(Front door closes)
Victor: You're a little early. Help yourself to breakfast, Michael.
Noah: Actually, it's me, Grandpa.
Victor: Noah, my goodness. What a nice surprise. (Chuckles) Hey. I thought I'd see more of you now that you're back at your mother's house.
Noah: Yeah, I've been with Devon a lot, working on some new tracks.
Victor: Yeah? Have you heard of-- Tucker, he's out of his coma.
Noah: That's great.
Victor: Yeah. It should be good for you and your music. Are you here to get some breakfast?
Noah: Uh, I'm good today, thanks.
Noah: But I was wondering if you'd seen Abby. I can't seem to track her down anywhere.
Abby: I'm sorry, is this a-a regular thing to wake up at the crack of dawn for fun times at group therapy?
Woman: It's not that early.
Abby: To be awake? Or to meet strangers and bare my soul? Because noon is way too early for one, and it never works for another. Look, I know you hear this all the time, but I really, really don't belong here. So maybe I could just... I could just hang out in my room, sleep a little, and, you know, I'll read some self-help books for brownie points.
Woman: You came here for a reason, Abby.
Abby: (Sighs) Yeah, uh, this isn't it. Pinkie swear.
Diane: Hello, Michael.
Michael: I just blatantly ignored you, and you didn't even notice enough to comment.
Diane: Victor's war against me is his problem, not yours.
Michael: Mm, odd, because I was the one who had to go to D.C. and deal with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and, yes, that was me who missed Fenmore's baseball game.
Diane: Ohh. So quit. Tell the grump you've had enough, huh?
Michael: Two singles and a double-- saw the video.
Diane: (Laughs) Victor's wasting his time. He's wasting your time. I haven't done anything that the S.E.C. or any grand jury would even be interested in.
Michael: Hey, Sweetie Pie, it's me. I've been rooting for you since you came back to town, and when things didn't pan out, if you recall, I was the one who suggested that you leave before your life went all to hell.
Diane: Well, I'm not there... yet.
Michael: Well... I hope to God your hands are clean.
Michael: But do I actually believe it?
Diane: What if I crossed my heart?
Michael: (Chuckles) Then I'd duck and cover just in case lightning strikes.
Michael: Listen to me. If you, Jack, and Adam did conspire to manipulate the share price... and if you really believed that Victor would let you get away with it, then you weren't just being reckless. You were being stupid, and that's a fatal mistake.
Neil: Well, Katherine, this is incredible news, huh?
Kay: Uh, well, there are a lot of people pulling for him. I'd rather assume, uh, God bowed to-- to some incredible pressure. Neil, um, Sofia and I have had our issues, but I know how much she adores him.
Neil: Yeah. Listen, uh, the reason I came-- I have some documents for you to sign.
Neil: But I imagine it must be the furthest thing from your mind.
Kay: (Chuckles) My son is conscious, and, by God, that is the only thing on my mind.
Ashley: Mine, too. Isn't it wonderful?
Neil: Hi. Hey, Ashley. Mm. Good to see you.
Ashley: Mm. You, too. So how is he?
Kay: Tired, uh, weak, you know, a little confused...
Ashley: Oh, okay.
Kay: To be expected. Doctors have ordered some tests, and, uh, right now, we just go slow with the questions and, um, information. Um, he's been asking for you.
Ashley: I wanted to stay away so he could rest for a while, and then, of course, I had to go to the chapel and thank God for bringing him back to me.
Ashley: And I want to thank you for letting me see him.
Kay: Well, you love him.
Kay: And he needs that right now.
Neil: Look at you. Even after all this, you still look lit up from the inside, right?
Ashley: (Clicks tongue) Ohh.
Neil: Love looks good on you, Ashley, I gotta say.
Ashley: You're sweet.
Ashley: Thanks. Excuse me.
Neil: Mm-hmm. Well, well, Katherine. That was a nice thing you did, letting, uh, Ashley in to see Tucker.
Neil: The charges against her haven't gone anywhere, even if she did get released on bail, right?
Kay: Mm, well, Tucker woke up when Ashley was in his room. For that, I can get over myself. (Chuckles)
Neil: Okay, um, so no more questions or concerns?
