Young & The Restless Transcript

Jack: I’d like an order of white lilies surrounded by blue hydrangeas. Yeah, I want it to be stunning. I’m going for the “wow” factor that matches the woman they’re being delivered to. Perfect. Thanks.
Lauren: Wow. Who’s the lucky lady? Do I know her?
Jack: As a matter of fact, you know her well. Sally and I are giving it another shot.
Lauren: Oh. Uh… [ Chuckles ] I’m a bit surprised.
Jack: Do you think it’s a mistake?
Sally: Well, I found three more erroneous charges on my bill. This is getting ridiculous.
Phyllis: Ugh. Listen, I am so sorry. Whoever is responsible for this will get an earful from me.
Sally: You’re the boss. Doesn’t the buck stop with you?
Phyllis: You’re right. I am in control.
[ Clears throat ] So, sally, uh, just go ahead and after you’re done marking off the charges that aren’t yours, put them in charge in this folder, and I’ll take care of it.
Sally: Well, good, because i am not paying for one cent of any of these.
Phyllis: You’re right. You will only be paying for what you are responsible for. I promise you that.
Kyle: So…tell me more about what went down with ashland.
Tara: Well, he sees me as the enemy. I tried to plead with him, appeal to his sense of compassion, but it was futile. I mean, thankfully jack came home in the middle of our conversation before things could get too heated. Ashland seemed to ease off a little bit in jack’s presence, but I could still see the fury behind his eyes. I just feel like he is weaponizing telling harrison the truth, and that now it is this ticking time bomb.
Kyle: That’s not right. How do you want to handle things moving forward? Are you gonna let ashland talk to harrison alone like you said he wanted?
Tara: We can’t wait for him to be reasonable ’cause it’s never going to happen. I think I should tell harrison with you by my side.
Kyle: Oh, won’t that only make ashland angrier?
Tara: I don’t know, but i just — I feel really helpless right now, and I’m worried about what ashland is gonna do next, and I just — I really want to be proactive.
Kyle: Okay. I know you have harrison’s best interests at heart, but I think sharon had the right idea. Her professional opinion made sense to me — that you and ashland should break the news to harrison alone. I mean, this is the most important conversation you’ll ever have with him. There’s no need to rush it.
Tara: Maybe you’re right. You are probably seeing things a little more clearly than I am. And I am very grateful that i have you to talk everything through with.
Kyle: This is about all of us. So we’re waiting?
Tara: Yes. Hopefully ashland will cool off and I will be able to talk to him again.
Kyle: Sounds good.
Tara: [ Chuckles ]
Kyle: You still seem a bit anxious. Is there something else bothering you?
Tara: [ Chuckles ]
Nate: Uh-huh. Fantastic. That sounds great. Alright, talk to you soon.
Elena: Hey, you.
Elena: Hey, what was that all about, good news?
Nate: I was just about to call you. Look, I want to take you out right now for some very expensive champagne.
Elena: [ Laughs ] Okay. But we’re not really date ready. I mean, you’re mid-job, and I’m still in my scrubs.
Nate: Good point, good point. Let’s go back home and change, and I will meet you at society.
Elena: Okay, but first, are you gonna tell me what you’re so excited to celebrate?
Nate: Not quite yet, but if you hurry up, you will be the first to find out.
Devon: Thank you.
Abby: Thank you for meeting me for coffee.
Abby: Again, you truly have been my rock.
Devon: If that’s your way of saying that I’m hard-headed, probably know some people that agree with you.
Abby: No, that’s my way of saying that you have been a really great friend.
Devon: Aw, so have you. I hope that smile on your face is ’cause mariah’s come back.
Abby: No, I — I wish. I’m just as worried about her as I was before. Maybe more.
Devon: Really? You haven’t heard anything new from her?
Abby: She sent a couple text messages. She did say that she’d be home before the next doctor’s appointment, which is within the week.
Devon: Okay. Well, that’s a relief that she said that. I really thought she’d be back by now, though.
Abby: Me, too. I just hope that she means it when she says that she’s coming back soon and that she’ll be in a good place when she gets here.
