[Colleen remembers press conference.]

Woman: Is it true you were discovered at a restaurant?

J.T.: Yeah, I was at a Valentine’s Day party.

Woman: So you were there with a date?

(Camera shutters clicking)

J.T.: Um, no.

Man: So you're not dating anyone? (Clicking continues)

J.T.: No, uh, no, I'm not.


Colleen: Stupid press conference. I wish I had never gone to L.A. in the first place. But it's too late for that now.

Brad: Hey, honey. I thought you were staying at Sierra's until tomorrow.

Colleen: Oh, I decided to come home early. Is there any juice?


Nikki: Has he checked in at all this morning, Connie? And he's left no messages? All right, well, if you do hear from him, please have him call the ranch. Thank you.

Sharon: Victor?

Nikki: His office. Nobody's heard from him. He didn't come home last night.

Sharon: How did you sleep?

Nikki: How do you think? Between worrying about my husband and reliving that nightmare in the sewer, I've probably slept an hour.

Sharon: Yeah, same here. I had horrible nightmares, huge rats chasing me through drainage tunnels. And all I could see when I opened my eyes was that body, decomposed and the face eaten away by rats.

Nikki: Sharon, please, stop. I'm trying to forget about it.

Sharon: I hope you know how much I appreciate your going with Larry and me and not letting me deal with it on my own.

Nikki: Well, if I had known what I was getting into, I probably wouldn't have.

Sharon: It took forever for me to scrub the filth off of me, not to mention the nauseating stench.

Nikki: I totally ruined my boots. I had to throw everything out that I was wearing.

Sharon: Well, at least it's over. It's done. We saw the body.

Nikki: And you're sure it was Cameron Kirsten, with the condition the body was in?

Sharon: The clothes, yes. They were what he was wearing that night at the motel. That much I could tell. It had to be Cameron.

Nikki: So you're totally convinced?

Sharon: Yes. Even with the condition of the body, who else could it be?

Nikki: Okay, good. That's a consolation. At least you can put that fear that he's alive behind you.

Sharon: Those visions-- they just seemed so real. I mean, seeing Cameron’s face through the window and then right here in your living room.

Nikki: Sharon, they weren't real. We know that now. You have got to do something about these delusions.

Sharon: Like what?

Nikki: Go to a therapist. Go to somebody who will help you. 'Cause you've gotta put your life back together, starting with your marriage.

Sharon: Yeah, Nick has been so sweet and just so patient with me and not trying to pin me down on what I've been going through.

Nikki: Well, even he has his limits. And don't forget, Detective Weber is still suspicious of you.

Sharon: Like he would let me forget.

Nikki: Well, you're not out of the woods. He will remain suspicious as long as you keep acting so spooked.

Sharon: At least no one will ever find the body.

Nikki: Don't kid yourself. Eventually, somebody's gonna find it.

Sharon: Well, even if they do, they could never pin it on me. I mean, not in the condition it's in.

Nikki: I pray you're right.

Sharon: I just have to convince myself somehow that these visions are all in my mind and move on with my life.

Nikki: You know what, Sharon? Don't talk about it, just do it, please. Because from here on out, I have to worry about my own problems.


(Cell phone rings) (Ring)

Danny: Hey, Raul. I was just about to call ya. So are we on for this morning?

Raul: You tell me. Are you sure you have time?

Danny: Well, I'll make time. How about a half-hour?

Raul: Perfect. Hey, sorry. Listen, I gotta go. Thanks a lot. I'll talk to you later, okay?

Danny: Count on it.

Brittany: Hey. Guess who I found downstairs.

Raul: Hey, you're back.

J.T.: Yeah. Did you forget I was coming home this morning, man?

Raul: You kidding me? I've been counting the minutes since you left, sweetie.

J.T.: Liar.

Raul: How was California? Why aren't you tan?

J.T.: Are you kidding? It was nonstop. I barely had a chance to catch my breath.

Raul: But you had fun, though, right?

J.T.: Time of my life, man.

Raul: Awesome.

J.T.: Let me put my bags in my room, and I'll tell you all about it.

