Nick: Mom? Mom, you here?
Victor: Hey, son.
Nick: Hey. Dad, what are you doing here?
Victor: I'm still working. Your sister's still sleeping.
Nick: Oh, good. She needs her rest. So, do you know where Mom is?
Victor: Miguel said she went out for a while. She told him to call her on her cell phone as soon as Victoria woke up.
Nick: Oh, so you're keeping an eye on Vick?
Victor: Sit down, son. There's something we need to discuss. You know, Ryanís death is not only a personal loss, but obviously, it's a loss for the company as well.
Nick: Yeah. We've got to restructure things at the office.
Victor: Right. And normally, that decision would be Victoriaís.
Nick: I don't think she's gonna be up for that. Do you?
Victor: That's exactly how I feel. I think you and Neil should assume that responsibility, okay?
Nick: Yeah. Neil and I already talked about that. We will. But I've got to wonder when Victoria will even be ready to get back to work.
Victor: Knowing her, it will be sooner than later.
Nick: I'm not sure that's wise.
Victor: Neither am I. How are the kids?
Nick: Well, Noahís too young to understand what's going on. Cassie's -- she's hanging in there.
Victor: How are things between you and Sharon?
Sharon: I brought some biscuits out in case you were hungry.
Doris: Well, thank you. It's been a long time, Sharon, since you and I had a chance to talk.
Sharon: So much has happened.
Doris: How is poor Victoria holding up?
Sharon: She's having a rough time. She's trying not to let anyone see how badly she's suffering, but I can feel it.
Doris: Well, you're a young woman. You can imagine how hard it would be losing your husband.
Sharon: Yeah, but they weren't even married yet. Victoria and Ryan had such a perfect future ahead of them.
Doris: It's heartbreaking. It's a real tragedy, no doubt. I just hope you won't let this become an even bigger tragedy.
Sharon: What are you talking about?
Doris: You and Nicholas. I've been real worried, Sharon, since the last time we talked. You were not in a good frame of mind. I just hope things are better now between you and your husband. Are they?
Nikki: What's in that one?
Jack: Extracurricular activities.
Nikki: Oh, God. I don't want to know.
Jack: Oh, Nik, this is like looking for a needle in a haystack.
Nikki: Look, there's got to be something in here about who the father of that baby is, because we have to find it.
Jack: Yeah, easier said than done.
Amelia: Oh, boy! You two look like something the cat dragged in.
Jack: Yeah. It's a little dusty down here.
Amelia: Well, it's a basement. What do you expect? Coffee?
Nikki: Oh, thank you.
Amelia: No luck, huh?
Jack: Your husband was very meticulous.
Amelia: Oh, that he was.
Nikki: You have no idea how he kept his files?
Amelia: Sorry. "The only way to keep a secret is not to tell anyone." That was Dennis' motto. What's this all about anyway? What are you hoping to find down here in my basement?
Chantal: I spoke to Mr. Montgomery. He agreed to rethink his offer.
Michael: In other words, he caved.
Chantal: That's one way of putting it.
Michael: Anything else?
Chantal: Not unless you need me to do something.
Michael: No, I donít.
Chantal: This contract has something to do with Ms. Brogna?
Michael: Don't bother.
Chantal: Would you like me to file it?
Michael: No, it's garbage. Thank you.
Michael: Look, Chantal, I have a splitting headache, so if you don't mind --
Phyllis: Hi, Michael.
Chantal: Mr. Baldwin can't be disturbed.
Phyllis: Then it's good you're leaving.
Michael: What do you want?
Phyllis: Fine, thank you. And how are you?
Michael: Look, Phyllis, Iím not in the mood.
Phyllis: Really? I thought you'd be in seventh heaven.
Phyllis: Because Christineís in town.
Michael: Not anymore.
Phyllis: She's gone?
Michael: Who knows when she'll be back?
Ned: Hi, Amanda. How did your meeting with Billy go?
Amanda: I don't know.
Ned: What did he want?
Amanda: To make sure I wasn't hurting Mackenzie. He's such a great guy. I mean, he's so protective of my daughter. You know, he's the one that talked her into going to the train station, stopped me from leaving.
