No, I realize it's hard

to place a new healthcare aide

around the holidays,

but anything you have...

[doorbell rings]

Really, anything at all.

I appreciate it.

[knocking on door]


Thank you so much.


Scout, homework.

After this chapter.

- Hi.

- Hi.

- Willa Fairchild?

- Yes?

- Registered mail.

- Oh. Thank you.

Buddy, I'm serious.

Everyday Sam's

best friend's dog

was kidnapped,

and it's not the first one

in the neighborhood.

What in the world?

What's a Notice to Bene...?

Beneficiaries and Claimants.

What does that mean?

Mr. Conrad left me

something in his will.

After he died?

What did he leave?

A hundred thousand dollars?


Who is this person?

Her name is Willa Fairchild.

She was Dad's nurse

during his last few months.

And he left her

a hundred grand, and left us...

Uh, "something much more

valuable than money."



"Dear Willa,

"I can't thank you enough

for everything you did for me.

"You and Scout are very lucky

to have each other.

"You made the right decision

to put your family first.

"You gave your son

a second chance.

Now it's your turn."

This has to be

a mistake.


Leaving us when we were kids

wasn't enough, huh?

Never calling,

never reaching out,

and now this?

Look, I get it, okay?

He didn't call

when he was sick.

He didn't reach out.

He didn't want us to know.

Or maybe she kept him

from reaching out.

The nurse!

He drew up

a brand-new will,

days before he died,

and he left the entire estate

to her?

Come on, you hear

about these caregivers taking

advantage of their patients

all the time.

Finn, I...

What other explanation

could there be?

That we were never in the will,

and we were never going to be.

Look, Finn,

there's something else

you need to know.

It appears that our father

arranged for this nurse

to have

an all-expense paid vacation

to a bed and breakfast

called Bramble House in Oregon,

two weeks over Christmas.



No. No.

[starts car]

"Don't wait till it's too late

"like I did

"to figure out

what you want in life.

"Be Scout's example.

Promise me."

What does that mean?

It means

that he's an incredibly

thoughtful man.

What if...

what if I'm not

all the way better yet?

Okay, so the doctors said

you can do anything you want

now, right?

So we will just take it

at your speed.


maybe Mr. Conrad is right.

We both got a second chance,

and we shouldn't waste it.

Maybe this could be

the Christmas we deserve

after everything

we've been through

the last two years.

What do you say?


Yeah, so,

I, uh, I talked to the lawyer,

and she said that if we want

to contest the will,

that we need to prove

that the nurse used

"undue influence or deception"

to get the money,

and we need to do it

before the end of the year,

December 31st.

How would we do that?

Well, I'm having her draw up

an injunction

to stop the will

from getting paid out,

and I'm going

to go confront this nurse

and tell her to back off,

or we will take her to court,

and we will win.

Do you really want to do that?

He's still our father.

I mean,

don't we have to find out

if this woman

was taking advantage of him?

I can't rest

unless I look her in the eye

and find out the truth.

It's Christmas time

There's a thousand lights

and they're shining brightly

Everyday Sam found out

who kidnapped

the neighborhood dogs,

but now,

the kidnapper has him!

How exciting!

Hey, buddy,

I don't think

that you have looked up

since we left the airport.
