In the offices of Pacific Records, we find Matt Roman in his office surfing the web. His secretary tells him over the intercom that Mr. Brian has an appointment with him. Matt was surprised that it was Liz & Scott's dog, Brian. "What do you want?" he asked sighing when he entered, "If it's about doing the Christmas show on HTV, forget it! Phoebe's back to being solo & I'm just like Zeppo Marx, gave up performing & becoming an agent." "Please listen to me Matt!" said Brian dramatically while begging like a dog, "Andy's doing the show, why no you. We could do a duet, do another carol other than The 12 Days of Christmas. Remember the time The Lawrence Brothers had a Christmas tv special on ABC & Matt was denied singing?" "That's a fanfic, Brian!" explained Matt, "Larry cries like Lucy, mixes It's A Wonderful Life & Scrooge together. My favorite part of the story was the Treasure Chest/We Hate Men! Hour game show parody. Got crazier & crazier." "Do it for me & your fans." exclaimed Brian, "We'll make somebody's Christmas." "The White Angels Christmas shows are more like The Lawrence Welk Show of the new millennium." quipped Matt, "I got an image to protect." "At least fans think they're wunnerful, wunnerful, wunnerful." said Brian, "Let's quit these outdated jokes & we can work together doing a number." The scene now shifts to Malibu Beach, California where we find Eric & Cody (in Guts swim briefs) on surfboards, riding the waves. When they reached shore, a muscle dude wearing shades came over to them. "You dudes learn fast!" "Thanks, Shades!" said Eric, "Just think, with our performance, girls living in 30 degree weather will turn into 100 degrees!" "Thanks for teaching us to surf." said Cody, "Anything we can do for you, name it?" Eric & Cody started flexing their muscles putting on a bodybuilder show with Shades playing snare drum, mostly hip hop beats & drum rolls. "Big finish, dudes!" said Shades as he went to the tympani & played a long hard drum roll. Cody kneeled down & grabbed Eric's legs. Then he lifted Eric up & stood with Eric on his shoulders as Eric flexed. Then Shades stopped as Cody kneeled down & Eric got off him. "Awesome dudes!" said Shades. "You're not a bad drummer yourself." said Eric. Frank spotted his drummers. "I can't believe you're going to make a mockery of our Christmas special with that stupid song you wrote." said Frank. "You said it yourself it was a cool song." said Cody, "Eric thought it be a great idea if we did this @ the beach." "A novelty tune for a music video." said Frank, "Finish up your project." Frank left as they started working on the music video which we'll reveal later in the story. At the HTV studios, we find TWA taping their special. The show opens with Cody playing a tympani drumroll, then the band joins in playing "O Come All Ye Faithful (Adeste Fideles)" as an orchestra (Fred on chimes, Joe playing softly on his electric guitar & Eric playing the drums with brushes). After the song, Frank talked to the camera. "Welcome to our Christmas show. Last year, we had a local Christmas show in Philadelphia that Channel 44 aired. Now a year later, Channel 44's airing our special as an HTV affiliate. We got cool songs & surprises to make your yuletide great, so take a break from wrapping gifts. We'll be back after this commercial." After commercial, the band did a rap Christmas number that had Eric & Cody wearing their caps backwards & shades as they played the drums. Then Jason & David started rapping together as then played their bass guitar & keys. After the song, David went over to the organ & played "O Little Town of Bethlehem". David then got a surprise as manager Ray Walters entered with his brown sunburst electric guitar he played on "35410". Ray said, "Even though David & I lived in different music worlds on 35410 & never played together on the show, set your vcrs! For the first time, David & I are gonna perform together." Ray & David played their instruments & sang "Winter Wonderland", then David played an organ solo followed by Ray's guitar solo. After commercial, Ben & Fred had their turn. Fred plays a chimes solo. Then he plays backup as Ben plays rhythm vibes & sings "All Alone For Christmas" with a vibes solo near the end of the tune. Then Ben goes over to the chimes & plays "What Child Is This?", then Fred joins in playing in a Tijuana beat on the marimba, chord rolling & singing the tune, followed by a marimba solo. Then the chimes are ditched as Ben & Fred played & sang "Silver Bells". Now the moment you've been waiting for! The video opens with Eric & Cody (in Guts) surfing on their surfboards. When they reached shore, they drop their boards, headed to the stage as Cody sat behind a set of drums & Eric stood behind the tympanis. Cody plays a beach drum beat as Eric plays a tympani fanfare. Then taped music that Joe, Bart & Jason provided, played as they started singing the song... ERIC: Christmas weather does snow & freeze, But @ the beach, it's only 80 degrees. CODY: Santa uses his magical sleigh, but in warm & hot climate, he should travel this way. BOTH: Grab your surfboard & go for the ride, Deliver the presents while you surf @ high tide. Surfin Santa's gonna hang ten, For real cool dudes like Stacy & Ken. Cody plays a drum solo as Eric plays tympani. Then when Eric played a solo, Cody got up from the drums, grabbed some mallets & played tympani. Eric stopped & went over to the drums & played a drum solo. Then they sang the song again. After the song, Santa arrives in a wetsuit & gives them fake presents. After commercial, Bart was up next. "Just recently, I adopted a child just like Frank did. Meet my teenage son, Homer." The band