Daniel: What do you mean he isn't my father?

Phyllis: Just what I said. Danny Romatttti is not your natural parent, and that's where the story begins.

Daniel: No, hold on. Time-out.

Phyllis: No, wait a second. You promised me you'd hear me out, even if I said something you didn't like.

Daniel: Does Dad know about this?

Phyllis: That you're not his son? Biologically? Yes.

Daniel: I--I don't get this.

Phyllis: Listen, I understand, Daniel. It's not about trashing Danny, okay? He's been a wonderful Father to you in every sense of the word. He has loved you and cared for you since the moment you were born, and believe me, he fought me until the bitter end for custody 'cause he wanted you so badly, but, sweetheart, he's not your biological father. And that's a secret that Christine and Danny were so hell-bent on keeping from you.


Kay: Come on in, people. Welcome to my intervention party. Ha ha. There is food! And free drink. Free drinks for everyone! Come on! Come on!

Esther: Oh, my God.

Jill: Katherine, what is all this?

Kay: We are celebrating, darling.

Gina: Celebrating what?

Kay: Oh, for heaven's sakes. Help yourself. Please help yourself to some of those hors d'oeuvres. They are delightfully delicious. You'll love 'em, just love them.

Jill: All right, what do we do now?

Esther: Beats me. This wasn't covered in any of my training classes.

Nikki: Katherine, please, send these people away.

Kay: Well, after all I've gone to, to invite them? Nikki, what kind of an attitude is that, sweetheart?

Arthur: Katherine, I don't know how you anticipated this, but we're here to help you.

Kay: To try and get me sober, yes, I know. Well, I'm not interested.

Brock: All right, Duchess--

Kay: Oh, Brock, for heaven's sakes. It was so good of you to come. I'm so pleased you're here, darling. I'm so pleased you're here. Well, now let's just don't stand there and stare, for heaven's sakes. Fix yourself some food. I mean, do something to liven up this little ol' get together intervention. Here's to you.


Ashley: Hey, Dad, you okay?

John: Oh, I'm fine. Katherine Chancellor's family's having an intervention.

Ashley: You're kidding me. 'Cause of her drinking?

John: I guess it's gotten to that point. Nikki and Jill are there. I wanted to go, but...

Brad: Well, John, if you feel a need to be there, this meeting can wait.

John: Victor needs an answer today.

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

John: I have no intention of firing my son.

Brad: As tough as it is to consider, John, $75 million would do this company a lot of good.

John: More good than having a little pride left?

Brad: I don't know that we can afford pride right now.

John: What Victor is doing is extortion, not illegal extortion, but what's the difference? The effect is the same.

Ashley: You're absolutely right. So I guess the question is-- do we submit to Victor now or submit to the failure of our company in a few months from now?

John: Those are our two choices.

Brad: Listen, you know what? We could get lucky, cut Jabot back to the bone, catch a rising economy, pull a rabbit out of our hat. I'm willing to try it, but it's a long shot.

Ashley: We could also take Victor to court at the same time. That's another long shot.

John: I just do not know if I can find it in me to tell Jack he's no longer wanted here.

Ashley: Don't think of it that way, Dad. I mean, we obviously-- we love Jack. We want to work with him. Victor's forced our hand. He's got the money. He makes the rules.

Jack: Hey, you're all here. Great. Why so glum? Hey, folks, the writing is on the wall. We gotta put another notch in our belts and get to work.


Dru: Excuse me. I'm looking for Devon Hamilton. Is he here?

Jamal: I just sent him to the hardware store. He should be right back.

Dru: Do you mind if I wait?

Jamal: No, no problem. By the way, my name is Jamal. I'm one of the supervisors here.

Dru: You're too young. Actually, Lily's told me about you. I'm her mother-- Drucilla Winters.

Jamal: Oh, nice meeting you.

Dru: Likewise. Likewise.

Jamal: Okay.

Dru: My, my, my. They certainly have done quite a bit with this place.

Jamal: Yeah, the kids have done a great job.

Dru: Evidently, yeah.

Jamal: We're having a community open house in a couple of weeks if you want to come down.

