Miguel: Excuse me, Mrs. Newman.

Nikki: Yes, Miguel?

Miguel: I was surprised to see Victoria drive off.

Nikki: Yeah. She wanted to put in a few hours at the office.

Miguel: So soon?

Nikki: I know. It worries me, too.

Victor: That's probably how Victoria wanted it.

Miguel: I'll drive into town to keep an eye on her.

Victor: That's very nice of you. Miguel, it won't be necessary, all right? Thank you.

Nikki: You know, with everything she's been going through, maybe we should've discouraged her, at least made her wait till tomorrow.

Victor: I know what you're saying, but we can't shield her from everything, you know. She has to go on with her life.

Nikki: Doesn't it worry you? She's alone at the office at night.

Victor: I understand you're concerned, but Iíve already called security in the building and apparently she's not alone. Neil Winters is there as well.

Nikki: Good.

Victoria: All right, troops. Let's get to work.

Neil: Vicki? What are you doing here?

Victoria: Help me out, Neil. I'm trying to get into this.

Neil: Yeah, but I -- I thought --

Victoria: No, no, I know. I'm just gonna work for a couple of hours. I'm not gonna overdo it.

Neil: You're seriously gonna do work now?

Victoria: Well, it's always been my salvation.

Neil: A couple things I was working on.

Victoria: So -- fill me in on everything Iíve missed.

Jill: What? You haven't done any of this before? Not camping or bungee jumping, white-water rafting?

Sean: Nada. I'm a total virgin. Sorry I misled you.

Jill: Oh. Okay. Then I guess my question to you is, why, Sean?

Sean: Stupid, macho fantasy. I started reading up about all these extreme sports. And I just got so excited, and it just kind of snowballed from there. I didn't think you'd actually call my bluff, follow through with it. But --

Jill: You just thought that I would wimp out on you.

Sean: And you proved me so wrong.

Jill: So now you know.

Sean: When we were standing up on that bridge and we were looking straight down, getting ready to jump, I glanced over at you. You looked so alive. I mean, you could tell that your heart was racing. But, man, you were going through with it. Meanwhile, what was going through me mind was -- I didn't bring enough underwear.

[Jill laughs]

John: You wanna call off the trip? Are you sure?

Traci: Yes. Yes, Iím sure, Dad.

John: Look, Traci, Ashleyís here. Do you mind if I put you on the speaker?

Traci: No, that's fine. Go ahead.

Ashley: Hey, Trace.

Traci: Hello, Ashley.

John: You know, Traci, you realize you're catching us off-guard here.

Traci: Dad, things -- they're really just not good here. And I'm sorry. I really donít feel like a vacation right now -- it's out of the question.

John: Because of the tension between you and Colleen.

Ashley: Look, sweetie, we're not trying to second-guess you.

John: If there's any chance you could reconsider your decision --

Ashley: -- It could make a huge difference.

Traci: Really? How?

John: Honey, look. I just seem to be able to get through to her. You know, and if there's tension between the two of you right now, it could help.

Ashley: Unless you think that maybe it's sending the wrong message, like you're rewarding her for bad behavior.

Traci: Ashley, to be honest with you, I am almost at the end of rope. And right now, I don't know what's right.

John: Well, I certainly think it's worth a try. I mean, getting away, neutral territory.

Traci: You think?

John: I simply think it's a chance for the family to work together. And hopefully we can solve this problem.

Traci: I don't know. I don't know. All right, I will talk to Colleen. Just let me see how it feels, okay?

Ashley: Okay, we'll keep our fingers crossed, okay?

Traci: I'll get back to you.

Ashley: Bye.

John: Bye-bye, dear.

Traci: Colleen? [Knock on the door] Honey? I just talked to your grandpa on the phone and -- I've been reconsidering the --[Knocks on the door] Colleen?! I cannot believe she has done this! Dammit!

Colleen: I cannot believe what a witch she is being. First I am grounded for the rest of my life. Now this.

