Transcript:

SCENE: A woman holding a comb with her hands clasped at the side of her face/chin.

CAPTION: The Gift of the Magi 2021

WOMAN (thinking): Henry selling his prized watch to buy me this comb was weirdly cute. I won’t sell my hair to get him a new watch…but I’ll show him a real good time! That’s sort of the same thing.