Raul: I'll give you a hand.

J.T.: All right, thanks.

Raul: Hey, baby.

Brittany: Hey.

J.T.: Hey, get the heavy one.


Brad: I wasn't expecting you back so early.

Colleen: Oh, is that a problem?

Brad: Of course that's not a problem. Why would you even ask that?

Colleen: I don't know. I mean, things have been kinda tense between you and Ashley.

Brad: And that makes you uncomfortable.

Colleen: No, I just, you know, I don't want to be in the way.

Brad: Be in the way? Honey, you are never in the way. Okay? I don't want you to think that for a second.

Brad: What's going on with Ash and me... well, I don't know where that's going. But it has nothing to do with you. We are both so glad you could be here with us.

Colleen: Thanks, Dad.

Brad: Let's talk about something else.

Colleen: Okay, like...?

Brad: Like, um, how was your evening with Sierra? Did you guys have fun?

Colleen: Hmm. Uh...

Brad: Honey? Colleen, what's wrong?

Colleen: Everything, Daddy. Everything.


J.T. : We're about to record the single, right? And then Shiloh tells me as soon as we're finished, we gotta go straight back down to her office because they set up a press conference to introduce me to the media.

Raul: Shut up. Get outta here.

J.T.: I'm serious, man. There were photographers and reporters all asking me a bunch of questions. It was crazy. It was, like, "whose life is this anyway?"

Raul: Hey, did you see any celebrities? Tell us.

J.T.: A ton. Like, guess who was in the hotel lobby when I first got there. You're gonna love this one.

Raul: Who?

J.T.: Brittany, you okay?

Brittany: Yeah, I'm fine. So who'd you see at the hotel?

J.T.: You know what? Enough about my trip what have you guys been up to, huh?

Brittany: No, I want to hear all about L.A.

J.T.: To tell you the truth, it's really not that big a deal, honestly.

Brittany: I'm a big girl, J.T. You don't have to worry about sparing my feelings.

J.T.: I know. I-I just thought maybe you wouldn't want--

Brittany: What, that I might be jealous? I'm a little envious, maybe. Well, who wouldn't want to be whisked off to Hollywood and have a chance at stardom? But I have to face the facts-- that's just not in the cards for me anymore.

J.T.: Oh, come on, Brittany, you don't know that.

Brittany: No, its cool, J.T., Really. I've come to terms with it, accepted the fact that my singing career is finished. That doesn't mean I can't still be happy for you.

Brittany: Wow, I'm a little worn out from that walk. I think I'm gonna go to my room and lie down for a little while. Welcome home, J.T.


Brad: Honey, I'm not sure I follow you. Did something happen with you and Sierra?

Colleen: No. It's not about Sierra.

Brad: Then what is it about?

Colleen: Just forget it, okay? I don't want to get into it. It's not important.

Brad: I can't do that. I'm your Dad. I'm genetically programmed to worry about you. Why don't you get it off your chest? Come on, sweetheart. I'm here to listen.

Colleen: No, I-- I don't want to get into it.

Brad: But there is something bothering you. Is it Lily, one of your other friends?

Colleen: No, Dad.

Brad: Oh, wait a minute. It's J.T.

Brad: Did you two have a fight?

Colleen: Um, it's not like that.

Brad: Well, what is it like? Are you having second thoughts about not going to L.A. with him?

Colleen: I'm having a lot of second thoughts.

Brad: Why?

Colleen: I'm just not sure we're on the same path anymore.

Brad: Because he signed the record contract?

Colleen: Yeah. I mean, this is a huge opportunity for him. He has so much potential.

Brad: But it frightens you?

Colleen: A little. Okay, maybe a lot. And I know I should be happy for him. I am. What if he forgets me?

Brad: Oh, honey. After everything you two have been through? I can't imagine that's going to happen.

Colleen: I wish I couldn’t.

Brad: What you're feeling is normal. It's natural you'd have doubts and insecurities. You know, there's a major thing happening in J.T.'s life. But, baby, he loves you. I'm sure of that. Did I say something wrong?

Colleen: No.

Brad: Well, why are you crying, honey?

