Jill: I don't think I like what you just told me.

Jack: I didn't say it to make you mad, Jill.

Jill: You just told me that I have problems with my father moving in with Katherine and me because I want him all to myself. Don't you think that makes me sound just a little bit like a spoiled child?

Jack: There is a little child alive and well in all of us.

Jill: Maybe in you, Jack.

Jack: Wow. Did I hit a nerve here?

Jill: I come to you with a serious problem, and this is what you give me? You tell me to grow up and get over myself.

Jack: Jill that is not what I said. In fact, I said the opposite. Get in touch with your inner child. We are, none of us, as grown up as we pretend to be.

Jill: This is so not helpful.

Jack: Okay, fine. You don't have a problem.

Jill: Yes, I do have a problem.

Jack: Then what do you say we deal with it? You and I haven't really talked about this. You found out Katherine Chancellor is your mother? That's a biggie, Jill.

Jill: Tell me something I don't know.

Jack: Okay, what I'm about to ask, I don't have a clue as to the answer, but I don't think you do, either. I realize, to this point, you have embraced her as your long-lost mother. But can you honestly get past all the hate you felt for Katherine all those years?


 (Door closes)

Kay: Arthur.

Arthur: Ah, you're back.

Kay: Oh, are you alone?

Arthur: Yes, Jill left. Thank you for giving us time to talk. Where did you go?

Kay: I went into town, and, uh, I... God, I just had one of the most disturbing experiences I've...

Arthur: Well, what, darling? What happened?

Kay: You've heard me speak of Esther?

Arthur: Yes, yes, your maid for many years.

Kay: Oh, she's much more than a maid. She's been my friend, utterly loyal to me, always, and she still is.

Arthur: Is something wrong with Esther?

Kay: Some boyfriend she had took all of her savings, gambled it away, and now she has absolutely nothing. And she's at the Genoa City Athletic Club. She's busing tables, and she's living in a boarding house.

Arthur: Well, I can see why that's so upsetting for you. So what can we do?

Kay: Nothing, nothing, not as long as Jill lives in this home. Nothing.


Nikki: Hey. You're back early.

Victor: I accomplished what I set out to do.

Nikki: Really?

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Nikki: So you can end your seclusion and be with people again?

Victor: I had a lot of time to reflect upon my life, about the things I did wrong.

Nikki: Well, then, I guess those long walks in the woods paid off.

Victor: Tell you one thing-- everything that seemed so all-important and significant is suddenly put in perspective. And it ain't that important anymore.

Nikki: Now you're sounding like yourself again. I like that.

Victor: Yeah. I love to take walks by myself. Nothing like that to restore your soul.

Victor: Except for one thing, and that's you.


Damon: Phyllis, Phyllis, Phyllis. (Doorbell rings)

Vanessa: Hey, good-looking.

Damon: Vanessa.

Vanessa: Well, aren't you gonna invite me in?

Damon: Uh, sorry, of course. Come on in.

Vanessa: Did I catch you at a bad time?

Damon: Not really. I just got back from a meeting with Jack Abbott.

Vanessa: Really? Any news on the research project?

Damon: Afraid not. Ashley still wants to shut us down.

Vanessa: Well, I'm sure Jack's gonna fight that one.

Damon: Yeah, you count on it.

Vanessa: So who do you think is gonna win?

Damon: My money's on Jack. The two of us have become pretty close lately. I trust him to do the right thing.

Vanessa: So I guess you're wondering why I'm here.

Damon: Yeah, uh, it-- it has sort of crossed my mind.

Vanessa: Well, I'm gonna tell ya, just as soon as I use your powder room. Don't go away.


Phyllis: My--my son, my child is staying with you?

Chris: This has got to be your worst nightmare.

Phyllis: Are you kidding me? It makes me want to throw up.

Danny: Phyllis.

Phyllis: Why on God's green earth is... oh, wait a second. Are you... are you guys sleeping together? What is this, Danny, some reward for Christine?

Chris: You know, for your information, it was my idea.

