Episode # 10573 ~ Nikki confronts Victor, Jill & Cane join forces, and Lauren urges Michael to begin treatment.

Provided By Suzanne

Victor: Where'd you get this information?

Dylan: Doesn't matter where we got the information. We know it's you.

Nikki: Is this true? Have you been keeping this from me?

Victor: I never denied owning this land.

Avery: But you withheld information. No one asked, so you neglected to volunteer the facts.

Nikki: How many times have we discussed the fight that Dylan is going through to hang on to his business, and you never once thought to tell me that you were involved in --

Victor: I do not want to discuss this right now! Do you understand?

Nikki: How could you do this?!

Victor: How dare you talk to me like this now? When everything is revealed, you'll find out this is nothing personal.

Nikki: Well, your precious deal is about to drive my son out of business. How can that not be personal?

Victor: I am telling you it is not!

Lily: Did you know Victor was in on this?

Cane: No, it's the first I've heard about it.

Colin: It seems your good buddy decided that what you didn't know couldn't hurt you.

Nick: Mariah?

Mariah: Nick, um... I was just...

Nick: Wishing Cassie a happy birthday? That's why I'm here, too. Happy birthday, squirt. I hope these brighten up your day, just like you always did mine. [Sighs] Happy birthday to you, too.

Mariah: Thanks.

Nick: Do you have big plans?

Mariah: Well, I'm sure Cassie always had a big birthday party, lots of presents, and family around, but for me, it was just like any other day.

Nick: You didn't celebrate your birthday growing up?

Mariah: No. The only birthday we celebrated at the path was Ian. God knows Helen couldn't be bothered. Why mark the occasion when you got saddled with a kid you didn't even want?

Nick: I'm sorry.

Mariah: I don't need your pity or anybody else's.

Nick: It's not pity, Mariah. It's compassion. And you need to learn the difference between the two. I just wish some things worked out differently for you. That's all.

Mariah: Well, there are a lot worse things. Could have had a happy, loving family and watched it all fall apart.

Sharon: I appreciate you going to the cemetery with me earlier.

Noah: I just want to be there for you and Cassie.

Sharon: Even after all these years, it's still hard to think of her missing out on her birthday, her whole life ahead of her.

Noah: Yeah, I know.

Sharon: But I'm grateful for the moments I had with her, every moment. And I'm glad now that I'm getting to make up for lost time with Mariah. We'll celebrate her birthday when she gets home from work later.

Noah: Sounds good.

Sharon: We'll just do something simple. I know that she wouldn't be comfortable with anything elaborate. And because I have a job interview.

Noah: I didn't know you were looking for a job.

Sharon: It'll help in court, prove to the judge that I'm leading a stable life now, that I can hold down a job and be a good mom to my kids. I hate to think of all the moments I will miss with faith if nick gets his way.

Noah: The mediation was that bad?

Sharon: Worse. We're going to court.

Faith: Mommy and Daddy fight a lot. But I know they still love each other. And one of these days, they're gonna get married. Just like Summer said... all they need is a little push.

Kevin: So, does Mariah do that a lot? Take off in the middle of a shift?

Austin: Once in a while.

Summer: Oh, please. You are being way too nice. How many times have you had to cover for her?

Austin: She's been more reliable lately.

Kevin: Hmm, she seemed upset earlier. I wonder if something happened with Sharon.

Summer: Why do you bother worrying about her? Okay, Mariah cares about herself, and that's pretty much it.

Kevin: That's not true, Summer. She's not some cold-hearted person. You just don't understand her.

Summer: And you do? How well do you two know each other, exactly?

Michael: Dr. Jain is a very prolific writer. I've read a number of his articles on the benefits of the less aggressive approach. You know, his philosophy and mine, we are totally in sync.

Lauren: Good. Maybe now you can actually start treatment instead of just collecting opinions.

Michael: You sound like Kevin. He thinks I'm just trying to delay the inevitable by consulting doctors.

[Door opens]

Dr. Jain: Hello. I am Dr. Samir Jain.

Michael: Michael Baldwin. My wife, Lauren.

Lauren: How do you do?

