(Doorbell rings)

Jack: I gotta say, I am impressed. Quite a coup you pulled today. Actually, that's why I'm here-- to propose a toast.

Jack: So go ahead, get us a couple of glasses.

Victor: Why would I do that?

Jack: Oh, that's right. You have people that do that for you. You know what? I know this house quite well. I'll get 'em myself.

Victor: That's not necessary.

Jack: Oh, come on, Victor. How long have you waited for this moment? Besides, it's tasty champagne.

Victor: Stop the B.S., Jack. Why are you here?


Phyllis: Hey, Damon! Damon! Hey!

Damon: Baby, baby, baby.

Phyllis: Hey!

Damon: Shh. Shh. Shh.

Phyllis: What? What? Oh, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. You could be in the middle of a sťance or something.

Damon: Yeah, no, I was just taking a nap. I don't need to communicate with the great beyond today.

Phyllis: Because I would hope there here and now is better for you.

Damon: Oh, believe me, it is, absolutely.

Phyllis: Mmm.

Damon: How was your day?

Phyllis: Well, it was really good, but before I get into the details, um, I want to ask you something.

Damon: Sure.

Phyllis: Okay, um, could I borrow the apartment?

Damon: Borrow?

Phyllis: Yeah, I want to know if I could borrow it. I'm really excited. Um... Daniel has agreed to have dinner with me.

Damon: Here?

Phyllis: Yeah. And so I wanted to know that, you know, we could have dinner here, and I don't want to go to a restaurant. I want it someplace nice and quiet. You know, it's not about the food. It's about... it's about me and him, you know? I mean, you know how long I've been dreaming of this moment-- just having a meal with my son.

Damon: That sounds wonderful.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Damon: Yes, of course. Of course you can have the apartment.

Phyllis: Okay, good.

Damon: Of course. Absolutely.

Phyllis: Good.

Damon: How did you get Daniel to agree to this?

Phyllis: Um... that's the other side of the coin. I--I made him a promise-- a pretty big promise.


(Knock on door)

Brittany: Come in.

Bobby: Hey, beautiful.

Brittany: Bobby, what are you doing here?

Bobby: Well, if you don't want me to come down, why'd you call me and tell me you were having surgery today? How you making out?

Brittany: I'm okay. I'm a little nervous.

Bobby: Hmm.

Brittany: But you really did not have to come down here.

Bobby: Yeah, well, I wanted to come. You sure you want to go through with this?

Brittany: Well, I kind of have to now.

Bobby: You don't have to do anything you don't want to do.

Brittany: No, I want to do this. I know you don't understand why.

Bobby: I understand-- tired of that scar, and you want your face to look the way it used to. But I want you to know that I think you're perfect just the way you are.

Brittany: Well, I'm glad you think so, because there are no guarantees this will work.

Bobby: Well, what if it doesn't? You gonna be okay with that?


J.T.: No, that's not right. Damn it! (Sighs) so how'd it go?

Raul: I got Brittany all checked in.

J.T.: You didn't want to stick around till she got out of surgery?

Raul: Oh, I thought about it, but she's got plenty of support there. Guess who was driving into the parking lot just as I was leaving?

J.T.: Marsino.

Raul: She must have called him and told him she was going in today.

J.T.: So what are you doing here, man? Get back to the hospital.

Raul: No, don't start with me.

J.T.: I'm serious. You should be holding her hand, getting her through this.

Raul: Whatever.

J.T.: Raul, come on. You're not gonna get anywhere with her if you keep letting Marsino sneak in and take all the good moments.

Raul: I don't want to get anywhere with her, okay? What she and I had is over. We broke up, we're friends now, and that's it.

J.T.: Friends? Right, right, you keep telling yourself that, and maybe one day you'll believe it. Hey, Mac.

Raul: Hey.

Mac: Hey.

Raul: Mac, you okay? You seem down.

Mac: It's my grandma's drinking. It's way out of control. Jill wants us all to get together and give her an ultimatum. She either cuts herself off from the booze, or she cuts herself off from all of us. She can't have both.

Raul: Whoa.

J.T.: Seriously?

