“Yeti, Set, Snow” – When Boomer discovers that he and Boz do not have any brotherly memories like he and Brady do, he sets out to recreate a ski-trip from his childhood.

“Oh, Christmas Nuts!” – To teach the gang about the spirit of Christmas, Rudy volunteers Jack, Jerry and Milton to work at Santa’s village.
