Maxie: What are you doing here?
Felicia: The tree looks gorgeous.
Maxie: Georgie did all of the work. What do you want?
Felicia: We need to discuss what happened at the funeral yesterday.
Maxie: What's to discuss? I called you out, I'm glad I did it, and if I had to do it again, I would.
Skye: Hello, handsome.
Luke: Oh. Blaze.
Skye: I hear that you agreed to have the surgery.
Luke: So you've come to give me a proper sendoff?
Skye: I'm here to tell you that you have to pull through the surgery with flying colors, because when you do, I'll be waiting.
Tracy: Would you get away from my husband!
Clarice: I know, it's the third time I've dropped by today, but you have got to see this dress. You and Warren James will have plenty to talk about over cocktails tonight, and I have a feeling we'll be working together again very soon.
Kate: Wouldn't that be something?
Clarice: You've already made the daily tabs, Giselle's beside herself, and word's flying all over town that you'll be at club le maize tonight. That's an a-list party, Ms. Howard. You're back, and you're better than ever.
Kate: Yeah, back where I belong.
Sonny: Max, get in here!
Max: You got to save me.
Jason: What's wrong?
Max: Well, the boss isn't exactly in the charitable Christmas spirit right now.
Sonny: Max, get in here now!
Max: Boss --
Sonny: How come the walkways in the yard aren't shoveled off? How many times do I have to tell you?
Max: Well, well, actually, I -- I did shovel them and then it snowed again.
Sonny: Okay, you need to get somebody to shovel them right now. Do you understand?
Max: Absolutely. Excuse me.
Sonny: It's about time you cut your hair.
Jason: What's going on with you?
Tracy: I don't want you in here.
Luke: We were just talking, wife.
Skye: You're overreacting, as usual, Tracy.
Tracy: Get out.
Luke: Would you begrudge me a visit from a good friend?
Skye: I'd just like to stay for a little while until I get a chance to take Lila Rae to the hospital Christmas party.
Luke: Stay as long as you want.
Tracy: You waltzed into my family home, pretended to be a Quartermaine, then had the audacity to name your gangster baby after my mother! You are more than just a little responsible for the death of my brother, and you broke my father's heart. Do not think for a moment that I'm going to allow you a second of my time with my husband.
Luke: I want her to stay.
Skye: Now I'm leaving.
Luke: Don't let her run you off.
Skye: It's okay. I'll be waiting when you come back. So please don't get lost along the way, hmm?
Luke: That wasn't very nice, wife. It's Christmas Eve.
Tracy: And you don't give a damn about Christmas, hypocrite.
Luke: It could be my last night.
Tracy: Oh, please don't say that.
Luke: All I wanted was a few minutes to visit with an old friend.
Tracy: I was protecting you, Luke.
Luke: You're being selfish and mean-spirited, which means your conscience will probably kick in at any time.
Tracy: I don't have a conscience.
Alan: Ho, ho, ho, ho! Merry Christmas!
Jason: You're getting to see your kids at Christmas, right?
Sonny: Kristina's in Switzerland with her mother, and Sam and the boys will be there tomorrow.
Jason: Sounds good.
Sonny: You know, I just want to be able to see that the walkways, you know -- we all should be able to -- just in case there's a problem. I mean, you know, Kate's house is empty. Trevor can have access, and Johnny Zacchara could be using it as a staging area, you know.
Jason: Kate's not coming back?
Sonny: No. And I want to be able to see the walkways clearly just in case we send our guys in. You know, how many times do I have to remind Max? 20, 40? 50, 60?
Jason: You haven't heard from Kate at all?
Sonny: Just -- just a letter.
Jason: I mean, it's kind of sudden the way she left.
Sonny: Well, I mean, it was -- we both know it was going to happen eventually. It's -- it's -- it's the best thing that could've happened, and -- she's just not suited for this life.
Jason: Neither is Elizabeth.
Sonny: Then you know it's for the best, right?
Carly: Let's go, boys! Sorry for yelling in your ear. You have a merry Christmas, and I'll call you tomorrow. Okay, bye.
Michael: Mom, Morgan stole my spice cookie. Can I get another one?
Carly: Yes, you can. Of course you can.
Jax: I can't believe you had all these delivered to the hotel.
Carly: Boys, upstairs, upstairs! You can't see the presents. Go, go, go!
Jax: Oh, you'll thank us tomorrow.
Carly: He just said "whatever."
Jax: Yes. It's a cool word.
Carly: "A cool word." I'm trying to give him a magical Christmas, you know? That's not very nice of him.
Jax: Hey, he'll thank us one day, okay? Come here, we got to get these wrapped before we go to the party.
