Episode # 9795 ~ Deacon's Revelation Stuns Nikki
Provided By Suzanne
Proofread By Emma
Deacon: What happened in the park-- if I told anyone, it would destroy your family.
Billy: Yep, I'm looking at your résumé right now.
Ricky: And I've got extensive samples of my work.
Billy: Son, I'm sure you do, but we're talking about editor in chief of a national magazine. Maybe you should start with a, uh, staff job first. What do you think about that?
Ricky: I'm just asking for a few minutes of sit-down. I bring a lot more to the table than you can tell from a résumé, and if you'd just meet with me, I-I promise you'll understand.
Billy: I'm sure it'll be a revelation. Come see me in an hour.
Ricky: All right, see you then.
Billy: (Drops phone on table)
Victoria: There he is.
Billy: Whoa! What's this?
Victoria: Well, it's a... "Whoo-hoo! I bought the magazine back" present for you.
Billy: One of Keely’s chew toys? That's nice of you. I appreciate that.
Victoria: No, it's-- it's a stress ball. You squeeze it. It's for stress.
Billy: Ohh, nice. Yeah, thing's gonna get a workout. Thank you very much.
Victoria: You're welcome, although I thought I would borrow it from you.
Billy: Well, I thought the, uh, start-up with your brother was on hold?
Victoria: Yeah, yeah, yeah, which is why I'm actually considering, maybe, going to work with my actually your family instead.
Billy: With my family? Jabot? Baby--
Victoria: Yeah. What do you think? Yeah?
Billy: Nice. See, that is great.
Victoria: Yeah, mm-hmm.
Billy: There is life after Newman. (Laughs) Kick up your heels, carefree life, work with your in-laws sort of a thing. I like it.
Victoria: Yeah, well, I couldn't exactly go and work for Newman with my dad there. Actually, my dad won't be there anymore, will he? He'll be in jail.
Billy: Yeah? And your brother Adam will have his feet up on the desk. At least you don't have to worry about that yutz anymore. Mwah.
Victoria: No, Nick will have plenty of time for all of us. (Laughs slowly)
Nick: Soak it all in. You'll be lucky to get a cubicle down in accounting after the board meets and decides who's gonna run this company.
Adam: Yeah, they're gonna choose you, the guy who cost the company half a billion dollars, over the guy with a Harvard MBA.
Nick: Oh, yeah, you got a fancy M.B.A. from Harvard.. It goes along with some criminal charges and convictions, not to mention your ongoing trouble with the S.E.C., which is probably gonna haunt you for the rest of your life. The board might let you make them some coffee, but run this company? No chance. Actually, who am I kidding? The board wouldn't trust you to let them take them their coffee, either.
Adam: (Chuckles) Have you seen Sharon lately?
Nick: Yes, I have, and we talked about how important it is that she stays away from you, and she couldn't agree more.
Adam: Hmm. She didn't mention that when I saw her.
Victor: I entered my plea. I killed Diane Jenkins.
Michael: Victor, please, just--
Judge Click: As I said, pending further investigation, the court declines to accept your plea.
Victor: Your honor, with due respect...
Victor: I loathe that woman, and I wanted her dead.
Judge Click: Order.
Michael: That's enough. Please.
Judge Click: Return Mr. Newman to his cell, please.
Sharon: Will you excuse me for a moment?
Avery: Yeah. Okay, the lead detective thinks there's more to this story. Clearly, so does the judge. Michael, this is your chance. Put personal feelings aside and let me help you prove Victor's innocent.
Sharon: You didn't do it, Victor. Be honest. Tell me why you'd lie and say you're guilty.
Nikki: Victor confesses. He's already told the world that he killed Diane. Now what could you say that would make things worse?
Deacon: Nikk, I gotta tell you, it makes me nuts seeing you all torn up like this.
Nikki: What did you see, Deacon?
Deacon: I saw everything. Victor did kill Diane... but he didn't do it alone.
Nick: You might want to rethink that.
