The clip wanting colorful clothing from For Richer or Poorer (1997)
Having fun, Emma?
They're all dressed alike and they're still having a good time.
You didn't all wear the same thing back home?
Back in Missouri, you probably wore many colours.
Perhaps even different styles?
Your Ordnung and so many others have become much less rigid in that area.
But here, we're still very limited.
Our Leadership Council has taken the colour issue under consideration.
They always vote no. They say these are colours. The only colours.
Well, I'm sorry, but I think it's ridiculous.
Black is the timeless classic,
but what's wrong with wearing pastels and soft earth tones?
We wear colour and still maintain group conformity.
Emma, this is the first moment since you arrived that...
Well, the subject seems to bring out a fire in you.
I have to admit, clothes are my passion.
After the Lord, of course.
We all share your feeling. Colour is present in everything else God touches.
So why not what we wear?
The Council meets next week.
Perhaps you could help the elders to change their minds.
No. Me? Next week?
Do you think I could make a good impression on them?
