The tone of this episode is established at the beginning, as the Vandellas' Heat Wave is heard over shots of a snow-blanketed Washington DC at Christmastime. Having no particular fondess for the holiday--in the past it's been an occasion for drinking, and she's through with that--Murphy (Candice Bergen) has decided to stay at home and avoid all Yuletide celebrations. But her Scroogelike demeanor crumbles when three abandoned children (one of them played by an 11-year-old Edan Gross) are left on her doorstep.
