Maggie: Daniel?

Daniel: Hey, what are you guys doing here?

Victor: Looking for you.

Maggie: Lexie said you were here.

Daniel: Yeah, yeah, I'm just, uh, consulting with her on a case.

Victor: That him?

Daniel: No, that would be a her.

Maggie: Is that my friend sally Dunn, there?

Daniel: No, no. Why?

Maggie: She was supposed to have exploratory surgery, and you were supposed to be her surgeon. And the hospital called yesterday, and told her--

Daniel: That, uh, someone else is going to do the surgery. Yeah, I know, and I understand that she's nervous. But she's in excellent hands, and you don't need to worry about her.

Victor: The person we're worried about is you.

Maggie: Is it because you have myasthenia gravis? Did I do that to you?

Hope: Okay. But if anything changes your mind about that, you have my number. Bye.

Bo: Nothing?

Hope: Nothing. That was my fifth internet provider in the Lugano area, and he swears there wasn't an internet or cell phone outages on the dates that I gave him.

Bo: Yeah. Basic black invoices for internet service says the same thing.

Rafe: Oh, fascinating reading, though.

Bo: Oh, yes, it is.

Hope: Listen. You know what? Marlena's going to be back pretty soon from visiting with John. I really want to have some good news for her.

Rafe: Yeah, well, we better. Or else they're going to have one lousy Christmas.

Bo: Just keep at it. All we have to do is come up with one day when John made a transaction and didn't have internet access.

Hope: And we blow the government's case sky high. And John will be free.

Carrie: Oh, goodness.

Austin: For love.

Carrie: Oh, goodness, you read my mind. And the candy cane's a nice touch.

Austin: Well, you've been working so hard, I didn't know if you still remembered that it's almost Christmas? I put an extra shot of espresso in there too, 'cause I know that you were up so late with your law books.

Carrie: Mmm. Do you know how many statutes there are governing internet access?

Austin: Mmm. I can imagine. When do you meet with, um, Bo and hope, and Rafe again?

Carrie: As soon as I finish this coffee. And I think I'm going to stop at St. Luke's on the way and say a little prayer, light a candle, and hope for a Christmas miracle.

Austin: I'm praying too. [Kisses] Hey, Chad! Chad's here.

Chad: Hey! Merry Christmas, guys.

Carrie: Hi.

Austin: You doing some last-minute shopping?

Chad: Uh, yeah. I kind of got behind after our little adventure in the warehouse.

Austin: Yeah. Well, I hear you.

Carrie: Is that from the jewelry store?

Chad: It is. Actually it's--it's earrings for Abigail.

Carrie: Can I see, please?

Chad: Uh, okay, okay. Um.

Carrie: [Gasps] Ooh. Those are beautiful.

Austin: Nice.

Chad: Thank you, thank you.

Carrie: And they look expensive.

Chad: Well, I bought her the matching necklace for the night she got the journalism award, but, uh--

Austin: You lost it when those creeps grabbed you, right?

Chad: Yeah, now the police are holding on to it as evidence and I'm not sure when I'll get it back, so--

Carrie: Oh. Well, I'm sure she'll understand. Especially when she opens these. Well done.

Chad: Thank you.

Carrie: Aw.

Austin: I hope you're this excited about the new toaster I got you.

Carrie: Ha ha. Excuse me?

Austin: Oh, I can't believe that just slipped out.

Carrie: Uh-huh. Very funny. Actually, I'd love a new toaster.

Austin: Yeah? Now see that, Chad? You could have got away with spending a lot less.

Carrie: Uh-huh--to go in our new house.

Austin: Maybe not.

Carrie: [Laughs] No, seriously, I know she'll love those. Especially because they're from the guy she adores.

Chad: I don't know. Are you sure it's not too much? I mean, it's kind of--

Carrie: Oh, no. You know, my sister used to say that guys would only give you jewelry when they're feeling guilty about something, but I don't buy that. I think that's ridiculous. And I'm sure Abigail will too.

Austin: Yeah. It's not like you guys have anything to worry about there, right?

