JL fails to get a pun on the word toy, when he can't think of what you might get a child for Christmas. Chris jokingly suggests that John would buy them sheet music. JL admits that he once asked Santa for a collection of 1910s ragtime.

Chris: "I don't know if I'd say jokingly."

Chris drives right past the hotel, but doesn't feel like going back around to drop us off closer. He let's us out two blocks away after asking if this is all right. We say our goodbyes, and Chris and JL speed off into the night.
