Phyllis: I can't go back in there.

Michael: Come back! Come back!

Phyllis: I can't do it.

Michael: Listen to me. Listen, you have got to calm down--calm down!

Phyllis: Shh! I can't go back in there. I'm gonna go crazy if I go back in there.

Michael: All right, all right, listen to me. I don't ever wanna hear you say that word again.

Phyllis: Okay, how about this? I'm not gonna go back in there. I won't go back in there.

Michael: Okay, and number one, as your attorney, I insist that you go back into that courtroom, because failure to do so while you are a defendant standing trial will only land you in a bigger pile of trouble than you're already in.

Phyllis: I should be with my son. Please, I need to be with my son.

Michael: Second, as your friend, you have got to calm down. Because you're not helping your case, yourself or your son by freaking out.

Phyllis: His friend was kidnapped. Who's to say he's not next? How can I not freak out?

Michael: Listen to me, I'm just as worried about my brother, but we are stuck here. And the sooner you focus on keeping yourself out of jail, the sooner we can get out of here.

Phyllis: I can't anymore. It doesn't matter. It's not about me anymore. It's about Daniel. Oh, Daniel, pick up! Please, pick up!

(Cell phone ringing)

Daniel: It's my mom. Can I get this?

Maggie: Yeah, go ahead.

Daniel: Hey, Mom. No, yeah, I'm fine. How's the trial going?

Kevin: So the note says to get rid of the cops and the fed.

Paul: Which means he's monitoring you.

Cane: They didn't say anything about Paul.

Paul: Probably doesn't know I've been hired yet.

Maggie: Yeah, it's best to keep it that way. And where'd you find the note?

Kevin: Um, in the tip jar at the coffeehouse. It could've been anyone.

Paul: What about the security cameras?

Maggie: Yeah, we've got people at the precinct that are checking out that footage.

Cane: How are we getting Amber back?

Paul: I'll keep an eye out at the club while the police survey from a distance. When the kidnapper picks up the cash, I'll signal the cops to make the arrest.

Ji Min: Sounds cut and dry.

Bonacheck: And you're leaving marked bills?

Maggie: Yep, it's being put together right now.

Cane: I'll make the drop.

Jill: No, Cane, it's too dangerous.

Kevin: The note was left for me. I should do it.

Daniel: I'm her friend.

Cane: I said, I'll make the drop.

Nick: You nervous?

Sharon: Why do I feel like I should be humming a funeral march when I pace the halls here?

Nick: Impending sense of doom. It's a side-effect of testifying before a jury.

Sharon: Yeah, I guess it would be worse if I were the one on trial, right?

Nick: Yeah. You ever see a pack of lions hunt down a gazelle?

Sharon: Great. Yeah, now I'm really looking forward to this.

Nick: Yeah, it's good times.

Sharon: You know, I really don't like that I have to testify about something so personal. And my affair with Brad is none of their business.

Nick: Yeah, I know.

Sharon: What if I say the wrong thing? I mean, what if I really mess up and then the lawyers rip me to shreds? Gosh, I don't know why I'm so self-conscious about what I have to say.

Nick: Well, for whatever it's worth, I'm not gonna think any less of you.

Sharon: I'm glad you don't remember any of that time. It was just... it was a bad time for our marriage. And I wish I could forget it, too.

Nick: Then just forget it. Don't worry about that right now. No judgments, remember?

Sharon: Thanks, Nick.

Nick: Sharon, you're a good person. I'll always love and respect you. That's never gonna change.

Jack: I wish there was something I could do to make this all go away.

Sharon: Oh, thank you. So do I.

Nikki: Oh, Neil, listen, I wanted to move our meeting up. Is 2:00 okay for you?

Neil: No, it's not okay. I'm actually due in court.

Nikki: My condolences. I have to show up myself later.

Neil: Well, I have no condolences for you.

Nikki: What is that supposed to mean?