Carly: Yeah, whatever. We're already late for the party.
Carly: Oh. Oh, God.
Jax: Carly? Hey.
Alan: It's a good thing I read the Christmas story every year, because you need to hear it tonight.
Alan: Because it's about kindness and generosity of spirit, and maybe it'll help you find your heart again.
Tracy: I'm not worried about my heart; I'm worried about Luke's heart. Well, that's generous. Now you can leave.
Alan: No, no, no. True generosity is about giving without expecting anything in return.
Lulu: Hey, Dad. How you doing?
Luke: Hi, gumdrop.
Lulu: I want to visit with my dad.
Tracy: Of course, Lulu. See? I can be generous.
Alan: It doesn't count. Daughters trump stepmothers every time. Now, what you need is a good strong dose of Christmas.
Tracy: Okay, well -- um -- I'll be close at hand. Please remember, no food, no drink.
Alan: "And Joseph also went up from Galilee out of the city of Nazareth --"
Alan: "Unto Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem."
Lulu: Wow, she's really losing it.
Luke: Oh, it's stress.
Lulu: Did you hear about Georgie's funeral with what happened with Maxie and Felicia?
Luke: Yeah, Tracy told me. It sounds like it was ugly.
Lulu: I'm sorry that I yelled at you yesterday.
Luke: No. It's okay. In fact, I'm glad you did. You convinced me to go in, let them try this again, and you were right.
Jax: Are you okay?
Carly: Uh, yeah -- don't say I never fell for you.
Jax: Hey, that's not funny. What happened? Here you go.
Carly: I don't know. I might have been running around all morning. I haven't been feeling very well. Maybe I'm dehydrated. This will help.
Jax: You're not pregnant, are you? Are you pregnant?
Carly: No. No, I think it's just a touch of the flu.
Jax: You certainly are running a fever.
Michael: Mom, we're going to miss the hospital party.
Carly: You know what? Boys, you guys are going to have to go without me. You're going to go with Jax, okay? I'm not feeling very well.
Michael: Are you all right? What happened?
Jax: Well, she's fine. It's nothing serious.
Michael: Then maybe we should stay home.
Carly: No, no, I want you to go. I'll be fine.
Michael: The party's no fun without you.
Carly: Hey -- we got all these presents for the kids. You helped pick them out.
Michael: Yeah, but you're always joking and laughing and sneaking the kids extra candy.
Carly: You can joke and laugh with the kids and sneak them extra candy. Just don't let Ms. Sneed catch you. It's important for you to take these presents to the kids. It's no fun being in the hospital on Christmas.
Jax: How about I take the boys over there, we hand out as many presents as we can, we sneak as much candy to all the kids, and then we'll just skip the party and we'll come back?
Carly: That sounds like a great idea.
Michael: You going to be okay here by yourself?
Carly: Yes, I have all these guards that you hate so much, and you know what? The sooner you get to the party, the sooner you can come back and we'll spend Christmas together, okay?
Carly: All right.
Felicia: I'm sorry I hurt you. I shouldn't expect you to understand my reasons.
Maxie: You mean your excuses.
Felicia: I understand why you lashed out at me yesterday. But I still love you. I always will, as I will always love Georgie.
Maxie: If you can come home for Christmas, now that Georgie is dead, why couldn't you be here when she was alive? You know, every single year, she thought that you would come back and surprise us. Talk about an optimist -- she would even go out and buy you a present. And she would go to sleep imagining that when she woke up, you would be down here waiting for us.
Felicia: I wish I could've been.
Maxie: Georgie and I used to love Christmastime when you were home. The house was always full of love, and we thought we had the greatest mom in the whole world. But then again, we also used to believe in Santa Claus, so what can I say?
Mac: Georgie was a miracle. Look, we all lost her. We're all grieving. That's why we need to stick together. And that's why I asked Felicia to spend Christmas with us tonight.
Mac: Oh, sweetheart, please, I'm asking you -- I'm asking you to show some compassion for your mother, for Georgie's sake. We need Felicia tonight. And she needs us.
Luke: Tracy, I need you to do something for me. I want a Viking funeral.
Lulu: Dad --
Luke: No, listen, I'm serious. I want you to just lay me in a rowboat, set it aflame, and then shove me out into the harbor.
Tracy: That wouldn't be any fun unless you were alive.
Luke: All right, well -- then just cremate me and throw my ashes in the wind. Have a drink on me. Maybe some music.
Bobbie: Well, they're ready for you now.
Luke: Oh, great. They sent my favorite nurse.
Regina: It's time, Mr. Spencer. We need to take you to the O.R.