Colleen: 'Cause what if it all falls apart, you know? What if he's out there in L.A., and he's having the time of his life, and I'm--I'm just stuck here?

Brad: Okay, listen, if that's how you're feeling, are you sure it's too late for you to get on a plane and go meet him?

Colleen: Yeah. I'm sure. I didn't realize this would be so hard for me. I mean, I'm glad he's doing this, I'm glad I pushed him to get him where he is, but I'm just so afraid of losing him.

Brad: Baby, give it a chance, all right? Don't let J.T.'s trip make you insecure.

Colleen: No, Dad, it's too late for that. It's too late for a lot of things.

Brad: Colleen, what are you talking about?

Ashley: Hi. Am I interrupting?

Colleen: No, Dad and I are just about talked out.


Sharon: I still can't believe Victor hasn't contacted you.

Nikki: Considering the mood he was in the last time I saw him, I'm not surprised.

Sharon: Maybe he just needs time to digest the news.

Nikki: Sharon, how do you digest that you suddenly have a 6-year-old daughter that you thought belonged to somebody else, and that everybody's been lying to you for years?

Sharon: Well, I still say, if he's angry, it should be with Ashley, not with you.

Nikki: Well, I'm his wife. I should have told him.

Sharon: Even though Ashley begged you not to?

Nikki: If Victor can't expect honesty from the woman he's married to, who can he expect it from?

Sharon: Nikki, don't beat yourself up about this. You did what you thought was best. You were trying to protect him.

Nikki: How do I convince him of that? I just wish that I knew what he was thinking, how he was handling this. Maybe he doesn't even want to talk to me again.

Sharon: Just don't talk like that, okay? I'm sure he'll be home soon.

Nikki: I'm almost afraid to face him.

Sharon: At least then, you'll know what he's thinking.

Nikki: Yeah, and whether or not I still have a marriage.


J.T.: That was real smooth, wasn't it? What the hell was I thinking, going on and on about L.A. to Brittany?

Raul: You were excited about your trip. You wanted to share it with us. Don't worry about it.

J.T.: How's she doing?

Raul: The same. You know, I've been trying to get her to sing again.

J.T.: Any luck?

Raul: Not yet. But help is on the way.

J.T.: What do you mean, help is on the way? What are you talking about?

Raul: Ever heard of Danny Romalotti?

J.T.: Yeah, sure. What's he got to do with anything?

Raul: I met him at the coffeehouse yesterday, and he offered to talk to Brittany, see if he can get her to pick up a microphone again.

J.T.: Really?

Raul: Yeah.

J.T.: That's great.

Raul: We'll see. You know, she told me that she doesn't want to get back on stage 'cause she feels repulsive.

J.T.: That's ridiculous, man.

Raul: Oh, I know that, and you know that. Problem is, we gotta get her to realize it, too.

J.T.: Yeah.

Raul: Hey, you mind if we get outta here?

J.T.: No, why?

Raul: Romalotti's gonna be here any second. I want to give him some time alone to talk to Brittany.

J.T.: Yeah, that's cool. That's cool. Have you eaten breakfast yet?

Raul: No. You wanna grab something?

J.T.: Yeah, let's go. Tell you about the rest of my trip.

Raul: Cool.

J.T.: You're buying, right?

Raul: You're dreaming.

J.T.: Seriously, man. In L.A., I didn't pay for anything.

Raul: Well, welcome home.

J.T.: You're so cheap.

Raul: You got your wallet, right?


Ashley: Here you go.

Brad: Thanks.

Ashley: Did you talk to Colleen?

Brad: Well, I tried. She left, said she had some studying to do at the library.

Ashley: She seemed really upset.

Brad: I don't know. I mean, she's suddenly very insecure about J.T. I don't get it.

Ashley: These could be some rough times for her, poor thing.

Brad: Yeah, watching her boyfriend become a celebrity, having to share him. It's never easy having to share someone you love. Where were you last night, Ash?

Ashley: You're wondering if I was with Victor.

Brad: Well, you talked to him for the first time since he found out about Abby.

Ashley: Yeah, we talked.

