Ashley: I hope you didn’t come here for an update about abby, ’cause i haven’t heard a thing.
Devon: No, I came here to tell you that I have.
Ashley: Is she okay? What did she say?
Devon: She left me a note.
Ashley: “Devon, knowing dominic is safe with you is the only way I can do this. And I do need to do it. Not just for me, but for dom. Please tell him I love him more than anything in the world. And I’m afraid this is gonna take longer than I first thought. Thanks for being there for us. Abby.” But where did she go?
Devon: I think I have an idea.
Abby: If I charter this jet, it is imperative that I have your absolute discretion. You can tell no one that I am taking this flight. Especially my father, victor newman. Whatever your silence costs, i am willing to pay. Round trip to majorca, spain. One passenger flying there, and two coming back.
[ Sighs ]
Phyllis: There’s a reason our marriage didn’t work out.
Jack: Yeah, we went through a lot, more than our share of heartache, but also some great times. Some of the best times in my life. And you are still the most captivating, fascinating woman I have never known…and sometimes so gorgeous, it hurts.
Phyllis: Jack —
Jack: No, let me finish. You are also complicated and frustrating and hot-headed and careless and…
Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Yeah.
Jack: But all in all, a pretty spectacular package.
Phyllis: Ah. Well, you have had too much to drink.
Jack: You know, I keep thinking maybe — maybe the fact that we’ve spent so much time together lately, I… maybe the reason I didn’t move on with my romantic life was… ’cause I already was with the most amazing woman I’ve ever known.
Phyllis: [ Exhales sharply ]
Phyllis: Hey! Oh!
Jack: I’m sorry, I did not mean to startle you. I —
Phyllis: No, no, you — you didn’T. I was just thinking about things. I was thinking about work.
Jack: Well, I hope you’re doing better than you were when I ran into you earlier.
Phyllis: Oh. You didn’t come to take my temperature, did you?
Jack: Not to worry, a colleague suggested I meet him here for a quick meeting, but nothing more.
Phyllis: Well, I mean, ’cause I am fine.
Jack: Well, glad to hear it. You — you look…okay.
Phyllis: I am okay. Really, I am. Not that you can’t check on me, because you can check on me. You know, that’s what we do with each other, you know? Because we’re friends.
Jack: Duly noted.
Phyllis: Yeah. Hey, did you happen to see, um…that chanccomm article on ashland?
Jack: Read every word of it.
Phyllis: Yeah, and then that gaines guy recanting his story and chanccomm has to issue a retraction? That’s a mess.
Jack: Yeah, I haven’t talked to billy about it, but I think he got caught up in trying to expose locke’s shady past and, I’m sure, hoped to bring adam and victor down a notch or two. It’s gonna cost him. And lily.
Ashland: I’m confused. You’ve worked yourself into a lather talking about how I’m trying to ruin you and your partner, but if anybody has the right to be upset, it’s me. I’m the victim of your underhanded tactics.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] I think we both know that’s a lie. As much of a lie as gaines saying that the story about your past is not true.
Ashland: You know, a wise person would never have willingly staked their company’s reputation on the word of a vindictive blackmailer, which is exactly what billy did.
Lily: You weaponized gaines and aimed him directly at chanccomm.
Ashland: And the two of you pulled the trigger.
Lily: Someone hacked into our server.
Ashland: And got ahold of a story billy had ready to go? If the hacking even happened, it only expedited its release. Since you’re the cautious and the savvy one, I imagine you tried to dissuade your partner, but he’s impossible to control, which is why I chose to remain alone at the top when I was building my empire. You tether yourself to the wrong person, you both go down together.
Billy: What are you waiting for? I told you what you wanted to hear, victor. You won.
Billy: I walk away from the company that I poured my heart and soul into. You, adam, and ashland, you promise to leave chanccomm and lily alone. Let her run it on her own, free of any litigation or retaliation or sabotage of any kind. I’m offering you my head on a platter, man. Is that still not enough for you?
Victor: Interesting proposition.
