Adam: You really think my being with you is about getting revenge on Nick?

Sharon: You told me that you resented having to answer to Nick at Newman.

Adam: I'm seeing you because I like you. I want to be with you.

Sharon: And I understand that you threatened to sue him.

Adam: Did you not notice the black eye on my face?

Sharon: Well, you knew that when he found out about this that it was gonna set him off. Maybe that was the point.

Adam: I can't believe you're saying this.

Sharon: Maybe this whirlwind romance wasn't as spontaneous as I was led to believe.

Adam: Hey. Did--did Nick put these thoughts in your head?

Sharon: Just tell me if I'm right. Did you get close to me and earn my trust as the ultimate "Screw you" to your brother?

Adam: (Sighs) No. (Sighs) I have fallen for you harder than I ever thought possible. This is real.

Nick: Hey.

Victoria: Hey.

Nick: You expecting someone else?

Victoria: No, uh, no. It was just a-- I mean, J.T. and I got in a huge fight, and he stormed off.

Nick: (Winces) Sorry, Vick.

Victoria: Well, it's not like I can blame him. I mean, you would have done the same thing if your wife's sordid affair was splashed all over the World Wide Web.

Nick: (Sighs) Yeah, Phyllis told me about the article.

Victoria: (Sighs)

Nick: I came over to see how you're doing.

Victoria: Well, so much for my grand jury testimony being sealed.

Nick: Yeah. Unfortunately, leaks happen.

Victoria: Yeah, but did it have to be "Restless Style"? (Sighs)

Nick: I'm so sorry. What can I do?

Victoria: There's nothing you can do. And the worst part is, I can't even dispute the article. I mean, I did it. I cheated. I have no one to blame for this but myself.

Nick: Oh, no, there's definitely someone else to blame.

Billy: Kitty, kitty, kit--

Chloe: (Chuckles)

Billy: Hey, yo.

Chloe: Oh.

Billy: Take it easy. There are kids in the room.

Chloe: Hey, there she is. Come here my little peek-a-boo.

Billy: (Growls)

Chloe: Hi. Hi. Oh!

Billy: You know, after that article, I half-expected to see you in here serving tea to the governor.

Chance: What article?

Chloe: Hey, I told you that my personal life was off-limits when it came to "Restless Style."

Billy: Oh, cool your Manolos, Mommy. I was referring to the article in the "Chronicle" about your, uh, knight in shining armor here.

Chloe: Yeah, so then you must have seen the adorable picture of me and Chance, hmm?

Billy: Of course I saw it. How could I miss it? You forwarded that link to everybody in your address book. Thanks to you, everybody in town knows about Chance's heroics.

Chloe: Yeah, as they should, right? Because, uh, this man here risked his life for injustice.

Billy: Did I just stumble into a bad "Justice League" comic book, or what? I mean, ug actually, no, I take that back. You know what you need? You need a trusty dog, an American flag and a pie of apple pie, and that prefect picture... (Clicks tongue) Right there. Oh, yeah.

Chloe: Oh, yeah. Right here.

Billy: (Chuckles)

Chloe: (Chuckles) (Growls)

Lauren: Hello, my love.

Michael: Hey.

Lauren: How many cups have you had? Truth.

Michael: I've lost count. Between Victoria's leaked testimony that appeared in "Restless Style," Daniel's indictment, and my other less scandal-ridden cases, uh, I'm gonna need a caffeine drip.

Lauren: There shouldn't be a case against Daniel. We both know he was set up. And I have a pretty good idea who might be responsible. (Scoffs) (Whispering) Why am I even surprised that Ryder left Daniel holding the bag?

Michael: (Whispering) I still haven't given up hope trying to get him to come clean about what he knows.

Lauren: Well, don't hold your breath, my love.

Michael: Well, l--

(Cell phone rings)

Michael: (Sighs) Hold on. (Normal voice) Yes, Chantal. What are you still doing at the office? All right, wait. Hold on. I'm not--hold--I-- all right, hold on. Hold on. Let me--let me go outside and get a better signal. Yeah, hold it.

Ryder: I don't know, Daisy. Yeah, I'll see if I can get away. Later. Let me guess-- uh, no whip skim latte.

Lauren: (Normal voice) Not here for a coffee. I think it's time that you and I have a serious talk.

