Traci: I can see that the fantastic weather was too much for either one of us to resist.

Diane: Yes, much too nice to stay cooped up inside. Actually, I was hoping that kyle and summer might feel the same way. I ran into them here yesterday with harrison. I thought I might get lucky again.

Traci: Well, I’m sorry to disappoint you, but harrison’s gonna be busy elsewhere today. Summer found a children’s musical activity she thought he would just love.

Summer: No, I mean, we didn’t buy it for a second. It’s kind of hard to believe that diane just happened to be at the park when kyle and I were there with harrison.

Phyllis: Yeah, right. Well, good for you. Don’t believe anything she says. She’s a liar. I hope you told jack.

Summer: Of course we did.

Phyllis: Good. Good. Because her, you know, showing up at the park and showing up at the wedding, those are all red flags. He needs to keep his guard up.

Summer: Okay, how did this suddenly become about jack?

Phyllis: Because jack needs to protect his family and his grandson, harrison. He needs to protect everyone. He needs to stay vigilant. I mean, this woman, she just cuts through all boundaries. Just —

Summer: And you want to protect jack.

Phyllis: Yeah, of course i want to protect jack.

Summer: I mean, I get it. He’s your friend. You’re looking out for a friend.

Phyllis: Yeah, I’m looking out for — okay, um…hmm. I mean, jack and I — jack and i may be a little more than friends. It just — these days.

Summer: Wait, are you — mom, are you trying to tell me that you’re sleeping with my father-in-law?

Phyllis: Shh.

[ Door opens ]

Kyle: Hey.

Jack: Hey, I was wondering where you and summer were.

Kyle: She dropped harrison and the nanny off at a kids’ thing, and then went to see her mom.

Jack: I’m glad she’s spending some time with phyllis. Her mother has missed having her close by.

Kyle: Mm, it goes both ways. She worries about her mom being too lonely, and we’re glad you’ve been keeping phyllis company.

Jack: I’m not the only one. She’s got plenty of friends.

Kyle: Come on. I saw the dynamic between you two at the wedding. And come to think of it, you never did say why you were out so late afterward.

Jack: I think I know where this is headed, and I’m gonna stop you right now, because it’s none of your business.

Kyle: Ah, there it is. All the confirmation I need that you two must have been together.

Nikki: So, mr. Chairman of the board, you don’t have to worry about your co-ceos being out of the country.

Victoria: That’s right. We’ll be in frequent communication with the executive team. The minneapolis deal will be finalized, and the real-estate negotiations will continue as well.

Victor: Well, you didn’t have to go into all that detail. I trust that both of you will handle things.

Victoria: I just want to make sure that you’re very clear that we have everything under control so that if the thought that you might need to bring adam in as temporary ceo —

Nikki: Darling, I don’t think that even occurred to your father. He’s very supportive of us getting away for a few days.

Victor: I think it’s a hell of a good idea for both of you to get away. Especially you, my darling. Get out from under that dark cloud of ashland locke.

Nikki: [ Sighs ]

Frank is a fan of fast.

He’s a fast talker.

Ashland: Forgive me for intruding.

Nikki: Please feel free to keep on walking.

Victoria: Ashland, we’re just wrapping up a business meeting.

Ashland: Well, actually, i was hoping to have a word with victor.

Victor: I paid you a hell of a lot of money to never have to look at you again. Yet here you are.

Victoria: Ashland, would you please just leave us alone?

Nikki: Actually, it’s time for victoria and me to get going anyway. We still have quite a bit of packing to do for our trip.

Ashland: Well, how long are you going to be gone?

Victoria: We haven’t decided yet, but that shouldn’t make a difference to you.

Victor: Hope you realize there’s no longer any need for you to throw your dark — your bad shadow over this town.

Diane: It was so moving seeing kyle with his family yesterday. My little boy all grown up, a husband and a father himself. It was amazing. And summer was so good with harrison. You would never guess he wasn’t her child.

