Ashley: We need a doctor! My mother's unconscious! I don't know for how long! We need a doctor!

Graham: This is dr. Hummel. He'll be caring for dina.

Dr. Hummel: What are the patient's vital signs?

Ashley: Are you associated with him? Because if you are, I don't want you anywhere near my mother.

Graham: Let him do his job.

Ashley: I'm not letting you near my mother.

Graham: This is dina's private personal physician. He has --

Ashley: I am her daughter. I am the one who has say about her medical care. Please, back away. We need a doctor! Where the hell is a doctor?

Graham: Do you want your mother to get the best care or not?

Dr. Hummel: Ma'am, there is no time to waste. I'm familiar with your mother's medical history. I will take excellent care of her. You have my word.

Ashley: Okay!

Dr. Hummel: We're good?

Graham: We're good. Go.

Ashley: Yes! Go! Mother, jack and traci are on their way! We're gonna take good care of you, I promise. You! Get the hell out of here.

Graham: I'm not going anywhere until dr. Hummel informs me about her condition...

Ashley: You are leaving now!

Graham: ...And we make a plan of action based on her diagnosis!

Traci: Ashley! What's happened?

Ashley: I found mother. She was collapsed on the floor of her suite.

Traci: Oh, no!

Jack: How long was she out?

Ashley: I don't know, jack.

Jack: Did she faint? Did she fall, hit her head?

Ashley: It could have been both those things. I'm not sure. The doctor is seeing her now. We're not gonna know anything until he examines her.

Jack: What is he doing here?

Ashley: He thinks he has some say in her medical care.

Jack: Her family is here now. You can leave. We're taking over. Come on, girls.

Gloria: Good morning, boss. Whoa! Did you sleep here?

Jack: I had to come in early and prepare some paperwork for michael. I want these messengered to him as soon as possible, all right? I'm heading back to the hospital.

Gloria: Why?

Ravi: Hospital? Something happen to ashley?

Jack: No. My mother. She collapsed.

Gloria: Oh, my god. Jack, is it serious?

Jack: We're still waiting on word from the doctors.

Gloria: Anything I can do?

Jack: Yeah. Cancel all my meetings and ashley'S. I'll call with updates.

Gloria: All right.

Nikki: [ Sighs ]

Victor: How do you know that seat isn't taken?

Nikki: Well, victor, to be honest, I don't think many people are even speaking to you these days, so... I took a shot.

Victor: That's a hell of a good way to start the day.

Nikki: Well, how it finishes is what I'm concerned about. I'm not gonna leave until you agree that it's time for you and nicholas to find a way to coexist.

Victor: You could have said that over the phone, all right? You know damn well I didn't start the fight with nicholas.

Nikki: I know that, and you don't need to repeat yourself.

Victor: Apparently I do.

Nikki: Look, victor, what i need is for you and nicholas to end this feud. And the only person I know who is strong enough to step up and make that happen is you.

Nick: Hey! If you're here to see chelsea, she went to the office a while ago.

Sharon: No. I saw the big announcement on "the hilary hour."

Nick: Right. Come in.

Sharon: I came by to see how genoa city's newest and most famous philanthropist is doing.

Nick: You know, I've never felt better. I should have given away a portion of my fortune a long time ago, but I didn't really get the idea until dad siphoned away some money out of one of my checking accounts.

Sharon: That can't be the reason why you gave away millions and millions of dollars.

Nick: No, sharon, I did it because I wanted to do some good. That money's just been sitting there doing nothing except generating even more money.

Sharon: That's really how you viewed your wealth? That's funny, because I always saw it as, um, a nest egg for your children. And now, without even consulting me, the mother of two of those children, it's gone. Nice move, nick.

Ashley: Hi there. Sorry. Maybe this'll help wake you up a little bit.

Traci: [ Yawns ] Thank you. Oh, my gosh. I can't believe I fell asleep.

Ashley: Well, you didn't miss anything.

Traci: Have you been up all night?

Ashley: It's difficult to nap when you've been pacing.

Traci: [ Sighs ] Well, listen, I'm good now if you want to find a place to catch 40 winks.

Ashley: No, I'm okay.

Traci: [ Sighs ]

Ashley: I'm okay. Don't worry.

Traci: How can I not? After what you've been facing the last 12 hours...

