Together Again

Synopsis: Anne Crandall is the mayor of a small town in Vermont. Her deceased husband had been the mayor for years and when he died, she was left to carry on and to raise his daughter from his first marriage. She lives with the daughter, her father-in-law and a housekeeper. In the town square, there was a statue of her late husband and every year since his death, they have an anniversary celebration there. This year during a thunderstorm, the statue is hit by lightning and the head falls off. The daughter insists that a new statue be erected instead of patching the old one. Mayor Crandall is sent to New York to interview the prospective sculptor, George Corday. While there, she gets involved in a nightclub raid and goes to jail after she is mistaken for the club's stripper. Back at home, she tries to keep the scandal quiet and to forget Corday but he shows up and moves into her garage to work on the statue. Corday playfully uses the scandal to blackmail her into accepting his advances. Ann Crand

You`ll understand if I don`t let you

go in with me, won`t you, Gilbert?

Under the circumstances,

I would like a moment alone with my father.

Do you have to be so darn dramatic

about everything?

Good night! Your father is only a statue.

How does he know

whether you`re alone with him or not?

I forgive you for that, Gilbert.

I realize you can`t help it if you

don`t understand about certain things,

you being from the South the way you are.

That statue just happens to

be symbolic of the very soul

of this town, that`s all.

Now it looks like it`s going to rain,

so if you don`t mind, l`m in kind of a hurry.

I`ll see you at school tomorrow.

You will not.

You`ll come by for me like you always do.

I know it.

-Hello, Diana.

-Good evening.

I always save all the ribbons.

Sometimes the wordings on them

absolutely make you cry,

they`re so beautiful.

Well, it ain`t every statue

that has memorial services

-for it every year.

-Well, I guess not.

The Water Department is

always the most poetical.

Last year, their ribbon said,

``Every drop of our water is

a tear for your departure.``

Isn`t that super?

It makes me so happy to think

of all the hoses and faucets and things

all over town crying about my father.

A birthday party for a statue!

Why, it`s enough to turn your stomach.

Folks thought a heap of Jonathan, Mort.

Well, I didn`t.

And now I not only have to

look at him day and night,

but I have to look at him from behind.

The first thing l`m going to do

when l`m mayor of this town

is get rid of that hulking insult!

I wouldn`t be so sure of myself,

if I was you, Mort.

Folks think a heap of Anne, too.

A lady mayor. Why, it`s a disgrace.

There`s lots of lady things nowadays, Mort.

It wouldn`t startle me none if

someday we`ll have a lady president.

-I hope l`m dead!

-Anne has done a good job, Mort.

I was talking to somebody just

the other night about her reelection and...

You`re supposed to be talking about me.

You work for me, don`t you?

Sure, Mort, but you`ve been running

for mayor against the Crandall family

for so many years that

nobody pays any attention to it anymore.

-lf I can`t beat a woman...

-She has done a good job, Mort.

But she`ll slip. Women always do.

And when she does, l`ll be around, Perc.

I`ll be around.

Jessie`s waxed the stairs again.

I wish she wouldn`t.

That`s the third time l`ve slipped.

Besides, it makes the hall smell

like an old bee`s nest.

I told her about it a dozen times,

but it seems Diana likes them waxed.

It seems Jessie likes them waxed.

It seems they`ve been waxed for 100 years.

It also seems you`re a big shot in your office

and a nonentity at home.

It`s starting to rain. Has Diana come in yet?

Why should she come in?

There are two men out there

watching her be wistful.

She won`t walk out on that in a hurry.

-Shame on you. How do you feel?

-Gout isn`t very pleasant, you know.

Of course not.

It seems such a pity it has to flare up

every time the family is expected

to make a public appearance.

-lt does seem a pity, doesn`t it?


That`s just what I thought.

It`s a little late, isn`t it? Faker!

For heaven`s sakes, don`t tell Diana.

Father, I really should.

It would serve you right.

You ought to be ashamed of yourself.

-Well, l`m not.



Hello, Diana.

Grandfather Crandall, you weren`t sick.

You didn`t have the gout at all.

You just didn`t want to

go to the anniversary. You cheated.

I don`t know where you get

this dishonesty about things.

You certainly didn`t get it from me

or my father.

It`s not that I care about myself,
