Young & The Restless Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Connor: I can’t believe it! Everything’s exactly the same as the last time I saw it.
Chelsea: It’s good to be back, isn’t it?
Connor: It’s the best.
Adam: Well, you have two homes. You can stay here sometimes with your mom and the rest of the time at the ranch with me.
Connor: Does that mean we’ll get a tree for here, too?
Chelsea: You know, I hadn’t really thought about it yet.
Connor: It’s not christmas without a tree. We have to.
Adam: Well, your granddad, he always has a giant one. He always does.
Connor: This is going to be the coolest christmas ever. Not because of the trees and presents, but because mom is finally at home again.
Chelsea: Seeing you is the best part. You are the greatest gift. Oh! [ Laughs ]
Adam: Yeah, is it as bouncy as you remember?
Connor: Yeah. You know what else I remember? Pizza and movie nights. First one, I chose the movie, but dad burned dinner so we had to order out for pizza.
Chelsea: Yes, and we all fell asleep before the movie ended.
Adam: [ Laughs ] That was — it was — it was so much fun.
Connor: I’ll never forget that. We were all together. We were a real family. It was the best, wasn’t it?
Sally: [ Sighs ]
Chloe: Sally? What the hell are you doing?
Noah: Alright, I know we are a week away from christmas, but why should that stop me from giving you an early gift?
Mariah: Ooh, what did you get me?
Noah: Actually, I was talking to tessa. Sorry, you’ll have to wait just like everyone else.
Mariah: Oh, please, please let it be another scented candle because you can’t think of anything else.
Tessa: [ Chuckles ]
Noah: You know, a lot of thought went into those, actually. Anyways, I’ve been working on the album cover using the image we all liked best, and voil.
Tessa: Oh! This is so exciting. Oh, wow.
Noah: I superimposed your smile over a cityscape.
Mariah: That’s beautiful. You’re beautiful.
Noah: And brilliant.
Mariah: Why? Because she hired you to take her photo for the album?
Tessa: Yeah, I mean, there’s no denying she has good taste. We’ll leave it at that.
Tessa: [ Chuckles ]
Noah: So what do you think?
Tessa: I love it.
Mariah: Yeah, there’s just this area over — over here that I think could use a little bit of work. It’s the blue, it kind of seems oversaturated.
Noah: That’s my favorite part. You don’t like it?
Mariah: Well, what if we tried a different color?
Noah: Different color, really?
Mariah: Well, I know that you are the artistic genius here, but it doesn’t hurt to have another set of eyes.
Noah: Depends on the eyes.
Mariah: Noah, I love you and I love your work. It’s just if you keep the picture as-is, it sort of loses its familiarity. You know, and it’s — honestly, it’s a little — little scary. And, uh, you know, that’s just not tessa and her music.
Noah: Well, when did you get so opinionated? Tess, do you mind telling your manager that I know what I’m doing?
Mariah: Excuse me. Would you mind telling your photographer — my brother — that it’s always valuable to have other people’s opinions, especially the opinions of somebody who, I don’t know, is in a relationship with the singer.
Noah: What do you think, tess?
Tessa: Uh…um, I — I — uh, I’m not sure, you know? I-I don’t — I could see that it needs work, but I’m sure that we will find something that we are all gonna be happy with.
Noah: Oh, that was very diplomatic of you. Let’s get real here. Are you siding with her or with me? Not only do centrum multigummies
Sally: I was just gonna have a bite and grab something hot to drink. Join me.
Chloe: Yeah, I’ve been watching you for the last few minutes, all bundled up like maybe you didn’t want someone to recognize you, and it looks a little weird. And I have learned to be suspicious of weird. So who are you hiding from?
Sally: Well, there is a simple explanation. I was woefully unprepared for my first wisconsin winter last year — and mistake that I swore I wouldn’t repeat.
