Billy: Oh, I’m sure johnny’s gonna love the da vinci science museum and the planetarium.

Lily: Oh, yeah, and they’ll both love the water park and leolandia. It’s gonna be a great family trip.

Billy: It is. Very excited about this. I got to be honest, I’m sure even the wedding will be a blasT.

Lily: Yeah, so please be careful how you choose to investigate ashland so you don’t get cordially uninvited.

Billy: Because he will come after us and chanccomm and i will rue the day? I’m not intimidated by him.

Lily: Well, maybe you should be.

Billy: Really? Look what happened with victor. After all the empty threats to come after us for the exposé on adam, it’s been nothing.

Lily: I don’t know if you realize, but victor still holds a very intense grudge against you, and I’m sure if things got ugly with ashland, he’d be on ashland’s side.

Billy: That’s because he sees ashland as a younger version of himself, especially the way he’s been so ingratiating with victor.

Lily: Well, I’m sure he sized victor up and realized that he’d be better as a friend than an enemy.

Billy: Yeah, maybe. See, but I’ve never sucked up to anybody, right? Especially not victor. I feel like that’s what you love best about me.

Lily: I do, I love that about you, but please don’t take any unnecessary risks.

Billy: Me? I would never.

Lily: Mm-hmm.

Billy: Don’t look now, but that’s the guy I was talking about earlier, the one that met with locke.

Lily: Hmm.

Nick: Hey, do you know where I left my clean —

Phyllis: It was personal to jack, and I didn’t want to — i didn’t want to tell you his personal feelings.

Nick: Yeah, okay.

Phyllis: He was drinking, so, you know, there’s that. We do and say a lot of things we don’t mean when we’ve had a few.

Nick: Yeah, he did mention that.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. So I didn’t want to say anything. It has nothing to do with me, really. It has nothing to do with us. You know? It caught me off guard, to be honest with you.

Nick: I know you two have bonded over missing summer and kyle since they moved to italy. Are you sure you didn’t know how he felt?

Phyllis: How would I know how he felt?

Nick: I don’t know. I guess I just assumed you understood how unforgettable you are, you know? You’re not somebody that you just get over very easily.

Phyllis: Oh, yeah, for sure, I’m not someone you get over easily. I’m glad it’s out in the open.

Nick: Yeah, jack mentioned that he felt badly that he left me in the dark.

Phyllis: Well, that’s nice of him. He’s a gentleman.

Nick: That he is.

Phyllis: This has nothing to do with us. You know that. I mean, this hasn’t changed anything with us. Right?

Nick: No. I mean, I’m — I’m not sure —

Phyllis: You’re not sure? What? We’re solid.

Nick: I know, I know. I just think — that’s all.

Phyllis: Don’t think. Stop thinkinG.

Nick: Okay.

Phyllis: Stop thinking. I know how to get you to stop thinking. I know how to make you sure that our relationship is solid, okay?

Nick: [ Sighs ]

Ashland: Half a million in cash. Well, you’re gonna like this even less. I need it in an hour from now in hanD. Yes, it’s excessive. I freely admit it. I — I need the funds for an impulse purchase — something rare and exquisite that I want to buy for my beautiful bride. Look — well, the seller is — is old-fashioned and very stubborn, and he insists on us currency. Listen, douglas, you know, as i get older and I care less and less about the irs and jumping through those god-awful hoops. Yeah. Look, who– whoever said “you can’t take it with you” knew what they were talking about. Now, I know that you — listen to me — I know that you have a way to come up with those funds, to find that cash. That’s why I keep you around, okay? You’re a very clever fellow. Text me when it’s ready, won’t you? Thank you.

Victoria: I guess I wasn’t supposed to hear that.

Ashland: Unfortunate timing.

Victoria: Apparently. That call of yours sounded quite mysterious. Delivering bundles of cash in the middle of the day — does anybody do that anymore?

