Nick: There we go.
Phyllis: Yeah. Hey.
Nick: You didn't have to do that.
Victor: You're welcome. I want to know more about how that film footage was disposed of.
Phyllis: (Sighs) Well, first we all held up scorecards as to who had the best attack on Diane.
Victor: Well, it seems that as of yet, Malloy is not aware of that footage, but somebody obviously is. We've got to find out who and what they're after.
Nick: I still say it's Adam.
Phyllis: Yeah, listen. He was the only one who wasn't there.
Phyllis: He always wants the upper hand. Always. Always. I guess because he wasn't you.
Avery: Morning. (Sighs)
Avery: Victor, whenever you're ready.
Victor: Thank you, Avery. Uh, Avery is filling me in on Sharon's defense, okay?
(Cell phone vibrates)
Avery: Excuse me. Avery Clark.
Adam: Adam Newman calling from the G.C.P.D. station, where I'm having a lovely conversation with Detective Malloy, and I might be in need of some representation.
Avery: Then you just wasted a call. Was your other son always delusional? Adam's being questioned by Malloy and he just called me for legal assistance. Unbelievable.
Victor: I'll be damned.
Victor: Avery, kindly take a seat. I'll be with your shortly, okay?
Avery: Nice to see you all.
Phyllis: So Adam is being questioned by Malloy. Wow, what's he gonna say to deflect the attention off of himself this time?
Nick: That film could be changing hands as we speak.
Ronan: It's kind of a wuss move, isn't it? Calling a lawyer when we're just having a chat here?
Adam: Look, Ronan, you've kept me on ice all night. No charges. So either pull something out of your hat, or you gotta let me go.
Ronan: (Chuckles) Trust me. I'm weighing my options. But I'm pulling for door number one.
Colin: I'm glad you could make it.
Genevieve: Last hurrah before they send you back to Oz. My, my. All of those charges that you are facing now. Go ahead, Honey, let it out. Tell me how frightened you are about being locked away in your cell, powerless, knowing full well that no one will ever give a damn about you again.
Colin: Well... (Clears throat) I'm not drawn and quartered just yet. But in order to mount a credible defense, I might need a few million of those items you took from me back. I'd like 'em back now.
Jill: (Sighs) Go on. Give it your best shot.
Kay: I beg your pardon?
Jill: Colin is a piece of scum, and you called it the first day he got into town. And you want to throw an I-told-you-so celebration. Well, here's the guest of honor. Party on.
Paul: So you ready? I consider it my duty to Hollywood to get you fed. Otherwise, you forget to eat.
Paul: You got a lot goin' on up there.
Nina: Well, every writer needs a little bit of drama in her life to keep things sharp, but this is ridiculous.
Paul: It is, too, isn't it?
Nina: What? (Gasps) (Laughs) Oh, my God! You're back! Oh! My baby's back! (Gasps) (Laughs)
Jill: Go ahead. Say it.
Jill: Oh, you know you want to.
Kay: Not this time.
Jill: All right, Colin's no good.
Kay: Well, you, uh, you cared for him, and he betrayed you. There's nothing there to celebrate, is there?
Jill: I was a sucker, okay? You all told me exactly what he was, and did I believe it? No. So a good friend would not sit there and simper at me.
Kay: I, um, I don't simper.
Jill: Well, evidently, you're not a good friend either.
Kay: Well, friends, uh, show, you know, um, sympathy, understanding.
Jill: You better lighten up or I will not tell you how I handcuffed the son of a bitch to the bed and bagged an international crime boss for the police.
Kay: Mm. (Chuckles) Oh.
Genevieve: Several million items of yours? Where would I put them all? You must be mistaken.
Colin: (Laughs) I got to admit it. You're more of a pistol than I ever gave you credit for. Touché. I bow to your superior ability. But... well, now I think it's time that you cut the old man a-a bit of a break.
Genevieve: Why would I do that?
Colin: Oh, Auld Lang Syne. Time goes by. Champagne and opera on the Sydney Harbour. All those cruddy clubs you dragged me in and out of, bookkeeping in bed. You made accounting much sexier than it had a right to be.
Genevieve: When it was good, it was very, very good. And when it was bad, you tried to kill me. Kinda hard to bounce back from that one, Colin.
Colin: Oh, what do we got here? A selection of your latest limericks?
Genevieve: Oh, no, no. Something so much more special than that.
