Phyllis: Okay. Show time. Show time, folks. It's show-- its show time, folks.


(Door opens)

Chris: I swear, I could wring that woman's neck with my bare hands.

Paul: Whoa. So I take it your meeting with Phyllis didn't go that well.

Chris: It was a disaster. I told her to find herself another attorney. I've been driving around for the past two hours trying to cool down.

Paul: Oh, wow. Considering the price of gas, you must really be angry. So what happened?

Chris: For starters, you wouldn't believe the things she blabbed to Detective Weber after I repeatedly told her to keep quiet.

Paul: Sounds like Phyllis needs a muzzle.

Chris: Yeah, or an elephant tranquilizer. Any advice I give her goes in one ear and out the other.

Paul: Well, I take it you've had other clients like that, people that are out of control and uncooperative.

Chris: Whose side are you on? Get your feet off my desk.

Paul: Oh, wow. I guess the thrill of sharing your office with me is over, huh?

Chris: I can't very well have you work out in the hallway.

Paul: Well, then why don't you have your little buddy Michael Baldwin have his people finish my office?

Chris: Nag, nag, nag, nag.

Paul: Preferably in this lifetime.

Chris: Why are you looking at me like that?

Paul: You know why you're in such a rotten mood?

Chris: Oh, well, I'm sure you're gonna tell me.

Paul: I am gonna tell you. Deep down you know you can't abandon Phyllis in her time of need. Your conscience is arguing with your anger, and because you're such a nice goody-two-shoes, I know what you're gonna do.


Neil: Thought I'd find you here. Mind if I sit down?

Malcolm: Suit yourself.

Neil: So Drucilla tells me that you're leaving town. Is that true?

Malcolm: Yeah, that's the plan.

Neil: So where are you going?

Malcolm: I haven't really figured that one out yet.

Neil: You just know you don't wanna be here, huh?

Malcolm: Yep.

Neil: I'm not sure I understand you. You just told me that one of the main reasons you got a job here was because Lily hangs out here and you wanna spend more time with her. What happened to that?

Malcolm: I changed my mind.

Neil: That's all there is to it?

Malcolm: That's it.

Neil: Malcolm, I'm not feeling this, man. You come over to my house, you enjoy yourself at dinner, everything was fine when I left you and Dru at the apartment. I go out for ice cream, I come back, and I find out you're taking off. Is it something Dru said? Is she the reason you're leaving?


Sharon: Okay, and our top new colors for spring of '05 are... no, no, no, no. Our dazzling new... that's not right either. Gosh, there has to be a way to make this sound... our dazzling new... our dazzling new colors...

Nick: You, uh, talking to yourself?

Sharon: Hi, gang. What are you guys doing here?

Cassie: We came by to pick you up.

Sharon: Pick me up?

Noah: We're gonna go see Victor. He's back.

Sharon: He is?

Cassie: So what do you say, Mom? Ready to call it a night?

Sharon: Uh, sweetie, I canít. I mean, well, not yet. I just have a lot of polishing left to do on this presentation for tomorrow, and it's my first one as Jabot's new spokesperson, so I want it to be perfect.

Cassie: But can't you finish it at home?

Sharon: Uh, Cassie, why don't you take Noah down to the boardroom? It's the last door at the end of the hall. The view of the city is amazing at night, and then maybe by the time you get back, I'll be done.

Cassie: Okay. Come on, Noah.

Sharon: I'm sorry. I hate to disappoint them.

Nick: That's okay. There will be other nights. Besides, I doubt you'll be working here much longer anyway.


(Voices approaching)

Abby: Mommy! Mommy!

Ashley: Hey, you, come here. Oh, I missed you so much.

Abby: I missed you, too, Mommy.

Ashley: Yeah?

Abby: Look, I drew this for you. It's a picture of you and me together.

Ashley: Oh, it's beautiful. I love it. I made one for Daddy, too, but he left his in the car.

Ashley: Oh, I bet his is beautiful, too.

Abby: So do you like it?

Ashley: Are you kidding? I love it. Guess what. I got something for you, too. Come here. For when you come spend the night with me. Open it up.

Ashley: (Laughs) (gasps) oh!

