THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
but you can do the job when you’re in town
later on, we’ll conspire as we dream by the fire
to face unafraid the plans that we’ve made
walking in a winter wonderland
walking in a winter wonderland tphoelt walking in a wonderland walking in a wonderland then you go — look at you! You’re getting the hang of it. That’s perfect.
[ Gasps ] Busted! What? You did! You’re taking another bite of the potatoes. I like to think of it as quality control. I-I told you to stay out of the kitchen today, okay? A-and besides, it’s almost time to eat. Well, thank god. Should I rally the troops? I said “almost.” And anyway, we are still waiting on the man of the hour. Dante: Thanks for doing this. Of course. Well, no, I know you want to be with the kids. And we will be as soon as we get to the quartermaines’. Okay, well, we’ll just, you know, a drink, maybe two, appetizers, you know? Hey, hey, hey. Sonny is your family, which means he’s my family, too. Package deal, remember? I don’t forget anything when it comes to you. Ooh. Mmm, that tahini sauce smells like heaven. Not like thanksgiving? Well, thanksgiving is what we make it. Yeah? Yeah. Well, I’m gonna — I’m switching gears this year. So can you do me a favor? Hmm? Can you grab the watch out of my pocket? When did it happen? When did you lose the feeling in your hands? Grab the w– okay, I will grab the — not that one. It’s not — oh, darn it. Yeah, not that — there. Okay, I’ll try the other one.
[ Gasps ] Ooh. Yeah, there you are. What is… you got it. Here. Open it. It’s for me? No, it’s — it’s for me ’cause I’m trying out a new look. Yeah, it’s for you. It’s, uh… I just… I just want to thank you for being here and for changing my life. Well, you could have just said that. I just wanted to show you. They’re beautiful. Sonny, thank you. I love them. And I love you. Hey. Hey. You look so beautiful. You look pretty good yourself. Yeah? Mm-hmm. You smell amazing, too. Do you have any idea how badly I want to drag you out of here and kiss you till you can’t breathe? Ohh. I’m game if you are. Michael: Happy thanksgiving. Hey. Hey. Hi! No piecaken? They were sold out. Bummer. Well, thanks for the wine. Now it’s your turn. Do you have anything for me? Any updates? You should be resting after the night you had. Oh, I’m fine. Holly did not hurt me. She even called kevin to make sure that I’d be found quickly. Ashby: How considerate. But she does earn demerits for holding you at gunpoint. Deputy mayor ashby. You did not have to give up your holiday to be here. Oh! Well, I like to be kept in the loop. What an understatement. Excuse me. Mm-hmm. You summoned me. What could you possibly need, since it’s thanksgiving? A reason not to arrest you. Reporter:
Pcpd officers are actively
searching for a suspect
who abducted mayor collins
She is in possession
of valuable jewels
and is considered armed
and extremely dangerous.
[ Click ] Well, it looks like we have something in common. We’re both damn near indestructible.
Arrest me for what? Obstruction. Materially compromising this investigation by printing sensitive information in today’s invader. Jordan, I gave you a chance to comment before publication. You had no business naming esme prince as an official suspect in the hook slayings. You promised me an exclusive, and you didn’t deliver. We’re tracking the gps in the mayor’s car. And? Do you know where ms. Sutton’s headed? Eileen, um, I got a call today from the county administrator. They wanted a status report. I haven’t been able to call him back. Could you handle that for me? Certainly. Great. Thanks. How much longer do we tolerate that traitorous individual in our midst? Long enough for her to be useful to us, or maybe to help us to incriminate victor. Anyway, she’s gone. Tell me where you think holly is. Well… is it someone we know? Or a stranger? Or someone we know of. A celebrity.
[ Laughing ] You guys are so off base. Well, then just tell us who this mystery guest is — aside from him being a he. So you mean essentially completely ruin the surprise? Yes! Yes! Where is the excitement in that?! Oh, don’t worry. This holiday is never short on excitement. Something always happens on thanksgiving. Hmm, hmm, not this time. No sirree. I have taken every precaution. You say that every year.
[ Chuckles ] Mark my words, boys. This thanksgiving is going off exactly according to plan.
[ Laughs ] Uh, thanks for doing this. I know the last place you want to be is anywhere near ned right now. Wiley wants me here, so I’m here. You are such a wonderful grandma. Not that you even look like a grandma at all.
[ Laughs ] I love the flattery.
