Nick: Hey.

Sharon: Hi. How was your run?

Nick: Felt good. Needed to clear my head a little. I'm trying to figure out what Cameronís next move's gonna be.

Sharon: So you're really going through with your plan?

Nick: It's too late now. I already accepted his job offer.

Sharon: How did he react?

Nick: He played it cool. He thinks he's calling all the shots. But little does he know what I have in store for him.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Knock on door)

Cameron: You're late.

Man: You said first thing in the morning.

Cameron: Yeah, which means first thing, not when you decide to roll out of bed.

Man: I'll remember that.

Cameron: Please do.

Man: So you sounded upset on the phone.

Cameron: Well, that's very perceptive of you.

Man: I'm, uh, starting to get that same impression right now.

Cameron: Let me ask you a question, Gabe. How many years we known each other?

Gabe: What's your point?

Cameron: Through those years, you've done a lot of favors for me. And I've always made sure that those favors were well worth your while. Would that be fair to say?

Gabe: You've compensated me very well.

Cameron: Yeah, because you've never let me down. You know, there are not a lot of people I can say that about. But I would hate to think that my trust has been misplaced.

Gabe: Cut the buildup, Cam. What's going on?

Cameron: Why don't you tell me? 'Cause I had an interesting conversation with Grace yesterday. Seems somebody has been talkin' to her about a corpse.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: You still need volunteers?

Mac: Hey, you.

Daniel: Hey, yourself.

Mac: I thought you'd be on a plane by now. Today's the day you go back to school, isn't it?

Daniel: Yeah, well, for some reason, all of a sudden, things just seem a bit more interesting here than they do in Switzerland.

Lily: Private Winters reporting for duty, sir.

Jamal: Hey, Lily. How's it going?

Lily: Great. It's gorgeous outside. And it's starting to look better in here, too.

Jamal: Yeah, we're makin' some real headway in here.

Lily: Yeah. So where's everyone else?

Jamal: I mean, it's still early. I expect a full crew today, though.

Lily: Hmm, will the kids from new promises be here?

Jamal: One in particular, right?

Lily: If you're talking about Devon...

Jamal: Look, word of advice, I think it's great that you want to be friends with him, pull him out of his shell a little bit.

Lily: But what? I'm an uptown girl, I can't relate?

Jamal: Just be cautious, all right? I mean, you and Devon aren't here for the same reason.

Lily: Look, Jamal, I grew up mostly in Europe. You know, I have traveled all over the world, met all kinds of different people. I just don't see what the big deal is, hanging out with someone who isn't exactly like me.

Jamal: It's cool. I mean, but my advice still stands, okay?

Lily: Okay.

Jamal: Okay. All right, I gotta go over there.

Lily: Okay.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nikki: Well, you're a little off your home turf, aren't you?

Victor: Are you busy?

Nikki: Never too busy for the love of my life. Let me guess. You're here to invite me to lunch.

Victor: Nope. I don't feel like eating.

Nikki: Oh. Something wrong? What happened?

Victor: Had a run-in with Ashley Abbott.

Nikki: About Abby, no doubt.

Victor: Yeah, she was upset about a rather innocent conversation I had with her little girl.

Nikki: Where did this happen?

Victor: At the athletic club. I ran into Mamie Johnson. She was babysitting Abby and so l little boy, asked me to watch Abby for awhile while she was taking the boy to the play room.

Nikki: So you agreed?

Victor: Of course. What else could I have done?

Nikki: And since Mamie has no idea you're Abbyís--

Victor: She saw no harm in it, nor did I.

Nikki: Well, I'm sure you explained this to Ashley.

Victor: She was impertinently furious with me. I must say, I'm absolutely... couldn't believe that woman's tone.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

John: Bradley, I don't understand why you two are dragging your feet on this. We're running out of time.

Brad: John, there's not much we can do until all of us reach some sort of consensus.

John: My son's attitude hasn't changed, has it?

Brad: No, it hasnít.

John: Well, then it's up to you and Ashley.

Ashley: Did I hear somebody mention my name?

Brad: Hi, honey.

Ashley: Hi.

Brad: Your dad and I were just discussing the settlement negotiations with Victor.

Ashley: Oh.

John: What negotiations? As far as I can see, nothing's been done.

Ashley: Well, Daddy, you know these things take time.

