Jack: Hey. If you're looking for Dad, he's already left for work.

Ashley: Why didn't you tell me Victor offered to settle out of court?

Jack: Do we have to talk about this right now?

Ashley: Yes, we do.

Jack: All right. I didn't see the point in it.

Ashley: I had a right to know, Jack.

Jack: Victor Newman’s offer was a total joke.

Ashley: You call $75 million a joke?

Jack: Compared to what we deserve? Yes, I call it a joke.

Ashley: You really will do anything, won't you?

Jack: Okay, what are we talking about now?

Ashley: Your unwavering contempt for Victor. You'll do anything to bring him down, even if it costs us Jabot.


Phyllis: I hope I'm not too late.

Damon: Too late for what?

Phyllis: Breakfast! Breakfast. I picked up a couple of things on my way over here. Although, I gotta be honest with you, I wasn't sure what you'd like. Here you go.

Damon: Well, it looks like you got a little bit of everything

Phyllis: Yeah, yeah, I have... I have scones, I have fruit, some coffee. Nothing too unhealthy.

Damon: I see. Well... (chuckles) thank you, Phyllis. I'm touched. But it's not like you needed an excuse to come over here.

Phyllis: Oh.

Damon: As a matter of fact, I was sort of expecting you.

Phyllis: Really, why is that?

Damon: I heard what happened at Victor's sentencing hearing, how you and Jack sort of... canceled each other out.

Phyllis: (Groans) I'm so pathetically predictable, aren't I? Jeez. "Hey, Phyllis had a bad day. Oh, it's breakfast. She should be on her way over."

Damon: No, no, no, no, no, nothing like that at all. No, listen, I just... I think what you did in that courtroom was extremely brave. But you know there's, uh, there's bound to be fallout.

Phyllis: Yeah, that's one word for it.

Damon: Just know I'm proud of you. And if you need my support... I'm here.


Chris: Have I told you that is my favorite way to start the day?

Danny: Great minds think alike.

Danny: What?

Chris: Oh, God, we have to do something about this.

Danny: Not my color, huh?

Chris: I keep meaning to buy you a new one. I do.

Danny: Then we can have the ceremonial ex-husband's bathrobe burning.

Chris: Yes, followed by the ceremonial ex-husband's new bathrobe christening.

Danny: Man, oh, man. How do you keep us straight?

Chris: Well, I have to say, you have way of keeping me in the moment.

Danny: I do, huh?

Chris: Yes, you do.

Danny: So that makes it easier?

Chris: Much.


Sharon: Okay, make sure I get this right. Chicken sandwich with avocado, no mayo, ma'am.

Cassie: Thank you.

Sharon: And peanut butter and jelly for you, as requested.

Noah: Thank you.

Nick: Man, P.B. And J. That would definitely be my choice.

Sharon: Well, that's good, 'cause I made you one, too.

Nick: Sweet. So, buddy, I meant to ask you, what is up with this bat and glove?

Sharon: Oh, your son's on the baseball team this year.

Nick: You are? Thattakid. We'll have to find some time and get out there and practice, huh?

Noah: Cool.

Sharon: Okay, Miguel’s driving you guys to school, so you better run up there and meet him.

Nick: There you go.

Sharon: Take your jacket. There you go.

Nick: See you, buddy.

Noah: Bye, Dad. Bye, Mom.

Sharon: Bye.

Noah: Come on, Cassie.

Cassie: Um, you go ahead of me. I'll catch up in a minute.

Noah: Slowpoke.

Sharon: You have your homework, sweetie?

Cassie: Yeah, it's in my backpack. Mom?

Sharon: Yeah, honey?

Cassie: Um... are you sure you're all right?

Sharon: You mean, because of what happened the other night?

Cassie: It kind of freaked me out, you screaming like that.

Nick: Look, Cassie, we've been through this. Your mother thought she saw somebody at the window, and it scared her.

Sharon: I'm sure it was just my mind playing tricks on me.

Cassie: Okay. Bye, guys.

Sharon: Okay. Bye.

Nick: Bye.

Cassie: Bye.

Sharon: You love me?

