Victor: It's a sad day when Jack Abbott is one of the few people that I can trust, and I'm turning to him rather than to my own family.

Michael: Well, perhaps you've been too convincing, pretending you and Jack are best buddies.

Victor: Right.

Michael: You know it won't last, Victor.

Victor: It will have to last until you find proof that Jack Abbott owns Jabot. And why haven't you found that proof yet?

Michael: It's not for lack of trying.

Victor: Then do me a favor and try harder. I want this charade to be over with.

Jack: Well, the trades are all over Jabot's new image change in Europe.

Ji Min: I'm very pleased with the reception we got, particularly in Lisbon and Milan.

Jack: Well, you should be. Congratulations on a great trip.

Ji Min: Listen, Jack, I want to keep this going. I want to capitalize on our success, incorporate a new line of products, hair care products.

Jack: Hair care?

Ji Min: Shampoos, conditioners, styling products, full U.S. rollout.

Jack: Ji Min, Jabot has explored a hair care line several times before.

Ji Min: And rejected it. I'm well aware of that. The R&D costs were too prohibitive.

Jack: They still are, particularly with our... with your company just back on its feet.

Ji Min: You're familiar with the House of Kim's Jasmine line? It's huge in Asia, has been for years. I want to take that brand under Jabot's umbrella for North American distribution.

Jack: It's not feasible.

Ji Min: Well, I mean, I know you're worried about domestic expenditures, but we'd continue to manufacture overseas--

Jack: And pass on to your customers a heavy premium for the import tariffs.

Ji Min: I'll instruct Jill to pursue a strategy that justifies a higher price.

Jack: Jill has her hands full being C.E.O.

Ji Min: She's capable of handling both her administrative duties and the Jasmine line.

Jack: Listen, I appreciate your optimism. What you're proposing is not for the good of the company.

Ji Min: Well--

Jack: Jabot is finally turning a profit. This is not a time to take risks.

Ji Min: Well, my numbers say otherwise. In fact--

Jack: What do you say we just drop this, okay?

Ji Min: The subject, sure. The project, no.

Jack: This is not a democracy, Ji Min. There will be no new line until I say so.

Kay: Well, look at you getting all glamorous. Who's it for? Oh, that's right. Ji Min is back from his trip.

Jill: Really? Is that today?

Kay: Well, he is coming home to good news. I understand Jabot's sales are up.

Jill: Yeah, they're skyrocketing. We're finally recovering.

Kay: Well, your dedication paid off.

Jill: And his. He's a far batter manager than Jack ever was.

Kay: Don't you think you're being just a bit biased?

Jill: I can't wait to congratulate him in person.

Kay: Congratulate him? Congratulate? Oh! That's what they're calling it these days, huh? Oh. Mmm.

Woman: Ms. Moore, I'm sorry. Your credit card's been declined.

Amber: No way.

Woman: The company asked that we cut it up, but...

Amber: Thanks. I'm gonna need it.

Woman: Do you want to put it on your account?

Amber: Um, uh, we-- we don't have an account. Um, would you mind just-- just leaving it? We'll pay with cash. Thanks.

Cane: You ready to go, Babe?

Amber: Um, yeah, Honey, would you mind paying? I left my credit card in my other purse. How much cash do you have on you?

Cane: I've got... got about 20 bucks.

Amber: That's not enough to cover it.

Cane: I'd go to the A.T.M., but...

Amber: You don't have an account.

Cane: I'll wait. You go.

Amber: (Quietly) I can't.

Cane: Why?

Amber: Because I'm down to my last 15 bucks.

Cane: (Whispers) Amber, you just got paid.

Amber: Yeah, but it all went towards bills.

Cane: Are you telling me we're broke?

Amber: That is what I'm saying.

Kevin: Horoscope that bad, huh?

Gloria: I'm learning everything I can about D.N.A. testing in criminal trials.

Kevin: Ah. Well, the police take a sample, and if you did it, you're toast. What more is there to know?

Gloria: Some way to throw the test results off.

Kevin: (Laughs) yeah, good luck with that.

