Nick: Thanks for meeting me. Sorry I could only fit in coffee today.
Sally: It’s no problem. I know it’s close to christmas and you have a lot of family obligations.
Nick: Yeah, I got a lot going on. I’ll tell you, christian is starting to ask me some pretty tough questions.
Sally: Uh-oh. Like, “what’s in the eggnog?” Or, “how do you make those little popcorn strings for the tree?” Actually, I want to know the answer to the eggnog question.
Nick: Egg yolk, milk, whipped cream, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. And then throw in some alcohol if you want the big-boy version.
Summer: Uh, yum. Why are we not drinking that right now?
Nick: I mean, that does sound good, but that’s not one of the questions christian was asking me.
Sally: [ Sighs ] What did he want to know?
Nick: Started off pretty innocently. Uh, he wanted to know, you know, how could we be sure that santa had christian’s list for everything he wanted.
Nick: Which then led to, “how could santa possibly read all the letters from all the kids from around the world?” And then the tough one — “how could the big guy in the red suit make all those deliveries on christmas eve in one night?”
Sally: Sounds like you endured the santa inquisition.
Nick: Whew, it was tough. I mean, the kid was trying to pin me down.
Sally: What’d you end up telling him?
Nick: I went with, uh, “there’s no easy explanation. It’s just, uh — it’s just that magical.”
Nick: Yeah. Yeah. I felt good about it.
Sally: Yeah, you seem pretty proud of yourself.
Nick: Yeah. But it’s true. You know, with christmas and in life, sometimes you just got to believe in the magic.
Sally: [ Chuckles ]
Billy: Sorry we’re late.
Chelsea: Oh, don’t be silly. Come on in. Connor, can you come out here, please? Johnny and billy are here. They’ll be out in a minute. He’s playing some video game.
Johnny: Oh, “legendary odyssey”?
Chelsea: That’s the one.
Chelsea: Well, I’m so glad you guys are here. Thanks for coming over.
Billy: Yeah, of course. Uh, happy to — happy to be here. Happy holidays, of course. Uh, you want to want to share your gifts?
Johnny: Yeah. Um, for connor and for you.
Chelsea: That’s so sweet. You didn’t have to do that.
Johnny: Well, I…
we wanted to, and, uh, dad said you had one for me, so I just figured…
Chelsea: I do. I do. Here you go.
Johnny: Thank you. Merry christmas.
Chelsea: Merry christmas to you, too.
Daniel: Hey! Hey!
Sally: Hey you!
Daniel: Wow! Ahh.
Summer: How long has it been since we’ve spent christmas eve together? So good to see you.
Daniel: Oh, thank you for having me. Wow. Oh, my god. This place looks exactly like i remember it.
Summer: Mm. [ Chuckles ]
Kyle: Merry christmas, daniel.
Daniel: Merry christmas to you, too.
Kyle: [ Chuckles ] And a belated welcome back to genoa city. I’m sorry we haven’t had a chance to get together sooner.
Daniel: Oh, I know. Seriously, man. You know, I’ve been home for, what, a couple weeks, and I had to track you down and come to you.
Kyle: Well, I guess your wedding invitation got lost in the mail.
Summer: [ Laughs ]
Daniel: Which one now?
Kyle: Okay, maybe we’ll have another ceremony just for you.
Kyle: But seriously, man, you were missed.
Daniel: Well, it’s good to be home.
[ Chuckles ]
Kyle: You settling in okay?
Daniel: Yeah. So far, so good.
Summer: Oh, come on. Don’t be so modest. You’re already making waves in the business world.
Daniel: Well, I wouldn’t go that far yet.
Kyle: Well, have a seat.
Daniel: Thank you.
Kyle: Summer tells me you’re working on a big project for chancellor-winters.
Daniel: Ah, it’s true. It’s very true. Um, and I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity.
Kyle: Well, I’d love to hear about it. Another time. We were just about to head out.
