Proofread By Emma
Mauro: We're makin' progress. Diane's diary and Victor Newman's shoes are good "Gets."
Ronan: Thank you. (Sighs) I still don't have enough to say, you know, "There he is. There's my guy." And these pillows-- these pillows are driving me nuts.
Mauro: Well, you still think Diane left them as some kind of clue?
Ronan: I mean, I don't--I don't know. If she did... (Stammers) It's vague. I can't figure out if they're relevant.
Mauro: Well, what's your next move?
Ronan: The next move I go is to do what I do-- rattle some cages and see what I get.
Man: You gotta see this. (Sighs)
Ronan: This is one of the missing pages of Diane's diary. Where did you get this?
Man: That stack of papers at the front desk.
Mauro: I-it just suddenly appeared?
Ronan: When did this come in?
Ronan: (Scoffs) (Chuckles) Get this down to the lab and get a photocopy immediately. Mauro, ride the lab on that.
Mauro: And you?
Ronan: I am going to let someone know about our latest discovery. (Sighs)
Nick: Come on, Ashley.
(Cell phone rings)
Ashley: Hi, Nick.
Nick: Hey, where are you?
Ashley: At court-- Katherine and Tucker's arbitration. Why?
Nick: Can you come to my place right now?
Ashley: What's going on? I'm on my way.
Nick: (Tosses telephone) Damn it.
Abby: Hey. Dad, your assistant said that you might be here.
Victor: You all right?
Abby: Yes. I made a decision about college. I'm definitely going.
Victoria: What? Wha--that's fantastic, Abby.
Abby: (Chuckles) Are you happy?
Victor: That makes me very happy.
(Cell phone alerts chime)
Abby: Wait, that's weird. "The Naked Heiress goes Studious" couldn't have hit the blogs that fast.
Victoria: (Sighs) Um, oh, you are actually a headline. And, uh, so is Dad.
Abby: We're not killers. At least you and I aren't. Who put this out there?
Victor: I have a feeling I know.
Ronan: Just who I was hoping to see.
Phyllis: Oh, what's up, Detective?
Ronan: I am... (Sighs) I'm changing my tactics. I'm gonna pare down my suspect list.
Phyllis: Am I still included in that list?
Ronan: I don't think you're a killer, except in a short skirt.
Phyllis: I told you not to look at my legs, but thank you. What do you need from me?
Ronan: (Chuckles) I need, uh, I need your opinion.
Phyllis: About who killed Diane?
Ronan: Mm-hmm. Absolutely. You know every one of these suspects.
Phyllis: Who do you think did it?
Ronan: Well, right now, I'm leaning towards Nick and Ashley.
Phyllis: You think... Nick and Ashley pounded Diane's head in together?
Ronan: Nick and Ashley were in the park that night.
Phyllis: Well, there are a lot of people strolling in that area, because it is, in fact, a park.
Ronan: It is, in fact, isn't it? But a lot of people weren't making secret phone calls.
Phyllis: To whom?
Ronan: Nick called Ashley from his cell. He won't tell me what they talked about. They won't tell me why they needed to talk. I know they're hiding something. What's your take on this?
Phyllis: I don't have a take. If Nick called Ashley, I'm sure it's perfectly innocent I-I have an appointment. I-I have to go.
Ronan: Okay, yeah.
Nick: "I'll tell the cops about the call to Ashley if you don't hand over 50 grand." I'm supposed to deliver it to that warehouse later today.
Ashley: Why is he doing this to us?
Ashley: Yeah, we've been over this before. The only person that would ever want to torture us like this is Adam.
Ronan: Good morning. (Sighs)
Adam: More mind games, Detective?
Ronan: No, no mind games. I came to you. That's called consideration.
Adam: Or a crush.
Ronan: (Chuckles) Ooh, um, so we found Diane Jenkins' diary. A lot of intriguing entries in it.
Adam: I'll bet.
Ronan: See, none of them, though, made a bigger impression on me than this one right here, dated July 28th.
