Nick: Yeah. Hey, can you check and see if there's an e-mail from emergency response?
Phyllis: Not yet.
Nick: Okay, I'll call you as soon as I know anything.
Phyllis: You know the bloggers are saying that, um, it was sabotage. That somebody's out to destroy Victor Newman.
Nick: They're always saying that about Dad.
Phyllis: Yeah, but they're also saying that, um... they think the inspectors were paid off.
Nick: That is just ridiculous!
Phyllis: Not as ridiculous as me not being able to kiss you.
Nick: What'd you have in mind?
Phyllis: Supply closet. Ten minutes.
Nick: Would that be considered unprofessional?
Nick: Not that I don't want to, because I sure as hell do...
Phyllis: Me, too. Anyway... you look wiped out.
Nick: I'm just having a hard time sleeping. I can't stop thinking about Victoria and the baby and Noah.
Phyllis: It kills me that I can't be here for you.
Nick: You are. You're right there.
Phyllis: No, I'm not. I'm not here for you.
Nick: Well, at least you're not wearing that ugly prison outfit anymore. I mean-- although, you were working it.
Phyllis: (Giggles) I did work it. It's nice to wear my own clothes.
Nick: And wearing them, you are. You look... damn.
Phyllis: You look good, too.
Nick: Oh, it kills me that I can't touch you.
Phyllis: Just hearing you say that makes me feel like you are.
Nick: Thank you.
Phyllis: That's great. I need help with this press release right here.
Nick: Yeah, let me, uh, get you that information.
Phyllis: Yeah. Oh, good. Thank you. This is torture. I don't think I can do this.
Nick: Yes, you can. And you will.
Victor: My baby. You should see all the get well cards and all the flowers that people sent. They just love you. They all want you to get well.
Nikki: Yes, they do. We're gonna donate the flowers. Gosh, I remember one spring, you were six or so, and the flowers were budding, but you didn't think that they were doing it fast enough. They weren't blooming fast enough for you, so you tried to do it yourself.
Victor: You were always kind of impatient, you know?
Nikki: Mm. Mm-hmm.
J.T.: You never let anybody dominate the conversation like this. We should've never... we should've never looked at that baby name book.
Victor: Oh, come on, I loved looking at that book.
Nikki: And we're gonna do it again soon. (Door opens)
Dr. Okamura: I have her test results.
Victor: You may speak in front of the gentleman. He is my daughter's fiancť.
Dr. Okamura: From the ultrasound and non-stress test, it appears that the baby's healthy and developing quite normally.
Nikki: Oh, that is wonderful news.
Dr. Okamura: As long as Ms. Newman remains in stable condition, the baby should continue to grow in utero.
Victor: Now, Doctor, you know that I'm flying in someone who specializes in brain injuries and pregnancy.
Dr. Okamura: Dr. Webb from Johns Hopkins, yes. We spoke and I sent him a copy of Ms. Newman's tests.
Victor: Well, I'm glad to hear that. Thank you.
Dr. Okamura: Excuse me.
Brad: Doctor? Any change with Victoria? Is the baby all right?
Dr. Okamura: I'm sorry, Mr. Carlton, but you'll have to speak to the family. Excuse me.
Esther: Oh, Amber, hi. What are you doing here?
Amber: Um, I wanted to see if Mrs. Chancellor was home.
Esther: Oh, she is, but she's not up to having visitors right now.
Amber: Oh, okay. Um, I just wanna see how she was doing.
Esther: Well, I'll tell her that you stopped by, okay?
Amber: Okay. Oh, hey, Esther, um, would you mind giving this to her for me? It's a little gift.
Kay: Is that Amber?
Amber: Yeah, hi, Mrs. Chancellor.
Kay: Come in! Come on, come in!
Amber: Thanks. Hi!
Kay: Hi. Oh, I'm so happy you stopped by. It's so good to see you.
Cane: Can you make that to-go?
Man: No problem.
Cane: Thank you. Is that Jack Abbott?
Jill: It's unbelievable. It's another article about how the man sacrificed himself.
Cane: Mum, you have to give him some respect for what he did.
Jill: For what? Taking advantage of the situation? He probably staged the whole thing just to turn his image around.
