Victor: Son, you automatically assume that my homecoming means the end of your tenure as C.E.O.

Nick: Doesn't it?

Victor: I handed the company to you. You have made certain decisions. That's all right with me. That's as it should be.

Nick: Then you're not here to second-guess me?

Victor: I came here because I want to make sure you didn't hear from someone else that I was back in town. I didn't want you to start worrying. There's no reason to.

Nick: Well, all right. It means a lot to hear you say that. So how was your trip? I get the feeling you went away to do some soul-searching.

Victor: You know, son, you and I have had our difficulties, but sometimes, as a father, I just have a longing to talk to my son, you know? There's nothing wrong with that. But talking about the trip, um, yeah, I've done a lot of soul-searching. I haven't stopped yet.

Nick: Did you come to any conclusions?

Victor: (Chuckles)


Brittany: What a terrific picture of Nick and Sharon. When were they married?

Nikki: Oh, um, gosh, about nine years ago, I guess.

Brittany: They look like they're so in love. Bobby and I still have to go through our wedding pictures. Angela took so many, I don't know how we'll decide which ones we want. Oh, and look at Noah. How cute is he?

Bobby: Okay, honey.

Brittany: What? Am I talking too much?

Bobby: No, no, no, but I think Nikki might want to get back to her other guest.

Kay: Oh, don't worry about me. I really should be running along.

Bobby: No, no, no, you two ladies go ahead and talk. Brittany and I are just gonna take our bags to our room. Um, where is it?

Nikki: I think maybe you need a tour first.

Brittany: That would be great. I can't wait to see the rest of your home.

Nikki: Well, for now it's your home, too.

Brittany: That is so sweet of you, but I do have one question. Is Mr. Newman gonna be okay with this?

Nikki: That's not a problem. Don't give it another thought. Let's get started with that tour.

Brittany: Great. Bobby, are you coming?

Bobby: You know what? I'm gonna stay down here and catch up with Mrs. Chancellor. You go ahead.

Brittany: All right, guess it's just you and me then.

Nikki: All right, guest suites right up here.


Ashley: So I guess you really enjoyed that scone.

Paul: Well, I guess I forgot to eat today.

Ashley: Oh, you must have been busy.

Paul: I was trying to help a friend with something, and I got all wrapped up in it and lost track.

Ashley: Did you help them, anyway?

Paul: Oh, I'm not sure.

Ashley: Well, at least you tried.

Paul: I did try. It's a weird situation. I was asked for advice, and I wasn't sure what the right answer is.

Ashley: Well, you know what I say? Don't do anything, not till you're sure.

Paul: That's what I said.

Ashley: Really? See, great minds.

Paul: Yeah.

Ashley: So did your friend listen?

Paul: I'm not sure, probably not. She was, uh, well, pretty overwhelmed.

Ashley: She? Aha, it was a woman.

Paul: You know, you could be a private investigator. I gave myself away.

Ashley: No, I would have guessed anyway.

Paul: You know, sometimes things happen in life when really no one is to blame, but you just can't help blaming yourself.

Ashley: That does sound like quite a story.

Paul: Well, it happened a long, long time ago, and there's no way to dig up any of the major players and talk to them and get a fix on what really happened.

Ashley: If it was so long ago, why does it even matter?


(Knock on door)

Dru: Just a second!

Dru: Hey.

Malcolm: Hey, Drucilla.

Dru: Hi.

Malcolm: You gonna invite me in?

Malcolm: Where is everyone?

Dru: Neil took the kids to pick up some supper.

Malcolm: Dru, last time I checked, you could throw down in the kitchen. Not tonight?

Dru: I can still throw down in the kitchen, Malcolm. I'm just not in the mood. Listen, um, Neil tells me you took a job at the coffeehouse.

Malcolm: Yeah, so what?

Dru: So I think you just took it so you could be closer to Lily.

Malcolm: Is there something wrong with a guy wanting to be closer to his niece? I did miss the last few years of her life.

Dru: That was your choice, yeah. You let us all believe you were dead, remember?

Malcolm: You know, that right there is why I like hanging out with Lily. She doesn't give me a hard time every time I see her, unlike some folks I know.


