Quotes

Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: Stan, do you remember the Christmas we were so broke, you convinced the kids that Christmas was actually the 26th? You went out and got a Christmas tree from somebody's garbage and you trimmed it with gum wrappers and pull tabs. Then you turned on Jim Thorpe, All American and told them it was King of Kings.
Stan Zbornak: And they believed it too.
Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: Right up until Jesus got His medals taken away for playing professional baseball.
Stan Zbornak: Yeah, kind of got to be a tradition for us.

Have Yourself a Very Little Christmas (#5.12)
14 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is a hot Christmas and girls don't want to shop much so they just draw each others names of a hat and buy one present. After exchanging gifts they go to volunteer at a homeless shelter. And they meet Stan there because his wife threw him out, Dorothy tries to motivate him and it is successful.

I like the gifts part. Was very funny how they were dreading who will get Rose's gift, although she ended up doing well, and it had a lot of funny lines.

The shelter part was good to remind people of people who need help. I was just irritated by the constant "especially children". As if children are the ones who everyone should care about the most. People already do that, most help children over really suffering people.
