Tonight I give the Christmas angels
Forgot about you? Oh, no, Gideon.
I have a very difficult case
for you this year.
Her name is Ginnie Grainger.
She never even says "Merry Christmas. "
Yeah, I know. Where will I find her?
In a town to the north, called Medford.
in a shopping mall.
Medford, north, in a shopping mall.
Mom, why can't I go see Santa Claus?
- Because I say so, that's why.
- Come on, Ginnie, let her. It's only $4.50.
I have to work over an hour
to make four and a half dollars.
You get a job,
you can take her to see Santa Claus.
- Please, Mom. Please!
Abbie, you are going to get a smack
in a minute, and I mean it.
We came here to get socks and stuff,
and that's it.
It's OK, honey. You don't want to see
He's not the real Santa Claus, is he, Cal?
No, the real Santa Claus
is up at the North Pole.
This guy's just like,
you know, Santa Claus's helper.
If I don't even see Santa Claus's helper,
what I want for Christmas?
Santa Claus! Abbie, for Pete's sake,
that the only real Santa Claus
is the one at the North Pole.
- I'm six. I already knew that.
- Can we have an ice cream, Daddy?
and a toy oven that really bakes.
- Just put it all in the letter to Santa.
- OK, Dad.
I want a Swatch watch, too.
Forget it. You're not getting all those
things. We can't afford a big Christmas.
Hey, old Santa
He might not even be able
to get to some of the poor kids.
- Like Molly Monaghan?
- Like Molly Monaghan.
- Don't get jelly on your jacket.
I did not, jelly face.
One of these days, Abbie. To the moon!
- Hey, Dave.
- Hi, Jack.
- Who's that, Dad?
- That's Dave Gilchrist.
He used to work with me
over at Continental. Continental Radio.
by that dork, Frank Crump.
A long, long time ago.
- Hey, not that long ago. July.
And Continental's making us move out.
Yep. Yep, it's a company house.
It's their house.
Oh, look, Cal.
Our snowman fell over again.
Where are you going?
Down the basement. Work on those bikes
for the neighbour kids.
Jack, we're moving in only ten days.
We gotta start
getting some of the packing done.
Come on, Ginnie, just give me
half an hour, 45 minutes.
myself on my one morning off from work?
and then I'll give you a hand.
Can you believe
that weather we're having? Huh?
Do you think
I hope not.
- Working on the bikes?
Well, I don't know.
- Oh, brother! Go on down there.
- Thanks a lot, honey. You won't be sorry.
- I'm already sorry.
It's time to finish the great
Jack Grainger special, huh?
But if I can sneak a few more hours' work
High speed, very low energy input.
Jack, this could be
some kind of breakthrough.
- You could make a mint on a bike like this.
