Lauren: Okay, so the board isn't here to vote yet. You feel okay?
Michael: Huh? Uh... Victor does not want me to push Nick to be appointed as C.E.O. I'm afraid that he has some plan that involves... Adam taking over.
Lauren: Oh, please. Victor knows we've got math in our favor. Nick, Victoria, and I are gonna vote for Nicholas, and with seven board members, we only need one member as the swing vote to win. (Chuckles) And here comes "Mr. Swing" now. Tucker.
Lauren: It's so good to see you.
Tucker: Good to see you.
Jack: Well, aren't you looking spiffy for the big vote? Uh, the Newman board of directors is selecting a new C.E.O. today. Adam here is in the running.
Adam: Almost sounds like you want me to win, Jack, not your former stepson. Why is that?
Jack: Well, I'm not exactly waving the Adam flag, but I am in full support of economic growth and development.
Adam: As long as it benefits you and Jabot, right?
Jack: Especially then.
Adam: See you later, Jack.
Genevieve: That was interesting.
Jack: That arrogant S.O.B. has burned me more than once.
Genevieve: Aha. And you're willing to stick your hand back in the fire again?
Jack: Eh, what's a little singe, if I can manage to get Beauty of Nature in return?
Chloe: And I obviously need at least one tier to be red velvet.
Gloria: (Laughs) Got it.
Deacon: Excuse me, Gloria, may I speak with you for a second?
Gloria: Of course, you can, Deacon, but first, I'm gonna need you for more shifts this jingle-bell season, and that includes Chloe and Kevin's wedding reception tomorrow.
Deacon: Uh... Chloe, Deacon. Hi.
Deacon: Uh, no offense, but, uh, I'm gonna have to take a pass on that.
Gloria: (Laughing) That's funny.
Deacon: Yeah? If you think that's funny, you're gonna think this is absolutely hilarious. This is me quitting. Bye-bye.
Chloe: (Laughs) Okay, you don't understand. I have guests coming here tomorrow, and they need to be served red drinks.
Gloria: (With clenched teeth) And I have lots of ladies who come in here to look at your glutes.
Deacon: Well, the only person who's gonna be looking at my glutes is my new bride. She happens to need all of my love and attention right now.
Woman: You. Time to go.
Nikki: Oh, I'm so happy to see you.
Nikki: Oh, you didn't have to come.
Victoria: Of course we're gonna come.
Nikki: I know, but isn't the board meeting right now?
Nick: Don't worry about that. That can wait.
Nikki: (Sighs) Well, I-- well, I am sober, I'm alert, and I know exactly what I have to do.
Victor: Go home. You have spent enough time in prison.
Sharon: Is it worth it, protecting Nikki by doing this to yourself?
Gloria: Come on, Deacon. Two weeks' notice.
Gloria: One week.
Deacon: (Laughs) No. I can't do it, Gloria.
Gloria: Come on, come on.
Deacon: No, I can't.
Gloria: One lousy day.
Deacon: I'm sorry. I can't do it. Listen, Chloe, I hope that you and your new husband will be as happy as me and my new bride. Gloria, it's been a treat. Have a nice day, Ladies.
Gloria: Your glutes ain't that great.
Chloe: Overrated. All right, you know what? I-I'm just gonna go meet Kevin. I've gotta make sure he's, you know, doing a good job with the décor. I'll talk to you later. I got--
Gloria: Chloe, Chloe. Before you go... I said some pretty hurtful things about you when you and Kevin broke up, but you gotta understand, I was hurt, too. But now, you realize that you two are meant to be, and you're the woman of Kevin's dreams, and you do adore him. (Chuckles)
Chloe: Big adorer.
Gloria: Yeah. He's long overdue for some happiness, you know? Thank you, for loving my son the way he deserves to be loved.
Devon: All right. Hey, does this work for you?
Devon: This stuff?
Kevin: Yeah, it's perfect.
Daniel: Love it.
Angelina: Looks wicked dorky, and, uh, F.Y.I., we're losing valuable rehearsal time. I need to, uh... (Clears throat) Hone my instrument, you know.
Devon: Okay. Hey, I need to talk to you about the music for the ceremony. I went ahead and wrote you guys a little something.
