[chattering indistinctly]

[Christina] Hi, Dina.

- Hi, you're Christina, right?

- Yes.

I was wondering,

I was talking to Lisa,

and I was like...

I'm like...

nervous of the unexpected.

Like, I don't mind the

needle and being drugged up,

but the thing, the cold piece

of instrument in my mouth.

Would it be

possible for you...

grab my hand

for the beginning or...

- [Christina] I... Okay [laughs]

- Okay.

I won't hurt you...

Yeah, I've heard

that before. [laughs]

You know what's

interesting, though, I...

This is the first time I've... In a

long time that I've had any like...

I swear I was sucking on a piece

of candy, and I was swallowing it

and somehow I crunched

some of it off.

- Right.

- Well, unexpected.

And, you know,

I have a bad habit,

I like sweets, and...


- Oh, okay.

- [Dina mumbling]


[Dina mumbling]

You're so wonderful.

Now, let me take this

out of here.

And then I'm gonna squirt

some more water in here.

[Dina] Mmm-hmm.


And rinse that off, please.


- Can you put your hand out for me?

- Yeah.


- Looking for a hand, huh?

- Mmm.

Hmm, we're almost

done here, Dina.

- Your daughter's name is Gianna?

- [Christina] Yes.

- That's pretty. It sounds Italian.

- Thank you.

- What are you gonna call her, Gia?

- We call her Gigi.

- Oh, okay.

- Yeah.

Well, speaking of

rainbow socks,

I found a rainbow kangaroo.

- Did you?

- Stuffed animal.

- [Christina] I just ordered a rainbow...

- Are you done rinsing?

- Yeah.

- Okay.


A rainbow sock monkey.

I should give you

one of my rainbow...

For your daughter.

[soft guitar music playing]

[woman humming]

So you guys aren't

working today?

- No.

- We were told to get a little vacation.

Tomorrow, we've got

a volleyball tournament

and we've got a

dance there too...

What kind of dance,

from volleyball?

It's just like a social group.

Oh. Is it the Rotary?

- [man] Yeah.

- [woman] Yeah...

Oh, what's that,

Christmas dance?

It's just a social dance.

So we have every...

every Saturday.

- Not every Saturday, but, um...

- That's awesome.

Each month.

Maybe sometime me and Scott will

come along with you and see...

I wanna join, um...

Um, if you do

come to the dance,

- the catch is five dollars.

- Okay.

It doesn't matter where it...

Or I have an idea.

Why don't we bring

the tray over here...

That's what I meant.

That's what,

exactly, what I meant.

I guess it's just

too complicated.

I don't know where

to put all this stuff.

Dina, here. I'll show you.

Dina, relax.

I'm trying to help you.

[Frank] Don't worry.

Dina, Frank and I are...

Dina, Frank and I

are your friend.

And that's what friends are

for, to help each other.

Now watch.

Watch, just watch.

[woman humming]

What's one message that

you'd give for yourself?

That things will be positive

and filled with sunshine

and hope, and...

Yeah, what does hope

make you feel like?

- Hope is...

- When you have that...

When you have that, uh...

What does that make you feel?

Can I just imitate you just

because I'll learn from you?

[woman humming]


They just put me on hold.

Right. That's exactly

what my worry is,

that if I don't get

these benefits

in the office on time,

or correctly,

then I may not be eligible

for the benefits.

And they may think

I'm not interested.

[man on TV] Now, for a new

career opportunity...

Scholarship and financial aid are

available for students who qualify.

Call 866...


You know, I didn't plan this.