Dr. Jain: Very well, thank you. So, I understand you are looking for a second opinion?

Michael: I would like to know the best way to beat this cancer without losing who I am along the way.

Noah: I thought that you wanted to share custody with Dad, like before.

Sharon: I did. I still do. But my lawyer thinks I need to fight back. If I don't take a strong stand, then there will be no fall-back position.

Noah: Yeah, that makes sense. For a lawyer, I guess.

Sharon: I'm really not comfortable with it, either, but David's the expert. If nick and I are both going for full custody, there's a better chance the judge will make us compromise.

Noah: I just hate that faith is the one caught in the middle of this. I remember what that feels like.

Sharon: I feel terrible about it. But what else can I do? I'm terrified of losing faith.

Faith: I made Mariah a birthday card!

Sharon: Oh, wow! How pretty.

Faith: I can't wait to give it to her. Oh, yeah. And can we make a batch of Cassie's special cookies like we did last year and share them with Mariah since it's her birthday, too?

Noah: That sounds great.

Sharon: I think Mariah would love that. Let me see if I have all the ingredients.

Faith: I'll call Daddy to come help.

Noah: Uh, you know what, kiddo? Um, I think it's just gonna be the three of us this year and Mariah.

Faith: It doesn't have to be.

Sharon: Faith.

Faith: Why can't Daddy come?

Sharon: We talked about this, sweetie.

Faith: Daddy promised you'd both still be there for important things. Isn't Cassie and Mariah's birthday important to you?

Nick: I'm not happy about having to go to trial. Sharon's lawyer is doing a... a great job trying to make me out to be a terrible father, which, in turn, makes things more contentious between Sharon and me, which isn't great for faith.

Mariah: I wonder what Cassie would have thought of all this.

Nick: Cassie hated it when we fought. She always felt like it was her job to resolve the conflict.

Sharon: I know how much you want everything to be okay. Unfortunately... your father and I...

Nick: We're having some problems.

Cassie: You mean between you? You're fighting?

Sharon: No, but we're, uh, disagreeing.

Cassie: About what? Maybe I can help you decide what's right.

Nick: Well, it's kind of one of those things where we're... both right and we're both wrong.

Cassie: If you know that, then why don't you both be half-wrong? Then you'll be even.

Nick: Cassie was a peacemaker. She was wise beyond her years.

Mariah: That's another area where she and I are different. Everybody's always asking me when I'm gonna grow up, start acting like an adult instead of a punk kid.

Nick: I don't think you ever had a chance to be a kid.

Mariah: More compassion?

Nick: Am I wrong?

Mariah: I had dreams like all the other kids. I always imagined that there was something better out there. Turns out, there was. Just... not for me.

Kevin: Mariah and I are friends. We both had tough childhoods, and we understand each other. And what you see as attitude is Mariah just putting up walls to protect herself. And this whole, new life of hers, it's, uh, it's really foreign to her, and it's a big adjustment.

Summer: Today is Cassie's birthday.

Austin: So it's Mariah's birthday. That's why she doesn't want to be here.

Kevin: [Sighs] I'm gonna go find her, make sure she's okay.

Austin: You know, Kevin made some good points.

Summer: You grew up without a dad, and you still managed to be a kind, decent person.

Austin: Well, the decent part's kind of up for debate. I'm on probation for --

Summer: You are a decent person who made a mistake. That's it.

Austin: Yeah, well, I think deep down, where it counts, Mariah's decent, too.

Summer: Why are you always defending her?

Austin: I'm not. Why are you always upset when her name comes up?

Summer: Because her name always seems to come up!

Austin: Okay. I've got work to do.

Nikki: You said that you came to this party to gather information, when all along, the truth is that you had a vested interest.

Victor: We'll discuss this later. You got that?

Nikki: I would apologize on Victor's behalf, but there's really no point. He has a long history of underhanded behavior, and that's not gonna end any time soon.

Victor: Let me just say this. You don't quite understand what's happening here.

Dylan: I understand that I'm losing my business.

Victor: Dylan, there are larger considerations than your coffeehouse. Just remember that.

