  • Della begs and scavenges for money in order to buy a Christmas present for Jim, her husband. She searches the park and the market, but she only finds $1.87.
  • Oh no I only have $1.87!
  • The two most precious possessions of the James Dillingham Youngs were Jim's gold watch and Della's hair. Jim's golden pocket watch was passed down many generations in his family.
  • In order to make money to buy Jim a present, Della goes to "Mdm. Sofronie Hair Goods of All Kinds". She sells her hair for $20.
  • Yeah. I'll give you $20.
  • Can I sell my hair?
  • After selling her hair, Della starts searching for Jim's present. She finds a platinum fob chain that would pair nicely with his golden watch.
  • Jim comes home and sees that her hair is cut. His face is unreadable and it worries Della. Jim tells her he loves her and gives her a set of combs.
  • Oh thank you so much Jim!
  • Where is her hair?
  • Della then gives Jim the fob watch and Jim tells her that her sold his watch in order to buy the combs.
  • Here Jim I got you a fob watch
