  • Episode Description
  • Chrismukkah once again returns to the Cohens. Ryan and Taylor have an accident while putting up the holiday lights and they end up in a sort of parallel universe, where all is not like it is meant to be, since Ryan does not exist. While - in the real world - everybody is worrying about them, except Taylor's mom, they eventually manage to fix things, also thanks to a letter from the past.moreless

    • Ryan: Uh, what... what did you mean "knew"?

    • Taylor: I'm so grateful that if I have to be in a parallel universe that you're here with me. Ryan: Well, that's- Taylor (interrupting): Of course, you probably wish that you were with someone you actually wanted to date that would be nice, wouldn't it? Ryan: Ah...even in a parallel universe she never stops.

    • The picture of Marissa and Julie that Taylor sees when she is talking to Mima is actually a picture from the packaging of the third season DVD.

    • The opening credits have a different music in the episode for the first time in the show.

    • Music: "California" by Mates of State "Paranoid Android" by Sia "Into Dust" by Ashtar Command

    Trivia (6)

    • As Ryan is leaving Kirsten and Jimmy's house, a worker calls Kirsten the "Dragon Lady". This was a nickname Sandy used when referring to Julie Cooper at the start of season 1.

    • Luke Ward was not seen in the alternative universe, although it was hinted he never moved away from Newport because his brothers were seen teasing and bullying Seth which was what Luke use to do.

    • The nurse that gives Kirsten the letter that Marissa wrote to Ryan is the same nurse that Julie talked to in S3 "The Aftermath", when she was trying to get in to see Trey after visiting hours.

    • In the alternate universe there is a poster in the shopping complex saying that Johnny Harper is the Pacwest Surf Star. Johnny Harper was a friend of Marissa's in season 3 who was run over because of Ryan and therefore couldn't compete in the surf tour, although he was picked for it. Obviously because Ryan didn't exist in 'alt world' Johnny wasn't run over.

    • The Robert's address is: 4944 Pelican Grove, Newport Beach, CA 92660

    • Kaitlin: We’re having a very Britney Christmas, mother. Julie: Yes, watch out, I might put you on my lap while we drive out there. Julie is referring to an incident involving singer Britney Spears. In January 2006, Britney was photographed driving with her 5 month old son Sean Preston in her lap. Britney claimed she was trying to quickly escape the paparazzi, and didn’t have time to put her son back in his car seat.
