Y&R Transcript Monday 12/16/02--Canada; Tuesday 12/17/02--USA
John: Paul, thank you so much. Just unbelievable.
Paul: Hey, our pleasure.
John: And, Lynne, you, too.
John: Phyllis, Phyllis, my dear Phyllis. I can't tell you how pleased and thankful I am for you. Mmm. And good lord, jack. Talk about pulling a rabbit out of the hat.
Jack: Well, we have Paul Williams to thank for that. Boy, when you say, "I think I got an idea," you don't kid around, do you?
Paul: Well, I'm just glad it hit me when it did.
Jack: Well, seriously, Lynne, Paul, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Lynne: You're very welcome, jack.
Jack: How are you doing, o innocent one?
Phyllis: Uh, I'm good, thank you. I'm-I'm-I'm doing good.
Jack: You seem a little spaced out. I think it's understandable. I cannot believe it. I can just hug you or kiss you any time I want to. Wowee!
J.T.: You okay?
Colleen: Do I look okay?
J.T.: H, easy. You don't have to take my head off.
Colleen: I'm sorry, but I just cannot believe my dad. He's totally betraying me.
J.T.: Oh, you're being kind of hard on him.
Colleen: Excuse me?
J.T.: Look, I know you're mad at him for telling your mom you're here, but--
Colleen: But nothing! He ratted me out.
J.T.: He was in a tough spot. And, anyway, your mom was gonna find out. It's not like you could hide out here forever.
Colleen: (Sighs) what am I gonna do? Any minute, my mom is gonna come marching through that door, drag me off to the airport. Only this time, she'll have me in handcuffs.
J.T.: Yeah, she's gonna be pretty upset, that's for sure.
Colleen: You can still save yourself, if you leave before she gets here.
J.T.: No. I'm staying.
Colleen: Why would you want to?
J.T.: Because I'm not letting somebody's mom run me off.
Colleen: You're one brave man, J.T. Hellstrom.
Ashley: Your daughter's not very happy with you.
Brad: Yeah, there's not much I can do about that now, is there? What was she thinking?
Ashley: She was trying to make a point.
Brad: By sneaking out of the airport, and leaving her mother to wonder what happened to her? She thinks that's gonna help her cause?
Ashley: She's desperate, honey.
Brad: You know, the way you say that, you don't...
Ashley: What? Condone what she did?
Brad: Do you?
Ashley: Of course not. She crossed the line. But I will s t this-- Traci seems to think that parenting is about control. Maybe that works for a child in kindergarten, but it's not gonna work with colleen any longer. She'd better wake up and realize that.
Brad: Before the kids got here, you were gonna tell me something about Abby's biological father.
Ashley: Oh, let's not get into that right now.
Brad: But you are going to tell me.
Ashley: Yeah, absolutely. I just want to be able to talk to you about it, and there's just too much going on right now.
Brad: You're sure that's the only reason?
Ashley: What else would it be?
Brad: I don't know. You just, uh, seem kind of nervous all of a sudden. Like maybe you're having second thoughts about telling me. Are you?
Neil: Aw, come on. (Knock on door)
Neil: Yeah, it's open.
Neil: Hey, Liv.
Olivia: Well, someone's having some trouble.
Neil: I can't believe this. I just bought these lights, and they're all tangled up. Every year it's the same thing.
Olivia: (Laughs) come on. Give 'em to me. I'll help you.
Neil: Oh, thanks. There you go.
Olivia: You know, this is great... seeing you putting up your tree, getting into the holiday spirit.
Neil: Thanks again for coming down and helping me out.
Olivia: Hey, no problem. I welcome the distraction.
Neil: Why? Something going on?
Olivia: Yeah, something big. You know what? I don't want to think about it. (Doorbell rings)
Wes: What's up, kiddo?
Wes: Where's your mom?
Lily: In the bedroom.
Wes: Can you tell her to come out here?
Wes: Well, I got a surprise.
Lily: For mom or for me?
Wes: For both of you.
Lily: What is it?
Wes: Look, can you stop asking so--
Dru: Hey, did I hear the-- Wesley!
Wes: Well, well.
Dru: Hi. Wasn't expecting you.
Wes: Here I am.
Lily: He has a surprise for us.
