Geraldine is so popular that everybody wants her round for Christmas dinner so she won't be alone - Jim and Frank, Alice and her family,who are even more bizarre than Alice herself and the Hortons. Geraldine is protective of Hugo when David bullies him and indulges in a sprout-eating contest. As a consequence she has to be taken home on a bulldozer to sleep it off. And then Owen turns up wanting company since he has spent every Christmas alone since 1971.

What you looking forward to more than anything else at Christmas this year?
Well, my highlights are going to be Jurassic Park and the Queen's speech, written this year by Ruby Wax, I believe. And what about you?
I'm totally excited about your first Christmas sermon; it, it's just going to be an experience I'll never forget.
Alice, my *first* Christmas sermon was last Christmas.
Oh, yeah, I forgot.
