Episode # 9797 ~ The Honeymoon Is Over for Nikki and Deacon
Provided By Suzanne
Proofread By Emma
Victor: What does it say?
Sharon: "Nikki Newman, ex-wife of billionaire Victor Newman, has gone from toasted to toasting. Mrs. Newman went from an alcohol recovery program in Dubuque to Las Vegas chapel, where she wed former felon and current bartender Deacon Sharpe. Apparently not sobered by the fact that she's still a suspect in the murder of Diane Jenkins-- thank you, 'Restless Style,' for that tidbit-- Nikki abandoned her ex-husband, who recently confessed to the crime himself, and faces the possibility of life in prison." Victor, I am so sorry.
Deacon: Oh, come on, Mrs. Sharpe, smile. Every picture tells a story, and you know which story we're trying to tell with these.
Minister: All done.
Deacon: (Laughs) No, no, no. I think we're just gettin' started, aren't we?
Nikki: Like hell we are.
Deacon: (Grunts) (Laughs) She's a kidder, this one, eh? (Slaps Nikki's bottom) Come on, Baby. Mwah!
Nikki: That's enough. Stop.
Deacon: She likes it like that. Come here.
Nick: So that's it. You're not interested in me at all.
Avery: No, I'm not.
Nick: You know, your pulse says otherwise. Come on, let's get out of here.
Avery: I forgot my coffee.
Nick: Hey, don't go away--
Avery: Oh, God. You know, one kiss, no matter how good, does not make me forget that you're a jerk.
Nick: But you thought it was a good kiss.
Avery: I'm-- mm, I'm serious.
Nick: Okay, I can see that. Look, I don't like Sharon with Adam, all right? In fact, I hate it, but it doesn't mean I want to be with her, 'cause I don't, and Phyllis, I mean... (Sighs) That's over.
Avery: Okay, good. So fine, you don't want Sharon and you don't want Phyllis.
Nick: No. I want you, only you.
(Cell phone alert chimes)
Nick: Sorry. What the hell?
Avery: What? What's wrong?
Billy: Done. Our readers know that we were hacked, and nobody at "Restless Style" had anything to do with that article on your mom.
Victoria: Well, it's probably already gone viral.
Billy: Yes, Honey, um, it's kind of hard to unpublish something that was already published. (Chuckles)
Victoria: Well, at least you were able to stop the bleeding.
Billy: (Clears throat) Um... wow. Uh, maybe not.
Victoria: What? Another article on my mom?
Billy: Well, yeah, yeah. But not about her being questioned by the police.
Victoria: Oh, come on. What is it?
Billy: You know, I really don't want to show you this.
Victoria: Well, you might as well get it over with.
Victoria: Oh, my God.
Phyllis: "A breech in security led to an article being run on our web site earlier today. Every effort is being made to track down the person responsible for this malicious attack."
(Cell phone rings)
Phyllis: Hi. Are you calling to welcome me home?
Phyllis: You want to do that in person?
Ronan: You have my address.
Phyllis: I do. I have something to take care of first, okay?
Ronan: Okay. Don't take too long.
Phyllis: (Sighs) Oh, this won't take long at all.
Deacon: (Laughs) Okay. I'm sorry. Hey, would you guys mind? Just--just give us a few minutes alone, all right? She's a firecracker, isn't she? (Laughs)
Minister: Uh, you can get the photos online.
Deacon: Oh, good, okay. Yeah, let's do that. Uh, we'll take care of that. Hey, thank you so much, both of you. You guys are great. (Chuckles)
Nikki: What do you want more photos for? They already saw all the ones that you posted.
Deacon: Because I want one on top of our mantel. I want one in a silver frame that's gonna be monogrammed. Do you understand? And you're not gonna screw it up for me.
Nikki: Do you understand I'm leaving?
Deacon: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, that's good. 'Cause I got a stretch limousine outside, and it's gonna take us to one of the hottest restaurants in town, and we're gonna get this honeymoon started off right. Understand?
