"Haus Arrest" is the first Christmas episode of the sitcom Dharma & Greg, aired in the show's first season.
Dharma's free spirit and maternal instincts are challenged when Greg's rebellious teenage niece, Jennifer, visits for the holidays and soon abuses her newfound friendship with her aunt. When Dharma discovers that Jennifer has invited a boyfriend over unannounced, she lowers the disciplinary boom--and Jennifer runs away. As punishment, Dharma and Jane take her along on a wacky shopping trip pretending to be monolingual German tourists. They are upset to discover that she has used them as a cover for actual shoplifting.
