Diane: [ Laughs ]

Jack: Hey.

Diane: Ah. [ Sniffles ] That was a really good movie.

[ Sniffles ] God.

Jack: You okay?

Diane: Yeah.

Jack: You’re an emotional softie.

Diane: [ Laughs ]

Jack: Your secret’s safe with me.

Diane: I’m a little surprised at myself. I, uh… I thought I had given up believing in happy endings a long time ago.

Jack: Ah. I think happy endings are overrated. It means the — the end of a story. I think all the fun is in the journey there.

Diane: Mm. I never want this journey with you to end.

Jack: I am so happy, so grateful to get this new beginning with you.

Phyllis: Yeah. Summer? Hello. It’s your mother. Yeah. Your mom. You only have one of those. I gave birth to you in an elevator. An elevator. Call me back. You can’t avoid me forever. Please…call me back.

[ Cellphone thuds ]

[ Sighs ] Mnh. Hey, daniel! I know you made it go to voicemail. I could tell. There was only one and a half rings. So, you’re trying to avoid me, too. Okay, well, I’ll just tell you what I told your sister. Call me back. You can’t avoid me.

[ Voice breaking ] You only have one mom.

Michael: Oh, she —

Lauren: Ohh.

Michael: She’s drunk. The phyllis train is off the rails.

Phyllis: If you don’t call me back, I will hunt you down and i will ambush you.

Michael: We can pretend we didn’t see her.

Lauren: I can’t unsee that.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ]

[ Cellphone thuds ]

Lauren: Okay. We’re going in. Come on.

Michael: Oh, into the fray.

Lauren: Phyllis?

Michael: Hey.

Lauren: [ Chuckling ] Hi.

Phyllis: Look at this. Two people who will not ignore me.

Michael: [ Chuckles ] Well, we thought about it.

Phyllis: You want a drink? Can I buy you one?

Lauren: Oh…

Michael: No. We’re good. Thanks.

Lauren: No. The question is, are you?

Phyllis: I can say with good authority I am not okay.

[ Laughs, sighs ]

Lauren: What’s wrong, honey?

Phyllis: My life is spinning out. I can’t stop it.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Sharon: I’ll be right with you!

Mariah: Oh, that’s okay. Take your time. Nothing life-changing to report.

Sharon: Ahh!

Mariah: Ahh!

Sharon: You’re really here!

Mariah: Yes, I’m here! I’m here!

Sharon: Oh, my gosh!

Mariah: Do you have the “new mom” special?

Sharon: Yeah! Oh, yes, I do. And you have that new mother glow.

Mariah: Is it called exhaustion? Because, yes, I have that.

Sharon: Oh, gosh, those sleepless nights and bleary days. They are wonderful. Tell me everything.

Mariah: Uh, okay. To, uh — to sum it up, the baby is born, motherhood is magical, our daughter is perfect. I mean, her — her chubby little legs and the smell of her head. And every time she smiles, i just die like a thousand times.

Sharon: That’s what having a child is.

Mariah: Meaning it’s everything.

Sharon: Always and forever.

Mariah: I didn’t know it was possible to feel this much happiness. Being a parent is already making me see the world so differently.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

[ Breathes deeply ]

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Keys clacking ]

Nick: Sup?

Sally: Hey, do you have a sec?

Nick: Uh, yeah. Actually, could I just call you back in one minute? I’m just trying to wrap up some work here.

Sally: Um, I’m just really worried. I-I feel like something — something’s off.

Nick: What do you mean?

Sally: Well, I just have this really splitting headache and it won’t go away and — I don’t know — I’m just concerned for the baby.

Nick: Okay. Uh, call the doctor. I’ll be right there.

Sally: Thank you.

[ Inhales sharply ] Hi. Uh, this is sally spectra. I — I need to talk to dr. Chandler. I’m — [ Sighs ] I’m just worried that something might be wrong with my baby. Diabetes can serve up a lot of questions,

Sharon: [ Gasps ] She is stunning.

Mariah: I know.

