Dru: You're more involved in Lily's life, to be honest with you. But I just don't --
Neil: But you want to continue calling the shots.
Dru: I did not say that. Neil, you came by for a reason.
Neil: I did. That's right. Because I want to learn more about Lily.
Dru: Okay. Shouldn't that tell you something? That you're still in the dark about our daughter?
Wes: Right. But the minute there's a problem, you just jump right in, assuming you can handle a complex situation.
Neil: Complex situation?
Wes: You don't really know Lily. But does that stop you from barging in, throwing your weight around? What are you trying to do, Neil? Let us know there's a new sheriff in town?
Neil: I am trying to get through to my daughter. Something you two haven't done very successfully.
Dru: Oh, wait just a second, Neil.
Neil: No. I have watched the way you've handled Lily -- by holding her hand, letting her blame her problems on other people. That's flat-out wrong. And I'm here to tell you that it's not gonna happen any longer.
Nikki: There you are, darling. I was wondering when you would get home. Oh, dear. Don't tell me you had another run-in with Victoria? You know, you never really did tell me what happened last night.
Victor: My daughter slapped me across my face --
Victor: -- And told me she hated me.
Nikki: My God. Because of Diego? Oh, Victor, I'm almost afraid to ask. But what did you do to make Victoria so upset?
Victoria: Hi, Mrs. Guittierez. It's Victoria. Is Diego there?
Adela: No. Shouldn't he be at work?
Victoria: Yeah. He really doesn't have a set schedule.
Adela: This the second time you've called recently. Is anything wrong?
Victoria: No, it's just that, you know, I've been so busy, I haven't had a chance to track him down. I just thought maybe you had heard from him. If you do, can you have him call me, please?
Adela: Of course.
Wes: Don't you think you're being a little bit presumptuous, Neil?
Neil: Right word, doc. Wrong guy.
Wes: Okay, if you're implying that --
Neil: I'm not implying anything. We both know why Drucilla came back. She needed help with our daughter. Her daughter was giving her fits. It seems like you invited yourself along for the ride, man.
Wes: In case you've forgotten, Neil, I'm the only real father figure Lily's had in a while.
Neil: Oh, yeah, yeah, I see. So a father tells her that the other kids in the classroom are jerks, that she should change schools instead of dealing with them. Come on, man. You're a psychiatrist. I know that you know that isn't right. But, instead, you're too busy being her friend, her buddy-buddy.
Dru: Neil, please --
Neil: No, I'm sorry, Dru. But this man needs to hear this. Being a parent isn't a popularity contest. It isn't telling Lily what she wants to hear, man. It's telling her what she needs to hear.
Wes: I am well aware of that, Neil.
Neil: Okay, good. So, when you have kids of your own one day, you'll do a terrific job. In the meantime, I have no problem at all with you being friends with my daughter. But I'm gonna tell you this now. That I am her father, okay? And that she needs me now. She needs me.
Wes: I completely agree. No, but how about working your way up a little you know, why not try letting her see you as a father before you start laying down the law as a father?
Neil: You have a problem with the way that I handled that situation? I mean, do you honestly believe that kissing her behind is the right way to deal with that child?
Dru: Can I say something here? Are you going to be the disciplinarian now, Neil? Is that okay?
Neil: Yeah. You're damn right I'm gonna be the disciplinarian. I'm gonna do whatever I have to do here. Drucilla, we have a lovely, smart, talented girl who needs guidance, not pals who say, "How high?" when that girl says, "Jump." All right. You know what? I think that we have discussed everything that we need to discuss, Wesley. And, right now, I'd like a moment with my ex-wife alone, if you don't mind.
Wes: You know, I'm gonna stop by later, okay?
Dru: Okay. What the hell are you trying to pull?
Nikki don't believe this. You actually gave Diego $100,000 to leave town?
Victor: I did. Obviously to protect our daughter.
Nikki: I thought we agreed not to interfere in our children's lives.
Victor: Stand by and watch that snake take advantage of my daughter the way he took advantage of Nicholas and Sharon and ruined their lives?
Nikki: Victor, she's in love with him.
