1 Come on, people.
Can we get a move on or we're going to be caroling at Easter.
Deck the halls with boughs of holly Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la Corey, that was pretty good.
'Tis the season to be jolly Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la la l Excuse me.
I work alone.
I think somebody's going to be very happy this year, Raven.
Wait a minute, did you just have a vision? I hope you didn't see what we got you.
Of course I didn't.
I mean, no, I didn't.
Can we get a move on? Yeah, um, let me just get my coat.
I think I'm coming down with something.
I got it-- I got the cold.
You better go on without me.
Are you okay? Do you need me to stay with you? Oh, Mama, no.
Go enjoy be merry.
Good-bye.
Okay, um, I'm sorry you're not feeling well.
Yeah, you stay warm.
We'll be back in about an hour.
Fa-la-la-la-la Or sooner.
Are you sure you don't want to go caroling with us? Yeah, it's always been the Baxter quartet.
Doesn't feel right going without you.
Fa-la-la-la And Corey wants your solo.
Better not chance it.
Go without me.
Okay.
I know, I know-- I shouldn't have opened my present before Christmas but look at this.
Rae, everyone does that.
It's just I can't believe you wore it to school.
I couldn't help it.
Girl, the outfit demanded I wear it.
Listen listen, I'll have it back under the tree and my parents will never know 'cause isn't it beautiful? It's jewelry-- I'm a guy, which adds up to I don't care.
Hey, Rae, can I try it on? I don't know Come on, Rae.
Please, please.
Okay, okay, okay.
We better get to Petracelli's class.
Here he comes.
That guy creeps me out.
It's like it's like he's looking right through you.
I know what you mean.
I call him the mid-terminator.
But never to his face.
Uh, Ms.
Peterson, pick up your trash.
Mr.
Thomas, pick up you pants.
All right, all right, all right, one last thing-- I'm sure you'll be disappointed to know that I won't be here tomorrow.
But, Ms.
Simmons will be substituting.
You know, the one who plays movies 'cause she doesn't care about your education.
Yay! Now, remember even though I'm gone tomorrow, I will be watching.
All right, girl, time's up.
My necklace misses me.
All right.
Ooh, Rae, it's stuck.
What? Girl, Mama's coming.
Let me try.
Let me see.
Eddie Eddie, be careful.
I'm trying to be gentle Eddie, you're hurting! Oh, my necklace! Don't worry, I see it.
Where? Right there.
See where the guy's mowing the law Oh, and there and there and all over there.
Yep, that's me.
It's a purple garnet necklace with a silver chain.
Are you sure you don't have it in stock? Well, check again and again and again.
They're checking.
You do? Oh, that is so terrific.
Okay, they have it but they're only going to hold it till 2:00 tomorrow.
2:00? That's no good.
We'll still be in school.
Hello I think it's time y'all let a man handle this.
Look, ma'am, I'm sorry, but 2:00 is unacceptable.
Now I want the necklace wrapped, purple bow, ready to go by 4:00 sharp.
Excellent.
We've got till 1:00.
Forget it.
By the time we get out of school it'll be gone.
Yeah, you know, Rae you're just going to have to tell your parents the truth.
You know, tell them that you opened your present early then wore it to school and then fed it to the lawn mower.
You know, just leave me out of that last part.
Thanks, Chelsea, but I think I actually have a good idea.
See, we are going to ditch Petracelli's class tomorrow and go to the mall.
We? Ms.
Simmons is substituting.
She never takes attendance.
It's perfect.
Very true-- all except for "we.
" Exactly.
We are not cutting class.
Right.
Okay, you know what? I'm not ditching by myself.
So I guess that means I just have to tell my parents, right? It'll probably ruin their Christmas.
But I screwed up.
So, uh I might as well get it over with.
You know, this is our fault, too.
I mean, I just had to wear the necklace, and you know, you threw it out the window.
Yeah, but can't we just be really, really sorry? Eddie, we have to help her.
Usually you guys are a lot faster.
I found this hanging up in my closet.
I will not wear this stupid suit for another stupid picture with Santa.
I'm too old.
Come on, we do this every year and your mother loves it.
But between the two of us how about ten bucks to get you to go along with the program? Ten bucks? Hmm what's the magic word? Cheese.
Oh, Good.
I see you found your Christmas outfit.
That photo means a lot to your dad.
Really? I don't know-- it's so dorky.
Well, um Would ten dollars make it any less dorky? I guess I can do it for Father.
20 bucks in 20 seconds.
Ka-chingle bells, ka-chingle bells Ka-chingle all the way.
Hey, guys.
Hey, Rae.
want to help me put the roof on the gingerbread house? Um, sorry, Dad you're going to have to do it without me this year.
Real busy-- lots of studying.
Oh, well, okay.
But who's going to help me do it and then sneak the gumdrops off the roof when I'm not looking? Corey.
Corey? All right, people tomorrow after third period, we will position ourselves in the hallway here, here and here.
Soldier, timeline.
We'll exit school at 12:05, hit the mall at 12:22 and have exactly 23 minutes to get in, buy the necklace and get out, sir! Excellent work.
Eddie, transportation report.
We walking to the mall.
That's a nice band, Chelsea.
Thanks.
I just got it.
What other colors do they have? Can we not do this now? Okay, disperse! Just want to let y'all know, um there's no one here.
Chelsea you're the lookout.
Eddie, cover me.
We've got 22 minutes to pull this off, people.
Go.