Mac: I don't know what to do. It seems so cruel.

J.T.: When does Jill want to do this?

Mac: Tonight. So I really don't have that much time to decide.

Raul: I'm sorry, Mac.

J.T.: Yeah, me, too. That's gotta be rough. (Cell phone rings) (Ring) (Ring)

Mac: Hey you. Right now? Yeah, yeah, okay. I'm on my way. I gotta go.

Raul: Who was that?

Mac: That was Daniel. We're meeting at the coffeehouse.

J.T.: Mac, Mac, what for? Come on.

Mac: Be nice.

Raul: Who's Daniel? Wait a second. Is he that guy you met over at the rec center? I thought he was going back to Europe.

Mac: He changed his mind.

Raul: Gee, I wonder why.

Mac: All right, I'm gonna go. I'll see you guys later.

J.T.: Mac...

Mac: Bye, J.T.


Kay: Don't you worry, old friend. I'm not gonna let those holier-than-thou people come between us. I would never do that, no, because this old gal has still got a few tricks up her sleeve. (Chuckles) a couple.


(Knock on door)

Arthur: Looks like my beautiful daughter is having a bad day.

Jill: Boy, you can say that again.

Arthur: Your board meeting didn't go well, right?

Jill: That board meeting was the meeting from hell, Dad. It was a shining example of corporate politics run amok. I don't want to think about that. Tell me what you're doing here at this time of day.

Arthur: I stopped by to see if we're all set for the intervention.

Jill: Everybody I contacted is on board with us.

Arthur: That's wonderful, wonderful.

Jill: Except Mackenzie.

Arthur: Ah, did you tell her how Katherineís drinking has escalated?

Jill: Well, I did, but she's not with her on a daily basis. She has no idea how bad it's gotten.

Arthur: I can imagine the thought of turning her back on her grandmother is pretty frightening.

Jill: Dad, it's not gonna be any picnic for us either, you know.

Arthur: Well, let's hope she comes around.

Jill: Who, Mac? She'd better, because without her help, I'm just afraid that this intervention could be a total flop.


Raul: Well, what do you know? Mac's got a boyfriend

J.T.: Look, don't even kid around about that.

Raul: Why do you hate this guy so much?

J.T.: Because he's an arrogant little punk, that's why.

Raul: Hmm, Mac doesn't seem to think so. She's pretty into him.

J.T.: Yeah, which I totally don't understand. The guy's still in high school.

Raul: You're kidding.

J.T.: No. So you agree-- this doesnít make any sense.

Raul: Well, hold on. Now are you talking a freshman?

J.T.: No, he's a junior. He's 16.

Raul: Well, that's not that huge of an age difference.

J.T.: Four years.

Raul: Hmm, you know, as I recall, you and Colleen were just about--

J.T.: Yeah, yeah, that was different, all right?

Raul: Really, how?

J.T.: I don't know. She, uh... she just... she just wasn't Daniel, okay?

Raul: Wow, that was deep. That's a good comeback.

J.T.: All right, fine. I don't like the guy. I don't like him at all. How's that for a reason?

Raul: You know, it's possible that Mac doesn't even know his real age.

J.T.: You think he kept it from her?

Raul: Well, maybe it just never came up, you know? Maybe she just assumes the guy's older than he really is, and he never set her straight.

J.T.: Or maybe he's lying to her.

Raul: Why's he gonna lie to her?

J.T.: To impress her. You should see this guy, man. He's always trying to act mature-- drinking espresso, using big words.

Raul: Let it go, J.T. Mac's a big girl. She'll figure this out.

J.T.: Or maybe I should save her some time. I gotta go.

Raul: Now where you going?

J.T.: I think I'm gonna go to the coffeehouse. I just got a sudden urge for a double espresso.


Daniel: Looks like we both just got here.

Mac: I guess we're psychic.

Daniel: So where do you want to sit? You want me to throw them out?

Mac: Would you, please?

Daniel: You know, the patio's pretty empty.

Mac: Okay, let's go.

Daniel: Oh, excuse me. Mac, what do you want?

Mac: I'll have a lemonade.

