    Oops, It's Not My Funeral!

    Friday, November 14 2008
    A ghost finds herself out of place, many past GC residents return, and a surprise appearance shakes things up!

    Marge's ghost sits in the pew of the church where the service will take place and tells the audience that she is the one in the casket up there at the front of the room. She says she always thought she'd go out in an old pine box, and figures that Murphy probably sprung for the nice one. She wonders who will come to her funeral - she sure would like to say goodbye to the regulars from the diner. She wonders if they'll miss her. She notes that you don't really know who your friends are until you're dead. She then tells the audience that she hopes they all keep coming back, because she's always considered them friends!

    As Noah leaves the house, Sharon warns him to call in because she will be checking up on him. Noah snaps at her that he heard her! He leaves, and Jack comes into the room. He tries to talk to her about the situation with Noah, but she tells him that she and Nick are handling it. Jack says Katherine's death has made him see how precious life is - he will do whatever it takes to keep her. Sharon says she's heard it all before. Jack then brings up the fact that Nick was in Paris. Sharon tells him to leave Nick out of it - their problems are due to the fact that he lied to her! He apologizes for hurting her, but she doesn't comment, going over to answer the door. It's Traci and Dina. Jack greets them both and introduces Dina to Sharon. As the women go to freshen up before leaving, the doorbell goes again. Jack answers to find an FBI agent standing there. He tells him it's not a good time, and agrees to come to the D.A.'s office in the morning. Sharon asks who that was, and Jack lies again, saying it was a man who had the wrong house!

    Nick and Phyllis get ready for the funeral and he tells her that last night was really good. She says that will teach him to go to Paris with his ex-wife. He says, "Whoa, whoa. I wanted you there - every minute." Phyllis looks him in the eye and says she was only joking - she doesn't doubt their commitment to one another. She watches him as she talks. Phyllis gets Summer settled with the nanny, and Sharon calls to tell Nick about Noah going out and what she said to him. Daniel and Amber arrive and Nick gets off the phone. Phyllis asks if everything is alright with Noah, and Nick says they should get going. Daniel takes Phyllis aside and asks her to go easy on Amber - she's having a very difficult time with Katherine's death. Phyllis nods.

    At the Chancellor Mansion, Jill asks Chloe kindly how her grandchild is doing. She calls Billy and Cane over to talk to her and says that they need to talk about the will and the business. They are hesitant, but Jill says it's necessary to face it. She announces that she will step into Katherine's shoes immediately and they will both be her right hands! Billy says, "Oh, so I guess I'm getting a promotion!" Cane says the remark was uncalled for, and Jill jumps in to say that until she gets everything sorted out she won't know the role each of them will play. She vows not to make them feel that they can't live up to her expectations, like Katherine did with her. Suddenly, Brock comes in. Jill runs into his arms, saying she's so glad he made it in time. He greets Billy, telling them that Mac couldn't make it, but sends her love to them all. He meets Cane, and remembers 'Kate', who tells him that she changed her name to Chloe. Brock tells Jill that he just spoke to their mother a week ago, and she sounded fine! Jill sobs that she just wishes she had gotten her to see the neurologist sooner! They leave for the service.

    In the GCAC dining room, J.T. and Victoria try to get Nikki to have something to eat. Suddenly, J.T. notices Ashley standing in the doorway. He draws Nikki's attention to her, and Nikki takes a sharp intake of breath, looking expectantly at Ashley. Nikki says she is surprised to see her, and Ash says she wouldn't have missed Katherine's funeral, she was her father's best friend. Nikki asks about Victor, but Ashley is evasive. Nikki asks if he knows about Katherine and whether he is coming to the funeral. Ash warns her to let it go, but Nikki keeps going on about it. Ashley tells her it is none of her concern, and that she should move on.

    At the church, Brock, Jill, Esther, and Chloe are at the front near the casket. Esther assures Chloe that Katherine knew she appreciated the things she did for her. Brock wishes he had come home more often, and Jill wishes she had had time to apologize. Just then, Nina comes in and hugs Brock, saying she's sorry for his loss. Jill turns and greets her too. She asks if Philip is with her, but Nina says he's still in Iraq. Esther spots Nina next and embraces her tearfully. Nina spots Cane, and Esther tells her who he is. Nina notes that he's cute, but he's no Philip. As a lightheaded Nikki enters with Nick, Victoria and their families, Marge's ghost appears again. She looks around wondering who all these people are, and why they're not playing the Perry Como music she wanted at her funeral. She spots Esther and realizes that it's not her funeral - it's for Katherine Chancellor!