Neil: Nikki, I think it's pretty self-explanatory. You set this whole thing up. You kick me off the board so you can take my place.

Nikki: Is that what you think? No!

Neil: It's not going to happen.

Phyllis: Oh, my baby girl. Look at her. Oh, isn't she... oh, Sweetie, come here. Come here, Sweetie. Oh, gosh, what a pretty girl. What a pretty girl. Are you tired? Are you tired, baby girl?

Lauren: How's it going?

Michael: She's not focusing. If she doesn't stay positive, we're not gonna win this.

Phyllis: Everything is okay. We're gonna be fine.

Michael: I don't know what she's gonna do if she loses that baby.

Phyllis: That's right. This whole court thing is a joke.

Lauren: Listen to me, you are a great friend and an amazing lawyer. And if anyone can get her through this, it's you.

Michael: Thanks. The pep talker needed a pep talk.

Lauren: Yeah. It's all about teamwork, right, Baby?

Michael: Yeah. Oh, okay. Phyllis, um... the recess is about over.

Lauren: I'm meeting the babysitter out front.

Phyllis: Thank you for bringing her. Just what I needed.

Daniel: Why are we all just hanging around? I mean, the longer they have Amber, the more freaked out I get.

Cane: Well, you got her into this mess, didn't you?

Daniel: Oh, first she's scamming us, now it's my fault.

Kevin: All right, look, look, look, look, look, the note says to put the money in a G.C.U. duffel bag, right? There's a sports store on Cedar. Do you want me to pick one up?

Cane: No, I'll get it on the way.

Jill: You know what? I can't do this right now. Call me later. Thanks. This is so crazy. I do not want my son putting himself in this kind of danger.

Ji Min: Listen, he's gonna be surrounded by police if anything goes wrong. I don't think you're gonna change his mind about this one.

Jill: And what is Amber thinking, burying all that money on the estate?

Ji Min: She was thinking she wouldn't get caught.

Bonacheck: Well, my guys have the information and, uh, we'll put out a trace on our end as well.

Jill: Are you sure you wanna do this?

Cane: Yes, mum, yes.

Ji Min: All right, how's this gonna work?

Paul: Okay, I'm headed to the club. You come by with the cash after an hour and I'll watch it from there.

Maggie: We've got undercover police stationed at the buildings surrounding the G.C.A.C. They're ready to move on Paul's signal.

Jill: I'm not getting a good feeling about this.

Maggie: We won't let anything happen to your son.

Paul: I'll be at the club.

Bonacheck: And I'll be at my hotel.

Maggie: I'll be here.

Daniel: What do you want us to do?

Paul: You just go about your business as usual, just like they told you to do.

Ji Min: Kevin, don't have a meeting about that proposed flash site you talked about?

Daniel: Wait a minute, we're just supposed to stand around here and act like everything's fine? I mean, I don't even work here. I can't just stand around and do nothing.

Maggie: Well, I'm afraid that's exactly what you're gonna need to do. Otherwise Amber could get hurt.

Cane: You heard the lady.

Daniel: Why don't we go over to the coffeehouse and take a look at the security footage?

Maggie: Fine.

Bonacheck: Why don't I just follow you over? I could use a cup of coffee.

Kevin: Great.

Jill: Sweetheart, listen to me, I trust your instincts, I really do, but promise me you will take care of yourself.

Cane: Mom, I'll be safe, all right? I promise. Okay, I promise.

Jill: All right, you call me as soon as you're done.

Cane: All right, okay, I have to go.

Jill: All right.

Ji Min: Cane, take my card, just in case.

Cane: All right, thank you. Don't worry.

Jill: Oh, I'll worry.

David: Hi.

Nikki: Hey.

David: Ah, you could smell me coming, couldn't you? Damn cologne. It was a gift. It could kill a date in 20 seconds.

Nikki: Well, I am on my way to the courthouse. It's my turn to testify.