Phyllis: Why is that, Christine?

Danny: Look, the club is booked up, my room is too small, and it'd be too crowded for Daniel to stay with me.

Phyllis: He can stay with me!

Danny: Would you just keep it down, please?

Phyllis: No.

Danny: That's out of the question.

Phyllis: Why, why? Why is it out of the question? Why? Why don't you just take out billboards-- "Phyllis' son hates her guts." Why don't you just tell everybody? You know what? Don't stop with the bug here. Why don't you just spread the word?


Nikki: You have no idea how happy it makes me to hear you say that. You were so down after the sentencing.

Victor: It's hard for a man to see his actions judged that way for the whole world to see. But I still can't see myself as a criminal. I really canít.

Nikki: That's because you're a good man. You just made a mistake, a serious mistake.

Victor: One I will never make again.

Nikki: I know you wonít.

Victor: I hope that you will never, ever have to defend me the way you did in that court.

Nikki: I don't either, but I did that because I wanted to, Victor. I spoke from the heart that day.

Victor: I know. I'm a lucky man.

Nikki: Well, I'm glad to hear that.

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Nikki: 'Cause I'm a lucky girl.

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Nikki: But I've been... ignored lately.

Victor: You know something? That's really criminal.

Nikki: Mm-hmm.

Victor: I mean, that is really criminal.

Nikki: Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. So are you pleading guilty or what?

Victor: Very.


Jill: Don't you think I've asked myself that same question a thousand times? Can Katherine and I bury the hatchet? Or do we just pretend to bury the past, and it festers under there like a cancer and eventually eats us alive? The trouble is, I haven't come up with an answer

Jack: Okay, so we're back to my question. Maybe that's what you're looking at, peeking out from behind the rock, the truth. You don't want to share your father with Katherine 'cause you don't much like Katherine.

Jill: Stop psychoanalyzing me. All these hidden motives are nonsense.

Jack: Why are you fighting this? Jill, you tell me you don't know why you're feeling what you're feeling. God forbid anyone should come up with an answer.

Jill: You're not a shrink, Jack.

Jack: Fine. You brought this up. Personally, I got problems of my own. Among them, I need your report on the talks in Atlanta on my desk today.

Jill: What are you talking about? I told you, the contracts are signed. The price points are where we want them. You don't need a report.

Jack: Wow, C.E.O. of this company doesn't mean quite what it used to. I got insubordination everywhere. I need a copy of the report for the records.

Jill: Fine, I will write you up something, okay?!

Jack: What?

Jill: What is so terrible about wanting to spend time with my father, time when we are not burdened with Katherineís drinking?

Jack: Or with Katherine at all.

Jill: Or with Katherine at all.

Jack: What if she never had another drop of alcohol, Jill, would that make you feel any better?

Jill: Not really.

Jack: Then let's stop talking about the drinking! It's a convenient scapegoat. It is not the real issue.

Jill: No, it isnít. Damn her! Damn her! Damn her! She had her chance, okay? She had a chance to be a mother to me, and she threw it away the day I was born. She had a chance to tell Arthur that he had a child, but, no, she didn't have the decency. She didn't have the courage. She was too afraid of the shame of admitting to her husband that she'd had an affair! And we paid for it, you know? And then after all these years, my father and I find our way back to one another... who the hell is she to want a piece of the action?!


Kay: Where is Jill?

Arthur: I assume she went back to work.

Kay: Oh, you assume?

Arthur: Well, she didn't say for sure.

Kay: Things didn't go well between the two of you?

Arthur: Katherine, she's carrying a lot of wounds from the past that have never healed.

Kay: Mm, I know that. I told you, our history has been very tortured, Arthur.

Arthur: No wonder it was so difficult when you discovered you were mother and daughter.

Kay: Hmm. She turned you down, didn't she? I mean, moving in here, making us all one big, happy family?

Arthur: She's filled with doubts, fears, concerns.

