Y&R Transcript Tuesday 1/28/03--Canada; Wednesday 1/29/03--USA
Victor: Coffee smells good.
Nike to call the doctor?
Victor: No, no, I don't want to see a doctor right now.
Nikki: I don't know why you have to be so stubborn. A head injury should not be taken lightly. You should have gone to the hospital last night.
Victor: It would have been a waste of time.
Nikki: You know, you really do need to have your head thoroughly examined.
Victor: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Nikki: You know what it means. This little scheme of yours was insane, luring two violent criminals out here, setting a trap for them?
Victor: Because of me, those two violent criminals are behind bars right now.
Nikki: Yeah, and in the process of doing that, you could have been killed.
Victor: It worked out.
Nikki: What if something had gone wrong? I cannot, for the life of me, fathom what you were thinking.
Sharon: I want it done today. Yes, I'm sure. Just send it by messenger. Do you have the address? Okay, thank you. (Knock on door)
Kay: I stop by at a bad time?
Sharon: No, no, not at all. Come on in.
Kay: Thank you. It's freezing out th oh, well, I was just wondering how things were going.
Sharon: By things, you mean my strategy to win nick back?
Kay: Well, you know, any new developments.
Sharon: Actually, there have been. I threw in the towel.
Sharon: Because it didn't work, katherine. In fact, it totally backfired.
Neil: Hey, nick.
Nick: Good morning, neil.
Neil: Hey, tending the store, I see.
Nick: Yeah, you know, just seeing how things are going. What can I get you?
Neil: You know what? Coffee, black.
Nick: Coming right up.
Neil: Thanks. So you all set for the meeting?
Neil: Yeah, with the group from r&D. It's this afternoon. Don't tell me you forgot about it.
Nick: No, I didn't forget.
Neil: So how are things going? Still sleeping in your office?
Nick: Not sleeping at home, that's for sure.
Neil: Look, man, I don't know all the details of what's going on between you and sharon. I'm pretty sure there's another guy involved.
Nick: It's more complicated than that.
Neil: Usually is. You know, infidelity, it's probably the worst thing that can happen to a married couple. It cuts deep. Seems that there's no way to stop the bleeding, but you have to find a way somehow to stop it. I have to believe that there are two sides to this story. Otherwise, you would have divorced sharon months ago, which means either you still value your marriage, or you have some sins of your own to atone for.
Raul: Hey, here's one.
Raul: Three bedroom, two bath, utilities included, flexible lease. Oh, never mind. That's all the way out by the airport.
Billy: Trevor, two cups of coffee, please. What's going on, guys?
Brittany: We're looking for places.
Billy: Find anything good?
Raul: Not really, man. Everything's either too pricey, too small or just too far away from the campus.
Mac: Thank you.
Billy: How 'bout you, britt?
Brittany: Yeah, I think I found one. Where'd it go? Oh, yeah, two bedroom over on sycamore.
Mac: Two bedroom?
Brittany: Yeah, what's wrong with that?
Mac: Well, I want my own room. I thought you knew that.
Brittany: Well, raul had mentioned that. I didn't know it was a requirement.
Mac: Well, it is.
Brittany: Can't you and billy just share the master bedroom, put up a screen?
Billy: It's not gonna fly, britt.
Raul: Yeah, we're gonna need a three bedroom.
Brittany: Fine. I'll keep looking.
Billy: Well, let's see some of the places that are too expensive.
Raul: Here. I circled 'em.
Billy: This place on hawthorne doesn't look too out of control.
Raul: Mbebeot for you, man. I'm almost tapped out.
Brittany: Same here.
Raul: Well, at least your parents are gonna help you out.
Brittany: Says who? When they find out I'm going to G.C.U., They're gonna totally flip out. I wouldn't be surprised if they cut me off for good.
Mac: You still haven't told your mom and dad?
Brittany: No, I'm waiting till the last possible second.
Mac: Aren't you supposed to leave for new york next week?
Brittany: Yes, and thank you so much for the reminder.
Mac: Okay. What about you, raul? How'd your parents react when you told them you weren't going to boston?
Raul: Well, I haven't actually broken the news to them yet.
Mac: What? Raul!