Ned: Did you reassure him?
Amanda: I don't know, Ned. I mean, all I could do was make promises.
Ned: Well, don't forget what you did for Colleen. That had to mean something to Mac.
Amanda: Yeah, but was it enough?
Ned: Time will tell.
Amanda: Even if she lets me stay here in Genoa City, how do I win back her trust?
Ned: I can't answer that, but don't give up, Amanda. If you do, you'll regret it for the rest of your life.
Billy: Hey. You called. I'm here. What is it? Mac, what's wrong?
Mackenzie: I had a really terrifying dream last night.
Billy: About what?
Mackenzie: My stepdad and the time he -- you know, I've been thinking. I know why Iím having nightmares now. It's because I told my mom to stick around. I made a mistake, Billy -- a huge mistake. I never should have told my mom to stay.
Sean: Don't worry about the promotional materials. I've got it handled. How are you doing?
Jill: I still can't believe he's gone.
Sean: Yeah, Ryan was a great guy.
Jill: Thank you for understanding why I had to go to the funeral alone.
Sean: Whatever you need, Jill.
Jill: I just -- I just can't imagine life without Ryan.
Sean: Yet life goes on.
Jill: Yes, it does.
Sean: Which is why I made plans to put a smile back on that beautiful face.
Jill: What are you talking about?
Sean: Two tickets to San Francisco.
Amelia: You're in my house. I have a right to know what you're looking for.
Nikki: It's -- it's very personal.
Amelia: So what is it? Some juicy tidbit you're trying to keep out of the tabloids?
Nikki: Yeah, something like that.
Amelia: Oh, I never did think much of those rags. They're always looking to make hay out of other people's private affairs. I'll leave the coffee pot.
Jack: Appreciate it, Mrs. Murphy. This is taking longer than I thought it would.
Nikki: What, do you have to be somewhere?
Jack: I'm having dinner with Phyllis, but that's a few hours from now.
Nikki: Yeah, we've got some more time. So how are things with you and your fiancťe?
Jack: Actually, things couldn't be better. In fact -- never mind.
Nikki: What, do you have news?
Jack: I shouldn't get into it under the circumstances.
Nikki: Is this about the wedding?
Jack: Yeah, yeah. We're moving things up.
Nikki: Really? How soon?
Jack: A couple of weeks.
Nikki: You are in a hurry.
Jack: We are madly in love.
Nikki: Apparently so.
Jack: And Phyllis and wedding planners don't exactly mix.
Nikki: Oh. So what are you going to do?
Jack: So we're just going to pare things down a little bit.
Nikki: Are you okay with that?
Jack: If it gets us married any sooner, yeah, I'm all for it.
Nikki: You cannot stand to not be married.
Jack: Not when I have a woman like Phyllis in my life.
Nikki: She's a very lucky lady.
Jack: Well, Iím a lucky man. You have no idea how lucky, Nik.
Doris: Sweetheart, you still haven't answered my question. Are things better between you and your husband?
Sharon: Well, we made love this morning. Does that make you feel better?
Doris: The question is, did it make you feel better?
Sharon: Yeah. Of course it did, Mom. What kind of question is that?
Doris: I have the strangest feeling.
Doris: You're having a hard time talking to me.
Sharon: Well, this is kind of personal, don't you think?
Doris: But you seem so edgy, as if everything were not quite right.
Sharon: Mom --
Cassie: Hey, Mommy.
Sharon: Hey, sweetie.
Cassie: Hey, Grandma Doris! I didn't know you were coming over.
Doris: Well, I wanted to spend some time with your mother.
Cassie: Am I interrupting?
Sharon: No, of course not, sweetie. Tell me all about your day at school.
Cassie: It was busy. They're giving us so much work right now, you know, right before the holidays, especially in science.
Victor: You didn't answer the question, son.
Nick: Why do you still want to talk about Sharon right now?
Victor: Are things better between the two of you now?
Nick: Yeah, they're better.
Victor: That's not very convincing.
Nick: Yeah, Dad. Things are good, all right? It's just --
Victor: Just what, son?
Nick: I don't know, Dad. It's like there's something in the air between us. You know, we're reaching out to each other, but it's just not happening.
