Ronan: I didn't see a photo of it.
Man: Well, there should have been. You know, I'll go find it.
Ronan: Yeah, do that. Hey, you know what? Just grab me the actual bracelet.
Man: You got it.
Ronan: All right.
Ronan: Morning. What's up?
Chance: I just got word... (Sighs) Atkinson's been transferred to Barwon Prison in Australia.
Ronan: That's good. That's very good news.
Chance: Yeah. Plenty of crime lords there to keep him company for a while.
Ronan: That's right. He'll feel right at home, won't he?
Chance: (Chuckles) More so than you felt the other night? Dinner with Mom and me? Hmm?
Ronan: It was fine.
Chance: Yeah, it was great. It was a blast-- for the five minutes that you were there.
Ronan: Hey, I mean, duty called.
Chance: Fine. Let's reschedule.
Ronan: You need to stop pushing this on me.
Chance: No, I don't.
Ronan: Chance, all right, Nina has you, all right? The son, the perfect son, the son every mother could want. There doesn't need to be a relationship between me and her, so just stop it, please. It's a bad idea.
Chance: The hell it is.
Nina: (Gasps) What's this?
Paul: (Chuckles) Well, read the card and find out.
Nina: Okay. (Gasps)
Nina: Mm. (Giggles)
Victor: Don't waste your time reading that garbage, Darling.
Sharon: (Sighs) If you know it's garbage, then that means you must have read it.
Victor: That reporter had no business speculating about the outcome of your trial. He has not talked to Avery to know anything about her game plan.
Sharon: You don't have to have insider information to see where things are headed. (Sighs) That's why I don't want you testifying. It... it's most likely not gonna help me, and it could get you in a lot of trouble. I hope that you didn't come here trying to change my mind.
Victor: I came here because I understand Sam left town unexpectedly, and I don't want you to go to the trial all alone without support.
Sharon: Thank you. That's so kind of you. But, you know, I am alone, and it's going to be that way for a very long time, so I might as well get used to it.
Victor: You're not alone, and you know that we will stand by you.
Sharon: Haven't you noticed, Victor? Everyone but you is gone.
Victor: That is not true, and I don't want you to think that way.
Phyllis: I don't know why you're not callin' me back. I hope you haven't taken those pictures of Adam and Heather to another outlet. I would be very disappointed. Listen, um, nobody can give you the exposure that "Restless Style" can. No one can do that. I can put 'em up on the blog in seconds. Please, please call me back. If it's about the bonus... we can talk about that. It's negotiable. Anything is negotiable. Please, Ricky, call me as soon as you get this.
Nick: Ricky? As in Paul's son?
Phyllis: Yeah, I was just leaving him a message.
Nick: Yeah, I got that. I just didn't know you two knew each other.
Phyllis: Yeah, we met the other night.
Nick: Oh, okay. What'd you need to talk to him about? It sounded pretty urgent.
Avery: You got something for me?
Ricky: Yeah, I do. I actually had it last time we talked. I'm sorry... I'm sorry I didn't give it to you earlier. You'll understand when you see.
Avery: So it's not just a rumor.
Ricky: You know what the weirdest part is? Adam called me, told me it would be worth my time to come down to the club. Told me to bring a camera, told me where and when exactly to stand and wait to get the best shot.
Avery: He set Heather up... for Sharon's sake.
Adam: I gave you a gift, Ricky. Morally, ethically, you are obligated to do everything you can to defend your client, and if you're smart, maybe you'll make a little money on the side. Call me as soon as you get this.
(Knock on door)
Adam: Oh, good morning.
Heather: No, not really.
Adam: Why? Are you nervous about the trial?
Heather: Uh, actually, I'm--I'm okay in that department, um, as long as nobody finds out what happened, uh, what almost happened between us the other night.
Adam: I'm surprised you remember, actually. You had quite a bit to drink.
Heather: Yes, I did, which is the only reason I... it was a lapse in judgment on my part.
