So, we’re at the skating rink. People are skating. It’s boring. Catherine and Best Friend talk about how Danny will meet Bridget at the rink. But Christy showed up. Will he ruin the plans? Will I care? Man I hate Hallmark so hard right now. Catherine and Christy talk about how Christy has “pushed the person he loves away.” Christy wonders if Danny is still alive, and Catherine says that he is. She says, “When someone you love dies . . .” And Christy completes the sentence by saying, ” . . . part of your heart dies.” Catherine: “You can’t quite believe you can go on breathing.” There’s so much sweetness to this shit that I think I’m diabetic now.
Catherine and Christy skate together. Oh! I really hope they end up together, but I’m just not sure that will happen! Bridget skates around the rink, and Danny yells out to her. They talk about their dad and how he cries at night. “Dad doesn’t cry,” Danny says. “Not when he thinks anyone’s looking,” counters Bridget. Hallmark thinks this is a profound statement. I think it’s stupid. How many times can you roll your eyes before they’re permanently lodged in the back of your head? I guess we’ll see.
Bridget wants to tell Christy about Danny, but Danny makes her promise not to. And then Danny leaves. More skating to lame ass Christmas music. Bridget talks to Best Friend’s daughter about hanging out and Best Friend’s daughter invites Bridget to church to hear her sing in the choir. That sounds like a freaking blast. Christy says they’ll stop by, and he invites Catherine as well. Catherine can’t go, because she worships at the church of the Aliens Who Cause People to Freak Out and End Up in Fresno After Making a Horrible and Pointless Remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. Did you see that movie? What was the point? Shame on you, Gus Van Sant.
But man, wouldn’t this scene come in handy right about now?
It’s another morning. I think it’s 2011 by now. Catherine’s work. Boss’s Son is being all buzz-killy about finding the lights on in the office. Now, I’m not sure, but I think the guy who plays the Boss’s Son was on an episode of Sex and the City. Season 1, I think. I think he played the Catholic guy that Miranda slept with. But I can’t confirm that, and imdb.com brings up nothing. You may think that this random tidbit is pointless, but so far it has been the most interesting thing about this film. So you’re going to have to give it to me.
Catherine gives some stupid excuses, and soon the talk turns to the amateur photos that everyone in “NYC” seems to love. The ones that Danny took. But no one is supposed to know that, so shhhhh. Annnndddd now it’s night again. Catherine runs into Christy at the tree place. He says he’s looking for Danny. He promised his dying wife that he’d look after the kids. Catherine says that before Brian died, he promised her he’d be with her forever. Yeah . . . oops. That didn’t work out so well. But deep down, she knows that “he is here with me. Just not the way I’d like him to be.”
