Nick: Sis, you pulled the whole thing off.

Victoria: Thank you. I couldn’t have done it without you.

Nick: Well, that is true.

[ Victoria laughing ]

Victoria: Oh, would you please remind the staff that this is a dry party, and we’re just going to be serving sparkling cider and mocktails. Thank you.

Nick: So, you know the drill. Jordan is an extremely smart woman. She’s been known to use disguises. You’ve got to be on your toes at all times. There is a chance she tries to break in here and tries to do more damage than she’s already done.

Mortonson: If she shows, we’ll get her.

Nick: She also likes to use other people to do her dirty work. If anybody shows up who is not on that guest list, come to me immediately, okay?

Mortonson: Yes, sir.

Victoria: So, are all of the precautions in place?

Nick: Security team’s been briefed. The staff’s been vetted. I think we’re good to go.

Victoria: Good. It’s a very big night for our parents and our family and our friends, so it’s crucial that nothing interferes with their anniversary celebration. They’ve already survived so much. They deserve all of the happiness.

Chance: Looks like victor’s gone full lockdown.

Summer: My grandmother is the most precious thing in his life. He’d do anything he can to protect her.

Chance: I understand that.

[ Summer gasping ]

Summer: Harrison! Oh, my goodness. You look so handsome. Do you have a present for your great-grandparents in there? Let’s go over here. You can show me.

Kyle: Oh, man. Summer looks happy. I think you’re a big part of that.

Chance: I’m pretty happy myself.

Kyle: No breakup is easy, but I’m pleased to see summer’s doing so well.

Chance: Well, I think you are a big part of that, man. Like tonight, bringing your son to a newman party just to give his grandparents a gift. It’s very cool of you. Getting past all the divorce trauma and trying to be good co-parents.

Kyle: A night with my former in-laws makes my kids smile that I’m in. Harrison will always come first for me and summer.

Cole: Hey, kyle. How are you doing?

Kyle: Good. You?

Cole: Doing well. It’s definitely been a while since I’ve been to a newman party.

Kyle: Yeah, it can be a lot. You ready for this?

Claire: Very. Chance, it’s nice to see you again.

Chance: You as well.

Harrison: Claire!

Claire: Hey!

Cole: Oh, someone definitely has a buddy.

Jack: Wow. You have never looked more beautiful.

Diane: Oh, you’re just saying that.

Jack: No, you’re absolutely gorgeous. My tie on straight?

Diane: It’s perfect.

Traci: Oh, are you off?

Jack: Yeah, I guess we should be going.

Traci: Well, you don’t sound very enthusiastic.

Jack: Oh. I just don’t love leaving ashley right now. It doesn’t seem right after everything she’s been through.

Diane: Well, you know, if you want to stay home and be here for her, we can absolutely skip the party.

[ Traci laughing ]

Traci: Oh, no. You’re not getting off that easily. This is nikki’s big night. You need to be there for her.

Nikki: A sip at a time. A day at a time. Just until jordan is gone.

Victor: Honey? There you are. Oh my god. Look at you. More gorgeous every time I see you.

Nikki: Oh, victor.

Victor: You ready for the big night?

Nikki: Oh, yes.

Victor: Anything you’re worried about?

Nikki: No one can spoil this night for us.

Victor: That’s right.

Nikki: We have earned this celebration. 40 wonderful, complicated, exciting years since we were first married.

Did you know…

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Jack: Ashley was very angry last night, capable of anything. What if the angry ashley is the one who wakes up next?

Traci: Jack, you have nothing to worry about. Ashley took a sleeping pill. I fully expect she’s gonna sleep through the night.

Diane: If only there was some way to make sure ashley stays herself. No more back and forth.

Traci: Whatever happens, I will just deal with it. What good is the two of you staying around here? No good at all.

Jack: So you’re pretty much pushing us out the door.

Traci: I’m pushing you out the door. Go. Have fun for a few hours.

Jack: On one condition. Let me know if there are any changes. Keep me updated.

Traci: I will.

Diane: Well, it looks like we’re going to a party.

Jack: Yep.

Billy: Hi. Wow. Don’t you look fancy.

Diane: Billy, perfect timing.

Jack: You can keep traci company.

Billy: Very happy to do that. And very, very happy to not be attending a party that toasts victor newman.

Nikki: Shall we?

Victor: Not so fast. Not so fast.

[ Nikki sighs ]

Nikki: You spoil me so. You shouldn’t have.