Victor: Who cares? She'll get over it.
Nikki: How do you know that? You don't know that. You did the same thing with Ryan.
Nikki: What are you thinking? You can't do that. You can't buy Diego off and think that Victoria will completely forget about him.
Victor: What the hell are you talking about? He was using her. As soon as she realizes that, the sooner she'll get that scum out of her life.
Victoria: I don't believe it. You wouldn't leave me. You wouldn't leave me for $100,000. You wouldn't leave me for $1 million. Where are you? Why haven't you called me?
Dru: Okay. So, you've cleaned up your act, and you stopped drinking. And that is admirable. But you've turned into superman. I mean, you're Mr. Fix-it. You're fixing everybody's problems now.
Neil: No, that's not true. Not everyone's, just Lily's. Come on, face it -- Lily is fourteen years old. We only have her for a few more years, and then she's out of the house.
Dru: You're worried she won't be able to cope?
Neil: I certainly hope she will.
Dru: But you are worried?
Neil: Of course. She's my baby. Drucilla, she's a great girl. But she's so full of anger and resentment.
Dru: At me?
Neil: No. Both of us.
Dru: Because we were such lousy parents?
Neil: Because she hasn't had a family, not one she can count on.
Dru: Of course, that would be my fault.
Neil: No, it's both of our faults. But you were the one who picked her up and dragged her off to Paris when she was a little girl, chasing your dream of being a big-time model.
Dru: Well, I'm not gonna apologize for my success.
Neil: Well, I didn't say you should. But, you see, while you were running around Europe, dragging around my daughter like a piece of luggage from country to country, hotel to hotel, tutor to tutor, you were being a full-time fashion diva and only a part-time mom.
Dru: And I didn't see you pitch in! You were never anywhere around!
Neil: Okay, all right, I agree with you. I wasn't. So what happens here is we both take responsibility, right? Drucilla, we have a serious problem on our hands here. We have a little girl who doesn't know the meaning of the word "home." You wonder why she's hanging out with the wrong crowd? Well, surprise, surprise. She doesn't have a sense of family. She doesn't know what core values are all about.
Dru: And that's gonna change, right?
Neil: Yeah, you bet. Startin' right now.
Diane: This is nice, isn't it? The two of us alone, having this time together?
Jack: Yeah, it is nice.
Diane: You must have some idea how much this means to me.
Jack: Yeah, I think I have some idea.
Diane: You know my secret, don't you?
Jack: Your secret?
Diane: I'm not sure whether I should admit it or not.
Jack: Diane, if you have something you want to tell me, if there's something you need to say --
Diane: There is. Though I can't imagine you haven't figured it out already.
Jack: Figured out what?
Diane: This must be a difficult time for you -- everything that's happening with Phyllis.
Jack: Let's just leave her out of this tonight.
Diane: I'm glad to hear you say that. The last thing I want is for her to intrude on our perfect evening together. Just watch. I am going to make you forget all about her.
Michael: I take it you and Jack are still on the outs.
Phyllis: Yes, we are, like you wouldn't believe.
Michael: Then why is John Silva representing you?
Phyllis: Because he's the best attorney in town.
Michael: He's an Abbott stooge.
Phyllis: Well, Michael, who do you suggest represent me?
Michael: Yours truly.
Michael: Yeah, oh. Look, why would you want an attorney defending you who was handpicked by your husband, who just happens to think that you're guilty?
Phyllis: You know, I appreciate your offer but --
Michael: But what? You would rather stay in jail? Look at me, Phyllis. No, no, look at me. Unbelievable. I know what you're doing.
Phyllis: What am I doing? I'm rotting in a hellhole, while Jack and Diane --,
Michael: While Jack and Diane what? What? They reacquainted? That's what all this is about, isn't it? You and your husband are trying to run a scam.
Phyllis: I have no idea what you're talking about.
Michael: You know, Phyllis, it's me you're talking to. Hmm? You think that if Jack gets nice and cozy with Diane that she'll say or do something that'll give herself away, something that will get you off the hook.
Phyllis: No, I don't. No.
