Ashley: Hi, Victor. It's Ashley. Would you call me as soon as you get this? Thanks. Noah. You're really leaving?

Noah: Finally, right?

Abby: (Chuckles)

Ashley: No. We loved having you here.

Abby: Tell me about it.

Noah: Hey, I'll visit. I promise.

Abby: Yeah, Dad'll make sure of that. You know how he likes to have the entire family at the ranch. (Chuckles)

Nick: (Chuckles) Well, we better get going before your mom thinks you changed your mind about moving in with her.

Noah: (Sighs) All right.

Ashley: Uh, Abby, um, hey, guys, can you spare her for a little bit? I need to talk to her.

Noah: You can help me unpack.

Abby: Okay.

Ashley: See you later.

Abby: Don't worry. I already asked the staff to start prepping for Dad's homecoming party.

Ashley: Baby, maybe you shouldn't have done that.

Abby: Why not?

Ashley: 'Cause your dad's not coming home.

Nikki: I stopped by the pharmacy and got your prescriptions refilled, and I didn't know what you'd had sent over from the ranch, so I got you some of those cashmere socks that you like and some candles. You know, just to try to make this room smell at least like home...

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Nikki: You know.

Victor: That's very sweet of you.

Nikki: (Sighs)

Victor: But I doubt seriously that I'm going to need any of that where I'm going.

Nikki: What do you mean? Where are you going?

Victor: I'm going to go to a rehab clinic in Belgium, a rehab clinic for transplant patients. Dr. Swift thought it would speed up the healing process.

Nikki: Oh, I see. Well, I've chased you away, have I?

Victor: (Sighs) I want you to come with me.

Kevin: You did not need to do this. You know, Lauren and I had a deal-- she would host the party, but we would have it here.

Jana: I said that I would share the job.

Kevin: Hmm. Thank you.

Jana: Mm-hmm. I just want you to be happy.

Kevin: Well, if my brother's happy, then I'm happy.

Jana: Hmm.

Michael: Hey, hey. Bottle of red, bottle of white.

Kevin: Hey.

Lauren: And assorted cheeses, of course.

Michael: Yummy.

Jana: Ooh.

Kevin: You guys, I so appreciate you hosting this "Welcome to the family" thing for Ryder. You won't be sorry.

Lauren: (Chuckles) Do you need some help?

Jana: Absolutely.

Lauren: Excellent.

Jana: Okay.

Kevin: Come see our new stereo.

Michael: Really?

Kevin: Mm-hmm.

Michael: Oh.

Lauren: (Whispering) All right, so what was with that message you left me about seeing Ryder with a dead person?

Jana: (Whispering) Okay. It's in a photograph. It's a picture of Ryder when he was a really young kid, and there's a small glimpse of somebody standing next to him, but I can't see who it is, because the picture's been torn in half.

Lauren: So how do you know the person's dead?

Jana: The Ouija board told me.

Lauren: The Ouija-- Jana?

Jana: Hmm?

Lauren: I thought you told me you threw it away.

Jana: Amber got me a new one.

Lauren: (Chuckles) Lucky us. Okay. All right. Then tell me, what did the Ouija board say?

Jana: (Sighs)

Lauren: What is this man or woman's name?

Jana: Okay, well, I don't know, but when I asked Ryder about it, he got extremely defensive.

Lauren: Which of course means he's hiding something.

Jana: Yes. So here's what I'm thinking.

Lauren: Hmm?

Jana: I'm just gonna casually bring up the subject of dead people at dinner, and see if he says anything.

Lauren: How do you "Casually" bring up the subject of dead people?

Jana: Ahh.

Lauren: You can't do that.

Jana: Well, see, that's where you come in.

Lauren: Where I come in?

Jana: Uh-huh.

Lauren: Oh, I don't think I can do that.

Jana: Oh, yes, you can.

Michael: (Clears throat) Whatever you two are planning...

Lauren: (Sighs)

Michael: For the sake of your husbands, don't do it.

Lauren: (Chuckles)

Jeff: Why are we going to this dinner again?

Gloria: Because Kevin wants Ryder to feel like he belongs to a real family.

Jeff: And he thought of us?

Gloria: It's a free meal, Jeffrey.

Jeff: Uh-huh. Well, if it's free, why do we have to bring dessert?

Gloria: Hey, we're not buying it. I can't believe we're so broke we can't even afford a bag of brownies.

