Angie: Ah, jeez.
Jesse: Ho, ho, ho.
Angie: Ho, ho, ho. What are you doing here?
Jesse: Well, you've been working hard. I'm working hard. I miss you.
Angie: Well, I'll be home in a few hours.
Jesse: Yeah, home. Kind of heavy these days, you know? You need to lighten up, take a break. Come here, Mrs. Claus. My sleigh is double-parked on the roof.
Tad: It's more like the leaning tower of pizza. You know they've got a building in Italy that's covered with cheese?
Kathy: Can I go get the ornaments?
Tad: Yeah, go ahead. They're in the basement, as if you don't already know. Go ahead. Be careful on the stairs and don't break anything. Hey. How was your nap? I guess you needed one after all that tossing and turning last night, huh? Yeah, I know. It's kind of crooked, but you give me half a tick, I'll fix it.
Krystal: Get rid of it. Now.
David: I was just about to unveil it. You came at the right time.
Amanda: Why are you doing it and not J.R.?
David: J.R. couldn't decide on a stone, and I didn't think it was right to make Babe wait any longer, so I ordered one. We're not going to let you down, Babe. We're going to protect your little angel. We're going to save Little Adam from the Chandlers.
Adam: Special delivery.
Erica: What a -- what a nice, early Christmas present.
Adam: Yes, well, it's nothing compared to the gift I've already given you. My blood saved your life.
Erica: Are you ever going to stop reminding me?
Adam: Yes. When you've paid me back.
Erica: You can play the -- unbelievable, Adam. What is it you want? An arm, a leg? Come on. Why don't you just tell me? Tell me, what kind of outrageous payback do you expect?
Adam: Erica. Help me hold on to my son.
Babe's voice: Do you want to open a present? I have one for you.
J.R.'s voice: Ok, sure. I -- I have one for you, too.
Babe's voice: You first.
J.R.: Hey, what's up, buddy?
Little Adam: Mommy's home.
Greenlee: I asked if I could do this over the phone, but they said as a potential witness, I had to come in, so --
Man: Hello, I'm Judge Mitchell. No need to get up. This is an informal conference of extended emergency treatment for the patient Annie Lavery. In other words, a review of Mrs. Lavery's mental state to determine whether her trial should be put on hold while she's committed to a psychiatric institution for treatment.
Annie: No. No!
Adam: I'd like to think that once J.R.'s had time to mourn Babe and -- things would get back to normal between us, but normal is rather strange. It's a lot of goading and wrangling going on, but underneath it all is a love and respect that keeps us connected.
Erica: I'm feeling kind of disconnected from my children lately, too, especially Kendall. I mean, there are times in the middle of the night, I wake up, and my heart is racing. I can hardly catch my breath. I'm so worried about her. I'm so afraid that she's just not going to make it this time, but fear is a waste of time, because Kendall will come back to us just like J.R. will come back to you.
Adam: Yes, yes, let's hope.
Erica: It's so funny. I mean, I remember when Bianca grew up and went off on her own. I was so sure that I could stop worrying about her, that I would stop picking up the phone just to hear her voice and stop wondering where she was and what she was up to and that I could just let go.
Adam: Oh, never going to happen.
J.R.: Well, it's addressed to you, but it doesn't say who sent it.
Little Adam: Mommy sent it.
J.R.: All right, I need you to listen real close. Your mama's sending you lots of loves and hugs and kisses and all that for Christmas, but she can't come back.
Amanda: I told you. I'll take down J.R. for the six million bucks, but I want to do it my way, so just stop coaching me.
David: I'm simply reminding you what this is all about. Little Adam, protecting him, and the future that Babe wanted him to have. If my grandson stays in that Chandler house of horrors, he doesn't stand a chance.
Amanda: You honestly think he'd be better off with you?
David: You're damn right I do. I would never turn him into a Chandler clone the way Adam did with J.R. or the way J.R. would do with his son; and you, of all people, should know how crucial it is to protect a child from a damaged parent.
Amanda: Don't go there.
David: Why not? Trevor saved you, right? Well, now's your chance to do the same, to help a little boy who needs you just as much as you needed your dad.
Older Little Adam: Merry Christmas, Mom. I miss you so much. But guess what? I got into Stanford Medical School. I'm going into Cardiology, just like my granddad.
Tad: Baby. It's Christmas.
Krystal: I don't care.
Tad: Look, the fact is you're just exhausted. You need to get some rest. It'll be ok.
Kathy: Look what I found.