Sharon: Oh, my gosh. I can already see a lot of personality in her sweet little face.

Mariah: Right? Oh, god, I’ve just been gone a few hours, and I already miss them so, so much. I can’t wait to get back to her and tessa.

Sharon: I know. Oh. Hey! Adam. What can I get you? I’m sorry. I didn’t notice you come in ’cause I was too busy gushing over mariah’s brand-new baby girl.

Adam: I heard. I heard. I — I didn’t want to interrupt. So, congratulations. Having a child — you know, there’s nothing on earth like it.

Sally: Oh. You got here fast.

Nick: How are you feeling? What did the doctor say?

Sally: [ Sighs ] She said that some women are prone to headaches early in their pregnancy. It could be due to a number of factors, like stress, fatigue, sinuses, caffeine withdrawal. Or it could be related to my blood pressure issue.

Nick: Okay. If it’s the blood pressure thing, um, is that a problem?

Sally: I mean, dr. Chandler didn’t seem concerned, which made me a little less worried.

Nick: What did she say to do?

Sally: Well, call her back if I got any more symptoms, but in the meantime, just try and reduce stress, eat well, rest. She did say that I could try and find if there was, like, a food or an odor that was triggering my headaches, which sounds like a fun little experiment.

[ Chuckles ]

Nick: [ Chuckles ] Okay. Um, well, if that’s all it was.

Sally: Wow, you were really worried.

Nick: Yeah. Sally, it’s my job to worry. You better get used to that.

Lauren: You know, let’s get some food and some coffee in you.

Phyllis: No. I don’t want a sandwich and a latte. That’s not gonna fix my problem.

Michael: Mm. Strongly disagree. They have a filet mignon panini here that will fix just about anything. And I’m gonna order you one — and maybe one for myself and you. Hmm!

Lauren: So, hey, what caused you to self-medicate with alcohol?

Phyllis: [ Inhales sharply ] My children. Children [Gasps] Can break your heart.

[ Sighs ]

Lauren: You are not wrong there.

Phyllis: They think that I’m the cause of their problems and that, um, I’m interfering in their life.

Michael: Because you are, aren’t you?

Phyllis: What the hell kind of question is that? “Because you are, aren’t you?” Seriously? All I’m trying to do is help my children.

Lauren: Okay, well, we know you have the best intentions when it comes to daniel and summer.

Phyllis: Yeah, yeah, yeah. That’s it. That’s it. That’s it — the best intentions. That’s all you have to say. And I do. And I’m trying to help my children. And for some reason, they’re turning it around that all their problems in their life are because of me and I am the cause of all their issues. And I am so tired of it.

[ Sighs ] What is that? You just looked at each other. You think I’m to blame, too?

Michael: We didn’t say that.

Lauren: Yeah. We’re here for you.

Phyllis: No, you’re not.

Lauren: Like we always are.

Phyllis: No, you’re not. Blah.

[ Laughs ] Your words are so meaningless to me now. So meaningless. I see you guys with your shifty eyes. “Ohh. Phyllis is wrong. Phyllis is on a tear. There’s something wrong with phyllis.” You know what? I don’t want your “advice.” I don’t want it. The only person that I can rely on is this, this beautiful person right here, this drink. Mm! And myself.

Jack: So, what do we do now?

Diane: Well, not another movie.

[ Both laugh ] But who needs that when I have my very own handsome leading man right here?

Jack: Oh, I like the sound of that.

Diane: Yeah.

Jack: Okay, so, I’ll put on some music, and maybe we could open another bottle of champagne —

Diane: Jack. I don’t want anything but to be here with you, safe in your arms. It’s everything. Type 2 diabetes?

Mariah: When I look at her, i just see pure innocence and — and just endless possibility. She’s got her entire life ahead of her and our life together. And I get to travel through the world with this incredible human being, guiding her and learning from her at the same time.

Adam: Well, she is very lucky to have you and — and tessa.

Mariah: Yeah. We’re lucky to have her. We are so proud to be her parents and just — I can’t believe that the three of us, we’re — we’re a family.