Jill: Boy, it sounds like you have a mess on your hands.

Victor: Your ignorance is only surpassed by your lousy timing.

Dylan: [Sighs]

Jill: Victor. Listen to me. Your chancellor division is tanking. Come on. Isn't it time to spin it off before you drive Katherine's legacy into the ground?

Victor: It'll be a cold day in hell before I hand anything over to you. Just remember that. Have a good day.

Paul: So, how did you find out that Victor was behind the holding company?

Dylan: It was Kevin.

Paul: Kevin? I told him to keep it legal.

Dylan: Yeah, well, as far as I know, he did. He's the one who found the information about Gerolamo limited.

Paul: And that's the company that owns the land?

Dylan: Yes. And it turns out Gerolamo Emiliani is the patron saint of orphans.

Paul: And I'm the roman catholic.

Dylan: Yeah, the answer was right under our noses the whole time for anybody who's aware of Victor's history. Not that knowing any of this information is gonna save crimson lights, because obviously Victor doesn't care who he's hurting, and he has enough power to make sure that this deal happens.

Paul: Well, yeah. That explains why the mayor and the historical landmark commission refused to help.

Dylan: And I'm sure Joe's delighted to be working with such a well-connected seller. It'll give him an excuse to stick around town. And Avery.

Avery: So it looks like you and Victor had your stories straight. The deal's just business?

Joe: It is.

Avery: Yeah. And it also allows you to conveniently stick it to my fiancé. You know, Victor found the perfect partner.

Joe: Avery --

Avery: You're actually a lot alike. Do you know that? You both think you can have what you want for the right price. Well, you're wrong, Joe. And you will never get me back.

Joe: Look, I heard you. Now you hear me. Okay, this is a good deal. This will highly benefit Genoa city, and that's why Victor and I have been working on this so diligently.

Avery: No, it's a good deal for you and your rich cronies. Dylan and the other small-business owners, they'll have to close up shop!

Joe: Well, like you said, he's not walking away empty-handed. He still has you.

Cane: Why is Victor so adamant about selling this land when he knows how unpopular it's going to be?

Lily: When has Victor ever cared what people thought?

Cane: Well, he cares what Nikki thinks. Well, he should, at least that way he'll know how she'll react.

Colin: Maybe that's why he's kept it under wraps.

Lily: You know what? Half the town is up in arms outside. We should make sure the police can keep them away from the property.

Cane: Good idea. Come on.

Colin: [Sighs] I, uh, saw you over there sticking it to the old Vic.

Jill: Mm-hmm.

Colin: You enjoy yourself?

Jill: Yes. Immensely.

Colin: Am I to assume that, uh, the palace coup is a go?

Jill: I got to tell you, Victor is obviously in dire financial straits if he's willing to risk his marriage to get his hands on a little cash. This might be the perfect opportunity to make a play for Chancellor.

Colin: You know he's not gonna give it up without a fight.

Jill: Bring it on.

[Both chuckle]

Michael: What are your thoughts on treatment options?

Dr. Jain: Well, having gone over all of your scans, your blood work, and your biopsy report, my recommendation is that we pursue a course of radiation and hormone therapy.

Michael: That's what the other doctors said.

Dr. Jain: It is the standard of care in cases like yours.

Michael: I came here believing that you had a less aggressive treatment orientation. I read your articles.

Dr. Jain: In which I was addressing patients with slow-growing tumors at a much earlier stage of disease. Ultimately, my job is to best treat the patient in front of me, and you are in stage 3, Mr. Baldwin, which means the cancer is spreading. Conventional treatment would be best. And the sooner, the better.

Lauren: I'm so relieved to hear you say that, Doctor.

Michael: I'm not. My goal is to get through this treatment as the same person. As the... as the same man I am today. And that would not be possible given the side effects of hormone and radiation therapy.

Dr. Jain: You are welcome to get another opinion, but I believe that any reputable oncologist will tell you the same thing.

Michael: We'll see about that.

Lauren: What? Michael. Michael! Sorry.

Sharon: Wow. That's looking good.

[Door opens]

Faith: They smell so good. Daddy!

