A Christmas Miracle for Daisy (2021) Movie Script

Okay, okay, easy, guys.
Don't Saint-Nick Santa's throne.
[CHUCKLES] Good one.
- Oh, good morning, Whitney.
- Good morning, Whitney.
Good morning.
What's going on here?
We're going to have Santa
in the lobby this season.
Oh. Well, what happened
to Blue Christmas Elvis?
Already booked somewhere else.
Hey, we're talking Santa here.
A Christmas superhero.
That is true. That is true.
The kids are going
to love Santa.
- Not as much as Dad will.
Well, I think, we both know
that Reed's just a big kid.
I'll take that as a compliment.
All right. Bye, guys.
- Bye.
- Good seeing you.
Oh, an angel bearing coffee
and muffins?
The Christmas season has begun.
- Yes, it has.
- Mmm.
Oh, they sent over the photos
from the upcoming estate sale.
How are they?
- Let me see.
- Look, check this out.
Oh! Yeah, pretty.
- Ooh.
- Right?
That would work well
at the Millers in Bozeman.
Okay. I will email Paige Miller
a picture of that.
- What?
- Already did.
I mean, why do you even need me?
You could run this whole place
on your own.
In a heartbeat. Or so I'll
continue to make you believe.
All right. Show me more.
[DAISY] Will there be
Christmas trees in Montana?
Oh, there will be a forest
of them.
Does Santa know
where Montana is?
Santa knows where everywhere is.
You told him we're moving,
I didn't need to.
Of course you didn't.
He's Santa.
We're on an adventure, Daddy!
Yes, we are.
Just thinking about a nice
Terra-cotta floor for the Millers' kitchen?
Oh, that would look so nice
with the backsplash.
Yeah, I think so too.
- Andi.
- Hey, Eric.
- How you doing?
- Good.
- Hey, Whitney.
- Hey.
Uh, you closing up
for the evening?
- Yeah.
- Yup.
Right, obviously.
Uh, something we can
help you with, Eric?
Uh, yeah. Andi.
That new rom-com Sunshine and
Laughter is opening in Bozeman next week...
- Eric...
- I know you like the book.
Yeah, she does.
She... you love the book.
Yes. I uh, do like the book
and um, I want to see the movie.
But Eric, remember?
"I'm not interested
in dating you."
Why ruin a great friendship?
Well, I mean, it doesn't have
to be a... a "date" date.
Yeah, but it would be.
Yeah, I guess, it kind
of would be.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
But thank you for asking.
Okay, uh...
Well, have a great evening.
- Goodnight.
- Bye.
Well, gotta give it to him,
certainly is persistent.
- A for effort for sure.
- Mm.
Nice try.
I don't understand why you
won't go out with him.
We grew up together.
It'd be like dating my brother.
Really cute brother.
Oh. Well, why don't you go
out with him?
Because he's not my type.
And what exactly is your type?
Oh, you know.
No, I don't know.
I have no idea, Whitney.
You are all over the map.
Let's see.
You dated the football coach.
- He was nice.
- Cattle rancher.
He was very nice, and he
has cows, and I like cows.
The rodeo clown.
What? He was funny.
There wasn't a type
in the bunch.
The only thing they
had in common
was you broke up with them.
You know what? No. They
have something else in common.
It wasn't going to work
with any of them.
You're avoiding the question.
I don't see you in
a long-term relationship.
- Still avoiding.
- You know what? [CLEARS THROAT]
Andi, here's the thing.
- You like your life?
- Yes.
- You do, right?
- Yeah.
'Kay. We have our own business,
- we are independent women.
- With constantly ticking biological clocks.
Why are you ruining it?
- For love?
- Ugh.
It's overrated.
- This is so cool.
- You like it?
So much.
Will we really be moved in
by Christmas?
Oh yeah, I promise.
Guess what?
You and I are going to plan
this awesome holiday party
for all our new neighbors.
How does that sound?
I might need a new dress.
Yeah, you might.
Where's my room?
It's right back there
down the hall.
Thanks, Daddy.
Oh, this'll do just fine.
It's uncannily similar
to the one at home.
Kris Kringles.
Reed Phillip.
- This is my daughter, Marybeth.
- Hi.
How can we help you,
Mr. Kringle?
Kringles. It's a common
mistake and call me Kris.
Are you the manager
of this fine establishment?
Well, in theory, yeah.
But she does most
of the heavy lifting.
Only when you get that
pesky twinge in your back.
Oh, I hate it when that happens.
So Mr. and Ms. Phillips, you
have installed a Santa station.
And Santa is here.
Well, that was fast.
We called the agency in Bozeman
less than an hour ago.
When would you like me to start?
Don't you want to discuss terms?
Oh, well, whatever you have
in mind will be fine.
Though obviously I can only
be here till December 23rd,
then I need to get back home,
get ready for my main job.
Right. [LAUGHS]
Let's go to the office
and fill out the forms.
- Keep?
- Keep.
- Okay.
- Ukulele.
- Then we a have a telescope.
- Ooh, telescope.
[BOTH] Keep.
Yeah, I like that.
Okay, what's next?
And then we have a, um...
What do you suppose it is?
This is... it's clear,
very obvious.
This is a uh, first edition...
- ...whatchamacallit.
I didn't know whatchamacallits
came in first editions.
You don't know everything,
do you?
Huh. Keep.
[BOTH] Nah.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Hey.
I have a possible
job opportunity for you.
- Hmm.
- Okay, spill it.
Well, you know, the Carter house
out on Country Road?
Uh, yeah. My dream house.
I mean, in the life where I'm
ridiculously rich. [LAUGHS]
Well, somebody bought it and he
hired me to bring it up to snuff
and asked if I knew any good
local interior decorators.
[GASPS] And as a matter
of fact you do.
Yes, you do.
Okay, so what's he want done?
As far as I can tell he wants
the whole place furnished.
[GASPS] What?
By Christmas.
By Christmas?
That's challenging.
But we love a good challenge,
right? Yeah, yeah.
So, what's the budget?
Money is not an object.
Less challenging.
Well, I'm going to be up
by his house tomorrow morning.
Can you make it?
- Absolutely we can.
- Yes.
Yeah, thank you.
- Of course.
- Thanks.
- Ah, they're here.
Ah, Mr. Sheenan
and Miss Sheenan.
Welcome to the Royal.
Thank you, but it's uh,
Connor and Daisy.
Your suite is ready and waiting.
Why is there a
Santa village in here?
He's going to be holding court
in the afternoon
so girls and boys can meet him.
Santa's going to be here?
That's right.
Until December 23rd.
And then he has to go
and do his real job.
Let me show you up.
Thank you.
Oh, this is beautiful.
