Jack: So... how'd you sleep?

Sharon: Like someone who wasn't worried about being videotaped 24/7 by surveillance cameras. How about you?

Jack: About the same. I think home here is about the only place we won't find rogue cameras. Certainly that visit from Detective Sullivan didn't make me sleep any better.

Sharon: Yeah. Especially when asked about the timing of Ji Min's death.

Jack: Yeah, not exactly the way I wanna end a day.

Sharon: Well, should we read the newspapers, or should we just let the puppy use them?

Jack: You know what? After the last few days, no article is gonna make me feel any worse.

Sharon: Oh, don't underestimate the power of mediocre journalism.

Jack: Oh, here it is. Front page news.

Sharon: I will take the life and style section, please.

Jack: Oh.

Sharon: What?

Jack:  Some new household gadget catch your eye?

Sharon: "Secrets of a senator's wife"? "Sharon Abbott, wife of Senator Jack Abbott, stands by her man during his fraud scandal. And why wouldn't she want to protect her investment? Her only real skill seems to be moving from one high profile marriage to another."

Jack: What?

Sharon: "The model grew up in poverty and was pregnant in high school. Mrs. Abbott's support of her husband reeks of a desperate woman trying to hang onto the money she married into. While busy securing her fortune, her own daughter, Cassidy, was killed in a car accident after a night of partying." Oh, God, Jack!

Gloria: Oh, is that my beautiful grandson? Oh! Honey, look at those cheeks. Welcome home! Hey, Lauren. How's your mother?

Lauren: Fine. I'm gonna get Fen all set up.

Gloria: Your wife's mood has Joanna written all over it.

Michael: It's not her mother. It's mine. Have you released any, uh, illegal recordings lately?

Gloria: No.

Michael: No?

Gloria: Mnh-mnh.

Michael: Well, every TV station, newspaper, blog, a little kid with a tin can and some string in a playground is talking about Ji Min and Jack.

Gloria: Victor released it.

Michael: That is irrelevant.

Gloria: Oh, stop with the lawyer-speak.

Michael: It is common speak! And refers to things utterly and completely irrelevant to the point I am making! Where did Victor get that DVD? From you!

Gloria: (Laughs) and he promised my name would never be mentioned.

Michael: That's reassuring. Except now Victor has something on you. He did not keep your name out of it because he finds you charming.

Gloria: Michael, don't be such a worry wart.

Michael: You listen to me. I know that man better than you do.

Gloria: (Chuckles)

Michael: You sleep with one eye open.

Gloria: Oh, now you're really being silly. I'm gonna go see my grandson.

Michael: I wouldn't go in there until Lauren comes out. She's not quite in the mood to socialize. It was a painfully quiet ride home.

Gloria: What did you do?

Lauren: He didn't ship you back to Detroit when he had the chance.

Victor: Thank you.

Victoria: Hi, Dad.

Victor: Hi, Sweetheart.

Victoria: Oh, you don't mind, do you?

Victor: As long as it keeps you and my grandson happy. How are you feeling, well?

Victoria: Well, to tell you the truth, I'm a little nervous.

Victor: About what?

Victoria: The live interview we're giving on Clear Springs.

Victor: You mother's attempt to fix bad publicity?

Victoria: Well, it's not easy when Jack's screw-ups are a daily occurrence in the news.

Victor: Nothing I can do about that.

Victoria: Right. Oh, thank you. Have I ever told you how happy I am that I don't have to go home to someone with the last name Newman?

Victor: That name can be a burden sometimes, can't it?

Victoria: Sometimes, yeah.

Brad: Hey, thought I'd come check on the little one.

Victoria: Well, how nice. My father and ex-husband have so much in common-- concern for my baby and making Jack Abbott suffer.

Victor: You have a nice day, my darling.

Brad: She always did know how to make an exit.

Victor: Why don't you demonstrate yours?

Nikki: Oh, my God! This is the most offensive thing I have ever read! Did you see this?

David: Sharon's article was pretty rough.

Nikki: The part about Cassie is totally misleading. She should not have been included.

David: You're right. It was beyond inappropriate.

Nikki: There are plenty of derogatory things to say about Sharon without including the children.

David: Especially since her husband is the real problem. Every time someone mentions Jack's name and Clear Springs in the same sentence, it's usually negative.

