Stop fidgeting.

Why do we have

to see your dad?

I mean, maybe

there's a problem.

Maybe there's something

wrong with the financing.

You know, maybe

it hit a snag.



There's my little girl!



Sir, I just want

you to know that I...

Sit, sit.


Sit, sit, sit.

Great news.

Just finalized the deal

for 70 percent of Fillmore

for the new resort and spa.

Wow, 70 percent,

that's phenomenal.

What about the other

30 percent?

Well, made the town

a generous offer,

and they've agreed

to give it to us.


Yeah, you know,

eminent domain.

They're going

to declare it a eyesore

or blighted or something.

It's standard procedure.

Blighted? Fillmore, really?

Yeah. Hey, I need you

to go up there tomorrow

and get the city council

to agree to it, too.

That's it. Bye, honey.

Wait, wait, wait, sir.

I don't really think I'm the

right person for the job.

What are you

talking about?

You're my number 1

attack dog.

Plus, I mean,

isn't it your hometown?

Yeah, that's the problem.

Oh, that reminds me.

If we work the financing

by New Year's,

we have to have

the paperwork filed

before the start

of the holiday season.

Okay, I totally

understand that,

but, sir,

I really think...

Hey, kid.


You're not going

in this alone.



You've got

the light of my life,

and more importantly,

I put together this.

It's me, it's awesome,

and play it during the meeting.

You're going to be fine.

It's a small town, and I

haven't been there in a while.

And besides, I had

that really special thing

planned for this weekend.

Yeah, I know.

I'm sorry I'm being

so insensitive.

If I were you,

I would do that special thing

on the way home,

after you've made the deal

and pleased your boss.

You know? Do that.


This guy! I see, you know...


Have fun.


He's fantastic.

I know.

Well, guess we're

going to Fillmore.

When the Christmas lights

are twinkling

And the glistening snow

has fallen

Sleigh bells keep

a perfect rhythm for

A Christmas dance

with you

Time's suspended,

hold me closer


a starry blanket

I'd give anything,

including the moon

For a Christmas dance

with you

I can't remember

a feeling like this

Such heavenly bliss

Intoxicated by your kiss

And if you should ask me

I'll say I don't mind

So were you able

to reschedule

the other thing

we talked about?

Well, once we wrap

this proposal,

then we'll get started

on the other proposal.

I knew you'd

work it out, buddy,

Hold on a second.


That's great,

you're kidding.

That... that's fantastic news.

Hold on a second.

Uh-huh, sure.

Okay, I'm back.

So tell me, what is

the big plan anyway?

It's perfect,

it's this great little

town in Connecticut. It's...

where we went on

our first date.

You know what?

That reminds me of my second

wife, when I proposed to her.

I had the Blue Angels

write up in the sky...

We were in San Fran, and we...

Uh, you know what?

Wait a minute, maybe...

It was Tel Aviv

because it was in Hebrew.

So it had to be

my third wife.

Right, but it's just

as romantic, I hope.

Well, you know

what I always say...

actions speak

louder than words.

Yes, they do.

So do you have,

uh, it on you?

It is a $15,000 ring,

and I'm not letting it

out of my sight.


You got off easy, buddy,

but I'll tell you what.

My daughter's going

to be very happy.

Very happy, indeed, son.

Call me when you wrap

this whole thing up.

Will do.

I'm still here.

Yeah, he's right here.

I don't know.

He was on the phone.

I don't know who
