Victor: Will you take messages for me for the time being? Connie, let the others know that Iíll be back in a short while, okay?

Nick: Hey, Dad.

Victor: Hello.

Nick: When did you get here?

Victor: I never left. I wanted to be here in case your sister needed anything.

Nick: How is she doing this morning?

Victor: She hasn't come down yet.

Nikki: She's still sleeping. She needs the rest. Anybody want coffee?

Victor: No, thank you. Now that Nicholas is here, I think I'll go back to my apartment, take a shower, then I have to go to the office for a while.

Nikki: Okay. Oh, Victor -- I'm just so glad you were there to protect us.

Victor: Don't forget that Ryan saved us.

Nikki: I know. I know, and he will always have a piece of my heart for that. I'm so glad you were there. I'm okay. I'm all right.

Victor: I'll be back later on.

Nikki: Okay.

Miguel: Mrs. Newman?

Nikki: Yeah?

Miguel: Would you like me to fix a tray for Victoria?

Nikki: You know, I don't know if she's awake yet, but let me go see.

[Phone rings]

Isabella: Hello?

Michael: Don't hang up. It's me.

Isabella: What do you want?

Michael: Are you still angry? Isabella, are you still there?

Isabella: Look, Iíve been thinking over your offer.

Michael: And?

Isabella: And as much as I hate to ask anything from you, I am in no position to be proud. So I need your help to find me a job in another town. The sooner I leave this God-forsaken place, the better.

Michael: Well, that's great. Do you want to come to my office? Shall I come there?

Isabella: Why don't you come here in an hour? I have somewhere to be right now.

Jack: Good morning, sleepyhead. A rose for my fairest rose.

Phyllis: It's beautiful.

Jack: Nowhere near as beautiful as you are. Hungry?

Phyllis: What do you have in mind?

Jack: Oh, down, girl. Down, girl. I was thinking of rolls and coffee.

Phyllis: I wasn't.

Jack: Did I mention everyone's gone already?

Phyllis: Oh, I guess we're getting a late start.

Jack: Well, late, I don't know. We are in the baby-making business. We have to take every opportunity available to us.

Phyllis: You know what? That reminds me. I have to take one of these. Here it goes. Why are you smiling?

Jack: Oh, Iím just thinking what a beautiful mother you're going to be.

Phyllis: I'm not pregnant yet -- not until the scientists do their thing.

Jack: Well, you know what the doctor told us -- no harm in going through the motions.

Katherine: So how did things go with Mackenzie after I retired last evening?

Billy: Well, she's still very upset at her mom, even after Ned told her that Amanda did a very good thing for someone while she was at the shelter.

Katherine: Oh, please, is that supposed to erase all the heartache that she has caused Mackenzie?

Billy: No, but don't you think it makes a difference?

Katherine: Billy, I think what Mackenzie thinks is what counts.

Billy: Well, she thinks it could, which is why I'm trying to convince her to reconsider letting her mom go.

Katherine: Do you think Mackenzie should reopen some lines of communications with her mother?

Billy: Mrs. Chancellor, all I know is that Mac has admitted to having unresolved issues with her mom, and if she could use this second chance to start working through some of that -- besides, you know, Iím talking from my own experience. I know it's better to have a not-so-great relationship with your mom than none at all.

Katherine: Billy, my granddaughter has never told me exactly why she ran away from home. Now, I know you've talked about it with her. I don't expect you to betray her trust, believe me. I've got to know if Amanda is directly responsible for all of the pain that she has suffered.

Billy: I think it's more about what her mom didn't do than what she did do.

Katherine: Well, if -- if the woman is sincere, then I would have to agree, yes. It would be better if Mackenzie had some kind of relationship with her. After all, as much as I'd like to be everything to Mackenzie, I know that's not possible. And I'm fully aware that I can never, ever replace her mother.

[Amanda remembering]

Mackenzie: Don't ever come back to Genoa City, 'cause as far as Iím concerned, I don't even have a mother.

Amanda: Excuse me?

Clerk: Yes?

Amanda: I've changed my mind. I've decided not to go to Springfield. Can I change my ticket for one to Tampa?

Clerk: No problem. Let's see. That'll be another $50.

Amanda: What? I don't have that much money, and I really need to get to Tampa.

Clerk: Lady, I'm sorry. What can I do? If you want to get to Tampa, you've gotta come up with 50 bucks.

Nikki: I was just coming to check on you. How are you doing?

Victoria: I'm fine.

Nick: How about some breakfast? You know you've got to eat.

Miguel: I just made some blueberry muffins.

