[ Door slams, keys clink ]
Billy: Uh, you’re not gonna believe why victoria wanted to meet me.
Lily: Um, she gave you a lead on a story?
Billy: Not exactly. Ashland is moving in with her.
Lily: What? I mean… wow, I didn’t see that coming.
Billy: Neither did I. My head almost exploded. Would’ve loved to see the expression on my face.
Lily: Well, yeah, that’s pretty shocking. I mean, what about the kids?
Billy: Well, exactly. So victoria wants us to take the kids more often so they can get used to the situation, and, of course, I love having the kids here, and it’s not a problem, and I know you do, too, but you would have to be on board with this, as well.
Lily: Yeah, no, of course. I mean, I love your kids. I’d love to have them here as much as you and victoria want. But, I mean, isn’t this kind of fast, having ashland move in with her?
Billy: Fast? It’s extremely fast. And there’s another extenuating circumstance. Supposedly, he’s only got a few months to live.
Lily: So you were right. He is dying. God, that is awful.
Billy: I’m not sure victoria understands what she’s setting herself up for.
Victoria: Oh, good. Oh, there you are. Kids, sit down for a second real quick. There’s, um, somebody that i would like for you to meet. Um, this is someone very special to me. His name is ashland.
Ashland: Hello. It’s a pleasure to meet you two.
Victoria: These are my kids. This is johnny and katie.
Ashland: Your mom has told me so much about you.
Johnny: Are you mommy’s friend?
Ashland: I’m mommy’s close friend, yes, and I hope maybe we can be close friends, too.
Katie: Do you like to play dolls?
Ashland: I happen to love playing dolls. Maybe we can do that, as well.
Victoria: [ Sighs ] So ashland’s going to be staying with us for a little while, and you guys are gonna be spending more time at your dad’s house while he’s here.
Ashland: I hope that’s okay with you guys.
Johnny: We like it at daddy’S.
Victoria: Good. I know you do. That’s good. I think that this is gonna work out good for all of us. Right?
Johnny: Can we go play now?
Victoria: Yes, yes, you can go play. Ashland?
Ashland: [ Breathes deeply ]
Victoria: Are you okay?
Ashland: [ Sighs ]
Kyle: [ Sighs ]
Jack: Having a rough day?
Kyle: I’m worried about harrison after what happened in the park. You saw the video.
Jack: Yeah, it was not ashland’s best moment.
Kyle: He lost control, really scared harrison. The kid was in tears afterwards. Now tara…
Jack: Go ahead. “Now tara,” what?
Kyle: She maybe wants to restrict ashland’s contact with him.
Jack: That’s an aggressive move. What do you think?
Amanda: How long have we been waiting?
Devon: Not that long.
Amanda: Victor’s gonna call, right?
Devon: Yes. Yeah. Of course he is, when he’s ready to. You were kind of vague, though, on how he’s gonna approach this whole thing.
Amanda: Well, I am looking for a weakness in sutton. Everything I’ve tried so far hasn’t worked, so I need a new angle. I need a way to push him into a corner. And victor is gonna help me find something that will trap him and make him confess that he’s the one who had my father killed.
Victor: So, amanda sinclair wants to expose you as her father’s killer.
Sutton: I figured as much. Saddens me that she thinks I’m capable of something like that. I’m afraid she’s turning out to be quite a disappointment. Now she’s wasting valuable time. You said something about having a solution to this problem?
Victor: I can guarantee it.
Billy: I’m concerned about victoria bringing this guy into her home. The kids have never met him. Victoria only met him a few months ago. [ Sighs ] He’s dying. He’s only got a few months to live. She claims that she can manage the situation so the kids aren’t negatively impacted. I just don’t see how that’s possible.
Lily: Well, look, this is not a perfect situation for anyone, but I think that we can all work together to make this as easy as possible for the kids, you know? Victoria’s a good mom. She’ll handle this responsibly. I’m just shocked that she’s willing to go through this with ashland.
Billy: I know. Me, too. She knows what she’s doing. She knows what she’s getting into. I mean, is she doing this just so the deal doesn’t fall through?
Lily: You don’t still believe that, do you?
Billy: I think it’s a part of it. It’s the same reason why she allowed herself to be dragged through the press.
Lily: Billy, she wouldn’t put herself through this if she wasn’t emotionally involved. I mean, taking care of someone who is terminally ill is brutal because that person’s gone, and then you’re left alone to grieve.
Billy: I understand that, and I’ve tried to talk to her about it, but she clearly doesn’t want to listen to me.
