Daniel: What are you doing?
Phyllis: I, um, I'm trying to figure out how you can catch fireflies during the day.
Daniel: Is there a reason you're making it so difficult on yourself? You could just wait until it gets dark.
Phyllis: Nope. No, I can't do that. Noah may show up and I cannot tell him the fireflies that he caught for his dad are dead. See? They're dead.
Phyllis: They're dead.
Phyllis: Why can I not find any information about this? You can find everything on the internet.
Daniel: Well, you know, don't worry about it. Think of me as your personal search engine. I happen to know for a fact that fireflies hide in tall grass during the day.
Phyllis: How do you know that?
Daniel: I used to catch 'em with Dad.
Phyllis: Hey, Sweetie. Hey, Sweetie, Mommy's here. Shh. Shh. Shh. Shh.
Daniel: Hey... hey, what's shakin', little sis? Hey!
Phyllis: She, uh... she's looking for Nick. He used to, uh, play with her while I took a shower.
Daniel: I could watch her if you wanna take a shower.
Phyllis: No, I already took one. That's--that's okay. I-I--and I need to-- I need to catch these. I need to just go and-- and look in the grass.
Daniel: Okay, well, I'll stay with Summer. What are you wearing to the service?
Phyllis: I don't know what to wear. I don't know what to wear. I mean, I was up in my closet for an hour and a half trying everything on. What do you wear to your husband's memorial service?
Daniel: What about black? Black's pretty standard.
Phyllis: Nick wasn't standard.
Noah: Mom! Mom!
Sharon: Yeah, Noah, what is it?
Noah: Have you seen my portable video game?
Sharon: Which one?
Noah: The one Dad bought me.
Sharon: Um, weren't you playing with it right here the other day?
Noah: There it is!
Sharon: You're welcome.
Noah: The last time I played this with Dad, I beat him. I should've let him win.
(Playing Debussy's "Clair de Lune")
Victor: I haven't heard you play that for a while.
Nikki: "Clair de Lune." It was one of Nicholas' favorites when he was little. He called it "Claire's tune."
Victor: Which one of these should I wear?
Nikki: Um, gray.
Victor: Where are the flowers?
Nikki: Oh, there were so many. I just had Miguel donate them. The cards are on the desk. (Telephone ringing)
Victor: I don't wanna talk to anyone.
Nikki: Karen called. The police will keep the reporters away from the church.
Victor: Well... thank your campaign manager for that. Um... I don't know which one. Um...
Victoria: Are you leaving?
Brad: I thought I'd give you your space.
Victoria: Don't go.
Brad: I heard you walking around at 3:00 A.M.
Victoria: Oh, yeah, I'm just... I was trying to figure out what to say at the service.
Brad: Well, when you come up with something, I could take a look at it for you.
Victoria: It's just words. They're meaningless words. I don't know what to say.
Brad: Just say what comes to mind. It doesn't have to be perfect, just real.
Victoria: How am I supposed to say good-bye to my little brother?
Noah: Will we see Dad today?
Sharon: Your dad's in heaven, Honey, with Cassie.
Noah: I know. But I wanna see him.
Sharon: You can't.
Noah: But I want to.
Sharon: The coast guard didn't find him.
Noah: Then he could still be alive.
Sharon: I wish he were, but he isn't. The plane crashed into a lake, you know?
Noah: He knows how to swim.
Sharon: Hello? Oh, hey, Jack. Well, we're gonna be leaving pretty soon here for the church. It's okay. Um, you and I will do something together in Nick's honor when you get back.
Nick: Whenever you need me, I'm a phone call away.
Noah: When Cassie died, you promised you'd never leave me.
Nick: Son, I haven't left you and I never, ever will. You're the most important person in my life.
Sharon: Noah? Noah, you wanna speak to? Jack?
Sharon: Um.. he's not feeling that well. He has a little tummy ache. Um... he's okay. Um, all right, I'll--I'll... I'll call you later. All right, bye. Jack said to tell you hi.
Noah: Did anyone tell Sea Wind?
Sharon: I don't know.
Noah: I wanna go see him.
Sharon: All right, um, why don't I take you up to the stables after the service?
Sharon: All right, it's time to get ready. Go brush your hair, brush your teeth.
[Sharon opens up a box that has her wedding ring to Nick in it and remembers]
Nick: Will you marry me, Sharon?
Phyllis: Look, success!
Phyllis: Success! I have the flies! I have the fireflies! You were right. They were in the grass! I have them! You're a genius.
