Nick: Alright, now that it’s had some time to sink in, how you feeling about summer and kyle staying in milan?

Phyllis: Our daughter was doing great here. She was happy.

[ Sighs ] She was running jcv. She was successful. They were building their house, planning their wedding. I just don’t understand. I don’t get it, why she would want to stay in italy. I don’t understand why she wouldn’t want to come home.

Nick: I mean, summer’s young. She’s always had a sense of adventure.

Phyllis: Yeah, but this wasn’t an adventure. She was forced out by sally and tara because one wanted her man and the other one wanted her job.

Nick: Look, you came to our daughter’s rescue. You gave summer and kyle their futures back. It is an incredible gift. You want to know what else you gave summer? You lifted this threat that she was under and gave her her life back, so she can make her own decisions, and she’s doing that.

Phyllis: Yeah. You’re right. I did that.

[ Exhales sharply ] I saw lauren fire sally. And so I called summer and i told her — I told her that she had her job back. She wanted to stay in italy. You know, our daughter, she’s thousands of miles away.

Nick: I’m sorry this is so hard for you.

Phyllis: It’s just really difficult. I can’t imagine how jack feels. I mean, one minute he’s running jabot with kyle. That’s his dream, you know? Just like he did with his dad.

Nick: Kyle’s not quitting. He’s just relocating.

Phyllis: Yeah, but in italy. I mean, it’s not the same.

Nick: You got to let them work it out, you know? You’ve been an incredible friend to jack, and sally is the worst kind of trouble-maker. And thank god you exposed all her manipulations. Jack’s a big boy. You don’t have to appoint yourself champion in every circumstance.

Phyllis: I’m not doing that. I’m definitely not doing that. I just feel bad for him. It’s all — I feel bad for him. He’s my friend, and he’s had a really bad year. His mom died. His nephew was suing him. Now kyle’s gone. All that stuff with sally. And then with harrison, he loves harrison so much. I mean, if harrison goes off to italy, jack will be lost.

Jack: Hey! I hope you had a great nap. Aunt traci told me you had a great time at the children’s museum. So I have news for you. Your father is back in town, and he would like to visit you in a little bit. How’s that sound? Good?

Harrison: Yes.

Jack: I thought you’d like that. Listen, before he gets here, I was thinking maybe we could go over to the park, play some catch? You up to that? Okay. Well, you’re gonna be a very popular guy here for a while. I’m gonna squeeze in every minute with you I possibly can. Why don’t you go get your ball and your mitt, and we’ll head to the park?

[ Laughs ]

[ Sighs ]

Nikki: My goodness. You’ve taken my breath away.

Victoria: Oh, I know, that was my reaction, too, when I saw this engagement ring. Ashland surprised me with it earlier.

Nikki: Well, it’s lovely, but that’s not what I was referring to, as you well know.

Victor: Ashland, what’s the point of all this?

Victoria: You don’t have to answer that.

Ashland: No, it’s a fair question, given that everything’s happened so quickly. After all, the last we all got together, I had barely begun divorce proceedings.

Nikki: Indeed.

Ashland: And now that’s all been finalized, and your daughter and I are planning a wedding. A big, splashy one, at that.

Victor: Why now?

Ashland: It’s simple. We’re both making up for lost time. Both the time we missed out on by not meeting each other sooner and a long future that we may not experience together.

Victoria: That’s our other piece of news. Ashland has changed his mind. He’s gonna — he’s gonna fight his illness. He starts treatment very soon.

Nikki: Oh, that’s an option you’ve resisted.

Ashland: The odds of success aren’t that high, but even if there’s the slightest chance that I could enjoy a longer life with your daughter and spending a couple more years watching my son grow up, I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Victoria: We’re going into this with our eyes wide open.

Nikki: Well, it’s your decision to make. Nobody else can know what it’s like to be in your shoes.

Victor: Let me put it this way — I’m glad the two of you erefore, that’s what I’ll do because I work —

>>> This is a cbs news special report. I’m dana we’re coming on the air with breaking news. Andrew cuomo, governor of new york is announcing his resignation. Let’s listen in.

