lawsuit against Nikki for emotional distress is set to start this week, despite
her efforts to settle quietly with Ward. Now pushed into a corner, Nikki has
decided to fight fire with fire by using her very personal diary that she kept
while she was a member of Ianís commune. Michael asks his client if sheís sure
she wants to use her diary in a public forum. Later, Nikki warns Dylan that some
very unpleasant details about her past will emerge during the trial. Dylan
remains supportive. Meanwhile, Christine arrives at the police station to find
an agitated Paul, who has just talked to a tabloid journalist. Christine insists
that her husband stop putting Nikki ahead of his own health and recovery. Paul
assures her that he can handle being a character witness for Nikki, but
Christine isnít so sure. Paul reminds his wife that Nikki didnít intentionally
deceive him about Dylan being his son. Nevertheless, Paul agrees not to testify.
Instead, Paul opts to be present in the courtroom as a silent observer, and
Christine insists on accompanying him. Just before the trial begins, Dylan and
Nikki are surprised and touched by Paulís arrival. Before the trial kicks off,
Michael and Ianís lawyer, David Sherman, whose father, Mitchell Sherman, was the
Chancellor legal rep for decades, meet with the judge. While the attorneys
confer with the judge, Paul comforts Nikki, which doesnít make Christine happy.

doctor, who offers an update on the patient. Victor explains to Dr. Burnett that
heís been in communication with Dr. Cutler in Switzerland about a new
experimental drug trial that may help Phyllis. Certain that another space in
Cutlerís trial will open up, Victor requests a copy of Phyllisís records. When
Dr. Burnett states that he must first call Phyllisís family, Victor insists that
they remain out of the loop. Victor makes an offer Hoffman canít refuse: A large
endowment to the clinic - if things are done his way. An obedient Dr. Burnett
exits to contact Dr. Cutler, and Victor takes Phyllisís hand to assure her that
if all goes well, sheíll be home soon.
