Stitch: Hi.

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here together in the sight of god to join this man and this woman in holy matrimony. Now, Abby and Ben are here with their friends, their family, to publicly declare their love for one another.

Phyllis: [Gasps]

Jack: Ash!

Abby: Oh, my god.

Stitch: Give her some room. Hey. Hey. Hey. Ash, ash, it's Ben. Can you hear me? Ashley.

Ashley: Ben?

Gil: Going somewhere, Billy?

Billy: Gil, what -- what the hell are you doing here?

Gil: You couldn't duck my calls forever, Abbott. You owe me, and it's time to pay.

Billy: I'm not avoiding you. I'm just late for a wedding. We can do this. Just not now. Excuse me.

Gil: No, excuse me.

Billy: Hey, hey!

Gil: We're doing this now!

Ashley: What happened?

Jack: Ashley, you fainted.

Ashley: [Sighs]

Abby: Mom, do you know where you are?

Ashley: Honey, of course I know where I am.

Stitch: Okay, just -- just sit still for a second, all right?

Ashley: I'm not gonna stay on the ground. I don't care how great the renovation is. I'm okay. I'm okay.

Abby: You can't just pop back up.

Victor: Nicholas, kindly call an ambulance.

Nick: I already did.

Ashley: Oh, please. No! No, stop. You're all being ridiculous.

Jack: Ashley, you passed out. You need medical attention.

Dr. Neville: I'm right here. And in my professional opinion, the woman forgets to eat. I've seen it before at the lab. She has low blood sugar. We get her some of those canapés and some water, she'll be fine.

Ashley: Thank you. I'm fine.

Stitch: Okay, no and no. Look, we can postpone.

Ashley: Mnh-mnh.

Stitch: Let's get you to an ER just as a precaution.

Ashley: Nope. Nope.

Abby: You can't pretend like nothing happened.

Ashley: Oh, something happened. I'm so sorry. Look, look, I ran myself ragged planning this wedding. That's what happened. I'm not going anywhere until the both of you say "I do," and that's it. I'm fine! I'm fine.

Abby, will you have this man to be your husband? Will you love him, comfort him, honor, and keep him in sickness and in health, forsaking all others, and be faithful to him as long as you both shall live?

Abby: I will.

Ben, will you have this woman to be your wife? Will you love her, comfort her, honor, and keep her in sickness and in health, forsaking all others, and be faithful to her as long as you both shall live?

Stitch: I will.

Abby: [Chuckles]

The rings, please.


Stitch: My best man, the comedian.


Billy: You'll get your money, okay? I'm good for it! You know that!

Gil: If you were good for it, I'd have my money.

Billy: Gil, have I ever stiffed you before?

Gil: You never made a $200,000 bet before.

Billy: Wait, how much? 200 grand? I -- maybe you mis-- maybe you misheard me.

Gil: See, I get the feeling you're not taking this very seriously.

Billy: I'm taking it seriously. I am. Look, you're gonna get your money. You can charge me interest if you want!

Gil: Oh, the juice is running, but I don't think you're gonna like my interest rates.

Billy: Okay, okay, can -- can -- can we just for -- there -- there we go. All right. Gil, I'm an Abbott. We always pay our bills, okay?

Gil: If your fancy family was planning on covering your bets, we'd be doing shots in a bar right now.

Billy: My fancy family is actually upstairs right now in the middle of a wedding. If you'll just let me go and, you know, throw some rice, drink some champagne, I'll get you your money tomorrow. You'll have a fresh sack of cash for new year's.

Gil: [Sighs] See, here's the deal. I want my money because it's mine and I want it. But you don't have it. So now we got to settle for door number two.

Billy: Look, Gil, I don't -- oh, come on, man. Gil, look, it's -- this is just between us, man! There's no need for this!

Gil: I was just trying to scare you, man. But you had to go and run. You forced my hand.

Billy: Look, Gil --

Abby: Oh. [Chuckles]

Stitch: Will it fit?

Abby: It fits.


