Daniel: What do you mean, "It's like"? No, it is. This is, like, the first...

Melanie: Oh.

Daniel: It's too much. I can see by the look on your face it's too much.

Melanie: Okay, you need to calm down. It's not. It's just--it's dependent upon, um, if you're okay with--with-- with "Mother" being on the card.

Daniel: Yeah... I am.

Maggie: I have been looking all over the square!

Melanie: Hi!

Maggie: Hi, honey!

Daniel: Hey.

Maggie: Hi!

Daniel: Hey, how are you?

Maggie: [Laughs] Hi.

Melanie: Ready to get our shopping on?

Maggie: Oh, I better be. Oh, I've been so bad this year. I haven't even started anything yet.

Melanie: That--that's okay. It's okay--we'll start simple. Um...Victor.

Maggie: You think Victor's easy to shop for? Oh, try shopping for someone who doesn't possibly need anything at all.

Daniel: Well, he's--he's got you.

Melanie: Oh, well played.

Daniel: Right?

Maggie: Oh!

Melanie: Okay, all right. Okay, we'll--we'll go small, simple. Let's look--you want to look over there...

Maggie: Okay.

Melanie: At this table?

Maggie: Oh, that's nice!

Melanie: I know--I like that one.

Maggie: Daniel, you like this?

Daniel: I do--I saw those earlier. Those are great.

Maggie: Yeah?

Daniel: Yeah, yeah.

Maggie: I like the color.

Melanie: I do too.

Maggie: Yeah, pretty.

Melanie: I just don't know if I like the tall one or the short one. I like them both. I think he would like them both.

Lexie: Hmm.

[Door opens]

Stefano: If that was an X-ray of my chest, the only thing you would see is a broken heart.

[Door closes]

Lexie: That's not medically possible.

Stefano: I miss you, Alexandra. This distance between us-- I mean, it's not good for either one of us.

Lexie: You should have thought about that before you and EJ tried to unseat my husband as mayor.

Stefano: You're going to allow simple politics to come between you and me?

Lexie: This isn't about politics, Father. It's about your actions. That's what's come between us.

Stefano: It does not have to be that way.

Lexie: I agree. You know what I'd find if I took you down to imaging right now? Not a broken heart... I'd find what's always been there--a heart locked nice and tight, filled with nothing but secrets and lies.

Stefano: [Sighs]

Hope: We know this--this card is a lot to take in, to digest, but--

Marlena: But... but you need an answer.

Hope: We can't move forward without your permission.

Marlena: Permission to go behind John's back, talk to Stefano, and see if I can't negotiate John's freedom?

Hope: This is our best shot. It could be our best shot of ending this nightmare--

Marlena: If-- if it works! And there's no guarantee of that.

Hope: Marlena...

Bo: Marlena... bottom line--John is only here in Salem until this civil suit that EJ has brought is over. Once it's finished, he's being sent upstate.

Marlena: That transfer's been approved?

Rafe: That's why Carrie's on the phone right now. She's checking with her firm to see if there's something she can do to get that stopped.

Bo: Don't mean to upset you here, mar--

Marlena: I'm upset enough already!

Bo: Yeah, but... the prison he's going to is one of the worst in the system. The men there are lifers. John's not like them. They'll know that. Once he's on the inside, we won't be able to protect him.

Lexie: I don't know why you thought coming down here would change anything.

Stefano: You mean I was wasting my time?

Lexie: And mine.

Stefano: Well, I'm sorry you feel that way.

Lexie: I'm sure you are. Did you honestly think my reaction would be any different?

Stefano: Well... [Chuckles] I knew I was taking a chance by coming by here, but since my, uh, appointment was over so soon, I figured, "hey, why not take a shot?"

Lexie: What appointment?

Stefano: With Dr. Blanchard.

Lexie: Are you all right?

Stefano: I'm fine, really. Yes. You know, it's all about that diabetes business. You see now why I came by? Huh? I know what is in your heart, truly, Alexandra. And I know that you still feel that you are part of this family.

