- Candles and carols

And Christmas with you

I'll bring the chocolate

Won't you bring some too?

We'll have sleigh rides

and yuletides

And Christmases white

With candles

And carols tonight

When it's snowing

and blowing

And freezing outside

Bundle up, my darling

Let's go for a ride

There'll be shopping

and stopping

Till nighttime,

and then

It's candles

And carols again

Oh, the fire

Burns brighter each year

Let the love light shine

Hang some mistletoe

And move closer, dear

Christmas kisses

so delicious

Think I'll have another

With my reindeer

and good cheer

And Christmases white

Candles and carols tonight


- Hi. Hi.

- Hey, guys.

It's cold, come on in...

Thank you for coming. Hi.


- How many at DiNova's?

- Two. Including Mr. Finch.

- Al Finch?

- Mm-hmm.

- Huh, he was at the poker game

the other night.

- Oh, yeah? How much did he

take you for?

- What makes you think

I lost?

- Uh, because you played,


Come on, how much?

Eighty bucks?

- Ha! Shows all you know.

Eighty-five, yeah.

So next time,

don't be so smug.

[phone rings]

- Forrester Toys,

where you can pre-order

the all new Princess Alicia

doll and snow castle.

This is Connie speaking.

How may I help you?

No, ma'am.

We won't have the Alicia dolls

until the 12th.

Yes, I'm pretty sure DiNova's

will tell you the same thing.

No, I don't have

their number.

Yes, I believe it's spelled


V, as in "Victory."

Okay. Bye-bye.

Good luck.

Paula, let me get you

that chess set.

[phone rings]

- DiNova Toys,

where you can pre-order

the all new Princess Alicia

doll and snow castle.

This is Will speaking.

How may I help you?

No, ma'am.

Not until the 12th.

Uh-huh. Thank you.

- It's a quad copter.

Great for the indoors,

but I would definitely keep

my Ming vases out of the way.

They're right there

on the shelf.

- Connie, you've got

to help me.

I need a toy

for my boss's daughter.

- What age?

- 7 1/2.

- My Little Pony

Magical Princess.

Twilight Sparkle.

Aisle 2.

- You sure she'll like it?

- You might just make partner.

Oh, hi.

What's your name?

- Eleanor.

- Hi, Eleanor.

You look like a seasoned pilot.

You want to take the controls?

There you go.

Ah, you're doing great.

Just don't lose

the luggage.

- Hi.

- Hey.

- My son's looking for

a skateboard for Christmas,

and I heard about this one

brand, called the Hurricane.

- We carry the Thrasher.

You know it?

Oh, it's a great board.

- Um...

would Forrester's

have the Hurricane?

- They might.

Let's find out.

Just make you get

a top-of-the-line helmet

to go with it,

then your boy should be fine.

- Why would I need

a top-of-the-line helmet?

- Min, where do we keep

that number for Forrester's?

- Why would I need

a top-of-the-line helmet?

- Well, I'm sure you heard

about the recall.

I got it, Min.

We're good.

- What recall?

- Hmm?

- What recall?

- Oh, sometimes the wheels

fly off at high speed.

No big deal.

Hello, Forrester's...?

- Uh, hold it.

Tell me more

about the Thrasher.

- Pie Face.

Is this a game I could play

with my family?

- I've never met

your family, ma'am.

- Randy, I'll take this.

Actually, Pie Face

is a great family game,

and the more people

that play it, the better.

- But are the rules


- No, ma'am not at all.

Very simple.

Just don't forget to pick up

whipped cream on your way home.


- She was asking

good questions, huh?

- Greg, if you're

thinking about

getting that

for your grandson,

you already got him the same

truck for his birthday.

- I did?

- Same color and everything.

- Any other ideas?

- Three words:

LED hand spinner.

Aisle 5.

- He will not be bored.

- Thanks.

- [chuckles]

Hey, sweetie.

How was school?

- Okay.

- Not very convincing, kiddo.

Can you hand me

that penguin, please?

- What's up?

- Marshall Booter.

He says he's sure his bobsled's

going to win this year.

- And what do you say?

- That he's right.

It wins every year.

- Do I have to remind you

that the Cubs won

the World Series last year?

So anything can happen.


- Greetings and salutations.

- Hi, Nana.

- Hi, honey.

- Hey, Mom.

How was the crowd

over at DiNova's?

- No comment.

- Mom!

- Connie, I refuse to feed

this ridiculous obsession

of yours.

- You're not feeding it.

You're just snacking

between meals.

Come on,

talk to me.

- Maybe half this size.

- Yes!

Can I get an amen?

- That is not very neighborly.

Don't encourage her.

- Hey, listen, I have been

swamped with the store.

I don't think I'll be able

to cook dinner tonight.

- I can't either.

Takeout from Joe's?

- Perfect.

- Roast beef and mash?

- With extra gravy.

And pecan pie.

- Forget the pie, kiddo.

We've got ice cream.

And remember,

we are on a budget.

- Okay, I'm on it.

- You want to throw your stuff

in the back and help me?

- Four letters.

A watery conveyance.

Ends with a K.

- Bark.

- [chuckles]

That's what my dog said.

- It's also a boat.

Hath not their bark

been very slow in sail.

- Game of Thrones?

- [laughs]

A Comedy of Errors.

Mr. Shakespeare.

- Hey, it fits.

- Yeah.

- You go to Harvard

or something?

- Morristown High.

You don't need Harvard, Ed.

You just need a library card.

- I am late.

I will see you later, Joe.

- Okay, pal.

- Oh, hey, Pam.

- Hi, Ed.

- Have a good night.