Nick: Hey, pumpkin. I ran into Mariah at the cemetery and offered her a ride home.

Faith: Do you want to help?

Nick: Um... you know what? I can't stay.

Faith: You have to. We're making birthday cookies.

Mariah: You guys didn't have to go to the trouble.

Faith: They're not hard. I help make them every year. They were Cassie's favorite.

Mariah: Well, then I didn't mean to interrupt the party. You guys have fun, okay?

Sharon: Wait. Mariah, the cookies are for you, too.

Mariah: Sharon, it's okay. You don't have to try to make me feel better.

Nick: It's your birthday, too.

Noah: We should all celebrate.

Faith: Stay, Daddy. Please.

Nick: Well, I guess I'm not going anywhere, especially since there's cookies involved!

[Both laugh]

Nick: How many can I eat? Honestly. Pick a number.

Faith: Um...

Austin: Um, what happened to all the customers?

Summer: I took care of their tabs and told them that they had to go because we are closing for a private party.

Austin: Nick didn't tell me about a private party. He booked something without...

Summer: Nope. This was all me. I thought we ought to go skiing.

Austin: Right now? Seriously?

Summer: Mm-hmm.

Austin: [Chuckles] Okay, what's this?

Summer: Well, when I go skiing, I usually spend most of my time at the lodge in front of the fire, so I thought we ought to do that...right here.

Austin: You brought a ski trip to me?

Summer: Mm-hmm. You know, we need to get some more time for ourselves. Alone time.

Austin: God, I love you.

Summer: I love you, too. Come here.

Nick: You got more flour on you than you do in the bowl, dude.

Noah: Compared to the mess that Cassie used to make, I'm an amateur.


Sharon: Okay, so your sister wasn't that great at baking, but she was very creative. She liked to draw and write poetry.

Nick: Do you remember the time she decided to redecorate Dad's birthday cake without telling anyone?

Noah: Now, that was hilarious. No, Mariah, you should hear the story. It's funny.

Faith: Me, too! What was so funny?

Sharon: Well, Cassie found a tube of colored icing and drew a horse on Victor's cake.

Noah: A big, purple horse between the roses and the curlicues and stuff.

Nick: Yeah. Dad loved horses so much, she thought it'd be a great idea. I think she was probably like 9 or 10?

Sharon: Yeah. That sounds right.

Noah: Grandpa was so surprised.

Sharon: We all were, especially Nikki. She spent a fortune on that cake.

Nick: Yeah. So, it's dessert time. Their cook rolls out the cart. The cake's there. It's lit, candles, everything, and Dad looks at it and goes, "well, look at that. Cassie drew a picture of Skippy."

Faith: Skippy?

Nick: [Laughs]

Faith: That's a weird name for a horse.

Noah: He wasn't the horse. Skippy was his dog.


Sharon: Oh, the poor thing. I remember how her face just fell.

[Knock on door]

Mariah: Uh, I'll get it.

Nick: How's this looking?

Faith: Good. I just want to eat it all. It smells so good.

Nick: We're getting close.

Faith: M&Ms and everything.

Mariah: Kevin.

Kevin: I came by to wish you happy birthday. I didn't get a chance to at underground since you left without saying anything.

Mariah: I, um, I had someplace to be.

Kevin: I can see that. Am I interrupting?

Mariah: No, no. Please come in.

Kevin: Hi, guys.

Noah: Hey, Kev.

Nick: Hey, what's up, man?

Faith: Hi!

Kevin: Making a cake?

Faith: Nope. Cookies for Cassie and Mariah's birthday.

Kevin: Oh.

Nick: You should try them. They're better than anything we ever used to make at Crimson Lights.

Kevin: Speaking of, are you ready to have your minds blown? So, you know that, uh, you know that whole land deal where those guys are gonna come in and tear down the whole warehouse district, including the coffeehouse?

Nick: Yeah. What about it?

Kevin: Well, I did some research online for Dylan. Guess who owns all that land? I'll give you one clue. It's your father.

Sharon: Victor?

Kevin: Uh-huh.

Nick: You are kidding me.

Kevin: Nope.

Noah: I believe it.

