Y&R Transcript Thursday 12/19/02--Canada; Friday 12/20/02--USA
Dru: Liv, don't you think we're overdoing it?
Olivia: The man's not answering his phone.
Olivia: He's not answering the bell. If there's any chance that he might be drinking, we need to know.
Dru: All right.
Olivia: Okay. Neil?
Olivia: I'll check the bedroom.
Dru: All right.
Olivia: Neil? He's not there.
Dru: I think we're overreacting. He's probably out christmas shopping, buying me something fabulous, I hope. Liv, come on, lighten up. Do you really think he's drinking again?
Olivia: I didn't say that.
Dru: You don't have to. I can see you're worried about him.
Olivia: Whose fault would that be?
Dru: No, don't pin this on me just because I'm taking lily to paris for christmas.
Olivia: He was counting on spending time with the two of you.
Dru: Plans change, liv. You gotta roll with the punches. You gotta be flexible. Besides, I know the stuff that neil's made out of, and he will get through this holiday season.
Olivia: Yeah, well, wouldn't be too sure about that. Hmm?
Santa claus: Ho, ho, ho. Merry christmas to you.
Santa claus: Merry christmas. And who we got here?
Sharon: You sure you're okay, sweetie?
Cassie: Sure, mom.
Nikki: Nicholas, are you enjoying yourself?
Nick: Yeah, it's a great party.
Nikki: How about your father?
Nick: What about him?
Nikki: How's he holding up?
Nick: I'd say good, considering...
Nikki: Yeah, your sister's a no-show so far. He has been waiting for her so patiently.
Nick: The night's young. Vicki could still surprise us.
Nikki: Do you really believe that?
Nick: Sharon and I made it, didn't we?
Nikki: I know your father would never admit it, but he would be devastated if she doesn't make an appearance.
Nick: If dad's hurting, he sure isn't showing it.
Nikki: Which is why I may have no choice but to take matters into my own hands.
Nick: Good luck.
Diego: I never thought I'd be so glad to see this place.
Victoria: Well, it's temporary, but it's home.
Diego: Our home.
Victoria: I'm sorry. I meant to get a tree to put us in the christmas spirit.
Diego: Walking out of that place with you on my arm--that's all the good cheer I need. So what did you decide?
Victoria: About what?
Diego: Don't do that. You know.
Victoria: The newman christmas party, right.
Diego: Well, you gotta admit the two of us walking in together, blowing them away, not a very good idea.
Victoria: Yeah, probably not.
Diego: That doesn't mean you can't go by yourself.
Victoria: Diego, I'm not going to that party without you. My family is gon h have to realize that we're together now and until then...
Diego: What? Are you gonna turn your back on them? Look, I know you don't want to do this, but I know how much your family means to you. Promise me you'll try-- you'll do whatever it takes to make things right again, especially with your dad.
Brittany: Now that's what I like to see. My man on the floor, gettin' all buff for me. Raul: I'm just trying to keep from freezing.
Brittany: Well, turn the heat up.
Raul: Costs money, babe.
Brittany: I can think of another way to keep us warm.
Raul: Yeah, and make us late for the shelter.
Brittany: Oh, great.
Raul: Where have you been?
Brittany: At the coffeehouse. I ran into J.T.
Raul: I'm sorry to hear that.
Brittany: You won't believe the mess he's gotten himself into. On second thought, never mind.
Raul: What, no talk of J.T.? It's fine by me. I'll consider it an early christmas present. All right, I'm gonna get my coat so we can take off.
Brittany: Raul, you don't have to come with me.
Raul: I want to.
Brittany: Of course you do. Helping the homeless is right up your alley.
Raul: What's the matter, britt? Not feeling very charitable today?
Brittany: You're gonna think I'm a terrible person. But some of my friends are home from school. I haven't seen them in a couple of months, and there's some killer parties.
Raul: And you're stuck feeding the masses.
Brittany: You do think I'm terrible, don't you?
Olivia: This isn't good, not at all.
Dru: What the hell is neil doing with a bottle of hard liquor in his apartment?
Olivia: I'm afraid to ask.
