Young & The Restless Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Sally: What do I want to drink?
Nick: Yeah. Chilly night like this, what sounds better? Maybe a big fruity cab or a cocktail?
Sally: I think I’m gonna pass. But I — I don’t wanna stop you.
Nick: What do you mean, you’re gonna pass? I thought we came out for dinner
Sally: I can’T. I mean, just, you know, because of the meeting tomorrow with jill, I just want to get a good night rest and wake up feeling refreshed.
Nick: Alright. I get it. Are you sure you’re okay?
Sally: I’m great. Don’t I seem great?
Nick: You look great. Actually, you seem a little nervous to me.
Nick: Yeah. And I think it’s my fault.
Sally: Why would you think that?
Nick: I asked you out to dinner. You know, I threw you off. You were working with chloe.
Sally: Well, you always throw me off. But in a good way. I don’t know. Maybe I just need a minute to get out of work mode and stop worrying about this big meeting.
Nick: Well, I’m just the man for that job.
Sally: Well, isn’t that the truth?
Nick: Gonna get you out of work mode and into —
Sally: Play mode. Yes, I’m in, you know, ’cause all work and no you know what makes me a very cranky girl.
Nick: Well, we don’t want that.
Sally: No, we do not. I’m really happy that you reached out to me. There’s no one else that I would rather spend the night with than you.
[ Footsteps approaching ]
Diane: Are you sure summer’s okay with not going?
Kyle: It took some convincing, but she finally agreed taking harrison to paris wasn’t necessary to keep him safe. We can do that while the situation with stark is being resolved.
Diane: Well, that’s a relief. It would kill me to think of an ocean between me and that sweet little boy.
Kyle: Uh… [ Sighs ] I don’t suppose you’ve heard anything from dad?
Diane: No, nothing since the last text when he was getting close to chicago city limits. But if traffic’s okay, which it should be at this time of night, he should be getting to nikki and victor’s pied–terre any moment, and he will get in there and swipe one of nikki’s ridiculously showy necklaces and get out of there with no one the wiser.
Kyle: I really hope this goes as smoothly as he said it would. My dad is taking a huge risk if he gets caught stealing from them.
Diane: Kyle, if jack wasn’t certain he could pull this off, he never would have suggested it. He will bring back the jewels, which I doubt that nikki will even miss. And I will present them to jeremy as my very illegal token of affection and loyalty. And then once his doubts are pushed aside, we can get on to the next phase of our plan.
Kyle: And you really think stark is actually going to buy all of this?
Diane: Trust me. Your mother still has what it takes to reel in the big fish. In fact, I’m meeting jeremy for drinks now — soon. What?
Kyle: I’m not gonna lie. I still hate every part of this plan. And it worries me, how wired you seem, as if you’re getting a kick out of the game.
Audra: I e-mailed the signed contract back to you. Thanks so much. I’m very much looking forward to joining newman media.
[ Knock on door ] Uh, I need to get going. Okay. Talk soon.
Tucker: Did you think you could just avoid me after what you did?
Audra: I figured you’d show up at some point.
Audra: Let’s get this over with.
Tucker: You were messy and careless. And you have absolutely blown it for devon and me. You failed me, audra.
[ Exhales sharply ] I’m not gonna forget it, either.
Music (“I swear”) plays
Sally: Hmm. Wow. That was surprisingly non-confrontational. So, dinner. Ooh — “pamplona de pollo — a colorful, stuffed, rolled, and grilled chicken breast.” I wonder what it’s stuffed with. Oh, my god, and their dessert of the day is argentinean flan. Have you had it here? It’s absolutely phenomenal. What are you thinking?
Nick: I’m thinking we should just get out of here. Let’s go eat somewhere else.
Sally: Why? I’ve been craving this food here.
Nick: I know, but I saw the look on your face when my brother walked in. I don’t like seeing you stressed.
Sally: Look, if we run every time we see adam, we’re gonna wear out our shoes within a week.
Nick: I want you to have a good time.
Sally: Look, I will, okay? And I refuse to let him get to me.
Nick: You sure?
Sally: Look, as long as everyone behaves, there’s no reason for us to leave. We’ll just pretend like he’s not even here.
Diane: I think you’re misinterpreting things. I’m not excited about any of this.
Kyle: I sure as hell hope not.
Diane: [ Sighs ] Okay, I’ll admit that in the past, the very distant past, I might have been. I used to thrive on the thrill of the game, but not anymore.
Kyle: Do you mean that?
