Victor: (Sighs) Good morning.
Nikki: Mm. Good morning. Oh, am I hurting you?
Victor: No. No, no. Not at all. Mnh-mnh.
Nikki: Mm. (Sighs) I can feel your heart beating.
Victor: Can you?
Nikki: The rhythm of life. And I think yours is doing the samba.
Victor: (Laughs) Mm. Every morning, I wake up... so grateful for this gift of life.
Nikki: (Sighs) I was so worried we were gonna lose you.
Victor: I'm not gonna go anywhere, not for a long time, and not without you. I'm so happy that you're coming to Europe with me.
Nikki: (Sighs) Well, somebody has to make sure you check in to that cardiac rehab center.
Victor: I know you don't want to make any plans now, but, you know, this beautiful ring is a promise that we will take things one step at a time, but together.
Victoria: Tell them I have no comment on the S.E.C. investigation. (Sighs) All right, well, in that case, transfer my calls to Jennifer. Let her handle it. It's what we pay her for, right? Okay. (Closes cell phone, slams it down on table) (Sighs)
Adam: Anything I can do?
Victoria: Did you analyze the sales figures for Indiana?
Adam: I have, but it's not like it's something that, uh, your assistant couldn't have done. I was thinking more along the lines of lightening your load while you, uh, deal with the S.E.C. I don't know if you've heard, but, uh, Dad told Nick that I should, uh, take on more responsibility.
Victoria: Oh, well, in that case, you can analyze the breakout sales figures for all 50 states. Some of our smaller markets could benefit from a personal visit.
Adam: Glad to help any way I can.
Jack: Call me--now! Billy isn't even picking up.
Ashley: Jack, you helped write the article that trashed Victor, and now you're upset. I mean, really?
Jack: I specifically told him to stay away from Patty, and what does he do?
Ashley: I "Specifically" told you for 20 years to stop warring with Victor. Did you ever listen to me once? Welcome to the "My brother ignores me" club.
Kay: What in the hell was Billy thinking? I thought striking out on his own with that magazine was quite remarkable... until I read this. And I-I-I-I-I'm so disappointed.
Ashley: I know. We all are.
Kay: (Sighs) All right. I'm--I'm gonna give him a piece of my mind.
Jack: Get in line.
Billy: Um, five hairy spiders, five skeleton spiders, a couple of hanging skulls... oh, the sign? I don't know. Um... "Billy's second annual Halloween extravaganza." Hey, Mac, I-I really appreciate you doing this for me. No, I know. I-I know. I know. Can we--can--can we at least talk about it?
(Elevator door opens)
Billy: Okay. Fine. Later. I got--I--oh, I got to go. (Clears throat)
Nick: You're supposed to be gone.
Billy: Well, I'm not Houdini. I can't make a business disappear overnight.
Nick: Now, Billy, you pulled off that hatchet job on my dad in just a couple of hours. This should be easy for you.
Billy: Well, Nick, my lawyers don't think that you have the right to kick me out.
Nick: So sue me.
Billy: I'm not gonna stop publishing "Restless Style." I'll do it out of my damn car if I have to. Oh, man. I thought you were above this sort of thing.
Nick: You're a crazy man if you thought I was gonna let this go. You got till the end of the day to get out of here.
Billy: (Laughs) (Groans)
Jack: Katherine, we are all upset with what Billy has done, but what can be done about it? I mean, the magazine is on the stands.
Kay: Well, I thought Colleen's death would have taught him something. Uh, Victor's not going to brush this off.
Jack: Don't I know. Listen, maybe its better that Billy isn't coming back to Jabot now. I mean, Ashley and I have worked together very effectively for years. We're a strong leadership team. We work in shorthand.
Kay: Um, isn't it just a little early for you to come back to work?
Ashley: I haven't really thought about it.
Kay: Well, now listen, you, um, take your time. Your job will always be there for you when you decide to come back.
Ashley: Thank you. You know, I'd better get Faith home. It was wonderful seeing you.
