Young & The Restless Transcript

Taylor: Bye, tanya.
[ Sighs ] Thanks so much for meeting me here.
Allie: Yeah, of course. Um…I hope there isn’t a problem. The house is in very good condition.
Taylor: Oh, it’s a lovely place. My realtor told me everything was in satisfactory condition.
Allie: Okay, so would you like me to give you a personal tour, tell you about some of the quirks of the house?
Taylor: I think I can find my way on my own.
Allie: Okay, then I’m not sure what else there is to say. So why is it that you wanted to meet with me in person?
Jack: Allie, I want you to know I would never force any kind of a relationship on you. I recently lost my mother. I have some idea of the enormity of what you’re dealing with. None of it is easy.
Allie: I appreciate you saying that.
Jack: Thank you for this. I hope you find peace soon. I wish you well in all of your endeavors.
Allie: If you’re ever back in la in the future, maybe we could, um, get together or something. Go for coffee.
Jack: I would like that very much.
Phyllis: Okay, well, now that traci and billy are gone and it’s just us, I’d like to be brutally honest with you.
Jack: I would expect nothing less from you.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Listen, I, um… how do I say… I know that traci has the best of intentions when it comes to her and her grand-niece. I get it. Um…but sometimes, you know, the miss manners approach, it’s — it’s not the best way to go. I’m just saying, you got to throw caution to the wind.
Jack: I know that’s always been your approach.
Phyllis: Well, that’s your approach, too. I mean, traci wasn’t there. She didn’t see the pain in that girl’s eyes.
Jack: But you did.
Phyllis: You did, too. If you want to help this girl, you can. It’s your granddaughter. I mean, you don’t want to stand back, do you?
Jack: You might be right. I can’t expect allie to make the first move — that’s up to me.
Phyllis: Yes, it is. It’s up to you. So let’s book the jabot jet. I’ll meet you at the airport. We’ll be in la in no time.
Lily: Oh, good, you’re back. I have news.
Billy: Okay. Judging by that smile on your face, this could be something good.
Lily: Yeah, guess.
Billy: Um, you discovered a way to make no-calorie chocolate.
Lily: Uh, no, I wish, but no.
Billy: Okay, I think I have it here. Um…you’re launching a space exploration division with chancellor because all the big tech companies are doing it and you would design a much cooler rocket.
Lily: Oh, my god, you’re not even trying to guess. Just guess, come on!
Billy: I don’t want to guess. I just want to know because then I can kiss you and celebrate.
Lily: [ Laughs ]
Chelsea: I have to admit, I was surprised to hear from you.
Nate: Yeah, well, when i picked up the phone to call you, I kind of surprised myself. How have you been?
Chelsea: Really good. Really good. I’ve been spending a lot of time with connor and creating this new clothing brand with chloe. It’s keeping me busy.
Nate: Well, that’s great. Well, when it launches, I’m sure elena will pick up a few pieces.
Chelsea: There are several that she would look fabulous in.
Nate: Well, I will tell her to keep an eye out for them.
Chelsea: Mm-hmm. I’m excited about this next chapter for myself. Although it is…it’s tricky. Being back here brings up a lot of memories.
Nate: Yeah, I can only imagine. And I didn’t mean to make you uncomfortable by asking you to meet me here.
Chelsea: It’s fine. This is the only way to do it.
Nate: Yeah, I just want to do what’s right for everyone.
Chelsea: It’s a big move, if you’re really gonna go for it.
Nate: I know, but I think it’s time for a change.
Tums vs. Mozzarella stick
Lily: My good news is that congratulations are in order. Your first episode of your podcast got overwhelmingly great feedback.
Billy: Are you sure all that feedback’s not from traci? Because, besides you, she’s the only one that listened to the whole thing.
Lily: No, look at the download data. There are a lot more people listening than just traci.
Billy: Wow. I’m actually really surprised by that.
Lily: Why? I mean, clearly your openness and honesty struck a chord, and people connect to your journey of trying to get over the pain of losing your daughter.
Billy: Yeah, well, that’s a relief because I thought I was gonna get trashed for putting something so personal out there, so…
[ Chuckles ]
Lily: No, I mean, look, of course there’s a few negative comments. I mean, every podcast has that, but overall, the response has been positive.
Billy: Well, like I said, if I can help one person not fall into the pitfalls that I did, then all of this would be worth it.
Lily: Well, I think it’s great, and I’m really, really proud of you. And I think that you should take advantage of the enthusiasm and put out episode 2.
