Nikki: Merry Christmas, everybody! Oh, it's so good to see you.

Dylan: You, too.

Nikki: Hi, son. Hello. [Gasps] Hello. Gives Mrs. Claus a kiss.


Adam: That's how we do it.

Nikki: And I need a little kiss.

Sharon: Good hugs before their fingers get all sticky.

Nikki: Oh, well, I don't mind. Not too much. [Laughs]

Dylan: Hey.

Victoria: Hi.

Dylan: You look great.

Victoria: Thank you. You look, um, you look a little tired.

Dylan: Hmm.

Victoria: Which means you've been taking most of the feedings, I guess.

Dylan: Well, I'm doing everything I can to make it easy for this one right here.

Sharon: Hmm.

Victoria: Wow. Sounds like he's the perfect man.

Sharon: It's amazing, but true.

Dylan: No.

Victoria: [Laughs]

Mariah: So you're gonna have to get the low-down for me. You got to try all of the sweets and tell me which ones are the best, but you have to try them all 'cause we want to be 100% sure.

Faith: Got it.

Summer: You know they're gonna get hopped up on sugar and lose their mind, right?

Mariah: Yes, but hopped up kids at a Newman party means we probably avoid drama.

Summer: That's very true. Okay, let's go eat all the sweets. All -- all right now. Let's go.

Faith: Okay.

Mariah: I want this one.

Sharon: Where's victor?

Billy: It's Christmas eve, victor. And where the hell are you? You're right here all by yourself with nothing but dollar signs and that ridiculous picture of yourself to keep you company. So face it, victor. You're just as sad and lonely as I am.

Victor: You think you and I are alike?

Billy: Well, look at where we both are on Christmas eve. But you know what the difference is? I want to be with my family. This is what you want. You want to be right here. You know, you say that you value your family, that you love them. But you undermine them at any opportunity, and that is your Christmas gift to your family every year -- a giant helping of hypocrisy.

Victor: You're beginning to piss me off. Not a good idea.

[Present rattling]

Mattie: This one's yours, and that one's mine.

Charlie: They sound the same.

Lily: Uh, excuse me. Who said that you can shake presents? This is not happening.

[Knock on door]

Lily: Put them back, okay?

Cane: Oh, hang on, hang on. That can be Santa. I think it's Santa Claus.

Lily: No, Santa comes down the chimney, not the front door.

Neil: Hey!

Lily: Oh, it's grandpa.

Neil: Merry Christmas. Come here. It's my grandkids. Look at this. The family's all together.

Charlie: Daddy's sleeping over here to wait for Santa.

Neil: Oh, yeah, yeah. Of course. Of course he is.

Cane: Hey, guys, um, I think there might be some presents over here. Why don't you come and help me find them? We don't want to miss anything. Come on. I think they're around here. Come here. [Gasps] Is that a present over there?

Lily: Cane's staying in the guest room.

Neil: Yeah, well, same house. That's good enough, right?

Lily: No, we're just doing this to give the twins one last perfect holiday.

Neil: Perfect? So, when you opened the door and I saw those smiles and laughter, that was you two, right, acting like a team. Is that it?

Lily: Dad, this is it for my marriage. There's no miracle happening here. This is it for cane and me.

Neil: Thanks.

[Door opens]

Devon: Do you know what they call this type of ring?

Hilary: It's an eternity band.

Devon: That's how long I'm gonna love you for, Hilary.

Abby: I know things seem impossible with Hilary right now.

Devon: It's 'cause they are.

Abby: But it's Christmastime. And you have people that love you. Your sister, your father. Hey, you are billionaire uncle Devon.

Devon: Mm-hmm.

Abby: Why don't you just go clean out a toy store for Mattie and Charlie?

Devon: Lily won't let me do that, or else I would have.

Abby: [Chuckles]

Devon: I just need to find something to take my mind off of things. That's all.

Stitch: Hey.

Abby: Hi.

Stitch: Hi.

Abby: Come. Sit.

Stitch: I'm -- I'm - I'm sorry. I'm probably not the best company right now.

Devon: Oh, no, that's fine. That makes two of us, actually. Um, I need to check out something. You guys have a good night, okay?

