Traci: And I think there’ll be room in the box for two of these chocolate chip muffins, please. Thanks so much.
Billy: A whole box of jack’s favorites? You are spoiling him.
Traci: I never hear you complain when you’re the one I’m spoiling.
Billy: I’m not gonna complain about pastries. Are you kidding me? In fact, I’m gonna have a couple of those because I plan to go up to the house and see jack after this.
Traci: Oh, that’s perfect. Then there’ll be plenty. Don’t worry. It’s great that you’re gonna go by the house. Jack’s dying to tell you about his trip to los angeles.
Billy: What’s going on? I mean, last thing I heard is there were a bunch of letters that keemo never sent to him, but I haven’t heard anything since.
Traci: Uh…well, it really is jack’s story to tell, but i can say this. He has found some really surprising information about keemo’s life, and I’m — I’m so hoping that this is going to help him eventually heal.
Billy: Well, that sounds intriguing.
Phyllis: Any word yet?
Jack: From allie, nope.
Phyllis: No, the texter.
Jack: Not a word.
Phyllis: Not a word — that is so weird. They send you a text saying, “we’ll see what we can do,” and then nothing.
Jack: Radio silence.
Phyllis: That is strange and torturous. You seem to be handling it well.
Jack: Oh, if I don’t seem stressed, I assure you, I can’t seem to think of anything else.
Allie: I’m glad you found a buyer so quickly and at higher than the asking price. It’s just that this feels… abrupt.
Tanya: Just take your time.
Allie: Thanks. You know, I was here last night, walking through the rooms, talking to myself. I’m — I’m glad to have your company today.
Tanya: Well, I’m a full-service realtor. If you need someone to listen, I can do that.
Allie: Thank you. It’s just that I spent most of my life in this house, you know? Hard to say goodbye to it.
Tanya: I understand. You know, you’re lucky, though. This is a cash offer. There aren’t gonna be any complications. There’s no appraisal, no inspections. This is one of the simplest transactions I’ve ever had. Your buyer only has one condition to close the sale.
Allie: What’s that?
Tanya: She insisted on meeting you.
Ashland: Well, how are you, my, uh…friend? No? Okay, well, I realize that, at the moment, we’re not in a good place, but I’m hoping once the truth comes out, we’ll be able to fix that.
Nate: You and I were never friends. I was just someone useful to you while you conned victoria and her family.
Ashland: That’s not true.
Nate: Don’t play me like that. It sounds like you didn’t take the advice I gave you to come clean to victoria.
Ashland: Well, actually, I’m just waiting until I can give her the entire story. See, not just that I was set up, but who’s behind it. I know you are skeptical that i was framed, but that is the truth. So my plan is to use all the resources I have at my disposal to find out who’s responsible and make them pay. I just a little more time.
Nate: I’m sorry, ashland. Your time’s up.
Victoria: What is this, an ambush?
Nikki: Darling, calm down.
Victoria: I will not calm down. I can see what’s going on here. It’s not a coincidence that you’re here, and then my father and my brothers show up. This is obviously a planned and coordinated attack on my marriage. You wanted ashland out of here. You wanted to get me alone so that he couldn’t defend himself against the allegations.
Victor: Sweetheart, true. We want to talk to you without him.
Nick: We all know what would happen if ashland were here. We’ve seen it before. He’d make a bunch of excuses and allegations against us, but we know the facts.
Victoria: You know all the facts, really?
Nick: We know the ones that matter, and you need to know them, too. There’s been new information.
Victoria: Oh, of course, there’s always new information with you, because you won’t stop digging around, trying to find things to fit into this theory that you’ve concocted.
Nikki: Victoria, we want to hear from you.
Victoria: Well, it doesn’t seem like you want to listen to me at all, does it? Nick has made it clear that you want to browbeat me into seeing things your way. Well, you know what? To hell with that and to hell with all of you!
Victor: Victoria. Please listen to what we have to say, okay? And tonight’s winning numbers are 18,
Phyllis: Okay, okay, so you’re finally curious about who lured you to la.
Jack: These latest texts raised a lot of questions. Whoever this is has some connection with allie, or at least the means to reach out to her.
Phyllis: Hmm. Well, you know, that text sort of implied a little more than that. You know, it implied that they were the ones who were gonna reconnect you with allie and get her to accept you as her grandfather.
Jack: I think you’re reading a lot into five words.
