Episode # 11217 ~ Dina shocks Jack; Mariah questions her future with Devon; Scott solidifies his alliance with Victor.

Provided By Suzanne

Jack: Good morning.

Nikki: Well, good morning to you.

Jack: So I hope you slept well. I hope the guest room was comfortable.

Nikki: Oh, it was so cozy. I was asleep before my head hit the pillow.

Jack: Still feeling any pain?

Nikki: Believe it or not, it has pretty much dissipated. I haven't felt this good in ages.

Jack: Wow. That's tremendous news.

Nikki: Yeah. My hands are still a little bit stiff, but that will start to fade. I am just so happy that the concert and all the stress that went with it is over. Thanks again for getting me out of there. I couldn't have stood another second at that party after what happened with victor and Nicholas.

Jack: Well, the rest of the world didn't realize anything was amiss. They think the Newmans knocked it out of the park last night. All the press on the benefit is fantastic, and this picture is everywhere.

Nikki: Oh. If only that were real, huh? It's all just a big lie, a lie I perpetuated. But the truth can't stay hidden forever.

Ashley: Well, hello, victor. Hi, there.

Victor: Well. Nice to see you.

Ashley: You, too.

Victor: Care to join me for breakfast?

Ashley: Oh, I can't. I have a meeting with a business associate. But once again, congratulations on last night. It was really a terrific event.

Victor: A lot of that is due to our daughter.

Ashley: Oh, please. She wouldn't mind hearing that a couple hundred more times.

Victor: Well, I will tell her how much I appreciate her loyalty.

Ashley: Unlike other members of your family that aren't quite as loyal? I saw nick and Nikki. They left early last night.

Victor: Hmm. Anyway, please have a seat. The concert was a success.

Ashley: Uh-oh. There you go again. Don't do that.

Victor: Don't do what?

Ashley: You're shutting down. I know you. Before you tell me it's none of my business, you remember what affects you affects Abby, and therefore it does affect me. Plus I do care.

Victor: I'm glad you do.

Ashley: So what's going on with your family? Why did Nikki leave you here last night?

Tessa: Good morning.

Mariah: Hey. Morning.

Tessa: Thanks again for letting me stay over and lending me something to wear since I'm going to be avoiding the main house for a while.

Mariah: [Chuckles] Yeah, it's the least I can do considering I blubbered all over you all night. I-I can't believe that I did that, crying about Devon. Kind of mortified, actually.

Tessa: Hey, don't be. I'm glad I could be there for you. Now, the question is, will you tell Devon everything you told me, or are you gonna keep pretending everything's fine?

Scott: Where's victor?

Abby: He's not here yet. But when he does arrive, you better be prepared for anything.

Scott: Why? What'd I miss?

Abby: Well, he could still be ticked off about what happened with nick at the party last night, or he could only want to go over our projects, which is what I just delivered.

Scott: You know, I don't know what went down, either, but it seems that your family can be pretty Shakespearean. How is it that you and your dad can act like it's business as usual today? I mean, don't you think he'd want to discuss what hap--

Abby: I'm sorry. Don't you get it? It's not up to me. And this isn't your family, so back off.

Scott: If victor needs me, he knows where to find me.

Abby: Scott, wait. [Sighs] I am sorry. You didn't deserve that.

Scott: [Sighs] Neither did you. I could have been more sensitive. I can be pretty, uh, direct sometimes.

Abby: Sometimes?

Scott: Listen, if this was my family, I'd want to hash it out. I-I wouldn't want to let it fester.

Abby: Yeah, I would love to, believe. I-I would. But that's just not how my family works. When I asked my dad and Victoria what happened last night, they refused to explain.

Scott: You feel like you're on the outside.

Abby: And I know what you're gonna say. You're gonna say I'm making this all about me.

Scott: No, no, no, no.

Abby: Oh, you accused me of doing that before.

Scott: I wasn't trying to criticize you, okay? It was an observation, and I can see that this is not easy for you.

Abby: Oh.

