Episode # 9665 ~ Ashley Is Arrested

Proofread By Emma

Jack: Just the man I wanted to see.

Michael: Oh, lucky me.

Jack: I have this giant pile of Newman stock options just waiting for an I.P.O. Any clue when that's gonna happen?

Michael: To do what with them? Cash out? I would think anything labeled "Newman," you'd want to sleep with under your pillow.

Jack: Oh, I think you know where my obsessions lie. These stock options are merely a means to an end.

Michael: Mm-hmm. And a nice little bit of leverage to help persuade Katherine to make you C.E.O.? Although, I'd have to wonder how your sister feels about that since she is out as C.E.O.

Jack: You know, grateful as I am for all you've done for Ashley, getting her out of jail on bail and everything, I'd just as soon you--

Michael: Mm, butt out?

Jack: I am looking out for my family's interests, Michael. Even you can't fault me for that.

Abby: Can I get another soda? Unless you can think of a cocktail that makes you forget the last few weeks of your life, please.

Deacon: Honey, I'm good, but not that good.

Abby: That's fine. I shouldn't be drinking anyway. That's what got me into this mess.

Deacon: You know, Abby, I'm, uh, I'm about to go on break, and I know that in about ten minutes, just a couple blocks from here, there happens to be a meeting, one of those meetings that, uh, they have seven days a week, 52 weeks a year. If you'd care to go with me, uh...

Abby: I'm guessing that you heard I was at that meeting a couple days ago.

Deacon: You know, it's the funniest thing. Every time I go to one of those meetings...

Abby: (Sighs)

Deacon: I always wind up feeling better about myself.

Abby: Thanks, but no thanks.

Deacon: Okay. I mean, look, it might not be the right thing for you. But if you don't mind my saying so, neither is this bar.

(Alarms sounding)

Ashley: Please, somebody, come right away to Tucker McCall's room. Something happened. Hurry up! I don't know what happened. The alarms just started going off.

Kay: What are you doing in here alone with him? She's not supposed to be here! Somebo--somebody--somebody get her out of here now!

Nikki: My new home. (Sighs)

Victor: Well, temporarily.

Woman: I'll be back shortly, walk you through our admissions process. At that point, no guests will be permitted.

Victor: All right, understood.

Woman: I'll give you some time to settle in.

Victor: Thank you.

Nikki: Thank you.

Victor: (Sighs)

Nikki: (Sighs)

Victor: Well... it's a nice room. The staff seems to be very nice.

Nikki: Yeah. Now the fun begins. (Sighs) Kickin' the booze all over again.

Victor: Come here.

Nikki: (Sighs)

Victor: Now you listen to me. You're very strong. You're gonna get through this, okay?

Victoria: Well, I think Mom should be there by now, right?

Nick: Yeah. It's a hell of a birthday for her.

Victoria: Well, at least she's getting the help that she needs.

Nick: And Dad finally did right by her.

Billy: Yeah, it's time he stepped up, isn't it?

Victoria: Yeah, you know, that's just the part that I'm not able to figure out.

Billy: (Sighs)

Victoria: Just when you think he's written off his entire family, and then he does something like this for Mom.

Nick: Dad's always been big on grand gestures.

Billy: Well, I think he owes your sister one, too-- the way he's treated her since we got married. Well, I couldn't imagine being a father like that to my kids.

Nick: You thinking about Lucy?

Victoria: Yeah, that's what we do pretty much most of the time.

Billy: Especially since Phyllis decided to make it her life's mission to keep our daughter away from us. I mean, how desperate do you have to be to bring someone like Daisy back to town?

Daniel: Come on. I did my part. Now you do yours. Come on.

Phyllis: Yeah, do your part, Sweetie.

Daniel: Give me a burp.

Phyllis: Hey, you know what?

Daniel: Hmm?

Phyllis: It helps if you put her over your knee and just sort of, you know, push your hand up, I-I find.

Daniel: Oh, we don't want to rush a good thing, right, Luce? Yeah.

Phyllis: Yeah, well, it's just--it hurts her little tummy.

Daniel: Oh, come on, I never did this with Summer before? Remember?

