Young & The Restless Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Jack: Thank you for letting me reschedule this business meeting.
Lauren: Well, of course, of course. Any reason you wanted to meet a day earlier?
Jack: Well, I am off to milan tonight. Taking harrison to live with kyle and summer.
Lauren: Oh, my goodness. This is all happening so fast.
Jack: Yeah, I guess that’s how these “happily ever after” things happen. Once the obstacles are out of the way, everything just falls into place.
Lauren: You just must be so elated for your son and his young family to embark on this adventure?
Jack: Yeah, it’s a pretty remarkable story.
Lauren: But it also must be breaking your heart.
Phyllis: Oh, that’s amazing. All right. Okay, I’ll let you go. We’ll talk tomorrow at the same time. All right, baby. All right, bye. I love you. Hey! That was our daughter. That’s our daughter.
Nick: Really? Again? You have to give her some room to breathe.
Phyllis: She wants to talk to me. She wants to. And she told me that ashland has allowed for harrison to live in italy with them.
Nick: Yeah, I heard that, too.
Nick: Honestly, it’s, you know, one of the last things i was expecting to hear.
Phyllis: Yeah, me too. It’s crazy.
Nick: Yeah. Just another thing for kyle and summer that’s falling perfectly into place.
Phyllis: Yeah, because i uncovered what sally and tara were doing to our daughter.
Nick: Yeah, I believe the technical term for that is meddling, which is why I’m here.
Phyllis: Ugh. If it’s a lecture, I need to hydrate.
Nick: No, no, no, no. Hey. I’m completely on board with everything you did, so there’s no lecture.
Phyllis: What is it, then?
Nick: This is an acknowledgement of my respect for your stubbornness.
Phyllis: My leadership skills.
Nick: Your ability to just hang on to something and never let it go.
Phyllis: My determination.
Nick: Yes. And due to your meddling, you were able to bring me in so we could ride off and rescue our daughter together.
Phyllis: That was love.
Nick: It was. It was. So for the next few hours, it’s gonna be a tribute to all the things about you that make me crazy.
Phyllis: Things that you love?
Nick: Yes. I’m calling it phyllis appreciation day.
Sally: Thanks. Oh. Sorry.
Nikki: Hello. Do you remember me?
Sally: Uh… yeah. Christmas eve. We met at the abbott house. You’re nikki newman, of course, the C.O.O. Of newman enterprises and victor’s wife.
Nikki: I am also the grandmother of the woman you ran out of town.
[ Knock on door ]
Victoria: Where’s the man in charge?
Adam: You’re looking at him.
Victoria: Uh, no. That would be our father.
Adam: Mm. Victor’s more an adviser.
Victoria: Oh. Like a babysitter.
Adam: Well, maybe that’s his role with you at newman enterprises, but… we do things a little bit differently around here.
Victoria: I’m sure you do. He always did let you get away with murder.
Adam: And there she goes.
Victoria: You know, I’m surprised I haven’t seen a promotion for your official launch. You’d think that a media corporation would be better at something like that. Even your most important board member, ashland locke, he hasn’t heard a word about it.
Adam: Well, when we do launch, he won’t be able to miss it.
Adam: But why do you care? I mean, surely you can’t see us as competition to the, uh, behemoth that is newman/locke. Now, if you win control of locke’s remaining outlets, you’re goliath.
Victoria: And I imagine that you’re a little underdog with a slingshot.
Adam: Well, we all know who won that battle.
Jack: I cannot tell you how overjoyed we were to hear ashland’s position about custody.
Lauren: It’s very generous of him.
Jack: Yeah, it was a truly selfless act. And now, of course, summer and kyle are getting their place ready for a little boy, and we’re gathering all of harrison’s treasured possessions, both here and in new york, and shipping them to him in milan.
Lauren: I am sure he will adjust beautifully. But I want to know how you’re feeling.
