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
