Episode # 10569 ~ The battle between Nick & Sharon gets nasty, while Sage turns the tables on Adam.

Provided By Suzanne

Phyllis: Billy. Becoming a father again really agrees with you. You look exceptionally dashing.

Billy: What do you want, Phyllis?

Phyllis: And you are very, very smart.

Billy: And busy, so...

Phyllis: Okay. Come on.

Billy: [Sighs] Okay. What's this all about?

Phyllis: I need some help.

Billy: Fine. Why'd you have to drag me in here to discuss business?

Phyllis: This has nothing to do with Jabot. This is about something far more treacherous.

Stitch: From the looks of that picture, you didn't have such a great holiday.

Kelly: [Chuckles] It wasn't so bad.

Stitch: GC buzz got it wrong? Phyllis Newman didn't get in your face?

Kelly: Oh, she did. And when she did, it was enlightening.

Stitch: Okay. What exactly did you learn from that?

Kelly: Jack still loves me.

Jack: What do you want, Adam?

Adam: Jack. You seem angry.

Jack: I'm not happy to see you, if that's what you're asking.

Adam: At least I knocked this time.

Jack: I don't like repeating myself, Adam.

Adam: It's, uh, Gabriel. Careful with that, Jack, please. It's important.

Jack: Why are you here, Gabriel?

Adam: Well, I'm, uh, here to talk about the new job you'll be offering me.

Mariah: What?

Noah: How's mom doing?

Mariah: Well, she's pretty shaky. She's tried on about 10 outfits.

Noah: Okay, well, whatever she ends up wearing, we have to be encouraging.

Mariah: Oh, my gosh. Thank God you are here to come up with such an effective strategy. I would have never thought of it on my own.

Noah: I just want to make sure we're on the same page.

Mariah: Who do you think has been encouraging her all morning?

Noah: No. No.

Mariah: What? What is that supposed to mean?

Noah: It's just -- it means that you have a funny way of making encouragement sound insulting.

Mariah: Okay, let me tell you something, Noah --

Noah: Oh, shh. Wow. Wow. Mom, you look -- yes.

Sharon: I do?

Mariah: Wait, I thought you weren't gonna wear that outfit again because it reminds you of nick.

Sharon: Should I change?

Noah: No.

Mariah: No.

Noah: No.

Mariah: No.

Sharon: Are you sure?

Noah: You look great, mom.

Sharon: Okay. I just need to make a good impression. This is a big meeting. It could all be decided today.

Avery: Hi. You're early.

Nick: [Sighs] Yeah, had to get out of the house.

Avery: Okay, well, we'll make good use of the me, then. Sit down and I'll brief you on what will happen today. So, you and Sharon will meet with the mediator.

Nick: Will you be in the room with us?

Avery: Yes, absolutely. And Sharon's attorney will be in there, as well, so if you want me to do most of the talking, I can. Nick.

Nick: Uh, will the mediator decided right away and just give me full custody of faith?

Avery: [Sighs] I think that she's gonna take the time to consider the entire situation. Are you all right?

Nick: Yeah, I'm fine. Fine. It's just a lot to think about.

Avery: Nick, you know how I feel about this. You need to be 100% certain that sole custody is what you want. Is it? Is it what you want?

Jack: There is no job.

Adam: Well, what you're not understanding is that you don't have a choice.

[Cell phone buzzes]

Jack: No, I do have a brain. I suggest you use yours. My hiring you at Jabot would not only be insane, it would be dangerous. If there's someplace you have to be, don't let me keep you.

Adam: No. Dangerous for who? For your brother?

Jack: For you, too. If Billy finds out who you really are --

Adam: Well, we're gonna make sure that doesn't happen.

Jack: It is bad enough I have kept from my brother that you are still alive.

Adam: Do you want your brother going to prison for attempted murder, Jack?

Jack: Consider the risks, Adam. If the two of you are working at Jabot, you will run into each other all the time -- in the hallway, in the elevator.