Daniel: Thank you. You feel better?
Phyllis: Yeah, it was kind of good to get out, think about something else for a little bit.
Phyllis: Yeah. How's the pretty girl?
Daniel: She's been asleep for a long time.
Phyllis: She's such a pretty girl.
Phyllis: She was Daddy's little girl.
Phyllis: She's never gonna see that.
Daniel: Yeah, she is. She is, 'cause we're gonna tell her. You know, we could show her pictures and movies. I can tell her how... Nick and I didn't get along at first, but he turned out to be a great stepdad. Yeah. He was the best.
Nick: Life has a way of working things out and sometimes things can happen that you'd never expect. Just don't let it mess you up. You came way too close last night.
Daniel: Yeah, and you know, I'm really glad you stopped me. I mean, I was already feeling bad and... I just would've made things a whole lot worse. So... thanks.
(Knock on door)
Michael: Hey, anyone home?
Phyllis: Hey, yeah.
Michael: Knock, knock.
Phyllis: Shh, shh, shh.
Lauren: Oh, the baby's asleep. Hi.
Lauren: I hope you don't mind us coming around early. I just thought you'd need some help with the baby.
Phyllis: Oh, well, that's what big brothers are for.
Michael: Oh, hey, Daniel.
Lauren: Hi, Daniel.
Daniel: Mr. Baldwin, Lauren.
Michael: How about you? You get some sleep?
Phyllis: Yeah, I got a couple hours.
Lauren: How's the precious little girl?
Phyllis: Oh, Sweetie. I think she's wet.
Daniel: You know what? I'll take her. I'll change her.
Daniel: Come on. Yeah.
Phyllis: Pretty girl. That's a pretty girl.
Daniel: Come on.
Lauren: So Daniel is changing diapers? That's so nice.
Phyllis: Yeah. He's been very helpful.
Michael: I wonder if there's gonna be more of that in his future.
Phyllis: No, I think he's just--he's, you know, fine just changing his sister's diapers for now. You wanna sit down?
Michael: Sure. Lauren and I have, um, been thinking about becoming Summer's legal guardian.
Phyllis: Oh, okay. And?
Michael: We'd be honored.
Michael: Yeah, I'll draw up the papers as soon as I can.
Phyllis: Oh, thank you. Thank you. You don't know what that means to me, thank you.
Michael: We were also thinking that maybe you and Summer would like to come live with us for a while.
Phyllis: Oh, no, no, no, I don't wanna impose.
Lauren: No, it wouldn't be an imposition. We would love to have you. And you know how Fen feels about Summer.
Michael: I don't like the idea of you being here alone.
Daniel: Hey, Mom, we're out of baby wipes.
Phyllis: Oh, there's, uh, there's a new box under the changing table. Listen, I'm not alone. I'm--I'm... fine, you know? There are a lot of people around the ranch, and, uh, Nikki and Victor are up the road.
Michael: Yeah, yeah, we all know how much you love them.
Lauren: Wouldn't you rather be surrounded by friends? And we're kinda fun.
Nick's voice: We live here now-- you, me... our little girl.
Phyllis: Uh, I would rather be here. I wanna be here. All of Nick's things are here. I wanna be here.
Phyllis: Why did this happen to us?
Victoria: I can run an international corporation, but I can't write a three minute speech. What is wrong with me?
Brad: There's nothing wrong with you. This is a lot more important than the company.
Victoria: How do I... how do I summarize my brother's life and what he meant to me in a few paragraphs? How do I do that?
Brad: It'll come to you. Say what's in your heart, Sweetheart.
Victoria: Thanks. Thank you.
Brad: You know what? Uh, I'm gonna ask you a few questions. Don't think about it, just answer.
Brad: What was Nick's favorite color?
Brad: Yeah, basketball. Um... what did you admire most about him?
Victoria: That's easy-- the way he'd just... tell it to me straight. He wasn't mean. He was just honest without being judgmental. It's not an easy thing to do in our family. And I could always go to Nicholas because I... I trusted him, you know? And I... I knew that he'd tell me the truth.
Brad: Hey, you.
Colleen: Hey, Victoria.
Colleen: Here you go. Um... I'm really sorry about Nick.
Colleen: And... about the baby.
Brad: I saw Colleen the day after.
Victoria: We aren't-- you know, we're not saying anything to anyone yet.
Colleen: I haven't said anything. I promise.
Victoria: I appreciate that. Um, if you'll excuse me, I have to finish this, so, um, I'm gonna do that.
Brad: That was very sweet of you.
