Episode #12240 ~ The Hortons hang their family ornaments; Anne tries to prevent a Horton tradition; Gabi sees Julie as a threat to her future; Victor visits Eric.

Provided By Suzanne

Julie: Here's Ciara's little ornament. Precious girl.

JJ: It's too bad her dad isn't here for Christmas, huh?

Julie: It sure is. And you know, this is not easy on hope either. I really don't even understand--

Ciara: Grandpa Doug!

Hope: I'm sorry, I hope we're not too late. Merry Christmas. Oh, daddy, mwah! Merry Christmas, merry Christmas, merry Christmas!

Doug: All my princesses.

Hope: Merry Christmas. Aw, Julie, merry Christmas.

Doug: Princesses.

Daniel: Oh, boy, there he goes. Don't crash!

Maggie: Do you need any help? Well, guess not. Never mind. [Laughs]

Daniel: Well, I'd say it was a hit.

Maggie: Oh... I'm so glad he's here for Christmas.

Victor: Yes, and I'm so glad that you are too.

Maggie: Oh.

Anne: Psst. Hold onto your hat. This Christmas party is going to be full of surprises.

Maxine: Not if I can help it.

Will: [Laughs] I think Santa was pretty good to you. What do you think, Ari?

Sonny: I think we could've wrapped empty boxes and she still would be happy.

Will: That's probably true.

Sonny: Lucas sent that with Allie. Thought it was so funny.

Gabi: Well, I don't. I mean, what's up with this guy who's--who's Santa?

Sonny: Just relax.

Gabi: No, I mean, he keeps showing up everywhere I go. It's like he knows what I did to Nick.

Kate: Okay, Billie. Merry Christmas to you too. I love you.

Nick: This one's on the house.

Kate: What the hell? Oh, shoot, shoot. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. No, no! Damn it! Good-bye and good riddance.

Lucas: You talking about good, old cousin Nick?

Sami: I know you will find this hard to believe, Eric, but your nephew was very restless last night.

Eric: Oh, really? Last night, huh?

Sami: [Chuckles] Yeah. He--he said the only priest he wants to listen to is his uncle Eric.

Caroline: Oh, that's sweet.

Eric: Well, I didn't want to make a scene at St. Luke's, so I went to holy cross.

Sami: Well, you were right, even though we did miss you.

Kayla: Eric, do you want to help me bring the gifts from upstairs?

Eric: Yes, sure.

Nicole: Merry Christmas. Ahh! What's going on?

Johnny: I was afraid you weren't coming.

Nicole: Uh, are you kidding? I would not skip Christmas day without seeing you. Are you serious? Look. [Gasps] I got something for you. And something for you. I hope you don't mind that I brought them presents.

Sami: No, of course not.

Johnny: Thanks!

Sami: [Laughs] You go open yours too, Sydney.

Nicole: I would've come by last night, but I decided to get some religion and go to mass. [Chuckles]

Sami: Oh, really?

Nicole: Mm-hmm.

Sami: Huh. That's not surprising to me at all. I guess my brother failed to mention that you went to mass with him, didn't you?

Julie: Your brother Michael keeps a little palm tree in the hut he lives in to remind him of the family tradition in his little corner of the world.

Jennifer: Well, I wish he would come to our little corner of the world one of these years.

Abigail: Mom, it's kind of like I was telling JJ yesterday. When we hang the ornaments on the tree, it's like everybody's here with us.

Jennifer: I know, I know. No okay, look at-- [Laughs] Oh, stop it. You are too much. I like them.

[Indistinct chatter]

Doug: It wouldn't surprise me to see Bo come sliding down that chimney right now.

Hope: Daddy, please, don't. Don't get Ciara's hopes up. It's not gonna happen.

Doug: I know he's on some top secret mission right now, but he couldn't come home for a couple days? Your birthday, Christmas, your anniversary? Zack's...

Hope: Daddy. You know how I completely support Bo's work, right?

Doug: Yeah, I know you do.