Adam: Just a simple statement of fact. Sharon didn't mention your anti-Adam chat.
Nick: There's no way in hell Sharon would run off to you after the conversation that I had with her.
Adam: You've been warning her away from me forever, so she's finally gonna start taking your advice now?
Nick: Sharon knows, if she goes anywhere near you, I will revoke her visitation rights with Faith.
Adam: Once again, you're using me and your daughter to punish Sharon for walking away from you.
Nick: I'm just doing my job as a father to protect this little girl that cried herself to sleep every night while you let her mother rot in prison cell. Plus, Sharon’s over you. She knows how dangerous you are and what it will cost her if she goes anywhere near you. So you want to tell me again how you two got together last night?
Adam: Well, according to you, it didn't happen, so I guess it didn't happen.
Nick: That's right, it didn't happen. You're blowin' smoke, as usual. You go anywhere near Sharon, and you will take Faith from her all over again. Can you live with that? Are you enough of a jerk to let it happen again? I guess we both know the answer to that.
Sharon: Talk to me, Victor. Help me understand. Why would you let them think that you committed the murder?
Victor: (Sighs) We are not all like you. Some of us are guilty.
Sharon: Maybe other people, but not you.
Victor: Sharon, you're finally free, as you should have been all along. You look after yourself. You look after your kids. Don't spend another second worrying about me. No matter what the judge says, I'm guilty.
Spencer: I can't believe you just blew this case.
Ronan: This investigation is not closed, not yet.
Spencer: Save it. We're not doin' it here.
Michael: My client's not interested in your services.
Avery: Well make him interested. Point out there are other options. Tell him he doesn't have to walk willingly into a cell.
Michael: Because none of that ever actually occurred to me before.
Avery: Try again.
Michael: We're talking of Victor Newman, so on his behalf, thank you, but no, thank you. Oh, and before you mention it, I'm well aware that Sharon Newman is well within her rights to hire you for an independent investigation, and I also know that you're very good at what you do, and that you just might find proof that exonerates my client. Good and, of course, it would be your duty to bring that evidences to the court, even though it is contrary to what my client desires. (Sighs) I have no control over your actions. I just have control over my own.
Avery: That’s... very rational of you, Michael.
Michael: I'm known for my rationality. I hope I didn't leave anything behind. (Sighs, taps briefcase) If you'll excuse me.
Avery: Michael, what...
Avery: Oh, my God.
Sharon: What's that?
Avery: Our shot at saving Victor from 20 years to life.
Nikki: Look, if you really saw something at the park, just say it already.
Deacon: Trust me, Nikki, you don't want me to do that. You do not want to hear this out loud, but you know exactly what the truth would do to your family.
Nikki: When would that be? How? When? When you-- when you go to the police? is that your plan? You're gonna torture me until you go to the authorities?
Deacon: No, no, I-- nobody's gonna hear this, not from me. Look, I can keep this secret. I'll do it, for your sake.
Nikki: And there's nothing in it for you.
Deacon: Honey, what's in it for me is just being here with you, proving that you can trust me. I mean, come on, we had something good once. I-I think we could have something incredible again. It's--it's up to you.
Victoria: So of course, Nick needs to be at Newman so that Adam doesn't pull his "King of the world" routine again, but I can only imagine what kind of havoc he's gonna wreak on Newman this time. This thing works.
Billy: Do you feel any better?
Victoria: Huh? Yeah, I feel great. I'm just trying to break it in for you.
Billy: Oh, continue.
Billy: Look, I'm sure, uh, Nick could use the distraction, not worry about Victor or everything else right now.
Victoria: (Sighs) I don't want to talk about my dad. I don't want to talk about his confession. I don't want to talk about the fact that I never intend to speak to him again because of what he did to us. I don't want to talk about him. I will admit, however, that I am concerned about how all this is gonna affect my mom, but beyond that, it's not open for discussion, okay?
Victoria: (Sighs) Okay.
Billy: My lips are sealed.
Billy: Which is pretty bad, because, you know, I can do some pretty amazing things with 'em.
