Jill: Oh, perfect. That's our favorite champagne. Great. For two, okay? And Mr. Atkinson's suite. And put a rush on that, please. Great. Thanks.
(Safe handle rattling)
Cane: (Quietly) Damn it. Damn it. Damn it. Damn it. Damn it. You think that you would use a birthday or your blighted anniversary or something. Just make it easy for me just once. What'd you use? What did you use?
Colin: Cane? You here?
Cane: (Normal voice) I thought you and, uh, Jill left.
Colin: I sent her on ahead. Decided I'd have one last look around, and I saw your car parked out front.
Cane: Looks like you caught me, huh? So you think that, uh, Genevieve's gonna miss this really expensive vintage bottle of wine, huh?
Colin: Give what Genevieve's done, she's gonna lose a lot more than that.
Cane: You ready to go?
Colin: Not quite. (Sighs) I have a suspicion that, uh, your lingering here has a lot more to do than, well, just having that bottle of wine in your hand.
Cane: Hmm. (Taps on bottle)
Noah: (Sighs) (Sniffles)
Ricky: Noah Newman, right?
Ricky: I'm Ricky Williams. I'm Paul's son.
Noah: Oh, hey, nice to meet you.
Ricky: Yeah, I'm--I'm working for your mom's attorney. That's how I recognized you.
Noah: You're Avery's assistant?
Ricky: I'm, uh... (Laughs) I'm her intern. I'm basically doing research on all the players.
Noah: Really? Yeah, did that--that research mention going up against your sister?
Ricky: Yeah, well, uh... (Sighs) That's how it goes sometimes.
Noah: Mm. And you're helping my mom despite that?
Ricky: That's my job.
Noah: Okay. Yeah, your coffee's on me. (Chuckles)
Paul: Hey, Nick.
Paul: Got a second?
Nick: Yeah, sure. What's going on?
Paul: Uh, well, I was just wondering, uh, were you in court today?
Nick: Oh, for the first day of Sharon's trial? Yeah.
Paul: How did it go?
Nick: Are you asking as Sharon's friend or as Heather's father?
Paul: (Chuckles) Both.
Nick: (Sighs) Rough all the way around, but mostly it was a loss for Heather and a win for Sharon.
Avery: You want to talk about a plea bargain? We've barely begun.
Spencer: As district attorney, it is my duty to be a responsible conservator of our tax dollars.
Avery: Oh, really? Or are you just running scared, because you don't like how things played out today?
Spencer: It's a great offer.
Avery: An acquittal would be better.
Spencer: I have an electorate to answer to. I can't let Ms. Newman get off with nothing.
Avery: Of course you can. She's innocent.
Spencer: Another attorney would be doing cartwheels over this deal.
Avery: Well, I will do a double somersault when we win.
Spencer: Your priority is your client's welfare, not preserving your pride, Avery.
Avery: I'm well aware of my judicial responsibility.
Spencer: As I am of your ambition. Present the offer. No undue influence, or you'll find yourself in a world of trouble.
Avery: I don't appreciate the threats. I know my job. I'll talk to Sharon. The choice will be hers.
Sharon: Thank you for coming.
Victor: I wanted to see how you were.
Sharon: (Sighs) Because I had to face Adam again?
Victor: He said some pretty awful things, didn't he?
Sharon: You know, I loved him so much, Victor, and to have to sit there quietly in court...
Victor: I know.
Sharon: While he accused me of being--
Victor: I can only imagine, but you handled yourself very well, you know.
Sharon: Well, I just-- I couldn't let him win, and Avery did such a great job. Thank you so much for hiring her.
Victor: And you will win this. With her, you will win this. You are stronger than you have ever been.
Sharon: It's just been so difficult already, and this is only day one.
Jill: Colin, where are you? I don't want to overload your voice mail. And I know you can't possibly have been locked into that wine cellar again. So hurry home, Baby. I promise you, I'll make it worth your while.
Colin: You didn't rescue me out of the goodness of your heart.
Cane: Yeah, that's true. It was Jill's idea to come and look for you.
Colin: Well, maybe there's more to it than that. Maybe you sat down with your mother, and you planned to figure out where I would just happen to be.