Abby: Cool. New P.J.s.

Brad: Whoa. Pretty neat, huh?

Ashley: Thanks so much for bringing her.

Brad: No problem.

Abby: Hey, Mama, can I stay here tonight?

Ashley: I don't know. Does Daddy have plans for you tonight?

Brad: Mmm... okay, you can stay tonight.

Ashley: Yay! Come here. Guess what. We're gonna have so much fun. I want you to get ready for bed. Put your new jammies on, okay? Remember where my old room is?

Abby: Mm-hmm.

Ashley: I wanna see these on you. But you hurry right back down, okay, 'cause I miss you. We're gonna pop popcorn and watch videos and stuff.

Abby: Yeah. (Hums)


Nikki: Well, I thought I'd find you with a drink in your hand. Thank you for letting Bobby and Brittany stay.

Victor: Are you surprised I didn't throw them out into the cold dark night?

Nikki: There was a time when you would have done just that.

Victor: And don't think for one moment that I still might not do that. What the hell prompted you to invite these people to stay in our house, for heaven sake?

Nikki: They have no other place to stay.

Victor: What do you care? Are they bosom buddies of ours? What do you care, for heaven sake? They're not some orphans off the street. Did you do this because you're angry with me because I asked you that I needed some time off and wanted to think things through?

Nikki: You know, I don't think you have any idea the affect you have on people, how much pain you cause when you leave this family, when you leave me. You just don't have a clue what that does.

Victor: For your information, I do have a clue. That's why I came back home.


Chris: I hate to admit it, but you're right. I'm not used to bailing on people who are counting on me.

Paul: Even when they've driven you crazy for years.

Chris: It's more than that. Phyllis has to realize that actions have consequences.

Paul: Do all of your clients do exactly what you tell them to do?

Chris: Not always, but at least they're not this self-destructive. I should have my head examined for taking on this case.

Paul: Look, you only took the case because her son begged you, remember?

Chris: I just don't know how to represent someone I can't stand.

Paul: You suck it up and smile.

Chris: You have more confidence in me than I do.

Paul: Here, let me illustrate. Do you think Damon and Phyllis are innocent?

Chris: Yes, I do. Okay, okay, okay, so don't say it. I know. I can't abandon her as much as I would like to.

Paul: That's my girl.

Chris: Thank you. Thank you so much. I was doing fine before you held my feet to the fire.

Paul: You know what? I was just pointing out the obvious.


Phyllis: Hey, what's, uh, what's going on, officer?

Officer: You were swerving over the center line, mister, more than once.

Phyllis: I ain't from these parts. Sorry.

Officer: May I see your driver's license, please?

Phyllis: Yeah, sure. You know, I thought I had it in here.

Officer: Have you been drinking?

Phyllis: A couple of beers.

Officer: Maybe you better step outside the car.

Phyllis: Wait a minute. Officer, come here, come here, come here. Come on, come on. Uh, why don't you just let me drive to my--my house? I'll get my wallet. It'll take just a minute.

Officer: A couple of beers, huh?

Phyllis: A couple of beers. Why don't we just forget about this?

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

Phyllis: What's the charge?

Officer: D.U.I. Now step outside the car and put your hands on the roof of the vehicle.


Victor: Just think for one moment what I've been through the last year-- first meeting ever with my father, then my daughter leaves the house. God knows where she is now. It still breaks my heart. And then my son turns me into the feds. I end up being convicted of a felony. To be honest with you, I'm still not over that. One of the most painful moments of my life, I think. And as if that weren't enough, I find out that Ashley Abbott has given birth to my child. Because I felt I lost everything, I became very fond of that child... only to find out that she has rejected me because of some stupid accident. So now you know why I feel lost and alone. I had to get the hell out of here to be by myself to find some answers.

Nikki: And did you?

Victor: Only to find out that I couldn't get any answers away from here. I had to be with you.

Nikki: Victor... do you realize that all of these things that have affected you so profoundly have also affected me? Or has that not occurred to you?

Victor: Sure it has occurred to me. That's why I came back home, because I realized that I canít... can't be without you.