From the very first touch,
Jack: No problem. See you then.
Phyllis: Bad news?
Jack: No, my meeting was rescheduled. Oh, dear, that means it looks i am just here for you.
Phyllis: Well, that’s not true, unless you had esp and you knew your meeting was gonna get canceled. And we both know that’s not true.
Phyllis: You doubt my ability to see the future? Oh, ye of little faith.
Phyllis: [ Laughs ] Well, you are very good at many things, but being a prophet is not one of them.
Jack: You want me to prove it?
Phyllis: Yeah, prove it.
Jack: Okay. Things have been strange between us. I think you feel it, too. If we weren’t self-conscious enough because of feelings that I confessed, now that you and nick are no longer together, it makes things even more awkward.
Phyllis: I’m not awkward. I’m not.
Jack: You’re interrupting my prophecy.
Jack: I see a time in the not-too-distant future where things between us will go back to normal. We will laugh and talk and challenge each other and question each other and come to each other with advice without a moment of awkwardness. And we will go on with our lives like we did before I opened my big mouth. I see it clear as day.
Phyllis: Uh —
Jack: Have a good day.
Devon: I mean, I can’t really talk because when people told me that my wife was missing and presumed dead overseas, I got on a plane and went looking for her.
Ashley: Even after everybody told you that it was incredibly dangerous and the most important thing you could do is to be present for your child?
Devon: Believe me, I know this isn’t logical for abby.
Ashley: You’re right, she’s thinking with her heart.
Devon: Yeah. She obviously thinks that this is what she needs to do to heal, and that’s go and see for herself if chance is alive.
Ashley: Or face the reality that he’s not.
Devon: We need to have somebody looking in valencia for us.
Ashley: [ Sighs ] I was so sure that we convinced her it was too dangerous.
Devon: Well, she thinks it’s worth the risk.
Ashley: Well, I sure as hell don’T. We’ve got to find her before it’s too late.
Victor: This proposal of yours is quite intriguing. It shows qualities that I never thought you possessed. You’re actually willing to sacrifice for the sake of others.
Billy: Look, I dragged lily into my plan to threaten you and adam. My choice, my fault. I take full responsibility. You take me out of the equation. You let lily run chanccomm on her own. She will do it with integrity. She doesn’t need to be punished for the choices that I’ve made.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Victor: Alright, billy boy, i will consider your proposal.
Billy: You do realize that everything I’ve done here, all of it, was to protect your daughter.
Victor: Now you’re warming the cockles of my heart, billy boy. I’ve got some other business to attend to. Why don’t you show yourself out?
Lily: Do you really think a lawsuit is gonna stop us? This is not over, locke, not by a long shot.
Ashland: [ Chuckles ] I think we both know it is. Your news outlet published libelous statements about me, statements that tarnished my name and my achievements.
Lily: I’m sorry, do you think that now that you’re married to victoria you’re some kind of saint? Your name has always been associated with heartless behavior.
Ashland: Well, the difference is that those other stories about me that were published were true.
Lily: This is true, too, even if you want to claim otherwise.
Ashland: You failed the first lesson of journalism. You relied on one source for all of your information — a man who admitted that his motivation was purely out of hatred and — and jealousy. And he recanted it, which means my lawsuit is anything but frivolous.
Lily: Okay, if you don’t want to admit the truth, that’s fine, although it’s pretty obvious what is true, given the fact that you told victoria the exact same story that gaines told us.
Ashland: Oh, what makes you think that I did that?
Lily: Billy and I were there. We talked to victoria.
Ashland: Were any of these conversations on the record?
Lily: No, of course not.
Ashland: Well, then who’s to say they actually happened?
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Okay, look, if you want to play these games, that is fine, but honestly, I’m disappointed. I really expected more from you.
Ashland: Really? You just got finished telling me how despicable I am.
Lily: You know, I’m actually really surprised that you even went along with adam and victor’s plot. I mean, they used your past as their weapon. I mean, I really didn’t think the locke ness monster would do something like that.
