Daniel: Probably the same people that buy "Restless Style."
Billy: When are they springin' you, smart-ass?
Daniel: I'm just waitin' on the paperwork, brother. Damn hearing took forever.
Billy: But you're gettin' bailed, right?
Daniel: Oh, yeah. Can't wait to get the hell out of this place.
Billy: Yeah, I know how you feel.
Daniel: You got no idea how I feel. You--you can walk through that door-- any one of these doors-- any time that you want. All you gotta do is hand over then name of your informant to the judge.
Billy: Yeah, and then I'd have to compromise my principles, man.
Daniel: Oh, "Compromise." Come on. What are you talking about, Billy? Who are you trying to kid?
Billy: Oh, come on. Go ahead. Do it again. Tell me what an unethical bastard I am. Look, this means something to me, and it's my right under the first amendment not to reveal my source, and I will stay in here in this rat hole before I give in to that bully judge.
Chloe: You know, if Billy finds out that I gave that juror's name to the judge, I swear, he's going to kill me.
Chance: Hey. Hey.
Chance: I guarantee you, your name is not gonna be leaked, okay?
Chloe: Oh, just like the grand jury testimony wasn't supposed to be leaked?
Chloe: Maybe I just never should have said anything to the authorities, kept my mouth shut. (Sighs)
Chance: Chloe, stop. Look, doing the right thing isn't always easy.
Chloe: Yeah, I know. You're telling me.
Chance: But you did it, okay? You followed your convictions.
Chance: I couldn't be prouder of you.
Chloe: Thank you.
Chance: You're welcome. (Sighs) Look, if you don't want to go out, we can always stay in.
Chance: It's not a problem.
Chloe: Are you kidding me? Sit here and watch me go crazy? No, I need to get out, get Billy off my mind, have a good time. Besides, I told Amber that we would drop by and say hi since Daniel's getting out, you know?
Chance: Okay. Well, then... let's roll.
Chloe: Okay. Just tell me that I'm doing the right thing, right? I'm doing the right thing.
Lauren: I thought we agreed to skip our anniversary celebration this year.
Lauren: You're amazing.
Michael: If you will recall the exact conversation, Mrs. Baldwin...
Michael: You had raised the issue, and then Fenmore had a serious complication with a juice box, and I was unable to respond.
Lauren: Oh, I see how this is gonna go. All right, my husband the lawyer.
Michael: I will never... (Whispers) Miss an opportunity to spoil you.
Lauren: Oh, that's so sweet. Thanks.
Michael: (Normal voice) (Chuckles)
Lauren: So maybe one year, we could actually celebrate on the day of our anniversary.
Michael: Oh, now you're just talking crazy-nuts.
Lauren: I know. I know. But who am I to complain? You know why? 'Cause I see jewelry boxes, and everything was all right with my world. So where should I begin?
Michael: Oh, well, wait. Leave those till after dinner. Anticipation's half the fun.
Michael: Here is to many more years of wedded bliss.
Lauren: I feel the same way.
Michael: Come here, wife.
Lauren: (Chuckles) (Sighs)
Jack: All hail the new robber baron of Genoa City.
Jack: You know what? I can now see his face without going ballistic.
Emily: Pretty upset yesterday-- cutting you out of the Chancellor stock deal.
Jack: Well, you know, I had a good talk with my sister Ashley. She reminded me when I focus on things I can't have, I don't see what's right in front of me. There will always be new stock offerings, but a beautiful, intelligent woman with style and charm doesn't come along—
Phyllis: Hey, um...
Phyllis: Hi, Jack.
Jack: You know Emily, right?
Emily: Hello, Phyllis.
Phyllis: Hello. Um, I wanted to ask you something if you would stick around.
Jack: Why? What's going on?
Phyllis: We're doing a little impromptu celebration for Daniel.
Jack: Wait, he's getting out?
Phyllis: Yeah, on bail. I'm going to pick him up right now, so can you--you stay, please?
Jack: You don't mind?
Emily: Not at all.
Phyllis: O-okay, yeah, I'll see you-- I'll see you later then.
Amber: It's like a comp-- probably like a--just--
Kevin: Hey, what time are you leaving to go pick up Daniel?
Phyllis: I'm--I'm doing it right now.
Amber: Oh, I should come with you.
Phyllis: Yeah, oh, come here for a second.
