Young & The Restless Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Kyle: I’m not sure how long we’ll be waiting for grandpa, but in the meantime, I got a heads-up that mrs. Martinez made some of your favorite cookies. So how about you go to the kitchen and get some of those and go play in your old bedroom?
Kyle: [ Chuckles ]
[ Sighs ] While I wait to hear grandpa’s big news.
Nikki: I cannot believe what I’m seeing.
Diane: [ Sighs ] I know this must come as a shock.
Nikki: “Shock”?! Shock doesn’t begin to cover it. What the hell makes you think you can show your face in genoa city after the devastation you have caused?
Sally: [ Sighs ] I know I keep saying it, but it is just so awful. Poor sharon. How long were she and rey married?
Adam: Um…little over a year.
Sally: I mean, I don’t know sharon very well, but whenever i saw her at the coffee house, she always just seemed so content, happy and at peace, like she was genuinely grateful to be exactly where she was in her life. And rey just adored her — that much was obvious. And vice versa.
Adam: Well, sharon must be reeling. I’m just glad that noah is home from london, and it’ll help her to have all her kids around her.
Sally: Have you reached out to her?
Adam: I thought about it, but I don’t think that would go over well with her family, given my history with her. You know, I think she considers us friends now, but I just —
Sally: Wow, I am used to people thinking the worst of you, but seriously? You can’t even express your condolences to a friend?
Adam: I don’t want to do anything that will add to her emotional burden. She’s got enough to handle right now.
Sharon: [ Clears throat ] Thank you for insisting that i eat something. Um…you’re right, I need to keep my strength up. Rey would’ve said the same thing. And I feel better now, so… we can leave.
Nick: Sharon, there’s no rule about seeing rey at the morgue. If it’s too much for you, i mean, the last time you saw him, you told him you loved him. If you want that to be your goodbye, when you were happy, then just do it.
Sharon: No. No, I need to do this. I need to see him one more time.
[ Sighs ] Thank you. Thank you for being here. Thank you for driving me. I don’t think I could do this without your support.
Nick: Whatever you need.
Sharon: Thank you.
[ Knock on door ]
Victoria: Hey. I’m so sorry.
This is the story of two homes.
Sally: If I were you, I would not be worried about what her family’s perception might be. Sharon will know that your concern for her is genuine, and if it makes her feel even just a little bit better, that’s all that really matters. It’s never wrong to tell your loved ones that you’re there for them.
Adam: Well, thank you for that.
Sally: You’re surprised?
Adam: [ Chuckles ] Um, a little bit.
Sally: Why? Look, I don’t have an issue with the fact that you still care about your ex.
Adam: Well, everyone else seems to.
Sally: Well, I hoped you would’ve realized by now that i am not like everyone else.
Adam: Hey. I do.
Sally: Well, I would’ve been a lot more concerned if you didn’t give a damn about what sharon was going through, ’cause honestly, I can’t imagine anything worse. Do you really think your family’s gonna have an issue with you reaching out to her after what you just did to save victoria and the company from ashland?
Adam: I am still wondering if he somehow caused the car crash. What was he doing anywhere near victoria? That son of a bitch was supposed to be gone a long time ago, and — unbelievable.
Sally: Adam, adam —
Adam: Hey! We made a deal. You were supposed to leave town. You were paid half a billion dollars to do it, so why are you still here?
Nick: Vick, how you feeling? Are you sure you should be out and about?
Victoria: I’m fine. I, um…I haven’t been able to stop thinking about rey since ashland told me what happened. I really — I — I can’t wrap my mind around it.
Sharon: Yeah, neither can I.
Victoria: It’s just not fair. I can’t imagine what you’re going through, and I just wanted you to know that if you need me for anything, if there’s anything that I can do…
Sharon: Um…well, thank you. You know, I’m — I’m fine. I have a lot of love and support around me, and nick has been wonderful. And the kids have been just a well of strength for me to draw from.
