Neil: It's just a little something to get me through the next few hours, that's all.
Olivia: And after that?
Neil: And after that, no more drinking. I promise. Ok nice.
Neil: Thanks. You do, too. I'm wearing, uh... Dru's favorite cologne, you know? I'm--I'm getting a little worried, though. I ordered some daffodils, and they're not here yet.
Olivia: Don't worry. They'll be here. You didn't call that long ago.
Neil: Yeah, I know, but I want 'em here. Daffodils...
Neil: You know, the way they look and the way they smell, and... I just want today to be absolutely... (sighs) perfect.
Phyllis: Hey, speed demon! Where you going?
Daniel: Hey, sorry. I'm focused, tryin' to get stuff done.
Phyllis: Right, right.
Daniel: Picking up the coffee that Kevin donated for the prayer service.
Phyllis: How are Lily and Devon?
Daniel: Well, Lily's been running around at top speed, and Devon--he's been cooking and baking since dawn.
Phyllis: Wow. I guess they're trying to keep their minds organized and--and occupied, right?
Daniel: Yeah. I don't think either one of them wants to admit they may never see Dru again.
Phyllis: Listen, if I could change anything, you know--
Daniel: Ma, it's not your fault.
Phyllis: I know, but I just wish I could do something and--
Daniel: I know. I know. Me, too.
Daniel: I gotta get out of here, 'cause I gotta go meet Lily and Devon at the photo shop.
Phyllis: Okay. Yeah, yeah, yeah. You go. You go, and if you need me for anything, please just call. You know, I'm--I'm here.
Daniel: I will. I will.
Nick: Hey, Daniel.
Daniel: How you doing?
Nick: Good. He's in a hurry.
Phyllis: Yeah. He's picking up the coffee for the service at Indigo. (Bangs table)
Nick: Is everything all right?
Phyllis: (Whispers) no. I feel terrible for what happened. Nick, I mean, I--
Nick: You're just gonna enjoy this cup of coffee and stop feeling guilty about things you can't control. Can you do that for me?
Phyllis: (Normal voice) I try.
Kay: Uh, Jill, you are going to Dru's service, not some awards banquet.
Jill: (Groans softly)
Kay: I had hoped that we could ride over together.
Jill: You're going?
Kay: Yes, of course. Why shouldn't I?
Jill: Because, Mother, the press will be hovering outside of Indigo.
Kay: What's your point?
Jill: This is supposed to be a somber service, not a paparazzi fest.
Kay: Well, I doubt my brief walk from the car will have any effect whatsoever on the guests waiting inside.
Jill: Nevertheless, Mother, I think it would be wiser if you laid low until all of this blows over.
Kay: Oh, don't worry. I will keep my distance. Or if you prefer, you can pretend I don't even exist.
Brad: Hey, Sharon, it's Brad.
Brad: I just wanted to call and let you know that I will be attending the service for Dru.
Sharon: Okay. Uh, I'll see you there.
Brad: You hangin' in?
Sharon: Yeah, uh, for now. I'm supposed to say something. I-I don't know if I can.
Brad: Well, just, uh, picture me sitting in my underwear, and you'll be fine. It'll be a breeze.
Sharon: (Chuckles) okay, now you can't come, because everyone's gonna be wondering why I'm laughing.
Brad: (Chuckles) Dru would get a kick out of it. You'll do great. (Knock on door)
Sharon: Uh, someone's at the door. I have to go. Bye. (Telephone beeps)
Jack: Hi there.
Sharon: I thought the plan was I'd meet you at Indigo.
Jack: Change of plans. I just hated the idea of you going there alone.
(Knock on door)
Victor: Oh. Didn't expect to see you back so soon. Thought you'd be in Madison longer.
Nikki: Well, I don't know why that's a surprise. I'm here for Drucilla's prayer service.
Victor: Did Victoria come with you?
Nikki: No. Not up to traveling.
Victor: I've missed you.
Nikki: Yeah, it was good to get away.
Victor: What do you mean?
Nikki: I'm only here for Neil and his family.
Sharon: I know I had some tissues here somewhere. Oh.
Jack: Ticket stubs?
Sharon: Yeah, it's, um... from a tearjerker I saw one night with Dru.
Jack: You and Dru, roommates--a pretty dynamic duo.
Sharon: Yeah. She was just... so easy to talk to. She got me, you know?
Jack: Yeah. You two clicked.