Adam: He'll be running into Gabriel Bingham in the hallway and the elevator.

Jack: There would be too many opportunities for you to slip, for him to find out who you really are.

Adam: Well, if that happens, Jack, you know what? I'll be prepared for it.

Jack: Prepared for my brother to want to kill you again?

Nick: I've been doing some soul searching.

Avery: About pursuing custody?

Nick: [Chuckles] You know, Avery, when I first found out what Sharon did -- keeping Summer from me -- I was so angry at Sharon. I just wanted to hurt her. I mean, within hours, I had decided to take faith.

Avery: So, you think you acted too quickly?

Nick: Do you think I'm doing the right thing?

Avery: [Sighs] Okay. What's making you ask this question?

Nick: [Sighs] Christmas. Faith was so happy. I mean, we were all together. We were getting along.

Avery: Were you happy?

Nick: There were moments.

Avery: Okay. What's best for faith here?

Nick: Honestly, I don't know anymore.

Avery: Well, you need to figure that out in 30 minutes, before the mediator gets here. I need you 100% sure.

Nick: I'm trying to get there, Avery. I really am. I'm trying to decide if going after full custody of faith is really what's best for her or if it's just because I'm angry at Sharon.

Avery: When you searched your soul, what did it tell you?

Noah: You and dad -- it's gonna be fine. It's gonna work out, okay? You guys -- you were getting along pretty well during Christmas.

Sharon: Uh, yeah, we were, but despite the holiday thaw, I'm sure your father is at Avery's office right now, being coached by her not to give an inch.

Mariah: Well, maybe nick's come to his senses. I mean, you look great. That's got to count for something, right?

Sharon: [Sighs] I really appreciate you two being here.

Mariah: It's no problem.

Sharon: You sure you don't mind watching your sister today?

Noah: Glad to do it.

Sharon: Okay, this is doubly hard on you, Noah. You're stuck between both your parents.

Noah: Not taking sides.

Sharon: I know, but I appreciate your support, and I'm sure your father feels the same way.

Noah: What did you tell faith?

Sharon: All your little sister knows is that your father and I are meeting to talk about our family today.

Mariah: Are you sure that that's all that she knows?

Sharon: I don't want her more upset than necessary. Faith! I'm leaving! Come say goodbye.

Faith: I hope you and daddy have a really good talk.

Sharon: Me, too. Have fun today.

Noah: Bye, mom.

Mariah: See you.

Sharon: Bye.

Faith: Bye.

Mariah: All right, squirt. What are you up for today?

Faith: Want to play a game?

Mariah: Ooh, I like the sound of that. Yeah?

Faith: I'll go get it.

Mariah: [Chuckles] You know, Sharon really depends on you.

Noah: I think she's actually been getting closer to you lately.

Mariah: What? No, everybody knows that you are the good, golden child. I'm just the one she got stuck with.

Noah: [Chuckles]

Mariah: What? What's so funny?

Noah: We're arguing about who mom likes best.

Mariah: See, we're not arguing, 'cause you're the favorite.

Noah: No, you are.

Mariah: No, you are.

Noah: No. You.

Mariah: You are. No, you.

Noah: Welcome to the family.

[Knock on door]

Mariah: One big happy family.

Courtney: Harding's on a warpath.

Kevin: Why is he mad at me this time?

Courtney: 'Cause he needed a computer check done first thing today. Why are you late?

Kevin: I spilled coffee on my shirt. I had to go home and change.

Courtney: Right. I've seen you walk around with mustard on your shirt for two days.

Kevin: Well, you can believe what you want to believe.

Courtney: [Chuckles] What's in the box?

[Keyboard clacking]

Billy: Look, I don't have time to guess what's going on with you, Phyllis, so if you have something that you'd like to ask me, then ask.

Phyllis: I want to know more about the clingy, conniving home wrecker you slept with.

