Young & The Restless Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Victoria: Sally, look, I hope you won’t take this personally, but I’m really not in the mood for any company.
Sally: I totally get it. And for the record, it takes a lot more than that to offend me. Everybody needs to have time to kick back and relax, especially when they’ve been dealing with everything that you’ve had to. One body blow after another. So, yes, I will give you some privacy, no problem. I — I just hope you don’t mind me saying one thing. I so admire your strength and resilience. You are the most tenacious woman that I know. It doesn’t matter what life throws at you, you keep your head up and you keep pushing forward. It’s really inspiring.
Victoria: Thank you. Thank you so much for the compliment. I wasn’t expecting that.
Sally: Why on earth not?
Victoria: When I took the reins back at newman, you and adam lost your temporary titles. I can imagine you were very disappointed about that.
Sally: I’m actually perfectly satisfied being coo of newman media. Adam and I are really excited about our plans going forward.
Victoria: He said something along the same lines earlier.
Sally: See? We’re all on the same team. In a very good place. The only loser here is ashland, and he deserves it.
Michael: Thank you for meeting me here.
Victor: You’re welcome. Now, you didn’t make clear what you want to talk about.
Michael: I assume you’re aware that diane jenkins is back. I ran into her myself recently.
Victor: Yep. Hard as it is, she’s back in town, you’re right. I hope she soon gets the hell out of town.
Michael: What if she doesn’t?
Victor: Well, if she thinks that everyone here’s gonna let bygones be bygones, she’s sorely mistaken, and I’m gonna make sure that she realizes that, okay? Now, there’s something else i need to talk to you about.
Michael: Let me stop you right there, please.
Sharon: No, you’ve got the right time. There’s no confusion. We are expecting your delivery person between 8:00 and 9:00 A.M. Tomorrow. Perfect. Well, thanks for checking in. Hey.
Faith: Hey, mom. I picked up the dry cleaning.
Sharon: Oh, that was so nice of you. How — how’s your to-do list coming?
Faith: Almost done. I got the new items for mariah and tessa to carry, so old, blue, and new are done.
Sharon: Great, and I can just loan them something for borrowed.
Faith: Yeah, I figured. So we can cross that off.
Faith: I’ll go hang this in your closet.
Sharon: Oh, no, you don’t have to. I was actually heading upstairs to get something anyway.
Faith: Just let me do it. What do you need? I’ll bring it down.
Sharon: Is there some reason you don’t want me to? Oh, I see. One of rey’s shirts — the one that I bought him in miami, the cuban one.
Faith: I’m sorry. I know you wanted to focus on mariah and the wedding today. Not think about…
Sharon: My loss.
Tessa: The bakery just called.
Mariah: What’s wrong?
Tessa: Nothing! They just wanted to confirm when and where to bring the cake tomorrow.
Mariah: Okay. Good.
Tessa: Okay, twitchy.
Mariah: Well, I almost lost out on having kyle officiate, and now I’m just waiting for something to go wrong.
Tessa: Wow, I was the worrywart earlier, and now we switched places.
Mariah: Well, I’m very jealous. What’s your secret?
Tessa: I don’t know, I just decided to take a deep breath and admit that everything was gonna be fine.
Mariah: Oh, god, even hearing you say that is making me superstitious and paranoid.
Tessa: Listen, you, the fact that the wedding is coming together has nothing to do with luck and is everything to do with the fact that your family is coming through for us in a major way.
Mariah: Yeah, that’s mostly for my mom. Yeah, they know she needs something happy and joyous in her life right now.
Tessa: Well, I’m glad that our love can give her that.
[ Knock on door ]
Mariah: Please don’t be something wrong.
Tessa: Okay, would you just relax? It’s probably someone with a wedding gift.
[ Gasps ] Crystal!
Crystal: Hey, sis. With downy infusions, let the scent set the mood.
provided by… when asthma symptoms strike, airways narrow.
Tessa: Give me that bag. Why didn’t you tell me when you were getting in? I would’ve met you at the airport with balloons and your maid-of-honor tiara.
Crystal: I knew you’d be frantic with all the last-minute stuff, and I didn’t want to get in the way. Although, I do know how to rock a tiara.
