Part 82: Not Partying for Christmas
Let's talk to everyone and see what they think about our tree.
Music: Easy Feeling
How's the tree?
Good, man. 'Course these lovely ladies make it even better, yeah?
What do you think of the tree?
This makes Louie's infatuation with Mila kinda skeevy. The dialogue I didn't show in Chapter 2 makes it even worse. Your welcome.
Music: Pink Rabbit
I like having everyone here. It's really... Yaaaawwwnn... It's fun...
Good times, huh?
Out like a light.
Melissa fell asleep. Take her back to her room.
Huh? Me? Why do I gotta do it? I wanna chat with Mila, man! You know, flash her a bit of the DeNonno charm!
Louie, the kid's asleep. Take her back to her room before she catches a cold. You work here, remember?
Like I could forget. Yeah, all right, I'm goin'.
Meliss? Hey, c'mon. Let's get ya back to your room.
Louie picks up Melissa and carries her out of the room.
Now we're left with Mila. We should continue asking about her father.
How you feeling? Fever gone?
Good. So, what did you do for Christmas? Who'd you spend it with?
I open my notebook and hand it to Mila. Mila writes something in my notebook.
Music: Rainy Night
My thoughts exactly.
By yourself, huh? Where was your father?
Here you go.
I hand Mila my notebook. Mila writes something.
Music: Rainy Night
He's gone? What, you don't know where he's at?
What does your father do? What's his job? Can you tell me where he lives?
Just write it down for me.
I give Mila my notebook. Mila hestitates, then writes something.
I wonder how many variations of "I open my notebook and hand it to Mila. Mila writes something in my notebook." can they make.
Music: Rainy Night
We can actually figure this out from the newspaper back in Chapter 4.
Gallery May in Santa Monica?
Your father owns an art gallery?
At least we get to actually get the answer from Mila this time.
Music: Hangover Blues
Oh, look at that! What a lovely tree. I bet Melissa was happy.
Yeah, her and Louie both.
Something good came from your snooping after all!
Come on, Mila. I think it's time to go.
Good night, Mr. Hyde. I'll be taking Mila back to my room now.
Oh, and you can go ahead and leave the tree up! It's just too nice to take down!
Rosa leaves, taking Mila with her.
We go out and...
Is that door open?
Let's do the usual rounds.
Music: Straight Chaser
Painting There's a painting of flowers hanging on the wall.
Hockey stick It's a hockey stick. Goes well with the flower painting.

Middle books Looks like some books on literature. Must belong to somebody else.
Middle right books None of these books seem all that important to me.
