Jason, Stephanie.

Inside voice and

walking feet, please.

Yes, Miss Bell.

This is great.

Popcorn on a string?

Looking for someone?


- I'm so happy you made it.

- Of course I made it.

Next time, use that

app I showed you...

then you'll see...

if I'm not with you...

I'm always on my way.

So how was the big holiday pageant?

Terrific, if you ignore the fact that two of

the shepherds were picking their noses...

and Mary twisted her

ankle on the dreidel.

- Oh. A Judeo-Christian mishap.

- Heh.

I'm so happy we're spending

Christmas together.

So are you ready for tonight?

The Ballantine Capital Holiday Party

is the social event of the season.

At least to the Ballantines.

I'm still debating on what to wear.

Well, I'm sure whatever you wear,

you will look beautiful.

And my mother will scrutinize your

dress and find it distasteful.

Oh. Sounds like fun. Heh.

It will be, as long

as we're together.

- Come on, I'll show you my classroom.

- Oh.

Good job today. Merry Christmas.

- Bye.

- Bye, everyone. Merry Christmas.

- Miss Bell?

- Oh, Mrs. Low. Wasn't Bobby just darling...?

- I can't find him. I've looked everywhere.

- I'm sure he's here.

Okay, why don't you

check the cubby room?

- I'll look in the classroom.

- Okay.

- I'm sure he's hiding under one of the desks.

- Oh, yeah.

Come on, in the car.

Honey? Heh, you know what?

I think I left my scarf by the manger.

- Will you run and get it?

- Scarf retrieval. Can do.

Thank you, sweetie.

I'll go check on Bobby.



Miss Bell?

Miss Bell, that's my dad.

He is? You are?

Oh. Oh.

Well, unfortunately, the faculty was informed

your visitation rights have been suspended.

- It's Christmas.

- Bobby, say goodbye to your dad...

- ... and then go find your mom.

- Okay. I love you, Dad.

- Bye, Bobby.

- Bye.

- Do you have a phone?

- Yeah.

You're lucky I'm in the

holiday mood, Mr. Low.

You see, if I call this into the police,

you would be in big trouble.

But if you did,

they'll probably give you a break.

Merry Christmas.

Was he under the desk?

Yep, I know my Bobby.

So you ready to face my parents?

I think I can handle it.

Yes. Wait out front.

Before my mother gets the

chance to berate you...

I have to say you look amazing.

- Flattery will get you everywhere.

- Oh. Heh.

Honey, why is everything so quiet?

This is a party, isn't it?

Don't tell them.

They might actually smile.

Oh, got it.

Incoming Ballantines at 10 o'clock.

Remember, my parents are old money.

- Establishment. Upper crust.

- Aloof. Arrogant.

- This is gonna be fun. Hi.

- Hi.

- Dad.

- James.

- Oh, darling.

- Mom.

I'd like you to meet Tory Bell.


- Told you.

- Well, I'm glad you could join us, Tara.

It's Tory.

Happy holidays.

Not half as happy as yours is going to be.

The south of France sounds so exciting.

Oh, you've never been?

Sorry. Heh.

Will you just excuse me for a moment?

Dad, I know you have your reservations,

but I really have feelings for Tory.

- How much do you know about this girl?

- I care about her.

I know I wanna be with her.

And I know for me, that's enough.

Guess who.

Sorry, drawing a blank.

I'm hurt, Tornado.

Spending six years on the inside

kept your memory very fresh for me.

I didn't know they

allowed calls this late.

Read the morning papers, Bell.

I'm out. And I'm coming for you.

All of you.

- Fresh glass?

- I have to go.

- Go where?

- I have to leave.

- I get it. You've had enough.

- No, I have to leave New York right now.

- No, what...?

- I can't get into it right now.

It's just... It's too much.

But I love you.

I'm about to give my toast.

Where should we all stand?

Unfortunately, I have to go...

but I'm sure it will

be a great toast.

- You okay?

- I'm fine.

- You sure?

- I'm sure.

I have to go help my parents...

with stuff.

- Tory.

- James, please.

Tory, I just need to know that

you're okay. That we're okay.

We're totally okay.

Look, I promise, I will explain

everything to you at New Year's.

- New Year's? What about...?

- I will so make this up to you.

It will be a whole different

kind of celebration.

Something like...

You can do that?

I'm willing to try.

Okay. I'm completely baffled,

but my New Year's countdown starts now.

New Year's.

You are a mysterious

woman, Tory Bell.

- Ma'am.

- Thank you.

10th and 1st for a quick stop.

Then Trenton, New Jersey.

In a hurry, please.

- Baby.

- Daddy.

- Sweetheart.

- Mommy.

- Did you flip your daddy again?

- Yeah.

Ma, clothes.

Oh. How'd I raise such a prude?

She's so cute.

Look at you. You look like

a real New Yorker now.

I didn't hardly...

I'm gonna get you something

for your shoulder.

She took you down pretty hard.

That's my girl.

What were you thinking, Dad?

That move has never worked on me.

You're home for the holidays?

- Kind of for the holidays.

- Not spending it with that new guy?

I Googled him. I gotta know

what my little girl is up to.

Guys, guys, guys, look,

I'm so happy to see you...

but I'm actually not just

here for the holidays.

- I got a call.

- Monte's Motorcycles?

- I put your name in the raffle.

- I got a call from Manucci.

He's still got 20 years

on his sentence.

He's out, and he's coming for us.

- For me.

- He threatened you?

I was always afraid of this.

You took him out when you were

a teenager. Drove him crazy.

We gotta take him down again.
