Provided By Suzanne
Proofread By Emma
Devon: All right, well, I'm out of here.
Tucker: No, no, no, hold on a second. Hold on, hold--listen. Devon, I really wish you'd reconsider my offer.
Devon: After you tricked me into meeting with you? I think I can market and distribute my music on my own, okay?
Tucker: Listen, I know you don't want a personal relationship with me. I hear that loud and clear, but you need my connections, my technology--
Devon: Oh, Lord. Please.
Tucker: Refusing that is counterproductive.
Devon: Don't lecture me on how to run my business.
Tucker: I'm not trying to lecture you on anything, Man. (Sighs) Look, I'm sorry. I mishandled this.
Devon: And now I'm going to miss my dad's wedding today. Was that a part of your plan, too?
Tucker: What? I didn't know the wedding was today.
Reverend Fulton: Sofia and Neil, as you pledge your vows and commit your lives to each other, we ask that you do so in all seriousness.
Cane: Lily Winters, will you please, will you please marry me? Hmm?
Lily: Um... (Laughs)
Lily: Yes, Cane Ashby, I will marry you.
Reverend Fulton: With a deep sense of joy, you are committing yourselves to a dynamic, growing relationship of trust...
Michael: (Sighs) Victor. Okay, now I've got a board meeting coming up. There are a few items I want to go over with you.
Victor: We'll get to that, okay? (Exhales slowly) Sharon just left. She had rather upsetting news.
Victor: About Nikki.
Michael: (Exhales sharply)
Victor: Um, you know that Nikki is my top priority, okay?
Michael: I know. I know. I understand you're concerned about her. I understand you're concerned she's exposed. I understand she's a suspect in a murder investigation.
Victor: None of that is as important as getting her sober again, okay?
Adam: Embarrassingly, unsurprisingly drunk again.
Nick: You shut your mouth and get the hell away from us.
Nick: And I know you're up to something at Newman, too.
Adam: Nicholas, you shouldn't let your mind wander. It's too small to be out on its own.
Nick: Okay, Mom--
Nick: Mom, hey, it's Nick.
Nick: All right, come on.
Nikki: What? What's goin' on?
Nick: We're gonna get you up--
Nick: Yep, and I'm gonna get you out to the ranch, okay?
Nikki: Ohh, its okay. I'm fine.
Nick: It'll be okay. Come on.
Nikki: I don't-- I don't live there. I don't live at the ranch anymore. I live here-- I live here. I live upstairs.
Nick: Okay, then let's-- let's get you up to your--
Nikki: I couldn't find my purse.
Nick: Yep, here's your purse. Thank you. Come on.
Nikki: Will you come with me?
Nikki: All right. You know, my new husband might be up there.
Nick: I know.
Nikki: Have you met him yet?
Nick: Yeah, I've met him.
Nikki: You have?
Deacon: Katherine, always a pleasure.
Kay: I can't say the same. What are you after?
Deacon: I come for the scones. They're fantastic, and they happen to be my wife's favorite.
Kay: Nikki would never willingly attach herself to you. What kind of scam are you running?
Deacon: You know, I gotta tell you, Katherine, I find that very insulting. I really do. You--you're Harmony, right?
Kay: This man is a master con artist.
Deacon: (Sighs) Come on.
Harmony: And I take it you think he's using your friend.
Kay: I'm certain of it. Whatever you're making on this deal, I'll double it, if you'll annul the marriage.
Deacon: Hey, look, I-I know you think that this is all some kind of a hoax, but I love Nikki very much.
Kay: Oh, he sounded sincere, didn't he?
Harmony: How come you don't believe him?
Kay: He and a Canadian barmaid conspired to wrench Nikki from Victor's life forever by spiking her drink and knocking her off the wagon.
Deacon: Okay, you know what? I apologized for that. I tried to make things right. Nikki's forgiven me.
Kay: She despises you. The only way she would marry you is... (Gasps) Oh, my god. She's drinking again, isn't she?
Nikki: (Slurred singing)
Home again, home again jiggity jig.
Nick: Okay, here we go.
Nikki: (Slurred speech) Now where's the vodka? I don't do gin.