Ashley: Thank you for being so protective of me. Listen, I'm not gonna fall apart after what happened last night. I promise you. I'm -- traci... look, I wasn't planning on the world knowing that I'm not john abbott's biological daughter, but I can handle it, even though jack might have his doubts, I have this feeling.

Jack: Doubts about what?

Ashley: [ Sighs ] Never mind. Glad you're back.

Jack: Any news from the doctor?

Ashley: Nope.

Jack: Well, I was sure there'd be word the moment i left. Isn't that how it usually works?

Ashley: There's nothing usual about this. What if graham told the doctor not to talk to us? I mean, what if they've been colluding this whole time?

Traci: Ashley, I checked on dr. Hummel's credentials. He's solid. I even called his office. He has been treating mother since she's been back in genoa city.

Jack: What?

Traci: A doctor of his stature, I just can't see how he would only listen to graham and not consider the family of the patient.

Ashley: You know what, you're much more reasonable that I am. I just don't understand this. I mean, mother's been seeing a doctor since she got back to genoa city? What part of "back off" don't you understand?

Graham: If you want me to go, I'll go, no problem. I'm only here as a courtesy anyway. I thought you might like to know what dina's doctor told me.

Jack: Fine. Tell us what you know and make yourself scarce. We'll get the details from mother's doctor ourselves.

Nick: Sharon, you know I'm not some deadbeat dad, all right? I've planned for my kids' future. They're gonna be just fine. I've made sure of that.

Sharon: Not as fine as they would have been yesterday! Nick, why? Why would you have given away all that money?

Nick: Because having that money gave dad the impression he could call all the shots in my life. No money means no shots.

Sharon: And no security blanket.

Nick: I had $500 million for 6 years. It wasn't just sitting in a coffee can buried out in my backyard. I invested with it. I had some healthy returns. Enough that I'm gonna live comfortably. I planned for contingencies. My kids are gonna be just fine. They can go to any school they want, buy homes, money to kick in when they need it. It's all there. Untouched. Even when I'm long gone, sharon, there's gonna be more than enough to go around, all right? I'm not just some handsome face. There is a brain up here.

Sharon: And where was that brain when you made this impulsive, life-altering decision?

Nick: You know, you sound like vick. She said I was a lunatic.

Sharon: And rightfully so. You know, from where I'm standing, it looks like your only priority was making sure you got rid of every dime in that trust fund.

Nick: All I did was go back to the way life was before the lawsuit, before I got this ridiculous amount of money thrown into my lap. You know, some people think there's no such thing as too much money. Well, that's not me. That's not who I am.

Sharon: Well, I applaud you for wanting to use your wealth to give back to the community and help other people. That's your choice. It's not your kids'. But you can't predict the future, nick. Your kids may end up needing more than you've set aside. You basically guessed! And you're so caught up in this argument with your father you can't admit that you may have guessed wrong.

Victor: You're asking me to put an end to a feud with my son, after he has humiliated me on television, has mocked me?

Nikki: Victor, our son wasn't trying --

Victor: No, let's not discuss this, okay? The fact of the matter is that he gave a large chunk of his trust fund -- a trust fund that he got from me, money that i earned -- to a foundation run by jack abbott.

Nikki: You need to look past that.

Victor: No, I don'T.

Nikki: You need to focus on the reality of the situation. Yes, jack's foundation may receive a big part of the money. But there is a long line. People who really need it, they are going to the beneficiaries of it. So can't we just let that be the takeaway of all this? And don't forget -- nicholas could have easily gone to the authorities...

Victor: He didn't go to the authorities because he can't prove what didn't happen.

Nikki: Okay. Can't you just look at this --

Victor: No, I cannot. You want me to be the bigger man? To put this family back together again? You know I'm gonna solve this? You know how that's gonna happen? If you move back to the ranch and stop this nonsense.

Ashley: A stroke?

Graham: A minor one. According to dr. Hummel, dina will, over time, make a full recovery. So now that you know the diagnosis...

Traci: Let me guess. You want us to go home and you will handle everything from here on out.

Graham: I'll call when there's news.

Traci: Well, if it's all the same to you, I think I'll wait and hear from the doctor.

Graham: You think I'm lying?

Ashley: I think there's a pretty good chance, yeah.

