Y&R Transcript Wednesday 10/20/04 -- Canada, Thursday 10/21/04 -- U.S.A.


By Eric

Jack: Oh, finally got abby to bed, huh?

Brad: How much ice cream did those kids eat?

Jack: Ah, ream. E two kids get together-- I took 'em with me to get my hair cut, they took over the place. It's like they feed off of each other.

Brad: Yeah, abby loves seeing kyle, that's for sure.

Jack: And she likes being with her uncle jack. I mean, I don't buy her ponies, but I'm still her favorite uncle.

Brad: For now. So, jack, why are you still here? You don't usually hang around.

Jack: Well, I thought you and i could have a little talk.

Brad: Hmm. About...?

Jack: Victor newman and your wife.

Brad: Yeah. Well, that's not something I feel like talking about right now.

Jack: Well, that's too bad, bradski, because it's high time you wake up and smell the coffee.

Ashley: (Thinking)

what's wrong with me?

I have a beautiful little girl,

I have a wonderful husband.

All I can think about

is victor.

Man: Hey, mrs. Carlton.

Ashley: Hi.

Man: What can I get you?

Ashley: Um, a glass of dry white wine.

Man: Comin' right up.

Ashley: Thank you.

Mac: You're getting married at my grandma's house?

Bobby: Yeah, I just talked to her. She said we could have the wedding at her place. Now is that good news?

Brittany: Whose idea was this?

Bobby: It was mine. I was racking my brain trying to come up with a place to have the wedding. I called every church and hotel, restaurant, and then it hit me. What about the chancellor estate? It's big enough for all our guests, it's classy, and the best thing is, the price is right. It's perfect.

Brittany: And mrs. Chancellor is really okay with it?

Bobby: Yeah. She says that her home is our home. So did I do good?

Brittany: Yeah, s-sweetheart, that's great. It's just...

Bobby: What, do you have a problem with mrs. Chancellor?

Brittany: No, of course not. She's terrific, and her house is gorgeous.

Bobby: Okay. Then why aren't you treating me like I'm the best fiancé on the planet right now?

Brittany: I just think we should take care of this ourselves. It's our wedding. I don't want us to feel indebted to anyone.

Bobby: What do you mean? We're not gonna owe her anything. She wants to do this for us.

Brittany: I know, a-and that's very sweet. But...

Bobby: What's the problem?

Mac: I'm the problem. Brittany doesn't want to feel like she owes me anything.

Bobby: Now is that what this is all about?

Brittany: Could we please discuss this alone?

Mac: Brittany, why don't you just say yes? Get it over with.

Brittany: Excuse me, but I didn't ask for your two cents.

Mac: Well, have you looked at the calendar lately? You don't exactly have time to be stubborn.

J.T.: Mac's right. Your wedding's right around the corner. It's not like you got a list of places to choose from.

Bobby: Are we gonna do this or what?

Dru: Honey, my afternoon was absolutely glorious. You know why?

Neil: Why?

Dru: I had the whole office to myself.

Neil: Phyllis didn't come in today?

Dru: Oh, she said she was working out of her home. I mean, her stable. (Snickers) how was your day? How was your day? I wanna hear if you spoke to nick about his wife working at newman enterprises.

Neil: How do you know about that?

Dru: Um, I bumped into sharon at the coffeehouse. Now look, if you have to give her a job, make her feel important, although she said, "I have zero experience." Pfft.

Neil: You know what? I'm surprised that she mentioned that to you. That was very premature.

Dru: Honey, I'm sure she just wanted to get a rise out of me to see if I felt threatened, you know.

Neil: Were you?

Dru: I-I didn't show it. I did not show it. I'm not stupid. She's a newman. If she wanted my j-o-b, she can have my j-o-B. I like her, don't get me wrong, in doses. Just keep her sealed off from moi.

Neil: Send her on long trips.

Dru: Ribbon-cutting ceremonies, all the fluff. She can do all the fluff.

Neil: In other words, you want, uh--

Dru: Off my turf. I want her off my turf.

Nick: Hey.

Sharon: I was just, uh, seein' how I look.

Nick: You look incredible.

Sharon: Thanks. I'm not overdoing it?

Nick: No.

Sharon: 'Cause I realize I'm not going in as a high-powered executive or anything. I mean, maybe I should tone it down a little.

Nick: Babe, if it was up to me, uh... you know, you look amazing. You're the perfect person to represent this company.

