Billy: Yeah, I apologize for missing our call this morning, but the dog ate my alarm clock, if you know what I mean. Right. Yeah. It happens to the best of us. Oh, they’re doing some work at the office, expanding them or doing whatever, so we’ve had to relocate and now we’re working from home for a little bit. On top of that, I didn’t sleep very well last night, so… okay, I appreciate you understanding. I’ll get rita to reach out to you. Okay. Thanks again. Bye. Come on.
[ Sighs ]
Lily: Good morning.
Devon: Good morning. Look at you and this outfit you got on.
Lily: Thank you.
Devon: You must have an important meeting today.
Lily: It’s the very latest in upper management chic. It’s favored by ceos across the globe.
Devon: Well, you haven’t lost your touch.
Lily: [ Laughs ] Thank you. If you’re wondering why i stopped by, I’m hoping that my very important meeting is with you.
Devon: Wait. What?
Lily: Do you have time to talk, ceo to ceo?
Jack: Hey there. I didn’t see you come in.
Amanda: Oh, I’m sorry. I thought you were in the middle of something.
Jack: Nah. Reading the paper. Please join me.
Amanda: I’d love to.
Jack: So, how’s the new law practice?
Amanda: Oh, it’s going well. Imani and I are building a new client roster, so it takes time.
Jack: It’ll happen.
Amanda: I’m sure that it will. My sister — she has a long list of political contacts, and I’m tenacious.
Jack: That’s a good thing to be.
Amanda: [ Chuckles ] Speaking of tenacious, have you spoken with phyllis?
Jack: Not yet. Milan is one of those cities that grabs hold of you and never lets you go. I’m sure summer’s keeping her very busy. Last time I was there, it was nonstop.
Amanda: I have to say, you have quite the poker face.
Jack: I’ve negotiated my share of contracts.
Amanda: [ Chuckles ] Pleading the fifth, I see.
Jack: Why do I feel like I’m on the witness stand?
Amanda: I just really believe that you and phyllis deserve happiness, and I thought it would be together.
Jack: So did I, for a time. But you know what? Life is unpredictable.
Jack: And so is phyllis.
Rey: So, what do you got going on today?
Sharon: The usual. I’m keeping an eye on this place. I have a few new patients. But you have a big day. Chance is coming back to work.
Rey: At long last.
Sharon: How do you feel about it?
Rey: Well, I was happy to see abby and him looking so relaxed at the engagement party. Maybe I was wrong to be too concerned about him jumping in back too soon.
Sharon: Yeah, it was really nice seeing them out together as a couple.
Rey: Oh, would you look at that? It’s already time to go. How the hell did that happen?
Sharon: Because we enjoy each other’s company. You know, it’s a little thing called physics and chemistry.
Rey: Well, I better get a move on so I can get back to the station and welcome my partner back to the force.
Sharon: Bagel or muffin?
Rey: Mm, surprise me.
Sharon: Okay, and I will get you your favorite latte to go. I’m on it.
[ Cellphone pings ]
Rey: Well, babe, hold off. It’s, uh — it’s from chance.
Abby: [ Sighs ] All he does is sleep, and he looks so pale.
Chance: He was awake at the doctor’s office, right? Just fell asleep on the car ride home. That’s pretty normal.
Abby: Yeah. I’m sure you’re right. I’m just — I’m trying not to lose it.
Chance: Hey. Listen to me. We got him to the doctor as soon as we realized something was off, right? Now, he doesn’t have a rash, doesn’t have a fever. He’s not having trouble breathing. It’s nothing scary like that. So let’s just wait for these lab results, which I am sure will tell us that our baby boy is just fine. Okay? What do you think healthier looks like?
Jack: Late night?
Billy: Uh, just having a little bit of trouble sleeping.
Amanda: Mnh, insomnia’s the worst.
Billy: Yeah. I’m not loving it.
Jack: Well, you’ve had your life turned upside down these last few weeks. It’s enough to keep anyone awake at night.
Billy: I wouldn’t go that far, jack. Just a little bit of professional drama. That’s all.
Jack: Well, don’t undersell it. You lost your job. You lost your company.
Billy: And I got another job that is just as great.