Billy: Mm, yeah, well, therein lies the dilemma, because, uh…I’m not sure i have anything else to say.
Chelsea: As you can see, not much has changed since you last lived here.
Nate: Yeah, I can see.
Chelsea: I’m grateful that you’re considering moving back in. I had a buyer all lined up and he flaked at the last minute. It’s nice of you to consider buying an apartment from a former poisoner.
Nate: No, you’ve owned up to your mistake, and it seems like rey’s gotten past it, as well, so I can’t hold it against you either, even though rey was my patient.
Chelsea: Rey’s pretty special. He’s pretty special. Most people would want me locked up for what I did to him, but he’s willing to give me a second chance. I’ll forever be thankful for that.
[ Exhales sharply ]
Chelsea: So…what’s the verdict? Are you in?
[ Knock on door ]
Chelsea: Devon, hey, come in.
Devon: I thought I heard nate’s voice in here. What are you doing?
Nate: Um…how would you like to be neighbors again?
Jack: Not so fast. We’re not gonna just drop everything and take off for california.
Phyllis: Why not?
Jack: Because I’m not ready to throw caution that far to the wind. Look, I want more than anything to bring allie into this family, but I want to think this whole thing through. Look, this is a delicate situation.
Phyllis: Oh, alright. You don’t want her to feel like she’s being ambushed, right?
Jack: Maybe you can help me find a way to approach her that doesn’t come off as pushy. I don’t want to scare her away.
Phyllis: Alright, okay. I mean, can we get her to come to genoa city anytime soon?
Jack: How are we gonna pull that off?
Phyllis: I don’t know, we just concoct some story that you have something of keemo’s —
Jack: No, no, no, no, I am trying to get her to trust me and my family. I don’t want to start a potential future relationship with her on a lie.
Phyllis: A lie — yeah, that would be bad.
Jack: No, you know what? I think I’m just gonna follow her lead on this. Take her up on the offer she made the last time we were with her.
Phyllis: Oh, having coffee, okay in la. Are you going to la anytime soon?
Jack: Well, I don’t have anything on the schedule, but god knows jabot has business in california.
Phyllis: No better time than the present. Seems like you can hop on that plane after all.
Jack: Not so fast. I’m gonna reach out to her, tell her I’m gonna be in la for a day or two, that I’d like to take her up on that coffee, and she’s got a couple days to think about it. And we’ll see what she says and we’ll go based on what she decides.
Phyllis: Oh, that’s nice. That’s a solid plan. A short-term event on neutral territory, right? It’s good. Don’t be pushy, no pressure.
Taylor: Forgive me if I gave you any cause for concern. I just wanted to meet the previous owner. I was curious why someone would want to sell such a nice home in this terrific neighborhood.
Allie: I have my own apartment near school now, and my dad was living here until he recently… he passed away.
Taylor: Oh, I’m — I’m so sorry to hear that. You have my sympathies. Do you have other family?
[ Cellphone rings ]
Allie: Jack. Hi. I’m steve.
Devon: Ah, so you and elena want to move in here after all the work you’ve done on your new house?
Nate: All that work is the reason why elena and I have been talking about moving. You know, after one repair job is done, another problem pops up. Contractor is there so much, i know his entire life story.
Chelsea: Well, I’ll let you two talk. Um…but, nate, just so you know, I am an eager seller. Bye.
Devon: See ya.
Nate: Look, I know you weren’t too happy when I sold this place and moved out, considering that I inherited it from neil, but maybe I can make up for that mistake now.
Devon: Yeah, I’m — I’ve gotten past that. But…no, you won’t get any pushback from me at all. Does this move have anything to do with what’s been bugging you lately? That “bad judgment call” you talked about at the coffee house? ‘Cause it seemed like it was more than just you turning down locke’s job offer.
Nate: Yeah, I’m not sure how that judgment call’s gonna play out. There could be consequences down the road. But I can’t worry about that. I have to move forward and live my life.
Devon: Right. Okay, well, hey, I’m always here to talk to if you want.
Nate: Thank you, but the last thing I want to do is drag you into this mess. It’s better for you not to know. But what I would like to talk to you about is this idea of me joining you and lily. Is this merger really happening?
Devon: Yeah, looks like it.
Nate: And is there really a place for me inside this family business?
Jack: Hi, allie. How are you? I’ve been thinking of you a lot lately.
