Dylan: Hey, hey! How was the movie?

Faith: Awesome.

Dylan: Yeah?

Mariah: Well, technically, the jujubes and the popcorn were awesome.

Faith: And the goobers and the licorice and the root beer.

Dylan: Okay. No more sugar for you. Oh, no! No candy!

Mariah: [Chuckles] Catch me later.

Faith: You're the best.

Mariah: This is what big sisters do.

Faith: [Chuckles] I'm gonna be just as good a sister to sully.

Dylan: You're already a phenomenal big sister.

Mariah: Speaking of, where is my godson?

Dylan: Uh, he's, uh, with the sitter. Sharon's talking with Dr. Anderson right now.

Sharon: Faith diving into her presents and Dylan, my husband, holding sully like the little gift that he is...

Dr. Anderson: Wow. It must have been so wonderful to start your new life together as husband and wife with such a perfect day.

Sharon: When Santa Claus brings you a wedding, the whole world is magic. I'm so glad you were there to share it with us. You know, what else made Christmas very special was that we got to share our joy with Nick and sage.

Dr. Anderson: Nick and sage? I-I thought they were taking some time apart.

Sharon: They went out of town to work on their relationship. They fought through a snowstorm so they could be with us on Christmas morning. And...they were so sweet with sully. They were caring of each other. Maybe Nick and sage have realized that they can have a life after losing their child.

Adam: I got to tell you, I think you're officially the bravest woman on the planet, offering to, uh, design Abby Newman's wedding dress? Really?

Chelsea: It'll be fun.

Adam: Okay. Well, you're gonna earn every penny, you know. I mean, that -- that woman's gonna put the "b" in "Bridezilla." You know that, right?

Chelsea: I don't care. I love weddings. And I love wedding dresses.

Adam: Well, I love my bride. Have I mentioned that recently?

Chelsea: Mm, not in the past like 43 seconds. Looks like you're slacking in the wife appreciation department.

Adam: Yeah, I'm off my game. Well, I'll have to remedy that. I have an idea.

Chelsea: What's that?

Adam: We should take this inside. I can show you my appreciation all over again. What do you think?

Chelsea: [Laughs] Uh, have you, um, have you thought anymore about what I said?

Adam: About the fact that you like when I start here?

Chelsea: No, no. About -- about us having another baby.

Adam: Yeah. Um... yeah, I mean, a baby is a, um, baby is a big decision.

Chelsea: It's huge.

Adam: Yeah.

Chelsea: It's just, when I saw you holding Sharon's baby at the Christmas eve party, I just sensed -- I don't know. I sensed that you enjoyed that connection, so...

[Cell phone chimes]

Adam: Oh. Uh-oh. Okay. Great. Um, I'm gonna have to -- I got to grab a couple of files from in there and bring them to the office. You want to just meet up later?

Chelsea: But to be continued?

Adam: Yes, absolutely to be continued.

Chelsea: Okay.

Adam: Okay.

Chelsea: Bye.

Adam: Good luck with Abby. She bites.

Chelsea: Thanks.

Stitch: Okay, walk away, Billy, because I have no problem helping you out of here with or without your cooperation.

Victoria: Ben, it's okay. It's not what you think.

Billy: Or, you know, maybe it is.

Marisa: Are you, uh, waiting to go in?

Noah: Oh, yeah. Uh, my -- my grandfather wanted to see me, but he's in there with somebody right now.

Marisa: Uh, Luca.

Noah: Um... I'm sorry about the other day, uh, breaking Luca's phone. I...

Marisa: Oh, no, it was an accident.

Noah: No, I know. I just -- I hope that you were able to recover the photo of your daughter.

Marisa: I was.

Noah: Good. Good. That's good. Good.

Marisa: Noah, I-I can't do this.

Victor: Newman enterprises will not expand its south American mining interests. It's bad business.

Luca: In your opinion.

Victor: The Santoris have no expertise in this field, so my opinion is the only one that matters.

Luca: The Santoris invested a small fortune in this company. We're your partners. You seem to forget who you're talking to.

Victor: [Laughs]

Nick: Didn't see you there.

Adam: No. No, I could tell. I didn't realize you guys made it back into town.

Nick: Yeah, we, uh, promised faith we'd watch her open up her Christmas presents. It was worth it.

Sage: It was wonderful.

Adam: Good. Uh, too bad you missed Nikki's, uh, Christmas eve party, though.

