All: Deck the hall with boughs of holly fa‑la‑la‑la‑la la‑la‑la‑la 'tis the season to be jolly fa‑la‑la‑la‑la la‑la‑la‑la

Jennifer: Hey, Jo, it's Jennifer. Yeah, how's Abby? Oh, good, good. I'm so glad. Thanks again for letting her stay overnight for Christmas Eve. Yeah, I appreciate it. Thanks. Bye.

Man's voice: Thanks, beautiful.

Jennifer: Jack? Is that you?


Bo: Are you sure Belle's not home?

Shawn‑d: Are you kidding me? She's not going to stop shopping until she hears the bells on Santa's sleigh jingling.


Hope: Bo is going to love this. He's going to love it!

Belle: I cannot wait to see the look on Shawn's face when he sees this.

Hope: Oh, oh!

Belle: Hey!

Hope: What are you doing?

Belle: Oh, my God! What are you doing here?

Bo: Oops. Do I hear the bells on Santa's sleigh jingling?


Chloe: What child is this

who lay to rest...

Brady: You coming home for Christmas, Chloe ‑‑ that's all I want.

Chloe: Whom angels greet

with anthems sweet

while shepherds watch...

Nicole: I was just wondering.

Victor: Yes?

Nicole: If your little plan to bring the two turtle doves back together will work, or blow up in your face.

[ Blows ]

Chloe: Haste, haste to bring him laud the Babe, the Son of Mary this this is Christ the King...

Brady: Chloe...

Chloe: Whom shepherds guard and angels sing


Kate: You're just letting Sami get to you. Marlena loves you, and you're the only one she'll ever be able to say that to.

Sami: My Mom and Dad are gonna get back together, Kate. You are not going to marry him.

Kate: Well, you seem pretty damn sure of yourself. Why is that?

Sami: Because my Mom and Dad loved each other long before John came on the scene. In fact, that love never died. It's stronger than ever. And my Mom knows that my Dad's love is the only thing that's protecting her from John, the man who wants to kill her.


Roman: Damn! It's cold. Whew!

Marlena: Yeah. Roman, did you hear what I said before?

Roman: Uh, you know what? I think it might even snow.

Marlena: Okay, then I'll just say it again. I love you. Roman: I know you do, Doc. I love you, too, but ‑‑

Marlena: No. No, no "buts," no... no qualifications. Our love is just as strong as it ever was, and it... makes me think maybe Sami was right.

Roman: Oh, come on, Doc.

Marlena: We had ‑‑ we had so much taken away from us. We had everything taken away from us, you know? I want it back. I want it back. Our wedding vows were forever, just like our love.

Roman: What are you saying, Doc?

Marlena: I ‑‑ I don't want you to marry Kate.


John: Look, Samantha, contrary to what you would like to believe, I am not the Salem serial killer. I love your Mother, and I would never hurt her. And as much as I would like to waste my Christmas Eve discussing this with you, I'm going to leave now. I'm going home to my family, which includes my Wife. Merry Christmas, Kate. I hope you get that present you're looking for ‑‑ that engagement ring from Roman.


Sami: It's okay. Go ahead and stand there smiling at me. You think I don't know what's going on? You think I'm stupid?

Kate: Do you really want me to answer that?

Sami: You're just trying to sink your talons into any guy you can get your hands on. Now you're after John because you know you're not going to end up with my Dad.

Kate: Ah, God! Look, could we just ‑‑ okay, we both love your Father, all right? We both love your Son Will. So just for the Holidays ‑‑ for the Holidays ‑‑ could we have a cease‑fire?

Sami: Oh, right. So you and Victor can get out the big guns after Christmas and come after me, use me as target practice? No way. I am fighting for my life. I'm fighting for my family. I want my Mom and Dad back together by Christmas, and you know the only way I'll get that to happen is to get rid of you.

Kate: What ‑‑ what are you doing? I am going to call your Father and have you arrested for attempted murder. Stop it! Stop! Stop!


Marlena: Roman, um... I just think that you'd be making a terrible mistake to marry Kate right now. You know, you're under so much stress, and your life is at risk.

Roman: Doc, first of all, let's get something straight here. Kate's not the killer. I was with her last night when the killer attacked me at the Christmas tree lot. Like I've been saying all along, Kate's innocent.