Ashland: Well, I should’ve been more clandestine. I’d hate to think that I spoiled the surprise. Would you do me a big favor and pretend that you didn’t hear whatever it is that you heard?

Victoria: Mm, I’m not sure i can do that. I’m so curious now.

Ashland: Come on, just make the effort for me.

Victoria: For how long? Is this another wedding present? Are you telling me that I’m gonna have to wait till we get to italy to find out?

Ashland: You are made of tough stuff, and I know you can stand the suspense. And I also know that you’re expecting your mother to arrive shortly, so I will make myself scarce and give you a chance to talk.

Victoria: I appreciate that.

Ashland: And I also know that it’s been a while since i revealed I had changed my name when I was younger, and I would think that — and hope — nikki had time to adjust to that idea. But I also understand that she probably has her concerns, as any loving mother would.

Victoria: Well, I wouldn’t know. We haven’t discussed it. In the end, it doesn’t matter because I make my own decisions.

Ashland: I just love your independent side. I also know how important it is for you to have your mother’s support and planning this wedding together with her. It means it’s important to me, too.

Victoria: Listen to me. I’m aware that the reason that you came forward with the truth is because you’re protecting my relationship with my family, and that meant a lot to me, but how my parents react, that’s up to them.

Ashland: Unfortunately, that’s true, and that’s rather wise for you to recognize.

Victoria: Well, I learned a long time ago you can’t control what people think or do or feel.

Ashland: You know, most people go through their entire life and never figure that out. You are way ahead of the game.

Victoria: Well, I have my moments.

Ashland: Indeed you do. Now, no more philosophizing for the morning. Can you join me for lunch later? Assuming that you are free.

Victoria: Well, that depends on if you’re gonna tell me what you’re up to or not.

Ashland: Not a chance.

Nick: Hey.

Phyllis: Hey. Good morning again.

Nick: You took off without saying goodbye.

Phyllis: Uh, yeah. I got a call that some controller thing in the freezer wasn’t working, and so I had to call the appliance company and we’re on their schedule.

Nick: Nice going.

Phyllis: Yeah. Okay, so you have my undivided attention.

Nick: I’m just glad that, you know, we’re okay.

Phyllis: Yeah. We are okay. We’re better than okay.

Nick: Put the whole jack thing aside.

Phyllis: Yeah, I think we proved that last night. Um, by the way, you really outdid yourself, and that’s saying a lot.

Nick: You’re welcome.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ] Um, I just, you know, wanted to say one last thing about jack. That’s all. Just one last thing. I just — my heart aches for him, that’s all. I know he is lonely and alone, but I think that he will find the perfect match for him, like we’ve done. Don’t you think — don’t you think so?

Nick: Yes, of course.

Lily: He looks very ordinary. You made him sound like he was so sinister.

Billy: They were definitely confronting each other. It was intense. They were leaning in, trying not to make a scene. Now he’s just having coffee.

Lily: Well, maybe it was a business deal gone sour.

Billy: Lily, we’ve both been in negotiations with ashland locke. He was charming. Believe me, this was different.

Lily: Different how?

Billy: Ashland does not like that man. That much was clear.

Lily: Okay, well, you are very good at reading people.

Billy: I didn’t need a special skill for this. They’re adversaries of some kind, which means our new friend over there might be very useful for us.

Lily: Our new friend? You don’t even know his name.

Billy: We need to find out who he is.

Lily: I’m on it. Hi. Could I get a menu? We wanted to order some food to go. Thank you. Thanks so much. His name is jesse gaines — g-a-I-n-e-S. (Upbeat pop music throughout)

your doctor gives you a

prescription. Let’s get you on some antibiotics right away.

Lily: You know what? Something came up, actually, so we’re not gonna order anything. I’m sorry. Thank you.

Billy: Jesse gaines. Wouldn’t have imagined it would be such a common name. There’s a whole slew of them.