Cane: I don't think he would've gone that far.
Man: Senator Abbott, you're a hero. The coffee's on the house.
Jack: I did what anyone would've done.
Man: No way. Most people are out for themselves.
Jill: And you're one of them.
Cane: People can change, Mum.
Jill: Yeah, that's exactly my point. People do change. I've known Jack Abbott almost all my life. I mean, for all those years I was married to his father, we were family. Business partners, adversaries, friends. Sometimes more than friends. That's why... this is so hard for me. 'Cause I cared about him. And now I think... he is a cold-blooded killer.
Kay: Well, I should be turning cartwheels again, I would say by the end of the week.
Amber: (Laughs) hey, um, I have a little something for you.
Amber: Here, I'll help you. I wrapped it too tight.
Kay: It's pretty. It's pretty ribbon. I love the box.
Kay: Oh, how lovely!
Amber: It's--it's to use as a sling.
Kay: Well, I certainly... will be a trendsetter, won't I?
Amber: Well, yeah, you know, next year on the runway you're gonna see scarves used as slings. You know, I just may create my own line.
Kay: That's very thoughtful of you, thank you. Thank you.
Esther: Okay, here we go.
Kay: Very good.
Esther: Can I get you anything else, Mrs. C.?
Kay: Um, oh, Amber, would you care for anything?
Amber: Oh, no, I'm fine. Thank you, though.
Kay: Uh, nothing else, Esther. Well... enough about me. How are you feeling, young lady?
Amber: Well, I-I only have some minor bruises and scratches.
Kay: Do you know how lucky we are to be out of that parking garage? My God, I've never been so terrified in my life.
Amber: Yeah, every time... I-I heard a noise, I thought for sure I was just gonna be a goner. I really feel like we have second chances, you know? And I-I really wanna take advantage of that in a good way.
Kay: I bet you will. Would you hand me my purse, please? It's right there behind you.
Amber: Yeah. Here you go.
Kay: Okay... there it is. It's a little gift to take with you on your journey.
Amber: You didn't have to do that.
Kay: No, no, no, I know I didn't, but I did. So go on, open it.
Amber: Okay. Oh, my gosh!
Kay: Thatís... to replace, uh, the one that, uh, you gave me, which I lost while I was being rescued.
Amber: It's--it's gorgeous. Thank you.
Kay: You're most welcome.
Amber: I'm gonna-- I'm gonna go put this on.
Kay: Do it.
Kay: Yes, of course.
Jill: Mother, have you heard from--
Amber: Hey, guy hey, look what Mrs. Chancellor just gave me!
Nick: I need you to check and see if there's any negligence on the behalf of Chancellor construction, if we're liable in any way and get back to me A.S.A.P. okay.
Phyllis: Phyllis Newman. Yeah, yeah, I just-- I just got here. Right. Today's my first day. Thanks. No, he's not. I'll--I'll tell him-- I'll tell him when he gets in. A lull.
Nick: What should we do with the time?
Phyllis: I know what I wanna do.
Nick: You know, that supply closet is sounding better and better.
David: Have you seen Jack?
Phyllis: No, I have not.
David: When did you get out?
Phyllis: I'm on work release, David.
Nick: Can I help you with something?
David: Yeah, will you ask Jack to call me the second he gets in, please?
Phyllis: Sure, I will. Absolutely. Yes?
Nick: You wanna know the worst part about being trapped in that garage?
Phyllis: What was the worst part?
Nick: I was worrying whether or not I'd ever see you or the kids again.
Phyllis: Watching that on TV was torture. I wanted to bust out of prison.
Nick: Well, I'm glad you didnít. 'Cause then I wouldn't be able to sit here and... stare at you and think about all the things I wanna do with you.
Phyllis: That would get me in as much trouble, you know that?
Phyllis: Oh. Look at this. Look what they're saying about Jack.
Nick: No, it's true. I mean, he didnít... he didn't hesitate for a second. Even though he... might never see us again.
Phyllis: I know, right? Good. This is good press. This will help him, finally.
Nick: Only gonna last a day or two, then they'll go back to focusing on Jack as a suspect.
Phyllis: What do you mean?
