Victor: Just talked to our banker in Germany.

Neil: Mm. Was I right?

Victor: Well, the minimum wage thing has them scared a little.

Neil: You want me to hold off?

Victor: Well, they want to wait till the results of the next election.

Neil: Uh, by the way, did you and Nikki get the fax that I sent to the ranch about today's meeting?

Victor: She did not see it. I did. So kindly send a copy of the fax to her at the Athletic Club. That's where she's staying now.

Neil: I'm sorry to hear that. I hope it's only temporary.

Jack: They say divorce is really bad for the stress levels. You know this Japanese flower arranging--Ikebana? Apparently lowers the blood pressure.

Kay: I am so sorry to hear about you and Victor.

Nikki: We were headed in that direction for a while anyway.

Kay: I know. I just hoped that you would work-- work things out, you know?

Nikki: "Compromise" is not in my husband's vocabulary.

Kay: Where are you staying?

Nikki: Right here. Up.

Kay: Oh, Darling, you should be staying with me. I-I would love to have you for as long as you need.

Nikki: Thank you, that's very sweet, but I'm okay here.

Kay: No, no, no. I'm--I'm--you really shouldn't be alone after your husband has left you.

Nikki: Oh, he didn't have the chance to do that.

Kay: What do you mean?

Nikki: I left him. I--it was obviously that power or money was not going to fix this problem, and he wasn't willing to try. So that's that.

Kay: Well, I assume this has to do with you kissing your campaign advisor.

Nikki: Who happens to be walking towards our table right now.

Kay: Oh, God.

Nikki: Hi, David.

David: Hi, Nikki.

Kay: David.

David: Hello, Mrs. Chancellor. This fax came in for you at the desk.

Nikki: Oh, thank you.

David: Well, I'll see you back at the office.

Nikki: Okay.

David: Bye, Ladies.

Nikki: Bye.

Kay: Why is he still hanging around? I mean, there can't be any more campaign business to wrap up.

Nikki: I asked him to stay and work for me.

Kay: Really?

Lauren: So I know as much as you do. They called me and said that they were halting renovation, and... (Quietly) Honey, what are you doing?

Michael: You've always said I was good with my hands.

Lauren: You are.

Michael: Mm.

Lauren: Do you know how much I missed you? Mm. What do you think people would say if I just tore off your clothes right here?

Michael: There's no objection from this end.

Lauren: Mm, maybe we shouldn't. We are in a public place.

Michael: Unh-unh. That's no fun. Come on, we could drop our forks. The tablecloths are long.

Lauren: Honey...

Michael: Let's go home.

Lauren: We haven't gotten our food yet.

Michael: We can take out or come back later.

Lauren: (Whispers) that's tempting. That's really tempting, but they called me specifically for this... meeting, Honey. (Gasps)

Michael: Can I persuade you?

Lauren: I can't.

Michael: You can.

Lauren: Yeah. I can... but I can't.

Michael: No, no, it's too late. You said, "I can." Check, please! Check.

Phyllis: The reconstruction did not get approved. We're having a big meeting about it this evening.

Nick: Hi.

Woman: Hi.

Nick: Can I get a strawberry smoothie, extra whipped cream?

Woman: Mm-hmm.

Nick: Thanks.

Phyllis: I'll call you when I get word. Okay, thanks.

Nick: Hey.

Phyllis: Hi. I thought you would be at Newman averting crises.

Nick: I just wanted to let you know that I'm gonna go to your trial tomorrow.

Phyllis: You are?

Nick: Yeah, and the next day, and the next day, however long it takes. I'm gonna be there.

Phyllis: How come you changed your mind?

Nick: 'Cause I want to go and support you.

Phyllis: Thank you. I-I really appreciate that, especially since I forbid Daniel to come.

Nick: Why would you do that? I'm sure he'd want to go and support you, too.

Phyllis: He's under too much stress. I don't want to add to it.