Lexie: You seem awfully sure of yourself.

Stefano: Well, look... [Sighs] Didn't you just stop everything for your brother and me when Giovanni disappeared, huh? I mean, you were there for us when we needed you.

Lexie: My nephew was missing. Anyone would have shown compassion, okay? Now, whether you and EJ deserve it or not, that's another matter.

Stefano: All right, look... you say that I have a heart that's just filled with secrets, all right? But I also have a heart that is filled with unbreakable love for you, Alexandra.

Lexie: Father, I-- I don't know what you expect me to say to that.

Stefano: You don't have to say anything... except realize the fact that you will have to deal with your love for me and for the family. As complicated as it is, there is a bond with us that will always be there, always.

Marlena: You don't need to remind me what John is going through. I face that reality every single day.

Bo: I'm sorry, Marlena. I don't mean to upset you.

Marlena: I know. I know you don't. I-I know you're just trying to plead your case. It's not an easy decision going to Stefano to ask for help.

Hope: Nobody knows better than we do what we're asking you to do here.

Marlena: It's not about me. It's about John. He's the one in a jail cell, away from his family, during the holidays.

Rafe: Listen, we all know what John's going through right now is not fair.

Marlena: But you don't know what I know... that every single day, all John thinks about is the people that have lost everything. I worry about him... and he worries about them.

Hope: You're in a position to put an end to his suffering.

Marlena: Yeah. If John knew about this note, he would say, "Tear it up. Forget that it ever existed." He would never take help from Stefano. He would never forget the past. And if it even meant his freedom, taking Stefano's help would kill him.

Hope: If you need more time--

Marlena: No, I don't. I know what I've got to do. Take it.

Hope: Marlena, please--

Marlena: Use it... to save John, please.

Hope: You won't regret this.

Marlena: I'm sure John will never understand why I did it. He'll be angry. He'll feel disappointed in me.

Bo: But he'll be free.

Marlena: At what price?

Hope: He'll know you did it out of love.

Marlena: Of course, it's out of love. Doesn't help him understand why I did it.

Hope: Marlena, you made the right decision.

Marlena: [Sighs]

Hope: You okay?

Marlena: N-- I need a minute.

Carrie: Rafe?

Rafe: Yeah?

Carrie: What happened? Did Marlena decide? Is she gonna let us use the card?

Rafe: Yes.

Carrie: [Gasps] Thank God! [Laughs]

Hope: Now all we have to do is convince Stefano to honor his promise to Gran.

Bo: Got our work cut out for us there.

Hope: Can't let John or Marlena down. We got to make this happen.

Lexie: I want to have a relationship with you, Father, okay? I want us to get past... what's gone on between us. I mean, you're my father. I-I love you.

Stefano: Well, God knows I love you too.

Lexie: I know you do. This is what you do. You come here offering all of your--your apologies and your... affection, knowing full well that I'll forgive you. And then when I do, you just go right off again and do exactly as you please.

Stefano: Alexandra--

Lexie: No, no, no. No, no. Don't "Alexandra" me... okay? I saw the news... laced with accusations that EJ was making about my husband... saying that Abe's not up to the job of being mayor... how he hasn't been honest with the people of Salem and how he's compromised himself because of his friendship with John Black. Even EJ seemed to have forgotten something.

Stefano: And what is that?

Lexie: Abe is my husband... my family. That's who you went after, okay? Not just some opponent in a campaign. So, no, Father, I will not forgive or forget. You see... along with inheriting your optimism... I have also inherited your instinct to protect the people I love. When you go against my husband... you go against me. Until you realize that... we have no relationship. Good-bye.

[Door closes]

Melanie: Dad. Dad.

Daniel: Yeah?

Melanie: Hi. Will you take a picture of us by the tree?

Daniel: Yes, I absolutely will.

Melanie: Thank you very much.

Daniel: All right, get over there.

Both: Okay.

Melanie: Are we centered?

Maggie: Yes.

