Double espressos, please? Yeah, can’t wait to see what you have planned next for newman media.

Sally: Oh, well, I can’t wait to show you and the rest of the world because it’s just the beginning.

Chloe: [ Clears throat ] Well, this is a nice surprise.

Adam: W-what is?

Chloe: Seeing you two here together, even though I know your plane landed just hours agO. You know, I can’t recall the last time I saw you two with such big smiles on your faces.

Adam: Hmm?

Sally: We’re very happy.

Chloe: Yeah, I understand that. Um…but I thought that you were going to keep this professional. So, did something happen in tuscany that you want to fill me in about?

Adam: Hmm…

[ Lock buzzes ]

Tessa: Buongiorno! Ah, I am back, finally. I am just so excited to see you. Mariah?

Mariah: Anyway, I was just in the neighborhood, so I thought i would drop this off. Is abby home?

Louise: No, she’s at society.

Mariah: Oh. Um… okay. Well, I came to check in on dominic. I know he had a cold.

Louise: [ Sighs ]

Mariah: Is there…a-a problem, because abby said that I was welcome anytime.

Louise: I just got him to sleep. It was difficult.

Mariah: I’m sure. The little dude really likes to fight his naps, especially when he’s overtired. It can feel like a triumph when he finally closes his eyes. So…

Louise: You only know the half of it.

Mariah: How about this? Why don’t you, um, why don’t you take a little bit of a breather, and I can watch over him for a minute?

Louise: Alright, but just for a few minutes.

Mariah: Okay.

Louise: Okay.

Mariah: Here you go. Hi! Hi, bowie. Hi. I’m back…finally.

[ Chuckles ] I’m so happy to see you.

Abby: You want to quit? Pamela, I thought you loved it here. I mean, you love the staff. The kitchen is state-of-the-art. Why would you want to leave?

Pamela: There is a new place about to open in the warehouse district. They made me an offer.

Abby: Okay, well, that’s — it’s pretty risky, don’t you think? I mean, you could start cooking there, and a few months from now they run out of cash? But society is here to stay. We have a large clientele, and they love your cooking. If this is about money, I-I can give you a raise. You deserve it.

Pamela: Thanks, but it’s not just about my salary. I want to create my own menu.

Abby: Look. I get that. But our customers, they love lola’s menu, and if we change it, I mean, aren’t they gonna go elsewhere?

[ Sighs ] Hey, um, you’re right. Right, you should have a chance to put an imprint on the food that you serve. So, um, how about we schedule a time to get together in the kitchen, and you can create a few dishes that you think should be on the menu, and we can take it from there? How does that sound?

Pamela: Thank you, abby. You’re the best.

Devon: Look at you, boss lady. I like the way you handled that very much.

Abby: Oh, yeah, for now. But if she’s looking for other jobs, then putting her trout dish on the menu isn’t gonna keep her for long.

Devon: I know you’ve gone through a lot of chefs since lola left.

Abby: Yes, big shoes to fill. Lola was like a superhero. I miss her so much, not just as a chef, but she was a good friend. I thought we were gonna be in this together.

[ Sighs ]

Devon: You okay?

Abby: Yeah, it’s just, you know, situations like this make you realize that there are no guarantees in life…about anything.

Devon: When’s the last time you heard from chance?

Abby: It was that obvious i was thinking about him?

Devon: Talk to me. Tell me what’s going on.

Abby: [ Sighs ] Alice loves the scent of gain so much,

Mariah: Oh, come here, guy. Oh, come here. Yes, yes, yes. Okay, there you go. You’re calm now. We’re getting calm. What’s that? How am i doing? Why, thank you for asking. That’s very polite. I’m kind of a mess. I’m trying hard to work through my issues. I am. You know, but I have this connection to you, and I don’t know how to let it go. I’ll just have to figure out a way to…to move forward through all of this. But I’m gonna get where I need to be, okay? Don’t you worry about that. Oh, man! It’s just hard. It’s so hard… not just on me. It’s been hard on everyone around me… especially tessa. Can I tell you a secret? When tessa was going to italy, I got really scared. I was worried that we weren’t on the same page about our future. And I’ll let you in on another little secret. I’m still scared.