Nick: You know I do.

Sharon: Well, how about proving it up in the bedroom?


Jack: Don't worry about Jabot. When this is all over, Jabot's bank accounts will be brimming with Newman’s money.

Ashley: And when will that be?

Jack: I don't know.

Ashley: Months, years?

Jack: Maybe.

Ashley: Meanwhile, we've got financial obligations that need to be met now, Jack. We have ad budgets, we've got payroll, loan debts. All these things require cash we don't have.

Jack: We will get it.

Ashley: We'd already have it if you hadn't been so blinded by your hatred.

Jack: I take it then you think I should have accepted Victor's offer.

Ashley: Well, given our current situation, $75 million would have come in handy.

Jack: It's chicken feed, Ash.

Ashley: Chicken feed?

Jack: It's chicken feed. Do you have any idea the money we would be making right now if Tuvia had had the launch that we expected?

Ashley: You're basing that on projections we made last summer.

Jack: So?

Ashley: You can't prove Tuvia would have been a hit, Jack.

Jack: Yeah, thanks to Newman’s criminal behavior, I guess we'll never know.

Ashley: You are unbelievable--

Jack: Look, I'm sorry you're upset about this. What's done is done. I rejected Victor's offer. There's no going back now. I don't know what else you want me to say.

Ashley: I want you to say you were wrong! I want you to say you should have talked to Dad and me before you rejected Victor's offer and put our entire company in jeopardy.

Jack: You're being dramatic now. Glenn Rich, I might take you up on that.


Danny: Tell me something, you ever miss private practice?

Chris: Yeah. And when I do, I stick my fingers in my ears and...

la la la la la la la

Danny: (Laughs)

Chris: I don't hear myself anymore.

Danny: Okay, okay, no more work talk. Ten minute reprieve.

Chris: That I can handle. All right, so tell me, what are your plans this morning?

Danny: Well, first off, I'm gonna give Daniel a call. We got lots to talk about before he arrives.


Phyllis: Thanks, Damon. It's nice to know that one person doesn't totally resent me, besides Victor, of course.

Damon: You did what you thought was right.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. Well, try telling that to Jack, my soon-to-be ex-husband.

Damon: You remember what I told you, about the other fish in the sea? A fella can't appreciate you for who you are, he doesn't deserve you.

Phyllis: Hmm. Do you know, Damon Porter, if I didn't know you any better, I would say you were flirting with me.

Damon: Might could be. (Laughs)

Phyllis: You're in a delicate situation, aren't you?

Damon: Why, because I work for Jabot? Doesn't mean I'm gonna blind myself to the truth. That wouldn't be good science, now would it?

Phyllis: Well, good science or not, you should watch out. A good friend of mine once told me you can't have it both ways.

Damon: A very wise friend. But I'm not gonna turn my back on someone I care about. Now how you like that? Listen, I know it's a cliché. It is one, however, that I tend to live by. When God closes a door, he opens a window.

Phyllis: Yeah, really? What if you can't reach the window? I mean, what if, uh, you used up all your chances?

Damon: Oh, Phyllis, will you please stop talking like you've already lost everything?

Phyllis: (Sighs) did I tell you I have a son?

Damon: Yes, you mentioned it. The father has custody, right?

Phyllis: Yeah, yeah. His name is Daniel, my son. He's coming back into town.

Damon: There you go. Wonderful. That's exactly what I'm talking about. You will have a chance to reconnect with the boy.

Phyllis: Oh, no, I won’t. No, I won't, because it's been a really long time since we've seen each other, and his father wants it that way. Yeah, so--so how am I gonna deal with this on top of everything else? So don't tell me that I shouldn't believe that I've lost everything, because, honestly, I can't see how my life can get any worse.


Nick: The bedroom, huh?

Sharon: In the bedroom. You interested?

Nick: Hell, yeah. Unfortunately, I do have to get to the office.

Sharon: Oh. Tonight maybe?

Nick: Yeah, maybe.

Sharon: Nick, about the other night...

Nick: What about it?

Sharon: I know I was a little bit defensive with Grace, and maybe I even overreacted, but you know how that woman gets to me.