Summer: Well, daniel wouldn’t tell you about the project anyway because apparently it is top secret. He won’t even give me a hint.
Daniel: Now that it’s official, it’s not so big of a secret anymore. I’m gonna be heading up a new gaming division at chancellor-winters.
Summer: That’s amazing!
Kyle: Yeah, that’s great news. Congrats, man.
Daniel: Thank you. Thank you.
Daniel: Yeah. Look, I can fill you in on all the details another time, whenever you get back from wherever. Where are you going? What are you doing?
Kyle: It’s, uh… it’s a secret.
Johnny: What level are you on?
Connor: Still stuck on level eight.
Johnny: I just figured out how to get to level nine.
Connor: Cool. Show me.
Johnny: Yeah. [ Chuckles ]
Billy: I mean, that’s pretty adorable.
Chelsea: I know. I love it. I really do.
Adam: [ Exhales sharply ] Oh, you have been a busy elf. This is the very picture of the christmas spirit. Covid-19 moves fast and now you can too
Summer: We are going on a little surprise adventure with harrison tonight.
Kyle: Yeah, maybe we’ll see some reindeer or santa, but we’ll be back in time to spend christmas day with the families.
Daniel: Ah. Sounds good. Bet he’s gonna get a kick out of that.
Kyle: Yeah. Speaking of which, I’m going to go upstairs and check on him and make sure he has everything we need for our little trip.
Summer: Hey. I know how difficult it must be to be away from lucy and heather on the holidays. You’ve been pretty vague about the source of tension between you guys, but do you want to tell me any more about what happened?
Sally: You really are great at the whole dad thing. And your children obviously adore you.
Nick: Eh, it’s not always easy, but my kids are absolutely everything to me.
Summer: It’s faith’s first christmas away from the nest, isn’t it? How are you doing with that?
Nick: Miss her like crazy.
[ Chuckles ] But that’s the thing with parenting — you know, your job, if you do it well, is to send your kids out into the world, you know, help them be independent. And if they do that, success, sadly, is not having them around much.
Sally: Yeah. Yeah, I could see how that could be hard.
Nick: Yeah. I’m happy for faith, you know? Getting to spend the holidays in the swiss alps with her roommate is awesome for her. But it means I don’t get to have her here with me, and I hate that.
Sally: Yeah, it makes perfect sense.
Nick: You got to let them go, you know? And if you get lucky, they come back, you know, for a while. Noah’s proof of that.
Sally: Yeah. I mean, you have one son who runs his own nightclub and another one who keeps pressing you on the logistics of santa’s mission. It’s a — it’s a pretty big age range.
Nick: Yeah. You calling me out for that?
[ Both laugh ]
Sally: No, no, not at all. I-I’m calling you versatile. A man who can pal around with his adult kids, raise his young ones, and knows the recipe for eggnog? Geez, man. Sign me up.
Nick: That’s a good save. I’ll take it. Each of my kids is an incredible gift. You know, being a parent is the best thing I’ll ever do. You know, I have to admit, I’ve never actually seen it up close, a parent who actually loves being a parent.
[ Door closes ]
Billy: Chelsea was kind enough to give johnny a christmas present, so he wanted to reciprocate. And it was a, uh — it was a big step.
Adam: Right. Yeah, I, uh — I get it. I was serious when I said there was a good christmas vibe when i walked in here.
Billy: So, you’re just stopping by?
Chelsea: No. Adam came to pick up connor and me and take us to dinner. It was something we had planned earlier.
Billy: I didn’t know.
Adam: Yeah. But it is really nice the boys are getting along so well. I’m genuinely happy that they’re building a friendship together. So, I don’t want to interrupt that good time. If you guys were in the middle of opening presents, we can always go later.
Billy: No. It’s all good.
Adam: Hey! You ready to, uh, get some dinner?
Connor: Yeah. Can johnny come with us?
Adam: I’m fine with that, if it’s okay with johnny’s dad.