Ricky: I know. It makes me wanna light up just hearing about it.

Colleen: You think this is funny?

Ricky: I think you're too uptight. Just take a hit. You'll feel better.

Colleen: Is that your answer for everything?

Ricky: You don't see me getting ulcers. Come on, baby, just relax.

[Doorbell rings]

Billy: So I guess you gave your mom the boot. Is she on a train already?

Mackenzie: Actually, I don't know what her plans are.

Billy: Did you change your mind?

Mackenzie: I'm not sure what I did. I went to the shelter thinking that I was gonna tell her to leave.

Billy: Oh, please, tell me you didn't.

Mackenzie: No. But I didn't tell her to stay, either.

Billy: Come on, Mac. If you really wanted her gone, she would be.

Mackenzie: Why are you on my case? I never said it was simple.

Billy: Yeah, you did. "I never wanna see her again." How many times have you told me that? But I think you knew deep down you should not send your mom away. 'Cause you will end up regretting it.

♫ I can't believe what Iím feeling

there's a different look in your eyes

you want to go and the fear of barely breathing

your words don't mean a thing except good-bye

just walk away don't turn around again

'cause it hurt so much that I can't feel a thing ♫

Larry: Well, Miss Nikki, you said I should get out and get a social life. Hi.

Amanda: Hello.

Larry: Are you new in town? It sounds like an old line. I didn't mean to --

Amanda: It's a classic because it's good.

Larry: Are you nervous?

Amanda: Should I be?

Larry: No, no, I'm just trying to be friendly. That's all.

Amanda: Well, I have no problem with friendly.

Larry: Well, that's good. Nice to hear that, 'cause sometimes I think I freak people out.

Amanda: Really? Why is that?

Larry: Well, they take a look at me and then, you know, make assumptions without --

Amanda: Ain't no problem with they way you look.

Larry: Hmm. You, either. I'm Larry. Larry Warton.

Amanda: Amanda Browning.

Larry: Look, would you mind if I sat down?

Victor: You know I wouldn't have let Victoria go if I didn't think it was for the best.

Nikki: I know. But, Victor, sometimes work isn't always the best answer.

Victor: I'd rather have her work than crawl into her shell. I think it's about time she faces up to the reality that Ryan is dead.

Nikki: Are you referring to her dream?

Victor: Maybe there's some things beyond our understanding.

Nikki: But you don't really think that Ryan came to Victoria --

Victor: If it helped her to feel better, to believe that she had one last visit from Ryan from beyond the grave, then why take that away from her.

Nikki: Well, it is kind of strange, waking up with that ring on her finger. She was certain she had it in the nightstand.

Victor: Well, sweetheart, many plausible explanations for that, I'm sure.

Nikki: Well, right now I'm like Victoria. I don't want plausible. I want magic. You know what this has forced me to think about?

Victor: What?

Nikki: That time so many years ago when we thought that you had been killed -- and how devastating it was to say good-bye to you. It was like a piece of my heart died with you. And now, I know what Victoria is going through. I feel her heart breaking. Oh, thank God I had a happy ending. But she isn't going to, Victor. She isn't going to.

Mackenzie: Billy, we've been through this.

Billy: I know. And I talked to Jack earlier, and he said I should stay out of it. Mac, I can't. Amanda is your mother.

Mackenzie: So what? Jill is your mother. Look at all the stuff you've been through with her. What have you gotten out of it?

Billy: We're not talking about me right now.

Mackenzie: How convenient.

Billy: Mac, you're scaring me. Pushing your mom away is not a little mistake. It is a big mistake. One that you could end up regretting for the rest of your life.

Mackenzie: Here we go again --

Billy: All right, look, you know what? I'm done talking. Right now, Iím telling you -- you can't do this. I won't let you do it!

Mackenzie: Billy, I love you, and I know you love me, too. But you have no idea what it felt like.

Billy: Banishing your mom is a totally wrong thing to do!