Michael: You don't want to tell me, fine. Fine. How cozy is he prepared to be? I mean, if the chips are down, is he ready to go all the way?
Phyllis: He's doing it for me. He's trying to save my life. Let me tell you something. If you say one word to Diane Jenkins -- I swear to you -- if you mention one syllable regarding this, you're dead. Do you hear me? You're dead.
Dru: Okay. You know, before you lay down the law again, I just thought I would let you know that lots of kids do just fine living with one parent.
Neil: Right. As long as they have stability in the home.
Dru: Which Lily doesn't have, according to you.
Neil: Face it, Dru, living in Paris wasn't exactly conducive to raising a child.
Dru: You know, I will admit I did a lot of traveling, okay? And maybe Wes and I are not married. But you know what? She is crazy about him.
Neil: I'm not arguing that.
Dru: What are you arguing?
Neil: He's a boyfriend. Has he really made a commitment to you two, hmm? I mean, I know you two have a lot of fun, but what happens when my man takes off?
Dru: Who said he's taking off?
Neil: Well, who says he isn't? And if and when he does take a hike, how's that gonna affect Lily? Tell me.
Dru: I don't know, you tell me. Let's see. Enter Neil Winters -- Rescue Daddy?
Neil: Lily and I need to have a relationship. Wes is aware of that. Isn't that why you came back to Genoa City? So Lily and I could have some kind of a relationship again?
Dru: Isn't that already happening, Neil?
Neil: Yeah. But don't you see? She doesn't have a sense of family. And there's only one way to make that happen.
Neil: By living under the same roof with her mother and father.
Dru: Whoa, wait a minute. Where are you goin' there?
Neil: No. Now, look, I'm not getting down on bended knee here. But I think it's imperative that Lily, you and I, we're all together again.
Dru: For Lily's sake?
Neil: Right. Now, I'm not suggesting that, you know, we start shacking up together.
Dru: Of course not.
Neil: Yeah, and look, I don't give a damn about the sleeping arrangements. What is important is that we're all together again as a family.
Dru: And you don't think that Lily will find this a tad odd?
Neil: I realize it isn't the perfect solution. But I think we both agree, Lily needs help. I mean, do you have a better idea?
Dru: I mean, it's just blowing my mind to think that you and I would be living under the same roof again.
Neil: Dru, just think about it. You don't have to give me an answer right now. But I honestly believe that Lily will benefit greatly from this. I think you know that, too. Good night.
Nikki: Listen to yourself. You talk about Diego as if he's the plague.
Victor: He's caused our family nothing but grief. You know that.
Nikki: Well, mistakes have been made on all sides. To blame everything on him is wrong.
Victor: You're not now defending that parasite, are you?
Nikki: You know, I spoke to Diego -- I don't know if you knew about that -- shortly after all this stuff came out.
Victor: I see. You mean how he seduced our daughter-in-law, how he ruined our son's marriage and how he now lied to our daughter.
Nikki: In spite of your bitter condemnation of that man, I happen to believe that his feelings for Victoria are sincere. And, unlike you, I can put myself in her shoes. And I'm telling you, Victor, she is in love with him.
Victor: It breaks my heart. In other words, what you're saying is, we should allow that man to manipulate our daughter? He took the money and ran. Does that tell you something about his character?
Nikki: It's nothing to you. You don't care. $100,000 -- big deal. That's a small price to pay, isn't it?
Victor: A very small price, provided that man is out of our lives.
[Knocking at door ]
Victoria: Diego? Oh, God. I knew you'd come back.
Raul: Still no sign of my brother?
Victoria: No. You know, you'd think he'd call me and let me know he's not dead.
Raul: Have you been calling around?
Victoria: I've called everyone I know. I even called your mom.
Raul: You didn't say anything?
Victoria: No, of course not.
Raul: Oh, man, they're gonna start asking questions. I gotta tell 'em something.
Victoria: Just give him a little more time.
Raul: We've given him plenty of time.
Victoria: I don't care. He wouldn't take that money and leave. He knows me. He wouldn't throw that away. He wouldn't. He'll be back. He's gotta come back.