Victor: I hope you feel differently once you’ve seen it.

[ Nikki gasping ]

Nikki: Ruby. For our ruby anniversary. Oh, it’s stunning.

Victor: You are stunning.

Nikki: Put it on me.

[ Nikki sighing ] Thank you, my love. Thank you.

Victor: Do you like it?

Nikki: Not just for this, but for everything that you do. These last months, I know I’ve let you down.

Victor: No, no, no. Don’t talk about that.

Nikki: No, let me finish.

Victor: Well?

Nikki: You have stood by me. You have supported me. You have held me when I lost hope. You’re always telling me how strong I am. But your belief in me is what fuels that strength. You always put me first. You fight for our family and our future. And I love you for that. And I promise, the years we have ahead will be even better than we can imagine.

Victor: And I have as much faith in our future as you do. And it starts tonight. So, let us now celebrate with our friends and family. Let us celebrate our eternal love.

Victoria: Really? Okay.

Adam: Evening.

Nick: Good evening.

Sally: It’s beautiful.

Victoria: Oh, thank you. Ah, excuse me, I have to check on something.

Sally: Nice to see you.

Adam: Well, maybe I’ll get a warmer greeting from my other sister.

Devon: Oh, hey!

Adam: Glamorous, as always, abby.

Abby: Hi, adam.

Adam: Devon.

Devon: Hey. Nice night for a party, yeah?

Abby: It is. Umm, let’s go talk to victoria. I’ll catch up with you later.

Nick: Okay.

Adam: Oh, oh.

Nick: I’m glad you’re both here.

Sally: You might be the only one.

Nick: Don’t worry about it. It’s a tough room at times. How’s connor?

Adam: I wish I could tell you. I haven’t had any contact with him directly, just general reassurances from his team.

Nick: Is that part of the protocol?

Adam: Mm-hmm. Chelsea and I, we were told to keep our distance and give him some space for the first few weeks.

Nick: First few weeks?

Adam: Mm-hmm. Zero contact.

Nick: Oh, man. I bet you want to rip that place apart to get to your boy. Is it like that for all the parents?

Adam: No, it’s not. But when they tell you that you’re one of the triggers for your son’s ocd and you’re the cause of his pain and suffering and his whole world being upside down, they tell you to stay away for your kid’s wellbeing.

Kyle: You look lovely.

Claire: Thank you. And you, summer, have such a great sense of style.

Summer: Thank you.

Claire: So chic and put together I– I’d love some pointers sometime.

Harrison: Claire, look.

Claire: A bunny? Wow, that’s awesome.

Harrison: It’s my good luck charm.

Claire: A lucky-bun? Lucky you!

Kyle: He doesn’t go anywhere without it.

Claire: I used to have a good luck charm when I was little, too.

Kyle: You still have it?

Claire: Got lost somewhere along the way.

Harrison: I’m never going to lose him.

Summer: It’s time for us to go downstairs, don’t you think? Chance: Sounds good.

Jordan: How precious. Why do dermatologists worldwide recommend

Nick: Okay, I’m sorry, that sounds agonizing. Why did the doctors think you were a trigger?

Adam: Well, they claim that it came from connor. He told them that his thoughts are worse when he’s around his parents. So basically, chelsea and I, we have screwed up, and I suck as a dad.

Nick: Adam, that is not true.

Adam: Well, the doctors with their certificates and diplomas and awards seem to think so, and they think I should stay away from my own son.

Nick: But?

Adam: But none of it feels right. You know, not being around him. Not being the one that can make things better for him. So we should really just change the subject, or I’m going to be punching the walls when the guests of honor arrive. So, martinis, sound good?

Sally: Yes.

Nick: Yeah, sorry, it’s a dry party.

Adam: Oh, man. This day just keeps getting better.

Michael: Have I mentioned how dazzling you look?

Lauren: Well, not in the last five minutes.

Jack: Okay, enough, enough.

Diane: Oh, hi!

Jack: Hello there.

Michael: Oh, my gosh. You and diane had a newman anniversary. I think– I take it victor didn’t get a look at that guest list.

Lauren: Oh, well, maybe he was just feeling warm and fuzzy because of the momentous occasion.

Michael: Can I interest you in a glass of sparkling cider?

Diane: I’d love it.

Michael: Come here, honey.

Jack: Hey, there.

Lauren: Hi. So, jack abbott at a victor newman party. You know what? Your loyalty to nikki is next level.

