He's got it all figured out and he'll be getting married soon.  Victor begins to tell Jack what a

lucky man he is for marrying Mary Jo.  Jack corrects him and tells him of Laun.  Victor can see how much this means to Jack and wishes him the best.


Mary Jo is working hard when Laun comes into her office unannounced. Laun wants a few words with her.  She is seething at the way Mary Jo manipulated the situation between the three of them to get what she wants.  She held their friendship in the highest regard while Mary Jo stooped to such low levels to try and get Jack to to mary her, knowing all along that Jack wasn't that interested.

Laun's rage builds and she explodes in a torrent of words that leaves Mary Jo not knowing what to say.  As Laun tries to leave she almost faints.  Mary Jo tries to find out what is wrong but Laun won't admit to anything being wrong.  Outside Mary Jo's office, Laun uses the secretary's desk phone to call her doctor. He suggests an ambulance but Laun will make it there on her own.

Mary Jo overhears and uses the phone book to find out all she can about this doctor.

this sudden turn of events.  It doesn't matter to Danny, he will be there for Cricket no matter what the circumstances.



Abbot Mansion

things being settled.  She wants to borrow $20 but John won't give it to her.  This starts to escalate with John getting more and more upset. Maime steps in and calms things down, giving Jill $20.

thinks about it and then kisses her again in a way that leaves no room for doubt that John is attracted to her.  He leaves Maime standing there with the most incredulous look on her face.


Chez Cricket


Mary comes by griping.  Paul won't accept any phone calls.  She's upset that she didn't get invited to the wedding.  Mary hardly gives Cricket time to answer but finally she gets the word that the wedding didn't happen.  She assures Cricket that it's for the best, barely concealing

the fact that she's overjoyed about this turn of events.  Cricket tells her she intends to find out what happened.  

After Mary leaves, Danny shows up.  He explains how he came to find out about her situation.  Cricket cries a little and Danny supports her.  Cricket is going to find out what happened.




Mary arrives in Paul's room and he's not happy.  He tries to get her to leave.  Mary is deaf to his pleas.  Again, Mary can barely contain her delight in Paul calling off the marriage.  Finally, she leaves after letting Paul know he's made the right choice.

Nina doesn't agree to go, but does ask when it will be.

Nathan ticks off Keesha.  Mamie gets a new look and says goddbye to John.  Paul and Chris make headway.  Just as Danny finishes telling Phyllis their marriage is dead, she collapses and is rushed to hospital.  When she wakes up, she claims she has no recollection of her conversation with him, but really knows what happened.  While Phyllis is laid up in the hospital, Danny goes to his ex-wife and begs her to wait until he's free before she makes any decisions about her future.  He tells Christine he loves her, then kisses her.  Now that the four-month trial period is over for Phyllis and Danny's marriage, Phyllis seems to be at the end of her rope.

Matt flashes back to the night he was shot, and sees an image of the person who left him for dead.  The only thing he can make out is the figure of a woman, which would clear Nick.  Before Matt can say anything about what really happened that night, however, Victor comes to him and, thinking Matt is unconscious, tells the boy that Nick has been arrested for the shooting and that Matt must come around so everyone will know the truth.  After Victor leaves, Matt wakes up with a sinister smirk on his face- and then names Nick as his assailant.  During Nick's bail hearing, Detective Bob Adams arrives to testify that Matt has come out of his coma and revealed who shot him- Nick.  Request for bail is postponed again, as Nick's lawyers ask for time to investigate this new development.  John and Mitchell can't figure out how Matt knew Nick was being held.  Victor realises Matt must have heard him when he went to see him at the hospital.  However, instead of suspecting that Matt has lied, Victor wonders if his son is indeed guilty.  Victor doesn't think Matt could lie about something this serious.

Victor doubts Nick's innocence.  Amy makes a connection.  Matt tells Sharon he'll help her in return for a sexual favour.

As the prosecution is taking his seat..he stands up again..and asks for a few more moments with Sharon...the judge allows him this. "Sharon..lets talk about the night Matt was shot."

"Okay Sharon, you have just testifyed that you told Nick about the rape...what did he do then Sharon...did he leave the room." Sharon replies yes. "Was he upset..enraged..angry..what was he Sharon."

Mitchell starts to question Sharon. "Sharon...remember you are under oath here...did or didnt Matt Clark rape you last year." As Sharon is about to answer..the prosecution objects. Mitchell tells the judge to bear with him for just a minute...because Sharon's testimony is also crucial to their defence. The judge allows Mitchell to go ahead..but not to take so long on this subject. Sharon then answers yes...Mitchell asks Sharon why she never told the police...or her family. Sharon replies because she was to scared..and too embarrassed. Mitchell tells the judge that he has had enough with this witness for the time being.

Phyllis attorney's arrive. She asks him if she agrees to the divorce..the paper work will still take about 4 months to 6 months. The attorney tells her if that if both parties agree to the settlement and everything else..it could be all over within 30 days. Phyllis is stunned..but has no choice...she must take this gamble.

