Phyllis: Hey, amanda!
Amanda: Hey, you!
Phyllis: How are you?
Amanda: I’m good. I’m good.
Phyllis: Good. [ Chuckles ]
Amanda: Everything is going great. Imani and I — we are rocking our new partnership.
Phyllis: Of course you are. I’ve no doubt.
Amanda: How are you?
Phyllis: I’m alr–
Are you phyllis summers?
Phyllis: Um, yes, I am, in the flesh.
This is for you. You’ve been served.
Phyllis: Wait. What? Uh…
Nate: So, what do you think? The blue rug?
Elena: I actually think the beige rug goes better with the wallpaper.
Nate: I never thought that buying a rug online could be so contentious.
Elena: You never thought about buying a rug period, or else you would have had one by now.
Nate: Well, what can I say? You’ve domesticated me.
[ Laughs ]
Imani: Hello, you two. Long time, no see.
Elena: Has it been? I hadn’t noticed.
Imani: Nate, that shirt is such a great color on you. It makes you look even more handsome.
Nate: Why, thank you. I never had someone pay so much attention to my shirts.
[ Both laugh ]
Elena: Hey, since you have such an eye for color, why don’t you help me resolve this issue? Which rug do you like better?
Imani: Oh, well, they’re both nice. It all depends on the decor of the rest of the room. Where’s this going to go?
Elena: Our bathroom. I moved in with nate.
Lily: Have I told you in the last half-hour how happy I am that you ditched your plan to take down newman media?
Billy: Well, if this is my reward, I will abandon my plans more often.
Lily: [ Laughs ] Okay, 100% honesty?
Lily: Are you sure that you want to come to work with me at chancellor? ‘Cause I don’t want you to feel like it’s a consolation prize.
Billy: Do you realize how many people would kill to be your coo at chancellor? I mean smart, experienced people.
Lily: [ Chuckles ]
Billy: Maybe not as much sex appeal, but that’s debatable. There is no one that is going to be more devoted to you than I am, no one that’s gonna want to see you succeed more than i do. You’re about to take over the world, and I couldn’t be more proud to be the man to help you do it.
Lily: Even though things didn’t turn out the way you wanted them to?
Billy: Who said they didn’t? I mean, the whole plan was for vindication, right? To get adam to admit that he set me up for a fall in order to take me down and get his hands on chanccomm. Then when victoria figured out that the downward spiral of billy abbott was all a ruse, well, then I became focused on getting my hands on newman media, which was not a good idea, and thank you for helping me see that.
Lily: Yeah. I mean, she was using you.
Billy: Yeah. Well, you know, I lost focus of the big picture. The last thing I want to be is anchored to the soul-sucking anger that fuels adam’s existence.
Lily: Oh, god, I wish I could have been a fly on the wall when you told him the truth.
Billy: Yeah, it felt good to tell him that he wasn’t worth it. He’s taken up far too much valuable real estate in my mind and in my life. And I deserve better, and you deserve a better me.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Well, I could not be prouder or more in love with you than I am right now.
Sally: [ Sighs ] Chelsea. Hello.
Chelsea: Sally. Any reason you are loitering in the hallways?
Sally: I just had a meeting with adam.
Chelsea: Why don’t you go back to the office? I’ll be there in a few minutes. We can go over your recent article pitches.
Sally: Actually, adam is in the middle of something, so maybe you should come back later.
Chelsea: [ Chuckles ] Well, this is personal, about our son.
Sally: All I’m saying is a little later would be better for him.
Chelsea: He’ll make time for me.
Adam: I thought I told you that I was —
Chelsea: It’s me.
Adam: Nobody knocks anymore. Why do I even bother having a door? I should just take it off the hinges and let everybody waltz in and out of here at will.
Chelsea: Well, you’re in a good mood. Something happen?
Adam: It’s nothing.
Chelsea: Save it for someone who doesn’t know you like I do.
Adam: [ Sighs ] Billy came in here, shooting his mouth off like he had just won the lottery or something, when everybody knows that he is a complete and utter failure and he always will be.
Chelsea: I don’t get it. You made all these changes in your life. You’ve got everything going for you. So, why can’t you let this go? Will this battle between you and billy ever end?
Adam: [ Sighs ] -We are here! -For new homeowners,
Imani: Wow. Moving in together is such a big step. I hadn’t realized you two were that serious.
Imani: Well, congratulations.
Nate: Thank you. We’re very happy.
Elena: Well, I know billable hours are important to lawyers, so we wouldn’t want to get in the way of your work.
