Proofread By Emma
Tucker: I didn't want to have to resort to ultimatums, but you leave me no choice. Marry me tonight or else.
Ashley: Well, you're just really lucky that I'm not doing anything this evening.
Tucker: I'm the luckiest man I know. I'll see you soon.
Ashley: I can't wait.
Ashley: What? (Gasps)
Olivia: I got you a gift.
Ashley: You shouldn't have.
Ashley: I'm so glad you did. (Laughs)
Olivia: (Laughs) But I want you to open this later.
Olivia: Because clearly someone needs a wardrobe change.
Ashley: Oh, okay.
Olivia: I'll see you at the church?
Ashley: Yes, I hope so. Drive safely. Thanks for the present.
Olivia: Oh, you're welcome.
Ashley: I better shake it now.
Olivia: Uh-oh. No, no, no. (Laughs) Aah!
Traci: Hello. Hey! (Laughs)
Olivia: Someone here to help with the final touches.
Olivia: Mm. I'll see you after the ceremony.
Traci: Yes, please.
Ashley: Okay, hold on. I heard that all the planes out of New York were grounded. What are you doing here?
Traci: I got the last flight out.
Ashley: (Gasps, squeals)
Traci: I wouldn't miss this for the world. (Laughs)
Ashley: Oh, I'm just so happy to see you. Thank you.
Tucker: Hey, there's the maid of honor.
Abby: Okay, no offense, "Mr. Mogul," but you sounded a little tense when you called.
Tucker: Oh. It must have been the connection. So listen. You know my island, right?
Abby: Yes, I believe that everyone should own a Caribbean island or two. Or at least be related to the owner. (Chuckles)
Tucker: Well, I want to take your mom there as a surprise.
Abby: Oh, she'd love it.
Tucker: But I have to convince her to go first.
Abby: Why would my mom not go?
Tucker: One word--Jabot.
Abby: No. No, no, no, no, no. My mother is island-bound. We are going to see to that.
Tucker: That's what I wanted to hear.
Jack: So is it cheating to drink champagne before the wedding's even happened?
Genevieve: Mm, no. It's good luck. Old Australian tradition, my friend.
Jack: Okay, I buy that.
Genevieve: Mm-hmm. Mmm. (Sighs) Or maybe I just needed a little bit of Dutch courage to be your "Plus one" tonight. I had no idea that the guest list was going to be so elite. (Chuckles)
Jack: Just family. Is that a problem?
Genevieve: I think that it will be a pleasant reminder that marriage can be a wonderful thing for some people.
Sofia: Okay, keys, cell phone... rings.
Sofia: Oh, my God. Where are the rings?
Neil: The rings. Sofia, the rings. Right where you so cleverly put them about... what was it? An hour ago.
Sofia: (Laughs) I knew that.
Neil: Yeah. Of course you knew that. Sofia, it's gonna be okay. Moses is crashed out, milk's in the fridge, and the baby nurse is gonna be here later.
Sofia: So everything is perfect.
Neil: Yeah, that was convincing. (Sighs) You know what's strange? It's a little strange that, uh, ever since I mentioned the word "Marriage," things have been a little off.
Sofia: Well, it was a lovely gesture, Neil, but... look, it is 2011. Families come in more configurations than I can count. And Moses can have two completely engaged, loving parents without a marriage license.
Neil: No, no. I-I agree. That's--that's very true. But I believe that we can do twice as well as an official team, right? For a child to grow up knowing that both his parents were united in loving him, wanting the best for him, that's a gift not every kid gets.
Kay: Devon. How nice to see you. I take it you're not going to Tucker's wedding.
Devon: No, I'm not.
Kay: I'm sure Tucker hoped otherwise. But I think you've made a wise decision. It's probably better you're not there tonight.
Victoria: You're alive. (Sighs)
Jack: Any chance you'll be sharing turkey with Cane this thanksgiving?
Genevieve: I don't think that's likely.