Phyllis: Right. I-I know. I just, you know, sometimes I just--yeah.

Daniel: Forget? Yeah. Can't help yourself. Yeah, I know.

Phyllis: I know, Sweetie.

Daniel: I got her.

(Knock on door)

Daniel: Oh, that's a girl. Hey, Rafe, come on in. You got good news for me?

Phyllis: Hey.

Rafe: The best kind. Uh, the court's gonna rule today on terminating Daisy's parental rights. Since she hasn't come forward, it's lookin' better and better for your case.

Daniel: That's awesome.

Phyllis: Oh, I-I'm sorry. What you're saying is he'll be granted permanent custody, right?

Rafe: Well, there are no guarantees here, but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't.

Daniel: Okay, so then once that happens, we'll, uh, go along with the plan, right?

Rafe: I'm on it.

Daniel: Um, what time's the hearing?

Rafe: Uh, as soon as I get word, I'll text you. It's good to see you, Phyllis.

Phyllis: You, too.

Daniel: See you later, Man. (Sighs)

Phyllis: Yeah, hmm.

Daniel: Did you hear that?

Phyllis: The plan? What plan? What--what plan?

Daniel: Well, you know, you know, as much as you need to know already.

Phyllis: Which is nothing. I know nothing.

Daniel: So why don't we just leave it that way, huh? Let it be.

Phyllis: I have a better idea. Why don't you tell me so I don't have to spend the next hour interrogating you?

Daniel: Well, we could tell you, but I don't think you're gonna like it.

Victor: (Sighs)

Victor: I want you to feel as comfortable as you can here, okay?

Nikki: Mm, usually the words "Comfortable" and "Rehab" are not in the same sentence.

Victor: Well, there's no use in thinking about this in any negative way. I mean, you're strong. You'll get through this.

Nikki: It just all happened so fast. I mean, I haven't-- haven't even told Katherine. I didn't have time to tell her that I was coming here.

Victor: Well, that doesn't make any difference. She'll understand. I'll tell her.

Nikki: (Sighs) What about everybody else? What are they gonna think?

Victor: Who cares what they think? Really, don't worry about that. Just focus on having done a very positive thing.

Nikki: So you view this as something positive?

Victor: Yes, I do.

Nikki: (Sighs) Yet it's the second time in a matter of months that you've had to pick me up off the ground and drag me to rehab. I can't even imagine what you must think of me.

Jack: How much trouble is Ashley in exactly?

Michael: Well, I'm hoping to plead this down to a minor charge so she doesn't have to spend any time in jail.

Jack: You're "Hoping." You're the busiest lawyer in town. You're hoping? That's the best you can do?

Abby: Hi.

Jack: Hey.

Abby: Would I be, um, interrupting if I asked to join you?

Jack: No, no, no, no. Sit down. Sit down. Come on.

Abby: Thanks.

Jack: I didn't see you come in.

Abby: I've been here for a while just, uh, thinking about things.

Michael: So how you doing? You look a little down.

Abby: There's not much to be up about.

(Cell phone rings)

Abby: I-I just feel really crappy about this whole situation with my mom and Tucker.

Jack: Oh, that's your mom. Hold on. Hey, Ash.

Ashley: Jack, I need help. I'm in trouble. So is Tucker.

Jack: Where are you?

Ashley: I'm at Memorial. I came to see him, and-- and, uh, he took a turn for the worse.

Jack: You're not supposed to be within 100 feet of him. What are you thinking?

Ashley: Jack, I can't explain it right now. I had to see him. Now I need you, please.

Jack: Okay, Michael's here with me right now. We're on our way. You stay put.

Michael: What? What happened?

Jack: Ashley went to see Tucker against court orders.

Abby: (Scoffs)

Jack: She's at the hospital now.

Michael: Let's go. Let's go.

Abby: I-I'm gonna follow you guys, okay?

Michael: Yeah.

Victoria: Oh, Katherine, oh, my God. Well, is Tucker okay, or...?

Kay: Well, uh, right now, the doctors are trying to stabilize him. And in the meantime, I've got to, uh, tend to business. Uh, and for obvious reasons, I had to relieve Ashley of her position at Jabot.

