Young & The Restless Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Nick: Thank you.
Sharon: Thank you.
Nick: So, I heard you knocked it out of the park with the west coast kirsten divisions.
Sharon: Well, you were such a superstar with the east coast divisions, I could hardly let you show me up.
Nick: Well, what can I say? It’s probably just the dimples. Can I grab a muffin?
Sharon: Sure. So, you wanna tell me what’s going on?
Nick: Um, well, let’s see. Our attorneys have scheduled a conference call for next week.
Sharon: No, I mean, with you, nick. What’s going on with you?
Nick: It’s nothing. I’m good. All right, I’m not that good, but I will be. Don’t– don’t worry about it.
Sharon: See, when you tell me not to worry about something, that makes me worry even more and you know that. Especially when I can tell that you want to punch a hole through a wall right now. So, can you just maybe narrow down what it is I’m not supposed to worry about? And then I won’t start making things up.
Nick: Look, I came here so we could compare updates on our kirsten trips, okay? Let’s not get bogged down with any personal stuff. We are business partners.
Sharon: We were also married, nick, and we raised children. And we still managed to remain friends, good friends. And we’re going to remain friends for the rest of our lives, whether this business together works out in the end or not. So, that’s not an either or thing. Tell me what’s going on. What happened?
Adam: Sally. Sally! Will you please wait? I need to know what happened in the park.
Sally: I don’t care what you need and I don’t want to talk about it so just leave it alone.
Adam: Okay, I’m sorry, but I can’t do that.
Sally: Well, try.
Adam: My brother almost ripped my head off in the park. I would like to know what brought that on.
Sally: Isn’t that a normal state for the two of you?
Adam: Okay. This was different.
Sally: Okay, just give him some space, okay? Leave him alone. He’ll cool off.
Adam: Sally, cool off from what? Please, would you just tell me? It’s important for me to know where my brother and I stand, okay? Look, did you tell him that I kissed you? Is that what set him off?
Abby: Oh, look at you. Looking good. I love you in a suit. I mean, I like you better without the suit on, but you look good both ways.
Devon: Ooh, thank you.
Abby: Wait, you have a late meeting or something?
Devon: Uh, actually we have a late meeting, if you care to join me?
Abby: We do? What are we doing?
Devon: Uh, mamie invited us and the rest of the family to get drinks at the jazz lounge.
Abby: Okay. What’s the occasion?
Devon: Uh, hopefully, she’s gonna tell us she’s the mystery investor in chancellor-winters. Maybe explain why she’s kept it a secret this whole time.
Abby: Well, in that case, let me go change. Got the perfect outfit.
Daniel: Hi. I came as soon as I could. What’s up?
Lily: Well, I have a favor to ask you and I could have texted you, but I thought I could be more persuasive in person.
Daniel: You were right. What do you want?
Lily: Um, well, aunt mamie invited us to the club and I want you to be my date.
Lily: Why are you saying it like it’s a bad idea?
Daniel: Well, I’m assuming that she’s gonna announce her new involvement in chancellor-winters, right?
Lily: Yeah, I would assume so.
Daniel: And you want me tagging along for that?
Lily: You’re not tagging along, you’re a part of chancellor-winters. You should be there. And besides, with the guest list, it’s kind of like a family thing and I want to show aunt mamie how happy you make me.
Daniel: Yeah. Yeah. I mean, as fun as that sounds, I’ve got that meeting with my creative team that I’ve already canceled three times.
Lily: Oh, yes. That’s right.
Daniel: No. Look, I’ll tell you what, you go tonight, without me. You have an amazing time. And sometime in the near future, let’s get together with your aunt and show her just how happy you really are.
[ Knocking on door ]
Nate: All right. Pencil down. It’s quitting time.
Victoria: Says who?
Nate: Says me. You and I are off to the neil winter’s lounge for cocktails.
Victoria: We are?
Nate: Yes. Aunt mamie organized a family get together and I would love for you to accompany me.
Victoria: Oh, wait a minute. Did you say family get-together? Does that include devon and lily?
Victoria: Are you trying to go to war with them again?
Jack: Mamie, do you know how happy it makes me to see you like this?