Sharon: Well, thank you. I like dressing for success. It feels good.

Nick: I'm sure. So, um... we should talk about this whole job thing.

Sharon: What's wrong?

Nick: Things didn't go exactly the way I wanted.

Bobby: All right. So what is it gonna be? Are we gonna get married at the chancellor estate or not?

Brittany: Just give me some time to think about it.

Bobby: All right. If you say so.

J.T.: This is crazy, brittany. Why would you even hesitate?

Brittany: Because i don't like making big decisions on the spur of the moment. This is my wedding. It's supposed to be the most perfect day of my life.

Mac: Well, would it help if I said I was okay with it?

Brittany: This isn't about you, mackenzie. Really, it's not.

Bobby: Is there something going on here that I don't know about? 'Cause if you're lookin' to postpone this--

Brittany: No! Definitely not. I'm sorry, bobby. I don't mean to sound ungrateful. You're right. This is the perfect solution. It's incredible. I mean, mrs. Chancellor's place...

Bobby: Yeah? Are you sure?

Brittany: Yeah, I'm sure.

Bobby: You know, you had me goin' there?

Brittany: Well, what are we standing around for? We have a ton of work to do.

J.T.: By "we," I hope you mean you and bobby, because, brittany, this wedding stuff, you know, I think I'm-- I think I'm finished. I've had enough. I've paid my debt.

Brittany: You've been wonderful, J.T. The one person who stood by me. I'll never forget it. You know, fenmore's is open late tonight, and I really need to check in with the bridal registry.

Bobby: You want me to walk you to your car?

Brittany: Thanks, honey. Bye, you two.

J.T.: See you later.

Mac: Bye. (Door closes)

Mac: I still think I'm right.

J.T.: Huh?

Mac: What I said earlier, about the wedding. Brittany is trying to prove something.

Sharon: So neil said, "thanks, but no, thanks."

Nick: He doesn't feel there are any openings that are right for you.

Sharon: None?

Nick: None that I was prepared to talk about.

Sharon: Oh, I see. He offered the mailroom.

Nick: Something like that.

Sharon: Gosh, I can't believe it. I can't believe she did it. She actually twisted neil's arm.

Nick: Who?

Sharon: Drucilla. She was afraid that I would get a job there. She was afraid that I'd elbow her out of the way one day because I'm a newman.

Nick: You talked to her about this?

Sharon: Yeah, honey, she was in the coffeehouse, and I was just so excited, I couldn't hold it in.

Nick: And she was against it?

Sharon: Oh, yeah. You better believe it. She was yammering on about how she and phyllis have everything under control. I mean, as if they run the whole division or something.

Nick: She was really that paranoid?

Sharon: I told her that all I wanted to do was learn from her.

Nick: Okay. I think mentioning our plans to someone who is as political as drucilla was a mistake.

Sharon: Obviously. My first big screwup, and I didn't even have the job yet.

Nick: Look, you're not the only one who thinks neil's trying to protect his wife's job. I even mentioned that to neil, but the more I thought about it, it just doesn't make any sense. If nothing else, neil is a straight shooter.

Sharon: But he doesn't want a newman telling him what to do, unless it's victor.

Nick: You may have a point there.

Sharon: Well, then that's your answer. Just go to your father. He'll straighten neil out.

Nick: You know, I thought about that, you know. I-I even threatened it, but...

Sharon: But what's stopping you?

Nick: A couple of things. "A," I don't like going over people's heads. It's just not my style. And it's possible that neil and I could be working together again someday.

Sharon: And "b," you really don't want to go to your father with your hat in your hands.

Nick: Baby, I would do anything for you. But things are still kinda dicey between my dad and me. I could wind up doing you more harm than good.

Sharon: How? Honey, the worst he's gonna say is no.

Nick: Sharon, I just don't want to go to my dad with this, okay? I need you to understand that.

Sharon: Okay. So what are we gonna do?

Nick: I really don't know. Neil seemed pretty firm.

Sharon: Can't you just tell him? Just lay down the law?

Nick: It's not that easy. Trying to force someone to do a favor for you-- I'm really not in a position to do that.

Sharon: Damn. I just thought it was a done deal.

Nick: I'm sorry.

Sharon: It's okay. I guess it was a little too much to hope for, huh?

Neil: Dru, stop right there. I'm not hiring sharon. I told nicholas no.

