Young & The Restless Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Sharon: Hey, you two. That’s a nice surprise.
Mariah: Well, it wouldn’t feel like home if I didn’t come to crimson lights and have my special, so…
Sharon: Well, welcome home, sweetheart. Your favorite’s coming right up. Did you, uh, manage to have a nice time at abby’s?
Mariah: Uh, yeah. Yeah, sure.
Tessa: It was really nice. Abby went all out, of course, because that’s what she always does.
Sharon: Um, hey, mariah, what size drink do you want?
Sharon: Uh, I know. Uh, how about I surprise you with my world-famous special double mocha? Mariah? What’s wrong?
[ Footsteps approaching ]
Abby: I am happy to report that the man of the hour is napping.
Devon: Oh, that’s good. I can’t blame him. It’s got to be exhausting being the center of attention like that.
Abby: Well, you got to admit, he’s pretty good at it.
Devon: He’s great at it, actually.
[ Both laugh ]
Abby: Now I am going to break in my new baby monitor.
Devon: Nice. Very nice. That party was a lot of fun. I think everybody had a really good time.
Abby: Even mariah?
Devon: What do you mean?
Abby: I feel like she’s going through a hard time — and not just with the kidnapping. And I could be off, but I’m sensing that you’re going through a hard time, too?
Faith: Hi, moses.
Moses: Good news?
Faith: I got a text from mariah’s girlfriend. They’re at crimson lights.
Moses: Oh, so they finally let her out of the hospital?
Faith: I cannot wait to see her. Do you want to come with me?
Moses: Oh, no. I don’t want to get in the way of your family reunion.
Faith: No, you wouldn’t be. I want mariah to get to know you.
Moses: Yeah, but after everything she’s been through, I’m sure she just wants to be around people she’s close with right now.
Faith: Yeah. You’re right. I hadn’t thought about that.
Moses: But I’ll catch up with you afterward.
Faith: What will you do while you wait?
Moses: Maybe I’ll start brainstorming. I did promise you that I’d come up with a cool idea for our first date.
Faith: Then I’ll see you soon.
Adam: [ Breathes deeply ]
[ Knock on door ]
[ Sighs ] Okay. What are you going to try to arrest me for this time?
Brushing only reaches
25% of your mouth.
Rey: Glad we’re getting off to a good start.
Adam: Mm-hmm. Well, I’m happy to have a do-over if, uh — what is this? That’s connor’S.
Rey: Yeah. I’m returning it.
[ Cap thuds ] I ran into him in the park earlier. I hadn’t seen him since we got back from minnesota. Told me how much fun he’d had at lacrosse camp. Anyhow, when he took off with his nanny, I noticed he’d forgotten his cap.
Adam: Uh-huh. I remember when I bought this for connor. He wouldn’t take it off for a week. He slept in it, took a bath in it. It’s his favorite. He would, uh, be crushed if he lost it.
Rey: Well, crisis averted.
Adam: Mm. I’m sure that he’ll want to thank you.
Rey: It’s not a problem.
Adam: Mm-hmm. Hey, and my dad told me about what happened to mariah and how you helped track her down. Sounds like you deserve some major props.
Rey: Devon hamilton’s the real hero. Make a pretty good detective. He had a feeling about stitch, and he never let it go.
Adam: Well, I had no idea that things had gotten so far off course.
Rey: You say that as if you were expecting updates. Why would you think you’re part of the inner circle?
Adam: Because I care?
Rey: About mariah or about sharon?
Adam: [ Chuckles ] Well, would you look at that. That is the longest conversation we’ve had without sharon coming up. Sure was nice while it lasted, rey, but your jealousy is constant.
Devon: No, abby. If it ever seems like I’m going through a hard time, it’s really just ’cause I’m trying to figure out the best way to support you.
Abby: Well, you’re my friend, like always.
Devon: Yeah. I know. But you’re a new mom, and you have a baby for the first time. And that’s — you know, that’s uncharted territory for you.
Abby: I’m still the same person.
Devon: Okay, well, say that to me at 4:00 in the morning when you’ve had no sleep.
Abby: Be serious.