Adam: [ Chuckles ]

[ Cellphone rings ]

Mariah: Oh, um, this is tessa, so I really have to take this.

Sharon: Sure. Go, go.

Mariah: Okay.

Adam: Well, I should probably be going, too.

Sharon: But you didn’t even order any coffee.

Adam: It’s probably kind of late for that thing anyway, but, um, congrats again, sharon.

Sharon: Hey. Wait a minute. What’s going on with you?

Adam: Nothing. I’m — I’m good, you know? I’m adam newman. I’m, uh — I’m a guy without a care in the world.

Sharon: Well, sometimes being adam newman isn’t as easy as it looks. Look, if you don’t want to tell me what’s on your mind, it’s fine with me. I’m just not buying this laissez-faire routine.

Adam: Okay. Um… [ Chuckles ] Sally’s pregnant. And the baby’s mine.

Sharon: Oh.

Adam: I just… sharon, I just dropped a bomb on you, and you don’t have that much of a reaction. You already knew, didn’t you? How could you not tell me that i was gonna be a father?

Sally: [ Sighs ] I just feel kind of silly that my first instinct was to call you over what was probably just a standard-issue headache.

Nick: First, I don’t want you to ever feel silly about calling me about something about your health or the baby’s health. Secondly, you absolutely should have called me.

Sally: I guess I just wanted you to tell me that I was overreacting, like you were, like, my husband or something. That was absolutely not a request.

[ Both laugh ]

Nick: Look, I love it that you thought to call me when you thought something might be wrong. I really want to be that person for you. I just want you to know there isn’t anything I won’t stop doing or drop to come be with you if you need me.

Sally: God, you were in the middle of something when i called. You shouldn’t — you should probably get back to the office.

Nick: Psch. Are you kidding me? Forget work. Let’s sit down. Let’s see if we can figure out the source of your headache by going over what you ate and drank.

Sally: Really? ‘Cause when I said it would be a fun little experiment, I might have been overstating the fun part.

Nick: No way. This is gonna be super fun. Let’s get into it. What’d you have for breakfast?

Sally: Um, two eggs and some toast.

Nick: Okay. Eggs and toast. How about lunch?

Sally: Chicken salad.

Nick: And…?

Sally: Some cashews from the minibar for dinner.

Nick: Are you — cashews, sally?

Sally: Yeah, I know, but the headache made me lose my appetite.

Nick: Are you remembering to take your prenatal vitamins?

Sally: [ Sighs ] I’ve been a little lax about it. I’ve just never really been a vitamin person.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Well, obviously I’m gonna have to stay on top of you. About this situation…

Sally: Mm.

Nick: …So I can keep an eye on you. Obviously, we’re gonna have to spend a lot more time together.

Sally: [ Chuckles ]

Sharon: I did know about sally’s pregnancy, um, but i promised that I wouldn’t tell anyone.

Adam: Sharon, not even the father?

Sharon: Well, it wasn’t my place to tell you. And besides, at the time, she didn’t even know who the father was. It’s not until just now that I’m learning that it’s you.

Adam: So, when did nick tell you that she was pregnant?

Sally: Oh, it wasn’t nick that told me. It was sally.

Adam: What? I… I didn’t think you two were exactly close.

Sharon: Oh, we’re not. I think because she’s a first-time mother and the situation is a little bit confusing and she just needed some guidance.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, I think we’re all gonna need, uh, a lot more guidance by the time this baby’s born. I love my hardwood floors.

Adam: Well, part of me was, um, holding out hope that we would find our way back to each other, but now that nick has stepped up, even though the baby’s mine, it’s not gonna happen. You know, he really is mr. Wonderful. And I’m out in the cold.

Sharon: Well, I’m sorry. I know how difficult it must be for you to sit back and watch nick with sally. But she did tell you the truth. So, that couldn’t have been easy for her, either.

Adam: Yeah, uh…I wouldn’t want to have that conversation with me. I’m just still pretty stunned by it all. You know, I’m having a — I’m having another baby.

