Young & The Restless Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Summer: Good, you’re here already. My mom texted me. She said that she saw you.
Michael: Yes, um, you want some breakfast? My treat.
[ Summer sighing ]
Summer: No, thank you. I just want to hear about my mom, I mean, what happened? Where is she? What is she going to do?
Michael: Uh, if you don’t mind, I’m going to take those one at a time. Um, as to what happened, I was expecting lauren for a romantic rendezvous and, uh, phyllis knocked on the door instead.
Summer: How did she look? Is she okay?
Michael: She’s stressed. She’s tired from being on the run. She’s very concerned about you.
Summer: Okay, but what– what happened? What did– what did she say?
Michael: We had a very productive talk about her options. She ate all the chocolate covered strawberries and then she left.
Summer: That’s it? She didn’t say where she’s been hiding or where we could find her?
Michael: I’m sorry, she did not.
Summer: But in her text, she said that she might have found a way out of this mess. I mean, is that true? Could she come home soon?
[ Knocking on door ]
Sharon: Who’s there?
Nick: It’s nick. Morning.
Sharon: New job, delivery man?
Nick: Oh, yeah, nick’s courier service. On time or we keep it.
[ Sharon laughing ]
Sharon: Like it. How’s your first day on leave?
Nick: Not great, not loving it, but what choice do I have?
Sharon: Well, you want some coffee? Although, you seem a little amped up already.
Nick: Yeah, I’m just trying to figure out what I’m gonna do with the rest of my day. You know, I can deliver you this, which was left for you at the gate.
Sharon: Um, I’m sure that’s just my shampoo, you should set it right there. Actually, I do need some help this morning with this. I just don’t have the skills, and you were always so good at this.
Nick: Happy to be of service.
[ Sharon chuckling ] All right.
Jack: You’re thinking what I am? That what happened yesterday should never have happened? Ultomiris is for adults with generalized myasthenia gravis
Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by… with a smooth clean shave,
Nick: Thank you.
Nick: You know, I always did love that necklace.
Sharon: Well, you gave it to me a million years ago.
Nick: Well, I have excellent taste.
Sharon: You do. You know, you didn’t have to come here and check on me. Which I know is the reason why you’re here. I’m fine. Just like I was last night when we spoke on the phone.
Nick: Well, you did that thing where you politely blow me off because you don’t want me to worry about you, so I figured the best thing I can do is just crash your place and eyeball you and see how you’re doing. So, how are you?
Sharon: Um, it’s a little intense sometimes. Little noises or flashes of light just send me right back into the nightmare.
[ Sharon sighing ] Cameron kidnapped faith. He wanted to kill us. And then I remember to breathe and relax and everything’s okay. We’re okay, it’s over. Have you talked to faith?
Nick: Yeah, she was my first phone call this morning. Uh, she sounds good, you know? She’s happy to be back with her friends. She sounds strong. Wish my other daughter was just as great. I–
Sharon: What’s going on with summer?
Nick: Have you heard that phyllis is alive and on the run?
Sharon: Yes, I have heard that.
Nick: Well, not surprisingly, she has dragged summer into her drama and now it’s blowing up her marriage.
Sharon: Phyllis is a firestorm. Anybody who tries to stop her or tries to help her ends up getting burned, and far too often it is someone she loves. But I’m glad that summer has you.
Nick: Yeah, I have lots of time to worry about her and sally and you and faith now.
Sharon: So, this leave of absence?
Nick: All victoria. I told her it wasn’t necessary, but she insisted.
Sharon: For how long?
Nick: Seems indefinite.
Sharon: Okay, well, being that it’s your sister, I have to assume that she’s just concerned about you and everything that you’ve been dealing with.
Nick: I have a feeling her concern isn’t very sisterly.
Sharon: Well, you can always come back to work at the coffee house.
[ Both laughing ] No one was ever as good as you are at refilling those sugar dispensers.
Nick: Oh, that is a tempting offer.
Sharon: And I’ll throw in all the free coffee you can drink.
Sharon: You know what? I have to get to work.
[ Sharon grunting ]
Sharon: Hey. This isn’t my shampoo. This is from an out-of-state law firm. That doesn’t sound good.