Adam: Well, don't worry about me. I'm--no one's gonna hear anything about this from me.
Heather: (Sighs) Oh, my God. What have you done?
Victor: You know that Avery's doing everything she can for you. You know that.
Sharon: Yeah. That's because that's her job. She's a very committed professional. She is not my friend. She's not family.
Sharon: And that's not to say that I don't have any family support. There's been Noah. He's been wonderful, probably far more so than I deserve, but I just-- I don't... (Sighs) I want him to focus on his own life and his career. I don't want him holding my hand. And my mother-- well, you know the story with her.
Victor: (Sighs) Yeah. I understand that, um, Sam didn't want to leave town.
Sharon: Yeah. I had to convince him. Can you believe that? He's... he's made so many sacrifices for me, and I-I just started to feel guilty, and--and it just wasn't fair to him.
Victor: You know what disappoints me the most? That Nicholas hasn't stepped up more. Do you feel the same?
Sharon: I understand, you know? I've--I've done things that he never dreamed or imagined that I could do. I mean, he can't trust me anymore. He doesn't know what to expect from me. So I guess I-I can't expect the same things from him anymore. You know, I can't... I can't assume that he's gonna be there for me like he used to be.
Victor: You may accept that. I can't.
Phyllis: Um, Ricky is a budding journalist, and he was interested in doing some freelancing for us.
Phyllis: Yeah. I think it's a good idea. I think he has potential.
Nick: Does his "Potential" have anything to do with the fact that he's working on Sharon's trial?
Phyllis: Well, we are a magazine, and it is a huge story. I think it helps us to have more than one source, and Avery isn't going to be very forthcoming with me.
Nick: If Avery is not giving out any information, maybe she has a reason for that.
Nick: Maybe she doesn't want any bad publicity for Sharon's trial.
Phyllis: Well, that doesn't matter to me.
Nick: Look, I know you don't care what happens to Sharon, but--
Phyllis: Whoa, whoa, no, no, no. No, that's not what it is, and that is not what I meant. Bad publicity at this point is not gonna hurt Sharon's trial. It's not. And all the stories that I run on her have basically made her a celebrity. Who told the world that there was a memory card that could basically prove her innocence? I did. Who also told the world that Adam had it in his hot little hands but destroyed it? I did. I have done a hell of a lot more to free Sharon than Avery could possibly do.
Nick: Avery got her a new trial.
Phyllis: Which she's blowing, by the way. She's gonna need someone to pull her butt out of the fire along with Sharon. Wouldn't it be rich, wouldn't it be brilliant, if that person happened to be me? (Sighs)
Avery: I think I can get a mistrial with these. I'll need you to testify, of course, verify their authenticity, but are you willing to do that?
Avery: Are you sure? Heather's your sister.
Ricky: Well, she's not my sister in the way that you'd normally think about it. We just met for the first time a couple weeks ago. But I still felt enough of a connection that I knew I couldn't sell them.
Avery: Sell them?
Ricky: Yeah. Someone made me an offer on 'em.
Avery: Must have been a good one.
Ricky: I'm not gonna profit off of them. But that doesn't mean that I owe it to Heather to suppress them, either.
Avery: No, of course you don't. Look, if she had these feelings for a key witness, she should have never taken the case.
Ricky: She--she strikes me as the kind of person who--who thinks she can get away with anything-- bending the rules. She was probably spoiled by our father growing up. It's obvious that he thinks she could do no wrong.
Avery: Well, he's about to find out otherwise, isn't he?
Ricky: Heather made her choice. Let her live with it.
Adam: Why are you getting so upset? I just told you--
Heather: Yeah, yeah, one of your slippery, technically true promises. "Nobody will ever hear about this" from you. What does that mean?
Adam: Just what I said.
Heather: So people will hear about it from somebody else?
Adam: Heather, you give me too much credit. I'm not as clever as you think I am.
Heather: I don't understand. Why--why--why would you want to sabotage me? Not me. The case. You changed your mind. (Sighs) You're back on Sharon's side, aren't you?
