Lauren: Hi.

Michael: Hey, are we late?

Phyllis: Hey. Um, only if you wanted a cheese Danish.

Nick: Is it my fault there was only one left?

Phyllis: Two--there were two.

Michael: Oh.

Lauren: Gee, maybe my little friend from last night had dibs, huh?

Nick: Ooh.

Michael: No, don't. Don't.

Lauren: Come on.

Michael: Don't. Look, sending someone a live rat as a gift-- I'm having a hard time finding that funny.

Nick: On to more cheerful topics?

Phyllis: Yes. All in favor, say, "Aye." Aye.

Lauren: Mm.

Michael: (Sighs) Well, you said on the phone you have something for me. .

Nick: Yeah, here you go. Checks for your mother and Jeff Bardwell.

Michael: Oh, from the Cayman bank crash. That was quick.

Nick: Once I decided to settle with the depositors who didn't get out in time...

Michael: Well, no point in dragging it out.

Lauren: Yeah. It's a smart way to go.

Nick: Well, as your husband mentioned to me, it's a P.R. win. Plus litigation costs a fortune, and... (Sighs) Our cash reserves may take a hit now, but in the end, it's good.

Phyllis: Yeah, you can't buy that kind of goodwill.

Michael: Oh, I think you just did.

Gloria: (Sighs)

Kevin: You're welcome. Try not to be so peppy there, kids.

Gloria: (Chuckles)

Jeff: Ooh, is that your idea of a morale booster?

Gloria: When Nick Newman hands over that big, fat check, this apron's comin' off for good. (Chuckles)

Kevin: Well, if you two really are gonna bail, you've gotta give me fair warning.

Gloria: Mm. Consider yourself warned.

Adam: I don't know which was worse-- the pain of tripping into that curb or the embarrassment.

Sharon: Well, that's a great way to get sympathy.

Adam: From anyone in particular?

Sharon: Maybe.

Adam: So is the coast clear?

Sharon: Oh, I don't care who sees us together.

Adam: Yeah, it might be better, though, if nobody did. I mean, certain people might misunderstand.

Sharon: Well, "Certain people" can take a flying leap.

Adam: Okay, then. (Chuckles)

Sharon: Listen, I have to go. Um, I have an appointment with my trainer, but you want to get together later?

Adam: Sure. At your place?

Sharon: No, I just thought we'd meet here in public. Whoever sees us together, tough.

Adam: You're on.

Ashley: Well, hi. Hi.

Sharon: Hi, Ashley. I-I haven't seen you in a while.

Ashley: Oh, I know. I've been kind of swamped with everything.

Sharon: Right. Yeah, with the baby and...

Ashley: Yeah.

Sharon: Almost forgot what those days are like. How is the baby?

Heather: Eat, sleep, work. (Gasps) Get an occasional run in once in a while. Yeah, that's about it on my end.

Paul: No new man in your life?

Heather: A bit gun-shy.

Paul: (Sighs) I hated to be the one to tell you about Adam.

Heather: No more than I hated hearing it. Work helps.

Paul: Yeah, it does. Although...

Heather: Although what? Does this mean there's life after Nikki?

Paul: (Chuckles)

Heather: (Gasps)

Paul: You never know.

Heather: What? Oh, my g--okay, so let's see. Well, it can't be Patty's doctor because that would be way too weird. So Lauren's married.

Paul: Extremely.

Heather: I-is it someone new or someone you've known for a while?

Paul: What is this? "20 questions"?

Heather: Shh! I'm living vicariously.

Paul: Okay.

Heather: Um... Nina Webster! (Gasps)

Paul: (Laughs)

Heather: Oh, my gosh. I'm right. It's Nina.

Paul: Look, I'm not saying a word, okay?

Heather: Uh-huh.

Paul: Mm-hmm. You know, it's way too early to say anything.

Heather: Mm-hmm. Yeah.

Paul: I mean-- although admittedly, it, um, it's kind of nice.

Heather: To have someone to look forward to for a change.

Jill: Promise me that you'll keep it a secret, okay? But Paul and I have been seeing each other. (Chuckles) Mm.