Abby: Honestly, I wasn't sure that it would. This wedding, this romance, it hasn't exactly been smooth and predictable. We're here. And we made it. And I am so proud to be your wife. When I first met you, um, you were stitch. [Chuckles] Super cute doctor who fixed my mom's ankle on thanksgiving. And then you were my bodyguard. Looking out for me. I think you might have called me high-maintenance or spoiled brat.

Nick: Nailed it.


Abby: But soon after that, I realized that I want to look out for you, too. And one of the scariest moments of my whole life was here in this building when I thought that I had lost you and my mom. But I look at this place [Chuckles] And I look at all of these beautiful people. We made it, and we are doing something crazy together. We're making an us, and I love us.

Stitch: [Chuckles]

Abby: We make no sense together at all, which is why I think we make perfect sense. And I loved you before. And now I love you more. And I always will.

Stitch: [Chuckles] You're better at this than me, so I, um, so I had to write -- I had to write mine out, my -- my vows. Of course, if I learned one thing about you, it's that -- it's kind of fun to be spontaneous, so here we go.


Stitch: Yeah.


Stitch: All right. Yes, I was -- I was your bodyguard, and you were this temper-tantrum little brat.

Abby: [Laughs]

Stitch: But you're the one who saved me. Everybody here, they all know that you got this spark, a spark so bright, you can probably see it from space. And you were there for me when my sister died. You knew when I needed to talk and when I needed to be quiet. I never thought I'd depend on your fire and your quiet. I didn't think that someone could drive me so crazy and make me sane at the same time. [Laughs] [Sighs] I-I didn't think any of this was gonna happen or it was gonna come. So -- and, you know, I think I wrote a pretty good ending, but it's, uh, it's all over the floor right now, so... I'm just gonna say this. I love you, Abby Newman. And I will always love you for the rest of my life.

Those who god has joined together, let no one put asunder. You are now husband and wife.

Abby: [Laughs]


[Guests cheering]

Stitch: Oh, all right. You ready to catch a plane, start our honeymoon?

Abby: What are you? Some kind of barbarian?

Stitch: What?

Abby: Don't you know how weddings work? Toast-toast, hug-hug, cake-cake.

Stitch: [Groans]

Abby: We can't leave now.

Stitch: Why not? Come on.

Traci: Uh-oh. Uh-oh.

Stitch: Yo.

Traci: Is he trying to steal you away?

Stitch: Uh...guilty. [Laughs]

Traci: Come on. You've got to share for just a little while longer. You're gonna have her your whole life.

Stitch: That sounds pretty amazing.

Victor: May I have your attention, please? As the father of the bride, I'd like to say a few words. Today my beautiful daughter's beginning her marriage to a man I respect a great deal. Marriage is what you make of it, what you're imbued with. You need to have loyalty and respect, love. And fortunately for me, I've been married to a lady who possesses all these qualities. In a marriage, one part of the couple sometimes puts in more than the other. Remember to forgive each other. And you, stitch, remember that you are a very lucky dude.

Stitch: I do.

Abby: [Chuckles]

Victor: Let us toast to the happy couple.

All: Cheers.

[Glasses clink]

Dylan: Uh, can I have your attention? I guess it's, uh, my turn. Stitch is a hero. I've been in combat with this guy. [Sighs] And I've seen with my own eyes him risk his life for somebody else. Now, he's done some, uh, pretty crazy things to protect other people. But he never did it for the medals, the attention, or even a thank you. He did it because that's just who he is. I'm proud to be your best friend.

Stitch: Right back at you.

Dylan: He's a soldier. He's a doctor. And now the most heroic title of all -- husband.


Sharon: Because marriage is so dangerous? Is that what you're saying?

Dylan: No, that's not what I was saying! I'm just, you know, I mean --

Stitch: No, no, not at all. He's just saying I'm his hero.

Dylan: That's right. Stitch, you saved the day again, buddy. Thank you.