Jack: It’s not easy. I mean, he brought so much life and excitement into the house. Gonna miss seeing all of his toys all around the house and playing catch with him in the park and — well, a lot of things.
Lauren: Aww. Bring a grandfather really agrees with you.
Jack: It has been a wonderful surprise. Sitting at the head of the table for an abbott family breakfast, passing cinnamon rolls to a whole new generation, it’s a joy that can’t be put into words. And, of course, after tonight, my son and my grandson are gonna be an ocean away.
Lauren: I mean, I know it’s not ideal, but you do have the corporate jet.
Jack: Yeah, yeah, that’s true, but…
Lauren: It’s not the same. I understand.
Jack: I think you do understand. Scott and fen are out there in the world, and…
Lauren: I know. I, uh — I really miss my sons. It’s both wonderful and terrible.
Jack: Tell me — how so?
Lauren: Well, I guess, uh, you feel like you’ve done your job as a parent when your children have these successful lives, but…the distance, it’s hard to bear.
Jack: Any advice for the new guy?
Lauren: You know, I’m fortunate. I have michael. We’re together through the hard times, you know, like the birthdays and the holidays and…
[ Sighs ] If I didn’t have him to lean on, I don’t know what I would do.
Phyllis: You know, I love this idea of a celebration of all things, you know, me. But a heads-up would’ve been nice. I have a ton of work. I mean…
Nick: Not on phyllis appreciation day. I already set it up with your general manager. She’s gonna cover everything for you. You don’t have to worry about anything. Everything else has been set up.
Phyllis: You thought of everything.
Nick: All you have to decide is when you would like your tribute to begin.
Phyllis: Um, all right! I want it to begin now. Right now.
Nick: Right now.
Phyllis: Where does it begin?
Nick: Well, I know the thing you love most in this world is winning, so… kind of organized something. We’re going head-to-head, one-on-one…
Nick: …But I ain’t letting you win. You have to earn it.
Phyllis: Oh, pssh! Easy. Bring it on. Bring it. Where’s the video game?
Nick: It’s not a video game. I got something very different set up.
Nick: No, no, no, no. Come on. You’re gonna love it. Let’s go.
Phyllis: Are you sure? Crystal! Take care of everything!
Victoria: I am simply asking an innocent question about dates, because I have an important one coming up.
Adam: What, your wedding? Don’t tell me that I’m actually invited.
Victoria: Well, I wouldn’t want our father to have any conflicts around the big family day.
Adam: Well, congratulations. And I’m sorry that I jumped to other conclusions, but I’m sure you can understand why since you are the last remaining member of the family to see me as a monster.
Victoria: I doubt that I’m the only one who still sees you for who you truly are. And you know, I’m surprised that you would give me and my opinion of you so much thought. That kind of makes me wonder if maybe you’re the one worried about competition.
Adam: That’s good. I have nothing to fear.
Victoria: Despite your bravado, you must realize that, between newman/locke and chanccomm, your little fledgling of a company doesn’t have a prayer for survival. And you’re gonna let dad down again. That’s what you fear the most, isn’t it?
Victor: Victoria, that’s enough. People everywhere living with type 2 diabetes
Victor: I am fed up with the hostility between the two of you, all right? I want you to stop now.
Adam: Victoria’s the one that blew in here full of spite and malice. But you know what? I’m used to it, so I take it in stride.
Victoria: Well, I guess I’d have to give a damn about adam to despise him, and since things are going so well in my life right now, I really don’t have the energy to detest him.
Adam: Wow. It is reassuring to know all that power that dad gave you didn’t go to your head.
Victoria: Nobody gave me anything. I earned everything that I have.
Adam: You literally were groomed since birth to be an executive at newman enterprises. I went out in the world, made a career for myself before I even knew I was the son of victor newman.
Victor: How many times do i have to stop the two of you from arguing?
