AMC - Sonyab's recaps 12/23/09
Wiping the slate clean.
Krystal talks with Amanda and Jake about Jake's birthday being on Christmas day. WOW! I'm impressed! The writers remembered his birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAKE! Krystal mentions that Tad got a call and left - she thinks he went to see Liza. Jake wonders if it has to do with David's gift. He wonders whether to get involved or not. Krystal says maybe he should if this has to do with David's sayonora speech and his dirty mojo! Amanda tells her that David's words were from the heart!
Casa D Lavery:
Ryan is at home with Emma, who says they forgot an ornament for the tree - it's Greenlee's butterfly. UGH! Ryan puts Emma to bed, then looks at the butterfly before putting gifts under the tree.
Liza and Tad are discussing the death of D.A. Willis. She remarks that David may be able to shed a little light on this. Tad turns to see David come in. Liza says she called him. David comes over and Liza asks about Willis's fate. David laughs and says it's win/win. He talks as though Liza will automatically become the D.A. Liza says she hasn't decided yet. David doesn't really care - he just wants her to draw up the custody papers for Amanda and Jake. Tad and David get into it about how sincere David is being. Tavid = love! Amanda walks up and asks if there's a problem. Jake takes Tad's side, and Amanda becomes upset at them circling a dying man like a pack of wolves! She leaves with David. AMANDA YOU STUPID IDIOT! Jake asks Tad to smash him in the head with something heavy! ROFL! Tad hits him on the head! ROFL ROFL! That cracked me up! ROFL! A guy who works at CONfusion walked past them and gave them a look ROFL!
Zak and Kendall:
Stranded in their car, Zak and Kendall wonder what to do. Zak is unable to start the car, and Kendall notices a light outside. Zak decides they should check it out. They go into a chapel They are stunned when Father Clarence appears. He apologizes for not remembering them. They explain their dilemma. He offers them some blankets, and goes to get them, saying it's nice to have company. Kendall tells Zak Father Clarence is like a funny angel. Father Clarence rejoins them, and asks Zak if he has a Christmas wish. Zak would love to have a fresh start and wipe the slate clean. When Zak leaves the room, Father Clarence asks Kendall if she has a Christmas wish. She asks for the same thing Zak did - a clean slate. Clarence tells her to be careful what she wishes for because if you wipe the slate clean, the good things can be wiped out too. While Kendall and Zak eat cookies Father Clarence blows out the candle. In what looks like a dream, Kendall and Zak meet for the first time in the chapel - both of their cars have broken down. They play cards. Zak tells her he's going to look for help. He leaves, and each of them stands either side of the closed door. Suddenly, they awaken in the car, and both of them say they just had a strange dream - they realize they had the same dream and made the same wish. They had a it's a wonderful life in a way. That is a very good lesson to learn and a good question to ask. Would you want to wipe the slate clean? If you do the good things can be whiped otu too. Anyway, They suddenly notice a sign - they're only 5 miles from Pine Valley! The car starts and they drive off.
Slater home and Casa D Lavery:
Erica looks out the window worrying about them getting home. Opal reassures her that someone will be looking out for them. Opal offers to stay with Erica, but she insists that Opal go home to her family. They hug and Opal leaves, saying, Merry Christmas, galpal. Awwww. :) As she goes. Erica's phone suddenly rings - it's Ryan wondering if there's word from Kendall. Erica says no. He suggests that they watch a movie together from across town - they search for a match and find White Christmas. That's it? They didn't do, Do you have this and this movie? No. This movie? No. ROFL! They just got 1 movie and BOOM they both have it ROFL. As Ryan pushes the button to start watching the movie at the same time as Erica, he realizes that it's not White Christmas, but a tape of Greenlee! He tells Erica that he thinks Emma is awake - he has to go. He presses the play button again, and Greenlee prepares to deliver a message. She tells Ryan how much she loves him, and that she wants him to be happy - with or without her. She wants him to move on, to love and be loved. Ryan shows up at the Slater home. He tells Erica that he got a sitter for Emma because he needed to make a confession - he ended up watching a video that Greenlee made for him. He explains that she was freeing him. Erica asks what she was freeing him for, and Ryan takes her hands and looks into her eyes. Ryan tells Erica he's ready for a little definition at this point - and he hopes he hasn't waited too long - and he hopes she wants that too. They kiss. UGH! Erica says he needs to get home to Emma. She tells him the answer to his question is 'no' - he didn't wait too long. They kiss again, and he leaves. Erica is asleep and wakes up and sees Kendall come in! Kendall wants to see the boys. Zak comes in and smiles at Erica. Zak grabs the boys and brings them to Kendall! AWWWWWWWWWWW!
Casa D Lavery:
Ryan has returned home and opens the door to go out on the balcony. A wind blows through into the house and the butterfly falls from the Christmas tree and breaks.Oh oh.
Nurse Gayle sits watching her patient in a little room. The monitor changes and she gasps, My God!
David thanks Amanda for supporting him as they walk in. Amanda says she thinks that David should be able to spend this Christmas with Trevor. David acknowledges that she is stuck in the middle between him and Jake. Just then, the phone rings - it's Nurse Gayle, who tells him the patient has taken a miraculous turn - he needs to be up there right away! David hangs up and tells Amanda that she needs to go back to Trevor. After she leaves, he calls Gayle back and says he's on his way.
David comes into the little room and takes the chart from Nurse Gayle. He says he never really believed this was possible. He smiles as he nears the patient and takes her hand. He wishes her Merry Christmas - it's Greenlee! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Opal is back with Krystal when Tad and Jake come in. Jake says he lost control where David is concerned again. Tad reminds him how Amanda grew up - with Janet from another planet! Jake goes on a rant about it being Christmas and his wife is nowhere to be seen - she's at the mausoleum! Jake's rant was so funny! ROFL! Including the Santa game with Amanda! ROFL! Liza arrives and helps with some wrapping before saying she has to go. Tad walks her to the door and asks if she's decided about the D.A. job. She hasn't. Opal watches them as they hug and Liza kisses Tad on the cheek before leaving. There is another knock at the door - it's Amanda - she announces that something is going on with David - she overheard him at Wildwind booking a private jet to go to Gloucester! DOH!