Daniel: Will you please say something? If there's any way that you could forgive me...

Lily: Forgive you? I don't even know who you are anymore. I don't know if I ever knew you. And I thought the porn was bad, but now this? Daniel, you're a thief! I mean, how did you turn into this person? Where did my husband go?

Daniel: I'm still the same person.

Lily: No, you are not the same person!

Daniel: I want things to be the way they were before. I want to be a good husband.

Lily: No, it's too late for that. You never even stopped to consider what could happen to us or to me. I mean, what if I had been in here when they broke in? Or w--or worse, what if they had killed Devon?

(Knock on door)

Kevin: Daniel, it's me.

Daniel: It's not a good time!

Kevin: Open the door. It's an emergency.

Lily: Just open the door.

Kevin: Can we talk somewhere in private?

Daniel: Anything you have to say to me, you can say to Lily, too. I told her everything.

Kevin: What are you, crazy?

Lily: No, actually, Kevin, it was the smartest thing he's done since any of this ever happened. Someone broke into our house. So whatever you guys did has gone way too far!

Kevin: You got that right. Amber's gone.

Daniel: Where?

Lily: Yeah, I hope she took the money and ran.

Kevin: No, no, no, no.

Daniel: Don't call the cops. You do, they're gonna hurt her.

Lily: Don't be stupid. You can't handle this by yourself.

Kevin: We need to tell cane, let him decide what to do.

Daniel: That guy hates me. He doesn't want to talk to me.

Kevin: Well, then we'll go together. Come on.

Lily: I'm going with you.

Daniel: No, I don't want you getting involved.

Lily: Uh, it's a little too late for that, Daniel.

Daniel: I'm serious. I need to fix this myself.

Lily: Well, I'm not staying here alone.

Daniel: Then what about your dad's?

Lily: He's at work.

Daniel: Then let's go.

Lily: Where are we going?

Daniel: Going to Newman.

Victor: Neil, my wife has everything she could possibly want. She still isn't satisfied.

Neil: Okay, then maybe it's not about that.

Victor: Maybe it's about her newfound independence and her inability to see that... she and I are equal.

Neil: Well, do you think you are?

Victor: Well, we certainly are equal in our marriage. Of course, we're not equal when it comes to business. What the hell does she know about that?

Neil: Okay, um, how about this little advice? Why don't you let things, you know, cool off a little while?

Victor: Yeah, well, I have too many things that I need to deal with right now.

Neil: Really?

Victor: Yeah.

Neil: Such as?

Victor: Eh, some problems have cropped up regarding the development.

Neil: You're bringing Nicholas back today?

Victor: Yeah, he's down there.

Neil: Gotcha. Um, does he know about you and your wife's separation?

Victor: Does he know about it? He knows about it like everyone else in this town.

Nick: Oh, hey.

Sharon: Oh, hi! I was just going to call you before you almost ran into me just now. Are you in a hurry?

Nick: Uh, just a little late for a meeting.

Sharon: Oh, okay, 'cause I was hoping that we could talk later about the details for the shoot.

Nick: Yeah, actually, I don't think I can make it.

Sharon: Hmm. Did you get a better offer?

Phyllis: Nicholas is not leaving town. He's gonna sit right behind me at the trial. He said he wanted to support me all the way.

Michael: That's because I leaned on him. He has a responsibility to act like a devoted husband and father whether he feels it or not. He's not gonna lose this case for me.

Phyllis: Oh, right, right. Exactly. Um, I don't know why I thought that--

Michael: That he would willingly support you? Because he should.

Lauren: You okay?

Phyllis: Uh-huh. Yeah. Um, it--it doesn't matter why he's staying. It's just... you know... he's gonna be there. That--that's all that counts. Yeah.

Lauren: All right, Sweetie.

Phyllis: Okay.

Lauren: I'll see you later.

Phyllis: Yeah. I'll see ya. Bye.