Kay: Well, are you alone this morning?

Jill: Why wouldn't I be alone? I-- oh. (Chuckles) You mean, did Paul stay over? No, he didn't, if that's what you're talking about.

Kay: Mm. Are you trying to be coy with the man?

Jill: Mnh. Can you tell me why Mackenzie was so upset with Billy last night? Are they having issues again?

Kay: No, no, no, you do not. We are talking about you and this new love of your life, not the kids.

Jill: Well, I don't like to kiss and tell.

Kay: After that public display?

Jill: Katherine, you are so literal.

Kay: Uh-huh. W-was it a moment of passion, or were you trying to hide something you-- that you're really up to?

Jill: Why is it so hard for you to believe that I could actually be dating someone?

Kay: Well, when that someone is Paul Williams, yes, I-I have problems.

Jill: Why? 'Cause I'm not in his league?

Kay: Oh, nonsense. You know I'm fond of you both. But for him to jump from going out with Nikki to another woman so soon--

Jill: You know what? Hey, hey, hey. Let's not waste time on this trivial nonsense, okay? You know what we should be talking about? We should be focusing on Chancellor's I.P.O. do you know how jammed my e-mail has been ever since word leaked out that Chancellor is issuing stock?

Kay: As is my e-mail, Jill. Those sharks-- they are a-circling.

Jack: I understand the mother ship's about to go public.

Neil: Really? Where'd you hear that?

Jack: Tell me I'm wrong. Neil, I want in on the ground floor of any new stock deal.

Neil: Hold on. Hold on. I'm not gonna discuss this in the hallways of one of our subsidiaries.

Jack: Boardroom's free.

Neil: After you.

Ashley: The baby's doing just fine. Thank you for asking.

Sharon: Oh, I'm sorry.

Ashley: About what?

Sharon: Well, the baby, she has a name--Faith. And I shouldn't, um, avoid it just because--

Ashley: Sharon, honestly. I mean, I can understand why you'd be sensitive about this. And I-I-if I had had any idea that you were gonna name your child Faith, I mean--

Sharon: Oh, no, no, no, no. Listen, I'm--I'm really happy that you chose that name.

Ashley: Really?

Sharon: Honestly.

Ashley: Okay, well, um, I was gonna call my nanny and actually have her bring the baby by, 'cause I have a little free time. Would you like to join us?

Sharon: That sounds nice.

Ashley: Yeah? Okay.

Adam: Um, Sharon, remember you, um, actually have, uh, you're supposed to meet your trainer, right?

Sharon: (Gasps) Oh, gosh. I'm late--uh, my trainer.

Ashley: Okay, well, we'll do it another time. No big deal.

Sharon: Um, or I could just run downstairs and reschedule. I'm sure he wouldn't mind.

Adam: Um, you sure you want to do that? I mean, you have that appointment for later. I hate to see that thing pushed back.

Sharon: Right. Uh, I'd better stick to the plan.

Ashley: Okay. Well, call me when you have free time.

Sharon: Okay. Bye, you guys.

Ashley: Bye. Good to see you again.

Sharon: You, too.

Adam: Later, Sharon.

Ashley: So... sorry I missed you this morning.

Adam: (Sighs) Um, yeah, I-I got up early, and decided to come have breakfast before heading to the office.

Ashley: I never had a chance to ask about your business trip. I mean, we talked about your injury.

Adam: Counting perfume bottles was a thrill a minute.

Ashley: (Laughs) Well, so what do you want to do? You want to grab a table? And you can tell me all about it.

Adam: Uh, you know, I-I-I do need to get into the office. Uh, I'm sure Nick has some wastebaskets for me to empty.

Ashley: Uh-huh.

Jeff: This is--

Gloria: Unh, unh, unh, unh. So very generous of you, Nicholas. Thank you very much.

Nick: It was the right thing to do.

Gloria: Mm.

Phyllis: Yeah, I'm proud of you, baby.

Nick: Um, I need to get to the office, so if you see Jill, can you--

Michael: Yeah, I'll pass that along.

Phyllis: Um, I will-- I'll finish my coffee first, and then I'll come in after you, okay?

