Michael: Oh, fine. It's okay. Lauren had to speak with Amber, anyway. What's up?
Phyllis: Oh, okay, um, I'm about to sign a contract with Newman Enterprises.
Michael: All right, you know, uh, since I do work for the man, for me to go over it, that would be a conflict of--what?
Phyllis: No, no, no, no, no. It's not that. Its not-- it's not about the contract.
Phyllis: The contract's fine. The contract's fine. It's just, do I want to do this? Do I really want to do this? I-it's so crazy. I'm having second thoughts, and I'm the one who thought of it in the first place.
Michael: You're thinking about what happened to Summer because of Victor.
Phyllis: Yeah, of course, because of Victor. It's gonna take her months, if not years, to recover from this, and I'm about to work for the man who did this to my daughter?
Michael: What did Nick say?
Phyllis: Oh, Nick understands, but I can't really talk freely with him, you know?
Michael: Why not? He's your husband. Why?
Phyllis: He and his father have this weird father/son love/hate thing. You know this. It's a minefield. I have to watch my step all the time. And if Victor wasn't at death's door in the last--
Michael: I got it.
Phyllis: I-I mean...
Michael: Got it.
Phyllis: When I look at the man, he makes my blood boil. I just can't get past this. I canít. I wanted to move out of the ranch. But then I heard that Victor was moving, so I'm staying, and I-I don't know. I--you work for him. Please help me. Please. How can I--how can I do this? How do you compartmentalize?
Michael: No, well, it's different. I'm not family.
Phyllis: Well, I don't want to start a feud. I don't want to do that, but I-I-I just can't get past this. How do I get past this?
Michael: Well, you know that Victor regrets what happened to Summer. You know that.
Phyllis: Yeah, I know he does, but he would never divulge that to me. He would never open up his heart to me.
Michael: Well, it's much more Victor to make amends in his own way.
Phyllis: All right. All right. I-I-- this is not helping me. A-am I supposed to just accept that? Is that what you're telling me?
Michael: All right, listen to me. Only you can answer that.
Amber: You know what I think would go great with the jackets? A line of boyfriend jeans. I mean, a-and I was thinking all about the ad campaign. We could have the girlfriend in the jeans and the boyfriend standing in the boxers.
Lauren: Yeah, but--
Amber: Remember how good Daniel looked on the cover of "Restless Style" when he was in the boxers?
Lauren: We could do that--
Amber: Oh, no, we don't have to stop there.
Lauren: That's why I wanted to talk to you.
Amber: No, that's the thing. We could do a boot line--
Lauren: Amber. Amber. Amber! You know how I love your stuff.
Amber: Yes. Yes. Uh-huh.
Lauren: Okay, but there is a problem, and I need to talk to you about it, okay?
Michael: Sorry, I have got to go back to the courthouse.
Michael: Yeah, yeah, there's some screw-up with the paperwork for Ryder's bond.
Amber: Oh, let him go back to jail.
Lauren: (Groans) Well, Kevin's trying to be a positive influence on him, and Michael's trying to support it.
Michael: Well, that'll allow us to keep an eye on Ryder, just in case your instincts are correct.
Lauren: Oh, I'm positive they are.
Jana: Oh, um, I'm sorry.
Ryder: I'm sorry. The bathroom was occupied. I-I-I didn't want to be late for work.
Kevin: Hey, you ready?
Kevin: Cool. Let's roll.
Jana: Um, uh, Kevin?
Kevin: Uh, yeah? Uh, I'll be right there. What's up, Babe?
Jana: Okay, I'm sorry. I've tried, but this arrangement is just not gonna work for me.
Victoria: I have every right to be angry. Someone is trying to trash my reputation, my career-- telling the S.E.C. that I lied to Savaneur stockholders, after everything that I have done to establish myself there.
Nick: I understand your frustration, but if you...
Victoria: (Sighs heavily)
Nick: Go in there with your guns blazing, Sis--
Victoria: No, I am not gonna do that. I am going to be very calm.
Nick: You didn't intentionally mislead anyone. You love your father very much. You wanted to believe that he was gonna pull through.
