Neil: Wow. Have you ever seen anything more beautiful--?
Neil: Yeah, Baby Boy.
Sofia: Never in my life.
Neil: Oh, I better bite my tongue. Lily was pretty amazing, too. Lily, your sister, was amazing, too.
Sofia: (Chuckles) Well, I doubt that Lily would be offended that you find your son gorgeous.
Neil: My son. You are my son. And you know what, Buddy? There's gonna be some major adjustments coming up, I'm telling you.
Sofia: Have you, uh, heard from Malcolm?
Neil: Not a word. You? It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay.
Sofia: He just found out that he has a nephew and not a son.
Sofia: He'll, um, he needs time.
Neil: It's okay. Shh. Yeah. You know Malcolm-- always taking off. Gets old after a while, you know? That's his thing. It's okay. Yes, I know.
Sofia: You want Mama? Come here, Baby.
Neil: Yeah, there's your mommy.
Sofia: It's okay. It's okay.
Woman: It's time to sign Baby Winter's birth certificate. Which one of you gentlemen is the father?
Moses: (Fusses) (Cries)
Sofia: Its okay, Baby. It's okay. It's okay.
Victor: Phyllis. Good morning.
Phyllis: So what's your day like today? Hovering over Sharon? Bending the legal world to your will? Writing another check to Avery Clark?
Victor: Your sister's an excellent attorney.
Phyllis: Yeah. That's why you hired her, right? Because she's an excellent attorney-- not because she's my sister.
Victor: Do you think that she wrote something about her sibling on her résumé? Is that what you're asking?
Phyllis: Yeah. Oh, no. But I know that you do a 6-page background check on every employee you hire, so you had to have known.
Victor: Phyllis, I don't get this. Your sister has an excellent reputation as an attorney.
Phyllis: What--what-- I don't want her here. Why are you doing this to me?
Victor: I'm not doing anything to you. Now you do me a favor-- don't you use your rag to undermine Sharon's trial. You got that?
Phyllis: All I care about is a good story. That's the only thing I care about. Excuse me. I lost my appetite.
Adam: Oh. I was expecting someone to clean my room. You're welcome to, but you're not exactly dressed for it.
Avery: Yeah, I'm dressed for court to defend your ex-wife, the woman who went to Hawaii to clear your name and wound up being called a murderer herself.
Adam: Well, the wizard never gave me a heart, so you can give up trying to touch it.
Avery: I have sent investigators to Hawaii and Thailand--
Adam: Yeah? Really? Did he try the poke in Hawaii? It's amazing. It's seaweed, raw fish, soy sauce.
Avery: No one can find your contact Koa. The D.A. has a solid case. I need a stronger defense, evidence that can clear Sharon, evidence that you at one time had. Adam, if you can save Sharon, for God sake, now is the time to do it.
Nick: Thank you. I wanted to check in with you before court...
Nick: (Sighs) See how you're doing.
Sharon: (Sighs) I'm trying to psych myself up. (Sighs) Avery told me that things could get ugly, but I just keep telling myself, no matter what they throw at me, I can handle it, no matter what it is. Just anything to get me home to Noah and Faith. Will you bring her to the courthouse today? I-I just really need to see her.
Nick: I thought we agreed after last time that it's not a good idea.
Sharon: Nick, I am scared. I just turned down a plea deal, and now the reality is starting to set in that my acquittal is not a sure thing. I just need to see her little face. Please tell me that you will bring her to me.
Phyllis: Oh, hey.
Malcolm: (Sighs) Hi.
Phyllis: Rough morning?
Malcolm: (Sighs) Phyllis, that baby... oh, with his little fat cheeks and his dark eyes... I could photograph him for days and never get a bad shot. But he's not mine. He's not mine. It's like... it's like I've lost a brother, a wife, and a son, all at the same time.
Neil: There you go.
Neil: So now you understand just how sensitive the paternal situation is.
Woman: I feel terrible.
Sofia: You had no idea.
Woman: If you want, we can do this later.
Neil: Now is fine.
Sofia: Go ahead. Sign your name there... "Dad."
Sofia: "Moses' Mother." (Chuckles) That feels so good. Here you go.
Neil: Thanks a lot. Um, maybe I should go look for Malcolm.
Sofia: Okay. Go. W-we'll be fine. Just talk to him before things get any worse.
Nick: Sharon, of course I want you and Faith to be together again. But after the last time when she got to see you, and then she didn't get to see you, that is too hard for her to handle.
Sharon: But you know what? She's--she's a little bit older now. Maybe it wouldn't affect her the same way.
