Previously on "the young and the restless"...
Abby: Arturo and I are engaged.
[ Giggles ] You need to keep your relationship with arturo back in high school, where it belongs, because anything else would be disrespectful to rey.
Christine: Victor newman, you're being charged with the murder of J.T. Hellstrom.
Nikki: I thought that I had knocked him unconscious, but then he wasn't breathing.
Victor: I have to get rid of the murder weapon. Without it or without a body, the police will never have enough evidence to convict me.
Nick: I hope you're right, dad, but that doesn't solve all our problems.
Nikki: Every time I turn on my computer or read a newspaper, there's a new article out about how many years your father is gonna spend in prison for J.T.'S murder. How can I let that happen?
Our top story at this hour, the trail of international business magnet victor newman. Newman is charged with homicide in the presumed shooting death of his former son-in-law jeffrey todd hellstrom. Hellstrom left town under a cloud of suspicion after having allegedly attacked newman in his home and then later switching off his life support equipment. Before his disappearance, hellstrom, a father of three, worked as head of security at newman enterprises. There, he worked alongside his former wife victoria newman, who is the current acting C.E.O. Newman was released on a $1 million bond, having returned to his opulent ranch, where he's been living under house arrest while awaiting trial. He emerged as the lead suspect in the case after a suspicious fire there led investigators to find evidence of foul play. Prosecutors say newman is seeking revenge after hellstrom's multiple attempts on his life. Newman's attorney says his client has been wrongly accused and that some unknown party committed the crime. If found guilty, victor newman could face life in --
[ Tv turns off ]
Victor: [ Sighs ]
Mia: Scrambled or poached?
Rey: You're making me breakfast?
Mia: A big day today. Locking up the bad guys takes lots of protein.
Rey: Oh, I just deliver 'em. The "locking up" part's left for the court to decide.
Rey: Oh, I didn't mention it? I'm part of the team that's going to be escorting victor to the courthouse for the start of his trial.
Mia: I thought he made bail.
Rey: Well, he's still being monitored. Technically, he's not allowed to leave his property without an officer being present.
Mia: Ah. Afraid he might try to make a run for it.
Rey: I think it's a reasonable precaution, given that he was leaving to parts unknown when we nabbed him.
Mia: What's this "we" stuff? It was all you, baby.
Rey: If you say so.
Mia: I say so. I love that my clever husband didn't let victor newman get away with murder.
Mia: [ Giggles ]
Nick: I still can't believe this is going to trial. I really thought michael would be able to get this case dismissed.
Phyllis: That may be a challenge now that christine has a recording of your father talking about getting rid of the murder weapon.
Nick: The very fact that that recording exists proves that someone is trying to take down dad.
Phyllis: Which makes you collateral damage, too, since your voice is on there. If christine decides to be vindictive or -- excuse me -- even more vindictive, she could get you on conspiracy or obstruction.
Nick: Which upsets me even more. I mean, my own words could take my dad down even deeper.
Phyllis: Yeah, I know. I was thinking about that, too. This eavesdropper is just painting victor in the worst possible light, when he could have just as easily exposed nikki as the killer.
Nick: I mean, he's been tormenting her. At the same time, he's trying to protect her from prosecution.
Phyllis: Yeah. That's not too hard to figure out why.
Nick: Whoever's doing this knows exactly what this will do to mom if dad gets sent to prison. I mean, the guilt she must be feeling. And vick -- I mean, I know she's was J.T.'S victim, but she's gonna feel responsible. I mean, this is the ultimate "screw you" to this whole family, and the rest of us who know exactly what happened, we have to live with the fact that we can just say the word, and dad could go free.
Sharon: Imagine loving your wife so much that you'd be willing to risk dying in prison to keep her safe.
Mariah: It's a very romantic way of looking at it.
Sharon: I don't know another way.
Mariah: That victor is so sufficiently self-deluded that he thinks that he can actually beat these charges.
