Sophia’s birthday is coming up and she’s dying to know what Dorothy is getting her. But Dorothy won’t tell her because she’s arranged for a huge surprise. She’s flying Sophia’s sister Angela over from Sicily. Angela and Sophia haven’t seen each other in decades. Sophia finds out that Rose knows what the surprise is. She also knows that Rose can’t keep a secret to save her life. So she goes to work on her. But Rose just barely manages to keep the surprise a secret until the party. Dorothy reveals the surprise and Sophia is furious. What Dorothy didn’t know was that the two haven’t spoken to each other since the 50s when the two had a terrible fight.
Sophia was mad at Angela for blabbing that the neighborhood heartthrob kissed Sophia. Angela was mad because she thought Sophia had kissed her husband. But it turned out to be a huge misunderstanding on both sides. A guest at the party overheard the conversation and drunkenly told everyone at the party what had happened with Sophia. And Sophia had lent her fringe shawl to another woman, and the woman was the one who kissed Angela’s husband. The two realize this and make up, finally burying the hatchet after three decades.
