Well, to be honest, the plot and the setup of this episode was pretty dumb... and didn't make a hell of a lot of sense. Everything magically hinged on Jane getting carded at the bar they go to all the time. And on the waiter somehow noticing her ID was fake, and then everyone finding out that she'd been lying about her birthday being July 16 to cover up that she was actually born on Christmas. And her sister Alex not remembering when her real birthday was (okay, it's Alex; that we can kind of buy). And then there was the subplot about Dave helping Penny find a gift, but waiting until like Christmas Day to do it. And then where did these Arcade Fire tickets just magically appear from? But, despite those quibbles, "No-Ho-Ho" was still very well executed and filled with the typically delightful sight gags and clever dialogue that this show regularly delivers. So in the spirit of Christmas, we won't dwell too long on the small stuff, especially when there's a host of people covering their eyes with washcloths because they got pepper-sprayed trying to throw a surprise party for Jane.