Dru: You know what? Let's not jump to conclusions. This does not mean that he's drinking again.
Olivia: It's half empty.
Dru: All right, so he had a sip. Okay, so he's having some problems. I don't know.
Olivia: It's because of you. Because of you taking lily and traipsing off to paris.
Dru: There's only one way to find out if he's drinking, right? We gotta ask him.
Olivia: You know what I just realized? He's probably at the newman christmas party at the lodge.
Dru: Plenty of booze there. I'll get the tree.
Olivia: Let's go.
Mac: For more than a weekend, you mean?
Katherine: I can't tell you how much I've missed you.
Mac: I missed you, too, grandma.
Katherine: Oh, yes.
Esther: I'm ready, mrs. C.
Katherine: Esther, what in heaven's name are you doing with those bags?
Esther: I'm bringing healthy snacks for the people at the homeless shelter.
Katherine: God, you just won't give up, will you?
Mac: Hey, larry.
Larry: Well, look who's back from college. How you doin', mac?
Mac: Good. You?
Larry: I'm hanging in there. Thanks. Anyway, I don't want to interrupt anything.
Katherine: Larry, larry, we were going down to the homeless shelter to help serve the holiday meals, so why don't you join us?
Larry: That sounds like a family deal. I don't want to get in the way.
Mac: They can use allthe help they can get. Besides, we're all family here. Come on, larry, what do you say?
Brittany: It's not that I have anything against the homeless shelter. I mean, those people deserve to have a nice meal over the holidays, too.
Raul: You would just rather not have to serve it up tonight.
Brittany: The past few weeks have been such a grind. I mean, between doing my community service and dealing with my parents and fighting with our stupid landlord, it just feels like I haven't been having any fun at all. I'm sorry. I didn't mean...
Raul: That's okay, babe. I understand. This has been a major adjustment for you, which is why I think you should go to some of these parties tonight.
Brittany: Really? You do?
Raul: Sure. I can pitch in for you at the shelter.
Brittany: Oh, my God. You're the best, you know that?
Raul: Yeah, that's what you keep saying.
Brittany: No, I mean it. Really, raul, I am so lucky to have you. I'd better go call ned, tell him something came up.
Brittany: No. I can't do that. He'd never buy it. He's way too strict. Anyway... he's counting on me.
Brittany: What's that smile about?
Raul: I'm proud of you. You have a bigger heart than you'd like to admit.
Brittany: Shows what a good influence you've been on me.
Raul: Come on. Let's go.
Nick: Excuse me.
Nikki: Hi, sweetie. Have you eaten?
Cassie: You know, I'm not hungry. I'm gonna go check up on noah.
Victor: Sorry that your family can't be here.
Man: Enjoy your party.
Victor: Hopefully next year. Thank you.
Nick: Nice party, dad.
Victor: Thanks, son. Thank you for convincing sharon to come by.
Nick: You didn't give me much choice. You kind of made me do it.
Victor: I appreciate it nevertheless.
Nick: Unlike victoria?
Victor: Unlike victoria.
Nick: Thank you.
Waiter: Champagne, sir?
Neil: No, thanks. But I will take a club soda when you get the chance. Thanks.
Neil: Hey, victor.
Victor: Neil. So nice to see you. Ththank you. Hey, welcome.
Neil: Thanks. Well, this is the annual christmas management party. I wouldn't miss it for the world.
Victor: Well, that's very nice of you to say. Where's your daughter? I thought she would be joining you.
Neil: Yeah, I did, too. She's getting ready to take a trip. Drucilla'sakaking her to paris.
Victor: To paris? For a young girl, that's wonderful.
Victor: You're not too thrilled about it?
Neil: Well, I was looking forward to spending a little time with her this christmas. That's all.
Victor: I know. I know what you're talking about. Christmas for a dad without his children--tough.
Victor: If you feel like joining us at the ranch, you're more than welcome, all right?
Neil: Thanks. I do appreciate that, but you know, I have an awful lot of workthat I can catch up on, so...
Victor: I have a feeling I know what your problem is. The holidays are tough for you, aren't they?
