All: Cheers! Merry christmas!

Mariah: Noah, thank you so much for putting this together. It’s a very unique way to spend christmas eve — you know, fun, festive, family nightcap before the chaos of tomorrow morning.

Noah: Yeah, what’s the point of owning a club if you don’t put it to good use every once in a while? And I thank you all for coming. We should make this a tradition, all the grown-ups getting together christmas eve. That would be fun.

Nick: Yeah, we’ll see.

Noah: Okay, what’s that supposed to mean?

[ Laughter ]

Nick: I’m just saying, a lot can happen from now and then. You know, we don’t know where we’re gonna be, what we’re gonna be doing. I say we just enjoy tonight for what it is.

Tessa: Hear, hear!

Sharon: Hear, hear!

Mariah: Hear, hear!

Sharon: I am just so grateful that you put this together, noah. I was feeling a little bit lonely tonight.

Noah: To rey.

Sharon: Yes, to rey.

All: To rey!

Sharon: Thank you. You know, it’s been quiet around the house with faith being away, but I know she is having the time of her life in europe.

Noah: When did she get so old? I feel like just last week faith was this little girl getting lost in the woods, needing to be rescued.

Nick: That’s what happens when you get older. Time moves very quickly.

Mariah: But seriously, when did she get so sophisticated? She’s like a jet-setter now.

Tessa: And by “sophisticated,” you mean more sophisticated than us?

Mariah: Yes. Yes. I would love to be skiing in the alps.

Tessa: Babe, you don’t ski.

Mariah: I would like to be doing something in the alps.

[ Light laughter ]

Sharon: Nick, it’s nice that you have christian. You can get a little bit of that christmas magic at your house.

Mariah: Okay, I have to ask. How tough was it to get him to sleep tonight, on a scale of 1 to 10?

Nick: Christian’s a cakewalk compared to that dude.

Mariah: Wow!

Sharon: Oh, yeah, that is true. Noah, you were the worst.

Nick: The absolute worst. It took forever to get him to go to bed, and then at about 3:30, he’d come knocking on the door.

Tessa: 3:30?!

Nick: Yep. Some years I’d feel like I just got my head on the pillow, and he’d come in screaming and hollering, saying he was ready to open presents.

Mariah: So, how did you get christian to sleep tonight?

Nick: Easy. Christian likes to know things. So, first we just kind of checked out, you know, online what reindeers prefer, oats to carrots.

Mariah: Mm.

Tessa: Carrots, obviously.

Noah: How is that obvious?

Nick: Well, you’ve done your own research. Then we checked out the santa tracker. Christian realized santa was still really far away, and he also knows that santa doesn’t show up until he’s asleep, so he went right to bed.

Mariah: Well, hopefully he doesn’t wake up at 3:30 like his brother used to.

Nick: Oh, man, let’s hope. But as annoying as it was, it was also really fun. You know, it’s the joy of the holiday season. I’m sure sharon can vouch for this, and you guys will all realize it someday, but there’s just nothing like seeing christmas through the eyes of a child.

Mariah: Ahh.

Noah: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Okay, how about you, uh, slow down there, you two?

Mariah: Excuse me. I’m not driving.

Tessa: Uh, another glass, and we might not be walking.

Noah: Yeah, well, let’s just save some for new year’s eve. I’m gonna run out of champagne with you two hanging around here. You guys need anything?

Nick: Uh, I’m good. Thanks.

Sharon: I’m actually gonna head home soon. I still have so much to prepare. Everything needs to be packed and ready to deliver to all the shelters. And of course, you two are going to be there in the morning to help me out, right?

Mariah: Mm-hmm. Yes, I promised that we would be there at the break of dawn.

Tessa: Wait, what?

Noah: I’ll be there, too. I could help out with deliveries.

Sharon: Oh, thank you, noah. I’m so glad that you’re all volunteering your time. You know, it feels really good to help people out, especially this time of year. And, nick, I know that you have a busy morning, but we’ll all meet at my house, say around noon?

Nick: Yeah, I’m betting christian opens up all his presents in about 6 minutes, so that’ll give us some time to play with everything, and then we’ll cruise over to your place. And then christian, noah, and i will then go to my parents’.

Mariah: That sounds like fun.

Nick: You are very welcome to join the newman family christmas. You can sit right next to my dad.

