Y&R Transcript Thursday 1/1/04--Canada; Friday 1/2/04--USA


Nick: Thought you were at the party.

Victor: I was until I heard that you had left to come to work.

Nick: Some of us have to.

Victor: At this hour, after the party?

Nick: Yes, at this hour, after the party.

Victor: Is Sharon here with you?

Nick: No. I told her to take a limo home; I'd meet up with her later, why?

Victor: I understand your devotion to work. But don't you think you should be home with your wife?

Nick: I don't have a choice. I gotta finish this proposal. Cameron's leaving in the morning. He wants our final offer by the time he checks out of his room at the club.

Victor: Let me rephrase what I said. There's no need for you to finish this right now. Someone else will take care of it. You go home.


(Sirens blaring)

Man: Hey! Where do you think you're going?

Sharon: Um... I'm just going up to see a friend.

Man: You one of Marieís girls?

Sharon: What?

Man: Haven't seen you around before.

Sharon: Uh... look, I'm not... like I said, I'm just going up to see a friend.

Man: Oh, yeah, yeah. Sure, honey, whatever you say.

Man: Maybe you can visit me when you're done, huh? I'd like to be your friend, too.


J.T.: Oh, it is so beautiful. Look at this. Hey, happy 2004, my friend.

Raul: Right back at ya.

J.T.: You want a beer?

Raul: No, thanks.

J.T.: Well, I don't mind if I do. I had to behave myself all damn night.

Raul: How'd it go, man? How was your night? Did you have fun with Colleen?

J.T.: Nah, it's not really my crowd, but it was okay, I guess. Food was pretty damn good. It was fun hanging out with colleen and her friends.

Raul: That's good. It's good times.

J.T.: Your girlfriend was there.

Raul: Brittany went?

J.T.: No, Lauren.

Raul: Shut up, man.

J.T.: No, she was. Yeah, she was lookin' pretty good.

Raul: Yeah?

J.T.: She was there with Paul Williams, lookin' pretty cozy. Guess you missed out on that deal.

Raul: Story of my life.

J.T.: Yeah. Yeah, what's up with that, man?


Bobby: Oh, what a night.

Angelo: Yeah. Whoopee.

Bobby: Ange, what are you so grumpy about? You know, we took in a lot of cash tonight.

Angelo: Hey, we make up yet for what we lost those nights we were closed?

Bobby: No, not yet, but don't sweat that.

Brittany: God, was I great tonight or what?

Bobby: Yeah, you were great tonight and what.

Brittany: You know, you just hit those notes exactly like you want to and you kick an inch or two higher than you ever thought you could, and it's just like... yeah!

Bobby: Yeah. I noticed a lot of guys kickin' dead presidents your ways, too.

Brittany: The most tips I've made since I started working here. Only one thing could have been better about tonight.

Bobby: Yeah, what's that?

Brittany: Where was Sal Staley, Bobby? How come your big music business friend wasn't here watching my act, getting ready to make phone calls to his hot connections? Huh, how come?


Nick: What's going on? And don't tell me you're just concerned about me spending more time with my family.

Victor: Regardless of what you might think, I am concerned about your family. But you're right, that's beside the point.

Nick: So what's the big deal? You think somebody could handle this any better? Newman Enterprises has always been a family business. How's it gonna look if some outsider comes in here?

Victor: All I said is that I don't want you to work on this proposal any longer, okay?

Nick: I heard you, Dad. I'm not dropping it. This is my deal. I worked it out with Cameron. I cleared it with legal.

Victor: I'm perfectly aware of what you cleared with legal. They sent me a preliminary report.

Nick: Okay, is there anything you legitimately object to?

Victor: That's beside the point. I told you in no uncertain terms, I no longer want you to run this company, and you disregarded my wishes.

Nick: You're out on bail, and Victoria is God knows where. Who else is gonna run this place?


J.T.: We're gonna have a serious talk, all right?

Raul: All right, fine. You talk, I'm gonna ignore you.

J.T.: Raul, come on, man. I'm serious about this.

Raul: What's serious?

J.T.: Look, the clock is ticking. This is your life, man, and instead of living it, you're... you're cooped up here writing about the civil war?