Nick: Mom, no, no, no, no, no, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom.
Nick: How'd this happen? Why'd you start drinking again?
Nikki: Nicholas, go home.
Nick: No. Look, we're gonna-- we're gonna get you into a different rehab facility...
Nikki: No, no, no, no...
Nick: All right? One that's better for you.
Nikki: No, no, no, no. I'm not going back there.
Nick: You say that like you have a choice. You know that is the only way--
Nikki: Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. (Whispering) Can I tell you something?
Nikki: It's something that I haven't told anybody. (Normal volume) It's very important it's something that... will explain everything.
Tucker: Sofia told me they were gonna have the wedding, but I thought it would take a few days to put everything together. I'm sorry, Man, for holdin' you up.
Devon: And lying to me?
Tucker: I am interested in gettin' your product to the public. Now I shouldn't have-- have approached you anonymously, and I'm sorry for that, too.
Devon: Well, well, you know how lame "Sorry" gets after you keep pulling this crap over and over again?
Tucker: Well, you won't accept me as your father, yet you won't do business with me because we're related. Now that's a lose-lose situation, Devon. What am I supposed to do with that?
Devon: Live with the paradox.
Tucker: (Shifts feet) All right. (Sighs) If you don't want my help, that's fine. I'll drop it... if you'll consider gettin' to know me better.
Devon: I need to go, right now, all right?
Tucker: Hey, hey, you know what? I want to check on Sof. My driver's right outside. He'll get us there fast. How about we head over to the wedding together?
Devon: It's the least you could do for probably making me miss the ceremony, so sure, why not?
Tucker: Let's boogie.
Lily: (Mouthing words)
Sofia: I, Sofia...
(Cell phone record button beeps)
Sofia: Take thee, Neil, to be my wedded husband, to have and to hold from this day forward...
Lily: And I know that even on the worst day of my life, that you will be there to love me through it, and that someday, when we're old and gray... (Laughs) I will still have butterflies when I look at you.
Cane: I am marrying the love of my life. I am rich beyond compare. I stand here now before you knowing that my life is just about to begin, and I'm gonna share every moment with you.
Neil: To love, honor, and cherish, till death do us part, according to god's ordinance, and thereto I pledge you my love... and faithfulness.
Reverend Fulton: Bless, Lord, the giving of these rings, that Sofia and Neil may abide together in your peace.
Neil: Sofia, I give you this ring as a symbol of my love and faithfulness to you.
Lily: Did you engrave a kangaroo in my ring so I'd always be "Hoppy"?
Cane: (Laughs) That's one way to look at it. What does mine say? Aw. "We'll always have Paris."
Reverend Fulton: Now that Sofia and Neil have given themselves to each other, with the pledges they have exchanged, by the power vested in me as a minister of the gospel, according to the laws of this state, I now pronounce you man and wife. Neil, you may now kiss the bride.
Sofia: (Sighs) (Chuckles)
Reverend Fulton: Cane, you may kiss your bride.
Kay: Why do you keep doing this to Nikki?
Deacon: Look, she was already drinking when we got back together.
Harmony: And you still married her?
Deacon: My love for Nikki and her sobriety-- they're not mutually exclusive.
Kay: Did you propose to her while refilling her glass?
Deacon: Okay, Lady, let's get one thing straight-- I've been sober for a long time, and I intend on staying that way.
Harmony: Even though you're living with someone who's still drinking?
Deacon: (Sighs) Look, Harmony, I know it's tough, but, you know, I'm her husband now. I'm doing everything I can to get her to stop.
Kay: If I find out you're lying, I will crush you.
Deacon: I gotta get back to Nikki.
Harmony: I seen him at some meetings, and he seems harmless.
Kay: If only he were.
Harmony: Listen, Katherine, I gotta run, okay?
Kay: All right, we'll meet at the club later.
Harmony: Okay, all right, and I'll be sure to call you. Bye.
(Cell phone rings) (Ring)
Kay: Nicholas? I was just about to call you.
Nick: Mom needs you, Katherine. I found her falling down drunk at the club.
Kay: Ohh. (Sighs) Where are you now?
Nick: In the suite she's sharing with Deacon.