Allie: I’m hanging in there. I’m a little surprised that you called.
Jack: Actually, I’m a little surprised to be contacting you so soon. I may have mentioned my company does a lot of business in california, and, well, it looks like I’m gonna need to make a trip out there, so I thought maybe I’d take you up on your offer for a cup of coffee or maybe we could grab dinner. No pressure at all.
Allie: [ Sighs ] Jack, I’m not sure. I had assumed that our next meeting wouldn’t be for a while.
Jack: Okay, I understand. Um, you know, I won’t be coming out for a day or two. That’ll give you some time to think about it, and you just tell me what you decide.
Allie: I will.
Jack: Okay, I won’t keep you any longer. It’s great to hear your voice. I hope to see you soon. You take care.
Allie: Goodbye, jack.
Jack: Goodbye, allie.
Phyllis: That’s okay. I mean, she didn’t say yes, but on the positive side, she didn’t say no either.
Taylor: I don’t mean to pry, but is everything alright?
Allie: Yeah. Just some family issues.
Taylor: [ Sighs ] Well, I can relate to that. Unfortunately, I’ve had to deal with plenty of those myself. I’ve…been hurt more times than I can say. But it’s important to have family to turn to when things get rough. I mean, take it from someone who has survived more than you can imagine. You have less time than you think to make amends. And regret is…it’s a hard thing to live with once it’s too late to connect.
Lily: I’m sorry, you don’t have anything more to say? I find that very hard to believe.
Billy: I guess what I’m saying is that I, you know, i went for it on the first podcast. I dove head-first and I went deep, and a lot of that pent-up pain went away. I mean, I talked about delia and I talked about the good and bad things that happened since her death. I talked about making it through and coming out the other side in a positive place. What else do I have to say? I mean, where do I go from that?
Lily: What do you mean? You have so much more to share. I mean, you find ways to keep me fascinated every day.
Billy: Yeah, you have to say that because I live with you and you love me. Not everyone loves me the way you do.
Lily: Look, you have many more stories to tell. Good, bad, lessons learned. Paths not taken. You know, and I understand if you don’t want to keep talking about the past, but billy abbott always has something to say.
Billy: Yeah, but do people want to hear it? That’s what I’m not so sure about.
Lily: Look, do not give up so easily, okay? I mean, not only has the response been positive, but i think it’s had a really positive effect on you.
Billy: You think so?
Lily: Yeah. I think that you’re in a better mood, you know? You’re more focused at work. You’re more energized.
Lily: And I don’t know, maybe I’m being selfish, but I would love more of this good thing.
[ Doorbell rings ]
Billy: Let it ring.
Lily: [ Chuckles ]
Billy: Don’t answer it.
Lily: Oh, god, it might be one of your adoring fans. Let’s see who it is. Hold on.
Devon: Hope it’s not a bad time.
Lily: No, come on in.
Devon: I was hoping to talk to you and billy about the merger.
Billy: Uh, yeah, that’s — that’d be great.
Devon: I figure that we can hash out exactly how the companies are gonna work together and find a place for nate to fit in. I’m hoping to convince him to come on board.
Lily: Well, I am very glad that you asked.
Nate: What is that little smile between you two about?
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Because I think I came up with a plan that all of us can agree on. When tired, achy feet make your whole body want to stop,
Lily: So I’ve been filling billy in on some of my ideas.
Billy: She has quite the vision for this merged corporation.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] So I’m thinking that we need to consolidate and give chancellor-winters a sharper, more two-fold focus.
Devon: Huh. That’s interesting. Tell me more.
Lily: Well, I think that we keep the entertainment and media division under hamilton-winters, and chancellor would focus on merchandise, ancillary products, commercial real estate, such as, you know, theaters, concert venues, hotels, to support the entertainment half.
Devon: Right. Yeah, I mean, that makes complete sense to me. Our resources would feed each other and give our consumers a full package.
Lily: Yeah. So do you approve?
Devon: Absolutely, I approve. Yeah, it’s a corporate match made in heaven.
Taylor: Family is the most precious thing we have in this world. I wish to this day I had more relatives that I could turn to now. Oh. I’m sorry. I’m sorry, I’m afraid I’m touching on things that you might not want to share with a stranger like myself. Oh, that’s always been my problem. I just feel so at ease around people, and then I just start chatting away like we’re old friends.
Allie: No, it’s okay. Even though you don’t know much about my situation, it’s actually kind of comforting to hear that from someone who seems to understand what I’m going through.