Jack: You’re sure about that? Even though you’re not in charge there?
Billy: My ego isn’t that big. Amanda, will you back me up, please? You know that my gig at chancellor wasn’t about being the boss.
Amanda: Yeah, no. That was not your only concern.
Amanda: [ Laughs ]
Jack: Look, I’m just saying that you went from running a company with your girlfriend to being her second in command, and that’s bound to bring up an issue or two.
Billy: No, actually, none whatsoever. Lily and I are great. We are very happy both at home and at chancellor. And everything that happened at chanccomm is in the rearview mirror, including victor and his minions.
Jack: Well, that’s putting a positive spin on things.
Billy: Jack, don’t go looking for things that aren’t there, okay?
Amanda: I would just say that your brother has always been lily’s biggest cheerleader, so i I know that he loves seeing her come into her own like this.
Billy: That is very true. And thank you for the vote of confidence.
Jack: It still doesn’t explain why you look so tired.
Billy: [ Scoffs ] Look, maybe my brain’s a little revved up, but it doesn’t mean that it’s anything nefarious. You ever think about that?
Chance: Here you go. This should warm you up.
Abby: Thank you.
Abby: I’m just so grateful that you’re here with us.
Chance: Well, there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.
Abby: Oh, my god. Wait. There is somewhere where you’re supposed to be — I mean at the precinct with rey. Today is your first day back on the force, and you’re late.
Abby: No, look, seriously, go. I’ll call you with an update as soon as I hear from the doctor, and then I’ll call devon, too.
Chance: Won’t be necessary.
Abby: What do you mean?
Chance: I already told them I’m not coming. It’s all good.
Abby: [ Sighs ] What terrible timing. First you’re going back and forth about returning, and now this. Are you gonna be in trouble?
Chance: No, no, no, no. Trust me — they, uh — they’ll understand.
Chance: This much more important.
Abby: [ Sighs ] If you say so.
Chance: YeaH. This is the first time this little guy’s been sick since I’ve been home.
Abby: You know, uh, shortly after he was born, he got the sniffles. You should have seen devon and mariah and me. We were totally panicked. His fever spiked so quickly.
Chance: What’d you do?
Abby: Well, we called the pediatrician, and she assured us that it was just a cold and that babies pick up bugs like that all the time, it’s how they build their immune system, and that a fever in an infant isn’t as dangerous as it for an adult.
Chance: I didn’t know that.
Abby: I did, or least I — I should have. I mean, I — I read every single baby book that I could get my hands on. But then when there was a crisis, all that information — it just went right out of my head. It’s crazy how a situation like this can just shake you to your core. You know, I almost wish that he did have a fever because I would know exactly what to do because we’ve been through it before together and we both survived.
Chance: You know, I’m really thankful that you had mariah and devon to lean on during all that.
Chance: I just wish I would have been here, too.
Abby: You know what? Um, maybe we shouldn’t wait. Maybe we should go ahead and alert devon.
Lily: So, I’ve been making my way through the open proposals at chancellor.
Devon: Mm-hmm. But your head is spinning.
Lily: Oh, yeah, it has been a lot. But it’s also been kind of exciting, digging into these new fields.
Devon: I can imagine.
Lily: Yeah, but I got to our entertainment division, and i saw some projects that are in the planning phase still that reminded me of things that you and dad wanted to do at hamilton-winters.
Devon: Oh, really?
Lily: Yeah. Um, actually, it kind of got me thinking about dad and… I don’t know. I was just thinking… he would be proud of us, right?
Devon: Yeah. Yeah. Of course he’d be proud of us. Absolutely. Especially you. Look at everything you’ve accomplished since you got out of prison.
Lily: Yeah. Well, I mean, that’s part of what motivates me, you know, is that dad passed away shortly after I got released, so he never really got to see me rebuild my life and succeed.
Devon: Yeah, I know. It’s true.
Lily: ‘Cause, you know, i mean, I’ve always felt partly responsible that dad passed away so young.
Devon: I don’t know why you feel that way. Please don’T. You don’t — you’re not to blame at all for what happened to him. Nobody is. You’ve done nothing but emulate the kind of person he was, and you rose to become the head of a major corporation. He’d be beyond proud of you.