The prosecution tells the jury and Nick that he cannot believe Nick didnt shoot Matt. "Why I believe this Mr Newman, I will tell you why."

"Secondly...when you said in your statement that you walked in to Matt Clarkes apartment..and found him lying on the floor, why did you pick up the gun..and clean it...and why Mr Newman..did you not telephone the police." Those Mr Newman is not a man who isnt guilty..but a man who is. You say it was because you thought it was Sharon Collins who shot Matt, but you honestly didnt know that.

"Oh really...and would your name by any chance be Keisha." Keisha smiles, and says yes..then Dru introduces herself..."I'm Drucilla Winters...Olivias sister."

Kiesha tells Malcolm that she has to leave..she will see him later...she has an appointment.

Closing statements at Nicks trial is just a recap of each sides statements. The prosecution doesnt say much..he thinks that the evidence they have...tells it all...Nick Newman is guilty. John Silva tells the jury that Nick Newman could not of killed Matt Clarke..because of all the time differences that everyone has said..while on the witness stand.

"I know what you are up to Phyllis...you want me out of the way...so I wont be a problem for you to try and win Danny back...well I think you should listen to me now..and listen good....I am not your problem....you are your own problem..you cant face the fact that Danny does not love you."

But Christine doesnt believe her motive...and tells her so. "Look Phyllis...there really is no reason that you should be here...so can you please leave."

Victor recieves a phone call at the ranch from the judge’s office. Nick's sentence hearing is set for today at 1.00pm. When Nikki comes down the stairs, and Victor tells her...Nikki is frantic. "Victor....please with all the money and power that you have....isn’t there something that you can do to save our son." Victor tells Nikki that he has done all he could do....it’s now in the judge's hand...but he tells Nikki that he will never stop fighting to prove Nick's innocence.

Christine is getting ready to head into the office when Danny comes over. He asks her to give him a minute of her time. Christine thanks Danny for the flowers...then asks him what he thought of Phylli's latest stunt. Danny doesnt know what Christine is talking about. Christine is shocked..and tells Danny about Phyllis coming over to see her. Danny is stunned also.....then asks Christine why she doesnt trust Phyllis right now. "Are you serious...after what she has done....you expect me to trust her...for your sake Danny, I hope she goes through with this divorce...but somehow I doubt it." Christine has to rush out to the office now...Danny asks her if he can make a phone call...Christine doesnt mind, as long as he locks up after he leaves. When Christine is gone.....Danny telephones Phyllis to ask if he can see the baby...but Phyllis isnt home...and Joanie tells him its okay. Danny then asks Joanie to let Phyllis know that he's on his way.


The Newman family and Sharon arrive at the courthouse. Nick is bought in after everyone has been seated. The prosecution tells the judge that Nick has been found guilty, so now he pay for his crime. The judge turns to John and Mitchell...and asks them if anything is going to be said before the sentencing. Mitchell tells the courtroom that both Nick’s parents want to say something. The judge allows for this to happen.


Phyllis arrives home shortly after Danny's phone call. Joanie gives her the message about Danny arriving any minute. When Joanie turns to go and get the baby....Phyllis stops her...and tells her to take the rest of the day off...she can handles things from now on. When Joanie leaves...Phyllis telephones Peter Garret...and asks him to stop by and visit her. Peter agrees..and tells her he will be right over. When Peter gets there, Phyllis has changed into a sexy outfit...and has little Danny waiting and ready for her next plan. She asks him for coffee..then asks him to hold the baby while she is gone. As Phyllis walks out...the doorbell rings.


Victor Newman stands up in front of the judge...and pleads for his son to be set free. "Your honour....I believe in the American Justice System....but I also believe that the prosecution has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt...and that has not been done here. Your honour....I ask you to look at the trial transcripts again...and realise that my son Nicholas Newman is not guilty...and should be set free....please."


Nikki Newman stands up in court, and begs the judge to set her son free as well. "Your honour...Nicholas has been bought up to know right from wrong...he would never do such a horrible crime...and he has let his innocence be known right from the start of this trial... you must believe him...he is not capable of such a thing." "Your honour...I dont know if you have any children.....but as a mother.....please set him free....Nick has suffered enough because of this...he is innocent...beyond a reasonable doubt."


The judge thanks Nick's parents for speaking up about their son..and asks Nick if he has anything to say. Nick stands up and tells the judge that first..he wants to say something to his family. "Mom...dad...I thankyou for what you have said today....I'm sorry about putting you all through this....I love you...and thank you for standing behind me." "Sharon, I love you very much....I thankyou for helping me cope with all this....without you by my side, I would never of made it." Then Nick turns to the judge and tells him that he is innocent..and always has been....and that his mom was right...his parents have taught him right from wrong...and he knows that violence is not the way to handle things..but discussion is.