Sharon: You are going to be a great dad to this kid, just as good as you are to connor.

Adam: Well, I appreciate you saying that, sharon, but having nick in the mix, it’s gonna make things a lot trickier.

[ Sighs ]

Lauren: You know, going on a tear is hungry business. Come on. Eat something. Make you feel better.

Michael: And maybe soak up some of the booze.

[ Plate clatters ]

Phyllis: I don’t want to stuff a sandwich down my throat.

Lauren: You know we love you and we’re here for you. Aren’t we?

Michael: Phyllis, listen to me. You are family. What can we do to help?

Phyllis: We’re not family. Go ahead and say it to me. You want to say “I told you so.” That’s what you want to say.

Lauren: No, we don’T.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ]

Lauren: Although we did warn you about interfering in daniel’s life behind his back.

Phyllis: You two are supposed to be my friends. Do you know what that means? Friends? Hmm? And you. How can you be diane’s friend and be my friend? How can you do that to me?

[ Gasping ]

[ Voice breaking ] You welcomed that bitch back into town after she faked her death with open arms! How could you do that to me? You allowed that virus to come into town and latch on to my daughter like a host organism. You allowed the infection to come into town.

Michael: Diane is not the root of all your problems!

Phyllis: Shh! Oh, my god, she is. Oh, my god, she is. I wish she’d died. I wish she’d died. I want her dead.

Lauren: Phyllis —

Phyllis: You can only die once, right? It is not too late. I want that bitch dead now.

Diane: This feels so right. I don’t ever want to move.

Jack: We could stay here indefinitely.

Diane: [ Chuckles ]

Jack: We could move here. The view is spectacular.

Diane: Mm.

Jack: But it’s not the only view I like.

Diane: Don’t you think we’d get a little antsy after a couple of months?

Jack: I’ll tell you what. We could travel from one romantic place to the next, an endless adventure around the world.

Diane: [ Chuckles ] Now, that I can picture.

[ Sighs ] But as tempting as it sounds to leave the jeremy stark problem behind, we both have too much waiting for us at home. You could never leave your family or jabot, and I don’t ever want to be apart from kyle again.

Jack: Of course you are right.

Diane: [ Laughs ]

Jack: Nothing wrong with a little fantasy, but reality is pretty great, too. I promise I will do everything i can to make it as special as it can be for you…for us.

Sally: I’m really sorry for worrying you. I probably just overreacted to something that in the end was probably nothing.

Nick: Come on. You reacted quickly to a potential crisis because you’re worried about that perfect little baby inside of you. That’s what mothers do. I think you’re gonna be an amazing mother, sally.

Sally: Thank you.

[ Knock on door ]

Adam: Sally, it’s me.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Did you call him, too?

Sally: No.

Nick: I guess him showing up unannounced is gonna be a regular thing.

Sally: Ugh, I hope not. But I — I can’t not answer it.

Nick: Yeah.

Sally: [ Sighs ] Hi. What are you doing here? Want luxury hair repair that doesn’t cost $50?

“The young and the restless”

will continue. Mr. Clean magic eraser powers

[ Door closes ]

Adam: Um, I — I was just thinking about you, and I — I wanted to check in.

Sally: I mean, everything’s fine now.

Adam: Now? I mean, was — was there a problem? I mean, is — is that why nick’s here? Is everything okay with you and the baby?

Sally: Yeah. I-I just had a pretty bad headache, and I called the doctor, but it’s — it’s gone now. There’s nothing for you to worry about.

Nick: It’s all good.

Sally: Look, you shouldn’t feel the need to check in. I mean, there’s really nothing i need from you before the baby’s born.

Mariah: So, I noticed you and adam were talking while I was on the phone. It looked intense.

Sharon: Yeah, well, when is something not up with adam?

Mariah: That was purposefully vague.

Sharon: Every single detail about the baby takes precedence here. What did tessa say?

Mariah: Just that she was singing our little sugar plum to sleep.

Sharon: Aww.

