Maggie: Where is everybody?
Victor: I told them to come a little later.
Maggie: You did? Why?
Victor: Because I have a surprise for you.
Roman: Merry Christmas! Bye-bye.
Marlena: Oh, my. And who else but Sami's daughter would ask Santa Claus to make a stop for her on rodeo drive?
Roman: Exactly. [Laughs]
Roman: I sure am glad Lucas made it out there for the holidays. I know Sami was pretty lonely after will and Ari left.
Marlena: Yeah, well, I'm sure that's true, but you know what? Will is exactly where he belongs... back in Salem with Sonny.
Will: I just need to talk to Paul one more time, Zoe. He's put up these walls, but I think I can break them down. I think I can make this piece really great if you just give me a short extension.
Sonny: I realize it's Christmas eve, but I have put every last dime and more into this new club. I need it up and running ASAP!
Eric: [Laughs] I wanted to get you a tree, but the manager suggested a potted plant. Not that it will compete with that.
Serena: Mm, you'll never guess where it came from. Your friend Nicole.
Nicole: Oh, buzz off, Melanie. There's no way I'm spending one more Christmas eve alone watching the Yule log on titan TV.
Daniel: And what sound does this animal make?
Parker: It goes, "moo."
Melanie: Oh, Parker, do-- do camels--do they moo?
[Knock at door]
Melanie: They--you--I'll get that and you help with--
Daniel: I'm working on it. Thanks for your help.
Melanie: Yeah, of course, no, always!
Melanie: Oh... fantastic. Oh, of course, well, 'tis the season, bitch.
Hope: I'm glad you're here.
Aiden: Not as glad as I am.
Julie: You're home!
Abigail: Merry Christmas!
Julie: Merry Christmas! Everything's so festive! It's beautiful--
JJ: Let me take your coats.
Julie: Oh, JJ! JJ, I am so looking forward to meeting this lovely young lady that you're seeing now. Is she here yet?
Eve: Oh, God, Paige knows what I did. She has to.
Paige: I do know, Mom. How could you?
Serena: I appreciate all the trouble that Nicole went to... to apologize, but it really wasn't necessary. I mean, I don't care if she wants to study my internet footprint.
Eric: Well, I do. You know what? Your personal life is none of her business... and neither is mine. I'm moving on, and there's nothing she can do to stop me.
Nicole: You trash-talked me to your father, didn't you? When all I was trying to do was apologize to your friend Serena.
Melanie: No. I talked to Serena, and your story checked out, so I didn't say anything to my dad.
Nicole: Then why am I standing in the hallway? [Gasps] Parker!
Parker: Merry Christmas!
Nicole: Merry Chris--whoa! Merry Christmas. That's the best hug ever.
Daniel: Yeah, oh, I'm really glad you stopped by. Aw.
Caroline: Oh, it's beautiful. Did you make this?
Theresa: Yeah, well, you taught me how to needlepoint when I was little, so...
Caroline: Oh, yes. Yes, I remember, I remember.
Theresa: Yeah. Hey, well, don't tell anyone I made it, though, 'cause it will ruin my street cred.
Caroline: Your what? Street--what?
Theresa: Oh, it just means my reputation, you know, because people think I'm tough. [Laughs] But I thought-- I thought maybe you could use it for your bible.
Caroline: Aw. I will cherish it... just as I cherish you.
Maggie: Oh. Oh, Victor. Alice gave me this piece years ago to welcome me into the Horton family. Sarah--when she was a toddler, she knocked it off a shelf and just... it shattered to bits. I was sick about it. It was so rare, and they said it was irreplaceable.
Victor: There are very few things in this life that are irreplaceable. I almost lost you last year. And I'm never going to allow that to happen again.
Eve: Oh, Paige, honey, I'm so sorry.
Paige: How could you let me think grandpa Shane was really sick when he's going to be fine? It's because of JJ, isn't it?
Julie: Don't worry, JJ. I won't scare her off.
JJ: Paige isn't coming.
Julie: Well, why not? I so wanted to--to meet eve's daughter.