Ashland: Nobody uses me.
Lily: Well, I guess they do now. ‘Cause you know this isn’t about business, right? This is about victor’s long-standing battle with billy.
Lily: So why are you going along with it?
Ashland: I’m not under victor’s thumb, if that’s what you’re implying. I’m simply trying to squelch an accusation that paints me in a terrible light in the eyes of the world and, more importantly, in the eyes of my son, and you would do the same if you were in my position.
Lily: Do not compare yourself to me.
Ashland: I admire your bravery, so I’ll give you some free advice. This isn’t about victor’s hatred of your partner. It’s about billy’s inability to let go of victoria.
Lily: He has.
Ashland: Open your eyes. Billy wasn’t doing the world a favor by publishing a story about my so-called checkered past. No. He did it for an audience of one. You see, billy is so determined that I look like the villain in victoria’s eyes that he will go to any extreme, even publishing a story — a ridiculous story — without doing due diligence. And if you’re really concerned about protecting chanccomm — and yourself — cut him loose and move forward on your own.
Billy: Bad news travels fast. I’m sure you couldn’t wait to get over here.
Jack: Believe me, this is the last thing I want to share, but I just learned it this morning and I think you need to know.
Billy: What? What happened?
Jack: There’s no easy way to say this. There was an explosion at chance’s safe house. He is missing and presumed dead.
Billy: What? You sure that he was in there?
Jack: They found some of his personal effects at the site — his watch, his wedding ring.
Billy: Geez, jack. I got to be honest, with everything he’s survived, I kind of thought that he was invincible.
Jack: Yeah, I think we all did.
Billy: I never for a second thought that he wasn’t gonna come back here and raise his kid. How’s abby?
Jack: She’s struggling. She’s really struggling. So much so that she’s left dominic with devon while she tries to find a way to put her life in motion again.
Billy: How’s nina? Have you talked to my mom, by chance?
Jack: I haven’t talked to either of them, but I’m sure they are both shattered.
Billy: Yeah. I’ll reach out to abby.
Billy: My mom left me a few messages, but I haven’t been able to get back to her yet. Now I know that the first couple were probably because of this, and the other ones are because she’s the ceo of this company and she’s probably wondering what the hell just happened. And I know you know, so let’s have it. I’m sure you have plenty to say on the matter.
Victor: So, when did you receive this?
Devon: Right after I spoke with mrs. Newman. I went home. I was upstairs with dominic for just a little while, and when i came back down, abby must have slipped it under my door.
Ashley: Did you speak with anyone that saw her?
Devon: I checked with the doorman, and he said he didn’t see her go in or out, which means she either used the back door to the building or she sent somebody.
Victor: So she obviously didn’t want to be seen.
Ashley: That makes me feel even worse because, clearly, she has planned this escape. She has you taking care of the baby. She sneaks out of here before anybody’s awake. She must’ve felt so alone, like she couldn’t be honest with anybody.
Victor: Because she knew if she had told us what she intended to do, we would have stopped her, which is what we’re gonna do now. If you’re on medicare, remember,
Lauren: Just the woman i wanted to see.
Phyllis: Oh, again? Why? What have I done now?
Lauren: Nothing, but I heard that your escape club is the perfect place to relax and unwind and have your greatest fantasies come true. I’ve read that in your ad.
Phyllis: Yeah, yeah. Yeah [Speaks indistinctly] Yeah. Is this for you?
Lauren: [ Chuckles ] No. It’s for one of my buyers. She’s coming into town, and i thought I’d treat her.
Phyllis: Oh, she must be a great buyer, because you’re rewarding her like this.
Lauren: I know. Well, she’s one of the best. And between, you know, taking care of fenmore’s needs and raising her family, she doesn’t have a lot of time for herself, so I thought maybe you and i could toss some ideas around and give her an afternoon to remember.
Phyllis: Oh, for sure. What does she like?
Lauren: Wow, that’s a really good question.
Lauren: I have no idea. Think I need to call her.
