Malcolm: I'm gonna leave it up to you, Dru. I'll let you make the decision.

Dru: What decision? What are you talking about?

Malcolm: I want you to think about it.  Why do you want me to leave town? Is that what it's gonna take for you to rest easy?

Dru: Yes. I'm very sorry, but I don't think I have any other choice.

Malcolm: Wow. Things really have changed, haven't they?

Dru: Yes, in so many ways, and I'm sorry. I just--I didn't expect to say it like this.

Malcolm: But you did say it, Dru.

Dru: Well, try to understand, please.

Malcolm: No, see, what I don't understand is, what are you so afraid of?

Dru: I think you may have an idea.

Malcolm: Dru, you and I, we lived in the same town for years, we never had a problem.

Dru: What's your point?

Malcolm: What's so different now?

Dru: You, you're different.

Malcolm: Okay, so, I changed. So what? That makes me a threat to you?

Dru: From where I'm standing, yes, it does.


Phyllis: All right, it's settled. Daniel's gonna-- gonna come over here, he'll wait until the doctor signs the release papers and then he'll take you home, all right?

Damon: Well, that's fine, but we're not done talking.

Phyllis: We'll talk later.

Damon: Phyllis, now I distinctly heard you say it's time to do something radical.

Phyllis: I don't recall saying that.

Damon: No, no, shh, shh. Now I'm not saying I disagree with you. I would just like to know what you have in your mind.

Phyllis: All I know is this detective isn't gonna hang me out to dry again. Oh, Damon, Damon, we have to think outside the box. I mean, I'm talking way outside the box... something radical, and I'm saying radical with a capital "R."


Paul: Thanks.

Nick: Hey, Paul. How ya doing, buddy?

Paul: Hey, Nick. How's it going?

Nick: I can't complain.

Paul: So, um, I gotta say I'm kind of surprised to see you here. I thought being all wrapped up at Newman Enterprises-- you're running things over there now-- that you wouldn't be here.

Nick: Yeah, yeah, with Sharon and me both working, it's been kind of hectic. We're looking to get somebody to run the place, but until then...

Paul: I guess somebody's got to keep an eye on things.

Nick: That's right.

Paul: So what's going on with Sharon?

Nick: Oh, I guess you haven't heard.

Paul: Unh-unh.

Nick: She's the new spokesperson for Jabot Cosmetics.

Paul: Really? That's kind of an odd combination, isn't it? I would think that she would be with Newman.

Nick: You would think. I'm hoping that's gonna happen sooner rather than later, but she got this job before my dad handed me the company.

Paul: Everything's in the timing, I guess.

Nick: Yeah, I guess so.

Paul: So how's it going for her over there?

Nick: Great. She must be a natural because they're really eating her up over there.

Paul: Well, and it's good for you, too. I mean, by the time she comes back to Newman, she'll have all this on-the-job experience, courtesy of Jabot.


Brad: I think it's good. Um, maybe we should talk about the spring rollout, obviously, and I don't know, mention the new shades. Other than that, I'd say it's ready to go.

Sharon: Really?

Brad: Mm-hmm, really. The speechwriter did a nice job.

Sharon: Oh, actually, I wrote it myself. Uh, is that not okay?

Brad: Oh, no, that's, uh, definitely okay. I'm just, uh, surprised. I mean, you can do whatever works for you, but first time at bat, you knock it out of the park. Nice job, Sharon.

Abby: Daddy?

Brad: Yes, honey.

Abby: Wanna see the picture I drew?

Brad: Yes, I do. Come here. Show me the picture. Jump up here. Ah. Let's see. Wow. That is beautiful.

Abby: That's our house...

Brad: Mm-hmm.

Abby: And those are the trees...

Brad: Yeah.

Abby: And that's a smiley face sun.

Brad: That is the prettiest smiley face sun I've ever seen.

Abby: Daddy?

Brad: Yeah.

Abby: Are we going home soon?

Brad: Yeah, yeah, we're gonna go home soon. I just have to finish up with Sharon. Why don't you go back out to Susanís desk and draw me one more picture, and then we should be ready to go, okay?

Abby: Okay.

Brad: Give me a kiss. All right, love you.

Abby: Love you, too.

Sharon: Well, it's not easy balancing work and family, huh?