Traci: Well, yes, they have a very deep bond. Harrison was really close to his biological mother, and I’m sure that it was quite bewildering for him when she left so abruptly. Fortunately, he was way too young to realize she was being arrested, but [Sighs] I’m sure that it’s been really hard for his little mind to comprehend.

Diane: Yeah, he must miss her desperately.

Traci: But summer has really stepped up. She filled the void in his heart. She and kyle have given him all the love and security he so desperately needed. I — it’s obvious. Otherwise, he’d be a very different child today.

Diane: I don’t need to be reminded how much it hurt kyle when I left. I live with that pain every day.

Phyllis: You’re not upset that I’m spending time with jack, are you?

Summer: Uh…I’m just kidding, mom. I mean, it’s pretty obvious that jack is way more to you than just my father-in-law. I mean, you guys go way back, long before I was even born. Plus, jack is the best. I mean, he’s kind and wonderful. And I know that he’ll be careful with your heart.

Phyllis: Yeah. Yeah, he will. We’re taking it slow. I mean, it’s very, very new. Um…you know, we haven’t told the general public about this, by the way.

Summer: Is that because you’re worried about people judging you and dredging up your painful history?

Phyllis: Uh-huh, yeah. But, you know, summer, I’m — I’m a different woman now. You know, I’m a new woman. You know, I’m a woman that’s — that’s good for jack now. You know? And jack trusts me.

Summer: Good.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Summer: I mean, you deserve this, mom.

Phyllis: Okay.

Summer: You really do. You both do.

Phyllis: Oh, thank you. Thanks, babe. Oh!

Kyle: Come on, dad, there’s no reason in holding back. Summer’s with her mom right now, and you know she’ll return with all the details, anyway.

Jack: Okay, fine. Phyllis and I are merely testing the waters.

Kyle: Oh. Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

[ Laughs ] Alright, alright, I’ll stop giving you a hard time. I actually think it’s great news. Summer and I have thought for a while now that you and phyllis still had a connection. It’s about time you guys went for it.

Jack: Please don’t read too much into this. Who knows where this is going? For copd,

Traci: Diane, I am not making comparisons between you and harrison’s biological mother. That might be your conscience talking. But I would never want to make you feel worse than you already do. I believe you that you’re sincere, you have regrets about choices you made in your past. I would never pile anything else on.

Diane: I apologize. I just — I just jumped to conclusions. I…

[ Sighs ] Lately, everywhere I turn, i face hostility, and I know i deserve every bit of it and I — I thought I was prepared to face it, but just the constant incoming fire has me — just has me feeling a little defensive.

Traci: Okay. I understand that this is a very difficult situation. But, diane, you have literally had years to reconcile the past and put everything in perspective, and the people that you’re dealing with now, they’re just — they’re just trying to organize the idea that you really exist. They’re trying to wrap their minds around the fact that you faked your own death.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Traci: I mean, you’ve opened up some old wounds. You might want to pace yourself.

Diane: You’re not the first person to advise me to be patient.

[ Sighs ] I keep reminding myself that i am not entitled to anyone’s forgiveness, that it’s something I have to earn if I want to be accepted again.

Traci: Exactly, and it’s not gonna be easy.

Diane: No, and it’s not going to take overnight, considering all that I have to make up for.

[ Sighs ] But seeing kyle with his family, I could just envision myself being part of it. You know? That’s — that’s all i want. I just want to be there for him now the way I should’ve been all along.

Jack: So you and summer are moving back home? I’m almost afraid to hope.

Kyle: No, no, no, no. You don’t get to change the subject that easily. Something’s off here.

Jack: What does that mean?

Kyle: You and phyllis have been growing closer for months. At mariah and tessa’s wedding, you two were dancing and smiling like you were the newlyweds.

Jack: I wouldn’t go that far.

