Proofread By Emma
Vance: What's this I hear about you tryin' to skip town?
Sharon: Vance, you're back. When'd you get in?
Vance: Flew in this morning. Sharon, boarding a plane with a passport under your daughter's name?
Sharon: Look, I know.
Vance: I mean, did you really think that would work?
Sharon: It was stupid. I know. Go ahead. Yell at me. Everyone else has.
Vance: It's not just the additional charges that concern me. Sharon, jumping bail does not convince the jury of your innocence.
Sharon: Do you at least want to hear why I did it?
Vance: Never let the truth get in the way of a good defense. Okay, you will need some fresh clothes to look presentable in court. Whom do I speak to about that?
Sharon: No one, I guess. I'm the town pariah.
Billy: Thanks again for meeting me here.
(Cell phone rings)
Billy: Ooh. Hello. How is my favorite intrepid reporter in Thailand?
Phyllis: I am very good. Adam is here. I was right.
Billy: Did you talk to him?
Phyllis: No. I showed his picture around the Bangkok airport, and a pilot recognized him as one of the passengers that boarded a plane to Ranong.
Billy: Well, stay on it. I just met with a rep from one of the big ad agencies. They're gonna offer us some serious money if we can provide some headline-making news, so...
Phyllis: You know, Billy, this story is getting better and better.
Billy: Why Ranong? What's there?
Phyllis: I don't know. I don't know. It's a small village compared to Bangkok. But if Adam is there, I will find him.
Adam: (Groans) (Sighs) (sighs)
Sharon: Skye, I am not gonna let you die!
Skye: I wouldn't bet on it.
Sharon: (Breathing heavily)
Adam: (Whispering) Sharon's camera. (Sighs) It's gone. (Sighs) Damn it, Koa.
Michael: Whoa. Good morning. Look at you. Nice.
Diane: Yeah. Fenmore's.
Michael: Oh, even nicer.
Diane: (Chuckles) Thanks. Kyle thinks it's too fancy. Between you and me, he's afraid I'm gonna make him get all dressed up on the weekends.
Michael: There is nothing wrong with a casual sport jacket at hockey practice.
Diane: Michael, I will tell him that you said that. Excuse me.
Victor: Did you find cause for an appeal?
Michael: (Sighs) Victor--
Victor: Keep looking.
Michael: May I remind you again that the arbitration agreement you signed is ironclad. It does provide for review of the decision, but only if there is a fundamental error in the order of law. Now I've consulted with superior court judges. They're in agreement. They respect Judge Phelps, and they find no error in his decision.
Victor: There must be something you can come up with.
Michael: I promise you, I have exhausted every possible option. You are free to consult with another attorney. You will get the same answer. Look, my advice to you is not to drag this thing on longer than necessary.
Victor: Your advice to me is to spend $1.5 billion in a settlement to my children. That's your advice, right?
Michael: Victor, there's no way that you could possibly carry on business as usual with this judgment hanging over your head, not to mention the toll it's taking on your person life...
Victor: $1.5 billion!
Michael: And your health.
Victor: My health is all right.
Michael: I have come up with several settlement options for you to consider. The proposal of splitting off Beauty of Nature might be your best bet. It causes the least amount of disruption to your other holdings.
Victor: My children do not dictate to me the amount of the settlement. They don't dictate a damn thing to me! I will decide if I settle what the terms will be.
Nick: Hey, thanks for coming to support Summer's school.
Victoria: Yeah, and I'm happy to. How is she liking Walnut Grove?
Nick: Honestly, that kid can't wait to leave the house to get to school. I'm trying not to take that personally.
Victoria: Really? You know what? I liked school when I was her age.
Nick: Yeah. Aren't you glad that's all behind us?
Victoria: Oh, totally. (Sighs) So anyway, listen. I wanted to talk to you again about Beauty of Nature.
Nick: (Sighs) I told you the other day, and I meant that. I'm not interested.
Victoria: I know. I know. But would you just please take a look at these numbers before you make up your mind, all right?
Victoria: This is a conservative projection of profit and growth for a combined Beauty of Nature and Jabot over the next five years.
Nick: You're just not gonna let this go, are you?