Nick: Okay, sounds good. Everyone, take care.

Michael: See you later.

Gloria: (Sighs) Well, I guess its good-bye, Honey bear.

Kevin: Oh, come on, guys. Who am I supposed to get to cover your shifts?

Jeff: Checked the unemployment figures lately?

Kevin: Oh, that's-- that's fine. Fine, I'll call Ryder. He's dependable.

Jeff: Hmm.

Michael: I'm glad it worked out for you.

Jeff: Yeah, listen, about that--

Gloria: Mikey, I didn't want to sound ungrateful in front of Nicholas, but the size of this check compared to what we lost--

Jeff: Yeah, there seem to be a few zeros missing.

Gloria: Are you telling me this is really all we're getting back?

Michael: You're kidding me. You have got-- (Lowers voice) You have got to be kidding me. You're lucky you get anything. You put your money in an offshore bank without insurance.

Jeff: (Sighs)

Michael: You knew the risk.

Gloria: (Scoffs)

Michael: (Normal voice) Jill. Jill. Please.

Gloria: Oh.

Jill: Hi.

Gloria: Look what we just got.

Jeff: Yeah, Newman, um, already cut our checks.

Jill: Ahh.

Michael: And I've got one for you, too.

Jill: Great. This'll come in handy.

Jeff: Um... (Clears throat) Aren't you gonna open it?

Jill: Mm.

Gloria: Is it what you expected?

Jill: It's good to have closure.

Michael: Hear, hear.

Jeff: Um, got any plans for all that money?

Jill: Yes, Jeffrey, I'm gonna invest it much more wisely than I did the last time. If you're smart, you'll do the same thing.

Gloria: Definitely up to something.

Jeff: Big-time.

Jack: Hypothetically then.

Neil: Yeah, hypothetically, if Chancellor were to issue shares of common stock, and I'm not saying we are, you wouldn't be the type of investor that we'd approach. And there--there's no offense.

Jack: No offense taken. But why decide today? I mean, once you find a banker to handle the deal, we negotiate a price--

Neil: No, no, no, no, no. See, it's not about the price, and you know that.

Jack: Do I?

Neil: Katherine isn't interested in handing you any more leverage than you already have.

Jack: No one's handing me anything. You'd be selling me something.

Neil: Be that as it may, we are not--

Jack: Okay, yeah, yeah. I know, I know--you don't want me to have any real say in a company my father spent his life building.

Neil: Jack, I know the whole story, and I'm sor-- I'm sorry you're unhappy.

Jack: You could change that, you know. Neil, let me in. I promise you that--

Neil: Jack, read my lips. It ain't gonna happen. You're gonna have to learn to live with that.

Jack: The hell I will.

Nick: These are the companies we're interested in acquiring.

Adam: You want my analysis?

Nick: No. Verify the financials, and correct the mistakes.

Adam: An all-but-blind proofreader. Now that-- that is a vote of confidence.

Nick: If you need them converted into Braille, let me know.

Adam: A bright light, a big, old magnifying glass-- I'm good to go.

Nick: So I'm sure you're gonna do a great job, Adam.

Adam: You know, before Dad left town, he, uh, he wanted you to broaden my responsibilities, not just expand my busywork.

Nick: Adam, I'm giving you tasks that I think you can handle. And since Dad left me in charge--

Adam: He also instructed you not to disrespect me. If the tables were turned, Nick--

Nick: And they were. Do you remember that? That's just one of the many reasons it's gonna take you a while to earn back my trust. Now until that day comes--

Adam: Not a comma out of place.

Nick: Good. That's a can-do attitude. That's what I want to hear. Have a good day.

Kay: Well, knowing Jack, he's not a man who gives up easily.

Mitchell: And particularly where Jabot's concerned.

Kay: Mm-hmm.

Neil: Oh, it's all handled-- for now, anyway.

Kay: Thank you, Neil.

Neil: Now I've been lining up meetings with potential underwriters. That's probably where he got his information.