Neil: They are. As a matter of fact, I know that I just got here, but there's someone I really need to see.
Victor: Do it. Nice to see you. And remember what I said.
Neil: Good to see you, too.
Victor: Come around any time.
Neil: I will, and a very merry christmas to you and your family.
Victor: Where's victoria now? Where's my daughter?
Victoria: I'll hang that up. Don't start. I'm not going.
Diego: Did I say anything?
Victoria: You don't have to. I can read your mind. You want me to cut my dad some slack.
Diego: Hey, if that's the way you're feeling.
Victoria: No, look, diego, I'm not trying to punish my father.
Diego: You sure about that?
Victoria: Look, I can't just go to this party and paste a smile on my face and pretend like everything's fine and dandy. I can't do it.
Diego: Okay, okay. If we can't be with your family, we can always hang with mine.
Victoria: What are you talking about?
Diego: Dinner with my folks. You know what? I'm sure they're free. I'll ring 'em up.
Victoria: Honey, you're tired. You just got out of the hospital.
Diego: Come on, victoria. You know what? It'll be good for you. Besides, it's about time my parents get to know the woman I love. (Cell phone rings)
Diego: Saved by the bell.
Victoria: Yeah. (Ring)
Nikki: Victoria, it's mother.
Victoria: Look, mom, I can't talk right now. Diego and I just got back from the hospital.
Nikki: Okay, well, then I'll get right to the point. I would really like you to reconsider coming to the newman christmas party.
Victoria: Mom... alon
Nikki: Yes, victoria, you must realize what you're doing.
Victoria: I can't do it. I'm sorry.
Nikki: Your father is trying to be so strong, but I can see how much he's hurting, hoping you're gonna show up.
Victoria: Look, mom, diego and I have other plans. We're having dinner with his family tonight, and unlike dad, they don't have a problem with us.
Mac: Come on, larry, say you'll join us.
Kay: Please, there's nothing more wonderful than helping those who are less fortunate over the holidays.
E esther: Besides, they need a santa claus for all the kids.
Larry: Me? Santa claus?
Kay: Of course, you would be-- you would be perfect. Perfect!
Larry: More like the grinch, maybe.
Larry: What the heck? Might as well, maybe a pretty girl will sit on my lap or something.
Esther: Oh, my.
Kay: All right, now listen. The three of you go ahead, and I'll be along in just a moment.
Mac: We could wait, grandma.
Kay: Darling, no, no. I have something to take of first, please. Go. Go.
Esther: Thanks, larry.
Larry: My pleasure.
Kay: Robert, give me a few minutes, then bring the car around. Yes, thank you.
Jill: Oh, you're still here? I heard the door slam. Thought the riffraff had left.
Kay: Actually, I stayed for the moment, for a reason. And you're it.
Serena: You on the wagon?
Neil: Let's just yy I know that liquor doesn't help.
Neil: What are you laughing at?
Serena: You know, it cracks me up every time I hear people talk like that. Like anyone's ever thought liquor could help. People drink for two reasons-- numb the pain, or to forget. I'm guessing you're one who'd drink to forget.
Rob: Hey, winters, that you?
Rob: Almost didn't recognize you.
Neil: How's it shaking, rob?
Rob: Merry, merry. You know the drill, man.
Neil: I'm looking for serena, actually.
Rob: Well, then, you're looking in the wrong place, pal. Took off weeks ago.
Neil: I figured as much. I thought I'd give it a shot anyway.
Rob: So, man, you look like you could use a friend. Tell you what. It's almost christmas. Buy you a drink.
Neil: No, thanks.
Rob: Ah, come on. One shot, on the house. I'll even dig up the good stuff.
Dru: I don't see him anywhere. Thank you.
Olivia: I felt for sure he'd be here.
Victor: Olivia. Drucilla.
Victor: Nice to see you both.
Olivia: We are so sorry. We don't mean to intrude on your party.
Victor: You're not intruding at all.
Dru: We're looking for neil.
Victor: Oh, he left a little while ago.
Dru: He left?
Victor: Yes. Is there a problem?
