Young & The Restless Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
It’s just what is in my heart, but I — I’d hate to think that it would in any way get in the way of things with you and nick. Was nick okay?
Phyllis: Yeah. Yeah, he was okay. Um, he’s actually out of town right now. He’s, uh…doing a couple things before victoria’s wedding.
Jack: Oh, what seems to be the problem?
Phyllis: Oh, there’s no problem. Not at all. I think he’s just trying to surprise victoria with something, but that’s the thing is, um, I don’t know if he’ll be back in genoa city before we take off to go to milan, and he may just have to meet us there, fly from new jersey. He’s in new jersey.
Jack: If that happens, it would be just you and me on the jet.
Phyllis: Well, traci’s coming, right?
Jack: Traci is going to new york to meet with her agent now, so you and I would be flying to milan alone. Are you comfortable with that? You don’t get much time for yourself.
Phyllis: There is no situation in the world with you that would make me uncomfortable. I’d love to share a flight with you.
Jack: Good, I’m glad to hear that.
Phyllis: Yes, and by the way, I want to apologize for being suspicious regarding your intentions toward nick. I just — you just wanted to be honest.
Phyllis: Oh, hi.
Victoria: I was wondering if you had heard from nick.
Jack: Uh, you know, I’m gonna take that as my cue. I’m gonna keep moving. Um, nice to see you, victoria. Stay in touch with your travel plans.
Phyllis: Will do.
Victoria: I just heard that nick took the jet to new jersey. I want to know why.
Faith: Okay, you’re right. I haven’t been honest about why I’m backing out of our date. I’m sorry. I’m so embarrassed that I let this happen. I’m dying to go. I love spending time with you. And I feel awful that you spent all this time planning, but
[Sighs] I’ve fallen behind on my schoolwork.
Moses: Okay. Like, how behind?
Faith: Like, really behind. It was originally only a few classes, but then i procrastinated a couple of other assignments and now I have work due for practically every class.
Moses: Well, could you knock some of it out this afternoon and then finish the rest over the next few days?
Faith: [ Sighs ] I probably could’ve, but the school called my mom, so now…
Moses: I get it. Yeah, you can’t go on our date ’cause you need to finish your work.
Faith: This is all my fault. I don’t know how I got so behind. I feel terrible that I messed this up.
Moses: No, don’t blame yourself, when, actually, I’m to blame.
Faith: How could any of this possibly be your fault when I’m the one who has to finish three essays, a week of math, and a history project by tomorrow?
Moses: Because I’ve been the one who’s been keeping you from your work.
Faith: Yeah. Unfortunately, that’s what my mom thinks. That’s why I can’t go out with you until I’m all caught up. There’s just so much work. And I have a lot of it written down in my notebook, but it’s gonna take me hours just to type it all in. I may be a whiz at texting, but I am slow on a regular keyboard. I feel awful. I should’ve stayed on top of it. I’m sorry that I ruined everything.
Moses: No, you haven’T. And I may have a solution.
Adam: Thank you.
Adam: Hey, jack.
Jack: Hey, I’ve just been thinking of you. I read a very complimentary article about you and newman media.
Adam: Well, I have to admit, it is nice to get a little good press. It’s a welcome change of pace.
Jack: I’m sure it is. Well, the article said the expansion’s going very well, and — how did they put it? — It is a business renaissance for adam newman.
Adam: Just a fancy way of saying I’ve gotten a do-over.
Jack: Well, fancy or not, it sounds like you’re turning things around, and I couldn’t be happier for you.
Adam: Well, connor is definitely one source of my inspiration. He makes me want to be a better man, so having him living with me again, it’s a daily reminder of that.
Jack: Isn’t it amazing how our kids can inspire us in great and unexpected ways?
Adam: Grateful for it every day.
Jack: Hey, speaking of family, are you going to be in tuscany for victoria’s big day?
Adam: It’s actually funny you should ask because I got an invitation today, but I’m sure it’s a mistake. Her wedding planner probably just sent out an invitation to everybody in the newman address book, so… victoria’s made it clear that i am persona non grata in italy.
Phyllis: I don’t have an answer for you. Nick is doing new hope business.
Victoria: Except that new hope doesn’t have any business in new jersey, at least not that I know of. But we both know who does. That’s where ashland got his start. Does this have anything to do with him?
