Imitation of Life

How do you do?
How do you do?

A very old
and dear friend.

Oh, and, uh,
Miss Morton.

Hi. Hello.
Nice meeting you.

Oh, Steve,
it's been so long.

Ten years.
Oh, and you haven't
changed a bit.

How are Annie
and the kids?
Oh, Annie's fine.

You'd never know
the children, they're
so grown-up and lovely.

Uh, look, we're
all going to my house
to wait for the reviews.

- Why don't you join us?
- Well, let's get going.

You mind us
riding with you folks?
Fine. We have plenty of room.

That'd be nice.
All right.

Mmm. I'm glad
the opening's over.

Now I hope Mother will
have some time for me
before my graduation.

I have a lot of subjects
I wanna discuss with her.
I don't want to forget any.

Annie, do you wanna
hear them?
Sure, honey.

The most important
is Jane Beeler's party.
There are gonna be boys.

And under that
I have an "A" and a "B"
I wanna discuss with Mother.

A... How do I make
a boy like me, and B...
Should I let him kiss me.

Isn't that subject
comin' up a little soon?

The girls in school
discuss it all the time.

My goodness!
They're here already!

Honey, will you run upstairs
and get Sarah Jane?
All right.

All right, ma'am?
It's wonderful.

Thank you.

Annie, are you ready
for a surprise?

Wait till you see
who's here.

Hello, Annie.
Why, Mr. Steve!
Oh, my goodness!
I'll get you
a drink.

You certainly
look fine!

You too, Annie.
How's everything been?

Each day
I count my blessings.

You call doing this
at 1:00 in the morning
a blessing?
Yes, sir.

I can remember when plenty
of ham and eggs was more
than a blessing.