Adam: How would this help Sharon if-- well, I guess if people thought you and I were colluding together against her during this entire trial, that could be a problem for you.
Heather: You bastard!
Ronan: I hear you got a new job. Congrats. You leaving town soon?
Chance: (Sighs) Well, when I do, it's not gonna be in the middle of the night without even saying good-bye to Mom.
Ronan: I'm sure it won't be, because you and her are very close. You have been your whole life. It's a little different situation over here.
Chance: Ronan, she wants to get close to you, too. And deep down, I truly believe that you want to get to know her better. Otherwise, why would you have shown up the other night?
Ronan: Well, I was just hungry, Chance.
Chance: Oh, come on. Ronan, what is holding you back here, Man? I mean, what has you so petrified from opening up just a little bit to Mom?
Ronan: If you're done playing psychologist on me, I have a case I need to be working on.
Chance: Okay, yeah, get up. Walk away. That's--that's right. This is the job where you get to ask all the questions, and no one else gets to, right? Huh? Is that how it is? Is that how Ronan operates? You know what? Here's the thing-- maybe the reason why you won't answer mine is because you don't simply have an answer at all. Is that it? I mean, is that why you're so walled off, Ronan? From me? Mom? Everyone? Because if that's the reason, if that's the answer, that's really sad to think about, Man. You're just a detective, a guy with a badge, who doesn't have a clue. (Scoffs)
Nina: Well, I have got to watch what I say around you. I mention a play's got good reviews, and now I have tickets.
Paul: Well, I was thinking we could spend, you know, the whole weekend in Chicago.
Paul: Chance will have already left by then.
Nina: And Ronan certainly won't miss me, so...
Paul: Yeah, but, you know... (Sighs) Our children have kept us very busy lately.
Nina: (Laughs) Yes, they have.
Paul: And I think that, uh, maybe we've been distracted from some of the conversations we ought to be having.
Nina: Like what?
Paul: Well, I'd like to talk about the future, maybe our future.
Nina: Should I feel guilty about keeping you away from Ricky? I mean, he just got to town.
Paul: No, not at all. I'll make time for Ricky. Whether or not he'll have time for me, I don't know. (Chuckles)
Nina: What, is he being standoffish?
Paul: Oh, no, no, not at all. It's, uh, he's just so involved with this case.
Nina: Oh, well, thank goodness they're not all like Ronan.
Paul: I know. I mean, I half expected there to be some--some tension between Ricky and me because I wasn't much a part of his life when he was young.
Nina: But he understands why. Right?
Paul: Well, he seems to. I think he's just happy to be getting to know this side of the family better.
Ricky: You okay? Here, let me call Dad.
Heather: No, no, please. Don't do that. He will think I'm such an idiot. I am such an idiot. (Sighs)
Ricky: I'm sure he'll be supportive, whatever it is that's going on. Uh, he's been there for you your entire life. Why would he stop now?
Heather: You've got the wrong idea about us. I mean, that's not Paul's and my story at all.
Avery: Great news.
Avery: I think we're gonna get a mistrial.
Sharon: (Gasps) How?
Avery: You can thank Adam.
Nick: All right, something's weird here. Aside from you claiming that you're on this mission to save Sharon--
Phyllis: I just want to run a hot story. That's all I want. That's all I've ever wanted.
Nick: And it's also a chance to one-up your sister, which makes it better, right? Yeah, don't deny it. I can actually feel the competitive vibe coming from you.
Phyllis: Oh, really? Is that the vibe you get? What kind of vibe do you get from Avery?
Nick: Um, that vibe would be strictly professional.
Phyllis: Really? Yeah, that was professional, what I saw at Crimson Lights when you guys were in each other's arms.
Nick: So that's why--okay. Okay. She was having a bad day, all right? I guess. I don't know. I was there. What? No. No, no, no. You are not gonna turn this into something it's not, all right? And I don't want you going off and doing something to screw up Sharon's case just 'cause you're pissed at me.