Krystal: Kathy. Sweetheart, give that to me.
Kathy: I want to hang it on the tree.
Krystal: I said give it to me.
Tad: Easy. Honey. Kathy? Baby?
Krystal: I gave this to Babe. We used to decorate the tree together, ever since she was a little girl. And now, she's gone, and I can't -- I can't -- I can't have Christmas without her. I --
Tad: Listen. If it was just you and me, I'd scrap the whole thing in a minute. You know I would. But now we've got Jenny, hmm? We've got Kathy to think about. Christmas is for children. We're parents. We've got to keep the spirit alive for them.
Krystal: I can't do it, Tad. I got to get out of here.
Tad: What are you talking about, "Get out of here"?
Krystal: I --
Tad: Honey, you're not dressed.
Krystal: I've got to get some air. I -- I don't care --
Tad: Listen, shouldn't we get somebody to watch the girls? I'll go with you.
Krystal: I want to be alone, Tad, please.
Ryan: Annie, Annie, it's ok. Everything is ok.
Annie: Ryan, please. Please, I'm begging you. Help me, please.
Judge Mitchell: Mrs. Lavery, please settle down so we can talk.
Annie: Now you want to talk? Now you want to talk? You never cared about anything I said before, Dad. You don't love me. You don't listen to me. That's why you pretended to be deaf, so you could ignore me. Everybody ignored me. You, Mom, her. All I was, everything I wanted, I didn't matter. It's like I didn't exist, but I do exist, damn it! I exist, and I know you, Greenlee. I will get to you. I swear I am ready for you this time, and I will rip your heart out with my hands!
Ryan: Ok, ok!
Judge Mitchell: I've seen enough.
Ryan: Ok, ok, ok, ok.
Annie: I will. I swear that's a promise. I will get to you.
Judge Mitchell: Take her back to her room.
Annie: Don't be long, Ryan. I'll be waiting for you in the honeymoon suite.
Amanda: I thought I'd swing by and see if Little A got my gift.
J.R.: You sent the angel?
Amanda: Yeah, didn't you read the card?
J.R.: I didn't see any card. He opened the box himself. He thinks that Babe sent it. He thinks that she's coming home.
Amanda: Oh, my God. J.R., I am so sorry.
J.R.: He's looking for his mom.
Amanda: Hey, there. Hi, do you remember me? I'm Amanda. I'm glad you got the ornament. Your daddy said that you thought your mom sent it, and you know what? In a way, she did. Because when I bought that, I was thinking about your mom and how much I wish I could see her again. But I know I can't. Even though your mom's not here with us right now, she is looking down at us from heaven with all the other angels, and I thought you could put that on the tree, and every time you look at it, you'll remember, too.
Little Adam: Let's put it on top so Mama can see.
Man: After several sessions with Mrs. Lavery, it's clear she has a distorted view of reality. She's delusional, paranoid, impulsive, and has no sense of relational boundaries, all of which are connected to an intense fear of abandonment. The current psychotic break was triggered by an atypical stressor, namely the break-up of Mrs. Lavery's marriage and the custody loss of her daughter.
Judge Mitchell: What is your recommendation?
Doctor: Mrs. Lavery is a danger to herself and, as we've seen, a danger to others. Therefore, I recommend she be committed to a mental health facility for further evaluation and treatment.
Judge Mitchell: Thank you. We've heard a medical opinion, and now I'd like to hear from someone who has a personal relationship with Mrs. Lavery, her husband. Please describe your wife's behavior the night of the arrest.
Ryan: Ahem. Ok, um, well, she came to the party dressed in her wedding gown, and it was just splattered with blood. And it seemed -- it seemed like she had no idea at all that -- that she had just stabbed somebody. And I just remember thinking to myself that I had no idea who this person was. I didn't recognize her at all. I mean, how could she do so such incredibly horrible things? And I'm, um -- I mean, I'm not just talking only about Erica. She's -- she's killed people. She killed Di Henry. Before that, she killed her brother. She's done a lot of horrible things, and the list is very long. She kidnapped our child, her own child. She dragged her on a plane, and she -- and she took her far away from home, and -- and Emma almost died, and -- it's -- it's a very -- it's a very long list, and the point is -- is that, um -- it's like that she doesn't have any aware -- she doesn't have any -- none of it matters to her. Her -- her friends, her job, her daughter, none of it matters. All that matters to her, all she wants right now, what she's focused on is um -- is holding on to me. And it's very sad, and I just really hope -- I hope that she gets the help that she needs.