Hope: I just don't know-- this is really hurting Ciara. And I really wish that he were here today, for her.

Ciara: But daddy is here.

Johnny: Thanks, Nicole! This is so cool!

Nicole: Yes! I'm so glad you like it! Oh, so cute.

Sydney: I love you, mommy Nicole.

Nicole: Oh, I love you too, sweetheart. Oh.

Sami: Hey, sweetheart, you know what? You go play, okay? Go play with your new toys. Mommy Nicole and I need to talk.

Nicole: Okay, look. I did ask Eric to go with me to holy cross.

Sami: Okay. You think I don't know what you're trying to do?

Nicole: What am I trying to do, Sami? Seduce a priest under the watchful eye of the live nativity and 500 pious parishioners?

Sami: You know, if you just give Eric some time, he might not be a priest for that much longer.

Nicole: Okay, will you stop?

Sami: Just hang in there, Nicole.

Nicole: Stop it. I am trying to clear his name, for God's sake. I can't win with you, can I? You want me to help Eric, yet you don't want me to go anywhere near him. I'm sorry, but Eric is my friend. And I didn't think he should be alone on Christmas eve. Would you rather he had been?

Sami: No, of course not.

Nicole: All right, I'm-- I'm gonna let you enjoy the rest of your holiday with your family.

Sami: Nicole... thank you. Merry Christmas.

Nicole: Merry Christmas.

Eric: Nicole, wait. Are you ready grandma? Just a second, sweetie.

Daniel: What in the helicopter is this?

Maggie: [Laughs]

Daniel: Look at that. How's, uh, how's Brady doing?

Parker: This is mine.

Victor: Terrible. He left me a note, said he needed to be away for the holidays.

Daniel: Well, that's understandable.

Maggie: Oh, I'm afraid that's the last thing he needed right now.

Victor: Better get going. I'll have Henderson bring the car around.

Maggie: Okay.

Daniel: Okay, did you-- did you bring it?

Maggie: Yes. I feel like I've absconded with the crown jewels though. Okay.

Daniel: Oh, thank you. Thank you for letting me borrow this.

Maggie: Oh...

Daniel: I will take very, very good care of it.

Maggie: Well, I know you will, because if you don't, Julie will kill us both.

Daniel: Okay.

Maggie: [Laughs]

Kate: So what makes you think I was talking about Nick?

Lucas: That was the infamous flash drive, right? What were you doing hanging onto it for so long?

Kate: Well, I thought we might be able to use it to get our files back, but apparently, it's hopeless, so...

Lucas: Yeah, well, I guess that does suck. But, in the scheme of things, it's just the spring line, right? It's not, like, life or death.

Kate: No, of course not.

Adrienne: Hello! Hey, Justin, is very sorry that he had to miss Arianna's first Christmas. I told him not to fly through Denver in December, but he didn't listen.

Sonny: If you are in a duel with Santa, you pretty much won.

Adrienne: Listen--

Will: I think so.


Adrienne: Not that I don't want to spoil my first-- well, Arianna, um--

Will: Your grandchild.

Adrienne: Yea--thank you. But you can blame this whole display on Justin. After four boys, he finally got his little girl.

Will: Oh, my gosh.

[Arianna fusses]

Will: Oh, hello. I think we have the most spoiled little baby in Salem.

Adrienne: Oh, I think the cutest.

Will: [Laughs] Yes, I think so too. You want to open some presents?

Adrienne: Oh, careful. It's very heavy.

Will: Okay.

Adrienne: Tons in there.

Will: Aah!

Gabi: Hey, merry Christmas.

Adrienne: Hey, merry Christmas, sweetheart. Oh! Mommy's first Christmas is just as special as baby's.

Gabi: Thank you very much. That's very sweet of you. Oh, this is beautiful. Thank you.

Adrienne: Oh, sweetie.

Gabi: Thank you so much.

Adrienne: You're welcome. So are you at peace with your decision not to take the modeling job and stay in Salem?

Gabi: I can't imagine ever being away from this life.