Diane: Yes. I mean it. And rest assured, I am not getting sucked into jeremy’s mind-set. This is about shutting that man down once and for all. And, now, that I will enjoy immensely.
Kyle: I suppose I can’t blame you for that. Look, I just want all of this over with as soon as possible.
Diane: Yeah, me too. Alright. I better get going. I’m meeting him for drinks, and I don’t want to keep him waiting.
Diane: Ah, thank you.
Diane: [ Exhales heavily ]
Kyle: Hey. Please be careful.
Diane: I will be. I’ve got this.
Kyle: [ Sighs heavily ]
Audra: That sounds like a threat.
Tucker: Consider it a promise…one I intend to keep.
Audra: You blew it with your son, not me.
Tucker: No, you had one job! One!
Audra: Look, I did my job to a T.
Audra: Devon wasn’t suspicious of me until he realized that we share the same stupid phone alert.
[ Scoffs ]
Tucker: What? What are you talking about?
Audra: I guess he didn’t share that part, okay? But this is why he asked if we were colluding against him. Now, why would he wonder about something that could have so easily been dismissed as a coincidence? Because from the moment that he heard that you showed up in town in that ludicrous helicopter, okay, like the attention-seeking narcissist you are, devon wondered if his dear old dad had an agenda to take over his company. Speaks so well of your personal dynamic. Oh. Have I crossed a line? I’m doing you a favor speaking the truth. You could have reconnected with devon without all the secrets and lies. But whenever you have to choose between honesty and manipulation, you always choose the latter. It makes you feel like the smartest guy in the room. Only this time, your son was smarter.
Tucker: And now he won’t return my calls. And he’s cut me off from my grandson. My relationship with him means more than any company ever could, and yet he won’t give me a chance to explain. I just want to work side by side with him. I don’t want to… I wasn’t trying to rob him of anything. I wanted — I wanted to build something with him. Just like I was trying to do with ashley.
Audra: Did things go south there, as well?
Tucker: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. I guess you could it’s not my day.
Audra: That’s life. Do you want me to cower and beg for forgiveness? Too bad. I am as through with you as you are with me. So that’s not happening.
[ Knock on door ]
[ Sighs ] Nate. Come in.
Nate: Is there a problem here?
Tucker: I was just leaving.
Audra: [ Clears throat ]
Nate: I had no idea you knew tucker mccall. What did I just walk in on? Type 2 diabetes?
Audra: I’m sorry you had to see any of that.
Nate: Look, you have every right to tell me it’s none of my business. But since we’re gonna be working together, I’d appreciate it if you’d explain your association with devon’s father. You never happened to mention meeting him.
Audra: You put your faith in me, bringing me on as your ceo. You deserve total honesty. Tucker was here to berate me. Our plan failed, so naturally it’s my fault.
Nate: What plan would that be?
Audra: I was supposed to help him take over chancellor-winters when it went public.
[ Cellphone ringing ]
Kyle: Hi. What’s going on? This is a surprise. When and where? Sounds good. I’ll see you shortly.
Kyle: I hope you stopped in to get some coffee before you hop in your car and hit the road since leaving town is the best option for you right about now.
Tucker: Heard the news, huh?
Kyle: Eh, you bombed personally and professionally with ashley and devon.
Tucker: Yeah, I guess so. That’s a nice way of putting it.
Kyle: Yeah, you were crazy to ever think you could get your hands on my family’s company and that you would get back together with ashley, but your ego knows no bounds.
Tucker: I actually abandoned any interest I had in jabot a while ago, but I’m not giving up on ashley quite yet.
Kyle: Hmm. Too bad. She’s heading to paris tonight.
Sally: And that’s one of the good things about launching my own company and setting my own hours.
Nick: No alarm clock?
Sally: It is a violent way to wake up.
Nick: I never really thought about it. With kids in the house, there’s no such thing as “sleeping in.”
Sally: Good point. Um, can I ask you a favor?
Nick: Name it.
Sally: Well, since you know jill so well, do you have any tips on how I can impress her?
Nick: Okay. Obviously, you have made a great impression on her, or she wouldn’t meet with you to hear your presentation. First and foremost, don’t try and B.S. Her. She’s way too sharp. She’ll see right through it. And also, don’t try and fake expertise. Be prepared to back up anything you promise. If you don’t know something or you get stumped, then say that, but immediately follow it with, “but I know how to get you the answer.”
Sally: And that’ll satisfy her?
Nick: Jill is one of the most straightforward people you will ever meet. Also, be confident, but not too confident. But just be real.
