Victoria: So, looking at the deal memo for the newman media acquisition, I just have a few preliminary questions before we start.
Victor: Well, let me ask you, sweetheart — shouldn’t we wait for ashland? Wouldn’t he want to be part of this discussion?
Victoria: Well, he won’t be joining us.
Victoria: He has an appointment scheduled to monitor his cancer treatment. Well, I mean, naturally, that takes priority. Wouldn’t you agree? Don’t worry. I’ll fill him in on everything that we discuss.
Nikki: Well, I think it’s just wonderful how well the treatment seems to be working. Ashland has made remarkable progress.
Victor: It almost borders on the miraculous, doesn’t it?
Ashland: You know, nate, I’ve never been a religious man, and I — I’ve never really believed in miracles until now. And given the trend of my test results and how good I feel…
Nate: Advances in science and medicine can seem miraculous, especially in cases like this.
Ashland: Nate, I trust you. And I value your opinion as a doctor and as a friend. So please just tell me what’s on your mind.
Lauren: So, after calling him on his long list of excuses, that’s when he plays the supply-chain card, which I found very disingenuous —
[ Scoffs ] Michael?
Michael: Yeah. What?
Lauren: Nate and ashland. You seem very fixated. Care to tell me what that’s about?
> Michael: Alright, pretend you haven’t heard this conversation.
Lauren: Ohh. Okay.
Michael: There are some issues surrounding the clinic behind ashland’s wondrously effective new protocol. They’re registered in peru as a nonprofit, but no one seems to quite know where their funding’s coming from.
Lauren: And this is what you’re working on for victor? His son-in-law’s medical treatment?
Michael: Since ashland’s started to recover, he’s been flexing his muscles around newman/locke. This has victor concerned about how that might affect victoria. And once he heard about the clinic’s curious accounting, well, that was enough to make him very suspicious.
Chelsea: Hey, um, you think i could put vases on the top? Or should I start another box?
Chloe: Well, this is all the fragile stuff, right? So let’s just consolidate.
Chelsea: [ Sighs ] Yeah. You know, growing up with anita in all those crummy motel rooms, I never could have imagined a place like this, let alone one day calling it home. And now I’m about to walk out those doors for the last time, say goodbye to everything. I worked so hard to build a life here, and now there’s no trace of it. It’s all just — it’s all just memories.
Chloe: Moves like this bring all that up, all at once.
Chelsea: Yeah. And the fact that I’m a total failure.
Chloe: Stop. Now. You are not a failure. And not to sound like a greeting card, but every ending has its beginning. This is you being resilient. You are taking control of your& life. You’re reinventing yourself. And once you close this chapter, you’re gonna be able to move forward into the future.
Chelsea: You mean a future without adam.
Chloe: [ Sighs ]
Sally: Hey. I know you.
Adam: How’s it going?
Sally: Great. Yeah. This early-retirement thing is the best. I have been thinking about taking up snowboarding, seeing how it’s the dead of winter and all, just for a couple of quick lessons, and then, aspen, here i come.
Adam: I meant… how are things really going?
Sally: [ Sighs ] The truth?
Sally: I am freaked out about my future. Yo you ready?
provided by… when asthma symptoms strike, airways narrow.
Chloe: Listen, I am not gonna lecture you about what’s-his-name. He is your past. And it really sucks when life doesn’t work out the way you dreamed. Change is really hard, but you made the choice to move out of the penthouse, which was a brilliant instinct. Do you know why? Because you are taking care of you, and, fyi, that is the exact opposite of being a failure. You are a true bad-ass. And your life is about to become so much better.
Chelsea: Can I get that in writing?
Chloe: [ Laughs ] Look, you don’t need me to validate you. You are taking your power back, and it is a sight to behold. But for everything else, I am your girl.
[ Laughs ] I will always be a friend who will love you and support you, no matter what. We have been through so much together.
Chelsea: I know that you’ll never be a fan of adam’S. I get it. But if I have to defend him every single time you come to our home —
Chloe: “Our home”! Oh, my god! No!
Chelsea: Please stop it. It is my life, and this is my decision, and you have to respect that.
Chloe: Okay. I understand that. But you are a mother now. And it’s not just about you.
Chelsea: You’re right. And I am doing what is best for my son. Connor deserves to have a real family. He deserves to be surrounded by all the people who love him — his mom and his dad and his godmother, who I’m looking at right now if she says yes.