Scott: We may not see eye to eye on everything. But I could tell that you -- you killed yourself making that event perfect for victor and Nikki. Unlike your brother, who went out of his way to find trouble. So I hope that when you do talk to victor that you can toot your own horn a little, make sure it's clear that he shouldn't take you for granted.

Graham: I'm sorry jack didn't spend as much time with you last night as you were led to expect.

Dina: Where in the world are my reading glasses? I know I-I had them here last night. They were right inside my purse.

Graham: Is it possible you left them at the concert pavilion or the restaurant?

Dina: Well, I suppose so.

Graham: Think about when and where you may have taken them out of your purse.

Dina: Uh, well, the last time I checked, it was at the concert briefly.

Graham: Keep looking here. I'll go check the venue. Perhaps they just fell under your seat.

Dina: Uh, you would do that for me?

Graham: Of course.

Dina: Oh.

Graham: I don't want you to worry.

Dina: Oh, thank you. I love the way you take such good care of me.

Graham: I try. I try.

Dina: You certainly do. And I really wish you had been at the event last night, especially since jack proved to be such a disappointing escort.

Graham: I promise to never disappoint you.

Dina: Oh, I know you never will. Mm-hmm.

Nikki: What great service.

Jack: Well, give it a try. Tell me what you think.

Nikki: Thank you very much. Mmm. It's good.

Jack: Okay, it's... not good.

Nikki: It is too good! What is the matter with you? It's delicious.

Jack: I don't know what I did wrong.

Nikki: I have decided that everything up here at the cabin is better. The quiet, the trees, the lake, the breakfast. [Laughs] The ranch has been so oppressive lately. Up here it's just nice and quiet and relaxing.

Jack: I feel the same way. I actually didn't realize how much I needed to get away.

Nikki: Yeah, you've been dealing with a lot yourself. Things at work and Dina being back in town.

Jack: No, no, no, no. I don't want you worrying about me. I will always land on my feet, just like you.

Nikki: Uh, I wasn't quite too sure-footed last night.

Jack: Well, you didn't let it show.

Nikki: You know, I thought the concert itself would be my only challenge last night. Boy, was I wrong. I assumed it would be easy to play the perfect, happy family.

Jack: Well, this time the family didn't all line up just right.

Nikki: This charade really took Nicholas to his breaking point. And then victor... I have a lot to face when I get home.

Jack: Yeah, speaking of that, uh, as much as I'd like to linger here, after breakfast we should talk about getting back to town.

Nikki: Back to reality.

Jack: You ready to face what's waiting for you?

Nikki: No.

Ashley: A fist fight?

Victor: It was one punch. That's all.

Ashley: What could possibly make you want to get physically violent with your own child?

Victor: My son Nicholas was angry with me because I wouldn't listen to him. He wanted me to stop Nikki from performing last night.

Ashley: Well, that doesn't make any sense. Why would he want that?

Victor: It doesn't make any sense to you because you don't know that Nikki's M.S. Had flared up just before the concert.

Ashley: Oh. No.

Victor: But I didn't know about that. She kept it from me. Otherwise I would never have encouraged her to perform.

Ashley: Of course you wouldn't have. But why did she keep that from you?

Victor: I guess to prove a point.

Ashley: You'd think that after all the years you've been together, there'd be nothing left to prove.

Victor: One would think that. And I have a feeling that your brother jack whispered sweet nothings into her ear, tried to convince her that he cares more about her wellbeing than I do.

Ashley: Nikki's friendship does mean a lot to jack. Now that I understand what was going on, I can see why he made a point of getting her out of here last night. Although I'm pretty sure you weren't too thrilled about that.

Victor: So your brother left with my wife. Boy, that is not how I imagined the evening would end.

Ashley: Oh, my business associate is here. I'm sorry you're going through all this with your family. But I know that you and Nikki are gonna get through it because you always do. It was good seeing you.

Victor: Same to you.

Ashley: Bye.

Victor: Bye.

Ashley: Hi. How are you?

Dina: Ravi! What a surprise to see you here.

Ravi: I'm surprised you can see me at all.