Colin: You know, there's some people might say that... that that's the key to the world.
Genevieve: Or some people might say that it is the key to your codes and your accounts. And with it, I will put you behind bars for the rest of your life.
Chance: Mm, okay, okay.
Chance: Wow, that's a tight grip for a little person.
Nina: Yeah, well, if I could reach, I'd smack you upside the head. Months without a word from you, months.
Chance: Mom, it goes with the job, okay?
Nina: Well, I know that, but I don't have to like it.
Chance: The state department had reassigned me to a highly classified international case. The kingpin of the case was here in G.C., and since I'm a native son...
Paul: The Colin Atkinson arrest.
Chance: Yeah. The guy had some reach. He had a drug business from Afghanistan all the way to Australia. I got in last night for the arrest.
Nina: Last night? You were in last night?
Chance: Yeah, Mom, y-yes. I had debriefing, and then I had to do a follow-up at the police station. It's a nice, tight case, so now I am here.
Nina: So wait a minute. The G.C.P.D. made the arrest? Are you working with Ronan?
Chance: Yeah. Yeah, I am.
Ronan: This drive that you took last night-- where and why?
Adam: (Sighs) Second verse, same as the first. Look, are there any charges in there somewhere? Some accusations? Or is this just a case of a lonely, friendless man who just needs someone to talk to?
Ronan: So the desk clerk tells me that you were agitated when you came back to the club last night.
Adam: That's right, Ronan. I had a lot on my mind.
Ronan: And my phone in your possession. A boatload of murder suspects got a text from this phone last night. Everybody made the hoedown but you.
Adam: Yeah, obviously, it was a setup, because that phone showed up at my place late last night.
Ronan: Is that what it was? A setup?
Adam: You know, my father came a-callin', and he, uh, he told me about this hoedown, as you put it, and I had no knowledge of these texts or a meeting until he told me about it. And then later, that's when the phone showed up. For all I know, my father set it there. Perhaps anyone did. But my money is on my Pops, because that man would love to see me behind bars.
Phyllis: (Quietly) There's no way that Adam doesn't have a copy of that footage. There's no way.
Phyllis: And he can hand it to Malloy at any time.
Nick: I'm gonna talk to Malloy, see if I can find out what Adam's told him so far.
Victor: Son, I'm not so sure you should do that. You'll just arouse his suspicion, that's all.
Nick: I can play this so Ronan keeps his eyes on Adam, not on the rest of us.
Victor: Well, if you'll excuse me.
Phyllis: Yeah, your talk with Avery. Better you than me.
Victor: I'm sorry to make you wait.
Avery: Oh. (Sighs) Well, regarding Sharon's defense, I thought you would want to know... (Sighs)
Victor: There's something more pressing I think you and I should discuss. I want you to reconsider representing Adam.
Ronan: Pointing the finger at your father again? (Chuckles) It's a little late for that, isn't it? I mean, especially since we've confirmed it was Diane's handwriting in that journal. You know, the one that predicted you would do her harm. So we add in motive, a weak alibi, the Harvard ring imprint on her arm-- and, well, yeah, your general lack of cooperation.
Adam: And yet you still don't have enough to arrest me.
Ronan: That was before I found my phone in your room.
Adam: A petty theft that I didn't commit. You must be so very proud of yourself.
Ronan: Hey, Adam, it's called impersonating an officer. Eight counts of it, actually. I'd say years in jail.
Adam: Because I'm a moron, and I would leave a phone that I stole out in plain sight in front of the man who I stole it from? Perhaps you did all this. Maybe you orchestrated this-- whip up your suspects into a frenzy, get the killer to out himself?
Ronan: Too bad your call for legal help was a bust, huh? It's just not your day.
Avery: Let's say I represent Adam, which I'm not agreeing to. What's the endgame?
Victor: You try to find out what his attitude is towards Sharon, and try to find out what he knows about Diane's murder investigation.
Avery: It would be an ethical sinkhole for me to take on Adam while defending Sharon, and my focus per your mandate is Sharon's defense.
Victor: You are under no obligation to either me or my son Adam.
Avery: But it doesn't hurt to talk to potential clients, as long as my focus stays on my current case.
Victor: It never hurts to talk.
Nina: So that's the secret mission that you were on? Well, at least now I understand why you all had to keep it-- wait a minute. You all had to keep it quiet, including Ronan... which explains why he was so completely unwilling to tell me, you know, why he left the way he did, where he's been. So he's told you everything by now, right?