Sally: Right. Yes. Total realness.
[ Cellphone ringing ]
Nick: Excuse me. Christian’s nanny. He wants to know if he can watch a movie. “Sure, as long as it’s a short one. Then immediately to bed.” Alright. Back to jill.
Nick: I have a feeling your meeting with her is gonna go very well.
Nick: I’m guessing she sees a part of herself in you. She’s very smart and driven and ambitious. She’s worked very hard to prove to anyone who has doubted her that she knows what it takes to be a success. I don’t know if it’s perfectly clear yet or not, but I am a huge fan of yours.
Sally: [ Chuckles ]
Nick: I think you’re beautiful and smart, kind… and unbelievably sexy.
Sally: You know what? I think I changed my mind. I think we should go. ‘Cause I have this sudden, urgent desire to get you alone.
Jeremy: Hey. There you are.
Jeremy: Right on time.
Jeremy: I ordered you a cocktail. Please sit down.
Diane: Ooh, my favorite. Thank you.
Jeremy: My pleasure. So, how is our project going? Don’t leave anything out. You tantalized me earlier. Now it’s time for you to share some details.
Phyllis: [ Thinking ] What the hell are you up to now?

worst nighttime symptoms
Kyle: Sally. Nick.
Nick: Hey, kyle.
Kyle: Have a good night.
Nick: You too.
Kyle: [ Sighs ] Hey, adam.
Adam: [ Sighs ] Something on your mind?
Kyle: Wow. Is that what passes for “hello” these days?
Adam: You know, if it’s all the same to you, I would really like to enjoy my drink in peace.
Kyle: Huh. You know, I think I know what this is about. You’re having trouble dealing with the fact sally chose the superior brother.
Adam: You know, I don’t recall you being a particularly big fan of sally’s, and now you are glad she’s involved with your father-in-law instead of me. Hmm. I doubt summer shares your enthusiasm, so you might want to keep that one to yourself. As usual, you’ve twisted my words around. I was just making an observation.
Victor: Hello, kyle. Glad you could make it.
Kyle: It was nice to get your call.
Victor: Yeah. Hello, son.
Adam: Wait a minute. The two of you are meeting? Why is that?
Victor: Because kyle and i haven’t talked for awhile and i want to know how my granddaughter’s husband is doing, how the family is doing. That’s what we do as family, something evidently you have forgotten.
Adam: Forget I asked. I hope you two have a wonderful evening.
Victor: Shall we get a table over there?
Kyle: Right this way.
Victor: Thank you.
Diane: I thought we agreed I’d surprise you.
Jeremy: Surely you remember how impatient I get when I want something.
Diane: I remember everything about you, jeremy.
Jeremy: You did have me intrigued when you decided to meet today, but given the fact that you were supposed to deliver the goods, whatever they may be, by tomorrow.
Diane: I have time because i have everything perfectly under control.
Jeremy: Okay. That’s good to hear. But you know I detest being left in suspense. So, why don’t you indulge me and give me more information?
Diane: You know, I could be offended by your seeming lack of faith, or I could simply say you’re spoiling the fun, but, okay, I will indulge you. I am headed to chicago tonight.
Diane: Yeah. And by tomorrow, I will present you with an exquisite piece of jewelry, one of a kind, very beloved, very expensive, and very stolen.
[ Laughs ] I’ll check off all the boxes of your request.
Jeremy: So, who are you stealing from?
Diane: Nikki newman.
[ Both laugh ]
Diane: Yes. She, phyllis, and ashley stuck their nose into my past with you in L.A., And then they lured you to genoa city under false claims that I helped put you in prison. They wanted it to suit their own needs, and they used us as puppets. And they thought they could pull the strings. A little payback would be nice.
[ Doorbell rings ]
[ Knock on door ]
[ Bag zips ]
Ashley: You’re wasting your time coming here. I’m leaving for paris soon.
Tucker: Yeah. I realize that I’m the last person you want to see right now, but, um… I’m begging you, if you could just hear me out ’cause I hate the way things ended between us and… just — will you please listen to what I have to say? For copd, ask your doctor about breztri.
“The young and the restless”
Nate: When exactly did you and tucker forge this alliance?
Audra: He and I go back a ways. I worked for one of his companies in london. He paid off my business school loans, and I’ve been beholden to him ever since. Full disclosure — we shared both a business and a personal connection.
Nate: Mm. I see.