David: You're testifying now? Hold on. Yes, hi, listen, uh, cancel my appointments for today. That's right. Reschedule for next week. Perfect. Thanks.

Nikki: Why did you do that?

David: What, you didn't think I was gonna let you go it alone, did you? Even if I do smell like a teenager on the prowl.

Nikki: Well, I happen to like it.

David: Well, good, 'cause you're stuck with me. Come on, let's go.

Bailiff: Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help you God?

Sharon: I do.

Judge: Have a seat.

Heather: Ms. Abbott, were you in New York on the nights of June 2nd and June 3rd, 2006?

Sharon: Yes.

Heather: And what was the purpose of your visit?

Sharon: Business.

Heather: And was Mr. Carlton in New York, as well?

Sharon: Brad was scheduled to go to Boston on business, but his flight got rerouted to New York.

Michael: Objection! Irrelevant.

Judge: Sustained. Just answer the question, Mrs. Abbott.

Heather: Was Mr. Carlton in New York as well?

Sharon: Yes.

Heather: And, uh, you two stayed in the same hotel suite, correct?

Michael: Objection! Leading the witness.

Heather: Your honor, I am simply establishing the affair that Phyllis Newman allegedly blackmailed Brad Carlton about, to verify that such an incident happened.

Michael: What you are doing is testifying.

Judge: Overruled. Answer the question.

Sharon: We had separate rooms at the hotel.

Heather: But that night you slept in the same room, correct?

Michael: Objection! She's leading again.

Heather: I'll rephrase. Where did the two of you sleep that night?

Sharon: We slept in the same room at the hotel.

Heather: And did you two engage in any other activity that night?

Sharon: Yes. We had sex.

Heather: You had sex?

Michael: Your honor, this is not only irrelevant, it's ridiculous.

Sharon: Yes, we had sex.

Heather: What was your marital status at the time?

Sharon: I was married to someone else.

Heather: And Mr. Carlton?

Sharon: He was also married.

Heather: And the state of your marriage at that time?

Michael: This is absolutely and completely irrelevant to this proceeding, your honor.

Judge: And I will allow it, for what it's worth.

Sharon: I'd just found out that my husband had an affair.

Heather: With the defendant?

Sharon: Yes.

Michael: Objection! Counsel is leading the witness. And it hardly matters why Mrs. Abbott had the affair, only that the affair itself took place, which the witness has already admitted.

Judge: Sustained.

Heather: When you were in New York, the morning after you had sex with Mr. Carlton, what did you have for breakfast?

Sharon: I don't remember.

Heather: You don't remember? Perhaps the room service ticket will refresh your memory. Mrs. Abbott, would you please read the room service charges?

Sharon: "Denver omelet, no cheese, basket of croissants, orange juice, coffee."

Heather: So enough food for two you might say? Did Mr. Carlton eat with you?

Sharon: Yes.

Heather: How did Phyllis Newman discover the affair?

Michael: Objection! Calls for speculation.

Sharon: She overheard Brad and me discussing it.

Judge: And how do you know this, Mrs. Abbott?

Sharon: She told me.

Heather: And what did she do with that information?

Sharon: She threatened to tell Brad's wife about the affair if Brad didn't vote to put Neil Winters in on the Newman board.

Michael: Objection! Hearsay. The threat in question, if such a threat ever did occur, was not made directly to Mrs. Abbott.

Judge: Did she say this to you, Mrs. Abbott?

Sharon: Brad told me that's what she said.

Judge: Sustained. Jury will ignore the last part of Mrs. Abbott's testimony.

Heather: Mrs. Abbott, did Ms. Newman ever say anything to you regarding the affair?

Sharon: Yes.

Heather: Yes. What did she say?

Sharon: She said her only goal was getting a business project funded. She said... if I valued my husband's campaign and Brad's marriage, I would convince Brad to vote her way.

Nick: This is all my fault.

Michael: What's your fault?

Nick: All of it. All of it. If I hadn't been running around on my wife, Sharon never would've turned to Brad and there would be no trial.