[ Laughs ] Well, I only speak the truth. So, is, uh, josslyn coming? She and trina are volunteering at a soup kitchen, so she’ll have to pass on pizza this year for thanksgiving. Oh, don’t let olivia hear you say that. She is determined to serve a turkey this year. Oh.
[ Laughs ] Well, you know, she should know by now that is absolutely impossible, so… I admire her optimism, although I think the kids would prefer pizza. Yeah. Where are they, by the way? Upstairs in the family room. There’s a major arts-and-crafts thing going on. I am gonna have to chisel the clay off of scout.
[ Laughter ] You know, drew, I’m just — I’m glad that this — this thanksgiving is gonna hold better memories for you. Yeah, me too. Has it really been a year? Since I came back, yeah. Broke the news about jason. Well, this day is supposed to be about giving, not receiving, but, sure, I got a little something for you. I mentioned to brook lynn that the civilian complaint review board might be open to reinstating you if she wrote a letter kind of explaining what happened with the incidents. Punching valentin and linc. Right. Like if she told them that you were defending her. If she kind of put some context around what happened, they would be open to reinstating you, perhaps. When did you suggest this to her? Oh, a few weeks ago. But — but she’s busy. That’s it? Mind out of the gutter, mister. This is a family event. We’ll get to the rest later.
[ Exhales sharply ] Sonny, I love them.
[ Laughs ] They — no, they — they look beautiful. Thank you. How are you? Fine. How are you? No, how are you really?
[ Laughs ] Listen… I’m good. It must be hard to be away from your girls. I got — no, I got to spend time with them last night. Came in, their — their — their big faces just lighting up when they saw the, you know… yeah. …Parade balloons, and their eyes got all big. Yeah, but what about, you know, your old house and your old traditions you used to do? Nina, nina. Don’t you miss them? T-this is my house. I know, but — no. No buts. This is my house, and with you in it makes it my home. So, what do you say? You want to…make some new traditions with me?
[ Laughs ] I would love nothing more.
Alexis, I had every intention of holding up my end of the agreement, but not at the expense of a sensitive investigation, and it doesn’t get more sensitive than this. Lives are at stake. Which is why I brought the letter to your attention in the first place. We both have a duty to this city, and I’m not going to apologize for fulfilling mine. Now, I’m sorry you have to work tonight. But I have a thanksgiving dinner I have to go to. So, my car is somewhere in this vicinity? I mean, there’s nothing much out there. Well, the theory is that she abandoned the car outside the woods and then continued on foot. Oh, well, then she could be anywhere. I have officers on the scene in baylor woods. One of them found a well with drinking water. Then there must be a house or a building of some sort nearby. That’s the assumption. Laura: Eileen? Did you manage to get in touch with the county administrator? I’ve relayed the relevant information. Thanks for stopping by. I know you had plans. Yeah. Of course. We — we wanted to see you. Yeah, but, you know, that — that walk down the hall was pretty grueling. Oh, it’s brutal. Yeah, maybe you got to move a little closer to us, even. Yeah? Hey, everybody. Hey, there they are! Go ahead. Eat whatever you want. We shall. Be merry, the whole thing. Thank you. Yeah. Hey. Hi. I’m glad you came by. Oh, as if I’d miss a traditional thanksgiving. [ Laughs ] Well, you know what? I’m doing things different this year. I can tell. I’m sure it’ll be delicious. Hey. Oh, hey. I’m glad you both could make it. We’ll take you as long as we can get you. Okay. Thanks for having us. Is your friend cody coming? No. No, I — I didn’t — no, I didn’t invite him. But he’s not really into these kinds of social gatherings, you know? Oh, yeah. Well, he’s not alone in that. Hmm. Ah, excuse me one second. Yeah. Okay, out with it. Out with what? With whatever’s going on in that beautiful head of yours. I’m just wondering if it’S… social gatherings that cody doesn’t like, or questions. What? What — what — where did this come from? You know what? Actually, forget I said anything. No, I can’t now. No, please. No, what happened? This isn’t the first time you’ve thrown shade cody’s way. I-I thought you thought he was a good guy. What — what changed? You okay? Uh, yeah. Yeah, I-I was just, um… thinking about jason and everything that’s happened since. Yeah. It’s been quite a year. That’s an understatement. But you made it. You know, if someone would have told me that I would have to go through what I went through, and I’d have to do it without jason… I would have said it was impossible. But look at you now. You’re not only still standing, you’re thriving, arguably stronger than ever. No small part thanks to you. What’s with the mood in here? There’s no mood. Sensing a mood. We were just talking about the anniversary of drew’s homecoming. A blessing for the whole family. It was a moment to remember, that’s for sure. Yeah, especially you at the door holding pizzas, no less.
