Taylor: What are you looking for? What are you doing?
Nick: I expected my mother to have a brass band waiting.
Taylor: Oh no, they're out on the terrace.
Taylor: You okay? You were quiet in the car on the way home.
Nick: I guess it's all just sinking in a bit.
Taylor: Yeah, for me too. Ridge confessing, and then just waiting for you to be released. I guess if ever the word "Bittersweet" applied --
Nick: You spend a lot of years with the man.
Taylor: But he also hurt me a lot. I mean, it's nothing compared to what he did to you. If anybody has a reason to be bitter.
Nick: Hanging out to that stuff -- not going to do anybody any good, right?
Taylor: Wow! Wow! I've taught you a lot, haven't I? That's what makes you such a remarkable man.
Nick: Maybe I'm getting soft in my old age.
Taylor: Oh, shh. Don't worry, that'll be out little secret. It will be between you, and me and baby Marone.
Nick: Baby Marone? How is he doing? All this stress couldn't have been good for either one of you.
Taylor: Well, I think that she is holding up just fine, she's doing great. Hi, Phoebe.
Nick: Oh, hi.
Phoebe: Hey, I -- I'm really happy you're out of jail. I never wanted to believe -- I just -- I was so sure that my dad wasn't involved, and now I find out he was.
Taylor: Phoebe, it was an accident. Your father was just trying to stop Shane from hurting himself. It was really heroic.
Phoebe: What happened after wasn't.
Nick: You know, hon, he got some bad advice. He did the right thing, I'm sure a judge and jury will find the right answer. And he's going to be all right. I promise.
Phoebe: Yeah, I hope you're right.
Taylor: Phoebe, what's wrong? Are you okay?
Phoebe: It's -- it's Rick. I, um, was so angry with him for believing that dad was guilty I broke up with him. It's just that now I find out he was right, dad was guilty, Rick is just the best thing that's ever happened to me, and I should have never treated him that way. Maybe I don't deserve him. Maybe I never did.
Rick: I still can't believe Nick was convicted of murder. And that Ridge -- Ridge shows up looking as guilty as sin.
Ashley: You thought he was going to confess?
Rick: Yeah. But he didn't. And you still can't find reason to think ill will of the guy, despite your doubts.
Ashley: Look, we may never know what really happened that night -- if Ridge was or wasn't involved in Shane's death. But it doesn't stop me from feeling for Nick and his loved ones.
Rick: Because you believe he's innocent too.
Ashley: I know all too well what this kind of a thing can do to a family. Nick and Taylor are newlyweds, they're expecting a baby. And then there's Phoebe, as sure as she's been that her father had nothing to do with Shane's death, I bet she didn't think that nick did either. This has to be a really difficult time for her, which is why I'm kind of surprised we're here. Why didn't you postpone this business trip? You should be there for her.
Rick: Trust me when I say I am the last person in the world Phoebe wants to spend time with right now.
Ashley: Why do you say that?
Rick: Let's just say that Phoebe is, um, furious with me for looking for evidence that pointed towards her father. So furious, in fact, that she broke up with me. We're through. Phoebe and I are -- we're over.
Taylor: I'm sure Rick will understand.
Phoebe: I just -- I've called him, and he hasn't returned any of my messages.
Taylor: So keep trying.
Phoebe: What if it's too late?
Taylor: After what Nick and I just went through? Trust me, it can never be too late.
Nick: If he gives you any trouble, you just have him come and see me and I'll -- I'll straighten him out.
Phoebe: Thank you.
Taylor: You know, all relationships get tested. If it's meant to be for the two of you, you'll find a way to work it out. And when you do, your relationship will be that much stronger.
Phoebe: I just -- I wish I knew where he was.
Rick: But you warned me that this would happen, right? I would break Phoebe's heart, or she would break mine and move on.
Ashley: Yeah, but are you sure she really has? Girls her age are really impulsive, Rick. Remember, I was eighteen once.
Rick: Yeah, so was I. And amber happened to be pregnant during that point in time. You know, you said it before, and I think you're right. I think one of the major reasons why I fell for Phoebe so hard, so fast, is -- I think I was just trying to recapture some of my youth that amber took away from me. Instead --
Ashley: What? You just got one complication after another?
Rick: Yeah. And ridge, he was a major complication. He tired so hard to keep us apart. It drove me crazy. But I have to admit, I think he was doing us a favor, preventing us from getting ahead of ourselves.
Ashley: Rick, Phoebe's a lovely girl and I can understand why you fell for her.
Rick: Yeah, she is. She's a very lovely girl, but she's a very lovely eighteen-year-old girl. And I'm a man, I'm a man that needs more than just a good night kiss at the door, you know? I'm a man that needs real intimacy. More than just physical intimacy, Ashley -- emotional and intellectual intimacy between a man and a woman who love and appreciate and respect each other on many levels. And intimacy that I -- that I haven't had since -- since you. And look, I'm not -- I'm not trying to discredit what Phoebe and I had. What we had was special, and amazing in its own way. But it's not what we had. It's not what we had in Paris.
Ashley: And just what exactly do you think we had in Paris, Rick? Because whatever the hell it was, it was over as soon as it began. That should tell us both something, should it?