Victoria: Are you trying to taunt me? Trying to lure me in the back room so we can do very wicked things together?
Billy: Yes, I am. I am. I am, I really am.
Billy: Oh, wait a minute. (Clears throat)
Victoria: What? What?
Billy: Uh, I'm--I'm sorry. I-I forgot... (Slams hand down) I've got a meeting coming up soon.
Victoria: Oh, okay. So we don't have time for wickedness.
Billy: Mm, I like wickedness.
Victoria: No, we don't have time, but we can do other fun things, like, we can talk about setting a wedding date. When am I gonna make an honest man out of you?
Billy: I think it might be a little too late for that, so maybe we shouldn't even try, you know?
Nikki: You and I--
Deacon: No, I know that you can't see it right now, Nikki, but, Nikk, I'm loyal, and I--you know... (Sighs) I just think that we make sense in some crazy way. That we bake, all I want is for you to be happy again.
Nikki: Excuse me.
Nikki: Oh, I missed a call from Katherine.
Deacon: Great, my biggest fan.
Nikki: Oh, my God. Victor's being arraigned. I might be too late already.
Victor: Listen to me. Malloy needs to stay out of this. You do as I say, and the judge will reconsider my guilty plea.
Michael: Nikki doesn't want you doing this for her.
Victor: I am confessing my crimes. This has nothing to do with Nikki.
Michael: Oh, well, you think she wants you in prison?
Victor: I am doing what has to be done. Now as for Sharon--
Michael: Now that's another person who doesn't want to see you in a cell. Should I draw up the whole list?
Victor: You make sure that she stays away from me, as well, all right?
Michael: Why do you propose I do that?
Victor: You figure that out. Both Avery and Sharon need to leave me alone.
Sharon: This is everything that the prosecution has against Victor?
Avery: And what Michael would have challenged if--if Victor hadn't pled guilty. (Sighs) There's a confession. There's physical evidence in the form of shoe imprints.
Sharon: Oh, my gosh. Look. This is a page from Diane’s diary, and it mentions Adam. Oh, and there's Adam’s ridiculous claim that he saw the murder.
Avery: Mm. Fully convenient that he offers himself up as an eyewitness months after the event.
Sharon: Yeah, well, Adam loves a good lie, especially when it hurts Victor.
Avery: Well, he's been charged with perjury once. If we can show that he's lying...
Sharon: The judge would have to throw out Victor's plea entirely, then.
Avery: No, no, no. She doesn't have to do anything, but would it affect her ultimate decision? I think it would. Now Victor is not gonna be pleased with this interference.
Sharon: He can get as mad at me as he wants, as long as he's free.
Avery: Well, we're gonna need some luck, and right now, the issue is Adam.
Sharon: (Sighs) If only someone could get close enough...
(Cell phone ring (Ring) (Ring)
Adam: Sharon. What can I do for you?
Sharon: I need to see you.
Adam: That's not a good idea.
Victoria: You don't want to marry me, do you?
Billy: To have, to hold, to trust, to honor, to forsake all others-- Baby, I want that with you like crazy. But we did the "Father knows best" thing, and it turns out this father is a bit of a moron, so...
Billy: Why don't we stay with the Hef and Bunny theme? You know, wild, crazy? Young, sexy...
Victoria: Mm, mm, mm.
Billy: You know, and just ride that train until both of us die side by side in our wheelchairs.
Victoria: Hmm. Well, I do look good in a bunny tail.
Billy: You do look good in a bunny tail. Now let's go to that supply closet and let's talk about this a little bit more.
Victoria: (Chuckles) Wait, you have an interview.
Billy: I know, I know.
Victoria: You have an interview, and you know, it doesn't matter if we set a wedding date or not, because I am never gonna let you go ever again.
Billy: I'm not goin' anywhere. (Growls)
Sharon: You don't want to see me?
Adam: I didn't say that.
Sharon: Well, you didn't have a problem with my presence last night.