Brad: No, no, it's not, especially when the nanny can't work late and Ash is, of course, at her father's house, so-- I'll tell you, Sharon, sometimes I look at my life, and I wonder how things got so messed up.


Ashley: Well, how extensive is the damage? Oh, no. Who's flying out there? Well, you tell her to call me as soon as she hits the ground, okay? All right, stay in touch.

Jack: Ash, don't plan on me being around for dinner. I have a date again. Hey, what just happened?

Ashley: That was L.A. Our distribution center in Bakersfield is on fire. It's under control, but it looks like a complete loss.

Jack: Oh, jeez.

Ashley: This is gonna wreak havoc with our shipping schedule. Most of our last-minute holiday stock was there. And guess what? Because of cost, we had to cut down on our insurance coverage. There's no way we're gonna recoup our losses. I feel sick to my stomach, Jack. This is the last thing we needed.

Jack: Does Dad know about this?

Ashley: No, I don't think so. I need your help.

Jack: What kind of help?

Ashley: I need to figure out how to handle this.

Jack: Ash, I feel terrible. I can't get involved. You know that. I can't have anything to do--

Ashley: This is an emergency, Jack. We have a crisis on our hands.

Jack: Tell that to Victor. He set the rule, you guys agreed to it. Look, unless you wanna give back his $75 million, I can't get involved.


Victor: What's going on here?

Bobby: Hello, Mr. Newman.

Nikki: Well, I don't know if you recall this, but Bobby was married a couple of weeks ago to Brittany Hodges, and they are here because at the moment they have no other place to go. Their condo's being renovated, and so I offered to let them move in temporarily.

Victor: You did what?

Nikki: Well, I didn't know how long you were going to be gone. Frankly, it gets pretty lonely out here, Victor. Certainly you don't begrudge me company.


Damon: I know that look on your face, Phyllis. It usually spells trouble.

Phyllis: I'm trying to get us out of trouble, not into it.

Damon: You're only-- you're only gonna make matters worse if you do something crazy. The smart thing is to listen to your attorney, you know that.

Phyllis: No, I think the smart thing is not to go around slicing people with a samurai sword.

Damon: Phyllis, are we back to that?

Phyllis: Damon, we're in trouble, all right? You can't just sit back and think that your fairy godmother is gonna rescue you. And if that's what you think, I have to go this alone. I have to do something.

Damon: Fine. Tell me what it is.

Phyllis: I'm not sure yet. We are drowning here. I am trying to save us, okay? This is not gonna happen to me again.

Damon: Phyllis, be rational.

Phyllis: No, you be rational. I'm taking action.

Damon: You know, you talk like this half-baked plan of yours is a 1-person lifeboat.

Phyllis: Listen, I'm trying to save-- I'm wasting time talking to you. I have to go.

Daniel: What's going on?

Damon: Talk to your mother.

Daniel: Mom?

Phyllis: Don't worry. Everything is fine, okay?

Daniel: Okay, is there anything I can do?

Phyllis: Just--just make sure that, um, that Damon gets home, all right?

Daniel: Okay, yeah, sure, but where are you going?

Phyllis: I-I just-- I have to do something.


Malcolm: So this is all about you.

Dru: No, it's about my family and everything I did to pull it together.

Malcolm: Well, if it's that's delicate, things must really be hanging on by a thread, Dru.

Dru: Hardly.

Malcolm: Then why am I such a threat to you?

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

Malcolm: Dru, I told you. I came back because of a promise I made to Nate.

Dru: That boy is 3,000 miles away.

Malcolm: I didn't know that when I got here.

Dru: But you know it now and you're still here.

Malcolm: You know, Dru, there's people that are actually happy to see me. Now granted, your husband's putting on a good front, but I know that lily is happy to see me.

Dru: Let's talk about my daughter.

Malcolm: Okay, let's talk about her.

Dru: Fine, let's do it.

Malcolm: Go ahead. What? Speak on it, Dru.

Dru: You know that lily is the most precious thing in my life.

Malcolm: As she should be, she's your daughter.

Dru: And when you look at her, be honest, do you see something special?

Malcolm: Yes, I do.

Dru: That's my point.

Malcolm: I see a young lady who's growing up very fast. I see you in your daughter. I see a little girl who sees something in me that she wants to reach out to.

Dru: See, that's a problem. I can't have that, Malcolm.

Malcolm: Dru, what's wrong with you? I did everything you asked me to at dinner. Why, I don't know, but I backed off.

