Victor explained that he was a friend of Abby's mommy, and her mommy was very special to him, so any child of hers was special, as well. Victor mentioned that he'd once had a little girl, but she was all grown up and not around much anymore, and it made him sad because he'd once had her all to himself. "Mommy says you're my father," Abby announced. "No, she didn't say that," a confused Victor gently replied. "I saw her on TV. She says you're my daddy," Abby insisted.

The Young and the Restless resumed production earlier this month for the first time since the show was forced to halt production in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Until those new episodes are able to be broadcast, the CBS soap continues to air classic episodes devoted to iconic characters or episodes curated to fit a special theme. This week focused on memorable moments from perhaps the biggest name in Genoa City: Newman. A complete list of episodes that aired during this week can be found here.

This episode originally aired November 21, 2003. In the episode, Victor reunited with his estranged father, Albert Miller.

Albert Miller finally admitted his identity and that he did have a son named Christian. But he'd never been a family man. He made no apologies for his past. Victor said that he supposed he should thank him. Because of his father's abandonment and cruelty to his wife, son, and unborn son, Victor had fought for everything he had, and he was successful beyond anyone's wildest dreams. Albert taunted him for possibly thinking that the two of them could have some warm and fuzzy reconciliation before he died. He asked Nick if he'd come because he was anxious to meet his grandfather. Nick said that Albert should leave him out of it; this was between Albert and Victor. Albert asked Victor if he wanted a check. For a million? Two million? What would it take to make him leave? Victor raged at his father for the past, expressing all the anger he'd ever felt for him. He'd come because he believed in the importance of family. Albert suggested that family was overrated and he suspected that Nick agreed with him. Victor said that all his wealth meant nothing without his family. He'd come to say goodbye, and now he and Nick were leaving. Albert's face was trembling as they walked out. Once outside the room, Victor sank to a chair and buried his head in his hands, in tears. Then he thanked Nick for being there. Nick gently suggested that they go home, and put his arm around his father's shoulders as they left the hospice.
