The Chrismukkah Bar Mitz-vahkkah - 3.10
Summer, Seth, Ryan, and Marissa look for Christmas
trees while Seth talks about the merits of Chrismukkah. Seth tells Ryan to
consider a bar-mitzvah. Marissa tells Summer that she feels bad for Johnny
being alone during the holidays, and she wants to get him a tree. Meanwhile,
Ryan tells Seth that he is sure that Johnny is the last thing on Marissa’s
mind. Seth and Summer think that trouble is on the horizon for Ryan and
The gang delivers the tree to Johnny’s house, where
they can tell that something is up with Johnny and his mom. When Johnny’s
mom takes the tree to put it inside, Johnny tells everyone that he won’t be
able to get his surgery on his knee because his mom’s insurance won’t cover
it, and without that, they won’t be able to afford it.
While Kirsten gets out her Chrismukkah decorations she
observes to Sandy that it is her first Chrismukkah without her dad and her
last one with the boys in the house. Sandy tells her that it will be the
best Chrismukkah ever, and she shouldn’t worry.
Marissa comments to the gang that they need a
Chrismukkah miracle. Seth decides that Ryan should have a Chrismukkah bar
mitz-vahkkah, and all the money that he gets should go towards Johnny’s
surgery. The girls love the idea, and Ryan is stunned when he realizes that
everyone is serious.
Julie sits in her trailer watching TV when Kirsten
stops by to check up on her. Julie reminds her how awful she is doing, and
Kirsten stays with Julie to give her company.
Seth tries to make small talk with Summer’s dad and
fails miserably. When Seth goes upstairs, Summer talks to her dad about how
his wife abandoned them for the holidays, but he says that he’s too busy to
Ryan and Marissa go to visit Johnny and tell him their
idea for the fund-raiser. Johnny says thanks, but no thanks, telling Ryan
that if anyone should understand, it should be him.
Seth tells everyone that Ryan should still have a bar
mitz-vah even if Johnny isn’t open to using the money. Marissa says that
Johnny might change his mind later after he’s had time to think about it,
and so everyone decides that the bar-mitzvah should still be on.
Seth and Ryan present their idea to Sandy and Kirsten.
Sandy thinks that the idea is offensive, since Ryan is not Jewish. Kirsten,
Seth, and Ryan are able to get him to come around though.
Marissa visits Johnny, who acts stand-offish to her. He
tells her that his problem is his problem, and acts private when getting a
phone call. Offended, Marissa goes ahead and leaves.
Ryan flips through Seth’s bar mitz-vah album and Seth
gives him a CD to memorize Hebrew. Ryan has twenty-four hours to prepare to
Kirsten tells Julie about the Chrismukkah bar
mitz-vahkkah as they go to the hospital to pitch their idea. Summer’s dad,
Neil, offers to help them, and they tell him their plan.
Seth watches the video of his bar mitz-vah, feeling
sorry for himself that nobody came. Ryan comes in and tells him how dead he
is going to be tomorrow, but he tells him that he has to go to meet Marissa
Marissa waits for Ryan at the diner when she notices
Johnny standing outside. She sees him giving money to someone, and follows
him outside, where Johnny confesses to her how badly he is doing. Marissa
reassures him that they will get through it together, and when Johnny leans
in to kiss her, she hugs him instead. Ryan, having just arrived, watches
them from a distance before turning around and leaving.
Ryan tells Seth and Sandy that he is through helping
Johnny out, and he doesn’t want to do the bar mitz-vah after all. He goes
outside, and Kirsten comes inside and tells Seth and Sandy that the
fundraiser has been cleared and they are good to go.
Summer and Neil decorate their Christmas tree and
Summer asks why her mother left when she was younger. Neil tells her that
she just didn’t like it there, and the two have a sweet conversation about
how they have done alright together without her. Summer says that sometimes
she misses her mom. Neil leaves for hospital rounds just as Seth arrives.
