The Christmas season has arrived, as has much activity. Two Marine MPs arrest a Navy woman petty officer who impersonates Santa Claus and steals money given to charity; Loren prosecutes, and Harm defends. The preliminary hearing is postponed until after Christmas, but the Navy has closed the empty brig, so Harm takes the defendant in his custody. The defendant stays with Mac, and she learns from several, including Chloe, who visits with Mac. Harm finishes rebuilding his Corvette, then it disappears again and soon reappears. Mikey receives word of his appointment to the US Naval Academy. Everyone gathers at the Roberts pad before going to the Christmas Eve worship at the chapel, where Sturgis's father, a retired Navy chaplain, not only preaches but hits the spot. Harm and Mac share a very friendly moment below the mistletoe, and Webb arranges for a huge surprise for Harm. Written by
