Sharon: [ Sighs ]
Sharon: Hello, phyllis. We are keeping up with our annual thanksgiving tradition of feeding the unhoused and the lonely, so I’m sorry about the mess.
Phyllis: Oh, no problem. You know, it’s an open house, that’s for sure. Could I get a coffee?
Sharon: Uh, well, you’ll have to help yourself. There’s pot ready, but there’s no special orders today.
Phyllis: Oh, no problem. So, you know, at the grand phoenix, we’re not starting our — you know, our food service until late, and the managers are taking care of it, so if you need an extra set of hands…
Sharon: Oh. Well, thank you. That’s a very lovely offer.
Phyllis: Well, coffee first.
Nick: Alright, I got some food and supplies here. I’m also gonna send over a couple of vans of seniors from new hope who don’t have any family to spend the holidays with.
Sharon: Oh, great. Well, they’re welcome to come here. No one should be alone today.
Nick: Happy thanksgiving.
Phyllis: Happy thanksgiving.
Nick: Uh, I know people are gonna be arriving soon, so we should probably get set up. In this box, there’s some water and drinks, and in that one, there’s some dinner rolls.
Sharon: Oh, great. Could you put them over there?
Nick: Yeah, I know where it goes. It’s not my first thanksgiving at crimson lights.
Sharon: You’re always so great about helping out on this day.
Nick: Hey, I’m fired up, and faith and christian and noah are on their way over to help, too.
Sharon: Christian’s interested in helping?
Nick: Yeah, he’s taking his role as official volunteer very seriously. I’m hoping it becomes a family tradition with him.
Sharon: Oh, great! You know what? I’m gonna find something interesting for him to do, something fun, ’cause I don’t want him to get bored. I want him to be entertained.
Phyllis: Guys, I got to go.
Sharon: Oh, I thought that you were staying for a while to help out.
Phyllis: Oh, no, I can’T. Something at work fell through the cracks, and only I can fix it. Happy thanksgiving.
Nick: Have a good day.
Phyllis: Billy, hey.
Billy: Hi. Happy thanksgiving.
Phyllis: Yeah, happy thanksgiving. See ya.
Billy: Yeah, you got big plans today?
Phyllis: Um, why are you curious?
Billy: I guess I’m not. I was just trying to be polite.
Phyllis: Oh, well, you don’t have to be polite. I don’t want to rub my exciting plans that I have for thanksgiving in your face, you know? Because I’m sure you’re gonna be spending the holiday alone, fixing that mess at chanccomm.
Billy: Yeah, hopefully I can fit a plate of turkey in between the damage control.
Phyllis: Good luck with that. I read that article on ashland. Wow. And the embarrassing retraction.
Billy: Yeah, you know, phyllis, it’s been a rough week, but all the chaos and drama are gonna have to take a back seat today.
Phyllis: Are they, really? Hmm.
Billy: Well, it’s thanksgiving, and this year, it’s all about lily and the kids.
Phyllis: Yet, um, they’re nowhere around.
Billy: Lily was gonna go to california to see mattie and charlie, but weather scuttled those plans. When I left them, they were mid-video call, and when I get back, I’m sure they’ll still be chatting.
Phyllis: I can only imagine how your article affected negotiations for the kids with ashland and victoria.
Billy: Yeah, it wasn’t stress-free, but everyone’s trying to be fair. They’re gonna spend half the day with her and spend half the day with us.
Phyllis: That’s very civilized, considering everything that went down.
Billy: None of this is the kids’ fault, and we’re all making sure that they’re not affected by it. And to be honest, they deserve as much love and family vibes as they can get on thanksgiving. Everyone does.
Phyllis: Right, everyone does.
Billy: Happy thanksgiving. When I get a migraine,
Phyllis: [ Exhales sharply ] Ohhh, great.
Gloria: Hello, phyllis. Isn’t it a heavenly day?
Phyllis: I guess it is.
Gloria: [ Chuckles ] Must be something in the air. I feel like I’m positively glowing.