Jill: Oh, aren't they beautiful?
Kay: Oh, yeah.
Jill: See, I told you we should've brought flowers.
Nikki: Well... no, I'm glad that you didn't. There were so many and it--it's just depressing, you know?
Kay: Well, we, uh, made a donation to Cassie's Challenge in lieu of flowers.
Nikki: Thank you. Would you like some tea?
Jill: I'm--I'm fine.
Kay: Um, I would if it's not too much trouble.
Nikki: No, no, no, no. Please.
Victor: Oh, hi, Jill.
Jill: Nikki's in the kitchen with Katherine. Oh, Victor, I'm so sorry.
Victor: You know, the ironic thing is, I was supposed to have been on that plane. I asked my boy to fill in for me in the last minute.
Jill: Don't you do this. You have asked people to fill in many times and nothing happened. You've taken that jet many times without a problem. This is not your fault.
Victor: (Exhales) this is hitting me like a ton of bricks, you know? I don't know how I'm gonna bury my son.
Jill: You're gonna do what I did. You're gonna think of all the times you had with him-- the good times and the bad times-- all the times. You're gonna cherish them. Plus... you have two beautiful grandchildren who are like little pieces of Nick. And you get to watch him go on through them.
Victor: Yeah. Yeah.
Jill: I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.
Nikki: You know, the last conversation I had with Nicholas was an argument. He told me I was controlling, just like his father. Those were his last words to me, our last moments together and I'm gonna regret that the rest of my life.
Kay: Oh, Nikki, we all have difficult moments with our family. But those aren't the moments we remember.
Nikki: Oh, he was so angry at me. I'll never be able to forget that.
Kay: All right, so he was angry, but your son loved you very, very much. Even... even when you disagreed, he loved you.
Nikki: I didn't say I loved him that day. Why didn't I?
Kay: Because you didn't have to. He knew.
Nick: Mom, I know you're gonna make it through this. No, I know I can help, Mom.
Nikki: It has been pretty lonely around here for me lately. Suddenly I'm very, very glad to have my son back home.
Victor: Sweetheart? Sweetheart? Oh, there you are. Time to leave for the church.
Nikki: Victor, I can't. I-I just can't sit there and listen to everybody talk about him.
Victor: I'll be with you. I'll be with you.
Nikki: It's just too painful. I-I can't do it. I can't do it.
Victoria: Hey, you know what? It's okay if you don't wanna speak.
Noah: I want to.
Victoria: Okay, sit down.
Man: We come together today to say farewell and to honor Nicholas Christian Newman. As we remember the departed, we also give comfort to those who are hurting at this time. Please join me in prayer.
Man: "There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die."
Nikki: "A time to plant and a time to uproot. A time to... to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build."
Kay: Here, Sweetheart. Here. "A time to weep, and there's a time to laugh. There's a time to mourn and a time to dance."
Victoria: Nicholas was the best. And I... I mean that in every sense of the word-- a brother, a father, a son, a friend, a businessman. He was dedicated to all of those roles that he filled in each of our lives. My brother was a man of conscience and... he stood up for what he believed in and didn't back down-- which wasn't really... an easy thing to do growing up in a house with our parents. You can trust me on that. This morning when I was thinking about Nick, and trying to figure out what to say, I remembered this e-mail that he sent me for my birthday.
Victoria: "Dear Victoria, I thought I'd let you know that there's nothing to worry about-- we've alerted the fire department and they'll be standing by when we light the candles on your cake tonight. I wanted to buy you something great for your birthday, but you either own it or don't really want it. So this e-mail is your birthday present. It's my confession. Remember when you had a sleepover birthday party and you made ice cream sundaes? Well, I'm the one who mixed in the pepper with the chocolate ice cream. And that time you and I raced horses and the loser had to wait on the winner for a day? Well, I lowered your stirrups. You know how you can never find your stapler in the office and it drives you crazy? Well, every day when I come to work, I move it. Just like I used to move your diary after I read it. Well, have a great birthday, Sis. And I'll give you a hug in person when I see you. Love, Nicholas."
Noah: Everyone at my school says I have the coolest dad. And sometimes when he'd pick me up, he'd bring snacks for the entire class. Me and my dad... we loved to play basketball. A lot. His jump shot needed work, though, because I always beat him. Our favorite game was "horse" because we loved riding horses together. And he liked helping me with my homework. Sometimes he'd pretend he didn't know the answer, but I knew he really did. Uh... and this one time... I was playing with a ball inside the house and I broke a lamp and Dad said that he did it so I wouldn't get in trouble. Sorry, Mom. When Cassie died, I didn't like that she was all alone in heaven. And... now... my dad is there to take care of her.