Victoria: I-I know. The press hasn't really been very kind.

Kay: No, they certainly haven't. And all of that negative publicity surrounding the accident impacted her ability to lead the company. And, uh, I need someone to take charge as C.E.O., preferably you.

Victoria: Katherine... (Chuckles) Wow. Uh, that's--that's, uh, that's quite an honor and, uh, com--completely unexpected.

Kay: Uh, believe me. I-I would feel tremendously lucky if you'd come on board.

Victoria: Thank you. Um, well, can I have a little time to think about it? I-I-I-- I mean, I know you need to get someone in there right away--

Kay: There's nobody at the helm.

Victoria: I understand, yes. Um, boy, my dad's not gonna like this one. (Sighs)

Kay: Look, I can handle Victor. You just go and do some thinking, and then you get back to me as soon as possible, all right?

Victoria: Okay, Katherine. Thank you. I-I hope Tucker's okay.

Kay: Yes. So do I, my dear.

Victoria: You are not going to believe this. This is just--it's incredible. Katherine--Katherine just asked me to take over Jabot.

Nick: As C.E.O.?

Billy: What about Ashley?

Victoria: Uh... Katherine let her go.

Billy: Oh, boy. (Sighs)

Victoria: (Sighs) I know. I'm--I'm--I'm... (Sighs) Blown away.

Billy: You're not actually thinking about accepting this, are you?

Nick: I'm gonna go and let you guys kinda... yeah.

Victoria: Um... what?

Billy: I just don't know if this is the proper time with all that's going on with Lucy to take over my family's company, Honey.

Daniel: Just so we're clear... (Sighs) When the courts terminate Daisy's parental rights, they are going to be granting custody to me. That is me and not you, okay?

Phyllis: You know, I honestly think you believe you're doing the right thing for Lucy.

Daniel: We are not gonna have this discussion again. Billy and Victoria are Lucy's parents, and I'm gonna make sure that they raise her.

Phyllis: (Sighs) Daniel, I want you to listen to me. This is a mistake you can never, ever change. Do you hear that? Never. I think it's a mistake that will haunt you for the rest of your life.

Daniel: Well... (Clears throat) I'm sorry that you're disappointed, but this isn't your decision. This isn't your choice to make. So you have two options here-- you either come to the courthouse with us and you be a part of a healthy process for that little girl, or you continue to fight us, and you alienate yourself from everyone, including Lucy. Hey!

Ashley: I was sitting on the stool, and I was just talking to Tucker. I was saying encouraging things to him, loving things to him. I wasn't touching anything. I was holding his hand. That's it. And then I leaned in to give him a kiss, and that's when all the alarms went off.

Man: Are you aware there's an order of protection in place instructing you to stay away from Mr. McCall?

Ashley: He--he is my fiancé. When you told me that he had a son, Katherine, I felt like I needed to talk to him. Can't you understand that?

Kay: Well, and look what happened.

Ashley: Katherine, please!

Kay: Listen to me. As of you now, you have zero access to him. Make damn sure of that. (Sighs)

Jack: Katherine, Katherine, how's Tucker?

Kay: Uh, well, they're, uh, taking him down for more tests. That's all I know. Uh, he experienced some sort of an episode. Uh--

Michael: What? What happened?

Kay: Uh, ask Ashley. Uh, but be quick about it, because I am telling you, I am calling the district attorney, and I want her out of this building!

Jack: Wait, do you really think that's necessary?

Kay: Listen to me. I am in charge of Tucker's well-being, and I take that very, very seriously.

(Cell phone rings)

Michael: I'm--I'm so sorry. Excuse me. I'll make this quick. All right, not a good time.

Phyllis: (Sighs) I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I just need your help.

Michael: I don't--I-- I can't talk right now. I'm in the hospital in the middle of a legal emergency. I'll have to get back to you later, all right?

Phyllis: Wait, wait. Hey, Michael, come on. Don't hang up on me Mich--

(Phone hangs up)

Nick: Why in the hell are you trying to take my sister's baby from her?

