is sitting at the bar having a drink, Nikki comes in and asks if he will
by her a drink. He is surprised to see her.
She tells him she saw his car out front. Jack “So, what’s going
on?” Nikki “Oh, I was just out and about, actually that’s not true,
I was looking for you.” Jack “Oh?” Nikki “Why so glum?” Jack
“Just worried about my sister.” Nikki
“Well, the last time we talked, you did say there was something going on
but you didn’t elaborate.” Jack “The whole thing is an ugly tale.”
Nikki “Is that mood of yours about Ashley or something else?” Jack
“Like what?” Nikki “I have heard that Jabot is having money
troubles.” “You are in
danger of defaulting on a loan and that would cause you to lose the
company.” “Is it true?” Jack looks incredulous.
serves Victor coffee. She
proposes a toast to a beautiful evening.
Victor says that their talk is overdue.
Diane “About us?” “I like the sound of that, us.” Victor
“It is about our living arrangements.”
Diane “Well, I did have doubts but we are still compatible, I
still know what you like.” Victor looks confused and then says “Oh
yes, the chicken was lovely.” Diane “There is a lesson to be learned
here.” “Never give up and always stay positive.” “You never know
how things might turn out.”
(Victor doesn’t look convinced.) (He doesn’t say a word, just sips his
at the door, Olivia opens the door, Ashley is there “Surprise!” Olivia
is happy to see her and invites her in.
Ashley says she stopped by the hospital but she was not there.
Olivia explains she is taking things easy.
Ashley asks if it is because of the anemia? Olivia says it is
taking awhile to get over but she is just cutting back on some patients
and trying to take it easy. Ashley
says if there is anything she can do to help, please let her know.
Olivia says she will and then asks Ashley to tell her everything
that has been going on with her. Olivia
says Ashley looks radiant. Olivia
asks if she is happy? Ashley says she is very happy she is in an amazingly
beautiful place right now.
is sitting in the window seat, staring out the front window, lost in
thought. The doorbell rings,
instead of answering it, Megan heads upstairs.
A voice is heard, calling her name “Megan.”
Megan opens the door for Ryan but says nothing; she lets him in and
heads for the living room. Ryan
“I wanted to come by and see how you are doing/” Megan “I didn’t
want to see anyone.” Ryan “Meaning Tricia?” Megan “Did you talk to
your wife?” Ryan nods Megan “Then you know how I am!” Ryan “I am
so sorry that about all of this.” Megan
“Tricia lied to you as much as she did to me.” “She conspired with
Grace to break Tony and I up!” “I am so angry.”
Ryan “You have every right to be.”
Megan “Aren’t you?” Ryan “I was.”
Megan “And now everything is wonderful?” Ryan “No, of course
not.” “But I understand
that Tricia is sick and she didn’t know what she was doing..” Megan
“I can’t believe you are defending her!” “You are rationalizing
everything that she has done!”
is working out. Malcolm comes
in and teases him about being careful since he is an old man.
Neil tells him to shut up, and let’s see the expert do it.
Malcolm “I know why you are here, to impress your girl.” Neil
“You are crazy.” “There is no girl, Dru is gone.” Malcolm
says being pregnant is wonderful. Olivia
agrees with her completely. Ashley
says she had no idea how exciting it would be and no one could have
prepared her for the baby moving for the first time.
Olivia is very happy for her. Olivia says it must be difficult for
her having a child on her own. Ashley
says it won’t be as difficult as she first thought.
Ashley explains that her family is now supportive, even Jack.
Olivia asks if the man in Ashley’s life knows about the baby?
Ashley says she was worried about telling him, but now everything is out
in the open and he is ok with it. Olivia
asks who this mystery man is? Ashley says “Victor Newman.” Olivia is
“Friends again?” Victor says it is time to discuss their living
arrangements. Diane isn’t
interested she says they have been getting along well.
