Jamie assures Babe that everything will be ok now that Kelly Buchanan has agreed to let them have baby James. He tells Babe that he can see that Kelly really loves her (Babes) little guy. She tells him: Hes OUR little guy. She still has no clue about what has happened to Bianca and assumes shes happy with Miranda. At that moment, Jamie tells Babe that there is something she needs to know about Bianca.
In Biancas hospital room while shes still unconscious, Erica and Jack are ready to do the DNA test on Bianca and have invited a witness to observe what the nurse is doing to ensure that the results are accurate. Right at that moment, they are startled by JR who walks in and asks if hes come at a bad time. Erica knows she must appear nice to him and assures him hes not interrupting anything. He has a big bouquet of flowers for Bianca and looks like hes come in peace. They introduce him to the woman who will be their witness but dont tell him exactly why shes there. He goes outside the door, realizing they must have private business to attend to. But Erica follows him out the door, urging him to wait, graciously telling him how grateful she is for all hes done for her daughter and apologizing for even remotely considering that hed be responsible for the accident. She hugs him.
Lily is outside by herself, reading a book. The snotty girls still cannot leave her alone. They try to butter her up about her reading skills. Then one of them tells the story of the girl who gets her friends in trouble. She has no clue what they are talking about and believes they are just making conversation with her.
Maggie is with Jonathan. She is stressed while writing a paper for a class, afraid she will not complete it in time. She lets him know that she loves him and is glad hes living with her but does not need another distraction. She is trying to find tapes for the class but is very stressed. Reggie enters and Jonathan lies to him saying Maggie is not there. Reggie finds it odd that Maggie has not returned any phone calls and is never home. He tells Jonathan that he needs to talk to Maggie about Bianca. But Jonathan clearly does not want Reggie to talk to Maggie and pushes him out the door before she has a chance to know that Reggie was there. When she returns she asks who was at the door. He tells her it was just somebody selling subscriptions and whom they do not want to see.
After hearing what happened to Bianca, Babe is worried. Jamie tells her that Bianca still has not regained consciousness. And he tells her he hopes she understands why he did not tell her sooner. She tells him how grateful she is to have him there for her, after all the trouble shes gotten him into. She tells him she wishes Bianca had somebody like him in her life. She puts her arms around him.
After drawing Biancas DNA samples, the woman who will be the witness asks Erica if the baby will be there soon. Erica replies yes, Adam Chandler will bring her.

He seems happy, strangely. But right when hes ready to go out the door, he runs into his son. JR demands to know where his father thinks hes going.
Aidan brings Anita some gourmet coffee and asks her to have lunch with him. She tells him she doesnt want to leave Bianca. He tells her that since they both have beepers, they should be able to get away for just a little while. She agrees to go with him.
Babe tells Jamie that Bianca must be ok and needs somebody to make sure she gets Miranda back. Shes worried about JR and Adam taking advantage of the fact that Bianca is unconscious. He assures her that his dad will make sure that Bianca gets Miranda back and that their primary concern right now, must be James. He reminds her that they must water their Christmas tree, as it is the first Christmas for James. He reminisces that Christmas is his favorite holiday, and not just because of the loot. He remembers when he and JR were best friends and traveled together with their families. He remembers Dixie taking them to visit an old lady with Christmas cider and his dads attempt to make secret Christmas gifts for the kids and cutting his fingers. He tells her that it was a great Christmas because they were all together and they were all happy.
Hearing Adams explanation for why hes taking the baby, JR offers to go with him. Realizing he must not tell his son what he plans to do, Adam admits that he just lied and tells another story about something he needs to do alone. He says he must go and talk privately to Stuart and attempt to resolve his differences with his brother. JR agrees to let his father go off alone with Miranda, obviously having no clue what hes about to do.
Lily tells the girls she wants to read. One of the girls says she wants a new pair of boots but her parents will not let her use their charge cards. They tell her that they tried to be her friend although Danielle and Reggie made trouble for them. Lily tells them they are not her friends and they tried to get her brother in trouble. They tell her they are ready to forgive her because this is Christmas, the time of giving. And they know just how to torture her by taking off their coats and revealing their red clothing. Lily huddles in a corner and covers her ears. They seem to enjoy causing her to suffer.