Phyllis: This is Daniel's baby. This is Daniel's baby, and she was stolen from us.

Nick: Biology is not the end-all, be-all, Phyllis.

Phyllis: No, I know it's not. I know. But should I remind you that Billy adopted her illegally? Billy also fired me, so I'm not feeling a whole lot of love for him right now.

Nick: You broke a gag order twice. You're lucky you're not in jail, not to mention the damage you did to the magazine.

Phyllis: Well, maybe the magazine deserves to be ruined. He screwed with my livelihood.

Nick: You know, Billy is not gonna need the magazine at all if Victoria decides to take up Katherine on her offer.

Phyllis: What offer?

Nick: To be the C.E.O. of Jabot, now that Ashley's out.

Phyllis: Really? That's huge. Is she gonna do it?

Nick: I shouldn't have told you that. (Sighs)

Nick: (Whispers) Idiot.

Billy: Look, I mean, you could run Jabot with your hand tied behind your back. That's not the issue here.

Victoria: Okay, all right, what is the issue? Are--are you worried about how Jack and Ashley might react? Is that what it is?

Billy: Frankly, yes.

Victoria: Well, I wish that Katherine would give me a little more time, but she needs to know.

Billy: Well, I think that we should be focusing on getting Lucy back right now.

Victoria: What if we don't?

Billy: Oh, come on.

Victoria: It's a possibility.

Billy: You can't think that way. Don't think that way.

Victoria: What? What? No. She's been taken away from us twice already. So you can't really blame me for expecting the worst. I mean, I have to be prepared. I need to know how this is gonna go, because it was hard enough finding out how we got her. I don't want anything else coming at me from out of the blue. I really don't.

Billy: I'm sorry.

Victoria: It's just that... (Sighs) You know when we got married... (Sighs) Our life was supposed to be like "Father knows best," and... well, it's just so not that.

Billy: Honey, everybody goes through stuff like--

Victoria: No, they don't. Having an adoption overturned? No, not everybody goes through that. They don't. We don't know how this is gonna turn out. So... having something else for me to focus my mind on might actually help us get through this.

Billy: Are you serious right now? Are we really at that point where we have to wonder if we're gonna make it or not?

(Doorbell rings)

Billy: Oh, excuse me. Just a minute. (Sighs)

Daniel: Hello. Hello.

Rafe: Hey.

Billy: Hey.

Daniel: What's up? Hey, hey. (Silly voice) Hello. Hello.

Rafe: Is this a bad time?

Victoria: No, it's not a bad time.

Billy: I'm just surprised you have Lucy here. I mean, you told Daniel to stay away. What's goin' on?

Daniel: Well, you're gonna be more surprised when you hear our news.

Victoria: (Quietly) Hey.

Kay: Now Ashley waltzed right into Tucker's room. Not one single person interceded, and all hell breaks loose. You tell me. What good is a restraining order if there's nothing to back it up?

Spencer: Normally in a case like this, the family arranges for private security.

Kay: Are you going to stand there and tell me a citizen of my son's prominence is not worthy of police protection?

Spencer: No one said that, Mrs. Chancellor.

Kay: Good. Then do your job, or, by God, come election time, you'll find a campaign against you that will boggle your mind.

Spencer: I'll see to it that a guard's posted immediately.

Kay: Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to check on Tucker's condition.

Ashley: Will somebody please explain to me why talking to my fiancé and holding his hand is a crime? And don't say anything about that stupid restraining order, Michael, because there shouldn't even be one.

Jack: No one who knows you could possibly think you did anything wrong.

Ashley: Oh, really? (Sniffles) What about Katherine?

Michael: All right, listen to me.

Ashley: What?

Michael: As unjust as it seems to all of us, the fact that you violated the terms of your bail may pose a problem. I'm not saying that it will. I'm saying that it might. But we need to be prepared.

Ashley: Michael, what you need to do is make the police understand why I needed to be with Tucker right now, how important it was. Today was supposed to be our day we came back from our honeymoon, and we started our life together.

Jack: Hey, come here. Come here.

