Nick: Hey, did you, uh, edit that travel piece from Tyler yet?
Deacon: Excuse me. Do you mind?
Nick: Me? No, not at all.
Phyllis: Um, I think what he meant is you're in the way.
Nick: Oh, publishing is a 24/7 commitment, and I got this text saying that I needed to--
Deacon: So you want to, uh, get out of here, go talk somewhere else?
Phyllis: Uh, that would be great, except I was thinking, uh, maybe we can talk later.
Deacon: Like later tonight?
Phyllis: No, no. Later-later.
Deacon: Are you sure about that? 'Cause I was thinking sooner.
Phyllis: Anticipation is half the fun.
Nick: You know, in some cases, it's actually all the fun.
Phyllis: Thank you. I'll call you.
Deacon: You should.
Nick: All right, what they hell?
Phyllis: Please don't. Please, please, don't.
Nick: You send me this text telling me to get over here. Was it because you wanted me to break that up? Or were you just trying to make me jealous?
Judge Kelsey: Mr. McCall, is this or is this not your signature on the Jabot sales agreement?
Tucker: Yes, that is my signature.
Judge Kelsey: Then there's nothing more to discuss.
Tucker: Like hell there isn't.
Judge Kelsey: Uh, would you like to rephrase that?
Tucker: I'm sorry, your honor. But Katherine Chancellor pulled a con. She handed me a mountain of documents for my signature. She must have slipped this ownership transfer agreement into the mix.
Judge Kelsey: Which you then signed.
Tucker: All this says is, "The sale of a McCall, Unlimited asset." There's no mention of Jabot at all. It's--it's deliberately misleading.
Kay: Jabot is a McCall, Unlimited subsidiary. That's a simple fact, your honor.
Tucker: It's fraud.
Kay: Oh, stop.
Tucker: Strike it, Judge Kelsey. Declare this agreement null and void.
Sharon: Who is the visitor that I have? And-- (Sighs) Noah. (Laughs)
Sharon: (Sighs) Are you okay? Is everything all right? Faith and...
Noah: Yeah, she's fine. She's fine. I'm fine. Everything's fine.
Sharon: (Sighs) All right, well, sit. (Sighs)
Sharon: Wow. Look at you. You--you look incredible. I mean, you're-- you're a grown man.
Noah: Well, I saw you back in county.
Sharon: Yeah, but that was different. And to have you here, I... I'm so sorry I--
Noah: Mom, its--its okay.
Sharon: No, but you know what? If there was a way that I could just explain-- if I could make things right--
Noah: Mom, Mom, just stop. I'm just... I'm here because I missed you.
Avery: Good news-- I think I can get Sharon's trial and conviction tossed and request a new trial immediately.
Victor: And not an appeal?
Avery: Mnh-mnh. Appeals process takes too long. I'm gonna get the D.A. to give us a spanking-new trial.
Victor: But you know that the D.A.'s very stubborn, and very determined.
Avery: Mm-hmm. Well, I can convince him the last trial was compromised.
Victor: How can you be so sure?
Avery: Thank you. I know. The ketchup--it's gross. That's just how I take my steak.
Victor: Well, if that's how you take your steak, then, uh, that's how you should enjoy it.
Adam: Plotting and planning, are we? It's not going too well, is it?
Avery: Oh, other than the new trial we're getting Sharon?
Adam: New trial?
Adam: You don't say.
Avery: Get your suit pressed, Newman. You're gonna get some face time with the jury. You can tell them why you destroyed evidence that could have cleared Sharon.
(Babbling brook) (Water splashes)
Adam: Well, I can't testify to something that never happened, let alone at a trial that will never happen.
Victor: She won't be easy on you, Son. I'm looking forward to it.
Paul: One victim, nine suspects.
Ronan: Yeah, and a couple dozen lies.
Paul: (Sighs) Out-and-out fabrications, not to mention withholding information.
Paul: You know, your team did an excellent job of collecting evidence at the crime scene. But I'm just thinking... did they drag the creek?