Mariah: Well, you look fantastic with or without sparkly accessories. Come here! Oh, let me get a look at you. Wow, you look so strong and so confident, like a whole new person.
Crystal: Thanks. Feels like I’ve grown up a lot in the time that I’ve been away. Which is good, I supposed, although I’ve missed you like crazy.
Tessa: That makes two of us!
Crystal: Oh! I’m so glad I get to be here in person for your big day.
Tessa: Yeah. Well, that was all rey. No one in the family had any idea that he was working to get the charges against you dropped.
Crystal: How’s sharon doing? I know they weren’t married long, like a year, year and a half. His death must be so hard on her.
Sharon: When I said I wanted to focus on the wedding, i didn’t mean that no one should talk about rey at all. I was just trying to give you all permission to enjoy the happy day without worrying about how I feel.
Sharon: Obviously, he’s on my mind already anyway. I think about him every minute of the day.
Faith: Me too. It’s just when the lady at the dry cleaner said that he hadn’t picked up his shirt so it would be in your things, I realized that she didn’t know that he had died. She asked me to say hi to him, and I didn’t even know what to say.
Sharon: I’m so sorry.
Faith: I can’t believe he’s gone. It doesn’t seem real. Every time that the door opens, I look up and I expect it’s gonna be rey.
Sharon: So do I.
Faith: He was there for us through the scariest times — your cancer, my transplant, mariah’s kidnapping.
[ Sighs ] He always remained so calm and strong and refused to let us give up hope. Now everything turned out the way he promised, and he doesn’t even get to be here for it. It’s so messed up.
Sharon: It really is.
Victoria: I think that ashland came out of this just fine. Thanks to adam, he’s several hundred million dollars richer than he was.
Sally: Well, I doubt the money made him any happier, since he’s already given half of it away.
Victoria: How did you know about that?
Sally: I saw him talking about it with nick. And when adam and I spoke with him afterwards, he was anything but fine. I mean, granted, it was a brief conversation because ashland doesn’t trust adam, so of course he wasn’t gonna talk about how broken up he was over losing you, but it was very obvious to anyone with eyes.
Victoria: I think you are either totally misreading the situation or you’re greatly exaggerating. Either that, or he’s playing you and adam, the same way that billy did when he pretended to be falling apart, when he knew that you were following him around in your disguises, making your little spy videos.
Sally: Well, ashland couldn’t fool me. Not that I’m a better judge of character than you. That was not my point.
Victoria: Then what is?
Sally: Just it’s true what they say — takes one to know one. And I have been where ashland is now.
Victoria: What does that mean?
Sally: May I?
Victoria: Fine. Sit.
Michael: Lauren has stepped up her efforts to get me to bow out of this job.
Victor: What do you mean, on account of peru?
Michael: Well, it sure didn’t help.
Victor: What the hell does this have to do with your wife? You’re my lawyer. Do I need to hire someone else?
Michael: No, no. You don’t have to take it that far.
Victor: Well, then let’s start talking business, okay? Ashland locke is still in town. He’s circling the water like a shark.
Michael: Oh. I assume you want me to find a way to…neutralize him.
Victor: You bet, okay? More than that, I want to get rid of that S.O.B. Permanently.
Faith: I’m sorry. I was trying to stay positive today, for your sake.
Sharon: Don’t apologize. And don’t try to hide your feelings from me. You know, it helps me to know that other people see how special rey was and that they miss him, too.
Faith: I really do.
Sharon: Well, we’re gonna keep him in our hearts. And there’s another way that rey’s memory will never be forgotten. Your father told me that someone made a donation to new hope in rey’s honor, and it’s a large sum.
Faith: That’s great.
Sharon: Your father’s gonna use that to help a lot of people — build affordable housing and recreation centers, all kinds of resources for high-risk kids, and these were issues that rey really cared about.
Faith: That is so awesome.
Sharon: And this is a beautiful way of making sure that rey’s kindness and compassion are never forgotten.
Faith: Who made the donation?
Sharon: Um, well…your father said that the donor prefers to remain anonymous, and that way the focus stays where it belongs — on rey.
Michael: What exactly does your vision for permanently removing ashland entail?
Victor: I can assure you that you won’t be risking your life going after locke.
Michael: Not this time.