Nikki: Oh, listen, I've scheduled a meeting with the principal retail owners. I just wanna reassure them that "A"--their investment is safe, and "B"--we are going to let the world know that we are not associated with Jack Abbott.

David: And let us not forget "C"--I have the perfect plan to solidify our separation from Jack.

Jana: God, I am so glad that I know somebody in here. I mean, its fate, don't you think? And we're so much alike! I mean, both a little nuts. But, gosh, we're going to be such great friends!

Phyllis: I'm... I'm--I'm--I'm not nuts.

Jana: Well, okay, "Crazy in Love" a better expression?

Phyllis: No, not really. Not really. It's a good song, though.

Jana: It is, isn't it? God, we really have a lot in common.

Phyllis: Excuse me.

Jana: What are you gonna do now then?

Phyllis: Um, look at a magazine I think.

Jana: Really? I was going to do the same thing! I mean, coincidence? I think not!

Phyllis: Oh, I think so. I think so.

Jana: So do they have any current ones?

Phyllis: Uh, yeah, sure, I guess. Here, right there.

Jana: Oh, good, because the last place I was in-- the psych ward-- they didn't always have the newest issues, you know?

Phyllis: Speaking of issues.

Jana: So do you think the guards read the mags first? Because the nurses always used to take out the perfume samples. I really don't think that's too fair, do you?

Phyllis: Oh, no, it's not fair. Listen, um, I'm not looking to, uh, make any friends.

Jana: Well, that's the beauty of it, you see? I mean, we're practically friends already! I mean, we made it through one of Mrs. Bardwell's dinner parties, and that's like surviving a P.O.W. camp, you know?

Phyllis: Right, right, right, except the food is better, I'm sure.

Jana: (Laughs) see? God, we even have the same sense of humor!

Phyllis: Um, I-I don't think we do.

Jana: And the greatest part is--we both know what it's like to love a man so much that we would go to extremes for them.

Lauren: Well, that was Nikki. Who wants to meet about Fenmore's in Clear Springs. Remember that project? The one that's going to pay for Fen's college? The one you might have sunk?

Gloria: I'm sure that your investment is going to be just fine.

Lauren: Oh, well, thank you for being so reassuring. Let me tell you what I didn't sign up for. When I married Michael, I did not sign up for the Baldwin-Fisher scheme of the month club! I am so sick of it! You--you just don't understand how your actions affect other people! You're just so concentrated on yourself! I should not be the one to have to tell the two of you to grow up!

Gloria: Listen, our names are never gonna be connected with that evidence, because Victor is the one--

Lauren: Oh, don't even start with me! Because I wouldn't believe a thing either one of you would say!

Nikki: Victoria will be here soon.

David: Was she gonna stop by the photo department?

Nikki: She's gonna call them and have them send them up.

David: Okay. Well, when is Lauren arriving?

Nikki: Half an hour.

David: Great, that should give us plenty of time before the interview.

Nikki: They're still planning that magazine spread, right?

David: Oh, yeah, absolutely, absolutely. There's, um, their list of, uh, top resort destinations comes out in November, then they go to the town, shoot some footage for a television special.

Nikki: Listen, I'm still curious about that plan you were talking about regarding Jack?

David: Just something I'm working on.

Nikki: What should I know about it?

David: All you need to know is that I'm working very hard to help you become very successful.

Nikki: Really? Remind me to give you a raise.

David: You know, anybody else would've bailed out of this development a long time ago. But not you! Anything comes your way, you handle it.

Nikki: With your help.

David: No, no, I just offer suggestions. You make the final decisions. Someday you're gonna be able to look back at this rejuvenated town and know that your vision remained intact.

Nikki: None of which I could've done without you.

Jack: Ben, this is totally unacceptable. No, you pull whatever staff members you have to, put a stop to this! I don't care how many phone calls you have to make, my wife is off limits to the press! Yeah, I have his number in the study. I'll be right back. You still there?

(Cell phone ringing)

Sharon: Hey, this isn't a good time.

Brad: I didn't think it would be, that's why I'm calling.

Sharon: What, did you read the paper?

Brad: It's right in front of me.

Sharon: Did you learn anything new?

Brad: Only that I'm going to cancel my "Chronicle" subscription.

