For Fred, Christmas is about enjoying good food, presents and family. But for Emma, Christmas is about taking care of people in need. She misses her parents and their traditions, so Fred suggests she goes to Canada. Emma asks Fred to join her, but the mothers of his daughters refuse to let them go at short notice. Fred says he will go with Emma no matter what, so Vic, Romy and Clara plot to stop them leaving! And it's a good thing they do, as surprise guests will be arriving.