Phyllis: Why are you suddenly suspicious of your brother? I mean, all he wants is the best for you and he wants you to be happy.
Victoria: There are a lot of people claiming to have my best interests at heart who are also trying to dig up dirt on ashland and make my — admittedly — whirlwind wedding even more stressful, and that includes my brother.
Phyllis: Wow, you know, don’t take this the wrong way, but isn’t this what they call, um, like, transference? You know, with everything that’s gone on, maybe what you’re doing is trying to push suspicion and target it somewhere else instead of the place it should be, which is on ashland, not your brother.
Victoria: That is ridiculous. But thank you so much for your dime-store psychoanalysis. I’ve got moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
Lauren: Oh, my goodness, I am so sorry I’m late. I have a team of seamstresses hand-sewing the dress, and i literally had to pry it out of their hands.
Victoria: Thank you so much for coming over personally with it.
Lauren: Well, of course! I’m so excited to be involved. Oh, my goodness, this is going to be the dress of the season.
Victoria: Oh, I hope so.
Lauren: One of my favorite fashion designers has completely outdone herself. It is like nothing I have ever seen. I think you’re gonna love it.
Victoria: Well, I’ve only glimpsed at the sketches, but i think they look great.
Lauren: Well, then let’s see it on you, shall we? I’ve reserved a room upstairs for the fitting.
Phyllis: Here’s your key card. Room 600.
Lauren: Thank you.
Phyllis: You’re welcome. To be honest, I’m a little jealous. I only got to help summer with her dress through video chats, you know, so… anyway, I guess working for marchetti gets an embarrassment of riches. But I’m sure yours will look fine, too.
Victoria: And I’m sure that summer’s dress will be stunning.
Phyllis: Oh, I’m sure! If you want another set of eyes, I’m here.
Victoria: I’m sorry, phyllis. You haven’t exactly achieved bridesmaid status yet.
Phyllis: Well, okay. Room 600. Um, excuse me. I’m sorry, when are you gonna get this? You are not welcome at the grand phoenix ever.
Sally: Well, when are you gonna get that I am not going anywhere. I’m a part of this town, so get used to it.
Jack: You know, I’m not sure you should look at that wedding invitation as a mistake. Wedding’s have a funny way of bringing families together. Maybe victoria is impressed that you’ve turned over a new leaf.
Adam: As much as I am trying to be a better person, I don’t think victoria’s ready to accept me as a brother that she could love.
Jack: Well, perhaps your showing up at the wedding could go a long way toward making her understand you care.
Adam: Not sure that’ll work. Besides, I shouldn’t be away from connor for that long, and i don’t want to take him out of school. He’s just starting to get acclimated to walnut grove after being at boarding school. I don’t want to do anything to disrupt that.
Jack: Okay, I’m sure there are lots of things you need to consider. I’m sure you’ll do the right thing for connor and for yourself.
Adam: Trying my best.
Faith: I can’t imagine what solution you could have that would help me finish this amount of schoolwork, unless it involves stopping time.
Moses: We’ll do it together, and then we’ll get it done twice as fast.
Faith: Hmm. I appreciate the offer, but i can’t see how two people doing schoolwork together could cut the time in half.
Moses: Well, I’ve already done my homework.
Faith: Okay, but —
Moses: So that frees me up to help you. It’ll be two people tackling one mountain of work, and by my calculation, we’ll get it done in half the time.
Faith: Okay, but wouldn’t that be, like, cheating?
Moses: You said you had most of it written in your notebook already and you’re just a slow typist. It so happens that I’m wickedly fast on the keyboard, so I’ll just be transcribing what you’ve already done.
Faith: Then that wouldn’t be cheating. It’d be helping.
Phyllis: Sally, you’re standing in my hotel. Mine. Please, don’t make me get security to throw you out.
Sally: Oh. You want to cause a scene? Or should I say yet another scene at the grand phoenix? Let me just make sure that I get this one on video, so, uh…go aheaD.
Chloe: There you are. Oh, hi. I wanted sally to meet me here, and I am thrilled that you are here, too.
Phyllis: Well, that makes one of us.
Chloe: Let me change your mind. Sally and I came here because we have a business proposal for you.
Phyllis: I don’t have anything on my calendar.
Chloe: Well, we didn’t try to get an appointment because we knew you would say no.