Victoria: I did believe that he was gonna pull through, and that's exactly what happened.
Nick: Okay, well, your attitude in there could make all the difference.
Victoria: Oh, forget my attitude, all right? I want to find this bastard who--who sabotaged me in the first place.
Adam: I'll have a name for you soon. I'm waiting for a call back from my buddy at the S.E.C.
Nick: You know, whoever did tip them off could have a grudge against the family.
Victoria: Or they're shorting Savaneur stock.
Nick: Either way, we can easily discredit them.
Victoria: Well, you discredit them. I'm gonna flay them alive. Let me know when you hear from your friend, will you?
Adam: You got it.
Nick: Is the investigator here?
Adam: Uh, yeah, he's here uh, with the stockholders in the conference room.
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.
Ashley: (Gasps) Victor.
Ashley: What are you doing here?
Victor: I just came to visit you and the baby.
Ashley: Okay, well, Faith is sleeping.
Victor: I'll just wait, and, uh, pick--pick up some of my things.
Ashley: Okay, um, I know you--you lived here a long time, but we did both agree that this is my home now, right?
Ashley: Okay, I think maybe we should set some ground rules.
Victor: Some "Ground rules"?
Ashley: Well, I think so. Yeah. If you're gonna come to my home, then you should probably call first. And when you get here, knock on the door. I mean, honestly, you can't just be wandering in and out anymore, right? It's common courtesy.
Victor: Last time I was here, you and I were married to each other. We were a family.
Victor: You mean I've suddenly been transformed into an intruder?
Ashley: No. You're the father of my children.
Victor: And I own this damn place. I come and go as I please.
Ashley: Well, that's just not acceptable.
Ashley: Yeah, really.
Victor: Then why don't you up and leave? How's that?
Ashley: So is that how it's gonna be? Every time I do something you don't like, you're gonna throw me out, and your children? The baby, too?
Victor: I will not be barred from my own place.
Ashley: You know, you--
Ashley: Wow. Um, I want you to see the girls, and I really want you to be a part of our lives, but when you are a part of our lives, you need to treat us with respect. Now is that too much to ask of you? After everything that's happened, you're really gonna tell me that's too much?
Victor: (Sighs) (Sighs) All right. Um, I didn't mean to upset you, all right?
Victor: I know you've been through a lot.
Ashley: Oh, boy. Please donít. Don't do that.
Victor: Don't do what?
Ashley: Don't make this out to be my problem, as if I'm being irrational, because I have been just fine ever since I had the baby.
Amber: Okay. I know you said that there was a problem with expanding my line, but, you know, I really think that we should capitalize on the momentum we have with the jackets, because they're so great and--
Lauren: Okay, well, that's the problem. That's where the problem lies. The jackets aren't selling.
Amber: Since when?
Lauren: Last few weeks.
Amber: I-I don't get it. You couldn't even keep 'em in the store. I mean, like, peop--
Lauren: I know. I know. I know. It's probably the economy. You know how much I love your designs. I-I'm sure things will pick up. In the meantime...
Amber: Yeah. Um, okay. I still have to find a way to pay my rent. You wouldn't have any openings in sales, would you?
Phyllis: Oh, no, no, no, no, Lauren, you don' t want too that. Trust me.
Lauren: Well, you-- you know how much I'd love you back at the Genoa City store, but I am fully staffed.
Phyllis: Fully staffed-- smart move.
Lauren: I really am.
Amber: You know, you would think that you would want to keep a roof over your son's head. He does not have a job right now, either.
Phyllis: Oh, yeah, he doesn't have a job right now because, um, hmm, hmm-- oh, he was trying to keep himself out of jail because of your boyfriend Deacon.
Amber: Okay, Deacon is not my boyfriend or my friend.
Phyllis: Oh, that's right. That's right. That's right. He's your fiancť.
Amber: You know what? I did that to keep your son out of jail. It was your son. To protect him.
Phyllis: Oh. Oh, wait a second--
Lauren: Wait, wait, wait. Oh, Phyllis, come on! Phyllis?