Lily: Really?

Billy: Yeah. Some of these are obituaries. We can cross those off the list. This one is not the right age. Wait a second. This could be our guy. Jesse gaines jr., From toms river, new jersey.

Lily: Wait, toms river, new jersey. Wait, that’s where the two stations that locke acquired when he first started are located.

Billy: Exactly. Our guy seems younger than ashland.

Lily: Maybe he works at one of the stations, and locke still owns them?

Billy: Could be.

Phyllis: Um, yeah, you know, we need to put this jack thing to bed. I just want to ask one more question.

Nick: Alright, shoot.

Phyllis: I just… you know, jack told me that he didn’t want you to know about his feelings, and I understand why he would want to tell you because he wouldn’t want a dirty little secret between us, but what I don’t get is, you know, why didn’t he just come to me and say, “hey, you can tell nick” or give me a heads up that he was going to you. You know, instead he just bared his soul to you without letting me know at all.

Nick: Maybe jack felt like he owed it to me, you know? He’d kept it hidden, every time our relationship would come up, and also, he had a vested interest in the outcome.

Phyllis: Our relationship has come up when you’ve been talking to jack? Oh. Well, I’m sure when you said that we’re doing really well and we’re so happy, that didn’t go over well with him.

Nick: [ Sighs ] I think jack just felt more comfortable with everything out in the open.

Phyllis: Yeah. Okay. I don’t think we should talk about this anymore. I’m ready to put this to bed for good.

Nick: Same.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Nick: Yeah, cool. Besides, I think I have other ideas on how I’d like to spend the morning.

Phyllis: Do you?

Nick: Yeah. If you’re not too busy, could you meet me at the park?

Phyllis: Oh. Really? A picnic?

Nick: You’ll see when you get there. Just, you know, some comfortable clothes and definitely shoes.

Phyllis: Okay. Yes, sir.

Nick: I’ll see you there. I’m gonna go get some things set up.

Ashland: I have been waiting for this. What a perfect time for it to arrive.

Victoria: What is it?

Ashland: Well, consider it a combination congratulatory merger gift and an early wedding present.

Victoria: That is so sweet of you, but you shouldn’t have gotten me anything.

Ashland: Oh, you need this.

Victoria: Okay, well, now I’m very curious.

Ashland: Well, see for yourself. I know that your father’s portrait hovered over the ceo’s office for many years. I thought it was time that it was replaced. This painting should take its rightful spot in your office to exemplify the changing of the guard.

Victoria: I love it. It’s just beautiful. I — I don’t know what to say.

[ Sighs ] I-is this a londeree? A meryl londeree?

Ashland: Indeed it is.

Victoria: How did you get her to do it?

Ashland: It wasn’t easy to convince her, but you deserve it. There is nothing I won’t do to prove my love for you.

Victoria: You already have, again and again.

Nikki: Now, before we start talking about the wedding, i wanted to — oh, my goodness.

Victoria: It’s stunning, isn’t it? I was blown away when ashland presented it to me.

Nikki: Oh. It’s beautiful. He has exquisite taste.

Victoria: Oh, he is so thoughtful.

Nikki: Yes, indeed. I wonder what your father’s going to think of it. I mean, it makes quite a statement.

Victoria: As it should. Newman is mine now. Most bladder leak pads were similar.

Phyllis: Hey. Um, you said comfortable clothes. Are we working out?

Nick: We’re having football practice. Well, practice for the practice.

Phyllis: Uh, really?

Nick: Yeah. I signed up to coach christian’s flag football team, and I think you should be my assistant.

Phyllis: Uh, you’re serious?

Nick: Totally serious. Christian’s so excited he’s finally old enough to play football, and I love this sport, and I think you should do it with me. We both really want you to be involved.

Phyllis: Christian said that?

Nick: Of course. Don’t be surprised. He adores you almost as much as I do.

