- Thanks a lot.

Watch your step.

- I'm sorry.

- I'll give you a hand.

Don't worry.

That's all right. Thanks.

Just put it on top, if you would.


- Here.

- Thanks a lot.

- Good.

- Thank you. Thanks a lot.

It's OK.

Got it?

Wait a minute! Excuse me!

I think you have my book.


That's it. Thanks.

- Merry Christmas.

- Merry Christmas.

I'm awake, I'm awake...

Wake up! Wake up!

All right, all right!

Guys, come on. It's early.

I'm awake, I'm awake, I'm awake.

Come on, come on.

You guys... Come on!

Out! 20 more minutes.

And don't open the presents yet!

Don't go downstairs!

Merry Christmas.

Don't you want to open your present?

I wanna know whose idea

it was to have children.

- I know. Yours.

- It was yours.

God. I must have been out of my mind.

Let's get this show on the road.

Oh, my God.

- No good?

- My God, no. This is beautiful.

- You like it?

- Yeah, this is really beautiful.

You can exchange it.

It's quite a surprise. I...

I wasn't expecting

anything so romantic.

Thank you.

- Merry Christmas. You like it?

- Yes.

And this is for you.

- Careful, guys.

- It'll be broken by dinner.

Try to keep

all the pieces together, OK?

So I don't have to look for them.

I just have to put this one on.

Is that the right one?

- What's this?

- Open it up.

- No, you're not right!

- What did I just tell you?

Take the decals and put them

in one spot. Put 'em in one spot.

I am putting them in one spot.

I don't get it.

- What's this?

- It's lovely. We can exchange it.


I didn't get this,

I got a book on gardening.


let's clean up this mess!

Gardens For All Seasons.

What is that?

Oh, no.

Well, it's a very nice book.

I'm sorry!

- It is.

- Honey, it's a mistake.

There was a man in the store... God.