Phyllis: (Sighs) I'm fine.
Lauren: Take a breath.
Lauren: Okay. Okay. Actually, you know what? I do want to ask you a question. You know, when you were with Deacon, did you, uh, did you find anything out on Ryder?
Amber: I mean, not really. I know Deacon said that Ryder would do whatever he wanted him to.
Lauren: Do you think they're still working together?
Amber: (Sighs) Look, I know Kevin wants to think he's all reformed, but I'm never gonna trust him, so...
Jana: Look, even if I do put my doubts about Ryder aside, it is getting crowded in here.
Kevin: It's just for a little bit longer.
Kevin: He needs to save up some money so he can get his own place.
Kevin: You dropped something.
Jana: (Sighs) Oh. Well, look at that. He looks a bit like you at that age. "Ryder with... fall of '93."
Ryder: I just forgot my jacket. What are you doing with my stuff?
Adam: Michael, is that you?
Michael: (Sighs) Yeah.
Adam: I got the number of that person who ratted out Victoria to the S.E.C.
Adam: And I need you to help me find out who it was.
Michael: Did you try calling the number?
Adam: (Chuckles) Yes, and there's an automated message. I've tried the reverse lookup thing, and, uh, the number's unlisted, so you still have some friends on the force, right? Someone who could help us out?
Michael: I'm not going to help you get access to anybody's private anything.
Adam: Really? That's too bad. My dad is gonna be very disappointed to hear how uncooperative you were.
Michael: (Chuckles) Well, you're just gonna have to find other ways to score points with him. That's what all this is about, isn't it?
Nick: This was a bald-faced attempt to manipulate the Savaneur stock price by circulating unfounded rumors.
Arnold: Just how unfounded those rumors are has yet to be determined. I have a report that says Victor Newman suffered a serious life-threatening setback the morning of the stockholders' meeting. At the same time, Ms. Newman was reassuring you all that it was merely a minor setback, and that he remained C.E.O. of Newman Enterprises and Savaneur.
Victoria: At the time I made that statement, I had every confidence in my father's improvement and recovery. And it turned out that I was right. So, uh, my father's out of the hospital, and we expect him back to work any day.
Nick: I'm going to stipulate that I'm not going to discuss my father's personal medical history. Now that being said, does anyone at this stockholders' meeting or on this conference call have any questions? Very well. Then I believe we are finished here.
Deacon: I have something I'd like to say.
Arnold: And you are?
Deacon: I'm Deacon Sharpe. I'm a Savaneur stockholder. I've had some personal dealings with Ms. Newman, and I'd like to make a statement for the record.
Ryder: And I get you doesn't give you the right to go through my stuff.
Jana: Look, I didn't mean to.
Kevin: It just fell out.
Jana: It's a cute photograph. Who is that standing next to you?
Ryder: I don't know.
Jana: You don't know?
Ryder: The picture was torn when I got it. Look, why do you care so much, anyway?
Kevin: Easy. Easy. We're just curious, getting to know one another.
Ryder: (Sighs) I'm sorry. I'm just-- I'm not used to living with people, especially not people who don't have a hidden agenda. I'll adjust.
Kevin: We gotta go anyway.
Ryder: I'm sorry again.
Jana: It's all right.
Nick: Mr. Sharpe, I hope you're prepared to show some evidence of your holdings in Savaneur.
Deacon: Well, as a matter of fact, I brought the certificates in case there's any question.
Victoria: Uh, Mr. Sharpe is an art dealer. I've purchased some pieces from him for the Newman foundation. That has nothing to do with Savaneur, and we've certainly never discussed my father's health.
Deacon: That's true. I have no inside knowledge of these accusations.
Arnold: Then I'm not sure what your purpose is in coming forward.
Deacon: I guess I'm what you'd call a character witness. Victoria Newman is a straight shooter. Let me tell you something-- every deal that we've done, she's been the soul of integrity, beyond reproach. And any of my clients who worked with her would say the exact same thing. So if she says that her father was getting better, then that's exactly what happened. And I, for one, feel very confident that my investment is in such capable, incredible hands.