Victoria: I'm really not hungry.

Nikki: Sweetheart, just try a little bit, okay?

Victoria: Fine, a muffin.

Miguel: I'll bring it right up.

Victoria: I'll have it the kitchen.

[Phone rings]

Nikki: Hello?

Chris: Nikki, hi. It's Christine Williams.

Nikki: Christine? You've heard?

Chris: Yeah. I'm in Los Angeles for a few days on business. I was visiting Nina when Neil phoned last night with the news.

Nikki: She must be devastated.

Chris: Yeah. It's hit her really hard.

Nikki: What about Phillip?

Chris: She hasn't told him yet.

Nikki: Is she coming out for the funeral?

Chris: No. No, she has to stay with Phillip, and he can't fly.

Nikki: He's still sick?

Chris: Yeah, but I'll be at the service.

Nikki: I'm afraid we haven't made all the arrangements, but I'll call you as soon as we do.

Chris: All right. Great. Thanks. Let me give you my number here.

Nikki: Yeah. Okay. All right, good. I'm glad you're coming, Christine. I wish it were under better circumstances. I'll see you soon. Bye. Well, Nina and Phillip can't come -- honey, what's wrong?

Nick: It's like the light has gone out of Victoria.

Nikki: How can it not after what's happened? She's strong. She'll come out of this in time.

Dr. Thompson: Isabella, make sure you stop by my receptionist on your way out. I will need to see you again in a few weeks.

Isabella: Why? I thought you said everything was fine.

Dr. Thompson: Oh, it is, but regular prenatal check-ups are very important.

Isabella: Of course. It's just -- Iím not sure how much longer I'll be in Genoa City.

Dr. Thompson: You're leaving town?

Isabella: I'm not sure I have much choice.

Dr. Thompson: Isabella, I don't mean to pry, but since you haven't mentioned the baby's father, I'm assuming you haven't told him about the child?

Isabella: No.

Dr. Thompson: He's not in the picture at all?

Isabella: For reasons that I don't want to get into.

Dr. Thompson: It must be difficult, going it alone.

Isabella: I'll manage.

Dr. Thompson: I didn't mean to imply otherwise.

Isabella: I never thought it would come to this. How in God's name did I let this happen?

Dr. Thompson: Obviously, you're in a very difficult situation. If there's anything I can do to help, I want you to --

Isabella: I don't need your help or your pity. I have some leads on some jobs in other towns. I have a meeting this morning to settle things.

Dr. Thompson: Look, I don't want to spoil your plans, but have you thought this through carefully?

Isabella: What are you talking about?

Dr. Thompson: Being pregnant, you might have trouble finding work.

Isabella: Like I said, I have connections.

Dr. Thompson: Will those enable you to hold a job well into your pregnancy and afterwards with a newborn? I'm just afraid you could wind up all alone in a new town with no way to support yourself.

Billy: Anyway, she said she was gonna let me know this morning, that she was gonna sleep on it. Hey, there you are. How are you doing? What's wrong?

Mackenzie: I just wish that you and my grandma wouldn't talk about my mom behind my back.

Katherine: I'm sorry, sweetheart. We weren't discussing --

Mackenzie: I overheard you talking.

Billy: Mac, come on. We love you, and we just want to help.

Mackenzie: I don't need any help.

Katherine: Well, I'm sorry, sweetheart, but that is exactly how it works. Your family, your friends get involved because they care.

Katherine: Esther? Esther, what is it?

Esther: I just turned on the radio, and they said that Ryan --

Katherine: What, what?

Esther: He didn't make it.

Katherine: Dear God in heaven. Dear God in heaven. I have to -- I have to call Nikki.

Mackenzie: Victoria --

Mackenzie: This is so awful. Not that we knew Ryan that well, but --

Billy: He was so young.

Mackenzie: About to get married. His whole life ahead of him.

Billy: And now -- do you think Iím pushing too hard about your mom?

Mackenzie: Not really, and I did sleep on it, like I promised.

Billy: But?

Mackenzie: I'm having a hard time deciding what to do.

Billy: Even after finding out what she did for Colleen?

Mackenzie: I'm not saying it didn't affect me. I just don't know if I can trust her.

Billy: Wow. I mean, what's a person got to do to earn back your trust? I mean, I did, so I know it can be done.

Mackenzie: She said she was leaving town, but she didn't. She stayed at the shelter, where she knows I volunteer. How can I believe anything she says?

Billy: Mac, she says she just wants to be close to you. All right, all right. A part of her was hoping that she would run into you. Look, it's complicated.