Abby: Okay. Bye.

Devon: Bye.

Abby: Hi.

Stitch: Hey.

Abby: What's wrong? Is it a patient?

Stitch: No, I, um... I called max to see if he liked his gifts.

Abby: Oh, yeah, that's right. It's already Christmas morning down under.

Stitch: Yeah, Jenna said max wouldn't come to the phone. He didn't -- he didn't want to talk to me. Abby... I'm losing my son.

Phyllis: Come here, my sexy, wonderful lover. You know, I think it's pretty great when you play the heroic big brother and forgive Billy of all his sins.

Jack: I know Billy. I was Billy. I grew out of it. He needs to do exactly that. But thank you for convincing me to cut him a break.

Phyllis: Well, I am a woman of great talents. Maybe I can get you to hire Billy back at jabot.

Jack: Or maybe we could just talk about the holidays, focus on that and not work at all. It's just you and me up here, away from everything and everyone.

Phyllis: Hmm. [Gasps] Do you mean a blanket on the floor in front of the fire? Is that what you're saying?

Jack: Yeah. We could do that. We need to hold on to our own memories. This may be our last holiday here.

Ashley: I'm not kidding. This is good.

Dr. Neville: Mm. Ho, ho.

Ashley: It's good. It kind of just -- it's good.

Dr. Neville: Mm, mm.

Ashley: Wait. Shh. Did you hear something?

Dr. Neville: Yes. Eight tiny reindeer.

Ashley: No, no, no, quiet. I'm serious.

Dr. Neville: Hmm. So am I. What? You think just because you haven't seen something, it's impossible? That's what we're trying to do here, isn't it? Make something no one's ever seen before possible.

Ashley: Do you realize you're now trying to make a rational argument for flying reindeer?

Dr. Neville: Hmm. By all means, do you have an alternate explanation for whatever it is you heard?

Ashley: Yes, I'm thinking it could be an elf.

Dr. Neville: An elf?

Ashley: Or maybe it's Santa.

Dr. Neville: [Chuckles]

Ashley: It could be san--

Traci: Or maybe it's your long lost sister!

Ashley: Aah! Traci!

Traci: Hi.

Ashley: How are you?

Traci: Wow. Am I interrupting science?

Dr. Neville: Ah. Not a bit of it. Talk amongst yourselves. I'm gonna go ingest some more.

Traci: [Chuckles]

Ashley: What are you doing? Why didn't you call me? I would have picked you up at the airport.

Traci: Because I just love a Christmas surprise. And I wanted to see you before the rest of the family.

Ashley: You want to talk to me about Abby's wedding?

Traci: I do. And about jabot. Minus Billy and you. Ashley, you've wanted to be C.E.O. For so long. You just up and quit?

Ashley: I did. I want to do something meaningful, you know? Not fragrances and wrinkle creams.

Traci: With the guy who kidnapped jack's assistant?

Ashley: Shh. He didn't do that. Honestly he didn't. It's not what you think. I can handle him.

Traci: Okay. If you say you can, you can. Now, will you come with me and help me handle the rest of our family?

Ashley: No, actually, I'm gonna stay here. I'm gonna work.

Traci: Ashley, it's Christmas eve.

Ashley: I know, and I will be there tomorrow, and the family will still have lots of problems that I will help you solve. I promise.

Phyllis: No, no, no, no, no. Absolutely not. There is no way that this is our last time at the cabin.

Jack: These are desperate times. We may have to get rid of a lot of assets to keep the business afloat.

Phyllis: Honey, I am not poor. I have my own finances. I will buy the damn cabin myself.

Jack: Why would you do that? This place has not exactly been full of happy memories lately.

Phyllis: You know what? No. There have been some horrible things that have happened here, yes. But there have been some wonderful things that have happened here. This place means something to the Abbotts.

Jack: I know.

Phyllis: It means something to me.

Jack: But jabot, my dad's company, means more to me than any real estate out there. God, laying people off, all these cutbacks at jabot...

Phyllis: Jack, just stop it. We can do this. We play it smart. We get creative. We know how to roll with the bad times, and we especially know how to claw our way back to the good ones.