Jeff: Yeah, well, you know what? You can thank your pal Victor Newman for that.

Gloria: I'd like to thank Victor Newman by shoving that whole bag up his--

Jeff: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Looks like somebody already did the shoving for us. "He takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin', but who knew Victor Newman even had a heart?"

Gloria: (Chuckles)

Jeff: (Chuckles)

Gloria: My, my, my.

Chloe: Oh, so you pulled the dog.

Billy: I told you, I want to make a splash.

Chloe: Well, mission accomplished.

Billy: Well, I guarantee, they'll be flying off the shelves because as you know, tabloid sells.

Mac: What were you thinking?

Billy: (Sighs)

Victor: You know I have no patience for doctors and nurses. And if I have to spend all that time looking at four walls of the hospital without being distracted by your beautiful face, I'll go nuts.

Nikki: Well, I'd have to speak to the kids first.

Victor: They're grown up. You don't need their approval.

Nikki: Well, I just hate that I was gone when they needed me last time. I want to know that I'm leaving them in good shape.

Victor: And if they agree, you'll come?

Nikki: Just to see you through your recovery.

Victor: Mm-hmm. That the only reason?

Nikki: Victor, I think it's best that we don't think beyond that right now.

Victor: You're doing it again.

Nikki: What?

Victor: You're avoiding the subject of "Us." Why are you doing that? Are you afraid?

Abby: But if he's not coming home, then where's he gonna go?

Ashley: He's gonna be staying at the Athletic Club for a while.

Abby: Why?

Ashley: Abby...

Abby: Oh, my God. You guys are splitting up, aren't you?

Ashley: I know how upsetting this is. Let me--

Abby: You kept saying at the hospital that you were just staying away from him for the baby, but I knew it was something else. What happened?

Ashley: I guess you could say that we grew apart.

Abby: But you just had a baby together, and Dad just finished fighting for his life. No way would you guys just suddenly decide to break up if it weren't something big.

Ashley: My reasons are personal, Honey.

Abby: This was your idea? But you're the one that kept on saying that we moved back to Genoa City to be a family.

Ashley: I know. I'm sorry.

Abby: No, if it-- if you knew, then you wouldn't be doing this. Victor's been totally awesome to me and to you. And he's done everything for us. He got me a horse and riding lessons, anything I wanted, because he loves us.

Ashley: He still loves you. Nothing's ever gonna change that.

Abby: Isn't there something you can do? Some way you that you guys can work this out?

Ashley: I don't think so, Honey.

Abby: Can't you try?

Ashley: (Sighs) Abby, where are you going?

Abby: To see Dad.

Ashley: Well, let me take you.

Abby: I'll ask Chuck. I just--I don't even want to be around you right now.

Ashley: Abby, wait for me. Abby! Honey, please.

(Front door closes)

Ashley: Abby!

Sharon: Okay, I'm here. I'm here. Just put 'em over there, like, by the other chair.

Nick: Oh.

Sharon: On the chair. Hey, you missing someone?

Nick: Yeah, he, uh, Noah had to get some gas.

Sharon: Oh, okay, well, as long as he's still coming.

Nick: Is that Noah's favorite chocolate chips I smell?

Sharon: Yes. I couldn't help it. I'm just so excited that I can give him a real home now, not Jack's house or the club.

Nick: You look happy.

Sharon: I still have my moments, you know, when I-I think about Faith.

Nick: I know.

Sharon: And sometimes, um, sometimes when I wake up, it--it feels like I didn't really lose her, and she's still alive. But, um, you know, I-I move on from that. And moving, um, here has helped.

Nick: Yeah, a change of scenery's always good.

Sharon: Yeah. Um, you know, I rearranged a few things. I made it seem more like home. I even planted some spring bulbs.

Nick: (Chuckles)

Sharon: (Chuckles)

Nick: It seems like you're really settling in.

Sharon: Yeah, and it's not just the house, you know. Um, job-wise, I have a few exciting prospects.

Nick: Look at you. I guess you were right when you told me to stop worrying about you. You seem great, and I'm proud of you.


Jeff: "Newman, better known as 'the Grinch' before his heart grew, is a man of few words..." (Chuckles) "Most of which the masses can't understand, because of his incessant mumbling."

Gloria: Aw. (Imitating Victor) I always thought the mumbling was rather sexy. (Snickers) Come on. Come on.