Ronan: Diane was found facedown in the water. Something could have easily washed downstream.
Paul: I-if they-- if they drag where the creek...
Paul: Washes into the river...
Ronan: Then we just might find something.
Noah: Look, some of the things I said to you last time...
Sharon: No, don't. Look, you don't have to say you're sorry.
Sharon: Your hair... it looks like you grew it out again. I was wondering if you were gonna grow it out.
Noah: Yeah, you'd be happy if I had a bowl cut. (Chuckles)
Sharon: (Laughs) You know what? As long as it's not, you know...
Noah: In my eyes.
Sharon: In your eyes.
Sharon: (Sighs) I dream about you. I dream about you and Faith, that I'm holding you guys again. And then I wake up, and, um, I can see your faces there, you know, for-- for, like, a moment, and then it fades away.
Sharon: I know that it-- it's unforgiveable what I-- what I did, leaving you and Faith, and--and when I saw you here, at first, I thought you were-- you were gonna tell me that you hate me.
Noah: (Sighs) You've been through enough. We all have.
Sharon: You make me proud, grateful. You know, it's not easy to... to come here. The guards and these inmates...
Noah: Yeah. (Sighs) Well, when this visit's over, I get to leave, Mom. I'm not the brave one here.
Nick: Explain to me what I walked in on and why.
Phyllis: Um, okay. Well, if you must know, uh, Deacon couldn't take the hint, and, you know, when the boss shows up, you kind of kill the mood.
Nick: He's a pig.
Phyllis: Ashley's an ice queen.
Phyllis: Oh, I'm sorry. I thought we were playing word association.
Nick: (Sighs) We have already been through this. Ashley is going through a rough time.
Phyllis: And Deacon is a news source.
Nick: I'm callin' B.S.
Phyllis: Right back at ya.
(Computer keys clicking)
Paul: Okay, it has been a while since Diane's murder, and we've had some rain since then.
Ronan: Right, so it's a long shot that we're gonna find anything useful, but if it makes the suspects nervous...
Paul: And starts people talking.
Ronan: Uh-huh. Then it's all worth it. You got this?
Paul: Yeah, I'm on it. Hope you stay close.
Ronan: All right.
Ronan: Yeah? What is this? It's the lab report from Newman's ring?
Man: You're gonna love this.
Ronan: You are right. That is definitely the word.
Adam: If called to the stand, I'll be in court. But I won't hold my breath for a new trial or a subpoena.
Avery: Well, it'll be sooner than later, just so you know.
Victor: You know, Son, the S.E.C. is after you for stock manipulation. The district attorney will charge you with destruction of evidence pertaining to Sharon's case. (Clicks lips) And Detective Malloy will soon prove that you killed Diane. How many years will he get for those three counts?
Avery: Mm, wait. I have a calculator app.
Adam: I guess the dinner special today is delusional thinking.
Avery: You know, I hear things. And I hear that Ronan has another angle on you if all this fails.
Adam: Mm, he's got nothing on me, and neither does the S.E.C.
Man: Adam Newman? Detective Malloy wants you at the police station-- now.
Adam: What can I say? He can never get enough of me.
Victor: Too bad you can't stay for dessert, Son.
Victor: Did you arrange all this, or what?
Avery: No, I was bluffing. (Chuckles)
Nelson: Your honor, Mrs. Chancellor has tried to deceive my client with improper documents before.
Judge Kelsey: You can't have it both ways, Counselor. Mr. McCall, either you're competent to handle your business, including contracts, and your signature means something, or you're incompetent, which means that sales agreement should be voided, and my ruling of your competency, as well. So which is it?
Tucker: Your honor, I am not about to hand over a valuable piece of my company. If you'll just take another look at this agreement--
Anne: The company is being purchased at above market value. What's the problem here?
Tucker: This is business fraud, your honor.
Judge Kelsey: Not my purview. I ruled you competent. You signed it. You deal with it. Adjourned.
Jack: That was for my dad.
Kay: No, Jack. I-I think it was for you.
Jack: You and Tucker signed a mutually beneficial agreement.