Nikki: My God. Do you know how long I have waited to hear you say that, how often I have thought the same thing about us? I would like nothing better than for us to be so close that I don't know where you end or I begin. We used to be like that. But now... I just can't afford to risk my heart with you because I don't know where it's gonna lead me.


Malcolm: Neil, leaving is my decision. I don't belong here anymore. Now I came back, I got to see at least some of the people I needed to see, and now I gotta go. It's as simple as that.

Neil: Simple as that, huh?

Malcolm: Why are you grilling me, Neil?

Neil: Because I've known you your whole life. I know when you're sidestepping, when you're lying. Why don't you tell me what's really going on?


Ashley: I really appreciate you letting Abby stay.

Brad: Well, it's probably best for tonight anyway. I have to go back to the office. I'll be working late helping Sharon get ready for her presentation tomorrow.

Ashley: So how's our new spokesperson doing?

Brad: Well, let's put it this way-- I think with Sharon onboard, Jabot's fortunes may be looking up.

Ashley: Couldn't get any worse.

Brad: What do you mean?

Ashley: I don't wanna get into it tonight, Brad. Just know we have to talk about it first thing in the morning.

Brad: Are you sure it can wait?

Ashley: Yeah. I want my focus tonight to be on Abby. This visit couldn't have come at a better time. I was missing her so much. Having her here lifts my spirits more than you'll know.

Abby: Here I come.

Ashley: Come here, you. Let me see, let me see.

Brad: Whoa. Look at that.

Ashley: Hey, you look beautiful. Come here.

Brad: Did you thank Mommy for that beautiful robe and pajamas?

Abby: Thank you, Mommy.

Ashley: Boy, oh, boy, you're heavy, and you're also welcome.

Brad: I'm gonna go back to the office, honey. You have a good night, okay?

Abby: Bye, Daddy.

Brad: I love you.

Abby: I love you, too.

Brad: I'll see you tomorrow. Sleep tight.

Abby: Don't let the bedbugs bite.

Ashley: Bye. Thanks again. Okay, what's it gonna be, a video first or popcorn first?

Abby: Popcorn.

Ashley: Let's go do it. Butter or no butter?

Abby: No butter and cheese popcorn.


Sharon: Nick, I thought you were behind me 100%.

Nick: I am.

Sharon: Well, then why would you say I might not be working at Jabot much longer?

Nick: Because you should come work at Newman Enterprises. Now that I'm C.E.O., I can hire you no problem.

Sharon: Well, I already have a job.

Nick: I know, but think about it-- you and me working in the same building. We can drive in together, have lunch.

Sharon: Well, honey, honey, they really need me here. I mean, my job as spokesperson is very important.

Nick: I'm sure it is, but we could also use you at Newman Enterprises. You remember? That was the original plan. You were gonna be the new face of our cosmetics division.

Sharon: Yeah, but, uh, it didn't work out that way and now I'm here, and, you know, I have to say I like it here. I mean, the people are great and the work is challenging and its fun.

Nick: You can have all that and more at Newman. Sharon, this is our family business.

Sharon: Well, I'll have to think about it.

Nick: Okay. Well, the, um... the offer still stands. You know that.

Sharon: Of course, of course, honey. Um, but right now I have got to get to work on this presentation because we really need this to go well tomorrow.


Officer #2: Did you pat him down?

Officer: Too drunk. He stinks to high heaven. Only thing we gotta worry about with this guy is if he snores too loud when he passes out.

Officer #2: Inside.

Phyllis: Hey. I want my lawyer.

Officer: You'll see the judge in the morning. Just shut up and go to sleep.

Phyllis: All right. Oh, damn, Dominicís not here. What am I gonna do now?

Man: Say something, mister?

Man #2: Maybe the dude has got some cash on him.

Man: Yeah. Cop said he never got frisked.

Man #2: Let's find out.

Phyllis: Oh, I think I'm gonna hurl.

Man: Hold it, pal. Take it easy.

Man #2: You know, you better lie down.

Phyllis: (Gagging)

Dominic: Oh, man, you're not gonna put me in no holding cell with a bunch of drunks, are you?

Officer #2: This ain't a 5-star hotel, sport. You're gonna stay here until a space in the county jail opens up for you.

