I should have been more careful we could have took a little more time
I don't think we got what we were after 'cause now there's no more you and I
Paul: Hi. Have you ordered anything yet? Okay, excuse me. Two coffees, please? Let's move to a table where we can talk. This okay? I wasn't sure you were going to call. I'm glad you did. I guess that we're feeling the same thing right now.
Chris: You think so?
Paul: Well, Iím not sure that we will ever be able to break down the wall between us. But seeing you and talking, it --
Paul: Well, I guess Ryanís death gave me -- it just reminded me how fragile and uncertain our lives can be. It just gave me a different perspective. So I guess what I'm trying to say is that no matter where we go from this point that -- what is it, Chris? What's going on? What's wrong?
Chris: Why don't you just take a guess?
Nick: Honey, you are amazing. I can't tell you how good it feels to hold you and touch you. I love you so much.
Sharon: I know, Nicholas.
Nick: Well then promise me you won't forget it, okay? Actually Iím not even gonna let you forget it. What's wrong? Why are you crying?
Sharon: Nicholas, you have just been such a wonderful man and so patient.
Nick: Honey, you've been through a lot.
Sharon: You know, Iím really -- I'm sorry if I disappointed you.
Nick: Disappointed me? What are you talking about?
Sharon: I guess I feel kind of -- I just -- I guess I'm still kind of closed off inside. You know, I don't mean to be.
Nick: But you can't help it.
Sharon: It's not how I want it to be.
Nick: Look, this is the first time that we've made love since -- well, for -- in a long time. And we've been through so much. It's going to take a while for us to get things back the way they used to be.
Sharon: Tell me something honestly. Do you think that we're gonna be able to get things back to they way they used to be?
Ralph: Hello, Mackenzie. I hate how you're being so distant. Why? Hmm? Don't you know how much I care about you? I want us to be close again, honey. Closer than ever -- ever, ever, ever, ever.
Mackenzie: No, Daddy.
Ralph: It's okay.
Mackenzie: No, stop. Please stop. Please stop. Stop!
Katherine: Mac?! Mac, what is it?!
Esther: What's wrong?!
Amanda: Billy, you wanted to see me?
Billy: Yeah, yeah, thanks for coming.
Amanda: Is this about my daughter?
Billy: I'm sure you probably figured out that I was encouraging her to keep talking to you.
Amanda: Yeah, yeah, and Iím very grateful for that.
Billy: Well, now I want to make sure it wasn't a big mistake.
Gina: Diane Jenkins, hi.
Diane: Hi, Gina.
Gina: Let me take you to a table. Boy, it's been a long time. So how have you been? Where have you been?
Diane: I'm fine. I'm living in Milan now.
Gina: That's a long way from Genoa City.
Diane: Not far enough, I'm beginning to think.
Gina: Well, Iím glad to see you.
Diane: I'm afraid you're the only one who feels that way.
Gina: Your visit not going too well?
Diane: Your welcome makes me feel much better.
Diane: Is it me, or did the temperature just drop 20 degrees? Hello, Ashley.
Gina: Well, if you two will excuse me just for a second. I'll be right back.
Diane: Happy to see me?
Ashley: Astonished is more like it. May I?
Ashley: Your name has come up a couple of times in conversation recently. Now here you are. It's kind of bizarre. So what are you after? Why are you back?
Jack: Thank you, Mrs. Murphy, for letting us look through your husband's file.
Nikki: Yes, we promise not to take too long.
Amelia: Oh, don't count on it. Dennis kept a lot of records.
Nikki: Yeah, we've heard.
Amelia: Oh, he saved every scrap of paper. The man was a pack rat.
Jack: I assume, though, he had a system for filing things.
Amelia: Well, if he did I don't know about it. You know, I loved that man to pieces, but he was always kind of mysterious about his business.
Nikki: Did he keep anything on computer disks?
Amelia: Oh, no, he didn't believe in computers. That old typewriter right there served him just fine. Um, you two were clients of his?
Nikki: I was.