[Phone rings]

Mackenzie: Hello?

Ned: Hey, Mac, it's Ned.

Mackenzie: Hi. What's up?

Ned: Look, I just checked the women's dorm. Amanda's taken her things and left the shelter.

Mackenzie: When did she leave?

Ned: I'm not sure. No one saw her go.

Mackenzie: Okay. Well, thanks for letting me know.

Ned: Yeah.

Billy: Mac, what is it?

Mackenzie: That was Ned. My mom's taken off.

Billy: Already?

Mackenzie: You know, in a way, her leaving shows that she might be sincere, but it's too late now. What?

Billy: Well, you know, maybe there is something we can do. But it's totally up to you, Mac. It's your call.

Dr. Thompson: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to upset you.

Isabella: You're right. If I take a job now, Iíd have to ask for maternity leave, and having not been there a year, I might be let go. There'd be no money coming in. I'd be all alone in a new town. What was I thinking? There has to be another option.

Jack: You didn't join me in the shower.

Phyllis: Oh, well, I just got enough strength to get my tushie out of bed and have some coffee.

Jack: Old smiling Jack's a little too much for you these days?

[Phyllis laughs]

Phyllis: I don't think so.

Jack: You can take a little something off my game if you like. [Phyllis laughs] What? What is it?

Phyllis: You know, I was just thinking. Before I told you I wanted to get pregnant, you said you had some exciting news for me.

Jack: Well, that was before you told me about your fantabulous idea.

Phyllis: Well, tell me what got you so excited.

Jack: Actually, it's kind of a back burner issue now. I found a wonderful penthouse apartment for the two of us to move into, but that was before we talked about starting a family.

Phyllis: Oh, so you just don't want to rush into anything until we're sure?

Jack: Well, you know, I mean, it's still a big deal. We've got to find a place to live once we get married, but whether that's a penthouse downtown or something a little more traditional --

Phyllis: Yeah, like a house in the country with a white picket fence and a swing set in the backyard? Are you thinking of buying or building?

Jack: Oh, whatever works. Either one's fine.

Phyllis: You know, I asked because a few weeks back, I was looking in the closet and found these plans. You were obviously thinking of building a house at one time. These are your plans, right? Has your memory skipped you?

Jack: No. I think I probably blocked this one out. You didn't happen to notice the name of the architect, did you? Diane Jenkins.

[Doorbell rings]

Diane: Hello, Victor. Remember me?

Victor: Well, Iíll be damned. If it isn't Diane Jenkins.

Nikki: I know. We all are. Thank you, Katherine. I'll tell her. I'll speak to you later. Bye-bye.

Nick: There are some business associates of Ryanís who may not have heard, so Iíll be in the den.

Nikki: All right, honey. Sweetie. It's very sad, isn't it?

Cassie: I just can't believe Iíll never see Ryan again. It doesn't seem possible.

Nikki: I know. I know it doesnít.

Sharon: Cassie wanted to let her aunt know how she feels.

Nikki: That's going to mean so much to her. You're so sweet.

Cassie: I'm really sorry, Aunt Vicki. I was looking forward to Ryan being my uncle.

Victoria: Thank you, Cassie. I know he was looking forward to that, too.

Victor: Why are you here?

Diane: If you'll let me come in, I'll explain.

Victor: You haven't answered my question. Why'd you come here?

Diane: I would think that's obvious. When I heard about this tragedy of Ryanís death --

Victor: You felt a sudden impulse to be near the Newman family, is that it?

Diane: You find that so hard to believe? Do I need to remind you, we were married once -- happily? And I'll never forget the connection I had with your family. And in times like these, families pull together.

Victor: This family has done extremely well without you. How long do you plan to stay here?

Diane: Just a little while. As I said, I heard about what happened, and I wanted to express my condolences in person.

Victor: Really?

Diane: Yeah. You know, I'm not really a bad person, Victor. And I don't believe in carrying grudges.

Victor: You're the last person that I expected or wanted to see. However, I do agree with you, holding grudges is not healthy.

Diane: Well, then, there might be hope for us yet.

Phyllis: Diane Jenkins? Now, there's a name I could have done without hearing this morning.

Jack: Yeah, that would make two of us.

Phyllis: Do I sense some antipathy?

Jack: From me, old smiling Jack? No, I love everybody.

Phyllis: Even your ex-fiancťe?

Jack: My ex-fiancťe might be an exception.

Phyllis: You want to tell me why?

Jack: I think you have some idea what this is all about.

Phyllis: No, Jack. I don't know all your deep, dark secrets, especially when it comes to your ex-fiancťes.