Marlena: We don't know who the killer is, Roman. It could be anybody. Anybody. Anybody. You just can't take the chance.

Roman: It's not Kate. And besides, Doc, to be honest, I don't think any of this is about her. I think it's about you and me and our Daughter Sami. She's putting a lot of pressure on both of us. She's saying your relationship with John destroyed the family. She blames you. And, damn it, I think you're taking it to heart. I think she's got you feeling guilty because the family is not together. Eric's not home. Carrie's far away. Sami's unhappy. And now you're worried about losing me.

Marlena: I just wanted it to go on ‑‑ just the two of us... together.


[ Bell dinging ]

Jennifer: I'm sorry. For a minute, I thought that you ‑‑ I'm sorry.

Jack: I'm gonna be checking my list, and checking it twice to see if you've been naughty or ‑‑ well, uh, speaking of checking, ah, Mr. Deveraux wanted me to check one more time to see if you ‑‑ if you had an answer to his little question. Uh...yes. Yeah, so, uh, I'm asking for him ‑‑ uh, uh, uh, w‑ w‑w‑would ‑‑ w‑w‑w‑would you marry him?

Man: I'm sorry for your loss. Jennifer: How do you know about ‑‑

Man: I know a lot about you, Jennifer Horton Deveraux, and I know that your Husband is going to give you a very special gift this Christmas.

Jennifer: Well, that's impossible, because my Husband is dead.

Man: Nothing's impossible at Christmastime.

Jennifer: So you know my name, and you seem to know about me and Jack, and you believe in Christmas miracles. Who are you?

Jennifer: You're kidding!

Jennifer: A gift from Jack? Can you be more specific?

[ Bells ringing ]


Hope: Honey, I'm sorry, but this one's yours. I, for one, cannot wait to see what you guys got us. I bet it is incredible.

[ Gasps ] Oh! Oh, Bo! It's beautiful. It's perfect.

Belle: Shawn, I love it.

Hope: And it's my size.

Belle: It's great.

Bo: Those aren't the ones we bought.

Shawn‑d: I know. The saleslady must have wrapped the wrong ones.

Hope: Oh, my gosh, I wonder where he found this.

Shawn‑d: What should we do?

Hope: It's so beautiful, Belle.

Bo: Yeah, they seem to like it. We just keep our mouths shut.

Shawn‑d: Yeah, I know, but the ones that we got them were ‑‑

Bo: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Much hotter.

Hope: I thought we did an incredible job. Thank Heavens we can actually wear the lingerie.

Belle: I know. These guys have no taste when it comes to this kind of stuff.

Hope: Oh, Bo, it's ‑‑ you just know me so well. It's perfect.

Belle: Shawn, this is exactly something I would pick out for myself, and it's the right size. How did you know?

Bo: We're not a couple of bumpkins. We know what our women like.

Shawn‑d: Yeah. I'd like to think of myself as a guy who pays attention.

Hope: Well, you know what? The presents we got you guys ‑‑ it just can't possibly compare to this, and I just ‑‑

Belle: You're right.

Hope: Maybe we shouldn't even give them the gifts.

Belle: Yeah, you know, we'll just take them back.

Shawn‑d: Oh, no way. Forget it.

Bo: No, we'll be the judge ‑‑ we'll be the judge of who buys the best gift.


John: Hey, kid.

Brady: Dad! Surprised to see you here.

John: Well, I called the penthouse. Marlena's not home yet, so I thought I'd swing by here to see if you have any fire to go to mass with us tonight.

Brady: Ahh! You know what? I would love to accept that invitation ‑‑

John: Got something else cooking?

Brady: I do. Yeah. There's a possibility that Chloe might be coming back to Salem tonight.

John: Really? You're kidding me.

Brady: Yeah, yeah, but I don't think she's going to make it. I had hoped that she would have called me, tell me she's on her way...

John: No call yet?

Brady: No. But Victor sent his private jet to Vienna to pick her up, and the jet's on its way back, but I don't think she's on it.

John: Hey, never know. Never know. But, you know, I do know that seeing Chloe would be the best present you could get.

Brady: Yeah, I was kind of expecting coal in my stocking this year, but just in case...

