Episode # 10602 ~ Paul questions Christine's hostility towards Phyllis; Kevin & Mariah get an invitation.

Provided By Suzanne

Phyllis: Come on! I'm supposed to be free now! You can't keep me in here like I don't exist!

Jack: Phyllis, listen to me. I can't help you. You're where you need to be right now.

Phyllis: No, that's not true, honey. That's not! Jack?

[Knock on door]

Phyllis: Jack, don't walk away. Please don't leave me!

Kelly: [Clicking tongue] Let him go. There's nothing he can do for you. This will fix you right up.

Phyllis: [Gasps]

Victor: It's all right. It's just a nightmare.

Phyllis: You get locked up in a mental institution, things get a little jumbled up.

Victor: Yeah. I know. Was a long time ago, but I remember. I know how you feel.

Phyllis: That's right. You do.

Victor: Everyone else on the outside thinking you're nuts when you know you're not. Don't know who to turn to. You're here with me now, and you're safe, okay?

Jack: So then I find her at the ranch.

Summer: Grandma and grandpa's house? What is she doing there?

Jack: Yeah, why, indeed. And why would they want her there? Well, why would Victor want her there? He's the one that's doing all this.

Summer: Well, he's always wanted my mom to get better, you know, for my sake.

Jack: It makes no sense for Phyllis to live at the ranch.

Summer: Look, I'm sorry. I should not have yelled at you the day that mom went into Fairview, but I wasn't wrong about what I said. Mom probably doesn't trust you right now.

Jack: It was Fairview or jail. A psychological evaluation was the only way to keep Phyllis from being charged. You don't still blame me, do you?

Summer: No, I don't, but you and I both know how mom thinks. She's not gonna just forget that this ever happened.

Jack: No. No one will. But we have to get Phyllis out of the ranch. I know you love your grandfather, but her living there is not a good idea.

Summer: Okay, so then where? What? Your house? Where Kelly used to live? Okay, maybe it's better that mom stays away.

Jack: I will work for as long as it takes to win Phyllis back. I will give her the love and support she needs. Will Victor do that?

Summer: Well, if she feels like the ranch is where she's supposed to be...

Jack: Victor moved her into the ranch for a reason, and it wasn't out of the goodness of his heart. Look, I know Fairview is a frightening and lonely place. But being in Victor's orbit is just plain dangerous.

Christine: The psychiatrist's report on Phyllis.

Avery: DA's office must not be very busy if you can deliver these things personally.

Christine: Enjoy the read. I'll see you and Phyllis in court.

[Door closes]

Billy: All right, little man. So, you think this is gonna work? We got pre-Valentine's Day hearts and flowers with an assist from you -- the cute factor. Yeah. This always gets the ladies. Yeah. Yeah. [Laughs]

[Knock on door]

Adam: Chelsea. Hey. How are you? Come by to check out the placement? Um, the furniture placement?

Chelsea: Actually, I was, um, I was hoping you were free tonight.

Adam: Hoping I was free tonight? Yeah, no, I am. Absolutely. What do you have in mind?

Chelsea: How does, uh, dinner sound?

Adam: Sounds perfect.

Adam: So, uh, dinner. Yeah, no, that sounds great. Where?

Chelsea: Well, the where is easy. More importantly, do you think we can get Sage on board?

Adam: Well, there is that.

Chelsea: Well, yeah. I mean, that -- that is the whole point of the dinner.

Adam: Right, because my wife's not a big fan of me right now.

Chelsea: You guys just haven't had time to celebrate your marriage, you know? But once you have a big glass of wine in your hand and you -- you make a toast about how the two of you fell in love...

Adam: Then we'll fall in love all over again.

Chelsea: Yes.

Adam: Yeah.

Chelsea: Love is love. It's always there, regardless of certain things sometimes get in the way. So, what do you say? Do you want to tell me to mind my own business or do you want to give it a shot?