Victoria: Look, even if our assets return only 12%, which is a gamble, we wouldn't make half as much as we would with a merger.
Nick: (Sighs) Beauty of Nature's always been your thing. It's never been mine.
Victoria: Okay, I know that, but we can join forces.
Nick: I don't want to run someone else's company.
Victoria: I told you, remember? It's-- it's an equal partnership-- 50/50 with Tucker.
Nick: Well, I definitely don't want to trade in Dad for a newer model of jackass.
Victoria: Okay, great. So have you given any thought to what you're gonna do with your part of the settlement?
Nick: (Sighs) Yes, I have. A lot, actually. It's a good time to get into venture capital, maybe do some seed funding. I've got my eye on a couple of startups I'm really into.
Victoria: Really? Do you have any idea how risky that is?
Nick: Well, it would be a lot more fun than running around with your boring crowd.
Victoria: Oh, my goodness. Boring crowd. Really?
Victoria: Look, if we combined Beauty of Nature and Jabot, a couple of years from now, we will have a hugely successful company, and you can dabble in whatever you want.
Nick: (Sighs) It's just not in my future. I'm gonna cash out now.
Nikki: Where's my purse?
(Knock on door)
Nikki: Housekeeping. Okay. Uh, hi.
Woman: Uh, hi. I can come back later.
Nikki: No, no, no, no. It's fine. It's fine. Come on in.
Nikki: Um, I am so sorry. I seem to have broken the lock on the minibar.
Nikki: I had a terrible chocolate craving in the middle of the night. I-I had purposely asked to not have a key so I wouldn't be tempted for all the good it did me. (Laughs)
Woman: That's, um, that's not a problem. I can just reset the lock and leave you a key.
Nikki: Oh, no, no. No key. No key. No more candy for me. (Laughs) All right, um, I-I'll let you do your work.
Deacon: Excuse me. Would you mind coming back later, please?
Nikki: (Scoffs) Look, I have said everything I need to say to you. You have been banned from this property, and if you don't leave right now, I'm gonna call security.
Deacon: I-I just want one minute, please? I just want to know that you're okay.
Nikki: I'm fine!
Deacon: Nikki, if anything ever happened to you, I--
Nikki: Oh, please. Don't flatter yourself. I'm not falling apart over you.
Deacon: Why can't I make you understand how much I care about you?
Nikki: I do understand. That's why you sabotaged my sobriety.
Deacon: You just don't get a break, do you? I mean-- I mean, first, it's this--this stupid lawsuit with your kids, and then I let you down. Now it's your ex. Yeah, I saw it. I saw the wedding announcement of Victor and Diane.
Woman: Diane, oh, it's so good to see you.
Woman: Isn't this a wonderful turnout?
Woman: Oh, you know lacey, don't you?
Lacey: My daughter Madison is in Mr. Driscoll's class with Kyle.
Woman: You know, we were just saying you would make a terrific addition to the parents' advisory committee.
Lacey: Walnut Grove could use someone with your talents and enthusiasm and--
Diane: My husband's money?
Diane: You know, it's funny. I've been taking my son to school for months now, and you've never once said hello to me. You've never even returned a smile. And now you want me to be on your committee.
Woman: Oh, you know, we just thought that you might be--
Diane: I know what you thought. I'll consider it. I might be too busy, though, being a newlywed and all.
Victoria: You and I made a great team at Newman. You always had my back, and I always had yours.
Nick: We do work very well together.
Victoria: Okay, so then let's just-- let's--let's keep it going. Let's do it again.
Nick: I would be fine with that, just not Beauty of Nature.
Nick: Sis, it feels like a backwards move for me.
Nick: Look, there is this new technology with nanopolymer lenses. It is cutting-edge. It is amazing.
Nick: We could get in on the ground floor together. Let me send you some materials. Just look it over.
Victoria: I--you know, I'm just not willing to take that gamble with my future. I want to build something to pass on to my kids. I mean, don't you want to do the same thing for Faith and Noah and Summer? Come on.
Nick: Well, of course I do.
Victoria: Okay. Look, I'm not trying to take your dreams away from you, but just start with Beauty of Nature and build on that.