Kay: All of which, I'm sure, she blamed on me, no doubt. Oh, Arthur, I donít... I don't know if this is such a good idea. I have... I had qualms about it.

Arthur: Oh, you do? Well, you'd better forget about them. I had my bags sent from the club, and they should be arriving shortly.

Kay: You're going through with this? I mean, you're moving in here? You--you're going to make this happen?

Arthur: Mm-hmm. I told you, I can be a very persuasive man.

Kay: (Chuckles) so Jill gave you her blessing.

Arthur: Mm-hmm. She's gonna give it a try. But I'm not sure she's convinced that it's such a wonderful idea.

Kay: Join the club.

Arthur: Katherine, these qualms of yours, you know, I can call, have them turn right around and take my bags back to the hotel. Is that what you want, hmm?


Damon: What's going on?

Vanessa: Well, I just thought a little music might snap you out of it.

Damon: Snap me outta what?

Vanessa: I don't know. Whatever's got you so preoccupied?

Damon: Okay.

Vanessa: And if that doesn't do the trick, maybe this will.

Damon: Sh--um, oh.

Vanessa: Yeah, I thought that might get your attention.

Damon: Th-that-- that outfit would get any man's attention.

Vanessa: Well, lucky for you, one man is all I need. So you like?

Damon: Uh, y-yeah. I mean, what's not to like? You must be cold, though. Can I get, like, a blanket or something?

Vanessa: No, actually, I'm, um, quite warm. In fact, I'd say hot, even.

Damon: Yeah, I don't, um... I don't quite know what to say.

Vanessa: Well, then don't say anything. You promised me a rain check the other night. So I've come to collect.

Damon: Uh, uh, Vanessa, I--

Vanessa: Shh. Relax. And let me help you get rid of all this stress. I have a few tricks that are guaranteed to be fabulous tension relievers.

Damon: Oh, oh, baby, I am sure you do. You are a fabulous, exciting, beautiful woman, but I--

Vanessa: But what?

Damon: But not now, all right?

Vanessa: Okay, that's not the first time that you've said that to me lately. I'm starting to get a complex here.

Damon: It's nothing personal.

Vanessa: Oh, believe me, when a man turns a woman down, it's personal. Don't tell me you're playing hard to get. I mean, I thought we got past all that in Japan.

Damon: Um, that... yeah. That little, uh, dalliance in--in the forest.

Vanessa: A dalliance? I'm not sure that adequately describes it. You and I had enough heat to start a forest fire. So what's the matter, Damon? Afraid you might get burned?

Damon: I'm--I'm just not up for this right now.

Vanessa: Okay, Mr. Porter, you want to tell me who she is?


Danny: Phyllis, I know you're angry, and I know you're hurt. Hey, I'm none too pleased myself. I don't like being dictated to by my teenage son. And let me tell you something, when he arrives in Genoa City, we're gonna have a talk about this.

Phyllis: Just about that, nothing else.

Danny: As I mentioned, I'm gonna do my be--

Phyllis: No, it's not good enough.

Danny: If you will let me finish, please. I will do my best to persuade him to see you. Frankly, I think it would be good for him, having some contact with his mother.

Phyllis: Do you mean that, or are you just saying that so I get off your case?

Danny: Phyllis, I--

Phyllis: I mean, I donít... I don't know if I could trust you, really. I mean, Danny, when... when our son told you that he didn't want anything to do with me, I mean, what-- what did you do? I mean, did you just sit there and listen, or... well, there's my answer.

Chris: You are not being fair.

Phyllis: Oh, shut up.

Chris: Do you really think it's the right time to alienate me?

Danny: Phyllis, I'm trying to be reasonable. I really am. I said I would do what I can, and I meant it.

Phyllis: Well, that's not good enough. It's not good enough, I'm telling you. I mean, when he gets here, you have to work on softening his attitude. I mean, if we're together, and we can communicate--

Chris: So what, so he can see how much you've changed?

Phyllis: You know, I'm sorry, Christine, I... maybe you don't understand because you don't have children.

Chris: Huh.