Hank: So, Ms. Abbott, in lieu of the new evidence, do you have anything to say?

Phyllis: I'm sorry. How could there be new evidence? That's impossible. See, there wasn't a crime that was committed.

Chris: Uh, I'll take it from here.

Phyllis: Okay, go ahead.

Chris: Why are you bringing this to us, detective?

Hank: Because if your client will admit she's guilty, we can all be spared the time and the expense of a trial.

Phyllis: For the 100th time, I am not guilty!

Chris: Be quiet. Could you sit down? I'll handle it. Hank, if there's new evidence, let's stop wasting time and hear it.

Hank: We obtained copies of Ms. Abbott's phone records.

Phyllis: Can they do that?

Chris: Shh!

Hank: We can, and we did. And what those records show is that you made a call to Damon Porter's home only a few minutes prior to your call to 911 the night of the incident, which in either scenario-- yours or Hughes'-- places you at the motel or somewhere close to it when the first call was made.

Chris: Which is supposed to show what exactly?

Hank: Ms. Abbott calls Porter and tells him where Dominic Hughes is. Porter grabs his sword, rushes over to the motel with the intention of killing the man, only the plan falls apart when Hughes pulls out a gun.

Phyllis: Oh, are you kidding me? The reason I called Damon was to tell him that Hughes had been lying to us!

Chris: Would you please sit down and shut up?!

Hank: You admit making the call?

Phyllis: Of course! Of course I made the call!

Chris: (Sighs)

Hank: And telling Porter something he didn't know-- Hughes' whereabouts. And then he comes running over with a deadly weapon, right?

Chris: This interview is over.

Phyllis: I had no idea that Damon was gonna come over with a sword, all right? That was a total surprise.

Hank: Okay, ladies. I think that's all the information I need for now. Thank you, counselor. Ms. Abbott, as always.


Bobby: So how is your daughter Jill? I haven't seen her in awhile.

Kay: She is fine, just fine. How are things at the club?

Bobby: Eh, not so good, but we're making some changes, and things should turn around real soon.

Kay: That's confidence. I like that.

Bobby: You gotta have it if you're gonna succeed.

Kay: So you and your new bride will be staying here?

Bobby: Yeah, it was really nice of Nikki to invite us to stay. I just wish I could pay her back in some way.

Kay: Oh, I don't think that's necessary. >From my understanding, she feels a bit of responsibility to you.

Bobby: Oh, that's crazy. If anything, I owe her, especially after all the help she's given me down at the club. She's a real good friend.

Kay: Oh, indeed she is.

Bobby: What is that look for? Mrs. Chancellor, you do not think that Brittany and I are taking advantage of Nikki?

Kay: Well, let's put it like this. You'd better not be.

Bobby: (Chuckles) yeah, I wish I had a dozen friends like you on my side. Trust me, we're not gonna stay here any longer than we have to. As soon I get enough cash to finish my condo, that's it. We're out of here. Unless, of course, Victor comes back first.

Kay: You and Victor don't get along.

Bobby: Eh. I don't exactly think he'll be pleased with me staying here.

Kay: Well, I mean, it is his home.

Bobby: Yeah. Trust me, I can feel him all over this place.

Kay: In fact, you remind me a great deal of victor yourself.

Bobby: (Chuckles) I don't really know how to take that one.

Kay: Well, it's a compliment. I mean, you're self-made men, and you're driven to succeed.

Bobby: Yeah, but there's one big difference. I don't get off on bossing people around. I do it when I have to, but not because I think it makes me look good.

Kay: Well, for all of his achievements, Victor is a real human being just like the rest of us. And I know personally that there are many times that he feels very much alone.

Bobby: Well, that's not surprising seeing the way he treats people. Does he even have any friends?

Kay: He has some.

Bobby: Yeah, well, I bet they're all women. A guy like that, he doesn't like to have competition. He's gotta be the big dog, keep all the other little dogs below.

Kay: Well, yes, but I think perhaps you should get to know victor much better before you rush to those kind of judgments. Just because he doesn't have any close male friends doesn't mean that he doesn't want them.

Bobby: Fair enough. You know, Mrs. Chancellor, you should have your own little advice column. You have a lot of knowledge in that head of yours.