Jack: The chief of staff is a friend of mine. I'll get the information.

Ashley: Doctor, what can you tell us?

Dr. Hummel: The initial test results are back. It appears that dina had a minor stroke.

Traci: So tell us about that, compared to a major stroke.

Jack: Doctor, we understand you're her personal private physician, that you've been treating her for a while now. What have you been treating her for?

Dr. Hummel: Nothing major. Her blood pressure's a little high, but just routine check-ups, really. Let me ask -- did your mother exhibit any warning signs before this incident?

Jack: Such as?

Dr. Hummel: Slurred speech, facial droop, loss of coordination...

Graham: Well, she did seem --

Jack: He asked her family. We'll answer it. Thank you.

Ashley: I didn't notice anything at dinner, did you?

Traci: No. No, I didn'T. Nothing like that.

Dr. Hummel: Okay, that helps. We'll do a few more tests, but i just want to stress how lucky it is your mother was brought in when she was. According to the paramedics, you were the first on scene?

Ashley: Mm-hmm.

Dr. Hummel: It's good you found her when you did. It's fair to say that she owes you her life.

Dr. Hummel: And I want to remind you, the first hours are key in a patient's survival and recovery.

Ashley: I wish I'd found her sooner.

Dr. Hummel: Focus on the positive. You got there in plenty of time to avoid a bad outcome.

Jack: Ashley, we are all grateful to you.

Traci: Absolutely.

Graham: Your sister wasn't alone. I was there, too. I'm actually the one who called dr. Hummel, but no thanks is necessary.

Traci: Can you tell us what we're looking at going forward?

Dr. Hummel: Oh, well, first things first, we'll get her out of the er and set up in the icu. The nurses will do neuro checks hourly. I've ordered additional tests to assess her risk for a bigger stroke. We'll see what that says. Then we can review the results in detail and come up with a treatment plan.

Ashley: Will the tests tell us why this happened?

Dr. Hummel: They might. If they don't, there are other tests we can do to find out what caused the stroke.

Jack: Doctor, could stress have been a factor?

Dr. Hummel: Potentially. It can cause the blood pressure to spike, which does put people at risk.

Jack: I'm sure mr. Bloodworth neglected to tell you, but our mother was under a great deal of stress last night.

Ashley: That's putting it mildly.

Dr. Hummel: No, I, uh -- I wasn't aware.

Jack: Yeah, things happened, unexpected things, at a family gathering. My mother was still struggling with them when I got her back to her hotel suite. She said she was gonna sleep. Obviously that didn't happen. I would never have left her had I see any of the symptoms you described.

Dr. Hummel: Don't beat yourself up about it. These things occur unexpectedly. But I am curious -- what transpired that made her so upset?

Ashley: Our mother found out that somebody she believed in greatly had betrayed her. He had lied to her over and over again. She found this out just a couple hours before her stroke. So you can do all the tests you want, but I'm pretty sure that's what caused it.

Ravi: No. "Jabot holiday sale" -- that should be the anchor text. You're right, it is better for fenmore'S. Good catch. I have to go. Upload the changes we discussed. Yeah, thanks. What'd you find out?

Gloria: I called a couple of nurse friends of mine at the hospital. Apparently, ashley found dina unconscious in her room after the family dinner.

Ravi: What?

Gloria: Yeah, and they took her to memorial, and now the siblings are all holding vigil.

Ravi: Is she gonna recover?

Gloria: My contacts aren't gonna divulge any stats about her -- confidentiality, all that stuff.

Ravi: I wonder if this has anything to do with the top of the tower the other night. It was a horrible night for dina. I think that's what caused this episode.

Gloria: You know, I had other plans, couldn't make it. So fill me in.

Ravi: I really shouldn'T.

Gloria: Ravi.

Ravi: It's family business.

Gloria: Ravi! I was married to their father for god's sake. I think that counts for something.

Ravi: I -- I get that.

Gloria: All right, then good! Spill!

Ravi: Look, I really can't, gloria, but... could you do me a huge favor?

Gloria: [ Scoffs ] Really? That's how this works?

Ravi: Please.

Gloria: Sorry. I know you're just being protective.

Ravi: I am.

Gloria: Very chivalrous. I won't make things more difficult for you than I already have.

Ravi: Thank you. I appreciate that.