Adam: Congratulations, victoria. You have every right to enjoy your new power. So let me know where you’re registered, and I’ll be sure to drop you a nice gift, since I’m sure my invitation will be lost in the mail.
Victor: It had better not. This is one chance for our family to come together.
Adam: Well, I’m doing my part. But she came to see you, so why don’t the two of you work this out. I’m gonna go for a run. Have a nice day, victoria.
Victor: What will it take for the two of you to stop arguing?
Sally: I really should get going.
Nikki: Oh, no, no, no. We’re not finished yet. I want to make sure you know what happens when you come after a member of my family.
Sally: I think you misunderstood. Tara was the one who was after summer. I just made the mistake of befriending her.
Nikki: Oh, please don’t try to play the victim. You’re far from convincing.
Sally: All I’m saying is, i think things got exaggerated.
Nikki: I don’t believe they did.
Sally: Phyllis is out to poison everyone’s mind against me. The woman can’t be trusted.
Nikki: Well, you know, normally, I might have agreed with you. But in this case, I am confident that phyllis’s version of the story is accurate, because many people back that up, including my son, nicholas.
Sally: With all due respect, I think summer is the one who came out on top here. She has it all now, including a dream job, which she wasn’t even being considered for if I hadn’t stepped in.
Nikki: Really? If you hadn’t interfered, she would still be living in genoa city with her family.
Sally: Yeah, but, surely, you wouldn’t have wanted her to miss out on this opportunity.
Nikki: You don’t know me at all. Don’t make assumptions about what I want.
Sally: You’re a successful executive and a champion for women, so clearly, you’re a huge role model for summer. Wouldn’t you be happy that she’s following in your footsteps and reaching her full potential?
Nikki: What a smooth talker you are. That gives me even more reason to believe the things I’ve heard about you.
Sally: [ Scoffs ] Fine. Yeah, maybe most of it is true, but I swear, I have nothing against summer. I am rooting for her to succeed.
Nikki: Well, I am very protective about the people i love. So I don’t want to hear any more about you trying to come after anyone in my family. Do you understand?
Nikki: And make no mistake — my husband isn’t the only one who knows how to take matters into his own hands.
Jack: This was supposed to be a business meeting. I wasn’t supposed to be bearing my soul.
Lauren: Well, it was my fault. I asked you how you felt, and i hope I haven’t made things worse.
Jack: No, not at all.
Lauren: Okay. Before we start, I owe you an apology.
Jack: Whatever for?
Lauren: For encouraging you to get involved with sally after everyone else told you that she was trouble.
Jack: You know what? I saw her in action, I shut her out of my life, and I still let her back in.
Lauren: I just — I can’t believe I was duped. I mean, I waved off phyllis’s warnings, thinking my instincts were right. They could not have been more wrong.
Jack: Sally is good. She’s talented, she’s got drive and ambition. She’s a great person to have around the office. No one would blame you for wanting to give her the benefit of the doubt. And it’s what she does outside of the office that became the issue.
Lauren: Right. I mean, can you imagine how much farther she could get on her own without sabotaging people? She just didn’t have the patience to wait for her shot or the ethics to know when not to cross the line.
Jack: Yeah, it’s a real shame. What do you think chances are of her getting a job of that caliber anytime soon?
Adam: Whoa! Oh.
Sally: [ Breathes deeply ]
[ Scoffs ]
Adam: [ Breathes deeply ]
If you have postmenopausal
Phyllis: I dominated at the batting cages. Thank you.
Nick: I especially loved your victory dance.
Phyllis: Right down the middle. I was amazing. I mean, I knew I was gonna smoke you, but I was up there with the big boys in my score.
Nick: Yup. I just want to remind everyone once again that your pitches were going in 30 miles an hour slower.
Phyllis: Yeah, but that’s fair. I have a handicap. You picked the sport.
Nick: You know what? You’re right. And it’s your day. I just want to make sure you have all the advantages necessary.