Phyllis: Honestly, if you weren't the law--

Chris: What? Say it.

Phyllis: Please, Danny. Please, Danny.

Danny: I will, all right?

Phyllis: Okay, and if he says no?

Danny: I'll keep trying. But I'm not gonna force him. You don't want that kid to resent you even more.

Phyllis: I know, it's just--

Chris: Listen to what he's saying. It makes sense.

Phyllis: You have to come through for me. You have to. You have to; because I'm not just gonna stand on the sidelines helplessly while I'm told my son doesn't want to talk to me. And let me tell you something, Christine, if you come in between us, I swear to you--

Chris: Do you think making threats is gonna help your cause with me? Are you deluded?

Phyllis: Christine, you really don't want to mess with me where my son's concerned. You really don't want to do that.

Danny: All right, that's enough, okay? You've had your say. We get the message. Now just cool it.

Chris: Welcome home, Daniel.


Jack: Wow. Now that's what I call getting the inside out on the table where you can look at it.

Jill: Oh, God help me. I do sound like a spoiled child, don't I?

Jack: Jill, would you stop denying your feelings? Look, I-- I love Katherine to pieces. I think she's a terrific lady. And I don't want to take sides here, but I think you came by your resentment pretty honestly.

Jill: You do?

Jack: You were abandoned, Jill. And as if that isn't enough, my God, you meet Katherine, and you spend decades hating each other, fighting tooth and claw.

Jill: Hating her, ugly memories.

Jack: Okay, but you can't afford to fall into all the negativity. You can't, not now.

Jill: No, I guess I canít.

Jack: This man is gonna be moving in with you and Katherine. That's a given. Apparently, he already understands Katherineís potential for being a drunken pain in the neck. Look, maybe this is one episode. Maybe Katherine is past this phase, and she's onto being the normal, lovely Katherine we all know. In the meantime, your father has promised you you are going to be a part of his life no matter what.

Jill: So I should just take that at face value.

Jack: Take it and run, sweetheart.

Jill: And put a smile on my face.

Jack: And above all, learn to share with others.

Jill: You make it sound like I should be watching "Sesame Street."

Jack: (Chuckles) well, maybe you should.

Jill: Wow, thank you. You were exactly what I needed.

Jack: Glad I could be there for you.


Kay: Oh, Arthur, Arthur, I-I do not wish to put a damper on all of this, but running into Esther today brought back so many old memories.

Arthur: Not good ones, I gather.

Kay: No, not good ones. The enmity and divisiveness that so plagued my relationship with Jill, I don't want you dragged into all of that.

Arthur: You're not dragging me into anything. This is what I wanted.

Kay: But you don't know the history--

Arthur: How bad things have been in the past between you and Jill? She says the same thing.

Kay: Well, for once, I agree with her.

Arthur: Katherine, I don't think you understand how much it means to me--

Kay: No, Arthur, Arthur, I do understand. And I do not want you to be disappointed. And I so fear with this arrangement, that will be a very big, big factor.

Arthur: Well, that's one thing that you and your daughter seem to share, this innate pessimism.

Kay: And you remain the soul, the very soul of optimism, Arthur.

Arthur: Well, somebody has to balance out the two of you.

Kay: In other words, you are not giving up. Is that what you're saying to me?

Arthur: I am never giving up on you, Katherine. Don't you know that by now?

Arthur: This is the beginning of a great adventure, our great adventure. I've waited for this most of my life. Katherine? Kay? Now do I let them bring my luggage here, or not, hmm?

Kay: You're such a wonderfully persistent man, Arthur.

Arthur: (Laughs)

Kay: My God.

Arthur: (Laughs)


Nikki: Oh, I don't know what I would have done without you for a whole year.

Victor: You would've managed.

Nikki: Yeah, I would have, but I don't want to manage. I want to be happy with you.

Victor: I know. And you will be.

Nikki: Mmm, I hope so. This family really needs time to heal, you know.

Victor: I know. How are Nicholas and Sharon doing, by the way?

