Paul: It's nice to have you here.

Christine: I was in Los Angeles when I heard.

Paul: On business?

Christine: And to see Nina.

Paul: How's she holding up?

Christine: She's shattered.

Paul: I'm sure it meant a lot to have you there to comfort her.

Christine: Well, I was with her when Neil phoned.

Paul: It's hard to believe that Ryan is gone.

Christine: It just doesn't seem real.

Paul: I mean, he is a survivor.

Christine: Phillip's counting on her.

Paul: Yeah, I know. I really feel for the kid.

Christine: So did you know Iíd be here?

Paul: Katherine told me.

Christine: You look good.

Paul: You, too.

Cassie: Christine.

Christine: Oh, my God. Cassie. Wow, I think you grew about a foot since I last saw you.

Cassie: Not that much.

Sharon: But almost.

Christine: Hi. It's good to see you. Hi, Sharon.

Sharon: Good to see you.

Brittany: What are you doing?

Raul: Nothing.

Brittany: Come here.

Raul: What's your problem?

Brittany: You don't want Rianna seeing you like this.

Raul: Like what?

Brittany: You expect me to believe they don't get to you?

Raul: Actually, seeing them together like that seals it for me. Breaking up with Rianna was the right thing to do.

Brittany: It's amazing how people deceive themselves.

Rianna: So what do you wanna do tonight?

J.T.: Well, why don't you decide?

Rianna: We could go to a movie.

J.T.: That's all we've done lately.

Rianna: Do you have a better suggestion?

J.T.: Yeah, let's just hang out.

Rianna: Okay. Well, we could go to the shopping center.

J.T.: I was thinking someplace a little more quiet.

Rianna: Like where?

J.T.: Your place. Are your parents home?

Rianna: As far as I know. We can go down into the rec room. They never go down there. Why? What's the difference if my parents are in the house or not?

Michael: Well, I'll be damned.

Diane: Hello, counselor.

Michael: This is a surprise.

Diane: I needed to see a friendly face.

Michael: Yeah? You came back to Genoa City for that?

[Michael chuckles]

Diane: I heard about Ryan McNeil.

Michael: Yeah. Yeah, it's a tragedy, isn't it?

Diane: Not that my sympathy matters one iota to anyone in this town.

Michael: Uh-oh. What happened?

Diane: My visit has been a complete fiasco. You would think this would be a time of reflection and forgiveness, but nothing's changed.

Michael: You've been making the rounds.

Diane: You remember what I was like when I left town.

Michael: Vividly.

Diane: I had never been so low in my entire life.

Michael: Yeah, you were pretty miserable.

Diane: But all that is in the past. I've spent the last year reinventing myself. You are looking at a brand-new Diane Jenkins.

Michael: Hmm. Really? Now where does this brand-new, reborn Diane Jenkins call home?

Diane: Milan.

Michael: Milan? That's not too shabby.

Diane: I'm working for an architectural firm there.

Michael: You heard about Ryan McNeil all the way over in Europe?

Diane: No, no, no. I was in Chicago doing some research on a building Iím designing. I thought I'd swing through town and express my sympathy. What a mistake that's turned out to be.

Michael: You know, I don't mean to be insensitive. But what kind of reception were you expecting to get?

Diane: I certainly didn't think I'd be welcomed with open arms, but I thought I'd at least be treated like a human being.

Nikki: Hi, sweetheart. Victor.

Victoria: Is the reverend here yet?

Nikki: Yes, he's in the office with the funeral director.

Victoria: I need to talk to him before the service.

Nikki: Well, is there anything I can do?

Victoria: I wanna make sure that the music is all set up.

Nikki: Honey, I already did it. It's all arranged.

Victoria: I just hope I took care of everything.

Victor: Sweetheart, don't worry. You have forgotten nothing. Let me take your coat.

Victoria: Thank you. There's Nick and Sharon.

Nick: Hey, sis.

Victoria: Hi.

Sharon: Hi.

Victoria: Um --.

Sharon: Have you been inside yet?

Victoria: No, Dad and I just got here. The obituary -- did you guys take care of it?

Sharon: Yeah, we did.

