Storyline

Matt gets the Christmas Spirit (despite being Jewish). Jordan gets an OB exam. Jack gets upset over an FCC fine. Simon and Tom get pedantic about the origins of Christmas traditions, and take the writing staff with them. Cal gets coconuts. Harriet gets a major movie role and a kiss. Danny gets the courage to tell Jordan how he feels (Jordan gets a sandwich). Santa gets identified as a predator (sketch). Wilson gets what he's been waiting for all his life. New Orleans Jazz gets a few minutes of air time and a standing ovation. The viewers get a few laughs, a few tears, and a Merry Christmas. Written by norcekri

Goofs

During a meeting, writers are debunking various Christmas traditions and beliefs. One of the writers refers to the "Immaculate Conception" as being the same as the "virgin birth." The "Immaculate Conception" is Catholic dogma that refers to the conception of Mary, not Christ. It claims that Mary was conceived without "Original Sin" and has nothing to do with the virgin birth.

Best episode yet!
4 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Funny start, to a tear-jerking end!! LOVED the coconut killing the table scene, I laughed out loud both during the previews and the show itself!! And the whole jerk father thing, and who loves who, etc, a great thematic arc is developing. The NO musicians at the end was awesome and beautiful. I truly hope the musicians were actual NO refugees. We both nearly burst into tears at the "All I want for Christmas is my city back" banner. And will there be a TCA show? We love TCA (gag).... Many thanks to those who decided this show should be retained. It is inciteful and intelligent, which in Hollywood is a sure sign of impending cancellations!