Sharon: You know, I feel so violated. Again. Keeping my private life private seems to be impossible. I mean, there's my whole life right there, in black and white.

Brad: What can I do for you?

Sharon: Just don't believe everything you read, okay?

Brad: They didn't write about the Sharon I know.

Jack: I have the fax right here. Tell me when you're ready.

Sharon: Your call really helped, but I have to go, okay? Bye.

Gloria: Lauren? Before you go...

Lauren: (Sighs)

Gloria: I'd like to apologize.

Lauren: Why don't we just wait five more minutes? Maybe something else will happen.

Gloria: You have every right to be angry.

Lauren: Why, thank you very much, I am.

Gloria: But you gotta know that I would never intentionally hurt you. 'Cause I adore you.

Lauren: Well, that's really nice of you to say now. But you see, your actions prove otherwise. You get so caught up in what you want, that's all you focus on! And it is a really hard habit to live with.

Michael: Bye.

Gloria: I tried to apologize!

Michael: And you thought that would work?

Gloria: I am sorry, Michael!

Michael: Not for what you did! You're only sorry because Lauren got hurt.

Gloria: Jack Abbott got what he deserved!

Michael: Oh, payback is a Gloria? Is that the new expression?!

Gloria: He has treated my family like dirt! I have no problem letting the world see what a self-centered S.O.B. he is. He has lied and he has lied and he has lied! And that comes back to bite a person.

Michael: That is what keeps me awake at night worrying. About you.

Jack: I'll put that all in the recycling bin later.

Sharon: You think maybe the local center could take, oh, a few tons of it?

Jack: I don't know, why?

Sharon: Because I have a plan that involves going door to door and collecting every single one of those newspapers or magazine that's slammed me and turning it into pulp.

Jack: That sounds like a great idea to me.

Sharon: Let's at least make sure we've cleaned them up from around here. I don't want Noah coming home and reading that garbage.

Jack: Listen, it's gonna be rough, but he's a tough kid and he knows the real you.

Sharon: The real us. Sometimes I still wish that he had a force field around him, you know, like... one of his comic strip heroes.

Jack: I've been reminded lately just how powerful sticking together and telling the truth can be. That's how we'll protect Noah.

Sharon: He's still gonna end up reading one of those articles.

Jack: The people that write that crap don't know anything. They don't know you. They don't know how... strong you are, how supportive, how loving you are. We do.

Sharon: Well, I'm glad you see me that way, Jack.

Jack: I meant what I said yesterday. You have been so incredibly supportive. I love you for it. But it's my turn to start looking out for you and Noah. Start building this into the family you both deserve.

[Sharon remembering]

Brad: The connection we have is stronger than anything you've ever had with any other man.

Sharon: You're making me uncomfortable.

Brad: Now I don't expect you to admit it. Not yet. We're the couple. I don't care who you're with, and I don't care how long you've been with them. You and I are the real couple, not you and Nick, not you and Jack.

Brad: Victoria was right about our desire to see Jack fall on his face. The problem is, Sharon's getting hurt and it's his fault.

Victor: She should've chosen a different husband.

Brad: Well, what hurts Sharon affects your grandson.

Victor: I'm touched by your concern.

Victor: Hello, Ms. Gomez, may I have a word?

Ms. Gomez: Mr. Newman? I'm honored.

Victor: I just read your column here.

Ms. Gomez: Are you a fan of "Wendy’s Way"?

Victor: If you mention Sharon Abbott’s name one more time in one of your columns, it'll be your last assignment. You get that?

Ms. Gomez: Yes, Mr. Newman.

Victor: Mm-hmm. However, when it comes to her husband, he is not off limits. Whatever you wanna write about his malfeasance or shenanigans, feel free to do so.

Lauren: Well, as long as Jack is part of this project, people are gonna be reluctant to attach their names to it.

Victoria: Our plan is to present Clear Springs as its own entity. To break away from Jack and his casino.

Lauren: You know, I had initial reservation about that casino not being part of this project, but now with this Jack thing--

Nikki: Well, it is still being built, but we're going to make sure that the public is very aware that it's a separate entity from our vision of the town.

Lauren: I also heard Rothby's pulled out?

Nikki: That is true, but that just means more profit for your store.

Victoria: Less competition.

Lauren: And less businesses to generate foot traffic.

Victoria: Well, the other retail stores have remained intact.