Abigail: Melanie--

[Chime, clank]

Melanie: Hey.

Abigail: Hi. I've been standing here for like forever. Well, at least a minute.

Melanie: Oh, I'm sorry. Just, I have a lot on my mind.

Abigail: Yeah, I know. Tell me about it. That's why I called you.

Melanie: What's up?

Abigail: You know what's up. What we were talking about before.

Melanie: Oh! The guy you have a crush on.

Abigail: Yeah. I don't know, I just--I feel so awful about it. You know, I mean Chad is-- Chad's a great guy, and he has been so good to me, especially since my dad came back.

Melanie: Yeah, he's a good guy.

Abigail: I know. But... I don't know, I mean, this other guy barely even knows I'm alive. Still, whenever I'm around him, whenever I even think about him, my heart beats a little faster. But this is crazy. I mean, I have to forget about him, right? There's no hope.

Melanie: Sure. You know, if you think you can do that.

Abigail: I-I don't know if I can forget about him. You know, I mean, I can try. In my head, I just keep thinking this is crazy, this is ridiculous, but then--

Melanie: Your heart starts beating faster and faster and faster. Maybe you should listen to it.

Abigail: Trust me, it will never, ever work out.

Melanie: Why?

Abigail: There's just too many things in the way.

Melanie: Do you want to share?

Abigail: Yeah, I do, but I-- I shouldn't. The point is, I would be breaking up with Chad, this guy who really gets me and cares about me, for--

Melanie: A guy that makes your heart pound?

Abigail: Yeah, but what does that matter, if I don't do the same for him?

Melanie: Well, now it kind of just sounds like you're keeping Chad around 'cause he's a sure thing.

Abigail: Whoa. That's--that's not fair.

Melanie: Sorry. No, that-- that came out wrong.

Abigail: Okay.

Melanie: Just have a lot on my mind. Like I told you, my dad.

Abigail: Mm-hmm. How is he doing?

Melanie: After he broke up with your mom? Not great.

Abigail: Yeah. Well, breaking up sucks, but doing it a Christmastime... really sucks.

Chad: Actually... maybe I do feel a little guilty.

Carrie: About what?

Chad: Well, I mean... those guys taking over the website, Abigail and my friends being in danger because of it.

Austin: No, you have to know that none of that was your fault.

Chad: Yeah, I mean, I guess you're right. But, I mean, if you weren't there to save her--I mean, you saved Abigail's life. I--

Austin: No, I was just able to surprise the guy, that's all. You would have done the exact same thing had you been in my position.

Carrie: Oh, face it, reed, you're a hero.

Austin: No, Chad was a hero too.

Chad: I know. Hey. But you were there for Abigail, so if there's ever anything you need, just let me know.

Austin: Pay it forward, man.

Carrie: Aw, well, I have to go--I have to meet Bo, hope and Rafe. So, it was nice to see you. Merry Christmas.

Chad: Same here, merry Christmas.

Carrie: Okay, and Austin, um, the jewelry store is right over there, just--

Austin: I'm well aware of where the jewelry store is.

Carrie: Okay.

Austin: Thank you very much. You going to meet me for lunch?

Carrie: I'll do my best.

Chad: Uh-- [Clears throat]

Austin: I'm sorry about the public displays of affection, Chad, but... when my wife's around, I just, uh, I can't help it.

Chad: Yeah, there's no need to apologize. I mean, a guy who still feels that way about his wife after all these years? I and Carrie are both really lucky.

Austin: Yeah.

Rafe: Take a look at this.

[Keyboard keys click]

Bo: All those transfers of funds on the same day.

Rafe: Yep. And if we can prove that John didn't have internet access that day--

Hope: We'd be home free. I can't find a single provider to back it up.

Bo: Well--

Rafe: I keep having the same thoughts. This whole internet access idea, if that's what we're supposed to think it is... you know, was given to us by Stefano.

Bo: Yeah, and he might have just wanted us to be chasing our tails, stay out of his way.

Rafe: Well, that would fit his M.O., Wouldn't it?

Bo: It would.