John: Well, we don't have time, Ashley. This is a very desperate situation. The longer we wait, the worse it's going to get, the less money we'll get from Newman.

Brad: Well, his 10 million offer is ridiculous.

Ashley: You both realize that none of this ever had to happen.

John: Ashley, because of Jack's stubbornness, I know that. But what's done is done. What I don't understand is why you two haven't been able to put this to bed yet.

Brad: Squeezing millions of dollars out of Newman isn't a piece of cake, John.

John: All right, what's going on? Now come on, are you two keeping something from me? What is it?

Brad: We just wish we had better news for you, that's all.

John: Well, the way things are going, Newman could balk at giving us the $10 million he offered. And we'll be in litigation for years.

Ashley: We won't let that happen.

John: Oh, really? Can you guarantee me that, Ash? Can you guarantee me that I won't lose this company that I've spent my life building?

Brad: All right, John, you have to relax. We're on top of it.

John: Bradley, I cannot relax until I see some evidence! This should be your top priority.

Ashley: It is.

John: Ashley, look, your relationship with Victor makes you the most effective negotiator we have. Now use that relationship. You do whatever you have to, but, honey, you get this done! Because if you don't, I promise you both, I will.

Ashley: Where are you going?

John: Chicago, with open hands to another round of bankers. Now listen, I expect you to arrange a meeting with Newman as soon as possible. You get this resolved before I'm back! Damn it.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Paul: There's that one, and here is this one.

Lynne: That would be a file and forget.

Paul: File, forget and... don't remind. Look who's here. J.T.

J.T.: Hey, you guys busy?

Paul: No, it's a rare moment of peace and quiet. How are you doing, J.T.?

J.T.: Good.

Lynne: A celebrity in the office. I'm gonna call the media.

Paul: God, Lynneís going to have that all over town by the time you write your next hit, I'm afraid.

J.T.: Yeah, well, then in that case, take your time.

Lynne: Are you kidding? I saw your video. You were great, J.T.

J.T.: Thanks.

Paul: So are you stopping in to say good-bye?

J.T.: Good-bye?

Paul: Well, I'm assuming you're headed back to L.A. To work on that big tour you told me about.

J.T.: Well, you know, actually, I've kind of been rethinking the whole music career thing.

Lynne: Rethinking? After all the success you've had already?

J.T.: Yeah, well, you know, been there, done that. Who knows? I might just decide to go off in a totally different direction.

Paul: Yeah. Um, Lynne, would you mind giving J.T. And me a moment?

Lynne: It's great to see you.

J.T.: You, too.

Paul: So, J.T., Um... you wanna tell me what's really going on?

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Lily: So everything in these boxes goes.

Devon: Are we keepin' the boxes?

Lily: Yeah, good idea. They're still hauling some junk from the upstairs rooms.

Lily: So you seem to be getting into things a little more around here.

Devon: Well, I got nothin' better to do.

Lily: Well, you know, personally, I would do this even if I didn't have to for school.

Devon: Why?

Lily: Well, 'cause of my Mom. She was a runaway. And when she was my age, she was living out on the streets. So it's kind of like giving something back.

Devon: Yeah, well, that sucks, but so what? I mean, what, am I supposed to feel sorry for her?

Lily: No, that wasn't what I was saying.

Devon: Why are you layin' this on me anyway? I mean, I don't need to be hearin' about your family problems.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mac: So bring the rest of that stuff in the morning, okay? Great.

Daniel: You sure are in demand around here.

Mac: Well, it's definitely not boring, that's for sure. So listen, I think it's great that you decided to stay. I bet your dad's so happy.

Daniel: Yeah, he seems to be. Surprise, surprise.

Mac: What does that mean?

Daniel: It means... just skip it.

Mac: No, tell me. Why wouldn't you think your Dad would want you to stay in town as long as possible?

Daniel: Because he basically dumped me off at boarding school when I was a kid. And now that I'm older, I came back here wondering if he was just going through the motions, having me visit.

Mac: Since you guys spend so much time apart?

Daniel: I guess he does care. Who knew?

Mac: Okay, you're gonna think I'm totally making this up, but...

Daniel: But what?

Mac: Um, well, you know how we both have Moms that are total disasters?

Daniel: Yeah.

Mac: I can relate to the father stuff, too.

