For two years, the Chance boys indulged Victoria's superstitious belief that the world would end when the Mayan calender runs out, hording apocalyptic survival supplies. Now the day arrives, but it's just before Christmas, and Jimie refuses to miss out on Hope's first. The compromise is to hold an early Christmas, and the real if the world survives. Ultimately Burt misses out on his prize for pretending, a love night to end all time, when Jimie gives the game away. Victoria persists that time is ending, even grumpy when it doesn't, but when Rosa, who inspired her and spend the 'last day' at Disneyworld, returns broke, the provisions are still put to good use.