[ Carly laughs ] It was quite an eventful thanksgiving. Remember? Chase clocked valentin. Yeah, that was the first time I lost my badge. We won’t stop asking. Or guessing. Okay, okay, okay! Fine. I ordered a turkey from dinde vivante. Mm… it’s a french company with a local farm. In port charles? Yes! Yes, and they have only the finest, the most organic turkeys, fresh as they come. And —
and get this — it comes completely roasted, fully ready to eat. What could be better than that? I don’t know. Almost sounds too good to be true. Yes. But that’s the point. It’s not too good to be true. It is true. I’m not taking any chances this year. So a turkey is the man of the hour? Yeah. That’s right. How do you know it’s even a male bird? Male turkeys are bald. Yes. Male turkeys are also bigger than female turkeys, which makes it exactly perfect to feed this whole big, crazy family of ours. Hmm. Drew and michael can eat the giblets. No, no, no. No. We’re not doing any of that. We’re not doing any of that this year. Everyone’s gonna get along. Everyone’s gonna sing “kumbaya” because I want this to — no, i need this thanksgiving to be perfect. Then perfect it is. Thank you.
[ Turkey gobbling loudly ] Well, where do you want it? What is that smell? What’s that sound? Well, leo… that is our dinner.
[ Gobbling continues ]
Olivia: Okay. Okay. Sir, my friend, I-I most definitely did not order a-a live turkey from dinde vivante. Well, the company name literally means “turkey alive.” What is this? What is this? It’s all in french. I need a translator to — to read this stupid thing. Too bad valentin’s not here, huh? Okay. Okay, okay. Sir, friend, my good man, you need to march this turkey right back to the farm. You got it? I just deliver, lady. No backsies, you know what I mean? Alright, I’ll, uh — I’ll show you out. Okay. Should I fire up the grill? Are you seriously making jokes right now? Sorry for bringing up valentin before. I wasn’t thinking. I know that you’re very sensitive about losing your badge. Yeah, I miss being a cop every day. I know you do. But that doesn’t mean I’m not grateful for everything you’ve done for me. Because I am. I’m just really praying the department gives me a second chance. Well, I want what you want. But do you, really? So, what happened yesterday? Did you end up confronting nina? W-what’s this? Well, now that nina has run out of homes to wreck, she’s taken up idle gossip. And I sure as hell did. The casino buffet? As in a buffet at an actual casino? I know, I know. It sounds cheesy. But mike and I loved it. We would get brando all dressed up and tell him he could eat as much as he wanted. And one year I hit it big, and we upgraded to the surf and turf. Sounds like you had a great time. We did. Eh! Maybe that’s just the way I remember it. [ Chuckles ]
[ Sighs ] Maybe brando hated being there. All the sounds and the lights and the smoke. Probably wanted to be in a real restaurant. You did the best you could, gladys.
[ Knock on door ] Um, I’ll get it. Okay. That’s all any of us can do, you know? Nina: Hi. Hi. Sorry I’m late. I was defending the first amendment. As one does on thanksgiving. Come in.
[ Exhales slowly ] Are you, um… what? Are you trying to distract me? Is it working? Mm. Maybe. Maybe? Oh. Okay. Clearly I’ve lost my touch. What is your, uh, problem with cody? Uh, I don’t know. I mean, I-I guess… I guess I didn’t like his reaction to me investigating britt’s necklace. The necklace? Mm-hmm. Come on, that — that necklace might be his inheritance. That kid grew up with nothing. He was, like, on that estate, looking out at everything he couldn’t have. Okay.
[ Clears throat ] You’re defending your friend, and I — and I love you for that. But…what if he doesn’t deserve it? I’m gonna call the new chef at the metro court. Maybe he can help us out.
[ Turkey gobbling ] Leo, do not touch that thing! It could be diseased! Only mammals get rabies. Well, it could have bird flu or something. Who knows? And you wanted to serve it to us for dinner? Sorry. Not helping. One more remark out of you, I will stuff you in the crate with that turkey. Yes! Yes. Hello. It’s olivia. We have a little bit of a, uh…situation here, and I’m really hoping that you can help us out. I know they want to cook you. But don’t worry, mr. Wattle. I won’t let that happen.
[ Gobbling ] Where’s laura? Getting the deputy mayor out of her hair. I know you all can’t make it to your thanksgiving dinner, so I brought thanksgiving dinner for you. Are you the best or what? Aww. Aww. I can’t have my guy and his colleagues starving on turkey day.