Sharon: You know what? So do I. It's typical Victor. Hurting people for profit. And I'm sure there's an extra added bonus in it for destroying a place that means something to me.

Nick: Do you know if my mom knows yet?

Kevin: If Nikki doesn't know yet, she will soon. Avery and Dylan were headed over to the club to confront him and Joe Clark.

Paul: All right. Thanks for the update.

Lily: Paul, the protestors outside are making it hard for our guests to come and go.

Cane: I tried to talk to your officer about crowd control, but he needs to hear from a higher-up.

Paul: All right. Um, I'm on it.

Cane: Thanks.

Lily: Excuse me.

Dylan: At least the protestors are up-front about their agenda. Unlike some people.

Avery: Okay, we should go. We did what we came to do, and now everybody knows the truth about this development deal.

Dylan: Too bad they don't know about the middle man here and how he set up a fake meeting to get you into his hotel room. You saw that she was happy and you tried to wreck that.

Joe: No, not me. You're the one that slept with my wife while she was still married to me. So that makes you the homewrecker.

Dylan: Not my fault you couldn't keep your wife satisfied, pal.

Avery: Dylan!

Paul: Hey, that's enough! That's enough. Both of you need to take a walk, preferably in the opposite direction. Let's go.

[Door opens]

[Door closes]

Victor: Can we talk about this?

Nikki: This company is your excuse for everything that you do, Victor. How many times have you put what's best for the company over what's best for our family?

Victor: I have built Newman enterprises for all of us.

Nikki: Yes, yes, I know. It's always about what you have built. What about what we've built together? Doesn't that mean anything to you?

Victor: What I have done, what I have built, I've done for all of us, for my family, okay?

Nikki: So, gaslighting Sharon, that was for us? And tricking Summer into giving you total control over Phyllis' care, that's for us?

Victor: Would you kindly look at the results? I saved our son from a disastrous marriage. Summer has her mother back. How's that?

Nikki: How is destroying an entire neighborhood good for anybody? It certainly isn't gonna be good for Dylan.

Victor: This is about more than Dylan's coffeehouse, for heaven's sake. Rebuilding the inner city is gonna create a lot of jobs, a lot of new businesses. Besides, it's good for Newman-chancellor and my children and my grandchildren.

Nikki: And to hell with my son, right?

Lauren: You have heard from three specialists and your urologist. They have all said the same thing, and, Michael, it's time to listen!

Michael: You know what? I'm gonna call the university's school of medicine, and I'm gonna see what they would recommend.

Lauren: Oh, for what?! What? What are you looking for? Are you looking for a doctor to tell you you're not sick? Because that is not going to happen! Honey, you have cancer.

Michael: Wow. You don't think I know that?

Lauren: Knowing it and accepting it are two very different things. And clearly you're not there yet.

Kevin: Well, Sharon and nick seem to be getting along.

Mariah: Yeah, that'll last for a few hours, then tomorrow they'll be back to battling.

Kevin: What is the truce about?

Mariah: I mentioned to nick that I hadn't celebrated my birthday before, and now he's trying his hardest to make it up to me.

Kevin: Everybody seems to be having a good time.

Mariah: Except me. I feel like I'm an outsider looking in at somebody else's life. This is what life was like for Cassie, the perfect child.

Kevin: Nobody's perfect, Mariah.

Mariah: It's just ironic, you know? The one bad judgment call Cassie made ended up killing her. Meanwhile, I've made a million mistakes, and I'm still here. It doesn't seem right.

Kevin: I'm glad you're here.

Mariah: Stop.

Kevin: I am. Hold on. If I hadn't met you, I would still be hiding my fan fiction addiction.

Mariah: [Laughs]

Kevin: And I don't know anyone else in the world who would appreciate this.

Mariah: What is this?

Kevin: It's a present.

Mariah: Well, duh.

Kevin: It's for your birthday.

Mariah: Yeah, I gathered that.

Kevin: Okay, well, the part you're not gathering is that you have to unwrap it to see what's inside it.

Mariah: [Chuckles] [Gasps] Oh, my gosh! Where did you get this?!