Cane: Are you actually accusing me of conspiring with my mother against you? Is that--?
Colin: Somebody was helping Genevieve. Somebody was pushing toothbrushes and notes and food through the door.
Cane: And why would I be the one doing that? Tell me that.
Colin: To keep Jill and I apart. Now, you know, we both know that you tolerate me even... (Sighs) Less than your mother does. It's not inconceivable that you would conspire with her to help her.
Cane: You know, I think that you're losing it, old man.
Colin: You helped her once before.
Cane: So why don't you tell me what's going on between the two of you?
Colin: I think she's fed up, pissed off that I've made a new life for myself.
Cane: Oh. So she kidnaps you, she stashes you down here, and... okay. So, uh, why don't you tell me why she did it?
Cane: See, it's funny. I look at you, and you're all calm on the outside, but on the inside, I can just tell you are furious, aren't you?
Colin: As it always is with Genevieve.
Cane: Yeah. You're not married anymore. You're divorced. You're with Jill, and she's with Jack. So why do you care what she does?
Colin: How about you give me a straight answer to the question?
Cane: Fine. I... had nothing... to do... with this. I swear to you on the soul of my sister, the only thing I want is space between you, her, and me! Now is that enough of an answer for you?!
Colin: Yeah. Yes, it is. Can't keep Jill waiting.
Cane: Good. Now do you trust me to lock up, Pops?
Colin: It's your mother's house. You can burn it down as far as I'm concerned.
Heather: You put a deal on the table after one day of trial without consulting me?
Spencer: I don't have to run my decisions through you, particularly when you're the reason why I'm cutting my losses.
Heather: Excuse me?
Spencer: Avery clearly won today. And it doesn't help our cause that your brother's on her team. The guy is doing all her legwork for her-- her profiling the jury, checking witnesses. He probably is the one who dug up Adam's deposition from Sharon's first trial. Made you look like an amateur when they surprised you by pulling it out of nowhere.
Heather: With all due respect, if you didn't like the way I was handling the case, then why didn't you take over questioning Adam?
Spencer: I've chosen the more expedient course.
Heather: Are you really that concerned about going up against Avery yourself?
Spencer: This is not a debate. The deal is in the defense's hands.
Victor: I will stand by you for as long as it takes.
Sharon: You know, ever since they brought me back here...
Sharon: You've been looking after me. You--you've brought me clothes for court. You've visited me constantly. You've hired Avery to represent me.
Victor: Are you objecting to it? (Sighs)
Sharon: Are you doing this because of your testimony in my last trial?
Victor: Or the lack thereof, you mean? I feel very badly about that.
Sharon: Well, you had to protect yourself. I understand that.
Victor: You listen to me. This time, I will testify on your behalf, and I will tell all.
Sharon: Because you feel guilty?
Sharon: Well, then, why do that to yourself, and why go so far and above for me?
Victor: (Sighs) It is for our family and for your children, my grandchildren, all right? You didn't kill Skye Lockhart. You tried to save her after she fell.
Sharon: I wish I had never gone to Hawaii and tracked her down. And I can't believe I did that for Adam.
Victor: (Sighs) It's been done. You thought you loved him, and you did.
Sharon: Well, look what that got me. And you know what?
Sharon: You warned me. You told me that he would end up hurting me like he's hurt everyone else, and you were right. And yet, I gave up everything for him. My kids--I let my kids think I was dead!
Victor: Sharon, because you thought they would be better off without you.
Sharon: Well, I've made a lot of mistakes.
Victor: The mistakes you have made, right or wrong, have always been because of love. And you have suffered dearly for it.
Sharon: I guess I brought it on myself.
Victor: And you have done penance for it. And now it's enough. It has to end, okay? I'll see to it. So whether you like it or not, you're gonna have to put up with me a little while longer.
Avery: (Sighs) There's--
Sharon: Well, I'm getting a lot of positive reinforcement today.
Avery: Well, there's been an unexpected development.
Sharon: What is it?
Avery: The D.A. wants to make a deal with Sharon.
Sharon: What? Already?
Avery: Yeah. Uh, Spencer has agreed to reduce the charges to involuntary manslaughter if you'll plead no contest.