Oh yeah, this is nice.
It's our best suite.
Listen, call downstairs
if you need anything.
We will.
- Enjoy.
- Good night.
Well, what do you think?
I love this town, Daddy.
We're going to have the best
Christmas ever here.
Yes, we are.
Yes, we are.
Um, there's a lot to be done
but uh,
I think you can imagine
around it.
Already on it.
All right. Well he's down
the hall. I'll go get him.
Okay, thanks.
I'm not lying when I said
this was my dream house.
Growing up it was the place
we all wanted to live.
Yeah. Well, I see why.
I mean, this place
has so much potential.
Look at the beams.
This could be our Architectural
Digest moment.
And here he is, guys.
Andi Buchanan, Whitney Alder,
meet Connor Sheenan.
- Connor?
- Whitney.
You two know each other.
- What are you doing here?
- What are you doing here?
I live here.
No, no, no, this is my house.
No, you don't.
I don't live in this house.
I live in Marietta.
Since when?
Since whenever I wanted to.
What do you mean "since when?"
You never told me that
you moved here.
Well, the last time I checked,
I mean, you never wanted
to speak to me again.
Maybe it's not the best time
to talk about business.
So, you're still designing.
Yeah. Yeah, I'm still designing.
That's what I do.
I'm a designer.
We can come back tomorrow.
Are you still conquering
the universe?
Uh, no. No, actually I'm not.
Although it was
pretty much conquered
by the time that I sold my
company and retired.
You... you retired?
That's, that's very funny.
Well, it sounds like you two
really know each other.
Uh. Yeah, we do.
We do.
We were actually engaged
to be married.
Oh, come on.
Let's not get crazy.
I mean, we were... we were
engaged to be engaged.
And then someone, uh,
broke it off.
You know what?
Thank you for your time,
Mr. Sheenan.
We will just,
we'll see ourselves out.
Okay, hold on.
You guys don't have to leave.
I'm just trying to avoid
a hostile work environment.
Okay, hold on.
Hold on now.
We are all professionals here,
Yep. Mm-hmm, mm-hmm.
And when we worked together
it went well, right?
That's true. 100% correct.
Okay, so this past
Water under the bridge.
Ancient history.
100%, yeah.
And to be honest, I... I love
working with Whitney.
She designed my first offices
and frankly
she's the best designer
I've ever worked with, so.
You think I'm the best?
Yeah, I do, yeah.
Well, thank you.
So, do you want to see
our portfolio?
Definitely, yeah.
Okay. That was awkward.
For you?
Think about what
it was like for me.
Wait, are you really sure
you can work with him?
I'm not working with him,
you're working with him.
No, I'm just cheering you on
from the sidelines.
Wait. What happened to
"Oh, there's no tension when we
work together, ancient history?"
Okay. Look, look, Andi.
We want this job, right?
This is our Architectural
Digest moment.
This is the house. Right?
- Right.
- Yeah. You can do this.
- Yeah. I can do this.
- Yeah.
- Okay. I can do this.
- Okay, good.
About that "engaged to be
engaged" thing?
- Ugh.
- And now he's living here?
You have some explaining
to do there, Whit.
Don't call me Whit.
- Come on, Whit. Whitty.
- No, no, no. Stop.
[ANDI] Okay. Tell me everything.
So, when we were dating
we took a road trip
and we stopped here in Marietta,
and we both fell in love with it
and thought it would be
a great place to live.
And you were talking
about marriage?
He was talking about marriage.
Right. You weren't interested.
I mean, you just have to
understand I was young, right?
I was so focused on my career
and I wasn't ready
to get married, no way.
And besides I mean Connor
was already married to his work.
And you weren't?
Yeah, but not in the same way.
I mean, he had his eyes set on
becoming master of the universe.
That's what he called it.
I don't know, I... I didn't want
to be Mrs. Connor Sheenan.
Yeah. You wanted to make
your own mark.
You know, I wanted to succeed
in my own right.
Yeah. No I...
I get that.
But maybe that's all
in the past now?
I mean, he sold his business.
No, he'll buy another one.
People like Connor don't change.
Mm. Bless you.
Oh, excuse me.
Oh, great.
So, you're a concierge
and a babysitter?
Concierge, that's a big word.
It's from Eloise.
I'm a huge Eloise fan.
- Really?
- Mm-hmm.
That's a book for girls.
Nope. Boys like it too.
And uh, I'm not
the concierge here.
I'll have you know that
I'm the owner-manager.
And babysitter.
Well, we're a full service
hotel, Miss Sheenan.
Hi, Santa.
Hello there.
I'm Daisy, but you know that.
Good to see you, Daisy.
Are you staying here?
I am.
So am I!
How marvelous!
We're hotel mates.
Can I ask you a question?
Of course.
I've always wondered.
Since Christmas Eve
is such a big night for you,
you must get so tired.
It can be a bit wearying.
Why do you do this?
Seems to me you'd want to spend
the time before Christmas
resting up.
That's a very good question.
Well, the truth is,
visiting with boys and girls,
and hearing
what's on their mind,
what they're dreaming about
and wishing for
it totally pumps me up
for the big night.
Makes sense.
The Phillips said that Santa
was going to be here.
Do you want to go say hello?
Oh, I wish I could, but remember
I have to go get those samples.
- Yep.
- Yeah.
But tell him I say hi.
I'll see you back at the store.
- Okay. All right, bye.
- Okay, bye.
Hi, Santa.
Welcome to Marietta.
How very kind of you.
Have you met my friend, Daisy?
I have not. Hi, Daisy.
My name's Whitney.
Daisy's a guest here
at the hotel.
Just like me.
[DAISY] Only until Christmas.
Then I'm moving
into my new house.
Ooh, your new house?
That's exciting.
Well, technically not new.
It's an old ranch house.
Well, not a ranch house like in
California where I used to live.
More like a ranch mansion.
Daddy said a cattle baron
used to own it.
Would that happen to be the
Carter house out on County Road?
That's the one.
It's really big.
And your father bought that?
There he is.
Daddy, come meet Santa
and my new friend, Whitney.
Hi, Carter.
Uh, so I see you two have met.
Sweetie, this is Whitney.
She and Andi will be decorating
our new house.
You mean like find
all the furniture
and figure out the wallpaper
and stuff like that?
Uh yes.
Stuff exactly like that.
Then can we talk sometime?
I have some ideas for my room.
Okay yeah, that would be
very helpful.
Could I do that Daddy?
Talk with Whitney?
Well, you might want to talk
with my partner, Andi.
Because she's going to be
handling most of the project so...
Of course.
You know, we should probably
let Whitney go.
She's probably got places to be.
Yeah, I have to get back
to the store
but uh, it was very nice
to meet you, Daisy.