[Glass clinking]

Victoria: Hi, everyone. I know what a good man Ben is. And I know how well Abby and Ben work together. Somehow they figured it out. But that kindness and that love and that willingness to give, it can't end today. And if you can protect that love and if you can nurture that love... if you can do the work... if you can do the work...

Chelsea: Then you can and will have the life that you two deserve together. So, to stitch and Abby.

All: To stitch and Abby.

Billy: [Grunts]

Gil: [Laughs] What is it with emojis? Grown men sending smiley faces.

Billy: [Wheezing] [Grunts, coughs]

Gil: Okay. That should do it. What the hell? I told you not the face!

Billy: [Grunts]

Gil: Sorry, Abbott. Bit of a miscommunication. But you got the point, right?

Billy: [Breathing heavily]

Gil: Okay. See you tomorrow...with my money.

Billy: [Coughing] [Groans]

Michael: Ladies and gentlemen, your attention, please! I would like to present to you something also new. Dr. And Mrs. Benjamin Rayburn. Give it up!

[Cheers and applause]

Abby: [Chuckles]

Stitch: So, um, what are all these people doing here? Shouldn't they be home? Oh, no, wait. That's us.

Abby: People are watching us.

Stitch: Yeah? Well, we did the toast-toast, hug-hug thing. Can we get out of here now?

Abby: Oh, keep it up, husband. We'll be out of here before you know it.

Stitch: Yeah?

Dr. Neville: So, did you, in fact, find something to eat? Got to keep up your cover story.

Ashley: Excuse me?

Dr. Neville: We're both liars. All that blood sugar nonsense. What have you got? Oh, come on now, Ashley. Doctor-patient privilege and all that. You can't imagine some of the secrets I've kept. I should get a medal. So, miss Abbott, what is ailing you, really? Good talk.

Adam: What do you give it?

Sage: Hmm?

Adam: Six weeks? Six months?

Sage: Ugh. You are so deranged. That's your sister. She's in love.

Adam: She's in love. People get married for love anymore?

Sage: [Chuckles] Yeah, right? How bizarre. No one cheating, lying, pretending. Who would have thought?

Adam: It's completely bizarre.

Sage: [Laughs]

Adam: But you and nick look good, though.

Sage: Yeah, I think we are.

Adam: Good.

Sage: How about you and Chelsea?

Adam: There are no words.

[Cheers and applause]

Abby: Make a break for it?

Stitch: Oh, yeah.

Summer: Hey, it's tradition time.

Abby: What?

Summer: Yeah, it's another dance between the groom and the mother of the bride. It's sweet, you know? Family bonding.

Abby: Mom might not feel up to it.

Summer: Stitch will do all the work. And he probably won't step on your feet.

Abby: [Chuckles]

Stitch: Well, uh, give the people what they want, huh?

Ashley: Okay.

Stitch: Hey.

Ashley: Hi. Congratulations.

Stitch: You should, uh, you should come to the hospital and let me run some tests on you.

Ashley: Would you please stop? Take a look around. You're at your wedding. Just stop being a doctor and be a husband. Okay? You and Abby both deserve that, right?

[Cheers and applause]

Abby: Wow, that was a great dance.

Ashley: Yeah. Now it's time to eat cake, right?

Nikki: That was a lovely speech. Words to live by.

Victor: To ring in the new year. And you know I already live by those words. Last time you and I got married, I said this would be the last wedding. Cheers.

Nikki: Cheers.

Stitch: How about now?

Abby: You want to bolt before the cake?

Stitch: Ashley herself told me to be a husband. That's all I want to do.

Abby: I doubt she meant bail on all the guests.

Stitch: It's a new year's eve party now. No one's gonna miss us. Besides, I want to start 2016 alone with you. Come on.

Abby: [Laughs]

Victoria: Ah. No.

Dylan: What?

Sharon: Hey.


Dylan: Hey.

Faith: Can I have sully's slice since he's not here?

Nick: Oh.

Dylan: One-track mind.

Nick: Yeah.

Sharon: Well, I think we should let the bride and groom have some first.

Nick: The kid knows when she sees the good stuff.