O'Brian: Hey, Doc. How'd it go?
Dr. Napolitano: We were able to relieve the pressure on his brain.
O'Brian: But he still hasn't regained consciousness?
Dr. Napolitano: Afraid not.
O'Brian: What are his chances?
Dr. Napolitano: I can't answer that. The next twenty-four hours will be critical.
Wes: That was quick.
Dru: Well, Neil cut right to the chase. He feels that Lily needs her family.
Wes: She has a family.
Dru: A normal, stable, intact family.
Wes: Sure, that's always best, if it can be arranged. No great insight there.
Dru: True. But what Neil has in mind might seem a little bizarre.
Wes: Well, let's hear it.
Dru: He feels that Lily and me should move in with him. You know, we'd all be under one roof as one big, happy family.
Diane: So, here we are.
Diane: Did you ever think we could be this close again?
Jack: It's amazing, isn't it?
Jack: Listen, a little earlier, you were about to tell me something.
Diane: Was I?
Jack: Yeah. You said you thought maybe I'd figured it out by now.
Diane: Oh, right.
Jack: Well, I'm not sure I have.
Diane: I just want you to know how much it means to me, your being here. You know, it's something that I've wanted for a long time -- to have a good relationship with you, Jack. I hated being at odds with you.
Jack: Yeah, there was a lot of tension then. It took its toll on both of us.
Diane: Yeah. But now things are turning around. And I'm seeing a bright future. You're not there yet. That's okay. I understand. But at least there's a light at the end of the tunnel. This won't go on forever. The trial will happen soon. And you can start putting this whole ugly episode behind you.
Jack: You know, the truth is, I look to the future these days and -- I don't see much light.
Diane: You know what you need? You need a guide. You need someone to lead you back to the land of the living. Someone to make you feel alive again.
Jack: You got someone in mind for the job?
Diane: Don't go anywhere.
Michael: All right. So this "Mission: Impossible" Jack's trying to pull off -- what does he expect to get out of Diane, other than a good time?
Phyllis: Do you remember that bogus security tape?
Michael: Yeah, the one from the hardware store where you're trying to buy paint thinner.
Phyllis: No. Where somebody who's dressed up to look like me is trying to buy paint thinner.
Michael: So you think Diane's loose lips and other parts of her anatomy are gonna help reveal who this mysterious woman is.
Phyllis: Yes. She either hired someone or it's a friend of hers.
Michael: And you really expect Jack to gently squeeze all this information out of Diane? Talk about the ultimate sacrifice.
Phyllis: What are you doing to me? What are doing? Don't make light of this. We're talking about my life here.
Michael: All right. Okay. You know what? Don't worry. I'm not gonna go to Diane. If she set you up, she deserves to go down. And if she's innocent, she gets a roll in the hay with the man of her dreams.
Phyllis: You shut up! Do you hear me? You shut up!
Guard: That's it. Time's up.
Phyllis: I don't want to hear this!
Michael: We're okay, guard. Mrs. Abbott's off her meds.
Guard: I said time's up, counselor.
Michael: Sorry to be so cruel. You know, when you play the game, the other team can score, too.
Raul: No luck?
Victoria: I just don't understand why he's not answering.
Raul: Your dad gave him a lot to think about. It could be that he's out gathering up his courage.
Victoria: To do what?
Raul: To go see your father, tell him to take his money and shove it.
Victoria: You know, your brother is the best thing that's happened to me in a long time. Just because my father doesn't agree or approve, what does he do? He tries to buy him off. I mean, he doesn't care if I'm happy. He doesn't care if I'm in love. Nicholas and Sharon always come first.
Raul: What do you mean?
Victoria: He still blames Diego for all the problems they're having. Like Sharon had nothing to do with it.
Raul: Look, Victoria, I understand where you're coming from. But your dad is a very intimidating guy. Diego was already feeling bad about all the trouble he caused.
Victoria: What are you saying?
Raul: I'm saying I think that we should at least consider the possibility that maybe, just maybe, Diego took the money and left town, like your dad believes.