Kay: Oh, trust me, my friend, if you knew more about me and my life, you wouldn't think I was so wise.

Bobby: (Chuckles)

Kay: Well, I really must be running, and I thank you very much for the compliment, but would you, by the way, just give Nikki my good-byes, all right?

Bobby: Yeah. Uh, Mrs. Chancellor, like I said before, you have nothing to worry about.

Kay: Very nice talking to you. Bye-bye.


Dru: Malcolm, I really don't mean to be hard on you.

Malcolm: Yeah, well, you got me fooled, Dru.

Dru: I just don't want you pulling any stuff tonight.

Malcolm: Stuff like what?

Dru: You know, forcing a relationship with Lily.

Malcolm: Drucilla, what are you really afraid of?

Dru: Are you serious? You were not here. You did not see what happened while you were gone, how your brother nearly drank himself to death and had to fight back, and now our family is intact. Lily has everything she could possibly want, and good things must be protected or else they fall apart. And I will not let anything destroy this family, nothing, not after everything we've been through.

Malcolm: I did not come back here to hurt anybody.

Dru: Are you sure about that?

Malcolm: Why would I lie to you?

Dru: I do not know, except that you are not the same person that left Genoa City for a business trip to Kenya. Whatever you experienced there, Malcolm, I know it changed you dramatically, and I believe it changed the way you feel about things.

Malcolm: So having me back in town is making things more difficult for you?

Malcolm: Well, that's too bad, Dru.

Dru: Where are you going?

Malcolm: I don't want you to feel any more uncomfortable than you already do.

Lily: Hey, you're here! Hi!

Malcolm: Hey.

Devon: Hey.

Lily: Hey, Mom.

Neil: Hey. Malcolm, thank you so much for coming to dinner. Hope you're hungry. We've got a lot to eat. Hey, baby.

Dru: Hi, hon.


Nikki: And lo and behold, here we are, where we started, in the living room.

Brittany: Well, thank you for the tour. Where'd everybody go?

Nikki: I don't know. Can I get you something to drink?

Brittany: No, thanks. I'm fine. How long until your husband comes back?

Nikki: I'm not really sure. Um, probably way after you and Bobby move out. Why are you so curious about Victor?

Brittany: Uh, it's just I wouldn't want him to get upset that Bobby and I are staying here.

Nikki: Brittany, don't worry about it. Everything will be fine.

Brittany: I hope you know how much this means to Bobby and me. We were going to stay at my old apartment.

Nikki: Yeah, I heard. I know Bobby wasn't thrilled with that idea.

Brittany: I guess I can understand why he wouldn't want to live with a bunch of college students. Bobby's been on his own since he was a kid. You probably don't know this, but he had a pretty rotten childhood. He doesn't talk about it much, but I can tell.

Nikki: What do you mean?

Brittany: Well, I've never met his parents. I don't know where they are or even if they're still alive. And when I ask Bobby what it was like for him growing up, he gets this sad look in his eyes, and he changes the subject. I don't think he had a lot of people who loved him. I know he tries to hide it, but I can tell it still affects him. That would affect anyone, right? Feeling like you weren't important, nobody has time for you.

Nikki: Yes, of course. That would be terrible.

Brittany: Bobby's always taken care of himself. Now he's trying to take care of me, and I know it kills him for us not to have a home to live in. That's why even though I know he's so grateful to you... Nikki, what's wrong?

Nikki: Nothing. I'm sorry. Go ahead.

Brittany: Even though Bobby's grateful, he may not always show it. I mean, he will, but it'll be in his own way. This is a hard time for him. What I'm trying to say is thanks again, especially for being so kind to my husband. I don't think a lot of people have been in his life. I love him so much.

Nikki: I can see that.

Brittany: And thanks for me, too, for coming to our rescue. I really hope this arrangement works out. I would hate for anything to go wrong.

Nikki: What do you mean, like my husband coming home?

Brittany: Bobby doesn't need any more headaches.

Nikki: Brittany, I understand, and you don't have to worry. Everything will be fine. I just talked to Victor recently, and I got the distinct impression that he won't be home for quite some time.


