Man over radio:

Expect typical December weather

with highs today in the mid 50s

across the Southland.

On the business front,

it's the last week before Christmas

and retailers are reporting

a 50% increase

over sales figures

from last year-

a sign that the economy

is rebound-

Mom, I can't find

my pink hair-clip!

I can't find my other shoe. It's missing!

- Where are my hair-clips?

- What did you do with it yesterday

when you got home from school?

You're always losing the pink ones

so wear the blue ones.

I wore the blue ones last week.

So wear the fuzzy ones.

- What fuzzy ones?

- The fuzzy pink ones.

- Those are uncool.

- I don't know.

Then just wear your hair down.

It looks very pretty.

Just brush it.

Put it behind your ears.

I know you're just saying that.

I'll wear a headband!

Mom, where's my other shoe?

Oh wow.

You two better not be

on the computer.

You don't want to be late the last day

before winter break.

Where's the phone?


Oh hi, honey.

The kids?

Oh, perfect angels as always.

- Girl:

- Mother's on the phone with Daddy!


did you have a chance to think

about what we talked about?

Getting a nanny.

Well, it's just really tough

without you here, Carl.

And I could use the help, you know?

Speaking of which, how are things

in the New York office?

Ally Leeds.

Hi, Mr. Halligan.

The Danny Donner Chocolates pitch?

Don't worry-

it's all under control.

Did you hear? Danny Donner is

looking for a new ad agency.

Mm-hmm. Yeah, he wants to

take his image in a new direction.

Yes, I spent all night going over

the statistics

and I am confident that Mr. Donner

is going to love what we have to offer him.

Of course. I've got Justin's team

working on new ideas right now.

You know, Carl,

if we could get this account,

we could totally turn things around.

Hold on. Breakfast!

He would be a fool not to

sign with Halligan Ad Consultants.


No, I've got everything handled.

All right, I'll see you then.


Really? So I guess you're not

coming home for Christmas then?

Mom, Jonas flushed my hair-clips

down the toilet!

It wasn't her hair-clips,

it was her hairbrush.

- What?

- Your action figures are going down!

Um, yeah...

No, of course I understand, Carl.

I do.

I, um, just...

call me when you

think about it, okay?

Hold on.

Which toilet?

Jackie, Jonas, have you

seen my handbag?

Yeah, love you too.

Okay, you ready?

- Mm-hmm.

- Where's your backpack?

Come on.


Talk to me.

Mr. Donner, we realize that you're unhappy

with your current advertising agency.

And we appreciate the fact that

you're taking time off to come here.

We feel confident Halligan Ad Consultants

will be the best fit for your company.

Okay, let's go.

All right, allow me to introduce

my associate, Ally Leeds.

Ally, take it away, please.

When you sign with

Halligan Ad Consultants,

you're not just signing with

an ad agency;

you're signing with

a specialized team-

a team formed around your product.

That means a team of high-level

executives that are working 24/7,

coming up with creative ideas

with one purpose in mind:

to boost the sales of the single

best brand of chocolates

on the marketplace today.

Because at Danny Donner Chocolates,

you're not just selling chocolate;

you're selling life.

Your birthday...

the birth of your first child...

...your parents' 50th anniversary...

and of course...

your wedding.

My wedding?

My wedding?

My wedding?!

Is there something wrong

with weddings?

Mr. Donner, I wonder if we just-

Mr. Halligan, I appreciate your hospitality,