Mackenzie: Can we please not fight?

Billy: We're not fighting, I just --,

Mackenzie: Check this out.

Billy: This is the guy who put you through hell? Now, he's looking for your mom. What does this mean?

Mackenzie: Not much, probably. He sent it to shelters all over the country. Obviously, he has no idea where she is. There's no real threat of him showing up here.

Billy: Yeah, but he's looking for her. He went to some trouble, and he spent some time on this --

Mackenzie: Are you trying to scare me here?

Billy: No. No, Mac, Iím sorry. I'm sorry. How did your mom react?

Mackenzie: She said she wants nothing to do with him.

Billy: That's good.

Mackenzie: That doesn't mean he can't --

Billy: Hey -- hey, stop looking for excuses to push her away, okay? There are no sure bets in life. But that doesn't mean you never take a chance, right?

Larry: Look, if you want me to get lost, just say the word.

Amanda: No, go ahead. Sit.

Larry: Thanks. I saw you walk in. You looked like you were a little uncomfortable. So I figured Iíd come over and, you know, share a friendly face -- not that my face is that friendly looking, but --

Amanda: Now, stop putting yourself down. It gets old.

Larry: You're right. Actually Iím Mel Gibsonís twin.

Amanda: Don't push it.

Larry: So, I'm gonna ask you again. Are you new to town? Or are you just new to Nick Newmanís coffee haven?

Amanda: Well, actually this is my third time here. It's a nice place, I like it. I just don't know if it's okay for me to be here.

Larry: Why? Because you're not a teenager? So what? So are you gonna answer me?

Amanda: Oh, well, Iíve been here in Genoa City since early fall.

Larry: Really? And where have you been hiding?

Amanda: I'm staying at the shelter.

Larry: Oh, you mean, the dog pound?

Amanda: Ha, ha. No, silly, the homeless shelter.

Larry: Oh.

Amanda: I've been a little down on my luck.

Larry: Well, you're talkin' to the king, all right? I've been there, Iíve done that. You have any luck finding any work around?

Amanda: Just some odds and ends around the shelter. That's about it. I mean, I'd like to find a real job, but I don't know how long Iím gonna be stickin' around.

Larry: So a job would give you a reason to stay here.

Amanda: Well, it would be nice to live someplace else besides the homeless shelter. But I don't --

Larry: What do you do for work?

Amanda: Well, my last job -- I was cleaning motel rooms. Not very exciting.

Larry: I'm in the cleaning business, too. I'm actually a custodian in an office building. I mean, the place is really cool where I work. Maybe you could find something there.

Amanda: Where?

Larry: Jabot Cosmetics. The people that run the place are really big in this town. Maybe you've heard of them -- the Abbott family?

Colleen: For all I know, my mom set the whole thing up. I wouldn't put it past her --

Ricky: What do you mean?

Colleen: Having my granddad call. Talking to me about this fabulous trip. Get me so psyched about leaving this hellhole --

Ricky: Then pulling the rug out from under you.

Colleen: You should've seen her face when she told me. She practically smiled. "Bad news, Colleen, we're not going!"

Ricky: Your parents are really that nasty?

Colleen: My mom is. But not my granddad. He would never stab me in the back that way.

Ricky: You really miss him, don't you?

Colleen: Yeah. It's just so mean. I would've loved to have see him. He's the one person I can trust in my life. Ricky, no, I don't need that right now.

Ricky: Fine, whatever. Just at least have a toke. You're making me dizzy walking around in all those circles.

Colleen: Mom, Dad -- what are you doing here?!

Neil: I think for this campaign, we're gonna have to keep in mind that this is going to be a very different kind of Valentineís Day.

Victoria: Yeah, I mean, people are gonna wanna hear something a little deeper than "won't you be my valentine?"

Neil: At the same time, we don't want to come off too heavy.

Victoria: No, no, our campaign should have real sincerity, I mean, real feeling. And at the same time, we need an upbeat, positive message.