Daniel: And I'll take an iced tea, and we're gonna be out there.

Trevor: You got it.

Mac: Thanks, Trevor.

Trevor: Mm-hmm.

Daniel: Let me.

Mac: Thank you. So...

Daniel: So... man, is it nice to see a friendly face.

Mac: Why, did something happen?

Daniel: Something's about to happen.

Mac: What do you mean?

Daniel: Well, I'm about to embark on a dangerous journey into the great unknown. I'm going to dinner with my mother.


Nurse: Dr. Drayton will be in shortly to talk to you.

Bobby: So you still haven't answered my question. Now what if the surgery isn't a success?

Brittany: Then it isn't a success.

Bobby: Okay, that gonna be the end of the world?

Brittany: A few months ago it probably would have been, but now I'll get over it. I mean, sure, I'll be disappointed, but life goes on.

Bobby: Wow, I'm impressed. That's a good attitude.

Brittany: Yeah, well, that's one of the good things that came out of what happened to me. I feel like I finally have my priorities straight. I know what matters.

Bobby: Like your singing?

Brittany: Yeah, that. And other things.

Bobby: Really? It's already starting to look better.

Brittany: Well, maybe it's the makeup Raul gave me. It's made specially for people with scars, and he gave me this cream, too. It's amazing stuff. I've only used it for a couple of days, and it's already starting to work.

Bobby: Really? He did all that for you?

Brittany: Yeah. He's been a great friend.

Bobby: Oh, yeah, great friend.

Brittany: Well, this hasn't been easy for Raul, stepping aside so I could be with the man I love. You heard me right. I said "love" again. Better start getting used to it.


Damon: You made Daniel a promise?

Phyllis: Mm-hmm, I did. He wants to be told everything-- why his father got custody of him and why I wasn't allowed to see my own son. I guess I could say that a wicked witch cast a spell on me, and I've been asleep all these years, but...

Damon: You'll tell him the truth, right?

Phyllis: Yeah, I'm gonna tell him the truth, absolutely, but I'm not just gonna tell him the facts, you know? I'm gonna let him know why I did what I did and what it was like for me.

Damon: It can't be that bad.

Phyllis: Well, it's not all good, especially in some places.

Damon: Well, I'm sure it's all in how you're gonna explain it.

Phyllis: Right. Well, I'll do my best.

Damon: You know, if you'd like to rehearse a little bit, I'm here to help.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. You just want to hear what these things are.

Damon: I'm trying to help!

Phyllis: Oh, yeah.

Damon: (Laughs)

Phyllis: I appreciate that. It's just... I'm afraid if I tell you some of these things, that...

Damon: What?

Phyllis: I'm afraid you'll think less of me.

Damon: Am I the least judgmental person you have ever known?

Phyllis: The past is the past, right? You know, I don't want to get into it. Does that sound familiar? Anyway, I'm gonna play it by ear with Daniel. I'm not gonna pretend. And if I just open my mouth, the truth should come rolling out.

Damon: It should. Some people don't know how to stop pretending.

Phyllis: Some people don't, but I've been given a second chance with my son, and I'm not gonna screw it up.

Damon: Hey, are you going to be telling him things that are liable to contradict things said to him by his Daddy?

Phyllis: Oh, I'm sure I will, but you know what? I'm taking the high road. I'm the bigger person. I'm sure he's been told that I didn't care about him, that I didn't want to see him and who knows what else.

Damon: There's gonna be loyalty there where his father's concerned.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm, I'm sure, but maybe I could just hope that Daniel will forget about wanting to hear the truth, but I don't think that's very likely.


Victor: All right, Jack, let's stop the B.S. Why are you here?

Jack: Well, I'm giving credit where credit is due.

Victor: That is unlike you.

Jack: Well, I guess I've never been this impressed before. You know what? I have been called devious and underhanded myself before, but compared to what you did today, I don't hold a candle.

Victor: (Chuckles) now you flatter me, Jack.

Jack: Well, I guess I don't have your killer instinct.

Victor: Really? Do I need to remind you of the time when you left me for dead in my office and just walked out?