Michael: Well, unless I've missed something, you didn't force them to sleep together, nor did you force Phyllis to use the whole situation against Brad. Nicholas, we're all responsible for our actions.

Nick: I don't wanna go back in there and hear anymore.

Michael: All right, listen to me--

Nick: But I'm going to. Because Phyllis doesn't deserve to be separated from her daughter.

Paul: Testing, one, two, three, testing. Do you copy me?

Maggie: Got you loud and clear.

Paul: There are a bunch of athletes here, girls from the, uh, G.C.U. cheering squad. I can understand why they wanted us to use that duffel bag.

Maggie: All right, they tried to make it as hard as possible. We should've seen that one coming.

Paul: Yeah, really. Cane just got here. He's moving through the restaurant. Cane's put the bag down. And he's leaving. Now this is where the fun begins.

Michael: Ms. Abbott, your daughter died two years ago, correct?

Sharon: Yes, it was... just over two years now.

Michael: The loss of a child. That must've devastated you.

Sharon: Yes, it did.

Michael: Is that when your marriage started falling apart?

Sharon: That's right.

Heather: Objection! Irrelevant.

Judge: You opened the door, Counselor. I'll allow it.

Michael: Well, I understand. Statistics are against a couple who have lost a child. They rarely manage to stay together. And I can understand you seeking solace with another man.

Heather: Your honor?

Judge: A question, Mr. Baldwin?

Michael: Is it true that you have shared an emotionally intimate relationship with Brad Carlton for years?

Sharon: Yes, we're friends.

Michael: Oh, well, this friendship, as you term it, was upsetting to various members of Mr. Carlton's extended clan?

Sharon: Yeah, I suppose you could say that.

Michael: Well, his wife now his ex-wife, his father-in-law, his mother-in-law, his brother-in-law. Is it fair to say that they were all upset?

Sharon: Yes, I suppose.

Michael: So any number of people could've approached Mr. Carlton, expressing their displeasure?

Heather: Your honor, counsel is speculating. If he wishes to call these people, he knows how to issue a subpoena.

Judge: Sustained.

Michael: Then I'll move on. Um, Ms. Abbott, in the years that you have known your friend Mr. Carlton, have you ever had the opportunity to observe him in the business world?

Sharon: Of course I have.

Michael: He is an astute businessman who takes pride in his work. Is that accurate?

Sharon: I would say so.

Michael: Well, are we then to believe that a high-ranking executive would purposely vote someone onto his board of directors who might weaken the business? And by weaken I mean, reducing everybody's profits, because, you know, the bottom line of business is money. So are you saying Brad Carlton-- a smart businessman as you've already said-- would put someone on his company's board who would be bad for business?

Sharon: Yes.

Michael: Yes?

Sharon: Yes, if his family and his friend were threatened, he would. And he did.

Michael: So are you saying that Mr. Winters does not deserve his board seat?

Sharon: No. Well, yes, I mean--

Michael: A simple yes or no answer would suffice, but I believe I just heard both.

Jack: Neil?

Neil: Hey, Jack.

Jack: Hey. So you ready to take the stand?

Neil: As ever. I didn't expect to see you here, though.

Jack: If I had my way, I'd be in there right now supporting my wife and my friend.

Neil: Let me guess, you couldn't decide which side to sit on?

Jack: Sharon didn't want me in there while she was testifying. Difficult enough talking about her affair, never mind in front of the people it affected most.

Ji Min: He's here.

Jill: What? Oh, thank God! Oh, thank God! Oh, Sweetie!

Cane: I told you not to worry. I told you. So what's the deal with the money now?

Maggie: They haven't picked it up yet.

Ji Min: That's damn bizarre, isn't it?

Cane: No, no, no, no, no, it shouldn't be there anymore. They should've picked it up. There's something wrong.

Phyllis: I'm gonna be sick. That was a bad idea.