Amber: Okay. Okay. Yeah?
Phyllis: (Quietly) I would, um, I would really love it if you just stayed here and used your creative juices to celebrate, you know? And--and-- and, you know, decorate things and make everybody excited. Don't--don't let them do anything. You do it all.
Amber: Oh, okay. Okay, sure.
Phyllis: You got it?
Phyllis: All right.
Jana: Hey, Amber?
Jana: Should I make a "Welcome home" sign for Daniel?
Amber: No, no, I'll do it.
Jana: You sure?
Amber: Yeah, yeah, yeah. And you know what else I think we need? I think we need, um, maybe, like, giant streamers.
Jana: Oh, yeah.
Amber: Yeah, big streamers and stuff, and maybe we...
Deacon: It's all set-- the alley behind Jimmy's in one hour. And be prepared to take care of business. That proves nothing. I'm certainly not gonna go to prison for it.
Phyllis: No, you probably won't go to prison with that-- not if you do exactly what I tell you.
Amber: ...Redo some of the Christmas stuff to kind of make it seem "Daniel homecoming-Y." Yeah.
Jana: I agree. I'm gonna make my cookies.
Kevin: Ooh, yeah.
Amber: Oh, yeah, make some cookies.
Jana: Yeah? Okay.
Phyllis: You set?
Deacon: Yeah, I'm all packed. (Sniffles) When do I get that phone?
Phyllis: You'll get the phone when you tell me that Amber is out of town. Do you understand that? You'll text me with it.
Deacon: (Sighs) Yeah.
Emily: You look like you're about to break out dancing.
Jack: This was my dad's favorite song.
Emily: I bet Christmas was a big deal at the Abbott family.
Jack: Oh, it was the biggest day of the year. I can still smell pine once or hear this song, and I'm immediately transported back to a happy childhood Christmas.
Emily: Mm. (Chuckles)
Jack: How about you?
Emily: Me? Uh, when I was a kid, Christmas was magical. Unfortunately, my line of work sucks the fun out of the holiday. Statistically, this is the time of year when suicide and depression reach its peak. So I smell a Christmas tree or walk past a holiday window in the store-- it, uh, reminds me of all my clients who struggle with the season.
Jack: What a shame.
Jack: How sad that there are that many lonely people in the world.
Emily: I didn't mean to bring you down. (Chuckles) But, to me, Christmas is staying glued to my cell phone, praying it doesn't ring.
Jack: That is wrong. That is not fair. Everyone should enjoy Christmas.
Emily: It comes with my job. Is there any sugar? Any--
Jack: Uh, no, just sweetener, I think.
Emily: Okay, I'm gonna go get some sugar. I'll be right back.
Jack: Yeah, this is Mr. Abbott. Uh, I need you to do a couple of things for me.
Phyllis: Hey. Hey, are you ready to go?
Daniel: Oh, hell, yes. (Moans) Oh, careful. (Chuckles)
Phyllis: Oh, sorry.
Daniel: Thought you weren't gonna make it in time.
Billy: Hi, Phyllis.
Phyllis: (Sighs) Hey, Billy.
Daniel: Where's Amber?
Phyllis: Um, she's at Crimson Lights. Um--
Daniel: Um, so I'm free? I can go?
Phyllis: Yeah, we just have to get your personal effects, but you can go.
Daniel: Okay, um, just, uh...
Phyllis: Let's-- let's get out of here.
Daniel: Give me a sec.
Phyllis: All right.
Daniel: Hey, um, thank you for everything you helped with yesterday.
Billy: Eh, no problem, buddy.
Daniel: Well, look, man, if you need anything, just let me know if I can do anything for you.
Phyllis: What was that about?
Daniel: (Stammers) Nothing. Come on. It's just guy stuff, you know? (Growls and laughs) Come on, let's get out of here. I want to go kick-start my marriage.
Amber: You know, the letters, they--they don't pop out enough. I'm gonna do it over.
Jana: All right.
Kevin: What? I thought it looked fine.
Amber: No, it didn't.
Kevin: Well, look, Daniel's gonna be here any minute.
Daisy: What? D-Daniel's getting out?
Jana: Yeah, on bail, thanks to Eden getting that gym bag out of that smelly dump.
Daisy: (Sighs) I've never smelled something so disgusting than that place...