Jack: I knew Victor and Nikki were having their problems. I didn't think it was quite that serious. Anyway, should make for an interesting meeting.

Sharon: Well, referee if you have to, and let me know how it goes.

Jack: Bye, Baby.

Sharon: Good-bye.

Kay: Jack, ready for the meeting?

Jack: Oh, yeah. Lookin' forward to it.

Kay: (Chuckles)

Michael: (Speaking indistinctly)

Cane: Methane is a colorless, odorless gas, under certain conditions, extremely flammable.

Michael: I don't know anyway.

Victor: Running a little late. I'm sorry.

Cane: And the cost of rectifying this problem was not factored in to the initial budget.

Michael: Yeah, we have this--

Lauren: (Quietly) Honey, hang up.

Michael: I'm in the middle of a meeting. I'll call you right back.

Nick: Tell me something-- why wasn't this realized during the initial survey?

Nikki: Excellent question.

Cane: We didn't know it existed.

Karen: Naturally, Chancellor wants to be compensated for the extra mitigation steps this will take.

Cane: And the extent of the construction schedule costs.

Victor: As my son said, this should not have been overlooked. Could it be that the mistake was made on the part of your survey team?

Cane: No, we hired an outside firm to do the initial shallow soil gas test, if you look at page three.

Nick: Are they reputable?

Cane: Yes, the very best.

Kay: We are not at fault.

Victor: Well, Katherine, someone is.

Nikki: Well, who would that be--Mother Nature?

Cane: Exactly. The, uh, geological shift could neither have been expected nor predicted.

Michael: All right, explain to us exactly what is at risk.

Cane: The methane gas buildup is under properties owned by Mrs. Newman.

Lauren: Does that include Fenmore's?

Cane: Yes, it does.

Victor: Now these buildings have been around for years without causing a problem.

Cane: And for years, the department of building safety has not had these current methane gas codes.

Jack: How's this affect my investment?

Cane: Your property is on the buffer zone. Therefore we had to halt construction and excavation while the mitigation team conducts further tests and assessments. If you look on page three...

Jack: (Groans) I say we blast the whole damn thing.

Neil: David. Hello again. You know, you must really love this place-- that, or you can't get enough of the break room food.

David: What makes you say that?

Neil: Oh, I don't know. What is this, your, uh, your third, maybe fourth job in six months?

David: Nikki and I work well together.

Neil: (Snaps fingers) I wouldn't get too comfortable, if I were you.

David: It's a good thing you're not me.

Neil: (Chuckles) watch your back, Amigo. A little advice.

David: N.V.P. and Newman do a lot of business together. If I were you, I'd check those feelings at the door.

Neil: It's not me you have to be concerned about.

Victor: Would it solve the methane problem?

Nikki: Look, we're not gonna blow up the town. We've come too far to take the easy way out.

Jack: Cheapest way I know to excavate.

Nick: I thought the point of this project was to restore, not to rebuild.

Nikki: Thank you.

Lauren: Yeah, I have invested way too heavily in this restoration, and to do anything else would jeopardize the structural integrity of my building.

Nikki: Not to mention all the other buildings we're renovating. It's just not worth it.

Jack: No, it is not worth it. Blast the whole damn thing. We'll build from the ground up.

Nikki: Jack, will you just give up this casino idea?

Lauren: Oh, no, no, no, no. Wait. If there is no casino, then I will completely rethink Fenmore's involvement in this.

Nikki: Lauren, it would be foolish of jack to do anything to jeopardize the downtown area.

Victor: Perhaps you need to rethink your plans... keep a few of the buildings, sacrifice the rest of them.

Nikki: You'd like that, wouldn't you?

Jack: Portrait of a crumbling marriage. I'm gonna cry.

Kay: All right, let's not waste any more time on this, would you please? Um, let us move forward, albeit cautiously, mm?

Nick: I don't see anything wrong with scaling back.