Sharon: Don't underestimate victor newman. He knows the odds are stacked against him, and still, he won't let nikki confess to the police. I'm just very moved by that.
Mariah: Am I hallucinating, or did you just praise victor for being noble?
Sharon: The man's done a lot of awful things, but he didn't kill J.T., And it's wrong that he should lose his freedom and his family and his reputation because of this lie. You know, if rey knew the real story, he'd hate being a part of this.
Mariah: Well, you don't have to worry about the police finding out because victor is gonna carry that secret to his grave.
Sharon: If we let him.
Mariah: Oh, my god. Mom, please tell me you're not thinking about going to the cops and confessing. People are managing their type 2 diabetes
Arturo: Well, I guess I don't have to ask how you're holding up.
Abby: [ Sighs ] I just... I had this wild fantasy that some new evidence would appear and these insane charges would just go away. But now I have to -- I have to stop burying my head in the sand because my dad is going on trial, and there's no stopping it now.
Arturo: I am so sorry, babe.
Abby: I just wish I knew how I was gonna get through this day.
Arturo: Whatever I can do, just say the word.
Abby: You're wonderful, you know that?
Arturo: I do, yes.
Abby: No, I'm serious. My dad has done nothing but insult you with that horrid prenup and all of those suspicions, but... here you are. When I need you the most. So strong and supportive.
Arturo: You are not your father. Thankfully.
Abby: How did I get so lucky?
Arturo: I'm the lucky one.
Abby: [ Chuckles ]
Arturo: Seriously, I mean, for the record, I don't hold any grudges, okay? Your dad is just protecting his daughter. I mean, who wouldn't? I can't blame him.
Abby: Just when I thought I couldn't love you more.
Arturo: Family comes first, always. I have to respect a father who knows that.
Abby: [ Sighs ] And my dad is fiercely protective, which makes it easy for everyone to believe that he went after victoria's ex. He has already been tried in the court of public opinion and convicted. I'm sorry, I'm such a mess.
Arturo: No, you're not. At all. I mean, no one would expect anything different, given everything that's happening.
Abby: Yeah, well, my dad would. Newmans are supposed to be tough, never show any weakness. And I know that I'm gonna have to get it together for the trial. I will, but... I don't know, it just... it hit me this morning -- that if my dad is convicted... he's not gonna be able to walk me down the aisle.
Mia: As proud as I am that you made detective and as handsome as you look in that jacket, I still miss your cop uniform.
Rey: Oh, yeah?
Mia: That's what you were wearing the day we met.
Rey: I remember. You were wearing that green dress.
Mia: Please. It was emerald.
Rey: Oh, that emerald green dress that hugged your curves in all the right places -- oof!
Mia: [ Giggles ] What? I'll have you know that's the dress I wore to mass on sundays.
Rey: Oh, I'm sure you made quite an impression on the congregation.
Mia: [ Laughs ]
Mia: Stop. Arturo's introducing me to your mother for the first time. I wasn't supposed to be sexy.
Rey: You would look sexy in a flour sack.
Mia: I was already a bundle of nerves, then you show up for a visit, that big, handsome cop with this big stern look.
[ Giggles ] I was sure you disapproved of me. I thought that the whole time arturo and I were dating.
Rey: And you took it as a challenge.
Mia: I did, god help me.
Rey: [ Chuckles ]
Mia: I was trying to get you to break from that reserve, get you to crack a smile.
Rey: There you were, you were teasing with me, flirting... you have no idea how hard it was for me.
Mia: I'm sure it was torture.
Rey: It was.
Mia: [ Laughs ]
Rey: I was madly in love with you, and you were in love with my brother, so...
Mia: You're right. I had no clue. You hid your feelings for me behind that mask of yours.
Rey: Wasn't easy.
