It doesn't make sense

[first lines]

Clarinda:
[TV soap opera scene]
It doesn't make sense, I don't understand how something like this happened. I don't know what I'm going to do. This has been my whole life, and now it's gone I don't know what I'm supposed to do. Pendleton Industries is all I've ever known, and now it's all been taken away.
Danica:
When someone sees a weakness in me, I turn that weakness into a strength.
[holds up a gun]

Clarinda:
Danica, you're so strong. I don't think I can do anything like this.
Danica:
You can imagine changing your life by fighting for the deed to the land, Clarinda. Which is possible only if Bartholomew is no longer living.
Bartholomew:
[entering]
You will never get the deed to the land again, I will never allow it. Put down that gun, you silly girl.
Danica:
Watch your step, Bartholomew, Ridge is on the way, and he's still in love with Clarinda. And Jared loves
Roderick:
[entering]
Clarinda, it's true. I'm here for you.
[dramatic beat]

Mimi:
[narrating over snowy landscape]
This is the story of Joy, as told by me, her grandmother. Everybody starts with a some kind of dream of what life will be. Joy dreams started at this metal garage her father ran. My granddaughter had a best friend, Jackie... a half-sister, Peggy... a dog... a father... a mother... who is my daughter... a grandmother, that's me. She made many beautiful things in her world, magic. Some people love to make things. They have the patience and the focus to figure it out with their hands. Joy was one of those people who rejoiced in making things.
Young Joy:
[in her room with her friend]
And *I* open the door to the big green meadow. And *I* go into the forest. And there I conquered many dangers: A wolf and other scary things. And I started to build my very own house, where I would live and make wonderful creations for all the world, to see and have. And maybe for the Prince and Princess who lived across the forest in a castle. See? And they were in love. And maybe they'd invite me over because of the things that I made.
Young Jackie:
You need a handsome prince, that's what you need: a prince.
Young Joy:
No, I don't need a prince, this is a special power, I don't need a prince.

It doesn't make sense, I don't
understand how something
like this happened.
I don't know what
I'm going to do.
This has been my whole life,
and now it's gone
I don't know what
I'm supposed to do.
Pendleton Industries is
all I've ever known,
and now it's all
been taken away.
When someone sees a
weakness in me,
I turn that weakness
into a strength.
Danica, you're so strong.
I don't think I can
do anything like this.
You can imagine
changing your life
by fighting for the
deed to the land, Clarinda.
Which is possible only if
Bartholomew is no longer living.
You will never get the
deed to the land again,
I will never allow it.
Put down that gun,
you silly girl.
Watch your step, Bartholomew,
Ridge is on the way,
and he's still in
love with Clarinda.
And Jared loves me.
Clarinda, it's true.
I'm here for you.
This is the story of Joy,
as told by me,
her grandmother.
Everybody starts with a some
kind of dream of what life will be.
Joy dreams started at this
metal garage her father ran.
My granddaughter had a
best friend, Jackie...
a half-sister, Peggy...
a dog...
a father...
a mother...
who is my daughter...
a grandmother, that's me.
She made many beautiful
things in her world, magic.
Some people love
to make things.
They have the patience and the focus
to figure it out with their hands.
Joy was one of those people
who rejoiced in making things.
And I open the door to
the big green meadow.
And I go into the forest.
And there I conquered
many dangers:
A wolf and other
scary things.
And I started to build
my very own house,
where I would live and make wonderful
creations for all the world,
to see and have.
And maybe for the Prince and Princess who
lived across the forest in a castle.
See? And they were in love.
Maybe they'd invite me over
because of the things that I made.
You need a handsome prince,
that's what you need: a prince.
No, I don't need a prince, this is a
special power, I don't need a prince.
My daughter Terry is separated
and alone in her room
watching soap operas.
You can imagine changing your life
by fighting for the
deed to the land, Clarinda.
- I have something for you.
- Oh, Danica, you're so strong,
I don't think I can ever
do something like this.
I always felt it was
for me to encourage her,
So I said:
You are going to grow up and be
a strong, smart, young woman,
go to school, meet a fine, young man,
have beautiful children of your own,
and you're gonna build wonderful
things that you do in your room.
What happened to
this girl's dreams?
Watch this...
Mother,
I can't find my lanyard for work,
they're not gonna let me through
airport security without it.
Joy, you can't find your lanyard?
- Can I help you?
- No but I...
Honey, listen,
I know life hasn't gone as we
discussed many times, Sweetheart,
and you don't exactly have
your WHOLE life ahead of you,
but you still have
a good portion of it anyway.
"Hope springs eternal."
- Thanks, Mimi.
- Sure.
Mother, look what I DID find.
What is that?
How can you ask what this is?
It's the dog collar I
invented in high school.
Remember Mitzi choked
a couple of times
and so I invented
the dog collar
with a quick release so
a dog would never choke
and I covered it
with reflective tape...
PLUS, it's a flea collar.
I probably wouldn't be
late to this job I'm going to
if you had gotten me
a patent or a lawyer.