Malcolm: You can think whatever the hell you want. Now I told you why I'm leaving. If you wanna believe there's another reason, knock yourself out. I just think it's better for everyone if I'm not here. Now why you're trying so hard to act like you care, I don't know. You know, you should be happy. I'm gonna be out of your life and away from your family. So why don't you get up and walk away?

Neil: I'm not walking away 'cause you're part of my family.

Malcolm: Oh, give it a rest already.

Neil: I know we have some issues to work out. They're not gonna happen overnight, but if you walk away, it'll never happen. Don't you understand, man? I thought you were dead. I thought I was never gonna see you again, and now you're back. I don't care what you say, man. We are brothers, we are blood, we are family. If there's one thing that I've learned in this life, it's not about the money, the power, the success that you acquire. It's about the love, man, the love that you have for your family.

Malcolm: I'm leaving, Neil. That's what I have to do.


Nick: So where is Brad anyway? Isn't this, uh, his office?

Sharon: Yeah. He just went to drop Abby off with Ashley. He'll be back.

Nick: You guys are really putting in the hours, huh?

Sharon: Well, tonight, but it'll be worth it because tomorrow is gonna be a huge day for us.

Cassie: Oh, my gosh. Wow. You were so right. You could see the lights on all the Christmas trees up Chestnut Street.

Sharon: I thought you might like it. But you know what? It's getting late. You two should get home and finish your homework.

Noah: But I've already done my homework.

Cassie: Yeah, and I only have a few math problems to go over.

Sharon: Well, still, it is a school night and I don't want you kids getting to bed late.

Noah: We wonít. Good night, Mommy.

Shan: Good night, sweet pea.

Cassie: Good night, Mom.

Sharon: Good night.

Cassie: Come on, noah.

Nick: So think about it. On nights like this when you have to work late, how great it'll be when we're working together. I can't wait to have you over at newman. I'll see you at home.


Victor: You never said any of this to me before.

Nikki: I never could have said any of it. I was too much in love with you, just too convinced that it could just be you and me together as one.

Victor: And now?

Nikki: I guess I'm older and wiser now. I didn't realize until now that this trip of yours, your quest for yourself, it really was the last straw, Victor.

Victor: So what are you saying, that you're no longer in love with me?

Nikki: No, I would not say that. I will always love you. It's just that love is a part of me now. It's not all consuming like it used to be. It doesn't define me.

Victor: So you've changed.

Nikki: I guess so. I didn't realize that I had. Maybe I changed more than I even wanted to.

Victor: So I guess what you're saying is that you no longer have any room for me in your life.


Paul: Come on, Chris. You know you're gonna give in.

Chris: You're right. Only one problem-- I haven't a clue how to get Phyllis off.

Paul: Well, you've come to the right guy. This person who is accusing Phyllis has Weber completely snowed?

Chris: He has a very believable story. Phyllis and Damonís version of events reads like a sci-fi novel.

Paul: Well, the proof has to be out there somewhere.

Chris: Well, you better start looking, Mr. Private eye, 'cause I don't have a clue where to find it.

Paul: What exactly is Phyllis' story?

Chris: She said she went to Georgia to make a deal with Dominic Hughes, the man that shot--

Paul: Yeah, you told me that much. She was supposed to keep Damon in Genoa City and not let him testify at hughes' parole hearing.

Chris: Right, in exchange for Hughes' promise that if he ever got released, he would stay as far away from Damon as possible.

Paul: Which he didnít.

Chris: No. His scenario is that Phyllis lured him here so that Damon could kill him and seek revenge.

Paul: And seeing how it all went down, that's why Weber is buying Hughes' version?

Chris: Although I think he has his own agenda. He wants to wrap this whole thing up without ever going to court.

Paul: Well, I can see why. Hank's had enough bad press where Phyllis Abbott is concerned to last him a lifetime.

Chris: I think he's afraid of history repeating itself if he doesn't get a confession.

Paul: So that's why he wants this charge of conspiracy to stick. So is there any hard evidence?