Daniel: Why, did your dad abandon you or something?

Mac: No, but he wasn't around while I was growing up. And actually, he didn't even know I existed until I was in high school.

Daniel: Are you kidding me?

Mac: See, when we finally met, we totally connected. And now that he lives in Louisiana, we still keep in touch, and he's a huge part of my life.

Daniel: You know, your life sounds amazing.

Mac: I don't know about "amazing," maybe weird.

Daniel: No, I mean it, Mac. From the little you've told me so far, I just want to know more.

Mac: Well, it's a long story. This is definitely not the time and place.

Daniel: Yeah. You know, why is it no matter where we are, we just seem to get into these long, deep conversations?

Mac: I don't know. It just kind of happens naturally.

Daniel: Yeah, it does. I've got an idea.

Mac: You do, do you?

Daniel: Yeah, I happen to have a great bottle of wine in here. And you know, it's lunchtime, so why don't we go to the park and have a picnic. I mean, we can grab some cheese and a baguette on the way--

Mac: You brought wine in here? Are you out of your mind?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sharon: What do you have in store for Cameron?

Nick: I don't know yet. I do know we have to get closer to him so we can watch his every move.

Sharon: And you don't think that he suspects you're setting him up?

Nick: No. He thinks I'm going to work for him so I can get back at my father. He has no idea that I have him in my sights.

Nick: What?

Sharon: I just--I'm not sure that this is a good idea.

Nick: Babe, we talked about this. I know what I'm doing.

Sharon: But you don't know Cameron, not the way that I do. And if he suspects that you're deceiving him--

Nick: That is not gonna happen, not until I have what I need to put him away for good.

Sharon: Nicholas, I think this is too dangerous.

Nick: All right, so what am I supposed to do, go to him and tell him I changed my mind, that I don't wanna be second in command at his company?

Sharon: I just think there's gotta be a better way to handle this.

Nick: I already told you I am not going to the police.

Sharon: Well, what if you went to someone else?

Nick: Who?

Sharon: What if you went to your father?

Nick: No, Sharon, absolutely not.

Sharon: He might be able to help.

Nick: Sharon, no. I do not want my father getting involved in this. If he does, he'll do what he always does and try and take over, and he'll ruin everything.

Sharon: Nicholas.

Nick: Baby, you are my wife. And we are gonna do this my way. You have no idea how much I hate this guy for what he's done to you. When I was standing in his hotel room, it took everything I had not to tear him limb from limb. But I didn't do that, and do you know why? Because very soon, this guy is gonna get what he deserves. And I'm gonna be the one who gives it to him.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gabe: So your lady friend has been talking to somebody about a corpse?

Cameron: You wouldn't know anything about that, would you?

Gabe: Well, if you're suggesting I said someth--

Cameron: I know it wasn't you.

Gabe: Well, then who was it?

Cameron: I'll get to that in a minute. Right now I want to know if there's anything you want to tell me, Gabe. 'Cause I don't like being left in the dark.

Gabe: You got an issue with me, just say so.

Cameron: You wanna know what my issue is? I'll tell you what my issue is. I think you got careless, Gabe. I think you slipped up. I think you didn't cover your tracks well enough. That is my issue, my friend.

Gabe: (Clears throat) well, you're lookin' in the wrong place.

Cameron: Oh, yeah?

Gabe: I'm a professional. I take my work very seriously. In all the jobs I've done for you, have I ever been caught? No. And I never will be. It's because I'm extremely good at what I do.

Cameron: Are you sure that no one saw you?

Gabe: What, put the body behind the dumpster? No. That's impossible.

Cameron: What about before, when you were...

Gabe: Doin' the deed?

Cameron: Don't play games with me. Now that body didn't just appear outta thin air. You know what I'm askin' you. Are you 100% sure that nobody saw you kill that man?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

J.T.: What's there to tell? I just started thinkin' that maybe the, uh, the whole music industry really isn't for me. And it's not like, you know, I didn't have fun. I enjoyed goin' to L.A. And having that experience, but it's like everything was happening so fast, I didn't even have time to think about it.

Paul: Wh-- what's to think about? I mean, you go perform, you have some fun, you make some money. I don't see the problem here.

J.T.: Well, that's just it, neither did I, you know, with all the hoopla and everything, until I got there. And then, uh, you know, some unfinished business hit me, and...