Taylor: Mm. Well, I’m no stranger to loss, and my heart goes out to anyone in that kind of pain. And losing a parent, that has to be one of the hardest blows life has to offer. Allie, you must be feeling so lost and alone without your father.
Allie: You have no idea.
Taylor: [ Sighs ] Forgive me, but I couldn’t help but overhear you on the phone. You were speaking with someone named jack, was it? Well, maybe you shouldn’t have put this person off. I mean, perhaps you could use some family right now.
Allie: Why would you say that jack is my family?
Taylor: Oh, well, I just — i just assumed because you said that the call was about family issues.
Allie: Yeah, the situation with jack is really complicated.
Taylor: What family isn’t complicated? But if this family member could be someone you could lean on or could offer you companionship or even support, well, isn’t that what you need right now?
Phyllis: So thank you for bringing me here to get my guacamole fix.
Jack: Hang it up. I’ve known you too long to fall for that old trick.
Phyllis: What trick?
Jack: Well, it’s pretty obvious you coerced me into coming here with you as a distraction.
Phyllis: From what? Empanadas. They have chicken empanadas — look at that. That’s great. I talked to summer earlier. She said that harrison has mastered knowing more italian words than she.
Jack: Why am I not surprised to hear that? My grandson is a bright little boy. I wonder where he gets that.
Phyllis: I wonder where he gets it. She also told me that she found a replacement for me for the marketing job at marchetti.
Jack: A replacement for you? Impossible.
Phyllis: I know that’s impossible, right?
Jack: You have any regrets about not going to milan to work with her?
Phyllis: Um, no, I actually don’t, because if I was in milan, then I wouldn’t have been able to — to go on that great adventure with you to los angeles.
Jack: I wholeheartedly agree. That trip to la would have been far lonelier, far more difficult if you had not been there for me as my constant supporter and my loyal counsel.
Phyllis: And I really want to thank you for letting me talk you into taking those texts seriously.
Jack: I owe you big time, red.
Phyllis: You don’t owe me anything. I’m glad to help. Hi, my name is cherrie.
“The young and the restless”
Devon: Well, I got to say, I’m very excited by this plan.
Nate: Sounds like a win-win for everyone.
Billy: It’s a mogul-level idea from the most brilliant ceo I know.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Thank you. Well, here’s what I’m thinking, is that you handle the entertainment side, we’ll handle the merchandise and hospitality divisions, and, you know, we’ll interact, we’ll share resources, but while we maintain autonomy over our respective divisions.
Devon: You know I love the sound of that very much. But I’ll be open to your ideas, for sure.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Well, you might regret saying that since I have opinions about everything.
Billy: Yeah, right before you got here, her opinion of me was that I never shut up.
Devon: [ Chuckles ] Well, I’m sure I’ll have plenty of opinions about your side of things, too.
Lily: That’s fine. I look forward to hearing it all.
Devon: What do we think that jill’s gonna feel about this and the rest of the board members? ‘Cause I’m not sure they’re gonna be too excited about this consolidation aspect.
Lily: Well, actually, i thought about that, and we spoke with jill and she’s in full support of this.
Lily: And she has full confidence that we’ll gain support from the board, too.
Billy: We basically have unanimous approval, so it’s full speed ahead.
Lily: Yeah, well, first, I do want to ask you, nate — I mean, how do you feel about being a part of all of this?
Nate: Well, given recent circumstances, I’m ready for a new beginning. Clean slate. It’s just a question of exactly where I would fit in your new corporate structure.
Devon: You want to be my coo?
Nate: [ Exhales sharply ] Well — [ Chuckles ] Okay. Uh…I think you have a little too much faith in your cousin’s business skills.
Devon: No, I don’t think so. I disagree with that completely. We know you’re smart, you studied business, you’ve been running the entire surgery department at the hospital for a while now. I know that admin work isn’t easy to do. And you’re already on the board of hamilton-winters.
Nate: Yeah, but that’s just me offering my advice. That’s a whole lot different than me actually doing the work.
Devon: Still, though, man. Still. I’m very confident that you can handle it.
Lily: Yeah, I mean, honestly, your familiarity with the operations of hamilton-winters can only help.
Devon: Absolutely. Absolutely. And listen, if any part of our history is keeping you from saying yes, just look at this as another opportunity to put it all behind us. Can we count you in?
Elena: Are you serious, another three weeks for the part? But you just said that two weeks ago.