Kay: About when Tucker got hit?
Kay: (Chuckles) Oh. Oh, I've got more questions than ever. Right now, uh, let's forget about the documents, because there is something that... I really need to do. Ugh, gravity.
Ashley: Hi. How you feeling?
Tucker: Just fine now.
Michael: Thank you.
Devon: Hey, Michael.
Michael: Hey, Devon. Good to see you.
Devon: How you doin', Man? Good to see you, too.
Michael: Who are you meeting? Your dad? Lily?
Devon: Uh, Noah, actually.
Michael: Well, it's great to have you both back in town, even though I know it's only until your album drops, right?
Devon: Album drops.
Michael: Album drops. Is my industry lingo convincing?
Devon: (Laughs) Yeah, for a second, I thought you were a producer for--you know? (Chuckles)
Michael: Thank you for humoring me.
Devon: Yeah. See ya.
Michael: (Laughs) See you later. Uh... bon jour, Juliet. C'est moi, Michael Baldwin. Yeah, I know. I've been practicing. Is Eden home? Uh, there's some trust documents we need to-- oh, traveling? For how long? No, no, she didn't mention that when we spoke last. Uh, where'd she go? (Chuckles) "Around"? (Speaking French) Well, yeah. Well, could she be any less specific? Do you have any idea when she'll be back? All right, um, could you have her call me when she checks in? (Speaking French) Merci. Au revoir.
Noah: Rehab? (Sighs) Like--like grandma? What, are they together?
Victor: Well, they're at different facilities.
Victor: But, you know, Abby needed the rest badly.
Noah: Yeah, just some rest. That's why she would take off without telling me.
Victor: You know, she probably felt a little uncomfortable talking about it.
Noah: Well, Abby can talk to me about anything... but only if I'm around to listen and not in the studio 24/7.
Noah: Jeez, no, this is about Tucker and-- and that car accident and her mom getting locked up.
Victor: Listen, whatever happened...?
Victor: And whatever happens, when she comes out of that, she'll be all rested, and then the two of you can talk all you want, all right?
Noah: Yeah. Hey, thanks for lettin' me know. I'll talk to you later.
Victor: Okay, you have a good day, all right?
Noah: (Sighs) You, too.
Kay: (Sighs) (Chuckles) Noah. How nice to see you.
Noah: Good to see you, as well. Hey, I just heard the news. I'm really glad about Tucker.
Kay: Yeah, so am I. Ahh... (chuckles) Ah. Ah. Ah.
Victor: Katherine, what brings you by?
Kay: Well, tell me something. May I?
Victor: You bet.
Kay: (Sighs) Tell me why Tucker's first memory when he woke up...
Kay: Was of Abby running him down.
Woman: Abby, hi. Have a seat. We're about to start. Since this is your first day, we'll all make it as easy as possible for you. The role of Eden will now be played by Jessica Heap.
Eden: Sorry. Sorry. Did someone save my seat?
Woman: Hello there.
Woman: It's not like you to be late. Glad to have you here.
Noah: Yo, Dude, sorry I'm late.
Devon: Hey, that's all right.
Devon: How are you doing? 'Cause from here, it doesn't look good.
Michael: Oh, Noah, I'm glad you're here. Um, well, I don't even know if you still keep in touch with Eden or not.
Noah: Well, uh, well, no, not that much. Not at all, really.
Michael: Oh, okay. Uh, she's traveling, and I'm trying to track her down. Any thoughts on where she might be?
Noah: She didn't tell her Aunt Juliet?
Michael: Well, I figure her ashram, "Let it flow" vibe kind of kicked in, and she didn't have firm plans.
Noah: Hmm. Well, I guess there were a few folks in England she got pretty close with. I can check in with them, if you want.
Michael: Okay. Great, great. It's not urgent. I mean, she's probably Euro passing her way to adventure. The benefits of being young and carefree. It's disgusting. Well, keep in touch.
Eden: I got stuck in K.P. We were trying to tempt "Eating disorder girl" to sneak a few bites. It worked.
Woman: You missed introductions. Eden, Abby. Abby, Eden. Abby, tell us a little bit about yourself-- whatever you're comfortable with.