Gloria: Doesn't seem like they take blood anymore. It's mostly hair, saliva...

Kevin: Unh-unh, hair is, uh, hair is usually used for drug testing.

Gloria: Fine. Then saliva it is. Whose can I give 'em?

Kevin: Well, Fen drools a lot.

Gloria: Kevin...

Kevin: Mom, I'm joking. You can't fake it anyway. They swab your cheek, the police. You can't just hand them a vial of spit.

Gloria: There has to be some way out of this.

Kevin: Well, let's see. Look on the bright side. You know what's coming. Of course, if William finds out you stole his case file--

Gloria: William's not gonna find out.

Victoria: (Groans) ow.

Sharon: Victoria, if you're cramping, maybe I should get help.

Victoria: No... (Grunts) its fine. It's going away. It's fine.

Sharon: Maybe I should take you to the hospital-- I mean, just in case.

Victoria: (Clears throat) I... I think its heartburn.

Sharon: Are you sure?

Victoria: Yeah. It's--its--its better now. I, um, I probably just need to rest.

Victor: I hired you to prove Jack's ownership of Jabot months ago.

Michael: He's running a major corporation. He can't hide that forever.

Victor: He's doing a pretty good job of it.

Michael: He'll slip up, hopefully before you break ground on your new development.

Victor: Uh-huh. Let me ask you something. How are you gathering all this information?

Michael: I have a team of certified fraud examiners digging into it full-time.

Victor: A team of fraud examiners. Is that it?

Michael: The less you know about my methods, the better. Just give me a little more time.

Amber: (Quietly) I don't get paid again till next week.

Cane: (Quietly) I don't think I can sit that long. My bum's already hurting.

Amber: Cane, what are we gonna-- (normal voice) uh, excuse me, hi. We changed our minds. Could we see a dessert menu, please?

Woman: Sure. Be right back.

Amber: Thanks.

Cane: I think chocolate cake's gonna be a temporary fix.

Amber: I'm just stalling until we figure what to do.

Cane: No call wash dishes for the food. (Quietly) maybe Gina will split us the meal. The meantime, we have to start economizing.

Amber: (Groans) my favorite word.

Cane: We have to budget better. First thing we'll do is get rid of that internet...

Amber: What?

Cane: We'll clip some coupons, eat out less and a lot less shopping.

Amber: Uh, no, no. That isn't possible. I work at a boutique, okay? Plus everything I buy, it's on sale, and I get an employee discount.

Cane: All right, we'll have to take on more shifts.

Amber: I already work 50 hours a week. What, you never want to see me, huh?

Cane: What I'm trying to tell you is--

Amber: (Normal voice) no. No. You know what? We live in a broom closet, okay? We can't afford anything, we can't do anything fun, and now you're telling me we can't even afford to eat lunch?

Daniel: Hey, guys. Uh... sorry, we kind of overheard you. Not have enough cash to cover the bill?

Cane: No, not really.

Lily: Well, don't worry. We've been there.

Amber: Yeah, we're kind of stuck here.

Daniel: Well, why don't you let us buy this time?

Cane: No.

Amber: No, I can't do that.

Daniel: No, seriously, it's totally cool.

Victoria: No, I--I'm not. I'm not doubled over in pain, but they come and go. Do you really think that's necessary? Okay, all right. I'll be in soon.

Sharon: Was that, uh, your doctor?

Victoria: Yeah. Yeah. He wants to see me as a-a precaution.

Sharon: Okay. I'll take you.

Victoria: I have my car.

Sharon: Well, you shouldn't be driving. Maybe Brad can take you. I'll get him.

Victoria: No, his phone's turned off.

Sharon: Should I get Nikki?

Victoria: No.

Sharon: Nick?

Victoria: He's out of the office at a meeting. I'll--I'll call a cab, Sharon.

Sharon: No, you can't. Listen, last time I did that, it took them 45 minutes to get here.

Victoria: Why do you have to be so--ohh!

Sharon: All right. I've got your purse. We're going.

Victoria: Okay. Okay. (Groans)

Sharon: So you didn't leave a message for Brad?