Mariah: We will be forever grateful that delphine made us moms.

Sharon: So will I. I’m already so proud of the mother you’ve become.

Mariah: Well, I’m not sure that I can ever live up to you, but I will certainly try.

Sharon: Hey, I haven’t asked you the biggest question yet. Have you come up with a name?

Diane: I wish there was an easy way to deal with jeremy and his threats. I mean, I suppose that stealing something else from victor and nikki’s pied–terre in chicago is out of the question.

Jack: I still stand by that choice. It worked, if only temporarily.

[ Thudding ]

Diane: [ Gasps ] What was that?

[ Exhales sharply ]

Jack: Hey.

Diane: No. What if it’s him and — and — and he’s going to find us?

Jack: There’s no way he could possibly know we are here.

Diane: Jack. No, don’t open it.

Jack: It’s okay.

Diane: [ Exhales sharply ]

Jack: A tree branch fell.

Diane: Really?

Jack: Yeah. Come see for yourself.

Diane: [ Exhales sharply ]

Jack: Everything’s okay. We are safe.

Phyllis: Hmm. I wonder where diane’s tombstone is. I should find it and put it to good use.

Lauren: For heaven’s sake, phyllis.

Michael: Making death threats in the middle of a hotel lobby is such a bad idea.

Phyllis: It’s not my hotel anymore, so — pbht. You know, it’s the first amendment. Michael, it’s the constitution. I can do what I want.

Michael: Except when you’re yelling murder or fire.

Lauren: This isn’t helping anyone.

Phyllis: Wow.

Lauren: Just stop it.

Phyllis: Oh, stop, please, you two. Enough. Enough. I’m done with the tough love. You’re either with me or you’re against me.

Michael: Well, we’re not against you.

Phyllis: Yeah, sure. Well, I’m done with tough love, and I am done with you. Okay?

Lauren: Phyllis, hold on.

Phyllis: I am suffocating. Let me go.

Lauren: Go — go after her.

Michael: Phyllis. Phyllis! Phyllis! She found it.

Mariah: We have not found the perfect name yet.

Sharon: Well, I can’t keep calling her “the baby.”

Mariah: I know. I know. Trust me — we’re gonna figure it out soon.

Sharon: Can you at least tell me what names are in the running?

Mariah: I could, but do you really want to talk about it?

Sharon: Of course. Why wouldn’t I?

Sharon: I just didn’t know if you would have any sensitivity, considering…

Sharon: Oh. Wait. You mean because I didn’t get to name you?

Mariah: Yeah. I didn’t want to bring up any bad memories.

Sharon: You know, I didn’t get to raise you, but we did find each other again. And you turned out to be a remarkable woman with a beautiful name that fits her beautiful soul.

Mariah: And, see, that’s exactly what we’re trying to do. We’re trying to find the perfect name that matches our little girl’s essence.

Sharon: When you hear it, you’ll know it.

Jack: I hate to see you on edge like this.

Diane: I’m just so mad at myself for letting jeremy get to me again. You know, I refuse to be that man’s victim, but I promise you that somehow, some way, I am going to get him out of our lives. I’m just — I’m just frustrated that our last plan didn’t work.

Jack: Well, that wasn’t your fault.

Diane: No. But I don’t want you or anyone else to take that kind of risk again, like you did last time. Your days of committing larceny are over. But I’m afraid that it’s going to take something extreme like that to get rid of him. And I don’t know — I don’t know what that something is, but whatever it is, I’m going to be the one who takes the risk. I brought him into our lives, and I will drive him out.

Jack: I love to see that fire in your eyes. I love your devotion to us. But I’m starting to think maybe going on the offensive with stark is not the right solution.

Diane: Well, maybe the problem was we didn’t frame him for a big enough crime.

Jack: I disagree. No, I think maybe the opposite approach is the right way to go.

Nick: I will take care of everything sally needs until the baby arrives.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Look, I-I get that you’re together, and I know that you’re gonna be around. I’m not fighting that. And I will try to resist the urge to spontaneously check in. But, um, I would really like to come to some of your doctor’s appointments or ultrasounds.

