Phyllis: We're almost there. As soon as we put this issue to bed, it's yours.

Chloe: Tell Ziff that I am still waiting on those Asian supermodel photos--ASAP.

Phyllis: Yeah, yeah, I know. I say that all the time. But I really mean it this time.

Chloe: And find out if that fax is coming in from Milan. Well, what are you standing there for? Go. Move.

Phyllis: You're the best printer in the business, the best. I know it.

Chloe: (Sighs heavily)

Phyllis: Thank you very much. Where is Mercedes' piece on L.A. Fashion Week? That's what I need right now on my desk.

Chloe: Uh, Rachel is still editing it. It's on its way.

Phyllis: Okay, well, she has ten minutes to finish, because we're going to press.

Chloe: I know. I know.

Phyllis: Aah! Doughnuts! Doughnuts! Doughnuts!

Jack: I thought your staff could use a little sugar rush.

Phyllis: Ooh, that's nice. Thank you.

Jack: Consider it a bribe.

Phyllis: Oh. Why?

Jack: We have to change the Jabot ad just a little bit.

Phyllis: Jack, it's so close to deadline. Are you kidding me?

Jack: Phyllis, it's a small fix. We're gonna add a little heart and the words "Be an organ donor" for Colleen's memory.

Chloe: We're not officially closed yet.

Phyllis: It's fine. We'll do it.

Jack: Yay!

Chloe: Great. Jelly?

Phyllis: Yeah, jelly.

Chloe: Oh, wait, did you get that quote from Biz Stone on the social networking article? 'Cause we're hoping to insert it.

Phyllis: Um, Nick is doing that for me.

Chloe: Mmm. Mm-hmm.

Jack: Mm-hmm.

Chloe: Mmm!

Billy: Hey, there's mommy.

Chloe: Mm.

Jack: Oh, ho.

Chloe: Hi. You have fun with daddy?

Billy: Yes, she did.

Jack: How's my little niece doing?

Billy: Oh, well, we have a new game. She takes her toy, throws it on the floor, and I pick it up and give it to her. And then she throws it on the floor again.

Jack: Brilliant.

Billy: Uh-huh.

Chloe: Hmm, I wonder where she learned to do that.

Billy: (Chuckles sarcastically) Ooh, ooh, thank you.

(Imitates car zooming)

Phyllis: All right. So, um, why does the C.E.O. make deliveries on his own? Don't do you have minions pick up the phone, call a messenger?

Jack: I wanted to see the old place, and I-I wanted to know how you're doing.

Phyllis: Mm, I'm doing really great. Summer started preschool. She's getting better every day.

Jack: That's the best news I've heard all day.

Phyllis: Chloe? Chloe? I need--I need that, uh, that cover sheet.

Chloe: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'm on it. I'm on it.

Phyllis: All right. How are you doing?

Jack: Me? Well, between Traci and Ashley, I'm not finding much time for myself.

Phyllis: Listen, you gotta take care of yourself. If you don't, who will?

Jack: If I take time off, who's gonna put out all of the fires?

Billy: So I didn't know if I should bring Delia to see you, or if you were just gonna show up like you usually do.

Chloe: (Sighs) Billy, get over yourself. How many times do I have to tell you that I did not follow you to the cabin? So what do I need to do to prove it to you?

Billy: I don't know. You could sign the divorce papers.

Chloe: (Sighs)

Michael: Oh, well, what day am I due in court? Yeah, tha--that should be fine. Thank you, Chantal. Hey, hey.

Victoria: I am so happy to see you.

Michael: Yeah, your assistant said this was urgent.

Victoria: There's an investigator here from the S.E.C. asking-- asking questions about Dad's health.

Michael: Uh, why?

Victoria: They have a report that says that I misrepresented Dad's recovery to the Savaneur stockholders. Here's a transcript of the meeting. I just want you to take a look at that.

Michael: And what did you say to the investigator?