Victoria: What's the point? It's nothing serious.

Michael: Good morning, ladies.

Victor: What are you two up to?

Sharon: Well, Victoria's having--

Victoria: A lunch downstairs. I'm having lunch, and then Sharon, she had some errands to run. Isn't that what you said?

Sharon: Right.

Victor: Well, then you have a good time. Some coffee?

Michael: I can handle all the caffeine you have.

Sharon: You don't want to tell Victor?

Victoria: No, no one. You got it?

Sharon: Are you sure that you're--

Victoria: Sharon, would you please stop fighting me? I think it's the least you can do after all the damage you've caused.

(Elevator door opens)

Daniel: There we, all paid.

Cane: Thanks, Guys. We won't forget it.

Amber: (Chuckles) how can we repay you?

Daniel: A little more praise would be nice.

Lily: Um, he's kidding.

Amber: (Laughs)

Daniel: Seriously, just let me win a couple basketball games, and we'll call it even.

Cane: That's a deal. And if you need anything fixed in your apartment, give me a call. I'm your guy.

Amber: Yeah, Cane fixed the electrical blowout we had at out place, but it's bound to happen again.

Cane: That's 'cause my wife likes to blend, curl and sing with the radio going all at once.

Daniel: Oh, mine does, too.

Lily: Um, well, we're glad that we could help, 'cause we've had enough of that ourselves.

Cane: It's nice to spread the wealth, huh?

Amber: Yeah, but who needs that kind of wealth, though? I wouldn't even know what to do with half of it. You know, it seems like the more money you have, the more you work, the more you spend. I like our jobs. Clock in, clock out, leave the stress at the door.

Lily: Yeah, I mean, who needs things like health insurance when you can be a wage slave instead?

Daniel: Trade benefits for flexibility.

Amber: Yeah, you know, when you work hourly, you get to have a life. I'm so glad that Cane did not take that job he got offered. I'd never see him.

Daniel: What job?

Cane: Katherine asked me to oversee a construction project.

Amber: Mm. Upper management, and talk about stress. He was gonna be responsible for building this whole resort town upstate.

Daniel: Clear Springs?

Amber: Mm-hmm.

Cane: Yeah, Clear Springs.

Daniel: Yeah, my mom's in on that. It's gonna be huge. You'd be heading up construction?

Cane: Well, whoever takes the job will. I passed on it.

Daniel: So you're not taking the job?

Amber: He made the right decision, though. It gives us a lot more time to spend together... after work. Which reminds me, I have to stop by the boutique. You know, I have to see if I can pick up a couple extra shifts.

Lily: Oh, you can't today. They're really slow. They sent me home early.

Amber: Really? Well, it's worth a shot. Thank you guys again for lunch, you know? You saved us from washing dishes.

Daniel: No problem.

Lily: Yeah, well, good luck.

Amber: Thanks.

Daniel: You must have a really good reason for turning down that job, like you're dying in two weeks, 'cause if they had offered that to me, I would have been all over it.

Jill: Uh, hi, Ji Min. It's Jill. I'm just calling to confirm that our meeting later is at 3:00, not 4:00. If I'm wrong about this, please call me. Um, meanwhile, welcome back, and I'll see you then.

Kay: Subtlety was never... your long suit.

Jill: Thank you in advance for staying out of my personal life. Now what are you even doing here? Why aren't you in your own office?

Kay: Ah, I'm looking through r�sum�s. Oh, uh, Cane said no to my offer.

Jill: Maybe I should talk to him again about working here at Jabot.

Kay: Uh, no, no. Your son made it perfectly clear that he didn't want anything handed to him. So now I am in need of a, uh, construction supervisor to bring on board by day's end. And so far, I'm down to the last two applicants, and I am going to hire... this one.

Gloria: So we got our plan straight, right?

Kevin: We'd better. I love you, but I'm not willing to risk jail time for this.

Gloria: Honey, you're not gonna have to. Just think positive, all right?

Kevin: One of us has to face reality here, Mom.

Gloria: We're not gonna mess up.

Lauren: Mess up what?