Adam: That date is supposed to mean something to me?
Ronan: It should mean something to you. It was just a couple of days before she was beaten to death.
Adam: And she wrote about me in her diary?
Ronan: She did, yeah. It says right there that she knew you were going to kill her.
Victoria: Doesn't sound like Ronan.
Abby: It's kind of sleazy.
Victoria: Do you really think he gave this to the papers?
Victor: I think his investigation has stalled. Neither the mayor nor the district attorney can be too pleased about that.
Victoria: So he's resorting to sensationalism?
Victor: It's a good way to convince the public he's getting somewhere.
Abby: Well, it's working. I'm kind of wiggin' out.
Victor: Don't you let Malloy intimidate you.
Ronan: "Victor and a lot of other people in this town might hate me, but there's no one I need to fear as much as Adam.
Adam: Ronan... (Sighs) What does that prove?
Ronan: "After he was indicted by the grand jury today, he was furious with me. He said I sold him out."
Adam: (Sighs) I was angry with her for lying about it.
Ronan: Okay. "He threatened me so many times. I'm terrified he's gonna follow through. I thought I could handle him, but he's a psychopath."
Adam: I never touched her, unlike my father, who threw her out the back of a truck.
Ronan: Wait, wait, wait. Right here-- "When my dead body is found someday, it'll be because Adam finally snapped. I know it."
Adam: You're trying to frame me.
Ronan: See, I don't need to frame someone who's guilty. Now... I can get out the cuffs and, well, you now. Or... you can walk out of here with a smile, and we'll keep talkin' about this at the station.
Nick: I knew Adam would never be satisfied with taunting me with that voice mail I left on your phone.
Ashley: He's escalating things with me, too.
Nick: How so?
Ashley: I got another photo. This time, it's me pushing Diane that night in the park.
Nick: When you had your confrontation and lost your phone.
Nick: What did you do with the pictures?
Ashley: I ripped 'em up and threw 'em out.
Nick: Well, you know he's got copies, right?
Ashley: Well, I know, but I just can't stand to have it around me, you know? I just can't take it-- all this dread.
Nick: Yeah, I know-- sitting around waiting for another threatening call or a message or picture.
Ashley: Maybe Adam's trying to force your hand and to see what you'll do.
Nick: I can't have the police hear that recording. I mean, I was just venting with Diane, but if they hear me yelling that I'm gonna kill her--
Ashley: I know. They could take it literally. I know.
Nick: And I'm not caving in to this blackmail.
Ashley: You can't. It'll never end.
Nick: Adam's just on some power trip, and I'm gonna stop him.
Phyllis: Oh, wow, what a shock. What a shock finding you two her together.
Phyllis: I'm sure Detective Malloy would love to hear what you two were just talking about, but, honestly, not as much as I would.
Ashley: Malloy was questioning you about us?
Phyllis: He said that you called Ashley from your cell phone in the park the night that Diane was murdered.
Phyllis: What's happening? He thinks you're lying. He's also coming up with a bunch of conspiracy theories-- that you two were conspiring to put Diane 6 feet under.
Nick: He said that?
Phyllis: Yes. Or that you're havin' an affair.
Ashley: Okay, that's just ridiculous.
Phyllis: Oh, yeah, I'm sure it's ridiculous. But, you see, it didn't stop him from putting me under the microscope. So I'm in this now. I'm a part of this. What is going on? Please tell me.
(Cell phone rings)
Ashley: Yeah, Abby? What's goin' on? Honey, slow down. I can't understand you. Okay, I'll be right there. I have to go. My daughter needs me.
Nick: That's all right. I can handle this.
Phyllis: Oh, yeah, yeah. I'm sure you can.
Nick: Phyllis is in on this now. She should know the story. We can trust her.
Ashley: We don't have a choice.
Ronan: If you wan to make this easier, just confess now.
Adam: I've got nothing to confess.
Ronan: Mr. Newman, I'm in the middle of some business with your son.
Adam: What's this?