Government really needs to function today. Government needs to perform. It is a matter of life and death, government operations. And wasting energy on distractions is the last thing that state government should be doing, and I cannot be the cause of that. New york tough means new york loving, and i love new york, and i love you, and everything i have ever done has been motivated by that love, and i would never want to be unhelpful in any way. I think that, given the circumstances, the best way i can help now is if i step aside and let government get back to governing and, therefore, that’s what I’ll do because I work for you, and doing the right thing is doing the right thing for for you because, as we say, it’s not about me, it’s about we. Kathy hokum, my lieutenant government is smart and competent. This transition must be seamless. We have a lot going on. I’m very worried about the delta variant and so you should be but she can come up to speed quickly and my resignation will be effective in 14 days. So my team — (naming team ). — And the hundreds of dedicated administration officials, I want to say this, thank you. Thank you. And be prouD. We made new york state the progressive capital of the nation. No other state government accomplished more to help people, and that is what it’s all about. Just think about what we did. We passed marriage equality, creating a new civil right, legalized love for the lgbtq community, and generated a force of change that swept the nation. We passed the safe act years ago, the smartest gun safety law in the united states of america, and it banned the madness of assault weapons. We’ve saved countless lives with that law. $15 minimum wage, the highest minimum wage in the nation, lifting millions of families’ standard of living, putting more food on the table and clothes on their backs, and we led the nation in economic justice with that reform. We have managed every emergency mother nature could throw at us — fires, floods, hurricanes, superstorms and pandemics. We balanced the state budget and got it done on time, more than any other administration, because government should work and perform, free college tuition for struggling families. Nobody in this state will be denied their college dream because of their income. We have built new airptsd, rail — airports, rail, transit, roads across the state faster and better than before and, more than any state in the nation, the most of effective green economy program in the nation. We did more for black and latino families than any other administration. We did more for working families, for our union brothers and sisters, we did more to battle racism and antisemitism. Today so much to have the politics is just noise, just static, and that’s why people tune it out. What matters is actually improving people’s lives, and that’s what you did. You made this state a better state for the generations that follow, and that is undeniable, inarguable and true, even in these ugly, crazy times. I thank speaker karl carl heastie and others for their leadership. Let me say this on a personal note — in many ways, i see the world through the eyes of my daughters, kara, mariah and mckayla. They are 26 and 26, twins, and 23. And I have lived this experience with and through them. I have sat on the couch with them, hearing the ugly accusations for weeks. I have seen the look in their eyes and the expression on their faces, and it hurt. I want my three jewels to know this — my greatest goal is for them to have a better future than the generations of women before them. It is still, in many ways, a man’s world, it always has beeN. We have sexism that is culturallized and institutionalized. My daughters have more talent and natural gifts than i ever had. I want to make sure that society allows them to fly as high as their wings will carry theM. There should be no assumptions, no stereotypes, no limitations. I want them to know from the bottom of my heart that i never did and i never would intentionally disrespect a woman or treat any woman differently than I would want them treated, and that is the god’s honest truth. Your dad made mistakes, and he apologized, and he learned from it, and that’s what life is all about. And I know the political process is flawed, and I understand their cynicism and distrust and disappointment now, but don’t give it up because government is still the best vehicle for making positive social change. Lastly, I want to remind all new yorkers of an important lesson and one that I will carry with me for the rest of my life, and that’s what you new yorkers did in battling covid. The enemy landed in new york state. Covid launched the attack here. It came on planes from europe, and we had no ideA. It was an ambush, and it was up to new yorkers to fight bacK. We were on our own, and it was war. Numberses, doctors, essential workers became our frontline heroes. Hospitals became the battlegrounds. Streets were still, and sirens filled the city’s silence. Trailers carried the bodies of our fallen brothers and sisters. But you refused to give up, and you fought back, and you won, going from the highest infection rate in the nation to one of the lowest. No one thought we could do it, but you did it. You led the nation, and you showed the way forward. And how you did it is what’s most important. You did it together, not as black new yorkers or white new yorkers, not as lgbtq new yorkers or straight new yorkers or democrats or republicans or upstate or downstate or jewish, muslim, protestant or catholic new yorkers, but as one community, one family, the family of new york. You overcame the naysayers and the haters and the fear and the division, and you unified and you rose and you overcame and you saved lives, and that was powerful in its effect. It was beautiful to see, and it was an honor to leaD. Please remember that lesson. Hold it dear and hold it up high for this nation to see because it is new york state at her finest, creating her legacy, fulfilling her destiny, giving life and animation to the lady in the harbor, saying excelsior! We can be better, we canire, and proclaiming eplur bys onium, out of many one, unity, community, love, that is our founding premise. And our enduring promise. And that is the salvation of this nation that it so desperately needs to hear. Thank you for the honor of serving you. It has been the honor of my lifetime. God bless you.