Hope: I saw his face when we confronted him with that card he gave Gran. It got to him. Listen, guys, as difficult as it is to believe, I really do think that Stefano was trying to give us something we could use.

Bo: Well, I wish one of these internet providers would give us a lead. Then we'd have something to use. [Sighs]

Rafe: Wait a minute.

Bo: Hmm?

Rafe: I can't believe I didn't consider this before. I got it.

Daniel: Maggie... I don't have mg.

Maggie: You don't? You sure?

Daniel: I have the markers, but there's no evidence of the disease--none.

Maggie: Oh, my goodness! I have been so worried.

Victor: She has been.

Daniel: Why?

Maggie: Well-- well, because when Melanie got her test results, she told me right away, but then you-- you didn't say a word. And then when I heard you had cancelled on sally's surgery--

Victor: Scheduling conflict?

Maggie: You--you see I've just raved about you so much that she doesn't want anyone else.

Daniel: Okay, I would if I could.

Maggie: And I'm sure she would be willing to reschedule.

Daniel: I'm sure she would. No, she shouldn't wait. She really doesn't need to wait at all, okay? Look, I'm going to take myself out of surgical rotation just for the time being--that's it.

Maggie: Why? You love your work. And if you don't have mg, why would you...stop doing what you love?

Austin: I'd be lying to you if I told you that marriage was easy.

Chad: Yep, I've heard that one. I grew up watching my mom and a guy I thought was my dad... and they always just seemed so...miserable.

Austin: Mmm. I think what the secret is... is picking the right person to be in the trenches with. You could do that--you could handle whatever life sends your way.

Chad: Well, how do you know for sure when you found the right one?

Austin: Well, I'll tell you what don't do--is you don't go out there and look for the perfect woman. You look for somebody that fits you. Because no matter who you are, no matter who she is, you're going to go through a million changes together. But... when you find the one that will weather all the storms with you, you hold on to her... and you hold on to her with all you've got, because this is a very rare thing, my friend.

Chad: Yeah. I guess I know what you mean.

Abigail: I just kind of always thought this year it would be you and your dad, and me and my mom at Christmas, you know, having this great time.

Melanie: Yeah.

Abigail: And my dad came back.

Melanie: Hey. It's okay to be glad your dad's back.

Abigail: I know. And thank you for helping me to realize that, but--

Melanie: Yeah.

Abigail: Mel, you're the... best friend that I've always wanted, you know? You're the first good friend that I've made since I've been back in Salem. And now things are just so weird.

Melanie: We're good.

Abigail: Are you sure?

Melanie: Yeah. Yeah.

Abigail: Thanks. That really means a lot to me. Because, lord knows, I tell you everything, and I know... that you won't ever tell anyone, and you'll never let me down.

Melanie: Yeah, I'm something.

Abigail: Yes, you are. All right, I got to go get my shopping done.

Melanie: All right.

Abigail: Come here. Merry Christmas, best friend.

Carrie: Hi.

Hope: Hey.

Carrie: What's going on? Sorry I'm late.

Bo: Rafe's got this idea how to prove John didn't have internet access on the day a bunch of transfers went through.

Carrie: Ooh. But I thought the internet provider said there wasn't any break in service?

Rafe: Well, John says he was in paris when all those transactions took place.

Carrie: Okay, but that doesn't clear him--he still could've done it.

Rafe: Remember the demonstrations that took place in paris? The ones about immigration?

Carrie: I think I do. Yes.

Rafe: Okay, well, when similar demonstrations took place in the middle east, the government realized that social media was playing a part in organizing the crowd, and the--

Carrie: So they cut off the internet. Do you think the French government did the same thing that day?

Rafe: That's what I'm trying to find out.

Hope: Wait a minute. Haven't we already run the times on this and compared the outages?

Rafe: Well, for the official outages, yes. But I'm trying to find out about the unofficial ones.

Hope: Who are you calling?

Rafe: Uh, my buddy at Interpol. Let's hope he's still my buddy. Could be John's best chance.

