Finn: Something wrong?
Steffy: I’m just, uh, looking for the mistletoe.
Finn: Hmm. Well, I don’t need mistletoe to kiss my super hot wife. Ah, you did an amazing job with the decorations.
Steffy: Thanks. You don’t think it’s a tiny bit too much?
Finn: Well, the kids like it, right?
Steffy: Oh, absolutely.
Finn: Well, then that’s all that matters.
Steffy: It was so cute watching kelly help her little brother put the ornaments on the tree. I mean, it was adorable.
Finn: Yeah, it’s, um, hard not to get caught up in the holiday spirit with the kids around.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, that would be even truer if the fear of sheila wasn’t hanging over us.
Eric: Yes… well…
Ridge: Dad? Hey! You wanted to see me?
Eric: Yes. It’s important, sit down.
Ridge: No, no. I remember making this for you and mom. It must have been, what, third grade, maybe.
Eric: I’m sure. Yeah. And it’s, uh, it’s hung on the christmas tree every year ever since. Along with all these other ones from your– your brother and your sisters and… the grandkids, the great grandkids. Jeez, look at these.
Ridge: Well, tradition is important, right? Especially this time of year.
Eric: Yes, it is. Look, ridge, um… I’m worried about you.
Ridge: Worried about me? Why?
Eric: I don’t want you to feel alone or untethered this holiday season.
Katie: I–I know I shouldn’t have put off my appointment. I– I should have come in months ago. And that’s not good. And… you haven’t said anything, which also can’t be good.
Carter: Maybe that’s because you haven’t let the doctor get a word in. That–that’s why, right.
Katie: Oh, yeah. I’m so– sorry. Um… so, doctor, what are my results?
Finn: Baby, we are all concerned about sheila. And knowing that she got away from the police yet again is beyond frustrating. But she will be caught.
Steffy: I keep telling myself that. How one day sheila will be behind bars for the rest of her miserable life. But until then, I am gonna be freaked out.
Finn: Until then, until then we’ll stay vigilant. Look, I don’t want you worrying. Okay? Definitely not during the holidays, when the kids are so excited. Our family has never meant more to us. I will always be here to protect you and our kids.
Ridge: I don’t like that you’re worried about me.
Eric: I’m your father. I’ll always worry about you.
Ridge: Okay, but at this point in my life, I– I should have my act together, I think.
Eric: Well, if you’re referring to your personal life, yes, um, I would agree with that. Although when it comes to my track record, I really can’t be a judge, can I?
Ridge: See, that’s why I took some time off. To try to figure out why I did what I did, the choices I made, and maybe try to figure out what’s next, you know?
Eric: Yeah. So, what happened? And you and brooke and taylor in the same room at the same time. What happened?
Katie: Well, I have to admit, I put these appointments off because I always go to the worst case scenario. And I know that… you know, I have to face my own mortality and I’m living on borrowed time as a transplant survivor. So, yeah, yeah, I don’t I don’t like coming to these appointments because i don’t like feeling that way.
Grace: Your results from your latest test. They’re all very positive.
Grace: As you know, heart transplant rejection can happen at any point. It could be days. It could be weeks. It could be months. Years after the surgery. Even with the immunosuppressant drugs your on. But I’m happy to say there are no indications of rejection whatsoever. You have a very healthy heart. You’re doing well, katie.
Katie: I really am okay?
Grace: Yes. You’re really okay. And I’d go as far to say that you’re a walking miracle.
Carter: This is amazing, katie.
Grace: I’m so happy you have a wonderful support system, katie.
Katie: Me too.
Grace: So, go. Live your best life.
[Phone buzzing] I have another consult. I’m sorry. You’ll both have to excuse me.
Katie: Oh, yes, of course. Thank you.
Grace: Take your time.
Katie: Thank you so much.
Carter: So, it doesn’t get better than this, right? Clean bill of health for the holidays.
Katie: Yeah. Oh, man, I can’t even tell you how stressed out I’ve been about this appointment.
Carter: Well, it’s not like you let anyone on.
