JAX: ALL RIGHT, WELL,
HAVE A GOOD FLIGHT.
MERRY CHRISTMAS.
YOU HAVE A REPRIEVE.
MY PARENTS WON'T BE HERE TILL
TOMORROW.
DAD SAYS HE WANTED TO MAKE SURE
THAT WE ENJOY THE HOLIDAYS
ALONE.
THIS LOOKS GREAT.
ALEXIS: I THINK WE NEED MORE,
MORE, MORE.
I THINK IT'S TOO SPARSE.
JAX: WHAT ARE YOU, CRAZY?
YOU'VE ALREADY DECORATED THIS
TO THE BREAKING POINT.
ALEXIS: WELL, THAT'S
THE WHOLE POINT.
YOUR PARENTS WERE EXPECTING YOU,
ME, BOBBIE, AND JERRY.
THEY'RE NOT GOING TO GET
EVERYONE, SO THEY'RE GOING
TO GET MORE BELLS,ORE RIBBONS,
MORE ORNAMENTS, MORE LIGHTS.
ISN'T THAT THE WAY CHRISTMAS IS
SUPPOSED TO LOOK?
JAX: YOU KNOW, YOU REALLY ARE
THE MOST INCREDIBLE
DAUGHTER-IN-LAW THAT ANY PARENTS
COULD EVER WANT.
ALEXIS: EVEN THOUGH I CHEAT
ON THEIR SON EVERY HANCE I GET?
JAX: NOBODY'S PERFECT.
I WAS WONDERING -- WHAT ARE
THESE TAGS THAT YOU HAVE
WITHOUT WRITING?
ALEXIS: OH, YEAH.
SEE, THAT'S COLOR CODING.
I PUT THEM ON EACH GIFT.
THEREFORE I KNOW WHAT IS
IN EVERY SINGLE GIFT.
WHAT HAPPENED WITH YOUR GIFT
WITH CHLOE?
JAX: I ALREADY GAVE IT
TO HER.
ALEXIS: SHE DIDN'T LIKE IT?
JAX: NO, SHE LIKED IT.
BUT THEN SHE GAVE ME AY PRESENT,
AND I BLEW IT.

TAMMY: HERE WE GO.
NED: THANK YOU, TAMMY.
TAMMY: YOU'RE WELCOME.
NED: SO, ARE YOU CLOSING
EARLY FOR CHRISTMAS EVE?
TAMMY: NO, I'M NOT, ACTUALLY.
I'VE GOT NOTHING SPECIAL TO DO,
SO I'M GOING TO STAY OPEN LATE
AND PLAYVERY SINGLE CHRISTMAS
CAROL ON THE JUKEBOX.
NED: GOOD FOR YOU.
BETTER HURRY.
CHLOE: OH, NO, THANKS.
NED: EXCUSE ME?
CHLOE: I JUST -- I DON'T WANT
ANY.
NED: NO CHOCOLATE CAKE?
ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?
WHAT'S WRONG?
CHLOE: JAX AND I EXCHANGED
CHRISTMAS PRESENTS.
NED: DON'T TELL ME.
HE GAVE YOU A BIG, FLASHY PIECE
OF JEWELRY, AND YOU DON'T HAVE
THE HEART TO TELL HIM THAT
YOU HATE IT.
CHLOE: NO.
HIS -- HIS GIFT WAS WONDERFUL.
MINE, ON THE OTHER HAND,
PROBABLY RUINED HIS HOLIDAY.
NED: WHY?
CHLOE: I MANAGED TO GIVE HIM
THE PERFECT GIFT TO REMIND HIM
OF BRENDA.

SINGER: MAY YOUR DAYS
BE MERRY AND BRIGHT
AND MAY ALL YOUR CHRISTMASES

EMILY: CAN WE PLEASE GO?
I DON'T WANT TO BE LATE
FOR THE PARTY.
JUAN: OH -- I'M --
I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE UNTIL
I SEE IT.
EMILY: NO.
JUAN: SUIT YOUSELF.
EMILY WAIT --
JUAN: THE HAT FIRST.
THE HAT FIRST.
EMILY: FINE.
THERE.
JUAN: NOW THE COAT.
EMILY: THE COAT.
ARE YOU HAPPY?
JUAN: VERY.
EMILY: CAN WE GO NOW?
MS. HARDY DOESN'T LIKE IT WHEN
HER ELVES ARE LATE.
JUAN: NOT BEFORE I GIVE
YOU A CHRISTMAS PRESENT.
SINGER: I'M
DREAMIN'
OF A WHITE
JUAN: MERRY CHRISTMAS,
GIRLFRIEND.