Phyllis: Well, that could be the radioactive waves emanating from your ego.
Gloria: Oh, no, silly. It’s your spa, thank you very much. I am in between treatments, and I feel absolutely transformed, like a — like a golden goddess.
Phyllis: Well, I am very glad to hear that our estheticians have done you right.
Gloria: Oh, yes, oh, yes. I am so thankful for the massages and the facials i scheduled for today, and the fact that your spa is open on a holiday. And I mean, it’s — I feel badly for the masseuses and the facialists who have to work, but I will tip them generously because jcv is doing phenomenally well under my charge.
Phyllis: You should know that everybody’s getting paid extra because they’re working on a holiday. I’ve done that for them. And I’m letting them go early so they can spend thanksgiving with their family, so it’s all good. Are you spending thanksgiving with lauren and michael?
Gloria: Oh, afraid not. They want to spend the day with fen.
Phyllis: Oh. That should be fun. Um…so you’re flying solo?
Gloria: [ Chuckles ] Of course not. Nobody wants to be alone on thanksgiving. No, after my facial, I’ll go to kevin and chloe’s for dinner with their little angels. Why do you ask?
[ Gasps ] Oh, phyllis, are you alone today?
Phyllis: No! Uh, of course not. That’s ridiculous, I’m working.
Gloria: Oh, yeah, yeah. Sure, sure, sure. Whatever you want to call it. Well, one good thing, look on the bright side, you don’t have to fight anybody for the drumstick.
Phyllis: And your family is so lovely. So sweet that they flew in all this way to surprise you. I mean, because family is what we’re all about here at the grand phoenix.
[ Laughs ] What am I thankful for? Oh, uh… I guess special days like these. Thanks for coming. Hey, summer! Hey, baby. Um, it’s your mom just calling, you know. Um, I know it’s later in italy, but I just wanted to wish you a happy thanksgiving, you and kyle and harrison. Happy thanksgiving.
[ Sighs ] Well, yeah, I’m definitely gonna get out there soon, daniel. I miss you and lucy. I want to see you. I’m doing great. Yes! I’m doing great. I’ll talk to you soon, okay? I love you.
[ Clears throat ]
[ Sighs ]
[ Pounding at door ]
[ Gasps ]
[ Knock on door ] Ahh! Ahhhh!
Gloria: [ Laughs ]
Phyllis: Gloria, what are you doing here?
Gloria: Call me “golden glo.” And I am here to help you, so get dressed, let’s go, because you have places to be. On the outside, I looked fine. May have poked my nose where it didn’t belong. Room, overstepping as
Phyllis: What makes you think you can just barge in to my room, overstepping as usual, what, glo– golden glo?
Gloria: Golden glo, and, yes, I admit, at times in the past, i may have poked my nose where it didn’t belong. But not in this case.
Phyllis: Okay. What were you doing in the spa? Were you sniffing a bath salt?
Gloria: Oh, please! Don’t be rude.
Phyllis: No, I’m being direct. I’m not going anywhere with you.
Gloria: Oh, but you are, if you want to turn your thanksgiving around. So chop, chop.
Phyllis: Okay. I have plans.
Gloria: Oh, yeah, like what?
Phyllis: Okay, my plans are of no concern to you.
Gloria: Uh-huh, which means they don’t exist. All I see — oh, a well-worn remote, a lonely little glass of wine, and potato chips. Oh, and you’re not even watching anything cheery. I mean, true crime stories? That is hardly the way to usher in the holiday season.
Phyllis: Okay, if you don’t get out of my room right now, you’re gonna find yourself the victim of a true crime.
Gloria: [ Laughs ] Oh, enough with the idle threats and enough with the pity party for one. No, if you don’t get yourself dressed, maybe I’ll pick out a suitable outfit for you, and something a little different than your usual [Mumbles]
Phyllis: Uh, your power of persuasion has a lot to be desired. Where are you so adamant on taking me?
Gloria: I’m offering you a — a do-over of sorts. If a happy thanksgiving is what phyllis wants, then golden glo will make sure she gets it.
