By Eric

Nikki: Mmm. It's good waking up in your arms like this. Let's stay here all day.

Victor: It was beautiful last night, wasn't it?

Nikki: Mmm. Mm-hmm. The rec center's not so bad, you know?

Victor: Although we slept on the floor?

Nikki: Well, sleeping on the floor's not bad, but I like what we did better. I can't remember the last time we did something like this.

Victor: Mm-hmm. Try never.

Nikki: Hmm, that's not true.

Victor: Hmm?

Nikki: Don't you remember? Years ago, we used to fall asleep on the bearskin rug in front of the fireplace.

Victor: And afterwards, I would feed you strawberries with whipped cream.

Nikki: Yeah. Yeah, that was fun, too.

Victor: I couldn't get enough of you then. I can't get enough of you now.

Brad: Come on, honey. Careful there. Let's go. We gotta get you to school. Go say good-bye to mommy.

Abby: Hi, mommy. Bye, mommy.

Ashley: Oh, hold on a second, sweetie, come here. Daddy's not taking you to school today.

Brad: I'm not?

Ashley: Um, no. I called frances, and I asked her to do it.

Brad: Okay. Then I guess we'll say good-bye right here.

Abby: That's okay. I'll see you after school. Then I can tell you everything that happened today.

Brad: Do you promise? Okay, I can't wait. (Doorbell rings)

Brad: That must be frances.

Ashley: I'll take the coat. Thanks. Here, babydoll, let's put this on. Here ya go.

Brad: Hi, frances.

Frances: Good morning, mr. Carlton. Is abby ready?

Brad: Yes. Good morning. Come on in. She's all set.

Frances: Hi.

Ashley: Hi, frances. You have a great day. Okay, doll?

Abby: Okay, mommy.

Brad: Love you.

Abby: I love you, too, daddy.

Ashley: Bye, sweetie.

Brad: Have a good day.

Abby: I will.

Frances: Bye.

Abby: Bye, mommy.

Ashley: Bye.

Gloria: Mmm, these muffins are delicious, john.

John: Mmm. Mrs. Martinez used one of mamie's old recipes.

Gloria: She-- mamie's very special to you, isn't she?

John: Well, I'd be lost without her. You know, years ago, I had a mild heart attack, and she treats me like a baby since then. If I just cheat a little bit on my diet, I get a 20-minute lecture.

Gloria: Well, I hope you'll let me take care of you now. It's the least I can do to repay you for all your kindness.

John: You know, since you came into my life, you have taken years off my age. Do you know that my health has actually improved?

Gloria: Well, you sure don't act your age in bed, you tiger, you. (Chuckles)

John: Well, you brought back feelings I thought I forgot.

Gloria: I can't wait till we go on our trip.

John: Now you're not in a rush, are you?

Gloria: No, of course not. Half the fun is planning. Hawaii, tahiti, whatever.

John: Whatever.

Gloria: It's gonna be heavenly.

John: Well, I will bring back some delightful brochures, and we will take our time planning. How's that?

Gloria: Great.

John: All right. You know what? I'm gonna get us some more coffee. I shall return.

Gloria: I hope so.

Mac: Morning, sleepyhead.

J.T.: (Mumbles)

Mac: Want some coffee?

J.T.: Yeah, thanks.

Mac: Here you go. Late night?

J.T.: (Clears throat) I was up studying.

Mac: Good for you. How'd it go?

J.T.: Um, it went. No, I'm still trying to play catch-up, thanks to brittany.

Mac: Why? 'Cause you been helping her out with the wedding stuff?

J.T.: Mm-hmm, but no more. I'm all done.

Mac: You know, I've been thinking about our conversation last night, about brittany, how she's been acting weird.

J.T.: You still stuck on that?

Mac: Yes. I don't get it. I mean, her wedding day is just right around the corner. It's the biggest day of her life. She's not even excited about it. Something's off, J.T. Something is really off.

Brittany: How are your waffles, mr. Marsino?

Bobby: Mmm, excellent. And now is your bagel, mrs. Marsino?

Brittany: Not yet, bobby. That's bad luck.