Dru: Well, I just might do that. Thank you.

Jamal: Okay.

Devon: Hey, Jamal.

Jamal: What's up, my man?

Devon: They only had two of those screwdrivers you wanted. The guy said at the place they gonna get some more in tomorrow, though.

Jamal: All right, thanks. Lily's mom is here to see you. Uh, I'll be in the office if you need me.

Dru: Thank you.

Jamal: All right, no problem.

Devon: So you here to chew me out again?

Dru: I just need to talk to you.

Devon: Hey, well, look, I don't need any lectures about stealing.

Dru: It's not about you. It's about my daughter.


Chris: So Daniel actually agreed to see his Mom.

Danny: Yeah, I know. I was in shock, too. I mean, especially since he was adamant, you know, "keep her out of my life, or else." And all of a sudden, he's willing to sit down with her.

Chris: If nothing else, maybe this will chill her out a little bit.

Danny: Chris, you know Phyllis as well as I do. I mean, she's not gonna be satisfied with one visit. No matter how it goes, it's, you know, only gonna whet her appetite. Talk about if there ever was a case of "be careful what you wish for."

Chris: Well, she got what she wanted. They're having dinner. Of course, we have no control over what she'll say to him, but your son's pretty savvy. We just have to have faith in his good judgment.

Danny: You're right. You are absolutely right. You know something? You are amazing. No, you are truly amazing.

Chris: Thanks.

Danny: If fact, so amazing that I'd like to make you a proposition.

Chris: Ooh, tell me more.

Danny: I've been thinking about this a lot lately, although this thing with Phyllis has sort of brought it to a head. I'd like to move in with you and Daniel.

Chris: You'd like to move in?

Danny: Yes. Do you hate the idea?

Chris: Well, no, don't hate the idea. I actually think it's time.

Danny: Great. Great. Uh, are you sure? I mean, this is a big step.

Chris: I know. I just--it makes sense for all three of us.

Danny: Instant family. I mean, you ready to take that leap?

Chris: Would you stop it? I like Daniel. I would like Daniel even if he weren't your son. And believe me, if I weren't up for this, you would know.

Danny: Still, why don't you take some time, all right? No, really, come on. Think about it.

Chris: Okay, then you know what? Okay, I will. I'll sleep on it. I'll sleep on it all alone in my great, big bed.

Danny: I should have kept my mouth shut.

Chris: This is gonna be one of the perks-- no more lonely nights.

Danny: Now that you mention it.


Phyllis: If it were up to me, you would've been told all this a long time ago, and we wouldn't be going through this right now, right? We'd probably still be a family. But there are certain people that wanted me banished from your life. I had no say in your upbringing, when or whether you would hear the truth about your paternity.

 Daniel: Whoa, when you say "certain people," you're talking about Christine again.

Phyllis: Yes, I am. I am talking about Christine. She's controlling and extremely self-absorbed. She has tremendous influence over Danny.

Daniel: Well, they used to be married.

Phyllis: Yeah, they were. They were married. And if we're being honest here, I'll tell ya, he never really got over her. That's what caused most of the problems in our marriage.

Daniel: Well, if Dad... isn't my father, then who is, and why didn't he raise me?

Phyllis: I was about to say it was complicated, but I'm not gonna do that, 'cause I'm gonna tell you the truth. I was very young. And I got pregnant.

Phyllis: I know. It's not too original, is it? But it's true. And this man is a man who-- who I knew didn't want kids. So from that standpoint, you're lucky.

Daniel: Yeah. Well, does he know?

Phyllis: About you? Yes, he knows.

Daniel: So how does Dad fit into this whole picture?

Phyllis: Well, I-I met Danny, um, in New York when he was on Broadway, and, uh... the minute I saw him, it was like... magic. We locked eyes and-- and I fell over heels in love with him. And I knew that we were destined to be together for the rest of our lives.

Daniel: So after you slept with him, you lied to him and told him the baby was his. I mean, that's pretty much what you're saying here, isn't it?


Nikki: No, thank you.

Brock: Mother, please listen to me. Try and think back when you got sober after years of drinking.