Seth hugs Summer, who tells him what a help he is to her.
Johnny meets Marissa at the diner, and Marissa tells
him that she wants to discuss last night. The two decide to start over, and
when Marissa inquires about the man Johnny was meeting last night, Johnny
tells her to not ask questions that she doesn’t want answers to.
Sandy meets with Ryan and asks him to think of everyone
else and set aside his problems until after the bar mitz-vah. Ryan comments
that it would require a lot of swallowing of pride, but Sandy tells him that
he should be the adult in the situation.
Kirsten visits Julie and tells her that she needs to
tell Marissa the truth and spend the holidays together. Julie tells Kirsten
that she will call her that night.
Marissa visits Ryan and tells him about what happened
with Johnny. She tells him that she is just worried about him, and doesn’t
have feelings for him. She confides in Ryan that she thinks Johnny is up to
something dangerous, and Ryan promises to talk to him.
Ryan goes to visit Johnny, and his mom tells him that
she doesn’t know what Johnny would do without all of them. Ryan goes to
Johnny’s room and begins to snoop when he hears Johnny getting out of the
shower. Fortunately, Johnny doesn’t catch him. Ryan asks Johnny to come to
his bar mitz-vah, and Johnny finally agrees after enough pressure. Ryan
leaves to give Johnny some time to get changed, and Johnny goes and looks at
one of his guns.
At Ryan’s bar mitz-vahkkah, Summer and Seth comment on
the high turnout, and Summer comments on how sad it is that nobody came to
Seth’s. Sandy calls everyone over for the family photo, and as they are
going to do that, Ryan asks Marissa to not let Johnny out of her sight.
Julie stops by Neil’s and asks to see Marissa. Neil
tells her that Marissa is gone, but offers her a drink, which she takes him
up on. Neil sees through Julie’s lies, and when he confesses that he might
be getting a divorce, Julie tells him she lives in a trailer park. She asks
him to go to the bar mitz-vahkkah with her.
The Cohens get their photos taken, and Marissa is
invited to join them. While she goes to be in the picture, Johnny slips
away, and she cannot find him. Sandy goes on stage to introduce Ryan, while
Marissa fills Ryan in on the situation and asks Seth to cover for him on
stage. Seth does that while Ryan goes outside to chase down Johnny.
Ryan gets outside just in time to see Johnny driving
away. Ryan goes after him.
Back inside, Seth tells the audience about the origins
of Chrismukkah, and calls Summer on stage to help tell the story of
Hanukkah. Summer drags Marissa up with her.
Ryan follows Johnny to a mini-mart and sees him putting
a gun in his pants. Unfortunately, Ryan is stuck at a traffic light for the
time being. Johnny goes inside and starts to go towards the counter to rob
the cashier (who senses something is up and is going for his gun as well).
Ryan comes in just in time and buys cigarettes and a lottery ticket. He
pulls Johnny aside and tells him that if Ryan is the person who can
understand most, Johnny should take it from him—sometimes, you have to let
the rich people help you. Johnny agrees to do that, and they see cops coming
in to make purchases—Johnny would have been caught if Ryan hadn’t stopped
him. Johnny and Ryan head out.
Back at the bar mitz-vahkkuh, Seth and Sandy sing for
everyone. Marissa and Summer get the audience singing “Deck the Halls”
instead. Ryan shows up and gives a speech about celebrating human kindness.
Kirsten and Sandy hug Ryan afterwards and tell him how
proud they are. Seth congratulates Ryan on being a man and Summer drags Seth
out on the dance floor for their dance that she’s owed him since skipping
out on his bar mitz-vah five years ago.
Marissa and Johnny agree to be friends. The two and
Ryan join Seth and Summer to dance.
Summer goes and sees Julie and Neil arriving. She gets
Neil and Julie to join them in their dance, and Sandy and Kirsten comment
from a distance that it is the best Chrismukkah ever.
