Victor: I want to thank you for your testimony.

Phyllis: I hope it helped.

Victor: It was very courageous on your part. I'm sure it did. (Telephone rings)


Brad: Will you relax?

Jack: Yeah, how am i supposed to do that? My wife just stabbed me in the back.

Brad: Look, I'm just as upset with Phyllis as you are.

Jack: Yeah, I doubt that.

Brad: But all that matters right now is what the judge says.

Jack: Yeah, well, thanks to that traitor... I can't believe she would do that. Stood there and spit in my eye publicly. None of this is any of her damn business.

Silva: Gentlemen, I just got a call from the clerk. Judge Billington is ready with his decision.

Clerk: Be seated, please.

Judge: Thank you for waiting, everyone. I won't keep you in suspense any longer.


Michael: I know he wants to talk, but I took the afternoon off. Look, it's no reason. It's, you know, it's just... itís... it's been a monster of a day already. I know you will, Chantal. Mm-hmm. Thank you. All right. I'll see you tomorrow. Bye-bye. (Doorbell rings) (ring) (Noises at door)

Michael: What the hell's going on?

Kevin: Jeez, Mikey, that's not funny!

Michael: Don't you ever break into my apartment, ever!

Kevin: All right, ease up. I was just gonna wait for you.

Michael: Well, you donít. You wait. You wait outside. Okay? I mean it!

Kevin: Okay. Okay.

Michael: So... what's going on?

Kevin: You know, the usual.

Michael: (Chuckles) don't tell me.

Kevin: Yeah, you guessed it. I'm being accused of something I didn't do.

Michael: Oh. I have to say, little brother, I simply don't see how all those people can be all wrong, all the time.

Kevin: It--it's crazy.


Neil: Hey, Drucilla, honey, what was so urgent that I had to rush right over, huh?

Dru: Oh, honey. Lily has become obsessed with Kevin Fisher.

Neil: What?

Dru: She wants to make him pay for what he's done to her.

Neil: Well, do you blame her? I mean, frankly, I fee the same way about that creep.

Dru: Honey, it's the way that she's going about it. She's trailing that maniac by herself. It's dangerous. We have to figure something out. Come on. Let's go.


Jill: Tom, there has to be a work around. We can't afford to just halt production while we're waiting on inventory. What about the Spokane plant? They have a whole shift idle, and they're within a days... exactly. You have Robertís number over there? Great, great. See, I knew if we just put our heads together... well, you're very welcome. Okay, Tom, keep me posted. I'm sorry about the interruption. What?

Arthur: Amazing.

Jill: What is?

Arthur: You told me you didn't go to college. No M.B.A., And yet, to see all this-- the level of success you've obviously achieved-- makes me proud, Jill, very proud.

Jill: You have no idea how much it means to me to hear you say that, Dad.

Arthur: And I'm especially pleased that you've invited me here, letting me see where you work.

Jill: Well, it's just all a part of us getting to know one another.

Arthur: Uh-huh. So tell me, how does someone with so little formal training wind up a senior V.P. And member of the board at a major cosmetics firm? Must be one heck of a story.


(Doorbell rings)

Kay: I-I'm coming! I am coming. Elizabeth.

Liz: Hello, Katherine.

Kay: Oh, God, it's so good to see you. Oh, yes, yes, yes, yes. Oh, Jill told me you hadn't left town, and I was hoping you would come by and see me for a visit.

Liz: Well, I'm here now. And you look so well.

Kay: Why are we standing in the hallway? For heaven's sakes, come in, come in, come in.

Liz: Oh, the house looks real nice.

Kay: Yes, well, I, uh, I'm not sure how much Jill has told you.

Liz: You mean how she got it in her head to redo the place. I hear there were, uh, some awful bad side effects.

Kay: You mean, about my drinking? Yes, Elizabeth, it was terrible. It was just a terrible thing.

Liz: "Was" terrible?

Kay: I know that alcohol is the worst thing in the world for me, Elizabeth. I know that.