Jack: Care to leave a place for me on your dance card?
Genevieve: That would be lovely.
(Cell phone rings)
Jack: Oh. Hey, Trace, where are you?
Traci: (Chuckles) I'm--I'm at your house. Where are you?
Jack: I'm in the middle--
Genevieve: No, go.
Jack: N-never mind. I'm on my way. Hmm. Trying to get rid of me?
Genevieve: Never keep a bride waiting. I'm looking forward to tonight.
Ashley: I just love having you both here.
Abby: No, I was thinking, I am just a lonely maid of honor, and this event kind of calls for a matron of honor.
Traci: Did you get engaged?
Ashley: (Laughs) Don't say that.
Abby: Oh, God, no! But I did call the florist and order another bouquet for the matron of honor.
Traci: Oh, Honey. I-I-I wouldn't presume.
Ashley: Oh, yeah, right.
Ashley: It's a command performance, and you're not backing out, okay?
Traci: Oh, thank you! (Laughs)
Ashley: Right? Great idea. Great idea.
Ashley: And you are full of surprises, aren't you?
Abby: I am, and surprise, they're all good ones. I want you to have the perfect wedding.
Ashley: Oh, Honey, thank you. Actually, it's getting kind of close, isn't it?
Abby: Yeah. (Laughs)
Ashley: Have you spoken to Devon? Do you think he might show up?
Abby: I'm sorry. I don't--I don't think Devon'll show up, Mom.
Sofia: Just keep your eyes on Ashley's face, the woman you love, and everything will be okay.
Tucker: Everything? (Sighs) Excuse me. I, uh...
(Cell phone rings)
Neil: Oh, I gotta take this.
Olivia: No prob. I gotta go see Moses.
Neil: Yep. Hey, Tucker, what can I do for you?
Tucker: (Sighs) Listen, um, I wish there was some other way I could contact Devon, but he's not returning my calls. I was hoping you might tell him how much we'd like him to join us tonight.
Neil: Tucker, I'm sure he's aware of that, and he's made his decision.
Tucker: I understand. All right, thanks anyway.
Neil: Congratulations, Tucker. Ashley's a wonderful woman.
Neil: Yeah, he wants, uh, Devon to go to the wedding.
Neil: Devon is a grown man. (Sighs) Tucker may have missed it, but Devon grew up.
Olivia: Mm-hmm. And Tucker has made some mistakes meanwhile. But you know what? I really think that Devon's biological father is really making an effort to know this grown man.
Devon: Yeah, you know, I didn't really think you were pulling for me to go to Tucker's wedding, 'cause the last thing you want is for me to cut the man any slack.
Kay: Actually, I very much hope you'll soften toward members of your birth family.
Devon: To you, you mean.
Kay: But Tucker's invitation is pure manipulation. A wedding raises the stakes. It puts Tucker's wishes first when yours are what matter here.
Devon: Well, I appreciate you lookin' out for me.
Kay: You're the reason I reached out to Tucker, tried to get us to come together. But he's confident he can find his way to you and still cut me off.
Devon: Oh, well, I thought this was about me not going to the wedding, but it's not. It's about you not going. 'Cause you weren't invited?
Devon: You know what? Don't even answer that. It's really none of my business. Look, whatever you and Tucker want to do to each other from now on, leave me out of it.
Victoria: (Sighs) You're here. You're safe. Oh, you're you!
Billy: All right, l-listen to me. There were, um, I got--I got mixed up in the wrong place with the wrong people. There were drugs. I swear to God, they're not my drugs. They weren't mine.
Victoria: I know. No, I know, I know. I was there. I mean, not with you. Later. Just now. I was in Myanmar, and there was a man, and he had a bag of drugs--
Billy: No, no, no, no, no. You were in Myanmar?
Victoria: Well, yes.
Billy: No, no, no, no, no. You can't go to Myanmar.