Phyllis: Oh, maybe, maybe.
Jack: It crossed my mind it could be mai, keemo’s sister.
Phyllis: Oh, okay, do you have her information?
Jack: I chased down her personal information and gave her a call today. She’s as confused by these texts as we are. She has nothing to do with this.
Phyllis: Does she have any idea who it could be?
Jack: No, they’re not close. She’s in saigon, allie’s in la, and they apparently communicate infrequently.
Phyllis: Mm. You’re back at square one.
Phyllis: So it would seem.
Phyllis: Well, keep going. I believe in you. You’re gonna get to the bottom of this.
Ashland: What exactly do you mean “my time’s up”?
Nate: I think you can figure it out.
Ashland: Did you go to the newmans with your accusations?
Nate: They have the right to know.
Ashland: [ Sighs ] You could’ve given me a little warning.
Nate: Why? Because you’ve been so upfront with me? The last thing I want to do is help you get away with this.
Ashland: I’m not trying to get away with anything.
Nate: Look, I’ve heard more than enough from you. It makes me sick that you used me and my position as a way to give your scam more credibility.
Elena: What’s going on here?
Nate: Ashland here is just finding out that his investment in me is not gonna pay off, and he’s not happy about it.
Ashland: I don’t know what he’s told you, but this is just a misunderstanding.
Elena: The hell it is. It was an elaborate scheme, and I can’t begin to tell you how disgusted I am at your behavior.
Ashland: Wow. I’ll save you the trouble. There’s someplace else I have to be.
Nate: [ Sighs ]
Elena: [ Scoffs ]
Victoria: I’m not a child. You can’t control me.
Victor: Sweetheart, i apologize for my harsh tone, but your brother’s right. We’re all here to support you. We want to help you get through a very tough challenge, as you’ve gotten through other challenges before. You’re a strong woman. We know that.
Victoria: That’s right, I am a strong woman.
Victoria: Strong enough to stand up to all of you and ban you from my life, if that’s what it takes.
Nikki: You don’t mean that.
Victoria: It would be a last resort, but it seems to be the only way that I’m gonna make it clear to you that I’m not gonna fall for your strong-arm tactics. I’m not gonna be bullied by you.
Adam: Victoria, you are not being fair to your parents.
Victoria: Shut up. I don’t remember asking for your input at all. In fact, I can’t remember you ever even remotely supporting me.
Adam: We all have a vested interest in your situation. We want to find a way to handle it privately, discreetly.
Victoria: Right, so is that a threat? Are you saying if I don’t play along, you’re gonna go public with these accusations? You’re gonna try to smear my husband in the press?
Victor: Sweetheart, we are being very polite with you. Okay? So kindly watch your tone. Now, the last thing we want is for this to go public. We want to help you. You must know that ashland locke lied to you, lied to all of us, took advantage of our compassion and our big hearts.
Victoria: See, that’s what this is all about. It’s about the company. Control.
Nick: You really think dad would put you through this heartbreak just to regain control of the company.
Victoria: You know, it makes a lot more sense than what you’re all asking me to believe right now…that ashland doesn’t love me and he never did. I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,
Billy: Okay, let’s head to the house. I’m dying to hear what jack learned in los angeles.
Traci: Not so fast, buster. I have something I want to tell you first.
Traci: I listened to the first episode of your podcast last night.
Billy: Oh, gosh. And?
Traci: I found it very compelling. I really think you’ve got something here.
Billy: You’re just saying that because you’re —
Traci: No, no, no, because I’m biased? Well, yes, I’m biased, but I’m saying it because it was moving, billy. You talked about love and loss, and all of it was straight from the heart. It was so brave. I really think that people are gonna respond to this.
Billy: Yeah, wasn’t easy putting that out there, but the fact that there’s any positive response from it, especially from someone that I admire so much, that feels good. Thank you.
Traci: Mm-hmm. If you keep putting out episodes like that, you are going to find an audience.
Billy: I do owe you half the credit.
Traci: Mm. Me, why?
Billy: ‘Cause you gave me the advice about meditating, and i tried.
Traci: [ Chuckles ] I know you did. You talked about it in the podcast.
Billy: So you were listening.
Traci: I was listening. You’ve been reading my books for me for years. The least I can do is return the favor.
Billy: Well, it helped. You know, it really helped me relax and let the feelings kind of bubble to the surface. Putting it out there felt good, even if you were the only one that listened.