Mariah’s voice: It’s me. You know how this works. Leave a message.

Tessa: Um, hey. Hey, I just got back. Don’t worry. I wasn’t expecting any welcome-home party or anything, you know? Maybe a few streamers and some balloons, definitely a cake, but something must have come up. So, um, I’m super-wiped from the trip. So, I’m not going anywhere. I’ll see you soon. Bye.

Abby: Yeah, it’s been hard not having chance around the past several months. I’m not hearing from him for weeks at a time, months. I thought he’d be home by the time dominic was born, and… I mean, he hasn’t even gotten to hold his own son in his arms. I mean, his own son.

Devon: You know that it’s okay to feel sad and to feel lonely and to feel frustrated, anything you’re feeling.

Abby: You know, I’ve never admitted this to anyone, but there are nights when I wake up, and I’ve just been crying in my sleep, calling out chance’s name. During the day, I can just keep myself busy. I can push the fear out. But at night… I don’t know how much more of this I can stand.

Adam: Chloe, you, um, you shouldn’t let your imagination get the best of you.

Sally: But if you must know —

Chloe: I must.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Sally: I’m just kidding. No, our plane landed a couple hours ago, and we went our separate ways. The fact that we ran into each other on the way here was just pure coincidence.

Adam: Uh-huh. Now, do you buy that story?

Chloe: Would you?

Adam: Look. Nothing happened in tuscany that you need to concern yourself with. I mean, other than the fact that sally had a major success with victoria’s dress. That’s all we were talking about when you were eavesdropping.

Chloe: No, I just — I just overheard. And actually there have been some new developments about the dress.

Adam: Well, I’ll leave you two to discuss them. I have back-to-back meetings at the grand phoenix. So, have fun.

Sally: Good developments?

Chloe: Actually, terrible.

Sally: What? I’ve seen nothing but positive press about the gown.

Chloe: Oh, I’m not talking about the dress itself. The whole world loved the dress.

Sally: Okay. So, then, what could possibly be the problem?

Chloe: There has been some personal fallout from our plan. And I think you should be prepared for what’s coming. I order my groceries online now.

Adam: Hey, chelsea. Uh, yeah, I just got back from tuscany. I was a little surprised to get invited to the wedding, but I’m actually glad I went. It was stunning. It was beautiful and majestic. Yeah, victoria’s gown was a hit. It was a bit of a coup for newman media, but sally — sally hit it big. Oh, um, you’re calling to talk about the e-mail from connor’s teacher? Well, I handled that already. I told him that I think he should be accelerated to the next course of math. Um, yes, I handled it without talking to you. I had to. I tried to get a hold of you, but I know you’re busy with your mom. They needed an answer. I mean, I’m his father. I can make those decisions. Do you not agree he should be accelerated to the next course? Okay, that’s what I thought. I mean, we’re generally on the same page about his education. So… then what’s the problem?

Mariah: Alright, bowie. I have definitely overstayed my welcome. That was a good talk. Thank you for listening. It kind of felt like old times. I’ll see you soon, okay? I promise.

[ Sighs, chuckles ] Okay! You have convinced me. I will stay for a little bit longer.

Abby: I always admired chance’s need to protect and help people. That’s who he is. It’s in his blood. I mean, he wants to help people all over the world. And when we got married, I guess I just — I never expected him to be called away by the feds. That’s why he joined the gcpd. He wanted to settle down, but we never got to settle down. He was gone before I knew it.

Devon: Yeah, I know. And you never expected for him to be gone for this long.

Abby: I thought maybe a couple weeks, a month. I never prepared myself for what it would feel like for him to be gone for this long, for an extended period of time in a dangerous situation. And it was difficult before dominic was born, but I guess it’s only inevitable that I’d be more afraid now.