Jack: She begged me to come. I had to say yes.

Lauren: Oh, well, she’s so lucky to have you in her corner.

Jack: Oh, she wouldn’t be doing as well as she is doing if you hadn’t stepped up to help her out at newman media. It’s just not easy, what she’s going through, on any level, but especially with jordan out there. But I am hoping that she has turned a corner.

Lauren: Oh, I’m so happy to hear that. I think she and victor have more to celebrate than just their anniversary tonight.

Victor: Mortonson. Everything all right?

Mortonson: It’s all good, sir. My men are posted at every possible entrance.

Victor: Good. You stay alert. I’m relying on you and your team, all right?

Mortonson: Yes, sir.

Victor: Thank you. Are you ready for the big entrance?

Nikki: Am I ready?

Victor: Yes. This entrance has been 40 years in the making.

Victor: Baby, you’re so gorgeous. Let’s go.

Victoria: Hello, everyone.

Claire: Hey.

Victoria: Hi, harrison. I see that you’re still making friends with claire. She’s my daughter. Did you remember that? Isn’t that cool?

Cole: Oh, and I’m claire’s dad, and so we are a family, just like you and your parents.

Claire: You know what, harrison? I think your mom wants to see you and lucky-bun. And I am going to go try one of those fancy drinks.

Cole: Sure.

Victoria: Did you see that? The way that summer was looking at claire?

Cole: Yeah. It’s hard not to notice.

Victoria: It’s not fair. You’d think that she would at least give her a chance. Maybe I should say something to her.

Cole: Or maybe you should stop worrying and overthinking. Claire has broken from jordan. She’s completely won over victor and nikki. And if she can do that, she can handle anything.

Victoria: You’re absolutely right.

[ Applause ]

Cole: Hey!

Nick: It’s time we honor the couple of the hour. Now, we’re talking 40 years, so this could take a while to dig in. Mom, dad, you’ve had it all. The ups, the downs, the highs, the lows. You have been there for each other. You’ve been there for us, your kids, your grandchildren. You’ve shown us what real love is and the power that it has and what it can survive and that it always wins. At least if victor newman has anything to say about it.

Victoria: Mom and dad, you may not have always lived in the same house, but you’ve always been a part of each other’s life, for better or for worse. And in the end, I think it’s all been for the better. You’ve taught us how to believe in ourselves, the family, and the love that holds us all together. Dad, you taught me how to throw a jab and a right cross, even when I didn’t know that’s what I needed. And mom, you showed me ever since I was a little girl that a mother would do anything to keep her child safe, to love that child and to support them so that they can flourish and be happy. I’m so proud to be your daughter and to witness this once-in-a-lifetime love that you have and be a part of this family that you created.

Nick: Thank you.

Adam: Well, victoria and nicholas aren’t the only second-generation newmans here. Um, I would like to offer a toast of my own. Maybe more of an apology. You know, over the years, I have caused my dad a lot of trouble. Too much heartache. Nikki, I… you have every reason to feel the way you do about me and for what it’s worth. I regret it all. Now, more than ever, I see my father’s wisdom. And I understand the depths of his love, not just for me, but for my son, connor. For everyone in the family. A man that pushes us to our limits, but goes beyond to help us. And to the only woman in the world that is his match in every way. Connor could not ask for better grandparents.

Nick: Good job, bro.

Summer: As a third-generation newman and a decidedly spoiled grandchild, I can say with confidence that I have learned everything that I know about love and family from the two of you. The way you fiercely protect each other and everybody that you love. The way that you always make time for one another and for all of us. And yes, they are very generous with their gifts. I mean, check out that ring that my grandmother is wearing.

All: Ooh!

Nick: Yeah.

Summer: But that does not compare at all to the love and the support and the loyalty that you show all of us. Happy 40th anniversary. I love you.

Abby: Well, it’s not a secret that I was a little bit of a brat. But my dad’s patience was as infinite as his love. You have set the bar very high for how far you will go for love. Some people might think it’s a little too far, but your mind can’t be changed, and you cannot be stopped. And nikki newman, you are the only person in the whole wide world who could match his energy. But thank you for finding a place for me in your family and in your heart. 40 years, that is a lot of love. You’re an inspiration to us all. I love you both.

Devon: Um, I just wanted to say that I’m really happy that you guys are celebrating your anniversary in the same place that honors my dad because you both meant a whole lot to neil, and you mean just as much to me, because you’ve always treated me and loved me like family. And you’ve shown me what true love really looks like and what you can accomplish with it. And I know that the power of that love has been felt by everybody in this room. So thank you.

