of this, thank you very much, and goes to sleep. Without asking for money. That kind of laziness leads to homelessness, homeless man. Montage of Catherine sitting by the fire interspersed with photos of the mystery man. And now we’re on the roof of Mrs. Quinn’s building, where Bridget sits. Who edited this thing, a goldfish?
Mrs. Quinn comes out to talk to Bridget about being okay to be worried about Danny and Christy. I have to say that the actress who plays Bridget is really doing the best with what she has. Which is pretty much nothing. Mrs. Quinn says things will work out. Aw, Bridget misses her mom. But she’s dead, Bridget. She died around Christmastime. Meanwhile, at the cleanest hobo camp ever, Christy asks homeless people about Danny. Everyone ignores him. Again, no one asks for money. Hallmark does not condone panhandling, okay?
