Stress levels skyrocket when Rebecca's passive-aggressive mother arrives for Hanukkah. Meanwhile, Heather and Greg spend an awkward Christmas at his mother's house; and Josh attempts to recapture his former dance glory.
It's the December holiday season. Because Rebecca didn't go back to New York to spend Thanksgiving with her mother who has controlled most everything that has happened in her life up until she moved to West Covina, her mother decides to come to West Covina for Hanukkah. Rebecca doesn't want to admit that she still is a "mom pleaser", doing everything in her power to make her mother happy. But Rebecca does admit that she wants the family heirloom of the Garfinkel ring for what it means. It is passed down through the female lineage of her family, that transfer which was supposed to happen when Rebecca was eighteen as a sign of becoming a mature adult, but her mother who did not feel she was ready at that time for the responsibility. Rebecca will have to decide how far she will go to please her mother on the expectation that she came to West Covina now in part to go through with the family ritual. Meanwhile, Josh is lamenting no longer being a kid, as he misses the fun that kids have at Christmas. Josh is able to revisit his past, and learns if he can indeed go back in his life again. And Greg is dreading the one dinner he has each year for the holidays on Christmas Eve Eve with his mother Shawna - who he feels abandoned him - and her new pretentious and ostentatious Beverly Hills life, which includes "trotting him out" as the poor, worthless son to her husband, Stew, and Greg's teenaged twin half siblings, Mason and Lily. Upon a request, he unexpectedly brings a second for the first time if only to have someone he knows validate what he goes through and thus justify his feelings of anger and resentment toward his mother, who he cannot even call mom.
