Archie's depressed at Christmas, particularly since he has to find a way to tell his family he did not get the bonus he expected because his team bungled a work order. Christmas is anything but merry in the Bunker household this year. Anticipating his usual Christmas bonus, Archie makes like a modern-day Scrooge when the bonus doesn't come through. Meanwhile, Edith, Gloria, and Mike try to make the best of things for themselves and their erstwhile dinner guests, the Jeffersons.