Michael: Well, if you're referring to the alleged blackmailing, as if that had happened, it was a bad idea, but you're about four months late on that revelation.

Phyllis: No, I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about having Nick sit right there. That--that was a bad idea. Definitely. I mean, he's heard every horrible thing I've done. I mean, it's not really igniting all those warm and fuzzy feelings that I was hoping he'd have inside for me.

Lauren: Phyllis, don't even think about that right now. You're doing great. Michael's doing great. Concentrate on that.

Phyllis: Okay, okay, um, my son is involved in a felony. My husband is disgusted by me. And I'm going to jail! I'm doing great!

Michael: All right! It looks good to the jurors that you have a supportive husband behind you.

Sharon: Uh, I don't blame you if you hate me. I know that your said you wouldn't change your mind, but after what you just heard in there, I would understand if you did.

Nick: Sharon, I don't hate you. I could never hate you. I hate me.

Sharon: Why?

Nick: I have everything with you. And I threw it all away. I don't what the hell I was thinking.

Sharon: Well, it-- it wasn't your fault, Nick. You know, it was nobody's fault. You just don't remember what it was like back then.

Nick: I wish nobody did. I wish I could go back and erase the last two years of everybody's life and go back to the way it was before I lost my mind and gave up the best thing I ever had.

Sharon: So do I. But you can't.

Nick: You have nothing to feel badly about. I destroyed us. I will never forgive myself for it.

Jack: Hey, you. Ready to go?

Sharon: Yeah, yeah, I'm really glad this is over.

Nikki: Oh, Sharon, Jack.

Sharon: I just went through hell in there. Absolute hell. And you are the one who's responsible for this nightmare of a trial, Nikki.

Paul: Bag's still here.

Maggie: Copy.

Ji Min: That's a hell of a long time to leave $700,000 lying around.

(Cell phone ringing)

Maggie: Excuse me.

Cane: There was that cheerleading squad with the same bags staying at the club.

Ji Min: They could've switched the bags. Paul, are you sure it's the same one?

Paul: I'm sure.

Jill: So what do we do now?

Maggie: Okay, we've got a big problem. Your friend Carson is no longer in his room. He managed to give everyone the slip.

Cane: What?

Maggie: Paul, you copy that?

Paul: Yeah, I got that. I'll keep an eye out for him.

Amber: Oh, come on! Ugh! Okay... okay, I need some help. A pencil! A pencil! (Gasps)

Michael: Now that the prosecution's side is done, we can show they have no case.

Phyllis: Hey, Neil. Thanks for coming.

Neil: Phyllis, I didn't have a choice. I was subpoenaed as a defense witness.

Phyllis: Well, then I'm glad we got to you first.

Michael: All right, when you're up there, just remember to relax, answer all of the questions honestly. And for goodness sake, don't elaborate unless asked.

Neil: Got it. I want you to know this isn't a favor.

Phyllis: Got it. Then I guess the best defense is a good offense.

Ji Min: I'll take care of it. Babe, I have to take this conference call. You gonna be okay?

Jill: Yeah, fine, go ahead.

Maggie: Exactly. I want you to check Indigo, the bars, the coffee shop, anyplace that's open for business. Right, get back to me. Thanks.

Jill: What is that?

Cane: It's a phone. There's no invoice. There's no note.

Maggie: May I, uh, see that? It's a throwaway. I doubt we'll get a trace on this. (Cell phone ringing)

Cane: Hello?

Carson: Are you trying to get your wife killed?

Cane: Carson?

Jill: What's he saying?

Cane: Listen, I can barely hear you.

Carson: I said no police, no feds. Did I really need to say no private detectives? You must really think I'm stupid.

Cane: No, no, of course I don't, no.

Carson: We're gonna do this again. This is your last chance or blondie goes bye-bye.

Cane: All right, listen to me, don't hurt her. I'll do anything you want, okay?

Carson: Get in your car and start driving.

Cane: All right, where am I going?

Jill: No, Cane, no!