Adam: I have a lot of damage control here at Newman. I've gotta put some fires out. Um, maybe if-- maybe if something opens up.
Sharon: You'll pencil me in?
Adam: Take care, Sharon.
Sharon: He just blew me off.
Avery: (Sighs) So now what?
Sharon: Do you have that little tape recorder you use for interviews?
Avery: What are you thinking? You're gonna get Adam to admit on tape that it's all lies?
Sharon: It's almost impossible to get him to admit anything, but he might slip up. Some of the details-- enough to make the police question his statement.
Avery: That involves you being in the same room with him. You sure you want to do that?
Sharon: No, but I will, for Victor.
Spencer: What the hell were you thinking? Months on this case--months! No arrests. You can't even narrow down the suspects. You get handed a confession by a man who's dodged a dozen charges before, and you block a guilty plea?
Ronan: So forget lockin' up the right perp? What, any half-assed confession will do for you?
Spencer: We have a guilty plea. We know who killed Diane Jenkins.
Ronan: I once had a drunk in the tank that claimed he was on the grassy knoll.
Ronan: Now would that have been enough confession for you, too?
Spencer: You think your commanding officer is gonna see it your way?
Ronan: If he's interested in solving this crime, he will, once I tell him there's evidence that Nikki Newman could be the killer, and that she's letting her ex take the fall.
Nikki: Michael. I just came from the courthouse. I heard the judge rejected Victor's plea.
Michael: For now.
Nikki: What does that mean, "For now"?
Michael: It was suggested that somebody else might have been involved in Diane’s murder, so the court's waiting for more evidence.
(Cell phone alert chimes)
Michael: Oh, oops. I'm sorry, I have to take care of this. Nikki, look, please, go home. There's nothing you can do here now, okay? Excuse me.
Nikki: I'd like to see my husband, please.
Victor: What are you doing here?
Nikki: This is all wrong. I know what happened, and I know what I have to do. Look it's my fault you're here.
Victor: Stop this now.
Nikki: Not until I make things right.
Victor: I want you to get up, walk out of here, go home, or go to Katherine’s, but get away from here, all right?
Nikki: Get away from here and watch you suffer like this for something I did?
Victor: Sweetheart, stop talking. You open your mouth, you're only gonna make things worse. Is that what you want? For things to get worse?
Nikki: No, of course I don’t. I don't like to see you herein this hellhole.
Victor: Well, then, don't! Guard.
Nikki: Don't, please.
Victor: Would you kindly escort the lady out of here?
Nikki: (Quietly) Please, let me fix it.
Victor: Go.. now. Now.
Michael: Oh, well, thank you for seeing me.
Victoria: Yeah, of course. You said it couldn't wait.
Michael: Your father would like to see you as soon as possible.
Billy: Why is that, exactly?
Michael: Victor just needs a minute of your time.
Victoria: To say what? Is he changing his plea?
Michael: Just... go see him, Victoria. He'll explain everything to you in person.
Billy: And what if she doesn't go see him?
Michael: Victor made the request. All I can do is deliver it. Think about it.
Billy: Have a good day.
Michael: I will.
Billy: Look, Honey...
(Elevator door closes)
Billy: I know I've been encouraging you to stand with your family, but if seeing your father is going to, uh, throw you off or something, I...
Victoria: (Sighs) Billy, my father confessed to murder, so he's gonna be going away for a long time, maybe for good.
Billy: I know.
Victoria: My father is gone. He's gone from my life, and it doesn't really matter if he's in prison or if he's not, so... maybe now is a good time for me to say good-bye to him... for good. (Sighs)
Nick: Sharon, it's me. Call me when you get this.
Avery: Hello. I'm glad you could make it. I have some very good news. The judge wouldn't let your father plead guilty. She's waiting to rule pending further investigation.
Nick: Can a judge do that, just blow off a plea?
Avery: if she wants to make sure there's nothing else to the case, yeah, she can do that.
Nick: How'd you hear about this so fast?
