Episode cast overview, first billed only:


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

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.

Finally working as it should
22 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've stuck with this show because I loved the West Wing and kept wanting a replacement. This episode finally pulled all the pieces together into what we came to expect from these actors and writers. The comic banter sets the pulse of the show and the dramatic punches, even when expected, were truly punches. It could have gone either way with the chairman and they could have dragged out the romantic links for way too long but they didn't. The tribute to New Orleans was well set up and executed - brought me to tears. I can't wait for the second half of this season. If you gave up on this show early on, give it another try. You might have to review a few episodes to catch up but it's worth it. PLEASE keep up the good work and keep improving.