Paul: Oh. Is this something to do with colleen?

J.T.: In a way.

Paul: What way?

J.T.: You know, it's like-- it's, like, I was down with the whole idea that the record business was all-consuming. But, you know, whatever record label was gonna sign me, it's like-- it's like they own me, body and soul, you know? They're telling me what to say, how to act, what to wear. And, you know, the whole time, I'm... I can't quit thinkin' about Kevin Fisher. That guy's like a thorn in my side, Paul. I try not to think about it, but I canít. I can't forget.

Paul: So how does Colleen feel about this? Did you tell her about it?

J.T.: We broke up. She left town.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nikki: Victor, are you sure you're telling me everything?

Victor: What's that supposed to mean?

Nikki: Well, for Ashley to be that upset, there must be more to it.

Victor: Well, maybe because I extended an invitation to the little girl to come out to the ranch.

Nikki: Ah, well, that would be a distinct possibility. Why on earth would you do that?

Victor: Because she asked me where I lived, I told her. She asked if I had horses, I said yes. She asked if she could ride one, I said of course you can. Any little girl would like to ride a horse.

Nikki: That makes sense, I suppose.

Victor: I had no intention of running into that girl or contacting her. It was purely by coincidence. Although she seemed rather pleased about it.

Nikki: She did?

Victor: Yeah, even mentioned that, you know, I was her other Daddy.

Nikki: Obviously, she hasn't forgotten what she heard.

Victor: No, she was very matter-of-fact about it. She's an adorable girl, by the way. She said that her best friend had two fathers as well.

Nikki: So she didn't seem confused or upset in any way?

Victor: Not in the least, as fragile and traumatized as both Brad Carlton and Ashley make her out to be. Not at all. She's a very healthy girl.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brad: Your dad's one unhappy camper.

Ashley: I know. Uh, honey, there's something I need to talk to you about. You know yesterday when Mamie dropped off Abby?

Brad: Ash, Ash, listen, you don't have to change the subject. I know you're upset about the way your dad talked to you.

Ashley: Well, he's right. It's true. I have been avoiding scheduling a meeting with victor.

Brad: Yeah, well, I don't blame you. I mean, given the situation with Abby, naturally, you'd want to stay as far away from him as you can.

Ashley: Yeah. Sometimes, it's not always possible.

Brad: Especially now that your dad's given us a deadline. Either we settle it, or he's going to do it himself.

Ashley: You know, maybe that's not a bad idea. He has fewer issues with Victor than the rest of us.

Brad: Yeah, well, that's only because he doesn't know about Victor's connection to Abby.

Ashley: Maybe I should tell him.

Brad: Why would you want to do that?

Ashley: Well, I don't, necessarily. But at least then, he'd understand why I'm not the best person to talk to Victor right now.

Brad: You know what? I may have a better solution.

Ashley: What's that?

Brad: You stay out of it completely. I'll negotiate with Victor.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gabe: That's a stupid question.

Cameron: How about an answer?

Gabe: You honestly believe I'd bumped somebody off with witnesses around?

Cameron: You know what? I still haven't heard those magic words, Gabe.

Gabe: Nobody saw me.

Cameron: (Sighs) you're sure?

Gabe: Yes. Now why the third degree? Who's been talkin' to Grace?

Cameron: Nikki Newman.

Gabe: Sharon's mother-in-law? How would she know anything?

Cameron: Well, she wouldn't, unless Sharon told her.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sharon: Promise me that you will be careful.

Nick: Nothing is gonna happen to me, okay? I'll be fine. We are gonna get through this.

Sharon: And then what?

Nick: We'll figure it out.

Nick: You know, there's something I can't stop thinkin' about.

Sharon: What?

Nick: It's that body in the sewer that you and my mom saw.

Sharon: Oh, please, don't remind me.

Nick: Look, what made you think that that was Cameronís body?

Sharon: Because it was wearing his clothes, the clothes he wore on New Yearís Eve.

Nick: So that's it? That's all you had to go on?

Sharon: The face was badly decomposed. God, and the stench... can we please not talk about this?

Nick: Look, babe, I know this is hard for you, but you gotta help me, okay? Try and think, try and remember. Was there any distinguishing characteristics about it?

