Nick: Some Thanksgiving, huh?

Phyllis: Yeah. My pie was a bust, but freedom never tasted so good.

Nick: I was talking about, uh, the fact that my parents can't decide what's best for my sister.

Phyllis: Uh-huh. I know. That was levity. I was trying some levity. I guess my levity muscle went soft in prison.

Nick: Oh.

Phyllis: Yeah. How's this, um... I guess my emergency room hospital room Thanksgiving dinner, uh, did not encourage peace.

Nick: Well, you get an "A" for effort. You know, if Vick would just wake up, we wouldn't have to deal with mediators and court, and everything would be great.

Phyllis: Yeah. You know, let's try this. Let's just--close your eyes. Close your eyes. Okay, so--so... it's next year, and--close your eyes-- and a miracle happened already, and we're all sitting around the table. Close your eyes. And your father is carving the turkey instead of trying to carve up your mom in court, right?

Nick: Mm-hmm.

Phyllis: And we're all laughing. And Victoria's there with her son. And he just threw mashed potatoes in Summer's hair. And I say to her, "Would you teach your son some manners, please?" And all she can say is, "Oh, my gosh, he's so cute!"

Nick: Yeah. I think you're crazy.

Phyllis: Close your eyes.

Nick: I'll close my eyes.

Nick: Nope. Still flat on your back. You know, I know what's going on. Remember when you were at boarding school and your tennis lessons?

Phyllis: What are you talking about?

Nick: Tennis. She was awful. Awful.

Phyllis: Oh, come on, Victoria, you gonna let him trash talk you like that?

Nick: No, it's true. She was awful. Every day at 2:00 she would get this mysterious headache, need to take a rest. So the headmaster would call Mom. I actually thought it was hysterical. I'd tease her endlessly about it. I called her Racket. 'Cause, you know, it worked on two levels.

Phyllis: Because she was playing tennis and because she was pulling a racket by faking an illness, right?

Nick: You got it. See, I'm clever like that.

Phyllis: Yeah. All right.

Nick: My mom wouldn't be able to get her to play, so she put me on the phone, and I was like, "Come on, Racket, you're not fooling anyone. Get off your butt and go play tennis." So she would. So let's go, Racket. Let's go play some tennis.

Victor: What did the hospital administrator say?

Michael: The court will appoint somebody to be Victoria's advocate. Somebody impartial. The doctors will educate the guardian about Victoria's condition.

Victor: In other words, what happens to my daughter is now in the hands of an outsider?

Michael: Unless you and her mother can agree on medical treatment.

Victor: That's not gonna happen.

Michael: Then once the guardian has all the pertinent information, all parties will meet with the judge who will hear all points of view, and then decide on what medical treatment is administered.

J.T.: When's the hearing?

Michael: Hasn't been set yet.

Victor: Whatever happened to "Time is of the essence," for heaven's sake? Victoria's survival now in the hands of some judge's calendar? What's that?

Brad: What's going on?

David: Hey.

Nikki: I spoke to the mediator. They have no idea who's gonna be appointed Victoria's guardian.

Brad: I hate the idea of a stranger making this decision. A stranger who can't know what this baby means to her.

Nikki: Yeah, well, Victor's not a stranger and he doesn't get it either.

Brad: When will we know who the guardian is?

David: They're supposed to expedite proceedings in these cases. But the court still hasn't set a time.

Nikki: It is surreal that a child's life depends on somebody's court calendar. But at the same time, every hour that they delay is more time for that baby to have a chance to survive.

Sharon: We have to stop reading that newspaper. You know, if I were more self-centered, I'd wonder why you get so much more coverage than me. And then I remember, oh, yeah, I'm just the wife of the evil senator.

Jack: Well, I've certainly gotten better press. But at least this is in the editorial section, not on the front page.

Sharon: Fine, I'll bite. What does it say?

Jack: "Strike one-- Senator Abbott admitted to corporate fraud. Strike two--the development he championed collapsed, causing injury and death."

Sharon: Oh, well, that's not so bad. You know, they're not saying that you caused injury and death. They're merely implying that you caused injury and death.

Jack: "Strike three-- he's suspected in a homicide."

Sharon: Mm-hmm, and here "Suspect" means "Guilty of homicide."