Gloria: So what's this favor?

Ravi: Can you make sure that everything that's sent to dina cannot be signed for by graham?

Gloria: Graham? Did he do something? I know, I know. You're being a good samaritan. But could you give me a little bit of a clue about what this is all about?

Ravi: Gloria, I would love to. It would make my life so much easier, but it's really not my place...

Gloria: Yes, ravi. You need to get this off your chest, and I'm just presenting you with an opportunity to do that. And if anybody in this town can keep a secret, it's me.

[ Telephone rings ]

Ravi: Oh, thank god.

[ Sighs ] Hello? No, ashley's not in today. Uh, yeah, no. Thank you for calling. I'll be right there.

Gloria: Who was that?

Ravi: No time.

Gloria: Should I go with you?

Ravi: You stay here. I have to take care of something for ashley.

Graham: While I'm sure dr. Hummel appreciates your passion and determination to find out what caused dina's stroke, you're hardly a trained professional. Let's leave the medical diagnosis to him, shall we?

Jack: Your input is, as usual, unsolicited. Doctor, since you said it was a minor stroke, when you do anticipate we'll be able to take our mother home?

Dr. Hummel: We'll have to revisit that question when we get all the test results. But it's important to know the next few hours are critical for dina, as we may not know the extent of the stroke until then. But, as I said, this is, from all appearances, a minor one.

Traci: Does that mean that we can see her?

Dr. Hummel: I'm sorry. We're gonna have to hold off for now. She's under a mild sedation. Also, the nurses need to get her up to her room and settled and make their assessments. So I'll go check on the progress and I'll get back with you.

Ashley: Thank you.

Jack: Thank you, doctor.

Ashley: Well, good. Gives you some time to get an attorney 'cause you're gonna need one.

Graham: Why would I need a lawyer?

Ashley: Maybe because of fraud? But, don't worry, I'm sure we could think of a couple more charges to add to that.

Victor: I don't need an answer from you this minute.

Nikki: No, you're just using blackmail to demand one.

Victor: I'm doing no such thing, okay?

Nikki: Old habits die hard.

Victor: Listen to me. If you want our family to be whole again, you move back to the ranch. Simple as that. That way, we will all give hope to the rest of the family, to the children and grandchildren.

Nikki: I have to say, this is very unexpected. So you're saying that despite all of the fighting and accusations and all of that, you want me to move back to the ranch?

Victor: What the hell are you talking about? I never wanted you to move out of the ranch! I never did! That was your decision!

Nikki: All right, I have a question for you.

Victor: What?

Nikki: And I want you to consider your answer. By no means am I saying that we are going to reconcile, but if we should someday in the future, would you rather it be we get back together out of fate or because I succumbed to your demands, your extortion? I mean, which option do you think has the best chance of giving us something meaningful, something special like what we once had? I don't expect an answer from you this very minute.

Sharon: Thank you.

Nick: Yep.

Sharon: Seriously? You're still pouting?

Nick: I'm not pouting. I mean, you did say some pretty harsh things.

Sharon: Well, that's how strongly I feel about this.

Nick: Well, it's done, and there's no sense of arguing about it.

Sharon: Well, that might not be true. I mean, call jack or neil! You can renegotiate the amount that you donated. I mean, you can be generous, but not as generous.

Nick: That's not gonna happen.

Sharon: Why not?

Nick: Sharon, I went on national television and told everyone exactly how much i would be donating. So if you don't mind, I would like to hang on to some of my integrity, since I'm now $500 million poorer.

Sharon: You go ahead and you make jokes. Because you didn't grow up the way that I did, having to scrape together money just to eat or pay your rent. And I can't describe to you how much it's meant to me to know that my children will never have those experiences. I want them to have options that I never had. Like knowing that if they make a mistake or they go through a rough patch that there's a safety net, a cushion that will stop them from falling too far, you know? It would be the thing that would allow them to make a fresh start if necessary, to make a mistake and not have it wreck their lives!

Nick: They still have that.

Sharon: [ Scoffs ] You don't get it. To me, money means...freedom. The more you have, the more you can dream. And I'm not talking about buying expensive cars or houses or any ridiculous crazy purchases. I just mean being able to follow your heart. You know, if noah wanted to, he could take a year off and travel the world, and faith could decide to devote her life to being a world champion chess player, I mean, when she grows up.