Neil: Vicki, we're walking one hell of a thin line, aren't we? You know, with everything that's going on in the world these days, there are a lot of unknowns.

[Victoria remembering]

Ryan: There are a lot of unknowns.

Neil: So what do you think? Should we farm this one out, under the circumstances. If you don't feel like doing it, I understand --

Victoria: No, no, no, no, no. This is my division. This is something that I wanna handle.

[Victoria remembering]

Ryan: Sorry. There's something I need to handle.

Neil: Okay, let's get down to basics. What is Valentineís Day really all about? I mean, what is it that people are trying to express? Our advertising can help them put their sentiments into some kind of concrete form.

Victoria: Right.

Neil: What is the customer trying to say -- "I want you to know how much I love you."

[Victoria remembering]

Ryan: I want you to know how much I love you.

Victoria: I do. I do know that, Ryan. I love you, too.

Ryan: These past few months, I've never been happier in my life.

Neil: Vicki, you okay?

Victoria: Yeah, Iím fine.

Neil: Because we can always do this later.

Victoria: No, let's go on.

Neil: Okay. Hmm, how's this grab you? "For the one you love -- or want to love."

Victoria: Sounds a little like a come-on, but maybe.

Neil: Hey, what better occasion?

Victoria: Yeah, but you said that this campaign needs to be a little bit more serious.

Neil: Yeah, true. Although, there's no guarantee that people really want that.

[Victoria remembering]

Ryan: Superstition doesn't have a prayer against love. And we've got plenty of it. We're surrounded by it. That's why I know in my heart, everything will be all right us, today and always. I guarantee it.

Neil: Vicki, this really isn't working out.

Victoria: Sorry, I guess I'm a little more tired than I thought. I'm gonna go home.

Neil: That's what you should do.

Victoria: Hey, I got my feet wet, right? That's something.

Neil: You want me to keep working on that slogan?

Victoria: Yeah, you go ahead. Don't wait for me. See you later, Neil.

Nikki: Sorry. I didn't mean to get so emotional.

Victor: You don't have to apologize for showing your feelings.

Nikki: Oh, my goodness. Did I just hear that come out of the mouth of Victor Newman?

Victor: Well, you're making me out to be this insensitive clod.

Nikki: You know I don't feel that way.

Victor: Sometimes, I wonder -- how you do feel?

Nikki: Well, that's interesting.

Victor: Why?

Nikki: I often wonder that very same thing about you.

Steve: What do you think we're doing here?

Colleen: I --

Traci: Colleen, are you stoned yet?

Ricky: Mrs. Connelly --

Traci: You, quiet!

Colleen: How did you find me?

Traci: What difference does that make?!

Ricky: That's mine!

Steve: Where are your parents? Huh? Do they know what's going on in here?

Traci: Because they will, believe me.

Colleen: Stop threatening Ricky. You have no right!

Steve: Colleen, you don't know what the hell you're talking about! You're risking your future with this loser!

Traci: All right, come on, come on. Out, out. We're going, Steve. Let's go.

Billy: Come on, Mac. I'm sure your mom tried to make you believe she wanted another chance with you.

Mackenzie: There was stuff Iíd forgotten. Back when we all lived together --

Billy: About Ralph?

Mackenzie: No, she reminded me of how things were before my stepfather started messing with me.

Billy: Things were better then?

Mackenzie: My mom and I were pretty close. But when I hit my teens, we started arguing a lot.

Billy: Well, that's normal.

Mackenzie: Yeah. But it got really ugly. My mom and I were barely talking when I told her that Ralph was weirding me out. We were definitely in a bad place.

Billy: What about when he touched you?

Mackenzie: By then, the walls were really up. My mom felt like all I ever did was pick fights and complain. So what I told her was just another gripe. She couldn't deal with it. But, you know, remembering this doesn't justify her not believing me.