Jack: Obviously, you know we were engaged.

Phyllis: Yes, I know that. I also know it wasn't your average, run-of-the-mill engagement.

Jack: Well, it certainly started out that way.

Phyllis: Meaning you were head over heels in love with her?

Jack: Well, you are not the first beautiful filly I've fallen for.

Phyllis: Well, I'm definitely the last. So these are your blueprints of your love nest with Diane Jenkins?

Jack: Actually, Diane finished those right about the same time that she started things out with Victor Newman.

Phyllis: Do you ever wonder what might have been, Jack?

Jack: Nope. No, I look at those plans, and I wonder how I ever could have gotten involved with Diane Jenkins again.

Phyllis: Again?

[Jack sighs]

Jack: You don't want to know.

Phyllis: Yes, I do want to know. I want to know right now, and you're going to tell me.

[Knock at door]

Ned: Be right with you, Ellen.

Amanda: It's not Ellen.

Ned: Amanda? I thought you'd left.

Amanda: Yeah, I did, but I ran into a problem. I was at the train station, and I found out that I didn't have enough money to get to where I was going. I hate this, Ned, but could you spot me 50 bucks? I promise I'll pay you back.

Ned: Amanda, I think you should reconsider leaving.

Amanda: Why? My daughter might give me another chance? Come on, Ned, that's wishful thinking.

Ned: No, it's not. Look, you have every right to be upset with me for what Iíve done, but I told Mac that you were the good Samaritan who helped Colleen.

Amanda: What did she say? Did she want to see me again? She doesn't, does she?

Ned: Amanda, give her time. You can't expect --

Amanda: What, a miracle? Because you and I both know that's what it will take.

Ned: Look, hearing what you did had an impact on Mac. I really think it's worth you staying around a little longer.

Amanda: I've got to cut my losses.

Ned: Or play to win.

Amanda: Damn it, Ned! This isn't some game! I've already caused my daughter enough pain.

Ned: Amanda, listen to me. I was just on the phone with Mac telling her you'd left. I had the definite feeling she was a little disappointed. Not only that, her boyfriend Billy is hoping Mac will at least build some small bridge to you, enough so that you have a chance to communicate. But that can't happen if you leave.

Amanda: I wish you wouldn't have said anything to Mackenzie. I mean, not only did you break my confidence, but you caused my daughter more pain. Don't you see, Ned? Every minute that I stay here hurts my daughter that much more. So please help me.

Michael: Oh, there you are. I was beginning to think you stood me up.

Isabella: Don't start with me, Michael. I am in no mood.

Michael: Where have you been?

Isabella: None of your business.

Michael: Fine. Far be it from me to pry.

Isabella: Since when?

Michael: Hey, let's call a truce.

Isabella: I think that's asking a bit much, especially after last night.

Michael: I thought we were past all that.

Isabella: Why, because I asked for your help?

Michael: Which I'm happy to give.

Isabella: You're happy to get rid of me. There's a difference.

Michael: No, you misunderstood me last night.

Isabella: Oh, really?

Michael: Look, I definitely plan to stay in touch with you to make sure you're okay.

Isabella: How touching.

Michael: Look, Isabella, we're friends. I care about you.

Isabella: Which is why you're so anxious for me to leave town?

Michael: I know you think it's because I don't want to risk Christine finding out about our association, but she is not a factor.

Isabella: Yeah, keep telling yourself that, Michael.

Michael: You know, you think Christine is this risk to your happiness. First with Paul, then with me. Frankly, I think you're just a bit obsessed.

Isabella: Well, thank you for your psychoanalysis, doctor.

Michael: Look, I'm only saying it's another indication that you need a fresh break, you know? And that's why Iím here.

Isabella: What? What is that?

Michael: This is my list of contacts. Would you care to check them out with me? Okay. Now, I know a number of well-placed people in several large cities, all of which are possibilities. But while I was putting this list together, one place really stood out.

Isabella: Where?

Michael: New Orleans. Not only is it a terrific city, but two of my former colleagues work there. Now, one is a partner in a top-notch firm where you could get an entry level position. The other is a professor at Tulane. You can finish college, and you can work, too. Huh? Come on. Sweetheart, don't fight it. Now, I know you can be happy in New Orleans.

Isabella: Oh, are you going to guarantee that?

Michael: Hey, if you put yourself in the right frame of mind, absolutely. Come on. What do you say? How about I get the ball rolling right now?

Jack: Honey, this is all ancient history.

Phyllis: You brought it up, sweetheart, not me.