    As they all gather around the casket, including now, Danny Romalotti and Gina Roma, whose father, Rex, was once married to Katherine, Marge wonders what is wrong with all these people that they don't know her from their own kin! She starts putting two and two together and realizes that Katherine must still be out there somewhere. She says that Katherine was there for her when she needed her, and now she'll help her! "Hang on Katherine!" Danny moves over to greet Nina and introduces her as a 'dear friend' to Daniel. "This is someone who knew you when you were little." Nina is stunned to see how Daniel has grown. Paul comes in and hugs Nikki, before greeting Danny and Nina. Nina asks about Cricket, but Paul says she's in Europe. Amber walks up to the casket and tells Katherine that she's a little angry with her - she wasn't supposed to go yet and leave her alone. Daniel comes over and puts his arm around her and kisses her hair.

    Nikki approaches the casket and winds up being the last one standing there crying when everyone else takes a seat. Jill approaches her and says she is laying it on a little thick - upstaging her yet again where her mother is concerned! Nikki says she doesn't know where this is coming from, but she doesn't appreciate it, especially today! Jill tersely tells her to wring out her hanky and sit down. At the back of the church, Jack and his family arrive. Ashley also comes in, stopping to greet her sister, brother and Dina, who she is surprised to see. Sharon excuses herself, saying she needs to speak with Nick. As Sharon approaches Nick, Phyllis flashes back in her mind to the kiss that she saw them share!

    Billy approaches Jack and tells him that he got the big speech this morning. Jack says, "Let me guess, Chairman of the Board." Billy confirms it, adding that he feels Jabot should be back with the Abbotts. Sharon tells Nick that Jack is really upset about them seeing one another in Paris. Nick says it's not like they're keeping a secret, but Sharon notes that they weren't exactly transparent either, and all she can think about is Paris. Nick says it was just a kiss, but Sharon shushes him. Phyllis watches wide-eyed, then suddenly turns to talk to Amber. She says having a broken heart really hurts, noting that Amber obviously really loved Katherine. Amber tells her that Katherine was the only one who took her seriously. Phyllis slightly insults Amber, but quickly backtracks, saying it's a bad day for her too. Phyllis tells her that she is her son's girlfriend, and they are kind of stuck with one another. She suggests a truce and they agree on it.

    Mitchell Sherman arrives and Jill introduces him to Billy and Cane. Sherman says that he has scheduled a reading of the will, and that Katherine made some recent changes to it! Jill is concerned, but he won't tell her exactly what is different. Jack beckons Ashley to come and sit with him, but she gives him a funny look and goes to sit alone at the front. Dina thinks it's because of her. Just then, Nikki tells Nick she feels that she's going to be sick. As she stands up in the pew and turns toward the door, Victor appears in the doorway! He strides past Nikki and his children and joins Ashley in the front pew! Nikki nearly faints, and Jack scowls.

    Out by the bridge where the car went through the guardrail, Marge's ghost frantically searches for Katherine. When she finally locates her, she is face-down in the ravine and unresponsive. Marge fades away, and Katherine suddenly moves her hand!

    Next on The Young and the Restless:

    As Victoria and Nick watch their father, Ashley whispers to Victor that he's being stared at!

    Brock loses his composure as he gives the eulogy at his mother's funeral.

    Murphy finds Katherine and thinks it's Marge. He gets her to wake up!

    I'm just about sick of one Jill Foster Abbot Chancellor whatever. She is just mad because EVERYONE else was closer and treated her mother better than she did. Only Jill would think that someone was trying to "upstage" her at her mother's funeral. How sad and pathetic.

    Of course Billy & Jack are more concerned about getting Jabot than the death at hand...

    Victor is still a major butthead - and that's not the word I wanted to use. Bypassing his family members as if he's just been at the pub for a few hours. Is everybody in GC completely nuts?

    Jack will NEVER stop lying to Sharon, I hope she packs and leaves TOMORROW.

    I'm not sure I'm interested in watching the drama unfold as Katherine goes to live with Marge's friend. I'm just not into it. Maybe I'm just a little blah today.

    Well, Nikki really stepped in a steaming pile this time, didn't she? She sent Ashley to Victor...what exactly did she think was going to happen?

    Adam ought to be wetting his pants right about now.

    I feel badly for Esther, Nikki, and Amber...the most geniune folks in the room (in their grief).

    Neil/Karen - dullsville.

    Tyra/Cop guy - ??? - just as dull.

    Lily, Olivia, Anna, and Devon haven't had airtime but just for the record, they're dull too.

    I wonder whose lights caused Katherine to run off the road and if we'll ever find out.

    I need a pick me up. Perhaps this is all just way tooo sad for little old me.

    O.K. so does this mean that Kay is going to opt for the simple life and take Marges place at the diner til she sees how bad Jill and company screw up?
    Didn't we do this story line with Victor? That's how we have Ah-Damn.

    I think Katherine might really think she is Marge. With her mind being the way it was.