Kyle: And now that you’ve taken things to the next level, you’re kind of downplaying the whole thing. What’s up with that?

Jack: What do you expect, gene kelly dancing in the rain?

Kyle: Don’t tell me there are problems already.

Jack: No, no. No, I am delighted with the way things are going. We just don’t know where they’re going yet.

Kyle: See, there it is again. Why do you keep anticipating that everything could go off the rails? Usually, someone in a new-again relationship is optimistic and anticipating nothing but happy days ahead.

Jack: When you get to this stage in life, you know better than to get ahead of yourself. I am going to enjoy this — whatever “this” may be.

Kyle: Okay. If there were to be a problem, what do you think it would be?

Phyllis: Okay, enough about me and jack, enough about that. So let’s get back to diane. So, at the park, how’d she act? I mean, did she get — did she get in front of harrison and say, “hi, I’m your grandma”? Did she do that?

Summer: No, I mean, diane was on her best behavior, and it really moved kyle. He couldn’t help it. It reminded him of how she was with him when he was harrison’s age.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. Right. I see what she’s doing. She’s doing the sweet act. That’s what she’s doing.

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: She knows to take someone’s vulnerabilities and to exploit them, and you know what? She’s gonna do the same thing with jack.

Summer: How?

Phyllis: She knows that jack adores his grandson, so she’s gonna use harrison. It’s their common bond. “We have a grandson, jack. That’s what we share together.”

Summer: Okay, you’re not worried that diane’s a threat to your relationship with jack, are you?

Phyllis: Of course not.

Summer: Okay, good, because there’s no chance in hell that that would ever happen.

Ashland: I’m sure you’re not interested in hearing me out, but I’m hoping you will, because I owe you an apology.

Victor: Should be entertaining. Hope you have a good story. Sit down.

Ashland: I doubt you’ll trust anything I have to say, but i feel compelled to say it anyway out loud and for the record.

Victor: Hmm. That’s a hell of a preamble. Proceed.

Ashland: What I did to victoria was despicable. It was horrible, and I’ll regret it to my dying day.

Victor: You mean till the day that you actually die, is that it?

Ashland: Your daughter is the best thing that ever happened to me. And I should have treasured her. I did, in fact, but unfortunately, that realization came too late. And now because of my own greed and my own arrogance, I may have lost her.

Victor: Not “may.” You did lose her, ashland locke. What you did was unforgivable. And she will never forgive you. What can I du with less asthma?

Phyllis: I’m not concerned about diane. I know how to handle diane.

Summer: Well, you know that jack is only tolerating her for kyle’s sake, because he believes that he has a right to make his own decision about her.

Phyllis: Yeah, but guess what? I’m the one who told jack to do that in the first place, by the way.

Summer: But, I mean, given her horrible track record and all of the underhanded things she’s pulled, you’ve got to know that she holds no appeal to him.

Phyllis: No, I get it, but you know what? Jack, he, when he found out that she was alive, wanted to cut her out of the family completely.

Summer: Well, that ought to tell you everything you need to know.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] I know this woman, summer. I have history with this woman. She is a horrible human being. Horrible. But she is a genius at psychological warfare.

Summer: Mom, you are pretty good at that yourself.

Phyllis: Thank you. So you already said that she’s making inroads with kyle, right? You said that just now. That’s what she does. She takes any little soft spot, any little weakness, and she exploits it, and she’s gonna do the same with jack.

Summer: But jack already knows how devious she can be.

Phyllis: No, he is doubting his instincts, summer. He’s already doubting his instincts. I was talking to him the other day, and he was saying, “oh, maybe we should consider that diane has really changed.” I mean, no, I can’t do that. This is really concerning me.

Summer: Mom —

Phyllis: I can’t go through this again.

[ Sighs ]

Summer: Mom, look at yourself. You’re getting so wound up. I mean, you may think that constantly on edge is the best way to protect your relationship with jack, but it is not. It’s self-sabotage.

