Young & The Restless Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Nick: Looks like I missed all the excitement. What happened?
Jack: Phyllis, you want to fill nick in?
Phyllis: The launch, uh, presentation is going to start soon. I’ll have to get ready for it. Excuse me.
Nick: Alright, spill it. What happened?
Adam: [ Breathing heavily ] Where did that come from?
Sally: I mean, do we really need to question it? Why don’t we just follow our impulse and see where it leads?
Adam: [ Sighs ]
Abby: Tessa, hey, um, do you have a minute to talk?
Tessa: Yeah. Is something wrong?
Abby: It’s mariah. What she went through is awful. Who knows what this whole ordeal may have done to her?
Mariah: Please…somebody… help. Let us out. Let — let — let us out! My baby needs to live!
Nate: Hey, you made it back.
Elena: Yeah, fortunately, my patient stabilized, and I’m so relieved for her — and for me. Not to be shallow, but this dress deserved to be worn more than a few minutes.
Nate: Well, I will help you make up for lost party time. I promise.
Lily: So, are you really gonna let nick stop you from getting this scoop before the speeches?
Billy: Right now, I think we need a new strategy, starting with you and me launching ourselves out of this dud of a party.
Lily: [ Chuckles ]
Adam: This would be a massively bad idea.
Sally: Massively bad or enticingly good?
Adam: [ Sighs, chuckles ] Um…both. And, unfortunately, the bad outweighs the good.
Sally: Why, because, technically you’re my boss?
Adam: Um, that’s another excellent reason that I think we need to, um, slam on the brakes.
Sally: Another reason? Okay, so now you have, like, a whole list of reasons not to kiss me?
Adam: No, it’s just one that, uh, overshadows everything else.
Sally: And what could that possibly be?
Adam: I am toxic.
Phyllis: Yeah the ballroom is ready now, so, uh, tell the waitstaff to be ready with the champagne for the toast. Um… no, uh, well, then make sure — make sure we have enough. No delays, please.
[ Sighs ]
Phyllis: Oh. Hello.
Victor: Your little display with that spectra woman was something.
Phyllis: She threw a drink in my face.
Victor: Kindly refrain from any further antics, alright?
Phyllis: Victor, I can’t be responsible for who your — your son, adam, decides to escort here on his arm. I mean, that girl is trouble. I provide the venue and the food, but the rest is you.
Victor: Phyllis, behave. I order my groceries online now.
Sally: Well, that was the most original rejection I’ve ever heard. Don’t you think you might be exaggerating a little bit?
Adam: No, I’m being absolutely truthful. This is not me making up an excuse, alright? ‘Cause I feel a definite attraction between us, sally, but whenever I’ve acted on this impulse with anybody, I have left a wake of destruction behind me.
Sally: I think you might be too hard on yourself.
Adam: No, I’m just being real. Trust me, I’ve been down this road before. It would be a huge mistake.
Sally: Okay, well, I strongly disagree, but since this is such an important night for you, i won’t argue.
Sally: And, frankly, I could make the same case to you about myself because my own romantic track record has a high toxicity level.
Adam: Sally, I want to be perfectly clear. This is in no way a reflection on you, alright? You are smart, and you are dynamic. You’re beautiful.
Sally: Uh, yeah, it’s not me, it’s you. I get it. It’s a damn shame, though, ’cause I feel like it would’ve been pretty spectacular.
Adam: Well, at least this way it can stay spectacular, locked away in our imaginations. Do we agree?
Victor: Tonight is about newman media, alright? So don’t make me regret spending all this money to hold this event at your hotel.
Phyllis: Okay, well, you should regret hiring sally spectra at your company. I mean, here she is, representing your company, and she threw a drink in my face.
Victor: I enjoyed the spectacle, by the way. Didn’t you dump ice water all over her?
Phyllis: Yeah. Well, yeah.
Victor: Let me deal with her, okay?
Phyllis: Okay, you deal with her. And while you’re at it, you should deal with adam. He should get better dates. But, if you ask me, he and sally spectra are a match made in hell.