Sally: Um, yeah. I’ll think about it.

Adam: Well, uh, I won’t overstay my welcome. I’m glad everything’s okay.

Sally: That was tense. I know adam’s trying to deal with this the best way he can, but it’s gonna be tough for him. And I know that you’re not overly sensitive to his feelings, but they’re gonna affect all of us.

Nick: We’re all in this together. I don’t like it, but it is what it is. I’ve had time to accept that I’m not the father of this baby. So I sympathize with him a bit more.

Sally: Yeah, well, the calmer things are, the better it is going to be for all of us.

Nick: I will do everything i can to keep things that way, sally, but when adam’s involved, you never know what to expect. You got to be careful. If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Sally: I mean, look, adam and I have had our fair share of drama, but with the baby involved, I don’t think he’d pull anything. I mean, what is it that you think I need to be careful about?

Nick: I know you have a soft spot for my brother, and i completely respect what the two of you had together. I know he’s in a tough spot. For him to ask to be involved in some of the doctor appointments is completely justified.

Sally: Yeah. I mean, we’re in agreement. So, what’s the problem?

Nick: I know you think you’re doing the right thing by letting him get involved in the pregnancy, but at the same time, you could just be inviting trouble.

Sally: In what way?

Nick: It doesn’t matter what his motives are. The more involved he is, the harder it’s gonna be for him to let go.

Sharon: Wow. No amount of swagger can cover up the way you’re feeling right now. The whole world can see it. You want to talk?

Adam: Sharon, I am… I’m trying to be a good guy here. I’m trying to handle the situation with sally and the baby with class, poise, and grace, but —

Sharon: But you’re still adam newman.

Adam: I don’t know if I can.

Diane: What are you thinking?

Jack: I am merely proposing that we pretend that man does not exist.

Diane: How can we do that? He’s sending packages to the house.

Jack: We don’t open them. When we see him in town, we walk the other way. We don’t talk about him, let him live in our heads. We take away his power by not giving him power in the first place.

Diane: So just a change of attitude?

Jack: Look, I promise we will stay safe and protected.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Jack: But we will let our security team and the authorities worry about jeremy stark. In the meantime, we live our lives to the fullest, enjoy every single moment. That man cannot intimidate us if we don’t allow him to.

Diane: Well, it — it sounds good in theory, but he’S…

[ Sighs ]

Jack: We have just been saying how special life is, how everything is falling so perfectly into place. We are happy. The kids are good. Our grandson is joy personified. You were right. We can’t just leave genoa city. We have far too much to lose. So, why are we wasting one more second on jeremy stark? We’ve waited all this time to find each other again. Every moment is precious.

Diane: I feel that way, too, but —

Jack: No. No — no — no “buts.” Having you back in my life again has given me energy and optimism and purpose and happiness I — I thought I had lost forever. I will be damned if jeremy stark or anyone else takes that from us. I love you too much.

Diane: God. Jack, I… I love you, too. It’s — it’s almost — almost overpowering, like this love that’s been pent up and it’s finally able to be free.

[ Laughs ]

Jack: I have another idea. Marry me.

Lauren: Phyllis is spiraling out of control. I haven’t seen her like this in a long time. And it really scares me.

Michael: I was trying to keep it light earlier. I’m really worried about her. She can’t seem to get out of her own way. She’s not thinking clearly.

[ Sighs ] The good thing is, you can usually rely on her to right the ship.

Lauren: But how many times can she go down this dark path and — and actually come back?

Michael: Huh. I don’t know. One thing that always holds true about her, though, is she’s a survivor.

Jeremy: You’re lucky to be alive.

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

Victoria: Did tucker approach you about buying the company and taking control?

Devon: Why do you care?

Sally: There is actually something that you should know. It’s probably best you hear it from me. I am pregnant.

Jeremy: I can tell by that look in your eye you’re intrigued.

Phyllis: I can’T. I’d lose everything.

Jeremy: It seems to me you already have.