Nice to meet you.
And you too, Santa.
Bye, Connor.
- Hey.
- Hey.
So, you ready for a bombshell?
Uh, not particularly.
Connor's a dad.
Yeah. He has a little girl.
That's nice.
Who looks to be about
seven or eight
so apparently right
after we broke up
he just moved right on
with his life.
Where's the mother?
Nowhere to be seen.
Which means...
He's a single dad, huh.
More power to him.
No. No.
It means that I was right
not to marry him.
I'm not following you.
Yeah, because I mean
he's divorced or separated.
You know, she couldn't
compete with his career
so I was right.
Oh, you don't look so good.
Yeah, I don't feel so good.
Oh, Andi, you're burning up.
Why were you acting
so weird today?
With Whitney.
I was not acting weird.
Yes, you were.
And fidgety.
Okay uh well, Whitney
and I are old friends
and she uh, used to
work with me.
Before you were born actually.
Did you guys have a big fight
or something?
Because you weren't acting
like old friends.
You were acting weird.
Okay uh, well...
We weren't just old friends.
We uh, we dated.
You mean like
"boyfriend-girlfriend" dated?
So, that's why you
were acting so funny.
You still like her?
You know, it...
that was years ago, okay?
I like her as a... a friend.
Or I like her as someone
that I'll be working with again.
It's complicated.
Grown-ups always say that
when it isn't complicated.
Hey. What's the diagnosis?
I'll live but I'm going to have
to lay low for a while.
Ugh. All right.
Well, let's get you home to bed.
Hey. You know all that one-on-one
time with Connor Sheenan?
- Mm-hmm.
- Until I get better, it's going to have to be you.
- What?
Okay, Whitney. You can do this.
You're a professional.
- Hey, Daisy.
- I've got some stuff to show you!
You do? Okay, well, I have
some stuff to show you too.
I'll be in my room,
come see me when you're done
talking to Daddy.
Okay, I will.
Oh, that girl's energy.
Uh, yeah, she's got a lot of it.
I thought I was meeting
with Andi.
Oh, yeah, well, she's just
feeling a bit under the weather
so, um, stuck with me.
I'm sorry, to hear that.
No, that came out wrong.
I'm sorry to hear that she's
sick, not that I'm stuck with...
I got it. [CHUCKLES]
Okay. Let's go inside.
- So, I have ideas about each one of the rooms.
- Yep.
And I can get some of
the items in our store.
Others we can source locally.
But basically I just need
to know what you like
and what you don't like,
all right?
Pretty simple.
Uh, will we be waiting
on your wife to join us?
Daisy's mom.
Oh uh, Daisy's my
cousin's daughter.
Technically she's my daughter
now but biologically speaking...
Your cousin?
Car accident when Daisy
was 18-months-old.
Wow, I'm uh, I'm sorry.
No, no, you, you didn't know.
But Daisy was a baby,
and my cousin made me promise
that if something happened
that I would take care of Daisy.
And something did.
- That poor girl.
- I know.
But thankfully she was so young
when it happened
she didn't realize
what was happening
when her parents passed
and now I'm pretty much
the only thing she knows
as a dad or a parent.
So, no wife?
Just me and Daisy.
And I was all geared up to tease
you about a failed marriage.
Oh, I'm so sorry
to disappoint you.
So uh, when did you move here?
Um, shortly after I...
After you dumped me?
Put a doomed relationship
out of its misery.
You know, because
one of us had to.
And by the way you're welcome.
Yeah, well the business
wasn't going to grow itself.
That was just job one.
Oh, my job was never more
important to me
than yours was to you, Whit.
You've got to stop calling
me that, come on.
Do you remember
the mayor's ball?
- Oh, here we go.
- My newcomer of the year award.
You gotta be honest, my chair
was pretty empty.
You know what, though?
I had a client dinner.
- I told you that.
- You had a client dinner?
- Yes!
- Okay, yeah. I rest my case.
You know what?
Can we just focus?
- Come on, Whit.
- Do not call me that!
Hey, guys.
Oh, uh, sorry to interrupt.
I have the cost breakdown
for the building supplies.
I need to go sign those.
Yeah. Yeah, I know.
I'll go check on Daisy.
- Hi.
- What do you think?
Oh, I like it.
It's river beige.
It's nice.
I'm imagining the whole room
around this.
Maybe that's backwards.
No, I don't think so.
Actually, I think
it's really smart.
Could I show you some more
of my ideas?
I'd love to see 'em.
I think a four-poster bed
would be really great in here.
Oh, yeah. I agree.
And you know what?
I know where we can find
that exact bed.
- Wow, awesome!
- Yeah.
Wishes folder?
Hmm, I'm intrigued.
What else is in there?
Oh, you know,
daydreaming kind of stuff.
- Like what?
- Like this.
Oh, you want a horse?
Nope. I want to be a jockey.
That would be so cool.
Mm-hmm. What else?
And this is Mount Everest.
I'm going to climb it someday.
I bet you will.
Well, after you can tear yourself
away from your awesome boat.
Yeah. A boat could be... fun.
Which is why you have it
in your wishes folder, right?
Actually, it's not the boat.
It's the mom.
Yeah. My mom,
she's not here anymore.
Or my dad.
Well, my first dad.
I'm sorry.
But Connor's my daddy now,
and he could get married
someday, right?
Yeah, absolutely.
That's not a crazy thing
to wish for, is it?
No, I think it's a great thing
to wish for.
As long as it's, you know,
it's the right person.
Like someone who
makes him act fidgety,
like he swallowed a butterfly?
Well, I think, there's
a little bit more to love
than just butterflies.
Yeah, probably.
But that could be
a good start, right?
Yeah. I suppose so. Yeah.
So, maybe my wish
will come true.
It just might.
Hey. How you feeling?
Not worse.
That's good, right?
Chicken soup and cough drops.
Oh, dinner and dessert.
So, how'd it go?
Uh, good. Yeah.
I mean, we went through
each one of the rooms
and he likes some
of our choices.
He had different ideas
on others.
But um, all in all, it was okay.
We're going to take
a road trip tomorrow and um...
we're just going to see what
some of the other vendors
in the county have to offer.
Uh, Whitney?
That's not at all what I meant.
I meant, "How did it go?"
If you're talking about
was there any blood drawn?
No, I was nice.
Well, did you find out
about the wife?
No wife.
Daisy is the daughter
of his late cousin.
She lost her mom?
That's so sad.
Yeah, I know.
But Connor adopted her, so.
Wow. Well, that's a lot
to take on.
- Good for him.
- Yeah.
- It's interesting, though.
- What's interesting?
Well, he's single.
Well, he's not married.
And out of all the places he
could've moved, he moved here.