Did you get the necklace? Yeah, with still enough time to get back to school.
Oh, look, a shoe sale.
No way! The plan was to get in and get out.
We got in, so let's get out.
Okay, fine.
Oh, forget the shoe sale.
Let's take a picture with Santa.
It'll be a souvenir of the day we cut.
Merry Christmas, little girl.
Ho, ho, ho.
A merry Christmas.
Oh, ho, ho, ho.
Merry Christmas! Did you hear that? Yeah.
Why does it sound so familiar? Petracelli.
Petracelli.
Petracelli.
Merry Christmas! Thank you, Santa.
Thank you.
Merry Christmas.
Right back at you, Mr.
Petracelli.
Real smooth.
How do you know my name? Oh, it's a really funny story, but we can't tell you now 'cause we got to run! Out of the way! Mall rats! O holy night The stars are brightly shining It is the night of our dear Savior's Man, I just don't get it.
Why is Petracelli dressed like Santa? Well, you guys, you know, it is Christmas and I really think Christmas brings out the best in all of us-- even, dare I say, Mr.
Petracelli.
Freeze, mall rats! Ho, ho, hold it! You are going to love it.
The perfect gift for the perfect size eight.
Size six.
Your sister's going to love it.
What are you doing? Girl, you're not trying to sneak a peak at your presents, are you? Me? And spoil the wonderful surprise that is Christmas morning? Shame on you.
This thing is too tight.
Now I know why those people yodel.
I think it's adorable.
Well, at least your mother didn't make you wear the matching stockings.
I almost forgot.
I left them in the kitchen.
Thanks, honey.
Okay How about five bucks? Sure, if it's five bucks a leg.
So, you ready to go to the mall with us? Mall the mall.
Um, you know, Mom, I think I'm going to skip it.
I'm kind of malled out.
We do this every year.
We have hot chocolate.
We go shopping.
I pick out something I like.
You tell your father to get it for me.
He gets the wrong thing.
I have to return it.
I pout a little then I get to spend more than he ever would have.
It's tradition.
Yeah, Mom, but, you know, it's been a long day.
Right.
Okay.
Ho, ho, ho, what have we here? And yet, Mom you can never have too much mall time, truly so I'll be right there.
That's my girl! All right.
Chelsea, Eddie, it's Raven.
You know that picture we took at the mall with Santa? Oh, yeah.
I wonder how that turned out.
Girl, it turned out fine 'cause I just saw it in the hands of Petracelli! This is taking forever.
Hey, now we're moving.
Hey, not so fast.
I'm a walking wedgie.
Hey, look who's here.
It's my friends Eddie and Chelsea.
What a complete and total surprise.
Yes, isn't this a coincidence, Chelsea? I'll say, Eddie.
So, Mom, Dad, little brother we're going to go shop now, in the mall which is here.
Okay, bye.
At least she was with us for a little while.
Perfect.
The picture's right between my parents and Mr.
Petracelli.
No, wait.
Petracelli's going on a break.
You better go get those pictures.
How's she going to sneak by her parents? Who needs to sneak when you can walk on by? No wonder it takes eight reindeer to pull this dude.
All right.
I'm going in.
Ho, ho, ho! Merry Christmas! Hold on, children.
You waited a year.
You can wait five more minutes.
Santa's not back yet.
Ho, ho, ho! Santa's just going to look at the pictures to see who's been naughty or nice.
Ooh, these children have definitely been naughty.
All right, everybody.
Ho, ho, ho! Yo, yo, what's the deal? We've been waiting a long time.
Keep your paws off the Claus, man.
Ho, ho, ho.
You've been a good child! Merry Christmas! Are you happy now? Ho, ho, ho.
What have we here? Are you some kind of impostor? Security, there's a phony Santa running around this mall.
He looks like me Ms.
Baxter, this was taken this afternoon, wasn't it? Okay.
I cut school, but I had a good reason.
See, my parents got me this beautiful necklace for Christmas, and I opened the present early I wore it to school and it got trashed.
So I cut school to replace it so I wouldn't disappoint them.
I was just thinking about them.
Totally unselfish.
How did that sound? Long.
Okay, you know what? Go ahead and do whatever you're going to do.
All right, I will.
I'm going to let you off the hook.
What? Why? I ruined everybody's Christmas.
How? They don't know what you did.
Yes, but because I had to open my present early I didn't go caroling with my parents which I love and I didn't get to, you know make the gingerbread house with my dad which I've been doing since I was little and I didn't even get to put the angel on top of the Christmas tree with my mom.
And I didn't ruin anybody's Christmas but my own.
Hmm, kind of miss all that stuff, don't you? Yeah.
Why'd I have to open my present? Being psychic can throw you sometimes, huh? Mr.
Petracelli, how did you know I was psychic? 'Cause I'm not Mr.
Petracelli.
That's Mr.
Petracelli.
Wait a minute.
If he's Mr.
Petracelli then who are you? Raven, you have the gift of seeing the future.
Now I'm going to give you the gift of changing the past.
Are you sure you don't want to go caroling with us? Yeah, it's always been the Baxter Quartet.
Doesn't feel right going without you.
Fa-la-la-la! And Corey wants your solo.
You know what? I think I'm feeling a lot better.
I'll be right out.
The Baxter Quartet is back.
Silent night, holy night All is calm All is bright 'Round yon virgin, mother and child Holy infant, so tender and mild Sleep in heavenly peace Sleep in heavenly peace.
Happy holidays from my family to yours.
