Jill: We're still adjusting.

Arthur: Mm-hmm. Well, now that I'm living here, do you know what I'd like for us, huh?

Kay: No.

Arthur: To spend many more nights like this-- and days, too-- doing things together as a family.

Jill: What could we do together that we would all enjoy?

Arthur: Well, what about the symphony, the art galleries, the theater? Genoa City has become quite the cosmopolitan center since I was here last.

Kay: Oh, I suppose it has, Arthur.

Arthur: And I was really surprised by all the changes on Lakeshore Drive and Chestnut Street, not to mention all the lovely restaurants.

Kay: One of which we should be at now.

Arthur: Now, Katherine, we can dine at the Colnanade room anytime. But a picnic here on your terrace, now what could be better?

Jill: I don't think that picnics are quite mother's style.

Kay: Well, you just speak for yourself, Jill. I don't hear you singing praises of a frankfurter.

Jill: On the contrary, I'm really getting into the spirit of this.

Arthur: Good for you.

Jill: No, as a matter of fact, I want you to sit here, relax and enjoy yourself, 'cause you've already done all the hard work, refereeing between Katherine and me. I'll finish the grilling.

Arthur: A you sure?

Jill: I am absolutely sure. Just relax, and I'll holler if I need you.

Arthur: Nothing to it. She's quite a girl, isn't she?

Kay: Real pip.


Chris: Lauren posted $100,000 cash to get your brother out of jail? There are obviously some major details which I need you to fill me in on.

Michael: (Chuckles) oh, details? Details. Well, your loving Paul-- he tried to use Lauren to trap Kevin into confessing his sins. Kevin thought Lauren was falling in love with him.

Chris: Are you serious?

Michael: He thought, he thought. Lauren tried to use it against him. Then it all went south. Kevin ended up almost killing himself in front of Lauren. By the way, she felt guilty, and I might add, rightly so. She finally realized that Kevin isn't just, you know, Satan incarnate. He's a screwed up kid with emotional scars. And she wants to try and help straighten him out.

Chris: Which hasn't happened.

Michael: Apparently not. As I said, Kevinís not just out in the country visiting friends. He is gone. Unless I find him somehow, he's not gonna show up for his trial.

Chris: So in a way, Laurenís help backfired.

Michael: If you're saying he would have been better off locked up in jail, I don't know which is the lesser of two evils, Chris. I do know that eventually Kevin will end up behind bars, no matter what. I mean, if it's not today, it's gonna be next year, the year after next. He just can't stay out of trouble.

Chris: And now poor Michaelís having brotherly feelings he wishes he wasn't having.

Michael: No. I tell you what I was having. I was having a relatively peaceful existence. Sure, I was facing the suspension of my law license for helping Victor Newman "engage" in bribery, but, you know, that pales in comparison to having a brother on a crime spree. And don't-- don't give me that look. I didn't tell you any specifics.

Chris: Hey, please, I don't want to know.

Michael: I mean, I have the judge making living with me a condition of his bail... you just reminded me of why I took off and left the whole concept of family behind.

Chris: Don't pretend to be some big cynic. As much trouble as this kid obviously is, I think it's nice that you've taken him on as your project.

Michael: Yes, currently a failed project.

Chris: You can't live his life for him. This sounds weird after everything we've been through, but where are you from? You've never really told me.

Michael: (Laughs) that's right. Detroit. Detroit.

Chris: Grosse Pointe?

Michael: Oh, hardly.

Chris: Any contact with your parents?

Michael: Zero. My father... no one, probably not even himself, knows where he is. And, uh, my mother, well, she's probably still there. Probably hooking up with all kinds of unsavory men, you know, making all the wrong choices, causing pain to anyone who's foolish enough to care for her.

Chris: Ouch.

Michael: The woman never made a right move in her life.

Chris: She had you.

Michael: I was lucky. I got out in time. Mm. I got a break. Kevin never got a break not one. I guess, you know, it's-- it's kind of survivor's guilt. Why was I so fortunate, and he wasn't? Why?


Kay: Is it too late to order pizza?

Arthur: Oh, come on. Lighten up, Katherine. Now trust me. We're going to have a wonderful evening.

Kay: You always do that, don't you?

