Moonlighting's first Christmas episode involves, Mary, Joseph and the Three Kings--sort of. It all begins when a woman named Mary (Leslie Wing) hides her baby in the apartment of Blue Moon's secretary Agnes (Allyce Beasley) after Mary's husband Joseph is gunned down by the minions of an ill-tempered gangster. As for the Three Kings, they're actually the three King Brothers, Saul (Daniel Chodos), Jim (John Hostetter) and Reuben (James Avery)--and the possibility exists that they are not so much Wise Men as wise guys! Watch how the series' cast and crew cleverly plays for time when the episode abruptly runs out of script.