Devon: I am being very serious. I — you know, you’ve —
[ Sighs ] You’ve waited for this moment for a long time, and now your son is here, um, but chance isn’T. And, you know, you’re gonna have to figure out how to be a parent without your partner, at least for the time being.
Abby: Women have had babies with or without partners for centuries.
Devon: But it doesn’t make things any easier for you. And I don’t know how to be. I don’t want to burden you by being over here too much. And at the same time, I don’t want to just leave you hanging, so…
Abby: You could never be a burden. I want you to be over here anytime that you want to be over here. You’re my best friend. And I can talk to you about things that I can’t talk about with mariah or nina or even my mom.
Abby: Definitely. And I hope that doesn’t change because of all of this. I mean, I hope you don’t start hiding things from me or being afraid that I’m overwhelmed.
Devon: Open and honest. It’s a deal.
Sharon: So? What’s the verdict?
Mariah: This tastes… exactly the same, which is incredibly reassuring.
Sharon: Well, that’s good to know. But you still haven’t answered my question about what’s going on with you.
Mariah: Oh, that? I just spaced out earlier. It’s really nothing. Everything’s been such a whirlwind since abby and devon found me in that room.
Sharon: I can tell when something’s on your mind. I mean, if you’re not ready to talk about it, um — you know, I am your mother, so there’s no reason to hold back.
Mariah: I have been struggling to get on top of my emotions, yeah. Um… it’s been difficult, you know? I was just in that room for so long, you know, just bowie and me.
Sharon: Well, do you feel comfortable telling us more about how you spent your time?
Mariah: Yeah, um… I mostly talked to the baby. You know, I made promises. I promised that I was gonna keep him safe, that we were gonna make it out of it alive. There was no way that I was gonna break my word, so…
Tessa: That’s a lot of pressure to put on yourself, especially when you didn’t know what was happening.
Mariah: Well, it was my job. It was…more than a job. He was everything to me. He was my reason for living. And then a last-minute rescue, giving birth under crazy circumstances, being whisked to the hospital — it was all very intense and urgent. And then bowie — dominic — goes home with his mother. And now what?
Sharon: You bonded with that baby. And now you feel like something’s been taken from you. I brought in ensure max protein,
Devon: Some of those things you said about mariah have me a little bit concerned, though. What have you seen?
Abby: I was in the room with her and she woke up from a nightmare and she looked so lost. She was inconsolable, and — I don’t know — I just — I’ve been around her, and I feel like she’s just pretending to be okay when she’s really not.
Devon: I mean, that’s pretty understandable, given what she went through, you know?
Abby: I mean, she’s a strong woman, but what she went through — I mean, that would test anyone.
Devon: You think there’s more to it?
Abby: [ Sighs ] I don’t know. I-I can’t put my finger on it, but, I mean, I’m thinking about it, and she was locked in a tiny room. She was trying to protect dominic, and she had no one to talk to. She didn’t even know if anyone was looking for her.
Devon: I’m sure she felt like it was just her and that baby against the whole world.
Abby: Then she gives birth and she has to hand the baby over and — I mean, it’s got to be an overwhelming feeling.
Devon: I think that when stitch took her, he also took her away from all of her friends and her family that she actually wanted to spend time with, you know? I think she really wanted to make plans with you guys and go shopping for the baby and, you know, go to doctor’s appointments together ’cause those last few weeks of being pregnant — that’s an important time.
Abby: That’s true, yeah.
Devon: And even though she’s back and she’s safe, she still has some things to work through. But at least we know that it has nothing to do with you and it has nothing to do with the baby. It’s just about what stitch put her through.
Abby: I hope you’re right.
Devon: I mean, there’s a way to find out. You could just sit her down, have a face-to-face and see if she opens up to you. I actually think that she would really appreciate knowing how concerned you are.
Mariah: There’s a bond. It’s real. And I know I’m not supposed to. He’s not my baby. I — I know that.
Tessa: Love is never a bad thing. And feeling a bond — that’s okay, right?
Sharon: Of course.
Mariah: So, what am i supposed to do with all these feelings?
Sharon: You gave birth to that baby, and you have a connection that’s never gonna go away, that’s lifelong, you know? Only this is different because he’s abby’s son. But he wouldn’t be here without you.