Kate: Sonny? Oh -- yeah, this is Kate Howard. That's fine. Tell the driver I'll be down in 10 minutes. Thank you.
Max: Kate. Hey, how are you doing? It's great to hear your voice.
Kate: You know, I'm glad that you picked up, because you're the person I want to speak to anyway. Could you do me a favor? Could you just go over to my house and see if I left any lights on?
Max: Yeah, sure, Kate.
Kate: Thank you, Max. And please, don't tell Sonny that I called.
Max: Are you -- are you sure?
Kate: I'm positive. He has way too much on his mind right now, and -- could you just wish him a merry Christmas? Just don't tell him it was from me.
Max: Okay, you got it.
Carly: Hey, Sonny.
Sonny: Hey. What's with the pajamas?
Carly: Oh, God, it's cold out there. Uh -- not feeling very well. Don't stand close to me.
Sonny: Yeah, you don't sound good.
Carly: It's just a little touch of the flu. It's not that bad.
Sonny: Have you seen a doctor?
Carly: No. You know, the boys will be back soon.
Sonny: Where'd they go?
Carly: They went to the hospital Christmas party. You going to stay here so you can give them their presents?
Sonny: Yeah, yeah. You want me to get you water? I don't know --
Carly: No, thanks. What's wrong?
Sonny: Uh -- nothing's wrong.
Carly: Why aren't you with Kate?
Sonny: Uh -- cause I -- I want to see my kids.
Carly: You guys had a fight. She left you -- on Christmas?
Leo: All right. Got a lot of work in front of us, people. Is everyone ready?
Regina: Ready, Doctor.
Andy: Yes, Doctor.
Leo: All right. How's the vitals, pressure?
Leo: Let's rock and roll, then. All right? Okay, the scalpel, please. Thank you. Thank you. Here we go.
Luke: Is this thing on?
Luke: Is this thing on?
Luke: The end is near. I face the final curtain. My friend, I'll say it clear and state my case, of which I'm certain. I have lived a life that's full. I traveled each and every highway -- and more, much more than this, I did it my way.
Luke: Regrets I've had a few but then again too few to mention I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption I planned each charted course each careful step along the byway and more much more than this I did it my my way I've loved I've laughed and cried I've had my fill my share of losing and now as tears subside I find it all oh, oh -- so amusing to think I did all that and may I say not in a shy way oh, no oh, no, not me I did it my way oh, what is a man? What has he got? If not himself then he has naught to say the things he truly feels and not e words of one who kneels the record shows I took the blows and did it my way.
Tracy: Ugh. Why don't you make yourself useful and fly over the O.R. and check on Luke for me?
Alan: I'm your conscience, not a ghost, and you should know that by now.
Tracy: You can't be my conscience, I don't have a conscience, and I was right to keep Skye away from Luke.
Alan: "And the angel said unto them, 'Fear not, for behold, I bring you tidings of great joy which shall be to all people.'"
Tracy: Please stop.
Alan: There is comfort here, Tracy, if you listen. "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior which is Christ the lord, and this shall be a sign. Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger."
Tracy: Oh -- is that the comforting part?
Alan: No. You need to think about family and children and hope. "And suddenly there was with the angel multitude of --"
Alan: "The heavenly host praising God and singing, 'glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, and good will toward men.'"
Tracy: I thought you went back on location.
Dillon: Yeah, I know. I changed my plans.
Tracy: Well, thank you, but there's really nothing you can do.
Dillon: I'll wait with you.
Tracy: I'm fine.
Dillon: Mom, aren't you scared? Because I am.
Tracy: We'll be okay. We'll be fine.
Alan: Tracy? Merry Christmas.
Jax: Merry Christmas.
Sonny: Merry Christmas, kids. Guess what -- brought some presents for you.
Jax: Oh, why don't you give your dad his present?
Michael: That's actually not a bad idea.
Jax: How are you feeling?
Carly: I'm better. Yeah. So? What'd I miss at the party?
Jax: Well, you know, Edward’s not doing too well, but he was happy to see Michael.
Carly: That's good.
Jax: Michael was great with the kids, too. He was really great.
Carly: I wish I'd been there.
Michael: So, do you want to open them now or later?
Sonny: Why don't we just -- let's just, you know, we'll do it now, right?
Sonny: All right. Let me see. This is for -- Morgan?
Sonny: Is that you? Let's see what we got. Whoa!
Michael: He found it in Hawaii.
Sonny: Let me hear -- oh, I hear it, I hear it, yeah. You know what I'm -- you know what I'm going to do with this? I'm going to put it in my office.
Michael: And these --
Michael: I've had these for a while.
Sonny: Oh this is -- these are great.