Adam: I think you might be on to something, actually. No, that -- that sounds great. I'll -- I'll get Sage on board.

Chelsea: Perfect. Okay. Well, it's kind of last-minute, so I thought I would just whip us all up something over at my place?

Adam: All the way over there? That's kind of far. I don't know if we can make it that far.

Chelsea: [Laughs] You might need your passport.

Adam: [Laughs]

Chelsea: But just come over whenever. We'll be there. And, um, it'll be fun. I promise.

Adam: No, I'm sure -- I'm sure it will be.

Chelsea: Okay.

Adam: Thank you.

Chelsea: You're very welcome. See you soon.

[Door closes]

Sage: [Humming] Subtle. Really subtle. You're just standing in the doorway, waiting for her to come out.

Adam: No, no, I'm not. Listen, your fake snit last night really paid off. She thinks you're really mad at me.

Sage: That wasn't a fake fight. That was real.

Adam: [Chuckles] Okay, well, real, fake -- it doesn't matter, okay? She's worried about our love. So, uh, put something on that's a little more festive, will you? We're going to dinner at the neighbors' tonight. It'll be fun. She promised.

Chelsea: No one? No one at all to welcome me home?

Billy: Make way. Cupid...

Chelsea: [Gasps]

Billy: ...Is coming in for a landing.

Chelsea: [Laughs] You are a lunatic! [Gasps]

Billy: Possibly. But I'm, uh, I'm loopy with love. I'm alluring with affection.

Chelsea: Alluring? We're alluring, huh?

Billy: Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. Look at the cute kid, huh?

Chelsea: Oh, my God.

Billy: Look at you.

Chelsea: Yes, how did he talk you into this, huh? How?

Billy: This was his idea. And now he wants to flirt with the babysitter while you and I get out of here.

Chelsea: Oh.

Billy: That is exactly the reaction I was going for. See, Connor and I, we -- we love the unenthused "oh."

Chelsea: I love cupid, and I love you. But, um, I just made dinner plans with Gabriel.

Billy: [Chuckles]

Kevin: Look who got off work early.

Mariah: Um, me? No. Because I'm still working. These limes aren't gonna cut themselves.

Kevin: But I'm not, which means yes, your brand-new roommate is off the clock.

Mariah: My roommate, who likes to put chocolate milk in his cereal.

Kevin: It's milk, it's cereal, it's chocolate. What part of that doesn't make sense? Meanwhile, my roommate brushes her teeth at least six times a day.

Mariah: You know, I may have grown up in a cult with no moral compass, but I believe in dental hygiene.

Kevin: Hmm. What is that?

Mariah: Fancy.

Kevin: Well, open it.

Mariah: It's a Valentine's Day invitation for a party.

Kevin: Who's it from?

Mariah: No idea.

Kevin: What? Is it signed "your secret admirer"?

Mariah: People in this town are so corny.

Kevin: I wonder who sent it.

Jack: Avery, I got your message. What's so urgent?

Avery: Jack, okay, we knew this was a slim possibility. We can and we will deal with it.

Jack: What is "it"? What has happened?

Avery: Phyllis' psych evaluation is in, and the doctor has found her mentally competent to stand trial.

Jack: She doesn't remember a single aspect of poisoning Kelly. Not the planning, not the execution. That is not a woman who should be held accountable for her actions.

Avery: I know. Well, there is more to the report, Jack. The doctor finds Phyllis lucid, clever, and calculating, exceedingly so, fully aware of her surroundings, her actions, and repercussions. The decisiveness of this assessment, Jack, it's forceful.

Jack: How forceful?

Avery: This report alone could convict Phyllis.

Victor: And did you speak to the woman I mentioned, uh, Kelly Andrews?

Dr. Barrett: She provided substantial insight into the situation. Phyllis Newman is sane.

Victor: Well, that's very good news. Thank you, Dr. Barrett.

Phyllis: Dr. Barrett? You son of a -- you wanted me to trust you?

Victor: What are you upset about?