Nick: Yeah, I'll make sure someone's here when the call comes in from Munich. Okay. Connie, could you please hold my calls? Thank you. Sorry.

Victor: It's all right.

Nick: So before the phone rang, you were about to answer my question.

Victor: Your question was did I accomplish my goal? The answer is no. I haven't, and I'm still looking for solutions to some problems.

Nick: But you think you can do that here.

Victor: Well, to be honest with you, I decided to come back because I... I missed your mother.

Nick: Well, good, I'm glad. She needs you. She's putting up a good front, but I'm not buying it.

Victor: I agree with you. You know, when I talked to her on the phone, something wasn't right. That's why I decided to come back now.

Nick: You're doing the right thing.

Victor: You know, your mother is the most important person in my life. If things aren't right with her and me, I can't focus on a damn thing.

Nick: Well, it sounds to me like this trip accomplished a lot more than you think it did.

Victor: (Chuckles) yeah.


Chris: You'd better think of one hell of a good reason why you didn't tell me about the cell phone call.

Phyllis: Okay, here's your good reason. I didn't really think of it. It's not like I was trying to keep it from you, if that's what you're thinking.

Chris: And while we're at it, whatever happened to not saying a word unless I say it's okay?

Phyllis: Well, I'm sorry. He provokes me.

Chris: Oh, he provokes you?

Phyllis: Yeah.

Chris: That's his job, Phyllis, and you played right into his hands.

Phyllis: What are you talking about?

Chris: Everything you blurted out made it fit his suspicion that you and Damon wanted to carve Hughes into tiny, little pieces and would have if he hadn't had a gun.

Phyllis: Well, I'm sorry. I can't just sit back and say nothing, Christine, when shaft is accusing me of conspiracy to murder based on some warped theory of--of--of what?

Chris: Why did you hire me, if you're just gonna stick your head in a noose every time Detective Weber says something that you don't like?

Phyllis: I didn't hire you. Daniel did.

Chris: I'm sorry. I can't continue working with you if you are gonna fight me at every turn. I suggest you find yourself another lawyer.


Lily: Uncle Malcolm, come sit next to me!

Malcolm: Lily, I got this seat. I'm fine.

Lily: Yeah, but I want to talk to you.

Malcolm: It's okay. We can talk right from across the table. I'm good.

Lily: But I--

Dru: Honey, stop fussing, okay? You're gonna sit next to me. Uncle Malcolmís gonna sit next to Devon, and everything's gonna be just ducky. Go ahead, move over. So what are we having?

Lily: Well, in honor of uncle Malcolm, I thought we'd try something different, so I talked Dad into going to that Ethiopian place over on union. You ever had Ethiopian food before?

Malcolm: Oh, yeah, many times.

Lily: Is it good?

Malcolm: Well, I dig it, but you guys are about to find out for yourselves. All right, why don't I show you how to get down with this stuff? Will somebody pass me the flat bread?

Neil: Yeah, here you go.

Malcolm: All right, well, the first thing y'all need to know is that most Ethiopians don't use utensils.

Devon: Really? Now how do we, uh... how do they eat?

Malcolm: They use this right here. See, what we're gonna do is we're gonna scoop all our food onto the plate and just take this and scoop it up.

Devon: Just do that?

Dru: (Laughs)

Malcolm: And it's kind of nice, because-- your parents will like this-- it makes the meals nice and quiet.

Lily: 'Cause there's no clanging silverware?

Malcolm: Exactly.

Devon: Now why don't they just go and buy some silverware?

Malcolm: Well, it's like this, my man. I mean, we have silverware because that's what we know, that's the way we were raised. But they don't, because that's what they know. See, knives and forks would be just as strange to them as their custom is to us. See, that's what's cool about getting to travel. You learn all the different ways people do things.

Lily: Wow. So what else is different in Africa?

Dru: I'm sure almost everything, right? There are a lot of cosmopolitan countries in Africa, right, Malcolm?

Malcolm: Oh, yeah, Drucilla's right. I mean, here we have big cities, and in Africa there's big cities, too, but there's also a lot of small villages. Now there's not a lot of money to go around, so everything's done basically on a barter system.