Dru: You did? Wow. That don't matter. He's gonna go to his daddy anyway.

Neil: Let him.

Dru: You don't think victor will pull rank?

Neil: I can't see victor forcing me to hire on his daughter-in-law.

Dru: We still need a plan, neil. All right? Now, um, if sharon comes-- I mean, when sharon comes back to newman enterprises, she's gonna want a good job. And I was thinking she could work with phyllis, you know, with the computer thing. I was--

Neil: Mnh-mnh-mnh-mnh-mnh. If I'm not gonna allow nicholas newman to tell me how to run the business, I'm certainly not gonna allow my wife to do it either.

Dru: Honey, honey, I just wanted to suggest--

Neil: No, no, case closed. Let's talk about something else, shall we?

Dru: All right. Um, there is something I want to talk to you about.

Neil: Really? What's that?

Dru: I learned something from victor today.

Nick: I'm sorry. I feel bad.

Sharon: Oh, honey, I'm not blaming you. Honest. I'm not. You--you did what you could. And besides, it's not you, it's neil, and I still feel--drucilla.

Nick: Don't get into this with her. It's not gonna help.

Sharon: Well, I'd like to let her have a piece of my mind, but you're right. If I want to learn how to work in an office, I have to also learn how to get what I want without making enemies.

Nick: Hey, this isn't over yet, all right? Just give me some more time.

Sharon: Really?

Nick: Yeah.

Sharon: Thanks. You know, you are the best. You are really the best.

Nick: I was supposed to meet my buddy chad rollins for a beer. I should call and cancel.

Sharon: Oh, is that your friend from high school?

Nick: Yeah, but it's no big deal. I don't want to leave you like this.

Sharon: Oh, don't be silly, honey. Go on. You made plans. I'll be fine.

Nick: You sure?

Sharon: Yeah, I'm positive. I'm a big girl. Have a good time.

Nick: All right. Love you.

Sharon: Love you.

Sharon: Hi, miguel, this is sharon. Listen, I was wondering, could you do me a huge favor?

Nikki: Hi.

Bobby: Well, there's a face that's seen a long day.

Nikki: Oh, thanks.

Bobby: Let me guess. It's the husband again.

Nikki: No. Well, not today, anyway.

Bobby: Oh, come on, out with it. Tell uncle bobby. He'll make it all better.

Nikki: What are you doing here anyway? Aren't you supposed to be getting ready for your wedding?

Bobby: What's there to do? I put on the suit, I say "I do."

Nikki: So all the arrangements are made?

Bobby: Yeah. I guess brittany's got everything covered.

Nikki: Handy.

Bobby: Oh, get this one. The minister--when he finds out what I do for a living-- he says we can't get married in the church anymore. Now he'll do the service, but just not there.

Nikki: God, that is outrageous.

Bobby: Not very christian-like. But you know what? I understand. We did put him on the spot. So now we got everybody freaking out. But I solved the problem. I talked to a friend of yours-- mrs. Chancellor.

Nikki: No kiddi-- I'll bet you she offered her house for the wedding.

Bobby: Oh, yeah. The woman is a saint. Plus, we were running out of options.

Nikki: Wow. Well, I'll bet brittany was thrilled.

Bobby: You know what? To be honest with you, not really.

Brad: Jack, I'm well aware of ash's feelings for victor, thank you.

Jack: And--and that's it? You're not gonna do anything?

Brad: Not do anything? Tell me-- tell me, how do I fight a ghost from her past? And frankly, if she doesn't see what she has with me, I don't know if it's worth saving.

Jack: Whoa, what are you saying now? You're throwing in the towel?

Brad: No, I'm not. But I'll tell you, at times, it is tempting.

Jack: You have to convince her somehow that she's throwing away a lot here, brad.

Brad: Jack, I have done the best I can to be a good husband. Beyond that, I don't know what ash wants.

Jack: Maybe it takes more than being a good husband right now. Maybe you're gonna have to take drastic measures. This week, on the goodwrench

specialist auditions,

Victor: Well, as they say in our country,

bienvenue vers les états-unis,

willkommen in die

vereinigten staaten or bienvenidos

a los estados unidos. (Knock on door)

Victor: (Laughs) that's right. Well, some of us still speak the language of our immigrant forefathers. You bet. All right. We'll talk soon. Bye.

Sharon: Am I interrupting?

Victor: My goodness, what a surprise at this hour.