Jack: You make it sound almost fun.

Phyllis: Well, I put the fun in fun, okay? Stick with me. I mean it. We have proven that we can face anything. And this is part of anything. We will do it.

Billy: I'm starting to piss you off? Well, that's -- that's not old at all, is it? Certainly beats listening to me, though, right? And it beats seeing your kids as actual people, what they need and what they want, which, for some odd reason, is your love and attention.

Victor: Keep on rambling on, Billy boy. You're a lowlife punk. And your father, john Abbott, would turn in his grave.

Billy: You're probably right about that. My father would be furious at me. But at least my kids are never gonna take me to court.

Victor: They'll never have a chance to do that. You won't be around when they're grown up enough to judge you. You'll have drunk yourself into oblivion by that time. What happened two weeks ago when you were driving drunk, under the influence again, hitting a damn signpost? You could have killed a child! Don't you piss me off by giving me a lecture around here! Are you kidding me? You belong in a jail cell! You should rot in a jail cell!

Billy: You know what? Maybe you're on to something, victor. Maybe neither of us deserve to be fathers.

Nikki: Okay, everybody, I have bad news. Nicholas and sage have been snowed in, so they're not gonna be able to get here until they plow the roads.

Faith: Daddy's missing Christmas?

Nikki: Oh, no, honey. He will be back before you wake up. He promises.

Faith: How about grandpa?

Nikki: Have you seen the games? Let me show you these games. And, you know, we have prizes, too. Not just games, but prizes.

Chelsea: Well, that stinks. I mean, victor's not Mr. Ho ho ho, but it's kind of weird to not have him here.

Dylan: I mean, the least he can do is show up for his wife, you know?

Victoria: It's so cute. You're so protective of mom. You know, she's already fed up with dad. This is just the tinsel on the tree.

Dylan: Well, maybe if we, uh, all work together, we can get victor on board and make him give Nikki the gift she really wants.

Hilary: Well, an eternity is worth waiting for.

Devon: What are you doing?

Hilary: I'm giving you back your ring. You should have this, Devon, and your wedding ring, too.

Devon: There's no way I'll ever take those back from you.

Neil: You got a cool Christmas story for the fam?

Cane: Yes, I do. I have a very cool story. Let me think about it. I know. My favorite Christmas story of all time was the one when mommy and I announced to the world that you were gonna be born. That is my favorite story.

Mattie: In Aunt Mackenzie's tummy?

Cane: In Aunt Mackenzie's tummy, yes.

Lily: Yeah. That was pretty amazing.

Cane: Uh, Neil, do you want some apple cider? I've got some apple cider. It's hot. It's good. You want some? Let me get it for you. Excuse me.

Neil: Okay. Thanks.

Lily: Uh, I'm gonna get some firewood.

Neil: Hey. Come here, you little Christmas elves. Now, I see that there's some decorations missing, and I think we need some more, so where is mommy's secret stash? Give it up.

Charlie: It's under her bed in her room.

Neil: It's under her bed in her room. Come on. Give me that. Yes. Let's go get it.

Adam: Hey.

Victor: Whoa. What? You two came back to work, or what?

Victoria: No, we were just thinking, you know, what's missing tonight on Christmas eve? Hmm, let me think. Spreadsheet and profit loss analysis.

Adam: Hmm. Actually, is that what you're working on? That sounds like a lot of fun. Listen, the top of the tower -- you got it done in time for Nikki's party. Why don't you come take some credit, all right? There's a bottle of tequila with your name on it.

Victor: Tomorrow's a holiday. Today is a working day. I'm trying to save my company.

Victoria: Okay. I respect that. But, you know, you do still have a life, and you do still have a family.

Victor: My darling, your waste of a skin ex-husband was here giving me a lecture on family. I don't want to hear it from either one of you, okay?

Victoria: Billy came to see you?

Adam: Or he could have actually been here to see you or he could have just been, you know, wandering around lost in general. These are all viable options. The guy's a wreck.

Victor: My darling, stay away from that idiot, okay? He's no good.