Kevin: Does that mean you like it?

Mariah: It's perfect.

Kevin: Good.

Austin: This is nice.

Summer: See? What'd I tell you? Skiing is pretty awesome.

Austin: [Chuckles] So, what else do you do on these trips?

Summer: Well, usually after a long day on the slopes, I'm pretty sore. But there's no hot tub here, so...

Austin: So a massage it is.

Summer: [Chuckles] Oh, no, no, no. You.

Austin: Me?

Summer: Mm-hmm. You.

Lily: You know, you're not making any friends in this town.

Joe: Well, it's just business.

Lily: Business? Really? That's why you and Dylan almost turned this place into a boxing ring?

Joe: You've been speaking with Paul.

Lily: Well, he's not happy with either of you.

Joe: Well, if you'd excuse me, I'm gonna pack up my presentation.

Lily: That's a good idea.

Cane: You okay?

Lily: Yeah, for now. Just waiting to see what other surprises Joe Clark has in store.

Cane: You know, when I asked him about the seller a few weeks back, he showed me a document with the name of the holding company on it. Gerolamo limited. I should have looked it up back then.

Lily: Would you have made the connection?

Cane: So, I just did a quick search on my phone. It turns out saint Gerolamo was the patron saint of orphans.

Colin: Clever.

Jill: Well, Victor better be doing some praying if he wants to hang on to chancellor. Katherine must be spinning in her grave at the way he's mishandled her life's work.

Cane: You know, it should be one of us who's running the company.

Colin: Or both of you.

Paul: Assault and battery is not the answer!

Avery: Normally I would agree with you, Paul, but in this case...

Dylan: As mad as I am at Joe, I'm more worried about Nikki. I mean, it's one thing for Victor to lie to us, but...

Paul: You know what, Dylan? Nikki knew exactly who he was when she married him the first time.

Dylan: I don't know how she's dealt with him all these years.

Paul: [Sighs]

Nikki: I just wanted to thank you again for not speaking to Victor about my drinking.

Paul: Yeah, well, I'm still not sure I'm doing the right thing.

Nikki: Hey, I have kept my promise. There has been no alcohol. Really the only reason that that happened is because I was facing so much stress last year.

Paul: And what happens the next time you face a stressful situation? It's gonna happen, Nikki. There will come a time when life throws something at you that you can't handle.

Paul: Well, Nikki's coping skills have not always been the best.

Victor: You're blowing this all out of proportion.

Nikki: Oh, do you think so?

Victor: Yes.

Nikki: That's funny. I think I'm having a perfectly normal reaction to finding out my husband has betrayed me.

Victor: Since when are you and I discussing Newman business?

Nikki: You thought you could get away with this because Dylan isn't your son. You don't give a damn about him. Just admit it. Is it too much to ask for you to be a little welcoming? I mean, I-I welcomed Abby into the family.

Victor: What the hell are you talking about? I'm not talking about destroying Dylan's business. He can relocate anywhere in this town. In fact, I'll give him the startup money.

Nikki: Please, you cannot throw money at it to make it better.

Victor: I'll discuss this with you when you have calmed down, all right? And then perhaps you'll realize that I'm simply trying to help!

[Door slams]

Faith: When can we eat the cookies?

Sharon: Well, we have to let the cookies cool.

Faith: They smell so good.

Sharon: Mm-hmm.

Nick: Okay. Looks like you, my man, are on K.P. Duty.

Noah: Why me?

Nick: 'Cause you're probably gonna eat the most cookies.

Noah: That's fair.

Kevin: I'll give you a hand.

Noah: Thanks.

Faith: Maybe I should help, too.

Nick: You know, I'm probably gonna have to guard those cookies, too.

Faith: [Laughing]

Sharon: I was hoping to wish you a happy birthday this morning, but you were sleeping and I didn't want to wake you. And then I went to the cemetery.

Mariah: I understand. It's a tradition.

Sharon: So are presents. Happy birthday.

Mariah: Wow. I, um... I didn't...

Sharon: Just open it.

Mariah: It's beautiful.

Sharon: Those are garnets. It's your and Cassie's birthstone.