Sharon: Yeah, I know. I had to get miguel to watch the kids for me. I, uh, I really want to talk to you.

Victor: All right. What about?

Sharon: I was hoping that you could help me out, actually, with a favor.

Victor: Uh-huh. What can I do?

Sharon: Well... I want a job.

Victor: You mean here at the rec center?

Sharon: No, no. Actually, I was hoping for something at newman enterprises, maybe in the cosmetics division.

Victor: Huh. The cosmetics division.

Nikki: What do you mean? You find a beautiful place to have your wedding, and your fiancée's not happy about it?

Bobby: Well, I guess brittany's got a problem with mrs. Chancellor's granddaughter. I guess they don't get along so good.

Nikki: So well. So well.

Bobby: Right, so well.

Nikki: Huh. So brittany and mackenzie, huh?

Bobby: Yeah, that's her. She seems like a nice enough kid.

Nikki: Don't tell me that you had to turn down katherine's offer.

Bobby: Oh, no, no, no, no. I made her see that it was the best option.

Nikki: Not after putting up a fuss, I'll bet.

Bobby: Oh, she was whining. I hate it when she acts like a kid.

Nikki: Well, bobby, she is a kid. I mean, she should be grateful to katherine for offering her house and to you for making it happen. What is she thinking?

Bobby: Well, she's a tense girl. She's gettin' married. Brides are nervous. It's not that big a deal.

Nikki: Yeah, no, no, I know. I know. And you love her. I'm not gonna say anything else.

Bobby: All right, come on. If you have something to say, just say it.

Nikki: Nothing. She's just... she's sweet. She's--she's very young.

Bobby: Yeah, that has crossed my mind. But I gotta tell you, when I look at her, my heart just melts.

Nikki: Yeah, I know, your heart, your brain. Listen, if this is what you really want, I wish you and brittany all the luck and happiness in the world.

Bobby: It's too bad you're taken.

Nikki: What?

Bobby: Did I say somethin'?

Nikki: I didn't hear anything.

J.T.: What is it you think brittany's tryin' to prove?

Mac: I don't know, but haven't you noticed how she's been acting lately?

J.T.: She's stressed about the wedding, but don't most brides kinda wig out?

Mac: Yeah, but it's more than that. Somethin' about her attitude.

J.T.: I don't follow you.

Mac: Well, like, just now, with bobby. She should have been thrilled that he found a place for the ceremony, but instead, she was so hung up on me. It's just--it's so weird.

J.T.: Mac, you're reading too much into this.

Mac: Really?

J.T.: Yeah. I mean, look, you and brittany have never been close. I mean, it's better now, but remember a few years ago? All that stuff with billy? Maybe she's insecure or somethin'. Who knows?

Mac: Brittany? Insecure around me? Yeah, sure.

J.T.: Mac, look, brittany's a tough chick to figure out. That's nothin' new. Anyway, I've got to do some studyin'. I'll be in my room. , But far cheaper than what she is, probably. Dollar prize. 39 keep moving get close are you to crisis mode in terms of not having water?

We're on boys got a man.

We just lost.

Losing there's nine of us. We're all brute str

Sharon: I can't quite tell what you're thinkin', victor.

Victor: You want a job in newman enterprises' cosmetics division?

Sharon: Mm-hmm. I mean, I realize that I don't have any experience, but I am like a sponge. I'm ready to absorb whatever I have to. I'll learn whatever I have to learn. I'll work hard, I promise.

Victor: Listen. You'd be a great addition to any staff. But would this be an appropriate thing for you to do right now?

Sharon: Well, I want to, badly.

Victor: What about the children?

Sharon: Oh, there are so many women in this country that have jobs and families at the same time.

Victor: Sweetheart, as far as I'm concerned, there are too many women who have the responsibility of putting food on the table, who have to have a job. And women are just as capable as men are in whatever job they do. I have no doubt about that, but that's not the point here. The point is-- you don't have to work. Your responsibility lies with raising your children.

Sharon: Victor, I love the kids, they're great. But they really don't need me now in the way that they did when they were younger, so I'm looking for something now for me.

Victor: Sharon, do you know the kind of commitment you would have to make if you were to work at newman enterprises? It's at least eight hours a day, often ten hours a day. If there's a big job, you don't go home until it's finished. If there's a sales meeting out of town, you take a plane, no questions asked. Is that the kind of commitment you want to make right now?

