(Knock on door)

Neil: Victor, you wanted to see me?

Victor: Yes, please.

Neil: Did you see the report from Rogers in Hong Kong? I knew those figures were too good to be true.

Victor: You have always had good feelings about that.

Neil: Yeah, I still think we should consider the property. There's the update right there.

Victor: I will take a closer look later on. Meanwhile, we have something else to discuss. Please have a seat, Neil.

Neil: Sure.

Victor: Neil, you have always done an excellent job as C.E.O. of this company.

Neil: Thank you, sir.

Victor: As acting C.E.O., that means as temporary C.E.O. The time has come to make some changes around here.

Neil: Well, things change. That's part of life.

(Knock on door)

Nick: Am I interrupting?

Victor: No. Have a seat, son. Now that you're both here, I'll get straight to the point. From now on, son, you will be running this company. You will be the new C.E.O. of Newman Enterprises.


(Door opens and closes)

Sharon: Oh, Nikki, wait till you hear my news.

Nikki: Sharon, next time you come bursting into a room, do you think you could knock?

Sharon: Oh, yeah, sure. Um, hey, what's all that stuff?

Nikki: The homeless shelter is doing their annual clothing drive. What they really need are children's clothes.

Sharon: Well, Noah grew out of two sizes this summer. I'll donate those.

Nikki: Oh, thanks. All right, so what's your news?

Sharon: You haven't spoken to Brad Carlton yet, have you?

Nikki: Brad? What would he have to do with your news?

Sharon: I am going to be the new spokeswoman for Jabot Cosmetics.

Nikki: What? They're firing people right and left. When did this happen?

Sharon: Today. I interviewed with brad and he hired me.

Nikki: Well, that's ridiculous. That's a major position. I didn't even know we were looking for a spokesperson.

Sharon: Well, I don't see what the problem is.

Nikki: No, of course you donít.


Hank: Excuse me. Nurse? Where's Mr. Porter?

Nurse: They're running some tests. He should be back soon.

Hank: Oh, okay. Thank you.

Nurse: Sure.

Hank: Can I use your phone?

Nurse: Sure. Help yourself.

Hank: Thanks.

(Cell phone rings)

Phyllis: Hello.

Hank: Ms. Abbot, Hank Weber, Genoa City P.D.

Phyllis: Detective Weber, what can I do for you?

Hank: You can tell me why you haven't returned my call.

Phyllis: I'm sorry. Drucilla told me that you called, and I've been so busy it just slipped my mind.

Hank: Well, I have some questions I need to ask you.

Phyllis: Okay, ask.

Hank: No, ma'am, not over the phone. Meet me at the station in an hour and a half.

Phyllis: You know, Detective Weber, it's really not a good time. I'm absolutely--

Hank: That's, uh, that's not a request, Ms. Abbott. I expect to see you there. This investigation is far from over, ma'am.


Kevin: Hey, can I get a bottle of water, please? Thank you. Just put it on my brother's account--Michael Baldwin.

Kevin: Hi, Llily.

Lily: Hi.

Kevin: I didn't expect to see you here.

Lily: I'm meeting my dad for dinner. Have you seen him, by any chance?

Kevin: No.

Lily: Oh. Must be running late. You know, work and stuff. Well, I was gonna grab a table, so, and hang out.


(Doorbell rings)

Dru: Coming. Malcolm. Well, come in. No one's here, man. I swear.

Malcolm: I don't even know why I came.

Dru: Well, because Genoa City's your home, right?

Malcolm: If that's what you wanna believe, Dru, but I don't have a home, not anymore.

Dru: Sure, you do. And you were happy here once.

Malcolm: That was a long time ago. Feels like somebody else's life.

Malcolm: You know, I will admit, though, I often wondered if this was a place I could ever feel comfortable again.

Dru: Sure, it is, and I think I know how I can make that happen.

Malcolm: Drucilla--

Dru: No, just meet Neil halfway. Drop the resentment. Just talk to him.

Malcolm: Drucilla, stop. Don't talk to me about my brother.