Chance: No. No, he hasn't, Mom.
Paul: You know, this is the part that I find really hard to understand. Here you are-- two people working on the same case, and you don't even talk about the transplant? How he mysteriously disappeared from the hospital after you gave him half your liver without so much as a thank you?
Chance: No, we've-- we've talked, but only about the case. Nothing else.
Paul: Hmm. Well, given what he owes you, that shows amazing willpower on your part.
Nina: I don't know how you do it. It makes me crazy every time I see him.
Chance: Ronan... doesn't let personal issues get in the way of him doing his job. I'll give him that. He wanted to score the arrest, and he did.
Nina: Come to lunch with us.
Chance: (Sighs) I wish I could, all right? But, uh, Mom, I can't. I have to, uh, I have to get down there and--and be there for Colin's deportation case, so...
Nina: Is that now? I-I would like to sit in on that.
Paul: What, for Jill?
Chance: Uh, Ronan will be there.
Nina: No, good. I-I want to see what you and Ronan have accomplished together.
Jill: You should have seen the delivery boy's face. Mm, but the handcuffs worked. There he was, lying there practically spread-eagle waiting for the police to come get him.
Kay: He, uh, ever play his "Have mercy on me" card?
Jill: Oh, yeah. He begged, and he pleaded, and he tried to play me again and again. Anyway, he's making his grand exit from Genoa City and, uh, I want to go watch that.
Jill: You comin' with me?
Kay: I wouldn't miss it. In fact, I have a few words I'd like to say to Mr. Atkinson myself.
Colin: Some things need to stay private. Why don't you burn that?
Genevieve: Burn it? More ashes? After what you've done to my home, to an innocent woman? Oh, no, no. Thank you, uh, I have learned my lesson. I'm not gonna play with fire anymore.
Colin: No one needs to see that, Love.
Genevieve: Oh, but they do, Love. They do. The authorities need it so that they learn how you made, laundered, and spent all your ill-gotten gains. Your goose is cooked, right over that open flame you were in such a hurry to create.
Colin: But you see, they're items that you took from me. Now once I tell them that, you become the goose.
Genevieve: What a cruel lie, from the same man who tried to kill me.
Colin: Where is it? Caymans? Swiss bank account?
Genevieve: I have no idea what you're talking about. Uh, some of us have to work for a living. My money comes from Jabot. You know, I'm not that same working-class girl that you took advantage of all those years ago.
Colin: (Sighs) Genevieve, no one's gonna buy that "Poor me" act once I give them the lowdown on you.
Genevieve: How sweet, Honey. You're gonna have a hobby while you're locked away in your hot, cement, little Aussie jail cell. Mm-hmm, you're gonna be a busy bee.
Phyllis: If only you had chased Adam out of town.
Victor: Yeah. (Sighs) Hmm. If only... I'd done a number of things. You know, last night, I went to see him after I left the warehouse. And, you know, he's a damn good liar. He's a pathological liar. But when I told him about the text that all of us had received to meet at the warehouse, he seemed genuinely surprised. Maybe we are focusing on the wrong person.
Phyllis: I don't know if I agree with that. I mean, I don't want to agree with it.
Victor: Well, maybe Malloy gathered us all together there, and now Nicholas is playing into his hands.
Ronan: You can take this one to his cell.
Adam: "This one," huh?
Nick: You were arrested?
Adam: Would you bail me out if I were, Brother?
Ronan: Can I help you?
Nick: We were right. Adam was behind last night.
Ronan: (Scoffs) I'm not about to discuss my case with you.
Nick: Do whatever you want. You can just listen. Then you can thank me. But I have D.N.A. proof that Adam is deep in this.
Ronan: What do you have?
Nick: Those pictures that you have of Ashley and Diane in the park-- one of them was mailed to Ashley in this envelope. I had it tested, and here are the results.
Ronan: You ran it for prints and D.N.A.?
Nick: Yeah. There's enough D.N.A. marker to prove there's a match. Look, Adam has been messing with Ashley this whole time, and last night, he moved on to everyone else.
Ronan: Okay. Why? Entertainment purposes?
Nick: I'm guessing to set someone else up to take the fall for a murder he committed.
Adam: You came. I'm touched.
Avery: I didn't hear you out on the phone. I'd like to rectify that now.
