Jesse: Listen, trust me, I get it.
Chrissy: Yeah, I know, and I really am happy for her. It's just... kinda hard.
*Holly runs out of the dance* *She sees Chrissy and Jesse* *Jesse notices her first*
Jesse: Hey, Chrissy, I just realized that I totally forgot my shoes in the gym.
Chrissy: But you're wearing--
*Jesse takes off his heels and chucks them into the dance* *He runs in after them*
Chrissy: Oh! Hey, Holly! What are you doing here? Where's Nick?
Holly: Uh, he's... he's at the dance...
Chrissy: Then shouldn't you be..?
Holly: Chrissy, I like Nick, but that's it. Sure, he's hot, and he's great with a hockey stick, but the connection's not there.
Chrissy: What are you saying?
Holly: I'm saying that... here goes... there's someone else I want to go to the dance with.
*Chrissy blinks, then realizes*
Holly: Really. Like, really really. Chrissy, you're the most amazing person I know, and you're really freaking pretty, and...
*Chrissy cups Holly's face, grinning* *Holly blushes and shuts up*
*They kiss* *Holly's tail waves* *Christina Aguilera's "This Christmas" swells in the background*
Chrissy: That was--
Holly: Uh, a Christmas miracle?
Chrissy: Okay, yeah, but I wouldn't have expected you to say something that cheesy.
Holly: Miracle's not over. You know the DJ, Aurora? She owes me a favor.
*Smash cut to Krampus reading a text from Holly* *It reads "SKIP THE BOREALIS HOUSE PLS THX <3 U DAD"* *He huffs, but smiles*
Chrissy, hand over her mouth: Do you mean..?
Holly: I wasn't there for you during the talent show, but I'm going to be here for you from now on. How about a duet?
*Chrissy takes her hand* *They re-enter the gym for the dance* *The song they perform is, you're goddamn right, "All I Want for Christmas is You"*
*During the performance, Jesse, who is going wild with support, trips* *Nick catches him in his arms for the sequel tease*
V.O.: So, yeah. My name's Holly. It's Christmasy, and I'm... cool with that. I'm not the most popular girl in school, and I didn't get a prince charming, but I got something more important: the coolest girlfriend in the world. Someone amazing enough to make me believe--ugh, here goes--that holidays might not be Hell. So au revoir, sayonara, good night, and Happy Holidays from me and Chrissy.
*Fade to black* *Credits sequence is set to "Deck the Halls" by Relient K and "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" by the Barenaked Ladies ft. Sarah McLachlan*
Uhh, hi. My name's Holly. Yeah, I know, it's so... Christmasy. But unlike the plastics in the school dance committee, I'm not exactly feeling warm and jolly about the winter formal. My boyfriend Darren dumped me like a stocking full of coal over Thanksgiving Break to go out with my ex-best friend, and my new crush is super-hottie football star Nicholas Mistletoe. He doesn't even know I'm alive, and if he did, why would he want to go out with me--the daughter of Krampus? I guess it's true what they say--holidays are Hell. *Fall Out Boy's "Yule Shoot Your Eye Out" plays*