Arthur: Do what?

Kay: Put a positive spin on every situation.

Arthur: I suppose I do look at the glass as half full. It's just the way I am.

Kay: Hmm. Do you ever get angry? And I mean, really angry, Arthur.

Arthur: Believe me, Katherine, I can become very harsh when it's called for, as many who have come before me in court can verify.

Kay: Then you weren't always a lenient judge?

Arthur: Oh, good lord, no. Fair, I hope, but each case was different. Some called for harsher measures, and others called for giving the defendant a break.

Kay: Just as you've done with Jill.

Arthur: Jill is not a defendant, Katherine. She's my daughter. She's had a difficult life. I admire what she's accomplished.

Kay: Then you think I'm too rough on her?

Arthur: I think you're both too rough on each other.

Kay: Well, it's very hard to let go of all of those years of hatred.

Arthur: Yes, but you know what they say. There's a fine line between love and hate.

Kay: (Chuckles) oh, that clichť excuses a multitude of sins.

Arthur: Tell me, Katherine.

Kay: Hmm?

Arthur: Have things always been that bad between you two?

Kay: Well, lately, it's getting a bit better. It's because I have a clearer understanding of why my daughter is the way she is.

Arthur: I still find it so amazing. You two had a relationship for decades, and yet you didn't have the slightest inkling that--

Kay: What, that I gave Jill up for adoption all those years ago?

Arthur: Mm-hmm. The odds of that must have been astronomical.

Kay: Which is why it came as such a shock to both of us.

Arthur: It had to have been fate, Katherine, or divine providence.

Kay: (Chuckles) someone up there, Arthur, has a very warped sense of humor.

Arthur: And the three of us finding each other this late in the game, it's--

Kay: Oh, please. I know, I know how desperately you want this living arrangement to work out for all of us. I know that.

Arthur: Yes, I do. And it will work out, I promise you.

Arthur: But one of you has to make the first move.

Kay: But why does it have to be me?

Arthur: Because you're older and wiser, my love. Now look, I'm going to go see if I can rustle up something to go with our hot dogs, all right? Now meantime, why don't you go over there, say something nice to our daughter? You may find it's not as difficult as you imagine. Go on.

Jill: Can I help you with something?

Kay: Just observing.

Jill: I'm sure you could do it better.

Kay: I did not say that, Jill.

Jill: You didn't have to say it. I know how your mind works.

Kay: Why are you being so snippy with me? I am just trying to be friendly.

Jill: What did you have some sudden epiphany? A voice came out of the sky and said, "be nice to Jill"?

Kay: Isn't this typical? Every time I try to be pleasant, you say something ugly.

Jill: Then maybe we shouldn't talk, huh?

Kay: Well, then maybe we shouldn't talk.

Jill: Good idea. Ah! Oh, oh, oh, my scarf! Fire! Katherine, help me! Do something, Katherine! Katherine, help me! Oh, not vodka, you idiot! You're making it worse! Water! Water, Katherine, hurry! Katherine, hurry! Oh! Oh! Hurry, hurry, hurry! Good, good, good. Good, it's out now.

Kay: Would you rather burn to death?!

Jill: It's out, stop it! Stop it!

Kay: But I don't know how.

Jill: You don't know how? Oh, I'll show you how! I'll show you how.

Kay: Jill, I cannot shut it off.

Jill: There, right there! That's how!

Arthur: What is going on here?! Have you lost your minds?

Jill: She started it!

Kay: He wants us to do things together, Jill.

Jill: That's right, he does.

Arthur: Hey, whoa!

All: (Yelling)

Arthur: Whoopee!

Kay: No!

Jill: No!

Kay: No!


Ashley: I'm gonna ask you one more time-- why are you acting this way?

Brad: Is it really such a mystery, Ash?

Ashley: No, I guess it isnít.

Brad: Then it's probably no mystery how victor's feeling right about now.

Ashley: You think Nikkiís told him?

Brad: You're the one who insisted he have this information.

Ashley: You know why, Brad. We've been over it and over it and over it.

Brad: Well, as of tonight, your wish will be granted. Victor will know that Abby-- my sweet little girl-- is his biological daughter, that there's another Newman heir and that you're the person responsible.

