Brooke: Oh, my gosh. What are you two doing? Put those pencils down. It's Christmas Eve.
Eric: I know. We promised Bill we'd have three more designs by the end of the day.
Brooke: Okay. But then just promise me you're going to get ready to celebrate.
Ridge: Already started. Dad's eggnog.
Brooke: Oh, not your eggnog. This design.
Eric: Oh, uh, thank you.
Bill: Isn't it nice working with just a few people milling around?
Katie: We certainly are getting a lot done.
Bill: Well, if you think this is good, wait till tomorrow. It'll be completely dead.
Katie: You want to work on Christmas?
Bill: Well, uh, in the past, it has been my favorite day to kind of get ahead.
Katie: Well, say good-bye to Christmas past, "Mr. Scrooge," and say hello to Christmas present. You're my husband, and I want to spend Christmas with you.
Bill: Hmm. Well, if you are my sexy ghost from Christmas future, I'm liking my future a whole lot.
Bill: Now what is on my beautiful wife's Christmas list this year? Another beautiful diamond necklace or a bracelet or--
Katie: I don't need any more jewelry. I'm sorry. (Clears throat) I-I know I'm being ungrateful. It's just that, uh, I-I'm sure whatever you give me will be beautiful and I will treasure it just like I treasure everything. I just don't need those kinds of gifts.
Bill: Hey, what's going on with you?
Katie: (Sighs) Oh, I'm being so silly. I'm just disappointed, that's all.
Bill: In me?
Katie: No, no. In me. (Sniffles) Do you know what I want for Christmas?
Bill: Tell me.
Katie: (Sighs) I want you to give Forrester Creations back to the Forresters.
Pam: My peanut butter fudge always goes so fast. You better try some before it's gone.
Jackie: Oh, good.
Pam: Oh, wait.
Pam: What's that?
Pam: I-I-I had you marked down for the spinach and feta turnovers, Bridget.
Pam: I baked plenty of things, so--
Bridget: O-okay, Pam, I just made some brownies, but I have appetizers in the car. I'll go get them in just a second, all right?
Bridget: Are--are the lights up yet? Are they ready?
Owen: Yep, just about.
Bridget: Okay. That's good.
Nick: Hey. Any sign of Sandy?
Bridget: No, and I left some more messages. I haven't heard back from her. What if she doesn't come, Nick?
Sandy: What are you wearing?
Whip: It's from Mom. Shut up.
Sandy: Aunt Joy. She always did have great taste.
Whip: Yeah, well, I just saw her. She insisted that I put it on. Makes the woman happy, okay?
Whip: Anyway, I told her, uh, I told her that you were gonna stop by for Christmas dinner. She really wants to see you.
Sandy: Why did you tell her that?
Whip: You got other plans?
Sandy: Okay. Thank you for the invitation. I'll think about it.
Whip: (Sighs) All right, so you ready to go? You're not going?
Sandy: I'm sorry.
Whip: Come on. Look, I don't know what caused you to close off from the entire world or why you stopped communicating with your favorite cousin, but it's a party. Come on, Aggie. Let's just put it aside and just come with me. Please? Come on. It's Christmas Eve. It'll be fun.
Whip: Everybody's expecting you.
Sandy: I'm not feeling all Christmassy this year, okay? I'm just not.
Whip: Well, you know what? You need to not think about yourself. Think about Nick and Bridget. If you're not there, it's-- it's kind of like their baby isn't there.
Sandy: I can't do it. I'm sorry. I don't want to celebrate Christmas, not this year.
Brooke: Donna must be excited to have everybody come over tomorrow night.
Eric: Yeah, she is.
Brooke: Is there anything we can do to help?
Eric: Just keep Bill Spencer away.
Brooke: Oh, we've taken care of that. Mm. (Sighs) I just wish it didn't have to keep Katie away, too.
Bill: Give Forrester Creations back?
Bill: Katie, I would do--
Katie: My family is celebrating without me, Bill. I--they-- they hate you so much that I'm told to keep you away.
Bill: Well, I don't blame them. I would hate me, too.
Katie: No, I-I don't want to blame anyone, not on Christmas. Listen, don't get me wrong. I have loved the last few weeks. I-I have relished every moment being C.E.O., but none of it's worth it if I can't bring my husband to Christmas dinner. (Sighs) I mean, get-- get me out of this office. Let Eric come back in here. Give Ridge his chance. I don't care about any of it. I just want my family back. Let's fix this. Please.
Jackie: Put it in.
Owen: Fingers crossed.
Jackie: Put it in. Put it in. Yes! Yes, you did it!
Owen: Ah! There we go.
Jackie: It's beautiful. Beautiful.
Owen: There we go.
Whip: Hey, guys. Everything looks great.