Traci: Now all we need is the happy couple to take their positions. I'll be right back.

Jack: Abby?

Dylan: Stitch! Oh, sorry. Excuse me.

Jack: Abby!

Nick: You know what? I think they may have skipped out on us.

Jack: Ashley, did, uh, did Abby say anything to you?

Ashley: No. I didn't even get to say goodbye.

Stitch: The limo's waiting.

Abby: Everyone upstairs is probably wondering where we are.

Stitch: Yeah? Do you want to go back up, explain to them that I'm a husband with needs?

Abby: Let's leave that part out. I should at least call my mom and wish her a happy new year.

Stitch: Hey, we can go back up. I mean it. Do the cake, the bouquet, all of it. What-- whatever makes you happy.

Abby: This. [Chuckles] You. The thought of starting 2016 alone together. That is what makes me happy. Now, get me out of here, husband.

Stitch: Hmm.

Abby: [Laughs]

Stitch: Let's go. Come on.

Dr. Neville: You know, objectively you're gorgeous. It's true. You're a stunning example of symmetry, genetics, bone structure. It's just remarkable. Somehow right this second, you look like...hell.

Ashley: Well, how charming of you.

Dr. Neville: Charming was when I covered for you before. Now I'm being honest. So should you. Tell me what's wrong, Ashley. Let me help you.

Ashley: You can't help me.

Jack: Ash?

Dylan: I think we can, uh, take off now if it's good enough for the newlyweds.

Sharon: Do you -- you want to leave now?

Dylan: Well, you know, we have our own little baby new year at home. Let's just go stare at him for an hour or two.

Sharon: I can't wait.

Sage: Looks like they're making a break for it. I don't blame them. They have a lot to get home to.

Nick: You doing okay?

Sage: I am now.

Victor: I hate to interrupt.

Nick: [Sighs]

Victor: Beautiful wedding, isn't it?

Nick: Was.

Victor: This is a strong one built to last.

Sage: Well, it's tough to know that till you've been through a rough patch.

Nick: Well, like Vick says, you know, if you put the work in, I think you can make anything happen.

Sage: Did, um, Nicholas tell you that he and faith moved into the penthouse? It's really wonderful.

Victor: Really? That so?

Nick: Yep. Both your sons living in the same building. You can visit us at the same time. We'll save you a drive.

Victor: [Laughs] Yes.

Luca: I've seen that look on my father's face. Convinced he owns the world and everyone in it.

Adam: Well, you know what they say. Pride goeth before the fall. The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

Luca: So our plan is still on?

Adam: Well, hell yes, it's still on.

Luca: Good.

Adam: Have a good night.

Devon: You ready for 2016?

Hilary: Uh, makes me nervous, to be honest, but it can't be worse than 2015, right?

Devon: Way to set the bar low. Cheers.

Neil: You know, seeing Devon and Hilary get along, it doesn't make me want a drink. It makes me want everything back the way it should be. I mean, it was never me that she wanted. She can recall those moments, but not the feelings. And what does that do, Nikki? It leaves the three of us all in limbo. And I wish she would stop thinking that I could be her man.

Nikki: Yeah, well, the heart isn't that easy to control.

Neil: But it can be swayed. And you, my dear, can help make that happen.

Victoria: Billy never showed.

Phyllis: Did he stand you up?

Victoria: Yes, actually. No. I-I told him that I would be too busy to be his date, but you think that he would at least show up for his niece.

Jack: I'm afraid it's my fault, Victoria. Billy and I argued, and he ran off.

Victoria: You argued about what?

Jack: Business, money. He -- he needed a loan.

Victoria: Oh, okay. Well, he did mention that he had some irons in the fire.

Jack: Well, I'm afraid those irons are probably horses that didn't win.

Victoria: He's gambling again.

Phyllis: Nice way to soften that blow.

Jack: I'm sorry, Victoria. Billy is off the rails again, and you and I both know the only person that can help Billy is Billy.

Victoria: You know, I think there are still a few people that haven't had any cake. Excuse me.