Victoria: Nothing. I said I refused to answer any questions without my lawyer present.

Michael: Oh, I wish all my clients were like you.

Victoria: (Sighs) Am I in trouble?

Michael: Don't know yet. Um, but it looks like somebody's trying to make trouble for you.

Victoria: (Sighs heavily)

Sharon: Yeah. Nick turned his father in for commercial bribery.

Adam: Wow, that-- the favorite son. No, I'm--I knew Dad had been convicted, but I didn't know the details. Nick turned his own father into the feds.

Sharon: Yeah, it really tore the family apart. I mean, Victoria went to Europe. Victor and Nick were hardly speaking.

Adam: How-- how did they reconcile?

Sharon: It just took time and a lot of effort. But as many times as they've been on the outs, they've always managed to work it out.

Adam: Yeah, Dad does have a tendency to bulldoze over people.

Sharon: Well, he can be overpowering. But he also has a great capacity to forgive the people he loves.

Adam: I don't think he'll be very forgiving with me.

Sharon: You're his son. And you don't have any children, so maybe you don't understand, but never underestimate a father's love.

Nick: Okay.

Ashley: She seemed to really like it when you held her last time. Here you go.

Nick: Yeah? Oh, hey, there.

Ashley: You got her? Good job.

Nick: Hey, there. Remember me?

Ashley: Faith has a very good memory, don't you, Sweetheart?

Nick: Faith...

Ashley: Yeah.

Nick: It's a beautiful name. It's what we were gonna name our little girl, too.

Ashley: I didn't know. I'm so sorry.

Nick: Oh, don't apologize. It--it's perfect for her. She's perfect. It's what we all need right now.

Ashley: Well, I'm glad we ran into you.

Nick: Me, too.

Ashley: Um, we should probably go and see her daddy.

Nick: Yeah. Bye, little one.

Victor: (Exhales) Oh, it feels so good to be out of that bed. Whoa.

Nikki: You've had quite the day today.

Victor: (Sighs)

Victor: I meant what I said before. I want you with me by my side.

Nikki: I heard the words. But after everything we've been through, I just never imagined it--

Victor: Don't. Please don't think about the past. Just think about the future.

Ashley: Look who's here.

Victor: Oh, my goodness. What a surprise.

Ashley: Hello.

Victor: Come in. Come in.

Nikki: Well, I'll give you two a minute.

Victor: No, that's all right. You don't have to leave.

Nikki: I won't be long.

Victor: Okay.

Ashley: Bye.

Nikki: Bye.

Victor: My goodness. Look at that.

Ashley: Yeah, you look wonderful.

Victor: I think I've turned the corner.

Ashley: Really?

Victor: Yeah.

Ashley: I heard you were having a rough day.

Victor: Well, I was jogging before you came in, and you missed it.

Ashley: (Laughs) I guess we did. Want to hold your daughter?

Victor: Goodness. Oh.

Ashley: Hi, Sweetheart. Aw.

Victor: Oh, my.

Faith: (Grunts)

Victor: Oh, you're getting so big.

Ashley: (Chuckles) Yes, we've gained a pound...

Victor: You're getting so big.

Ashley: Thank you very much.

Victor: Oh, my goodness. Yes.

Faith: (Fusses)

Victor: Do you have everything you need wherever you are?

Ashley: Um, actually, we went back home to the ranch, and, yes, the staff has been very accommodating.

Victor: That's so nice. Look at you.

Ashley: (Laughs)

Victor: Look at you. Yes. You and the girls can stay as long as you like at the ranch, okay? Before you move out.

Faith: (Fusses)

Victor: Oh, yes.

Ashley: We're not going anywhere, actually.

Victor: Yes. You changed your mind about the divorce?

Ashley: No. I'm not the one who's leaving. (Sighs) I was gonna talk to you about this later, but I want the ranch as part of the settlement.

Traci: Mm.

Jack: Hey. Hiya, Sis.