Sharon: You're turning me down.

Victor: As far as I'm concerned, I'm doing you a favor.

Sharon: Look, nick wants this for me, too, you know? I mean, he even talked to neil already, though neil said no.

Victor: Sharon, please, I'm not going to override neil's decision. Why don't you come back to me when your pressures at home are less daunting?

Sharon: They're not now.

Victor: Please sit down.

Victor: That's what I thought when I built this company from the ground up. When victoria and nicholas were children, I'd come home late at night. They were asleep. I thought, "well, that's fine. They look happy." Nothing wrong with that. Then I wouldn't be there for soccer games or baseball games or football games. I thought, "well, it's all right." You know, "they don't miss me that much." But they do, and they did. And they do mind. For the rest of their lives, they do mind. Don't make the mistakes I've made. You have two beautiful children. Thank god for that. Please go home and be with them.

Sharon: Um, would you mind not saying anything to nick, about me asking you?

Victor: Don't worry. I won't, okay? Let me take you to the door.

Victor: Thanks for coming by. Bye.

Neil: When did you speak with victor?

Dru: Today. I stopped by the recreation center to check on devon.

Neil: How's he doin'?

Dru: Let's just say he didn't even want to look at me.

Neil: Give him some time.

Dru: Okay.

Neil: So what piece of news did victor give you?

Dru: It has to do with devon's father.

Neil: The man's dead, I thought.

Dru: So did I, but he's very much alive, neil.

Neil: So how did victor know about this?

Dru: Got it from the horse's mouth.

Neil: Devon?

Dru: Yeah. Amazing, huh? It could potentially be good news.

Neil: Or potentially a disaster?

Dru: Why would you say that?

Neil: Dru, come on. What kind of a man abandons his own son? I mean, there's a reason why devon isn't advertising his whereabouts. Obviously, he's a loser.

Dru: Neil, listen, um, they haven't talked to each other in years, and people change.

Neil: It's a long shot.

Dru: Neil, if we find this man and we discover that he's a loser, then forget about the whole thing. We'll never mention it to devon. But if we find him, and he wants a second chance with his son, why wouldn't we help that along?

Neil: I suppose it's worth looking into.

Dru: Okay.

Lily: What's worth looking into?

Dru: Hi, honey.

Lily: Hi.

Brad: Ash feels the way she feels, jack, and saying I have to take drastic measures isn't gonna change that.

Jack: Then maybe you've let this go on too long.

Brad: Maybe you ought to mind your own business.

Jack: You can't keep doing what you're doing, brad.

Brad: I can't-- I can't do anything. Newman owns a piece of her heart. Ash has to decide where she belongs.

Jack: Then you're living in la-la land, too. Whatever misguided feelings my sister may have for that man are only gonna cause grief and heartache for your family. It's time for you to take action, and I mean now.

Ashley: I'm starting to wonder, victor, if I'll ever be able to get through to brad. He refuses to even accept the possibility that you might be able to enrich abby's life somehow.

Victor: Well, the problem is that he continues to see me as his adversary. He wants to win at all costs.

Ashley: Well, I was hoping to bring you good news, anyway.

Victor: And I have a feeling brad is thinking that what he does is best for her as well.

Ashley: How? By denying abby somebody who should actually be in her life?

Victor: Unfortunately, yeah.

Ashley: Did you mean what you said earlier? About being happy that abby was yours?

Victor: You and i were deprived of that, weren't we? Do you know how much I was in love with you?

Ashley: We were in love with each other.

Victor: You and I should have shared that joy of a child. But it wasn't to be.

Ashley: I'm so happy

you're a part of abby's life. And she's so fortunate to have you, you know that?

Victor: Nikki thinks that my attempt to connect with abby is hurting your marriage.

Ashley: It's been difficult. Brad's not making it any easier. I guess he's trying, but...

Victor: He's living with a mistaken notion that I'm trying to take abby's affection away from him.

Ashley: I know you're upset because abby doesn't want to go riding anymore, after that fall she took, and, you know, it was so sweet of you to give her that horse, I mean, really.

Victor: Thank you for saying that, but I must tell you, I feel terrible about that incident.

Ashley: No, well, just give her a little time. Kids bounce back.

Victor: Well, I wonder. I wonder if she won't always connect me to that injury.

Ashley: Well, let's just hope that the opportunity will present itself to change that.