Jack: It'll only cost me millions.

Kay: Oh, jack. All of us are going to shoulder extra expenses.

Michael: I would like to see the methane mitigation system figured into everyone's cost.

Kay: Yes.

Lauren: Oh, well, yeah, I think that would be fair.

Jack: Whoa, whoa, wait, wait. Why should I pay for any of this?

Nick: You won't be the only one.

Cane: Whichever way we look at it, the casino's gonna require a passive mitigation system, which is basically a, uh, methane chimney that will extend above the vent line of the roof.

Jack: If the infrastructure of your precious buildings were up to par, we wouldn't be in this mess.

Nikki: Oh, oh. My buildings, so my fault, right?

Jack: You said it.

Victor: It seems to me we have only a few options. I suggest we pick the best and move on.

Kay: Well, I think you all should know that the city is threatening to pass a reversal, banning construction.

Cane: Unless we comply with regulations and standards.

Nikki: I'm sure our new senator could help.

Cane: And that includes your excavation.

Jack: Wait, so you're saying we have no choice?

Kay: You do today. Tomorrow, however's... eh.

Jack: All right, fax me the budget. I'll take a look at it.

Nick: Very good.

Sharon: Hey, how'd it go? Anyone throw a punch?

Nick: Uh, there were a few verbal parries, but other than that, it was pretty tame.

Sharon: Well, sounds like a successful meeting.

Nick: Oh, it was. Where you headed?

Sharon: I was gonna go and, um, talk to Carl, see if he can take over the shoot, because--

Nick: Okay, so I have a plan. We have put this shoot off for, uh, for a long time. Why don't we put it off for just a little bit longer?

Sharon: Well, I know they want the photos right away.

Nick: Who cares what they want?

Sharon: (Laughing)

Nick: I have a vision, you know? I was really looking forward to acting as creative director.

Sharon: Oh, you just want to use the bullhorn, don't you?

Nick: Yeah, pretty much.

Sharon: Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. Okay, well, you know what? Let's--let's reschedule. I say let's--let's do it.

Nick: Okay. It's gonna be worth it.

Lily: Yeah, we're in the elevator on our way to the break room.

Daniel: Amber, if this is some kind of joke, it isn't funny. Call me back.

Lily: Okay, bye.

Sharon: Oh, hi, guys.

Lily: Hi, Sharon, hi.

Daniel: Hi, Sharon.

Kevin: Hello.

Sharon: Hello.

Daniel: Is your dad on his way?

Lily: Yes. I want to help, 'cause I already know what's going on anyway.

Daniel: No. No, no, no, not after Devon got hurt. I'm not taking the same chance with you.

Kevin: Do we know what we're gonna tell her dad?

Neil: Tell whose dad what? What's going on, y'all?

Daniel: I brought lily so she'd be safe.

Neil: Safe from what?

Kevin: I'm gonna-- I'm gonna go call cane.

Lily: Um, dad, someone broke into our house.

Neil: You're kidding me. Are you all right?

Lily: Yeah, I'm fine. I'm fine.

Neil: What about Devon?

Daniel: We're all fine.

Lily: I wasn't home, and Devon came in last-minute while they were still ransacking the place, and they... knocked him over the head, but he's okay.  

Neil: They knocked him over the head? Are you--are you sure he's okay? He could have a concussion or something.

Lily: No, he had a really bad headache, but he wasn't out of it or anything.

Daniel: Look, I don't want her to be alone. I was wondering if maybe she could stay with you tonight.

Neil: Where are you going?

Daniel: I gotta go help Kevin.

Neil: Helping Kevin is more important than my daughter's safety?

Daniel: It's for her safety.

Lily: Listen, can we please not argue, please?

Neil: Um, you want to go grab a bite to eat?

Lily: Yes, thank you.

Neil: Come on.

Daniel: I'll call you later.

(Cell phone ringing)

Daniel: What?