Nick: Well, for Ji Min's death.
Phyllis: Jack's not a killer.
Nick: Yeah, but it could've been an accident that he covered up.
Phyllis: I don't think so. Who told you this?
Nick: Jack did.
Jack: Hey, Brad. How's Victoria?
Brad: You know as much as I do. I haven't been able to see her. How's Sharon and Noah?
Jack: He's a tough kid. He's gonna be okay.
Brad: Sharon's leg?
Jack: Sprained. They've got her in a walking cast. Not that that's slowing her down in the least.
Brad: I'd like to drop by and say hello.
Jack: I'd rather you didn't right now for Noahís sake. He's a little fragile.
Brad: Well, please, uh, tell her I was asking about her?
Jack: Sure. In fact, feel free to give her a call on her cell a little later.
Brad: What did the doctor say?
Nikki: Uh, the baby is stable.
Brad: And Victoria?
Nikki: No change.
Brad: What happens to the baby if Victoria's condition deteriorates?
Nikki: I don't know, Brad. I don't even wanna think about that.
Brad: Could I see her? Please?
Nikki: Her father's with her right now.
Victor: You hire the best people available. Spare no expense. You fly them out here. Well, you get whatever equipment you need. I wanna get to the bottom of this today. When my daughter wakes up, I wanna be able to tell her who's responsible for this disaster, no one will get away with it.
Cane: So we have the heavy equipment waiting on standby. We're just waiting for the word to go ahead. We're also ready to contain any health hazard that might come up.
Amber: Oh, like that, uh, poisonous dust from 9/11?
Kay: You know, the press is comparing this to that New Jersey casino collapse. I mean, all those families got over $100 million.
Cane: You know, the parking structure wouldn't have passed inspection if it wasn't for the payoffs. I should've-- I should've just closed it down.
Jill: Darling, we didn't know this was gonna happen.
Amber: Yeah, I-I don't mean to butt in, but, you know, maybe you guys should start some sort of, um, fund for the families.
Kay: That's a wonderful idea. Jill?
Jill: That's a great idea. I'll do that.
Kay: All right.
Amber: I should go.
Jill: Amber? Thank you for being such a comfort to my mother.
Amber: She did the same for me.
Amber: Um... you wanna go a cup of coffee or a bite or something?
Cane: I'd like that. Sure. Come on.
Kay: Oh, Dear, this is such a tragedy. And... we're all so lucky, you know, to have one another. You know... Amber and I were... sitting there in that rubble and thinking... how something like this could change us-- change our lives. And I was sitting there thinking-- looking at all this dust and all the rubble, just that we may not get out alive, but I was having.... I was having terrible regrets. My biggest one was that I never made peace with my daughter.
Jill: Katherine... no matter what our disagreements are, you know I love you.
Kay: But that-- I mean, this shouldn't be. Because I've watched my dear, dear friend Victor for years. Now I watched him... shove his money and--and--and his--his power around, making all the family decisions, and saying, you know, it's for your own good. I've always thought he was pretty much a bully. And here I am, I know I'm acting... I'm acting the same way-- cutting you out of my will if you married Ji Min. And itís... wrong. It's wrong.
Jill: Yes, Mother, it's very wrong.
Kay: I'm trying to apologize here. Just be gracious.
Jill: I'm just savoring the moment.
Kay: Tell me something could you... could you really... really forgive me?
Jill: I already have.
Phyllis: Hey, Jack, uh, listen, I need those insurance papers. Can you just tell me where they are? Also, there's something else I need to talk to you about, so give me a call back. Bye. Aye-yi-yi-yi. Okay, insurance papers. Where would you be? Insurance papers?
[Phyllis finds Jackís letter to Sharon he wrote when he thought he was going to did]
Phyllis: "Sharon, at this moment my only strength comes from imagining you in my arms. My love for you is literally keeping me alive. In this last hour I've had so many thoughts about my life, the highs and the lows. I know I've disappointed many people, but I want you and Noah and Kyle and my sisters to always remember one thing-- I could not have loved you more. I'm so lucky and so proud to have been your husband. I love you, Jack."
