Get the presents,

always lacking

Sasheer: I did?

Chris: Yeah, I pointed you. Why didn’t you guys all come in?

Kenan: We have no idea what the song is.

Sasheer: We all know ‘Silent Night’. Why don’t we just sing that?

[Cut to Chris and Cecily]

Chris: I don’t know Silent Night.

Jen: Well, what show is it from?

Cecily: It’s Christmas After All by Keith and Barry William.

Chris: Look, the show wasn’t all that great, but Debra’s Time was amazing. They use it in like, every commercial.

Cecily: The holiday’s so numb

Chris: And Mark has come and gone

[Chris starts playing the piano louder]

Or have I?

Cecily: Mark? What are you doing here?
Chris: I came back for you.

Dan: What’s happening? Who is Mark?

Kenan: He’s involved with Debra, I guess.

Cecily: No, I can’t do this.

Chris: Debra, this could work. Just put your suitcase down.

Cecily: [singing] I’m not ready

Chris: Just hold steady

Chris and Cecily: Mark comes back and Debra’s cracking, smack!