Daniel: Yes, you're centered. I got the tree! Well, all right, hold on.

Maggie: Okay, fine.

Daniel: I got the whole tree. Now, there you go. A little less talking, bigger smiles--here we go. Got it.

Maggie: Thank you.

Melanie: Thanks.

Maggie: Oh, wow.

Melanie: I could probably look at this tree all day.

Daniel: You could.

Maggie: Yes, you could. Yes, you could. But then we wouldn't get any of our shopping done.

Melanie: Oh! I have a small confession to make. I-I'm done with my shopping.

Maggie: What? How?

Melanie: Well, since I work at the spa, I thought I'd give everyone a certificate.

Daniel: Lame. That's bad.

Melanie: "Lame"?

Maggie: Oh, that is so not fair.

Melanie: Yeah, uh-huh. You don't think Victor would like a couples massage? I know you would like one.

Daniel: I would like one.

Maggie: Uh, sweetheart, no, really, I don't think that a couples massage is Victor's idea of a good time.

Melanie: Oh.

Maggie: Mm-hmm.

Melanie: Well, then it looks like I have some more shopping to do.

Daniel: Looks like you do.

Melanie: Do we want to--you want to start over there, and we'll work our way over?

Maggie: Sure. Let's go. Let's go!

Melanie: Are you coming?

Daniel: What? No, no, I'm good. Actually, I got a post-op patient I got to to check on. You guys--you have fun, all right?

Melanie: You sure?

Daniel: I'm positive. I'll check in with you later.

Melanie: Bye.

Daniel: See you.

Maggie: Whew, I didn't think he'd ever leave. No, no, no, no. Now's your time to help me pick a perfect gift for him.

Melanie: Mm, I can do that.

Maggie: Okay, let's go. Okay, now, where should we start--maybe sporting goods?

Melanie: Yeah.

Maggie: Okay, let's try that. [Sighs happily]

Melanie: Well, you know, my dad's actually pretty easy to shop for. Rope necklace, maybe a little pinkie ring, a case of energy drinks--he loves those.

Maggie: You know, if you don't mind, I think I'll wait for his birthday for the energy drinks.

Melanie: Or never buy him... a case of energy drinks.

Maggie: Good idea.

Melanie: Oh, no.

Maggie: What?

Melanie: You can see our picture is--is kind of blurry in front of the tree.

Maggie: Well, that's okay. We'll just take another one when your father gets back. Or... we'll get someone to take a picture of all three of us.

Melanie: Our first family Christmas photo.

Maggie: [Chuckles] Are you sure your father won't mind?

Melanie: Why would he mind?

Maggie: Oh. Well, I don't want him to think, like, I'm forcing him into feeling like we're a family just because it's Christmas.

Melanie: Stop that. Haven't you seen the way he's been acting around you? A little hug when we got here, a little hug when we left-- he's changed his mind.

Maggie: I guess. I just don't want to read too much into it. But I have noticed, yes, that he has been more open around me lately.

Melanie: Because he's finally realizing what I've known all along--that life is better with you in it.

Maggie: Oh, sweetheart, I love you.

Melanie: I love you more. I love you more.

Lexie: I thought I told-- Daniel, hi. Um, sorry. I thought you were someone else.

Daniel: No, is this a bad time? 'Cause I can come back later.

Lexie: Oh, no, no, no, no. Come--come on in. I'm--I'm glad you're here, as a matter of fact. I have your test results back.

Daniel: Already?

Lexie: Yeah, I put a rush on them.

Daniel: That anxious, huh?

Lexie: Hmm, yeah. But good news, so you can relax.

Daniel: It's good news?

Lexie: Mm. While you do carry a genetic marker associated with myasthenia gravis, you are not afflicted with the disease itself.

Daniel: Are you sure?

Lexie: Positive. You and Melanie are in the clear. I thought that's what you wanted to hear. So why don't you seem relieved?

Daniel: Well, because now I don't know what the hell is going on.

Lexie: What are you talking about?

