Later, the Green family is watching Miracle on 34th Street. Mary and Cameron are asleep. Kenny is brooding. Meghan is so alone in the world that it's terrifying. Oh, sorry, reading from my high school journal again. It's hard to tell what is the script and what is from my adolescent scribblings. Is everyone tired of this episode? I'll try to summarize. The power goes out. Kenny and Cameron start fighting. They fight so much that they knock over the Christmas tree. Mitch has to scream at them. They start fighting again. Whose fault is it? Mostly Kenny's fault. Okay, Cameron too. Elizabeth is actually cowering in the corner. Everyone is yelling at Kenny and Cam until Mitch yells that they are brothers, and one day they have to leave that house and now is when they are deciding if they are going to leave as friends or strangers. He's all yelling and his forehead is seriously creasing. He storms off and Kenny and Cameron start fighting again until Mary's neck cords have to get into it. There's a knock at my door. It's the UPS guy. I tell him that it's pretty late for a package, but he says he was paid extra to deliver it. I open the box. It's an anvil. The note says, "You're gonna need it. Love, Sars." Mary says that when Mitch was a kid he and his brother were just like Cam and Kenny. A returned letter is the closest communication they've had in ten years. She tells them to think about what Mitch said. I rearrange my Christmas lights to spell "I GET IT" because I. Get. It. There's much more about "Uncle Steve" but since we all get it I'm leaving it alone. They decide to clean the mess up.
Good Girl Meghan helps put the star back on top of the tree as Elizabeth asks why she's been so quiet since Ferret left. Meghan says that everything is fine and that Ferret and Clay are going skiing for the holidays. Elizabeth turns the knife deeper by asking if Meghan is, "Hoping for a chairlift accident." Meghan says they are just friends. Elizabeth asks if that's how friends kiss. Meghan says that was a mistake. Elizabeth turns to Page 25 in the book of So You're Shooting A Very Special Christmas Episode: Lessons Learned From Grandma. "Honey, everyone makes mistakes. It's how you handle it [sic] that counts." Meghan says she knows and straightens the star. Kenny and Cam say that they aren't like Mitch and his brother. Kenny says he doesn't want to be like that. Oh, and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" drones on in the back. Cam hangs the last of the ornaments (I think it's a miniature of Sars's anvil) back on the tree and turns to Kenny. He pulls an envelope out of his pocket, takes out a piece of paper, rips it in half and hands an end to Kenny. "It's your Christmas present. I'm giving it to you early." "It's half your paycheck." Cam looks up because this is going to be difficult and explains that the window breaking was half his fault, so he wants Kenny to take his gift. Mitch and Mary look on approvingly. Yeah, thanks for the torn-up check, asshole. Now neither of us gets paid. The lights come back on, but the television doesn't start blaring, and the music stops. Whatever. Mitch says he prefers the lights off. He turns them off and kisses Mary. Elizabeth brings over the Menorah and says "Happy Hanukkah." "It ended two weeks ago." "Better late than never." Mitch says his brother always used to help him with that. Sars's anvil falls on my toe. Mitch lights the Menorah and sings. When it's over Kenny says, "It's perfect." Cam says that he has no idea what it means. Apparently they just found out he's Jewish. Mary says that it was beautiful. Mitch says that it's not exactly to tradition, but next year they'll do it right.
