Last Holiday

Synopsis: In morte veritas. Georgia Byrd clerks at a New Orleans department store. She defers pleasure: cooks gourmet meals, eats Lean Cuisine; likes a co-worker in silence; has savings, but hasn't left Louisiana. All that changes when a CT Scan discloses she has three weeks to live. She cashes her savings and heads to Europe's Grandhotel Pupp, where Chef Didier presides. She checks into the Presidential Suite, orders everything on the menu, snowboards, and comes to the attention of the chef and the hotel's powerful American guests: a Congressman, a Senator, a retail magnate, and his mistress. She has nothing to lose, so she tells them what she thinks. Will the truth set them free?

and you need to tell him

what you want for Christmas.

- You just sit in his lap...

- Hey! Rochelle, come on, now.

What? No...

What are you worried about?

That they're going to fire you

in this place?

Take your coffee and go!

You're the best damn worker they got

in this whole damn place.

They're not gonna fire you.

You're just scared.

You're scared of some man

getting a hold of all that booty of yours!

Would you stop?

He could hold my booty.


Attention Kragen shoppers...

stop in our health clinic

on the second floor...

to make sure your holidays...

Right. This piece goes here.

There we go.

It's still crooked, but, yeah, that's good.

- It's good, huh?

- No, no, no.

"Lip of shelf to fit

between grill bottom and leg brace."

That was supposed to be put on last,

but that's all right.

Thank you.

- Miss Byrd.

- Georgia.

You had some light bulbs to change

or something, remember?

Yeah! Oh, yeah, yeah, light bulbs.

Light bulbs.

You know, they be relying on me...

Hey, I'll see you later.

Yeah. Sure. Yeah.

Is there something I can help you with?

That's quite a nice grill.

- Stainless steel, huh?

- Yeah. Durable.

- Easy to clean?

- You just hose it down.

Just hose it down, huh?

- Are you on your break?

- Yes.

Well, that's why I'm here.

I wanted to ask you something.

Ask me what?

Do you think I'll get my store discount

if I buy this thing?

Well, of course.

Of course you get your store discount.

But I just sold you a grill last week,


Yeah. But that was a hibachi.

That was for traveling.

I think somebody should've told you

when you got this thing...

that you're supposed to have a lawn

or a backyard or something.

Okay, how about a little more lifting

and a little less talking?

That looks good. Smells good, too.