Chris: Records of a cell phone call that Phyllis made to Damon right before the motel confrontation, which Phyllis conveniently forgot to mention. That plus porter's known hatred of Hughes, not to mention he shows up to the motel with a sword. Come on, you tell me. Could any two people look more guilty?

Paul: A sword?


Daniel: All right, here we go. Decaf for you and regular for me. Are you even supposed to be drinking coffee yet?

Damon: Oh, there's, uh, zero tolerance in the hospital, but I'm a free man.

Daniel: Just don't tell my mom about this, all right? She wanted me to get you straight home. So what's going on with her anyway?

Damon: I don't know. I tried to get her to open up to me, but she wouldnít. If there's one thing I learned about your mother, she doesn't respond well to pressure. She gets it in her head to do something--

Daniel: I know, I know, it's like trying to stop a freight train. Let's hope she doesn't do anything stupid.

Damon: I'm sure she'll be fine, Daniel. She's a tough woman.

Daniel: Yeah, who doesn't always think before she acts? She could be getting herself in a whole lot of trouble.

Malcolm: Hey, what's up, daniel?

Daniel: Malcolm, hey, what's going on?

Malcolm: See you're back on the streets.

Damon: Just released.

Daniel: My mom wanted me to get him home and settled in.

Malcolm: Hmm. Where is your mom?

Daniel: I wish I knew.

Malcolm: You got no idea?

Damon: No.

Malcolm: Something going on with her?

Damon: No.

Daniel: Yes.

Malcolm: This wouldn't have anything to do with your messy situation, would it?

Damon: I don't see how that's any of your business.

Malcolm: Phyllis is my friend. That makes it my business.

Damon: Not really, but if Phyllis would like you to know the details of her life, I'm sure she'll tell you. Meanwhile, I ain't gonna, so leave us alone. You're beginning to make a real nuisance of yourself.


Dominic: Jeez, man. What the hell have you been drinking, rubbing alcohol?

Phyllis: Scotch.

Dominic: I could go for a shot of that right now.

Phyllis: What are you in for?

Dominic: What's it to you?

Phyllis: I'm here-- I was at a bar, this guy wanted to mix it up with me, cracked a bottle over my head.

Dominic: Yeah, smells like it.

Phyllis: He ain't gonna be walking for long, let me tell ya. I kicked him in the family jewels. He went down like a bag of cement.

Dominic: You know, that's real interesting. What the hell does it look like, I'm writing a book?

Phyllis: Ain't the first time I've been here. I was in here for jacking a Ferrari. Before that, knocking off a jewelry store. I've been in and out of here since I was a young one.

Dominic: You know, compared to what I did, you're talking kid stuff.

Phyllis: I haven't met a con that didn't talk big.

Dominic: You callin' me a liar?

Phyllis: No, I ain't calling you anything. What'd you do, snatch a purse from a little old lady?

Dominic: Watch your mouth, chump! I did hard time in Georgia. Trust me, that's one place you don't want to be locked up.

Phyllis: Georgia, huh?

Dominic: Yeah, Georgia. And now I'm going back.

Phyllis: You mess up your parole?

Dominic: You know what? You ask a lot of questions, boy.

Phyllis: Nothing to do here but ask questions. What are you going back for? Why are they sending you back?

Dominic: 'Cause certain people couldn't let go of ancient history, and I wasn't about to let 'em push me around.

Phyllis: I don't understand.

Dominic: I served my time. Nobody has a right to tell me I deserve to be punished more.

Phyllis: Pretty intense.

Dominic: You have no idea, man. No idea at all.


Sharon: I added that bit about the spring rollout.

Brad: Mm-hmm. Yeah, I see you made a few other changes as well.

Sharon: Well, I thought I could tighten up the presentation as a whole and say things with more impact.

Brad: I would say you've done that.

Sharon: So there's nothing else you want me to do?

Brad: No, there isnít. I wouldn't change a thing.

Sharon: You mean it?

Brad: Yes, I mean it. You should be very pleased with what you've done today, Sharon. I know I am.

Sharon: Really?

Brad: Yes, that's top-notch work. You should be very proud of yourself. Listen, we have people here with a lot more experience than you that would have had trouble putting together a presentation like that so quickly.