Kevin: Oh, the, uh, the, uh, the web site. One of the I.T. guys was messing with some of the settings, and the whole thing almost crashed.

Gloria: Yeah, a quarter of our sales are generated online. We can't afford to be down for one day.

Kevin: It's true.

(Cell phone rings)

Gloria: Excuse me. Hello?

Will: Gloria, its William. You got a moment?

Gloria: For you, William? Always.

Will: Um, I was wondering if you'd seen the Jabot case file at your place.

Gloria: Case file?

Will: Yeah, it's missing. I was wondering if I left it there the other night along with my jacket.

Gloria: Um, well, you know, William, I haven't seen it. But if it turns up, I'll certainly let you know.

Will: Okay. Thanks. See you soon.

Gloria: Bye. Plan "B."

Kevin: What is that-- shopping, right?

Gloria: Shopping?

Kevin: Don't you need to look for earrings to match your orange jumpsuit?

Gloria: (Chuckles)

Sharon: Victoria tried to call you. She said your phone was off.

Brad: I was in a meeting. What's going on?

Sharon: We're at the hospital. Victoria was having some cramps.

Brad: Well, is she okay? What about the baby?

Sharon: I don't know. She's in with her doctor right now.

Brad: I'm on my way.

Daniel: Mm. We're back.

Lily: Hey. Did you work up an appetite?

Daniel: Oh, yeah.

Lily: Good, 'cause I am starving.

Cane: Let's hope your wife's a cheaper date than mine.

Lily: Hey, leave Amber alone. She works very hard for her money, and she deserves to spend it a little bit.

Daniel: Ah, you're not gonna win that one.

Cane: Look, I know she works hard, and she pitches in.

Daniel: Look, if you guys are that strapped, why didn't you take the job over at Chancellor?

Cane: 'Cause I'm qualified to make a dry martini, not build a small town.

Lily: Yeah, but you've worked construction before, right? And I mean, nothing's better than hands-on training.

Cane: Yeah, but not when it comes to a managerial position. Besides, I'm not gonna take a job I haven't earned. There's probably a whole boatload of people I'll jump over just 'cause I'm Katherine Chancellor's grandson. I don't think it's fair.

Daniel: Yeah, but your family owns the business.

Lily: Yeah, his stepdad owns Newman Enterprises.

Daniel: And it takes some pretty big connections to push the mail cart.

Cane: (Chuckles) look, that's my point. If Katherine offered me a job laying bricks or hanging drywall, I would have said yes.

Lily: Yeah, but she knows that you're smart and that you could handle it. So why not prove it?

Daniel: Principles are nice, but they do not pay the rent, my friend.

Cane: Mm. Or buy lunch.

Daniel: You know, they don't call this "The land of opportunity" for nothing. The kind of money you'd be making at that job, you could buy everyone in this place lunch.

Amber: Hi there.

Kay: Hello, my dear. What brings you to the neighborhood?

Amber: I was hoping they might need a part-time receptionist or something.

Kay: Are you looking for a job?

Amber: Well, I'm already full-time at the boutique, but it barely pays enough to cover... sorry. I shouldn't be complaining to you about money.

Kay: Well, I had hoped that Cane would accept my offer.

Amber: Me, too. You must have found someone else by now, hmm?

Kay: Yes, in fact, um, I have a call in to one of the applicants now.

Amber: You know, the only thing stopping Cane is his pride. He has the ability. I've seen it.

Kay: Well, I'm afraid he gets his pride and his stubbornness from his father.

Amber: Sounds like you know how to relate to him.

Kay: Perhaps I can take a different approach to the job... you know, a way in which he can save his pride and, uh, accept the position.

Lauren: (Whispers) its okay. (Normal voice) hi.

Michael: How's our little man?

Lauren: You mean Pavarotti? He's been vocalizing for the last hour. I finally got him quieted down. He's kind of like you. What's up?

Michael: We both know Jack and Ji Min have been in collusion.

Lauren: Right. And you haven't been able to find anything to prove that.

Michael: No secrets, right?

Lauren: No secrets.

Michael: Jack owns House of Kim, which owns Jabot.