Jack: I’m not suggesting things could fall apart for phyllis and me. Far from it. If that were the case, I would never have let it get this far. I’m just done trying to predict the future. And that’s not a bad thing. It has left me open to some pretty fabulous surprises. Among them, what happened the other night.

Kyle: Wait, that was a surprise? Really?

Jack: I know you and summer are busy patting yourselves on the back for seeing all of this coming, but it could just as easily have gone the other way. In fact, we came very close to deciding it wasn’t worth the risk, that we were gonna just try to save our friendship, and until very recently, phyllis was more likely to err on the side of caution.

Kyle: Okay. What’s different now?

Jack: Honestly, I keep asking myself the same question. Why the sudden change of heart. Is it just a coincidence that it all seemed to happen when diane walked back into our lives?

Diane: [ Sighs ] Traci, by any chance, have you spoken to kyle or summer about me? I mean, have they given you any idea which way they’re leaning? May– maybe they’re open to forgiving me or not?

Traci: [ Sighs ] I am so sorry. I know that this is a very difficult situation for everyone. And I feel for you, but I don’t want to mislead you in any way.

Diane: Oh, no, I understand. I’m — I’m not asking you to betray any confidences. I just wondered if there was anything at all you could tell me.

Traci: The only thing I can say is what kyle has told you himself. He’s torn, and he’s gonna need some time to process his feelings. And this is not a decision he would ever make lightly.

Diane: No, that’s the sense I’ve been getting from him as well. My son is a very serious and thoughtful young man. I’m sure he’s going to consider all the ramifications before he makes up his mind.

Traci: That’s my nephew.

Diane: Yes, I think if it was just the two of us, he might’ve already decided to give me a second chance, but with his wife and son, he — he needs to take everything into account.

Traci: Diane, rather than worry about all of this stuff, I wish you could take solace in the amazing young man your son has grown up to be. He is someone that you can be so proud of. And whatever decision he ultimately makes, it will be because he has thought it out, thought it through, and knows in his heart it’s the right one for himself and for everyone he loves.

Diane: And I promise, whichever way he goes, I will respect it.

Traci: And the abbotts will, too. Now, I really do have to get going.

Diane: Oh, traci, thank you for taking the time to talk with me. It really means a lot, especially since there are so few people in this town that have anything to say to me at all.

Traci: Diane, you said it yourself — you have a lot to make up for.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Victor: That’s a hell of an apology.

[ Chuckles ] Pathetic. You better get out of town because no one here wants anything to do with you, least of all victoria. She’s sick and tired of your glib apologies, your glib promises.

Ashland: You know, in the past, we talked about what we have in common. Our backgrounds, our outlook on life.

Victor: Has it ever occurred to you that I might have suspected that you did that to manipulate me into feeling sympathetic with you, to gain my confidence?

Ashland: You’re wrong. I freely admit I lied about the cancer, I lied about the treatment, but the rest of it — the abusive father, starting out with less than nothing — that was all true.

Victor: Have you ever listened to yourself? You lied about your cancer. That comes across your lips like nothing. Who does that? Who lies about cancer? And now you’re using your miserable childhood as an excuse?

Ashland: No. Men like us don’t hide behind excuses. We own up to our mistakes. In fact, you wouldn’t be where you are in your life today if it hadn’t been for your wife and your children forgiving you for some pretty ugly sins of your own.

Victor: Do me a favor. Stop comparing yourself with me. Is that an attempt to win some points with victoria? She’ll laugh at you.

Ashland: You seem to be forgetting something — victoria loves me.

Victor: Oh. She trusted you, she loved you — past tense. You lied to her! I will never forgive you for that. You broke her heart. You broke my daughter’s heart. Now you get the hell out of town, or else.

Ashland: That sounds like a threat.

Victor: That’s not a threat, that’s a guarantee. I will do anything in my power to protect my family. One piece of advice for you — don’t you push me to that point.