Jeff: Mm... okay, all right. Oh, what's this? "Newman's nothing if not savvy, knowing enough to pull his millions from banks in the Caymans just days before those same institutions went belly-up." Did you leak that?

Gloria: Yeah, I wish. I might have been compensated.

Jeff: Might still be able to be. Newman Enterprises is already in hot water with the S.E.C. if it can be proven that Victor had insider information, poor manipulated souls like ourselves might actually be compensated by suing the Grinch himself. (Chuckles)

Gloria: Hmm.

Michael: I'm having as much trouble embracing Ryder as you, but Kevin has just lit up that he was able to get this guy out of jail. So maybe just for tonight, for his sake, we can put our suspicion on hold and try to prevent another Fisher/Baldwin get-together from degenerating into a chaotic free-for-all.

Lauren: We just want to make sure that Kevin's not being played.

Jana: Yeah, or isn't in any danger.

Lauren: Right.

Michael: Things will be tense enough tonight when Gloria and her partner in crime get here without adding to the tension by putting my little brother on the defensive.

Ryder: This dinner really means a lot to me. I know I've still got a lot to prove to you all, but--but I'm hoping that in time, you'll realize I-I'm not such a bad guy.

Kevin: Everybody here wants to believe that.

Ryder: (Sighs)

Jana: (Clears throat)

Kevin: Right, guys?

Sharon: So, do you think he'll like it?

Nick: Are you kidding me? When I was a teenager, if I had a setup like that, I never would have left home.

Sharon: Um, I found that at the bottom of a box of my stuff.

Nick: (Sighs) Do you remember the Halloween where she was too sick to go trick-or-treating?

Sharon: Yeah, and Victor, um, he turned the company jet into a Halloween haunted house. I thought her eyes were gonna pop out of her head when he-- when she saw what he did. (Laughs)

Nick: (Chuckles) I remember Noah being pretty impressed with his handiwork, too.

Sharon: Yeah.

Nick: You know, for all of Dad's faults, he's done some really amazing things for his family over the years.

Sharon: He certainly does know how to put on a show.

Nick: Yeah.

Sharon: So, um, what's Summer gonna be for Halloween?

Nick: Oh, she is all about princesses.

Sharon: Oh, gosh, I remember that age. I think I was, um, I was Rapunzel then. It's a rite of passage or something. I--

Nick: Yeah, I think I saw a picture of you in that costume. I think you were crying.

Sharon: Oh, well, you know what? Uh, yeah, I had just broken my magic wand.

Nick: Yeah, I think you hit another kid with it, right?

Sharon: Well, he was stealing my candy.

Noah: Sorry I'm late.

Nick: (Sighs)

Sharon: (Chuckles)

Noah: When I saw the latest issue of "Restless Style" at the gas station, I had to stop and read it.

Nick: Didn't know you had a thing for Yorkies, son.

Noah: This is definitely not about Yorkies.

Mac: I thought you wanted to use this magazine to make a positive difference, not give every other tabloid rag a run for its money.

Billy: Look, I don't know why you're so upset. You know how I feel about Victor.

Mac: What about his family? They just got over the fear that he might not make it another day, and now they're gonna be hit with this.

Billy: Every word written's true, so if they have a problem, they can take it up with "The mustache." Look, I-I know that you wanted me to use this magazine as a vehicle for change and enlightenment.

Mac: I thought you wanted that, too.

Billy: I do. I do. It's just right now, if I want to prove to my family that this is not just another "Billy bumble," well, then I gotta show a profit.

Mac: Traci made a wonderful gesture giving Victor Colleen's heart. That one act could've ended the feud between your families forever, and with this, you've started it all over again.

Billy: (Clears throat) Hmm.

Chloe: (Sighs)

Nikki: Well, if you're leaving, we've gotta get you packed up. Oh, that reminds me, some of your medications are in liquid form. Let me see.

Victor: Sweetheart... (Sighs) You didn't answer my question.

Nikki: (Sighs) All right, I am afraid. When I left for Colorado, I had convinced myself that what you and I had was over. I loved you, yes-- always would-- but I was prepared to go on without you. And now if I were to open my heart to you again, after knowing what happened... I mean, let's face it, Victor. A year ago, you couldn't stand the sight of me.

Victor: Sweetheart, I was angry with you, but the night you left me, you looked me in the eye, and you told me that I'll never love another woman the way I've loved you, and you are right. That's why we keep on coming back to each other. It's not a coincidence that now, during the worst time in my life, you're at my side.