Billy: Actually, mac--
Mac: Not--not you, too. Okay, so let me get this straight. I told my grandma like five minutes after I decided to stay in genoa city, and the rest of you still haven't said a word to your parents?
Mac: Well, you're going to. The three of you are telling your parents today.
Billy: Ah, gee.
Mac: Or I'm going to tell them for you.
Brad: Didn't expect to see you this morning.
Olivia: Well, I was on my way to the hospital, and I thought I'd bring you some breakfast.
Brad: That's what smells so good.
Olivia: Mm-hmm. It's fresh coffee and those cinnamon rolls you like so much.
Brad: Oh, thank you. Do you want to join me?
Olivia: No, I shouldn'T.
Brad: Busy morning?
Olivia: No, it's just that I don't want you thinking that I'm fishing, you know, for an invitation.
Brad: I wasn't thinking that. I'd welcome the company.
Olivia: All right.
Olivia: So how have you been?
Brad: Okay. Please sit down. Let me get that for you.
Olivia: I was really glad that you called yesterday. I can't believe what you told me about victor, that he almost found out about abby.
Brad: Yeah, it was a pretty close call.
Olivia: I have been, um, I've been thinking about you a lot since-- since the other day.
Brad: Liv, I haven't been avoiding you. I've just had a lot on my plate.
Olivia: Oh, I know. I know. I totally understand. Believe me. It just goes without saying that if you want to talk about anything, I'm here for you.
Brad: I appreciate that.
Olivia: Can I ask you something?
Brad: Mm-hmm. Sure.
Olivia: Have you had time to think about everything that's been going on with you anasashley, with us? Have you made any decisions? Do you know where you go from here?
Jack: Hey, is that what I think it is?
Ashley: Yeah, my real hair.
Jack: Well, you look great. You're beating this cancer thing.
Ashley: Yeah, taking it day by day. Come on in.
Jack: I'm sorry I didn't check in on you sooner. I just figured the fact that I hadn't heard from you meant that things worked out with victor. Or maybe they haven'T.
Ashley: Brad told nikki.
Jack: About victor being abby's father?
Ashley: She knows the whole story.
Jack: If she knows, that means--
Ashley: Victor doesn't have a clue.
Jack: How is that possible?
Ashley: Believe me. It wasn't easy. First, I had to convince brad that victor's out of the loop, but then we had to get over to the ranch before nikki told victor everything, and thank god we got there just in time.
Jack: How did you convince her to keep that to herself?
Ashley: Brad made her realize that if victor does find out the truth, she has as much to lose as anybody.
Jack: Well, thank god you dodged that bullet.
Ashley: The qststion is for how long?
Nikki: It doesn't make any sense. You don't even like diego. Why would you help him get revenge on these guys who mugged him?
Victor: He put the whole thing in motion without letting me know, all right?
Nikki: But you could have stopped it, victor.
Victor: By the time I heard about it, it was too late. Do you understand that?
Nikki: I just don't know why you couldn't let the police handle it.
Victor: Because he wanted to settle the score.
Nikki: Talk about juvenile. Okay. I have to go. I have a stop to make on the way to the office.
Victor: Where do you have to go?
Nikki: If you must know, I'm going to see ashley.
Victor: Why do you see-- why?
Nikki: Why not? You've done your share of socializing with her. It's my turn. At least I'm telling you about it.
Victor: Are you planning to give her a hard time?
Nikki: Why would you think that?
Victor: For the last time, there's nothing going on between ashley abbott and me. Absolutely nothing.
Nikki: Yes, I know. All you have given her is support.
Victor: For heaven's sake, nikki, she's a friend. I once was married to the woman. If something happened to her today, I'd be at her side again.
Nikki: Yeah, I know you would.
Victor: Are you suggesting there's something romantic going on between me and ashley?
Billy: Mac's right. We need to tell our parents.
Brittany: I can hear them now. They're gonna tell me I'm making a huge mistake.
Raul: Yeah, I'm gonna get the same speech.
Mac: Well, if it's any consolation, I still have to tell my dad I want to live with you guys and not my grandma.
Brittany: Oh, he'll be okay with it, once you make it clear that you and billy are gonna have separate bedrooms.