Jack: A word of warning — sally and phyllis should be kept as far apart as possible for the remainder of the evening, maybe for the remainder of their lives.
Nick: Makes sense. I’m no fan of sally’s either.
Jack: Well, I understand that. I can’t defend her myself.
Sally: I should go outside and get some fresh air before your big speech. Okay.
Nick: Still trying to make sense of that pairing.
Jack: I’m not questioning it. To each his…or her own.
Nikki: Well, congratulations, nate.
Nate: Thank you.
Elena: He is gonna be an incredible chief of surgery. He’s already a brilliant surgeon, so he knows exactly what the department needs, and he’s got all these great ideas, like expanding the hospital’s surgical wing.
Nikki: Oh, I think that’s a wonderful idea. I mean, memorial’s surgical team is top-notch. I still have my granddaughter because of them. I will be forever grateful.
Elena: Right. And just think about all the extra lives we’ll be able to save with the expansion.
Nikki: Well, you sound very proud of him.
Elena: I couldn’t be more proud. I could go another hour talking about all of his accomplishments.
Nate: Okay, okay.
[ Chuckles ] Enough about me. I-I am not the only one making impressive career moves.
Nikki: Oh, is that right?
Nate: Yes, elena here is about to be the new face of askmdnow.
Victor: Well, now, I’m very sorry to hear that.
Nikki: Oh, now, victor, why on earth would you say such a thing?
Victor: Well, because adam was just about to offer elena a very good position as chief medical journalist for newman media.
Victor: If your contract with chanccomm is now untied, you can always jump ship, you know, and join a far more successful media company.
Elena: [ Exhales sharply ]
Think wearing less makeup
means no need for a wipe?
Abby: She told you about the nightmare that she had? She was held against her will for so long, I can’t help but worry that she’s gonna have lasting emotional scars.
Tessa: Look, I’m concerned, too, but I know how strong mariah is. She is resilient enough to get through this. We’re just gonna have to do everything we can to be there for her and show her nothing but support and love.
Abby: I can’t stop thinking about what mariah went through. She was locked up in a tiny room, no one to talk to, she didn’t know if anyone was coming for her, and she was desperate to protect little dominic, who was growing inside of her. Has she opened up to you about any of this?
Tessa: I’m sure that she’s still processing. I’m gonna talk to sharon about some treatment for her, but I’m hoping that all she really needs is some time.
Abby: [ Sighs ]
[ Footsteps approaching ]
Dana: Little dominic needs feeding.
Mariah: Oh, yeah. Um, I just pumped my milk into a bottle. But would it be okay if — if i fed him?
Billy: I found nothing. No secret, no surprise about what they’re planning on launch tonight, which means there’s nothing going on, and this is all smoke and mirrors. Either way [Sighs] What are we doing wasting our time? Let’s get the hell out of here.
Lily: Okay, is it possible maybe you heard all the positive buzz going around and you got bummed out?
[ Chuckles ] Come on. What do you expect? We’re at a party filled with people singing newman media’s praises. Doesn’t mean that we can’t try to outmaneuver them still.
Billy: I know, but it’s nauseating, watching them congratulate each other over and over. Let’s go have dinner at society.
Lily: Oh, my — no, that is petty.
Billy: What’s worse, I die of boredom, watching them pat each other on the back over and over and over?
Lily: Well, if you die of boredom, then you can’t indulge in what I have planned later.
Billy: Consider me very much alive.
Victor: Well, now, in case you haven’t made a definite commitment to chanccomm, newman media is open to offering you a very lucrative contract, you know.
Elena: [ Exhales sharply ] Wow. I am so flattered, but I’ve already accepted chanccomm’s offer.
Victor: Well, have you signed the contract?
Elena: No, but I gave them my word, and I won’t go back on that.
Victor: I see, I see, I see. Well, sorry to hear that, but i admire your loyalty.
Nikki: Congratulations again. Enjoy the rest of your evening.
Victor: Oh, nice to see you.
Nate: Wow. I am more impressed with you than ever. Not only did you walk away from a boatload of money, but you turned victor newman down flat.