Mitchell: Oh, it's impossible to keep such things quiet. As soon as we file our s-1 with the S.E.C., we all better brace ourselves. Solid company like Chancellor going public-- (Chuckles) Huh? Even at 25%.

Neil: Yes, Sir. It's bound to generate a flood of interest.

Mitchell: Yeah.

Kay: Oh, dear God. The pressure on the bankers are gonna be enormous.

Mitchell: Well--

Neil: Kay, listen to me. We're gonna have to choose wisely... although I must say, the more I run the numbers, the more excited I am about moving forward.

Kay: Mm. Uh, I'm--I'm sorry. Listen, um, have either of you, uh, heard from Jill? I mean, she was-- she was supposed to be joining us.

Jill: (Chuckles) New girlfriend, reporting for duty.

Paul: My daughter's here. Would you like to announce our engagement?

Jill: Oops. (Chuckles)

Heather: Yeah. Okay. All right. Bye-bye. Good morning.

Jill: Good morning, Heather.

Paul: Jill and I are, uh, meeting on a case.

Heather: Oh, all right. Well, I'll, um, I'll get out of your hair then.

Paul: How about dinner sometime this week?

Heather: It's a date.

Paul: Okay? Great.

Heather: Mm-hmm. Bye.

Jill: Bye. Have a nice day.

Heather: Thanks.

Paul: There you go.

Heather: Bye.

Paul: I'll call you later.

Heather: Talk to you later. Bye.

Paul: All right, bye.

Jill: Is there a problem?

Paul: Um, what were you thinking telling Kay that we were involved?

Jill: Oh, I'm sorry. I just didn't want her to know that we were looking for her daughter.

Paul: (Sighs) So you thought you'd throw her way off-track.

Jill: (Chuckles) Well, it worked, didn't it?

Paul: Well, you're lucky I didn't burst out laughing.

Jill: Hey. I think I should be insulted.

Paul: Well, I'm all for having a cover, but, um, don't you think we should have one that works better than that?

Jill: I think this will work great, okay? If everybody thinks we're lovers, we could work on this case day and night, and nobody would suspect a thing.

Gloria: If we don't cash these checks, what other recourse do we have?

Michael: Meaning what? You want to sue Newman?

Gloria: Mm-hmm.

Jeff: That an option?

Michael: I don't know why I should be surprised. Nicholas could have dragged this on for years. He could have frittered everything away on legal fees with no guarantee there would even be a settlement.

Gloria: Honey, we are not trying to be difficult, but we lost everything-- our entire nest egg-- because Victor pulled his money out of that bank.

Jeff: He forced that bank to go down the tubes, and took all us little guys right along with it.

Michael: Oh, well, you know, with a little forethought, most people could live quite well on those funds. (Stammers) Just for once-- couldn't you be happy with what you have, for once?

Gloria: (Scoffs)

Jeff: Mike, it's the principle of the thing.

Gloria: (Scoffs)

Michael: No, you're not-- you know, I give up. If you still feel that you're mistreated, you're both living in a fantasy world.

Gloria: Mm.

Jeff: Nothing wrong with a little... (Sighs) Fantasy.

Gloria: (Chuckles) Honey, you can't blame a girl for wanting more.

Michael: Then hire a good financial advisor and do as Jill suggested-- invest wisely. No more get-rich-quick schemes that'll land you in jail.

Kevin: Wait, what? Who's going to jail?

Michael: No one.

Ryder: That include me? (Chuckles)

Kevin: I guess it's all good now, thanks to Michael.

Michael: You're off the hook for murder, at any rate.

Kevin: And thank you for getting here so quickly since these two traitors didn't give me any notice.

Ryder: Yeah, Kevin told me you quit. I guess that--that ship you were talking about finally came in.

Jeff: (Chuckles)

Gloria: Mm-hmm, sooner than we expected.

Kevin: Well, it looks like I'm gonna have to promote you now. You're gonna have more responsibilities around here.

Lauren: So Michael is-- he's so angry about what happened last night.

Phyllis: Right.

Lauren: And, um, I'm just trying to act like, you know, I'm okay, it doesn't affect me, but--

Phyllis: Oh, listen, listen, listen, you don't-- you don't have to pretend with us. You don't have to do that. Please. If somebody like Ryder or anybody else had pulled a stunt like that with me, oh, hell, girl.

