Uncle Ernie died and bequeathed Bob a storage unit. Before the mall, Uncle Ernie owned Lombard's Department Store. In the storage unit, the Belchers find Chet, a former fixture at Lombard's. In the spirit of Christmas, Bob invites Chet to stay in their basement. Chet does what he knows best to repay their hospitality. Nobody sells an antique watch or cuts their beautiful hair, but the three Belcher Magi embody the spirit of O. Henry; their sacrifice makes a very Merry Christmas for all. Written by LA-Lawyer

Bob's Burgers God Rest Ye Merry Gentle-Mannequins
18 December 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Linda loves decorating for Christmas but all the kids care about is getting presents. Bob gets a letter from a lawyer that he has become an eyer to one of his dead uncle's. The family decide to read the letter together but Linda decides to read it. Bob finds out that the letter is not about money but a storage unit that was left for them. When they open the unit they find a strange man in the unit. They have to take him in because they cannot afford the unit. The next day Chad made a display that goes in front of the store including chad as one of the statues. After the day goes well everyone wants to get involved in the new display for the next couple of days. The kids get involved and the display changes everyday. After some days the window gets on the news. Just before Chritsmas Eve Chad seems distant as he thinks about his ex wife. He shows a wooden mannequin that was his wife also saying he was a wooden mannequin that came back to life. Bob worries Chad might hurt them but he then tells them the story of him with Nadine. He says the pain of losing her turned him into a human. Bob questions the story but everyone believes it to be true. Everyone wants to believe the story but Bob makes him cry getting Linda angry at him. Christmas Eve Morning and the new window display looks very scary and not like Christmas at all. The family go and search for the mannequin and end up finding her. Bob then has to go get Nadine to save the shop. Linda then must distract the viewers by saying her own poem.Everyone then runs away with the mannequin. Just when the windows display goes well they have to but the mannequin and the kids are not able to buy there presents because they gave them up for Nadine. Funny episode especially they way Bob did not believe the story like he would.