Mariah: [ Sniffles ] I have to keep reminding myself that his name is not bowie.
Sharon: No, that — you don’T. You can call the little guy whatever you want because when he grows up, you can use that nickname, and it’ll be a special thing just between the two of you.
Tessa: I mean, it’s the coolest nickname ever. He’ll thank you.
Sharon: Right now, you need to do something, something for yourself. You need to go to abby and be honest with her about how you’re feeling.
Mariah: I — I don’t know if I can.
Sharon: It’s really important. You need to talk to her about this bond that you feel with the baby, this connection. You know what? She’s gonna be very supportive.
Mariah: Mom, I just don’t know.
Sharon: She knows what you did for her. She’s your friend. She wants what’s best for you.
Mariah: [ Sighs ] How is that you always have the best advice?
Faith: Tessa told me you were here. I missed you so much.
Mariah: Oh, I missed you, too.
Adam: Not everything in the world revolves around sharon. Abby is my sister. So that makes that little bundle of joy my nephew.
Rey: Oh. I forgot how close you and abby are, always hanging out.
Adam: And I do care about what happens to mariah.
Rey: Because she’s sharon’s daughter. Come on, man. Mariah wouldn’t even be on your radar if she wasn’t connected to sharon. It’s not like you have this reputation for caring about other people.
Adam: So, you’re saying that I should just hit the off switch on my feelings, that sharon doesn’t deserve any of my concern?
Rey: That’s not what I said.
Adam: But it’s exactly what you meant, rey. Okay, the history that sharon and I have — you can’t erase something like that. Sharon is the most decent, loving person that I know, and i only care about what is best for her and the people that matter to her. So, you can either accept that, or you can fly into a fit of rage every time that you hear my name, and we can go round and around in this circle until the end of time. It’s your call.
Frank is a fan of fast.
He’s a fast talker.
[ Laughter ]
Sharon: I’m surprised you didn’t want to get in on that over there.
Tessa: Well, I could say the same about you.
Sharon: I was tempted to join them, but I think they deserve this time together.
[ Laughter ]
Tessa: And that’s why.
Mariah: You do realize your pledge to torture and destroy stitch would get us both locked away forever?
Faith: [ Chuckles ]
Mariah: But I love how protective you are.
Faith: Where is he?
Mariah: Um… sorry. Uh, he’s gone. Yeah, and hopefully we will never have to be worried about him again.
Faith: Are you okay? Mom and dad didn’t tell me much because they don’t want me to freak out. But they don’t have to keep things from me.
Mariah: Cut them some slack. You had a rough year, alright?
Faith: But I survived. And I’m stronger because of it. I put all of that darkness behind me. And that is why I want to know what happened to you. We’re sisters. I want to help you.
Mariah: Alright. Why don’t we do a girls’ night really soon? And I will — I will tell you everything. I promise. Just not right this minute because it’s still a little fresh.
Faith: Whenever you’re ready. And don’t feel too pressured to move on. It’s not like you can just snap your fingers and make all those memories go away. Just focus on all of the people that care about you right now, and it’ll make it easier.
Mariah: Wow. You’ve changed in the short time that I was away.
Faith: [ Chuckles ] How?
Mariah: You’re more solid, positive, sure of things. Yeah.
Faith: [ Chuckles ]
Mariah: Would this have anything at all to do with moses?
Faith: [ Laughs ] It has so much to do with him, it’s crazy.
Devon: Alright. Thank you. I appreciate it. Yeah. Yeah. I know. I wish that, uh — I wish it were better news, too. That’s okay. We’ll do what we can. Alright. Take care.
Devon: Yeah. It’s, uh — it’s not the update we were hoping for.
Abby: What did she say?
Devon: Chance has been forced to go even deeper undercover, and she hasn’t been able to get any messages to him.
Abby: Okay, well, um, that’s — that’s not the news that we wanted to hear, but, you know, things — things change so quickly.
Abby: You know, I am — I am really trying to be patient. But chance deserves to know that his son was born, and that baby sleeping upstairs — he deserves to meet his father.