Mia: Then years later, when i was single again... I was at the club with my girlfriends, on the dance floor by myself, and then suddenly... there you were, dancing right in front of me. You didn't have to say a thing. That look in your eye, the way you held me in your arms told me everything. When I looked into your eyes that night... I felt woozy, like I might pass out.
Rey: [ Chuckles ] Too much sangria?
Mia: Too much rey. You were intoxicating to me. Still are. That's why I followed you to genoa city. I couldn't live with the thought of you never looking at me that way again.
Mariah: You are a compassionate person. I get that, and I -- i understand, actually, why you would sympathize with victor.
Sharon: A lot of people will be devastated if he goes to prison, including faith.
Mariah: Fine. Feel sorry for the guy. I'm not gonna stop you. But you are not responsible for J.T.'S death.
Sharon: I was there, mariah.
Mariah: Yes. You were. As an innocent bystander, and then you got sucked into this situation.
Sharon: The same could be said for victor.
Mariah: Mom, please, please do not wreck your life for his. Faith needs you, I need you, noah needs you.
Sharon: I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm just saying, I hate the thought of victor going to prison for a murder that he didn't commit.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Mariah: Who is it from?
Sharon: Nick. He's calling a family meeting at his house. I suspect he's feeling the same way that I am. We need to stop this.
Live from the starlite lounge.
Nick: Sharon's on her way.
Victoria: What about mom?
Nick: I didn't invite her.
Victoria: Why not?
Nick: Well, I knew she'd want to stay with dad, plus, I want to talk about the impact this is having on her.
Victoria: I spoke to her this morning. I know she's trying to stay strong for dad, but I can hear the strain in her voice.
Nick: All the stress she's under...
Victoria: I know. She hasn't been out of the hospital that long. You know, if dad gets convicted...
Phyllis: Nick and I were just talking about that, about how the whole family's gonna have to come together, show their support.
Victoria: Maybe you should stay on the sidelines. Mom knows how you feel about dad taking the fall for her.
[ Doorbell rings ]
Nick: That's probably sharon. I'll be right back.
Victoria: I'm surprised you can contain yourself. You should be jumping up and down with glee right now.
Phyllis: Victor got into this eyes wide open, do not blame me.
Victoria: My father's not just trying to protect my mother. He's trying to protect all of us that were there that night. Why don't you show a little gratitude? It's just a thought.
Phyllis: Oh, gratitude, really? For victor? After what he unleashed on jack and me. No. You got a hell of a lot of nerve.
Nick: Thanks for coming, abby. Phyllis and victoria are here.
Phyllis: Hi. Good to see you, abby.
Abby: Yeah, uh, you, too. Just fyi, I'm not going to be going into work today when this is through.
Nick: Yeah, okay. Are you gonna be at the courthouse later?
Abby: Yes, but there's something I need to do first, a plan that I've been putting together.
Victoria: Well, don't keep us in suspense.
Abby: Well, I've been racking my brain trying to think of a way that I can help, and it finally dawned on me. Publicity, the thing that I do best. So I'm going to throw a shiny bauble at the press to try to distract from all of these stories about our father going on trial.
Phyllis: Well, that sounds like a savvy move.
Nick: Agreed. I think newman and dark horse should both do everything they can to tamp down some of the hysteria.
Abby: Hopefully, it'll help dad out, too.
Victoria: So, what's the shiny bauble? What story do you intend to promote?
Abby: It depends.
Abby: Whether I can get arturo on board.
Rey: No, no, I have no objection at all. I think you being there, taking the lead sends a very powerful signal. Yes, I will see you soon. Sorry about that.
Mia: When the da calls, you have to take it, even if it means leaving your wife literally panting for you.
Rey: Thank you for your patience.
Mia: [ Chuckles ] So, christine's running the show?
Rey: It's her prerogative. She wants to be there when we take victor to court.
Mia: Mm, probably because it'll look good for the cameras, and when it's time to get re-elected...
Rey: That's a very astute observation.