Chloe: And you’re rocking a pair of sunglasses because you didn’t want to go snow-blind? And you’re wearing this wig because, what, you want to know if blondes really do have more fun? You know, I saw billy and lily leaving when I was coming in, and then I notice you over here bundled up like mrs. Claus in spite of the fact that you’re in a toasty restaurant, and now you are taking your layers off even though I know you’ve been in here for a while. And you were smiling at your phone like the cat who caught the canary.
Sally: We have been generating a lot of buzz on social media. People are loving our videos.
Chloe: Listen. I have got all the time in the world, and I’m not going anywhere until I get the truth.
Sally: Fine. Just to get you off my back.
Adam: You are gonna have so many pizza and movie nights now that your mom’s home.
Adam: Yeah. Pepperoni, sausage, anime, action — you name it.
Connor: And I get to stay up as late as I want?
Chelsea: [ Laughs ] Don’t push it. You still have a bedtime, mister. Why don’t you run upstairs and see if everything looks the way you left it, hmm?
Connor: Maybe my old soccer ball’s up there. I’ll bet it’s flat by now.
Adam: Well, I’ll take it to the ranch. I’ll pump it up for you.
Chelsea: [ Chuckles ] Oh, the energy that kid has amazes me.
[ Sighs ] But it’s nice to see him so happy.
Adam: Well, like I said earlier, he, um — he missed you.
Chelsea: You handled that well. Managing his expectations about the three of us.
Adam: Well, the most important thing is he knows that both of us love him and that’ll never change, no matter what.
Chelsea: I completely agree. It’s strange being back here.
Adam: Part of the reason i moved to the ranch. Just too many memories.
Chelsea: And which memories were the hardest to handle? What we had…or what it turned into?
Tessa: No, mnh-mnh. No! I am not doing it. I’m not gonna choose sides.
Noah: I’m sorry, I’m sorry. It was cruel. I shouldn’t have put you in that position. I was just messing with you guys.
Mariah: What? That — that was a joke? The big eyeball with the blue splotches? Are you — are you kidding me?
Noah: Yeah, I just added in those elements ’cause I knew one or both of you would hate it, and I wanted to see your reaction.
Tessa: [ Laughs ] Noah! That’s so wrong.
Noah: I had to see how passionate you were about the work.
Tessa: [ Laughs ]
Mariah: Unforgivable. Do you think da vinci would do that or ansel adams?
Noah: Oh, you think I’m that good, huh?
Mariah: Oh, that’s very funny.
Noah: [ Chuckles ]
Tessa: You know what? It was actually was funny. It was nice to see you so invested. You were about to go to war with a world-famous artist just to protect my image.
Mariah: Anytime you need me to take this guy down a notch, I’m your gal.
Noah: Oh, I’d like to see you try.
Mariah: Oh, anytime, anywhere, buddy.
[ Laughs ]
Faith: Is this a private debate or can anyone join in?
Mariah: Oh, faith, thank goodness.
Noah: We are having creative differences.
Tessa: And you’ll stay out of it if you know what’s good for you.
Noah: You must be moses.
Faith: Moses, this is my brother noah.
Noah: It’s nice to meet you.
Moses: You too. Faith has shown me some of your work.
Noah: Ah, what’d you think?
Moses: Oh, I loved it. Pretty cool stuff.
Mariah: Made by somebody so incredibly uncool, it’s a mystery.
Noah: Oh, that’s very funny. I’ll get back to you. So what are you guys up to?
Moses: Oh, just hanging out.
Noah: You must be a saint. Last time I hung out with faith, she hogged all the popcorn at the movies, ate all of my fries at lunch —
Faith: Wait, never happened.
Noah: Will you two back me up on this?
Tessa: I do recall a couple incidents of brownie thievery.
Faith: I did not.
Tessa: Mm, well, it was at this very table, hmm? Remember? We ordered two brownies, fresh from the oven — perfect, fudgy, delicious. I go up to order drinks, I come back, and one is gone and the other has a bite taken out of it.
Faith: Oh. Yeah, maybe that did happen.
Noah: The truth.
Faith: But I was hungry and it was so warm and so good.
Tessa: Well, I swore that very day that I would never leave a snack unattended with faith around.