Dina: Uh, what do you mean, dear?

Ravi: I believe these are yours.

Dina: Oh, thank heavens! Yes, yes! Where in the world did you find them?

Ravi: Uh, backseat of my car. They must have fallen out of your purse last night.

Dina: Oh, yes. Well, you are a real life saver. I thought I was losing my mind.

Ravi: Oh, I'm -- I'm the same way.

Dina: Really?

Ravi: If I lose visual contact with my phone for more than a few minutes, I get anxious, too. One time I turned my whole office upside down before realizing it was in my jacket pocket.

Dina: [Chuckles] Oh, for heaven sakes. You really know how to make a lady feel good about herself.

Ravi: I'm glad I could help.

Dina: I must admit I was very distracted last night. Have you heard from jack?

Ravi: Uh, I'm afraid I haven't. Is everything okay?

Dina: No, no, everything is not okay. I can't get over how rude he was, I mean, just leaving me alone at the venue without so much as a word.

Ravi: Well, I'm sure he had a good reason.

Dina: Well, it sure was distracting.

Ravi: He knew you were in good hands.

Dina: Oh, yes, I know I was. And thank you to you and Ashley for taking such good care of me.

Ravi: We were happy to see you home.

Dina: Yes, well, please tell that lovely lady what a remarkable young friend she has in you. And when you see my son, you tell him to come and see me, won't you?

Ravi: I will.

Dina: Good, because I want to know what's going on with my son.

Jack: Ready?

Nikki: Yeah. Nicholas called several times. I want to let him know that I'm okay.

Jack: I'm sure victor left you a few messages, as well.

Nikki: Well, I'm not replying to those. What we need to say to each other we have to say in person. Shall we go?

Jack: Yeah. Come on.

Victor: Hi, sweetheart.

Abby: Dad, hi. I was beginning to wonder if you were gonna come in today.

Victor: [Sighs] I just came in to deal with a few things and, um, to tell you something.

Abby: Okay. What did you want to tell me?

Victor: I'm so proud of how you helped put this whole benefit together last night. You're the only one of my children who was willing to help, and I will not forget that.

Abby: Dad, um... I don't know what's going on between you and nick, but, well, maybe if we had asked him to help, maybe, um --

Victor: It wouldn't have made a difference. Your brother doesn't mean anything to me anymore.

Abby: What? W-what does that mean?

Victor: He is no longer my son.

Abby: Why?

Victor: I'd rather not discuss that right now.

Abby: Okay, but, dad, I think we need to talk about it, because clearly there's something going on between you and Nikki, too. And Victoria seems clued in, but she won't tell me anything.

Victor: Yeah. Let's not talk about it, sweetheart.

Abby: Dad, listen, I know that I can't force you to talk, but... can you at least try to understand what it's like for me? I feel like nick and Victoria, they're in this one family, the real Newmans, and then I'm over here in the other category.

Victor: Whatever happened between me and the rest of the family, it has nothing to do with you and me. I can rely on you. I trust you. That means more to me than I can tell you right now.

Tessa: Hey, I-I didn't mean to put you on the spot before.

Mariah: No, you -- you didn't. I just don't know what I'm gonna do. And I'm not used to having a close friend to talk to about this stuff.

Tessa: Well, I get that. I-I just want to be there for you like you've been with me. So if you want to talk through the Devon stuff more, that's awesome. And if you want me to shut my big, old mouth and disappear, then that's cool, too.

Mariah: No, no, I don't. I want you to stay. I-I knew what I was getting into when Devon and I started dating. He'd been divorced from Hilary for all of two seconds. I don't know. I just... I thought we had a good thing. Oh, my god. This is so embarrassing.

Tessa: Oh, my god, no.

Mariah: This is so embarrassing! Never mind. Please never mind.

Tessa: Hey, hey, hey, hey. It's me.

Mariah: I just wanted to matter to him as much as he matters to me.

Tessa: That's not embarrassing. You have to tell Devon this.

Mariah: I don't want to come off as -- as insecure or pathetic, which is absolutely not who I am. Or maybe it is! Maybe it is who I am. Maybe that's who I am now.