Victor: This man is making victoria’s life a hell, and i won’t stand for it.
Michael: Alright, alright, has ashland engaged in any behavior that we can report to a judge? Is he harassing victoria? Is he threatening victoria?
Victor: None of it. He’s just hovering around her, you know, trying to impress her with his undying love.
Michael: Well, do you think he’s sincere or is he just toying with her?
Victor: The point is that he is becoming frustrating.
Michael: How can you tell?
Victor: Because she’s very cold to him. And once he realized that his tactics weren’t working, he gave half of the money I gave him to new hope.
Michael: $250 million?
Victor: 250 million bucks.
Victor: And here’s the kicker. He did it in rey rosales’ name. He wants it to fund charitable projects in rey’s honor. He’s trying very hard to convince victoria that his love for her has transformed him.
Michael: [ Scoffs ] Well, that’s one hell of a gesture.
Michael: Is it working?
Victor: Of course not.
Sally: Like your ex, i pretended to be deathly ill to get someone’s sympathy. To make them fall hopelessly in love with me. At least that was the plan, anyway.
Victoria: I didn’t think there was anyone else on this planet that would stoop so low.
Sally: If you want to let me have it, go ahead. If there’s some insults that you haven’t hurled at ashland yet, you can say them to me.
Victoria: I can see now why adam likes you so much. You truly are two of a kind.
Sally: [ Chuckles ] I know you didn’t mean it this way, but I’m going to choose to take that as a compliment.
Victoria: So did you pull it off? Is there some poor man out there that you scammed into marrying you?
Sally: Um…it didn’t get that far. It ended in disaster, because how could it not? Wyatt was so hurt and disgusted, he chose to cut me out of his life completely, just like you did with ashland — booting him out of the company, erasing his name from the letterhead, and annulling your marriage. Just like it never happened. So that is how I know that the guy’s pain and shame are real. I disagree with the people who think that he’s a sociopath. I believe that he feels true remorse.
Victoria: [ Scoffs ] Right.
Sally: I mean, of course, i never had the option of shelling out $250 million to buy redemption, but if I did, it would’ve been totally worth it because that is how horrible it feels to know that you have hit rock bottom and that you have hurt the one person that you love more than anything in this world. And for what? Money, power? I mean, you can’t hold either of those things in your arms. So, yeah, I’m sure the last thing you want to hear right now is that I feel sorry for ashland, but to be honest… I kind of do. If you’ve been living with heart disease,
Victoria: Your sympathy is misplaced. And you’re projecting.
Sally: Why do you say that?
Victoria: Just because you’ve regretted your actions, it doesn’t mean that ashland does. You were trying to hold on to someone that you loved, while ashland was using me so thathe could get what he really wanted, which was full control of newman/locke.
Sally: But now he’s lost all hope of ever gaining that, and he’s still hanging around. So it seems to me like he might have realized that there’s more important things in life.
Victoria: Ashland hates to lose, and he very much enjoys manipulating people.
[ Sighs ] So…when it comes right down to it, I really don’t care what his intentions are.
Sally: You have every right to feel that way. Too much has happened. So it really doesn’t matter how he feels or what he’s learned. I was at your wedding, so I saw him make this amazing declaration of love, so I guess it’s just hard for me to believe that at least some of that wasn’t genuine. But who cares? It’s too late. So I guess, I don’t know, best-case scenario for ashland is just to move on, like I did, and just try and do better with the next woman in his life.
Sally: I mean, that’s how i know what adam and I have is healthy and strong because i learned from my mistakes. Is it fair that you invested so much time and love into ashland, teaching him how to be a better man, and now someone else gets to benefit from that? Hell no. And it’s totally unfair. And he’s probably gonna be haunted by how badly he treated you for the rest of his life. But he’s got no one to blame but himself. Anyway, I’ve definitely taken up too much of your time, so I…am going to head back to the office. But…I really hope things get better for you.
Victor: The point is victoria has finally wised up to what that man is all about. She knows she can’t trust a word coming out of that S.O.B.’S mouth.
Michael: Yeah, I can only imagine how painful that realization must have been. Do you think there’s any temptation on victoria’s part to believe him, that somehow the power of her love redeems him?
Victor: No. He fooled her once, he’s not gonna fool her again. But…that is what has got me worried.