Moses: I had no idea.
Faith: I am not that bad, really.
Mariah: Hey, faith gives as much as she gets. She always shares her tips with the baristas when she works here. She’s an amazing sister, and I’m very lucky.
Tessa: Well, your little sister is a snack destroyer.
[ Laughter ]
Faith: You two are killing me. Mariah, you are so protective. And, tessa, you are going for the jugular. You two are like the super-sweet and corny parents that you always see in the sitcoms.
Noah: You know, in the sitcom version of this, mariah, the sweet mom, would be going on and on about how thoughtful and generous faith is, all the while she’d be right behind you stealing fries from your plate till it’s empty.
Faith: And tessa, the tough mom, is watching the whole thing, trying to call mariah’s attention to the theft going on right under her nose, but she just can’t interrupt the heartwarming parental lecture.
Noah: Yeah, you guys would be the perfect pair of parents — the businesswoman who only sees the good and the singer who sees everything. You’d be a total pushover.
Tessa: And tessa would like to go back to talking about her album cover.
Moses: Oh, devon’s been playing your music at the house.
Tessa: Okay, what — what do you think?
Moses: I love it.
Faith: Yeah, he really does. I’ve heard him singing a couple of your songs when he thinks no one’s listening.
Moses: Oh, wow, all the secrets are coming out.
Faith: Pretty cool that you’ve gone back to devon’s label for your new album.
Moses: Yeah, and it’s been great working there, having my internship, because I get to help out on it.
Tessa: Well, I feel incredibly lucky to have devon in my corner. He’s been so supportive and he’s given me so much freedom on this project. He knows where I’ve been, where I’m trying to go, and — and i honestly don’t know where i would be without him.
Mariah: Hey, is it premature to give faith and moses a look at what you’re doing?
Noah: Show them the cover art?
Tessa: Uh, I mean, yeah. As long as we swear them to secrecy.
Moses: Oh, I promise I won’t tell a soul.
Tessa: Oh, you’re leaving?
Mariah: Yeah, I got some reports to file back at jabot.
Tessa: Oh, right now?
Mariah: Yeah, but I’ll see you at home. Okay, see you, everybody.
Noah: See ya.
Noah: Anyways, I took the original photo, added some layers, some color, wanted to restructure a little bit. Tessa?
Tessa: Huh? Oh, sorry, what’d I miss?
Noah: I’m just showing our captive audience how I’m doing my part to catapult your album to the top of the charts.
Tessa: Oh, that.
Moses: Wow, this is some really next-level stuff.
Faith: Isn’t it? Our very own star.
Noah: Wait, are you talking about me or her?
Tessa: Uh, me, obviously.
[ Laughter ]
Adam: Being here with you is stirring up all the memories. When things were great. When they weren’T.
Chelsea: I feel the same way. I just keep playing it over in my mind, wondering where it all went wrong. I mean, what — what we could’ve done differently.
Adam: Well, it wasn’t any one thing. And there’s no going back, chelsea.
Chelsea: We loved each other, adam. So much. There was so much good. There was so much great, actually. I mean, look at our son.
Adam: He has both his parents in the same town again and making him feel secure, that is the most important thing, and we’re doing that.
Chelsea: We are.
Adam: Well, I should get back to the office and let you get settled in.
Chelsea: How’s it working out with chloe? And sally?
Sally: Alright, you found me out. I was spying on billy.
Chloe: Sally, what were you thinking? Why would you do that?
Sally: Well, because, as you know, adam and billy are in a battle royale, and if billy decides to retaliate on newman media, everything that you and I have accomplished could go up in flames.
Chloe: Oh. So you were going undercover to save the fashion division.
Chloe: If you want to do something for us, stick to designing. Do something creative. Network.
Sally: Okay, I tried talking to billy, but he wouldn’t tell me what’s going on.
Chloe: You work for the enemy, sally. I mean, what, did you think that you could connect with him in some meaningful way? That he would be so moved by your interest that he would just have to confess?