Kay: Oh, Brock, Brock, Brock, Brock. Is this going to be one of those trips down memory lane?

Brock: I was so proud of you. It's breaking my heart to see you making the same mistakes over again. Last time Phillip died. This time it may be you.

Kay: Oh, we're all going to die, Brock. Every single one of us in this room is going to die. It's just a matter of when.

Arthur: But it doesn't have to be now, Katherine. Now just stop for a minute and try to recall a happier time when I fell in love with a vital, exciting woman who was the most beautiful creature I'd ever seen.

Kay: Well, you're not exactly that man that I fell in love with many years ago.

Arthur: Underneath all that booze, you're still the same person. But I'm so afraid that after tonight, I'll be left with nothing but memories because the woman I'm looking at right now is not the woman I fell in love with. My Katherine, you're an out-of-control alcoholic.

Kay: I'll have some food on that one.

Lauren: Katherine.

Kay: Yes.

Lauren: Judge Hendricks was right. You've crossed the line. That lovely, charming person that we've all respected and loved has disappeared.

Elizabeth: And what's left is this sad, pathetic woman drinking herself into her grave. Do you care so little for those of us who love you?

Kay: Love is never having to say you're sorry, Elizabeth. Isn't that the way it goes?


Phyllis: I loved Danny with all my heart. I wanted to be together forever. So I lied... partly because of you.

Daniel: Because of me?

Phyllis: Yeah. I knew Danny would be an excellent father. I also knew that a man who was into his marriage wouldn't leave his wife sitting home alone for a year.

Daniel: So what, did you do him a--do him a little favor by breaking 'em up?

Phyllis: You're being sarcastic. Maybe I deserve that. Danny and I were extremely involved. Extremely involved. And that doesn't happen for no good reason, Daniel. So he divorced Christine, and he married me, and it was bliss. We were a happy, loving family until his ex-wife decided to ruin everything.

Daniel: How'd she do that?

Phyllis: By making it her life mission to get Danny back to spite me and to also prove that she could do it. She would crook her little finger, and he'd come running. Yeah. She also used you as a weapon. She convinced Danny to divorce me, and then she took me to court and had me declared unfit, in spite of the fact that I was an excellent mother. She even admitted I was.

Daniel: Unfit, why? Because you lied to Dad?

Phyllis: Then she dumped Danny and hooked up with Paul Williams.

Daniel: You're kidding.

Phyllis: No. I'm not. Danny was so devastated. That's why he moved to Europe, ruining any chance I had of visitation, destroying my relationship with my son. So there. That's the truth. So you can thank Christine for ripping you away from a Mother who truly loved you, okay? Out of sheer vindictiveness and spite. Listen, I don't know what else to say to you, but this woman is heartless. That's why it kills me to know that you're living with her after all the lies and manipulation, Daniel.

Daniel: Because she's playing God with my life.

Phyllis: She is the reason you grew up never knowing your mother.

Daniel: It's not only her. What about Dad? I mean, he went along with the whole thing. How the hell could he do that to me?

Phyllis: I don't know, Daniel. You're old enough to make your own decisions now. Please, please give me a chance. Please. I'm your Mom. I'm your mother, Daniel. Listen, I don't wanna lay all this on you, but you deserve to know the truth. I love you so much. I wanna have a relationship with you. I love you more than words could say.

Daniel: I need some time to think about this.

Phyllis: Of course you do. I understand. Take all the time you need.


Brad: Listen, Jack, those are great long-term plans, but in the short term, we're still a day late and a dollar short.

Jack: I agree. Without Newmanís money, we have quite a grind ahead of us. But you know what? It is times like these that foster creativity. You come up with solutions you never would've considered if you weren't in a bind. So what do you say we roll up our sleeves and get to work?

Ashley: We were just talking about the whole picture right before you came in here.

Jack: Okay. I'm all ears. What'd you come up with?

Brad: We were discussing Victor's offer.

Ashley: What we should do.

Jack: There's something to talk about there?

John: Jackie, I want so badly to spit in that man's eye and tell him--

Jack: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Let's get this on the table. You were discussing accepting his offer, with the stipulation?

