"Away in a Manger" is the Christmas episode of the ABC sitcom Baby Talk, aired in the show's second season.
It is only six days until Mickey and Maggie celebrate their first Christmas in Brooklyn Heights with their new friends. When Maggie is bakery sitting for Anita, James finds out that she has bought him a very nice and expensive gift (an auto remote control answering machine). This only leads him to feel bad because all he bought her was a pair of mittens. With not a lot of money to spend, he gets a job as a store Santa to earn extra money to buy her a nicer Christmas present: a necklace. But at the final minute, the Christmas spirit hits him and he gives it to his poor elf assistant's husband so he can finally give her a nice gift for Christmas. On Christmas Day, Maggie surprises Mickey with a tree full of toys from Santa. Then James shows up to give him a sled and sing her a song he wrote especially for her the night before.