[ Chuckles ] Honestly, I’m growing a little impatient here.
[ Cellphone chimes ] One second. Um, I’m gonna have to call you back. I have a better offer. Thanks.
Allie: [ Sighs ]
Taylor: I hope I haven’t overstepped.
Allie: No. Actually, the fresh perspective is really helpful. All my life I’ve had my dad to turn to for advice, and now he’s suddenly gone.
Allie: And I have so many questions that I wish he could answer.
Taylor: I can only imagine how tough that must be, but you seem like a very smart and resourceful young woman. And I’m sure you’ll know where to turn when you need to. And on that last bit of unsolicited advice, I will shut my mouth.
Allie: No, thank you, taylor. Look, I really appreciate everything you had to say. You know, I’m glad that we got the chance to meet. It’s just — it’s so nice to know that my father’s house is going to someone as kind and as sensitive as you are. Is there anything else you wanted to know about the house?
Taylor: Oh, uh, my realtor mentioned the shower knobs are hard to turn.
Allie: Yes. They can be tricky. You need to push and then turn. I can show you how they work.
Taylor: Oh, I’ll follow you in just a minute. I just need to respond to a text.
Jack: I may not owe you, but lunch is my treat. I insist.
Phyllis: You insist, really? I’m not opposed to you buying me a meal ever, ever.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Jack: Is it too much to hope that maybe allie has sent a positive response so soon.
Phyllis: Only one way to find out.
Phyllis: What’s interesting? What’d she say?
Jack: It isn’t from allie, it’s from our friendly anonymous texter. “Doing what I can to help. I think allie might be more receptive soon.” It’s my 5:52 woke-up-like-this migraine medicine.
Phyllis: I just want to find out who this texter is. Why are they so hell-bent on keeping their identity a secret?
Jack: So much for a distracting meal. Best-laid plans.
Phyllis: Just driving me crazy.
Jack: Please take it easy. Your efforts to distract me were successful. As far as this new text goes, I’m looking at it as a step in the right direction.
Phyllis: Really? Okay, you’re very kind. I’m not as kind. I just have a hard time thinking that someone is lovely, you know, when they’re hiding their identity behind a cellphone.
Jack: Okay, maybe the anonymity is an important, necessary means to their helping us out.
Phyllis: Well, but why do they want to help? Why? I mean, why do they have a vested interest in making sure that you and allie become closer?
Jack: I am not going to start questioning their motives. Right now they’re doing me a huge favor. I wouldn’t know I had a granddaughter if not for his or her texts telling me to get to california in the first place.
Phyllis: Oh, it’s a her.
Jack: Wait, how do you know that?
Phyllis: [ Scoffs ] Um…’cause I’m a woman and I know these things, and it’s the tone of the texts. It’s definitely a her.
Jack: Okay, you can take your detective hat off. Obviously, this person does not want to reveal their identity. I worry if we push too hard, if we dig too deep, it’s gonna tick her off — if, indeed, it is a her — and the messages stop and so does the help for our cause.
Phyllis: Alright. Okay. Can we just agree that this last text came from los angeles? Yeah, okay, it probably came from los angeles. Okay, so I can get a special tracker on all the cellphone towers t–
Jack: You’re not — you’re not hearing me. I want you to stop. I don’t want to scare this person away. Let them have their anonymity, at least for now. My priority is allie.
Phyllis: Okay, sure.
Jack: This latest text gives me new hope. Can we just enjoy that for now?
Allie: So remember, push, and then quickly turn the faucet on. The water will come out strong. It might even be the best shower you ever had.
Taylor: [ Chuckles ] Thanks for the tip and the demonstration.
Allie: My pleasure. You should know how everything in your new home works.
Taylor: Well, I have taken up enough of your time. I really appreciate your patience.
Allie: When do you think you’ll be officially moving in?
Taylor: I’m — I’m not sure yet. I have a few family issues of my own to deal with first, and that will determine my next move.
Allie: [ Chuckles ] Now you’ve got me curious.
Taylor: Hmm. Well, let’s just say that at the moment, this house is sort of a safety net for me. It’s important to have that, you know? Don’t ever underestimate the importance of having a place to land, just in case.
[ Knock on door ]
Elena: Hello? Nate? I hope I’m in the right place.
Nate: You are most definitely in the right place.
Elena: What’s going on? Did you rent out chelsea’s place fro the night?
Nate: I’m hoping to do a lot more than that.
