Woman of the Year (1942)

In director George Stevens' romantic comedy-drama (the first of nine films starring Tracy and Hepburn together):

  • international political columnist and baseball-illiterate Tess Harding's (Katharine Hepburn) first baseball game-date with fellow NY sportswriter Sam Craig (Spencer Tracy) during which he had to explain the "men's only" game and its rules
  • her disastrous failed attempt to cook a decent breakfast and be a traditionally-domesticated housewife for him - she fought with the kitchen appliances, watched toast pop out of the toaster onto the floor, boiled coffee over, and overfilled the waffle griddle with batter as he watched in amazement
