Rose's petition to save a very old tree attracts the ire of Freida Claxton, a misanthropic old woman on whose property the tree lies. At a public hearing, Rose gets angry at Mrs. Claxton and tells her to "drop dead," which she does. Rose blames herself for Mrs. Claxton's death, so the girls decide to pay her one final act of kindness. Written by
