Michael: A few days, give or take. They just wanna hear an oral argument this time.
Lauren: This is such great news!
Phyllis: Yeah. Do you have to file new briefs?
Michael: No. They stand as is. It's just an oral argument.
Lauren: So why do you think they decided to reconsider the appeal?
Michael: Who knows? Maybe one of the judges had a change of heart. Maybe a legal clerk brought something to their attention. The point is, the why doesn't matter. The what does. And the what is, we just got another chance.
Phyllis: Yeah, right. What are my chances? Really?
Daniel: Chances for what?
Lauren: Your mother's appeal just got reconsidered.
Phyllis: Yeah. Yeah.
Daniel: Mom, that rocks!
Daniel: Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Phyllis: I'm-- all right, I'm happy, I'm happy.
Phyllis: Um, hey, wait a second. You're supposed to be doing community service right now.
Daniel: Uh, yeah, but I got a paper due and I'm working overtime for Clear Springs.
Michael: No, no, no. Tell me you didn't skip out on your community service. Come on.
Phyllis: Yeah, you don't wanna make your parole officer mad.
Daniel: I already talked to them. I got it handled.
Karen: There's really nothing else we can do other than wait for the inevitable lawsuits to follow. Just let the lawyers battle it out in court.
Neil: Karen, I can't tell you how much I appreciate you jumping in and handling things.
Karen: It's no problem. Although, my boss may not be as forgiving, I gotta tell ya. Considering I have an entire stack of work on my desk that I can't even see over.
Neil: I'll talk to him.
Karen: He can be tough.
Neil: I hear he's very fair.
Neil: Mm-hmm. I'll let you in on a little secret-- you feed him properly and he's putty in your hands.
Karen: Oh, good. Well, then maybe he would be interested in joining me for dinner tonight at my place and a movie marathon.
Neil: Mmm. He might be persuaded.
Karen: Mm. Good. 'Cause I already rented the movies.
Neil: Without consulting him?
Karen: I already know that Jack Nicholson is your favorite actor.
Neil: True. True.
Neil: I love Jack Nicholson. That's true.
Karen: "The Departed"?
Neil: "The Departed"-- I haven't seen.
Karen: Are you kidding me? No, no, no, no, okay, okay, okay, so we have "the departed," and we have my favorite, we may not get to it, but...
Neil: Which is probably "Witches of Eastwick," right?
Karen: No, no, no, no, no. "Prizzi's Honor." (Imitating Jack Nicholson in "Prizzi's Honor") do I ice her? Do I marry her? (Normal voice) he was so incredible in that movie and so was, um... what's her name? What's her name? Uh, you know, oh, wait--
(Cell phone buzzing)
Karen: Excuse me.
Neil: Sure. I, um, I actually have to-- I have to go. I'll talk to you later.
Man: Well, we've checked her electrolytes and run a kidney function test. Um, her platelet count is within normal range. She appears to be stable as of now.
Nick: As of now? Do you expect that to change?
Man: I can't predict anything at this time. Um, we'll continue to monitor her and keep her on the medication prescribed.
Victor: Doctor, there must be something you can do. I mean, you're the specialist in your field. You're the top of the game. That's why I flew you out here.
Man: We're doing everything we can, Mr. Newman. If--if you'd like to consult someone else--
Nikki: Thank you, Doctor.
Victor: I'm gonna have a word with him.
Brad: Was that the doctor from Johns Hopkins?
Brad: What did he say?
Nick: Nothing. He didn't say anything. It's just wait and see. He doesn't know anything more than the other doctors.
Nikki: He can't even tell us why her blood pressure is fluctuating. Nothing.
Brad: When did that start happening?
J.T.: Last night. Her hands were swollen and her blood pressure shot up a couple of times.
Nick: But it's back to normal now.
Brad: Why didn't anyone call me?
J.T.: Victoria's been our main concern, Brad.
Brad: I understand that, J.T., but somebody should've called me.
Heather: I... I don't know what to say. I mean, this doesn't make any sense. You're my father? No, you're my mother's friend, Paul.
Paul: I should've told you years ago, really.
Heather: Why didn't you?