Billy: Well, don't be surprised if you see some swizzle sticks in there.

Chloe: Where did you take her?

Billy: Uh, I had to meet an advertiser at the club.

Chloe: Oh, I'm sure that your advertiser loved having a baby in the meeting.

Billy: Oh, you kidding me? You kidding me? Delia's the reason why Seth signed on for a full-page spread.

Chloe: Whee!

Billy: Isn't that right?

Chloe: (Scoffs) Yes, which I can see tired her out. Nap time? All right, say, "Bye-bye, Daddy."

Billy: Oh, um, can I tuck her in with you?

Chloe: Yeah, that's not a problem.

Billy: (Chuckles)

Chloe: Do you want to come with?

Chance: Sure.

Billy: (Clears throat)

(Cell phone rings)

Chloe: (Blows raspberry)

Cordelia: (Squeals)

Chance: Uh, I gotta take this.

Chloe: Well, this is gonna be fun.

Billy: (Making silly noises)

Chloe: She's awake.

Chance: Wait. Riggs-- the guy that stabbed me Riggs?

Riggs: I saw your picture in the paper.

Chance: Yeah, you're the reason for it.

Riggs: Look, I'm in trouble, and I need a stand-up guy like you to help me. Could you just come down to the jail so that we can talk?

Chance: Look, I'm not going anywhere until you tell me what this is about and how the hell you got my number.

(Phone hangs up)

Chance: Hello? Hello, Riggs? Damn it.

Chloe: Is everything okay?

Chance: Huh? Yeah, uh, no. I don't know. I just got a weird phone call. I, uh, I gotta head down to the jail and--and just check it out, okay?

Chloe: Okay.

Billy: Well, if it isn't Genoa City's resident hero off to save the day again. Ta-da!

Chloe: Be careful.

Chance: I will. Come here.

Chloe: Okay. Mwah.

Chance: I'll call you later.

Chloe: Okay.

Chance: Bye.

Billy: Hmm.

Chloe: (Sighs)

Billy: So you're not playing him, huh?

Chloe: Excuse me?

Billy: Well, originally, I thought maybe you were just using Chance to make me jealous.

Chloe: Hmm.

Billy: (Mockingly) Hmm. (Normal voice) It's happened before, hasn't it?

Chloe: (Scoffs)

Billy: But when I walked in earlier, you two looked like you were genuinely surprised that you weren't alone, and the way you were just looking at him as he walked out, like you were worried, I don't know. It makes me wonder... (Whispering) Could this be love?

Chloe: Yeah, I'm pretty nuts about him.

Billy: (Normal voice) Yeah?

Chloe: I am. He's a really good guy, you know, unlike any other character I've ever dated. You know, he's trustworthy and dependable.

Billy: And he's boring as hell.

Chloe: (Scoffs)

Billy: (Chuckles)

Chloe: Yeah, said the guy who dated a wannabe saint.

Billy: All right, don't get nasty. I was just messing with you.

Chloe: Mm-hmm.

Billy: But if "Lover boy" ends up walking on water, you just give me a call, okay? (Chuckles) (Humming)

Ryder: I-I'm really not supposed to leave the counter.

Lauren: Oh, no, it's fine. I just have a couple of questions for you, starting with your disappearing act on Thanksgiving Day.

Ryder: Look, I-I'm sorry I bailed. It was, uh, it was really nice of you to invite me.

Lauren: So why leave?

Ryder: I guess I was just tired of being grilled-- first by Daniel, then by Kevin-- just started to get to me.

Lauren: You know, I have had my concerns about you from the very beginning. But I put those aside and I welcomed you into my family.

Ryder: I appreciate that.

Lauren: Then why do you keep pleading the fifth? If you had just told the truth, then Daniel wouldn't have had to go to jail. You knew we were counting on you, just like you knew there was a third man in the alley the night of the murder. So why not admit it?

Ryder: See, this-- this is what I'm talking about. I am sick of the accusations and the doubts. It's like, why even grill me in the first place? You're not gonna believe anything I say.

Lauren: I'm just trying to give you...

Together: The benefit of the doubt.

Lauren: Right.

Ryder: Yeah, yeah. Don't bother. If you've got something to say to me, say it.