Billy: Well, let's face it. We're all in for a lecture, but they'll have to deal with it. It's not like we're dropping out of school. We're still going to college.
Raul: Right. We're just going to a different place.
Billy: So what are we waiting for? Let's get it over with. Cell phones ready?
Raul: It's the pay phone for me.
Billy: Hey, whatever works. Remember, we gotta stick together on this thing. One person caves, the whole plan falls apart. Everyone agree?
Billy: All right, let's start dialing.
Sharon: I did everything you said, katherine. I acted totally indifferent toward nicholas. I pretended like I was moving on with my life without him. I even offered to sell him my half of the coffee house.
Kay: And he didn't care?
Sharon: On, no, he did. He couldn't believe I'd be willing to walk away from crimson lights since the place used to mean so much to us.
Kay: Well, now that sounds very promising.
Sharon: That's what I thought, but then he started pushing all the wrong buttons.
Kay: What do you mean by pushing all the wrong buttons?
Sharon: Well, he guessed that the only reason I was acting that way was because you put me up to it. Then we argued.
Sharon: And as he was leaving, he told me to have my lawyers call his.
Kay: Oh, dear.
Sharon: My marriage is finished, katherine. I don't know what else I can do.
Kay: I'll tell you exactly what you can do. Now you listen to me. You pick yourself up and you start all over again.
Nick: Trust me. I didn't do anything I wasn't provoked to do.
Neil: Listen, I know you didn't ask for it, but let me give you some words of wisdom from a guy who let his own marriage slip away.
Nick: Look, before you say anything--
Neil: I know. I know. I know. My situation was different than yours. My wife wanted a career. I wanted her at home raising babies. What you and I have in common is that I felt like you do-- so certain I was the injured party.
Nick: You had a right to your feelings.
Neil: Yeah, sure I did, but because I wouldn't budge an inch, look where it got me. Dru took my daughter to europe. I missed out of most of my little girl's chilooood years, and I lost the only woman I ever really loved.
Nick: Dru's back, man.
Neil: Yeah, she's back. She's back all right. She came back to town with a man, a guy she may be in love with, a guy she might choose over me. What I wouldn't give to be where you are right now. To know that I still had a chance to get my family back.
Nick: So what are you saying, man? I should just forget everything she did?
Neil: If it means saving your marriage, damn straight. Do you love her? Do you love your kids? Do you want to see your family reunited? If you do, my man, you'd better get on this thing right away before it's too late.
Nick: Look, I appreciate what you are trying to do.
Neil: Yeah, but are you listening to me?
Nick: Yeah, I'm listening.
Neil: I'm sorry. I don't mean to get too personal with you.
Nick: I don't need any more advice, all right? You don't know what's going on in my life.
Neil: Okay, I hear you. I'm just trying to help you.
Nick: I'll see you at the meeting.
Neil: Yeah, see you at the meeting.
Victor: Why's everyone acting as if there's something going on between ashley and me? In this day and age, can't a man and a woman have a friendship without everyone thinking that it's romantic?
Nikki: Look, you and ashley are not just a regular man and woman. You were married once, and it's very obvious that you still care very deeply for her.
Victor: Nikki, why do you insist upon turning this into something it isn't?
Nikki: You know, the fact that you just can't see where I'm coming from is just more validation.
Victor: Validation for what? When ashley showed up here the other night with brad carlton, didn't that put your concerns to rest? I guess it didn'T. I guess I was wrong.
Nikki: Well, victor, you've been wrong about a lot of things.
Victor: What is going on? What are you not telling me?
Nikki: I have to go. (Door slams shut)
Jack: So what happened after you and bradley left the ranch?
Ashley: We came back here.
Jack: He spend the night?
Ashley: No, grabbed some things and he took off. I haven't heard from him since.
Jack: Hey, give it time, huh?
Ashley: Yeah, sure, and what if he can't get past this?
Jack: Hey, it's no secret. I have never been brad carlton's biggest fan, but I watched him with you during this whole illness. I saw the kind of character he had. He was there for you. What does that look mean?
Ashley: Yeah, he was my rock, but as for being totally steadfast...
Jack: What are you saying? He wasn't?
Ashley: You know, as he was standing by my side, he was also getting involved with another woman
Brad: Where do I go from here? I'm not exactly sure.