Imani: [ Chuckles ] Right. And it looks like my takeout is ready, so I will be on my way. That is your color.
[ Chuckles ] Mm.
Nate: Wow. You really brought the claws out.
Elena: I was just reminding her of our relationship status so she can stop flirting with you.
Nate: You were doing a good deed.
Elena: Yes, I was. What can I say? I’m a giver.
Nate: [ Chuckles ]
[ Cellphone ringing ] It’s roland.
Elena: Roland from the hospital’s board of directors?
Nate: [ Clears throat ] Hi, roland. What’s going on?
Lily: It’s really amazing how quickly you go from basking in the afterglow to thinking about corporate domination.
Billy: Am I that transparent?
Lily: Oh, yeah. You have your business face on. I like it.
Billy: [ Chuckles ] I’m just thinking that there’s something I need to do before i join you at chancellor.
Lily: What, buy some new ties?
Billy: No, not exactly.
[ Clears throat ] I need to go repair the bridge i burned with my mother. I said some horrible things to her before she left, and I need to make it right.
Lily: What are you gonna do?
Billy: Well, I’m pretty sure she’s in chicago this week, isn’t she?
Lily: Yeah. She’s meeting with the execs about the transition.
Billy: Okay. Well, that’s where I’m headed then because this is more than an e-mail or a video chat. I need to tell her in person that I am sorry for what happened at chanccomm and that I am 100% devoted to you at chancellor.
Lily: Okay. And make sure you let her know that I am behind you 100%. Do you want me to come with you?
Billy: You can’T.
Lily: Yes, I can come with you. I can meet the team out there and, you know, be there for moral support.
Billy: Well, that is very sweet of you, but I think I need to do this on my own. Besides, like I said, you are about to take over the world. You need to stay put, get focused.
Lily: Okay. Well, if you change your mind, let me know. I think people don’t realize how hard it is to say I’m sorry.
Billy: Yeah. Speaking of making amends, there’s someone else that I need to apologize to now that I’ve given up my plan to eviscerate adam.
Adam: There is no battle between me and billy. Not anymore. In his warped way, he called a truce. He concocted some retaliation scheme that fell apart, so that’s why he came here to tell me that. It was yet another of billy’s failures.
Chelsea: Sounds like a good thing. So, why do you look like you’ve lost?
Adam: It’s complicated.
Chelsea: He pushed your buttons in a way only billy can?
Adam: Okay, maybe it’s not that complicated after all.
Chelsea: Well, I have a solution. Forget about billy. You are running newman media. You are at the top of your game. Celebrate that. Forget billy.
Adam: Okay. It’s forgotten. Why don’t you have a seat, tell me what’s going on?
Chelsea: I need your help. It involves connor.
Adam: What’s wrong?
Chelsea: He is upset about the idea of selling the penthouse.
Adam: I thought he was having trouble adjusting to the penthouse because of the memories, just like you were. I thought moving out, it would be good for him starting fresh somewhere else.
Chelsea: That’s how he felt at first, but now that we’ve gone through the nuts and bolts of what it’s gonna be like — you know, packing our stuff up, finding a new place — I think it became real for him. He got really upset, he says this thing is totally unfair, and he ended up in tears.
Adam: Well, that’s weird. He rarely cries anymore.
Chelsea: Well, that’s how badly it’s affecting him.
[ Sighs ] Selling the penthouse is the logical decision. We need to escape those ghosts. But it’s not easy, adam, to just pack up your life, all those memories, and move on, you know?
Adam: Yeah. What do you think we should do?
Chelsea: I need your help making this whole thing okay… for connor.
Adam: Of course. I’ll do whatever I can.
Sally: I have the budget for the video project we have been batting around.
Chloe: Great. Um, that isn’t why I wanted to see you. We need to get our arms around this situation.
Sally: I’m sure adam will okay it.
Chloe: Oh, no, that’s not the situation I was talking about. We need to re-evaluate what’s going on with you and chelsea if this is gonna work.
Sally: [ Scoffs ] I’m not the problem. Chelsea is. She’s threatened by me personally and professionally, and if anyone is going anywhere, it should be her.
Chloe: Do you hear yourself? Your negative attitude is having an impact on the platform i created. It’s messing with my dreams, which makes it my problem. So, you work for me, which makes it an even bigger problem for you. Do we understand each other? Clerk: Hello, how can I?
Connor: What do you guys want to do first? We can go feed the horses, or we can go skating. I’ll bet you can wear an old pair of grandma’S.
