KARL: No, last year I gave you the Rudolph card.
BEN: Hey Grandad, thanks for the card. I love Rudolph!

KARL: Yes... yes. And I can't wait to see your face when my stuffed cauliflower explodes in your mouth!
Ben can clearly see that Karl has forgotten about making lunch.

Karl and Ben are trying to throw together a Christmas lunch from some carrots, a tin of beans and a bottle of sherry (which Ben hates). Susan asks if Ben has been roped into helping since he hates cooking. Ben claims he wanted to make up for everything he's done this year. Susan tells him he's more than made up for that but Karl tells Susan there's something she needs to know he found the Sherry in Ben's room!
KARL: Mm- hmm, fess up.
BEN: Us kids love it. It's the new goon!
KARL: I didn't want to say anything but he feels terrible. He feels like he's ruined Christmas lunch. So I'm going to let him make lunch to atone.
SUSAN: Oh, what's on your menu?
BEN: Um for entrées we're gonna have nuts and berries in a Christmas cup. And then for mains we're gonna have [Karl hands him an apple] a baked apple lasagne. And then for dessert we're gonna have some carrot cake but it's gonna be deconstructed!
Susan is clearly not buying it and tells Ben it's really not necessary because Karl had his heart set on making lunch. Karl claims Ben has spent his birthday money on the ingredients. Susan asks for Karl's wallet and asks Ben if he spent the whole $100. Ben says yes and Susan gives him $100! Biting his tongue, Karl goes out to pick some herbs.
SUSAN: Baked apple lasagne?!

Robinson's Motel kitchen
Paul tells Karl he'd love to help him but it's Christmas.
KARL: I knew I should have gone to Lassiters.
PAUL: You look me in the eye and tell me that you haven't been there first!
KARL: Oh Paul, come on. After the wretched year you've had, surely you want to spread some festive cheer?
PAUL: Ho, ho, you've blown it Karl, ho!
Karl asks if Paul doesn't have any cancellations. He checks the list and says three people haven't shown up so Karl can take their meals. Paul looks a little too happy and Karl asks how much this is going to cost him.
Karl is dressed in an elf costume at the side of the road, holding a sign that says, "Merry Christmas from Robinson's Motel" and wishing passing motorists a merry Christmas. He spots a familiar car but it's too late to hide. Susan pulls up and gives him a terrifying look.

Susan gets out of the car and asks Karl what he's doing here instead of cooking lunch at home. Karl claims that Ben went missing. He found him but he's very upset about lunch.

Ben winds down the car window and Karl tells him they've been worried sick.
SUSAN: Oh Karl, stop talking and get in the car.

As they return home, Susan tells Karl it would have been a lot easier if he'd just admitted he forgot about making Christmas lunch. However, they find a full lunch on the table. Paul knocks at the door and Karl thanks him, saying he owes him one. Susan invites Paul in to join them despite Karl's best efforts to keep him out.
SUSAN: Now tell me, have you ever seen such a magnificent feast?
PAUL: I'd be lying if I said I hadn't!
Karl thanks Paul for saving his bacon.
PAUL: Yeah, Karl, I meant to tell you before; I gave away your lunches.
KARL: What? What do you mean?
PAUL: Well the original customer turned up and claimed their order.
KARL: Well who was the customer?
SUSAN: Who do you think?
KARL: You knew? And you knew?
PAUL: Karl, when are you going to realise that nothing gets past Ninja Suse?
Karl asks why Paul had him dancing around like an elf; he looked like an idiot. Susan says he's just answered his own question. Suddenly Karl isn't hungry.