Victor: Our ambitious detective trying to manufacture a case.
Ronan: Well, this just looks like somebody-- I mean, either from this department or maybe the district attorney--
Victor: The source of the leak is standing right in front of me.
Adam: I agree with him there. This guy here is trying to railroad me.
Victor: I don't care what he's trying to do to you. But you better stop implying that Abby and I are murderers. You have nothing to go on.
Ronan: I don't agree.
Victor: Whatever evidence you have is flimsy at best, circumstantial. I told you I was not there the night that Diane Jenkins was killed!
Adam: And I told him the same thing. The truth doesn't go far in this place.
Ronan: (Chuckles) Weren't there? Weren't there? One second.
Victor: You've been trying to set me up for her death from the beginning. She told me so the night she died.
Adam: Yeah, you know, I've been meaning to talk to you about that. 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: What about it? 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: (Whistles) Wow. That's good stuff. Do you guys have anything you want to add to that?
Victor: You arrogant S.O.B. You know what you just did with that? Something very illegal. Neither he nor I consented to being eavesdropped on, did we? You have a lawsuit on your hands-- a big one, boy.
Ronan: (Stammers) No, not you. Not you, not so fast.
Adam: No. No, that diary-- it means nothing, and you know it. It's just hearsay.
Ronan: That diary is enough for me to hold you while I continue my investigation, that's what that diary is.
Phyllis: You should have told me this, Nick.
Nick: Then Ronan would have been after you, too.
Phyllis: All right, let me get this straight-- so you accidentally called Ashley from your phone when you were in the park with Diane arguing?
Nick: Yeah, and unintentionally left a voice mail.
Phyllis: Right, okay, and then she-- she lost her phone in the park when she was going at it with Diane.
Phyllis: And somebody has been threatening you for weeks with proof of your incriminating behavior?
Nick: Yeah, it's Adam.
Phyllis: And you're sure it's Adam? Why?
Nick: His D.N.A. links him to the first picture. This is why Ashley was here today.
Phyllis: That's really creepy. $50,000? What does he want with $50,000?
Nick: He's just messin' with us.
Phyllis: He never tires of that, does he?
Nick: Well, now you know everything.
Phyllis: Thank you. We're gonna get that S.O.B. -- you and me.
Man: All right, let's get you into a holding cell.
Heather: Adam, what are you doing here?
Adam: Ronan is, uh. He's tossing me in jail.
Heather: Uh, on what grounds?
Adam: No grounds. Just ignorant speculation.
Phyllis: You get the money, and we'll both go to see Adam together.
Nick: I am not dragging you into this.
Phyllis: Listen, okay? Listen. Listen I'm either with you, or I'm 30 seconds behind you. You pick.
Nick: I didn't tell you all of this--
Phyllis: Of course you didn't. I know. Listen, if my plan works, no more threatening phone calls, no more cryptic messages. It's over.
Phyllis: Nick, or you can continue to suffer.
Nick: All right, what do you got?
Phyllis: We go together wherever Adam is, all right? I'll hang back, but you go to him. You lure him out, 'cause, uh, he'll be hiding.
Nick: Then what?
Phyllis: I'll document everything with a camera on my phone. What do you think?
Nick: All right, that may work. I'll call the bank, start gettin' the money together.
Heather: I've just seen Adam. I'm concerned.
Ronan: Concerned about how I detained him, or are you concerned for Adam?
Heather: As a member of the district attorney's office, I don't think you have enough to hold him.
Ronan: Well, I don't think you know what I've got. I think you know what Adam's told you.
Heather: Do you have something that will definitely lead to his arrest?
Ronan: What's goin' on with you? Huh? Earlier you come in here tellin' me this story how the mayor and your boss are pissed off that I haven't made a major move in this case. Now when I make a major move against your ex-fiancé, I hear this--
Heather: Oh, excuse me. Listen, I am on your side, but unless you have hard evidence--
Ronan: Heather, the man could be a killer!
Heather: And what if he's not?
Ronan: Then he knows something about it!