Daniel: I'm going to tell you something, and I'm not telling you as a colleague or as a friend. Do you understand?

Lexie: So you're asking for doctor-patient confidentiality?

Daniel: Yes.

Stefano: What can I do for you?

Hope: We're calling in a favor, Stefano.

Stefano: [Sighs] "Please extend to the bearer of this card every courtesy that would be afforded to Stefano DiMera himself." We already talked about this, and as far as your grandmother goes--

Hope: No, no, no. I don't care. This isn't about the past anymore. It's about the present.

Stefano: Would you kindly get to your point?

Bo: Whatever you are, you're a man of your word. You don't make a promise like that easily.

Stefano: Well, assuming I'm the one who made it.

Hope: Oh, we know you did. And now you're honor-bound to make good on it.

Stefano: If I want to. What do you expect me to do?

Hope: You're gonna free John Black.

Stefano: This nothing but a piece of paper. Do you understand? It's not a card that gets you out of jail free.

Hope: John Black is innocent! You know it, we know it-- just like we know you have the ability to exonerate him.

Stefano: I don't have to do a damn thing... least of all with this.

Hope: I am sure that you remember why you gave this card to my grandmother. It was out of gratitude, Stefano, for helping to save EJ's life. So don't act like this was some meaningless gesture.

Bo: We do know the enormity of what we're asking you to do.

Hope: But we also know what Gran did for EJ holds just as much weight--no, correction, I'm sorry--so much more.

Stefano: [Sighs] Look, even if this is worth what you think it is-- all right?-- It was given to Alice. Do you understand? Alice, not you.

Hope: But the card clearly says "courtesies will be extended to the bearer."

Bo: And the bearer happens to be Hope right now.

Hope: Do this, and the debt between our families will be gone.

Stefano: You overestimate my reach.

Hope: Never.

Stefano: John has already pled guilty, hmm? There is nothing you can do to save him.

Hope: Unless someone with influence and real power steps up... someone like you.

Maggie: You think Daniel will like it?

Melanie: Yeah, way better than the rope necklace I suggested.

[Both chuckle]

Maggie: You know, I don't know anyone who loves being a surgeon like Daniel. And I've known a lot of them.

Melanie: Well, it's kind of his life, huh?

Maggie: Mm-hmm. Well, then I guess they were meant for him.

Daniel: It's been happening for a while. I don't know what's causing it, but I do know it could cost me everything. When Melanie and I decided to get these tests done, we just figured better safe than sorry. But then I started getting these--these tremors.

Lexie: And you naturally assumed it was M.G.

Daniel: Made the most sense to me... till I saw this thing. And if I don't have this sickness, if I don't have this disease, I can't explain what's happening to me.

Lexie: Tell me about the tremors.

Daniel: All right, I'll tell you about it. They come, and they go.

Lexie: There's no specific trigger?

Daniel: No, there's not. One minute, I'm fine. The next minute, I'm shoving my hands in my pockets, you know, trying to hide the shaking from Maggie and Melanie.

Lexie: [Sighs] So you haven't told them about it?

Daniel: No. No, no, no, no. No.

Lexie: Well, Daniel, don't you think that maybe you should?

Daniel: No, because I want to be the first one to know what's going on here, and I thought these test results could clear some things up for me, but you know what it does? It just give me more questions.

Lexie: [Sighs] Well, I mean, listen, at least one question was answered. You don't have M.G., Okay? I mean, that's--that's good news. That's a good thing, right?

Daniel: No, no, I get that. I do. Believe me, no, I understand I'm a very lucky person in that respect, but I am right back to square one. I know nothing.

Lexie: Listen, whatever you need me to do, I'll do it, okay? I'll--I'll run every test in the book, whatever.

Daniel: Okay. [Scoffs] Well, I may need you to do more than that. I may need you to cover for me... here at the hospital.

Lexie: How?

Daniel: Lexie, I'm a surgeon. That's what I do. And I cut, and I can't do it if I--if my hands are shaking. And what if I have a tremor in the middle of a--

Lexie: I understand.