That was governor andrew cuomo resigning effective in 14 days, his third term as governor. And this comes just one week after the attorney general’s report that he had harassed or tumped inappropriately eleven women based on those allegations and investigation. I want to bring in national correspondent jericka duncan who has been covering this story several months. She spoke with one of the accusers and women in this report. In hearing the governor and hearing his personal attorney before that, it seemed they were laying out a case for the governor, and then that changed.

It did. As you and I have been sitting here listening to the news conference, the headline, after listening to his attorney, was this is the governor fighting back. But the governor said, quote, my instinct is to fight, but in this case, it was different. He said that he loved new york, he loved new yorkers and, by showing his love, he didn’t want to waste the tax dollars, the time and knew it was best, he said, to step aside at this time. But it was very, very interesting, I think so many people, dana, who have been following this weren’t sure how this was going to go because we knew the governor laid out even friday, his attorney, same typical argument about holes in the report, questions they had. How are we supposed to fight and give evidence to the judiciary commity friday when we haven’t seen all the transcripts? So that’s what we heard in the first 45 minutes. Then the governor comes up, he says what he said. Interestingly enough, talked about the good things he’s done for the state, reminded people of the progress that the state has made, but also welcomed lieutenant governor but soon to be governor kathy hokum. Me sources say she is ready to step in. I think people knew this was a possibility. Clearly a reality the governor say he was stepping aside and the first female governor to take the role in new york state history.

Interestingly, he very specifically addressed the troopers’ allegations against her.

He did and maintained that he did not do anything appropriate with the women we spoke to compleestles in reporting with the albany times union, brittany commisso. But he apologized to the family, he apologized to the trooper and that he did not know, he said — he does not recall touching her in a way that made her feel uncomfortable. He does not recall putting the palm of his hand on her stomach as reported in the state attorney general’s report last week.

Ricky cleemen, your reaction to what we heard?

I think this is a sad day for new york state. No matter what, this is a hero who as fallen and his life is forever changed. He is someone who led this state in so many ways, particularly as we have seen in the fight against covid, albeit there are still flaws there. He is someone who championed the rights of women in ways that other politicians have never done, and the irony, the supreme irony, almost shakespearean, is that someone who has made it easier for women to be able to sue for sexual assault, to be able to go all the way back for those who were children who were sexually abused, and he is undone by allegations of sexual assault and sexual harassment. I do have to think that we give him much credit for resigning now, for resigning with grace, and for being conscious that this staying in office would be so bad for the state of new york, the people of the state, and for his daughters. I am very moved by his comments, but he has a lot to still face. There is a criminal case that may go forward against him, it may be one, there may be others, and he still has to deal with lawsuits for sexual harassment for a hostile work environment. His crises are not over.

Yeah, he may be stepping down, but, at this point, as you mentioned, there are other issues that he may face. We want to turn to senior white house correspondent ed o’keefe at the white housE. Ed, you have been speaking with lawmakers in albany, what are they sayinG.

