- Family-Unfriendly Aesop: The Christmas Episode has Carrie bringing a friend round for dinner on Christmas Eve. He ends up stealing all the presents under the tree and giving them to the homeless. The episode then ends with An Aesop about how Christmas is about giving to everyone. Right, so the moral is it doesn't matter if someone invites you into their house and it's completely okay to steal their possessions as long as you're giving them to someone less fortunate. The friend never thought about asking the family if they'd donate their gifts to the homeless before stealing them?
