Nick: Well, I guess I didn't need to come down here after all. Well, you've got Diego to help you with the presents.
Sharon: Oh, yeah.
Nick: Look, I heard what's going on, and I'm not very happy about it. My mom said you gave her your notice. Which must mean you'll be leaving the coffee house, too. Is there anything we can do to talk you out of it?
Diego: Thanks. But, you know, I really gotta go.
Nick: Well, sorry to hear that, man. You will be missed. I'm gonna go get the presents.
Diego: Sharon, do you really wanna tell Nick about us? Will you just let it go, put it behind you?
Sharon: Damn it, Diego, I can't just go on pretending like everything's fine when it isn't. I have to be honest with him. I just hope that he can find it in his heart to forgive me. Because until that happens, I can't live with myself.
Diane: Be it ever so humble.
Graziella: I'm sorry, signora. What did you say?
Diane: Oh, never mind. I'm just glad to get out of the hotel. Although, this isn't exactly what I had in mind. So, still not a peep out of my son?
Graziella: Oh, he was sleeping soundly upstairs when I checked a few minutes ago.
Diane: He's such an angel. I worry about the pool, though. I'm going to get one of those self-closing child-protective locks on the door, and a pool alarm. And now that we're settled in, I'd like to get him a proper crib. So much for knocking.
Jack: I need to talk to you. Alone.
Diane: What is it, Jack? You seem upset.
Jack: I just got home. I just found out you're here. What the hell is going on?
Diane: I'm moving in.
Jack: You were going to wait until I cleared this with my father.
Diane: Oh, yes. But after we talked, I just assumed that it would be --
Jack: You assumed. We agreed you'd wait until I gave you the go-ahead. Now what? You're just doing your own thing? If this is how it's gonna be, Diane, I'm telling you, start packing your things right now.
Brad: The little angel's still sound asleep.
Ashley: Is she? I could've sworn I heard her stirring.
Brad: That's just wishful thinking.
Ashley: Every second I have to spend with her is so precious. Especially now.
Brad: I could wake her.
Ashley: That's okay. I'll peek in on her a little bit.
Brad: How're you doing?
Ashley: As compared to what?
Brad: Anything I can get you, I can do?
Ashley: Actually, I need to talk to my family about what's going on. Could you call my dad and ask him to come over?
Brad: You wanna talk to John before you talk to everyone else? We'll do that together, okay?
Ashley: No. No, I wanna do this alone.
Brad: You sure?
Ashley: Yeah. I know it's gonna be hard, but I need to do this by myself.
Neil: Hey. About time I --
Serena: Hey, watch it.
Neil: Shut up and give me another one, would you?
Serena: You know what? You're gonna pay for this, 'cause I'm not.
Neil: That's fine. Here, look, I got money here. Some money, here you go. Come on. Chop chop! I'm getting thirsty over here.
Serena: Yeah, sure you are.
Neil: Yeah. Hey, hey? Come here.
Neil: Come here. How much?
Nail: How much do you cost?
Nick: I've got the presents. You guys wanna head back up to the pool?
Sharon: Hon, would you mind if we don't go up just yet? I wanna talk to you about something.
Nick: Sure. What is it?
Sharon: Would you mind? I wanna speak to my husband in private.
Diego: Yeah, sure.
Nick: Babe, are you okay?
Sharon: No, not really.
Nick: Are you feeling all right? You look a little pale.
Sharon: You know how much I love you. You and the kids, our little family -- you just mean everything to me. You're my whole world. If only --
Nick: Look -- I think I know what this is about.
Sharon: You do?
Nick: Yeah. Look, it's great being home and seeing the kids and the family, but it takes some getting used to.
Sharon: It's not that. Um --
Nick: Okay, then why don't you tell me what it is? 'Cause I really wanna know what's going on with you.
Victor: Well, call me back once it has been settled, all right? All right, I appreciate it.
Victoria: Hey. Are Nick and Sharon back yet?
Victor: Not only are they back, but they're together again.
Victoria: Thank God, some good news. I need all I can get right now.
Victor: What happened?
Victoria: I just had a very disturbing encounter with Neil at his apartment.
Victor: Did he tell you about the ultimatum?
Victoria: I can't believe he quit rather than going to rehab.
Victor: You mean he hasn't changed his mind?
Victoria: Oh, no, no. He's drinking again.
Victor: I know, I saw.