Nikki: Victor, please don't move. Don't. Stop.
Victor: I have to take these pills, baby.
Nikki: Just wait, wait, wait. Just--just for one second.
Victor: Mm-hmm. Wait a minute.
Nikki: Victor. (Sighs)
Nikki: All right.
Victor: (Inhales sharply) (Growls)
Nikki: Okay, it's done. And we have plenty of time to talk to the kids before our flight.
Victor: Mm-hmm. (Sighs) Are you worried about their reaction, or what?
Nikki: I just want to make sure that they don't need me here. I mean, they're both going through a lot.
Victor: I know, especially Victoria with this S.E.C. mess.
Nikki: Yeah. Do you think she can handle it on her own?
Victor: Well, otherwise, I wouldn't go to Belgium if I didn't think she could. I'm just concerned about how the business community will react. I don't want them to misunderstand why I'm leaving.
Nikki: You're going to a cardiac clinic to regain your strength.
Nikki: And it's not like you're at death's door, thank God.
Victor: (Sighs) The doctor said that the time after the transplant is very crucial, so... (Inhales sharply) And I intend to live for a long time.
Nikki: So shall we go to Newman and tell the kids?
Victor: Come here. It feels so good...
Victor: And so right. Hmm? Why don't you go ahead? There's some things I have to do. I'll join you there.
Nick: Just another beautiful day in the neighborhood, isn't it?
Victoria: What's got you going?
Nick: Well, for starters, Billy Abbott. It's yet another punk attacking Dad in print.
Adam: I understand why Billy lashed out.
Nick: I'll bet you do.
Adam: Listen, he thinks he's getting justice. He'll find out, it always comes back to bite you.
Billy: (Sucks in air through teeth) Oh, man. (Clears throat) Hey, can I help you, buddy? Well... (Clears throat) That's interesting. What's the story?
Man: Savaneur stockholders' meeting.
Billy: Oh, the one where Victoria Newman was trying to dodge the S.E.C. bullet?
Man: This dude Deacon Sharpe busts in singing her praises.
Billy: Doesn't look like hubby approves.
Man: (Chuckles) Hellstrom clocked the guy good-- said to stay away from his wife.
Billy: Hmm. All right. Does anybody else have these?
Man: I'm offering you an exclusive.
Billy: Well, I'll take it. (Clears throat) (Humming) And, uh, if you get anything else on the Newmans, you come to me first? Thank you. All right. Mr. Deacon Sharpe... who are you?
Kay: Ah, here we go.
Nikki: Thank you.
Kay: My, that's a beautiful ring.
Nikki: Oh. Thank you.
Kay: I don't think I've ever seen it before.
Nikki: It was a gift from Victor.
Kay: Well, does that mean that, uh...
Nikki: Oh, it's not an engagement ring. Don't get carried away.
Kay: Huh. Do you know, that--let me see that. That looks... almost like the ring that I gave you.
Nikki: I know. That was Victor's idea.
Nikki: You've been such a dear friend, he wanted to honor you. And, really, in a way, you've been the linchpin in our relationship this whole last year. I mean, you're the one we go to to talk about the other.
Kay: You see, for all of Victor's blustering and yours, I knew it wasn't over. There's far too much life and love between the two of you.
Victoria: Thank you, Simon. (Sighs) Yes, it is. All right, I'll speak to you later. (Sighs)
Nick: Good news?
Victoria: (Sighs) the S.E.C. thinks that their case is weak. They think it's all hearsay, no corroboration. (Sniffles) And now with Dad out of the hospital, the legal department is confident that it's a nonissue. So I was right to stay here and face this head-on instead of leaving the country.
Nick: I was just trying to protect you, Sis.
Victoria: Me or the company?
Victoria: Oh, I'm sorry. I was just worried after that fiasco yesterday in front of the S.E.C. investigator.
Nick: (Sighs) Yeah. So you ready to talk about why J.T. went after Deacon yet?