Daniel: Oh, my god. You guys are spending your first married Christmas together here, and you don't need to be worrying about me.

Maggie: You're my son. I will worry if I want to.

Victor: Don't cross her. Now I'm going to pour you a nice tall scotch, and we're going to sit down, you're going to talk to us.

Maggie: Daniel, you wouldn't take yourself out of surgical rotation unless something is wrong--seriously wrong.

Daniel: Okay, okay. When I got tested for mg, it wasn't just because of the hereditary factors. I developed sort of, you know, just a tremor, you know, in my hands.

Victor: How long has this been going on?

Daniel: Just a couple weeks. You know, that's all. I'm sure it's just stress-related, that's all.

Maggie: God knows you had enough of that.

Daniel: Yeah, well, until I get an accurate diagnosis, I'm just going to take myself out of surgery--it's that simple.

Maggie: Oh, Daniel.

Victor: You seeing a neurologist? We'll fly in the best money can buy.

Daniel: No, no, no, no, no. Lexie's got a bunch of tests scheduled for me, and that should tell me if I need a specialist, okay? I mean, maybe I just, uh, need a vacation. I'm sure that's what it is, really.

Maggie: But it's definitely not mg?

Daniel: Mm-mm. No, it's definitely not.

Maggie: Okay, so then if it's something... medical, that can be treated, right?

Daniel: Right, okay. As Lexie said... "I firmly believe in the power of medicine."

Victor: I think he's telling us to calm down.

Maggie: And so we will. Because as far as we know, there's nothing to worry about, right?

Daniel: Right.

Carrie: So how long has it been since you called your friend at Interpol?

Rafe: Not that long.

Hope: Not that long? It feels like it's been three years.

Bo: Anybody else hungry? Fancy face, you want to raid the kitchen, see if there's any sandwich-making stuff?

Hope: Stuff? Sure.

Carrie: [Laughs] Oh, boy. So once again, you've come up with something that could help John.

[Both laugh]

Rafe: Yeah. Just hopes it works out.

Carrie: Ooh. I really... want you to know how much I appreciate all the time you've put in. You and Sami are renewing your vows tonight, right?

Rafe: Mmm.

Carrie: You must be awfully busy.

Rafe: Not really. Sami's all over that. It's all she thinks about these days.

Carrie: Is that a problem?

Rafe: No. No, I'm happy to be renewing our vows. It's just Christmas is usually a time she reserves for the kids.

Carrie: Not this year?

Rafe: No. I don't know why she's so consumed with this.

Austin: Because Carrie wants to spend Christmas with Marlena, you know, and I'd like to spend Christmas with my wife. No, mom, I promise! We have gifts for you. We're going to come by and drop them off. Yes, and we'll stay-- no. We'll stay for a while. I just don't know if we're going to be able to do the whole Christmas dinner thing, that's all. All right. Ma, I got to go. Love you. Abigail! Hey.

Abigail: Austin.

Austin: You just going to walk by and not say hello?

Abigail: I saw you there. I just thought...

Austin: You just thought what?

Chad: Oh!

Melanie: I'm sor--hi!

Chad: H-hey.

Melanie: Hi.

Chad: Hi.

Melanie: Chad, hi.

Chad: Melanie.

Melanie: Uh, no, my, uh, phone keeps beeping in here. I can't find it because my bag--

Chad: I, uh, that's fine. Just--just stick around and have a cup of coffee with me.

Melanie: I've--I've had a lot, probably too much. I also have to--I have a--

Chad: Okay, okay, cool. Um... it's just that, um... don't you think we ought to talk about what happened?

Melanie: Yeah, yeah.

Daniel: All right, I said I wouldn't be talking about it, and here I am just blah, blah, blah, talking about it. So I'm sorry about that. I'm sorry.

Victor: You must have some idea what this thing is.

Daniel: Mm-mm. No, I do not have any idea. I mean, my mother had a tremor hand. But then, um, not really biologically related to her, am I?

Maggie: You've had so much thrown at you in the last couple of months.

