Nick: Sweetheart, what is it? What did you want to tell me?
Sharon: It's just -- it's so hard for me to get into this.
Nick: We've got time. You know, we're in no hurry.
Sharon: Listening to you just now -- you were being so loving. Saying how much I mean to you.
Nick: I meant every word of that. You believe me, right?
Sharon: It means so much, so much.
Nick: Well, Iím glad. Just like I said before, you are the only woman for me. You're the only woman I'll ever want.
Chris: Alex, hi.
Alex: Hi. Morning, Christine.
Chris: I had a feeling we'd be crossing paths.
Alex: Yeah. Well, gosh, you look wonderful. It's great to see you.
Chris: Sitting in your chair, behind your desk?
Alex: No, no. It's your chair and your desk. I was just a squatter. But now that you're back, you know what? I can make other arrangements.
Chris: No, no. Don't you dare. I'm here handling one case, which I'm hoping to make disappear.
Chris: As long as Iím not in your way, we can share for the time being.
Alex: Fine by me.
Chris: Can I get you some coffee?
Alex: Sure, thanks.
Alex: I haven't been here myself much lately.
Chris: Well, that's understandable. You've been through a terrible loss.
Alex: Yeah, um, you know what? Thank you.
Alex: Uh, Iím a little behind on my thank you cards, and the flowers you sent to Malcolmís service were beautiful.
Chris: Good. He was such a special guy. He'll be missed terribly. How are you doing?
Alex: Surfacing. Finally.
Chris: I'm sure it hasn't been easy.
Alex: I just need to start focusing on other things. Work. I've been spending a lot of time alone in the apartment. Probably too much. It was Malcolmís place, and being there now, it's a constant reminder that he's gone. I keep thinking that the door will open, and there he'll be walking in smiling, telling me about his day and how much he loves me. But it's never gonna happen again. Not ever again. And that's the part that I just can't get over.
Olivia: Okay, fine. You're right. Guilty as charged. So sue me. I didn't hear from you, I was worried.
Neil: I take it Victoria told you I was on a collision course with Alex, and I didn't even know about it.
Olivia: By the way you're talking, did you straighten things out?
Neil: Can I tell you something? That lady, she actually blamed me again for my brother's death.
Olivia: Oh, Neil, you know when tragedies like this happen, people are looking for some answers. It's human nature to point the finger.
Neil: Human, yes. But it certainly doesn't help to solve anything.
Olivia: So, from what you're saying, did you and she talk?
Neil: Yeah, we did. Yeah, things got pretty intense. She was furious. She wouldn't let me get a word in. But, you know, by the time I left, I think she understood that Iím not the villain here.
Olivia: How did you get through to her?
Neil: I told her the truth. I told her exactly what Malcolm said to me hours before he died.
Michael: What? Yeah. Can you hear me now? How 'bout now? You know, forget it. Call me at the office. Yeah, bye.
Silva: Has there been a change? Are you representing Ms. Jenkins?
Michael: Oh, I'm just an interested party. Sydney Gorman is still Dianeís attorney of record. Oh, hey, hey, we need to talk.
Phyllis: No, no, no, no. We can't talk.
Michael: Don't worry. They won't see us. Jack's already inside with his attorney. So how are you holding up?
Phyllis: You know, I get asked that about 50 times a day. No one really seems to give a damn about the answer.
Michael: All right, all right, all right. This will all be over soon.
Phyllis: Yeah, right.
Michael: All right, listen to me. We don't have much time. I spoke to Diane about our plan for her to provoke you while you're on the stand so you lose it, and we foul up Jack's case.
Phyllis: Listen, he can't know this was a set-up. No one can know that.
Michael: Don't worry. Don't worry. She doesn't, either. I didn't let on that you and I spoke.
Phyllis: What did she say?
Michael: She turned me down flat.
Phyllis: Oh, my God!
Michael: Before you panic, I have come up with a way for it to work without her.
Silva: It shouldn't take long to go over your testimony.
Jack: You didn't say. How did things go with Phyllis this morning?
Silva: She did well. She's not totally happy with things, but I think she'll do fine during questioning.
