Chance: Sharon. Where’d you go just now?

Sharon: Oh, my gosh. I must have dozed off for a minute.

Chance: Yeah.

Sharon: Did you change clothes? You look very dashing.

Chance: No, I’ve been in this suit all day.

Sharon: Really? No, I distinctly remember you were wearing a sweater and cords.

Summer: Hi. Sorry, I’m late.

Chance: Not really. Hi. Wow, look at you. You look amazing.

Summer: So do you. Hey, sharon. Are you ready to go?

Sharon: Am I ready to go where exactly?

Chance: Did you forget? We’re going to celebrate the deal you just finalized between kirsten incorporated and chancellor-winters.

Summer: Yeah, dad’s gonna meet us there. He just texted.

Billy: Good evening, everyone.

Summer: Hi.

Chance: Nice, man. Everything all set?

Billy: It’s gonna be a fantastic night. Kirsten’s technology combined with chancellor-winters content. Sure to be a success. Thank you to you sharon for suggesting that we join forces.

Summer: I don’t see dad here yet. I mean we can’t start the celebration without him. You two are half of it.

Sharon: Am I dreaming?

Chance: No, sharon. This is definitely your reality. ( ) Why did I keep missing out on this? Befoou wer

Summer: Look at you. Every inch the successful businessman. Leaving the police force was the best thing you could have possibly done for yourself. And you did it at the exact right moment.

Chance: Well, thanks to sharon. She was the one who encouraged me to shift gears when I was wrestling with the idea.

Billy: On behalf of chancellor-winters, thank you, sharon, for not only being brilliant, but also being an incredibly positive influence on us all. Here’s to sharon.

All: To sharon.

Summer: Oh, I see my mom. I’ll be right back.

Billy: And I have a little schmoozing to do, so you enjoy your evening because you deserve it.

Chance: That she does. I’ll check you later.

Billy: I’ll see you later.

Sharon: None of this is making any sense to me. Are you dating summer now? When did you and I stop?

Chance: Oh, wow. Sharon, I, uh… you and I haven’t been together for a while now. You said that I wanted more out of the relationship than you did. That you weren’t ready to fall in love. That you were doing me a favor.

Sharon: And did I do you a favor? Are you happy now?

Chance: I mean, I cared about you, sharon. It took me some time to get over you, but you made the right call. Especially now that I know that there’s really only one person for you. Don’t let him slip away again.

Phyllis: Buy the lady a drink.

Nick: I’m waiting for someone.

Phyllis: Who? Sharon? That’s not gonna work. Not again.

[ Nick sighing ]

Nick: Phyllis…

Phyllis: You’re never ever going to love her the way that she loves you. You have made that clear.

Nick: Oh, have I?

Phyllis: Oh, yeah, you have. Over and over and over again. No matter how many times you get sucked into her orbit, you will never love her the way that she loves you. It’ll never last.

Sharon: I’m so glad I ran into you.

Mariah: A little bit confused, are we? Don’t know which way is up?

Sharon: I’m not sure what’s going on. I guess I’m in some dream. I’m just trying to go with the flow, but it’s all a bit disconcerting.

Mariah: Well, that’s because you’re letting it lead you. Take control of things.

Sharon: I have. I’m successful. After all these years, I finally found my niche.

Tessa: But your heart is still empty.

Your love

gets in the way

of the bad things

people say

my feet

were broken and bleeding

you washed my sins away

my heart needed dreaming

[ Tessa singing ]

Mariah: What tessa said really bothers you, doesn’t it?

Sharon: I knew she didn’t mean to upset me.

Mariah: No, of course not. She was just calling it as she sees it.

Sharon: My heart’s not empty. I’m fine. I’m happy. Just because I’m not ready to fall in love again. But look at everything I’ve been through. Nick has brought me a lot of joy, but he’s also caused me a lot of pain. I lost rey. And chance and I…

Mariah: What happened there?

Sharon: We’re just at different stages of our journey. I know what it’s like to be deeply in love, where nothing and no one else takes precedence. Chance has been married to his career for so long, he has yet to experience that.

