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