Kay: No, he signed documents he didn't understand to protect his pride. And to him, uh, that's a con.
Jack: You having second thoughts?
Kay: I did what had to be done.
Tucker: She won. She beat me. She beat me good.
Ashley: You won. You're the only one in control of your life now. McCall, Unlimited is your company again.
Tucker: Minus your father's company.
Ashley: Tucker, you have to let yourself enjoy the bigger victory. You fought so hard for your recovery. Today, you were validated.
Tucker: Okay, we'll go with that.
Ashley: It's the truth.
Kay: Well, you were very impressive earlier.
Kay: You sounded like your old self.
Ashley: Tucker's always been himself, Katherine, and if you didn't see that, well, I guess that just says more about you than it does about him.
Tucker: You're on notice, Katherine. This Jabot issue is not over.
Kay: Well, one thing is over-- I won't challenge your marriage anymore.
Ashley: Why all of a sudden?
Tucker: Oh, I'll tell you why. Because it was just a tactic to sidetrack me while you slipped in and stole Jabot, wasn't it?
Kay: Let's just say I don't have the need to fight anymore. Now whether the two of you stay together... entirely up to the two of you.
Phyllis: So... you didn't say.
Nick: I didn't say, what?
Phyllis: If Ashley was upset that you bolted.
Phyllis: (Gasps) What? I'm intrigued. Can I not be intrigued? We're not married. It's not a big deal. I mean, you just said to me, "I'm going to see Malloy. I'm going to see Malloy." Three times you said it, and then you admitted you were going to see Ashley. I just don't understand why you lied to me.
Nick: Hmm. You know, there's some fresh pastry in the kitchen, right?
Phyllis: (Scoffs) Don't distract me with baked goods, please.
Nick: All right, look. I was with Ashley, but not for the reason you think. Malloy called us both in because he had more questions about the night Diane was murdered.
Phyllis: Why would he call you in together? That means you know something about each other.
Nick: It's a coincidence. It turns out we were both in the park that night that Diane was killed-- not together, but we were both there.
Phyllis: Wow, so you were there the night Diane died. Not when she died, just that night.
Nick: Are you asking me or telling me?
Phyllis: I'm... I mean, the only person who was there when she was killed is the murderer, right? Which isn't you. Not that I know who it is.
Phyllis: I-I don't know. I just know who it isn't. It's not you. It's not me.
Nick: Ronan's gonna have some more questions for you.
Phyllis: Because... we said we were together that entire evening.
Nick: (Sighs heavily) Yeah. I blew your alibi. But I don't think you need one. But if you have something to tell Ronan, you might want to tell me first.
Tucker: Thanks for coming.
Ashley: Yeah, I wish I could have come a little bit sooner.
Tucker: Why don't we get out of here? Go get a drink or something?
Ashley: Well, coffee might be better. I have some things I need to talk to you about.
Tucker: So Crimson Lights?
Ashley: Sure. You go ahead. I'll--I'll be there in a little bit.
Ashley: So... did you enjoy that?
Jack: That was Katherine's doing. I didn't know the first thing about that Jabot agreement.
Ashley: It was disgusting.
Jack: What can I tell you? Katherine plays rough. You knew that.
Ashley: So you do approve?
Jack: This was not my call, Ash.
Ashley: Right, so you can just ignore Katherine's unethical behavior. Anything just so you can hang on to Jabot.
Jack: Do you have any idea how successful your new line is right now?
Ashley: Enough of a success that it would make you smile, and lean over, and kiss the woman that almost sold Jabot to Victor?
Jack: Like I said, Katherine plays rough.
Ashley: Well, you better remember that, Jackie. She was perfectly happy to cut you from Jabot once before. She wouldn't think twice to do it again.
Phyllis: Confess to you about what?
Nick: Last week, there were some... cupcakes in the kitchen for the interns. Some went missing. Did you happen to take one?
Phyllis: I may have been in the break room at one point.
Nick: Did anyone see you take a cupcake? Like... Deacon?