JJ: Well, just--Paige's, uh, grandfather's been sick. So she and eve went to los Angeles to go see him. And I don't know when she's coming back, if she does at all.
Julie: Oh, no.
Doug: Oh, JJ, I'm so sorry to hear that. Gee, I hope--I hope Shane is going to be all right.
Julie: Yeah. Oh, golly.
Abigail: JJ, wait. Why didn't you tell us that Paige might be staying in L.A.?
JJ: 'Cause it doesn't really matter. It's pretty much over between us anyway.
Jennifer: Honey, are you sure? Have you tried to call her?
JJ: M-Mom, I just--I really don't want to talk about it... okay? Not tonight, not ever.
Ciara: Look at them. Bet you five bucks your dad will get my mom under the mistletoe tonight.
Chase: You mean to kiss?
Chase: Where is the mistletoe, anyway?
Ciara: Come with me.
Abigail: I'll get it. [Gasps]
Ben: Merry Christmas.
Abigail: Merry Christmas, Santa.
Ben: Yeah, you know...
Abigail: You are lucky I answered the door.
Ben: Why is that? [Chuckles]
Ciara: There's the mistletoe. So, we on?
Melanie: Oh, man, it's fruitcake!
Nicole: I don't know, you know. I just saw it in the mall kiosk, and I--for some reason, it just screamed Melanie!
Melanie: Did it?
Melanie: That's--Dad, look, and there's--there's more than enough to share. So...
Nicole: Oh! Yeah, thanks. Oh, wow.
Melanie: Yeah. I felt like you could put that to good use.
Nicole: Yeah, you know it. And I'm not gonna share.
Melanie: Of course not.
Daniel: Okay, Parker. Let's get your coat. Time for us to go.
Melanie: Yep, on it. Got ya.
Melanie: Where's your hat, man? Let's go find your hat.
Nicole: Aw, are you going out?
Daniel: Uh, we're going to my mom's, yeah. Would you, um--would you like to join us?
Nicole: Uh, no, no, thank you. I mean, we agreed to wait until after the holidays to go public, and no offense, but my ideal first date is not going to be in Victor's living room.
Daniel: [Laughs] Okay. Well, I mean, you could just hang here until we get back. You know, I really could, uh, could use a favor.
Nicole: Sure. Whatever you need.
Will: Thank you, Zoe. I appreciate it.
[Keys jingling, door opens]
Sonny: Hey! Did you get any work done?
Will: Little bit. Subject's kind of hard to pin down, so it's slow going.
Sonny: Well, I know you can't say anything more about it, so I'm not gonna ask.
Will: How's everything going at the club?
Sonny: It's good. T's covering for me tonight, so we can spend Christmas eve with Ari and the family.
Will: That, um, might not be as simple as you think.
Theresa: You know what? I'm gonna make us some hot chocolate.
Caroline: Ooh, good!
Kayla: I'll help. You stay with grandma.
Caroline: Okay. Come on, honey, sit down.
Kayla: You know, um, your grandma taught me to needlepoint too.
Kayla: So I know how much effort it takes to make something like that.
Kayla: You know, I just don't understand how you can be so generous and kind and then...
Theresa: And then?
Kayla: And then I hear that you and Anne Milbauer tried to, uh, use the hiring freeze to keep Melanie Jonas from getting her old job back.
Theresa: Yeah, well, isn't there a hiring freeze?
Kayla: You know, why don't you do me and yourself a favor and just try to get along with people? You know, Melanie is actually a really nice girl.
Kayla: And there's no reason that the two of you can't be friends.
Maggie: I know it doesn't look like much to you, but... Victor, how did you know?
Victor: I have my ways. You can thank your daughters.
Brady: It's hard to compete in the gift-giving business around here. I mean, what do--what do you get the guy that has everything?
Victor: Brady, you know very well that you've given us the best Christmas gift of all.
Maggie: Brady, we're so proud of you. We know how very hard you worked to get yourself clean and sober.
Brady: I know how very hard you worked to help me get there.
Adrienne: Merry Christmas. Hi.
Victor: Don't you look lovely.
Maggie: Merry Christmas to you.