Chelsea: Well, why don’t both johnny and billy join us for dinner?
Billy: I appreciate that, but I’m gonna have to pass tonight.
Johnny: But I can go, right?
Nick: What do you mean when you say you’ve never seen a parent who loves being a parent?
Sally: [ Chuckles ] Um… well, I’ve never really told you much about my childhood. So, prepare yourself for a very different kind of holiday story.
Nick: [ Chuckles ] Okay.
Sally: [ Clears throat ] ‘Twas the night before christmas, and it was just like any other damn night. Not a creature was stirring. But the carnies were drinking and carrying on.
Nick: You say carnies?
Sally: [ Sighs, chuckles ] Yeah. Yeah. My parents were legit carnival workers.
Nick: Like in a circus?
Sally: Well, a circus definitely would have been a step up. We had more of, like, a county fair vibe. But, uh, yeah, we were nomads traveling from one small town to the next.
Nick: Wow. I can’t even imagine what that was like for you. Did you go to school?
Sally: No. We were more or less left to educate ourselves. But I did actually learn a lot about engineering from watching the tilt-a-whirl be put together and torn apart every time we relocated.
Nick: Did you have friends?
Sally: Um…the tilt-a-whirl guy was — he was actually really cool.
[ Both laugh ] Um, but kids my own age, um… no. My sister coco and I used to sit behind the concession booth, and we would just watch other little girls eating their cotton candy with their doting parents. And, you know, we would just wonder what their lives were like.
Nick: It’s like you lived in your own little world.
Sally: Yeah, exactly. So, you know, when the holidays rolled around… suffice it to say that coco and I were not tucked in our beds with visions of sugarplums dancing in our heads. We were sleeping in tents and shoveling up after horses and elephants ’cause, you know, show business.
[ Chuckles ] Yeah. Our idea of a christmas miracle was not finding a clown passed out in our bunk.
Nick: Right. Yeah, that sounds, um… interesting and alarming.
Sally: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. I mean, I have to say it, it had its moments. But, um…
[ Sighs ] Our parents were always getting into trouble. And not the fun kind. And so, yeah, one day it just… caught up with them. And they just took off. To all a good night.
Nick: So, they just abandoned you?
Sally: Um…yeah. Yeah, but, you know, it was — it was a long time ago, and I — I’ve made peace with it. But that is where my rather unique perspective of parenthood comes from.
Nick: I’m sorry you went through that, sally. Every kid deserves parents who sees bringing a child into this world as the miracle that it is.
Johnny: Come on, dad. Please? I’ve been trying to get connor to the next level in “legendary odyssey,” and it takes a ton of explaining.
Billy: Oh, I see how that works. So, it’s gonna take the entire dinner to explain it to him?
Chelsea: Ooh, gaming talk at the table — my favorite.
Billy: Yeah, not really in the christmas spirit of things, right? That’s kind of rude.
Johnny: Or I think of it this way. Connor and I will be out of your hair, and you adults can talk about whatever you want.
Connor: It’s a win-win.
Billy: Alright. You can go.
Chelsea: Are you sure?
Billy: Yes I will explain to victoria that connor’s video gaming future depends on it, you know? It’s alright. I’ll talk to her. She’ll be okay.
Chelsea: Alright. Grab your coats, please.
Adam: Are you sure victoria’s gonna be okay with this? Because I know my sister, and i find that hard to believe, billy.
Billy: I’ll talk to her. Do me a favor. Can you drop off johnny at my place after?
Chelsea: Thank you both for this. It’s a nice way to kick off the holiday.
Daniel: You know, now is not the time for this conversation. You go have fun with your family. Don’t worry about me. I’m confident that, you know, things with lucy and heather — they’re — they’re gonna work out. And right now, I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be. I’m here with the rest of my family. And starting this new project — I mean, that’s gonna change the whole trajectory of my life. So, things are good.