Lauren: What?

Michael: And they have been getting away with it for months.

Lauren: Jack owns Jabot?

Michael: Yeah, it's all very hush-hush. The man knows what he's doing. I have been trying to find proof... (Chuckles)

Lauren: You have nothing?

Michael: Well, nothing I can use. I have the word of an 8 year old, and I've got e-mails that are obtained illegally from Jack's account.

Lauren: Mm-hmm, yeah. I remember those e-mails.

Michael: Yeah, and there's nothing I can tell Victor about.

Lauren: Victor?

Michael: He has been waiting patiently for months.

Lauren: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Victor is backing Jack's campaign.

Michael: Yeah, he is.

Lauren: And he's also--

Michael: The bigger they are, the harder they fall and the sweeter the revenge.

Lauren: Oh, my--oh, my God. And--and who's this 8 year old?

Michael: Abby overheard her mom arguing with Jack.

Lauren: So Ashley knows. Who else does?

Michael: Nikki... and Kevin. Problem is, I have nothing to go on.

Lauren: Hmm.

Michael: What are you doing?

Lauren: I want to see Jack go down as much as you do, especially for everything that he did to your mother. I am hoping that this candid camera we have at Jabot will give you something that you can use. Ha. There we go.

Michael: You like... going for the long odds, don't ya?

Lauren: Married you, didn't I? Hmm.

Michael: Touch�. What--that's--that's... is that the...

Lauren: Yeah. That's Jill and Ji Min. They're alone in the boardroom.

Michael: Whoa. Gloria was right. They... they certainly have become very chummy.

[Camera at Jabot�s]

Jill: You're the reason Jabot is back on top again.

Michael: (Chuckles) already with the double entendres.

Lauren: Shh. Shh, shh.

[Camera at Jabot�s]

Ji Min: Well, it was a team effort. I can't take all the credit.

Jill: Well, the team had a great leader.

Ji Min: Leaders. You're included in that.

Jill: (Chuckles) so what's next?

Ji Min: Well, I was hoping to discuss the release of Jasmine in the U.S. and Canada, but I have a feeling the idea might meet with a little resistance.

Jill: From whom? From what you've told me, it's a great idea. Jasmine's a success. We're making money. Now's the time to move on it.

Ji Min: You're right. Let's do it.

Jill: You're not gonna regret this.

Ji Min: I hope not.

Jill: Good. Now I have a ton of ideas on the promotion and the packaging--

Ji Min: Well, why don't we discuss 'em over dinner?

Jill: Well, why don't we discuss 'em now, and that way we can enjoy our evening without having to worry about business?

Ji Min: Jill! I like the way you think.

Jill: (Laughs)

(Knock on door)

Will: Come in.

Gloria: Am I disturbing?

Will: No. The lady that brings me muffins?

Gloria: Mm.

Will: Never. Here's your basket.

Gloria: And I have big plans for this basket, and they all involve you.

Will: Ah. Another refill?

Gloria: (Laughs) am I that obvious?

(Knock on door)

Gloria: Kevin?

Kevin: Um, sorry to interrupt.

Gloria: What is it?

Kevin: I, uh, I locked my keys in the car.

Gloria: Again?

Will: You in the parking garage?

Kevin: Yeah. Any chance you could help me get them out?

Will: No, I'm waiting for a call, but I'll have my assistant go downstairs and help you.

Brad: Sharon? Any word on her condition?

Sharon: Uh, no. Victoria is in with Dr. Okamura right now. It could be nothing, Brad.

Brad: Were you with her when it happened?

Sharon: Yeah, and she thought it was heartburn. I just thought it was best to be safe.

Brad: I appreciate you staying with her.

Sharon: Well, I don't want her to be alone.

Brad: Where are they?

Sharon: They're right in there.

Brad: Okay. I'll take it from here. Thank you.

Sharon: Okay.

Ji Min: Now how much should we Americanize the graphics?

Jill: Well, we'd want the marketing to reflect the new line. I mean, definitely a name change-- "Jasmine by Jabot"-- because we're introducing an existing foreign product line�

(Knock on door)

Jack: Please forgive my interrupting.