Kevin: Um, I gotta know. Did you say anything to your parents about what I told you?

Lily: You're really sweating it, aren't you?

Kevin: Lily, I had no idea that Alex was planning on slipping a drug in your drink. You gotta believe me.

Lily: I know. I do. I believe you.

Kevin: Really?

Lily: Yes, as hard as it is to believe, I do, which is why I didn't tell my parents.

Kevin: Thank you. Oh, thank you. Oh, what a relief. You have no idea how much this means to me.

Lily: Just don't make me regret it.


Nick: You wanna say that again?

Victor: You heard me, son. I'm appointing you as chief executive officer of Newman Enterprises. If you're available, that is.

Nick: I'm available. I just didn't expect this.

Neil: Well... congratulations. We all knew this day would come.

Nick: I guess so. Thank you.

Victor: Neil, I would like you to remain in this company as executive vice president and chief operating officer. Nicholas needs to be brought up to date on the most recent developments in our company, and as chief operating officer, I expect you to be in charge of day-to-day operations of this company.

Neil: But Nick will be in charge.

Victor: He will be the final authority.

Neil: What about the projects in development? What will happen to them?

Victor: The projects that you are in charge of, I would like you to bring them to fruition, if that is all right with you, son?

Nick: Of course. If you have anything promising in the pipeline, you've got my full support.

Victor: Neil, I just want you to know that you've done an excellent job as temporary C.E.O. You know that I put you into this position. In fact, I asked you to do me a favor to take over while I was dealing with some personal issues. I've dealt with them now, and I wanna thank you. You've done an excellent job.

Neil: Thank you, sir. I appreciate the opportunity.

Nick: You're gonna have to give me some pointers on how to handle the old man.

Neil: Meet in my office in five minutes.

Victor: What you have not said, however, is if you are willing to stay on as chief operating officer and as my son's right hand.

Neil: Of course, Victor. I'll stay.

Victor: That makes me very happy.

Neil: Well, um, again, congratulations. I'm sure you'll do a great job.

Nick: Thanks, man. I'm looking forward to us working together again. How soon can you start inundating me with paper?

Neil: Uh, immediately. How about first thing in the morning?

Nick: Works for me.

Neil: Okay.

Victor: Neil, thank you for everything.

Neil: Gentlemen.

Victor: I want you to know this is one of the hardest things to do as C.E.O. of a company is to tell someone that, in fact, they've been demoted. This is one of the nicest guys I have ever had work for me. But now I can't begin to tell you how happy I am that I made this decision.


Sharon: Boy that is not the reaction I expected. Not at all.

Nikki: You obviously haven't thought this through.

Sharon: Apparently you think it's a bad idea.

Nikki: Spokesperson for a major cosmetics company? You're in way over your head, my dear.

Sharon: Why do you say that?

Nikki: Well, first of all, you have zero corporate experience.

Sharon: True, but neither did you when you started working at Jabot.

Nikki: We're not talking about me. We're talking about you.

Sharon: Are you sure this isn't some kind of territorial thing?

Nikki: What? What do you mean?

Sharon: Well, you're the only Newman who works over there at Jabot, and maybe you're afraid I'll steal some of your thunder.

Nikki: Oh, my God, you are so far off base.

Sharon: Nikki, look, this job is really important to me. Please say that you won't try to undermine me in some deliberate way. We are family, after all. And you know, you did say that I'm an official Newman after that whole Cameron nightmare ended.

Nikki: Yeah, that was family. This is business.


(Doorbell rings)

Michael: Coming! (Doorbell rings)

Michael: Coming!

Phyllis: I need your legal expertise.

Michael: You know what? You caught me at a bad time, Phyllis. I'm on my way out.

Phyllis: It'll only take ten minutes, ten minutes.

Michael: I don't have ten minutes. I've got an appointment, all right?

Phyllis: With who, a woman?

Michael: If you must know, it's with my brother.

Phyllis: Oh, big deal. Kevin? This is more important.

Michael: Okay, okay. Make it quick.