Lauren: You know, Victoria, one department store does not a mall make. You need other high end retailers to attract customers.

Victoria: Not necessarily. Not if your Fenmore’s. Renovations are almost complete. It's going to be absolutely exquisite.

Nikki: It really is. Fenmore's is going to be the main attraction.

Lauren: It's still risky.

Victoria: If Fenmore's backs out, it will affect housing sales to second-home buyers looking for a luxury development.

Nikki: We wanna propose a huge marketing campaign focusing on Fenmore’s. I will pay all the expenses.

Lauren: I'm still not convinced this is gonna work.

David: You don't have to be. I was just on the phone with the owner of Saxton's. I convinced him that this is a one-of-a-kind opportunity that he cannot afford to pass up. They will be at the forefront of a whole new kind of lifestyle. And he agreed, on one condition.

Nikki: Which is?

David: That Fenmore's remains part of the development.

Lauren: Saxton's in?

David: As long as you are.

Lauren: Then I'm still in. Let's hope it gets better from here, huh?

Victoria: Thank you, Lauren. That was close.

Phyllis: Any other cell block would be better than this one.

McQueen: Problem with my facility?

Phyllis: No, it's, uh, another inmate, Jana Hawkes, the murderer? Um... she's freaking me out.

McQueen: Ms. Hawkes said you two were friends on the other side.

Phyllis: See--see, therein lies the problem. We're not friends. We saw each other at a couple social events, that's it. She murdered a woman and then tried to blame my best friend's brother.

McQueen: I'll consider your request, Ms. Newman.

Phyllis: Thank you. Thank you. Anything you can do would be appreciated. Thank you.

Phyllis: Hey. How you doing there?

Jana: Good.

Phyllis: Anything interesting?

Jana: Uh, you know, romance novels, self help books, dullsville.

Phyllis: Well, that's a bad name for a book.

Jana: (Laughs) no, I meant that the books are duller than dishwater.

Phyllis: Oh, right, right, right. What kind of books do you like?

Jana: Oh, well, easy answer there-- biographies.

Phyllis: Oh, great, biographies.

Jana: Mm-hmm.

Phyllis: Those are kind of dull, aren't they?

Jana: You ever read the one about Peter Sutcliffe?

Phyllis: No, who's he?

Jana: Well, he's the Yorkshire Ripper.

Phyllis: Oh. The Yorkshire Ripper? What, is that a British term for a nasty politician or something?

Jana: Hardly. He was a serial killer.

Phyllis: Oh.

Jana: Mm-hmm. Oh, I've read that one so many times I could recite it from memory.

Phyllis: That's great. Uh, I have to talk to Charlene about a transaction. Pardon me.

Jana: Okay. Cheers.

[Phyllis sits by an inmate and gives her money for a phone card. The warden sees this]

Nikki: I can't believe you pulled this off. Well, yes, actually, I can. It will be such a relief to tell them about Fenmore’s.

David: All right, yeah, listen, about that-- um, no mention of the other store until the deal is finalized.

Nikki: How about a teaser? "We anticipate the announcement of a major addition to the development very soon."

David: Mm. Spoken like a true professional.

Nikki: Well, I wish I felt like one. I am so nervous.

David: Come on. You can do this.

Victor: Can I have a glass of water for me?

Michael: Working off some of that aggression against your wife?

Victor: You watch your tone.

Michael: Maybe you're planning on releasing another DVD to finish off the job?

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

Michael: Not according to Gloria. Look, Victor, we all know you're trying to hurt Nikki, but you're doing it in a way that hurts my wife, and I can't let you do that.

Victor: This conversation-- all conversations pertaining to the subject matter-- are covered by attorney/client privilege. You got that? Don't you come here and talk to me this way. It is your evidence that forced Ji Min to expose Jack Abbott. You didn't mind my tactics then. When you allowed Jabot to be sold to Kay Chancellor, without my knowledge, you left me no alternative, you got that?

Michael: Oh, so this is some sort of twisted payback because I couldn't stop that deal?

Victor: You have shown me no loyalty. I will show you none. Remember one thing, I will not protect your wife's investment, nor will I protect your mother, nor will I protect you. End of conversation.

Gloria: Jeffrey! Well, isn't this unexpected?

Jeff: You seemed excited to see the items my brother sent to me. The weirdest item-- cream.

