    In the middle of his living room, Drew's ironing and dancing. He stops to answer the door when Lisa comes over. Drew warns her about being there since he doesn't want the two of them to be caught together because of the policy at work. She brought over a few things for him. They go into the kitchen and talk about their relationship. After giving up with trying to get Drew to go public with the relationship, Lisa's on her way out, but stops kisses Drew and then realizes Kate is watching them through the window. Drew walks over and realizes she's not alone. Lewis, Oswald, and Jules are all out there.



    At Winfred-Louder, Mimi asks everyone to pick a name for the Secret Santa program. It seems Mimi rigged the program since Kate and Drew both got her name. Lewis and Oswald walk in with a list for Drew. They want Drew to buy all of the things on the list with his employee discount. They move their discussion to who Drew's going to take for his date, since he can't take Kate or Lisa. Mimi comes in and tells Drew that Mrs. Louder wants to meet with him tomorrow.



    At home, in the middle of the night, Drew grabs a pizza and sits down at the kitchen table. He begins eating it when he's startled by a bright light from the neighbors. He walks over and yells at Jules for all of the bright Christmas lights, and asks him to turn them off so he can get some sleep. Jules promises he'll turn them off for the night, as Drew's got a big meeting in the morning.



    The next day, Kate walks Drew into the Winfred-Louder executive dining room. Kate tries to give him some advice for what to talk to Mrs. Louder about and then leaves. Drew walks over to meet Mrs. Louder, and she compliments him on his look, and he returns the compliment. Drew offers her his jacket when it seems she is cold. Drew finally admits he's nervous about being there, so she tells him she is offering him a promotion, however it's not the promotion he wants. Drew wants to be the Head of Personnel, but the offer is to be her personal assistant.



    Drew arrives home, along with Lewis and Oswald, and notices Jules has turned his backyard into a madhouse. The neighborhood kids and adults, and even a sheep are in his backyard, all trying to look at the Christmas lights Jules has set up. Drew threatens to turn on the sprinklers, which causes everyone to leave. Drew, Lewis, and Oswald go inside and Drew answers the front door when Kate comes over. Drew tells everyone about the promotion Mrs. Louder is offering. Jules then comes over with a package for him. It seems Mrs. Louder sent over an expensive pen for him.



    At the Winfred-Louder Christmas Party, Lewis, Kate, and Oswald seem to be having a good time. Drew and Mrs. Louder come over and she sits in Drew's chair. Mimi comes over with a present for Drew, but she has to take it back when she realizes he's Mrs. Louder's new personal assistant. Mimi walks away, and Mrs. Louder has to leave since the board is exchanging gifts. Lisa comes in and Drew kisses her under a piece of mistle toe. They talk about going into one of the rooms and having sex, and decide to go and do it. Mrs. Louder comes in and asks about where Drew is, as she needs him to pick up a few things from her car. She tells Kate, Lewis, and Oswald about the free cabs outside, and Oswald thanks her for the generocity. After Mimi thinks she saw Drew in Mr. Bell's office, she tells Mrs. Louder that Drew is in Mr. Bell's office. Mrs. Louder goes in and finds Mr. Bell having sex with a woman. They leave to go talk, and end up going into the room Drew and Lisa are having sex in.



    A while later, Drew, Mimi, and Lisa are handing out gifts to children, as they're all being punished. Mimi reveals Drew was bumped back to his old position. Lisa comes over and plan on doing it again next year, just not in the same room.



    The show ends with Lewis, Oswald, and Kate in a cab, taking advantage of the free cabs Mrs. Louder offered. They're taking the long way home, through Chicago, and Kate's planning on going through Graceland.



    I enjoyed this episode, but I felt it could have been better. The minor plot with Jules and the Christmas lights was a bit silly and didn't add all that much humor to the show.moreless