Victoria: Well, it was just a misunderstanding. I told you. It's really not worth getting into.
Nick: All right. Well, in case it ever is...
Victoria: (Clears throat) I'll know who to call. (Laughs) Luckily, the worst is over.
Billy: Mr. Sharpe.
Deacon: Mr. Abbott.
Billy: Wow, you know how I am?
Deacon: Mm-hmm. Well, I make it my, uh, business to know who all the players in town are, Billy. What can I do for you?
Billy: Um, do you mind if I, uh...
Deacon: No, please, sit down.
Deacon: Potato chip?
Billy: Please. I was hoping, uh, you could help me out with this.
Billy: Care to explain this?
Deacon: (Sighs) Well, looks to me like, uh, he was a little confused.
Billy: He was confused?
Billy: The guy popped you one, he tells you to stay away from his wife. What's he confused about?
Deacon: I got nothing to say.
Billy: Well, set me straight. Come on.
Deacon: Like I said, I can't help you. I got nothing to say.
Billy: Oh. Well, I understand. And that's okay, because I'm pretty sure these pictures say it all.
Deacon: Enjoy. (Scoffs)
Ashley: Why did you follow me, Jack?
Jack: Why did you take off like that? Katherine has to see the Abbotts as a united front. We have to regain her confidence in us.
Ashley: All right, time-out. You--you might as well hear it. I've changed my mind. I'm not coming back to Jabot.
Ashley: Yeah. I'm devoting myself to Abby and Faith. They need me, especially now that Victor's leaving Genoa City.
Jack: Victor's leaving Genoa City?
Victor: My darling Faith, you came into the world when I and a lot of people around me needed to be reminded how joyous life can be. Your birth has given many of us such joy. I'm leaving Genoa City for a while to focus on my health. I don't know when I'll be back. But I promise you, I'll be back stronger than ever. Now you have not had a chance to get to know me the way your brothers and sisters have. And you will hear stories about me. But before you do, I want to make sure that you hear them from me in my own words. There's some people who will say that I was not a good man. And there's some things I've done that you may question, may not understand. So let me tell you my version of things.
Kay: I like to think of myself as an astute judge of character. Now what in the hell is really going on between you and Victor?
Nikki: What do you mean?
Kay: "What do I mean"? You--I-I mean, I've never seen you look as loose and happy in years.
Nikki: (Laughs) "Loose and happy"? Well... I don't mean to be evasive, but Victor and I are going to be making an announcement to the family in a little while.
Kay: Oh, I understand. You, um, want to tell the children first.
Nikki: Oh, well, we consider you family. Come with me. Then you can be with us when we talk to the kids.
Kay: Wouldn't miss it. I can't wait to hear what you and Victor have to say.
Victor: I was born into a very poor family. And my father left when I was very young, and my mother put me in an orphanage when I was 7 years old. I hated that place, to be honest with you. But she had no choice. She was that poor. So when I was a teenager, I just-- one day, I up and left, never to come back to that orphanage. And I started a new life... and I gave myself a new name-- "Victor" because I promised myself I'd be victorious in anything I ever did, and "Newman" because, well, I had become a new man now. When I came to Genoa City, I already had become a success, and that's when I was asked to run someone else's company.
Kay: Now if anyone should question you, uh, you have my agreement right here in writing.
Victor: Mrs. Thurston, you really didn't need to do this. Besides, that is not legally binding without a witness.
Kay: Maybe so, but, uh, it makes me feel better about it. Lately, I seem to, uh, forget what I promise people. And, uh, this time, I want to back up my word.
Victor: And you do believe that the company needs protection?
Kay: If you say so. You're a clever man, and, uh, and there's no reason not to trust you.
Victor: From there, I built my own empire. I did what I had to do, and my heart led me many places.
Rick: Newman, you're finished!
Nikki: Victor! Victor! No! No! No, Victor. Victor. Victor. Are you...
Victor: And some people called me ruthless, a monster. There are no women around to seduce, are there? No Julia to take advantage of. Her needs, you see, are taken care of by me now. (Laughs) I'm sure that you're especially glad to hear about that.