Lily: Well, thank you for saying that.
Devon: It’s the truth.
Lily: Um, anyway, I was looking at these projects, and i was thinking…
Lily: Well, I had a very crazy thought, something that i can’t really get out of my head.
Devon: A crazy thought? How crazy are we talking?
Lily: What if our two companies joined forces?
Devon: Like a joint venture?
Lily: Yes. Chancellor industries and hamilton-winters coming together to honor katherine and dad. I mean, if we combine our resources, we could do something incredible, something memorable.
Devon: Yeah. That’s — I mean, sounds incredible. What exactly do you have in mind?
Lily: Well, I was thinking maybe —
[ Cellphone ringing ]
Devon: Hang on one second. Hold that thought. Hang on. It’s chance. I should take this, if you don’t mind.
Lily: Yeah, yeah, yeah. No. Take it. Take it. It’s fine.
Devon: Hey, chance. How you doing?
Chance: Hey, devon. Um, look, we don’t want to alarm you, but we thought we should keep you up to speed. We had to take dominic to the pediatrician this morning.
Devon: Why’d you do that? Is he sick?
Chance: Well, he’s, uh — he’s feeling real lethargic. You know, he’s sleeping far too much. He missed a feeding, which isn’t really like him.
Devon: Okay. Where you guys at now?
Chance: We’re home now. We just wanted to keep you updated.
Devon: I appreciate that very much. Do you mind if I come and check on him?
Chance: Yeah, of course. When?
Devon: I can come right now if that’s okay.
Chance: Um… yeah, sure thing.
Devon: Okay. Perfect. I’ll, uh — I’ll be there shortly.
Devon: They had to take dominic to the doctor, and i want to, uh, go check on him, make sure he’s alright. Can we finish this another time?
Lily: Yeah, of course. Is he okay?
Devon: I hope so. Most of your immune system lives right in your gut.
Billy: How dare I impugn your character by showing a little brotherly concern?
Billy: Obviously you think that I’m being defensive. Okay. Maybe I’m just used to being a target. Maybe that is my natural response these days. Or maybe the lack of sleep has me a little bit wired. Either way, I’m sorry. I apologize for being…testy.
Jack: Well, apology accepted. I am still concerned about this insomnia. I have battled with it myself from time to time.
Jack: Maybe I can help. Is it bad dreams? Is it falling asleep? Is it staying asleep?
Billy: That one. The latter. Waking up at 2:00, 3:00, 4:00 in the morning, staring at the ceiling. My body needs the rest, but my mind will not let it. And don’t even talk about quitting caffeine because I’m far too young for that.
Jack: Maybe your subconscious is having a hard time with everything that you’ve been put through. I mean even if during the day things seem stable and steady on and on track.
Billy: Okay. I saw that there. What, are you a therapist now, too?
Amanda: Hardly. I don’t know you as well as your brother jack, but you have been through a lot these past few months, with adam and ashland and victor, and that kind of stress — it can stay with you. And it will mess you up if you let it.
Billy: So, what are you suggesting? I climb to the rooftops and scream at the top of my lungs again?
Amanda: Well, I don’t think that your tenants would appreciate that.
Billy: No, I don’t need them complaining to the landlord.
Jack: Okay, there’s obviously something here I’m not getting.
Billy: Well, way back when amanda and I were getting to know each other, my favorite release was climbing to the rooftop of the grand phoenix and shouting, screaming at the top of my lungs. I even convinced her to try it one time.
Amanda: Yes, yes, he did. And I have to say, it was pretty satisfying.
Amanda: Yes, but we have both grown and moved on from that phase in our lives.
Billy: We have. And we are happy and healthy and functional, healed.
Jack: Some wounds heal. Others appear to and then they open up later, when we least expect them to. At least, that’s been my experience. Look, I’m just saying, maybe there are some issues that you’re not letting yourself look at that you still need to confront.
Rey: Looks like chance won’t be starting today after all.
Sharon: That’s a relief.
Rey: Really? Why?