Phyllis: What am I upset about? Talking to Dr. Barrett behind my back? What are you doing? You asking them to come and get me?

Victor: Slow down. I'm on your side. I may be the only one, all right?

Phyllis: When are they coming with the sedatives and the straitjackets? Is that what's gonna happen next, Victor?

Victor: No one is gonna come to get you and to take you anywhere. Jack Abbott may think you're unbalanced. I don't. And Dr. Barrett doesn't. You're safe, and you're mentally sound, and you're innocent, all right?.

Sage: I'm sure Billy will love you showing up with those for Chelsea.

Adam: These aren't for Chelsea. They're for you.

Sage: Putting it on a little thick there, don't you think?

Adam: They're not from me. I didn't get these.

Sage: From nick. Hmm. Just making sure I'm okay.

Adam: Really? Because of what?

Sage: I had a few drinks at his club.

Adam: You had a few drinks with the owner, and now he's buying you flowers? Exactly how drunk did you get, Sage? And you're supposed to be married to me, okay? Quit sucking up to my brother.

Sage: Okay, let's just get this straight. This right here what we have is a business relationship that will end eventually. And when it does, I might want a real relationship with my real inheritance.

Adam: With nick?

Sage: I didn't say that.

Adam: Okay, well, good luck with that, because he and Sharon, they're gonna get back together at least a half a dozen times before you're even available. It'll be nick and Sharon till the end of time, even if he is punishing her right now.

Sage: And Chelsea's gonna leave Billy for Gabriel? Yeah, good luck with that one.

Adam: We'll get our second chance.

Sage: Mm-hmm. Well, she invited you over to dinner to save your marriage. I'm sure she totally wants you.

Adam: No, she wants me to be happy, okay? That's called chemistry. Perhaps you've heard of it. [Snapping fingers] That's -- that's love percolating, you know what I mean? That's love just waiting to happen.

Sage: Waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting!

Adam: She's not over Adam, and here I stand, okay? So, it will be Chelsea and Connor and me, and we'll be a family again.

Billy: Gee, a, uh, romantic dinner with four with semi-strangers.

Chelsea: Is it weird? Too weird?

Billy: Look, I was just hoping that you and I could have an early Valentine's Day celebration, just the two of us. 'Cause on the actual day, I just don't think that I'm gonna be party central, you know?

Chelsea: Yeah. Delia's birthday.

Billy: Yeah.

Chelsea: Okay, you know what? I will just, um, call them and reschedule. It's fine. You know, it's just getting married should be a happy time.

Billy: Well, who got married? Those two?

Chelsea: Yeah. They eloped. Although I can tell things are a bit dicey.

Billy: Married just out of the blue?

Chelsea: I think, you know, after Gabriel's grandma passed away, they don't really have much family left, so that's probably why they didn't have a big party or reception or whatever.

Billy: Who just up and gets married in the middle of the night?

Chelsea: People that are in love.

Billy: And now can't stand each other?

Chelsea: Like I said, dicey. But a dinner party's not gonna fix that. And you had plans for us. So I will just cancel and I'll tell --

Billy: You know what? No. No, it's, uh, it's okay. Um, we'll just show them what real love looks like. And who knows? Maybe I'll be a role model for Gabe.

Christine: Hi.

Paul: Hi! Whoa. Hello.

Christine: Hi.

Paul: Well, I'll take it. But, um, what's the occasion?

Christine: Phyllis is finally going to be served some justice. This is a world that I am happy to bring a baby into.

Paul: Oh, I see. The psych report came in?

Christine: And it says she is sane and calculating and fit to stand trial. And when I bring her up on that stand, I am going to break her. I am going to break her into tiny, little pieces, and I'm gonna put those pieces --

Paul: Just stop it right now!

Jack: I had Phyllis admitted to Fairview, and what did I accomplish? We have no legal defense, she doesn't trust me, she doesn't trust you, and now Victor's sucking her into his universe. What kind of doctor is this? When we left the hospital, Phyllis was spinning out -- a total emotional breakdown. He didn't think that was real? It was real, and it was brutal.