Phyllis: I got a call from the police.

Michael: What did you do? You ran a red light, what?

Phyllis: I was almost killed. Now do I have your attention?


Lily: Thank you.

Kevin: You won't regret this, Lily. I promise. Everything that I said before about being a better person, I'm really serious about it.

Lily: I hope you mean that.

Kevin: I do, I do. I swear, I'm gonna turn my entire life around. Pretty soon I'll get a job, get my own place again. It's all gonna work out. I know it is. It's all because people like you believed in me.

Lily: How was your workout?

Kevin: My what?

Lily: Well, you came from the gym, right?

Kevin: Oh, yeah. Uh, it was fine. You know, took it easy. Gotta save my strength.

Lily: Save your strength? For what?

Kevin: Yeah, for tonight. I challenged my brother to a fight.

Lily: A fight?

Kevin: Yeah.

Lily: Like hitting each other?

Kevin: Yeah, yeah, hitting each other. Pretty cool, huh?

Lily: No, that is not cool at all.


Michael: Wow. Oh, I'm so sorry, Phyllis. I had no idea you were going through all this. I mean, I haven't had time to even pick up a newspaper.

Phyllis: Hey, I'm all right. I'm fine. I'm all right. I'm just glad Damon got through this.

Michael: Me too.

Phyllis: Right.

Michael: So you said something about the police.

Phyllis: Yeah, I got a call from our good friend Detective Weber.

Michael: Oh, Hank. He never takes a vacation.

Phyllis: Yeah, and, um, he wants to see me. I believe his exact words were, "this investigation is far from over." The way he said it, Michael, it just...

Michael: What?

Phyllis: It just really-- it freaked me out. Anyway, that's why I'm here. So you tell me, should I be worried?


Nick: All right, what's the catch?

Victor: I promise you, there isn't a catch, son.

Nick: I find that hard to believe.

Victor: I thought you'd be happy.

Nick: I am happy, more happy than you know, but something tells me this is too good to be true.

Victor: It is true, son. You know, son, I'm sadly aware that our family has been splintered for awhile. Your sister's been long gone. Breaks my heart every day. And your and my relationship has been battered and bruised. Well, I've come to the point in my life where I want to put an end to that. I want to heal our wounds.

Nick: I've heard you say this before.

Victor: I know, but I've never been willing to take the step that I'm taking now. I know that you've often accused me of sort of ignoring you, neglecting you when you were a kid, and I probably did, but I did so because I was working my behind off trying to build this company. And I'm sorry that you felt neglected. So it's this company that really came between what could have and should have been a wonderful father-son relationship. So I'm gonna rectify that, hopefully not too late. That's why I'm handing you this company. It is yours to run.


Dru: What if Neil walks through the door right now?

Malcolm: I don't know, Dru.

Dru: You need to talk to him, Malcolm.

Malcolm: Why?

Dru: Because he's your brother.

Malcolm: And I told you. I don't wanna see him.

Dru: Yet you come to your brother's house knowing full well he can come through that door. You know, maybe you're not being honest with yourself. Did you ever think of that?


Phyllis: Why aren't you saying anything?

Michael: I'm thinkin'.

Phyllis: Think out loud. I need your help.

Michael: All right. For starters, you should go to see Detective Weber.

Phyllis: Okay, what do I say to him?

Michael: Just answer his questions. Tell him about the motel room.

Phyllis: I already gave a statement to the officer at the hospital.

Michael: Hank is probably just following up, tying up loose ends. That's his job.

Phyllis: You think so?

Michael: I don't see what you're so worried about. You and Damon didn't do anything wrong. It was self-defense.

Phyllis: Exactly. Right. But I-I'm just, I'm a little nervous. I've had run-ins with Detective Weber, as you can recall.

Michael: Mm-hmm.

Phyllis: And he's a little suspicious.

Michael: Well, that's what makes him a good cop.

Phyllis: Right. Will you come with me?

Michael: No.

Phyllis: Please.

Michael: No, no.