Lauren: Fine. Don't play my family. I know that it means the world to Kevin that he's giving you this chance, so you make the most of it. But if you hurt one person I care about, you're gonna wish you were back in jail. Oh, wait a minute, wait a minute-- if I ever prove that you were the one that sent me the rat, you're gonna wish you never got out.

Michael: There you are. Everything all right?

(Cell phone rings)

Michael: Oh, wow. It's me again. Sorry. Yeah? Oh, hey, Bruce. Huh? Oh, yeah. Long time, no hear. Are you still licking your wounds after losing that case to me? Huh? Adam Wilson? (Laughs) He hired you? Well, the little weasel's really going through with it. I should have known. (Sighs)

Victoria: Ow. What happened to you?

Nick: Uh... (Sighs) You don't want to know. (Bottles clink)

Victoria: You didn't go after Billy because he posted that article, did you?

Nick: Mnh-mnh. But trust me, Billy's next.

Victoria: Oh, well, if not Billy, then it was Adam.

Nick: Yeah, he had it coming.

Victoria: I'm sure he did. But for you to go after our partially blind brother with your fist really doesn't sound like you, Nick.

Nick: I know. (Sighs) You know, the worst part is, I played right into his hands. I mean, he was looking for a reason to come after me, and I gave him one. I don't know how I can be so stupid sometimes.

Victoria: (Chuckles) Well, don't look at me. I'm just a woman who has an entire web site dedicated to her screw-up's, so I'm really not one to judge right now.

Nick: I'm sure Adam would just love to have what happened go public. I mean, anything to put me in a bad light.

Victoria: (Sighs) Uh, it's easier said than done. Listen, don't let Adam get to you. I mean, what can he really take from you? Nothing, unless you let him.

Nick: (Sighs) You'd be surprised.

Adam: You gotta believe me. But you don't, so I'll tell you. I will tell you all the reasons that this isn't about Nick, and it's not just that you're beautiful, stunning, funny and kind. You get me. You get me in ways no one else ever has. You listened while I told you some of the horrific things that I have done. You didn't judge me. My own fa-- (Sighs) My own family wouldn't have me at the table for Thanksgiving, and you shared a plate of pasta with me. (Sighs) And it was-- it was the best meal I've had in years. (Sighs) (Sighs) And it's not just that you were there for me. You let me be there for you, too, to listen while-- while you grieved for the baby that you lost...

Sharon: (Sniffles)

Adam: Which is pretty incredible, considering we barely even knew each other, and I know that you felt the same connection that I did. And finally, there was someone that you could be yourself with, who accepted you, no matter what-- no axes to grind, no agenda. That is what you have been for me, and what I-- what I had hoped to be for you. (Sighs) And most of all... (Sighs) (Voice breaking) After everything you've heard about me, you saw good in me. (Sniffles) No one... (Sighs) Has believed in me like that since my mother.

Sharon: Adam, I'm so sorry that--

Adam: No, Sharon. I've gotta go. I'm sorry.

Billy: (Chuckles)

Chloe: (Muttering) Oh, you're still here?

Billy: Yeah, well, your mother makes the best Reuben I've ever had in my life, and I am tired of eating out. Come on.

Chloe: Oh, what, did you lose your personal chef now that Mac is eating pickles and ice cream?

Billy: Oh, well, I bet that Chance is just wonderful in the kitchen. I bet he is. Is there anything that "Dudley do-right" can't do?

Chloe: You just can't stand that he's a good guy, can you?

Billy: Can you? I mean, this "Boy wonder" routine, it's not really your style at all.

Chloe: Uh, thank God. Are you kidding me? I forgot what it's like to be with a good guy. I mean, did you know that there are actually men out there who put their women first?

Billy: What, are you implying that I don't?

Chloe: Maybe instead of dogging him, you should try to be more like him.

Billy: (Chuckles) Oh, boy, has that guy done a number on you.

Chloe: Oh, Chance doesn't do numbers.

Billy: So I hear. Could you just turn your brain back on? There is no one in this world who is as moral as Chance is.

Chloe: Oh, you know, you really shouldn't bring everyone down to your low standards, Billy.

Billy: (Clears throat) One word--Cane.

Chloe: Yeah, what about him?

Billy: This entire town believed that he was the answer to every woman's prayers, that he was--he was moral. He was upright. He was just. They found out that he was just a lying fraud.

Chloe: Yeah, and Chance is nothing like Cane.