Phyllis: And then you…
[Smooches] Up there…
Phyllis: …Holding your bat, with your strong muscles glistening in the sun.
Nick: Oh, yeah.
Phyllis: [ Laughs ] I hope you didn’t wear yourself out.
Nick: Actually, I am a little sore. I bet you are, too.
Nick: So, why don’t we take this to the next stage? Which is the massage stage.
Victor: Did you come here with the express purpose of provoking your brother?
Victoria: [ Sighs ] Dad, I promise you my visit had nothing to do with adam. I have some very big news that i want to share with you. Ashland and I have decided on a wedding date — october 15th.
Victor: So soon?
Victoria: Well, it’s just because we don’t know how much time we actually have. And we’re hoping that this new treatment might work some sort of a miracle, but we don’t really have any guarantees.
Victor: Well, I know the situation is weighing heavily on you. I understand that.
Victoria: Well, I’m keeping a positive outlook, and I’m focusing on this wedding. And to that end, ashland and i would love to have our ceremony at the family palazzo.
Victor: In tuscany.
Victoria: Yes. You know, I have loved italy ever since I lived there. And by then, harrison will be settled into his life in milan with summer and kyle. It wasn’t a very easy decision for ashland to make, but he did what was best for his son. And of course he’s gonna visit him as much as possible. I know what you want to say.
[ Sighs ] Why are ashland and i getting married when he’s making end-of-life decisions?
Victor: That’s not what I’m gonna say. A wedding in tuscany at my villa in october? What could be better?
Victoria: [ Chuckles ]
Sally: I am so sorry. Clearly making a great first impression on my new boss. First chloe tells you about my questionable past, and then you find out that I clearly jog with my eyes closed.
Adam: [ Chuckles ] Oh, that’s alright. You weren’t hired for your athletic ability.
Sally: Oh. You say that like you have a sense of what my strengths and weaknesses are.
Adam: [ Chuckles ] Well, I’d like to think so. It’s part of what makes a good ceo.
Sally: So, in other words, you had a chance to do a good old-fashioned background check? Question my exes and enemies?
Adam: Matter of fact, I did ask my friend jack if it was a mistake letting chloe hire you.
Sally: Yeah. I can only guess what he had to say.
Adam: He wasn’t as eager to weigh in as I thought he’d be.
Sally: Oh. Despite all we went through, he still didn’t want to wreck my future.
Adam: But phyllis?
[ Whistles ] Boy, she just couldn’t say enough. It was like a fire hose of insults.
Sally: Yeah, I thought as much when I saw you two talking at society.
Adam: I wasn’t even looking for her opinion of you, but she sure insisted on giving it to me.
Sally: Yeah, well, that’s no surprise ’cause we have a hate-hate relationship.
Adam: That nearly sums up all of phyllis’ entanglements. But most people aren’t willing to put it that bluntly.
Sally: I mean, there’s no reason to pretend at this point. She blew up my life and took pleasure in it.
Adam: Mm. Isn’t that kind of the pot calling the kettle black?
Sally: Okay, yeah, maybe i did a few things that crossed the line. Haven’t we all? But I never screwed anyone over for no reason.
Adam: So, you only screw people over for good reasons?
Sally: I didn’t say that.
Adam: Actually, you haven’t said much of anything. I’m still waiting to hear about this questionable past of yours.
Sally: So, no one gave you specifics?
Adam: You’re in luck. Neither phyllis nor chloe elaborated.
Sally: Alright. Well, you’re gonna find out the truth sooner or later, so you might as well hear it from the source. So, pull up a bench, boss man. And I will tell you all the lurid details of how I came from jcv to you. And if you think they’re too scandalous, then you can override your promise to chloe. Fire me. Come here! I’ve got big news!
“The young and the restless”
Lauren: Okay, I will make sure you get a report of the preliminary sales figures. And I got to tell you something. Even with everything that’s going on, the numbers are quite impressive.
Jack: Well, it’s nice to know that some things are going well.