Sharon: I'm sorry, Nicholas.

Nick: We gotta find out who that was.

Sharon: How?

Nick: You let me worry about that.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mac: Thanks.

Man: Anytime.

Daniel: Mac, it's not alcohol. It's a French wine, a really nice Bordeaux.

Mac: This is a rec center, a community project. There are tons of underage kids here.

Daniel: So, they don't get any, and it'll be more for us.

Mac: I don't drink.

Daniel: What do you mean? Everyone drinks.

Mac: My grandmother is an alcoholic. I hate liquor. I've seen it do terrible things to people. At the reservation where I was teaching, I saw it literally rip families apart.

Daniel: I'm sorry. It's just, back home in Europe, wine's, like, something you have with every meal. I mean, even little kids. It's not like anyone was trying to get drunk or anything.

Mac: I'm sorry. I shouldn't have jumped on you like that. You had no idea how I would've felt.

Daniel: Yeah, guess I really hit a nerve, huh?

Mac: Well, I'm closer to my grandmother than anybody on earth. When I came back and saw the state she was in...

Daniel: Yeah, but that still must be cool, though, knowing your grandparents. I mean, as far as I know, mine are dead.

Mac: You've never met them?

Daniel: Maybe when I was a baby or something. But, no, I don't remember.

Mac: So they've never been a part of your life?

Daniel: And here you are with all this family that's so close to y..

Mac: My Dad and my Grandma anyway.

Daniel: Yeah, but it's different. I mean, I never had that. I can't imagine what that would be like, you know, feeling, I don't know, that connected to someone.

Mac: Well, I really hope that one day you do get to feel that, Daniel. 'Cause it is incredible.

Daniel: So I guess I kinda struck out with the whole picnic idea, huh?

Mac: (Laughs)

Daniel: You think there's anything we might still be able to do together?

Mac: Actually, yeah. Come here.

Mac: I saved this just for you.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lily: Look, can I just say something?

Devon: What?

Lily: When a person is trying to get to know you, it doesn't mean that you have to get all defensive.

Devon: Whatever.

Lily: You know, I asked Larrison if she knew you, and she said didnít.

Devon: Who?

Lily: Larrison Campbell. She lives in my building, goes to Parker Academy, like I was telling you.

Devon: Ah, yeah. We must not have any classes together.

Lily: It's not that big a school, Devon.

Devon: Look, are we workin' here, or are we yakking?

Lily: Way to be friendly.

Devon: That's your trip.

Lily: You know, you're making me sorry that I even bothered.

Devon: Look, why do you care anyway?

Lily: Why?

Devon: Yeah. You must have some reason, something you want. People always do.

Lily: Not all people. Would you just stop that and talk to me?

Devon: Look, first you're raggin' on me for not workin'...

Lily: You know what? I just--I just want to tell you that my life hasn't always been that easy. I have gone through some rough times, and it's made me a really good listener.

Devon: So?

Lily: So I'm here if you ever wanna talk about anything.

Devon: Anything to talk about, like what?

Lily: I don't know. Problems?

Devon: I don't got any problems.

Lily: Look, I know that you don't go to school at Parker any more than you live in Calhoun Heights. I know that you're from a group home... a few blocks from here. So why do you keep pretending? I mean, why do you want me to think that you're something you're not?

Devon: Look, where the hell do you get off prying into my life like that?

Lily: I-I just--

Devon: No, look, just stay out of my business. Do you hear me, girl? All right, you don't know a damn thing about me.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ashley: You've got to be kidding me. You're an even worse choice to talk to Victor than I am.

Brad: Let me give it a try.

Ashley: Honey, you'd be better off dealing with him in a boxing ring.

Brad: Now that's not a bad idea.

Ashley: Seriously, we have to find somebody who can influence him.

Brad: Well, obviously, Jack's out of the question.

Ashley: Obviously. You know what? What about Nikki?

Brad: Nikki?

Ashley: Well, she clearly has the best relationship than any of us.

Brad: All right, that's an intriguing thought.

Ashley: You know what? This is an awkward situation for everybody. What harm can it do just to talk to her about it?

Brad: Okay. Let's try it. Let's talk to Nikki.

Ashley: All right. You know what? I gotta go down to the lab, but then we can go to Nikkiís office, and remember, there's something I need to talk to you about, okay? Don't let me forget.