Adrienne: Oh, gosh, thank you. Merry Christmas.
Maggie: Hi, darling.
Adrienne: Are Will and Sonny here yet?
Sonny: What's wrong?
Will: We have to be at five places with a cranky toddler that has a cold. And my grandmas both expect her to be wearing the outfits that they got her, and then there's your mom and my mom and the outfits that they got her. They're not gonna fit next year!
Sonny: Okay, um... I'll go to my family's. You bring Ari to your family. And then we can meet up in the middle for mass. Then Ari can model her entire winter fashion line over the next week.
Will: I want us to do it together.
Sonny: Me too.
Will: You're right. Okay, um... this way we can get everything done without losing our minds. [Laughs] What time do you want to meet for mass?
Sonny: I'll text you when the eggnog runs out.
Will: [Laughs] Guess I better go collect Ari. Um...
Sonny: Hey, will? I know things have been weird since you got back.
Will: Yeah. Look, I know. I-I never should have lied about getting fired. It's just... I was so ashamed... I understand now that a half-truth is just as bad as a lie. We'll get through this, okay?
Eve: Honey... look, I know it was an awful, terrible thing to do-- to ask Dr. Green to embellish the seriousness of your grandpa's condition, but, honey, look, I was--I was just trying to--
Paige: What, protect me?
Eve: Yes! Yes, I was, and I know you don't understand this, but you're my only daughter, sweetheart. And after what happened last time with JJ, I mean, the thought of him ever hurting you again, honey, I...
Paige: It's okay, Mom.
Eve: Is it?
Paige: Not really! But... I'm trying to work my way through this and find a way to forgive you, because... I haven't been completely honest with you either. JJ and I... we've been talking, and I think, or at least I hope, we'll get back together.
Eve: Are you saying that... JJ knows you're back here in Salem?
JJ: I'm sorry if I was rude earlier.
Jennifer: No, it's okay. You weren't. And I really didn't mean to push you about Paige. But even if you aren't together, can't you still be friends? You know, her family is in the middle of a crisis right now, and maybe she could use some support. I mean, what's the harm in calling her and wishing her a Merry Christmas?
JJ: I-I'm gonna go take a walk and think about it. I'll meet you before mass.
Doug: "And threw up the sash."
Doug: What's so funny?
Julie: Really, you will find it is worth the trip to Kathmandu if you want to lead a fully self-realized life. Surely, you've--you've thought about these things. How about you?
Jennifer: Ooh, Ben and Aiden might need some rescuing.
Hope: As if we could.
Jennifer: Speaking of a self-realized life, I am so happy that you met Aiden and that we are all here together like this... with no bloodshed.
Hope: I know. You know, cuz, it's kind of weird. Uh... I was so lonely last year. I never thought I'd spend the holidays with anyone else. But honestly, I have to say, it just--it feels...
Jennifer: What, it feels right?
Hope: Yeah, it does.
Hope: It really does. I mean, I won't say that it's perfect, but what I will say is that I think this new year, this whole new year is going to be absolutely amazing, not just for me and Aiden, but for all of us.
Hope: I love you, cuz.
Jennifer: I love you.
Hope: Merry Christmas.
Jennifer: Merry Christmas.
Hope: Merry Christmas.
Nicole: Oh, Santa. Apparently you don't rate in the Jonas household. What? I can't put these on a plate and be known as the woman who choked Santa... [Scoffs] Or his helper. Okay. All right, wait a minute. What... if I can pluck a chicken on live TV, I can cook, what, a dozen cookies? How hard can it be? Let's see, cookies, cookies, cookies, cookies.
Daniel: Stop. These are for kids. Come here.
Daniel: Look, I know this should go without saying, but when we get to Victor's can you not talk about Theresa to Brady?
Melanie: Oh, you don't--you don't think that'd be a good...
Daniel: No, I don't, not a good idea.
Melanie: Really, relax, the only person I'm gonna talk about Theresa to is Theresa.
Daniel: Okay, well, I know you and Brady are good friends, but I mean it when I say this... do not antagonize her.