Michael: Oh, victor. We’ve worked together, against each other. We’ve been friends, enemies, and everything in between. But the one constant in your life, victor, has been your love for nikki. When you found nikki, you found your heart.

Lauren: Mm. And we are all so grateful that you did.

Victor: Careful.

Jack: I have always been impressed with nikki’s strength and resilience. Think about it. I mean, she has put up with victor newman for all this time. Recently, I got to see just how much victor loves his wife, so much so that he’s willing to endure having me in her life, having me here at this party. So to victor, who has shown loving, loyal respect to an amazing, one-of-a-kind woman, and nikki, your commitment to your marriage and your incredible strength are a lesson to all of us.

Victor: My darling. Many moons ago, you looked into my eyes and you said, “victor newman, you will never love another woman the way you love me.” How right she was. You’ve taught me about love, what it means, what it requires, and you’ve given me a family I thank the lord for every day. All my success in life means nothing without you, my darling. Without this wonderful family. It has been a hell of a ride. I wonder where the rest of the ride will take us to.

Nikki: Well, there were a few detours here and there. But we always end up here, together, stronger for the challenges we’ve faced. But I know, with you by my side, and your belief in me, in us, that anything, everything, is possible. You are the love of my life, victor newman, and I am blessed every single day that I can call you my husband. Tonight, celebrating with our family and friends means everything, and no one can take it away from us.

Michael: To nicky and victor!

Lauren: And glorious, enduring love! Type 2 diabetes?

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

[ Indistinct chatting ]

Abby: Well, a new niece. That doesn’t happen every day. I’m sorry I haven’t been around much, but I heard you were trying to take things slow, and too many newmans at once can be a little overwhelming.

Devon: A little?

Abby: Hey.

Nikki: You and michael, your toast. You’re amazing friends.

Lauren: Well, michael did most of the talking, you know, like usual. But I agreed with everything that he said. And from your glow, I can tell you’re having a wonderful time tonight.

Nikki: I’m having an incredible time.

Lauren: I’m just so glad you’ve gotten your sobriety back. You probably won’t even need me at newman media soon.

Diane: Congratulations, victor.

Victor: Well, my goodness, diane, jack.

Jack: Victor, I hope you weren’t offended by my toast.

[ Victor chuckling ]

Victor: Considering the source, it was very appropriate. By the way, where’s ashley? I’d asked her to come by.

Diane: Oh, she meant to send her regrets. She’s, um, she’s feeling under the weather.

Billy: I remember ashley’s phantom pregnancy when she thought she had a child, but I don’t remember a lot about her earlier psychological issues.

Traci: It was triggered by trauma. Ashley was suffering from what they called hysterical amnesia. She left town. And thank god, she finally returned and she recovered. She had a few breaks after that. But this time, it’s so different.

Billy: How so?

Traci: Well, in the past, she always got help and took treatment and recovered and put it all behind her. And now, she’s resisting any kind of treatment.

Billy: Until now.

Traci: Yes, thank god. Until now. She’s willing to see a therapist and she’s willing to get to the bottom of what’s going on here.

Billy: That’s good. That’s good.

Traci: Billy?

Billy: Yeah?

Traci: I have a couple of questions for you, if you don’t mind.

Billy: Open book.

[ Traci chuckling ]

Traci: You’re so sweet. Well, you had– you had mentioned that you’ve been through something similar to this a few years back.

Billy: Yep, that’s true.

Traci: I was wondering if you wanted to talk about that a little bit more. If you don’t mind.

Billy: I don’t talk about it very much. But that was a very tough time for me.

Summer: Thank you for being my date tonight. You know, the full-on newman experience isn’t always an easy one.

Chance: There’s no place I’d rather be.

Adam: Miss? You know me. This is the best part of the night.

Sally: Well, the evening isn’t over yet.

Cole: Wow.

Victoria: She really does look so happy, doesn’t she?

Cole: Yeah, it’s just so great to see her so relaxed. Just comfortable in her own skin.

Victoria: She was very excited about tonight.

Cole: Uh… about the, uh…

Victoria: The kiss?

Cole: Yeah. That. I hope I didn’t overstep. And I’m sorry if I made you feel uncomfortable in any way.

Victoria: No! No, I’m not uncomfortable at all. I mean, it was a surprise. But it wasn’t really a surprise.