Elena: [ Chuckles ]
Nate: Not many people have the guts to do that.
Elena: Well, I wasn’t gonna abandon lily and sign with her competitor. What kind of person would do that?
Nate: Definitely not your kind.
[ Both chuckle ]
Elena: I will say it feels really good to be wanted.
Nate: Mm. And I will say media companies aren’t the only ones who want you.
Adam: Dad. Well, looks like a banner night for newman media.
Victor: Well, I don’t entirely agree. What your girlfriend, or your date for the night, displayed earlier was not good. It almost ruined tonight’s festivities, you know.
Adam: You have nothing to worry about. It’s all under control. Media companies, they thrive on headlines, even when they occasionally create a couple scandalous ones of their own.
Victor: I prefer headlines that point out the successful debut of tonight’s opening of the newman media company, okay?
Adam: I promise you that we will come out of this like champions. We ready to get things rolling?
Victor: This is your night, you know.
Adam: [ Clears throat ] Good evening, everyone. Thanks for coming. If you will join me in the ballroom for the main event, the rise of the next generation of media companies. Nope
Lily: Okay, look, i understand if you want to skip this part, alright, so I will go represent for us, okay? And, plus, I want to see everyone’s reaction.
Billy: Have at it. Better you than me.
[ Sighs ] Hi. Can I get a, uh — make it a double, please — scotch.
[ Clears throat ]
Phyllis: Hey, did they complete sound check? Okay, that’s good to know. Uh, okay, thanks. Hey, baby, you want a drink?
Nick: Hey. No.
Nick: I want to know what happened. Now, jack had your back and didn’t say much more than you and sally were just butting heads.
Phyllis: I mean, I may have exacerbated the situation by, uh, telling her that she was not welcome at the party and that she should leave and keep on going until [Clears throat] She’s out of town.
Nick: Really? Then what?
Phyllis: Uh, I believe that got her angry.
Nick: You think?
Phyllis: Uh, and then, um, may have provoked her to throw a drink in my face, and that may have then caused me to take the ice bucket and pour it over her head. I deeply regret my actions.
Nick: Do you?
Phyllis: No, I don’T. I-I really don’T. I don’T. It was awesome seeing her as a waterlogged mess. It was great.
Nick: Okay. Uh, where did jack come in?
Phyllis: Well, she kept coming at me, and I’m not just gonna stand back and do nothing. So I lunged at her and jack pulled me back and then adam reined her in.
Nick: Listen, I really get your animosity toward her, alright? It’s tough to forget everything she did to our daughter, but you have got to let it go and move forward, because, I’m telling you, sally isn’t going anywhere.
Phyllis: Oh, no. Do you think that’s true?
Nick: She seems very determined to make her mark here. Now, I’m as angry as you are about what she’s done to summer, okay, but it doesn’t do anyone any good for you to kick the hornet’s nest every time the two of you are around each other.
Phyllis: Okay, you make a good point. Well, look at that over there. That’s — that’s a sad sight.
Nick: Since my dad asked me to keep an eye on him, I guess that’s my cue.
Phyllis: Hey, um, I’m sorry if I embarrassed you. And you’re right. You’re right. I’ll just move on from here.
Nick: It’s alright. Just try and stay dry the rest of the night.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] I will. Ugh, wait a second. No, that’s the wrong one. No, no, no, no.
Nick: [ Sighs ] What are you doing out here, billy? Newman media’s about to take off, and, uh, I thought you were willing to spy to figure out what their game plan was.
Billy: Well, I was, but now that it’s all out in the open, it’s a bit of a bore, isn’t it? And, really, I don’t want to hear adam blah-blah-blah about how tremendous newman media’s gonna be. I’d rather sit here by myself.
[ Applause ]
Victor: Good evening. Welcome, everyone, and thank you for coming. I’m very proud to announce the launch of a new enterprise, a new venture, but I’m even prouder to announce that I will be partnering in this venture with my son, adam. We are starting a whole new enterprise, one you will all hear about, I promise you. Without further ado, let me introduce to you the ceo of newman media, my son, adam newman.