Abby: She's the reason you and Mom are getting a divorce?

Michael: (Chuckles) I can't believe I'm actually looking forward to seeing my mother. (Chuckles)

Lauren: I know, right? What is keeping her and Jeff?

Michael: Mm.

Jana: Oh, probably stealing desserts from the coffeehouse.

Lauren: (Laughs)

Michael: (Chuckles)

Ryder: Hey, I didn't know you were such an amazing cook. These-- these little hot dog things, they're really great.

Jana: Oh, they're premade from a box.

Ryder: Well, they're a lot better than most of the nasty grub I've been eating.

Lauren: Mm, I'm sure you were subjected to a lot of nasty things behind bars. How did you protect yourself?

Ryder: Well, you know, I just--I tried to steer clear of pretty much everybody. It kind of reminded me of when I was a kid and-- and Tom would get in one of his moods.

Kevin: I can relate.

Michael: Why don't we play a game?

Lauren: Oh, that is a great idea.

Michael: Yeah?

Lauren: What about, um, "Twenty questions," yes? And, oh, Ryder, seeing that you're the guest of honor, you should go first.

Ryder: Uh, I am... I'm thinking of something. (Chuckles)

Michael: Yeah. (Laughter)

Lauren: That's good.

Michael: Is it, uh, bigger than a laptop?

Ryder: Yeah.

Michael: Uh, is it smaller than this apartment?

Jana: Is it dead?

Ryder: What?

Jana: Oh... (Chuckles) Silly question. (Chuckles)

Michael: (Chuckles)

Lauren: (Chuckles) No, no, no, no, no. Not necessarily. I mean, he could be thinking of someone dead. Just please, God, not your demonic father.

Kevin: What are you getting at?

Lauren: Jana and I were talking earlier, and just--we just don't seem to know enough about Ryder. You know, we know that you're from Green Bay. But we don't know how long you were there, whether you liked it, what you did for fun.

Ryder: I played ball. Uh, you know, anything to get out of the house, stay out of trouble.

Lauren: You know, there's that, um, that park there. The kids love it. What is it called? What--

Michael: I-I thought you weren't gonna do this.

Ryder: Ashwaubomay.

Lauren: (Clicks tongue) On the beach.

Ryder: You must mean on the lake.

Lauren: There are some great places there. There are. There's that, uh, oh, and they have that art and music festival. They call it, um... Artigas.

Ryder: Artstreet. Artigras is different.

Lauren: Right.

Kevin: Well, don't stop now. You're on a roll.

Lauren: What do you mean?

Kevin: I mean, we were playing a game, and now it's an interrogation.

Michael: Oh, come on, come on. We're still playing a game. And if my counting is correct, we have only asked Ryder two legitimate questions, which leaves 18 for us to figure out what he is thinking.

(Front door opens)

(Knock on door)

Gloria: Hello. Knock, knock. I'm so sorry we're late.

Michael: There you are.

Gloria: Ryder, a little something for the sweet tooth. (Chuckles) (Whispering) Come here.

Michael: Huh?

Gloria: Come here.

Lauren: Mm-hmm.

Jana: Oh, yeah, told you.

Lauren: (Chuckles)

Michael: What? What's wrong?

Gloria: You are going to make us very wealthy once again.

Victor: Sweetheart, let's talk about this.

Abby: No.

Nikki: I'm gonna go see if I can find Nicholas and Victoria.

Victor: (Sighs)

Abby: W-why did you let me think that you were the one who wanted to break up? And why are you with her? Did you just stop loving Mom?

Victor: Of course not, Sweetheart.

Abby: Then I don't get it. I thought that you were happy that we came to stay with you, that you wanted us to be together.

Victor: And I did.

Ashley: We both did, Honey.

Abby: This doesn't make any sense.

Victor: No, it doesn't, but I've caused your mother a lot of pain.

Abby: This is about Colleen, isn't it? I get it, okay? I can't walk 2 feet down the school hallway without hearing whispers about how my dad stole a heart from someone he killed. But what happened to Colleen was Patty Williams' fault, and I don't think Dad had anything to do with it.

Ashley: Honey, you're gonna have to accept what I told you. The reasons for the divorce are between your father and me, and honestly, we both wanted it so badly. We wanted it to work out. And we both decided that for your sake and for Faith's sake, it was better if we ended things before any more pain was caused.