Daniel: Uh, you know what? Really, I'm a big boy. It's nothing. It's nothing. And the thing for me is, I just usually, you know, when I get this complicated stress, I, uh, put in a long day at the O.R.

Victor: You know, you can still practice medicine without doing surgery.

Daniel: Mm-hmm. I know that. I know.

Maggie: Does Jennifer know about this?

Daniel: No, she does not know--please do not tell her.

Maggie: Daniel.

Daniel: No, I do not want her knowing about this. I don't. I don't want anybody's pity. I don't like that. I hate it. So no, not a word.

Victor: Fine. But you're still coming for Christmas.

Daniel: No. My plans for Christmas this year are... to spend a nice, quiet day... all alone.

Carrie: Have you talked to Sami about why she's so anxious to renew your vows?

Rafe: Yeah. She's given me her reasons.

Carrie: But you're not buying it.

Rafe: There's something else going on.

Carrie: Well, a lot's changed for her in the last few months. She has a new job with a lot of responsibilities. And, I don't know, maybe this is her way of showing you that you still mean the world to her.

Rafe: Well, she doesn't have to prove that to me.

Carrie: Or maybe it's her way of thinking, you know, when Johnny went missing--thinking the worst and blaming you. And now she wants to get up in public and let everyone know that her marriage and her family survived.

Rafe: Yeah, everything you say is true. Just...

Carrie: The timing?

Rafe: Yeah, not--not just that it's Christmas, that will's going through something right now--he's giving Sami a really hard time and--

Carrie: Mm-hmm. But he is a teenager--kind of comes with the territory.

Rafe: Yeah, I know, I know. It's not just that, it's just-- now is not the time to make him come to something like this. And Sami would have seen that before.

Carrie: Before what?

Rafe: I don't know. I don't know.

Austin: I was going to call you.

Abigail: You were?

Austin: Yeah.

Austin: I want to know how you've been doing since the warehouse.

Abigail: Oh, I'm--I'm fine.

Austin: No, Abigail, you don't have to say that. If you've been having a hard time with what happened, I want you to talk to me.

Chad: I haven't seen much of you since the, uh, the whole, you know--

Melanie: Yeah, I know. I been--I been busy.

Oh, and any time I have seen you, I've been with Abigail, and it's...kind of hard to know what to say, you know.

Melanie: Well, yeah. I-I got a second job, so then you'll never have to run into me.

Chad: Oh, well, I mean, come on--you're Abigail's best friend, I'm her--

Melanie: Boyfriend--you're her boyfriend.

Chad: I--you--we'll... see each other. Uh--

Melanie: Look, I know that the kiss, and that stuff we said... it only happened because we were freaked out.

Chad: But it happened. And I don't really know what to do about it.

Melanie: Why do you have to do anything about it?

Chad: 'Cause I don't want to hurt Abigail. And I really don't want you to get hurt.

Melanie: Um, we don't have to say anything to Abigail. You know, what she doesn't know won't hurt her.

Chad: Yeah.

Melanie: Everything that happened...I don't know. It doesn't mean anything.

Daniel: Mother, I'm sorry. I feel bad...y-you invited me for Christmas dinner, and I didn't even say thank you. I'm just sitting here whining about my problems.

Maggie: Uh, listen. If you can't tell us what's wrong in your life, who can you tell?

Victor: And you haven't exactly had what I'd call a banner year.

Daniel: You noticed. But there have been a few, uh, bright spots...this year.

Maggie: You know, when I'm scared about something... I try to imagine... how I will combat, um, the worst-case scenario. And then, of course, when it inevitably turns out to be something not so bad... I know I've already whipped it.

Victor: And then there's my technique. I just pretend it isn't happening.

Daniel: There you go. I like that. I will get through this. I will. I'll get myself through this. I'm just not sure who I'm going to be after I do that.

Maggie: I know. You'll be the same loving, caring physician and man... that you are right now.

Hope: Hey. Do you think maybe your friend went on vacation? That's why he's not calling back?

Rafe: [Sighs] Could be.

Bo: Carrie, you're not eating?

Carrie: I told Austin, I would try to meet him for lunch. But I hate to leave before we hear from Interpol.