Nikki: I understand you're gonna start it, and you're gonna finish it all by your damn self! Don't follow me.
Sharon: Talk to me.
Victor: Nikki married Deacon. What else is there to say?
Sharon: (Sighs) Something. Anything. I'm sure you're angry.
Nick: We'd like to speak to our father.
Sharon: Of course. I'll be back.
Victor: Thank you for coming.
(Knock on door)
Victor: Have you spoken to your mother?
Nick: No, but I'd like to hear what she has to say for herself.
Victoria: Okay, listen. Maybe... maybe she's been drinking. Because why else would she do something like this?
Nick: Being drunk is no excuse to marry a slimeball like Deacon Sharpe.
Victoria: She has had a lot going on, a lot to deal with. She just got out of rehab. He confessed, and maybe there's other things that we don't even know about.
Victor: You mean stuff that your husband wrote in that garbage rag purporting that your mother was responsible for Diane Jenkins' murder?
Victoria: Dad, listen. Billy did not write that article. "Restless Style's" web site was hacked.
Nick: Is it true, Dad? Do the police really think that Mom was involved in Diane's murder?
Victor: They have no evidence against her.
Nick: Well, that's never stopped these guys before.
Victor: Trying to find out, I told them who did it, and, um, they keep on harassing my family.
Nick: Well, I guess they're having as hard a time believing that you killed Diane as we are.
Victor: I did.
Victoria: (Sighs) Poor Mom. She must be so completely scared. Why else would she marry Deacon Sharpe?
Nick: I just don't get how she can do this to you, Dad. You stood by her the whole time she was in rehab. You brought her home. You did everything you could for her, and this is how she pays you back?
Victor: (Sighs heavily) What has happened to our family? Hmm. (Sighs) Your mother has gone through hell and back, okay? (Sighs) Just forgive her what she has done now.
Nick: Deacon took advantage of Mom. As mad as I am at Mom, it's his fault, and I'm gonna fly to Vegas and kick this guy's ass. I'm so sick of him.
Victor: Son, I understand what you're feeling, but please don't do that, okay? Don't do that.
Billy: (Sighs) Yes? Oh, no.
Phyllis: Oh, come on, Billy. Please.
Billy: Phyllis, I have nothing to say to you.
Phyllis: Well, I have a lot to say to you regarding that article in "Restless Style" about Nikki. Just one minute. (Clears throat)
Billy: Sure, come right in. Go ahead.
Phyllis: You were hacked.
Billy: That's old news.
Phyllis: Yeah, I know.
Phyllis: But let me tell you something-- it wouldn't have happened if I were there, because it never did happen when I was editor, because I prevented it from happening. We had the most amazing online security.
Billy: Mm-hmm. I'll just hire a computer geek to make sure it doesn't happen again.
Phyllis: Computer geek.
Billy: A computer geek.
Phyllis: Billy, like he's gonna deliver the stories that I deliver--those good, cutting-edge stories. Come on.
Billy: (Scoffs) Are you really coming into my house and asking for your job back?
Phyllis: (Stammers) Don't--don't put it like that, okay? Let me be honest with you.
Phyllis: We understand each other, okay? We know what it takes to sell magazines. Listen, um, you pulled that story on Nikki. All right, you had to do that, because it was family. But part of you didn't want to do it. Right? I mean, you and Victoria are doing well. You don't want to go after her family. I understand that. But down the road... I know you.
Phyllis: Yeah, I do. You're gonna want to get back at Victor. We can play, you know, "Good husband, bad journalist."
Billy: Ooh, okay. Time's up. Please leave.
Phyllis: Sometimes you have to do what you don't want to do to get what you do want. (Snaps fingers) Remember that.
Billy: (Laughs) (Sighs)
Nick: Oh, come on, Dad. You'd be the first one out the door and on a plane to Vegas right now if you weren't locked up.
Victor: Son, I understand your feelings. I really do. But fighting that sleazeball is only gonna make matters worse.