Jana: I know, right?
Daisy: In my whole life.
Jana: Do you fancy a cup of tea?
Daisy: Mm, yeah.
Jana: Yeah? Let's go.
Chloe: Hi. Hey, we're here.
Jana: Hi. Welcome. How are you?
Chance: Hey, everybody. How you doing?
Kevin: Good to see you guys.
Chloe: Yeah, how you doing?
Chance: Good to see you.
Amber: Oh, hi! I'm so glad you guys made it! Ooh! Ooh!
Chloe: Hi. I would never miss your party.
Chance: How are you?
Amber: Oh, you brought Chance, so you guys are definitely, um--
Chloe: Yeah, we're something. We're definitely something.
Chance: (Clears throat)
Amber: You don't know how happy I am that Daniel's getting out of that hellhole tonight.
Amber: Sorry. I forgot about Billy.
Chloe: Yeah, well, you know, he's just really stubborn. And I tried to get him to talk to the judge and tell him what he knows, but he would rather play the martyr.
Amber: (Sighs) You know, it's hard to believe that Billy would actually choose to stay locked up. I bet Delia really misses her dad, huh?
Chloe: Yeah, well, before this, you know, she saw him every day. She doesn't understand why he's disappeared, so that's why I had to do something. I had to do something about it. Really--
Chance: Do you, uh, need help hanging the sign here, by any chance?
Amber: Yeah. I-I need a better marker. I'll be right back.
Chance: (Sighs) I thought you wanted to keep quiet about turning Billy's informant in.
Chloe: Amber is my friend. I trust her.
Chance: And you think she won't tell Daniel, who won't turn around and tell his best friend Kevin, who won't turn around and tell Jana? Chloe.
Chloe: (Sighs) Point taken. I know. Billy can never, never know, ever. (Sighs)
Victoria: Jack on the queen.
Billy: (Chuckles) Daniel's not here.
Victoria: Oh, well, that's okay, because I didn't come to visit Daniel. I thought I'd see how you're getting on in your new accommodations.
Billy: The mattress could be a bit firmer.
Victoria: Ohh, are you not sleeping well?
Billy: Oh, no, like a baby.
Victoria: You wouldn't if you had a conscience.
Billy: Hey, look, you're the one who chucked me under the bus. If you're here for an apology, it's a little late.
Victoria: Why would I do that? You're getting everything that you deserve. I warned you not to mess with me, but you didn't take me seriously.
Lauren: (Laughs) I wish you could have seen the horrified look...
Lauren: On that woman's face. And Fen was so proud of himself. He just announced to the entire ladies' room, "Well, boys have peanuts!" (Laughs) It was so cute.
Lauren: (Laughs) Oh, it was so cute.
Michael: That boy's not right.
Lauren: Oh, yes, he is.
Michael: I gotta have a serious talk with him and set things straight.
Lauren: He's adorable, and believe me. Believe me, he has plenty of time to figure out all that stuff.
Michael: I just can't believe how fast he's growing up.
Lauren: I know.
Michael: Seems like we were married just yesterday.
Lauren: (Chuckles) The Colonnade room?
Lauren: The boiler exploding.
Michael: You in that wedding dress. You knocked my socks off.
Lauren: Hmm. You were pretty amazing yourself.
Michael: Aren't we the lucky ones...
Michael: To be married to such "Beauty-full" people?
Lauren: Aren't we?
Lauren: (Laughs) It's just the, um, outside influences that worry me. You know, the con artist fathers, the, uh, shady half brothers that show up unexpectedly, exploding yachts... let's see, what else? Oh, yeah, boxes of rats.
Michael: All right, forget the rats. No more rats. We have a restraining order against Ryder, and as for outside influences, "Love conquers all." You remember that one?
Lauren: I do, but...
Lauren: We've had some pretty close calls. You know, our honeymoon, the warehouse.
Michael: We are still standing.
Lauren: The only other time I felt this uncomfortable--
Michael: Don't. Don't say her name.
Lauren: I'm not gonna pretend that Sheila never existed. She ruined my life and my relationship with Scotty for many years.
Michael: Sheila is dead. There's no reason for you to go there.
Amber: A little bit higher. No, higher. Higher. Higher.
Amber: No, no, no, no. Lower. Lower. No, just--just--just--just--
Kevin: Amber! Amber!