Raul: Civil war, yeah.

J.T.: On the biggest party night of the year? That's a cry for help, man.

Raul: Whatever. Okay?

J.T.: Hey, you know what? I'm gonna give you something real quick.

Raul: What?

J.T.: Now this was my most prized possession before I met Colleen.

Raul: (Laughs) your little black book?

J.T.: Yeah.

Raul: You're gonna give me your little black book. Hey, didn't I see this on eBay last week? Weren't you asking for, like, 3 million bucks for the thing?

J.T.: I want you to take that, use it. There's a lot of good numbers in that, man. Why don't you call a few of those girls?

Raul: Thanks. Thanks. Thanks, but no thanks.

J.T.: What's wrong with you? Am I right, are you turning into a monk or what?

Raul: Come on, man, get real. You know there's only one girl for me.

J.T.: Brittany.

Raul: Who else?

J.T.: Then why are you throwing it all away?


Bobby: Babe, listen--

Brittany: Don't "babe" me. Yeah, I was great tonight. Do you think that was an accident? You don't think I've been working hard so that I'd be hot when Sal finally came to hear me sing?

Bobby: Listen, I know you've been working hard, but you're only gonna get better.

Brittany: Oh, so when I'm 90, then I'll truly be incredible? No, Bobby. This has got to happen now.

Bobby: I told you Salís a busy guy.

Brittany: Yeah, he's busy making empty promises to other suckers.

Bobby: No, no, no, come on. You know that's not true.

Brittany: I just feel like I'm wasting my time.

Bobby: Really? How you figure that? You got a purse full of cash. You work in front of a live audience.

Brittany: More like a pickled audience. What are you lookin' at?

Angelo: A chick who don't act too grateful for what she's got.

Brittany: Oh, yeah? What have I got that's so wonderful?

Angelo: More than you had when you walked in here. I mean, that's for sure.

Brittany: Angelo, just stay out of this, would you, please?

Bobby: Ange, give me a minute, please.

Bobby: Now what's with you? You're all over the place.

Brittany: Look, Bobby, I never lied to you. This place, this job, this was supposed to be like a launching pad.

Bobby: Right, and I'm doing everything I can to make that happen.

Brittany: Yeah, but in the meantime, I'm up there taking my clothes off.

Bobby: Fine, then you can quit again.

Brittany: Yeah, right. Then where would I be? Why are you looking at me that way?

Bobby: Brittany, I like you. You know that.

Brittany: Bobby--

Bobby: No, no, no, listen. A girl that's with me doesn't have to do anything she doesn't want to do.

Brittany: With you, as in sleeping with you.

Bobby: Why you gotta get crude? Was I being crude?

Brittany: I'm sorry. You're a very sweet man.

Bobby: No, I'm not sweet. I'm tough. I'm smart. I work hard. I got a lot of things to offer a girl like you-- some freedom, some independence, a chance to stop dancing and chase after her dreams.

Frederick: Brittany! Kitten, is that you? Marsino.

Brittany: Oh, God.

Bobby: I don't believe this.

Brittany: Dad.


Nick: I stepped up and took control of this company because it needed me, because this family needed me.

Victor: This family needed you? You have the gall to talk about family after what you did?

Nick: That was a consequence of your actions.

Victor: My actions made this family, you got that?! It is because of my actions that you live the life you live! Don't you ever forget that!

Nick: Tell me something, Dad. Why do you think Victoria left town?

Victor: Why don't you tell me? You seem to have all the answers, don't you, son?

Nick: Because, like her, I lived it-- under your thumb, living by your rules.

Victor: And you had nothing to do with her departure, is that it? You're totally innocent, is that how you see it? Let me tell you why your sister left. Your sister was devastated by the fact that you betrayed your own father. You betrayed your own family.

Nick: What do you call what you did?

Victor: I know what I did! And I'm facing the music! What are you doing?!

Nick: I'm doing what's best for this company, and don't you forget that.


Bobby: We're closed. Party's over.

Frederick: Yeah, well, I'm talking to my daughter. So why don't you just go count your money or something.

Brittany: Bobby, I'll take care of this. Dad, you're drunk.

Frederick: No, I'm not. I'm at a party with your mother at the athletic club. We want you to join us.