Lauren: [ Laughs ] Ah. I see you’re wearing your teardrop of love cufflinks.
Lauren: Ever leave home without them?
Jack: Yeah, now that you mention it, I’ve become pretty attached to them.
Lauren: Yeah. I know you don’t believe in their magic, but you still believe they’re a stone of hope, don’t you?
Jack: You know what? I — I have a lot to be hopeful about. My son is gonna be reunited with his son. I will have a hand in making that happen, which will bring them joy, which in turn will bring me happiness.
Lauren: Now, I know you don’t believe in their magic, but I’m gonna believe in the magic for you because I just know one day soon you are going to have a happiness that is all your own.
[ Laughs ]
[ Lock whirs, disengages ]
Phyllis: Hey. So, uh, they only brought one table up for the couples massage, so we’re gonna have to make do.
Nick: [ Swedish accent ] Ja.
Phyllis: Hello, sir? You haven’t turned around since you got in here.
Phyllis: Um, hi. Are you new here?
Nick: I’m sven. At your service.
Phyllis: Nice to meet you, sven.
Nick: I know what you want.
Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, you do know what I want in music. Um, is there something you’d like me to do, sven?
Nick: I’m very well schooled in the art of massage.
Phyllis: Oh. Okay. Well, you just tell me what you want me to do.
Nick: Just put yourself in my capable hands. I promise to have every muscle in your body scream out with pleasure.
Sally: And now you know the whole truth about sally spectra.
Adam: [ Clicks tongue ] Well, I appreciate you leveling with me.
Sally: Why don’t you look horrified and disgusted? Isn’t summer your niece?
Adam: Oh, I see that you’ve studied the newman family tree.
Sally: Well, yeah, it only made sense now that I’m working for you.
Adam: Summer and I — we aren’t close.
Sally: Well, that’s good.
Adam: It’s a good thing that summer and I have a less-than-great relationship?
Sally: [ Chuckles ] That is not what I meant. It’s just that all of the other newmans are acting like summer moving to italy for a job opportunity of a lifetime is a tragedy. Nikki just let me have it.
Adam: Well, if it makes you feel any better, she’s not a big fan of mine, either.
Sally: So I’m in good company?
Adam: The way I see it is, you took advantage of the situation. You and tara — you got what you wanted for a while, but in the end, it was the two of you that suffered the consequences.
Sally: Damn straight we did. And phyllis broke a lot of rules coming after us, and she got away with it.
Adam: And it was like what chloe said to me — who wants to be judged by their worst mistakes?
Adam: I do know what it’s like to have a past of my own that I’m trying to play down. So I will judge you on your work and nothing else.
Sally: Well, thank you. Maybe genoa city isn’t filled with as many hypocrites as i thought.
Adam: Well, I wouldn’t go that far.
Sally: Okay. Well, how far are you running today?
Adam: Just a lap around the lake.
Sally: Well, I could use a partner to make sure that i don’t collide with anyone else.
Adam: I don’t know. It’s a pretty long, rough path.
Sally: Well, I’ll take it as a challenge. Race you.
Adam: [ Sighs ]
Victoria: Thank you again for letting me have this wedding at the palazzo.
Victor: I know how much it means to you.
Victoria: It does. Okay, so now I’m off to plan the big event with mom.
Victor: There’s one more thing, my darling.
Victoria: If this is about adam —
Victor: No, it’s not. I just didn’t like the way you and I left things after I had talked to ashland at your house.
Victoria: Does this mean that you realized that asking ashland if he was faking a potentially fatal illness was maybe taking it just a little bit too far?
Victor: I just want you to know that I don’t want to do anything to undermine you.
Victoria: No? [ Chuckles ]
Victor: No. On the contrary. I want you to be happy. But, you know, being the father of a girl who has inherited a lot of my qualities, things get a little complicated.
Victoria: Oh, I’m sure.