Phyllis: Oh. Well, that’s sweet. I mean, the feeling is mutual, but, you know, I was gonna come to the games and cheer you guys on.

Nick: Yeah, I know, but this takes it to the next level.

Phyllis: Wow. This is a commitment. Yeah. Oh. You know I know nothing about football.

Nick: It’s okay. I know everything. It’s just skills and drills and, you know, conditioning, and I’m gonna put you through the whole thing and you’ll see that it’s great. And I just need to know that you’re willing to try, and you’ll see how easy it is.

Phyllis: Okay, I’ll try. I mean, hey, it’s a nice day. We’ll get some exercise, right?

Nick: You got it. Let’s go! Alright!

Phyllis: Oh.

Nick: We’re gonna work on that part. You just — you want to —

Phyllis: Yeah. That’s — great.

Nikki: So, for whatever reason, the inspectors are dragging their feet and we can’t retool the factory until we get the sign-off.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Which means more delays. Damn it, I was hoping we could have this done before we went to italy.

Nikki: Honey, it’s all being handled. Don’t worry another moment about it. Now, let’s move to wedding talk.

Victoria: We should be in the home stretch as far as planning, right?

Nikki: The new landscaping has been installed at the palazzo. Do you like it?

Victoria: It’s gorgeous. I love it. Oh, my gosh, it’s outstanding. They really outdid themselves.

Nikki: Yeah, victor and i were very pleased.

Victoria: Me, too. And it’s even so late in the season.

[ Sighs ] It’s really happening, isn’t it? My wedding. Exactly the way I envisioned it.

Nikki: Did you have some reason to doubt that it would? Or should?

Gaines: Jesse gaines, suite 405. Would you see if I have any messages?

Billy: Jesse gaines — that is a blast from the past.

Gaines: Excuse me?

Billy: Oh, I apologize. I used to know someone named jesse gaines. Actually, my father did. I think they worked together. Maybe he was a lawyer back in jersey.

Gaines: Well, that may have been my father.

Billy: No way! Get out of here.

Gaines: I’m jesse gaines jr. I took over the practice when he died.

Billy: Oh, I’m sorry to hear about your loss. We have that in common, actually. I took over my father’s business for a while, as well. I’m billy abbott. John abbott was my father. He was the founder of jabot cosmetics. I don’t know if you’ve heard of us.

Gaines: Sure. Who hasn’t?

Billy: [ Chuckles ]

Gaines: Well, I wonder what would’ve led our parents to do business together.

Billy: Yeah, that’s funny to think about. I don’t know. What do you think?

Gaines: My father wasn’t in the cosmetics industry, so…

Billy: Hmm. Well, new jersey, manufacturing of fragrances back in the day. Could’ve been that.

Gaines: Yeah, that’s all north and west of where we were from. Different part of the state altogether.

Billy: What about advertising? Newspapers, magazines, maybe tv stations by chance?

Gaines: As a matter of fact, he did. Couple of news stations.

Billy: Oh, wow. There you go. Very cool.

Gaines: You know, it is amazing that you would remember my father’s name after so many years. You must have been very young. He stopped working a long time ago.

Billy: Well, it’s a steel trap. Information gets in, doesn’t get out. It’s kind of a cruse. So what brings you into town?

Gaines: Personal matter.

Lily: Ashland, hey. So good to see you.

Billy: Oh. That’s why you’re here, to meet with ashland locke. What’s the #1 retinol brand

“The young and the restless”

will continue. (Upbeat pop music throughout)

Victoria: [ Scoffs ] I have no doubts about this wedding. None, as in zero. I think you may be the one projecting.

Nikki: No, darling. It was just a little unsettling to learn about the monumental secret that ashland was keeping. And not so much the secret itself. As you pointed out, both victor and I are survivors of our fathers’ cruelty, so I can certainly relate to that.

Victoria: Ashland deserves more than that from us. His childhood was hell. When I think about his resilience and the resourcefulness that it took for him to overcome that, it makes me respect him all the more.