Nick: Yeah, well, mother nature wouldn't ease up on the white stuff, so couldn't make it.

Adam: Yeah. You know, Victor almost missed the party, as well. He was convinced he had to burn the midnight oil, but your daughter, faith, she convinced him to go. It was nice.

Nick: Well, I don't doubt my daughter's powers of persuasion, but I'm surprised she could get dad away from his desk.

Adam: Yeah, me, too. Well, rebuilding Newman's a 24/7 thing, so...

Nick: Glad I'm out of it.

Adam: He's got a good team around him. Loyal, capable. I'm surprised Noah didn't clue you in.

Nick: Clue me in to what?

Adam: Well, he's working with us now at Newman.

Nick: And how exactly did dad manage that?

Adam: He didn't. It was actually my idea, you know. I think it's good. He's young, he's a go-getter, he's talented, he's smart. Best of all, he's a Newman. It's perfect.

Nick: Huh. All right, well, I got to get to the underground.

Adam: Yeah.

Nick: I'll see you later?

Sage: You will.

Nick: Excuse me.

Adam: Yeah, no. Do it. Well, he's gone, so you can tell me -- how awful was your Christmas, honestly?

Victoria: Billy wasn't bothering me. We were just talking.

Billy: Yeah, but maybe somebody fell in the pool upstairs if you want to play lifeguard.

Stitch: Okay. I'm sorry.

Billy: You know what? No, it isn't. Um... [Scoffs] I'm -- I'm sorry, man. This should be my apology. I was drunk and out of control and a complete jackass at the underground and making everybody else there miserable, so...

Abby: You outdid yourself.

Billy: Yeah. Humiliating, but true. Um, you were just looking out for Victoria, and I'm really sorry that I took a swing at you.

Stitch: Yeah, well, you missed, so apology accepted. It's a new day, Billy.

Billy: It is. And I'm grateful. You know, I tried really hard to dislike your future husband here, but, uh, he makes it pretty difficult.

Stitch: Yeah, well, new year's coming. It's a fresh start for all of us, right?

Abby: A fresh married start.

Billy: Gives me all kinds of hope.

Abby: What did I just see?

Stitch: I think you just saw a guy in love who has no quit in him.

Marisa: How can you do this? Working together, passing each other in the halls?

Noah: We just work in the same place, Marisa. It's just business.

Marisa: So, this is -- this is easy for you?

Noah: What did you expect I was gonna do? Sit in a corner, curled up in the dark because you broke it off with me? Look, I want you to be happy, Marisa. I really do. With or without me. I mean that.

Marisa: But seeing each other ev-- every day?

Noah: I'm just here to do my job, which is to ensure that the partnership between my family and the Santoris is profitable. So, if you need anything from me, I'm available.

Marisa: You've been so good to me, Noah. I haven't deserved --

[Door opens]

Luca: Am I interrupting?

Noah: Uh, Luca, no, not at all. As a matter of fact, um, you know, I was actually just apologizing to Marisa about the incident with the phone. And, uh, as a matter of fact, I wanted to thank you for stepping in and saving my job with my grandfather. I appreciate that.

Luca: Victor and I understand each other.

Victor: Noah!

Luca: Better not keep your boss waiting.

[Door closes]

Victor: It's about time.

Noah: Well, Luca seems to be pretty haughty about his new, uh, position here at the Newman enterprises. Seems to think the two of you are, uh, simpatico.

Victor: [Chuckles] The punk thinks he can tell me how to run my business.

Noah: You set him straight?

Victor: Well, I'll give him the feeling that he has some input, you know, that way he can show off to his wife and his family.

Noah: How long you gonna let him keep that up?

Victor: Until I decide it's time not to.

Noah: Look, you already know the endgame here, don't you, grandpa? Whatever you need to get rid of the Santoris and Luca, you can count on me.

Victor: I can?

Noah: Yes. Look, I know that I screwed up with the FBI and letting that guy get to me. It's just the way that he acts like he owns Marisa. It just... look, you can trust me, okay? That's why I'm here. That's why I took this job. I want to set things straight. I want to get rid of the Santoris for good.

Victor: I love you, my boy. And you'll get a chance, all right?

Noah: Thank you.

Victor: Okay.

Billy: Hey, Kev. Got a minute? You need a partner.

Kevin: Billy, you and I are not playing "masters of the cyber universe" together. Go home.