Mariah: Ohh, that’s so enticing, but, uh, I’m gonna be busy.

[ Laughter ]

Sharon: Alright, well, I’m going to head home. So, noah, thank you so much for a lovely evening.

Noah: Thank you, mom.

Sharon: And merry christmas to all and to all a good night.

Mariah: Merry christmas.

Sharon: Merry christmas. Do you two need a ride home?

Mariah: Uh…no. No, I think we’re just gonna stay here on this big comfy couch.

Noah: Uh, no, no, actually, I don’t think so. Sorry, it’s not the vibe I’m really going for. So, you don’t have to go home, but —

Nick: You can’t stay here.

Noah: Yes, exactly.

Sharon: Come on. I’ll give you a ride.

Tessa: Oh, no, that’s okay, sharon. I have a plan. We’re not staying here, but we’re not going home. When you’re through with powering through,

Sharon: Oh, how

Tessa: I booked a suite for us as a surprise for our very first christmas together as a married couple.

Sharon: Oh, how sweet.

Nick: Thoughtful and practical.

Tessa: Exactly. I packed an overnight bag for us. We’ll have everything we need. Room service will be there for late-night snacks, and we’ll have a rose-petal bath.

Mariah: Oh, my gosh. Okay, raise your hand if you feel like a queen.

[ Laughs ]

Tessa: And…

Mariah: Oh, there’s more?

Tessa: After our bath, we can lounge in our warm, fuzzy robes.

Mariah: [ Gasps ] I love those robes. They are the coziest. Oh, my gosh, I am so glad that i married you.

Noah: Good work, tess. Very romantic, prescient.

Tessa: Well, shall we?

Mariah: Yes. Let’s go.

Nick: Good night.

Mariah: Good night.

[ Laughter ]

Tessa: Okay. We were gonna be here all night, but now we’re leaving before sharon.

Mariah: Yeah, that’s ’cause i didn’t know that there was a suite downstairs waiting for us. We love you all. Merry christmas. We’ll see you in the morning.

Tessa: Yeah.

Mariah: We’re out of here.

Tessa: Merry christmas!

Noah: Good night.

Tessa: Whew. That was so loud. I bet you could hear it all the way to the north pole.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ] After I put on this robe, i couldn’t hear anything else. It’s like everything just quieted down. Think it has a built-in mute button?

Tessa: Uh, no, I don’t think that’s how sound or robes or anything works. But I love the giddy smile on your face. You’ve had it ever since you got out of the tub.

Mariah: Ah, it was luxurious. Thank you so much for this gift. I think we really needed it.

Tessa: Yes. You are welcome. And I do not feel bad that i enjoyed your gift as much as you did.

Mariah: Well, you know what this means now.

Tessa: What?

Mariah: We are officially a couple that exchanges one gift on christmas eve.

Tessa: Oh! I didn’t know that was a category.

Mariah: Yeah, it totally is.

Tessa: Hmm.

Mariah: And, uh, lucky for you, I got you something. I picked it up this morning. And I didn’t have time to put it under the tree, but this seemed like the perfect occasion.

Tessa: Okay. Wow. This is pretty.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

Tessa: [ Gasps ] Ooh. Ooh. “Have yourself a married little christmas. Mariah and tessa, 2022.”

Mariah: Do you get it?

Tessa: Uh, yeah. It’s because we’re married. It’s not that complicated.

Mariah: [ Laughs ] I know it’s corny, but I just thought that we should have something to commemorate our first christmas as wife and wife.

Tessa: I love it. It is perfect. And it could become a new tradition, a new inscribed ornament every year. Maybe next year it’ll say “baby’s first christmas.”

Mariah: We could be moms next year. How crazy is that?

Tessa: Can you imagine having the kind of christmas eve that nick gave christian? Ah, I mean, that’s how it should be for kids — just they’re so excited that they can’t even sleep the night before.

Mariah: I know. I didn’t personally have, uh, that magical “get ready for santa” christmas when I was growing up.

Tessa: Yeah, me neither. But we will make sure that our kid does. Decorating the tree. Wrapping presents. Baking cookies. But our well decorated home will be filled with the most important thing of all.

Mariah: Presents. Lots and lots of presents.

Tessa: Um…love?

Mariah: Love!

Tessa: Mm.

Mariah: Yes.

Tessa: Yeah.

Mariah: Lots and lots of love. That’s better.