Mariah: Is this also something that was meant for Cassie but because she's not here I get by default?

Sharon: No. Not at all.

Mariah: I'm not interested in Cassie's leftovers.

[Door closes]

Faith: Okay, Mariah! Make a wish!

Noah: Then we'll sing.

Nick: Where did Mariah go?

Sharon: She thought the necklace was for Cassie. I don't know where she got that idea. I just bought the necklace for Mariah last week.

Noah: Mariah gets defensive, Mom. You know how it is.

Sharon: Well, I just don't want her to think I'm using her to replace Cassie. I don't know what to do. Should I go after her?

Kevin: Just give her some time. You know, I'll track her down, make sure she's okay.

Nick: Yeah, I should go, too.

Faith: Bye, Daddy.

Sharon: Thanks for making this a special day for the kids.

Nick: Yeah. Mwah. We'll see you. See you, boy.

Sharon: Well, I should get ready for my interview.

Noah: Sure.

Faith: [Sighs] I'm glad Daddy stayed. It was fun.

Noah: Just as long as you know that making cookies doesn't mean that Mom and Dad are getting back together.

Faith: Are you leaving now, too?

[Cell phone rings]

Noah: Are you kidding me? Leave the cookies behind? No, I'm staying here and watching you and miss patsy while Mom goes to her interview. But I got to take this, so one second, okay? Hey, court. What's up?

Faith: Noah's right. Today was a start. But I need to do something so big, Mommy and Daddy will never be able to stay apart again.

Summer: I must look like a mess.

Austin: Hey. You look beautiful.

Summer: Hmm. You're biased.

Austin: Ah.

Summer: Mm-hmm. I'll be right back.

Austin: Okay.

[Footsteps approach]

Austin: We're closed for a private event.

Mariah: Lots of parties going on tonight, but none for me.

Austin: After you left, we realized it was your birthday. So happy bir--

Michael: You are way out of line.

Lauren: I don't think so.

Michael: I have accepted my diagnosis. I have cancer. I am a cancer victim. See? And now I am talking with doctors and I am discussing treatment options.

Lauren: That is the problem. You are discussing and not doing. Do you really think that your disease is just gonna stand still while you gather facts and hope to God this isn't real? I'm -- I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I should not have, uh...

Michael: What? Put it that way? You're right.

Lauren: You're scared and, uh... I'm really scared, too. But you are not alone in this.

Michael: Well, thank God for that.

Lauren: Who are you calling?

Michael: Dr. Jain. I'm making my first radiation appointment.

Avery: We should get back and thank everybody for showing up.

Dylan: Yeah, you're right. Thanks for your help, Paul.

Paul: No problem. Be careful out there, all right? [Sighs] [Sighs] Yeah, Nikki, it's me. Listen, um... I just wanted to make sure you're okay. I know this whole thing with, uh, Victor came as a shock and, uh, wanted to let you know that if you want to talk or you feel like having a drink, I just hope you call me first.

Nikki: You don't need alcohol to cope with your problems. Don't even think about touching that glass. It's not gonna help. It never helps. Just walk away. Just walk away. Damn it. [Sighs]

Colin: Despite your protests, I know you're keen to get back into the corporate world. Jill here speaks of nothing but chancellor industries. And besides, there's strength in numbers.

Jill: [Chuckles] Says the lone wolf.

Colin: Ever since we've been married, I can see the value in a strong partnership. If we're gonna get rid of Victor, we need to muster all the power we can.

Cane: "We"?

Colin: Well, you and Jill, of course.

Lily: And like I said, you both have my blessing.

Cane: Partners?

Jill: Partners.

Colin: Ah! Excellent!

Lily: [Laughs]

Jill: Maybe this is what Katherine wanted all along -- for us to realize that we needed each other as much as we needed chancellor.

Joe: The deal's still on?

Victor: Mm-hmm. That was never in question.

Joe: Good. Thought you might be getting cold feet.

Victor: I don't get cold feet, Mr. Clark.

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

Kevin: Huh.

Chelsea: Connor's toy car. He's been asking for it all morning. I have no idea where it went.

Sage: Hi.