Phyllis: Okay, how could you possibly — hey! Gloria? Gloria? Gloria! Hey, I’m not calling you golden glo. I’m not doing that. Well, so we’re going here? Seriously? You wanted to take me someplace, I mean, I could’ve suggested hawaii or bali. But you took the coffeehouse. Wow. Think bigger, you know?
Sharon: Really could have used your help earlier, phyllis.
Phyllis: Well, I mean, sorry.
Sharon: “I forgot something at the hotel.” Did you really think that I was buying that excuse?
Phyllis: Yeah, I know, it was a lie. It was a lie. I’m here now. I’ll help you now. Sharon? Sharon?
[ Sighs ] Oh, wait a second. This is a dream. This is my dream. Oh! This is my dream, so people aren’t gonna do or say anything unless I want them to. Oh-oh! This is great. Sharon, I’m talking to you.
Sharon: Phyllis, I’m so glad you came back.
Phyllis: Really? Because you were a little irritated with me a few seconds ago.
Sharon: I don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re one of the people that I’m most grateful for this year.
Phyllis: Whoa, I mean, I know this is my dream, but I mean, this is unreal. There’s no way I’d believe this. Why are you grateful for me?
Sharon: Well, I haven’t forgotten your support and kindness that you gave me during my cancer treatments.
Phyllis: Oh. Well, I mean, of course. That was life or death, you know? And that was bigger than us and the issues we’ve had in the past.
Sharon: And all of the times that we’ve been warring over the years, you know, you always took all the responsibility for that when, really, I was half responsible. Actually, I was entirely responsible for all of our dust-ups.
Phyllis: Really? Do you — do you really believe that?
Sharon: Yes! Take yesterday for example, i was rude and out of line to probe you about your breakup with nick or your relationship with jack.
Phyllis: Wow. I mean, am I forcing you to say this in my dream, or do you really mean it?
Sharon: I’m just trying to be honest. Don’t you think it’s about time?
Phyllis: Yes, you know what? I do. I think it’s about time.
Sharon: So maybe we can get to a better place. Or not. But do take what I said and do what you will with it.
Phyllis: Well, thanks, sharon. I will.
Sharon: And in the meantime, I’m sure you have a million other better places to be. But do you think that you could spare a little time to help feed the hungry? It’s thanksgiving. It’s about giving and togetherness. Who knows, maybe you and I can heal a few old wounds in the meantime.
Phyllis: That would be great. I’ll help out, yeah. I’ll feed the hungry. I’ll do that.
[ Chuckles ] Hey, thanks for coming! The mashed potatoes are amazing. Green beans? Here you go.
[ Laughs ] Hey, come on in! There’s plenty of room.
[ Laughs ] Hey! Come on in, don’t be shy. You can’t all be full yet. Who wants seconds?
[ Applause ] Oh, so much appreciation for your friendly volunteer. I really do feel the love.
[ Applause ]
Gloria: Okay, next stop. All aboard! Choo-choo!
Phyllis: Buzz off, buzz off. I’m enjoying this. I’m having fun.
Gloria: Oh, too bad. We got to keep moving. The busiest travel day of the year. Boop-boop!
Phyllis: What am I doing here? Hey, I’m in the belly of the beast. Gloria! Gloria? Hey, let’s go back to crimson lights. Ahh!
Nikki: Ah, phyllis. We’ve been waiting for you. No one can deliver your mom’s homemade short ribs.
Phyllis: Uh, okay, I didn’t come here to make trouble. In fact, you know, it’s so funny ’cause I didn’t even come here of my own volition.
Victor: Really? Now, we don’t care how you get to the ranch.
Nikki: We’re just glad that you made it in time to carve the turkey.
Victor: I’m relinquishing my duty to carve the turkey, so you have the honor, okay?
Phyllis: Uh, what’s going on?
Nick: I’m so glad you’re finally here.
Phyllis: No, you’re not. I despise you guys, you despise me, and you’re being nice to me. This makes no sense. In fact, it’s creeping me out. I’m gonna go.