Phyllis: Well, you have that right. Why would I do business with the very person who drove my daughter out of the country?
Sally: Oh, for pete’s sake, when are you gonna let that go? If summer really was that miserable in milan, she and kyle would’ve come back. The fact that she’s still there means one of two things — either she loves working at marchetti so much that she doesn’t want to leave or she just secretly hates being around you and she’s willing to move a thousand miles away to avoid running into you.
Chloe: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Sally — mnh-mnh. Okay, so she is clearly very passionate, which is exactly the kind of focus and energy that we want to put into our shoot that we want to do here.
Sally: The spread is for the new fashion platform, and it’s all about beauty, drama, and high style.
Chloe: Just picture the most stunning models in gorgeous fashion. We have an incredible photographer, a great stylist. It is such a win for our site and great publicity for the grand phoenix.
Phyllis: Well, you have that right. That’s a great idea. It really is. Spectacular, actually. Um…I love it. Fire her, and I’ll do it. Plaque psoriasis, the tightness, stinging…
“The young and the restless”
Lauren: Oh. Wow. Now, remember, it’s not finished yet, but it’s fabulous. I mean, what do you think?
Victoria: I, um…I think it’s very pretty, but it’s not exactly what I pictured when i looked at the sketches.
Lauren: Oh. Okay. I mean, I understand how certain design elements don’t translate, but, you know, the fit is a little off. Um…let’s take it in in the bodice and, you know, adjust the pleats in front. Now, did you bring your shoes so we can hem it?
Victoria: No, I forgot.
Lauren: Oh, no problem. No problem. And I know we didn’t talk about a veil yet or headpieces, but don’t worry, I brought you a lot of options.
Victoria: Listen, lauren, it’s not your fault and it’s not the designer’s fault. I think that I’m just putting incredibly high standards on people because I have such high expectations for this wedding. I really, really want it to be something spectacular.
Lauren: And it will be. You deserve that, and I’m going to help you. We are going to fix this dress, and it will be worthy of the occasion. Don’t worry. We have the time.
Victoria: Yes, I know, I keep telling myself that, but…the day is just — it’s coming so soon and there’s just so much to do.
Lauren: I hear you. Could you give us a moment? Thank you. Are you sure the dress is the only thing that’s bothering you?
Victoria: Yes. Really.
Lauren: You know, I have helped a lot of powerful women design their dream gown, and when the garment doesn’t live up to their expectation, there’s usually a full-on freak-out by now.
Victoria: So my reaction wasn’t bridezilla enough for you?
Lauren: [ Laughs ] Wasn’t even baby-zilla.
[ Both laugh ] Look, you have a lot on your mind right now. It’s okay to take it out on the dress.
Victoria: Lauren, everything is fine.
Chloe: You really need to learn to keep a lid on iT.
Sally: I’m sorry. Phyllis just gets under my skin.
Chloe: Well, we came here to get something from her, and going after her like that just ensured that we failed.
Sally: Okay, but we might not have failed on all fronts.
Chloe: But we didn’t get the location for our shoot, so what other fronts are there?
Sally: Well, right before you got here, lauren and victoria went upstairs. There was a woman carrying a garment bag. How much you want to bet that that was victoria’s wedding gown?
Chloe: Yeah, that’s a pretty good theory, but I also assume that victoria turned you down when you offered to make her her dress.
Sally: I actually never got the chance to make the offer. I couldn’t set up a meeting. The woman turned me down three times, or rather, her assistant did.
Chloe: It was a one in a million shot anyway. Let it go.
Sally: I’m not giving up yet.
Chloe: You just said that you saw victoria going upstairs for a fitting. It sounds like the princess already got her gown.
Sally: Okay, well, letting things go is not how I’ve gotten where I am.
Chloe: Where you are? You have alienated half of genoa city. Your tainted reputation is going to take a very long time to repair.
Sally: Well, I may be able to quicken the pace if I offer victoria a wedding dress as a gift — and not just any wedding dress, but a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that will have everyone talking.
Chloe: I don’t think you trying to insinuate yourself into victoria newman’s wedding plans is the best strategy. It could very well blow up in your face and make things worse for you.
Moses: Alright. Let’s do this.
Faith: Okay, let me find my spot. “When it was lunchtime, we finished our dish, then we were given a huge bag to take home and a basket, as well. These two items that were given to us by the farmer and the rest of the people. Ms. Willington was being awed during the explanation the farmer gave us.”