Summer: Well, I’m glad. And, honestly, I am thrilled that you have found this new outlet for your creativity. Launching the chancellor-winters gaming division? That’s a huge deal. And I hope things go just as well in your personal life.
Kyle: Harrison wants to finish his cartoon. Then we can leave.
Daniel: Oh. Well, in that case, uh, have a safe journey and a merry christmas.
Summer: Well, I definitely plan on spending some hardcore quality time with you and mom on christmas day.
Daniel: I’m gonna hold you to that.
Kyle: Hey, merry christmas, man.
Daniel: Merry christmas.
Kyle: [ Sighs ] Is everything okay with daniel?
Summer: Yeah. I think so. Are you ready for a big adventure?
Kyle: Ooh, I sure am. Harrison’s gonna be thrilled. Let’s do this.
Victoria: Hi. Where’s johnny?
Billy: He’s upstairs. And before you jump to conclusions —
Victoria: Please don’t tell me that you left him with chelsea.
Billy: Okay, just hold on a second, okay?
Victoria: You know, billy, I’ve been more than understanding. I went along with you taking johnny to get a gift for chelsea. I even agreed to her giving johnny his present in person.
Billy: Just let me explain for a second. ‘Cause I think you’ll actually be really proud of your son. He gave chelsea her gift, and it meant the world to her. And I could tell that he felt really good doing it. And I didn’t just leave him up there with chelsea. Connor and adam are there, too, and they plan on going to dinner together. Johnny really wanted to join them, so I said yes. They’re getting along so well, I saw no reason to say no.
Victoria: Are you serious right now? Johnny is with chelsea and adam? What were you thinking?
[ Sighs ] This cough.
Billy: Johnny wanted to join them for dinner, and we agreed that we would follow johnny’s lead when it comes to chelsea.
Victoria: Yes, but going to dinner with both chelsea and adam together — that’s a lot.
Billy: If they’re going to a public restaurant, okay, nothing bad is gonna happen.
Victoria: Yes, but that’s not the point. It’s christmas and christmas is supposed to be for family and you just sent johnny off with them.
Billy: I hear you, okay? I know this is difficult for you. And I’m sorry if I overstepped. I should have asked you first. But we need to accept that adam and chelsea and connor — they’re johnny’s family, too.
Victoria: [ Sighs ] I know. And I’m trying to do that, but it’s really difficult for me. You’re johnny’s biological father. Your relationship with him hasn’t changed, but — but mine has.
Billy: I don’t know if that’s entirely true. I mean, johnny’s known almost his entire life that you didn’t give birth to him. And you are still his mom. And even after finding out the truth about chelsea, nothing’s changed. You’re still his mom.
Victoria: Yeah, and so is chelsea, biologically. I’m really worried if they start to get closer that — I worry that the lines will get blurred.
Billy: I don’t know. The way I see it, chelsea is just another part of his big, extended family. And I think he views it the same way.
Victoria: I hope so, billy. But this isn’t the same as him going to dinner with — with nick or the abbotts. I mean, this isn’t just about chelsea. I mean, the tension between adam and my family has really ratcheted up lately. And this is an — it’s an emotionally loaded situation.
Billy: Oh, I agree. But connor and chelsea — they’re part of his world. I get it. He’s up there with adam right now, okay? And I’m not a fan of adam’s, alright? I’m the exact opposite of that. But I have to figure out how to be cordial for everyone’s sake, most importantly, the boys.
Victoria: Yes, but there has to be a happy medium. I mean, you can still be a nice person and not be a pushover. We say no to johnny about other things all the time.
Billy: They’re just gonna go for dinner, okay? And those boys — they’re actually starting to get along really well. After finding out that they’re biological half-brothers, they’re actually closer than they’ve ever been.
Victoria: I know. I don’t have an issue with johnny spending time with connor.
Billy: And as far as chelsea, you have spent some time with her. And I think you would agree that emotionally she’s stronger.
Victoria: Well, that was not my big takeaway from her apology. But I do appreciate that she made the effort.