Michael: (Growling) I'll kill you, Newman! I'll kill you!
Victor: And I've done things I'm not proud of.
Jack: Hey, I've been thinking.
Jack: How about we compromise? How about you work part-time?
Jack: We can arrange for you to work out of the house.
Ashley: Maybe some time in the future, but not now. I have a lot to make up for with Abby. I haven't been such a great mom to her, Jack.
Jack: Wait, that's not true.
Ashley: Yes, it is true. I mean, I was practically out of my mind during the pregnancy, and she had just lost Brad. I really wasn't there for her-- now Colleen. I mean, the divorce. That's a lot for a girl her age to handle. And she knows that Victor's not coming back to the ranch, but once she learns that he's actually gonna leave the country...
Jack: W-well, look, you do know that no matter what happens, Billy and I will be there for her.
Ashley: Right. Like you were when you attacked her father in "Restless Style"?
Jack: Maybe we went too far. But, you know, that door swings both ways. I can't count the number of times Victor's come after me.
Victor: And you may hear all kinds of rumors regarding my feud with the Abbott family. Let me set the record straight. I have nothing but respect for your grandfather John Abbott. He was a good man. And I will always love your mother. But as far as your Uncle Jack is concerned, that's a different story. Will you finally get it through your head, Jack, that I was asked by your sister, a high officer of this company to help her save this company from going bankrupt? I'm here to do that job, whether you like it or not. And I'm gonna sit in the chair that you're sitting in right now. I like it. I want you out of it, and I want me in it.
Jack: You like this chair? You want this chair? Have a seat on me.
Victor: The business world is wising up as to who you are-- deceptive, contemptible and untrustworthy. Doors already are beginning to close for you. Oh, you think you have won. You think you have won? You don't begin to understand the power of Victor Newman. I will crush you!
Jack: God, what you have done to my life... what you have done to my life. I'm not just talking about a baby now. I'm talking about my wife. I'm talking about my family, my sister, my father. I'm talking Jabot. I'm talking everything you've done to me and my family.
Victor: Jack, I'm telling you, it was an accident! How often do I have to tell you that I'm sorry? I am deeply sorry about what happened. The last thing I wanted to happen is for me to be responsible for the loss of your child, you understand that?
Jack: All I know if my son is dead. He's dead! Because of you.
Victor: Listen, don't you do anything you don't re--don't do that!
Victor: (Breathing heavily) Help... help... (Breathing heavily) Help. Help. Help. Help. Help. As misguided as your uncle may be, he and I are similar in our desire to protect our family and those we love.
Billy: Oh, hi. Excuse me. Um, do you normally work this floor?
Woman: Oh, yes, Sir. It's my section.
Billy: Great. Do you also clean Deacon Sharpe's room?
Woman: I'm not supposed to talk about the guests.
Billy: Oh. Yeah, I-I see. I understand. It's just, you know, I'm supposed to find the lady that cleans his room, and--and I was supposed to give her a tip, but if I can't find her, I-I don't know what I'm gonna do, you know?
Woman: I clean Mr. Sharpe's room.
Billy: Um, well, have you ever seen her?
Woman: I really shouldn't say.
Billy: Oh, really? Well, maybe if you look close and, um, thought about it really hard, does she look familiar to you?
Woman: I've seen her come and go from Mr. Sharpe's rom.
Billy: Well, I'll tell you what-- you have a nice day, because you certainly made mine. Thank you.
Victoria: And legal assured me that the S.E.C. will drop the case.
Nikki: Oh, that's wonderful, Sweetheart.
Victoria: I know, Mom. (Sighs) Trust me, it is such a load off my mind.
Nikki: And mine.
Nick: Hey, Mom. What are you doing here?
Nikki: Hey. I'm meeting your father.
Nick: Uh-huh. Come on. Pay up.
Victoria: I'll write you a check.
Nick: No, you said that last time and you never paid me.