TONY: THERE YOU GO.
BOBBIE: SHOULDN'T YOU BE
GETTING READY?
TONY: FOR WHAT?
BOBBIE: YOU HAVE BEEN
OFFICIALLY REINSTATED
AS THE GENERAL HOSPITAL SANTA
CLAUS.
TONY: YOU'RE -- YOU'RE
KIDDING.
BOBBIE: NO.
EVERYBODY AGREED THAT YOU'RE
THE BEST SANTA THEY'D EVER SEEN,
SO YOUR RED SUIT IS HANGING
IN YOUR LOCKER.
TONY: THANK YOU.
I BETTER GO WARM UP MY "HO,
HO, HOs."
EXCUSE ME.
BOBBIE: HI.
YOU'RE A LITTLE EARLY
FOR THE PARTY.

SONNY: I'M HERE TO SEE STEFAN
CASSADINE ABOUT MY DONATION
TO STONE'S WING.
BOBBIE: I REALLY THINK IT'S
WONDERFUL THE WAY YOU DO THAT
EVERY YEAR, SONNY.
YOU HELP A LOT OF PEOPLE.
SONNY CORINTHOS IS HERE.
OH, MY GOODNESS.
EXCUSE ME.
I GOT TO DELIVER THIS TO SANTA.
CARLY: LOOK, MICHAEL.
IT'S UNCLE SONNY.
SONNY: HEY, MICHAEL.
MERRY CHRISTMAS.
BOY --
CARLY: IS JASON IN
THE HOSPITAL?
SONNY: YOU'RE LOOKING --
YOU'RE LOOKING SHARP THERE.
HEY, MICHAEL.
TOO BAD YOUR DAD CAN'T SEE
YOU ALL DECKED OUT LIKE THAT.
MICHAEL: BABY.

[KNOCK ON DOOR]
LUKE: BEAT IT.
ELIZABETH: SORRY.
DIDN'T MEAN TO DISTURB YOU.
I'M JUST GOING TO LEAVE A LITTLE
SOMETHING BY THE DOOR, OK?
LUKE: ELIZABETH, HI.
SORRY, I WAS JOKING.
ELIZABETH: OH.
LUKE: COME IN.
ELIZABETH: GUESS YOU WEREN'T
EXPECTING ME, HUH?
LUKE: NO, I WASN'T EXPECTING
ANYBODY.
IT WAS A NICE SURPRISE.
ELIZABETH: I BAKED YOU SOME
BROWNIES.
LUKE: YOUR SPECIALTY,
I REMEMBER.
THANK YOU.
ELIZABETH: BET YOU I CAN MAKE
YOU LAUGH.
LUKE: WELL, THAT'D BE QUITE
A FEAT.
GO FOR IT.
ELIZABETH: TA-DA!
LUKE: I LIKE THE SOCKS.
ELIZABETH: OH, THANKS.
LUKE: WHAT, DID YOU JOIN
A CULT, OR --
YOU'RE WORKING THE
G.H. CHRISTMAS BASH, AREN'T YOU?
ELIZABETH: ANY CHANCE YOU'D
WANT TO BE MY DATE?
LUKE: THAT'S ABOUT
THE SWEETEST OFFER I'VE HAD THIS
MILLENNIUM, BUT I'M NOT REAL
GOOD WITH CHRISTMAS PARTIES.
ELIZABETH: YEAH,
ESPECIALLY NOT THIS YEAR.
I UNDERSTAND.
LUKE: I IMAGINE YOU DO.
ELIZABETH: I THOUGHT ABOUT
STAYING HOME.
I MEAN, WHY GO PLASTER A SMILE
ON YOUR FACE AND PRETEND TO BE
ALL JOLLY WHEN ALL I CAN THINK
ABOUT IS LUCKY NOT BEING THERE.
I'M STILL NOT SURE IF I CAN PULL
IT OFF.
LUKE: YOU CAN.
I HAVE EVERY CONFIDENCE.
YOU KNOW, YOU MADE MY SON HAPPY
WHEN NOTHING AND NOBODY COULD.
AND HE ALWAYS SAID YOU WERE
THE SMARTEST, MOST COURAGEOUS
PERSON HE KNEW.
I MEAN, THIS'LL BE NOTHING.
YOU -- YOU CAN DO THIS.
ELIZABETH: I MISS HIM
SO MUCH.
SOMETIMES I SWEAR IT STILL HURTS
TO BREATHE.
LUKE: I KNOW.
ELIZABETH: WELL, GUESS I'D
BETTER GET TO THE HOSPITAL.
LUKE: YOU MAKE A FINE ELF.
ELIZABETH: OH, PLEASE.
LUKE: YOU DO.
ELIZABETH: PLEASE.
LUKE: YOU SPREAD JOY
AND SUNSHINE, HAPPINESS.
AND I -- I REALLY APPRECIATE
THESE.
THANK YOU FOR THINKING OF ME.
ELIZABETH: I ALWAYS DO,
YOU KNOW.
LUKE: BACK AT YOU.
ELIZABETH: WELL,
MERRY CHRISTMAS.
LUKE: YOU, TOO.
LUKE: MERRY CHRISTMAS,
COWBOY.