Wes: Yeah, yeah. Let's, um... let's sit down.
Dru: Wesley, what are you up to?
Wes: Just humor me, everybody. Sit down. Okay. All right. Now I've been thinkin'.
Wes: I mean, Christmas is coming up, you know.
Wes: Well, I've been racking my brain, trying to figure out what would be the perfect gift for my two beautiful ladies.
Wes: And I couldn't think of anything... until now.
Dru: Uh-oh. Ooh!
Wes: Go ahead. Open it.
Lily: But it isn't Christmas yet.
Wes: Believe me, this one cannot wait.
Dru: Go ahead, honey.
Lily: Airline tickets?
Wes: Look a little closer.
Lily: To Paris?
Lily: Oh, my God! We're gonna spend Christmas in Paris?
Wes: That's right.
Lily: Oh, my God! Thank you, Wes! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I can't believe it!
Wes: You're welcome.
Brad: If we get it taken care of.
Ashley: We will.
Brad: Your mother here?
Colleen: Not yet. Dad, there must be something you can do to help us.
Brad: What "us" are you referring to?
Colleen: J.T. And me.
Brad: No. No, no, no, no, no. Right now there is no J.T. and you.
Brad: Colleen, this is about you and you alone. You are in deep trouble with your mother, not to mention me. In fact, J.T., You go home.
Colleen: If he leaves, I'm going with him.
Brad: You're not going anywhere, young lady.
Colleen: If you make him leave, I will.
Ashley: Honey, you're putting us in a very difficult situation. What do you expect us to do when your mother gets here?
Colleen: I don't know, but I don't want to face her alone.
J.T.: And I don't want her to.
Brad: I really don't think you should talk right now.
Ashley: You know she's going to want to take you right back to their airport.
Colleen: You can't let her do that.
Brad: Colleen, it's her decision. I know you think you're old enough to run your own life, but the fact is you're a minor, and your mother has custody.
Colleen: I'll go back to the juvenile detention center.
Brad: No, you won't.
Colleen: You don't think I'd do it? I will. I'll just say I'm gonna run away again, and they'll keep me there just like last time.
J.T.: Are you listening to this? You can't make her go back there. There's gotta be a way to work this out. (Doorbell rings)
Colleen: That's her.
Brad: All right, listen, you calm down, and do not mouth off to your mother. You got th?? As for you, you keep your mouth shut.
Richards: Ms. Jenkins, I trust you heard the judge's advice. Get yourself a lawyer. And I'm gonna add to that-- do not leave town.
Diane: Don't worry. I have no plans to go anywhere.
Richards: Good. Because I'm gonna go over this evidence very carefully. And if there is any way that I can bring an indictment against you for arson, for perjury, for obstruction of justice, believe me, I will do it.
Diane: Knock yourself out. I did not set that fire.
Richards: Well, we'll see what the evidence says.
Jack: And there's our other hero.
Silva: Oh, I had a lot of help--right over there.
Jack: Yeah, it was quite a team, wasn't it?
John: You know, I think this calls for a celebration.
Jack: You know what, guys? This has been a long, long day, and a very long few months.
John: All right, son. Say no more. We will set that celebration another day.
Paul: Yeah, time is something you have a lot of now.
Jack: Yeah. We got the rest of our lives. Isn't that right, babe?
John: Now listen, you two go on home. I'm gonna run t the office, take care of some unfinished business.
Silva: I'll walk out with you, john.
John: All right, fine.
Jack: Mr. Silva, before you leave, thank you.
Silva: Oh, not a problem. This is one that came out right.
Jack: It sure did, all because of you. You did a remarkable job.
Silva: Oh, thank you. Thank you. It was a pleasure.
John: Good work.
Lynne: No, I'm beat. I'm gonna head home.
Isabella: And you, too.
Paul: No argument from me.
Phyllis: Hey, um, uh... listen. I just want to say thank you, too. I mean, thank God, right? I don't know really how to put this into words, but... but you all saved my life, and, of course, I'll never forget that. That's all.
Paul: You're very welcome.
Lynne: Get some rest.
Paul: See you soon.
Jack: Get out of here. Come on.
Phyllis: What's going on there?
