As Willie is getting a pink stuffed elephant for the kid he turns around and finds out that marcus betrays him. Just when Marcus is about to shoot Willie the police pop out of hiding and begin chasing the two burglars. Willie escapes and makes it back to the house with the elephant and the police chasing him but gets shot by the police 8 times as he attempts to make it to the doorstep of the house. Months later, Willie writes the kid a letter letting him know that he is okay, Marcus is in jail, the police are in trouble for shooting Willie when he was unarmed, and that "Mrs Santa's sister" has got temporary custody over the kid until the kids' dad gets out of prison.

Question: If Thurman knows that Willie isn't Santa, why does he ask him questions as if he is Santa? (Ex: The many questions he asks while Willie's in the tub).

Answer: Thurman unfortunately isn't the smartest kid. He doesn't accept that Willie isn't Santa. He thinks Willie is trying to cover his identity as it's always a secret.
