Tricia found "Carter's" pills and confronted him about them. Ryan told Tricia he felt they shouldn't be living as a married couple anymore. Paul told Christine he wasn't going to put his life on hold for her. Christine went to Hong Kong alone. The Glo by Jabot and Brash & Sassy promotions were both big successes. Victoria thought Phyllis should sleep with Jack in order to scoop out the competition. Jack felt vulnerable to Phyllis, and he felt he knew what kind of information he could scoop out of her. Ashley agreed to let Brad adopt Abby to make her his daughter legally. Malcolm asked Alex out on a date. Marissa quit working for Diane because she sensed there was no future there, since Diane was about to give birth. Diane went into labor and had a baby son.
January 8 to 12, 2001
Diane had her baby, a little boy named Christian Victor Newman. Victor demanded a paternity test. Nikki went to the Newman penthouse to offer Victor support. Ashley and Brad put their legal notice for Abby's adoption in the paper. Alex and Malcolm went on a dinner date, and they noticed Phyllis having a date with Jack, as well. Phyllis told Jack about Victoria's scheme to get information out of him, and she admitted she didn't play those games anymore. Nina and Tomas were surprised Paul hadn't gone to Hong Kong with Christine. Ryan decided to leave Tricia, move out of the apartment, and set up temporary residence with Neil. Olivia decided that Neil was a better father figure for Nate than Malcolm, and she tried to establish a relationship between Neil and Nate. Nick offered "Carter" the management position at the third Crimson Lights coffeehouse, but "Carter" refused.
January 15 to 19, 2001
Nina and Tomas agreed to work on the movie together. Tomas was still frustrated he couldn't put the right words into place. Nina arranged for Phillip to stay with Jill while she and Tomas worked on the movie. Mary thought that Christine's decision to move to Hong Kong instead of having Paul's child had been unforgivable. Ashley and Brad had the wedding night they had always planned. Victor finally admitted to Diane that even while they had been married, he had never wanted to have kids with her. Jill admonished Jack for not being there for his son, Keemo. Jack and Nikki remembered the child they had lost many years before, and they envied Diane and Ashley for having babies. Jack wished he had another kid of his own. Tricia almost committed suicide, but "Carter" rescued her. "Carter" thought Tricia was even more unstable because she wanted to leave town. Victoria called Keith to talk to him about Tricia. Ryan and Victoria got into a heated argument, and Victoria felt she might have damaged her relationship with Ryan.
January 22 to 26, 2001
Jack met the child who had received his baby's heart. Little Jack called Jack and Nikki his guardian angels and thanked them for a second chance at life, since they had donated their son's organs. Phillip stayed at the Chancellor estate while Nina and Tomas worked on their screenplay. "Carter" tried to rape Sharon while she was passed out after she'd consumed a margarita laced with ecstasy. Nick returned home and didn't like seeing his wife in an inebriated state. "Carter" told Sharon he would seriously think about the management position. Paul angrily told Mary to butt out of his marriage so he and Christine could sort out their problems together. Tomas' ego took over the screenplay project. Tomas told Nina that without his help, Nina's book wouldn't have been as good as it was. Nina felt crushed. Nina planned to go alone to Los Angeles and work with the movie producer and screenwriter. Mac tried to convince Billy not to go to the rave, since there would be drugs there. Mac remembered when Billy had almost lost his life after drinking too much. Brittany told Mac to leave Billy alone. Ashley asked Neil and Olivia to join the Carlton family for dinner. The paternity test results for Diane's baby were in. Diane reminded Phyllis of the schemes Phyllis had pulled in order to convince Danny he was the father of little Daniel, and she added that Phyllis was an unfit parent.
January 29 to February 2, 2001
Victor informed Diane that the paternity test results proved that he was not the father of Diane's baby, and he told a shocked Diane that she would be leaving town, never to return. Matt planted ecstasy in a coffee bag at the coffeehouse to set up Nick, and Jordan made the buy from an unwitting Nick. Tomas told Nina that he wouldn't be there when she returned from Los Angeles. He said that her success would make him happy, but they were better off without each other. Jack told Phyllis that he thought they should break up, but they ended up making love instead.