Kevin: You did? That's awesome. Thanks.
Angelina: It's better than that. It's perfect. (Gasps) Devon will play, I'll sing. Oh, my God, best idea ever.
Lauren: Tucker, it is imperative that Nick be C.E.O. You know that Adam is a liability to this company.
Tucker: You can't tell me anything about Adam I don't already know.
Lauren: That's right, from Ashley. Good. Good. So you know exactly who and what Adam is. Have I told you how happy I am that you're on the board?
Tucker: Well, thanks. So am I.
Lauren: Oh, would you excuse me for a minute?
Lauren: Bob, Davis. Um, can I have a word?
Adam: Tucker. Just the man I was hoping to see. It occurred to me that somebody could have gotten the wrong idea from our recent conversation.
Tucker: Wrong idea, how?
Adam: Well, that I might have been proposing an illicit quid pro quo, special favors in return for your vote. It couldn't be further from the truth.
Tucker: Okay. No misunderstanding, then.
Adam: Glad to hear it. It seems my brother has priorities other than Newman business.
Victoria: We're still worried about you, Mom. I mean, how did things get so bad?
Nick: Did you really think Victoria had something to do with Diane's death?
Nikki: I'm so sorry for all the nonsense I said. I didn't mean any of it.
Nick: Mom, we're not looking for an apology.
Victoria: No, we're not. It's just, you know, we want to--we want to help you.
Nikki: And you can help me. You can help by trusting me. I-I know that's a lot to ask right now, but I am ready to make things better in my life. I am ready to move on, and I'm gonna do it right now.
Victoria: Okay. (Clears throat) We have faith in you, don't we?
Nikki: All right, well, then, go. Don't let Adam get that C.E.O. seat.
Nick: All right. You'll get something to eat?
Nikki: Yes, yes, yes, I will get something to eat.
Victoria: Mwah! That's the Mom I know.
Nikki: Good luck.
Victoria: All right, thank you.
Nick: Love you, Mom.
Nikki: Love you too, Sweetie.
Gloria: Here you go.
Nikki: Thank you.
Gloria: No, no, no, Nikki, thank you. Your husband just quit.
Nikki: Well, Gloria, I'm sure there are a number of talented bartenders who would love to work here.
Gloria: True, but at holiday time, it's inconvenient.
Nikki: Well, I understand I missed quite a lot of excitement in the last few months.
Gloria: (Chuckles) Well, according to that vicious article, you didn't miss Diane's murder. Not that I put any stock in that trash, and now that Victor's confessed--
Nikki: You know, it seems...
Gloria: Never saw that coming.
Nikki: Like everybody in town has been a suspect.
Gloria: But nobody from the Gloworm family, thank God. Not even your new husband. He had an alibi right off the bat, because he was here all night.
Nikki: Really? He was here?
Gloria: Well, at least you know this husband doesn't go around whacking attractive blondes. Enjoy.
Sharon: Does Nikki appreciate the sacrifices you've made for her? I mean, does she even know what you've done?
Victor: As I've said, my confession was the right thing to do.
Sharon: You know when I was locked up... you hired Avery for me. You convinced Nicholas to bring Faith to court so I could see her. That and your visits are what gave me hope. I'm not about to walk away now that our positions are switched.
Victor: But you see, there's a difference. You belong out there, and I belong in here.
Kevin: Sing? At my wedding?
Angelina: You're welcome.
Kevin: You can't. It--it's--it's too kind.
Angelina: Daddy would want me to do this for you, and we want to keep daddy happy, right? Come on. Let's rehearse. I got a great idea for a song. (Singing off-key) Oh, baby I saw you grindin' on the dance floor
Devon: Oh, wow.
Angelina: And you know that I want some more, more
Angelina: So kind.
Devon: Oh, yeah.
Kevin: Hit me with this. The corner, right into my temple, hard as you can. One blunt shot, it'll--
Daniel: It's not that bad. Maybe Chloe'll be cool with it.
Chloe: (Gasps) Ohh, it's so insanely cute!
Chloe: (Gasps) Look at--ohh.
Kevin: Oh, good, you like it. That's great.
