Storyline

After her youngest daughter's funeral, Mildred concentrates on opening her new restaurant. Opening night is a smashing success and even Veda seems to approve. It's all a little too busy for a first night but friends come to the rescue. When Monty Beragon shows up, she learns that he is quite a well-known personality. Veda is quite taken with him. Monty recommends a new music teacher for Veda and Mildred decides to start saving to buy her a proper piano. With the repeal of prohibition, neighbor Lucy suggests that Mildred opens a bar in the restaurant. Veda, not happy with the wristwatch her mother gave her for Christmas, rebels. Mildred blames Monty for turning Veda against her. Written by garykmcd

Mildred Pierce: All I've ever been to you is a piece of tail. You're ashamed of me! It's no surprise. I've known it all along! Why don't you just admit it, Monty? You look down on me because I work!
