[at FentonWorks]

Ghost Writer: But Danny's grim yuletide was only beginning. / And later that night, as his patience was thinning...

Jack Fenton: [slides down the chimney] See! A fat man can fit down the chimney! Here's proof!

Maddie Fenton: That still won't explain how he gets on the roof!

Ghost Writer: And Young Fenton sat there, just steaming and fuming...

[Danny looks out the window]

Ghost Writer: His blood pressure rising, his anger consuming...

Danny Fenton: [shouts] I won't keep this up!

Ghost Writer: ...Danny said to the Writer.

Danny Fenton: There's no poem if I'm silent.

Jazz Fenton: Can't you make Dad not fight her?

[Danny screams in frustration]

Ghost Writer: [to Danny] You think this is over? It's barely begun! / This psalm doesn't end 'til the lesson is done!

Danny Fenton: And you think that I'll learn it? You think you're that tough?

[sees his parents arguing]

Jack Fenton: [shouts] He exists!

Maddie Fenton: [shouts] No he doesn't!

Ghost Writer: Then Dan screamed:

Danny Fenton: Enough! / I'm sick of your fighting! Can you please let this die? / You've ruined each Christmas! Each Christmas, and I / Can't take anymore of this war, am I clear? / Fourteen years is enough! I am so out of here!

[walks out the door]

Maddie Fenton: Hmm? What's got into him?

Jack Fenton: He takes after his mother.

Jazz Fenton: [sees Danny outside the window] Can't blame you for losing your cool, little brother. / Go ahead, clear your head, and I think you'll be fine.

[the Ghost Writer sends the Fenton Family's presents to attack Danny; Jazz sees them following him]

Jazz Fenton: [angrily] ... but taking our presents is crossing the line!

Ghost Writer: Skulker said with a grin.

The Box Ghost: Now our holiday party can finally begin!

[the spotlights come on and illuminate two Christmas trees to Danny's surprise]

Skulker: Eat, drink, and be merry!

Ember: Have some warm Christmas goose!

The Box Ghost: For surely you know of our annual truce!

Ghost Writer: [shocked] The truce! It's still holding? I thought they'd suspend it / To beat on their foe!

Skulker: Oh, this truce, we defend it!

[Danny Phantom is surrounded by presents that Ghost Writer conjured up]

Danny Phantom: Now you're ripping off gifts? What is that supposed to do?

Ghost Writer: A. Make a huge scene, and B. blame it on you!

Maddie Fenton: [shouts] You've ruined our night!

Jack Fenton: [firing a blast] Drink some anti-ghost tonic!

[Danny's mouth goes intangible to avoid the blast]

Danny Phantom: Wait, I've ruined their night? How's that for ironic?

[he flies away from the crowd]

Ghost Writer: So Danny did soar through the crisp evening...

Danny Phantom: [to Ghost Writer] Look! / What's a guy got to do to get out of this book?

Danny Phantom: Wait. My problem is clear. / This poem's about Christmas, which is here, here, and here. / This curse will stay on me from my town to Rome. / But he can't Christmas me in a non-Christmas home.

[Danny fights off the monster nutcracker using the ghost blasts]

Danny Phantom: You think this can stop me? This bear, or this train? / I'll just fire away 'til no pieces remain!

[he destroys the nutcracker, then flies back on the ground]

Danny Phantom: Nothing to add?

Ghost Writer: Danny asked. Then the answer / Showed up in the form of Sam, Tucker, and Lancer, / And Jazz standing silent, her eyes filled with tears, / Mourning the bear she had loved all these years. / And Tucker and Sam felt that crushing blow, too.

[Danny tries to console the group]

Tucker Foley: Danny, don't!

Samantha "Sam" Manson: What's your deal?

Jazz Fenton: I don't even know you.

[they walk away from the crowd, who gathers up in sadness and anger]

Ghost Writer: It seemed that the whole town was left to proclaim / That Christmas was ruined, the Ghost Boy to blame.

[Danny flies away from the angry crowd and stops at a house]

Ghost Writer: Save for one little boy, in his little red hat. / He thought Danny was cool... so we'll have to fix that!

[he brings the ghost Christmas trees to life and they attack]