Victor says, “Diane, that was the past, we are getting along
well, but now it is time to move on.” Diane “Move on?” Victor
“When you sold the apartment back to me, I gave you three months grace
period.” Diane “You
hadn’t said anything, I hoped…I assumed…” Victor “Here is the
contract you signed Feb 15th.” Diane looks disappointed.
Victor “You seem surprised.” Diane “Surprised, no not at
all.” Victor “Since you have been looking for another place, I am sure
you have found one by now.” “You have 2 weeks to finalize the
and Nick’s House:
and Cassie are making plans for the party.
Cassie says she wants a pool party.
Nick says he wants to hire a blimp and put “Cassie Newman” up
in lights. Sharon comes in.
Cassie “Mommy, Daddy and I were planning for the party, a pool
party.” Sharon “That’s great.” (She sounds distracted). Nick
“Everything ok?” Sharon “Yes, just fine.” “So tell me about this
party.” Nick “It will be the party of the decade.”
Sharon “June is not that far away.”
“Dru is gone?” Neil “Since this morning.”
“She got a gig and left.”
Malcolm “I thought you two were getting back together?” “I am
sure Lily will be disappointed at leaving.” Neil “Lily is still
here.” “Dru left her behind so we could have some time together.”
Malcolm “You can’t be happy about this.” Neil
“I knew it was coming, so I wasn’t surprised.” Malcolm “I
know you were happy having her here.” Neil “To tell you the truth, I
don’t give a damn, that she’s gone!” Malcolm “I am just trying to
help.” Neil “If you want
to help, just stay out of my business.”
and Tomas are talking. Nina
“Sharon was talking to Meg?” “Did you get some sense of what they
were talking about?” Tomas “I didn’t want to eves drop.”
“Sometimes private conversations should be just that, private.”
Nina “Didn’t you tell me I should get involved and do anything
I could to help?” Tomas “The situation was different.” (Christine
comes in) She says dinner is almost ready.
Tomas offers to help and he heads for the kitchen.
Christine “I love spur of the moment parties.”
Nina “So do I.” (She sounds sad.) Christine “Everything
ok?” Nina “I am just worried about someone.” Christine “If you are
worried about Paul and Tomas getting along…” Paul and Tomas come back
from the kitchen talking about baseball, like old friends.
“I am not rationalizing or condoning what Tricia did.” “I am just
trying to get past it and move on.”
Megan “I don’t believe for a moment that Tricia didn’t know
what she was doing.” “Do you remember that day at the coffee house,
when she conned you into keeping me there so she could plant a bra in
Tony’s apartment?” “Oh, you may as well know, she kissed Tony at the
Colonnade Room New Year’s Eve.” Ryan “She told me.”
“She messed up and made mistakes.” Megan “Is that all she has
done, made mistakes?” Ryan “I will admit, I was not affected by all of
this, as badly as you were.” “But she is my wife and I will stand by
her.” “She is your family, your sister.”
Megan “She didn’t act like a sister when she was conspiring
with Grace.” Ryan “She is
trying to make amends.” Megan “It’s not good enough.” “Ryan,
Tony is dead.” “How can she undo that?”
“You heard JABOT had financial troubles, from whom?” Nikki “It
doesn’t matter.” Jack
“Jill has been shooting her mouth off.”
Nikki “The point is you need help.”
Jack “The point is there is a leak.” Nikki “Ok, it was
Brad.” Jack “Brad, I know what he is doing…” Nikki “He was
blowing off steam after your argument.” Nikki “Can’t you look at
this from a positive light.” “It
is a good thing he told me.” Jack “Why?” Nikki “It got me
thinking.” “I have a solution to your problems.”
“Don’t you have a place in mind?” Diane “Yes, I do.” Victor
“Is escrow closing soon?” Diane “We are still in negotiations.”
Victor “If it is a question of price, I would be happy to help.” Diane
“That is very kind of you.” Victor “The grace period will soon be
up.” Diane “I know, but the owner wanted a 6 month escrow and it took
time to talk him out of it.” Victor “Well how much longer will you
need?” Diane “6 or 8 weeks.” Victor “You will have two weeks to
move out.” Diane “Or what, you will put me out on the street?”
