Storyline

Claude Campbell, the hospital's janitor, is looking forward to play Santa Clause again, but Mark diagnoses him with terminal cancer. The preparations for Christmas festivities are difficult- Jesse bitches about the commercial side and social pressure, even more after someone breaks his car window and steals all his presents, but finally volunteers BBQ Bob's for a homeless dinner; Mark can't find any good voices for a barber shop quartet. Trying to get Claude eligible for assistance, Steve discovers his identity is false, he's actually Andrew Basevich, an escaped Missouri convict condemned for murdering his wife Sharon; he admits but claims he was innocent, which hypnotic regression seems to confirm. When a sheriff's deputy turns up for his extradition, Mark emotionally blackmails Steve to go investigate in St. Louis, decades late but against the clock. Even when he finds proof, the legal proceedings seem unstoppable until after Claudes six months prognosis expires... Written by KGF Vissers