Avery: Yes, but we know Phyllis, Jack. We can see past the facade. She probably told this doctor everything he wanted to hear.

Jack: But to what end? So she could stand trial. That doesn't make sense.

Avery: [Sighs]

Jack: No, this doctor is a quack. Or he's been compromised. Maybe he owes Christine a favor.

Avery: No, Christine wants Phyllis to suffer, but she wants to win this thing fair and square so she can savor the Victory.

Jack: Well, somebody paid this doctor off. I'm sure if we look at the situation closely, we'll find Victor's fingerprints all over it.

Phyllis: I'm innocent?

Victor: Yeah.

Phyllis: As in poor, crazy Phyllis can't be held accountable, or that I am completely sane and didn't poison Kelly?

Victor: The latter, okay? I knew it before. But now Dr. Barrett confirmed it.

Phyllis: He said I was sane?

Victor: Yes.

Phyllis: It just sounds strange to say that. Why don't you tell me why you care so much?

Victor: Because the drugs that Dr. Cutler used to get you out of your coma had not been tested that much before. But you turned out to be perfectly sane and healthy, and now you're safe.

Phyllis: It must be a relief for you. Now you're off the hook.

Victor: Of course it's a relief for me. You're mentally sound, okay? Sit down.

Phyllis: But they all think that I still tried to kill that liar.

Victor: But who cares what everyone thinks? They're fools. I mean, Kelly Andrews, she played the cops, she played the D.A., She played Jack Abbott.

Phyllis: Victor, it wasn't me. It was never me. But, you see, she's convinced everybody that it was.

Victor: People believe what they want to believe.

Phyllis: Kelly won. And now there is no way to prove that it was all her.

Victor: She did not win, all right? And there are ways to prove that.

Chelsea: I'm so glad you guys had the time to come over tonight.

Adam: Yeah, no, thank you for inviting us. We, uh, we appreciate it, right, sweetheart?

Billy: Yeah, as long as you're cool with a fifth wheel at the table.

Chelsea: Um, I'm really sorry the babysitter canceled at the last minute.

Adam: No, it's nothing. Are you kidding me? Happy to have him. And you, you look so different than you did last time I saw you. You're growing like a weed. Is that's what's happening here?

Sage: Gabriel's grandmother has this extensive wine cellar, and it was hard to drag him away. What was your favorite red wine again, babe?

Adam: Some things are worth leaving the cellar for. Isn't that right, buddy? Huh?

Chelsea: Spoken like a man who's ready to have kids.

Adam: Yeah, no, I mean, if I could, I'd have a dozen just like this.

Chelsea: A dozen?

Adam: Yeah. Why think small, right?

Chelsea: I'd have a dozen of you, though, 'cause you're so cute.

Adam: God, he's like -- he's built like a football player. You know what I mean? Good build to him. Yeah, he's strong.

Chelsea: You're so strong.

Adam: Look at him. He's like a bear.

Kevin: A party at the Abbott cabin.

Mariah: Rich people crack me up. Cabins and mansions and jets. I mean, what's wrong with the local bar?

Kevin: We tried that last time. We ended up in jail.

Mariah: Fine. Be logical. So, then who's the host?

Kevin: Summer and Austin? The invitation was behind the bar. That is Austin's domain.

Mariah: Yeah, but his wife hates me, so obviously we're on the guest list?

Kevin: Hmm. Ah. Here comes the man with the answers.

Mariah: Hey, so Valentine's Day.

Austin: Yeah, perfect time for a job hunt, right? Time to break out the old suit and tie.

Kevin: What's the deal? You're not getting enough hours here?

Austin: No, zero hours here. I'm actually just here for my last paycheck.

Mariah: What? You quit? So you're gonna leave me with a second string to get me through my shifts? No way! Unquit!