Nick: Sharon, when Faith sees you here or at the courthouse, all she knows is she can't run up to you and get in your lap and give you a hug. And then when she goes home, you don't go with her.
Sharon: Yeah, she couldn't sleep after the last visit.
Nick: I'm sorry, but Faith will not be in court today. But I'll be there, all right? And hopefully, Avery will make sure that you get to go home to your daughter real soon.
Adam: You really don't live up to the hype if you're coming to me for help.
Avery: Why are you so bent on vengeance? Because a-a woman who was scared and lonely took a little kindness? Took a little friendship? You know, you're not exactly a couple, Adam, when one of you is presumed dead.
Adam: Mm. A little--little kindness. Yeah, that's quite a euphemism.
Avery: Oh, God, the moment she got back, it was over with Sam. She was willing. She was eager to remarry you. Of course, she didn't know it was a trick. But your pride-- my God, is this what your pride is worth to you? Really? A murder conviction and--and decades in prison for somebody you claim you love? If something doesn't go Sharon's way, all we can do is hope for a mistrial.
Adam: Tough girl running scared.
Avery: Yeah, I tend to do that when I think that someone who's innocent is gonna spend the rest of their lives suffering for a crime they didn't commit. And you know what? If you were half human, you'd be scared, too.
Phyllis: Here you go.
Phyllis: Maybe you want something stronger.
Malcolm: (Chuckles) (Sighs) Phyllis, I mean, I-I-I knew this could happen. You know, I-I mean, the baby possibly wouldn't be mine, but... (Sighs) Maybe it's just-- maybe it's karma.
Malcolm: Maybe it's the universe setting the world to rights. You know, because of me and-- and--and Lily, and Dru, yeah.
Phyllis: A-and--and Dru. Yeah, no, rubbish. Rubbish. It's not karma. It's biology. It's circumstance. That's all.
Phyllis: You know, Neil raised Lily. Maybe you could raise Moses.
Malcolm: Phyllis, it's not the same. I mean... (Sighs) Neil didn't know about Lily. And what he and Dru had was unbreakable. But me and Sophia, we--
Phyllis: You... you told me you loved her.
Malcolm: Yeah, but that doesn't mean, um, I don't hate her a little bit for this.
Phyllis: Well, what about Neil? Hmm? Is it love and hate with him, too?
Neil: Hey, Malcolm, I've left you a few messages. I checked the club. I can't find you. Uh, we need to talk and set things straight, okay? So why don't you meet me at the hospital, all right? Thanks.
Neil: Hey. Victor, hi. (Sighs)
Victor: Hello, Neil.
Neil: H-have you seen Malcolm by any chance?
Victor: You seem to be worried about something.
Neil: Yeah, um, I do, huh?
Victor: Yeah. The papers are full of... the story about you resigning from Chancellor. Well, I guess your mind is on what "Restless Style" posted about Devon and Tucker. That's bothering you? Tucker should never have come to this town.
Neil: Yeah, well, Victor, listen, I appreciate your concern, but actually, my issues this morning have nothing to do with Devon. Um, I became a father again last night. Sofia's baby is mine.
Victor: You and Sofia.
Victor: Boy or girl?
Neil: Little boy.
Victor: Oh, yeah?
Neil: Yeah, named after Sofia's father. His name is Moses.
Victor: That's an auspicious name. Lucky to have you as a father.
Neil: Thanks. I am the boy's father, but Malcolm is married to my son's mother.
Victor: Well, you and your brother have been there before, haven't you?
Malcolm: Yeah, we sure have. I just don't know how we're gonna get through it this time, you know?
Neil: I-I tell you, Victor, I can't look at that little boy and think, mistake.
Victor: So where did you and Malcolm leave it?
Neil: I have no idea where his head is at. You know, that would require him to actually be in the same room with me and have a conversation. And every second I spend looking for him is a second I spend away from my son.
Victor: Time goes by very quickly. Enjoy it. Enjoy this time with your son. It'll never come back.
Malcolm: My brother? I don't have one.
Phyllis: Oh, come on. Stop it. I know you're mad. I understand that. Listen, I was on the baby D.N.A. merry-go-round for a long time. I have about a million pictures in my cell phone of a baby that I didn't create but I love so much.
Malcolm: Come on, Phyllis. It's not the same, and you know it.
Phyllis: Oh, right. Yeah, it-- how is it different, really?
Phyllis: Malcolm, I mean, I know you're mad. I get it. We've all been betrayed. I've been betrayed, too. I kicked. I screamed. I got upset, but at the end of the day, I realized that love is more important than holding a grudge.
