Sharon: One of these days, I'm gonna figure out what the secret ingredient is in this.

Adam: Did you ask?

Sharon: Yeah, I asked them. They're not gonna tell me.

Adam: You know why? (Whispering) It's probably a controlled substance-- very addictive.

Sharon: (Whispering) Yeah, you know, that--that would explain my--my withdrawals.

Adam: (Chuckles)

Sharon: (Chuckles) (Normal voice) Hey, nice watch.

Adam: (Normal voice) Why, thank you very much.

Sharon: What, is it a gift to yourself?

Adam: Yeah.

Sharon: (Chuckles)

Adam: No, it was from my mother. Uh, it was a college graduation present. She saved the entire time I was at school.

Sharon: Wow that shows the kind of faith she had in you. Just think of how proud that she would be right now, knowing that her son is running Newman Enterprises alongside his brother.

Adam: Yeah, I have Nick to thank for, uh, his right hook. I owe it all to him.

Sharon: (Chuckles) It was Victor's call. He wouldn't have put you in charge of his company unless he had the same faith in you that your mother had. We don't have to hide our relationship anymore.

Adam: Is that what this is? A relationship?

Sharon: I don't know. I guess so. What do you think? (Chuckles)

Michael: Hello.

Sharon: Oh, hi, Michael.

Michael: Hello. Funny seeing you here. I had the impression that you were chomping at the bit to get into the executive suite.

Adam: Yeah, I understand why you think that, Michael. But, uh, last time my dad put me in charge, I was a little overeager. It won't happen this time.

Michael: Mm. That's very reassuring. Enjoy your meal.

Michael: Hey. Mwah.

Lauren: Hi.

Michael: (Yawns)

Lauren: (Chuckles) Oh, Honey.

Michael: Oh, sorry.

Lauren: You're so cute when you're groggy.

Michael: Thanks for letting me sleep in.

Lauren: Well, you really needed it after that long night of work and then after all that time we spent digging, literally, at the county dump.

Michael: Let's not advertise that. I don't want other clients thinking that's part of my regular services.

Lauren: (Chuckles) Okay, we can, um, we can tell people we spent our anniversary at a wildlife sanctuary.

Michael: (Shudders)

Lauren: It wasn't that bad.

Michael: I'm still hearing the sound of skittering little feet.

Lauren: Yeah. Yeah. Rats... (Clicks tongue) I hate 'em. I mean, in their natural habitat, you know, its one thing, but--

Michael: Yeah, just not in gift boxes.

Lauren: Or in my store.

Michael: What? Uh, give us a minute. Your store? A rat?

Lauren: Well, not anymore, thank goodness. The exterminator came. And guess what he said? It wasn't feral. It was from a pet shop.

Michael: Who discovered him?

Lauren: I did, and it was right after I had a discussion with Ryder about rat number one.

Michael: Can Mr. Callahan account for his whereabouts in this timeframe?

Lauren: No, and I'm pretty sure I saw him leaving the boutique right before my little friend made his appearance.

Michael: He's going down.

Lauren: Michael--

Michael: Breakfast will wait.

Lauren: Wha-- (Sighs)

Ryder: Kevin, confronting Deacon is a terrible idea.

Kevin: Look, the cops are gonna track down the third man now that they have the new evidence. If Deacon's smart, he'll cut himself a deal and start naming names.

Ryder: He's never gonna do that.

Kevin: It almost sounds like you don't want him to.

Ryder: Of course not.

Kevin: Good. Good. Then get out of my way.

Ryder: Listen... I don't think Jana's gonna like this.

Jana: Like what?

Kevin: (Sighs) I just think if we tell Deacon about what we found last night--

Jana: Deacon?

Kevin: Yeah, make him realize that it's in his best interest--

Jana: No, absolutely not.

Kevin: (Sighs)

Phyllis: They should have already released you.

Daniel: Michael says that he thinks he can get the bail hearing for tomorrow.

Amber: They could have at least put you in protective custody.

Daniel: Don't worry. I know how to watch my back. I promise I'll stay out of the weight room.

Phyllis: That's not funny.

Daniel: (Chuckles) Funny, ha. Oh, you want comedy? Guess who's my new cellmate? Billy Abbott.

Phyllis: Oh, please don't talk to him. Don't talk to him.

Daniel: I'm not gonna talk to him.

Phyllis: He's gonna put it in my--well, his magazine-- his magazine now.

