Howard said it was time to open his Christmas gifts, and Gary announced, upon unwrapping the first package, the people from iNDEMAND got him "old radios." Howard responded by saying he liked the present, and assured Gary he didn't want them to be put in the wood chipper that was in the studio to destroy bad gifts. Gary then got to Sal's present to Howard, which was an old Mad Magazine with him on the cover. However, because Howard mentioned he had "10 copies" of the magazine, he had Gary put it in the wood chipper, but, since it didn't work, he noted Sal's gift was "saved."
The next gifts Gary opened for Howard were the ones he got him, which were a number of antique items, including a dictionary from 1911. Artie then asked Gary to read the definition of the n-word in the dictionary, which he read as, "of or pertaining to negroes." Gary then opened a pair of sneakers Dan the Song Parody Man got for Howard, as well as a $2,000 gift certificate to Barney's from Artie, a bottle of champagne from Scott DePace, and some journals from Will. In addition, Gary opened books about chess that Jon Hein got for Howard, and a 3-year-old African American child named Tyler given to him by Benjy.
After having a conversation with Tyler and instructing Ronnie the Limo Driver to put Benjy's gift in his car, Howard commented he wanted Jason's gift – which was another book – to be put in the wood chipper, but it again didn't work. Gary next got to the interns' gift, which was the Gross Master Junior, and Howard demanded it be smashed, as well as a pair of shoes given to him by Doug Goodstein.
Finally, Howard opened his presents from Robin, which were king and queen chess pieces made of crystal. After Artie opened his present from Robin, which was a travel clock, Mike Gange said he got the wood chipper working, and put Jason's book in it – causing the chipper to cease again. Gange proceeded to refuse to take blame for the way the machine malfunctioned, explaining he couldn't get a gas powered one because they wouldn't be able to use it in the studio.