Paul: I didn't wanna make things harder for you.
Heather: Harder? It couldn't have been any harder! Do you even understand what it is like living and believing that Robert the abuser was my father? Knowing that he hit my mother and wondering that if I had that within me-- that I had something violent in me and I could lose control and hurt someone like he did? It was a relief when I found out he wasn't my father, but it was so painful because... I knew that my real father didn't care. That you didn't care. You didn't care what happened to me!
Paul: That's not true. I did care.
Heather: That's bull! Because if you cared, you would've done something about it if you wanted me in your life. I can't even believe this. I can't even tell you how many nights I sat up just wondering... if you had other kids that you loved more and if you had another family.
Paul: No, you don't understand.
Heather: Do you understand that every single time my mother talked to a man, I would wonder, maybe he's my dad. Why didn't you tell me? When we were in Genoa City when I was a kid, why didn't you tell me then?
Paul: Because things were so complicated for your mother and--
Heather: Complicated? They were complicated because she was in an abusive relationship. Which you turned your head away from.
Paul: I didn't turn my head--
Heather: Yes, you did! You sat there and you walked away and you let us suffer!
Paul: I didn't know about it.
Heather: How can you say this was for us? And for our own good? Because this was for you. No, this was what you wanted.
Paul: Really, it wasnít.
Heather: Why--why are you telling me this now? What is it? What--what... what do you want from me?
Paul: I don't want anything. I really donít. I was hoping that maybe I could make up--
Heather: That what? What you could tell me and I could forgive you and I could be your daughter?
Heather: No. No, you know what? I know why you're telling me this now. It's because I know about Sheila Carter.
Heather: The woman that you kidnapped. Okay? And don't even think for a second that your little speech is gonna keep me from pressing charges.
Paul: Sheila? What the hell does this have to do with Sheila Carter?
Heather: I know exactly what you're doing right now. You're trying to pull the father card so I don't prosecute you.
Paul: Prosecute me? Prosecute me for what?
Heather: I will find evidence to make sure you are charged with kidnapping and false imprisonment.
Paul: You... you are way off base here.
Heather: Am I?
Paul: Yes, you are. I-I had no idea you were even looking into the death of Sheila Carter.
Heather: Your friends didn't tip you off?
Paul: Heather, what makes you think I kidnapped Sheila? Do you have any idea what she did? She built a cell that looked exactly like Fen's nursery. She would've done anything to get her hands on Laurenís baby.
Heather: And you would've done anything to stop her-- which is why you locked her up and put her in her own cell.
Paul: You may never wanna speak to me again, but if you open this up, the person you're gonna hurt the most... is not me. It's Lauren. And trust me, she has suffered enough.
Michael: Psychos don't always play by the handbook.
Paul: No, you're right. I mean, I thought I was one step ahead of her the whole time. But what's a little kidnapping for the better good, right?
Heather: I heard you outside of Indigo. Hey, it is my duty to report you, regardless of my filial association. To be honest, I was wrestling with this. I-I felt bad, because you know what? I thought that you were a good guy. And you were my mother's friend, Paul. And you'd been nice to me since I moved here. And I hated that I would have to charge you with a crime. But you know what? Now? I don't feel bad about it.
Phyllis: Hey, Daniel, how are you?
Daniel: I'm good.
Phyllis: Give me your phone. Give me your phone.
Phyllis: Give me your phone. I'm good, too, Daniel, thank you.
Phyllis: You're not gonna report me to the work release board, are you?
Sharon: For what?
(Cell phone ringing)
Nick: Hey, Daniel, how's your mom doing?
Phyllis: I'm good. I have some good news.
Nick: Hey, what are you doing on Danielís phone?
Phyllis: Listen, I don't have a lot of time.
Nick: I can actually use some good news for a change.
Phyllis: How's Victoria?
Nick: It's hard to say. Her blood pressure shot up again last night. Now it's back to normal. Honestly, the doctors have no idea what's going on with her. I'm starting to think she's not gonna wake up.
Phyllis: No, no, no, no, no, no, think good thoughts. Think good thoughts.