Victor: You know, the doctor said that your baby is healthy and strong. And you know that... your daddy is flying in a specialist from Johns Hopkins University. He's the best in the kind of injury that you have, you know? He will treat you, and he will get you well. Okay?
Victor: You know what keeps on running through my mind... is the last conversation you and I had when you came to me about this Clear Springs project. And I must say now that I'm sorry for having been so harsh and stubborn, but you know when your father focuses on something, I just do it sometimes to the exclusion of everyone and everything else. That's just your dad. But you know that I always want what's best for you and for my children. You know that. I don't mean any harm with that. It's just when you're a dad or a mom, you just... always worry about your kids. And I didn't want you to... get involved in this Clear Springs project. And I didn't want your mother to get involved with it. But I didn't realize how much love and care you had devoted to cleaning up that place. I'm sorry that I didn't listen to you, didn't consult with you called in your mother's loan. I was wrong. But I know you will forgive me. Baby... my sweetheart... you're gonna get well real soon.
Jack: I didn't think anyone ever see this. I guess I kept it as a reminder.
Phyllis: Why do people wait to say that stuff when it's too late?
Jack: Well, I can't speak for everyone, but--
Phyllis: You had an experience that'll change your life forever, right?
Jack: Yeah, did everybody else. I mean, look at Noah--
Phyllis: Yeah, I'm-- I'm not talking about everybody else. I mean, you were there underneath all that rubble, thinking you wouldn't make it.
Jack: Well, you know what they say. "Nothing's certain in this life but death--"
Phyllis: Okay, Jack, I am not buying this "I'm too tough to think about death" act.
Jack: The truth? The truth is, I was terrified. Terrified. Then the strangest thing happened. I... had this peaceful feeling just come over me. And I thought, if I don't make it, at least I'll be with my dad. And how bad can that be?
Phyllis: Well, if that would've happened, your dad would've pushed you back to the other side where you belong. Everybody loves you so much. We're not gonna let you go.
Jack: That's a lot of methane down there. Maybe I just ran out of oxygen.
Jack: Jack. I'll send her right now. Yeah. There's a fax down for me in the conference room. Would you mind getting that?
Phyllis: Yeah. Sure.
Nick: Oh, you got one! And your big brother is feeling so much better now. And I promised to bring him a milkshake from the coffeehouse. And your big, big brother is gonna pick you up from the day care and take you home. And we're all gonna come back in the morning.
Logan: Hey. Sorry I'm late. One of our E.R. doctors is out with the flu. How are your eyes feeling?
Brad: Um, my eyes are fine.
Logan: And Victoria?
Brad: Well, I was about to ask you the same thing. The doctors won't tell me anything because technically I'm not family. I was hoping you could tell me something.
Woman: I'll need you both to leave while I administer a pain test.
Victor: I'm not leaving my daughter.
Nikki: Well, I won't be able to bear that. Be right back, Baby.
Victor: Right here, my sweetheart.
Victor: She's not responding, is she?
Woman: No, Sir.
David: There is speculation of sabotage. First the corporate jet, now this. Some kind of vendetta against your family. There's also talk of a payoff to city inspectors. So the insurance company has sent an investigation team to Clear Springs. I should go meet with them.
Nikki: I'm sorry, what?
David: It's not important. It can wait. Come here.
Phyllis: Mr. Newman?
Phyllis: This is all the, um, rescue and recovery information you wanted.
Nick: Thank you.
Phyllis: You're welcome. And definitely check the file. If you have any questions, you can e-mail me.
Nick: I will check the file.
Phyllis: Okay. Good-bye, work buddy.
Maggie: I-I still don't even feel like I'm in my own body. You know? My boss gave me a few days off work.
Kay: Well, when I came out of all that debris, all I wanted was a vodka on the rocks. Double. Double.
Maggie: Yeah. I feel like I should be doing something, you know? At least go down to Clear Springs, help with the rescue effort.
Kay: Well, feel the same way, but it's ridiculous, you know?
Jill: Detective Sullivan? I assume you're here about Ji Min?
Maggie: No. I was actually checking to see how your mother was doing.
Jill: Really? And what about the case? Have you arrested Jack yet?
Maggie: I promise you, that if that happens, you'll be the second person that finds out.