Dru: I know, and I appreciate that.

Malcolm: But look at you. You still don't trust me.

Dru: Because it's dangerous. You're here searching for something. I'm not sure what it is, and neither are you, I think, but it's dangerous. It makes me very nervous.

Malcolm: You know, it seems like your life would have been a hell of a lot easier if I had just died after all.

Dru: How can you say such a thing?

Malcolm: What am I supposed to say? That's basically what I'm hearing.

Dru: That's not the way I feel.

Malcolm: You just don't wanna be anywhere near me.

Dru: You still have not told me why you have come back to Genoa City.

Malcolm: You know, Dru, right now I'm wondering the same thing. I'm gonna give you your space, but you tell Lily that I'll see her again. I'm not leaving without saying good-bye to her. I made her that promise and I won't break it.

Malcolm: Good luck.


Sharon: So how is Abby handling everything?

Brad: Not great. She's sad a lot of the time, doesn't understand why her Mommy has to live somewhere else.

Sharon: Well, I'm sure this is hard on her, but just give her a little time. You know, it's amazing how kids can adapt to a situation. I'm sure she'll be fine.

Brad: Yeah, I'm sure she will, too. It's just tough watching her go through it.

Sharon: Um, listen, Brad, uh, if it helps, I, uh, I have some idea what you're going through. I mean, Nick and I have certainly had our share of ups and downs, times when I thought that it was over with us for sure. But we managed to work our problems out, so maybe you and Ashley will, too.

Brad: Yeah, well, with our particular situation, I don't feel real optimistic, Sharon. Anyway, let's, uh, let's talk about you. Must be pretty crazy around your house with Nick taking over at Newman Enterprises and you starting to work here.

Sharon: Yeah, it can be a little tricky at times, but, um, you know, we work out our schedules. One thing we both agree on is that family comes first.

Brad: Mm-hmm. Well, that's how it should be.

Sharon: Mm-hmm.

Brad: Can I give you a piece of advice?

Sharon: Sure.

Brad: You and Nick seem to be pretty solid. Protect that. Don't let anyone or anything come between the two of you. Because when you least expect it, it can happen.


Paul: So tell me, Nick, did you plan it that way? Did you get Sharon over at Jabot and then plan to have her gain all that experience and come back to Newman?

Nick: I wish I could say it was that strategic.

Paul: You have to admit, it could work to your advantage.

Nick: You know, Paul, I've never really thought about it like that, but you're right. Well, she's at Jabot now, so I'm gonna go pick up the kids and, uh, grab some dinner with 'em and then go by and see if she's still there.

Paul: So it sounds like she's burning the midnight oil.

Nick: You know, my wife, she needs a lot goin' on, which is why I encouraged this job thing in the first place. What I didn't expect was how amazing she would be. I think Sharon was kinda held back in life by circumstances that were outside her control. So she's been searching for something, trying to find herself, and now it's happening.

Paul: Well, she is a very lucky woman, having a husband that's that supportive. And it's a good choice on your part, too. I mean, giving her a chance to spread her wings, it just, uh... well, I wish...

Nick: What?

Paul: Well, I was just thinking back to Chris and me. I mean, not that it's a parallel situation, because it isn't, but if I had been more patient, more understanding at a time when Chris was trying to find herself, I, um...

Nick: You think you guys would still be together?

Paul: Well, I think it's a real possibility, yeah. I was a little crazy back then. A lot crazy, actually. I was outta control where Chris was concerned. And I just don't think there's really a possibility that the two of us could get back together and build a relationship again.

Nick: But you'd like to.

Paul: Wishing doesn't make it so.

Nick: You know what, Paul? Keep your head up, man. Miracles can happen.

Paul: Thanks. I'll remember that. Gotta get back to the office. I got some midnight oil of my own to burn.

Nick: All right. Take it easy.

Paul: See you.


Ashley: I don't expect you to come back and run the company, Jack. Just come into the office and meet with the board once or twice.

Jack: Sorry, no can do.

Ashley: Victor never has to find out.

Jack: Yeah, like he doesn't have spies everywhere.

Ashley: You really gonna turn your back on our family's company?

Jack: Don't talk to me that way. That's not fair, and you know it. I would like nothing better than to roll up my sleeves and dig in right now. This company's in trouble, Ash. You really want to risk making things worse?

