Episode Summary

Parker accidentally gives his coupon book gift to Joey instead of Karen. Joey takes advantage of it and has Parker perform many of the tasks written on the coupons. Liv discovers that Karen's special Christmas Eve dinners were nothing more than takeout food. Liv is now forced to ask Artie for help, to which he happily agrees if Liv will do a photo shoot with him. Unfortunately, Liv has no choice but to agree. Later, Liv invites Gemma and her crew to the dinner because they were busy working with Voltage rather than spending time with their families. Meanwhile, Maddie pranks Willow by giving her a present with coal in it, but Willow takes it to heart. Later, Maddie and Willow accidentally wrap the coal in one of the presents Santa will be handing out. Shortly after, when Willow performs that same trick on Johnny Nimbus that Maddie performed on her, she understands why it was funny. Maddie then ends up inviting Johnny Nimbus to dinner and they, the rest of the people, and the Rooneys all enjoy a nice Christmas dinner.