Victoria: That's not true.
Nick: We had a bet. I knew Dad couldn't stay away from work. Vick thought he wouldn't be back until next week.
Nikki: It's not what you think.
Victoria: Then what is it?
Nikki: Your father and I want to talk to you together.
Victor: People will sidle up to you and tell you what you want to hear because you're a Newman. Now real friends are very hard to come by, but they're the only ones who will tell you the truth.
Neil: You want the truth? Nicholas is totally out of control. He's not listening to or taking advice from the many people that helped make your company what it is today.
Neil: There's a lot of talent in that building.
Victor: Yeah. I recruited most of them.
Neil: You see, Nick is too busy exercising his authority over everyone. He's carrying on the tradition of toughness at the top. The trouble is, he thinks he's you, and he's not. He doesn't have your experience or your savvy. (Sighs) Hey, Victor, I strongly suggest that you--you rein him in.
Victor: Are you telling me that you're planning a duel right here in Genoa City?
Douglas: An affair of honor involving the woman I love.
Victor: And who is the man?
Douglas: Brock Reynolds' stepfather, Derek Thurston.
Victor: The new executive of the Chancellor company?
Victor: And the lady?
Douglas: His wife, Katherine Chancellor Thurston. Would you consider acting as my second, Newman?
Victor: You know, I'm sort of intrigued by the idea. I mean, a man willing to face death for a woman he cares about-- it sort of appeals to me.
Douglas: Of course, he may refuse to fight me.
Victor: Well, then, you'll have won by default, won't you?
Douglas: And Katherine will see Derek for what he really is.
Kay: You of all people should know who I am. What proof do you need?
Victor: Where did you last see me?
Kay: Right here, right in this very room. It was after Sabrina died. Nikki asked me to stop by, and I did. You hardly said a word, so I left, and I was worried sick. But now that I see you're back to your ornery self...
Kay: I couldn't be happier.
Victor: No one ever had the guts to talk to me the way you do.
Victor: I'm so happy you're back. Hold your friends close and your family closer. There's no greater treasure in my life than you and your brothers and sisters.
Nikki: Would you like to hold her? Here, Sweetheart. (Sniffles) (Sniffles) (Whispers) Yes.
Victor: What a beautiful boy. Absolutely amazing how fragile, how tiny. And to think that that's part of me.
Adam: (Coos) (Coos)
Victor: It's been so long since I've... (Sniffles) Held a newborn in my arms, huh? It's a long time. Yeah. (Sniffles) you're my little boy. You're my little boy.
Victor: It's hard to imagine that I'm a father again, isn't it, hmm? Sweetheart, I don't know what you're talking about.
Abby: It's what Mommy said.
Victor: Oh. What exactly did you hear her say?
Abby: She said you're my daddy.
Abby: Colleen said that you hated my dad. Is that true?
Victor: Sweetheart, I didn't hate Bradley, all right?
Abby: I'll be in my room. (Sighs)
Victor: Look, for your information, this is not just a fling, all right?
Victoria: Uh, it's been three weeks. How can you possibly know what it is?
Victor: Sweetheart, don't you think you're using a double standard? You're allowing your mother to flaunt her relationship with this character that she's with. Why don't you allow me to do the same thing?
Victoria: (Sighs) Why don't you just do what you want, Dad? You always do.
Adam: You know, this is just like you to jerk me around and push me away. Hey, I'm your black sheep son.
Victor: What do you think I'm gonna do? Hand over this company that I've built from the ground up to a sniveling, snot-nosed, ungrateful son? Is that what you think I'm gonna do?
Nick: Well, I guess that tells me how you really feel about me.
Victor: You betrayed me. You betrayed your own father. And while it is true that no one can hurt you more deeply than family, no one can bring you greater happiness.
Victoria: It fits. (Laughs)
Victor: It look wonderful, my sweetheart. It's beautiful. (Laughs)
Victoria: You know, Dad, when I was little, I always dreamed of getting married in a dress just like this.