Chloe: Wait, you’re — are you asking me to —
Chelsea: Yeah, I mean, I know it’s a lot to ask, but if anything were to ever happen to adam and me, I would feel so much better knowing that connor was with you. You’ve already done so much for him, chloe.
Chloe: The fact that you even thought of me…
Chelsea: Of course. So, is that a yes?
Chloe: Of cou– yes. Of course I would love to be the godmother of your son. And I promise to love him like my very own.
Chloe: Oh, thank you.
Chelsea: You’ve always been such a rock for me.
Chloe: That hasn’t changed. And I know that you’re nervous.
Chelsea: [ Sighs ]
Chloe: It’s totally okay. But I have a feeling that things are going to turn around for us today. I have a really good feeling about it.
Chelsea: [ Chuckles ]
Sally: [ Sighs ] I came to this town to start over from beverly hills, one of the most glamorous spots on earth, to genoa city, wisconsin. And I was willing to put in the work to prove myself. I even took a job as lauren’s gofer when I had already run my own fashion house. But I did it with a smile on my face, and I proved myself again and again. And for what? It has been one dead end after another.
Adam: Oh, well, you’re leaving out the part — through no fault of your own.
Sally: Okay. Maybe I was responsible for a few of those roadblocks, but not this one. I am the one that put newman fashion on the map with victoria’s wedding dress. A couple months ago, I was the creative genius that designed the gown that everyone was clamoring for. And now I am still a genius, but I am I out of a job and I am out in the cold. Literally, I can’t even jump in the car and drive to the beach to try and make myself feel better.
Adam: Well, maybe not. But you could come to society, belly up to the bar with me, and grab a bite.
Sally: I would like that. That’s the best offer I’ve had all day. And, yes, before you say anything, it’s the only offer.
Adam: [ Clears throat ] Well, the day is not over.
Lauren: [ Whispering ] Why would victor feel the need to investigate the funding source for the clinic? You know, some countries’ laws are not as strict as ours, and maybe in peru a nonprofit doesn’t have to be as transparent.
Michael: Well, there are —
Lauren: And didn’t victor and nikki just give a very elaborate wedding in tuscany? Didn’t they welcome ashland into their family with open arms? When was their wedding? Like a few months ago? And all of a sudden victor is trying to undermine it?
Michael: We’re talking about a man who is constantly playing three-dimensional chess, thinking 10 moves ahead. It’s — it’s what makes working for him so interesting.
Lauren: But that does not answer my question. Ashland’s feeling better. He is too young to retire. Why is him going back into the workforce suddenly cause for suspicion?
Michael: Just call it caution. And given ashland’s history and reputation, probably not a bad thing.
Lauren: [ Sighs ] I — I don’t even know what to…
Michael: Alright, to be blunt, it is one thing to make allowances for a man who is about to die, but it is another thing now that it looks like he’s going to live.
Victor: “Miraculous.” Yes. I’m gonna go with that. This new treatment is nothing short of a godsend.&
Victor: Yeah, well, maybe your husband wants to project an image of strength, you know?
Victoria: What does that mean?
Victor: Well, I just wonder why he isn’t here today. I mean, is there more to it?
Victoria: [ Scoffs ] Like what?
Victor: I don’t know. Maybe there are aspects of his illness he doesn’t want anyone to know about except for you.
Victoria: I can assure you that he had a very important appointment scheduled on his calendar, one that he didn’t want to miss. He didn’t try to skip out on this meeting.
Nikki: Of course not, darling. We understand.
Victoria: He’s not trying to hide something, if that’s what you’re saying.
Victor: I’m just curious about his condition.
Victoria: You know, when ashland was going through the chemotherapy, it was awful for him. He was sick and shaky.
Victoria: It was very hard for him to put on a good face because, you know, he didn’t want people to pity him or to be uncomfortable.
Victor: Of course.
Victoria: But now he’s feeling much stronger, and every day he’s more and more like his old self.
Nikki: That is so encouraging.
Victoria: It is. I know.
Victor: I still — you know, I just keep on wondering, why did he go all the way to peru, you know, to find this obscure and experimental, you know, procedure to heal him of his cancer, where he could have found the best institutions that deal with that kind of stuff here in this country?
Victoria: Daddy, you’re dancing around something. What is it that you really want to say? When I get a migraine,
Nikki: Darling, I think your father just wants to know if ashland is really doing as well as he seems to be. That’s all.
Victor: Sweetheart, I’m just wondering how things will look going forward. I mean, ashland expressed the idea that he wants to be very involved in the new business, you know? So, uh, will he be able to withstand all that stress?
