Storyline

Jimmy refuses to let Burt sell the last of the stock of hottest toy he arranges each Christmas, demanding it for Hope, remembering how hard it was to sit by the pile himself. Burt's promise is as worthless as ever, and when he finally agrees, the only childless client, supermarket executive Barney, proves a hard nut. Jimmy ultimately allows Virginia to sign up Hope, and thus all the Chances, for the annual live church nativity crib, despite his trauma having been dragged to every performance just so she could get on stage, as a way to fight the stigma of serial killer's child. However they didn't count on the Asian new parishioners. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Burt is told near the beginning of the episode that if his mother-in-law were to die before the end of the year he wouldn't owe any estate taxes. While it is true that the estate tax was repealed in 2010 and therefore would have no affect, in 2009 estate taxes were only due on estates totaling more than $3.5 million and in 2011 for those totaling over $5.0 million. It is highly unlikely that Maw-Maw's estate would reach these amounts so no tax would be due regardless. See more »