Angelina: Runnin' with you don't leave me behind
Chloe: Why is "Mafia princess" screeching in the chapel?
Angelina: Take me away I'll be by your side
Chloe: Oh, no, no, no. She is not singing at the wedding, because you would never let that happen.
Angelina: Out of the light living your secrets... (Singing off-key) Runnin' with you out of the light living your secrets let's burn through the night
Devon: Angelina, Angelina. I want you to listen to the words that you're singing, okay? The song is about loving someone so much that you can't live without 'em. You know what that feels like?
Angelina: My father hired a full-time babysitter so that Carmine doesn't come anywhere near me. I get it.
Devon: Okay, then sing it like you mean it.
Angelina: (Singing off-key) Runnin' with you out of the light living your secrets let's burn through the night (singing tunefully) Riding with you don't leave me behind take me away I'll be by your side riding with you I'll dance in your fire I'll be all you desire
Devon: What was that?
Devon: Uh, my implant is either on the fritz, or you sounded really, really good.
Kevin: Uh, you guys should, uh, get back to the studio. I think Daniel wants to hear some more.
Daniel: Yes, absolutely. I-I do.
Angelina: Without you? Yeah, that'll happen.
Kevin: Uh, Devon and Daniel will be on "Keep Carmine away" duty, okay?
Angelina: Daddy's gonna be P.O.'d. (Chuckles) Good luck with that. Oh, and, uh, I need to know where we're going for the honeymoon. Like, you know, how many bikinis should I bring?
Devon: We'll figure that out.
Daniel: (Clears throat) We should go.
Devon: See you, guys.
Chloe: See you. Hmm?
Kevin: I wanted to ask you about the three wise men--
Chloe: Hey, excuse me. "Meadow soprano" is not singing at our wedding, and she is not coming on our honeymoon.
Kevin: A 4-bedroom house, Chloe. A playroom for Delia and the closet of your dreams, the one you've always--
Chloe: Oh, the closet better be just like the one that Big made for Carrie.
Kevin: It's gonna be bigger. It's gonna be even bigger. We just have to humor Angelo for a little bit longer, and we can take our honeymoon anytime.
Chloe: (Clicks lips) Oh, no, you didn't. Yeah, you did. (Sighs) You just did.
Kevin: I'm gonna fix this.
Chloe: Yeah. Yeah, you will.
Gloria: (Singing fanfare)
Angelo: Congrats on your upcoming nuptials.
Genevieve: How thoughtful. Thank you.
Gloria: Mm, well, love and romance are my specialty. I'm doing my son Kevin's wedding reception here tomorrow. Maybe we can do yours.
Angelo: Oh, she has an eye for elegance. Excuse me.
Gloria: (Chuckles) Have you set a date? I can always check my book.
Jack: No, we've set no date.
Gloria: All right, well, it's never too late to start on the menu.
Genevieve: Gee, thanks for the champagne.
Gloria: Mm-hmm. (Chuckles) Enjoy.
Genevieve: You love to torture her.
Jack: She has it coming.
Jack: She cost me Jabot.
Genevieve: But you got it back. You won.
Jack: I did, didn't I? And now things are only getting better. Jabot is gonna be bigger than ever.
Genevieve: We're back to the Newman meeting, aren't we?
Jack: Whoever wins the seat of C.E.O. has exactly what I need.
Genevieve: Huh, and here I thought I had that honor.
Sharon: Victor, you're innocent, and you're too stubborn to admit that this is all about protecting your family.
Victor: You know, there was a time when you were very angry with me. Just remember that feeling.
Sharon: I bet that you've had to spend more than one Christmas alone when you were a child.
Nikki: Thank you. Oh. Um, I'll wait outside.
Sharon: No, no, that's okay. I'll--I'll come back.
Victor: How are you?
Nikki: Oh, Victor. I'm so sorry to have put all of you through this, acting like a drunken fool.
Victor: You're ill.
Nikki: No. I am a lush, and... possibly more. I mean, maybe I'm the one who should be in here.
Victor: (Sighs) I don't want to discuss this with you any longer, all right?
Nikki: Victor, I was too drunk to remember what happened in the park, but that's over. I am determined to find out what happened to me that night.