Lily: Then maybe you need to listen to her. Clearly, she think this is the right thing for her to do to take care of someone who’s going through a difficult time. And I think you have to learn to be okay with that.
Billy: Right now, my focus needs to be on the kids.
Lily: Yes. And I’m sure victoria’s is, as well.
Billy: Thank you for supporting me and for being cool with the kids staying here.
Lily: Of course.
Billy: [ Sighs ] I’m gonna go get them this evening, if that’s okay with you.
Lily: Yeah, absolutely.
Billy: I’ll call victoria and set it up with her. In the meantime, there’s a few things I need to take care of.
[ Door closes ]
Victoria: Are you breathing easier?
Ashland: Well, I’m feeling better. This attack was odd — more constrictive, less painful.
Victoria: What do you think that means?
Ashland: I have no idea. But I’m glad it didn’t happen until johnny and — and katie were gone.
Victoria: Yeah, me, too.
Ashland: Are you having second thoughts about me being here? I mean, with my condition and the kids? I absolutely understand if you are.
Victoria: No. No, I’m not. Billy and I have already talked about how we’re gonna handle things with the kids. It’s okay. I don’t want you anywhere other than right here.
Ashland: I don’t deserve you.
Victoria: I just feel very lucky to get to spend every moment with you that I can.
Jack: Look, I understand how upsetting this encounter in the park was for harrison. I also understand your instinct to want to protect your son. But let me ask you something. You’ve lost a parent yourself. Wouldn’t you have given anything to have more time with your mother?
Kyle: 100% I would’ve. And I would never want to take away harrison from having those kind of moments with ashland. But the incident in the park — you didn’t see it in person. I don’t think you could fully see on the video just how scared harrison was.
Jack: I don’t think ashland intended any of this. Look, I saw the tape. I… I think this was a man protecting his son, trying to shield him from a debilitating illness. Not particularly the best way. Look, I don’t think you can expect a guy that’s going through that much to handle everything perfectly all the time.
Kyle: I hear what you’re saying, but I’m just trying to do what’s best for my son.
Jack: That’s the priority. You let that guide you, I am confident you will make the right decision. I got to go.
[ Keys jingle ]
Sally: Ooh, I am glad to see you. I need your advice.
Jack: About what?
Sally: Whipped cream or foam?
Jack: That’s easy. Neither.
Sally: Oh, so you’re a “none of the above” guy.
Jack: Most decisions in life are not binary choices.
Sally: You’re even turning “whipped cream versus foam” into a life lesson?
Jack: I’m kind of a purist when it comes to coffee drinks.
Sally: Okay, can you just clear this up for me? Are we having just some friendly and slightly awkward banter, or are we actually, like, building until you get to the point where you actually ask me out again?
Jack: How about tonight?
Sally: Yeah. I think I can make some room in my schedule.
Jack: I’ll be in touch with details.
Sally: Okay. Who needs coffee? I’m gonna…
Jack: Can I get a coffee — black?
Phyllis: Hey, I couldn’t help but notice that you were looking at those right there.
Jack: Don’t even start about sally.
Phyllis: And I’m not going to start about sally. I’m not doing that. That’s not what I was talking about. Live and let live. That’s my new motto.
Jack: Gee, I wish I could believe that.
Phyllis: Believe it. Seriously, I don’t feel the need to protect you. I don’t want to intervene in your life.
Jack: Well, perhaps you could share your new attitude with the world at large, because most people out there are just trying to get through life as best they can. Everyone has issues. Everyone has problems. No one needs someone to add to them.
Phyllis: I-I don’t want to add to anyone’s problems.
Tara: Harrison had another nightmare when he took his nap.
Kyle: About what he saw in the park?
Tara: That’s what he said. He woke up terrified. Couldn’t stop crying.
Kyle: God, I just wish we could all get on the same page. If ashland isn’t willing to work with us to help harrison through this, then —
Tara: Maybe my instincts were right, and I should fight to keep ashland away from him.
Amanda: I wasn’t sure what to expect, you know, when I went to go see victor, especially given the fact that I tried to implicate him and his company in the murder of my father.
Devon: And how did he react to that?
Amanda: He said that he understood I was just trying to do my job.
Devon: Is there a part of you that still wonders if he’s telling the truth?
Amanda: Of course. I’ve been burned so bad that I’m always wondering that. I think that he sincerely wants to help me.