Kyle: Which part shouldn’t have happened?
Jack: The division of this family. Traci had to stage an intervention to stop immediate warfare. I don’t know how successful she was. I think at best we have a temporary detente.
Kyle: Well, détentes are overrated.
Jack: Kyle, I understand your pain. That phyllis would use her daughter to help her out of this mess of her own making. That she would force summer to choose between her husband and her mother. It’s just more damage to this family courtesy of that woman and her hatred.
Kyle: Summer was no victim. She was right in step with her mother. She chose phyllis over and over. Saw my mother get charged with murder, saw us in pain, still, she did nothing.
Jack: Summer made a mistake.
Kyle: It wasn’t that long ago that she was furious at me because I lied to her about working with victor to get adam out of jabot.
Jack: Yeah, that I remember quite well.
Kyle: She was furious. I lied. She could barely get past the fact that I have violated our trust, and I own that mistake, but now she has done exactly the same thing, lying on top of lying. See, this time, it wasn’t about a job at a company. It was about my mother’s life. Her entire future.
Jack: And she wants to make amends now.
Kyle: How? She let me believe she was grieving her mother. Let my mom face the possibility of life in prison. Let me tie myself in knots trying to support my mother. I was desperate to help summer. Desperate. And she shut me out. Disregarded my love, disregarded my feelings for her and my mother.
Jack: There’s no doubt about it, she was wrong, but are you so hurt that you won’t get past what has happened?
Kyle: It is not about hurt. I don’t know who she is anymore. Or maybe I’m just finally seeing she really is her mother’s daughter. Summer did whatever she needed to get what she wanted. Knowing she’s capable of that and so easily, I don’t see how I can trust her again.
Jack: But don’t you think that’s a little harsh?
Kyle: Summer and i are separating dad. I told her to move out.
Michael: Your mother’s future is still pretty much up in the air. And more than a lot of it depends on phyllis.
Summer: You’re gonna help her, right?
Michael: Of course I will. I’m committed to bringing phyllis back. She has that special type of mayhem we all need in our life. But your mother is a stubborn woman. Even with the odds against her, she insists that things play out on her terms. And that is just something I can’t promise.
Summer: And that’s why she didn’t stick around?
Michael: It’s not like I didn’t try. I begged her to turn herself in. I ran up and down the list of reasons why it’d be the least stupid thing she could do. I told her we love her, we miss her. We’re ready to fight for her.
Summer: And she still refused.
Michael: She’s afraid. Christine is at the end of all this. Phyllis is convinced that christine will hit her with every charge in the book and even a few extra just for kicks. The only commitment I could get from your mom is that she would think about it and examine her options.
Summer: Even if there are legal consequences, I mean, it’s got to be better than all of this craziness. The uncertainty.
Michael: I would like this all to be over so I could see you smile again.
Summer: As much as I love my mom and I want her to come home… I– I– I still can’t believe that she did this to us. To me, I mean, even if we figure out all of her problems, there’s still going to be collateral damage.
Michael: What, uh, specific collateral damage are we talking about?
Summer: I might need a lawyer myself. (Wheezing)
Sharon: “Dear miss newman, this letter is to inform you that I represent the estate of cameron kirsten. Per his instructions, I’ve been authorized to forward you the items included in this box in the event of his death.”
Jack: You and summer are separating? I am so sorry it has come to that.
Kyle: I don’t see any other way.
Jack: When we saw you last night, you said you realized that staying away wasn’t going to fix anything. I assumed, I hoped, that that was leading toward healing.
Kyle: There was no hope in that decision. It was resignation. Why put off the inevitable?
Jack: Kyle, is this really what you want? You’re ready to give up on your marriage?
Kyle: Summer chose to do that when she decided to betray everything I thought we had and– and so damn easily. Who knows? Maybe if she hadn’t gotten caught, she would still be lying to me.
Jack: Oh, you’re in pain. And it’s deep and there are no easy remedies, but I’m sure you’re also aware there has been a lot of forgiveness in this house recently for crimes far more serious than summer’S.