[ Applause ]
Adam: Thanks, dad.
[ Sighs ] And thank you all for, uh, coming out to support the most innovative, dynamic, new media company. Now, I bet you’re all wondering what it is about newman media that makes it destined for such phenomenal success, and the answer is power. The power and strength of family, something my father’s been trying to teach me for years. Well, dad, it, uh — it’s finally sunken in. This company was born out of family, it was named for family, and soon we’ll be working with family, doing charitable work with my brother nicholas’ new hope organization, and one day, I hope to bring my own son into the business, just like my father has done with me. But I know I am getting ahead of myself, uh, already thinking about the next generations, and I should be focused on our launch, but we have a lot of new and exciting outlets and platforms in store. So brace yourselves, world, because newman media is coming out swinging.
[ Applause ] Is olay better than your clean beauty?
“The young and the restless”
Lily: I mean, I hate to admit it, but adam put on a surprisingly good speech.
Elena: Yeah, it was so sincere and enthusiastic. You think he’s turned a new corner?
Lily: I mean, it could’ve been an act, but whatever it is, I’m glad I didn’t miss it.
Elena: Speaking of missing, aren’t devon and amanda supposed to be here?
Lily: Uh, they decided to stay in ’cause amanda’s leaving early tomorrow to go on a trip with her mom and sister.
Elena: Aww, she must be so excited to be getting so much closer with them. And he must be so worn out from spending so much time at the hospital. Ah, he’s been so heroic in chance’s absence. He’s been going above and beyond to save mariah and then help bring baby dominic into the world.
Lily: I know.
Elena: [ Sighs ] Oh, excuse me. I am being summoned.
Elena: [ Chuckles ]
Billy: So, what’d I miss? Anything exciting?
Lily: Well, neither victor nor adam made any mention of their competition’s name, including chanccomm.
Billy: Of course not. They’re not gonna give us the free press. But that does not mean that they’re gonna play fairly.
Lily: No, and there were no shots fired, but adam made it very clear that he’s planning on expanding from locke’s original company by procuring more talent and outlets.
Billy: Why am I not surprised?
Lily: Yeah, and he didn’t specify any targets, but I swear he glanced my way.
Billy: Well, let him come after us. We’ll do everything we can to protect our assets.
Lily: And, I don’t know, i might’ve misread victor’s reaction, but it seemed like he didn’t seem very pleased when adam mentioned adding on more entities.
Billy: Well, now, that is exciting, because victor would not give up an opportunity to come and take a shot at chanccomm, which means, if I’m correct, they’re not on the same page.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Okay, honestly, what did you think?
Jack: Well, I’m never going to sing victor newman’s praises, but I’m happy for adam. I want to see him turn his life around. I want to see him put all the anger and resentment in the past. You know what else I think?
Phyllis: I asked you, didn’t I?
Jack: I think the venue was spectacular, I think the food was amazing, and I think all of your hard work really showed.
Phyllis: Thank you. Thank you very much. Ah, I just hope that newman media feels the same. I-I hope that all of that overshadows, you know, that little dustup earlier. By the way, thank you. Thank you for controlling me so it didn’t, you know, go any further.
Jack: Well, I just wanted to spare the loss of any more valuable champagne.
Phyllis: [ Laughs ] Yeah, but it would’ve been worth it to see sally drenched. It would’ve been worth every dime.
[ Chuckles ] Oh, by the way, I hope this is dry. Thank you.
[ Chuckles ]
Abby: I’m gonna go visit dominic.
Tessa: Yes, uh, I would love to join you. I want to be there when mariah wakes up. I do have a surprise for you. I have been writing a lullaby for the baby.
Abby: You have? Ah, play it for me, please, right now.
Tessa: Okay, yes, but it is definitely not done, and I still have some fine-tuning to do.
Waiting all of my life
for the day we’d meet
as the sun goes to sleep
time for you to dream
to stars like an ocean
here I’ll stay
keep you safe
’cause dreams are for hoping
so please go to sleep
please go to sleep
please go to sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep
managing type 2 diabetes?