Kay: I'm on my way.
Michael: Getting Nikki back to rehab might prove problematic, particularly if she's under Deacon's influence.
Victor: (Sighs heavily) This breaks my heart. Marrying that man is reflective of her state of mind.
Michael: If the press keeps hammering away at the fact that she is a murder suspect, that will make matters worse. "Restless Style" has removed its post, but rumors gain a life of their own on the web.
Victor: We must throw everything we have at whoever's publishing that story. It cannot be that Nikki... has to be subjected to further scrutiny by either the police or the public.
Michael: What if we can't keep her quiet?
Victor: Then she'll jeopardize my plan to protect her.
Nikki: (Slurring speech) This can't wait. Come, Baby, sit down. Sit down.
Nikki: You and Victoria-- you mean everything to me. You know that.
Nick: What is it, Mom?
Nikki: Well... there's a... fact, and it--you're not-- you're not gonna want to believe it. You're--you're not gonna want to face it at all, but you need to promise me-- promise me you will accept it.
Nick: Okay, okay. What is this fact?
Nikki: I... I-I am-- I'm a drunk, and...
Nikki: I always have been a drunk.
Nick: I don't--I don't want to hear that from you.
Nikki: Nicholas, I-- it's true. Don't--don't do that. I-I'm a drunk and I will always be a drunk, and that's that.
Nick: Oh, Mom, no, no, no, no, no. Listen to me. You just need to get into a different rehab facility. I'm gonna take you to one.
Nikki: No, no, no. I'm not going back to that place. My God, I mean, I have tried. I have tried. It just doesn't work. It's not that I don't want it to. I just--it just doesn't work. (Sniffles)
Deacon: Hey, Nikk.
Nikki: Ohh, there's my darling husband.
Nick: What the hell is going on here?
Deacon: Well, since you seem to be in my suite, why don't you tell me?
Nick: You tell me what you did to her to put her in this condition.
Deacon: (Sighs) Yeah, it's kind of funny because, uh, when I left her, she was doing just fine. So what'd you do to upset her, Nick? Honey, you want some water? You want some coffee or something?
Nick: I'm taking my mom home. Don't even think about trying to stop me.
Deacon: Why would I think about trying to stop you, Nick? Your mother can do whatever she wants.
(Knock on door)
Deacon: Great. This ought to be good. Oh, spectacular.
Kay: Perhaps I should talk to Nikki... alone.
Nick: All right, I'll be downstairs.
Deacon: You know, uh, I don't really feel very comfortable with this.
Kay: You said you would do anything you can for Nikki. Prove it. Let her talk to her best friend.
Kay: It's just you and me. Tell me what's wrong.
Nikki: (Sighs shakily) (Sniffles)
Michael: I'll take care of Nikki. Count on it. What's next?
Michael: I have anticipated that you would like to block Adam from taking over Newman, so I have put a plan in motion where Nick and Lauren form a coalition to ensure that Nick is made C.E.O. in your absence.
Victor: It's an excellent plan, but I want exactly the opposite.
Michael: You want Adam in charge?
Victor: You bet.
Adam: Mr. Lemon. Good to see you.
Bob: We were cut off before, and you were gonna offer me a reward for my vote.
Adam: Well, once you see this presentation that I've put together, you and the other board members are going to realize why I'm the clear choice to run this company while my father serves time.
Lily: Oh. Uh, so, I just want to say, congratulations to you both. The ceremony was beautiful, and I think it can go on record as the most spontaneous wedding ever.
Cane: Yeah, I think it's, uh, time you guys almost renewed your vows, huh?
Sofia: (Laughs) Yeah.
Lily: Well, it's just amazing how things work out, right? Its like, who would have thought, a few months ago, that we'd all be standing here, ready to start a new life? It just shows you that anything is possible.
Cane: If you don't give up.
Lily: So here is to the future. May it be all you hope and more.
Neil: Let me get my glass over here.
Neil: Cheers. Mm-hmm.
Sofia: Reverend Fulton, thank you so much for squeezing us into your schedule.
Reverend Fulton: It's my pleasure.
Sofia: Ohh. With the church decorated for Christmas, everything is just so beautiful.