Mariah: [ Gasps ]
[ Sighs ] Good morning, kiddo.
[ Sighs ]
Lauren: You know, it’s not my place to decide if somebody’s relationship is a mistake. But for the record, I have no issue with you and sally giving it another go. In fact, I’m really glad I gave her another shot at fenmore’s, because without these second chances, you and I might have missed out on the phenom named sally spectra.
Jack: I take it she’s doing a great job at jcv.
Lauren: Jack, she’s shining.
Lauren: So much so that I’m considering making her job as acting head of jcv permanent.
Jack: That is just great news.
Lauren: Oh, look at you.
Lauren: Wearing dina’s “teardrop of love.” Mm, maybe they’re working their magic.
Jack: Oh, I wouldn’t go that far. No, sally and I are just trying to find our footing again. Though these stones seem to be working their magic on you and michael.
Lauren: Yes, we’ve never been happier. But you know what? Maybe these gemstones represented a different kind of love for you. Maybe instead of romantic, it’s familial. I know what a gift it is for you to have your grandson in your life.
Jack: Oh, it is such a joy to have that boy in the house.
Jack: I only wish it had happened sooner. Maybe dina would have had a chance to meet her great-grandson.
Jack: Maybe you’re right. Maybe the stones have brought the next generation of the abbott family home.
Lauren: [ Laughs ] But you’re not buying it, are you?
Jack: No, truthfully, I think of the necklace as, well, signifying hope, which I have an abundance of these days. I get to watch harrison growing up. I get to spend time with a lovely, clever, charming woman, wherever that goes. And each day seems to present a new opportunity. No, I’m — I couldn’t be more grateful or happy than I am right now. And I have you to thank for part of that. Thank you for sharing that necklace with my family.
Lauren: Oh, you’re so welcome. I mean, I can’t take all the credit. I’m happy for you, jack. You deserve all the joy there is in life, my friend.
Jack: Thank you. I want the same for you.
Phyllis: So all the charges have been deleted from your account. It won’t happen again.
Sally: Oh, no, it won’t happen again because I intend to keep a much closer eye on my bill from here on out.
Phyllis: Oh, obviously, obviously. Can I offer you a free day at the spa? It’s on us. I mean, I want to do that for the inconvenience.
Sally: That’s awfully nice of you. Little too nice.
Phyllis: Oh, okay, well, if you’re not interested in that, maybe some training sessions. You know, that super-hot trainer still has a crush on you.
Sally: Well, thank you very much for your thoughtfulness, but I’m not sure jack would be too happy about that.
Phyllis: Oh, that’s right. That’s right. Forget I said anything. Well, if you change your mind about a facial or massage, just give me the word.
Sally: Or you could just owe me one.
Phyllis: I definitely owe you one. I’ll be making good on that.
Tara: I suppose nothing else is the matter besides my entire life being turned upside down. I mean, it has just been one thing after another, and it doesn’t seem to stop. First it was ashland finding out about our affair. Then it was the divorce and then the custody arrangements, and now finding out ashland’s dying. I uprooted my entire life and harrison’s to try to find a way to deal with this situation the best I could. And I can’t see any true peace for my little boy in the near future.
Kyle: You and I are gonna do everything we can to help him through this.
Tara: I know we’re gonna try, but I don’t think we’re gonna be able to protect our little, sweet boy from everything.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Kyle: Hey, it’s mine.
[ Sighs ]
Kyle: I don’t need to take this. I’ll send it to voicemail.
Kyle: And I know you have so much going on right now, and of course you’re on edge. Is there anything I can do for you?
Tara: You know what? I think I’m gonna need a little time alone. I think I’m gonna — I’m gonna go for a drive.
Tara: Yeah. Harrison is gonna be dropped off soon from a play date. Do you think you could watch him for me?
Kyle: Yeah, no problem. Not touching is still touching protection.
Abby: I want to make sure that mariah’s homecoming is everything that she needs it to be, so — so no more nagging, no more hovering. I don’t want to put any pressure on mariah at all.
Devon: Yeah, but you’re being too hard on yourself. I never saw any nagging. You’ve just been concerned, that’s all.