(Cell phone alert chimes)
Nick: Don't do that. And as usual, there's a problem in the art department.
Phyllis: Oh, yeah, go to it. I'm sure there are a lot of girls there who are stressed out and need a hug. (Sighs)
Nick: Nothing happened.
Ronan: I'm a cop.
Phyllis: I know you are.
Ronan: Which makes this...
Phyllis: Very wrong.
Ronan: Very wrong.
Ronan: This is a bad idea.
Phyllis: Those are always the best ideas, aren't they? The bad ones.
(Scribbling on notepad)
Phyllis: Wait, who's this...
(Elevator door opens)
Phyllis: Ronan. (Scoffs)
Ronan: That-- that's an awfully big box for a bracelet.
Man: All the smaller things were together.
Ronan: (Sighs) All right, thanks.
Nick: Dad. Are you looking for me?
Victor: As a matter of fact, I am, Son. I came to apologize for getting a court order forcing you to take Faith to see her mother.
Victor: I know that you eventually would have come to the conclusion yourself that it was wrong to keep Faith away from Sharon.
Nick: So you are apologizing, but you still think you were right to do that.
Victor: I acknowledge that I overstepped, okay? But I'm asking you not to take out whatever anger you have toward me on Sharon.
Nick: I don't appreciate you characterizing it like that.
Victor: How else would you describe it, Son? You turned your back on someone you know is innocent.
Nick: I didn't turn my back on her, Dad.
Nick: I told you from the beginning that I would help Sharon any way I could with the magazine.
Victor: With the magazine.
Nick: Anything beyond that, I have to establish some boundaries. You might want to look into that.
Victor: Meaning what?
Nick: Why do you care so much about Sharon?
Victor: Isn't it obvious? Why wouldn't I care about the mother of my grandchildren?
Sharon: (Scoffs) Adam set this up?
Avery: Mm-hmm. He doesn't want to see you convicted, but he doesn't want to put himself in the hot seat, either, and admit Phyllis was right about him having the memory card.
Sharon: So he... instead does this.
Avery: Mm-hmm. Well, if the judge declares a mistrial, there's a chance that the D.A. might not want to take your case to court again.
Sharon: Because it's more trouble than it's worth?
Avery: That's what Adam is banking on.
Sharon: (Sighs) But there's no guarantee of that, though.
Avery: No, my guess is that Spencer will think third time is a charm.
Sharon: Well, if he does, Adam's off the hook because of these pictures.
Avery: Right. The judge will never let him testify with this.
Sharon: So once again, Adam comes out without a scratch, and meanwhile, Heather's career and her reputation are destroyed.
Avery: You ever have a cat bring you a dead mouse and expect you to be thrilled with it? That's Adam. I'm sure he thinks this is the height of chivalry, he's your hero come to save you.
Adam: Hey, Faith. Hey, you. What you doin'?
Faith: Scary fingers.
Adam: (Gasps) Scary fingers! Guess what? Mommy's gonna come see you real soon.
Adam: Mm-hmm. I promise.
Heather: (Sighs) I didn't even know Paul growing up.
Ricky: You didn't?
Heather: No, I-I grew up with my mother and--and my stepfather. He was definitely a big influence, probably why I became a prosecutor. Definitely why I'm so screwed up when it comes to men. (Sighs) He used to beat my mother up.
Ricky: I'm sorry. I-I didn't know.
Heather: It was a big family secret. Nobody knew. Well, some people suspected, but nobody did anything about it.
Ricky: Did he hurt you?
Heather: He threatened to, so my mother killed him. I'm actually surprised Avery wasn't more thorough. She didn't have you investigate me.
Paul: Hey, my two favorite people. How's it going?
Ronan: (Sighs) Okay, well, that's definitely not Victoria's.
Ronan: Can I help you?
Phyllis: Don't look at me like that. Please don't even go there.
Ronan: Well, I won't, because we agreed that neither one of us is gonna go there again. Right.