Liz: So you're fighting it, the temptation.

Kay: Well, yes. Jill finally convinced her men to stop demolishing my home.

Liz: That was a turning point? Good for you.

Kay: No, good for Jill. I mean, finally, finally, Elizabeth, she has... she--she's taken a few things to heart


Judge: Will the defendant please rise? Mr. Newman, you stand before me convicted by your own admission of commercial bribery and of conspiring to commit your crime in a premeditated manner. A man of your power, your means, it's hard to believe you would stoop to such behavior for a few more dollars or to wreak vengeance on someone you dislike. That said, I certainly wish you and Mr. Abbott had been able to arrive at a settlement of damages. That would have made my job a good deal easier.

Jack: Chump change.

Judge: Excuse me, Mr. Abbott?

Brad: (Whispers) Jack.

Jack: I'm sorry, your honor. I said "chump change." That's all Victor Newman offered me.

Judge: Well, $75 million seems like a lot of money to someone of my modest income, but that's academic now. What is clear to me is that you, Mr. Newman, allowed your emotions to overpower the good sense I assume you must possess given your achievements as a businessman. For that lapse of judgment and especially for the damage you caused to people with whom you had no real argument, you must pay a price.

Judge: However, I see no benefit in sending you to jail. No, Mr. Newman, I have other plans for you.


Neil: Hey, honey.

Dru: Hey, honey.

Neil: I can understand why you're so upset.

Dru: Arenít you?

Neil: Yeah, but Lily's following the guy... you know, I-- I can relate to that, too.

Dru: You cannot be serious, Neil.

Neil: Hey, come on. It also helps her feel less like a victim, not so powerless.

Dru: Oh, I don't know. I suppose that is a part--

Neil: Of course it is. You know what? I did something similar myself.

Dru: You've been following Kevin Fisher?

Neil: No, sweetheart. I hired a private detective a couple of weeks ago to do it for me.

Dru: What?

Neil: Yeah, but I called him off after we found out that Paul Williams was investigating. I didn't want to complicate things. So it looks like we're just gonna have to keep our finger's crossed until l he finds something out.

Dru: Honey, what about our little girl? If Kevin Fisher finds out that she's been following him, who will be powerless then?


Michael: All right, let me get this straight. We can add young Mr. Hellstrom to the list of people who think you pulled the switch on that poor girl at Marsino's. Mr. Marsino thinks you're the villain, too, right? And then there's, uh, the boyfriend Raul and Paul Williams and then there's Detective Weber and--

Kevin: Okay, okay. Yeah, they think it. That doesn't make it so, does it?

Michael: Hmm. Kevin, Kevin, Kevin... there's a whole lot of injustice in the world, I'll grant you that. But how is it that so much more than one person's share seems to be coming down on poor little you? There is not a day that goes by that some new outrage isn't perpetrated against you, some new victim pointing an accusatory finger at you and asking the Gods to bring punishment down upon your head. And the whole time you're standing there, reeking of innocence, your baby face covered with tears of unappreciated virtue. It's all so sad.

Kevin: Okay, okay, okay. You can stop making fun of me now.

Michael: Fine. You want me to say it plainer? Well, either you're full of B.S., Or else a whole lot of other people are full of B.S. You can't have it both ways, Kevin baby.


Jill: My rise through the ranks was a little bit unorthodox. I employed some tactics that I'm not necessarily proud of.

Arthur: Well, whatever way you got your foot in the door, you still wouldn't be here if you didn't have what it takes. Your success, my dear, is something that you've earned.

Jill: How did I get so lucky?

Arthur: Lucky?

Jill: Yes that my birth father turns out to be the father I have always wanted.

Arthur: Aww. What a nice thing to say.

Jill: It is from the heart, Dad. Anyway, um, I've had Elsiann clear my calendar.

Arthur: Yes.

Jill: Would you like a tour of the building? We could start down in the lab. I've always found--

Arthur: You know, as much as I'd like that, you know what I'd like even more?

Jill: What?