I explained that.
A place you both
fell in love with.
A lifetime ago.
And despite everything that's
happened between you two
he's still willing
to work with you.
Okay, where are you going
with this?
Love moves in mysterious ways.
You gotta stop with the whole
romance novel thing.
And they all have happy endings.
Eat your soup.
It's getting cold.
Well, thank you guys again
for doing this for us.
- I appreciate it.
- You're welcome.
Oh, he's a first-rate
babysitter, Daddy.
But I got extra backup.
I worked my way through
college babysitting.
Why do they call it
that anyways?
I mean, I'm a kid, not a baby.
- That's a good point.
Hey, listen.
If she gets in your hair, don't
hesitate to put her to work.
Are you planning on getting
in our hair, Daisy?
Not sure what that means,
but I don't think so.
Well, we should be back
by dinner.
- Have fun, Daddy.
- Thank you, sweetheart.
You too, Whitney.
- Bye, Daisy.
- Bye.
Thank you, guys.
Okay, bye.
- Drive safe.
- Thank you.
- Hi, Eric.
- Hi, Whitney.
Thanks for calling me back.
Listen, I have a favor to ask.
[WHITNEY] Sven is sixth
generation Montana.
This whole area was a mecca
for Scandinavians.
Clearly undaunted
by the uh, weather.
[LAUGHS] Yeah.
So, he has a lot of connections
through his family
and through the community,
so, he gets first dibs on
all the estate sales.
But here's the deal.
He's very old school.
So, no internet presence,
no cell phone,
I mean, if you want
to see his stuff,
you gotta come to him.
Old school. I like it.
This coming from a man
who's got to have the newest,
hottest gadget as soon
as it hits the market?
Boys like their toys, you know.
Yeah, well I bet you got
a lot of them.
I did.
Now, I'm all about downsizing.
I'd hardly call your house
a downsize.
Well, you didn't see my other
one, did you?
So, how often do you guys plan
on visiting Marietta?
Oh, no, we're uh,
we're here to stay.
Until the boredom
scares you away.
Are you bored?
No, but I run a business.
It sounds like you're planning
on being a man of leisure.
I know, doesn't that sound good?
Let's see. Gosh, there's
so many things in here.
- Oh! Stop that!
Oh, oh. East wing hallway.
What do you think?
Yeah. I think it's perfect.
- Yeah?
- Yep.
Sven, put it on the list,
Yeah, it's good.
Sven doesn't talk much, does he?
Well, that's Sven.
Ooh, there it is.
I don't know.
I'm not much of a brass bed guy.
No. No, it's not for you.
It's for Daisy.
She wants one like this.
Add it to the list, Sven.
No way.
That is crazy.
What? DVD? Nobody watches
DVDs anymore.
No, look what it is.
- Is that...
- Yeah.
This is the exact
production that we went to
on our first date.
Oh, I love this.
Yeah. That was a good date.
You know what, I'm surprised that
you were able to get tickets to this.
It was sold out forever.
- You're surprised that I got tickets to that?
- Yeah.
It's pretty much the whole point
of being master of the universe,
is getting tickets to sold out
stuff like that.
Well, maybe I should
rephrase that.
I'm surprised you wanted to go.
Well, yeah.
I would've gone anywhere
if it meant I got to go
on a date with you.
Hey, I would like to get this
for Daisy for her stocking.
What do you think?
- Yeah. Good idea.
- Yeah? Okay.
Sven, put it on the list.
- Hi there.
- Hello.
You know Whitney, right?
Oh, everybody in Marietta
knows Whitney.
She seems really nice.
She is.
Does she have like, a boyfriend?
Not that I know of.
Why, you planning on playing
a matchmaker?
What's a matchmaker?
It's someone who puts
two people together.
Together like
Is it hard to learn
to be a matchmaker?
I don't know.
I've never tried it.
A smart little girl like you?
Shouldn't be that hard.
That sounds like a really
good choice.
- Thank you.
- Merry Christmas.
Well, that was fruitful.
Yeah. What you and Andi got
and what we just bought,
we are well on our way.
I would say so.
- Hey.
- Yeah?
- Want to grab some lunch?
- Yeah. Yeah, let's do that.
There is this cute little diner
about 20 minutes down the road.
- Sold.
- Okay.
- Eric. Hey.
- Hey, Andi.
Uh, Whitney said you
weren't feeling well.
Oh, yeah.
I've been better.
Well, I got you some lunch.
It's a tuna melt from the diner.
You like those, right?
My favorite.
Some red cabbage slaw
and curly fries.
That is my dream lunch.
She knows me so well.
Oh, actually, she just said
get Andi some lunch.
I figured out the rest.
Oh. Uh, wow.
Thank you.
Oh, eat it while it's warm,
And get some rest
and feel better.
- Thank you.
- Of course.
I'll talk to you later.
- Bye.
- Bye.
So, uh, what do you do
in Marietta
when you're not working?
You mean for fun?
[LAUGHS] I knew it.
You're already bored.
I am not bored.
This is about you, not me.
Mm, okay. All right.
For fun?
- Well, I'm part of a book club.
- Okay.
I also teach a Zumba class
three times a week at
the rec center for retirees.
I'm joining that.
- For old retirees.
- Oh, okay.
And I have to tell you
I love it.
Some of their stories
are fascinating.
Any uh, cowboy poets?
You know, I guess, they all are
in their own right. Yeah.
Actually, I've been thinking of
trying my hand at
cowboy poetry myself.
- You have?
- Mm-hmm.
Huh. Okay, so you know, how
to ride a horse and lasso,
and buck a bronco?
All that.
No. I actually don't know how
to do any of that stuff.
But it's on my bucket list,
Also something that you
may not know about me
is I am an avid line dancer.
- You?
- Mm-hmm.
So, you're down there doing
the old Texas Two Step, huh?
That's not really a line dance,
but I do know how to do
the Cupid Shuffle and
the Cotton-Eyed Joe and...
- Oh.
- All of 'em, yeah.
Well, you dance with anyone
in particular?
That is um, subtle.
Well? Are you?
Uh, well not that it's any
of your business,
but no, I'm not.
That's too bad.
Too bad for, not too bad for me.
No, it's too bad
for the opposite sex.
'Cause believe it or not
you were actually a pretty
great girlfriend.
Are you being sarcastic?
I can't tell.
I know it's hard to comprehend,
but you were actually
pretty good.
Uh-huh. How so?
Okay. Well, you're easy
to be around,
you're fun, you're funny,
kind of smart.
You know what? I would have to
agree with all of that actually.
Oh, you're clearly modest too.
- Really modest.
That's one of
the highlights for sure.
But you do... let's not forget,
you do have your faults.