Ashley: (Sobs)

Michael: All right, listen, let's get out of here while we still have the chance.

Jack: Yeah, yeah, good idea. Come on. I'll take you home, all right?

Michael: Spencer, good to see you. I was just coming to find you. I assume that my client is free to go.

Spencer: You assume wrong. We're here to arrest her.

Ashley: Oh, come on. I'm going back to jail?

Jack: Wait, is that really necessary?

Michael: My client didn't realize that this was--

Spencer: It's your duty to inform her, Counselor.

Man: You're under arrest for violating the conditions of your bond.

Ashley: Oh, please, no. Jack?

Man: You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can be used against you.

Ashley: That's Tucker. Tucker. Is he all right?

Spencer: Ms. Abbott. We can do this quietly, or you can just put on the cuffs.

Ashley: Please. I want to talk to his doctor. Please. Jack, find out if he's okay.

Michael: Ashley, Ashley, I'm following you to the courthouse. Do not say anything until I get there.

Ashley: Abby?

Jack: Do you want me to go with you?

Michael: No. No, no. Uh, it won't do any good.

Jack: Okay, I will stay...

Michael: Yes. Yes.

Jack: See what I can find out from Tucker's doctor. Come on.

Phyllis: Okay, you're not going anywhere until we just-- we talk.

Michael: Aah! How the hell-- (Stammers) Okay, forget about it. Uh, I had a client who was just arrested. I am on my way to the station, all right?

Phyllis: Okay, it's about Lucy. There's gotta be a way--

Michael: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. We're through.

Phyllis: What are you talking about?

Michael: I work for the Newmans. That is a conflict of interest. I thought I made myself crystal clear, and by the way, just for, you know, interest, I don't agree with the fact that you're trying to take a child from the only family she has ever known.

Phyllis: The only family? I am her family. Daniel is her family, Michael.

Michael: If you expect me to sympathize with you, forget it. Those blog posts about Daisy, trying to bait her into coming back into town? You're stirring up trouble, and Lauren's gonna be the one to suffer for it. And another reason why, once and for all, no. Forever, no. I mean, please, don't ask me about this again.

Rafe: Once Daisy is stripped of all of her rights, I expect Daniel to be awarded full custody.

Victoria: Um, is it okay if we come to the hearing, please?

Daniel: Are you kidding me? We need you there.

Rafe: If I can arrange it, we'll make it official this afternoon. We'll sign the new adoption papers right there.

Billy: Come here, Buddy. Come here, Buddy.

Rafe: (Chuckles)

Victor: (Sighs) Well... anything else I can do to help you feel settled?

Nikki: (Sighs) Victor, you've already done so much.

Victor: (Sighs) I've always wanted to say something about that-- about the time that, um, when I was down and out in Paris, didn't know which way to turn after Sabrina's death. You were kind enough to send Ashley to try to reach me, get through to me. That was really an act of caring, an act of love. I'll never forget it.

Nikki: Victor, there's nothing you could have said that would mean more to me. Thank you.

Victor: Anyway... (Sighs) Um, and forget about the fact-- forget about my anger when I found out that you had something with that Deacon fellow, okay? You're strong. You're gonna make it through this. I know you will, okay?

Jack: Yeah. Uh, let me get back to you, okay? Thanks.

Phyllis: Can--can I talk to you? It's--it's--it's a little-- it's kind of urgent. Can you please-- can you please talk to my son? He listens to you.

Jack: Okay, slow down. Slow down. Listens to me about what?

Phyllis: A-about--about giving up his daughter to somebody else to raise. It is not right.

Jack: Wait. It's not right for whom? For you? You're not the most important part of this equation. Lucy is. Listen to me. Daniel made a very brave decision, the best choice for everyone, and I respect him for it, and I'm not gonna disrespect my own brother by interjecting myself on your behalf.

Phyllis: Well, I don't know why you're so blindly loyal to Billy. I don't get it, especially after Katherine offered the C.E.O. position to Victoria. Victoria Newman could be C.E.O. of your father's company. How about that?

Jack: Hold on a second. You really expect me to believe that?