Olivia: We're not sure.
Victor: Does this, by chance, have anything to do with his daughter?
Dru: Lily--why do you ask?
Victor: He told me that you were planning to leave with her for paris.
Olivia: How did he seem to be dealing with that?
Victor: Well, he was rather upset about that, I think.
Waiter: Excuse me, mr. Newman.
Waiter: You have a phone call, sir.
Vtotor: Thank you. I'm sorry.
Dru: Sure, sure. Take care.
Victor: Hope you find him.
Dru: Don't even start. You think he's back at the apartment? Damn, I knew I should have thrown out that bottle of booze.
Olivia: If the man wants a drink, he'll find one.
Dru: You think he's hitting the bars?
Olivia: I have an idea, and I hope to hell I'm wrong. Come on.
Jill: Save your breath, katherine. I'm not in the mood.
Kay: Well, I've been concerned because you've been so abnormally quiet lately.
Jill: Well, you should be grateful.
Kay: Yes, I guess I should, shouldn't I? But I don't know. It's very disturbing not having you shriek at me all day long. You hardly ever go out. It's the height of the social season.
Jill: Oh, excuse me. I didn't realize I was committing a crime.
Kay: Is it impossible for the two of us to ever, ever, ever have a civil conversation?
Jill: Forgive me, old woman, for not divulging my innermost secrets to you. I mean, you have been so comforting and supportive of me in the past.
Kay: Oh, jill, come on. Admit it.
Jill: Admit what? That you drive me crazy?
Kay: No. Larry warton drives you crazy.
Jill: What are you talking about?
Kay: You are pining away for that man. You miss him so much you can hardly stand it.
Jill: Oh, my God!
Rob: Nice threads, man.
Rob: Must be back in the saddle.
Neil: Yea yeah, I'm working on it.
Rob: Ain't we all. So what's got you down?
Neil: Eh, you know. There's another lady.
Rob: Yeah, there always is, huh?
Neil: Mm-hmm. Yeah, I was hoping that we could get together.
Rob: And now she's jerking you around.
Neil: Yeah. I thought we were gonna spend the holidays together.
Rob: Change of plans?
Neil: She's going to france.
Rob: France? Hmm.
C'est la vie. Well, pal, for what it's worth, I, uh... I hear ya. Holidays ain't exactly my favorite time of year either. Matter of fact, I'd just as soon fast-forward through the olole damn thing. Yeah, think I'll join ya.
Rob: Better year ahead, buddy. Hey, come on, winters. What are you waitin' for?
Dru: Neil! Don't! (Door slams)
Noah: See you later, guys.
Woman #1: Your children are beautiful, sharon.
Sharon: Oh, thank you.
Woman #2: I bet they're excited about christmas. I'M... I'm sorry. I completely forgot about...
Sharon: That nick and i have separated.
Woman #1: I know what you're going through. When my first husband and i divorced, it was hell on the kids.
Nick: Excuse me, ladies. Sharon, can I talk to you for a second?
Sharon: Yeah. What? What is it, nick?
Nick: Oh, no. I just thought you might need rescuing.
Sharon: Oh. Well, thank you for rescuing me.
Diego: Gina, this is incredible.
Gina: Well, you called and said you wanted something special. I can't wait for you to see the menu. I just hope you approve.
Adela: I'm sure it will be delicious.
Vicente: I'm getting homesick already.
Gina: I was able to throw together the decorations at the last minute.
Diego: Oh, my goodness. They're perfect.
Gina: Fortunately, the colors of the cuban flag are red, white and blue.
Victoria: Ah, so leftover 4th of july streamers.
Gina: You've got it. See? Our countries have more in common than most people think. So why don't we get this party started? Cocktails for everyone--
Gina: Sí. I have a very special bottle of crme de cacao waiting.
Victoria: Is this a cuban drink?
Adela: Oh, you will not be disappointed, victoria, I assure you.
Gina: So... doncellitas for four, coming right up.
Vicente: Son, what a wonderful surprise.
Adela: Only wish raul could have joined us.
Diego: He's busy helping at the homeless shelter.