Victoria: Thank you, Mr. Sharpe. Um, I appreciate your confidence.
Deacon: Well, you've earned it.
Deacon: Hi. (Sighs)
Adam: You know, it is very strange to me that you would want to protect whoever made that call to the S.E.C.
Michael: I guess you could go with that approach when you talk to Victor. (Sighs) The only problem is, Victor trusts me implicitly and you not at all.
Adam: I am working to regain his trust.
Michael: I know, and that concerns me.
Nick: Adam, any word from your friend at the S.E.C.?
Adam: Uh, yeah, I was able to find the number that, uh, that made the call, but, uh, to link it to a name, there's been no luck so far.
Nick: It could only have been a few people. Hardly anyone knew of Dad's condition. What's the number?
Adam: Right here.
Nick: See, that's the same company prefix that most of the phones around here use. Go get the records from Connie.
Adam: You got it.
Michael: You know, whoever made that phone call could easily have borrowed someone else's phone.
Nick: And then just happened to volunteer to lead the search for the caller?
Michael: Then it's occurred to you that it might be Adam?
Nick: Well, of course it has, but I can't jump to that conclusion in front of Dad, and who knows? Maybe we're wrong. He does have his hands full right now.
Victor: I do see the difference. You seem more confident. But, Ashley, for you to claim that all the anxieties have left now after a few sessions with a therapist--
Ashley: It's not about the sessions, Victor. It's because I had the baby. I mean, everything that was going on, it was very stressful. I was constantly worried that it would hurt her, or that it would even kill her. I was just always feeling so guilty, constantly filled with guilt.
Victor: It must have been excruciating.
Ashley: It was actually unbearable. And then I would have those dreams. (Sighs) Sabrina was telling me that the baby was dead, and I would wake up in such a panic. But, okay, she's fine. She's here. (Laughs) (Claps hands) And she's fine. And so I can relax.
Victor: But, Sweetheart, you--you don't seem relaxed.
Ashley: Because you're here. You're in my face. You're confronting me.
Victor: I just came here to see you and the baby. I thought you'd be happy.
Ashley: I'm happy you gave me my girls. You gave me my Abby, and you gave me my Faith. Thank you. But the best way you can make me happy now is to just leave me alone.
Victor: Okay. I will do that.
Arnold: So this is not a formal investigation, and it may never get to that point.
Victoria: Since when are you a Savaneur stockholder?
Deacon: Since I found out that you were in trouble.
Victoria: Why would you want to help me?
Deacon: Well, why wouldn't I? Oh, oh, you mean because you blew that deal for me that would have netted me a fortune? Nah, come on. Vicki, I'm not the kind of guy that holds a grudge, especially not against a woman that I, um, respect. I was just kind of hoping that this little act of kindness might get me back in your good graces and that, um, you and I could be friends.
Victoria: We were never friends.
Deacon: No, I guess that wasn't really the right choice of words now, was it?
Phyllis: Oh, I'm sorry. I told them to leave it at the tack house.
Ashley: Oh, that's okay. No worries. Shh, shh, shh.
Phyllis: Mm. They forget. She's so sweet.
Ashley: (Whispering) She's sleeping.
Phyllis: I know. (Whispering) So adorable. She really looks like a Newman. How is it that our daughters look like our strong, strapping, masculine husbands? But still come out looking feminine and beautiful?
Phyllis: How is that-- (Chuckles)
Ashley: Thank gosh.
Phyllis: I know.
Ashley: Can you stay?
Phyllis: Are--are you sure? Because I know this time is sort of, mm...
Ashley: Oh, you know, sleep's overrated.
Phyllis: Oh, well, you make it look easy.
Phyllis: That was kind of stupid of me. It's not very easy for you, is it? You're going through a divorce.
Ashley: That's okay. I mean, Victor was just here.
Phyllis: Was it awful?
Ashley: Oh, was it awful? Yeah. You know, it's just like our relationship isn't how I thought it would be. The cost of being a Newman is just too--too high. I mean, I want the girls to be proud of their father. And obviously, I want them to have all the advantages that come with being a Newman, but I just don't want them anywhere near that dark side, not at all.
