NICKIE FERRANTE: You know, I painted you like that, with the shawl. I wish you could have seen it. Courbet said it was one of my best. I didn't think I could ever part with it, but there was no reason to keep it any longer. I couldn't take money for it because, well, you know... So Courbet told me a young woman came into the gallery and... she liked it. She saw in it what I'd hoped you'd see, so... I told Courbet to give it to her. Because he said she didn't have any money, and not only that, she was... She was... Anyway, I told him to give it to her. Courbet said she wanted it so badly and... So I told him to give it to her. It's the Christmas season and all that. And you know me, holly in my heart. TERRY MCKAY: Darling, don't look at me like that. NICKIE FERRANTE: Why didn't you tell me? If it had to happen to one of us, why did it have to be you? TERRY MCKAY: It was nobody's fault but my own. I was looking up. It was the nearest thing to heaven. You were there. Oh, darling. Don't worry, darling. If you can paint, I can walk. Anything can happen, don't you think? NICKIE FERRANTE: Yes, darling. See also An Affair to Remember video song