Judge Mitchell: Thank you, Mr. Lavery. We'll now hear from Mrs. Lavery's attorney.
Lawyer: Your honor, given everything we've seen here today, I have to agree with Dr. Richards' recommendation. Mrs. Lavery should be committed.
Judge Mitchell: I don't see a need for extended deliberation. I find the patient, Annie Lavery, severely mentally disabled and in need of continued, involuntary treatment. I'll issue a certification so she can be transferred to a mental-health facility. Thank you all. You're free to go.
Annie: It's our wedding night, just us, alone. She is not allowed. She will not get me. Never, never, never! She will not get me! Tell that bitch to watch her back.
Adam: Where are you going to live when you leave here? You -- you can't go back to the Yacht Club. No, now they've repaired it, but it's -- it's no place to recuperate. After the ordeal you've been through? No. I insist you come to the mansion.
Erica: You know, Adam, that is such a generous offer. Thank you. It's very kind of you, but the truth is I have already been offered another lovely place to stay, and I accepted.
Adam: Oh, really? Well, who's the lucky stiff that gets to shack up with Erica Kane?
Erica: Oh, well, aren't you nosey? Or should I say jealous?
Adam: I'm sure the turndown service won't be as personal as mine. You, get some rest.
Erica: Adam? No get-well kiss? Adam. Thank you for the gift and for the offer.
Angie: We've got gingerbread, candy canes, got egg nog --
Jesse: And we've got this little fellow. Kind of reminded me of you, Tad. Check him out. It's how you move.
Angie: Hey, Tad, do that thing you do like that.
Jesse: Whoa, what's going on over here, Mr. Bah Humbug? Didn't you invite us over to help you decorate that crooked-ass Christmas tree. What's up with that?
Tad: I'm sorry. I guess my party's kind of a bust. Kathy's in her room, and she won't come out. Krystal would just as soon we cancel Christmas altogether because of Babe.
Angie: Uh, listen. I'll -- I'll go up and talk to Krystal. Is she upstairs?
Tad: No, see, that's just it. I have no idea. She ran out of here, got in her car, and took off.
Angie: I'm going to see if I can track her down.
[Krystal sniffles as she approaches Babe's gravesite]
David: Krystal, you need to be inside where it's warm. Let me take you home.
Krystal: I don't want to go back there. I don't want anything. I don't want that tree. I don't want ornaments. I don't want Christmas. I don't want anything. I just -- I want Babe.
David: I know.
Krystal: She shouldn't be here! She shouldn't be here. She should be with us, with her family. I need her. I need my Babe.
David: It's all right. It's ok.
Krystal: I need my Babe.
David: It's all right. It's ok. It's all right. I'm here. I understand. It's all right. I'm going to take care of you, ok? Ok? Come here, come here. Ok, baby.
Greenlee: I'm sorry I came. It made everything worse.
Ryan: I'm going to head home and see Emma. The holidays are coming, and I haven't really had a chance to do anything for her, you know? Not even -- not even get a tree.
Greenlee: Hi, Dad, hi.
Jack: Hi. How are you?
Greenlee: I'm just tired. I'm -- I'm, um, going to go see Kendall on my way out of here. How about you?
Jack: Ok. What's going on?
Greenlee: Nothing. I'm fine.
Jack: It's Ryan, isn't it? What did he do to you?
Greenlee: He didn't do anything to me. He's dealing with a very sick wife and a young daughter, and he's trying to do the right thing for everyone, and it's really hard, so just leave him alone.
Amanda: Should we blow a kiss to the angel and to your mommy up in heaven? Yeah? Ok, ready? One, two, three.
Amanda: Good job.
J.R.: How about a kiss for Daddy? Aw, come here.
J.R.: You ready for those cookies, A? All right, go get them. Thank you for the angel and thank you for helping my son.
Amanda: I can't help it. Falling in love with the little guy.
Adam: Give me a break. You're, uh, you're falling in love with my grandson's inheritance, which is untouchable, by the way, so don't waste your time.
J.R.: All right, just back off. Amanda was great with Little Adam just now.
Adam: Yeah? Check her -- check her pockets. She probably stole his allowance.
Amanda: I'm going to go get some of those cookies.
J.R.: Ok. What is your problem?
Adam: Son, I know you're going through a very difficult time right now. Very difficult, and you need some people around you to -- to help you through it, but that gold digger isn't one of them.
J.R.: All right. I moved back into this house for one reason. That's Little Adam. So keep your opinions to yourself and stay the hell out of my life.