Phyllis: It’s hard to know what any of us like, isn’t it? What we think we like or what others think we should have. Or what’s bad for us.
Lauren: I don’t think we’re talking about the escape club anymore.
Phyllis: What? Why would you say that?
Lauren: Well, are you having second thoughts about nick? Do you think you want to give it another try?
Phyllis: Oh, no, mnh-mnh. It’s definitely over. It’s over. Um…I just think being single has me off-kilter, that’s all.
Lauren: Well, and I think i know why. Because it’s very hard for you to let people in, but once they’re in your heart, you have a hard time letting them go.
Phyllis: Oh, there are a lot of people I’ve let out of here, trust me.
Lauren: Yeah, I’m sure, but…I know you’ll always care about nick, just like you’ve never stopped caring about jack.
Phyllis: You know what? I have a great idea for your buyer. Just give a second. I’m gonna look into it.
Jack: Okay, as long as you brought it up, what the hell happened?
Billy: Well, I’ll tell you this much, traci could sure write one hell of a book about this story. Guarantee it would be a best-seller. Corporate intrigue, sabotage, revenge — it’s got it all.
Jack: This blackmailer, this gaines — you put all your faith in him? He sounds like a pretty shady character.
Billy: Yeah, jack, you know what? I really don’t want to get into the gory details right now. All I’m gonna say is that i thought I had it under control, and I didn’T. But everything in that story is 100% true.
Jack: Even though he’s on record denying it?
Billy: All part of victor and adam’s elaborate scheme to bring me to my knees.
Jack: Okay, maybe you better share some of those gory details with me, then.
Billy: I brought gaines to tuscany with me for the sole reason to make sure that victoria knew the truth about the man that she was gonna marry.
Jack: You did? How come I never saw him?
Billy: Because I didn’t want anyone to see him until I was able to talk to victoria. Victor and adam found him and they flipped him to their side. Threatening him, giving him money, probably both. Jesse gaines cares about his bank account more than anything else.
Jack: And yet this is the guy you aligned yourself with.
Billy: Yes, jack! It was an error in judgment, alright? What else do you want me to say? You saw the retraction, did you not?
Jack: In today’s world, that is almost meaningless. Come on, the story is out there. Millions of sites have covered it, and the damage done to chanccomm you can’t undo.
Billy: You don’t think that i know that? I screwed up, okay? I made a deal with a double-dealing son of a bitch, and I got played. I never intended to release that article. It was simply a threat to make sure that victor and adam stopped coming after my company. And it blows my mind that nobody understands that the only thing I was trying to do was find out the truth. They’re all criminals! I gambled. It’s what you do in business, right? I rolled the dice and I lost.
Devon: After I found that note, I gave my private investigator, denise tolliver, a call and put her on the case to find abby.
Victor: Well, I’ll put my people on it, as well. Together, we’ll find her, okay?
Ashley: Maybe they’ll find out that she never left town. Though, actually, every instinct in my body is telling me that she’s probably left the country.
Victor: It just occurs to me she may have chartered a plan to cover her tracks.
Devon: She could be in the air right now.
Victor: I don’t give a damn where she is — spain or here. We’ll find her.
Devon: Well, don’t you think we need to put somebody in valencia?
Ashley: Well, it can’t be you, devon. I mean, abby’s counting on you to stay with the baby.
Devon: No, absolutely, i wouldn’t — wouldn’t dream of leaving him.
Victor: I have some business to attend to, but I can easily rearrange my schedule.
Ashley: That won’t be necessary. I’m going. How did olay top expensive creams?
“The young and the restless”
Jack: I am not here to condemn you. I’m not here to judge you.
Billy: Thank you.
Jack: I am, however, deeply concerned about your gambling analogy.
Billy: Are you kidding me? Jack, my life is falling apart. I’m not really concerned about my choice of —
Jack: Gambling has been a major problem in your life, billy, and I’m not just talking about the money you lost playing poker. You were ceo of jabot, you were reckless, you took great chances, you took giant risks that you knew would pay off, only they didn’t, and you lost your job.
