Storyline

C.J. takes a close interest in Becker's case involving a custody suit of her former lover, Maggie Barnes, whose past lesbian love affair with C.J. has threatened to take Maggie's children away and put them in the care of her ex-husband. Castroverde is fired for his unsatisfying work performance. Low staff morale makes it difficult for Brackman to organize the annual Christmas party, so Benny and Castroverde take over the chores and intend to go all out. Meanwhile, Kelsey fumes as Markowitz is forced to go out of town to miss their son's 2nd birthday party. Zoey and Rollins quarrel over their plans for the holidays. A holiday card from the late Rosalind Shays brings a form of relief for both McKenzie and Grace. Also, a mentally unbalanced temp office worker, named Betty, drives everyone to distraction.

Quotes

[Leland has received a Christmas card from Rosalind Shays, six months after her fatal accident]
Leland McKenzie: Look at this. A Christmas card from Rosalind.
Grace Van Owen: You know, Leland; she probably had them sent out by a service and no one thought to notify them that she was dead.
Leland McKenzie: I guess you're right; a Christmas card from the grave.
[starts laughing]
Grace Van Owen: One thing you can say about Rosalind, she sure knew how to network.
[Continues laughing]