Mia: See? I pay attention when you tell me things.
Mia: Mm. Oh, I miss this. [ Sighs ] Just being close to you.
Rey: When we were separated?
Mia: We were this happy once before, and it slipped away from us. How can we make sure that that won't ever happen again?
Rey: Nothing "slipped away," mia. We made choices. Little things that added up. We were careless with each other's feelings. We thought we could make up for it later, another time. Now we know where that leads up, how much it costs, and we won't make the same mistakes.
Mia: God, I hope you're right.
Rey: I have been making an effort to spend more time with you, not putting my work first, trying to look at things from your perspective. I can see it's making a difference.
Mia: It definitely has. I feel so cherished in a way that I haven't in a long time.
Rey: I'm glad.
Mia: When I turned to arturo, it was because I thought you didn't care anymore. I figured what I did didn't matter to you. It wasn't until you found out and were in so much pain that i realized how wrong I was. I promise to never put you through anything like that again.
Rey: I know you won'T. Because then we'd be done. It'd be over. Forever.
Nikki: Darling, what would you think of this one instead, hmm?
Victor: Sweetheart, what difference does it?
Nikki: Well, it's important to make a good first impression on the court, don't you think?
Victor: Well, now, am I lucky to have someone like you to watch out for me?
Nikki: [ Sighs ] If it weren't for me, you wouldn't be in this mess.
Victor: Sweetheart, will you stop it? If you hadn't taken action against J.T. As you did, he might have murdered our daughter. Johnny, katie, and reed would have been without a mother. What you did is you protected our family, sweet love. Now it's my turn, okay? That's all. What's wrong with this tie?
[ Sighs ]
If you, like many people,
Arturo: Look at you, all fired up. What changed?
Abby: I have a plan of action.
Arturo: Lay it on me.
Abby: So, everyone in my family has a job. Nick convinced my dad to hire michael and make sure that he's prepared for trial, victoria's running newman, nikki's there for moral support...
Arturo: What about you?
Abby: I have made it my personal mission to change the narrative. The press is so focused on the dark side of victor newman, and even if my father is acquitted, I mean, all of that negative reporting, it's gonna tarnish his image, so I want to distract from that. I want to humanize him. I want to remind the public that my father is a loving dad and husband and grandfather.
Arturo: That sounds amazing, but how are you gonna do that?
Abby: With your help. There is no better feel-good story than a wedding, and we just happen to be in the planning stages. I have a ton of contacts who would be interested in pushing content on everything from the dress to the honeymoon to how we met, how we fell in love.
Arturo: Okay, so... what you're saying is you want to rush through the wedding just because you want to make some quick headlines?
Rey: After you, my lady.
Mia: [ Giggles ]
Rey: You want a coffee, too?
Mia: I've had plenty. You're the one that needs the extra caffeine. You're the one that's gonna haul the bad guys. [ Giggles ] What is it?
Rey: [ Sighs ] Abby and arturo are in there.
Rey: So...I want to give abby her space. It's got to be a difficult day for her. Seeing me will just make it worse.
Mia: Well, aren't you thoughtful.
Rey: You know, you ought to reach out, see if you can help since the two of you are becoming friends.
Mia: That went by the wayside.
Rey: Really? Why?
Mia: Abby was pretending to be nice to me to score points with arturo. The truth is... she looks down on me.
Rey: Well, abby goes low, you go high. You be the bigger person.
Mia: Why should I?
Rey: Because your life is going great right now. She's going through a rough time. And the two of you are gonna be sisters, right? I'm gonna grab coffee from that place across from the station.
Mia: Good luck today.
Abby: I will say it again -- you can relax. I do not want to move up our wedding date. I just want to amp up the pre-wedding publicity and give the press something positive to obsess over.
Arturo: Okay, good, because you actually had me worried. Getting married is a huge deal to me, all right? I want that day to be special. I want it to be about us and our love, not about the trial, not about any mia problems...