Bridget: Oh, hey, nice sweater.
Whip: Oh, thank you. Um, listen, I stopped by, uh, Sandy's to see if she needed a ride to the party.
Whip: But, um, I don't think she's coming.
Bridget: Did she say why?
Whip: Just not in the mood. That's all.
Bridget: Let's go.
Nick: Where are we going?
Bridget: To see Sandy. She does not need to be alone on Christmas Eve. Come on.
Katie: Just--just think of the Christmas gift. We could--we could show up on--on Ericís doorstep...
Katie: With the papers and--
Bill: (Sighs) Obviously, I, um, I see how difficult this is on you. But the fact is that they got their Christmas gift early when I bought this drowning company, and we resuscitated it. (Sighs) I hate that this is so hard on you. But your family's behavior is petty. This is all new for them. It will get better. They will get better. But for right now, we have a meeting, an important meeting, and I need to know that you are ready to start thinking like a C.E.O. If not, I have to be prepared to make excuses for you.
Katie: No, you're right. I'm fine.
Bill: Are you sure? George is an important member of the Spencer board--
Katie: I'm fine. I'm just trying to do the right thing. Sometimes it's hard to figure out what that is.
Bill: That's why I'm here-- to steer you in the right direction.
Eric: So you want to flip a coin to see who has to take these designs into Bill?
Ridge: Why don't we just e-mail them? It will just be a minute.
Eric: Okay, good. Good idea. You scan. I'll pour. Brooke, would you like an eggnog?
Brooke: Sure. Do you really think this will work?
Eric: It has to, Brooke. It absolutely has to.
(Knock on door)
Sandy: Whip, you are nothing if not persistent.
Sandy: Why can't you just-- oh. Um... (Chuckles)
Bridget: May we come in?
Sandy: Uh, okay, sure. Um, excuse the mess. I was just getting ready to clean up.
Bridget: Um, I'm sorry to stop by unannounced. But, um, I got really nervous when you didn't return my calls.
Sandy: Oh, I'm sorry. You know, I've been meaning to recharge my cell phone. The darn batteries-- they just don't last very long.
Bridget: Right. Um, why don't you come to Jackie M. tonight? It would mean so much to us.
Sandy: I-I totally-- I really appreciate the offer, but I just started working there. I don't really know anyone.
Nick: Well, this is a good way to get to know people.
Sandy: Yeah, the truth is, I-- (sighs) I don't know. I don't really feel like celebrating Christmas. You know, the holidays get me down. And being around a bunch of people who are celebrating and happy just doesn't sound good to me.
Bridget: See, that's exactly why we want to have this party. We want to have a good time, but, Sandy, there are a lot of people that feel the same way you do.
Nick: You know, I have an employee who's spending her first Christmas without her mother because her mother died last month. And I have another employee who's not gonna spend Christmas with her daughter 'cause she's away at college and she can't afford to fly her home and another employee who just moved here from across the country and knows absolutely no one. And I'm sure none of them feel like celebrating Christmas 'cause they all feel alone. But, you see, that's where I come in. That's my job, and that's Bridgetís job, and now I hope you think it's your job, because we want to create something, you know, a new tradition at Jackie M. Where it's about family and friends. And I want you to know that you're always-- well, we want you to always be a part of that. So what do you say, huh? Will you come join us?
Jackie: Hey, you made it. I'm so glad to see you. Oh, I love your ears.
Owen: Good to see you.
Jackie: Not as good as our antlers.
Owen and Jackie: (Laugh)
Jackie: Oh, I was hoping that Nick and Bridget would be back by now.
Owen: Well, that must be good news. At least we can assume that Sandy let them in, right?
Whip: Mm, it doesn't mean they got through to her.
Sandy: Do you know what Nick's doing?
Bridget: You know, I-I-I have no idea. He just said he was getting something from the car.
Bridget: Oh, I do know.
(Guitar playing continues)
(Playing "Jingle Bells")
Nick: Driving across town /one important goal in sight /to take away the frown /on our surrogate's face /tonight /nowhere else to go /I hope that she will see /at Jackie M. Designs /we are one big family /oh, Sandy, Sandy /won't you come with us? /Won't you?
You'll have lots of fun /come along now /don't argue /oh, Sandy, Sandy /come with us, won't you? /Our party won't be any fun /if you are not there, too!
Nick: No applause?
Bridget: Whoo! Whoo!
Nick: Thank you.
Sandy: I don't think I've ever been serenaded before.
Bridget: Well, get used to it. He likes to break out into song every now and then.
Sandy: And he just-- you keep your guitar in the trunk of your car in case--
Nick: You never know when you're gonna have to cajole someone into coming to a Christmas party.
Bridget: Did it work?