Amber: Raise it a little bit.
Kevin: Amber, make up your mind, please.
Amber: It's not right. It is tilted! Okay, just--just--just bring it up a little on that side.
Kevin: No, I think that you're tilted.
Daniel: I think that it looks perfect.
Amber: Wha--aah! Oh!
Daniel: (Laughs) (Groans)
Amber: Mwah. Oh--oh, my God. I'm sorry! I forgot about your ribs. Oh, my God.
Daniel: It's okay. Come here.
Amber: Mm. (Laughs)
Kevin: All right. All right, enough. You're gonna scare away my customers.
Daniel: How you guys doing?
Jana: Welcome home. Good to see you.
Phyllis: Hey, Daniel, look who stuck around.
Jack: Hey, there. How you doing?
Daniel: I'm doing much better now, thank you. Whoa.
Jack: Oh, I'm sorry. Daniel Romalotti, Dr. Emily Peterson.
Emily: Hi, nice to meet you.
Daniel: Nice to meet you, too. I thought you were someone else there for a second.
Emily: I get that all the time.
Phyllis: Okay, everybody, eyes on me. Eyes on me right now. I just wanted to thank you all for coming to the dump--well, although you didn't, but, um... (Chuckles) Uh, thanks for your support uh, and finding the gym bag and, you know, helping my son get out of jail. I am absolutely thrilled... (Sighs) That he's home. And, um, just thank you very much. And I--I want to thank the love of his life. He's reunited with the love of his li--of his life, and I'm just very, very happy about that.
Daisy: Welcome home.
Daniel: Thank you.
Jana: You know, Daisy decided to lend a hand that night.
Daniel: Well, then I'm definitely putting you in the "Friend" category.
Amber: (Laughs) Yeah.
Daisy: Glad I could help.
Jack: Okay, so what was that about?
Amber: Oh, we need to celebrate.
Phyllis: What was what about?
Jack: Last I heard, you were miserable that Daniel was married to Amber.
Phyllis: Um, well, she loves my son, and I love her for that.
Jack: Hey, hey, hey, it's me you're talking to. Remember?
Phyllis: I had a change of heart. It's not impossible to have a change of heart.
Jack: Well, Em-Emily and I are on our way out of here. Um, we have plans.
Phyllis: Oh, okay. Thanks for sticking around.
Jack: Yeah. Hey, Daniel will get through this.
Phyllis: Oh, I know. We found the gym bag. He'll definitely get through this. Bye.
Emily: "Plans"? That's news to me.
Jack: Yeah, it's a little surprise. Come on.
Amber: I knew you'd be home soon. I just knew.
Kevin: I plan on renaming this "The Romalotti special."
Daniel: Oh, Brother.
Daniel: Thank you. You have no idea how much I missed your coffee. I literally had dreams about it.
Amber: You were supposed to be dreaming about your wife, Mister.
Daniel: Mmm. Hmm. (Chuckles)
Deacon: Yeah, it's Deacon. Listen, I just checked out of the club. I'm on my way.
Ryder: Where the hell are you going?
Emily: Where are you taking me?
Jack: Just a few more steps.
Emily: Mm-hmm. Can I open my eyes yet?
Jack: Not yet.
Emily: All right. (Sighs)
Emily: Oh, Jack, this is beautiful. What-- when did you put this together?
Jack: Oh, I made a couple calls from Crimson Lights. Now listen, if I guessed your shoe size wrong, I can have the right size skates sent over right away.
Emily: Oh, I love that you went to all this trouble, but my skating days are over.
Jack: Nonsense. We're gonna get you in touch with that little child inside of you again, but you have to give over. Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone.
Emily: Okay, okay. I'll trust you.
Jack: Put yourself in my hands.
Jack: I'm gonna give you back the spirit of Christmas.
Amber: Okay, that's good. (Chuckles)
Daisy: So if they found stuff in that gym bag that proved your story, why didn't they drop the charges?
Amber: Oh, they will.
Daniel: Yeah, Michael's on it.
Jana: Yep, the evidence in that bag will prove that Daniel is innocent, 'cause there was a third man in that alley.
Daniel: That's right.
Amber: Yes. Oh.
Kevin: We gotta--
Chloe: Hmm, so to those who were willing to go through other people's... stuff to find out the truth. And, uh, I hope you guys are on my side whenever I get in trouble.