Neil: My boy.
Lily: You seem a little tense, Dad.
Neil: I do?
Neil: Well, I-- probably because it's my wedding day. What do you think?
Lily: You know, I just want to let you know that I really admire you and Sofia for creating a family unit for Moses.
Neil: I would do absolutely anything for this boy, and Sofia would, too.
Reverend Fulton: I've gotta get back to work. I just want to say, you've chosen a-- a beautiful bride, Neil.
Neil: Thanks. Thanks, Reverend Fulton. I appreciate that.
Reverend Fulton: Yeah, yeah.
Neil: Hey, you know what? I think, uh, I'm gonna-- I'm gonna join you, get some fresh air outside. Come on.
Reverend Fulton: Okay. Yeah. Beautiful baby.
Devon: Ohh. You guys married yet?
Lily: Oh, hi.
Tucker: Hey, I hear congratulations are in order.
Sofia: Ohh, thank you for coming.
Tucker: Oh, you know I'm always here for you.
Cane: Good to see you. Good to see you.
Sofia: I know you always are.
Devon: Um, where's Dad?
Cane: Uh, he's inside here. I'll just get him for you. Hey, uh... not there.
Neil: Hey, hey, Devon. (Clapping) Yo, D.
Neil: Harmony. Hi.
Harmony: Hey, what's up?
Neil: Oh, I, uh... hey, listen, I-- I owe you an apology, you know? Last time that I ran into you, I made some assumptions about you that I really shouldn't have--
Harmony: Listen, don't sweat it, okay? I just dropped by to see if Devon was here. I wanted to say hello.
Neil: Well, he's not here. He should be back soon, though.
Harmony: Look at you, lookin' all fancy and everythi-- oh, a flower in your jacket.
Harmony: Somebody gettin' married?
Neil: Yeah, I am. I mean, I, uh, I already did.
Harmony: Who is your bride?
Lily: Hey, Dad, it's me. Uh, we're just trying to find you, so give us a call, okay? Bye.
Sofia: He didn't answer?
Lily: No, but his ringer is probably off. You know, he's out with Reverend Fulton, probably oblivious... (Laughs) Talking to him, so...
Reverend Fulton: Neil isn't here?
Sofia: Well, we thought he was with you.
Reverend Fulton: We said our good-byes some time ago, but I'm sure he's here somewhere. (Chuckles)
Tucker: Sof, I know your mind must be racing right now, but don't get ahead of yourself, huh?
Sofia: My brand-new husband takes off without a word, and I'm not supposed to be worried?
Tucker: Shh. Listen. I've dealt with Neil for a while now in business, and personally, about Devon. He's a man of character. He wouldn't desert you.
Tucker: You want me to take you and Moses home?
Sofia: (Whispering) I would like that.
Tucker: (Whispers) Okay.
Nikki: Katherine, I am a drunk. What is the point in trying to change things?
Kay: That, Nikki, is pure, unadulterated bull. I know, because I've made that excuse many times myself, and more convincingly, I might add.
Nikki: Well, I'm not you, okay? I fail. I keep failing, so let's just admit that I can't beat this thing.
Kay: What's at the bottom of all of this? You've invested many years in program, going to meetings--
Nikki: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, and what has it gotten me?
Kay: (Scoffs) A family that adores you, self-respect, uh, looking at the world clearly instead of through a drunken haze.
Nikki: It doesn't matter. None of this matters, Katherine, anything I've done or, uh, any of my little accomplishments. Everything is...
Nikki: I just wish I could change things.
Kay: We can, together. Let's get you out of here and back into recovery.
Nick: You're destroying my mom's life.
Lily: And the way that my dad just walked out like that-- that's not even like him.
Cane: Yeah, I know. I didn't even know what to say to Sofia.
Lily: So if they have this baby together, they feel like they have to get married, and they never even planned on being with each other in the first place. It's like, what kind of chance do they have?
Cane: I don't know. Maybe it could work. I mean, you and I have had some insurmountable odds and we overcame them, huh?
Lily: Yeah, which most of those were your fault.
Cane: And the forgiving person that you are...