Sandy: Oh, look, you guys, I really appreciate the offer--
Bridget: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. If that's a no, I'm just warning you, get ready for song number two.
Nick: That's right. I just wrote one when I was out there-- "O, what surrogate is this?" I promise. I'm ready to play the whole thing. (Strumming)
Bill: George, always good to see you. Come on in.
George: Thank you for meeting me. I wasn't sure if you'd be available today. And I am so glad to finally meet you, little lady.
Bill: What brings you to L.A.?
George: Well, I thought I'd take advantage of my one day in town to touch base with you. Bill, you're well aware that the Spencer board wasn't thrilled with the acquisition of Forrester Creations. But we've always had faith in you. And once again, you've proven why. The numbers are good. I just wanted you to know that we couldn't be more pleased. Keep making the company profitable.
Bill: Well, that is certainly the plan. This next line is gonna knock your penny loafers off. It'll be a huge success.
Ridge: Dad, I don't know if your grin could be any bigger. Too much eggnog?
Eric: Actually, I was, um, I was thinking about you-- you and the company. It's gonna be yours, Ridge. It has to be. It's your time to lead. This company's gonna be yours, Ridge. I'm gonna see to it.
Stephanie: Thank you so much, honey.
Woman: Look at this.
Whip: Do you see Dennis in accounting has the same sweater as I do?
Whip: How embarrassing.
Jackie: Yep. (Chuckles) (Gasps) Oh.
Bridget: Hi, guys.
Jackie: Okay, how did it go?
Nick: No good.
Bridget: Honestly, I don't know what to do anymore. I tried to be Sandy's friend and reach out to her, but she just puts these walls right up. I don't know if I should take it as a sign that I-I shouldn't be involved in her pregnancy. It scares me, actually. Like, I'm afraid if I push too hard, she might just disappear on us.
Nick: You're just gonna have to be patient with her. That's all. Just be patient.
Bridget: I'm sure you're right. I'm sure you're right. I'm sure this happens to a lot of people. They just aren't in the mood to celebrate Christmas.
Sandy: I wasn't before, but I think I am now.
Bridget: Sandy, you came.
Jackie: Oh, hi.
Sandy: I hope it's still okay.
Nick: Um, you know, you're gonna have to admit, though--tell the truth. It was the third song I sang, right? I mean, be honest.
Owen: Oh, God, he sang.
Jackie: You sang? (Groans)
Sandy: I am just starting to realize that you're not taking pity on me. You actually really do care.
Bridget: Honey, of course we do.
Sandy: Well, I care, too, about both of you, about all of you.
Woman: (Whispering) So what did you want for Christmas?
Girl: Anybody else want a balloon?
Sandy: And I just want to say thank you for opening your hearts to me. I-I'm getting the feeling like the f--this might be the first Christmas in a long time that's actually a really good Christmas.
Katie: New designs?
Katie: Wow. Um, different.
Bill: That they are. But Eric and Ridge are the best in the business. So I have to trust that they have their fingers on the pulse of the latest fashion trends. So we just have to sit back and watch and see what our brilliant designers come up with. And whatever it is, it better be profitable.
Brooke: Have Donna call us if there's anything else that she wants us to bring.
Eric: Okay, I will.
Ridge: Dad, thank you for what you said before. I really believe we're gonna get our company back.
Eric: The Dare line's gonna do it. It's gonna be such a bomb, he's not gonna know what hit him.
(Cell phone rings)
Ridge: It's Bill.
Eric: Put it on speaker.
Bill: Ridge, I got your e-mail.
Ridge: My dad and I are very proud of those designs, Bill. We feel very strongly that's the future of Forrester Creations, a division of Spencer Publications.
Bill: Well, I'm, uh, intrigued by what I've seen so far. Now I know tomorrow's Christmas, but I want to see three more by Monday.
Ridge: No problem. We're inspired. Merry Christmas.
Eric: The man is completely snowed. This whole thing's working perfectly well. Merry Christmas.
Brooke: Merry Christmas.
Ridge: Merry Christmas.
Eric: Thank you.
Bill: You haven't taken your eyes off those designs. Kind of hard to wrap your head around, huh?
Katie: It just makes me wonder. Well, this is such a departure from what Eric and Ridge normally do. Is that wise? For years, Forrester has had a recipe for success. Why mess with it?
Bill: Because in recent years, they have had a recipe for failure. Now you know I have my concerns about Ericís supposed renewed commitment to Forrester Creations. But one thing is clear. The past is old and tired. We need a nod to the future. Change is difficult, but sometimes it's necessary. Now you want me to be more open, so I'm going to try and do that. And I'm going to trust that Eric and Ridge will be true to their word. I'm going to have, uh, faith. Whatever they come up with, I'm going to believe that we are going to win and win big with Dare.
