Liz is full of the Christmas spirit and tries to encourage all the staff of TGS With Tracy Jordan to participate in a program of toys for underprivledged children. Jenna is just full of spirits and tipsily vounteers. The others, apart from Kenneth, aren't so keen. But Tracy breaks down in tears on hearing the first letter to Santa and, rather than pledging the shoes the child pleaded for, intends to send the tot a jet ski. At least his heart's in the right place, eh? The other writers then grudgingly agree to give.
When we last left Jack, his flight to Florida had been pre-empted by a snowstorm. This week, he makes it there, but not for the sun, sand, sea, sex and drinks he'd hoped for. Instead, this trip is to visit with his acidic mother, Colleen (Elaine Stritch). The plan is an early, hasty Christmas with his mom after which he'll jet to Rio to "tan in the nude [and] bet on some monkey wrestling". Except nothing goes to plan for this bunch, does it? Otherwise, there wouldn't be much of a show.
