“The Big Apple. Christmas Eve. Dirty snow. Yuppies walk the streets, pointing and laughing at homeless people. Rats are eating a Bloomingdale’s holiday display. Random man on a street corner is
shooting a handgun into the air while laughing/screaming — no-one reacts.

COOKIE, a high-powered career woman, JOSEPH, her coworker/gay best friend, and their BOSS are working on Christmas Eve because godlessness.

COOKIE: Ugh, I hate Christmas. Also I haven’t gotten laid in weeks because I’m a feminist.

BOSS: Cookie, you are fired for being too good at your job. I’m going to visit a prostitute now. (leaves)

JOSEPH: Too bad about being fired, Cookie. At least now you have time to visit your folks!

COOKIE: (checking email) Oh shit, my parents just died in an unfortunate
reindeer farm accident and left me their Christmas-themed B&B.

JOSEPH: Girl, let’s go to New England and get us some country dick!”