    Posted by Deneb at Friday, November 14 2008 03:04 AM

    I hope that Katherine left Chancellor Industries to Nikki - because she was more like a daughter than her own daughter Jill. It would only be temprary since we know Katnerine is still alive, but enough to make a point!!

    And I LOVED seeing Phylis' rage in yesterdays episode! I am a "Sharon/Nick" fan, and liked the old Phylis. I also believe that Jack is Summer's father. The only reason Nick kept that little tidbit to himself is because he was still mouring Cassie, and Sharon had just miscarried their baby. He wanted another child, and in his eyes, this was one he could have. JMO!!

    i agree with cowboys fan.
    I've been thinking Mrs C is actually going to think she's Marge for a bit. Until ofcourse, nothing adds up for a while and she meets some people she knows etc etc maybe even Mac will walk into he diner and be like "Ohohoh! Grandma!"

    because we know how ynr love repeating SLs :/

    Funny That Marge's Spirit Showed Up At Her Own Funeral, But Everyone's there for Kay!

    Oops, it's Not My Funeral, Marge says to her ghostly self.
    Poor Marge this time around, i'd like to see Jill get hers 2day please. (lol)
    I love the fact that Marge's ghost didn't give up on Kay.
    She wasn't going 2 stop until she'd actually found her.

    I love seeing all the old cast return. Brock is great! I hope Mrs.C left jabot to anyone other than Jill...she is a terrible daughter & greedy just like Chloe Tramp. Maybe Brock or Nikki? That would be great. She knows Cane can't run things totally but she accepted him in theposition. I wonder who she left her stock to? Her stock is the key to who takes over Jabot you know.
    Victor... What an A-hole. What Father could just stroll in to a funeral & walk past your children & friends without staying a word like you are invisible!! Ashly is high & mighty now since she slept with her precious Victor & now everyone is to stay away & leave him alone so she can NOW have him. My God..she is the LAST & I mean LAST pick for him. He has jilted her & passed her by with everyone........She is a good ace in the hole though isn't she! Hand in there Ash & keep chewing on that bone he throws you every once in awhile girl!!! Nikki tries to help & get him back with his family & he agains finds another woman to take the place of another. CAN'T HE EVER JUST BE SINGLE OR ALONE????? Try a Therapist or something...Geesh o Pete!
    Jack & Adam need to be sent to prison...Sharon & Nick need to sleep together & get back what they once had.
    Chloe Hoe..needs to come out in the open with her ridiculous game she has played & please quit having everyone there paid off o.k.? NOT REAL.. She is a joke. Lilly & Cane need to reunite & be one...great couple & don't deserve all the kaos they are having put their way. Billy take Chloe Hoe & get rid of one cares! If anyone out there thinks that lieing B has changed FORGET IT...HOES DON'T CHANGE THEIR WAYS...SORRY!
    Where is Michael & Loren? Don't they care?
    Where is Gloworm? She may still try to get the stock too!
    Boreing..............Lets get some action on the show!!!

    Posted by jeanbean10 at Friday, November 14 2008 05:17 AM

    I know the soaps are NOT realistic usually, however, this ghost thing is so ridiculously stupid!
    Ya mean to tell me that even tho Kay and Marge look so much alike that they don't recognize that something isin't right and it is NOT Kay..maybe a scar or a birthmark of some kind? Please..was there even a positive identity made?
    and why does this woman look exactly like Kay? She is not related is she?

    I missed seeing the rest of the posts yesterday when I asked who Murphy was? Who IS he?

    I didn't see the show but the reunion alone must have been fun.
    Fun for the actors too I am sure!

    Oh I hope this crazy stuff doesn't drag on as it is way over the top writers!

    I agree that Jill is a real jerk! Like she thinks she was so popular in her mother's life? She makes her life miserable.

    I hope Victor straightens things out and Adam and Jack get in big trouble.
    As for Asley and Victor? Not sure how I feel about that whole mess.
    I think I would like to see he and Nikki back together..there were lots of reasons Nikki left him..he needs to change!

    I'm curious. Why didn't anyone notice that "katherine" wasn't wearing the clothes she was last seen wearing(black jacket with white trim) when they found her; more importantly, Katherine always wore rings (many) and when last seen had earrings on as well. Way too many loose ends for this silly November SWEEP storyline. Most of you on these message boards could write better stuff than the incompetents Y&R have now are doing lately. It WAS great, though, to see Brock !

    Posted by artistah at Friday, November 14 2008 05:35 AM

    So has Katherine been in the ravine for three days in Wisconsin in November and is still okay? Hmmmm.
    I can't believe that Victor would not come to the funeral. He is having some sort of breakdown. Running off to mourn his wife, then sleeping with this ex wife, sounds weird to me. Can someone refreshh me on why Victor and Ashley broke up way back when? I watched but I don't remember the details.
