Canada is straight ahead.

OK, boys, let's take her down.

Flaps up.

Beaks down. Stay on target.

Stay on target!

What kind of landing was that?

Any landing you can walk away from

is a good landing.

This is stupid, Marty.

Can't we just use the front door?

Come on. How hard can it be?

Melman, you're up!

- But I'm claustrophobic.

- Yeah?

Now, you can be Santa Claustrophobic.

Now, dive, fool, dive, dive, dive!


Guys? I'm stuck!

Hang in there, Melman!

I'm coming!

- Melman, I'm right here!

- I'm burning!

- You're not burning!

- Help!

Thank you.

Don't leave me!

Alex, you still have the present!

Dash away, boys. Dash away!

- What? No, wait!

- Hang on!

I got you, Melman!

Way to drop the ball, you hippie freak.

Me? Melman lost it in the chimney.

Calm down. It's a small town,

there's only a couple more houses.

- Let's not freak out.

- Oh, yeah?

Can we freak out now?!

OK, here's the plan.

We head to the nearest post office

and we just dump the gifts.

- That's a plan.

- I need stamps, anyway.

Skipper, get us

to the nearest post office.

In New York.

Well, looks like our coffee break.

Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh! Oh, my gosh!

Oh, my gosh! You're Santa's helpers!

This is amazing!

You're hairier than I thought.

But amazing! OK, calm down, Abby.


Namaste. Namaste.

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Oh, my gosh! I almost forgot!

I made you cookies.

This is the best Christmas ever.

Don't tell Santa I was up. Really.

OK, I'm going to bed now.

I can't go to sleep. No way I can go

to sleep. I just met Santa's helpers!

I think I broke my collarbone.

No! It's OK. Going to bed now.

Oh, my gosh! Oh, my gosh! Oh, my gosh!

New plan. We're not

going to the post office anymore.