Abby: [ Sighs ] I’m not so sure about that. Looking back at it, I mean, even now, I mean, I was trying to find a way to track mariah through her cellphone. Yeah, that way I could figure out where she was, and then i stopped myself because i realized that that would be an invasion of privacy and that is exactly what mariah has been asking us for — privacy.
Devon: Yeah, and I’m glad you’re respecting that.
Abby: She has sent us a message loud and clear, so when she gets back, if you see me being overprotective, please stop me because the last thing i want to do is drive her away again.
Devon: Oh, no, no one’s gonna have to stop you from doing anything. You guys obviously just had a miscommunication, and now that you know how she feels about everything and you’re aware of that dynamic, you’re gonna be just fine.
Abby: Yeah, I hope so.
Abby: You know, I really haven’t been asking you how you’re feeling about everything. I haven’t been putting any pressure on you, have I?
Devon: No. No, not at all. I knew what I was getting myself into when I started this journey with you. I’m still happy to be on it, no matter how unpredictable it gets. And I’m glad that I can be there for you while chance is gone, too.
Abby: Yeah, I definitely did not think he was gonna be away this long. I thought that we would be decorating the nursery and reading baby books and picking out baby names — not the jokey ones that we talked about before.
Devon: I know. You’ll be able to do that soon. And now that I’m always here to lean on if you need somebody. And I’m not the only person in your corner. You have all the abbotts, the newmans, nina, tessa, got a lot of friends and family that will do anything for you. So you are definitely not alone in all this.
Abby: [ Sighs, chuckles ]
Tessa: Oh, hi.
Nina: Did I interrupt something?
Tessa: Oh, no.
Nina: You can tell me. What were you looking at?
Tessa: Uh… that app that stitch was talking about. Tracking people’s locations through their phones, I — I found it. And I think I know enough of mariah’s personal information and passwords to make it work.
Nina: I see. I didn’t know that you were still considering that.
Tessa: Look, I know that you and abby are against this, but i can’t do nothing. And don’t take this the wrong way, but I’m not gonna argue about it.
Nina: No, I’m not gonna argue with you about it either. Mariah’s your partner. You have to do what you feel is right.
Mariah: [ Exhales deeply ] Feel that, kiddo?
[ Sighs ] Calm, measured yoga breathing. I’m doing my best to pass that serenity on to you. ‘Cause no stress for me means no stress for you. I’m just trying to pretend that there is some sense of normalcy here because this is all very, very normal. Okay. Okay, let’s start over. Try it again.
[ Inhales ] Breathe in.
[ Exhales ] Breathe out. Staying relaxed.
[ Sighs ] Not agitated. Not claustrophobic.
[ Sighs ] You want me to try again? Okay. I will try again.
[ Sighs ]
[ Doorknob rattling ] Hey! Hey! Look, as much fun as this stay has been, me and this baby would like to get out of here now, please. Please?
[ Sighs ] I guess we’re still prisoners. Alice loves the scent of gain so much,
she wished there was a way to
make it last longer.
Elena: You clean up nicely.
Nate: So do you, but you look just as beautiful in scrubs as you are all decked out like this.
Elena: [ Chuckles ]
Nate: Shall we?
Elena: I wasn’t sure exactly what to wear, considering you’ve been so cryptic. You’re not gonna keep me in suspense all night, are you?
Nate: Okay. Remember when I had some good news, but I wanted to sit on it until it was locked in?
Elena: Of course I do. I remember I tried to seduce it out of you that night. But somehow you resisted my charms.
Nate: Oh, the way I remember it, I didn’t resist.
[ Both chuckle ]
Elena: Yeah, but you didn’t tell me what was going on.
Nate: Ah. I guess I was having so much fun I forgot.
Elena: Well, I’m not opposed to trying that approach again if I have to.
Nate: Okay, good to know, but it’s not necessary. Wait, what am I saying? No, no, we can do that again. Yeah, we can go back to your place and —
Elena: I’m gonna kill you if you don’t spit it out.
Nate: Okay, okay. I’m ready to come clean.
