"Family Ties: Continued" Episode 8 - "Skippy Gets A Chance"
EPISODE 188 – Skippy Gets A Chance
[Scene: The kitchen. Mallory and Alex are talking.]
Mallory: Have you seen Skippy lately?
Alex: Not since I’ve been back, no.
Mallory: Where is he?
Alex: How would I know?
Mallory: I’m going to call him.
Alex: Then do it.
(Mallory goes to the phone and dials Skippy’s number)
Skippy: Mallory! You FINALLY called!
Mallory: Yeah, I guess I did.
Skippy: Oh! Are you going to ask me out on a date now?
Skippy: Well why else would you call?
Mallory: Well… I guess I might.
Skippy: Might what?
Mallory: Go on a date with you.
Mallory: Well, we haven’t talked in a long time, and I’m hungry… so yeah!
Skippy: I can’t believe it! What time should I be over?
Mallory: Around seven.
Skippy: Okay. I’ll be there.
Mallory: Bye Skippy!
(Mallory hangs up the phone)
Alex: Did I hear that correctly? YOU are going out on a date with SKIPPY?!
Mallory: Yeah? So?
Alex: After all these years of rejecting him?
Mallory: I never did give him a real chance!
Alex: That’s for sure.
Mallory: I wonder what it will be like.
Alex: He always said he felt completely like himself around you.
Mallory: That’s good. Hopefully he doesn’t spill anything like he usually does.
Alex: With him… you never know.
Mallory: That’s for sure.
[Scene: The family room. Elyse and Steven are talking to Mallory.]
Elyse: You are what?!
Mallory: That’s right!
Elyse: But isn’t it a little soon… after… you know…
Mallory: After what?
Elyse: After Nick…
Mallory: Oh! Well, you have a point.
Steven: I’m not letting you cancel this date!
Mallory: Why not?
Steven: Why would you get him all excited for your date, and then cancel it?
Mallory: You have a point also.
(Jennifer walks into the family room)
Mallory: Hey Jennifer!
Jennifer: Hi Mallory. What’s this I’m hearing about a date with Skippy?
Mallory: It’s true!
Jennifer: And I thought I would get a million dollars before this would happen…
Mallory: Oh Jennifer, it isn’t that shocking.
Elyse: It is too! I mean, if I had a dollar for all the times you rejected him…
Mallory: Okay! Alright! So I was mean in the past. But now I’m giving him a chance.
(The doorbell rings)
Mallory: Ahhh!! Someone hide me!
Steven: Mallory! Control yourself!
(Jennifer answers the door. It’s Skippy… dressed in a tuxedo)
Jennifer: Umm… Hi?
Skippy: Hi Jennifer. Is Mallory home?
Jennifer: She’s in the living room.
Skippy: Mallory! You look gorgeous!
Mallory: Thanks! You look… uhh… nice yourself.
Skippy: I got us a reservation at Quido’s!
(Andy walks into the family room)
Andy: (looks at Skippy) Oh no!! Who died?!
Steven: Haha… silly Andy. You never know what these kids are gonna say.
Skippy: So you think I overdressed, huh Andy? Well there’s no overdressing for Mallory! She’s that good!
Mallory: That’s so sweet. Let’s go!
Skippy: Bye everyone!
(Skippy & Mallory leave)
Elyse: They look so cute together.
Steven: Yes, but I never thought they’d go on a date together…
[Scene: Quido’s. Mallory and Skippy are eating.]
Mallory: So how have you been Skippy? I haven’t seen you in ages.
Skippy: I’m doing fine. We are almost out of college!
Mallory: I know!
Skippy: What about you? How are you holding up?
Mallory: Well, as you know, I dumped Nick. But otherwise I’m okay.
Skippy: Don’t worry about Nick!
Mallory: Why not?
Skippy: You deserve so much better than him. You deserve so much better than me. You deserve the very best!
Mallory: That’s nice of you to say, but I don’t deserve very much.
Skippy: Of course you do! You are perfect!
Mallory: No one is perfect, Skippy!
Skippy: Well you are the closest there is to it.
Mallory: You know what? You really are a great guy.
Skippy: Why thank you for noticing!
Mallory: Yeah… FINALLY noticing. It’s been there since I’ve known you.
Skippy: I can’t believe this is actually happening.
Skippy: This date!
Skippy: Because I’ve tried for SO many years.
Mallory: I know… and I was being mean to you. I’m sorry.
Skippy: It’s okay.
Mallory: I’d really like it if we went on another date.
Skippy: This is so unreal!
Mallory: You’ve always been there for me. Like when we were stuck in the basement. I liked it a lot better than I said.
Skippy: I really liked that too.
Mallory: You are just really great, Skippy.
[Scene: The front door. Skippy is dropping Mallory off at her house.]
Skippy: Well, I guess this is it.
Mallory: Yep! I had the best time ever, Skippy.
Skippy: So did I…
(There is a moment of silence, and then they kiss.)
Mallory: Goodnight, Skippy.
Skippy: Goodnight, Mallory.
(Mallory walks in her house, and finds her whole family standing in awe)
Mallory: What’s wrong with everyone?
Jennifer: We could see what was happening behind that door!