Michael: So we can grill next Father's Day.
Michael: I want you to teach me how to cook.
Sonny: I'll do that. Thank you for -- this is great.
Michael: I'm not asking Mom.
Michael: So, why did you bring our gifts here? I mean, aren't we going to go over to your house -- Christmas?
Sonny: Ah -- yeah, but see your mom's not feeling well, so she's going to need you to -- tomorrow, so we'll do it the day after.
Carly: You sure about that?
Sonny: I got, I got -- swamped. I got a lot of stuff I got to do, you know?
Michael: It's business.
Michael: We understand. It's okay.
Sonny: But you know what, though? We're going to -- I'll see you in a couple days, right?
Sonny: You guys have a merry Christmas. Dad will see you in a little while. Okay. Give me a hug. Come on. Love you guys, okay? Love you guys.
Michael: Love you, too.
Sonny: See ya, Jax.
Jax: See you later. Merry Christmas.
Sonny: Get that door for me there, Carly? Thank you. Whew!
Carly: Are you okay?
Sonny: Yeah. You need your rest. I'm fine.
Carly: You change your mind, you better call me.
Sonny: Yeah, yeah, I'm -- it's no problem.
Carly: Merry Christmas.
Sonny: Yeah, Merry Christmas.
Luke: Oh, oh, wait, wait, before I go --
Luke: There was this writer that I used to read and enjoy, the great Norman Mailer, and he -- he wrote, "Life is a gladiator arena for the soul where we can feel strengthened by those who endure and feel awe and pity for those who do not." Well, I don't want awe or pity. I endured more battles than any man has a right to in one lifetime. It was a hell of a ride. Huh.
Luke: Hey. Hey, you know, I don't care what they say, money matters. Money's worth the chase. Money is the difference between thumbing a ride and sailing down the highway in a pink Cadillac. It's the difference between showing up in your birthday suit and a silk tuxedo. Money is the difference between drinking rotgut and the best booze in the house. So give a buck its due.
Luke: But you know, even so, money can't bring back a lost love. Money can't mend a broken heart. It can't rewind a wasted life. Money can't explain why you didn't spend more time with your kids. Yeah, I spent my money and everybody else's, too. I was careless with the people who loved me. But the thing was, the amazing thing was they loved me anyway. And I loved them. And that had nothing to do with money. So, in the end, it doesn't matter if you end up with a pocketful of cash. The only thing that matters -- what you can take with you -- is the people, the experiences. Yeah. And that's the big secret. That's the lesson, if there is one, to all of this. So set them up, Joe. Have another round on me. Because I lived my life the way I saw fit, and now that it's done, I have no sadness, no tears, and no regrets.
Carly: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! You guys are shaking them so hard you're going to break what's inside.
Jax: No, no, no, we're being careful. We're not going to break anything.
Carly: Michael, bring me a present over -- I'm going to show you how you do it.
Carly: Yes. Hey.
Carly: Sit down.
Carly: Okay, first of all, sometimes you can see more than you think, so you lightly shake it. Then you kind of shift it around a little bit. Then you think about who gave it to you. Then it's so easy to figure out. You try.
Jax: Oh, look who's here!
Carly: Oh, wow.
Carly: What'd you cut your hair for?
Michael: Merry Christmas.
Jason: Merry Christmas to you, too, guys. I brought you guys your presents.
Michael: All right, thank you. I take it that's his?
Jason: Yeah. What's wrong with you, Carly?
Carly: I'm just not feeling very well.
Michael: So, can we open them now?
Jason: Um --
Carly: I think it would be nice if we gave Uncle Jason his gifts first, don't you?
Michael: All right. Uh -- where is it?
Jax: It's right here.
Michael: All right.
Jax: Here you go.
Michael: Thank you. Merry Christmas.
Jason: Thank you.
Kate: Hi, this is Kate Howard in Room 1089. Are there any messages for me? Well, thanks for checking. Merry Christmas.
Sonny: Uh, Max -- about before, you know -- I got a lot on my mind.
Max: It's okay, Mr. C, I understand.
Sonny: Has anybody called me?
Max: Nothing important.
Sonny: Nothing? Not -- you sure?
Max: Well, yeah, I -- nobody left a message, so --
Sonny: Yeah. Why don't you go ahead and go home, be with your family.
Max: That's okay; I told my family I had to work.
Sonny: Ah, it's Christmas Eve. Just -- I got enough people on staff.
Max: Okay. Thanks, boss.
Max: Oh, and, boss?
Sonny: Yeah? Yeah?
Max: Merry Christmas.
Sonny: Same to you, Max.

Jax: Yeah, this one's good.