Austin: I'm not gonna take a job from Jack. Why would I take one from nick? Okay? It's a hand-out. I'm no one's charity case.

Victor: You've got to remember now that Jack Abbott took Kelly Andrews' word over yours. He's been played by someone that obvious.

Phyllis: You see, I told everybody about the stupid dress stunt she pulled, emptying my gas tank. And nobody wanted to believe me.

Victor: Well, obviously you must know that she wants you out of the picture. Badly. Now, she thinks that you are at a disadvantage.

[Door opens]

Victor: Let her think that.

Summer: Mom?

Victor: It'll be her undoing.

[Door closes]

Summer: Mom.

Victor: Sweetheart.

Phyllis: Come here. Oh, I'm okay. I'm okay. Everything's okay.

Summer: Jack told me you're staying here now?

Phyllis: Yeah. Did he send you?

Summer: Mom, he's really worried about you.

Phyllis: Listen to me, sweetheart. I'm okay. I'm not broken. I'm good. Not by the medication, not by the coma, not by Fairview. Now, your grandfather believes it, and I need you to believe it, too, okay? Hey. Can you do that for me?

Jack: Dr. Barrett.

Dr. Barrett: Mr. Abbott, I trust that Phyllis is adjusting well to being home?

Jack: Exactly how did you reach your diagnosis regarding Phyllis' stability?

Dr. Barrett: My methodology?

Jack: Who convinced you to declare her competent to stand trial? Was it the D.A.? Was it the chief of police? Or a very powerful mogul with an agenda?

Dr. Barrett: No one got to me, if that's what you're implying.

Jack: No, I'm not implying anything. I'm asking you a question. Whatever figure he may have mentioned to you, I'm willing to double it.

Dr. Barrett: If you want to defend Phyllis' cause, bribing me is not the way. I spoke to Phyllis, and I spoke to the victim, and in the end, the result was clear.

Jack: Wait. The victim? You spoke to Kelly?

Christine: Phyllis is finally going down for what she's done.

Paul: To Kelly Andrews or to us 20 years ago?

Christine: You know, al Capone went to prison for tax evasion. I'll take Phyllis behind bars any way I can get it. She deserves to pay.

Paul: What about us?

Christine: We deserve to be there when a jury finds her guilty.

Paul: Or here's another option. You know, we could just, um, live our lives and focus on having a healthy baby.

Christine: And what? I can't do my job as a D.A. And carry a healthy baby?

Paul: Be honest, Chris. It's -- it's not just a job right now. This is your mission. It's -- it's stress, it's anger, it's tension you don't need right now. Please would just hand the case over to the A.D.A.?

Christine: Why would I ever do that?

Paul: So we can surround our baby with nothing but positive things.

Christine: You know, you're around misery and violence every day. You're not backing off from your job, and no one would ever ask you to do that.

Paul: Yeah, but I'm not as emotionally...tied up in it, not as much as you are now.

Christine: This child is gonna come into a world where innocent people don't just turn over and take it. Phyllis is going to be punished for her crimes. We believe in the justice system. This is how it was supposed to turn out. I am not gonna walk away now.

Paul: You're not hearing me.

Christine: No, stop. I love you, okay? But this is going to happen.

Paul: [Sighs]

Avery: You know what? Your wife had the right idea. Just pretend like I'm not here.

Paul: Avery, we need to talk about this. We need to keep this from blowing up on everybody.

Phyllis: Now, I don't care what most of the world thinks, but you are my girl. What you believe matters.

Summer: Mom...

Victor: Sweetheart, your mother is right, okay? To know that your family has faith in you makes all the difference in the world, all right? Phyllis, if you need me, I'll be over here.

Summer: Mom, I love you. I love you so much. I don't even think you know how much I love you.

Phyllis: I do. I do. I do, because I love you more. Come. Very difficult to leave you for a year. And when I come back, I, uh, I promised you that it would all be okay. But it wasn't. I wasn't. And that must have been very scary for you. And it wasn't the medication like Jack says. It was the world. It kept spinning without me, and I just think that I needed some time to catch up. And now I have. And I'm telling you, I did not hurt Kelly.