Nick: Yeah, Mom's, uh, trying to stay positive, but she's starting to fall apart. And Dad's on a mission to bring in every doctor in the world who thinks they can help her.
Sharon: Is there any change with Victoria?
Phyllis: No, it's the same.
Nick: Hey, so, uh, what was your good news?
Phyllis: Oh, you know, never mind. It's nothing.
Nick: No, no, no, what's going on?
Phyllis: No, it's just, um, the appellate court has decided to revisit my case.
Nick: Are you serious? That is amazing! What are your chances?
Phyllis: Well, I-I don't-- I really don't think that they-- they consider an appeal unless there's real merit to the case, right?
(Cell phone ringing)
Maggie: Detective Sullivan.
Paul: It's me.
Maggie: Hey. How'd it go with Heather?
Paul: Listen, can you meet me over at Lauren and Michaelís?
Maggie: That bad?
Paul: Yeah. She knows about Sheila.
Maggie: I had a bad feeling about that. She was asking me questions about her this morning. How much does she know?
Paul: She overheard me talking at Indigo the other night. She knows everything.
Victor: A call into the Mayo clinic for another specialist.
Brad: Victor, I don't know what good it's going to do to call another doctor. They're on top of it here.
Nikki: All we can do is pray that she wakes up soon. That's all.
Victor: I will not leave a stone unturned to find the best man possible. Doctors are not infallible.
J.T.: I agree.
Nikki: I'm not gonna have my daughter poked and prodded and tested any more than she has to be.
J.T.: None of us want that, Nikki.
Brad: Listen, Nikki, I obviously know how upset you are, but Victoria and the baby are very important to me, as well.
Nikki: Brad, we did not intentionally exclude you. We didnít. Last night, the only thing on my mind was worrying if my child was gonna die.
[Nikki goes into Victoriaís room]
Nick: So I don't know when Phyllis' case is gonna be heard, or if she even has a chance, but I can hope, right? It sure would be great if she got released before you had the baby.
Nikki: Hey, Sweetheart. Brad's here.
Brad: Hi, Vicki.
Nick: I'm gonna go stretch my legs.
Brad: Hey. You have your favorite silk pillowcase. You couldn't sleep without that thing.
Nikki: Yeah, we've been taking very good care of her.
Brad: So I hear the baby is healthy. Now we just have to get you healthy, Mom.
Brad: I felt the baby kick. Did you feel that?
Neil: Thanks a lot. I appreciate it. All right, good job. So... looks like someone is vying for your spot.
Karen: Yeah. Neil, what was that earlier today? I mean, when you just... kinda bolted from the room?
Neil: Yeah, Karen, you know, when you mentioned that movie, "Prizzi's Honor"?
Neil: It happened to be Drucillaís favorite movie.
Karen: Of course it was. I'm sorry.
Neil: No, no, no, I'm the--I'm the one who should be sorry. I shouldn't have left the room the way I did. I, uh, I just--I still find it very overwhelming.
Karen: You know, Neil, maybe we should just back up for a minute, okay?
Neil: No, no, no, no, no.
Neil: That's-- that's not what I want.
Karen: Why don't--look, just come over for dinner tonight, and we'll talk about it. We'll talk about working together, dating, you figuring out whatever it is you really want.
Neil: About dinner-- Sharon asked me to help her with the Clear Springs effort. She's doing everything by herself while Nikki's in the hospital. I-I canít.
Karen: No, no, no, no. That--that's fine. I'll wait up. Just--just come over tonight after that. I'll--I'll wait up for you. We gotta talk about this.
Neil: Unfortunately, I'm working late. I hate to say yes and then not be able to make it. Maybe another time?
Michael: Heather Stevens, the assistant district attorney, is your daughter?!
Paul: I told her the first time today.
Michael: Oh! Oh, it makes sense now! I couldn't understand why you helped the assistant district attorney gather evidence against Phyllis, but now--now it makes total sense!
Lauren: She deserved to know the truth.
Maggie: How'd she take the news?
Paul: Well, I think it might've gone better if she hadn't overheard me talk about Sheila.
Michael: That is why she is asking all these-- that's why she's asking all these questions!