Victoria: Well, I had to. What was I supposed to do? Sit at home on the couch just wondering? 'Cause I-I knew that there was something keeping you away. I knew that. There was a tip that you were in Myanmar.
Billy: Do you--do--
Victoria: And it seemed like the logical place.
Billy: Do you know what's there? I mean, do you know what happens? These prisons--
Billy: They're not--it's-- Honey--
Victoria: I know that. I know, and the thought of you in jail was awful, but--but it was even worse not knowing what happened after they released you. I had no idea that--Billy, they made me think that you were dead.
Billy: Sweetheart, I'm not dead. I'm not.
Victoria: No, but you're not. You're here. You're here. You're alive. Ohh. (Sighs) (Breathing deeply) What the hell? Where have you been? Where have you been since they let you go?
Tucker: It was a long shot makin' that call, but I had to take it.
Sofia: Well, keep takin' those shots, Tucker. Never give up.
Tucker: Spoken like a parent.
Sofia: (Chuckles) Well, I have to admit, Moses has changed me.
Tucker: Wow, you're in love.
Tucker: You know, Neil, too. I'm really impressed by the way he stepped up.
Sofia: Yeah, well, family's important to him. Nothing else is.
Tucker: Well, what's that I'm hearing in your voice?
Sofia: (Sighs) Neil suggested we get married.
Sofia: (Chuckles) I know. Like I told him, it's not the 1950s, but he just wants to do the right thing. The thing is, though, I don't know how you can say those vows knowing it's a lie.
Tucker: Yeah, "To love and to cherish."
Tucker: Come here, Sof. Sit down. You know... (Sighs) I respect Neil's point of view, but the last thing I want for you is a loveless marriage. But it wouldn't be, right? Not on your end.
Sofia: Tucker, this has gone past "Best woman" protocol. I think we should just get back to business.
Tucker: Oh, Sof.
Sofia: Tucker, please don't.
Tucker: All right. All right.
Sofia: Look, don't make me cry.
Tucker: Okay, just listen. Just listen to one thing-- time changes everything. Now Neil starts off lovin' little Moses, you never know where that love might take him.
Neil: And then there's been this, uh, you know, this tension in the room ever since I mentioned the word "Marriage" to Sofia.
Olivia: Oh, my.
Neil: "Oh, my," what? What? It's practical.
Olivia: And maybe just a little bit of a shock to someone who's just had a divorce?
Neil: Well, don't-- don't you think I already thought of that? I did. It was a little too late. It was after the fact. Too much too soon, possibly.
Neil: And when I did it again, she was heading to a wedding.
Olivia: Well, you should fix that.
Neil: Yeah, tonight, if I can.
Olivia: Why don't you come to the church with me? Sofia'll be there. You'll be in and out before the ceremony.
Neil: Hey, youngster.
Neil: How you doin'?
Devon: I just ran into Katherine Chancellor.
Olivia: Um, look, I would love to stay here and help you with this, but I've gotta go.
Devon: You're on your way to the wedding. I know.
Olivia: Uh-huh, and I promise, though, I will see you another time. And you maybe sooner, right?
Neil: Mm-hmm, yeah. Drive--drive safe. So what's goin' on? Katherine rile you up?
Devon: No, she was just pattin' me on the back for not goin' to Tucker's wedding, as if I needed her approval.
Neil: Mnh, mnh, mnh. It is the topic of the night. You know something? Tucker--Tucker called.
Devon: He called you?
Devon: That's out of line. It is. Thank you, though, for handling it, but I don't even want to know what he said.
Neil: Come on, Man. You can bob and weave all you want. Tucker and Katherine, they're not goin' anywhere. They want to know you. That's not goin' away.
Kay: Where the hell have you been?
Jill: (Sighs) I went with Victoria to look for Billy.
Kay: (Gasps) Where did you go? What did you find?
Jill: Well, it was nothing very pretty, but he's alive. I didn't get to touch him. I didn't get to see him. But he's alive...