Victor: What would the sentence be?
Avery: Three years minus time served. You'd be out in 18 months.
Victor: (Sighs) What do you think?
Paul: You know, Nick, if--if Sharon isn't guilty, she should be set free.
Nick: Yeah, but you want your daughter to succeed in her work.
Paul: Sure I do. She was so excited to be back in the D.A.'s office, but, um... to catch this case with her brother on the other side...
Nick: Your son is working with Avery?
Paul: Yeah, crazy coincidence.
Nick: Have Heather and Ricky ever met before?
Paul: No. And, um... this isn't exactly the way I would like them to get to know each other. You know, hopefully, they'll be able to separate their professional lives from their... personal ones. And we can have some... fun, friendly, family get-togethers.
Nick: Well, it's gotta be great having him home after all this time.
Paul: Yeah. (Stammers) You know, I've--I've seen Ricky over the years, but, um... I don't know him as I should.
Nick: Yeah, its hell feeling alienated from your kids. I mean, Noah and I have certainly had some issues. (Sighs)
Paul: Not anymore?
Nick: Nah, he's--he's okay with me now, most of the time.
Paul: I could live with that.
Nick: Paul, you have worked things out with Heather, and now you have a great relationship with her, and I know you're gonna do the same with Ricky.
Noah: How weird is it that your first case brought you to Genoa City?
Ricky: (Laughs) Yeah, it's, um, it's totally random that I end up in the same place that I was born.
Noah: Yeah. I mean, look, your--your dad has been a family friend for a long time. He's a good guy.
Ricky: I'm glad to hear it, since my dad is the only person I know in this town.
Noah: Well, I mean, you know your sister.
Ricky: Ah, yes, my sister. Yes, I, uh, I have spent all of ten minutes with her.
Noah: Mm. That will change, trust me.
Noah: Listen, I-I-I could hook you up with some of my friends, show you around if you want.
Ricky: Yeah. Yeah, that would be great. Uh... (Sighs) I got a bit of case law to catch up on, but, um, thank you. Thanks a lot for the offer.
Noah: Yeah. Hey, and thank you for looking out for Mom. I appreciate it.
Noah: See you around.
Heather: Ricky, hi.
Ricky: Hey. I was just talking about you. Chamomile tea.
Heather: Double espresso.
Ricky: Ah. I thought you might want something a little bit more relaxing after court today.
Heather: Were you just heading out? (Sighs)
Ricky: I could stay if you want.
Heather: I have something to ask you, and, um... I don't know. Would you mind if I just got right to the point?
Ricky: Go for it.
Heather: We haven't... (Sighs) Ever spent time together, and--and the first time you show up here, the first time you come to town, we end up on opposite sides of this huge court case, and you don't even give me a heads-up. Why is that?
Avery: Those are the terms. Take 'em or leave 'em.
Victor: What do you think?
Sharon: (Sighs) Well... the idea of exchanging a possible life sentence for 18 months is very appealing, but I'm--I'm bothered by the words "No contest."
Avery: Well, in essence, you're taking responsibility for the crime.
Sharon: So I'd be saying, "I didn't mean to kill Skye, but it was my fault she died."
Avery: That's the truth, yes.
Sharon: 18 months. (Sighs) I'd be out before-- before Faith turned 5, and... you know I only had Cassíe until she was 14, and losing one more day of my little girl's life on some principle just... (Sighs) Would you speak for me in court, or would I--
Avery: No, you would have to make a statement in court.
Sharon: So I'd have to say that I'm guilty, and that would be a lie. So... what do I do?
Avery: Well, I can only clarify the points of law for you.
Sharon: What do you think?
Victor: (Sighs) You have to--you have to decide.
Colin: No, I didn't make the transfer myself. If I did, we wouldn't be having this conversation. It was my wife. Correction--ex-wife-- I shall be in touch.
Jill: I thought I heard room service out here.
Jill: No. This is--this is much better.
Jill: What kept you?
Colin: Oh, some unexpected business. Come here.
Cane: I was just about to call you again.
Ronan: Oh, yeah? What's the emergency?