Victoria: Well, clearly being alone and grumpy is the new spirit of the season. So enjoy your papers, dad. Merry Christmas.

Victor: Thank you, my darling. The same to you.

[Door closes]

Adam: I don't think she meant "merry Christmas." You know, you're being stubborn. You realize that, right? And I'm a fan of stubborn. But this is, you know, another level here.

Victor: You know who was stubborn as hell? Your mother, hope.

Adam: Yeah?

Victor: She was no pushover.

Adam: But, you know, she knew the difference between right and wrong. Staying here cooped up while your family's upstairs having a good time -- that's wrong. Join the party.

Victor: You're lecturing me about family. Is that it? Your son with sage -- that was your choice. And now you're afraid and embarrassed to look your wife in the eye.

Adam: Wow.

Sharon: Where's your Santa hat? Did we leave it in the car?

Dylan: Uh, the Santa hat, the elf hat, the reindeer hat, and the panda.

Nikki: Uh, where does the panda come in?

Dylan: What? You've never heard of the famous Christmas panda?

Sharon: Um, Dylan is sleep-deprived, so sometimes he talks a little nonsense. The panda hat is just because sully looks so cute as a panda.

Nikki: Well, I can't argue with that.

Sharon: I'm gonna grab something from the back.

Nikki: I'd ask you if you were happy, but I already know the answer.

Dylan: This is as good as it gets. Until sully spits up.

[Both laugh]

Dylan: And even then, it's still pretty good.

Nikki: Yeah, it is.

Traci: I can't tell you how excited I am for you two. Abby has been texting me photographs and details about the wedding.

Abby: [Laughs] Well, the wedding might not be all smiles and rose petals, though. I mean, don't forget my other family will be there, which reminds me, we have to get to the Newman holiday party.

Traci: Sweetheart, I wonder. What are my chances of keeping you from that party tonight? I really need your help with this side of the family.

Abby: What do you need help with?

Traci: I don't know if you're aware, but your mother is at the lab at jabot as we speak.

Abby: She's working? [Sighs] She's as bad as dad. Um, don't worry. I will take care of it. But I will need your help. You may not have your son this holiday, but now you have my family to deal with.

Stitch: It's not the worst thing in the world.

Traci: [Chuckles] You say that now.


Traci: All right, this is gonna be perfect. You start with your mom. And I have a solo mission that I am going to be handling, and it isn't going to be pretty.

[Cell phone chimes]

Traci: Hey.

Billy: Well, hey. Traci -- like an angel from on high.

Traci: How's that drink? Oh, and don't let me stop you from texting back your bookie.

Billy: I-I wasn't.

Traci: You were.

Billy: You look good, sis. How are you doing?

Traci: Well, I'm good. But I hear you're terrible.

Billy: Oh, that's just gossip. Don't believe a word of it.

Traci: [Sighs] Billy, you have got to stop coming back to this place. The booze and the betting. Your family is worth more. They deserve more, and so do you.

Billy: Yeah, let's talk about what I deserve. Do I -- do I actually deserve to be a father?

Traci: What? Where's that coming from?

Billy: How about we assess the situation, shall we? I'm the guy who left my little girl in a car. I'm the guy who got drunk and lost his license. So, do I really deserve my family?

Traci: Okay. You stop it. I will not let you wallow. I will not let you drown in your misery. Billy, there is so much love in you. I know. Sometimes it makes your heart hurt. But you're one of the lucky ones. It's -- it's the ones who can't feel. They're the ones that are missing out. So don't you miss out not one more second. Please. Now, I was gonna have you come with me and do a little Abbott mission tonight, but... I think there's somewhere that you are needed more.

Billy: I don't think that's a good idea.

Traci: Yes, you do.

[Cell phone rings]

Traci: [Sighs] Don't argue with your sister. This is Kyle, and I have to take it.

Billy: [Sighs]

Dr. Neville: Neuroscience, when properly broken down, is relatively simple.

Ashley: Actually, anything, when broken down, is simple, right? I mean, it's the breaking down that's the hard part.

Dr. Neville: I guess you're right.

Ashley: Right.

Abby: Ho, ho, ho! And away we go!