Jack: Oh, yeah, I remember that. Regrettably, my conscience got the better of me.

Victor: Spare me.

Jack: So when did you lose your conscience? Or did you lose it? Did you ever have one to begin with?

Victor: You hypocrite. You claim this moral superiority. Remember the time when you stole my company out from under me when I was kidnapped?

Jack: I was thinking too small. Had I been like you, I'd have arranged for the kidnapping and seen to it you never came back. Oh, well, next time.

Victor: You know, Jack, I have to give credit where credit is due. You and I both know that you lost the war, yet you're already planning your next battle. It's indicative of how delusional you really are.


Mac: Thanks, Trevor.

Daniel: Thank you.

Mac: I still can't believe that you're getting together with your mother tonight. Just the two of you?

Daniel: Yeah, maybe I should start writing my will. You got a pen?

Mac: How did this happen? The way you've been talking lately, it doesn't make sense.

Daniel: Well, I guess you could say that me and mama have some issues.

Mac: To say the least.

Daniel: Yeah, I kind of ran into her this morning, and she was all like, "what can I do to get you to love me?"

Mac: So you said, "Letís go have dinner"?

Daniel: Yeah, on the condition that she tells me everything. I mean, I want to know why dad raised me, why she's been missing in action ever since I was in diapers. I want to know all of it.

Mac: The secret unveiled.

Daniel: You never know, though. It could be something really cool, like I'm the heir to a great fortune, and the only way I'm allowed collect it is if she's out of the picture.

Mac: So being the noble person she is, she made the ultimate sacrifice, just so that you could be rich.

Daniel: Yeah, it does sound kind of far-fetched, huh?

Mac: You know, Daniel, you can joke about this all you want, but something tells me that you're a little more nervous than you're letting on. Am I right?

Daniel: Can I plead the fifth?

Mac: I think that you're gonna feel a lot better once you know the truth.

Daniel: Even if it's ugly?

Mac: Not knowing is always worse than taking action, dealing with things head-on.

Daniel: Sounds like I'm not the only one that has something going on.

Mac: Yeah.

Daniel: Is it something to do with your grandmother?

Mac: How'd you guess?

Daniel: I just know how upset you've been.

Mac: Her daughter Jill is planning an intervention.

Daniel: Well, what's that?

Mac: It's when all the most important people in my grandmother's life get together as a group and surprise her. They pressure her to stop drinking, and if she refuses, then we're all supposed to leave, turn our backs on her and mean it.

Daniel: Well, that sounds pretty heavy-duty.

Mac: I guess it's kind of a shock thing, tough love. But I don't know if I can do it. How can I abandon my grandmother when she's in so much trouble?

Daniel: You know, I think you should go.

Mac: Really?

Daniel: Yeah. If everyone's gonna be ganging up on her, and you're worried about that, maybe you should go and stick up for her, you know, let her know that there's at least one person there for her.

Mac: Enabling her. That's what they call it. I don't know what the right thing is. I don't want to kick my grandmother when she's down, but if this is the only way that she's gonna get help...

Mac: All right, so you're saying, if it were somebody in your family, you'd definitely go?


Arthur: Did Mackenzie actually refuse to join us?

Jill: Not in so many words.

Arthur: Then she may still show up.

Jill: I wouldn't hold my breath. Dad, I'm just wondering if maybe we shouldn't cancel this whole thing.

Arthur: Now, Jill, I thought we agreed. We can no longer afford to stand by helplessly while Katherine drinks herself to death. And besides, I truly believe that even without Mackenzie, we can make this work, get through to your mother.

Jill: But she's so stubborn. What if she just walks out the door and refuses to listen to us?

Arthur: Oh, she'll listen all right, if I have to sit on her.

Jill: Well, just in case, I've made reservations for you and me and Esther at the Genoa City Hotel.

Arthur: Honey, I know how difficult this is for you.

Jill: Oh, my God. I finally find my real mother, and I was beginning to have such high hopes for the two of us.

Arthur: Which don't have a chance of being realized if Katherine continues to poison herself with alcohol.