Jack: "With so much going on in his own life, how can he possibly serve the people of Wisconsin? The Senator should resign."

Sharon: Why don't they just say, "Call and write the ethics committee and take him down"?

Jack: Actually, they do better than that. "Phone numbers and e-mail addresses of members of the ethics committee can be found on our web site." Which implies, call and write.

Sharon: Oh, my God.

Jack: So every online loser without a life is gonna set aside their video games and ignore their blogs long enough to inundate the ethics committee with ignorant indignation.

Kevin: I'm not gonna put any pressure on Jana to marry me. She's got so much going on in her life right now.

Gloria: I thought she already turned down your proposal.

Kevin: Well, she did.

Gloria: And that should be the end of it. If you have any pride at all.

Kevin: Uh, maybe as far as you're concerned--

Gloria: You know, I just think it's wonderful that they sent all the e-mail addresses for every member of the ethics committee.

Kevin: Let me guess, you're gonna e-mail all of them?

Gloria: You bet I am. Keep my mind off John's will and that letter. Okay, here we go. "Dear senators, I am appalled that Senator Jack Abbott, who claims to represent the interests of our district would act with such impunity."

Kevin: Mmm. Would act like he's above the law. You don't wanna sound too formal.

Gloria: That's good. That's good. "Would act like he's above the law." I'll save impunity for the next one.

Kevin: Ah. And who is that one gonna be from?

Gloria: I don't know, maybe a concerned citizen. He sounds more formal than "Disillusioned voter."

Kevin: And who's after him? Angry in Genoa City?

Gloria: Oh, believe me, I can do better than that. "If Senator Abbott does not resign, he should--"

Kevin: Be drawn and quartered, uh, tarred and feathered, burned at the stake.

Gloria: All of that. And "Prosecuted to the full extent of the law."

Sharon: Isn't this what you expected, Jack?

Jack: I suppose it comes with the territory. It's just... it's wrong. And it's distracting and it's not fair. That's the end of my rant.

Sharon: Okay, listen... don't forget why you became a senator in the first place. And why I spent all that time through that awful campaign smiling so much that my cheeks are still hurting from it. Because... you wanted to do good, and you still do. So maybe I should hold up a mirror to your face and make you repeat the words that you once said to me. Don't ever give them the satisfaction of knowing they got to you. Okay, Senator Abbott? Son of John Abbott, take your own advice.

Jack: Have I told you lately just how much I love you?

Kevin: Still doing our civic duty, are we?

Gloria: Mm-hmm. What do you think about the screen name "Widowwoman"?

Kevin: I think she sounds like the villain in a superhero movie.

Gloria: Yeah, too poor pitiful me, huh?

Kevin: Yeah. Maybe something-- maybe something with Genoa City in it or the county name.

Gloria: Walworth? Walworth... Walworthit?

Kevin: I like it. Snappy.

Gloria: Okay. "I was appalled by the fraudulent--"

Woman: I can come back.

Gloria: No, no, Molly, that's okay.

Kevin: Yeah, Mom was just, um, e-mailing the--

Gloria: Olympic committee. Marian Jones thing--shameful.

Kevin: Yeah. Yeah, it sure was. So, uh, what can we do for ya?

Molly: There's a problem with the international web site. When a consumer puts a Jabot product into their cart and continues to shop, the cart empties.

Kevin: Well, that is a quick way to go out of business. I'm on it.

Gloria: Uh, anything else, Molly?

Molly: Nope.

Gloria: Well, then thank you very much, Dear.

Kevin: Marion Jones? That's the best you could come up with?

Gloria: I didn't hear you come up with anything better.

Kevin: You're losing your touch.

Gloria: Never. Never. Never. Now where was I? Ah, yes. "The fraudulent practices of Senator Jack Abbott. I'm the mother of two young boys."

Kevin: Uh, young boys?

Gloria: All right, relatively young. Does that make you happy?

Kevin: Sure.

Gloria: "And I was extremely disappointed after reading that Senator Jack Abbott--"

Jack: I'm being hammered for fraud without ever mentioning that I saved the company. That I didn't profit from it personally, and that I wasn't indicted.