Devon: Yeah, I think you have every reason to believe that he is sincere. And you told me that you two connected over growing up without parents. And if this truth comes out, it clears his name, too.
Amanda: Yeah. No, I think I trust him. I do. I’m just not sure I trust myself. I haven’t been the best judge of character.
Victor: Were you aware that richard had come to me to ask me to help in the search for his child?
Sutton: I was not.
Victor: Well, he became aware that his ex-girlfriend had had a baby, you know? And, uh, then they’d all found out that they were twin babies. I was compassionate. You know, I felt sorry for him because of my own past. So I steered him in the direction of a private eye that would help him in his search.
Sutton: Well, unfortunately, it didn’t pan out.
Victor: Unfortunately, right.
Sutton: So why are you telling me all this?
Victor: A few days before he died in that tragic accident, he’d sent me a letter. The contents of that letter might be of great interest to you. The airport can be a real challenge for new homeowners
Kyle: I’m not sure what the right thing to do in this situation is. I’m just trying to make the best decisions for harrison, same as you.
Tara: I’m as confused as you are. I mean, my intention had been for ashland to spend as much time with harrison as he was able, knowing how fast he could be declining.
Kyle: That’s what I wanted, too.
Tara: I truly believed that the diagnosis had changed him. But from what I saw in the park, he hasn’t accepted that he can’t control this.
Kyle: Well, maybe if we went to locke — together. We could come to an understanding.
Tara: I think part of what upset ashland was seeing us together — you, me, and harrison — because it was a glimpse of a future that he is not going to be a part of.
Kyle: Oh, but this isn’t about us. It’s about our kid, his future, his happiness, and I’m gonna do whatever I can to care for him, to protect him, and give him the best life possible.
Tara: I can’t tell you how much it means to me to hear you say that, to know that you feel the same way. It’s just so reassuring.
Kyle: Yeah, um, let’s talk more later. I’ve — I’ve got to check in with the office. Um, when I get back, we can discuss this some more, come up with a plan on how to move forward.
Tara: I’d like that. [ Sighs ]
Devon: Yeah, I’ll get those numbers to you right away. Okay.
Devon: Hey. Hi. Forgot my keys.
Lily: Oh, my gosh.
Devon: [ Chuckles ]
Lily: Any news about mariah?
Devon: Uh, no, nothing new. Nothing new. I don’t think it’s anything that we need to overreact about. I actually think that that’s probably the reason why mariah took off in the first place, was just everybody hovering over her while she’s trying to deal with being pregnant for the first time, you know? But knowing the kind of person she is, I can’t fault her for doing what she felt like she needed to do. So…
[ Cellphone pings ]
Lily: Is that mariah?
Devon: No, no, this is amanda. She’s waiting on some important information for the case she’s working on. It’s crazy, though, what she’s had to deal with with her family. She has her mom, who has admitted to a crime that she obviously didn’t commit, and between that and all the competing loyalties and agendas with her family, she’s just — nothing stopped her. Nothing slowed her down. She’s still very determined to find out the truth about what happened to her father.
Lily: Wow. Well, I hope she finds the answers she’s looking for.
Devon: If they’re out there, she will find them.
Lily: Yeah. Well, keep me posted.
Devon: I will, I will.
Lily: Okay. Oh, wait.
Lily: I have some news, as well.
Devon: What’s your news?
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Um, I am entering a stepmom situation, a real one, where, um, johnny and katie are coming to live with me and billy, full-time, almost, for the next few months.
Devon: Wow. How does victoria feel about that?
Lily: It was her idea.
Devon: W-why would she suggest that?
Lily: Ashland is moving in with her.
Lily: [ Chuckles ]
Devon: Wow, that’s very generous.
Lily: Well, I think it’s more than generous. It’s really brave to risk that kind of emotional pain.
Lily: You know, when I got my diagnosis, and I thought I might die, you know, it really made me think, like, who’s gonna actually be there for me in the end, you know? And she’s doing that for him. But, yeah, I just don’t think billy really sees it the way i do yet, you know? He’s still worried about the kids and how fast things are moving. And, you know, he’s also thinking that victoria’s still doing this for the business merger.
Devon: What about you? Do you think that’s a possibility?
Lily: I mean, I did at first, but I think when you’re willing to watch someone go through something as scary as ashland is, you know, that really makes you reexamine your priorities. So, clearly, there’s a deep connection there.
Lily: I just don’t think that billy really understands that yet.
Billy: Hey. I’m here to get the kids.