Nikki: Oh, no, no, no.
Victor: No, no, no, stay, stay, stay.
Nick: Please. Listen, phyllis, we’re not a couple anymore, but we’re summer’s parents and we’re friends. And I owe you a huge thank-you, and today is a perfect day to do that.
Phyllis: What are you thanking me for?
Nick: I finally took your advice.
Nikki: Your very wise advice.
Phyllis: Which was?
Nick: To stay out of the chaos of my family’s drama, and you were right. I mean, ever since I’ve done that, some amazing things have happened. Adam has finally left town. Victoria has forgiven me. We are close than ever. And dad has finally accepted me for who I am and the choices I’m making.
Victor: I am so proud of my boy. Wow.
Nick: I was wrong. I should’ve listened to you from the start.
Phyllis: I mean, I don’t — i don’t want to say “I told you so,” but…
Nikki: We are so grateful to you for putting up with our family for all these years and for always being the voice of reason when we stubbornly refuse to listen.
Nick: You okay?
Victor: Cat got your tongue?
Nikki: This is a first.
Phyllis: Uh… well, I mean, if you guys think I’m right, who am I to say that you’re wrong, so [Chuckles] Yeah, let’s carve the turkey.
Phyllis: You know, let’s get some wine — the good stuff. You know, the expensive stuff. Let’s have a party. Let’s celebrate, right? Together. And then I said, “well, that’s why they call it a deluxe suite.”
Nikki: Oh, no!
[ Laughter ]
Phyllis: This is the best thanksgiving I’ve ever spent with you all, and that’s not saying a lot because there have been some really bad ones. But it’s nice — it’s nice to have this peace amongst each other, right? I mean, I’m wondering why it took us so long to get here.
Nikki: Oh, we don’t need to get into that.
Phyllis: Probably not.
Nikki: Because I’m sure there were times in the past when we could’ve been less than pleased with you. For instance, all the times that you broke nicholas’ heart and you turned on victoria and me during the jt murder investigation.
Phyllis: Yeah, yeah. Well, we don’t have to go there.
Nikki: No, you are absolutely right. We don’t need to go down memory lane. We are just grateful for the guidance you gave nicholas. It saved our family. I mean, we are happy and finally united. We have only you and your sage wisdom to thank for that. I mean, once he stopped worrying about what was going on between us, we stopped meddling. So now everything is copacetic with the newmans.
Victor: So, here’s to phyllis.
Nick: To phyllis.
Nikki: To phyllis.
Phyllis: Three cheers for phyllis.
Hip, hip, hooray! Hip, hip, hooray! Hip, hip, hooray!
Traci: Oh, jack, we’re just so happy for you. I mean, come on, you’ve been lonely for a while now.
Ashley: It’s true, and no offense, but, I mean, come on. Your love life has taken some hard lefts lately.
Jack: I am aware.
Traci: But look at you, you found love again. But who would’ve thought it would be with her?
Jack: No one’s more surprised than I am. I’ve just never been happier.
Ashley: You know, sometimes the past can become the present. And when you reunite with a former lover, it can be so magical.
Jack: It has been, and it will continue to be.
[Laughter] Is spontaneous and exciting and unpredictable.
Ashley: She is all those things and more, isn’t she? But you know what? I agree with you.
[Crashing] Is worth it.
Jack: She definitely is.
Phyllis: Yeah, I am. But if you guys were talking about me… wait a second. We’re not back together, jack. And your sisters wouldn’t be that happy about it.
Jack: I realize [Horn honks] Has never been your favorite, but thank you for your kindness and your generosity. I really think it’s gonna work this time.
Traci: Oh, jack, we want that for you.
Ashley: Speaking of which, where is she?
Jack: Well, I suppose she’s a little late, but she should be here soon. Oh, there she is. Gloria.
Gloria: Happy happy thanksgiving!
Jack: You made it.
Traci: Hello, gloria. You look gorgeous.
Gloria: Thank you. So do you.
Traci: [ Chuckles ] Hi. So you’re the scientist here.