Nick: Babe, the thing is, Grace isn't a threat to us anymore. She's just in town worried about her boyfriend. She wants information about Cameron, and so do I.

Sharon: Well, how would I know anything?

Nick: Somebody has to know something. I mean, I still can't believe you didn't tell me that you were with my mother after the party.

Sharon: Like I said, I thought you knew.

Nick: All right. You know, I don't want to get into this with you again.

Sharon: Yeah. Let's not argue, okay?

Nick: Okay.

Sharon: All right. Well, I better get upstairs and get changed.

Nick: Busy day?

Sharon: No. Just some errands and stuff.

Nick: Have fun. (Cellular phone rings) (Ring)

Grace: Hello.

Nick: Grace, its Nick. Where are you?

Grace: Crimson Lights, why?

Nick: Well, stay there. We need to talk.

Grace: Nick, what's this about?

Nick: I'm on my way.


Chris: So that's coming up soon, your son's visit.

Danny: I just wish spring break lasted six months.

Chris: You've really missed him, haven't you?

Danny: Oh, yeah.

Chris: Where will Daniel be staying?

Danny: With me over at the Athletic Club.

Chris: Ooh. That sounds kinda cozy.

Danny: I mean, you know, the room is nice, but it's--

Chris: It's not exactly enormous.

Danny: Not exactly. But you know what? We're gonna be so busy running around doing so much stuff, we'll hardly be there anyway.

Chris: Yeah. It's gonna be so great for you, having him here.

Danny: It certainly is. Though it... it might get complicated.

Chris: I was wondering when you were gonna bring up Phyllis. Tell me, what did Gina have to say about Daniel spending some time with his mom when he's here?

Danny: Lots of pros and cons either way. But you know something, Chris, I just need to talk to Daniel. I need to... I need to find out where his head is, because, I mean, I'm, uh, I'm all over the place on this one.

Chris: Mm-hmm.

Danny: Hey, thanks for everything. I'm gonna get out of your hair and let you get back to work.

Chris: Oh, well... thanks. I'll see ya.

Danny: Bye.


Damon: Phyllis, stop making this harder for yourself than it needs to be.

Phyllis: Wait, what? You know, Damon, that's easy for you to say. You don't have anything at stake. All you're doing is standing here, barking orders at--

Damon: Uh-huh, that's right. Oh, yeah, tell me to mind my own business. Get up off the self-pity!

Phyllis: Excuse me? I just shared with you my innermost pain, and you just toss it off like it's nothing? Maybe I misjudged you.

Damon: Why... (chuckles) 'cause I'm not buying this hopeless routine of yours? Baby, if you want something, you fight for it. It's as simple as that. You want a relationship with your boy, go after it.

Phyllis: What... how?! How am I gonna do that? Danny won't let me. I already tried sympathy. I-I tried hon-- I don't know what to do. Honestly, I don't know what to do.

Damon: Have you tried logic? Look, your boy is at a critical age. He would be a teenager now, right? I think he could use a mother.

Phyllis: Really? You think he needs his mother?

Damon: Don't you? Who's gonna do a better job? Who's gonna want it more, huh?

Phyllis: Yeah.

Damon: All you gotta do is reach out. Be firm. Go and tell your ex you not only want, you expect to be a part of that boy's life.

Phyllis: That's right.

Damon: And don't tell me that's too much for you to accomplish, 'cause I ain't buying it.

Phyllis: No, no, it's not. You're right, you're right. I'm gonna tell him. I have to go see someone.

Damon: Danny?

Phyllis: Oh, I have to see someone. Oh, Damon... thank you. You're exactly what I needed.


Chris: I'm just going over a few police reports.

Michael: Oh, seeing who next feels the heavy hand of justice.

Chris: Well, someone's gotta do it.

Michael: Or there will be anarchy.

Chris: There would be.

Michael: Well, listen, I may soon be out of the legal game altogether, so why should I have an opinion?

Chris: You serious?

Michael: The disciplinary committee of the bar association meets twice a month. I missed the last meeting. So during the next, they'll talk it over, vote. Maybe I'll have my license for a few weeks more or not.