Tessa: Hey, hey, no. No, you are smart and funny, and you hide behind those walls of yours, but you have a huge heart. No one should make you feel like you're their second choice, because you are incredible. Completely incredible.

Mariah: You mean that?

Tessa: Yeah. Yeah, I do.

[Knock on door]

Mariah: Uh, who is it?

Noah: Devon!

Devon: And Noah!

Noah: Hey.

Devon: Hello!

Tessa: Hi.

Mariah: Hey!

Devon: Hi.

Mariah: I didn't expect to, um, see you two this morning.

Noah: That's why they call it a surprise.

Devon: That's right. And one that comes bearing coffee.

Mariah: Oh, great.

Devon: Here you go.

Mariah: Hi.

Devon: How you doing?

Mariah: Good to see you.

Devon: You, too. And hey, Tessa.

Tessa: Ooh.

Devon: I've already been getting phone calls about your performance.

Tessa: Uh, good or bad? Or do I not want to know?

Devon: No, you definitely want to know, because people can't wait to hear your first single.

Tessa: Wait. Really?

Devon: Yes. Really. I want to get you in the studio as soon as possible.

Tessa: Well, uh, I will get back to practicing right after I finish this coffee and maybe scrounge up a doughnut or something.

Noah: Ooh, ooh, idea. How about we get breakfast at the club? I'm talking eggs, OJ.

Tessa: Yeah, that sounds delicious. Uh, do you want to come, too? And Devon?

Mariah: Um, you guys go. Go ahead. It's -- it's fine.

Tessa: Okay, well, I'll catch up with you later.

Mariah: Yeah.

Noah: Bye, guys.

Devon: See you. Enjoy.

Noah: Yeah, of course.

Devon: See you. Hey, you.

Mariah: Hi.

Devon: How you doing? I missed you last night a lot. I, uh, I know you have to work today, but I was hoping we can get dinner later if you want to.

Mariah: Uh, yeah, maybe.

Devon: Um, between you not wanting to hang out with me after the party last night and how you're acting right now, I'm kind of picking up a vibe.

Mariah: Um, what vibe?

Devon: I don't know. It seems just like something's going on between us. If something's bothering you, you know you can tell me anything.

Victor: I just want to tell the two of you that I'm expecting some great things from you as we approach the second half of the year.

Abby: I can't wait to get started.

Victor: Darling, would you mind? I'd like a word alone with him.

Abby: Um, okay, yeah. Sure.

Victor: Scott, I want to thank you for finding that venue for last night's concert.

Scott: Sure.

Victor: It was a hell of a success. And then I'm sure you would like to talk about the unfortunate incident last night. I'm sure you heard about it.

Scott: I don't know all the details, but I-I do know nick was out of line.

Victor: That's putting it mildly.

Scott: Look, the evening was supposed to be about Nikki and what you were doing for her, not nick.

Victor: Yeah. Effective immediately, my son Nicholas will no longer enjoy the privilege of being a Newman.

Scott: If that's what you think you have to do, then, uh, who am I to judge?

Victor: Increasingly, I feel that people are against me.

Scott: I'm not, and, uh, neither is Abby.

Victor: Yeah. I'm counting on that, Scott.

Nikki: I will have bonnie launder and return your clothes to you as soon as possible.

Jack: Keep them. They look better on you, anyway.

Nikki: You think? I thought so, too. Thanks.

Jack: I know you can handle victor on your own, but if you need reinforcements, I can stick around.

Nikki: No, that would just make things worse.

Jack: I'm worried only about you. For the first time in a very long time, I see you at peace. I don't want victor blowing that all to hell, pulling you back when you're on the road to recovery.

Nikki: It's not gonna happen. I promise.

Jack: Okay.

Nikki: Well, I guess you better go. Thanks again for everything.

Jack: You know, I haven't asked. How are you gonna handle things? Victor's gonna have a lot of questions about where you've been, what you're thinking.

Nikki: I know. And I'll be ready for him. I'm not gonna forget a damn thing.