Adrienne: You know, Justin told me that Nick had gotten a job in New York to be closer to you and the baby. Was that upsetting? I'm sure it was.

Gabi: It was, but, um... you don't have to worry. I mean...he's gone, so...

[Nervous laugh]

Johnny: Sorry. I thought it'd go that way.

Theresa: Yeah, that's okay. They're tricky like that. Hey, why don't we get our coats and, um, we'll go outside, okay? I'll show you how to throw a spiral.

Johnny: Cool!

Theresa: Yeah!

Caroline: Well, well, well. Ha, see. I-I told you Theresa was settling down.

Kayla: Uh, maybe so, but I'm not letting my guard down yet.

Caroline: Well, nobody is yet.

Roman: What you looking at?

Sami: Dad, did you know that Nicole went with Eric to midnight mass at the holy cross?

Roman: Well, as ma often says, "the lord works in mysterious ways." [Chuckles]

Eric: Uh... you know you're more than welcome to stay and have breakfast with us.

Nicole: Thanks, but I have plans.

Eric: Of course, with Daniel.

Nicole: Thanks for keeping our secret.

Eric: I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

Nicole: Back at ya.

Ciara: Abigail said these ornaments make it like our family's right here with us.

Hope: That's true.

Ciara: So since daddy's not here to hang it himself, we'll hang it for him... just like we do for Shawn and Zack. And wherever he is, he'll know we're thinking about him, right?

Hope: Come here. Of course he will, honey.

Julie: So Jennifer, are you gonna be reading the Christmas story again n is y yr?

Jennifer: Well, unless someone else would like to do the honors.

Doug: You'd be a tough act to follow.

Jennifer: Oh, I don't know about that.

Maggie: Are we the last ones here?

Hope: No, Lucas called. They're on their way right now.

Maggie: Oh, great.

Victor: Thank you.

Hope: Of course.

Abigail: Merry Christmas, aunt Maggie.

Maggie: Oh, hi! Both: Mwah!

Abigail: Hi!

Maggie: Oh, my goodness, is this--?

Abigail: Great-gram's old recipe.

Maggie: Oh, my goodness, I thought it was lost forever.

Abigail: So did we, but mom and I looked forever, and we found it. And I know it's probably not quite the same--

Maggie: Oh, Abigail. No, no, no, no, no, no. It takes me back 30 years. [Laughs] Such wonderful memories. And so many more to make.

Theresa: Okay, come on.

Roman: All right, here we go. You read to launch?

Johnny: Yeah!

Roman: Okay, come on!

Eric: [Laughs] Whoa, whoa.

Roman: All right! [Laughs] Hey.

Sami: Did Nicole leave? You could've asked her to stay. I mean, she is alone.

Eric: Actually, she already has plans. But thank you for, you know, asking.

Sami: For not being my usual nasty self?

Eric: You took the words right out of my mouth. I heard EJ, he didn't attend midnight mass at St. Luke's.

Sami: Well, he was busy. I mean, he was playing Santa until 3:00 in the morning.

Eric: And now he's doing what? Sleeping in on Christmas instead of being with his family?

Sami: Eric, you know how daddy can be.

Eric: This isn't about dad. Hey, are you two having problems? It's because of me, isn't it?

Anne: This Christmas party is going to be fun, if it kills us. Not like in past years, with all these whiny children looking all morose and bored.

Maxine: You know what I'm bored with? You thinking you have to fix everything.

Anne: I just want these children to enjoy themselves. I'm sorry, does that offend you, Maxine?

Maxine: Miss Milbauer, this party is a time-honored tradition that no one has ever dared complain about but you. If tom Horton could hear you talking about fixing anything, especially as it pertains to Christmas, he would turn over in his grave.

Anne: Yeah, well, this hospital, it is a living, breathing institution, okay? It's not a shrine to his memory. Or to his offspring.

Maxine: [Scoffs] You will be digging your own grave if you try to spring a surprise on anybody. And take off that ridiculous hat.