Sharon: Sometimes I sit here, and I-I close my eyes, and I... I imagine her here... sitting there in her funny fuzzy slippers she had and reading one of her magazines, playing video games with Noah.
Jack: I did that a lot when my dad passed away. You know, the good news is you can close your eyes anytime you want and remember Dru just the way you want to. It's those memories that'll get you through this, you know.
Nick: You gotta stop beating yourself up.
Phyllis: Yeah. The irony is not lost on me. I'm tormented over a woman I hated.
Nick: That's why you feel guilty.
Phyllis: Yeah, right. I mean, we brought out the worst in each other. I mean, she brought out the worst in me, for sure. It's crazy. We were always, like, trying to screw each other up. You know that--that whole thing with the---with the office? We--we refused to share an office.
Nick: Yeah, I forgot about that.
Phyllis: Yeah, and we were stealing each other's files. We were locking each other out. Neil fired us. We were freaks.
Nick: Dru was as much to blame as you were.
Phyllis: I antagonized her, and I know that. Don't tell anybody I said that. I mean, how many times did I tell you I never wanted to see that woman ever again? I never wanted to see her face ever again, and I would do anything to see her walk through that door.
Neil: I had a long talk with Malcolm.
Olivia: Is he coming?
Neil: I told him it wasn't necessary.
Olivia: You sure you don't need him?
Neil: I asked him to say a prayer for Dru.
Neil: Hey, guys.
Lily: Wait until you see all the food Devon cooked. He took Mamie's recipes and went to town.
Neil: Oh, that's really, really nice, Devon. Thank you.
Lily: So is everything ready to go? What else can we do, Aunt Liv?
Colleen: Well, it looks like everything's mostly set up.
Olivia: Everything is set up, but thanks.
Devon: I'm gonna go put the, uh, some of the food in the kitchen.
Lily: Yeah, I'll help you.
Colleen: Um, I'll go with you guys. Got it?
Lily: Uh, here. Help me out.
Colleen: Okay, got it. (Laughs)
Neil: Uh, I need to call about those... daffodils. I'll be right back.
Olivia: Well, I guess I'm not the only one that knows that Neil's drinking again.
Daniel: Nobody's supposed to know.
Olivia: They don't. Just us.
Daniel: You know, the only reason I agreed not to tell Lily is 'cause she's going through enough right now.
Olivia: He promised me that he'd stop after the service.
Daniel: You believe him?
Olivia: I want to.
Daniel: Yeah, so do I.
Kay: The place looks lovely.
Neil: Thanks. Thank you. Appreciate that.
Kay: Neil, we've, um, we've been friends for many, many years. Ah, do you think I could give you a little advice?
Neil: Yeah, sure. What is it?
Kay: As one alcoholic to another, I... I know how easy it is to fall back on old habits.
Neil: Yeah, well, I mean, you don't have to worry about me. I, um, there are a lot of people I care about supporting me.
Neil: Hey, Nikki. Um...
Neil: I thought you were gonna be gone in Madison for...
Neil: For a few more days.
Nikki: I know. I wanted to be here.
Neil: Thank you. Yeah, planning this vigil, it's, uh...
Neil: Well, yeah. I'm--I'm still holding out hope that--that my wife is gonna be found.
Victor: Neil, can I talk to you a minute?
Neil: Sure, Victor.
Nikki: I thought I would find him in worse shape.
Kay: He's not as well as he pretends.
Lily: These flowers look amazing, don't they?
Colleen: Mm-hmm. Looks like Dru's kind of party.
Devon: I hope that everybody's hungry, or else we're gonna be eating all that food for the next year and a half.
Lily: You know, we couldn't have picked a better place to have this than at Indigo.
Devon: Yeah. This place, uh, it definitely has Dru's touch. It's like a home away from home.
Lily: Yeah. Hope I chose the right pictures of Mom.
Daniel: Of course you did.
Jill: (Sighs) you know, some people are just born to be models, and Drucilla was one of them.
Jack: Her energy just popped off the page. You couldn't take your eyes off her.
Jill: I know. Jabot was lucky to have her.
Jack: I keep remembering when she lived in the guest room all those years ago.
Jack: Who'd have guessed back then she'd be the toast of Paris and one day a major cosmetics executive?
Olivia: Hey. It's so good to see you.
Brad: You, too. I wish it was under different circumstances.
Olivia: It just doesn't seem real. I mean, I keep expecting that Dru's gonna come busting in here saying it'd take more than a fall to stop her from coming to a get-together in her honor.
