  • It's Christmas time and Eric kind of dies a goes to heaven. He picks up gifts for everyone in heaven while his family is at home worring about him.

    This Christmas episode was on of the best Christmas episodes ever!! This episode of 7th Heaven was really different, but so awesome to watch. When Eric went to heaven, it looked like he was in a dream or something. Everything looked so bright with a lot of Christas colours. My favourite part of this episode is when Eric is looking for gifts to give his family. It was nice to see Jenny, Annie's mother in this episode because we didn't really get to know her that well in the first season. One of the funniest things in this episode was when Jenny said to eric,"Can I tell you something, just between you and me? The internet sucks the life out of time.". I like this quote because it's so true. This episode was a good Christmas episode to watch. I give it a 10/10.moreless
  • A wonderful presentation of what heaven must be like.

    We sure need more shows like this one on TV. This show gives so many examples of the good qualities that people need more of.

    I'm enjoying this episode, as I do every episode. This one particular episode is one of the better ones.

    I particularly like this presentation of what heaven must be like. It must be incredible to live in a world free of all the negatives we live with today.

    I really wish that they could get this back on the network channels so more people can benefit from watching it.

    My girls are sitting here watching this episode, all worried that Eric won't make it back to his family.moreless
  • It was okay, a little different.

    Eric "dies" and goes to heaven. Once there he sees Jenny and she helps him pick up gifts for Matt, Mary, Lucy, Simon, Ruthie, Sam, David and Annie. He also meets other people who have affiliations with people he has helped on earth including Martin's mother. Back at the house, Lucy and Kevin have come home early. They have decided that for Christmas, they will set one day aside for helping people for themselves, another for helping people for Eric and one more for helping people for God. Ruthie, Kevin, Lucy, Sam and David are worried about Eric, but Annie has faith. Eric is granted to go back to earth by his guardian angel.

    This episode was okay. It was a little different experience that I had expected. I didn't like it too much. This episode gets a 7.5 out of 10.moreless
  • Eric goes to heaven. His family is worried about him but Annie. She knows that he will be home soon.

    Wow! This was a special episode. Eric goes to heaven? How come? I am glad the he didnt die. He went up there to shop for his family. He got Matt Time so that way Matt will have more time for family. He got Mary an Eraser so that way she would erase her past mistakes. He got Lucy Courge so she will have courge to have another baby. He got Simon purpose. He got Ruthie Dignity, Loyalty, and Beauty and for Sam and David he got them Cooperation, Understanding, Respect. For Annie something special.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Look really closely at the way Kevin, Lucy, Savannah, Ruthie, and the twins are standing at the very end of the episode when they say "Merry Christmas!" with their bodies and positioning, they actually make an image of a Christmas tree. Kevin stands in the back to symbolize the top of the tree; Lucy, Savannah, and Ruthie are in the middle; and the twins are in front. David gives it away by raising his arms to symbolize the branches.

    • List of the Presents:
      Matt - Time (more time for family)
      Mary - Eraser (to erase past mistakes)
      Lucy - Courage (to have another baby)
      Simon - Purpose

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Annie: I love you.
      Eric: And I love you. More than ever, Annie.
      Annie: What's this? What do you have in your hand?
      Eric: Oh...I don't know...
      Annie: You don't know? You don't know that this is...this is the pin that my dad gave to my mom when I was born?
      Eric: She did?
      Annie: Yes, Eric, she did. Where on Earth did you get this? (Eric stammers) Oh. Oh, Eric, don't. It's okay. I don't want to know where you got it. Just...thank you. Thank you. (hugs him)

    • Jenny: (trying to convince Eric to give something other than faith to Annie for Christmas) She has faith--she has faith to spare. How could she not, after being married to you all these years?

    • Jenny: You okay?
      Eric: I don't know, I'm kinda light-headed.
      Jenny: Or, maybe light-hearted.

    • Jenny: (to Eric) Can I tell you something, just between you and me? The internet sucks the life out of time.

  • NOTES (3)


    • Jenny: This is the happiest place not on earth!

      This is an allusion to the famous Disneyland saying, "The happiest place on earth!"

    • Jenny: (giving Eric an example of what can be accomplished when someone has a purpose in life) I mean, just look what happened to Paul Newman when he got purpose. Good Lord, you think he's a big star down there? Why, up here-- I mean big! Really big!

      Jenny is making an allusion to the film star Paul Newman, and the many philanthropic endeavors he's involved in, aside from his acting career.

    • When Eric and Jenny go for a carriage ride, a marquee on a theatre in the background reads "The Last Gift". This is an allusion to Eric having asked for his life back, "The Last Gift".