Phyllis: I didn't take a cupcake. I didn't do it. Now Deacon may have thought he saw me grab one, but I didn't.
Nick: So you've been hangin' out and talking about what?
Phyllis: Cupcakes. Cupcakes. Yeah. Sometimes I like to eat 'em in private.
Nick: In the rain? On a train?
Nick: In the park? In the dark?
Phyllis: Tough guys don't quote Seuss.
Nick: All right. Just because you had a cupcake, it doesn't mean you didn't get it at Crimson Lights.
Nick: No foul play...
Nick: No harm done.
Phyllis: Right. Exactly. That's what I told Deacon. It's not like he can blackmail me over a cupcake.
Nick: He wants you.
Phyllis: Well, he's a pig.
Nick: Well, that pig better keep his snout shut.
Sharon: How is Faith? Has she--has she gotten very tall? How many teeth does she have?
Noah: Well, one minute, she looks just like dad. Then she looks exactly like you. We talk about you all the time. Well, I talk and she listens. But she knows that you love her.
Sharon: You know, if you-- if you come back here, um, I-I don't expect that you will, but if you ever do, then, um, could you bring me some pictures?
Noah: Mm, not as good as the real thing.
Noah: But whatever happened, Faith still needs her mom.
Victor: How the hell are you, Son?
Noah: I'm good.
Victor: Nice to see you, okay? Listen, I'll wait outside.
Noah: No, no, it's fine. I'm about to head out.
Noah: But I'll be back.
Victor: Come here. (Sighs)
Ronan: Why don't you have a seat?
Adam: If you wanted to be "Besties," why don't you invite me to a ball game? You don't have to fake reasons to get me down here.
Ronan: (Chuckles) Well, your Harvard ring-- I mean, that's a real enough reason.
Adam: The lab already said that the mark on Diane didn't match my ring. I assume you've talked to Jack Abbott. Now there's a Harvard alum whose son was shipped out of town, out of the country, taken from him by Diane. If that doesn't scream "Motive," I don't know what does.
Ronan: And your ring's imprint didn't match because of the chip.
Adam: He does remember. (Sighs)
Ronan: You see, I had the lab take another look at your ring here. And they believe that the damage done to it was intentional with one of those tiny flat-head screwdrivers. You know, the kind that people use to tighten glasses.
Ronan: And that the edges of the chip--they're sharp, as in recent, not smooth and round. That happens with time and wear, and that the color of the exposed metal confirms that time frame.
Adam: I already told you, the ring was damaged years ago, and I hardly wear it.
Ronan: All right, I'm gonna put it to you this way-- the lab is positive that the chip in your ring happened after Diane Jenkins was murdered.
Avery: Your office said you'd be here.
Spencer: I'm prepping for court.
Avery: Hmm. This'll just take a second. I want to talk about the Sharon Newman appeal.
Spencer: The appellate court hasn't ordered a new trial. So if you'll excuse me...
Avery: Toss the conviction, and mandate a new trial yourself.
Spencer: (Sighs) Clark, you're amusing, and your record is impressive, but I'm busy right now.
Avery: Well, make time... for your own sake.
Nick: Are you sure you can handle Deacon?
Phyllis: (Scoffs) Have we met? He's a mouse.
Nick: I want to know more about this cupcake in the park.
Phyllis: I want to know what you and Ashley have on each other.
Phyllis: (Sighs) "Restless Style." Hey!
Adam: Just to be clear, you're gonna tell a judge that I committed murder because of a discolored ring?
Ronan: Well, that, and things like means, motive, opportunity.
Adam: I'd like to see you try.
Ronan: You're so cool, you know that? The way that you can just sit there and act like you're not afraid. But you are, aren't you? Because you've done time in the pen before, so you know. I heard that you were such a whiny little punk that your daddy had to come get you out. Daddy's not gonna come get you out this time, is he? You see, Adam, you're going to be arrested, tried and convicted of this, and you're gonna spend the rest of your life in a cell. The evidence against you is adding up. We're this close to you, so get all your crying out now, because once you go to prison, it's too late.