Michael: Because ashland locke isn’t used to hearing the word no? Because he’s not the type to slink off quietly in defeat?
Victor: You said it.
Michael: [ Sighs ] Well…I know you’re worried that victoria’s continued rejection will just make matters worse.
Victor: We’ve got to come up with a plan…in case I need to rescue victoria. I want that bastard out of town permanently.
Nikki: What are you doing here? Lying in wait, hoping that victoria will come by again?
Ashland: I gather she told you we spoke earlier about my donation to new hope. She didn’t object, which I found gratifying.
Nikki: I’m sure what you find even more gratifying is how much it still upsets her to see you. Does that feed your voracious ego?
Ashland: Hurting victoria is the last thing I want. Every move I am making right now is about easing her pain.
Nikki: We learned a long time ago to pay attention to what you do, not what you say, since all you do is lie from morning till night.
Ashland: Nikki —
Nikki: You continue to claim that you love my daughter. If that’s true, prove it by leaving her alone.
Tessa: Well, crystal’s all settled in. She’s just in the shower.
Mariah: Excellent. I mean, how perfect did this work out? I can go to my mom’s, like we planned, and then crystal will be here so you’re not gonna be lonely.
Tessa: Oh, we have so much catching up to do. And I’m sure that sharon and faith will appreciate having this alone time with you for the last time before you’re a married woman.
Mariah: Can you believe it? I mean, the next time we see each other, we’re gonna be walking down the aisle.
[ Laughs ]
Trelegy for copd.
“The young and the restless”
Sharon: So what do you think? There’s one for each guest, and all of the goodies that we talked about are in the bags.
Faith: Oh, my gosh, they came out fantastic.
Sharon: I don’t know. Do you really think so?
Faith: No, I mean it. I’m seriously impressed.
Faith: Yeah, now I know where noah’s artistic talent comes from.
Sharon: Oh, that’s nice of you to say, but, no, they’re not perfect.
Faith: They’re hand-made. They’re not supposed to look like cookie-cutter, store-bought things.
Sharon: You know what? I agree. I actually don’t mind the little imperfections. It shows that this effort came from our hearts.
Faith: It kind of works with their relationship. Mariah and tessa don’t try to hide their imperfections either. To me, it’s even more romantic. They accept each other for who they are, no matter what, in spite of their flaws.
Sharon: Aww, you’re gonna make me cry.
Mariah: The bride is here! Well, one of them anyway.
Faith: I’m so happy that we’re getting a sleepover.
Mariah: Oh, me too.
Sharon: So what’s, like, the real reason behind this anyway?
Mariah: What do you mean?
Sharon: Well, are you superstitious? Are you afraid if you see your bride before the ceremony, it’ll be bad luck?
Mariah: Maybe a little, but, no, it’s — it’s mainly that we like some old traditions, you know? And it’s a great excuse — tessa gets to spend some time with crystal.
Sharon: Oh, what time does she get in?
Mariah: She just got in a little bit ago.
Sharon: I’m so happy that she could be here to join the celebration.
Mariah: I know. I mean, what rey did to make all of this happen, it’s — it’s an incredible gift.
Sharon: He’s still here with us, making his presence known.
Crystal: Sharon has the best taste in nail polish. I love this color for you.
Tessa: Ooh, me too. Should we paint our toes later?
[ Gasps ] Wow. That portrait of you and mariah.
Tessa: Yeah, it’s cool, right?
Tessa: Noah painted it.
Crystal: It’s stunning. He couldn’ have created something so gorgeous for you unless he’s gotten over how it all started.
Tessa: Well, it was a bit awkward when he first came back, but we’ve moved on from that.
Crystal: Glad to hear it. And what about sharon? Are things copacetic between you two? I know there have been times that she’s had her issues with you.
Tessa: Yeah, but for pretty good reason.
[ Both laugh ] But we’ve moved past that now. We’re really close.
Crystal: That’s so awesome.
Tessa: Well, we had to lean on each other when mariah went missing. And rey was so supportive.
Crystal: I still have to pinch myself thinking about my life now. That I’m finally out from under those charges. I’m free, thanks to rey rosales, this person that I never even met.
Tessa: It’s so phenomenal.