Ashland: Oh, uh, well, they’re upstairs with victoria. They should be, uh, ready soon.
Billy: Uh, how you doing?
Ashland: A-and you?
Billy: I’m good.
Ashland: Does it bother you that I’m here?
Billy: My main concern are johnny and katie.
Ashland: Well, that’s everyone’s position, and it’s the right one. I-I’m going through a similar situation with my son in the wake of what was captured on a terrible video of us in the park.
Billy: Yeah, that was unfortunate.
Ashland: I regret overreacting. I wanted to protect harrison, but then I ended up making him feel frightened and confused.
Billy: Well, you’re in a tough spot.
Ashland: I soon need to have a serious age-appropriate talk with my son about my condition, as I would imagine that you would have a similar talk with your kids, given that they will see me in a weakened state.
Billy: I got to admit, ashland, I don’t understand what you’re doing here.
Ashland: Well, I don’t know how to break this to you, but victoria and I are involved in more than just a business deal.
Billy: Yeah, well, the fact that you two decided to move in together certainly suggests that, but let’s assume that she does have real feelings for you. You’re sick. You’re dying. So why would you do that to her? Why would you subject her to the inevitable pain of losing you?
“The young and the restless” will continue.
Phyllis: Hey, you. To what do I owe the pleasure?
Tara: Oh, I have a meeting with lauren, but I’m a bit early.
Phyllis: Ah, great. Well, let’s have a little chat. I mean, I’ll keep you company until she arrives.
Tara: Sure. Sounds good.
Phyllis: Have a seat. [ Sighs ] So… [ Clears throat ] My daughter’s having such a great time in milan. Oh, my gosh. She loves her job. She loves it. In fact, she sent me a picture. She looks so happy. See? See how happy she is?
Tara: Oh, she really does look happy.
Phyllis: Yeah, she is so happy. Yeah. So this worked out great for everyone. It’s win/win, isn’t it? Except for kyle. I feel bad for kyle. I think he’s really, really hurting. I think he’s — he’s still trying to figure out, you know, how to feel about her leaving. I think he’s suffering. You know? I think it’s great, though. I-I think the time away will make them realize how much they love each other and how much they miss each other. And they’ll be in each other’s arms real soon.
Tara: Oh, it would be great if they could find a way to work it out. But kyle seems to have accepted summer’s decision, and he’s focused on the future. I mean, his growing bond with harrison is so amazing to watch.
Tara: I can’t imagine him walking away. Especially given ashland’s deteriorating condition and the way my ex is dealing with it.
Phyllis: Oh, yeah, I saw the video.
Tara: I mean, he actually frightened harrison with that outburst.
Phyllis: Honestly, harrison will be fine. Kids are resilient.
Tara: Well, it’s not acceptable. Kyle and I need to put our child first. We’re even talking about trying to get sole custody.
Phyllis: You’re gonna get — wait, you’re gonna try to get sole custody from a dying man?
Lauren: Hello, ladies. Oh…
Lauren: Am I interrupting something?
Tara: Not at all.
Lauren: Oh, you know what? Ugh, I forgot the mockups we need. I’m gonna go to the car, and why don’t I meet you at the street entrance at the restaurant, okay?
Tara: Sounds good.
Tara: Listen, I can tell that you’re a great mother, and that entails making the right choices for your kid. And as you know, sometimes those choices are hard. Sometimes people get hurt.
Phyllis: I don’t disagree with that.
Tara: I’m as protective as i can sense you are. You would do anything for your child, and so would I. Which means we’re really not that different from each other.
Amanda: What was that about?
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] I’m doing a dance with that girl.
Amanda: What kind of dance?
Phyllis: The tango, but i think she’s leading. You know, we’re trying to out-nice each other, and it is really, really hard. I just lost it, too. I shouldn’t have done that, and I did.
[ Sighs ]
Amanda: Okay, what happened? What got under your skin?
Phyllis: The lengths that this girl will go to to get her hooks into kyle.
Amanda: [ Sighs ] Yeah, I-I read that kyle was the biological father to her son. I mean, I didn’t know that there was more to it than that.
Phyllis: This girl has wormed her way into the abbott household already. She’s pretty much jumped from ashland’s millions into the abbotts’ millions. I really just need her to snap so jack and kyle realize what’s really going on.
Amanda: I heard that the abbotts welcomed tara and her son into their family. I mean, are you sure about her agenda?