Traci: Well, I love hearing that, so let’s take some of this positivity over to jack. What do you say?
Billy: Let’s go.
Traci: Let’s go.
Elena: I don’t think I’ve ever seen you this angry before.
Nate: Because I am furious with both ashland and myself for not seeing through him earlier.
Elena: Look, I keep telling you, you have to give yourself a break. How could you have possibly known that he was lying about having a deadly disease? He put up a good front.
Nate: All true, but there were people that saw through him.
Nate: Billy. He told us before the wedding that victoria was making a mistake. He said ashland couldn’t be trusted, but we just thought he was being jealous.
Elena: Okay, so maybe he has better instincts than we did. But he also hired a team of investigative reporters to look into ashland’s past. He had more information than we did.
Nate: But that story that billy published should’ve been a clue. We dismissed it because the source recanted everything. I wanted to believe that, even if there was some truth in it, none of it was relevant to the person who ashland is today. I should’ve been more skeptical, asked more questions.
Elena: Okay, okay, look. You can keep going down this path, trying to find the clues after the fact, but the thing that matters is that when it counted, you did the right thing.
Nate: I thought you were uncomfortable with me looking into his medical records.
Elena: I mean, sure, yes, i had qualms with your methods. But once you found proof, you took a stance. And most people in your position would’ve covered for ashland to protect themselves, but you exposed him to the newmans.
Nate: It’s clear ashland was hoping I’d sweep this under the rug. He thought I could be bought off with some flattery and donations to the hospital and a job offer. It’s insulting.
Elena: Hey. It sounds like he was even more wrong about you than you were about him.
Nikki: Darling, no one is saying ashland doesn’t love you.
Victoria: That’s exactly what you’re all saying. You’re claiming that ashland lied to me so that he could get his hands on the company because I’m too much of a dimwit to see it happening.
Nikki: No. No one is questioning your intelligence.
Victoria: This conversation is so disrespectful. I mean, can you look at me with a straight face and say that dad would not intentionally break my heart? He had me arrested on my wedding day.
Victor: Sweetheart, wait a minute. That’s ancient history. Besides that, you know that i was right about billy boy abbott.
Nick: What about me, vick? You honestly think I have an ulterior motive?
Victoria: [ Scoffs ] No. No, you don’t, but you have been very upfront about your dislike for ashland from the very start. You’ve been trashing his character for months, and now dad’s given you a reason to say that you’ve been right all along. It must feel amazing. I mean, every one of you here has a reason to want ashland out of the picture.
Nikki: What about me, victoria? I don’t have a reason to want ashland gone. Are you gonna accuse me of betraying you? When hurting feet make you want to stop,
Elena: I know you wish you’d caught on to ashland sooner, but you discovered the truth before you quit your job and before you signed a contract with him.
Nate: I am grateful for that, but, damn, I was close to doing both those things.
Elena: But you still dodged a bullet.
Nate: I did, but…even though I won’t be working for him, he could still find a way to come after me. He has a reputation for seeking revenge.
Elena: Yes, but we talked about this. The newmans are gonna be so glad that you stepped up the way that you did. They’re gonna have your back.
Nate: You’re right. Victor did assure me.
Elena: And you don’t need to worry about ashland trying to ruin your career. Lily and devon want to bring you onboard when they merge their companies. See? You have people in your corner.
Nate: I know, I know. I’m lucky. And the more I think about it, the less I’m concerned for myself. At this point, the person I’m worried about the most is victoria.
Nikki: I have always been your biggest ally, here at the office and in your private life. You can’t say that I haven’t been supportive of your relationship with ashland. I helped plan your wedding.
Victoria: I remember.
Nikki: I was so thrilled to see you in love and finally happy. I just loved seeing the two of you together. I would hold my breath whenever he had to go in for some more tests because I would pray that the two of you would have more time together. And you have to know that that was all very sincere.
Victoria: I know, mom. I know. I know that you’ve always been on our side. Just seems that somehow dad has convinced you that ashland’s been deceiving me this whole time.
Nikki: I didn’t want to believe it. I thought that the things he was uncovering could be explained as coincidences or misunderstandings.
Victoria: That’s it, that’s exactly what they are.
Nikki: Well, I’m sorry, darling, but I can’t believe that any longer. The evidence is overwhelming.