Kyle: I guess I’m not as forgiving as you are.
Jack: I don’t believe that. I believe you are forgiving. You forgave your mother. I did too.
Kyle: Not the same. When I see summer, I see someone who didn’t love me enough to be honest. She took me and everything we had for granted. She blew all of our trust to hell. How do you love without that? How is there ever any coming back from what she’s done?
Michael: I would never turn you away if you needed help, summer, but I’m not sure why you would need legal representation.
Summer: Uh, I haven’t been completely upfront with you.
[ Summer sighing ] My morning was going so well. What did you do?
Summer: Mom reached out to me first, not daniel.
Summer: And he covered for me. And I was keeping her– her secret, unlike him. And when I found out that he was telling everyone, I was furious. So, when she revealed where she was hiding…
Michael: You said nothing.
Summer: Yeah. I brought her food and clothes. I tried to help her figure everything out and I don’t know how many laws I broke. I mean, aiding and abetting a fugitive, obstruction of justice. Uh, how much time can you get for them?
Michael: All right, all right you’re getting ahead of yourself.
Summer: Am I? Because chance told me that christine was just waiting to find my mom before she brought charges against me, so it kind of seems like it’s going to happen.
Michael: You spoke to chance about possible charges against you?
Summer: As a friend.
Michael: Uh, when your mother is on the run for serious crimes and you’ve aided and abetted her. Never, ever, ever talk to policemen as a friend. Can– can we agree on that before moving forward?
Michael: Is there any more of that collateral damage you mentioned?
Summer: Uh, my husband hates me.
Michael: Kyle could never hate you. He loves you.
Summer: I was protecting my mom while his mom sat in prison. I mean, I– I lied to him for weeks. And I hated it so much. Even when I wasn’t lying, I was pushing him away and now, he can’t even look at me so… I might also need a divorce attorney.
Michael: No. It’s too soon. You’re young, you’re in love, you have a child. Kyle will come around.
Summer: Michael, he already said that he wants a separation. He asked me to move out. Does it sound like he’s getting ready to forgive me?
Michael: Look, you just have to give kyle some time. You know, this has been rough for everybody.
Audra: If you’re thinking about making, you know, a smooth escape, look, I get it. No pressure from my end.
Kyle: I don’t wanna go home.
Audra: Excuse me?
The long-lasting scent
of gain flings
Audra: I’m sorry about the intrusion. I’m–
Summer: Audra charles. Yes, she was the one that broke noah’s heart a while ago.
Audra: But luckily, we both moved on. I hope he and allie are very happy back in london. And you are michael baldwin. Quite a phenom in this town. Attorney extraordinaire.
[ Michael laughing ]
Michael: It depends on who you talk to. But I also know of you from my dealings with newman enterprises. Victor’s acquisition of mccall unlimited.
Audra: That’s right. Small world.
Summer: I haven’t seen you since, um, the gala.
Audra: That’s right. It was such a terrible night. You know, I was there when your mother collapsed. To later learn that she died. Look, I can’t imagine the grief that you were going through, but how wonderful that she’s actually alive. Apparently somewhere. You must feel like you’re on a roller coaster. You know, but thank god you have your husband and his family to support you.
Summer: Is there something that you want?
Jack: Kyle, I know you’re angry and you have every right to be, but I honestly believe that your love for summer is much stronger than what you’re feeling right now. Listen, kyle, I know this from experience. Anger is a very potent emotion. It can blind you. It can fuel you to make decisions you’ll come to regret. All I’m suggesting is that you not act this second. Just give it some time for the anger to dissipate, and you can reevaluate.
Kyle: I have thought this through, dad. This decision is not based off of emotion. It is based off of fact.
Jack: The reality is this is a–
Kyle: Oh, no, no, no. The reality is my wife has proven she will always, always side with her mother against mine and me. That is a fact. And phyllis will be back in our lives soon. Whispering into summer’s ear, also a fact. So tell me, dad. How does my already broken marriage survive that chaos?
Sharon: This cannot be happening. This is just like before. Random packages being delivered here, at the coffee house just to freak me out.