Arthur: Just to stay here talking, finding out all there is to know about my very impressive daughter.


Liz: Katherine, I want you to know, if there's anything I can do, any way at all that I can help, I--

Kay: Oh, darling Elizabeth.

Liz: No, I mean it.

Kay: Yes, I'm quite sure you do. So, uh, how's your trip been? I mean, have you... have you seen much of Jill?

Liz: Well, no. I mean, she always says she's going to call, but then she never seems to get around to it.

Kay: (Laughs)

Liz: Well, I guess that makes sense, I suppose. I mean, after all, she has another mother now.

Kay: It hurts you, though, doesn't it, Elizabeth? I mean, now that she is favoring the relationship with me.

Liz: Only natural.

Kay: Oh, come on Elizabeth. Now be honest.

Liz: It's partly my fault, I guess.

Kay: What do you mean by that?

Liz: Well, once I told Jill she was adopted, I mean, I knew she wouldn't know a minute's peace until she found out who her birth mother was.

Kay: Well, I don't think she's had peace since she has found out.

Liz: Oh, but at least she knows the truth, Katherine, where she came from. I know that means a lot to my girl, to our girl.


Judge: I'm going to put you on probation for three years, Mr. Newman. If the slightest hint of any impropriety in your business practices comes to the attention of this court, your probation will be rescinded and you will do time in jail. Is that clear?

Victor: That is clear, sir.

Judge: I want you to come up with a program of community service and present it to me within 14 days. I'm not talking about picking up trash along the highway. I'm not talking about a few lectures to a few business students on the wisdom of respecting the law. I want something impressive. You have your wife to thank for the work you're going to put into this, Mr. Newman. In spite of the cries I've heard for youíre head on a platter, Mrs. Newman and then Ms. Abbott as well, convinced me that your skills, your strengths, your connections and your time would be better spent in some constructive enterprise than in a jail cell. Prove it to me. Be creative, Mr. Newman. Come up with a program that shows you are desirous of putting something back into the community that you treated so callously. I know you can do it. I expect you to do it. I order you to do it.

Clerk: Court is adjourned.


Dru: Okay, so after I made Lily swear that she would never follow Kevin Fisher again, guess who strolls in. Three guesses. Kevin Fisher.

Neil: What, here?

Dru: It was all I could do to restrain her from confronting him.

Neil: If it'll make you feel any better, I will talk to her tonight when I get home. I'll back you up, all right?

Dru: Oh, thank God, honey. Please be firm with her, very firm, because she has to stay away from that crazy man. Far away.

Neil: Yeah, of course. I know. Now while we're on the subject, there's another fly in the ointment.

Dru: Come again?

Neil: Michael Baldwin-- he's Fisher's half brother.

Dru: Get out of town. Are you serious?

Neil: I wish I were kidding. Anyway, listen, I gotta get back to the office, return some overseas calls. I will see you tonight, all right, sugar?

Dru: All right.

Neil: Mmm. I love you.

Dru: I love you back.

Neil: All right.

Dru: Michael Baldwin. Well, I'll be damned. You know what, Neil? Maybe you're not as persuasive as I can be.


Kevin: Whose side are you on, Mikey?

Michael: My own. But, unfortunately, since word has gotten around that we share the same mitochondrial D.N.A., People are starting to assume that we're partners in crime.

Kevin: People, like who?

Michael: Neil Winters is the newest member of that club.

Kevin: Oh, the guy is loopy, Mike. He thinks his kid was, like, some holy virgin.

Michael: Well, you took care of that, didn't you?

Kevin: It was a mistake. I mean, stuff happens when you're 15. It's called growing up. What's he gonna do, run around and protect her forever?

Michael: You know what? I canít... I got... you know, I took the afternoon off.

Kevin: No, no, I just--

Michael: So that means that you're gonna have to go home now, all right?

Kevin: Fine. I just want to tell you, I had nothing to do with what happened. I was nowhere--

Michael: I understand.

Kevin: I'm not finished.

