It's Christmas eve, and Clark's bonus finally arrives...a one year membership in the Jelly-of-the-Month Club. Clark goes berserk. Since Uncle Lewis burned down the Christmas tree while lighting his cigar, Clark grabs a chainsaw and cuts down a tree from the yard. As he finishes decorating it, a squirrel leaps out at him, causing his mother (Diane Ladd) to faint. The squirrel hides in the living room, and Clark decides to catch it by tossing his Santa jacket over it and hitting it in the head with a hammer. Ellen's mother (Doris Roberts) faints. Cousin Eddie's dog takes off after the squirrel, chasing it around the house, over the dining room table and knocking over the china cabinet until Clark opens the front door, and squirrel and dog go running out...right into Margo Chester (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), who goes home and smacks her husband. Meanwhile, Eddie has kidnapped Clark's boss, Mr Shirley (Brian Doyle-Murray), tied him up and put a big red bow on his chest. Mr Shirley is hopping mad, fires Clark, and vows to call the police and have Eddie arrested. Clark says that it was all his fault and apologizes for losing his temper. He explains how getting no bonus this year has been a big letdown. Mr Shirley apologizes for not telling him and offers him the same bonus he got last year plus 20%. Clark faints. Outside, police cars and a SWAT team have surrounded Clark's house, thanks to a phone call from Mrs Shirley (Natalija Nogulich). The SWAT team invades Clark's house until Mr Shirley says that it was all a mistake. Suddenly, Rocky (Cody Burger) and Ruby Sue (Ellen Hamilton Latzen) notice a light in the sky. As everyone stands out in the snow looking at the light, Uncle Lewis says that it's not a Christmas light but a fire at the sewage station. At that moment, Uncle Lewis tosses down his match, and the entire sewage system blows up. Aunt Bethany starts singing 'The Star-Spangled Banner'. The light in the sky becomes visible again. It's Santa's sleigh, and it's on fire. In the final scene, Clark and Ellen kiss, Clark sighs, and says, 'I did it.'