And it’s easier than ever to get

your projects done right .

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Kyle: Why would there be a connection between my mother coming back and you and phyllis getting together?

Jack: I’m just struck by the timing, and keep in mind, there is a lot of contentious history between the two of them.

Kyle: Okay, are you saying they’re at it again?

Jack: No, I’m saying phyllis wants her out of town, and she has told her as much, adamantly insisting it happen soon. I just can’t help but wonder if, maybe subconsciously, she’s trying to tell diane that there is nothing for her here if she decides to stick around.

Kyle: Does she think my mother came back hoping to make something happen with you? Wait, do you think that?

Jack: No, there’s no hint that that’s where diane’s thinking is these days, but, even if that were the case, it wouldn’t matter. It’s not gonna happen in 1,000 years. And…the two of them are just naturally competitive with each other.

Kyle: But you don’t think that’s why phyllis spent the night with you?

Jack: No. No, of — no, don’t get me wrong. I’m very clear on how phyllis feels about me. She’s — she’s made it quite clear.

Kyle: You’re veering dangerously close to the tmi land.

Jack: Then let’s change the subject. What’s going on with you and your mother?

Kyle: [ Sighs ] Every day, there’s a little moment or incident that makes me think she might really be sincere. But I can’t help wondering if I’m just seeing what I want to see.

Jack: Sounds like you’re trying to justify actually giving her another chance.

Kyle: [ Sighs ] Sorry, dad. I know that’s not what you and definitely not phyllis want to hear, but that’s honestly where I am.

Phyllis: Self-sabotage — seriously? Summer, really? That’s not what I’m doing, by the way. I’m keeping a watchful eye on diane.

Summer: And on jack. I mean, you’ve already admitted that you’re monitoring his reactions to her. You’re worried about her tugging on his heartstrings. And you’re looking out for any sign that her old tricks are working on him. I mean, it kind of sounds like… oh.

Phyllis: “Oh,” what?

Summer: Is that why you dove back into this romance with jack? Was it a jealousy thing?

Phyllis: Are you serious right now? Really? I mean, why does everybody think that? Why does everybody think that i would be with jack because of diane, that viper? I mean, amanda, she insinuated the same thing, and by the way, no is the answer. No, you’re both wrong.

Summer: Okay. I mean, if you say so.

Phyllis: Okay? Thank you. I would never do something like that. I would never use jack just to get back at diane. Oh, my gosh, is that what you think of me?

Summer: Look, all I know is that you do have a tendency to obsess and then overreact.

Phyllis: Okay, I’m not doing that. I’m not overreacting right now. Okay? My relationship with jack is built on — on honesty and — and trust. You know, it has nothing to do with diane. Nothing to do with her.

Summer: Okay. I’m glad to hear it.

Phyllis: Good. Good. I don’t — I don’t want to talk about this. This is — this — this whole conversation is screwing up my mother-daughter time with you. Let’s talk about something else, please.

Summer: Okay, what would you like to discuss?

Phyllis: Marchetti. Let’s talk about marchetti.

Summer: Okay. Well, I don’t know, let’s just say that maybe it was a good thing that you didn’t accept my offer to come out to milan.

Phyllis: Oh, really? Why?

Summer: I don’t really want to talk about it right now, but just know that, one way or another, I’m gonna figure it out.

Phyllis: Alright. I believe in you.

[ Chuckles ] So what about harrison? I mean, can we talk about harrison? Is he a safe subject?

[ Both laugh ] Is he enjoying his grandpa jack?

Summer: Oh, my gosh, yes, he is. I mean, grandpa jack spoils him so much, I can’t even believe it. And somehow, somehow, he seems blissfully unaware of all the turmoil that’s going on around him, but I just don’t know how we’re gonna explain this whole ashland thing to him.

Phyllis: Oh, ashland thing? Oh, wow, I thought something was going on between ashland and victoria, because he’s staying here.