Oh here... here it goes.
You know, sometimes you're
a little unreliable and uh,
just a tad bit self-absorbed.
- Self-absorbed?
- Just a tad.
I'm not self-absorbed!
Okay, okay, you're right.
All in all
you were a pretty
good girlfriend.
I am going to let that
last little bit slide.
But... enough about me,
how about you?
Did you leave behind a
sweetheart in California?
I actually have not dated
since I've become a dad.
Why not?
There's a lot of single parents
that go on dates.
No, you're right.
It's just that, uh...
I made a choice that
if I had any spare time
that I would spend it
with Daisy,
and if she needed me I'd...
I'd be there.
Actually, this is the closest
thing to a date
that I've been on in years.
Oh, that's uh...
It's pathetic, I know.
No, I was actually just going
to say that was really...
Room for dessert?
Chef made figgy pudding.
It's vanilla custard with
whipped cream and chopped nuts.
That sounds really good but I
think I'm going to have to pass.
Me too. We'll actually
have the bill.
We're going to hit the road.
Oh, well, you won't
be doing that.
What? Why not?
You two lovebirds...
- Oh no, no, no.
- We're just friends.
Just friends.
You have been so
caught up talking
you haven't noticed all
the snow we've been getting.
- Oh.
- Oh.
Wow. That is a lot of snow.
Uh-huh. Even for Montana
in December.
Highway's snowed under
a mile down the road
and the engine on
the plow went out.
So we're stranded.
Unless they can fix that plow.
Probably for the night.
Okay. Well...
On second thought,
how about that figgy pudding?
Yeah, better make it two.
Well, I better call Daisy.
[WHITNEY] Thank goodness
this B&B is still open.
Well, hey there.
Welcome to the Dewdrop Inn.
- What can I do ya for?
- Oh!
[BOTH] We're stranded.
Oh right. That darn plow.
I've been telling the mayor for
years now we need a new one.
Does she listen?
Do you have any available
rooms or...?
As a matter of fact we do.
On the account of the snow
we've had some cancellations.
Okay, good.
Can we take two?
Sure can.
Did you have any
luggage with you?
Uh, no. No, we don't.
Oh. Well, seeing as you arrived
I'll see if I can rustle up
some unopened
toothbrushes for you.
- Thank you.
- Great.
Here you go.
Now, it gets a little chilly
at night.
I'll see if I can drop by
some sweaters for you
- to keep you warm.
- That's very kind of you.
- Thank you.
- Yeah.
Oh, and once you get settled,
check out the common room.
And we have complimentary
hot cider.
Mmm. All right then,
thank you so much.
- Thank you.
- You're most welcome.
Enjoy. Make yourselves at home.
- Okay.
- Thanks.
It's so cold.
It sticks to my teeth.
That's why they call it
the snow mask.
Come on, let's go inside.
[DAISY] It's magical.
[REED] That's a good
word for it.
Your dad called.
He and Whitney are going to be
stuck overnight because of the weather.
- Are they okay?
- They're fine,
but you're stuck hanging
with us for the evening.
You can help me thread
popcorn and cranberries
for the Christmas tree.
- Fun.
Hi, Santa.
Evening, Daisy.
Mr. Phillip, Ms. Phillip.
We're stringing popcorn
and cranberries, wanna help?
Oh, that sounds like fun.
Thanks, I'd love to.
Don't laugh.
Okay, turn that thing off.
It's so bad.
I think yours is worse, though.
Uh, I know.
It was very nice of them
to loan us these,
but I don't know, I think they
might be a little colorblind.
Uh, let's be charitable
and say that.
Meet the Misses, folks.
Hi, I'm Lucy.
- Hi.
- Hi, Lucy.
Oh! You're in luck.
Found some new toothbrushes.
Yeah. And some flannel PJs.
Oh, thank you.
[LUCY] I'm so glad they fit.
You can keep 'em, if you like.
- No! Couldn't do that.
- Oh, no, no.
No, no. They're leftovers from
last Christmas's ugly sweater party.
Meant to throw 'em out.
Most ridiculous things
we've ever seen.
- [GUS] But warm, I'll bet.
- Uh, yeah.
Well, anyway,
you have a good night.
- Goodnight.
- Goodnight.
- Goodnight.
- Goodnight.
We of little faith.
Oh, yeah.
So... Yeah.
Guess we'll just sit here and
drink cider and talk about old times.
Or, or we could play
a game of chess.
There's also Jenga.
Or we could...
Yeah, seriously.
You don't recall?
Oh, I remember, yeah.
So, you remember that every
time we played I beat you?
Well, maybe I got better.
Did you?
There's only one way
to find out.
How much money do you have?
How's that?
You're on.
That is you being better?
I said there's only one way
to find out.
Pony up. Come on.
Thank you.
Does it ever get boring
winning all the time?
You know, you would think so,
but no, no, it doesn't.
You do know that Gin Rummy is
supposed to be a game of chance.
Now, that's true.
That is true.
So, we can play again
if you'd like.
No, no. I am tapped out.
Your credit's good with me, sir.
Oh, yeah.
You are in the wrong profession.
You need to be down in Vegas
being a card shark.
Well, then I wouldn't be here
with you decorating your house.
No, you wouldn't.
I'm feeling very guilty right
now for taking all your candy,
so, uh, I'm going to turn it in
for the night, I think.
It's late.
Get some rest.
Yeah, you too.
You know, we just had a lot
of fun today, right?
Yeah, we did.
We did. We did.
Oh, good morning.
Wow, look at this spread.
Thank you.
How did you sleep?
Oh, like a baby.
- Up hungry every two hours?
No, I slept right through.
Oh, glad to hear, glad to hear.
Uh, help yourself
to some breakfast.
I highly recommend the oatmeal.
Lucy's kind of famous for it.
So I hear.
I'll have some of that.
All right.
Oh, and the plow is back
in commission
so you can hit the road again.
Okay, great.
Thank you.
Uh, by the way have you seen
Connor this morning?
Oh, yeah.
He's been up for a while.
He's outside working
on a special project.
- Special project?
- Mm-hmm.
All right. Thank you.
You're welcome.
Mmm. This is good.
- Right?
- Mm-hmm.
- Enjoy.
- Bye.
Looks like somebody's
been busy all morning.
You know I haven't built
one of these since I was a kid.
I used to love this.
Wow, that's a nice one.
Yeah, but the problem is
I'm horrible at decorating
these things.
Yeah, hmm.
I wish there was a designer
around to help us.
I know.
Where could we find
a designer right now?
What are you up to?
Where are you going?
I haven't seen our guests.
Did they check out already?
Not yet.
[LUCY] Oh, my word.
Just take it.
You gotta be faster than that.