Jill: And he's gonna come back to us. (Laughs)
Jack: After a lot of less-than-excellent nights, I'd say this is a pretty great one.
Jack: Delia is home.
Jack: Jabot is home. And Ashley's getting properly married.
Ashley: But, you know, someone's missing.
Traci: I know. And Billy has taken off before, but this time, it seems different to me. (Sighs) I'm a little scared.
Abby: You know, it's-- it's actually nice to know I'm not the only one that's freaking out about this.
Ashley: No, you're not alone. I'm freakin' out, too.
Jack: Well, we're gonna have to double up our efforts to find him. Failure is not an option. We have to locate him and make him come home.
Billy: I-I was-- I was released, yeah, but I swear to God, I couldn't get back to you until now, uh, tonight. I was able to get back to you, and--and then I was coming, and then here you are--
Victoria: Billy, Billy, did you hear anything about Delia? Did you read any of my e-mails?
Billy: Yeah, I got your e-mails. I read your e-mails, like, a thousand times.
Victoria: You did?
Billy: I did. (Sighs) There was only one thing I wanted. I wanted to get home to you. I wanted to get home to DeeDee.
Victoria: Well, but, Billy, she's doing okay now. She's going home today.
Billy: She's going home?
Victoria: Yeah. You love her so much. Why did you leave her? And me?
Billy: I'm not good enough for either one of you.
Victoria: (Sighs) Don't you give me some stupid excuse. You--you made me-- you made me believe that we were finding our way back to each other, and then you sneaked out on me, like a coward.
Billy: I'm a coward. I got a little lost. Okay? I lost myself right after I lost Lucy and you and Delia, and I thought, hey, Man, why don't you take a clue?
Billy: Why don't you leave before you cause anybody else any more pain?
Victoria: Don't cause any more pain? (Scoffs) Yeah, yeah, because losing you was really-- oh, it was so much fun, and--and missing you, oh, that was a great time, too. It was so much fun. Well, staying away may not have been your fault, but leaving sure as hell was.
Woman: Folks, excuse me. All trans-global flights are grounded for the night. I have hotel vouchers for all ticket holders.
Victoria: Yes. (Sighs) May I have my voucher? Thank you. (Clears throat)
Jill: Victoria, call me the second you get this. I've got news about Billy. Good news. (Sighs)
Kay: Billy's safe. Delia's home. It's a very good night.
Jill: (Laughs) Well, yeah, in a lot of ways. But I know that Tucker and Ashley are having their ceremony tonight. Did an invitation come?
Kay: I didn't expect one.
Kay: But it hurts, damn it. And when I get hurt, I get angry. And when I get angry...
Jill: You get a little nuts.
Kay: (Sighs) Jill, I've done something I'm not proud of.
Neil: So Tucker was, uh, hoping that you would go to the wedding.
Devon: Well, Dad, why are you even telling me this? So I'll go?
Neil: Because you're a grown man who makes his own decisions. That's exactly what I told Tucker.
Devon: I appreciate that.
Neil: Part of being grown means sometimes, you gotta do things that you don't want to do, like calling back your birth father instead of pretending he doesn't exist.
Devon: You, Lily, and Moses-- that is my family. Why are you pushing this?
Neil: Look at Katherine and Tucker, what they've done to each other over the years because of resentment and neglect. You think I want that kind of regret growing in you?
Devon: Look, I'm gonna head out, okay? I'll see you later.
Tucker: Okay. Yeah, no, do-don't worry about that, but, you know, you have to catch me if my knees buckle.
Tucker: You think she's up to the task?
Sofia: I got your back.
Tucker: (Sighs) Okay.
Sofia: There you go.
Genevieve: Hello, Tucker.
Tucker: Excuse me.
Genevieve: I'm a little bit early.
Tucker: Genevieve. Well, you haven't changed much. So we finally run into each other.
Genevieve: Mm. I never dreamed it would be at your wedding.
