Proofread By Emma

Ashley: Katherine?

Tucker: What about Katherine?

Ashley: Is that why you couldn't sleep last night? She's been playing so many games. It would give anybody insomnia, you know.

Tucker: (Sighs) Katherine I can handle. I'll get you some more.

Ashley: Well, when the judge rules in your favor, I want to talk to you a little bit more about me coming back to Jabot as C.E.O. You know, with all the fighting about who owns the company, the employees must be so unnerved, so the first thing I want to do is calm the waters.

Tucker: Ashley, listen, I don't want you to get your hopes up.

Ashley: Honey, I promise you. I'm just going to sit down with Jack, okay? I'm gonna assure him that I just want to help.

Tucker: I haven't told you everything about the lawsuit.

Abby: "The Naked Heiress goes to college." How unbelievably sick is that?

Devon: It's crazy, 'cause I didn't even realize that they had a degree in shopping. (Chuckles)

Abby: (Scoffs) Oh, well, you just wait until I have my master's...

Devon: Okay. Mm-hmm.

Abby: In brain surgery or astrophysics, and then we'll see who's laughing.

Devon: It's still gonna be me. (Laughs)

Abby: (Laughs)

Devon: Hey, did, uh, did your mom tell you that Tucker is suing Katherine to get Jabot back? They're starting arbitration, like, today.

Sofia: (Sighs)

Neil: How's the baby?

Sofia: Well, I had a sonogram yesterday. (Sighs) Everything's fine. I'm just takin' it one day at a time.

Neil: All right, um, Sofia, I called this meeting to see if our two companies could settle this lawsuit out of court.

Sofia: Well, provided Katherine reversed the sale of Jabot and returned it to McCall.

Neil: Are you saying that there's no middle ground, Sofia?

Sofia: Tucker is the offended party here. Why should he compromise?

Neil: Because Katherine has done everything by the book. He has no case.

Sofia: We're just gonna have to wait and see, I guess.

Neil: You used to have integrity. What changed? How can you defend what the man is doing?

Sofia: Maybe it's because Tucker is the only man who's got my back.

Jack: So Tucker is suing you.

Kay: Yes. (Sighs) He claims, um, by selling Jabot, I was acting out of self-interest instead of, uh, doing what was best for McCall, Unlimited.

Jack: So what happens now?

Kay: Well, Judge Kelsey has agreed to arbitrate the hearing today. And, um, Tucker and I have agreed to-- to abide by his ruling.

Jack: And you can live with that?

Kay: Well, you see, if you would provide your expert opinion as C.E.O., that McCall was lucky to have sold Jabot in this economy for twice the price that it was worth at the time, I don't see any reason why the judge would overturn that ruling. What I'm saying is that Chancellor would still retain ownership, and it'd put an-- put an end to this nonsense.

Jack: Then you're asking me to testify on your behalf?

Kay: Yes, Jack. I mean, that's simple enough. Is there anything about it you don't understand?

Jack: No, I understand perfectly.

Kay: I certainly didn't mean to sound so condescending.

Jack: No, you never do, Katherine.

Kay: I realize I am not shy about asserting my authority lately. And if I haven't made it clear how much I value you, then truly, it's just been a misunderstanding between the two of us.

Jack: Thank you for making that clear.

Kay: Now can I count on your help?

Jack: Much as I would like to say yes, I'm not really sure I can.

Ronan: Oh, fantastic. Is this from forensics?

Paul: Just finished processing. No fingerprints except Diane's, and the handwriting's a match. That's definitely her diary.

Ronan: Okay. All right. Good, I've been waitin' on this.

Paul: Well, you're in luck, because the boys downstairs made you a photocopy.

Ronan: (Chuckles) Fantastic. Thank you.

Paul: Now listen, I'm also gonna follow up with Mark and find out if the store manager remembers anything bout the person who donated these.

Ronan: All right, do it.

Ronan: I heard about the Sharon Newman case. One day in trial, and you're already gonna plead her out?

Heather: I'll take my headlines over yours any day.

Ronan: (Sighs) Okay, first off, that's crap.

Heather: It's been almost two months, and you've yet to make an arrest. The Mayor gave Spencer an earful this morning.

Ronan: See, what I'm doing here is I'm building an airtight case, a case that not even you could screw up.

Heather: (Scoffs) Clock's ticking, Detective.

Ronan: There's five pages missing. Five pages right before Diane was murdered.

Ronan: (Scoffs) (Chuckles)

Adam: Idiots.