Ji Min: Oh, what is it, Jack?

Jack: We need to discuss the tie-in... now.

[Michael and Lauren watching the security camera at Jabot�s on their laptop at home]

Michael: Everybody's favorite boss has arrived.

Ji Min: Well, I wasn't aware that we were meeting today.

[Michael and Lauren watching the security camera at Jabot�s on their laptop at home]

Lauren: Good timing.

Jack: I just think we need to straighten things out sooner rather than later. You don't mind, do you, Jill?

Jill: Would it matter if I did, Jack?

Ji Min: Uh, why don't you give us a minute? We'll finish up later.

Jill: (Sighs) okay. I'll go check my e-mail.

Jack: Could I trouble you, please to close the door?

Jill: No trouble at all.

Jack: What the hell do you think you're doing, walking around here like you own the place? I gave you specific orders. I did not want Jasmine rolled out!

Lauren: Whoa. If that doesn't prove that Jack owns Jabot, I don't know what does.

Michael: Too bad this isn't admissible in court.

Lauren: I can't believe it.

Ji Min: I don't like you undermining me in front of my associates.

Jack: I don't like you defying my orders.

Ji Min: We've already started planning this.

Jack: Unplan it. We are not moving into a whole new industry just after Jabot got back on its feet.

Ji Min: What the hell am I supposed to tell Jill?

Jack: You tell Jill whatever you want. Just follow my orders, got it?

Michael: I don't know whether to jump up and down or to cry.

Lauren: I cannot believe we have this much inadmissible proof.

Michael: Look at that poor guy.

Lauren: You know, now it's gonna seem like Ji Min can't make a decision when he tells Jill.

Michael: Well, there's always another option.

Lauren: Yeah, go to Jack? Then he'll be out of a job.

Michael: Oh, and there's an other, other option.

Lauren: What's the other, other option?

Michael: He could tell Jill and the rest of the world what's really going on.

Lauren: You really think he would do that?

Michael: Mm, mm.

Jill: Is the coast clear?

Michael: I think we're about to find out.

Ji Min: Jack left.

Jill: Good. Okay. Now about those ideas I had on marketing--

Ji Min: Jill, I just got a call from one of my advisors in Tokyo. We feel like it isn't quite the right time to bring Jasmine to the U.S.

Jill: Well, that was sudden. What changed your mind?

Ji Min: Well, my colleague just doesn't feel like it would be best right now. He wants to postpone it.

Jill: Well, it's up to you. You are the boss.

Lauren: Oh, he is so close!

Michael: Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, Ji Min. You know you want to tell her. You know you want to tell her.

Ji Min: We haven't done enough field testing in the U.S. Market. It just might be prudent to wait until we do a little more research.

Jill: Ji Min, I'm sorry. I can see that you're as disappointed as I am.

Michael: She's disappointed? She's disappointed? We're so close!

Lauren: He looks so defeated.

Michael: What do you expect? He works for Jack Abbott. Maybe I can use some of that negative energy to my advantage.

Victoria: Sharon didn't have to call you.

Brad: I need to be here, Victoria. When are they doing the ultrasound?

Victoria: Should be any time now.

Brad: Have you called your parents yet?

Victoria: No. No, it's not worth it. They can't even be in the same room without fighting. And I do not need that stress.

Brad: Well, whatever you decide is fine by me.

Gloria: Michael, please just do this, and I'll never ask you another favor. All right. Cut the sarcasm. Just please, please do it.

Kevin: You think he will?

Gloria: If anybody knows what's at stake... it's your brother. (Whispers) let's get outta here.

(Telephone rings)

Will: Bardwell. What is it, Counsel? I don't have the file in front of me. Now, look, I-- I'm gonna have to go and get it and call you back.

[Gloria sneaks in Will�s office and puts the Jabot file on the floor]

Gloria: (Whispers) okay, okay.

Kevin: Hey, William. I, uh... I just wanted to thank you.

Will: You get your car unlocked?

Kevin: Yes. Your assistant is a pro.

