Thorne: Oh, attention, holiday revelers! What you've all be waiting for --

Aly: Grandpa's famous eggnog.

Eric: Now, here we are, ladies and gentlemen. You all know how much Stephanie loved my eggnog.

Rick: Uh, well...

Eric: All right, all right, stretching the truth a little.


Eric: But she always humored me, and I'm assuming that you will allow the rest of the family to humor me, as well. Good. Thank you.


Eric: All right, everyone. Happy holidays!

All: Happy holidays!

Tony: Feliz Navidad!

Eric: Here, put that here. Put it right there.

Tony: Feliz Navidad, also, right?

Eric: And Feliz Navidad, too. Put it right over here.

(Indistinct conversion)

Eric: All right, everybody. If you would -- if you would just, uh, sort of -- if you'd sort of indulge the old man here.

Felicia: You're not old, Daddy.


Eric: We're all missing Stephanie, of course. And we're missing Bridget and Logan and Hope. In the meantime, we're making -- we're making new memories here, all of us, as a family. To peace on earth and goodwill to all.

All: Here, here.

Tony: Salud.

Ridge: Here's to dad.

Kristen: To mom.

Felicia: To this crazy, glorious family.

Thorne: And to the birth of a child long ago that forever changed the world.

Eric: Sounds like a segue to me.

Ridge: Come here. Now, when I was a boy, we would draw names to see who got to place the baby Jesus in the stable.

Brooke: And I think it's your turn this time, honey.