Bobby: Who says?

Brittany: Me. We're not married yet.

Bobby: Yeah, but we are gonna be soon, and I just want to get used to the way it sounds, mrs.--

Brittany: Don't say it again.

Bobby: You're funny.

Brittany: That's right, and don't you forget it.

Bobby: Well, what do you know? It's father of the year.

Brittany: Excuse me, but that's my father.

Bobby: Mm-hmm. Yeah, the one that's too good for everybody.

Brittany: Not really.

Bobby: Well, he's too good for the likes of me.

Brittany: I'm going to go talk to him.

Bobby: Look, you know what, don'T. I'm sorry I even said anything. It doesn't bother me.

Brittany: Well, it bothers me.

Brittany: Daddy?

Frederick: Brittany.

Brittany: Don't go. Sit down. I want to talk to you.

Lauren: Maybe I should leave town more often.

Michael: Bite your tongue. So how was L.A.?

Lauren: I wasn't there long enough to tell.

Michael: Mm-hmm. Well, I missed you.

Lauren: You okay?

Michael: Hmm, there's probably nothin' wrong.

Lauren: Tell me.

Michael: Well, I have not seen or heard from kevin for awhile.

Lauren: Really? Do you think it had anything to do with that conversation you had with him?

Michael: I think it had to do with a lot of conversations, one of which I had with gloria, in which she told me that she spilled the beans about our relationship to him. So I'm sure that his pride is wounded, and I am sure that he's hurt we didn't tell him.

Lauren: We didn't have a choice. We didn't know how he was going to react either way.

Michael: It was hard for him, but he took it like a man.

Lauren: Or so you assumed?

Michael: Well, the fact that I haven't seen him for two nights tells me that he's probably having more trouble with this relationship than, uh, we previously thought.

Gloria: All this talk of the tropics and swimming in clear, blue waters put me in the mood for a nice warm bath. Be a dear and run me one, will you? I'll rinse these cups and put the dishes away.

John: Well, that would be my pleasure. And you know what?

Gloria: What?

John: Maybe I'll even scrub your back.

Gloria: Ooh, what a naughty boy, but you know that, don't you?

John: Mmm, it's all your fault, too.

Gloria: Go on.

John: All right.

Gloria: (Chuckles) I'll be up in a minute.

John: Okay.

Gloria: Kevin, what in the hell are you doing here?

Kevin: I have to talk to you, mom. It's important.

Gloria: Shh, all right. Come in. Keep quiet. Make it quick.

Kevin: Okay, I know. I sorta have a problem.

Gloria: Well, you're gonna have an even bigger one if john catches you here.

Kevin: Well, I had to come to you. There's nobody else.

Gloria: What's wrong with your brother?

Kevin: Michael and i aren't exactly getting along these days.

Gloria: So what else is new?

Kevin: Mom, he stole my girl.

Gloria: I know, sweetie. Lauren.

Kevin: Yes. Considering what's going on with those two, I couldn't stay in that apartment any longer.

Gloria: Well, if you have some ridiculous idea about staying here, you are out of your mind.

Kevin: Well, I already have.

Gloria: Have? What? What are you saying?

Kevin: Well, I thought-- I thought about you living in this big mansion, and, I, uh, I took a chance that nobody would find out.

Gloria: Find out what? Look, kevin, what have you done?

Kevin: I spent the last two nights in abbott's pool house.

Gloria: What?!

Dru: Oh, hey.

Phyllis: Oh, god.

Dru: Oh, god, what?

Phyllis: Oh, god. I should have had decaf.

Dru: Oh, are you preggers?

Phyllis: What?!

Dru: It's none of my business, but you should eat first.

Phyllis: Excuse me. What makes you think I would be pregnant? I may have been eating more dairy, but... it's none of your business what I am.

Dru: Hey, I'm sure it's about you and damon. I can smell it.

Phyllis: Well, take your smells and go someplace else.

Dru: You know, he was sitting here at this very bar, heavy on the whiskey, I might add, really twisted, because you were out of town.

Phyllis: Let me tell you something. He's going through something very heavy right now.

