"White Lie Christmas" is the Christmas episode of the NBC sitcom My Name is Earl.


Earl has wrecked every Christmas he's spent with Joy, so he, Randy, and Catalina try to win a Dodge Neon in a contest wherein they had to keep their hands on it, in an attempt to give it for Joy for a Christmas present. Earl is eliminated when he goes to shake hands with Randy, so it's up to him and Catalina to win the car.

Meanwhile, Earl decides to make up for wrecking Dodge's and Earl Jr.'s Christmas one year. He then finds out that Joy never told her parents that they were no longer married, and lied about his absence by saying he was serving in Iraq. She explains to him that her father is a racist and would freak if he knew she was married to Darnell. Her mother (Brett Butler) has also been struck with rheumatoid arthritis and kidney failure, needs dialysis, and is in a wheelchair. Earl finds out that this is a lie: she has been gambling away the "dialysis" money at an Indian casino. He has much work to do if he wants this Christmas to go well.

Meanwhile, the contest for the car comes down to Randy and Catalina, and when it turns out Catalina has no intention of giving it to Joy. Randy becomes determined to defeat her.