Elena: Tell me.
Nate: You know what? Let’s get some bubbly first.
Elena: [ Scoffs ]
Nate: Excuse me. Can we get a bottle of your finest champagne?
Elena: Oh, my gosh, you’re killing me.
Abby: You do know that friendship goes both ways, right? I want to be there for you like you have been there for me.
Devon: Abby, you’re always there for me. I know you’ll have my back if i need it.
Abby: Okay, well, I have expressed all my doubts and fears, so now it is your turn. Please, tell me.
Devon: Tell you what? I don’t have any right now. I don’T. My life is pretty good.
Abby: Well, that is fantastic. Okay, well, I want to live vicariously through you, okay? Please tell me all about everything, all about your life.
Devon: All about my life?
Devon: Okay. Well, work is going great. It’s been really nice having moses stay with me. It’s been fun. But I don’t know, I guess the main source of my happiness these days is from amanda.
Jack: Where’s harrison?
Kyle: He came from his play date exhausted, so he’s taking a nap.
Jack: Oh, I’m sorry I missed him. I was gonna grab a snack. You hungry?
Kyle: Not really.
Jack: You know, there’s a ball game on. We could check it out.
Kyle: I’m not really in the mood.
Jack: Okay. Something’s going on. What is it?
Kyle: I had a conversation with phyllis.
Jack: Oh, that would do it. About what?
Kyle: She thinks tara is somehow involved with summer leaving town, that she orchestrated the whole thing.
Jack: I know all about phyllis’ theories with tara. It upsets me as much as it does you. Look, she had tara in tears not long ago. I don’t know why she feels so compelled to stick her nose in other people’s business. It just makes me wonder about her more than it does about what she’s saying is true.
Kyle: I know she’s also hurt that summer left town so suddenly, but —
Jack: You think she’s looking to blame someone, that she just seized on tara?
Kyle: That’s what I’m thinking.
Jack: Okay, well, I have told her multiple times to back off, and she will not drop it, not with tara and not with sally.
Kyle: Sally — interesting you bring her up, because phyllis was linking tara and sally, as well. She thinks they’re working together as co-conspirators.
Sally: Tara! It’s nice to see you. What are you doing here?
Tara: I came about my shoe line and the possibility of collaborating with jcv.
Sally: Of course, yeah, let’s sit down.
Tara: Actually, I think it would be better if we went up to your suite.
Sally: Sure, yeah. Let’s go upstairs.
Tara: Tell me what happened. Are you out of your mind sending that text?
“The young and the restless”
Jack: Are you actually buying into phyllis’ theory?
Kyle: Okay, I admit, I let her get into my head earlier. She had me wondering if tara was up to something.
Jack: So where are you on this now?
Kyle: The idea that tara put together this elaborate plot on top of everything she’s dealing with right now, it’s ridiculous, so, no, I don’t think tara’s scheming behind our backs.
Jack: I agree. I don’t think she’s capable of being this devious.
Kyle: Right. But sally, on the other hand…
Jack: Why would you blame sally for anything?
Kyle: Summer leaves town, sally gets her job at jcv, a job she never would have been —
Jack: Let me interrupt. Has phyllis given you any evidence to support these suspicions?
Kyle: No. But she claims she was working on finding some.
Jack: Summer recommended sally for the job. You know that. If sally was manipulating things, that doesn’t make any sense. I know she’s done some questionable things in the past, but I honestly believe she’s trying to change.
Kyle: Okay, trying is not necessarily succeeding, and i know you don’t want to hear this, dad, but you’ve been down this road with sally. I don’t want to see you get hurt again.
Phyllis: Well, look at that. Someone’s irritated, someone’s confused.
Tara: Let’s get something straight. I am not about to let you risk my life or my son’S.
Sally: I have no idea what you’re talking about. What on earth did I do to put anything at risk? The only thing I’ve been focused on lately is my job and jack.
Tara: And phyllis. I mean, what could she know that would be so important that you would send blatant and incriminating texts to my phone. Anyone who sees that would have proof of our collusion.
Sally: Okay, the more you talk, the more confused I get.