Gloria: Cream?

Jeff: Yeah, um--um, lotion, moisturizer, um... a little white jar about this big. So I thought if you had a moment, I thought we could, um. Go through it now.

Gloria: Come on in.

Jeff: And what else... oh, yeah, his coin collection.

Gloria: Hmm. I didn't know he was a collector.

Jeff: Well, not a serious one. Those are from the, uh, year we were born. Uh, pictures of him as a kid.

Gloria: Oh! Oh, he was so adorable. And this one--is that you?

Jeff: No, that's William. That's me.

Gloria: (Laughs) you two look just so much alike.

Jeff: (Laughs)

Gloria: I don't understand how you know all these things. I mean, you and William were separated when you were so young.

Jeff: Yeah, uh... William labeled everything.

Gloria: Oh.

Jeff: He taped index cards to the back of everything explaining how much it meant to him. I took 'em off before I brought 'em.

Gloria: Well, let's see what else he sent.

Jeff: This is what I've been looking forward to sharing with you. William's childhood letters.

Gloria: Really?

Jeff: Yeah, some of them are addressed to our father, a few addressed to me. You know, for some reason, they--they were never sent.

Gloria: Yeah? Well, I can't wait to read what young William’s thoughts were.

Jeff: Oh, no, no, no, no, don't--don't touch 'em yet. I don't want our fingerprints to damage 'em. They've become very special to me since his passing.

Gloria: Of course they have.

Jeff: I have what the experts call "archivally safe" plastic sleeves on order. Eventually, I'll put 'em in a binder.

Gloria: Great. Then we'll look at them then.

Jeff: No, no, hey, you know, if you put these on, you can read 'em now.

Michael: I'm gonna need specifics if I'm gonna argue that you should be moved.

Phyllis: Okay, well, we just had a nice, long conversation about a serial killer.

Michael: Did she threaten you?

Phyllis: No, but her fondness for all things death related, it creeps me out.

Michael: Well, maybe she can give you tips about being crazy while you braid each other's hair.

Phyllis: Are you kidding me? Michael, listen to me, I am here for extortion, she is here for murder, okay? I already talked to the warden. Can you please call him, too?

Michael: All right, I'll do what I can. Uh, Lauren’s here. I gotta go.

Phyllis: Tell her hi.

Michael: Yeah, will do. Stay tough.

Lauren: (Sighs) thank you.

Michael: Oh, Phyllis says hi. How'd the meeting go?

Lauren: Well... Fenmore's is still in Clear Springs. They are putting on a media blitz to try and cover up all the damage your mother tried to create.

Michael: Uh, well, you didn't happen to, uh, mention--

Lauren: Oh, tell them that Gloria was the one that gave Victor the incriminating evidence? No, I'm the one that thinks before she acts.

Michael: I'm sorry. What am I supposed to do? I can barely keep my mother and my brother out of jail.

Lauren: I wish that weren't true.

Michael: Yeah, me, too.

Lauren: We should be able to tell each other anything. If we can't, what kind of marriage do we have?

Nikki: We're very excited that you've chosen to feature Clear Springs.

Woman: The town is about to become the destination hot spot.

Victoria: Oh, absolutely! And when you think Clear Springs, we want you to think luxurious getaway.

Woman: Which was most influential to your vision?

Nikki: Oh, I would say... Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina.

Victoria: Yeah.

Nikki: They take great pride in connecting their past with their city's future. That's the same mindset that we were going for in Clear Springs.

Victoria: Mm-hmm.

Nikki: See, we, um, wanted to renovate and integrate the existing buildings.

Victoria: Making sure, of course, that the structures stay intact without taking away from the beautiful landscape.

Woman: Does that include Senator Abbott’s casino?

Nikki: Oh, well, that's just one building. We have a downtown area that has been meticulously renovated. It really takes you back in time.

Victoria: While having everything you want in the 21st century.

Woman: Have you encountered any problems because of your association with the senator?

Nikki: Oh, our development is completely separate from Senator Abbott. Victoria, why don't you tell her about our nature trails?

Victoria: Well, we have near the lake, uh, three trails, one for hiking, horseback riding, biking.

Woman: The senator's been accused of fraud. Has it had any effect on the project?

Nikki: The political problems of Senator Abbott have absolutely nothing to do with the vital renewal of this town.