Victoria: That is ashland’s intention, as much as his health will allow.
Victor: I guess we don’t have to worry about that. I mean, he seems to have recovered miraculously, you know?
Nate: When you enrolled in this trial, I was careful to temper my expectations. Even though the protocol had shown some promising results, I had doubts, grave doubts, you know, given the unproven nature of the treatment and how advanced your cancer was. But the chemo wasn’t working and you were out of options. You and victoria did the legwork to find the study, and I was not about to stand in your way. Now the results speak for themselves. Your disease has stopped progressing.
Ashland: Well, I was so thankful to find this treatment when we did. You said so yourself that I was running out of time. And then the universe cut me a break. Then to meet victoria and only have a few months with her seemed like a terrible twist of fate.
Nate: This is true.
Ashland: In the beginning, I was adamant. I had no intention of getting on that carousel of endless drugs being pumped through me and getting weaker and weaker. And victoria refused to accept it. And she insisted that I fight, so I did, for her, so that we could have a chance to have more time together. I know I’m not out of the woods yet, nate. I’m just pleased that, you know, I’ve come so far.
Nate: This treatment has exceeded my expectations. I have never been happier to be wrong.
Chelsea: Thank you.
Michael: Of course. I will leave you ladies to your meeting.
Lauren: Well, it was nice having you all to myself, however briefly.
[ Cellphone ringing ]
Michael: Oh. Sorry.
Lauren: It’s alright. Take it.
Michael: Okay. Michael.
Chloe: Thank you for meeting with us.
Lauren: Yes. Why did you want to meet?
Chelsea: We have a proposition for you.
Chloe: It’s about fenmore’s, actually.
Lauren: Oh. Okay. I’m listening.
Chloe: Well, you know how well newman fashion was doing as a division of newman media.
Chelsea: The future looked bright, so many plans, all potentially quite lucrative.
Chloe: It was just a matter of creating the right team to execute it all.
Lauren: Well, I know that newman/locke is buying newman media and you had almost no warning.
Chelsea: None, actually.
Chloe: Still, we see it as an opportunity. Even if victoria had made another call, we believe that her vision was just too limited for the goals that we have in mind.
Lauren: You know, it’s nice seeing the two of you together again. You spark off each other very well.
Chelsea: Aww. We think so.
Lauren: [ Chuckles ] So, chloe and I got past our issues regarding victoria’s wedding dress, but the last time you worked for me…
Chelsea: I behaved abominably. I know.
Lauren: I know we’re putting that behind us, but it will factor into my thinking.
Chelsea: You know, that’s the old chelsea. I’m a different person now, you know? I am focused on just starting over and creating a stable environment for my son. And truly, lauren, I would just like to make it up to you.
Chloe: And these fresh, new ideas that we can bring to fenmore’s, which are already generating so much buzz.
Chelsea: Yeah. We want to build on the momentum, make our success your success.
Lauren: Well, as long as it doesn’t include sally spectra, I will definitely entertain a proposal.
Ashland: I don’t suppose you’ve given any more thought to the offer I made?
Nate: I’ll admit… I was flattered.
Ashland: Something I learned a long time ago — just because someone comes with impeccable credentials, an mba from the most august business school, that doesn’t mean that they’re gonna be the most effective hire.
Nate: I can’t help wondering if you’re only wanting to bring me on board because we’re friends.
Ashland: Well, I’m not, uh, offering you this job because you’re a friend, which you are.
[ Sighs ] I made this decision because I’ve learned to trust my gut and listen to it. You’re gonna need to be mentored, provided with guidance, but you have all the tools that you need. And you come with a world view that is invaluable. You have worked with people going through the — the most difficult life-and-death problems, the most unfortunate and delicate of choices. And you have worked within those systems that control those choices. You understand how decisions that are made at the top impact people. So I am offering the opportunity for you to become one of those decision makers, but on a much larger scale.
Nate: Again, I am flattered, but I am nowhere near ready to turn my back on medicine, even if my career hasn’t turned out the way I planned.
Ashland: I respect that. I just wanted you to understand what my thinking was, why I made the offer, which still stands. I always want someone with your level of integrity and your intellect, someone I trust to be on my team.
Nate: I appreciate the kind words.
Ashland: I’ve enjoyed this, as always, and I hope we can do it again soon, but unfortunately I’ve got to run to my next appointment.
Nate: Here’s hoping your labs have continued to trend in the right direction.
Ashland: Thank you, brother.
