Michael: Uh... (Sighs) I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it's quite possible that Ryder Callahan will be coming up with a viable alibi.

Daniel: Yeah, Kevin mentioned something about that earlier. Um, if he had one, though, wouldn't he have used it by now?

Michael: You'd think so, wouldn't you?

Daniel: So how worried should I be?

Michael: Well, if the D.A. loses his prime suspect...

Daniel: Then I'm back in the hot seat, right?

Michael: I wouldn't be surprised.

Daniel: Well, isn't there anything you can do?

Michael: Unfortunately, I'm the last person who can help you.

Daniel: 'Cause you're "Weasel boy's" attorney now, right?

Michael: Yeah, well, and if an alibi exists, it's my job to find it.

Amber: Excuse me one second. (Chuckles)

(Keys jingle)

Michael: Daniel, you still there?

Daniel: Yeah, I-I think someone's at my door.

Michael: Hang in there. Good-bye.

Michael: We need to talk about your case.

Ryder: I'm working.

Michael: Take a break.

Ryder: (Sighs) So what's up? (Sighs)

Michael: Need I remind you that your trial date has been set? Which means it's quite possible that you could be rotting in prison soon.

Ryder: That's a little harsh, dude.

Michael: Oh, harsh? No, "Harsh" would be your future cellmates in maximum security.

Ryder: Are you t-- trying to scare me?

Michael: You should be scared. You confessed to killing a man, and now you claim you didn't do it. You say you have an alibi, but you refuse to talk about it.

Ryder: I didn't kill anyone, Michael.

Michael: Then prove it, or spend the next 20 years to life kicking yourself for being an idiot.

Ryder: (Sighs)

Amber: I ran into your mom on the way up.

Daniel: Thanks for coming, Mom.

Phyllis: When you call, I come running. What?

Amber: Um, brownies. Daniel said they're your favorites.

Phyllis: Yeah. What's the occasion?

Daniel: Well, uh, Amber and I have set a wedding date.

Amber: We couldn't wait to share the news. (Giggles)

Phyllis: (Sighs) Y-you--you guys are-- are getting married?

Kay: Neil, that, uh, conference call with, uh, the new shipping company--

Neil: Conference ca-- oh, yeah, it's already handled.

Kay: Mm-hmm. And then the call that Jill's having with, uh, yeah, Randall Bismarck.

Neil: Randall Bismarck-- I explained to him that her grandson is in the hospital. He's gonna reschedule.

Kay: Hmm. Hard to believe, isn't it?

Neil: Hmm?

Kay: I mean Chance being stabbed.

Neil: Kay, he's gonna be fine.

Kay: Oh, well, then your-- your daughter, that poor darling, that horrendous infection. It--none of it makes sense. It's--

Neil: We almost lost her.

Kay: Oh, she pulled through, though. Thank God for that.

Neil: Yeah. Well, she still has to fight the cancer, and some of her decisions as of late... enough of my personal whining. Why don't we get back to business, huh?

Kay: Yeah. Yeah.

Neil: Okay?

Kay: All right, now where do we stand with, uh, the initial public offering of Chancellor Industry stocks?

Neil: Well, I looked into which of the investment banks will best suit our needs, and I'm gonna get some results very soon.

Kay: Good.

Neil: I also met with Mitchell Sherman, and the S.E.C. paperwork has been filed.

Kay: Now when will that news be made public?

Neil: Not right away, but you know what? The information's probably already leaked.

Kay: Do you remember when I told you Jack is suspicious?

Neil: Yeah.

Kay: Well, I was right. He asked point-blank when Chancellor Industries stocks will be open to the public. (Laughs)

Neil: And, uh, wh-what did you tell him?

Kay: Well, I didn't admit to it, but I'm--he knew.

Neil: Right. I wonder what his next move will be.

Kay: Knowing Jack? Oh, he'll do something sneaky, very... (Chuckles) Very sneaky. Oh, yes.

Adam: I wanted to let you know I'm back.

Nick: Was the trip a success?

Adam: Except for a mishap with a curb in D.C., counting perfume bottles and moisturizers isn't rocket science, Nick.