Phyllis: Well, why don't you ask Billy? I guess he doesn't feel like he owes you anything, since you didn't even know.

Jack: Okay, you want my advice?

Phyllis: (Scoffs)

Jack: I'll give you my advice--let it go. For one thing, you're badly outnumbered. For another, you're just plain wrong.

Phyllis: (Scoffs)

Doctor: He's no better or worse off than he was before. His B.P. and heart rate spiked for unknown reasons. With coma patients, that's not uncommon.

Kay: Then you're saying this could happen on its own at--at any time?

Doctor: I've already indicated to the police-- there's no reason to suspect foul play.

Kay: (Sighs) Thank you, Doctor.

Kay: Well, I'm relieved to know that your mother never meant him any harm.

Abby: Katherine, my mom wouldn't e-ever-- to even think that she would-- this is ridiculous. It's ridiculous.

Kay: Well, you know, uh, perhaps she isn't the only one who should keep her distance.

Abby: Whatever that means.

Kay: Well, from what I understand about that ugly stunt you pulled the night before their wedding, you may be as responsible for this tragedy as she is.

Spencer: It's a clear violation of Ms. Abbott's bail.

Judge Di Santo: Does your client understand that attempted murder is a serious charge, and that we weren't just kidding around when we instructed her to stay away from the victim?

Michael: Your honor, my client is--

Judge Di Santo: A simple yes or no will suffice.

Michael: Yes, your honor. Ms. Abbott is well aware of the serious nature of the charges against her.

Judge Di Santo: Then what was she doing in Mr. McCall's hospital room?

Ashley: Your honor, if you would allow it, I would--I would like to explain myself, please.

Judge Di Santo: Mr. Walsh?

Spencer: I have no objection.

Ashley: Thank you.

Judge Di Santo: Go ahead.

Ashley: If you had been in the room with Tucker and me, you would have seen for yourself how much we love each other. I was speaking to him, and he heard me. I know he did. I kissed him, and that's when the alarm went off, but not because he's afraid of me. He heard me, and he loves me. And I can draw him out. Even though he's in a coma, I can do that, but I need to be able to spend time with him to prove that to you. Please.

Deacon: What do you say I top you off there? Uh, maybe a little O.J.?

Abby: (Scoffs) Yes, there is alcohol in the drink, even though I swore I wouldn't drink anymore. Thank you so much for making me feel guiltier.

Deacon: You know, Abby, guilt's a wasted emotion. Why don't you try gratitude?

Abby: Oh, you mean, like, "I am so grateful that 95% of my life sucks"? Like that?

Nick: What the hell are you doing? I don't want you anywhere near this loser. He's the reason my mother's back in rehab.

Abby: (Sighs) I'm--I'm sorry that your mom's having problems, but Deacon was, like, trying to help me. That was it.

Nick: The only person he's looking to help is himself.

Deacon: Look, Nick, I'm just--

Nick: Shut your mouth.

Abby: (Scoffs)

Nick: And don't even think about messing with my sister's head.

Abby: Okay, hi, um, sister. Standing here. Not stupid. Thank you very much.

Nick: What is the matter with you? I'm just trying to look out for you.

Abby: (Sighs) Really? Since when do you care?

Nick: Since always.

Abby: Ever since the lawsuit ended, you and Vicki--poof! You vanished back into your busy lives, okay? You don't care what I'm doing. It's fine. Just don't try to boss me around. (Sighs) And people wonder why I'm drinking.

Abby: (Gasps) (Sighs)

Judge Di Santo: Now you have proven one thing already-- how little respect you have for this court.

Michael: Judge Di Santo, if you'll just hear--

Judge Di Santo: I'm talking, Mr. Baldwin, and while I sympathize with your plight and your desire to help your fiancé heal, the rules pertaining to bail are very clear. The trial will determine if you're a threat to Mr. McCall's safety, but until then, I'm revoking your bond.

Spencer: Thank you, your honor.

Judge Di Santo: The defendant will be held at the county jail until the conclusion of her trial.