MAC: HI.
MERRY CHRISTMAS.
FELICIA: HELLO. HI.
MAC: ROOM UNDER THE TREE
FOR THESE?
FELICIA: YEAH, I THINK
YOU CAN SQUEEZE THEM IN DOWN
THERE.
MAC: OK.
THERE WE GO.
FELICIA: GOD, I'M GLAD YOU'RE
HOME.
MAC: AND I AM GLAD YOU'RE
HERE.
FELICIA: WELL, I FOUND IT.
HERE'S THE NUMBER.
I WAS MAKING RESERVATIONS
FOR THE FLIGHTS HOME
FOR THE GIRLS.
MAC: HEY, WAIT -- WAIT
A SECOND.
WAIT A SECOND.
YOU KNOW, I THINK I MIGHT HAVE
A CHRISTMAS PRESENT THAT MIGHT
TAKE YOUR MIND OFF MISSING
THE GIRLS.
FELICIA: YEAH, WELL, I KNOW,
BUT I REALLY WANT THEM O COME
HOME.
MAC: AT LEAST TAKE A LOOK.
AT LEAST TAKE A LOOK.
HERE.
GEORGIE: SURPRISE!
MAXIE: SURPRISE!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!
FELICIA: HELLO!
HELLO.
OH, MAXIE.
MAXIE: I MISSED YOU SO MUCH.
FELICIA: MISSED YOU, TOO.
GIVE ME A HUG.
MAXIE: IT'S SO GOOD TO SEE
YOU.
FELICIA: HOLD ME.
I LOVE YOU.
OH, IT'S SO GOOD TO HUG YOU.
MAXIE: I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.
FELICIA: ME, TOO.

FAISON: I HAVE A CHRISTMAS
PRESENT FOR THE COMMISSIONER
AND MRS. SCORPIO, AND IT'S
ON YOU TO MAKE SURE THEY RECEIVE
IT IN TIME.

