Young & The Restless Transcript

Nikki: Thank you for joining us.
Nick: Sure. Why’d you want to meet?
Victor: Have you heard anything from victoria yet?
Nick: So, you want to know if vick has called since you, uh, used your influence to block investors from putting any money in her and ashland’s company?
Victor: That’s right. Have you?
Nick: Uh, no, but I know exactly how that conversation will go.
Victor: Oh, really?
Nick: It will involve lots of name-calling and unsavory language.
Nikki: Darling, you’re not certain that she thinks you were in on it.
Nick: Mom, it’s gonna be so easy for victoria to figure out what happened. She’s gonna know that dad blocked all of her business partners from investing any money. She’s gonna know that dad got all of his information from me because she trusted me and that’s gonna be completely gone.
Victor: Son, do I need to remind you that you volunteered that information? I didn’t ask you for it.
Nick: I know.
Nikki: I just worry this is gonna push her even further away. I have tried to call her many times, and she has not responded.
Victor: Well, this is conjecture on both of your parts, alright? Let’s wait and see how things work out.
Victoria: So, how did your search for a new office building go?
Ashland: Uh, well, a couple of possibilities in midtown, steel, glass monoliths, very impersonal, that kind of thing.
Victoria: Well, we can work with that. But you sound a little unenthusiastic about it.
Ashland: Uh, there’s this other option, this charming building in tribeca.
Victoria: Oh! I like the sound of that.
Ashland: Yeah, well, it could be perfect, actually. It was recently renovated by a media company who couldn’t get off the ground, so it’s state-of-the-art and we wouldn’t have to change much. And the best part is we could likely get it for below market value because they are very motivated to sell.
Victoria: Do you have any idea how handsome you are when you talk about buying commercial real estate at a bargain price?
Ashland: [ Laughs ] Well, their loss is our gain. Poor bastards. They had one of their investors pull out, so they lost most of their funding. Uh, but that’s not gonna happen to us. You know why? Because that’s the advantage to self-financing.
Victoria: That sounds so wonderful.
Ashland: Hey. Are you okay? Is everything alright?
Victoria: Sure. I’m fine.
Ashland: Well, you just seem a little off. Um…are you having second thoughts?
Sally: Chloe. What’s happening?
Chloe: Hey, sally. Well, nothing was happening until you showed up, and I mean that on five different levels.
Sally: I’d like to take that as a good thing.
Chloe: Oh, it’s great.
Sally: What are you doing?
Chloe: Oh, I’m just having a business meeting with my partner. Can’t you see?
Sally: Is chelsea late?
Chloe: Yeah, or possibly forgot the whole thing or just chose not to show up.
Sally: I see.
Chloe: Please, please sit down and join me.
Chloe: Um, yeah, I just wanted to congratulate you on your new gig. Thank you. I mean, taking over as ceo at newman media — that is a big job. But I know you can do it.
Sally: Thanks, chloe. Coming from you, that means a lot.
Chloe: But, you know, I was a big surprised that you accepted the job offer, considering your love for fashion design.
Sally: Yeah, I initially had some mixed feelings about stepping away from something that I knew and loved, but it turns out to be the best professional decision that i ever made. Taking on this challenge, I have found a new calling.
Chloe: Good for you. Ah, sometimes I feel like i could use a new calling.
[ Sighs ]
Sally: What? I thought you and chelsea were killing it. Is your new line not going the way that you’d hoped?
Chelsea: Wow. You look like you belong in that chair.
Adam: I do belong in this chair. This is where the ceo of newman enterprises sits.
Chelsea: Of course. Can’t wait to see your portrait hanging up there.
Adam: [ Chuckles ] It’s not really my style. What can I do for you, chelsea?
Chelsea: I need you to sign this permission slip for connor’s camp. They’re taking a canoe trip up north.
Adam: You couldn’t sign it?
Chelsea: Apparently not. You’re the parent on record since you enrolled him. I can’t even deal with these camp people right now. They’re real sticklers.
Adam: Well, doesn’t it make you feel good that your child is in good, capable hands?
Chelsea: No. Right now it makes me feel annoyed.
[ Hand taps ]
Adam: Is everything okay, chelsea?
Chelsea: Everything’s fine. Just some challenges at work. Chloe’s become a real taskmaster.