Traci: Hi--mwah!--Jackie.

Jack: Well, we got the organ donor tag in the new ad--just in time.

Traci: Oh, thank you.

Jack: Thank you. It was a good idea.

Traci: Uh, I went to the cemetery today.

Jack: Have you talked to Steve yet?

Traci: No. I-it's his first day back at work, and I know he's overwhelmed. I didn't want to bother him.

Jack: You can always bother me, you know.

Traci: Um, it's the first night that I slept alone since... nights are the hardest.

Jack: Hey, hey. Is there anything I can do to help?

Traci: I don't know if there's anything anyone can do. I just have to take it day by day.

Jack: Maybe it's a good idea for you to get back to work. You know, we could set you up in the study.

Traci: (Sighs) I think it's time for me to go. E-everywhere I turn, there are reminders of Colleen. I think maybe I just need some time and some distance-- you know, get back to my life, my--my normal routine.

Jack: Well, on the most selfish level, I never want you to leave. But you know what? Getting back to a familiar routine is probably the best way to heal.

Traci: (Sighs) I don't think I'll ever heal. (Sniffles) It's just too much. (Sniffles) but I do know that it's time for me to go.

Victoria: (Clears throat)

Michael: Hello. My name is Michael Baldwin. I'm Ms. Newman's attorney. Uh, what is this all about?

Arnold: We received a call accusing Victoria Newman of purposely misleading the Savaneur stockholders.

Victoria: (Scoffs)

Michael: Uh, misleading them about what?

Arnold: Their C.E.O.'s physical condition.

Michael: Well, Ms. Newman said that her father is recovering well from successful surgery. We stand by that statement.

Arnold: Well, then, release Mr. Newman's medical records to verify.

Michael: (Chuckles) Well--well, let's start from the beginning. Who is this informant? Uh, let us address her accuser.

Arnold: You know we can't do that.

Michael: Mm. Well, then I can't help you. Mr. Newman's medical files are private, and you know that, so this meeting is over. Good afternoon.

Chloe: No, no, no. No, you don't understand. You can't move it now. We're down to the line. I--

Billy: Hey. Yo. Come on.

Chloe: (Sighs) Okay, fine. Just make it work. Yes, I love you, too. Bye.

Billy: (Clears throat)

Chloe: (Sighs)

Billy: Do you need a pen?

Chloe: Can you not see that I am insanely busy right now? Phyllis has been completely focused on Summer. I am picking up the slack. I will-- I'll get you the divorce papers as soon as I get the chance, all right?

Billy: (Chuckles) Well, from what I've seen, I don't think you'll be getting the "Chance" anytime soon.

Chloe: Oh, you are quite the punster.

Billy: Look, just come on. Admit it. Me finding out that Chance was still a virgin kind of blew your "Make Billy jealous" thing out of the water, didn't it?

Chloe: The world doesn't revolve around you, Billy.

Billy: You and my nephew-- fat chance.


Chloe: Really? Is it that hard to actually believe that I could be interested in another guy? You're the one with the problem, not me.

Billy: Mm-hmm.


Sharon: Nick, its Sharon. I need to speak with you about Noah. I'm at Colleen's house. Give me a call.

Phyllis: Oh, baby, baby, baby.

Nick: Hey.

Phyllis: How is your dad?

Nick: He's, uh, out of bed...

Phyllis: Doughnuts.

Nick: And bossing everyone around, as usual.

Phyllis: Oh.

Nick: Doughnuts.

Phyllis: Do you have my quotes? Yeah. Yeah.

Nick: (Groans) I forgot.

Phyllis: Yeah, you forgot.

Nick: I'll do it right now.

Phyllis: Okay, uh, this issue has to go to print within the hour, or else we can't get this proof back on schedule.

Nick: I know. It's my bad.

Phyllis: All right?

