To fill the void, she participates in a charity program, "Letters to Santa," to help underprivileged kids have a nice Christmas. Meanwhile, Jack (Baldwin) takes his frustration out on the TGS staff when his plans for a dream holiday vacation away from his overbearing mother, Colleen (guest star Elaine Stritch), are crushed. The TGS crew are forced to give up their plans to produce a last minute Christmas special. Also stars Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski, Jack McBrayer, Judah Friedlander and Keith Powell.
