Parker loves Christmas and tries to spread cheer amongst her grumpy team members as she waits for snow.

There will be a lot of coal in a lot of stockings if the team fails to vanquish the Bad Santas... led by a very naughty old foe. Written by LA-Lawyer

Hardison refers to the black van as "Lucille 2" (a long-running series of vans in the show's history) and says about Chaos to himself when Chaos tries to hack into the van's computer systems, commenting "You can keep on a-knockin', but you can't come in". The van's name and Hardison's comment are both references to the Little Richard songs "Lucille" and Little Richard's cover of "Keep On Knockin'". See more »