Crystal: Things were okay in canada — better than okay. But I’d gotten used to thinking that I was never gonna be able to have the kind of life that i wanted. That I’d always have to hide and look over my shoulder and worry if I was safe. But now I can go where I want and I can do whatever I want. I wish I had the chance to thank rey. He changed everything for me.
Tessa: You would’ve loved him.
Crystal: The whole family sounds amazing. And now you get to be a part of it.
Tessa: [ Laughs ]
Ashland: [ Sighs ] Look, I don’t want to upset you, but I can’t leave things the way we just did. I would hate to think that you’re telling victoria that i never cared for her because nothing could be further from the truth.
Nikki: I think that song’s getting a little old.
Ashland: I should never have deceived her. It was cruel, it was callous, and you’ll get no argument from me on that. But I eventually, belatedly, realized what a treasure my wife is. I’m just trying to help her to understand that and maybe one day win her forgiveness.
Nikki: Well, that would be even more cruel than what you have done so far, because you’re toxic. You are an arrogant, emotionally stunted narcissist, incapable of putting other people’s needs ahead of your own.
[ Scoffs ] Everything is a game to you. Just another move on the chessboard. Well, my daughter deserves better than that.
Victoria: What’s going on here? With depression, you just feel…blah.
Nikki: I was just sharing with ashland what I think about him and how selfish he is for continuing to inflict his presence on you.
Ashland: I’m sorry. I should’ve recognized that a mother as protective as you are would not want to hear an apology from me, no matter how heartfelt.
Nikki: Oh, please.
Victoria: Mom, it’s not worth your time to get into it with him. Doesn’t matter where he goes or what he does, it’s his business. I honestly don’t care.
Nikki: I don’t share my daughter’s indifference. Victor and I didn’t go after you before because it was more important to get her out of a marriage based on lies. But we’ve done that now. And if you aren’t smart enough to stay away from her, we will come up with our own way of solving this little problem. Do you understand me?
Tessa: Here you go.
Crystal: Thank you.
Tessa: It’s pretty wild that I’m gonna be joining this big, boisterous, loving family, especially after the way you and I grew up. It was so chaotic and unpredictable.
Tessa: I’ve been thinking about it a lot because mariah and I decided to have kids.
Crystal: You’re gonna be a mom?
Tessa: Is that just super crazy?
Crystal: It’s crazy awesome! You have the biggest heart of anyone I know, and you practically raised me.
Tessa: It was mariah’s idea. It took me a while, but then i realized that adoption was the best thing for us.
Crystal: That’s perfect. You can give a kid in a bad situation a loving home, save them from growing up the way that we did.
Tessa: Well…that’s why i was so hesitant at first. Mariah and I both had crappy childhoods, and hers was worse in some ways, if you can imagine that, because it was an even more whacked-out environment.
Crystal: I can’t imagine what that would even be.
Tessa: A literal cult.
Crystal: Oh, my god. That — that must have been horrible.
Tessa: We decided that we needed to know that we had what it takes to be good spouses and parents so that we don’t perpetuate the same cycle and saddle our kids with the same unresolved baggage.
Crystal: So I take it that you got over your fears, since you’re taking the plunge tomorrow?
Tessa: Let’s put it this way — this is as fearless as we’re gonna get.
Crystal: [ Chuckles ] So what made the difference?
Tessa: It wasn’t just one thing. We just decided that we weren’t gonna let this thing fail. And we’ve come close many, many times to losing everything, but we always found a way to come back to each other. To get better and make things right.
Crystal: You’re basically talking about trust. Or what I imagine that would feel like, if and when I ever experience it.
Tessa: Well, if it happened for me, of all people, then it can definitely happen for you.
Crystal: Okay, enough. We’re getting way too deep.
[ Chuckles ]
Tessa: Yeah, you’re probably right.
Crystal: Tonight is about celebrating and having fun and getting ready for your big day tomorrow. So what’s next on our beauty agenda?
Tessa: Mm. Hmm.
Crystal: [ Gasps ] Hair. What do you think — do we do a trial run?
Tessa: [ Gasps ] Yeah, i would love that.
Crystal: So are the brides thinking of having updos or are we thinking maybe something a little more boho chic?
Tessa: Probably boho chic, ’cause I feel like that’s more manageable for me.