Sharon: Well, I didn’t want to say anything earlier, but, um, I’m a little worried about him, too. You know, I’m wondering if he’s ready to do police work, get out there and be the solid, stable partner you need on the job. I know abby would like him to stay home longer. So, if they’ve decided to spend more time together as a family, I think that’s a positive.
Rey: Sharon, hold on. It’s not that. It’s, uh — I wish it were, but it’s actually about dom.
Sharon: Oh. What about him?
Rey: They had to take him to the doctor today.
Sharon: Oh, no.
Sharon: Well, I hope it’s nothing serious.
Rey: Well, he wouldn’t say, but he feels like he has to be there for abby and their son while they get it sorted out.
Sharon: Of course, of course. Um, do you think I should check in with her or let mariah know?
Rey: You know, I think for now we should let those two handle it.
Devon: Hey. What’s going on with him? When’d you guys first notice that someone was wrong?
Abby: Well, he’s been sleeping a lot more than usual. He looks pale. And we noticed that he was really tired before we went to mariah and tessa’s engagement party, and we thought maybe he was going through a growth spurt or maybe he just had a long day. But then he slept through the night and he woke up and he was still lethargic, so I called the pediatrician, and she told us to bring him right in.
Chance: Just as a precaution.
Devon: And what’d the doctor say?
Chance: Uh, well, his physical test came back pretty normal, but she wanted to take some blood tests just to be sure.
Devon: She wanted to take blood tests for what?
Abby: You know doctors. They don’t want to jump to any conclusions.
Chance: She didn’t seem overly concerned, if you ask me.
Devon: Did she give any indication at all as to what’s going on with him?
Chance: No, not really. You know doctors, man. They don’t like to speculate.
Abby: Whereas I — I can’t stop speculating. I’ve been combing the internet looking for any clues.
Devon: And what have you found?
Abby: I’ve been searching the baby’s symptoms online, and it seems like there might be a chance that he’s anemic.
Devon: It might be anemia?
Abby: I don’t know. I’m not a doctor.
Devon: That’s treatable, though, right?
Wait, oh, yes
Lily: Wait. I’m sorry. For how long? Uh, okay. Well, yeah. I mean, I guess it is what it is, so — okay, well, let me just, um, chat with billy, and I’ll get back to you. Thank you.
[ Keys clatter ]
Billy: What’s the problem?
Lily: Um, that was the head of facilities. The contractors told him that the construction’s gonna take a while.
Billy: Oh, no.
Lily: So either we work there and we just deal with the drilling and the hammering…
Billy: No, that would be a negative.
Lily: …Or we work here for the meantime.
Billy: Is there really no space in that building for us to work out of?
Lily: No, there’s not.
Billy: What about somewhere nearby?
Lily: I don’t have time to look, and neither do you.
Billy: Isn’t that what the facility manager is supposed to do?
Lily: Well, I mean, I’ll look into it. But, anyway, in the meantime, I have very important news.
Billy: Oh, yeah? Hit me.
Lily: I chatted with devon about us possibly doing a joint venture. We didn’t really get into it because he got called away. He had to deal with dom. Dom, I guess, had to go to the doctor.
Billy: Oh, no. Is the baby okay?
Lily: I mean, I hope so. I told devon to let me know if there’s any news. But, honestly, I think it’s just new-parent jitters.
Billy: I remember those well.
Lily: Oh, yeah. I do, too.
Billy: So, tell me about this meeting that you had — or, at least, as much as you got through.
Lily: Well, I think I was able to pique devon’s interest at the prospect of chancellor and hamilton-winters doing a joint venture together. I mean, this could be really, really groundbreaking.
Billy: You’ve got that sparkle in your eye that I love to see.
Lily: Well, I mean, you know, I like making my work personal. It makes it more exciting for me. Oh, I’m sorry. Am I — am I boring you?
Billy: No. No, of course not. I guess I just didn’t have enough coffee — because you drained it.
Lily: [ Chuckles ]
Billy: Maybe we could get the facilities manager to order us some more.
Lily: Oh, ha ha.
Billy: In fact, I was just at crimson lights and I should have grabbed a bag or two, but it, uh, slipped my mind.
Lily: Because of how tired you were? I mean, I actually heard you get up the last few nights in the middle of the night.