Devon: Well, yeah, of course. You have a baby, you know? Having a baby heightens everything in life.

Abby: Well, I — I am done pouring my heart out because this is the part where you give me a pep talk, and you tell me that everything’s gonna be alright.

Devon: Oh, you don’t need me to tell you that, abby. You already know everything’s gonna be alright. You have to. You know, sure, chance has been gone longer than everybody expected, but you know that he’s doing everything in his power to come home to you and to his son as soon as he can.

Abby: Yeah.

Devon: Right?

Abby: You’re right. It’s just…

Devon: What? You wishing he never had took the case in the first place?

Abby: You nailed it, yeah.

Devon: Yeah, I know. I know. And you have every right to feel frustrated about this situation, because nobody could have predicted this, that he’d be gone for this long, that mariah would get kidnapped by stitch. What I do know, though, and what you should know is that you can handle anything that life throws at you because that’s what you’ve been doing this whole time that chance has been gone. You’ve been handling it. And you have to just keep doing it. You really don’t have a choice because you have a little boy now that needs you to stay strong. And you have all your family, and you have all your friends. And you have people like me. So, stop forgetting that.

Abby: [ Sighs ]


Adam: I know! I know it’s not your fault that you are not here. I’m not blaming you. Okay? Look. My meeting is here. I got to go. So, let’s discuss this later.

Devon: Hey, hey. I hope you know you didn’t have to hang up for me.

Adam: No, I’m glad for the interruption. I was talking to chelsea, and it wasn’t going well — about connor.

Devon: Uh-oh. Just having a disagreement?

Adam: No, actually, we were agreeing, which is why it’s so frustrating. I think she was just picking a fight because she feels pushed aside as a parent while she’s away.

Devon: Well, that’s understandable, right?

Adam: Yeah, I just wish she wasn’t taking it out on me. I’m just trying to do what’s best for my son. There’s just nothing I wouldn’t do for my kid.

Devon: Yeah, no, I see that. I’ve actually been very impressed by the way you stepped up for him.

Adam: Well, thank you.

Devon: A father being in a child’s life is half the battle. And there’s a lot of parents that just don’t understand that. So, it’s refreshing. But, um, you’re gonna need to fill me in on the latest promotions because I’m stepping up for nick since he’s extending his trip in europe.

Adam: Yeah, yeah, good for him.

Devon: He was a little reluctant to talk to you and victor. Is there a reason for that?

Adam: We just had a little family disagreement in italy.

Devon: That’s not gonna make work between newman media and new hope difficult, is it?

Adam: Well, let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. But, um, why don’t we get down to business?

Devon: Okay.

Mariah: “And silas the dragon found that he wasn’t so silly after all. He was strong and brave, and the whole town knew it. The end.” I have to say I’m not too sure about this one because he did seem like an incredibly silly dragon, and they just tacked a moral on at the end, but I’m glad you liked it.

Abby: Well, this is a nice surprise.

Mariah: Hi! I didn’t hear you come in.

Abby: Oh, I’m sure you were all wrapped up in silas’ journey.

[ Laughs ]

Mariah: Yes, I was, completely. I hope you don’t mind me just dropping by, but I was just checking on dominic, seeing how he’s recovering from the cold.

Abby: Well, no, you’re welcome here anytime.

Mariah: Thank you.

Abby: I’m surprised to see you. I mean, when you texted me and told me that you weren’t going to italy for the wedding, i thought that you’d stop by sooner, but it’s been days.

Mariah: Well, there were a lot of reasons for me not going to italy, but one of them was i wanted to be here in case dominic got sicker, and you needed my help. But then I didn’t want to overstep. So, I figured it would just be best to keep my distance.

Abby: I get it, yeah. Look. I don’t want there to be any weirdness between us. I mean, no awkwardness. You can come over here anytime.

Mariah: Of course, yeah. But speaking of awkward, I have breast milk for you!