Victor: Well, I mean, don't you think that's unnatural, considering what the two of you have gone through?
Nick: I know that, all right? And I'm trying to remind myself of that.
Victor: Things are tough sometimes in a marriage. I mean, I know. But if the two of you love each other, you just need patience.
Nick: Dad, I can have all the patience in the world, but this distance between us is worrying me, 'cause I know it all goes back to that one question --
Victor: What's that?
Nick: Was it my baby or Matt Clarkís?
Sean: I know that San Francisco is one of your favorite cities. So, I thought a romantic weekend there would cheer you up.
Jill: That is so sweet of you.
Sean: I checked your schedule. You are all clear.
Jill: Yeah! I thought we were going camping.
Sean: Are you sure you're up for that now?
Jill: Why wouldn't I be?
Sean: You've suffered a terrible loss, Jill. Wouldn't you prefer to be pampered?
Jill: I hadn't even considered that.
Sean: We can sleep under the stars another night. I want this trip to be about you. And you're gonna love it.
Jill: Knowing you, I'm sure you've pulled out all the stops.
Sean: You bet. After we pull ourselves out of bed in the morning, a limousine will be waiting to whisk us off to the wine country, where we will have an afternoon of fermented indulgence.
Jill: Oh, that sounds wonderful! But, you know, your great adventure in the wilderness sounds wonderful, too.
Sean: We can do that another time.
Jill: No. No, there is one thing Iíve learned from Ryanís death. And that is to face my fears.
Sean: What are you saying?
Jill: I'm saying I want to go bungee jumping. I want to do something that I never in a million years ever thought that I would do.
Amanda: Thank you for believing in me, Ned.
Ned: I want to see things work out between you and Mackenzie.
Amanda: Wish she felt the same way.
Ned: Give it time.
Amanda: You know, I think about when I first came here. I was wrong for keeping you in the dark about things.
Ned: Well, you know our policy.
Amanda: Yeah, but my situation's different.
Ned: Because you're Mackenzieís mother.
Amanda: Yeah, I should have told you from the beginning.
Ned: Why didn't you?
Amanda: I was afraid you'd ask me to leave.
Ned: We don't work that way.
Amanda: Yeah, well, I know that now. I'm sorry.
Ned: You were in a difficult position.
Amanda: That's no excuse.
Ned: Look, we both want what's best for Mackenzie. Which is why this has to be her decision. FYI, Iíve told Mac and Billy I believe you're sincere.
Amanda: Thank you.
Ned: Though, I do have one question -- what exactly is your husband Ralphís role in all this?
Billy: Mac, I don't blame you for being frightened.
Mackenzie: It was so real, Billy. I can still feel him touching me.
Billy: Come on, look, it's over. I'm here for you. Don't you forget that. Have you had dreams like this before?
Mackenzie: When I ran away.
Billy: Then they stopped?
Mackenzie: Until now.
Billy: Well, it could be a one-time thing.
Mackenzie: You're saying I shouldn't worry?
Billy: I just wonder if this is all your mom's fault.
Mackenzie: How can you say that? If it weren't for my mom --
Billy: Mac, you have a chance to start over.
Mackenzie: So? Why this hard-sell about my mom?
Billy: I talked to her today.
Mackenzie: Oh, great.
Billy: Mac, would you just listen to me, please?! Look, I made it clear -- she'd better be on the level, or else. Look, she just wants to make things right, which is why I think you should chill a little before you ship her off.
Mackenzie: Because I have all these "issues," right?
Billy: No, because she's your mom. The only one you'll ever have.
Mackenzie: Oh, please, I don't care. If having her means more nightmares --
Katherine: Billy has a point, dear. Mackenzie told me everything this morning. Darling, I realize your dream must have been very disturbing, but perhaps, it's the price you're gonna have to pay for the opportunity to make peace with your mother.
Mackenzie: You say it like it's so easy.
Katherine: Stop, you know what Iím talking about.
Mackenzie: Grandma, it's more than just a dream, okay? What if having my mom here opens up another door?! What if my stepdad finds me?
Sean: I know why you're doing this, Jill.