Katie: Well, you know, I didn’t want to worry anyone. You, you know, but I do have to admit that when I saw you walk through the door. I knew that you would be here for me. I just can’t thank you enough, carter.
Eric: So they dumped you? Wait, brooke and taylor dumped you?
Ridge: Yeah, why don’t you say it one more time? I didn’t expect that either. Look, can I say something?
Eric: Sure. Go ahead.
Ridge: Seeing these two amazing women standing there so strong and so convinced in what they were doing. I–I… was really proud of them.
Eric: This is going to be a big shift in your life, isn’t it?
Ridge: Yeah, and that– that word you said, untethered. That’s– that’s how I feel right now,
Eric: Uh-huh. I can only imagine. Especially now with the, uh… with the holidays upon us.
Ridge: I’m going to be okay.
Eric: I think you will be. You have me. You have your old man. You got your family. You’ve got this house. This is your home, too. We’ll all be here. I want you to make A… I want you to make an appearance on christmas.
Charlie: Ho, ho, ho!
Pam: Hey, we’re back from the north pole with all the fixings
Eric: Did you, uh, you buy out the whole store? Look at you.
Pam: Well, of course we did. It’s the annual forester christmas bash. Got to go all out. We sure hope that you’re going to be joining us, ridge.
Charlie: Yeah, uh, you know, pammy and I heard about brooke and taylor.
Pam: Heck, the whole office heard, ridge, which is why you need your family more than ever right now.
Eric: Pam’s right. I want you to make an appearance here at christmas.
Finn: Hey, we should go see the decorations downtown this weekend. We’ll get you on some ice skates.
Kelly: Yeah! Mom, too?
Steffy: Uh, yeah! Who do you think think’s going to teach you?
Finn: Anyway, hey. Won’t be long. Santa is going to visit.
Kelly: I know. Hayes is so excited. I think he wants to see rudolph.
Finn: Uh, well, yeah, everyone wants to see rudolph with that nose so bright thing he’s got going on.
Kelly: Douglas says rudolph’s nose is red ’cause it’s cold at the north pole.
Steffy: Yeah, I think douglas is right.
Kelly: Then why aren’t the other reindeer’s noses red too?
Steffy: Uh, you want to take this one, finn?
Finn: Uh, yeah, I think, um… why don’t you ask your dad that when you’re with him on christmas. And I think liam can answer that question. Steffy: Wow, talk about passing the buck.
Finn: Anyway, when santa comes down the chimney, what are you hoping he brings you?
Kelly: The only thing I want for christmas I already have: All of us together.
Steffy: [Indistinct] Oh, you are so cute. Oh, my god. (Grump) today is a great day to show up for yourself.
Eric: Pam’s right. You know… ridge? I would really like for you to stop by christmas.
Pam: Look, if you’re just worried about running into brooke… I know she did just kind of give you the old heave ho.
>>Charlie: But– but she didn’t totally reject you, right? I mean, you guys are still speaking.
>>Eric: All right, you two. Look, you need to take all that in the kitchen before it starts to–
Pam: Someone’s telling us to skedaddle.
Charlie: Ah, is that the same as am-scray?
Charlie: Come on. That fruitcake ain’t gonna bake itself.
Ridge: So– so– so it’s definite. Brooke is going to be here for christmas.
Eric: Well, donna’s living here with me now. And so quite naturally, her sisters will join us. Look, ridge, in spite of everything that’s happened, I’m quite certain that brooke would love to see you at christmas.
Steffy: You know, finn and i couldn’t be more proud of you.
Finn: You realized the true meaning of christmas. It’s family, friends, togetherness. Steffy: Kindness, generosity, forgiveness. You still can be excited about santa claus.
Finn: You are excited about santa, right?
Steffy: Good. Because you’ve been such a wonderful little girl this year.
Kelly: I’m not so little anymore.
Finn: I mean, she’s right, before you know it, she’s–
Steffy: Don’t say it.
Finn: She’s gonna be too old for me to do this.
[Giggling] Got you.
Kelly: You think santa got hayes’ christmas letter?