Summer: Wait, are you kidding right now? You don’t know about this?

Phyllis: No. About what? Wait, I’m totally out of the loop.

Summer: [ Scoffs ] Apparently, ashland lied about having cancer. It was all a hoax.

Diane: Thank you.

Nikki: You’re still in town, despite everyone’s advice and warnings. What’s the hold-up? Is your broomstick in for repairs?

Diane: [ Scoffs ] “Advice”? “Warnings”? I think the word you’re looking for is threats. And, yes, I’ve ignored every one of them because the only opinion that matters to me is my son’S.

Nikki: Oh, really? Well, I highly doubt it’s kyle’s opinion that matters to you, as opposed to his bank account. Hey, it’s me…your skin.

Phyllis: This is rich. I could’ve called this one. Seriously. The locke ness monster — what a horrible person he is, using cancer.

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: Using cancer to trick victoria into marrying him so he could take over the company. Amazing.

Summer: It’s beyond heartless.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. It’s beyond. How’s victoria? Is she okay?

Summer: Mm, well, we ran into her at the park right after we laid down the law with ashland, and she covered pretty well, but she must be in a state of shock underneath it all.

Phyllis: I mean, I bet she’s thinking of all those times billy and nick tried to talk her out of marrying him. You know? Telling her repeatedly, “don’t trust him.” I bet this is keeping her up at night.

Summer: Mom, I hope that there’s not even a tiny part of you that is enjoying this.

Phyllis: No. Of course not. This is horrible. I would never wish this upon my worst enemy. I mean, victoria and I, we’re not friends, but this has got to be so painful. How’s nick taking it?

Summer: We haven’t really had a chance to discuss it yet. I mean, it’s not like he was gonna bring it up at mariah and tessa’s wedding reception, and before that, he probably didn’t want to upset me when I was thousands of miles away.

Phyllis: Yeah, I mean, there’s nothing you can do about it.

Summer: But obviously this affects harrison, too. I mean, kyle and I are going to have to do everything we can to protect him from this man who clearly has zero compassion or ethics.

Phyllis: This is a lot for you to deal with, babe. It is. It’s a lot.

Summer: Yeah.

Phyllis: Fending off diane and ashland at the same time.

Summer: Don’t worry, mom. We’ve got this.

Phyllis: You might think you’ve got this. You don’t know who you’re dealing with.

Kyle: I guess I should be grateful that ashland allowed harrison to leave the country while he tried to get his greedy claws into newman enterprises, but it just disgusts me. It’s proof he never cared about harrison like he claimed. And that’s so sad for my son. At least now I don’t have to feel guilty about keeping them apart.

Jack: Oh, I think he’s still gonna put up quite a fight.

Kyle: Why would he? He no longer has to pretend harrison is important to him.

Jack: I’m sure the newmans are hoping he will slink off in defeat, but from my conversation with him, I don’t think that’s gonna happen. No, he wants to re-establish himself in harrison’s life. In fact, I think he looks at that boy as the only good thing that’s left in his life.

Kyle: Oh, so harrison is his back-up family now that he’s destroyed everything and his life has fallen apart? Well, I won’t stand for that.

Diane: I understand why you’re still angry. I know I have a long way to go to make up for the truly horrible things I’ve done.

Nikki: Well, guess what. I don’t want anything from you. All I want is for you to disappear. I mean, that is your specialty, right? Maybe this time you can manage to do it without stealing a corpse and framing half the people in this town for murder.

Diane: [ Scoffs ]

Nikki: Oh, I’m so sorry, am i embarrassing you? Oh, well, no, that can’t be because you and I both know that you have no shame. Otherwise, you would be long gone. Instead, you’re here, hanging around, hoping that the son you abandoned will take pity on you.

Diane: Please leave kyle out of this.

Nikki: Why should I? He’s the only one who can rescue you from the mess you’ve made of your life.

