Neil refuses to keep quiet about Nikki giving money to Jabot. Victoria thinks that if she can find the person that gave Neil the information, she will persuade the person to change his information. It would involve a fabrication of paperwork. She is willing to bribe the person. Neil thinks that what she is saying is unethical and illegal. Neil refuses to do it. He has knocked himself out for the company and will not cross this line, even for her. He will give her another 24 hours and then he will go to her father.