Avery: I was at the arraignment, per Sharon’s request. She's convinced your father is innocent and determined to prove it.
Nick: So she's dragged you into this now?
Avery: She's so focused on clearing your father that she's walked into the lion's den with Adam, and she's with him right now.
Adam: I told you not to come.
Sharon: Well, you and I say a lot things to each other we don't mean. I need to see you.
Adam: Is this because of the stables? The kiss?
Sharon: It's because of your father. I was his arraignment, and to hear him insist that he killed Diane, I just-- still can't imagine it.
Adam: Well, some of us don't have to imagine it to see it up close and personal.
Sharon: But that kind of rage... I thought I knew Victor.
Adam: No. You know his dark knight shtick. Manipulating lesser mortals, convincing them that... convincing them that he knows best, but... I know the real Victor Newman.
Sharon: To think that the man that I trusted and put my faith in-- I just can't wrap my head around it. How am I supposed to wrap my head around that?
Adam: Diane defied him. She humiliated him. Those are two things that Victor Newman will not tolerate, so she paid for her sins.
Sharon: So what happened, exactly? I mean, maybe if you walked me through what you saw that night, it would just help me learn to accept it.
Adam: All the gory details, huh? You're not even bracing yourself, 'cause you don't believe there are details, do you? You don't think he did it.
Sharon: Do you really believe that your father is the killer?
Nikki: (Sighs) (Inhales deeply) (Clears throat)
Spencer: That's right. Thanks to Malloy, you still have an unsolved murder on your books. He's right here.
Ronan: Yes, Sir. Yes, Sir, but the evidence in the-- I know it's circumstantial, but I think it warrants further investigation that-- yes, Sir. No, I understand.
Spencer: Screwed me out of a conviction and screwed yourself out of a job. Clear out this office. It’s the last case you've blown for the G.C.P.D.
Nick: You let Sharon go see Adam.
Avery: She's an adult. She doesn't have to ask my permission.
Nick: It's a bad idea, and Sharon knows that.
Avery: She found a logical way to get your dad out of a very difficult situation.
Nick: Yeah, logic flies out the window when Sharon gets around Adam. After all the things that he has done to her, you send her to see him anyway?
Avery: I didn't send anyone anywhere.
Adam: The difference between you and me, Sharon, is that I don't believe people are inherently good. I know what they're capable of, and I've seen what my father's done.
Sharon: Well, then, tell me what really happened. Once I understand exactly what he did, then I can see Victor the way you do, for who he really is.
Adam: (Sighs) I'd like to help you on your path to reality, but I have a company to run, and you shouldn't be here anyway.
Sharon: Why not?
Adam: Because it's not smart. It's not what you need.
Sharon: You always told me I could take care of myself, but no one gave me enough credit for knowing my own mind, and now you want to tell me what I need?
Ricky: And I have a separate list of references.
Billy: Nice. I see that-- professors from journalism school. Do you have another one of these with references from publishers or journalists? Something I can use?
Ricky: All right, I'm-- I'm just out of school, but I've got real-life experience.
Billy: Hey, Man, I don't doubt that, and you have a great résumé, and like I said, you could probably just slide right in to a-a starting position a maybe even mid-level, but this is editor in chief.
Ricky: I am a proactive, full-throttle journalist, kind of like the last editor of "Restless Style." sure Phyllis swiped my photos, but it was an educational experience. You get the story, whatever it takes, and I took that lesson to heart. Now let me be perfectly clear with you. I'm not trying to pull a power play here or back you into a corner. This isn't quid pro quo. This is an aggressive pursuit of information based on the public's need to know.
Billy: Wow. You were on the high school debate team, weren't you? I could tell, because my mind instinctively tuned you out after you said "Full-throttle." Mm. The rest of whatever you said just flew right by me, a-and--and don't get me wrong, I like talk. I use it all the time, but this... (Taps table) This is print.
Billy: It's not radio, and, Son, I'm telling you...PR (Hits table) You're not ready, okay?
Ricky: Yeah. Yeah, I am. You're back with Victoria Newman, correct?