Summer: I know you don't think so. I mean, I know you don't have any memories or anything like that.

Phyllis: I don't remember it because it never happened, honey. I didn't black out. I didn't lose time. I didn't make plans and carry out a crime and have it magically poof out of my head because it just didn't happen.

Summer: Okay, but you went to the doctor's, you went to Fairview. I mean, you must have known that something was wrong.

Phyllis: Honey, that was the insanity, trusting anyone but myself. You see, this time, I know that I am innocent. I know that I have pulled a stunt or two in my life, yes. But this time, I know that I did not poison Kelly. Now, I am going to fight, and I am going to clear my name.

Summer: Well, you sound like you. I-I really want to believe you.

Phyllis: Okay. That's good enough for me right now, okay? And eventually I will give you many reasons to know that I am telling the truth. But until that happens, you have to do me a favor.

Summer: Yeah, of course. Anything. What?

Phyllis: I want you to be careful around Kelly. I mean it. She is truly a dangerous woman.

Jack: Kelly!

Kelly: Jack. Hi. What's wrong?

Jack: Explain to me why you spoke to Phyllis' psychiatrist.

Kelly: Um, because he asked me to speak to him?

Jack: He came to you? He asked to speak to you?

Kelly: Well, what do you think? I tracked the man down and inserted myself into the middle of all of this?

Jack: Did you?

Kelly: No! Dr. Barrett came to me. And considering the law is involved, I felt I had no choice but to answer his questions.

Jack: You certainly had a choice not to paint Phyllis like a manipulative maniac.

Kelly: I didn't do anything of the sort! I didn't say anything like that!

Jack: Okay, so what did you say?

Kelly: Verbatim? Well, I'm sorry, Jack. I didn't have a tape recorder on me at the time! You know I didn't want charges pressed against Phyllis. You know that. So for you to come charging in here making it sound like this is all my fault --

Jack: I should never have bought your innocent act, innocent and vulnerable and needing protection. You have wanted Phyllis to suffer since she came back home.

Kelly: That's not true! You are wrong, Jack. Now, I understand that -- that you're upset, but you are twisting this all around, and it is not fair! I told that doctor that I did not want Phyllis locked up, that that was the last thing that I possibly wanted. I told him that I had no lasting effects of the poison. I'm -- I'm feeling perfectly fine now. You and Summer and Phyllis, all of you -- you're the ones that are going through a lot, and I just want it over, okay? I just wanted it all done!

Jack: And somehow not a word of that made it into his report.

Adam: So, I just casually said, "that's a drop-waist bias cut," and all of a sudden, I had more fashion cred than I could handle.

Chelsea: You knew all that, the drop-waist?

Adam: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I mean, doesn't everybody at Jabot know that?

Billy: Yeah, well, I have an in with the designer, but that's -- that's just me.

Chelsea: Oh, hey, we should have a toast to the newlyweds.

Billy: You know, I feel like we're crashing your honeymoon even having you guys here, so what made you guys decide to take the plunge?

Sage: So many reasons. Who can say one?

Chelsea: Uh, well, the bottle's empty. I'm gonna go grab another one.

Adam: I'll help you out with that.

Chelsea: Sure.

Adam: Yeah.

Billy: I'm sorry about that before.

Sage: Sorry about inviting us over?

Billy: This is the evening that every newlywed dreams of, isn't it? When the conversation turned to kids, you just seemed kind of upset. Hey, I don't -- I don't think that anybody else noticed. You can tell me to take a hike. I mean, I know this is none of my business.

Sage: No, um... it's just that sometimes you can want a child so much, but wishing for a family doesn't make it real.

Mariah: Really? You're gonna do this?

Austin: And with this huge last paycheck, I can finally retire.

Mariah: Austin, seriously, what are you gonna do?