CHLOE: JAX HAS ALWAYS BEEN
VERY OPEN WITH ME ABOUT HOW MUCH
HE LOVED BRENDA.
BUT UNTIL HE UNWRAPPED THAT GIFT
YESTERDAY, I HAD NO IDEA HOW
MUCH OF A PRESENCE SHE STILL IS
IN HIS LIFE.
NED: WELL, I THINK YOU JUST
CAUGHT HIM OFF GUARD.
GRIEF IS LIKE THAT.
CHLOE: YOU DIDN'T SEE
HIS FACE, NED.
I MEAN, HIS FEELINGS FOR HER ARE
SO POWERFUL.
I DON'T WANT TO GET IN THE WAY
OF THAT.
NED: SO, WHAT ARE
YOU SUGGESTING?
CHLOE: MAYBE THAT WE TAKE
A BREAK FROM EACH OTHER.
NED: IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT?
CHLOE: I CAN'T COMPETE
WITH A MEMORY.
IF HE NEEDS TIME, THEN I WANT
TO GIVE HIM TIME.
I DON'T WANT TO PUSH MYSELF
ON HIM.
NED: FINE.
THEN I'LL DO IT FOR YOU.
SHALL WE?
CHLOE: WHAT --
NED, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
NED: YOU'LL SEE.
CHLOE: NED --
NED: COME ON.
PUT THIS ON.
TAGGERT: HEY.
CHLOE: HI, THERE.
MERRY CHRISTMAS.
TAGGERT: MERRY CHRISTMAS.
NED: MERRY CHRISTMAS,
TAGGERT. JUAN: IS IT OK HERE?
TAMMY: YEAH.
EMILY: WE CAN ALSO PUT IT
RIGHT LIKE THIS --
TAMMY: YOU GUYS,
THAT'S ENOUGH.
IT'S GREAT RIGHT WHERE IT IS.
NOW, GO TO YOUR PARTY.
I DON'T WANT YOU TO BE LATE.
GO.
TAGGERT: HEY, HO, HO, HO.
MERRY CHRISTMAS.
JUAN: HEY, MERRY CHRISTMAS.
TAMMY: MERRY CHRISTMAS.
EMILY: HI.
TAGGERT: SO, YOU ALL PACKED,
READY FOR THE MOVE?
JUAN: NOT YET.
TAGGERT: WHY T?
JUAN: BECAUSE I HAVE
SOMETHING BETTER TO DO TONIGHT.
EMILY: WE'RE GOING
TO THE GENERAL HOSPITAL
CHRISTMAS PARTY.
JUAN: YOU'RE STILL GOING,
RIGHT?
I MEAN, UNLESS YOU'VE HAD
A CHANGE OF PLANS.
TAGGERT: YEAH, NO SUCH LUCK.
I'M ON MY WAY THERE RIGHT NOW.
EMILY: WELL, GOOD.
THEN WE CAN ALL GO TOGETHER.
YOU READY?
JUAN: GREAT.
ELVES AND LIEUTENANTS FIRST?
DARA: HEY.
HI.
EMILY: HI.
DARA: LISTEN, I AM SO GLAD
I CAUGHT UP WITH YOU.
WE NEED TO REVIEW YOUR TESTIMONY
FOR THE HELENA CASSADINE TRIAL.
TAGGERT: ON CHRISTMAS EVE?
DARA: JUSTICE WAITS
FOR NO HOLIDAYS.
TAGGERT: MM-HMM.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
JUAN: I THINK --
SHE'S GOING WITH US?
DARA: I AM? WHERE?
EMILY: THE GENERAL HOSPITAL
CHRISTMAS PARTY.
DARA: OH.
I HAVE TO GET BACK TO MY OFFICE.
EMILY: OH
TAGGERT: OH.
ON THIS HAND, WE HAVE HELENA
CASSADINE.
ON THIS HAND, WE HAVE MUSIC,
FOOD, LAUGHTER WITH LITTLE
CHILDREN, FRIENDS,
SANTA CLAUS --
DARA: OK, OK, I GOT
YOUR POINT.
WELL, CAN WE GO NOW?
I DON'T WANT TO MISS ANYTHING.
LET'S GO.