Carson: I'll give you directions as you go. Go to the club, pick up the money. I'll call you in 20 minutes. Have it by then.

Cane: All right, I'll-- all right, I'm leaving. Okay.

Carson: And I mean it, no authorities of any kind, or your wife is on the receiving end of a 9 millimeter.

Cane: He wants me to go and get the money. Then he's gonna call me back with further instructions. Okay.

Maggie: Okay, I'm gonna put a tail on you.

Cane: No! No! No, no cops. He already knows about Paul. I'm doing this alone, all right?

Michael: Mr. Winters, what is your current position at Newman Enterprises?

Neil: I am co-C.E.O.

Michael: Oh. And who promoted you to that position?

Neil: Mr. Victor Newman.

Michael: Ah, so the owner hand-picked you to run his company?

Neil: Yes.

Michael: And this is not the first time you have been appointed C.E.O., is that correct?

Neil: That is correct, yes.

Michael: So is it fair to say that Mr. Newman has confidence in your performance?

Neil: That is a fair statement.

Michael: What is your educational background, Mr. Winters?

Neil: I have an M.B.A. from Stanford University.

Michael: Stanford University. One of the most elite universities in the country. That's quite an accomplishment.

Heather: Objection. Counsel is testifying.

Judge: Sustained.

Michael: Did you get good grades at Stanford?

Neil: I graduated with top honors.

Michael: Top honors. Well, you're obviously an intelligent man, Mr. Winters. What made you run for the Newman board against Mrs. Newman?

Neil: I believed I was the more qualified candidate. I thought I would be a more productive board member for the corporation.

Michael: And do you believe that Brad Carlton voted for you on that basis?

Heather: Objection. Calls for speculation.

Michael: Uh, withdrawn. No further questions. Your witness.

Heather: Mr. Winters, isn't it true that you've been passed up for the board before?

Neil: Yes.

Heather: Once when Mr. Newman appointed his own son and once again when he appointed his son-in-law, brad Carlton, correct?

Neil: Yes.

Heather: Mm-hmm. Would you be, uh, able to tell me if there's any specific qualifications for the Newman board by the Newman bylaws?

Neil: Uh, I can't... recall.

Heather: Would you be surprised if it didn't require a Stanford business degree? Or even business experience?

Neil: It helps to have them.

Heather: Are you aware of how many relatives are on the board of the corporation? How many Newman relatives, that is?

Neil: There are three.

Heather: Three? That would be the entire family, correct?

Neil: All but Nikki.

Heather: And Brad was her son-in-law at the time that he was appointed instead of you, which would make him a family member, as well.

Neil: Yes, yes, to my knowledge.

Heather: Mr. Winters, I'm sorry to have to bring up this subject, but I understand your wife died recently.

Neil: Yes.

Heather: Could you please explain the circumstances of her death?

Neil: Well, there was a photo shoot for Newman Enterprises at a cliffside. And, uh, she got into an altercation with the defendant and tragically she fell over the side.

Heather: Why did this fight happen? Is there--is there any evidence of this fight?

Michael: Objection! Calls for speculation.

Judge: The witness should answer the question.

Neil: Um... it was about the blackmail. Phyllis and Sharon were arguing, my wife stepped in and ultimately--

Michael: Objection! Objection! Hearsay. Mr. Winters was not present at this fight.

Heather: Mr. Winters, isn't it true, however, that the people involved in the fight spoke to you specifically about it?

Neil: Yes, everyone except-- everyone except my wife. Phyllis and Sharon did talk to me about it.

Heather: And would you say from what Phyllis Newman told you that your wife died because of her blackmail?

Neil: Yes.

Michael: Objection! Objection! My client has not been charged with murder or involuntary manslaughter or anything to suggest that she is responsible for Drucilla winters' death. Now if counsel would like to charge my client, she should do so.

Heather: I'll withdraw the question. Thank you.