John: Nothing has been decided yet.

Ashley: We're just discussing it, Jack. We have to. It wouldn't be fair to our employees if we didnít.

Brad: And to ourselves.

Jack: Then we're not just looking for the right way to tell him, "no way in hell."

Ashley: No.

Jack: We're talking about saying to him, "okay, Victor, you won. Jack is out of here. Give us the money." Well, that about cinches it.

John: Now, Jack, just a moment. Just a moment now. We have made no decisions yet.

Jack: It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. If I'm to lead this company through these difficult times, I'm gonna need the backing of every one of you. I can't do it otherwise. (Sighs) obviously, I don't have that kind of support. So let me make this a lot less uncomfortable for all of you and tender my resignation.

John: Well, I don't accept it.

Jack: Well, let me put it another way, then. I quit.

John: Jack, now, come on. Just a moment.

Jack: This is the only way. You know what? I can already feel the weight lifted from my shoulders.

Jack: Good luck. I mean that from the bottom of my heart.


Devon: Now why do you wanna talk about Lily?

Dru: There are some things you need to know about my daughter.

Devon: Really? Like what?

Dru: Like she's been through a lot.

Devon: Oh, yeah.

Dru: Now I know that your lives are very different. She's had to overcome quite a bit this past year.

Devon: Really? And why are you telling me this?

Dru: I don't want you leading her down the wrong path, Devon.

Devon: Oh, I see. So I was right then. This is about that money.

Dru: Yeah, this is about that money that you stole.

Devon: You know, I needed that money a lot more than the guy in the store did.

Dru: Who's to say that?

Devon: I could tell by looking at that guy.

Dru: You could tell by looking at that guy. Let me tell you something. I don't care if he was Donald Trump himself. Did it ever occur to you that he worked for the money? You had no right to steal it.

Devon: You know, I really need to get back to work.

Dru: No, you really need to st-- you need to stay right here. I'm not finished talking to you.

Devon: Well, it seems like you're the one doing all the dang talking, so...

Dru: You best be glad that I am. Now I want you to stay away from d daughter.

Devon: What?

Dru: You heard what I said. You're a bad influence.

Devon: Listen, just because I don't live in a fancy neighborhood like you, all right--

Dru: Oh, wait, wait. Look, this has nothing to do with a zip code and everything to do with character.

Devon: Listen, I didn't ask your daughter to lie to that cop.

Dru: You know, you're right about that. She did it out of her own free will, which tells me that she cares about you.

Devon: Unlike her mother.

Dru: Now you're putting words in my mouth. How do you know I don't care about you?

Devon: Sure, yeah.

Dru: You know, one day I might just wanna get to know you.

Devon: Why?

Dru: Because--

Devon: I'm like you used to be. Lily told me that you used to live on the streets. Is that true?

Dru: Maybe. Maybe not.

Devon: Well, if so, please tell me, where do you get off judging me?


Devon: Please, you act so high and mighty with your big apartment and your fancy clothes and your nice car parked outside, but you know what the truth is? You are really no better than I am, 'cause all you did was get lucky.

Dru: Huh. Did you know that there's no such thing as luck, that luck is a lot of hard work? And I've worked very hard, thank you very much. God gave me a brain and a lot of determination.

Devon: And a rich husband, too.

Dru: Oh, don't make me laugh. He's worked hard, too. We both decided to work hard together. That's how you make it in this world. You blaze your own trail.

Devon: So what are you trying to say, if I buckle down and apply myself, I can get to be just as phony and stuck-up as you? No, no thanks.

Dru: Ooh. I'm-a leave that one alone. You've got a long way to go, son. Stay away from my daughter.

Devon: And how am Isupposed to do that? You know, we both work here.

Dru: Perhaps I could call the Wisconsin Department of Children and Family Services and speak to your social worker. Or perhaps you'd like me to talk to Jamal.

Devon: No, no.

Dru: Oh.

Devon: I'll figure something out, all right?

Dru: I bet you will. Thought you'd see it that way. Hey, Devon. I'll see you soon.


Jack: I'm taking a few personal things. Anything that was company-related, I left for... whomever. You never said-- are you gonna hire somebody to replace me? You gonna just spread my work out among yourselves?