Nikki: It doesn’t bother you that it was so easy for him to lie to you?

Victoria: He already explained all of that. He has been telling this invented version of his early life for so long that it’s just — it started to feel real to him. It’s a coping mechanism, and I’m not gonna judge him for that. In fact, I’m glad that he told me the truth because now ashland knows that he can tell me anything. And you know what? It really bugs me that he had to confess to everyone. That should’ve been his decision, freely made.

Nikki: Do you think he ever would have told you on his own?

Victoria: [ Scoffs ] Well, I guess we’re never gonna know now since billy backed him into a corner.

Lily: So, how are the wedding plans going?

Ashland: Just fine, thank you.

Gaines: As I said, I’m here for personal reasons.

Billy: You got family in town?

Gaines: None that I know of.

Ashland: Would you please excuse me?

Lily: Yeah, sure.

Billy: Well, if you haven’t been to genoa city, welcome. It’s beautiful this time of year.

Ashland: I see you’ve met one of my lawyers.

Billy: Lawyer? That’s very interesting.

Ashland: I have many, of course. In town to handle some of the merger issues with locke communications group subdivisions.

Billy: Well, I’m sure you’ll be very happy to hear that jesse here takes the lawyer-client confidentiality very serious. He didn’t say a thing. In fact, we were talking about jesse gaines senior. Did some legal work for some news stations in jersey. Assuming the same stations that you own. Of course, this was a while ago, before camilla rhodes passed away. Thinking about it now, maybe the two of you worked together with her. Is that true? Do you — do you know jesse’s father?

Ashland: Jesse’s father was a good man, and we all miss him very much. Why don’t you and I go find someplace quieter where we can get some work accomplished?

Gaines: You got it.

Billy: Definitely something going on there.

Nick: Coming at you!

Phyllis: Oh! Oh. Okay.

Nick: That’s alright.

Phyllis: Okay.

Nick: You’ve gotten so much better.

Phyllis: Alright.

Nick: I mean, you are really getting the hang of it and you’re a natural.

Phyllis: Yeah, a thirsty natural.

Nick: I got you covered. Come on, let’s go.

Phyllis: Okay.

Nick: Got you right here.

Phyllis: Oh, you’re prepared with water.

Nick: Yep.

Phyllis: Okay.

Nick: This is gonna be great. Kids at this age, they’re like little sponges. They just take everything in and soak it all up.

Phyllis: Uh-huh.

Nick: And you should love this. Lot of parents that you know already involved.

Phyllis: Oh.

Nick: Um, the nelsons, julia sweetwater.

Phyllis: Oh. I know her.

Nick: Yeah, okay. Who’s the guy — the dad, he — he’s always saying the lame dad jokes and you think he’s hysterical?

Phyllis: You?

Nick: I walked right into that, didn’t I?

Phyllis: Uh-huh, yeah.

Nick: Yeah. No, mark mason.

Phyllis: Oh, mark.

Nick: “The mase.”

Phyllis: He signed up? Oh.

Nick: Yeah, yeah. You know what I was thinking, too? We could have, like, a — like, a pizza party, just get everyone involved, and the parents and the kids and get them all fired up. That kind of comradery is everything in youth sports.

Phyllis: Yeah, yeah. It’s also good for someone who wants a distraction from his sister’s upcoming marriage, right? We didn’t finish talking about that, but I’m assuming that you’re not going to pursue digging into ashland’s past. You just want to avoid upsetting your sister.

Nick: I mean, it’s more to it than that, you know? Um…you weren’t there when ashland was telling the story of his crappy childhood and his abusive dad and his mother who wouldn’t protect him, and, i mean, there was a lot of sadness in his voice.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Nick: Yeah.

Phyllis: I’m sure it reminded you of your dad’s history with his dad.