Ricky: Well, I got bombshell news from the G.C.P.D. today, news that would blow Ms. Newman's mind.
Victor: It down.
Victor: Thank you for coming.
Victoria: Well, Michael made it clear that it was very important.
Victor: Today's the day I entered a guilty plea for Diane Jenkins' murder and the judge rejected my plea.
Victoria: So what happens now?
Victor: It is obvious to them you haven't wanted to see me. Um... if you do as I say, you won't ever have, to look at me again.
Victoria: What are you saying?
Victor: I want you to verify Adam's statement, and I'd be locked up for life-- that you saw me kill Diane Jenkins.
Deacon: Hey, come on--
Nikki: Stop, leave me alone, leave me alone, leave me alone.
Deacon: No, no, give me this. You don't want this, all right?
Nikki: St n--
Deacon: Nikki, Nikki! Honey, come on. Baby, come on, you don't want to do that.
Nikki: Ohh, God. (Sighs) You don't know what I want. How the hell do you know what I want? You don't know anything. I just want... (Sighs) Yeah, I want--I just want, like, the last six months to... (Imitates explosion) Be gone, you know? No, no, I want-- I want the last year to be gone. Oh, God, please just make it like-- just make it like this year didn't happen.
Deacon: Nikki, come on.
Nikki: No, I-I always...just I always tried to help him, and it-- he pushes me away. He--he's pushed me away, and it is my fault.
Deacon: Oh, come on.
Nikki: It is totally my fault, and he knows it, and... (Sniffles) And he hates me. (Sobs)
Deacon: Come on, Nikk.
Nikki: (Sighs) God, I don't know how to fix that.
Deacon: Nikk, come on.
Nikki: Do you know how to fix that?
Nikki: (Sniffles) No, I don't know what to do.
Deacon: Okay. Well, listen to me. We can't erase the last six months, because then I wouldn't know you.
Deacon: Knowing you has been about the best thing that's ever happed to me. Maybe it's the best thing that ever happened to you, too.
Deacon: You just rest. Just rest, Baby. Take it easy. I'm gonna take care of everything.
Michael: Ooh, oh! I'm so sorry.
Avery: Sorry. I wasn't looking.
Michael: (Chuckles) Well, preoccupied.
Michael: Well, I hope there's no hard feelings with regard to my very firm insistence that you and Sharon not involve yourselves in Victor's, uh... situation.
Avery: You simply made your point. No reason for me to take offense.
Michael: So... you've backed off. You found nothing of use.
Avery: Actually, today has been a real eye-opener in all sorts of ways.
Billy: You need to brush up on your research skills, friend. Victoria's father-- he already confessed. That's old news. We're not interested. Thank you for your time.
Ricky: This has nothing to do with Victor Newman. The police have evidence pointing towards another suspect. They think that Victoria’s mother might be the perp.
Victoria: You want me to lie for you. You want me to lie to the police. You know, I knew you didn't do this, Dad.
Victor: There's a reason you stayed away from me because you think I've betrayed you. Now you do as I ask, and you will get exactly what you want.
Victoria: Exactly what I want? At--what do you think I want? Do you think I-I want to see you locked up for something that you didn't do?
Victor: I am guilty.
Victoria: No, if you were guilty, you wouldn't be asking me to lie for you. You’re trying to throw them off of this investigation. You're trying to throw them off so they stop looking for the murderer. Daddy, who do you care enough about to throw your entire life away for?
Deacon: Yeah, hello. I'd like to make, uh, a reservation, please, for two, from Genoa City to Las Vegas. (Chuckles) No, no, no. We'll--we'll be traveling first class all the way. Great. Uh, as soon as possible, please. Thanks.
Next on "The Young and The Restless"...
Deacon: Just be sweet to me like you used to.
Nikki: You can't be serious.
Avery: I knew you weren't completely over Phyllis, but you're not even over Sharon.
Victoria: This seriously is worst thing that you could have done. I want you to get out!