Tessa: And not just from us. Our kid will have a big, happy family to celebrate the holiday with.

Mariah: I want that more than anything.

Tessa: Me too.

Mariah: But for the time being, we have each other and this beautiful night together. The world is full of make or break moments.

[ Both laugh ]

Tessa: Good morning.

Mariah: Merry christmas.

Tessa: Merry christmas, my gorgeous wife.

Mariah: [ Inhales sharply ] Mnh, I do not feel very gorgeous right now. I feel like I got [Chuckling] Ran over by a reindeer.

Tessa: [ Sighs ]

Mariah: How is it that you look so good in the morning? Did you, like, get up first and do your hair or something?

Tessa: No, I am just glowing with the holiday spirit.

Mariah: Hmm. I’ll say.

Tessa: Should we order breakfast? Or should we get something from crimson lights?

Mariah: Um, let me see. Oh, uh, definitely crimson lights because we are running very, very late.

Tessa: Oh, okay.

[ Gasps ] Oh. Oh, it snowed! A white christmas. Oh, it’s so beautiful.

Mariah: I’m sure it is, but we really need to get going. We can’t leave sharon hanging.

Tessa: I just think it’s nice. I mean, we expected snow, and we got snow. I mean, I think it’s a good sign.

Mariah: Um, well, it’s supposed to be snowing on and off all day long, which is not a good sign. Uh, when you planned this surprise, did you think to pack, like, boots or warm clothes?

Tessa: Yes, I’m on top of it, and everything’s in the car.

Mariah: Okay, good, ’cause we are gonna need to stay warm through all these deliveries. Uh, would it be weird if we just wore our robes all day long?

Tessa: Yes. Leave the robes here. We got to get going. Sharon needs us.

Mariah: Okay. Time to be christmas elves.

Tessa: Well, technically, elves don’t work today. They work really hard up till today and then take the day off, so…

Mariah: Alright. Well, these elves are gonna be working overtime, so get! Go, go, go, go, go!

Mariah: Good morning!

Sharon: Good morning!

Mariah: Merry christmas.

Sharon: Merry christmas. Good morning. Isn’t the snow beautiful?

Tessa: Oh, it’s such a dream.

Noah: Well, it’s nice of you two to join us.

Mariah: Uh, well, I’m sorry we’re late, mr. Taskmaster, but it’s all my fault.

Noah: Oh, I know.

Mariah: Thanks. Wait, how could you possibly know it’s my fault?

Noah: ‘Cause it always is.

Mariah: Okay, well, we walked here from the hotel, and because of all the fresh snow, we just had to throw a few snowballs at each other.

Noah: That’s why you’re late? Seriously?

Mariah: That, and we overslept.

Tessa: Yeah.

Mariah: But we’re here now, so let’s, uh, get to work after a warm beverage.

Noah: Ooh, you guys probably need a couple of triple espressos after all that champagne, right?

Tessa: Oh, no. We are very sharp.

Mariah: I was a little groggy, but no more than usual.

Noah: It’s christmas miracle.

Mariah: [ Laughs ]

Sharon: Okay, we have got to get to work. We have tons of presents and food to deliver. And I’m a little worried about the driving conditions because it — it’s gonna snow some more.

Mariah: Well, it doesn’t look like there’s that much to deliver.

Noah: Oh, this is just the stuff I couldn’t fit in the van. Everything else is already packed up.

Tessa: You did that all by yourself?

Noah: I sure did, while you two were out frolicking, making snow angels.

Mariah: Hey, I didn’t say anything about snow angels. How did you know that?

Sharon: Okay, we have about 100 more boxes in the back to pack up, and then we can start delivering.

Mariah: Okay.

Noah: I’ll make you two a deal. I do all the deliveries, you finish packaging the boxes?

Tessa: Deal.

Noah: Alright.

Mariah: Let’s get to work.

Noah: Let’s do it.

Mariah: Alright. Go, team! Okay, that’s everything from the back.

Noah: Everything’s loaded for my second trip. I just need this last bag, and I’m out of here.

Sharon: Noah, be careful out there, okay? The roads are really a mess.

Noah: I will, mom. I’ll see you guys at the house.

Mariah: See ya.

Sharon: Well, thank you both so much for your help. I can’t believe we got through that many boxes so quickly.

Tessa: Yeah, good job, everybody.

