(LAUGHS)

It's all right.

Maybe we'll find something when

we get back from San Antonio.

San Antonio?

Uh-huh. Thanksgiving

with your family.

We were there last month.

I know, but this month it's

Thanksgiving with your family.

So, now that there's a turkey on the

table, it's supposed to mean more?

My dad probably put the Christmas

decorations up already.

I did get a call

from your mom yesterday.

She'd really love for us

to think about Christmas.

Christmas, too?

You know, David talks

about it all the time.

I got a better idea.

What?

Cancun.

Again with Cancun?

If we order the tickets now

we get awesome rates

and it's awesome-ly fun,

come on.

- I just, I know...

- Think about it. Just think about it.

I know Christmas

is hard for you.

Sunshine. Beach.

Mmm-hmm. Mmm-hmm.

I know what you're waiting for.

What?

(IN SPANISH ACCENT) Massage.

No! Not in the

creepy voice!

- Massage.

- Not in the creepy voice.

Give me a massage, yeah.

Without the creepy voice.

Canc... Cancun.

No. (LAUGHS)

(IN SPANISH ACCENT) Where

you get good massage.

So, the ancient Greeks took the idea

of hospitality quite seriously.

It could mean the difference

between life and death.

For example...

When Paris...

Betrayed his host...

And took Helen back to Troy...

Professor Walker?

MICHAEL:
Mmm-hmm?

- One quick question?

- MICHAEL:
Go ahead.

So you're saying

what the Greeks did

is kind of like when

we celebrate Christmas?

(STUDENTS LAUGHING)

No, I'm saying just the

opposite as a matter of fact.

Personal gatherings

and celebrations

were powerful,

they were genuine.

They were very spiritual

for the ancient Greeks.

Just like Christmas for us now.

(STUDENTS LAUGH)

Um...

No, Christmas has become so

completely over-commercialized

that's it's really lost any...