Dru: So he alluded to. So he alluded to.

Phyllis: Has me really, really messed up. (Sighs) it's very upsetting, drucilla, and it--and it's really affected my kid.

Dru: You know, phyllis, it's tough to tolerate you on a good day. Let's just call this a good day. Maybe I can help you out. May I have coffee, please? (Doorbell rings) (doorbell rings)

Damon: Daniel.

Daniel: Damon, uh, may I come in?

Damon: No. No, not really. It's not a great time.

Daniel: You know, I-I'm kinda worried about my mom. Thank you.

Damon: You want somethin'? Somethin' to eat?

Daniel: No. No, I'm okay.

Damon: What's goin' on with your mother?

Daniel: You tell me. Ever since this trip that she took, it's like she's been on another planet.

Damon: How do you mean?

Daniel: So she's freaked out half the time. The other half, she's barely even there. Yeah, I know this has something to do with you, and I can't help but wonder what it is.

Damon: Daniel, it's complicated, and I know that if your mother wanted you to know more than you do, she'd have told you.

Daniel: Yeah, I figured you'd say that.

Daniel: This thing's cool. Is this real?

Come on feel the noise

Victor: You made me happy last night when you said you wanted to sleep here, although I know this place doesn't hold exactly good memories for you.

Nikki: Well, no. In fact, when I first walked in here, I was overwhelmed with all these memories that I had repressed for so long. I didn't know how to process them.

Victor: Hmm, isn't that ironic that this very place was the factory where your dad once worked?

Nikki: Yeah, but it's changed.

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Nikki: You changed it. You changed it from a place of tragedy to a place of hope. You should be very proud of yourself. I am.

Victor: Nikki?

Nikki: Hmm?

Victor: There was something sad in your voice last night. Did something happen?

Brad: (Sighs) ash? Baby? I've been doing a lot of thinking, soul searching. I've been real stressed out the last few days. You have, too. Well, it's time we did something about it. We can't go on this way.

Ashley: Yeah, I--I agree. We can'T.

Brad: Well, good. I'm glad. We need to get away.

Ashley: That's not possible right now, honey.

Brad: We just have to make it possible. We need to, baby, for our own good. We can't put this off.

Ashley: Brad, there's a million other things that we can't possibly put off. It's just not-- it's just not realistic.

Brad: Why, I think it's realistic. We have to do something to get back on some kind of positive footing. We both know things haven't been right.

Ashley: Yeah.

Brad: It's not your fault. It's not my fault. We've both been contributing.

Ashley: And what? You think that A... a getaway's gonna help all that?

Brad: (Sighs) honey, it's obvious there's a gulf between us. Now we need to do something to bridge it. We got to put all this stuff behind us. I don't see that happening here.

Frederick: So you wanna talk? Kitten, if this is about this thing you're doing...

Brittany: Daddy, it's a wedding. I'm getting married. You can say it.

Frederick: I don't want to.

Brittany: Because I'm not marrying prince william?

Frederick: No, you certainly are not.

Brittany: Daddy, there's only one of him. Everybody else in the world is just one of the regular people. Bobby is a regular person.

Frederick: You really believe that?

Brittany: I believe that bobby truly loves me.

Frederick: Well, of course he does. I mean, who wouldn't? Look at you. You're a prize, brittany. In his world, a girl like you-- unspoiled, classy-- you're the jackpot.

Brittany: So then, he doesn't love me? People like him probably can't even feel love, right?

Frederick: (Sighs) sure they do. Everybody's capable of love. I'm not saying bobby marsino's not human. I'm just saying, sweetheart, he's not the man I want you married to.

Brittany: So when mom married you, what did her parents have to say?

Frederick: I'll admit it. I had nothing, and your mother came from a very well-to-do family. But I had a job, and I was working hard, working my way up in a legitimate, respectable business. Her father slapped me on the back, and he told me to keep my shoulder to the wheel and my nose to the grindstone and to take care of his baby.

Brittany: Which is something you could never say to bobby.

Frederick: Not in this lifetime. I'm sorry.

J.T.: Kinda stretchin' things, aren't ya?

