She is to appear in a live commercial spot during a Happy Soap sponsored television show telling her story just as she told Tom. Despite Beverly's performance going poorly in her own mind, Tom loved it and how refreshing and honest Beverly came across to the viewer.

'Dr Schultz,

you are wanted in Surgery Two, emergency.

'Dr Schultz, emergency, Surgery Two.'

- Mr Caputo?

- Yeah, that's me. That's me.

It's a beautiful seven-pound baby girl.

They're fine.

How about that? Seven-pound baby girl!

- H-How much did it weigh?

- Seven pounds.

You can see your wife and daughter now.

- Don't I have to be sterile?

- The nurse will give you a hospital gown.

Thank you, Doc. I mean, thank you, Doctor!

- You're welcome.

- Thanks.

'Dr Gerald Boyer, telephone.

Dr Gerald Boyer, telephone.

'Dr Boyer, telephone, please.'

Dr Boyer.

Who? Mr Gardiner Fra...

Oh, yes, Mr Fraleigh!

How are you, sir? What can I do for you?

Oh, not a thing, my boy.

I'm just calling on behalf

of Mrs Fraleigh and myself.

I can't tell you how utterly delighted

we both are at the news.

You're a positive genius.

I'm afraid you're giving me

more credit than I deserve.

Oh, nonsense.

We're eternally grateful to you, Doctor.

I'm happy to have done what I could.

Just a moment, Doctor.

Doctor, I'm having a family dinner tonight

to celebrate what happened.

It would give us great pleasure

if you and your wife could come.

- That's very nice of you but I...

- Please, don't say no.

I know how busy you must be

but couldn't you look on this visit

as a house call?

It would mean so much to us

if you could be there. Please?

All right, very well. We'll be there.

Thank you, Doctor.

Our chauffeur will pick you up at your home.

Oh, no, it's really no trouble at all. I insist.

- Goodbye, Mrs Fraleigh.

- Goodbye.

Let me do that for you.


Come on, now. Sit around here.

Tilt your head back.

I said back, not forward. Come on, now.

I want to shampoo your hair.

- I don't want you to shampoo me!

- Darling, I don't have time for games today.

I have a roast in the oven

and Mommy's very busy.

- I don't want you to shampoo me.

- Maggie, why not?

- Cos that shampoo smells ooky!

- Oh, Lord.

It smells like it always smells.

Smells like the cracks in the school yard.

Can't we use the new soap you bought?

If I didn't have a roast in the oven,

you'd get the pine tar and like it.

- Mommy, the phone is ringing.

- I know it is.

Pick it up, honey, and find out who it is.

Hello? Who is this?

This is Daddy.

Hello, Andy, how's my big...

- It was Daddy.

- Oh, what did he say?

"Hello, Andy."

Answer the phone and tell Daddy

that Mommy's shampooing Maggie's hair.

- Mommy's shampooing Maggie's hair.

- Ask Daddy what he wants.

Don't hang up...

Oh, no, Andy.

I told Daddy.

You didn't hang up on him again?

Oh, Andrew. Now, this time

ask Daddy what he wants