Nick: (Groans) I don't know. I mean--
Victoria: Come on. Look, there is no one that I can trust more than you. Who's gonna protect me from big, bad Tucker?
Nick: Abby'll never go for it.
Victoria: Well, we'll just-- we'll pay her off.
Nick: With what?
Victoria: With the combined assets of Beauty of Nature and Jabot, we'll take out a loan, and we'll buy off her portion of the judgment.
Michael: Beauty of Nature is not your only option. Before you make a decision, just read the file.
Victor: Michael, Beauty of Nature is not a settlement option. That is final.
Billy: Well, Sharon goes before the judge today.
Victoria: Oh, I still can't believe that she jumped bail and risked everything for Adam.
Billy: Well, I'm gonna cover the trial for "Restless Style." I hope that's okay with you.
Nick: All I care about is that Noah and Faith are protected.
Billy: How's Noah?
Nick: Uh, he is upset, you know? A lot of what Sharon has done is wrong, but half of what he reads is not true.
Victoria: I talked to him last night. He says he's not coming back because of everything that's going on.
Nick: Well, can you blame him? I mean, someday Faith is gonna be able to read, and she's gonna see all this stuff.
Billy: I'm a father, too. I'll keep that in mind, okay?
Nick: Thank you, Billy.
Victoria: You're a very good husband.
Billy: I know...
Billy: I'm a good husband.
Victoria: Uh, Nick, do you want a refill?
Nick: Uh, I'm okay, thanks.
Victoria: Okay. No problem.
Billy: Is Phyllis around?
Nick: You know she's not.
Billy: I'd hoped she'd be back with my story by now, but she's not.
Nick: Let's hope that's all she comes back with.
Billy: Huh, all right. (Clears throat) All right, I've gotta go.
Billy: I thought I would, uh, support the old alma mater and buy some pastries for the office.
Victoria: That's so nice of you, yeah.
Nick: Good man.
Billy: I know. You know, our--our daughters one day will be going to Walnut Grove, huh?
Victoria: Yeah, how about that? She'll meet guys like you.
Billy: Our daughters one day will be homeschooled. Okay, later. Bye. Mwah!
Victoria: Bye, Baby.
Billy: Oh, hi. Welcome to the family. Buckle your seat belt, by the way.
Diane: Great fund-raiser. Looks like the school is raising a bundle.
Victoria: Yeah. But not as well as your own personal charity event, sinking your claws into my dad's money.
Victor: Look who's talking about getting her claws into my money.
Nikki: You can take your pseudo-sympathy and your phony support and get out of here before I call the police!
Deacon: Look, I know exactly what it's like to feel like everything's falling down around you. I just need you to know you're not alone.
Nikki: You know what? I have a lot of people who love me and support me. They're friends of mine. You're not on that list.
Deacon: Will you please, please just give me a chance to make this up to you?
Nikki: What is the matter with you? Guess what? I think this--the authorities would love to hear about how you conspired with Meggie against me.
Deacon: You know what, Nikki? You do what you gotta do.
Nikki: Really? What, are you stupid? Just--just go! Get outta here! Move! Leave! Or I will make that call next time. Got it?
Deacon: All right. Okay, I'll go. Please just take care of yourself, all right?
Nikki: Yeah, please get out! (Sighs)
Vance: A word of warning-- when we walk out, expect a media circus. I've arranged for us to use the back doors through the jail and into the courthouse.
Sharon: Thank you.
Woman: Hands in front.
Sharon: Do we have to do this?
Woman: Standard operating procedure-- no exceptions.
Vance: It won't be for long.
Man: I haven't seen Koa since he poured himself into a cab last night.
Adam: How long has he been comin' here?
Man: Mm, couple of weeks?
Adam: Can we find out if he has any friends or anybody who might know anything about where he went? I'll pay for whatever information.
Adam: (Sighs) Adam, you had it. You had the evidence right there in your hands that would exonerate Sharon. Unbelievable.
Adam: I don't-- I don't want a drink. I want information.
Man: Never turn down a free drink from a beautiful woman.
Phyllis: (Clicks tongue)
Adam: (Sighs, scoffs)
Nick: Why don't we put our problems aside for the moment and remember that we're here for a fund-raiser for Walnut Grove?