Paul: She overheard us at Indigo. Nobody did it on purpose.
Michael: And that is supposed to make a difference?! You kidnapped Sheila.
Paul: And you... went along with it.
Lauren: How much do you think that Heather overheard?
Paul: Enough to know I was keeping her prisoner in the warehouse.
Lauren: Oh, boy.
Michael: Great. Great timing.
Lauren: Heather was over here earlier. I mean, she was asking all sorts of questions about Sheila. What do you think she'd do if she learned the truth?
Michael: I told you she was digging for a reason. The assistant district attorney does not make social calls.
Maggie: She wanted to talk to me about Sheila, too.
Paul: I am so sorry.
Michael: Oh, sorry? We're gonna be waving to each other across the cell block.
Lauren: Okay, well, so what do we do?
Paul: I will take care of it.
Michael: Oh, that makes me feel so much better. You basically lobbed a grenade into this young woman's life. You neglected to tell her after all these years you were her father. You are the last person she is gonna show leniency to.
Paul: If Heather comes after me--
Michael: We'll all go down with you! She saw us all at Indigo!
Lauren: Wait, so that makes us an accessory, doesn't it?
Michael: Heather does not do anything, she doesn't inhale without it being by the book. This is not good.
Maggie: Now wait a minute, you know better than anyone else how words can be misconstrued. Let's not jump to the worst case scenario.
Michael: Well, you wouldn't, because you weren't there.
Lauren: Sheila was a killer.
Maggie: I know. Heather jumped to conclusions. If she had any hard evidence against Paul, she'd already have arrested him.
Paul: You know, maybe if we give her some time, it'll just--
Michael: Time for what? To build a case? Time to figure out how we're all complicit?
Lauren: Okay, I can't go through this again, Michael. Honestly, I don't have it in me.
Michael: I know, Sweetie.
Lauren: I can't do it.
Michael: No, no, no. No, you wonít. She wonít. If your daughter comes after us, we're gonna figure out a way to stop her.
Heather: (Sighs) you missed your community service appointment.
Daniel: And I talked to my parole officer, and they said it was okay.
Heather: This isn't the first time.
Daniel: My stepfather was in the garage that collapsed. I'm working overtime here and looking after my little sister because her dad is at the hospital. And my mom--my mom is in jail, but you already know that, don't you?
Heather: When you make a commitment, you keep it. I'm gonna talk to your P.O. about a violation hearing.
Daniel: Are you serious? You can't do that!
Heather: I can. And I will.
(Cell phone ringing)
Phyllis: Hey, it's me.
Daniel: Hey, uh, what's up?
Phyllis: Maddy called from day care. She said that Summer's been crying. She thinks she has an earache. Will you check on her, please?
Daniel: Yeah, I'll head right over there as soon as my meeting is done.
J.T.: I'll try to keep you posted from now on.
Brad: I'd really appreciate it.
J.T.: The last 24 hours have been a roller coaster. Victoria's blood pressure's has been up, then it's back to normal. They tell us she's stable, then the alarm goes off again and she's not. Then they say it's... it's all within the guidelines, so we have nothing to worry about. I-I don't know when to worry anymore, so I'm just doing it all the time.
Brad: I noticed that her hands were swollen.
J.T.: Yeah, I don't think this doctor knows anything more than her Ob/Gyn.
Brad: Listen, I really don't care which doctor is looking after Victoria, as long as she and the baby come out of this healthy.
Phyllis: She's warm.
Phyllis: Yeah. Did you call the doctor?
Daniel: Her temperature's 99. The doctor said she's just probably teething. If she keeps tugging at her ear, I guess I'll take her in.
Phyllis: You know what? There's some frozen bagels in the freezer, she can chew on.
Daniel: I couldn't find her teething ring.
Phyllis: Did you check the side pocket in the diaper bag?
Daniel: Yes. Nothing.
Phyllis: Yeah? Hey, Sweetie. Hey, Sweetie. Oh, my baby girl. All right, you should, uh, you should take her from me before somebody catches us. I love you. I love you. All right, you-- you gotta take her. You gotta take her. Just go ahead.
Daniel: Come on, you wanna sit like this with me?