David: Just keep your answers short and to the point. Don't give the attorney any more than they've asked for.

Nikki: No elaboration. I got it.

David: Right, right, and don't let the attorney fluster you. They're gonna work really hard to knock you off your game. Okay, just keep in mind all those press conferences you did. You were cool. You were calm and you were direct.

Nikki: It sounds like you've done this a couple of times.

David: Well, I'm a campaign manager. I'm trained to make people seem convincing.

Nikki: I really do appreciate you being here. Oh, Neil, how did it go?

Neil: It was spectacular. Especially the part about my deceased wife.

Nikki: Oh, no. I'm so sorry that was brought up.

Neil: Aw, gimme a break. I hope Michael guts you like a trout.

Bailiff: Nikki Newman?

Daniel: Dude, seriously, how many tapes do you have? This is taking forever.

Kevin: Would you just chill? You have that list of people who have left tips already, right?

Daniel: Yeah, there was the hot blonde chick that I don't know, uh, the muscle guy who always orders the protein shakes, Ji Min, um, and the stoner guy, right? Where's Carson?

Kevin: There he is. There he is.

Daniel: Ooh, okay, zoom in, zoom in. Does he go near the tip jar?

Kevin: Give me a sec, will ya?

Daniel: He's standing right next to it!

Kevin: I can't see if he put anything in. The coffee machine's in the way. Here, let me try another angle.

Judge: Mrs. Newman, you've been called as a hostile witness. Counsel may ask you leading questions.

Nikki: I understand.

Michael: Ms. Newman, where did you get your masters degree?

Nikki: I don't have one.

Michael: You don't have one. Uh, bachelor's degree?

Nikki: No.

Michael: Did you at least graduate from high school?

Nikki: Yes, I did.

Michael: And you did work for a time as a stripper?

Heather: Objection! Is any of this relevant?

Michael: I'm merely trying to establish Ms. Newman's educational and business background.

Heather: Witnesses have already testified that there are no qualifications to be on the board.

Judge: Answer the question.

Nikki: Yes.

Michael: So you were a stripper. Do you have any business experience at all?

Nikki: I invested in Jabot Cosmetics.

Michael: Yes or no, please.

Nikki: Yes.

Michael: Oh. You were a member of the board of Jabot Cosmetics.

Nikki: Yes.

Michael: We all know what happened to that company.

Heather: Your honor?

Judge: Stick to questions, Counsel.

Michael: How did you become a member of the Jabot board?

Nikki: A stipulation through the investment I made.

Michael: So you're saying you bought yourself a seat?

Heather: Objection! He's badgering the witness.

Judge: Sustained. Counsel, find a new line of questioning.

Michael: Ms. Newman, you recently ran for public office, is that correct?

Nikki: Yes, it is.

Michael: Did you lose?

Nikki: Yes, I did.

Michael: Because of the damaging video of you kissing David Chow, your campaign manager?

Heather: Objection! Objection!

Michael: I withdraw the question. Ms. Newman, what is your opinion of Neil Winters?

Nikki: Um... he's a good man.

Michael: In business?

Nikki: Of course, yes. He's very intelligent.

Michael: Have you ever seen a video of Mr. Winters stripping or kissing someone he was not married to?

Heather: Objection! Again with the badgering.

Judge: Counsel, this is your last warning.

Michael: My apologies, your honor. Ms. Newman, have you ever seen Mr. Winters do anything to your knowledge that would bring scandal to the company?

Nikki: No.

Michael: And do you believe that any scandal is bad for the company? Even though that scandal may not be related to the business?

Nikki: Yes, I suppose.

Michael: And do you believe that it would be bad for business to appoint anyone to the board whose life is full of scandal, such as yourself? Or that any competent businessman may give pause before voting someone who attracts scandal onto their board?

Heather: Objection!

Michael: Withdrawn.

Ji Min: I'm sorry it took so long. Is everything okay?

Jill: No, everything's not okay. Cane is on his way to meet the kidnappers with the money. He doesn't want the police involved.