Anne: [Sighs] Yes, indeed, a grave will be dug. But it will not be mine.

Parker: Tuku! Tuku!

Daniel: Yeah, "Tuku." Do the "Tuku." What do you think of that? Put it down. Think she's gonna like it?

Parker: B-but this part is not staying there.

Daniel: Oh, well, you better put another one. But do you think she's gonna like it?

Parker: Yeah.

Daniel: I do too. Get it.

Will: Wow.

Gabi: Look at that!

[All awwing]

Will: You're official now.

Gabi: For you. Want to touch it?

Will: You want to hold it?

Gabi: You want to hold it? You want it?

Will: It's probably fragile, so it's best you don't. Want to hang it up?

Gabi: Yeah, let's hang it up.

Will: Let's hang it up.

Gabi: You want to hang it up?

Maggie: Oh, let me take that.

Will: Thank you.

Maggie: Oh, you're welcome.

[Adeste Fideles playing]

Daniel: All right, good-bye!

Parker: Bye!

Daniel: Merry Christmas!

Parker: Merry Christmas!

Daniel: All right. You want to hit the off button?

Parker: Yeah.

Daniel: Attaboy. Wasn't it great to see Melanie?

Parker: Yeah.

Daniel: Yeah.

Nicole: [Gasps] Hey, guys!

Daniel: What!

Nicole: Hello!

Daniel: Jeez!

Nicole: Oh, my goodness! Oh, my goodness! [Grunts] Oh! That's the biggest hug ever! Oh, my goodness, I didn't think you guys would be home already.

Daniel: Oh, yeah, yeah. Victor and Maggie, they went over to the Horton house, and--

Nicole: Oh, yeah.

Daniel: Yeah. Yeah, so anyway, parker and I thought we would just chill and hang out. Um, would you like to join us? I mean, or do you have plans?

Nicole: No. No plans. [Laughs] Not a one.

Sami: It's complicated, Eric. You know? I mean, obviously, the Kristen thing is part of it, but...

Eric: Something else is going on.

Sami: [Sighs] It's complicated. But we're trying to work through it. This is the part where you're supposed to say, "that's great, Sami!"

Theresa: Oh, my God, Sami, your kids are so cute. I can hardly stand it. Oh, and by the way, Johnny tells me that Santa used the same wrapping paper that his parents had last year.

Sami: Oh, no.

Theresa: Yes.

Sami: Oh, God.

Theresa: [Laughs] So, anyway. Hey, if you ever need a babysitter...

Sami: [Laughs]

Eric: Oh, my goodness.

Caroline: Eric, could you give me a hand? I-I blew a fuse and I can't reach the reset button.

Eric: Of course.

Caroline: Nick always used to do that for me. You know, he's the only one who could reach it.

Eric: [Laughs] Okay.

Caroline: Back here.

Ciara: Did you get everything you wanted for Christmas?

Allie: Yeah.

Ciara: Well, I didn't. I had to give back my earring that Theo gave to me because you blabbed my secret.

Allie: I'm sorry.

Ciara: Apology not accepted.

Jennifer: [Sighs]

Abigail: Hey, mom, what's wrong?

Jennifer: The food bank, they didn't receive the turkeys that I arranged to have delivered today. I don't understand. I'm gonna have to go in and look for the purchase order.

Abigail: Well, can I help?

Jennifer: Um, no, it's all right. I'll straighten it all out and I'll meet you at the party at the hospital, okay?

Abigail: Okay.

Jennifer: Love you.

Abigail: Yeah.

Will: You know, I wish you could've met your great-grandma Alice. Her ornament is right there at the top. She started this tradition with St her five kids, and now look at it. It is a big honor to have your ornament up here, you know? Oh. [Laughs]

Julie: Oh, dear. Oh, I can't believe we forgot Nick.

Lucas: Well, that is crazy, isn't it?

Julie: Come to think of it, I have not heard a word from him since he went to New York. That--that's strange. Well, if he thinks he can just drop off the face of the earth, he's gotta think again.