Adam: Well, some people get passionate about their dream jobs.
Chelsea: You should know. Congratulations, by the way. I know what this job means to you. I hope it’s everything you want it to be and that you’re truly happy.
Adam: I am very happy. But I have been concerned about you lately. Are you sure everything’s alright? For copd,
Chloe: We’re still adjusting to the new work environment, finding our own rhythm.
Sally: But you and chelsea have been partners before, in the same roles, with great success. So, what’s different this time?
Chloe: It’s hard to say.
Sally: Well, I’m not trying to drag you down. I just want to figure this out.
Chloe: Yeah, no, I appreciate it.
Sally: I mean, you and chelsea wanted to create a space where you could create that magic again. And it didn’t work out at newman media, so now lauren gave you that opportunity. It seems like it would be a dream situation.
Chloe: Yeah. Lauren is the best.
Sally: Yeah. She’ll support you 100%. As long as you’re not trying to sabotage someone she cares about, which I found out the hard way. But she’s an amazing boss. So…what’s going on?
Chloe: I agree. Lauren is great. That’s why this has just been so…
Sally: Well, let’s get to the bottom of this. I’m a problem solver.
Chloe: Look, anytime you start a new venture, there are going to be different challenges.
Sally: You’re a good friend.
Chloe: What do you mean?
Sally: You’re covering. Because it’s clear to me and probably anybody else that’s talked to you over the last few months that your biggest challenge this time around… should be right here, your missing partner.
Chelsea: I’m fine. It’s just — it’s become a real struggle with chloe. I’m tired of being managed.
Adam: Well, I can relate to that.
Chelsea: I know you can. You’ve dealt with the ultimate micro-manager — victor newman. Well, chloe is getting to that level.
Adam: As bad as my father? Come on. That — that’s not possible.
Chelsea: I don’t know if chloe’s feeling pressure, you know, because lauren’s the one backing us. Or maybe she feels like she has something to prove because newman media got rid of the fashion division. But it’s not working.
Adam: Okay. Well, have you told her this?
Chelsea: I have. I’ve tried, and nothing changes. She’s obsessed with these deadlines. It’s all about efficiency and productivity. You know, I need creative spark. There’s no joy. It’s not fun.
Adam: Well, sometimes work isn’t fun.
Chelsea: With chloe, it’s always been fun.
Adam: Wasn’t there a time where she cut up some of your pieces backstage at a fashion show?
Adam: Well, that sounds like a good time.
Chelsea: You don’t get it. That’s part of our chemistry.
Adam: Yeah. You have walked a fine line with her. Sometimes you’re bffs, partners in crime, and occasionally you are bitter rivals.
Chelsea: Mm. As opposed to all your pure, uncomplicated friendships?
Adam: Hey, we are not talking about me right now.
Chelsea: I see. Okay. So you’re allowed to put my life under a microscope, but I can’t comment on yours.
Adam: Look, I finally got my dream job. And it seems like you are on the verge of blowing up your career, so you’re the priority. Maybe I can help you repair the partnership with chloe.
Chelsea: I don’t know what else to do with her. I’ve told her not to worry. I told her the work will get done. It always does. But she’s acting like this is her first lap around the track. It’s been brutal.
Adam: Well, then maybe you’re just gonna have to suck it up and deal with it.
Chelsea: Not necessarily. I got another offer.
Adam: [ Clears throat ] From who?
Chelsea: Well, it’s not public knowledge yet, so keep this between us, but kyle and summer asked me to design for marchetti. Jabot is acquiring the label.
Adam: That’s — that’s a big deal.
Chelsea: I know. Angelina is retiring. Every designer on earth would kill to take over her position, and they picked me.
Chelsea: Thank you. If I do the marchetti job, though, I have to do it on my own. Chloe doesn’t want to take it on. She thinks it’s too big of a deal, that we can’t handle it. But I just think it will help my creativity, you know? I mean, I’ve been scattered lately. This could really ground me. And I can handle it.
Adam: Chelsea, I have known you for a long time. And, honestly, I don’t think that you can.
Victoria: Second thoughts?
Ashland: [ Sighs ]
Victoria: No, no, no. I’m just a little tired. I didn’t sleep very well last night. I guess it’s all the excitement from launching our own company.