Phyllis: I really need your support, Michael.

Michael: No, I told you I have this appointment with my brother.

Phyllis: Well, I'll cancel this appointment and make one for tomorrow with Detective Weber. How about that?

Michael: No, I'm busy tomorrow. I have a court appearance in the morning. I have appointments all afternoon. I have a huge backlog of cases.

Phyllis: Okay, all right, obviously you don't really care about helping me.

Michael: Look, if you still feel you need legal advice, just talk to my partner.

Phyllis: Who? What? Christine? Oh, yeah, that's gonna happen.

Michael: Look, that's the best I can do. Now I gotta go.

Phyllis: I have to go, too. I'm going to go by the hospital before I see Detective Weber.

Michael: All right, all right, give my regards to Damon.

Phyllis: I will.

Michael: Are you okay?

Phyllis: I-it's just... yeah, yeah, I'm fine.

Michael: Tell me what happens with Weber, okay?

Phyllis: Yeah, I will. Good luck with whatever you're doing.


Sharon: Look, Nikki, I'm not trying to invade your turf or anything. I realize that you've carved out a spot for yourself over there at Jabot, and I respect that.

Nikki: Do you?

Sharon: Absolutely. I was hoping that you would help me learn the business.

Nikki: Well, my hands are full. If you're looking for a mentor, go somewhere else.

Sharon: Look, I don't want to embarrass you or embarrass the family. Most of all, I just--I really want Nick to be proud of me.

Nikki: What does he think about this?

Sharon: Oh, he's behind me 100%. He even helped me get hired.

Nikki: Really?

Sharon: So what do you say? Will you help me learn the ropes? Because either way, I am determined not to fail at this.

Nikki: Well, I admit I'm not thrilled about it, but I won't fight you. I guess I'll try to help you out.

Sharon: Oh, Nikki, thank you. You will not regret this, I promise you. (Door closes)

Nikki: Great. Great.


Nick: Dad, you keep saying that Newman Enterprises is mine. What does that mean? Is it for real? Or is it like last time, when it was mine as long as I followed your orders?

Victor: I understand why you would be wary, son.

Nick: Well, can you blame me? You've used this company to control so many people's lives, to control my life.

Victor: This is not about controlling anyone.

Victor: This is about wanting to make our family whole again.

Nick: Then you're not going to interfere?

Victor: No.

Nick: Honestly?

Victor: Honestly. This is your company to run as you see fit.

Nick: You have no idea how long I have waited to hear those words.

Victor: This company's your birthright, son.

Nick: I know. But I never expected you to just hand it to me after what happened last year with the commercial bribery.

Victor: Let's not talk about that, okay?

Nick: Does this mean you've forgiven me for turning you into the feds?

Victor: I've forgiven you, but I haven't forgotten. It's still very painful.

Victor: But now it's time to move on and heal wounds.

Nick: Well, maybe now we can.

Victor: Nothing would make me happier.

Nick: I guess it's better late than never, huh?

Victor: You bet. Son, you're more important to me than this company, the power or the money. You're my son.

Nick: I can't tell you how this makes me feel, to know that you have the confidence in me to run this company with no strings attached.

Victor: I wouldn't have made this decision, son, if I didn't know in my heart of hearts that you would succeed.

Victor: But, please, don't make the same damn mistakes as I made. Don't lose yourself in your work, don't spend all of your time running this company. Spend a lot of time with your kids, with your wife. Your family needs you.

Nick: I know. I'm not gonna let my family down... or this company. I'm gonna take Newman Enterprises to new heights, Dad. And I promise you, I'm gonna make you proud of me.

Victor: I'm already more proud of you than you realize.

Nick: Thanks.


Malcolm: All right, fine, Dru, if we really must talk about Neil, let me ask you something.

Dru: What?

Malcolm: Why has he been so shady to this kid Devon?

Dru: Dev-- how do you know about Devon?

Malcolm: I met him. On the south side at that Rec center.

Dru: And he spoke to you about Neil?

Malcolm: Says that Neilís the reason he doesn't have a place to live.