Ashley: No.

Jack: Then start looking at things they way they are. Besides, I already got something on my plate, something that could turn out to be huge.


Bobby: I can imagine how that looked, me coming down the stairs.

Victor: Can you now?

Bobby: Yeah. I kinda wish I had Brittany on my arm.

Victor: Even if that had been the case, I would still have a lot of questions to ask my wife.

Brittany: Oh, hello, Mr. Newman.

Bobby: You've met my wife Brittany?

Victor: I'm not sure.

Brittany: I was here at the gala last year. Also I visited your recreation center, the opening ceremony.

Nikki: Brittany was one of the original stars of our Glow by Jabot campaign.

Victor: I see. So... when did you two move in here?

Bobby: Just a few hours ago.

Brittany: I hope you don't mind. Mrs. Newman didn't think you'd be back home this soon.

Victor: I'm sure she didnít.

Brittany: Your wife has been very kind to us. We really appreciate it.

Bobby: Uh, listen, ladies, would you mind giving me and Mr. Newman a minute alone?

Nikki: Bobby, I don't--

Bobby: No, please. That is, if it's okay with you.

Victor: It's all right.

Nikki: Well, Brittany, why don't you and I go and make some tea?


Phyllis: Hello. Anyone here?

Worm: Oh, uh, sorry. I was just looking over some catalogues.

Phyllis: Oh, okay. Um, listen, can you help me out?

Worm: Uh, redhead, huh? Well, I got some great little butterflies and flowers. Where do you want it-- on your backside, your shoulder, your ankle?

Phyllis: Uh, no, I don't want a tattoo.

Worm: Well, maybe you're in the wrong place.

Phyllis: No, I-- I'm in the right place. I saw you have costumes and wigs and things like that.

Worm: What are you into, kinky or straight? What kind of party is it?

Phyllis: It's not for a party. You don't understand.

Worm: Well, lay it on me, honey, 'cause I can make you into anything you want.

Phyllis: Can you make me into a man?

Worm: (Laughs) ah, the happy, healthy life of the indoor cat.

Worm: I'm a tattoo artist, not a surgeon. I think you want the hospital down the street. But if you're going for a sex change, I think they make you see a shrink first.

Phyllis: You're-- you're a very funny guy. Very funny. It's just a disguise. It's a 1-time thing.

Worm: Well, why would a looker like you want to become a man?

Phyllis: Listen, can you help me out or do I have to go someplace else?

Worm: Well, there is nowhere else, not at this time of night.

Phyllis: What's the answer, yes or no?

Worm: Well, let me put some stuff together, and I'll see what I can do.

Phyllis: Hurry, please.

Worm: I will.


Olivia: You're lucky. You caught me on a break.

Malcolm: Did you get the message I left on your service?

Olivia: No. It's been crazy busy here. I haven't had a chance to check. Why, was it important?

Malcolm: I need to talk to you.

Olivia: I need to talk to you, too. I want to invite you to stay with me.

Malcolm: Wow. Um... Olivia, after all that we've been through, it couldn't have been easy for you to offer that.

Olivia: Actually, it wasn't that difficult. I mean, come on, it makes sense. You need a place to stay, I have an extra room, we have a lot of catching up to do.

Malcolm: Well, I sure didn't see this one coming. Liv, I appreciate it, but I canít.

Olivia: You know, if you assume I'm jumping to conclusions about us, I assure you, I'm not.

Malcolm: Olivia, believe me, I don't assume anything anymore. I'm leaving town.

Olivia: Why? Wait, you're-- you're not gonna go to England, are you? I mean, we talked about this.

Malcolm: Okay, Olivia, right now I really don't know where I'm going. Now I know you want me to wait awhile before I see Nate. But I don't know if I'm okay with that after all.

Olivia: Oh, come on, we talked about this. You know, I can call the school. I can have you blocked from seeing him.

Malcolm: Olivia, Olivia, Olivia, please, please, it doesn't need to get that deep. I don't want to fight about Nate. We did that. I'd just like it if you and I, we could work together.

Olivia: And how are we gonna do that if you leave town?

Malcolm: Olivia, I been through a lot. There was a time when I didn't know if I was gonna make it. And I can tell you, not a day went by where I didn't think about unfinished business. Not a day went by where I didn't think about Nate. Look, I know you think I was wrong, staying quiet all those years. Maybe you're right, I don't know. But I can't change the past. I did what I did, and believe me, I had my reasons. Olivia, all I have for sure is right now. I know that I have something to offer your son. So I'm begging you, please, reconsider letting me see him, 'cause I gotta see him.