Mamie: Like what? Energized? Strong? A woman on top of the world?
Jack: Yeah, that about covers it. You forgot to mention beautiful as ever.
Mamie: Oh, no, I didn’T. I just paused so you could say it.
[ Both laughing ]
Jack: I don’t suppose you’re gonna fill me in on what you’re up to this evening, are you?
Mamie: Jackie, I am the luckiest woman in the world. I have two families and one of them is the abbotts. And I will cherish that bond forever. And now, I have to work on building a relationship with nate and lily and devon. And that’s why I put together this special evening. And why I have to take certain steps to truly reconnect–
Jack: See, there you go again. Certain steps. You are gonna drive me crazy with this mystery, mamie. Come on. Hey… it’s me! Your dry skin!
Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by… eggland’s best.
Victoria: Come on, nate. You can’t possibly think it’s a good idea for me to– to come with you to a family gathering.
Nate: I happen to think it’s an excellent idea.
Victoria: Well, your cousins are not exactly my biggest fans. I mean, devon and lily still blame me for what you tried to do to them at chancellor-winters. So, how’s it gonna look if you and I walk in together? Like we’re, I don’t know– like we’re trying to rub something in their faces.
Nate: Lily and devon have too much respect for aunt mamie to cause a scene.
Victoria: Well, then maybe they’ll just walk out. And then your poor aunt’s family gathering will be over before it’s started.
Nate: I promise you that is not going to happen. Everyone who’s invited will come and they will stay, which gives me another chance to try to mend the fences with my cousins.
Victoria: I know you want that. I want that for you too. I really do.
Nate: Okay, so come with me.
Victoria: Are you sure?
Nate: Victoria, you and I are in a relationship and I am not about to apologize to anyone for what you and I have. Besides, I’ve become pretty involved with your family.
Victoria: Well, you can certainly say that’s true.
Nate: Well, I think it’s high time you become part of mine.
Mamie: Okay. I’ll tell you, but only because I remember how you used to pout whenever you thought people were keeping secrets from you.
Jack: Wait. I didn’t pout.
Mamie: Yeah, you keep on telling yourself that. I bought out a private investor and I now have a major stake in chancellor-winters.
Jack: Mamie, that is giant news.
Mamie: It sure is. And if everything works out, this is just the beginning.
Jack: Wow. You have really made the most of your investments over the years, haven’t you?
Mamie: Well, being around john abbott for decades certainly didn’t hurt. No. Your father was a brilliant businessman.
Jack: Well, you’ll get no argument there. There’s a reason he’s a legend in the corporate world.
Mamie: You see, jackie, I always had a plan to take care of all of you until you could stand on your own two feet. And then…
Jack: And then you would start your new life as…
Both: An entrepreneur.
Mamie: That’s right.
Jack: And it’s all led you full circle back to genoa city.
Mamie: When the idea of being in business with my niece and nephew hit me, I was willing to move heaven and earth. Even victor newman, just to make it happen.
Jack: Wait, what does victor– he’s the private investor? Mamie, I am so happy for all of you. For, well, all of you except–
Mamie: I know exactly what you’re going to say, jack.
Jack: This is great news for you, for devon, for lily, for chancellor-winters. I just hope you’re prepared for the unavoidable roadblock that you’re about to run up against.
Mamie: Yeah, well. I know it’s not gonna be easy, but I will do whatever it takes to make this happen. Come on, let’s face it. Who can prepare for jill?
Nick: Okay, friend. If you must know, while I was out of town, adam and sally happened to run into each other at the athletic club and they decided to have dinner together.
Sharon: Dinner. Okay, well, that’s not that big of a deal, nick. The two of them went through a terrible loss together, so for them to be able to find some level of peace…
Nick: Oh, there’s more to it than that. After dinner, adam decided to walk sally to her room.
Nick: Then, he kissed her.
Sharon: Oh, adam.
Nick: I mean, it’s typical adam, you know? He refuses to accept that he’s lost anything, especially to me, and he wants to just get it back, no matter what it is, however he can, whether he deserves it or not and I’m sick of it.
Sharon: Well, I can’t say that I blame you. But what are you gonna do about it? And don’t tell me that you’re gonna confront adam.