Michael: Thank you so much for the information. I’m sure it’s gonna prove to be useful.
Sally: So much talent at one table, all women I am proud to have worked with.
Lauren: It’s too bad you couldn’t trust your own talent. Because, believe me, it would have been enough to make you a success.
Sally: Chloe, I will always be grateful for you taking me on after the mistake that I made, giving me a chance to prove myself. I am very proud of everything that we did together.
Chloe: I’m really sorry it didn’t work out.
Chelsea: Well, that’s life for ya. Onward and upward, right? Uh, if you don’t mind, we’re in the middle of an important business meeting.
Chloe: Best of luck, sally.
Lauren: You’ll land somewhere…eventually.
Adam: Hey! Sally’s gonna be just fine, actually, because she is coming to work with me at newman media. Come on.
[ Whispering ] I am sorry I was late. Parking was a bear.
Sally: No, your timing could not have been more perfect.
[ Cellphone ringing ]
Adam: Will you give me a second?
Sally: We have a lot to discuss.
Adam: Hello? Um…
Michael: Hey, uh, nate, are you in a rush to get to work?
Nate: Uh, no, michael. What’s up?
Michael: I just saw ashland take off looking incredibly well.
Nate: Oh, you two are friends?
Michael: We just met recently, but as someone who’s close to victor and victoria, I mean, I’m relieved to see his condition improving. I mean, it’s that experimental protocol from south america, isn’t it?
Nate: Yeah. Peru. Seems to be working.
Michael: Oh, that’s great. You know, having had my own bout with cancer, I know what a — a roller-coaster ride it can be. I mean, at a certain point, you’re willing to try anything,
[Chuckles] No matter how unorthodox.
Nate: Yeah, I’m sure a lot of patients would agree.
Michael: So, what do you think about this new treatment? I mean, is it the breakthrough the world has been waiting for?
Nate: Well, I only have ashland’s case to go by, but the evidence is compelling… almost too good to be true.
[ Cellphone pings ]
Nate: The hospital. Looks like I do need to get back.
Michael: Sure. Thank you.
Nate: Good day.
Adam: Ah, a man deep in thought.
Michael: What’s going on, adam?
Adam: Well, I should be asking you that. What exactly is my father having you do for him?
Michael: Oh, we still haven’t finalized that. But, you know, I get the feeling your father’s a restless man and he — he sees me as a kindred spirit.
Michael: Have a good day.
Adam: I have kept you waiting again. I’m sorry.
Sally: No problem. Thanks again for the save back there. I assume that you did that so i would seem a little less pathetic.
Adam: What are you talking about? It looked to me like you were holding your own.
Sally: Well, in a few days, when anyone asks, I’ll just say that we couldn’t come to terms on a salary and the deal fell through.
Adam: [ Sighs ] As much as I really enjoyed that mic-drop moment, I actually have been considering offering you a job for real. Lactaid is 100% real milk, just without the lactose.
“The young and the restless”
Can you save water running a
Adam: Look, I know that your goal was to to turn the platform into an actual fashion house because design is your passion.
Sally: Yeah. Victoria pulled the plug on all of it. Newman fashion is dead.
Adam: Well…but you’re business-savvy and you have drive and victoria likes you, which is half the battle. Okay, look, I know this isn’t a dream scenario and we would have to work out the details. And, hell, I don’t even know what you would do or what your title would be —
Sally: Wait, is this on the level?
Adam: A job is yours… if you want it.
Sally: Yes. I want it.
Chloe: It could be an exclusive new line available only at fenmore’s — or some other arrangement that works for us both. But we are open to the full range of possibilities, aren’t we, chelsea?
Chloe: One thought we had was to introduce a new social-media element to your website so we can have streaming video of exclusive fashion events, live q&as.
Lauren: Right. So, is this a subscription model, or is this open for everyone?
Chloe: Um, either — either/or. But I think that we want to show is how to incorporate each season’s new pieces with the basics that you already have in your closet and show them how to create a new, updated, fresh look. So, staying on trend doesn’t have to be this cookie-cutter approach, or it doesn’t have to break the bank.
Chelsea: Right. Yes. Let’s say you like the designs, the pencil skirts I designed for spring. We show you how to wear them as an office look, on a special occasion, as a — um, a date night, depending on, um — dep– uh, depending on —
Chloe: Color, accessories, makeup.
Chloe: We love shoes.
Lauren: Oh, yes, we do love shoes.
[ Laughs ] Now, what about comments? You know social media these days.
