  • The Dilemma
  • I need to get Jim a Christmas gift, but I only have $1.87!
  • The Haircut
  • Will you buy my hair?
  • I'll give you $20 for it.
  • Buying the Chain
  • How much for this?
  • $21
  • Della's conflict is that she wants to get Jim a very nice gift for Christmas, but she doesn't have enough money.
  • Jim's Opinion
  • It doesn't make me like my girl any less.
  • My hair grows fast Jim!
  • Della goes out to sell her hair, so that she can afford a Christmas gift for Jim. 
  • The Gift Exchange
  • I sold my watch for your combs.
  • I sold my hair for your chain.
  • Della finds a chain that she can afford, and it is a good gift for Jim because he doesn't have one for his watch.
  • The End
  • Della, let's put our Christmas presents away and keep'em awhile. They're too nice to use just at present.
  • The climax is when Jim sees Della's short hair for the first time because we don't know if Jim will like her haircut or not.
  • The resolution is that Jim and Della both sell one of their belongings to get a gift for the other person. Della cut her hair, and received combs. Jim sold his watch, and received a chain for his watch.
  • The theme is sacrifices are worth it for the people you love.