Mia: Hello, you two. Oh, abby, you poor thing. You look like a woman who could use a hug.
Sharon: The thought of victor going to prison for J.T.'S death -- I'm having a hard time accepting that.
Nick: We all are.
Victoria: Present company excluded.
Nick: We're not gonna do that. We just need to come up with a solution, one that protects our father without endangering our mother.
Mariah: Or my mother. Or any of you.
Phyllis: You're complicit in this, too, mariah. You and your extortionist girlfriend tessa could lose just as much as all of us.
Mariah: Thank you, phyllis, so much, for reminding me of that.
Sharon: I don't appreciate you arraigning my daughter.
Victoria: Can we stay focused, please?
Nick: Yes. Look, even if we can find this guy who's targeting our father, it doesn't mean we're home free.
Mariah: Why not?
Victoria: Because he knows the whole story.
Nick: Yeah, if we expose him, what's to stop him from exposing all of us?
Phyllis: You're right. We could really be taking a risk.
Sharon: I think I have the answer. It's a way to fight back. Free victor and protect nikki.
Victoria: Great. Let's hear it.
"The young and the restless"
Arturo: Why don't we just leave?
Abby: And let mia drive us out of here? Yeah, no way.
Mia: Have you been crying? Oh, what did you say to her?
Arturo: Nothing. She's just --
Mia: If you'd like to come upstairs, I have a wonderful cream that will work wonders on the puffiness around your eyes.
Abby: Wow, that is just so sweet of you, mia, but, actually, arturo and I have an appointment that we can't miss.
Mia: Pre-marital counseling?
Abby: [ Chuckles ] No. We are going to get our engagement photo taken. That's what I wanted to tell you before mia showed up.
Arturo: Ah, sounds like fun.
Mia: [ Laughs ] Meaning he'd rather have a root canal without novocaine. When arturo and I were dating, he was so camera-shy. I had to pull teeth in order to get him to take a selfie with me.
Abby: Yeah, arturo and i already discussed that, and i want him to feel very comfortable. So I hired my good friend rocco to take the pictures. Yeah, he has a way of making people feel at ease.
Mia: Rocco -- rocco fazzolare?
Arturo: Uh, don't ask me. I don't know.
Abby: He's a fashion photographer. He's pretty well-known. And he's in chicago doing an editorial shoot, so he's gonna pop over here and take our picture.
Arturo: Wow. Oh, boy. Okay, um...
Abby: Don't be nervous. Look, I'm gonna be in the pictures with you, too. So all you have to do is focus on me.
Arturo: Well, in that case, I think I'll be fine.
Abby: Well, we better get going. Have a lovely day, mia.
Sharon: The person who's controlling all of our lives is the one who's framing victor.
Victoria: The man who katie saw. The one who infiltrated the ranch.
Sharon: Think about it. Even if we all agree to let victor be the fall guy, what's to prevent this guy from turning us all in later on? He could do that tomorrow, he could it a year from now, 10 years from now -- whenever he decides the time is right to screw us all over -- and then victor's sacrifice would be for nothing.
Phyllis: I don't see that happening.
Sharon: Why, because I said it?
Phyllis: Because he has gone through a ton of trouble to make it appear that victor was guilty. I mean, he planted the evidence, burnt the stables, recorded our conversations from inside the house. Why would he have all of his hard work undone?
Nick: Not to mention how much this bastard seems to enjoy tormenting our mother.
Mariah: Well, to me, that proves that sharon is right. I mean, this guy isn't rational, and we can't count on him to keep this secret.
Victoria: What did you mean when you said you could protect mom?
Sharon: Nikki had three witnesses there at the scene who could testify that she only acted to save your life. If we all came forward together --
Victoria: That's a bad idea, sharon.
Nick: I think we agreed no.
