Christmas in Connecticut

She did? I mean, we did?
Twenty-three pages
of new advertisements, all baby food.

Her fan mail went up 100 percent.
A hundred percent. Think of it.
Other new mothers all over
the country were interested.

That is the key of my success
in the magazine field.

Human interest, home appeal.
Do you follow me?

- Yes. Go ahead. It's very interesting.
- One baby, 200,000.

Two babies, 400,000.
Babies boost circulation.

Now, Betty Kane is going to have
her baby in September.

We can steal their thunder
and boost circulation at the same time...

...if we beat her to it.
- Beat her to it?
- Have another baby, Sloan.

Have another baby. Any hopes?
Mr. Yardley, Elizabeth's
a very busy woman.

And having babies to boost
your circulation takes time.

Take all the time you need, my dear sir,
all the time you need.

Well, thank you.
- Yes, Nora?
- Telephone for you, Mr. Sloan.

Oh, excuse me, Mr. Yardley.
Hello? Oh, hello, judge.
Yes, I'm glad you called.
What? Fifteen minutes? Oh, my goodness.
Yes, indeed. Absolutely. All right.
Well, I'll arrange everything.
Okay. Goodbye.

Well, my children, I guess it's bedtime.
We retire early on the farm.
Come along, Elizabeth.
John, it's Christmas Eve.
The judge will be here in 15 minutes.
I'm just about ready to turn in.
Nothing like a good dinner
to make a man sleepy.

I'm very grateful to you
for your hospitality, Mrs. Sloan.

- You're welcome.
- I'll just turn out the lights, dear.

- Good night, everybody.
- Good night.

Good night, Mr. Yardley.
I hope you sleep well.

I shall in that
fine old colonial four-poster.

Good night, Mrs. Sloan.
Good night, Jones.

Good night, Mr. Yardley.
Well, good night, Mrs. Sloan.
