TRIVIA:
* One of the funnier conversations in the series appears in this episode:
RUSH: I been playin' basketball in the gym ever since school let out.  I can hardly drag one foot after the other.

VIC: I been manipulating large business enterprises.  I can hardly drag one brain after the other.  
Joyeux Noel:
was a series of widespread unofficial ceasefires that took place along the Western Front around Christmas 1914, during World War I. Through the week leading up to Christmas, parties of German and British soldiers began to exchange seasonal greetings and songs between their trenches; on occasion, the tension was reduced to the point that individuals would walk across to talk to their opposite numbers bearing gifts. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, many soldiers from both sides – as well as, to a lesser degree, from French units – independently ventured into "no man's land", where they mingled, exchanging food and souvenirs. As well as joint burial ceremonies, several meetings ended in carol-singing. Troops from both sides were also friendly enough to play games of football with one another. (Source: Wikipedia)

  1. This feels like one of the best episodes. Coincidences, social position, family status, AND males asleep on the floor! Sade left awake while the men doze (and she's the one on the comfy davenport!). We were too poor for a davenport, so we had a sofa.