J.T.: You'll have an inspection report tomorrow, and we'll see if the city inspections match. No, no, no, you can't release that kind of information now. You'll vilify Chancellor Industries. We gotta get all our facts straight before we open ourselves up to a bunch of lawsuits. Look... it could be an isolated case. You can't be certain that that batch of concrete had anything to do with the collapse. All right, yeah, sounds good. Talk to you soon.
Victor: You knew there was a problem with the garage?
J.T.: Victor, it's not that simple.
Victor: You tell me everything now.
J.T.: It may not have had anything to do with the collapse.
Victor: Now you listen to me, my daughter's unconscious in there. You will not set foot in that room until you tell me everything. Why did you go to Clear Springs?
J.T.: Cane hired me because he thought someone was stealing from the construction site. I uncovered a bigger kickback scheme. They were over watering the concrete. As soon as I realized that, I called--I called Cane and Mrs. Chancellor.
Victor: Who was involved in the kickbacks? And I want names.
J.T.: There had to be a city inspector involved. And Joe Boddington-- the construction foreman who was killed in the collapse.
Victor: Who else?
J.T.: Paul's looking into David Chow's finances, see if he was involved as a subcontractor.
Victor: Why David Chow?
J.T.: Because he met with Joe a couple of times. But it was difficult to connect.
Nikki: Is everything all right?
Victor: What you know about kickbacks at Clear Springs?
David: Kickbacks? What kickbacks?
Victor: Substandard materials, watered-down concrete.
David: This is the first I'm hearing of it.
Victor: What's your relationship with the foreman?
David: Joe Boddington?
Nikki: Wait a minute, I sent David to Clear Springs to oversee the condos. What is this about?
Victor: Your friend used substandard materials which may have led to the collapse of that garage.
David: And you think I had something to do with this? Oh, big surprise. Something bad happens, and to you, I'm automatically involved? Come on, Victor, we both know this has everything to do with my relationship with Nikki.
Victor: This has nothing to do with your relationship with my ex-wife. This has everything to do with my daughter lying in that room.
David: Whatever Joe was involved in, I had nothing to do with it.
Victor: You better pray right now that I don't find out anything different.
Amber: You saved my life. Of course if you had known I was down there, you probably wouldn't have come back. So, you know...
Cane: I like that.
Cane: I think it's pretty.
Amber: So why'd you agree to have coffee with me?
Cane: When we were breaking up, I did some things to you that I'm not really that proud of.
Amber: Mm-hmm. Well, I don't blame you for being angry. I do blame you for pretending that you wanted me just so you could break up with me again.
Cane: Yeah. Yeah, that's-- that's one of the things I'm not really that proud of.
Amber: I gave it a lot of thought. I think that... I mean, well, you know, I-I must've-- I must've really hurt you for you to do something like that to me. Only someone that you lov-- care about... could hurt you that bad. I couldn't have screwed up any worse if I tried, huh?
Cane: No arguments here.
Nick: Hey, Man, can I get a, uh, strawberry milkshake, extra thick, to-go?
Man: No problem, Man.
Nick: Thanks. Hey, any word on what caused that collapse yet?
Cane: Hey. Uh, rescue and relief has accounted for everybody. We are... they're bringing in heavy machinery now, but it's gonna be slow.
Nick: You mean, 'cause of the methane?
Cane: Yeah. Yeah, if there's a spark in a pocket of gas, it'll be done.
Amber: How's your son?
Nick: He's doing better. Thank you.
Amber: What about Victoria?
Logan: When the brain swells it has no room to expand inside the skull. This causes a rise in pressure and can affect the blood flow. A C.T. scan was performed on Victoria and there was no significant swelling.
Brad: But could it develop later?
Logan: It can. Round the clock monitoring is essential. There's also the real possibility of a brain edema. Water collects inside the skull which creates excessive pressure, so they'll be monitoring her for I.C.P.-- Intracranial pressure. And how they'll treat it-- some drugs can cross through the placenta and affect the fetus.
Brad: But right now the baby's okay?
Logan: They haven't told you anything?
Brad: Only that he's stable.
Logan: Then he's all right.
Brad: What happens if Victoria's condition deteriorates?
