In this episode, we meet Buzzie's very attractive little sister, Casey Watson, who works as a meteorologist in Seattle. We also learn that Buzz and Casey lost their father at a very young age.
Provenza: So, Buzzie, ah, why don't you introduce us to Casey?
Casey Watson: Oh, he doesn't need to! (walking up to each team member and shaking their hands as she speaks to them) you are Detective Sanchez, the one who threatens people. You are Lt. Tao of course and that's your bag of tricks. You are the very sharp-dressing Detective Gabriel! Hello.
Gabriel: Thank you.
Casey Watson: Judging by the cynical tone in your voice, you must be Andy Flynn. Hi! And that makes you the grumpy one, Lieutenant Provenza, hello!
Provenza: Grumpy? Well, when I'm being shot at maybe. But the rest of the time I'm just a cuddly teddy bear.
Casey Watson: Ohhh.
Buzz: Lieutenant, Casey's afraid of bears.
Fritz: You're supposed to be down at the attorney's office right now.
Brenda: Well, I don't know if you've heard, but somebody murdered Santa Claus.
Santa Jack: (being escorted by Lt. Flynn into through the offce) Jingle bells, jingle bells, everybody! Jingle all the way. Ho! Ho! Ho! Sorry I'm late. I was home, home wassailing. Come on, let's get some Christmas going here. Oh my Gosh, your Christmas tree, it's completely naked! You people need to deck these halls - pronto.
