family realize that he is only using Brad and he knows "what a treacherous S.O.B. that Brad is?" Victor asks Nikki how she feels about
Brad. She hedges the question and changes the subject. She wants the two of them to take a trip someplace. "Don't you remember
what happen the last trip?" Victor asks. Nikki then asks Victor if he ever thinks about quitting the business all together. "You must be
kidding!" he replies. He promises to spend more time with her after the deal with Jack is over. He heads upstairs and! Nikki promises

there and away from Genoa City! Jill overhears this comment as she walks up to the pool. She announces that she needs to talk to
Billy alone, so Raul leaves them to make a phone call home. Jill says that she is unhappy and Billy retorts with a smart remark. She lets
him know that it isn't necessary for him to tell everyone how much he hates being with his mom. "Whatever!" he tosses back at her.
She smells his breath; "You've been drinking!"
Mac and Kay discuss Jill. Mac wants Kay and her to "get out together." Kay tells her that
her father grew up in this house. Mac asks what he was like. Kay tells her he was much like her and gives her some of the details of
their rocky relationship while he was growing up and how he had changed when he came back after leaving for several years. She
credits Brock with saving her live by helping her to give up drinking. Mac wonders that if her father was this changed, caring person,
why didn't he write to his own mother in the last ten years. Mac is tired and goes up to bed. Kay tries to reach Brock in India again,
but gets nowhere. Jill bursts into the room and accuses Mac of corrupting Billy by giving him liquor. Kay defends Mac and warns Jill

comfortable with Callie; he needs her and doesn't want to lose her. He puts the necklace around her neck and whispers "please don't
go." They embrace and kiss.
