[everyone is seeing North Pole City]
Claudia: If this is a practical joke, we're in big trouble.
David: I know mom, I know.
[everyone is riding in the reindeer zephyr]
C.B.: Wow this is really great!
Marianne: [terrified] Mom, I'm scared!
Marianne: [to Michael and Claudia] C.B.'s done it again he gave Kurt Larson the biggest black eye you ever saw.
C.B.: He started it, he called me a liar!
David: [about going to meet Santa Claus] We'll all meet a big white rabbit and go to the mad hatter tea party.
[C.B. lashes out at Claudia about telling him there's no Santa Claus]
C.B.: You just ruined everything! I hate you mom I wish you were dead!
Michael: Don't you dare talk to your mother that way! Now, go to your room!
C.B.: That's all you ever say to me "go to your room!" I hate you too dad! I really hate you!
Santa Claus: [to the elves] I'm going to tell you one more time. Sing anything you want. White Christmas, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. But no more Jingle Bells!
C.B.: Dad please listen to me! I promise to never to ask you for anything ever again! I promise, I promise! Please listen to me!
Michael: I guess I haven't listened to much, haven't I?
C.B.: No dad!
Michael: Alright, I'm listening.
C.B.: If you would believe in Santa Claus, you'd be right too. In rescuing Mom, David, and Marianne. What if there in North Pole city when you dynamite Site B?
Michael: O.K. I'll cancel the dynamite until we take another look up there.
Claudia: I'm really worried David. Do you really think we're going a hundred miles per hour?
David: Of course not, it's an illusion. We're probably not going 20 miles per hour.
Claudia: Well we seem to be going pretty fast.
David: I know...
[matter of factly]
David: there's an increased perception of velocity at both the Arctic and Antarctic regions.
Claudia: If you say so
[looks at David in confusion]
Sumner Murdock: [Sumner is now changed and being happy] Congratulations, Michael. You're in for a big promotion. You're going get a bigger house, you're going get a big bonus.
Michael: Thanks, but you can keep the promotion.
Sumner Murdock: Oh, no, no. Listen, Michael, you deserve it, kid. You deserve it.
Michael: I know I do. But you can consider this my resignation.
Sumner Murdock: Oh, no. You're going to think differently about it in the morning. I'll talk to you then, huh?
Michael: We're all going back to Los Angeles permanently next week.
Sumner Murdock: [Here at the fireplace, sitting there, Michael is have a drink for a while. Knocking on the door. Michael heads to the door and open is Mr. Murdock] Are you still working for me?
Sumner Murdock: Didn't you get my message?
Michael: I did. I thought it could wait till morning. Anyway, I didn't want to leave my son alone.
Sumner Murdock: Look, I know what you're going through, but back off, kid, will ya, please? I've got problems of my own. I'm flying out of here tomorrow to meet Mr. Idiot Fred Haley on that Kenya mess. I'll be back late tomorrow night. I want to know right now, just how long do you plan on going on with the search?
Michael: Until I know one way or the other.
Sumner Murdock: 50 men on my payroll until you know one way or the other. You've got 'til tomorrow, and that's it.
Michael: Sumner... You don't take any responsibility for all this, do you? C.B. is right. You were too tough on Claudia.
Sumner Murdock: What are you talking about?
Michael: You know what I'm talking about! You were too tough on her!
Sumner Murdock: Realistic, not tough. Just as realistic as you were. Now I mean it, kid. You've got till the end of the day tomorrow. Period.