Phyllis: You said you love Sofia. You said that to me. Love is the only thing that matters.
Malcolm: But if she chooses to be with my brother, that matters, too.
Phyllis: You don't know that. You don't know. You don't know what's gonna happen there. Neil has a say in this. Maybe he doesn't want it.
Malcolm: Phyllis, they-- they share a kid together now.
Phyllis: It doesn't-- who cares? A lot of--a lot of people share kids, and they're not together. The kid doesn't-- Moses doesn't care about D.N.A.
Phyllis: Moses cares about someone loving him.
Malcolm: (Sighs heavily) All right, I guess I better get back to the hospital.
Phyllis: Yes. (Chuckles)
Phyllis: You'd better. Are you kidding me? Now is not a good time.
Phyllis: Do you want me to go with you?
Malcolm: No, no, I-I-I'll--I'll check in with you later.
Malcolm: Thanks. Excuse me.
Avery: I was looking for Nick.
Phyllis: (Scoffs) Of course you were.
Avery: Territorial much?
Phyllis: No... but smart. Look at you. You're still a hero to the downtrodden.
Avery: Oh, I'm no hero. I'm just not a total bitch.
Phyllis: But very sneaky, aren't you?
Avery: You know what? If Nick comes by, just-- no, never mind. Just--I will leave him a note.
Phyllis: You still play this?
Avery: Sometimes, when I can.
Phyllis: Who's giving you cheats? Because I'm not around to give you handouts.
Avery: Up, up, down, down, left, right--
Phyllis: Left, right, B, A.
Avery: Nick gave me that, by the way.
Phyllis: That was a good choice on Nick's part.
(Elevator door opens)
Avery: Yeah, you can borrow it sometime. I don't have a console in my suite.
Nick: Hey, what's up?
Sofia: You, uh, see Malcolm?
Neil: He didn't come back to see you?
Sofia: No, but Moses is sleeping at the nursery. The nurse told me to get some sleep, but I-I can't. I keep worrying about what Malcolm must be going through.
Neil: Yeah. Sofia, the fact is, Malcolm might not come round, you know? We have to figure things out with or without him. I mean, you and Moses are gonna be released tomorrow, so honestly, the bigger question is, what's next?
Sofia: You're his father. You can visit him whenever you want.
Neil: No, no, no, no, no. Visit? That's not gonna work for me.
Sofia: What-- what do you mean? Um, Neil, I can't talk about this right now. I have to wait to see what Malcolm is thinking.
Neil: What Malcolm is thinking? Oh, you can see what he's-- he's not even-- what--what if he wants to, uh, go home with you and the baby?
Sofia: (Scoffs) Well, I hope to God he does. I mean, I pray that we can save what we have.
Neil: Uh-huh, and-- and if he cuts and runs as usual, then what?
Sofia: Malcolm loves me, and I love him. And we are gonna work this out for Moses.
Avery: I was just leaving you a note. You need to bring Faith to the courthouse today.
Nick: Yeah, I already saw Sharon. The answer was no then. It still is.
Avery: Well, Faith needs to be there.
Nick: This is not up for discussion.
Avery: Okay, well, we can talk about it later at the courthouse.
Nick: Yeah, we can do that. Answer's gonna be the same.
Avery: I don't think so.
Phyllis: I have a question.
Phyllis: What's going on between you and Avery?
Sharon: I just-- I-I want the jury to see me as innocent and just let me go home to my family. (Sighs) Lunches with Noah, the park with Faith. You know, I bet she can go down the slide by herself now.
Victor: There's no reason you can't see Faith today.
Sharon: Well, I-I-I would love that, but I think that Nick is right. It's too confusing for her to come to the courthouse, and I-I just can't put her through that again.
Victor: Sharon, Faith needs proper support right now, and so do you. I'm going to see to it that both of you have it.
Neil: If Malcolm cared more about your marriage than his damn ego, maybe you would get a little--
Sofia: But how hurt were you? Okay, Neil, remember how hurt you were when you found out about Lily? And you had years to love her, to do your "Daddy and daughter" things together. And Malcolm missed out on all of that, and now he's gonna miss out on Moses, too.
Malcolm: Look, we need to talk... alone.
Neil: Well, if you ask me, the three of us have a lot to talk about.
Sofia: Neil, please.
Malcolm: (Sighs) (Sighs)
Sofia: Thanks-- thanks for comin' back. Do you want me to send for the baby?
Malcolm: (Sighs) Sofia, it's been months of "Let's see." You know, let's see how we feel. Let's see who the father of the baby is. Let's see if we still have a marriage. (Sighs) Right now, I can see very clearly that I want a divorce.