Victoria: It's worse than it was before. I mean, he's lashing out at everyone around him. He scared his nephew Nate. Olivia brought him down while I was there, and Neil tried to conceal that he was drinking, but --
Victor: But the boy picked up on it.
Victoria: Oh, yeah. I mean, I'm just so frustrated, I don't know what to do. I would think that some of the things that you said to him would jolt him out of this or something. But now --
Victor: My darling, I share your concern. Neil is living in denial. Who the hell knows how far he will sink?
Serena: Look, mister, what you're looking for, you can find up the street, standing on the corner. I just serve drinks here, all right?
Neil: Oh, wait. No, wait. That's not what I meant.
Serena: Oh, yeah? Then what were you thinking of buying?
Neil: Your time.
Serena: For what?
Neil: Talk. How much time am I gonna get for that? Huh?
Serena: How boring your story is.
Diego: Oh, Mrs. Collins.
Doris: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to startle you. I was just wondering if you've seen Nick and Sharon.
Diego: They're at their place talking. Excuse me.
Victoria: Hey, everyone. I hear there's a party goin' on up here.
Nikki: Hi, honey.
Victoria: Where are Nick and Sharon? Don't tell me they've run off to be alone somewhere.
Diego: Damn, she's gonna tell him.
Victor: Leaving already, Diego?
Diego: Mr. Newman. Well, actually, I was just gonna go check on my new bay mare. See how she's doing.
Victor: Is there a problem with that?
Diego: No. Not really, no.
Victor: So then why are you so -- you seem a little upset.
Nikki: Where you going, honey?
Cassie: Oh, I'm gonna see where Mom and Dad are. I think they may be down at the house.
Nikki: They should be up pretty soon, but if you wanna hurry them along, go ahead.
Victoria: Mmm, good. What's Diego doing here?
Nikki: What do you mean?
Victoria: Well, this is a family celebration. He's hardly family.
Nikki: Well, I know, but he helped plan the party. And Cassie's really gonna miss him when he's gone.
Nikki: Oh, that's right, you don't know. Diego's given his notice. He's gonna be leaving town.
Victoria: Huh. Wonder what that's all about.
Sharon: I really don't know where to start.
Nick: Well, why don't you start at the beginning? That's always a good place.
Sharon: The beginning.
Cassie: What's keeping you two? Everybody's waiting.
Sharon: Honey, Mommy and Daddy are having a conversation. We really need to finish it.
Cassie: Can't it wait? The family really needs to be together.
Nick: You know you can't resist that smile.
Sharon: You're right, I can't.
Nick: All right, let's do this.
Sharon: Let's go.
Nick: Don't try to look in these bags right now.
Nick: Let's go.
Colleen: Phyllis, you're home awfully late.
Phyllis: Yeah, I didn't realize I missed curfew. So what's been going on?
Colleen: Besides Diane moving into the pool house?
Phyllis: Really? When'd that happen?
Colleen: This afternoon.
Phyllis: Great. I'm sure she brought her kid with her.
Colleen: Yeah, Kyle's a really sweet little boy. My cousin and I are gonna have so much fun together.
Phyllis: Oh, yeah, it'll be a gas.
Colleen: Which reminds me -- I have a toy up in my room I think he'll like. I'm gonna go get it and bring it out to him.
Diane: You're throwing me out already?
Jack: This is not gonna work.
Diane: I thought you understood why I wanted to get out of that hotel as soon as possible.
Jack: That is not why I'm upset, and you damn well know it.
Diane: No, what I do know is that our son needs a place that he can feel at home. Okay, so I jumped the gun by a few hours, excuse me for assuming that you'd make the talk with your father a priority.
Jack: Don't you dare question that it's a priority with me. I think I've made that very clear. This is a delicate situation, Diane! I thought you understood that, but here it is, day one, you've already broken our agreement.
Diane: Don't you think you're overreacting?
Jack: No, I don't think I'm overreacting. You know what I think? I think the whole idea your moving here is ill-advised.
Diane: All right. All right, I admit -- maybe in the back of my mind, I had another reason for moving in so quickly.
Jack: And what would that be?
Diane: Your family. I know what they think of me, especially your father. And I thought if you talked to him about this --
Jack: What, look unkindly on the idea of your living here?
Diane: Yes. Or worse, have your family take a vote. And we both know how that would turn out. So, I figured that if I was already here, it'd be harder for him to say no.