Brad: I know that's not the answer you were hoping for.
Olivia: Look, no, I have no right to assume anything.
Brad: You have every right to wonder where things stand between us, especially after what happened the other night. Making love to you was amazing. I felt a new level of closeness, a new connection.
Olivia: I felt the same way. I understand that you have more at stake than I do. I mean, I'm a free agent, and you, you've got...
Olivia: Right. Complications.
Brad: Do you wish those issues were out of the way?
Olivia: Yeah, that would be great, but you wouldn't be the man that I know if you just walked away from all of this. You're being pulled in so many different directions. I mean, for one, there's abby.
Brad: That little girl means everything to me.
Olivia: I know she does.
Brad: Now when I think of her--
Olivia: Now when you think of her, she's no different as a result of any of this. She's as precious to you as she ever was. I mean, come on, you're her daddy. That's a fact, and it's never gonna change.
Brad: God knows I wanna believe that, liv. But how do I forget who her biological father is? How do I get past the fact that this man that I detest more than anyone in the world is responsible for helping to create this beautiful, perfect little girl? He's part of her.
Olivia: Yeah, and you're part of her, too. Okay, maybe it's not your blood pumping through her veins, but in her heart and soul, you are the most important man in her life.
Brad: I'm a little surprised to hear you say all this.
Olivia: Why? Because you think my pushing you towards abby is gonna push you towards ashley? Well, brad, I've made a decision.
Sharon: That's your advice? I should just pick up and move on with my life?
Kay: Oh, sharon. Darling, I, uh... I do not mean to sound insensitive, but I did warn you what it might be like if you showed nicholas you could move on.
Sharon: He might move on himself.
Kay: If you ask me, your marriage was on its last legs.
Sharon: As far as I'm concerned, nicholas has shown exactly how he feels. I've done everything I can to fight for my marriage, but it didn't work.
Kay: Listen to me. Now listen to me. Are you truly prepared to walk away from your life with nicholas?
Sharon: What life? Everything we shared, that's all gone. The only thing that's left is the shell of a relationship, and I can't live like that. I have to end it now.
Kay: Or you could go back to nicholas and demand to talk to him.
Sharon: I can't do that.
Kay: Why not do that?
Sharon: Because it won't work.
Kay: You won't know unless you try.
Sharon: Katherine, it's over, all right? Nicholas doesn't want to be with me anymore. He's made that perfectly clear. And I'm tired of fighting. I'm drained. My children are drained. I have to move on with my life.
Kay: Oh, sharon, I'm so sorry to hear you talk like this.
Sharon: Well, we both knew this might be coming.
Kay: Yes, well, it's one thing to talk about saving your marriage and to feel that ray of hope, and it'S... and, you know, it's quite another thing to see it just fall apart before your very eyes.
Sharon: Well, that's what's happening, katherine. There's no use pretending anything else.
Kay: Oh, sharon. Oh, sharon, I'm so sorry.
Brittany: Thank you.
Anita: So what's this little meeting all about?
Brittany: I wanted you both to know that I've made a decision about school.
Anita: What kind of decision?
Brittany: I'm not going to new york.
Anita: I beg your pardon?
Brittany: I've decided to stay here and enroll at G.C.U.
Adela: You mean you will not be leaving us?
Raul: You're not upset?
Vicente: Why would we be upset?
Adela: As happy as we were that you got into an excellent school in boston, we were gonna miss you so much. It will be wonderful to have you living at home.
Brock: So you don't want to live here with your grandmother?
Mac: No, I don'T.
Brock: Well, where will you live?
Mac: Well, I'm looking for an apartment near the university.
Brock: I see.
Mac: Dad, you know how much I love grandma, and I'll still see her all the time, but I realized that I'd like a little more independence. Hey, that's part of what college is all about, right?
Brock: True. Though I must say that I'm not very comfortable with this idea of you living off-campus by yourself.
Mac: Oh, I wouldn't be by mysel
Brock: You'd have a roommate?
Jill: You're not going back to louisiana? This is the best news in the world.
Billy: Well, here's some better news. I'm starting school this semester.
Jill: Of course you are. I'll bet you can hardly wait to get out to rhode island. Oh, that means we've got to get you a plane ticket.