Stitch: Yes! Take a sleigh ride to the north pole!

Abby: Or to the north of town. The Abbott cabin, whatever's closest. Come on! Let's go!

Ashley: I can't go. We're working.

Stitch: Traci said so, and I get the impression people don't argue with Traci.

Ashley: I've been arguing with Traci my whole life, and I can again, so...

Abby: Okay, let me just point something out to you. Besides you and your lab partner here, the only other person missing holiday celebrations to work is victor Newman. Now, do you really want to be like dad?

Stitch: Mm-hmm.

Ashley: I'll get my things.

Stitch: Yeah. Good job.

Ashley: You gonna be okay?

Dr. Neville: Oh, I'll be better than that. I'm in my element. Merry Christmas, miss Abbott.

Ashley: Merry Christmas. I'll talk to you soon.

Dr. Neville: Hmm.

Abby: What's the green stuff?

[Door opens]

Victor: No more interruptions, please.

Faith: But today is special, grandpa.

Victor: My sweetheart! What are you doing here?

Adam: Anybody ever notice how difficult it is to get victor to do anything?

Nikki: Ha.

Dylan: What happened to Victoria?

Adam: She took off. He wasn't exactly warm and welcoming.

Nikki: Well, bah humbug to him. We can have a lovely time without scrooge.

Dylan: Hey, big buddy, you want to try this reindeer game over here? You want to come?

Sharon: [Chuckles] I don't think he has the eye-hand coordination for that yet, but I like your optimism.

Summer: Hi.

Kyle: Hey.

Summer: Um, yeah, come here. [Sighs] Gosh, I'm so happy you're here. This has been the most depressing Christmas party ever. Everyone's trying to lure grandpa out of his lair. My dad and sage are snowed in, so they can't come save the day. It's really bad.

Kyle: Perfect.

Summer: Kyle, did you not just hear a word that I said?

Kyle: Yeah, you just said the party is basically over.

Summer: Yeah, it never even started, really.

Kyle: Well, that's good, because we have somewhere else we need to be. Come on.

Summer: Okay.

Sharon: That was, uh, brave what you tried with victor, but bizarre.

Adam: Yeah, brave and bizarre sort of sums up my relationship with victor, doesn't it?

Sharon: He's a scrooge.

Adam: Hmm.

Sharon: He should have been here anyway. It would have been nice.

Adam: I guess so.

Sharon: [Sighs]

Adam: You all right?

Sharon: Just tiny babies can get heavy. Where's Mariah? She should be on baby duty.

Adam: Hey, no, I can, uh, you know.

Sharon: Oh, yeah?

Adam: Yeah, let's see.

Sharon: Okay. Here you go. [Chuckles]

Adam: Yeah. He's perfect, huh? Wow.

Victoria: Johnny, Santa didn't come yet. I promise. Where did these presents come from? Huh. [Sighs]

Victor: Sweetheart, does your mommy know you're here?

Faith: Why are you so grumpy? It's Christmas eve.

Victor: Oh, am I grumpy? I didn't know I was grumpy. I was just working. I didn't mean to snap at you.

Faith: It's time to come to the party. Everybody misses you.

Victor: Well, you know, some people have time to party and some people work. You know what I do?

Faith: Make money?

Victor: [Laughs] Yes, I do. This company that I built makes money for all of us. And one day, you and your brothers and your cousins will inherit all of this. How's that? This office may be yours.

Faith: The chair, too?

Victor: The chair? Well, of course. Would you like to sit in it? Come here.

Faith: Sure. [Chuckles] [Giggles]

Victor: Oh, boy. One more time.

Faith: [Giggles]

Victor: You like that?

Faith: Yeah.

Victor: Yeah?

Faith: But...

Victor: But what?

Faith: If I can't go to parties and see my family, maybe I don't want the chair.

Victor: Hmm.

Sharon: Aww, he likes you.

Adam: Yeah?

Sharon: [Chuckles]

Adam: I think so.

Sharon: That look on your face, is that because of the time you missed with your son?

Adam: What?

Sharon: When Connor was a baby, the time you missed with him.