Billy: Actually, I'm here to deal with the fallout from my drunk driving drama.

Kevin: Well, technically, you drunk crashed.

Billy: And burned. But this is me rising from the ashes. I've got it together now.

Kevin: Oh. By "now," do you mean the last half hour or so?

Billy: I thought you were done with the judgment, especially after you used your powers for not-so-good when you helped me sic paragon on Victor.

Kevin: Ah. The Victor threat again. You know, it didn't scare me the first time.

Billy: No, it's not a threat. I cleaned up my act, just like you did. I made amends with jack and Victoria. I'm off the booze, the betting, the general bad behavior.

Kevin: Well, go to a meeting and collect a chip. I've got nothing for you.

Billy: Yes, you do. Kevin, come on. Look, look, I need -- I need something to prove to my family, okay? 'Cause if I can help you shepherd this cyber project and make it a success, then maybe they'll trust me again.

Kevin: Jack won't trust you with his business. Victoria won't trust you with your children. I'm supposed to trust you with my future?

Abby: Are you and Billy getting back together?

Victoria: Listen, a conversation doesn't mean that we are anything, okay?

Abby: It's a start. It must be Santa's magic.

Victoria: I think I'll have to give this one to Phyllis, at least in part. Well, you did hear that she locked jack and Billy in the cabin so that they would make peace, you know?

Abby: Hoping for a Christmas miracle.

Stitch: Yeah, it's a miracle they left in one piece.

Victoria: Well, after that, Billy showed up at the house. He was stone-cold sober, and he had presents for the kids.

Stitch: Maybe to plead his case.

Victoria: I've heard all of Billy's excuses. But this time, he's trying so hard. He's really determined to prove himself. I owe him at least that chance, don't I, for Johnny and Katherine?

Abby: And maybe because you love the heck out of him.

Victoria: I just hope this time Billy can see it through.

Chelsea: Hello, bride-to-be. You ready to look at some dress sketches?

Abby: Yes!

Stitch: Oh, I will take that as my cue.

Abby: Um, I will talk to you later?

Stitch: Okay. Have fun, ladies.

Victoria: Thank you.

Abby: Ben, um, wait. Actually, did you talk to Jenna about max coming to the wedding?

Stitch: I left a few messages, but I still haven't heard back. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised since max didn't want to talk to me on Christmas.

Abby: Well, maybe because your son has heard his mother tear you apart his entire life. What is up with her? Look, she knows the truth about you now, that -- that you're not a criminal, that you are a kind, amazing, sweet, honorable man, that you have the biggest heart ever, right? And she still trashes you to your son. Who does that?

Stitch: Okay, it's okay, Abby.

Abby: It's not okay. We are getting married. We are starting a new life together, a new family. Of course you want your son to be a part of that. Jenna owes this to you.

Stitch: Okay, well, I will relay that sentiment to her in a less fierce tone, of course.

Abby: No one disses my husband.

Stitch: Mmm.

Abby: Get used to it.

Stitch: Whoa.

Abby: Mm-hmm.

Stitch: Wow. [Sighs] Jenna, hey, it's me again. Listen, we have -- we have got to sort this out, okay? I-I know I missed a lot of time with max, but marrying Abby is a big day for me. It's a new beginning, and I want him to be a part of it. [Sighs] Okay, it would be great if we could work together as reasonable adults to make this happen for our son. Please.

Sharon: That Nick and sage have come so far that we could celebrate together with the baby, the day was incredibly healing.

Dr. Anderson: I'm glad it was such a success.

Sharon: Well, same time next week?

Dr. Anderson: Sounds good. You take care.

Sharon: Okay.

Dr. Anderson: Okay. [Sighs]

Mariah: Really? Don't you feel like you should be seeing a regular therapist and not the one from Fairview?

Sharon: Dr. Anderson offered to continue with my care so that I don't relapse. I owe her everything.

Mariah: Yeah. She's collecting. I mean, the gift to sully and crashing the wedding -- don't you think she's overstepping just a tad?

Sharon: She's concerned.

Mariah: There's concerned and then there's that crazy cuckoo look she has in her eyes.

Sharon: Not everyone is Ian ward.

Mariah: Wow. Left field. Thank you for that.

Sharon: I just mean he gained your trust and he manipulated you, and it's natural that now you might be suspicious of someone else who's in a position of authority who's offering comfort and advice.

