  • Quotes

    • Sam: Hey Carla. I got a present for Rebecca.
      Carla: I see you picked up a little package for yourself, too.
      Sam: Hey, why not? I've been a good boy, and it's just what I asked for.

    • Carla: Ah, well don't feel bad Sam. Just because everybody else got her something. The pretzel salesman, the beer distributor, the relief bartender, the guy she fired after one day.
      Sam: Yeah, yeah. Wait a minute though. All those guys were just trying to get her into the sack.
      Carla gives Sam a stare.
      Sam: I've got some shopping to do!!

  • Notes

    • This is the first episode that Woody does the "Cheers is filmed before a live studio audience" announcement at the start of the episode.

  • Allusions

    • When it cuts to credits, Woody says, "God bless us, everyone." This is a reference to the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol, first published in 1843. This was, of course, Tiny Tim's line.

    • In the teaser scene, the movie It's a Wonderful Life is playing on the TV. This movie was released in 1946. It starred James Stewart and has become such a classic that it's traditionally shown every December as a television event for the whole family.
