In Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Pete and Myka pose as power workers to get to a home where Rudolph’s Nose, a powerful artifact, has brought the Christmas spirit to light. A reindeer slams through the door while animated Christmas lights drags Pete away, while Myka tries to get to the roof but a Santa statue whips her. As Pete is pulled away, he grabs a statue of a choir boy who comes to life and starts beating the agent over the head with his song book. Myka finally manages to recover Rudolph’s Nose and neutralize it. The statues become statues again and the “reindeer” reverts to a dog with antlers, just like it was originally. The young girl who lives at the house, Carie, runs out to get her dog and thanks Pete with a candy cane. Her parents come out and the agents hastily try to explain what was going on...

Episode Quotes
Pete: Okay, okay, do the words "warehouse," "artifact," and "Univille" mean anything to you?
Myka: No, but "creepy," "trespassing," and "federal offense" do.

Pete: Hey, hey, Claud. You know, it's not just about Joshua or the compass. The three of us, we're your family too. I mean, I'm like your big brother. And Myka's like your big sister. And Artie's so much like your dad, it's kind of annoying.

Artie: He is headed for the Lehmann Fornax.
Claudia: You just make this stuff up, don't you?
Artie: In 1939, Inge Lehmann discovered the earth had a super-heated core, and we've been using it to heat this warehouse since 1939.
Claudia: Whoa, whoa, wait. This place is heated by a giant furnace heated by the earth's core?
Artie: You should see the air-conditioner.

Cultural References
Among the artifacts in the Aisle of Noel is the Woman's Leg Lamp from the perennial holiday movie, A Christmas Story.

Pete: I mean, what, is Artie using Harriet Tubman’s thimble to turn himself into Dr. Evil?

Dr. Evil is the short, bald criminal genius of the Austin Powers movies, played by Mike Myers.

Claudia: Now let’s find your brush, my compass, and we’ll get you some courage.

In The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900) by L. Frank Baum, the Cowardly Lion is seeking courage and travels with Dorothy, the Scarecrow, and the Tin Man to the city of Oz to obtain it.

Claudia: If that's what you need to tell yourself, Deputy Dawg.

Deputy Dawg was the title character in a Terrytoons animated series, a anthropomorphic dog who worked as a deputy sheriff in Mississippi.

Claudia: The only person happy about it is Smiley Magoo over here.

Mr. Magoo is a famous fictional near-sighted cartoon character, created in 1949, who has appeared in numerous theatrical shorts, TV series, and a life-action movie.

Pete: Yo, Adrian.

This line is spoken by Rocky Balboa referring to his wife, Adrian Pennino-Balboa, in the various Rocky movies.