(Cell phone rings)

Adam: (Sighs) Detective Malloy, it's always a pleasure.

Ronan: I need you to come by my office today. I've got some questions for you.

Adam: Sorry, I, uh, I'm really not up for a visit.

Ronan: If you need an escort, I can send you a black-and-white.

Adam: Fine. I'll be there.

(Cell phone rings)


Victor: Victor Newman.

Ronan: It's Detective Malloy here. I'd appreciate it if you could come down today and clear some inconsistencies I'm finding in your statement. What time can I expect you?

Victor: Uh, direct all questions to my attorney Michael Baldwin, all right?

(Cell phone rings)


Victor: Listen, harassing me is not going to help your cause.

Ronan: I had an interesting run-in with your daughter Abby yesterday

Victor: All right, now you've got my attention.

Ronan: I'll be expecting you.

Ronan: "If something happens to me, you know where to look. Either Adam or Victor is responsible."

Ashley: The arbitration is today, and you're just now telling me about the deal you made with Jack? Why--what is going on? Why can't you be straight with me?

Tucker: It's the same old thing. It's habit. (Sighs) In business and in life, I've always played it close to the vest, you know? I've never been in a relationship like this before. I've never, never made a lifetime commitment to anyone. I've always lived for today. It's always about me, and I'm set in my ways. Now for a man my age who's never been married to say this is new territory... well, that's a pretty big understatement. But, Beauty, I want this to work. I want to step up like I never have before. I want to be the kind of partner I've never been.

Ashley: What-- what does that mean?

Tucker: Remember when I wanted Jabot just so I could give it to you as a gift?

Ashley: Mm-hmm.

Tucker: Well, what I really want to do is be a good husband. That's business. I don't want business coming between us anymore.

Ashley: So you're saying that you gave up Jabot for me? For us?

Tucker: I know how important the company is to you.

Ashley: Well, I mean, I guess if... somebody's running the company that's an Abbott, I guess... I guess that's okay.

Tucker: Well, I want you to be better than "Okay." I don't want Jabot to get in the way of our happiness, so I realized it was probably better just to let the damn thing go. I know it looks like I'll never change. I know.

Ashley: Kinda.

Tucker: Yeah. That I'm not capable of it, but I want to... for you, and I'm gonna try like hell.

Kay: What do you mean, you're not sure you can help me?

Jack: Well, I would be coming between mother and son. I think maybe its best that I decline.

Kay: Jack, if Tucker wins, you're out of a job. You know that.

Jack: I guess I'll have to take my chances.

Kay: I-I really don't understand.

Jack: I'm sorry to disappoint you, Katherine, but I don't think it's going to be possible.

Kay: Listen to me, Darling. Your family and I-- you--we've been friends for decades with your father.

Jack: Believe me, I have thought of all of that, Katherine.

Kay: Well, then think about it again. This is very important. And know this-- you've been more of a son to me than that deceitful Tucker will ever be. I need you there, Jack, by my side. Please?

Jack: (Sighs)

Adam: Hey. Read about your plea offer to Sharon. Foldin' the thing kind of early, huh?

Heather: Spencer's idea, not mine. (Sighs)

Adam: So how are things going with this, uh, homicide of the century?

Heather: If you're referring to the Diane Jenkins case...

Adam: Yeah, Ronan called me in again. Any idea why?

Heather: You know, I can't discuss that with you.

Adam: I didn't kill Diane. I might be a bad guy, but I'm no murderer. They're just-- I'm wrongfully accused-- rinse, wash, repeat.

Heather: (Sighs) "The world is such an unfair place. Why won't anyone believe how much I've changed?"

Adam: Yeah, the least that they could do is just talk to other suspects. That's all I'm saying. I mean, there's gotta be a dozen, right?

Heather: Nice try, but I didn't stop by to say hi so you could pry me for information.

Adam: You're right, that was lousy of me.

Victor: I'm here for one reason only-- to find out what you think you have on my daughter Abby.

Ronan: Abby? Abby's in the clear-- well, for the moment, at least.

Victor: Well, then you brought me under false pretenses.

Ronan: Have a look at these. They're yours. So I know you lied to me about being in the park. Would you care to have a seat?

Victor: Only to set you straight and have it done with. So... what have you got to tell me?

Adam: I didn't mean to come off like I was-- I was using you for info. As you're well aware, I can be... quite an ass.

Heather: We're not friends, Adam.