Amber: Ahh, cheers to that.
Amber: Yeah, ditto, too.
Chance: You know, it floored me when I heard about what you did, Ms. Newman.
Phyllis: Uh, Phyllis. Phyllis.
Chance: Sorry. Phyllis. No, I mean, you could have spent weeks digging through there and found nothing.
Phyllis: Well, I wouldn't have given up.
Chance: Well, then obviously, you're a terrific mother.
Phyllis: Thank you.
Amber: (Laughs) I know. I know. She is amazing! (Squeals) (Giggles)
Phyllis: (Chuckles) Yeah, well, you know, anything for my kids, anything. And I love my son so much, and, um, his incredible, incredible wife, my daughter-in-law. Yeah, she is the best daughter-in-law anybody could have, the best, right? Here, to Amber.
Daniel: To Amber.
Jana: (Laughs) Yeah.
Amber: Yay, thanks.
Jana: (Quietly) God, when did the love fest start?
Amber: (Quietly) It's crazy, isn't it?
Jana: Enjoy the ride while it lasts.
Amber: I know.
Kevin: Um, does anybody need a refill?
Daisy: Oh, sure.
Kevin: Yeah? Okay.
Jana: Phyllis, take a seat.
Amber: Yeah. Yeah, sit down. Look at the cake.
Daniel: Hey, uh, where's Ryder?
Kevin: Oh, uh, I told him not to come. I didn't want him, uh, ruining my best friend's homecoming.
Deacon: I'm done here. I'm heading back to California.
Ryder: No, you can't do that. That's not part of the plan.
Deacon: Look, I'm gettin' off this little merry-go-round, Pal, before it crashes. See ya.
Ryder: My mom is not gonna like this.
Deacon: I told you before, I don't answer to her anymore.
Ryder: I am so over this. It's like everybody does what they damn well please, and while I get blamed for everything and get ordered around.
Deacon: Can I give you a little advice here? Just listen to what I'm saying. Stand up to that bitch. She has no power over you unless you give it to her.
Michael: My wife and I are having dinner here tonight.
Ryder: What has that got to do with me?
Michael: Under the terms of the restraining order, if you encounter either of us out in public, you turn around, and you walk away. Otherwise, you're in violation.
Billy: I know how the Newmans work. I saw the same bullying techniques in Victor when he dealt with Colleen, and, Honey, it's not gonna work here.
Victoria: It's not just me that you've hurt.
Billy: You know, you keep blaming me for your marriage falling apart. I didn't have anything to do with that. I didn't fabricate any lies. I printed the truth. And you think I'm being punished because I'm in here? Oh, Honey, my magazine is selling off the racks. My web site is getting more hits than it ever has before, and, you know, I have to thank you for that, because you made me a martyr, and it just turns out that people love that. Oh, oh, there's also a plus to this. I don't have to pick out a new suit every day for work, because I look good in orange.
Victoria: You know, I really hate to break it to you, but that image that you have of yourself as a hero is all in your head. Most people see you as a big jerk hiding behind the first amendment.
Billy: I'm gonna go to my grave with the name of my source, so if you're waiting for me to spill the beans, well, you can just leave. You're wasting your time. So go--go shopping. I don't know. Go fight with your husband. Go bite the heads off of small children, whatever it is that you Newmans do for kicks, but just go.
Victoria: Hey, I'm in no hurry to leave. I'm rather enjoying the sight of you behind bars. Oh, um, and while you're rotting away in here, you can think about this. The Newmans are off-limits.
Billy: (Chuckles) Princess, there is nothing that's off-limits. In fact, my readers, they expect me to print anything that you guys do out of order, so if I were you, if you don't want to end up in my magazine, I'd start living the life of a nun.
Victoria: You come at me again, and I will knock your teeth straight.
Billy: Yeah? Well, this could get real messy, Sweetheart.
Michael: I've called the police.
Ryder: Look, I didn't know you were gonna be here. I'm not hassling anybody. Just chill.
Lauren: Why don't you tell us what you were talking about with Deacon just now?
Michael: All right, why don't we go back to the table?
Lauren: I want to know. You said you're not working for him, but that looked like a very intense conversation.
Ryder: Why don't you mind your damn business?
Michael: Don't talk to my wife that way.