Dru: Okay, wait a minute. Um, you know, you have no right to chastise Neil. You weren't there. This was a family decision.

Malcolm: That's not the way I heard it.

Dru: How'd you hear it?

Malcolm: Well, for starters, he says that things aren't exactly peaches and cream between you and Neil. Sure, you may put on a happy face for the rest of the world, but behind closed doors, it's a different story. That sound about right?

Dru: All right, and you're going to take the word of a 16-year-old boy as gospel?

Malcolm: The boy has no reason to lie to me.

Dru: Maybe not, but his perceptions are skewed.

Malcolm: Skewed?

Dru: Yeah.

Malcolm: Why, because he resents being thrown on the street?

Dru: No, because when he sees two people arguing, he assumes it needs to go to the street or-- or they have a disagreement. He doesn't realize that you make up and you still love each other all the same. What are you doing?

Malcolm: Is that Llily?

Dru: Yeah. Why?

Malcolm: Damn. Time flies. She's beautiful, Dru.

Dru: Yeah.

Malcolm: Just like her mother.


Lily: Wait, so you and your brother are gonna fight over a woman?

Kevin: No, no, it's-- it's not about the woman. It's about standing up for myself, you know? Not letting my brother treat me like dirt.

Kevin: What?

Lily: How can you say that you've changed into this upstanding person when you're obviously still filled with anger and violence?

Kevin: No, I don't think you get it. This is gonna be a really good thing for me.

Lily: How is beating up your brother a good thing?

Kevin: Because, okay, because, um, it used to be that if I got mad at somebody, I would do something, you know, mean to get even. Now I'm gonna look my brother right in the eye and say, "hey, you did something I don't like," and I'm gonna do something about it.

Lily: Well, I guess it's better than you doing something stupid.

Kevin: Right, like setting my brother's car on fire. (Chuckles) hmm, I gotta go.

Lily: Well, good luck, I guess.

Kevin: I'm not gonna need it, but thanks.


Damon: What you gonna do, darlin', stand there all evening?

Phyllis: I wasn't sure if you were asleep or not. How you feeling?

Damon: Like a new man.

Phyllis: Yeah? Oh, Damon, I'm thankful you're okay. I just keep thinking about the sound of that gun going off and you lying on the floor of that motel room. All the blood. I was so scared.

Damon: It's over. And now we know it'll take more than a bullet when the time comes.

Phyllis: That's 'cause you're strong.

Damon: Well, no, the way you handled yourself with Dominic, I'm learnin' you're not such a cream puff yourself there, babe. Very few coulda done what you did.

Phyllis: Yeah, if you hadn't pushed me out of the way, Dominic would have shot me.

Damon: Maybe.

Phyllis: Not maybe.

Phyllis: You saved my life... again. How can I thank you?

Damon: Phyllis, you don't owe me any thanks. Hey, I've been thinkin'.

Phyllis: About what?

Damon: My future. You see, I woke up, and all of a sudden, I wasn't completely overwhelmed with hatred. I believe I could see things a little more clearly.

Phyllis: Good. And what do you see?

Damon: You and me. And your son. You and I understand why I've had such issues with Daniel. It was never about him. It was about the son that I lost. Now... I think I could finally look at Daniel and see Daniel.

Damon: And I'd like to get to know him. I'd like to be a part of his life.

Phyllis: I'm sure he'd like that.

Damon: I don't-- I don't mean to say that I feel like I need to take the place of his father. I understand that their relationship is sacred, but I also know that Danielís off doing his thing. I think Daniel could use a strong male presence in his life, don't you?

Phyllis: Yeah. Sure. Um, Damon, um... listen... there's something--

Damon: What? What's the matter?

Phyllis: Um, I just... I'm a little confused right now. I just, I need, um... I need--I need some time to-- to sort things out.

Damon: I can give you that. Is there anything you'd like to talk to me about?

Hank: Excuse me. Am I interrupting?

Damon: Detective. It's fine. How are you?

Hank: Ms. Abbott?