Reporter: I spoke with a senator that said the governor was dealing with a biased jury, so this is a sigh of relief in albany. Another member was in tears because it’s been so intense for the state to deal with. Bottom line, he still has a legal fight ahead of him and his lawyer laid out a pretty detailed case to try to defend him in that regard. But the political fight is lower. People said if the 63 member new york state senate would hold a vote to remove the governor they would have done so. The governor understood the political fight was unsurmountable and this is a guy who does not like to lose. The deep-seated hatred or disgust for this governor among legislators, members of both parties, runs deep and the latest allegations were too much for them. They wanted to explore not only these recent allegations but concerns about the book deal he cut last year during the covid 19 outbreak. The concerns about deaths at nursing homes in this states and other issues that had gone over the course of his roughly ten and a half years in office. The other thing to watch for now, jericka mentioned kathy hochul, the lieutenant governor of new york. For the last eight years, she’s traveled the state, visits every 62 counties every year, but is in over her head, they argue, in terms of being able to lead this state. A watch in the next 14 days if the governor does anything to boost her because there’s concern she may not be ready for this. This is just somebody who has not involved because the governor has not allowed her to be involved. That could be an important thing to watch. As rikki said, an important fall for someone who was running for president, a close ally of this president and worked with him on infrastructure during the obama administration and leaving as a major democratic party scar.

The president calling for his resignation last weeK. Thank you very mucH. Our coverage will continue on our streaming network cbsn, your local news and tonight on the “cbs evening news.” This has been a crives special report, I’m dana jacobson in new york.

Nikki: So, how is phyllis handling the news about summer and kyle?

Nick: Honestly, not well. She was kind of blind-sided.

Nikki: Yeah, she probably assumed they’d be moving home.

Nick: Having seen summer over there really seemed to have hit her stride, I had a feeling this might happen. Phyllis didn’T. She’s heartbroken.

Nikki: Well, that’s natural. Mothers want their babies nearby. And she’s been used to seeing summer every day since she’s been staying at the hotel.

Nick: Yeah, she just wanted to be close, you know? To — to be a part of those milestone moments, like a wedding, maybe some grandkids one day.

Nikki: I’m gonna need a moment to sit with that. I mean, I understand that. It’s bound to happen one of these days. It’s just very strange to think of you as a grandfather.

Nick: Yeah. And that would make you —

Nikki: No, no, no. Not talking about that.

Nick: [ Laughs ] Okay.

Nikki: Anyway, I’m sure that phyllis will come around. I mean, she has to understand what an incredible opportunity this job is for summer.

Nick: She just needs some time to adjust, you know? Daniel’s in georgia, and noah’s in london. We got used to it.

Nikki: Yeah, eventually.

Nick: Eventually is right. Alright, I got to go. I’m gonna go and give christian a big hug.

Nikki: Give him an extra squeeze from me, will you?

Nick: Will do. Love you, ma.

Nikki: Love you.

Adam: Chloe just likes to mouth off. Makes her feel like less of a sell-out.

Victor: Son, I’m telling you, she’s dangerous. She shouldn’t be around here at all.

Adam: We both want connor here full-time, right? That means I have to find a way to keep chelsea here, too. Happy, occupied, and most importantly, out of trouble. So hiring her is a strategic move.

Victor: Trust me when I tell you, she will be distracting.

Adam: Don’t worry. My focus is where it should be — on newman media, turning it into a powerhouse, trying to take advantage of our competitors’ weaknesses.

Victor: I hope by that you’re talking about chanccomm, not newman/locke.

Adam: You made it clear that victoria and the family business are off limits.

Victor: And I mean it. Okay? This is an opportunity for you to improve your relationship with your sister, as you have mended fences with your brother nicholas.

Adam: Well, that’s gonna be easier for me than it will be for her. Victoria’s hostility runs pretty deep. Maybe you ought to have that conversation with her.

Victor: I am not gonna talk to her. She has so much on her plate right now. I’m not gonna bother her with it. I’m expecting you and your brother to be supportive of your sister.

Adam: Understood.

Chloe: Sorry, I’m late.

Kevin: No worries. I ordered your favorite.

Chloe: Oh, you’re my hero.