Mac: You can't deny that brittany's been acting a little bit bizarre.

J.T.: Why? Because she's not behaving like a typical bride, bein' all giddy and bouncin' off the walls? That's not really brittany's style.

Mac: Well, all I'm saying is that it just doesn't feel right to me.

J.T.: Mac, look, just because she's handling it her own way doesn't mean she's not excited about this wedding. People are different, you know?

Mac: Yeah, I know.

J.T.: All right, so let it go. Tryin' to figure out brittany is a waste of time, trust me.

Mac: That's just the thing, though. I already have her figured out.

J.T.: What are you talkin' about?

Mac: I know why she's been acting so weird.

J.T.: You do?

Mac: Yeah.

J.T.: Well, enlighten me.

Mac: Deep down, she really doesn't want to marry bobby.

J.T.: What? How can you say that? All she does is talk about how crazy she is about that jerk.

Mac: Exactly, it's all talk. But when I see her, when I see the two of them together...

J.T.: Yeah?

Mac: The connection is missing.

J.T.: Well, then, why is she marrying the guy?

Mac: Because she's too afraid to admit who she's really in love with.

J.T.: Okay, who's that?

Mac: You. She's in love with you, J.T.

Kay: That's enough.

Bobby: Hello, mrs. Chancellor.

Kay: Oh, mr. Marsino, good morning.

Bobby: Do you mind if I sit for a minute?

Kay: No, no, please do. Please do.

Bobby: So I spoke to my fiancée about your generous offer to use your home for a wedding. She's thrilled.

Kay: It is my pleasure.

Bobby: I hope this doesn't cause you any problems.

Kay: What? A wedding ceremony? What could possibly go wrong?

Bobby: I got pretty much everything covered. You shouldn't have to do anything. It's gonna be a slam dunk.

Kay: Well, if there's anything I can do to help...

Bobby: Well, I don't know. You've done enough just by letting us use your home. But I do have one suggestion.

Kay: And what's that?

Bobby: Well, if you've got any good stuff lying around, you know, valuables, antiques, you might wanna lock 'em up somewhere safe.

Gloria: Kevin, are you insane? What were you thinking?

Kevin: You're getting upset over nothing. Nobody found me.

Gloria: But that's not the point.

Kevin: Shh. Relax. Besides, one day soon, I'm gonna be welcome here.

Gloria: Oh, kevin, wait. Not so fast. We don't know that yet.

Kevin: Oh, come on, mom. I saw the way abbott looked at you. You got the guy wrapped around your finger.

Gloria: Kevin, we are just beginning to get close. This could ruin everything.

Kevin: Oh, please. Looks to me like it's a done deal, and you know what I think?

Gloria: What?

Kevin: I think that, uh... I think that pretty soon I'm gonna be john abbott's stepson, free to come and go as I please, mom. You and me living the american dream. Bran muffins?

Gloria: Kevin, I...

Lauren: You wanted this place to yourself.

Michael: Quite frankly, to be blunt, I'm a little thrilled.

Lauren: Feeling a little guilty about that?

Michael: What kind of brother does that make me?

Lauren: Makes you human, michael. After everything kevin has put you through, it's natural you would just crave a little privacy for yourself.

Michael: So... you don't think I'm some uncaring monster?

Lauren: Because you don't want the guy underfoot for a few days? Quite frankly, if you didn't feel that way, I'd think you were a little scary.

Michael: You know, it amazes me how I allowed them to worm their way back into my life-- kevin and gloria.

Lauren: Which just proves under all of this, you're just a softie at heart.

Michael: Well, don't tell anyone. You'll ruin my reputation.

Lauren: Yeah? What reputation is that?

Michael: Oh, you read my press release. I am a selfish... mercenary... reprobate without a shred of conscience.

Lauren: Oh, but, baby, you're a lawyer. Aren't people supposed to think that of you?

Michael: So funny.

Damon: Don't touch that.

Daniel: Why not?

Damon: Why don't you come on back in here for a minute?

Damon: Are you sure it's really your mother you're worried about?

Daniel: Why else would i have come here to see you?