Billy: Actually, I don't need one. I'm not going to brown.
Billy: I'm enrolling at G.C.U.
Jill: Billy, you're staying here?
Billy: Pretty cool, huh?
Jill: Darling, what brought this on?
Billy: I guess being away made me realize h hometown is where I really wanna be. Aren't you gonna say anything?
Jill: You cannot imagine how happy you've made me! My baby is gonna be right here in town. Oh! Oh! (Knock on door)
Sharon: Come in.
S sharon: Victor, oh, my god.
Victor: Don't be alarmed. Don't be alarmed. I just came by to thank you for sending the kids to your mother's house last night.
Sharon: You're injured. What happened?
Victor: Well, we had some visitors. Got a little out of hand. Someone hit me on the back of my head with a bottle.
Victor: It's all right.
Sharon: I think you'd better come in and sit down and tell me what happened. Come on.
Victor: Well, I got hit over the head with a bottle, and now I have a little headache. That's all.
Sharon: Oh, a little headache, huh?
Sharon: Have you seen a doctor?
Victor: I don't want to see a doctor.
Sharon: Well, you should at least take something for the pain. I know. I have some pills upstairs. The doctor prescribed them for me last fall when I was having some terrible headaches.
Victor: That's very sweet of you, but it's really not necessary.
Sharon: Yes, I don't wantou to suffer.
Victor: All right.
Sharon: I'll be right back.
Jack: Brad had an affair?
Ashley: I don't know what you'd call it.
Jack: Well, what the hell does he call it?
Ashley: According to him, during that time while I was getting chemo, he needed somebody to lean on. And that's when he and this woman became close. That's how it started.
Jack: Damn him.
Ashley: Jack, I can understand that you're upset. Believe me, but the last thing I need is for you to get crazy.
Jack: So this whatever we're gonna call it, is this still going on?
Ashley: I've already said too much.
Jack: Just tell me who the woman is.
Ashley: It doesn't matter.
Jack: Wait a minute. It's not nikki?
Jack: Well, I know the two of them have been close for a long time, and I--
Ashley: No. I wish it were nikki.
Jack: What the hell does that mean?
Ashley: I don't know. Guess it would give me a reason to be angry with her. I mean, right now I just feel awful about everything, what she must be going through.
Jack: Okay, so getting back to this woman, was this a stranger?
Ashley: Jack, I'm warning you. Come on.
Jack: Okay, okay. I'll back off. Well, god, this does complicate things, doesn't it?
Ashley: Tell me about it. Kind of makes me question his commitment to our marriage. For all I know, he could be with her right now.
Jack: I hate that you are going through this rightowow.
Ashley: Yeah, me too.
Jack: Yeah, I also hate the fact I can't do a thing for you. Sis, you're just gonna have to take it day by day and focus on the positives.
Ashley: Are there any?
Jack: Well, there's one. Victor's still in the dark about abby.
Olivia: You know, when I came in here, my first instinct was to leave,ve you some space, some timand I probably should have done that.
Brad: I asked you to stay.
Olivia: I know. I know. It's just that it's wrong of me to bring in my own personal feelings. At least, it's wrong to do it right now.
Brad: Olivia, I'm not sure what you're getting at.
Olivia: I just get the feeling that my being here is putting additional pressure on you. I mean, you have a lot to sort out, and the last thing you need is me adding to it. Brad: All right, liv, listen.
Olivia: No, just let me finish. I know you have a huge decision to make. And as hard as this is for me to say, you're gonna have to do what b best for you, even if that means not including me. You need to listen to your heart. And if your heart is still with ashley, you need to go back to her 'cause if you don't, you're gonna regret that for the rest of your life, and I don't want to be responsible for that. I can't live with that. I do love you, brad. And I feel I have a lot to offer you, and I could start a life with you in a heartbeat, but if it's not something that you want, that you truly want, then it's never gonna work. I gotta go.
Brad: You're an amazing woman.
Anita: I don't understand, brittany. For years, all we've heard from you is how desperately you want to get out of genoa city. Now you finally have the chance, and you're gonna give it all up to go to some... state school?
Brittany: If you knew me at all, you wouldn't be so amazed.
