Joy to the world,

the Lord has come,

let earth receive

her king.

Why'd you do it?

My rocket ship

needed to fly.

You put orange paint all over

your classroom wall, Caleb.

Dad says rocket's

we're non-boosters.

And flames shoot out

and lift it into the air.

Okay, listen sweetie,

when you're staying at daddy's

paint all the flames you want,

but anywhere else it's

considered vandalism.

You just don't

believe in flying.

You're right. I don't.

We don't live in the air,

we live on the ground and on

the ground we behave better.

Come on, Uncle Owen's

expecting us.

We're gonna bring him

some Christmas spirit.

(guitar playing)

Hey!

I thought you guys were

coming over earlier.

Ugh, someone

threatened his status

on Santa's nice list

at school today.

Is that true little man?

Santa won't find out.

Uh, Santa knows

everything.

How?

Magic.

Magic?

Yeah, you don't

believe me?

Go look it up.

Encyclopedia's

on the shelf.

(sigh) You don't have

to decorate sis.

Yes I do,

because you won't.

It'll do you good to

be a little festive.

(laughs)

Oh wow.

You remember this?

Of course, this is

my robo-reindeer.

A robot reindeer with lunchboxes

and an animated special.

(robot voice) "What's

your name space cadet?"

"And what's you

major malfunction?"

Here, you could definitely

use a little of this.

Oh, pot kettle black.

I'm fine thank

you very much.

You got divorced,

not ordained.

Don't you think it's time

you get back out there?

Look, I'm good at a lot of

things, being a mom, a vet...

But love, love I'm

just not good at.

Well sometimes you

have to take risks.

Like you live life on the

edge Mr. Achy Breaky Heart.

Eh.

Owen loves not like a song;

people don't just waltz into

your life and change

it for the better.

Well maybe you just need

to change the station.

Whoa!

Uncle Owen, will you go with me

to the father-son football game?

Your dad can't

make it buddy?

He's flying.

Holiday's are the busiest

time of year for pilots.

Of course little man.

I'm there.

Thank you.

Come on.

Let's help your

mom decorate.

You would pick

out the old lights,

those probably

don't even work.

You have to

take a chance.

How do you know

they won't work?

(laughs)

Unless you try.

Just need a little magic,

that's all.

More like a miracle.

Ohhh!

Ho, ho!

Magic.

See mommy,

you just have to try.

You just have to try.

It's that time of year when

everybody's dancin',

The snow is falling down, but

we're warm inside.

By the candlelight I see your

eyes are talking to me.

And you'll always be my

Christmas Valentine.

Great job with the

Christmas party, Mia.

Well our re-introduction of

robo-reindeer was the most

successful ad campaign in

the agencies history.

We deserve to celebrate.

Wait a second.

"What's your name,

Space Cadet?"

Sean.

"Hi Sean. Will you come with

me to Santa's Space Base?"

I love that we put the

North Pole on the moon.

It's something

all right.

No, this is something.

You're proposing

to Kimber?

Open it up!

Wow.

When are you

proposing?

Christmas.

I have it all planned.

Why wait a couple of weeks?

You should do it tonight.

So we can all gush

and celebrate more.

Hey, sweetheart!

Kimber!

Mia!

How was your day?

Same as always, another

fun-filled day on Wall Street.

Yours?

Great.

Our robo-reindeer campaign

is a huge success.

Congratulations.

Thanks.

You okay?

It's been a rough day.

You know, I was gonna

wait to do this but,

I want to talk to

you about us.

I know what you're

gonna say.

You do?

We should take a break.

Let's go talk

in my office.

What are you saying?

We've gone stale.

I act bored

because I am.

I guess that's why when Larry

Fitz Gilbert asked me out,

I couldn't say no.

Nothing happened, but

there's an attraction there

and it's thrilling.

I haven't felt that

way in so long.

Back up!

Larry Fitz Gilbert?

The bowtie guy?

He's engaged.

They're on a break.

Whatever!

You haven't noticed our

relationship has crumbled.

No.

I envisioned a

future with you.

(sighs)

Oh no, Sean.

Is that?

Was.

Larry Fitz Gilbert

kinda changes things.

How did I not see this?

Because, Sean,

you're never present.

I'm standing right here.

Yes physically, but mentally

you're always looking

to the future and neglecting

what's happening now.

Including us.

We haven't been happy,

really happy in a while.

All you had to

do was tell me.

I've been trying, but

again you're too busy

planning the future.

You're like the human

version of tomorrow land.

I own an advertising

agency.

Coming up with

the next trend,

staying ahead of the game

is part of the job.

Yeah, well that doesn't

work in relationships.

Which is why we need

to take a break

so we can re-evaluate

this relationship.

Larry Fitz Gilbert.

He's spontaneous, exciting,

and we have a connection.

I'm sure you do.

Let's just take

some time off.

Well that doesn't

sound promising.

At least for now.

I really hope you have

a Merry Christmas.

Well, Christmas

is two weeks away.

We wouldn't wanna get

ahead of ourselves.

(slam)

What's your major

malfunction, Sean?

Hey Chappy. Man, it feels

like the North Pole in here.

Yeah.

You guys sell toys?

That's funny.

Real funny.

I haven't heard

that one today.

Boiler's busted.

Courtney's been trying

to fix it all morning.

Why didn't

she call me?