Adam: I remember once upon a time... (Sighs) Back at the Athletic Club, I told you that I often need representation, and your response was basically, "Go to hell." And here you are. I guess it's my lucky day.
Avery: In yet another holding room? If that's luck for you...
Adam: So you're gonna take me on as a client?
Avery: Convince me.
Adam: I've done things. I know that. You know that. Hell, the free world knows that. But what Ronan is charging me for, what he's inquiring about, I didn't do. He's railroading me. I'm being set up, and he's talking serious time, and I'm innocent. That's your specialty.
Avery: Mm. That must be terrifying for you to know you're innocent and it doesn't matter, to feel so out of control. Cops, lawyers, judges, guards-- they have all the power. You have none. Sitting in a cell alone thinking about your old life, your son, your daughter...
Adam: Are we talking about me? Or are we talking about Sharon?
Avery: I'm talking about the innocent woman that you could save.
Adam: What does that have to do with the here and now? Okay. So you came here about Sharon. And if you had to deal with slimy old me, well, them's the breaks, huh? Didn't think you had it in you. I think I'm in love.
Avery: I'm flattered, really. But I was simply saying that I know what it's like to watch the innocent languish.
Adam: Let's get to the horse trading, shall we? What you bring to the table, what I bring to the table.
Avery: Okay, you need support, someone who has your back, and of course, there's something reassuring about the trust between client and attorney. Confidentiality is key.
Adam: As I recall, once I pay my lawyer, everything I say is privileged information.
Avery: I'll get Ronan off your back, and then we can talk about other issues.
Nick: Adam has already tortured Ashley before, and he tried to frame my father for murder. He knows how to make other people take the fall.
Ronan: Why am I just getting this now and not when it was delivered?
Nick: For the obvious reason of self-protection. And now you know everything.
Ronan: This is useless, and you know it. No chain of evidence, no proof that you're not trying to deflect suspicion from yourself. And after last night's warehouse tea party...
Nick: Adam was behind that. Why else would you have him here?
Ronan: You're just gonna keep on fishing, aren't you? Good luck with that.
Nick: Adam gathered us all last night in your name. I mean, you said it wasn't you, so who is it then?
Ronan: And all you guys did was waste some time and some gas. It was a phone prank. But it was enough to get you running here, wasn't it? But this...
Nick: That proves that you're on the right track with Adam.
Ronan: You keep saying that-- Adam, Adam, Adam. Adam's not the only person I'm looking at. Thanks for stopping by.
Genevieve: Oh, how wonderful. One of you to hold Colin down, and the other one to kick him?
Kay: Oh, my God, you're back?
Kay: Oh, oh. Well, it's clear that I was the last one to know.
Nina: I only just found out myself.
Jill: He's been working on a very important case.
Paul: Chance has been working for months to bring him down.
Jill: And I'm very grateful.
Nina: Are you here to see Colin?
Genevieve: I think they had sort of a tag team planned.
Jill: Actually, I want to see him alone. You can catch up with Chance.
Nina: Are you sure?
Jill: Yeah, I got this.
Kay: Don't you ever get tired of being a hero?
Chance: This was not all me, not by a long shot. Ronan was a big part of it... and Cane.
Kay: Cane was involved also?
Chance: Yeah, well, and--and Grandma.
Kay: Well, I heard what she did...
Kay: In vivid detail.
Colin: You look great.
Jill: (Chuckles) And you look like a crime lord about to be booted across the world.
Colin: You know, I liked the handcuffs. It's too bad we, uh, couldn't have made better use of them.
Jill: Are you flirting with me?
Colin: You came here to see me.
Jill: I came here to see you in chains. I like you in chains.
Colin: That's it? One last look? Come on. What do you think's gonna keep us apart? This piddling cell? Bars? A puddle of an ocean? No. No, our love-- it burns bright. And I can't wait for the inevitable, uh, let's-get-back-together party.
Jill: You're gonna have a really, really long wait.
Genevieve: I have something that might help with your case. You know, Colin rented the mansion before I did, and he left something behind-- a notebook, and I recognized it from when we lived together before. And although I admit it makes absolutely no sense to me, I do know that it's very important to him, because if I ever went near it, he would yell at me.
Chance: Well, that might be very important to the team then.
Colin: Hey, slow down. It's murder tryin' to... run in these things.
Avery: Come on, Malloy. How long are you gonna hold Adam, and for what? This is ridiculous.