Billy: And you see history repeating itself, like I haven’t learned a thing.
Jack: You have put everything that you and lily have built here in jeopardy because you’re still willing to take those crazy chances. Lily deserves more than that. So does jill, so do your kids.
Billy: I’m gonna ask you to tread lightly, jack.
Jack: You are on the verge of losing everything you have, billy. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you, you have run out of second chances. You’ve got to find some way to turn this thing around.
Billy: I already have. I just did that.
Jack: Wait, what does that mean?
Billy: I went to victor and told him that he won. Told him that I will step down as long as he agrees to leave chanccomm and lily alone.
Lily: Sorry, you did what?
Victor: But why would you put yourself into the same danger that abby is in? It doesn’t make any sense.
Ashley: I can bring somebody from your security team. Preferably someone who speaks spanish and knows the lay of the land.
Victor: [ Sighs ] You really don’t want me to go, do you?
Ashley: It’s not about that, victor, honestly. I think I have a better chance of convincing her to come back home. I can appeal to her, mother-to-mother.
Victor: Alright. I guess that makes sense. I’ll call my people to get the jet ready, and then you can take off for spain as soon as you’re packed, okay?
Ashley: Thank you.
[ Cellphone rings ] It’s my private investigator. Yes? What? Okay, I’ll be right there.
Devon: What did he say?
Victor: Apparently, they found someone fitting abby’s description at a restaurant right next to the motel outside of town.
Devon: Really? Well, I’d like to go, if that’s okay.
Ashley: I’ll stay here with the baby and get packed.
Victor: I’ll keep you posted.
Ashley: Okay. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
Devon: Thank you, ashley.
Ashley: Hi, my love. Hi, my love.
Jack: I’m gonna get out of the way and leave you two alone.
Billy: Probably a good idea.
Lily: Please tell me that i misheard you.
Billy: No, you didn’T. I went straight to the source of the problem.
Lily: To victor.
Billy: Enough is enough, lily.
Lily: [ Sighs ]
Billy: Look, we both know that I am his target, okay? You don’t need to get caught up in all this mess. So I told him that I’m gonna walk away from chanccomm, leave you in charge, as long as he calls off the dogs.
Lily: Billy, what the hell were you thinking? You cannot make a unilateral decision like that. Look, was this supposed to be, like, a noble gesture or something? There is nothing noble about making a decision that so profoundly affects chanccomm without even talking to me about it first.
When you have nausea,
Devon: I think we’re too late. There’s nothing here. There’s no bags or anything.
Victor: Not really surprising. I guess she’s trying to stay a step ahead of us.
Devon: Well, yeah, the clerk said that she — she paid with cash and checked in under an alias, so I’d say so.
Victor: You know, the only good thing about people running away is that they make a mistake, they slip up.
Devon: Well, do you think she left something behind?
Victor: Let’s take a look.
Devon: Hey, hang on a second.
Devon: There’s something right here. It’s a military pin.
Victor: I’ll be damned. I bet you that belongs to chance.
Devon: I think it has to belong to chance, right?
Victor: Oh, my god.
Devon: Housekeeping hasn’t been in here yet. This wouldn’t just be hanging around like that.
Victor: That just confirms my worst fears. She probably thinks that chance is still alive.
Ashley: This is your lion. That’s right. That’s your lion, your friend.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
[ Doorbell rings ] It’s open.
Jack: Hey, I hope I’m not interrupting.
Ashley: No, come on in.
Jack: I just came to — oh, look who’s here. Hey, dominic. God, isn’t he a cutie?
Ashley: Isn’t he just the cutest?
Jack: I came by to tell you i went to see billy and tell him the news about chance.
Ashley: Thank you for doing that.
Jack: And I wanted to check on abby.
Ashley: She’s not here. She’s gone. She left a note for devon saying that she had something she had to do and it was gonna take her longer than she anticipated.
Jack: Well, it had to be important for her to leave this little bundle of joy for even a minute. Any idea where she is?