Devon: You're talking about, like, trading stuff, right?

Malcolm: Yeah, there you go. See, I told at the coffee shop you weren't fooling anybody. Watch out. So basically, people trade what they have for what somebody else needs, right? So dollars don't mean a thing. I mean, a man's not judged by the money in his pocket. He's judged by how much cattle he has-- and you two are gonna like this-- how many lions he's killed.

Devon: Get out of here.

Lily: Did you ever kill a lion?

Malcolm: You know, Lily, your uncle likes to think he's tough, but, no, he's not that tough. You know what? That's basically not my thing. I mean, I got to see the lions up close and personal and to me, they're the most beautiful creatures in the world.

Lily: Oh, Africa sounds so beautiful.

Malcolm: Oh, it is, Lily. It'll blow your mind.

Lily: You know, I would love to go there. Would you take me sometime?


Nikki: Oh, there you are. We were looking for you.

Bobby: I was just walking around the property. That's okay, isn't it?

Nikki: Oh, my God, no. That is against house rules. One demerit.

Bobby: (Chuckles) is Brittany around?

Nikki: She's upstairs settling in.

Bobby: Really? I think I'll go see how she's doing.

Nikki: Okay.

Bobby: Uh, Nikki, let me ask you something.

Nikki: Sure.

Bobby: You don't think I'm taking advantage of our friendship, do you?

Nikki: Oh, my God. What did Katherine say to you?

Bobby: Oh, she was just looking out for you. That's all.

Nikki: And I love her for it, but, no, you are not taking advantage of me. This was my idea. I invited you here.

Bobby: Well, that's true.

Nikki: And I had to twist your arm to agree, didn't I?

Bobby: True again.

Nikki: Okay, well, that's it. Don't give it another thought.

Bobby: Yeah, Nikki, I wish you would just talk to me.

Nikki: Isn't that what we're doing right now?

Bobby: No, no, no, no, about what this is that you're going through. Whatever it is, it's eating away at you, and it's not healthy to keep things locked up.

Nikki: Bobby, will you please stop this?

Bobby: I'm not gonna pressure you. I just hate seeing you torture yourself over something that you did when you were a kid, you know? Sometimes you just gotta forgive yourself so you can move on.

Nikki: I wish it were that simple, but it isnít.

Bobby: Maybe you're the one that's making it more complicated. Maybe if you talk about it, you'll see that maybe it's not that bad.

Nikki: I canít.

Bobby: Okay, but if you change your mind, you know where I'll be.

Nikki: Yeah, right down the hall from me.

Bobby: I gotta tell you, Nikki, you're the best.

Nikki: So are you. Okay, um, let's get going. I have to show you your room.

Bobby: All right, you lead the way.

Nikki: Yeah.


Phyllis: Hey, what are you doing? I would have come into your room.

Damon: Oh, this is fine, Phyllis. They're releasing me tonight.

Phyllis: Oh, good, good. Out of the frying pan, into the fire.

Damon: What does that mean?

Phyllis: I was having a conversation with Christine, and Detective Weber walked into the room.

Damon: Really?

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Damon: And what does our bulldog cop have on his mind?

Phyllis: He talked to the prison officials in Georgia, and they don't have any recording or videotape of my conversation with Dominic Hughes.

Damon: Great.

Phyllis: Which means it's gonna be difficult to prove that I tried to convince Dominic not to come to Genoa City.

Damon: So it'll be the criminal's word against ours.

Phyllis: Yeah, and Dominicís version is playing to Detective Weber like a bedtime story, especially compared to ours, and it gets worse.


Lily: So could you, Uncle Malcolm, take me to Africa?

Malcolm: You know, Lily, I think that's a trip you should take with your parents and Devon. It'd be good for all of you.

Devon: Yeah. Hey, do you guys think we could really do that sometime?

Neil: Let's give it some thought.

Lily: I think Uncle Malcolm should be our tour guide.

Neil: It'd be great if we could all take a trip to Africa, our family and Malcolm.

Dru: You know, why don't we all stop pressing Malcolm, you know?

Malcolm: Maybe someday, Lily, you and me will take that trip together.