Devon: I know, abby. You just have to remember that there’s nothing that chance wants more than to come back here to you. Don’t forget that, okay?
Abby: I know. I know that. But it’s just so damn hard.
Devon: I know it is, and you know what? Maybe we just have to think about this in a different way. It might sound crazy, but maybe it’s a good thing that he doesn’t know about dominic being born.
Abby: I can’t believe that you’d say that.
Devon: If he’s had to go that deep undercover to where he can’t even get any messages, I imagine that things have gotten pretty intense for him. And if he were to find out that the baby was born, that might just completely distract him, take his head out of the game. You know? It might even make his situation even more dangerous. We don’t know. I just think that it’s probably best if we don’t make him feel any more guilty than he already feels about not being here for you.
Abby: You always know the right thing to say.
Rey: You got enough to worry about in your own family. You don’t need to insert yourself into anyone else’S.
Adam: What is that supposed to mean?
Rey: It means stop worrying about sharon’s daughter. Worry about your son.
Adam: Why is that? Because he lost his hat?
Rey: When I talked to him at the park, I could tell something was going on with him. You’re here. Chelsea’s out of the state. That can get confusing for a kid.
Adam: Look, my family situation is under control. Thank you very much.
Rey: Yeah? Do you have it under control? Because it didn’t sound that way to me.
Adam: Get out of my office, rey.
Rey: I will. But this needs to be said. Connor’s wondering when the three of you are gonna be a family again. He’s a smart kid. He can sense that things are different. Look, I’m not here to tell you how to handle your business. But I am here to tell you that things need handling. That should be your focus, not what’s going on in sharon’s life.
[ Door slams ] I order my groceries online now.
“The young and the restless”
Faith: What’s going on here? Am I interrupting something?
Devon: That depends. I don’t know. How well do we know this — this young lady here to share with her what we’re talking about?
Moses: Ohh. You know, I’m not too sure, but maybe we should be a little vague with the detail, just in case.
Faith: You guys! What’s going on?
Devon: I was just telling moses here that I called his mom now that he’s decided to take a step back from pursuing a career in medicine.
Moses: Which was the sole reason she let me move to genoa city in the first place — to learn from nate.
Devon: Well, it’s not the only reason that she had you come out here. She also wanted you to be around the rest of your family — lily, me, and nate. But, uh, I told her that even though he’s not trying to be a doctor still, it’s gonna benefit a lot from learning the ropes of hamilton-winters.
Faith: So, does that mean…
Devon: Well, we don’t know if he’s sticking around yet ’cause his mom didn’t commit to anything on the phone. So it’s gonna be up to you, moses, to sell her that you want to stay here, if that is what you really want to do.
Moses: Yeah. That’s what I want.
Sharon: I’m glad you and faith got some time to catch up.
Mariah: Yeah, I wish I could bottle her, carry her around with me. She’s such a light.
Sharon: I know. I’m really proud of both of my girls. Is everything okay with tessa?
Mariah: Uh, yeah. She’s just, uh — she’s canceling her gig tonight. I told her it wasn’t necessary, but she wants to spend as much time with me as she can.
Sharon: And how do you feel about that?
Mariah: I hate it.
[ Laughs ] Don’t get me wrong. I’m grateful that she wants to take care of me, but we’ve worked so hard on her career up to this point, and I would really hate it if she started canceling gigs right now because of me.
Sharon: Well, you might have to be patient with all of us. We probably seem a little clingy right now, but that’s because when you disappeared, we were all really upset and frustrated for weeks, thinking that you were pushing us away. And then we realized that you were in real danger, we were kicking ourselves for not realizing that stitch had been manipulating us all this time.
Mariah: Yeah, I-I really don’t want you to feel guilty. I-I don’t want to have to keep reassuring people that I don’t blame them.
Sharon: Okay. I’ll do my best to stop blaming myself.
Mariah: Now that I talked to faith — uh, you and nick didn’t let her know how bad things had gotten.
Sharon: Uh, maybe it was naive to think I could try to protect her, but that was my instinct.
Mariah: You know, she’s growing up really fast. And she’s stronger than you think, so you should treat her that way.
[ Footsteps approaching ]
Sharon: Oh. Hi.
