It had to be

The only one for me

is you and you for me

So happy together

- Are ya happy, Gingy?

- You bet!

The time since I met you

has been the best...

Good! Because this is

only the beginning.

I'm going to love you and hold you

and feed you and dress you

- and cling to you...

- Yeah...

Hang on to you and

smother you with my love.

- Yeah...

- Forever and ever and ever

- and ever and ever...

- You know,

it's gettin' a little stuffy in here.

You know, I might go get some air.

Oh, no, you don't.

Oh, no...

Not without your umbrella.

- Come on!

- Here, let me get that.

Wait for me!

Sugar, could you just do me

one small, little teensy favor?


Could you leave me alone

for like 30 seconds?

Anything but that.

You know, I forgot my gumdrop buttons.

Yeah! Could you run over there

and get 'em for me, please?

Sure, I can. I'll be right back.

Gingy, Gingy

Run, run, run, as fast as you can

if you wanna remain a gingerbread man!


- Oh, Gingy.

- Whaa...

I don't understand.

- I thought you were happy!

- Oh, well...

It's all my fault.

I should have tried harder!

No, no, no! Don't try harder!

Maybe I'm not pretty enough.

I can be pretty... really pretty!

- The girl of your dreams.

- Aah!




Let go, Gingy!

Fall with me...

so we can be together forever!

Here's a thought...

You let go!


Together fore...

Boy, what a night!

I'm so glad that is over with!

Oh! Oh, well.

- Nothing lasts forever.

- In sports...

Together forever.


Together forever.

Together forever.

Together forever.

What a nice surprise!

Together forever.

Together forever.

Together forever.

Together forever.

- Hey... So what's up?

- Together forever.

I think we both may have said