[LUCY] Oh, to be young
and in love.
Ah, young and in love
is all right, I suppose.
But not nearly as sweet
as old and in love.
Who are you calling old?
I'm not calling anyone old.
I'm just making an observation.
- Good!
- Perfecto.
- It looks good, right?
- It looks good, yes.
[CONNOR] Hey, Daisy. So, we're
on our way back right now.
We should be back in Marietta
around mid-afternoon.
I want to hear everything
about your trip.
And what if I don't remember
everything about the trip?
[DAISY] Then Whitney better.
I got you covered, Daisy.
I'm going to hang up now
because it's not safe to drive
and talk on the phone.
Bye, Whitney, love you, Daddy.
Love you too, sweetheart.
Aww. That girl.
She has this astounding capacity
for enjoying life.
I just love her energy.
- It's pretty much boundless.
- Mm-hmm.
She makes you happy,
doesn't she?
Yeah, she does.
That little girl turned my life
completely upside down
for the good.
And honestly, things that used
to be important to me
just aren't anymore.
- Like the company?
- Exactly like the company.
You know, that's crazy.
I never thought I would
hear you say that.
Yeah, so you've made very clear.
Well, you've changed too.
I've changed?
How have I changed?
You're not nearly as intense.
- What do you mean "intense?"
- Really?
You're just talking
a mile a minute,
pacing back and forth, you know,
walkin'. "I'm walkin' here!"
You know, just intense.
I wasn't intense!
- Was I intense?
Oh, I was intense, wasn't I?
Oh, I'm so sorry.
Ugh. Ugh.
I guess I needed a chill pill
to be honest with you.
And Marietta was that for me.
Kind of like Daisy changed you.
Anyway, I'm sorry
for all that intensity.
- Let's make a deal.
- Hm?
No more sorrys.
Deal. Yeah.
And to be honest,
I don't think either of us
have really changed.
I just think we grew up.
We wish you
A Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
Sorry guys. It's an emergency.
Santa, I need
to tell you something.
My Christmas wish.
That's right.
You haven't shared that
with me yet.
Can I tell you now?
Of course.
What a wonderful wish.
I'll see what I can do.
Thanks Santa.
Yup. Lunch and dinner yesterday.
Breakfast, lunch,
and dinner today.
The diner must love him.
I don't know.
That lasagna tasted homemade.
And the man can cook.
Okay look, I know I was sick
but asking him to be
my 24/7 meals on wheels?
Little bit overkill.
I only asked him
to bring you lunch yesterday.
The rest of it was all him.
- Really?
- Mm-hmm.
So, on top of him being
a master chef
he's thoughtful,
and kind, and generous.
And he didn't ask me out,
not even once.
You seem disappointed
about that.
No, no.
Anyway, I am feeling much better
and I am looking forward
to getting back to work.
How are things looking for the
Christmas party on the 23rd?
Uh, well, there's
still a lot to do
but I think with you on board,
you know, there's a good chance
we could make it happen.
Wait a second.
"A good chance"?
That is not the confident
Whitney Alder I know and love.
You know what?
You're right.
We're definitely going
to make it happen.
That's more like it.
If we're lucky.
Stop it!
Merry Christmas.
Santa, we need to talk to you.
We wanted you to know
that the kids and their parents
absolutely adore you, Kris.
Of course, they do.
He's Santa.
And we were wondering if,
well, if we could ask a favor.
Of course.
How may I be of service?
The night before
you have to leave,
we're having
a Christmas celebration
right in front of the hotel.
There's going to be booths,
games, and music.
And this awesome guy
who juggles elf dolls.
Oh, is that offensive?
Heavens no.
They'd be honored.
Well, we'd be honored
if you were our special guest.
It all ends with the lighting
of this fabulous Christmas tree.
Hoping you would pull
the switch.
Well, not a switch exactly.
This really fun snowman, and
when you push the top of his...
Oh, well you'll see.
This sounds like
a pretty important job.
I may need an assistant.
Do you think
you could help me out?
I most certainly could!
Ho, ho, ho.
- [ERIC] Almost there.
- [CONNOR] Yeah, wow.
Yeah. We got a couple hardwood
floor patch ups.
Last coat of paint
in your office.
And that plumbing
fixed in the kitchen.
I've coordinated with Andi
and Whitney,
so we can stay
out of each other's way.
We're going to have you ready
for that party.
You did it. Thank you.
- My pleasure.
- I appreciate it.
It's going to be quite
the party.
You know, I gotta say man.
I am... I'm impressed.
With what?
Well, that you and Whitney
can work so well together after,
you know.
Oh. Pfft.
Well, she's an awesome designer
and plus, I like her.
As in you're into her again?
I was never not into her.
She broke up with me, remember?
She just wasn't ready
to get married.
Well, the girl I'm interested in
isn't even ready
to go on a date.
But I keep asking.
Going on three years.
- Three?
- Three.
Oh. That is dedication.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
Well, maybe I'm a fool,
but I gotta say, she's the one.
Well, pretty romantic
for a general contractor.
Well, we're not as macho
as we look.
- I guess not.
- Yeah.
You know, though, Eric, I...
When I was going after an asset
or an acquisition,
trying to court them, and
they would resist my overtures,
I would just stop calling.
Stop emailing.
I would just total ghost.
And guess what?
More often than not,
they would start courting me.
Huh, wow.
I mean, no offense, that sounds
like kind of a high school move.
Oh, no, no, no,
it's a total high school move.
But... it works.
Hap, hap, happy new year
Okay, everybody, here we go.
Hap, hap, happy new year
Keep it going, everybody.
Hap, hap, happy new year
We wish you
A Merry Christmas
We wish you
A Merry Christmas
We wish you
A Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
Good tidings we bring
To you and your kin
We wish you
A Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
We all want
Some figgy pudding
We all want
Some figgy pudding
- We all want some Figgy pudding
So bring some out here
Good tidings we bring
To you and your kin
We wish you
A Merry Christmas
- And a Happy New Year
- Thanks, Sven!
We won't go
Until we get some
We won't go
Until we get some
We won't go
Until we get some
So bring some out here
Good tidings we bring
To you and your kin
We wish you
A Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year
Hap, hap, happy new year
Hap, hap, happy new year
Hap, hap, happy new year
That looks really good.
Oh, thank you.
What do we have here?
LA's Man of the Year Award.
I'm guessing
that's a bigger honor
than Marietta's Man of the Year.
There's two of those?
Oh, uh. They were actually
selling these in the lobby
the night we went to the ballet.
It was our first date.
Oh, so it's like
a collector's item?
No, I don't think so.
But your first date is.
Or we both just really like
bobble-head dolls.
Oh, right, yes of course.
Because you only have one
and so does he.