Amelia: Oh, really. Oh. So you and my Dennis worked close with each other, huh?
Michael: Good morning.
Isabella: Well, you're in a pleasant mood.
Michael: Shouldn't I be?
Isabella: Usually one is a bit nervous when they're about to negotiate.
Michael: What's this?
Isabella: I've drawn up a document that acknowledges you're the father of the baby, and lays out a child support schedule.
Michael: You did this yourself?
Isabella: It's simple and straightforward. All it needs is your signature.
Michael: I don't think so.
Isabella: What's wrong?
Michael: The news of your pregnancy did come as a surprise, to say the least. Nevertheless, I do intend to be fair.
Michael: Meaning? Meaning I won't sign anything. However, I will enter into a gentleman's agreement. I'll cover the expenses of your pregnancy, and subsequently, pay child support -- assuming it's mine.
Isabella: You don't believe that it's yours?
Michael: You're the one who suggested a paternity test.
Isabella: I don't know what you think I've been doing the past month. You have been wearing me out on a regular basis.
Michael: Yes, I have. However, as I recall, it was mutual.
Isabella: Well then, if you think I had time or the energy, holed up in that hotel room, to fool around with the bellboy as well, then fine I will take your little test. You'll pay for the lab work, of course. So what's it gonna be, Daddy?
Lynne: Still here?
Lauren: Is that a problem?
Lynne: Look, I don't mean to be rude. Why are you still hanging around?
Lauren: Come on, Lynne, you don't give a damn whether you're rude or not to me.
Lynne: Okay, Lauren. You know Paul went to see Chris, and if they come back here together don't you think your presence might make things a bit awkward?
Lauren: I know you mean well. You just care about your boss. But you think I'm some sort of vulture, circling, waiting to snatch up Paul.
Lynne: That's a very good description.
Lauren: Well, you're wrong. I'm his friend first.
Lynne: That'll be the day.
Lauren: You know, this is a very complicated situation. Paul is vulnerable, and so is Chris.
Lynne: Well, they're talking. And that's a good sign.
Lauren: But they have a lot of issues. And if they go into this emotionally blind, things won't turn out well.
Lynne: As if you really care.
Lauren: I do, and if you cared as much as you say you do, you'd share my concern.
Lynne: I am concerned. I've been concerned for months!
Lauren: Because you think Paul is gonna find his way back to Chris.
Lynne: You know what? If that happens -- no, excuse me, when that happens, then this "complicated situation," as you put it, will become uncomplicated. Love has a way of solving everything.
Paul: How can I guess what's wrong? Chris, what's going on? Well, can you at least tell me what you're feeling?
Chris: Yeah, I'm feeling angry and hurt. But then why should I be surprised?
Paul: I don't know what you mean.
Chris: You told me that Isabella left months ago.
Paul: Yeah, so?
Chris: Well, how do you explain the fact that I just saw her here?
Paul: Isabella was here?
Paul: Well, that's not possible.
Chris: When I walked in she was talking with Jill Abbott. And when I asked Jill who she was, she said it was Isabella Brogna. I thought she looked familiar, but I wasn't sure. After all, Iíve only seen the woman on her back.
Paul: Well, I don't understand. Isabella left here in September. And I haven't seen her since.
Chris: So that's your story, and you're sticking to it.
Paul: It happens to be the truth. Chris, you're not gonna leave! You're not going to throw this in my face and then take off. If Isabella was here, I didn't know anything about it.
Paul: Chris, I swear to you, I haven't seen her! If she has come back, this is the first I've heard of it. You know, I really can't believe that you would accuse me of flat-out lying!
Chris: You know, in the past, everything was so different. I trusted you. Now everything's changed. I can't count on you to be honest with me anymore.
Paul: So I guess we don't have anything more to discuss now, do we?
Chris: I guess not.
Paul: Good-bye, Chris.
Billy: The first time that you came to town, when we thought that you left -- Mac was pretty confused about how she felt.
Amanda: Yeah, she was angry at me for showing up at her door without warning.