John: We haven't made that decision yet.

Jack: Well, get crackin'. Time's a-wastin'.

John: You know, you're taking this awfully well.

Jack: Not really. I feel like I have a long, sharp knife sticking out of my back, though I do understand how you guys decided what you did.

John: Well, not me.

Jack: Yeah, I'm sure you were the last holdout.

John: Jack, I would rather go broke than knuckle down to that--

Jack: Dad, you can't afford that kind of sentiment. You have to stay in reality, and reality says this company needs that Newmanís money right now more than it needs me.

John: (Mumbles)


Esther: You can do this, Mrs. Chancellor. The big book says--

Kay: "One day at a time," yes, I know. But this is not the day, Esther, dear. Put it to rest. Lauren.

Lauren: You don't have to be so flippant, Katherine. You're facing a personal crisis. We all are.

Kay: Really? Tell me, what was this crisis that all of you are facing? What? What is it?

Lauren: The possibility of losing somebody very dear to us.

Kay: Oh, Lauren, Lauren, you win some, you lose some. Dear, that's a fact of life.

Lauren: It doesn't have to be like this. You have so much to live for.

Kay: (Chuckles)

Brock: (Groans) (clears throat)

Jill: May I, um, say something?

Kay: Could I possibly stop you?

Jill: Katherine, please think of all the years we lost, those years I didn't know I was your daughter.

Kay: Perhaps those were the very best years of your life.

Jill: No, no, no, no. These are the best years of my life. Come on. You and I are beginning to connect as a mother and a daughter. Are you really willing to give all that up?

Kay: After all the years you spent hating me-- listen to this, Nikki. If I kick the bucket, you would probably grieve for five minutes. Five minutes.

Jill: That is not true, and you know it.

Kay: Oh, come on. Don't you understand? Alcohol is a preservative, sweetheart. I mean, I am probably going to-- by the looks of you now-- I'm gonna outlive all of you.

Jill: Stop it. Stop. Please be serious.

Kay: I am serious! I'm serious about my drinking, dear heart. Now come on! Everybody, would you please just liven it up? I mean, if you can't lick 'em, you join 'em. My God.

Mac: What's going on?


Lily: Hey. What, you're not even gonna say hello?

Devon: Hello. You happy now?

Lily: What is wrong with you? Are you still upset about yesterday? Look, I know my mom can be a little... intense, but you shouldn't have stolen that money.

Devon: Thanks, Mom.

Lily: Well, it was a really stupid thing to do.

Devon: Well, then why didn't you let that cop teach me a lesson then?

Lily: What?

Devon: Why did you cover for me?

Lily: I was protecting you.

Devon: Look, I don't need your protection.

Lily: Devon.

Devon: Just get lost, all right?

Lily: Why are you so angry? I totally helped you out, and now you're treating me like dirt. I thought we were friends.

Devon: Well, you're wrong. All right? We're not friends. All right? And we never were. I gave back the stupid money, so please, just find yourself another charity case.

Jamal: You okay?

Lily: I don't know what I did wrong.

Jamal: Look, don't let it get you down, all right? Like I told you the other day, Devon isn't the easiest person to get to know. I mean, it's hard for him to let people in.

Lily: Well, did he say anything to you?

Jamal: About what?

Lily: Never mind.

Devon: I mean, maybe your mom knows what's going on.

Lily: My Mom?

Jamal: Yeah, she was here earlier, came to see Devon.


Kay: Mackenzie. Join the party, please?

Mac: I don't understand. I thought this was supposed to be an--

Esther: An intervention. It was.

Arthur: Unfortunately, Mac, your grandmother had other ideas.

Jill: We've been trying to get through to her, but she won't take it seriously.

Brock: Sweetheart?

Mac: Dad.

Brock: Oh, come here. Come here, come here. Oh. Have you come to lend your support, too?

Kay: Of course she hasnít. Come here, sweetheart. Give--give--give Grandma a hug. Please, I need a hug, please.

Mac: You're drunk.

Kay: Well, have all these people already brainwashed you?