Lily: You know what? Don't push me, okay? Just don't go there. (Laughs)
Cane: And here we are, right? Together.
Cane: Hey, uh, what are you gonna do for Christmas? I mean, do you, um...
Lily: Want to spend it with you and the kids?
Lily: (Sighs) You know, I don't know. When I asked you before, you kind of blew me off, so... (Inhales sharply) I don't know. (Chuckles)
Cane: Maybe you should ask me again.
Lily: Do you want to--
Lily: (Laughs) Okay, good. So we can finally have a real Christmas with the twins, although after today's events, we might have to be there for my dad and Sofia.
Harmony: So did you marry that chick you introduced me to the other day?
Harmony: Yeah, your baby's mama.
Neil: Yeah, we did. Um, we put the whole thing together so last-minute, Devon couldn't make it. After the ceremony, I-I was feeling a little hot, so I went outside, grabbed some fresh air, and I thought I'd jump in the car, thinking I'd pick up Devon, bring him back to the church to have some cake with us. What? What is that look all about?
Harmony: I'm just imagining what it's gonna be like for your new baby. You know, growing up with parents who adore him and can provide for him, steady and--and dependable. Devon didn't have that until he found you and Drucilla.
Neil: We're blessed.
Harmony: So was I, but I made choices I regret. I don't think you should regret this one, Neil.
Neil: It just... feels--
Harmony: No, no, no. You are doing the right thing. Now that's a concept that's new to me, so I'm just trying to keep checking to make sure that I'm on the right track.
Neil: Every day.
Harmony: You know, sometimes every second, but I know if I keep aiming for doing right, then I'm almost sure it's gonna lead me to some good things, some good things for me, just like it always has for you.
Neil: Yeah, yeah, I hear you. I know. I've had more-- more than my share of good things.
Harmony: Well, listen, whatever you do, don't you screw up now. Otherwise, what hope do I have? You feel me?
Neil: Yeah, I feel you. Better get back to my, uh... my wife.
Tucker: Is "Little Mo" down for the count?
Sofia: (Sighs) Yeah. Hopefully, it'll be a short nap. Otherwise, it's gonna be a long night for me and Neil. Okay, you can say "I told you so" now. Getting married was not a good idea, obviously.
Tucker: No, listen, I just did what friends are supposed to do. I challenged you.
Sofia: Oh, well, you should have challenged me louder and longer. Maybe then I wouldn't have made a fool--
Tucker: Maybe then you might be raising Little Mo all by yourself. He'd see his dad every other weekend. Would that have been better?
Tucker: Sof, you did what was right for your kid. But what about you? What do you want for yourself?
Sofia: I don't even know anymore.
Tucker: No, don't give me that. You already told me you have feelings for Neil that go beyond this, uh, arrangement the two of you made.
Sofia: Yeah, that's true.
Tucker: But you haven't told him, have you?
Sofia: No. I just thought it would still be too much of a risk.
Tucker: I think the risk now is not saying anything. When he gets home, I want you to lay it all out there. I think it's the only way you stand a chance.
Nikki: If I try again, I'll fail again, and then I'm gonna disappoint everybody again, including you.
Kay: What's really going on here? It can't just be disappointment that you're not sober.
Nikki: Oh, God. The pseudo-analysis begins.
Kay: (Sighs) Just tell me what is making you so self-destructive.
Nikki: Katherine, I like to drink. It's that simple. That's it.
Kay: It-- those articles about you being a suspect-- is that what set you off? You don't have anything to do with Diane’s murder, do you?
Nikki: Leave me be, Katherine.
Kay: Tell me what you're hiding.
Nikki: Just leave me alone.
Kay: You know, Nikki, that you're only as sick as your secrets.
Nikki: Well, yes, I know, I know, I know all of that. It's crammed down my throat every minute, all that 12-step crap.
Kay: What secrets are you keeping? Tell me!
Nikki: Katherine, I...
Deacon: My feelings for your mother are genuine.
Nick: You're a user and a criminal.
Deacon: (Sighs) You know, I-- I just don't really think that's any way to talk to your stepfather. You know what I think the problem is? I think the problem is that maybe--maybe you'd be a little more comfortable calling me "Papa," huh? No?