Rafe: Well, if my guy calls back and tells us what we want to hear, you are going to be busy. Go meet Austin.

Carrie: Okay. But you will call me if you hear anything. Mwah!

Hope: Of course.

Both: Merry Christmas! Mwah!

Bo: Merry Christmas.

Both: Merry Christmas.

Hope: Love you, Carrie. Bye. Drive safely.

Carrie: Bye. Thank you.

Rafe: Hope, you want a refill?

Hope: No, no. I'm good. Thanks.

Bo: Yeah, thanks. Got two hands? You know, I have never understood why you can't eat when you're nervous.

Hope: Hmm? Oh, I-I'm okay.

Bo: No, you're not.

Hope: I'm not nervous.

Bo: There's been something on your mind ever since we left Stefano's place. And it's not the case.

Hope: You know what it is.

Bo: Oh, come on, fancy face. Let's not go there.

Hope: Brady, how can I not? How could I not go there? Why did that bastard have to bait you about me and John?

Abigail: You were worried about me?

Austin: Those two guys terrorized you. That's not something that you just blow off.

Abigail: I know. I know. I kept telling myself, "this isn't really happening."

Austin: Yeah, but it did happen. Have you been talking to your parents about it?

Abigail: They know about it. But I kind of played it down. My dad, he's been through hell, and my mom's got a lot of other stuff going on right now.

Austin: Yeah, well, I want you to know that you can talk to me about it, and you don't have to play anything down.

Abigail: You already saved my life, okay? You don't have to do anything more.

Austin: Well, there's an old Chinese belief that says if you save somebody's life, you become responsible for that person.

Abigail: You're not Chinese. And I don't want you to feel responsible for me, okay?

Austin: Okay. Maybe I'm putting this too strongly. But you were in big trouble. And I just so happened to be there, and that makes you very special to me. So if you need someone to talk to, you need anything at all, I'm here, okay?

Abigail: Thank you. That really means a lot.

Melanie: I mean, we thought we were going to die together.

Chad: Oh, totally. That would make anyone say that stuff.

Melanie: That, you know, that they would never say normally.

Chad: Right, right. Obviously, obviously.

Melanie: Ever. So... I know how much you love Abigail. And I'm not going to screw stuff up with you two.

Chad: I just, um... I just seem to end up kissing you...a lot. So...

Melanie: be fair, it's happened twice. And the first time, you thought I was Abigail. And, you know, the second time, you thought we were going to die.

Carrie: Uh, I mean, it's also you start hanging out with someone a lot... and start wondering what it would be like to kiss that person.

Melanie: Sure.

Chad: Yeah.

Melanie: But now we know. So, you know, we don't have to do it again.

Chad: Right.

Abigail: Here. So you now have a discussion board for your class, professor.

Austin: Excellent. Um, why exactly do I need one?

Abigail: Uh, well, you can, um--you can post the assignments there, and your students can email you, and they can post their reactions to the readings and stuff.

Austin: Right, I understand. But why can't they just do that in class?

Abigail: They can just do that in class. But it's like-- I don't know, it's more important if it's online.

Austin: Because they can compose their thoughts in writing or something? I don't-- why can't they just raise their hand and say "professor reed, I thought your lecture was extremely like boring," or something?

Abigail: I think this is going to help you.

Austin: Thank you.

Abigail: Yeah, please, it's the least I could do, since you saved my life.

Carrie: Hey, am I too late for lunch?

Austin: No.

Both: Mwah!

Carrie: Hi, Abigail.

Abigail: Hey.

Austin: Is that, uh-- is that it? Is that my Christmas present?

Carrie: Oh, you're going to love it. It's going to look perfect next to my shiny new toaster.

Austin: You know what? You keep that up, and you can buy your own lunch.

Carrie: Oh, come on. I'm starving.

Austin: I know. I am too.

Carrie: Thank you for waiting for me.

Austin: Mm-hmm. I would wait for you forever, my darling.

Abigail: I better get going.

Carrie: Not on my account.