Nick: It says exactly what you wanted.

Sharon: And in lieu of flowers, all donations should be sent to the New York Firefighters, Widows and Children's Fund.

Victoria: Okay, thank you for taking care of that.

Sharon: Whatever you need, Victoria, just ask.

Victoria: Okay, thank you.

Jill: Victor, Nikki.

Victor: Hello, Jill.

Jill: My condolences to both of you.

Victor: Nice of you to come by.

Jill: And to your family.

Nikki: Thank you very much.

Victor: Hello, Gina.


Jill: I'm so sorry.

Victoria: Thank you.

Victor: Nice to see you.

Ashley: Victoria, Iím so sorry.

Brad: Ryan was a good man, Victoria.

Victoria: Thank you for coming.

John: He was one of the best.

Gina: You know how I feel.

[Organ music playing]

Victor: Hello, Olivia.

Olivia: Hi. I just wanted to pay my respects. Ryan was more than a patient. He was a friend.

Victor: I'm glad that you were the one who took care of him.

Olivia: Thank you, Victor. I'm just gonna go and say hello to Victoria.

Victor: All right. Do that.

[Whispering condolences]

Nick: Jack, Phyllis.

Jack: Hi.

Nick: Can I take your coats?

Jack: How you doing, buddy? Listen, how's your sister doing?

Nick: She's hanging in there.

Jack: It's gotta be a really tough time for her.

Nick: Yeah, it is.

Jack: You all right?

Phyllis: Yeah, I just hate funerals.

Jack: I know. I know.

Mary: Isabella!

Isabella: Hello, Mary.

Mary: Well, this is a surprise. Do you mind if I join you?

Isabella: Well, actually, I was just on my way out, and --.

Mary: Oh, just for a little while.

Isabella: Okay.

Mary: I had no idea that you were in town. Did you come back for a visit?

Isabella: No, I never left.

Mary: Well, I certainly wished that you had called. At the very least, Paul could've told me.

Isabella: Your son doesn't know.

Mary: I see.

Isabella: He wouldn't keep something like that from you, Mary.

Mary: I'm not so sure about that.

Isabella: Why's that?

Mary: Well, shortly after we thought you left, my son and I had a falling out. I thought we had come to terms, but now seeing you here I can't help wondering if that wasn't the case.

Isabella: I don't follow.

Mary: Paul accused me of interfering in your relationship, and he felt that I was pushing too hard.

Isabella: Forcing me on him?

Mary: He was speaking out of anger. He apologized later.                                  

Isabella: What else did your son say?

Mary: Isabella, I -- I really don't think I should be discussing this with you. It's not my place.

Isabella: You're already involved.

Mary: Did you stay in Genoa City because you thought you'd have a second chance with Paul?

Isabella: Why? When your son apologized, did he imply that he still had feelings for me?

Rianna: Why does it matter if my parents are home?

J.T.: I get the feeling they're not my biggest fans.

Rianna: Why would you think that?

J.T.: Well, the few times Iíve hung out with them, they've given me the cold shoulder.

Rianna: Oh, that's your imagination. You know, now that you mention it, I think it'd be a great idea if you came over and got to know them better.

J.T.: Maybe some other time.

Rianna: Why not tonight?

Larry: Victoria?

Victoria: Hey.

Larry: I, um -- I just wanted to say that, well, I feel bad about what happened with Ryan. It's a rotten deal.

Victoria: Thank you. That means a lot. Excuse me.

Nikki: Larry.

Larry: Hi.

Nick: We heard what you said to Victoria.

Nikki: That was very thoughtful of you.

Nick: So are you gonna stick around for the service?

Larry: I really don't think I should. I don't think some people would like that.

Victor: You're referring to me?

Larry: What's this about?

Victor: I understand you told one of your friends in jail to look out for me.

Larry: I heard back that you didn't need much help.

Victor: Nevertheless, I appreciate it. Thank you for coming.

Nick: So why don't you stick around?

Larry: I really don't wanna get in the way. But thank you.

Sharon: We want you to stay. Please.

Larry: If it's all right, then I will.

Sharon: Thank you.

Victor: It's so good to see you.