Billy: No, no it doesnít. But at least you understand where she was coming from.

Mackenzie: That's exactly what you've been saying -- I should talk to my mom because I might learn some things that could make a difference. Listen to me. I'm going back and forth like a ping-pong ball.

Billy: See? That is a sign you should give her another chance.

Mackenzie: Billy, it's so hard. I've been promising myself for years that I would never let that woman back in my life.

Billy: No, because she wasn't here. But she is now. Mac, please don't mess this up. Don't push her away.

Mackenzie: I don't know what's right. But I can't go on like this. I need to make a decision now.

Amanda: Yeah, the Abbotts, I've heard of them. What are they like?

Larry: They pay my wages. Other than that I could take 'em or leave 'em.

Amanda: You don't like them?

Larry: It's not so much that. It's that they're not nuts about me. See, the gal that hired me wasn't part of their clan.

Amanda: Still, I mean, a cleaning job? They had issues with you over that?

Larry: Well, put it this way. They were kind of freaked about my "prior employment."

Amanda: There's a young Abbott, a boy in high school?

Larry: Yeah, I think his name's Billy?

Amanda: What's he like?

Larry: I'm not sure. I don't know the kid that well. Seems cool enough, though.

Amanda: Not like the rest of the family?

Larry: Hmm? You're sure awful curious about the Abbott family. They have something to do with why you don't feel like sticking around? Whoa, Iím sorry. It's none of my business.

Amanda: No, and I don't mean to be rude.

Larry: You're not. So look, when will you know if you have to leave or not?

Amanda: Oh, a few days probably.

Larry: Hmm, doesn't sound like it's your call.

Amanda: It isn't. If it was, Iíd be staying. That's for sure.

Larry: Well, if you get your wish, maybe we can talk again. I'd like to buy you hot chocolate or something.

Amanda: I'd like that.

Larry: Well, I'll see you.

Amanda: It's nice meeting you, Mr. Warton.

Larry: Larry, please.

Amanda: Larry.

Jill: Yum. What is it about eating outdoors?

Sean: It's probably the fact that after all we've done you're so hungry you'd eat just about anything.

Jill: Oh, don't give me that. You are an excellent chef. I am perfectly content, thank you very much.

Sean: So far, so good with this roughing-it thing.

Jill: What next?

Sean: I don't know. It's getting kind of cold. We could just sit here around the fire.

Jill: Guess what I packed? Marshmallows.

Sean: Marshmallows! I haven't done that in years.

Jill: Stick with me, kid. You'll be an expert at this camping thing.

[Coyote howling]

Jill: You know, on second thought, maybe it's time we got out of the open.

Sean: Yeah, I vote for the sleeping bag.

Jill: With our clothes on?

Sean: No way.

Jill: I'll race you.

Ashley: My dad seemed really disappointed, didn't he?

Brad: Yeah, he really wanted to help Traci out with Colleen.

Ashley: Yeah, thank you.

Brad: Your sister didn't give you any details as to what's happening out there?

Ashley: Nothing.

Brad: Damn, Ash, this is so frustrating!

Ashley: I didn't think it was my place to pry.

Brad: Listen, Iím not criticizing.

Ashley: I know you're not, honey, it's okay.

Brad: I guess Traci has a right to keep things private. And I know she's doing what she thinks is best.

Ashley: You just wish that you weren't left out of the loop where Colleen is concerned, right?

Brad: Yeah, not that I have any bright ideas about how to fix things, especially after last summer.

Ashley: You're being too hard on yourself, sweetie.

Brad: I don't think I am.

Ashley: Things are tougher for you now than they were before Colleen came back into your life, aren't they?

Brad: I'd resigned myself to just being a name on a Christmas card. I'd given up any real hopes of ever being a father to her.

Ashley: And now?

Brad: Now, I've had a taste of what it could be like -- and, Ash, I can't let her go. It's driving me nuts.

Ashley: Especially now that things are a little difficult in Colleen's life.