Noah: Hey, listen, um, thank you for being so chill with me cutting out last night.

Tessa: Yeah.

Noah: Did you have fun with Mariah?

Tessa: Yeah. We had some excellent girl talk.

Noah: Good.

Tessa: So, you.

Noah: Hmm?

Tessa: Taking me out last night and this morning?

Noah: Look, I-I know that I was the one that suggested that we take things slow, but, um, I just keep finding myself wanting to spend more time with you.

Tessa: So, slow.

Noah: Hmm.

Tessa: But not too slow.

Noah: Something like that.

Tessa: Yeah?

Mariah: I feel like Hilary comes first with you and I'm miss congeniality.

Devon: Well, I don't know why you feel like that. Um, I've been over Hilary.

Mariah: I know you say that. And I want to believe it. I do. But I see the way that you look at her. I see the way that you talk about her. Fourth of July, last night. And truthfully, all of the time, Devon. I feel like there's unfinished business between the two of you.

Devon: I don't think I would call it that.

Mariah: Then what would you call it?

Devon: Hilary and I share a lot of history, right? I think we're always gonna have a connection because of that. But, you know, we can't just erase each other from our lives. With that being said, Hilary is in my past. I divorced that woman because I was tired of being lied to and manipulated, and that literally is night and day from the kind of person that you are.

Mariah: So that's why you're with me? Because I'm the anti-Hilary?

Devon: I mean, you know what I'm -- you know what I'm trying to say, right?

Mariah: Look, it was easy for us to start dating. We were already friends. And I think deep down, you liked the idea that it would give Hilary an especially big cow if you started dating me of all people.

Devon: Where is this all coming from?

Mariah: I hate saying this. I hate even thinking it. But I need an honest answer from you. How do you actually feel about me?

Ashley: Of course I will get back to you later. Thanks so much. Hey.

Ravi: Hey.

Ashley: What are you doing here?

Ravi: Oh, I knew you had a meeting here. I thought I might catch you.

Ashley: It can't wait till I get back to the office?

Ravi: Uh, yeah, this -- this is more personal than professional.

Ashley: Oh?

Ravi: Ashley, this is about your mother.

Dina: Ashley's lovely friend Ravi just returned my glasses. Isn't that wonderful?

Graham: How nice of him. Uh, where were they?

Dina: In his car. [Chuckles]

Graham: That happens to the best of us.

Dina: Yes, I'm sure it does. I'm so sorry I put you through such a wild goose chase.

Graham: No, no sorry necessary. I'm just glad we averted a crisis there.

Dina: Well, I was so thrown by needing a ride home from Ashley and Ravi.

[Knock on door]

Dina: I'll get it.

Jack: Hello, Mother.

Dina: Well, it's about time. What do you have to say for yourself?

Victor: Home at last, huh?

Nikki: Good morning.

Victor: It isn't.

Nikki: If you're expecting me to apologize...

Victor: For walking out on the accolades they were giving you?

Nikki: I got a great deal of praise.

Victor: You certainly did, deservedly so.

Nikki: I really didn't know if I could do it.

Victor: So you proved a point.

Nikki: I did my best.

Victor: Well, you played magnificently.

Nikki: We raised a great deal of money.

Victor: Yeah. Because of your standing in the community and because it was for a very good cause.

Nikki: Well, victor, you planned the evening, and it was just beautiful, very elegant.

Victor: Thank you. The dress looked great on you.

Nikki: Probably because you had it designed for me.

Victor: Well, it looked very good.

Nikki: Thanks.

Victor: But you left the celebration without a word to me.

Nikki: I just had to get out of there, victor, after everything that happened.

Victor: Did you have to stay out all night?

Nikki: I needed some space to think, get some perspective.

Victor: Hmm. Did you get some perspective?

Nikki: Yes, I did.

Victor: Well, I see things more clearly now, as well.

Victor: Did you see the picture of our family in the news?

Nikki: I did.

Victor: Looked like a pretty happy group, didn't it?