Phyllis: Now, why would you do that? Why would you hang your brother out to dry?

Jack: Victoria deserves to know what she's up against, what we're all up against with Billy.

Phyllis: Did you hear her voice? She wanted to forgive him. You did not get off the pills on your own, if I recall.

Jack: No, I had help. But I wanted help. I wanted to get better. And once Billy does, I will be the first person to help get him into recovery, but I'm not gonna lie for him, I'm not gonna cover for him. I got other priorities right now.

Phyllis: That is lovely. What is more important than your brother?

Jack: Right this minute, my sister, Ashley.

Ashley: [Sobbing] Useless. Just... it's useless! All completely... useless!!


Ashley: [Sobs]

Dr. Neville: 15 years of research wasn't useless to Hilary Hamilton. It helped her. It will help other people. It could help you.

Ashley: [Sniffles]

Dr. Neville: For god's sake, miss Abbott, please tell me what's wrong with you. Somewhere in this mess may be a cure.

Ashley: [Sighs] Not for me.

Dr. Neville: You're nothing if not thorough. I'm guessing you left the world of lip gloss and skin cream for a very personal reason. Fair enough. You said you wanted to do something that matters. Well, this matters. What I do matters. And what we can do together will matter. First, why don't you tell me what exactly it is we're up against.

Ashley: I had an aneurysm several months ago.

Dr. Neville: Hmm.

Ashley: And the surgery went perfectly well. You know, until the part where the doctor found something.

Dr. Neville: Tumor? So, who have you told? Your daughter, your siblings, Ben Rayburn?

Ashley: No. Nobody knows but you. And it's gonna stay that way.

Dr. Neville: Well, that's just it. It can't stay that way.

Ashley: Oh, it can. It can and it will, because I do not want my daughter Abby to know about this right now. I want her to be happily married and settled in, you know, before anything comes along and ruins it.

Dr. Neville: That is... the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

Ashley: I don't give a damn what you think. This is my life, and that's how it's going to be.

Dr. Neville: Exactly. It's your life. Your life. It's something worth fighting for, is it not? I mean, it's not some three hanky chick flick where the nobility suffer and die in silence. It's about you. Ashley Abbott.

You're the one that's going to be settled in. You're the one that's going to be living the life that you deserve. I intend to see to it. And I'll do it whether you like it or not.

Abby: Hold on! Hold on!

Stitch: No, just -- all right, hold on, just let me -- hold on one second.

Abby: Whoa.

Stitch: Aha!

Abby: [Laughs]

Stitch: Yeah. Look at that.

Abby: Well, you are a master of threshold crossing.

Stitch: Yeah, heroic maneuvering for my bride.

Abby: Oh, really?

Stitch: Yeah.

Abby: [Chuckles]

Stitch: Still thinking about the reception, aren't you?

Abby: Oh, well, my mom is probably furious.

Abby: Hey, Ashley wants you to be happy.

Abby: Well, then she got her wish.

Stitch: Yeah?

Abby: Because I am insanely happy. We have a marriage, a forever, and a plane to catch. We should probably change. You know, you are on button duty for the next 60 years.

Stitch: Oh, my god. Like I died and went to heaven.

Abby: [Laughs]

Stitch: We, uh... we still have time before the flight.

Abby: Enough time? Happy new year. [Laughs]

And if the sky should fall and tumble right down into the sea there will still be you and me and if everything you touch should turn to gold I-I-I would drink to you because all we really need all I really want from you is a simple love a simple love

Dylan: Ah!

Sharon: [Chuckles]

Dylan: Just checked on him. He's sound asleep. I don't know. Maybe we should wake him up so he doesn't miss the new year.

Sharon: No, don't wake him up. He's gonna be awake before you know it. And besides, he'll have many more new years in his lifetime.

Dylan: Right, but he's gonna miss his chance to say goodbye to 2015.

Sharon: It was a good year, wasn't it?

Dylan: Hmm. It was a great year. I finally got what I wanted and what I wished for. A family of my own. But 2016 is gonna be even better. Hold on. We need to start a countdown of our own.