Mariah: All I'm saying is that if you're not careful, she's gonna shrink-wrap your head and hang it in a rearview mirror.

Nick: Dr. Anderson.

Dr. Anderson: Oh, Nick. Call me sandy, please. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

Nick: Uh, back at you. And I did.

Dr. Anderson: That smile says it was pretty special.

Nick: Uh, well, don't judge, but I went against your advice. I asked sage to go away with me for a few days so we could reconnect, and it was great. Then we came back, uh, Christmas morning and we spent it with Sharon and Dylan watching faith open up her Christmas presents.

Dr. Anderson: And Sharon's baby?

Nick: Oh, it was fine. I mean, sage even held sully for a while. It was amazing.

Dr. Anderson: I'm glad the day was so happy.

Nick: But?

Dr. Anderson: It's -- it's not my place. You're not my patient.

Nick: Sandy, I'm asking you as a friend.

Dr. Anderson: [Sighs] I've -- I've seen what losing a child does to a woman, watching other mothers live the joy they'll never have. I've seen them completely break down because of it. I would hate for my next patient to be sage.

Adam: Here you go.

Sage: Oh, thanks.

Adam: Sure.

Sage: Faith was so excited when she opened up her gifts. Nick gathered all the bows together and made a little bow-quet. Isn't that cute?

Adam: Yeah. It's cute. I remember them doing all that family tradition stuff.

Sage: What?

Adam: Well, it's a little insensitive, isn't it, considering what you just went through?

Sage: No. I can't expect Nick not to enjoy today with faith because of me.

Adam: Because you just lost a child, because you won't have any experiences like that. And there you are, you're sitting there with Nick and faith and Dylan and Sharon and sully, and you got no one. How could you not think of Christian?

Sage: Don't say his name like that.

Adam: And the Christmases you're never gonna have and the birthdays that you're never gonna have.

Sage: Why are you doing this?

Abby: I cannot thank you enough for doing this.

Chelsea: Listen, you convinced Victor to give me back my company. I will gladly design all your wedding dresses.

Abby: [Chuckles]

Chelsea: Sorry. That's -- that's -- that didn't come out right. Um...[Laughs] Obviously you're only gonna need one wedding dress. I just -- you know -- you know what I was saying.

Victoria: Of course.

Abby: Well, um, you are very talented, and I don't know how I'm gonna choose.

Chelsea: Well, you will know the right one when you see it.

Victoria: That's how it was for me. Love at first sight. Luckily it went well with handcuffs.


Abby: Well, I wish I could use those on Jenna.

Chelsea: Oh, stitch's ex?

Abby: [Sighs]

Victoria: Is she still being a pain in the butt?

Abby: Worse. She's rubbing off on max. He copped a total attitude on Christmas. He wouldn't even talk to Ben. Ben was totally crushed.

Chelsea: Rule number one -- no matter how badly things end, you shouldn't be bad-mouthing your ex. And you certainly shouldn't be using the kid as a pawn.

Victoria: Yeah, I'm sure that Jenna is just protecting max. You know, it's very hard to co-parent with someone after they've hurt you.

Abby: Back when she thought he was a crazed killer, yeah, I get it. But she knows that's not him. She knows the kind of man that he is, but yet she's still trying to turn max against his father.

Chelsea: I met her, remember? When Billy and I were in Australia. She definitely despised stitch. Looks like nothing's changed.

Abby: This wedding is her chance to step up, to get over herself, to realize that stitch has sacrificed and suffered enough. Jenna needs to give Ben this gift and do what's right for max in the process.

Stitch: You know, I'm starting to think this whole wedding thing is just practice for the marriage part. So you know what I do?

Dylan: What do you do?

Stitch: I shut up and do as I'm told.

Dylan: [Laughs] Well, you're a fast learner.

Stitch: Yeah, I'm ready for the real deal.

Dylan: Well, there's nothing like it, man.

[Cell phone rings]

Dylan: It's great. It's, uh --

Stitch: Excuse me, man. It's Jenna. I got to take this.

Dylan: Yeah, sure.

Stitch: Hey. Thanks for calling me back. Okay, w-what do you mean, max can't come? Why won't you let him? Come on, Jenna. I have respected your wishes from day one, okay? I never fought you. I never asked for anything. I'm asking you now. I'm getting married. I want my son there. [Scoffs] Yeah, you're right. I don't have much of a relationship with max right now because you took him to Australia! No -- good parenting? Don't kid yourself, okay, 'cause you're being selfish and vindictive! Hello? Jenna. Jenna! [Groans]

[Sighs] I'm sorry, man. I-I shouldn't have let her get to me like that.