Gloria: "Even though he clearly should've been. It seems like yet another example of one set of rules for the rich and powerful, and another one for the rest of us. As for his involvement with—

Jack: The whole Clear Springs disaster, they lay it on me, like I planted a bomb or something, without ever mentioning that Victor Newman is responsible. And then without any evidence at all, they tie me to—

Gloria: "The death of Mr. Ji Min Kim, a horrible event that never received a complete investigation." No, no, no, no. "A full and fair investigation."

Jack: Because Victor's probably responsible for his death, too. Whether he did it himself or paid somebody else to do it, because he—

Gloria: "Permanently silenced the one man who could expose him for the liar and fraud that he really is. How could I suggest to my sons that they enter public service--?"

Kevin: You never suggested we enter public service.

Gloria: This isn't me talking, Kevin. This is "Walworthit."

Kevin: Ah, right, right, right, my bad. My bad.

Gloria: All right, where was I? "Enter public service-- enter public service... when men like Jack Abbott have polluted the senate. A voting mom."

Gloria: I feel so much better.

Michael: The hospital administrator, call her Ms. Morton, is coming in here of her own accord. And you must understand, she is under no obligation to speak to us. She is doing us a courtesy.

Victor: As long as she has answers, she and I will get along fine, all right?

Michael: All right. Ms. Morton.

Victor: Ms. Morton, let's get to the point. My daughter has Preeclampsia. If they do not perform a C-section right now, she will die.

Ms. Morton: I am familiar with her diagnosis.

Victor: And if she dies because the hospital delays, I will bury you with lawsuits.

Michael: Uh, Mr. Newman feels and I agree, that the case is not being handled with expediency, especially since the life of a young woman is at stake. That would make a very good basis for a lawsuit.

J.T.: Ms. Morton, Victoria's my fiancée. If there's anything we can do to make this-- this happen faster, please help us out.

Ms. Morton: Our lawyer has already contacted Judge Kirvet's office and explained that speed is of the essence. We're doing what we can to resolve this situation. Because your family is unable to do so.

J.T.: Thank you. Thank you.

Victor: Thank you.

Michael: Thank you for your time.

Victor: Doing everything they can? Connie, contact Judge Rudolph Krivet's--

Michael: No, no, no. This is not a good idea to contact the judge, Victor.

Nikki: What did your attorney say?

Brad: As part of the procedure, the court will serve you with a summons.

Nikki: This is happening too fast.

Brad: Of course, you can't be held in contempt if you don't know when to show up in court.

Nikki: You mean, if they can't serve me?

Brad: That's right.

Nikki: If they can't find me, then they'll have to postpone the hearing. And that would give the baby more time.

David: Uh, wait a minute. Nikki, do you really think that's wise?

Nikki: Well, I'm not gonna leave the country or something. I just won't be so easy to find.

Victor: Rudolph, this is Victor Newman.

Michael: Right, Victor! Victor! Look, you pay me to do this.

Victor: One second, please.

Michael: Let me do this. Yes, hello, uh, Michael Baldwin. Mr. Newman's attorney. My apologies. I'm sorry. Mr. Newman is understandably distraught because of his daughter's medical condition, and just wanted to make sure that-- no, no, Sir, we're not suggesting that you need to be reminded that time is of the essence. It's just-- if there is anything that we may do to expedite the process-- oh, he's furious.

Victor: I don't give a damn.

Michael: No, no, uh, I-I must stress that Mr. Newman is emotionally upset--

Victor: Get it going!

Michael: He's emotionally upset and--and would never presume to otherwise contact you. It's just-- yes. Yes. I understand. Thank you. Thank you, your honor. Yeah. He understands that the matter is of some importance. Look, litigation 101-- you never contact the judge. It's bad form.

Victor: He understands this is of some importance? That's my daughter in there.

Michael: It's a breach of poor protocol.

Victor: I don't give a damn about protocol!

David: I really think you should reconsider.

Nikki: David, why wouldn't I make myself difficult to find if it will give my grandson more time?

David: Because Victor will use that against you-- say that you're not showing the court or legal procedure proper respect. You don't wanna antagonize the judge or the hospital attorneys.

Brad: Like Nikki said, she's not leaving the country, all right? It happens all the time that process servers can't find people quickly.