Adam: Mariah, I am so happy that you are safe and you’re back home where you belong.
Mariah: Thank you.
Adam: Did I say something wrong?
Mariah: Yeah, sorry if I’m a little tense around people like you right now, but I was just freed from the clutches of a madman who kidnapped me without a care for the life of an unborn baby because he wanted to win back a certain woman and get her to like him again.
Adam: I am so sorry for everything that you’ve gone through. I was just trying to express some sympathy. I get that I’m not one of your favorite people.
Sharon: I know that he wouldn’t try to do anything to make you uncomfortable.
Mariah: [ Scoffs ]
Adam: I won’t interrupt you anymore.
Mariah: You don’t always have to take his side, you know.
Tessa: Is everything okay?
Sharon: Look, it’s over, okay? I wasn’t taking adam’s side. I was just trying to diffuse the tension. I know he’s trying to make a change, and it makes it harder when no one will let him.
Mariah: Point taken. How’d your phone call go?
Tessa: Uh, they wouldn’t let me out of the gig.
Mariah: Good, because I feel fine. I just need to get home and pump for the baby, like, immediately, so…
Sharon: Will you please let me know if you need anything?
Mariah: Yes. I will. I love you.
Sharon: I love you. What are you doing here? I thought you said that you were gonna keep your distance.
Adam: I’ve known for a while that I need to tell connor about what is going on with me and chelsea. So I came here to get your advice as his former therapist on how to go about that. But clearly that was a mistake. Guess I should have kept on walking.
Devon: I have to take off, but I want you to let me know the second you talk to your mom.
Moses: Yeah, I will.
Devon: Alright, and if she has any questions or concerns about your internship at hamilton-winters, just tell her to give me a call.
Moses: Yeah, I’ll call her today.
Devon: I’m glad you’re sticking around, man.
Devon: And I know I’m not the only one. See ya. Hey.
Devon: How you doing? You guys getting some fresh air?
Mariah: Uh, yeah, for a little bit, and then we got to head back to the chancellor house.
Tessa: Yeah, I got to run to the club to do my sound check for the gig tonight.
Mariah: Uh, how was the rest of the party?
Devon: It was — it was alright. It kind of died down after you left.
Tessa: Well, we are traditionally known as the life of the party, so no surprise there.
Devon: [ Chuckles ] Hey, I didn’t get a chance to say this to you earlier, um, but if you ever need a shoulder to lean on or anything like that, you know I’m here for you.
Mariah: Thank you. Yeah. But you’ve already done so much for me. And I never thanked you for everything you did to find me and supporting me through labor, no matter how much I screamed. Everything’s fine. Everything’s gonna be fine. I have the best support team in the world, you included. You’ll always be the guy who delivered my baby.
Tessa: Uh, well, I should get you home.
Devon: Is everything alright?
Mariah: Yeah. Uh, yeah. I just — I have to get home to pump for bow– for dominic. And, uh… you’ll always be a hero in my book.
Devon: Oh, come on. I was just in the right place at the right time. And, believe me, I’m damn glad that I was, but that doesn’t make me a hero. I just got lucky this time. But I’ve got stuff I struggle with, just like everybody else.
When you really need to sleep
Faith: Moses, this talk with your mom isn’t just a normal phone call. This is the most important phone call of your entire life.
Moses: Are you trying to make me nervous?
Faith: The opposite. I’m trying to make sure this is an unqualified success.
Moses: Okay. How you gonna do that?
Faith: We’ll rehearse it. I’ll play your mother, and you’ll be you.
Moses: [ Laughs ]
Faith: What’s so funny?
Moses: You — you don’t look a thing like my mom.
Faith: Not the point, okay? I promise this will help. Okay. Pretend to call me. Take out your phone. Dial the numbeR.
Moses: You can’t be serious.
Faith: The closer this is to the real thing, the better it’ll go.
Moses: Okay. Hey, ma.
Faith: Moses, your brother tells me you no longer want to be a doctor. So, what’s the real reason why you want to stay in genoa city?
Moses: She doesn’t talk like that.
[ Chuckles ] Okay. Um, yeah. Devon offered me an internship at hamilton-winters.