Lily: That would be awesome. So tell us what happened to you there. Like, you know, where did you live, and why did you stay away so long?

Nikki: Oh, Miguel, I'm so glad I caught you. Listen, while you're still out, could you pick up some extra groceries? Yeah, we're gonna have some houseguests, a man and a gir-- a young woman. Okay, thanks.


Brittany: (Laughs) (door opens)

Victor: What?

Nikki: Victor, what are you doing here? I wasn't expecting you.

Victor: I decided it was time to come home.

Nikki: Where have you been?

Victor: What's the matter with you? Let's not talk about that now. I was looking forward to coming home, holding you in my arms and telling you how much I love you. Come here.

Nikki: This is just such a surprise.

Victor: What's the matter with you? What's going on?


Paul: Well, sometimes things that happened a long time ago affect the way you see your life. The past becomes the present, that kind of thing.

Ashley: Well, the past sure can affect your judgment.

Paul: It doesn't sound like you're talking about my friend now.

Ashley: I know all about it, Paul-- clinging to the past, romanticizing it and letting yourself believe that things are still the way that they once were, even though it couldn't be further from the truth.

Paul: Sounds like you're the one with a story.

Ashley: Oh, boy, not one I want to tell.

Paul: That's all right. I understand.

Ashley: But I still find it amazing how you can delude yourself into believing what you want to believe.

Paul: Ashley, it's not a sin. You know, this happens to everyone from time to time.

Ashley: Not the way it happened to me, not the same way. I've had to pay for it dearly.

Paul: Are you talking about your breakup with brad?

Ashley: Yeah. I'm sorry. I'm just filled with a lot of regret.

Paul: I know that's no way to live.

Ashley: Yeah, tell me about it.

Paul: I can, you know. I've been there.

Paul: If you had it to do all over again...

Ashley: What? Would I make the same mistakes? Yeah, I probably would. I mean, not if I knew how it was going to end, of course, but you don't know that.

Paul: Except in hindsight.

Ashley: And then it's too late.


Lily: Why is everyone so quiet? Did I say something wrong?

Malcolm: Lily, you're fine. It's just not something I want to talk about.

Lily: I'm sorry.

Malcolm: It's okay.

Dru: Listen, why don't you kids dish out some ice cream?

Lily: Okay.

Devon: Let's go.

Neil: Hey, Malcolm, she didn't mean to upset you.

Malcolm: I know. It's, uh, just a long story.

Neil: I'm sure it is.

Malcolm: Neil, don't let this little dinner here give you the wrong idea.

Neil: I'm not. This is just one dinner. It's a start, right?

Lily: You know what? We don't have any ice cream, so can we go get some?

Neil: Tell you what, I'll drive us all down. It'll only be a minute, okay?

Lily: Okay. Do you want to come, too, Uncle Malcolm?

Dru: Um, actually, Uncle Malcolmís gonna stay here with me, honey. We're gonna talk.

Lily: All right, we'll be right back.

Dru: All right, baby.

Neil: See you in a minute.

Malcolm: All right, Drucilla, we're alone. Now you can let me have it.

Dru: What are you talking about?

Malcolm: I know you want to get on me for how I dealt with Lily.

Dru: No, I think you really did the best that you could. Obviously, my daughter is captivated by her uncle.

Malcolm: Where's Olivia tonight? I figured she'd be here.

Dru: I invited her, but she opted not to come. She didn't want you to be overwhelmed. Please tell me you're not gonna mess with her heart again.

Malcolm: Drucilla, I did not come here to mess with anybody.

Dru: Unfortunately, that doesn't make me feel any better.


Damon: Well, it appears our best hope is for Dominic to admit he's lying.

Phyllis: We both know that's not gonna happen anytime soon. We have to figure out a way to get out of this mess.

Damon: You said, "it gets worse." What does that mean?

Phyllis: Detective Weber, um, knows about the phone call that I made on my cell phone.

Damon: Cell phone?

Phyllis: Yeah, right outside of Dominicís motel room.

Damon: Oh, that's the call that brought me there.

Phyllis: Yeah, I mean, it was when I just realized that Dominic was lying to us, right? And, um, I wanted to tell you.

Damon: Well, maybe that wasn't such a good move.

