Storyline

It's the Christmas season. Frasier is in a anti-Christmas bah-humbug mood much to Lilith's chagrin. Norm has a part-time job he fails to mention. And Cliff is collecting food for the needy all in an effort to win a trip to Disney World. Rebecca has Carla, Woody and Sam all working Christmas Eve as will she. Carla doesn't mind the extra money. Woody isn't going back to Hanover so he doesn't mind. But Sam hates working what he considers the holiday. When it's close to closing time on Christmas Eve, Carla, Woody and Sam decide to exchange their gifts with each other. That's when Sam learns that everyone seems to have a present for Rebecca - which he doesn't - and in turn Rebecca has a gift for everyone. In a panic, Sam rushes out trying to find somewhere - anywhere - that is still open so he can get a gift for her. The second problem may be to find something appropriate, which strikes that perfect balance of being not too expensive but still saying "I want to sleep with you". He may get ... Written by Huggo

Christmas Cheers (#6.12)
2 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is Christmas! And Rebecca makes them work on Christmas Eve until the last customer leaves. Sam also finds out that Rebecca got them gifts and everyone else got gift for her as well. So he rushes out to find something but all stores are closed. Yet an angel in form of stewardess comes and gives them some stuff she bought.

Well it is a Christmas episode. It is made to create a Christmas spirit in us, even in the worst cynics, represented by Frasier in this episode. So it isn't all too funny. The scene with Santa in the end was all cheesy only luckily unlike in many other sitcoms we see that this is not a real Santa. And they used my least favorite Christmas movie to evoke Christmas spirit in the gang. Please, if I roll eyes whenever I watch it I doubt it would make someone like Carla cry!