Nick: We’re not playing cameron’s games anymore. Sharon, he’s dead. Let’s get rid of it. I’ll throw it out right now. We can burn it if you want.
Sharon: Wait, no. We should go through it first.
Nick: Why? It’s just gonna drag up memories that we’re trying to forget.
Sharon: Believe me, no one is more creeped out by this than me. But, no matter what is in that box, cameron can’t hurt us anymore.
If you, like many people,
Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.
Nick: Seems like cameron was into journaling all his teenage angst. Uh, here’s a good one. “I’m going to be somebody, not like these losers. I’m going to be rich. Super rich. So rich no one can stop me and I’m going to marry the most beautiful woman in the world. Leave all these suckers behind.” I mean, the kid had goals.
Sharon: Let’s see what’s in here. Hmm. Frankie.
Sharon: Oh, and this must be…
Nick: The dog’s ashes.
[ Clicks tongue ] Wow. I never pegged cameron to be a dog lover.
Sharon: Yeah. Me neither. Wow. So much for the family photo with his parents.
Nick: With faces ripped out. Guessing they were pretty close.
Sharon: And there’s frankie, I think.
Nick: Yeah. Something else in here what’s this? What do you think this is doing in here?
Sharon: It’s clearly paperwork for cameron’s company, kirsten incorporated. Oh, my gosh. Cameron’s entire business has been signed over to me.
Jack: Kyle, there are no easy answers.
Kyle: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let me spell it out for you. Phyllis will swoop back into town. Michael will do his thing. She will face minimal charges and go back to upending everyone’s life because that’s who she is. She will not be repentant. She will still hate my mother and she has a tidal pull on summer. I refuse to be a part of that circus, and I will not let my son be a part of it as well.
Jack: Yeah, I’ve been concerned about how this all affects harrison, too. There’s been too much anger and upset in this house for too long.
Kyle: Yeah, and too much has been generated by my wife. Dad, I– I remember. I remember, right there, when I approached summer about telling harrison that phyllis had died and she refused. She came up with all kinds of excuses and I felt sorry for her. What an idiot I was. Of course she knew phyllis was alive. Dad, and she was willing to put harrison right in the middle of her damn drama.
Jack: For what it’s worth, kyle, I honestly think summer is remorseful
Kyle: Please, the tears. The desperation to talk, to apologize, and she’s suddenly all about our great love. As if she didn’t treat me like the enemy for weeks! Blame me for not giving her the space she needed! All so she could keep phyllis’s dirty little secret. Oh, the entire time, the entire time I was trying to help her. Be there for her. Comfort her. She was sacrificing my mother to protect hers.
Jack: And diane has forgiven summer.
Kyle: How forgiving do you think mom will be towards phyllis? No matter how resigned she seems about doing nothing and letting phyllis’s karma come back and bite her? When those two come face to face again, all bets are off. Yeah, dad, look at what she just pulled with me. Lying about harrison? If she’s willing to play me like that, how far is she willing to go to make phyllis pay for trying to destroy her life? You cannot tell me you’re not a little worried about that.
Jack: I will allow that that could become an issue.
Kyle: Oh, it is already a giant issue, dad. As much as traci wants peace in this house, I see nothing but trouble ahead, especially for me and summer. I will do everything I can to protect my son. That is why my mind is made up. That is why summer and i are separating.
Audra: I apologize again for the interruption. I just wanted to offer my condolences if your mother really is gone.
Audra it was nice to see you again. And nice to officially meet you.
Michael: Same here.
[ Michael laughing ] Something tells me that that one is a real piece of work.
Summer: You wouldn’t be wrong. Is it just me, or when it comes to my mom, does everyone in this town want information or have an opinion?
Michael: Well, the phyllis trauma has sparked morbid curiosity from more than a few corners.
Summer: The worst part about it is whether she decides to come home or stay away, it’s just gonna get worse. When migraine strikes, you’re faced with a choice.
Nick: Cameron left you his company? This cannot be legit. It’s got to be another one of his crazy games.
Sharon: Well, nothing he does surprises me. Check the date, it’s from last year.