Billy: Well, maybe not, but you should watch your back anyway, because one day, you might come home to find out that "Sir Galahad" isn't as squeaky clean as he claims to be.

Chance: Thank you.

Man: How's our local hero?

Chance: Good. Good. Thanks a lot, Sid. Look, um, what's going on here? I mean, it's not lights out yet. Where are the inmates?

Sid: In their cells, all except for your knife-wielding friend.

Chance: You're talking about Riggs.

Sid: His escape's the reason for lockdown.

Chance: (Sighs) Sid, he called me and asked me to come down here. He said he needed my help with something.

Sid: With what?

Chance: I wish I knew.

Sid: Yeah, me, too. All I do know is he's long gone now.

Victoria: So I am taking it that you're not gonna tell me what happened with Adam to set you off?

Nick: You know, I'd rather focus on getting J.T. to ignore the article.

Victoria: (Sighs) It's not just the article. No, we've been having problems for quite a while now.

Nick: I know you were hoping going to New York might get you guys back on track.

Victoria: Yeah, I was. So much for that. You know, J.T. was working the entire time I was there, and then when we were together, well, things were just tense.

Nick: I'm really sorry, Vick.

Victoria: (Sighs) It's like everything that happened was just hanging over our heads the whole time.

Nick: Well, since you've been home, have things changed for you guys?

Victoria: No, they're worse than ever now. We don't even bond over Reed anymore. I mean... (Sighs) I just feel like there's this big wall up, and I don't know to tear it down. I'm really scared, Nick.

Nick: Okay. Last time I suggested this, you practically ripped my head off, so I'm gonna try again. Maybe it's time you reconsider my offer to go to Dubai to work for Newman. Maybe some time apart is exactly what you guys need.

Victoria: I don't know. I mean, I don't know. I-I don't know. I-- I couldn't leave Reed for that long.

Nick: Then take him with you, Sis. You know, when Dad asked me to go to China, we were having serious problems, Phyllis and I were. But I went, and it turned out to be the best thing for us. It gave us some time and space to clear our heads, to really think about what's important. Sometimes distance is what a marriage needs to survive.

Victoria: I wish I could have a guarantee of that.

Nick: I can't do that, but I can guarantee you that you'll be walking into a situation where your talents and expertise will be hugely appreciated.

Victoria: Well, that would be nice for a change, wouldn't it?

Nick: Yeah, go over there, spend a few months doing what you love. Then maybe things over here won't look so bad.

(Cell phone rings)

Nick: Sorry. Excuse me. Hey, Michael. I was just about to call you. Uh, Phyllis and I want you and Lauren to come over--

Michael: Yeah, yeah. That sounds great. Uh, are you still at the office?

Nick: Do I need to be?

Michael: Uh, we should probably discuss this there. Phyllis has enough on her mind with Daniel.

Nick: What's going on?

Michael: Adam went and did it. He's suing you for assault.

Nick: (Sighs)

Billy: What do you mean, "No conscience"?

Chloe: I read your online trash fest on Victoria Newman.

Billy: It was all true.

Chloe: So that justifies making her problems public? I think it was enough when you hinted at the affair when J.T. went off on Deacon Sharpe-- those photos. But then you had to go ahead, and you had to do a follow-up.

Billy: Yeah, I had to, okay? Because I need to prove that "Restless Style" isn't just some tabloid rag everybody thinks it is. I need to show that we print the truth.

Chloe: At all costs-- attacking someone's reputation.

Billy: Oh, you know, where the hell do you get off chastising me about cashing in on a scandal, huh? You want "Restless Style" to be a success just like I do.

Chloe: (Sighs)

Billy: And before you started hookin' up with Chance, you would have done the same, if not worse to get what you want.

Chloe: You're wrong, Billy.

Billy: And-- and don't kid yourself. You can't keep up this goody-two-shoes act very long.

Chloe: (Sighs) Why don't you finish your sandwich and go?

Billy: You know what? I might have been wrong also when I said that Chance was gonna be the one that let you down. I'm pretty sure you're gonna be the one that hurts him, just like I hurt Mac.

Chloe: Guess what? We are nothing like you and Mac.

Billy: Oh, come off of it. Chance and Mac, they're cut from the same kind, altruistic cloth. You and I? We're from the dark side, baby.

Chloe: Well, maybe I've changed.