Tad: You know, it's my first Christmas with Kathy as her new daddy. I just wanted it to be perfect, you know? All of us together and happy.
Tad: I got it. So much for that. Turned out I suck as a father and a husband.
Jesse: Oh, come on.
Tad: Krystal's in such pain, I can't do anything to help her.
Jesse: She just needs time, man.
Tad: Well, I hope you're right. The fact is not too long ago, I wanted to scrap Christmas myself.
Jesse: Mm-hmm. I mean it. I'm serious. I threw all the ornaments in the garbage. I didn't want to buy a tree. I mean, why -- why bother? My boys were grown up, and my little girl was missing. I didn't see the point. But Dixie did, you know? She came over, she dug everything out of the garbage, she -- she spent hours on doing those stupid lights, and she henpecked me till I got off the sofa to help her, you know? I'm not saying it took away the pain, but, you know, going through the motions, having that ritual with somebody you love, it does make a difference.
Jesse: You tell that to Krystal?
Tad: What do you mean "tell her"? I was trying to prove it to her. It's what tonight was all about. She just keeps pushing me away. Really awful thing is now I'm starting to lose patience with her, you know? I'm starting to resent her.
Jesse: Oh, come on.
Tad: No, I mean it. I am. When I lost Dixie, I wanted to die myself, you know? But then Jenny and Kathy came along, and I got my life back. I'm not saying you -- that you ever forget. You don't. Ever. But you do -- you go on with your life. You have to. For the people who, you know, who love you, who need you, for your family. I haven't had that in so long, you know, a sense of home. I want it more than anything. Do anything to keep it, you know, for my sake and -- and the girls'. So does that make me a selfish son of a bitch, or what?
Jesse: No. Man, come on. You are a man with a complicated family. Welcome to the club. It's strange.
Tad: Huh. Baby, to the perfect Christmas.
Jesse: To the perfect Christmas.
David: That should warm you up. So why don't you try and get some sleep, ok?
Krystal: Oh, that doesn't work. Every time I close my eyes, the thoughts come, and then tears come.
David: Well, then, I have the perfect remedy, known to work wonders. Warm milk. What do you say?
Krystal: At this point I'll try anything.
David: Good. I made some for you right over here.
[David puts a pill in Krystal's drink]
[Knock on door]
Krystal: That could be Tad. He can't know that I'm here.
David: Don't worry. I'm going to handle this, ok? It's ok. Relax.
Angie: Where's Krystal?
Greenlee: So that's it. Ryan has to focus on his kids. Emma and Spike are both missing their mothers, and he has to be there for them now more than ever.
Jack: Ok, I know all about Ryan. So what about you?
Greenlee: Do I want to be with Ryan? Of course. But it would never work. I know we're doing the right thing, but why does it feel so wrong?
Jack: Huh, well, that's -- that's a pretty simple answer there. It's because you can't just turn your feelings off.
Greenlee: At Annie's review, you know, he was struggling so much, and I just wanted to put my arms around him and tell him that everything was going to be ok, but I can't. We can't.
Jack: You made a very tough decision there. A very selfless one. Hey, makes your father very proud. Look, maybe you and Ryan can't be together, but with some work, could still be friends.
Corrina: Thank you.
Ryan: All right.
Corrina: Bye, Emma.
Ryan: See you later.
Emma: Where did you go?
Ryan: I went to a meeting about Mommy.
Emma: Is she coming home?
Ryan: No, not -- not yet. Remember we talked about the fact that she's going to stay in the hospital to get all the help that she needs to get better, but you don't have to worry, because the hospital is taking such good care of her. They really are. Wow, that looks nice. Look at you. Looks so good. Hey. Oh, Emma, I really -- I really wish you -- you weren't crying.
Emma: I'm not crying. I'm saying a prayer.
Ryan: Oh. For what?
Emma: A miracle, so Mommy will come home for Christmas.
Amanda: Well, is it safe to come back in?
J.R.: Yeah, it looks like my dad took the hint and took off. I'm sorry about that.
Amanda: Well, the cookies made up for it. Hey, you. Want to finish decorating the tree? Yeah?
J.R.: Oh, no. Let's let the staff take care of that.
Amanda: Oh, come on. That's the best part about Christmas. Come on, come on, come on, Daddy. Say, "Daddy, please."
Little Adam: Please.
J.R.: All right. As long as I get to do the tinsel.
Amanda: Oh! Go get him, go get him!
Amanda: Pretty great, huh?