did a swing version of "White Christmas" with Bart on tenor sax & Homer on guitar. First, Bart sang half the song then Homer did the other half. Then Bart plays a sax solo with Homer strumming. Next, as Homer plays his guitar solo, Bart switches instruments, then Bart plays a guitar solo. Then Homer & Bart put a finish on their guitars. Next up, Frank & Victoria were cuddling along the fireplace watching the fake snow fall. Then they took turns singing a slow version of "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow" with Frank playing a muted trumpet solo in the middle of the song. Next up, Joe played his electric guitar & sang "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" with guest Andy Roman playing the drums. After singing, Joe played a guitar solo followed by Andy's drum solo. After the song, Joe announced, "I like to introduce my children performing for the 1st time. Meet my children, Liz Roman & on guitar, Scott Roman!" As Joe & Andy played back up, Liz & Scott took turns singing "Jingle Bell Rock". Scott got to play his first guitar solo ever. After commercial, we find a bar setting as we spot Brian drinking a martini & Matt as a lounge singer playing his electric guitar. Brian comes over to Matt asking, "How about doing a Christmas song?" "Anything but The 12 Days of Christmas." says Matt, "Larry & David Fagin wore me out doing that song in past fanfics. I wanna do something else." "How about doing Silent Night in an angel costume?" asked Brian as Matt got mad. Then Brian got a $50 bill & placed it in his guitar case, then whispered an idea. Matt played beautiful guitar music as he & Brian sang, "O Holy Night". Matt had the romantic singing voice & Brian had his tenor voice. When Diana-Michele Valverde saw that part of the Christmas special on tv, she screamed, "Ahhhhhhhhh! Matt's such a sweetie, he's got a romantic singing voice! Why did he team up with a dog for?" After the song, they spotted me playing card games @ the bar. Matt & Brian insisted that I'd do "The 12 Days of Christmas" myself! So I played Matt's guitar & sang it myself. When I was through, confetti suddenly came down & I suddenly heard "The Price Is Right" theme with that famous whoop-Whoop-WHOOOOOOOOOOOP! Then Brian started acting crazy, doing his Curly, saying, "Woo woo woo woo woo! Moe, Larry, the Cheese! Moe, Larry, the Cheese!" "Great!" I groaned, "I'm getting a taste of my own medicine!" Matt handed me $10,000 & said in a game show host tone, "You win, Larry! And you also win this trip to ITALY!" Italy theme music was heard as Brian announced, "You'll be going on a two day visit to ITALY, TEXAS! Located between Hillsboro-Dallas along I-35E, where the main strip is U.S. 77. Enjoy the all you can eat pizza buffet & Luigi's Diner! Retain value of this cheap trip, $248." Now back to the seriousness. The band finished the show doing some jazzed up Christmas tunes. Then they did the Hallaluijah Chorus with Eric & Cody playing tympani together. The story now shifts to the Roman house on Christmas Eve night. Brian was in the living room sleeping. He was awaken when he heard someone coming down the chimney. Brian saw Santa Claus. "Why did you wake me up from my long winter's nap?" asked Brian. "It's time for you to go back to Rhode Island, Family Guy's back in production." explained Santa, "I know you'll miss the Romans." "I didn't mind being Joey Lawrence's pet dog." quipped Brian, "But Scott will be heartbroken to see me leave." "I got a solution to that." said Santa. He got to his pack & got out a box with holes in it. Brian opened the box & found a baby puppy dog that looked exactly like him when he was a puppy. He also wore a diaper. Baby puppy got out of the box & started running around the Christmas tree. Then he leaped up to Brian & gave him a hug. "I love you." "Get off me!" snapped Brian, then baby puppy started crying. Santa got a dog biscuit for him to eat not to disturb the humans. "You must be a runt." said Brian. Then he took the dog biscuit out of his mouth saying. "Baby puppy's like Brian except I'm polite, sensative & loving. Baby puppy wants a martini!" "Cute." quips Brian, "Not until you're three dog years old." Brian told the baby puppy about the family while Santa left a note & placed it in Scott's stocking. Baby puppy gave Brian a hug & went back in the box sleeping. Then Brian & Santa left the house. Christmas morning, the Romans are in the living room opening their gifts. Lou got an easel & art supplies, Joe got Danny Brown's music & football video, Liz got a doll house & Scott got a remote controlled Super Cool 4000 with all three Super Cool Brothers action figures. Then Scott opened that box to find a baby puppy dog that looked like Brian. "Brian! You got a nephew!" he yelled, but Brian didn't respond. Liz showed Scott that there's a note in his stocking along with some candy. Scott read the note that said, "Dear Romans; thanks for the temporary job of being part of this family. I'm back @ Rhode Island doing more Family Guy shows. Hope this baby clone will win your heart, Scott. I love you, Merry Christmas. Brian." The note ended with a paw print. Scott went upstairs to his bedroom & cried looking @ photos of Brian. One pic had Brian cover his ears with Joe playing guitar, another howling when Scott played & sang, another when he dressed as a girl to play in Liz's tea party. Lou brought the baby puppy into Scott's bedroom. Placed him on the bed & started licking his face begging, "Please give me a chance to fit in! I'll be your best friend, please give me a name?" Scott looked @ his Matt Roman poster. "I'll name you Matty." said Scott as Matty licked his face with approval.