Nick: Sorry we're late.
Adam: I honestly didn't think you'd make it.
Victoria: Well, Dad brought you back to Newman, but the last thing this company needs is you as C.E.O.
Michael: All righty. Since I'm not a board member, I will excuse myself, but Victor Newman asked that whomever is elected C.E.O... read that to the board.
Nick: Of course.
Lauren: All right, shall we get started? We have two candidates for C.E.O.-- Nicholas Newman and Adam Newman. We are a board of seven, so the C.E.O. will be selected by a majority vote of at least four. Now rather than get into a lengthy debate, I suggest we go straight to the vote.
Adam: I'll go first. Obviously, I'm voting for myself.
Bob: Adam Newman.
Lauren: Then that appears that the remainder is for Nicholas.
Adam: Why don't we just poll everyone, as a formality?
Lauren: Fine. I stand behind Nicholas.
Victoria: As do I.
Nick: I vote for myself.
Tucker: Well, looks like I'm the speed bump. I haven't made up my mind yet.
Nikki: And then I learned from Gloria that Deacon was at work at Gloworm all night that night that Diane was killed. He couldn't have seen anybody. He wasn't at the park. He couldn't see me. He couldn't see Victoria. He didn't know what was going on. He was working, and I believed every word of it. I was such an easy mark. I mean, there I was, just getting drunk in Genoa City. I should have been in rehab, learning how to be sober.
Victor: (Sighs) (Exhales slowly) None of this is your fault. I can see to it that Deacon is shipped out of here tonight.
Nikki: Thank you for offering that, Victor, but I want the pleasure of dealing with Deacon all by myself.
Genevieve: Summer's pretty much a classic.
Jack: Oh, we're gonna wait that long?
Genevieve: (Laughs) Okay. Spring?
Jack: How about January?
Genevieve: Wow. Someone's impatient.
Jack: Someone's in love.
Genevieve: Wow. Okay, January it is.
Jack: Oh, we got--
Jack: We got a deal, I got a phone call to make.
Genevieve: You do?
Jack: Hi, this is Jack Abbott. Fi-fine, everyone's doing great. I was hoping I could stop by the rectory to talk to someone about a January wedding.
Genevieve: Oh, my gosh.
Angelo: That's just what I like to hear-- love that can't wait, and may I say, with a lady like yourself, I can understand where this guy's coming from.
Genevieve: You're quite the charmer, aren't you?
Kevin: (Clears throat)
Angelo: Whoa, oh, oh, oh. Where's my girl?
Kevin: She's perfectly safe with Devon and Daniel.
Angelo: She should be perfectly safe with you.
Kevin: (Sighs) Okay, we need to talk about that--calmly, away from any sharp instruments.
Chloe: If she thinks that she's coming on my honeymoon--
Daniel: What? Oh, come on. Kevin's gonna figure it out. The guy would do anything for you. You know that you're-- you're like the center of his universe, right?
Chloe: Yeah, I know, I-I get it, I get it. Jeez.
Daniel: That's... not a bad thing.
Chloe: I know. I know. I love him. I love him, too. He's the... float to my boat... (Laughs) The cherry on my sundae, the cutesy and whatever.
Daniel: Okay, okay. I get it. I believe you. Fine. (Clears throat)
Chloe: You should. You should believe me.
Daniel: (Clicks tongue) Of course, you know there is... lowercase "Love," and then there's uppercase love.
Chloe: And you think that someone who's planning a wedding that has lowercase love is an idiot, don't you?
Daniel: No. No, I just-- I think that before you get up to that altar, you should be certain exactly what case yours is.
Nick: Well, maybe you aren't aware of my background in the company. I was C.O.O. for several years. I also served as C.E.O. with Victoria.
Victoria: You know, other than getting arrested repeatedly, all that Adam has done is tank a hedge fund and draw fire from the S.E.C.
Lauren: You will not find a more honorable businessman than Nicholas.
Tucker: What about your boy's?
Davis: Adam is all business. Victor brought him back to Newman for a reason.
Victoria: I mean, you can't seriously want Adam to represent this company to the public. He's morally bankrupt.
Bob: And Nick punched a guy at the Athletic Club yesterday.