Ashley: Uh, yeah, she’s looking for chance. She doesn’t believe that he died in that attack on the safe house, jack.
Jack: Oh, god. Clearly, she needs more answers than she’s getting from the state department.
Ashley: Exactly. I’m going to spain to find her and bring her back.
Jack: Wait, you’re going alone?
Ashley: Well, I have somebody from victor’s security team. I have them.
Jack: You have me, too. I’ll go with you.
Ashley: I don’t need you to, jack.
Jack: No, I’m sure you’re in good hands, but, no, I’ll come along. I can help. It might be good to have somebody else along. I’m not taking no for an answer. Besides, it’s probably a good time for me to get out of town.
Jack: I need a change of pace.
Ashley: What are you running from?
Jack: You have bigger problems to worry about than my personal life.
Ashley: Okay. Alright. You’re avoiding my question, so now I’m suspicious. Tell me what’s wrong.
Jack: [ Sighs ]
Phyllis: Alright, so I put this list together for your buyer. It’s guaranteed to blow her mind.
Lauren: Ooh! I trust your judgment.
Phyllis: Ah, no one’s said that to me before.
Lauren: Huh. Good. Let’s go back to discussing what we were talking about before you scampered off.
Phyllis: Uh, excuse me, i don’t scamper.
Lauren: What do you call it? You had the strangest reaction after I said jack’s name.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] It’s because I’ve been having all of these thoughts that i can’t get out of my mind ever since I had this conversation with amanda, telling her about my history with jack and nick.
Lauren: And what on earth did she say to you that got you so worked up?
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] She said that my relationship with jack is not entirely platonic.
Lauren: That’s actually very astute. It’s never been platonic.
Phyllis: I did not cheat on nick.
Lauren: Oh, I don’t mean to imply that you did. It’s just that you and jack could never be just pals. You could just never be.
Phyllis: Why not?
Lauren: Because he’s handsome, generous, charismatic jack who thinks the world of you, and you admire and appreciate him. Honey, you have been through so much with and without him, and it’s just always been special between the two of you. Undeniable, unbreakable.
Phyllis: Oh, gosh. I just keep on thinking of us and — oh, gosh. I just don’t know what to do with these thoughts that just keep on popping into my head.
Lauren: You know, I, uh… I’ve been able to talk to him a little bit lately, and not to break confidence, but he has been saying that he’s missing having someone special in his life. And for him, you are the golden standard.
Phyllis: Wait, you’re not implying that jack and I should get back together.
[ Chuckles ] You’re not implying that. That’s ludicrous. That’s ludicrous, given all of our history.
Lauren: No, I — well [Chuckles] You two did love each other enough to get married twice. You’ve never been able to be completely out of each other’s lives, so, yeah, you’re right. That’s no sign that there’s residual feeling.
Phyllis: We’re friends. We have a very special friendship.
Lauren: Mm-hmm. And, you know, now that I think back, you were so determined to prove that sally was up to something. Are you sure that it was summer you were protecting?
Phyllis: Oh, oh, seriously? Um, I was protecting you and your company, as well.
Lauren: Uh-huh, and jack.
Phyllis: Yeah, and jack because sally’s horrible and she should never be with someone like jack.
Lauren: And you weren’t just a little bit jealous?
Phyllis: Oh, jealous? Um…are you serious? Really? Is that where you’re going? Jealous.
Lauren: Come on. I love you guys.
Phyllis: [ Exhales sharply ] I — I don’t know what it is between me and jack. I don’t know what it is. It is a very special connection. That’s all. Oh, my god. What if I do want more than friendship with jack?
[ Sighs ]
Lauren: Wow. That is quite an admission.
Phyllis: I don’t know what to do with all these thoughts and these feelings, if anything.
Lauren: Okay, well, I think you need to take time to find out where these feelings are coming from. I mean, you just ended things with nick, and you’ve been spending a lot of time with jack, crying on those very comforting shoulders, so of course you would have all these complicated emotions.