Victoria: [ Scoffs ] Evidence? How can you be convinced by a shaky video of some doctor with some outlandish story? And those bank statements — i mean, what do they even prove? That there was some large deposits from an obscure company of ashland’s? I mean, it’s circumstantial at best. At worst, it’s completely made up. I’m so sorry, but it’s not convincing.
Nick: What about michael’s disappearance? We have not heard from him since he sent back those bank statements from peru.
Victoria: I know, it’s awful. I mean, it explains why he hasn’t returned any of my calls, but that has nothing to do with ashland. I mean, there’s probably 1,000 explanations.
Victor: Sweetheart, you are totally correct in assuming that this wouldn’t convict anyone in court.
Victoria: That’s right.
Victor: You need evidence beyond the shadow of a doubt.
Victoria: I do.
Victor: We have that. It’s what convinced your mother, and hopefully will convince you. Not from some obscure doctor in south america, but from someone that we all trust.
Nick: It’s from nate, vick. I went to him for help. He also trusted ashland. He wanted to see if his friend was telling him the truth. So he took a look at his medical records.
Victor: Do you know what we have found?
Jack: Oh, you got that look on your face, like you’ve got an idea and you won’t let it go.
Phyllis: I just think it’s all weird, whoever’s leaving all of these bread crumbs in los angeles. Its’ just strange. I mean, why did they want to stay anonymous? It makes me uneasy.
Jack: Could it be as simple as they know it’s none of their business and they don’t want to get more involved?
Phyllis: They’re involved. They know so many things about you, jack.
Jack: Tell me something, do you think I’m making a mistake, letting whoever this is serve as an intermediary between allie and me?
Phyllis: Well, I mean, there’s nothing you can do now. I mean, they already are.
Jack: I could reach out to allie myself. I’ve thought of that. But she made it very clear she needs space. It’s — it’s too early. I don’t want to come off pushy. She already knows that her father wanted nothing to do with me. I’m sure she’s a little leery about the grandfather who came out of nowhere.
Phyllis: Okay, well, don’t do that to yourself. You’re a good, kind man. She should be so lucky. This is the best thing that’s ever happened to her.
[ Door opens ]
Billy: Hey, jack.
Jack: Oh, hey.
Billy: Brought some of your favorite pastries.
Traci: Oh, phyllis, I, um, didn’t know you’d be here.
Billy: It’s a good thing we brought a box.
Jack: Phyllis is here helping me determine how best to approach allie.
Billy: I’m sorry. Who’s allie? (Cyclist) why is ice t in a speed walking crew?
“The young and the restless”
Tanya: I just got a text from the buyer. She’s on her way over. I’m gonna run to the car, get the hard copies of the documents, and you’ll both sign, she’ll give you the check, we’ll give her the keys.
[ Sighs ] She loves this house.
Allie: [ Sighs ] Dad…this place made me feel safe. And loved. And understood. This place is home. But, dad, now I know that it wasn’t the house. It was always you, dad. Without you, this place just doesn’t feel the same anymore. It’s just four walls.
[ Sighs ] Without you… I don’t really have a home anymore.
Billy: You have a granddaughter in california? That’s incredible. When is she coming out to visit us?
Jack: Well, the ball is in her court. She has my information, and she can reach out to me whenever she wants.
Billy: Okay. I mean, that doesn’t really sound like you. You’ve always been “the more, the merrier,” especially when it comes to family.
Phyllis: Well, jack didn’t really want to be pushy. She just lost her dad.
Billy: Yeah, I understand that, but doesn’t that mean she could use a little guidance?
Traci: Not if it seems like jack’s trying to take over her life.
Phyllis: You know, I don’t think she’s very close to her mom, so it seems like she’s alone in the world.
Jack: Look, I would like nothing better than to reach out and welcome her into this family. On her time. Look, I don’t want to make the same mistake I made with keemo. I realize now I pushed too hard when he was still grieving his mother, and our relationship never recovered.
Billy: Yeah, no, I understand that, but this is a different situation. I mean, keemo just lost his mother and he was angry and he was looking for someone to blame, and your history is painful. It’s not the same with allie. If phyllis is right, it sounds like she could use a little bit of support. I mean, to me, the mistake would be not reaching out to her.
Elena: I feel terrible for victoria, too. Do you think she knows the truth about ashland yet?
Nate: Well, victor didn’t seem like he was gonna sit on the information I gave him. He wanted her to see the evidence right away.