JAX: DO YOU REMEMBER THAT
LITTLE YACHT I USED TO KEEP
ON THE MANTELPIECE?
ALEXIS: VAGUELY.
WHY IS IT THAT THE MORE
ORNAMENTS YOU PUT ON THIS TREE,
THE MORE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE
TO PUT ON?
JAX: SOME LAW OF PHYSICS THAT
ESCAPES ME AT THE MOMENT.
ANYWAY, IT'S SORT OF A MEMENTO
OF ME AND BRENDA.
I MEAN, CHLOE HAD NO WAY
OF KNOWING THIS BECAUSE
THE YACHT WAS IN STORAGE BEFORE
I MET HER.
ALEXIS: SHE DIDN'T?
JAX: YEAH.
SHE GAVE ME A LITTLE SAILBOAT
TO COMMEMORATE ALL THE TIMES
THAT I TIPPED HER OVER.
I MEAN, ORDINARILY THIS WOULD
HAVE BEEN A FANTASTIC GIFT,
BUT SEEING IT WAS LIKE BEING
BLINDSIDED.
I MEAN, BEFORE I COULD RECOVER,
THE DAMAGE WAS DONE.
ALEXIS: WELL, DID YOU EXPLAIN
IT TO HER?
JAX: YEAH, OF COURSE.
I MEAN, YOU KNOW, I TRIED.
ALEXIS: POOR CHLOE.
SHE MUST BE UPSET.
JAX: YEAH.
I MEAN, ALL SHE WANTED TO DO WAS
MAKE ME HAPPY, AND NOW SHE'S
CERTAIN THAT SHE RUINED
MY HOLIDAY.
ALEXIS: YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK
THE PROBLEM IS, IF YOU DON'T
MIND MY SAYING SO?
I THINK THE TWO OF YOU NEED
TO GO OFF SOMEWHERE AND RELAX
TOGETHER.
YOU'RE ALWAYS SNEAKING AROUND,
PRETENDING THAT YOU ARE SOMEBODY
YOU'RE NOT OR YOU DON'T FEEL
WHAT YOU REALLY FEEL.
YOU KNOW, CONSEQUENTLY,
YOU'RE GOING TO BE OVERSENSITIVE
TO THINGS THAT HURT PEOPLE
INSTEAD OF WRESTLING
THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM RIGHT
TO THE GROUND, SO TO SPEAK.
JAX: WELL, I'M SURE YOU JUST
GAVE ME GOOD ADVICE.
ALEXIS: I REALLY HAVE NO IDEA
WHAT I'VE JUST SAID, AND I HAVE
GREAT CONFIDENCE THAT YOU'LL BE
ABLE TO FIGURE IT OUT.
JAX: OK.
ALEXIS: YOU HAVE IMPECCABLE
INSTINCTS.
JAX: WELL, THANK YOU.
ALEXIS: HMM.
JAX: HMM.
ALEXIS: NOW, WILL YOU DO ME
A FAVOR?
MAKE YOURSELF USEFUL AND FIND
A HOME FOR RUDOLPH.
JAX: OK.

AMY: HEY, EVERYBODY.

[BAND PLAYS "JINGLE BELLS"]

LUKE: LAURA'S RENTING OUT
ROOMS?
THAT'S NUTS.
IF SHE NEEDS MONEY, WHY DOESN'T
SHE JUST COME TO ME?
ROY: WELL, I GOT
THE IMPRESSION IT WAS MORE ABOUT
HER WANTING TO BE INDEPENDENT.
LUKE: WHAT'D YOU THINK
OF THE HOUSE?
ROY: I LIKED IT.
LUKE: YEAH, MAN, THE PLACE I
CURSED.
IT'S TOO BIG.
IT'S TOO NOISY.
IT'S FULL OF GHOSTS.
ON ALTERNATE THURSDAYS
THE TOILETS ALWAYS FLOOD OVER.
THE KITCHEN IS COLD AS HELL ALL
THE TIME.
THERE'S THE SMELL OF DOG PEE
IN ONE CORNER OF THE LIVING
ROOM.
I TELL YOU, IT'S BUCKINGHAM
PALACE.
ROY: ARE YOU SAYING
I SHOULDN'T MOVE IN, LUKE?
LUKE: THAT'S UP TO YOU.
ROY: WELL, YOU KNOW, IT --
IT HAD A NICE FEELING TO IT.
IT MAY NOT BE YOURS ANYMORE,
BUT IT'S STILL HOME TO LAURA
AND YOUR LITTLE GIRL.
LUKE: DID YOU MEET LULU?
ROY: YEP.
I HAD THE PLEASURE.
LUKE: YOU KNOW, MAYBE IT
WOULDN'T BE A BAD IDEA
IF YOU DID LIVE THERE.
IN CASE ANYTHING WENT WRONG,
YOU COULD KEEP AN EYE ON THINGS.
ROY: SHOULD I TAKE THAT
AS A QUALIFIED YOU DON'T MIND?
LUKE: NO, THAT'S
AN UNQUALIFIED I DON'T MIND.
MY BABY'S GORGEOUS, ISN'T SHE?
ROY: OH, MAN, SHE'S A GEM.
SHE'S A LITTLE ANGEL.
AND I'LL BET SHE'S MISSING
HER BIG BROTHER SOMETHING FIERCE
TONIGHT.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, MAN.
LUKE: YOU, TOO.