Heather: You can't rush into this arrest, Ronan. It'll come back to bite us.
Nick: The money's ready.
Phyllis: Good. All right, let's go.
Nick: Actually, there's something I want to do first.
Phyllis: What do you want to do? Have passionate sex with me so you exhaust me and I forget what I'm doing?
Nick: That's a hell of an idea, but no. I should have thought of that.
Phyllis: (Chuckles) Let's go.
Nick: I'm glad that you know everything now. I really hated keeping this from you. You understand me?
Phyllis: Yeah I would have done the same thing in your position. But now I'm with you all the way.
Ronan: You can go.
Adam: You saw the light?
Ronan: Don't push me.
Adam: Or what? You'll arrest me?
Heather: Adam, don't you have someplace to be?
Adam: Anywhere but here.
Abby: Hey, Mom, I was really afraid you weren't gonna talk to me after the fight we had.
Ashley: Oh, Honey, I got your message.
Abby: I'm really sorry.
Ashley: I know you are. Come here.
Ashley: Honey, what is this about now? What's happening?
Abby: You have to see this.
Ashley: What's going on?
Victoria: Oh, hi, Ashley. You're here. Did Abby show you the article?
Abby: Wait, Mom. Listen, okay? "Could Abby Newman..."
Abby: Her ultra-famous dad, or infamous bro be a killer? Cops have hauled them in more than once in connection to the horrific slaying of Abby's ex-stepmommy Diane Jenkins. 'The Naked Heiress'..."
Ashley: Oh, my God.
Abby: "May be wearing blood on her hands this season."
Ashley: Baby, this is awful. This is awful. Did Malloy hand them this story?
Victoria: I don't know.
Victor: Ashley, I'm glad you're here.
Victoria: Hey, Dad, did you get Ronan to back off?
Victor: (Sighs) Well, I threatened him with legal ramifications
Abby: Well, can't we sue him for libel now?
Victor: Only if we can prove that what he published was untrue.
Victoria: Okay, well, that's easy. We've got him, because it says right here that you and Abby and Adam were questioned in the last hours, and that's not true, right?
Victor: I was called down to his office for some stupid reason.
Victoria: Great. Why didn't you say anything to me?
Ashley: What aren't you telling us?
Abby: Okay, yeah, fine. I talked to Ronan, okay?
Victoria: Talked to him about what?
Abby: (Stammers) I freaked out, okay? I freaked that he was gonna find my confession that I was the one who hit Tucker and sent him to the hospital.
Ashley: What, you know about--you know about this?
Victor: I told her a little while ago.
Victoria: Listen, its fine. I'm on "Team protect Abby," all right? Go ahead. What were you saying?
Abby: Okay, there was this key that they found on Diane, and it opened a lockbox at the club, and I was afraid that my confession might be inside. That is why I went with Ronan when he opened it.
Ashley: You went with him?
Abby: My confession was not in there.
Victoria: Well, what was in there?
Abby: Diane's diary.
Ashley: Okay, what-- Diane kept a diary? Do you know about this?
Victoria: And Ronan has it.
Victor: God only knows what he'll find in that diary.
Nick: You win. I'm here. I got your money. Come and get it. But I'm not leaving here until I see your face! So show yourself. (Footsteps approach) (Boxes topple)
Ronan: I see you got my note. You have a lot of explaining to do.
Nick: This is entrapment.
Ronan: Oh, come on now. I'm just speeding this whole process up. See, this way, I don't have to hear you and Ashley lie to me again about that phone call.
Nick: By pretending to be a blackmailer.
Ronan: How about that, huh? You were willing to pay $50,000 to someone to keep quiet what you said on the phone that night. (Chuckles) So come on. I mean, tell me about it, Nick. Hey, what's got you so damn desperate, Man?
Nick: I think until my lawyer gets here, I will be exercising my right to remain silent.
Ronan: (Chuckles) Yeah. Do you want to tell me what's going on? Or do you want to end up in lockup with Nick here?