Kevin: Dude, it's me. Cane is here.

Cane: Amber put you up to this.

Kevin: Do you really think we'd go along with a prank this huge?

Cane: Yes.

Daniel: Well, we're serious. I realize I'm not your favorite person, but you really think I'd want to tick you off even more?

Cane: She wasn't kidnapped.

Daniel: Fine. If you don't believe me...

Cane: "We have Amber. Get the money. Await further instructions. No cops." Oh, please, you really think that some hoon wrote this?

Kevin: Amber was crashing with me, and she hasn't been seen since I found that-- no e-mails, no phone calls, nothing.

Cane: Well, that's not like amber.

Daniel: This isn't a joke. We need your help.

Cane: Just relax. It's all a bunch of bull. There's no reason someone's gonna kidnap her.

Daniel: Say there is.

Cane: Well, there isn't. All she's doing is trying to get my grandmother's money.

Kevin: Oh, what does that have to do with anything?

Cane: Everything. It's part of her game.

Daniel: What is your problem?

Cane: My problem is that she's a liar, and I wouldn't be surprised if you run it with her.

Daniel: I don't know what you're talking about.

Kevin: Amber faked their marriage, tricked him.

Daniel: What?

Cane: How long you known about this?

Kevin: Not that long. She said that you guys had a fight about it or something, and she was crying her eyes out.

Daniel: I didn't know anything about this.

Kevin: Wait. You know what? If she could fake a marriage, she could fake a kidnapping.

Daniel: My brother-in-law got knocked unconscious. My place got trashed. That wasn't a fake. These people, they want the money.

Cane: Back it up, back it up. W-what money you talking, what?

Daniel: How much do you know about Plum?

Cane: Guy served in Iraq, and he's one of her ex-boyfriends.

Kevin: When he died, he had a suitcase full of cash. We have no idea what it was for or where it came from.

Cane: And where is it now?

Daniel: Buried it.

Kevin: Amber could have faked the kidnapping, taken the cash.

Daniel: She wouldn't do that.

Cane: She would do anything for money.

Kevin: She hasn't been honest with us from the beginning.

Daniel: You know what? I'm gonna prove that the money's still there. We're gonna go, we're gonna dig it up, because whoever has Amber, they're not gonna hand her over until we hand it over.

Neil: Hi. So, Lily, do you need any help cleaning up your house?

Lily: No, we can't until they dust for prints. And the detective said that we should, uh, change the lock on our door.

Neil: You know, he's absolutely right. I want you to do that first thing tomorrow morning, all right? And if you need any money, you let me know.

Lily: Yeah, I'll pay you back.

Neil: I know you will. You always do. I gotta tell you, though, I'm very worried about Devon. Do you know if he's had a chance to see a doctor yet?

Lily: No, he left so fast 'cause he was gonna be late for a meeting.

Neil: Yeah. You know what? I'm gonna step outside and give him a quick call, see how he's feeling, all right?

Lily: No, Dad.

Neil: What?

Lily: Can you please just stay here? Please?

Neil: Of course, Baby, anything. I'm right here. I'm right here.

Lily: I just don't understand why everything is so messed up.

Neil: Talk to me, Lily.

Lily: What's the point? It's never gonna get better.

Neil: Did Daniel hurt you?

Lily: No, not like you think. It's just that my life is just such a mess... and I don't know what to do anymore.

Phyllis: You're not going away on a photo shoot with my husband.

Sharon: Hello to you, too.

Phyllis: Do you understand me?

Sharon: It's not your decision to make, Phyllis. Nick and I work together.

Phyllis: And you'd like there to be a lot more, wouldn't you?

Sharon: In case you haven't noticed, I'm a happily married woman.

Phyllis: Yeah, a fact you conveniently forget whenever you're within 15 feet of my husband.