Diane: Exactly. We can be civil to one another and support our kids.
Victor: Maybe your children will grow up and appreciate what you have done for them, Son. Let's go.
Victoria: Hmm. You know, just because she has a ring on her finger doesn't mean that she can meddle in our family business. It's a good thing that judgment came through when it did, because who knows what will be left when she leaves Dad this time?
Nick: You think she will?
Victoria: (Scoffs) Come on. Don't you? I mean, look at her history. Diane doesn't get involved with a man without a money agenda.
Sharon: (Sighs) Well, that was a waste of time.
Vance: I thought you were clear on the situation. Attempting to leave the country is grounds to revoke your bail.
Sharon: I know that. I just thought that when the judge heard why I got on the plane--
Vance: Tampering with a passport is a federal crime. It doesn't matter what the reason.
Sharon: Vance, I had to go to Thailand. If Adam had any information that could help clear me--
Vance: You don't think he'd race back if he did?
Sharon: Can't we just request a new judge?
Vance: Sorry, Sharon. You are in jail till this goes to trial.
Sharon: And how long is that gonna be?
Vance: Well, the way these things go, sometimes it could be upward of 60 days.
Sharon: No, no, I can't. I have a small child. She's a baby. She needs to be with me.
Vance: Okay, you can ask her father to bring her to visit.
Sharon: To jail?! I can't! (Voice breaks) Oh, gosh, I've really messed everything up.
Vance: I'll do everything I can to get this moved up on the court calendar as soon as possible. No promises.
Sharon: Thank you.
Vance: Hey, don't give up. You got the best lawyer in the country, so it says on the front page of "The Times" today, and we know they never lie.
Billy: Hey. How you doin'?
Sharon: Not too good. Were you in the courtroom?
Billy: I sat in the back. That judge-- he was hard-core. I mean, I am not even gonna jaywalk in this town anymore. I saw your lawyer on the way out. I asked him for a quote.
Sharon: What'd he tell you?
Billy: He said, "No comment." I mean, I don't get this guy. He just won the biggest lawsuit of his career. His face is plastered all over the news, and he can't even say a few words about your case.
Sharon: He's just trying to protect me.
Billy: Mm. Well, why don't you talk to me? I mean, come on. What's going on? What's the deal?
Sharon: (Scoffs) There is no deal.
Billy: You falsified a passport to leave the country, and the press is eating it up, and, Honey, you are not gonna like what you read.
Sharon: Well, I'm used to it.
Billy: Sharon, you need to build some public support before your trial, okay? Let me get your side of the story out there. I can do that.
Adam: Okay. Following me to the ends of the earth, Phyllis? How'd you find me?
Phyllis: Well, I got to give credit where credit's due. I did not find you. Sharon did. I followed her.
Adam: You followed Sharon here?
Phyllis: No, no. No, she's not.
Adam: Okay. Where is she?
Phyllis: Let me see. My guess right now... she's in jail. Yeah, she was hauled off the plane. Something about falsifying her passport to get out of the country.
Adam: No, no, no. She wouldn't. She did--she didn't do that.
Phyllis: Uh, yeah, she did. Didn't you guys come up with that together?
Adam: No. Of course not, Phyllis. I wouldn't want her to skip bail.
Phyllis: Oh. Oh, oh, oh, oh! Oh, I know, because you would never do anything dishonest, would you?
Adam: Believe it or not, no, I wouldn't, Phyllis. I would have strongly advised that she didn't do that. That's...
Phyllis: Have you spoken to her?
Adam: No, not since I left Genoa City.
Phyllis: Oh, okay. Well, let me be the first to tell you that a warrant for your arrest was issued for perjury.
Adam: Yeah, I knew that Victor lost the arbitration. I read about it online. I figured the judge didn't buy my deposition about forging those wills.
Phyllis: Oh, yeah, so you just thought you'd skip town before they threw you in jail, right?
Adam: Mm, that's why you think I came here? Just to hang out, get away from it all?
Adam: Okay, well, I didn't, and if I could, I would go back to Sharon in a heartbeat.
Phyllis: Why aren't you?