Phyllis: Here. Go. Go.
Daniel: Sit like this with me? Let's go. Let's go. Back to the playpen room, okay?
Phyllis: Bye, Sweetie.
Daniel: Say bye to Mommy. Bye, Mommy.
Phyllis: Bye, Sweetie.
Heather: You know, this is a flagrant violation of your work release program.
Phyllis: Um, this isn't-- um, I can explain what's going on here.
Heather: No, the--the rules are clear. Okay, you're on work release to do your job, not to visit your family.
Daniel: This is my fault. I should not have brought her in here.
Phyllis: No, it's--it's-- my--my daughter--she's sick. She--she needs a parent with her right now.
Heather: She has a father.
Phyllis: Yeah, I know she has a father. She has a very loving father. And he's with his sister right now who's very sick. You know this!
Heather: I'm sure there are many capable people who can look after your daughter.
Phyllis: You know what? There are a lot of capable people. There are daycare workers, there are nannies-- there are a lot of capable people. But they're not her mother.
Heather: Look, I'm sorry, but you were apprised of the work release terms, okay? You--you have no personal contact with friends or family members unless its business related.
Phyllis: Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me right now? Do you know how hard it's been? I walk past that day care center and I don't even look at my daughter. You have no idea what this has been like for me! You know what? I don't even need to explain this to you. You're not a mother. You don't understand what it's like. You would do anything for your child.
Daniel: Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute.
Phyllis: Let her call.
Daniel: What are you doing?
Phyllis: I don't care.
Daniel: Why are you doing this? Seriously, why are you doing this?
Daniel: You wanna lock us up over violating the rules? Are you serious? Where is your heart? The first time something like this happens, you're right there to catch us in it and--and...
Phyllis: Thank you.
Paul: Heather is angry at me, not you. I will take the blame for whatever comes our way.
Michael: Like hell you will. Admit nothing. She has no proof.
Lauren: She heard us talking.
Michael: So what? We were talking.
Maggie: From a-a legal standpoint, that means nothing, what she heard. It's all hearsay.
Michael: We could've been in the alley outside of Indigo just spinning tales. Had a couple of drinks, a couple of "What if" scenarios. I mean, who knows? Heather might've had a drink or two herself and misunderstood.
Lauren: All right, but what if she finds proof?
Michael: How? She has nothing solid if we don't talk.
Paul: What about your brother?
Lauren: And Phyllis?
Michael: They're not gonna say anything, trust me. Sheila was a psycho. Everybody wanted that case closed.
Maggie: The D.A.'s office is swamped. They're not gonna let her run with this unless she has solid proof.
Michael: Which she doesnít.
Paul: Unless she comes up with something. Look, if she digs hard enough, she's, at the very least, she's gonna see all the inconsistencies. And what? You get disbarred. I lose my license.
Lauren: Yeah, and we all go to jail.
Sharon: We're waiting for the engineering report to tell us which buildings are safe and which ones will need to be demolished.
Karen: What about the retailers?
Sharon: You know, that's the hardest part. Nikki and Victoria really wanted something unique.
Sharon: So a lot of people saw this as the opportunity of a lifetime, and they poured their life savings into this development.
Karen: Have you spoken to the insurance company?
Sharon: Yeah, I have.
Sharon: Well, the lawyers are looking into it. And I know that Nikki would wanna be fair.
Karen: Yeah, yeah, she would. Well, let's wait and see what they come back with, right?
Sharon: Sounds like a plan.
Neil: Hello. I am here and ready to answer any questions you might have.
Sharon: Well, Karen already answered them, so we're done.
Neil: She did? What about the insurance?
Sharon: Don't worry.
Neil: Okay. In that case, I'm onto my next fire.
Sharon: What was that about?
Karen: He just got busted.
(Knock on door)
Daniel: Hey. I just wanted to say thank you for not turning my mom in. And I'm sorry if I said anything that was out of line.
Heather: (Sniffles) okay.
Man: Mr. and Mrs. Newman?
Nikki: How is she?
Man: Her hands are swelling again. Um, her blood pressure is still fluctuating, but not diagnostically.