Brad: Is your son here?
Olivia: No. I-I thought it was best that he stay in school.
Brad: Is anyone from your family coming?
Olivia: Well, Neil has been so adamant that this is not a memorial service that he told Aunt Mamie and my folks to stay home and pray for her safe return.
Lily: I waited to put these out. I wanted you to see them first.
Lily: Dad, you okay?
Neil: I remember that moment. I-I do. Your mom and I, we both cracked up.
Neil: I knew right then and there that you were your mother's daughter.
Devon: I didn't really expect to see Lily and Neil smiling too much today.
Daniel: Yeah, tell me about it. You know, when reality sets in and Lily finally crashes...
Devon: It's okay. It's all right. I know that you probably think my, uh, Dad is kidding himself, expecting a miracle.
Daniel: No, they can happen.
Devon: Mm-hmm. I don't think this time. I've been living in the real world for too long, and, uh, people hardly ever get happy endings.
Brad: Hey, Sweetheart. Thought I would find you with Lily.
Colleen: She's, um, with her dad looking at pictures.
Brad: Uh-huh. Well, I'm sure she appreciates you being here.
Colleen: It just never feels like enough. I mean, everything I say comes out wrong, and--
Brad: I know. I know. Sometimes it's hard to know the right thing to say in a situation like this.
Colleen: (Sighs) I just want her to know that she's not alone.
Brad: She knows that.
Colleen: Dad, the thought of losing you or Mom--
Brad: Oh, come on. You're not gonna lose us.
Colleen: Yeah, well, that's what Lily thought, too. I mean, whatever happens, I will never take you guys for granted.
Sharon: Nikki, glad you're here.
Nikki: Well, I wouldn't be anywhere else.
Jack: Our company lost one hell of a woman.
Nikki: I heard we almost lost you, too.
Sharon: Yeah, um, I was very lucky. I wish I could say the same thing for Dru.
Victor: Jack, I hope you're taking good care of her.
Jack: Every moment of every day.
Sharon: I don't know how I'd ever get through this without him.
Nick: Good idea. Working always helps take your mind off the serious stuff.
Phyllis: This is the serious stuff.
Nick: What do you mean?
Phyllis: I am trying to write good things about Dru, trying to write a eulogy.
Nick: You've made a lot of progress.
Nick: But it's a good idea, you know, get it all out.
Phyllis: Yeah, I guess I owe it to her to say nice things.
Nick: So have you changed your mind about the service? Are you gonna go?
Olivia: Dru... my little sister. There probably isn't enough time for me to explain what a wonderfully complicated woman she was. When my parents told me that I was getting a baby sister, I didn't know what to expect... and maybe that's for the best, because she was a loud, boisterous bundle of contradictions. But she only changed our lives for the better. And when she found her voice and learned how to use it, we couldn't stop her from talking. I was the studious and conservative sister, and she was the rebellious one. She had such a-a huge heart. And when my life needed saving... it was my little sister who unselfishly donated her bone marrow so that I could live.
Sharon: She was loyal... and loving and fierce, from the tip of her designer shoes to the top of her fabulous, one-of-a-kind hats. She was the kind of friend who you could call in the middle of the night and cry with over a cup of coffee. No matter what my problem was, she--she always knew how to make me laugh. And she was honest. She was brutally honest. She always put it to me straight, you know? I'm a better person for it. She is the kind of friend that everyone hopes to have in their life, and I was lucky enough to have her in mine... for years. There's no one else like her.
Devon: It's hard to believe that I only met Drucilla Winters three years ago... and it's even harder to believe that she's been my mother for less than that. I know that three years probably doesn't sound like a long time to everybody here, but for me, that was the beginning of my life. Before Dru, I had given up hope for myself... uh, for a normal life. And then she came and completely changed the direction I was going. She was the very first person... ever... who believed in me, and she was the first person who forced me to believe in myself. And she was very tough... very tough. But she never stopped pushing me to be better. The day that she and Neil adopted me was the... absolute greatest day of my life. Drucilla was--she is-- the greatest mother that I could ever ask for, and I will... never forget her for the rest of my life.