Nick: Okay, Adam. Well, check in with me when you get back to the office.

Adam: Will do, Chief.

Jack: Ahh, the joys of running a family business.

Nick: Hey, Jack.

Jack: I read the press release about Victoria resigning.

Nick: Yeah. Shocker, huh?

Jack: Yeah, it was. So that means the only Newmans at Newman are now you and your brother. I hope you're keeping him on a short leash.

Nick: (Sighs) Yeah, and he wouldn't even be working there if my dad hadn't insisted on it. I tell you, it drives me crazy that he still lives at the ranch.

Jack: Join the club there.

Ashley: Welcome back. What happened to you?

Adam: Oh, um, tried to break my fall. Broke my collarbone instead.

Ashley: I'm so sorry. It must be difficult for you to negotiate streets that you're not familiar with. What about a cane?

Adam: Uh, no.

Ashley: No?

Adam: Not until I absolutely have to.

Ashley: (Sighs)

Adam: So how are you? Everything all right?

Ashley: Pretty well. Oh, the baby's amazing, as usual.

Adam: How's Abby?

Ashley: Well, we're arguing again. She's barricaded herself in her room.

Adam: Well, she's having a difficult time. I know I'm not her favorite person, but, uh--

Ashley: Well, neither am I at the moment.

Adam: Well, if there's anything I can do...

Ashley: Thank you.

Adam: Listen, I gotta get, uh, changed, get to work. Nick is really excited to see me.

Ashley: Hey, Adam, could I talk to you a second about business?

Adam: Sure. Newman business?

Ashley: No, something entirely different.

Nick: Well, I get it that she doesn't want to uproot her girls.

Jack: Yeah, a lot of bad memories in that house.

Nick: You know, she seems like her old feisty self, though.

Jack: Yeah, I think this baby has made all the difference. But to still have Adam in her life-- I do not understand why she still has that loser around.

Nick: You know, it's like he figures out the right thing to say, and he's got 'em hooked.

Jack: I think you and I ought to both keep an eye on him. If you see anything that concerns you...

Nick: Yeah, I'll let you know, and vice versa.

Jack: Deal.

Ashley: I know they're not treating you very well at Newman.

Adam: Well, I just need to prove myself.

Ashley: Well, my fear is that no matter how hard you work, Nick's never gonna change his opinion of you. He's never gonna give you a real chance.

Adam: Well, I hope that's not true.

Ashley: You've got such a strong, solid background in business, and you're so incredibly smart.

Adam: I just need somebody to believe in me, that's all.

Ashley: I believe in you.

Adam: That is the nicest thing anyone has said to me in months.

Ashley: Well, it's true. You know that business thing I talked about? I can't really get into any details, but if it pans out, I'm hoping it's something you and I can work on together.

Ryder: Kevin said you can work miracles.

Michael: Yeah, well, not when my client fights me every step of the way.

Ryder: You don't understand.

Michael: Yeah, sure I do. I think you're guilty, and you're lying about this alibi, or you're covering for someone. All right, look. (Sighs) If you want me to defend you, then work with me. Anything you tell me is in the vault. It's called attorney-client privilege.

Ryder: I can't.

Michael: You can't what?

Ryder: I didn't-- I didn't do it, Michael, but I-- I can't prove it, so I'm screwed.

Michael: So you're just gonna give up? All right. (Sighs) Where were you the night of the murder?

Ryder: Illinois.

Michael: Specifics.

Ryder: I drove to Chicago for the day. I drove back that night.

Michael: Can anyone verify this?

Ryder: No.

Michael: Did you stop at a convenience store? Did you get gas? Are there any receipts?

Ryder: No. I threw them out.

Michael: Then I'm gonna need the make and model of your car and your license plate.

Ryder: You're wasting your time, Michael.

Michael: Just... let me do my job. Yeah. Hey, Dave. Michael Baldwin. I need you to run some plates. Yeah, I'm trying to find out if someone was where they claimed to have been on June 10th. (Drumming fingers on table)

Amber: Okay. So I know we have butted heads in the past, but I really am hoping this wedding's gonna bring us closer now that we're gonna be family.