Nikki: I mean, I will admit that this is not the ideal relationship I would want for my daughter.
Victor: Then you should be thanking me for getting rid of that dirt ball.
Nikki: You are missing the point.
Victor: What's the point?
Nikki: The point is that she deserved our support. She should have known that we respected her judgment.
Victor: Our daughter's a bright and beautiful woman. When it comes to matters of the heart --
Nikki: What? What? She needs daddy to tell her who she can fall in love with and who she can't? I really question your judgment, Victor. It's been very suspect lately. First, you take Sharon's side, who is as guilty, if not more so, than Diego. And now you have completely alienated your relationship with Victoria.
Victor: Obviously, we see the situation differently, don't we?
Nikki: Yes, we do. Yes, we do. But I hope that we will agree on one thing. And that is that this family is in a crisis. And we certainly don't need any more conflict.
Victor: Our daughter will come around.
Nikki: I don't know about that. I hope I'm wrong. But, Victor, I really worry that you have gone too far this time. I think you may have permanently damaged your relationship with your daughter.
Dru: What's so funny?
Dru: Then why're you laughing?
Wes: Well, surely you realize what Neil is after?
Dru: I realize that he's trying to put together a sense of family for our daughter.
Wes: While getting his wife back at the same time.
Wes: You know, I gotta hand it to him, though. The guy's got a lot more ambition than I gave him credit for.
Dru: You know, you are way off base.
Wes: Am I?
Dru: Yeah. He flat out told me he is not trying to get the two of us back together again, okay?
Wes: Really? How long do you think it'll take?
Dru: How long do I -- oh, you think I'm gonna be there for a couple days. I won't be able to restrain myself from jumping his bones? You're pathetic.
Wes: Face it, Dru, the man is still in love with you.
Dru: No, he is not in love with me.
Wes: Fine. Then what about us?
Dru: I keep telling you this is not about us. It's about Lily.
Wes: Well, did you make a decision?
Dru: How can I make a decision? My head's still spinnin'.
Wes: You wanna know what I think? I agree. I think that providing Lily with a stable home, a mother and father under the same roof -- that would be extremely beneficial, especially now.
Dru: You actually think this is a good idea?
Wes: I do. In fact, I like it so much I wanna make it happen. Let's get married, Dru.
Dru: You're joking?
Wes: No. No. Not about this. This is not exactly how I envisioned doing this, but come on. Say you'll be my wife.
Dr. Napolitano: Still no word on our John Doe?
O'Brian: Well, no one's called looking for anyone who fits his description.
Dr. Napolitano: It hasn't been that long. His family might not even know he's missing.
O'Brian: When they do, it's gonna be a heck of a shock.
Dr. Napolitano: I just hope they get here soon. I'd hate for them to be too late.
Victoria: No. No, Raul. That's not what happened.
Raul: Victoria, I don't like --
Victoria: Diego wouldn't leave me.
Raul: He's always done it in the past. As soon as things get rough, he takes off.
Victoria: Well, he's changed. He has, Raul. He's changed. I know it. We've talked about this. We've talked about how he could never settle down and how he's never been able to commit to anyone. But he was willing to commit to me. We were gonna get our own place together. We were gonna start a new life together. We still are -- as soon as he comes back home.
Raul: And when will that be?
Victoria: Tonight. Tonight. He's gonna come home tonight. I have to believe that. Because if I don't --
[Diane clears her throat]
Jack: Oh, my God. As if you weren't alluring enough already.
Diane: What do you think?
Jack: I think -- I'm not sure I can think with you standing there looking like that.
Diane: Tonight isn't about thinking. It's about feeling. It's about sharing our feelings. It's what I wanted to tell you before, what I suspect you already realize. You must know how much I love you, Jack. Even after everything we've been through, I still love you so very much.
Diane: I want you so much.
Jack: I want that, too.
Diane: Make love to me, Jack. Please, make love to me. Oh, Jack.
Jack: Wait. Wait, wait, wait.
Jack: I just don't want to hurt your leg.
Diane: Don't worry. I can take it off.
Guard: Lights out!