Billy: Is that supposed to be funny?

Phyllis: Do you want me to clarify which clingy, conniving home wrecker?

Billy: Okay, I've got work to do, so not nice talking to you.

Phyllis: I'm sorry. I-I just didn't know how to approach this with you.

Billy: Well, not like that.

Phyllis: I could really use your help, Billy, and not just for my sake -- for your brother's. I am concerned about Kelly.

Billy: Yeah, of course you are. Because she's not clingy or conniving or a home wrecker, and she's got you running scared.

Phyllis: [Scoffs]

Billy: Oh, just relax, Phyllis. She's a nice girl who had a relationship with my brother while you were sick.

Phyllis: And she is not letting go of that relationship. She's doing things.

Billy: Phyllis, Jack chose you. He put his ring back on your finger. Why are you trying to stir up problems when you've already won?

Phyllis: I have complete faith in Jack and his commitment to me.

Billy: Great. Problem solved.

Phyllis: The problem is Kelly hasn't accepted that reality. I need to get a handle on her so I can avert a disaster.

Billy: [Chuckles] A disaster? Seriously?

Phyllis: Why am I the only one who's seeing what's going on here? She went from manipulating one Abbott brother to manipulating the other.

Billy: You keep thinking like that and you're gonna manipulate yourself into some real problems.

Jack: I am not going to take unnecessary risks that could harm my brother.

Adam: You think I'm bluffing, Jack? Right now, you think I won't walk right out that door, huh, straight into Paul Williams' office, tell him that Billy tried to kill me?

[Cell phone buzzes]

Jack: And what would be the point in that?

Adam: My life is the point, Jack. I want it back.

Jack: Billy wants you dead. And try to remember -- Billy figured out, on his own, you were the driver of the car that killed Delia. You think he won't figure this out? And when he does, is it worth it?

Adam: My wife and child? Is that worth it, hmm? The slim chance that I'll get to spend time with them again? Yeah.

[Cell phone buzzes]

Adam: Damn right it's worth it. I'm in the middle of a meeting. I have to call you back.

Sage: [Voice breaking] Gabriel, you need to come home.

Adam: What's going on?

Sage: [Sniffles] How quickly can you get here?

Adam: I can -- I can leave right now. I'm not changing my mind about this, Jack. The next time I see you, I expect to hear all about this, you know, fantastic job opportunity...

Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa. We're not done here. Where are you going?

Adam: ...You've got lined up for me. I've got to, uh, fulfill some of Gabriel Bingham's obligations.

Jack: Yeah, well, I have to fulfill some of my own.

Courtney: You know, I wasn't interrogating you.

Kevin: Well, it's the Harding effect. Anytime anybody in this room asks me a question, I automatically assume they're out to get me.

Courtney: Well, I'm not, but, um, I did have a good time with you the other night on New Year's Eve.

Kevin: What is it you'd like to ask me, Courtney?

Courtney: Nothing. I'm just trying to say that if you were late today 'cause you were out with Mariah last night, I'd be totally down to cover for you.

Kevin: Mariah and I are not dating.

Courtney: Why not?

Kevin: Lots of reasons. She's coming off of a pretty terrible year. The timing alone makes it impossible.

Courtney: You know, Kev, falling in love has nothing to do with timing.

Stitch: So, Jack's not with Phyllis anymore?

Kelly: Mm, it hasn't quite come to that.

Stitch: But it's headed that way?

Kelly: Ben, Jack is only sticking with Phyllis out of loyalty. I mean, the poor man -- he's a prisoner of his conscience. He can't allow himself to abandon Phyllis after everything she's been through... despite how horrible she's become.

Stitch: Wow. Jack told you all that?

Kelly: Well, he didn't have to.

Stitch: Then, Kell, I mean, [Chuckles] What makes you think Jack still loves you?

Kelly: Because I looked him in the eye and dared him to deny his feelings for me, and he couldn't do it.