“The young and the restless”
Ashley: We are so thrilled that this incredible woman has put a smile back on your handsome face, jackie.
Traci: And anyone who makes our brother happy makes us happy.
Jack: Gloria deserves all the credit. She has given me a whole new appreciation for life. I am just grateful that she was willing to take me back.
Gloria: Oh, believe me, jack, it has been my pleasure. Um, if you’ll excuse me for just one minute.
Phyllis: Look at you. Some fairy godmother you turned out to be.
Gloria: Oh, darling, I am much too young to be any kind of mother to you.
Phyllis: Golden glo, wow. Look at that. More like golden ghoul.
Gloria: Ooh, name-calling now. Listen, it’s not my fault that jack is with me. This is your subconscious, which can only mean one thing.
Phyllis: I can’t wait to hear this.
Gloria: You’re intimidated by me because deep down, you think, you know I’m the one who holds the keys to jack’s heart.
Phyllis: That’s crazy.
Gloria: [ Laughs ] Just like the way you sound. We are inside your head, and i am so relieved I don’t have to live here full-time.
Phyllis: You know, this whole dream, everything, it’s like a mash-up of irrational incidents.
Phyllis: It’s like the abbotts having thanksgiving dinner at society instead of their home, and then jack being in love with you — seriously? — And his sisters supporting it, as if.
Gloria: Guess what — it seems to be happening right before your eyes.
Phyllis: Yeah, well, I’m putting a stop to that. Okay, hi, all. I think there’s been a mistake. There’s been a mistake, but I am here. When you’re talking about the great love of jack’s life returning, you’re clearly talking about me and not gloria. I’ll just sit right there.
Ashley: There’s no room at this table for you.
Phyllis: Traci, you want me here, right? You’re the good one. You’re the kind one.
Traci: Oh, wish I could offer you a seat, but it’s really not my place.
Jack: Maybe we could find room for her. It is thanksgiving.
Ashley: That’s exactly why she shouldn’t be here. Have you forgotten how many times this woman has broken your heart?
Traci: You know, she did cheat on you with your very own brother, and not very long ago.
Phyllis: But that was a mistake. We all make mistakes, right? I mean, come on. You’d rather have gloria with jack than me? Come on.
Ashley: Oh, yes.
Traci: I’d have to agree.
Phyllis: I don’t know what’s happening. My dream was going so well, and now everything changed.
Traci: Well, phyllis, everything does change. You know, life goes on whether you like it or not. You’re either driving the train or you’re a passenger on your own journey.
Ashley: I am so excited about this meal. Isn’t it fun to break with family tradition once in a while? And I got a peek at the dressing and the cranberry sauce. It looks so delicious!
Jack: I’m gonna dig right in once gloria gets back. Listen, while she’s gone, I have a question to ask. I am considering asking her to come back to jabot. What do you think?
Ashley: [ Gasps ] I love that.
Traci: Oh, she always had a very good business sense.
Phyllis: She does not. She’s a fraud, she’s a liar, and she steals. She’s a grifter.
Jack: Wine, anyone?
Ashley: Oh, it’s a day of celebration.
Traci: Yes, please.
Jack: Here we are.
Ashley: [ Laughs ]
Billy: Phyllis, hi.
Phyllis: Hi. I thought you were going home to lily. What are you doing here?
Billy: I’m not sure. It’s your dream.
Phyllis: Oh, yeah, you’re probably here to annoy me.
Billy: Yeah, I can do that.
Phyllis: It’s working.
Billy: Look, now that you are here and I am here, maybe this is a good time to apologize for the way I screwed things up between you and jack.
Phyllis: We don’t have to talk about that.
Billy: [ Chuckles ] I know it’s one of the many reasons that you don’t like me. But the truth is, we’re not all that different. And we do good things when we work together. Like when we exposed sally and tara locke.
Phyllis: Yeah, that was good. It was good. We work together well when our interests dovetail. Just we’re not gonna rehash anything. We wouldn’t want to hurt jack like that.