Victoria: Yes, your family always does come together when the times get tough. You and nick should be really proud about that. But if there is anything that i can do to help, I mean, if — if you need me to bring meals or maybe hang out with faith, if there’s anything at all you can think of…
Nick: That’s — that’s very kind of you, but I think we’ve got everything handled. We were actually just about to take off.
Sharon: Um, you know, actually, I forgot something in my room. I’ll be right back.
Nikki: Where in god’s name have you been all this time?
Diane: Living a quiet life under the radar while I pulled myself back together.
Nikki: Oh, you had to fake your own death to pull yourself together?
Diane: I needed a fresh start.
Nikki: How lovely for you. So you just gallivanted off to who knows where without a care in the world, leaving a trail of destruction in your wake. Back here, people’s lives were upended. I was charged with murder, which I’m sure you were thrilled to hear about that turn of events.
Diane: [ Sighs ] No part of this was enjoyable for me. I thought jack might have explained why I came back, what my intentions are.
Jack: I have no interest in make excuses for you.
Phyllis: Yeah, I second that. You decided to come back here and face the music. Start singing.
Diane: [ Scoffs ] Nikki, I was utterly desperate. I didn’t know what I should do. I just knew that I had to get away.
Nikki: Well, then why didn’t you just go away? Nobody would’ve objected to that.
Diane: Because I had crossed some very powerful people, and i was terrified that they’d never leave me alone. Okay, maybe it wasn’t rational, but I wasn’t thinking rationally. I had boxed myself into a corner.
Nikki: Oh, and apparently you decided that the only way to get out of that box was to ruin my life. You know, if you had to play dead, you could’ve had the courtesy to stay that way. I have moderate to severe ulcerative colitis.
Victoria: I really wish so much that I was able to stay with rey after the crash, and that way I could tell sharon that he wasn’t alone.
Nick: Come on, that was beyond your control. You were unconscious. You were lucky to survive that accident yourself. I still don’t understand what happened. I mean, why was ashland there? Was he chasing you? Did you force you off the side of the road?
Victoria: No. He was following me. I didn’t realize it. He said he was worried about me driving in the fog and being so upset.
Nick: Because you guys had it out at the office?
Nick: What’d he say to you?
Victoria: Nicholas, the details aren’t important now. I — I made it perfectly clear to him that things are over between us. But he’s right, I probably shouldn’t have been out driving in that state. You know, mom tells me that i shouldn’t feel guilty, but I do. If I weren’t driving, if i weren’t on that road…
Nick: Vick, this isn’t your fault. All of this is on ashland. None of it would’ve happened if it weren’t for him.
Sharon: Sorry, um…couldn’t help overhearing. I’m not looking for someone to blame. It was an accident, that’s all. I don’t want you to feel guilty. That wouldn’t help anyone. We’re all experiencing a lot of hurt as it is.
Victoria: I really appreciate you saying that. I didn’t come here looking for you to make me feel better.
Sharon: I know why you came. I appreciate the gesture, but, um… nick, I’m ready to go.
Ashland: It sounds like you need to reread our agreement. There was no mention of me leaving genoa city. I agreed to surrender control of newman/locke and to have my marriage to victoria annulled. That was it.
Adam: Why would you even want to stay in town? There’s nothing left for you here. Your career is over. Your former wife despises you. Oh. So it is about victoria. I mean, what move could you possibly have left when it comes to her? Were you angry that she rejected you? Now you want to punish her?
Ashland: Why do I get the feeling you wouldn’t mind if that was my motive? Because, adam, you have no affection for your sister. You just want to see her brought down a peg in any way possible.
Adam: That is rich coming from you. And I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m not bringing my sister down. I’m doing the opposite. I actually lifted her up by eliminating you from her life — an annoying parasite who latched onto its host and wouldn’t let go.
Ashland: I’m sure she’s very grateful to you for that.
Adam: What’s with the little bandage on your hand and the boot on your foot? This another bid for sympathy?
Ashland: I was injured pulling your sister from the wreckage of her car.