Brittany: You and Mom were at a party together?

Frederick: Surprise, surprise. We want you there.

Brittany: Oh, well, I'm sorry. I have other plans.

Frederick: Not with this lunk?

Brittany: With whoever I want.

Frederick: Oh, damn it, Brittany, come on!

Brittany: Dad, please. Will you just listen to me? I don't want us to fight. I'm not coming with you.

Frederick: Why not? Anita and I, your mother--

Brittany: Exactly, you and Anita. And, Dad, I think it's wonderful that you and Mom are going out again. You should be there. You should go home and try to save your marriage.

Frederick: Fine, but I can't stand you in this place, hanging out with that gorilla. It's driving me insane.

Bobby: You know, Hodges, you raised yourself one hell of a woman here. She's bright, she's talented, she's ambitious. You should be proud of her. Instead, you act like there's something wrong with her.

Frederick: The only thing wrong with her, Marsino, is you! YOU! So why don't you shut your trap? I don't want to hear your voice!

Angelo: Hey! What's all the fuss out here?

Bobby: Never mind, Ange. Mr. Hodges here was just leaving.

Brittany: Dad, can I see your car keys?

Frederick: Oh, come on.

Brittany: There is no way you're driving any more tonight in this condition.

Bobby: Ange, call me a cab.

Angelo: With pleasure.

Frederick: I'm fine.

Brittany: No, you're not. Now look, I've gotta get out of here, but please, Dad, if this is your idea of helping me, donít. Give these to the cab driver. Dad, I don't want any more of these scenes. You take care of your life. Let me live mine.

Bobby: Listen, why don't you just wait till your old man leaves before you go? We weren't finished.

Brittany: We are for now.

Bobby: All right. We're gonna finish this conversation, right?

Bobby: Just remember what I said.

Angelo: Cab's on the way.

Bobby: Good.

Frederick: You're living in a dream world, Marsino. You're living in a total dream world. And you know something? You're gonna wake up from it real soon.

(Loud party sounds and music playing nearby)


(Knock on door)

Cameron: You came.

Sharon: You didn't give me any choice.

Cameron: Of course, I did.

Cameron: We always have a choice. You're here because you choose to be here.

Sharon: Lovely place.

Cameron: Yeah, yeah. But I didn't think you'd want to be seen coming to my room in the Athletic Club. People might gossip.

Sharon: Look, Mr. Kirsten--

Cameron: Cameron. You want a glass of champagne? It's good.

Sharon: No, I don't want a glass of champagne.

Cameron: Come on, Sharon. There's no reason that tonight can't be very nice for both of us.

Sharon: Let's just get one thing straight, okay? I'm not here for the reason that you think I am. What happened in the past was a huge mistake. And I will be damned if I'm gonna make the same mistake twice.


Bobby: All right, you're lucky you're drunk. Now go sit down and shut up and wait for your cab.

Frederick: Oh, you think I'm just full of hot air, don't you, Marsino?

Bobby: No, just expensive booze.

Frederick: Yeah, well, I'm gonna close your place down.

Bobby: Like hell you are.

Frederick: Oh, you know what? You're just a little fish in a tiny, tiny bowl, Bobby boy. You think because you've got some control around here, you're the boss, everybody listens to you, but you know what? There's a big, wide world out there of people that don't like what you do. They don't want you in their neighborhood.

Bobby: Ange, what's keepin' that cab?

Angelo: Why don't you give me a hand? You know, we can throw him all the way back uptown.

Frederick: You scare me.

Bobby: I'm not tryin' to scare you, Hodges. I just want you to leave.

Frederick: My pleasure.

Bobby: No, not now. When the cab comes. Your wife's waiting at the Athletic Club. And I promised Brittany that I'd put you in the cab.

Frederick: Well, the way I understand it, Marsino, there's a lot of things you promised my daughter that you haven't delivered on.

Bobby: You know, watch it.

Angelo: Okay, not here.

Frederick: I got news for you, Marsino, your business is going down. I'm not foolin' around. You prey on innocent girls. You bring down property values. And you know what? You're outta this town. You hear me?

Bobby: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Save it. Oh, God.

