Plot Overview

At the start of the holiday season, Napoleon and Illya are assigned to baby-sit Russian dignitary Koz, who's supposed to speak at the United Nations and is the target of an assassin. They are forced to listen to Koz complain about Christmas and Capitalism, but at the same time, they are amused to see that he is taken with a fetching girl who is collecting for the Salvation Army. She and some skid row denizens help the UNCLE agents when the bullets start flying, and Koz finally gets what Christmas is all about when he dresses in a Santa suit and visits a critically ill young boy.