Brad: And??

Ashley: And then drove around for a long time trying to sort through my feelings. God, Brad, when I made the decision I did, why the hell didn't I realize how complicated it could be?

Brad: I have to ask, Ash, how did he react?


Nikki: Sharon, I hope you understand that from now on my hands are gonna be full dealing with my own life.

Sharon: Of course.

Nikki: So whatever schemes, hauntings or traumas that may come up in your future, don't include me in them.

Sharon: I'm sorry, Nikki, I know I've asked a lot of you.

Nikki: Well, I can't take it anymore. The situation with my husband is very serious. I don't know if he will ever even speak to me. I don't know what the future holds. (Door opens)

Nikki: Victor...

Sharon: Um, I was just leaving. Call me if you need me.


Brittany: Will the extension classes give me units towards graduation? And I can take all my classes at night, right? Oh, online. Okay, great. That's even better. Okay, well, I'll have someone go pick up the application for me at the university bookstore. Thank you so much.

Brittany: Well, you gotta be practical, Brittany. At least finish school. (Knock on door)

Brittany: Who's there?

Danny: My name is Danny Romalotti.

Brittany: Yeah, listen, whatever it is you're selling, no, thank you.

Danny: I'm not selling anything. I'm a friend of Raul’s.

Brittany: He's not here.

Danny: You gonna open up?

Brittany: I'd rather not.

Danny: Please?

Danny: Hi there.

Brittany: Hello.

Danny: Um, may I come in?

Brittany: That name-- Danny Romalotti-- I know that from somewhere.

Danny: Well, I'm glad someone remembers.

Brittany: Wait a minute. You're that Danny Romalotti? The, like, rock star?

Danny: Like, I guess so.

Brittany: What are you doing here?

Danny: Well, if you let me in, maybe you'll find out.


Nikki: So how are you?

Victor: I'm all right.

Nikki: I can see that's not true.

Victor: Would you prefer it if I told you I'm a basket case?

Nikki: I would prefer it if you would be honest with me.

Victor: Oh, yeah? As you have been with me?


Brad: You haven't answered me, Ash. What did he say to you? What's his attitude now that he knows?

Ashley: He was upset Brad, he was really upset.

Brad: Predictably.

Ashley: I thought I could trust him, but now I'm not so sure.

Brad: What does that mean?

Ashley: I couldn't keep it a secret any longer, 'cause it was destroying my life, but whoever said that the truth will set you free was a liar.


Nikki: Victor, please, don't lecture me about honesty, you of all people.

Victor: Nikki, how could you have lived with yourself all this time knowing full well that I was Abby’s father? How could you have done that without saying a word?

Nikki: Believe me, I wish I had never known. I wish it had never come to light.

Victor: Well, that's one thing you and I agree on.

Nikki: Really? I'm surprised.

Victor: Why does that surprise you, knowing full well what complexity this would add to your life, to my life, to Ashley’s life, to everyone's life?

Nikki: This is a huge revelation for you, and you would rather not know?

Victor: I don't know how I feel about it. I've never been so damn confused in my life. One thing I know for sure, we can't turn back what happened. We can't put the genie back in the bottle, can we?

Nikki: I'm just shocked to hear that you would want to.

Victor: How would you deal with all this? How would you handle this situation?


Brad: Ash... sometimes it depends on what the truth is and how long it's been withheld.

Ashley: I wanted Victor to know because I just didn't want to live with this cloud hanging over my head, and I stupidly thought that you and I could just go on with our lives in peace.

Brad: And I gather Newman’s not gonna make it that easy.

Ashley: Mnh-mnh, not quite.

Brad: What did he say?

Ashley: I can't get into it right now, Brad. I just have to let things calm down, you know, 'cause it was in the heat of the moment.

Ashley: (Sobs) oh, honey, don't ever doubt how much I love you.

Brad: I hope you mean that.

Ashley: What do you mean, you hope I mean it? You don't think I do?

Brad: Ash, you've sent me so many mixed signals, I don't know where we stand.

Ashley: I hate that, and we can't let that go on anymore. Come with me.