Nikki: Well, if I didn't know it was a charade, I would think so, but seeing as it is a charade, it looked pretty sad.

Victor: Yeah, it became sad because of what our son did.

Nikki: Please don't bad-mouth Nicholas. Let's stop that.

Victor: You were upset about it.

Nikki: Yes, but I would never threaten him with cutting him out of my life.

Victor: He tried to ruin the concert. Our own son.

Nikki: He was trying to protect me. I don't know why you can't understand that.

Victor: I would have handled things differently had you been honest with me about your M.S. Flare-up.

Nikki: Victor, I don't want to rehash this, and I'm not gonna let you turn this around on me, especially when my sins pale in comparison to yours.

Victor: I thought after the concert, we had come to kind of an understanding, that we would start to rebuild our life together.

Nikki: Oh, victor.

Victor: How do you feel physically, by the way?

Nikki: Much better.

Victor: Glad to hear that.

Nikki: Yes, I plan on getting a lot of rest and taking a break for a while from the piano.

Victor: Maybe you can ask jack Abbott to introduce you to a new hobby, you know, one that doesn't strain your system as much.

Nikki: Yes, obviously that's your way of telling me you knew that I left with jack.

Victor: And how the hell do you think I felt about that?

Nikki: I really didn't think about it, victor. I needed a friend, and I didn't want to have an argument over the phone.

Victor: Well, don't worry about it anymore, okay? I'm not gonna argue with you about the likes of jack Abbott. In fact, I don't care anymore.

Devon: Mariah, my feelings for you, they're very real, okay? Let me ask you something. Do you have any idea what you've done for my life by being with me?

Mariah: No, not really.

Devon: Let me tell you, you helped me find happiness, okay? When I was at my lowest point, you lifted me up, and you put a smile on my face, and you made me laugh. You told me your honest opinion about everything whether I wanted to hear it or not because I think you really cared about what was best for me, and you had my back. You don't tear me down. You literally build me up every single day, so to think that you feel less than or second to anybody is -- it's the last thing I ever wanted to make you feel.

Mariah: Wow. That was some speech.

Devon: It's far from a speech. It's just how I feel. I really do want you to be the one standing by my side. Will you be there?

Mariah: Yeah, I will.

Noah: So how are you feeling?

Tessa: Oh, like I'm never gonna eat again. That was one gigantic breakfast.

Noah: That's, um, that's not what I mean.

Tessa: No?

[Both laugh]

Noah: How are you feeling about, you know, you and me?

Tessa: You know, I'm -- I'm just taking it day by day.

Noah: Yeah?

Tessa: Yeah.

Noah: And today?

Tessa: I'm happy.

Noah: I'm happy, too.

Tessa: [Chuckles]

Noah: I'd really like to see where this goes.

Ashley: Okay, Ravi, it's really sweet of you to return my mother's reading glasses personally, but I don't understand why it's so important that you had to do it right away.

Ravi: No, it wasn't about the glasses. It was about the way she was acting. She was stressed out, she was agitated, asking a lot of questions about jack.

Ashley: Well, after last night, I think we all have questions for jack.

Ravi: No, I understand, but she seemed really worked up over what happened.

Ashley: I hope she didn't go off on you.

Ravi: No, no, she was -- she was perfectly charming with me.

Ashley: Okay, you said that she referred to jack as graham and that she seemed really confused last night?

Ravi: Yeah, that was my impression.

Ashley: So what are you suggesting, exactly? Do you think there's something serious going on with my mother?

Dina: I expect some answers, jack!

Graham: You shouldn't have run off on your mother like that, jack. You promised me you'd take good care of her.

Jack: I came here to apologize, and I don't appreciate you talking as though I left my mother alone on the street. She was at a private party at Newman tower with plenty of people that she knew, among them her daughter, who got her back here safely.

Dina: That's not the point! We made plans! And you should have stuck to them!

Jack: I'd like a moment alone with my mother, if you don't mind.

Dina: You know, you invited me to this event, and then you just dumped me right there and take off for god knows where.

Jack: I'm sorry.