Phyllis: I think you're posturing.
Ronan: Posturing? Okay, did I tell you guys I found Diane Jenkins' diary? Hmm? Hmm? No? 'Cause it's been a real eye-opener for this case. It raised a lot of great questions, too. For instance, did Nick here kill Diane 'cause their affair went south? Or did Phyllis do it because she was jealous of that affair?
Phyllis: Oh, wait a second. You said she isn't a suspect anymore.
Ronan: Or did Nick and Ashley do it because Nick was sleeping with her, so they conspired together to commit the murder?
Nick: All right. (Sighs) We're done.
Ronan: No, we're not. I say when we're done. Why don't you guys get comfortable? 'Cause I'm gonna have some more questions for you.
Adam: It's on me. Thanks for gettin' me sprung.
Heather: (Sighs) I didn't do it for personal reasons it was a professional matter.
Adam: (Sighs) Well, then accept my businesslike gratitude.
Heather: Just don't expect me to step up for you again if you find yourself in trouble.
Adam: It's not gonna be necessary. I didn't kill Diane.
Heather: Ronan has evidence.
Adam: Yeah, I know. I heard. This diary of Diane's, this supposed page, it's--it's gotta be a forgery.
Heather: Well, wouldn't that be poetic justice for someone go after you with a bogus diary entry?
Adam: I need to see you right now.
Mauro: I was staring at these things earlier.
Ronan: Can you make any sense of 'em?
Mauro: (Scoffs) Not even close. (Sighs) It was a nice sting-- the warehouse. Phyllis and Nick didn't even see that coming. (Chuckles) So what's next?
Ronan: More Newmans.
Abby: Well, I was so relived that Ronan didn't score the tape of the confession, I thought it was no biggie that he just found a diary.
(Cell phone rings)
Abby: It's Malloy.
Victor: You don't have to answer that.
Abby: (Sighs) (Ring)
Abby: No, but ignoring him now means dealing with him later, and at least-- at least right now, I'm not alone. (Sighs) Hello?
Ronan: Abby, glad I caught you.
Abby: You'd better be careful what you say. I've got witnesses.
Abby: Um, my dad, Mom, and sister.
Ronan: That's great-- saves me some phone calls. Why don't you put me on speaker?
Abby: (Whispering) He wants to talk to all of us.
Victor: You obviously don't know how to listen, do you?
Ronan: (Chuckles) On the contrary, Victor, I heard you loud and clear. The newspaper's web site is ready to publish an apology for that malicious article. But first... first, I'm gonna need something in exchange... from Abby.
Ashley: Leave my daughter alone.
Ronan: Maybe I'll do that, if she tells me what did Diane have on you, Abby?
Victoria: (Scoffs) Nothing.
Ronan: Then why was she so nervous about that key and lockbox?
Victor: She doesn't have to answer that.
Ronan: That's very shortsighted of you, Victor. I'm surprised, 'cause, let's be honest, we all know what's best for Abby right now is for her to come clean of her own volition. You Newmans, huh? You love your secrets, don't you? I'm just curious-- have you shared them with each other? I mean, Ashley already confessed to arguing with Diane in the park on the night of the murder. And Victor-- has Victor shared his latest, everybody? The--his shoe prints were discovered at the scene of the crime and then positively ID'd. Oh, and not to mention I've got a recording confirming Victor was in the park that night.
Abby: (Normal voice) What?
Ronan: Oh, it gets better. It gets better. Victoria?
Ronan: Well, then that looks like it blows your cover story about hangin' out with dear, old daddy that night. I'm curious- have you told anybody where you were that night? Hmm. Well, you guys got awfully quiet. Guess I hit a nerve... or four. (Chuckles) Its funny, isn't it? Who would have thunk? You know you've been fibbing on each other to me. (Laughs) I don't know. I guess it happens in the best of families, huh? But I just want to throw it out there-- if any of you want to fess up before it's too late, any of you, well, eh, you know where to find me.