Phyllis: Yeah, i am sure about her agenda. It’s obvious. I mean, she’s playing this sweet mom, this — this victim of her own circumstance, and — and, “I’m such a good mother to my kid,” and she’s using harrison. I mean, it’s so obvious. I can’t stand it.
Amanda: Phyllis, are you really sure that she’s doing that?
Phyllis: Yeah, I am, amanda. I am really sure. And you know who else can see it? Billy. Billy has seen how she’s ingratiated herself with the abbott family just to get close to kyle.
Amanda: Oh, that’s what the two of you were talking about earlier.
Phyllis: Yeah. I mean, we’re working together. That should tell you something. I’m working with billy on this. That girl preyed on my daughter’s deepest, deepest insecurities and got my kid to fly to another continent for peace just so she could clear a path to kyle. That’s what she did.
Amanda: Okay. I mean, if you’re right about all of that, then I understand why you want to intervene. But have you thought about how your actions can affect kyle’s son and jack’s grandson?
Phyllis: Oh, please. It won’t affect him. He’s an abbott. They’ll take care of him. That kid will want for nothing.
Amanda: Well, if your plan is to run tara out of town, then she may take her son with her. And unless kyle has a legally binding custody agreement, she could deny him access to harrison.
Phyllis: Nah, that’s never gonna happen. They’re gonna fight it. Jack and kyle will fight it, believe me. Especially if they know who she really is as opposed to this saint that she pretends to be.
Amanda: Well, can you please be careful? And can you make sure that you are right about her agenda before you do anything rash?
Phyllis: I am right about her agenda. I’m 100% right. And I will take her down. It will be steady, and it will be calculated, but I will take that girl down. Let’s not talk about me. Let’s talk about you. What’s going on with your case?
Amanda: [ Scoffs ] Well, that’s been one shock after another.
Phyllis: I know. Your mom, who confessed. And — and your grandfather, who you think is guilty?
Amanda: Yeah, and the latest shock of them all — the person that is my greatest ally in all of this is victor newman.
Victor: Well, I launched an investigation into amanda’s claim that someone at newman had been responsible for richard’s death. And during that investigation, i came upon the letter that richard had written to me.
Sutton: So, what’s it say?
Victor: He thanked me for my help. He also said that he had been in touch with you and that you had warned him that he should discontinue the search for the child or else there would be consequences.
Sutton: Well, either richard was lying about his contact with me or you’re lying about the letter.
Victor: Now, sutton, you and I are not in and adversarial relationship right now. You know, we’ve had always amicable dealings with one another, right?
Victor: So I’m simply suggesting an arrangement. Aw, c’mon flowers.
Ashland: I’m sick. Nobody said anything about dying.
Billy: Oh, but that’s what your concern is, isn’t it? For my — for my children? What they would be going through now that you live here? Not to mention what victoria would be going through.
Victoria: I can speak for myself, billy. Look, one thing is for sure, that nobody knows what the future holds. It’s impossible to predict that. I think you and I understand that better than most people, right? Ashland and I, whatever happens, we just — we want to go through it together and make each other as happy as possible in the meantime. I don’t understand what part of that is so hard for you to see.
Billy: Well, alright then. I can be okay with that. As long as everyone is open and honest and everything is on the table, and no one takes advantage of anyone else’s good nature.
Ashland: Billy, that’s the last thing I would ever do. And surely you know that victoria’s a woman who does what she wants. And nobody is going to cajole her into anything.
Billy: Ashland, I’m really sorry what you’re going through, and it’s good to see you happy…as long as it lasts. I’m gonna go get the children.
Phyllis: Ah, seriously. Sorry, I had to deal with a customer complaint.
Amanda: Eh, it’s no problem.
Phyllis: Honestly, this job would be awesome if I didn’t have to deal with guests.
Amanda: [ Chuckles ] Okay, did you want to talk later, then?
Phyllis: No, no, no. I want to know about your case. I want to know about sutton.
Amanda: Well, right now, we’re just trying to find weaknesses in sutton’s armor.
Phyllis: Well, I mean, you’re working with victor. He’s really, really good in finding weaknesses in people. Very good.
Sally: I will tell jack you said hello. We are going out tonight.
Phyllis: Oh, well, definitely tell him. Definitely. And, you know, jack and I are completely honest with each other. He knows how I feel about you dating him. It doesn’t seem to matter to him. So, hey, listen, it’s his life, his choice.
Sally: I’d like to believe you’re sincere.
Phyllis: Well, I’m definitely sincere, and you should be happy that my opinion has absolutely no impact on jack. But it did have an impact on my friendship with him, and that is very important to me. So I am out of it. I’m out of it. Do what you want.