Tucker: Why? Because you didn't expect to attend, or you didn't think I'd get married?
Genevieve: Funny, isn't it? Both of us here in Genoa City, and I'm dating your brother-in-law.
Tucker: I guess we both had our reasons for landing here.
Sofia: (Clears throat) Excuse me, Mr. McCall. You need to haul it to the groom's room.
Tucker: All right. This is Sofia. Genevieve.
Genevieve: Nice to meet you. Tucker, congratulations.
Tucker: Thanks. Come on.
Tucker: You better have those rings.
Ashley: Okay, I think-- I think I have everything, right?
Abby: Ooh, I got confirmation of delivery at the church.
Traci: Oh, good. (Sighs)
Ashley: Oh, groom!
Jack: The groom is waiting at the church, and do him a big favor-- don't make him wait any longer.
Ashley: Are you kidding me? We've waited so long for this day. When I think of everything that we've been through this year--
Abby: No, no, no, no, no, no. But look, look, you get upset, you go like this. Pull the lashes up.
Ashley: Oh, I'm not gonna-- I'm not gonna--I am not gonna cry. I am just excited.
Abby and Traci: (Laugh)
Ashley: And I'm so happy that you're all excited for me.
Traci: Aw. (Laughs)
Billy: (Chuckles) Is, uh, is that you?
Victoria: (Sighs) No, I'm breaking and entering.
Billy: Oh, well... (Clears throat) This is me right here next to you. I'm--
Victoria: (Sighs) (Doorknob rattles) (Deadbolt clicks)
Jill: Katherine Chancellor has a regret? 'Tis a wonder and a beauty.
Kay: Considering the unmitigated disaster you've made of your relationship with Billy, you're not one to judge me.
Jill: Excuse me? (Scoffs) Billy left Genoa City. I didn't leave him.
Kay: You left him at boarding school, and then you went on leaving him...
Kay: If not in body, then in spirit.
Jill: And you think that's on a par with being so sauced that you gave up your own child?
Kay: Billy went from being a young man building housing for the homeless to wasting his life at a poker table. And now all you can do is rejoice that he didn't end up in a ditch. Bravo!
Jill: Look, I have tried to be there for him since then.
Kay: Well, you obviously didn't try hard enough, and Billy knows it.
Jill: And I guess Tucker knows what a fabulous parent you were. But it's too little, too late, isn't it? Because I think that your son is saying his vows right about now.
(Rock version of "Bridal Chorus" playing)
Tucker: (Laughs) (Claps hands) Oh, yeah. (Claps hands) (Laughs) Wow.
Tucker: Yeah. (Laughs)
Reverend: Let us begin.
Tucker: I, Tucker, take you, Ashley, to be my wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish until we're parted by death. This is my vow to you.
Ashley: I, Ashley, take you, Tucker, to be my husband... to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish till we're parted by death. This is my vow to you.
Tucker: Thank you.
Tucker: Ashley, I give you this ring as a symbol of my vows and with all that I am and all that I have.
Ashley: (Chuckles) Tucker, I give you this ring as a symbol of my vows and my love with all that I am and all that I have.
Reverend: Tucker and Ashley, having witnessed your pledge to one another and the exchange of rings, I'm pleased to affirm that you are husband and wife.
Reverend: Those whom God has joined together, let no one put asunder. You may now kiss the bride.
Tucker: (Sighs) Thank you.
Abby: (Chuckles) (Applause)
Tucker: I just want to tell you thanks.
Ashley: Thanks for what?
Tucker: For, um, showin' up...
Tucker: Sayin' yes, and looking so beautiful.
Ashley: You look pretty fine, too.
Tucker: Yeah? Mm, oh.
Ashley: The veil.
Tucker: Get it up. Mwah.
Man: If you're ready?
Tucker: Wait, wait, wait. Hang on a second. I, um... (Clears throat) I have an announcement to make. It's time for Ashley to visit my island, as in tonight.