David: Yes, that is true in certain circumstances. But this is clearly different. Nikki, you've been at Victoria's bedside day and night from the moment she was brought into this hospital. Of course they're gonna know that your absence is intentional. I'm telling you, Victor and his attorney will find a way to use this against you, to call your judgment into question, and every damaging word they say will be done so in front of the guardian as well. In your absence, I might add, which cannot be good for you.

Brad: Listen, the bottom line is, the baby needs more time. So if that means you need to take a good long walk until the court closes, that's what you need to do. That gives him one more day, Nikki.

David: And what if something happens to Victoria while you're pulling your disappearing act? Do you really wanna risk being away from her if her condition suddenly gets worse?

J.T.: How is she?

Nick: She's the same.

J.T.: It's weird how not getting any worse has become good news. You know, your dad's working-- he's working hard to speed up this hearing so we can resolve this before she-- before she gets any worse. You know, I'm struggling with the fact that... you're in there holding your sister's hand and talking to her, but... you're willing to let her die.

Nick: All right, you hold on a second. I am not willing to let my sister die. I'm trying to give her baby a chance to live, J.T. I'm trying to look past what I would want because I know that's what Victoria would want. Can you say the same for yourself?

J.T.: Yeah. I can. I can say the exact same. I've been here every day--

Phyllis: What are you, Guys, doing? Guys, Victoria needs all the positive energy she should get. I don't wanna be all new age-y on you, but really, when two men love her as much as you do and you're fighting, that's not good for her. It can't possibly help her. Why risk it?

Gloria: I promise-- I promise this is the last one. From, uh, "Wisconsinwidow" "I was appalled to learn that Senator Abbott threw his father's widow out of her house. Is there no end to his many horrendous--" oh, Molly!

Molly: I'll knock next time. Sorry.

Kevin: That's okay. Um, Mom here just found out that, um, Pluto is no longer a planet. She's just devastated. She's e-mailing NASA.

Gloria: Don't listen to him, Molly. He's kidding.

Molly: Right. Good one.

Kevin: Thanks. Uh, so what's up?

Molly: Uh, the Canadian store locater page-- the language selection defaults to French. Hakeem said to tell you.

Kevin: Ah. Merci. I love a puzzle. Anything else?

Molly: Yes. R&D called for Mrs. Bardwell twice about approving the prototype for the new perfume bottle.

Gloria: I promise-- I promise I'll take care of it, Molly.

Molly: Okay.

Gloria: Thank you.

Molly: Thank you.

Kevin: Okay, so we have got to go over these files and you're wanted in R&D, so is fun time over yet or what?

Gloria: Just about. I wanna send all of these e-mails to Jack's senate office so his staff can know how the voters feel about their boss. "Dump the Senator!" Send. "Jack should be stripped of his seat!" Send. "Widows against Jack Abbott!" Send! And "He doesn't not deserve his father's name." Send.

Kevin: Hey, hey, did you, uh, did you end up using my line?

Gloria: What, about Jack sucking the truth out of every room he enters?

Kevin: Yeah, yeah. That one was brilliant. I wanna get paid for that.

Gloria: When Jack Abbott gets thrown out of office, you will be well compensated.

Kevin: Excellent.

Jack: Yes, I understand that the editorial page is simply opinions. I just think my opinion as a state senator might be relevant to your readers. After everything you've written about me, I'd like to think it would be-- thanks for nothing. I can have a rebuttal if it's a paid ad. They'd be delighted to write my side of things if it comes to them as a paid advertisement, the bastards.

Sharon: Okay, I'm gonna take a stab at a statement here, because you need to take a deep breath and cool your head. How about... "An open letter to the voters..."

Jack: Can you believe this garbage?

Sharon: What garbage?

Jack: I asked my office to send a representative sample of phone calls and e-mails they've been getting.

Sharon: Jack, don't read that stuff. You know, it's--it's pointless.

Jack: "As a widow, I am appalled by Senator Abbott's treatment of his father's widow"? What the hell does that have to do with anything?

Sharon: Jack, don't read it.

Jack: "Senator Abbott sucks the truth out of any room he's in"?

Sharon: Okay. It's pointless. Soon enough, we're gonna know if this is a grassroots movement or if it's just a couple of crackpots who are making a lot of noise. And in either case, we do not descend to the level of those who, as you so eloquently put, write garbage.

