Over at Scotty and Saul's restaurant, Santa is getting sauced at the bar. And can you blame him? If you had to deliver presents to 8 million ungrateful children around the world in ten minutes or less you'd be a little stressed out too. Plus before you get to perform that magical feat you have to stomach letting germy jam-sticky kids crawl all over you begging for the latest in Despicable Me merchandise. Like, ew. Trust me, you'd be hitting the hooch too.So Santa tries to drink in peace while Scotty, Saul, and Kevin gawk from the kitchen. Kevin stops gawking long enough to admire a lesbian friend's child. I know that he is friends with lesbians because they say their names and show their Christmas card so that we all know that Kevin is both gay, gay friendly, and willing to make friends on the lesbian side of the rainbow. An old friend of Saul's interrupts the gawking. That can mean only one thing: Saul is getting heartache for Christmas. (That's what you get for being Jewish, Saul!) I'm not sure why the writers on this show hate Saul so much, but I guarantee that this guy, Jonathan, is not the cure for Saul's lonely heart. The question is will he date him before breaking his heart? Or just shout "I Love You, Saul!" and then slap him across the face and storm out right this very second? Let's see: A well-dressed man in a scarf (not a winter scarf, but a fun, satiny number that straight men would shy away from) starts and stares and gasps, "Saul?" Saul then starts and stares and gasps, "Jonathan?" Scotty and Kevin get all wide-eyed and Yenta-ish as Jonathan tells Saul he is off to sing in Handel's "Messiah", but would love to talk. He gives him his card and exits as Scotty and Kevin start singing the "Hallelujah Chorus" really loudly, which is undoubtedly not at all annoying for the restaurant patrons. Saul stares blankly at the duo, but there is no stopping their gushing.
Sarah, who swore up and down that she was managing a large media corporation and would never ever be loitering around her mom's radio station, is at her mom's radio station. Specifically, she is glowering at all the holiday merry-making and Santa paraphernalia littering the halls and meeting with Frank about the absolutely necessary three-days-before-Christmas staff reductions. Read: lay offs. Frank is not too happy. Why is Sarah such a Scrooge? No, it's not because her heart is two sizes too small, but because she still has bangs and Luc is in China and her children are in Mexico with Joe and she only has her work and her family, nephew, mother, and recently-widowed sister to keep her occupied during the holiday season. Much like Kim Jong Il, she is so ronery! Take a moment to cry for her, Argentina. She tells Frank to fire everyone on the list because she has to go string cranberries and weep for her lonely life.