Phyllis: When is this wedding happening?

Daniel: June.

Amber: (Giggles) I have put a hold on every wedding book at Trumble's. I want it to be fabulous.

Daniel: She's actually got some really good ideas.

Amber: Yeah.

Daniel: Why don't you go ahead? Show her.

Amber: Okay. Well, now first--listen.

Phyllis: D--no. No. I don't-- it just--I don't have to--

Daniel: Hear--hear her out.

Amber: Well, no, listen. Yeah. First, I hope you know how much I value your opinion, and this is a very important day for you, too, which is why I started thinking of ideas of what kind of dress I'm gonna--

Phyllis: I, uh, no, I-I-- it's not necessary.

Daniel: Mom. Mom. Mom.

Phyllis: It's not--I don't-- I don't need to see those. I-I--

Daniel: It's gonna be fun.

Amber: It's--yeah. It's--yeah. Okay, look, I'm not thinking of anything matronly, okay? I-I'm thinking of something you know, kind of fitted, hip, you know, modern, something to show off that awesome bod of yours, you know? Something kind of like this... like, isn't that totally you?

Phyllis: Totally.

Amber: Yeah, and I was thinking, you know, Summer could be the flower girl. She'd be so cute.

(Cell phone rings)

Amber: Oh, excuse me. One second. Hold on. Hello? Oh, hey, Mrs. C. no, no, I didn't forget. Um, I just assumed that you'd be really busy with Chance. How is he? Oh, great. Great. Um, listen, I-I'm kind of tied up right now--

Phyllis: Oh, no, no, no. Go ahead. Go. Go. Go. Go. We have plenty to time, uh, uh, to discuss it. It's June. June is when it's happening. June.

Amber: (Sighs) Um, on second thought, I'm on my way. Okay. Bye. (Sighs) Thank you for being so understanding. Here, um, you can-- you can look at this.

Phyllis: (Stammers)

Amber: Okay, well, you know, um, its there, right there, if you want to, you know, look at it. (Chuckles) Love you.

Daniel: Bye.

Amber: You guys have fun.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Amber: This is gonna be fun.

Daniel: We will. (Chuckles)

Amber: (Giggles)

(Door closes)

Phyllis: Are you out of your mind? Are you out of your mind? Are you out of your mind?

Daniel: (Sighs)

Phyllis: Are you?

Daniel: (Chuckles)

Phyllis: You were just broken up a few weeks ago. What are you doing?

Daniel: Well, I knew this was coming. Yeah. No, you knew that we got back together.

Phyllis: Yeah, but a marriage-- I wasn't really prepared for that, Daniel, and I don't think you are, either.

Daniel: That's not entirely true.

Phyllis: That is entirely true. I was watching you when she was talking, and you're rattled. Something has you rattled. I'm not leaving until you tell me what it is.

Daniel: I'm sure you'll be happy to hear this, but I'm not sure there's gonna be a wedding.

Phyllis: (Sighs) Thank you. Oh, listen, Sweetheart. Sweetheart, listen. It is okay if you're not certain about your feelings for Amber. It's fine.

Daniel: I want to marry Amber more than anything.

Phyllis: (Sighs)

Daniel: I just don't know if I'm gonna be available in June.

Phyllis: What are you talking about?

Daniel: Turns out that Ryder might have an alibi for the night that Elkins was shot in the alley.

Phyllis: Why hasn't he told the authorities?

Daniel: I don't know, but if he can prove that he didn't do it, then the spotlight's back on me.

Phyllis: No, no, no, no. No, no, no, no, I-I-I-- I thought this was behind you.

Daniel: Yeah, I thought this was behind me, too. Now Amber--she wants this wedding more than anything. How am I gonna tell her that it might not happen?

Deacon: Hey, Amber. It's, um, it's good to see you.

Amber: Oh, yeah, it's so good to see you, too.

Deacon: Heard you got engaged.

Amber: You told me to go back to Daniel and be happy.

Deacon: Are you?