Victor: You did?
Victor: Well, now your dream is coming true, okay?
Ashley: Well, hi.
Abby: Hi. It's a horsey.
Victor: Whoa. What a beautiful horsey. You made that?
Abby: I made it for you, Victor.
Victor: You did? Wow.
Victor: That's nice. Look at that. You have talent.
Victor: You know where I'm gonna put it?
Victor: Right here on my desk. Right here.
Victor: My boy.
Nick: Hey, Dad.
Victor: Great to see you.
Nick: You know we had imagined the worst.
Victor: I love you, my boy.
Nick: I love you, too, Dad.
Adam: Yeah, but I'm not ready to let you go.
(Heart monitor beeping)
Adam: And I want to be a good son.
Victor: You already are. And always remember, my sweet Faith, family above all. And I've been very fortunate to have loved some incredible women, including your mother.
Ashley: Do you know how much I cherish these times that we have together, Victor?
Victor: No more than I do.
Ashley: I don't know. Do you think that there's ever been two people in this whole wide world that have ever been as happy as we are together?
Victor: I doubt it.
Ashley: I love you so much.
Victor: This is so beautiful. It's overwhelmingly beautiful. I'm so happy right now. My darling, I'm so happy right now.
Hope: I'm glad.
(Cell phone rings)
Nikki: Hi. Nicholas and Victoria are here, and Adam just arrived. You on your way?
Victor: I'll be there shortly.
Nikki: Looking forward to it.
Victor: Me, too.
Victor: Oh, how lovely you are.
Nikki: I--d-don't. Don't stop, please. Please, don't stop kissing me.
Victor: You know, this has all been a lie. I've been wanting you ever since I first saw you.
Nikki: Yes, I know. I know.
Victor: And if I kiss you again, it can't stop there. It can't. I've known great happiness. I've known great pain.
Victor: (Sighs) But all those experiences have helped me become the man that I am today.
Victor: And I want you to learn from your experiences, and you will. Now just a word of advice-- don't ever quit because you failed, and don't ever close your heart because you're hurt. Pursue your dreams. Stand your ground. But let me explain something to you, and listen very carefully. Anyone who crosses me-- I don't give a damn if it's my children or you-- will have a heavy price to pay. You remember that. Whether I live another three months or 30 years, the world will know that Victor Newman was here. Keep me in your heart... and know that no matter what, I love you. I will always love you, my beautiful Faith.
Billy: (Thinking) Perhaps daddy's little girl, the squeaky-clean Victoria Newman, is not as "Snow white" as we think. A source at the Genoa City Athletic Club confirmed the married Mrs. Hellstrom was seen frequenting the room of a west-coast playboy Deacon Sharpe, which may explain the "Hell storm" her husband unleashed on Mr. Sharpe. The S.E.C. may be interested to know the white knight shareholder who delivered such a glowing endorsement of the Newman heiress may have been holding a lot more than her company's stock.
Jack: I wish there was something I could do to change your mind.
Ashley: Well, you can't, so you'd better accept it. I'm not coming back.
Jack: As much as I hate to hear those words, it's good to see you this confident again.
Ashley: Yeah, I know what you mean. And you know what else? Victor and I have two beautiful children together, and there's a part of me that will always care for him. But I will never, ever lose myself to someone again.
Nikki: Victor should be here any minute.
Adam: Is Dad retiring?
Kay: (Laughs) Victor? (Laughs) Not a chance.
Victoria: Well, he may want to restructure until he's fully recovered.
Nikki: You'll all know soon enough.
Nick: There's not a problem with the transplant, right?
Nikki: It's not bad news.
Victoria: Thank God. (Sighs) I don't think I can take any more bad news.
Victor: Well, thank you all for coming.
Victor: You, too, Katherine.
Nick: Well, we're all here, Dad. What's going on?
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Jack: Setting you up was one of the greatest joys of my life.
Victor: So you're fearless now that I'm leaving town?
Billy: (Humming) Hey--oh!