Christine: It's great to see you, too. I just wish it were under better circumstances.

Victor: Yes, so do I. And I hope you will stay here for good, too.

Christine: Well, if you'll excuse me, John Silva just walked in.

Victor: Yes.

Jack: Victor.

Victor: Hello, Phyllis. Hello, Jack.

Jack: Our thoughts and prayers are with your family today.

Victor: Thank you, and I appreciate you both coming.

Jack: Listen, I talked to Nikki. She told me that Diane paid you a visit.

Victor: That is unfortunately true.

Jack: Yeah, I saw her, too. Nikki's concerned she might show up here.

Victor: I wouldn't be surprised.

Jack: I thought what I might do is sit in the back row here, just in case she decides to --.

Victor: I think that's a very wise move. Anyway, thank you both for coming.

Phyllis: You didn't tell me you saw Diane today.

Jack: I was just looking for an opportunity to tell you.

Phyllis: That's very interesting. We were just talking about her this morning, weren't we?

Jack: Yeah, it's amazing. So is her attitude.

Phyllis: Why?

Jack: We don't really wanna talk about this here.

Phyllis: Why --?

Jack: I'm going to say a quick hello to Malcolm and Alex, okay?

Michael: And who exactly are we talking about here?

Diane: Who else?

Michael: Victor.

Diane: I went by the apartment to extend my sympathies.

Michael: Oh. He slammed the door in your face?

Diane: He might as well have.

Michael: So I take it your condolences fell on deaf ears.

Diane: Ha. Well, not only that, he made it clear that I was not welcome at Ryanís funeral.

Michael: Well, you know, the man really knows how to hold a grudge.

Diane: Don't joke, Michael. I admit I may have made some miscalculations in the past. But Victor is no angel.

Michael: I know. That's the last thing I'd call him.

Diane: You know, he condemns me for my behavior. But what about his temporary marriage to Nikki? He swore he'd come back to me, and I was stupid enough to believe him.

Michael: Well, at least you can take some satisfaction out of knowing that Nikki wasn't able to snare him either.

Diane: Maybe a little. I've gotta stop. I couldn't care less about Victor.

Michael: Of course not.

Diane: Michael, as terrible as it was to lose Victor and then find out my baby wasn't his, it taught me a valuable lesson.

Michael: What's that?

Diane: I am better off without him.

Malcolm: Hey.

Neil: Hey.

Malcolm: How's the eulogy going?

Neil: Yeah. Yeah, I just finished it.

Malcolm: Come here, man. It'll be all right. Let's go sit down.

[Organ music playing]

Reverend: A reading of the 23rd Psalm of David -- "The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul. He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies. Thou anointest my head with oil. My cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."

J.T.: Do we have to hang out with your parents tonight?

Rianna: They make you nervous?

J.T.: Well, yeah, but that's not the problem.

Rianna: Then what is?

J.T.: Well, Iím in the mood to relax. Sitting around, trying to act like Mr. Perfect, that's not what I had in mind.

Rianna: Okay. We can do it another time. We're just back at square one.

J.T.: Yeah, I guess so.

Rianna: Wait a minute. I think I know where you're going with this.

J.T.: You do?

Rianna: Yes. And I have just the solution. Wait right here.

Reverend: Next, we'll hear from Ryanís good friend, Neil Winters.

Neil: Um -- you know, I -- I spent a long time thinking about what I was going to say up here. And now that Iím up here, reading from this piece of paper doesn't seem quite right. So instead, I'm just gonna -- I'm just gonna speak to you from my heart. Someone reminded me that today shouldn't be about Ryanís death. It should be about the celebration of his life -- the person that we all knew and loved. And I'm sure all of you will agree with me that it was very easy to love Ryan. Because of his positive spirit -- his wonderful way of looking at the world. I believe that's what made Ryan such a good man, such a loving father and an exceptional friend.

[Echoing] I'll never forget the first time that I met Ryan.