Jack: Do me a favor. Don't make any more assumptions about my family. If something is good for one of us, everyone else gives it serious consideration.
Diane: It wasn't an assumption, Jack. It's how your father reacted.
Jack: What does that -- you talked to my father?
Diane: Well, I didn't seek him out. But I was moving some things in, and -- the point is, he knows.
Jack: Damn it. This is exactly what I didn't wanna have happen! How badly did he react?
Diane: Well, let's just say he was irritated. Especially since you hadn't spoken to him the way you promised me that you would. And you know what? I explained that to John. But still --
Jack: But still what?
Diane: Well, things got tense. So I had to offer to move out, which I fully intended to do. And then your dad said I could stay until he talks to you.
Jack: Damn it, Diane. When did this happen?
Diane: A few hours ago.
Jack: It's amazing he isn't already here on the warpath. As a matter of fact, where the hell is he?
Brad: Thanks for coming right over, John.
John: Certainly. I assume that this is about Jack?
Brad: Actually, we haven't seen Jack today. And no, this isn't about him.
Ashley: Hey, Dad.
John: Ashley, honey.
Ashley: I heard you talking about Jack. What's going on?
John: Well, we'll talk about that another time. I wanna know what's going on with you.
Brad: Well, I will leave you two alone. Call me, honey, if you need anything.
Ashley: Okay, thanks.
John: Hey, what is it?
Serena: Come on, pal. Meter's running. Start talking.
Neil: It's just that so much has happened that's been bad recently. That's all. And then tonight, the look in Nate's eyes --
Serena: Who's Nate?
Neil: Nate is my nephew. He's 11 years old, and I let him down. I let him down in a big way.
Neil: He saw me. He saw me like this.
Serena: That's it? Is that all?
Neil: What do you mean, "that's it? That's all?" His mom brought him over to my place unexpectedly. The kid had a school paper he wanted to show me. He got an "A" on it. He wanted to show me, and -- I was happy for him, but then he knew -- the little kid knew that something was wrong. And that look in his eyes -- I know I -- that poor kid.
Serena: Kids. God, the way they depend on you.
Neil: Yeah. And you want more than anything in the world to give them everything that they want and they need and --
Serena: Yeah. Especially when they're hurting.
Neil: Yeah. And if you let 'em down, you feel like garbage. Well, I guess I used up my 20, didn't I?
Serena: Want a cab home?
Neil: Oh, man, no, no, no. I'm not going home. I'm gonna stay right here.
Serena: This isn't a motel. I'm off duty now.
Serena: You can come to my place, a block away. There's a sofa, nothing fancy. But it beats staying here.
Neil: Hmm. Is that an offer?
Serena: It's up to you. It's no skin off my nose, either way.
Jack: Look, I will handle my father. But you stick to our agreement, or we have no agreement.
Diane: Jack, relax. You don't have to lecture me like I'm a child.
Colleen: Oh, I'm sorry.
Jack: No, that's all right, kiddo. Come on in.
Colleen: I said I'd bring this toy over for Kyle. I thought he might like it.
Diane: Oh, Colleen, how sweet of you. I'd let you take it up to him, but he's asleep.
Colleen: Oh, that's okay. I'll leave it with you. I'll you see him in the morning.
Diane: Thank you.
Colleen: Oh, Jack, Phyllis is here. She's in the living room.
Diane: Jack, I know that you're under a lot of pressure. And I also know that your wife won't exactly be thrilled having me around. But I will do whatever I can to minimize the tension.
Jack: I have your word on that?
Diane: You have my word.
Graziella: These quarters, signora, are a little small, but I'm sure we can manage.
Diane: Not to worry, Graziella. We won't be out here very long. In fact, if everything goes as I planned, we might be moving into our new home sooner than I anticipated.
Ashley: Why don't you come sit down, Dad? I've been thinking about you lately. A whole lot. Sometimes I wonder if you even know how much who you are and what you've done for me in my life has made me who I am.
John: Sweetheart, I just tried to do a good job raising you.
Ashley: I know, all by yourself.
John: I'm not complaining.
Ashley: I know. You never do.
John: I wouldn't go that far.
Ashley: Well, I try to follow your example about not complaining, but sometimes it's a little difficult. Especially now, you know. You know, I've also been thinking a lot about my childhood. And when I was around 5 or 6 -- how old was I when I learned to ride a bike?
John: Right around then, yeah. If I remember, I didn't teach you. Jack did.