Phyllis: Okay, maybe it wasn't, but I didn't know you were gonna come charging over with your samurai sword.

Damon: Well, isn't it a good thing I did? You might not be here otherwise.

Phyllis: Everything I did was to protect you. You know that, don't you? I get the feeling you're blaming me for this.

Damon: Ain't nobody blaming you, Phyllis. What's wrong? Why we fighting?

Phyllis: We're not fighting.

Damon: Okay.

Phyllis: Listen, we have to figure out how we're gonna get out of this. We have to figure out how we're gonna prove we're innocent. Do you understand that? Or else we're gonna get arrested, and we're gonna go to prison.

Damon: You know, I was just stupid. I let my guard down. But I was actually holding out hope that that bastard actually felt some re-- some remorse.

Phyllis: What?


Malcolm: Drucilla, I really don't understand why you think I might hurt your family.

Dru: It's not about the intention. It's about what could happen.

Malcolm: Okay, fine. I'm gonna leave the decision up to you.

Dru: What decision?

Malcolm: You want me to leave town, hmm? Is that what you need to feel more secure about clinging to your perfect little world you got going on?

Dru: I'm never going to feel secure while you're in this town! Don't you know that Neil and Lily are the most important things to me? I'm not gonna let anything destroy that, not even you!


Phyllis: Officer, where are you taking this man?

Cop: Headquarters. He'll stay in the lockup overnight. Then in the morning he'll be transferred to the county jail.

Dominic: Hey there, redhead. I'll see you and your boyfriend in the big house. That's exactly where you're going.

Damon: Don't count on it, Hughes.

Dominic: Tell it to the courts, Porter.

Dominic: Hey, you guys have a nice night.

Phyllis: You too.

Phyllis: Well, that's it. It's time to do something radical.


Ashley: Could we please change the subject?

Paul: Sure.

Ashley: So I guess you've been spending a lot of time with Nikki.

Paul: Nikki and I go way, way back, and she is a very dear friend.

Ashley: Oh, is that the friend that you were trying to help? Oops, sorry. I'm not supposed to ask that, am I? So is it me, or is she not herself lately?

Paul: Let me just say it's probably not you.

Ashley: Hmm, and she's also probably blaming me for interfering in her life, right?

Paul: You are not the biggest problem in her life right now.

Ashley: Really?

Paul: Ashley, we shouldn't be talking about this.

Ashley: Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't realize we were.

Paul: So tell me something. Um, Brad. Tell me about his background.

Ashley: What do you mean, "About his background"?

Paul: Well, I just don't know him that well. You know, his history, where he comes from.

Ashley: Why do you want to know?

Paul: I'm just curious.

Ashley: Oh, come on, I don't buy that for a second. There has to be some reason why you're asking.

Paul: Well, occupational hazard.

Ashley: Okay, is something going on with Brad?

Paul: No, we just mentioned him when I was talking to you. That's all, nothing more than that.

Ashley: I gotta go.

Paul: Hey, thanks for the scone.

Ashley: Oh, sure.

Paul: Maybe we can do it again sometime. Hey, I got it. Don't worry about it.

Ashley: Okay, thanks. Um, if there is something I should know, you would tell me, right?

Paul: Yes, but there isnít.

Ashley: Okay. Have a nice holiday.

Paul: Merry Christmas.

Ashley: Thanks. You too.


Victor: I certainly thought you'd be happier to see me.

Nikki: I am happy to see you. I just... I'm taken aback. I didn't know you were gonna back this soon, and all of a sudden, here you are. It's just a lot to take in. That's all.

Victor: Why are you acting this way?

Nikki: What way?

Victor: As if I'm intruding, as if there's something you're not telling me. What are you not telling me?

Nikki: Okay, um, I had no idea when you would be returning. For all I knew, you would have been gone for months. And I made a decision, and you're not gonna like it.

Victor: And what is that decision?


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

Bobby: If I was married to a woman like Nikki, I wouldn't leave her alone here in the boonies.

Victor: Is that right?

Malcolm: Why am I such a threat to you?

Dru: You know, I still don't know why you came back here.

Man: Well, lay it on me, honey, 'cause I can make you