Will: [Sighs]

Will: Merry Christmas.

Sami: Merry Christmas. Hey, Sonny. Oh, my gosh. Merry Christmas, little one. Hi, sweetheart.

Gabi: Hi.

Sami: Oh... what's going on?

Gabi: Well, we kind of overheard Julie mention that she hasn't heard from Nick in a while, and that she's not gonna allow him to just drop off the face of the earth.

Kate: Well, she's not going to have much choice about that, now is she?

Gabi: Yeah, and then that creepy Santa guy, he keeps popping up everywhere.

Sami: Right, right. Well...huh.

Kate: Honey, luckily, Christmas is over.

Gabi: I feel like this is never gonna be over.

Sami: [Sighs]

Doug: You're not coming to the hospital party?

Hope: Uh, I'm gonna keep the eggnog flowing.

Doug: Ah.

Victor: I'm sorry I won't be here to play Santa Claus this year.

Maggie: No, you're not. [Laughs] But you are delivering the most important gift of all.

Jennifer: Yes, I spoke to Robert yesterday. He assured me the delivery would be made by 10:00 A.M., And now you're telling me that you have no record of it. Yes, I have a confirmation number. Just hold on one second.

Anne: Oh, gosh. I hope this little snafu doesn't keep Jennifer from gracing the party with her sunshiney presence. Thank you.

Caroline: Ah, thanks. Oh, I forgot Kayla's pies.

Theresa: Oh.

Caroline: Can I trust you to take a mincemeat pie and not steal a sample?

Theresa: [Laughs] Grandma. Uh, no, I'm not gonna actually go to the Hortons'.

Caroline: What? Oh, no, no. It's been a tradition of our family since before you were born. Well, then you can do it without me? I just--I don't think Jennifer really wants me there. Theresa, I told you. Jenn is fine with this. She wants you to celebrate with us.

Eric: 'Cause that's what the holidays are all about, right? Friends, family, forgiveness.

Caroline: Yes, it is. Okay, then. You got your coat, so grab a pie. Let's go.

Theresa: Okay.

Caroline: Come on, take this.

Eric: [Clears throat]

Caroline: I'm sorry, we're clos-- oh, Victor.

Victor: Merry Christmas, Caroline.

Caroline: Merry Christmas. Well, we're on our way over--

Victor: To Jennifer's. Yes, I'll see you over there in a moment. But I need to have a word with your grandson first. Oh, I see.

Victor: Alone.

Caroline: Oh, okay.

Julie: Oh, Kayla. Kayla, thanks heavens. I need the list. The list of the presents for the children.

Kayla: Jennifer has it.

Julie: Oh, Jennifer's all tied up.

Kayla: What do you mean she's tied up?

Julie: [Sighs]

Abigail: Oh, uh, mom got a text from the food bank, actually, and they said that they didn't get the donations she sent over, so.

Kayla: But they did. 'Cause I got a thank you email this morning.

Maggie: That's strange.

Anne: Ho, ho, ho, kids!

Maggie: Oh...

Maxine: Speaking of strange.

Abigail: Uh, elf Annie. That's my mom's seat.

Anne: Oh, you know, I don't see her name on it. Jennifer's not here, and these poor, sick children, they're all waiting.

Maggie: Anne Milbauer to the rescue.

Anne: So I am going to read you a story, and not the same old one you're tired of hearing every year. This one is called--

Doug: Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho!

All: Santa!

Doug: Yes!

Anne: Santa, you're early.

Doug: Yes, I'll take over here, kids. I'll just take over now. You can go...

JJ: Elf yourself.

Abigail: Oh! [Laughs]

Doug: Yes, uh, right there. Yes, thank you. Okay, kids. Um, now, I know that was gonna be a wonderful story, uh, but I-I'm sure that you'd prefer to hear the true meaning about Christmas, right?

All: Yeah!

Doug: I knew it.

Abigail: That's mom's cue, and she's not here.

JJ: I think Santa wants you to do it.

