Ed walks into the Stuckey Bowl saying that it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. He tells everyone to gather 'round. Kenny, Shirley, Phil, and a stranger have a seat at the snack bar. Ed asks the guy who he is, and he says he's Fred Butts. Ed wants to know what Fred's doing there; Fred says that Ed told everyone to gather 'round, and he thought something might be going down. Ed tells him that he just meant for the staff to gather 'round. Butts says, "Oh," gets up, and walks away. Phil shoots Ed a look like, "Now, that guy was a psycho." Ed says he's come up with the perfect theme for the Christmas party. Phil says he's already come up with the ultimate theme: Christmas on Saturn. Shirley asks if they're talking about Saturn the planet or Saturn the car? Kenny scoffs at this ignorant suggestion and asks Phil what the difference is between Christmas on Saturn and Christmas on Jupiter? Phil scoffs back and says, "The rings." Ed tries his best to ignore his staff and continues: the theme for this year's Christmas party will be...charity. Shirley asks whether he means charity the planet or charity the car. Ed looks at her, and she says, "That was a joke." Ed informs them that they have to raise $100,000 for the Prescott Foundation in orderto keep it running. Shirley says she's in, and puts her hand out for everyone else to put their hands on top of hers. Phil's in; Kenny says he could use a Hail Mary to get him off the naughty list, so he's in. Ed tells them to let the preparations begin as the men walk away, leaving Shirley sitting at the snack bar with her hand still straight out in front of her, still waiting for that macho show of camaraderie that never comes when a woman starts the whole "I'm In!" hand thrust.