Mariah: Even with abby, his job came first.

Sharon: Even though he and abby were not a match, chance is still gonna want to find that profound connection at some point. I had to let him go so that he could find it for himself.

Mariah: That is very noble of you.

Sharon: I wasn’t being noble, mariah. I was just being realistic. Chance made me feel really special. He was fun.

Tessa: So, he was just a distraction for you?

Adam: We’re all distractions for sharon. Sure, some more distracting than others, but there is only one life and love that is her destiny. And we all know who that is.

Sharon: I’m sick of hearing people tell me that nick is the one. Why does everyone think that? Do people not remember the many times that he cheated on me and broke my heart?

Adam: It seemed to mend itself pretty well considering how many times you went back.

Sharon: I loved that man with everything in me and it wasn’t enough.

Tessa: That’s really sad.

Adam: The two of you moved on from each other a few times and nothing ever seemed to stick.

Sharon: Nick was not my only love. I felt very passionately about rey. We had an amazing life. Cut short far too soon.

Adam: It was good. Sure. It was solid. It was safe emotionally. But was it really passionate? Was it wild and unbridled? I mean, even with me, there was more of a spark and I was by no means the love of your life.

Mariah: That’s for sure.

Adam: I was just your dark temptation. Your walk on the wild side and I accept that. Just as phyllis is the dark temptation for nick. But it’s not love. It’s something different and it has no staying power.

Tessa: He has a point.

Sharon: I feel like you’re all ganging up on me. I’m here to celebrate a new business. A successful business. That’s what I’m focused on now.

Chance: Sharon took a struggling business founded by a monster and she turned it into a vehicle for good. And now, it’s launched a joint venture with the powerhouse, chancellor-winters, represented tonight by myself and–

Billy: And yours truly. And the sky is the limit. So, let’s all put it together for sharon newman.

Sharon: Thank you. Thank you. That’s very kind.

Adam: Like mariah said, this is your dream, sharon. You can follow or you can lead.

Sharon: As you gentlemen both know, there is no such thing as a solo triumph. Success is always a joint effort born of collaboration. So… this celebration is for all of us.

Billy and chance: Cheers.

Sharon: Hear, hear.

Tessa: Finally

I found something

strong and steady

and I’m ready

for someone like you

Adam: Now’s your chance.

Sharon: To do what?

Adam: To make a clean getaway.

Tessa: I’m running

to someone great

who wants me to feel safe

Billy: Come with me.

Tessa: Finally I won’t let me moderate to severe plaque psoriasis symptoms define me…

Billy: Can I get you anything?

Sharon: I’m supposed to ask you that.

Billy: No, no, no. You are not waiting on anyone tonight because you are the star.

Sharon: Mm. I don’t know about that.

Billy: I do. I admire the hell out of you, sharon. I always have. Everything you set your mind to, you accomplish. You are a force of nature. Don’t ever forget that. You know, ever since you and your mother were left to fend for yourselves, you’ve had your fair share of struggles. Your boyfriend that left you once he found out that you were pregnant. Losing cassie and mariah without even knowing that you had twins. Cassie’s death. Adam’s head games, bipolar disorder, cancer. Rey. A good man dying far too young. Cameron kirsten and that whole nightmare.

Sharon: Oh, my god, please. Wow. Is that really all me?

Billy: Not to mention the heartache that nick has put you through all these years, but then again, that’s mostly phyllis’s fault. She is his achilles heel. I don’t know why, but he cannot say no to her.

Sharon: And boy, does she know it. She uses her sexuality as a weapon to get what she wants. Doesn’t matter who gets hurt. When nick and I were grieving cassie, it was nonstop agonizing pain. And phyllis could clearly see that, but she drew him away. In any case, even though we really needed to be together at that time as a family, fighting to heal over this tremendous loss. Phyllis knew all of that, but she pursued him anyway. And as for our son and me, nick was only too happy to find an oasis so that he could feel like himself again. You know, I don’t think I’ve ever forgiven either one of them for leaving me alone at a time like that.

