C.C. VISITS PAMELA
TimeDecember 1987 (Episode #854)
CharactersC.C. and Pamela
PremiseThe ill will between C.C., Sophia and Pamela has taken its toll on their children, Kelly and Jeffrey, who recently got married. To please their respective families, Kelly and Jeffrey decided to spend Christmas with them instead of each other.
TranscriptPamela opens her door viewer to reveal C.C.
C.C.: Good evening, Pamela. I would like to have a word with you concerning a matter about your son and my daughter.
Pamela: (closes the viewer and opens the door to admit him) Come in.
C.C.: Thank you. (walks in)
Pamela: Please sit down.
C.C.: Well, it's obvious to me, as it must be to you, that the discord between the two of us has caused a great amount of unhappiness between our children. (they both sit)
Pamela: Yes, and so uncalled for.
C.C.: My feeling exactly.
Pamela: There is no reason why we couldn't be friends.
C.C.: Well, I'm afraid that does not number among one of the many solutions we could have.
Pamela: I see. Then would you rather convince them that because you dislike me so much, it should be a cause for rejoicing?
C.C.: No Pamela. The problem, as I see it, is our presumption that our children see our situation as we see it.
Pamela: Well, I never tried to influence Jeffrey for or against anyone.
C.C.: Be that as it may, their loyalties to us clearly conflicts with their loyalties towards each other, and we are responsible for that. I would like us to make it sure that they realize their marriage is far more important than any discord between us.
Pamela: I agree. But I have broached the subject to Jeffrey more than once. He just thinks I'm being mother.
C.C.: I see. Well, how about if I spoke to him?
Pamela: It might help. Perhaps it will be helpful if I also spoke to Kelly?
C.C.: Possibly. If you can be sincere.
Pamela: (not taking offense) This is all very civilized. I hardly know what to do.