Nick: Yeah, it reminded me of when we confronted his dad, albert miller. That was one of the most awful, terrible human beings I’ve ever met. He said just crazy things to my dad. I felt so bad for him. It’s one of the few times in my life I’ve seen my dad just fall apart and cry like that. I don’t know, if — if that was true and ashland’s childhood was like that, I can understand why he would do everything he could to get away from that, you know? Especially now. I mean, I don’t want to make him relive this story and retell it while he’s going through chemo.

Phyllis: On the other hand?

Nick: On the other hand, i did talk to rey about it and kind of got his take.

Phyllis: You did? I’m surprised you would talk to rey.

Nick: He’s my friend, you know? I trust him. I know he would be discreet.

Phyllis: Mm. Okay, well, what did he say?

Nick: He said if there was nothing more to the story than ashland just being a scared kid who wanted to get away from his parents, then we should’ve found out what his real name is by now.

Phyllis: Yeah. What was his reasoning for that?

Nick: Well, changing your name is a legal process. You know, it requires filing paperwork and putting an ad out in the newspaper, and, you know, the fact that we haven’t been able to find any record of that means that ashland probably didn’t use the regular channels to make that happen, and, you know, that may not be anything, but I can’t stop thinking about that and what that could mean. I brought in ensure max protein,

Nick: Say hut!

Phyllis: Oh. Oh!

Nick: Alright!

Phyllis: Yay!

Nick: You have mastered the skill in no time.

Phyllis: And the crowd went wild.

Nick: It’s all about fundamentals, and working on that in practice, you are going to be an amazing coach.

Phyllis: You got to know this is not gonna happen. You know, right? Wha– ohh, nick. I’m running the grand phoenix. I mean, we have events scheduled until after the holidays. I — I got to be there. I can’t do this. I mean, I’m gonna let those kids down. I mean, what kind of message does that send, you know? Besides, I got to stay in my lane. This is —

Nick: You have everything it takes to be a great coach. You are tough, you have perseverance. I mean, you’re competitive. Look at the way you play video games.

Phyllis: Well, that’s the thing. I mean, don’t you think I’m a little too competitive? I mean, I don’t want to get in a little boy’s face, you know, make him cry. That would be horrible. Really, really bad. I would red-carded and thrown out of the game and…

Nick: That’s soccer.

Phyllis: Okay, see? I don’t even know that. I don’t even know that.

[ Sighs ] I will come to every game, i promise you. Every single game, I will bring incredible snacks and great drinks, and I will cheer you on. I will cheer you on, but it’s just — I — it’S…

Nick: Yeah, you’re busy. I get it. It’s cool.

Phyllis: Well, I mean, no, it’s not like that. I mean… I’m sorry.

Nick: It’s just when kids are this young, you got to — you got to cherish every moment and, I don’t know, I was kind of thinking, too, it’d be like a cool family thing, you know?

Phyllis: Well, why don’t you do a father-son thing, and then we can figure some family thing to do just the three of us, something else. Yeah? Okay, but listen, [Sighs] If you need a super-sleuth to find out the real identity to a certain billionaire, I’m your girl.

Nick: Alright. Let’s just head back.

Phyllis: Oh.

Victoria: Billy really makes me so mad sometimes. Like he has the right to stick his nose into my private business whenever he wants.

Nikki: Alright, forget about him for a minute. I am more concerned that you are making decisions for the right reasons, not because of your sympathy for ashland and what he’s been through or your anger for billy and what he’s put you through. But either one of those emotions is perfectly valid.

Victoria: Well, if that’s why you think I’m getting married, well, it’s no wonder that you’re worried, mother. Because it’s not the case. I’m marrying ashland because i love him. He makes me happy. He understands me in a way that no one does. Who else would have thought of it? He didn’t say it when he gave it to me, but obviously ashland is thinking about what’s gonna happen if he doesn’t survive his cancer. He wanted to give me something that would be here every day to remind me of how he saw me. And he hasn’t stopped there.