Adam: I know. I don't have any. You hate me. I get it. Hell, I would, too. But I just... look, there weren’t all bad times. There were good times. Remember when my dad went to Mexico? We had the run of the ranch. We had champagne in the hot tub, and--and we made love in just about every room in the house. That's the... that's the stuff I focus on, the good stuff. That's what I think about. You ever think about those times?

Heather: Don't you think you should be getting to the station?

Adam: Heather... for whatever its worth, and I know it's not worth much, I'm sorry... about everything.

Abby: Tucker is a big, nasty bully who gets off on being mean to people.

Devon: You know, after he fired me, he, uh, came and warned me not to work for Katherine, saying that-- that she was just using me to get back at him.

Abby: (Scoffs)

Devon: But what was he doin' by comin' to me and talking about her like that?

Abby: Yeah, using you.

Devon: Thank you. And now here I am, caught in between these two rich, powerful people that I barely know. How crazy is that?

Neil: Did Tucker look out for you when you tried to help Cane protect our family? No. What did he do? He fired you. He threatened to press charges. He refused to even listen to your explanation.

Sofia: And you convinced him to give me my job back after we slept together. So are you somehow saying that I owe you?

Neil: This is not personal. This is business. This isn't about you and me.

Sofia: Oh, it-- it isn't about you and me? (Scoffs) You know what? This meeting was a mistake. I have to go see Malcolm. (Scoffs)

Neil: (Sighs) Hey, hey, wait a minute. (Sighs) Things would be easier all around if this baby wasn't mine. You know that.

Sofia: It definitely would be a lot easier, Neil.

Ronan: You see, the treads on these fine Italian shoes match the footprints left around the victim's body. We tracked these down at a Goodwill just outside of Racine.

Victor: Where's your chain of evidence linking me to that Goodwill store?

Ronan: Ahh, right here. See? It's the receipt-- the receipt for the donation identified by the store found in your closet when we conducted the search. You see, these are your shoes. And they were on your feet making prints around the corpse the night of the murder.

Victor: You and I know damn well that anyone could have taken these shoes and worn them the night of the murder. I told you from the very start that my son Adam was trying to set me up, trying to implicate me.

(Door opens)

Paul: Yeah, I need to see you for a sec.

Ronan: Sit tight. I have some more questions for you.

Victor: They'd better be good questions, Detective. So far, you're not impressing me.

Victor: What are you doing here?

Neil: Thanks.

Kay: So, uh, Sofia wouldn't budge, huh?

Neil: No, unfortunately, our little "Issue" got in the way of reaching an agreement, which I deeply apologize for.

Kay: (Scoffs) No need. Uh, you know, Tucker is determined to get the best of me in this, and nothing you could have said would have made any difference. It wouldn't have changed a thing.

Neil: Wait, wait, hold on. Wait, what about Jack? At least we can count on him, right?

Kay: I don't know. For some reason, he just wasn't eager to-- to testify. He didn't want to.

Neil: What? Where the hell is that man's loyalty? You put him in charge again.

Kay: Well, I think giving him time to think things through, uh... (Clicks tongue) I believe he will be at that hearing on my behalf.

Neil: Are you sure?

Kay: Well, I know Jack Abbott. Jabot means everything to him. No. He won't let me down.

Ashley: (Singsongy) I know what you're up to, Jackie, and I want in.

Jack: Then Tucker told you? All of it?

Ashley: (Normal voice) Yes, he told me all of it. And in spite of the secrecy, I am so happy that Jabot's gonna be back in Abbott hands. And you know what? I've got so many products I want to create. I've got a list, and nothing's gonna stop me.

Jack: (Stammers) Hold on. Katherine could still win at this arbitration. If she does, no Abbott who's in league with Tucker is ever going to work in that company again.

Ashley: Now that I know what your strategy is, Jack, I'm gonna put my money on the two of you. And once you get Jabot back, I want to be involved, okay? In a big way.

Jack: You will. You--you will... if we win. Let's not jinx this, okay?

Ashley: Since when are you superstitious in any way, shape, or form?

Jack: Ash, for too long, we have watched the company our father founded kicked around like a soccer ball. I am praying that today is the day that stops... for good.

Ronan: How's the sound level in my office?

Paul: It's perfect.

Adam: Well, some cop told me to wait in here.

Victor: You mean you don't wonder why we're here together? Because the cops are finally taking some action against you for trying to frame me for Diane's murder. Everyone knows you killed her. This time, I'm gonna make sure you pay for it.

Sofia: (Sighs) You brought me a present.

