They say buying

a home at Christmastime

is not a good idea.

I disagree.

Because a home the

right home is your home

for any time of the year.

But can't you just picture

it your little one

growing up here, waking

up on Christmas morning

with those bright,

joy-filled eyes,

just wondering what

Santa has brought?

This is a home for a

family a family like yours.

We'll take it.

When can we sign the contacts?

Come by my office

this afternoon,

and Alice and I will

have everything ready.

Thanks, Liz.

It's so homey.

But don't forget to bring the

check for the deposit money.

Will do.

That's your third

sale this month.

I thought Christmas was

supposed to be slow.

For amateurs, maybe.

You can sell anything

at Christmas if you

know the right buttons to push.

OK, bye.


Let's get this stuff packed up.

We've got to show the

Fairhome house in an hour,

and I want it to look

like a holiday wonderland

before the clients get there.

Are you and Mason doing

anything fun for Christmas?

Just getting through

it as fast as possible.

You don't have any Christmas

spirit at all, do ya?

It's an inconvenient holiday.

All the banks and escrow

companies are closed.

Mason is off school.

It just it throws me off.


Can you get this stuff piled up?

I'm going to check messages.

New message,

sent today at 10:21 AM.

Hey, it's Barry.

Just wanted you to know I got my

son to sign off on that credit.

We should be good to go.

Talk to you later.


New message sent

today at 10:
25 AM.

Hi, Liz.

It's Catherine.

We moved in over

the weekend, and we

just couldn't be happier.

You're the best.

Thank you so much.

We'll talk to you later.


New message sent

10 AM.

Hello, Elizabeth.

It's Dad.

Just thought I'd check

in and see if you'd given

any thought to coming up

and seeing Hollyville.

It's really an amazing place.

And it would be nice to see

you and Mason over the holiday.

Let me know.


Now, see?

That sounds like fun.

You and Mason should go spend

Christmas with your dad.

Nobody is working

after tomorrow anyway.


We were never really

big on Christmas.

Although I am worried about him.

I think he's going through

some kind of a life crisis.

Younger girlfriend?

I wish.


He's he's found this town

out in the middle of nowhere,

and I don't know.

He's just fallen

in love with it.

He's bought a cabin

and everything.

That sounds great.

So spontaneous.

My father is the least

spontaneous man I've ever met.

He's been working 50 hours

a week at the same bank

for over 20 years.


Sounds familiar.

I'm nothing like my father.

You're a total workaholic.


If you're in town, you

have to come with me

for this most amazing thing.

That doesn't sound good.

Holiday speed dating.

Kind of a last ditch effort

not to be miserably lonely

over Christmas and New Year's.

I was right.

That sounds tragic.

You've got to date sometime.

Dating just leads

to disappointment.

You have to be open

to possibilities, Liz.

Hey, I'm open to the possibility

of a good sale any day.

Hey, John.

It's Liz McCann.

I just wanted to

confirm you received

our counteroffer on Breyerwood.

Call me.

Oh, hey, Dad, it's me.

Look, I don't think we're going

to be able to make it up there.

I'm just swamped

with work right now,

so I think we're going to have

to uh take a rain check.

Oh, Mason, no.


What is going on here?

How cool is this?

I only used the one thing

of laundry detergent.

It makes a lot of bubbles.

Where is the babysitter?

Inside, I think.