Phyllis: Oh. I don't think that's possible. I mean, take it from me. After watching what Nick has gone through and seeing what happened to Summer, if you want the good, the bad comes with it.
Victor: I told you I was thinking of making some drastic changes. I'm not taking this decision lightly. I'm very carefully weighing the concerns of the company and my family and my health.
Michael: Well, not necessarily in that order.
Victor: No. I'm mostly concerned with Ashley's well-being.
Michael: (Sighs) Ashley.
Victor: I just came from seeing her-- very difficult for her, very difficult for her to her recover, considering all the breakdowns and nightmares and anxieties and pregnancies.
Michael: Victor, you're not holding yourself responsible, are you?
Victor: (Sighs) It's not a question of affixing blame. I just want to make sure that she's all right, because if she's all right, then the children will be, and I'll do whatever is necessary to make that happen.
Michael: When you say "Whatever's necessary"--
Victor: (Sighs) I'm gonna leave Genoa City for a while.
Jana: Oh, but you went shopping without me there, I see.
Amber: Well, this is for you... well, for you to help me.
Jana: Oh, now I'm even more curious. (Gasps)
Amber: I don't want anything else to catch me by surprise.
Jana: Me, either. Oh, God, I don't know why I torched the old one. Hand it over. Oh, my God. Do I have some questions for you, my old friend. (Chuckles)
Amber: I know.
Kevin: Good, okay. How about a, um, a flat white?
Ryder: Um, espresso, steamed milk.
Kevin: See? It's not so hard. Let's mix it up. Um, uh... hey, Lauren, what is your favorite coffee drink?
Kevin: (Sighs) Yeah, go for it. You're ready.
Kevin: He is really throwing himself into this.
Lauren: Yeah, seems to be.
Kevin: Well, it's important to him. He wants to feel like he belongs, like he's part of the family.
Lauren: Well, it's gonna take a little bit more than pouring a couple of drinks.
Kevin: What will it take for you to give the guy a chance?
Ryder: Hey, Kev? It's for you.
Ryder: Look, it's cool. I, um, I don't expect you to be all warm and fuzzy to me. But I just can't believe kegís willing to give me a second chance.
Lauren: I hope he doesn't regret it.
Ryder: Don't worry.
Michael: How long is the program at this cardiac rehab center?
Victor: Well-- thank you. (Groans) Oh, I tell you. (Exhales) Sometimes there's just pain from the surgery, you know? But to answer your question, my return will depend as much on Ashley's recovery as on mine. Um... I trust that you will keep an eye on her and the children?
Michael: Of course. Of course I will. What, um, what about Newman Enterprises?
Victor: Oh, Newman enterprises will be in very good hands with both Victoria and Nicholas. I just would like you to give a little greater role to Adam, all right?
Michael: Uh, Victor, the last time you were away--
Victor: It's a very different story now. I know what you're alluding to. But they can always reach me, and, um, they know what to expect, all right? I think my kids will handle the whole thing beautifully.
J.T.: Get away from my wife.
Victoria: J.T., don't do this. Donít.
Deacon: J.T., I did your wife a big favor, so what do you say we--
[J.T. hits Deacon]
Victoria: Hey! Oh!
Nick: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
J.T.: Don't let me ever catch you near her again, all right?!
Nick: Okay, that's enough.
Victoria: Give him some air.
Jana: Keep an eye on everything. We have to do this quickly, because if Ryder comes home, I don't want him thinking I'm trying to hex him or something.
Amber: Oh, he wouldn't think you would take it that seriously, would he?
Jana: He knows next to nothing about me, but I know even less about him.
Amber: Okay, well, let's change that. Let's--let's ask the board.
Jana: All right.
Jana: You go first. It's your board.
Amber: Oh, okay. Okay.
Jana: All right.
Amber: Um... how long will it take before my career takes off?
Jana: (Gasps) here we go. "D"... "E"...