Phyllis: Yeah, I don’t even know what to do with them. You know, I hate them.
Lauren: Can I just say one thing?
[ Sighs ] You and jack are in a really good place. I would hate to see either one of you hurt, so proceed with caution.
Ashley: Tell me what’s wrong. I know it’s not business because I read the quarterly report. Congratulations, by the way.
Jack: Thank you.
Ashley: So then it’s personal?
Jack: And private.
[ Chuckles ] That’s funny. You’re not back with sally, are you?
Jack: No, of course I’m not.
Ashley: [ Sighs ] Thank god. Sounds like it has to be somebody who’s problematic, though.
Jack: Nick and phyllis have decided to break things off, and it’s stirred up some emotions.
Ashley: No, no, no, no, no! Please don’t tell me you’re rekindling that romance.
Jack: Did I say that?
Ashley: You don’t have to say a thing. I can see it in your eyes, jack.
Jack: I’m sorting out how i feel.
Ashley: Okay, as you sort, could you remind yourself of the hell she’s put you through. I mean, really, every time she’s broken up with you. I’m not trying to be mean. I just can’t take it. I can’t take seeing you —
Jack: Thank you, sis. I appreciate your concern.
Ashley: I’m not done lecturing you, jackie.
Jack: No, I’m sure you’re not, but look what time it is, and I got to get home and pack some things for this trip.
Ashley: Okay. I’m just happy it’s a long flight. It’s gonna give me lots of time to knock some sense into you.
Jack: Don’t waste your energy on me. Abby has far bigger problems than I do right now.
Jack: I’ll see you later.
[ Huffs ] Oh, my sweetheart. You miss your mama? I’m gonna go to spain, honey. I’m gonna find your mommy and I’m gonna bring her back home. I promise.
Victor: Grief can certainly tear you up inside, can’t it? And you contemplate doing things you never thought you would.
Devon: Well, yeah, you think that finally find the person you’re gonna spend the rest of your life with, and they’re snatched away from you with no warning at all. Feels impossible to go on.
Victor: I remember how difficult it was for you after hilary passed.
Devon: Yeah, I do, too, but I’ll tell you one thing, it doesn’t compare to being left with a baby to take care of, like abby.
Victor: Let’s just hope that ashley finds her quickly and brings her home.
Devon: And I know that she’s doing what she feels like she needs to do right now by trying to bring her husband back home, but she has a child who needs her more than anything. And to not how this is gonna play out, I’m really worried for him.
Victor: This is all very upsetting. Let’s go.
Lily: I cannot believe that you did this. We’re supposed to be partners, and you went behind my back.
Billy: I thought that you would be relieved. Honestly, lily, I can see what this is doing to you, okay? I was trying to do the right thing.
Lily: Right, by going to victor.
Billy: What I proposed to him would take the pressure off of you and our company.
Lily: How? Because he — he agreed or he gave you his word that he’s gonna stop legal action?
Billy: He said that he was gonna consider it, and i honestly feel like he was taking it seriously.
Lily: Right. Oh, my god, yes, because you’re right, he’s so trustworthy.
Billy: Yeah, what else do you want me to do? Look, I’m hoping that he sees me humbled, with my face in the dirt, and it’s too tempting for him to resist.
Lily: Billy, even if he agrees and you resign, it doesn’t change anything. He might not come after me personally, but he will do anything he can to use the situation to his advantage. We are vulnerable to attack right now. Adam and victor, they want to dismantle us and scoop up the pieces for themselves. That has not changed. The only thing that has is that you have now left me on my own to fend off the vultures by myself.
Next week on
“the young and the restless”…
Billy: I’m sorry, are you two here looking for an apology?
Ashland: No, we’re actually here to make you an offer.
Amanda: The jury is ready to give their verdict in sutton’s trial.
Phyllis: So you’re flying solo?
Gloria: Of course not. Nobody wants to be alone on thanksgiving. Why do you ask? Oh, phyllis, are you alone today?
Ashley: If she’s in spain, i promise you I will find her and I will bring her home. <