Nick: I'm sorry. I'll take care of it.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

(Cell phone rings)

Nick: Hey, Vick, what's up? Can I call you right back? The S.E.C.? (Sighs) I knew it! All right, um, uh, I-I'm-- I'll be there in a few. Okay, bye.

Phyllis: Trouble?

Nick: The S.E.C. is breathing down our backs. I gotta go.

Phyllis: My quotes?

Nick: I'm gonna call you from the car and text them to you.

Phyllis: It's fine. I'm a journalist. I'll just lie. I'll make 'em up.

Nick: Really?

Phyllis: Yeah, I mean, that's what we do, right? You had to ask?

Nick: Mm. Funny.

Phyllis: (Chuckles)

Victor: (Sighs)

Victor: I mean, don't you think it's premature to discuss the details of the divorce?

Ashley: Absolutely. But I guess its better you hear it from me than your attorney, right?

Victor: Why would you want to manage such a big property as the ranch all by yourself?

Ashley: You know, the ranch is so beautiful. I'd love for the girls to be raised there, just like Victoria and Nicholas were.

Victor: You know that I will always take care of Abby and Faith.

Ashley: We don't have to talk about this now. We can discuss it later. I'm only here so you can see your daughter.

Victor: So you just waltz in here and drop this on me?

Ashley: (Sighs) That was never my intention, Victor. I don't want to upset you. But I do have to be going. I have a meeting with the minister about Faith's christening.

Victor: All right.

Ashley: By the way, we're trying to have it in the next two weeks. I hope you'll be up to it.

Victor: I'm sure I will be.

Ashley: Good. Well, then, have a great rest of your day. Bye. Thank you.

Nikki: Mm-hmm.

Ashley: Bye, Nikki.

Nikki: Bye-bye. Uh-oh.

Victor: "Uh-oh," what?

Nikki: I know that look. Did she upset you?

Victor: (Sighs) I'd assumed that she was, uh, staying at Jack Abbott's place, but, um, she's been staying at the ranch. Did you know that?

Nikki: No. Well, don't worry. I'm sure she'll clear out as soon as you go home.

Victor: (Chuckles) She says she wants to stay at the ranch with Abby and Faith, so I'm the one that will be vacating the premises.

Nikki: What?! That's ridiculous.

Victor: That doesn't sit well with you, does it?

Nikki: (Sighs) You know what? It doesn't really matter what I think. I'm sure there'll be plenty of time for the lawyers to work it all out. In the meantime, I don't want you to worry about any of this, okay?

Victor: (Sighs)

Nick: You know, I was afraid this was gonna happen the second you put a positive spin on Dad's medical condition.

Victoria: So I said he had some minor complications.

Michael: Hmm. Renal insufficiency and arrhythmia are hardly "Minor" complications, not to mention everything else that's gone wrong.

Victoria: Look, Dad has good days and bad, just like anyone recovering from major surgery. Michael, just make this go away.

Michael: All right, you know what? The good news is, your father's on the mend, and he could be out of the hospital soon, and this could all be moot.

Victoria: Who would do this?

Nick: Disgruntled stockholder?

Victoria: Or maybe someone out to get me?

Nick: Maybe one of Dad's enemies.

Victoria: Well, that narrows down the playing field, doesn't it?

Michael: Could be someone from the hospital.

Victoria: No, Nick and I talked to the hospital administrator, and Dad's staff was handpicked.

Nick: Yeah, after all the stories you hear lately about personnel leaking medical records, we're taking no chances.

Victoria: Memorial doesn't want a whiff of a lawsuit, trust me.

Michael: Well, maybe the SEC is looking for a reason to make this all blow up, given your father's history. They're being very vigilant, especially after the whole Bernie Madoff debacle.

Victoria: So what do we do?

Michael: You wait and see. You call me if they step foot in this building again, and no more public statements unless you run it by me again, all right? (Sighs)

Chloe: Thank you. W-we don't have to have a quote from Biz Stone. It'll be fine.