Sharon: What? Is it new year's now?

Dylan: Doesn't matter. It's our new year's. Come on. All right. All right. You ready?

Sharon: Mm-hmm.

Both: 10...

Dylan: There you go. Good.

Both: 9... 8... 7...

All: 6... 5... 4... 3... 2... 1! Happy new year!

[Cheers and applause]

Victor: I love you, my baby.

Nikki: I love you, too.

Victor: Be right back.

Chelsea: How did we get here?

Adam: Hmm. Hard work, a little bit of luck, and a whole lot of love.

Sage: To the new year.

Nick: To us.

Mariah: What the hell. [Chuckles]

Jack: Happy new year.

Phyllis: I love you, but you make me crazy.

Jack: Ditto.

Phyllis: Well, there you have it. Love and insanity. Happy new year.

Michael: Not to worry, ladies! I'm on my own tonight.


Michael: Oh, that's right!

Traci: Oh, no!

Michael: Pucker up! Mwah! Come here, you!

Victoria: Ah!


Michael: Mwah!


Michael: Happy new year!

Victoria: Happy new year.

Hilary: Happy new year, Devon. I hope this year treats you right.

Devon: You, too.

Neil: Thank you.

Billy: [Coughing] [Grunts] [Coughs] [Grunts] [Coughs]

Neil: Oh, that? Yeah, that. Nikki's a dear friend. She was a huge help when I found out that you and Devon were in love. And you know something? She helped me see that I had no other choice but to move on with my life, which I'm doing. I was grateful to her. She's an incredible lady. Happy new year.

Devon: Sure. Hey. I saw all that, and I know what you're doing.

Neil: You want me to stop?

Devon: Honestly? No.

Neil: Happy new year.

Ashley: Hilary didn't have a tumor. You can't help me.

Dr. Neville: But what if I can?

Ashley: You said yourself. This cure for Hilary was probably a fluke.

Dr. Neville: That was a misguided moment of modesty.

Ashley: Or maybe a misguided moment of honesty.

Dr. Neville: I found a solution for that patient. I'll have find one for you.

Ashley: But what if you can't?!

Dr. Neville: Then you'll die. Your condition is, in theory, fatal. I just don't buy it. In any case, what on earth do you stand to lose by letting me do what I do?

Ashley: [Sighs] Look... [Voice breaking] I don't want to get my hopes up.

Dr. Neville: It has nothing to do with hope. This is hard work. This is the game -- research. It takes energy, it takes commitment, it takes time, it takes money, and it takes risk. So what'll be, cupcake? Hmm? I don't need anybody in my lab who isn't up to the challenge. Are you in or you out?

Ashley: [Sighs] [Stomps foot] Okay. Nobody can know about this.

Dr. Neville: Oh, well...

Ashley: Not one person. You promise me. Promise me?

Dr. Neville: Like I said, I am excellent with secrets. I'll clean up. Oh. Happy new year.

Abby: Now, that is a way to start the new year.

Stitch: Hmm.

Abby: Did we miss midnight?

Stitch: Oh, gosh, we must have. Let's see here. Oh, no. Our flight. We got to go.

Abby: Oh, gosh, we can't miss it.

Stitch: [Sighs] Where's my pants? [Sighs]

Abby: [Chuckles] Happy new year, dr. Rayburn.

Stitch: Well, happy new year, Mrs. Rayburn.

Abby: Oh!

Stitch: [Chuckles]

Billy: [Groans] [Sighs]

Noah: You serious? Nice parking, jackass. [Sighs] Oh.

Marisa: Noah. Noah! Oh, my god. Oh, my god. Billy! Oh, god. Oh, you're okay. Yes. Yes, I need an ambulance. There's been a terrible accident. Please. Please hurry.

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

Paul: I want to find the drive who did this to Billy Abbott.

Victoria: Billy is in that room right now because of the choices that he made! He did this to himself.

Jill: I know that you hate it when I get all emotional like this, so wake up and tell me to shut up.