Jill: We've got to be realistic. I mean, as much as we're counting on the power of this intervention, there are no guarantees. For all we know, she could spend the rest of her life rattling around that mansion with a bottle in her hands.

Arthur: I'm willing to take that chance. What other choice do we have?

Jill: None, I guess.

Arthur: But think, Jill, just think, once she's on the road to sobriety, how wonderful our lives will be.

Jill: I hope you're right, because if this fails, I don't know how I'm gonna live with myself.

Kay: You have everything on the list? Mm-hmm, well, then we are set for this evening, set. I said, "we're set for this evening." That's right. Okay, thank you. See you soon. Well, we'll just see who's gonna be surprised tonight, Katherine. (Chuckles) it ain't gonna be me.


Jack: You know what I find fascinating?

Victor: No, Jack, what?

Jack: It's still called Newman Enterprises, and yet you can't find a damn Newman in the building.

Victor: What's your point?

Jack: I mean, you're gone. Nicholas is gone.

Victor: That's only temporary.

Jack: Well, I guess we'll see about that. And Victoria-- well, she left town so she wouldn't have to deal with you. Nikki--Nikki would rather work for me at Jabot than work for you.

Victor: And why does that concern you now?

Jack: I don't know. I guess it doesnít. I'm just wondering, who you gonna get to run the family business? Maybe you could call your son Victor in Kansas.

Victor: I wouldn't go there, if I were you.

Jack: Oh, that's right. He doesn't know that you're his father. I won't tell him. Maybe Hope is right. Finding out he's a Newman could do permanent damage. I mean, look at the mess you've made of your family here. Such a shame-- all that money, all that power, no one to share it with.


Damon: That's just a little difficult to imagine, don't you think? A young man with all those questions just deciding to let it all go, not hold you to your promise.

Phyllis: I don't care. If it gets him here, if I get to spend time with my son, I'll pay the price, whatever it takes.

Damon: Okay, good. And that truth you're liable to tell him, is he gonna find out things he'll wish he didn't know?

Phyllis: Yeah, probably, probably so. But what do you do when someone wants to know the truth, when you can't lie anymore? What do you do, Damon? You know, when a boy his age wants to know about his past, I mean, do I have the right to hide it from him?

Damon: No. The truth about the past shouldn't be hidden, not from the people whose present it creates.

Phyllis: Absolutely. That's pretty deep.

Damon: Well, that's how I feel.

Phyllis: Yeah? Wow, coming from a man who's so closed off about his past?

Damon: No, only parts of it, baby. Nothing that affects you, take my word.

Phyllis: Yeah? (Laughs)

Damon: Hush, shh, shh, shh, this is about... tonight is about you and your boy.

Phyllis: Yeah, I'm excited. So most important, most important, what do I wear?

Damon: What do you wear? You wear blue jeans. What do you wear?

Phyllis: Blue jeans? I don't want to be all casual. You know, this is important. Wait, what kind of food should I have for him?

Damon: How old is that boy?

Phyllis: 16.

Damon: 16. Pizza--you can't miss.

Phyllis: Pizza, really? It's like you've done this before.

Damon: No, no, I havenít. Listen, um, you have a wonderful time. Relax, don't worry. I'm sure whatever the big, bad truth is that you're so worried about, it ain't gonna bother junior one little bit, not when he realizes what a lovely, fun, sweet Mama he got.

Phyllis: You're the best.

Daniel: If it were someone in my family, I probably wouldn't even be invited. I mean, I have, like, no influence, except with mom. But, I mean, that's more like leverage. Who knows how long I'll have that.


Mac: Boy, we're both a mess, huh?

Daniel: Well, you sure arenít. I think you're beautiful.

Mac: Daniel...

Daniel: No, I mean, you care so much about other people. I've never met a girl like you, ever.

Mac: Well, amazing or not, I should probably get in my car, see which direction it points me.

Daniel: Yeah, I should get going, too.

Mac: So where are you meeting your mom?

Daniel: Some apartment over on summit. She left a message with an address.

Mac: Well, hang in there, okay? I'm sure it's gonna turn out fine.

Daniel: Thanks. You too, you know, whatever you decide.