Murphy: Mmm. Mmm, Boy. Mmm. Mmm.
Kay: Must you really make those noises while you eat the pie?
Murphy: I made the same noises at Joe Jr.'s diner. Aids the digestion.
Kay: That's very amusing.
Murphy: You have a piece.
Kay: (Sighs) No, mnh. No, no, no. (Quietly) No.
Murphy: Boy, you're in a mood.
Kay: (Normal voice) So I'm in a mood.
Murphy: Well, who-- who are you angry at? Tucker for getting beat, or yourself for beating him?
Kay: He's to-- totally unable to resume control of McCall, yet he's done so. There's gonna be such repercussions.
Murphy: For him, or for you?
Kay: Would you just eat your pie, Murphy? And y-y-you know, let me be.
Murphy: All right, I'm going to eat my pie.
Kay: Without the noise, please.
Tucker: Hey. I'm glad you made it.
Ashley: (Sighs) It was either come here or continue to berate my brother for siding with Katherine. (Sighs) Thank you.
Tucker: (Exhales slowly) Well, he loves Jabot. Love makes people do crazy things.
Ashley: I wanted to be there for you for the entire hearing, but Malloy wanted to see me.
Tucker: You know, Malloy needs to back off.
Ashley: Tucker, I told him the truth-- that we weren't together the entire night that Diane died. And the truth is, I went to the park that night, and I did see Diane. I... (Sighs) I didn't tell you that night because I wasn't ready.
Tucker: Oh, ready for what?
Ashley: Ready to admit to you that I knew that you'd slept with Diane. And then we found out she was murdered. Malloy's probably gonna want to speak to you because I've blown our alibi.
Tucker: Listen. Today was two steps forward, half a step back. But none of it means a damn thing without you. Now I didn't get back here without pushin' hard. So now here I am pushin' hard again... because I want you back. Can you forgive me?
Noah: Hey, hey.
Jack: Hey, Noah. Thanks for meeting with me.
Jack: Everything all right?
Noah: Yeah. Yeah, absolutely. You--you look psyched. What's up?
Jack: Well, everything's good at Jabot. I guess you've heard your Aunt Ashley has developed a brilliant new cosmetics line.
Noah: I've seen some ads, yes.
Jack: Yeah, print ads. Exactly. We've developed a storyboard for a new commercial, but I'm not crazy about the music they've given me. I'm hoping for, uh, a youthful, sophisticated, acoustic score to go underneath the radio and television ads.
Noah: Are you offering me a job?
Jack: I need the music. It seems to me you're probably looking for something to focus your attention on.
Noah: Hmm. So it's a pity gig.
Jack: I love you, Kid.
Jack: Commercials cost money and they impact sales. I would not be offering you this job if you were not the right man. If it happens to distract you from your situation with your mother, that's a bonus.
Noah: Mm. My situation's getting better. I saw my mom today.
Jack: Well, that's great. I'm sure she appreciated that.
Noah: Yeah, it was-- it was good.
Jack: So what do you say? You on board?
Noah: Oh, can I think about it?
Jack: Some part of you worrying that Victor's head will just explode when he hears this?
Noah: (Chuckles) Like it never occurred to you?
Jack: Oh, I told you. I just want you on board. The rest? Well, that'll just be a bonus.
Sharon: Noah's just grown into such a great young man, hasn't he? (Sighs)
Victor: I'm sure you'll be able to watch Faith grow up, as well.
Sharon: Victor, I-I know that Avery is really talented, but--
Victor: She thinks she can convince the D.A. to give you a new trial.
Sharon: What? I mean, an--an appeal would take so long, but a new trial?
Sharon: Okay, I-I-I don't want to get too excited...
Sharon: Over something that might not happen.
Victor: By the way, this went through inspection already, and it's, um, it's a dress for the new trial.
Sharon: You sound so confident.
Victor: Um, Lauren picked it out. And I'm sure it's very pretty, and you'll look beautiful, and, um, you'll soon be free.
Avery: Looks like someone is getting a new trial.
Sharon: Well, Victor told me you were going to the D.A., but he can't have made a decision already.