Lily: I'm not really sure that there are words to adequately describe my mom. She taught me basically everything that I know. She always told me that no matter where you come from, you can do whatever you want. And she was a model, a dancer, an executive. My mom--she... did it all. But she always did it with grace and determination. And if I can be half as successful and kind and loving as my mom, then I would be happy. And you know, you all know her, so you know that trying to sum her up is basically impossible. (Sniffles) and we had our differences, like when she would tell me to clean my room or try and give me advice about guys. We didn't always agree, but, um, we always found a way to compromise. And she always knew what to say to me. (Sniffles) and she always put me first... and whatever she's done in her life... to me, her biggest accomplishment was being the best mom that anyone could ask for. God, please keep her safe. (Sniffling)
Lily: I love you.
Neil: You know, we've been talking about Drucilla as if she's... as if she's dead, as if she's passed away, and I'm not gonna give up... on her, because she is out there somewhere. She is alive. She's alive for me. I want to thank all of you for coming here and sharing in this prayer service with my family. I want to thank you for supporting Devon and Lily, Olivia and me during this extremely difficult time. I want to remind you that... Dru--she loves you. She loves all of you. Um, Sharon, you're her best friend. And, Nikki, Victor, Kay... Jill, you-- she looks up to you. No one is more loyal, and no one is more passionate about life than Drucilla. And when I think about my wife... I think about how beautiful she is, how brash and sassy she is.
Neil: She's unforgettable. I'd, um, like to take a moment, if we could, to bow our heads and say a prayer to the Lord... to return her home to us safely. And if for any reason the Lord doesn't see it fit to have her return to us... may he welcome her into his loving arms peacefully.
Olivia: What you said about my sister... it was beautiful, and it meant a lot.
Neil: I don't think words can sum up how I feel about her.
Olivia: I know how hard it was for you, getting through that.
Neil: I'm sure it wasn't easy for you, either.
Olivia: What you promised me before... (whispers) I hope you meant it.
Neil: Of course I meant it. Sparkling water.
Colleen: How long do you think Lily can hold it together?
Daniel: I don't know.
Colleen: What should we do?
Daniel: The only thing we can do-- just be there for her when she falls.
Sharon: You know, this whole incident with Drucilla has, um... it's really made me realize what's important.
Brad: Your speech was very touching. Dru would've loved it.
Sharon: Thanks. It was hard not to fall apart.
Brad: But then you looked at me and remembered.
Sharon: Well, I didn't laugh or cry.
Brad: Well, that's just the reaction I'm looking for when I'm sitting in my underwear.
Sharon: (Laughs) well... thank you. Thanks for being you. Thanks for being supportive.
Brad: Anytime. Dru would've been proud of you today.
Kay: Well, that was a very inspiring service. Do you know, that's exactly what I would like when I die.
Jill: Oh! That is so morbid. Please. I can't handle that right now.
Kay: Why should that upset you so? Especially after what I did to you.
Jill: Stop it!
Kay: Maybe there is a small part of you that is glad I'm still here? Perhaps there's hope for us yet.
Jill: Don't put words in my mouth.
Victor: Put that down for a minute, will you?
Nikki: (Sighs) what?
Victor: Dru's service reminded me of something.
Victor: That of all the things I've accomplished in my life... nothing means more to me than you and my children.
Nikki: Yeah, right. Family unity-- that is your theme these days.
Victor: Why are you so damn cold? You know, I was thinking about the day that you were in the hospital and you almost died, and you and I remarried, and how happy I was that I hadn't lost you. What's the matter with you now?
Nikki: Victor, I believe that you are sorry for the things you said, okay? But that doesn't mean I can forget that you said them. And it doesn't change the fact that you don't support my running for senate.
Victor: (Scoffs) (sighs) it always comes back to that, doesn't it?
Nikki: Do you know what it was like for me up in Madison, trying to run my campaign, and every single reporter in the state knows that my own husband is not behind me?
Victor: Then why the hell are you subjecting yourself to it? You have everything you need. What more do you want?
Nikki: Please try--
Victor: You're married to one of the wealthiest men in the world. You have beautiful children. What more do you want?!
Nikki: You don't get it! I want that senate seat!
Nikki: I will do anything I have to to get it. I just want it! You should understand that.
Victor: This is ridiculous. I wish you would reconsider, not just because of my vendetta with Jack Abbott.
Nikki: Look, if you're worried that I won't be home to fetch your slippers, I'm sure Zapato can be trained to do that.
Victor: Please don't flatter yourself. You never fetched my slippers in your life, for heaven's sake. Don't you realize? If you run for that senate seat, you're gonna subject your family and yourself to nothing but humiliation, embarrassment.
Nikki: Victor, the only thing you're worried about is that I will be an embarrassment to you.
Victor: If you're having difficulty with the media now, it's only gonna get worse.
