Title: ‘Tis the Season: Still on the list!
Fandom: the Odd Couple

Time Period: Season 1, in December
Summary: It's question and answer time about the list!

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

Oscar, Oscar, Oscar …

Oscar picks up the wool. “Are you making me mittens?”

Felix lunges for the wool, that Oscar holds in the air. “They're not for you!”

Oscar switches hands; Felix watches, nonchalantly. “I'm back on the mitten list aren't I?”

“I don't know.”

“You said I was!”


“When we hurt our backs! You said I was back on the mitten list.”

Felix pauses, considers, remembers. “That's right. I did say you were back on the list.”

“So, are these mine?”

“And if I said yes?”

Oscar takes a moment to look at the ball of wool he's holding and shakes his head. Only Felix would consider hot electric orange a good colour. And colour it was not! In his opinion, anyway.

He swallows.

He takes another look at the wool in his hand.

He swallows again.

“I ...” He looks at Felix. “This colour is horrible!”

Felix pounces, rescues the wool from Oscar. “I win!” He flourishes the wool in the air … and runs. Oscar looks in the direction Felix ran and shrugs, heading for the kitchen and the fridge; he was sure that's where Felix had put the beer.

From the hallway drifts: “You're still on the list!” A slight pause. “... Oscar?” Then: “You're still on the list!”
