As Sade darns a sock, and Rush lounges in the floor, they talk about Christmas presents. Rush is afraid that he won’t get as many gifts as his friend Smelly Clark. Rush tells about Smelly’s idea to get gifts from friends and family with a letter writing campaign. Why, of course Rush would never stoop so low as such a thing, and Sade thinks it’s a terrible idea. Still, Rush goes into great detail about the letters that Smelly is mass mailing in hopes of getting at least a few results.
Besides the letter writing blitz that resembles a modern day email spammer, Rush describes a few other tricks Smelly has for boosting his Christmas morning bounty. Some of the complimentary behavior being more successful than others. Vic is absent from the episode, but when the phone rings, Sade explains that the big muckety muck is at a big lodge meeting.