Brad: You know how much it means to me that you understand that?

Ashley: Now you listen here. Kids her age turn on a dime. This could all turn around for her overnight. She could snap right out of it. I think, with some time, once the dust settles, she's gonna reach out to you again. You two are gonna have that bond.

Brad: From your lips to God's ears. Or better yet --

Ashley: What, from your lips, to my lips?

Brad: Mmm-hmm. Thank you.

Ashley: For that lovely kiss?

Brad: I think you know better than that.

Ashley: Things are gonna be okay. I've got a good feeling about it. Trust me.

Traci: I cannot believe that you have done this! You are supposed to be grounded!

Steve: From now on, that punk is totally off-limits!

Traci: You are forbidden to see him. Ever!

Colleen: You think you can stop me? I see him every day. Unless you want to come to school with me.

Traci: Well, now that's a pretty good idea.

Colleen: Stop blaming Ricky! This isn't about him!

Traci: Oh, you are so right. This is about you and lying and smoking pot.

Colleen: So what are you gonna do? I'll tell you what -- nothing. Because there's nothing you can do. You've already taken away everything that matters to me.

Steve: Well, see, that's where you're wrong.

Colleen: What are you talking about?

Traci: You know that trip that your grandfather was planning? I talked to him about it, Colleen. He brought up some really good points.

Colleen: So?

Steve: Your mother was on the verge of reconsidering. When she came in to tell you, she found out you were gone. So now, thanks to your defiant behavior, that trip is no longer an option.

Colleen: Yeah, right. Like Iím gonna believe you. You weren't gonna change your mind! You're just trying to make me feel bad.

Traci: All right, listen to me --

Colleen: No, I am not going to! Just like I'm not going to fall for any more of your games.

Steve: Colleen --

Colleen: Go ahead, do your worst! Who cares?!

Amanda: Hi --

Mackenzie: Ned told us you were here.

Amanda: You came to see me?

Mackenzie: I've made a decision.

Amanda: Oh --

Mackenzie: Winter break is coming up soon, and I'm gonna have some free time. So I want you to stay, at least through the holidays. But after New Yearís, we'll see where things stand.

Amanda: All right, I'm sorry. You've just made me really happy.

Billy: Come on, Mac. Let's go.

Billy: Hey.

Mackenzie: Hmm?

Billy: You did the right thing.

Mackenzie: Yeah, I hope so. I hope so.

Victor: Cheers.

Nikki: We're quite the pair, aren't we?

Victor: You once said we're soul mates.

Nikki: I believe that. You will always be a part of me.

[Door opens and closes]

Nikki: Honey -- honey, what happened?

Victoria: Nothing. I'm fine.

Victor: Sweetheart, you're obviously not fine.

Victoria: Look, you both made it very clear that you didn't think I should go to the office, and you were right. Fine, okay, let's just drop it!

Victor: Sweetheart, there's no pressure, okay? Don't get yourself all worked up now.

Victoria: I want to be ready. I want to be ready to work. I'm trying so hard to be okay. I'm trying so hard to be normal. Ryan is gone. But I'm still here. I'm still alive. And I want to work. I should be able to work. But when I went into the office, everything I saw, everything I touched reminded me of Ryan. Every word out of Neilís mouth brought him back to me. I just kept expecting him to walk through the door. But he didnít. And I kept remembering everything he said to me and everything that we shared, and I couldn't make him go away.

Nikki: Baby, it's just too soon. You need more time.

Victoria: How much longer, Mother? How much longer can I possibly live like this?

Victor: Sweetheart, please, you're getting yourself all worked up. Now come on.

Victoria: I'm angry! I am angry! I am angry at myself! I am angry at Ryan! I am angry that this happened! He's gone. He's gone, but he won't leave me alone! And I just want him to leave me alone, but my heart won't leave him behind. My heart won't let him go. I just loved him so much, and he's gone. He's gone. [Sobbing]