Jack: Oh, I'm sure she's just wondering what went wrong with her perfect plan. Come on, let's get out of here. I got a pillow at home with our name on it.
Phyllis: Give me a minute.
Jack: Honey, don't worry about her.
Phyllis: No, I have to do this, jack. I have to. ç|ógc1sss @ How long will we be in Paris?
Wes: Your whole vacation.
Lily: Two weeks?
Wes: Can you handle that?
Lily: Are you kidding? I can't wait! Mom, isn't this great?
Dru: You know, actually, honey, I would like to--
Lily: I'm going to e-mail all my friends tonight, let them know that we're coming. Or maybe I should surprise them. Can you imagine the looks on their faces? Especially Bridgette. She would totally die.
Lily: Oh, can we spend a few days in the country, like we did last year?
Wes: It's fine with me.
Dru: You know, actually, I was hoping to talk to you alone. You know?
Lily: Mom, please don't say that you have a problem with this. Please. I mean, it'll only be for a couple of weeks. And I-I really miss home. And wouldn't it be fun to see everyone again? Plus, we'd get to spend the holidays in Paris.
Dru: Don't you have a history test tomorrow morning?
Dru: And shouldn't you be studying for that?
Dru: May I have the tickets, please? Thank you.
Lily: Thanks again, Wes. This is the best Christmas gift ever.
Wes: Oh, well... you're welcome.
Wes: I can't wait.
Neil: Okay. And God said... ha ha!
Olivia: Whoo-hoo! So, um... how's work going?
Neil: Fine. I'm still only going in part-time. Victor's got me on a short leash, but that is what we agreed to, so... I can't complain.
Olivia: I'm sure you've already made yourself indispensible.
Neil: Oh, yeah. I'm trying. Hey, did I tell you tonight's our annual office Christmas bash?
Olivia: No, you didn't.
Neil: Kind of blows my mind. I really am back.
Olivia: Yeah. You are. You know, not that you don't deserve to celebrate, but a party like that...
Neil: Oh, don't worry. I'll be careful. I'm not gonna open the doors to those demons again. This light won't work.
Olivia: I trust you, Neil.
Neil: Thanks, Liv.
Olivia: So... what else do you have planned for the holidays?
Neil: I'm hoping to spend as much time as I can with lily. Thanks. Since she won't be in school, I wanna hang out with her. You know, go ice skating, Christmas shopping, maybe even head down to Chicago for a day. Gonna start a new father/daughter tradition.
Neil: Hoping she'll be up for that.
Olivia: Well, that sounds like fun. Plus it'll give you a chance to spend some time with Drucilla.
Traci: Where is she?
Colleen: Here we go. (Door slams)
Traci: You have no idea how much trouble you're in, but you are about to find out. There is a cab waiting outside. Let's go.
Colleen: Mom, I'm--
Traci: Quiet! I do not want to hear another word out of you!
Brad: Traci, wait. I'd like to talk to you alone for a minute.
Traci: Brad, I am done talking. And you, I am going to have you put in jail for this.
Colleen: Don't you dare. If you do, I'll run away again. I swear I will!
Traci: Stop it right now!
Brad: Everyone, everyone, let's calm down. Traci, we need to talk.
Traci: I told you, I am--
Brad: And I am telling you we need to talk. Ash, watch colleen. Traci, upstairs. Now.
Phyllis: Almost worked out for you, didn't it?
Diane: I don't know what you're talking about. You're lucky. Paul Williams got you off the hook with that bogus video.
Phyllis: Bogus video?
Diane: It had to be, Phyllis. We both know that you started that fire.
Phyllis: You're kidding me. You're kidding me, aren't you? Are you gonna pretend like none of this just happened? You're absolutely insane. You're crazy.
Diane: Say what you want, but I know the truth. Jack loves me. He wanted us to be a family as much as I did. He was glad to be getting rid of you. He told me--
Phyllis: Yeah, he told you a lot of things, sweetie. He was using you. And he did an excellent job, didn't he?
Diane: Oh, he most certainly did. I can still feel his hands all over me... his lips on mine.
Diane: (Grunts) (yelps) (gasps)
Traci: All right, whatever you've got to say, you had better say it fast.
Brad: I know you're angry.