Victor: I’m still trying to figure out aspects of our dynamic, you know? Even at this late date. Does that make sense?
Victoria: Yes, it does. And I am still trying to figure out aspects about being your daughter. But I’ll always love you and respect you, even if you infuriate me and make me feel like our relationship is completely impossible.
Victor: Mm. I want you now to go back to the ranch, okay? And I want you to plan the wedding of your dreams.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ]
Victor: But one more thing. When you plan that wedding, make sure that you plan for a long aisle because I want to take you down that aisle. And I want to cherish every step of it. Like many people with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis
Nick: [ Swedish accent ] Ja?
Phyllis: Um…this was amazing.
[ Cork pops ] So glad you enjoyed yourself.
Phyllis: Could I have my boyfriend back?
[ Normal voice ] You mean…
Nick: …This guy?
Phyllis: Yeah, that guy.
Nick: Yeah? You miss me?
Phyllis: [ Laughing ] I did.
[ Bottle clinks, liquid pours ] This is the most amazing — the most amazing thing.
[ Laughs ]
Nick: I’m glad you enjoyed it.
Phyllis: [ Laughs ] What drove you to do this?
[ Bottle thuds ]
Nick: Uh…I love you. Do I need a better reason than that?
[ Laughs ] I mean, as far as I’m concerned, every day should be phyllis appreciation day, but —
Nick: Me too.
[ Glasses clink ]
Phyllis: Why’d you do all of this and the sven and…
Nick: I don’t know. I’ve just been thinking a lot about summer and kyle, you know, and their lives are completely different now. Our daughter not only has to learn a new language. She needs to learn how to be a mom.
Phyllis: Yeah. Well, she’ll be good at it. She’ll be a natural, I think.
Nick: Well, luckily, she has an incredible role model. I mean, think about it. She took on this huge challenge just so she could be with kyle, and kyle picked up and moved his entire life over to milan just to be with our daughter. Those are two tremendous acts of love.
Phyllis: Yeah, they sacrificed a lot to get the kind of life they wanted.
Nick: Well, listen to me. If it ever comes up, there isn’t anything that I won’t give up for you, not anything. I love you that much.
Nick: I mean it. All I want to do is make you happy.
Phyllis: [ Chuckles ]
Nick: Nick’s kissing you, not sven.
Nikki: So, you want the wedding to be that soon?
Nikki: In italy?
Victoria: Look, I realize that that doesn’t give us a lot of time to plan, but we’ll find a way.
Nikki: Well, yes, of course we will. Now, I really want to hear how things went with your father. I know there’s been some tension between the two of you lately. I hope you understand that he’s coming from a place of love.
Victoria: I do! I know that he means well. We actually had a very nice talk.
Nikki: Oh, I’m so happy to hear that.
Victoria: Yes, look, mom, i know that dad and I are always gonna blow hot and cold, but i just hope that this détente lasts a while because I’m dealing with enough right now.
Nikki: Is it alright if I ask how ashland’s chemo is going?
Victoria: I think it’s too early to tell. The first session really took a toll on him, but hopefully that means that it’s working.
Nikki: Well, that would be fantastic.
Victoria: Well, it’s out of my control. So, let’s focus on planning the most incredible wedding.
[ Door opens ]
Sally: Uh, two iced coffees, please. So, no regrets about letting chloe hire me?
Adam: [ Chuckles ] I trust her instincts. But just don’t mention that to her.
Sally: Your secret’s safe. Though she was right to offer me a job ’cause I’m gonna do great things for your fashion platform. I have a spent a lot of time researching sites, and I’m well versed on the rising and falling stars of the industry.
Adam: So, what do you plan to do to, uh, set us apart from our competitors?
Sally: Well, I’m hoping to concentrate on ferreting out untapped sources for news and trends since I’m sure that newman media wants to be the first to know and the first to tell the world.
Adam: That is exactly what I’m looking for — to be on the cutting edge of all the outlets we have. So I’m glad that you’re ready to dive right in.