Victoria: Yes, and Mom is just gonna get caught in the middle.
Nick: Okay. Then I'm just gonna go grab Mom and force her back into rehab. And then once she sobers up, she'll realize what a mistake this is.
Victor: Nicholas, you cannot force her to face her problems. You can't.
Nick: Why not?
Victoria: Because it's not gonna work, okay? We just need to get her back here and show her a little love and support, and then we can get her to where she needs to be. (Sighs)
Victor: Look, I know you're both very disappointed in your mother, but please don't try to judge her, okay?
Nick: I just don't understand how she can do this, Dad. You're facing a life sentence in prison. Doesn't she give a damn about anybody?
Victor: Just promise me, you'll stand by her.
Sharon: Oh, Avery.
Avery: Hey. Hi, Sharon. (Sighs)
Sharon: Join me.
Avery: Oh, you know, thanks. I think I'm gonna go work out my stress in the gym.
Sharon: Mm. I don't think anything could relieve my stress.
Avery: Nick told me you weren't able to get Adam to admit he lied about seeing Victor kill Diane.
Sharon: Well, if Nick hadn't shown up, I might have.
Avery: Yeah, I'm sorry. I told him where you were. I had no idea that seeing you with Adam would set him off like that.
Sharon: It's not your fault. As usual, Nick blew everything out of proportion.
Avery: Well, I'm sure you two will work things out.
Sharon: We're right back to where we were before I went on trial. Nick's using Adam to try to take Faith away from me.
Avery: I didn't realize things were that volatile between you.
Sharon: (Sighs) They always were, even when we were together. But we're not together now, and I'm not going to let him take my daughter away from me.
Avery: Well, good luck.
Sharon: Oh, I don't need luck. I need you to represent me when I fight Nick for custody of Faith. You're helping Daisy, making sure her parental rights are protected.
Avery: Well, that's different. I'm working on her criminal case, so getting visitation rights for her daughter was filing a simple petition. What you're asking for, that's a lot more complicated.
Sharon: If you can get innocent people off of death row, I think you can keep Nick from taking Faith away.
Avery: Sharon, I just, um, I don't feel comfortable doing this.
Sharon: Well, you've represented me before, and you're even helping me with Victor's case.
Avery: I know. I'm sorry. I-I can't do this. If you'd like me to recommend somebody for you, I'm happy to make a call.
Sharon: Wait, wait, wait. Avery. I know what this is about. You don't think I can win.
Sharon: I've been to prison...
Sharon: Accused of murder, and you don't think that I stand a chance against Nick.
Avery: Sharon, that is not it.
Sharon: Well, then if that's not it, then what could it possibly be?
Avery: Sharon, I have a conflict of interest.
Sharon: What conflict of interest?
Avery: I've been seeing Nick.
Victoria: (Groans) Boy, that definitely left me with more questions than answers.
Nick: Tell me, what the hell is the matter with our parents?
Victoria: Dad claims that he killed Diane because she attacked our family. Mom runs off and marries Deacon.
Nick: So instead of Dad putting his fist through a wall when he hears what Mom has done, he's just totally cool with it?
Victoria: (Groans) Has the whole entire world gone crazy, or is it just our family?
Billy: (Sighs) Yeah, the Newman family definitely hasn't cornered the market in insanity.
Nick: Rough day at the magazine?
Billy: You would have thought that getting my magazine hacked would have been the worst part of my day.
Nick: Well, I'll let you fill Vick in on the rest, and then she can tell you about our awesome day. Let me know if you hear from Mom.
Victoria: Yeah, uh, you, too, okay? (Sighs)
Billy: What's the matter, Baby?
Victoria: I'm just-- I mean, come on. I mean, for my mom to run off and marry Deacon.... (Stammers) She must have been falling apart right in front of me, and I never saw the first sign of it.
Billy: Blaming yourself isn't gonna do you or Nikki any good. Why don't you wait till she gets home and see what you can do from there?