Sharon: Okay, please, just let me finish. Nikki did what any mother would do. She protected her child from danger. It's a compelling story. The jury would sympathize, and we'd all be there to back her up. You know, with all the mitigating circumstances, maybe nikki can cut a plea deal. You know, house arrest or a minimum sentence at a low-security facility, nothing like what victor is facing. He would go free if we all told the truth, and then this stalker wouldn't have power over us anymore.
Phyllis: You're out of your mind.
Mariah: Mom, look, I know you're trying to help everybody out, but I just don't see that happening. I mean, not like that. The prosecution could take your story and twist it in a very, very different way.
Phyllis: Like nikki wanting to go after the man who tried to kill her husband, luring him to his death with three accomplices.
Sharon: Oh, that's ridiculous. No one would believe that.
Victoria: Rey might not, but plenty of other people would.
Mariah: Like christine.
Phyllis: Especially christine. What you are proposing will cost all of us our freedom.
Sharon: Obviously you don't mind letting an innocent man rot in prison, but I would like to feel good about myself.
Nick: Look, this is getting us nowhere. Sharon, I appreciate you trying, but I just don't have as much faith as you do that we can save dad and keep mom from doing hard time. And with the state of her health, we just can't risk it.
Abby: [ Shivers ]
Arturo: [ Shivers ] Whoa! Whoa, whoa. What is up with all these clothes?
Abby: I had my stylist pull some items for our pictures.
Arturo: All this trouble for one engagement photo? I mean, I could have just changed into a suit.
Abby: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, well, um, you see, there's a little bit more to it than what I wanted to say in front of mia.
Arturo: Am I gonna like it?
Abby: So, I wanted to generate some positive publicity around the newmans, so I pitched our story to life and style magazine. And they want to do a photo shoot and an interview.
Arturo: [ Exhales sharply ]
Abby: Okay, just -- just breathe, sweetie. Just breathe. It's gonna be great. Okay, I will take care of the interview. Nothing too personal -- all they want to know is how we met, what we like about each other, how happy we are...
Arturo: Yeah, okay, I trust that you will take care of all of that, but a whole photo shoot? Seriously?
Abby: It'll be fun.
Arturo: Yeah, for you, maybe. A portrait, I can handle. But I'm not model. I'm not even a selfie kind of guy.
Abby: You are going to be great. It's gonna be easy-peasy. We're gonna do it here, at the house, where everyone can be relaxed and comfortable. The point is to not doing anything wild and crazy. We want to counteract the circus surrounding my father. Ooh! Ooh, ooh! This -- this is amazing. I love it.
Arturo: And you're sure that I don't need to pretend to be a model?&
Abby: One million, billion percent sure. Okay? We want to look glamorous and aspirational yet serious and professional, like we are. Oh, and madly in love.
Arturo: [ Chuckles ] That part, I can handle.
Abby: This suit is going to look so good on you. So hot.
Arturo: [ Chuckles ] It is nicer than anything I've ever worn.
Abby: Well, if you like it, you can keep it. Compliments of the designer.
Arturo: Are you kidding?
Abby: Would I kid about free designer duds? [ Giggles ]
Arturo: Whoa, okay. I had no idea that's how this worked.
Abby: Well, you better get used to it, being married to newman.
Arturo: I think I can handle that, too.
Nick: When do you leave?
Victor: Within the hour.
Victoria: [ Sighs ] We wanted to be here with you and mom when the police escort arrives.
Nikki: That was very thoughtful of both of you.
Nick: Where's michael?
Nikki: Oh, um, he'll be here shortly. He insisted on accompanying your father when the police came to take him -- uh, take him to the courthouse.
Victoria: Come on, let's go put on a pot of coffee.
Victor: That's a good idea. Okay, my sweetheart. You know, your mother has been through a very rough time lately. She's been enormously resilient. But now we need to step in for her, you know?
Nick: Yeah, vick and I were just talking about that.