Victor: Why isn't the medication working?
Man: We don't know that it isn't. I'm ordering a kidney function test, and, um, I'll also have the nurse draw some more blood.
J.T.: Another blood test?
Man: They monitor her platelet count and hemocratic value.
Nikki: What does that mean?
Man: Red blood cells. Um, a high value can be a sign of preeclampsia, so can a low platelet count.
Brad: There's gonna be something else you can give her for her blood pressure.
Man: We are limited by the pregnancy. Certain drugs can be transferred through the placenta and are harmful to the fetus.
Victor: Tell me, Doctor, why does it seem to be so difficult to make a diagnosis?
Man: Without talking to the patient about other possible symptoms, I'm not prepared to speculate or take drastic action. Not until I know more.
Heather: Thank you.
Daniel: It's cool. We all have our bad days.
Heather: Not like me, trust me.
Daniel: Oh, you wanna start to compare? You really want me to get into this? I mean, you don't have the tough D.A. breathing down your neck.
Daniel: You... you got a little...
Heather: Right here?
Daniel: Yeah. Right here.
Heather: Thank you.
Daniel: Thank you.
Heather: For what?
Daniel: For being human. I was starting to get worried that you only had crankcase oil running through your veins.
Heather: Well, my job requires me to put my feeling aside.
Daniel: Well, let's just say that you're really good at your job.
Heather: Okay, I-I still intend to call your parole officer to verify what you said.
Daniel: So much for that whole "Human have a heart" thing, huh? Didn't really last long. Well, I gotta get back to work.
Heather: Hi, this is Heather Stevens from the D.A.'s office. Hi, are you in charge of handling Phyllis Newman's work release? Okay, great. I'd like to order a random inspection sometime over the next few days. Okay, thank you.
Sharon: Thank you.
Neil: Hey, Sharon.
Neil: Is that lunch?
Sharon: Yeah, I'm gonna take this back to the office.
Neil: I'll tell you what, I'll walk you back. Hold on. Um, excuse me, can I get a double cappuccino, nonfat, please? Thanks.
Sharon: So I hear you and I are working late tonight on Clear Springs?
Neil: We are? Oh. Yeah--yeah, we are.
Sharon: Neil, I feel so used.
Neil: Yeah, listen, I'm sorry. I-I didn't know how else to, you know, break the date.
Sharon: I thought you two were hitting it off?
Neil: We are. Karen's terrific.
Sharon: Well, if you're not ready, you're not ready.
Neil: I thought I was.
Sharon: And what changed your mind?
Neil: Jack Nicholson.
Sharon: The actor?
Neil: Well, no, not the actor. Uh, the movie, "Prizzi's Honor. Karen rented it for us.
Sharon: Oh, that was one of Dru's favorite movies.
Neil: Yeah, it was. Maybe if we'd have just... found the body, you know?
Sharon: Neil, she's not coming back.
Neil: Yeah. Yeah, I just keep thinking about it over and over. I can't move on. It just... I don't know what else to do.
Sharon: Well, I think about Cassie every day. You know, I imagine her up in heaven, watching me. And I know that she-- she would want me to be happy and move on with my life. I think that she would be miserable if she thought I was unhappy. You know, she wouldn't want me sitting around at home, crying my eyes out. Although, some days, I... I do that. But I am moving on with my life. She wants me to be happy. Just like Dru wants you to be happy.
Michael: You talk to Heather about this, we all go down.
Paul: Look, whatever I do, you won't be implicated.
Lauren: I know this has been hard for you, carrying this paternity secret all these years. And you know I want things to work out for you and your daughter.
Paul: Yeah. I should've told her a long time ago.
Lauren: Okay, but you just have to consider my family here, okay? Please, please don't tell her the truth about Sheila. I mean, for my sake-- for our son.
Paul: Have more faith in me than that, will you?
Michael: The D.A. took Maggie's word about what happened. Sheila was a psycho. Case closed. But if Heather starts looking at that evidence carefully?
Paul: You know, I will handle this in my own way, all right?
Maggie: Bye, Guys.
Lauren: Just tell me-- tell me Paul's not gonna do something we're all gonna regret.
