Your Daily Dose of Christmas
In the first season of The West Wing, the Christmas episode had a storyline in which Toby Ziegler (the communications director, and my favorite character on the show) was contacted when a homeless man died wearing one of his overcoats. It turned out to be a coat Toby had donated to Goodwill without removing his card from the pocket...and it turned out that the homeless man was a Korean War vet. Toby used his influence to arrange a full military funeral for the man, which resulted in one of the first season's most memorable endings.