Lauren: I have to ask, is there something going on between you and phyllis?
Tara: Oh, it’s a complicated situation, obviously, with summer deciding to leave. I hate feeling like I’m in any way responsible. It’s the last thing I ever wanted.
Lauren: This whole thing has been very hard on her.
Tara: Which makes it all the more surprising that I think phyllis and I are actually becoming kind of friends.
Lauren: Well, as one of phyllis’ closest friends, I will tell you that she is amazing. She is funny and caring.
Tara: Except when you get on her bad side.
Lauren: Uh… [ Chuckles ] Maybe when we get to know each other better, I can fill you in on that.
Phyllis: Friendships are important, aren’t they? Especially in this town. And I am determined to foster every single relationship that i have. Tara is happy to reciprocate.
Sally: Well, good for you.
Sally: I am impressed by your new outlook.
Sally: Have a good night.
Phyllis: You, too.
Amanda: Okay, what the hell was that?
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] I don’t know, amanda. But I’m gonna put the puzzle pieces together. I’m gonna do it. Something is going on between tara and sally. I know it in my gut. Both of those girls benefited by my daughter leaving town. Sally has summer’s job at jcv, and that one over there has her man. Not a coincidence… and I will prove it.
Billy: Kids are settled, and it’s fantastic that they love their rooms.
Lily: Aww. I’m so happy that they’re comfortable here.
Lily: So how’d it go with victoria and ashland?
Billy: [ Sighs ] Honestly, I feel for the guy. I mean, everything he’s going through — tara’s deception, finding out that your child is not your biological son, knowing that you only have a few months to live, having to make the choice to sell your empire, something that you’ve built your entire life. It’s just — it’s horrible.
Lily: I know. It’s a lot to deal with.
Billy: Right now, it seems the only thing he’s looking for is happiness with victoria.
Lily: Well, I think it sounds like they both deserve that.
Billy: Yeah, I agree. I didn’t see that in the beginning, but I do now.
Lily: I’m glad.
Billy: I’m surprised by my level of maturity.
Lily: [ Chuckles ]
Billy: It’s something I have you to thank for.
Lily: That’s true.
Billy: [ Chuckles ]
Tara: [ Sighs ] Thanks for coming back so soon.
Tara: Were you able to finish everything up at the office?
Kyle: Mm. Did you text me because you wanted to pick up our conversation about harrison? I assume you’ve thought more about what we talked about.
Tara: I’ve actually given it a lot of consideration. And I made a decision.
Victoria: Your favorite wine for your first night here.
Ashland: Oh, my. Well, I would love to offer the perfect toast, but I don’t know if I can find the words to express how happy and grateful i am.
[ Cellphone ringing ]
Victoria: [ Sighs ]
Ashland: That’s my attorney. I won’t answer it.
Victoria: No, you should — you should get it.
Ashland: [ Clears throat ] Yes? Okay. Uh, give me a minute until I can figure out my next move. Tara filed a new motion — for sole custody of harrison.
Sally: Well, I wasn’t sure this was gonna happen again.
Jack: I’m a bit surprised myself.
Sally: Well, let’s not put any pressure on ourselves. You know, tonight doesn’t have to be perfect. The other night kind of was, but we’re not gonna be able to outdo ourselves every time. So… [ Sighs ] Please stop me from talking.
[ Chuckles ]
Jack: Okay, why don’t we start simple? You look lovely.
Sally: Thank you.
Jack: And I’m really glad we’re doing this.
Sally: Me, too.
Devon: Still no word from victor?
Amanda: No, not yet. But I have resigned myself to the fact that this will take longer than I thought to get results. You know, sutton is a smart man, and victor has to play this safe if he’s going to get him to admit anything that I can use to prove his guilt.
Devon: Well, victor’s no rookie at getting what he wants. So if anybody can do it, he can.
Amanda: And I have every confidence that he will pull this off.
Victor: Now, sutton, I have no reason to lie to you, and i certainly am no friend of amanda sinclair’S. I mean, I’m very angry with her for even investigating newman enterprises and me personally, you know, trying to defame us to use that as her defense. But I do have that letter, you know? The contents of which are very valuable to you, I’m sure. And I’m the only one who knows of the existence of that letter.
Sutton: Why don’t we cut to the chase here?
Victor: [ Chuckles ] Sutton, you and I know how these things work. I mean, that letter can be yours for the right price.