Sharon: Oh, I'm sorry. Was I out in the hallway kissing Nick, and I didn't realize it? No, I don't think that I was. We were talking business.

Phyllis: Your flirting is pathetic.

Sharon: Your desperation is unattractive.

Phyllis: Keep away from my husband.

Sharon: Don't tell me what to do. You're making it really easy for me to testify against you.

Phyllis: I'm sorry, does Jack know that you're going away with my husband?

Sharon: Why don't you call him, Phyllis? Find out.

Jack: I want to talk to you about this excavation, Victor. I am paying people to stand around and do nothing.

Victor: Not my problem.

Jack: Those old buildings have to go.

Victor: I have rethought my position. If you want to attract tourists, I suggest you keep those historical buildings.

Jack: Those historical buildings are falling apart faster than your marriage. We need the casino. I'm building it to bring the people in.

Victor: How do you think your constituents will feel... if they find out that their senator is building a casino?

Jack: They knew that when they voted me into office.

Victor: Really?

Jack: You're losing your edge.

Jack: I must say, you have come a long way from posting Nikki's stripping videos on the internet.

David: Mm-hmm. I must be good at what I do.

Jack: You must be. Worked your way into her company. Congratulations. Oh, and my condolences.

Victor: And by the way, one question-- why didn't you prevent Katherine from buying Jabot?

Michael: Well, she got Jack to sell her the company at a low price. There was nothing I could do.

Victor: You were supposed to talk her out of it.

Michael: You know how determined she is. Once she's made up her mind, there's no talking her out of it.

Victor: This is not how you and I planned this to go. We were supposed to bury Jack, remember?

Michael: I want to see that happen more than you, believe me.

Victor: Why do I doubt that? You had the leverage. Had it become known that Katherine bought Jabot, she would have been liable.

Michael: I pointed that out to her, amongst other things. Katherine knew what she was getting into. I pushed as hard as I could. If I pushed any harder, she would have gotten herself a new attorney.

Victor: I hold you responsible.

Phyllis: I thought you wanted that, um, drink that your son always asks for.

Nick: No, I already had one.

Phyllis: Oh.

Nick: My limit is one a day. Do you, uh, need anything?

Phyllis: Um, yes, that--I--

Nick: The different.

Phyllis: The different sugar, yeah.

Nick: Got it, okay.

Sharon: Pass the cinnamon.

Nick: (Chuckles) you don't use cinnamon.

Sharon: I do now. I do a lot of things that I never used to.

Nick: Really?

Sharon: Mm-hmm?

Nick: Like what?

Sharon: Mm, okay, I... I eat cold pizza for breakfast sometimes. Don't tell Noah that.

Nick: Risky.

Sharon: Yeah.

Nick: I won't. What else?

Sharon: I, um, I nude sunbathe sometimes.

Nick: Where?

Sharon: Well, you're just gonna have to imagine that, like I imagine you.

Nick: How do you imagine me?

Sharon: Well, okay, picture this-- Nick Newman in a black and yellow feathered cape and a red and yellow headdress.

(Both laugh)

Nick: The Polynesian paradise dance.

Sharon: Mm-hmm. Yes. You were crowned right over there. One of the highlights of your life.

Nick: You know, it really was. You, uh, wore your hair differently back then. It was kind of...

Lily: I just don't want to do this anymore. I can't handle it. It's like I wish I could just walk away and forget about everything.

Neil: I know. I know what you're saying. You can't just forget about it, but you can walk away. And you deserve better, you hear me?

Lily: Dad, it just hurts so much. And I keep thinking, how did this happen to me? I thought I was smarter than that. And sometimes I just want to... I want to kill Daniel. I want to kill him, and I want to put him through all the stuff that he put me through, and I want to make him feel as bad as I do, but I can't. I can't.