Nikki: Fine.

Victor: You don't sound convincing.

Nikki: Well, you know, it's the usual tensions.

Victor: You're not at odds with Sharon again, are you?

Nikki: No. No, not at all. Actually, it's quite the opposite. I'm helping her.

Victor: How are you helping her?

Nikki: Just by being there for her. She's going through something very traumatic. I'm just trying to be there for her.

Victor: Sounds serious.

Nikki: Well, it is serious. Nobody really knows exactly what's going on with her. I mean, she's practically unglued half the time.

Victor: Hmm. Sorry to hear that. How does Nicholas deal with it?

Nikki: As well as can be expected. He has questions. Everybody has questions.

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Nikki: I think the best thing, though, is to just let me handle it.

Victor: In other words, you're telling me to stay the hell out of it.

Nikki: Well, if you want to be helpful. You'll have to admit sometimes, darling, things get... a little complicated if you're involved.

Victor: You're right. Considering how my son feels about me and I about him, it's best to stay out of it, I guess. Not to change the subject, but when are Jabot and Jack Abbott coming to get their pound of flesh from me?

Nikki: What do you mean, a damage suit?

Victor: Sure. After he turned down my $75 million offer, I assumed that he would come sue for damages.

Nikki: Darling, I'm not at liberty to talk about that.

Victor: So you have no idea?

Nikki: Victor, come on. You know the rules. Anyway, you shouldn't even be thinking about that right now. You have to fulfill the conditions of your probation before you go on to anything.

Victor: Don't worry. I already have a plan. I don't want to go to prison. Everything will be all right, I promise you. It'll be all right.


Brad: Hey.

Jack: Hey, go away.

Brad: Come on, Jjack.

Jack: No, don't you "come on, Jack" me. You're the first person I told about rejecting Victor's offer. You understood why I couldn't tell Ashley and Nikki about it, because they wouldn't go along with it. They have a big soft spot in their heart for Victor. But you and I both knew he owes us a hell of a lot more than $75 million! You were on board! Suddenly the women start making noise, the majority goes the other way, and what do you do? You jump on the bandwagon. What is it with you, you can't stand not being on the winning team?

Brad: Go on, get it all out. You'll feel better.

Jack: Well, let's hear it. Let's hear your excuse, Bradley.

Brad: Jack, by the time you told me about the offer, you'd already rejected it. So I let it go. Since then I've thought about it.

Jack: Yeah, since then, you had an earful from your wife.

Brad: You know I don't get my opinions from Ash.

Jack: You know what? Just get out of here. I'll get over this, 'cause eventually we have to work together to save this company. But, Bradley, you two-faced me, and I'm angry as hell about it. Now get lost.


Vanessa: I asked you a question, Damon. Who is she?

Damon: All right, look. I'm not gonna lie to you.

Vanessa: So I was right then. There is someone else.

Vanessa: You might have had the decency to tell me before I was standing half naked in your living room.

Damon: How was I to know you were gonna go slip into that thing?

Vanessa: Oh, something tells me you knew long before I got here tonight. So much for thinking we had something special.

Damon: I didn't go looking for this to happen.

Vanessa: No. No, you never do. You never have to. They come to you. I should have expected it anyway. Players are all alike.

Damon: Now that ain't fair.

Vanessa: Why, because you never promised you'd be faithful, or you never actually said you'd be committed to me?

Damon: Look, you need to believe me. I didn't mean to hurt you.

Vanessa: So is she anyone I know?

Damon: You know, Vanessa, I don't think that we should-- (doorbell rings)

Damon: Excuse me.

Vanessa: (Whispers) just let me get out of the way first.

Phyllis: Hi. Can you just give me a hug? It's been the most horrific day.


Arthur: How long has it been since you went horseback riding?

Kay: Well, good heavens, I hate to think.

Arthur: All those gorgeous animals down in the stables and you're just paying people to exercise them, getting no personal pleasure whatsoever.