Sharon: Wow. To hear you say that, I almost don't believe it.

Brad: Well, it's the truth.

Sharon: I guess I'm just a little shocked.

Brad: You know, uh, to be honest with you, I'm a little bit shocked myself. Nobody expected you to come in here and step up to the plate the way you have. You have a knack for meeting people, for publicity, for advertising, which is great, because we needed somebody who could come in and hit the ground running.

Sharon: What a nice thing to say, and it's especially nice coming from you. Your approval means a lot to me, Brad.

Brad: Well, as I said, you're becoming a real asset.

Sharon: Thank you.

Brad: You're welcome. All right, why don't you get home, get some rest? We're gonna need you at your best tomorrow.

Sharon: Okay, um, I guess I'll see you in the morning.

Brad: Okay. Drive carefully.


Nikki: I don't know what I mean. I think I'm grieving for what might have been.

Victor: One only grieves when one regrets the loss of someone.

Nikki: Victor, ours was the greatest love story ever.

Victor: What do you mean "was"? You think it's over?

Nikki: I don't know. I don't know what's going to happen. I don't think either of us does.

Victor: Are you telling me that you want me to walk away? Because if that's the case, I'm out of here.

Nikki: I'm telling you to do what you feel you must do, because that's what I'm gonna do.

Victor: When I was away doing my soul-searching, I never once thought of leaving you, not once.

Noah: Daddy said you were home. I missed you.

Victor: Hey, my boy! Oh, so nice to see you.

Noah: Good to see you, too.

Victor: Yeah, my goodness. Yeah, you been playing a lot of sports?

Noah: I've been playing some ice hockey.

Victor: Yeah, you have? How's Cassie?

Noah: Good.

Victor: Yeah?


Chris: I had hoped that there would be tapes or videos made of prisoner-visitor conversations, but according to Weber, no such luck.

Paul: Really, that's what the prison officials told him?

Chris: Which means I don't have one shred of evidence to support Phyllis' story. I'm telling you, I have such a bad feeling about this.

Paul: You know what? I don't think you have to panic yet. It's just a really good thing you have me on board.

Chris: Seriously, you think you can help?

Paul: Well, it's the least can do. I mean, besides, it will get me out of your office for awhile. You'll like that.

Chris: Oh, really?

Paul: Well, it's just a hunch. No guarantees. And I'm gonna need a little time.

Chris: If you can pull a rabbit out of your hat on this one, you will have two overjoyed clients, not to mention a grateful attorney.

Paul: How grateful?

Chris: Very grateful.


Damon: What you doing?

Malcolm: I'm sitting right here until somebody gives me some details. That's what I'm doing.

Damon: There are no details. The case is still open.

Malcolm: So the police actually think Phyllis tried to help you whack some guy.

Damon: Yeah, they do, but the truth is, he was about to shoot her. If I hadn't acted, she'd be dead right now.

Malcolm: My hero.

Damon: I'm done.

Daniel: Whoa, whoa, whoa, Damon, where are you going?

Damon: No, you were right. We should have gone straight home. I'm tired of talking to this clown.

Malcolm: Daniel, when you do see your mother, you tell her I want to talk to her, all right?

Daniel: Yeah, I will.


Phyllis: So are you sweating going back to prison?

Dominic: Not anymore, now that I know I'm gonna have company.

Phyllis: What do you mean?

Dominic: This dude and his chick tried to waste me. I got the scars to prove it.

Phyllis: They been arrested?

Dominic: They will. They made a nasty mistake trying to take on Dominic Hughes. Now they're gonna pay.

Phyllis: You sound pretty sure of yourself.

Dominic: I am. I got the cops eating out of my hands.

Phyllis: How did you do that?

Officer: The sergeant told me to bring you clowns some water. You can either drink it or wash your feet. What's with you, rummy? You were so wasted when I hauled you in here, you could barely put two words together. Now you're chirping like a bird. You ain't on speed or something, are you?


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

J.T.: I need to find Mac, and it needs to be now.

John: I have never hated him as I do right now, never!

Ashley: What do I do, Dad? How do I save this company?

Dominic: Hey, you're pretty skinny for an ex-con.