Malcolm: Yeah, it's, uh, it's one of those pregnancy pillows. You know, you mentioned you've been having trouble sleeping, so...

Sofia: Oh, Malcolm, that was so thoughtful of you. Thank you.

Malcolm: So... (Sighs) How's the little guy doin'?

Sofia: Well, why don't you see for yourself? Everything's progressing as it should be. The Rh levels are in safe territory.

Malcolm: Well... I guess it won't be long now, will it?

Sofia: (Sighs) You know, I wish you were this pillow. I wish we were living together again, sleeping in the same bed.

Malcolm: (Sighs)

Sofia: Malcolm, is there any way that we can maybe make that happen?

Neil: I hope that your trust in Jack isn't misplaced.

Kay: So do I. Come on. You want to talk about it?

Neil: (Clears throat) Talk--talk about what?

Kay: Well, your meeting with Sofia sounded rather difficult.

Neil: The situation, um...

Kay: Hmm.

Neil: Not knowing who the baby's father is-- Kay, it's like, uh, Malcolm and Dru all over again. You know, the secret they kept tore apart my family.

[Kay remembering]

Kay: Neil's adopted son?

Paul: And he's also Tucker's biological son, which means he's your grandson.

Kay: (Sighs) Well, this is... it's been very stressful for you, I know.

Neil: Yeah. And once Sofia has this baby, I am praying that it turns out to be Malcolm's, you know? That their marriage can survive this, may--maybe even grow stronger because of it. You think that's possible?

Kay: Well, it all depends on the couple.

Neil: I-I-I really-- I want those two to make it, you know? (Stammers) I mean, if I'm being honest, though, there's a part of me that, um, I don't know I-if on some deeper, unconscious level, when I slept with Sofia, was there more to it than just poor impulse control? Thank you.

Kay: What do you mean?

Neil: Did I do it on purpose to get back at my brother? Have I been holding on to that anger all these years?

Kay: Well, those are very, very heavy questions.

Neil: And I bet that you're gonna give me some sage advice.

Kay: (Chuckles) Not this time, I'm afraid, not this time.

Neil: Oh, okay. So I'm gonna have to just struggle through it myself?

Kay: There's a part of you that still wishes Sofia's baby turns out to be yours, right?

Neil: I never could lie to you, could I?

Kay: (Chuckles)

Devon: (Laughs)

Abby: No, I can't. It's so ridiculous. (Laughs)

Devon: You said it, though.

Abby: (Laughing) I know! (Sighs) You know, this is a private conversation

Tucker: Okay, well, Abby, I just wanted to tell you you should give your mother a call.

Abby: Mm.

Tucker: She was pretty shaken up by that message you left her.

Abby: Okay, thank you. Good-bye. (Clears throat)

Tucker: And, uh, did you take my advice about staying away from Katherine?

Abby: (Sighs)

Devon: You know what? No, I didn't.

Tucker: (Chuckles)

Devon: And why would I? She's given me a great opportunity.

Abby: Yeah, not to mention a contract saying she won't pull the rug right out from under him just because she's having a bad hair day. And actually, while we're on the subject of being a complete jerk to Katherine--

Tucker: Oh, okay, you heard about the lawsuit.

Abby: Yeah. Yeah, yeah, I did. You realize that that woman sat by your bedside for 20 hours a day when you were in that coma? She dealt with all the doctors. She was running two huge companies. She barely saw her husband. She was just sitting there willing you to get better,-and this is how you repay her? (Scoffs) Please remind me to never do anything nice for you.

Tucker: I'm reclaiming Jabot for your mother, Abby.

Abby: (Laughs)

Tucker: That's right, so she can be back where she belongs running the company alongside your Uncle Jack.

Abby: Oh, you are so full of it! You don't do anything for anyone unless their name is "Tucker."

Tucker: People can't change, Abby?

Abby: (Scoffs) Uh, you know, I-I've been thinking about that a lot lately, and I thought that they could, and then I take one look at you, and I'm not so sure.

Tucker: All right. You have a good day.

Sofia: I, um, met with Neil earlier. I-it was strictly business. But we did get to talking about the baby, and...

Malcolm: (Sighs)

Sofia: We both decided it would be best for everyone if this little boy turned out to be yours. And that is what I want more than anything, Malcolm. I realize it'll be a while before we know the paternity. But can we give things another try in the meantime?

Malcolm: Sofia, I-I-I'm not really ready for anything like that, okay? Not until we know for sure. And even if that baby is mine, we got a long road back to what we used to have.