Steffy: Oh, the one you helped him with?
Kelly: He’s been really good this year, too.
Finn: Yeah. I mean, you know what I think? Not only did the big guy in the north pole get hayes’ letter, he’s putting something extra special in his bag for hayes’ big sister. So…
Steffy: Because you’ve been the best big sister a little brother could have.
Kelly: I love hayes.
Finn: He loves you.
Steffy: And love is what christmas is all about.
Kelly: You know what I said before?
Steffy: About celebrating christmas? How that and being happy is all that really matters?
>Kelly: My family’s the best. And this is the best christmas ever.
Steffy: Oh, my goodness. I love you.
Brooke: Well, if I hurry, I can still make the rest of that publicity meeting.
Carter: Why? You told them you’d miss it. Why not take a minute, relax, and bask in the good news? What?
Brooke: Nothing. It’s just…
>>Carter: Come here.
>>Brooke: No, really, I’m okay.
Carter: Come here, come here, come here, come here. Sit down. You have to relax, okay? You don’t have to carry this stress anymore. You got the best possible report from your doctor.
Brooke: I know.
>>Carter: You trust me?
Carter: Close your eyes.
Brooke: Not sure I trust you.
Carter: It’s either you trust me, you don’T.
Carter: Good. Now take a nice deep breath. Hold it. And slowly release.
Brooke: Okay. Thank you. I forgot to breathe sometimes.
Carter: We all do. Listen, katie, you don’t have to go through this by yourself. I’m not talking about the doctor’s appointment. I’m talking about all the worrying leading up to it. I wish you’d opened up to me. Let me help.
Brooke: You helped just by being there.
Carter: Good. Because I want you to know that whether you’re having good times or not so good ones, whether you’re happy, sad, angry, anxious, or whatever it is you’re feeling right now. I want to be there for you. I realize you’ve been going it alone for a while now. And like I said… you don’t have to be alone anymore. I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,
Carter: Now I don’t have a jet or a yacht…
[Both chuckling] I don’t even think there’s any way for me to express how much those things don’t mean to me. I can’t even tell you how many days, weeks, I felt so isolated in my relationship. Not anymore. No way. I have been given a new lease on life. I am going to use storm’s heart in the best way I know how. Live life to the fullest. I want to laugh. I want to dance. Although you might not want to see that. I’m going to work really hard and I am going to raise my son. Mostly… I am going to love… fully… and completely. Thank you.
Ridge: I screwed up, dad. I screwed up. Over and over again. And I’ve…
[Indistinct], They told me so. I’ve been in love with two women for most of my adult life. They were there for me and I… I couldn’t choose one of them. Couldn’t make a choice. Why would they put up with that?
Eric: Because they both loved you so deeply. That’s why.
Ridge: I loved them too. Still do. I let them down over and over again. Turned their families upside down. That’s what I mean. I gotta… I gotta change this. I… I gotta find a way to be a better man.
Eric: Well… whether you accomplish that or not…
[Chuckling] I’ll still be your old man. Right?
Ridge: I love you.
Eric: I love you, too, boy.
Ridge: Thank you so much.
Eric: Oh, boy.
Steffy: Kelly’s making christmas cards for her two grandmas and grandpa ridge.
Finn: And I made us some eggnog from eric’s recipe.
Steffy: Stop. You didn’T.
Finn: I did. Although it’s a much lighter pour than your grandfather’S. And I set some aside for the kids later. Some regular eggnog.
Steffy: It’s really beginning to look a lot like christmas.
Finn: Yeah. I mean, the tree is decorated, the presents are wrapped, and stockings are hung by the chimney with care.
Steffy: I keep thinking about kelly’s wise words. She’s right, you know. This is the greatest christmas ever, because… we’re together. When I think about what happened that day in monaco. It was the most miraculous of miracles.
Steffy: See you standing there…
Steffy: It was truly the greatest gift imaginable.
Finn: It’s me. I found you. It’s me. It’s really me.
Steffy: Oh, my god. I love you. So much. Merry christmas.