Damon: I'm thinking maybe it's because you're not real comfortable not being the center of phyllis' universe.

Daniel: You know, don't turn this around on me, 'cause you're way off base.

Damon: Am I? You know, phyllis can be a mother to you and a friend to someone else. They ain't mutually exclusive, you know?

Daniel: Yeah, that's fine, but that's not what's happening. It's all about you these days.

Damon: How so?

Daniel: You know, mom made all these big speeches about how getting to know her son was the most important thing. Well, instead, she's been completely and totally focused on you. She's a basket case. She's snapping at me all the time. It's like she can't even stand to have me around.

Damon: Well, you gotta admit, you have given her more than her share of headaches, right?

Daniel: Yeah, well, you know, if you're not going to tell me what's going on here, can you at least tell me how long I'm gonna have to deal with this? Is this just a little crisis situation, or is your life one big melodrama that's gonna suck my mom in for eternity?

Phyllis: You want to help me? Wow, there's a first. Well, unless you have a personal connection with the dalai lama, I don't think you can.

Dru: Phyllis, don't be ridiculous. I'm talking about a great tai chi class that the club offers--serenity.

Phyllis: I'm not interested in serenity. This is for damon.

Dru: Oh, mr. Mellow himself.

Phyllis: I don't know. Damon porter could take a couple lessons in nonviolent behavior right now.

Dru: Boy, your hormones are messed up. I mean, violent? Damon? Get outta here.

Phyllis: You don't know the man as well as you think.

Dru: I don't know him at all, phyllis. Why don't you fill me in?

Phyllis: Okay, let me tell you something. There's somebody from damon's past who did him wrong that he's hell-bent on paying back.

Dru: (Scoffs) that sounds like a woman from back in the day.

Phyllis: No, no, no, that's kid's stuff. This is very, very serious. Let me just tell you, very serious, okay? Thanks for wanting to help me, but you can't, okay? I don't think anyone can.

Dru: You are serious.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Dru: Listen, no promises, but, um, maybe I could talk to neil and see if we could take daniel off your hands until this whole thing blows over.

Phyllis: What? You would do that for me?

Dru: No promises.

Phyllis: Well, I mean, he's just gotten used to being with his mom. You know? I don't want to shuffle my kid around from house to house, so thanks but no, thanks. Thanks.

Dru: What an ingrate. You know, here I am, offering my home. You said it was an emergency. It never would've worked anyway.

Phyllis: What are you talking about? I said thank you. Don't get all bent out of shape. (Cell phone rings)

Phyllis: This is phyllis.

Dominic: Phyllis, it's dominic hughes.

J.T.: Are you out of your mind?

Mac: No, I'm sure of it. Brittany is in love with you.

J.T.: Oh, okay. Where are you getting this?

Mac: I see it.

J.T.: Oh, you see it. Okay. Well, you need some glasses then.

Mac: Listen to me. That thing that's missing between her and bobby...

J.T.: Yeah?

Mac: That chemistry? She has it with you. It's totally obvious.

J.T.: No, it's not obvious. I don't see it.

Mac: That's because you're too afraid to admit the reality.

J.T.: The reality. Okay, which is, uh, what?

Mac: That you are in love with her.

J.T.: I'm in love with brittany? (Laughs) this just keeps getting better and better.

Mac: I know you are, J.T.

J.T.: Mac, stop. Okay? Stop. I don't wanna talk about this anymore.

Mac: Admit it. When you're with brittany, something happens. There's a connection. Even when you're fighting, it's like you're testing each other, seeing how far you can go before one of you makes a move. It's like some weird courting ritual.

J.T.: Where the hell do you get this stuff, mac?

Mac: You love her. Why can't you just acknowledge that?

J.T.: I don't know. Maybe because, uh, I don'T.

Mac: Why are you so nervous?

J.T.: I'm not nervous. I'm not nervous. What you're saying is absolutely ridiculous.

Mac: Okay. Prove me wrong. Look me in the eye and tell me that you do not wanna be with brittany.

Brittany: Dad, it would mean so much to me.

Frederick: I could say the same thing.

Brittany: What, if I would marry someone else?