Nick: They can still do that. Me making this donation is not gonna prevent them from chasing any of their dreams.

Sharon: I'm not so sure.

Nick: Sharon, come on. I mean, there's no reason in the world for anyone to have this much money. Unless you're gonna, like, buy a private island. I mean, look, you have been in this family. You know that money has caused problems so many times.

Sharon: You know, the only reason why scott is alive right now is because victor was able to afford a $10 million ransom. Now, scott's mother, lauren -- she owns a very successful business, and she wasn't able to save her own son.

Nick: Well... I mean, you got me there. I don't have a rainy day ransom fund.

Sharon: You know, I really wish you weren't so cavalier about this.

Nick: [ Scoffs ]

Sharon: You know, from my point of view, you don't win the lottery and then give away the jackpot!

[ Doorbell rings ]

Nick: Oh, am I glad to see you. I need some backup, dude. Go talk some sense into your mother.

Noah: Her? I came to do that to you. Dad, what were you thinking?

Jack: 245-A. This is where they moved mother.

Graham: Yes, that sounds perfect. Room 245-A. Dina mergeron. Thank you.

Jack: What are you still doing here? You're not welcome here! No one wants you here, including our mother.

Graham: You don't know that. I was politely escorted out of that mess of a dinner party before I could fully explain things to dina.

Ashley: You mean fill her head with lies again. Isn't that what you're saying?

Graham: I'm confident when i sit down with her, I can make her understand.

Ashley: Really? Understand? No, you tried to manipulate her again. Now, listen to me. You're not going near her room. You're not going near our mother ever again! Are we clear?

Graham: I've had it with each and every one of you.

Ashley: Oh, have you?

Graham: Yes! You're self-righteous. It was clear from the beginning you didn't even want anything to do with your mother, but you came after me because I made time for her and treated her the way she deserved.

Ashley: You lied to her! You manipulated her! Our mother is done with you! She knows who you are, graham.

Graham: You don't speak for her. When she wakes up and is ready to receive visitors, she's gonna want to see me! It'll be me that she asks for, not you! And what she'll see through is all of this concern of yours and realize that you're out for blood! Now that the world knows that your father isn't the great john abbott!

Ashley: Don'T.

Jack: That's enough.

Graham: And, in fact, your father is pathetic, a loser! Just like his illegitimate daughter is today.

Ashley: You son of a bitch!

Traci: Ashley! Ashley!

Jack: Ash, ash, ash, ash.

Traci: Ashley, let go! Come on.

"The young and the restless"

will continue.

Noah: What if we hit a snag in our expansion plans? I mean, almost every business book that I've ever read always says that this is a risky venture for young companies.

Sharon: He's right.

Noah: I've got so much going on right now -- living with tessa, planning the new spots for the underground... it would really make my life a lot easier if we didn't have to worry about our expansion plans.

Nick: Noah, it --

Noah: Dad, look, I'm not trying to tell you what to do with your money. I'm saying it might have come in handy if we ran into some kind of unexpected crisis.

Sharon: That's exactly what i told him.

Noah: And was it really such a good idea to piss off grandpa even more? I mean, he could have been a valuable asset, but now both those options are off the table.

Nick: Well, that is one way to look at it. See, I'm choosing to look at it like we are two very smart, two very capable guys who can do this on our own without some insane amount of money sitting in a bank account or some rich family member to bail us out.

Noah: I do believe in us, dad. But I am worried that this war you're waging with grandpa puts us at a major disadvantage.

Nick: It's not a war. I mean, not to me. I've washed my hands of him.

Noah: See, this is part of the problem. You keep on insisting you have nothing to do with grandpa. You already refused to consider a location in a building that he owns. So what's next? We refuse to work with any vendor that doesn't business with newman enterprises? Because most companies do.

[ Scoffs ]

Nick: What do you want me to do? Make peace with him?

Noah: [ Sighs ]

Sharon: Geez. That'd be a start. I have to go.

Noah: I'll come with you.

Sharon: Bye, nick.

Nick: [ Sighs ]

Ravi: Thank you so much for calling. I will deliver this to ms. Abbott personally.

Victor: Ravi! What's this?

Ravi: Oh, uh, this is ashley's innovator of the year award.