Olivia: That depends.

Malcolm: On?

Olivia: If you'll think about my offer to stay, make my place your home base.

Malcolm: God, Olivia, if it was only that easy.

Olivia: What's the problem? This has to do with Drucilla, doesn't it?


Lily: Why, 'cause I don't like nuts and marshmallows cluttering up my ice cream?

Devon: I'm telling you, that's what makes it good, all right?

Lily: No, no, anything that 'causes there to be less chocolate is not a good thing. Hey, Mommy, we're back.

Dru: Hi, honey. I wasn't expecting you guys to take so long.

Devon: I know. We couldn't decide on what flavor to get.

Lily: Yeah, so Daddy let us buy all three so we'd be sure to have something Uncle Malcolm liked. Where is he anyway?

Dru: Um, he had to leave, sweetheart.

Lily: What? Why?

Dru: Well, he-- there was someplace he needed to be, and so he couldn't stay.

Lily: Oh.

Dru: Yeah. So--

Neil: Well, listen, what about the, uh, the homework situation?

Lily: I have a history paper to proofread.

Neil: Well, you better get proofreading. What about you, Devon?

Devon: I got some algebra to finish up.

Neil: No, that's "I have," not "I got."

Devon: Oh, for real? You have to do it, not me? That's cool.

Neil: Yeah, very funny. All right.

Lily: Well, can we at least have some ice cream first?

Dru: Yeah, if you put it in the freezer after you take some.

Lily: No, Mom, we're gonna put it in the oven, okay?

Dru: Oh, you and your fresh self.

Neil: Do you hear that sassin'?


Victor: Let's go in here.

Bobby: Mr. Newman, I know you just got back and you're anxious to spend some time with your wife, so I'm gonna get to the point.

Victor: Please do.

Bobby: It was very generous of your wife to offer for us to stay here, but I don't want to cause any problems.

Victor: What is your point?

Bobby: If you'd rather we hit the road, that's fine.

Victor: Let me say this, I've gathered by now that your stay here is on the up-and-up. The question that comes to mind, why do you need a roof over your head?

Bobby: Well, the club's going through some changes, and I got quite a bit of money tied up in renovating my condo. Besides, I thought I'd be helping out Nikki.

Victor: Helping out Nikki in what way?

Bobby: Well, since you've been gone, she's been pretty lonely up here. I thought that Brittany and I could keep her company.


Ashley: What does that mean, you have something on your plate?

Jack: Well, I've been itching to get back in the saddle. Not that I haven't enjoyed my life of leisure, but I miss goin' to work.

Ashley: Jack, do you have a new job?

Jack: I have a new job offer.

Ashley: From where?

Jack: Chancellor Industries. Katherine has asked me to be her new C.E.O.

Ashley: You're kidding me.

Jack: She's looking to replace Elliot Hampton.

Ashley: What did you say?

Jack: I told her I'd think about it. It's a great company, Ash. I mean, it's right up my alley, it's a perfect fit for me, and it's a great opportunity.

Ashley: Yeah, I know, but...

Jack: Go ahead. But what?

Ashley: I don't know. It's hard to imagine you working anywhere but Jabot.

Jack: I'm sure it'll take some getting used to. Going back to Jabot is not an option for me. Enough time has passed, I can work somewhere else.

Ashley: It sounds like you've already made up your mind.

Jack: Could you try to be happy for me? For the first time in a long while, I have a bright future, something to look forward to.

Ashley: I wish I felt the same way.


Brad: Then after you're finished speaking, we'll open it up for questions. I'll join you at the podium. You won't have to field them by yourself.

Sharon: Oh, no, that's okay. Uh, you don't have to.

Brad: You sure? Those vendors can be pretty tough.

Sharon: Well, then it's a good thing I did my homework.

Brad: (Chuckles) the lady wants to fly solo.

Sharon: I think it's a good idea. After all, you won't always be there to hold my hand.

Brad: That's true. Plus, I'll be able to be on that overseas conference call at 7. That's important.

Sharon: Okay. Then we're agreed. I will handle the event and I will report back to you.

Brad: Okay.

Sharon: Thank you for meeting with me.