Nikki: Darling, I know you mean well, but it's impossible to know what's going through that little girl's mind.

Victor: If she were traumatized, don't you think I would've noticed?

Nikki: She's 6 years old. Much too young to articulate what she really--

Victor: Darling, it isn't that complex. It's very simple. She wants to get to know me. I would like to get to know her. The only people keeping us apart are Brad Carlton and Ashley.

Nikki: Did Ashley give you an idea of when you might get visitation?

Victor: Apparently, they consulted with two so-called experts. One of 'em thinks it's all right for me to see the little girl, and the other one doesnít.

Nikki: Oh, great. Dueling psychologists.

Victor: Oh, yeah. Now they both want to evaluate her, and then hopefully come to some conclusion. Who knows how long that'll take.

Nikki: Well, it seems like a reasonable request.

Victor: I mean, I've done everything to accommodate them, you know? I've not pushed myself on the situation at all. They, on the other hand, come up with one stalling tactic after the other, and I won't put up with it much longer.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Paul: So Colleen left town?

J.T.: Yeah. She felt like she needed to.

Paul: For how long?

J.T.: You know, I'm tryin' not to think about that right now. Kevin Fisher's who's on my mind.

Paul: All right. Well, they are sort of connected.

J.T.: Yeah, like I said, unfinished business. Especially now that we know he's not going down for what happened to Brittany. That puts us right back at square one-- making sure he pays for what happened to Colleen and Lily.

Paul: Right. So, J.T., bottom line, what are you asking me?

J.T.: All right, here it goes. I was kinda hopin' that I could work here again. You know, like before, be your apprentice.

Paul: So you can dig up dirt on Kevin Fisher? You know, I would leave that to the cops.

J.T.: Cops? I mean, what have they accomplished, Paul?

Paul: J.T., listen, take some advice. I would think about this a little bit.

J.T.: There's nothing more to think about.

Paul: You don't think so?

J.T.: No.

Paul: You go to L.A., you come back... you come right over here. I mean, how can you be so sure it's justice you're really after? Look, okay, you ran into a rough spot with your record label. Maybe all you need to do is slow down and regroup.

J.T.: Paul, I'm not goin' back there, whatever you decide.

Paul: Man. You know, J.T., You-- you put me in kind of a rough spot here. I mean, I'm gonna have to think about it.

J.T.: I'm totally fine with that.

Paul: I mean, the last thing I need is a vendetta being run outta this office. I am trying to run a business based on fact and not emotion.

J.T.: I know, and I'm walkin' in here cold. I don't even know if you need anybody. I know you're still in touch with your old partner.

Paul: You mean Andy? Yeah, I... he's back east. He's--he's doin' what he does back there, but... as for you working here again--

J.T.: Yeah, you're right. Me quitting and coming back, it's not exactly a great recommendation. But you know what? I'll--I'll be around whenever you make up your mind.

Paul: Okay.

J.T.: And, Paul, listen, whatever you decide, it's fine. You know, no hard feelings.

Paul: J.T. When can you start?

J.T.: Seriously? Whenever you say the word, boss, I'm there.

Paul: Will a handshake do for a contract?

J.T.: What happened to thinking it over?

Paul: Well, who says I'm not? We'll just see how it goes.

J.T.: All right.

Paul: Welcome back, J.T.

J.T.: Thanks.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sharon: What are you thinking about?

Nick: I've been racking my brain and none of this makes sense. I mean, what is Cameron after? If he faked his own death, why didn't he stay dead?

Sharon: And why did he put that body behind the dumpster?

Nick: I wonder if he knows it's been moved yet.

Sharon: How could he?

Nick: Did you say anything?

Sharon: I don't think so.

Nick: Well, then he has to be wondering why it hasn't been discovered yet.

Sharon: Well, maybe he doesn't care.

Nick: Oh, no, no, he cares. He put that body there for a reason. I mean, if you hadn't moved it, someone would've eventually found it. And then they would've called the police, and then everyone would have known he wasn't dead.

Sharon: Do you think that's what he wanted?

Nick: I don't know. Honestly, the more I think about it, the more confusing it gets.

Sharon: One person who can clear this up is Cameron.

Nick: Actually, there is someone else we could talk to, someone who knows Cameron better than we do. Or at least she thinks she does.

