    It seems to me WAREHOUSE 13 have just done exactly the same as their sister show EUREKA an made a CHRISTMAS special which has no relation to the general storyline. It doesn't matter that Myka left in the previous episode, as in EUREKA the special contradicted a lot from the previous episode. Its just a stand alone feel good episode for Christmas time, you just have to forget the storyline arc in regular episodes and enjoy the special. If you also watch EUREKA this wouldnt feel out of place to you, if you dont watch it you should there is even a crossover both ways.moreless
  • WTF ...Myka's Back?

    I agree with Alvin BUT I guess its like the warehouse itself......A mysterious episode from nowhere........... None of it makes any sense........Did the writers come in contact with an artifact? Lose time? once again........WTF
  • This is a nice touch, for ending the season with a cheery note. But I can't seem to find the link between episode 13 and 12. Myka left, seemingly for good in 12, and now suddenly, she's back. And where did Josh appear from? Is there a missing episode here?moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Pete: Oh, why can't they put the warehouse in, like, Maui?
      Myka: Really? Because I love winter! I love snowmobiling and snowball fights, and, ooh, and hot apple cider!
      Pete: Yeah, that's 'cause you're from, like, the Rockies. There's no air up there. Your brain--not normal.
      Myka: Really? This from a man who giggles at "Grand Tetons."
      Pete: You know what that means in French, don't you?

    • Claudia: I got you something very special, and I think you're gonna like it.
      Artie: Why?
      Claudia: It's called a present. You're familiar with presents, right? We Earthlings exchange them as a sign of affection and gratitude.

    • Claudia: Poor Artie. It must be exhausting to be that grouchy without even time off for the holidays.
      Joshua: You think he was like that as a kid?
      Claudia: Whoa. I've never actually pictured Artie as a child. It's disturbing.
      Joshua: Yeah, it is.

    • Myka: Artie, is it, is it possible that...?
      Artie: That yes, Virginia, there really is a Santa Claus?
      Pete: The dude enters and exits through chimneys! He travels across the room as fairy dust. Look, Artie, this was the real Santa, okay? Oh, and by the way, be nice because Santa is badass.
      Artie: There really was a St. Nicholas in Fourth Century Turkey and he was known to have put coins in people's shoes.
      Pete: Real Santa! Excellent! You know, I knew it. Seriously, it explains so much.
      Myka: You're making a Christmas list in your head right now, aren't you?
      Pete: Maybe.

    • Artie: Where have you been?
      Claudia: Oh, you missed me.
      Artie: I was worried.
      Claudia: Same thing.
      Artie: No, it's not. There'd be paperwork.

    • Isadore: (about Claudia) She's not yours, is she?
      Artie: No, God no! No, no, no. She wasn't even born of man. She noodged her way into existence!
      Isadore: That's very good. Noodged!

    • Myka: Do not eat the stuffing out of the bowl!
      Pete: Why not? It's delicious!
      Myka: I don't want your cooties!

  • NOTES (5)


    • Joshua: God bless us, every one.
      Referencing the last line of the 1843 novella A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens. It is spoken by Timothy Cratchit, known by the nickname "Tiny Tim." Tim is dying until Ebenezer Scrooge repents his ways after seeing a possible future and pays for the boy's medical treatment.

    • Artie: That yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus?
      Referencing the famous editorial written by Francis Pharcellus Church for The Sun on September 21, 1897. An eight-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon Douglas wrote to the newspaper, asking if there was no Santa Claus as her friends claimed. Church responded at some length, saying there was and always would be a Santa Claus. His editorial is the most reprinted editorial in the English language.

    • Pete: Got it, Kirk out.
      Referencing the original Star Trek (1966-69), starring William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk, commander of the starship Enterprise. The crew use handheld communicators, and Kirk often signs out with the phrase. Pete has used a similar phrase before, in "Duped."

    • Pete: Cat's in the cradle, huh?
      Referencing the 1974 folk song by Harry Chapin, from his album Verities & Balderdash. It tells the story of a father who is too busy to spend time with his son, until the son grows up and in turn tells his father he's too busy to spend time with him.