Brad: You don't have to thank me, Sharon. It's my pleasure. You're gonna knock 'em dead tomorrow.

Sharon: (Laughs) you know, it feels kinda strange, getting paid to talk about this stuff.

Brad: What do you mean?

Sharon: Well, I just-- I've been using Jabot products since I was a teenager. Uh, don't tell Victor that.

Brad: Really?

Sharon: Absolutely. Oh, I was a Jabot fan all the way. That's why it just-- I don't know, it's funny that my job is to tell women how great the products are. It would be like you telling people how much you like baseball or something.

Brad: (Chuckles)

Sharon: What?

Brad: Aw, I-- I just think your enthusiasm's really great. It's been pretty somber around here lately. We can use your energy.


Worm: (Yawns)

Phyllis: Okay, now we're talking.

Worm: Well, you know what they say.

Phyllis: Right.

Worm: Clothes makes the man. So, uh, why don't you go and change behind the curtain? And then come out and hop on the stool. It's--it's gonna take more than different threads to, uh, turn you from a babe to a stud.

Phyllis: (Chuckles)


Dru: Neil, I swear those kids used every spoon in the kitchen to scoop ice cream.

Neil: So what happened?

Dru: Huh?

Neil: With Malcolm. We went out to get dessert, you guys stayed behind. Something tells me you two had a talk.

Dru: A talk, what?

Neil: Yeah, did you have an argument?

Dru: What would give you that idea?

Neil: Oh, I don't know, maybe the fact that he left without saying good-bye.

Dru: Oh, you know how dark and mysterious your brother's been these past few days.

Neil: Meaning what? Seems to me every day he's here, he's more and more like his old self.

Dru: You can say that after the way he's been treating you?

Neil: Drucilla, I am watching that wall slowly crumble. That attitude is slipping away. Mark my words, by this time next week, me and my brother are gonna be like this. We're gonna be as tight as we once were.

Dru: Mm.

Neil: And quite frankly, after the year I've been having, I'm looking forward to it. You know, all work and no play, that's no way to live. And Malcolm is gonna put the "p" back in my party. We're gonna hang out. It's gonna be so much fun. I'm gonna play ball with him, everything that I--

Dru: He's leaving town.

Neil: What the hell are you talking about?


Malcolm: Olivia, it's better if I just go.

Olivia: Better for whom? You don't have to protect her, Malcolm. I know exactly how selfish my sister is. What I don't understand is why you're letting her get away with it. Don't you see how self-serving it is? I mean, here you are. You're literally back from the dead. You have a brother who is thrilled to have a second chance with you, a niece who thinks you walk on water. Heaven forbid we should make things uncomfortable for Drucilla.

Malcolm: She's got a lot on her plate right now.

Olivia: So do the rest of us, but you don't see us hustling you out of town.

Malcolm: Liv, she doesn't feel I fit in her life anymore.

Olivia: Well, that's too bad.

Malcolm: Look, it is what it is, all right? I will just come back another day when things have settled down.

Olivia: No! Malcolm, for you to leave town because of Drucilla, that's just insane. This is your home. This is where you belong. You have every right to stay here. I want you to stay here.


Phyllis: Can you go any faster?

Worm: I'm going as fast as I can.

Phyllis: How do I look?

Worm: Hold still. I'm gettin' there. I'm an artist, lady. If I'm taking your cash, you're gonna get your money's worth.

Worm: Hmm.


Brittany: This tea is delicious, Nikki. Thank you.

Nikki: Oh, you're welcome.

Brittany: Your husband seems pretty mellow.

Nikki: Oh, he has his days. There's nothing for you to worry about.

Brittany: That's not exactly what I meant.

Nikki: Oh?

Brittany: You and Mr. Newman have been married a long time, right?

Nikki: Oh, yes.

Brittany: It just seems kind of sad. I mean, Bobby and I just got married, and we can barely stand to be apart for a minute, and here we are wondering how your husband's going to react to Bobby and me staying with you. I just thought...

Nikki: You thought what?

Brittany: I just thought that you two knowing each other so well, it-- it would be different somehow.

Nikki: Brittany, you're a very sweet, charming young woman, and I know that Bobby loves you very much, but you have a lot to learn about marriage.

Brittany: Right now, it's just like a dream come true. What do you suppose is going on with our husbands? I don't hear any yelling.