Daniel: I'm not gonna talk to him.

Man: Out of time.

Daniel: See you tomorrow?

Amber: Love you.

Daniel: Love you, too.

Phyllis: All right, tomorrow--it's a date. Don't stand us up.

Daniel: (Groans) Listen, uh, thank you for lookin' out for her. It means a lot to me.

[Phyllis remembering]

Phyllis: This is the deal-- I won't give this phone to the feds if you take Amber and leave town.

Phyllis: I'm a mom. I'm your mom. I'll do whatever it takes.

Daniel: You're the best.

Man: Let's go.

Daniel: (Sighs) Yep. (Sighs)

Billy: Okay, what are the odds that you're gonna get me out of here today?

Rafe: What are the odds you'll reveal your source?

Billy: I shouldn't have to. The legal precedent's on my side.

Rafe: The judge isn't bound by that.

Billy: Fine, but the new shield law--

Rafe: Proposed law, Billy.

Billy: The new shield law should protect journalists from having to testify.

Rafe: In certain circumstances. The judge still has plenty of leeway here, uh, given the fact that he doesn't even consider you to be a real journalist.

Billy: Yeah, that's right. I'm a pornographer. This is ridiculous. He's gotta know this is gonna get overturned.

Rafe: What he knows is that he can keep you in here for a long time away from your business, away from your family, Billy. Is it worth it to you?

Billy: (Sighs)

Rafe: All you gotta do is let them know who leaked the grand jury testimony, and you can end this whole thing today, right now.

Billy: No, I'm not givin' in. You can tell him that.

Rafe: (Sighs) All right.

Daniel: (Sighs)

Daniel: (Sighs)

Billy: How are you doin'?

Daniel: Oh, I'm just peachy.

Billy: Man, you know what? Most people would be happy to have a friend in here.

Daniel: Oh, is that what we are?

Billy: (Chuckles) Okay, what's got you all torqued up, Buddy?

Daniel: Gee, I don't know, Billy. Maybe the fact that you promised to maintain the standards over at "Restless Style," and then you turn around and you use it as a weapon against Victoria, the only person that was ever brave enough to take on Deacon Sharpe.

Billy: Oh, she took him on, all right.

Daniel: She knew what she was risking. She still told the truth 'cause she knew it was gonna come out regardless. She still did what she had to do. The woman's got guts, which is a whole hell of a lot more than I can say for you, my friend.

Billy: You know, Danny, I wouldn't pick sides on this one, unless you want to get caught in the cross fire.

Nick: Yeah, Connie, I need to see the contracts from National Air right away. Yeah, check with legal. They'll have the updated version. Okay, thanks.

(Knock on door)

Jack: Morning. You got a minute?

Nick: Barely. (Sighs) Something new with the Chancellor I.P.O.?

Jack: No, this is personal.

Nick: What do you got?

Jack: Sharon and Adam.

Nick: (Sighs)

Jack: Yeah, that was my reaction, too. Now what are we gonna do about it?

Amber: I need something else to focus on. A surprise party to welcome Daniel home.

Phyllis: Yeah, that's a good idea.

Amber: You want to help me plan it? Hmm?

Phyllis: Uh, no, you go ahead and plan it. I have to get to work.

Amber: Okay. Oh, you know, Phyllis, um, you know if anything good has come from this mess, it's the way you're treating me now. It's like we're in this together. Thank you.

Phyllis: It's the least I can do.

Amber: Okay. Bye.

(Cell phone rings)

Deacon: Hello?

Phyllis: Are you alone?

Deacon: Not for long, assuming our deal is still on.

Phyllis: Yeah, it's still on.

Jana: Oh, Kev. You updated the mailing list.

Ryder: Oh, that-- that was me.

Jana: Oh. (Clears throat) Thank you.

Ryder: I hope it's not a problem.

Jana: No, it's very, uh, thoughtful, actually.

Amber: So he's sucking up to you now that Kevin's stopped defending him, hmm?

Jana: (Scoffs) I've given up trying to understand that man.

Kevin: I haven't. That's why he still works here and lives with us. (Sighs) I'm trying to figure out what he's up to.

Amber: Hmm. For a second, I thought you meant you haven't given up on him. Like, he might just turn around and act like a real brother someday, hmm?

Kevin: That doesn't seem very likely, does it?

Sharon: Nick and Michael have been through a lot together.