Karen: Just catching up.
Neil: Anything urgent?
Karen: Well, it's all urgent. None of it's urgent, urgent. Why?
Neil: Well, if you don't stop soon, we're not gonna make our dinner reservation.
Karen: I thought you had to work tonight.
Neil: You heard Sharon. It's already been covered.
Karen: Are you sure?
Neil: Get your coat.
Phyllis: Hey, that thing with Heather-- that was weird, right? You thought it was weird?
Daniel: Yeah. I found her crying in the break room.
Daniel: I don't know. She did something nice. It probably hurt her.
Phyllis: How much you wanna bet she goes back to her office and she turns me in?
Daniel: I don't think that's gonna happen.
Phyllis: And you know this because?
Daniel: I would just keep an eye out for random spot checks in the next couple of days. I heard her make the phone call.
Phyllis: Oh, of course, of course, that's so sweet. Because that is the assistant D.A. we all know and love.
Daniel: I think she's a little more complex than I originally thought.
Michael: Yeah. Thanks.
Michael: Uh... you knew about Heather and you didn't tell me?
Lauren: It was a secret.
Michael: What about our "No secrets" policy?
Lauren: It was Paul's secret. I didn't think it was up to me to break his confidence. If he'd have wanted you to know that Heather was his daughter, he would've told you.
Michael: Phyllis would've had a lot easier time with the judge if Paul hadn't helped his daughter.
Lauren: I feel bad about that.
Michael: Yeah, well, we'll all feel a whole lot worse if he talks to Heather about Sheila. Could bring us all down.
Paul: Nothing like burying yourself in your work so you don't feel any emotion. I should know, I'm an expert. Look, I wanna make things right between us.
Heather: You can't.
Paul: You know, I should've told you a long time ago who I was. But somewhere along the line, I'd convinced myself I was doing the right thing for you. That's the truth. Okay, I admit I was wrong.
Heather: You've already said that. It doesn't change anything.
Paul: I saw Phyllis shopping at the boutique for baby clothes. Something about her-- her voice was wrong. Her walk was off, something about her body language. So I followed her outside. I didn't recognize the car. I knew something was up, so I trailed her to a warehouse. And I saw a cell that looked exactly like Lauren and Michael's nursery. Okay, then I knew. I knew it was Sheila. So I locked her in her own cell. I made a mistake. I should've called the police right away. But she has escaped from the police before. So I didn't want to do that. Every time she has escaped, somebody died. I was scared. I didn't know what to do. Maggie showed up and you know the rest. You wanna charge me with a crime? For what I did to Sheila? Or for what I did to you?
Man: Uh, we believe Victoria could have a condition called Preeclampsia.
Brad: Which is?
Man: It's a pregnancy related circulation problem.
Victor: Is that what's causing her fluctuating blood pressure?
Man: Yes, it could very well be. Now Victoria's blood pressure has been spiking intermittently, so we need to continue to monitor her. And I'd also like to look at her labs again just to check for any abnormalities.
J.T.: What--what is that? What does that mean for her and the baby?
Man: It's a serious disease, uh, that can affect the mother's kidneys, liver function, brain, placenta. It can deprive the baby of oxygen and, uh, cause maternal seizures. Now that phase-- it's called eclampsia. And that's what can happen if this is left untreated.
Victor: So now that you've made the diagnosis, you will treat her as quickly as possible?
Nikki: Will it harm her if you treat her and she doesn't have this?
Man: Well, unfortunately, there's no cure for Preeclampsia. Her condition can remain mild, or it, uh, could become severe. If Victoria's condition progresses, the only true cure is to deliver the baby, which is why we've administered the steroids. I've asked Dr. Okamura to come in and run some more tests. Really, at this point, we just need more time to monitor whether or not the baby is stable or not.
Victor: So what you're saying is that my grandson might not survive?
Man: I'm very sorry. Will you excuse me?
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Gloria: Test the cream. On myself.
Phyllis: What, are you shocked to see me? I suggest you get used to it, because I'm not going anywhere.
Man: I regret to tell you that I do not believe the fetus is capable of living outside the womb at this time.