Or maybe it's just,
it was a really good ballet.
Okay. When are you going to stop
making moon eyes at the guy
and tell him you are
crazy about him?
What? I don't even know
what moon eyes are.
Moon eyes.
Moon eyes,
like, you know like...
I don't do that!
- Oh, yeah?
- No.
Let me get you a mirror.
Guys, the finished product
looks sensational.
- Thank you.
- We try.
Uh, the bakery is having a sale
on these yummy looking
Christmas cupcakes.
Give them.
Ooh, we could use
some yummy right now.
Uh, Whitney.
The one with the green frosting is
for you. It's got chocolate chips on it,
and you really like those,
don't ya?
Yeah, they're my favorite.
Thank you.
Well, that's it.
I have some paperwork
to take care of.
- Enjoy.
- Okay.
- Bye.
- Bye.
See ya.
Why didn't he get me
a special cupcake?
He knows what I like.
Well, maybe
they were out of them.
We haven't even had our
honeymoon and it's already over.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Daddy, Whitney!
These guys are going to be
in my class in January.
I invited them
to our Christmas party.
Aww, that's amazing.
Merry Christmas.
Excuse me. Daisy,
it's time to get ready.
Bye guys.
- There she goes.
- Bye.
All right, so have I officially
thanked you
for getting the house ready
for the party?
Only about a million,
trillion times.
Well, I'm going to have
to thank you
another million, trillion times.
You know what?
I'll take it though.
Because do you know
how many boxes
I had to go through
of your stuff?
I have an idea.
You have a lot of stuff.
I only sent half of it
to be honest.
Oh, and by the way,
I found your, um,
Nutcracker bobble-head doll.
- You found that?
- Yeah, I did.
Oh, man.
You must have thrown
yours away years ago.
I just, I couldn't do it.
Oh, why, did you use it
as a paperweight?
No, it just...
because it reminds me of one
of the best days I've ever had.
Well, I have to make
a small confession.
I have mine too.
For the very same reasons.
- What?
- Come here.
Where are...
where are we going?
Don't worry about it.
Where are we going?
I... I don't know if
I'm crazy but I just...
Yeah, I mean,
you're a little crazy.
No, I...
What are you getting at?
Life's about second chances,
That's what they say.
And, I mean, before we weren't,
we were great.
We were so good.
And we've both grown up.
- So...
- So...
Maybe we should...
Are you going to get that?
- No.
- Come on.
- You should get it.
No, I don't...
I, I should not get it. Really?
It's okay.
Hey, Freddy.
Merry Christmas.
Oh, you... you are?
What time?
No, I'll make you lunch.
Yep, yeah.
No. I'll send you the address.
I'll see you tomorrow.
Uh, old friend from LA.
He's actually passing by on
his way to a ski trip, so, um...
Welcome, everyone.
Happy Holidays!
We're so glad you could join us
on this special night.
And this really has been
a special Christmas season.
In no small part
thanks to a wonderful man,
our honored guest,
Kris Kringles.
Yeah, Santa!
Thank you all so much.
Truly I live the most
blessed life.
Christmas is about
sharing and caring,
and hoping and wishing.
That I have been tasked to play
a small part in all that,
well, it makes me
the luckiest man alive.
And this Christmas has been
especially special for me too,
because I'm able to share it
with all of you.
Now, I believe it's show time.
Miss Sheenan,
shall we do the honors?
On the count of three.
One, two...
Ho, ho, ho!
Isn't the tree awesome?
Yes. It's beautiful.
Well, thank you guys
for the lift.
Oh, by the way, I have to stop
by the house tomorrow.
Uh, one last finishing touch.
Okay, you've already done
enough. You know that.
Well, consider it
a housewarming gift.
Hey you.
I had a really good time today.
Me too.
All right then.
- Goodnight.
- Goodnight.
- Goodnight.
- Goodnight.
You ready?
Oh. Someone went shopping.
So which one do you like?
Well, red's my color, so...
Not for you, for me.
For Connor's party.
Oh, okay.
Well, the blue looks great
with your eyes.
Um, the red brings out
your rosy cheeks
and it's very holiday
and glittery and it's pretty.
And then, oh, then you can't go
wrong with a little black dress, so.
Right. So, no clear winner?
Not really.
Why does it matter?
Because it matters.
Are you trying
to impress somebody?
Wha...? No.
No, I just, you know.
I just, I just want
to look my best.
Well, if you just want
to look your best,
then I would go with the blue.
It's his favorite color.
I'll show you
where the stuff goes.
You found us.
Hey, GPS works
even in the middle of nowhere.
Well, I would hope so.
Good to see you, man.
It's good to see you, too.
It looks like our
lunch is catered.
Oh, no, we're actually having
a Christmas party here later.
You're welcome to stay,
Oh, I wish I could.
I have to get to the lodge
before dark.
Yeah, I'm afraid this is going
to be an eat and run, my friend.
Let's get you fed.
- Merry Christmas.
- Merry Christmas.
That was delicious.
You really did this yourself?
I can't take all the credit.
I had a lot of help from Daisy.
You're going to laugh,
we've been taking
online cooking classes.
You could've just hired a cook.
100% I could've.
But I moved here
to make life more simple
and plus it's... it's something
fun I get to do with Daisy.
- Yeah, I can appreciate that.
- Yeah.
Full disclosure, this isn't
entirely a social call.
Oh, okay. Seen this coming.
Look, Freddy, I love you
but whatever you're trying
to pitch me,
I'm just probably
not interested.
Just hear me out.
Okay, but I'll give you
the elevator pitch.
The elevator.
- No more than that. Let's go.
- All right.
[FREDDY] Someone with your
skillset and track record
in professional connections
should be doing more
than baking bread and throwing
down home Christmas parties.
So, it would really mean a lot
to a lot of people,
including me.
And we'd be thrilled
to have you on board.
I'm definitely interested, so.
[FREDDY] Why don't you come to LA
after the holidays and meet everybody?
Kick the tires a little.
Yeah, I think
I could make that happen.
[FREDDY] Oh, well I'll
send the private jet.
[CONNOR] Send the private...
Let's not get ahead of ourselves.
[FREDDY] All right, fair enough.
But hey, I really need
to hit the road.
[CONNOR] Fine, I'll let you go.
But let me walk you
to your car at least.
All right.
[FREDDY] Oh, I'm full.
[CONNOR] Yeah, I know, me too.
By the way, whoever decorated
this place did a fantastic job.
Oh! Oh!
[FREDDY] Hello.
There she is. The mastermind
behind all this.
Whitney Alder.
- That's me. Hi.
- Hello.
Whit, meet one of my old friends
and business colleagues,
Freddy Andrews.
Nice to meet you.