Melanie: I'll leave her alone... as long as she stays out of my way.
Daniel: Oh, my gosh...
Melanie: Parker, come on.
Daniel: Come on, Parker, let's go.
Theresa: Aunt Kayla, my plan for dealing with Melanie Jonas is to just ignore her.
Kayla: Good girl.
Theresa: As long as she stays the hell away from me and Brady.
Eric: Happy holiday.
Kayla: Yeah, you too.
Eric: Aunt Kayla, you remember Serena?
Kayla: Of course I do. Listen, I'm sorry your plans didn't work out with your family, but thanks for joining us.
Serena: Oh, thank you for having me.
Abe: Ho ho ho!
Theo: Merry Christmas!
Kayla: Hey, Joey! Look who's here, Theo's here.
Marlena: Hi, Serena.
Roman: Hey, how are you?
Joey: Who are you?
Eric: Joey, this is my friend Serena. This is--Joey is Aunt Kayla's son.
Eric: And this is Theo and Abe.
Abe: Hello, nice to meet you.
Serena: Hi, very nice to meet you.
Eric: And that is my cousin Theresa.
Joey: Theo, you want to come see my new Legos?
Serena: May I see them too?
Theo: You're a girl.
Serena: I'm a girl who loves Legos.
Serena: [Laughs] Aw.
Caroline: Hi, how are you? Mwah. Thank you.
Marlena: Mm, good to see you!
Roman: Hey, Ma.
Brady: Hey! Welcome! Now it's time to get this party started.
Daniel: Yeah. Oh! There's your grandma! Go get her!
Brady: There he goes.
Daniel: He's off, man.
Maggie: Oh, no! Oh, no, the other part of my Christmas is here!
Victor: And now her day is complete.
Maggie: Aww. Oh. You look so cute. Come on, let's get this off.
Daniel: So do you have it?
Brady: I'm gonna go get it right now.
Adrienne: Oh, excuse me.
Maggie: Look at your sweater.
Adrienne: Hey, baby.
Sonny: Hey, sorry I'm late.
Adrienne: No, no, no. Um, aren't Will and Ari with you?
Sonny: Uh, well, Ari has a cough--she's kind of cranky. And will took her to see his family at the pub, and then we're going to meet in the square before mass.
Sonny: Well, I see where I I rate. "Oh."
Adrienne: Oh, no, honey. Oh, I'm thrilled to see you. Nothing could make me happier right now.
Sonny: Okay, let's go in.
Adrienne: Yeah, let's go in.
Melanie: Come here, Parker. Come here. What?
Daniel: If I could, uh, have everyone's attention, please. Um, when my parents chose a Godfather, I... I got a Godfather. And, uh, a lot of times it's just a figurehead position. But to you... I was always family.
Brady: Granddad, when we tracked down your father's fishing boat, we ran into a priest in nafplio. And he told us that your grandmother was basically like a mother to everybody in the village. He remembered one specific thing about her--that she never went anywhere without her--
Victor: Bible. [Chuckles] She used to read it to me every day when I was a little boy. I hated every minute of it. [Laughter] It wasn't until she was gone or it was gone that I appreciated what I really lost. That's the way it usually goes, doesn't it?
Brady: Usually, but, um... you haven't lost it.
Daniel: Come on. Don't be shy right now. Come on.
Victor: How did... how?
Brady: Ah, Daniel and I-- we... did a little digging... with a little help from Justin.
Victor: This was sold with the family's estate to pay my father's debts. It was impossible to track.
Brady: Granddad, if you've taught me anything... nothing's impossible. Playing hoops, Sam is number one.
Victor: It's my grandmother's writing.
Sonny: What does it say?
Victor: "Love bears all things."
Melanie: That was a pretty cool thing you and my dad did for Victor.
Brady: [Breathes deeply] I've been a pretty lousy grandson this past year. I owe it to him.
Melanie: Um, speaking... [Clears throat] Of owing people...
Melanie: What you did for me with the casino people and my job... if you didn't do that for me, I, um... I don't know where I would be here right now.
Brady: I'm pretty angry at Theresa.