Billy: Don’t think for a second that they don’t know how much that costs you and noah. Especially nick. I mean, that’s the reason why him and phyllis will never work, because of the guilt that he has. They have their fun. Then, it becomes work and then it’s done.

Sharon: I don’t want to talk about phyllis anymore.

Billy: Understood. Let me handle her.

[ Phyllis and nick laughing ] Phyllis, can you do me a favor? Can you pass me the deck of cards in your right hand, please? Would you like to join me outside and play a hand?

Phyllis: For some reason, yes, I do.

Nick: Dance with me.

Sharon: Do you remember the last time we tried to make a go of it?

Nick: That was like five years ago. You were at the altar, ready to say I do.

Sharon: And I made sure that everyone in that church knew exactly why the wedding wasn’t gonna happen.

Phyllis: Oh, a reenactment?

Billy: I think that’s a fantastic idea. Maybe even cathartic.

Nick: I’m game if you are.

Sharon: Come on.

Phyllis: Okay.

Sharon: I think I was standing somewhere around here with my wedding dress on. And you were–

Nick: Yeah. Somewhere like this, maybe.

Billy: And we were over here, the happy couple, although not for very long.

Phyllis: Hey. Ladies and gentlemen, sharon and nick’s fiasco of a wedding. On your mark, get set, go!

Nick: I’m so sorry. I never meant–

Sharon: What? For me to find out? Well, it’s too late now. Everybody knows.

Billy: You slept with nick?

Phyllis: Um, let’s not talk about this here. Let’s go outside and talk.

Sharon: What? Leaving so soon, phyllis? Why? The fun is just getting started.

Billy: You know, sharon’s got a point. Why go?

Phyllis: Well, because it’s a private matter.

Billy: No, it’s not a private matter at all anymore. I mean, why run off and be clandestine about it? Just so you can tell me how innocent you are? Don’t you want everyone to know that, phyllis?

Phyllis: I would just–

Billy: It didn’t happen, right? So just deny it.

Sharon: They lied to both of us, billy, and they thought they could get away with it. Well, they know better now.

Billy: When did this happen? Come on, phyllis, you’ve never been shy before. Just tell me, when were you with nick?

Phyllis: When we were broken up.

Billy: When we were broken up? That only lasted like a few days, phyllis. Wow, you move fast.

Sharon: Well, nick and I were only apart for one night and that’s all that took.

Nick: Come with me, please.

Billy: Let’s hear it for the bride. Thank you, sharon. You not only saved your life, but you saved mine too. This is really quite funny. While we were waiting for the festivities to start, I actually asked phyllis to marry me. I know. Funny, right? I mean, in all of that, that was happening. Right in that fraction of a moment where sharon was about to tell everyone about this dirty little secret between phyllis and nick. Well, I guess this isn’t the only wedding that’s not gonna happen. Thank you, sharon. I dodged a bullet.

Nick: We need to talk.

Sharon: Why? I already heard all of your pathetic excuses the first time you cheated on me with her. I don’t need to hear them again.

Billy: Actually, I would like to. This is my first rodeo here, so I would like some answers. Oh, come on. Really? Nothing? Okay. How about you, nick? Was this little tryst like a one-night stand thing or is this more of like an ongoing affair type thing?

Sharon: You know, I would like an answer to that too.

Billy: Well, come on, we’re all dying to hear.

Phyllis: It just happened once. And– and we regretted it right away.

Nick: All of that’s true. Now, can we please go talk somewhere?

Billy: Really? Do you think you’re gonna be able to talk yourself out of this, nick?

Sharon: No way in hell.

Phyllis: Why are you making a big scene out of this?

Sharon: Oh, are you embarrassed? I’m the one standing here in my wedding gown and you’re humiliated?

Billy: I would say that’s a yes.

Nick: Don’t listen to them, sharon, please. Please.

Sharon: Don’t touch me!

Phyllis: And scene.

Billy: Wow.