Jack: And during cross-examination?
Silva: That's hard to say. She wouldn't let me prep her.
Jack: She what? John --
Silva: I don't want you to worry about this. She had a good point. She's been through all this before. She remembers all too well every question they asked her. She knows she's gonna get hammered up here today. She just didn't want to go through it twice in one day.
Jack: To tell you the truth, she can barely talk about Daniel with me without falling to pieces. Oh, God, I just detest putting her though this. I hate it. If there was any way around it, particularly knowing we may not win and she could go through all -- any word on Victor?
Silva: No, I'm afraid not.
Jack: That bastard's gonna string me along till the last minute. Oh, God, I wish there was some way we could get a clue as to which way he was leaning.
Diane: He won't mind, Connie, believe me.
Victor: What do you mean, I won't mind?
Diane: Five minutes, Victor, please. I wouldn't be here if it weren't terribly important.
Victor: Don't you ever walk in here again without having her announce you. Do you understand that?
Victor: Two minutes. That'll be all.
Diane: Okay. As you know, Jack and I are in the midst of a custody hearing, and it's been going on for some time, but now we're down to brass tacks.
Victor: What does that have to do with me?
Diane: Word has it that you're planning to testify.
Victor: And if I were?
Diane: Did Jack ask you to?
Victor: As a matter of fact he did, yes.
Diane: Well, he's hardly your favorite person.
Victor: Neither are you.
Diane: Fine. I'll get to the point. Are you going to help Jack? Help him take my son away from me?
[Knock on door]
Jill: Oh, my. What?
Larry: I didn't mean to interrupt.
Jill: Well, you already did. What is it?
Larry: I wanted to talk to you about the lessons that you've been giving me.
Jill: We don't have another one scheduled.
Larry: Yeah, I know, I just wanted to tell you that --
Jill: Mr. Warton, you don't have to keep me constantly updated on your romantic adventures, you know?
Larry: Well, I wasn't going to. The reason I stopped by is to say thank you and that if you ever get the urge to sit down with me and teach me some more things, it just -- say the word. I'll be there. I know it's kind of wild -- me actually liking to go back to school.
Jill: So what you're telling me is that things are on an upswing between you and what's her name?
Alex: I'm sorry.
Chris: No, don't be. Don't be. I understand. I imagine there are a lot of things you've had to take care of.
Alex: It's been hard. I sorted through Malcolmís personal belongings, and I put everything away. Uh, of course, now, I have to deal with the fact that the place seems so incredibly empty. You know what? Something just occurred to me. How long are you planning to be in town?
Chris: I'm not sure. I haven't committed to anything yet.
Alex: Where are you staying?
Chris: At a hotel. Even though Paulís not staying at our apartment, I just -- I'm not sure I want to be there now.
Alex: I hear you. But look, there is no reason for you to have to stay at a hotel. We're sharing an office, so I have an extra bedroom with its own bath. Why don't you just come and crash with me?
Chris: Alex, I --
Alex: You know, it really would be nice to have someone else there. And it might be good for you, too, Christine.
Chris: You're right. It makes some sense. Okay.
Alex: Terrific. Terrific. You know what? I think I might have a spare key in here. Wait, I hear something. Here it is. I have a spare key. So feel free to move in as soon as you like.
Chris: I'll grab some things and be over this afternoon.
Alex: Great, great. It really will be a godsend having some company.
Chris: Still, it must be comforting having such a strong support system, being around all those people who care so much about Malcolm.
Alex: Right. It really is truly amazing. Everyone just rallied behind me, and Michael has been so wonderful, and he's been extremely compassionate. And then there's Olivia. There was so much tension going on between us, but all that has gone by the wayside. And she even opened up her home to me. She let me spend time with Nate. I don't know what I would have done without the two of them. And then there's Gina, the Abbotts. And everybody's really been so kind, and they just reached out, and Iím grateful.
Chris: What about Neil? Aren't you forgetting him?