Kay: Arthur, Arthur, please, please. My riding days are over, dear heart.

Arthur: Oh, how do you know?

Kay: Are you making this a challenge?

Arthur: Well, I became rather a good horseman myself. I'm game if you are.

Jill: Hello. Is this a private conversation or can anyone join in?

Arthur: Oh, Jill. How good to have you home.

Jill: I don't mean to interrupt here.

Arthur: Oh, no, no, no, you're not interrupting, is she, Katherine?

Kay: No, no, of course not. What's to interrupt? We were just fantasizing.

Arthur: Fantasizing, my foot. I was telling your mother she ought to try riding again, and I would like to go with her.

Jill: Isn't that interesting? I told you the same thing myself not very long ago, do you remember?

Kay: Well, yes, I... yes, I believe you did, yes.

Arthur: There, you see? Great minds. Now why do I get the feeling that neither of you is exactly comfortable in our proposed new arrangements?

Jill: No, no, no, no. I am fine, really.

Arthur: Then you weren't too enthusiastic earlier.

Jill: Yeah, but I said yes, didn't I? And I've thought about it since we talked, and I've decided to give it all of my enthusiasm.

Arthur: Now listen, I know that both of you see the potential for disaster. So I am making it my personal responsibility to make certain that doesn't happen.

Kay: No, no, no, no. Arthur, I really don't think you should do that. You're taking far too much responsibility on your own shoulders. In case this doesn't work out, you mustn't blame yourself.

Jill: I agree 100%.

Arthur: Now listen to that. Our first few moments together and you're already agreeing about something. Will wonders never cease? (Doorbell rings)

Arthur: There's my baggage. Ah... last chance to change your minds.

Kay: No, of course not.

Jill: Go ahead, bring it in.

Arthur: All right.

Jill: Why are you looking at me like that?


Victor: I've been a very fortunate man, you know?

Nikki: Hmm.

Victor: I've created opportunities for myself that I wish others could have. For a long time, I thought if I gave those opportunities to my kids, it'd be enough. But it isnít. I think I can do better than that.

Nikki: Really?

Victor: Yeah. That same energy that I used to turn Newman Enterprises into a powerhouse...

Victor: I'm going to use that to make the world a better place.

Nikki: Well... I'm intrigued to hear the details.

Victor: I'm working on them as we speak. You'll hear them in time. You know what I realized on the long walks I took?

Nikki: What?

Victor: How much you have meant to me.

Nikki: Oh, darling. You have brought more to me probably... than I have to you.

Nikki: A long time ago you took a young, lost girl and taught her to dream of a greater future.

Victor: Let's see if I can do the same for other people. I'm working on something. Maybe I can set right what I did wrong, you know? For all the people that I've hurt, maybe I can help some. I certainly am gonna try.

Nikki: You've already done that many, many times. Just ask the people who love you.

Nikki: I love you.


Brad: Jackie, you're getting a little melodramatic about this.

Jack: You know, Bradley, when you've got knives sticking out of your back, you tend to feel a tad persecuted.

Brad: Oh, come on, we don't always get what we want. You know that. The only reason you're making such a stink about this is because it involves Victor. If this was any other matter where you'd made your case and gotten voted down 5 to 1, you'd shrug your shoulders and walk away.

Jack: Well, according to your wife, I've always been a sore loser. What is it she said? "Like a little boy who doesn't get his way."

Brad: Ash does know you better than I do.

Jack: Well, of course, she said that when she was pretty angry. I had just put the hair straightener back on the active projects list.

Brad: Really?

Jack: Don't tell me, you're gonna go along with the girls on this one, too?

Brad: Oh, wow. You are a sore loser.

Jack: The hair straightener has nothing to do with Victor. It's a good idea. It shouldn't have died.

Brad: Yeah, but without Ash on board--

Jack: We'll just have to move along without her.

Brad: It's a long shot.

Jack: So was putting a man on the moon.

Brad: You're sure you're not doing this just to get back at your sister?