Victoria: Yeah, okay. Yeah, that's what I told Nick. (Pats Billy's lap) How about you? How was your day? What happened while I was out?
Billy: Well, you know, the usual. The neighbor accused me of stealing the newspaper. Keely got in the trash.
Billy: Phyllis came over.
Phyllis: Just hi? I was expecting, you know, fireworks.
Victor: I heard.
Nikki: Victor, I... I can explain.
Ronan: (Sighs) I didn't realize how much I missed you.
Phyllis: I'm glad to put you out of your misery.
Ronan: You did.
Ronan: Oh, you did. (Sighs)
Phyllis: Good thing you're working from home, because if we did... that... in your office, we would get arrested...
Phyllis: Although that's kind of exciting, isn't it? Maybe next time.
Ronan: I'm afraid not.
Phyllis: 'Cause you're chicken?
Ronan: I am. No. I would do that with you anytime, anywhere.
Phyllis: Then what's stopping you?
Ronan: What's stopping me? Well, I don't have an office anymore. I got fired.
Victoria: I'm telling you, nobody does "Un-freaking-believable" like Phyllis. Does she actually think you were gonna hire her back after she stole Lucy from us?
Billy: Oh, I mean, you know Phyllis.
Billy: Tear through a life, leave a tsunami of destruction behind, and never look back.
Victoria: Yeah, without one ounce of remorse. She better never show up here when I'm home.
Billy: Ooh. Nasty girl fight. I like it.
Victoria: You like when I'm feisty?
Billy: You know I like it when you're feisty.
Victoria: Yeah, well... (Sighs) I've had enough going on to rile me up right now.
Billy: Well, I was hoping that tonight we can dial it back a notch or two, you know? A nice quiet evening, no outside problems, no craziness, just you and me.
Victoria: Yeah, sure. Sure.
Billy: Yeah, sure. Your eyes are not saying, "Yeah, sure." Your lips are, but your eyes are over there. I--
Victoria: What are my lips saying now?
Billy: "Shut the hell up, Billy." That's what they're saying.
Billy: Uh-huh. Mm.
Sharon: You... and Nick?
Sharon: How long? I mean, if-- if you don't mind me asking--
Avery: No, we got close during your trial, and I'm sorry. I probably should have told you before.
Sharon: You know what? You don't owe me any explanations. (Sighs) I'm glad you told me, though. It always helps to know.
Avery: Well, you see why I couldn't represent you in a custody case.
Sharon: Oh, believe me. Had I known this, I would have never asked.
Avery: I'd still give you some names if you want them.
Sharon: Oh, that's okay. I'll find one on my own. However, I do still need you to help me with Victor's case.
Nikki: (Sighs) I know what you must think of me.
Victor: No, you don't.
Nikki: There's so much... that I don't-- I can't explain.
Victor: (Sighs) I guess you, um, you did what you felt you had to.
Nikki: I never meant to hurt you.
Victor: I think you should go.
Nikki: You're right. (Sighs shakily) You're right, I-I should go.
Victoria: (Sighs) (Moans) Oh, yeah.
Billy: I bet Jim...
Billy: Never gave Margaret a massage like this.
Victoria: (Sighs) You know, I think that the Andersons were much more adventurous than anyone realized.
Billy: Oh, yeah?
Billy: "Father knows Best..."
Billy: "The lost episodes." (Chuckles)
Victoria: Wouldn't it be nice if we could live our lives in 30-minute segments?
Victoria: Each one with a happy ending.
Billy: (Laughs) Well, we could try.
Victoria: (Sighs) Yeah?
Billy: Oh, yeah. Like tonight's episode started off with a romantic dinner for two that I just put in the oven...
Victoria: (Grunts) (Sighs) Okay, hold on. Um... TV dinners?
Billy: Hey, hey, hey, hey. Don't get picky here. It's only a 30-minute show. I don't want to spend the entire episode in the kitchen--alone.
Victoria: Okay, okay, okay. So how far into the segment are we?