Nick: You're not doubting that youíre the only woman Iíll ever want, are you? Listen, baby. It's true. I mean it totally. I know what we went through with Grace, that you wouldn't have believed me. But, baby, I was just immature and stupid and confused then, because I didn't realize what I know now -- that Iím incredibly lucky to have you as my wife. And no one could even come close to filling my heart the way you do. No one. I love you so much.
Sharon: I love you, too, Nick.
Phyllis: What are you doing? Why are you clamming up on me? What's your alternative plan? Talk to me!
Michael: Shh! It might be more effective if you don't know.
Phyllis: Oh, gee. I love the sound of that.
Michael: Behind you. Behind you.
Phyllis: Hi, Ashley.
Ashley: How're you doing?
Phyllis: Um, about as well as can be expected.
Ashley: Do you want to talk? Do you want to go outside?
Phyllis: No, listen, Jack is in there. And I just -- I need to pull myself together before I get in there.
Ashley: I understand. Okay. I'll see you in a bit.
Silva: Jack, you're gonna sail right through this. Just keep your cool.
Ashley: That's my brother's forte.
John: Hi, Ashley.
Jack: Ash, you're here.
Ashley: Yeah, even after the way you snapped at me earlier.
Jack: I'm sorry about that. This whole day is --
Ashley: Yeah, don't worry about it. I've had a few of those myself recently.
Jack: Shouldn't you be resting?
Ashley: No --
Jack: We don't need you here till later. We probably won't even call you till this afternoon. That is if you're still willing to testify.
Ashley: Are you kidding? I can't wait to tell her honor what terrific parents you and Phyllis will be.
Jack: Thanks. That means the world to me.
Ashley: And that's why I'm here early. I know you've had a lot of uncertainty and tension in your life lately. I didn't want you wondering if you could count on me. If you're determined to go through with this then I would like to be here by your side. Unless, of course, you prefer I not be.
Jack: Sis, I can't think of a time when Iíve needed you more.
Diane: I'm sure Jack went all out trying to persuade you to crucify me in court.
Victor: I make up my own mind, all right?
Diane: Yes, Victor, of course you do. I just simply meant that Jack's been --
Victor: What you meant is to find out if Iím gonna testify for Jack Abbott.
Diane: Will you?
Victor: I haven't decided, yet. That's my answer. Now you can leave. Unless, of course, you want to irritate me to the point where I might be swayed to testify on the other side.
Diane: Victor, I am begging you. Please. Please don't do this. Don't take my son away from me. Dammit, Victor. I am a good mother. You can ask anyone! Kyle, he's a happy, well-adjusted little boy, in spite of the fact that --
Victor: The fact that you raised him without a father.
Diane: If I retain custody, Jack will still be his father.
Victor: And where will you be? In Europe somewhere?
Diane: Just tell me what you're going to do. Are you going to get on that witness stand? I can see the answer is yes. You've already decided to stick it to me.
Victor: I'm warning you, Diane.
Diane: Oh, you just love playing God. Handing out retribution. Yes, I took what didn't belong to me! And, yes, I got myself pregnant for all the wrong reasons! And it was reprehensible! But what you're conveniently forgetting, Victor, is that you created this monster! You can't just treat a person the way you treated me and then just expect her to turn the other cheek!
Victor: If you honestly think this is gonna sway me, you're sadly mistaken, all right?
Nick: This feels so incredible. I mean, it really feels good. I hope you feel the same way. I'm not getting ahead of myself.
Sharon: It feels good to me, too.
Nick: If we could only go back.
Sharon: Nick, we canít.
Nick: No, I mean, if. I would make sure that I treasure every moment. From the time we met, remember when we were kids? Because the love that we have, the love and the trust, I mean, nothing in the world should ever jeopardize that. Baby, what's wrong? Is this what you wanted to talk to me about before?
Sharon: It's something that happened. Something I just feel so terrible about.
Nick: It's okay. I think I can guess what it is.
Sharon: You can?
Nick: Yeah. It's about trust, isn't it?
Sharon: Yeah. Yeah. Yes. It's about trust. That's exactly what it is about.
Phyllis: Michael, you're making me nervous.
Michael: That's the idea.
Phyllis: Are you talking about surprising me?