Abby: Um... well, it's hard for me to pretend I'm this total stranger when clearly, I'm not. "Naked Heiress," Newman lawsuit-- I know I looked different on TV. I'm not exactly a fan of this natural look, either.
Eden: Oh, is that what you're in for? Addiction to foundation?
Woman: You'll see we're very casual around here.
Abby: Awesome. (Chuckles) Uh, as for what I am in for, um, evidently, I've been partying too much according to my dad, so I am here to make him feel better. Silver lining-- rehab is totally the new black. It comes right after sex tape, right before the talk show circuit pity party. So I think a little relaxation, meditation... (Snaps fingers) Bam. I'll be as good as new. I definitely won't be here long enough to make friends.
Woman: Uh, you all sit tight for a minute. There's something I need to deal with.
Abby: Are you kidding me? You're back on U.S. soil? What, they don't have rehab in Paris?
Eden: You know, that was-- that was really good before, your whole "I'm here to make daddy happy" spiel, because no one in rehab is ever in denial.
Abby: Mm-hmm, right. Well, I am so happy that you have embraced your inner bulimic ever since Noah dumped you, but I'm sorry. Not all of us are dripping with issues.
Eden: Sensitive as always, I see.
Abby: Calling it like I see it. Now your turn.
Eden: Noah's a great guy, okay? But trust me, I've moved on... a couple times. My being here has nothing to do with him.
Abby: Does your brother know that you're doing weigh-in this side of the Atlantic?
Eden: My problems are my business, okay? And no one in Genoa City better hear about this from you.
Abby: (Scoffs) (Scoffs)
Victor: Of course Abby wasn't driving. Tucker is confused. Abby and Ashley were both in the car.
Kay: Tucker knew exactly what he was saying. I went off to ask Abby about those things directly, but she wasn't home.
Victor: Well, she is in rehabilitation right now, okay? She needs to recover from all the enormous stress she's been under. You understand all that.
Kay: Sounds like a press release to me, you know? Convenient timing. Uh, Ashley is released from jail, and Tucker regains consciousness--
Victor: Katherine, what are you implying? That Abby's hiding something?
Kay: Well, uh, is she?
Victor: She's not denying that she was in the car when Tucker got hit. That's not the point. Ashley was driving. She confessed to it. She went to jail for it. Now she's out on bail, out of her cell. And you're going around looking for someone else to accuse.
Kay: You could have just said no, Victor. "No, Abby has nothing to hide."
Kay: But you didn't. You know, I'm getting sick and tired of being given the runaround by-- by you and--and-- and so many other people. It is so infuriating, and it's over. As of now, Victor, it's over.
Victor: Katherine, Katherine, listen to me. Tucker is alive. He's out of the coma. That's the most important thing. What else does anything matter?
Kay: It matters to me. And once upon a time, it would matter to you, Victor, my friend.
Victor: (Sighs) Katherine, Tucker is alive and out of the coma. That's what's important now.
Woman: Hi. Mr. McCall, I've got a release for you to sign now that your mother's no longer in charge.
Ashley: Is this really necessary? I mean, do you feel like you're up to this?
Tucker: Oh, if I can't lift a pen, we got bigger problems than we thought.
Ashley: Okay. I'll get you your glasses, right?
Ashley: Has anybody ever told you how sexy you happen to look in reading glasses? He really does. I bet you've been told that a lot, haven't you, actually? What's wrong? Is it your eyes? Does your head hurt?
Tucker: It's, um, I guess--I can see the sentences...but I-I don't understand what they mean. Wh-what's going on? Is this normal?
Woman: Let me get the doctor for you.
Ashley: It's gonna be okay.
Ashley: You know, you were in a coma for a long time. It's gonna take a while for you to reacclimate.
Tucker: Yeah, okay, well, that's right. You're probably right. It's, like, uh, maybe like jet lag.
Tucker: I get a little rest, everything will be fine.
Ashley: Yeah. Yeah.
Neil: Uh, I'm a little less than proud of myself lately, you know? Um, things have been a little crazy for me.