Stitch: Do you think maybe he just didn't want to hurt your feelings?

Kelly: No, it's more than that, Ben.

Stitch: If Jack is still engaged to Phyllis, you might be setting yourself up for more pain.

Kelly: You know, things worked out pretty sweet for you, Ben. Why not for me? Why can't you just be happy for me? For once?

Avery: Even though I'm no fan of Sharon's, avoiding a custody battle is best for everyone.

Nick: You really think so?

Avery: Yeah. You know how this goes, nick. I'm gonna try my best to keep a custody fight out of the news, but there's no guarantee that we can shield faith from the ugliness that's gonna come out.

Nick: [Sighs] Yeah. Well, I really appreciate your honesty and your friendship.

Avery: Sharon. Your attorney hasn't arrived yet.

Sharon: Yeah. I realize that. Um...I just came a bit early. I was hoping for a private moment with nick before things got underway.

Nick: Yeah. I'll hear what Sharon has to say. Then I have a few things I'd like to say myself.

Sage: [Sniffles] The doctor said there's nothing more they can do. [Crying]

Adam: Um...how long?

Sage: She probably won't last through the day. [Sniffles] [Crying] She's so dear to me, you know? I just hope that the end is easy for her.

Adam: Yeah. Yeah, me, too. Uh...what about you? What are you gonna do without Constance in your life?

Sage: I don't know.

Adam: You probably ushered the new year in with her, didn't you, whether she was awake or not?

Sage: You think I'm pathetic, don't you?

Adam: No. No, I don't.

Sage: Okay, well, you don't need to worry about me, Gabriel. I have plans.

Billy: Get this straight -- Kelly never manipulated me.

Phyllis: Okay. So you're playing the noble man and defending the other woman. What I am saying is that some men can't tell when a woman's working him.

Billy: Speaking from experience?

Phyllis: All right, let me fill you in on what you might not have heard about New Year's Eve. Kelly needed an opportunity to get her hooks back into Jack on the most romantic night of the year. And guess what?

Billy: Mm?

Phyllis: My car mysteriously ran out of gas when I had just filled the tank.

Jack: Are you seriously suggesting Kelly sabotaged your car?

Sharon: I really appreciate this.

Nick: I haven't done anything.

Sharon: You're listening. The holidays were wonderful. We made a good team.

Nick: I don't want this to turn into something where we're constantly at each other's throats.

Sharon: Me either.

Nick: I really think avoiding court altogether would be best.

Sharon: That would be perfect. Are we saying the same thing?

Nick: I've had a lot of time to think about this. And I'm willing to compromise. I don't want this to turn into something nasty or prolonged.

Sharon: Oh, nick. Um, thank you.

Summer: We figured we would stop by and visit faith while dad and Sharon were trying to hash things out.

Austin: Yeah, but, uh, if you guys have plans, we could --

Noah: No, no, no. Take your jackets off. Stay.

Summer: Okay.

Noah: Yeah, you just missed our mom.

Austin: Yeah, we know.

Summer: Yeah. I didn't really feel like getting into it with Sharon, so Austin and I just waited out by the stables until we saw her drive off.

Mariah: Guess you didn't count on me being here.

[Knock on door]

Courtney: Hello?

Noah: Courtney?

Courtney: Oh, it's a crowd in here. [Chuckles]

Noah: What are you doing here?

Courtney: Thought I'd come help you keep faith's spirits up.

Austin: Where is faith?

Noah: Oh, she went upstairs to get a game. It's gonna be a pretty intense board game.

Courtney: [Chuckles] I'm down for that. Mariah, is everything okay with Kevin?

Mariah: Yeah, I guess so. Why?

Courtney: He was just acting a little off today.

Noah: Think he's breaking the law, again?

Courtney: That's not exactly what I meant.

Mariah: I didn't know Kevin had been arrested. For what?

Noah: Breaking and entering, burglary, some other things, I think.