Amber: Oh, December. That would be awesome.
Amber: It would be really, really, really cool.
Jana: Look. "A"... "D." "Dead"?
Amber: "Dead"? My career is not dead.
Jana: No, no, no, that, uh, that doesn't count.
Jana: No. Ask it something else.
Amber: Okay. Okay.
Jana: All right.
Amber: Um, will Daniel love me forever?
Amber: It's a yes-or-no question.
Jana: "E"... "A"... "D."
Amber: It's a faulty board. It's another faulty board. That's it.
Jana: (Gasps) No, I know. It's Ryder's photo.
Amber: Oh, what?
Jana: It's--it's throwing the answers off.
Amber: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Okay, there--there you go. That's it. That's it. Yeah.
Jana: Okay, all right.
Jana: All right. (Sighs) Who is the missing person in the photograph?
Jana: "D"... "E"...
Amber: Oh, it could be "Deacon."
Jana: "D." "Dead."
Michael: Victoria and Nicholas work well together. There's a lot of trust there.
Victor: But there's not so with Adam, is that your point?
Michael: You're already well aware of the resentments on both sides.
Michael: Look, if I may, I would suggest that you reinstate Adam at a time when he can answer directly to you. That would avoid the opportunity for conflict.
Victor: I understand what you're saying, but you must remember that I promised that boy that I would give him a chance to redeem himself, and I keep my word.
Victor: But you don't trust him, do you?
Michael: I have concerns that he may have alreadyó
(Knock on door)
Victor: Would you mind answering that?
Michael: Yes. (Sighs)
Adam: Excuse me. Sorry to interrupt, but, uh, I know who made the call to the S.E.C. (Sighs) It was from a company phone. These are the phone records.
Victor: Will you hold this glass for me?
Victor: What? That's very disappointing. It was one of my assistants. I would never have suspected that.
Michael: Uh, oh. Oh, would you please excuse me? I'll be back. Uh, yes, hello, Phyllis. Uh, regarding your dilemma about whether to work for Victor or not, apparently, he's leaving town for an extended period of time. Um, it's probably better if you let Nicholas be the one to tell you. Uh, call me.
(Cell phone buttons clicking)
Nick: Hey, Michael.
Michael: Yes, uh, Nicholas, I just left your father and Adam. He claims to have found the traitor among us.
Nick: Who was it?
Michael: I didn't catch a name, but apparently, it's someone your father would never have suspected until Adam accused him.
Nick: All right, I'm on my way.
Victoria: (Sighs) I will talk to Deacon, okay? I will make sure that he stays away from the press.
Nick: And the S.E.C.
Victoria: Yes. (Sighs)
Nick: Do I even want to know why J.T. socked that dude?
Victoria: No, because it's not relevant to the investigation at all.
Nick: You know how this looks, right? Like maybe you had Deacon come in and testify for you because you might have something to hide.
Victoria: I had no idea he was gonna do that.
Nick: Okay, look, I've been working on this deal in South America. I think you should go down there, handle it for a couple of weeks, until the heat on this thing goes away.
Victoria: What? Absolutely not.
Nick: Vick, this looks real bad for you, real bad.
Victoria: Well, it's gonna look worse if I run away.
Nick: No, you are not running away. You are laying low.
Victoria: And what will you be doing in the meantime? Are you gonna be taking charge?
Nick: Okay, whoa. Don't eve-- I'm trying to help you.
Victoria: Oh, sure. Yeah. Okay.
Nick: Vick, come on.
Victoria: Nick, I will not be marginalized.
Jana: All right, so whoever was in this picture has died.
Amber: Yeah. It's probably "Terrible Tom."
Jana: Yeah. Yeah, that makes perfect sense, because that's why Ryder was so touchy earlier.
Amber: Yeah, of course. Of course.
Jana: All right, so-- so mystery solved then, right?
Amber: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, we're--that's fine.
Amber: Did you move that there?
Jana: (Gasps) No. No.
Amber: Neither did I.
Deacon: Can I get a, uh, espresso macchiato. So when'd you get out?
Ryder: My brother bailed me out.