Nick: No, not right now. ‘Cause I’m sure I’ll do something I’ll regret. Like rip off one of his arms. I’m sure if you do something like that though, you get some prison time. So– so I wanted to come here. Just focus on my work and not think about him or what he did because when I do, all I can think about is how bad I want that son of a bitch gone for good and out of everyone’s life.
Sally: What difference does it make if I told nick about the kiss? You said that you were sorry, end of story. That’s the truth, right? I mean, unless you want to stir up some more trouble. Is chaos the only thing that makes your life worth living?
Adam: No, sally. That is not what I want.
Sally: Okay, then stop asking questions and just leave it alone.
Adam: Okay. I– I would love to do that, but if you told him, I need to know, not to cause more chaos. I have to know where nick and I stand because I’m trying to rectify my relationship with him and the rest of my family.
Sally: Okay, come on, adam. You and I both know that is a complete lie. I have moderate to severe crohn’s disease.
Adam: What do you mean that it’s a lie?
Sally: Because you’re you, adam. In spite of everything that you have said, everything that you’ve done over the last several months proves that you can never change. You can’t let me go. You can’t let go of newman media. You can’t let go of the anger at your father and the rest of your family for not treating you like you deserve the world. You say that you want to fix things, but they’re just words that you repeat, over and over again. Your actions are what matters and you refuse to stop blowing things up.
Sharon: Well, obviously you did the right thing by coming here instead of confronting adam, especially when you’re this angry and I’m not condoning what he did. We’ve all had to learn the hard way that love is love and we can’t just turn it off, no matter how much we would like to sometimes.
Nick: Adam does not love sally, all right? She’s just a trophy to him. Same as everything else in his life. He doesn’t love. He covets. His entire life is– is based on greed and jealousy and self-pity.
Sharon: There is nothing healthy about adam’s behavior. I agree with that. But when you say that he can’t love, I don’t know. I mean, he’s taken this long struggling to get over sally. Look, the only way that that kiss matters is if it somehow emotionally affected her. Did it?
Jack: How does anyone prepare for jill? That’s a good question. She doesn’t like to be tricked and god knows the animosity between the two of you goes back decades.
Mamie: Just wait until she finds out just how successful I’ve been since she paid me off to leave genoa city. Oh, this is gonna take her over the top.
Jack: Oh, not half as much as finding out you are the new mystery investor.
Mamie: But all I’m doing is replacing an investor. Jill shouldn’t be upset about any of that. I mean, money is green, honey. My money’s as good as victor newman’S.
Jack: That’s all perfectly logical. Logic doesn’t always apply with jill. Go ahead and give it a try. Listen, when you said you invested in chancellor-winters, it was only the beginning. Any chance you’d tell me what else you got up your sleeve? Come on, it’s me. It’s jackie. You can tell me.
Mamie: Oh, look, my guests are arriving. Sorry, jackie.
[ Jack sighing ] Having triplets is…
Lily: Well, it was good to see you, jack.
Jack: Good to see you. I have to be heading home. I’m sorry to do that.
Mamie: No, we’ll miss you.
Jack: Well, I will miss you too. All of you, but, uh, diane and I have to finish planning our wedding celebration tomorrow.
Mamie: Oh, jackie. I’m just so glad to see that you finally found real love and happiness. Although I have to admit, I was a bit worried when I discovered that diane was back and living in your house no less. But I have to admit, she– she really has turned her life around.
Jack: She has done that and so much more, mamie, I promise.
Mamie: I believe you. And I’m looking at that twinkle of joy in your eye. I’m really looking forward to celebrating it.
Jack: Have fun tonight, mamie. Lots of fun. Good evening.
Nate: Aunt mamie.
Mamie: Hello, victoria. Wow, you’re as lovely as I thought you might be when I was watching you grow up.
Victoria: Oh, thank you. That’s very sweet of you to say that.
Mamie: Oh, you know what? You have to come and see this snapshot of nate that I found when he was a baby. Come on over.
Nate: Oh, no.
Victoria: Oh, I would love to see that.
Mamie: I’ve got it on my phone.
Victoria: Oh my goodness. He’s so chubby.