Adela: Mmm. With brittany?
Diego: So on the way over here I was telling victoria how we celebrate the holidays back home.
Vicente: We always celebrate mass on christmas. That is one tradition.
Victoria: Do you exchange gifts?
Adela: Oh, yes, but not on christmas day.
Vicente: January 6th. Because of the 12 days of christmas.
Victoria: Oh, right. You know, that's a smart tradition. It gives you two extra weeks to shop.
Diego: Here, try some of the cuban bread.
Victoria: Thank you.
Adela: Oh, thank you.
Jill: It's finally happened, katherine. You've completely lost your mind.
Kay: Jill, jill, jill. It is nothing to be ashamed of.
Jill: I am not pining over larry warton.
Kay: Well, then why else would you be moping around this house like some lovesick schoolgirl? Come on.
Jill: Shouldn't you be at the shelter making sure that esther doesn't poison those poor people?
Kay: Actually, I was thinking that would be a good job for you. (Chuckles)
Jill: For me?
Kay: Come on. Join us, jill. Please.
Jill: I have plans.
Kay: You have plans? Alone in your room, all by yourself? Oh, come on. Try doing soththing good for a change. You will be surprised how wonderful it can make you feel.
Jill: How altruistic of you.
Kay: Is that your way of saying yes? Hmm?
Jill: Only to shut you up.
Kay: That's the spirit! Come on. Get your coat. Robert's waiting.
Jill: Don't ever hit me again.
Kay: That's the christmas spirit. Uh, robert?
Dru: Neil winters, what the hell are you doing here?
Rob: Hey, merry christmas, pal.
Dru: What the hell are you doing in this crackhouse dive, belly up to the bar, knockin' back booze like there's no tomorrow?
Olivia: Okay, dru--
Dru: No, it's not okay! Now I told our daughter that you had cleaned up your act. Only one small problem-- you're drowning your sorrows back in booze again.
Olivi : Okay. You're probably upset. I know you don't wanna be alone on the holidays--
Dru: Would you stop enabling him? Nothing justifies you turning to whisky again, brotha.
Neil: It's scotch, actually.
Dru: Alcohol all the same. You think it's funny. Don't you? You think it's funny that she and I have been walking all over this town--
Neil: Okay. All right. Drucilla. Drucilla!
Dru: ...And you're drinking yourself into oblivion!
Neil: That's enough! Okay? First of all, I didn't have a drink, not a single drop.
Dru: Then I must be hallucinating, 'cause I see a shot there.
Neil: The bartender poured that for me for the holidays. I didn't touch it. I'm not going to.
Olivia: What are you doing here anyway?
Dru: Must be for the scenery.
Neil: I was looking for serena.
Dru: Serena? That lowlife hoochie you were hangin' around?
Neil: Hey, hey, hey, hey. She's not lowlife, and she's not a hoochie. She's a good person. And what does it matter to you, anyway? Shouldn't you be at home, getting ready to go to gay paris with that little boy wesley? Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go home... unless you think I am too drunk to drive. Excuse me.
Diego: Go ahead.
Vicente: Well, victoria, what do you think of the doncellita?
Victoria: Oh, it's delicious. Yum!
Diego: See, pop? I told you she was a smart gal.
Vicente: Hijo, remember your uncle estéban?
Diego: Oh, how could I forget?
Vicente: Well, he sent your mother and me a care package the other day.
Diego: Oh, let me guess--
pan cubano, yuca con mojo--
Victoria: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Translation, please?
Adela: Cuban bread, yucca with garlic, roasted pork, oh, fried plantains...
Victoria & adela: Mmm.
Vicente: I wish he would have sent such a feast.
Adela: Oh, vicente. No, he finally finished the photo album.
Diego: Oh, the one he's been working on for years?
Diego: Uncle estéban easily gets distracted.
Vicente: We brought it with us, in case you want to show victoria.
Diego: That's nice of you, pop, but I doubt victoria wants to look at--
Victoria: Oh, no, no, no. I'd love to see it. I'd love to see it.
Vicente: Victoria, here is our family.