Elena: Imagine learning that the person you thought was your soulmate was deceiving you in the most profound way. I don’t know how she can trust anyone again.
Nate: And that’s what worries me. Victoria’s been through a lot. When I first came to town, she was just recovering from a relationship that had become physically abusive.
Elena: I didn’t know that.
Nate: Letting ashland into her heart was a leap of faith. And now this.
Elena: [ Sighs ] Well, I don’t even blame her for thinking that he adored her. I mean, it’s how it looked to me. Do you remember his vows in tuscany? They were so moving, and as much as I am disgusted by ashland, am I crazy to think that maybe there’s something real there? Maybe he developed some genuine feelings for victoria, even if it didn’t start out that way.
Nate: I doubt that. To lie to her the way that he did, knowing her history, any man that can do that isn’t capable of love.
Victor: Nate found that the scans taken at memorial of ashland after his heart attack showed nothing. No cancer. They were clear.
Victoria: That doesn’t mean anything. I mean [Scoffs] It’s a mistake. Maybe nate missed something.
Victor: Sweetheart, nate is a trained physician.
Victoria: Yes, dad, but he’s not an oncologist. Obviously, ashland has cancer. I mean, he underwent chemotherapy for months. Are you telling me that he would put himself through something like this as some part of a scam?
Nick: Nate also looked into ashland’s chemotherapy. There’s no record of any appointments. Ashland never underwent chemo, vick.
Victoria: [ Laughs ]
Nikki: Victoria. Victoria, victoria, stop.
Victoria: I’m sorry, but this is absolutely crazy. You’re all out of your minds. Of course ashland underwent chemo. I mean, I drove him to the hospital myself.
Nikki: Yes, but he never wanted you to go in and sit with him. You would drop him off and come right back to work.
Victoria: Mother, of course, it was very hard on him. He didn’t want to see me — see him that way.
Nick: So you never went in with him, you never registered him at the front desk of the oncology wing?
Victoria: No, no. Why would I do that, nicholas? Why? Why would I do that? But I know that he had the treatment. He would always be so sick afterwards. In fact, one time, nate had to bring him home because he wasn’t well enough to do it himself. So are you telling me right now that — that he was faking all of that?
Victor: Sweetheart, look at me. What other explanation can there be?
Victoria: I don’t know, dad. There could be several reasons. Maybe the hospital records were hacked or maybe somebody replaced the scans or the chemotherapy information.
Nick: Vick, come on. Does any of that sound even remotely plausible?
Victoria: I don’t know, okay? But I am gonna find out the answers on my own without any of you. Ashland was right, you’ve already all made up your minds. That’s fine, but I am done talking about this. Ashland and I, we’re leaving for tuscany immediately, where i will run the company on my own without any of you.
Adam: Victoria, victoria, you’re not going anywhere.
Unleash the freshness…
Phyllis: Billy agrees with me. You should reach out to allie and explain how you feel.
Traci: Mm, I don’t know. I think jack has been very wise to be cautious about this. Allie seems like a really sensitive young girl with a lot going on. I think she needs some time to sort things out.
Billy: Yeah, but she also needs support, right? I mean, there’s no one more supportive than jack.
Traci: Of course not. That’s true, but if that is the only reason that jack wants to connect with allie, that would be one thing, but jack is grieving, too, and…be honest. Don’t you have another motivation for wanting to reach out to allie? Isn’t it to find out more about keemo’s life and what you missed?
Jack: Yeah, there’s some truth to that.
Phyllis: I mean, so you should reach out to her, you know? She probably needs somebody to talk to about her dad, and you could keep keemo’s spirit alive.
Jack: You know, if that’s what she needs, she knows how to reach out to me. I just don’t think it’s fair for me to pressure her into making me feel better when she’s still dealing with so much pain.
Allie: [ Sighs ] Dad…am I just gonna have one-sided conversations like this with you for the rest of my life? Or is this just part of grief and something that I’ll move past?
[ Sighs ] I kind of regret coming here.
[ Sighs ] This isn’t how I want to remember this house — our house. No, I want to keep it in my mind the same way that it was with you here.
[ Sighs ] Those are the memories I want to hold onto. Tanya, um, thank you very much for all your help, but I have to leave.
Tanya: Oh. Are you alright?