[ Both laugh ]
Mariah: Oh, here she comes.
Faith: So what are you looking forward to most tomorrow? Like, for real, no sarcasm.
Mariah: Well, that — that limits my options.
Faith: Come on, try. I know you can do it.
Mariah: Okay, let me think. Hmm. Is it cheesy that it’s actually getting to marry the love of my life?
Faith: Yes, but I’ll allow it. I’m most excited for the dancing. It’s the best part of weddings. I just can’t wait to get out on that dance floor.
Sharon: Well, that’s good, because we’ll know where to find you when it comes time to do the bouquet toss.&
Faith: Oh, yeah, about that, I hope you won’t be offended, mariah, but I’m not gonna go too nuts trying to catch it. Imagine how moses would react. It would totally freak him out.
Mariah: Eh, she has a point.
Faith: Mom, what are you most looking forward to?
Sharon: All of it. I’ve missed out on so many important moments and events in mariah’s life. I just plan on soaking this one up.
Nikki: Poor thing, you must be exhausted.
Victoria: I’m just tired of this day.
Nikki: Well, I have the perfect cure for that.
Victoria: [ Sighs ] You do?
Nikki: Yeah. Why don’t we take a week and go to some fabulous spa in europe, just the two of us? I mean, we can celebrate our new working partnership and hammer out some long-term goals. It would be so good for both of us.
Victoria: Mom, I know what you’re trying to do, and I am grateful, but the timing is wrong.
Nikki: Well, I disagree. I think this is a perfect time for a mother-daughter trip.
Victoria: Far away from ashland?
Nikki: Oh, ashland who?
Victoria: Look, we just have too much on our plate right now. We have to officially change the name of the company back to newman enterprises. Do we keep it quiet or do we do a big publicity push? And then we have to transition you into your new role and find out which of the executives can be trusted to be loyal now that ashland is gone.
Nikki: Darling, I hear you, but you haven’t had a real break from any of this since we found out what ashland was up to. You haven’t given yourself the time to really accept it.
Victoria: Mother, I don’t want you to worry about that. I’m — I’m not on the verge of a nervous breakdown. I’m not — not even close. Look, I appreciate your concern, really, I do, but I’m gonna get through this. I promise.
Ashland: I’ll have one more, please. Thank you.
Sally: The two of you make quite the pair.
Ashland: I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Sally: Victoria was here a little bit ago, sitting on that same exact stool in almost the same exact mood. Only she hid it a little better.
Ashland: And you find this entertaining?
Sally: No, I find it all very sad. Two people who obviously miss each other — one too proud to admit it and the other one too proud to keep up the fight.
Ashland: Why do you care? What does any of this have to do with you?
Sally: Not a thing. I’m just a sucker for romance. I hope you have a very nice evening.
Sharon: Hey, you too excited to sleep?
Mariah: Yeah, I think i probably need to make some of that tea you’re always recommending me.
Mariah: Yeah, I don’t want to nod off during the ceremony, so I should probably get some sleep. I mean, that would be very bad.
[ Chuckles ]
Sharon: Somehow, I don’t see that happening.
Mariah: You know, for so long, I was watching people pairing up, starting families and building their futures together…and it was all that i wanted, but I thought that it was gonna pass me by. I’m so sorry. That must sound so insensitive.
Mariah: Because you just lost the partner that you thought you were gonna spend forever with.
Sharon: Hey, stop, okay? There is nothing about your happiness that hurts me, i promise. Someday when you have kids of your own, you’re gonna realize that you actually live for this.
Mariah: [ Chuckles ]
Sharon: The love that you found with tessa, it’s amazing. It’s the best. It’S…
[ Sighs ] You know, this is everything that I want for you. This is everything I want for my girl, so don’t you dare feel guilty even for a second, okay?
Next week on
“the young and the restless”…
Summer: Oh, you must be allie.
Allie: I am.
Summer: I’m summer, kyle’s wife.
Amanda: Man, I am really digging this ’70s vibe.
Devon: Yeah, noah really knew what he was doing.
Elena: Yeah, someone understood the assignment. Look at this place.
Faith: Everyone, please take a seat so we can celebrate our super-funky couple and lift them up with the power of our love.