Mariah: Go, team.

Sharon: Alright, all we have to do now is clean up, and we’re out of here.

Tessa: Okay, sharon, what do we need to bring to your house?

Sharon: Nothing. Nothing. I have everything. It’s gonna be a smaller celebration this year, but very meaningful. Oh. Hello.

Sonya: I’m sorry. The sign says closed, but I saw you all in here.

Sharon: No, that’s alright. Come on in. Are you alright?

Sonya: I need a tow, and my phone’s dead. Can you help me?

Tessa: Oh, of course. Yeah, I have my phone. I’ll call.

Sharon: What happened to your car?

Sonya: I hit a patch of ice and skidded into a pole. Remember in driver’s ed when they told us that you’re supposed to turn in the direction of the skid?

Mariah: Yeah.

Sonya: Well, I didn’t until it was too late. I just sat there with steam coming out of the radiator, thinking, “oh, right, I should have turned into the skid.”

Sharon: Are you sure you’re alright?

Sonya: No, I’m fine. My car’s not. I would like to sit down, though.

Sharon: Of course. Take a seat.

Mariah: Here, right there.

Sonya: Thank you. I can’t tell you how much i appreciate this.

[ Breathing heavily ] Ohh. Who says you have to spend more on skincare

Sonya: [ Exhales heavily ]

Mariah: Here you go.

Sonya: Thanks.

Mariah: So, are you okay? Did you hit your head? Is your neck in pain at all? Did you hit your belly on the steering wheel?

Sonya: No, it really wasn’t that bad.

Tessa: I’m having trouble getting a tow service to come up here. The snow really messed up the road, so all the trucks are busy, but I will try again later.

Mariah: Or, you know, we can always call an ambulance. Or your ob-gyn.

Sonya: I’m fine. Really.

Sharon: Hey, you guys. Let our guest take a breath. She’s been through something very traumatic. Just give her some space. Hi. I’m sharon. I’m the owner here.

Sonya: My name’s sonya. I’m not hurt.

[ Voice breaking ] It’s just that, um, it all, like, happened so fast.

Mariah: Um, would you like something to eat?

Sonya: Something light would be nice. A muffin?

Sharon: Coming right up.

Sonya: Thanks.

Mariah: You know, when I was pregnant, I would have asked for five muffins.

Sonya: I was trying to be polite.

[ Laughs ]

Tessa: So, where were you going? Is there someone we can call?

Sonya: I wasn’t going anywhere. I was just driving.

Mariah: On christmas? Don’t you have a family that you need to be with?

Sonya: I do. I was driving away from my family.

Tessa: Ah.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

Tessa: We know what that’s like.

Sonya: I was at my parents’ place. We don’t agree on much, but lately we don’t agree on anything.

[ Voice breaking ] Not even on christmas. So I just — I just had to get out of there.

Tessa: Well, we’re sorry that you had to go through that. But you’re in the right place. We’re glad to have your company.

Sharon: Alright. Here you go. Here’s one muffin. And let me know if there’s anything else I can get for you.

Sonya: Thank you so much. Ooh. You guys must have plans.

Mariah: Oh, plans change. I mean, you didn’t plan to slide into a pole, right? I’m mariah, by the way. I’m sharon’s daughter.

Tessa: Oh, and, um, I’m —

Sonya: Tessa. You’re tessa porter. I thought I recognized you, but I didn’t know why. But your song is playing right now.

Sharon: Yeah, that’s my playlist. This is my favorite song, too.

Tessa: Thank you.

Sonya: I’m a big fan. And not just of your music, but your whole story. It’s so inspirational, and you’ve come so far. That’s all I want — to get a chance to show the world what i can do. When I envisioned my future, being a mom at 22 wasn’t part of the plan. But [Chuckles] Like mariah said, plans change.

Tessa: Yeah. Uh, they do. So, you’re alone?

Sonya: The baby’s father isn’t in the picture. I’m supposed to finish college in the spring and go to grad school, but I don’t know how that’s going to happen. My parents think I can handle it with their support. Even though we haven’t been getting along, they have promised to help take care of their grandchild. But I don’t know if I can be the mom this baby deserves. Especially when you think about all the people out there who can’t wait to be parents.

Tessa: Well, it’s a really big decision, but I’m sure that you will make the right decision for you and your baby.

Mariah: It’s your story to write, nobody else’S.