Summer: Hi.

Austin: Hi.

Mariah: So, are you the v-day hostess or what?

Summer: What are you talking about?

Mariah: That would be a no.

Kevin: Mariah and me, too, I guess, got this invitation to a Valentine's Day party at the Abbott cabin with no mention of who's hosting.

Austin: Yeah, we got the same invitation last night.

Summer: We did?

Mariah: That was a question. Did snowflake not go home last night?

Sage: I'm so sorry. This headache came on really fast and...

Chelsea: No, of course. We totally understand.

Adam: Yeah, well, thanks for the invitation and the effort. We really appreciate it. And, you know, um, sweetheart, we should do this next time at our place. We'll make it like a regular thing once we get settled.

Billy: Yeah. Well, uh, listen, you take care of that headache. And, uh, have a good night.

Adam: All right, good night.

Chelsea: Bye. Well, that was nice, right?

Billy: You're nice.

Chelsea: Okay, it was awkward a couple of times. Most of the time. Um, but, you know, that's why it's important for Gabriel and Sage to see what a happy home looks like.

Billy: And we are the happiest. But I really don't think that we should have Connor around the neighbors anymore.

Chelsea: I think Gabe was really sweet around him, especially for a guy with no kids.

Billy: This isn't about Gabe. I'm talking about Sage.

Adam: "Wishing can't give you a family." Are you kidding me? Could you have been a little more subtle back there? You know what we should do? The next time we're over there, we should get a DNA test ready, right, so that we can compare Connor's to mine.

Sage: Because you're all that matters here.

Adam: Oh, stop trying to share the misery, okay? You can't have nick, so you want to blow things up between me and Chelsea?

Sage: You are such an idiot. I was talking about myself back there. And I can wish all I want, but I can't have children.

Kelly: It makes sense for you to be angry or upset or even terrified about what Phyllis is going through, but it does not make sense for you to blame me! I have done everything I can possibly do to leave you and Phyllis in peace!

Jack: Like talking to Phyllis' evaluating psychiatrist?

Kelly: Ah!

Jack: I don't know how many ways I can say this. Getting Phyllis out of the way does not clear the way for you and me.

Kelly: Yes, which you keep coming all the way over here to remind me, so let me remind

you -- I am not angling to be your consolation prize!

Jack: Phyllis needs love and comfort and support, and I'm gonna give it to her. If anyone tries to undermine her effort to get her life back --

Kelly: There is only one person who is undermining her chance to get her life back, and that is Phyllis. Do you understand that, Jack? I understand how difficult it is to -- to pull yourself out of a spiral after a trauma. I understand that, okay? It is forgivable, even. But what is not forgivable is for the people around you to get pulled into that spiral and act crazy, as well. And that's what you're doing, Jack!

Jack: I don't want your advice or your understanding or your concern. I want you to stay away.

Kelly: [Sighs] [Gasps]

Adam: Uh, did Gabriel know? Did you ever tell him?

Sage: Did Gabriel know if I can't have kids? Why would he know that?

Adam: Well, you guys were lifelong friends, right? Married him.

Sage: As a business arrangement, just like this. I didn't tell Gabriel what he didn't need to know. He wanted to keep it, you know, light, fun. There was no room in our relationship for sadness. And I was okay with that. Just... [Voice breaking] Just being with him, it was enough for me.

Adam: This business relationship you had with him, it was one-sided, right? I mean, you wanted more? And then along comes golden boy Nicholas Newman, right? He's getting caught in bear traps, he's, uh, he's sending flowers, he's bumbling and cocky at the same time, right? I tell you what, whoever marries that lummox, they got a family life right away.

Sage: Oh, how awful for him. And how pathetic am I? [Sobs]

Adam: You're not pathetic.

Sage: What's this?

Adam: Uh, my arm fell asleep.

Sage: Okay. So, you got a heart somewhere in there, I guess, don't you? [Chuckles]

Adam: Let's not get carried away, okay?