Victoria: Oh, my gosh.
Diego: Uncle estéban had to put his picture on the first page.
Victoria: Wow, look at all these old pictures.
Diego: God, mom.
Mac: Come on, they're waiting for santa.
Mac: Hey, kids, look who's here.
Larry as santa: Hello, everybody. I mean, ahem, ho ho ho! Santa claus wishes you dudes and dudesette a merry christmas. (Children laugh)
Larry: Whoo! It's cold out there. Merry christmas.
Jill: I don't know if this was such a good idea.
Kay: Oh, just stop it. It's going to be wonderful.
Raul: Merry christmas. How are you?
Man: Wow. Thanks.
Raul: Would you like peas?
Brittany: Oh, I'm-- I'm sorry about that.
Woman: It's okay, child.
Ned: You think you can take over here, raul?
Ned: Brittany, I'm gonna have you help out in the kitchen.
Raul: Here you go.
Jill: Would you like some hot coffee?
Man #2: Please. Ahh. Sure feels good on a cold night like this.
>>Ill: Guess I can only imagine.
Man #2: Your name's not violet, by any chance?
Jill: Uh, no, it's jill.
Man #2: You're the spittin' image of my wife.
Jill: Really? Is she here with you?
Man #2: Oh, no. She died years ago.
Jill: Oh. I'm so sorry.
Man #2: But she was a beauty... just like you.
Jill: Thank you.
Jill: Would you like some coffee?
Larry: Hello there, little pumpkin. How you doing?
Larry: Would you like a present from santa?
Girl: Thank you.
Larry: You're welcome. Would you mind doing me a favor?

Jill: What a nice gesture.
Kay: Oh, that's you, jill, inspiring warmth and goodwill.
Jill: Can't you give it a rest for one evening, you old toad?
Kay: Ohh. The least you could do is go over and thank the jolly, old fella.
Jill: Oh, for heaven's sake.
Esther: Mrs. C, mrs. C!
Esther: Would you come help the kids put ornaments on the tree?

Vicente: Una familia grande.
Gina: Empanadas for everyone. I hope you love them.
Adela: Oh, gi,, thank you so much. They look wonderful.
Victoria: Excuse me.
Diego: I'll be right back. Victoria. Look, I didn't know my family was gonna lay that photo albumon you.
Victoria: Don't apologize.
Diego: You're obviously upset.
Victoria: Do you have any idea how amazing you are?
Diego: You're not mad?
Victoria: No. I mean, why? For opening your family up to me? I mean--
Diego: Well, I just figured with everything going on with your father...
Victoria: I love you.
Diego: I love you, too. But I know you can't help wondering about your father, and what's going down over there.
Victoria: Well, one thing's for sure. They're not kicking back
doncellitas and having as wonderful an evening as I am.
Santa claus: Merry christmas to you, sarah. And merry christmas to you there, dakota.
Dakota: Thanks, santa.
Sarah: Thanks, santa.
Santa claus: You're welcome. Young man, you haven't told me what you want for christmas.
Santa claus: Come now. A fine boy such as yourself? There must be something you'd like.
Noah: I want my daddy to come home.
Santa claus: Ohh. We'll have to work on that and see what we can do, okay?
Victor: Hi. Good evening. Nice to see you.
Man: Nice to see you.
Victor: Nice to see you. Things going well?
Man: Things are great.
Victor: I'm glad you could come.
Man: Thank you.
Victor: Have a good time.
Victor: Hi, sweetheart. You decided to come after all. Oh, I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
Nikki: You thought that was victoria, didn't you?
Victor: Yes. Looked just like her from the back.
Victor: Do you think she'll still show up? I think so.
Nikki: Darling, I'm afraid not.
Nikki: Well, I talked to her on the phone a little while ago, and, um... she has plans.
Victor: What plans?
Nikki: (Sighs) she's spending the evening with diego and his family. It just doesn't look like she's going to bend on thi I think if there's any hope for the two of you to reconcile, you may have to be the one to compromise.
Victor: You know I can't do that. I can't do that.
Victor: I think I've lost my daughter for good.