(Phone hangs up)
Victor: You all know he's just trying to rattle our cages. We all know that we who are in this room... that we're all innocent, right? (Sighs)
Mauro: Why didn't you tell them that we had Nick and Phyllis on ice?
Ronan: 'Cause I want to let the others stew amongst themselves for a while.
Mauro: You wanted to rattle some cages. Mission accomplished.
Ronan: Thank you. You know, these people... these people-- I mean, Diane Jenkins was bludgeoned to death. And instead of helping us catch her killer, these people walk around like they're untouchable, walkin' around here like they're the kings and queens of Genoa City, and I...
Ronan: Wait a minute. (Chuckles) Wait a minute. Could that be it?
Phyllis: You know, um, Malloy should lose his badge for this, the way he treats innocent people. Honestly. Where's Michael?
Nick: (Sighs) I'm not sure.
Mauro: Detective Malloy wanted me to give you an update.
Phyllis: Oh, great, thank you. He's letting us go.
Mauro: You're officially being held for questioning.
Adam: You're out of control. You're out of your mind tryin' to set me up. That page from the diary Ronan showed me? You wrote it. I know you did. (Singsong voice) Come out, come out, wherever you are.
(Metal hitting metal rhythmically)
Ashley: Look, all Malloy has is a bunch of circumstantial evidence that doesn't amount to anything.
Victor: Exactly. That's why I didn't tell you what I discussed with Malloy that night. It was totally inconsequential. It had nothing to do with what happened to Diane. I just didn't want to worry any of you, okay?
Abby: All right, I've gotta go. I'm fried.
Ashley: I'll walk you out. I'm gonna leave, too. Good-bye.
Victor: Nice to see you, Ashley.
Victor: You're a little more upset than you're letting on.
Victoria: Daddy, I've been keeping something from you, and I can't anymore, especially lot with Ronan acting this way.
Victor: All right, tell me.
Victoria: Well, I didn't say that I was with you the night that Diane died just because I was being protective.
Victor: Sweetheart, whatever it is, we'll deal with it.
Victoria: I was also in the park that night, and I saw you with Diane.
Abby: All right, I'm scared. Okay, Ronan is getting way more aggressive. Maybe I should just tell him everything.
Ashley: Okay, settle down. You're not gonna do that, all right? You're not.
Abby: No, well, what if there is something written about me in that diary, mom?
Ashley: He never mentioned the diary in that phone call, Abby, okay? Now I'm--I'm getting nervous, too, but I'm not gonna jump to conclusions, okay? And neither should you.
Abby: Okay. Okay, yeah, no, no, you're right. You're right the confession--it may never come out. I-I shouldn't say anything about it.
Ashley: That's right. Absolutely, and besides, Malloy only has questions. Clearly, he doesn't have any answers.
Abby: Oh, God, I hope it stays that way.
Ashley: It will, okay?
Ronan: Okay, what if each pillow is a message?
Mauro: About what?
Ronan: A-about the suspects. All right, watch this. Watch. "Why, yes, I am evil."
Ronan: No, no, no, no, no, no. Right there.
Mauro: (Snaps fingers) That's good. That's good.
Ronan: That's very good. "It's good to be king."
Mauro: What about Tucker McCall?
Ronan: Tucker McCall king? No, I've got the king. I've got the king right here. Victor.
Mauro: That is wild and weird.
Mauro: All right, but there are ten pillows, and we only have nine suspects.
Ronan: Nine suspects. Who are we missing?
Mauro: All these sayings are--can be about any of the suspects. How sure are you about this?
Ronan: I'm about to find out. "Girls just want to have funds." What do you want to bet this pillow is about Abby?
Mauro: No, no, no. What are you doing? What--wait. Are--are you crazy?
Ronan: I'm going with my gut.
Ronan: I guarantee you, this is what "the naked heiress" didn't want me to find.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"..
Avery: You need to bring Lucy to see her mother at the penitentiary today.
Kay: If Tucker wins, do you really think he will sell you Jabot?
Victor: You find the real killer instead of harassing my family!