Brad: Why?

Ashley: Just come with me. Come on.


Brittany: So what's this all about? Raul never said anything about Danny Romalotti being his buddy.

Danny: Well, I didn't say we were best friends. Actually, we just met.

Brittany: Where?

Danny: The coffeehouse.

Brittany: So where's Raul?

Danny: I don't know.

Brittany: I didn't always look like this. Did Raul send you here to pretend not to notice what happened to my face?

Danny: No.

Brittany: Did he send you here, period?

Danny: It was my idea.

Brittany: Listen, I'm sure you mean well, and it's really cool having a famous guy in my place, but I've had my arm twisted about all I can take today.

Danny: I've been through the whole thing, you know.

Brittany: What thing?

Danny: Being a singer, wondering if I was ever gonna make it and then finally making it, making it pretty big.

Brittany: Pretty big? You were huge, weren't you? Oh, I'm sorry.

Danny: It's all right. Different generations.

Brittany: So you were a big star, and you had a great time, and you weren't some drugged-out wreck. What does that have to do with me?

Danny: Tell me something. You and singing, what's the deal?

Brittany: The deal? I love it.

Danny: Yeah, well, I love ice cream. I'm talking about, is it something that's deep inside of you, something that you just have to get out, or you'll die?

Brittany: Sometimes.

Danny: How about when the lights go up, and the music starts, and people are there, there to see you sing. Is it the most exciting thing in the world to you?

Brittany: You know it is.

Danny: But scary?

Brittany: Well, of course. You want to do good. You want to blow people away.

Danny: But you're worried because you have a scar on your face that what, you'll never make it in the music business?

Brittan Beyond worried. Are you kidding? Please don't sit here and tell me that people who look like I do make it every day. Looks count.

Danny: Sure they do, but let me tell you something. Great music and great art doesn't come from perfect people. It doesn’t. People with normal, nice simple lives very rarely make art. See, the great music and the great musicians and great writers, all of them, their talent and their success comes from hard work and from what drives them deep inside and sometimes things that even torture them.

Brittany: Like what, big, giant burn scars on their faces?

Danny: To some great extent, yes. It's the scars that make the artist who they are.


Nikki: Are you being honest with me in saying that you wish this had never come to light?

Victor: Well, I think it would have been better for everyone concerned.

Nikki: Well, then just let it go. We'll just go on with our lives. Nothing has to change.

Victor: How can I do that? How can I pretend I don't know that Abby’s my daughter when I know the truth? How can I forget about it?

Nikki: I don't think you want to forget about it.

Victor: Let me ask you something. What was your involvement in all this?

Nikki: You're asking me to explain myself?

Victor: Can you?

Nikki: Yes. I guess I went about it wrong, but I really was trying to protect everybody, especially you, our family, and even Ashley and Brad and their family. I did a miserable job of it. I'm sorry, but I tried.


Brad: What have you done?

Ashley: Do you remember my candle collection? It was stuck in a drawer for a long time.

Brad: Looks like you've lit them all at once.

Ashley: Just about. This one is the most special one. Do you remember it? You gave it to me in the hospital after Abby was born, and we were married.

Brad: It's never been lit.

Ashley: Well, I think it's about time it was.

Ashley: And I brought out the fountain, too, because it's supposed to make a person feel more peaceful.

Brad: Ash, this is lovely, truly, but you're not at peace.

Ashley: I'm sorry if I hurt you.

Brad: I can see how frightened you are.

Ashley: I don't know what's gonna happen, Brad.

Brad: Whatever we have to face, we'll face it together, if that's what you want.


Brittany: Right, like you have scars.

Danny: You know, my mother died when I was young, and I didn't get to know my dad until I was grown. I guess you could say that I didn't exactly have the idyllic childhood. But I wasn't all messed up, I mean, don't get me wrong. I just... I needed to sing because it filled a void in my life. And I wanted approval, because approval-- it replaced the love I missed out on. So I got up on that stage, and I demanded it. I worked for it, and I got it.

Brittany: This is different. I need to feel pretty, so that I have the courage to perform in front of people.