Angelo: What the hell is up with you, man, hmm? Look, is this jerk right? Are you livin' in a dream world?


Raul: Maybe you and i shouldn't talk about this anymore, is that cool?

J.T.: Why, Raul, you afraid you might hear some cold, hard truths?

Raul: You know what I've been focusing on.

J.T.: Yeah, I do, you and your diabetes. Well, guess what, man, you handled it. You got it under control. So what are you waitin' for Raul, Easter? Newsflash, she's not gonna be--

Raul: Brittany and I, this is gonna take some time.

J.T.: How much damn time do you need?!

Raul: There's a lot of hurt. There's a lot of misunderstanding. You can't just get past this kind of thing overnight, you know?

J.T.: Well, while you're sitting there licking your wounds, you know where your girlfriend is? She's down at that dive with Mr. Slick guy with a fat wallet and a lot of smooth talking, who's all over it, man. He's promisin' her the world for just a little taste of--

Raul: Can we just get off this now? Thank you.

J.T.: Hey, Raul, I'm not saying you still don't have a chance. You're just gonna have to figure this out.

Brittany: Chance? Chance to do what?


Cameron: I don't buy it. I don't believe you came all this way on a cold night to deliver that message.

Sharon: Well, believe it.

Cameron: Oh, come on, Sharon. Can't you admit you find me a little attractive?

Sharon: You're crazy. You make my skin crawl.

Cameron: Oh, and what beautiful skin it is, too.

Sharon: Look, I didn't come here to argue with you, all right? Can't we just put what happened in Denver behind us? And then you go your way, and I will go mine.

Cameron: What, and waste a perfectly good bottle of champagne and a motel room? No, I don't think so. Besides, I lied.

Sharon: About what?

Cameron: I'm not really leavin' tomorrow.

Sharon: But you told Nick that you needed that proposal to be ready so that you could have it in the morning when you leave.

Cameron: What was I supposed to tell him, "I want to seduce your wife"? I told you I would take care of your husband.

Sharon: So it was all just a ploy.

Cameron: Of course, it was. Look, I needed to get Nick out of the way. Poor guy's probably gonna be working all night, so just stop worrying. You're not even gonna be missed.


Victor: Here's what we're gonna do-- you finish that document for Cameron Kirsten, that is your deal, but from now on, any negotiations you enter that pertain to this company, it goes through me. You no longer have the final say, do you understand that?

Nick: Understand it? I was expecting it. I mean, you never had confidence in me before to make my own decisions.

Victor: Why the hell should I?! You betrayed me! From now on, we'll operate as I told you, until I find someone else to run this company.

Nick: And then?

Victor: Then I'll see if there's a place for you at all! Maybe it's best if someone from the outside takes over, someone that I can trust.


Bobby: Look, Ange, don't start on me. I'm not in the mood.

Angelo: Oh, yeah, sorry. You already been ragged on enough by your girlfriend.

Bobby: What?

Angelo: This chick talks to you like you been married for ten years. "I want a singing career, Bobby. When am I gonna get my singing career, Bobby? You know, I am gonna make your life miserable until I get my singing career, Bobby." Now since when do you put up with that kind of nonsense?

Bobby: You know what, Ange? I respect you. We go way back. But there's no way I'm gonna sit here and listen to you lecture me on how to get along with women, okay?

Angelo: Look, I don't care, except for the fact, you're so caught up tryin' to make Miss Brittany happy, you don't even see what's goin' on under your nose.

Bobby: And what is that?

Angelo: What is that? This goofball Hodges, he wants to put us out of business.

Bobby: Yeah, is that what got you strung out? No, he isnít. We got a business license. We pay our tax. We get inspected, Ange. There's nothin' he can do.

Angelo: Man, you just don't wanna hear it, do you?

Bobby: Hear what, Ange, the end of the world?

Angelo: No, the end of this club. Unless you wake up and do somethin' about it.


Brittany: You still haven't said what you were talking about.

J.T.: Oh, nothin'.

Brittany: Yeah, right.

J.T.: So why you home so late, huh?

Brittany: Well, I had a totally fantastic night and a totally frustrating night.

J.T.: How come?

Brittany: It just was, okay? And then to top it off, my Dad shows up, acting like a total idiot.