Amber: I'm over the moon.

Deacon: That's good. I'm--I'm happy for you.

Amber: Yeah, you know, I really can't talk, Deacon. I'm meeting someone, and I'm late.

Deacon: (Sighs)

Amber: Mrs. C. I'm sorry about the mix-up. Mwah!

Kay: Oh, Darling, that's fine.

Amber: (Sighs)

Kay: My, you are positively glowing.

Amber: (Chuckles) My jaw hurts so much from smiling.

Kay: I bet. Well, I guess I don't have to ask how you are.

Amber: I am marrying the man of my dreams. You know, life couldn't be any better. (Chuckles)

(Cell phone rings)

Jack: Hey, I was hoping we could talk a little more about my business proposal. Call me.

Neil: Well, one of my favorite people-- Ashley.

Ashley: Hi.

Neil: That's a nice surprise.

Ashley: Well, I hope it's a good one.

Neil: Oh, definitely. Mm! What can I do for you?

Ashley: Well, just 'cause I'm a stay-at-home mom doesn't mean I don't want to keep tabs on things.

Neil: (Chuckles) Your input is always welcome.

Ashley: So how are things for you running Chancellor Industries?

Neil: To be honest with you, I feel like king of the world.

Ashley: I bet you do. It's not easy getting out from under Victor's shadow.

Neil: Well, now that I have, the freedom is intoxicating.

Ashley: See, I always knew you were "Head honcho" material.

Neil: Considering the challenges that are facing, uh, Chancellor Industries, let's hope so.

Ashley: Mm. What kind of challenges?

Neil: Well, I don't-- I don't want to bore you with those details.

Ashley: I heard rumblings of big doings at C.I.

Neil: Did you now?

Ashley: Yeah.

Neil: Don't believe everything you hear.

Ashley: Really? So it's not true?

Neil: Is there something in particular that I can help you with?

Ashley: Yeah. I was hoping I could see the, um, Jabot marketing strategy now that it's been approved by Chancellor.

Neil: Ashley, I could've e-mailed that to you.

Ashley: And then I would have missed out on seeing your handsome face.

Neil: (Chuckles)

Nick: (Sighs) Adam, sit down. I see the curb got the better of you.

Adam: I'll be fine. (Sighs) Sounds like I missed a lot while I was gone.

Nick: Are you talking about Victoria moving to New York with J.T.?

Adam: And also your decision to pay some of the Cayman bank money back to the people who lost their shirts.

Nick: It was the right thing to do.

Adam: Mm. Well, now with Victoria gone from Newman, I'm sure you're overwhelmed.

Nick: What are you getting at?

Adam: I'd be glad to pitch in, take over some of her projects.

Nick: Yeah, that's not gonna happen. But there is something you can help me with.

(Knock on door)

Adam: What's that?

Michael: Adam, that aerobics class not working out for you?

Adam: You were saying?

Nick: (Sighs) The person who allegedly turned Victoria in to the S.E.C. is back from vacation.

Adam: Oh?

Nick: And since you were the one who traced the call back to her cell phone, I thought you'd like to be here when we get her side of the story. What is this?

Michael: Here's the e-mails, the copies of everything we took from her computer. I checked for anything that might be incriminating, but the rest of them-- pretty--pretty mundane.

[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.


Michael: Then again, it's all circumstantial. We don't know who they... Thank you.

Amber: So what's up? You seem a little stressed, Mrs. C.

Kay: Well, you know, with everything going on at Chancellor, and then, of course, Chance's near tragedy...

Amber: (Sighs) Oh, someone up there was watching over him.

Kay: (Chuckles) So how are, um, all your wedding plans going, young lady?

Amber: Well, we told Daniel's mother.

Kay: Mm-hmm. And?

Amber: And she didn't go running and screaming from the room.

Kay: That's a plus.

Amber: Yeah.

Kay: (Chuckles)

Amber: I mean, seriously, though, she's--she's actually making an effort.

Kay: Well, she's probably beginning to see the woman that Daniel and I have grown to love.

Amber: I can't thank you enough. I mean, you're letting me have my dream fairy-tale wedding at your mansion. It's--wow.