Billy: And compared to a few months ago, she’s made some pretty amazing strides. And I don’t think anything negative is gonna come from her and johnny spending a little time together, okay? I really believe that. And that’s our son. And this is what he wants. We have to support him.
Victoria: Alright. I hear what you’re saying. But I need to see that for myself.
You okay? You sure you’re ready for this?
Chelsea: How about we take that table right there, hmm?
Chelsea: [ Exhales sharply ] Connor, napkin. We’re not camping. And put your phone away, please.
Adam: Well, I hope you boys worked up an appetite.
Connor: I’m starving.
Johnny: Yeah, me too.
Chelsea: I love the menu here. Everything is delicious. Except — no cilantro. It’s just not my thing.
Johnny: Yeah. Does it taste like soap to you?
Chelsea: It does.
Johnny: Yeah, me too.
Connor: Same with me.
[ Both chuckle ]
Summer: I’m glad you got a good nap in. You closed your eyes, and then — poof! — We’re here.
Kyle: Ahh, look at all this snow! It’s a white christmas! Hopefully there’s enough for us to go sledding. Ooh, you want to see your big surprise? Mom?
Harrison: Dee dee!
Kyle: [ Chuckles ] Uh…mom?
[ Door closes ] Hey, mom? She’s not here.
[ Sighs ] Want your clothes to smell freshly
“The young and the restless”
will continue. With directv I can get live tvand on demand together:
Sally: It’s not like I grew up on the streets or anything or without love. I went to live with my grams, who basically raised me.
Nick: What was grams like?
Sally: [ Sighs ] She — [ Chuckles ] She is the most generous and caring woman. She’s a little rough around the edges. But she is strong and fearless, and she gives me unconditional support even when I’m doing something totally nuts.
Nick: I’m glad you have someone in your corner.
Sally: Yeah, me too. And it wasn’t just her. I idolized my great aunt sally, my namesake — and, not to mention, a famous designer. I had these two really strong women who were my teachers and my inspiration.
Nick: Well, it sounds like a much better life than a carnie life.
Sally: Yeah. I mean, the money was tight sometimes, but — I don’t know — I feel like it was kind of a blessing because it taught me to be creative and it turned me into a scrapper.
Nick: Nothing wrong with being a scrapper.
Sally: I always felt safe. You know, there was something really special about growing up in a household that was just 100% female because it never crossed my mind that there was anything that a woman can’t do or that I should wait for some prince to ride in on his white horse and save me when the going got rough. Anyway, I’m — I’M… I’m really happy with the way things turned out.
Nick: I am, too.
Summer: [ Chuckles ] Anyway, enough about my past, as entertaining as it might be.
Nick: It’s pretty entertaining.
Sally: Yeah, yeah, I know.
Nick: [ Laughs ]
Sally: I know. I really want to talk about the whole christmas present thing.
Nick: Ooh. Alright. Let’s get into it. What about it?
Sally: Okay. Just that we have made a big point of taking things slow, so I just really wasn’t sure what’s appropriate, gift wise, you know? I mean, if we’re following our relationship guidelines, it seems like there should be some limitations.
Nick: Yeah, yeah, yeah, if we’re following the, uh, spirit of the agreement.
Sally: Right. There should be severe limitations.
Nick: Yes. Are you giving me a hint that this is something that I should not go overboard on, like, with a gift?
Sally: I just want to make sure that you don’t do anything that’s over the top. ‘Cause you know how people say — they do the thing where it’s like, “oh, yeah, no expensive gifts,” and then one person doesn’t follow the rules and… I just — you know, you didn’t — you didn’t do that, right?
Nick: No, I wouldn’t do that to you.
Sally: Okay. Good.
Nick: We’re not talking about this because that’s what you did for me, right?
Sally: No, no, no. I mean, you know, I — no. I just want to make sure we’re in sync.
Nick: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I feel real good about my gift choice for you.