Adam: Oh, look, its fine. I have a long way to go to earn people's trust back. I just--I'll do it, though. You'll see.

Sharon: I'm sure you will.

Adam: I wonder if someday, I'll win Nick over.

Sharon: That would be a trick.

Adam: (Chuckles)

Sharon: (Chuckles)

Adam: Look, I don't mind butting heads with him, but I-I do feel pretty bad about the two of you-- the tension I'm causing.

Sharon: Don't, because it's not your fault. Nick-- the way he's been acting lately, I don't know. Maybe it's just stress because he's trying to fill Victor's shoes.

Adam: Mm, yeah, well, I mean, it's--it's easy to take it out on people. I-I've been there.

Sharon: Yes, but we are not going back, because we've learned from our mistakes in the past, and now we've reinvented ourselves.

Adam: (Sighs) Two of a kind, huh?

Sharon: Maybe that's why we get along so well. Let 'em look.

Jack: We gotta put a stop to this thing before Sharon gets hurt.

Nick: I tried telling her what a mistake it was. It didn't get me anywhere.

Jack: I didn't even know they knew each other. How did this happen?

Nick: (Sighs) Hell if I know, Jack. Connie, National Air. Please. I'm waiting.

Jack: I understand where Sharon wouldn't want to hear this from us, of all people, but we're the ones that know what a snake Adam is. It makes me sick to my stomach watching him manipulate her. I'm sure he's rubbing it in your face every chance he gets.

Nick: (Sighs) And then some.

Jack: Yeah, well, we gotta find some way to get through to Sharon then.

Nick: Okay, you just gotta stop right there, all right? You're gonna have to do this on your own. I'm done involving myself in Sharon's business.

Kevin: So is Daniel for sure getting a bail hearing tomorrow?

Amber: Well, Michael said the odds are good. The, um, the ev--

Amber: (Whispering) The evidence that you guys found in the landfill really strengthens his case.

Jana: God, I have a terrific idea. How about a surprise party?

Amber: Yeah, yeah, yeah. We could do it at our place.

Jana: Okay.

Kevin: Not here?

Amber: Can you promise he wouldn't come?

Jana: Well, that shouldn't be a problem, right?

Michael: Where's Ryder?

Lauren: He's right there.

Kevin: Why? What's going on?

Michael: For you-- a restraining order. You go near my family again, you go to jail.

Billy: You know what? We're gonna be here for a while. We might as well make the best of it.

Daniel: What's your angle?

Billy: I don't have an angle, Danny.

Daniel: (Sighs) Of course you do, man. Everybody knows Billy Abbott's always got an angle. It's what makes you so popular.

Billy: Says the guy who's in here for murder. I guess that puts you on everybody's a-list, huh?

Daniel: As a matter of fact, it does. I mean, maybe you've noticed my string of visitors. Where are all your friends? Where's your family?

Billy: I'm not here to socialize. I'm here to stand up for a principle. I-I don't expect you to understand that. You're on the Newmans' good side. Victoria--well, she loves you, and... (Silly voice) "Papa Nick's" gonna come, and he's gonna bail you right out. (Normal voice) But one of these guys burns you one day? Oh, ho.

Daniel: Whoa, whoa, "One of these guys burns me"? What are you talkin' about? What are you trying to say to me, huh? What, do you think that I'm not upset that Colleen's dead? I guess I didn't love her, right? O-or when my little sister died, I-I was just fine with that, and my mom and Nick-- they were cool with that, too. We all got burned, okay? But Victor-- he's clear across the ocean. Everybody's tryin' to get over it except for you-- Billy Abbott, "The noble avenger." You know, it's such a crock, man. You're just a jackass who's burned every bridge in your life trying to prove a point. And you know who else started like that? Victor Newman.

Jack: Look, Sharon is just getting back on her feet again. If Adam does what we know he's gonna do, what's that gonna do to Sharon?

Nick: She's a big girl. She makes her own decisions.

Jack: Sharon doesn't know what she's dealing with. She's never seen him with his claws out. We have.

Nick: (Sighs) So what if she doesn't want to listen?

Jack: Then we use more than words.

Nick: I already tried that. I punched him.

Jack: Yeah, so I heard.

Nick: Then you also heard how that turned out for me.

Jack: Yeah, how he finagled it into a promotion? Yeah, look, if Victor is fool enough to trust that weasel again, he deserves exactly what he gets. Sharon doesn't deserve this. We have to stop this now.

