Diane: Phyllis, if we go to war with each other, everyone is going to lose.

Phyllis: You think? Usually, someone wins.

Diane: Fine. If that's the way you want to play it. Just remember the innocent bystanders.

Phyllis: Oh, I hope you don't think that includes you, Diane.

Diane: So, any idea where Jack ran off to?

Phyllis: Jack, my husband? No.

Diane: Well, I'm sure we'll find out eventually. I think this is such a lovely home. Don't you agree?

Phyllis: Yeah, it's mine.

Diane: In case you're wondering, Kyle and I slept beautifully.

Phyllis: In the pool house.

Diane: Well, it's a little cramped, but we'll manage. You know, Phyllis, I really don't understand why you're looking at me like that.

Phyllis: Oh, I think you do.

Diane: No, I don't. The rest of the Abbott family has come to terms with my being here. Haven't you? I mean, after all, you're Mrs. Jack Abbott -- at least for the moment.

Jack: You have to admit, ol' Jackie boy makes a hell of an omelet.

Ashley: Well, it's a lot better than that slop you used to cook when we were growing up.

Jack: Oh, you cut me to the quick. Come on, have one more bite.

Ashley: What are you trying to do, put more meat on my bones?

Jack: Trying to look out for my kid sister.

Ashley: I know you are. And I appreciate it, but do you think we can talk about something else?

Jack: Okay, one last question. The biopsy results -- you're expecting those today, tomorrow? Is that it?

Ashley: Yep, the moment of truth. Okay, enough about me. What's going on with you?

Jack: Oh, I'm hanging in there.

Ashley: Would you please be straight with me?

Jack: I don't want to talk about me right now.

Ashley: I'm asking about Diane. Have you heard from her since she brought Kyle back to Milan? I know this has to be an extremely hard time for you, because I know how much you wanted Kyle with you.

Brad: You've got to be kidding me. Come on, you've had weeks to go over those figures. I want an answer by the end of business today, or the deal is off.

Victor: Glad I found you.

Brad: What can I do for you?

Victor: I was looking for Ashley. She was not in the lab.

Brad: She's not here.

Victor: I haven't spoken with her recently. I just was wondering if everything went well with her radiation treatment. Bradley, I'm asking if your wife is all right.

Brad: Look, Victor, it's really none of your business.

Victor: I care about your wife. I will not stop being concerned.

Brad: Well, that's great. You be concerned. And stay the hell away from her.

Nick: Orders are up? Well, great. That's all I want to hear from you

[Knock on door]

Nick: All right, take care. Hey. I call, and you come running. That's perfect. This feels good. It's been too long since I've held you.

Sharon: You only left the house, what, an hour ago?

Nick: Yeah, but you know, after spending all that time on the island, where all day long all we did was -- I think you remember.

Sharon: I'll never forget.

Nick: Well, that's why I wanted to see you. You know, I think I know what's going on and what you wanted to talk about.

Sharon: You do?

Nick: Yeah, and I should be mad, Sharon, because we've got an amazing life, two great kids, but it's just not enough for you.

Sharon: What do you mean?

Nick: Paradise. It's still in your blood. And, well, I feel the same way. I think I may have found a cure. After that time in the Caribbean, I know it's kinda tough to come home and get back into the swing of things. But I think I got something that will do the trick.

Cassie: Surprise!

Marissa: Mrs. Williams?

Mary: Hello, girls.

Lynne: If you're looking for Paul --

Mary: He isn't in?

Lynne: Not yet.

Mary: Well, then I'll have to find out for myself.

Lynne: Mrs. Williams, I thought I just told you --

Mary: Don't you two have anything better to do?

Lynne: Is there something we can help you with?

Marissa: What are you looking for?

Mary: I'm looking for a sign, something to tell me if Chris is back in Paul's life, which I hope to heaven is not the case.