Cane: I think we finally found the evidence you need. (Sighs)
Victor: Let me ask you... (Sighs) How long does Sharon have to make up her mind?
Avery: Well, we have a little bit of time before we're due back in court. You can think it over, and I'll come back.
Sharon: Wait, Avery, I've already decided.
Sharon: I'm gonna take the deal.
Avery: But you've barely had time to digest this.
Victor: Sharon, you don't have to rush this.
Sharon: And we don't have to wait, either.
Sharon: My life has been so unstable for so long, and this is a sure safe thing, right, Avery? Once we do this, it's settled.
Victor: But what you don't understand is-- what you forget-- an admission of guilt will be attached to your name for the rest of your life.
Sharon: I can live with that.
Victor: But that's a hell of a compromise. I'm convinced that Avery could win this case for you.
Sharon: Okay, but after what happened in my last trial, I have to have more to go on than just a feeling about it. And this is a sure thing. It guarantees my freedom.
Avery: Well, it doesn't right away, no.
Sharon: No, but at least I could--I could mark it off on a calendar.
Sharon: At least there would be freedom at the end of that time. No more running around and hiding. I... (Sighs) I hope you're not disappointed.
Victor: This is your decision. Only you can make it.
Avery: I will, uh... I'll contact Spencer right away.
Victor: All right. Thank you.
Ricky: If you're looking for some kind of a half-sibling conspiracy theory, you're gonna come up empty.
Heather: Look, I just don't understand the surprise factor. I mean, all of a sudden, you're in town, and you're working for Avery, and you don't even bother to e-mail me or Paul or call, for example.
Ricky: (Chuckles) The--the Innocence Foundation, they contacted me. Next thing I know, I'm on a plane. I thought Dad would be happy to see me.
Heather: You knew that I worked for the D.A.'s office.
Ricky: Yeah, but I had no idea you would be prosecuting on this case. And honestly, Heather, even if I did know, I-I wouldn't turn down this internship. This could make my career.
Paul: Whoa. Both my kids in one place. I could get used to this.
Paul: Um... is everything okay?
Ricky: Yeah. Yeah, we were just talking about running into each other at the courthouse earlier today and how I-I blindsided Heather about my internship... unintentionally.
Heather: Of course. You didn't plan it, and I'm--I'm sorry if--
Ricky: I wish we could have met at a Christmas dinner. I really do. But... I'm sorry it didn't turn out that way.
Jill: Do you know what comes next?
Colin: Um... more dessert?
Jill: (Laughs) I think you've forgotten that I am an excellent masseuse.
Colin: Oh, yeah. Heaven.
Jill: So I'm gonna get you all loose and limber, and then I am gonna have my way with you.
Colin: Is that a promise?
Colin: But I want you to know, I felt really bad stuck in that cellar knowing that you were here.
Jill: Oh. I felt really bad that I doubted you so quickly. But I'm gonna have a really good time apologizing. Mm.
Colin: Mm. I gotta... (Sighs) I gotta ask you something.
Jill: Anything, Sweetie.
Colin: (Sighs) (Sighs) Are you absolutely sure that Genevieve is on this marketing trip for Jabot?
Jill: Wow. What a weird question for this particular moment.
Colin: Humor me.
Jill: Yeah, Colin. Genevieve is right where she should be. I would know if she'd missed any important meetings.
Colin: (Sniffs) Okay.
Jill: Now you answer a question. Why the hell would you bring up Genevieve right now?
Ronan: Your mother could have anything--anything in the world stashed in that safe. She could have gold, jewels, stocks--
Cane: When she has locked Colin down there with it?
Ronan: To keep him away from Jill? Yeah. I mean, I-isn't that what Colin thinks?
Cane: No, no, no. It--it's bigger than this. I can feel it. So how do we get in there?
Ronan: No judge in this city is gonna sign off on a search warrant based on what you've got.
Cane: Fine. We bust it open.
Ronan: Well, that's a great idea. That way, anything we find will be excluded when we do make a move on Colin.
Cane: Well, there's got to be another way then.
Nick: (Chuckles) Nice job in court today.
Avery: Thank you.
Nick: Did you come to get something to eat?
Avery: Uh, no. Actually, I'm due back in court, which is why I wanted to see you.