Sofia: Malcolm, you're hurt, and--and--and the hurt is fresh, but we have love, Malcolm, and I--and I know that. And that means we have hope. I mean, you might want a divorce now, but today or--or tomorrow, that'll change, Baby.
Malcolm: (Sighs) Sofia... (Sighs) Just please, just-- just sign these, okay? Sign these. There's a court in Guam that'll process them, and the divorce'll be final in a week. Then I can be done with you.
Sofia: Why would you slam the door in my face? I will meet you halfway. I will meet you all the way if you let me, Malcolm.
Malcolm: Sofia, I've spent Lily's whole life playing "Uncle Malcolm," okay? Are you asking me to do that all over again? Is that what you're doing right now?
Sofia: That baby will adore you.
Malcolm: Yeah, well, how much will you adore me, Sofia, huh? Would you adore me as much as you did when you slept with my brother?
Sofia: Oh, okay. You know, I have cried. I have pleaded. I have begged you to forgive me.
Malcolm: Sofia, just please, just sign the papers, okay? Sign--sign the papers... (Sighs) So I can catch my flight. I'm trying to get to Guam.
Sofia: (Scoffs) You're just gonna run away, huh? Hmm. You have a wife here who loves you, and a baby who needs you. But no, typical-- just run away. Turn your back, huh? You know, Neil said you would.
Malcolm: You think you can sign these papers, or do you want to discuss that with Neil, too?
Sofia: Honey, I will sign the damn papers. There. (Scoffs)
Neil: Hey, what's goin' on?
Sofia: Don't. Just let him go. He's got a flight to catch.
Neil: Hey. It's okay.
Nick: Are you serious?
Phyllis: Nick, you having private meetings with Ashley-- okay, fine. I'm not marking my territory here. It's not like that. Just--with Avery, just... (Sighs) I don't want this to get out of hand.
Nick: There's nothing. There's less than nothing.
Phyllis: All right, really? Is there nothing? Did you give her this?
Nick: Yeah, I gave it to her. She mentioned she was a gamer.
Phyllis: So you just went out and bought her a video game? Really?
Phyllis: (Scoffs) This is what we do together. This is ours. I mean, it's practically foreplay.
Nick: Yeah, I know.
Nick: Um, you're jealous.
Phyllis: Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. We're not going there. We're not going there. I am not jealous. I am being preemptive with this. I'm preventing something from happening, something-- but you're being very condescending with me.
Nick: No. No, no, no. Listen, I get the whole--
Phyllis: Okay, I-I'm sorry. You--you don't see anything wrong with this? Giving her--going out and buying her a video game? Tha--does that not ring any alarms for you? That's not a problem? Explain that to me. (Sighs)
Nick: It's revisionist history, because apparently, this was you and Avery's thing first. You guys used to play video games. I'm just a cheap substitute now.
Phyllis: (Sighs) Y-you can't do this. You can't do this. I mean, this thing with Avery-- if it goes where I think it could go, we're gonna have a very big problem.
Nick: There is nothing to go anywhere, all right? And there it is. But you two have some major unfinished business.
Sharon: Nick has done such an incredible job looking after Faith while I was away. I just feel like I have to trust his judgment here as a father.
Victor: Well, he could use that good judgment to help Faith in the courtroom. We will all ease her through it.
Sharon: You know what? It's just one day out of my life, and it's-- soon, it's gonna be over with. Avery's gonna make sure that I'm found innocent, and I'm gonna be home with my kids before I know it every day, every second.
Victor: Sharon, she needs you, and you need her.
Sharon: Victor, I know you. I'm begging you, just don't do anything. Just tell me that you'll-- you'll leave this alone.
Adam: (Grunts) (Sighs) (Breathing heavily) (Door clangs on metal) (Electricity crackles) (Baby cooing )
Victor: I don't want you to get upset today, all right? You do everything in your power to keep your spirits up.
Sharon: Victor, I'm so grateful for everything you've done for me.
Sharon: I can get through today without seeing Faith. I can, and I will, so I'm trusting you not to do anything about it.
Victor: You're very strong. I'll see you in court later. (Sighs) Michael, I need you to draw up some papers today. It's very urgent. It's for Sharon, all right? Talk to you later.
Avery: (Sighs) Okay, I may be stating the obvious here, but I do what I do because to me, there is nothing worse than an innocent person being robbed of their freedom.
Nick: I'm still not bringing Faith into this courtroom. Sharon and I talked about it. She agrees it's a bad idea.