Courtney: But he turned his life around. He's definitely paid for his crimes.

Summer: Looks like you and Kevin have a lot in common, Mariah.

Mariah: See, that's exactly why I like Plato sphere. He's a realist.

Kevin: A realist, huh? How's this for reality? Real live mistletoe hanging over your head. What are you gonna do about it?

Mariah: Not what you're hoping.

Kevin: Why? Are you afraid to kiss me?

Mariah: No. I'm just not easily manipulated into a kiss by a guy holding a glorified piece of parsley over his head. [Chuckles]

Kevin: The timing wasn't right, but love pays no attention to the clock... or the fire-breathing gnomes and mutant unicorns exploding all around you.

Kelly: I'm just saying I deserve to be happy.

Stitch: Great. That's what I want for you, too.

Kelly: I know you do. My love life's just a touchy subject lately.

Stitch: Look, I-I'm just a little worried about you.

Kelly: Why?

Stitch: You seem...wound a little bit tight about all of this.

Kelly: Ben, you and I haven't actually spent quality time with each other in years. So how would you possibly know how wound or unwound I get?

Stitch: Give me some credit, Kelly. I can tell.

Kelly: Don't worry, okay? I have everything under control. I just have to be patient, okay? Like you were.

Stitch: Patient in the anticipation of what, exactly?

Kelly: For justice to prevail.

Billy: Your fiancée has been subjecting me to her delusional accusations.

Phyllis: I'm delusional? The woman showed up in the same dress.

Billy: [Gasps] The horror.

Jack: It was a coincidence, nothing more.

Phyllis: The woman is out to get me, Jack.

Jack: Okay, I asked Kelly, on New Year's Eve, to stop trashing you. I'm gonna ask the same of you with her.

Phyllis: So, Kelly was trashing me on New Year's Eve.

Jack: [Sighs]

Phyllis: Didn't you say she wouldn't listen to you when you tried to tell her we were committed to each other?

Jack: That was an emotional, defensive reaction. It wasn't part of some master plan.

Phyllis: I'm sure Billy can shed some light on this.

Billy: Me? How?

Phyllis: Yeah, well, I'm sure you know about Kelly's life story. You must have heard about it in those grief-counseling meetings.

Billy: Oh.

Phyllis: What did she have to say about herself?

Billy: [Sighs]

Sage: Constance. [Sniffles] Gabriel's here.

Gabriel: Grandmother. Welcome to the hereafter. I can't wait to be with you again.

Constance: The light. Wait.

Sage: Constance.

Adam: Grandmother. Grandmother, I love you.

Constance: Gabriel.

Adam: Yeah. Yeah, I'm right here. I'm right here.

Constance: You are not my grandson.

Summer: It says I need to pick a career.

Austin: Well, this game is paralleling life right now.

Summer: Yea choosing a real-life profession were as easy as picking a card.]]

Austin: Oh, you're an amazing wife. You'll be amazing at whatever..

Noah: I could a use card, too, in that direction, myself.

Faith: Go on.

Summer: All right.

Faith: What does it say?

Summer: Well, maybe the city zoo is hiring, 'cause looks I scored zoo keeper.


Austin: You'd actually be great at that.

Faith: Ew. [Chuckling] It's your turn.

Noah: Yay.

[Wheel clicking]

Noah: All right. Win 200 life points.

Faith: You'll be sitting in a tree k-I-s-s-I-n-G.

Noah: Oh, I've been doing it wrong this whole time. [Chuckles]

Noah: Let's go find a tree.


Faith: I'm thirsty. Do you want a juice box?

Faith: Yeah.

Austin: Oh, I'll grab it.

Summer: Thank you

Courtney: I could eat.

Noah: I'll hook you up. Mom's always got a full fridge.

Courtney: I'll come with.

Faith: It'd be cool to be a..

Summer: Yeah, I just don't think it's the job for me.