♫ There's something out there left for you but it's not me

we've reached a point of no return it's only right I set you free

I know I have to turn away but there's nowhere for my love to go

and there won't come a day when I won't honor what we vowed

but I'll go on with my life

we can even say good-bye for now

if that's what we have to do

here in my heart even when my arms are empty, darling I'm still holdin' on to you

there's a place you'll always be

no matter where you are you're here with me

when the world is turning upside down

together we can stand our ground ♫


Chris: Who is it?

Michael: It's me, Michael.

Chris: What brings you by?

Michael: What brings me by? Breakfast.

Chris: How many are you planning to feed?

Michael: Well, didn't want to run the risk of you going hungry.

Chris: Not likely after last night.

Michael: Yeah, I told you that Thai restaurant was out of this world.

Chris: Yeah, it was. It's just that my mouth is still on fire.

Michael: Yeah, I warned you. Here. Cool it down with some fresh orange juice.

Chris: What else do you have in that bag?

Michael: What else do I have? I have all of your favorites. I have coffee -- French roast, thank you very much. I have low-fat blueberry muffins. Very healthy. And the pièce de résistance -- apple turnovers, fresh from the oven.

Chris: So much for light and healthy. Seriously, what's the occasion?

Michael: Occasion is you're here. You -- that's the occasion.

Chris: Michael, don't try and talk me into staying.

Michael: I'm sorry. I just don't like to see you running. And in your heart, you must know that's what you're doing.

Chris: Don't push me. Don't make that mistake.

Lynne: Mrs. Williams, I don't know what you expect to find. Chris hasn't been here.

Mary: Are you sure?

Marissa: Positive.

Lynne: Do you know something we don't?

Mary: I have to believe with Chris coming back that Isabella's plan to entrap my son has failed.

Lynne: So you haven't talked to Paul yourself?

Mary: I keep hoping that he'll call, but he hasn't.

Marissa: And that surprises you?

Mary: I am Paul's mother, and I think that entitles me to be concerned about his welfare.

Lynne: So you want to know if he and Chris are together again.

Mary: Or at the very least, whether Chris' reappearance has made it clear that he can do better than that lying, manipulative girl, Isabella.

Marissa: Forgive me, Mrs. Williams. But I think you have too much time on your hands.

Mary: Well, everybody looks at me as this meddlesome, old woman. But you'll see, Lynne. When you're a mother, you'll understand. You never stop trying to protect your children.

Lynne: Are you sure Paul needs your protection?

Paul: Mother.

Mary: Hello, son. How are you doing?

Paul: If you are wondering about the baby, Ricky Carl is fine.

Mary: Oh, you've named him.

Paul: You don't approve?

Mary: I think your father would be very touched.

Paul: He and Isabella will be released later today. I'm going over there shortly.

Mary: Well, I'm sure Isabella appreciates it. Her first day home, alone with her child.

Michael: I don't want to push you. I don't want to upset you.

Chris: Then drop it right now.

Michael: No.

Chris: Michael, this breakfast was such a nice idea. Don't ruin it.

Michael: I think your entire trip was ruined already, and not by me.

Chris: Please.

Michael: Look, if you can't talk to me, who can you talk to? I know you. I know your life better than anyone. Maybe I can help. Maybe I can. Why don't you give me a chance?

Chris: Who the hell do you think you are? You know me better than anyone? That is ridiculous.

Michael: No, it's not. After everything we've been through together, it's a long road.

Chris: Last night was exactly what I needed -- sensational food, a good friend, a chance to unwind and relax, and not dwell on you know what.

Michael: You know what, or you know who?

Victor: Bradley, all I want to know is if your wife is all right. Why do you have such a problem with that?

Brad: Look, Victor. You really want to be a friend to Ash, then do me --

Victor: Do I need to remind you that I once was married to your wife? I'm deeply concerned about her well-being. Just tell me what I need to know, I'll be on my way.

Brad: You don't need to know anything.

Victor: Is the reason you're obviously in such a bad mood because Ashley's had a setback? Has it been that the radiation treatment is not taking, or what?