Adam: Because I'm more used to her right here.
Phyllis: Really? Here? Drinking in bars in Thailand?
Adam: Mm-hmm. Yeah, just hangin' out. That's what you think I'm doing. You know that guy that you were looking for with Jack in Hawaii?
Phyllis: Mm. Mm-hmm.
Adam: The big dude?
Phyllis: Mm-hmm. Yeah. Koa. Right.
Adam: At the market?
Phyllis: The guy who, uh, won the lottery and skipped town. The only lottery he ever won was called "Victor."
Adam: Mm-hmm. Well, he's here, and he has proof that Sharon didn't kill Skye.
Phyllis: I almost believe you.
Adam: Well, from you, "Almost" is-- it's just good enough. You know Sharon's camera? (Taps bar top) It's here. It had evidence on it-- videos, pictures of Skye the night of the volcano. It's proof that Sharon did not kill Skye. It was an accident.
Phyllis: Why are you not-- why are you not in Genoa City with all your proof?
Adam: Well, I would be, Phyllis. I would be right now on a plane back there, but the camera is no longer with me. I was looking at it, and this Koa guy, he came up behind me and whacked me in the head.
Phyllis: I know. I know. I know. It's so difficult. I mean, "Oh! Oh! I almost had the evidence, but I lost it."
Adam: Just give me your hand please. You feel that? Does that feel made up to you? Yeah.
Phyllis: A lump on the head is not proof that anything happened.
Adam: Koa was here... (Taps bar top) Right here, sitting in this seat. Listen, Phyllis, you want to hate on Sharon, you want to hate on me, that's fine. That's your prerogative. But we're talking about a woman going away to jail, to prison. She's going to be away from her children, from Faith, for a very long time. I know your story, Phyllis, and I know that when your kids were young, you were away from them. You wouldn't want that to happen to somebody else, would you?
Phyllis: No, I don't.
Adam: Well, then you have two choices-- you can help me, or you can get out of my way. 'Cause either way, I'm going to be looking for Koa and that camera.
Phyllis: Where do we start?
Adam: His hotel. I didn't touch anything. I figure we can go back there and take a look, see if there's anything that leads us to him.
Phyllis: Okay, how do we get into this hotel?
Adam: I don't know. I've got this little... little thing in my pocket here called a room key. I put a "Do not disturb" sign on the door so the housekeeper wouldn't mess with the room. I figured we'd find something.
Phyllis: You have a brilliant mind. Imagine if you put that mind of yours to use-- all the good you could do in the world.
Sharon: Why would I trust you after that article you published on me?
Billy: (Sighs) Okay, that was a different time. And I can give you a voice. You can be heard. The public's very forgiving.
Sharon: Don't pretend like you care, Billy, when all you want to do is sell magazines.
Billy: Believe it or not, I am concerned about you. You're extended family in a way, and I promise you, I will present the facts as fairly and sympathetically as possible.
Sharon: (Scoffs) I've heard that before.
Billy: (Chuckles) Off the record, you're an outcast in this town because you chose Adam. And, yeah, that's tough. I've been there. And you need a friend, and I'm your guy, not just because I want a story, but because I know how desperate you must have been to forge that passport.
Vance: No reporters unless you're cleared through my office.
Billy: Well, it's off the record, big boy.
Sharon: It's all right. He can stay.
Vance: Well, good news on the trial front. I made some noise, got you on the court calendar. Jury selection begins next week.
Sharon: (Sighs) Thank you.
Vance: Don't thank me yet. That stunt you pulled is causing a real problem. You will be getting out of here. But whether it's walking out a free woman or being sent to Jackson penitentiary is anybody's guess.
Woman: Do you need anything else, Ma'am?
Nikki: No, no. I'm fine, thank you.
Nikki: You know what? Um, I changed my mind. I will take that minibar key.
Woman: Oh, okay. There you go.
Nikki: Thank you.
Nick: It really would be great to work with you again.
Victoria: That's good to hear.
Victoria: Oh, my God. Deacon's headed this way. You know what? Sit down. Just--
Deacon: Calm down, all right? I need to talk to you.
Victoria: It's fine.
