It's Christmas time and the pressure of work means that Blue Moon has to work and the staff are not happy. Maddie is also under pressure and says she regrets keeping the agency open. Her guardian angel approaches her and shows her how life would have been if she hadn't kept the agency open. The agency becomes the Hart Detective agency run by Jonathan and Jennifer Hart. The angel then shows her what all the other employees and David end up doing.
Did You Know?
The episode has a dream sequence where the Blue Moon detective agency becomes the Hart Detective Agency, with an employee named Max, played by Lionel Stander
. Both are in-joke references to Hart to Hart
(1979). See more
When Maddie asks Max about what happened to the Blue Moon Detective Agency, Max tells her that they came in and fired everyone 2.5 years earlier. However, in the pilot episode, when Maddie comes in to shut the place down, it's called City of Angels Investigations. It only becomes Blue Moon Detective Agency when she decides to keep it running with David Addison. So Max should have had no idea what she was talking about. See more

[answering the phone
If your stocking gets stolen and your tree can't be found, / You may as well call us 'cause we'll be around. / We have to work christmas, so if you're in a pinch, / Just give Blue Moon a jingle and ask for the Grinch.