MIKE: DINNER AT THE
P.C. GRILL.
TAMMY: MM-HMM.
MIKE: TAMMY, THAT'S GREAT.
TAMMY: THANK YOU.
AND THE DINNER -- IT'S FOR ANY
NIGHT OF YOUR CHOICE.
SO, HOW ABOUT THIS ONE?
MIKE: LISTEN, I --
I NEVER EAT IN RESTAURANTS
ON CHRISTMAS EVE.
TAMMY: REALLY?
WHY IS THAT?
MIKE: BECAUSE I'M A FIRM
BELIEVER THAT PEOPLE SHOULDN'T
BE WORKING ON SUCH A SPECIAL
NIGHT, AND I DO EVERYTHING
IN MY POWER TO MAKE SURE THAT
THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN.
IF YOU DON'T GET IT,
THAT'S A HINT.
TAMMY: WELL, COULD YOU WAIT
UNTIL I CLEAN UP?
MIKE: I'LL EVEN BE
A GENTLEMAN AND I'LL HELP.
TAMMY: COME ON, LET'S GO.
[MIKE HUMS "DECK THE HALLS"]

JAX: HEY.
NED: HEY.
JAX: COME ON IN.
WE WEREN'T EXPECTING
YOU FOR HOURS.
NED: YEAH, WELL, WE FINISHED
OUR SHOPPING EARLY.
ALEXIS: MERRY CHRISTMAS.
NED: MERRY CHRISTMAS.
CHLOE: WE PROBABLY WON'T STAY
TOO LONG.
JAX: THAT'S OK.
I'M HAPPY TO SEE YOU.
ALEXIS: A WATCH.
A PURSE.
A NECKLACE.
NED: ALEXIS --
ALEXIS: A PUPPY.
A CAR.
NED: ALEXIS, I'M NOT GOING
TO TELL YOU WHAT I BOUGHT
YOU FOR CHRISTMAS.
ALEXIS: PLEASE.
NED: STOP ASKING.
ALEXIS: A HINT?
NED: IT'LL MAKE YOU VERY,
VERY HAPPY.
ALEXIS: OH, GOOD.
JAX: SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK
OF THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS?
CHLOE: LOVE THEM.
NED: ARE YOU SURE YOU HAVE
ENOUGH?
I'M ACTUALLY DETECTING A BALD
SPOT RIGHT OVER THERE NEAR
THE WINDOW.
JAX: THAT WAS ALEXIS.
SHE BOUGHT EVERY SINGLE
CHRISTMAS DECORATION
IN THE WHOLE OF PORT CHARLES.
ALEXIS: I'M JUST TRYING
TO MAKE A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS
FOR MY IN-LAWS.
NED: YOU KNOW WHAT?
ALEXIS: HMM?
NED: I'M FEELING VERY
DEPRESSED.
ALEXIS: WHY?
NED: WELL, BECAUSE ALL
WE HAVE AT OUR PLACE IS JUST ONE
LITTLE MINIATURE CHRISTMAS TREE
WITH A COUPLE OF BROKEN
CANDY CANES ON IT.
CHLOE: NED, YOU SAID
YOU WANTED TO KEEP IT SIMPLE.
NED: WELL, I LIED.
I'M CHANGING MY MIND, OK?
DO YOU THINK YOU COULD HELP ME
OUT AND DECORATE SINCE YOU HAVE
SUCH A FLAIR FOR IT?
ALEXIS: I DO, DON'T I?
I HAVE A FLAIR.
ACTUALLY, I HAVE A BOX --
NED: OH.
ALEXIS: OF LOTS OF THINGS
WE CAN JUST --
NED: GREAT. ALL RIGHT.
I'LL TAKE IT.
OK.
YES, I WILL TAKE IT.
ALEXIS: IT'S NOT THAT HEAVY.
IT'S NOT THAT HEAVY.
NED: MERRY CHRISTMAS.
THANK YOU.
JAX: WAIT A SECOND --
NED: MERRY CHRISTMAS.
CHLOE: I JUST WANTED T@ --
JAX: WE SHOULD PROBABLY --
CHLOE: UM, ME FIRST?
JAX: ABSOLUTELY.
CHLOE: OK.
IT WASN'T A COINCIDENCE THAT NED
AND ALEXIS JUST RACED OUT
