Storyline

Earl, Randy and Catalina enter a contest to win a brand new car. Earl ruined several Christmases for Joy and now he wants to make up for them all at once by giving her this car. Earl is out of the contest very quickly but Randy and Catalina can still win. While Randy and Cataline are doing their best to win the car, Earl goes to Joy to ask her what color the new bikes he'll get her two kids should be (he once ruined their brand new Christmas bikes the evening before Christmas). Unbeknown to Earl, Joy's parents are over for a Christmas visit and, even more unbeknown to Earl, Joy never told them she and Earl have divorced and that she's now married to a black guy. She therefore pretends Earl is still her husband and, because he doesn't want to ruin yet another Christmas for Joy, Earl plays along. It turns out Joy isn't the only one who keeps a secret: Her mother has one as well and Earl finds out about it. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Earl: [voiceover] That's when I realised we might be too drunk to drive, but, we weren't too drunk to pedal. Although I learned a valuable lesson that night: if ...