Michael: We agreed. Whatever is necessary to get what you want. You still feel that way, don't you?
Phyllis: For God's sake, do you even know how torn up I am?
Michael: I know you're worried that Jack might see through this.
Phyllis: If he finds out that I deliberately sabotaged his --
Michael: Phyllis, he wonít. He won't.
Phyllis: How do you know that? He'd resent me forever, and I wouldn't blame him.
Michael: Do you think your husband is sitting in that courtroom, worried about your feelings? The man is obsessed! So, okay, you lose it a little on the stand, and consequently, a child is not ripped from his natural mother. So what? There is a hell of an argument that says that shouldn't happen, no matter what Jack wants.
Phyllis: He wants his child. It's his flesh and blood.
Michael: Oh, that's not you talking. That's him talking. Believe me, he will recover.
Phyllis: Yeah, really? How?
Michael: Well, I happen to recall something being said about surrogate motherhood. In a year -- in two years, if you can make that happen, you know, while Jack is rocking that other child in his arms, and he's goo-gooing his head off, he's gonna have put all this mess with Diane behind him, something he should be doing now, on his own.
Phyllis: It's so easy for you to be glib, isn't it? You don't have to live with the man, look him in the eye every single day and know that you've betrayed him.
Michael: Oh, Phyllis, Phyllis. Please! Don't feel bad about what you're doing. It's the right thing. It's right for you. It's right for your marriage, and ultimately, it's right for Jack. Count on it.
Olivia: What Malcolm said?
Neil: There's something I remembered afterwards. I told Vicki. She knows about it, but that's it. I was hoping that I would never have to tell Alex.
Olivia: Well, come on. Don't keep me in suspense. What was it?
Neil: Okay, it was in the hotel room in Kenya. Malcolm had just punched me, I was on the ground. He was about to punch me again when he stopped and he said, "why should I take it out on you?" And then he left and that's the last time that I saw him.
Olivia: Oh, my God. You mean that --?
Neil: Yeah, he was referring to Alex. He had to be. He heard both of us talking that night. He was just as angry and disillusioned with her.
Olivia: And you told Alex?
Neil: I told her if she was gonna point a finger at me, she had damn well better point a finger at herself, too. Ah, which wasn't an easy thing for me to say.
Olivia: Evidently it was something she needed to hear.
Neil: I also told her that we have a choice. That we can either start the healing process and move on, or we can just destroy each other.
Olivia: And did that get through to her?
Neil: It got her to stop putting all the blame on me.
Olivia: Well, that's positive. Isn't it?
Neil: That was one hell of a bomb I dropped on her.
Olivia: You're worried that instead of putting all the blame on you --
Neil: Yeah, thatís it -- it's on her now. She's taking it on.
Olivia: Neil, you know what? I have all the compassion in the world for Alex, really I do. But if she wants to hold on to all these bad feelings, what can you do about that?
Neil: Oh, Liv, I don't know. I'm not sure I should even try. I mean, how can you take that kind of load off of someone?
Olivia: Well, I hope not by putting it back on you.
Neil: Can I tell you something? It sounds kind of stupid here, but it's like a hot potato. No one wants it, but someone has to carry it.
Olivia: Why? What happened to Malcolm was an accident. It was an accident. Read the paper. There are accidents every day.
Neil: But what you don't read about in the paper is the people just like you and me. You know, endless, sleepless nights where we stare up at the ceiling wondering, "where did we go wrong?" I mean, what could we have done to stop it? The accusations, the recriminations -- it's awful.
Olivia: Wait, wait, Neil. No one is accusing any -- or are they?
Neil: [Sighs] I don't know. Alex and I -- we haven't talked since our last conversation.
Olivia: What, you haven't spoken to her?
Neil: No. No, we haven't. I haven't spoken to her. I've been afraid to. I keep wondering what's going through her mind.
Olivia: Okay, okay, Neil. Don't go looking for trouble. There are any number of reasons why she hasn't called you, yet.
Neil: So you think that, perhaps, she's working through things?
Olivia: Well, that could be. You know, she could be at the office diving into work the same you are. Maybe it's as simple as the woman hasn't had an opportunity to pick up a phone and call you, yet.
