  • I know.
  • It's Christmas eve!
  • The Watch Shop
  • Ooh, I'll get him a chain for his watch!
  • The Hair Salon
  • OOO, I'll get her a comb for her beautiful hair!
  • Can I sell my hair?
  • We Buy Hair! Good quality for $100!
  • But of course! Beautiful hair like yours costs a fortune! I'll give you 100 dollars.
  • Excuse me sir, I'd like to sell this watch. I'm going to buy my wife some beautiful combs for her beautiful hair!
  • It's Christmas time, and Della is wondering what to get her husband as a gift. She doesn't have a lot of money to buy anything with though.
  • Of course! You're such a great husband!
  • They both want to get each other something for Christmas.
  • What did you do to your hair?
  • I cut it all off, so that I could buy you a new watch chain! Oh please tell me you like it?
  • Bummer! I sold my watch to get you these combs for your hair...
  • Della soon finds out that the watch chain is very expensive, so she sells the only thing that will get her enough money to buy it; her hair. Even though she doesn't want to, she goes to the hair salon to get it cut off, continuously reminding herself that this was for her dear husband.
  • Meanwhile, at the watch shop...
  • Back at the house...the couple has gotten ready for Christmas dinner, and Della is about to show her husband her new haircut.
  • Situational irony everyone...they both sold their most precious possessions to get something to match their most precious posessions, but neither of them can use them now.