Neil: I know. Honey, Honey, Honey. You're a very smart young lady, all right? And I know what it's like when you tell yourself, "I'll stop tomorrow. Just one more day." But it doesn't happen, you know? I mean, you're wracked with guilt. Um, you know that you're letting down your friends and your family. You're hurting your loved ones. That doesn't even matter. Hey, if it hadn't been for you and your mother helping me to realize what's really important in life, I don't believe I'd be sober today.

Lily: I mean, Daniel is lucky that he still has his job. He's hanging on by a thread at school. And every time something happens, I think it can't get any worse. Then something else happens.

Neil: I want you and Devon to come and stay with me for a while. I want you out of that place. You hear me?

Lily: What about Daniel?

Neil: What about Daniel? He needs help--not the kind of help that you can give him. I'm not gonna let you sacrifice your life for a husband like that.

Lily: But he says he wants to change.

Neil: Yeah, I know he does, and if he means it, then he'll figure his own way out of this mess, won't he? He'll prove what he says.

Lily: You're right.

Neil: Of course I'm right. I'm your daddy. And I'll just bet... Daniel hasn't told you everything.

Lily: What do you mean?

Neil: Whoever broke into your apartment... probably connected to your husband.

Daniel: It's gone. Every last dollar is gone.

Jack: My associates are going over the methane code for Clear Springs. The architect has been notified and is working to incorporate any changes.

Nikki: It's gonna be a little trickier with the older buildings.

Jack: Well, that's not my problem, that's yours. I'm not spending another dime on that. You and your husband can argue about that for a while.

Nikki: Hey, you're lucky to still be involved in this project at all. If you hadn't sold Jabot to Katherine when you did--

Jack: Um, when did you and your husband get this fantasy that Jabot and I were in any way linked? I had nothing to do with the selling of that company.

Nikki: Oh, yes. Hi, David.

David: Sorry I'm late.

Jack: One more question. When did you separate from your husband? Was it before or after you got caught kissing your, uh, colleague?

Nikki: I believe it was shortly after your wife was subpoenaed to testify about her affair.

David: Hold on, Jack. Let's get this on record. I'm sure the good people of your district would love to hear what their not-so-good senator has to say.

Nikki: Ooh, good one. Bye.

(Cell phone snaps closed)

Nikki: Ugh. This development is gonna be a nightmare.

Neil: My goodness.

Lily: Um, the police came. And then we waited for hours for them to come take fingerprints.

Neil: Yeah, they'll come back tomorrow. You want me to help you find anything?

Lily: No, I got it, thanks.

Neil: Sure.

Neil: Hello, Devon, it's, uh, your father. Um, your sister told me what happened. I hope you're okay. She's gonna come and spend the night with me, and I'd really like you to do the same. So when you get this message, then call me back right away, all right? Oh, and by the way, um, stay away from Daniel.

Kevin: If anyone has a greedy streak, it's your wife.

Cane: Oh, hang on a second, she was never my wife. And secondly, did anybody else see where you buried the money?

Daniel: No.

Cane: Okay, so if you didn't take it and you didn't take it--

Kevin: Then she could've written the note. She was all freaked out your marriage was falling apart.

Cane: Kevin, there was no marriage, okay? Look, my guess is that she's taken the cash and she's run off and now she's playing the three of us. It's simple.

Daniel: I don't know why we're just assuming the worst about her. This could've been someone who was after Plum or someone who just knew amber.

Kevin: Okay, fine, fine, let's just say that somebody did force her to give up the money. Where is she? Did they let her go? Did they-- did they kill her?

Daniel: Okay, I'm not saying that she hasn't made her fair share of mistakes, but what if this is really, you know, really happening? What if she's really in trouble? Shouldn't we at least check it out?

Jack: Well, hello, you two.

Nick: Hey.

Jack: So did you enjoy the meeting?

Nick: Oh, yeah, I couldn't wait to get out of there.

Jack: Feel like you're up to speed on everything yet?

Nick: Pretty much.

Jack: Listen, you, your mother and I need to get together to discuss this excavation plan.

