At Jack’s home in Beverly Hills, he is joined by Mary as he trims the tree. The tree is looking good, but Jack keeps getting himself electrocuted. Rochester gets the party treats ready, but Jack gets his historic knowledge mixed up. (The history gag was a recent running gag on the show at the time). .
When a cop comes to the door, Jack has to explain his activity at the department store. In flashback mode, we get to eaves drop on the shopping trip. At least part of it. Phil’s band plays, It Had to Be You.
Gifts are placed under the tree as the tree trimming fun continues. Even so, Jack still manages to get a shock from time to time. Phil arrives to compare notes on Christmas trees, and do some gift swapping. When the rest of the cast show up, it’s time to get the party started. Even Andy Devine stops in.
The champagne flows freely as the cast share Christmas wishes. At this time, the war was still going on, and Jack shares a touching word for the troops. In the absence of Dennis Day who was in the Navy, Larry Stevens sings a medley of carols including, O Come All Ye Faithful, and Silent Night.