Traci: Ohh! I am so far beyond angry. This has got to stop.
Brad: I agree.
Traci: And what is-- J.T., What is he thinking? Kidnapping my daughter.
Brad: Traci, I wouldn't exactly call it kidnapping.
Traci: Oh, really? You wouldn't? Shows up at the airport and steals her away. He probably followed us there. And he probably waited for her to be alone--
Brad: Traci, you need to calm down so we can talk about this.
Traci: We have been talking about this--
Brad: I'm not finished
Traci: All right. Go ahead. Brad: I know you don't want to hear this, but colleen is not going to cooperate. She will not willingly get on that plane and go back to new York with you. Now you may not like it, and you may not accept it, but that is the reality. The question is--do you want to see her back at that juvenile detention center?
Traci: No, of course not!
Brad: Well, that's where she's heading if we don't get creative.
Traci: What is your point?
Brad: The more I think about it, the more strongly I feel that forcing her back to new York and enrolling her at that boarding school is a bad idea. A very bad idea.
Jack: Phyllis, honey, let's go.
Phyllis: Don't worry, I'm not going to dirty my hands on this piece of filth. You have no idea how much that man hates you, do you? It sickened him to touch you. But he did it for me, to save me. He made that sacrifice for me. And you know what he did afterward? He went and took a shower until all the hot water ran out to get clean of you.
Diane: Really? Is that what he told you?
Phyllis: You have no idea that this was a plan, do you? We duped you, sweetie!
Surprise! We decided that he would cuddle up to you so you would give him information. It worked! You stupid, deluded moron! You helped us bring you down.
Diane: I'm not down. I told you, I'm fine. And now if you're finished, Phyllis, I'm going home to Kyle. You remember Kyle? Mine and jack's son?
Phyllis: Oh, yes, I do remember Kyle. That adorable little boy that you use. Your ace in the hole, isn't he? I wouldn't be surprised, after this whole fiasco, if jack got full custody of Kyle, Diane.
Diane: Dream on.
Phyllis: Oh, you dream on. You're gonna rot in jail, you bitch.
Diane: Oh, you really think so?
Phyllis: Yeah, I think so. I think so. Did you see the D.A.'S face? Did you see, after he realized you framed me? Did you see what he did? He ran out of here. He's going to get information on you. Those guys don't like being toyed with, Diane. They're going to make sure you go down.
Diane: Phyllis, just get out of my face.
Phyllis: There's nothing I would like better-- to get out of your face.
Jack: Phyllis, honey, let's go.
Phyllis: I'm coming, I'm coming honey. You know, I'd love to stay and chat, but, you see, I have to go home and make love to my husband. Yeah. And I'm gonna make love to him again and again and again. Until the stench of you wears off. Which, actually, won't take long. And then I can face my future with a clear conscience and my loving husband by my side. Two things you'll never have.
Phyllis: Oh, Diane, you know, by the way, um... that orange jumpsuit is gonna look so cute on you.
Phyllis: Let's go.
Neil: You know, Liv, I'm sure I will see Dru over the holidays.
Olivia: Has she given you an answer yet?
Neil: You mean, about her and lily moving in here? No, not yet. I'm hoping to talk up the idea over the next few days, maybe even get them to move in before lily goes back to school after the break.
Olivia: Oh. So that's why you're doing all this decorating, huh? Hoping you'll get the place ready in time for them to be here?
Neil: I gotta admit, I'm pretty optimistic. I really wanna do this-- for lily. You know, give her a sense of family? Especially this time of year.
Olivia: You're a good father, Neil.
Neil: Gotta admit, my motives are a little selfish.
Olivia: There's nothing selfish about a father wanting to spend time with his daughter.
Neil: It's not just that. I don't want to be alone these next few days.
Olivia: Well, no one likes being alone over the holidays.
Neil: Yeah, especially a guy with a drinking problem.
Wes: Baby, what are you getting so upset about?
Dru: Am I upset? I mean, why the hell didn't you clear this with me first?
Wes: Okay, maybe I should have talked with you beforehand.
Dru: You sure the hell should've.
Wes: But that would have ruined the surprise. Besides, what? What? What are you telling me, you don't want to spend the holidays in Paris?