Ashley: I know you must be hurting. Your son is thousands of miles away from you. But, if you can, try to focus on this summer when Kyle comes to visit for six weeks, 'cause then you can spend every second of every day with him. Plus, of course, Abby will be here. We have to get those two together. And I think without Diane hovering around, it'll be easier for everybody to open their hearts and really make Kyle feel like one of the family. Don't you agree?

Jack: It -- it's not that.

Ashley: You know, I never really asked you. Exactly what was the judge's ruling? Don't tell me that Diane has to be present for Kyle's visits.

Jack: No, no.

Ashley: Oh, thank God. The last thing any of us wants is to have that woman hanging around. I'm sure you agree with that. Why aren't you saying anything? Has something happened?

Jack: Actually, there have been a couple of developments.

Ashley: What kind of developments?

Jack: Diane hasn't left town. In fact, she's living at the house. I've allowed her to move in.

Paul: All right, so call Doug and schedule a meeting for next week.

Lynne: Sure. Anything else?

Paul: No. If you need me, I shall be at the hospital.

Mary: And on to Isabella's. Paul, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Before you go, I have to ask. What about Chris?

Paul: What about her?

Mary: Well, I know the two of you have spoken. Where do things stand?

Paul: You know what? It's none of your damn business.

Mary: Well, you can see, things between my son and me are not good.

Lynne: I'm sorry.

Mary: So am I. I was hoping that once Chris returned, not only would Paul realize that Isabella is wrong for him --

Lynne: He'd wash out with Chris, too.

Mary: The problems that broke up that marriage still exist, Lynne.

Lynne: Exactly what are you afraid of? Do you want Paul to be alone?

Mary: No, I want him to be happy, fulfilled, which he never will be when he's under Chris' spell. There are too many issues between them for there to be any real chance of rekindling that relationship.

Lynne: Then you must be relieved.

Mary: I just hope that this can be a turning point for my son, that he can finally get his life moving in a positive direction, or, at the very least, I'm sure he's finally rid of that she-devil, Isabella. That's a step in the right direction.

Cassie: Hey, Mom.

Sharon: Hi, sweetie, what are you doing here?

Cassie: Dad asked me to come.

Sharon: Oh. Nick, what's this all about?

Nick: Well, do you remember how we were saying earlier that it's kinda hard to get back in the groove of things? I figured some quality time with our amazing daughter might just do the trick.

Cassie: Dad picked me up from school. You're not mad, are you?

Sharon: No, no, honey. I'm just a little confused. What about Noah?

Cassie: He's at playgroup with Lisa.

Nick: I know what you're thinking -- that she should be in school right now.

Cassie: I'm only missing a couple of classes. And besides, Dad thought I could help cheer you up. Before you left on your trip, I told Dad that I'd cross my fingers that everything worked out, and it did. Now I know that wishes can really come true.

Sharon: Oh, sweetie --

Cassie: Dad, this was the best idea.

Nick: I know. Hook me up.

[Sharon remembering]

Diego: It's your call. If you decide to tell Nick the truth about us --

Sharon: If? If? What other choice do I have? I demand honesty from Nick. He deserves no less from me.

Nick: It's a good choice. I didn't even think of that. What if we take -- ?

Diego: Sure, it might lift this burden off your back, but it's just gonna dump it right back on Nick.

Cassie: Mom, are you okay?

Sharon: Of course I am, honey. What could be wrong?

Nick: Well, ladies, I hate to say it, but I think we should break this up.

Cassie: It's time already?

Nick: Yeah, we really got to get you back to school. Don't worry, you're gonna see Mom tonight, and we'll have a good time, okay?

Cassie: Okay.

Nick: Hey, Sherry? Could you come in here a second?

Sherry: Yes, Nick?

Nick: Could you please take Cassie back to school?

Sherry: Sure, I can do that.

Nick: Thank you very much.

Cassie: I hope you're feeling better, Mommy.

Sharon: I am, sweetie.

Cassie: Can we do this again?

Nick: We'll see.

Cassie: Okay. I love you.

Nick: I love you, too. Have a good time at school.

Cassie: Okay, bye.