Nick: Which means he put all this in motion just in case his plan failed or he died. It’s an amazing way to keep toying with you from beyond the grave.
Sharon: Yeah, well, in some twisted way, I guess it makes sense, but it looks like it’s real. His attorney wants me to contact him to finalize transfer of ownership.
Nick: Well, if it’s bogus, it’ll be easy to figure out, but it does sort of prove his sick devotion to you. He always said that you were the love of his life. What better way to stay united with you even after his death than to leave you with this company?
[ Sharon sighing ]
Sharon: As if I would want anything from that horrible man, dead or alive. It’s like taking blood money.
Nick: I’m with you on that. Plus, he was in and out of prison for years. I mean, this company’s got to be in ruins.
Sharon: I don’t care if it’s worth a fortune. I am done with cameron and his manipulations. As far as I’m concerned, this is garbage.
Mariah: Hey, sunshine. I take that back. Maybe the forecast is cloudy with a bit of summer being a bitch?
Kyle: Turns out you were right.
Mariah: God, I really do love to hear that, but you look so miserable. It’s making me feel sorry about that. What’s going on?
Kyle: I’d rather talk about you.
Mariah: Uh, coffee and pastries for tessa, aria is next level cute. That’s me. Now back to you. Talk to me.
Kyle: All right. After I saw you, I took chance to a room at the athletic club where phyllis was hiding out, and of course, summer warned her and she was long gone.
Mariah: Do you have any idea where she is?
Kyle: Nope. But summer is consumed with the idea of bringing her mother back to as few charges as possible.
Mariah: Of course she is. ‘Cause all mommy did was fake her own death, try to destroy your mom’s life and kill a man, so there’s nothing to see here.
Kyle: And as obsessed as summer is with getting her mother to come back home, she’s just as focused on smoothing things over with me. She lied to my face for weeks and now she can’t stop saying how sorry she is.
Mariah: Is she actually sorry or is she just sorry she got caught?
Kyle: No, exactly. I mean, she goes on and on about how much she loves me and how special our marriage is, as if things could ever go back to the way they were.
Mariah: I’m sorry. What? Look, regardless of what I think about summer, you guys built a life together, a family.
Kyle: And she blew it up. I mean the lies and– and the manipulation I mean, my dad, he keeps talking about forgiveness, even my mom, but… I see now what you saw all along. Summer is going to summer. This wasn’t an isolated incident. This is who she is. And how can I ever trust again that she will put our marriage first, and our son? And there is zero doubt that phyllis is coming back into our lives, so I refuse to raise harrison in the toxicity that phyllis and summer call love.
Mariah: Man, I thought being right would feel…. a lot better than this.
Kyle: Thanks for letting me vent. And, oh, yeah, would you believe that summer went to my mom? I mean, the woman she was willing to let spend years behind bars, the woman she can’t stand, and asked her to intervene. I mean, how crazy is that?
Mariah: [ Clicks tongue ] Um, maybe not as crazy as you think. Summer… she came to me too.
Kyle: You’re kidding me?
Mariah: Consorting with the enemy. She must be desperate, right?
Kyle: What did you tell her?
Mariah: I told her that she’s not good enough for you. Never was.
Kyle: All that tact. That’s what I love about you.
Mariah: Hey, I’m just speaking my truth.
[ Kyle sighing ] Look… as screwed up as summer is and as screwed up as this whole situation is… I think she loves you. Badly and– and selfishly and in horrible, broken ways. But she definitely still loves you. And I think under the broken pieces of your heart… you might still love her, too.
Kyle: Love has nothing to do with this. It’s about trust, and summer took a sledgehammer to it. That’s why I want a separation. I told summer to move out.
Jack: Hi, summer.
Summer: I guess that kyle’s told you everything.
Jack: I am so sorry.
Summer: I didn’t mean for any of this to happen.
Jack: I know that.
Summer: [ Sighing ] I’ve made such a mess of things.
Jack: Hey, come here.
[ Summer sobbing ]
Summer: I’m sorry. I’m sorry for everything.
Jack: You were put in a very difficult situation.
Summer: No, I can’t make any excuses. Everything I did, it was my choice. I could have gotten the murder charges against diane dropped a lot sooner. I mean, you– you must hate me, too.