Phyllis: Well, it would be nice to have a quote from Biz Stone.

Chloe: I know, but--

Billy: Well, I know somebody who works in his office. I can call them and see if they could help.

Phyllis: Oh, okay, go ahead. Give it a try. Oh. (Exhales slowly) You know what? There's just so much pressure. I used to love it, but now it's just work and effort, like a huge weight on my shoulders.

Chloe: Yeah, but everything's gonna be okay. Once we've signed off on this issue, you'll be raring to go next week.

Phyllis: Yeah, but it was me and Nick doing it together. And now that he's left, it's like, mm, it's not the same. I kind of don't even want to do it anymore.

Sharon: You know what? Let me talk to Jack before you start painting your walls. That's all I need. (Chuckles) Okay, Honey. Bye. Can you see that?

Adam: Uh, yeah, a little. Um, I have no peripheral vision, but, uh, it's kind of like looking through a blurry doughnut hole. Uh, I will, um, eventually go blind one day, completely. But, uh, it could stay like this for years.

Sharon: Um, well, my daughter drew that. She was killed in a car accident.

Adam: I know. I heard. I'm so sorry. Um, I don't even... (Sighs) Want to imagine what it must be like to lose two daughters.

Sharon: Three, actually. Um, Nick and I had a-- another little girl years ago. She only lived for one day. I think it was more difficult losing this baby, because it was so close to the anniversary of her death.

Adam: I didn't know.

Sharon: Well, how could you?

Adam: (Sighs)

Victor: Michael, I need to see you as soon as possible.

(Doorbell rings)

Ashley: Hi.

Nikki: How could you do this?

Ashley: Nikki, could you please keep it down? The baby's asleep.

Nikki: Oh. Oh. You want me to be considerate of you after what you just told Victor? It's unbelievable. It's not enough that you're divorcing him? And now you want to take his house away from him? And he is still recovering in a hospital bed. What are you trying to do, Ashley? Kill him and save yourself the trouble of a divorce?

Ashley: (Chuckles) No. (Normal voice) So if you were me, you would just-- you would just give him a free pass? Ignore the consequences of what he set into motion? I mean, never mind that Summer was seriously injured, I was practically driven insane, and Colleen lost her life.

Nikki: So you're doing this to punish him.

Ashley: No, I'm not, Nikki. I'm not. He's the father of my children. A part of me will always care for him.

Nikki: You have a very strange way of showing it.

Ashley: (Sighs) Oh, well. You know, I didn't ask for your opinion, did I?

Nikki: Why would you even for a moment think that this ranch belongs to you?

Ashley: You did.

Nikki: I did not.

Ashley: Yes, you did.

Nikki: Victor continued to own this property even after our divorce. He always has.

Ashley: But you lived here. And you raised your kids here, right? I mean, I expect nothing less for my children than what Nicholas and Victoria received.

Nikki: Okay. Well, you just spend all your free time rationalizing that. The fact is, he's never gonna give you this ranch.

Ashley: I guess that's up to the judge.

Sharon: Hi. Come in.

Nick: Hey. Got your message after I left the hospital.

Sharon: Oh, well, you didn't have to come over.

Nick: That's all right. I was on my way home. What's with all the boxes?

Sharon: I'm moving in.

Nick: Here?

Sharon: Well, Jack's leasing it to me.

Nick: What's Noah say about that?

Sharon: That's what I wanted to talk to you about. So come in.

Nick: Okay.

Adam: Hey, Nick.

Nick: Adam.

Billy: Hi. I tried to call you earlier, see if you wanted to join me and the munchkin at the park.

Traci: I'm so sorry, Billy. Um, I would have. I--but I was at the cemetery. And I meant to call you.

Billy: Oh, no worries. No worries.

Jack: Have you heard Ashley finally came to her senses?

Billy: Oh, you mean about filing for divorce? Yeah, she called me.

Jack: Good news.

Billy: Yeah.