Rick: It should tell us that you had to go home, Ashley. You had to go back to Genoa City --
Ashley: We both went back to our lives.
Rick: Okay, okay, fine. What if I was to tell you that after you left I was devastated? That I couldn't think about anything but you, that I had to bury myself in my work just to forget you!
Ashley: Stop it. Stop it. This isn't fair. I know that you're hurting, and you have my sympathies, but that's all I can offer you, and that's all you should expect from me.
Nick: Hey. If I tell you a secret, will you promise not to tell anybody?
Taylor: I promise not to breathe a word to anybody.
Nick: Say ever.
Nick: Okay. I was just watching you now and I realized what I've been missing.
Nick: I miss home. I love home. And I never ever knew what that meant -- not until you. Not until now. Don't tell anybody.
Phoebe: We have so much to talk about, and we will, Rick. We'll make things right again. And nothing can come between us, ever again.
Rick: Ashley, I need you to know this is not about me being on some kind of a rebound, okay? This about me being afraid of what we talked about that night in Ridge's office coming true.
Ashley: What night?
Rick: The night after Phoebe turned me down, when I wanted to take her up the coast for a weekend getaway and we started talking, and I asked you if you ever truly wanted two things at the same time. And you said --
Rick: Yes. And you told me that people who want two things at the same time usually end up losing them both. I don't want to lose you. I'm sorry, I just -- I don't want to lose you. And especially not to Ridge.
Ashley: Is this some kind of sick competition for you?
Rick: No, it's not a sick competition. Ashley, it's not a competition at all! Okay? This is about what we had. It's about what we felt. And there's no way in hell you're ever going to get that with Ridge.
Ashley: Well, I've got news for you. I was starting to feel things for him before this whole craziness with Shane happened.
Rick: No, I'm not -- I'm talking about before that. Before the craziness with Shane. I'm taking about the dinner at Cafe Russe. The night we went over that marketing report in your hotel room. Something happened Ashley, something that neither one of us wanted to put into words, but it happened none the less. And now it's --
Ashley: Now what? And now what? Now you're looking back, and you're wondering if it would have changed something if we had realized we had residual feelings for each other? We knew we did! We said as much to each other! But you were in love with Phoebe! Or in love with being love with Phoebe! And I didn't want any part of that, and I still don't! Don't. I can't do this. I can't do this. No!
Rick: Ashley please --
Rick: A --
Ashley: No! No. I'm going to freshen up, and when I come back out, let's talk about something completely different.
Taylor: Oh my God. Is it just me, or do we just make love like a couple of twenty year olds?
Nick: I warned you, baby. I warned you what hard time can do to a man. Whoever said incarceration didn't have its upsides?
Taylor: Oh, I'll say.
Nick: All the bad stuff is behind us.
Taylor: Yeah, for you and me, but not for Ridge. Definitely not the kids, and poor Phoebe feels responsible for her father.
Nick: We'll all be fine.
Taylor: And now's she upset about Rick.
Nick: Don't worry about Rick. He knows that she was upset just because of what was happening to the old man. They'll be fine.
Taylor: Well, maybe it's for the best that they broke up.
They say we're young and we don't know we won't find out until we grow I don't know if all that's true you got me, and baby I've got you babe I've got you babe I've got you babe I've got you
Rick: Two people really connecting in the middle of a song, and in the music. It's -- I don't know, it's magical.
To wear my ring and when I'm sad, you're a clown and if I get scared you're always around
Phoebe: Rick, I need you now. More than ever.
Rick: Hey, right here. I have an idea, I want to run it by you. What do you say we land in New York, and we cancel the meeting. Let's do something crazy, let's turn this plane right around, and go to Mexico in some private secluded get away type thing.
Ashley: Are you kidding me? Didn't you hear anything I said?
Rick: You're upset.
Ashley: Yes, I'm upset. I thought you understood how I feel.
Rick: I do, I do understand how you feel, Ashley. I'm just -- I'm trying to get you to understand how I feel.
Ashley: I know how you feel. You just got dumped, so you feel rejected and you feel hurt, and probably frustrated, because your girlfriend's been denying you for so long --
Rick: Ex girlfriend.
Ashley: Until she begs you to come back.
Rick: No, Ashley, I devastated this girl emotionally. Okay? By doubting her father the way that I did. It's -- it's over. Really.
Ashley: Okay, so it's over. That doesn't mean that something --
Rick: No, listen to me, just for a second.
Rick: Please. I'm not trying to insult Phoebe, or myself by discrediting what we had, because believe me, what we had was special, and it was amazing. Ashley, every time I was with her, my heart felt like it was jumping out of my chest. And I know it was real, I know it was genuine, because I only felt that way one time before in my life. And it was with you.
Phoebe: Hi Rick. It's me. I don't know where you are, and I guess -- I guess I understand why you're not returning my calls. It's just -- I really didn't want to believe that my dad was the one who shot Shane. And well -- well now that he's confessed -- or maybe you haven't heard that. I don't know. Or maybe you're just too angry at me for breaking up with you. It's just that, um, this is the hardest thing that I've ever been through, and I've never felt so alone. I love you. Rick, I don't -- I don't want to lose you. Please don't give up on me. Don't give up on us.