Kay: You do understand that is my pleasure?

Amber: You know, next to Daniel, um, you're the closest thing to family I have.

Kay: And you'll always, always, always be part of my family.

Amber: (Chuckles) I can hardly believe how much my life has changed.

Kay: Well, I know you had a miserable childhood.

Amber: Yeah. Growing up in Death Valley was, um, absolutely horrible. I just couldn't wait to get out of there.

Kay: (Sighs) Now look at you. You're marrying the love of your life.

Amber: (Chuckles) Yeah. I just, um, I just keep thinking about all the mistakes I've made, you know? And all the people I hurt. I hurt them because I wanted more. I wanted more possessions, more money, more security, more love.

Kay: Amber, Amber, Amber. We have all done things that we are not necessarily proud of.

Amber: I'm just so grateful to have a second chance. (Chuckles) And this time, I'm gonna do it right.

Kay: (Laughs)

Amber: (Laughs)

Daniel: You know, all along, Sharpe's been saying that he could get Ryder to recant, that he's got proof that the guy didn't do it.

Phyllis: What does Ryder say?

Daniel: I don't know. Ryder doesn't say much of anything.

Phyllis: It could have been a lie, a way to control you.

Daniel: Or maybe there's a reason Ryder waited this long to get himself off the hook.

Phyllis: Waiting for what?

Daniel: I don't know.

Phyllis: This is really strange. Well, he's not hassling Amber still, is he?

Daniel: Who, Deacon? No. He--he said that he's letting Amber go, you know? He's done manipulating us.

Phyllis: So, uh, would he say that if it wasn't true?

Daniel: Maybe it's all part of his massive plan to mess with my head, you know? And any minute, I'm gonna find out that I've been totally played.

Ryder: Have you heard from my mother?

Deacon: No.

Ryder: Yeah, well, neither have I, and it's freaking me out.

Deacon: Well, you ask me, you ought to consider yourself lucky.

Ryder: I tried her phone today. I got some stupid message that said it's not in service anymore.

Deacon: Well, what do you want me to do about it?

Ryder: You were supposed to sell the painting for 50 mil, Deacon. You remember that? You were supposed to get me out of jail and then get me out of the country, preferably to someplace that didn't have an extradition treaty. But you screwed that up royally, didn't you?

Deacon: Yeah, thanks for reminding me, pal.

Ryder: So what now, Deacon? Huh? What's plan "B"?

Deacon: You seem to be forgetting the fact that I'm not the one calling the shots on this little dog and pony show.

Ryder: My mom-- she didn't, uh, she didn't tell you anything about this alibi I supposedly have? (Liquid pours)

Deacon: Nope. Sorry.

Ryder: So I've got zip, which means I might be going down for a crime I didn't even commit.

Nick: Did you or didn't you call the Securities and Exchange Commission regarding my father's health and accuse my sister of purposely misleading the stockholders?

Woman: I've been a loyal employee for over ten years.

Adam: Over the past several months, you've made it no secret that you think the accounting department's been mismanaged. You've been vehemently opposed to budget cuts, concerned about your job loss potential.

Michael: We can confirm all this. While you were on vacation, we took statements from other employees. We also have copies of e-mails sent from your office computer.

Nick: The call was traced to your company cell phone. We have the records.

Woman: Anyone could have borrowed it.

Michael: Was your phone missing at any point?

Woman: Not to my knowledge, no.

Michael: (Inhales deeply) Do you know of anyone who may have a grudge against you?

Nick: It's an unfortunate situation, but I have no recourse but to take action.

Woman: You're firing me?

Nick: No. I'm not firing you, but I am transferring you to our satellite division in Milwaukee.

Woman: I swear to you, I didn't make any call. (Sighs)

Nick: (Sighs) Everything points to her, but I don't know.

Michael: She seems pretty adamant that she didn't do it.

Adam: Well, given the information that we have, I think you did the right thing, Nick.

Nick: Its funny how all of a sudden, you're very supportive of all my decisions. Why is that?