Traci: All right, you two, there is no good news when it has to do with divorce, especially when there are children concerned.

Billy: Yeah, that's true.

Jack: Yeah, but Ashley will have the full support of her entire family, particularly when she comes back to Jabot.

(Cell phone rings)

Traci: Oh. Oh, excuse me, you guys. I have to get this. Be right back.

Billy: (Sighs)

Jack: I really wish you'd reconsider your resignation.

Billy: (Sighs)

Jack: Come on. You, me, Ashley running Jabot again-- what do you say?

Billy: Jack, I-it just-- it was never a good fit for me. I'm moving on.

Jack: I know you think I have no value for your input. You're wrong. You grew in Hong Kong. You've grown since you returned.

Billy: It's nice to hear you acknowledge it. It is.

Jack: Listen to me. The three of us could take on Newman Cosmetics blindfolded. What do you say?

Billy: It's tempting. It is. But... (Sighs) No, man, I-I-I'm moving on.

Jack: To what? Working for the competition?

Billy: No. Actually, man, I-I-I want to go in a completely different direction, you know? A-and I found something that really interests me. And actually, I-I-I'd really like to steal you away for a minute and-- and talk to you about it.

Jack: Now's as good a time as any.

Billy: (Clears throat) Jack, uh, I need you to release some money from my trust.

Jack: From the trust fund? Billy, that's not gonna happen.

Billy: (Sighs)

Sharon: Adam dropped off Noah's schoolwork.

Nick: Oh, is Noah gonna move in with you?

Sharon: If that's okay with you.

Nick: It's more than okay. I would much prefer he live with you than at Dad's place.

Adam: I should get going. Um, I'll get out of your way.

Nick: Do you need a ride, Adam?

Adam: No, Nick, uh, my driver's around the corner. I'll call him.

Sharon: Thanks again for bringing Noah's things.

Adam: (Sighs) My pleasure. Uh, well, I appreciate you being so honest and--and open with me about your--your life.

Sharon: We all have things in our past that we wish we didn't.

Adam: Yeah, well, it's not like I have any friends in Genoa City I can talk to, so what you said about forgiveness, it helped.

Sharon: Any time.

Phyllis: Uh-huh. Yeah, fantastic. You're a lifesaver. Thank you. All right. What, um, what? Billy? I-is he dating anyone? Is that--I don't-- I don't know. You're--you'd have to ask him. Um, y-yeah, he's adorable. Oh, wow, look at that. There goes my other line. I-I'll talk to you later. Bye.

Chloe: (Sighs) Okay. All right. So, um...

Phyllis: Oh, where's "Poopy-pants"? Where'd she go?

Chloe: Oh, my mom just picked her up. Uh, the tag is at the bottom of the Jabot ad.

Phyllis: Mm. Good. Billy's connection came through. Thank him for me.

Chloe: Well, he's nothing if not well connected.

Phyllis: Mm.

Chloe: (Sighs)

Phyllis: Uh, what's going on with you two?

Chloe: Nothing. Nothing. Actually, we've moved on.

Phyllis: Oh, yeah. I can see that.

Chloe: No, really. We both have. I'm actually dating someone, and he's dating someone. It's fine.

Phyllis: Let me tell you something-- when you share a kid together, you never really move on. I know.

Chloe: (Sighs)

Billy: I can't believe you said no without even hearing why I want the money.

Jack: It wasn't an arbitrary answer.

Billy: Is this a power trip? Are you trying to get me to go back to Jabot?

Jack: No, of course not.

Billy: Jack, you realize that this is my inheritance.

Jack: And it is my responsibility to protect it. You haven't exactly been a model of responsibility and maturity, Billy. If you get access to that kind of money--

Billy: (Sighs)

Jack: Billy, this is your future. This is Delia's future. I am not gonna let you squander it away and have nothing to show for it in the end.

Billy: You have little faith in me, don't you?

Jack: I would like nothing better than for you to prove me wrong.