Audra: I came to genoa city as his trojan horse into chancellor-winters. Devon figured it out, and that’s why I’m no longer with the company, although devon allowed me to resign quietly so as not to cause any public embarrassment to the company.
Nate: So, when you said you were done with your assignment and were ready to move on from there…
Audra: It was a lie of omission.
Nate: Which is still a lie.
Audra: I was hoping, you know, I had the chance to show you what I can bring to the party as your coo before you learned the whole story.
Nate: Mm. You figured you had a little time, given the distance between my cousins and me.
Audra: I see now how foolish that was. I just wanted so badly to land on my feet and prove my worth.
Nate: At my expense. I hired you without knowing all the facts. That doesn’t make me look good.
Audra: I don’t blame you for being disappointed. But know this. I am thrilled to finally be through with tucker mccall. And I believe my business acumen speaks for itself. I have no doubt you and I can achieve great things together. However, under the circumstances, I’ll understand if you want to rescind your offer of employment at newman media.
Ashley: Say what you have to say. I’ve got a plane to catch.
Tucker: I screwed up. Uh, I played it all wrong. I couldn’t have made more mistakes if I had tried to. But everything I did, every thought I had was in hopes of creating something truly special for you.
Ashley: I didn’t hear an apology. But I guess not getting an apology is better than hearing any more of your empty words.
Tucker: I’m sorry that I hurt you. That’s the last thing I wanted. And, uh, that is not spin. I’m not weaving some story to appease you. I’m trying to show you how, um — how desperately I want your happiness.
Ashley: Is that it?
Tucker: I want you to know that it was never my plan to — to rip jabot away from you or your family.
[ Clears throat ] I just was trying to provide the means for you to, uh, become the star that you are, that I think you are. And I knew that you would never do that at jabot ’cause you’re always under the shadow of your brother and — and your dad. And, uh, that’s why I — that’s why I devised the idea —
Ashley: So, you decided what was best for my life. I don’t even get a say in what goes on in my own life?
Tucker: But I saw the excitement in your eyes, the — the spark…
Tucker: …When I — you were excited by it, as i knew you would be ’cause I know you, ashley.
Ashley: Ah. You really don’t know me at all, do you?
Tucker: There is more going on than you care to admit between us. I know you said, “oh, I’m playing you.” The connection you and I have can’t be faked. At least my feelings for you are real. And they’re profound. If you feel half of what I do for you, don’t we owe ourselves the chance to — to find our way back from this? Will you stay? Please? Give us a chance.
Phyllis: Oh! Thank you for getting here so fast.
Nikki: I got nervous when i saw your text. Is this about diane?
Phyllis: Yeah. She’s back, despite everything she led us to believe.
Nikki: Yeah, I heard. Um, I don’t really even want to know what she’s up to.
Phyllis: Oh, well, I have a few things. Um, one of them is making out with jack. And jack was going right along with it.
Nikki: As much as it pains me to hear that, it is no surprise. I mean, he’s been protecting her through this whole thing. Of course she’s gonna take advantage of that.
Nikki: But trust me. One of these days, he’s gonna realize what’s happened and he will regret it.
Phyllis: She’s completely playing him.
[ Sighs ] And then I just saw her with jeremy stark, looking, way less than terrified of him, let me just say.
Jeremy: Stealing something precious from nikki after she tried to do the same thing to you by forcing you to leave your family. Oh, that’s poetic.
Diane: I thought you’d find it as delicious as I do.
Jeremy: And if you could actually deliver, I’d be really impressed.
Diane: Don’t worry. I will.
Jeremy: How can you be so sure? You’ve raised the bar really high for yourself.
Diane: Well, don’t I always?
Jeremy: Still, there are a lot of logistics involved. An ambitious heist like this would be very difficult to pull off on your own.
Diane: Difficult, but not impossible.
Jeremy: As much as I admire your self-confidence, I would like to hear exactly how you plan to pull this off. Trelegy for copd.
Nate: Your story makes so much sense now. When I betrayed my cousins and everything hit the fan, you barely reacted, which at the time seemed a bit strange. Now I realize that you must have been relieved that the spotlight was on me. It never occurred to my cousins that there was another double agent in their midst.
Audra: Apparently. But trust me, I was not nonchalant. Your confession that you were working with another power player in town intending to make a move on the company came as quite a jolt.
Nate: Tucker realized he had some competition.
Nate: If I had stayed the course with my plan for newman to take over chancellor-winters, it would have ruined tucker’s plan.