Victor: I think it was a great success so far.
Adam: We pulled it off. I think it was a hit.
Billy: Ah, well, gentlemen, congratulations. Newman media made it through the night with barely a scandal.
Victor: Who asked you to come over here and talk to us? By the way, you look like three sheets to the wind, you know? You had too much of that good liquor, right?
Adam: Everyone here tonight would agree it was nothing less than a grand slam.
Billy: Well, we’ll see what happens in the morning when you have to actually accomplish something. There’s a big difference between throwing a mediocre party and actually connecting to the masses.
Victor: Oh, you connect to the masses?
Billy: You know, you guys, you have to actually say something that people want to hear in order to have a successful business.
Victor: And you do?
Billy: Oh, yeah.
Billy: Oh, and just so we’re clear, whatever you have planned for chanccomm, we’ll be ready.
Adam: Uh-huh. You a little paranoid?
Billy: No, no, not at all. But I don’t trust him. Oh, and I would check with, uh — with phyllis, as well. If you plan on having your going-out-of-business party here, as well, it’ll probably be around the holidays, so you might want to check and see. Usually gets booked up.
Victor: Billy boy… you always have been and always will be a pain in the ass, okay?
Billy: Thank you.
Victor: You have a nice evening. Don’t drink too much of that, okay?
Billy: I’ll be fine.
Victor: We have business to discuss.
Lily: Okay, what did I miss?
Billy: Nothing. I simply came over here to congratulate the competition, and it turned into a posturing event.
Lily: Right. On both sides, I’m sure.
Billy: Can we stop talking about newman media? I think you’ll be happy to see that I didn’t die of boredom, so I am ready to start that after party.
Lily: Oh, I want to get out of here more than you do.
Billy: Trust me, I do not think so.
Lily: [ Chuckles ]
Billy: You got us a suite?
Lily: Well, victoria opted out of the party and stayed home with the kids, so no need for us to rush back home. And, uh, I don’t know. I felt sentimental being back here.
Billy: I like the way you’re thinking.
Lily: And I didn’t book just any suite, but I booked your old suite, ’cause that’s where we first made love. That’s where it all began.
[ Chuckles ]
Billy: And that’s where it’ll all continue.
Lily: [ Chuckles ]
Billy: Let’s go upstairs.
Elena: It’s so nice of you to escort me home.
Nate: So nice to have shared this evening with you, even though I now know I was just the plus-one of the hot new talent victor was trying to woo…
Elena: [ Chuckles ]
Nate: …And not invited on my own merits.
Elena: Very funny. I can’t believe I am so in demand right now.
Nate: Well, I am glad I am not the only one who realizes how amazing and special you are. Other people are clearly catching on.
Elena: Well, thank you. But I’m not the only person who’s been shown appreciation. You got nikki newman to offer to help you fundraise for the hospital expansion? How cool is that?
Nate: I know. Tell me about it. I am so stoked to have the fundraising goddess on my side.
Elena: [ Chuckles ] I think we’re on a lucky streak. Maybe we shouldn’t jinx it.
Nate: Ooh, ooh, I don’t — i don’t think we could. Some things are ironclad. Unjinxable.
Elena: I don’t think that’s a word.
Nate: Maybe not, but it’s a fact.
Elena: Hmm. So maybe we should prove that point and keep the night going. I don’t have to work tomorrow, so I can sleep in.
Nate: Mm, I like the sound of that. I think I can actually, uh, change my schedule a little bit myself to stay in.
Elena: Mm. Ariah: Look at you. Yeah, look at you. Oh, boy. We had quite an adventure, didn’t we? You know, I was not sure that we were gonna make it out of there, and, you know what, we probably wouldn’t have if it weren’t for you. You kept me sane in there. You know that? And I’m not gonna forget a single second of it, okay? Oh, gosh.
[ Sniffles ] Wow. It feels so different, holding you out here in my arms than it did when you were inside of me.
[ Sniffles ] I can’t believe how natural it feels, holding you. Do you want to know a secret? Yeah? Do you? I wish I could breastfeed you. Yeah. But I can’T. It’s in the contract I signed.