Tara: What in god’s name is so confusing?
Sally: I didn’t send any texts about phyllis. What the hell? I didn’t send that. And — yeah, I don’t have any record of a message like that on my phone. Phyllis. Oh, my god, that conniving bitch.
Tara: What? You think that phyllis sent that text from your phone?
Sally: [ Sighs ] Go wait in my suite.
Tara: Why? What are you gonna do?
Sally: I’m gonna handle phyllis.
Tessa: I don’t want to push mariah further away, but I’m worried sick.
Nina: And you weren’t reassured by her latest texts?
Tessa: Not really. Because when I texted her back to ask her to send me some clue if something were wrong, she didn’t respond, which makes me think that something is actually wrong. I can’t explain it. It’s just a gut feeling.
Nina: You have to trust your instincts.
Tessa: Mariah’s the woman i love, and I can’t stand not knowing whether she’s okay. I know you and abby want to lay off so she feels comfortable enough to come home, but I can’t do it. And if nothing else is wrong, then I’m to blame, and she’ll be furious at me, so I’m turning on this app to track her phone.
Mariah: [ Sighs ] I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you. I guess I just have to look at it from your perspective. There are no windows in there, and there are no windows in here. So I guess we just have to wait. Because we are not getting out of this room. Believe me, I have tried everything. I have screamed and I’ve prayed and I’ve begged and I’ve threatened, and whoever is keeping us in here is giving us the serious silent treatment. Don’t worry, though, okay, kiddo? I’m gonna find a way to get us out of here, okay? I’m gonna get you back to your mom safe and sound…somehow.
[ Rumbling ] Here we go again. Breyers is always so delicious…
Devon: No, amanda and I have been getting closer and closer every day. She’s — she’s something special. I’ve been in awe of her lately throughout this case she’s taken on for her family, ’cause it’s just — it’s put her through a lot of emotional stress. She’s stayed really strong through it.
Abby: Well, I do have to agree with you about amanda. She is brilliant and beautiful and she is exactly what you need, in my humble opinion.
Devon: I appreciate that opinion. It’s crazy, though, to think about how she came into my life. Colin using her to try and steal my money.
Abby: Well, I would give more credit to fate than colin, and then it was up to the two of you to get past your animosity and realize that you have something special.
Devon: Yeah, that’s true. It was an odd start, but we really did connect.
Abby: I have to ask, how does she feel about your involvement with baby chancellor? I mean, especially now that the due date is getting closer.
Devon: She’s been supportive since day one, when she gave me her legal opinion about our contract.
Abby: Well, that is a huge relief because some people might not be that supportive.
Devon: No? Are you talking about anyone in particular? Maybe an ex of yours?
Abby: No, no, ben is happy for me. And, yes, ben and I, we once shared a love for each other, but that was a long time ago. You know, and now we’ve both moved on and it’s kind of like being around an old friend. I’m actually happy that he’s gonna be moving here.
Devon: Oh, really, he is? I thought he was just here for the party and then decided to stay a little longer. He’s gonna move here?
Phyllis: Oh. Surely there’s not another problem with your bill?
Sally: What the hell is wrong with you?
Phyllis: Excuse me?
Sally: You have some serious issues and no ethical boundaries.
Phyllis: Um…I’m sorry, I’m confused. I mean, we credited your account. There should be no problem. I offered you a spa day. You know, maybe you’re stressed out. Now would be a good time to use it.
Sally: Save it. Nice really doesn’t work for you. It comes across as cloying and fake.
Phyllis: Oh, I’m sorry you feel that way.
Sally: You distracted me with that whole bogus bill charade so that you could steal my phone and send that twisted text.
Phyllis: Um…I’m sorry, I’m confused. Why would I send a text from your phone when mine works perfectly fine? Why would I do that? Um, anyway, maybe you did it and you just forgot. But what was on that text that has you so upset?
Sally: You think that you’re smarter and more devious than i am, but you are making a big mistake underestimating me.
Jack: I realize your heart is in the right place in warning me about sally, but I assure you i am going into this with my eyes wide open.