J.R: Yeah. Babe would've definitely given it a big thumbs-up. Yeah, ok, let's put that up there. Just like that, right there. Ok.
David: Krystal is not here.
Angie: And you have no idea where she might be?
David: Why don't you ask her husband? And while you're at it, why don't you tell Inspector Idiot to stop losing his wife. Look, if you're here because of what you saw at the hospital, you can forget it, ok? It meant nothing.
Angie: You were -- come off of it. You were kissing Krystal.
David: She was kissing me. Because she's having a rough time. And I haven't seen her since, so you can leave now.
Jack: This is for you. The other eleven were on back order.
Erica: It's absolutely lovely, Jack. Thank you.
Jack: You're welcome. So, um, how you feeling?
Erica: Oh, well, I'm feeling absolutely wonderful. I -- I feel like I'm going to be discharged any day now.
Jack: Good, good. Then that's -- that's good news.
Erica: Uh-huh. Well, there's also bad news. I had my heart set on this beautiful new penthouse, but the construction's been delayed on it because of the tornado damage --
Erica: So, uh --
Jack: So -- so you'll move in with me.
Erica: Come live with you?
Jack: Sure, you said the Yacht Club is not an option, and you shouldn't be alone after surgery.
Erica: Well, what about Carmen? Have you two had a falling out?
Jack: Carmen and I are fine.
Erica: But you didn't bring her to the fundraiser. And Adam implied --
Jack: Did he? This isn't about Carmen. This is about you and your needing a place to stay. Erica, I've got a lot of empty bedrooms in that house now. Tell you what. Why don't you look at it as a friend doing a favor for a friend?
Erica: That's very generous of you, but you're too late, because Adam already offered me the opportunity to live at the mansion again.
Jack: You're kidding, right?
Erica: No, he came by a little earlier, and he brought this beautiful amaryllis, and, uh, the subject came up that I was going to be discharged very quickly, and right away, he just said, you know, "Come back and live in the mansion with me," so I think I will be very comfortable there, actually, because if you stop and think about it, I really have spent more time living there than I ever did living in the house that we shared.
Jack: Hmm. Well, I am glad to see you're doing so well.
Erica: Thank you.
Erica: Adam, hi. You know what, Adam? You just seemed so lonely when you were here that I've decided that I -- I can come live at the mansion after all.
Adam: I'd be thrilled to have you.
Erica: I knew you would be.
[Erica throws Jack's rose in the trash can]
Tad: Thanks for coming over. I appreciate it.
Jesse: It's not a problem, brother, you know, anytime. How do I look?
Tad: You look beautiful, baby.
Jesse: Listen. Don't worry about Krystal. Mrs. Claus will bring her home.
Tad: Ho. Ho ho, ho.
Jesse: Ho ho.
Tad: Hey! That's good work, sunshine. It's terrific. Isn't that the special family ornament I gave you?
Kathy: Does everyone in the family have a special ornament?
Tad: We try.
Tad: Krystal, honey, look, it's me. Um, do me a favor. Just call me as soon as you get this. Or -- or better yet, just -- just come home.
Krystal: Who was it?
David: Angie. She was looking for you.
Krystal: You didn't tell her I was here?
David: Of course not. I got rid of her.
Krystal: What am I going to do? I can't stay here. I can't go home.
David: You're going to relax.
David: I'm going to help you, ok? We're going to do some breathing exercises, some meditation, but first, I want you to sit down right here, ok? That's it. And I want you to drink some of this.
Amanda: Bye, buddy.
Little Adam: Bye.
Amanda: Aw. Aw, you know what? You did such a good job decorating that tree, I'm going to come back and put some presents under it, all right?
J.R.: Thank you.
J.R.: Come here, come here, you. Come here, you.
[J.R. makes noises]
Little Adam: Yeah, a little --
J.R.: Yeah? I made a ring, look. Look at that.
Adam: As you go about reeling in my son, I want you to think about Babe, her untimely death. I'd hate to see that happen to you.
[Adam holds the front door open]
Adam: Happy holidays.
Greenlee: I'm here as a friend and, uh, delivery person.
Greenlee: You said you hadn't had a chance to do anything for Emma's Christmas yet, so -- anyway, enjoy it.
Ryan: Can I, at least, reimburse you for this?
Greenlee: No. But tips are welcome.
Orderly: Ms. Lavery. You have a visitor.
Aidan: Hey, Annie. How are you feeling?
Annie: Aidan. Thank God you came. I need -- I need --
Aidan: What, Annie? What is it?
Annie: Come closer.