[ Both laugh ] What’s another word for inflexible?
[ Sighs ] Oh, my god, we did it.
Moses: We sure did.
Faith: I never could’ve done it without your help. Even if we don’t do anything else tonight, this was the best date ever.
Moses: [ Chuckles ] You’re setting the bar pretty low.
Faith: [ Laughs ] I guess you’re right.
Moses: So, are you ready for the real date?
Moses: What’s wrong now?
Faith: I have to go home and change. This is a special occasion. I can’t go out like this.
Moses: [ Chuckles ] You look beautiful just the way you are now. But I’ll come and pick you up in an hour. You can tell your mom and rey that I’ll have you back by curfew.
Faith: Smooth move.
Moses: I have my moments.
Devon: [ Clears throat ] Hey. Did you get everything put away?
Amanda: Thank you for leaving me all that space in the closets.
Devon: Oh, absolutely. Abby gave me some advice. She said if you ever ask a woman to come live with you, you have to give her at least equal or more closet space.
Amanda: Ooh, wise words.
Devon: Yeah. Would you some tea or something to eat? I have earl grey and biscotti.
Devon: Of course.
Amanda: [ Chuckles ] Did abby tell you to buy all of my favorite foods, too?
Devon: No, she didn’T. That’s all me.
Amanda: Well, I’m actually not hungry.
Amanda: Not even for my favorite things, but I do want to do one of my favorite things. Hang out with you.
[ Both laugh ]
Devon: We can do that. – Bedtime!! – Bedtime.
[ Knock on door ]
Victoria: What are you doing here?
Adam: Good to see you, too. I guess my initial instinct was right — the wedding invitation was a mistake. So just pretend I never came by.
Victoria: No, wait, wait. It wasn’t a mistake. I’m sorry that your invite was late in coming.
Adam: Why the change of heart? Is it possible that things can warm up a bit a between us from whatever sub-arctic temperature we’re at now?
Victoria: I wouldn’t go that far. I’m inviting you because of our father.
Adam: He asked you to?
Victoria: He didn’t need to. We both know how important family is to him, and that includes you, too.
Adam: [ Chuckles ]
Victoria: Apparently, this new and improved adam is lasting a lot longer than I thought it would. You must be in the middle of some “renaissance” or something.
Adam: You read the article.
Victoria: I just thought it would be a nice way to say thank you to dad for being so supportive of the locke merger and my marriage to ashland. He even gave his blessing for the new portrait.
Adam: [ Clears throat ] Well, I’m not sure how the hell you got him to do that, but kudos.
Victoria: I know that nothing would make our father happier than to have his entire family at the wedding. And as much as I hate to inflate your ego any more, ashland has a certain respect for you. He admires the way that you stepped up and took over newman media, despite the fact that most of the world despises you.
Adam: Thank you?
Victoria: So, what do you think?
Adam: I mean, you genuinely want me there?
Victoria: I wouldn’t push it, if I were you. I’m not going to beg you. You and I both know that i personally do not want you there.
Adam: Uh-huh, I got it. You know, I thought I would be doing you a favor by not attending, but then it occurred to me that, after all the years of trying to get you to include me in your life, you finally opened a door, so it would be a mistake not to go. Not to mention, rude, regardless of what the motivation was behind the invite.
Victoria: So is that a yes?
Adam: Yes. I’d like to make dad happy, too, but I can see that this wedding is important to you, so that is reason enough to be there to witness it.
Victoria: You know, it’s kind of weird that you’re being so thoughtful. I might have to upgrade you from the kiddie table.
Adam: Oh, I could sit at the one for business associates or weird single people.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ] This doesn’t mean that we’re friends.
Adam: I’ll settle for family. Got to start somewhere.
Sally: So, when are you meeting with adam?
Chloe: In a few minutes.
Sally: Okay. Take a look at this dress. Tell me this would not look amazing on victoria.
Chloe: Wow. It’s gorgeous. It’s — yeah, it’s regal and sophisticated with hints of old world glamour. It’s so cutting-edge. Save it for the next grand wedding in genoa city. It’ll look great on anyone.
Sally: That is not true. The whole point is that i designed it specifically for victoria. Everything you just described it as describes my muse. Her delicate frame, her classic, stately good looks. She’s the perfect combination of a modern, powerful, hardworking woman and a timeless beauty. This dress is for her and only her.