Tucker: As in your bags are packed, and everything is arranged. And by "Everything," I mean-- Abby?
Abby: Guess who is going to L.A. to cover your meetings and personal appearances? One guess. She's fabulous.
Jack: And who has my support, and who has it all arranged.
Ashley: Sweetie. (Gasps) And you, Sweetie.
Tucker: Oh, okay.
Ashley: Oh, no. Oh, no. Oh, no.
Tucker: No, no, no. Oh.
Abby: Don't, don't, don't. Hold it in. Hold it in.
Ashley: Uh-oh. Okay. Hold it in.
Abby: (Laughs) Sorry.
Ashley: Love you. (Laughs)
Traci: Um, Genevieve, I just want to say it's so nice to finally meet you.
Genevieve: Oh, thank you. I've heard such wonderful things about you, Traci.
Traci: Thank you.
Jack: Wow, look at her. She's just glowing.
Genevieve: Yes, they do make a very handsome couple.
Sofia: (Sighs) That man is happier than I have ever seen him.
Olivia: (Chuckles) Don't you wish it was contagious?
Olivia: Um, you know, um, I had a little talk with Neil earlier today, and he mentioned the subject of marriage came up?
Sofia: Yeah, it threw me off a lot.
Olivia: I can imagine.
Sofia: But I've had some time to think about it. Neil might be right. I'm gonna tell him yes. (Sighs)
Abby: I'm just saying that I know entrances, and that was an entrance.
Devon: Abby, I said let it go, and you keep going.
Abby: I'm done.
Abby: I've stopped. I've completely stopped.
Devon: Thank you.
Abby: I'm done. Totally done. I'm just saying that you made my mom and Tucker very happy. And now I'm done.
Tucker: That was a very special wedding march you gave me.
Ashley: It was, wasn't it?
Tucker: Did you arrange Devon being here, too?
Ashley: You know what? I was as surprised as you. Devon's here. It's entirely because he wants to be.
Tucker: It means a lot.
Ashley: Why don't we go tell him so? Come on.
Man: These are great, guys. A couple more standing right there, if you don't mind.
Ashley: Oh, okay.
Man: Looking great.
Tucker: Just a couple.
Traci: Excuse me. Come with me, beautiful niece. Let's go get a photo. Come on.
Traci: Oop. Here we go. And, you, beautiful couple you, can we have a picture?
Ashley: Hi, Girls. Come on in here.
Traci: Hi. Okay. Ready? (Laughs) Okay.
Neil: No, no, no, no, no. Not a chance.
Harmony: What-- you think you're in charge of me?
Neil: I think you need to walk away from here.
Harmony: What are you so afraid of?
Neil: I'm afraid of nothing. Nothing, because you're not going in there. You're not gonna disrupt my friend Ashley's wedding. You're not gonna make a scene or ruin this night. Now go. Get outta here now. Oh, oh, I see. That's how you're gonna play this? Because I will carry you outta here.
Kay: Take your parental judgment and stuff it.
Jill: Katherine, for God sake! There is a woman upstairs who finally has her child back home. Now don't you think we should be focusing on that instead of beating the stuffing out of each other?
Kay: I just pictured you as a pillow, feathers flying everywhere.
Jill: (Laughs) Well, my feathers are in fine shape, or so I've been told.
Kay: Ahh. It's a reflex with us, isn't it? The battle. (Groans) I'm sorry.
Jill: Thank you. I'm sorry, too.
Kay: I may have crossed over a line in this Tucker debacle. It has me worked up, to say the least.
Jill: Oh, Dear. So this thing that you did wrong-- how bad is it?
Kay: I brought Harmony back to town and invited her to live with us.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Kevin: I have to tell you something, and it's something you're gonna hate, so brace yourself.
Victoria: You've been in Genoa City this entire time, and you didn't bother to tell anyone you were there?
Myrna: I've done a lot for you, Adam, and now you're gonna do something for me.