Sage: You're gonna win Chelsea back, aren't you?

Billy: Sage just got this look in her eye when she was playing with one of Connor's toys. And, of course, I was pushy and out of line and asked her about it. It turns out she can't have kids.

Chelsea: Oh. I had no idea. Maybe I should go apologize to her.

Billy: Chels, just -- just leave it alone for now. They got stuff they need to work out.

Chelsea: Yeah. I'm not surprised you picked up on Sage's sadness. You're a great person. And an incredible father. I think Gabriel would make a good dad, too. I hope he finds a way to make it happen.

Billy: Yeah. Yeah.

Summer: Why do you care where anyone sleeps? What? Are you worried you might have missed your chance?

Mariah: It was just an observation, but since I hit a sore spot, let's talk about it some more.

Kevin: Or not. Not is a good path to take. We could not talk about it. Come over here.

Summer: I know that last night was bad, but I don't understand why you can't work for my dad anymore.

Austin: I have to quit. I have to move on.

Summer: Move on, like... from us?

Austin: No.

Summer: I'm sorry. I should have come home last night.

Austin: Well, are you gonna come home tonight?

Summer: Yeah.

Austin: Maybe we can go back to being grateful for every second, every holiday.

Summer: Yeah, I'd like that. And what about Valentine's Day? Are we gonna want to spend it with other people at a cabin?

Austin: That's totally your call, but I don't know. Could be fun.

Summer: It might be. Come on. Hey, um, can I see that? Thank you.

Kevin: So, what do we think? Who's hosting this mysterious tribute to love and romance?

Paul: I'm just saying a way around this would be to approach Chris with a plea deal.

Avery: So she can laugh in my face? Chris doesn't want a plea deal. She wants retribution and maximum suffering.

Paul: Look, Avery... this isn't coming from the chief. This is coming from your personal friend. Chris' stress level is through the roof right now. The sooner this is over, the better.

Avery: You're worried about the baby. Paul, I understand. I do.

Paul: This case is the only thing she can see right now. Nothing else.

Avery: Which is a statement on her obsession and another argument for me not making a deal for my client.

Paul: A plea bargain would be the biggest favor you could give Phyllis.

Avery: Okay, will Chris accept a plea with no prison time?

Paul: No, but with -- with a plea, the prison time is limited.

Avery: Versus no prison time if we go to trial and I successfully defend my sister.

Paul: Look, what you don't know right now is the psych assessment came in and it is very damning.

Avery: No, I do know that. Christine very generously shared it with me earlier.

Paul: Well, then you know a plea bargain is Phyllis' best chance. Look, if you talk to Chris and I talk to Chris --

Avery: What am I supposed to do, Paul? Throw up my hands and just give up on my sister?

Paul: You're not giving up. It's a solution. A plea bargain is the best possible way to end this now before more damage is done.

Phyllis: What are you doing here?

Jack: I realize you don't want to see me right now, but the doctor's report is in. You've been declared competent to stand trial.

Phyllis: Old news. I heard.

Jack: I'm sorry.

Phyllis: That I'm sane?

Jack: That the doctor didn't see that there are extenuating circumstances.

Phyllis: From my crimes?

Jack: They're not crimes. Mistakes. But we need to discuss a legal strategy for your defense.

Phyllis: My strategy is simple. Only trust people who believe in me.

Jack: I do believe in you with all my heart.

Phyllis: You can keep it. I'll be just fine. I have Victor on my side.

Victor: Jack Abbott does not deserve your tears.

Kelly: Thank you. [Sniffles] Thank you, Mr. Newman. Are you here to book an event?

Victor: I'm here because you and I want the same thing.

Kelly: [Exhales sharply]

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

Nikki: How could you let Phyllis move into my home?!

Ashley: You took my fragrance and slapped your name on it, and now you're going to market ahead of us!

Avery: If anybody needs a stay at Fairview, it's you, lady.

Kelly: Stop saying that!