Billy: Well, Jack, I came to you first. That was a mistake. Sorry I did that. But I'll find another way, okay? No worries. Thanks for nothing, Jack.

Jack: (Sighs)

Victoria: (Whispering) "S.E.C. regulations"...

(Knock on door)

Adam: Victoria?

Victoria: (Normal voice) Yeah, I'm right here.

Adam: I, uh, dropped off Noah's stuff to Sharon's.

Victoria: Well, thanks. Thank you.

Adam: Everything all right?

Victoria: Yeah. Why?

Adam: I heard a couple employees whispering in the, uh, the elevator.

Victoria: What, about me?

Adam: About the S.E.C.

Victoria: (Sighs) Well, that got around fast.

Adam: So what did the lofty U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission want?

Victoria: Hmm? Oh, they're just poking around. It's no big deal.

Adam: You know, a buddy of mine had them swoop down on a company he was working for. You don't want to mess around with these guys.

Victoria: (Sighs) Someone claims that I misrepresented Dad's recovery to the Savaneur shareholders.

[Adam remembering]

Adam: Is this the enforcement division of the securities and exchange commission? I'd like to report an infraction. The name of the company is Savaneur. The chief executives, they lied to their shareholders today regarding the exact nature of their C.E.O.'s health.

Adam: Who do you think would do something like that?

Victoria: I have no idea.

Adam: Are you worried?

Victoria: Why would I be? I didn't do anything wrong.

(Clears throat)

Michael: I'll put in a call to the regional director of the Chicago office.

Victor: The chief of staff in D.C. is a friend of mine.

Michael: Well, let's not pull out our big guns until we have to. Do you have any idea who might have informed the S.E.C.?

Victor: (Sighs) Hmm. When you have a career as long as mine, you make enemies.

Michael: Well, in the meantime, the hospital administrator is looking into it from his end, seeing if any unauthorized person has been checking out your chart.

Victor: How do we make it go away?

Michael: Well, the sooner you're out of the hospital and appearing in public, the better.

Victor: I would love nothing more than to get the hell out of here. Now there's something else. Ashley and I are divorcing.

Michael: I'm sorry to hear that.

Victor: Yeah, so am I, but I guess it was inevitable. She's made certain demands. I want you to handle it, all right?

Nikki: If you cared about Victor the way you say you do, it wouldn't even occur to you to try to take his home away. What a hypocrite you are. How can you do this?

Ashley: Well, he's not dealing with this all by himself. He has you. He's always had you. I heard him say so.

Nikki: What? When was this?

Ashley: (Sighs) Right after I had the baby. When I was feeling up to it, I went to go see him, and you were in his room. I opened the door just in time to hear him professing his undying devotion to you, his ex-wife. I know. Can you imagine that? I had just had the man's child. And there he is, professing his love for you. It's not like it wasn't already over between Victor and me for a million different reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with you. But you have to admit, it would be funny if it wasn't so damn sad. I mean, every time one of you is on their deathbed, pretending or not, there it is. It's time again-- Victor and Nikki. Victor and Nikki-- together again. The only problem is, the two of you are never really apart. And that's when I decided I am so over it. I am done with both of you. So get out of my house, Nikki, now.

Adam: May I help?

Victoria: Yeah, sure. Uh, grab a file.

Adam: No, I meant with the Securities and Exchange Commission. A classmate of mine from Harvard works at the S.E.C. maybe I can, uh, make a call, see if there's anything to find out off the record.

Victoria: Yeah, that would be, um, that would be great if you could do that. Thank you.

Adam: Not a problem. It's the least I can do.

Nick: So where is "Boy wonder"?

Sharon: Oh, he's running some errands. I needed some things at the hardware store. And plus, he was out of shampoo, I think the one Eden likes.

Nick: That smelly stuff?

Sharon: Well, you're one to talk. Remember you used to wear that one--that aftershave?

Nick: I thought you always liked that.