[Sharon remembering]

Diego: If you tell Nick the truth about us and it breaks you up, you'll just be destroying your family.

Phyllis: That mouth of yours is going to get you into a lot of trouble, Diane.

Diane: Oh, I'm sorry. I was under the impression that you were okay with this arrangement. Surely, Jack discussed it with you first. Or didn't you have a say in the matter? I have to admit. It makes perfect sense. Jack wants to be with his son. And I want to allow him to be with his son.

Phyllis: Yeah, and you want to worm your way back into his life.

Diane: I'm already a part of his life, thanks to Kyle.

Phyllis: Thanks to Kyle. Listen, I know your agenda. I know what you're up to. And your agenda goes far beyond helping Jack bond with is son. This supposed time limit, one month, give me a break.

Diane: Yeah, that's when that Glow by Jabot thing starts. No more pool house.

Phyllis: You know, you think you have the upper hand just because you've parked yourself and your little tyke in the middle of --

Diane: You know, Phyllis, you're really starting to grate my nerves. Is there a point to this?

Phyllis: Yes, there is a point. Let me tell you. You better find a job right away or else.

Diane: Why is that?

Phyllis: Because you're on my turf now.

Diane: Well, for the moment it's your turf. Don't forget. I used to live here, too, back when Jack and I were engaged. In fact, we shared the very same bedroom. I bet it hasn't changed a bit. Same sheets and everything. What's the matter, Phyllis? You're looking a little flushed.

Phyllis: Am I? Am I looking flushed? I'm warning you.

Diane: Are you warning me, or are you threatening me? You know how important this arrangement is to Jack, and I certainly intend to do my part. Now, if you're feeling insecure --

Phyllis: Oh, insecure.

Diane: Yeah, well, you know what? You sound a little paranoid. And there's really no point. All I want is for Jack to spend time with his son. You know what? I would think that you'd want the same thing, too. I mean, imagine how fulfilling it will be for your husband. Well, I'd really love to stay and chat, but Kyle is with his nanny, and I need to go check on him.

Phyllis: You haven't won, Diane. And you won't win.

Chris: You're not gonna let this drop, are you? Michael, I appreciate your concern. But it's not necessary.

Michael: Spoken bravely yet foolishly.

Chris: I could take offense at that.

Michael: Yes, you could, but I'm hoping you don't.

Chris: You know something? I am a survivor. All right? So maybe I'm going through something. It'll pass.

Michael: Well, not if you clamp down, and you don't talk about it, and you let it fester.

Chris: What is this? Psychology 101?

Michael: What happened with Paul?

Chris: Nothing.

Michael: Something happened. I know that. You can deny it till hell freezes over. I know you too well.

Chris: You know, you don't know me as well as you think. You act as if Paul controls my life. That couldn't be further from the truth.

Michael: Okay, then Paul did have something to do with it.

Chris: I didn't say that.

Michael: You didn't have to! Don't you think I know there's only one person who could make you as upset as you were last night?!

Chris: Besides you?

Michael: This is not like you.

Chris: I had a bad day.

Michael: You didn't have a bad day. You had a terrible day. Paul did something, or Paul didn't do something, and now you're running away from it. You know what I think?

Chris: I'm sure you're going to tell me.

Michael: I don't think you're coping well with Paul and his little love nest with Isabella and, now, the baby.

Chris: Damn it, it is because of me that he has that.

Michael: Yeah, I know. You said that before.

Chris: Will you stop? Will you just please stop?

Michael: I know this is a very raw nerve I'm hitting.

Chris: Michael, I don't want to talk about it.

Michael: Let me see if I can piece this together.

Chris: Oh, God.

Michael: You didn't expect to feel what you felt when you saw Paul.

Chris: All right, fine. I never would have come back here if I didn't believe that my feelings for Paul had been put to rest.

Michael: But -- not true.

Chris: We both received notice that our divorce was final.

Michael: Yeah. And you felt free.

Chris: Exactly. So why not come home?

Michael: Good point.