Leslie: No, no, really. No need to explain. I've been up to my eyeballs with work. I was actually gonna apologize to you, too, for being so out of touch. Feel better?
Leslie: Mm-hmm. And you still have my number.
Neil: I do. I do, indeed.
Leslie: Okay. Just give me a call, you know, when things ease up for you. Maybe they'll ease up for me, too, one of these days.
Neil: Something to look forward to.
Leslie: Mm-hmm. All right.
Leslie: (Sighs) Sorry I'm late.
Diane: So you have all the information about these ridiculous accusations? As if I could ever possibly make the stock market go haywire.
Leslie: I read the documents, yes. (Sighs)
Diane: So how quickly do you think you can get me out of these charges?
Leslie: You want that, or do you want the truth? Because the truth is, it doesn't look good.
Noah: Abby lands in rehab, and I have to hear it from my grandfather.
Devon: Well, Noah, it's not like Abby was bangin' on your door and you just put on headphones to tune her out, you know? Stuff happens.
Noah: (Sighs) I didn't even know my grandma was drinking. She gave my mom so much grief about it right before she died.
Noah: And now Abby--
Devon: Noah, listen, Man, you're talkin' to the guy who had no idea about all the craziness goin' on with his own sister, okay? I know how you feel. I do.
Devon: Just sometimes, you know, the fact is, I-it's easier to deal with this stuff from a distance.
Noah: Easier for who? You know, if I'd have been a halfway decent friend, maybe Abby wouldn't be surrounded by strangers now.
Abby: Well, it doesn't look like you're exactly a newbie. How long have you been here?
Eden: A couple months.
Abby: Dear God, a couple months?
Eden: What? It's not exactly a prison. I mean, no one's here against their will.
Abby: Look at you. You're so protective of this place. Does it remind you of the ashram? Lots of lotus positions and deep thoughts?
Eden: Oh, that's later. First, we hold hands and weep in unison.
Abby: You know, maybe if I ponder it deeply enough, I might be able to figure out how on earth you and Noah ever became a couple, because for the life of me, I still don't see it.
Eden: You know, this has been so much fun, really. But how about from now on, we just stay out of each other's way?
Abby: Now that is freaky. You just said something I think I could actually agree with.
Woman: I'm glad you two have already met. Eden, as senior member of the program, you'll be Abby's buddy.
Abby: Whoa. (Chuckles) Whoa. This--this is not preschool, and I don't need a buddy, but thank you.
Woman: You and Eden will take meals together.
Woman: You'll go to group together, and you'll partner for exercises.
Abby: Oh, uh, like--like I'm gonna fall backwards and pray that she's gonna catch me? Because I bruise easily.
Eden: You know, I've been thinking of adjusting my schedule, and I don't even know if I can, um...
Woman: This'll be good for both of you.
Michael: So Ashley was covering for Abby all along?
Victor: This was an accident, Michael. No doubt about that.
Michael: I asked Ashley directly if she were covering for anyone. After what she did for her father, I'd have to be an idiot not to wonder. She looked me right in the eye. She didn't even blink.
Michael: She insisted she was to blame for everything.
Victor: Mm-hmm. I know Abby disliked Tucker, but this was not attempted murder, all right? This was an alcohol-induced accident.
Michael: If Abby disliked Tucker enough to make him believe that Ashley was cheating on him and she was drinking at the time...
Victor: (Sighs) So? This case must not go to trial, Michael.
Michael: Well, if I had been able to get Ashley off earlier, I would have, Victor.
Victor: Well, but isn't it true that you are working under somewhat restrictive rules?
Michael: (Chuckles) You mean that whole "By the book" thing? And you'd like me to employ more creative means?
Victor: You're getting the drift, Mr. Baldwin. Bottom line-- Ashley must not go to trial. I don't want her to get hurt, okay? Rules be damned.
Michael: You know, it's such a joy when you ask me to circumvent the legal system. It doesn't put my relationship with the bar at risk in the least.
Victor: It's not a risk if you're cautious... which I know you will be, right?
Michael: (Sighs) Well, all right. We can start by talking to Tucker. He's awake now. If the victim himself insists that it was an accident...