Adam: I told you why-- because Cynthia Nash is the most likely culprit.

Nick: Is she?

Adam: What are you suggesting, Nick?

Nick: I'm telling you right now, if I ever find out that you were behind this call, if you were the one who triggered this investigation--

Adam: You won't, because I wasn't. I've done nothing but try and help you since I've been back at Newman.

(Cell phone rings)

Michael: I'm sorry. Nick, if you don't need me for anything else...

Nick: No. Thanks for coming by, Michael.

Michael: Sure. Yes? Hello? Have you found anything on Ryder Callahan?

Deacon: Ryder, you need to calm down.

Ryder: That's easy for you to say. You're not the one facing a murder rap here!

Deacon: Panicking is not gonna solve your problems.

Ryder: The only one who can solve my problems is my mother, so next time you see her, you tell her I need her help now!

Deacon: Sorry, pal, no can do.

Ryder: I hope you're kidding.

Deacon: Hey, you knew this was risky when you signed on.

Ryder: Not as risky as you saying no to "Mommy dearest." You'd do well to remember that.

Deacon: You know what? I told you I'm done with your old lady and all her crazy plots.

Ryder: So, what, you're not going after the Baldwins now, either?

Deacon: You're damn right I'm not!

Ryder: First, you screw up the Terroni. Then you turn your back on my mom. What about your kid?

Deacon: Hey, listen to me. I put my son somewhere safe, somewhere where that bitch can never threaten him again!

Ryder: If you think this is the end of it, you're dead-wrong.

Deacon: Unlike you, I can take care of myself. You enjoy your freedom, pal, while it lasts.

Ryder: Damn it, Deacon! (Breathing heavily)

Phyllis: If Ryder is convicted, that's it. It's over, and the police will never bother you again.

Daniel: And if he's not? What, he's gonna go free? A jury's gonna find me guilty, and then I spend, what? The next who knows how many decades behind bars.

Phyllis: No. No, that's not gonna happen. I don't care about Ryder or Deacon. I don't care about them. You didn't do this. You didn't kill someone.

Daniel: And the judge is just gonna take your word for it?

Phyllis: Yeah, he is. If Ryder isn't the killer, they're gonna reopen the investigation and find out who really did it.

Daniel: Well, I really hope you're right.

Phyllis: Well, I am right. I am right. You sit down. Sit down.

Daniel: (Sighs)

Phyllis: (Sighs) Hey, in the meantime, I'm gonna do whatever I can to help you out. Do you understand that?

Daniel: Thank you.

Phyllis: You're welcome. Come clean with Amber.

Daniel: (Laughs)

Phyllis: Yes.

Daniel: No. No. No. Why? That's just gonna eat her up inside. You know, mentioning Deacon's name makes her sick. She almost married that idiot just to protect me, remember?

Phyllis: Yeah, I remember.

Daniel: Yeah, and you still hate her.

Phyllis: I don't hate her, Daniel. I-I-- she's not--I do not hate her. She is not a match for you.

Daniel: (Scoffs)

Phyllis: She is not the perfect match for my son, okay? I-I-- (sighs) But I know you love her.

Daniel: I do love her. I do.

Phyllis: And keeping secrets is the first thing to ruin a relationship.

Daniel: Okay, well, you're right, but I'm not telling her.

Phyllis: You gotta tell her. You've gotta tell her. You keep your nose clean on this, okay? Listen, a-a-- a marriage is built on trust, and if you don't have that, it's just a house of cards.

Kay: So, Ashley, how is that precious daughter of yours?

Ashley: Um, well, they're both amazing. The little one is just getting bigger and bigger every day.

Kay: Ah.

Neil: Isn't that funny? Babies tend to do that, don't they?

Kay: (Laughs)

Ashley: (Laughs) I know they do. I'm so happy you're here. I was wondering something. Have you heard from Victor or Nikki since they left for Belgium?

Kay: Well, haven't you?

Ashley: Just a couple brief e-mails to Abby. That's about it.

Kay: Well, I've-- I've spoken with Nikki several times...

Ashley: Yeah?

