Sam receives a phone message from Richard in Randy's office, who informs him that a box company that he invested in had burned down and that he has received an insurance payout, later than his settlement with Oceanic Airlines, and to call him back to decide what to do with the funds.
Hey Sam, it's Richard. Ah, Randy asked me to call. You're a hard man to track down these days. Now listen, I've got some good news.

Sam also inquires as to whether she was able to get in contact with his mother. Tracey replies that she did get in contact with her, and that she will be visiting her on Christmas day.
Thanks for the holiday tip but I don't reckon I'll follow it up. To be honest, being all the way out here has made me a bit homesick. Speaking of which - did you get onto mum? Is she still speaking to me?
I called your mum. She was relieved to hear you were OK. You're right - she's a worrier these days but she means well. She's invited me around for Christmas day. I can't resist her homemade rumballs so I said yes. You're going to owe her a very big Christmas present when you get back (and me too for that matter