Frederick: Kitten, if you would just rethink this whole thing-- I don't care. Live with the guy if you must.

Brittany: Daddy, I wanna marry him.

Frederick: You have absolutely no business getting married at your age. Honey, it is a huge commitment. And don't go thinking that if things don't go well, that you can get a divorce. It's a horrible experience, and it's one you never fully recover from, especially if, god forbid, you end up having a child with this man. Just--just live with him, will you? I'll pay for a nice apartment for the two of you. Hell, I'll pay for anything.

Brittany: Dad, this is getting pathetic.

Frederick: I know. I know. I feel... I feel pathetic. Brittany, I raised you.

Frederick: I changed your diapers, I bandaged your knees, and I put you through school.

Frederick: And now i can't even talk to you. And what's worse is you look at me like a fool that doesn't know anything about you. But I do.

Brittany: Why can't you come to my wedding and show your respect for my choice? My choice, daddy. Not yours. Mine.

Frederick: I can'T. I love you too much, sweetheart. I'm sorry.

Kay: Are you suggesting that one or-- or some of your wedding guests may steal something?

Bobby: Oh, no, no, no. What I'm trying to say is that some of my friends are a little on the klutzy side.

Kay: Uh-huh. You mean like bulls in a china shop?

Bobby: Yeah, that's what I mean.

Kay: (Chuckles) bobby marsino, you are very, very refreshing.

Bobby: I don't know. A little different than your rich society friends?

Kay: Oh, absolutely. There's not a pretentious bone in your body.

Bobby: Well, thank you. I have to tell you, mrs. Chancellor, I think you're very cool, too, and you're letting me use your home, and we're practically strangers.

Kay: No, no, no, not really. I mean, after all, you are a friend of jill's, and nikki has nothing but good things to say about you.

Bobby: Really?

Kay: Mm-hmm. In fact, I've noticed a certain spring in her step since she started helping you out with your club.

Bobby: Yeah, nikki's a fantastic woman. She's one of a kind.

Kay: Yes, she is. She's also my oldest and dearest friend, and she is like a daughter, and I want nothing but her happiness.

Bobby: I think she'd be a little happier if she got rid of that guy she's married to.

Kay: Victor?

Bobby: Yeah, I don't see what she sees in him.

Kay: Well, their... their relationship has a lot of drama to it, you know, the way they met and their breakups, but they always, always find their way back to each other.

Bobby: Yeah. Nikki's just such a firecracker. She could have any guy that she wants-- guys who would give her what she needs-- but she stays with newman? (Chuckles) there's no accounting for taste, I guess.

Nikki: It's more what didn't happen last night.

Victor: Meaning what?

Nikki: I can't talk about it right now. I don't wanna talk about it right now.

Victor: You can tell me anything, you know.

Nikki: I know.

Victor: Okay.

Nikki: It's just that we haven't had a morning like this in so long.

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Nikki: I don't want anything to intrude upon it.

Victor: Mm-hmm. You know that I will always listen to you?

Nikki: Yes, I do. It means so much to me that you would say that.

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Nikki: And I can turn to you and that you wanted me to be with you last night...

Victor: Well, sweetheart, I want you to be with me every night.

Nikki: Hmm.

Victor: Look at me. I often realize that my life wouldn't be complete without you.

Nikki: Oh, victor. Hearing you say that... and enjoying this very moment, it just makes me forget about every else.

Victor: No matter what we do or where we go... we're always together.

Nikki: I love you.

Damon: No. It is not always like this, nor will it always be like this. Yes, there is something going on. I just can't put a simple time frame on it.

Daniel: Okay.

Damon: You know, perhaps you're looking at this thing all wrong.

Daniel: Yeah? What do you mean?

Damon: You could be grateful you got the sort of mother who looks after her friends. Daniel, look, I am not at all pleased with some of the choices your mother has made lately with regard to my personal affairs, but I know she does whatever she does because she cares about me, in the same way that she cares deeply about you.

Daniel: Yeah, you know, that all sounds good, but at the end of the day, I need a bed and some food in the fridge and a quiet place to do my homework where I'm not gonna get my head chewed off every five minutes.