Kay: And apparently, Victor is doing very well during his rehabilitation.

Ashley: Oh, that's good news. Thank you for letting me know.

Kay: Mm-hmm.

Ashley: I appreciate it. You know, I-I-I know it could be awkward because of your friendship with him, and I don't want that to happen.

Kay: Hey, hey, hey. Just a moment. You and I are friends. Don't you ever, ever forget that.

Jack: Sorry to hold things up. Ash...

Ashley: Hey.

Jack: What are you doing here? Asked me to try out some of their cars it’s been a while since I've walked the hallowed halls of Jabot Cosmetics.

Neil: How you doing, Jack? Good to see you. It seems that your sister wants a peek at the new marketing strategy for Jabot.

Ashley: Hmm.

Jack: Well, I've already seen it myself, but I'd love to get some input from you if I could.

Ashley: Mm-hmm.

Kay: Um, Ashley, I know your--your daughters are your top priority, but, uh, don't you ever be a stranger around here.

Ashley: I won't. I promise.

Daniel: Have a nice lunch?

Amber: Yeah. Mrs. C. is super excited for us. So, uh, I bet your mom had, uh, had a lot to say about our wedding, huh?

Daniel: Yeah. She had a few thoughts on the subject.

Amber: Look, I know she thinks I'm not good enough for you. But once she realizes how crazy I am for you...

Amber: What?

Daniel: (Sighs) Look, I know you are all caught up in these plans, and I really don't want to spoil it for you. But I do have something that I gotta tell you.

(Knock on door)

Deacon: You know what? I told you that I--

Phyllis: Remember me?

Deacon: Yeah. How could I forget? Listen, if you're gonna hit me, can you try this side?

Phyllis: I thought I told you to stay away from my son.

Deacon: H-hang on a second. Chill out. I've had nothing to do with Daniel or Amber since you went mike Tyson on me.

Phyllis: Oh, that's bull. That's bull. You systematically set out to ruin my son's life, and now I hear you want to do it again, and I'm here to tell you that's a big mistake. Do you understand that? Too bad.

Deacon: Whatever happened with "Danny boy," I got nothing to do with it.

Phyllis: A-actually, I know that's a lie, because there's a kid named Ryder going around talking about an alibi, and I know that you're the one who's holding the strings.

Deacon: (Chuckles) Yeah. Boy, are you wrong.

Phyllis: Don't think there's anything I won't do to protect my son.

Deacon: Your son? What about my son? Yeah, that's right. I'm not the one calling the shots. They threatened to hurt my kid.

Phyllis: Where is your kid?

Deacon: He's tucked away safely so I don't have to do their dirty work. You know, I-I-I'm sorry I ever even got involved with this in the first place.

Phyllis: That's such a lie. You got involved with this because of $50 million...

Deacon: No, you don't--

Phyllis: And Amber, not because of some threat or some imaginary son.

Deacon: He is not imaginary.

Phyllis: If that's true, why are you holding back on the information...?

Deacon: Be--

Phyllis: About what happened the night of the murder? Why are you doing that?

Deacon: Be--it's complicated.

Phyllis: Why? Why? It's not complicated! You have information that could clear my son, and you're holding back on it. So you either go to the police--

Deacon: Or what? What?

Phyllis: Or you're going away to prison for a really long time. Do you understand that?

Deacon: (Sighs)

Michael: (Sighs) Well, I've got the evidence to back up your alibi.

Ryder: (Laughs) Are you serious? Wh-wh-what is it?

Michael: (Sighs) This is a red light photograph taken in Chicago. Corner of Ashland and division in Wicker Park.

Ryder: When was it taken?

Michael: A half-hour before the murder.

Ryder: (Sighs)

Michael: There's no way you could have gotten back to Genoa City in time.

Ryder: Oh, man. I've never been so happy to get busted running a red light. (Chuckles)

Michael: Uh, if you'll notice, you're not alone. There's a person in the passenger seat. Is this the person you've been protecting?

Ryder: Look, what does it matter? You got the evidence you need to get me off the hook, didn't you?

Michael: Yes.