Nick: (Laughs) Adam has been in charge before. We're still trying to recover from that.
Adam: Our family issues are no secret. Tucker, you're a businessman. You take risks, protect your interests, make money, as do I, as I did on Wall Street. So are we gonna worry about playing nice, or are we gonna run a corporation here?
Chloe: I know what I feel. I feel uppercase... l-o-v-e love. (Sighs)
Daniel: All right, good. Well, there you go, then. You know, Kevin's the best. I mean, I've never had a friend like him.
Chloe: Me, neither, and tomorrow, I'm gonna walk down that aisle, and I'm gonna capital-"L" him forever.
Angelina: (Singing off-key) Riding with you don't leave me behind take me away I'll be by your side riding with you out of the light living your secrets let's burn through the night riding with--
Devon: All right. Hey, what--what's, uh, what's going on with you? The--that mojo that you had back at the church-- you need to get that back.
Kevin: We're talking about my honeymoon, Angelo. How am I gonna keep Carmine away from Angelina if I'm... doing honeymoon things with my wife? So for her sake and mine, why don't you let me take my honeymoon without Angelina coming along for the ride?
Angelo: (Laughs) What do you think, I don't understand romance? Gah. The week is yours.
Kevin: (Sighs) Thank you.
Angelo: But that house just got smaller. Just three bedrooms, and maybe no fireplace.
Kevin: Well, a fireplace isn't gonna matter if my wife kills me.
Angelo: Yeah, she's a feisty one.
Kevin: Right. And since this is going so well...
Kevin: One more thing. Um... Angelina wants to sing at my wedding, and--
Angelo: Oh, why didn't you tell me that first? This is wonderful! I mean, is that what they're rehearsing over there? Come on, let's go get an earful.
Kevin: Yeah, let's go do that.
Angelo: (Laughs) Besides, you ain't on vacation yet, and if you let that no-good bum Carmine get near my baby, forget about the wedding. Angie'll be singin' at your funeral. (Laughing)
Sharon: Wait, you can't go yet. (Sighs) When I was locked up, some days... it was easier to pretend that life on the outside didn't exist. It was too painful to think about freedom. I told you not to come, and you did anyway. I told you I didn't need any help, and you wouldn't take no for an answer, and I survived because of you. If you think that I'm gonna walk away now, well, too bad. You don't scare me. I'm coming back. There's nothing you can do about it.
Victor: Okay. I'm listening.
Angelina: (Singing off-key) Riding with you out of the light living your secrets let's burn through the night riding with you...
Chloe: I can't think of a worse omen on my wedding day.
Angelina: (Gradually singing more tunefully) Take me away I'll be by your side
Devon: Hey, how is she--
Angelina: Riding with you
Devon: Hello, Kevin.
Angelina: Tearing down walls
Devon: Can you come here? Stand about right here.
Angelina: Gotta do it all
Angelina: Riding with you I'll dance through your fire I'll be all you desire
Devon: That's what I'm talkin' about.
Chloe: Weird, annoying. (Sighs)
Angelo: Hey, hang on a minute. The way she's lookin' at you, like--like you're her hero-- I mean, if you can make her sing like that--
Chloe: (Singsong voice) And then that means that he's my hero. (Normal voice) Okay, listen. She can sing at the wedding, but the honeymoon is off.
Jack: Thank you, Reverend. We'll be in touch. So... what do you think?
Genevieve: I think this is a lovely place to walk down the aisle with you.
Jack: This time next month, unless you want to do it right now.
Genevieve: (Sighs) You're such a good man. I'm not exactly sure how I managed to find you.
Jack: You didn't. As I recall, I found you, and I'm not always a good man.
Genevieve: Do I detect a little bit of pride in that statement?
Jack: I've always thought following the rules was a little overrated. There have been some people in my life who've had a hard time accepting my philosophy.
Genevieve: Not me. I'm a rule-breaker. Maybe that's why we found each other.
Tucker: Everyone here knows my reputation in business. Risk big, win big, and I gotta say, I've been hassled by the S.E.C. myself, so I can't be a hypocrite and hold that against anyone. This is not about who you want to have a beer with. This is about having the right leadership to advance Newman Enterprises, so the stockholders can make a pile of money. My vote goes to Adam Newman.
