Christmas Break is the 12th episode of the seventh season, and 151st overall.


Grace attends a holiday party at Will's mother Marilyn's home and accidentally breaks a treasured Lladro figurine. Will convinces Grace not to tell his mother and to blame the accident on one of the other guests at the party. Elsewhere, Karen's stepdaughter, Olivia, comes to stay for the Christmas holiday and Karen pawns her off on Jack, who fits right in with the teenage girl and her friends.