John: Yeah, just in case. I understand.

Brady: Oh, this is the new Isabella Toscano Black concert hall.

John: Whoa, it's a beauty. May I?

Brady: Yeah, please.

John: Whoa.

Brady: You see, the plan is to have Chloe be the resident artist here.

John: It's very cool. Word of advice? You cherish every minute, every second with that girl. 'Cause the love that you think is going to last forever can be taken away from you in a heartbeat.

Brady: You still really miss Mom around the Holidays, don't you?

John: Yeah...

Brady: Dad, what is it? Talk to me. Come on, is it Marlena? You two having problems?


Marlena: Roman, I'm sorry. It's ‑‑ I'm just feeling a little confused. It's, uh, it's the Holidays, and... all the memories, they're ‑‑ I remember the picture in Caroline's scrapbook, and what she inscribed. "To Marlena and Roman Brady. May their love abide through all the years. May ‑‑ may God bless them and keep them all the days of their lives."

Roman: Doc, I know you took your wedding vows seriously, but you're married to John now, and I know that you love him very much.

Marlena: Caroline's ghost said that John was going to kill me. Oh, Roman, what if that's true? What if ‑‑ what if he kills you and then kills me?

Roman: Doc, Doc, come on, you're talking nonsense.

Marlena: I don't know. Maybe that's the price we have to pay for breaking our marriage vows.

Marlena: Roman, I'm ‑‑ I'm so sorry. I'm sorry. I just ‑‑ I'm so scared that something terrible will happen if you marry Kate.


Kate: God! Ahh! Oh, I have a mind to call Roman and have you arrested for assault with a deadly weapon.

Sami: Oh, but you're so sweet. You could never do that.

Kate: That's right, I could never do that to him, especially not at Christmas.

Sami: You know what you can't do to him? I can't marry him. All I want for Christmas is to get you out of my Dad's life for good.

Kate: Well, you know something? All I want for Christmas is a future with Roman. And since I make him happy and you make him miserable, I think it's really a no‑brainer whose Christmas wish is going to come true, don't you?

Sami: I've got to find some way to get that bitch out of my Dad's life, and to break up John and my Mom for good.

[Snaps her finger]


Jennifer: [ Shivers ] Hey, is anyone home?

Mickey: Hey.

Alice: Jennifer.

Mickey: Hey, come on in, honey. You're a little early.

Jennifer: Hi. I know. I thought I could help with the tree‑trimming party, and could use the company right now.

Mickey: I'm ready to do that myself. Come on in.

Jennifer: Hey, Gram, Merry Christmas.

Alice: Merry Christmas to you, too, darling.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Jennifer: Oh! I'm sorry. I thought it was the phone. I'm expecting a phone call, a very important phone call, Gram. Mickey: Hey, come on in.

Lucas: How you doing, Uncle Mickey?

Mickey: Hey there. Good to see you, Will.

Will: Oh, thanks. Merry Christmas, Uncle Mickey.

Mickey: Thanks, thanks. Take the coat off. Here. Come on in, come on in.

Lucas: Thank you.

Mickey: Everybody's inside.

Lucas: Yeah, right there, champ, on the hook.

Mickey: Good. Got it?

Alice: Oh, Merry Christmas, you two.

Lucas: Merry Christmas.

Jennifer: Yeah, uh, Merry Christmas.

Mickey: Uh, look, um, I sense that we need to clear the air here a little bit, so I just want to remind everybody that Roman was at the Christmas tree lot last night with Bonnie and me, and he was attacked by the killer there.

Alice: No!

Mickey: Thank goodness nobody was hurt, but the fact is, we know where Lucas was last night, so any suspicions that we have about him can be laid to rest. Lucas is not the serial killer. Furthermore, he is a Horton, and he has every reason to be here tonight celebrating with us, so come here, you two. Merry Christmas. Mwah!

Lucas: Thank you, Uncle Mickey. Thank you very much.

Alice: Oh, Lucas, Will, both of you ‑‑ get over here and give Grandma a big hug. Lucas: That we can do.

Alice: Oh, darling. Darling Lucas.

Lucas: Merry Christmas.

Jennifer: Merry Christmas.

Lucas: Thank you.