Lauren: No, I know.

Phyllis: Come on.

Lauren: I know.

Ryder: Refill? Sorry. Am I interrupting something?

Phyllis: No. I was just talking to my friend Lauren here, and, uh, telling her that you can't take things lying down, you know? If somebody's trying to rattle you, you need to find out what's going on. Is the person a jerk, or are they trying to warn you? You know what I mean?

Ryder: I know.

Phyllis: Either way, you can't ignore it.

Ryder: I'd have to agree with that.

Lauren: Would you?

Ryder: Mm, it's a dangerous world-- gotta hold your own. Oh, hey, how was the-- the wedding? You had to bring Amber her dress, right?

Paul: You don't think she might be a tiny bit suspicious?

Jill: No, not at all. I mean, you wouldn't have to break in. And I have the key to her office.

Paul: That's not what I meant.

Jill: (Chuckles) Are you telling me that it's impossible to think you might be attracted to me?

Paul: No. Um, I mean, you're a very attractive woman, Jill. It's--

Jill: But just not to you. It's really that ludicrous that we could be romantically involved?

Paul: You do realize no matter what I say, I can't win.

Jill: Yep. So where do we stand?

Paul: Well, I guess we can't un-ring a bell.

Jill: So we're a couple. Good, it's settled. Good. How do things stand with the case?

Paul: They don't. Uh, nothing but dead ends. Uh, I-I think I have to go back to the basics.

Jill: Do you mind if we take this to the club? I could really use a bite to eat.

Paul: When? Now?

Jill: Yeah. It's our very first official fake date. Think you can handle it?

Paul: (Chuckles)

Jack: Great, Nicholas. I'll see you in a sec. Right-O.

Sharon: Hey, stranger.

Jack: Hey. What a nice surprise.

Sharon: It's been a while.

Jack: Yeah, it has.

Sharon: So how are things? How's work?

Jack: Uh, you know work. I'm ever trying to put myself in a position of more influence.

Sharon: Right. I read that Jill is coming back to Jabot.

Jack: Y-you know what? If things go my way, I may have something to offer you.

Sharon: Really? A job? That would be great.

Jack: Why don't you come by and see me?

Sharon: Okay. When?

Jack: Um, how about this afternoon?

Sharon: I-I'm busy this afternoon. How about tonight?

Jack: I already have plans.

Sharon: Oh. Well, we'll work it out, though. Sometime soon?

Jack: Count on it.

Sharon: Okay.

Gloria: Whatever Jill's up to, I want in.

Jeff: Yeah, we're partners.

Gloria: Yeah.

Jeff: She owes us.

Gloria: Damn right she does.

Jeff: I'm gonna make a few calls, see what I can find out.

Gloria: You do that, lover man. I'll be back in a little while.

Jeff: Where's my little kitten off to?

Gloria: (Chuckles) Hear they're having a big sale on caviar and private jets.

Jeff: (Chuckles)

Gloria: (Chuckles)

Lauren: So Ryder asked me about the wedding, right after he says, "Dangerous world we live in." I mean, come on.

Phyllis: Yeah, he was-- he was definitely taunting her.

Michael: Look, I don't like Ryder, either. Uh, I'm not saying you're wrong. But is it possible that we're reading too much into this?

Phyllis: No, definitely not. Nope.

Lauren: Mnh-mnh.

Phyllis: My gut is telling me, no, there's something weird about him.

Lauren: Yeah, I want to know exactly where he was last night and what he knows about the "Gift."

Michael: All right. All right, then we will ask him a few questions, and we'll take it from there.

Phyllis: Good. As much as I would love to stay--

Lauren: Oh, you mean you have a life? You have to work?

Phyllis: (Chuckles)

Lauren: Thanks for the support.

Phyllis: Yeah, good luck. Hey, I'm always here for you.

Lauren: I appreciate it. Thanks.

Michael: Kevin. Where was Ryder last night?

Kevin: He was here working. Why?

Michael: From when to when?