Dru: Of course I would love to go to Paris, but now is not the opportune time for lily to go there.
Wes: For lily? What are you talking about? When was the last time you saw her light up like that?
Dru: Case in point, we're supposed to be weaning her off of Paris. We're supposed to be convincing her that Genoa city is not this awful place.
Wes: The girl knows we're only going for a visit.
Dru: Okay, what happens after the two fabulous weeks in gay Paris? How we supposed to get her back here? It's gonna be like pulling teeth, just like last summer.
Wes: Not at all. Dru, it would be good for lily to be in a place where she has some friends, a place where she feels a little more comfortable, where she's actually happy.
Dru: Which was beginning to happen, Wes. We were turning the corner on that. Yes, she understood that she had a routine at school. She knew that she had friends. She was beginning to see that this was her future, her home.
Wes: And a trip to Paris would help her appreciate Genoa city even more.
Dru: Where the hell did that come from?
Wes: Look, look. Right now Paris is this idealized vision in lily's head. Now a trip there, that can be laid to rest with exposure. Okay, otherwise it just remains this figment of her imagination, this perfect utopia Genoa city could never compete with.
Dru: Are you finished? You know what I'm hearing?
Dru: I'm hearing a lot of psychiatric mumbo jumbo.
Phyllis: Look at this.
Jack: You're home.
Phyllis: I'm home. I think that's the most beautiful word in the English language.
Jack: Yeah, there are some other beautiful words, too, like "free."
Phyllis: Free. Free. That's another good one. I'm free.
Jack: You seem kinda quiet.
Phyllis: I have no words.
Jack: Well, there's a first.
Phyllis: I can't stop crying.
Jack: I know. Honey, you've just been through the fires of hell.
Phyllis: I know, right? So I should be screaming from the rooftops and jumping for joy.
Jack: That will all come with time.
Phyllis: This is real, okay? Right? I'm not dreaming? Tell me I'm not dreaming.
Jack: You're not dreaming. You're not dreaming.
Phyllis: I had some horrible thoughts.
Jack: I know. I know.
Phyllis: You don't know. You can't begin to know. I don't deserve you. I certainly don't deserve to be here.
Jack: You stop that. You stop that right now.
Phyllis: Jack, I can't help it. I was sitting in a cell day in and day out. You have no idea... oh, my God, I had horrible, awful thoughts.
Jack: This is the last thing in the world you should be thinking about.
Phyllis: I don't agree. Maybe I was there for a reason, you know? Maybe... maybe I was there because I've done so many horrible things.
Jack: Maybe... maybe--even if that were true, don't you think you've paid your debt by now?
Phyllis: You're so incredible even though you had doubts at first, you never abandoned me. You stood beside me. You never walked away. You kept on believing in me.
Jack: It's called love.
Phyllis: It's a lot more than love.
Jack: What is it with you? This is your moment. You should be ecstatic right now.
Phyllis: I know. I should be ecstatic. I can't get rid of that feeling in my stomach. I can't get rid of it-- that my life is over. I sat with it for so long, jack. I sat with it for so long that I don't think I can get past it.
Colleen: Is the cab still out there?
J.T.: Nah, I guess he got tired of waiting.
Colleen: I'm really sorry about all this, getting you and dad involved. It's just we felt like we had nowhere else to go.
Ashley: Well, for the record, I don't agree with what you did. But I'm awfully glad that y d decided to come here and not someplace else.
Colleen: I wonder what they're talking about up there.
Ashley: I guess we're gonna find out soon enough.
Colleen: That's what I'm afraid of.
Ashley: Can I give you some advice?
Ashley: As you get older, you find yourself out in the world, if your problems with people like teachers or bosses or your parents, anybody who has power over you, you have to try to be smart.
Colleen: Smart, how?
Ashley: Well, trying to get tough. And do whatever you please, regardless of the consequences, in the end isn't really going to get you what you want. I mean, granted, it might with some parents, you know? But you don't want those kind of parents. Not the kind that back down, you run wild.
Colleen: How am I supposed to be smart when that means never seeing J.T.? I love him, Ashley.
Brad: I've checked into this boarding school you've picked out for colleen. You know wt kind of kids go there, Traci? Troubled teens.
Traci: And you don't think that describes our daughter?