Victoria: And now that you told me about this new building in tribeca, I’m even more excited. I love the idea of being downtown.
Ashland: And we’ll save millions not having to upgrade. You know, when I saw this place, I thought to myself, “hand of destiny.”
Victoria: Well, when do I get to see it?
Ashland: Oh, well, I’m actually having a face-to-face with the current owners later today, so…
Victoria: Oh, my gosh. Well, we have to make sure everything’s in place.
Victoria: I mean, if this opportunity is as good as you say it is, we need to move quickly. It won’t last long.
Ashland: You’re absolutely right.
Victoria: I hired an attorney to handle the articles of incorporation. We need to be official if we’re gonna make an offer on the place.
Victoria: Uh, also — oh, gosh — in order to file the paperwork, we’re gonna need a name, and we haven’t even thought of anything yet.
Ashland: Okay, how about “anything but newman” incorporated?
Victoria: Ooh, catchy! But I think — honestly, I think we should leave our names out of it.
Ashland: I like “catchy.” How about catchy media?
Victoria: My goodness. I thought you would be better at this. Your previous corporation was named after a 3,000-year-old babylonian king.
Ashland: Excuse me. I had months to come up with that, not five minutes.
Victoria: Okay, fine. What was that phrase that you used about the building?
Ashland: “Save millions.”
Victoria: [ Laughs ] No. “Hand of destiny.”
Ashland: “Destiny.” Destiny media. I love that. And I love you.
Victoria: I love you. However, I will love you even more once we get this paperwork done.
Ashland: Well, what else is there to do?
Victoria: My lawyer opened up a corporate account. I’ve already put in my $250 million, but I think the full amount should be in there before you meet with the building seller.
Ashland: Yeah. Yeah. I think you’re right. That way they’ll be able to verify that we have sufficient funds.
Victoria: Yes. Okay. So, you should just make your contribution as soon as possible.
Ashland: Send me the information.
Victoria: Oh, my gosh.
[ Sighs ] You have no idea how badly I want this.
Ashland: Me too. This is all I’ve ever hoped for.
[ Breathes deeply ]
Nick: So, let me know if you hear from vick.
Victor: You do the same, okay?
Nick: I’m gonna get a refill.
Victor: So, my baby, i understand from michael baldwin that you’re trying to find some dirt on diane jenkins.
Nikki: That’s right.
Victor: Okay. Wish you’d have come to me first.
Nikki: So that you could have tried to talk me out of it?
Victor: No, that’s not what I’m talking about. I don’t want michael baldwin to split his focus. He’s been very helpful in throwing up roadblocks to victoria and ashland’s plan.
Nikki: Well, he hasn’t done anything to bring her back to us so far.
Victor: Well, sweetheart, be patient, okay? I know this will work out, sooner than anyone expects.
Sharon: Any more news on victoria?
Nick: That is the question of the day. Um, I did hear from her just before the last time I talked to you.
Sharon: Oh. Well, that must be a relief. But why didn’t you mention it then? And why don’t you look happier that she’s gotten back in contact?
Nick: Well, it seems she has changed her mind. When I talked to her, she told me about her — thank you so much — her, uh, plans to have investors put some money into her and ashland’s new company.
Sharon: I didn’t know they were starting a new business together.
Nick: Me either. So, at that moment, instead of wanting to remain neutral and be supportive of my sister, all i wanted to do was do anything i could to get her away from that lying bastard.
Sharon: So, what did you do?
Nick: I, uh — I just went and told my dad everything she told me.
Sharon: Okay. And let me guess. He did everything he could to shut down victoria and ashland’s new venture.
Nick: He used his influence to make sure no investors went anywhere near ashland and victoria.
Sharon: Mm. But that’s what you wanted, isn’t it?
Nick: I don’t know. I don’t know if I did the right thing.
Sharon: Don’t beat yourself up about this. Victoria put you in a difficult position, which — why would she do that?
Ashland: Wow. This is really happening.
Victoria: I know. And not a moment too soon if this building is as perfect as you say that it is.
Ashland: I can’t wait for you to see it.
Victoria: So, my lawyer set up the account, so we’ll both have direct access to the funds so we can easily get this massive undertaking off the ground.