Jack: You're not really worried that I have feelings for Diane Jenkins?

Phyllis: No, because I know you're in love with me.

Jack: That's right, body and soul.

Phyllis: Yet you chose to get involved with this woman again and again.

Jack: My history with Diane goes way back. I met her when she was a model at Jabot. Hell, I should've learned my lesson then and gotten her the hell out of my life.

Phyllis: But you didn't.

Jack: No, I didnít. She came back into town, and I got sucked right back in. And that is, of course, when I got my comeuppance from Victor Newman. Actually, I should be thanking the mustache. He did finally get Diane out of my life once and for all.

Phyllis: And Victor got his own comeuppance.

Jack: Oh, you mean the ugly divorce? Yeah. The final blow came when Diane found out that the baby she was carrying wasn't Victor's as she had insisted it was.

Phyllis: That's when she split out of town.

Jack: Yup. Any trace of Diane Jenkins is out of my life forever.

Victor: So you said you have come here to express your condolences.

Diane: It was something I needed to do.

Victor: Thank you. You've done it.

Diane: In other words, my presence at the funeral wouldn't be welcome?

Victor: You surmise correctly.

Diane: Still, it hurts.

Victor: This isn't about you, Diane Jenkins. This is about my daughter and her grief.

Diane: Victor, I wasn't expecting to be invited to a family dinner, though I did think I'd be allowed to express my condolences directly. Fine. Nobody can say I didn't try. I guess there's nothing more to say. Then again, maybe there is.

Cassie: I wish I could do something for Aunt Vicki.

Sharon: Cassie, we all feel that way, sweetie.

Nikki: You know what, honey? In the next few weeks, there will be things we can do to help her.

Cassie: But still, she's so quiet.

Nick: What's wrong?

Cassie: I'm afraid I might start crying.

Sharon: Oh, sweetheart, it's okay to show your feelings.

Cassie: I know, but if I start crying in front of Aunt Vicki, won't I make her even sadder?

Sharon: Sweetie, why don't we go down to the house for a little while? We'll come back a little later.

Cassie: Okay.

[Phone rings]

Nikki: Hello? Oh, yes. I'll have to get back to you.

Nick: Who was that?

Nikki: The funeral home. They're wondering about the arrangements.

Nick: Vicki's not gonna be up to doing them.

Nikki: No, I don't think so. I think we should just go ahead and do it for her.

Victoria: Who was on the phone? It was about the funeral, wasn't it?

Nikki: Honey, it's okay. We will take care of everything.

Victoria: No, Iíll handle it.

Nikki: Are you sure?

Victoria: Yes. It's the last thing I can do for Ryan, and I'm going to do it.

Billy: I combed the building.

Mackenzie: No sign of my mom?

Billy: Did you talk to the clerk?

Mackenzie: Billy, come on. Let's face it. We're too late.

Mackenzie: If she was here, she's already gone.

Billy: Mac, I don't think we should give up. Maybe she decided to fly.

Mackenzie: Where would she get that kind of money? You know, maybe it's for the best. Let's go.

Billy: Hey, hey, hey, hey. Mac, Mac, look.

Diane: You're not the least bit curious about how I've been?

Victor: Not the least bit.

Diane: Fine. I'll tell you anyway. I've been doing quite well this past year.

Victor: I had no doubt that you would land on your feet.

Diane: Yes, well, I am a survivor. So when I decided to make a fresh start, I really went for it. I took a job with an international architectural firm in Milan. It was a definite adjustment at first, but once --

Victor: Before you go on babbling, let me ask you something. After everything that you have done to me and my family, do you honestly think Iíd give a damn?

Diane: Oh, foolish me. Good-bye, Victor. Sorry to have intruded on your grief.

Isabella: Michael, wait.

Michael: Isabella, we've really got to get moving on this.

Isabella: We do?

Michael: I'm only trying to help.

Isabella: Because you think this is best for me?

Michael: You don't want this?

Isabella: The point is, the reason you're doing this is because you don't want me to intrude on your fantasies with Christine Williams.

Michael: You know -- ahh! You know, Isabella, I'm really tired of this. You ask me to help, and then, when I try and give it to you, you give me all sorts of attitude. If you want to handle this by yourself, be my guest.

Isabella: I woke up this morning, and I couldn't wait to distance myself from this town, but now I canít.

Michael: And why not?

Isabella: The appointment I mentioned, I was having some symptoms, and I thought it was a stomach virus, so I went to the doctor.

Michael: Yeah, okay. What, you're sick? What?

Isabella: No, Michael, I'm pregnant. I'm carrying your child.