Mac: Grandma, these people are your friends. They're family. They're trying to save your life.

Kay: Be that way. Go ahead. Just take his side.

Mac: Don't you know how important you are to me? I owe you so much. You rescued me when I had nothing, and... you showed me what it meant to be a part of a family.

Kay: But we're still a family. Still.

Mac: No, we arenít. At least we won't be, not unless you stop drinking.

Mac: Grandma, I don't have a choice. I can't just stand here while you destroy yourself. I'm gonna have to walk away, too.


(Doorbell rings)

Chris: Phyllis.

Phyllis: You're very observant. Is Danny here?

Chris: He was. He left a few minutes ago.

Phyllis: So you're alone?

Chris: Very observant. What do you want?

Phyllis: It's about Daniel. We need to talk.


Danny: So anyway, Sis, Daniel asked me to meet him here, but he's not here. Well, thanks for letting me unload on your voice mail. Just give me a call when you can, all right? Okay, bye. Hey, son.

Daniel: Don't you call me that. Don't you ever call me that again?

Danny: What are you talking about?

Daniel: When were you planning on telling me the truth? Or were you maybe hoping that I would just spend my entire life swallowing the lie that you're my Father?


John: Jack, it just sounds so ugly when you say it.

Jack: Dad, it is the truth. You put $75 million on one side of the scale, you put me on the other--

John: Now, damn it, Jack! You make it sound so simple. It's not. You've done a great deal for Jabot over the years. No one has brought more personal commitment, energy or determination to make this company a success, which we have been, by the way. And we both know how many companies close down year in and year out. Son, you have been with me through thick and thin.

Jack: I appreciate the accolades. I do.

John: Well, you have been an incredible asset to me.

Jack: Dad, I've worked hard, and I'm proud of it, but right now Victor Newman has the upper hand.

John: (Sighs) you know, I'm about to receive $75 million to save my company, and all I feel is a profound sense of loss. Now something is wrong with that.

Jack: What have you been telling me my whole life? There are no free lunches.

John: No, Jack, I'm gonna turn it down, because I am still head of this family--

Jack: Dad, Dad--

John: No, I am chairman of the board.

Jack: Dad, you don't--

John: It's my company! I built it!

Jack: You don't wanna do that.

John: I cannot help that.

Jack: You'll get over it. I promise. Dad, I turned down the same offer from Victor. Was it dumb? I... at the time, no. No, at the time, we had the resolve to take him to court and get five times that much. That was then. This is now. Now it would be dumb to turn down that offer.

John: You really believe that? How can you be so calm about it?

Jack: Calm? Dad, I'm boiling inside. What am I gonna do? I'm gonna get mad at you and Ashley? You're all I have. And I am not gonna get angry at Victor Newman anymore. Hell, I made a full-time job of that.

John: Well, Jack, you may not feel you wanna get angry with Victor, but I will. I can. I--

Jack: Dad, donít.

John: I want to!

John: You know, Jack, you know how much I love your sister. She's been a just great joy in my life. And I know that this is not politically correct, but I am at a time in my life when I don't give a damn. I always dreamed that when it was my time to move on, the company would be in your hands. My son would carry on for me. And knowing that you would be there to tend the garden that I've planted, then I could accept my life coming to an end much, much more and much easier.

Jack: Please don't talk like that.

John: I didn't mean to lay this on you.

Jack: Don't--don't apologize. Just... Dad, we don't know how this is gonna end up. We donít. We could look on this down the line as a great thing that happened at exactly the right time. Hey, come on. Cheer up.

John: (Sighs) I know. I'm sorry. I was going to try to boost your spirits. Look what we had-- you're trying to make me feel better.

Jack: How about letting me succeed at one thing today? How about a smile?

John: Hmm. Here.

Jack: Thanks. I love you, Dad.

John: I love you, son. And I'm sure gonna miss you around here.

Jack: Someday, some way... I'll be back, Dad. I promise.


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

Nick: If you did anything to connect that body to my wife, you'll be the next one they find in that sewer.


Phyllis: You took my son away from me!


Mac: Put the glass down, okay?

Kay: I can't!