Ashland: I think funding the company ourselves was the right move, by the way. You were spot on with that. I mean, that gives us complete autonomy to do whatever we want, which is how I’ve always preferred to work, so…
Victoria: Well, the way that I look at it, the investors passing was just part of our new company’s destiny.
Ashland: I see what you did there. That was lovely. Well done.
[ Laughs ]
Victoria: So, I sent you the account information so that we can take the next step.
Ashland: Let me see. Got it.
Victoria: [ Laughs ]
Ashland: I’ll start the process.
Victoria: Alright. Once this transfer goes through, we will be a united force to be reckoned with. And we won’t have to answer to my father, my brothers, my mother. You know, at one point, each one of them has second-guessed me, but not anymore. We’re on our own, and I am gonna prove to them that I can call the shots without them hovering over me constantly. This is my statement of a lifetime.
[ Laughs ]
Chloe: Look, I — i appreciate you trying to help, but I can’t sit here and let you bash chelsea.
Sally: No, it’s — it’s not like that at all. I am in a really good place right now. And I have zero animosity towards chelsea. In fact, I would really like us all to be friends. But I saw you two arguing in here awhile back, and I was shocked.
Chloe: Friends argue. And so do business partners.
Sally: Yeah, but not like that. It was a blow-up, chloe, and i could tell that there was something major going on.
Chloe: You know, um… chelsea has been hit really hard by the death of rey rosales. They got really close this past year.
Sally: Even though she tried to poison him?
Chloe: There were some extenuating circumstances. Rey forgave her. And then he was gone. And since then, she’s just been scattered and contentious, and it’s — it’s just been really difficult.
Sally: You’re a good friend, giving her the benefit of the doubt. But I know the whole reason that you recruited me for the fashion platform was because chelsea was unavailable due to her struggles.
Chloe: She’d gotten past all of her issues.
Sally: Had she? Or was she just covering them up with you? Because she’s always treated me like I was a threat, and I don’t know if it’s because of our friendship or because of my involvement with adam…or both.
Chloe: Try seeing it from her point of her view. She gets herself together, she comes back to town hoping to pick where she left off —
Sally: And she feels like i took her place, even though she should have realized that she burned every possible bridge with adam.
Chloe: It’s just been tough on her, realizing that even though she was back to her old self, she — she still had to live with the consequences of what she did when she wasn’t in her right mind. And it’s just one of the reasons why rey meant so much to her. His forgiveness paved the way for all the others in town to give her a second chance. And then he dies. She’s — ah, she’s just been really emotional.
Sally: I get it. A loss like that can affect everything. It can put strain on any friendship, even one as close as yours. It’s not fair to you.
Chloe: I never said that.
Sally: Well, you didn’t have to. I’ve witnessed it. You have been the driving force behind this whole renewed collaboration with chelsea. I just don’t think chelsea appreciates what good a friend you’ve been. And the fact that your partnership is going through this difficult phase is not your fault. You’ve done everything right.
Chloe: All I know is that i am going to continue to support my best friend. She’s just going through a really hard time right now.
Sally: Yeah. I hope that’s all that it is… and that chelsea appreciates you. I know what it’s like to screw up a good thing. And I’ve made it hard on people around me. But I also know that it’s a losing proposition to try and fix someone. But maybe this is different. I really hope it all works out for you. And I wish you the best.
Adam: Chelsea, I know how hard you work. You are great at what you do. But this marchetti thing right now is too much. It’s like you’re latching onto something to fill a void.
Chelsea: No. I love creating beautiful things. Designing brings me joy. That’s where I should be spending my energy.
Adam: Yeah, but not if you’re using it as a crutch. Chelsea, I know what you’ve been through in the last year. When you came back to town, you were positive, you were looking forward, and now it seems like you’re backsliding.
Chelsea: That’s not true!
Adam: You’re getting caught up in petty grievances. You’re getting upset with connor’s camp people because they’re just trying to do their job.
Chelsea: Oh, come on! That’s a one-time frustration.
Adam: Is it? What about this argument with chloe? I mean, maybe she’s not trying to manage you. Maybe you are just not showing up how she is expecting you to.
Chelsea: Wow. Wow. I didn’t realize I was such a basket case. I’m so glad I stopped by to be criticized by mr. Perfect.
Adam: I am not saying that, okay? I’m not judging you, chelsea. I’m just telling you what I have noticed from the outside. Ever since rey died, you have not been yourself.