Sonya: I appreciate you saying that. Thank you for the food and everything, but I need one more thing.

Sharon: What’s that?

Sonya: The bathroom. Which way?

[ Laughter ]

Sharon: It’s right out there and then to the right.

Sonya: Thanks.

[ Exhales sharply ]

Mariah: [ Sighs ]

Sharon: Wow. Poor thing. All alone and on a day like this.

Tessa: I’m just glad that we can be there for her.

Mariah: It’s almost like her showing up here is some sort of christmas miracle.

Sonya: I’m sorry, sharon. I think I might need a little more help after all. I think my water just broke.

Sharon: [ Gasps ] We really had our hands full

“The young and the restless”

will continue. With directv I can get live tvand on demand together:

Sonya: Ohh.

Mariah: Her water broke, and she’s now experiencing contractions, so she is definitely in labor. So, if you could please just send an ambulance as soon as possible. Okay.

Sharon: Remember to breathe through the contractions, alright?

Sonya: Yeah.

Mariah: That is really good advice. Um, so the emts are having a really difficult time sending anybody out to us. The roads are a disaster. There’s accidents all over town.

Tessa: Okay. Well, when will they come?

Mariah: I don’t know. They don’t know.

Sharon: Okay. Well, the good news is a woman’s first baby takes a little while to arrive. The labor will last a lot longer.

Sonya: That’s good news?

Sharon: Well, you want the ambulance to arrive before the baby, right?

Sonya: Yeah.

Sharon: Okay. Can you walk?

Sonya: I think so.

Sharon: Alright, why don’t we walk around a little bit? It’ll be good for you. Keeps your muscles loose. We can walk and talk.

Sonya: Okay.

Sharon: Okay.

Sonya: Oh, I’m glad one of us knows what she’s doing.

Sharon: Look, I realize this seems overwhelming, and contractions are no joke, but i promise you can do this.

Tessa: Are you okay?

Mariah: I’m fine.

Tessa: You’re thinking about when you went into labor with dominic, aren’t you?

Mariah: I was so scared. And being there alone with this pain shooting through my entire body, I-I was terrified that i wasn’t gonna make it to the hospital and that I was gonna have to do this all alone in this tiny little room. And I just… I can still feel it.

[ Sniffles ]

Tessa: But it worked out. You and bowie came home safe. And then their parents changed his name.

Mariah: [ Laughs ]

Tessa: But you are with your wife, your mother, and a young woman who is scared and in pain. She needs us to help her through what is probably one of the scariest moments of her life. Let’s help her.

Mariah: You’re absolutely right. I need to let sonya know that she’s not alone…

Tessa: Mm-hmm.

Mariah: …And that she came to the right place.

Sonya: [ Breathing heavily ]

Mariah: Look, I know that this is not what you expected — a coffeehouse instead of a maternity ward. I was in a similar position when I went into labor, but my friends got me through it, and that is exactly — oh, here — what tessa and I are gonna do for you because we’re friends now. You’re friends with tessa porter. How cool is that?

Sonya: So, you have a child?

Mariah: Uh, no. I was a, uh — I was a surrogate for people who are very near and dear to me.

Sonya: Was it hard to give up the child?

Mariah: The baby wasn’t mine. He belonged with his parents. But we, uh — we see him all the time. We’re his favorite aunts.

Sonya: So, you don’t want any kids of your own?

Mariah: Uh, actually, I would very much like to start a family.

Sonya: When?

Mariah: As soon as possible.

Sonya: [ Groans ]

Mariah: But we — we should not be talking about us right now.

Sonya: Oh, my god!

Tessa: Yeah. I mean, how’s your lower back?

Sonya: Oh, my god, it hurts. Everything hurts.

[ Breathing heavily ] Ohh. Oh, my god!

Mariah: Okay, okay. Just, uh — just breathe now, okay? Just breathe…

Sonya: Oh, my god, I don’t think I can stand anymore!

Tessa: Okay, here you go. Here you go.

Sharon: The contractions are coming on faster, aren’t they? I’ve been keeping track of the time.

Sonya: Yeah.

Sharon: Alright, tessa, there’s some blankets in the back office. Would you get them, please? We’re gonna have to make sonya as comfortable as possible. I think this baby might be coming sooner than we thought.

Sonya: Wait, you think it’s coming now?