Michael: You are finished. Look, Kevin, I want to be a good brother to you. I really do. But I can't deal with all of your stuff and still have time and energy for my own life. I canít. So you gotta go.

Kevin: Okay.

Michael: Please!

Kevin: Okay. Fine. Fine. Heaven knows, I don't want to be any trouble. You have yourself a good life, Mikey. I'll see you tomorrow.


Nikki: It's over.

Victor: Not for me. I don't think it'll ever be over for me.

Nikki: I know.

Victor: I know you do. You spoke about it so eloquently up on the stand.

Nikki: Oh. I really didn't even know what I was going to say.

Victor: I will never forget that you came to my defense at this time in my life.

Nikki: I meant every word of it.

Victor: I know you did, and I love you for it.

Nikki: I love you, too.

Victor: It was so strange sitting in that courtroom.

Nikki: How so?

Victor: (Sighs) well... hmm. Listening to other people talk about me.

Victor: I guess I've hurt a few people in my life.

Victor: I'll try to make up for it.


Kay: So tell me, how long has it been since you and Jill spoke?

Liz: I'm really not sure.

Kay: A few days or...

Liz: Well, yeah, at least that.

Kay: Well, Elizabeth, come on. Please don't tell me that she hasn't said anything.

Liz: Such as?

Kay: Well, uh... anything remarkable?

Liz: No.

Kay: Oh, I see.

Liz: Well, now you're really confusing me, Katherine. Are you gonna tell me?

Kay: Tell you what?

Liz: Tell me what it is that you've been hinting around about.

Kay: You know, perhaps we should just leave it alone. I'm sure that, uh... Jill has her reasons for not saying anything.

Liz: I swear, you can be so maddening. Jill has a reason for not telling me about what?!

Kay: Her father.

Liz: Her father? You mean, Jillís met her father?


Arthur: I'm so curious about your life, Jill, everything-- the growing up years. Would you say you had a happy childhood?

Jill: Happy, that's a thought. Yeah, there were some happy moments. My mama, Elizabeth, she is the salt of the earth. She's really strong, but she's loving, and growing up with her was a blessing.

Arthur: You mentioned that you had some difficult times, financially.

Jill: Oh, we were poor as church mice, especially after my--

Arthur: After your father left.

Jill: Yeah, but my brothers were really smart, and they got huge scholarships. One went to law school, one went to medical school, and I got my beauty school license. Worked in a salon so I could help out while Greg was finishing up his law degree. As a matter of fact, that's when I first met Katherine.

Arthur: Really?

Jill: Yeah, I was about 17, and I was desperate for money and really determined to make something of my life, you know. And I started doing this really rich woman's hair. We became friends, and then, you know, confidants. I eventually convinced her to hire me. So she moved me into her house as a paid companion.

Arthur: Yes, you told me at the club.

Jill: Yeah, Katherine was really good to me at first. But then came the constant mood swings and drunken binges that would go on for days on end. Oh, oh. Yeah, those were bad years. They were very bad.

Arthur: You know, Jill, my heart goes out to Katherine. She must have felt so alone, been in so much pain.

Jill: To be poisoning herself that way, I know. I know. That's why it is so devastating to see her going down the same path again, because those were such ugly years in both our lives. Oh.

Arthur: Well, that's why I'm hoping the gesture you made-- fixing the house up again-- perhaps it'll turn things around for Katherine, give her a reason to stay sober.

Jill: From what I can see, it has done the trick.

Arthur: She hasn't been drinking?

Jill: Well, I haven't seen any bottles or smelled any booze on her breath ever since I called the contractor the day you were there.

Arthur: Oh, wonderful.

Jill: I know, and I'm not saying that she's not gonna relapse, but I think it's a really hopeful sign, don't you?

Arthur: Very hopeful. Maybe it can be a new beginning for all of us-- becoming a real family, even at this late date. I I want that so much, Jill.

Jill: Oh, me, too, Dad, more than you can know. And if Katherine can just manage to hold on and stay away from the alcohol, I don't see what could possibly hold us back.