Billy: I think she was afraid.
Amanda: Of me?
Billy: That you'd hurt her again.
Amanda: I told her that I would do anything to make amends.
Billy: Do you blame her for being skeptical? After everything that happened?
Amanda: It's true. I haven't given my daughter much reason to believe in me.
Billy: I think she wondered if there was any hope -- that you could ever be close again.
Amanda: Did she say that?
Billy: Well, not in so many words, but I could tell what was on her mind.
Amanda: Do you think it's possible, you know, that my daughter and I could have a relationship again?
Billy: Did you mean what you said about regretting the way you handled things?
Amanda: Yeah, Billy. I swear.
Billy: Well, that's why I wanted to see you. I needed to know if you're sincere. You know, I mean, if you can't convince me, I gotta tell ya -- I think Macís better off without you in her life.
Katherine: It was just a dream, darling. That's all it was, a nasty old dream.
Esther: Can I fix you something to eat? Or a cup of herbal tea?
Mackenzie: No, Esther, I'm fine.
Katherine: I really think she needs to talk to me alone, Esther.
Esther: Oh, oh, sure, of course. If you need anything just call.
Mackenzie: It was more than just a dream, Grandma. I was remembering what happened to me -- the reason I ran away.
Katherine: I'm so sorry that you -- you even have to think about that.
Mackenzie: It was horrible. It was like it was happening all over again -- the things he was saying, the way he --
Katherine: Shh. Don't even -- don't think about it. Try not to think about it.
Mackenzie: Grandma, I have to tell you! I want you to know what happened. I want you to know everything, okay?
Katherine: All right, all right.
Sharon: You ready to head out?
Nick: Yeah. I wish I could hang out here all day with you.
Sharon: Well, you know, Nick, maybe this is a good time to give priority to your father and the business.
Nick: I don't think that's how he feels, you know? I mean, how many times have you heard him say nothing's as important as family?
Sharon: But he's your family, too.
Nick: Are you trying to get rid of me?
Sharon: No, of course not.
Nick: I was just kidding. Don't take it so seriously.
Sharon: Well, maybe Iím being a little oversensitive. I'm sorry.
Nick: Stop apologizing. You don't have to walk on eggshells with me.
Sharon: Is that what I'm doing?
Nick: Isn't it?
Sharon: I don't know. Nick, I guess that a part of me is just scared.
Nick: Scared of what?
Sharon: I'm not sure.
Nick: Okay, you asked me a question earlier, and I didn't answer it, because I was hoping that you weren't serious. But I'm thinking that now, maybe you were. You asked me if I thought that we could get things back to the way they used to be -- the answer is yes, Sharon, I think we can.
Sharon: You believe that? Really?
Nick: Yes. And I'm kind of surprised that you doubt it.
Diane: Ashley, I don't owe you any explanations. So take your insults somewhere else because I have had enough from you people.
Ashley: Wow. I was just wondering what you were doing back in Genoa City.
Diane: I was in Chicago when I heard about Ryan McNeil, and I came to express my condolences.
Ashley: Well, I didn't see you at the funeral. So I guess you weren't invited.
Diane: You're right. I've been treated like dirt everywhere I go.
Ashley: What did you expect, Diane? I mean, really.
Diane: I thought that a tragedy like Ryanís death would make people forget petty grievances.
Ashley: You'd think so. But in your case, I guess we're all making an exception.
Diane: I heard about your brother's engagement.
Ashley: What about it?
Diane: Hmm, I think it's a hoot. Phyllis Summers, of all people.
Ashley: She's a step up from you.
Diane: Oh, but nobody's good enough for your brother, right? I'm sure a shrink would have a field day with that.
Ashley: I don't thing there's anything wrong with family looking out for family.
Diane: Oh, with you and Jack it goes way beyond that. Why do you think he always gets involved with women who drive you crazy?
Ashley: I don't know. Why do you think?
Diane: Well, either you're a bad judge of women or Jack is. Or could it be something more subtle?