Avery: Of course she agrees, because she's worried about Faith. But do you really think it's best for everyone to keep Faith from her mother?
Nick: In this case, absolutely.
Avery: Really? You're sure about that?
Nick: Not a doubt in my mind.
(Elevator door opens)
Phyllis: Did you talk to Sofia?
Malcolm: I did.
Phyllis: Did you make a decision? How much love versus how much hate?
Malcolm: I did.
Phyllis: You gotta talk to me. I don't know what you're thinking.
Malcolm: I did the best that I could for... for Moses and Sofia. (Inhales deeply) (Sighs heavily)
Neil: Unbelievable, Sofia, that Malcolm would barge in here. You've just given childbirth. And what does he do? He makes you sign divorce papers.
Sofia: I signed the papers on my own, but I didn't have to. I could have fought, but... the contempt in his eyes just...
Neil: I don't know what to tell you, Man. I can't explain Malcolm. I'm not about to excuse that stunt that he just pulled. But right now, we got a baby that's probably hungry, you know? He's gonna need a lot of feeding, lots of diapers and bath times. All that's gonna be coming up, and you, you're gonna need support around the clock. You know that. Not just for a couple of hours twice a week.
Sofia: Well, nobody said you only get four hours.
Neil: Sofia, when it comes time tomorrow for you and Moses to check out, I want you to come to my place.
Sofia: (Scoffs) Wait, y-you're talking about disrupting your entire life and mine.
Neil: You see this little boy right here? He's already done that for us, and I'm not about to let you two go off in the world without me, all right?
Neil: My baby.
Sharon: I know. Time for transfer.
Sharon: What are you doing here?
Avery: What is this? A Newman brother thing? Leave the ex-wife hanging when she needs you the most?
Nick: Adam's a sociopath suppressing evidence. I'm a father trying to protect his daughter. Does that sound like the same thing to you?
Avery: It may have been a bit excessive on my part.
Nick: Now, Avery, was that an apology? 'Cause I think I missed the "I'm sorry" part.
Avery: I just think that Faith would have a real impact on Sharon's state of mind, and I wish you would reconsider.
Victor: Excuse me.
Nick: What is this?
Victor: This is a court order. You will bring Faith to see her mother. I've taken the decision out of your hands, okay?
Malcolm: Sofia got pissed. She signed the papers. Here I am.
Phyllis: So I guess you made your decision.
Phyllis: More hate than love.
Malcolm: I love Sofia more than I even knew. I had to make her cut me off, you know? She'd have tried to hang in there, make it work. Her heart's so big. She's too loyal. This way, she can hate me for the divorce, hate me for leavin'. Her and Neil, they have a chance to start a real family.
Phyllis: But wait a second. (Sighs) Sofia and Neil together?
Malcolm: Yeah. Yeah, this gives 'em a chance to... to do the right thing for Moses.
Phyllis: So that's it? You're just gonna sign the papers, get on a plane?
Malcolm: Yeah. I'm out. I just came to say bye.
Phyllis: But you're-- you're just going away for-- for a bit to get the divorce, right?
Malcolm: I'll e-mail you pictures.
Phyllis: From where? Listen, I don't want to make this all about me, but, honestly, if you put my friends in a room and you walked out... (Voice breaks) There wouldn't be much of a crowd.
Malcolm: (Sighs) Back at you. (Chuckles)
Phyllis: (Normal voice) This is a huge sacrifice you're making. You know that.
Phyllis: You're a good man. But I'm worried. I'm worried that Neil and Sofia aren't gonna be this miracle family that you're... I mean, that you're-- you're putting them up to be.
Malcolm: (Sighs) Phyllis, if I know anything... I know they will. (Sighs)
Sofia: Moses is the only thing that matters now. And with Malcolm getting his divorce, and... (Sighs) Doin' his own thing, we don't even have to take him into account.
Neil: This baby is his family. It could have been like his own son. And what'd he do? Took off again. No idea what he's missing out on. Isn't that right, little boy?
Neil: So, Sofia, at checkout time tomorrow, am I driving you two back to my place?
Sofia: Neil, Moses deserves a father like you. Yes. (Chuckles) We will come home with you.
Sofia: Oh, it's gonna be okay.
Neil: It's all right, Moses.
Neil: Want to go to your mommy? Want to go to mommy?
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Avery: I asked him to take that picture of Sharon and Faith.
Nick: Why would you do that?
Adam: I know things aren't going too well.
Sharon: Because of you, Adam!
Victoria: If you happen to have those divorce papers on you, I'll go ahead and sign them.
