Episode Summary

EDIT
Jack Goes Christmas Shopping
AIRED:
Jack and Rochester go Christmas shopping in a department store. Jack harasses clerk Mel Blanc, repeatedly have him re-wrap the gift he bought for Don because he wants to change the card inside. Dennis Day sings "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer". Don, dressed as a kid, sits on Santa's lap to do the State Farm commercial. Jack has several arguments with surly floorwalker Frank Nelson, especially after smashing a new watch with a hammer. He buys lingerie from a clerk too unnerved by nighties to touch them with his bare hands. After going back to make changes on Don's gift one too many times, Blanc, now a wreck, loads a pistol and shoots himself.moreless
