Heston and Marina are making two kinds of Christmas biscuits. Marina unknowingly adds a tablespoon of white pepper into her mix rather a teaspoon. When they taste the biscuits, Heston lies that Marina’s taste delicious which almost sends her into a rage, but she calms down.
Later, as they decorate the tree, Marina takes out a delicate bauble and tells Heston how precious it is to her. But disaster strikes when Heston drops the precious bauble and accidentally crushes it underfoot.
Marina sees this and charges at him. Heston is left unconscious and bleeding, having fallen and hit his head on a cast iron tree stand. He lays there, as snow from the indoor snow machine starts to fall onto his head.