Chris: If you want me to speak on your behalf--

Michael: No, no, no, no, no. I don't think that's a good idea, Chris. You being the prosecutor, standing up for the defense attorney after you've taken his plea no, no, no, no. I don't want to see you get your hands dirty.

Chris: I'm sorry about this.

Michael: Don't be.

Chris: So what do you hear from Victor?

Michael: Ah, nothing much. He seems to be laying low for the time being.

Chris: I can't blame him. I just wish Jack had accepted that cash settlement.

Michael: (Chuckles) especially since his whole intent was to see Victor Newman behind bars, which didn't happen. (Sighs) well, speaking of, uh, personal feelings intruding on the logical processes of the mind, does the name Kevin Fisher mean anything to you?

Chris: Fisher? Um, yeah. Paul mentioned him to me once. Who is he?

Michael: Well, among other things, he's my half brother.

Chris: Wh—


Ashley: At least you don't deny that your one goal in all of this is to get back at Victor.

Jack: Your words. Besides, I don't think anyone would blame me, given what Victor has pulled.

Ashley: What happened to you, Jack? When did you become so consumed by vengeance?

Jack: I guess Newman brings out the best in me.

Ashley: You know, I really hate seeing this side of you. I guess Phyllis does, too, 'cause I understand she testified for Victor.

Jack: I don't want to talk about Phyllis.

Ashley: Are you getting a divorce? So was it worth it, losing your wife, possibly risking your family's business, just so you could get your pound of flesh from Victor?

Jack: I am not just doing this for me.

Ashley: Don't you tell me that you're doing this for my sake.

Jack: It seems to me Victor's antics have cost you more than anyone else. You'd have a child right now if it weren't for that man.

Ashley: Don't you open that door, Jack. I'm telling you right now, just stop it.

Jack: You and Brad would have the son you always deserved.

Ashley: You shut up! Shut up! It was my decision to get behind the wheel of that car. Victor did not force me to do it.

Jack: I don't believe that.

Ashley: I don't give a damn what you believe, Jack. Don't you bring my dead child into this.

Jack: Victor took something very precious from you that day, from all of us. He has to pay a price. So I guess the question is, how much is a child's life worth to you?


Grace: Is this about Cameron?

Nick: Is what about Cameron?

Grace: Your call. It sounded like meeting me was important.

Nick: It is.

Grace: Did Sharon tell you something more? Oh, please, God, don't let it be bad news.

Nick: You know, Grace, you're good. You're really good.

Grace: I-I don't know what you mean.

Nick: You haven't changed a bit. You know, despite our long and sordid past, despite all the trouble you have caused for us, you still find a way to push my buttons.

Grace: What are you talking about?

Nick: Why are you trying to implicate my wife?

Grace: All I care about is finding the man I love. And I am not giving up until I find the truth.

Nick: Grace, come on, the truth and you? What a crock.

Grace: Okay, I admit, I am no fan of Sharon’s. But bringing her down is hardly my concern at this point. I'm only trying to find out what happened to Cameron.

Grace: Can't you understand how worried I am, not hearing from him or not knowing where he might be or...

Nick: Grace, just save it, all right? I know your tricks.

Grace: This isn't about tricks. Damn you. This is about facts. Facts you're evidently afraid to face.

Nick: Okay, well, then what are the facts, grace?

Grace: For one, Sharon was missing the night that Cameron disappeared. And the police sketch of a woman who is a dead ringer for your wife.

Nick: Okay. First, my wife wasn't missing. My mother told me flat out that she was with Sharon that night after the party.

Grace: Well, maybe Nikki was just covering for Sharon.

Nick: The way things have been between those two lately, trust me, my mother's the last person on earth that would do anything to bail Sharon out of trouble. As for the police sketch, it's just the power of suggestion.

Grace: Why did you ask me to meet you here? Was it just to accuse me of trying to make trouble, to deny what's staring you right in the face?

Nick: I wanted to meet you so I could ask you, once and for all, if you have anything other than innuendo or unsupported accusations? Then let's hear it, Grace. If not, then stay the hell out of our lives.