Allie: Yeah, I’m fine. I just — I have a thing, and i totally forgot about it. I know the buyer wanted to meet, but I can just —
Tanya: No, the deal depends on it.
Allie: Okay, well, she can — she can call, she can e-mail me, but I got to go.
Tanya: I came back in to tell you she’s already here.
Victoria: Get out of my way.
Adam: We’re not done here.
Victoria: Oh, I would say that we’ve been done for quite a while. You asked me to hear you out, so I listened. I listened to what you guys had to say. You told me what nate said, and, quite frankly, I’m disgusted that you would even drag him into this, but I’m not surprised. You’re trying to drive a wedge between ashland and anyone that cares about him, but it’s not gonna work.
Adam: Look, I know what you’re going through. I spent last year in the same spot. I was deceived and I was manipulated by someone that i loved, okay? And she was also faking a medical condition, so…
Victoria: Oh, my god, you are not actually comparing my husband with chelsea, the con artist?
Adam: There are similarities.
Victoria: Ashland is a billionaire who built his company from the ground up, and chelsea has been conning people her whole life.
Nick: Ashland has been lying about his identity his entire adult life, and he built this fortune on a fraudulent inheritance.
Victoria: Oh, come on, that’s totally different.
Nick: I’m just saying, he doesn’t own the moral high ground, vick. If chelsea’s a liar and a scammer, then so is he.
Adam: Look, victoria, the point is I could never imagine chelsea doing something like that to me. But eventually, when I looked at all the angles, I realized there could only be one person that was trying to frame me for poisoning rey. And I couldn’t wrap my head around it. I mean, I felt guilty even thinking it. But then, one day, she slipped up, and I realized that she was playing me. And everything changed in that moment, and that will happen if you go back to ashland. You’ll be in tuscany, trying to live your dream life, and then the truth will hit you that ashland is playing you. Because even the best con artists cannot keep up the charade every second of every day.
[ Knock on door ]
Ashland: Oh. Uh…what’s going on here?
Victoria: I was actually just leaving. I’ll explain to you what happened at home.
Victor: Wait a minute, you wanted ashland to have a chance to explain himself, okay?
Victoria: No, daddy, we’re gonna handle this in private.
Nikki: Why is that? You think that we won’t be fair or are you afraid that ashland won’t have a good explanation?
Ashland: What have they been telling you now?
Victoria: They — they told me that nate looked into your medical records. He was hoping to defend you from all of the allegations.
Victoria: And the scan from a year ago didn’t show any cancer. It didn’t show any — any chemotherapy appointments or treatment. I told them that it was a mistake. Was it?
Ashland: This is never going to end, is it? You are all determined to drive a wedge between victoria and me, no matter how much it hurts her. And you have the nerve to stand there and claim that you were acting out of concern.
Victor: You haven’t answered my question. Do you have an explanation for what nate found?
Ashland: It doesn’t matter what I say at this point. You don’t want to believe me.
Victoria: I want to believe you.
Ashland: I just spoke with nate. I don’t know what you all said to him, but he is definitely rattled. Victoria…it doesn’t matter what I say or how I defend myself against this attack, because there will be another and another and another, as long as we are together. I can’t do this. I can’t keep fighting endlessly, and you can’t turn your back on your family. I wish it was enough for you… to know that I love you with all my heart. Because your love means everything to me. You have changed my life. But this — this right here… this is obviously never going to work. I’m done trying.
Nikki: Oh, my darling.
Victoria: It’s true. Now I know that it’s true. He’s lying. He was lying.
[ Breathes shakily ]
Nikki: It’s alright, it’s alright.
Victoria: [ Crying ]
Nikki: I’m so sorry.
Victoria: [ Sobbing ] Why?
Traci: Jack, if you hold off on contacting allie now, you can change her mind later. You can reach out to her anytime — next week, next month, wait for the holidays, whatever. But if you push too hard and it backfires, you will never be able to fix that.
Jack: You make a good point.
Billy: You know, none of this really matters if this mystery texter convinces allie to reach out to you.
Phyllis: Yeah, I don’t think we should rely on the kindness of strangers.
Jack: Look, you said yourself we can’t control what this person does. So maybe I just have to hope for the best, and one day, maybe I’ll get to thank this person, whoever it is.
Tanya: Come on in. Allie’s been looking forward to meeting you.
Taylor: Hello, allie. I’m taylor jenson. I’m so happy to meet you.