Billy: Yeah. I told myself that once, too. Let me know if it works out for you, okay?

Chloe: (Sighs)

Sid: So apparently, Riggs was complaining of severe stomach pains. The warden called for an ambulance. En route to the hospital, he gave 'em the slip.

Chance: Yeah, but why wasn't he shackled? Where were the EMTs? I mean, didn't anyone try and stop him?

Sid: Apparently, it happened lightning fast. But, yeah, he was still in the chains.

Chance: (Groans) Sid, none of this makes any sense.

Sid: (Sighs) I wish I had some answers, Kid. I'm just starting to dig into it myself. I'll probably need to question you more as I get into it a little deeper.

Chance: Can you at least keep me posted on whatever you guys find?

Sid: Sure thing.

Chance: Thank you.

Sid: All right.

Chance: Appreciate it. (Sighs)

Michael: Before I go off to meet Nick, do you want to tell me what that little, uh, stare-down with Ryder was about earlier?

Lauren: He was just processing a warning I issued him not to mess with my family. Seriously, I will not tolerate Ryder hurting anybody that I care about, and I let him know it.

Michael: Well, I hope it sinks in.

Lauren: It better have. Anyway, Doll, I have to go. I promised Daisy I would close up. But I was thinking...

Michael: Hmm?

Lauren: That maybe we'd finish at the same time, and we'd meet up for a, you know, after-dinner drink? Mm.

Michael: Mm. I was hoping for more than that.

Lauren: Oh, really?

Michael: Mm-hmm.

Lauren: Okay. Mm. Done.

Michael: (Inhales) (Sighs)

Michael: Oh, Adam.

Adam: Michael.

Michael: I just spoke with your lawyer.

Adam: Glad to hear he's earning his retainer.

Michael: Well, uh, you got a minute? I think we should talk.

Nick: Son of a bitch. Adam was just waiting for an opportunity to mess with me, and now I gotta deal with this stupid lawsuit.

Victoria: Well, it will be interesting to hear what Michael has to say.

Nick: Yeah, I gotta go talk to him.

Victoria: (Sighs)

Nick: Look, about Dubai, I don't want to overstep, but I just really don't want to see your marriage fall apart, Sis.

Victoria: Well, you and me both, thanks. I just don't know that running away is the right thing to do. I mean, especially if it means taking Reed away from his dad for so long.

Nick: Okay, well, what's worse, him being away from his dad for six weeks, or permanently after a divorce?

Victoria: Maybe I should go before Billy decides to write another exposé on me.

Nick: Don't worry about that punk. I'm gonna take care of him.

Victoria: No, just forget about Billy. You concentrate on putting this mess with Adam behind you, okay?

Nick: All right. See ya.

Victoria: See ya.

(Doorbell rings)

Sharon: Mom.

Doris: Hi. I promised Noah I would bake him up a batch of his favorite cookies.

Sharon: Oh, I'm sure he'll appreciate that. Come on in.

Doris: Oh, the place looks lovely.

Sharon: Thank you. Well, it should. I feel like I do nothing but clean it lately.

Doris: Surely, Noah doesn't generate that much mess.

Sharon: (Sighs) No, I think I just do it to keep my mind off things.

Doris: About the baby? It's good that you have Noah.

Sharon: Yeah. Well, when he's here. You know, he's a teenager. And I can't expect him to sit here and babysit his mom. I mean, I know what that felt like, and I... (Sighs)

Doris: Oh, those flowers are lovely. Are they from the yard?

Sharon: Uh, no, those-- those were a gift.

Doris: I didn't think Jack was still sending flowers.

Sharon: He's not.

Doris: Don't tell me--Nick?

Sharon: No. I've been seeing someone new, Mom.

Doris: Already? Oh, Sweetheart, when will you ever learn?

Lauren: Ryder? Hey, Daisy.

Daisy: You're back.

Lauren: Yeah, how was business?

Daisy: It's been a little slow.

Lauren: Oh. Ooh, how's your burn healing?

Daisy: Um, pretty well, actually. And now I know I can dress a mannequin with one hand.

Lauren: (Chuckles) I hope it didn't ruin your whole Thanksgiving.

Daisy: Are you kidding me? I had so much fun with you and your family. I-I told my parents how great everyone was, and my mother said I'm lucky, 'cause you're like my surrogate mom.