Ronan: Nick Newman delivered proof that Adam had a crime scene photo and was using it to harass a citizen.
Avery: From the civilian brother who hates him. Yeah, that evidence isn't compromised.
Ronan: Are we gonna have the "Siblings with a grudge" conversation, huh? Yeah, you representing Sharon. Now Adam. I'm sure Phyllis loves that.
Avery: Interesting how you can get information on me, and come up empty on the Jenkins case. Perhaps you should stop dividing your energies. Look, you can't hold Adam on a phone that showed up at his door.
Ronan: And the fact that I had a warehouse full of suspects, and your new client was the only one missing.
Avery: If you had a party, would you invite Adam Newman? You can't make an arrest. Let him go.
Ronan: A phone, the warehouse... it's all tied to the murder. All I keep gettin' is one lie after another. No one wants this crime solved.
Avery: Okay, I get it. Trust me. I've seen it. They double-cross. They two-face. They--they attack each other. And then they're right there reaching out with a helping hand.
Ronan: Yes, I know. Its one twisted family, isn't it? They can attack each other, but if you attack one of them...
Avery: An outsider? No, no. That's not allowed. But you're not an outsider, technically.
Ronan: And technically, neither are you. What, do you feel like you're part of the gang here, huh? The town's filled with entitled liars.
Avery: Ahh, you're getting jaded, Detective. You need to see things like I do. Everybody lies sometimes. It doesn't make 'em guilty.
Phyllis: (Quietly) Okay, if Adam wasn't behind the screening... let's say he didn't kill Diane, all right? Who did?
Victor: I don't know. There were a hell of a lot of people who loathed her, resented her. You even picked up a rock against her.
Phyllis: Yeah. You had a rock in your hand, too.
Victor: But you must know that a man in my position doesn't have to resort to such primitive tactics to remove an obstacle.
Phyllis: But this obstacle tried to take down your company and said horrible things about Nikki in the press.
Victor: Must have really irked you when you found out that Diane Jenkins was back in town and that she had slept with Nicholas. Hmm?
Phyllis: I dropped my rock.
Victor: Did you? I'll be damned. Hmm.
(Cell phone rings)
Victor: Sorry. I need to take this, okay? 0(Ring)
Phyllis: Excuse me. (Ring)
Victor: Nikki? Hi, Sweetheart. Where are you now?
Chance: I'll take it from here.
Genevieve: Wait. You'll need this. Whatever it is, I certainly hope it helps.
Kay: I told you so.
Avery: Ronan can't hold you. You're free to go.
Adam: This temp thing is workin' out great.
Avery: Well, we still have a few minutes of confidentiality, if you'd like to say anything with impunity, no legal consequences whatsoever.
Adam: This is still about Sharon, isn't it? You can't let it go.
Avery: Can you?
Adam: You know that... you know that thing you said that time about revenge and jealousy and me finding out about Sharon and Sam?
Avery: Those are powerful emotions. They've led more than one person to murder.
Adam: It wasn't murder, but it was just as bad. I'll tell you about the memory card.
Nick: Well, that was a bust.
Nick: Ronan gave me nothing about Adam or if he knew anything about the film.
Phyllis: Your father doesn't think Adam's behind it. I don't know. Maybe we were right the first time. Maybe it's just Ronan trying to stir things up, flush out the killer.
Phyllis: Did he bait you?
Nick: Yeah, a little. I mean, the guy's kinda hard to read.
Phyllis: Yeah. I like a challenge. Excuse me.
Nick: You like a challenge? Wait. Hold on. What is it you think you're gonna get out of Ronan that I didn't?
Phyllis: Really? Um, I'll just tell you. I have skills that you do not possess with a man.
Nick: That's true.
Victor: Well, Son, I've got some good news. I just talked to your mother. She's leaving rehab.
Nick: Great. When's her flight?
Nick: I'll go pick her up.
Victor: No, you can't, because she is gonna take a trip before she comes home.
Nick: That doesn't make any sense.
Victor: It doesn't make any sense, but, um, whatever your mother wants to do, we accept.
Ronan: My nine little liars.
Ronan: The missing piece.
Ronan: (Scoffs) Someone other than Adam is yanking my chain.
Ronan: "There's no place like home." "There's no place like home."
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Tucker: I need to know if that film changed things for us, the way I went after Diane.
Cane: I should go.
Phyllis: We shouldn't be enemies when we could be so much more.