Mariah: Um…either way, you’re gonna be fine, and the emts should be here any minute.

Sonya: What if they’re not? What do we do?

Sharon: Well, you know, i might have another option. Let me make a call.

Sonya: [ Breathing heavily ]

Mariah: Okay. Hey, sonya.

Sonya: Ohh. Ohh.

Mariah: Sonya, here.

Sharon: Oh, hey, elena. I’m so glad you answered. Look, we really need help.

Mariah: Okay, sonya, only positive thoughts from here on out, okay? It’s the only thing that matters for you and your baby’s welfare.

Sonya: Okay. Okay.

Mariah: We’ve got you, okay?

Sonya: I trust you. Ohh. You’re gonna get through this,

Sonya: [ Groaning ]

Sharon: Alright, just keep breathing. You’re doing great.

Sonya: [ Moans ]

Sharon: Look, I know it hurts. You’re gonna get through this, okay?

Tessa: Yes, I am so impressed. If I was you, I’d be screaming in pain.

Sonya: [ Screams ] Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow!

Tessa: Yep. Just like that. You are doing so good.

Mariah: Okay, keep breathing. It’s all about the breathing.

Sonya: Stop telling me to breathe! I’m breathing!

[ Sobs ]

[ Moans ]

Sharon: Oh. Elena, thank god you got here.

Elena: Yeah, it was a rough trip, but I wasn’t gonna leave you alone.

Sharon: Okay. Thank you. Sonya, this is dr. Elena dawson.

Elena: Hi, sonya. It’s nice to meet you.

Sonya: Hi.

Elena: How many weeks are you?

Sonya: 37.

Elena: Okay, and your contractions are close?

Sonya: Super close. Mnh!

[ Gasps, breathes heavily ]

Elena: Okay. We are gonna be delivering a christmas baby. I just want you to breathe.

Sonya: Okay.

Mariah: She’s very good at breathing.

Elena: Okay. And I don’t need you to push yet, okay?

Sonya: Whatever you say, doctor.

Tessa: You are in very good hands.

Sonya: Ohh.

Elena: Just slow breathing for me.

Sonya: Ohh.

Elena: Great.

Sonya: Mnh.

Elena: You got this.

Sonya: It’s really hard not to push.

Elena: It’s okay. We’re not gonna push.

Sonya: Ow!

Elena: Good. It’s okay. It’s okay. Big, deep breath in. You’re doing great.

Tessa: It’s okay if you…

Mariah: One last breathe, one last breathe.

Elena: Okay. It’s time to start pushing.

Sonya: [ Exhales sharply ]

Elena: Okay.

Sonya: I need to pray first.

Elena: Of course.

Sharon: We’re all praying with you.

Sonya: [ Breathing deeply ] Okay.

Mariah: Okay. Okay.

Sonya: [ Groaning ]

Mariah: You got this. You’re doing so great, sonya.

Tessa: We’re gonna be here for you. We’re gonna be here for you and your baby, okay?

Sonya: [ Crying ]

[ Groaning ]

Tessa: This is it.

Sonya: I don’t know if I can.

Tessa: No, this is it.

Mariah: We are so proud of you. You’re doing amazing. Just keep going.

Elena: One more push. I can see the head.

Sonya: [ Groaning ]

Elena: Good, sonya.

Tessa: Okay, come on, girl. You can do this.

Mariah: You’re doing it, okay? You’re doing it!

Sonya: [ Breathing heavily ]

Tessa: Just one more.

Sonya: [ Groaning ]

Mariah: There you go, there you go, there you go!

Sonya: Ahhhhh!

Mariah: Oh, yes!

Sonya: [ Breathing heavily ]

[ Baby crying ]

[ Laughing ] Ohh. It’s a girl?

Sharon: It’s a perfect little girl.

Sonya: Ohh. [ Chuckles ]

[ Exhaling heavily ]

Mariah: Oh, my god.

Tessa: Oh, they’re here. They’re here.

[ Laughter ] They’re here.

Sonya: [ Exhales heavily ]

We’re taking you and your baby on a short trip to memorial, but it looks like you were in very good hands here.

Sonya: I was. It was a miracle.

Elena: Let me update you on a few things.

Mariah: Yeah.

Sharon: Aww. She’s beautiful.

Sonya: Thank you so much. I don’t know what I would have done without you, sharon.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Sharon: Oh, it’s noah. I have to take this. Excuse me.