[ Both laugh ] Yeah, I-I know that you’re probably running low, and you were talking about weaning dominic before, but I figured you could just use some, anyway.

Abby: Thank you. Yeah, I will definitely put it to good use, but well, I talked to the pediatrician, and she’s comfortable with switching to formula. So, I think after this… look. I-I know that that must be difficult for you to hear, and i promise you I am not shutting you out. I think this is a good time to transition to formula. So, I hope that’s not a problem.

Chloe: Lauren tore me to shreds. She was not happy that her designer’s dress got tossed aside for yours.

Sally: [ Sighs ] I’m so sorry.

Chloe: Look. I am just afraid that she is going to unload on you. So, I just want you to be prepared.

Sally: Yeah. I mean, I knew there was a possibility that lauren would be mad at me. I just feel terrible that you got caught in the crossfire.

Chloe: Oh, listen. It’s fine, honestly. I probably deserve it. In hindsight, I could have given her a heads-up out of courtesy.

Sally: Yeah, right. But if lauren knew, she would have alerted victoria, and it would have ruined our whole scheme.

Chloe: Don’t — don’t say scheme. No, that makes me feel so much worse. We had a plan, and our plan worked out better than we hoped. And now I just have to deal with the less-pleasant consequences of my actions, which is fine. I-I have — I have dealt with it before. I know the drill. It’s really no biggie.

Sally: You’re not being honest.

Chloe: I beg your pardon?

Sally: This is a big deal. Lauren is a part of your family, and I feel terrible. I have to find a way to fix it. I will just tell her that I did all of this behind your back, and you had no idea what I was up to.

Chloe: It’s too late. I already confessed that I knew about everything. So, um, I appreciate the offer.

Sally: Well, I mean, if there’s anything at all that i can do, I will do it.

Lauren: Oh, I think you’ve done more than enough already. Feeling stressed in your skin?

“The young and the restless”

will continuE.

Sally: You’re mad. I get that.

Lauren: You proved me wrong. When you schemed to get summer out of the country…

[Sighs] I had to fire you. And I actually thought that you would respect me, even after that. But you proved me wrong even then! You are just conniving and self-serving.

Sally: I had to rebuild my image and my reputation.

Lauren: Oh, my god. You have a very funny way of showing that. Going to italy? Stealing my designer’s dress and replacing it with yours right before the ceremony? Employing the same tactics that tarnished your reputation in the very beginning?

Sally: I think you have some facts wrong. I did not steal your designer’s dress. I moved it. And victoria had the chance to decide which dress she wanted to wear.

Lauren: And this is your defense?

Sally: Okay, look. I-I really don’t expect you to understand.

Lauren: Yeah? You know what the problem is? I actually do understand. You love to give these big speeches, proving yourself to everyone in your life. But the truth of the matter is, you’re just interested in your own success. You’re going to alienate everyone, everyone here, and it’s going to happen, sooner rather than later. This is a much smaller town than los angeles. And when you realize the best thing that you could do is leave, I won’t shed a tear.

Sally: Okay. Well, I guess nothing I say will change how you feel right now. So, I can just hope that one day you will see me in a different light.

Chloe: Are you done with me, too? Or do I still have a chance to repair things between us?

Devon: Alright, man. Well, this all looks good. So, I will — I’ll tell nick about our progress, and we’ll take it from there.

Adam: Great.

Devon: Yeah.

Adam: Well, thank you for taking the time, devon.

Devon: Absolutely.

Adam: I, um, I hadn’t realized how much I miss running into you, when we were neighbors.

Devon: Well, the building isn’t the same without you. I’ll tell you that.

[ Both chuckle ]

Adam: Well, I’d walk out with you, but I have another meeting in a half-hour.

Devon: That’s fine. Not a problem. That’s plenty of time for you to call chelsea back and smooth things over.

Adam: What? You want me to call her back, so she can keep yelling at me?