Chloe: No, I know. I know. It can be gruesome.
Chelsea: Yes. We can change the posts. You know, anything — we can weed out anything that has a negative connotation to our brand.
Lauren: Alright, well, I am loving what I’m hearing. Why don’t you put together a business plan, and let’s meet later in the week.
Chloe: Thank you so much, lauren. We are thrilled that you are even giving us a shoT.
Lauren: [ Laughs ]
Chelsea: Beyond thrilled.
Ashland: Hello, beautiful. I’m back.
Victoria: How was your doctor’s appointment?
Ashland: The news is still good. The numbers are holding. The cancer is in check.
Victoria: That’s wonderful!
Ashland: Ah, I was braced for the worst, for the doctor to tell me that all of my progress…
Ashland: …Has been erased.
Victoria: Only positive thoughts.
Ashland: You know, I just know how lucky I am, how impossibly lucky. Now I want to hear all about your meeting with nikki and victor, how the discussion about the purchase of newman media went.
Victoria: Well, my father was curious as to why you didn’t attend.
Ashland: [ Laughs ] You know, that is so funny. I often get the sense that your father would prefer to deal with you alone. And when I don’t show, he questions it. It’s very bizarre.
Victoria: That’s my father, always looking for a reason to be disappointed.
Ashland: Well, I hope you explained that only a doctor’s appointment would keep me away.
Victoria: I reminded him of your priority. But, um…
Ashland: But victor had a problem with that.
Victoria: He kept wondering out loud about your treatment and your overall health.
Ashland: In what way?
Victor: Nate and ashland, huh?
Michael: Yes, together, being very chummy. It seemed strange to me.
Victor: Well, I know nate, you know, tried to talk positively to him and offered him some treatment options.
Michael: Still, those two? Friends? Nate’s this genuinely good guy who’s dedicated his life to healing people, the polar opposite of [Chuckles] The “locke-ness monster,” who apparently likes to crush his enemies before breakfast.
[ Chuckles ] That’s the reputation he has. But, you know, when a man faces his own morality…
Michael: Yeah. Granted, a serious illness will force you to reevaluate your life choices.
Victor: But I agree with you. The fact that ashland asked nate to be his best man in the wedding without really knowing him I found rather odd.
Michael: Decency by association.
Victor: That’s a point.
Michael: After ashland left, I went over to nate’s table to say hello and kind of eased into the topic of ashland’s health, you know, this previously unheard-of drug protocol from south america that was getting results that nobody expected, least of all nate.
Victor: What did he say?
Michael: Well, the man’s the head of surgery. He’s not going to run afoul of the privacy laws, especially not with an ex-prosecutor. However, when we were talking about how well the treatment was working, he made this offhand remark that stuck in my mind. “It’s almost too good to be true.” Do you think ashland’s lying? That it’s not really stopping the spread of the cancer? And what would be his motive for saying something like that? If you have type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure…
Chloe: I am so happy about lauren’s response. She seemed really excited about collaborating with us.
Chelsea: Well, why wouldn’t she? Your pitch was brilliant.
Chloe: Thanks. You didn’t do too bad yourself.
Chelsea: [ Sighs ] You mean once I had my head in the game. Sorry. I got so distracted by… you know. I owe you an apology.
Chloe: No, you don’T. Don’t worry about it. It’s an emotional day for you.
Chelsea: That’s no excuse. I need to focus. There’s too much at stake.
Chloe: Well, I’m glad you see that because this is a tremendous opportunity. I just wanted to show lauren that she would be lucky to work with us. And we cannot let sally showing up like that take our eyes off of the prize.
Chelsea: I’m talking about adam. What was that? The way he came to her rescue, pretending to offer her a job? Sally looked shocked, which means that position doesn’t even exist. I am so sick of these games.
Chloe: Then don’t play. Refuse to engage.
Chelsea: It’s easier said than done.
Chloe: Adam just had his company sold out from under him. He is working with his sister and ashland locke, which you know is going to make him crazy. And sally just got cut loose once again. But you and me — we are onto bigger and better things.
Chelsea: You know what? You’re right. Let’s go work on that proposal.
Chloe: I told you today was gonna be a good day. Things are looking up for us.
Chelsea: [ Chuckles ]
Sally: Well, this is so exciting, isn’t it, all of us taking on new challenges? Or hoping to, in your case. Anyway, good luck with lauren. She can be such a stickler. But I’m sure you’ll do great.
Adam: [ Sighs ] Well, here’s your coat. Can’t forget that.
