Episode cast overview:


It's a Monday in November, and a snowstorm is passing through Minneapolis. While the newsroom staff works on news stories about the weather, Sue Ann, who has just taped her Christmas special, invites the newsroom gang to join her that evening on her set to feast on her just prepared Christmas meal. They all decline as they all have other plans for the evening. By the time the newscast starts, Murray, Mary, Lou and Ted are all at each others' throats over an editorial issue with Murray's copy, and who is to blame for what happens as a result on the air. Murray threatens to quit over the issue. However, it's not like he can storm out of the office since they are all snowed in until the streets are cleared, which is forecast to be after midnight. As such, they all decide to join Sue Ann for her dinner, despite no one feeling in a festive Christmas mood. Written by Huggo