[ Cellphone ringing ] And here I thought you couldn’t get more popular in this place. Thanks, felicia. You’re very welcome. Wow. What’s all this? Oh, are you the thanksgiving fairy? That seems like a decent title. I’ll take it. Very sweet of you.
[ Laughs ] My officers located a trapper’s cabin on the northwest corner of baylor woods, not far from the canadian border. Footprints? Fresh, but no vehicle. It’s her. I’ll call for backup along the way. Considering holly’s still armed… I’ll wait with felicia for the news. And make sure this ends peacefully. Well, that’s the goal. Let’s go. Here we go. Yep. Pcpd. State your business. Just walking off the meal. Is there…an issue? Area’s off-limits. I heard there’s a manhunt for a jewel thief. Never mind. I’ll head back. Stay safe.
[ Police radio chatter ]
I may or may not have done some digging. Oh. Mm-hmm. Ohh. Ah, okay. And? And cody has a juvenile arrest record. And do you know what for? The files are sealed. Well, you know, he got into trouble as a kid. So did I. So what? Yeah. Did you get into trouble together? Well, I don’t know. We were wild kids. That’s why we ended up at camp. I think both of us needed structure. Yeah, look, I am not here to judge anyone, ’cause god knows I have done my fair share of shady things. And your past definitely should not define you… this is like the biggest “but” I’ve ever heard — no, it’s a “however.” Well, that’s the same thing. Okay… is it possible that cody’s issues aren’t as in the past as you thought? Gladys: How could you?! Uh-oh. Printing information about brando’s killer before his family even knew? Who does that?! Nina: Hold on. You weren’t informed that the pcpd considered esme prince their prime suspect? No, I sure as hell wasn’T. Well, that’s ’cause we don’t have a prime suspect, and that’s why we don’t want the press releasing information prematurely, ’cause it’s never a good idea. Confirmed — one suspect inside. I have officers at each exit. Remember, the suspect is armed. Keep our people away from any windows. Robert. I don’t need that. Put it on! She wouldn’t hurt me. Hasn’t she hurt you already? Okay, perfect. Thank you. You know holly best. Is she willing to die for a diamond necklace? No. But she’d risk everything for freedom.
[ Police radio chatter ] Um… it should be me. Something’s bothering you. Yeah, I like to think we’re honest with each other. Aren’t we? You tell me. Is there anything that’s happened recently that you haven’t filled me in on? Okay, if this is about linc — it’s about us. Look, I want to be in a relationship where we have each other’s backs, where we support each other, even when it’s hard. Chase — otherwise, what is the point? No, no, no. It’s okay. I understand. I understand. Thank you very much. Well? Well, I offered the new chef triple his normal pay to wring that turkey’s — to — to ready that beautiful bird. No dice.
[ Turkey gobbling ] Okay. Well, how hard could it be to…ready a bird? People have done it since the dawn of time. I’m willing to try if you are. Okay. Okay. Now, that’s what I’m talking about. That’s the spirit. Now it starts to feel like thanksgiving. Okay. I’m gonna go grab drew and, uh, chase. I’ll be right back. There will be no turkey today. Oh, honey, honey, no. Don’t — don’t — don’t say that. We will have a turkey. Don’t worry. Oh, I’m not worried. Now neither is mr. Wattle.
[ Gobbling continues ]
So, how are you feeling? What do you mean? With your pregnancy. Oh! Did you just forget you were pregnant? ‘Cause I-I didn’t know that was a thing. You know what? Sometimes I could with how amazing this little one is. It’s been a dream so far. Oh, that makes me so happy to hear. Yeah. I bet you’ll be so relieved to find your birth parents. I mean, getting as much medical history as possible is just — just great for the baby’s sake. That’s exactly why I’m looking for them. Yeah. On that note, a reporter that I know tracked down some members of the commune as far as the mojave desert. I told you it would be a struggle. Well, good news is, um, somebody offered to help. Who? Me. We do support each other. At least I thought we did. You support the life that you want for me, not the life that I actually want. What? Run! There’s a wild turkey on the loose! You know, that was really thoughtful of you to bring food for everyone. I’m happy to do it.
[ Chuckles ] Now, spill. You’ve had a hell of a 24 hours. How are you? I’m fine. Really? Yeah, I — really, I am. I am fine. [ Sighs ] I’m far more worried about robert right now, you know? This was just the last thing he needed. He was already worried sick about anna. Yeah, I know. I just can’t believe that holly would go this far. All for a necklace. I think it might be a little more complicated than that. Yeah, I’m sure it’s more complicated than that. I just can’t stand it. Robert: Holly, it’s robert.