February 5 to 9, 2001
Victor threatened Diane and told her that she had one week to move out of Genoa City, or she would face criminal charges. Diane attacked Nikki with a letter opener in an effort to get Nikki to admit changing the sperm samples, but Ashley walked in and broke up their fight. Diane and Leanna plotted to crush Victor. Brittany wanted Billy to prove his love to her. Billy gave Brittany the ring he had once given to Mac. Mac saw the exchange and was devastated. Brad's adoption hearing for Abby was only one week away, just before Abby's christening. Phyllis and Jack continued their romance, and she felt it was time they go public with their relationship. Ashley continued to pressure Jack to find someone and settle down, but Jack hesitated to name his mystery woman. Ashley asked Olivia and Neil to be Abby's godparents.
February 12 to 16, 2001
Diane decided to leave Genoa City, and she shared heartfelt goodbyes with Marissa and Michael. Nikki was relieved that Diane had skipped town. Victor wanted to get to the bottom of who was responsible for switching the sperm samples. "Carter" was in deep trouble because the ecstasy pills he had gotten from a dealer in Milwaukee had been a bad batch. Jordan took some and ended up in the hospital. Mac saved J.T.'s life by convincing him not to take the pills. Ashley set up Jack with Bunny Hutchinson for Abby's christening. Phyllis was not thrilled about Jack's date, but Jack assured her that he was enthralled by his relationship with Phyllis. Keith arrived in town and blasted Ryan for destroying Tricia, and Tricia added that she felt Ryan had abandoned her when she had needed Ryan the most. Keith caught Victoria and Ryan kissing and was not impressed. Larry worried that he could be implicated if the kids spilled that "Carter" had supplied the ecstasy at Crimson Lights.
February 19 to 23, 2001
"Carter" went to visit Jordan at Genoa City Memorial and made sure Jordan didn't get out of there alive by turning off Jordan's respirator. Jordan's friend, Mark, wouldn't speak to the detective without a lawyer present. Abby's christening went well. Bunny and Jack had a good time, and Phyllis tried to crash the party. Phyllis locked Bunny in the closet at the chapel and paid a visit to the Abbott house. Phyllis hoped she hadn't screwed things up with Jack. Nikki admitted to Victor that she was responsible for the sperm sample switch, and Victor thought about pressing charges against Nikki. Brittany was jealous of Mac's attempts to save Billy, and she felt Mac was causing trouble in Brittany and Billy's relationship. Olivia hoped Neil could take the scenic route on their way home from the reception. Victoria and Ryan had an unpleasant run-in with Keith. Larry called the D.A.'s office and revealed some secret information about Nick. Nick planned a memorial for Jordan at Crimson Lights.
February 26 to March 2, 2001
Jack was irritated with Phyllis because she had crashed the christening party. Jack overheard a message from Victoria, who had instructed Phyllis to spy on Jack to get information about Jabot's spring web campaign. Phyllis told Jack that she cared for him deeply and that she had no intention of spying on him. Phyllis had a non-compete clause in her contract with Newman, and she couldn't work for six months if she left the company. The police got a search warrant and found drugs at Crimson Lights in a coffee bag. Nick and Sharon were stopped at the airport for questioning, and they had to delay their flight to Puerto Rico. Keith and Ryan collaborated to help Tricia get well. Keith suggested to Tricia that if she didn't cooperate, they would sign her into a mental hospital. Nikki called her detective to find out who the father of Diane's baby was. Nikki was surprised to hear the results. Nate told Malcolm he wished he could see Malcolm more often. Alex confronted Olivia about shutting Nate out of Malcolm's life. Olivia was defensive, and she walked out on Alex.