Nick: Okay, okay. What do you suggest we do? Get Adam to take the fall for a crime you committed, like forging a diary, or framing my father for murder?

Jack: I can't imagine he'd ever fall for that again.

Nick: I mean, you're not even trying to hide it anymore. You were behind that diary.

Jack: You're damn right I was, and I would do it again, only this time, I'd make sure Adam didn't get off so easy.

Nick: Oh, Adam got off easy? What about you?

Jack: (Sighs) Thanking me.

Nick: What?

Jack: That diary landed Adam in jail. That's as close as anyone has gotten to getting him out of our lives.

Nick: It also brought Patty into our lives, Jack, because my dad was so hell-bent on getting revenge on you.

Jack: So is Adam, and not just me. No, that's why he's romancing Sharon. He gets a two-for-one deal. He gets to both of us.

Nick: All the more reason for us to just back away. He will lose interest.

Jack: Back--back away? Are you ser-- have you seen him with her?

Nick: Yes, I have.

Jack: He's giving this everything he's got. We have to do the same thing.

Nick: Okay, you do what you feel like you need to do. I have a wife and family who needs my full attention.

Jack: Your wife knows exactly what we're dealing with in Adam. I know she doesn't want you jumping in to save Sharon, but you gotta talk to her. Nick, we have to do something now before we find Sharon in another asylum.

Nick: Forget it, all right? I'm not going in on this scheme with you, or any other one you have.

Jack: Look, this is not a scheme. It--it--it's an intervention.

Nick: Look, all these games that you and Adam and my dad like to play-- they're not my thing. I want no part of it. I'm sure you think you're protecting Sharon, the same way you thought you were protecting Colleen and Ashley.

Jack: Hey, watch it.

Nick: You need to know when to walk away.

Jack: I'll remember you said that when Adam's through with Sharon and she's left picking up the shards of her self-esteem.

Nick: Jack! Jack, walk away. Connie, I need the damn National Air file right now.

Adam: You looking for this?

Nick: What are you doing with that?

Adam: I had a few suggestions.

Nick: That's my deal, not yours.

Adam: Well, actually, it's ours, since we're partners now. My notes are in red. Do we have any problems with that?

Nick: (Sighs) Nope.

Adam: Great. Give me a call when you're done.

Kevin: How can you be sure it was Ryder?

Michael: Lauren saw him leaving the store right before the power went out and the rat showed up.

Kevin: Saw him leaving? Like from behind? Well, then you can't be sure it was Ryder.

Lauren: There are too many coincidences.

Ryder: Well, I guess I'm out of a job.

Michael: That's up to Kevin and Jana. But you are to stay at least 500 yards away from our workplaces, our home, or anywhere else we happen to be outside of Crimson Lights.

Ryder: You think it's such a hardship, Michael? It's a relief. Now I don't have to suffer your abuse.

Michael: "Abuse"?

Lauren: (Scoffs)

Ryder: Of course, you don't see it that way. No, to Michael Baldwin, physical assault, making somebody feel like dirt, it's all part of the game. You know what-- you know what the worst part is? That I-I actually acted like it wasn't that big of a deal. That's how I was brought up. Just take it and take it and take it. I just always fall into the same trap.

Michael: Consider yourself freed.

Ryder: I do.

Michael: Kevin. Don't let him suck you in again.

Kevin: I'm just going to talk to him.

Lauren: That speech was for your benefit.

Jana: Kev, please. Could you just-- just consider-- you know, maybe you're the one who's putting up with too much here, hmm?

Ryder: You want me gone?

Kevin: No.

Ryder: Does that mean you believe in me then?

Kevin: No. It is true what you said, though. Victims of abuse-- we suck at boundaries, put up with all kinds of crap. We also know how to strike back, though, don't we? When we think nobody's looking.

Sharon: Jack, hi.

Jack: Hi, yourself. You up for a visit?

Sharon: Sure, come on in. What is the reason for this good mood?

Jack: Well, I am about to make a brilliant business move, that is, if you say yes.

Sharon: Yes to what?

Jack: To my job offer. Anyway, this Tucker McCall is a big believer in bold marketing. With him coming on board, it's a perfect time to convince Katherine to have a more aggressive sales campaign. You know, really broaden our reach.

Sharon: Well, that's, uh, that's a pretty bold move in this economy.

