Episode complete credited cast:
Steve (as Duke Moosekian)


To the staff's surprise, Dave says they are allowed to leave early for Christmas but only if they have finished all their work first. Bill takes Beth along to read opposite him for a garage door-opener commercial. The sound guy decides to use Beth instead of Bill so Bill tells Beth to read poorly for it so they will hire him. With her repeated botched takes, Beth loses her voice forcing Bill to reveal a creepy secret talent to resolve the problem. Meanwhile each staff member pawns their work off on Dave one by one so they can each leave early, leaving Dave stuck at the station delaying Lisa and Dave's departure time to Wisconsin. Lisa is nervous about meeting Dave's parents for the first time but her worrying turns out to be for nothing. Written by Novotny