Phyllis: Exactly. That's what we agreed. And that's twice as true, especially after what you did.
Sharon: (Sighs) I know exactly how Heather is going to feel when she sees those photos.
Avery: Yeah, well, don't feel too sorry for her. It's not the first time she's crossed the line ethically. She's a disgrace to her office, and it's an office she's not gonna have much longer.
Sharon: And Adam claims another victim.
Paul: So you guys have, uh, time to sit and have some coffee?
Ricky: No. No, no, um, I'm sorry. I've gotta run.
Paul: Okay, I'll... catch you later. How about you?
Heather: I'm due into court.
Paul: What? Sharon's trial?
Paul: Hold on. Are you worried? I mean, from what I read in the paper, everything's going your way.
Heather: (Sighs) Yeah, but, I mean, everything can change on a dime. I mean, if I let my guard down, Avery is not above using underhanded tactics.
Paul: You know what? You can handle anything she throws at you. You know that. Don't worry about it. Okay?
Heather: How's it going with you and Ricky?
Paul: You're the second person to ask me that today. And I haven't been able to spend as much time with him as I would like because of the trial, but, uh, I'm looking forward to getting to know him better like I did you.
Heather: Well, it's better late than never.
Paul: You know, I-I feel awful about all the things I missed out on with you two.
Heather: Can't change it now.
Paul: Are you okay?
Heather: Yeah, I'm fine. I'm fine. I'm just--I'm late. Wish me luck.
Paul: Okay. Good luck.
Victor: Sit down, Son. (Sighs) Let me ask you something. Does it really surprise you that I feel partly responsible for what happened to Sharon? That she went to Hawaii because of what I had done to uncover what I had done hiding Skye Lockhart?
Nick: There's more to this than guilt or family obligation, Dad. I mean, be honest. If this were Phyllis in this situation, would you be reacting the same way?
Nick: Yeah, you've always had a soft spot for Sharon.
Victor: Son, who wouldn't have a soft spot for her knowing about her childhood, knowing how tough that was? And then she marries you, time to get all that behind her, only to lose her children and to lose you to Phyllis. And then she gets involved with that psychopath Adam. That's too much for any one person to deal with. She's alone, and it saddens me.
Nick: Look, if you think you can change Sharon back to the person she used to be, you can't. So give it up. Sharon's changed now. Now whether that was under the influence of Adam, I don't know. But she is reckless, and she is unreliable. Dad, I know you don't want to see that. Hell, I didn't want to see it. But I had no choice. I have children depending on me. They have to be my priority.
Victor: And I understand that. But you don't think Phyllis is unreliable and reckless? Would you prevent Phyllis...?
Victor: From seeing her child? Of course you wouldn't. Do you hold Phyllis to the same high moral standards that you do Sharon? You and I both know the answer to that. It's no. And I don't understand that.
Phyllis: You had no right to read that e-mail. You had no warrant. You had no right.
Ronan: I don't need a warrant for something that's in plain sight.
Phyllis: You don't?
Phyllis: Okay, so I guess the same follows with you. This is all in plain sight, right? I don't need a warrant...
Ronan: Phyllis, stop it.
Phyllis: You know? I can look at anything on your desk.
Ronan: Just listen. Okay, that's enough. Just stop.
Phyllis: What's all this? Ooh, evidence.
Ronan: Stop. Stop it.
Phyllis: Oh, my God.
Adam: What do you want?
Avery: Got your photos.
(Electronic lock beeps)
Adam: Mm, I don't know what you're talking about.
Avery: I'll be making a motion for a mistrial within the hour.
Adam: Thanks for sharing.
Avery: Even if it's successful, Sharon probably won't go free. At best, it buys me time to figure out how to get that memory card out of the creek and into the hands of the authorities.
Adam: You violate the attorney-client privileged, and I will have you disbarred.
Avery: Oh, I don't doubt that for a second. You had no qualms about destroying Heather's career, did you?
