Where it all began
JTT is walking out of the town with his prize money when he sees Robbie being arrested and his car being towed. Robbie sees him and begs for his help in bailing him out of jail. This is the part where I think that JTT will realize the true meaning of Christmas and help Robbie out even after all Robbie did to him, but no. Instead, JTT flags down a taxi to go to the airport. The taxi driver tells him about how the guy he beat in the race is the mayor of the town, and always uses the money to buy turkeys for poor people. JTT does The Right Thing and gives the money to the mayor. But what about Robbie? Well, youll never see him again, so I can only guess that Robbies family is going to spend their Christmas crying because their son is in jail instead of with them.
Theres a shot of Mary on the bus. Her face is without expression.
JTT calls up his family. Unfortunately for me, his crappy sister answers and is all precocious and smart-ass. JTT says he cant get home in time, so his sister decides to send him the money for a plane ticket. Well, when I was ten, I didnt have enough money for a plane ticket, but fine. JTT goes to the airport, but cant pick up the ticket because he has no ID. So he sneaks into a dog carrier headed for New York. No explanation is provided on how he is able to do this. Anyway, the dog farts a lot and the trip is unpleasant. As is the watching of it.
Back at JTTs house, Dads upset because its 5:06 and JTT isnt home yet.
JTT tries to sneak onto a train going to his hometown, but gets caught for not having a ticket. He gets thrown off the train instead of arrested.
Dad pokes a stick at the fire and is still upset.