Chelsea: Well, that sounds like fun, but —
Adam: That is not why we’re here.
Connor: Did I do something wrong?
Chelsea: No. No, not at all. Why don’t we — why don’t we all sit down?
Adam: Yeah. We just wanted to talk.
Chelsea: About moving out of the penthouse.
Adam: I know that change can be scary. And you have had so many in your life, but you know what? A lot of them turned out to be pretty awesome.
Connor: I had to go to boarding school.
Chelsea: Yeah, but you learned a lot and you made friends you’re gonna have forever.
Connor: We went to minnesota.
Chelsea: Yeah, and you got to spend time with your other grandma, and now you live here with your dad. You get to ride horses, and noah’s teaching you how to play hockey.
Connor: I don’t want things to change anymore. I want mom’s house to stay mom’s house. I like it there.
Adam: What are you talking about? Last time I checked, you wanted to move because of all the memories.
Connor: Yeah, but now there’s some new good ones, like the three of us at christmas. Remember? When we were all together and everybody was happy?
Adam: Yeah, we did have a good time.
Connor: And we can do it again.
Adam: Connor, you know that your mom and I — we’re not together anymore.
Chelsea: And, you know, we can be happy anywhere. So, what do you think is best? Should we move in to a house with a big backyard? You can play with all your friends. I can garden. Or maybe we could move into a building with a game room and a pool. You can swim any time you want.
Adam: Yeah, those sound like pretty doable options. Don’t you think?
Connor: Actually, I know a place that has all of those cool things, plus more.
Chelsea: You do? Where’s that?
Connor: Right here! The ranch is big enough for all of us. You’ll never find a place better than this.
Adam: Sounds like you’ve given this quite a bit of thought.
Amanda: It’s a civil suit accusing you of fraud, false advertising, mental distress, and pain and suffering.
Phyllis: I mean, I’ve been known to cause people mental distress and pain and suffering definitely, but false advertising is ridiculous.
Amanda: Yeah, the claimant is a guest who apparently didn’t get the experience that she wanted at escape club.
Phyllis: Seriously? Can I see that, please? Do you mind? Thank you. A guest who didn’t get the experience that they wanted. Oh. This girl. She was a freak. Oh, I remember this. She wanted us to create some event from her youth.
Amanda: Okay, well, that doesn’t sound too bad, reliving a happy memory.
Phyllis: No, it was about getting dumped.
Amanda: Okay, I take that back. That is really weird.
Phyllis: Yeah, but she wanted to do the dumping this time. And she had this crazy script written out, and she wanted all of us to act it out. And I had to explain, “hey, we’re a hotel. We’re not an acting troupe, you know?”
Amanda: Do you still have the script?
Phyllis: Oh, I do! I just had to save this one. Here. I’ll send it to you.
[ Tablet pings ]
[ Scoffs ]
[ Chuckles ] Oh, this is good.
Phyllis: Mm-hmm. See what I mean?
Amanda: This is really good.
[ Chuckling ] What?
Billy: Thank you for coming by. I appreciate it. Why don’t you, uh, have a seat?
Traci: Well, your text was kind of vague, so I really hope nothing’s wrong.
Lily: No, no, no. Just the opposite.
Billy: I wanted you to come by so I could tell you in person that I abandoned the plan. It’s — it’s over.
Traci: Really? You mean no more pretending you’re drinking, you’re gambling?
Billy: No more. That was all just about me trying to rebuild my reputation, and it was taking me to a place that wasn’t good. And, you know, I appreciate the both of you for showing me the light.
Traci: I am so grateful you listened.
Billy: Well, it took me a while to get over the anger and find some clarity. But, uh, I’m good now, and i want to apologize to you for putting you in a position for having to lie for me, even if it was for a short amount of time.
Traci: No, I’m just so relieved, and I know jack will be, too.
Billy: Good. I went to adam, and I told him that I was conning him and that I am done because he’s not worth it.
Traci: Oh, billy, good for you. I just hope there’s some way for you to hang on to this feeling, for you realize that backing away was the right thing.
Billy: No. I agree. And, yes, it feels good.
Traci: And now I should tell you something. Um, I was so upset by this plan that I went to victoria to talk to her about it. I didn’t hold anything back. I told her exactly how I felt.
Billy: Is that right? And what made you think that i needed you to interfere, traci?
Lily: Well, billy, she meant well.
Billy: That’s fine, but, i mean, you know, you don’t think I can handle anything on my own or what?