OF HERE.
JAX: NO KIDDING.
CHLOE: I TOLD NED ABOUT
THE GIFT I GAVE YOU, AND I THINK
THIS IS HIS SOLUTION TO GETTING
ME OVER HOW SORY I FEEL.
JAX: CHLOE, IT'S OK.
I MEAN, THE GIFT THAT YOU GAVE
ME WAS A VERY THOUGHTFUL
AND BEAUTIFUL GIFT.
I MEAN, THERE WAS NO WAY
YOU COULD HAVE KNOWN WHAT THAT
TOY BOAT WOULD REPRESENT TO ME.
CHLOE: WELL, LOVING BRENDA IS
A PART OF WHO YOU ARE, AND IT IS
A BEAUTIFUL AND VERY TENDER
PART.
AND IF YOU NEED SOME TIME TO GET
OVER THOSE FEELINGS,
I UNDERSTAND.
JAX: MEANING WHAT?
CHLOE: MEANING
THAT I'M WILLING TO BACK OFF.
I CAN GIVE YOU TIME AND SPACE
AND WHATEVER YOU NEED.
JAX: I WILL NEVER STOP HAVING
FEELINGS FOR BRENDA, OK?
BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN I'M GOING
TO USE THAT AS AN EXCUSE
TO AVOID LIVING MY LIFE.
BESIDES, I NEVER FIGHT FATE.
CHLOE: FATE?
JAX: YEAH.
AFTER BRENDA DIED, I WAS
SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING LEAVING
PORT CHARLES.
BUT I STAYED.
FATE OR COINCIDENCE?
CHLOE: I COULD HAVE GIVEN
LILA'S LOVE LETTERS TO FELICIAAND STAYED BEHIND IN EUROPE,
BUT INSTEAD I CAME HERE.
JAX: YOU KNOW, FATE
OR COINCIDENCE, IT DOESN'T
MATTER.
WHAT'S IMPORTANT NOW
IS TO NOT GET IN THE WAY
OF THAT.
CHLOE: I'M HAPPY I'M HERE.
JAX: I'M HAPPY YOU'RE HERE.
YOU WORE YOUR BRACELET.
CHLOE: YEAH.
JAX, I LOVE IT.
YOU KNOW, IT REMINDS ME THAT
DREAMS COME TRUE.

[DAVE PLAYS "SILENT NIGHT"]

ALAN: "AND SO MARY'S TIME
TO DELIVER CAME, AND SHE GAVE
BIRTH TO HER FIRST-BORN SON
AND WRAPPED HIM IN BANDS
OF CLOTH AND LAID HIM
IN A MANGER BECAUSE THERE WAS
NO PLACE FOR THEM IN THE INN.
IN THAT REGION, THERE WERE
SHEPHERDS LIVING IN THE FIELDS,
KEEPING WATCH OVER THEIR FLOCK
BY NIGHT.
AN ANGEL OF THE LORD APPEARED
BEFORE THEM AND THE GLORY
OF THE LORD SHONE AROUND THEM,
AND THEY WERE VERY MUCH AFRAID.
BUT THE ANGEL SAID TO THEM,
'FEAR NOT, FOR I BRING YOU GOOD
NEWS OF GREAT JOY FOR ALL
PEOPLE.
TO YOU IS BORN THIS DAY
IN BETHLEHEM A SAVIOR WHO IS
THE MESSIAH, THE LORD.
THIS WILL BE A SIGN TOOU.
YOU WILL FIND THE CHIL
IN BANDS OF CLOTH AND LYING
IN A MANGER.'
AND SUDDENLY THERE WAS
WITH THE ANGEL A MULTITUDE
OF HEAVENLY HOSTS, PRAISING GOD
AND SAYING, 'GLORY TO GOD
IN THE HIGHEST HEAVEN AND PEACE
ON EARTH TO ALL HE FAVORS.'"
AND NOW IT IS MY PRIVILEGE
TO TURN THE FESTIVITIES OVER
TO OUR FRIEND FROM THE NORTH,
SANTA CLAUS.
[CHEERS and APPLAUSE]

I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT JASON
DIDN'T TELL ME.
I MEAN, IT'S LIKE THEY LIED.

