  • Drunk history recap.

    9.7
    In a thrilling a history-filled episode, we got an amazing amount of funny and chilling scenes with Nikki retelling the history of her life with Victor while being on the phone with Nikki. I enjoyed every second of Nikki's drunk ramblings. Character-wise, it was no shock that Nikki fell off the wagon. I love the fact that everything makes sense these days.



    Also, beside Melody Thomas Scott's great portrayal of Nikki today, we also got to see exactly why Jeanne Cooper won an Emmy this year. She did amazing work as Katherine in this episode, and it reminded me of all of those amazing days of this show. While Nikki was rambling, people one after one learned about Victor's death, and it had an impact on each one of them.



    Jack's line "I won't believe Victor is dead until I see his corpse" was memorable. Neil, Karen, Phyllis, Jack and Sharon all did great in the episode too. Overall, this was one amazing episode that will certainly go as a classic in Y&R history.moreless

    • Nikki: Cool. Slogans. This is a perfect time to talk slogans, and I am ready. Here we go. "My name is Nikki, and I'm an alcoholic, but please, please love me anyway, people."
      Kay: Nikki, you are loved, and you know that.
      Nikki: "Let go and let vodka." (Laughs)
      Kay: Darling, please stop.
      Nikki: Oh, "One drink at a time." How about that? Katherine, you are just no fun. Here's--here's a great one. This is a game. You are the sponsor, and I'm the drunk, okay? (Sniffles) But you know, before we start this game... (Laughs) This is my absolute favorite slogan. Here it comes. "Take what you want. Leave the rest."

    • Nikki: (To Katherine) Well, you know, Victor always went far above and ahead of everybody else in everything he did, like that time I was shot. Oh, my God. I... (Chuckles) Nobody expected me to make it. I sure didn't, and he and Diane... bitch. I always hated her... they'd just come back from their little honeymoon, but somehow he convinced her to step aside so that he could marry me again in the hospital... (Clicks tongue) 'Cause he knew that that was my dying wish. He sure did. Oh, he loved me, Katherine, so much.

    • Kay: Nikki, you sound drunk.
      Nikki: Do you know how to say vodka in Spanish? El vodka. (Laughs) Or I have also discovered that one can simply point.