Sally: Okay, well, I spoke to him with real empathy, something that nobody else is showing him right now, and trust me, he responded.
Chloe: And? What’d he say? Did he bare his soul?
Sally: No. But it was worth a try. But I did walk away from our little run-in even more worried about what billy is capable of, so i decided to take an indirect approach and just follow him around and see what he’s planning.
Chloe: Okay, you don’t realize what you’re getting yourself mixed up in.
Sally: I know billy and adam hate each other. Adam is still furious with billy about that hit piece that he published, and billy will never forgive adam for the death of your daughter. Even though adam has changed.
Chloe: Do you even hear yourself?
Sally: What are you talking about?
Chloe: You said that you weren’t interested in adam. It was strictly business. Nothing personal, and now he’s got you running around, playing harriet the spy.
Sally: [ Sighs ]
Chloe: He’s pulling at your strings. You’re just like his little puppet.
Sally: It’s not like that.
Chloe: It’s exactly like that. Adam is using you. Some people have joint pain,
Noah: And I’m sure I’ll make some more adjustments, play with some new elements, add some new colors maybe.
Faith: I can’t wait to see what the cover looks like when it’s finished.
Moses: Yeah, it’s pretty cool how you and tessa are working together on this. It’s like you guys have a whole vision for the album.
Noah: Yeah, well, tessa’s music blows me away.
Tessa: Well, I love how noah’s photographs always capture things that most people wouldn’t notice.
Noah: It was an easy assignment. All I had to do was capture the feelings I get when I listen to your songs.
Tessa: [ Chuckles ]
Faith: Let’s go grab a table in the no-work zone. I’ll leave you two artistes to get back to creating your masterpiece.
Moses: Well, I can’t wait to see the final product.
Noah: See ya, man.
Tessa: Alright, where were we?
Noah: You know, I couldn’t help but notice how mariah took off. It was kind of like she couldn’t get out of here fast enough. I really hope I didn’t upset her with my lame attempt at a joke.
Tessa: Oh, no, I don’t think it was that. I think she just has, um… a lot going on right now.
Noah: So do you. You okay?
Tessa: Yeah, of course. Why wouldn’t I be? I have so much to be grateful for.
Noah: You have a lot to be proud of. You worked really hard and you put your heart and soul into your music and you made something really beautiful. It inspired me. I think the album cover should reflect that. Celebrate it. It’s something that should be celebrated.
Mariah: [ Sighs ]
Louise: Oh, hi.
Mariah: Hi, louise. Uh, I was just in the neighborhood and I wanted to stop by and see abby.
Louise: Oh, I’m sorry, abby and chance aren’t home right now.
Mariah: Oh. Yeah, I probably should have called before I just came by. What about dominic? Is he here? I haven’t seen him in a while.
Louise: He’s out with his parents.
Mariah: Yeah, yeah, of course. Uh…
Louise: I will let them know that you dropped by.
Mariah: No, no, it’s fine, it’s fine. It’s not a big deal. I’ll just catch up with them later. Thanks.
Louise: Yeah. Have a good day.
Mariah: Yeah, you too.
Sally: Adam is not using me. He doesn’t even know that I’m the one that’s been following billy. I’ve been sending him videos and photos anonymously.
Chloe: And you don’t think that he knows that you’re the one who’s behind all of this?
Sally: It was my idea.
Chloe: Are you sure about that? Are you sure you didn’t have any discussion with adam about the threat that billy poses? Or about maybe spying on him? You know what adam is capable of and how manipulative he can be. But you think that you’re special. You think that you can get close with him without getting burned, that you’re different.
Sally: I know what I’m doing.
Chloe: You’re trying to impress him. Show him how far you can go. And you are just playing right into his hands, and all this talk about him wanting to be a better man and better father, blah, blah, blah.
Sally: He is.
Chloe: Look at what he just did to billy. Adam and victor, they took away his job, and that wasn’t enough. He has to knock him while he’s down.