Adam: Oh, yeah. Yeah. Exactly. It's...

Dylan: Here. I'll take him.

Adam: All right, yeah, here we go.

Dylan: Thank you.

Adam: Tell you what. He's a good sleeper, that's for sure.

Dylan: Oh, he is.

Adam: Yeah.

Sharon: You should see him at 1:00 A.M.

Dylan: Yeah. And 3:00 A.M.

Adam: [Chuckles]

Dylan: And 5:00 A.M.

[Both laugh]

Mariah: Has anybody seen faith?

Victor: Well, she's right here.

[Knock on door]

Phyllis: Who's that?

Jack: I don't know. Somebody got lost or...

Traci: Merry Christmas!

Stitch: Merry Christmas!

Abby: Merry Christmas!

Stitch: Yo, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum! I think that's how it goes. Is that right?

Phyllis: This is nuts! This is great, but this is nuts!

Abby: Hey, that's the Abbotts in a nutshell.

Jack: W-where's Ashley?

Traci: Oh, she's right behind us. She'll be here in a second. She drives so slow. We couldn't wait anymore.

Jack: How did this happen?

Kyle: Well, aunt Traci, of course.

Summer: Yes, her holiday cheer is quite contagious.

Abby: Yeah, she knew we needed some holiday cheer right this very minute.

Traci: You listen to me, Jack Abbott, and you listen good. Half a billion dollars -- eh, it comes, it goes. But family, your family, we're forever. [Chuckles] Merry Christmas.

Jack: Merry Christmas.

Traci: [Sniffles]

Hilary: I can't keep these, Devon.

Devon: Well, I can't take them back. Do you remember when I gave you that eternity ring?

Hilary: I have my memories back. You know that.

Devon: Nothing has changed for me since that night, okay? I'm never gonna stop loving you, so either you, um, you hide them somewhere and forget that you have them or you can give them away to charity, but I'm not gonna take them back.

Hilary: Well, why are you here alone? You should be at lily's. Neil said she needed her family's support tonight.

Devon: Well, cane's staying over 'cause they're trying to give the twins the perfect Christmas, and she asked me to come over tomorrow. Maybe Neil didn't know that.

Hilary: No, he did. He was just using that as an excuse to push me away because he loves you.

Devon: And because you don't.

Cane: Hot fresh cider for grandpa.

Lily: And this should be enough wood.

Mattie: Mommy, can you help me with my hair?

Lily: Yeah, sure.

Charlie: Daddy, I have a bump on my head.

Cane: Where? Show me. How'd you -- did you bump your head?

Both: Mistletoe!

Lily: How did that get there, hmm?

Neil: Magic.

Cane: Um, guys, let's, uh, do a daddy story before bedtime.

Both: No!

Neil: Hey, wait a minute. Someone mentioned the perfect Christmas. Look at those faces. You don't want to disappoint them. And I think kissing under the mistletoe is a law. You don't want to break the law on Christmas, do you?

Cane: Okay, all right, now you're pushing it, grandpa. You're pushing it.

Neil: Yeah, I'm okay with that.

Charlie: The law on Christmas.

Cane: Yeah?

Lily: Okay, listen, one quick kiss and then time for books, okay?

Cane: [Clears throat]

Neil: [Chuckles]

Victoria: [Sighs] Okay, look, you don't live here. You can't just use your key whenever you feel like it.

Billy: I know. I thought you were still at the Newman party. I was gonna drop off the gifts and I was gonna haul out of here.

Victoria: Don't do it again. Please. It makes me uncomfortable.

Billy: I've been doing a lot of that lately, haven't I? Making you uncomfortable, like the other night.

Victoria: Yeah, that was horrible. You were belligerent, and you were drunk. Look, how did you even get here? Did you drive after your drink at the club? Is that what you did?

Billy: No, I took a cab because they took my license. And I wasn't drinking.

Victoria: I saw you. I saw you at the club.

Billy: I ordered it, but I didn't drink it, okay? You want to give me a breathalyzer?

Victoria: I'm not the cops, Billy.

