Storyline

Upset with his children's materialistic approach to the holiday season, Jim insists the family drive to the mountains to chop down the family Christmas tree. Jim's wish for a simple family Christmas becomes an unfortunate reality when their car gets stuck in a snow drift far from nearest phone. The Anderson family takes refuge in a mountain lodge closed for the season and are befriended by a man, apparently the caretaker, who teaches the Anderson children the delights of a simple holiday.

Kathy 'Kitten' Anderson: Honest?

Kathy 'Kitten' Anderson: Are you a boy scout, too?
Nick: Tonight, Kathy, I'm everybody.
Kathy 'Kitten' Anderson: Huh?