Lauren: Aw, that's so sweet. I mean, really, I'm the lucky one. 'Cause not only did I find a hard worker, but I found a great girl. (Chuckles)

Daisy: (Chuckles)

Billy: Thank you, Ess! That sandwich really hit the spot! Am I gonna see you at the office tomorrow?

Chloe: Yeah, I'm there every day.

Billy: (Grumbles) Okay, I know you're upset at me for "Dogging" Chance.

Chloe: Look, this actually has nothing to do with Chance. You are bummed out about Mac, and you just want company in your misery.

Billy: No, I just want you to slow down a little bit.

Chloe: (Sighs) Well... (Clicks tongue) My life is not about what you want anymore, so unless it has to do with our daughter, you can butt out.

Billy: (Clears throat)

Chance: (Clears throat) Is everything okay?

Chloe: Yes. Billy was just leaving.

Billy: So any juicy tidbits from the cellblock for our readers at "Restless Style"?

Chloe: You just never quit, do you?

Billy: No.

Chance: Billy, I read the last article you wrote on Victoria Newman. I think I'll pass.

Billy: Okay. But don't say I never offered.

Chloe: (Sighs) I'm sorry about that.

Chance: No, don't apologize for Billy. Besides, what's bugging me has nothing to do with him.

Sharon: I would think that you would want me to be happy.

Doris: Are you happy?

Sharon: Yes. I have finally met a man who doesn't treat me like I'm some poor, helpless mess.

Doris: I think Nick and Jack treated you pretty well.

Sharon: This guy, he just--he understands me on a level that they never did.

Doris: It's not that I don't want you to be happy. It's just that you tend to rush into things.

Sharon: That's not what I'm doing.

Doris: When was the last time you were without a man? (Sighs) You've been through a lot. You lost a child. You can't tell me you have no feelings left for her father.

Sharon: (Sighs) Mom, Nick and I are over.

Doris: Oh, I've heard that before.

Sharon: No, it's true. He has no intention of leaving Phyllis, and even if he did, you know what? I'm--I'm happy with Adam.

Doris: Adam? (Stammers) Doesn't Nick have a brother named--

Sharon: Yes. Yes. He--he is Nick's brother, but that has nothing to do with why I'm seeing him.

Doris: Whatever the reason, you are asking for trouble.

Michael: Nick realizes he was completely out of line, and he deeply regrets his actions.

Adam: Look, if you're just gonna continue to make excuses for him--

Michael: No, I am just hoping that cooler heads can prevail, and we can all reach common ground outside of the courtroom.

Adam: I would like nothing more than to let this go, but I can't. I've done nothing but play by the rules. Even though I'm qualified for a high-level position, I took my lumps as Nick's lackey. I figured that over a long enough timeline, he would see that I was a faithful employee. Eventually, the grunt work would end. And clearly, that was not his plan.

Michael: I didn't realize that this punch was related to your position at Newman.

Adam: No, not directly. But I realized I cannot let him continue these bully tactics personally and professionally, which is why I'm suing him and Newman.

Michael: Hmm. Well, in that case, I have one request-- call Victor. If you're gonna sue the company along with Nicholas, you are essentially suing your father.

Adam: That will be on Nicholas' head.

Michael: Regardless, Victor deserves a heads-up. See ya around.

Adam: Dad, its Adam.

Lauren: All right, I'm just gonna put the money in the safe and lock up.

Daisy: Um, want me to stick around?

Lauren: Uh, you know what? I think I've got it.

Daisy: All right, see you tomorrow.

Lauren: Okay, good night.

Daisy: Good night.

Lauren: Dai--Daisy? Is that you?

(Rustling sounds)

Lauren: What?

(Rustling grows louder)

Lauren: Daisy? What is that noise?


Lauren: What is that? (Screams) (Gasps) Oh!

Billy: Well, I say if Daddy Victor wants to come down here and defend his little girl's honor, then bring him on. Oh, speak of the devil. Um, thank you for your call. Have a good day. I'd ask what I could do for you, but I have a pretty good idea why you're here.

Victoria: You're messing with the wrong Newman.

(Knock on door)

Michael: Hey.

Nick: What's up?

Michael: Sorry I'm late. I ran into Adam at Crimson Lights. I spoke to him about keeping this whole mess out of the court.