Dylan: You have every right to be upset. Stitch, I couldn't imagine somebody keeping my son from me.

Sage: [Sighs]

Adam: I'm sorry.

Sage: [Sniffles]

Adam: That was -- that was insensitive of me. I shouldn't have talked about your son like that. I apologize.

Sage: It's okay. Thank you. I just thought I was past this, you know, or getting past it, at least. Every time I think about Christian or I hear his name, I end up like a freaking mess.

Adam: No one expects you to be magically okay.

Sage: But I want to be okay, Adam. I have to be okay.

Nick: You know, sage was good. She was strong. It was probably tough for her at first to be around the baby, but after awhile, I think she started to enjoy it.

Dr. Anderson: I'm sure it appeared that way, but what you witnessed was sage internalizing her real feelings, trying to live up to what you want her to be.

Nick: I just want her to be happy.

Dr. Anderson: That's where the pressure comes in. She doesn't want to disappoint you, so she plays a role, suppresses her true emotions, which can be very harmful. Look, Nick, I-I know it's not what you want to hear, but as much as you think spending time with sully is good for sage, it only makes things more difficult for her.

Nick: I thought we were making progress.

Dr. Anderson: The best thing you can do for sage is to relieve her of all these expectations. Instead of putting her in situations like the one at Christmas, just take a step back and give her space to grieve. But hey, look, it's just my opinion. You need to do what's best.

Nick: Thank you.

Dr. Anderson: You're welcome.

Nick: Hey, ladies.

Faith: Daddy, do you want some?

Nick: You know what? I think I'm all candied out.

Sharon: Um, Nick, I... there's something... there's something that I didn't mention to you on Christmas day, and it has to do with Noah.

Nick: Yeah, Adam was very excited to share that news with me. Why the hell is Noah working at Newman after what dad pulled with Marisa?

Sharon: She's exactly the reason Noah's doing it.

Victor: Just continue what you're doing, Noah. The hard-working grandson trying to prove himself. Gain Marisa's and Luca's trust.

Noah: Come on, grandpa. What is it? What -- what is it you're not telling me?

Victor: Just remember that some sacrifices will have to be made.

Noah: What kind of sacrifices?

Victor: Noah... every so often in business, you have to go into war, you know? The Santoris fight dirty. But your grandfather relishes that. But if need be, I fight dirtier, okay? You just got to make sure that you have your emotions under control.

Noah: My feelings for Marisa, so they don't cloud my judgment.

Victor: Exactly. All right?

Noah: 'Cause it's Luca's wife and it's his weak spot. Oh, and Luca's father hates her.

Victor: You know, she's one of those women who inspires passion in men, for better or worse.

Noah: So when we're talking about sacrifices, is she gonna be one of them?

Victor: You just remember what you promised, that you will do everything in your power to help this family.

Our family. Remember that.

Billy: The cyber project wouldn't be some long-shot lottery ticket for me. I would make it my life. And I admit I don't know my nanobytes from my gigabytes, but I do know how to sell, and I understand how a project of this size and scope -- look, I know what it takes, and I can deliver.

Kevin: Yeah, you tend to deliver -- punches, excuses.

Billy: I would invest blood, sweat, and tears in this. I need something to prove to my family that I'm sorry about paragon and I'm not just some screw-up.

Kevin: Okay.

Billy: Come on, man. Work with me.

Kevin: Okay. You're a new man, or you're trying to be. Well, props on the effort.

Billy: You will not regret this.

Kevin: Billy, I'm sorry. I have nothing. The hacker bailed.

Billy: What happened?

Kevin: She's not returning my calls. She stopped responding to my e-mails and my texts. Maybe she found another partner. Who knows? But it appears as though the cyber fortune train has left the station without us.

Billy: [Sighs] Hey, Mariah.

Mariah: Hey. Punchy McDrunkerson.

Billy: I guess I deserve that one.

Mariah: Yeah.

Billy: Looking for Kevin?

Mariah: I'm actually just dropping off. The man is crazy about fruitcake. It's twisted. What can I say?

Billy: Yeah. You know, he was just telling me about his Swiss hacker friend. It's pretty outrageous, right? I mean, if it's true. What -- what do you think? Think the girl's for real?