Nick: You need to beat it. You have caused enough damage to this family.
Deacon: Listen to me. Please listen. It's important.
Victoria: You should just go away right now. Go.
Deacon: Look, I think your mother's drinking again.
(Knock on door)
Nikki: (Whispers) Who the hell is that?
Nikki: (Normal voice) Just a minute.
Nikki: Oh, hi!
Nikki: My goodness. What a surprise.
Victoria: Hi, Mom. I know.
Nikki: How are you?
Victoria: We're good. We just, uh, we came by to see how you're doing. How are you doing?
Nikki: Well, I'm--I'm fine.
Victoria: Are you? I mean, are you-- are you really?
Nick: Look, things have been stressful lately, so we understand if, uh...
Victoria: And we would not blame you or we would--we would, you know, if there was--
Nikki: Blame me? (Stammers) What are you talking about? What has happened? Is something going on?
Victoria: Um... well, um--
Nick: Deacon told us that you've been drinking.
Nikki: What? Oh, my God. He actually went to my children to try to get to me? I cannot believe that!
Victoria: Okay, good. Uh, so then it's--it's not true. It's not true.
Nikki: He is despicable. I-I-I cannot believe that he would do it. What did he think that he would accomplish besides scaring you two to death?
Victoria: Well, you see, the thing is, is that Deacon said that he came by your room, and--
Nikki: Oh, well, yes, he did. He did, to apologize once again for getting me drunk, like that would make it all okay, and I would take him back?
Nick: Deacon said there was an empty bottle on the floor.
Nikki: Well, Kids, you are welcome to search the entire room if you like. Please. Please.
Victoria: No, Mom, look. It's okay. It's--its fine. We--we trust you.
Nikki: (Sighs) He--he's obviously desperate for his meal ticket. He wants to get me back like that. I'm just--I-I am ashamed that I ever took up with him. I'm so sorry.
Nick: Well, Mom, next time I see him, I am personally gonna beat the crap outta him.
Nikki: Oh, Honey, no, please. Please don't. (Sighs) Don't. Just--just ignore him, really. I don't ever want to hear his name again. I don't ever want to see his face again--ever.
Vance: Scotch, neat.
Deacon: (Clears throat) Congratulations on winning your big case, Counselor.
Deacon: I tell you, I didn't think you'd pull it off.
Vance: The law is a very forgiving mistress.
Michael: When'd you get back?
Vance: This morning. I finished up my trial on the coast.
Michael: Oh, how'd it go?
Vance: All's well that ends well.
Deacon: Mr. Baldwin, what can I get you?
Michael: Coffee, please.
Deacon: Made a fresh pot.
Vance: Wish I had been here for the Newman arbitration. That's a sweet win. I understand Victor's lagging on the payout.
Michael: Oh, I think my client has the right to, uh, look at all of his options, given the substantial size of the judgment.
Vance: True, true. I assumed you'd advise your client that an appeal is a waste of time.
Michael: Oh... I don't know. We've both won our share of long shots, huh?
(Cell phone rings)
Michael: Oh. Excuse me.
Michael: Yeah, Michael Baldwin.
Victor: I need to see you as soon as possible at the ranch. All right. Bye.
Diane: Busy day, huh?
Victor: What are you up to?
Diane: I thought I would check in with the foreman, um, about the remodel.
Victor: Mm-hmm. I saw that look between you and my son at Crimson Lights. I don't like it, okay? You stay away from him, not for your sake, but for his.
Billy: Next time you want to make a run for it, you should just call me. I know a lot of people.
Sharon: I know it was a dumb thing to do. But Adam is the only one who believes in me.
Billy: That's not true. Anybody who knows you knows you didn't kill Skye.
Sharon: Adam's the only one who's willing to fight to prove my innocence. Why else would he go off to Hawaii?
Billy: I don't know. How'd he end up in Thailand?
Sharon: I don't know. He probably found something that led him there. That's why I had to go, to help him find whatever it is he's looking for and to bring him back home so I don't have to go through all of this alone.
Billy: What about Jack and Phyllis? They went to Hawaii to help you.