Adam: Well, excuse me for not taking your word for it. I don’t know anyone who would believe you at this point. Well, you’re probably just faking your injuries like you did your cancer. And even if you did rescue victoria, it’s not gonna be enough to win her back because there is nobody in this world that holds a grudge longer than my sister.
Ashland: You would know.
Adam: Look, why don’t you just do us all a favor and get the hell out of town?
Diane: I understand how you must feel.
Nikki: No, you don’T. You don’t have a clue. You have no idea how furious i am.
Diane: I bet you’re about to make that very clear.
[ Chuckles ]
Nikki: Your quote-unquote death set off a chain of events that wreaked havoc with my entire family, starting with legal charges for me and my husband.
Diane: That were dropped.
Nikki: Yes, you must have been so disappointed that victor and I weren’t given a life sentence for your murder. But you’ll be happy to know that we still suffered greatly. Just the anxiety and fear was agonizing. Nobody really knew what had happened or who was responsible for it. And, of course, your partner-in-crime deacon took full advantage of that.
Phyllis: Oh, wait a second, i have a question about that. Was it your idea to have deacon blackmail nikki for a murder she didn’t commit?
Diane: No, it wasn’T. Nikki, I know you won’t believe me, but it’s the truth.
[ Cellphone chimes ] I was a wreck at the time. I was barely hanging on. I had no control over what was happening back here.
Nikki: Well, you could’ve come forward. You could’ve let people know that you were alive and end this nightmare.
Jack: Okay, this is getting a little out of control. You wanted to see her for yourself, you’ve seen her. I am late for a meeting with someone.
Phyllis: Oh, the person we were talking about ear– okay.
Jack: Yeah, yeah. Why don’t we go now and you can pick this up later?
Nikki: Jack, you and phyllis go. I still have some things I want to talk to diane about.
Nikki: It’ll be fine. I promise.
Phyllis: Well, it’s not like nikki can be charged with the same murder twice, so…
Diane: [ Sighs ]
Phyllis: Just in case, I’m taking this lamp. I warned you not to come out of here.
Diane: Goodbye, phyllis.
Nikki: Have a seat. There are some things we have to get straight.
Diane: [ Sighs ] Phyllis was right about one thing — I put myself in this position by coming back here. I needed to be prepared for people’s reactions, however stressful they might be.
Nikki: Oh, I’m sorry, it’s stressful for you?
Diane: But it’s a relief to finally have a chance to explain what I did and try to at least make amends for it. I’m sure you can relate to that.
Nikki: Oh, please, don’t even think about comparing yourself to me.
Diane: Well, you’ve obviously grown and changed a lot in the years since we’ve seen each other. Back then, weren’t you drinking? You were violent.
Nikki: When I attacked you, I was acting in self-defense.
Nikki: So was I, and that’s what you need to understand. I was scared and I was trying to protect myself. Only everything I was trying wasn’t working. Deacon offered me an escape route, and, yes, I took it. He might’ve had his own reasons for doing what he did, probably had to do with his twisted relationship with you, but that’s between the two of you.
Nikki: Oh, don’t make it sound like we’re still involved. I haven’t given that man a moment’s thought in years.
Diane: All I know is he gave me a way out and a chance to start over, and I’m going to repay him the only way I can — by making the most of this new life and not repeating mistakes of the past.
Nikki: Hmm. Well, you know what, diane? I don’t believe one word of this. You are still the same manipulative, conniving little bitch you always were. And an apology tour isn’t really gonna cut it, because everybody in this town is gonna see right through you.
Chelsea: Hey. Do you — do you want to sit down? I can get your order.
Victoria: Oh, thank you. That’s not necessary. It really just looks worse than it is.
Chelsea: You got lucky.
Victoria: Yes, I did.
Chelsea: I’m sorry, that — I’m sorry, that came out wrong. I just — I’ve been a little off today. Adam told me about rey. It’s just so shocking and horrible.
Victoria: Yes, it is. I — I would think that rey’s death might seem strange to you, since you tried to end his life a year ago.