Lauren: Excuse me. When it's my family, it is my business!
Chance: Okay, okay, uh, Mr. Baldwin, can I get you guys to back up and just calm down?
Michael: We have a restraining order.
Chance: I know you have a restraining order against him. Let me handle this, please. I need you to go.
Ryder: Look, this is a public place. I wasn't bothering anybody.
Chance: Yes, I know that, and I've read the terms of the restraining order. You're in violation. Now either, "A," I can slap the handcuffs on you right now and walk you out of here, or you can go out on your own accord.
Michael: Thank you, Detective Chancellor.
(Cell phone beeps)
Emily: Well, it looks like you haven't skated in a while, either.
Jack: Oh, I'm gettin' better by the minute. In no time at all, I'll be doing flying sit spins. (Grunts)
Emily: Oh! But--y--
Emily: You got the "Sit" part down pat.
Jack: Ha ha. (Groans and grunts)
Emily: Did you hurt yourself?
Jack: (Breathing heavily) I think my dignity is bruised.
Jack: Hey, come on. You're not gonna get away without taking one spin out here.
Emily: Okay, okay. (Clears throat) Hold my hand. Yeah?
Jack: Yeah. Easy.
Emily: (Chuckles) Okay.
Jack: There you go.
Emily: Did you skate on here when you were a kid?
Jack: Oh, yeah, my sisters and I would race out here. Oh, you got it?
Emily: (Exhales) Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm.
Jack: Yep, I found myself face-first in a number of snowdrifts.
Emily: (Chuckles) Wow. I once knocked out my neighbor's front tooth with my hockey stick.
Jack: I'll try to keep my distance.
Jack: You're doing great.
Emily: Thank you. Okay. Ooh!
Jack: Oh, I got it. You know, it just makes me feel young and happy and carefree.
Jack: I'm gonna let go now.
Emily: No, no, no.
Jack: Come on. Ready?
Emily: Okay, hold on. Hold on, hold on. Oh. Oh, this is fun.
Jack: I knew it. I've been had.
Jack: I should have known this the moment you said you played hockey.
Emily: Oh, Jack, this is wonderful. (Laughs)
Jack: Yeah, this is.
Emily: Yeah. Whoo! (Laughs) Mm. (Sighs)
Victoria: Oh, wow. It's really late. I got a life to get back to. I've seen enough of how much yours sucks.
Billy: Oh, come on. We're having so much fun. Darn it.
Victoria: Well, fun is what I'm gonna have when I walk out of he and you can't leave. Fun is playing with my little boy. Oh, but you can't see your daughter when you're in jail, can you? That's too bad.
Man: Your lawyer's waiting for you.
Billy: Rafe? Well, that's--that's weird. He usually comes here to see me.
Man: You've been sprung.
Billy: Yo, I can leave?
Man: Gonna miss your friends?
Billy: (Chuckles) That's funny. No, I'm just-- I'm surprised, man. What changed the judge's mind?
Man: All I know is your lawyer got a court order.
Billy: Yeah, you know, man, I could kiss you. But I'm joking, so don't hit me. Just lead the way, all right?
Billy: Ahh, he did it. (Singsong voice) He did it. I'm free. (Claps hands) (Normal voice) See ya, buddy. Let's go! (Voices overlapping)
Phyllis: Excuse me. You look happy.
Daniel: Well, I honestly believe that everything's gonna work out for the best.
Phyllis: Me, too. There might be bumps in the road, but I want you to know, you're not gonna be alone. I'll always be there for you.
Daniel: And Amber.
Phyllis: And Amber.
Amber: Did I hear my name?
Daniel: Maybe. Maybe I was talking about another Amber.
Amber: Uh, you only get one Amber in your life, and it is me. (Chuckles)
(Cell phone rings)
Chloe: Oh, ex-excuse me. Sorry. Hello?
Billy: I need you to get over to the magazine right away.
Chloe: Uh, o-okay. What's wrong?
Billy: It's an emergency.
Chloe: Well, do you think that it can...
(Cell phone hangs up)
Chloe: Wait? Um, sorry. Duty calls for me, as well. Congratulations, Daniel.
Daniel: Thank you. Thank you.
Chloe: I'll see all you guys later.
Amber: Oh, thank for coming. Okay, come on.