Stitch: Jenna's never been easy to deal with, but when it came down to it, I always thought she'd do the right thing.

Dylan: So you're telling me that you don't have any say at all in the custody arrangement?

Stitch: I signed those papers. I have to deal with it.

Dylan: [Sighs]

Stitch: You know... [Scoffs] You go into a marriage with all these hopes and dreams -- a life, a family. You never think it can go so wrong.

Nick: Let's talk about something important.

Faith: Am I getting a puppy?

Nick: [Chuckles]

Sharon: Let's just leave it at a new baby brother for now.

Faith: Okay.

Nick: How would you feel about a new house?

Faith: What's wrong with the old one?

Nick: Uh, nothing. Nothing's wrong with it.

Faith: Where?

Nick: In Grandpa's old building. We would stay, uh, you know, across the hall from where he used to live.

Sharon: And your room will have a view of the whole city. And the best part is, you can walk to the park.

Faith: And feed the ducks every day?

Nick: You could do that twice a day if you want.

Faith: Cool. But then I couldn't walk to see mommy and sully.

Sharon: Well, you'll still see us just as often as you always do.

Nick: Oh, yeah. Yeah. Sully's gonna need his big sister. You're gonna get lots of quality time with your little bro. That's a promise.

Sage: You know, when I was up in the mountains with Nick away from everything, I felt...good. I felt like -- I felt like myself. And I was able to hold baby sully and look into his eyes and not fall apart. I thought I was getting better. And then... I think about him. I think about Christian. And [Scoffs]...

Adam: You know, um, sage, there's no -- there's no running clock on this. You're ready when you're ready. Heal in your own time.

[Knock on door]

Adam: Excuse me. Dad, come on in. What's the occasion?

Victor: We have important work to do, son. Why aren't you at the office?

Adam: Oh, I, uh, I ran into sage and Nick.

Victor: Hello, sage.

Sage: Hello, Victor.

Victor: How are you? All right.

Sage: We were rushing home just in time so faith could open up her gifts.

Victor: Oh, yeah? I'll be damned. Well, someone like Nick, you know, is a good boy. He would probably take that as a sign that you're serious about reconciliation.

Sage: What? What do you mean?

Victor: Just an observation. Adam, on the other hand, would not take this at face value. He would question your motives and your endgame.

Sage: Uh, are you warning me away from Adam and Nick both? I'm confused. This is the second time. Why?

Abby: I knew this was gonna happen. I love them all.

Chelsea: Well, I think this will help you decide.

Victoria: [Gasps] Oh!

Abby: Oh, my gosh. That's it. That's it. This is my dream on paper. This woman is a genius!

Chelsea: No, it's not done yet. I still have to work on the beadwork and shorten the train. Um, oh, and we still have to discuss veil options.

Abby: I'm never gonna want to take this off.

Victoria: I think Ben will have other ideas.


Abby: I-I love this dress. I love Ben Rayburn. And I cannot wait to get married and start our new life together.

Stitch: You start out and everything's just so shiny and bright. It's all about love and the future.

Dylan: Mm-hmm.

Stitch: It's amazing how fast things can just go to hell. Uh -- Dyl-- I'm sorry, man. Don't -- don't listen to me, man. You -- you and s-- you and Sharon, you're solid, okay? You -- you got a beautiful kid, you know, a great family. This -- this will never happen to you.

Dylan: Look, I know exactly where you're coming from. You know, just when you think things can't get better, life pulls the rug out from underneath you. That's what happened with me and Chelsea...and Connor. And, uh, you know how long it took me to get past all that stuff.

Stitch: Yeah.

Dylan: But I learned from it. You know, happy as I am, I'm a realist, okay? This marriage thing, it's -- it's living and it's growing, and you can't take anything for granted. You got to put the love in, you got to put the time in to build a solid foundation.

Stitch: I'm definitely gonna get it right with Abby.

Dylan: Good. I can tell you one thing. I mean, you know, God forbid if anything happened between Sharon and me, she wouldn't keep me from my son.

Sage: Do you think I'm going to hurt Nick? Is that -- is that it? Because we're both hurting, Victor. We both lost a child, and we're figuring out how to work through this. Do you have a problem with me talking to Adam?

Adam: No, no, no. He didn't mean anything by it.

Sage: Because we have -- we have history. We were married.