[ Sniffles ] Don’t worry, okay? That’s my milk. That’s my milk that you’re eating right now. It’s gonna make you strong. It’s gonna make you healthy. Bowie. That’s what you’ll always be to me.
[ Sniffles ] My sweet precious little bowie.
[ Footsteps approaching ] With downy infusions, let the scent set the mood.
Phyllis: I mean, honestly, why did I take the bait? Why did I let that little girl get to me? Seriously? [ Sighs ] Last thing I needed was another scandal at some event at my hotel.
Nick: You got to stop blaming yourself. Sally is a button-pusher. She’s gonna take every opportunity she has to push yours, alright? You should be proud of yourself. You didn’t let things get out of control. My dad’s night wasn’t ruined. There was no real damage done.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Okay. I mean, you’re not gonna judge me for that?
Nick: Like I said, no harm, no foul.
Phyllis: Okay. Thanks. So, are you still gonna pamper me?
Nick: Mm. Yeah, I mean, you’re gonna have to lose the headset first, for sure.
Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Really?
Phyllis: Mm. Oh, hang on for a second. Security. Yeah? Oh, yeah, you see the super sexy guy in my room? Okay. What? Um, I’m sorry. We’re gonna need you to take off your jacket and your shirt. Yeah, he’s taking it off right now. And your tie.
Nick: And the tie? Okay.
Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Okay.
[ Chuckles ]
Nikki: Well, congratulations, darling. Your launch was a smashing success.
Victor: Yeah, I think so, toO. But, you know, I’m still troubled by adam flirting with that woman, whatever her name is.
Nikki: Yeah, sally spectra.
Victor: Oh, okay.
Nikki: I don’t disagree with you. I’m troubled by that woman period. After what she did to summer, she has proven that she can’t be trusted.
Nikki: We’re gonna have to keep an eye on her very carefully.
Victor: Oh, yeah. But you know, I can admit I-i kind of enjoyed phyllis taking that bucket of ice water and pouring it all over her head.
Nikki: I liked that, too.
Victor: You did?
[ Both chuckle ] Oh, yeah. Well, you know, a little excitement.
Sally: I can’t thank you enough for being so understanding about my little scuffle with phyllis tonight. I doubt your father feels the same way. He didn’t seem too pleased.
Adam: Did he say anything to you?
Sally: Mnh-mnh. He didn’t have to. That man has a death glare that could flatten a whole town.
Adam: Listen, um, don’t worry about my dad. He has bigger fish to flatten. Trust me. More importantly, though, how do you think the speeches went over?
Sally: You’re a born leader. Proved yourself to be quite the visionary, and I wasn’t the only one impressed with everything you have to offer. Well, it is getting late. I better get home. In case you were wondering, the answer is yes.
Sally: Despite your warning, there is a good chance that i will be dreaming of spectacular things tonight about what might’ve been.
Tessa: Aww, mariah, you’re awake. I’m sorry. I wanted to be here when you woke up.
Mariah: Oh, that’s okay. I was just feeding the baby. Um, I’m sorry, abby. It’s just he wa– he was hungry, so…
Abby: No, no, that’s okay. Um, if he needed to be fed, yeah. Um, you know what? Uh, I’m sure he’s not finished yet. Can I take over?
Mariah: Um, he is. Sorry. [ Chuckles ]
Tessa: Well, hey, uh, i finished the lullaby, and, judging by abby’s reaction, she seems like a big fan.
Abby: He probably needs to be burped. I can do it. Yeah?
Abby: Thanks. Oh, dominic. Hi. Mommy’s here. Hi, my love. Oh, you are so perfect. My little dominic. I love you so much. Hi, my precious boy.
Next week on
“the young and the restless”…
Victoria: I had a run-in with billy. Just seems that, no matter what I say, he’s bound and determined to find something damning in your past.
Abby: Welcome, dominic, to your new home and family.
Phyllis: Thoroughly sally. I don’t know who you were hoping she would turn out to be.
Jack: You want an honest answer? I guess I was hoping she’d turn into you.
