It's the December holiday season and Rhoda's life is better than it ever has been. She's happily married, her window dressing business is going well, and for the first time in her life she has money in the bank in the amount of $2,000. The only negative in her life is Joe, whose business is not going so well, which is affecting his mood. He doesn't want to bother her about what he sees as his problem, but Rhoda wants to help him in any way she can. That's why she gives him an early Christmas present to the tune of $2,000, money which he would normally refuse but can't because of the way Rhoda gives it to him. However, even with that money, Joe is only able to pay of a small portion of his bills. Beyond Joe deciding if he should make the implied bribe for a job that would set the business for a year, Rhoda tries to make him come to terms with his feelings about what is happening with his business, those feelings which he has thus far kept bottled up inside himself.
