Richard's Opening Monologue
Richard: It starts the day after Halloween and its starts in the malls. Christmas Carols 24 hours a day. And then outcomes the Visa card, and you have one more chance to get it right. One more chance to have a perfect Christmas. You know the perfect Christmas? Like the ones on tv?