Deacon: How about "Father"? I got it--"Daddy."
Deacon: Come on, huh? (Grunts) Oh!
Nikki: What the-- oh, Nicholas!
Nikki: What the--stop it! Stop it, Nicholas.
Nikki: Oh, my God. Please-- Nicholas. Please, somebody help! Stop it!
Neil: Sofia, I sincerely apologize for disappearing on you at the church like that. I-I went to find Devon.
Sofia: Devon was at the church.
Neil: (Sighs) Yeah, well, the truth is, I-I don't know. I just-- I had to get out of there.
Sofia: I see. So maybe we should just get an annulment.
Neil: I don't want that. Do you?
Sofia: Well, if you want out...
Neil: Sofia, do you?
Sofia: I just want to understand.
Neil: (Whispering) All right, um... (Sighs) (Normal voice) Sofia, you know what got to me today? We were standing in a church, pretending like we were the picture-perfect wedding couple, saying all the right words in front of God and family. The truth is, we aren't the picture-perfect couple.
Sofia: No. I-I mean, I agree, but if you want out--
Neil: No, listen to me. I want to change those words, those words that we said, that I said today at the church. May I?
Sofia: (Chuckles) Neil, what are you doing?
Neil: I, Neil, promise you, Sofia, that I'll make sure that Moses is loved and has love all around him. I vow to work with you to show our son what a real family can be. And most importantly, I will work with you every day to discover what this marriage can really be.
Neil: All right, um... (Claps hands) I'm gonna go check on Moses.
Sofia: (Sighs) (Sniffles)
Neil: Not your typical wedding night, huh?
Sofia: No. We're not typical, not in the least. (Sniffles)
Lily: Can you see this one in our living room?
Cane: Yeah. Yeah, we could, uh, sing carols and, uh, watch the kids hang ornaments.
Lily: Yeah, and open presents.
Cane: And after the kids go to bed... mm. Hmm?
Devon: (Sighs) Hello.
Tucker: Hey. Did you ever get a hold of Neil?
Devon: Uh, no, I didn't, uh, but I'm sure he's back home now. He must be, uh, really struggling.
Tucker: Yeah. They'll work it out.
Devon: Yeah. Hey, you know, Tucker, I have to give you some props.
Tucker: Props? For what?
Devon: For what you said to Sofia back at the church. It was a really nice mix of being there for a friend and not throwing Neil under a bus.
Tucker: Yeah, well, you know, Neil and I butted heads on occasion, but I respect him, especially for the way he's been there for you.
Devon: You know, I can never tell when you're being for real.
Tucker: Well, I'm tryin'. (Laughs) Listen, Devon, you know, I really would like to help you out with your--
Devon: Oh, no, look, I-- I'm not interested in you working with my company, all right?
Tucker: All right.
Devon: But... maybe you would let me pick your brain occasionally.
Tucker: Well, yeah. Yeah, anytime.
Deacon: You're out of your tree, you know? You ought to be arrested.
Nikki: Hey, enough, enough, enough! Deacon, enough. It's okay. Are you all right?
Deacon: Yeah, it just-- it hurts.
Nikki: Aw. I'm sorry.
Kay: I need your help.
Harmony: To do what?
Kay: Getting Nikki's sobriety back. (Sighs)
Nikki: I'll take you upstairs.
Deacon: Let's go.
Nikki: I'll take care of you.
Michael: What advantage is there in ceding control of Newman to Adam?
Victor: I have my reasons.
Adam: Thank you.
Adam: (Sighs) Michael.
Adam: Just wanted to let you know, it was a bit of a struggle to get the, uh, board members on my side, but, uh, Nicholas handed me the victory.
Michael: How did he do that?
Adam: By assaulting Deacon Sharpe in the middle of the club, so I did what you challenged me to do, Dad-- I proved myself. I guess whether I like it or not, I've got the Newman blood in me.
Victor: You just might.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Phyllis: Diane Jenkins.
Ronan: "A message from beyond the grave."
Nikki: Your father and I will protect you. You don't have to worry.
Jack: You deserve to grow old here, after what you did to Kyle and Billy.