Neil: Maybe. Woulda, coulda, shoulda. Yeah, maybe. Maybe she's back at work again trying to move on with her life, trying to be normal. You think I should call her, maybe touch base?
Olivia: If you're asking my advice, I say you should do whatever will ease your mind.
Phyllis: Very convincing speech.
Michael: Mm, you still have your doubts.
Phyllis: This is so ironic. I used to revel in this. Conniving and scheming.
Michael: Now you're a woman in love, and all the fun's gone out of it.
Phyllis: If only I can keep my hands clean and have this all go away. Maybe it'll blow up in Jack's face. I don't know. It could, right? Apparently, Jack feels that way. Otherwise, he wouldn't be so keyed up over this.
Michael: What, Jack's keyed up? Why do you say that?
Phyllis: Well, he'd have to be half frantic to go to Victor and reach out to him.
Michael: Whoa, Jack reached out to Victor Newman?
Phyllis: Yes. I overheard Jack and John talking. He's asked Victor to be a witness.
Michael: That's not good.
Phyllis: Please don't tell me that this helps Jack's case.
Michael: Well, Phyllis, if you had any doubts in your mind about sticking to our plan -- you really shouldn't anymore. Not if Victor Newman is willing to go into that hearing room and testify against Diane.
Diane: You married me, Victor. Let me fall in love with you. And then when it came time to dump me --
Victor: Diane, you're digging your own grave right now.
Diane: Why? Why, because Iím angry? Chalk it up to putting my heart on the line and having you stomp on it again and again. It wasn't enough, leaving me for Nikki, promising me the divorce was only temporary. But then again, why should I have trusted you? You had a vasectomy, hid that from me. Nikki's doing again.
Victor: Don't you understand this is getting you nowhere?
Diane: Then when the two of you couldn't make things work, who did you move back in with? Gullible me. You had me so full of hope, thinking that we could have a future together, thinking how perfect it would be if I could have your child.
Victor: That was part of our settlement. I wanted to buy back the place, and you wouldn't allow it unless I agreed to let you stay there until you found a new place. You pretended to look for another place. It was a hoax. It was your sad attempt to try to manipulate me. It wasn't successful. No one ever is doing that. So whatever hopes and dreams you had, you know they were of your own making. I warned you then, it'd be best if you get out of town. You didn't heed my warning. Now I'm proven right. So if I were you, I'd get the hell out of here now before the tide really turns against you.
Jill: Excellent. Then we have a deal? Great. No, no, no. Thank you, Morrie. And we'll have our legal get in touch with you. Okay, bye. Excuse me. What do you think you're doing?
Larry: Man, oh, man. These pictures are a hoot and a half. I mean, who's this pretty boy?
Jill: That happens to be one of the top models in the business.
Larry: This dude? You gotta be kidding me. What, do you use him in ads or something?
Jill: Well, I just might. I am head of the men's line. I have to line up some new models for our fall campaign.
Jill: What is so funny?
Larry: I can't believe that you pay good money for someone that looks like that.
Jill: Well, we have been for years. It's an image that works very well for us.
Larry: So you're saying that you think that helps you sell your stuff?
Jill: I don't think, I know. Excuse me.
Larry: That's pretty unreal. I mean, I can't imagine a guy -- a real guy, stepping up to the plate to buy Jabot after he looked at a picture of that wimp -- unless it's, you know, some women buying stuff for their husbands.
Jill: So what are you, a marketing maven now? What, you're doubting my word on this?
Larry: Look, Ms. Abbott, I know a lot of dudes that would be glad to lay out some bucks for the right smell. But not if they thought that it would turn 'em into something like that. I mean, no way. They'd rather stink.
Jill: Thank you so much for your expert opinion.
Larry: No problem.
Jill: Hold on, Mr. Warton. Come back in here. I'm not through with you yet.
Chris: It's such a horrendous loss, for both you and Neil -- not to mention, the ordeal you went through in Kenya. I would imagine that you two would be turning to each other in your time of grief.