(Door closes)

Nikki: Oh, there you are.

Victor: Yes, sweetheart.

Nikki: What's the matter?

Victor: Why do you ask?

Nikki: I can tell by the look on your face something's on your mind.

Victor: Hmm. By the way, is Devon here?

Nikki: Yeah, he's in the guest room. Why?

Victor: I got a call from that social worker, Ms. Davis. He's going to have to go back to a group home, unfortunately. This will the last night he's going to be at the ranch.

Nikki: Oh, that's too bad. He's a nice young man. I'm in no rush to see him leave.

Victor: He's a very nice kid. I agree with you. I feel very bad about that. Why the hell they send him back to a group home, I don't know. Anyway...

Nikki: Um, I have some news.

Victor: Does it have to do with business?

Nikki: Yeah.

Victor: Then would you mind not talking about that?

Nikki: Victor, you need to know about this.

Victor: There's only one thing I want to talk about tonight-- it's about how much I love you.


Michael: You're late.

Kevin: I lost track of time.

Michael: I was hoping you wouldn't show up.

Kevin: Not a chance. Is anybody else here?

Michael: Uh, other than the security guard upstairs, we have the place to ourselves.

Kevin: Good. What are you standing around for?

Michael: Look, Kevin, uh, you made your point, all right? You think I did something wrong, you're upset. I get it. Why don't we just call it a draw and walk away?

Kevin: (Chuckles) you'd like that, wouldn't you?

Michael: Yeah, I'd like that. I don't want to fight you.

Kevin: Well, too bad. We're gonna settle this once and for all, man-to-man.

Michael: Hmm. What if I refuse?

Kevin: Put the gloves on, Michael. Put on the damn gloves! Get your hide in the ring and let's get this started!


Damon: Is there something I can do for you, Detective?

Phyllis: No, he's here to see me. I thought you said you wanted to meet at the station. What, are you having me followed?

Hank: I believe I told you an hour and a half. I've been waiting to talk to Mr. Porter.

Damon: About what?

Hank: I have some questions about the night of the incident.

Damon: I'll do my best to answer them.

Phyllis: Does Damonís doctor know you're in here?

Damon: Phyllis. It's all right. I can answer a few questions.

Hank: Would you please give us some privacy, Ms. Abbott?

Phyllis: No, I'm not leaving. I'm staying here. I want to make sure that Damonís okay.

Hank: Fine. I'll talk to both of you. Let's get started, shall we?


Nikki: Well, I love you, too. You always know exactly what to say to put a smile on my face.

Victor: Who would have thought that you and i would be together as long as we have?

Nikki: Are you sure there's not anything else on your mind besides Devon and the fact that you love me so much?

Victor: Just that I haven't told you often enough how much you're part of my life, how much you mean to me.

Nikki: Why do I get the feeling that you're building to something?

Nikki: Just tell me. Tell me the truth. I know something's going on with you. What is it?

Victor: (Sighs) I guess there's no way to avoid it any longer, but something has been weighing very heavily on me, something I need to deal with.

Nikki: What?

Victor: All I'm going to tell you now is that I'm going to leave for awhile.


Dru: You know, I don't know why you would judge our marriage based on the opinion of a boy.

Malcolm: Drucilla, there are things I know about you that are never gonna change. I know it's gotta disappoint the hell out of you to watch your man shut his heart down to a youngster like that.

Dru: You don't know what you're talking about.

Malcolm: I know that you and Neil have always been very different. That man cares about his career and himself. But you, you've always taken the time to think about other people. Dru, you got more generosity in your little finger than he's ever had in his entire body. You know what, I bet you, after all of these years, he still can't appreciate what he's got when it comes to you. And that's a woman who's so full of life, so beautiful.


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

Neil: I have been all over town looking for Lily.

Malcolm: Sometimes things happen in a person's life want to talk about.

Michael: You know, I really think that we should have some sort of cutoff point.

Kevin: Let's just do this.

Nick: Why are you leaving?

Victor: There's something I have to do.