Kevin: It's about that stupid rat again?

Lauren: You know what, Kevin? He asked me about the wedding, as if he wanted to see how I was gonna react.

Kevin: What motive would he have for wanting to creep you out?

Lauren: Hello? I haven't exactly covered my distrust of him.

Kevin: So-- so he sent you "Willard" as a way to pay you back?

Michael: It's certainly not out of the realm of the possible.

Kevin: (Scoffs) You two just won't cut him a break, will you?

Michael: That's all I've been doing! (Lowers voice) And I'm not unaware that he doesn't like Lauren. So, yeah, he's on my list.

Ashley: I know about the Chancellor I.P.O. I want to be one of the ground floor investors.

Neil: Um, we aren't allowed to discuss that officially--

Ashley: Until after you file and the quiet period ends. I'm well aware. Believe me, anything that's said here will be kept strictly confidential.

Kay: Mm-hmm. Well, fair enough.

Ashley: Katherine, I'm a huge fan of your company. And with Neil running the day-to-day, I can't think of a better investment.

Kay: Uh, Ashley, as flattered as I am about your--your family's interest--

Neil: If we were considering selling shares on the market, it would be a public stock offering.

Kay: Yeah.

Neil: Ashley, we can't open the doors exclusively to you and Jack, not when Jabot is one of our key subsidiaries.

Ashley: Excuse me. Excuse me. I think there's a misunderstanding here.

Kay: Hmm?

Ashley: I'm not partnering with Jack. This is my own thing. And I hope this meeting will be kept very private.

Jack: They are being cagey as hell about the launch, but I think it's a safe bet that they would let Newman in. Now if you were to go for the entire offering--

Nick: Okay, just, Jack-- slow down. Slow down. I'm not about to buy 25% of Chancellor Industries. I don't have the cash right now, plus IPOs are risky. I can't afford to gamble the company's money.

Jack: What if it were my money?

Nick: Your money? And you would what, just cut us in for a percentage of the profits?

Jack: Exactly. If the whole thing goes bust, I lose. Newman Enterprises doesn't. But if the stock does well, you could restore that Cayman bank restitution money in a heartbeat. Nick, I'm offering you a hell of a deal here.

Nick: Well, given our history, I'm going to need a lot more information before I could even consider getting back into business with you.

Jack: I accept that. So fire away. I will do my best to answer any question you have.

Nick: Okay, then let's start with the obvious one. Why? Why would you do this for me?

Adam: Oh, sorry.

Heather: Yeah, sorry.

Adam: Heather, hi.

Heather: What happened?

Adam: Uh, it's a long story.

Heather: Oh. Well, at least you look stylish.

Adam: Thanks, I think.

Heather: Yeah. I mean, it wasn't that long ago that you were in sweats and wearing an ankle bracelet under house arrest. But now here you are, back in the world, in your fine Italian tailoring.

Adam: Well, it's actually Canadian. There's a lot of good tailors up in Toronto-- bad joke. Um, Heather, listen. I have--I've paid for my crimes.

Heather: You'd never know it. But then again, nothing bad seems to stick to you, does it? It's always amazed me how you just skate through everything.

Adam: Slowly going blind isn't exactly "Skating," Heather.

Heather: You may have everyone else fooled, Adam, but I know exactly who you are. You're a liar, through and through. God help the next woman who has to be with you. I come to you?

Nick: I'd say this is clearly about Jabot. Katherine is not going to give you this much clout. You went to her first, and she shot you down.

Jack: Actually, it was Neil, but you get a half a gold star.

Nick: (Chuckles) I'm surprised you admit that.

Jack: Well, now that I have, what do you say? Can we talk turkey?

Nick: Why else, Jack?

Jack: Why else, what?

Nick: You'd be risking an awful lot. You still wouldn't get back Jabot-- not even close.

Jack: Yeah, but I might get my family back.

Nick: Your family?

Jack: My family is quite-- what is the word? "Splintered" right now, for a lot of reasons. That doesn't sit well with me. "Jabot" has always been our rallying cry. A fellow can hope, can't he?