Jack: You know what? When someone like this "Walworthit" who won't give her name, but will sign off as "Voting Mom"--

Sharon: Oh, at least you're taking my advice and not reading them.

Jack: It brings up the idea that I'm responsible for Ji Min Kim's death. All of that would go away if they'd just finish the damn investigation.

Sharon: Which is out of our control.

Jack: I have hired an outside agency.

Sharon: We don't want that to get out. They will have a field day with that-- justice bought and paid for, experts for hire. I guess you can't work with Paul.

Jack: No.

Sharon: Because of his personal relationship with Detective Sullivan.

Jack: Exactly.

Sharon: Did your guy find anything new?

Jack: No, Victor has covered his tracks pretty damn well.

Sharon: All right, listen, um, what if you point the finger at Victor and he's innocent? A father who is keeping vigil at his daughter's hospital bed while she's in a coma is not going to make you look good. Especially if Victor has no connection to this homicide.

Victor: Do you think the doctor will testify?

Michael: When the guardian is ready to make a recommendation, Dr. Webb and the other doctors will be called in to inform the judge of Victoria's condition, and they'll answer any technical questions.

Victor: Hold on a second. Dr. Webb? How is she?

Dr. Webb: Her condition is getting worse. Her blood pressure is 165/110. We've detected small amounts of fluid in her lungs and some vaginal spotting.

Victor: What will you tell the judge?

Dr. Webb: Exactly what I'm telling you. We don't know yet if the fetus is viable, but we do know that Victoria will die if we don't deliver.

Victor: But if you perform a C-section now, she will live?

Dr. Webb: Yes. She won't if we don't.

Victor: What will happen to the baby if you deliver now?

Dr. Webb: Well, intracranial hemorrhaging, uh, retinal problems, necrotizing enterocolitis, are all possibilities.

Michael: Despite the risk to the child, you still recommend delivery?

Dr. Webb: I'm informing you of Victoria's condition. Delivery is essential to her survival.

Victor: I thank you for your candor and your support. Thank you.

Nick: What did he say?

Victor: We're out of time.

Phyllis: We just saw Victoria. She looked so peaceful.

Victor: (Sighs)

Man: Mr. Newman? This is for you.

Victor: Thank you.

Man: Do you know where I can find Nicole Newman?

Nick: Yeah, she was just in Victoria's room. I'll show you where she is.

Victor: Never in my life have I been so happy to receive a summons.

Nick: Where's Mom?

J.T.: I don't know. Is that the summons?

Nick: Yeah. She's gotta be here to get this.

J.T.: I-I saw her in the cafeteria. I'll take you there. Excuse me, I'm gonna be gone for a few minutes. Call me if there's any change.

Nick: You are such a troublemaker. If you don't wake up soon, Mom and Dad-- they could kill each other. And I'm not kidding.

J.T.: I don't know where she is. He might know something. David? David, have you seen Nikki?

David: Well, hey, J.T. uh, has there been any change?

J.T.: No, not with Victoria, but the legal process is moving forward, and this gentleman needs to find Nikki.

David: If she's not upstairs with Victoria, I don't know where she is. I'll--I'll try to call her. You have her cell number, right?

Man: I was assured she would be here at the hospital.

David: Well, she was here. I was talking to her not long ago. You know, you might wanna try her old residence. You know, the ranch at Highway "B." Also, the Athletic Club. No answer.

Gloria: Ah.

Kevin: I gotta hand it to you, Mom. The anonymous e-mail route? A somewhat ingenious way of getting back at Jack.

Gloria: Mm-hmm. And so much fun. And I think "Maddienmadison" and "Gecewi2007" will have a lot more to say in the future. It's just keeping with all the passwords.

Kevin: Mm. Yeah. You did remember that all of your e-mails can be traced back to you through the IP address, right?

Gloria: Honey, why didn't you remind me of that sooner? But wait a minute, what the heck? It doesn't matter. They're not gonna pick out my e-mails because they're gonna be getting hundreds of them. But I do understand why you like using a stolen laptop.

Molly: Knock, knock. I forgot to knock.

(Knock on door)

Kevin: Who is it?

Molly: I didn't hear a word of what you were saying. Nothing about stolen laptops or whatever--

Gloria: Stolen? Stolen? Molly, I said Nolan. I had to use his laptop because mine's in the shop.