Sharon: You can't mean Grace.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gabe: So you think Sharon confided in her mother-in-law?

Cameron: I think Sharonís a basket case. I think the pressure got to be too much, and I think she told Nikki everything.

Gabe: So why wouldn't the woman just run to the cops?

Cameron: 'Cause Sharon told her not to protect her marriage.

Gabe: I don't know, Cam. That's one hell of a secret to keep.

Cameron: Look, we know somebody moved that body from behind that dumpster. Otherwise, it would've been discovered, and the police would've launched an investigation.

Gabe: And you think that somebody was Sharon.

Cameron: Yeah, I do. But she didn't do it alone. That's not possible.

Gabe: Yeah, you never know.

Cameron: Come on. What do you mean, you don't know? There is no way that she could've disposed of the body of a full-grown man by herself.

Gabe: Don't sell her short. She's tougher than we thought. You remember New Yearís Eve in that motel room. You didn't expect her to fight back.

Cameron: Oh, oh, what, and you expected her to? Is that what you're sayin', huh? Is that where we're goin'?

Gabe: Easy, Cam. All I'm sayin' is the woman's made of strong stuff. She needs to be handled carefully.

Cameron: Don't tell me how to handle Sharon.

Gabe: Have we finished here, or what?

Cameron: Hey. Find that body.

Gabe: I told you, I been lookin'.

Cameron: Well, I didn't ask you to look for it. I told you to find it. Because without it, my entire plan is shot to hell.

Gabe: Well, I'm doin' the best I can. What else you want me to do, knock on Sharonís door, ask her where she stashed it?

Cameron: The sewer, the sewer, the sewer. That's where she saw it.

Gabe: What?

Cameron: Oh, my God. She told me. She blurted it out one time when I was... when I... I remember. It's in the sewer. Well, that oughta narrow things down for you.

Gabe: It's a big town. There's hundreds of miles of sewer.

Cameron: Well, then you got a big job.

Gabe: Oh, come on, boss.

Cameron: Hmm?

Gabe: You really can't mean that... maybe we oughta let the cops know now.

Cameron: No. No. Not until we can give 'em something specific, tell them where the body is.

Gabe: So how are we gonna do that? You think you can pry it outta Sharon?

Cameron: I don't know. But I'll try. In the meantime, well, I think you oughta get down to the sewers.

Gabe: Well, you better hope Sharon talks. Because the chances of finding a body down there...

Cameron: Well, if Sharon won't tell me, then, uh, maybe her mother-in-law will be more cooperative.

Gabe: You're gonna pay Nikki a visit.

Cameron: If I have to. I think I can get her to talk. I have my ways.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nikki: Victor, I know you're anxious, but you need to be pa--

Victor: Darling, please don't tell me to be patient, all right? I've done more than enough in that department. It is Bradley and Ashley that refuse to compromise. And another thing that bothers me...

Nikki: What?

Victor: The settlement issue between Newman Enterprises and Jabot Cosmetics has not been put to rest.

Nikki: There's been too much on everybody's minds.

Victor: But you cannot let business slide. None of the Abbotts have come forth and negotiated with me.

Nikki: Maybe they're waiting for you to make the first move.

Victor: I already did, ages ago.

Nikki: God knows we could certainly use the money.

Victor: Well, let me ask you something, none of you except that idiot Jack Abbott want to go to court, do you?

Nikki: No. Definitely not.

Victor: Then on the other hand, I guess I could just sit back and bide my time.

Nikki: What does that mean?

Victor: Now you know that without money from Newman Enterprises, Jack Abbottís company will go under.

Nikki: I'll mention it to Ashley. You'll hear from someone soon. And as far as Abby, I-- I really don't see that it will hurt, letting the therapists talk to her.

Victor: They can talk to her all they want. I'm not gonna let some stranger dictate to me whether I have the right to see my biological daughter. It won't happen. I'm gonna see her whether they like it or not. And Ashley and Brad better get used to the idea.

(Footsteps approach)

Next on "The Young and the Restless"

Nick: "Petition for dissolution of marriage"?

Michael: That is why I'm here, isn't it?

Brad: Nikki told me about your little secret. When did you plan to tell me, Ash?

Victor: Your arrogance is gonna come back to haunt you. I promise you.