It's very impressive, Whitney.
You ever work in LA?
Not anymore, no.
That's too bad.
Well look, Merry Christmas
to you both
and we'll talk soon, Connor.
- Yes, we will.
- All right.
Drive safe.
Hi, I was just dropping off
the poinsettia.
Oh, it's beautiful.
We are going to have such
a good party here,
no small thanks to you.
Yeah, no, it's going to be
a great party.
I just wish that I could be here
to celebrate it with you,
but I... I can't.
What? Hold on, why not?
Uh, well, my sister, she
called me and she just wants me
to spend Christmas with her
and her family in Denver
so I'm going to go do that.
Why didn't you mention
any of this before?
Uh, yeah, it was just a spur
of the moment kind of thing.
Okay, can you not
just go tomorrow?
I can't.
I can't because it was
just really hard
to get those tickets booked,
and so I'm just going
to go tonight.
But, look, the party's
going to be amazing
and, um, maybe after the
holidays, you can tell me all about it.
Connor, give Daisy a hug
for me, okay?
Merry Christmas.
[ANDI] Are you sure?
It hasn't even been a month
and he's just dying to get back
to the rat race.
Wait, he said that?
You know,
I thought he had changed.
Ugh, I'm an idiot.
He's not changed.
Well, does it matter?
I mean, he is who he is and you
seem to really like that guy.
That's the problem.
Andi, I do like that guy.
I just can't believe it.
I mean, I can believe it.
I just can't believe it.
Love the doorbell.
Kris, hi. Please come in.
I can't stay long.
[DAISY] Santa!
Why are you still here?
You should be home
getting ready for tomorrow.
I'm on my way to
the airport right now.
I just stopped by
to give you this.
A little housewarming gift.
That is awesome.
It's egotistical of me, I know,
but I thought it would look nice
under your tree.
I hope you like bobble-heads.
I do.
And it will.
I'm going to put it on the tree
right now.
Oh, that's lovely.
Thanks, Santa.
You have a great Christmas,
don't get too tired,
and don't forget my wish.
I won't.
It's none of my business,
But is everything okay?
Oh, yeah. You know, it's just...
Yeah. I just thought things
were going well between us.
Well, it certainly seemed
that way to me.
Yeah, I just really thought
things were different this time.
We both grew and learned what
we want to do with our lives.
Oh, well.
Don't give up hope just yet.
Things aren't always
what they seem.
And Christmas is a time
of miracles after all.
You look fabulous.
Thank you.
I have to say,
blue was a good choice.
You're always right.
All right. Well, have fun.
I intend to.
Look, if you change your mind...
I know where you'll be.
- Okay.
- Okay.
Hey, Andi?
Will you do me a favor?
Will you tell Daisy
I said Merry Christmas?
Yeah. Of course I will.
- Okay.
- Okay.
- Bye.
- Bye.
What's that?
I don't know.
"Keep the faith and always
listen to your heart.
Merry Christmas, KK."
You guys made it.
Hey, we wouldn't have missed
this for the world.
It's always been
a beautiful home, Connor,
but you've made it dazzling.
Oh I... I can't take
the credit for this.
This is all Whitney and Andi.
You know, we'll be sorry not to
have you at the hotel anymore.
Well, thank you.
We had a great time.
- Oh, hey!
- Hi!
[DAISY] Andi!
Is it true Whitney's
not coming tonight?
I'm afraid so, sweetie.
But why?
She just... she can't.
But she wanted me to tell you
Merry Christmas.
That's nice, but boy,
I really wanted her to be here.
Oh, well.
She's missing an awesome party.
I'll tell her all
about it when I see her.
I'm so glad you came, Andi.
Oh, sweetie, thank you.
- Merry Christmas, Andi.
- Merry Christmas.
Oh, and by the way,
everyone loves what
you guys did with the house.
Um, I don't want to drag you
into things.
Oh, drag away.
Do you know what I did
to upset Whitney?
Sure. The job you're
considering in LA.
I don't know what
you're talking about.
She was here this afternoon.
Oh, she probably heard me
talking to Freddy.
I'm afraid so.
[SIGHS] Okay, listen. Enjoy the
party, have some champagne.
That's an excellent idea.
Merry Christmas.
Oh, hey, Merry Christmas.
Why are you ignoring me?
I'm not ignoring you.
Oh, come on.
Andi, I'm just trying
to show respect.
I know you don't like me
bothering you.
No, I...
I want you to bother me.
Well, then, you look
unbelievably beautiful tonight.
I do?
And that's saying a lot, because
I always think you look great.
Oh, that is first-rate
I know you like country music.
I love country music.
Well, Chris Stapleton
is playing in Bozeman...
I'm there.
Hey, uh, Whit.
Um, look.
So, when you were
at the house today
and you heard me and Freddy
talking, um...
Look, can we talk?
I think we should talk.
So, when you land in Denver...
How about now?
You're here.
Yeah, I'm here.
Look, I need to clarify
No, Connor, you don't need
to clarify anything.
Um, I know about LA
and I've been thinking
about it a lot.
In fact, it's the only thing
I've been thinking about,
and I want you to know that I...
I'm okay if you go to LA.
And I am okay if you want
to conquer the universe
or if you never want to retire.
None of that matters to me.
I just want to be with you
and I want to be with
Daisy and that's it.
And I know that now.
Why aren't you saying anything?
Whitney, I was never
going to LA.
Yeah. Freddy's on
the board of directors
for an NGO for an
orphanage in Nigeria.
It specializes in girls.
Yeah, and he thought
because, you know, Daisy,
that I'd be interested
in being on the board.
And, let's be honest, he knows
the type of checks I can write.
I got that so wrong, didn't I?
Yeah, you did.
Look, thank you for accepting
what you thought I wanted.
I'm not going anywhere.
I'm not leaving Marietta.
I'm not going back to LA.
I'm not leaving you.
Everything I said I meant.
I'm sorry. I...
Hey, hey, hey.
Did you forget already?
Oh, yeah. No more "I'm sorrys."
Okay, I take that back.
So, no more Denver?
Oh, yeah, well that...
I, I might've, um,
stretched the truth just...
- Just a little?
- A little bit, yes.
Because I want you here with me.
So then, uh, what are we going to
do? You think we've grown up or not?
I don't know, have we?
I think that feels
pretty grown up to me.
- Guess what?
- What?
There's, like, eight mistletoes
in that house.
Oh, I don't need mistletoe.
- No?
- No, do you?
Oh, maybe.
Let me get your coat.
I thought you said that Whitney
wasn't coming tonight.
You look beautiful.
It's a miracle.
Merry Christmas, Daisy.
Merry Christmas.
Get over here. [GRUNTS]
Thank you, Santa.