Victoria: Well, all I’m saying is that what happened last night is something that you tried to make happen before.
Chelsea: I wasn’t in my right mind. I never wanted rey to die. This is all hitting me very hard because rey was actually my friend. My good friend.
Adam: What could ashland hope to gain by sticking around? He’s ruined here, and victoria is done with him.
Sally: My guess is a man like that doesn’t have much experience coming out the loser, so maybe he still thinks he can snatch some sort of victory from the jaws of defeat. In any case, you should not let it get to you.
Adam: Well, it’s hard not to when he’s sitting on $500 million of newman money.
Victor: Hello, hello. Just came by to check in.
Adam: Well, it’s perfect timing because I was just about to call you. You will never believe who I ran into at society — ashland locke, bellied up to the bar, hanging out, having a cocktail.
Victor: Why is he still in town?
Adam: I don’t know. But he looked pretty damn comfortable. Downright smug, actually. I got the sense he was cooking something up, like he’s not done with us yet.
Victor: As if that bastard hasn’t done enough damage already. If he thinks he can take $500 million from me and mock me, he has another thing coming.
Sally: How is victoria doing?
Victor: Doing alright. I think rey’s death has added another layer of trauma to her. Otherwise, I think she’s okay. I just wonder if she knows that that bastard is still in town.
Adam: I’m not sure.
Victor: You know, we have to do everything in our power to keep him away from her, okay?
Adam: Mm-hmm. Speaking of rey, have you talked to sharon? I was thinking about stopping by to see her later and offer my condolences.
Victor: Son, I don’t think that’s a good idea.
Jack: It is good to have you back. Oh! You look good.
Kyle: You too, dad.
Jack: I think italy agrees with you.
Kyle: Summer and I are loving it, and she was disappointed she was too swamped with work to make the trip, but she asked me to give you a hug on her behalf.
Phyllis: Okay, I mean, it’s not the same thing, but I’ll take it. Taking care of my little girl?
Kyle: Like my life depends on it.
Jack: So where’s harrison?
Kyle: Upstairs playing.
Jack: Okay, eager as I am to see him, it gives us a chance to talk, then.
Kyle: Yeah, first, I just heard about rey. Lola posted about his passing on social media.
Jack: Oh, it is just heartbreaking, and I haven’t had a chance to talk to sharon yet.
Kyle: Yeah, I thought I’d call celeste and lola in a bit.
Jack: I’m sure they’d appreciate that. The few conversations I’ve had with celeste, it sounded like she had a very close bond with her son.
Phyllis: Yeah, when things like this happen, it makes you count your blessings, right?
Kyle: Absolutely. Family’s everything.
Phyllis: Yes, yes. I’m needed at the hotel, by the way, so I got to go. We’ll catch up later.
Jack: Thank you.
Kyle: So…since when does phyllis politely excuse herself?
Jack: What do you mean?
Kyle: She knows something i don’t, doesn’t she? And you wouldn’t have asked me to come all this way unless it was something major, so what’s going on, dad?
“The young and the restless”
will continue. (Cyclist) why is ice t in a speed walking crew?
Adam: Well, I admit, I have been debating with myself whether I should reach out to sharon.
Victor: Well, then your gut is telling you the right thing, okay? She has all the support she needs right now.
Sally: But couldn’t she always use more support? I mean, I’m just saying, why hold back?
Victor: If adam approached her now, a lot of people would misinterpret that and would think that he was being opportunistic.
Adam: I hope you’re not one of those —
Victor: No, son, I’m not. I appreciate the fact that you went your own way and you allowed sharon to do the same thing. It was the right thing to do.
Adam: Look, I just — I don’t want it to come off to her like I don’t care about what she is going through.
Victor: Son, I assure you, she knows the depths of your feelings. She doesn’t need any added conflict and stress. So let nicholas and her children comfort her now.
Chelsea: I know it must seem strange that rey and I became friends. Trust me, no one was more surprised than I was. I mean, he had every reason not to trust me. Yet, instead, he treated me with compassion, forgiveness. He was just a sweet man. Oh, and he was so good with connor.