Ji Min: Wait, what?

Jill: Yeah.

Paul: Cane picked up the money. Any word yet?

Jill: No! Oh, Lord, I hate this.

Ji Min: Why did he not want anyone's help?

Jill: The kidnapper called. He had noticed Paul. So he wanted no authorities involved this time and Cane agreed to it. Maggie, put a tail on him, but I'm afraid that's gonna just add to the problems.

Ji Min: Look, he's just doing it to get back Amber, all right? I'd do the same to get you back.

Maggie: The officers tailing Cane lost him.

Jill: What do you mean they lost him?

Paul: Oh, great, so we have no idea where he is.

Daniel: Okay, this is a much better angle. There he is.

Kevin: There's the top of my head and he's about to order a drink.

Daniel: Okay. Did you just spit in his mug?

Kevin: Yeah.

Daniel: Dude, you sick little monkey. Are you kidding me? What is that, like a special you're running here?

Kevin: Yeah, reserved only for special customers.

Daniel: Ugh. Okay, and he's walking away. I didn't see him put anything in the tip jar.

Kevin: Well, I don't think he would tip me after the drink I just made for him.

Daniel: Okay, can you bring it back to before you turn around?

Kevin: Yeah.

Daniel: Okay, cool, stop. Yeah, right there. Stop, that's good. Wait a minute, was that money?

Kevin: I don't know, the image quality is pretty low. Let me see if I can put a filter through it. That looks like a dollar bill to me.

Daniel: That is so weird. I was certain that he was the kidnapper.

Cane: Amber!

[Cane sees Amber and Carson tied up]

Bonacheck: Hold it right there. Not another step. Drop the money.

Cane: Oh, you son of--

Bonacheck: Drop the money!

Cane: I trusted you.

Bonacheck: And I appreciate your cooperation. Now you've proven how much you love your wife. Let's see how much she loves you.

Lauren: Well, I don't think that could've gone any smoother.

Michael: (Chuckles)

Phyllis: I feel a lot better.

Michael: Well, Nikki looked so bad and Neil looked so good it would've been suspicious if Brad hadn't voted for him.

Lauren: And you, of course, were brilliant, my love.

Michael: Mmm.

Phyllis: Yes, you were. Listen, Nikki's embarrassment was worth it. I almost forget about the trial.

Michael: This should never have come to trial. There is not a single piece of evidence against you.

Nikki: How dare he imply that I'm bad for business? I own my own company! I hate that man! And if possible, I hate Phyllis even more.

David: All right, look, I'm sorry I had to rush out midway through, but I think I've got some very good news.

Nikki: I just thought you were mortified of the testimony.

David: No, no, no, I thought you did a great job. Look, even more important, I found a way to make sure that Phyllis goes to jail for a very long time.

Daniel: Are you done yet?

Kevin: Yeah, yeah, I just finished.

Daniel: Well, that's not a ransom note. It's a dollar bill.

Kevin: Let's just go forward a bit, see if there's anything else.

[Bonacheck drops a note in the tip jar]

Daniel: Stop! Stop! Stop right there! You see that?

Kevin: That's the ransom note.

Daniel: And that's Bonacheck! The treasury agent!

Cane: So this was all just a ruse to get us together?

Bonacheck: Cooperative and smart.

Amber: Why?!

Bonacheck: This is a test of your love. Do you love money more than your husband?

Amber: Of course not! I love Cane! I love you, Baby. I do. I don't know where the money is. I swear! You have to believe me.

Bonacheck: I don't. I guess you're gonna have to see your husband die for nothing.

Amber: No! No! No!

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

Maggie: Daniel and Kevin's G.P.S. just went out.

Paul: They're up to something.

Sharon: I just hope that Michael Baldwin doesn't go in there and razzle dazzle 'em so Phyllis gets off.

Nick: You aren't giving me a straight answer about anything that matters and I'm sick of it.
