When sparks start to fly between Jack and his dance instructor, Christine (Michelle Nolden, "Numb3rs"), Jack will have to make some important decisions before it is too late.

In "Help for the Holidays", one of Santa's hardest working elves, Christine, goes on a special assignment for Christmas as a new nanny for a family in desperate need of a holiday makeover. When she realizes that the family lacks warmth and closeness due to the stress of owning a business, she sets out to teach them what it really means to be a family at Christmas time. Will Christine fail her assignment and get sent back to the North Pole, or will the VanCamps come to their senses about the meaning of Christmas. Stars Summer Glau ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles"), Eva LaRue ("CSI: Miami"), Dan Gauthier ("One Life to Live"), and John Brotherton ("Jane By Design").