Kyle: Going into what, exactly?
Jack: She and I are having dinner together tonight.
Kyle: Okay. Well, you know how I feel. I’ve said my piece. I guess I don’t have any more proof than phyllis does that sally is involved with summer leaving, so…
[ Cellphones vibrate ] From phyllis.
Jack: Yeah, god only knows what this could be.
Kyle: Hmm, it’s a video file.
Jack: Yeah, there’s no sound. Security footage.
Kyle: Of tara and sally arguing.
Jack: About what?
Kyle: Mm, no idea, but the time stamp on the video says it was recorded in the last hour.
Jack: They’re looking at their phones. What could that be about?
Phyllis: Oh, sally. I don’t underestimate you at all. I really don’T. But I am curious why you’re so upset.
Sally: Oh, you don’t know? Okay, alright, cool. Let me show you. Give me your phone. I’d like to send a few text messages. There’s some things I’d really like to get off my chest.
Phyllis: Okay. [ Chuckles ] Okay, listen, for argument’s sake, for argument’s sake, let’s say I did send that text. Why would you be so scared?
Sally: I am not scared.
Phyllis: Oh, I think you are scared.
Sally: What you did is an invasion of privacy. I could press charges for theft.
Phyllis: What did I steal?
Sally: You impersonated me. That is identity theft.
Phyllis: Oh, please.
[ Chuckles ] But something on that text has you really freaked out. What could it be that would make you so angry? I mean, the way that you’re acting, it’s really next-level.
Sally: You know nothing about what hits me on any level.
Phyllis: I think I do. I think your buttons have been pushed. Someone’s pushed your buttons. You come clean right now. You tell me what you and tara did to my daughter.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Kyle: I hate having to question tara like this. She is the mother of my child.
Jack: I know that, but this video raises enough questions to at least warrant a conversation.
Kyle: Yeah, what if we’re jumping to conclusions?
Jack: I hope we are. But whatever’s going on, we need some answers.
Abby: Ben’s moving back because he was offered a job at the hospital. And, yes, I might remind him of a good time in his life before max’s illness, but there’s nothing more to it than that.
Devon: You sure?
Abby: I am, yeah, 100%. And actually, he’s been a happy distraction from worrying about mariah and the baby. He’s given me a lot more support than I expected.
Devon: Okay. Alright, well, hey, that’s — that’s just me being protective of you, that’s all. If you’re happy, then I am happy.
Abby: I am. Ben and I, we might have had some painful times in the past, but that’s over with. I’m actually really happy for him. I mean, it’s kind of cool that he’s moving back to genoa city. It might be the start of a new chapter in his life. And besides, how can he turn down a job like chief of surgery at memorial?
Elena: Don’t you dare take a sip of that until you tell me what’s going on. No. What is the news? What are we celebrating?
Nate: Okay, I can share it now because the hospital board finally approved it.
Elena: Approved what?
Nate: We are about to toast to the fact that you are now sitting across the table from the new chief of surgery at memorial.
Elena: [ Inhales sharply ]
[ Gasps ]
Nina: How long does it take for the app to track mariah’s phone?
Tessa: I have no idea.
Nina: You know, I want to be perfectly clear, I have no problem with your decision. You and mariah have a special bond. I mean, anyone in the world can see how in love the two of you are.
Tessa: Thank you. I really appreciate you saying that. But, god, I’d give anything to hear her voice and see her beautiful face again.
[ Beeping ]
Nina: Does that mean it worked? Did it find mariah?
Tessa: It says her phone location is completely blocked. What does that mean?
Mariah: See, kiddo? It’s right on time. You know, the service may be lacking, but the food, it isn’t that bad. Ah, and we have a side of prenatal vitamins, no less. We have everything we need. Except an answer. Don’t panic, mariah. Don’t panic, don’t panic, please.
[ Exhales sharply ] Okay. Well, I guess I can’t really hide what I’m feeling from you ’cause you are literally growing inside my belly, can I? So we’re in this together. And we’re gonna get through this together, okay?
[ Sighs ] Who are you?! What do you want from us?! Just tell us what you want!