Sally: Well, I have a lot to offer, so I promise I will not let you down.
Adam: Mm. You know, now that I know everything that’s happened, I do realize that it would have been easier for you to, uh, cut your losses and leave genoa city. But you didn’t do that.
Sally: I get the feeling that you have something to prove, too.
Adam: [ Chuckles ] Don’t we all?
[ Sighs ] Well, I, um — I ought to get back to the office, so… thanks.
Adam: Talk to you soon.
Sally: [ Sighs ] I brought in ensure max protein,
Sally: I can explain. We just ran into each other while we were jogging. I am not trying to score points with the man who writes our checks. We — what you witnessed was just two people who ran into each other completely by accident. We were just talking about work.
Chloe: Take a breath. You can score all the points you want. It just makes me look like a genius for bringing you on board.
Sally: Then why were you watching us with that concerned look on your face?
Chloe: Because even though adam has been on his very best behavior lately, adam will always be adam. He is a sucking vortex of chaos and destruction. And, yes, he is working very hard at the company that his daddy just bought him trying to appear fully human.
Sally: Honestly, he’s doing a pretty good job of it because he seemed…friendly.
Chloe: Do not fall for his act. Look, there are plenty of articles that you can read about him, about what he is truly like. Start with “the making of a monster.” You can find it on chanccomm’s website. Or just ask people around town.
Chloe: Everyone. They’ll back up what I’m saying.
Sally: Okay. Yeah. Thank you for the advice. I will be more careful in the future.
Phyllis: Do you know how much I love you? I mean, who would do this, seriously, put on this wig and be sven and give me a massage, even though you know you didn’t have to do that?
Nick: Even after I gave you a hard time about being too overprotective of jack?
Phyllis: Well, um… I think we worry about our exes. I think that’s something we both do.
Phyllis: And it’s okay as long as we worry about each other.
Phyllis: Anyway… I, uh, would like to proclaim that this is the end of, uh, phyllis appreciation day. And now we start the nick festival.
Nick: Oh. I like the sound of that.
Phyllis: It starts right now. And it’s gonna last a long, long time.
[ Keys jangling ]
Jack: [ Sighs ] Harrison! Grandpa’s home!
Nikki: White garden roses.
Victoria: [ Gasps ] Yes! And peonies.
Nikki: Oh! Those would look stunning together.
Victoria: Mm. I want the floral arrangement to be elegant, sophisticated, and very unique.
Nikki: And so they shall. Any thoughts about music?
Victoria: [ Gasps ] Oh.
Nikki: Don’t worry. Don’t worry. I’m gonna make a list. Uh, you know, maybe we should decide on a theme.
Victoria: Oh, that’s a great idea. I think drawing from the history of the palazzo will set the most romantic tone for the day — all of the luminaries who have stayed there over the years, along with the architecture and the art. You know what? We can display some of the most beautiful pieces at the reception, which should be huge and lavish.
Nikki: So, you want this to be a large affair?
Victoria: Yes. I want it to be gigantic, with musicians and gorgeous lighting, a five-course meal. I want this to be a night that i will remember for the rest of my life, along with anyone else who happens to be lucky enough to be invited.
[ Both laugh ]
Nikki: I just assumed that you and ashland would want something more intimate, you know, just your close friends and family.
Victoria: Well, yes, I mean, of course we’re going to invite all of the people that we love, along with the people that ashland cares about. But, mom, I want it to be a big group. It should be glamorous and luxurious.
Nikki: That sounds —
Victoria: I know. Impossible. But we’ll find a way. I want this to be the wedding of the decade. No. The century.
Nikki: Sounds like you’ve given this a lot of thought.
Victoria: Oh, I have, ever since ashland proposed. You know, mom, I am so done with doing things low key. I just — I want to go all out. I want the world to know in the most extravagant way that victoria newman has finally met her match.