Kevin: How’s your day so far?

Chloe: Not going by fast enough.

Kevin: Adam being difficult?

Chloe: Just the opposite. He is so calm and cooperative, it’s unnerving. It’s like he’s this spider weaving this big, gorgeous web just to trap me in it. Or maybe I’m already trapped and I don’t know it yet.

Kevin: If I had my way…

Chloe: I wouldn’t have taken the job, I know.

Kevin: Well, if it makes you feel any better, I don’t think you’re his intended target. You’re the bait meant to lure chelsea back under his control.

Chloe: Well, I don’t like the idea of that, but, I mean, what other options does she have? Who’s gonna take a chance on her at this point?

Kevin: Does chelsea even want to go back to work? I thought she was still hanging with her mom in minnesota.

Chloe: It might take a while for her to get back into a creative head space. I mean, she’s recovering from a lot of emotional trauma, which is unfortunate, since it turns out creating a fashion platform by yourself is a lot less fun. Oh, my god.

Kevin: What?

Chloe: That’s sally spectra.

Phyllis: Sally spectra — oh, trust me, you don’t want to get involved with that one.

Kevin: Who is this person and why are you asking us to avoid her?

Phyllis: You were so kind warning me not to get involved in your mother’s blackmail scheme, so I am returning the favor. Okay? Um, trust me, you’ll thank me. And if you don’t believe me, just ask lauren.

Chloe: [ Scoffs ] My hygienist cleans with a round head.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Kevin: Who is this person phyllis apparently hates, and what does she have to do with lauren?

Chloe: Sally works at fenmore’S. She used to be a fashion designer in la — a damn good one, actually. She took over at jcv when summer newman moved to italy.

Kevin: Why would lauren give her a high-powered job if she didn’t like her?

Chloe: I don’t even know what phyllis is talking about because every time that lauren has mentioned sally to me, she’s had nothing but great things to say. I’m gonna go introduce myself.

Kevin: Da-da-da. Hang on. Hang on. Phyllis just compared this woman to gloria. What does that tell you?

Chloe: That phyllis is all about drama? You’re more than welcome to join me. You can keep an eye out for red flags.

Kevin: I have to get back to the station, but will you be careful?

Chloe: Aren’t I always?

Kevin: No.

Chloe: Hi. I am a fan of your work. I just wanted to introduce myself.

Sally: I saw you on the patio talking to phyllis, so obviously you’re friends. Did you come over here to give me a hard time?

Ashland: You know, now that I’m settled in at victoria’s house, I’d love for you to come and spend the night with us. We have a room for you if you want it. And guess who else might be there sometimes — your cousins johnny and katie. I think we should all get together and have some pizza, play some games, huh? Does that sound good? We’ll make that happen.

Jack: Sorry to interrupt. Mrs. Martinez asked me to tell you she has a fresh tray of cookies coming out of the oven.

Ashland: Well, you better get some while they’re warm, buddy. I’ll see you soon. I love you, son.

Harrison: I love you, father.

Ashland: [ Chuckles ] Okay. Go get some cookies.

Jack: Mrs. Martinez is waiting for you.

Ashland: [ Laughs ]

Jack: Hey, I didn’t mean to cut your time off. I —

Ashland: No, no, no, no. It’s fine. I’m glad we have a moment to — I wanted to let you know that my oncology specialist has arranged for me to start chemo. First infusion’s tomorrow at memorial.

Jack: Well, I wish you luck with that.

Ashland: Thank you. Probably going to need it. And I think it’s probably best that harrison continues to stay with you while I see how i tolerate the treatment.

Jack: He’s always welcome here. We’re happy to have him.

Ashland: Appreciate that, jack. And I owe so much credit to you and kyle for providing him with stability that he’s needed over these past few months.

Jack: It has been our pleasure.

Ashland: Why don’t you have your son get in touch with me when he gets back from europe, and we can talk about visitation schedule.

Jack: About that — I’m afraid kyle is not coming back.

Victor: Well, I hope I’m not intruding.