Traci: Well, of course I do now, honey. But I’m just so grateful that you reassessed and that you listened to two women in your life who really love you.
Billy: You know, I just wish that you would stop treating me like a wayward child.
New vicks vapostick. Strong soothing vapors…
Sally: Since when does hanging out with someone on new year’s eve mean the end of the world?
Chloe: When the someone is adam.
Sally: It wasn’t a big deal.
Chloe: It’s affecting the way we do our jobs, which makes it an enormous deal. How many times do I have to tell you to stay away from him?
Sally: I didn’t force him to hang out with me. The man doesn’t do anything he doesn’t want to do.
Chloe: That’s not the point.
Sally: Okay, I get it. This is about chelsea. She just can’t seem to move on, even though adam has zero interest in rekindling the past. That is why she thinks I’m a problem. She’s angry. She’s threatened. And she’s being kind of vindictive.
Chloe: She is my best friend. She’s also a spectacular designer and your boss. So you running your mouth about her is probably the dumbest thing that you can do. You are putting me in a really difficult position. Both you and chelsea are incredibly talented, intelligent, ambitious women who have so much to offer. We all want this platform to be a success, and I just want us to all get along and work together as a team. But that won’t be possible if you continue on your current trajectory. So fix it.
Sally: I’m not —
Chloe: It wasn’t a suggestion.
Phyllis: “I know all about you and barbara, the tawdry e-mails, the secret meetings.”
Amanda: “Becky, I can explain –”
Phyllis: “Vince, I will do all the explaining here. You are a lying, cheating dog. It just took a while to hear you barking.”
“But I love you.”
Phyllis: “Oh, no, you love that I pay the rent. You love that I cook and clean. And those days are over. Pack your bags and give me back your key. Maybe, if you’re lucky, barbara will let you crash with her, but I think her husband might have a problem with that.”
Amanda: Ohh, I have to admit, I did not see that plot twist coming.
Phyllis: Yeah, and then it gets worse. Oh, gosh. She loses her mind on her ex, and then he gets hit by a bus.
Amanda: Well, you definitely couldn’t do that, so I guess she didn’t get the closure she wanted.
Phyllis: So that’s what this lawsuit is about — her closure. Right? I mean, I never promised her that we would hit her ex with a bus. I never did that.
Amanda: I mean, people get really vengeful after breakups.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Yeah, they do. It’s not so funny anymore, right? I mean, I have been there, so filled with rage and jealousy to the point where I just have to hit someone with my car.
Amanda: [ Chuckles ] You mean you fantasized about it.
Amanda: [ Sighs ] Phyllis.
[ Both laugh ] I’ve made a lot of mistakes when it comes to men. And apparently I keep on doing it. I guess I stood jack up for christmas eve, and he’s out of town, we’re not talking, and i just feel bad. I feel selfish when it comes to jack. I feel like I rely on him too much.
Amanda: It’s okay to rely on a friend, especially when they rely on you, too.
Phyllis: I know. But I’m selfish. I really am. I feel like I’ve taken more from him than I’ve given.
Amanda: Well, it sounds like you’re trying to be a better friend, and that’s good, as long as you do that and you don’t leave him in a lurch.
Phyllis: Yeah. Hey, let’s not talk about jack anymore. Let’s discuss this lawsuit.
Amanda: Oh, don’t worry about that. I can take care of this.
Phyllis: I don’t want you to take care of it. I want to handle this in a different way.
Elena: So, let me get this straight. The hospital board is upset that you took me as your date to the fundraising banquet?
Nate: As far as I know, it’s just roland who has an issue with it. He said he didn’t think it was appropriate for a department head to be dating a first-year attending physician.
Elena: He did seem a little uptight.
Nate: Still, I can’t believe he had the nerve to call me up to criticize me about my personal life. It almost makes me wonder if being chief of surgery’s worth the hassle.
Traci: Well, of course i realize that you’re an adult, billy. That’s why I hold you accountable for your actions.
Billy: Well, it’s not exactly black and white, is it? I mean, how many times did victor screw over jack? How many times did jack feel like he had to stand up for himself? Did you ever go to victor and tell him to back down, traci?
Traci: No, but I called jack out on his behavior countless times. That ridiculous feud did devastating things to our family. And for you to hold that up as some excuse for your behavior, it makes me really sad and really angry.
Lily: Okay, look, at the end of the day, you have someone who cares about you, alright? And it’s better to have someone who cares too much than too little. So, you’ve made a huge decision. You’re in a great place emotionally. Let’s not do anything to mess this up.