Victor: Yeah, but Tucker already said that he saw Abby behind the wheel, so who knows what he'll come up with now?
Michael: There is one other avenue to pursue.
Victor: What's that?
Michael: There was another witness that night.
Victor: Oh. Oh. Diane Jenkins. I'll be damned. What do you have in mind?
Diane: I had some cramps. I got in the ambulance. Cramps went away. There's no crime in that.
Leslie: And it's that simple, Diane? Really? I'll do everything I can to clear you, but I am not gonna pretend it's a cakewalk. Juries can be unpredictable. You need to prepare yourself for some unpleasant realities.
Diane: Yeah, like, um, like a hefty fine.
Leslie: (Sighs) Like a jail cell.
Diane: (Sighs) I... I cannot be locked up.
Leslie: Martha Stewart survived.
Diane: Do I look like I knit?
Leslie: Everyone needs a hobby.
Diane: Katherine. How can I help you?
Kay: Tell me about the night Tucker almost died.
Ashley: I think those tests went well, don't you? I mean, of course it's gonna be a while before we find out, but I think it's gonna be great.
Ashley: Oh, aren't those beautiful?
Tucker: Huh. Nice posies.
Tucker: Who are they from?
Ashley: Let's see. Um... okay, they say, "Tucker, good to hear you're awake. Get back to work. Warren." (Laughs)
Tucker: That sounds like Warren.
Ashley: Yeah, well, I'm sure they're not gonna be the last flowers, you know. You're a big news item now.
Tucker: Marry me.
Ashley: I plan to. You're not gettin' off the hook that easy.
Tucker: Now. Marry me right now.
Devon: Well, my man, you look worse than you did before my rousing pep talk. I'm sorry.
Noah: (Chuckles) (Sighs) Well, you get it, so that's enough at this point.
Devon: Hey, all this guilt that you're feeling-- are you sure it's just about Abby?
Noah: (Sighs) Look, of course there's other stuff mixed in. You know, I-I went to Paris and then New York to get away from my family's drama, making it all about me and how embarrassed I am by them. That's real classy.
Devon: No, I don't think everyone thinks you made it about you.
Noah: (Sighs) Look, once during this really bad fight, Eden slams the door in my face and yells that I'm like every other self-centered Newman. That's one of the reasons I came back to the states-- to prove it was a bunch of crap. You know, but the thing is, since then, all I've done is prove how right Eden was.
Abby: (Sighs) I can't sit here and watch her ruin her whole life.
Victor: Sweetie. Sweetheart, you're making it worse than it actually is.
Victor: The case against your mother is full of holes. Diane Jenkins, one of the key witnesses, is a very unreliable person, and the police know that.
Abby: What about Tucker? He looked me in the face before I ran him down.
Victor: Tucker had severe trauma to his head. He may not remember a damn thing. Don't you und--
Abby: (Scoffs) you are trying to make me think that confessing would be a waste of time, but it is the right thing to do. It's--it's the right thing to do.
Victor: No, it is not.
Victor: Please step back for a moment. Take a look at the picture as a whole. Let us wait until we know what Tucker says, all right? Then you and your mother and I will decide what is best for you. Is that a deal?
Eden: (Sighs) So you'll--you'll leave here, go back to your room, and a staffer will go through your purse...
Abby: I'm sorry, what?
Eden: With you there. Make sure you don't have a cell phone, booze, smokes, um, gum, candy, soda--
Abby: (Scoffs) What, all the gum junkies in here?
Eden: No makeup, nail polish, nail files, or a-anything sharp.
Abby: I'm sorry, what do they think I'm gonna do with a nail file?
Eden: Those are the rules, okay? Just deal with it. Or don't. I mean, I don't get demerits if you screw up.
Abby: This place is supposed to be cush. It's supposed to be a place for me to relax, not the funny farm or cell block eight. You know, I checked myself in. I can just check myself right back out.
Eden: All righty, then. Bye.
Abby: (Scoffs) Shut up. (Sighs)
Eden: You know, you look a little rough without makeup, just so you know.
Abby: Does this place work, or not? Can you tell me that, "Bud"? "Buddy"?
Eden: Well, I'm not the same person I was when I got here. So, yeah, it works.
