Christmas is hardly a time of peace on earth and good will to men for Louie (Danny DeVito), especially when his prodigal brother Nick (Richard Forojny) shows up for the holidays. A reckless Las Vegas gambler, Nick insists he has changed his ways and will devote more time to his neglected mother. But the call of the cards and chips proves too strong -- and ultimately the future of Nicky, Danny and everyone in the garage hinges on a single hand of poker. Originally, Nicky was to have been played by series regular Andy Kaufman in his obnoxious "Tony Clifton" alter ego, but according to legend, "Tony" was so disruptive during rehearsal that he had to be literally dragged off the set. (We'll take their word for it when the other cast members insist they weren't in on Kaufman's joke.)