AMANDA: ALAN, YOUR RENDITION
THE CHRISTMAS STORY WAS JUST
AS POIGNANT AS EVER.

CLUB MEETINGS.
I HOPE YOU HAVEN'T LOST
INTEREST.

THING.
FELICIA: NO, I DIDN'T ESCAPE.
I WAS RESCUED.
LUCY: OH.
WELL, MAC, I'M SURE YOU WERE
ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL AS USUAL,
BUT I'M SURE LUKE DIDN'T JUST
STAND BY AND DO NOTHING.
FELICIA: I REALLY DON'T THINK
WE SHOULD TALK ABOUT THIS NOW.
COME ON, IT'S CHRISTMAS.
SCOTT: WHY TALK ABOUT THIS
KIND OF STUFF RIGHT NOW,
YOU KNOW.
AS YOU SAY ALL THE TIME,
ONLY TALK ABOUT GOOD THINGS.

LUCY: WOW.

RIGHT.
OH, OH. AMY.

I WANT TO GET A PICTURE OF ALL
OF US GIRLS.

FELICIA: SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD
IDEA.
LUCY: TOGETHER.
TO SAVE FOR POSTERITY
FOR THE MILLENNIUM.
OK, AMY -- AND TRY AND FOCUS

BOBBIE: HI.

FOR YOU --
CARLY: YOU KNOW WHAT I REALLY
NEED FROM YOU, MAMA, RIGHT NOW,
IS FOR YOU TO JUST -- JUST WISH
ME A MERRY CHRISTMAS.
BOBBIE: HONEY, THAT GOES(
WITHOUT SAYING.

ALAN: DID YOU HAVE ANY IDEA?
MONICA: OF COURSE NOT.
ALAN: WELL, MAYBE I SHOULD
SPEAK TO HIM.
MONICA: WHY DON'T YOU TAKE
EDWARD ALONG WITH YOU?
THAT'LL REALLY HELP
THE SITUATION.
ALAN: MONICA, JASON IS STILL
OUR SON, AND HE MUST BE TOLD
THAT THAT KIND OF BEHAVIOR IS
INAPPROPRIATE.
EDWARD: FOR GOD'S SAKE,
ALAN, IF YOU DIDN'T NOTICE THAT
THAT CASSADINE BOY PROVOKED HIM,
WELL, I CERTAINLY DID.
MONICA: EXCUSE ME.
LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT.
YOU ARE ON JASON'S SIDE?
EDWARD:
AS HE ISN'T ASSAULTING ONE
OF US.
TONY: TELL ME -- WHAT'S
YOUR NAME AGAIN, LITTE BOY?

JUST FINE.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, MY SWEET.

STEFAN: NIKOLAS,
I UNDERSTAND YOU WERE TRYING
TO PROTECT YOUR FRIEND, BUT IT
WASN'T THE BEST WAY.
NIKOLAS: WELL, I'M NOT
FINISHED YET.
SOMEHOW I'M GOING TO MAKE
ELIZABETH SEE HOW WRONG SHE IS.

["HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY
LITTLE CHRISTMAS" PLAYS]

>> ON THE NEXT
"GENERAL HOSPITAL" --

JASON: THAT NIGHT WE WERE
DANCING, SOMETHING HAPPENED.

STEFAN: THERE ARE BETTER WAYS
TO LIVE YOUR LIFE THAN REACHING
FOR SOMETHING YOU MAY NEVER
HAVE.

FROM.

FAISON: YOU'RE AFRAID I'M
GOING TO TELL YOUR HUSBAND WHAT
HAPPENED BETWEEN YOU
AND SPENCER.