Isabella told Paul her husband had beaten her. Paul agreed to take on the case. "Carter" told Tricia he wasn't going anywhere for some time, but he swore to himself that he would get revenge on Sharon and Nick for what they had done to him years before. Malcolm threatened to tell Nate that Olivia was pushing Malcolm away from Nate on purpose because she thought Malcolm hadn't been a good father. Tricia decided to hide with "Carter" so that Keith and Ryan wouldn't try to follow her. J.T. laid a kiss on Mac, and Billy and Brittany happened to notice; it drove Billy mad. Brittany threatened to break up with Billy because Mac constantly hovered around them. Paul thought about visiting Christine in order to resolve his marital issues. Michael found out Christine would be back from her business trip early, and he went home to pack and go to Hong Kong before Paul did. Jack told Jabot employees about Brash & Sassy's spring campaign, and he implored them to create a plan to beat the competition.
March 12 to 16, 2001
Nick's bail was denied, and he was retained in jail. "Carter" made Tricia promise not to tell a single soul where she was while they were still in Genoa City. Victoria and Ryan took off for Boston to find Megan. Malcolm was still upset about Olivia's decision, and he vowed that Olivia would get her just deserts. Billy had a dream about Brittany, but the girl in his dreams turned out to be Mac. The Glo by Jabot kids planned to go on vacation for their spring break. Brad thought it was a good time for him and Ashley to have the honeymoon they'd never taken. Mary ran into Phyllis, who spilled the beans that Michael was already in Hong Kong.

Victor asked Paul to get a picture of Matt Clark and send a copy to every plastic surgeon in the Midwest. Phyllis was devastated to learn that Jack had been spying on her to get information for Jabot. Phyllis said she would never speak to Jack again. Alex told Malcolm that Neil wasn't supportive of Olivia's decision about Malcolm and Nate. Tricia found "Carter's" drugs, which she thought could be the same ones "Carter" had used to drug Tricia the first night she'd slept with him. Ryan and Victoria came up empty-handed while visiting Megan in Boston. Mac found out Brittany had lied about sleeping with Billy on the last night of the summer campaign, so Brittany made an excuse to go to the Abbott pool house to destroy the evidence against her.

April 2 to 6, 2001
Isabella was attacked by a man who she believed her husband had hired. Paul offered her temporary shelter at his place. Michael advised Jack to hold on to his feelings for Phyllis and give her some time. Jack sent Phyllis numerous bouquets of flowers and admitted he had made a terrible mistake. Jack was in love with Phyllis and wanted no other woman but her. Mamie suggested that Malcolm pretend to run into Mamie and Nate at Gina's so Malcolm and Nate could spend time together. Victor pressured "Carter" to leave town as soon as possible, because Victor didn't trust "Carter" around Sharon. "Carter" was furious and asked Sharon to meet him to devise a plan to get Victor off "Carter's" back. Ryan and Victoria went out for a nice dinner and ended up back at the tack house to rehash their old feelings; they discussed how Victoria had changed since her marriage to Cole. Tricia called Ryan on his cell phone. Ryan knew Tricia was okay, but he still worried about her situation and felt she was in terrible danger. The ecstasy pills that Brittany had bought from J.T. at the rave linked Nick to the drugs, and his chances of bail were eliminated. Raul continued to feel thirsty, and he almost passed out due to dehydration. Rianna was frustrated about Raul's attitude, but she cared deeply for him and wanted to help him out.
April 9 to 13, 2001
Phyllis gave Jack an ultimatum: if Jack wanted their relationship as much as she did, then Jack needed to trust her with his family secrets and the access code to his computer. Katherine suggested that she take Mac on a trip to Hawaii over spring break. J.T. asked Mac if he could go along. Paul told Isabella that if her husband were released from jail, she would be more at risk; therefore, Paul wanted her to continue staying at Paul's apartment. Tricia called a pharmaceutical company to have one of "Carter's" pills analyzed. Alex told Malcolm that he might have more rights to Nate than Olivia realized. Malcolm and Nate met for a brief time as Gina's, thanks to Mamie. Nikki advised Jack to fight for Phyllis' affection and regain Phyllis' trust. Nick thought he could get the truth out of Larry.