Jack: You don't want to be here.

Phyllis: Why, because you want to strangle me?

Jack: Don't think I'm not tempted.

Phyllis: Oh, I'm sure you do. Although, I'm sure you wanted to do that in the courtroom.

Jack: You got that right.

Phyllis: Before I could speak my mind.

Jack: Absolutely.

Phyllis: You know why I did it, don't you?

Jack: Sure, to pay me back.

Phyllis: Wow, don't let your ego get away with you.

Jack: Oh, is that what I'm doing?

Phyllis: Yes. Everything I do is not based on how it will impact you, Jack. Someone had to tell the truth. Someone had to stand up for what's right.

Kay: Elizabeth, are you sure there isn't something you would like?

Jill: Oh, what a gorgeous day! There's not a cloud in the sky! Katherine, where are you? Oh, Mama! What a wonderful surprise. How long have you been here?

Liz: Just a little while.

Jill: Well, you're looking very serious. Is something wrong?

Liz: Why didn't you tell me, Jill?

Jill: Tell you what?

Kay: Arthur. About Arthur, your father.

Liz: I would say that it is obvious from the look on your face that you didn't want me to know, didn't want to share that part of your new life with me.


Jill: No, Mama, it is nothing like that.

Liz: Well, then why all the secrecy? Why did you keep it from me?

Jill: Oh, it was nothing deliberate, believe me. It's just that when I met this man--this fantastic man out of Katherineís past-- and I found out he was my birth father, we've just been spending practically every waking moment together getting to know each other. Mama, come here.

Jill: Mama, I wanted you to know. In fact, I was excited about being able to tell you. Please don't ever doubt that.

Liz: You really feel that way?

Jill: Of course, I feel that way. Don't ever doubt it. You know the most miraculous thing of all? Arthur wants to be my father. He wants me as a daughter. And he wants us-- the three of us-- to be a family. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

Liz: I'm so glad for you, Jill that this is happening to you.

Jill: Oh, thank you, Mama. Thank you so much. And you, oh, he is so proud of you.

Kay: Is he?

Jill: Yes! I told him for the past few days I haven't seen you take one single drop of alcohol. And we're just so hopeful. We're just so looking forward to the future. It would mean everything to me, everything, to have a real family at last.


Jack: Victor Newman didn't need you to speak for him at that trial today. He has a wife, a loyal wife, who did that for him. So if you're here to polish your halo, I'm not really interested.

Phyllis: Oh, I'm sure you're not. I'm sure you're not interested in anything I have to say.

Jack: No, not really.

Phyllis: Well, then I'll say what I have to say and I'll leave.

Jack: Make it snappy, will ya? I got some serious drinking to do.

Phyllis: That's pretty stupid.

Jack: Oh, so now I'm stupid?

Phyllis: Drowning your sorrows in alcohol is stupid and so is clinging to this vendetta.

Jack: Well, now there's one thing I have learned about you.

Phyllis: Really, what's that?

Jack: Family loyalty, you just don't get it, do you? You don't even get the concept.

Phyllis: Really? Would that be the same family loyalty that Nick Newman showed when he turned his father in? At your urging.

Jack: Oh, no, no, Nicholas made that decision on his own.

Phyllis: Really? Well, I don't think he would've gone through with it if you hadn't been pressuring him.

Jack: Nick Newman... you know what? This I is all water under the bridge.

Phyllis: Oh, isn't it, though? Isn't it, though? As is our marriage, I suspect.

Jack: Well, surely you don't think, after the stunt you pulled today, there's any hope left.


Nikki: What are you thinking?

Victor: I just want you to know that I have no hold on you now.

Nikki: No hold on me? Don't you realize how much I love you?

Victor: I do. But things are different now. They'll never be the same.

Nikki: What do you mean? Do you feel differently about me?

Victor: I love you more than ever... enough to let you go.

Nikki: Go where?

Victor: I don't know.