Nick: Was he receptive?

Michael: Not at first, but then I encouraged him to call your father. I figured only Victor could talk him out of suing you, and he did. I got a call from Adam confirming it.

Nick: That's what I want to hear.

Michael: Well, let's not get all excited. In exchange for dropping the suit, Adam wants a promotion.

Nick: Oh, here we go. (Sighs) What's he want? President? C.E.O.?

Michael: Partners with you at Newman.

(Nick's cell phone drops)

Michael: Either he gets it, or you risk losing your position altogether.

Chance: So Riggs faked an illness and managed to escape.

Chloe: You mean the guy who stabbed you is out there roaming the streets? Just roaming?

Chance: Yes. Look, don't worry. Everything's gonna be fine, though, okay?

Chloe: All right, but what if he goes after you again?

Chance: I don't think he has it in for me. But my question now is, if he was planning to escape, why would he call me? I mean, this-- this doesn't make any sense. I mean, unless... (Sighs)

Chloe: Unless what?

Chance: Unless-- I don't know. I don't know, but I can't shake this feeling that there's something else.

Chloe: (Sighs)

Lauren: (Sighs)

Daisy: Lauren?

Lauren: Oh, Daisy! Daisy, don't move. There's a rat in here!

Daisy: Oh! I just came back for my scarf, but now I kinda wish I didn't. What's with the lights?

Lauren: I don't know. They just, like, suddenly went off. What the-- oh, my God. Where did the rat go?

Daisy: Another rat? Do--do you think the person who sent the rat to Daniel and Amber's wedding sent this one to you, too?

Lauren: Well, believe me, I'd like to think it was a coincidence, but I think I saw Ryder leaving the store when I got here earlier.

Daisy: Ryder here?

Lauren: Yeah, I mean, I saw him from behind, but, I don't know. Maybe it wasn't him. I am so freaked out. I-I have just gotta call the exterminator right now.

Daisy: Y-you know, I wouldn't write this off. I mean, I didn't personally see Ryder, but the guy totally creeps me out. What if-- what if he did do this?

Ryder: (Sighs)

Billy: Okay. Just go ahead and say what you came to say. Just don't slap me again this time. I have a photo shoot with a local paper. Actually, they're-- they're doing an article on the blowout success of "Restless Style," so...

Victoria: Hmm. You know, you sit there, and you tally your web site hits and your little sales figures, and you don't even give a damn whose lives you ruin.

Billy: Well, it's not like I'm making this stuff up, is it?

Victoria: You don't care that my marriage might be over because of what you've done, and that my little boy might have to watch his mom and dad go through a divorce because you want to beat last month's circulation?

Billy: You know, I didn't force you into Deacon Sharpe's bed.

(Computer keys clicking)

Victoria: No, you didn't. But since it's clear you don't know what it is that you did do, I guess I'll just have to find another way to make my point.

Billy: Well, Sweetheart, I'm all ears.

Victoria: Well, no, it's kind of a "When you least expect it" sort of a thing.

Billy: Ooh.

Victoria: You have no idea the trouble I can cause for you, do you?

Billy: (Clears throat) (Mouthing words)

(Computer keys clicking)

Nick: How dare he even think he deserves that?

Michael: All right, see, this is exactly the attitude that got Adam worked up in the first place.

Nick: What are you talking about?

Michael: Your father asked you to introduce your brother into this company respectfully. Instead, you took every opportunity to treat him like an underling. In doing so, you worked up somebody who already had a rather big chip on his shoulder.

Nick: Yeah, well, maybe I was dismissive, but the idea of him even walking these halls is obscene after what he's pulled.

Michael: Be that as it may, you ignored your father's request.

Nick: And now I'm gonna ignore Adam's. There is no way in hell I'm gonna let this punk be my partner. Even Dad wouldn't sign off on that.

Michael: Actually, it was Victor's idea.

Nick: (Sighs)

Sharon: (Sighs) Why can't she just be happy for me? (Sighs)

(Knock on door)

Adam: Let's make sure we lock the door this time.

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

Deacon: That little message we discussed? Why, I think it's time we deliver it.

J.T.: Maybe I-I'll never be able to trust Victoria completely again.

Heather: If you refuse to reveal your informant--

Billy: All right, stop. You are not even thinking about charging me with a crime.