I don't wanna go on the way we've been

just got to move on keepin' it clear

a sad goodbye was just moments away

Iím so glad we had this time

to come and say

that you've got my love you've got my mind

you've got my shoulder when you wanna cry

you've got my heart you know you make it shine

you are my friend until the end of time

time is moving on now for you and me

there's no way of knowin' what's to be

just the look in your eyes when you call my name

makes me feel so good inside Iím here to stay

'cause you've got my love you've got my mind

you've got my shoulder when you wanna cry

you've got my heart you know you make it shine

you are my friend until the end of time

A silent stranger on a stranger night

J.T.: Hey, who'd you call?

Rianna: I got us two tickets for the concert at the university tonight.

J.T.: You did?

Rianna: Mmm-hmm. The concert has been sold out for weeks, but I know this guy who got us seats.

J.T.: I thought we were going to spend some time alone together.

Rianna: Well, we said we couldn't do that tonight. Do you want to do something different?

J.T.: It's too late.

Rianna: The music will be great. Besides, we have some time before the show. We can get some more coffee.

J.T.: Yeah. Yeah, thanks a lot. [Sighs] A concert -- with a million other people. Great.

Brittany: I don't care what you do with your life.

Raul: There's a way you can pay me back for helping you with your essay.

Brittany: How?

Raul: What do you say we spend some more time together?

Brittany: I get it. You want to use me to make Rianna jealous.

Raul: I'm not into playing games, Brittany.

Brittany: Then what would you call it?

Raul: I'm trying to steer clear of Billy and Mac. They're constantly on my case. And you know, you've been pretty easy to get along with lately. So I figured we'd hang out a little more. All right, never mind. Forget I said anything.

Brittany: No, wait a minute. Sit down.

Neil: There are so many things Iím gonna remember about Ryan. He was always willing to lend an ear. Ryan was a great listener. He never complained about the hand that life dealt him. Even at the end, he was counting his blessings. I watched that man live every day of his life to the fullest. And believe it or not, he died without any regrets. Victoria, he wanted you to know that. We should all strive to be more like Ryan McNeil. Ryan, I'm gonna miss you, man.

Victoria: Thank you, Neil. And thank you all for coming. We are having a reception at the ranch afterwards, and I would love it if you could all join us.

[Organ music playing]

Malcolm: Neil, hey. Really, really nice job on that eulogy. Ryan would have been real proud. You know what, listen. I've got an idea. Why don't the four of us put in an appearance at the ranch, and then we can go back to our place and wind down a little bit. What do you say?

[Pager buzzing]

Neil: The hospital?

Olivia: Yeah. I'm sorry. I have an emergency. Good-bye.

Malcolm: Okay. Well, we will see you at the ranch. Neil, don't forget what I said earlier. Alex and I, we are always here for you.

Neil: Yeah, thanks.

Victoria: The eulogy was beautiful.

Neil: Thanks, Vicki. I'm really tired, and I think Iím just gonna skip --.

Victoria: No, I understand.

Neil: Vicki, he loved you.

Victoria: And he loved you, too.

Neil: Take care.

Victoria: Mmm-hmm.

Victor: Let's go.

Michael: So is Victor the only person you've talked to so far?

Diane: No, I bumped into Jack while I was at Ginaís.

Michael: Oh. That didn't go well either, did it?

Diane: He said some really hurtful things to me.

Michael: Did he tell you he's engaged to Phyllis Summers?

Diane: Yes. How does that make you feel?

Michael: Well, I'm thrilled.

Diane: I'll bet.

Michael: No, she makes him very happy. I'm thrilled.

Diane: Well, if that's the case, then why was he so nasty to me? It's not like I tracked him down. I wasn't begging for forgiveness. A little civility would have been nice. You know, seeing Jack again brought back all these old feelings. I have so many regrets. Michael, are you listening to me?

Michael: Mmm-hmm.

Diane: What's the matter with you?

Michael: I've got a lot on my mind.

Diane: So you can't even give me half an hour?

Michael: Look, you have no idea what Iím dealing with right now.

Diane: Try me.

Michael: I'm not sure there's any point to telling you.

Diane: Why? You can't trust me after all we've been through?

Michael: You know what? I need to figure this out on my own, thank you!

Diane: Figure out what?

Michael: Okay, I got a woman pregnant and she insists on keeping the child, even though it's the last thing I want. Is that specific enough for you?