Billy: Uh, look, I-I knew there'd be some backlash, but I didn't expect the woman that I love to dog me. Now I know you're upset, but wait till you see the numbers. Okay, you don't care about numbers, do you?

Mac: No. What I care about is that you don't see anything wrong with this. What you did wasn't cutting-edge and controversial, it was cruel.

Billy: Y-you know that's not true.

Chloe: You know, I think that it was a great idea, and I think it's gonna break records, and I am personally psyched to be part of it.

Mac: Good. Once the Newmans see this, he'll need all the support he can get.

Nick: If Billy thinks he can buy this magazine and use it to attack my father, he's got another thing coming.

Sharon: Where are you going?

Nick: To let Dad know. You good?

Noah: Yeah, totally. Thanks for the hand.

Nick: No problem. Bye.

Noah: (Sighs) Ma, you okay?

Sharon: I just took a job with Billy at "Restless Style."

Noah: No way.

Sharon: Yeah. Um, I had no idea that he was gonna do this to your grandfather.

Noah: Well, what are you gonna do?

Sharon: The only thing I can do-- quit.

Victor: Sweetheart, I really am sorry about all the pain this is causing you.

Abby: But I-I just don't get it. How is our family breaking up a good thing? Faith is too young to know better, but it's not fair that she's only gonna have one parent to raise her.

Ashley: Abby, Faith has two parents. So do you.

Victor: Your mother's right.

Abby: Oh, now you agree.

Ashley: Honey, I know how difficult this is. Believe me, but please just try and understand.

Abby: No, I'm done trying to understand, because I don't. First, my other dad dies, and then Colleen, and now the one thing that I could always count on-- my family--is falling apart.

Ashley: Abby? Abby? Please.

Abby: Please, just leave me alone.

Ashley: So I take it you didn't get my message. I heard a rumor that you were leaving town, and I wanted to find out if it was true before I told her.

Victor: I'm going to go to a rehab clinic in Belgium, a rehab clinic for transplant patients. But now after what happened, I--

Ashley: No, Victor, you definitely should go. It'll give Abby a chance to, I don't know, get used to the changes, and you need to gain your strength back.

Victor: I'll think about it.

Ashley: Okay. Well, I should go.

Victor: Yeah.

Ashley: I have a question-- does your leaving have anything to do with me?

Victor: (Sighs) I've caused you so much pain, I just can't stand it anymore. But one thing I want to make clear to you-- when I come back, I want to take an active role in the lives of my children, all right? Because you told me that I was given an incredible gift, and I will not take that for granted again.

Michael: The man gets a new lease on life for this?

Jeff: (Chuckles)

Gloria: (Chuckles)

Jeff: I don't give a damn about his "New lease on life." I just want the money we were cheated out of in the Caymans.

Michael: And you think he should be held liable.

Gloria: Yes, and as our lawyer, you need to prove that.

Michael: This article is pure specu--hold on. Wait a minute. What the--I'm your what?

Gloria: Mm-hmm.

Jeff: Don't look so dumbfounded. People sue on these grounds all the time.

Michael: I work for Victor.

Gloria: And I'm sure you'll find a loophole around it.

Michael: The man has me on retainer. Taking your case would be a total... (Clicks tongue) Conflict of interest.

Gloria: You choose Victor Newman over the woman who gave you life?

Jeff: Yeah.

Michael: (Chuckles)

Gloria: (Chuckles)

Lauren: Should we go out and save Michael?

Kevin: Why? We haven't guessed what Ryder is thinking yet.

Ryder: I'm thinking that I'm breaking up a family when all I wanted to do was be part of one.

Kevin: You're not breaking us up.

Ryder: Look, if you have something to ask me, you don't have to hide it behind some stupid game.

Lauren: Tell me about your mother.

Billy: How about you just write a letter to the editor if you don't like it, okay? Thank you.

Chloe: Good for you for not apologizing.

Billy: No, oh, wait. Wait. Mac, Mac, Mac, Mac, Mac. Look, you know how much I hate it when you're mad at me.

Mac: I'm not mad. I'm disappointed.

Billy: Okay, that's worse. Look, why don't you meet me at the trailer, and I'll hear you out? I promise.

Mac: But will you do anything about it?

Billy: Well, I'll do something, but--

Mac: Yeah, I didn't think so.

Billy: (Sighs)

Chloe: You can't expect everyone to get it.