Lauren: Tucker, my God, no.
Victoria: This is a huge, huge mistake.
Adam: That appears to be three votes for my brother here and four votes for myself. That would be a majority vote. I am pleased to be your new C.E.O.
Nick: My father's blood created this company, and this vote is an insult to him.
Tucker: You know, I think this would be a good time to read that letter Michael brought from Victor.
Adam: Yes, he requested the new C.E.O. read it. I'd be happy to. (Tearing open envelope) "Colleagues, in so much as I cannot participate from jail, nor can I vote, I'm trusting that you all vote in the best interests of this company. Now it's time to stand united behind our new C.E.O. Regardless of your individual vote, I give my full faith and support to the Newman C.E.O., and I expect the same from each and every one of you. Signed, Victor Newman." Well, we all know that first and foremost, my father is a savvy businessman, as are at least four of us in this room here, and I promise that you will not regret the decision you made today.
Angelina: Did you love it? I loved it.
Kevin: I, um... uh, yeah, yeah. Uh, we can't wait for you to sing at the wedding.
Kevin: But the good news is, your father has decided to give me a vacation, so you don't have to come on our honeymoon.
Chloe: Hallelujah! (Laughs) Devon, that song is really fabulous, even in its extremely raw form.
Devon: Well, thank you.
Angelo: Let's hear it again.
Devon: Uh, we can't, actually. I have to close up shop. I forgot to drop food off at the church for the food drive.
Angelo: Well, Angie can, uh, serenade us on the way out, huh? There you go.
Angelo: Wh-where'd she go?
Angelina: (Sighs) Oh, Carmine, it's been so long, and, uh, I need your help.
Genevieve: It feels strange. (Laughs) My first Christmas with my husband-to-be.
Jack: Good strange?
Genevieve: Oh, wonderful strange.
(Cell phone alert chimes)
Jack: Ooh. This could be about the Newman vote.
Jack: Wow. Adam did it. He's C.E.O.
Genevieve: And you're pleased about that?
Jack: Whatever it takes to get what I want.
Lauren: Gentlemen? In the not-too-distant future, I think we're all gonna remember this day as the day it all started to go wrong.
Nick: What the hell were you thinking voting for Adam?
Victoria: You know he's gonna destroy this company.
Tucker: You know, it's funny, your father didn't say anything about that in his letter. He said, "Stand behind the C.E.O."
Nick: Oh, I'll do that. I'll be right there, making sure that Adam doesn't ruin everything.
Adam: (Exhales slowly) Can I buy you a coffee?
Sharon: I can get my own, thank you.
Adam: Well, uh, let me spring for a muffin to celebrate me being elected the new C.E.O. of Newman.
Sharon: You won? Congratulations. Now you have everything you want, officially.
Adam: "Everything"? No.
Victor: Tucker's was the deciding vote?
Michael: Nick's not pleased.
Victor: I'm sure he isn't. What he doesn't know is... it's all according to plan, okay?
Michael: At the risk of stating the obvious, whatever you're planning, it damn well better work.
Victor: Rest assured, it's already working, all right?
Deacon: Hey, how's the head doin'? I don't suppose you, uh, feel like hitting a meeting?
Nikki: You are a filthy liar. You weren't in the park the night Diane was killed. You don't know who was there or what happened.
Deacon: All right, Nikk, I'll bite. If I wasn't there, where was I?
Nikki: You were here. You were working. Gloria told em that, speaking of whom, you ought to start sucking up to get your old job back, because you're not gonna be leeching off of me. I can have this marriage annulled in a heartbeat. And considering this entire debacle is about money, exactly how much will it cost to get rid of you forever?
Deacon: Nikki, you don't get it. You can add as many zeros as you want, but all I want is you.
Nikki: Take the check, Deacon, 'cause that's all you're gonna get out of me. I'm taking my life back as of now.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Cane: Tag team action.
Lily: We've always been good partners. (Chuckles)
Kay: This is a Christmas surprise.
Jill: But your surprises have a tendency to backfire.
Harmony: Tonight is going to be just w-- wonderful.