Melanie: Yeah, no, just-- it's--she's not worth it.
Theresa: Look, I think-- I think I just want to take a walk before I go home. You know, maybe call my brother and my parents.
Caroline: Yes, well, please give my love to Shane. I'm happy that he's so much better.
Theresa: Yeah, me too. Merry Christmas.
Caroline: Merry Christmas to you.
Serena: I'm so glad that we got to meet. I'm a huge fan of your magazine pieces.
Will: Thank you. That really means a lot to me coming from another writer. Where has uncle Eric been hiding you this whole time?
Serena: Mm... I've been, uh, here and there. I feel very lucky that our paths have crossed again.
Victor: Thank you, Daniel.
Daniel: Thank you, it was our pleasure. Thank you.
Maggie: So we'll see you tomorrow.
Maggie: [Laughs] Yes.
Melanie: Thank you.
Maggie: Love you.
Daniel: Come on.
Melanie: I'm coming.
Maggie: [Chuckles] Cute.
Melanie: Ooh, hey, you know what? Um, I think I'm gonna walk, because I have a few more Christmas presents I maybe need to get.
Daniel: Yeah, but you're not going to get me one, okay? Because having you home is the best gift ever.
Melanie: I-- [Laughs]
Julie: So the wonderful thing about Bikram yoga is you practice it in 105 degrees.
Chase: Dad, can I have some punch?
Julie: You know, you kind of sweat your way...
Aiden: Yes, you may! Let me help so you don't spill.
Julie: It's a beautiful thing.
Ben: I like it.
Julie: You get a little slimy, of course, but it's--
Jennifer: Oh, Ben! I need someone tall to help me in the kitchen.
Ben: Uh, yeah, sure.
Abigail: Uh, what about me? I'll--
Jennifer: No, sorry, honey! Not tall enough!
Abigail: Okay, thanks, Mom.
Julie: Ben... what an improvement over DiMeras one and two, huh?
Abigail: Yes, Julie, he's--he's great.
Julie: So I'm gonna be rooting for you.
Abigail: Well, thank you. I really appreciate your support.
Julie: Well, darling, that's what families are for.
Aiden: There you go.
Chase: Thanks, Dad.
Aiden: All righty.
Hope: Were you persuaded into taking up yoga?
Aiden: No, no, no, no, no. But I've been persuaded of the importance of quiet time. Come with me.
Ciara: So, Grandpa, you know what you need to do.
Aiden: So you know I hate surprises.
Hope: Oh, do you?
Aiden: Yes, I do. So any chance you can give me a hint about my gift?
Hope: Oh, who said I bought you a gift?
Aiden: Well, I got you something. Yeah, no pressure.
Hope: No pressure.
Aiden: No pressure.
Doug: Excuse me, please. Julie has appointed me official family photographer for the day. And guess whose picture she wants me to take first.
Doug: All right.
Doug: All right, well, the light is very poor right there, so would you move a little this way, please?
Aiden: Over here?
Doug: Little bit more, little bit more, just a little bit-- let's see, let's see... oh, all right, that'll be good, that'll be good. Now, relax, but smile! Here we go.
[Camera shutter clicks]
Doug: Oh, it's perfect!
Ciara: Mommy... you and Aiden are under the mistletoe. You have to kiss him.
Aiden: Well, she is right.
Jennifer: Okay, everyone ready for mass? Hey, you two over there.
Doug: We'd like to go with you.
Aiden: Uh, did I just see you give Ciara $5?
Chase: [Sighs] She bet me five bucks that you would kiss hope under the mistletoe. It was a dumb bet to take.
Aiden: Ah, those kids.
Hope: Those kids.
Hope: I know. Was it awkward for you to kiss me in front of my dad?
Aiden: A little bit, little bit, but let me tell you something. I would go through 1,000 awkward moments just to give you a little kiss. Was it awkward for you?
Hope: I forgot he was even there.
JJ: I miss you so much. But after what I've done... it's better that we never see each other again.
Paige: I haven't spoken to JJ, not yet. I thought it was better we speak in person.
Eve: Mm, why?
