It’s Christmas eve – circa 1980-something or other , and Jessica Wakefield is feeling nostalgic – she digs out her photo album and reminisces over past holiday highlights!
JESS : Ohh , here’s a good one – last year when Enid passed out from drinking too much spiked punch at Bruce’s Christmas eve bash – was George furious!
LIZ : Hmm , I seem to remember you were chasing after George , right around that time. You didn’t have anything to do with that spiked punch did you Jess?
JESS : Liz , How can you cross examine your very own twin on Christmas eve?! This will cheer you up – me singing at the Christmas Pageant! Wasn’t I was amazing!
LIZ: ( mutters ) amazingly awful..
JESS : What was that?
Liz quickly turns a page in the album –
LIZ : Oh , Jess look our Christmas Slumber party! Remember your footie pajamas!
( laughing )
JESS : (sniff ) I don’t see what’s so funny ..oh now I do , what is that you’re wearing Santa’s tent!
LIZ : now here’s a Christmas Memory I’d like to forget!
JESS : What? …oh. I distinctly told Mom I wanted Cheer Bear.
LIZ : Jess , dad got a black eye fighting that Christmas mob for those bears you should’ve been grateful! Besides mine was much smaller.
JESS : But I didn’t want Grumpy Bear!
LIZ : Well , you certainly were a matching pair!
JESS : Ha! Ha! Who knew I had such a witty sister. Do you think this Christmas will be as much fun Lizzie?
LIZ : Even better.
JESS : Merry Christmas Lizzie!
LIZ : Merry Christmas Jess!