Sonya: Plans change.

[ Laughter ]

Tessa: Yeah, they certainly do.

Sonya: An accident may have brought me here, but I didn’t come here by accident. I was supposed to meet you. The universe brought us together for a reason.

Mariah: You know, we have been thinking the same exact thing. We are so happy that we met you.

Sonya: I’m so grateful for everything you shared with me. The two of you have such a strong, beautiful relationship. You’re gonna make such incredible mothers.

[ Sighs ] I hope I can be a good mother, too. You were right. This is my story, and I’m writing it.

[ Chuckles ] I was so scared today, but then I found a strength I didn’t know I had inside me. Holding my daughter like this… I feel like I can do anything.

[ Exhales heavily ]

[ Sniffles ]

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

Tessa: Bye.

Sonya: Bye.

Tessa: [ Groans lightly ] Hey.

Mariah: I just had the most intense dream.

Tessa: Me too.


Tessa: Wow. We haven’t had a psychic connection like that since you were kidnapped.

Mariah: Now we just had the same dream.

Tessa: I think it shows how close we are.

Mariah: It felt so realistic. It felt like it was actually happening until the second i opened my eyes.

Tessa: Yeah. I’ve never woken up so exhausted. That dream was so emotionally draining.

Mariah: I mean, meeting this young woman and then letting myself believe that somehow it meant that our baby was coming soon, only to have this imaginary young mother choose to keep her child. I mean… what if it’s an omen?

Tessa: An omen of what?

Mariah: Then we’re not gonna get what we want.

Tessa: [ Sighs ] I know why you felt that way. I was disheartened, too. But I don’t think we can ascribe too much to an emotional dream. It was a manifestation of our hopes and fears. On thanksgiving, the birth mother we wanted chose to go in another direction and let her cousin adopt the baby. And now our collective anxious subconscious is just telling us not to get our hopes up too high.

Mariah: And you don’t think it’s a sign?

Tessa: Okay, well, if you want to think about it that way, think about all the positive aspects of the dream.

Mariah: Like what?

Tessa: [ Chuckles ] We met a birth mother who we connected with.

[ Voice breaking ] We felt the joy of bringing a new life into the world. I think it affirms that we’re gonna be kick-ass moms.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ] Well, I guess it’s like sharon said yesterday. Every experience we have is just bringing us that much closer to finding our own child.

Tessa: I mean, I think it’s true. And if anything, the dream means that, even when we face setbacks… you have to keep the faith. I mean, isn’t that worth remembering, especially today?

Mariah: You’re right. And I love you.

Tessa: I love you, too.

[ Sniffles ]

[ Inhales sharply ]

Noah: Okay. Actually, I think it’s probably gonna be two trips, so I will take the gifts right now and then come back for the meals when they’re ready.

Sharon: Sounds good.

[ Gasps ]

Mariah: Good morning! Hi.

Noah: Merry christmas.

Mariah: Merry christmas.

Sharon: Merry christmas!

Noah: Oh, it’s nice of you two to join us.

Mariah: Sorry we’re late.

Noah: Too much free champagne last night?

Tessa: Maybe a little.

[ Laughter ]

Sharon: Oh, no. You two didn’t sleep well?

Mariah: Uh, something like that. But it’s nothing a strong cup of coffee can’t fix.

Sharon: Okay, well, I just made a pot.

Noah: Yeah. I’ll grab you guys some mugs.

Mariah: Okay.

Sharon: Thanks, honey. Um, is everything okay?

Mariah: Yeah. Why wouldn’t it be?

Sharon: That’s not an answer.

Mariah: [ Chuckling ] Um… we’re fine. Just a little groggy.

Sharon: Okay. You just don’t seem like your usual effervescent selves.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

[ Cellphones ping ] Oh.

Tessa: Um, it’s from delphine.

Noah: Who’s that?

Tessa: It’s the woman we’re supposed to meet after new year’S.

Mariah: The potential birth mother.

Sharon: What does she say?

Mariah: She sent, uh, a sonogram. Yeah.

Tessa: It’s a girl.

Sharon: Ooh. Wow. She’s beautiful.

Mariah: And she also included a message. “We can’t wait to meet you.”

Sharon: [ Gasps ]

Mariah: [ Laughing, crying ]

Tessa: [ Laughing, crying ]