Adam: It’s really cold out there. Got it? Okay.
Sally: Alright, gotta go. Gonna head back to the office and discuss the details of my new job.
Chelsea: Eyes on the prize.
Victoria: Dad was asking about your health in terms of your ability to work.
Ashland: My stamina?
Victoria: Not exactly.
Ashland: Oh. Okay. Then the opposite then. He wants to know if I’m feeling strong enough to be a full partner to you.
Victoria: I’m guessing. He claims that he just wants to know what things are gonna look like moving forward.
Ashland: Well, I can’t answer that. The treatment is new. All we have to go on are the test results. All I know is that I’m just glad to have today [Chuckles] To be feeling like I’m — I’m strong enough to enjoy this — this beautiful thing that we’ve created.
Victoria: I know. I know. And I doubt that it was all directed at you.
Ashland: Do you think he’s toying with you?
Victoria: I’m sure he wouldn’t mind shaking me up a little bit…just because of the chance that you’ll be more involved. I’m sure my father wants me to act like a proper newman and see you as a threat.
Ashland: Well, victor liked me well enough when he thought I’d be checking out prematurely. But now that it looks like I’ll be living long enough to help run his empire, I mean… what was he thinking? That I would use these gifts that I’ve gotten to undermine my wife?
Victor: I’m not sure what ashland locke’s motives are. But something doesn’t smell right.
Michael: I did some digging into the clinic where the experimental trials are being run. I got a call back on the way over.
Victor: Oh, yeah? And what did they say?
Michael: Lo and behold, there’s a shell company providing the cash to finance operations. Guess who the trail leads back to.
Victor: Ashland locke?
Victor: Mm-hmm. Now, why would he conceal the fact that he is funding a clinic in some obscure place in peru, a clinic that has a therapy that saved his life? Why would he not talk about that?
Michael: What are you thinking? The world is full of make or break moments.
Victoria: Just so you know, this was all coming from my dad. Mom was doing her best to try to keep the peace.
Ashland: Well, because nikki has better things to do than to play politics.
Victoria: Yes, most of the time.
Ashland: You know, I wish that victor would stop working so hard to try to get to you, to plant these unsettling thoughts in your head. Clearly, he has an agenda.
Victoria: Well, that’s a given.
Ashland: We’ll just have to be on guard.
Victoria: I love how cool and calm you are in the face of all of this meddling.
Ashland: Well, I’m not like the other men in your life. I’m used to squaring off with my fellow masters of the universe and besting them. And now I have a better sense of how this particular master’s mind-set works.
Victoria: What’s your takeaway?
Ashland: Victor expects unconditional loyalty from his children, but he reserves the right to shift his loyalties as he sees fit, to throw his support into another offspring to suit him without warning.
Victoria: Are you implying that my father doesn’t play fair?
Ashland: He likes to keep you off-balance, each and every one of you kids. I’ve observed that that’s his go-to move. That’s the reason why he is trying to subvert your trust in me. He realizes that you and I are much more formidable as a team. And I think that he was hoping that my illness would keep me from being a force at newman/locke.
Victoria: You might be right about that.
Ashland: I am. But I am regaining my strength every day. And unfortunately for your father, he’s gonna have to contend with the fact that I am going to be a full partner in this business with you. I’m back. And whatever victor may be planning… I will stand with you.
Victor: I want you to keep digging. I think all the answers we are after you’ll find in that clinic in peru.
Michael: Wait a minute. You — you want me to go to peru?
[ Stammers ] For however long this takes?
Victor: That’s right.
Michael: I mean, do you remember a certain promise you made to me when I took this job, having to do with boundaries and lauren being my priority? Do you remember that?
Victor: I promised you i wouldn’t wake you up at 2:00 in the morning. There’s daytime.
Michael: Ohh. She is not gonna like me taking off to south america at the drop of a hat. Ugh! Okay, I’ll do it. Given what I’ve learned already, I’m almost — almost as keen as you are to solve this mystery.
Victor: See? I knew it. I knew this would pique your interest. Cheers.
Sally: What a fantastic day. I can’t wait to show you how smart you were to snap me up.
Adam: Sally, you don’t have to convince me. Just, um, do an amazing job.
Sally: I was feeling so rotten before and played out and sick of all the backstabbing and maneuvering that always seems to be directed at me, when I all i ever wanted…
[ Sighs ]
[ Chuckles ] Thank you so much for giving me this chance.
Adam: [ Inhales sharply ]