Victor: Oh, my goodness! Look at that!

Ravi: There was a dinner here to celebrate her accomplishments last night, but it accidentally got left behind. But your staff, they are amazing, they are efficient. They called immediately, and i rushed over to grab it for her.

Victor: Well, thank you very much. I appreciate your compliments. I'm sorry that ashley didn't pick it up herself. I would have liked to have congratulated her.

Ravi: Yeah, well, she's, uh, busy.

Victor: Ooh. Must have been a hell of a party for her to leave this behind.

Ravi: Yeah, there was some confusion when the party ended.

Victor: Oh?

Ravi: Family business. Personal stuff with dina.

Victor: With dina?

Ravi: Yeah.

Victor: And ashley?

Ravi: Why would you say that?

Victor: Ravi, ashley and i have known each other for quite some time, you know. We used to be married to each other. We're sll really close. There's nothing I don't know about her.

Ravi: Well, I should get back to the office.

Victor: All right. You have a nice day.

Ravi: I am glad you guys remain close. She's gonna need as many friends as she can get right now.

Victor: Thank you. Thank you, ravi.

Ashley: Don't you mention my father's name, you understand me?

Graham: Oh, which one? The one that raised you, or...

Jack: You are one smart-ass remark away from getting your own hospital room.

Ashley: This cannot be a topic that he mentions, please.

Graham: Oh, well, you better tell that to your mother when she feels better because she's the one that told me john isn't your father.

Traci: That cannot be true. My mother wouldn't have told you a secret like that if I didn't even know.

Graham: That in itself should tell you a lot about our relationship. Of course I knew! Long before dina's unfortunate blurt in front of all those people.

Ashley: You know what...

Traci: Okay.

Graham: She felt she could confide in me because I listen to her with empathy, with understanding. She even told me how you became unstable when you found out the truth all those years ago.

Jack: Okay, that's enough.

Ashley: No. No. No. I'm okay. I'm not gonna waste my time on you. You disgust me. You're nothing but a sad, pathetic little liar. You lied about brent davis, you lied about your mother being dead. You lied about caring for dina when all you wanted was her money. We saw the real graham last night, the pathetic, sniveling, grasping graham. You can't put it back in a bottle now. It's too late.

Noah: [ Exhales sharply ]

Sharon: What is it?

Noah: Nah, it's nothing.

Sharon: Noah.

Noah: Just -- you think I overreacted?

Sharon: Your father just gave away $500 million. How is anyone supposed to react to that news?

Noah: I know. I --

Sharon: Well, I think what you did was completely justifiable.

Noah: Still, charging over there, popping off without giving it a second thought...

Sharon: You think you disrespected him.

Noah: Yeah, because I did.

Sharon: I can assure you that you didn't, and your father knows that. You know, if anything, I think that you came across as a business partner with legitimate concerns.

Noah: Yeah, but complaining about money that's not even mine given away to help people that have far less than we do... not my finest moment.

Sharon: Well, that may not have been your money now, but thanks to nick's impulsiveness, it never will be.

Noah: Wait, hold on, mom. Look, there's not one second of the day that I ever think about some future inheritance. That's not the problem that i have with dad.

Sharon: What about your children one day?

Noah: Children?

[ Laughing ] Slow down, mom. Tessa just moved in, okay?

Sharon: No, I'm not saying that you two will go that far, but you will one day with someone, hopefully. There is no limit to what you will want to do for your children.

Noah: Yeah, I hear you. I do. I do. Still, dad is teaching us to be independent, to believe in ourselves, which are values I'll want to pass onto my kids one day, so you got to give him props for that.

Sharon: You're being very magnanimous about this, noah. I hope that for your sake and your father's that giving away all this money turns out exactly how he expects it to.

Victor: Well, have a good meal, son. You know, I'm gonna instruct my staff to give you the family discount because I bet by now you feel the pinch, don't you?

Nick: It's funny you say that, you know, I was just at the bank signing some papers regarding my donation. The transfer's been made.

Victor: Well, I'm sure that has made jack abbott very happy.

Nick: You know, a large portion of my donation has been earmarked for orphanages around the country. I'm gonna help kids who don't have parents find permanent homes.

Victor: First, you give a lot of money to jack abbott to piss me off, and now what's this all about?