Ashley: I get it, okay? Victor's gonna be angry with me.

Brad: And with Nikki and with Jack and with all of us who knew and wished to God it wasn't true.

Ashley: Brad, I don't understand what's going on with you.

Brad: You know what? I don't want to talk about it anymore. I'm going to bed. A sleeping pill sounds great right about now.


Nikki: What are you accusing me of?

Victor: I asked you a very simple question.

Nikki: I don't know what to make of you. You're acting so strange. I worry about you.

Victor: I guess you worry about many things these days, don't you?

Nikki: What does that mean?

Victor: Why would you have this meeting with me instead of Ashley? Do you know what she wanted to tell me?

Nikki: Did she say she had something to tell you?

Victor: Didn't she?

Nikki: I don't know.

Victor: Uh-huh. In other words, you don't know what the point of this meeting is all about.

Nikki: Why are you looking at me like that?

Victor: I'm going to my study.

Nikki: No, Victor, we have to discuss something.

Victor: We don't have to discuss a damn thing tonight.

Nikki: We need to!

Victor: We need to? What about what I need? What I don't need is any more delusions, deceptions and lies. I've had enough of that to last me a lifetime.

Nikki: Well, Ashley, I tried. I tried.


Jill: I think this may be the best hot dog I've ever had in my whole life.

Kay: I agree. I don't even like hot dogs.

Arthur: Now you have to admit isn't this a lot better than going out to a restaurant?

Kay: If you're going to suggest a group hug, Arthur, I don't want to throw up.

Jill: You guys, I'm so sorry.

Kay: Hmm, sorry about what?

Jill: For spoiling your evening.

Arthur: You haven't spoiled anything.

Jill: No, really? What about that romantic dinner you had planned?

Arthur: Well, the Colonnade room isn't going anywhere.

Kay: It's my fault.

Jill: How is it your fault?

Kay: Well, darling, you had your heart set on spending some quality time with your father, and I insisted that we go out.

Jill: Yeah, but you had every right to go out.

Kay: I could have been more understanding.

Jill: No, it was because I was jealous is the reason that it happened.

Arthur: Just listen to you two. You can turn anything into an argument.

Kay: Well, it's just force of habit, Arthur.

Arthur: Well, has it ever occurred to either one of you to try to break that habit? Has it?

Jill: No. You know what?

Arthur: What?

Jill: I am gonna go turn in--

Kay: Jill--

Jill: And give you two some time alone.

Kay: No, no, no. Darling, please don't go. I mean, after all, we have been getting along for the last 20 minutes.

Jill: Well, have you heard of too much of a good thing?

Kay: Well, I guess we are sort of nauseating, aren't we?

Jill: Yeah, well, don't worry. It won't last.

Arthur: Oh, don't be too sure of that. I may just be a very good influence on you, young girl.

Jill: Oh, Dad. You already are.

Kay: Go ahead, Jill. I won't tell anyone.


Chris: Michael, I will do what I can, but it's up to your brother. He needs to start dealing with reality.

Michael: Yeah, especially in our computerized world. Running off is such a low-odds move. They'll catch him sooner or later.

Chris: Any idea where he might go?

Michael: None.

Chris: Not home?

Michael: No. That's the last place, believe me, the absolute last place he'd go. That'd be like sticking his hands in fire. No, I think he headed towards the Mexican border-- southwest.

Chris: Too bad.

Michael: Well... thanks for listening to me. I wish we were still partners.

Chris: Take care.

Michael: Okay.


(Telephone rings)

Woman: Hello.

Kevin: Hi, Mom.

Woman: Who is this?

Kevin: It's Kevin. Remember me?

Woman: Kevin.

Kevin: I, uh, I just thought I'd let you know... I'm on my way home.

Woman: You're what? Kevin?

Woman: Highway cruiser service to Gurnee, Evanston, Chicago, Gary, South Bend, Toledo and Detroit now departing from gate 2.

Kevin: Hang on, I'm coming.

Woman: Kevin. Oh, dear lord.


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

Sharon: It's not quite all over with, Larry. I need another favor-- a big one.


Chris: I'm Christine. It is really great to see you again.


Victor: How many people know about Abbyís parentage? Does the whole town know? .
