Over at Saks Fifth Avenue, we find out that Victoria's second job is as an elf in Santa's Playland. She's standing there looking absolutely miserable, and over walks her boss, some woman with an unidentifiable accent who's laying down the ground rules, since this is Victoria's "first season" in Santa's Playland. To wit, while Victoria might just be doing this for extra cash at the holidays, to the children she is Santa's special helper, through and through: "They should feel it in your presence. They should see it in the twinkle in your eye." Victoria's all, "Twinkle. Check." Crazy Supervisor Lady then starts lecturing Victoria on how she is an ambassador, not just for the "North Pole" but for the entire department store, so she should be helpful with customers, pointing them towards the restrooms and the gift-wrap counters. "Is this all making sense?" Victoria thinks about how amazingly complicated these instructions are and finally says yes. "Jolly good," says Crazy Supervisor Lady, and I really hope to God that doesn't mean that's an English accent she's trying to foist on us. Her attention is diverted, however, by a second Santa showing up while the other guy is still sitting with the kids. So Crazy Supervisor Lady stomps over and asks if he's forgotten protocol, and when Second Santa seems less than concerned, she lectures him about how confusing it is for the children to see two Santas and tells him just to "stick to protocol" and stomps off again, much to Victoria's amusement, and Victoria sidles up and says, "That woman has way too much holiday spirit." "Yeah, well, you should have seen her when I tried to cornrow my beard," says Bad Santa, which Victoria finds highly amusing. "So, sexy elf, what's your name?" he continues, and Victoria says "Victoria" and asks Santa what his name is, and he says "Santa" and strolls away, leaving Victoria befuddled.