Billy: Yeah. Sorry. I was trying to be quiet. Tried not to disturb you, but, uh, just been feeling a little restless.
Lily: Yeah, but three nights in a row? I mean, clearly something is going on. So…what’s up?
Jack: So, what is michael up to now that he’s stepped away as D.A.? Working on his squash game?
Lauren: [ Laughs ] I only wish. His retirement lasted a whole of, uh, half a day once victor found out about it.
Jack: Oh, don’t tell me.
Lauren: Yes, he is working for him again.
Billy: An offer he couldn’t refuse.
Lauren: How on earth did you guess?
Jack: I know victor. When he wants something, the man does not give up.
Lauren: Yeah, and of course michael said, “oh, no, there’ll be reasonable hours. There’ll be boundaries. I’m not gonna let this job take over my life.” And what happens? The minute victor could, he sends him to south america on a secret mission.
Jack: Classic mustache.
Lauren: [ Sighs ] Isn’t it?
Jack: You have my sympathies.
Lauren: You know, I’m starting to think that this was not a good idea for michael to take this job.
Jack: You know, frankly, I’m surprised he accepted it. Didn’t he like being D.A.?
Lauren: You know, he was getting antsy. He thought that he wanted to go out on top. And now, with victor [Scoffs] Anything can happen.
Abby: I mean, I’m not really good with all this medical-ese stuff, but, I mean, it seems like if it is anemia, that could be treated with iron drops.
Devon: You think maybe it’s his diet? ‘Cause there could be other deficiencies. I know when I don’t get vitamin c —
Chance: I don’t think we ought to be second-guessing the doctors here. I mean, do y’all? We’re not trained in any of this.
Abby: And plus, babies’ little systems are so different from ours.
Devon: I’m sure. Do you want me to give nate a call, though, and see what he has to say?
Chance: I mean, you can, but I’m telling you, man, dr. Bradley, she’s — she’s world-class.
Abby: She really is.
Chance: Didn’t she tell me she’s a friend of nate’s?
Abby: Yeah, he recommended her to us.
Devon: I wasn’t aware of that.
Chance: Look, I just think, in any case, we’re in good hands here.
Devon: Yeah. No, I trust your judgment.
Abby: Well, what if it’s my fault? I mean, what if I took him off breast milk too soon? What if he’s not eating the right foods? And what if he has bad circulation? I try to play with him all the time and we do tummy time, but maybe I need to be more active with him?
Chance: Hey, no, stop. Do not start blaming yourself. Okay? You are an excellent mother. And, look, if that’s the case, those are things that we can adjust if the doctor tells us to.
Devon: Yeah, he’s right, abby. What’s going on with dominic has nothing to do with you or anything you’ve done, okay?
Abby: I’m sorry. Are you accusing me of over-reacting, devon? Because that really isn’t helpful.
Devon: I’m not.
Abby: I mean, I am his mother. I am supposed to protect him. That is my job. What if it’s not anemia? What if it’s something else? And my mind can’t stop going to the worst possible thing. I’m sorry. I — I can’t help it. That’s just who I am. So, you telling me to calm down — it’s just making me more anxious.
“The young and the restless”
will continue. If you think all pads are exactly the same, think again.
Chance: Hey. No one is telling you to calm down or accusing you of over-reacting, okay? This whole thing has just got everybody stressed. Everybody’s on edge. All we need to do is take this thing step by step together. You and me, right? Lean on each other.
Abby: I want to. I just — I — I can’t keep my worries in check. I’m not built that way.
Chance: Look, facts are different than feelings. So let’s focus on what we know. Abby, I’m telling you, if dr. Bradley was that concerned, she would have admitted him for observation right then and there. But she didn’T. She told us to go home. She told us to let him rest. And that’s what we’re gonna do, okay? So let’s get these test results, and then we’ll go from there.
Abby: Everything you’re saying makes perfect sense, but it doesn’t make it any easier.
Devon: How you doing, little man? I usually get called over to help quiet you down when you’re being fussy. This is a change of pace, huh? That’s okay. It’s okay ’cause babies change their routines all the time as they’re growing. I learned that.