Daniel: Okay, I'm going to, uh... I'm gonna pull myself out of surgical rotation... because I can't risk it. I can't risk it. I mean, what if something happens? And not only could I lose my career, but a patient could lose their life.

Lexie: For what it's worth, I think you're being very brave.

Daniel: Well, I don't really have much of a choice, do I?

Lexie: Well, I've known you for a while now. I know what being a surgeon means to you.

Daniel: Yeah.

Lexie: Oh, Daniel, I am so sorry. This must hurt like hell.

Melanie: I got to be honest. I didn't think you would ever slow down from shopping.

Maggie: Oh, I don't know. I guess I just wanted to slow things down a bit and have a cup of hot chocolate and talk.

Melanie: Talk about what?

Maggie: You. You're very upbeat and very positive.

Melanie: Well, is that a bad thing? It's the holiday season.

Maggie: No, it's wonderful. But it's also just been a few days since you had a very real, very terrifying ordeal. Now, have you really put all that behind you so quickly, or would you like to talk to someone about it?

Melanie: I'm busted.

Maggie: Mm.

Melanie: Yeah, uh, it's hard to go back to normal, especially at night. [Clears throat] I can't seem to turn my brain off.

Maggie: Yeah. I know how that can be. That was like me all the time after Mickey died.

Melanie: I made an appointment to talk to Dr. Evans.

Maggie: Good for you. Marlena is wonderful. I think she'll be very helpful to you.

Melanie: It's weird, you know, to be in that room and think, "this is it. This how I'm gonna die."

Maggie: Oh, sweetheart.

Melanie: But--but I didn't. I didn't die. I-I am here, and I get to do things like this with you.

Maggie: Well, I'm very flattered. You know, you don't have to talk about this if you don't want to, but I get a sense that there's still something that you haven't told me about what happened.

Melanie: You're right. [Clears throat] There is.

Marlena: Okay, this is all the documentation I found about my trip with John to Paris. You'll see it's months away from when that photo was dated.

Carrie: Oh, these would be good for us to have to counteract the prosecution's timeline.

Rafe: Well, hopefully, we're not even gonna need this stuff.

Marlena: Well, I'm so glad you two can be so positive about this.

Carrie: You okay with it, or does it make you want to kick us out?

Marlena: No, no, I'm just so glad to see that you believe so strongly in how much this paperwork can help us.

Carrie: Good.

Marlena: I wish I believed that Stefano would stand by his own word.

[Cell phone rings]

Carrie: Oh, is that them?

Marlena: Oh, no, no, it's the university. They--they offered me a job. I guess they'd like an answer pretty soon.

Carrie: They offered you a job?

Marlena: Yes, they'd like me to head the psychiatric residency program.

Carrie: That's great. You would be perfect.

Rafe: Wow. Have you given them a decision yet?

Marlena: No, no, there's just way too much up in the air right now. I can't think about anything that far down the road.

Carrie: It would be fantastic if you said yes. And I know I mentioned it before, but Austin and I will be staying in Salem.

Marlena: I know. I'm so happy about that.

Carrie: Well, a huge part of the reason is because Austin was offered a job at the university too. You two could be colleagues.

Marlena: Yes, that would be so nice.

Rafe: Hey, don't worry about it--they're gonna call. We knew going into this that Stefano wasn't going to give up without a fight.

Stefano: I'm curious about something now.

Hope: What?

Stefano: The lengths that you are willing to go to help John Black. I mean, what's in it for you?

Hope: Excuse me?

Stefano: I mean, look, you have this card, right? You could do anything you wanted with it.

Hope: Such as?

Stefano: Such as you could... help with the future of your family, but instead you are putting all your energy in helping John Black.

Bo: You know... stop trying to change the subject.

Stefano: Doesn't it bother you that your wife is putting all her energy into helping another woman's husband?

Hope: [Scoffs] John... is family.