Nick: You know, that was really cool. I can’t believe how much I remembered of that.

Billy: It really was quite an unforgettable day.

Nick: Yeah.

Sharon: Thank you. You can go now.

Phyllis: Another hand?

Billy: My deal.

Nick: Well, that was…

Sharon: Instructive?

Nick: I’ve been a real jerk to you.

Sharon: At times. Why do we keep missing the mark? Why do things always fall apart?

Nick: I guess I haven’t found what I’m looking for.

Sharon: Have you ever in your entire life really known what that is?

Nick: Seems it’s always eluded me.

Sharon: You know what I think? There’s a part of you that’s always coveted the whole bad boy image. It’s probably the reason you detest adam so much. You envy how easy it is for him to be that person. The way he can lure a certain type of woman right in. Usually the insecure type who doesn’t think she deserves anything better. And billy can be that way too. Which is ironic, given that he covets being someone like you.

Nick: So then, who am I, really? You have any idea?

Sharon: You’re superman. Champion of all good. For some reason, it’s a role you’re conflicted about.

Nick: I suppose that’s fair.

Sharon: I never understood. Why not just embrace your goodness? What’s wrong with being a righteous man? Why do you have to follow someone like phyllis into the shadows?

Nick: Opposites attract.

Sharon: Opposites eventually cancel each other out and then you’re back at square one.

Nick: Okay. Well, then what next? Where does that leave me? Where does that leave us?

[ Phyllis and billy laughing ] I never meant to hurt you. It was never my intent.

Sharon: You just couldn’t help yourself?

Nick: Obviously not.

Sharon: Well, at least you’re honest.

Nick: I try to be.

Sharon: It’s one of your more endearing qualities.

Nick: I’m really happy with where we are, despite our history. You know, I’m content with that. I would never ask you for another chance.

Sharon: Would you take it if I did?

[ Phyllis and billy laughing ] I can’t even get a straight answer in my dream. Have you seen your father?

Summer: He was just here a minute ago.

Sharon: Maybe he’s avoiding me.

Summer: Why would you think that?

Sharon: He didn’t happen to leave with phyllis, did he?

Phyllis: Nope. Right here.

Summer: Sharon, why would you think that my dad is avoiding you?

Sharon: It’s just been a weird evening.

Summer: Look, I know that he has made so many mistakes throughout the years. I mean, haven’t we all? Don’t you think it’s time that you absolved him? I mean, for everything? Gave the poor guy a clean slate?

Sharon: What are you trying to do here?

Summer: Excuse me?

Sharon: Are you feeling a bit guilty around me because of chance, latching on to him so quickly after our breakup? So what? Now, you’re suggesting I try again with nick as a consolation prize?

Chance: Don’t put pressure on summer like that. When you had to know deep down that she and I were inching toward each other. Plus, you pushed me away. No harm, no foul.

Sharon: I didn’t think we were right for each other. I didn’t want to get in too deep.

Chance: Sharon. Are we talking about me or are we talking about nick? Because I don’t believe that you’ve given up on him just yet. You’re still trying to find yourself.

Sharon: Is that what I’m doing?

Chance: Remember sharon, the end is in the beginning.

[ Piano playing ]

Tessa: Your love

gets in the way

of the bad thing

people say

my feet

were broken and bleeding

you washed my sins away

my heart needed dreaming


Tessa: Who knows

where we are going

the road might be

steep ahead

but you’ll always

have my hand


[ Music stopping ]

[ Distant, loud laughter ]

Summer: Could I have everybody’s attention, please? We have an announcement to make. Chance has asked me to marry him!

Chance: And she said yes.

[ Clapping ]

Harrison: Hi, mommy.

Sharon: What is going on here? How is it that we all keep messing things up? Why can’t we just get it right?

Nick: Life isn’t supposed to be perfect, sharon. We just have to keep trying.

Sharon: Was it supposed to be you and me in the end, I mean? Is that what this is about?

Chance: Sharon.

Sharon: Oh, my gosh. Woo. Was I sleeping?