Jill: I'm doing this because of Ryan. Because I am realizing how precious life is. And I want to live mine to the fullest from now on.
Sean: You're not doing this to please me?
Jill: Oh, baby, either way, I promise you will be well taken care of.
Sean: What about our San Francisco trip?
Jill: I don't know. We can go during the holidays. Do you know how much Iíve been looking forward to squeezing into a sleeping bag with you and making love under the stars? Sweetie, this was your idea. Are you having problems with it now?
Sean: Of course not.
Jill: Well, good, because we should get a move on it, actually. Ooh -- our SUV awaits. Do you realize that we're going to be jumping into thin air with nothing but these big rubber bands tied around our ankles? Oh, sweetie, this is gonna be an experience I will never forget. And it's all because of you, my adventurous one.
Nikki: Are you holding out on me?
Jack: About what?
Nikki: That's what I want to know.
Jack: Are you really gonna start ragging on me about Phyllis?
Nikki: Would I do that?
Jack: We're happy.
Nikki: I know, but I know how important children are to you.
Jack: I guess you're questioning my decision to marry her?
Nikki: I just want to make sure that you've made peace with the situation, and I see that you have. I'm very happy for you.
Jack: Are you really?
Nikki: From the bottom of my heart.
Jack: Thank you.
Nikki: You have made peace with --
Jack: Nik, drop it!
Nikki: There's just something about the way --
Jack: There is nothing for you to be worried about. Now, just drop it.
Phyllis: All right. Christine's gone. No wonder you're so grumpy. You should look on the bright side.
Michael: Which is?
Phyllis: Well, she didn't exactly kiss and make up with her husband.
Michael: You know what? You can do us both a favor, and just stop right there.
Phyllis: All right, Iím not here to talk about Christine.
Michael: Why are you here?
Phyllis: To inquire about another woman in your life. Diane Jenkins.
Michael: What about her?
Phyllis: I'm assuming she popped by to see you.
Michael: As a matter of fact, she did.
Phyllis: Please make my day and tell me she's gone, too.
Michael: You're in luck.
Phyllis: Thank God.
Michael: But why should you -- oh, please.
Michael: Don't tell me you're insecure because they were engaged at one time?
Phyllis: No. No.
Michael: They're ancient history.
Phyllis: I know. I know that. That's what Jack told me.
Michael: Well, it's true.
Phyllis: How do you know?
Michael: Diane told me. She got a very chilly reception here in Genoa City -- from your fiancť, especially. It sent her packing.
Phyllis: And that's supposed to make me feel better?
Michael: Would you prefer they get a room?
Phyllis: Oh, you are such a guy.
Michael: What is that supposed to mean?
Phyllis: I'm saying that she was so hurt by the way that Jack treated her, she had to leave town.
Phyllis: She still has feelings for him!
Michael: Phyllis, you're gonna make yourself crazy about this. Jack loves you. You and Jack are engaged. Diane has left town. She probably will never darken anyone's doorway here again.
Phyllis: You don't understand. You don't understand.
Michael: Okay, enlighten me.
Phyllis: She still gets to Jack.
Michael: Yes. He wants to throw her out of a window.
Phyllis: Yes, that's what Iím saying!
Michael: You're not making any sense!
Phyllis: I know, I know, I know. I think it's the hormones.
Michael: The hormones? Don't tell me this has anything to do with in vitro fertilization?
Phyllis: Yeah. You promise not to breathe a word?
Michael: I promise.
Phyllis: Okay. It's official. Jack and I are trying for a baby.
Doris: Well, if you have this much homework, you'd better get started right away.
Cassie: You're right, Grandma.
Sharon: I'll check it later for you, sweetie, okay?
Cassie: Okay. Thanks, Mom.
Sharon: Hey, sweetie?
Sharon: You know, I overheard something a while back. And I think we should talk about it.
Sharon: Well, I heard you say that you wanted to stay in your old room, but you didn't want to mention it to me because you didn't want to upset me.
Cassie: Oh, you heard that? I'm sorry, Mommy.
Sharon: Oh, sweetie, don't be. You can stay right where you are, as long as you want.
Cassie: Oh, Mommy, that's great! Until there's another baby on the way. Then Iíll gladly move into my new room, okay?