[ Sighs ] That’s why he was on the road last night. He was about to pick us up for a hockey game.
Victoria: I had no idea.
Chelsea: He left the tickets at home, went back to get them, and never came back. I knew something was wrong. I knew he would never disappoint connor like that unless something terrible had happened.
[ Sighs ] Connor just adored him. He thought he hung the moon. Adam and I, we had to tell him earlier what happened, and it was really, really hard.
Victoria: I’m sorry for your loss.
Chelsea: It was a loss for everyone whose life he touched. Rey was just a great man. One of the greatest men I’ve ever known.
Nikki: I suppose I can understand jack feeling compelled to let you reach out to kyle. You are his mother, as unfortunate as that may be for him. But I don’t want you anywhere near my loved ones. Do you understand me? You stay away from victor and victoria and especially nicholas.
Diane: Hmm. Relax, I’ve got no designs on your husband or your son.
Nikki: And while you’re at it, you should probably avoid adam, too. As much as you thought people hated you back then, that’s nothing compared to how they’ll feel about you now.
Diane: Not everyone is as unforgiving as you.
Nikki: Oh, diane, you are in for a rude awakening. You’ll find no redemption here. As much trouble as your murder caused me and my family, we were so relieved to finally have you out of our lives. No one has ever wanted you here and no one ever will.
Jack: This is about what happened on my trip to los angeles after keemo died. And thank you again for stepping up business-wise. Gave me the space and time i needed to deal with my son’s passing.
Kyle: Of course, dad. Keemo’s been on my mind ever since you told me. Must have been incredibly painful for you to miss the chance to reconcile with him.
Jack: Yeah, it was a difficult time, but I’m grateful I got to know allie. Spent some time with her, got to know her — she’s a pretty amazing young woman. I hope you get to meet her soon.
Kyle: Is that what you wanted to talk to me about? Is there something about allie you want me to know?
Jack: No, that’s not it. I wanted you to know, though, how I first got to meet her so that you could understand the whole story…of who it was that led me to this discovery and why. We hit the bike trails every weekend
Phyllis: Okay, so take this to conference room B. Thank you. Oh, wow, hi. Lots of interesting people coming into my lobby today. How are you, ashland?
Ashland: Uh, I’m okay, thank you. Actually, I got a text from kyle this morning that he and harrison were coming into town, and now he’s not returning my texts or my phone calls.
Phyllis: Okay, what do you want me to do about it?
Ashland: Well, I was wondering if you had heard from him or from jack or if you knew where they were, what they’d be doing.
Phyllis: Um, I saw them earlier, and harrison, he was wiped out from the flight. He was taking a nap. He’s — he’s probably still napping. You should just wait for kyle’s response. You know, or I’ll just get with jack and we’ll get harrison and we’ll bring him to you. We’ll — we’ll come to your and victoria’s house.
Ashland: Okay, thank you.
Phyllis: I heard about the accident. Are you okay?
Ashland: Uh, minor burns, that’s all. Thank you, phyllis.
Jack: Keemo and I were not in touch with each other for many years. I didn’t even know he moved back to the states. In fact, I wouldn’t have known much about happened to him if i hadn’t gotten a cryptic, anonymous text.
Kyle: Okay, that’s strange.
Jack: So strange I almost didn’t respond. And when I did — or more accurately, when phyllis did — there were clues, there were hints that led me to allie. She was just as confused as i was, and it seemed for a time that I would never know who had sent me those mysterious texts.
Kyle: But you finally figured it out?
Jack: I did. The person sending me those texts, their reason for sending them…it was all about you.
Victoria: [ Sighs ] Daddy, what are you doing here?
Victor: My poor girl. Wanted to see how you are.
Victoria: I’m okay.
Victor: I’m glad to hear that. I just wanted you to know that ashland locke is still in town.
Victoria: I’m aware. He called me.
Victor: I paid that man $500 million to leave you alone. He knows it.