Danny: Get over it, Brittany. You've gotta get over it. Use what has happened to you. You can use it, or you can turn away from it, but let me tell you something. If you use it, you're gonna get up on that stage, and, sure, you're gonna be worried. You're gonna be worried about what these people are gonna think when they see you, and you might get a little mad. And you'll think to yourself, "are they gonna judge me by my face, yeah? Well, then listen to this." And then you are gonna belt out this number, a song that comes from deep inside. You will, and let me tell you something. Those people, all they're gonna be thinking about is where they can buy your next cd. Or you can choose to run from it.

Brittany: Look, I get what you're saying, I do, but...

Danny: My advice to you-- get over needing to feel perfect. Get to a place that the only reason you're up on that stage is because you've got a song that you need to sing. You do that, and let me tell you something. You are gonna bring more soul and more passion to your work than you ever thought imaginable.

Danny: Hey, listen, I've got an appointment. I've got to run. I hope you don't mind my busting in and filling you with a bunch of unsolicited advice.

Brittany: No, no, thank you. I'm glad. Danny...

Danny: Yeah?

Brittany: Raul-- he asked you to do this, didn't he?


Brad: (Moans)

Ashley: Did you know that all parts of the body are reflected in the foot?

Brad: Well, that's an intriguing thought.

Ashley: Well, it's true. This part right here...

Brad: Mm-hmm.

Ashley: That's your neck and your shoulders.

Brad: Mmm.

Ashley: And this part right here-- that's your lower back.

Brad: Don't stop.

Ashley: I'm not going to, honey. You've done this for me so many times.

Brad: Come here. Come here.

Brad: What's frightening you?

Ashley: I'm afraid that everything's gonna change.


Victor: I don't mean to be harsh with you, but you should not have kept the truth from me.

Nikki: Do you have any idea the torment it has been?

Victor: I have to say that I do understand your attitude towards Ashley a bit better now.

Nikki: Well, if you are angry with me, you should be livid with her. I mean, deciding on her own to have your child by illegal means without telling you, without you being involved in it. I mean, it's unbelievable. And Brad, who loves her so much, how can he trust her? How could anybody trust her now?

Victor: Well, make no mistake about it, my confidence in her and my trust in her has been severely shaken.

Nikki: Well, hallelujah. At least, maybe some good will come of this.

Victor: What do you think that will be?

Nikki: I don't know.

Nikki: So... what are you thinking right now?

Victor: I don't know what I feel. I have another child, another beautiful daughter. That's a major event in my life.

Nikki: Abby has a family, Victor. She has a mother who loves her and a father who loves her very much.

Victor: Brad Carlton is not really her father.

Nikki: Yes, he is. He is, and he has been from the day she was born.

Victor: Just to remind you, I was there in the hospital when Abby was born. I was there before anyone else. I remember only too well when the nurse put the baby into my arms. She mistakenly thought I was the father. Little did I know then that I really am the father. But I will never forget the feeling that I had when that little girl was in my arms. It was wonderful.

Nikki: Why are you saying this to me?

Victor: Because I'm trying to tell you how I feel. I've never been so damn confused in my life. The family that I treasure above anything else is shattered, splintered. My daughter's off who knows where looking for another life. My son I no longer consider part of this family, since his betrayal.

Nikki: Don't say that.

Victor: How can I not say that? That boy single-handedly ruined my reputation. On top of which, the two women I trusted the most kept from me the fact that I have another daughter, a beautiful little girl.

Nikki: Will you please not say that? The child is very happy where she is. She's got a family who loves her.

Victor: My blood flows through her veins, not Brad Carlton’s. I want her to know me.

Nikki: What does that mean?

Victor: I will talk to my lawyers.

Nikki: What are you saying? Are you going to try to get custody?

Victor: Once I know my rights, I will decide. I want Abby to become part of our lives, at least part of my life. In fact, I want her to live with me.

Victor: I'm going upstairs.


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

Nick: Has my father approached you yet about replacing me?


Judge: Mr. Newman, I'd like to you to meet your new probation officer.

Woman: How do you do?


Brittany: Before you leave town,
