Episode Recap

Joanie asks if she can have some of the Chipmunks over, but Howard wants it to be a family-only Christmas Eve. Chuck comes over to bring his laundry and leaves a sweatsock on the Christmas tree. Richie, Chuck, and Howard go out to the driveway and try and fix the mechanical Santa Claus.
At Arnold's, Fonzie comes and brings everyone presents. He gives Marsha a locket that says "You're the ginchiest." Potsie tries to invite Fonzie over for a Christmas turkey dinner, but Fonzie says he's planning a trip to visit family in Waukesha.
Howard and his employees have a party at Cunningham Hardware. Howard and Richie have car problems. Fonzie fixes their car and turns down their invitation to drive him to Waukesha. As Richie goes back to the garage to give Fonzie his present (a three-in-one wrench), he sees Fonzie sitting alone eating a sandwich and ravioli out of a can.
Howard and Chuck decorate the tree, and Richie mopes around thinking about Fonzie. Richie and Howard go over to Fonzie's apartment and try to convince him to come over to the house to fix the Santa. Fonzie is able to fix the Santa and the Christmas tree lights which were not working. At this point, Fonzie has "missed his bus," so he stays and pops some popcorn in the fireplace and reads The Night Before Christmas. Richie takes a picture of Howard with Chuck, and Joanie and Fonzie look at a Viewmaster. The family sits down to eat, and Fonzie says grace: "Hey God, thanks."
