    Cody has got himself electrocuted with high voltage on his van's Christmas lighting for a local contest. J.T. proves himself a gifted salesman eager to pay for a ski trip, but Cody's friend George, who never saved a cent after 42 years in an ice cream cart because he even gave cones away just to see the kids' happy faces, sabotages every attempt to sell a beautiful Christmas tree he promised to Jimmy, a boy who could never afford one and may accept no charity, so George gave the kid a 'job' after an exam ('name?'). Frank invited Mitch Crawford's Californian family, who knew the Lamberts years ago, for the family's Christmas dinner instead of the lousy local motel. Both fathers arranged for hunky son Matt Crawford to 'date' tomcat Al, Carol got them shamefully sissy ballet tickets. The unwilling teenagers meet at tender-hooks, but discover to be rather alike, give the tickets away, go to ice-hockey instead- and are caught tongue-kissing in the car by Frank, who looses it at Matt till the Crawfords move out insulted: far beneath Carols's hospitality standard, especially for Christmas...