Billy: No, not my favorite thing to discuss either.
Phyllis: You know, it’s so weird. It was all going so well, this dream, until I saw the abbotts. And then it just all fell apart. I don’t know why.
Billy: Maybe it’s your guilt busting through your subconscious.
Phyllis: I don’t feel guilty.
Billy: Yet you exiled yourself from thanksgiving because you think you deserve to be alone.
Phyllis: No, I mean, I was working.
Billy: And not spending time with summer and daniel? Come on, phyllis. I know how much your kids matter to you.
Phyllis: My kids live far away now.
Billy: And they’re doing great, which is hard for you because you are a fighter, and fighting for your kids is second nature. Do you mind if I make an observation? I know you miss nick and everything you had. But it’s obvious that you’re missing jack. That’s why you’re here.
Phyllis: [ Gasps ] Really? My head isn’t on straight. Jack is in spain with ashley.
Billy: Jack is in spain fighting for abby because, like you, when it comes to family, he’s all in. And when it comes to love, he’s relentless. And that includes you.
Phyllis: Jack is amazing.
Billy: And you’re not?
Phyllis: I didn’t say that.
Billy: Phyllis, you deserve love. Whether you admit it or not.
Phyllis: [ Crying ]
Phyllis: You know, billy, you’re hardly the — the expert on relationships. You couldn’t wait to toss me aside when I slept with nick.
Billy: I think that all worked out the way it was meant to be. I’m with lily now, and we fit. And maybe things with us had to blow up. With victoria, too, maybe. Because here I am, and it’s where I belong. And I have to say, I think jack brings out the best in you.
Phyllis: You do?
Billy: Yeah. Yeah, you’re more honest with him. You’re less defensive. You don’t lash out as much. And I think you trust his advice because you don’t question his agenda. And I think you like who you are with him. That is, until the guilt gets in there and ruins things.
Phyllis: The guilt? Okay, so if I chose to get jack back, I mean, what would I do? I mean, how would I go about this?
Phyllis: Yeah, if. I mean, I don’t know what to do. I mean, I don’t want to ruin things. I don’t want to blow things up.
Billy: If I were you, i would —
Gloria: Time’s up.
Phyllis: Oh! No! No, finish what you were saying, please, please. What are you doing here? I’m in the middle of a conversation.
Gloria: Sleeping beauty has to get back to the castle.
Phyllis: Please tell me what you were gonna say. Please. Don’t you have a meal to attend with the abbotts?
Gloria: [ Clears throat ]
Gloria: Ah-ah-ah-ah. I’m not going back inside, and neither are you, phyllis. Time to go.
Gloria: [ Exhales sharply ] Well…
Phyllis: We have to go back to society. I have to talk to billy.
Gloria: [ Groans ] No can do.
Phyllis: I need to talk to billy. He was about to give me the answers, what I should do next with my life.
Gloria: [ Laughs ] Billy? You choose very odd confidants.
Phyllis: Yes, I do, don’t I? Because I chose you.
Gloria: But I am the best choice you’ve made so far, because I will give you the truth because I have a deep well of experience and wisdom to draw upon.
Phyllis: No, I chose you because I must hate myself. I must love torture.
Gloria: Now, why do you think billy has the answers you’re looking for?
Phyllis: Because I think that billy and I are similar. And I think we’re both reckless and wild and…and he’s figured it out and I haven’T. And he’s figured out how he can still be a screw-up but be with the person he loves.
Gloria: Aww. I grant you, that is a talent.
Phyllis: Please, can we go back, gloria? Please? Please? Please, he was about to give met he secret to my happiness. Please.
[ Knock on door ]
[ Exhales sharply ] Gloria. Gloria, what fresh hell is this? And — oh! Hey! Hey, thomas. I didn’t order anything.
Thomas: Well, somebody did. Dinner with all the trimmings.
Phyllis: Alright. Bring it in. I’m not one to push away food.
[ Laughs ] Hey, um, do you happen to know who did this?
Thomas: Sorry, I do not.