Nikki: No?

Victoria: No, he’s planning another surprise, something very big and extravagant. I’m not supposed to know about it, but I heard him earlier on the phone when I walked in.

Nikki: You know, that reminds me of your father, especially when we first got together. I mean, he got such a kick out of dazzling me with his larger-than-life gestures. He loved more than anything to see the look on my face when he surprised me.

Victoria: I remember you telling the stories. I just — I hope that ashland has fun with it because I’d much rather him be focused on — on this than — than his illness or whatever crap billy keeps trying to dig uP.

Ashland: I spoke to my banker. Half a million dollars, that’s all I could get for you today in cash. I will make monthly payments of the same amount for the next five months, and you’ll get your $3 million, and then you and i are done.

Gaines: A man like you, a man of your resources doesn’t have access to his funds. You expect me to believe that?

Ashland: It’s not about access. I don’t want to call undue attention to our arrangement. That’s the point of blackmail, to keep it quiet.

Gaines: What if you die next week?

Ashland: The outpouring of your concern is overwhelming. But don’t fret. I’m gonna live long enough to make you a wealthy man.

Gaines: You know, I would think that you would move heaven and earth if it meant you could be done with me once and for all. It’s obvious that billy abbott is suspicious. He wrote that exposé on adam newman, and I’m sure he’d love to give you the same treatment. If he found out exactly how you managed to buy camilla’s stations and that you’ve been paying me off all these years to keep it a secret, that’d make a pretty juicy story, wouldn’t it? Super emma just about sleeps in her cape.

Nikki: Darling, I hope you know I will be there for you no matter what you choose to do.

Victoria: Is that your subtle way of saying that you think I’m making a mistake going through with this wedding?

Nikki: [ Sighs ] I don’t think this is a situation where there are right or wrong answers. I think you just need to trust your instincts and trust your strength to get through whatever happens.

Victoria: Do you know what i can trust, too? Ashland’s love for me. I know I may not know the name that he was born with, but that doesn’t matter to me. I know what’s in his heart.

Ashland: You’re right about one thing. I can’t wait to end all contact with you.

Gaines: It’s agreed, then. I’ll take my down payment today, but I want the other $2.5 million within three days, or I go to ol’ billy and I sell the story to chanccomm.

Phyllis: Ah, this is amazing. You’re a natural. You have the fundamentals, for sure. Oh.

Nick: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: What happened? What happened?

Nick: Oh, I needed a break.

Phyllis: A break?

[ Laughs ] What? Are you mad at me? Are you made because I don’t want to be an assistant coach?

Nick: No, it’s fine.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ]

Nick: It’s fine.

Phyllis: Well, what’s going on? ‘Cause your head is not in the game, champ.

Nick: Did you mean what you said earlier when you said you would help me find out who ashland locke really is?

Phyllis: Yeah. Definitely. Do you want me to go ahead with looking into his past? I mean, you want me to take a whack at this? I’d be happy to.

Nick: Why? Why would you want to help me?

Phyllis: Well, because you’re yoU. And this matters to you. And you’re not gonna let it go until you get some answers.

Nick: Well, I’d be taking a pretty big risk, you know, of royally ticking off my sister, but I think it’s worth it. I cannot shake this feeling that ashland is hiding more than just his name, you know? Probably a lot more.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. Listen, if you’re wrong, if you’re wrong, victoria never has to know. Okay? And everything will be fine. It’ll put your mind at ease.

Nick: Well, if we do find something, you know, something major, I want to make sure victoria knows. Then she can do whatever she wants with that information.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. I agree. I mean, it’s not like billy. I mean, you don’t have a grudge or a vendetta. You know, you just want to protect your sister. You just care about your family. And I’m happy to help.

Nick: Mm. Alright. Let’s do it. Let’s find out who ashland locke was and how he became ashland locke.