Ashley: Like what?
Diane: Maybe it's Jack's way of sending you a message -- to get a life and butt out of his.
Ashley: Or maybe you're just projecting your misery onto me.
Nikki: Actually, your husband and I never met. Max Leftwich put me in touch with him. We just talked on the phone.
Amelia: Oh, yeah, good old Max. You know, he sent Dennis a lot of business.
Jack: So all of your husband's files are in these two boxes. Is that right?
Amelia: Oh, good heavens, no.
Nikki: You mean, there's more?
Amelia: Oh, see for yourself.
Nikki: Oh, my God.
Jack: Some of this is personal stuff, right?
Amelia: Oh, no, no, no, no. It's all business -- 35 yearsí worth.
Nikki: And you have no idea what file is in which box?
Amelia: I haven't a clue. Well, I'll be upstairs if you need me. Good luck finding whatever you're looking for.
Mackenzie: At first it was just the things he said -- and the way he looked at me -- but then he started touching me.
Katherine: Dear God.
Mackenzie: I told my mom. I begged her to believe me, but she wouldn't. That night that she came home from work early, he was unbuttoning my blouse. Why did I let him do that? Why didn't I just run or scream or something?
Katherine: Shh. Mackenzie, now, this is not your fault, darling. You just can't blame yourself.
Mackenzie: Why didn't my mom believe me, Grandma? I don't understand that.
Katherine: I don't know. I really don't know.
Amanda: You're very protective of Mackenzie.
Billy: Are you saying I don't have a right to be?
Amanda: No, I think it's wonderful that someone cares that much about her.
Billy: Look, I know why she left home.
Amanda: She told you the whole story?
Billy: I know what your husband did to her, if that's what you mean.
Amanda: And unlike me, you believed her.
Billy: Well, of course, I did. I mean, I know what kind of person Mackenzie is.
Amanda: Well, shouldn't I have known that? I mean, my God, I'm her mother! I gave birth to her. I raised her for 15 years, and yet I --
Billy: You didn't believe her.
Amanda: To my eternal regret.
Billy: How come?
Amanda: I just thought that she'd misinterpreted his behavior. Look, I'm not justifying what I did here. It's inexcusable. I know that. I'm only telling you how I felt at the time. It's a mistake Iíll suffer for as long as I live.
Billy: This had better be for real.
Amanda: It is, Billy. It is. So what you're telling me is that my biggest challenge is to convince Mackenzie of my sincerity.
Billy: Look, Macís got one of the most forgiving hearts of anyone I've ever known. So if what you're telling me is true, and you can convince Mackenzie of that, maybe you got a chance.
Michael: Of course I'll pay for the paternity test. And should the results show that the child is not mine, you will repay everything Iíve given you. See, Iíve drawn up an agreement also. I won't fight you on your decision to stay in town, though I think it's a mistake for both of us. However, in exchange for that concession, I expect you to sign this agreement not to mention to anyone your theory that the child is mine.
Isabella: You're so desperate to keep our little dalliance from certain parties -- not to mention the fact that we go way back, Michael.
Michael: So what?
Isabella: You used me to pry Christine away from her husband.
Michael: I was buying for time.
Isabella: You got a lot more than that, didn't you?
Michael: I had no control over that.
Isabella: I didn't hear you complaining, though. And I don't think the news will go down very well with your little blonde friend. Not to mention what your face is gonna look like after Paulís finished with it.
Michael: You know, I have a good mind to tell you to do your worst and damn the torpedoes.
Isabella: You'd like me to think that you're so cool right now. That it's a mere inconvenience if someone finds out about us.
Michael: Why should it matter to me?
Isabella: Your pitiful attempt to strong-arm me into signing this agreement proves that you're bluffing. But you know what? You're not gonna be able to bluff much longer, because right before I came here I ran into someone at the coffee house.
Chantal: Michael, Christine is here. Shall I send her in?
Michael: No, I'll come out.
Isabella: Christine! Perfect timing. She beat me to the punch.