Faith: Maybe you should just keep picking cards till you find the

Summer: [Chuckles] Yeah, that's one way to do it. But sometimes, you can't just sit back and wait for things to sometimes things need a little push.

Austin: Hey, Summer.

Summer: I'll be right back.

Faith: I know somebody who needs a big push.

David: Whoa, whoa. What's he been saying? In this an ambush?

Sharon: No. No, David. I got here early, and then --

Avery: Mediator's here.

David: Great. Hi. How are you?

Avery: You know the parties, including Mr. Sherman.

David: I am ms. Newman's attorney.

Be aware -- both parties currently control the child's welfare. If mediation fails, a judge will determine faith's future.

David: Agreed.

Nick: I am offering to pull back on my demand for sole custody, and I'm willing to meet Sharon halfway.

Avery: I think that's a very generous offer from my client.

David: On the contrary, Mr. Newman is resorting to desperate measures. Clearly, ms. Newman is the one who deserves sole custody here.

Sharon: No. David.

David: She has provided more than enough evidence against Mr. Newman and his family to win her daughter in court.

Sharon: David, nick and I talked, and --

Nick: Sole custody? Are you kidding me?! Sharon is the one who's responsible for this.

Adam: Grandmother, of course I'm your grandson.

Sage: Constance, this is Gabriel. You know that.

Constance: Gabriel is waiting. I saw him.

Adam: You saw me where?

Constance: Who are you, really?

Adam: I'm Gabriel.

Constance: No.

Sage: Constance, save your strength.

Constance: You know.

Sage: [Crying] I know that Gabriel loves you. And after the accident, you needed him to survive. I believe that with all of my heart. Constance? [Crying]

Adam: She's gone.

Billy: I would never repeat something that Kelly said during our grief-support meetings.

Phyllis: So she is hiding something.

Billy: Oh... [Chuckles]

Jack: Phyllis.

Phyllis: Well, how can you keep her secrets? Even a shrink has a duty to break confidentiality when their patient's being lethal.

Jack: Okay. That's enough. Billy is right.

Phyllis: You're siding with him on this?

Jack: Kelly is not a threat to anyone.

Phyllis: You think you know everything there is to know about that --

Jack: She's a good person, Phyllis.

Phyllis: Why do you keep elevating her to sainthood? She slept with Billy and broke up his marriage.

Billy: What happened between me and Kelly is as much my fault as it is hers. So just...leave me out of this.

Jack: Are you quite finished with this nonsense?

Phyllis: Not by a long shot.

Sharon: I thought that we had turned a corner, nick.

Nick: I had, but then your attorney blindsided me.

Sharon: Well, I didn't get a - --

Nick: You had me thinking we were talking about joint custody, but then you and your lawyer want to take my daughter away from me.

Sharon: Well, nick, you know, I had to have a plan just trying to stay in faith's life. You were coming at me guns-a-blazin'. And you know what? I may have a mental illness, but I'm treating it. There are many ways that you are a less stable than I am.

Perhaps we should --

Nick: You name one bad thing about me as a parent, just one.

Sharon: Okay, okay. Faith ran away on your watch. And not just down the street. She ran all the way to the warehouse district. And then there's your nightclub.

Nick: There is nothing illegal going on in my nightclub.

Sharon: I'm talking about your hours, nick. The hours that keep you from being home for dinner or tucking faith in. And worst of all, faith has repeatedly said that she hates her daddy.

Mariah: What is this? A dagger?

Kevin: Yes. That is a dagger you see before you.

Mariah: What are you doing with it?

Kevin: The question is what are you doing with it?

Mariah: Why are you carrying around this thing? What, are you elk hunting?

Kevin: Do I look like an elk hunter?

Mariah: Well, I don't know. That's the only reasonable explanation I can come up with for someone carrying around a thing like that.

Kevin: It's nothing. Forget about it.

Mariah: It's something. It's a weapon.