Brad: I'm talking real trouble. Sure, colleen has some issues she needs to work through, but she's in a much better place than she was when she first came here.
Traci: Why? Because she's not doing drugs anymore?
Brad: Oh, come on, Traci, it's more than that. She's thriving here. She's making friends. She's getting good grades. And you go and force her into some boarding school, where she's surrounded by kids with far worse problems... don't you see how this can backfire?
Traci: I cannot believe you're saying this! She lies to us regularly! She's' run away more than once! Brad, she is out of our control!
Brad: Maybe that's the problem.
Traci: What is that supposed to mean?
Brad: We're making this about control. But what we should be doing is helping her through the minefield of growing up, giving her the tools to make better choices, creating trust. That's not going to happen if we ship her off to a bunch of strangers.
Traci: Go ahead. Just say it.
Traci: You think I'm a terrible mother.
Brad: No, I don't think that.
Traci: That's what you're suggesting. I'm trying to ship her off! Let her be somebody else's problem!
Brad: Traci, I know how much you love colleen. I know how hard you've worked to get through to her. Traci, if anyone has dropped the ball here as a parent, it's me. I haven't been there for her. That's why I want another chance.
Traci: Another chance. What are you suggesting, brad?
Brad: Please, let her stay in Genoa city.
Traci: Where? Living with her grandfather simply didn't work out.
Brad: I know that. I want her to stay here, with ash and me.
Wes: You know, I am getting so tired of you using my profession as an excuse to disregard what I think.
Dru: And I want to know the real reason why you want to go on this trip so badly.
Wes: Well, you seem to know. Why don't you tell me?
Dru: I think you want to be the hero in lily's life.
Wes: Oh, Drucilla, please.
Dru: Yes, why else would you be so gung-ho about going to Paris? Paris. Paris.
Wes: Do you even listen? I just told you.
Dru: And I just told you it doesn't make one iota of sense taking that girl to Paris right now, not when she's making all this progress. No way. Maybe later.
Wes: Oh, okay. So you think Neil's approach is working? Just take lily, throw her into a new school and tell her get over it. What, you really think that's the way to go?
Dru: Yes, I do, right now. Mm-hmm. Why are you looking at me like that, Wes?
Wes: Because I think I've got this one figured out.
Dru: What are you talking about?
Wes: I'm talking about the real reason you're so against this vacation.
Dru: And what reason would that be?
Wes: Well, does it have anything at all to do with Neil?
Olivia: You're afraid you'll be tempted to take a drink?
Neil: They say the first holiday season's the toughest.
Olivia: Yeah, but you're not going to be alone.
Neil: Probably not. Drucilla and lily are in town. I'm hoping to spend some quality time with both of them.
Olivia: What about Wesley?
Neil: What about Wesley?
Olivia: Come on, he's gonna want to spend some time with Drucilla over the holidays.
Neil: Hey, that's another reason I asked you to come over here, okay? See, I have this idea and I'm hoping you can help me out with it.
Olivia: What is it?
Neil: All right, now it wouldn't hurt my cause any with Drucilla and lily if good ol' dr. Wes, let's say, had a distraction of his own this Christmas-- somebody who could occupy his attention. Free up lily and Dru's time for me.
Olivia: By somebody, you wouldn't be referring to me?
Neil: Well, yeah... I was kind of hoping that you could keep him busy. What do you say?
Jack: Hey. Hey, come here. Sit down. Sit down.
Jack: Look at me. Look at me. Your life is anything but over.
Phyllis: Thanks to john. Right? And Paul. And, most of all, you-- my friend, my lover, my savior. You saved my life. Your confidence and your faith in me. I owe you my life.
Jack: You said with everything you've been through, you've learned something. I learned something, too.
Phyllis: What's that?
Jack: You're my life, Phyllis. Without you, I'm nothing. Without you, I have nothing. Always remember that. You're everything to me.
Phyllis: Okay, it's real.
Phyllis: I'm free. I can see. I'm free, right?
Jack: It's real. It's real. You're free.
We're free. We can start the rest of our lives together.
Phyllis: Can we start now?
Phyllis: Start now. Start our life now. I love you.
Jack: I love you.
Phyllis: Start now.
Jack: I love you.