Chance: Yeah. It seemed like you needed it.

Sharon: Wow, um, I had the most bizarre dream.

Chance: Want to talk about it?

Sharon: Um, I think I wanna just keep it to myself for a little while. Sort through it.

Chance: Okay. All right. So, I’ve been thinking about our last conversation.

Sharon: Yeah?

Chance: Yeah. I told you I was happy with the way things are, that I’m right where I want to be.

Sharon: You regret that now?

Chance: Just the opposite, actually. You know, you asked me earlier if I was looking to fall in love and I realize now I didn’t give you much of an answer. It’s an important question. And I was a bit evasive.

Sharon: Well, I wasn’t fishing and I wasn’t trying to rush you. You have every right to take the amount of time that you need to figure that out.

Chance: Well, that’s just it, I don’t think I need any more time. I can give you an answer right now. And the truth is sharon, I am looking to fall in love. And I can definitely see myself doing that with you. Marlo thomas: My father founded saint jude children’s research hospital because he believed no child sh ould

Sharon: Wow. What an incredibly sweet thing to say. Um, I’m flattered that you feel that way about me.

Chance: Okay. Uh, not exactly the response I pictured, but…

Sharon: Well, chance, we’ve talked about this. You know, I– I really enjoy the time that we spend together, but I’m just not looking for anything serious or intense right now.

Chance: Why would you say that?

Sharon: Because I mean it. Falling in love is the last thing on my mind.

Chance: No disrespect, sharon, but I don’t buy it. I think you’re scared of getting hurt again and it’s totally understandable.

Sharon: Um, you know, like I said, I– I just have a lot going on in my life right now that takes priority over my love life.

Chance: If you say so.

Sharon: You don’t believe me?

Chance: No. I think you need to let your guard down. And keep your heart open to every possibility because you never know what life has in store for you.

Sharon: You should take your own advice.

Chance: I am. And this is what this is all about. When you’re with the right person, you just know.

Sharon: I’m not the woman of your dreams, chance. I don’t know that I ever will be.

Nick: What are you doing here all alone?

Summer: Ah. Just sitting, thinking. About life, love, and choices. Dad, why didn’t you and mom work out as a couple?

Nick: Uh, I guess we were more different than we were alike.

Summer: So, you didn’t have enough in common?

Nick: Mm. Might be part of it. There’s also temperament, personality, values. Maybe we wanted different things. Um, your mom and I had some amazing times together, but in the end, we didn’t have what it took to go the distance.

Summer: What about you and sally?

Nick: What is this? We going down the list of all my failed relationships?

Summer: No. No, I swear. I just, um, thinking about my life and, um, disappointments. Mistakes I’ve made. I thought maybe hearing someone else’s experience might help me gain some clarity.

Nick: Well, uh, sally… I honestly, I don’t know what went wrong. Obviously, there was adam, you know, he was relentless. What is it you’re trying to figure out, summer?

Summer: What about you and sharon? Why didn’t things work out between you two?

Nick: Okay. Finally an easy one. Um… things were great on a lot of levels with us, but I, of course, screwed that up. Plain and simple. It was all me. Um, I broke her heart far too many times and there was just no coming back from that.

Chance: How do you know what the woman of my dreams is like? I don’t even know. But what I do know is I can see a future with you sharon.

Sharon: But, I can’t see one with you. There’s so much more out there, for both of us. We’re both starting over fresh. Both on the threshold of a brand new career and I can’t tell you how excited I am about that. And I want that for you too. A new path to something wonderful and lasting and… I do want that for you, chance. You deserve the best of everything, including a woman who will love you with her whole heart and put you first.

Chance: It sounds like you’re breaking up with me.

[ Whooshing ]

Sharon: I guess I am.

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless…

Adam: To us.

Sally: To us.

Cole: More beautiful than ever.

Ashley: Thank you. This is a face I never thought I’d see again. What brings you back to our fair city?

Nikki: I can’t go home. Victor, can’t see me.

Lauren: Okay. All right. Look, I have an idea.