Diane: Wow.

Michael: Oh yeah, that's one word for it -- wow.

Diane: Is this about child support?

Michael: No, that I could handle.

Diane: But she wants more from you.

Michael: The woman refuses to leave town. It's clear that she intends to make this relationship public knowledge, which could have very negative repercussions on the rest of my life.

Diane: So Iím guessing this was a momentary indiscretion, two ships passing in the night?

Michael: Something like that.

Diane: When did she find out she was pregnant?

Michael: Recently.

Diane: So maybe she hasn't thought things through.

Michael: You really think she might come to her senses?

Diane: She might.

Michael: I hope so. But right now, Iíve got to figure out a way to get her out of Genoa City.

Mary: Yes, Isabella, Paul did admit that he still has feelings for you.

Isabella: Really? I can't believe the timing, that I would run into you before any bridges are burned.

Mary: Then you do have hopes where Paul is concerned.

Isabella: I'd be lying if I said I didn't.

Mary: I thought so.

Isabella: Still, after the way things ended Iím a little wary.

Mary: Well, I agree, you should be careful.

Isabella: The way you say that, did Paul say something else?

Mary: I think you should know where my son stands.

Isabella: You said he still has feelings for me.

Mary: Yes, but not only you.

Isabella: This is about Christine.

Mary: He cares very deeply for both of you. It's your decision, of course. But I just thought this information could be used to your advantage, with Christine so far away and you here in town.

Isabella: Mary, I may not be the smartest person when it comes to relationships, but I'm not about to make the same mistake twice.

Mary: You're leaving?

Isabella: It was nice seeing you again. There are some things in my life I can control. And I have to go deal with one of them right now.

Katherine: Victoria, we can do that.

Victoria: Do you think we have enough food?

Katherine: Darling, there's plenty. Now everything is under control.

Victoria: I know. I just want to check things out.

Nikki: Sweetheart --.

Victoria: Not now, Mother.

Nikki: Why don't you just relax for a minute. Everything doesn't have to be perfect.

Victoria: Yes, it does. I think I'm going to go to my room and freshen up a little bit.

Nikki: Honey, while you're there, why don't you lie down?

Victoria: No. No, that's not necessary.

Diane: Take it from me, Michael. A woman who's pregnant will not respond well to pressure, especially when her baby's father is trying to drive her out of town.

Michael: You got a better idea?

Diane: Try backing off a little. Sooner or later, she'll realize there's no point in trying to have a relationship with someone who's not interested.

Michael: It's not that simple.

Diane: Is there something you're not telling me?

Michael: This baby is not exactly the result of a one-night stand.

Diane: So there are other factors at play. All right, let's break this down. What does she want?

Michael: To stay in Genoa City.

Diane: Well, there's nothing you can do about that.

Michael: You're probably right.

Diane: What else?

Michael: Child support.

Diane: Which is your responsibility.

Michael: Yeah, I agree, I agree -- yes, yes, yes.

Diane: So where does that leave you?

Michael: Up the creek without a paddle.

Diane: Come on, Michael. You're the expert negotiator. Do I really have to tell you what to do? Try using these points as bargaining chips. You give her what she wants. And in exchange, you get what you need to keep your life in order.

Michael: She has to keep a low profile.

Diane: Now you're thinking.

Michael: That's good work. Ooh -- uh, I have a court appearance. I'll walk you out.

Diane: Oh -- do you mind if I stay here and make some calls?

Michael: No, be my guest. I'll see you later?

Diane: I don't know.

Michael: Okay. Well, don't be a stranger. Thanks for the advice. This could be the answer Iím looking for. Welcome back.

Diane: I wish I could find some answers for myself.

J.T.: Thanks. We won't be long.

Rianna: What are we doing here?

J.T.: We need to talk.

Rianna: Now?

J.T.: There's some things we need to get straight, Rianna.

Diane: And those renderings are being sent to Chicago? Okay, great. I'll let you know when I get them. Thanks.

[Door opens]

Isabella: Oh, excuse me --.

Diane: Hello.

Isabella: I was looking for Michael. Is he in?