Sharon: Did I? (Laughs)

Nick: Maybe not. (Sighs) (Rubs hands together) You know, I'm real glad that you're trying to move on. I've been worried about you.

Sharon: Well, don't be, okay? The month in the psychiatric institute did me a world of good. I'm much stronger now, even with losing the baby.

Nick: Okay. Well, you know, if you ever need anything...

Sharon: What I need is to just keep standing on my own two feet, and I appreciate your concern. I really do. But what I don't appreciate is you acting like I need you in my life, like I-I can't manage without you.

Nick: I never said that, Sharon.

Sharon: Well, that's just how it feels. You know how you can help me? Just stop helping me.

Chloe: (Sighs)

Phyllis: One, two, three. Thank you, God.

Chloe: We did it.

Phyllis: (Sighs)

Chloe: We made our dead--

Phyllis: All right. All right. Unh, unh, unh, unh. I don't want to hear the word ever again.

Chloe: Okay. Let's go get a cocktail. Come on. We gotta celebrate.

Phyllis: (Exhales slowly)

Chloe: You deserve it. Let's go.

Phyllis: A cocktail.

Chloe: Yeah.

Phyllis: Um, I have to pick up my daughter from preschool.

Chloe: (Sighs)

Phyllis: But, um, we can take a rain check, and in fact, even better, I owe you a spa day. How about that?

Chloe: Yeah? I'm gonna hold you to it. Oh, hi. If you came to ogle the models, we're closing up early.

Billy: I'm not here to ogle. Um, what you said before about not wanting to do this anymore, did you mean it?

Phyllis: Uh, did I say-- I don't--

Billy: I want to.

Phyllis: Um, y-you want a job here?

Billy: No, I want to publish "Restless Style." Why don't you sell it to me?

Pastor: A christening is a joyous event for the family.

Ashley: I know. I'm so looking forward to it.

Pastor: Um, let's look at the calendar. Have you chosen her Godparents yet?

Ashley: Yes, I have.

Jack: Another christening in the Abbott family.

Ashley: Hey. So how does two weeks from yesterday look?

Pastor: Hmm.

Traci: Oh, I'm so sorry. Um, I really need to get back to New York.

Ashley: Oh, of course you do. You have to get back to Steve. Um, so how soon can we do this?

Pastor: Um, we have an opening at the end of this week.

Ashley: Okay, let's do that.

Traci: Thank you.

Ashley: I want both of you to be here.

Adam: Sorry. Sorry I'm late.

Ashley: That's okay, Adam. I had to move the christening up to the end of this week. Does that work for you?

Adam: Uh, sure. Anything for my Goddaughter.

Jack: Wait. You're Faith's Godfather?

Nikki: Oh, hi, Michael.

Michael: Hello. Mm.

Nikki: Please tell me you're not talking business.

Victor: I've asked Michael to handle a few things for me.

Nikki: Now, Victor, no business-- doctor's orders. Now if you're not here on a social visit, I'm kicking you out.

Victor: Hmm.

Michael: I think this one means business.

Nikki: Yeah, don't try me. I can take you.

Michael: I know you can.

Victor: All right, you two. I've asked Michael to handle the situation with Ashley. I don't want to oppose her. And if she wants the ranch, she can have it.

Nikki: No. Victor, you shouldn't have to give up your home.

Victor: Sweetheart, when I was in Paris, I realized what's important in life. The ranch is a piece of property. Ashley wants it. Bless her soul. Maybe it's a good thing. There's so many memories attached to that place. We've all been through so much. (Sighs) It's a good idea maybe to start--start fresh somewhere.

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

Michael: Ryder lied to you.

Lauren: You don't owe this guy a thing.

Kevin: Can you at least reserve judgment until you get to know him a little bit?

Nick: Why would we want to sell to someone who has pretty much shirked all responsibility his entire life?

Deacon: She does not own me.

Ryder: Want to bet?