Gina: So tell Mark it's okay for this week, but I'm gonna need a full order next week, all right? Thanks.

Phyllis: Hey, Gina.

Gina: So what can I do for you, Phyllis?

Phyllis: Actually, there's a lot you could do for me if you're willing to put Daniel’s interests first.

Chris: You have a brother?

Michael: Half. That girl was hurt.

Michael: Yeah, electrocuted-- seriously burned-- an electrical short that people seem to think was a setup.

Chris: And they're blaming your brother?

Michael: Yeah, fingers are being pointed. But like I said, the kid seems to be on everybody's list of suspects every time something bad happens.

Chris: Where there's smoke...

Michael: I know. I know. I don't want to believe it, but you're right. False accusations against an innocent person are rare, against the same person multiple times-- extremely rare.

Chris: I can't tell you anything.

Michael: You're not allowed.

Chris: No, there's nothing to tell. Read my lips, Michael. There is nothing to tell, at least not at this point.

Michael: I like reading your lips.

Chris: Watch it.

Michael: All right. I gotta go see a client. Might as well while I still can, right?

Chris: Oh, Michael.

Michael: Hey,don't worry. I've been through a lot worse. You take care. Let me know if you hear anything about Kevin. Look, I know you shouldn't, but still... it would be nice.

Michael: Lookin' good.


Grace: You can blow off Sharon’s resemblance to the woman in that picture if you want, but not me. It's way too close. And as for Nikki giving Sharon an alibi, why didn't she mention it to me?

Nick: I'm gonna ask you this one more time-- do you have anything more worth listening to? 'Cause if not, then I'm out of here.

Grace: What about the night I ran into Sharon at that bar?

Nick: What about it?

Grace: Did you ask her about it? Did she explain to you what she was doing there so late and all alone and acting so weird? You didn't ask her, did you? Why not, Nick?

Nick: Grace, why should I believe anything you have to say about that night?

Grace: Nick, I was there. I saw her. I swear it.

Nick: Grace, it just doesn't compute, like the rest of this made-up story.

Grace: Okay, maybe you weren't there when Sharon came home late that night.

Nick: Not there.

Grace: You could have been working late or on a business trip.

Nick: I've been out of town one night in the last three months. One night, and I didn't even stay the whole night. I got in at around 1:00. Are you saying it just happened to be the same night?

Grace: Well, why don't we check? Compare notes.

Nick: What are you talking about?

Grace: I've got my appointment book. If you've got yours, we can settle this right now. What do you say?


Ashley: How dare you ask me a question like that? You can't put a price on my child's life.

Jack: I know that.

Ashley: Then why would you even say something so disgusting to me?!

Jack: To make a point, Ash. No matter what we seek in damages, it will never be enough. It will never make up for what Victor Newman has caused you and Bradley and the rest of us. That's what this is about! He has caused this family enough pain, enough suffering! I want him to feel one tiny fraction of the pain he's caused us!

Jack: And don't you try to stop me-- not you, not Dad, not anyone! You stay out of my way!

Ashley: This is a family business, and we make our decisions together.

Jack: Not this time.

Ashley: We'll see about that.


Gina: I already know what you want to say.

Phyllis: Good, that saves us a lot of time, doesn't it?

Gina: Not if you've come here looking for some sort of ally.

Phyllis: All right. Well, we're dealing with your typical knee-jerk reaction.

Gina: No, we're not, Phyllis. I want you to go to Daniel and you talk to him, and you leave me out of this.

Phyllis: Okay. Well, see, I can't do that because the reason I'm here is to ask for your help. You don't get to stay neutral.

Gina: Who says?

Phyllis: I do. I say.

Gina: You really are a piece of work.

Phyllis: The reason that I'm here is because Daniel is gonna be back in Genoa City for the first time since he was a little boy, and I'm gonna spend time with him. I am gonna see him. It is gonna happen. You're not saying anything.

Gina: What's there to say? You're standing there issuing your proclamations, aren't you?

Phyllis: Yes, I am.

Gina: Well, then fine. I have to get back to work.