Will: (Laughs) well, she has to be. It's happened a few times before.

Kevin: (Chuckles)

Will: Excuse me. [Will goes into his office] Oh, Gloria, I didn't realize�

[Gloria drops her purse]

Gloria: Oh! Oh! Oh!

Will: Come here. Let me-- let me help you.

Gloria: Oh, William, I am so clumsy. Oh, thank you very much.

Will: What?

Gloria: Oh, Dear.

Will: Here it is.

Gloria: What?

Will: The D.N.A. folder from the Jabot case file.

Gloria: William Bardwell, are you telling me it was right there the whole time?

Will: Yeah. Good thing. If this fell into the wrong hands...

Gloria: Something wrong?

Will: Yeah, something's missing. Huh.

Amber: Right where I left it. I'm such a ditz.

Cane: A cute one at that.

Kay: Well, all right. Thank you for calling, and, uh, good luck to you and your wife. Absolutely. Well, hello, you two.

Amber: Hi. I left my purse here after I called Cane to come pick me up.

Kay: Oh, really? Hmm.

Cane: That phone call sounded like bad news.

Kay: Yes. Well, the, um, head of construction I just hired has backed out at the last moment-- some kind of family emergency-- and now I'm facing this enormous project without a supervisor I can trust.

Amber: Could you promote someone?

Kay: I'm not at all sure at this point. I just found out that my senior foreman is buying substandard materials. If there's one thing I can't stand, it is shoddy work, shoddy people.

Cane: Yeah, there's no excuse if you have a decent budget.

Amber: Well, Kay's building a whole town. I'm sure there's plenty of money.

Cane: What kind of materials were they?

Kay: Uh, well, steel for one thing. Uh, I keep getting these questions thrown at me, and, uh--

Cane: Like what?

Kay: Well, what is the difference between high-strength, low-alloy steel or dual phase steel? I mean, come on. Do--do you know?

Cane: The first one has manganese added. The second one, dual phase, is heat treated. Both, uh, processes increase the tensional strength of the metal. Uh, but H.S.L.A. steel is generally used in projects such as, uh, building bridges, 'cause they can deal with more stress, especially in the cold.

Amber: Wow. You know your stuff.

Cane: (Chuckles)

Kay: (Chuckles) yes.

Cane: Well, you learn a thing or two working construction.

Kay: Uh, uh, Cane, now I know you had your reasons for not accepting the job I offered, but... you would be doing me an enormous favor if you would just fill in temporarily.

Cane: Yeah, but... temporary has a habit of becoming permanent.

Kay: No, I promise you, I will keep on looking u-until I find someone who is--is right for the job, uh, to replace you. And then you can go back to bartending and, uh, anything else you do.

Amber: Come on. Kay's family. Can't you just help her out a little bit?

Cane: All right. I'll do it.

Amber: Mm! Yay!

Cane: On one condition.

Kay: And?

Cane: Promise you'll fire me as soon as you can.

Kay: Done. Done.


Amber: (Laughs) hmm.

Sharon: You okay?

Jack: Yeah, yeah. I just, uh, I got a lot going on.

Sharon: Hey, I-- I read that article in today's paper about Jabot. The stock is up 50% in the last quarter. You must be ecstatic.

Jack: I would be if it were my company.

Sharon: Well, it was your father's. It's got to at least be comforting, knowing that it's in good hands.

Jack: I gave Ji Min a few pointers.

Sharon: Oh, I know you did. I'm sure that's the reason for its success. I was thinking, um, maybe we could have dinner later.

Jack: Uh, sorry. I'm--I'm already booked. I'm interviewing for a new campaign manager.

Sharon: Oh. Well, some other time then.

Jack: Right.

Michael: Jack can be a pompous blowhard.

Victor: That's supposed to be news?

Michael: Well, it's about to come back and haunt him.

Victor: How?

Michael: Ji Min Kim.

Victor: What about Ji Min Kim?

Michael: He's a man who excels at business. He's never taken an order from anyone. And yet, there he is, under the thumb of a man who treats him like pond scum.

Victor: How'd you find that out?