Stefano: Ah, yes, he's family. I suppose there's no lingering of the--the feelings you had for each other in the past, huh? [Chuckles smugly] But then again, his marriage isn't something that ever got in your way, was it?

Hope: [Scoffs] A dollar?

Bo: That was it.

Hope: It was a bigger bet, but thank you.

Bo: We had a bet on how long it would take you to go there. You're getting predictable in your old age.

Stefano: I didn't realize that I had to entertain you.

Hope: Enough. I'm tired of the games. You're going to help John. Yes or no?

Melanie: So the--you know, I-I wasn't alone. Chad was there with me.

Maggie: Yeah, but he must have been as afraid as you were.

Melanie: Sure, but the thing is, you know, when you think you're not gonna survive something, you start saying things.

Maggie: What kind of things?

Melanie: About your feelings--you know, things that you would never say otherwise.

Maggie: I see.

Melanie: I think it's pretty obvious what I told him. Right? That I have feelings for him. [Sighs] That sounds so wrong just saying it to you.

Maggie: Why?

Melanie: Because he's dating Abigail.

Maggie: Is that why you never said anything before now?

Melanie: Of course. She's my best friend. I don't want to hurt her. The thing is, we thought those guys weren't gonna let us go, and I was freaked out, and Chad was trying to be strong for me. It j--it just popped out.

Maggie: So what did he say?

Melanie: Well, I wish he would have laughed at me, you know, or said I was being ridiculous.

Maggie: But that's not what happened.

Melanie: Nope, he said he had feelings for me too.

Maggie: Oh, my. Well, that's quite a confession to make.

Melanie: We did think we were dying. Now...

Maggie: "Now"? So what are you gonna do about it? Have you two talked about it?

Melanie: No. We haven't had any time alone, and when--when we did get to talk, Abigail came in.

Maggie: Well, you know, she is a part of this. I mean, her life is gonna be affected if you and Chad act on your feelings.

Melanie: That would be totally selfish of me.

Maggie: Yeah, I can't really answer that for you.

Melanie: [Sighs] Maggie, it's even more complicated than you think, because Abigail... [Clears throat] I love Abigail, and Chad loves her too, you know? But the problem is I don't know if I can stop my feelings for Chad, and I don't... I don't know if I want to.

Daniel: I can get Dr. Schulman to do next week's hernia repair.

Lexie: I'll take your on-calls. What?

Daniel: It's Sally Dunn, 52, found a lump in her breast two days ago. Biopsy was inconclusive. She's a friend of Maggie's. She's alone. She's terrified. And she asked me if I would do the necessary exploratory surgery.

Lexie: I'm sorry.

Daniel: No, don't be, because this is why I got into medicine. And, Lexie, if I can't operate, my career is over.

Lexie: Okay, stop it. Do not go there, all right? Let's have a little faith in modern medicine, okay?

Daniel: No, no, you're right. No, I'll stay positive. That's what I need to do. I tell my patients that all the time, right?

Lexie: Mm-hmm.

Daniel: It's just gonna be a lot easier when I get the answers.

Lexie: And we will get them.

Marlena: I meant to ask about my boy. How's will? How's he doing?

Rafe: Oh, well, well, he's a little shaken up over the situation with the website, but... he seems to be doing all right. I think it's 'cause he's got a break from school right now.

Marlena: How are things at home--any better?

Rafe: You mean with Sami? Well, will seems to be avoiding her--says it cuts down on the fighting. On the tension? [Chuckles] Not so much.

Marlena: Yeah, he's talked to me a bit about that.

Rafe: Oh, really? What'd he say?

Marlena: Oh, uh... nothing specific. I just know that he's sorting out some very complicated feelings. It's been going on for a while.

Rafe: Yeah. I wish he'd talk to us about it, let us help him. I just don't think that's gonna happen.

Marlena: I have a little bit of a thought.

Rafe: Oh, yeah? What's that?

Marlena: Well, I don't want to give you advice, uh, but I was wondering, what if I were to invite him to stay here?

Rafe: Stay here?

