Seller's refrigerator is not included in the real property purchase agreement, but she decided to give it to me before closing of the transaction. But after closing and I moved in, something unhappy happened between us, so she changed her mind and wanted to take the fridge back. Do I have to return it to her?
it depends on the contract. In general once the transaction has closed it would be too late for her to change her mind. (unless you lied to her or tricked her for example). Even if not in the contract it may be considered a gift, if so you would not be obligated to return it. if it is not a valuable item I would at least consider returning it to keep the peace.
