Jarod flashes back to a scene in which Miss Parker sneaks away into a room where they are doing experiments on twin bunnies. She reveals to Jarod that she wants one, but her father won't let her have one.
Mr. Parker calls Miss Parker and invites her to a Christmas Eve party, and tells her not to be late because there will be important people there. In a later scene, we see her all dressed up, smiling, drinking a glass of wine - and then her father calls and cancels. She opens a gift from Jarod - it is a pure white rabbit. Miss Parker is very touched - almost seems to cry as she cuddles the bunny.