Victor: Yeah, let's hope.

Bobby: Hey.

Bartender: What'll it be?

Bobby: How about a scotch?

Bobby: Thank you.

Bobby: What's a pretty girl like you doing sittin' at a bar alone?

Ashley: I could say the same thing about you.

Bobby: You know, I've been called a lot of things, but never a pretty girl.

Ashley: I meant the drinking alone part.

Bobby: Yeah, well, I'm having a last hurrah. I'm going to be losing my freedom soon.

Ashley: Oh, going to prison?

Bobby: Nah. No, no, no, no. I'm just not going to be allowed to talk to pretty girls in bars anymore, well, not without gettin' in trouble.

Ashley: Oh, I see, you're getting married.

Bobby: Good guess.

Ashley: Well, good luck to you.

Bobby: Thank you. You're ashley abbott, aren't you?

Ashley: Uh-huh.

Bobby: Yeah, I thought you looked familiar. I saw your picture in the paper a few times.

Ashley: Hmm, yeah, well, the price of notoriety.

Bobby: You seem a little down.

Ashley: Nothing I really want to talk about.

Bobby: All right. Well, if you change your mind later, I'm a pretty good listener.

Ashley: Did you ever think that you were living in one reality and then later, I mean, it could be years later, you realize you've been kidding yourself?

Bobby: Yeah, kidding yourself can get you in a lot of trouble.

Ashley: Yeah, tell me about it. Not to mention, it could hurt a lot of people.

Bobby: Yeah, I know what you mean.

Ashley: Um, are we talking about you now?

Bobby: You think?

Ashley: You having second thoughts about your wedding?

Bobby: Uh, you know, just some nerves. It is my first time, you know.

Ashley: I beg your pardon, but you don't seem really happy about it.

Bobby: No, no, no, I am. It's just, you know, I've always been used to being very independent, but actually I am lookin' forward to it.

Ashley: Okay. Whatever you say.

Bobby: Hey, I'm bobby marsino.

Ashley: Right, oh, yeah. You own that men's club downtown. I saw, um, an article or an ad or something in the paper.

Bobby: Hey, it's the price of notoriety, right?

Ashley: Isn't nikki newman involved with that somehow?

Bobby: Ah, yeah, yeah, she's great. Are you a friend of hers?

Ashley: Uh, yeah, yeah, yeah, we know each other.

Bobby: You know, she's a class act. The customers love her.

Ashley: Hmm. Kinda seems like a strange place for a woman like nikki to be spending her evenings, doesn't it? Well, then again, she was a stripper, right?

Bobby: Yeah, a long time ago, but it's not so strange. You know, nikki's got a real knack for people. She likes to mingle. It's too bad that her husband doesn't approve of it.

Ashley: How so?

Bobby: Well, she's got to be married to the most uptight guy I've ever met in my life. You've probably heard of him, victor newman? (Knock at door)

Victor: Come in.

Nikki: Hello, darling.

Victor: Hello, sweetheart.

Nikki: Mmm.

Victor: Thank goodness. How nice to see you.

Nikki: How are you? Are you hungry?

Victor: I'm famished. How'd you know?

Nikki: Oh, I just had a feeling, so I stopped by the lodge and got you and devon a hot meal.

Victor: Ooh, it smells wonderful. What did you bring?

Nikki: I have those garlic mashed potatoes that you love, there's green beans almondine, and a nice juicy steak. I hope it's hot.

Victor: You know, at the moment, I don't care. I don't care how hot it is. That's so nice of you to do this.

Nikki: Well, it was my pleasure. You should have seen the look on devon's face when I gave him his dinner. He just was thrilled to be treated with kindness.

Victor: Sadly enough, that boy doesn't have much of that in his life. Anyway... something different about you. You're in-- you're like your old self again. What happened?

Nikki: Really?

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Nikki: Well, I think I'm just, um, starting to put the past behind me.

Victor: Well, I'm very glad to hear that.

Nikki: It may mean never finding joshua cassen's brother, but I just need to find a way to move forward with my life.

Victor: I can't begin to tell you how happy I am that you made that decision. I guess we'll finally get back to normal. I love that smile on your face. It makes me happy that you did this.

Dru: Honey, did you know that, um, devon's father is alive?

Lily: Yeah, he hasn't seen him in years. Mom, I don't like beets.

Dru: Honey, I know, but they detoxify the blood. They're good for you.