Jack: Yeah, everybody else is scaling back. We're swooping in. That's where you come in. I'm gonna need you to travel all over the country.

Sharon: Jack--

Jack: No, this is-- this is like Beauty of Nature, just a whole lot bigger.

Sharon: That sounds like a lot of time out of town.

Jack: I mean, if you're worried about Noah, I'd be happy to look after him while you're gone.

Sharon: I'm sure Nick would be happy to help, too.

Jack: No doubt.

Sharon: Did you two plan this together?

Jack: What?

Sharon: Nick asks Adam to go out of town, and then you ask me. "And never the Twain shall meet?"

Jack: Farthest thing from my mind.

Sharon: I'd like you to leave now, Jack.

Jack: Sharon, I wish you'd reconsider this. This is a golden opportunity for you to restart your career.

Sharon: Come back when you have an actual honest job opportunity for me, not just another chance to manipulate my whole life.

Jack: (Sighs)

Sharon: Thanks, okay? Bye.

Jack: (Sighs)

Man: How are the ribs?

Daniel: Uh... could be better. (Sniffles) But I guess you already know that, don't you?

Man: Trying to make a point?

Daniel: I, uh, thought I just did.

Billy: I'm gonna wait on that phone call. Hey, boys. Who's got the remote? I want to watch some TV.

Man: Why don't you go make that phone call now?

Billy: Oh, don't get upset. I know I'm not interrupting any deep conversation. This guy here's antisocial.

Man: So am I.

Billy: Yeah? Oh. Really, Buddy? Really? You gonna beat up on a guy who just got out of the hospital? That's not fun. That's not even a challenge. But I'll tell you what, really, I'll tell you what-- I hope that's your plan, 'cause I gotta tell you, it's been a long time since I've grabbed somebody by his throat and beat his face in. (Exhales quickly)

Daniel: Thank you.

Billy: Yeah, no problem.

Daniel: (Clears throat)

Phyllis: Hey, Baby. I've hardly seen you all day. How are you holding up?

Nick: (Sighs) I've had better days.

Phyllis: Yeah?

Nick: How's Daniel?

Phyllis: He's good. He's getting out soon.

Nick: That's all because of you.

Phyllis: There's a surprise party for him at Crimson Lights. Do you want to come? Nick? Nick?

Nick: Sorry.

Phyllis: I don't know what's going on between the two of you. You don't even have to tell me, okay? But you'd better work it out, or else the company is gonna suffer.

Nick: It's under control.

Phyllis: Yeah?

Nick: So I got a conference call.

Phyllis: All right, see you later.

Nick: Okay.

Adam: Phyllis?

Phyllis: Hey, Adam. What do you need?

Adam: Um, I just heard that Daniel is gonna be released, and I think that's great.

Phyllis: Yeah, it is. Thank you.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Phyllis: Nice watch.

Adam: Thanks.

Phyllis: I recognize it from the time that you called the press conference and said that you were taking over Newman. I-I guess it's not a coincidence that you're wearing the same watch today.

Adam: The fact is, um, I've earned the right to be here, Phyllis.

Phyllis: Picking a fight and running to your daddy-- is that earning the right?

Adam: (Sniffs) Very true.

Phyllis: Yeah?

Adam: Mm.

Phyllis: Mm.

Adam: Yeah, Nick gets riled up so easily. He is so sensitive about Sharon dating other men.

Phyllis: (Exhales) Um, yeah, can you do me a favor? Can you clear my schedule? I need to take care of something. It's a family matter. Thanks.

Jack: So what can I do to help?

Daniel: (Sighs) You have already done that. Mom told me you were out there digging around in the trash with the rest of the crew.

Jack: Yeah, your mom's a force of nature, but you knew that.

Daniel: She definitely knows how to make things happen. It's a pretty amazing feeling, you know, for someone who grew up thinking that he has absolutely no one. And then one day, he just suddenly realizes he's got this whole extended family that's willing to do anything for him-- Newmans and Abbotts.

Jack: And don't forget Katherine Chancellor marching around in her fishing waders, an image I will not soon forget.

Daniel: (Laughs) I would have liked to have seen that. (Chuckles) You know, um, speaking of family, Billy's my cellmate.

Jack: Yeah, don't mention to him that I was here, okay?

Daniel: Jack, you gotta go at least talk to the kid. He needs you.