Diane: I've told the police everything I know about that night. What more is there to say?
Kay: Hmm. Well, you said, um, Ashley was behind the wheel, Diane.
(Cell phone alert chimes)
Diane: Yeah. Yeah. Of course she was. Um, I have to deal with this. Excuse me.
Kay: Yes, of course.
Neil: Katherine, everything all right?
Kay: Uh, well, uh, Tucker's awake. Nothing's resolved.
Neil: Yeah. You want to sit down for a minute?
Kay: Yeah, that's a good idea.
Neil: Okay. So I'm sure that you've had other things to discuss with him, but have you gone over any of the changes that you made at McCall?
Kay: Well, doctors prefer that we don't overload him with information.
Neil: Okay. So how do we proceed?
Kay: Continue as we have been.
Neil: You've been on target so far.
Kay: But, you know, Neil, my faults are absolutely legion. But I adore my son. And every decision I have made has been for his sake. But now that he's awake, I... I really think he's going to need my protection more than ever.
Chaplain: Is there anything you two would like to say to one another before I pronounce you husband and wife?
Ashley: I'd like to say something. I almost lost you that night, and if I didn't know then how crucial you are to my life, like water and like air, I do now. From that night that you helped me videotape Faith until this very moment, I've grown to need you more and more. I was trying to figure out what I was gonna do if I lost you, if you didn't wake up, or if you did and... you didn't want me anymore, but you do want me.
Tucker: More than anything.
Ashley: I was wrong before, because this is the perfect wedding. I don't need stupid flowers, and I don't need a bunch of twinkling lights. I mean, I'll take all these beeping monitors and these elegant linens any day.
Tucker: Only the best for my beautiful bride.
Ashley: You are the best. We've got a lot of work to do, but we're gonna get it done, and then we're gonna live our life. It's gonna be such a good life.
Tucker: I thank God for you and for a good life... always.
Abby: Wow, flowers, trees, no barbed wire. It's like heaven.
Eden: Well, the door's over there.
Abby: What about you? When do you take your big walk to freedom?
Eden: Oh, are you gonna miss me?
Eden: Uh, a couple days or so.
Abby: Oh, I'm crushed, really. You gonna pass through Genoa City on your way back to Paris, or would that blow your whole "I'm not here" cover story?
Eden: Just do like I said and forget you saw me.
Abby: So you are really not going to call your own brother?
Eden: No, I'll touch base with Michael when I'm back in Paris.
Abby: That's kind of secretive, kind of creepy, don't you think?
Eden: Not everyone's an exhibitionist, Abby.
Eden: And Noah doesn't need to know about this, either.
Abby: Noah? Hmm, it is interesting that you should bring him up since you've had so many boyfriends since him.
Eden: Noah inherited his dad's rescue gene, and I don't need saving. Hey, there's no reason for us to ever see each other again.
Noah: Hi, uh, yeah. How do I go about visiting a patient at your clinic?
Devon: Hey, hey.
Neil: Mm-hmm. Uh-oh, what-- the fa--the face looks a little familiar.
Devon: That's hilarious. That's funny. That's why I called you, though.
Neil: Mm. So I could bust your chops?
Devon: No, no, because, uh, I haven't been around enough, you know? Not for you, and not for Lily, so here I am.
Neil: Nice. I can handle that.
Diane: This is ridiculous. I can't be summoned like some servant. And you escorting me-- talk about demeaning.
Michael: I know you're upset about the S.E.C. investigation, and rightfully so.
Diane: (Sighs) You know what? I think that I should go right-- right about n--
Michael: No, no, no, you don't want to do that. You don't want to do that. No.
Diane: (Laughs) Actually, I do. I really do.
Michael: No, trust me, you don't want to do that.
Victor: He's right, you know. The problems you created for yourself when you aligned yourself with my enemies are considerable. I can make them go away.
Kay: Oh, dear God. Let me through, please. Let me through.
Chaplain: Mr. McCall, you may kiss your bride.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Nick: What the hell is the matter with you?
Victor: Can we trust one another? That is what I believe you're saying.
Tucker: While I was laying here incapacitated, you undermined my judgment?!