Sally: Billy brought this whole thing on himself by publishing that story about locke. It’s because of him that chanccomm nearly got sued out of existence. That is why billy had to walk away. But he doesn’t want to take responsibility for that, so he’s blaming adam. And now billy is spiraling out of control, he’s plotting some sort of revenge, and he’s targeting adam and us. The threat is real.
Chloe: You are right in the middle of something potentially dangerous, and adam is egging you on.
Sally: He tried to talk me out of it.
Chloe: Well, apparently not hard enough. This is what I have been warning you about time and time again. People get close and they get pulled in to adam’s orbit, and they end up getting hurt. Badly.
Sally: You mean chelsea. That’s what this whole thing is really about, why you’re so upset.
Chloe: I could be talking about a number of people. And what happened to chelsea should serve as a lesson and a warning, and by the way, she’s back in genoa city. So you have to make the decision — are you done playing these games with adam or are you gonna be part of our team?
Adam: If you want to know how chloe’s doing, ask her. I gave her total autonomy over the division. But I have no complaints.
Chelsea: I mean, you haven’t been completely hands off. You flew sally to tuscany for victoria’s wedding.
Adam: Because she made that dress on spec with newman media money. I was already going there, so i just gave her a lift. And it turned out to be a good thing because it gave a real boost to the platform.
Chelsea: That’s great.
Adam: Chloe and sally make a pretty good team. I know that chloe has her heart set on you joining them.
Chelsea: I need to discuss the details with her, and I have to meet sally in person.
Adam: Why, are you afraid you’re not gonna get along?
Chelsea: It’s a possibility. We may have different sensibilities. We may work differently. Those little details can be deal-breakers.
Adam: Okay, just take things one step at a time. There’s no rush, no pressure.
Chelsea: Thank you.
Adam: Just focus on what’s important.
Adam: Exactly. Well, I’m gonna go say goodbye to him, and then I should get back to work.
[ Sighs ]
Trelegy for copd.
“The young and the restless”
Adam: Yeah, don’t bother knocking. Just come on in.
Chloe: I decided we all need to meet.
Adam: Does this have anything to do with the fact that chelsea is back?
Chloe: Good guess. I’ve seen her, and I’ve shared the good news with sally. Chelsea looks fantastic. Mind-blowing.
Adam: Mm-hmm. She really does. It’s good to see her so happy again.
Chloe: She’s in a good place, so I want to get her up to speed and working here with us where she belongs.
Adam: Yeah, I know it’s always been your plan, your hope to have you and chelsea working together again.
Chloe: It’s the only reason why I accepted your job offer to run the fashion division in the first place. For her to have a safe place to land. This is something that you and i both wanted. Not only because it’s the right thing to do, which it is, but because she’s also a hell of a designer.
Adam: Yeah, just after speaking with her, I’m just not sure if she wants this as much as we want her to want it.
Chloe: What are you saying?
Adam: I’m saying if chelsea can’t commit to this, we have to be ready to move forward without her.
Moses: It’s been fun, but i have to get going before it gets too late.
Faith: Wait, where are you going?
Moses: Oh, just — just running a few errands.
Faith: I’ll come with you.
Moses: No, I — I don’t want to break up the party. You and noah are hanging out.
Faith: I can do that anytime.
Moses: No, it’s fine. I’ll be good on my own. I just have to get some christmas gifts.
Faith: I love buying gifts.
Noah: He’s shopping for you, genius.
Faith: Oops. Okay, yeah, I’ll sit this one out. But call me later.
Moses: Yeah, of course. Nice meeting you, man.
Noah: You too.
Faith: Good luck! Thank you.
Noah: For what?
Faith: For not taking moses aside and giving him some kind of big brother talk or staring him down or asking him a million embarrassing questions.
Noah: I was fighting my protective instincts. Come on, ease my mind. Tell me I have nothing to worry about.
Faith: He’s respectful. He’s kind. He’s smart. And if you really need to know, he is the easiest and happiest part of my day. And my days are already pretty good to begin with lately.
Noah: Well, I’m glad to hear it. And I promise I’ll try not to embarrass you too much.
Faith: That’s all that I’ll get from you.