Mac: See, that's what's amazing about you. You're so upbeat.

Daniel: Well, only when I'm with you. So let's meet back here tomorrow morning.

Mac: To compare notes?

Daniel: Yeah, that way no matter what happens with Mommy dearest, at least I'll have something to look forward to.

Mac: Me too.

Daniel: That was for luck.

Mac: Well, it must have worked, because suddenly, I'm feeling very lucky.

Daniel: All right, let's go.

Mac: Okay. Are you ready, boots?


Bobby: So how long is this surgery gonna take?

Brittany: A few hours maybe. Why?

Bobby: Because I wanna stick around so I can be here when you come out.

Brittany: Oh, that's sweet, Bobby, but you don't have to do that. I'm sure you have things to take care of.

Bobby: I want to take care of you. Is that a problem?

Brittany: No.

Bobby: What's with the smile?

Brittany: I like seeing this side of you.

Bobby: What side?

Brittany: All tender and caring.

Bobby: Well, that's all your fault. Hey, you made me a better man. Now I want you to know that whatever happens in that operating room, I'm gonna love you just as much when you come out as when you went in, maybe a little more.

Brittany: I love you, too, Bobby.

Bobby: Where is that doctor?

Brittany: You don't have to stay.

Bobby: No, I'm gonna stay. I'm gonna go out in the waiting room right now and find myself a nice, comfortable chair.

Brittany: Okay.

Bobby: Next time you open your eyes, I'm gonna be the first person you see, okay? I'm gonna go out there now.


(Doorbell rings) (ring)

Phyllis: Okay, I'm coming! Keep your shirt on! Hey, hi. Um, I thought you were the pizza guy. Uh, come in.

Daniel: You got pizza, huh?

Phyllis: Yeah, you know, I'm afraid I'm not a good cook, so, you know, I thought pizza would be okay. I didn't know what was your favorite kind, so I got three.

Daniel: Well, my favorite kind is the kind from Italy. You can read through the crust. American pizzas...

Phyllis: Oh, oh, okay. Well, then we don't have to get pizza. We can order something else.

Daniel: No, no, it's okay.

Phyllis: No, it's okay. I got the phone here.

Daniel: No, I didn't mean to be rude. Pizza's fine.

Phyllis: It's no problem. We can order something else in.

Daniel: This is a great place.

Phyllis: Uh, thanks.

Daniel: You're actually a pretty decent photographer.

Phyllis: Um, I didn't take those. A friend of mine did. Actually, this is... this is my friend's place.

Daniel: Friend, huh?

Phyllis: Yeah.

Daniel: Is he your boyfriend?

Phyllis: Uh, you know, the fridge is all ours. You want something to drink?

Daniel: So you're lying to me already, avoiding my questions?

Phyllis: I'm not lying to you at all.

Daniel: Yeah, you are. You promised to be straight with me, remember? This whole night was supposed to be about honesty.

Phyllis: Okay. My friend's name is Damon, and we share this apartment together. I didn't want to ruin my image, you know, until at least five minutes after you arrived.

Daniel: So you have a boyfriend? So what? I mean, it's kinda cool. I'm not gonna freak out because you've living in sin.

Phyllis: Well, that's good to know, because I don't really know you that well, so I don't know what you're gonna freak out at.

Phyllis: Why don't you... why don't you help me out here? Just tell me a little bit about yourself.

Daniel: Well, there isn't much to tell.

Phyllis: Come on, I'm sure there is. What about you and Mackenzie? Are you going steady or friends?

Daniel: You know, no offense, but...

Phyllis: I'm sorry. It's too personal. I won't pry. All right, forget about it. Just help me here, you know? Maybe if you can understand me, maybe it'll be a little easier for you to understand other things.

Daniel: Well, how is prying into my life gonna help me get to know you?

Phyllis: You got me there.

Daniel: I think we both just need to relax. I mean, this isn't rocket science.

Phyllis: No, no, it's not. You know, it's just a simple conversation, just a conversation, except nothing about it is simple. You know... I'm sure you've already heard a lot of negative things about me from Christine. I don't know, maybe Danny, too, for that matter.

