It's Christmas-time and his business plans are to tear down the 4th Street Mission so he can build a new office plaza. Al tells Sam that his mission is to save Blake from his own bah humbug ways. Sam takes him on a trip down memory lane by visiting his old neighborhood where he meets old friends and learns what happened to some of his old friends. Blake also takes an interest in the pretty Salvation Army Captain who runs the Mission. Despite progress, Sam can't quite get Blake to take the final step so he and Al decide the time has come to show him his future.