Now, the place is surrounded.
There is no escape this time. Robert, we got to go. No. No. Not yet. Is laura alright?!
She’s fine. Apologize to her. I never wanted anyone to get hurt, robert, especially you.
I don’t want you
I want you to come
out of there unscathed.
And you know what you got
to do to make that happen. Can we all just take a breath? ‘Cause today is supposed to be about family and food and — okay, w-w-well, brando was my family. I-I understand. My only child. He was murdered. And now she’s helping his killer get away with it! Actually, I intended for the opposite to be true, and I’m truly sorry that you were caught off guard. I thought that you would be aware of esme. Oh, I was not. Well, at least the police have a credible lead. That’s good news, isn’t it? We will get justice for brando. Whatever it takes, gladys. You have my word. Behold the pice de résistance. I cannot believe this is happening. What is happening? Well, olivia ordered a turkey, and it arrived, well, alive and well. And strong.
[ Groans ]
[ Gobbling ] This dinner is for the birds.
[ Laughter ] Okay, you know what? I’m glad that everyone else finds this so amusing. I am not laughing. Yet another thanksgiving totally ruined. Look, I give you a lot of credit. Many have tried in the past — not the least, great-grandmother lila — but at some point you just gotta accept it’s tradition. Monica’s gonna love this story. At least there’s still pie. And stuffing. And cranberry sauce. Oh. I think. But we need a meal. We need a main course. Well, there is an easy fix. Together: Luigi’S.
[ Laughs ]
Why can’t the quartermaines have a normal thanksgiving for once? Brook lynn, I need to ask you something. And I need an honest answer. Pizza’s here! Oh, finally. I am starving. You know what? Olivia will kill us if — look, I don’t care. Would you look at me? Were you ever going to tell me about the ccrb letter that you never wrote? Hey, where’s, uh, brook lynn and chase? The pizza’s gonna get cold. I told them, but they were talking close. Oh! Ah. To be young and in love. Hey, watch it. We are still both of those things. Now and forever. Alright. Let’s — whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. You know the rules. Together: First we sing, then we eat. We are gonna get one thing right this thanksgiving, so help me.
[ Chuckles ] There you go. My mom couldn’t get out of there fast enough, huh? Well, can you blame her? Not the most festive thanksgiving. It was my favorite one yet. It was? Yeah. Why? ‘Cause I get to spend it with the person I love, who I share my home and my life with. And your toiletries with. What?
[ Laughs ] The new hand lotion. What are you — I can’t deal… are you serious? …With how good it smells. Oh, you got to keep your hands off my stuff. Really? Mm-hmm. All of your stuff? Well, no, actually, you have full access to my stuff. Yeah, that’s what I thought. Yeah. Mm. You ready for some pizza? I wouldn’t put it past my mother to actually make a turkey. I want some pepperoni. Hmm. With this ring, I thee wed.
[ Exhales sharply ] You deserve the world. And I know that this wasn’t your fantasy elopement. This is my fantasy elopement. Because at the end of the day, you are my husband. And you’re my wife. Hey, sasha. How you holding up? I’M…okay. Another first in the books. I got through a whole year of them after liam. And now I get to do it all over again with brando. You don’t have to do it alone. I know. And I’m so grateful, sonny. Oh. Oh. I’ve got to make a phone call. Be right back. I know that brando would want me to embrace life, even when it hurts. Maybe especially then. He would want me to be with family. Well, you know you are welcome here. Thank you, sonny. So, uh, as far as gladys, is she still hands on, or what’s going on? But always for my benefit. I feel like gladys and i finally understand each other. Yeah, hello. Um, I’m having a rough day and could use a little fun. When’s the next game? Great. Count me in for a seat at the table.
We gather together
to ask the lord’s blessing
he chastens and hastens
his will to make known
the wicked oppressing
now cease from distressing
sing praises to his name
he forgets not his own jordan: Holly sutton,
this is your last chance.
Exit the premises
with your hands visible. I don’t like this. Mac, give the order to move in. Let me — hold on a second. Let’s give her a chance to do the right thing. She’s had a chance. Multiple ones, in fact. Time’s up.
[ Explosion ] I got to get in there. This is commissioner ashford. She could be hurt! Robert! Robert! No! I need bomb squad and fire department asap! It’s not safe! Robert! Stay here! N– holly! No!
[ Sobbing ] No, god, please!
On the next “General Hospital” —