Billy: About ten minutes.
Victoria: So what do you think we ought to do with the other 20 minutes?
Billy: (Clears throat) (Whispering indistinctly)
Victoria: That might have to run on cable.
Billy: That might have to be pay-per-view.
Billy: Yeah. Mm.
Victoria: (Sighs) Billy?
Victoria: Can we make this show an hour?
Billy: Ohh... gettin' greedy.
Phyllis: Wow, so because you wanted to get to the truth, Walsh persuaded the G.C.P.D. to fire you?
Phyllis: That's crazy.
Ronan: You want to know what's more crazy? I got suspended from the FBI, too.
Ronan: Yeah. The bottom line is, Victor confessing put one in the "Win" column for the D.A.
Phyllis: Paramount to an elected official.
Ronan: But there's, uh, just this little thing that motivates me called "Justice." Yeah.
Phyllis: Yeah, that's crazy, because you actually want to catch the person who committed the crime.
Ronan: I know. Its bananas.
Phyllis: It's insane.
Ronan: I know.
Ronan: (Scoffs) If I was closing in, Victor's confession would make sense. You know--the best defense is a good offense? But I was coming there to arrest Nikki.
Phyllis: So you think that Victor is trying to protect Nikki.
Ronan: I don't know. But I don't know them as a couple. Tell me about their relationship.
Phyllis: Uh, I don't know much about it. I mean, they get married. They get divorced. They marry other people. They stay together. They have a connection, I suppose.
Ronan: So then he would definitely do something like this for her. But the question is, did he do it?
Phyllis: And you're not gonna stop until you find out, right?
Ronan: You want to know the truth as much as I do.
Phyllis: Yeah, I do. I'm a journalist.
Ronan: A journalist and a detective teamed up together-- we can do amazing things.
Phyllis: More amazing than we've already done?
Ronan: No, but outside of this bedroom. Do you want to go rogue with me? Do you want to figure out who Diane's murderer is?
Avery: How'd it go with your dad?
Nick: Not like I thought. (Sighs)
Avery: Speak to your mom?
Nick: No one has heard from her.
Avery: You want to talk?
Nick: No, I think I'd rather go hit something, so I'm gonna go work on the punching bag for a little bit. It's a good way to relieve some tension. Want to come with me?
Avery: I just finished Pilates.
Nick: Oh, another good stress reliever. I like it.
Avery: Yeah, well, it didn't work.
Nick: Well, clearly the, uh, kiss I gave you earlier was just too much for you to handle.
Avery: I was not thinking about that. I ran into Sharon earlier. She said you two are having custody issues.
Nick: Yeah, we are.
Avery: And then she asked me to represent her.
Nick: That's awkward.
Avery: Yeah, especially since she wouldn't take no for an answer.
Nick: Sharon can be persistent.
Avery: Nick, I ran out of excuses, and I had to tell her the truth, about us.
Victor: You shouldn't have come back.
Sharon: We weren't done talking before.
Victor: (Sighs) Nothing else to say.
Sharon: Maybe not to Nicholas or Victoria because Nikki's their mother, but you can talk to me.
Victor: I can't change what's been done.
Sharon: What Nikki's done? Or what you've done?
Victor: I did the right thing, okay?
Sharon: Well, that's not surprising. But Nikki marrying Deacon? That is shocking. I mean, you didn't seem very shocked. You seemed more disappointed...
Victor: (Sighs heavily)
Sharon: And sad.
Victor: Nikki's very confused right now. She's overwhelmed. She's out of control.
Sharon: The question is, how long has she been out of control?
Victor: What are you getting at?
Sharon: I've been saying for a while I really think that you are covering for someone. It's Nikki, isn't it?
Deacon: So how'd Vic take the news?
Nikki: He thinks I married you because I'm an out-of-control drunk.
Deacon: Yeah, well, clearly. Hey, come on. I'm kidding, all right? I mean, if he even knew you at all, he'd know you did it for love. It's the love of your daughter, but, you know, you'll come around once you remember what a good guy I am, how much I care for you.