Sharon: Sure. Okay.
Doris: Another baby?
Sharon: Don't hold your breath.
Doris: I thought you told me --
Sharon: It's true. Nicholas and I are doing better, I think.
Doris: You think?
Sharon: Well, it's really not that easy.
Doris: Sharon, the last time we talked, you said something that shocked me. You said you thought Nicholas might be relieved about you losing the baby. It's worried me ever since.
Sharon: Oh, Mom, I was such a mess back then. You know, that was right after it had happened, and I was just so depressed. And I know that's not how Nick felt about the baby. I know that he felt his own grief.
Doris: But something is still eating away at you. What is it?
Victor: Son, I gotta tell you I'm stunned that Matt Clark is still an issue. The guy's dead.
Nick: Yeah, he's dead. But he's proof that evil can live on.
Victor: What is really going on between you and Sharon?
Nick: Dad, I don't know. I can't explain it. There's this distance between us. I don't want it there. And I'm pretty sure Sharon doesn't want it there. We don't talk about it.
Victor: I mean, think about it for a minute. When a woman has gone through the kind of trauma that she has gone through, it takes a while to get over that.
Nick: I know that, Dad. Look, I'm gonna ask you again. Was I wrong in feeling like I had to know whose baby that was?
Victor: No, you were not wrong. I understand that perfectly well. I would have asked the same question. Trust me, any man would have. Don't you think that's a moot point now?
Nick: It's not moot for Sharon.
Victor: Look, I understand this is an issue between the two of you. Considering the fact that the child is gone, Matt Clark is gone, why don't you just accept that it was your child and go on living? Stop torturing yourself.
Doris: I don't care how upset or depressed you were. I can't imagine you saying something like that about Nick.
Sharon: There was a lot that happened that you don't know about. And it's such a complicated story. It all has to do with Matt Clark.
Doris: Oh, that name again. When is it gonna end?
Sharon: You don't know how many times Iíve asked myself the same question. And I don't know if it ever will end.
Michael: Well, you're actually going to do it. You're going to try for a kid.
Phyllis: Yeah. Don't act so surprised. You knew I was going to.
Michael: Well, look, Phyllis, but sometimes your advance bulletins aren't always quite accurate. What happened to your big surprise? I thought your whole plan was to put all this together without letting Jack in on it.
Phyllis: Well, as you suspected, that proved unrealistic. Anyway, I'm glad I told him. It's been wonderful.
Michael: Well, I wish you luck.
Phyllis: Thank you. Imagine me with a baby in my arms again.
Michael: Yeah. It's nice to see Miss Phyllis all maternal.
Phyllis: Yeah. Hey, you know what? You should think of having a little one of your own. Kids can be a very stabilizing force. [Michael laughs] What? Why are you laughing? That's not a totally ludicrous idea. What's wrong with you? Okay, fine. On the other hand, you have told me time and time again you're not interested in being a daddy. Fine.
Michael: Let's not even discuss it. Why are we talking about this?
Phyllis: Sorry. I hit a nerve.
Michael: You know, Phyllis, I am very excited for you. I hope everything turns out exactly as you've planned and that any day now you and Jack will be surrounded by lots of little ankle biters. But you know what? I have a lot of work to do. So if you don't mind --
Phyllis: All right, all right. I'll go, Iíll go. But, I just have one more thing to say. The best part of this is, of course, I will be thrilled to be the mother of Jack's child. But I won't have to be insecure about Diane Jenkins or any other woman. Well, bye.
Nikki: What? You got it?
Jack: I think this might be the box. Come here.
Nikki: Is it medical cases?
Jack: Look at this file.
Nikki: Huh!! "Robinson Reproductive Labs."
Jack: Give it to me.
Nikki: Come on. Does it have the fathers?
Jack: I don't see any names.
Nikki: There's got to be something.
Jack: Two serial numbers here.
Nikki: What does that mean?
Jack: I don't know. Maybe it's their filing system.
Nikki: For the samples that were switched.
Jack: Which means if one of these turns out to be Victor's --
Nikki: Then the other one is the father of Dianeís baby.
Amanda: Ralph has nothing to do with this!