Avery: Well, Walsh doesn't have much of a choice. He either instigates a new trial or he gets a spanking from the appellate court.
Victor: Whoa. What do you have on him?
Avery: Social media. It's quirky, isn't it? People let their guard down no matter how many times you warn them that's once it's on the internet, there is no turning back.
Sharon: Well, wait a minute. She was on my jury.
Avery: Mm-hmm. And so was this woman.
Victor: And this says they're--they're pals.
Avery: Uh-huh, and those pals...
Avery: Passed notes online about Sharon's alleged guilt during the trial. That's totally not kosher.
Victor: Are you serious?
Avery: So I subpoenaed them to answer questions, and guess what? Spencer Walsh did the same thing. He knew they discussed the case during the trial, and he didn't do a damn thing about it. That's jury misconduct. D.A. knew all about it. Old trial out the window very soon. (Laughs)
Victor: If you feel relieved now, that's all right.
Sharon: You know what? I-I can't-- I can't let myself go there. I--not until this is for sure, but I am very hopeful, and I-I really appreciate everything you've done, Avery.
Avery: I'm a soldier. He's the one fighting your war.
Victor: I let you down once. It will never happen again.
Sharon: I believe you.
Ronan: You can go now.
Adam: Oh, I'm dismissed?
Ronan: Go away. But don't--
Adam: Don't leave town. Yeah, I know the drill. Seriously, next time, let's just get beers. I'm gonna head out and make us some friendship bracelets.
Paul: Okay, I got a couple more baskets where this came from. We got everything we could from where the creek feeds into the river, but it all kind of looks like this.
Ronan: Okay, well...
Ronan: Is there anything pertinent?
Paul: It's gonna take 'em a while to test this stuff, so...
Ronan: All right, well, I'll sign off on the overtime. Get it done.
Paul: Okay. Let's get it to the lab, huh? Take that. So, um, what was Adam doing here?
Ronan: He was maintaining his title as our lead suspect.
Murphy: Want to go down to the gym, go a couple of rounds with the big bag? I mean, it works for Victor.
Kay: You're not funny.
Murphy: And you're not mad. You know, I-I think you're feeling guilty. You're upset because your son took a couple of bumps in the road, bumps you didn't exactly smooth out for him. It's okay to admit that you don't feel great about it. You can be human, you know?
Kay: Eh, to be human... highly overrated.
Murphy: Hey, I know you.
Kay: (Whispers) Don't tell anybody.
Murphy: (Laughs) "Mum's" the word.
Ashley: We're not apart because I don't love you. Love was never the issue.
Tucker: Then listen to me. I'll do whatever it takes, I promise.
Ashley: Now's not the time for us to be making promises, Tucker.
Tucker: (Sighs) Wow. You know, my whole life, I never needed a soul. Now I don't think I can live without you.
Ashley: I need more time.
Phyllis: Is the day over yet?
Nick: It can't be too soon.
Phyllis: Thank you for calling Gloria and making sure that Deacon wasn't here. That would have been awkward. Speaking of which, I feel the need to wash my hands.
Nick: Hmm. Maybe you could use some disinfectant, too.
Phyllis: I think so-- from spending time with him.
Phyllis: (Chuckles) I'm going to the ladies' room. Excuse me.
Nick: Sure. (Sighs)
Avery: Nicholas Newman?
Nick: Yeah, can I help you?
Avery: Avery Clark. I'm your ex-wife's attorney. I'm about to get her a new trial.
Nick: Oh, great. My kids are gonna love that. You know, I'm just with my editor. I'll, uh, I'll go get her. She's gonna want to hear this, too.
Avery: Uh, off the record?
Nick: Yeah, cool. I'll be right back.
Phyllis: Hey. I am no longer unclean.
Nick: Good. Glad to hear it. Look, Sharon's got this new lawyer, Avery. She's gonna give us some news. She's, um... well, she was here.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Noah: You're punishing Mom for choosing Adam over you.
Jack: What do you say we take this celebration upstairs?
