    • Craig: Meg was suppose to be my last chance to be a father, after I lost Johnny.
      Carly: I know how hard it is for you.
      Craig: You don't have a clue, excuse me I know you're trying to be kind. But you couldn't possibly relate to the sheer hell that it is when you lose every single one of your children. I mean look at you, look at your mantle Carly, they're all here.
      Carly: I'm sorry, that your children are gone. I really am.
      Craig: Johnny's still out there somewhere but, if I passed him on the street, would I even know him.

    • Meg: You know Craig asked me if he could take a look at Eliza. And every part of me wanted to say no.
      Dusty: Why didn't you?
      Meg: Because, I lost a baby to, and now I have a wonderful little girl. And seeing his pain, I just couldn't say no to him.
      Dusty: Are you kicking me out right now?
      Meg: Dusty, you're an amazing friend but, Eliza is my daughter, my responsibility. And even though her father isn't here, I cannot let you take the place of.
      Dusty: I'm not trying to take her father's place.
      Meg: I know that and as wonderful as you've been to Eliza, she can't take Johnny's place either. Look I don't wanna hurt you.
      Dusty: I gotcha. Merry Christmas.

    • Carly: You alright?
      Craig: Fine!
      Carly: Liar.
      Craig: And proud of it.
      Carly: Was that hard for you, seeing Meg and her baby. I guess it reminded you of Johnny.
      Craig: She's his cousin, I didn't even think of that, until I asked Meg if I could see her. And when I did. I'll drop you off.
      Carly: You know what I can call a cab.
      Craig: Don't worry I'm not going to try and come in. I've bought myself into one too many door way's tonight.

    • Craig: Does this mean you've given up on Johnny?
      Dusty: Never, and when I find him, I'll do whatever it takes to keep you away from him.
      Craig: You can try.
      Dusty: You own daughter doesn't even want you near him, face it you're a lousy father.
      Craig: I never had a chance to be a father to Johnny. But I will. I will find him, and I will raise him.
      Dusty: Funny you never saying anything about, loving him.

    • Craig: Did he upset you?

      Craig: And miss fun times like this, never. Merry Christmas one and all, be seeing you.

    • Carly: I thought it was just me, the way I expect everything to be the same, but it's not. It's Christmas, J.J's not even here. Sage wants to be at her cousin's, where a mother and a father actually live together in the same home. Parker, I don't even know what he's thinking anymore. Thing's are definitely not the same, you and I both need to face that.

    • Jack: May I talk to you for a minute, outside please now!
      Jack & Carly walk outside
      Jack: What are you thinking?
      Carly: You know I don't think anybody knew that Meg was coming home. If I had known I certainly wouldn't of had Craig bring me over here.
      Jack: Right, right cause it wasn't Meg's skin you were trying to get under now was it.
      Carly: If you have a problem with Craig then you should take it out on Craig.
      Jack: My problem is with you darling.
      Carly: Oh, of course it is dear. Because, you have a problem with something I've done, as usual. Will you ever, ever, ever! Back off!
      Jack: I will never, ever back off, when it come to my children.
      Carly: Even Janet wants you to just put it to rest, just for one night. So don't bring me out here, when clearly you're the one who needs a time out.
      Jack: You brought Sage over to Holden and Lily's, when you knew I had dinner plans Carly, you didn't even check with me.
      Carly: Wait a second, Sage went over there to play today, she asked me if she could stay for supper. And I told her that she had to call you and ask you.
      Jack: She said, that you said, that she could stay for dinner.
      Carly: Do you hear yourself, she's eleven what's your excuse.

    • Lucy: Can you get us a room at the Lakeview?
      Alison: Well are you sure?
      Lucy: I can pay for it, I just need someone else to sign in.
      Alison: Dusty lives at the Lakeview. And your father's probably staying there to.
      Lucy: It's the last place either of them would look for us, me or Johnny. And if I need to leave quickly I can. Please Alison.
      Alison: Tell me why you've come back here.
      Lucy: It's Johnny, he's sick.

      Carly: Hi, he gave me a ride.
      Jack: Why?
      Craig: Relax? Were not going to crash your party. And you must be the newest. Sorry, the new Mrs Snyder.

      Janet: Oh, I've heard of you.
      Craig: Well, if you let me know who from, I'll tell you if it's true or not.

    • Carly: Oh, oh Parker forgot to bring these presents to the farm.
      Craig: Heaven forbid, what ever shall you do?
      Carly: I call Jack, and tell him that they're here.
      Craig: No, bad idea. Jack and his bride will take that as a veiled attempt for you to spend one more precious moment with Jack.
      Carly: Ok, then I'll call Parker.
      Craig: Even worse, Jack will think that you're using your son. In a veiled attempt for you to spend one.
      Carly: Ok, then I'll just wait for Parker to call me then Ok?
      Craig: He'll accuse you of being a bad sport withholding presents in a jealous fit of peak.
      Carly: Well, then Craig, what do you suggest I do?
      Craig: I will drive you out to the farm, and you can drop them off.
      Carly: That is the worse idea of all of them.
      Craig: Why, don't you wanna crash Jack and Chrissie's Christmas?
      Carly: It's Janet.
      Craig: I've always been partial to blonde's.
      Carly: Well you can forget it, it's not gonna happen.
      Craig: Come on Carly, you know you want to.

    • Jack: What, what are you doing?
      Carly: I'm getting some eggnog, you want some?
      Jack: How can you let Craig Montgomery in this house, around the kids?
      Carly: I didn't he came down the chimney.
      Jack: Ha ha ha ha. Ok, what's going on with you two.
      Carly: Oh, why do you care Jack? You have a new wife, whose keeping you warm. You're spending Christmas with the children. What do you care what's going on between me and Craig?
      Jack: Because, Craig gets you in trouble.
      Carly: Oh, well you've made it clear time and time again, that I am trouble, no assistance needed. Plus you don't have to worry about me any more.
      Jack: You got that right.

    • Jack: What is he, what are you doing here?
      Craig: I was just dropping off some presents, nice sweater by the way.