Phyllis: Okay, absolutely, get back to work. But this is what I'm telling you-- you're gonna go to Danny, and you're gonna make him understand that this boy needs to see his mother--

Gina: Shh.

Phyllis: Because he deserves it. I deserve it. I deserve for him to know the woman that I really am, not the woman he's been told I am or the woman that I used to be or the woman who couldn't be the mother that she wanted to be.

Gina: You are not going to bulldoze me into this, Phyllis, because I have my own reasons for wanting to stay out of this.

Phyllis: Even if Daniel’s best interests are involved? 'Cause let me tell you something-- I will go to war over this. I'm not kidding you. I will go to war over this.

Gina: I know you are not gonna believe me, but I really have sympathy for you. I really do. I know you're in pain, a lot of it, for a lot of reasons. I also know that you've changed since you were declared unfit. I saw you with Kyle, and I know that you were good with him.

Phyllis: Thank you.

Gina: But as far as Daniel’s concerned, I--

Phyllis: Listen, Daniel is my flesh and blood. Do I need to remind you of that?

Gina: No, you don't need to remind me of that. My God, I hardly know him myself, and you certainly don’t. Neither one of us have seen him for years. And I can't say, with all the conviction in my heart, that having a relationship with you is the best thing.

Phyllis: But still, you're not saying that it isn't the best thing for him. I mean, you're not violently opposed to this.

Gina: That's fair.

Phyllis: Good. That's all you need to tell Danny, that's it. I mean, that would do the job.

Gina: Just leave me out of it.

Phyllis: You go ahead and stay on the sidelines if you want. But I will spend time with my son when he comes here this spring. I will! And I hope that you make it a pleasant experience for everyone involved. Thank you.


 (Cellular phone rings) (Ring) (Ring)

Daniel: Hello.

Danny: Daniel, hey. I'm glad I caught you.

Daniel: Dad, hi. I just walked in. Nothing's wrong, is it?

Danny: Now why would you think that?

Daniel: You never call this early.

Danny: Well, I didn't feel like waiting till later. Hey, do you have a few minutes?

Daniel: Sure. What's on your mind?

Danny: How are things going?

Daniel: Can't complain.

Danny: Your classes?

Daniel: Same as usual.

Danny: Then I can expect another great report card from you.

Daniel: I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Danny: I'm so proud of you, son. And I can't wait to see you.

Daniel: I'll be in the states before you know it. Uh, Dad, is there a particular reason you called?

Danny: Yeah. Yeah, there is something that you and I need to discuss.

Daniel: Well, whatever it is, I can take it.

Danny: Daniel, we need to talk about your Mother.

Daniel: My Mother?


Grace: Come on, Nicholas, let's do it. Or are afraid to find out?

Nick: Okay, Grace. What's the date?

Grace: There.

Grace: Your turn or have you suddenly lost your taste for facts?

Grace: Well?

Nick: All right. It happens to be the same date.

Grace: Gee, what a surprise.

Nick: Do you have anything more to say, anything that will support your wild suspicions?

Grace: What do you need? I just gave you proof your wife was at that bar.

Nick: So what if she was? It doesn't prove a thing.

Grace: Aren't you gonna do something about this?

Nick: Grace, what do you want me to do? What do you think Sharon did?


(Doorknob rattling)

Sharon: Who's there? Who's out there?!

Sharon: Nikki? Nikki, are you out there?

Sharon: Oh, get a grip, Sharon. Maybe it's just in my mind. Is it?

Sharon: Who is it? (Pounding on door)

Sharon: Who is it?! Who's there?! (Pounding on door)

Sharon: I know somebody's out there. Who are you? What do you want?

Michael: Aah! Sharon, what-- what are you doing?!

Sharon: Michael.

Michael: What... what’s...

Sharon: Oh, my God.

Michael: What's wrong? It's okay. It's okay.


Next on "The Young and the Restless"...

Danny: Your mother lives in Genoa City, and she knows you're coming. She'd like to see you.


Sharon: I told her everything.


Nikki: I cannot believe that you've gotten me involved in this. I don't know what I'm gonna do.