Michael: Your honor, if you'll just let me get a word in edgewise, you have--

Judge Di Santo: I have ruled, Counsel, and we have overstayed our time in this courtroom. Judge Welchert is scheduled to come in here shortly to hear family court cases. Please take Ms. Abbott into custody. We're adjourned.

Michael: I will fix this. I will fix this.

Ashley: Excuse me.

Jack: Hang in there, Sis. We are all behind you.

Michael: Ashley, don't give up hope. I will be right there.

Ashley: Jack, think of something, please.

Victoria: (Sighs) Is it just me, or does it seem to be taking a really long time?

Billy: No, it is not just you.

Victoria: (Sighs)

Rafe: Come on. Let's go over the paperwork one more time.

Daniel: Yeah, sure.

Victoria: I want to tell you something. I'm not gonna take the job.

Billy: Seriously? You decided already?

Victoria: You know, part of me really misses the challenge. But I realize I'm not really the kind of person that's good at balancing business and kids. And I think maybe that might be why I lost Reed. (Sighs) But I-I want to get him back one day soon. And I want to raise our daughter Lucy. And I'd love to have Delia around more. That would be nice. Our family is what matters most to me.

Michael: I'll keep pressing for bail, but it's a long shot. Better to focus on preparing for the trial.

Ashley: And how the hell am I supposed to do that when I'm stuck in here?

Michael: Keep reviewing what happened that night. If you think of anything-- listen, if you think of anything, you have to tell me. The tiniest detail could be significant.

Ashley: Okay, I'll try.

Michael: Ashley. Ashley. Hang in there.

[Abby remembering]

Ashley: Abby, it's Tucker!

Deacon: Abby, are you all right?

Nick: Hey, what-- what's wrong?

Abby: Oh, it was me. (Gasps)

Nick: Wha--what?

(Knock on door)

Woman: We're ready to start Mrs. Newman's intake interview.

Victor: Would you kindly give us a moment? Thank you.

Nikki: Oh, God. (Sighs) You know how terrible I am at good-byes.

Victor: I brought you something. It's a birthday gift.

Nikki: Victor. I--you just bringing me here-- I mean, coming all this way is--is the best gift you could have given me.

Victor: Just open it.

Nikki: If you insist. Oh, it's lovely.

Victor: It's a Chinese symbol of courage and strength. So if you ever need any of that, you just take a look at this, okay?

Nikki: I will.

Victor: Come here. This is more difficult for me than it is for you, I think. (Sighs)

Nikki: No.

Victor: I want you to know, my sweetheart... (Sighs) That no matter what happens to us and has happened to us-- and a lot of things have happened to us-- but your strength and my strength, but your strength primarily have held our family together, and it will continue to do that, okay?

Nikki: (Sighs)

Kay: Uh, Jack? Mr. Walsh informed me that Ashley's back in jail.

Jack: Yeah, I'm well aware.

Kay: Then if you'll excuse me...

Jack: Is it true that you offered the C.E.O. position at Jabot to Victoria?

Kay: Word travels fast.

Jack: I thought you were my father's friend. It wasn't enough you forced his daughter behind bars? Now you want to give his company, his life's work over to his rival's family?

Kay: Jack, Ashley has placed herself in this predicament. She is where she is because of the law, not because of me. And Victoria would make a very fine chief executive. Oh, and by the way, she is an Abbott. It'd do you well to try and remember that.

Jack: (Sighs)

Judge Welchert: After an exhaustive search and proper public notification, the biological mother Daisy Carter has failed to come forward to make claim on her child, the infant known as Lucy Abbott. Therefore, it is the ruling of this court that Ms. Carter's parental rights are terminated. Full custody is granted to the biological father Daniel Romalotti.

(Bangs gavel)

Billy: Congratulations.

Victoria: Thank you so much.

Billy: Good work.

Victoria: Thank you. Mwah.

Rafe: Hey.

Victoria: Hey, good job.

Daisy: Hey, little one. Mommy's home. (Sighs)

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

Judge Welchert: You have something to say on this matter?

Kevin: Yeah, I never supported this adoption.

Genevieve: Talk like that could get you a room right next to Lily's.

Daisy: I thought you'd be happy to see me. That was an invitation on your blog.