Billy: I’m sorry.
Traci: Well, old patterns are difficult to break for all of us.
Billy: That is for sure.
Traci: [ Voice breaking ] I hope — I hope you will call jack with all this good news.
Billy: I will. I’ll call him later.
Traci: Okay. And I hope that you won’t think I’m your meddling sister if i ask what you plan to do now.
Billy: No. Please.
Traci: [ Laughs ] Okay.
[ Sniffles ] Well, I know that jack has offered you a position at jabot, and we all know that daddy would just have been so happy if you were back there.
Billy: Yeah, he did, and i appreciate the offer and I like the idea of that, but, uh, I’m gonna go work for lily over at chancellor as her coo.
Traci: Well, that is fantastic! I’m just so happy for both of you!
Billy: Yeah. It’s gonna be good. Of course, first things first. I have to go find jill and make things right with her.
Traci: Make amends. I’m just so proud of you, billy.
Billy: Thank you.
Traci: I know everything is gonna go just great.
Billy: I believe so, too. I appreciate that.
Lily: Well, it’s getting late. You should probably go pack.
[ Laughs ]
Billy: I love you. Thank you again. I appreciate it. I’ll see you soon, okay?
Billy: [ Sighs ]
Traci: [ Laughs ] Alright, tell me the truth. Is billy as alright as he says he is?
“The young and the restless”
Adam: Connor, you are smart enough to know that your mom — she can’t move to the ranch.
Connor: I just want us to be a family again.
Adam: Your mom and I — we love you very much.
Connor: Then we should try living together again, all of us.
Adam: Look, your mom works with me, and we’re good friends, but we’ve agreed that we’re not gonna be living together.
Connor: But nobody asked me what I wanted. And you were apart for a long time before, then got back together. You haven’t even tried this time.
Adam: That’s because, connor, these — these are grown-up decisions.
Connor: We should try living together again, see if you guys change your mind. You’d at least try if you really want me to be happy.
Adam: Connor, of course we want you to be happy. But sometimes in life things happen that we don’t like, and we have to try to accept them.
Connor: But you promised. You said we were going to be a real family again, that you’d try and work things out.
Adam: I know, and that was a long time ago. And a lot has changed since then.
Connor: I don’t want things to change anymore. I want to be a family!
Chelsea: Connor — connor, I told you. We will always be a family. We are always gonna love each other and want what’s best for each other and — and share the same jokes, share the same memories. You don’t have to live under the same roof to be a family, okay? You could be on the other side of the world. You could be — you could be on the moon, and we would still be a family.
Connor: I just want us to spend time together.
Chelsea: We will still have days like christmas. I promise, okay? And your dad and I — we’re gonna go to every game and every performance at school. We’re gonna spend so much time together — so much! But I do need to find a new place to live. It’s a big job. I could use your help. Are you up for it?
Chelsea: Okay. Come here.
[ Sighs ]
Amanda: I hope you don’t want to countersue because that is rarely worth it.
Phyllis: I’m going to handle this outside of the legal system.
Amanda: I strongly advise against that, but if you do, I do not need to hear —
Phyllis: I am going to offer becky a year membership for free in the escape club.
Amanda: As a strategy of de-escalation. I approve.
Phyllis: I’m gonna call becky now.
Lily: Honestly, billy is fine. He really is. He really turned a corner today. And he was doing great until victor and adam tried to cut him off at the knees, you know, which is why even though i thought his plan was outrageous, I…understood it.
Traci: You wanted to support him?
Lily: Yeah. Yeah. You know, I — I knew that he needed to regain what he lost. But I think I was able to be there for him because I love him, you know, and I knew that he needed someone to believe in him. And everything was going great until, of course, victoria had to insert herself, and then everything went awry. And I was really worried at first that he was gonna fall back into his old self-destructive behavior. But he didn’T. So, I know that, you know, you haven’t trusted his choices in the past, obviously, but I think now you can trust him a bit and let go.
Traci: Oh, I do trust him. It’s just that he takes so long to work everything out.
Lily: Yeah, I know.
Traci: [ Laughs ] Oh, lily, I’m so grateful that you’re in his life, that you love him and understand him, and that you can protect him in a way that he doesn’t resent.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, I think we just get each other, maybe ’cause we were friends for so long before we got together.
Traci: Yeah, you two do go back a long time.
Lily: [ Laughs ]
Traci: You know, I look at you and sometimes I think about what colleen might be like at your age, with all of this life experience behind you and all of these adventures left ahead.