Nick: Okay.

[Phyllis imagining]

Phyllis: That's a nice tie.

Jack: Oh, thanks.

Phyllis: You're welcome. I have great taste. I bought it for you.

Jack: Did you?

Phyllis: Yeah, I did. On our trip to Virginia.

Jack: Oh, the, uh, sightseeing trip that never quite happened.

Phyllis: That's right.

Jack: Who could forget?

Phyllis: I didn't forget. We stayed in the hotel the whole time. There were no sights to be seen.

[Phyllis kisses Jack]

Nick: Hey! Hey! What the hell's the matter with you?! That's my wife!

[The elevator door opens and Phyllis comes back to reality]

Nick: Even if the excavation is done carefully, there's no telling how it'll effect the downtown buildings.

Victor: Your first allegiance is to Newman’s investment.

Nick: And what about Mom's properties?

Victor: Your mother is emotionally fixated on a bunch of old buildings that should've been razed more than 20 years ago. If she wants to be on her own in business without taking my advice, so let it be. Let her fall flat on her behind. One thing I can assure you of, we'll pick up those properties for next to nothing.

Nick: If you wanna go to war with Mom, leave me out of it.

Victor: Son... she threw down the gauntlet, not I. And very soon you're gonna have to make up your mind. You're gonna have to decide what's best for you and the company.

Nick: That's not gonna happen. I won't choose between you and Mom.

Victor: Mark my word-- sooner or later, you'll have to.

David: Did I overhear you say that Jack had something to do with the sale of Jabot?

Nikki: Well, that's not really public knowledge, but as part of the settlement, Jack agreed to have nothing to do with Jabot. He signed something that said that.

David: How the hell did he circumvent that?

Nikki: He bought a legitimate business, used it as a front, but we were onto him, so he made sure that he sold before Victor came back to town.

David: So Ji Min was his front man?

Nikki: Oh, absolutely. But he claims he had no idea that that arrangement was illegal.

David: I can't believe that didn't come out before the election. You would've won by a landslide.

Nick: I think I left my phone in here. There we go. What?

Phyllis: You didn't want to go to the trial, did you? Michael guilted you into it, didn't he?

Nick: Michael told me what I needed to hear-- that I should be there.

Phyllis: Yeah. You should be there. We had the most passionate relationship. And every night before I go to bed I pray that when I wake up you're gonna remember it. But instead you just look at me like I'm some I.R.S. agent that you have to tolerate.

Nick: I wanna do the right thing.

Phyllis: Right. Thank you, that's very sweet. We had so much passion. We had so much fun. We had great sex. We finished each other's sentences and we'd talk for hours and hours. We'd have weekend movie marathons. Did I--did I mention we had great sex?

Nick: You did.

Phyllis: Yeah. We did. It's like I'm some moral cross you have to bear. You don't remember that you ever loved me, do you?

Nick: I told you that I'll be there for you. And I will be.

Phyllis: Um... that's okay. You don't have to. I don't want you there. Everything you do for me is out of obligation. Do me a favor and stay away from the trial.

Neil: Hey, Sweetheart, come on, let's go. We'll get the rest later, all right?

Lily: Okay, I'll be right there.

Neil: You all right?

Lily: Yeah.

Daniel: Any messages?

Kevin: No.

Daniel: Maybe one of your neighbors saw something?

Kevin: Yeah, I can ask. So what's the deal? You gonna help us look for Amber or what?

Cane: All right. But only until we figure out what's really going on.

Daniel: Okay. Let's do this.

[Kevin gets his gun out of a book]

Kevin: I'm ready.

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

Adrian: You're putting Amber's life in more danger than it already might be.

Lauren: Did Nick have to work?

Phyllis: No, he did not. He's just not coming. By the way, he's not coming to the trial tomorrow either.

Neil: Stay away from Lily! Otherwise you're gonna have to answer to me!
