MONK: Hey Alex, I hear you’re leaving early for the Holidays.
ALEX: Not exactly. It’s sort of a family emergency.
MONK: Do I want to know?
ALEX: Dad put up another one of his Christmas lawn decoration masterpieces again. The neighbors are starting to make threats.
MONK: Uh-oh. What did he do this time?
ALEX: An animatronic nativity featuring characters from the original series of Star Trek.
ALEX: Chekov as the Baby Jesus, Scotty as Joseph, Uhura as the Virgin Mary, Spock, Bones, and Sulu as the three Wise Men, a bunch of red shirts as shepherds, and Kirk as the archangel Gabriel staring up at the Christmas Star, shouting “Khaaaaaaan!”
MONK: But Kirk didn’t shout “Khaaaaaaan!” in the original series. That was from “The Wrath of Khan.”
ALEX: Congratulations. You found the thing that doesn’t bother them at all.