Jack: (Sighs)

Amber: Why is it so hard for Kevin to accept that Ryder's trouble?

Jana: (Sighs) You know, I think it's because he sees a bit of himself in Ryder. Oh, believe me, I know. But let me tell you, Amber, the day that he finds out that Ryder is truly hopeless-- God, it's gonna break Kevin's heart.

Ryder: Look, I'm sorry you're in this position of having to choose between your two brothers, but I'm not sorry about what I said back there. I had to stick up for myself.

Kevin: I get that.

Ryder: But you still don't believe me about the rats, all of it.

Kevin: I've believed in you before, Ryder, and I've been let down.

Ryder: Look, I already explained why I said what I did to the grand jury, a-and it turned out all right, right? I mean, Daniel's got his bail hearing tomorrow.

Kevin: Probably. (Sighs) There's gonna be a party here for him when he gets out.

Ryder: Great.

Kevin: I don't want you to come.

(Doorbell rings)

Sharon: Hi. What are you doing here?

Phyllis: (Chuckles) You know why I'm here.

Sharon: No, I really don't.

Phyllis: You know... (Sighs) I thought we were past the games.

Sharon: Past what games? You're talking in riddles.

Phyllis: You and Adam-- you and Nick's brother.

Sharon: Oh, my gosh, I can't believe this. I thought you would be the one person who would be happy that I'm moving on.

Phyllis: Is that what you're doing, Sharon? Really? Are you moving on?

Sharon: Yes, and it's none of your business, and it's none of Nick's business.

Phyllis: Oh, oh, and you're just shocked that Nick would react this way. You're shocked, aren't you? You predicted it.

Sharon: My relationship with Adam has nothing to do with Nick.

Phyllis: Oh, and it's just a coincidence that those two guys despise each other, right?

Sharon: Okay, you're gonna believe whatever you want to believe.

Phyllis: Okay, you know what? Say I'm wrong. That's fine. That's fine. I could be wrong, but if I were right-- if I were-- stop degrading yourself by dating this sleazeball. It's not working. It's not. Sharon, Nick is happy. A-actually, our--our marriage is stronger than it's ever been.

Sharon: Well, if that were true-- "If"-- then you wouldn't be here right now. And you certainly would not be on the warpath.

Phyllis: "On the warpath"? Um, well, this is not war. It's friendly advice.

Sharon: Oh, okay. Well, I have some friendly advice for you. Get out before I have you arrested again.

Phyllis: I think I made my point.

Sharon: No, you didn't, not the one you intended.

Phyllis: Hey. Hey, congratulations on that "Being your own woman" thing. Good for you. I think you-- you made it, um, a month.

Billy: Ah. Well, if I'd known you were coming, I would have cleaned up a little bit.

Jack: I wanted to make sure you were still alive.

Billy: Oh, I'm sorry to disappoint you, Jack.

Jack: What more is it gonna take for you to finally get the message?

Kevin: I know this isn't gonna make any sense to you.

Jana: Try me.

Kevin: I understand why Michael and Lauren are suspicious of Ryder. He's been secretive, defensive.

Jana: But?

Kevin: But when he stood up to them the way he did, I was really proud of him.

Jana: Kev, you do realize that the way he handled himself was exactly the way that you would have coached him.

Kevin: Mm-hmm, which could mean that he's playing me, or... or it could mean that everything that I went through as a kid wasn't for nothing, that maybe something good is coming out of it. You know, if I-- if I can help him break the chain of abuse, and, um, I would really like to believe that.

Jana: But... (Sighs) What if-- what if we get to a point where it's just impossible to believe?

Kevin: Well, then-- then I'll cut my losses. I will. He will be out of our home, out of a job, and out of our lives.

Jana: Okay. Oh, God, you're not gonna talk to him, are you?

Kevin: No, I'm gonna stay here with my wife.

Amber: Definitely. Definitely the cream cheese frosting. Yeah. And can you write on it just, "Welcome home, Daniel"? Thanks.

Deacon: It looks to me like somebody's counting their jailbirds before they hatch.

Amber: Oh, you haven't heard-- new evidence in Daniel's case. We expect him home tomorrow.

Deacon: Wha-- (Hits table) That's terrific.

Amber: Mm-hmm.

Deacon: That is great news. Were--were we just planning a little celebration just now? Yeah?

Amber: Oh, yeah, two, actually, yeah-- one for his friends and family, and one for just the two of us.