Phyllis answers the door..and sees Danny standing there. Danny is looking at Phyllis strangely. "Well Phyllis...arent you going to let me in." Phyllis smiles at Danny and tells him that she did not know he was coming over. Danny asks her if she got the message from Joanie..but Phyllis says no. Phyllis then invites Danny inside...and Danny is stunned to see a strange man holding his son. When Phyllis introduces the two men, Danny asks Peter if he can have back his son. Peter agrees...and Danny asks to speak with Phyllis alone. Danny asks Phyllis if he could have some time alone with his son....and not have a stranger watch over him. Danny tells Phyllis that he will take the baby to his place, if Phyllis wanted some time alone with Peter...but Phyllis says no....she will work something out. Phyllis goes to Peter..and apologises to him...but Peter tells her that he understands, and will see her later.


Christine and Paul are having lunch at Gina's and waiting for Mary Williams to arrive. Christine is nervous to tell Mary that they have set a wedding date once again. Paul tries to calm Christine down..and tells her that she is not to blame for any of this. "Chris, my mother has never liked anyone of my girlfriends." Christine laughs and tells Paul should she be flattered by that statement. Then Christine goes off to powder her nose.


Mary Williams arrives...and is happy to be spending some time alone with her son. As Paul is about to tell her that they are not alone....in walks Christine. Mary is angry that she wasnt told about this...and walks up to leave. Paul stops her, and tells her to sit down...both he and Christine want to try and work things out...and that they have some news to share with her. Mary sits down...as Paul tells her that Christine is pregnant. Mary is in a state of shock...and can hardly utter a word. "Thats right mom, Christine is pregnant...and we have decided that if its a girl..we will name her Mary." Mary is still too shocked to speak...but Christine punches Paul..and tells him to stop. Its then that Mary realises that her son was joking with her...but Mary isnt happy about it.

"This case is adjourned."

tells the doctor that Amy is very important to his son's future.

now..its obvious you hate the man." Mary Jo tells Jill that she thinks Rick is trying to worm his way into the Abbott family...and Ashleys bed. "Jill..you dont understand...never underestimate Rick...he's evil, and I need all the help that I can get." Jill tells Mary Jo that she can be just as evil as Rick too, and now maybe the man has finally met his match.


Paul and Christine tell Victor about their trip to Madison. They tell him that Matt Clarke did in fact buy a gun in Madison...and it was all done illegaly. Victor pleads with Paul to get closer on that angle, and asks Christine to spend more time with Amy...because Amy seems to trust Christine

more. Christine tells Victor that she will be glad too.


Dr Hemming asks Amy why she hasnt been taking her medication. "Amy...the other day, you called me your friend...and a friend wouldnt do anything to harm you." "I promise you Amy, that the medication may help you...but it

certainly wont harm you...I would never do that to you." Amy just sits by the window...gazing out into the snow.


Victor arrives at the ranch. "Victor...I'm glad you came by so soon....I want you to take me to the prison...I want to see our son." Victor seats down..and tells Nikki that Nick has requested that nobody come to see him...especially his mother, and sister...and also Sharon. "Nikki...please

try to understand Nick...he doesnt want you to see him like this...I had a hard time seeing him myself." Nikki starts to cry. "Victor...how can I help my son...if he wont even let me see him....how can I help him." Victor holds Nikki while she cries.


Just as Christine is about to leave to visit Amy...Danny stops by. "Chris...I need to have a minute of your time...please." Christine hesitates..then decides to let Danny in. "I just came from seeing Catherine...she gave me something that my father wanted me to have...and since it concerns you, I thought that you might like to see it." Christine is puzzled...then Danny pulls out the letter, and gives it to her. Christine starts to read the letter that Rex wrote to his son. As Christine reads on..she realises that Rex's wish for his son was for him and her to be reunited once again..and maybe have a baby of their own. Christine starts to cry..and puts the letter down on the table..without reading it all. Danny picks it up..and finishes the letter for her. "Danny....I'm so sorry....I would do anything for Rex, but this is one request that will never come true." Christine starts to cry more and more...soon Danny is

holding her in his arms. When Christine realises what is happening..she pulls away. Danny looks into her eyes. "Christine...my father was right...there is something special between us..and you cant deny that, no matter how hard you try." Then Danny walks away.


"Amy...I think its about time you started to remember little things about yourself." "Of all the people that I have spoken with...they talk about a very pretty and popular girl..who loved and lived life to the fullest...now that girl isnt with us anymore...but I want to try and get her back...will you help me." Amy turns to look at Dr Hemming. "Help you....how." "Amy...whats your last name." Amy just sits and stares at the doctor. "I dont understand, last name." Dr Hemming smiles at Amy. "Amy everyone has a last name...whats yours." Amy sits there..and tries to remember. "Amy...my name is Amy....Amy... Wilson." Dr Hemming is stunned...."What did you say." Amy repeats it once again...my name is Amy Wilson. Dr Hemming tells Amy that she's right. Amy is overjoyed...and then turns to look at the pills beside her bed. "Its time." Amy stands up and goes, and takes the pills. "You said this could help me, and not harm me." Dr Hemming nods her head...."yes Amy...thats right...I wont ever lie to you."