Cole: Hm. I felt the same way.

Victor: Hey, son.

Adam: Hell of a party, pop.

Victor: Thank you.

Adam: Congrats again on 40 years.

Sally: You two are truly an inspiration.

Nikki: That’s very kind of you to say.

Victor: How is connor, by the way?

[ Adam sighing ]

Adam: I’m afraid not good. But I will keep you posted.

Nikki: Oh, the poor little guy. So far away. No family nearby. Would I be able to send him a care package?

Adam: He would love that. Thank you.

Nikki: Anything we can do to help him get through it.

Victor: It goes for you as well. You know that, right?

Adam: I do.

Victor: Don’t worry about connor. I’ll take care of things. He’ll be all right.

Adam: Thanks, dad.

Victor: So, why don’t you go out on the dance floor with miss spectra? Have a great time, okay? A nice evening.

Traci: Billy, I am so grateful that you’re okay. I mean, facing something like that alone. So much courage and so much strength. And I’m so sorry that you didn’t feel like you could turn to the family.

Billy: Oh, it wasn’t that. I always know I can go to you, but… you know, it was just my own issue. I just didn’t want to really share it with anyone at the time. Although, I did confide in jack a little bit.

Traci: Um… thank you for trusting me with all of this, and I hope you know, you can always come to any one of us. We will rally around you, just like we’re doing for ashley right now. No judgment, only love.

Diane: Kyle. I didn’t expect to see you here, but I’m glad you are.

Kyle: Well, harrison wanted to come, so I gave him a ride.

Diane: You’re a good dad.

Kyle: I try.

Diane: Yeah. It’s a wonderful party, isn’t it? I don’t know how victor and nikki pulled it off for all these years. I mean, well, granted, 40 is a bit of a fudge. It neatly erases my marriages to victor and jack’s to nikki, but still, it’s quite an accomplishment.

Kyle: Mom, mom, mom. I know you’re making an extra effort because you’re unhappy with me, but that doesn’t change that.

Diane: No, kyle, I’m not unhappy with you. I’m unhappy with the situation, but I’d like to believe it will all work out.

Kyle: Yeah. Yeah, one way or another. Things will work out just fine.

Victor: Well, now, look at this. What do we have here? Oh.

Nikki: Oh, harrison, how beautiful.

Victor: It’s so nice.

Nikki: I know right where we’ll hang it.

Victor: Yeah. Yeah. Thank you. Your daddy’s right over–

Nikki: Thank you so much.

Victor: Look how charming you are. My goodness. Daddy’s right over there.

Diane: Oh.

Harrison: Dad, I’m sleepy.

Kyle: I hear you, buddy. All right, we’re calling it. Harrison’s tired and I’m not really part of this party anyway.

Summer: Good night, sweetie. I love you.

Kyle: Oh, grab your backpack, pal.

Summer: Yeah, here you go.

Claire: Harrison’s amazing.

Summer: Yeah, he is.

Claire: You and kyle have done such a wonderful job raising such a happy and smart little guy.

Summer: We do our best.

Nick: Got to hand it to you, you know how to throw a party.

Victor: Part of the newman tradition, you know.

Nick: Yes, sir.

Victor: By the way, let’s keep an eye on security, all right? We’ve got to keep a lid on all that.

Nick: Yeah, I’ve been talking with the security guards all night. There’s been nothing unusual, no uninvited guests, no sign of jordan.

Victor: Well, to be honest with you, I wish there had been because then we could have finally caught her.

Nick: You know what they say, dad?

Victor: What?

Nick: Be careful what you wish for. Struggling with the highs and lows of bipolar 1?

Nikki: Hello.

Victor: Are you happy, my darling?

Nikki: I am as happy as I was 40 years ago in your arms with our future ahead of us. Thank you so much, darling. Tonight has been wonderful.

Victor: Yes, it has. Wonderful.

[ Applause ] Shall we?

Nikki: Certainly.

Victor: If you don’t mind, I would love to dance with my lovely bride.

Claire: Someone’s going to miss their lucky bun.

[ Soft piano music playing ]

Victor: Happy anniversary.

Nikki: Happy anniversary, darling.

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless…

Claire: It’s getting late. I should go.

Kyle: No. Please. Stay. Dad, I wish this was a game, but it’s not. Damn it. Damn it! Why did I trust her with him?

Victoria: Why would she bring harrison here?

Summer: Claire took harrison. They’re both missing.