Nikki: I'm having difficulties because you're backing Jack instead of your wife.
Victor: The press will have a field day with your past.
Nikki: Well, Jack has a few secrets, too. Why don't you worry about him?
Victor: This has nothing to do with Jack Abbott. You're my wife. I happen to love you. And the press will be vicious with you.
Nikki: You honestly don't think I have a chance, do you?
Victor: No, I don't.
Nikki: Nice to know you have so much faith in me.
Victor: This has nothing to do with not having faith in you. I want to protect you.
Nikki: I don't want you to protect me. That is what kills me. You are the man who overcame such great odds to become what you are. You had so many people tell you, "No, you can't do it." But that just pushed you to prove them wrong. Now you tell me that, "Oh, you better drop out of that race." You know what that tells me? You will never accept me as an equal. You will never accept me as a partner.
Victor: This has nothing to do with our relationship.
Nikki: It has everything to do with it! You will never accept that I have just as much of a right to succeed at what I choose as you do.
Jack: So can I get you anything? Uh, some tea? Something to drink?
Sharon: No, thank you. I'm--I'm fine.
Jack: You know, as sad as that was, I also found it uplifting.
Sharon: Did you?
Jack: Yeah, remembering what an amazing woman Dru was... the joy, the love she brought to Neil and those two kids.
Sharon: You know, uh, that marriage went through some tough times, but I think that Neil and Dru were in a better place than they'd ever been.
Jack: Some people are just meant to be together.
Neil: Hey, why don't you guys drive Liv to the airport? It'll give you more time to talk.
Lily: Um, why don't you and Devon go ahead? I'm gonna stay here and help Dad clean up, so...
Daniel: You sure?
Neil: Yeah, I'll take care of it later. Go with your aunt. You don't get to spend that much time with her.
Neil: Hey. Don't worry about me. I'll be okay. I'll be just fine.
Neil: Yeah. Bye.
Phyllis: I really need to do this?
Nick: Yeah, you do. I'll leave you alone.
Phyllis: No, no, no, no.
Phyllis: No. I--
Nick: Do--do your thing. I'll be back here if you need me. Right back here.
Phyllis: This is silly. (Sighs) (Clears throat) I... Nick thinks I need to do this for closure. I don't... need to... do this. Your friends are at Indigo, and--and, uh, they don't want me there, and I'm sure you don't want me here, but, you know-- who the hell am I talking to? (Slaps thigh)
Nick: (Mouths word)
Phyllis: Um... "I-I don't think that you knew how much I admired and respected your passion, intelligence and devotion to your kids. I don't--I..." (Sighs) Dru... you were selfish, manipulative, stubborn and a liar... (Voice breaks) and I think I am, too.
Phyllis: (Chuckles) and if you were standing in front of me right now, there is no way I would ever admit that. Maybe that's why we didn't get along. Maybe we had too much in common. (Sighs) we got along when we were in the elevator together. Of course, we were plastered on tequila. (Paper crumples)
Phyllis: Anyway... (Sighs) if, uh, we ever meet up again, um, I hope that we become friends. Or, if we ever meet up again, I hope we become friends.
Phyllis: You are loving this right now, aren't you?
Phyllis: You finally won.
Phyllis: I'm in so much trouble.
Phyllis: (Whispers) you have the last laugh. (Normal voice) you won.
[Neil remembering when he first met Dru]
Neil: Who are you?
Dru: I'm Drucilla Barber. I work here.
Neil: I've never seen you here before.
Dru: Well, I'm not surprised. You don't look where you're going. You don't look period.
Neil: All right, I'll help, but I only got a couple of minutes. Come on.
Dru: Oh, lucky me.
Neil: With this ring, I thee wed, and I pledge you my love until the end of my days. Drucilla Winters is the most extraordinary woman that I have ever met. And, Darling, I wish that you could see yourself through my eyes. Because when I look at you, I see the most beautiful person inside and out.
Dru: You know, you told me that you don't want me to change...
Dru: That you love me just the way I am.
Neil: I believe I also said how blessed I feel to have you in my life.
Dru: Yeah, you did, and now we're doing it right this time, Honey.
Dru: We're doing it right.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Kevin: I think we need to kick it up a notch.
Gloria: What are you thinking?
Daniel: Why don't you just sit down for a minute and relax?
Lily: I am relaxing by keeping busy.
Neil: Now either you can turn around and walk out of here, or you can stay inside and have a drink with me.