Diane: I don’t need rescuing. I rescued myself. I came back because I’m strong enough to handle —

Nikki: Okay, you know what, diane? Don’t bother with any more of your lies. We all know why you’re here. You are a professional gold-digger.

Diane: That’s not true.

Nikki: Oh, yes, it is true. Your new life didn’t work out the way you wanted it. Now you’re broke, so here you are throwing yourself at kyle’s feet, hoping you can con your way into the abbott fortune.

Diane: This has nothing to do with money.

Nikki: I suppose you can keep preying on his emotions if you like. But kyle is a very smart, savvy young man. He’s gonna see right through you. In fact, he’ll probably tell you to your face that he was better off when you were dead.

Diane: [ Gasps ]

Nikki: Ah!

Diane: Oh! Of course you’ve seen underwear that fits like this…

Phyllis: Summer, I don’t think you get this. I don’t think you realize how vicious and conniving diane can be. I mean, need I remind you that she tried to frame me for multiple felonies?

Summer: Mom, I am not underestimating her. If anything, she is the one that’s underestimating me. She is the one that doesn’t know who she’s dealing with. Because I inherited that protective gene from both sides of my family. So if she does come after us, she’s got a double dose of trouble just waiting for her.

Phyllis: I mean, I like to see this. I like to see this mama bear coming out.

Summer: Yeah, there is absolutely no way that I’m going to let that total narcissist hurt my little boy like she hurt my husband.

Phyllis: Okay, good, good. I mean, I hope she takes my subtle encouragement to leave and go back to la so you don’t have to deal with your mother-in-law anymore.

Summer: I’m dying to know what you said to her to encourage her to leave.

Phyllis: Well, don’t worry about that. You can thank me later if it works.

Kyle: So all of our divisions are back operating in the black.

Jack: After all the trouble locke put us through, we fought our way back.

Kyle: Might be a good time to think about an expansion project.

Jack: Hello.

Traci: Oh, good, you’re both here.

Jack: How was your walk?

Traci: It was good. A little windy and very interesting, as it turns out. I ran into diane at the park.

Kyle: What was she doing there?

Traci: Well, she was hoping for another chance encounter with you and harrison.

Jack: Well, I guess that’s better than her showing up here unannounced.

Kyle: I can’t believe my mother was just hanging out, hoping we’d pass by. What did she have to say?

Traci: It meant a lot to her to meet her grandson. Apparently, harrison has stolen her heart. But I also think that it has hit home in a whole new way how much she’s missed. So I told her that kyle needed a little more time to work through his decision.

Jack: Michael baldwin and i both gave her the same advice the other night after the wedding. Maybe I should’ve been more firm.

Kyle: Maybe it means i shouldn’t leave her hanging. It must feel like a defendant waiting for the jury to come back with a verdict.

Jack: Wait, none of this is your fault. She put herself in this situation.

Kyle: Yeah, that’s no excuse for me to drag this out.

Jack: Kyle, if you hear yourself putting her needs, her feelings ahead of your family’s, I hope alarm bells go off in your head. Keep in mind, she is an expert at focusing everyone’s attention on her.

Nikki: Don’t you ever raise your hand to me again.

Diane: Like this?

[ Both shouting indistinctly ]

Victoria: Mother! Stop it. Stop. What is going on? What? Diane? Oh, my god. How is this possible?

Diane: Oh, I thought everybody in town knew that i was alive and well. I’m surprised your parents didn’t tell you.

Nikki: I didn’t want to burden you with the pain of knowing that that bitch is not six feet under.

Diane: Oh, and congratulations on all your success. I followed your career from afar.

Victoria: Seriously? I come in here, you’re attacking my mother? You can spare your phony praise.

Nikki: You know what, diane? The longer you keep your mouth shut, the better off you’ll be.

Victoria: Look, mom, we have a plane to catch. So you can just give me the details when we’re —