Ashley: That's true. It was Jack.
Ashley: He was a rotten teacher. You remember that? I went barreling down the hill. I crashed into that little garden wall that was where the apple tree used to be.
John: I remember.
Ashley: You came running out of the house, wanting to make sure that I was all right.
John: That little beauty. You were sobbing your heart out.
Ashley: And you picked me up in your arms. And you held me. I felt so safe, and I felt so loved.
John: Ashley -- something's going on, isn't it? This is not about just remembering. Now, come on, what has happened? Please.
Ashley: It's back. The cancer -- it's come back, Dad.
John: Oh, God, no.
Diego: It's just been a long day. I have a lot on my mind.
Victor: I'm sure you do. Considering you've given notice and you plan to move on. So any job prospects?
Diego: I'll land on my feet.
Victor: Good luck, son.
Victoria: So what did he tell you?
Nikki: Well, apparently, he'd never planned to settle down here. He just felt it was time to move on. Personally, I think he stayed even longer than he wanted to, just to see how things were gonna work out between Nicholas and Sharon.
Victoria: Did he say that?
Nikki: No, not in those exact words. But that's the impression I got.
Miguel: May I bring you ladies anything from inside?
Nikki: Oh, no, I'm fine, Miguel, thanks.
Victoria: I'll be right back.
Victoria: So I hear you're leaving town.
Diego: What do you care, right? Given the way you feel about me.
Victoria: Did I touch a nerve?
Diego: You know what? I don't have time for this, Victoria. You know what? I just gotta get out of here.
Nick: All right, we're back. The guests of honor have arrived again, so let's party. More important, let's eat. No, you can't look at any of that. Want some food? Yeah? All right, let's go.
Serena: I told you it wasn't a palace. My favorite time of the day. Whatcha looking at?
Neil: Sorry. I didn't mean to stare. It's just, you work in a bar.
Serena: And I don't touch a drop while I'm there. I like to drink alone.
Neil: Instead of spending happy hour with a bunch of miserable drunks, like me, huh?
Serena: You said that.
Neil: It's what you were thinking, though, isn't it? Ah, don't worry. If the shoe fits.
Jack: Hey, there, beautiful. How about a kiss?
Phyllis: I don't know. I think my husband will get jealous.
Jack: Oh, I don't think he'd mind.
Phyllis: I don't wanna take a chance.
Jack: You love the guy that much, huh? I know he loves you. More than life itself. Well, you smell good. Your skin is like silk.
Phyllis: Somebody might walk in.
Jack: Who cares? We're married. We're allowed.
Phyllis: So tell me, what happened today? Anything new?
Jack: Yes, as a matter of fact, there was something new.
Jack: I have a little surprise for you.
Phyllis: "Surprise"? For me? Really? You shouldn't have! Did you really think that you could smuggle Diane Jenkins in here --
Jack: I didn't smuggle Diane in. She just showed up.
Phyllis: That was your intent all along.
Jack: Now what the hell does that mean?
Phyllis: You know what kind of person Diane Jenkins is. Still, you want her and Kyle here. So you got what you wanted. Congratulations.
Jack: I need you to work with me on this. I need your help to make this work.
Phyllis: She is manipulating you. And you can't see that because you don't want to see that. And I don't understand it. I will never understand that, Jack. Not in a million years.
Victoria: So tell me about your trip.
Sharon: Oh, it was wonderful.
Victoria: Well, I'm so happy for both of you.
Nick: Thanks, sis.
Victoria: You, too.
Nick: Okay, that's it. No more hugs. Hey, I'd like to say a few words. I just wanted to thank you, actually, from both of us, because it meant a lot knowing that you are all behind us. And we love you guys, very much. And as for our trip, what can I say? I got my wife back. This is the woman I'm gonna spend the rest of my life with. We have amazing family surrounding us, the two best kids in the world. And what more could a guy want? Right, sweetheart?
Sharon: That's right.
Nick: What's wrong? Those are happy tears, right?
Sharon: Of course.
Neil: So have you lived here long?
Serena: Sometimes it feels like all my life. I guess, in a way, that's what it's been.
Neil: What do you mean?
Serena: It's not that bad. I got a roof over my head. Stove, a fridge and a bed to crash in. What more does a person need? That's all I need. Maybe you think different. You stay in these parts long, you'll change your mind.
Neil: Oh my, you seem pretty sure about that.