Jack: Yes, I'm sure! Bradley, we have reason to believe it will work. And very much like this civil suit for damages against Newman, with time and patience, it could be very lucrative.

Brad: Maybe.

Jack: Oh, ye of little vision.

Brad: Jack, listen. You just broke up with Phyllis. You're going through a rough time. Maybe it isn't such a good idea for you to be making any big decisions right now.


Phyllis: Oh, it was the most horrific day. You wouldn't even believe it.

Vanessa: Wait a minute. You've got to be kidding me. Phyllis Abbott? This other woman you're involved with is Jack's wife?

Phyllis: Uh, well, not for long actually. And what is she doing here?

Damon: Vanessa came by--

Phyllis: You know what? Forget it. I understand. I get it.

Damon: You get what?

Phyllis: Well, you know, it's the trench coat routine. I've done it. Except it seems like it was a bust.

Vanessa: Excuse me, Mrs. Abbott?

Phyllis: Well, you know, you're in your skivvies and Damon here hasn't gotten rid of an inch of clothing, so I'm assuming you struck out.

Vanessa: Who do you think you are exactly? And what gives you the right--

Damon: Vanessa, Vanessa, Vanessa, Van-- maybe for now you should go.

Vanessa: Me? Oh, no. You and I have some unfinished business to discuss and I was here first.

Phyllis: Well, you know what they say.

Vanessa: No. Enlighten me, please. What do they say?

Phyllis: Out with the old, in with the new. Too old for breakouts?


Kay: Now, Jill, are you really on board with this? Because if you're not, and you allow that dear, sweet man to move in here--

Jill: (Whispers) of course I'm on board with this. Do you think I would lie to him and set him up for a disappointment? The question is--are you willing to make a commitment to give up the bottle so you don't drive him screaming into the night?

Kay: Well, he knows exactly who I am.

Jill: He does not know who you are. (Door closes)

Arthur: It's all there- my life standing in your doorway, ladies. I hereby put my future in your hands, and I will do everything to make our lives together a loving, warm... and happy one.

Jill: Oh, I so want this to work.

Kay: Yes, we will try very hard not to disappoint you, Arthur, or each other, right, Jill?

Jill: Welcome home, Dad.

Arthur: Ahh.


Jack: You want to help? You figure out a way to get this company out of a sea of red ink and moving competitively forward on a measly $75 million that you agreed to. I'd like to see that on paper.

Brad: I'm already working on it. Listen, I hate Newman with a passion, too, never mind what he did for Ash. There's nothing I'd like more than to see the guy pushing a shopping cart filled with dirty plastic bags down the street some day. Nothing would make me happier. Having said that, we have to stop short of shooting ourselves in the foot because we hate the man.

Jack: Are you finished?

Brad: Yeah. I'm sorry about Phyllis. You guys were great together. You're sure it's over?

Brad: Okay. Just thought I'd ask.


Vanessa: Damon Porter, have you lost your mind?!

Damon: Vanessa, calm down.

Vanessa: What are you thinking?

Damon: I'm thinking we could talk about this some other time.

Vanessa: No, now. You just finished telling me how close you and Jack have become.

Damon: So?

Vanessa: So? What do you think the man's gonna think when he finds out you and his wife have been--

Phyllis: Actually, we're separated, Vanessa, which is really none of your business. So maybe you should butt out.

Vanessa: None of my business? Look, I'm not just some ditzy tramp using Damon to boost her ego.

Phyllis: Oh, okay. You just dress like one.

Vanessa: You don't know a damn thing about me or the bond that Damon and I share. Do you know what? I'm just wasting my breath. You two deserve each other.

Damon: Now I just wish you'd give me an opportunity to explain about Phyllis before you... I'm sorry. I didn't want you to find out like this.

Vanessa: Yeah, I'm sorry, too. I'm sorry that you didn't have better sense to make a better choice. You could've had any woman you wanted, Damon, and you picked the boss's wife? Well, I hope she's worth it, 'cause it's not a very smart choice at all. It's not smart at all.