Nikki: Oh, that was his first birthday.
Nikki: There's more cake on him and on the floor than in his mouth.
Kay: He really was such a beautiful, beautiful child.
Nikki: Thank you.
Kay: I like that one.
Nikki: His little bracelet. Oh... remember the day he was born? It's like yesterday.
Victor: Some of you may know I didn't have parents. I didn't know them. I... grew up in an orphanage. And I have this wonderful family. I became a father to Nicholas. You know, every father wants his son to grow up and be a man-- to be independent, to be strong, to stand up to vicissitudes of life, because God knows, we all... go through enormous ups and downs in life. And there's one image of my boy that I will always remember. He was about 3 or 4 years old. And I'd asked him to stop doing something. He said, "No." So I became a bit more emphatic about it and I said, "I want you to stop doing this." He said, "No." So I got a little angrier. In fact, I lost my temper, as some of you know I'm inclined to do now and then. And he just stood there with his hands across his little chest and said, "No." And I knew then that he would become a man. That he would stand up to anything in life, that he was not intimidated by his father. Just two years ago, a lot of you gathered here with my family to say good-bye to my beloved granddaughter Cassie. And I can't believe that we're here again, saying good-bye... to my boy. We are such stuff that dreams are made on. And our little life is rounded with a sleep. A very wise man said that. Noah, my boy, you had a great dad. And I will protect you.
Nikki: I just couldn't bear to go. I-I couldn't sit there and listen to everybody talk about your brother.
Victoria: Mom, its okay. I'll give a copy of my e-mail.
Nikki: I'd like that. Sweetheart, have you eaten?
Victoria: No, I'll grab something in a minute.
Nikki: No, you've got to eat. You have to stay strong with the baby.
Victor: Well, thank you, Hope. I appreciate it. I'll tell Nikki. And when you talk to Victor Jr. let me know. All right. Thank you. Bye.
Ji Min: Excuse me, Victor? I didn't have a chance to speak with you at the church. I just wanted to tell you, you have my deepest, deepest sympathy.
Victor: Thank you, Ji Min. That means a lot, thank you.
Jill: Would you like Ji Min and me to give you a ride or should I call Robert and have him pick you up?
Kay: Well, I think we should all leave and let them have their privacy.
Jill: How's Nikki doing?
Kay: She's trying to be strong for the family. Um, and the doctor prescribed a mild sedative for her, but she refused it.
Jill: You don't think she'd try something stronger?
Kay: Oh, dear God, I hope not. I plan to stay very close to her, just in case.
Sharon: Oh, that was Halloween. Your dad's ninja turtle costume, remember?
Noah: Yeah, I took that one of him.
Phyllis: That's one of his better shots.
Noah: He looks so funny.
Phyllis: Yeah. I like that one of you and your dad on the horses.
Noah: He was teaching me how to jump.
Phyllis: Oh, wow. You gave a great speech today, Noah.
Noah: Thanks. Um, you didn't see the fireflies that I caught for Dad, did you?
Phyllis: Oh, they're-- they're out on the porch.
Noah: Oh, you gotta see 'em, Mom.
Brad: Here you go.
Nikki: Oh, dear God, he really is gone. I don't know how to do this. I don't know how to live each day without... my little boy. How do I move on? How do I do it?
Victor: I don't know. I don't know.
Noah: Look, they're still alive!
Noah: Go. Fly away. You're free.
Phyllis: Who's the pretty baby girl? Hmm? Who's the pretty baby girl? You like being here with Mommy, don't you? Daddy is with us. I can feel him. Summer, we're gonna have a good life-- just you and me. We're gonna have a good life. We're gonna be happy. Oh, we're gonna be happy. Aren't we? We're gonna laugh. We're gonna cry. And if you're anything like I was when I was a teenager, we're gonna fight. Right, Sweetie? Hi, Sweetie. Most importantly, we're gonna shop. We're gonna do everything a mother and daughter would do together. We will. Because you know what, Sweetie? You know what? Daddy would've wanted it that way.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Brad: I love Sharon as a friend.
Victoria: J.T. is my friend! Period.
Ji Min: Mrs. Chancellor, I wasn't expecting--
Kay: Jill will not be going overseas with you.
Sharon: Is there something you're not telling me, Jack?
Victor: I want Jack Abbott to end up with nothing-- absolutely nothing.