Faith: Really? Are you sure you don’t want to just waste your time on girls?
Moses: [ Laughs ] Okay. There is this one girl. But she’s definitely not a waste of time.
Faith: Really? Tell me all about this girl who thinks she’s good enough for my son.
Moses: Okay, now you’re just messing with me.
Faith: I’m waiting, moses. If you don’t tell me all about this girl, I will make you take the next flight back to new york.
Moses: Okay. Her name is faith newman, and she’s one in a trillion.
[ Chuckles ] She’s got a great family. Dad even used to work with her grandfather. She’s smart. She’s beautiful. And maybe I’m the one who doesn’t deserve her.
[ Chuckles ] She’s funny. She’s fun. She loves reading and movies. She makes me happy. Honest, thoughtful, fearless.
[ Chuckles ]
Faith: She sounds nice.
Moses: Oh, she is. And she’s one of the reasons why I can’t come home yet.
Faith: Well, what about me, moses?
Moses: Well, you’ll come and visit, ma. But this is an incredible opportunity for me. This place, these people, these families — they’re a part of dad, which means they’re a part of me, too, right? So, you taught me well, and i know you trust me.
Faith: I do.
Moses: I might be gone for a while, but you’ll never lose me. So…say yes, please. How was that?
Faith: You’ve got this. You’ll do great.
Sharon: I’m really glad that mariah and faith got to spend some time together.
Rey: They’re each other’s best medicine.
Sharon: I don’t know what i would do if I didn’t have those two girls in my life. I’ll never stop thanking my handsome husband for bringing mariah back home safe.
Rey: Well, thank you, but i think devon deserves a lot of the credit. I should have paid more attention to your intuition that something was wrong.
Sharon: You were just following the evidence, and there really wasn’t much to go on, other than gut feelings. And it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that mariah is home now, and hopefully she’ll be able to get through this without being scarred for life.
Rey: Yeah, I mean, any mother would be worried about that, but mariah is a warrior. That’s what got her through this ordeal. What she needs the most now is to know that the people around her love her and have her back.
Sharon: She does. For sure.
Rey: Uh, the way you said that… did something else happen today while mariah was here?
Sharon: Well, you’re very perceptive. Adam stopped by, and things got tense.
Rey: Tense how?
Sharon: Well, he’s never been her favorite person, and mariah went from zero to 100 in about one second. She was hostile and aggressive, and then when I tried to keep the peace, she accused me of taking his side. And I wasn’T. It was really all about mariah’s reaction. I hope I haven’t upset you now.
Rey: It’s — it’s fine.
Sharon: I know you think that mariah is a warrior, and she certainly is, but it’s gonna take a lot for her to get through this. And I just hope she gets the help she needs, whatever that is, a therapist.
Rey: Me too. And I am sure you’re gonna steer her in the right direction. Yeah, I actually had my own run-in with adam today.
Rey: Mm-hmm. I saw connor at the park.
Sharon: Well, how’s he doing?
Rey: He seemed to have a great time at camp. He left his baseball cap behind, so I decided to drop it off with adam at newman media.
Sharon: Oh. How’d that go?
Rey: [ Chuckles ] Well, we ended up getting into it about his refusal to stay out of your life. So of course he comes over here and tries to get in the middle of things with you and mariah.
Sharon: Adam told me that he came here to get my advice on how to talk to connor about chelsea.
Rey: I am not surprised. I gave him my two cents about what I thought connor was going through, and he comes right over here to try to rope you into it.
Sharon: You know, I believe adam when he says that he wants to become a better person. I just don’t know if he has the skill set yet.
Adam: [ Sighs ]
Abby: Hi. You ready for a little nap? Okay. Mommy will be right back. I love you.
Mariah: Abby? Abby?
[ Gasps ] Hi, little man. Hi, handsome. Oh, yes. Very handsome.
[ Chuckles ] Did you miss me? ‘Cause I missed you so much. Yeah. Shh.
[ Humming tessa’s lullaby ]
[ Humming continues ]
[ Humming continues ]
Devon: Welcome to the world, little man.
[ All chuckle ] (Upbeat pop music in background throughout)