Chelsea: Yeah, adam, it’s been hard.
Adam: Which makes me wonder, why do you even want to take the marchetti job right now anyway? It’s like you’re trying to steady your personal life by taking on more work.
Chelsea: Like you’ve never done that?
Adam: Chelsea, I do it all the time, which is why I notice it when I see it. And it never works. You can’t avoid what is bothering you. Eventually, you have to deal with it. ‘Cause what you’re doing now is not sustainable.
Nikki: I’m starting to think it doesn’t matter how much michael’s attention is split because he’s gonna drag his feet finding any information on diane no matter what.
Victor: Sweetheart, you shouldn’t worry about any of this. You know you’re concerned enough as it is with victoria.
Nikki: You’re right. I am. But I don’t understand how you can be so calm regarding victoria and ashland’s situation.
Victor: Well, you know… trust victoria the way you trust me.
Ashland: I can’t even describe what this means to me. You had every reason to never trust me again, to abandon me, and yet here we are, about to renew our commitment to each other.
Victoria: It’s what we both want.
Ashland: It just wasn’t that long ago that I thought this was impossible. Listen, I know… I know you were thinking about leaving genoa city to liberate yourself from your parents, and you could have easily done that on your own, without me. But you chose to follow your heart. And I understand that you want to be cautious, and we will take this at whatever pace makes you feel comfortable. But I need you to know that this makes me so damn happy that we’re doing this together. And I will never, ever give you a reason to doubt me again.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ]
Victoria: It’s a — it’s a new beginning for us.
Ashland: [ Laughs ]
Victoria: We’re starting on a new journey.
Ashland: [ Sighs ]
Victoria: And, um, I love thinking about the possibilities, especially with this new building that you found. It’s the next step in our big adventure.
Ashland: We should celebrate tonight.
Victoria: Oh, yes. Let’s do that. Caviar, champagne, the works.
Ashland: I love the sound of that, but first — first let me go ahead and transfer, uh, my funds into our joint account — right? — Merging our fortunes to secure our future.
[Sfx: Stomach gurgling]
“The young and the restless”
Sally: Hi. What are you doing here?
Adam: Um, I came to see you.
Sally: In an official capacity or otherwise?
Adam: Um, a little bit of both.
Sally: Well, that’s my favorite. They’re beautiful!
Adam: Looks like someone has a secret admirer.
Sally: “Shine brightly, kick some ass, and know that I have your back. The best is yet to come. Love, adam.”
Nick: You know, I’ve been wondering the same thing — why would victoria confide in me? She told me some very sensitive things. I’m just starting to think that maybe it was a test of loyalty.
Sharon: Well, if it was, you failed.
[ Both laugh ]
Nick: Yeah. It could also just be some convoluted game vick’s playing with dad.
Sharon: You think she wanted you to go to victor with the information?
Nick: I don’t know. But it was my choice. Vick knows I’m not happy about this and I’ll do anything I can to make sure she doesn’t get in any deeper with ashland.
Sharon: And she knows that going to victor is the best way to do that.
Nick: See, I had a feeling dad would be up to something, and if that’s the case, then I’m an unwitting accomplice to one of their plans. I’m either dad or victoria’s pawn.
Sharon: Well, look at the bright side. This may be a way of getting victoria to come back. I know your dad installed adam as ceo to drive her so crazy that she would come home, and that didn’t seem to work. So maybe this will.
Nick: Well, my fear is, if vick does change her mind and comes back, then my involvement in this will undermine any of the goodwill I re-established before victoria left town.
Sharon: She’s still your sister, nick. It may take a little while before things get back to where they were, but she’ll come around.
Nick: Yeah, but I just don’t have much influence on the family dynamic these days because I don’t have any skin in the game.
Sharon: And we talked about this. That’s because you walked away from the company.
Nick: Yeah. I did that ’cause I didn’t like all the lies and manipulating. But like it or not, this is the arena that my family operates in. And if I was still involved in the company, then, you know, i could have more impact on things like this and it could turn out differently.
Sharon: Are you still second-guessing your decision to leave newman?
Nick: It’s hard not to. I know you don’t think I should jump back into the viper’s nest.
Sharon: No, I never said that. I only tried to encourage you to think carefully about what you really want.