Nikki: Go to hell.
Deacon: I got something for you to prove to you how much I care for you. Take a look at that.
Nikki: Oh, my God. You-- (scoffs) You don't expect me to wear that.
Deacon: Nikki, you're my wife.
Deacon: And I expect you to look and act like it in every way.`
Victoria: (Sighs) Oh, wow. That was perfect.
Billy: (Laughs) Yeah, well, I burnt dinner, so maybe after a night like you had, you would burn--
Victoria: Mnh-mnh. No.
Victoria: No, I don't want to talk about my mom or my dad or anyone.
Billy: Works for me.
Victoria: I just want to talk about us.
Billy: Definitely works for me.
Victoria: And... since you took care of dinner...
Victoria: Dessert's on me.
Billy: Oh, I like this restaurant.
Avery: I hope I didn't upset you.
Nick: Why would I be upset?
Avery: Because you and Sharon are...
Nick: We are history. We're done. We have some children together and a past, and I don't care if she knows if we're together.
Avery: We're not together.
Nick: Oh, really? Then why'd you tell her we were?
Avery: Because I thought she should know about us, even if we aren't gonna be seeing each other anymore.
Nick: Is that what you want? For this to be over?
Avery: There's lots of reasons it should be. I'm working with your first ex to help your dad. Your second ex is my sister.
Nick: Sounds like a few obstacles.
Avery: Yeah, it is.
Nick: So you gonna let a few roadblocks get in the way of what you really want?
Avery: Who says this is what I really want?
Nick: You saying I'm not what you want?
Avery: I'm not saying anything.
Nick: Good choice.
Ronan: In or out?
Phyllis: I'm in.
Ronan: You're in?
Ronan: Yeah. You know, I've never been hotter to solve a crime than I am right now.
Phyllis: I'm gonna write a very, very interesting story.
Ronan: Yeah? Good. Because I couldn't stop now if I wanted to. But I don't.
Nikki: You stop right there.
Nikki: Don't come one step closer to me or that bed.
Deacon: Baby, you're my wife.
Nikki: In name only.
Deacon: You know, you're just pissed off because I had to convince you that this was a good idea.
Nikki: Convince? Convince? You mean blackmail.
Deacon: Oh, now come on, Honey. That is such an ugly word.
Nikki: Uh-huh, but accurate.
Deacon: I care for you. I never stopped.
Nikki: You know what? Let--let's just do this, okay? Let's not fool around with anything else. You have no interest in rekindling anything with me.
Deacon: Baby, what are you doin'?
Nikki: I know what it's all about, okay? So here. Here it is. There you go. How about that?
Deacon: What is that?
Nikki: Go out and buy yourself a new wardrobe, please.
Deacon: (Stammers) What do I have to do to convince you?
Nikki: And don't stop there-- a big plasma TV, a fancy car...
Deacon: I didn't marry you for your money. Come on!
Nikki: Whatever the hell you want!
Deacon: Are you done? (Scoffs) I didn't marry you for your money, Nikk.
Nikki: Well, that is unfortunate, because that's all you're gonna get. Take it all!
Sharon: I knew you didn't kill Diane. But you think Nikki did, and that's why you confessed.
Victor: I want you to go.
Sharon: Victor, I understand. I really do. You and Nikki-- you would do anything for her. But I'm not gonna let you do this. I can't.
Victor: This is none of your business, okay? Guard.
Sharon: I don't know how you can say that to me after the way you stood by me.
Victor: Please take me to the cell.
Sharon: I'm not going to just walk away and let you go to prison the rest of your life. What kind of friend would I be?
Victor: You want to be my friend? You'll leave me alone.
Sharon: (Whispers) No way.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Kyle: Mom's not here because Mr. Newman killed her.
Myrna: (Thinking) I try and be a good person and do all the right things, but lately, I've been having these terrible thoughts about Genevieve.
