Christmas special"A Funny Thing Happen on the Way to the Smithsonian" Christmas Special
This takes place when our two retired-military personnel, John Rockwell and Dmitri Gavlik, were cleaning Discovery and Enterprise at the NASA Space and Air Museum. John is on Discovery, on top of the cargo doors with a cleaning mop, and Dmitri is on Enterprise, on the right wing, with a scrubbing brush. "Hey Dmitri since its Christmas, we should do our own Christmas song" said John. Dmitri just kept on cleaning but replied, "What do you have in mind." John thought about this and said "How about Jingle Bells NASA style?" The shuttles weren't really paying attention to their conversations because they normally talk about past military tactics and victories.