Marlena: I'd like you to think about what I said. Don't make any impulsive decisions.

Roman: I hope you'll take my advice, too.

Marlena: Good night. Merry Christmas.

Sami: See? What did I tell you? My Christmas wish is coming true. My parents are going to get back together.


Hope: Merry Christmas!

Jennifer: Oh, Merry Christmas!

Mickey: Hey! Merry Christmas!

Hope: Merry Christmas, Gran.

Jennifer: Iíve been waiting for you to get here. You are going to think that I am crazy, but I got a message from ‑‑ I'm not going to say anything, but I was told something.

Hope: From who?

Jennifer: I'm expecting a phone call, and then I'll know if what I was told is true.

Hope: If what is true? Why are you being so mysterious?

Jennifer: Jack, he ‑‑

Hope: What?

Jennifer: He always loved surprises.

Jennifer: Do you see ‑‑

Hope: See what?

Jennifer: Just, uh, just how full and beautiful that tree is.

Alice: And that tree needs ornaments.

Mickey: Oh, yeah. Hey, it's, uh... hey, it's Christmas, and it's time to ‑‑ time to be close to the ones that we love, including ‑‑ and maybe this year especially ‑‑ those who...who live only in our hearts.

Jennifer: Wait, where's Jack's? I can't find Jack's.

Hope: Hold on a second. Oh, it's right there. It's right there.

Jennifer: Santa had it.

Will: Santa?

Jennifer: Yeah. Yeah. Santa.


Brady: Well, how could you not see the plane land and then taxi in? Oh. You weren't on duty yet. Okay, listen, I'm terribly sorry. Merry Christmas.

Nicole: Any news?

Brady: Hmm?

Nicole: Chloe.

Brady: Oh, the plane landed an hour ago. She would have been here by now if she was on it.


Roman: Marlena, I will always love you, and I know you'll always love me, but our time has gone by. You got John. Go home to him. And when you're in his arms, you'll know without a doubt that he's your future.

John: I don't blame you for all the feelings that you're having, Doc. But I have to ask you 'cause I need to know, and I want you to be honest with me. Are your thoughts of you and me, or are they changing into thoughts of you... without ?


Roman: Hey, Kate! I've been looking all over for you.

Kate: Really?

Roman: Yes, really. Where have you been?

Kate: Well, I've been here.

Roman: All right. Well, at least I'm glad I found you, because I have a Christmas present for you. Now, let's see if, uh, let's see if I can find this thing. Let me look around here. I thought it was there. No. Ahh...okay. I think I found it. Here it is, right here.

Sami: No way. I have to stop this.


Shawn‑d: Good. Okay. Fix your Brother's. That's good right there. All right. Hey, give me a high‑five. All right.

Zack: What's that?

Shawn‑d: I think there's room on the tree for your ornament someday.

Belle: Shawn, that's what I dream about ‑‑ having a happy future like your parents and mine. But then I think of Jennifer losing the love of her life.

Jennifer: Jack said I'd never be alone. It's really hard to believe that now that he's gone. But he told me to have faith. Maybe he gave me the best Christmas present in the world.

[ Telephone rings ]

Jennifer: Hello? Yes, this is Jennifer.


Victor: Come on, Nicole, I think Brady needs to be alone.

[ Carolers singing outside ]

Nicole: Tough luck, kiddo. If you're in the mood for a midnight eggnog, I'll be in my room.

Victor: Say good night, Nicole.

Nicole: Good night, Nicole.

Carolers: O come let us adore Him o come let us adore Him o come let us...

Woman's voice: Adore him

Christ the Lord

Brady: Chloe?


Kate: [ Thinking ] I think Sami's going to get her Christmas wish.

Sami: Yes!

Roman: Kate?

Kate: I love it. It's so sweet. I really love it. Thank you. Thank you.

Roman: Um, you know what? Um... I‑I actually got you a little something else, too. Um, let's see. Um, let's see, where is that? First of all, let me tell you this. It's not exactly a Christmas gift. It's ‑‑ well, it's more like... a gift of love. Like, probably be more appropriate on Valentine's Day, but what the hell. I mean, tonight seems like, uh, just the right time. Here.

Kate: Ha ha ha.

Sami: No. No! No!