Nikki: I don't want to go anywhere. I... I love our life together. I--I want to be with you. That's all I want.

Victor: So do I.

Nikki: Good.

Nikki: Let's not ever let our marriage be tested like this again.

Victor: I promise you, I will never do this kind of thing again.


(Doorbell rings)

Michael: Go away. (Doorbell rings)

Michael: Somebody better be looking for a cat. (Doorbell rings)

Michael: Oh, no. Hmm. Mmm. Drucilla Winters.

Dru: Michael Baldwin.

Michael: So you're here because...

Dru: Yes, wow. Why all the suspicion? I'm not here to cause trouble.

Michael: Of course not.


Jill: Mama, I'm sorry about before. I could tell you were feeling left out.

Liz: Oh, Jill. I know this is something you've wanted so much, something that was missing from your life ever since you were a little girl-- I mean, a father figure, someone strong that you can look up to and admire and respect. And I'm so happy you have it now.

Jill: Oh, Mama.

Liz: And I'm just delighted that Katherine is getting rid of her demons and letting go of the bottle.

Jill: Yes, thank God.

Liz: Speaking of which, I did want to say good-bye. You don't know where she went?

Jill: Oh, I have no... Mother!

Liz: Oh, it isn't-- its fine. Just tell her that I said good-bye.

Jill: I love you, mama. I love you so much.

Liz: Me too, honey. Now, you, I don't want you to be a stranger anymore, you understand?

Jill: I won't be. You too.

Liz: Okay.

Jill: All right, be safe.

Liz: You be good.

Jill: Love you, Mama.

Liz: Bye-bye.


Jack: Well, congratulations! Almost single-handedly, you kept Victor out of jail.

Phyllis: The reason I felt I had to testify was to bring some balance, Jack.

Jack: (Laughs) balance.

Phyllis: Yeah. After that hatchet job you pulled-- painting a picture that everything that Victor did was because of some unmotivated hate crime. Are you kidding me? You and Victor have been ripping each other to shreds since I've known you. Is there hatred? Yes. Is it one-sided? I think not.

Jack: Well, you managed to keep the old boy out of the pen. That should get you a nice cushy job back at Newman.

Phyllis: Well, you just won't believe this has nothing to do with me, that's fine. It's about fair play. I felt it was necessary that the judge knew that everything that Victor did wasn't in a vacuum. So realistically, I was proving a point.

Jack: Oh, spare me the sanctimony. You have an easy answer for everything, don't you?

Phyllis: No, I donít. I didn't do that in court to hurt you. I hope you know that.

Jack: Yet you didn't have a shadow of a doubt in your mind that it would hurt me when you spoke up.

Phyllis: No, I didn't, because your concern is revenge and not justice.

Jack: And what the hell is so bad about revenge after what that man has done to my family?

Phyllis: Well, it's wrong to use the court system to get it. And evidently, the judge agreed with me.

Jack: Well, congratulations again! You saved the day. Thanks to you, Victor Newman gets a slap on the wrist and goes on about his business stepping over people to get what he wants.

Phyllis: Well, I don't know what you saw, but I saw a man who wasn't victorious. I saw a man who was heartsick.

Jack: It's done. It's over. Why are you here? Why are we talking about this?

Phyllis: I don't know. Why are we talking about this?

Phyllis: I just want you to know that the best years of my life have been spent with you, Jack.

Phyllis: Once there was a free spirit named Phyllis who fell in love with a family man named Jack. And just for a moment in time, they were deliriously happy, the stars aligned, and they were madly in love. And then reality started chipping away. I wanted the fairy tale ending.

Jack: And yet you did everything you could to see that that didn't happen.

Phyllis: It always comes back to me, doesn't it?

Phyllis: Maybe I deserved that. I don't know. Maybe some day you'll find it in your heart to forgive me.

Phyllis: I hope so.

Phyllis: I have always loved you.

Phyllis: I will always love you.

Phyllis: I'll have my attorney call yours.

Jack: Good-bye, Phyllis.