Kevin: So if the cake wasn't enough, Jana made her delicious organic oatmeal cookies.
Daisy: Want me to get you one, Mrs. Newman?
Phyllis: Um, Phyllis, please. Yes. Phyllis.
Kevin: I've always liked Phyllis.
Daniel: Oh, baby, if you could bake cookies like Jana...
Emily: I know. It's okay.
Jack: I've got it. Oh, I'm gonna get off my feet. I'm so happy.
Emily: All right. (Sighs)
Jack: (Sighs and groans)
Emily: Ice-skating trivia. My first kiss was on the ice.
Jack: How old were you?
Emily: I was 11. Jason Ellers-- oh, and he was cute. (Clears throat) We were playing hockey.
Jack: Oh, hockey again. This is a recurring theme.
Emily: (Chuckles) Okay, we collided, and Jason came over and helped me up and planted a kiss right on my lips.
Emily: And I could have died.
Jack: Young Jason had some smooth moves.
Emily: Yeah. Mm-hmm. Do you remember your first kiss?
Jack: Oh, yeah.
Jack: I was 5.
Emily: 5? Precocious. (Laughs)
Jack: Janell-- Janell was her name, an older woman. She was 6.
Jack: Long, blonde curls. And she loved to kiss, and I'll never forget it.
Emily: And I'm sure she didn't, either. You were born a player, Jack. (Clears throat)
Jack: I don't know. I'd like to think these days I'm finally past that. I'm more of a one-woman man now.
Kevin: What are you doing here?
Ryder: Look, I know you asked me to stay away, but I want to make things right with Daniel.
Kevin: No. No, this is not the time.
Ryder: Look, I'll leave as soon as I talk to him.
Kevin: Dude-- (Scoffs)
Ryder: I'm glad you're out.
Phyllis: No, no. Keep away from my son.
Daniel: It's okay. Its okay, Mom. You know you could have saved me and my family a whole hell of a lot of trouble if you just told the truth to the grand jury.
Ryder: I wanted to, but after Deacon threatened me, I--
Amber: Do you have any idea what happened to Daniel in prison, huh? He got hurt. He got hurt. There was an accident.
Ryder: Maybe--maybe Deacon had something to do with it?
Amber: I know he had something to do with it.
Jana: Well, you know what? Deacon's not here right now, is he? So would you like to tell us your side of the story?
Ryder: I'm sorry. I-I can't.
Kevin: I had no idea he was gonna show up.
Daniel: It's not your fault, man.
Amber: I would love to just smack the truth out of that punk.
Phyllis: You and me both.
Amber: Why would he show up here and ruin-- ruin our whole--our party?
Daniel: Okay, relax. Relax.
Amber: I could--I could just kill him right now.
Daniel: Relax! He didn't ruin anything, trust me.
Phyllis: Hey, um, Amber, I have a gift for-- for you and Daniel. Can you get it in my car? It's unlocked. It's in my car. Can you get it, please?
Amber: Yeah. Mm-hmm.
Phyllis: It--the--the fresh air might do you good.
Amber: Okay, sure. Sure.
Daniel: You want me to come with you?
Amber: No, no.
Phyllis: I want--I want us to take some pictures together.
Amber: I'll-- I'll be right back, okay? Mm! (Sighs)
Phyllis: She is fine. Really, she's fine.
Lauren: I am more convinced than ever that Ryder is hiding something.
Michael: I agree. But he has already taken up too much of our time together this evening. So let's enjoy the rest of our time together.
Michael: Forget about Deacon, Ryder and rodentia of any species...
Michael: Size, genus, mm. I think it's time that you opened this anniversary present.
Lauren: Hmm. Well, there's nothing like jewelry to make a woman happy.
Michael: Nothing? Because I did have something else planned.
Lauren: Oh, really?
Lauren: Well, then I'd like to amend my previous statement.
Michael: We didn't order champagne.
Man: Oh, it's from a person who wanted to wish Mr. And Mrs. Baldwin a very happy anniversary.
Lauren: Oh, who's it from?
Man: Uh, they asked to remain anonymous.
Jack: You in the Christmas spirit?
Emily: Oh, yes, with the ice-skating and the music and the alcohol? Jack, this--this is-- this is wonderful.
Jack: So you're ready for part two?
Emily: There's more?
Jack: Oh, yeah. The skating is just the warm-up.