Lily: Honestly, I’m surprised that you’re even enamored with victoria. Or is it just that she’s useful to you?
Nate: You’re never gonna give me a chance, are you?
Lily: Honestly, nate, this is me trying.
Nate: Then, let’s clear the air once and for all. My feelings for victoria are very real. You don’t have to like her, but you do have to respect my decision. Otherwise, there’s no point in us talking about being a family.
Lily: How do you not realize that you dating victoria throws everything that you two did to devon and me in our faces? Do you really think that we’re just gonna forget that?
Nate: Lily, did you forget that devon tried to take you to court? Or did you forget that devon and abby cheated on amanda and chance? Got caught red-handed, humiliated them, but they’re treated like the happy new couple in town. Everyone’s moved on. I am just as happy with victoria, but all you and everyone else can see is the past. I admitted I crossed a line. And I am sorry I hurt elena, but the truth is I’ve never been more comfortable in my own skin than I am now. With victoria.
Lily: Yeah, nate, that’s what’s scary. It’s terrifying because elena was your conscience and victoria can’t give you that. I mean, she’s pushing you to be bigger and better and collateral damage be damned.
Nate: For the record, I made the effort tonight.
Lily: Yeah, okay.
Nate: But this is over. Enjoy the wine.
Sharon: You’ve gone quiet.
Nick: Yeah. I hate to admit it, but I think the kiss affected sally more than she’s willing to admit. Even more than she’s aware of.
Sharon: And what makes you suspect that?
Nick: I don’t know, but I don’t want to talk about it. I came here to cool down and get some work done.
Sharon: Okay. How do you think we’re doing with that?
Nick: Not great. I’m pretty useless right now. But you did help.
Sharon: I did? How?
Nick: By being the rational person in the room, talking me down. Thank you. I appreciate it.
Sharon: I’m always happy to help a friend keep from dismembering his brother.
Nick: It’s one of the qualities that first attracted me to you.
Adam: I know what nick thinks of me, but I thought you and I, we were in a better place.
Sally: Better than what? Yeah, my heart was broken when we lost our little girl and I was filled with grief and rage, directed at you and the universe. We are in a better place from that, yeah. As friends. As two people working through a shared trauma, but then you had to go and ruin it by kissing me.
Adam: And I apologized for that. I told you that it was a mistake.
Sally: Yeah. But you also said that it was a mistake that you didn’t regret.
Adam: And you know what? I still don’T. Okay? It was a moment. It was an impulsive moment just between us.
Sally: No, it was a lot more than that, adam. Look, I’m just getting my whole life, my whole world balanced and back in order and now thanks to you and this impulsive moment, it’s all teetering again.
Adam: I mean, you’re– you’re not even talking about nick’s reaction to that kiss, are you? You’re– you’re talking about yours. When it comes to your hair, ingredients matter. at humana, we believe your healthcare should evolve with you, and part of that evolution means choosing the right medicare plan for you. Humana can help. Hi, my name is sam davis and I’m going to tell you about medicare advantage prescription drug plans that can provide more coverage than original medicare, including prescription drug coverage, all wrapped up into one convenient plan. With original medicare you’re covered for hospital stays and doctor office visits, but you have to meet a deductible for each. And then you’re still responsible for 20% of the cost. Next, let’s look at medicare supplement plans. If a service is covered under original medicare, then a medicare supplement plan pays for some or all of your medicare deductibles and the 20% coinsurance. But they may have higher monthly premiums and no prescription drug coverage. Humana medicare advantage prescription drug plans include medical coverage, plus prescription drug coverage. As well as dental coverage that includes two free cleanings a year, plus a yearly exam. Vision coverage includes vision exams and a yearly allowance toward eyewear such as lenses or contacts. And hearing benefits include routine hearing exams and coverage toward hearing aids. You’re covered for preventive services like annual mammograms and prostate exams. There’s a zero-dollar copay for routine vaccines and telehealth visits. And you get worldwide coverage for emergencies when you travel. You get all of this in one convenient plan. Plus, there’s a cap on your out-of-pocket costs! So, call or go online today to see if there’s a humana plan in your area, to find out if your doctor is in one of our networks, and to get our free decision guide. There’s no obligation, just good information. Humana – a more human way to healthcare.
Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.
Sally: You say that you want to rebuild relationships, but you don’T. You just want to make them what you want. And if the truth doesn’t work for you, then you rearrange it. You twist it into knots and you will only ever think what you want, but listen to me, there is no us, okay? And– and– and just let me give you a serious piece of advice. Stay away from nick for the time being. And me, okay? Because yes, I did tell nick about the kiss and yes, it upset him.
Adam: Okay. That’s all I needed to know. But take my word for it, um, I know my brother very well and I promise you, me kissing you did not upset him. It’s more than that.
Sally: Okay. Why does it have to be more than that? You crossed a line with your brother and your so-called friend.
Adam: Sally, he would only be that upset if that kiss triggered some emotional response in you.
Sally: Oh, my god enough. Please don’t you dare try and make this into more than it is, okay? Just stay out of my way and out of my life. And for the love of god, stay out of my head.
Mamie: Well, thank you all so much for coming tonight. Wow, I feel as if I’m in a dream. Standing here in genoa city, my home for so many years. In the neil winters jazz lounge, my brilliant nephew-in-law. Surrounded by my beautiful– my beautiful family. Sorry, I’ve missed you all so much. It won’t surprise any of you who know me that I have not stopped keeping tabs on you from the sidelines. And so, I’m aware of many of the ups and downs that you’ve all been through. I also know about some of the anger and animosity that’s been happening between you as well. I don’t mind telling you how much it breaks my heart and know that it breaks olivia’s heart too. And don’t think for one minute that neil and drucilla are not looking down and they’re having their hearts broken too. Which is exactly why I have asked you to be here tonight. To let you know that it is my intention to return to genoa city to whip you all in shape and to make this family the strong powerhouse that it was before and that it shall be again. (Vo) when it comes to nature valley, which camp are you in?
[ Sally sighing ]
Nick: Adam has a hold on you. Maybe he always will.
Sally: Look, nick, please. Okay? We are in such a good place and I really love what we have together. I don’t want to feel this way, okay? I– I– I don’t want to feel confused and– and mixed up. If– if I could straighten out my jumbled-up emotions right now, I would. But you asked me and this is where I’m at. But it doesn’t mean that I care about you any less. Just please tell me I haven’t screwed this up.
[ Sally sighing ]
[ Phone ringing ]
Nick: Yeah, I like that one too. It’s sally.
Sharon: Oh, okay. You should take that.
Sally: Hey, how are you?
Nick: Just, uh, here with sharon, working?
[ Sally sighing ]
Sally: You are not okay. I can hear it in your voice. Neither am I.
Nick: Has adam bothered you again?
Sally: Look, can we please talk this out?
Nick: Sally, I told you I’m–
Sally: Working. Yes, I– I know. I’m amazed that you can actually concentrate right now.
Nick: Well, sharon’s pretty good at grounding me when I need it.
Sally: Remind me to thank her. Nick, please. I– I completely steered things in the wrong direction this afternoon.
Nick: Yeah, they did go south pretty quickly.
Sally: Yeah, I know. I’m sorry.
Nick: Then adam showing up didn’t help. You know what? You’re right. We need to talk. I’m on my way.
[ Sally sighing ]
[ Sally exhaling ]
Mamie: Now, just to be clear, I have no illusions about being able to unify this family from a distance, which is why I intend to do this work from the inside. I have purchased a substantial investment in chancellor-winters from a very influential, very cooperative, secret investor.
Devon: Well, I don’t think it’s a secret because we know that the investor is victor newman.
Mamie: So, now you know. And I hope that you’re as excited as I am to know that I’m gonna be strongly connected to the future that lily and devon are building. In memory of two of our most extraordinary family members, kathleen chancellor and neil winters.
All: Hear, hear. Cheers.
Mamie: And now, nate, as for you. And we all know that you’re in knee-deep over at newman enterprises. And good for you. Good for you. But I just want you to know upfront, it will give me great pleasure to lure you away to rejoin us at chancellor-winters.
Lily: Uh, sorry, did you just say rejoin us?