Sally: Oh. Good. Me too. You’re really gonna love your coffee mug. It’s got a really funny quote on it. I would tell you what it says, but I don’t want to ruin the surprise, you know?
Nick: Yeah. Okay. Well, I know you’re just gonna love your book of sudoku. I mean, it’s hours of entertainment.
Sally: Ooh. It’s snowing.
Sally: [ Chuckles ]
Nick: Seems like, uh, perfect timing.
Sally: Yeah. Except for I totally forgot to put on my snow tires.
Nick: Ah, that’s a minor obstacle. We’ll just catch a ride with santa. I’m choosing to believe in the magical.
Summer: I know how difficult it must be to be away from lucy and heather on the holidays. You’ve been pretty vague about the source of tension between you guys, but do you want to tell me any more about what happened?
Kyle: Um, there was just a little mix-up, but we’re gonna get it worked out.
Summer: Yeah. How about we have a juice box in the meantime?
Kyle: Yeah. I’m gonna reach out to my dad.
[ Door opens ]
Harrison: Dee dee!
Diane: Hi! You’re here! Ah!
Kyle: We were a little worried when we didn’t see you.
Diane: Oh, I’m sorry. Hey! I took a walk, and the snow is so beautiful. I had to stop and take it in. And then I saw your car, and i just rushed right back.
Summer: We thought we would go on a christmas eve adventure.
Diane: Ah. This is the best surprise. Merry christmas.
Kyle: Aww, merry christmas.
Diane: [ Chuckles ]
[ Lock whirs, disengages ]
Jack: I honestly thought that’s where diane would go to hide out.
Jeremy: You said you knew where she was.
Jack: I said I knew her. Obviously, that wasn’t the case. This woman faked her death and was gone for years. I only knew she was alive when she told me. Look, she’s obviously developed some disappearing skills.
Jeremy: Look, I admit she is a clever woman, but is she more clever than the both of us?
Jack: You tell me. I’m as lost in this as you are.
Jeremy: Look, I’m not so sure about that. I would hate to think that you led me on a wild goose chase. If you think all pads are exactly the same…
Jack: It is not my fault that diane is good at covering her tracks. You’re the one that made her flee. Look, as I’ve made abundantly clear, I just want this to end. This woman comes back to town and says she’s changed her life, that she’s lived this modest life in L.A., Transforming herself, making all these changes. None of it was true. It was lie after lie.
Jeremy: I suppose we’ve all been subjected to her lies.
Jack: Okay, I just want my life back. She drew you to town. You obviously want revenge and you want money. Diane convinced the whole world she was dead for years. Good luck finding her. I already said that I would cover her debts.
Jeremy: No, thanks.
Jack: What if I doubled my offer? $1,000,000 to forget diane and move on. Half the money’s in the briefcase there. I can get you the other half day after christmas. It’s a heck of a lot more than you’re gonna get directly from diane, if you ever manage to track her down. You just got out of prison. You can do anything you want. Why waste any more of your time on diane?
Kyle: Okay. Alright.
Kyle: You ready?
Summer: [ Laughs ]
Kyle: Let’s watch. One, two, three.
Diane: Ah! It’s fantastic!
Summer: Oh, it really is. How did you guys find such a perfect tree?
Kyle: Well, harrison picked it out. He knew it was the right one. Kid’s got a good eye.
Summer: All we have to do is decorate it, and I think that we have some ornaments in the kitchen, so why don’t you come with me and we’ll go get them?
Kyle: [ Laughs ]
Diane: Is everything okay back home?
Kyle: I’ll work it out. Okay.
Diane: Ah, this is the most special christmas ever.
Kyle: [ Laughs ]
Diane: Hey, can I help you decorate?
Diane: Here. Let me see. Wow. Hey, harrison, you want to put this one on? I guess you’ve got some other ones.
Harrison: No, I want to do the reindeer holding —
Diane: Okay. Do him. Alright. You want me to hold the mushroom while you do the reindeer?