Woman: I'm hearing buzz about the spa.

Nikki: It has several amenities exclusive to N.V.P.

Woman: Can you tell me about the shopping?

Nikki: It's going to be fabulous! We have many specialty boutiques, lots of retail stores. You can get a complete list on our web site. And we are very proud and happy to announce that Fenmore's is going to anchor our mall.

Woman: How about entertainment?

Nikki: Our performance art center is already booked for several performances. A must see for everybody.

Woman: I'll be sure to book a weekend.

Nikki: Well, you better do it soon. We expect to be at full capacity for a very long time.

Jack: Well, props to Nikki. She let any questions about me just dissipate. Hey, you ready to go to work?

Sharon: Not really. I mean, do we have to? I-I don't really wanna face the world.

Jack: Come on, no hermits in this house.

Sharon: Do you know anyone in the witness protection program?

Jack: If it gets really bad, you call me. We'll pick up Noah, we'll go to a video arcade, okay?

Sharon: Sure.

Jack: For now, let's face these bastards head on. Let 'em know they did not get to you.

Sharon: Let's do it.

Victoria: David, I just really wanna commend you for all of your prep work.

David: I appreciate that.

Victoria: Also, on a personal note, I-I wanna thank you for all of your support that you've shown my mom.

David: Well, she makes it very easy. Your answer about how the political problems had nothing to do with the renewal-- right on the money.

Nikki: Mm.

Victoria: True.

Nikki: Thank you. What I really wanted to do was smash that picture of the tranquil lake right over the reporter's head.

Victoria: Okay, on that note I am gonna go check my messages.

Nikki: All right, Sweetheart.

Victoria: Good job.

Nikki: Thank you so much.

Victoria: All right. I'll see you.

Nikki: It really did go well didn't it?

David: Yeah. You made me wanna pack up a bag and move there.

Nikki: Let's hope lots of other people feel that way, too.

David: Look, um, I have some unfinished business I have to tend to, okay? And then we can celebrate.

Nikki: All right. I have to meet the interior designer anyway.

David: Sounds good. My room at the club? Later, okay? I'll call you when I'm on my way.

Nikki: I'll be there.

McQueen: Pack your personal items. The guard will take you to your new cell in a bit.

Phyllis: Oh! Thank-- um, thank you, I-I appreciate it. Thank you very much.

Gloria: "And last week we went to the courthouse on a field trip. And I sat in the judge's chair. One day, I'm gonna be on the Supreme Court." High ambitions for a 12 year old.

Jeff: (Chuckles) I think the next year he was gonna be president.

Gloria: Oh, yeah?

Jeff: Hey, you could've been his first lady.

Gloria: Ha.

Fen: (Cries)

Gloria: Oh, I'm so sorry, Jeffrey. That is my grandson, and the longer I take, the louder he howls, so, um...

Jeff: Yeah, sure, sure, I can come back another time.

Gloria: Okay, but this means so much to have seen these. Let me just show you out. Thank you so much for stopping by.

Jeff: Yeah, sure. Um, whoa, you afraid of leaving fingerprints on your grandson?

Gloria: I forgot I had 'em on! I always wear these very ones when I clean my jewelry.

Jeff: (Laughs) yeah.

Gloria: You take care, Jeffrey. Gotta go.

Jeff: Okay.

Brad: Hey. I'm glad to see you here.

Sharon: Not, uh, glad to be here.

Brad: Then why are you?

Sharon: Because... Jack thought it was the best thing to do, was to show up to work and act like everything the paper says about us doesn't matter.

Brad: So... you have to walk the press gauntlet for what Jack did?

Sharon: Well, you're making it sound worse than it is.

Brad: Am I? He lied to you. He lied to the public. He committed fraud. How can I make it sound worse than it is? Hey, come on, everybody, give the guy a break. It's not like he ran over a puppy with his car.

Sharon: Jack's a senator. And we're both in the limelight I have to support him. I need to be seen supporting him.

Brad: Okay, so he doesn't run over stray dogs, but he's happy to sacrifice his wife. That doesn't seem to bother him in the least.

Sharon: I'm doing this because I want to.

Brad: You're doing it because Jack told you to.

Sharon: Brad, I get enough criticism from the press. I don't need to come to the office and get it from you, too. I'm just trying to do the right thing.