Nick: Look, there was a part of me that was trying to be a wise guy, I guess. But as I was reading the letter I wrote to jack and neil instructing them on how I wanted the funds distributed... you know, maybe subconsciously i was acknowledging that you had a very hard life growing up, and i know a big part of that defines who you are. In some ways, maybe it defines our relationship, too.

Nikki: [ Sighs ]

[ Clears throat ]

[ Glass tinking ] Am I supposed to ring a bell to get customer service?

Gloria: Well, hello, nikki. I thought I heard somebody.

Nikki: [ Chuckles ]

Gloria: No. No bell. You might want to take a number, though, and you may have to wait for a while because jack is out of the office all day.

Nikki: He's not gonna be here all day? He didn't mention that to me.

Gloria: Well, color me stunned. I thought you two shared everything.

Nikki: Gloria, might you have something more important to attend to so you don't have to worry about what jack and I may or may not share? If not, may I humbly suggest that you get a life?

Gloria: Actually, I have a magnificent life. Opera, theatre, museums... and the other night, I had drinks with victor.

Nikki: [ Gasps ] Well, is that so?

Gloria: Mm-hmm. And what a lovely experience. Oh, dear, I hope I'm not making you jealous. You two are still...technically married.

Nikki: Jealous? Oh, no, no. Not at all. Knock yourself out, gloria. I think you two should go have another round of drinks, and throw in dinner this time. It'll even be on me.

Gloria: If you don't want me to be out in public with your husband, I understand that, but no need to be snarky about it.

Nikki: Are you gonna school me in being less snarky?

[ Both chuckle ] That's really very amusing. No, gloria, I was being sincere. Yes, victor and I are still married, but we're in limbo. And if I want to keep up an active social life, I can't be upset if he does the same, so... if you do have any interest, you go for it, girl.

Gloria: [ Chuckles ] I don't think I implied there was.

Nikki: Yeah, but you've thought about it. Considered it just a little bit. Well, he's a fascinating man. He can be very charming when he wants to be. And he's the kind of man that can make a woman feel like she is the queen of the world, and i could give you advice on how to get his attention.

Gloria: Oh, yeah? What's in it for you?

Nikki: Well, we're not together, but he is the father of my children, so... is it so hard to believe I would want him to be happy?

Gloria: Mm.

Nikki: You know, you could do worse other than taking up with a person who will treat you well. So, uh, you think about it, and if there is the slightest amount of interest, do call me.

Gloria: [ Clears throat ]

Nick: You know, we've been locking horns for so long, i don't think either one of us knows who pushed it past the point of no return. I did give money to jack's foundation to spite you. I was just trying to end things, this back and forth between us, maybe for good. Then you could focus on one of your other rivals.

Victor: You were never a rival to me, son. But if you're willing to spend this kind of money to make peace, then I'm impressed.

Nick: Well, that's not the reaction I was expecting.

Victor: I bet the rest of the family has given you grief.

Nick: You're right. But I don't care. You know me, I go my own way.

Victor: As do I, and you know that.

Nick: So, maybe for the good of the family, then, we just agree to chill out a little bit?

Victor: Son, peace it is.

Jack: You have nothing to gain by fighting with us. It's a moot point, graham. I was the last person with mother before she collapsed, and she was ready to wash her hands of you, so forget the humiliation, the embarrassment. If you think this scheme of yours is going any further, you're wrong.

Graham: And where you see a scheme, I see a deep, abiding relationship.

Jack: Oh...

Graham: One that you couldn't possibly understand.

Dr. Hummel: Dina is still sedated, but she can have one visitor at a time.

Traci: Oh, jack, you go.

Graham: That's not happening. I'm seeing her first.

Traci: You think we're gonna allow that?

Graham: As it turns out, it's not up to you.

Traci: Come on.

Graham: Please see that my time with madame mergeron is uninterrupted.

Jack: Whoa, whoa. How can you possibly think we're gonna let you go in there before us?

Graham: As it happens, the matter was decided by a judge.

Ashley: What is this?

Graham: Dina's medical power of attorney, and she has signed it to me.

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

Cane: You're looking at the acting C.E.O. Of chancellor industries.

Lily: There's also something that I want to talk about with you.

Jordan: Sure. What's that?

Lily: Us.

Dina: In the conversation we had, I remember every word you said.