Abigail: Oh, no, no.

Maggie: Yes.

Abigail: No, I--

JJ: I had to sing for everyone, you can get up there and read.

Kayla: Abigail, you can do it, sweetie.

Julie: Come, my darling.

Kayla: Go sit over there, okay?

Abigail: [Chuckles]

Doug: Here she is.

Abigail: Hi, kids. My name is Abigail, and a very long time ago, I was in the hospital on Christmas just like you. I know that you guys have heard this story before, but, uh, it's not just a story, right? This is a story about love and it's a story about hope, and also a story about the past and the future. Great. Okay.

Julie: Okay.


Abigail: "And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out."

Tide pods

three-in-one detergent. the same country, shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the lord stood before them, and the glory of the lord shone all around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then, the angel said to them, 'do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings...'"

JJ: I should go find mom.

Maggie: Oh, okay.

Jennifer: I'm right here.

Maggie: Oh!

Jennifer: [Gasps]

Maggie: I'm sorry, we had to start without you.

Jennifer: No, no, this is better.

Maggie: Look at her.

Abigail: "'In the city of David, a savior, who is Christ the lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.' And suddenly, there was a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!'"

Doug: Yes.

Maggie: She did a good job.

Doug: Angels we have heard on high both: Sweetly singing o'er the plains and the mountains in reply echoing their joyous strains

All: Gloria in excelsis deo

Nicole: [Gasps] Parker! You have a new ornament. This has your name on it, wow! Well, shouldn't that be on the "official" Horton Christmas tree?

Daniel: Yeah, I really didn't want to make things more difficult. So I got them on loan from mom.

Parker: This one has no names on it.

Daniel: This one has my name.

Nicole: That's Daniel's.

Daniel: And you know whose this is? This--this one is yours! This one is--oh. You know what? Do you want to help us hang 'em?

Nicole: Yeah.

Daniel: Yeah?

Nicole: Yeah, let's do it. Come on, parker, let's hang 'em.

Daniel: Okay, come on.

Nicole: Come on. Here we go, you ready?

Daniel: Ready? Let's go do it. Oh, man. Where should we put 'em?

Nicole: [Laughs] Now it's perfect.

Daniel: No, no, no, no. Not quite yet. [Whispers] Go! Go!

Nicole: Uh-oh. Oh, what? Where are we going? Where are we going? Oh, my goodness.

Daniel: Don't tell her yet.

Nicole: [Laughs]

Daniel: Keep going. Behind that--that thing. Yes! Remember the thing? Show her. Reach--yeah.

Nicole: Oh, so exciting.

Daniel: We can't tell you yet.

Nicole: Okay.

Daniel: It's top secret Christmas--where'd that thing go? Give it to her.

Nicole: Oh, my goodness!

Daniel: Guess who wrapped it.

Nicole: Oh, let me guess.

Parker: We wrapped it and taped it.

Daniel: Yeah.

Nicole: Perfect. This is so sweet. Okay, can I open it?

Parker: Yeah.

Nicole: Okay, here I go. [Mimics explosion] [Gasps] Oh, my goodness! It has my name on it.

Daniel: It does. Yeah. We thought that you should have an ornament too.

Nicole: Aw, parker. This is the nicest gift that anyone's ever given me. Thank you.

Victor: Eric, if you don't want to accept my apology, I understand, but I have to offer it.

Eric: Go on.

Victor: When your mother and I found out that Kristen had been unfaithful to Brady... never in a million years did we dream that--

Eric: That it would be with me.

Victor: I just wanted Brady to know the ugly truth about the woman he was marrying.

Eric: And when you found out what she had done, you thought it was right and proper that it come out on his wedding day... in front of his family and friends?

Victor: I made a huge error in judgment... but at least I'm here now, trying to make amends.

Eric: I appreciate that.

Victor: Eric, if there's anything I can do to help you-- anything, anything at all-- please, don't hesitate to ask. Now, I'll let you enjoy your holiday with your family.

Eric: Victor. Merry Christmas.

