Annie:
Hallie, what was your mother like?

Hallie:
I never met her. She and my Dad split up when I was a baby, maybe even before, I'm not sure. He doesn't really like to talk about her... but I know she was really beautiful.

Annie:
How do you know that?

Hallie:
Because my dad had this old picture of her hidden in his sock drawer and he caught me looking at it all the time so he gave it to me to keep. I'm really thirsty, you sure you don't want to go to the canteen and get something to drink?

Annie:
Will you stop thinking about your stomach at a time like this!

Hallie:
At a time like what?

Annie:
[as she and Hallie step back into the cabin] Don't you realize what's happening? Oh man, this is beyond coincidence, this is beyond imagination! I only have a mother, and you only have a father... You've never seen your Mom, and I've never seen my Dad. You have one old picture of your Mom, I have one old picture of my Dad but at least yours is probably a whole picture. [Hallie races over to her trunk] Mine's a pathetic little thing, ripped right down the middle... What are you rummaging in your trunk for this time?

Hallie:
[she finally faces Annie as she hold a picture to her chest] This. It's the picture of my Mom. And it's ripped too.

Annie:
[knowing] Right down the middle?

Hallie:
[nervously] Right down the middle.

Annie:
[races over to her trunk and takes out a photo and holds it to her chest] This is so freaky. Okay. On the count of three, we'll show them to each other, okay?

Hallie:
Okay.

Annie:
One...

Hallie:
Two...

Annie:
[together with Hallie] Three! [they both gasp as they place the photo together and realize... ]

Hallie:
That's my Dad...

Annie:
That's my Mom... [she hears the bell] That's the lunch bell.

Hallie:
[as she wipes away her tears] I'm not so hungry anymore. So if your Mom is my Mom and my Dad is your Dad... and we're both born on October 11th, then you and I are... like... sisters.

Annie:
Sisters? Hallie, we're like twins!

Hallie:
Oh my god!

Annie:
Oh my god! [they hug]

Nick Parker:
Hal, come here. We have to talk

Annie as Hallie:
Okay shoot.

Nick Parker:
Okay, honey... I want to know what you think about making Meredith part of the family?

Annie as Hallie:
Part of our family?

Nick Parker:
Yeah.

Annie as Hallie:
I think it's an awesome idea. Inspired. Brilliant really.

Nick Parker:
You do? Really? You do?

Annie as Hallie:
Totally, it's like a dream come true. I've always wanted a big sister.

Nick Parker:
Oh... um... Honey, I'm think you're kind of missing the point.

Annie as Hallie:
No, I'm not. You're gonna adopt Meredith. That is so sweet, Dad.

Nick Parker:
No, I'm not going to adopt her. I'm going to MARRY her.

Annie as Hallie:
[leaps from her seat] Marry her? That's insane! How can you marry a woman young enough to be my big sister? [she begins to rant, accidentally yelling in French] Mais tu plaisantes, j'esp?re. Meredith, ce n'est pas une fille pour toi. Mais c'est pas possible, je r?ve. Qu'est-ce qui...

Nick Parker:
Hal, Hal, Hal. Calm down, Hal! [realizes] Are you speaking French?

Annie as Hallie:
I... I learned it at camp. [takes a breath] Ok, I'm sorry. Let's discuss this calmly. Calmly and rationally.

Nick Parker:
Yeah and in English if you don't mind, right?

Annie as Hallie:
Okay.

Nick Parker:
Sweetheart what has gotten into you?

Annie as Hallie:
Nothing, nothing, just... just... Dad, you can't get married! It'll totally ruin completely everything! [she runs from the house]

Nick Parker:
Hal! Hal! Hallie! [he looks to Chessy, who appears at a window]

Chessy, the Parker's Maid:
Don't look at me. I don't know a thing. [she closes the windows]