[ Sighs ] The penthouse is ours if you want it. Look, I know the construction at the place has been driving you crazy. Hell, it’s been making me nuts, too. So why not move back into this building?
Elena: [ Chuckles ] Just like that?
Nate: Well, we already know we have great neighbors here. And family dinners would be easy to do with devon and amanda across the hall. What? You hate the idea of living here? (Clucking noises)
Elena: Just, um…
[ Chuckles ] Give me a chance to catch my breath.
[ Chuckles ]
Nate: [ Sighs ] Look, I know how much you wanted to make our home together special, and it just wasn’t happening at that house. But if it’s too awkward for you to live across the hall from the apartment you used to share with devon, I understand.
Elena: I mean, it’s certainly crossed my mind. But I think we’ve come a long way since then, and I have been working on rebuilding my friendships with devon and amanda.
Nate: But I don’t want to reopen any old wounds. And if it helps, I spoke to devon. He says he’d love it if we were neighbors.
Elena: He’s all about having family close by.
Nate: But I don’t want you to feel pressured. You need to feel 100% comfortable in your own home. So if you don’t want to live here, I can give the keys back.
Elena: No, nate, um… I think I love the idea of moving here. I think we can finally put that construction nightmare behind us.
Elena: And just focus on the joy of living, just the two of us, with no strangers walking in and out of the house to fix things.
Nate: I am so glad you feel that way. Even though you might have to deal with devon constantly dropping by and drinking our beers and watching games.
[ Chuckles ]
Elena: That’s an interruption I can handle. But I do have to ask — is this what you really want? Or does this have something to do with what’s been going on?
Nate: [ Sighs ] Honestly? I’m determined to move past this whole ashland situation, and this is a part of that.
Elena: Okay. So is this your way of outrunning your demons?
Nate: No, I’m simply looking for a clean slate. This could be exactly what i need to hit the reset button.
Elena: Okay. Okay. I mean, if this is going to help you cope, then who am I to fight against living in this beautiful penthouse?
[ Chuckles ]
Nate: Yes, I feel like this is the right move. Reclaiming an inheritance that i should have never given up in the first place.
Elena: [ Sighs ]
Nate: I think neil left me this place for a reason.
Elena: Wait, you said that there were two surprises.
Elena: And I am clearly blown away by the first, and almost afraid to ask about the second.
Nate: You are going to be living with a newly minted coo.
Elena: [ Gasps ]
[ Chuckles ]
Lily: I cannot believe this is really happening.
Billy: From the second you came up with the idea on how to structure the merger of these two companies, I knew it was brilliant.
Lily: I mean, I wasn’t sure if devon would agree, but now that he and nate are on board, it’s all coming together.
Billy: I didn’t question it for a second. I knew you were gonna pull this off.
Lily: Man, all the family i have in genoa city will be working together.
Lily: I mean, I know, for you, it’s something that you take for granted, even rebelled against because jabot has always been a part of your life, but for me, it really means a lot.
Billy: It should. It really should. And if my siblings were easy to get along with, like devon and nate, maybe I would’ve never left the family business.
Lily: Well, I mean, we’ve also had difficult moments.
Billy: Yeah, but it’s not the same, and you know it. I mean, you all handled your issues like mature, rational adults. The abbotts are petty and stubborn.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Well, I will probably ask you to draw on your jabot experience whenever business disagreements become personal.
Billy: You got it. But I have to warn you, I’m always gonna be on your side, not only because I love you, but because the time I’ve spent working with you, I’ve realized you’re always right.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] That’s true. Thank you for having so much faith in me.
Billy: My pleasure.
Devon: [ Sighs ] My man. I got some very exciting news. But I have a feeling that you had a very big hand in making it all happen in the first place. The family’s finally coming together the way you always dreamed.
Taylor: Thanks again for your time. I know you’re going through a lot right now. Allie, I hope you figure things out and I hope that life gets better for you. And don’t be afraid to reach out to the people who care about you.
Allie: Thanks, taylor.
Jack: [ Exhales sharply ]
[ Cellphone rings ] Allie. I didn’t expect to hear from you so soon.
Allie: Jack, hi. Listen, I thought about it, and I actually would be okay with having coffee while you’re in la.
Jack: That is great. I’ll be in touch with you as soon as I arrive. I’m really looking forward to this.
Allie: I am, too. Goodbye, jack.
Jack: Goodbye, allie.
Taylor: [ Sighs ]