Billy: I ordered it, and I wanted it, but I pushed it away, okay? 'Cause I am not ready to give up on us, on me. Vicki, I'm going to fight. And I'm gonna do whatever it takes to win you back. I'm gonna be better. I'm gonna do better.

Nikki: Did you do this? Did you convince your grandpa to come to his own party?

Faith: [Chuckles]

Victor: Sweet girl is so persuasive that she will, from now on, conduct all of Newman's negotiations.

Nikki: I'll bet you will.

Noah: Hey, grandpa. You made it.

Victor: Noah. Excuse me.

Noah: Faith bribed you.

Victor: Excuse me. Yeah.

Nikki: Pretty good work.

Chelsea: Saw that look on your face earlier, by the way.

Adam: Oh, you mean the, uh, the look I gave my father when he walked in? You know, I'm not surprised by a lot of things, but him showing up here, that's surprising.

Chelsea: Uh, no, I'm talking about when you were holding the baby earlier. Your thoughts were all over your face.

Adam: Really? Like, what do you mean?

Chelsea: You're ready, aren't you? I think I am, too. I think it's time we had another baby.

Billy: Look, words are pointless. I know that. There have been too many promises, too many screw-ups. So no more speeches from me. I... it's gonna take time. A lot of it. And I'm going to prove to you that we can do this. I mean, hell, I've got nothing but time.

Victoria: Billy.

Billy: Look, listen, four years ago today, I said to you, "you and me, we are forever and ever. Amen." Because we are meant to be. I'm gonna make like Santa and fly out of here now, so...

Victoria: Wait. I think I hear Johnny still awake upstairs. Why don't you just stick around and you can [Chuckles] Watch him open a present? And you can help Katherine.

Billy: Hell yes. I-I mean, um, God bless us, everyone.

Devon: I shouldn't have said that. The truth is, we don't know what Neil knew or didn't know about tonight. Maybe Lily needed some extra help with cane at the last minute to make things, you know, less awkward, have an extra body around. I'm sure faking Christmas for the kids --

Hilary: Do you even hear yourself? Okay, you're trying to -- you're trying to make excuses for Neil just to make me feel better.

Devon: Well, I mean, Neil cares about you. Maybe it's not the way you want him to, but I know he does.

Hilary: Okay, just stop, stop. Stop trying to make me feel better, okay? It's way too weird.

Devon: Yeah, it is a little bit, huh? I never thought that things could get more complicated between the three of us, but I was very wrong.

Hilary: Boy, were you ever.

Devon: [Chuckles]

Hilary: Would it be weird if we tried to be friends?

Neil: I would like to propose a toast to Christmas itself. A baby brought into this world to remind us of our own humanity, our own frailty, and to show us all that we deserve love and care and a place at the inn. To love each other, to forgive each other, and -- and ourselves.

Victor: Now, look at this room, will you? Rebuilt in no time at all. That's how quickly we will rebuild Newman enterprises. From the ashes. Literally from the ashes.

Jack: I look around at all these beautiful Abbott faces, some by blood, some by marriage. All of us by love. And I think we're not gonna be down for long. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger.

Victor: This is not just a company. It has a heart. It has a soul. And whoever of the Newman family will step foot in this company will have a role in it. I'd like to welcome someone back, who I'm very proud of. You, Noah Newman, are now part of this company again. And you are where you belong.

Jack: Dad built jabot as a source of pride for all of us, a foundation, a port in the storm. Abbotts will come and go from jabot, but jabot will always be there. Always. And the Abbotts will stay strong and united.

Neil: Family is never easy. If it were, we wouldn't cherish it or give it the attention and respect it deserves. But, you know, sometimes we forget, and that is why, especially now, we need... to remember.

Victor: An absolutely adorable little wise girl made me aware of what is most important. So, here's to family.

Jack: To family.

Neil: To family.

Lily: To family.

All: To family!

Abby: Cheers.

Dylan: Hear, hear.

Adam: Family.

Chelsea: To family.

Cane: To family.

Kyle: It's good.

Next on "the young and the restless"...

Stitch: Okay, walk away, Billy, because I have no problem helping you out of here with or without your cooperation.

Luca: We're your partners. You seem to forget who you're talking to.