Victor “I will put you up in the best hotel suite in town until
everything is settled.”
is over, everyone compliments Paul on his steak grilling abilities Paul
quotes a line from one of Tomas’s books. Tomas is surprised he read
them. Tomas says they should
hang out with such well-read people more often.
Tomas proposes a toast to the future.
says Neil is a little edgy and Neil tells him to back off.
He asks Malcolm to tell Olivia the same thing.
Malcolm reminds Neil that Dru is her sister and she is concerned
about all of them. Neil asks
them to stop interfering. Malcolm
wants to know what happened? Neil says things didn’t work out between he
and Dru, she is too busy with her career, and please just drop it.
can’t believe it is Victor Newman, since he is married to Nikki.
Ashley says they were never legally married.
It is a long story. Olivia
says Ashley doesn’t make life easy for herself, and the last thing she
needs right now is extra stress. Ashley
says she understands and is taking things easy.
Olivia says her relationship with Victor will be fraught with
stress, how could it not be, given the animosity between Victor and Jack.
Ashley says when she and Victor were married, Jack handled it and
he will handle things again. Olivia
says that was a long time ago and many things have happened since then.
asks who would like dessert? Everyone
does so he and Tomas go to get it. Christine says they are getting along
well. Nina says it is nice to
see her and Paul doing so well. Christine
says her partnership with Michael is going well.
“What were you going to tell me earlier?”
Nina “How much do you know about the Dennison girls and the
situation with Tony Viscardi?” Christine “Just that Tony’s death
caused a controversy.” “Sharon had concerns that it wasn’t an
accident.” “Has something happened?” Nina “Grace Turner showed up
and she and Sharon were getting chummy again.”
“They both talked to Megan about their suspicions concerning
Tricia.” Christine “You are concerned about Megan.” Nina “Tomas
said he saw Megan talking to Sharon at the coffee house.”
“I am concerned the whole thing will blow up!”
Malcolm “I am sorry if I came on too strong.” Neil
“Forget it.” Malcolm “I was really pulling for you two to get back
together.” “I thought I
was picking up on some vibes.” Neil “Well if those vibes were real
they were all coming from me.” Malcolm “Nothing wrong with that.”
Neil “Well, they say you can make a positive out of a negative.” “If
I hadn’t tried again with Dru, I would always have wondered.” Malcolm
“People change, you never know.” Neil “Well as far as Dru is
concerned, she is the mother of my child and nothing more.” “But as
for us, it won’t happen.” Malcolm “Never say never.”
“Listen I have to go.” He tells Neil he will call him later and
and Sharon’s House:
“What else do you want for your party?” Cassie “Will you put on that
funny hat and dance?” Nick “Oh, I don’t know about that.”
Cassie “Please, please, pretty please!” Nick “Well, ok but on
one condition.” Cassie “I
hate conditions.” “What?”
Nick “That you dance with me.” Cassie “Ok, but we have to dance
fast.” Sharon “Well it
sounds like things are really coming into place for your party.”
“What else does that leave?” Cassie “The guest list.”
Sharon “So who would you like to invite?” Cassie “Well,
Grandma Nikki and Grandpa Victor.”
Sharon “Well, I am sure they will come.”
“Grandma Doris.” Sharon
“She will love that you want to include her.”
Cassie “Well..” Sharon
“You would like to include Alice and Millie wouldn’t you?” Cassie
“Yes…” Sharon “I
think we can do that.” Nick “Anyone else?” Cassie “Megan.”
(Sharon looks apprehensive). Nick “Perhaps she will come.”
“Anyone else?” Cassie “Grace.”
“I know she lives in New York but we could call her.”
“If it weren’t for her, I wouldn’t be here with you now.”
Sharon “That’s true.” “We
could ask her.” Nick “We have a surprise for you.”
Cassie “You do?” “What is it?” (Nick hands her a box).