Alex: I can see why you'd think that.
Chris: Alex, is there some reason you don't feel you two can share what you're going through?
Alex: Where Malcolmís death is concerned, Neil and I -- well, we share a lot.
Chris: And that's good, isn't it?
Alex: It's just been so overwhelming. Even now, months later, I just --
Chris: If I've hit a sore spot, I'm sorry.
Alex: No, no, don't. No, please don't apologize. Everybody's been so sensitive -- I've just tried hard to -- life does go on. I know it does. It has to.
Alex: Excuse me. Let me -- Alex Perez.
Neil: Alex. It's Neil. I was hoping you'd be there.
Alex: I have some cases going to court next week. I figured I would get organized. What's up?
Neil: I was just wondering if you mind if I stop by? I wanted to see how you're doing.
Alex: Suit yourself.
Neil: Great. I'll be there shortly, okay? Thanks. Bye-bye.
Olivia: So? She is at work.
Neil: Yeah, just as you said. It's a good sign.
Olivia: You know what, Neil? I know this has all been very trying for you. But try and stay positive as much as possible, okay?
Neil: Thanks. Hey, and thanks for the pep talk. Bye.
Nick: I assume you're referring to last winter.
Sharon: Last winter?
Nick: Yeah, when we were saying all those hurtful things to each other. That's when our trust was broken. We were both responsible for that. I feel terrible about that, too.
Sharon: It's just much more than that. I don't know how I could have -- I mean, if I had only known --
Nick: Baby, let's not go there, okay? Listen to me. Listen to me. I should have done this sooner. I was telling you how I felt about you. And you were reacting the way you did. Don't know why I waited so long to tell you that. I should have told you days ago, weeks ago.
Sharon: I wish you had. Gosh, I wish you had.
Nick: Okay, so we both made some mistakes. Let's not dwell on that. Let's not let that pull us away from where we are right now.
Sharon: I hear you, Nick. I'm just not sure that's possible.
Nick: Oh, baby, it is. It is possible. The biggest mistake we could make right now is to get caught up in the past. We're right here and we're together. What's the most important this is for us to stay right here, in this moment. Let's not let it slip by us.
Ashley: So, when do these get underway?
Silva: We still have a little time. Although, it is getting close.
Jack: Wonder when Phyllis is gonna get here?
Ashley: She's here. I saw her out there earlier.
Jack: She's in the hall?
Ashley: She wanted to pull herself together before she came in here.
Jack: Without me? That's just swell. That's what we've come to. You know, we're gonna get through this, my wife and I, and then we'll deal with whatever.
Ashley: And you will. Just have faith, Jackie, okay?
Phyllis: Yeah, that's all any of us can do.
Jack: Hey, you made it.
Phyllis: Yeah, did you think I'd bolt? Don't answer that.
Ashley: This is the worst part, right now -- the anticipating.
Phyllis: Yeah, I think I'll have to sit down. I might get a little wobbly.
Silva: Phyllis, you'll want to sit up here at the front table with Jack and me.
Jack: We're in this together. We may need to hold each other's hand.
Michael: I just heard something alarming.
Sydney: About Victor Newman?
Michael: Tell me they haven't issued a revised witness list.
Sydney: Fine. I won't tell you. I'll show you the fax. I take it you agree this is not good news.
Diane: Thank God you're both here.
Sydney: What is it? You look shaken up.
Diane: I may have just shot our entire case to hell.
Michael: Why? Where have you been?
Diane: The minute I heard that Victor might be jumping into this --
Michael: No, no, no, no. You didn't!
Diane: Yes, I had to go see him! I had to at least try to find out if he's serious about helping Jack.
Sydney: Is he?
Diane: I don't know. I blew up at him. I'm sorry, but the man just pushes all my buttons.
Michael: You know, if you had bothered to contact your lawyers instead of going off half-deranged to see him.
Diane: It was a risk. I know that.
Michael: Not to mention, colossally ill-advised.
Diane: What are you doing, Michael? Trying to make me feel worse than I already do?!
Michael: Did Newman say anything definitive?
Sydney: Then there's still hope -- maybe.