Victor: Yes. Yes. In name only.

Sage: He delivered Christian. He understands where I'm coming from.

Victor: Let me give you some advice.

Sage: If it's another offer to relocate, I'm good. What do you want? Do you -- do you want me with Nick? Do you want me gone?

Victor: I just want you to be happy. That's all. Really.

Sage: I'm gonna leave you two to talk.

Victor: All right. Thank you.

Adam: Sorry. That was not subtle, dad.

Victor: Yeah, well, we have a more immediate problem, son. It is Noah and the Santoris.

Marisa: Can we talk?

Noah: Um, I'm a little busy, um, right now.

Marisa: Of course.

Noah: Uh, hey, Marisa. No, I'm sorry. Um, yeah, of course. What -- what can I do for you?

Marisa: How do you do it, focus on work? I'm -- I'm so distracted.

Noah: Well, I guess it's just a matter of focus. I'm sorry. What's -- what's got you distracted?

Marisa: You.

Noah: Me?

Marisa: I think about you.

Noah: You think about me?

Marisa: Yes. I'm worried about you.

Noah: Don't be worried about me. I can take care of myself.

Marisa: Luca's family, they're -- they're dangerous. Maybe -- maybe you should quit. [Sighs] Go back to the underground.

Noah: Go back to the underground. Where it's safe?

Marisa: Nobody gets in the Santoris' way. What's happening here, I don't want you involved in whatever's gonna play out.

Noah: Which is why I need to be here, because I understand the danger. I know who's at risk. Do you get that?

Luca: What's taking so long, Marisa? Where's the paperwork?

Noah: You know what? If there's a problem, I can --

Luca: No problem. Just ready for the workday to be over. The sooner we're done here, the sooner we can get back to the hotel.

Marisa: Luca.

Luca: What? What can I say? I'm a happy husband.

Very happy.

Noah: You know, uh, I think this is what you were looking for.

Stitch: Oh, no. You guys are done already? I wanted to give some input.

Chelsea: Oh, no. You'll just have to wait to see her walking down that aisle. I will keep you posted on the progress.

Abby: Yes. Thank you. I love it.

Victoria: Mwah.

Chelsea: Bye.

Stitch: Hey.

Abby: Hey. Did you have any luck with Jenna?

Stitch: That'd be a big, fat no.

Abby: I'm sorry.

Stitch: It's all right. She's not gonna budge, so I'm letting it go.

Abby: Just like that?

Stitch: Look, Jenna's in control. She doesn't want me to see max, so there's not a lot I can do. But what I can do is promise that our marriage, our family, will always come first. I may be missing my son, but I am not gonna let Jenna's anger take away from our wedding day.

Abby: No. No, we won't.

Dylan: Stitch is trying to make the best of the situation because that's who he is, but I know that he's going through a tough time. And, of course, you know, he's not gonna say anything.

Sharon: Well, if anything ever happened to us -- and I'm not saying that it will, thank God -- I swear I would never put you through that. I would never keep your child from you.

Dylan: That promise is mutual.

[Knock on door]

Sage: What's all this?

Faith: We're moving in.

Victor: Son, you need to focus. You need to close the door on sage. Enough of the hand-holding and soul-searching.

Adam: She's suffering.

Victor: You're flirting with disaster, son.

Adam: No, I'm not flirting with disaster. I'm offering her a little thing called compassion.

Victor: Are you kidding me? You're stirring her up!

Adam: So you chase her off?

Victor: Our plan is to get rid of the Santoris, okay? Remember? But it involves sacrifice. It'll be Marisa.

Adam: And you think Noah's gonna go along with that?

Victor: He will learn a hell of a lesson.

Adam: That's your thing, right? You -- you really think you can control everything, don't you, and just, you know, make people forget about what they care about?

Victor: Don't forget that you are Christian's father.

Adam: [Sighs]

Victor: And don't forget what it would mean if people found out about the paternity. You don't want that to happen, do you? Wouldn't be good. The Newman family is gonna rise again to the top out of the ashes. No one intimidates me, and no one scares me. You got that?

Next on "the young and the restless"...

Phyllis: The man that I married and fell in love with and planned a life with was not the man I thought he was.

Mariah: You can't have them both, Marisa.

Marisa: You're right. It's time I set things straight with Noah.

Adam: What do you say we work together, put ourselves at the top of the food chain? How's that sound?