Nick “Open it and find out.”
She opens the box and inside is a gold locket.
Cassie “Oh, it’s beautiful.” Nick “We had CN engraved on
it.” Cassie “For Cassie Newman.” “It is the most wonderful present
I have ever gotten except coming to live here with you.”
(Nick, Sharon and Cassie hug).
“You want to help me?” Nikki “Yes…” Jack “Tell Carlton to keep
his trap shut!” Nikki “I know you need the money.” “I want you to
keep an open mind.” Jack
“I need that money and am open to almost anything.” Nikki “Private
funding.” Jack “You mean bypass the bank and speak to the investors
directly?” Nikki “Exactly and I want to be one of those investors.”
Jack “It is a lot of money.” Nikki “I know $70 million.” Jack
“You can cover it?” Nikki “No but Brad can.”
“I can cover half.” Jack “No way, you are one thing, Carlton
is another.” Nikki “Jack,
it is perfect, I would work with you.”
“You wouldn’t have to work with Brad at all.”
Jack “There must be someone else who has that kind of money
besides Carlton?” Nikki
“This is perfect, don’t you see.”
Jack “I know, Catherine Chancellor.”
“I have to talk to the bank tomorrow, if it doesn’t go well,
then…” “You have given me a back up plan, thank you.”
“You have made my day and my year.”
(He kisses her on the cheek)
and Tomas are getting ready to leave Paul shows them out and tells them to
drive carefully. After they
are gone, Christine says, “That was a wonderful evening.”
“I didn’t know you had read Tomas’s work?” Paul “I am
just a romantic at heart.” Christine “Prove it.”
(Paul kisses Christine.)
and Sharon’s House:
Nick “That is one happy little girl.”
Sharon “She sure is.” Nick “It makes me feel really good when
she calls me daddy.” “What’s going on?”
“You seemed a little down when you came home.”
“And then when Cassie mentioned Megan’s name you reacted.”
Sharon “I ran into Megan.” “Everything
is out in the open now.” “Tricia told Megan everything.” Nick
“Everything?” Sharon “everything except confessing to killing
Tony.” “But I have a
feeling, no matter what else happens, Megan will always blame Tricia.”
Nick “Well, I guess it all worked out, you should have some peace of
mind.” Sharon “I guess I
should but I didn’t want things to work out like they did.”
“I didn’t want them to turn out this way.”
(Nick holds Sharon).
“There is no way to bring Tony back and Tricia is taking responsibility
for her actions.” “All I am tying to make you understand is that she
has problems and she is not hiding them any more.” Megan “What about
the last time she had problems?” “She was anxious and edgy, then she
was better.” “My husband
dies and then she is her old self again.” “What will it take this
time?” Ryan “Tricia agreed to see a therapist.” Megan “And that
will make it all better, some miraculous cure?” Ryan “It could
happen.” Megan “She will be absolved of any blame?” Ryan “Of
course not, she will live with this for the rest of her life.” Megan
“Just like the rest of us.” Ryan “It is a step, something
positive.” Megan “I understand where you are coming from, and I am
glad you are standing by Tricia.” “But I am coming from a different
position.” “What I lost, I can’t get back!” “You have to
understand that.” “If you want to help me begin to heal..”
Ryan “What?” Megan “Talk to your boss, I need an entry level
position.” “Just enough
to keep my head above water.” “Anywhere but here.”
Ryan “I will see what I can do.” Megan “I am so tired, this
day has been exhausting.” Ryan “Go ahead to bed and I will talk to you
tomorrow.” She heads out of the living room on her way out she says,
“Please, get me that job.”

“I just wanted to call and say good night, and hear your voice.”
Victor “Well, I like hearing your voice too.”
“How about we meet for breakfast tomorrow at 8:30?” Ashley
“That would be lovely.” “How did your dinner go with Diane?”
Victor “I think it went well.” “Things
were a little tricky at first but I am looking forward to seeing you.”

She picks up the contract she signed and throws it across the room.