Deacon: Ouch.

Amber: Not like you ever stood a chance. We both know there's only one man I belong with, and tomorrow night, I will be back in his arms.

(Cell phone chimes)

Deacon: (Chuckles) Oh, Amber, Honey, you have no idea how right you are.

Daniel: (Sighs) I don't get it. Kevin's gotta be the most cynical guy I know.

Lauren: Right. But it also runs in the family.

Daniel: So why can't he see the signs when it comes to Ryder?

Lauren: I mean, for Kevin, looking at Ryder is like looking in the mirror. You know, the histories are so similar.

Daniel: (Scoffs) Yeah, or so says Ryder.

Michael: Thank you.

Lauren: Exactly. Thank you.

Michael: Good news. Your bail hearing has been set for tomorrow.

Daniel: Thank you, Michael.

Michael: Has Deacon's buddy still been bothering you?

Daniel: Uh, yeah, he tried. Billy Abbott got in his face, though.

Lauren: (Chuckles) You've got to be kidding.

Daniel: No. I think I really owe the guy one. Is there anything you can do, Michael? Pull some strings?

Michael: I'll look into it.

Billy: You really need to update your play list, Jack. All I'm getting is all disapproval all the time.

Jack: That the same attitude you cop with the judge?

Billy: Yeah, well, that guy had it in for me before I even got into the courtroom.

Jack: Wow, how convenient.

Billy: What's convenient, Jack?

Jack: You have somebody else to blame for all of this. Billy, I know you want to pick a fight with someone right now. In this place, that could get you in a lot of trouble.

Billy: You washed your hands of me, right? When does that start?

Jack: Anger is not your friend. I know it feels like it is right now because it shields you from all the grief you're feeling.

Billy: You have a captive audience. You're gonna pontificate? Is that what you want to do?

Jack: The more you go on like this, the more you're gonna lose. That's a fact. That's not pontificating. That's the voice of reason talking.

Billy: What--whatever. Rafe, perfect timing. What'd the judge say?

Rafe: He's not budging, Billy. If you want to get out of here any time soon, y-you're gonna have to reveal your source.

Billy: That's not happening, so...

Jack: Thanks for all your effort, Rafe. I'm afraid my brother's a lost cause.

(Front door opens)

Sharon: Adam.

Adam: Hope you don't mind.

Sharon: Uh, no. I'm--that's why I-I told you where the spare key was. Did you have the same kind of day I had?

Adam: Why? What happened?

Sharon: Well, Jack came over here with this ploy to get me out of town.

Adam: (Sighs) Away from me.

Sharon: Yes. And then Phyllis stopped by and accused me of seeing you just so I could make Nick jealous.

Adam: (Sighs) She was in a foul mood this morning. I am sorry that you had to deal with that.

Sharon: Mm. She makes me wish I were back in the psych ward.

Adam: Hey.

Sharon: (Laughs)

Adam: We can do better than that, if we want to get away from it all.

Sharon: Oh, wouldn't that be nice? We could just get on a plane and go to a tropical island where no one knows us and they leave us alone.

Adam: That would be incredible. I was gonna take you to lunch.

Sharon: Well, I'm not hungry.

Adam: Well, then...

Sharon: Oh, wait, um, there's something I have to do first.

Adam: Okay. You can find me in the shower.

Nick: Where'd you go? I was looking for you.

Phyllis: (Sighs) Uh, I had an appointment.

(Cell phone rings)

Nick: You need something?

Sharon: Yes, actually. Could you rein in your wife? She was just over here waving her insecurity like some kind of freak flag accusing me of trying to ruin your marriage. Nick, it's my life. Whoever I date, it's no one else's business.

Nick: Couldn't agree with you more.

Sharon: Good. So can you explain that to her? I mean it, Nick. I'm done.

Phyllis: You done?

Nick: Yeah. So who'd you say your appointment was with?

Phyllis: Carson Jones.

Nick: Carson. I thought that was tomorrow.

Phyllis: We moved it up. Who was on the phone, Baby?

Nick: Just the guy from National Air. He wants to make a few revisions to the contract.

Phyllis: Anything I should know?

Nick: I got it covered.

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

Patty: What else did I do?

Adam: You didn't hear? Tucker McCall, he got all 25%.

Victoria: Well, J.T. works for Mr. McCall, and he didn't say anything about it.

Nick: You gotta do what's best for you and your son.