Nikki: That's a good sign. I think I'm gonna go check it out.


Bobby: But I gotta tell you, if I was married to a woman like Nikki, I wouldn't leave her alone here in the boonies.

Victor: Is that right?

Bobby: Look, don't get me wrong, I just think that Nikki is-- she's a very special woman.

Victor: Yes, Mr. Marsino, she's a very special woman.

Victor: Now since you have no place to stay tonight, I guess it's all right if you and your wife stay over.

Bobby: Thank you.


Jack: Listen, I gotta get outta here. As I said, I got a date. You okay?

Ashley: No, I'm not.

Jack: Hey, I'm sorry about the fire. You'll handle this just fine. I know you will. See you. (Telephone rings)

Ashley: Hello.

Abby: Hi, Mommy.

Ashley: Hi, baby. Where are you?

Abby: At Daddy's office.

Ashley: Oh, you havin' fun?

Abby: Not really. There's nothing to do.

Ashley: Oh. Well, you'll be home soon, right?

Abby: Will you be there?

Ashley: No, honey. I'm-- I'm still-- I'm still at Grandpaís.

Abby: I miss you, Mommy.

Ashley: I miss you, too, sweetie. I miss you so much.

Brad: Here, honey. Let me talk to Mommy for a minute. Thanks. Hi, Ash.

Ashley: Hi. Abby sounds kinda down.

Brad: Yeah, she's bored. She misses her Mommy.

Ashley: I, uh, I miss her, too.

Brad: How about I bring her over?

Ashley: I would love that. I could really use a hug from my little girl right now. Thank you so much.

Brad: We'll see you soon. (Chuckles)

Abby: We're gonna see Mommy?

Brad: Yes, we are.

Abby: Yay! I love you, Daddy.


Malcolm: Liv, it's nice to know that somebody actually wants me around.

Olivia: Of course I want you around. But you know what? This isn't about me, this is about you.

Malcolm: What about Nate?

Olivia: I'll think about it, okay? That's all I can promise. It's the best I can do.

Malcolm: Fair enough.

Olivia: But we were talking about you. I mean, we're your family. I mean, how can you go live someplace where you don't even know anyone after everything you've been through? That doesn't make any sense.

Malcolm: I'm used to it by now, Liv.

Olivia: Maybe so, but you chose to come back here. Which means, despite everything that's happened in the past, you wanted to be with us. You were ready to come home.

Malcolm: And that was my mistake.

Olivia: No, Malcolm, you've suffered enough. You've been away for years. I mean, strangers saved your life. And I'm grateful for that, but now it's time for you to be here with us, the people that love you.

Malcolm: Liv... I don't want to ruin anything.

Olivia: Look, um, Drucilla's not thinking clearly right now. But she'll get over it. Please, Malcolm, I want you to reconsider.

Malcolm: No wonder you're such a great doctor. You care. That's why I fell for you all those years ago.


Neil: I don't get this. Leaving? Why now?

Dru: He wanted to go. I don't know.

Neil: Just like that, wanted to go?

Dru: You know your brother. If something doesn't fit into his plans, he just ups and leaves.

Neil: Wait a minute. The guy comes over here for dinner, doesn't say a word about this, has a great time telling his stories all about Africa, has the two kids practically eating out of the palm of his hand, gets a job someplace so he can spend more time next to his niece, and then all of a sudden, he's gonna take... no, it doesn't make sense.

Dru: Honey, if he wants to go, just let him go.

Neil: No. You know what? That's unacceptable.

Dru: What are you talking about? Where are you going?

Neil: Where do you think I'm going? To find Malcolm to stop him from doing this.

Dru: Neil!


Worm: You know, uh, I think we aced it, baby. I was sweatin' it out for awhile, but now that I look at ya, I think it's some of my best work ever.

Phyllis: So I look like a man?

Worm: See for yourself right over at the mirror.

Phyllis: (Deep voice) all right, all right.

Worm: So, uh, what's the getup for? I mean, it ain't Halloween. Uh, what are you doing it for?

Phyllis: (Normal voice) I'm trying to save my life.


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

Nikki: Ours was the greatest love story ever.

Victor: What do you mean, "was"?

Neil: Is it something Dru said? Is she the reason you're leaving?

Officer: Sorry, buddy. I'm gonna have to take you in.

Phyllis: (Deep voice) what's the charge?