Doug: I thought old Santa would be the most popular guy at the hospital party, but no. Who was it? It was Abigail!


Jennifer: Oh, baby, you did such a great job, really.

Abigail: Thanks, mom.

Julie: And you, did you track down those turkeys?

Jennifer: [Sighs] Yes, I did.


Maggie: A certain someone sent her on a wild turkey chase.

Caroline: Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!

[All exclaiming]

Julie: Merry Christmas! Mwah!

Abigail: What is she doing here?

Jennifer: I told Caroline that she could come.

Abigail: Mom!

Jennifer: Honey, it is Christmas.

Abigail: Oh, my God, that is ridiculous.

Hope: It's so good to see you. Here, let me take the pie off your hands.

Caroline: Thank you!

Hope: You can go hang your coat.

Caroline: Let me take--oh.

Jennifer: Merry Christmas. I'm glad you came.

Caroline: Thank you, me too.

Theresa: [Sighs] Hey, JJ.

JJ: What the hell are you doing here?

[Musical jingle]

Gabi: [Gasps, yelps]

Kate: Excuse me.

Maggie: Sure.

Kate: You know, you can't freak out every time someone says "boo."

Sami: Yeah, no. If you keep acting like that, Nick's not the only one who's life will be over.

Kate: Okay? You just have to keep on thinking about Arianna grace.

Sami: Stop thinking about the fact that we... m'd Nick Fallon. Shall we?

Julie: Gentlemen...

Will: Mm-hmm?

Julie: What's wrong with this picture? Are Kate and Sami bonding over being grandmothers before their time?

Lucas: Well, stranger things have happened. Well, maybe not.

Will: [Laughs]

Theresa: My grandma was going on about the ages-old bond between the Hortons and the Bradys. I tried to get out of coming, but since I'm here, it's the perfect opportunity for me to remind you of our own special bond.

JJ: I don't need reminding.

Theresa: Well, apparently, you do, because you haven't come through for me. Now, either you do everything I say, or next year, you'll be the hunky little partridge in some inmate's pear tree. Merry Christmas.

Abigail: Well, mom, you are a much better person than I am. You're being really cool about Theresa Donovan being here.

Jennifer: Well, cool might be an overstatement.

Abigail: So, uh, I noticed that we didn't hang Daniel's ornament on the tree this year.

Jennifer: Yeah, that was his choice. It wasn't mine. But you know, next year, it's not gonna be so awkward, because I'm moving on and I have a date with Liam, and Daniel, I'm sure, is moving on. That's how it should be, right?

Abigail: Yeah, absolutely. Right.

Jennifer: Okay.

Abigail: [Sighs]

Nicole: Adorable.

Daniel: [Laughs] Yeah, it is.

Nicole: Aww.

Daniel: Cute. You know, sometimes, the holidays, you think are gonna be the hardest... they turn out to be pretty good after all.

Nicole: I know what you mean. Hmm. [Chuckles]

Maggie: Jennifer...

Jennifer: Yeah?

Maggie: We want to thank you for having us... and for being such a wonderful steward of tom and Alice's home and their memory.

Jennifer: Well, this is our home. This home belongs to all of us.

Maggie: This has been another year full of surprises. And tremendous blessings. Of new love... and lasting love.

Doug: Is she talking about us?

Julie: Yes, darling, she is.

Maggie: [Laughs] And a year...[Laughs] Full of grace... and hope. And grief. But those that we've lost will always be with us... in our hearts, our words... our deeds. And one day, in heaven... through the gift of a little child born 2,000 years ago. It's faith that gets you through the hard times. Faith in God and in family. Warts and all.


Ciara: Who has warts?

Hope: Oh!


Hope: Honey, Aunt Maggie just means none of us are perfect.

Julie: In fact, sometimes, we drive each other crazy.


Maggie: More than anything, we love you and we're here for you. And each one of you... no matter how far or how near, all the days of our lives. Happy holidays. Happy holidays!

Peace on earth goodwill to man