Kate: Oh...are you sure about this?

Roman: No. No. Wait a minute. Let's do this right.

Roman: Kate Roberts, will you please marry me?

Kate: Yes. Yes, I will. Oh. I love you, Roman. I love you so much. You're the man I want to spend the rest of my life with.

Roman: By God, Kate, I love you with all my heart. I love you with all my heart, and you are absolutely the only woman in the world for me. Do you understand that I love you so much. I love you.

Carolers: The angels

did say

was to certain

poor shepherds in fields as they lay

Lucas: Make sure you space 'em out good.

Sami: Lucas, it happened. My Dad proposed to Kate.

Lucas: Sami, it's Christmas. For Will's sake, please, can we act like a normal family?

Sami: Hi, sweetie.

[ Sobs ]

Will: What's wrong? Mom, are you sad?

Sami: Sweetie, how can I be sad? I am with the most important man ‑‑ the only man in my life ‑‑ at Christmastime.


John: Here you go.

Marlena: Thank you.

John: You never answered my question.

John: Is everything all right with us?

Marlena: I have so much to be grateful for this Christmas ‑‑ a wonderful family... a warm, loving home. Could you hold me?

John: Always. I love you.

Marlena: John... promise me something.

John: What's that?

Marlena: Promise me they'll find this killer and we'll all feel safe again.

John: I will promise you that I will move Heaven and Earth to make that happen. I'll do whatever I can just to make our family whole and happy again.


Jennifer: That was, uh, that was Mike. And he wanted to wish everyone a very ‑‑ a very Merry Christmas.

Bo: Okay.

Hope: You all right?

Jennifer: Yeah, I'm okay. I just ‑‑ I don't think Iím going to get this great surprise, after all. I think that my imagination is getting the best of me.

Hope: I don't understand what you're talking about. Jen...

[ Telephone rings ]

[ Ring ]

Mickey: Hello, Horton house. Yeah. Jennifer, it's for you.

Jennifer: Yes? Uh‑huh... oh... thank you. Thank you. Merry Christmas.

Bo: All right, you got our attention.

Jennifer: All right, I, um, I just got the most wonderful Christmas present ever from Jack.

Alice: What is it, dear?

Jennifer: Well, I wanted to be sure, so I went to the hospital, and I took a test.

Bo: What kind of test?

Jennifer: I'm... I'm pregnant.

Hope: Oh! Mickey: Oh, my God!

Jennifer: Jack and I are going to have a baby!

Mickey: Ha ha ha ha! Life goes on, the Horton family endures and grows, and... God bless you, Jennifer. God bless our family.

Jennifer: I can't believe it.

Alice: Thank you, Tom. Ha ha ha ha.

Bo: Wow. That's great.

Shawn‑d: What a Christmas, huh?

Jennifer: This is the best Christmas present.


Brady: Now, is that... my imagination or ‑‑ no, the CD player is on, Brady, but ‑‑

Chloe: Receive her King

Brady: No, it's not.

Brady: Chloe? Chloe!

Brady: Silent night holy night

Chloe: All is calm all is bright

Brady: 'Round yon Virgin Mother and Child holy infant so tender and mild

Brady and Chloe: Sleep in Heavenly peace sleep in Heavenly peace

Brady and Chloe: Silent night holy night shepherds quake at the sight glories stream from Heaven afar Heavenly hosts sing alleluia Christ the Savior is born Christ the Savior is born

Brady: Silent night

Chloe: Silent night

Brady: Holy night

Chloe: Holy night

Brady: Son of God

Brady and Chloe: Love's pure light radiant beams from Thy Holy Face with the dawn of redeeming grace Jesus Lord at Thy birth Jesus Lord at Thy birth

Alice: Oh. A new life. A child is born... bringing so much hope and love into the world. A true Christmas miracle.


Roman: I'd like to do this marriage thing sooner rather than later.

Kate: No. No, we're not getting married.

Chloe: You waited for me?

Brady: Well, I never stopped loving you, Chloe.

Chloe: God, I was hoping you would say that.

Victor: You're never going to get your hands on Brady.

Nicole: Merry Christmas to you, too, you Grinch.

Abby: I love you.

Jennifer: Thank you, Jack.