Dina: You should be. How dare you treat me like this.

Ashley: Ravi, please don't hold back. What do you think's going on with my mother? Tell me.

Ravi: [Sighs] I've only witnessed a couple small incidents, but have you or anyone else in your family ever noticed anything that would lead you to believe she was having issues?

Ashley: Yes. My sister Traci said something after that family dinner we had. She thought mother was acting different. But, to me, I mean, in business, she seems like she's still on top of her game and she's still the same strong and feisty woman that she always was.

Ravi: Okay. Okay, then, just chalk it up as nothing. You know, normal every-day aging.

Ashley: Well, she is getting older, right? So maybe things are just getting to her like, you know, they didn't get to her before.

Ravi: Yeah, I agree. Totally. And I didn't mean to overstep. I would just feel remiss if I didn't mention it.

Ashley: Mnh-mnh. I'm glad that you told me. I'm gonna keep my eyes open and see if I see anything out of the ordinary. Thank you.

Jack: Things were a little tense between the Newmans and Nikki last night.

Dina: Nikki?

Jack: She asked me to take her out of the party.

Dina: Why in the world would she do that?

Jack: I can't get into the details. It's private. She's going through a lot right now.

Dina: Oh, I see. So that's why you were watching her so closely.

Jack: When she asked for my help, I couldn't say no. Believe me, if it wasn't important, I wouldn't have left with her.

Dina: So you helped her by sneaking her out of the party her husband threw for her in her honor. Victor's going to be furious.

Jack: I can deal with that.

Dina: Oh, sure.

Jack: Won't be the first time I ticked him off. I promise it won't be the last.

Dina: Hmm.

Jack: I don't want to see Nikki get hurt.

Dina: Oh. I see. I don't know what you're thinking, jack. What is it?

Jack: That a friend of mine needed help.

Dina: A married friend.

Jack: For now.

Dina: Oh, ho, ho. You're playing with fire, jack.

Jack: I know what I'm doing, mother.

Dina: No, you don't know what you're doing! You're about ready to jump into the flames! Oh, and by that expression, I can see that's exactly what you want!

Jack: You know what? Maybe you're right.

Dina: Mm-hmm.

Jack: Maybe I have been playing it a little too safe. After all, you never let a little fact like a man being married get in the way of your being happy.

Scott: Keeping it warm for him?

Abby: I'm just checking over this report. You?

Scott: I just wanted to run some numbers by him, but, uh, it can wait.

Abby: Scott, um... what did my father want to discuss with you?

Scott: Uh, it was strange. But it seemed like he wanted my reassurance that I supported his decision.

Abby: Decision?

Scott: Cutting nick out of his life and all that goes with it.

Abby: Oh, I'm surprised he told you about that.

Scott: Yeah, me, too.

Abby: I-I don't know why he feels compelled to do this. I mean, if it's about disinheriting nick, what does it really matter? Nick, Victoria, and I got millions from that lawsuit years ago.

Scott: That's right. You, uh, you sued victor.

Abby: We thought he was mishandling our trust funds, but, you know, now we have enough money to live on forever, so what can he really take away from nick?

Scott: You know, something tells me it's better that neither one of us really knows what victor's up to.

Victor: I have tried to apologize for my involvement with Chloe. I think I have atoned for my mistakes, at least attempted to. I've told you over and over again how much I love you.

Nikki: I know that you love me, victor. I love you, too. I always will. But I just don't look at you the same as I did. I... I can't seem to get past what you've done.

Victor: You've made that abundantly clear. I know it has been difficult for you to pretend that you and I are still a couple. So I've decided to make it easier for you. I will no longer hide the fact that you and I are not together anymore. You're the love of my life. But if that is no longer of interest to you, then I bid you farewell.

[Door closes]

Nikki: [Sobs]

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

Victor: I'm very grateful that you solved a problem that your father created.

Nick: I did that to protect you and this family.

Nikki: If I closed my eyes, I'd swear it was your father!

Hilary: "Air as much of that material as you see fit." That was a direct quote from victor.