Noah: I’m just a little gun-shy lately. Maybe I’m projecting. Why are you looking at me like that?
Faith: I’m wondering if I can ask you something. And before you answer, know that I promise I will not tell anyone what you say, so you can be honest with me.
Noah: Yeah, sure.
Faith: Do you still have feelings for tessa?
[ Door opens ]
Tessa: Hey. Hey, so the work you had didn’t take too long?
Mariah: Uh, I didn’t actually go to jabot.
Mariah: [ Sighs ] Yeah, I just, uh, had to get out of there.
Tessa: Because of everything faith said about us being parents?
Mariah: She was just joking around. And I can’t expect everybody to have baby-free conversations just because of me. You know, she doesn’t even know that we were talking about being parents.
Tessa: You know you can talk to me about anything, right? I’m not gonna be upset.
Mariah: I just can’t stop thinking about what it would be like if we were parents. How incredible we could be. Maybe it’s another refill at your favorite diner… understa but chelsea’s been dragging
Chloe: No question. Chelsea is definitely joining the fashion platform.
Adam: And I hope that that happens, for all our sakes. But chelsea’s been dragging her feet all this time and she hasn’t committed to this, so i just want you to be prepared if she doesn’t take the job.
Chloe: Chelsea is understandably cautious about leaping back into life in genoa city. She needs to have certain guarantees about the situation that she’s going to be walking into. No unwelcome surprises, and i think that’s a good thing and i imagine you would, too. That you want to have the best for her and set her up for success.
Adam: Of course, of course i do. I’m hoping that this will be a great thing for her.
Chloe: Well, I’m glad to hear you say that because chelsea just wants to know that she is coming to work in a positive and supportive environment and that people that are working here won’t be distracted by personal baggage and pointless vendettas.
Adam: Point taken.
Chloe: And chelsea wants to meet sally face-to-face soon.
Sally: Yeah, looking forward to it. I have no doubt that you, me, and chelsea will be a genius collaboration.
Chloe: Great. Well, then if we’re all on the same page, I’m gonna get back to work.
Adam: Mm. Sally, if you have a minute, something I’d like to go over with you.
Sally: I will catch up with you later. Why do I feel like I’m being called to the principal’s office? Am I in some kind of trouble?
Noah: Well, someone’s been reading too much young adult fiction. Everywhere you look, you’re trying to find a love story. Why would you think that I still have feelings for tessa?
Faith: Because I have eyes.
Noah: [ Scoffs ] Look, tessa and mariah are madly in love with each other, and she and I broke up a long time ago.
Faith: I know all of that, but I also know you, even though you’ve been overseas and you’re a wunderkind in the art world.
Noah: “Wunderkind”? That’s a big word for you.
Faith: I know more than you think. And I saw the way you were looking at tessa when you were talking.
Noah: Faith, you’re imagining things.
Faith: I caught a vibe.
Noah: Oh, yeah, and what vibe would that be?
Faith: Like you were thinking, “what if?” And this isn’t the first time that I’ve noticed it.
Noah: [ Sighs ] Nothing could be further from the truth.
Mariah: I stopped by abby’s to see the baby, but nobody was there. It was just the nanny.
Mariah: And I just felt so stupid. Standing there in the doorway like a stranger wanting to see somebody else’s baby.
Tessa: Well, you’re an integral part of that child’s life. You always will be.
Mariah: I know. And that’s everybody keeps saying to me. You know, “you’re always gonna have a special bond with him and the nickname you gave him will just be between the two of you.” But he’s not bowie. He’s dominic. He’s abby and chance’s son. Even though I carried him and i brought him into the world. And believe me, I — I never thought that I would be the type of person that was thinking about having kids or wanting kids. I mean, I didn’t think I had a maternal bone in my body. Sometimes I don’t even recognize who I am now. But if you told me right now that you were ready to start having a family, I mean, it would be like my birthday and christmas and every holiday and best day of my life rolled into one. But this is not who I was when we met at all.
Tessa: Well, there’s nothing wrong with that. We’ve both changed.
