Storyline

As the CDU (Christmas Display Unit) has proved both inappropriate and dysfunctional, Mr.Grace has offered 50 pounds to the member of staff who can portray a more friendly Father Christmas. All the men on the floor are eager to try out,and so are the women, feeling that they should be given an equal chance. Meanwhile Mr.Humphries and Mr.Lucas teach Mr.Grainger a dance number for him to preform while miming to a song for the old folks. Written by Nadia Nassar

Quotes

Mr. Cuthbert Rumbold: [Mrs. Slocombe is dressed as Father Christmas] What are you playing at, Mrs. Slocombe?
Mrs. Betty Slocombe: I'm not playing at nothing! Only I would ask you to remember that Parliament has passed the Sexual Relations Act, which states that women are just as good at it as men! And, what's more, they should be paid the same for doing it!
Captain Stephen Peacock: What exactly are you suggesting, Mrs. Slocombe?
Mrs. Betty Slocombe: That I should be allowed to have a go at Father Christmas.
