ANNIE: No! No please don’t make me take my locket off. I don’t want a new one. (Fingering her locket) This locket, my Mom and Dad left it with me when… when they left me at the Orphanage. And there was a note, too.
(Loudly) They’re coming back for me. And, I know, being here with you for Christmas, I’m real lucky. But… I don’t know how to say it… (She begins to cry) The one thing I want in all the world… more than anything else is to find my mother and father.
(More tears) And to be like other kids, with folks of my own.