Daniel: Dad hasn't said a word against you.

Phyllis: Really? Oh. So you and Danny, you get along pretty well?

Daniel: Dad and me? Yeah, sure, I mean, this is kind of the most time we've spent together in years.

Phyllis: So are you enjoying your time here in Genoa City?

Daniel: Yeah, it's okay.

Phyllis: You have no idea how much it warms my heart to hear that you and Danny have a good relationship. That's great. Um, have you spent any time with your Aunt Gina while you've been in town?

Daniel: You know, could you knock it off?

Phyllis: Knock what off?

Daniel: Well, I'm kind of sick of hearing you babble on about everything except what we agreed to come here and talk about tonight, which is the past.

Phyllis: Wait a second. No, I'm trying to get to know you.

Daniel: You know what? I came here for one reason and one reason only, and that's to find out what happened when you and Dad split up. I want to know why I was raised my entire life without a Mother. Or were you just telling me everything that I wanted to hear so I'd show up here, believing you like a fool


Esther: Okay, now remember, everyone, we have to convince Mrs. C. that we mean business.

Lauren: She agrees to get help, or we no longer have anything to do with her, right?

Esther: Right.

Brock: Hey, Jill, you all right?

Jill: No, Brock, I'm definitely not all right.

Brock: I know. This still seems so unreal. I mean, the Duchess has been sober for so many years.

Jill: Oh, dear God, please, let this work.

Esther: All right, brace yourselves. We're going in.

Kay: Come on in, everybody! Welcome to my intervention party! Ha ha! There is food, and there's free drinks for everyone! Come on, come on!


Victor: Now you've had your fun, Jack, so get out.

Jack: Well, I haven't finished.

Victor: Oh, yes, you have finished. These cheap shots I expected from the likes of you. You're a failure, Jack-- your business is in shambles, your marriage disintegrated. In fact, you're a charity case. Perhaps I should offer you a job.

Jack: What, cleaning up litter on the side of the road with you and other convicted criminals?

Victor: I have a much better idea. You can push a broom in the rec center I'm building.

Jack: You seem awfully convinced that my board is gonna accept your offer.

Victor: If you think your board has a choice in the matter, you are really more delusional than I thought.

Jack: I wouldn't get my checkbook out just yet. See, I trust my family. I'm an Abbott. We have a kind of loyalty you can only dream of.

Victor: (Chortles)

Jack: Oh, one other thing. You and I both know why you want me out of the picture. Every time you see me, you're reminded of what you did. You broke the law, Victor, for one reason. You didn't want to compete with me on a level playing field. You know that, and I know that. Of course you want me out of the picture. Every time you see me, you see the worst part of yourself.

Victor: You have a good day, Jack.


Phyllis: I don't suppose you're hungry.

Daniel: Keep it up, Phyllis.

Phyllis: Listen, I would never lie to you or try to trick you. So if you believe nothing, believe that.

Daniel: You know, I have asked Dad and Christine so many times to tell me the truth, and neither one of them will breathe a word of it to me, which lets me think that it's gotta be something pretty big. So what happened when I was a baby?

Phyllis: You must know some things.

Daniel: Yeah, I know that a judge took custody away from you and gave it to Dad. I know that Chris was his lawyer. She tells me that I was better off having him raise me.

Phyllis: Hmm, I'm sure she did say that.

Daniel: Well, why did you lose custody? What happened?

Phyllis: So I'm gonna put these in the oven, so they don't get--

Daniel: You know what? You go ahead and do that, and I'm gonna leave.

Phyllis: No, I'm going to tell you.

Daniel: It's now or never, or I'm walking out that door.

Phyllis: Listen, I want you to promise me something-- that you're going to listen to everything I have to say, okay? No storming out, because you heard something that you're not pleased with, okay?

Daniel: Whatever it is, just tell me!

Phyllis: All right I'm gonna tell you everything from the beginning. For starters, Danny is not your father.


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


John: Victor needs an answer today.

Ashley: I know how difficult it would be for you to have to fire your own son.


Dru: I want you to stay away from my daughter.


Daniel: Well, if Dad isn't my father, then who is?