Jack: No. No, I could never hate you. In part because I know, for better or worse, you will always protect the mother who was your world.
Summer: Even when she’s turning it upside down.
[ Scoffing ] I… I’ve tried to explain everything to kyle. I’ve tried to… apologize, but it just feels like everything I do is pushing him further away. I guess I deserve that, right? I mean, he just… was trying to love me and I– I betrayed him. I betrayed everything that he thought that our marriage was.
Jack: Kyle is deeply hurt right now.
Summer: I love him. Even as I was screwing everything up, I never stopped loving him. And now he just– he doesn’t want to hear it. I don’t want this. I don’t want a separation. I don’t want to leave his house, harrison, our family. I don’t know what to do, jack. How– how do I convince kyle to forgive me?
Jack: I’m going to tell you what I told my family yesterday. There’s no forcing forgiveness. Kyle wants a separation so that he can process what has happened, so he can cool down. Maybe that would be good for both of you.
Summer: Then why does it feel so final? Needles.
[ Sharon sighing ]
Sharon: Enough of cameron. What’s the rest of your day looking like? Are you going to see how sally’s doing?
Nick: I’m not sure she’s up for a visit after we spoke earlier, but I’m definitely going to stop by.
Sharon: I’m sure she could use all the support she can get.
Nick: Not that she’d admit it. She’s really struggling.
Sharon: So was adam. I wish they could share the loss of the baby together, share the love they had for that little girl. I just think it would go a long way in helping them heal.
Nick: Yeah, I don’t know. Sally blames adam 100%.
Sharon: And adam’s mad at himself and the world.
Nick: We both know how adam gets when he gets mad at himself, he tends to shine that onto the nearest target.
Sharon: Have you seen him?
Nick: Yeah, I saw him last night. Things got a little tense. I warned him that he needed to stay away from sally and just give her some time and space. Not that he listened the first time.
Sharon: He still loves her so much.
Nick: Yeah, but losing the baby? It was the only connection they had. Sally moved on a long time ago. But it doesn’t matter. Adam is going to do whatever he wants. Some people just don’t know how to fade into the woodwork.
Jack: You know that I adore you. I have since the moment I held you in my hands in that elevator when you announced to the world you were very much alive.
[ Summer chuckling ] That hasn’t changed. But I love my son very much and I am going to support whatever decision he makes.
Summer: I– I wouldn’t expect anything else.
[ Summer sighing ] I’ve ruined everything. And it’s not just our family that I’ve messed up.
Jack: Wait, I don’t understand what that means.
Summer: I mean, what’s going to happen to marchetti? Kyle and I can barely be in the same room. How are we gonna work together?
Jack: It’s not going to be easy. Personal differences have to take a back seat to what’s best for the company. That said, you are the driving creative force behind marchetti’s success. You are the brand. So if you and kyle can’t find a way to work together… I think kyle’s gonna have to be the one to step away.
Mariah: Separation. How did summer react?
Kyle: How do you think? She threw it back at me. Pretty much accused me of throwing her out on the street when all she did was try and help her mom.
Mariah: Very dramatic, that one. Are you having second thoughts?
Kyle: No, but I dread what’s ahead, but how can I build a life, a family, with someone who I can never trust again?
Mariah: I think you’re doing the right thing. For you and for harrison.
Kyle: Thanks. It means a lot.
Mariah: Is there anything else going on with you? Not that there needs to be anything else going on with you.
Kyle: I’m just putting one foot in front of the other. So why don’t you take that lukewarm coffee and those pastries back to tessa and give aria kiss for me?
Mariah: You know I’m just a phone call away.
Kyle: Mm-hmm. I know.
Mariah: And I want you to use it or I will hunt you down, I promise you that.
Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless.
Victor: I’ve become aware that you and a certain member of my family have become acquainted. And I asked you to come here to give you a serious warning.
Summer: I guess there’s just one thing left to do. Harrison. Could you come down here for a minute?
Sharon: I have an idea. But you would have to get your hands dirty.
Nick: Whatever it takes.