Audra: Yeah, or at least forced him to rethink his strategy on the fly, putting him at a serious disadvantage. I mean, if someone’s better than you at playing the game, there’s no one to blame except yourself.
Nate: You really feel that way?
Audra: I have no reason to lie at this point. You play to win, or you’ve already lost.
Nate: Hmm. Agreed. Which is why my offer for you to be my coo still stands.
Ashley: You’re right. This is complicated for me. I started to feel things for you again. I didn’t think it was even possible, but, um… it happened. But, you know, even though I was feeling that pull, you know, whatever that is that you and i have together, I felt it. And my instincts kept telling me that I shouldn’t trust you, and my instincts were dead right.
Tucker: But everything’s out in the open now. So, let’s — let’s —
Ashley: Come on. Stop it. There’s no chance in hell.
Ashley: I have to spell it out for you? You’re a crappy partner, tucker. You were the first time around, and you haven’t changed. You had every opportunity to be honest with me. All you had to do was be straight with me! And you chose not to. Until I saw your son rub your nose in your lies. And I can’t wait to get on that plane so I don’t have to look at you again.
Victor: So, how are things going at marchetti?
Kyle: Oh, very well. We’ve gotten into a groove.
Victor: Oh, yeah. Nice to hear. And how is my beautiful granddaughter and, more importantly, my great grandson?
Kyle: We’re all good.
Victor: Good. Great to hear that.
Kyle: Although I doubt that’s the real reason you wanted to get together. Normally, you would have gone directly to summer or at least invited her to join us.
Victor: Well, what do you think I’m here to discuss?
Kyle: I would assume my mother.
Victor: Hmm. A lot of things to say about your mother. But I shall refrain from doing so right now. Something more important is on my mind.
Kyle: Such as?
Victor: How is adam doing at jabot?
Kyle: [ Sighs ]
[ Lock whirs, disengages ]
Sally: [ Sighs ] Never should have left here in the first place.
Nick: Right? What was I thinking?
Sally: Why don’t I take your coat off?
Sally: But I won’t stop there.
Sally: Mnh-mnh. I’m gonna keep going, piece by piece, until everything that you are wearing is on the floor.
Nick: I like the way your mind works. Dry skin is sensitive skin, too.
Tucker: How long will you be gone?
Ashley: That’s none of your business. But it’s gonna be nice not to have to think about you anymore, just like it was before you came back to town.
Tucker: Whereas I’ll be thinking about you every minute.
Ashley: My car is gonna be here any second. So, if you have any respect for me, like you keep telling me you do, please go. Now.
Diane: I am disappointed in you, jeremy. Don’t you know by now not to underestimate me?
Jeremy: That’s not —
Diane: Remember, I lived in this town for years. I interacted with all the key players. I was even mrs. Victor newman. A couple of times. No one is more of an insider than I am. And even if I weren’t, there are ways of getting one’s hands on information. Come on. Give me a little credit.
Jeremy: Oh, you are as intoxicating as ever right now.
Diane: Now, that’s more like it.
Jeremy: I believe that i could almost trust you.
Diane: By tomorrow, i guarantee you will be 100% sold.
Nikki: Look at diane, cozying up to that criminal.
Phyllis: Mm-hmm. It’s really disgusting how she keeps stringing jack along while she’s sitting there colluding with this guy.
Nikki: We’ve always known she has no shame.
Phyllis: Alright. While ashley’s out of town for a few weeks, what are we gonna do? How are we gonna get rid of diane?
Nikki: [ Sighs ]
Sally: You know, since you liked my first idea so much…
Nick: Oh. Do you have another one?
Sally: Mm-hmm. Once we are out of all of these clothes, why don’t we go warm up in the shower together?
Nick: I love it. I’m in. Let’s go.
Sally: Alright. Why don’t you go turn on the water and I will meet you there in a minute?
Sally: [ Sighs heavily ]
Kyle: Adam seems to be doing alright.
Victor: Okay. Now, I can’t imagine that you’re too happy that he is at jabot, as your father’s co-ceo, no less.
Kyle: Eh, our paths don’t really cross that much.
Victor: So, let’s be frank with each other. Neither you nor I like the fact that he’s working at your family’s company. So, why don’t we remedy that?
Next week on “the young and the restless”…
Daniel: What, did a bomb just go off in here? You guys okay? Everything alright?
Abby: Do you have an update about dissolving the merger?
Devon: Yeah, I do. And it’s not what I saw coming.
Jeremy: I think we need to seal this new partnership… with a kiss.
Diane: [ Exhales sharply ] I never get tired of this.