Logan: Then the baby's health will deteriorate as well. One sign to look for is if Victoria's hand starts to claw. It's an indicator of fading sensory and motor skills. They'll also keep a close watch for preeclampsia. It sometimes occurs in the third trimester. It progresses rapidly and can be dangerous. Most women with preeclampsia deliver normal healthy babies. It's just that if it's left untreated, it can lead to placenta abruption, or seizures or H.E.L.L.P. syndrome, or elevated liver enzymes. I'm giving you too much information.
Brad: No. No, I asked. I wanted to know.
J.T.: I'm so sorry. We should' shut that building down the minute we thought there was a problem. Why'd I have to inspect it first? I'm never gonna be able to forgive myself for that.
Brad: Mind if I come in?
J.T.: Yeah, it's fine.
Brad: Any change?
J.T.: None. I'll be back in a minute.
Brad: Hey, it's me. You know, you are tougher to get an audience with than the Dalai Lama. So I have some really good news. They ran all kinds of tests on the baby and he's doing just fine. So you need to hang in there, not just for yourself, but for your child.
Nick: Hey. How's she doing?
J.T.: According to the last C.T. scan, there's been no change. But, Man, when I talk to her, I swear she hears me.
David: Yeah. It's officially no longer a search and rescue operation. The insurance investigators and the survey assessment teams are moving in.
Nikki: Please... tell me that you're not involved in any kickback schemes.
David: I swear to you, Nikki, any kickbacks. And whatever was going on, with Joe Boddington, or anyone else, I knew nothing about it. And I am just as angry as everyone else.
Jack: Nice to see you out of a jumpsuit.
Phyllis: Yeah, definitely a fashion don't, right? Well, I'll be here tomorrow. Same bat time, same bat station. That's a Halloween joke.
Phyllis: Give Noah a kiss for me.
Jack: I sure will. Oh, did you ever find those insurance papers?
Phyllis: Yeah, I did.
Jack: And there was something else?
Phyllis: Yeah, you're a suspect in Ji Min's murder?
Jack: Yeah, something about finding dog hair in his suite that has G.C.'s finest looking in my diction.
Phyllis: That's ridiculous.
Jack: Couldn't have put it better myself.
Phyllis: Yeah, forget about it. They'll be onto the next suspect. Don't worry about it. You're on this hero thing. Remember, the public loves a redeemed sinner, Senator Abbott.
Jack: Well, Senator Abbott would settle for a couple of Newmans getting out of the hospital and on the mend. And getting to build a model airplane with the 10-year-old version without getting glue all over the place.
Phyllis: You're a softie.
Jack: Don't tell anyone, okay?
Phyllis: Definitely not.
Jack: Hey? You okay?
Phyllis: Oh, I'm great.
Phyllis: Yeah. I'm terrific. Bye. I'll see you tomorrow.
Jill: Yes, Carter Campbell? This is Jill Abbott. We met when you were planning to interview my fiancť, Ji Min Kim. Yes, that's right. Listen, I have some information for you, but I wanna remain anonymous. Good. All right, here it is... the police have a major suspect in his homicide-- You're very welcome.
Jill: Esther? Never mind, Esther, I'll get the door.
Maggie: Well, Mrs. Chancellor, you have a beautiful home.
Kay: Well, thank you very much.
Maggie: You're welcome.
Victor: Where's your mother?
Jill: In the other room.
Victor: Why did you not shut down that garage when you knew there was a problem?
Cane: I was inspecting the site at the time of the collapse. If there was a problem, I would've dealt with it accordingly.
Victor: You should've shut it down. The moment you knew. And, Katherine, I don't understand why you would put your grandson, who is obviously inexperienced, in charge of that position!
Kay: I take full responsibility--
Cane: Grandma. I take responsibility for this.
Kay: No, I was the one who made the decision not to report it right away. We were all stretched thin over Clear Springs.
Victor: The point is you have very legitimate reasons to shut down that garage! You didn't do that. That may have cost my daughter's life!
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Jack: I am no killer. Resignation or not, the truth will prevail.
Adrian: When we were down there she kept me calm. So I owe her big-time.
Nikki: David had no part in it.
Victor: Whoever is responsible is gonna pay.