Chloe: I admit, it is more detailed and advanced than anything you’ve shown me, and i bet that victoria will fall in love with it. Which really has me thinking, between you and chelsea, we are sitting on a gold mine of unused designer talent. Maybe we should be thinking bigger than just the media platform.
Sally: I like the sound of that.
Chloe: What about a newman fashion line? It’ll be expansive and synergistic. The next step in our path to world domination.
[ Both laugh ]
Adam: World domination, huh? What are you two plotting?
Chloe: Sally’s on her way to society to meet with a renowned fashion magazine editor to promote newman media and discuss the latest trends, and I am confident that she is going to love everything that we have planned.
Adam: I’m sure she will. Knock ’em dead, sally.
Sally: Hey, before I go, i was just wondering if you were going to tuscany for your sister’s wedding.
Adam: Why do you ask?
Sally: I mean, I was just curious ’cause I know a little bit about the history between you two. You don’t exactly get along.
Adam: That is an accurate description. But, uh, she did just extend an invitation to me today.
Sally: Aw, that’s nice.
Adam: Wasn’t about me as much as my dad, but we’ll see. What’s the angle behind your question? I don’t have a date, and I’m not looking for one, if that’s why you’re asking.
Sally: Wow, aren’t you full of yourself. That’s a bit presumptuous.
Adam: My mistake.
Sally: I wasn’t asking to be your date. But, you know, if you want a friend or a colleague to join you, you have my number.
Devon: Yeah, that trip to the park was the first real alone time I got to have with the baby.
Amanda: Well, I am sure that abby appreciated the break. Being a new mom, gosh, it sounds exhausting.
Devon: Oh, you have no idea. She’s been wiped out. I was more than happy to do it. It’s special getting to just hang out and relax with that little guy.
Amanda: You’re being careful not to call him your son, huh?
Devon: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. I mean, I think that’s an important boundary to keep. I’m seeing how hard this has all been for mariah.
Amanda: Yeah. She’s a cautionary tale.
Devon: Just knowing how much she’s struggling through everything is — worries me and it shows me how hard it can be if you let yourself get overly attached. And yet, you know…
Amanda: Devon, you love dominic. He has your genes, how could you not be attached?
Devon: Well, mariah’s doing better, though. She’s — I think that it was a good idea for her to move out of the mansion.
Amanda: Yeah, that was a complex dynamic.
Devon: I really like that i can talk to you about anything.
Devon: I do. You understand me. What’s going on with you, though? What’s happening? What’s the update with naya and how was hanging out with imani?
Amanda: Oh. Naya, I mean, we’ve gotten some promising news, now that she’s settled with all of the right doctors.
Amanda: And I know that having a sister is new, but it feels so nice to have someone to share my anxieties with, you know, someone that I can call family. And I haven’t known imani that long, but I don’t know, there’s something about her, you know? She makes me feel comfortable. Kind of like you. I feel like I can breathe. I feel like I’M…
Devon: Like you’re home?
Amanda: Yeah, home.
[ Laughs ] If you are thinking what I am thinking, that is a pretty decadent for the middle of the afternoon.
Devon: What? And tonight’s winning numbers are 18,
Devon: I mean, I was just thinking that I should give you a tour of the penthouse, ’cause you haven’t seen all the bells and whistles yet.
Amanda: Oh. Okay. Well, you know, I have seen the shower made for two, so… I’ve also seen the thousand thread count sheets, so we don’t need to see that, right?
Devon: Right, but — but see, you were a guest before, and now it all belongs to you.
Amanda: Mm. You’re right. This is gonna be different.
Amanda: Yeah. Then maybe I’m gonna do something that I’ve never done before. I am going to invite you to join me in our bedroom.
Devon: In our bedroom? Really, now? I like that.
Amanda: [ Laughs ]
Sally: HeY. It’s sally spectra. I was just wondering how long it would take to get a wedding dress if money were no problem? Really, that fast? Yeah, excellent. I’m sending the designs over right now. Okay, thanks.
Jack: There might be another change in the flight plan. Yeah, there may just be two of us on the flight to milan. Myself and phyllis summers.
Phyllis: Nick, I can’t believe you put me through voicemail. Listen, what’s going on? The suspense is killing me. Please call me.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