Lily: Gross.

Neil: You know, I was under the impression that devon's father had passed away.

Dru: Mm-hmm.

Lily: Well, I know that he told me that his mom was a crackhead and his dad was just gone, period.

Dru: Okay, okay, honey, anything that we can find out about his dad would be helpful, so...

Lily: Why?

Neil: Because we'd like to locate him. Maybe he's cleaned up his act.

Lily: That would be really, really good for devon.

Dru: Yeah.

Neil: It certainly would be. But listen, don't tell him what we're doin', all right? We don't want him to get his hopes up.

Lily: Okay, I won'T. I'll try to find out something, but he's been kind of edgy these days.

Dru: I know. I know, honey. Just try to finesse some information out of him. We don't want him to become suspicious, but anything we can do to help--

Lily: No, of course we should. I'll do it. I'll talk to him tomorrow.

Dru: Thank you, baby. Popular type of canning jar off store shelves after an edmonton woman was seriously hurt. Our trouble shooter will explain. And claire checks in with first look at the weather.

Brad: I've heard enough from you, all right? Other than newman, you're the last person who should be giving marital advice.

Jack: Ouch! That's the thanks I get for looking out for you?

Brad: I can look out for myself.

Jack: Then maybe you better open your eyes first.

Brad: (Scoffs) you know, there was a time when you couldn't have cared less if I was in your sister's life. In fact, you thought she was better off without me.

Jack: Well, now I think she's better off with you. Certainly, considering the competition.

Brad: (Chuckles) lesser of two evils, huh?

Jack: The lesser of several evils.

Jack: Brad, it is time for you to step up to the plate. Ashley is not going to give up on newman on her own.

Brad: I don't know if she'll ever give up on him, jack, not completely.

Jack: Then I guess the question is, will she give up on you and all that the two of you have? Only you can stop that, bradley. Don't let that happen.

Ashley: Well, everybody knows who victor newman is.

Bobby: Yeah, the guy is filthy rich.

Ashley: You can't fault him for that, can you?

Bobby: No. I still think the guy's a jerk, at least he is to nikki.

Ashley: How do you mean?

Bobby: He treats her like a trophy wife. He's a control freak, and I don't know what the hell she sees in him.

Ashley: Well, maybe she loves him.

Bobby: Hmm, she claims she does. But they don't seem to act like two people that really care about each other.

Ashley: Hmm. Why do you say that?

Bobby: Well, when nikki's down at the club, she just--she really shines. And once somebody mentions victor's name, it's like this big cloud comes over her head.

Ashley: You sure you're not just imagining that?

Bobby: No, no, no, no. I can read people. Besides, she tells me things. Sounds like victor's so busy doing his own thing that he doesn't give nikki the attention that she needs. Women need that, or they wilt and die.

Ashley: With an attitude like that, it sounds like you're gonna make a wonderful husband. (Laughs)

Bobby: I hope so. Thank you. Um, listen, if you ever... want to bend an ear or whatever, you know where to find me.

Ashley: Thanks for the conversation. Good luck with your marriage.

Nikki: Mm, it's getting late.

Victor: It is, isn't it? Oh, it's too bad. Well, let me take you to the car.

Nikki: I want to be with you tonight.

Victor: Sweetheart, I can't leave here. I'm in charge of everyone here, you know.

Nikki: I know. I thought maybe I'd stay here.

Victor: You mean, here at the rec center?

Nikki: Mm-hmm.

Victor: But then you would have to sleep on a cot. That's not too comfortable.

Nikki: Oh, I think I could stick it out.

Victor: Think so?

Nikki: Contrary to popular belief, I'm not the princess and the pea.

Victor: Uh-huh.

Nikki: I want to be with my husband.

Victor: I would have to hear that.

Nikki: I don't care where we sleep. It's not important.

Victor: Mm-hmm?

Nikki: Anyway, I had something a little cozier in mind than a cot.

Victor: What did you have in mind?

Nikki: You have sleeping bags around here, don't you?

Victor: I think I could find one.

Nikki: Good, then you have an overnight guest.

Victor: Hmm.

Victor: I'm gonna find a sleeping bag for us.

Nikki: Okay.

Victor: I love the idea.

Nikki: I just want to be with you. If this place is good enough for you, it's good enough for me.

Victor: Mmm. I'll find one right now.

Nikki: Thanks.

Victor: Mm-hmm.