Kevin: [Sighs] All right. You want to know the truth? It's some really serious police work -- undercover stuff.

Mariah: You're not an undercover cop.

Kevin: What do you need, Mariah?

Mariah: I came by because I found out that your past isn't so squeaky clean. And not that I'm judging, I just wanted you to know that if you're in trouble, you can talk to me.

Kevin: Why? So you can make fun of me?

Mariah: No. I mean, I can't guarantee that I wouldn't make fun of you, but I wanted you to know that you could talk to me if you were in trouble.

Kevin: Why do you think I'm in trouble?

Mariah: You're carrying around a foot-long knife. I mean, it looks like the dagger from that Plato sphere story, but... oh, my gosh. [Chuckles] That's what this is. "Kingdom beyond" memorabilia.

Kevin: I may have gotten it from a guy at that fan event a few weeks ago.

Mariah: Why didn't you tell me? I totally would have understood.

Kevin: I kind of like that you didn't know. It made me...mysterious.

Mariah: It made you weird. I was worried about you. I thought you were in trouble or something.

Kevin: Well, I have to admit, I kind of like that, too. Well, the last time you were here, you and I were looking for a bunny.

Mariah: [Chuckles]

Kevin: This gives me a little bit of an edge. It adds an element of danger to my image.

Mariah: Yeah, it's not like I was turned on by your dark side.

Kevin: Yes, you were.

Mariah: No. I was... I was worried about you.

Kevin: Really? You were worried about me?

Mariah: Yes.

Kevin: Wow. That's even better.

Mariah: Well, now I am gonna make fun of you.

[Both laugh]

Kevin: I'll make fun of you right back.

Mariah: [Laughs]

Stitch: Call me if you need to talk.

Kelly: I won't need to.

Billy: Stitch.

Stitch: Billy.

Billy: I, uh -- I spoke with Victoria, but is Katie --

Stitch: No, no, no. Yeah. She's still doing great. You know, slept through the entire night. No more fever or reflux.

Billy: Good. All-night house call, huh?

Stitch: I'll see you around.

Billy: Yeah. Hey. I think we should talk.

Sage: I really do hope that, now, Constance is with Gabriel. But at the same time... I would like to believe that she didn't realize that she'd outlived her grandson.

Adam: Come on. Her last look was one of acceptance, not of accusation, Sage.

Sage: I hope you're right about that.

Adam: It was really important to her that we have a copy of this will. She, uh, loved her grandson even more than I thought.

Sage: [Sniffles]

Sage: Oh, yes. Gabriel was everything to her, especially these last few years. She didn't want any hospital wings or monuments named after her. She just -- she just wanted to make Gabriel happy.

Adam: Yeah. Well, what about you, though? I mean, you dedicated your life to helping him, and he left you with a-a pittance here.

Sage: Keep looking. I'm in there. As a matter of fact... I get half the inheritance.

Avery: What Ms. Newman is saying is very misleading. What you describe as faith's relationship with her father boils down to what any parent could experience on a typical day -- a child who resents not getting her way. While you, Sharon -- you are truly guilty of a despicable crime.

Sharon: A crime?

Avery: Perpetrated on nick and his daughter Summer.

Sharon: I wasn't on my medication.

David: No charges were filed. It's a moot point.

Nick: Moot? Summer suffered because of what Sharon did. Jack suffered, I suffered, everyone suffered, Sharon.

David: Nevertheless, what Sharon did was --

Nick: It was a crime. Now, I know it was made under mental duress, and you tried to tell me the truth, but that's when the medication was working and Sharon was lucid and in control. But you never did tell me the truth, Sharon. Why is that?

Sharon: Because I loved you.

Nick: It wasn't love. It was self-preservation. You ripped Summer's life apart, and then you never did anything to try and fix it. And that's why we're here today -- because I will not allow that to happen again.

