Episode cast overview:
Charlie (voice)


Mary is planning on making the long drive back to her home town on Christmas Eve so that she can spend Christmas Day with her mother and father. She is thus dismayed to learn from Lou that she is scheduled to work on Christmas Day this year. In light of this information, she is determined to make Christmas Eve her special day, which she plans on spending with Rhoda. But even those plans hit a snag when she speaks to her co-worker, Fred, who is supposed to work the night shift alone on Christmas Eve and who hasn't spent Christmas with his family in years. Feeling sorry for him, Mary agrees to work his Christmas Eve shift for him. Can anything salvage this holiday season for Mary? Written by Huggo