Victoria: Dad, please, don’t get frustrated. Ashland was just checking on me after the accident, and even if he did want something else, it’s not gonna happen. We’ve terminated his contract. Our marriage is being annulled. He has no more power over us.
Victor: Legally, you’re right. But I am afraid it’s a bit more complicated for you, right?
Victoria: I told you yesterday, I can’t just make my feelings for the man disappear. And that was before he saved my life. But it’s not an issue. I’m moving on. Ashland knows it, and so do I.
Victor: [ Sighs ] You’re saying that now. But is it gonna be that easy for you?
Nikki: What are you still doing here? Why haven’t you left town?
Ashland: That seems to be a popular question for me today.
Nikki: So answer it.
Ashland: The answer is simple. I’m still here in town because i love your daughter. My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…
Victoria: I am not the slightest bit tempted to trust ashland again. I’ve learned my lesson. I just…I wish I would’ve caught on a little sooner. I know, I know you tried to warn me, so you don’t have to remind me of that.
Victor: Didn’t come here to scold you, my sweetheart. That’s the farthest thing from my mind. I got to tell you, the hour between when your phone call to your mother was cut off and we found you…was arguably the most difficult moment of my life, okay? I’m so glad you’re alright.
Victoria: I’m sorry I scared you and mom. I’m sorry for so many things, dad.
Victor: Come here. I don’t want you to be sorry about a damn thing, okay? Everything will be alright.
Nikki: Your feelings are entirely irrelevant to me. My main concern is victoria. To protect her and help her heal. And the best way to do that is to keep her as far away from you as possible. I don’t ever want her to come face-to-face with you again.
Ashland: You didn’t seem to mind me being face-to-face with her last night. While I was saving her life.
Nikki: I appreciate you dragging her from the car. But that does not erase all of the things that you did leading up to that moment. Your lies, your deceit. The pain that you put victoria through. I will never forgive you for that. You say you love her? Then why would you insist on staying here and making things worse for her?
Ashland: That is not at all my goal. I want to make sure that victoria recovers fully from the accident, both physically and emotionally.
Nikki: You’re the last person to do that.
Ashland: I disagree.
Nikki: Her family will be the ones to help her recover, thank you.
Ashland: If you get your way, yes. But it’s not a forgone conclusion.
[ Sighs ] Victoria has free will and a beautiful, fiery, independent spirit. She will decide how she wants to deal with me. And quite frankly, I’m getting very tired of your family constantly complaining. You’re not gonna be able to get rid of me, short of murder. So I would suggest you get used to seeing my face around here.
Nikki: We’ll see about that.
Chelsea: Sharon. I don’t know what to say. There are no words. Rey was such a wonderful man.
Sharon: Thank you.
Chelsea: Uh…I mean, I don’t mean to intrude, I just wanted you to know how truly sorry i am.
Nick: Uh, sharon, why don’t you, uh, let me take you home?
Sharon: No, no, um…there’s some things that I want to do here. Plus, I want to talk to mariah about the wedding.
Chelsea: Oh, I’m sure that can wait. I mean, you’ve just been dealt this terrible blow. You should take as much time as you need to mourn your loss.
Sharon: I shouldn’t be mourning at all.
Diane: Jack, it’s me. I’m — I’m so anxious to see kyle and explain everything. Please — please let me know when he’s in town.
[ Sighs ]
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Kyle: Okay, I don’t understand how this mystery in los angeles connects back to me.
Jack: The person who wrote me these texts is someone we used to know. Someone who wants our forgiveness. It turns out these messages about keemo and allie were sort of a show of good faith.
Kyle: But why? I don’t get it.
Jack: Kyle, I’m gonna tell you who it is, but before I do, I want you to know opening or closing this door is completely up to you and I will support any decision you make.
Kyle: This story just keeps getting stranger and more confusing. Why don’t you just give it to me straight, please? Just tell me what’s happening.
Jack: The person reaching out to me was…your mother. Diane. She is alive. She is here. And she wants to see you.