Nick: Okay. If Katherine Chancellor is offering stock to the public for the very first time, obviously, I'm gonna have to look into it. I'll weigh my options. I will seriously consider your proposal, Jack. But that's the best I can do right now.

Jack: Nick, you finish your due diligence. I guarantee you, you won't find a good reason to pass on this. I disapproved of a lot of things your father did, but he always knew a good deal when he saw one. I suspect you two share that trait.

Ashley: The last few weeks have been a revelation for me. I will never let myself be controlled by Jack or any other man. I will never let myself be boxed in because of some misguided sense of loyalty. I don't know, Neil. Do you have any idea where I'm coming from with this? I mean, you've lived under Victor's shadow. So how does it feel now that you're out in the sunlight?

Neil: (Chuckles) It feels pretty damn good.

Ashley: I know. I understand what's at stake for you, Katherine. If you let me invest in your company, I will be doing it by and for myself.

Kay: Ashley, my dear, I will support any woman who stands on her own. And we will be in touch, however things turn out.

Ashley: And I appreciate that.

Sharon: Um, when I said we should get together, this isn't exactly what I had in mind.

Adam: I just don't want, uh, Heather or anyone else, for that matter, hassling you over hanging out with me.

Sharon: I'm a big girl, Adam.

Adam: "The name is Bond. James Bond."

Sharon: (Laughs) Okay. Fine, "Mr. Bond." We'll play it your way. Can you pass me the nuts? Or will that tip off the K.G.B.?

Adam: You know, I really don't think we should press our luck. Besides, I had all the cashews.

Sharon: Oh, right. Yeah, I knew you were a cashew hog. I should have seen that coming. I'll never trust you now.

Adam: That seems to be the theme of the day.

Sharon: Heather?

Adam: And Nick. Because of my shady past, uh, he won't allow me to do much more than sharpen pencils.

Sharon: Well, I ran into Jack today.

Adam: Mm. I bet that was a barrel of laughs.

Sharon: It was kind of weird and sad. He's someone I used to be really close to.

Adam: You're that person for me now. I--there's only a few people in my life who can understand me.

Sharon: Ashley? Why did you, um, rush me out of the room as fast as you could when she invited me to sit down with her and Faith?

Jeff: Yeah, check it out with your contacts and get back to me. What, somebody, uh, hand you a big check, too?

Kevin: I know that this is probably a foreign concept to you, Jeffrey, but some people actually work for a living.

Jeff: And what do you call what your mother and I have been doing?

Kevin: Eating up my profits.

Jeff: (Chuckles sarcastically) And they call us ingrates.

Gloria: (Singing fanfare)

Jeff: Whoa!

Gloria: (Laughs)

Jeff: (Laughs)

Gloria: I have a life again! (Laughs)

Jeff: Hallelujah!

Gloria: What? I'm going to a real spa. No more strip mall manicures for me. (Laughs)

Kevin: So much for saving for a rainy day.

Jeff: Yeah, well, from what I'm hearing, we may not have to. Every banker in town is buzzing about chancellor. Gotta be what Jill was so tight-lipped about.

Kevin: Wait, what? What-- what's going on with Chancellor? Well, Mrs. Chancellor offered me a job yesterday. I'm headed over there in a little while.

Gloria: You are working at Chancellor?

Jeff: Perfect. You can find out what's going on.

Kevin: Mm, no.

Michael: As soon as you answer a few questions, we'll let you get back to work.

Kevin: (Sighs) Well, should I break out the rubber hoses?

Lauren: This isn't an interrogation, Kevin.

Michael: No, we're just trying to get to the truth.

Ryder: What about?

Lauren: At Amber and Daniel's wedding, are you aware of what happened to me there?

Ryder: Rat-in-a-box? Yeah, I heard about that.

Michael: Do you know where the ceremony was held?

Ryder: Daniel's place, on the roof.

Lauren: Where were you last night?

Kevin: I told you before-- he was here working.

Michael: The whole time?

Ryder: No. Uh, I went out for a while.

Michael: When?

Ryder: In the middle of my shift. Had to run an errand.

Lauren: What kind of errand?