Devon: No, no. I want you to make things right so that feelings don’t fester, and then it’s ten times worse the next time you talk to her.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Devon: You know?

Adam: You’re right. Of course. I just don’t know why I’m the one that has to extend an olive branch.

Devon: Well, I mean, if you think about it, man, you’re the one that gets to go home to your son every day. She’s hundreds of miles away, missing him and feeling left out. So, you know, take the high road because you can afford to be generous. See ya.

Adam: See ya.

Mariah: I loved being able to provide milk for dominic. It made me feel like I had a unique role in his life. And it’s hard to hear that, you know, it’s no longer needed. But I understand.

Abby: You do?

Mariah: Before all this, I — I used to think that I was incredibly smart and savvy, always one step ahead. But…I did not realize how intense this would be. And I need to get back to myself. You know? That’s one of the other reasons why I didn’t go to italy. I didn’t want to be out there, celebrating with everybody and putting on a smile when I just wasn’t in the mood.

Abby: And tessa was okay with you not going to the wedding?

Mariah: Well, she wasn’t thrilled that I opted out. But I needed time for myself. I needed a routine and structure and to do some deep, deep reflection.

Abby: And did you come up with any big conclusions?

Mariah: I did.

The best kept skincare secret?

[ Doorbell rings ]

Abby: Hold that thought one second.

Devon: Hey.

Abby: Hi!

Devon: I just wanted to come and see if you’re feeling any better because I felt bad I had to run off to that meeting.

Abby: Well, thank you. That’s very sweet. I am. I was. I hope I still am. Come on in. Mariah’s here.

Devon: Oh, really? Hey.

Mariah: Hi!

Devon: It’s good to see you. Am I interrupting anything, or…

Mariah: No, no, not at all. In fact, you should all be here for this.

Devon: Okay.

Mariah: So, I just wanted to say that I love you both. And you’ve been incredible through this whole ordeal. You know, we all have a bond bringing dominic into this world, and it’s one that I’m gonna cherish forever. I-I know that you’ve been worried about me lately. And I’ve been struggling with my role in dominic’s life. I’M…I’m having a hard time letting go. I’ll admit that. It’s just been hard, you know, sorting through all of this jumble of emotions, especially for somebody who doesn’t like dealing with messy emotions. But I’m working on it. And I just hope that you both believe me when I say that I am doing much, much better now.

Abby: Well, I am happy and relieved that you’re feeling better.

Devon: Yeah, so am I. You seem a lot more happy. You seem a lot more calm.

Abby: There was a wall between us that I never wanted. And when I walked in and saw you reading to dominic, I was thrilled, because I want you to have an important role in his life, a big role, but only when you’re ready for it.

Mariah: I’m ready. I am. And I want us to take that step together.

Devon: Absolutely. We’re still the baby chancellor crew, right? Or you know what? We should probably call ourselves the baby dominic crew now.

Abby: Ah, I love the sound of that.

Devon: Yeah?

Abby: Mm-hmm.

Devon: Think so.

Adam: [ Exhales ] Hey, chelsea. Look. I know you were not planning to hear from me again so soon, but I needed to tell you that I was wrong earlier. And I should not have made that decision without you. And from now on, when situations like that come up, I will not make them without talking to you. I know. I mean, if we’re gonna co-parent like this, we need to be able to talk to each other no matter where we are. So, um, how’s your mom doing? Okay. Do you have any idea when you’re gonna be able to leave her on her own and come back to genoa city? Okay, well, if you want to come back, I don’t understand the hesitation, chelsea. Okay, that’s not what I’m saying, but, but —

Sally: Hey. Are you alright?

Adam: The mother of my son just hung up on me. But besides that, I am fine.

Sally: Are you sure? Because you seem upset.

Adam: I said that I was fine. So, you can take my word for it. Now, please, tell me. What do you want? We’re eating and drinking foods and beverages

Lauren: Look. Um, I think I was a little harsh on you yesterday. It’s just that I was so angry.