Brad: And that's exactly why Jack can take advantage of you. Sharon, the man is sucking out your soul and you don't even realize it.

Brad: You're trying to do the right thing and the press is eating you alive.

Sharon: I didn't expect they would be that mean.

Brad: Oh, not mean, vicious, cruel.

Sharon: Painting me as a money-grubbing, man-hungry, sycophant who's obsessed with my status? It's ridiculous, you're right. That is cruel. But you know what? Jack's gonna stop them.

Brad: Well, I just hope they don't find out about Nick. No one else knows, do they?

Sharon: What, about the kiss? No, no, I-I only told you.

Phyllis: Hey! I'm all packed and ready to go.

McQueen: Your new cell mate should be here soon. I wanted to make sure you were taken care of.

Phyllis: Oh, thank you. You're very sweet. I'm honored.

McQueen: Don't be. This is going to be a reminder, Ms. Newman, that you don't receive special privileges. You aren't any different from the other inmates.

Phyllis: Uh, okay. What--what do you mean?

McQueen: Purchasing other inmate calling cards is not allowed. Neither is carrying cash.

Phyllis: Oh. Oh, it's not?

McQueen: Cards are issued to individuals so we can enforce the number of calls made.

Phyllis: All right, Warden, Charlene, all right, Charlene doesn't make any phone calls.

McQueen: Not the point.

Phyllis: Listen, all right, so I make more calls, some people don't make calls, it all evens out.

McQueen: I've let you slide on a few occasions, but that ends today.

Phyllis: Are you taking away my privileges again?

McQueen: No. I am sending you a very clear message. You don't always get what you want. And here's your new cell mate.

Jana: Well, isn't this cracking?!

Gloria: And then he pulled out these letters, but he wouldn't let me touch them.

Michael: What's so unusual about that?

Gloria: Without putting on latex gloves.

Lauren: It was just a precaution to preserve the letters, Gloria.

Gloria: Latex gloves like the ones I wore when I went to Jabot.

Michael: And played chemist?

Lauren: This... oh, this cannot be happening today.

Michael: It's a coincidence.

Gloria: He knows, Michael. Jeffrey Bardwell knows that I contaminated that cream.

Nikki: Oh. Hello.

Victor: Well, congratulations on your interview.

Nikki: Thank you. I was happy with it.

Victor: It won't do your project any good. It'll continue to take hits because of Jack Abbott’s bad reputation.

Nikki: Oh, that's no longer my concern. We're going ahead with our new marketing campaign. The worst is over.

Victor: Oh, good. Pride cometh before the fall, you know?

Nikki: I am proud of my accomplishments, and I will not allow you or anyone else to bring me down.

Victor: Your failure will be my success. When I met you, you had nothing. That's exactly what I'll leave you with.

David: Thank you for coming.

Carter: I always find our little off the record chats interesting.

David: (Chuckles) Well, I like to raise questions that you might not think to ask.

Carter: Such as?

David: Such as, Senator Abbott’s possible involvement in the death of Mr. Kim.

Carter: No, if he'd been involved somehow, we'd know about it by now.

David: Would we? Really? Look, I'm not trying to point fingers here, but come on, let's be honest. The man does have local influence. Now I handled several politicians throughout the years that couldn't seem to stay out of trouble, yet I managed to keep their stories from the media.

Carter: You don't care to share any of those names, do you?

David: Well, I think we should focus on Jack right now. Don't you find it a bit odd that Mr. Kim was found dead on the very same day he was going to go public with the senator's biggest secret? I would think that alone would warrant a rigorous investigation.

Carter: So you think I'm the man for the job?

David: I think you have the tenacity to make sure this story receives all the attention it rightfully deserves.

Brad: Oh, you were saying you were concerned about security cameras? Were there any in the vault?

Sharon: You know, I don't know. I hope not. I...

(Door opens)

Sharon: So, Noah was trying to talk me into going to comic-con with him next year.

Brad: Oh, well, he'd have a blast. Hey, Jack, what's up?

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

Maggie: The coroner's autopsy report on Ji Min raised some questions.

Brad: You try to isolate me from Sharon, she'll only end up resenting you.

Jack: Stay away from my wife.

Jana: I wish I were the one who was dead, and Carmen was the killer.