Nick: Is there a problem?
Avery: The D.A. offered Sharon a deal. If she pleads to manslaughter, they'll let her out in 18 months.
Nick: Really? Is she gonna take that?
Avery: Yes, she is. And, uh, in fact, we're due back in court soon to make it official.
Nick: Well, that's fast. I mean Sharon sure that's what she wants?
Avery: She seems pretty certain, uh, which is why I don't have much time, but I want to ask you a favor.
Nick: Name it.
Avery: Would you mind coming back to the courthouse for the hearing?
Avery: Great, and would you bring Noah and Faith with you?
Nick: I don't think I'm comfortable bringing Faith to court.
Avery: Well, the session isn't even open to the public.
Nick: There's no media?
Avery: No, none. There won't be a jury. Uh, it'll be the lawyers, Sharon in front of the judge, and of course, any family and friends that want to come.
Nick: All right, well, I'll think about it, but as far as Noah goes, I mean, that's completely up to him.
Avery: Okay, but you'll speak to him?
Nick: I will.
Nick: Why do you want them there?
Avery: Well, if the situation were reversed, wouldn't you want to see your children?
Nick: Yeah, I would.
Avery: You can't have too much family support in a case like this.
Heather: Well, you-- you must have been overwhelmed, having to pack up and move and start a new job.
Ricky: Yeah, it was crazy.
Paul: So your brother's holding his own?
Heather: (Scoffs) And then some. Avery knew what she was doing when she picked you.
Paul: How are you doing? I heard you had a brutal day.
(Cell phone rings)
Heather: Heather Stevens. She is? Okay. Yeah. I-I'll head right down. Thank you. I have to get back to court. And you should check in with Avery.
Paul: What's going on?
Heather: Sharon Newman is taking a plea.
Paul: When did you offer her that?
Heather: I didn't. Spencer did. (Sighs) Nothing is going as planned today.
Jill: Let me give you a little piece of advice, Colin. When you're about to get lucky with a woman, do not ask her where your ex-wife is. (Sighs)
Colin: Jill, I need to know where Genevieve is supposed to be. She had me stuck in that cellar, and now I'm wondering, what's she up to next?
Jill: Okay, fair enough.
Jill: But call the cops.
Jill: Yeah, the Genoa City Police. They can meet her returned flight, and they can escort her straight to jail, like the lunatic she is.
Colin: (Sighs) No.
Colin: I need to deal with Genevieve... personally.
Ronan: Listen to me, okay? Leave this alone. We are pursuing other avenues in this case.
Cane: Yeah? And what if these papers from Australia never get here?
Ronan: Then we're gonna keep an eye on Colin until he makes a mistake.
Cane: Or we can get into the safe before my mother comes back from her trip.
Ronan: All right, I can't do that.
Cane: Are you gonna blow this? Is that what you're gonna do? Are you gonna let Colin slip through the system again?
Ronan: Cane, Colin's not going anywhere.
Cane: Well, that is great news. That's just wonderful. So in the meantime, Jill falls in love with him again, and the woman I love has to live in fear he's gonna come after my children again. No! No! To hell with waiting.
Jill: You know what? I think, um, we dived into this... (Scoffs) Whatever this is... a little prematurely, 'cause you obviously have a lot of stuff to work out... with Genevieve.
(Blows out candle)
Colin: Well, there are some matters that...
Colin: I need to resolve.
Jill: Yeah, and you want to resolve them personally, don't you? That sounds a little bit like that famous foreplay to me.
Colin: My business with Genevieve has nothing to do with romance. That's-- it's over between us.
Jill: Yeah, so you keep telling me.
Colin: This is all about keeping you and I apart because she knows how serious I am about you.
Jill: Are you telling me that she kidnapped you to keep you away from another woman? She ever done this before?
Colin: She never had any reason to... till you.
Jill: (Laughs) You crazy Aussie. That is one of the most romantic things anybody's ever said to me.
Colin: Thank you.
Ronan: I haven't forgotten how you told me Colin hurt your family. I get that.
Cane: I don't think you get it.
Ronan: Operating with adrenaline and emotion on this-- that's not the way to proceed.