Paige: When we were talking on the phone, I think I sent him some mixed messages, and... I-I just need to explain why I acted the way I did...
Paige: Including what you did to try and keep us apart.
Eve: What? But, honey, I--you know what? Listen... I do, I feel terrible about that, I do, sweetheart.
Paige: No, you don't.
Eve: Yeah, but--
Paige: You'd do it all over again because you think you're protecting me, but you're not!
Eve: Look, Paige, I--
Paige: But, you know-- and, you know, since it's Christmas Eve, I'm not gonna go barge in on JJ's family celebration. But tomorrow my Christmas present to JJ is going to be the truth.
Eve: Well, what do you think you're going to accomplish, honey?
Paige: Mom! You know I hated not being able to be honest with you, but... you have to understand! JJ and I will be together. And there's nothing that you or anyone else can do to get between us.
Kayla: Ooh, let me get that last little button there.
Kayla: There you go, mister. Oh, hey, Marlena.
Kayla: I didn't get a chance to talk to you before. How's John?
Marlena: I don't know. I haven't talked to him since before he left for Europe.
Kayla: I'm sorry.
Marlena: I know. I am too. Yeah, we've been in limbo for so long, I just... I don't know--I thought somehow things might be different, but... you know, the longer it goes on like this, the more I think that just might not happen. Come on, let's go.
Kayla: Let's go, bub.
Abe: Here we go.
Maggie: You're coming to church with us, yes?
Brady: Yeah. I'm gonna walk, though. I'm gonna clear my head a little bit.
Maggie: Okay. We'll see you soon?
Maggie: Love you.
Brady: Love you too.
Daniel: We're home.
Daniel: Oh...my... what is going on here?
Nicole: Do you think Santa would approve?
Daniel: Well, I know somebody who will.
Nicole: Ah, ha ha ha!
Daniel: You made these for Santa?
Nicole: And his merry elves. What you left for me to put out isn't fit for human consumption. Come on, go get a cookie. Go, Parker, go.
Daniel: Oh, well, I, uh-- I didn't know Santa was so particular. I also didn't know that you--you baked.
Nicole: [Laughs] Neither did I. I guess this is what they call a Christmas miracle.
Ben: Thanks for inviting me tonight.
Abigail: Yeah, of course. You sure you don't want to come to mass?
Ben: Oh, thank you, but... Santa really needs to get home.
Abigail: Okay. Are you afraid you're going to wind up next to Julie? Is that why?
Abigail: You know, she likes you, which kind of means you're in.
Ben: That's good to know. But Christmas is for family, and, uh... Merry Christmas, Abigail.
Abigail: Merry Christmas, Ben.
Kayla: Oh, in here, in here.
Aiden: All right, well, I better check on Ciara and Chase and...
Aiden: See what they're up to, okay?
Hope: Okay, yeah.
Aiden: All right.
Hope: Hey--oh, Merry Christmas, Kay!
Kayla: Merry Christmas.
Kayla: So are you still seeing Aiden?
Hope: Yeah, of course I am. Why?
Abe: Whoa! Hold up, hold up, hold up.
Hope: Oh, Theo! Merry Christmas, honey! Merry Christmas, Abe, Merry Christmas.
Abe: Hey, Merry Christmas.
Hope: Oh, so good to see you. You look so handsome.
Eve: [Sighs] Maybe I should warn JJ that Paige is in town. No. No, no. I cannot talk to him. He knows better than to cross me again.
Brady: Mel? What are you doing? I-I thought you were walking home with your dad and Parker?
Melanie: Yeah, no, I just-- uh, I just wanted some fresh air.
Brady: You mind if I join you?
Melanie: No, no.
Melanie: [Laughs] It's cold.
Brady: It's usually cold at Christmas.
Brady: You know, this time of year, it's... it's never been my favorite. But this year it's...
Melanie: It's kind of looking up.
Brady: It's looking up. It's not bad.
Melanie: You know, um, it's funny--uh, when I was in paris, you couldn't see any of the stars.
Brady: Well, they're out now. Making a wish?
Brady: Make one.