Lily: I know. I’ve been thinking about her a lot, too, lately. Just thinking back to when we were teenagers and we got tattoos and nose piercings. Remember?
Traci: Yes, I do.
Lily: And I’m like, “my gosh, neither one of us would have never know that I would become ceo of chancellor.
Traci: But she would be as proud of you as I am. Honey, ever since you were a little girl, I have always known that you have it in you to do great things. And billy is so fortunate to have you in his life.
[ Chuckles ]
[ Coughing and sneezing ]
Billy: I think that’s it.
Lily: Are you sure you don’t want me to come with you to chicago?
Billy: I mean, look, I would love for you to come to chicago with me, not only to be a buffer between and my mother, but also so I could wine and dine you and show you just how grateful I am for all the support you’ve given me lately. But most importantly, you are stepping into the new role as ceo of chancellor, and you need to be here.
Lily: Fine. When will you be back?
Billy: Before your first day. And I’ll be prepared to do whatever you ask me to do, not that you’re gonna need any help because you’re gonna be amazing. You be you, just on a grander scale, for a much bigger audience.
Lily: [ Laughs ] Have I told you that I love you?
Elena: Are you saying you want to quit your job as chief of surgery?
Nate: No. It’s just, I understood taking a more administrative role would be an adjustment. I just didn’t realize how much of the job had to do with office politics and bureaucracy.
Elena: Yeah, but you’re doing such good work. You’re setting policy to improve patient outcomes, and those fundraising dinners are raising so much money for cutting-edge research.
Nate: I know. That’s why I’m determined to make it work. Well, that and the fact that I like working with you. Even though it makes some peons uncomfortable.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ]
Amanda: …How’d it go?
Phyllis: Okay, my friend becky has gone from disgruntled to the point of suing to vip member of the escape club.
Amanda: That’s terrific.
Phyllis: Yep. She apologized profusely. She even cried a little.
Amanda: What? Phyllis, I am so proud of you. Good job.
Amanda: I guess you don’t need me.
Imani: Amanda, why didn’t you tell me elena moved in with nate?
Amanda: Because I didn’t think it was something that you needed to know.
Imani: Ugh, it would have spared me an awkward and disappointing conversation.
Phyllis: Hey. Is this imani?
Amanda: Phyllis summers, meet my sister, imani benedict, who has been nakedly thirsting after nate hastings for a while.
Imani: Hey, I resent that characterization.
Phyllis: Um, well, nice to meet you. Amanda has told me a lot about you, omitting the thirsting for nate. Um, but you have good taste, you know?
Imani: Thank you for the validation, phyllis. Amanda’s told me a lot about you, too.
Phyllis: Oh. What’d she say?
Imani: That you’re a great friend and a little bit of a hell-raiser.
[ Chuckles ] But that means we’ll get along great.
Phyllis: Okay. Well, we just might.
Sally: Hi. I didn’t realize you left.
Adam: Sally. What do you need?
Sally: I was hoping that you could take a look at a budget I’ve been working on for some upcoming projects.
Adam: Um, now is not a good time.
Chelsea: Try not to take it personally. Adam’s main priority will always be his family. I’m sure you understand.
Sally: Of course I do. I should get back to work. Actually [Sighs]… I spoke with chloe, and there is something that I need to get off my chest.
Phyllis: Hey, jack. It’s phyllis. Um, I — I hope I’m getting your voicemail because you’re in an important meeting and not because you pressed “decline” when you saw my name pop up. Mnh. That’s a joke. Just — anyway, um, I’m just checking in, saying hi. Bye.
Chelsea: Okay. Tell me what’s on your mind. Really. I’m interested.
Sally: [ Sighs ] I just want to apologize for any and all misunderstandings. I hope I have not given you the wrong impression.
Chelsea: And what would that be?
Sally: That I am after adam. Because I’m not.
Sally: I respect him as my boss, and I am very grateful for his professional support, but that’s it. All I want it to work with you.
Chelsea: For me.
Sally: And to learn from you.
Chelsea: Well, I’m really happy to hear that ’cause at the end of the day, we have the same goal — for the fashion platform to be an unqualified success.
Billy: You’re not worth my time. You’re not worth the space in my head. You’re — you’re really not worth anything to anyone. You will always be the runner-up newman, the epic failure, two steps behind all the time.
Lily: Why are you in such a rush to leave?
Billy: Because the sooner i get out of here, the sooner i can get back into your lovin’ arms.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Are we gonna pick up where we left off?
Billy: Oh, no, no, no. Brand-new start.