Chloe: You're out.
Billy: (Chuckles) Surprise. I stood my ground, and I won.
Chloe: Wow, that's-- that's fantastic.
Billy: Yeah, I beat that crooked judge at his own game. Did you catch the article in "The Chronicle" that said I had "Journalistic integrity"?
Chloe: So you didn't have to make a deal?
Billy: No. Nope. I just didn't give in, and it paid off. And now I'm going to write a story about it. "Billy Abbott sticks it to the man and wins." And I need you to go find a great visual for it, so...
Chloe: Um, okay.
Billy: (Chuckles) Look who came to celebrate.
Victoria: My attorney called and said the judge let you out.
Billy: Drink it in.
Victoria: (Sighs) Who'd you pay off?
Billy: Oh, you're confused. See, it's the Newmans who pay people off. See, I have principles. I wouldn't expect you to know anything about that. But now that I'm back, I am free to write about any sordid little stories you want to throw my way. So why don't you get up, get out of here, hop to it, start scandalizing? I've got a magazine to publish.
Victoria: You come after me again, and I'm gonna wipe that grin off your face-- permanently.
Billy: Mm-hmm! Wow!
Chloe: (Clears throat)
Billy: Did you see the look on her face? I mean, that was priceless. You know, the best thing I ever did... (Door slams) Was not give up that juror's name. Oh, this is gonna be fun.
(Computer keys clicking)
Kevin: You need to leave.
Ryder: Everywhere I go, I'm getting kicked out. I'm not bothering anyone.
Kevin: You're bothering everyone.
Ryder: You, too, huh?
Kevin: My family keeps telling me I need to cut you loose. And I say that they don't understand what you've been through the way that I do-- you know, how messed up you can get from being abused, a-and that's why I haven't given up on you, why I keep fighting for you.
Ryder: Until now.
Kevin: I just-- I don't understand. I asked you to do one thing and not show up tonight. Why couldn't you do that? (Stammers) (Sighs) It makes me think that I shouldn't give you the benefit of the doubt, that maybe I can't help you. You might need to crash and burn on your own like I did before you can change your life.
Jana: Kev, you know what I think? I think that maybe taking away Ryder's safety net might make him tell us what we want.
Ryder: You don't understand.
Kevin: You're right, I don't. So why don't you explain it to me? Wh--
Ryder: This sucks. I am sick of being the bad guy.
Daisy: Deal with it, and stop talking to me before someone gets suspicious.
Ryder: Just so you know, I'm pretty sure she's in Genoa City.
Michael: I'm sorry this didn't turn out to be the anniversary I'd hoped for.
Lauren: Oh, Honey, I'm sorry. I've just been so distracted since that champagne thing. It just really unsettled me.
Michael: Well, we sent it back unopened. It's over. Oh, thank you. (Clears throat)
Lauren: Thank you.
Michael: That. Thank you. But one good thing came out of tonight. At least we know for certain that Ryder is behind everything that's happened recently.
Lauren: (Sighs) Right.
Michael: And that means there is no more reason to even mention the "S" word.
Lauren: Thank you so much. Thank you for being my love and my best friend and my protector. You just-- you're the greatest husband anyone could ever have. (Chuckles) Mm. (Chuckles) Okay.
Lauren: Let's go home. (Chuckles)
Phyllis: Oh, come on, Deacon. Text me. Text me. (Sighs)
Daniel: Hey, let me see those pictures.
Phyllis: Oh! Yeah, um...
Daniel: Eh, delete.
Daniel: (Chuckles) Delete.
Phyllis: Yeah. (Chuckles)
Daniel: You can keep that one.
Phyllis: That's great. What's that for?
Daniel: (Sighs) I'm starting to think that it was worth going to jail. Seeing you and Amber so close is, uh, very cool.
Amber: What do you want?
Deacon: I came to get you. Come on.
Amber: Let go of me.
Deacon: Come on.
Amber: Let go of me!
Deacon: Get in the car.
Amber: What the hell are you doing?! Let go of me! Stop it!
Deacon: Get in the car. Get in the car. Come on.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Daniel: Amber, um, where is she? I thought she was just running out to the car.
Michael: Lauren told me you didn't think Daisy was entirely trustworthy, so I ran a little background check.
Woman: You ratted me out to the judge, you bastard.