Molly: Right. Um, so they need this room in 15 minutes for a meeting.

Kevin: Okay. We're just about to clear out.

Molly: Here are those numbers you wanted.

Kevin: Ah, thanks. Thanks.

Gloria: Thank you. Ten bucks says she thinks I'm certifiable.

Kevin: 20 bucks says you actually are. Who the hell is Nolan?

Gloria: Jill hired a new assistant.

Kevin: Ah, right. Whoa, look at these numbers.

Gloria: Incense based on Jabot's fragrances? Whose project is this?

Kevin: It was Ji Min's. The last one he approved.

Gloria: Really? It beat projected sales figures by 20%.

Kevin: Nice.

Gloria: Wow. You know, Ji Min was a good businessman. Too bad he got hooked up with Jack Abbott.

Kevin: Yeah.

Gloria: You know, this editorial is the best worst thing to happen to Jack. Doesn't matter what he does, the information's out there. And he's not gonna be able to talk his way out of this one.

Jack: Sorry.

Sharon: Okay.

Jack: Yeah, as far as the murder investigation, that is ridiculous. We--we would laugh if it weren't so damn sad. Wait, don't say those words, or anything like that. Just--that is our general attitude, though. Yeah, we're hopeful that they will find the person responsible for this and bring them to justice and that Ji Min's family will get their much-deserved closure. Okay, e-mail or fax me at the office, though. And follow up with me in case I get involved in something else. Thanks.

Sharon: Thank you for not naming names.

Jack: For not saying that Victor Newman is responsible for all this?

Sharon: Jack, I really don't think... I mean, I don't see how he could be.

Jack: Sweetheart, I love you, but when we're talking about Mr. Newman, he could be responsible for just about anything.

Sharon: Well, tell me how you really feel.

Jack: Honey, I don't mean to be disrespectful. I've known this man a lot longer than you have. I know he's all warm and fuzzy when he's playing with your child, or frolicking with his dog. I know the other side of Victor Newman. He is a bully of the worst kind. He has a volatile temper, and he is perfectly capable of killing a man, in anger or anything else. And I think he's responsible for Ji Min's death.

Michael: Yes, yes, we need to fast-track it. Okay. Call me later. All right, so my office is gonna file a response to Judge Krivet within the hour, within the half-hour.

Victor: You're saying that all so calmly. Is that required to move forward?

Michael: It's a courtesy RSVP that lets the court know that we're eager to comply. Which is correct.

Man: Mr. Newman?

Victor: Yes?

Man: Has your wife contacted you since we spoke?

Victor: No, she has not.

Man: You have my cell? Call if she returns.

J.T.: Will do. We've looked everywhere for Nikki. We checked the garage and her car is gone.

Victor: What is going on, for heaven's sakes! She has been here since Victoria was admitted to the hospital. Where the hell is she now?

Michael: Victor, we can't be certain that she's trying not to--

Victor: What, that she is hiding? What are you talking about? Hello? You call the judge right now. Tell him to forget about protocol. I'm not gonna wait for my wife. Do you understand that? We need to make a decision right now. Obviously Nikki is in no position to help us. This is outrageous! Being served a summons and she isn't here!

Gloria: Well, Senator Abbott. Read any good editorials today?

Jack: Hello, Gloria.

Gloria: Wanted you to know I did my civic duty-- contacted the ethics committee.

Jack: Oh, did you have to look up "Ethics" in the dictionary?

Gloria: Oh, well, I couldn't very well ask you, since everyone knows you don't know the meaning of the word.

Jack: Have a nice day, Gloria.

Gloria: I doubt you'll be so smug when your constituents have their say.

Jack: Oh, then you haven't heard? The ethics committee installed crackpot filters in their computers. None of your e-mails are gonna get through.

Kevin: (Chuckles)

Gloria: We'll see. Sharon.

Sharon: Well, that was totally unnecessary.

Jack: Everything with that witch is unnecessary.

Nick: That was Dad. Mom's at Newman.

Phyllis: Wow, that's some business meeting.

Nick: She is avoiding the deputy.

Phyllis: And you don't agree with her tactics?

Nick: No, I don't.