Ryder: Look, I need to get back to work. Thanks for saving my ass.

Michael: (Sighs)

Amber: You said you were okay with a huge wedding, but you're not, are you?

(Cell phone rings)

Daniel: (Sighs) Break it to me gently.

Michael: Uh, it looks like Ryder does have an airtight alibi.

Daniel: Yeah, of course he does.

Michael: Well, prepare yourself. The D.A. should start investigating you again soon.

Daniel: Yep. (Sighs) Okay, well, thanks for telling me.

Amber: Wh-wh-- what was that all about?

Daniel: Trust me, you don't want to know.

Amber: Daniel, you're scaring me. What is it?

Daniel: Look, Amber, I'm sorry, but I can't marry you.

Neil: Well, let me know first thing tomorrow. Appreciate it.

Kay: Coast clear?

Neil: Bye-bye. Jack and Ashley left a little while ago.

Kay: Uh-huh. Well, I'm sure I can guess why she was here. (Chuckles)

Neil: Yeah, to do a little fishing expedition on the I.P.O.

Kay: "Fishing." Well, then she didn't come straight out and ask?

Neil: Katherine, she couldn't have been any more obvious if she had brought a tackle box and pole.

Kay: Uh-huh. So then Jack shows up while she's here. (Chuckles)

Neil: Coincidence?

Kay: Oh, hardly. No, they're doing what the Abbotts do well... (Sighs) Circling, circling the wagons. (Chuckles)

Neil: They figure by teaming up, they can buy enough chancellor stock to regain control of Jabot.

Kay: But that will never happen.

Neil: (Laughs)

Jack: Order something expensive-- my treat.

Ashley: You don't have to buy me lunch, Jackie.

Jack: No, I want to.

Ashley: You're sure Jabot can survive without you that long?

Jack: I'll risk it.

Ashley: (Scoffs) When you're this nice to me, it makes me very suspicious.

Jack: I was just happy to see you with Katherine and Neil.

Ashley: Why?

Jack: Well, I hope it means you're coming around to the idea of us joining forces and making a play for control of Jabot.

Ashley: You're wrong.

Jack: Then why else were you there?

Ashley: Because I was just touching base with Katherine and Neil, Jackie.

Jack: That's all there was to it? You just had a sudden urge to go to your old stomping grounds?

Ashley: I haven't changed my mind about buying Chancellor stock. If you want Jabot back in the family, you're gonna have to do it without me.

Nick: I want you to proofread these reports.

Adam: Your computer doesn't have spell-check?

Nick: Just do it, Adam. You never know when there's going to be a pop quiz.

Adam: Sure, as soon as I get done cleaning the executive washroom.

Nick: The analysis breakdown that Victoria asked you to do for each of the 50 states--

Adam: I e-mailed that to you days ago.

Nick: Yeah, I got it, Adam, but it's in the wrong format, so you're gonna have to do it again.

Adam: Fine.

Nick: Must be frustrating doing all this grunt work. But the sad reality is, you're never going to be anything more than a glorified errand boy around here.

Adam: And you're telling me this because?

Nick: You know, you're actually doing a pretty decent job as junior vice president.

Adam: Well, a fifth grader could do the job, Nick.

Nick: Well, if I'm not challenging you enough, please, let me write you a recommendation.

Adam: Mm. Trying to get rid of me, Nick?

Nick: I hear the Valley View Corp's looking for a senior V.P.

Adam: You know, when I first graduated Harvard business school, I would have killed to have a job like that.

Nick: Hey, just say the word. I'll make a call and make it happen.

Adam: I think I will pass. So if there's nothing more, I'm gonna get ripping on those reports, and any other menial tasks you might throw my way.

Nick: You sure? It's a good opportunity for you.

Adam: I hate to disappoint you, brother, but you're stuck with me.

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

Billy: What's it gonna take for you guys to get this jerk out of our family?

Jill: We were just talking about Chance.

Kay: Oh, don't snow me. Now what really is going on?

Daniel: I'm not marrying you if there's a chance that I could go to jail!

Amber: You want to be alone? Fine! You have it!