Sally: Nick, don’t make too much out of this, okay? It didn’t mean anything to me–
Nick: But it meant everything to him.
Sally: Okay. He kissed me. I didn’t–
Nick: How did you feel afterward? Sally, there’s no judgment here, okay? I’m not mad at you, I promise, but I need to know everything. No matter what, just be honest. I need to know how you felt because it’s obvious adam’s never gonna let this go, no matter what he says.
Sally: I had a mixed reaction, I guess. I– I don’t know how I felt. No question, the kiss was out of line. And– and I really do feel like he was sincere when he said he was sorry and…
Nick: And what?
Sally: I don’t know. It’s hard to just see how much pain he’s in, still being in love with me and knowing that I’m with you.
Nick: So, there is a part of you that is still in love with him?
Adam: Nick. Look, um, I was gonna call you later, okay? I have something that I wanna say to you and–
Nick: I’ll go first. You need to stop this. You need to leave her alone. For sally’s benefit, mine, and definitely yours. You know me, my patience has a limit.
Adam: You– you’re absolutely right, okay? I’m sorry, I crossed the line. What I did was wrong on every level and I want to apologize sincerely to you and to sally. Holy cannoli.

[ Nick sighing ]
Nick: I just saw adam downstairs.
Sally: Oh, no, please tell me you didn’T.
Nick: I didn’t lay a hand on him. I didn’t even raise my voice.
Sally: What did you do?
Nick: I warned him that he is gonna leave you alone because I’ve run out of patience.
Sally: I’m sure he didn’t take that well.
Nick: Actually, he did. He says he knows he screwed up. That he was wrong and that he apologized to both of us.
Sally: Well, that’s a relief, right?
Nick: If it were coming from anyone other than my brother, yeah. It’s just another adam newman mind game, but I’m at my breaking point with him.
Sally: Well, I mean, do you really think that’s what he’s up to?
Nick: There is no way in hell I believe he’s gonna leave you alone, sally. He’s just trying to get me to let my guard down.
Sally: Okay. Well, you know what? I– at the end of the day, it– it doesn’t really matter. Adam’s gonna do whatever adam is gonna do and we can deal with it if and when it comes to it. But honestly, frankly, it is the last thing on my mind right now ’cause the one thing that I care about, the only thing that I care about is the reason that I wanted to see you.
Nick: And what’s that?
Sally: I just really want to know if we’re okay.
Nick: I don’t know. I don’t know. That depends on you and what’s in your heart. I want to know the truth. No more deflecting. No more denial. I want the truth. No matter what it is.
Sally: The truth is that I’m falling in love with you too. I am.
Sharon: Oh, we’re closed, adam.
Adam: Yeah. I– I– I know you are. But the, uh, the lights were still on and your car was still in the parking lot, so I thought I would stop in and say hi. Is– is there anything that I can help you with?
Sharon: Um, as a matter of fact, there is. Could you tell me why you feel that you have to mess things up for everyone who you believe has harmed you?
Adam: Oh, I take it you spoke to nick.
Sharon: I have.
Adam: Oh, I can only imagine how he spun things. But then again, I guess he didn’t need to because, um, I’m guilty as charged. I crossed the line, okay? So, nick has every reason to be upset with me.
Sharon: Well, I agree with that. I feel badly for him.
Adam: Yeah. Yeah, so do I.
Sharon: I doubt that.
Adam: No, no, I– I really, I mean it, I do. Because what nick doesn’t see and what became clear as a bell to me today is that he is fooling himself.
Adam: Sharon, sally’s not in love with nick. Sally’s still in love with me.
Mamie: You heard me perfectly, lily. I know that nate left chancellor-winters under less-than-ideal circumstances, but I’m hoping that we can take all of that anger and that sense of betrayal and leave it in the past where it belongs. And that we can invite nate back to rejoin us in our family’s company.
Lily: Yeah. I don’t know if that’s possible, but it’s the word “us” that’s confusing me because you bought an interest in the company from victor, but yet you’re making it sound like you’re gonna be an integral part of it. So, I mean, what exactly are your intentions at chancellor-winters?
Jill: Yeah. Actually, I’m pretty curious about that myself.