Damon: I know.

Daniel: I mean, I even thought that maybe I oughta come and ask you if I could stay here. Does that give you a little bit of a clue as to how desperate I am?

Damon: Good and desperate, ain't it?

Daniel: You think-- think maybe I could crash here?

Damon: You know that wouldn't work, slick, probably for the same reason phyllis' place isn't a good idea right now.

Daniel: Fine. You know, I'll just-- I'll just go to school, and when I'm done with class, I'll go and camp out with my books. Hope someone comes and gets me out of my locker in the morning, though. Thanks. Thanks a lot.

Damon: Daniel... (door closes)

Phyllis: Just one sec, please. Um, you know what, drucilla? This is very important. I have to take this.

Dru: Hmm? Hmm?

Phyllis: I have to take this phone call. Could you excuse me, please? Please. Okay. Mr. Hughes, where are you?

Dominic: I just checked into a motel.

Phyllis: Where?

Dominic: Genoa city.

Phyllis: I can't believe that you did this. I can't believe this. Didn't I get through to you at all?

Dominic: Looks like I'm the one who didn't get through to you, lady, because I meant it when I said I was coming to see your boyfriend. It is gonna happen. My life can't start again until it does.

Phyllis: Let me tell you something. If you insist on pushing this, your life won't start again at all.

Lauren: I'm just kidding. All lawyers aren't bad, regardless of your reputation, mr. Baldwin.

Michael: You're something else, you know that?

Lauren: Why? What did I do?

Michael: It's been a long time since I've had a beautiful woman rush to my defense.

Lauren: Well, believe it or not, you're one of the good guys.

Michael: It's nice to have you in my corner.

Lauren: I feel the same way. You know, I thought a lot about you on the plane ride home.

Michael: Oh.

Lauren: Yeah, and it's making me wonder, why are we standing around, wasting all this peace and quiet?

Michael: Hmm. I was thinking the same thing.

Gloria: Kevin, I want you to leave right now. You are making me nervous.

Kevin: I can see what's happening, mom. Why fight it?

Gloria: Kevin, I am a long way from being mrs. John abbott, if that's what you're saying.

Kevin: Bet you it's gonna happen pretty soon, though.

Gloria: Honey, I know you want that for me, and so do I, but right now I can't afford to take any chances. If john finds out you're my son, he'll know that I lied to him.

Kevin: What? What do you mean?

Gloria: Well, he's already met my other two sons.

Kevin: Huh?

Gloria: Well, now it's a long story. See, I hired these two guys-- these two gorgeous young guys to pretend that they were my boys.

Kevin: Are you kidding me?

Gloria: So now you understand why I have to be so careful.

Kevin: Yeah, but abbott's gonna find out eventually.

Gloria: I know, but I'll decide when the time is right, not you. Now right now I want you outta here. If you need money--

Kevin: I still don't have any mo--

Gloria: All right, I'll give you some. I'll lend you some money until you're back on your feet.

John: Gloria, who are you talking to? You know, I found these brochures of... kevin, what on earth are you doing here?

Ashley: I'd be lying if I told you I didn't feel this distance. I mean, it's obvious. But, um, for us to take a trip? It's just not in the cards, honey.

Brad: It's not in the cards? Ash... baby, we need to make our marriage our priority. We need to nurture it.

Ashley: Well, we're gonna have to do that from here.

Brad: That's just not going to work. There are too many distractions in genoa city. We need to make this about just the two of us. Ash... you said you believe in this marriage. Now god knows I do, too. We have to do something drastic to get back on track.

Ashley: Or else...

Brad: Or else the gap is going to keep getting wider and wider. I don't want to see that happen. I don't want us to grow apart like that.

Ashley: What if it's too late?

Brad: It's not too late.

Ashley: Honey, I'm so sorry. I'm just not sure I feel the same way anymore.

Next on

"the young and the restless"...

Mac: If you and brittany are just friends, then what does that make you and me?

Dominic: You haven't lived the hell that's been my life. I gotta set things right.

Brad: You don't feel the same way about what, ash? Me?