Ryder: The usual kind.

Michael: Which is?

Ryder: Store, bank, that kind of thing.

Michael: Be more specific.

Ryder: I'm not real good with specifics, Michael. I'm sorry.

Michael: Were you with anyone?

Ryder: Do I ask you who you hang out with?

Michael: Answer the question.

Ryder: No. No, I was alone. No alibi this time.

Michael: Where did you go?

Ryder: Does it matter?

Michael: What did you do?

Ryder: Does it matter?!

Michael: Yes, it matters!

Kevin: You know what? All right, listen. Ryder, just answer his question, okay? And tell him where you were.

Ryder: Why, you know? I mean, it's--it's not like they're gonna believe me anyway.

Michael: You did it! You did it! You son of a--

Ryder: Hey! Hey! Get off me.

Michael: You did that to my wife!

Kevin: Michael! Michael! Get off of him!

Michael: You did that! You tell me! You look me in the eye. You tell me you did it. Tell me!

Kevin: Get off of him!

Adam: Ashley inviting you to spend time with Faith, uh, I just couldn't imagine how you would make it through that.

Sharon: Oh. So you were just protecting me.

Adam: (Sighs) Well, I know it wasn't my place.

Sharon: Well, you're right. Adam, I mean, that would have been a little bit hard for me. But I need to get through things like that. So thank you for thinking of me.

Adam: You're not mad at me?

Sharon: Oh, I'm-- I'm furious. In fact, if we weren't surrounded by spy cams right now, I would slide over there and hug you.

Adam: Guess what?

Sharon: What?

Adam: I'd hug you back.

Kay: Well, what a fascinating day this has been. Hmm.

Neil: A lot of excitement about owning a piece of Chancellor Industries, right?

Kay: Mm, particularly among the Abbotts.

Neil: Well, based on everything I've heard, I'd say our timing is absolutely excellent. We're being talked about all over town.

Kay: Mm. Do you know what is worse than being talked about?

Neil: No, what's that?

Kay: Not being talked about. (Chuckles)

Ashley: Hey.

Jack: Hey. I was about to grab some lunch. Join me.

Ashley: I already ordered something to go. It's been a very productive day.

Jack: Oh? Productive, how?

Ashley: Oh, thank you so much. You have a nice afternoon.

(Indistinct conversations)

Jill: Oh, look who's here, Darling.

Jack: So she is.

Jill: Oh, it's Katherine. Come on. Hi!

Kay: Mm.

Jill: Well, hello, you two. Do you mind if we join you?

Kay: (Sighs)

Phyllis: Why wouldn't you team up with Jack on this? Where's the downside? It's his money. It's also the money of Chancellor Industries.

Nick: With Jack, there's always a catch.

Phyllis: Well, yeah, I know. But the lawyers will tell you about that. But really, if this stock goes up, you could replenish all of Newman industries' money. And you'd own a piece of Jabot and Chancellor Industries. And if it tanks, Nick, it's not your problem. Your father wouldn't even be able to do something like this.

Nick: Because Jack never would have come to him in the first place.

Kevin: You let him go!

Lauren: Michael! Michael!

Kevin: Let him go.

Michael: After everything I did to clear you, you'd do that to my wife?!

Kevin: Listen, you can't just go around attacking people without proof. What's wrong with you?

Ryder: No, its okay, Kev. That's how people are. They never give you a chance.

Lauren: Look, its okay.

Michael: No, no, no! It's not okay.

Lauren: We both want to find out who sent me that box, but this--this is not the way.

Michael: (Chuckles) No, I know. I shouldn't let Ryder get to me. But you heard him. It's like he dared me to catch him.

Lauren: No, believe me.

Michael: (Sighs)

Lauren: It's exactly the way he was with Phyllis and me.

Michael: Look, he might have done it. He didn't do it. Either way, he is a bad seed. (Breathing heavily)

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

Mac: It hurts.

Billy: So why are we doing this to each other?

Phillip: If I go back, I can protect you.

Cane: We will go back together, and we'll put an end to this, once and for all.

Patty: You tried to seduce Jack. I saw you two having sex.