Deacon: Your brother b-- (Laughs) That--sorry. That's--that's hysterical.
Ryder: Yeah, he used the reward money from the painting you tried to steal. Get your coffee someplace else, man.
Deacon: Hey, my money's as good as anyone elseís.
Ryder: Not as far as I'm concerned.
Kevin: Yeah, I think actually we're all out of, uh...
Kevin: Espresso. Yep, all out of it. Sorry.
Deacon: You-- you know what? To hell with both of you.
Ryder: I probably shouldn't have caused a scene.
Kevin: Well, that guy's scum. Good for you.
Ryder: Thanks for backing me up.
Kevin: That's what brothers are for.
Lauren: Okay. So maybe I've been a little hard on him. I'm willing to go forward with an open mind.
Kevin: That's all I'm asking.
Lauren: So why don't you and Jana and your brother come over for dinner tonight?
Kevin: Well, you know, you're always hosting. Uh, let's do it at our place.
Lauren: You can't spring this on Jana last-minute.
Kevin: You were just gonna spring it on Michael.
Lauren: Okay. All right, your place, I'm hosting.
Kevin: (Chuckles) Okay, that's a deal.
Kevin: Thank you.
J.T.: (Sighs) Look, I didn't--I didn't know the press was here, all right?
Victoria: (Sighs) Our private issue just became incredibly public.
J.T.: Well, look, I wasn't trying to embarrass you. But that guy had it coming.
Victoria: (Sighs) I didn't know that Deacon was gonna be here, okay? I really didnít. It wasn't personal. He was just trying to help with the S.E.C. investigation.
J.T.: You don't think that his motivation was personal?
Victoria: Well, the S.E.C. certainly thinks so now, thanks to you. I am in so much hot water here. I-- Nick just asked me to-- to step aside from Newman. I just need your support right now, but instead, I'm-- I don't know what I'm getting.
J.T.: The company in New York offered me the job. I'd make a lot of money. I can support all of us on my own.
Victoria: You want me to give up my job?
J.T.: I'm giving you the option. Look, I know how much you like working for your father, but we-- (Sighs) Hell, I don't know what we need right now, but this isn't working.
Victoria: I don't like the idea of running away when things get rough. I don't like it.
J.T.: Well, then don't run away from me.
Phyllis: Oh, shoot. You know, Ashley, do you mind? I want to check to make sure that this isn't about Summer.
Ashley: Maybe it was a mistake staying here at the ranch.
Phyllis: Yeah, it's tough trying to break free from Victor's influence when he could be walking around the corner at any time.
Ashley: And he does.
Phyllis: Oh, my God.
Ashley: Is something wrong?
Phyllis: Uh, Victor's leaving Genoa City.
Victor: So what do you know about this man Sharpe?
Nick: He is nothing but trouble. You can ask Michael. He was part of the ring that framed Daniel for murder.
Adam: How'd Victoria get mixed up with a character like this?
Nick: She bought some art from him for the foundation.
Victor: Hmm. So if J.T. hadnít interfered...
Nick: The S.E.C. may have backed away, but that is not gonna happen now. I told Victoria she needs to take a break. She should go down to South America and handle those negotiations, but...
Victor: She doesn't want to do that?
Nick: She wants to stay and fight.
Victor: I'll talk to her about it. Meanwhile, I want Adam to have more responsibility.
Nick: (Sighs) It's not a good idea, Dad. We're in crisis mode. And honestly, I can't help but wonder--
Victor: Son, I'm not asking you. I'm telling you, all right?
Nick: I need people I can rely on.
Adam: Everything you've asked me to do, I have done and done well.
Victor: Nicholas, I understand your concerns. I promised Adam that I'd give him a chance to redeem himself.
Nick: And if he uses that to stab us in the back again?
Victor: That would not be a good idea.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Mac: You think I should end things?
Kevin: He's gonna keep hurting you if you let him.
Abby: She's the reason you and Mom are getting a divorce?
Ashley: This is how you spent my money? By attacking the father of my children?
Billy: (Grunts) All right.