Mariah: I know, but you’re in a totally different place with this than I am, and I accept that. I — I really, really do. So let’s just talk about something else for once, please. Like, you know, what are we gonna get for dinner?
[ Laughs ]
Tessa: Mariah, that’s not fair. You can’t just say all of that and not give me a chance to respond.
Most of your immune system
lives right in your gut.
Faith: I may be young, but i have seen more breakups and divorces than I care to count.
Noah: That you have.
Faith: I know things.
Noah: Yeah, too many things. But I promise you, tessa and i are just friends.
Faith: Sometimes when people break up, they aren’t totally over each other.
Noah: There are no residual feelings between me and her. We get along, we’re both creatives. That’s why we can still work together.
Faith: So you don’t look like a lovesick puppy every time you see her?
Noah: No. No. Oh, no, that’s just my “recently heartbroken by a woman in london” look.
Noah: Yeah. Look, I’m glad tessa and I can still get along. It’s restored my faith in humanity.
Faith: Yeah, but —
Noah: But nothing. I’m not interested in tessa in the way that you mean. So find someone else to worry about, okay?
Noah: So, now that I know this is a meeting of the concerned siblings club, why don’t you tell me more about you and moses?
Faith: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, yeah, nice try.
Noah: Well, it was worth a shot.
Faith: [ Chuckles ]
Tessa: Thank you for being so honest. I don’t want you to feel like you have to hide anything from me — ever.
Mariah: But I’m going through something that you’re just not right now.
Tessa: But whatever you’re feeling, I feel it. We’re connected. If you hurt, I hurt. And I may not have gone through everything that you’ve gone through lately and I may not be, um…
Mariah: An unholy mess?
Tessa: But you’re my beautiful unholy mess. I may not be as certain about the idea of having a baby, and i may not be ready to commit to it quite yet, but I am willing to talk more about it.
Mariah: [ Chuckles ]
Chloe: Okay, so I know you just got home and here I am pounding on your door, but I’m only here because I need an answer from you and I need that answer to be yes. I’m not trying to put any undue pressure on you, but please, please, come work with me at newman fashion.
Chelsea: You’re impossible. I told you I need time to think about it.
Chloe: I’ve given you months. I’ve done all the heavy lifting. I got the fashion platform off the ground. I’ve been working with adam, for god’s sakes. This is what it was all about, so you and I could work with each other again. What else do you need to know? We can get started. Right this second.
Chelsea: I don’t want to disappoint you.
Chloe: Okay, then don’T.
Chelsea: But I don’t feel like that’s the best move for me.
Chloe: [ Scoffs ] I have been saving this spot for you by my side. Why don’t you want to do it?
Chelsea: Chloe, maybe being away gave me time to think — you know, time to think about what I did and what I had become. And now that I’m back, I’m starting to realize I’m disconnected to everyone and everything in this town except connor. So it’s forcing me to realize maybe I don’t belong in genoa city anymore.
Adam: No, you’re not in any kind of trouble. I, um, just had something that i wanted to run by you.
Sally: Well, I’m all ears.
Adam: I’ve been receiving mysterious texts and videos of billy in situations that don’t exactly paint him in the best light.
Sally: Do you know who sent them?
Adam: It’s from an anonymous source.
Sally: Someone like that, who’s willing to stick their neck and wants nothing in return sounds pretty special.
Adam: Well, the information has definitely piqued my interest.
Sally: Well, I’m sure your anonymous source would be glad to hear that.
Adam: Billy might be planning a counterattack against newman media, so it is good to have an arsenal at the ready.
Sally: Mm-hmm. Well, I brought up that very idea with you.
Adam: Which is why I can talk to you about this. Because I can’t exactly trust this anonymous source. Could be walking into a trap.
Sally: Well, anything’s possible, I suppose. But it does sound like they have your best interests at heart.
Adam: Well, it’s someone local, that’s clear. There’s just not many people that would go to that extremes to gather intel on billy and send it to me. Do you have any thoughts on who that might be?
