  • Della collasped on the couch, torn. She really wants to give Jim, the love of her life, a nice gift for Christmas. She was ecstatic when an idea stuck her.
  • Oh, for what could I get Jim with only $1.87?
  • Maybe I can buy a hat...
  • Della decides to sell h r most prize possession, her hair. Gradually, her hair became shorter and shorter. Eventually, her predominant hair was no longer.
  • I'll give you $20...
  • Money in hand, Della finds the perfect present for Jim. She proceeds to parsimoniously purchase the chain and adventures to the apartment, where she waits for Jim to arrive from his not-so-prosperous job.
  • The chain will be perfect for Jim's beloved fob watch!
  • Watch chains sold here!
  • Darling, I got the most amazing gift! Combs for your hair!
  • Jim reveals he had bought Della combs for her hair, which he had not noticed she had cut off yet. The only thing not inconsequential about his gift is his generosity.
  • Oh, Jim...
  • Della, why are you hiding your beautiful hair under that hat?
  • Della explains her act of love to Jim and attempted to make matters better by presenting her gift to him.
  • Jim, I'm so sorry! I sold my hair to get you your present from me! It will grow back fast!
  • Look, Jim! I bought you a chain for your watch!
  • Oh, Della! I sold my watch to buy your combs!
  • Jim tells the shocking truth, he had sold his watch in order to buy Della's combs! Making both of their presents unusable.