Marlena: Mm-hmm.

Rafe: You mean as in move in with you?

Marlena: I do. I do. I-I have lots of space, and, uh, well, it would get him away from the house, and then both of them could cool off a little bit.

Rafe: You sure that's what you'd want?

Marlena: Well, I-I'm afraid it might cause friction with Sami, you know? I don't want her to think that I'm interfering with her family. I also don't her to think that I'm judging her as a parent.

Rafe: Well, I know that's not what you're doing.

Marlena: But it's about will.

Rafe: Yeah.

Marlena: I'm thinking about him. And I'd like my whole family to be happy again.

Stefano: You want an answer? Fine. I'll give you an answer. The answer is no. I am not gonna help you or John. As far as your grandmother is concerned, I'll take care of that.

Hope: Why not?

Stefano: Because what you are asking for is impossible.

Hope: Even for a man as powerful and connected as you, Stefano? I find that very difficult to believe.

Bo: I should have known you'd pull something like this. You don't care that Mrs. H saved your little boy.

Stefano: That is your opinion.

Bo: A real man would do anything he could to repay a debt like this.

Stefano: Hmm. Would you please help yourselves out?

Hope: You want us to go.

Stefano: Wasn't I clear?

Hope: No, what I mean is you want us to get frustrated, fed up so we just forget this whole thing. But what you seem to forget... is how well I know you too, Stefano. Your family, your code of honor mean everything to you. So you may act like you can just, um... brush this off... but you and I both know this promise you made to my grandmother is something you must absolutely honor. It seems like for every anti-aging problem,

Maggie: Oh, father's here. Father's here. Hi.

Daniel: Hey, what's going on?

Maggie: Nothing.

Daniel: Nothing?

Maggie: Nothing.

Daniel: Nothing--there was something on the table...

Maggie: No.

Daniel: What's going on?

Melanie: This--I just have an itch.

Daniel: You have an itch?

Melanie: On my back.

Daniel: Really? There's nothing there at all?

Melanie: Yeah. No.

Daniel: Okay, come on, what's going on?

Melanie: What? You--you know better than to ask questions like that around Christmas.

Daniel: Really?

Melanie: Yeah.

Daniel: Well, that's a rule that I ignore.

Melanie: Ignore?

Daniel: Okay, what is it? I'm not gonna ignore it. You're hiding something clearly behind your back.

Maggie: No. No.

Daniel: Really? Okay. Is it a... I don't know--a present, say, for me?

Maggie: Maybe.

Melanie: Maggie.

Daniel: No, no. See, now I want to know. I got to know.

Melanie: Stop that. She's not gonna tell you. You're not gonna tell him. Don't give him a hint.

[All talking at once]

Maggie: No, he doesn't have to guess.

Melanie: Maggie...

Maggie: And he doesn't have to wait till Christmas.

Daniel: Shah!

Maggie: Here, open it. I'm terrible at waiting too.

Melanie: Bleh.

Daniel: Maggie.

Maggie: Merry Christmas... to the best surgeon I know.

Melanie: [Softly] I agree.

Daniel: They're, uh-- they're better than great. That's the best birthday present/Christmas present I ever got. Thank you. Thank you.

Carrie: At least there will be time to take a new one-- just the two of you, sitting over there on the couch, arms around each other.

Marlena: Our future in Stefano's hands again. How did this ever happen?

Stefano: This... [Clears throat] Request of yours... I'm not sure that I can access the, uh, information that you want. I mean, what you ask... requires more. And I don't have that. You see, this is not like something that you can turn on and off, like a faucet.

Hope: "A faucet"? "Access information"? You're not making a lot of sense, Stefano.

Stefano: We're done here.

Bo: You haven't told us enough.

Stefano: That's what it's gonna have to be.

On the next "Days of Our Lives" --

Kate: Santa has come for you early this year, Sami. I'm here to change your life.

Hope: Maybe it's John who didn't have access to something.

Carrie: Oh, my God, I think I know.