Chris: Only I was blindsided. And so was Paul.

Michael: Yes. Unexpected feelings that have come back to haunt you.

Chris: When we ran into each other, the circumstances -- they were just so weird. I came home to take a shower.

[Chris remembering]

[Chris gasps]

Paul: Chris!

Chris: Would you put that thing away?

Paul: What are you doing here?

Chris: I didn't think you were still living in the apartment.

Paul: Are you here to stay?

Chris: I'm working on a case. I haven't decided what I'm gonna do.

Michael: Hmm. You in a towel. That's some reunion.

Chris: It's not what you're thinking.

Michael: Yeah? Well, then Paul's an idiot.

Chris: We were just both caught off-guard. And the electricity, it was incredible. And then Isabella called, and I told him to go to her.

Michael: Yeah, good thing you did. I hear it was touch and go with her.

Chris: Yeah, she had a stroke. She could have died, but in spite of all of that, she had a beautiful, healthy baby boy.

Michael: Mmm. From what I hear, she'll make a full recovery.

Chris: That's what I hear, too. And the baby's fine. So now they can be together. They can be a family with no outside interference. You see, it all worked out perfectly.

Isabella: Here we are, sweetie. We're home. Your daddy and I brought you here. We're very happy you're with us. Aren't we?

Paul: He's such a beautiful baby.

Isabella: God, he is, isn't he?

Paul: Here, you better let me take him.

Isabella: I don't want to.

Paul: I know. He's just come home from the hospital. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. I don't want you to overexert yourself. You want to sit down?

Isabella: Sure.

Paul: Yes, yes, yes, yes. Oh, yes. Look at you. I know. My, what beautiful, big, blue lips you have. Yes.

Isabella: This is awkward, isn't it?

Paul: Yeah, I'm sorry about that.

Isabella: I don't think it's your fault.

Paul: Come again?

Isabella: I put a lot of blame on myself, that stupid ultimatum, demanding that you marry me immediately. I don't think I should have put that kind of pressure on you. If I hadn't --

Paul: You know, Isabella, I don't know if things -- I'm just not sure things would've turned out differently.

Isabella: Maybe not. Then again, we'd be living together, and you might have been less vulnerable to Christine.

Paul: Yeah, maybe. Maybe.

Isabella: You know, you said before you wanted to take things one day at a time. Are you still up for that?

Paul: You know, you never told me how you feel.

Isabella: Truth be told, I'm a little sick of this roller coaster ride.

[Doorbell rings]

Isabella: Who could that be?

Paul: I'll get it. I'll be right back. I gotta get the door.

Phyllis: Wait a second. What are you telling me? Neil was supposed to handle all of this. Okay. I'll be there shortly.

Diane: Is Jack back yet?

Phyllis: Does it look like he's back, Diane?

Diane: Well, whatever he's doing must be very important.

Phyllis: What is this? Is this for my benefit?

Diane: Pardon me?

Phyllis: This little, skimpy outfit, Diane. Then do me a favor. Put it away and keep it at the pool house, all right?

Diane: I'm not wearing a bathing suit under this. In fact, I'm not wearing anything at all. I'm taking a shower.

Phyllis: There's one in the pool house.

Diane: Yeah, the size of a postage stamp. If I remember correctly, the guest bath is quite spacious. You know, I think being in Europe spoiled me. I just love those old-fashioned baths where the shower is in a separate room. It's so much more civilized.

Phyllis: If you think you're going to make a habit out of this --

Diane: There you go, sounding paranoid again. Don't tell me you have a problem with me taking a shower? I mean, after all, a girl has to look her best.

Nick: Hey. Listen, after everything that we've been through, I want you to know that I am always here for you. I'm serious. 24/7, I'm right here. So, if you're going through something, you don't have to go through it alone. See, communication is the key. That's why we got sidetracked last time. We stopped talking to each other. We stopped letting each other know what we're feeling. So, if there's something on your mind, I want to know what it is. I don't care what it is, okay? I will support you 100%.