Victoria: No, not at all. I just didn’t expect to see you again so soon.

Victor: Yeah. Well, I heard ashland say something about visiting harrison, so I thought I’d catch you alone, you know?

Victoria: Do you have something that you want to say that you didn’t want ashland to hear?

Victor: No, no, no, no, no. I just want you to be able to speak freely. Are you still alright about your decision to become engaged to ashland? Feeling stressed in your skin?

Chloe: I used to work with phyllis — for about five minutes. I would not say that we’re friends. And, yes, she did mention that you two are not on the best of terms, but that’s neither here nor there. I just want to introduce myself because we’re actually in the same industry.

Sally: We are?

Chloe: I have a background as a stylist, designer, and editor, and now I’m launching a new fashion platform for newman media.

Sally: Wow. Sorry, I really didn’t mean to jump to conclusions. Please forgive me. Phyllis took a dig at me earlier, and it put me on edge. But never mind that. You were starting to introduce yourself.

Chloe: I’m chloe mitchell.

Sally: It is really nice to meet you, chloe. So, tell me more about this platform.

Chloe: Oh, well, I’m hoping to recruit chelsea lawson. We teamed up before when she was designing at jabot.

Sally: Yeah, I know her work. She’s a major talent.

Chloe: And I’m sure you know about her recent breakdown, since it’s all over the news.

Sally: Yeah, I hope she’s doing well.

Chloe: She’s resilient and incredibly strong. I have no doubt that she will make a full recovery soon.

Sally: Well, it sounds like you’re a good friend.

Chloe: I think we all deserve second chances.

Sally: I couldn’t agree more.

Victoria: This visit is throwing me a little.

Victor: Why’s that?

Victoria: Well, at lunch, you were behind my engagement to ashland, but now you show up here, you’re questioning my decision.

Victor: No, sweetheart, I’m not. You know that I respect ashland locke, and I don’t say that kind of thing lightly.

Victoria: I’m hearing a “but.”

Victor: You know he’s in a dire situation, my darling. Treatment or no treatment, he has a rough road ahead of him.

Victoria: One that I don’t want him to walk alone.

Victor: So you’re doing this out of pity?

Victoria: No, don’t twist my words. Ashland knows the difference, whether or not you do. If pity were enough for him, if that’s all he wanted, he would have reconciled with his wife because she was willing. Ashland and I are together because we know that’s where we belong for as little or as much time as we have.

Victor: [ Sighs ]

Jack: Since we last spoke, I’ve had a chance to talk to summer and kyle. She does not want to leave her position with angelina marchetti, and my son does not want to leave his fiancéE.

Ashland: That complicates things.

Jack: Tara put them through quite a lot.

Ashland: Well, I can imagine kyle’s gonna have his work cut out for him making it up to summer. And I know she wasn’t too keen on the idea of helping him raise harrison in the first place.

Jack: No, no, that is not the case. No, that was her cover story to get out of town when tara was pushing her to do so. No, summer and kyle would love to have harrison stay with them in milan, if you would allow it.

Ashland: A few hours ago, you were emphasizing the importance of not uprooting the boy, and now you’re asking me to send him across the ocean to live with a couple of kids who have no experience in parenting?

Jack: I think it is very important that kyle and harrison continue to build the bond between them, especially with tara somewhat out of the picture and you, of course, are going to be focusing all your time and energy on your treatment.

Ashland: I agree, but that’s why I was going to allow kyle visitation. But apparently your son has other priorities.

Kevin: We need to get something straight.

Adam: Just checking my calendar. Nope. You’re not on it.

Kevin: I tried to stay out of this, but I can’t any longer. I’m not gonna let this slide.

Adam: What are you talking about?

Kevin: You’re being too nice to my wife. Why new woolite?

Adam: Well, I can’t remember the last time someone complained about me being nice.

Kevin: I don’t buy this reformed act of yours. Neither does chloe. The more you try and sell it, the more convinced we are that you’re hiding something.

Adam: Well, I mean, that’s understandable, given our history.

Kevin: Really? That’s all you have to say?