Victor: Yeah. I know that things are in good hands with you and victoria, and that puts me at ease.
Nick: So you are worried, then?
Victor: About mom?
Nick: Nah, about the trial, the possible outcome.
Victor: [ Sighs ] Well, whoever set me up did a hell of a job. Difficult to find their trail.
Nick: Well, just so you know, I'm not stopping until I figure out who did this.
Victor: I appreciate that. Clearly, it's gonna take a much longer time to find that guy, to track him down. Meanwhile, victoria will take care of things at newman enterprises, and you will look after the family, right?
Victor: Okay, my boy. I want you to look out for abby, okay? I don't -- I don't trust her fiancé.
Nick: Arturo works for me. He seems like a good guy.
Victor: No. I trust my instincts. I've known types like that. He's an operator. So watch out for abby.
Nick: Okay, I will. I'll look out for abby, vick, mom, the grandkids. Am I missing anyone?
Victor: [ Sighs ] Makes me feel damn good to know that you're on my side. I appreciate the fact that I'm leaving everyone in very capable hands.
We are back now with breaking news. Our sources at the da's office are reporting the murder trial of victor newman will be getting underway in just about an hour. So let's go to live to suzanne at the walworth county courthouse. Suzanne, could you describe the scene there for me as you're waiting for mr. Newman to arrive? Because I'd imagine it's pretty chaotic out there given that interest in this case is running so high.
That's right, there are dozens of reporters and spectators out here, all hoping to catch a glimpse of him. Well, the likelihood...
Phyllis: I'm not the only one who wants to see him go down.
...Newman is technically still in custody. Now, we did receive an earlier tip that he would be brought it by law enforcement through a separate and secure entrance. Is that still the case?
I'd assume that is accurate since he is a known flight risk.
Yes, and just to remind our viewers, victor newman was originally denied bail after attempting to evade arrest by leaving town on his private jet. Any word on whether he'll be wearing his ankle monitor during the court proceedings?
Yes, and in fact, its range has been extended.
Yeah, well, that is a very powerful statement by authorities on just how determined they are to see justice done in the slain of jeffrey todd --
[ Tv turns off ]
Abby: I -- I have to change. I have to get over there.
Arturo: I'll come with you.
Abby: Are you sure? Because it's gonna be a zoo. Reporters in our faces, cameras, microphones...
Arturo: Abby, none of that matters to me. Okay? I don't want you to go through this alone.
Michael: Any other questions as to how today is going to go now that christine has decided to involve herself in victor's transport?
Victor: To bring me into court like this is a big feather in her cap.
Nick: It's a heck of a photo op, frog-walking victor newman right onto her turf.
Michael: All right, let's just look at the bright side. With a police escort, we won't have to deal with the press or spend a lot of time going through security.
Victoria: The bright side? Really, michael?
[ Doorbell rings ]
Nikki: Oh, god, they're here.
Michael: All right, I will see them in.
Victor: Why don't you go on ahead with your mother, and I'll see you in the courtroom, okay?
Nikki: No, I'm not leaving your side, so put that idea right out of your head.
Victoria: You're so brave. I don't know how you do it, dad.
Victor: Your daddy is an ornery sob.
Christine: Hello, victor.
Victor: Well, hello, christine. Hell of a day for you, isn't it?
Christine: Actually, I find it all rather sad.
Christine: I admired you once.
Victor: You did. Yeah, I remember. And I mentored you once.
Christine: Corporate law wasn't my calling.
Victor: It wasn't, was it? But dragging innocent people through the mud, ruining their lives and reputations, that's more your thing, isn't it? Any regrets?
Christine: Only one.
Christine: If you had served out the sentence the court imposed on you last time, your grandson's father might still be alive.
Rey: Um, there's quite a bit of traffic around the courthouse. Might be best if we get going.
Michael: I'd like to ride with my client.
Christine: That's fine. Detective.
Victor: Here you go.