Lynne: Mrs. Williams.
Mary: Hello, Lynne. I need to see my son.
Lynne: He's not here.
Mary: Oh, dear. When will he be back?
Lynne: I'm not sure.
Mary: Is he out on a job?
Lynne: Look, I better warn you in case they come back together. I don't think it's a good idea if you're here right now.
Mary: If who comes back together? Paul and Isabella?
Lynne: Isabella? No, Paul and Chris.
Mary: Christine is in town, too?
Lynne: Too? She came back for Ryanís funeral. She and Paul are meeting at Crimson Lights. Look, I know how you feel about their relationship, but I really think it's a good idea that they have some time to talk.
Paul: I wouldn't worry about that, Lynne. Chris and I are through talking. She's gone.
Nikki: This could take forever.
Jack: Yeah, if not longer.
Nikki: I wish we could hire somebody to do this.
Jack: We're looking for awfully confidential stuff.
Nikki: All right, look, this guy must have had some way of organizing these files.
Jack: Well, it certainly wasn't alphabetical.
Nikki: No, and it's not by date either.
Jack: We're gonna have to keep digging through it and hope we hit pay dirt.
Nikki: Poor you. I rope you into helping me with this, and Diane Jenkins showing up, you've had a hell of a week.
Jack: Yeah, yeah, you could say that again.
Nikki: So, what else happened with her that I don't know yet?
Jack: Oh, I was pretty rough on her. I said some pretty nasty things. She wanted to walk me down memory lane all the way back to when we first met.
Nikki: Well, that was a while ago.
Jack: Yeah, if only Iíd been smart enough not to go near her when she popped back into town, but no, smilin' Jack had to jump right back into the fire.
Nikki: Is that what you're afraid of? You're worried you'll revert to your old self?
Jack: I don't know. I don't know. I've had enough of bad memories with Diane, and I guess I'm worried I'm not as smart and together as I want to believe.
Diane: Au contraire, Ashley. I am far from miserable. I have a wonderful life; I have a thriving career, a fantastic group of friends --
Ashley: Obviously they don't know you very well yet.
Diane: You haven't the foggiest idea who I really am.
Ashley: Well, I don't think people like you change overnight, Diane.
Diane: "People like me"? You mean architects?
Ashley: As usual, talking with you just takes me someplace I don't want to go.
Diane: The feeling is mutual, my dear.
Ashley: Actually, I hope you are as happy as you say are.
Diane: I'll bet.
Ashley: Oh, I mean it. I hope that you can rise to the top of your profession, surrounded by loyal friends and lovers, Diane.
Diane: I'm waiting for the punch line.
Ashley: There isn't one. It's very simple, as long as you are happy and fulfilled someplace far away from here, you will stay clear of family and me. Now, would you mind finding Gina and just tell her to forget the table, Iíve lost my appetite.
Jack: You know, we don't know that Dianeís the awful mother you seem to think she is. I can't help wonder why you're so obsessed with this.
Nikki: Because this child's very existence is on my conscience. If I had gone to Victor and told him what she was up to, the child wouldn't even exist.
Jack: Let's not go there again. That doesn't help at all. Let's do what we came here to do and see if we can find out who the father of Dianeís son is.
Nikki: What worries me is, even if we do find out who he is, how is he gonna react when he's told that his sperm was illegally used to impregnate a woman he doesn't even know?
Jack: Who knows, maybe he'll be happy.
Nikki: Oh, well, maybe he's already married with six children. Or maybe he's 80 years old. Or maybe he's dead.
Jack: Nikki, stop! Stop. We've got a mountain of paperwork to climb here. I'd like to think we could get to the top of it before Christmas.
Katherine: I'm so sorry you have been through this, sweetheart. I truly am. Mackenzie, did you have any of these dreams before?
Mackenzie: Right after I ran away, but not for a long time.
Katherine: But it doesn't mean that you're going to have more nightmares, you know? This is just something that your mind does sometimes.
Mackenzie: I know why it happened, Grandma.