Mac allowed J.T. to go along with her on the trip to Hawaii. Rianna was worried about Mac and J.T., and she gave Mac advice about sex. Michael planned a trip to Fiji for Christine after she was done with her case. Billy and Rianna searched online for an ailment matching Raul's symptoms; there was a high possibility that it was diabetes. Later, Raul was admitted to the hospital. Paul remembered the good times he'd had with Christine. Paul opened up to Isabella about his marital problems. Raul's fate was in Olivia's hands. Ryan realized that Tricia could have broken into the Newman Enterprises mainframe to create the fake shipping label that had been used to frame Nick. Victoria admitted she was involved with Ryan.
April 23 to 27, 2001

Olivia remembered that Billy and Rianna had mentioned that Raul had seen two doctors but had received no diagnosis of his condition. Christine called Paul from Hong Kong. Paul was upset Christine hadn't made the effort to meet him halfway in order to spend time together. Christine decided to work on the case a bit more and then take a nice vacation. Paul was worried that his marriage wouldn't last much longer. Tricia met with Michael to discuss what she had learned about "Carter's" mysterious pills.

Malcolm wondered what things would be like if he and Alex decided to go to the next level in their relationship. Neil told Malcolm that he would testify for him in court for visitation rights with Nate. Olivia missed Neil and felt lonely without him in her life. Brittany wanted J.T. to spread fake rumors about sleeping with Mac. Victoria and Paul rescued Ryan from "Carter's" apartment. Victor saved Sharon from "Carter's" clutches.

Tricia and Matt were found in a car at the bottom of a ravine. Tricia went into surgery, and Matt was in critical condition. The D.A. allowed Nick to visit Matt in his hospital bed to prove that Matt had set him up. However, Matt, with his dying breaths, told Nick that he had raped Sharon on their margarita night. After Nick called for help for Matt, who was gasping for breath, Matt pulled his breathing tube from his neck. Matt told Nick that he had finally won, and then he died, letting the police find Nick holding the breathing tube in his hands. Phyllis moved in with Jack. Brittany discovered that "Queenclean" was Mac and told Billy, and Billy confronted Mac.
May 14 to 18, 2001
Nick told Victor that Matt had pulled out his own breathing tube and had placed it in Nick's hands to frame Nick for Matt's murder. Paul dug up some evidence from the hospital to link Matt to Jordan's death. Larry pleaded the Fifth Amendment in court and refused to provide any more information, as it could implicate him in Matt's crimes. Nick begged Larry to testify and to give evidence of Matt's dealings to help exonerate Nick from both murder charges. Malcolm threatened to take Olivia to court to get visitation with Nate. Both Mamie and Neil agreed to testify on Malcolm's behalf and not Olivia's. Jack advised Phyllis that to win the blessing of John and the Abbott family, Phyllis had to just be herself and let things happen naturally. Phyllis advised Sean that dating Jill could lead to trouble. Sean told Phyllis to back off and let him handle his own relationships. Brittany told Mac that she had told Billy who Queenclean really was. Billy and Raul became friends again, since Billy had given Raul a second chance at life.

Tricia signed herself out of the hospital. Tricia returned home to her apartment, and she thought that Ryan was still her loving husband. Mac pretended that she had made a copy of the tape in order to get Brittany to tell the truth. Brittany admitted that she hadn't slept with Billy in the pool house the previous summer. Nick and Nikki pleaded with the judge to reduce Larry's sentence. The judge granted Larry time served plus the maximum probation period. Raul shoved Mac in an elevator with Billy, and the elevator stopped between floors. Neil admitted he found Alex attractive, but he wouldn't act on impulses because Alex was dating Malcolm.

Mac decided that she wanted to be involved -- in front of the camera this time. Brittany asked Jill about Mac's secret. Victoria asked Brittany to give her a call. Jack considered blackmailing Jill into backing off of Mac by using Jill's relationship with Sean. Sean and Jill made love, and he shared some of his past with her.

Malcolm was delighted, until he realized that such a move would look bad for his case with Nate. Olivia refused to let Nate stay with Malcolm while she went out of town, but Mamie promised to help Malcolm visit with Nate while Olivia was gone. Olivia got the goods on Lawson Medical's recruiting tactics and agreed to testify against them. Paul kissed Isabella passionately before he left to search James's cousin's cabin, where he found nude photos of Isabella and evidence incriminating James.