Austin: No, Abigail just helped me set up a, uh, what's it called?

Abigail: Oh, a discussion board.

Austin: A discussion board for my class.

Carrie: Well, then, we have to buy you lunch. Besides, I want to hear about good old Salem U.

Austin: Okay?

Abigail: Are you sure you don't-- okay, all right, I'll stay.

Maggie: Daniel, do me a favor. Don't make up your mind about Christmas dinner, not now. Um, you know, if you decide to come at the last minute, that's not a problem.

Daniel: All right, thank you.

Victor: And just so you know... Philip and the baby will be staying in Chicago.

Daniel: I'll take that into consideration. You know, I know I'm sure I'm not real easy to talk to lately. Um, the fact you care does-- it means a lot to me. It really does.

Maggie: I'm beginning to realize that a mother of adult children--she just never stops worrying. She just learns when to keep her mouth shut. Just so you know... you can share anything with me.

Victor: You know, of course, there isn't anything we wouldn't do to help you.

Daniel: Thank you.

Victor: What does, uh, Melanie think about all this?

Maggie: [Sighs]

Victor: Oh, good god. You haven't even told her, have you?

Melanie: So, see, forget it all happened. It's all behind us. Feel better?

Chad: Yeah! Yeah, sure, we're-- sure, I'm glad we talked.

Melanie: Yeah! Clear the air. Make sure we're both on the same page. And I will--I'll never tell Abigail, ever.

Chad: Uh, Melanie, I never thought you would. I know you care about her as much as I do.

Melanie: Yeah. She's been through so much. What is that, by the way? That you've been carrying around?

Chad: Earrings. Uh, you want to see them?

Melanie: For Abigail?

Chad: Yes, yes.

Melanie: Yeah! Is it all wrapped up and ready to go?

Chad: No, you're fine, fine.

Melanie: Okay.

Chad: What do you think? What do you think?

Melanie: They're so pretty.

Chad: I got her the matching necklace for the, uh, the night of the, um...

Melanie: Yeah. Oh.

Chad: Thing we're... not going to talk about anymore.

Melanie: [Laughs]

Chad: Um, but I thought they would look great with her hair.

Melanie: Yeah, they will. They're gorgeous. She'll love them.

Chad: Thank you.

Melanie: And you.

Chad: I just want her to have a really good Christmas. And like you said, she's been through a lot since her... dad came back, so--

Melanie: If it's any consolation, she told me she never would have gotten through it all if it hadn't been for you.

Chad: Oh. Hmm.

Melanie: So we're good, right?

Chad: Yeah, yeah, we're good.

Bo: Why are you still thinking about what DiMera said?

Hope: Last Christmas... I didn't think you loved me anymore.

Bo: Oh, fancy face.

Hope: And we're a family again this Christmas. I don't want to be reminded about bad times.

Bo: Thing is, we've been through too many bad times. Positive side is we've made it through, and we are stronger than ever. We are still together, and that is never going to change.

Hope: Promise me.

Bo: I'll carve it in a tree again if that's what you'd like.

Hope: That's what I'd like.

Bo: Then I'll do it. I love you, Mrs. Brady.

Hope: And I love you. And I love our life now. And I'm sorry, okay? I'm sorry I-I ever mentioned what Stefano said.

Bo: Yeah, let's just forget that old scrooge.

Hope: He is a scrooge.

Bo: Yeah. We're going to have the best Christmas ever.

Hope: Ever.

[Cell phone rings]

Bo: Whoa! Hey! Phone--where is it?

Hope: Rafe!

Rafe: Hey, hey, hey.

Hope: Hurry up! Three rings. Pick up, quick. It's--go! Go.

Rafe: Hey, Charlie. Yeah. Merry Christmas. Did you understand my message? Okay, hold on a second, I need to write this down. Yeah. Wait, wait. All right. Go ahead. Give me what you got. Uh-huh.

Daniel: Why? Why would I say anything to Melanie?

Maggie: Because she's your daughter. She loves you, and she would want to know.

Daniel: No, she--

Victor: Dan, you've got to have people who you can talk to about this.