Mackenzie: Yesterday, I decided that I didn't want my mom to leave town, not right away at least. I wanted to talk to her more -- see if there was a chance we could have some sort of relationship again.
Katherine: What are you saying, Mackenzie?
Mackenzie: I think I'm having these dreams because she's still in Genoa City. All the bad memories are coming back. If I let her stay around, will the dreams ever stop?
Paul: Now, before you bombard me with a lot of questions, I don't want to talk about Chris. So, what can I do for you?
Mary: Were you aware that Isabella is in town?
Paul: And how did you know about that?
Mary: I ran into her at Ginaís. And well, she claims that she's been here all along, just didn't tell you.
Paul: You didn't believe her?
Mary: Well, it did seem odd at first, but now, you sound as if you knew.
Paul: Look, I really don't want to talk about this. Besides, I have a lot of work to do. I love you.
Paul: Lauren, I thought you'd be gone by now.
Lauren: I was worried about you.
Paul: Or maybe you were just waiting to tell me that Isabella Brogna is still in town? It seems like everybody knew but me.
Lauren: She's still here?
Paul: Apparently. I've heard it from two reliable sources.
Paul: Well, my mother just now, and before her, Christine.
Paul: She saw her at the coffee house before I arrived. Great timing, huh?
Lauren: So let me guess, you told Christine that Isabella left town. And now, she thinks you lied.
Paul: Oh, on the nose.
Lauren: Bad scene?
Paul: Yeah, bad scene. Who knows, maybe it's all for the best.
Isabella: What were you saying, Michael? It doesn't matter to you if people find out about us? I wouldn't keep your partner waiting, if I were you.
Michael: Christine, I had no idea you were in town. Why didn't you warn me?
Chris: I didn't realize I had to.
Michael: Well, this is the second time you just dropped in out of the blue.
Chris: Oh, Michael, I was in Los Angeles visiting Nina and doing some research. I heard Ryan died. So I came back for the funeral. Do you have a problem with that?
Michael: No, I'm sorry. I'm just a little edgy today.
Chris: Yeah, me, too. Anyway, I thought I'd come by and say hello on my way to the airport. Judging from your e-mails, it sounds like things are going well with Ms. Perez.
Michael: Yes, she's quite an asset.
Chris: Okay. Well, tell her I say hello and to keep up the good work.
Michael: I'll do that.
Chris: Listen, Chantal said you were meeting with someone. Maybe I should pop in and prove that you really do have a partner named Williams?
Michael: No, no, that's not necessary.
Chris: Okay. Well, then, I will get to the airport. I don't want to miss my flight.
Michael: I hate to see you leave town. You look exhausted. Are you sure you can't stay longer?
Chris: Ah, no. But I appreciate your concern.
Chris: Bye, Chantal.
Michael: Chantal, what exactly did you tell Christine about who I was in with?
Chantal: I said you were with a client, that's all.
Michael: Thank you.
Michael: You knew Christine was in town.
Isabella: I was about to tell you I saw her at the coffee house. I got the distinct feeling she recognized me.
Sharon: I don't want to doubt that things will get back to normal for us. I want my life back the way that it was.
Nick: You had some serious emotional trauma. Okay, and it's like any physical injury, it takes time to heal. You made love today, that was a first step.
Sharon: But I, you know, I wanted it to be wonderful. You know?
Nick: Baby, it was -- it was wonderful. Okay? It felt so good to just touch you and hold you.
Sharon: But it was different.
Nick: I expected that. Didn't you? Sharon, it was different, because we're different now. Okay, but that doesn't mean I love you any less. If anything, it means I love you more. We shared a terrible loss together. And that is exactly how we're going to get through it, together. I'll say it again, today was a step towards healing. That's how Iím looking at it.
Sharon: Well, you certainly have a positive attitude.
Nick: Baby, we're going to find our way back. Okay? We will.
Sharon: You have a really wonderful, positive attitude.
Nick: I love you so much.
Sharon: I love you, too.