Michael: Trust me when I tell you it's a weakness we can exploit.

Victor: You're saying he's ripe for the picking?

Michael: I can almost guarantee it.

Daniel: What are you thinking about?

Lily: Cane.

Daniel: You're thinking of other men already?

Lily: I was thinking that he'd better take that job.

Daniel: Yeah. Being broke all the time is fun, but come on.

Lily: Yeah. Good thing I didn't marry you for your money.

Daniel: (Laughs) just my good looks?

Lily: (Laughs) I mean, taking that job would solve all his money problems. He'd be crazy not to take it.

Daniel: I know, I know. If it were me, it would be a no-brainer.

Lily: Yeah. Maybe he's not very ambitious.

Daniel: Hmm.

[Cane takes out his cell phone and calls someone]

Cane: I'm in. I took the job. They practically had to beg me before I finally said yes. Langley, Langley, come on, Mate, we have to be patient. We don't want to seem too eager. Huh. Right.

(Door closes)

Kevin: Well, it's a good thing William found what was missing, huh?

Gloria: I guess I didn't put the papers back in the right order.

Kevin: Who cares? He found it. That's all that matters.

Gloria: Yeah, thank God for that.

Kevin: Oh, Mom, you were so great in there, spilling all that stuff out of your purse.

Gloria: Honey, I had to do something, otherwise we would've gotten caught.

Kevin: I don't think I know anyone who thinks on their feet as quickly as you do.

Gloria: It was sloppy, Kevin.

Kevin: Mom, the plan worked. You should be happy.

Gloria: I am happy. I'm happy we didn't get caught.

Kevin: You know, we make a great team.

[Lauren is at home and sits down to watch the security camera at Jabot on her laptop]

Gloria: I know we do. But next time, we've gotta be more careful.

Kevin: Oh, next time, huh?

Gloria: Yeah, because we've gotta stay on top of this investigation.

Kevin: Well, it shouldn't be a problem, with you busting into William's office every five minutes.

Gloria: I'm serious, Kevin. William can never find out that I'm the one... that I'm the one who put that cleaning solvent in the face cream.

Woman: Okay, it's gonna be a little cold now.

Victoria: Okay. Whoo.

Dr. Okamura: Yeah, there's the baby. See? It's moving.

Brad: (Chuckles)

Victoria: Oh. That's my baby.

Brad: (Chuckles) that's a good-lookin' kid.

Victoria: Brad. (Giggles) Brad, it's a blip. (Laughs)

Dr. Okamura: Everything looks fine to me.

Victoria: Really?

Dr. Okamura: Sometimes cramps at this stage are from hormones that slow the digestion, or the constant pressure that's being put upon the uterus.

Brad: Anything we can do to avoid that from happening?

Dr. Okamura: It's really not anything you can, uh, control. I just want you to make sure that your wife gets plenty of rest, takes an iron supplement and avoid as much stress as possible.

(Cell phone rings)

Jill: Oh, no. This is not good. Hello, Elsiann. We just got here. I mean, we literally just walked in the door. (Sighs) okay. I'll be there. So much for dinner.

Ji Min: Now what?

Jill: Oh, that issue in shipping. It's turned into a full-blown emergency. I need to go back to the office.

Ji Min: I'll drive you.

Jill: No, no, no. There's a cab right there, and my car is at work anyway. I'm so sorry.

Ji Min: Well-- it's all right. Rain check?

Jill: Absolutely.

Victor: Hello, Ji Min.

Ji Min: Oh, I'm surprised to see you, Victor. Mr. Baldwin.

Michael: You can skip the formalities. He knows everything.

Ji Min: I'm sorry. Knows what, exactly?

Victor: That Jack Abbott is your boss and owns the House of Kim... and owns Jabot Cosmetics... that he owns you. And you will help us bring him down.

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

Gloria: William makes me happy.

Kevin: Oh, right. You're in it for his sense of humor. It has nothing to do with his uncle's money, right?

Phyllis: Do you have anything else going on?

Victoria: I'm not gonna ignore what you're doing. You have to stop.

Brad: I have a right to protect my daughter.