David: Okay, okay. The fact remains that none of this --

Nick: And the reason faith hates me right now and doesn't hate her mommy is because I've done everything I can to keep my little girl from finding out what Sharon did. I have taken the brunt of faith's anger because I didn't want her to know that her mother hurt her big sister.

Sharon: Okay. Clearly this isn't going to work and nick and I can't be in the same room together without hurting each other.

Nick: On that, we agree. Mediation is not gonna work.

I'm sorry to hear that. I wish you luck in court.

David: Thank you.

Avery: You and your client can show yourselves out.

Avery: Nick, I am so sorry.

Nick: What does this mean for faith?

Avery: The mediator will go and tell the judge the outcome today, and we prepare for a trial.

Sharon: You went on the attack, and you wouldn't stop.

David: Look, no matter what your ex-husband led you to believe, that is not a man who is willing to compromise.

Sharon: No, but he was. Before you got here, nick was --

David: Do you want to lose your little girl?

Sharon: No.

Austin: Well, you wiped the board with us, Courtney.

Summer: Yeah, getting the wedding ring and a million happy life points -- pretty impressive.

Courtney: Yeah. Maybe next time we can play a little tamer of a game, though, like cut-throat poker.

Summer: Okay, did you pick up on the weird vibe between my best friend and my brother every time marriage comes up?

Austin: Yeah, but I don't think we should butt in to their business.

Summer: I just feel bad that it's turned into a thing for them, especially since I've racked up over a million happy life points being married to you.

Austin: Aww. [Chuckles] [Smooches]

Billy: I heard about your blowout with Phyllis.

Kelly: Oh, from Jack?

Billy: No, from Phyllis. My future sister-in-law can be, uh, territorial.

Kelly: I got the up-close experience of Phyllis in full-on bitch mode.

Billy: [Chuckles] Well, then you understand.

Kelly: I honestly don't know how Jack puts up with it.

Billy: Hey, uh, um, look, I just -- I want to talk to you as a friend, here.

Kelly: Okay.

Billy: If you're still thinking that something could happen with Jack...I think you should forget about it.

Kelly: Did you talk to Jack about me?

Billy: No, no. This is me speaking from experience. It was just really hard for me to move on and let go from Victoria, but... [Sighs] I finally did it, and I think you need to make that leap, too.

Kelly: Billy, I can tell you with 100% certainty that I have let go of Jack...just as much as you've let go of Victoria.

Billy: Right. Well, I hope this is a great year for you and that you find happiness.

Kelly: I expect to.

Phyllis: You want to believe good things about Kelly, and I get that. But that woman is playing games.

Jack: How do you know that?

Phyllis: Because I've played them myself.

Jack: Okay, this is what you're telling me -- on New Year's Eve, a night Kelly is in charge of the biggest social event in Genoa city, she was busy emptying your gas tank. Do you know how absurd this conspiracy theory of yours sounds?

Phyllis: Jack, you better start taking this seriously, because I saw the look behind Kelly's eyes. Hell hath no fury --

Jack: Oh, she is not a woman scorned. She knows I want what is best for her.

Phyllis: There is no way she's through with you or either of us. She will pull something else.

Jack: You're wrong.

Phyllis: Fine. Refuse to see the signs or heed the warnings. I will find a way to prove it.

Adam: You get half of the inheritance? Okay, what are you trying to do, blackmail me here?

Sage: No.

Adam: [Chuckles] If I don't share the wealth, you're gonna tell everybody that Gabriel Bingham is Adam Newman? Is that the sick game you're playing?

Sage: I'm not blackmailing you. It's in the fine print. We share the fortune. What's yours is mine. The choice has been made for you. I'm your wife.

Next on "The Young and the Restless"...

Dylan: Somebody's got to be in charge. We just need to get a name. We should start with your ex-husband.

Joe: Thank you for a memorable New Year's Eve.

Abby: Uh, New Year's Eve?

Victoria: You want me to draw information out of Ben? Do not even go there. No.