Sharon: (Sighs) Oh, God. Are you kidding me?! With an agenda. Phyllis doesn't care about the truth! All she wants is some stupid story for your magazine, and Jack--he just wanted ammo against Victor. Adam is the only one who's willing to fight to prove my innocence and to prove that I didn't kill Skye.
Billy: I think you have more help than you realize you do.
Adam: I paid cash for a few more nights. I figured I'd hold on to the room. Maybe someone will try and contact Koa here.
Phyllis: Good, I need someplace to stay.
Adam: Mm, well, good luck with that, Phyllis, 'cause this room is my room.
Phyllis: Oh, why? So you can get a lead and take off without me? No way.
Adam: It's a good look. You'd do the same thing to me, Phyllis. You'd leave me in a heartbeat.
Phyllis: I'm not letting you out of my sight, Adam. Deal with it.
Adam: Okay, Roomie. I guess we're staying here together.
Phyllis: I guess so.
(Cell phone alert chimes)
Phyllis: It's from Billy. (Sighs) We better find Koa soon. Sharon's trial starts next week. Your fiancée is running out of options.
Vance: Mrs. Newman.
Nikki: Mr. Abrams. (Sighs)
Vance: Call me Vance. Meeting someone?
Nikki: Actually, no, I'm not.
Vance: Would you like to join me?
Nikki: Thank you... Vance.
Vance: And what would you like to drink?
Nikki: Oh, I don't-- um... club soda, please.
Vance: Club soda for the lady, please.
Deacon: Yes, Sir.
Vance: I have to say, I enjoy working with your daughter Victoria. Extraordinary woman-- beautiful, savvy, bright. You must be very proud of her.
Nikki: Oh, yes, I am. She's also a wonderful artist, very creative.
Vance: Something tells me she takes after her mother.
Victoria: You know, I really did want to search Mom's room. I just didn't want to hurt her feelings.
Nick: I mean, she looks good. She sounds good. You really think she's not sober anymore?
Victoria: No. I don't know. We missed all the signs before.
Nick: (Sighs) I just can't figure out why Deacon would lie to us.
Victoria: (Groans) That guy is such a slime. Maybe he did want to cause trouble for her so she'd start drinking again and then take him back.
Nick: Mom has enough problems as it is. I mean, Dad's new marriage could send her back to the bottle.
Victoria: Yeah, I know.
Nick: You saw how upset she was the other night.
Victoria: It was awful. I wanted her to come stay with us, but she said she wouldn't. Do you know how bad I feel-- her staying in that hotel room all by herself? Do you think that maybe we could get Katherine to... she could go stay with her again?
Nick: Eh, I doubt it. It's easier to fall off the wagon when no one's around to see.
Victoria: That is true. We're gonna have to keep an eye on her.
Nick: Yeah, we'll both do that.
Victoria: Yeah. You want anything?
Nick: No. (Sighs) But I've been thinking. The best part about me working at Newman was that I got to work with you.
Victoria: Yeah, because nobody called you on your bull like I did.
Nick: And vice versa.
Victoria: All right. You know what? I still have a copy of those numbers if you want to, you know, take a look at 'em.
Nick: We don't need Dad's legacy. Let's create our own.
Victoria: Oh, my gosh. Does this mean you're in?
Nick: Let's do it.
Nick: Let's go after Beauty of Nature.
Victoria: Yes! (Squeals) All right! Thank you. Thank you.
Nick: I'm in charge, though, right?
Victoria: (Laughs) Okay.
Victor: Uh, send him in. Thank you.
Diane: What look between us? Nick and I a-are-- we're friends. We've spent time together because Kyle and Summer go to the same school. That's all.
Victor: Just kindly do as I say. Stay away from my son, okay?
(Front door closes)
Michael: You'd think after all these years, the half-witted front gate would recognize my--oh. Well, oh, hi, again.
Victor: Michael, I have considered the various settlement options that you brought up.
Michael: I hope that means you're prepared to move on.
Victor: For the sake of Newman Enterprises, I won't drag this process out any longer. I'm gonna settle it my way.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Jana: Do you know where the baby is?
Victoria: There's a problem with Lucy's birth certificate.
Victor: You certainly didn't trade up, did you?
Diane: What did you tell your father about us?
