It's Memorial Day in Genoa City and the Newman's are having a party at the ranch. Sharon calls to invite Tony, Grace and Cassie. Tony says sorry, Cassie doesn't feel good but thanks. Grace gets really angry at Tony for declining the invitation. They rehash about telling Sharon who Cassie really is. Grace and Cassie end up leaving for the party.
Sharon is telling Doris about how this day is reminding her of her loss; the loss of her baby that she gave up. Doris tells her to stop dwelling, you can't change the past.
Josh is called to the hospital so he will miss the party. Victor arrives. Hope and Jr. have other plans and aren't there. Cole and Victoria spend the day in bed with Miguel bringing them room service.
That's about it for today folks. They all gathered around the pool, of course, and there was tons of food, even though it was just Nick, Sharon, baby Noah (now he'll eat a lot), Doris, Grace, Cassie, Victor and Nikki. Maybe on Tuesday's show all these strange people will have arrived to dance, swim and eat the food!
Nothing new today except we find out the cause of the fire that killed Sasha.
Tony shows up at the Newman party and tries to convince Grace to tell Sharon who Cassie really is. blah blah blah Victor and Nikki talk about Hope and look longingly at each other. Cole and Victoria still in bed. Then they finally show up at the party.
Tricia overhears Jill and Keith talking about Ryan. Jill is explaining about Ryan's past year with Nina, and their separation. Tricia goes to see Ryan and asks him to explain. He does and she leaves, telling Ryan, "I love you."
Chris and Paul speculate some more about Sasha, the fire, and Phyllis. They call 'Jeff the fireman' again and learn that the fire was started by a cigarette. Sasha was drunk, lit a smoke, dropped it into some papers and it started the fire. No foul play.
Danny consoles Phyllis about Sasha. Later, Phyllis rants at Joni. No, I didn't torch the place but I can say that I *am* glad that Sasha is dead. blah blah blah
Dru is summoned by Liv to be questioned about telling 'her man' about the PID and how she probably won't get pregnant. They argue. Later, Neil visits Liv on cloud nine. His life is so great. Yours could be too Liv. Why don't you marry Malcolm. Later, Nate asks mommy if she likes Malcolm, why doesn't she marry him? Nate sets up Malcolm and Liv. Liv tells Malcolm about Nate's question. Malcolm says it's not such a bad idea.
Chris and Paul discuss 'Jeff's' fire conclusion and think that maybe they were wrong about Phyllis........Phyllis is at the pawn shop with the money, she needs her ring. I've got to get it back. My husband is taking us on a trip. It's what I've dreamed about.blah blah blah......The clerk finally let's her have the ring back (just to shut her up) for what he paid her for it. Later, Malcolm visits Phyllis wondering about her 180 on her outlook on her marriage. Did you tell Danny? No, just know Malcolm, everything is just great. You don't have to worry about me anymore. Are you sure this is over with this Sasha person Phyllis? You're right, there is one loose end. I've got to go........She visits Chris, fishing for information that Sasha may have given Chris. Phyllis is relieved to discover that Chris doesn't know anything. Later, Chris tells Paul about her Phyllis encounter and they vow to dig until they discover just what's up with Phyllis and Sasha.
Jill talks to Ryan about Nina and Tricia......Tricia is telling Megan that she is still in love with Ryan. So what if he is married. He is now separated. I don't want any advice from my little sister!
Diane hooks up with an angry Jack at some bar. She reluctantly gets him to dance and they end up making out on the dance floor.
Chris, Paul and Lynn call all the tabloids trying to see if Sasha contacted any of them. Chris is trying the last one, the World Inquisitor. She talks to a guy who fishes for info as much as Chris does. He says he hasn't talked to any Sasha Green. They hang up. The guy tells his co-worker that he thinks that girl on the phone was a competitor. Chris tells Paul and Lynn that he thinks the guy knows more than he is saying. "It was something in the guys voice, like he'd said her name before." (My nomination for Thursday SLOP (stupidest line of the program) award. *like he'd said her name before?* give me a break.)
Dru visits Malcolm at the studio. Malcolm says he thinks that he is engaged. Liv shows up and they make it official. Dru can't wait to tell Neil.
Jack and Ashley talk about Diane and Kurt. Later, Jack is telling Victor about surprising Diane for lunch and then about her mystery client. Jack arrives at Diane's office. Lunch sounds great as long as we eat in, Diane says. They begin to dance and kiss, kiss, kiss. Just then, a *huge* arrangement of flowers arrives for Diane. The card isn't signed. Probably your client! Jack walks......Diane shows up at Victor's office.
Previously, Hope overheard Victor's phone conversation with Diane. Hope and Victor have words. Hope arrives at the clinic for work. A guy on the street hassles Hope. Kurt saves the day. Kurt says maybe this isn't the job for you, I need a bouncer, not office help. Please Kurt, don't take this away from me. I need this. blah, blah, blah..... Victor does this.......what I need is to be held and touched. She goes to Kurt and *sees* his face with her hands. They kiss. Ashley watches through the window.
Hope tells Victor she thinks it's time she got a place of her own. She needs to move forward with her life.
Ashley tells Kurt she saw him and Hope kissing. Let's see, that's three for her and three for me. Her psychoanalysis of Kurt....you have a problem trusting women so you are stringing two of them along. It's understandable after your recent experience. Ashley is going to do what she can to make Kurt trust again.
Chris gets a letter from Michael. Same stuff as before, I'm sorry, I'm glad you're happy, etc. The parole board is meeting, still unsure whether to parole him. Michael's lawyer tells Michael that the original job fell through. Now you've got a job as a paralegal with a firm in.....Genoa City. Michael says he just can't do that. It would cause Christine more stress. Maybe it would just be best if I don't get paroled. (Maybe he really has changed?)
Diane accuses Victor of trying to break up her and Jack. You're inserting yourself in my life, trying to send a message to Jack. Victor tells her maybe I am trying to send someone a message, but it's not Jack. Goodbye Miss Jenkins.
Grace is out of money. She tries to get her job back at Jabot. Sorry, we filled your position. Try back after the summer. Tony tells her to call Nick. He can pull some strings. Grace says no, and they proceed to rehash the Cassie/Sharon/Nick stuff.