 J.T.: Bet that was fun.

Brittany: God, what's it gonna take to get him to back off?

J.T.: I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say a career change for his little princess.

Brittany: Why don't you go suck on that beer in the other room?

J.T.: All right. Happy New Yearís to you.

Brittany: What about you?

Raul: What about me what?

Brittany: Well, I'm surprised you don't want to run away, too. Beats listening to my stupid problems.

Raul: Did you eat anything tonight?

Brittany: I sort of forgot.

Raul: I've got some leftover pizza. Want me to--

Brittany: No. I'm not really hungry.

Raul: Okay. Want me to make you some tea or anything?

Brittany: Why are you being so nice to me?

Raul: You look like you need it.

Brittany: I don't want any tea, but thank you.

Raul: So your night, was it fantastic or was it frustrating? 'Cause I doubt it could be both at the same time.

Brittany: Are you sure you want to hear all this?

Raul: Yeah, come here. Sit down. Turn around. Come on, turn around. I'll give you a shoulder rub, all right, while you vent.


Nikki: Finally, he returns.

Victor: Sorry, darling.

Nikki: Where have you been?

Victor: At the office.

Nikki: On New Yearís Eve?

Victor: I went there because our son was working.

Nikki: Why on earth would Nicholas be at the office at this hour?

Victor: He was finishing a document for Cameron Kirsten. He wanted to give it to Kirsten before the guy left town first thing in the morning.

Nikki: Well, that's dedication.

Victor: You mean, since our son has elevated himself onto the throne?

Nikki: I hope you don't begrudge him that.

Victor: My son betrayed me, and I don't want him to run this company. It's as simple as that.

Nikki: Victor, nothing is simple about this. Was Sharon with Nicholas at the office?

Victor: I have no idea. Why do you ask?

Nikki: Well, I don't think she's home. Where could she be?


Sharon: Cameron, I'm begging you. Okay? I'm married. I have children. Will you please, please, just leave me alone?

Cameron: You were married and you had children when I met you in Denver, and you still slept with me.

Sharon: I told you why that happened. Look, I was drunk. I was horribly depressed, and my life was a total disaster.

Cameron: You are the sexiest woman I have ever been with.

Sharon: I was out of my mind, damn it! Do you honestly think that if I had known what I was doing, if I had known what kind of man you are, I would let you take me back to that hotel room?

Cameron: You think I'm a monster? Am I a monster? Look, I don't know why it happened that way in Denver. But I know this-- it doesn't have to be that way this time.

Sharon: Oh, meaning this time you won't beat me up. Now there's an offer I can't refuse.

Cameron: Don't, don't, donít. Don't you do that. Don't get smart with me.

Sharon: Why are you doing this?

Cameron: I want you like I haven't wanted a woman in a very, very long time.

Sharon: Too bad.

Cameron: Come on, Sharon. I can be anything you want me to be. I can be anything you want me to be. I can be gentle. I can be tender. I can be a little rough if that's what you want. You tell me.

Sharon: You just don't get it. I want you out of my life.

Cameron: Oh, yeah. Guess what, honey, we don't always get what we want.


 Victor: Why are y w worried about Sharon?

Nikki: I'm just concerned.

Victor: Well, she's probably still at the party saying the last good-byes. I mean, she co-hosted the damn thing.

Nikki: I know. I still think that is so odd. Why would Cameron Kirsten need her help?

Victor: Yeah, I agree.

Nikki: He's a strange guy. There's just something a little too smooth about him. I can't put my finger on it.

Victor: I must say, in retrospect, I wish I had been the one to negotiate that contract with him.

Nikki: What does that mean, you don't trust Nicholas?

Victor: As sad as that sounds, no, I donít. But this is not so much about Nicholas as it is about that Cameron Kirsten. Something about him is just a little off. I don't know what it is.

Nikki: Mm-hmm. Hmm. Interesting. Even when you and I are at odds, we see things the same way. I guess that's what happens when you live together for so many years.

Victor: It's more, you know.

Nikki: More?

Victor: Mm-hmm. As angry as you are with me...

Victor: You and I belong together. I don't give a damn what anyone else says.