Harrison: No, no, no, he holds the mushroom.
Diane: Oh, okay. Well, let’s put it on here.
Harrison: Look at what — no, he’s holding a marshmallow, too.
[ Laughter ]
Billy: I’m telling you, there’s nothing to be upset about.
[ Indistinct conversations ]
Chelsea: That’s funny.
[ Laughter ]
Adam: It’s funny, isn’t it?
Chelsea: I think — it is. That is very funny, actually.
Billy: See? It’s all good.
I’ll remember that chapter
of my life forever.
Kyle: Well, this isn’t exactly how I thought I’d be spending christmas, but each year is always a little different. I’ve loved every one of them. The holidays you and I spent together when I was little, just the two of us. And all the times I went to the big annual abbott celebration.
Kyle: You know, my dad is always a rock for our family whenever he brings everyone together. It’s impossible not to feel the love and warmth.
Summer: I’ve always felt that, too, at your house whenever I’ve spent the holidays there. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I love christmas at the ranch, too. The newmans know how to do christmas very well.
Kyle: I’ll give you that.
[ Chuckles ]
Summer: You know, we are so lucky to have such special families who love us so much.
Kyle: Mm. Couldn’t agree more.
Diane: I may have a complicated relationship with some of the people in both of your families, but, um, I’m working on it, and I’m not going to stop until things are better. You know, when I spent all those christmases alone in L.A., I never imagined that a moment like this would be possible.
Kyle: Putting the star on top of the tree is a christmas tradition and a special honor. You want to do it, harrison? Yeah? Okay.
[ Laughter ] Okay. Here’s the star.
Diane: Okay. Ah!
Diane: Perfect! Ah!
Harrison: I didn’t put the star on.
Summer: [ Laughs ]
Diane: The tree is stunning. My grandson is stunning. I’m with my son and his beautiful wife. This might not be the most traditional christmas, but it’s the most wonderful one I could imagine. It’s everything I’ve dreamed about for so long. Ah.
Harrison: I made a hat.
Diane: You did.
[ Laughter ]
Jack: So, what do you say? We have a deal?
Jeremy: Alright. You talked me into it. I’ll keep this cash and stick around long enough until you get the rest.
Jack: I’m glad you’re listening to reason.
Jeremy: [ Chuckles ] What can I say? You made me an offer that’s hard to refuse.
Jack: I will have the other half the day after christmas.
Jeremy: And I’ll be out of your lives. Consider it an early christmas present, one that you clearly want.
Jack: Just as you want to stay out of prison. And I’m sure you’re smart enough not to jeopardize that.
Nick: I’m glad we had this talk.
Sally: Yeah, spending time with you is always good.
[ Clears throat ]
Nick: You okay? What’s wrong?
Summer: Uh, I’m not sure. But, um, no more — no more coffee for me. It’s definitely not agreeing with me.
Nick: Okay. Do you want to get out of here?
Summer: Uh, yeah. Yeah, I think so.
Nick: I’ll throw these away.
[ Exhales sharply ]
[ Clears throat ]
Billy: Hey, boys. How are you doing?
Johnny: Good. How are you?
Victoria: Hi. Are you guys having fun?
Billy: So, what’d you eat?
Johnny: Uh, chicken quesadillas.
Billy: Ahh. That’s good. And how’s the video game conference going? Have you figured out how to crack level eight yet?
Connor: We’re working on it.
Billy: [ Chuckles ]
Johnny: Yeah, I’m giving him tips.
Billy: I’m sure you are.
Chelsea: Are you hungry? Why don’t you sit down and join us?
Adam: Yeah. Let me pull up an extra chair.
Victoria: Oh, thank you.
Billy: Check it out. It’s actually starting to snow out there finally.
Victoria: Oh, wow.
Billy: It’s starting to feel like christmas.
[ Knock on door ]
[ Cellphone thuds ] Dad.
Danny: Merry christmas, son.
[ Laughs ]