Ned: Are you sure?
Amanda: Look, I don't want to see him again, and neither does Mackenzie!
Ned: I only ask --
Amanda: I don't want to talk about this anymore, please?!
Ned: Of course. I'm on your side, Amanda.
Amanda: Yeah, I know.
Ned: It would be wonderful if the shelter could help you and Mackenzie find your way back to each other.
Amanda: I pray for that. Look, you talk to her. Do you think there's any hope?
Ned: The last time we talked, she was still on the fence.
Amanda: But she came to the train station, Ned. She asked me to stay.
Ned: That's certainly a good sign.
Amanda: If only I could be in her life again, watch her grow, become a woman. I know. I can get ahead of myself. I gotta tell you, Ned. For the first time in years, this might actually be possible. We might actually have a second chance.
Katherine: Your stepfather, darling? He can't hurt you.
Billy: Mac, your grandma is right. There's no way your stepdad would come to town. Too many people would go after him, including me.
Mac: But what if I started spending more time with my mom?
Billy: You think he'd track her down to find you?
Mac: I can't take that chance. Just the thought of seeing that man again -- no, I canít. I really wish things could be different, but I don't want my mom here. Not anymore. It's too big a risk.
Nick: Dad, I agree with what you're saying, that we need to go on with living. And I think that's what Sharon wants, too. But it's just not that simple.
Victor: Why isn't it?
Nick: Because Sharon never understood how I felt. She thought that we could just raise the child without ever knowing who the father was. And that issue was never resolved between us.
Victor: What difference does it make?
Nick: Because, Dad, the child is gone, and now it can never be resolved.
Victor: I still don't understand, son.
Nick: I can say until Iím blue in the face that I share in this loss with her and that I grieve, too. But all she remembers is that I had doubts. And we were arguing about those doubts when she fell.
Victor: Does she blame you for the fall?
Nick: I don't know.
Victor: Boy, oh, boy. It's a difficult issue, isn't it? But you know, son, if the child had lived, you would have had to deal with a different set of problems. You would have to had to determine who the father of the child is. But unfortunately, the child didn't live. So, you know, be patient with her on that. For a woman to lose a child is a very serious thing. It hits a woman harder than it hits a man. And I'm sure, in time, she'll get over it.
Nick: You really think she will?
Victor: All I know is the that two of you love each other deeply. If there's one thing Iíve learned, it's that time and love are the greatest healers in the world.
Doris: Sharon, are you saying Nicholas actually questioned the paternity of the child?
Sharon: Well, he was so afraid that Matt may have raped me -- and that's when the baby was conceived. So he insisted on doing a paternity test, even before the child was born. And then, if the baby wasn't Nick's, he wanted to give it up for adoption right at birth. You can imagine what that did to me. So when I lost the baby --
Doris: There was no need to worry anymore. That's what you meant about Nick being relieved. But he never said that.
Sharon: Well, he wouldn't.
Doris: Oh, Sharon, I don't know what to say.
Sharon: I don't know either, Mom. I just wish that this whole question about the paternity had never come up, that Nick never had to question it. God, I wish that we hadn't fought about it. But you know, maybe it was wrong of me not to see it from my husband's point of view. Maybe I failed him, too, by not being more understanding.
Nurse: This just came in. It's from the DNA genetics lab for Sharon Newman in care of this office.
Dr. Thompson: The test results.
Nurse: Would you like me to forward them to Mrs. Newman?
Dr. Thompson: No.
Nurse: Shall I let her know that they've arrived?
Dr. Thompson: I still think it was a mistake Sharon had this test done. At the time, she felt it was necessary. Maybe now she's changed her mind. I'm going to put this in her file unopened, and hope she never asks for it.
Doris: Sharon, listen to me. I can see you're being torn apart by these doubts. But these are questions that are never going to have any answers. What you and Nicholas have been through, both of you losing a child, it's heartbreaking. But it's time now to turn back to the living.
Sharon: I know. I'm a very lucky woman. I'm married to a good man, a man that loves me. And I love him. If we can just put all of this sadness behind us -- if I can do that and get on with my life -- but I wanted -- that's what I want so much, for everything to go back the way that it was.