Cane: Since when did you start doing things by the book?
Ronan: You want Colin to be convicted?
Cane: I want Colin gone! (Sighs heavily) Just tell me what to do.
Ronan: Exactly what I've been telling you to do-- be patient.
Ricky: You know, it's great that your strong performance forced the D.A. to deal, but this must be strange for you.
Avery: In what way?
Ricky: I'm the research guy, remember? And you have never had to cut a deal before. You've always won straight out.
Avery: Well, I've lost a few times, too in every situation, you consider what's best for the client.
Victor: Are you ready for this?
Sharon: I'm still reeling.
Victor: It'll be all right. It will.
Heather: Your honor, we are bringing the charges against Sharon Newman to a conclusion.
Judge Morrison: With alacrity, it seems. Ms. Newman, please rise. Have you read the plea agreement, and do you fully understand the terms?
Sharon: I do, your honor.
Judge Morrison: You've been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Skye Lockhart Newman. How do you plead?
Faith: Mommy, Mommy! Mommy here. Hi, Mama! Mommy! Mommy!
Nick: Yeah, here.
Faith: My--my mama!
Nick: Yeah, I know. Okay, here.
Colin: I hope you're enjoying your trip, Genevieve. I just wanted you to know that, uh I received your note. And when you get back, I want to thank you personally for everything you've done.
(Cell phone hangs up)
Cane: (Blowing smoke)
Ronan: Decided not to take my advice, huh?
Ronan: Wow. You never mentioned you knew how to blow things up, Cane.
Cane: You see, you might need a search warrant, Agent Malloy, but... (Sighs) I don't.
Ronan: Nice work.
Faith: Mommy. Mommy.
Faith: Mama. Mama.
Judge Morrison: How do you plead?
Faith: Mama. Mommy. Mommy. Mama. Mommy. Mommy.
Judge Morrison: Ms. Newman, how do you plead?
Sharon: (Sighs) Not guilty. I-I didn't cause Skye's death, and I'm not going to say that I did. If I agreed to that, I could never look my son or my daughter in the face again.
Judge Morrison: Then we are back at trial. (Bangs gavel) Court is dismissed.
Spencer: Don't screw this up.
Faith: Mommy. Mommy. Mama. Mama.
Victor: You surprised me, but I'll support you 100%.
Noah: Why did you change your mind?
Sharon: I shouldn't have ever considered anything else. What I want more than anything in the world is to be with my family and come home and be someone who you are all proud of. And we can do that, right, Avery?
Avery: I will see to it.
Faith: Mama. Mama.
Sharon: Hi, Baby. Come here--
Man: You can't hold the child.
Sharon: Well, it means everything to me that you're here. Thank you for bringing them.
Nick: I'm glad I did. I really need to speak to Avery. Um--
Noah: Here, I'll take Faith.
Nick: Thanks, Dude.
Sharon: Hi, Baby.
Faith: Mama. Mommy. Mommy.
Sharon: I am.
Faith: Mama. Mama.
Sharon: Yeah, I'm right here.
Faith: Mama. Mommy. Mommy.
Noah: You know, it sounds like my dad has a problem with your boss. What's the story?
Ricky: (Sighs) No idea.
Nick: You didn't tell me the whole story.
Avery: I told you the truth.
Nick: You wanted me to bring the kids so that Sharon would change her plea. That was your intent the whole time.
Avery: I thought she could use the family support. And I thought that having Noah and Faith here might get her to reconsider her decision.
Nick: Very clever. Another win for the unbeatable lady lawyer.
Faith: Mommy. Mommy. Mama
Nick: Avery, let me tell you something-- my kids, Sharon's kids, they'll be devastated if Sharon's convicted.
Faith: Mommy. Mommy.
Nick: Make sure that they win, too.
Faith: Down. Down. Down.
Noah: Go down?
Noah: Can we go outside first? Then we'll go down.
Noah: Okay, come on.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Avery: I guess that means we're gonna get to know each other--
Phyllis: Don't do that to her.
Billy: Isn't it best if Victoria hears something from me?
Victor: She has moved on. There's another man in her life.
Daisy: You're Sharon Newman. We have something in common-- Phyllis.