Chloe: You had every right to be. I am so sorry.

Lauren: And I accept your apology. What you did was misguided. It was not vicious and conniving. You are on a completely different level from sally.

Chloe: Well, you made it pretty clear that you have no plans to forgive her.

Lauren: I say this out of love. Cut her loose. Do not continue to work with her. She will betray you, too, and you will end up in the exact same position I am — stabbed in the back.

Adam: Sally, look. I’m sorry. Alright? I’m sorry. I’m dealing with a lot today, with work and with chelsea. Will you please sit down? Please? Tell me why you came by.

Sally: [ Sighs ] I had a run-in with lauren. She’s furious that victoria wore my dress instead of the one from fenmore’S.

Adam: Well, I’m sorry you had to go through that.

Sally: I just figured you should know. And I also — I just kind of wanted a friendly ear.

Adam: Well, don’t worry about it. You don’t work for lauren. And victoria made her own decision about the dress.

Sally: But it still didn’t feel good to be told off by someone whose opinion matters to me.

Adam: Trust me. I have been there and done that more times than I can count. Don’t beat yourself up about it. It’s not like you committed some great crime against lauren. You’re in a competitive business, okay? You won this round. She may win the next. I mean, does that help put it in perspective?

Sally: Yeah. It does. I wish I could reciprocate and, you know, do something to make you feel better.

Adam: A productive, profitable day would make me feel better. Or at least it would distract me. I’m gonna walk into this restaurant and go to my meeting. I’ll see you later.

Sally: Yeah. See you around.

Devon: It seems like mariah is really finding her footing.

Abby: Yeah. She’s on a better, healthier path.

Devon: Yeah. Makes me happy to see that she put you in a better mood.

Abby: Well, like you said, my friends and family will always be there for me, and that goes both ways. I woke up this morning feeling blue, and then I saw you and mariah, and it turned my whole day around.

Devon: Yeah? That’s all it took? Are you sure you’re okay?

Abby: Yeah, yeah. So, you don’t have to stick around here and be my cheerleader anymore.

Devon: Oh, I don’t mind doing that, but I feel like you’re kicking me out. Is that what’s happening?

Abby: I’m never kicking you out, but I’m sure you have a hundred things to be doing.

Devon: Ah, not quite a hundred, but…

Abby: See? Look. I would love nothing more than for you to hang out with me and dominic all afternoon, but that’s not necessary. I’m okay.

Devon: Well, I am still gonna come back and check up on you. You can count on that. You can count on me. Okay?

Abby: Devon?

Devon: Yeah?

Abby: Thank you.

Devon: Of course. I’ll see you.

[ Door opens, closes ]

Abby: Chance, where are you? When are you coming home?

[ Sighs ]

Tessa’s voice: Something from tuscany to give you a taste of the beauty of the land and the romance of the wedding. There was so much love in the air, but there was a little something missing for me because you weren’t there to share it. This gift is my way of making up for that.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

Tessa’s voice: Okay, I bought it at the airport on the way out of town. I didn’t have time to do much shopping, but I thought of you constantly, and I missed you so much. I love you. Tessa.

Tessa: Hi!

Mariah: Hi. And welcome home.

Tessa: Oh, thank you. Oh, did you get your present?

Mariah: I did. It was very, very thoughtful.

[ Both laugh ]

Tessa: It was either that or some playing cards with the italian flag on it.

Mariah: Well, you made the right choice. I’m sorry I wasn’t here when you got home. Thought your flight got in later.

Tessa: Oh, it’s okay. It landed early. Oh, I missed you so much.

Mariah: I missed you, too.

Tessa: We’ve got a lot to talk about.

Mariah: Yes, we do. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, and I’ve made some important decisions.

Tessa: Like what?

Mariah: Later, okay? We’ll talk later. For now, sleep.

Tessa: Okay. I’m pretty tired.

Mariah: Yes. Yes, you are.
