just like old times
Written by: David Ehrman

It's the holidays and Carmen Sandiego is lonely. She wants things to be the way they were before she became a thief, just for a little while. Carmen steals the Chief from Acme's computer so the two can spend Christmas together like they did when she was a detective. Carmen doesn't know the Chief has come down with a computer virus and his memory begins to fade. The Chief doesn't remember Carmen left Acme to become a thief and soon it really is just like old times. Zack and Ivy leave Carmen clues, daring her to steal Christmas related items so they can find a way of getting the Chief back before his memory is completely erased.

I thought this episode was cute. Carmen is hilarious in this one. Her concern and panic over his memory loss was touching. Is it just me or does Carmen seen to be a hopeless klutz in this episode? She kind of stumbles from Acme trap to Acme trap. I found it quite amusing.