Phyllis: Well, I mean, I understand why she's doing what she's doing, right? She's trying to give the baby more time, right? I mean, that's the goal-- that the baby survives. That's what both of you want.

Nick: Look, I agree with my mother that Victoria would want the baby to live. But I also want my sister to live. If that makes me selfish, then so be it.

Phyllis: No. It definitely doesn't. Listen, you guys are the dynamic duo. You're always laughing and joking and... making things hard on each other.

Nick: Yeah. She's a pain. But she's one I'm... happy to live with. I just wish I could read her mind.

Phyllis: You know, I'm gonna tell you a story, again. It's not like, um, a once upon a time story, it's a real story. It's about when our daughter made her grand debut, and she was feet first. Do you remember that? She started putting her foot down right out of the gate. And, um, remember... I told Jack to promise me that he had to save our little girl, even if he had to cut me open. I mean, I would've done anything to make sure that that baby lived. And it sounds to me, like you know Victoria feels that way. You know in your heart.

Nick: Look, you had a terrible decision to make, but at least you got to make it. I keep wondering if we're doing the same for Victoria. And for the record, if I was there with you, I never would've let you die. Not ever. You know... maybe bringing in a stranger to decide what happens with Victoria is best for everyone.

Victor: You assistant seems to be the only one to know how to get a hold of you.

Nikki: I'd prefer to keep it that way.

Victor: They set a date for the hearing.

Nikki: I haven't been informed of that.

Victor: Well, consider yourself informed right now,

Nikki: You don't get to summon me, Victor. That's not your job.

Victor: Victoria's condition is getting worse! She needs immediate medical treatment, you got that? There's a court date. Why the hell are you avoiding it?

Nikki: Stop yelling at me. I don't have to answer any of your questions.

Gloria: This is an absolutely perfect day!

(Cell phone ringing)

Gloria: Who is it?

Kevin: I don't recognize the number.

Gloria: Well, don't answer it, Kevin. I feel too good. I don't wanna spoil it.

Kevin: Mmm. It could be Hakeem with the web site problem. You know, they may have to-- let me just answer. This is Kevin. Oh.

Gloria: Who is it?

Kevin: Okay, well, great. Thank you for letting me know, Mr. Scheller.

Jack: Well, we can finally put this newspaper where it belongs.

Sharon: You're not worried about it anymore?

Jack: Well, I'm concerned, but I realize one editorial is not gonna make that big a difference. That newspaper's gonna line somebody's birdcage tomorrow. The homicide investigation is stalled. It's not gonna be big news anytime soon. I mean, it's not as bad as we thought it was gonna be, but I'm doing damage control.

Sharon: What about the e-mails?

Jack: A reaction to the aforementioned birdcage material. An isolated incident.

Sharon: So you think things are looking up then?

Jack: Yeah. Yeah, I do.

(Cell phone ringing)

Jack: Oh, sorry. Hey, Ben, what's going on? Yeah. Stay in touch with me.

Sharon: I spoke too soon?

Jack: The ethics committee has scheduled a hearing to determine my fitness to retain office.

Michael: This is a horrible, horrible situation. I can't begin to understand how you feel. I wish there were another way to resolve the matter, but going to court seems to be the only solution. Nikki? Avoiding the summons is not in your best interest. And it doesn't help your daughter.

Nikki: Look, Brad and I were here--

Victor: What do you mean? What does Brad Carlton have to do with any of this?

Nikki: We were consulting with attorneys.

Victor: You brought Brad Carlton into the decision about our daughter? Are you out of your mind or what?

Brad: You told him?

Nikki: I'm trying to explain it to him. He doesn't wanna listen.

Victor: Explain what to me?

Brad: Victor, I feel I'm best qualified to determine Victoria's health.

Victor: This is absurd.

Brad: Well, you make think it's absurd, but I think the court may determine that your judgment is clouded. You'll be served with papers within the hour, but I wanted to give you notice.

Victor: What are you doing?

Brad: We are intervening in the hearing. And I'm petitioning the court to be appointed as guardian for the fetus.

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

Lily: I was about to pass out.

Colleen: Why, is Cane making you faint?

Lily: In a bad way.

Heather: The district attorney's office is going to retry your case.

Phyllis: Great.

Kevin: Well, you missed all the excitement here.

Jill: You mean Jack being dragged before the senate committee?