Raul: I'm sorry that you had a miserable night.

Brittany: I'm just glad it's over with. Only it's not.

Raul: What do you mean?

Brittany: I'm still waiting for you to say, "I told you so."

Raul: Why? Why, because you finally realized that this isn't the stepping stone you thought it was?

Brittany: Singing for a bunch of rowdy drunks who aren't even listening, and no Sal. And I was so damned on! God, it was such a waste.

Raul: Hey, come on. Come on. Come on, you're gonna tense up your shoulders again and ruin my work here.

Brittany: I'm sorry.

Raul: It's all right.

Brittany: I shouldn't be going on like this.

Raul: Hey, no. I'm the one that asked you.

Brittany: Yeah, you did. So what's the deal? You've been acting so different these past few days.

Raul: Have I?

Brittany: Yeah. You're easier to talk to. You're mellow. The way things used to be with us.

Raul: Hmm. How about that?

Brittany: Yeah, how about that?

Brittany: I don't suppose...

Raul: What?

Brittany: Any chance you'd want to take this into the bedroom?

Raul: I don't think so.

Brittany: I shouldn't have even asked that question.

Raul: No, no, no, no. Hey, come on. It's all right. There's no harm in asking. So what's going on? What's up with your Dad?

Brittany: Oh, God. Well, it's unbelievable. He actually took mom out on New Yearís Eve. But instead of going, "wow, maybe I could save my marriage," he actually leaves her at the club so he can come roaring over to Marsino's and get in Angelo and Bobby's face.

Raul: About what?

Brittany: The usual, only this time he was drunk. So it was even more charming.

Raul: Brittany, that doesn't worry you at all?

Brittany: What?

Raul: Your Dad. He keeps mixing it up with these people. One day he's gonna push these guys too far.


Bobby: Ange, sit down.

Bobby: The guy's drunk. All those big threats he's makin', it's just the booze talking. In the mornin' he's gonna wake up, he's gonna have a big headache. He's gonna go back to work and start worrying about interest rates and people not makin' their home payments.

Angelo: All he's gotta do is make a phone call.

Bobby: Who's he gonna call, the mayor?

Angelo: Yeah, maybe the mayor. How do you know? Listen, Bobby, we got a good thing goin' here, but there's no guarantees. I mean, we could get chased out tomorrow, and you're riskin' that because you got the hots for the banker's daughter.

Bobby: Somethin' wrong with me wantin' to have a girl with a little bit of class?

Angelo: Hello. She's one of your dancers, Bobby.

Bobby: Yeah. Well, she's different. You know that.

Angelo: Oh, man. Look, look, look, I'm not gonna argue with you about this, okay? You wanna marry this chick, go head. Wanna get your name in the social register? Be my guest. But we have got to deal with her old man now.

Bobby: No, no, not "we."

Angelo: Hey, the dude wants to put both out in the street. I ain't gonna let that happen. Not even if I gotta twist his head off with my own two hands. And hey, Bobby, this is me talkin'. You know I can do it.


Nikki: So what are you saying, you think we're soul mates?

Victor: Yeah.

Nikki: There was a time I believed that with all my heart.

Victor: I think we can get it back.

Nikki: I don't know.

Victor: Have you forgotten that I'm the man who makes things happen, who makes dreams come true?

Nikki: No, I haven't forgotten.

Victor: Nor have I.

Victor: I haven't forgotten one moment of the life we have shared.

Nikki: Victor... oh, God, I loved you so much.

Victor: I have something for you.

Nikki: You do?

Victor: A belated Christmas gift.

Victor: Open it.

Nikki: It's lovely, thank you.

Victor: Well, that isn't all.

Victor: Open it.

Nikki: So beautiful. Thank you.

Victor: This vase will always be filled...

Victor: As my heart is filled with love for you.


Cameron: Where are you goin'? You're not goin' anywhere, not yet.

Sharon: Cameron. Cameron, get off of me.

Cameron: I don't think so. I've waited too long for this. Shh, shh, shh, shh. Shh. I promise you... I promise you, you're gonna like this. Sit down. You wanna play it this way, huh?

[Cameron punches Sharon. Sharon picks up champagne bottle hits him over the head with it.]
