Ashland: You must be very excited.
Adam: About what, exactly?
Ashland: Your expanding universe. There are so many new possibilities for Newman Media.
Adam: More resources don’t always translate into more opportunities.
Ashland: Come on, that’s exactly what you were hoping for when you bid on ChanceCom yourself.
Adam: Not exactly.
Ashland: Okay, true enough. You probably weren’t anticipating working for your sister and you probably thought that you were gonna be running some independent venture, but I-I assure you, this is a scintillating time to be part of Newman/Locke. Great things are happening.
Adam: Well, you can consider me scintillated.
Ashland: I believe you will look back on this moment and be glad you came aboard when you did.
Adam: Well, I think that goes both ways. I think you and Victoria will look back and be very excited that I stuck around.
Ashland: [ Laughs ] Ooh, well, there’s that famous Newman confidence.
Adam: Hey, I’m just being serious. ‘Cause I actually have a proven track record of success in this field. And I have done a damn good job with Newman Media, and you have not had any complaints about my work.
Ashland: Fair enough, but the situation has changed.
Adam: Yes, but the work remains the same.
Ashland: Still, you are going to have to make some adjustments. You’ve been the — what, the sole decision-maker for a very long time. That’s not the case anymore.
Adam: Yes, I have accepted the fact that my father wants more of a say. And Victoria will occasionally want to weigh in, if, for no other reason, to remind me that she’s the boss.
Ashland: Not just your sister and not just occasionally. Adam. We own the company. We will be charting its course and giving you direction, not the other way around. Now, if you’re not comfortable with that, that’s fine. I would suggest you make a decision and move on.
Billy: Well, this has been very entertaining, trying to watch you take the high road. It’s kind of like watching those videos of cats playing the piano. You can’t really believe what you’re seeing, but you can’t take your eyes off it either.
Sally: Did you just compare me to a piano-playing cat?
Billy: Yeah, I don’t trust cats either. The point I’m trying to make is that Adam cost me my reputation and my job, which is the only reason I put that plan in motion in the first place. And I knew it would work because he loves to see people suffer. Wouldn’t be surprised if he had a fistful of popcorn as he watched the videos that you filmed.
Sally: I don’t know the person you’re describing.
Billy: No? Adam? About yay high, beady, untrustworthy eyes, brown hair to hide his devil horns on his head.
Sally: You’re wrong. Adam felt bad that your life was such a wreck, just like I did.
Billy: Yeah, but you still found the strength to keep filming me.
Sally: I don’t think Adam would have taken advantage of your suffering, which wasn’t real anyway, ’cause you’re obviously fine now. You’ve got this great new gig and you’re happy, which was the whole point of calling off your little scheme, right? To let go of the resentment that was eating you alive, right? Or am I mistaken?
