The Arnolds throw their annual Christmas party, but after things just aren't the same with their guests, this may be their last. Jack's old war buddy, Bill, shows up without his wife, Marsha, but with his young girlfriend, Carol, instead. Jack's golf buddy, Lou, stopped drinking and Mr. Wannamaker has a coughing attack. Neighbor Ed Ermin gets away from his wife and everyone else when he makes himself at home by smoking marijuana in the basement. After Kevin and Wayne get back from a soda run, they find all the guests have left and their parents are curled up by the fire; they just wanted to be alone.


The episode was made available on The Wonder Years: The Complete Series DVD set, released by StarVista and Time-Life on September 29, 2014.
