When the water heater breaks in their house, Julius and Rochelle must tell Chris that they can't afford to buy him the new Walkman cassette player that he wants for Christmas. Meanwhile, Drew spills the beans on Santa Claus to Tonya, making her question other things her parents have told her.
Parents were outraged at this episode when they said that Santa Claus does not exist. To make things worse, they also blurted out that the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy were also fictionalized. For more information, click here

Rochelle: So, you do understand.
Tonya: Yeah, it's okay to lie.
Rochelle: Oh baby, you'll be able to use up all hot water you want.

Julius: Steaming hot.
Narrator: My mother would give away all the food we had, if she thought it would prove we didn't need it.
Tonya: (About her new doll) I wanted a Cabbage Patch doll with long hair!
Rochelle: How about you have no doll with no hair?
Narrator: My mom had amazing hearing. You couldn't do anything in that house without her hearing.
Rochelle: (To Chris, who is in a different room) Chris! Quit throwing cotton balls all over the place!