Adam: [ Sighs ] Look, if this is giving you this much anxiety, maybe chloe should go work for somebody else.

Kevin: Trust me, there’s nothing I would like better, but she’s determined to help chelsea rebuild her life.

Adam: That makes two of us.

Kevin: I find that hard to believe after everything chelsea put you through. But hey, whatever. I could care less about what you and chelsea do to each other from here on out. I came here to put you on notice. If chloe gets caught in the crossfire, there will be hell to pay.

Adam: Noted. And for what it’s worth, i admire how protective you are of your family. You know, if I would’ve stood by chelsea with the same devotion, who knows how things might have turned out?

Kevin: They would’ve been screwed no matter what because the real adam always comes out in the end.

Adam: Alright, kevin, I think we’re done.

Kevin: You’ve got a lot of people fooled. Maybe even yourself. But I know who and what you are and always will be. Just a matter of time before that guy shows up again.

Chloe: Your athletic line for forrester — I mean, it was killer.

Sally: Thank you. I’m flattered.

Chloe: And as long as I’m singing your praises, congratulations on your big promotion at jcv. I knew that when lauren hired you as her assistant, it would only be a matter of time before you got moved up.

Sally: Lauren, you know her?

Chloe: The love of my life, kevin fisher, is her husband’s brother.

Sally: Gotcha.

Chloe: A bit convoluted, i guess.

Sally: No, no, no. Not at all. I, um — I love lauren. She did not have to take a chance on me, and she did and i will be forever grateful. She’s just been a fabulous mentor.

Chloe: You know, it’s really funny that we haven’t run into each other until now. Maybe it’s perfect timing.

Sally: Oh?

Chloe: Well, jcv could use some positive press, and my new platform is looking for content, so maybe we could help each other out.

Sally: That would be great.

Phyllis: Hey. Is this a bad time?

Jack: No, no, come on in.

Phyllis: Hello, ashland.

Ashland: Well, phyllis. I understand you had a hand in exposing tara’s machiavellian plot.

Phyllis: Well, I hope you won’t hold it against me.

Ashland: Someone had to do it. We’ll talk later.

Phyllis: Someone had to do it? Did I interrupt something?

Jack: Don’t take this the wrong way, but whenever there’s a problem, you have this habit of wanting to go all in to fix it. Please don’T. I can handle this on my own.

Phyllis: Okay. Nick said the same thing, that you don’t need my help.

Jack: Okay. Well, if that’s so, why are you here?

Phyllis: I need a friend.

Victor: I’m not questioning you. I’m not questioning your decision. I meant what I said about ashland. I have respect for him. And I must say, you’ve finally met a man who’s worthy of you. But I also know you. You’re like your mother. You love deeply. That means you’re setting yourself up for potential heartache. And I’ve been through that with you before. I’ve comforted you before, right?

Victoria: Dad, I’m gonna be alright. No matter what. I don’t want to lose ashland, and if I do, I’m sure that i will be devastated. But at least I won’t have any regrets. Because we won’t have wasted any time, and I plan to make all of our memories very beautiful and meaningful so that when i look back one day, I will just remember how happy we were. Dad, I know I’ve been in love before — I know that — but not like this.

Victor: Okay. Well, then let me do something for you. Ashland mentioned something about a big wedding. So let me plan that for you, with the help of your mother.

Victoria: Why?

Victor: You’re my daughter. I adore you.

Victoria: I don’t know what to say.

Victor: I just want you to know that when I appointed you ceo of newman enterprises, i knew you could handle it. But now there’s this merger, along with it goes enormous responsibility. As if it that wasn’t enough, you now have to see ashland through probably the most difficult phase of his life. Don’t you have enough on your plate?

Victoria: Yes, I do. And weddings, they do take — they take a long time to plan.

Victor: They do. I remember my weddings to your mother.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ]

Victor: They were huge, you know? And I bet yours is gonna be very similar. So why don’t you let me handle it, along with your mother? I won’t do it alone. Do we have a deal?

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Yes. Just call me nancy.