Daniel: Uh-huh...and it if was you, chatty Cathy, what would you do?

Victor: That's different.

Daniel: Exactly, exactly. You know, it's entirely possible that this could be nothing, maybe even something minor. Why would I get Melanie upset about something like that if I don't have to, all right? She's been through enough in her life. No more drama for her.

Maggie: He's got a point, Victor.

Victor: Yeah, what if she comes to work and she sees that you're not doing surgery?

Daniel: Oh, you know, I think she's taking a few days off. So hopefully, she won't hear about it. That'd be good. I'll tell you what. I'll tell you what. When I get the test results back, I'll tell her, okay? But why spoil her Christmas? Right?

Maggie: Just so you know, she's coming here for Christmas dinner. I'm just saying--

Daniel: Yeah, okay, okay, I'll think about it. I will.

Victor: Just stay positive, huh?

Maggie: I'll say prayers for you tonight at midnight mass.

Daniel: Thank you, thank you.

Maggie: See you tomorrow?

Daniel: She doesn't stop. Does she ever stop, really?

Maggie: I'll serve white wine.

Daniel: You've got white wine. Oh, okay--noted. She doesn't stop, does she?

Victor: You've got that right. Best thing that ever happened to me. Merry Christmas, Daniel.

Daniel: Same to you.

Maggie: [Sniffles]

Chad: All right goofball, what are you doing for Christmas?

Melanie: Well, I'm going to start the morning out with a little opening up presents with dad. Uh, then I'm going to go to Victor and Maggie's for Christmas dinner.

Chad: Oh, must be nice.

Melanie: Yeah, it is. You going to spend it with Abigail and her family?

Chad: Yeah, for a little bit. That's my first Horton Christmas.

Melanie: Ooh. Well, don't worry, they're good at it.

[Both laugh]

Chad: Well, I'm glad we talked.

Melanie: Yeah.

Chad: You know, I wouldn't want there to be any, you know, misunderstandings.

Melanie: No, we're totally clear. You love Abigail. And what happened between us...

Chad: So it's like it never happened.

Melanie: What never happened?

Chad: Right. Uh...

Melanie: Okay. It's the right thing to do.

Carrie: Did you know that Austin and I met while I was at Salem u?

No, I didn't.

Carrie: I was working at ballistic

Austin: Don't.

Carrie: Anyway, he came in, and I was like, "whoa."

Austin: Oh, you, what? You never told me this story.

Carrie: Oh, god, he so knew it.

Austin: No.

Carrie: I sold him a shirt, and he proceeded to try it on in front of me, and that was that.

Austin: I did not.

Carrie: You did.

Austin: And then her father freaked out on me.

Austin: Yeah, but it wasn't you, he just thought you were involved with the wrong people.

Austin: Right, which I was.

Carrie: Mainly, he knew that his little girl had found the one.

Abigail: Well, it's getting late, and I haven't done any of my Christmas shopping. So, um, thanks for lunch, you guys.

Austin: Our pleasure.

Carrie: Merry Christmas.

Rafe: You sure about the dates? Uh-huh. [Laughs] No, I owe you, man. Hey, happy holidays. Okay.

Bo: Did he just tell you what I think he told you?

Hope: Rafe.

Rafe: The French government did not shut down the internet because of the demonstrations.

Hope: Oh, god!

Rafe: They shut it down because they got Intel there was going to be a terrorist attack in the metro!

Hope: What?

Bo: On the same day?

Hope: Oh, my god! Have you got the exact times?

Rafe: There they are. Check them out.

Hope: Holy moly.

Bo: Yeah, John was in paris.

Hope: Where there was no internet or cell phone connection available. Which is exactly when the bank transfers went through.

Bo: You did it.

Rafe: No, we did it.

Hope: Oh, my god.

Rafe: Looks like John's going to have a pretty good Christmas after all.

Bo: Yeah!

Hope: Merry Christmas!

Bo: Whoo-hoo! Merry Christmas, John!

Hope: Merry Christmas!

Bo: Whew!