Chance: They said at your office that you were gonna be here.
Heather: Uh, yeah, but, um, I kind of have to keep my head in the game right now, so can we just talk later?
Chance: I'm just checkin' in. You weren't very happy with me last time we saw each other, so, um...
Heather: Well, I'm gonna get over it, but, uh, right now, I, um--
Chance: I know. I know. I know. I know. Big case.
Heather: When your work is all you have, you sort of don't want to blow it, you know what I mean?
Chance: Yeah. There's no chance of that happening, by the way. Heather, you're an amazing lawyer, and you're an even better person. Everything's gonna be fine. Everything is gonna be great for you.
Heather: I wish I had that confidence. (Chuckles) Even more than that...
Heather: I just wish I could see myself the way you just described me.
Phyllis: Where did that come from?
Phyllis: You dredged the creek, didn't you? The--where Diane was killed.
Ronan: Do you think that this is somehow related?
Phyllis: No, not to the murder. To something else. Did someone else look at that? I mean, did you see it?
Ronan: No, I haven't seen this yet. But obviously, you think I should.
Phyllis: Adam had the memory card from Sharon's camera. He had it for a bit, I think. It has audio proof on it that Sharon was trying to save Skye, not kill her.
Ronan: I know. I read your blog in "Restless Style." But the chances that this is the same memory card are just--
Phyllis: Who throws a memory card in a creek? Who does that? A betrayed lover. Adam. I mean, I think that we should look at it. I-it's not gonna kill us to look at it, right? I-I don't even know if it's gonna work, because it's been in water. Should we even try?
Ronan: Well, there's only one way to find out.
Nick: Thank you so much.
Woman: You're welcome. Bye, Faith.
Nick: Say "Bye-bye." All right, Beautiful, what do you want to do today? Want to play football?
Nick: No, let's go to the park. Want to go to the park?
Nick: No park?
Faith: I need to hold your phone.
Nick: You want my phone? Okay.
Faith: Mommy lost?
Nick: Oh, um...
Faith: Mommy lost?
Nick: No, Sweetie, that's not mommy.
Nick: That's not mommy.
Sharon: (Sighs) Listen, Avery was here, and you're never gonna believe what happened. I...
Sharon: Victor, what's wrong?
Sharon: No, you--you're-- you're concerned about someone. Is it Faith?
Victor: I don't want you-- I don't want you to be alarmed, okay? I just had some words with Nicholas.
Sharon: "Words," meaning...
Sharon: You argued. Was it about me?
Victor: And I doubt I got through to him. In fact, I may have made things worse.
Sharon: I really appreciate that you tried.
Nina: No, no. They're that way on purpose so they don't show the part where I squashed them when I hugged him. (Laughs)
Chance: (Chuckles) And that is why we can't have nice things.
(Knock on door)
Nina: Oh, excuse me. You're back.
Paul: How are you?
Paul: Well, I wanted to see Chance before he left, okay?
Nina: Yeah. Come on in.
(Cell phone rings)
Nina: Oh, that's mine. I'll be right there.
Paul: Hey there.
Chance: Hey. That's a great gift you got her.
Paul: Well, I hope she likes the play.
Chance: Eh, it won't even matter. She'll have just as much fun dissecting it if she thinks its crap anyway.
Chance: Um, by the way, I saw Heather.
Chance: No, uh, just now.
Paul: How did she seem?
Chance: She was... emotional, but we talked, and I think she's gonna be just fine.
Heather: I don't want to talk to you right now, Adam.
Adam: I'm here to give you a heads-up.
Avery: What is it?
Ricky: I was so worried I wouldn't catch you in time. I'm sorry. I cannot let you use those pictures. You were right-- I can't do this to my sister.
Avery: Ricky, this is too late. It's happening.
Ronan: Okay. Let's see what we've got.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Billy: I need to see my family. Will you help me?
Avery: There's a matter that requires your attention.
Paul: What's goin' on here?
Adam: Ask your son.