Fred: Whatever the hell that means.
Brittany: I still want to get an education. Going to college is really important to me. But I want to do it here in genoa city with raul.
Adela: The scholarship can't be transferred?
Raul: No, mom. Listen, the scholarship is for pemberton, and if I withdraw from that school, I give up the money.
Vicente: I don't understand how you can turn your back on such a blessing.
Raul: I'm gonna apply for another scholarship. And until then, I can work part-time. I can even apply for a student loan if I have to. I'll be fine.
Adela: I know what this is really all about. It has to do with brittany, doesn't it? You're staying because of her.
Brock: So you'll be living with friends.
Mac: Three of them, but before I say any more, I want you to know that I'll have my own room.
Brock: Billy's gonna be one of your roommates.
Jill: I am so delighted you're gonna be staying in town. Oh, darling, we have so much to do. We've got to make arrangements. You're gonna be moving into a dorm, I assume, and rushing--
Billy: Wait, mom, hold on. I'm getting an apartment with some people.
Jil what people?
Billy: Well, it turns out I'm not the only one who's had a change of plans. Brittany and raul are also going to G.C.U., And so is mackenzie.
Jill: Billy, mackenzie goes to northwestern.
Billy: Not anymore.
Jill: So you're planning to get a place together.
Sharon: Here you go.
Victor: Thank you.
Sharon: I hope this helps.
Victor: Normally, I'm not someone who takes any pain medication, but with this headache, I think I'll make an exception.
Sharon: I'm so glad you're okay, victor. With what those creeps did to diego, you know, you're lucky you weren't seriously hurt.
Victor: Well, the most important thing is that they're off the street and now behind bars.
Victor: Ahh, it even hurts to move my head. Mmm. So how are things with my son?
Sharon: Not very well, I'm afraid.
Victor: Why, have things gotten worse?
Sharon: I've realized that nicholas really doesn't want this marriage, and he may never want it. So for the sake of the children and my own sanity, I have to realize that, and, um, I've made a decision.
Victor: What kind of decision have you made?
Sharon: I'm serving nicholas with divorce papers today.
Man: I'm looking for nicholas newman.
Cody: You found him.
Man: Consider yourself served.
Cody: Whoa, whoa. Wait a minute. I'm not nick newman, but this is his coffeehouse. Attorney-at-law. What's this about?
Man: I don't know. I didn't read it. I'm just supposed to serve it.
Cody: Okay, well, he'll be back in a little while. He has some checks to sign.
Man: All right, I'll come back. Are only as d as you feel.
Claire: Oh, yes, which makes me close to
Victor: You're filing for divorce?
Sharon: It's the only option I have.
Victor: Oh, sharon. Are you sure you don't want to reconsider?
Sharon: There's nothing to consider. I can't spend my life sitting in neutral, waiting for something to happen when I know that it won'T.
Victor: Please, listen to me. Don't--don't do this now. You and my son have two beautiful children. You have a wonderful family. Don't throw all that away, not now. Now that you still can patch things up.
Sharon: That's just it, victor. I don't think we can.
Victor: What about cassie and noah? I've got to tell you, I've enjoyed it very much having all of you live so close to me. I really hav a and there are very few families that do that these days.
Sharon: Victor, my mind's made up.
Victor: Sure you don't want to wait just a little longer?
Sharon: I wish I could. I hate that I'm taking this step, but I can't stay in this marriage and keep my own sanity. I have to do this, victor. You see, I have to. So, please, don't be angry with me.
Sharon: These last few months have been an absolute nightmare for me, and you're the only person that I've been able to count on. I don't know what I would do without your support. I don't know how I would have gotten through it. So please... please don't turn your back on me now, please, please.
Victor: It just makes me very sad. (Doorbell rings)
Ashley: What a surprise.
Nikki: I doubt that. I would think you'd be expecting this visit. Are you going to invite me in?
Ashley: This is about abby, I take it.
Nikki: Of course it's about abby. You think you can drop your little bomb about victor being her father, and I'm just going to disappear into the background? I don't think so. No, now you and I e e going to have to deal with each other the rest of our lives. We share a secret that can blow both of our worlds apart, and I think that we need to set some ground rules.