(Door slams)

Chloe: You know?

Billy: Whew. Well, she'll come around.

(Telephone rings)

Chloe: Yeah, we'll see. Here, I'll get it.

Billy: No, no, no. I-I got it.

Chloe: Well--

Billy: I actually like to hear from the masses. Hello? Yeah, well, I'll tell you what, you can--hey! If it's not my first official hire.

Chloe: You hired her?

Ashley: This is how you spent my money? By attacking the father of my children?

Billy: (Grunts) All right.

Victor: (Sighs) Boy, sometimes I still feel this. But I'm glad you're here. There's some things we need to discuss.

Nick: Well, before that, you need to take a look at this.

Ryder: I didn't know my mother. She kinda nixed that when she walked out the door, left me with Tom.

Lauren: And you never heard from her after that?

Ryder: Nope.

Jana: Is it possible she's dead?

Ryder: (Scoffs) Could be.

Lauren: Well, tell us her name, and we'll try and find her for you.

Ryder: (Chuckles) Why?

Lauren: Don't you want to know what happened to her?

Ryder: Not especially.

Kevin: He does not want to see her, okay?

Lauren: (Sighs) Well, what about brothers and sisters?

Ryder: Until I found Kevin, I-I thought I was an only child.

(Telephone rings)

Jana: I'll get it. (Clears throat)

Kevin: (Sighs)

Jana: Hello? Oh, no! You sure there's no one else? (Sighs) Right. Okay. I'll see what I can do. (Clicks tongue) Sarah phoned in sick, and that blasted espresso machine's on the fritz again.

Ryder: Hey, I-I can cover for her, and then I'll fix the espresso machine.

Lauren: Oh, well, you can't leave. This whole night is about you.

Kevin: Clearly.

Ryder: Yeah.

Kevin: If you wouldn't mind, that would be great.

Ryder: No, no. That's fine.

Gloria: I'm your mother. Doesn't that mean anything--?

Michael: Mother, you don't even know the meaning of the word! You'd have to look it up in the dictionary.

Gloria: Oh, that's--

Lauren: You know, it does seem like Michael needs saving.

Kevin: Not so fast. Earlier, when I was thanking you both for making an effort, I was thinking how lucky I was to have such a great family, and how much I wanted Ryder to be a part of that. But now, after your behavior tonight, he's feeling more alienated than before.

(Knock on door)

Michael: I told you, it's impossible.

Gloria: Crackerjack lawyer like you, nothing is impossible.

Kevin: You need some help, Mike?

All: No.

Mac: Bad time?

Kevin: No, no. What's up?

Mac: It's Billy.

Kevin: (Sighs) Look, Mac, I love you, but unless you want to talk about what a screw-up "Willy" is, then, um, maybe you should find another friend to talk to.

Mac: The weird thing is, that's exactly why I'm here.

Ashley: I just spent a half an hour trying to assure Abby that I wasn't leaving her father because of anything he did to have her read that.

Billy: (Sighs) Could you just come over here? Please? Look, I know it's harsh, okay? But CeeCee's dead, and he is the reason why, and I'm not gonna let him get away with it, okay?

Ashley: Look, I understand that you're upset about Colleen. We all are. But for you to lash out through a tabloid exposé, Billy, come on. It's beneath you.

Billy: It was business.

Ashley: Oh, God.

Billy: Come on. You know about business. Yeah, I wanted to stick it to Victor, but more importantly, I have to make a big splash here. I have to make an impression.

Ashley: Mm-hmm.

Billy: And this was, by far, the easiest, and I predict, most profitable way to do that.

Ashley: Well, your money-driven decision is gonna hurt a lot of people, Billy Abbott. I just hope that your profit is worth what you lose, little brother.

Billy: Sis--

Ashley: No.

Billy: (Groans) "Little brother."

Ashley: Uh-huh.

Billy: Thank you.

Nick: If I'd known he was gonna run this smear campaign against you, Dad, I never would have convinced Phyllis to sell.

Victor: Mm-hmm. Billy didn't act alone.

Nick: Jack.

Nikki: Have you seen this?

Victor: Yes, I have.

Nikki: (Sighs) After everything that you've been through, for Billy to launch an attack like this-- I can't believe it.

Victor: Well, I've been attacked far worse than that, haven't I?

Nick: Dad, you should know the money Billy used to buy "Restless Style" came from an account of Ashley's.