Sharon: Nick, we're so happy now. We can't let anything destroy that. Nothing.

Nick: What could?

Victor: I am right, am I not, Bradley? The treatment isn't going well, is it?

Brad: Since this whole crisis started, Ashley's been reluctant to tell even her family what's going on. She doesn't want to burden anyone.

Victor: It is not a burden to me.

Brad: Look, Victor, the bottom line is some things in this world are none of your business.

Victor: Why don't you simply tell me what she's being treated for?

Bradley: Damn it, man. You just don't give up do you?

Victor: Not when someone that I care about is in jeopardy, no.

Brad: We don't really know what the situation is, all right? We're waiting for some test results. Now I'm telling you for the last time, just stay the hell away.

Victor: I will find out what her prognosis is. And I will do everything in my power to help her.

Jack: Obviously, I couldn't have Diane living under the same roof as Phyllis and me, so I moved them into the pool house.

Ashley: For how long?

Jack: For a few weeks until we get the summer internet project started. I know what you're thinking. I really didn't have a choice.

Ashley: Oh, why? She was gonna run off and take that job in Japan?

Jack: Look, everybody has already told me they think it's a horrible idea. You can save your breath.

Ashley: Have you completely lost your mind, Jack? I know Diane better than anybody. Obviously better than you do.

Jack: If you're worried about Phyllis and me --

Ashley: I am worried about Phyllis and you. Diane doesn't give a damn about your marriage, Jack. I still remember your wedding day to Patty Williams. Do you remember that lovely day? When I had to drag you out of bed with Diane to take you to your wedding? And don't tell me that Diane's changed, because I know she hasn't.

Jack: No, no, but I've changed. The point is, I've changed.

Ashley: The point is you've let that woman into your home.

Jack: So I could be with my son. Look, I realize your concern, and I appreciate --

Ashley: You are gonna be so very sorry.

Jack: Listen to me. There is no reason for you to get worked up about this. This is not history repeating itself.

Ashley: You have let her into your home!

Jack: She was about to take my son to Tokyo!

Ashley: Oh, baloney.

Jack: What, do you think she's blowing smoke there?

Ashley: You bet. Call her bluff. That job offer will disappear like that. But she won't. She'll find another excuse to hang around and make everybody's lives miserable.

Jack: I've allowed for the possibility she is bluffing. What if she isn't? She could take off for Japan right now. She could take off -- I'd never see her again.

Ashley: No, no, the judge said that she would use --

Jack: I don't take much comfort from what the judge says, thank you very much. Don't you see? I can't take the risk. I can't!

Ashley: Jack, by letting that woman into your home, you're taking a much bigger risk -- with your marriage.

[Shower running]

[Toilet flushing]

[Diane screams]

Diane: Ow! Ow!

Phyllis: Oops.

Paul: Please, come on in.

Judge: How have you been, son?

Paul: Oh, I've been well. Thank you.

Judge: How long has it been?

Paul: You know, I have no idea. You know, I'm a little surprised. I wasn't expecting you for another half hour, yet.

Isabella: Judge.

Judge: Stewart Parrish. Pleased to meet you. I take it you're Isabella?

Isabella: Yeah, yeah. I am Isabella. Paul, what in the world --

Paul: Judge Parrish is here because I invited him.

Michael: What did you say to Paul?

Chris: The truth.

Michael: Hmm -- which truth?

Chris: That he belongs with Isabella and the baby. That's his future.

Michael: Was he questioning that?

Chris: What do you think?

Michael: Were you questioning that?

Chris: No. I'm not questioning it, because it's the right thing. It is.

Michael: Yeah, but now you're dying inside.

Chris: Michael, if we had tried again, if we had taken that step and it didn't work out, I would have robbed Paul of everything. He wouldn't have me or Isabella, or the baby. There are no guarantees. And I just -- I couldn't risk that. I couldn't be that selfish. Now do you see why I have to leave? And maybe you're right. Maybe I am running away. But it's what I have to do.

Michael: No. No. No, Chris, don't go. Please stay.