Serena: Yeah, you know what they say -- in vino veritas. In wine -- in our case, whiskey -- you get the truth.
Neil: But not the strength to face it.
Serena: Sounds like you've been at some lectures. Yeah, well, people that say that stuff, they don't realize. Some truths -- there's like too much pain to face. You gotta do something else, do whatever to deal with it. It works for me.
Neil: Do you remember at the bar when I was talking about letting kids down? You seemed to really understand that. Am I right? Is that why you invited me up here?
Serena: Look, pal, you're the one that wanted to talk, not me. So back off!
Neil: Can I buy a drink or -- what do you want?
Serena: What do I want? What I want is to forget. But you came here, asking questions. It's making me remember.
Neil: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to do that. I didn't realize I was doing it. I'm sorry.
Serena: I just wanna forget. Real bad.
Jack: Look, you seem to think Diane has her sights set on me. Keep in mind, I would have to be part of that plan. Nothing is going to happen. She will leave as soon as she gets a job.
Phyllis: Oh, that's gonna take months and months and months and months.
Jack: I just had a conversation with Diane asking her to stick to the letter of this agreement. If she even asks for anything more, I will boot her out personally.
Phyllis: Oh, yeah? Really, you will? Kyle, too?
Jack: It won't come to that.
Phyllis: Of course, it won't come to that. Of course it won't. Because Kyle is her secret weapon. Actually, he's not so secret. It's her nuclear deterrent.
Jack: I'm asking you to put up with a temporary situation. What I need to know from you is how this is going to affect us.
Phyllis: Oh, you're asking me how this will affect our relationship.
Jack: And you're not answering me.
Phyllis: Okay, here's your answer. It will be hell. I will hate every single moment of this, Jack. I am not happy with this. Especially since you've already shown me where your priorities lie.
Jack: You keep saying that. You are my number one priority.
Phyllis: Give me a break. Words, blah, blah, blah.
Jack: No, it is not just words. You listen to me. I have never told you you are my only priority. I wouldn't tell you that, because it's a lie. I have my work, my health, my son. These are also priorities! Just because I'm asking you to be patient and tolerant right now does not mean that you're not important to me. You're the most important thing in the world to me!
Phyllis: I've got a bad feeling about this. A very bad feeling about this.
Jack: Let me please replace that with a good feeling. Please.
Phyllis: What, you think that you can just sweep me off my feet? Do you think you could just kiss this away?
John: All right, now look. Before we fall apart here, what are we talking about?
Ashley: Okay. I guess I should tell you that what happened -- what happened is I found another lump in my other breast. And unfortunately, the mammogram didn't catch it because -- sad but true -- mammograms don't spot everything. And the doctors don't think it's directly related to my other lump.
John: But the first one is taken care of.
Ashley: Yeah, they think so, yes.
John: Okay. But the second one is different?
Ashley: It could be a completely different cancer altogether.
John: All right. When did you discover this second lump?
Ashley: I was doing a routine self-exam, and I felt something. So I went to my doctor, and they ran some tests. They did two biopsies.
John: Two biopsies?
Ashley: Yeah. The first one was when they took out the lump. And they discovered that it had cancer. It had broken through the ductal walls and had spread to other areas of my breast. So then they took me back in, and they cleaned up the surrounding tissue. And they did what is called a sentinel node biopsy. And that will show if the cancer has gone beyond my breast.
John: Wait a minute. They think it spread?
Ashley: No, they didn't say that. I mean, there's no reason to think that it has or it hasn't, Dad. But once, you know, it becomes invasive cancer, they don't know how far --
John: But this sentinel node biopsy --
Ashley: It's good if it's clean. But I won't know the results for awhile. I mean, later tomorrow sometime.
John: All right. Now that is everything that you've been told?
Ashley: I didn't wanna tell you. I didn't wanna tell you, 'cause I didn't wanna upset you, Dad. But I needed you to know.
John: Come on. You have to tell me. I'm your daddy.
Ashley: Yeah, you're the first one I've talked to about it. But I want everybody else in the family to know tonight.
John: All right. Would you like me to do that for you?
Ashley: Yeah, would you?
John: Of course, I'll take care of it. Anything else?
Ashley: There's something else.
John: What? Just tell me.
Ashley: You know that little girl that fell off her bike when she was 5 or 6 and she needed her dad? She needs him right now. Would you mind just spending the night here tonight with me?
John: Baby -- oh, my baby. I love you so.