Victor: To be honest with you, I don't think she-- she would have known that he would do that.

Nikki: I would hope not.

Victor: Besides that, being attacked by the Abbotts certainly is nothing new to the Newmans, is it?

Nick: So what do we want to do about it?

Victor: Nothing, son.

Nick: You don't want to do anything?

Victor: No. Certainly not now, and I'll tell you why. I just had to tell Abby that I'm divorcing her mother, and I don't want Abby to be dragged into a family feud.

Nick: Well, you may not want to retaliate, but there is no way in hell I am letting this go.

Ryder: What can I get for you?

Abby: What's good?

Ryder: Uh, that's up to you. Let me know when you decide.

Abby: Double-shot latté, extra foam, but make sure you use low-fat milk. I have to watch my sugar intake. I'm a model. Maybe you saw me on the cover of "Restless Style."

Ryder: Mm. I think I missed that. Sorry. Nice.

Abby: (Chuckles)

Ryder: That'll be $3.50.

Abby: (Sighs) I could send it to you, and that way, you'll have my number on your phone.

Ryder: How old are you?

Abby: (Scoffs) 18.

Noah: Funny. Two weeks ago, you were 14.

Ryder: (Chuckles)

Abby: Thanks a lot. (Scoffs)

Noah: That guy is in his 20s.

Abby: So what? If everyone else can do whatever they want without worrying about the consequences, so can I.

Jana: My God, did you see how fast he jumped to cover that shift?

Lauren: I know. I know. I mean, either he's shy, or I was getting way too close for comfort, which means you and I have to do some digging on our own to make sure he's not hiding something.

Jeff: Okay, where's the eats?

Jana: I just put them away.

Lauren: I can't believe you're still hungry.

Gloria: Don't you know that growing boys always need seconds and thirds?

Jeff: And hopefully, thirds and fourths, if you can fit them into your purse.

Gloria: Mm, yeah. Mm.

Lauren: In there. Uh, what was all the yelling?

Michael: Uh, I was battling the devil for my soul, and I lost. Don't ask me how, but, uh, I just let my mother talk me into trying to help her sue my boss.

Lauren: What? Can you even do that?

Michael: Not legally, not ethically, but I told her I'd try.

Lauren: (Sighs)

Michael: And for the life of me, I don't know why.

Mac: I came to you because I knew you'd give it to me straight.

Kevin: You want me to give it to you straight?

Mac: Yeah.

Kevin: I think that what Billy did is nothing. Uh, nothing for Billy. It's just one in a long line of things that he's going to do to disappoint you. So maybe the question you need to ask yourself is, do you want to keep making excuses for him? Because he is who he is, and there's nothing that you can do to change that.

Mac: So you're saying you think I should end things.

Kevin: (Sighs) I'm just saying that he's gonna keep hurting you if you let him. I'm sorry, Mac, but you know how I feel about Billy. You knew what I'd say.

Ryder: Yeah, it's me. It's all going as planned.

Nikki: I still can't believe Billy would stoop so low.

Victor: Enough about Billy, all right? (Sighs) I want to get back to where we were before we were interrupted.

Nikki: Victor... (Sighs) I really need to think about this.

Victor: Shh. Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh.

Chloe: (Clears throat) So you just can't get enough, can you? (Chuckles) Not with Nick or Jack or Billy or--am I forgetting someone?

Sharon: For your information, Chloe, I'm here to give my notice.

Chloe: Oh, good.

Nick: I should have known you'd come. I wish Dad could see how willing people are to come to his defense.

Billy: Actually, she's not here to protect the mustache, she's here to work for me.

Nick: So this is one of those "Exciting job prospects."

Sharon: Nick, I knew nothing about this.

Nick: Uh, you know what, Sharon? It's--its okay. Phyllis and I trusted you with this magazine.

Billy: Well, I'm sorry if you don't like the direction it's going in, but, uh, it's a done deal. Too late to take it back.

Nick: No, you get to keep the magazine. But this building is mine, and you've got 15 minutes to vacate it.

Billy: (Laughs) Oh, man, you can't be serious.

Nick: You mess with my father, and you mess with me. Now get your stuff and get the hell out.

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

Adam: I understand why Billy lashed out.

Nick: Oh, I'll bet you do.

Deacon: Yeah, I got nothing to say.

Billy: That's okay, because I'm pretty sure these pictures say it all.

Victor: And I've done things I'm not proud of, but I have no regrets.