Sofia: In my mind, in my heart, you already are my baby's father.

Malcolm: That's not up to you, Sofia, is it?

Neil: So...

Kay: Uh-huh.

Neil: Should we head to the courthouse?

Kay: No, you go ahead, and, um, I'm going to make a phone call. See you there.

Neil: All right, see you shortly. Mwah.

Kay: Mm, thank you, Neil.

Neil: Thank you, Katherine.

Kay: (Sighs)

Jack: This is Jack Abbott. You've reached my voice mail. Please leave a message after the tone. (Beep)

Kay's voice: Jack, it's me. You know, when we spoke earlier, you seemed very reluctant to get involved in this legal proceeding and, well, 'm about to leave, and I'm asking you one more time to please come and testify. Help me stop tucker from taking Jabot back. This is about protecting our legacy, our future. I need you, Jack. I need you. And I, um, I truly hope to see you there.

Adam: I didn't set you up. You set yourself up.

Victor: Now what the hell does that mean?

Adam: You were runnin' around town screamin' out to anybody who would listen to you that you hated Diane the same night that she ended up facedown in a stream.

Victor: You had as many reasons to hate her as I did, perhaps even more. You lived with her until before she died. You know she was rather mercurial, to put it mildly.

Adam: Isn't that why you did her in?

Victor: You've been trying to set me up for her death from the beginning. She told me so the night she died.

Heather: What's going on? What are you guys doing?

Ronan: Shh, shh, shh, shh!

Adam: You told the police that she came to your ranch to talk to you-- your ranch-- about this supposed plan to frame you.

Victor: What about it?

Adam: It's a lie. I was with Diane that night at the park, and she hadn't yet spoken to you. So if she did speak to you, it had to have happened at that footbridge after I left her, so you must have been the last person to see her alive.

Ronan: I've got you both.

Neil: (Clears throat)

Ashley: Hi.

Tucker: Hey.

Tucker: So, um, how'd your talk with Jack go? Will he give you the job you want when he time is right?

Ashley: You know, he didn't-- he didn't promise me anything specific. He said he didn't want to jinx it. Isn't that weird? Jack's not that kind of person. I don't even think he knows what his astrological sign is, so I don't know.

Tucker: (Sighs)

Ashley: Psst.

Kay: Oh, uh, by the way, Dear, the judge isn't here yet. Uh, you still have time to back out.

Tucker: Not on your life. There you go, Jack. Good to see you. Glad to have you with us.

Heather: Will one of you please tell me what's going on here?

Paul: Shh! (Quietly) Ronan put Adam and Victor in the same room to see what would happen. So far, so good.

Victor: Where the hell is Malloy? (Sighs)

Adam: Dad?

Victor: What?

Adam: You ever wish things were different between us?

Victor: Uh, Connie, kindly tell Victoria that I've been delayed. I'll be with her momentarily, all right? Thank you.

Ronan: Okay, that's all we're gonna get.

Heather: I'd like an explanation. What--what is it that you think you got?

Ronan: I got a start. I got Victor and Adam finally telling the truth.

Heather: Whatever you caught on tape could be tossed out as inadmissible. At least one of the parties has to know that he was recorded and consent.

Ronan: Mm-hmm. Well, you know what? I'm okay with it, because now I know what I need to know.

Victor: I'm out of here.

Ronan: And thank you for coming in.

Adam: Heather, what are you doing here?

Heather: I-I just needed to talk to Paul.

Ronan: You can go, Adam.

Adam: What angle do you have, Ronan? What kind of game are you playing? No questions?

Ronan: Nope. No game, no angle. Thanks for your time.

Ronan: What's goin' on with you and "Prince Charming" there?

Heather: Who, Adam? Nothing. (Scoffs)

Paul: Better be nothing.

Ronan: I'll let you two talk this out.

Heather: {Sighs] That's some thought process you got there.

Ronan: Yep. "At the... footbridge." Times two.

Heather: That's what you just got?

Ronan: Yep. See, this isn't the kind of case that's going to solve itself. It's--it's-- it's a giant puzzle, you know, one that you can only understand when you step back and you-- you take the whole thing in. It's coming together. It's coming together. I can feel it.

Next on "The Young and the Restless...

Nick: You win. I'm here. I got your money. Come and get it.

Ashley: Diane kept a diary? Do you know about this?

Victoria: And Ronan has it.

Ronan: "When my dead body is found someday, it'll be because Adam finally snapped."
