It's Christmas time and Al, the Grinch tells Teddy and Laurie that they have to come in tomorrow to wait for something important to be delivered. When they complain to Al. he retorts by saying that years ago when he was starting, his mentor Maury Chekof did the same thing to him, so he has no sympathy for them. Later that evening Al's at home and Maury shows up as a ghost and tells Al he's going to be visited by three ghosts. And he is and they show him how his life was, is and could be.