Nick: It’s just getting harder and harder to watch from the sidelines as my family deals with all these power struggles.
Sharon: So, what are you going to do?
Nick: I don’t know. Right now, the only thing I care about is victoria and making sure she gets through this okay.
Victoria: I love it. I love the photos. I love the blueprints of the building. I want to see it in person. I think it’s the perfect location for destiny media.
Ashland: Then why don’t you come with me right now to see it?
Victoria: [ Sighs ] I have to meet with the lawyer. Why don’t you arrange a walk-through with the management company and then we’ll meet back later and we’ll see the building together?
Ashland: Well, that’s very smart. We don’t want to appear too eager, but we should be ready to seize the inside track, assuming you agree with me after you’ve seen the place.
Victor: “Decisive” is our operative word.
[ Both laugh ]
Ashland: I’m the happiest man in the world right now.
Victoria: I’m the happiest woman.
Ashland: I’ll be back soon, hmm?
Victoria: [ Breathes deeply ] We’re eating and drinking foods and beverages
Victoria: [ Exhales sharply ]
Nikki: Victor, I know you are a master of playing things close to the vest, but something is going on. You are too calm. I mean, it’s almost as if you know your plan is already working.
Victor: I certainly hope it is, yeah.
Nikki: Has victoria given you any indication that your installing adam as ceo is going to push her to come back?
Victor: No, baby. I am telling you what I told nicholas. If I had heard something, i would have told you about it, okay?
Nikki: Well, I’ll say this. The longer that adam is sitting in that ceo perch, the more difficult it will be for victoria to reclaim her position.
Victor: Well, then victoria better hurry up, right?
Nikki: Are you really comfortable just yanking him out of the seat and putting her in? I mean, have you even thought that far ahead? Of course you have. I mean, this is precisely the kind of thing you sit around thinking about. So, can this plan work?
Sally: I love these. And the thoughtful card.
Adam: Well, I thought the sentiment rang true.
Sally: It did. We will always have each other’s back. And you used the l-word. That was nice.
Adam: I didn’t put too much pre-meditated thought into that note. It was very instinctual.
Sally: Well, you have excellent instincts.
Adam: Well, so do you. And that is something that, um, I want to tap into right now.
Sally: You want to tap into my instincts? Is that what you said?
Adam: That is right.
Sally: Okay. Just want to make sure we’re on the same page.
Adam: [ Chuckling ] Okay. Right now, I have to focus. Um…I have a problem. I’m saddled with a coo who has no interest in my vision, much less helping me realize it. I’ve come up with an idea that i think can impress the hell out of my father.
Sally: But you need to act on it quickly.
Adam: Exactly. ‘Cause every day that goes by, victoria’s closer to imploding her life and running back to daddy. So I need to move quick, and i need to show him that I’M…
Adam: Exactly. Now, I’ve been focused a lot on the media division, obviously, but now that I know it’s in the very best of hands…
Sally: Oh. You mean…these hands?
Adam: [ Sighs ] You’re very distracting.
Sally: Right. Yes. Proceed.
Adam: There are a couple areas of the company, some direct-to-consumer areas that could be shored up. And I’ve done some research. There is a major retailer that is having trouble meeting their working capital in the southwest. I think we should move in and take over operations and replace their location with stores under our brand. What do you think?
Sally: I think it’s a solid idea, but…
Adam: But what?
Sally: It just sounds like an idea that victor would have. You told me to always be honest.
Adam: I did. I did. Um… I appreciate that.
Sally: If you want to make a splash, you might have to do something different. Victoria has already done the victor junior thing. It might have worked for her. But you need to be adam. Surprise your father and set the business world buzzing. Retail in the southwest is nice, but it’s something that you should do whenever your ceo job is a little bit more secure. I really don’t think it’s gonna have the impact that you’re looking for. You need to show them that you’re not a placeholder, that running this company is what you are meant to do. You’re the real deal. So shoot for the stars. And the moon. Hell, buy the moon. That would get people’s attention.
Adam: [ Chuckles ] You’re so sexy when you’re like this.
Sally: [ Chuckles ] (Becky) I started smoking when I was 16.
Adam: I was thinking — maybe, um, you could just be ceo of newman media and coo of newman enterprises because I’m never gonna get this kind of advice from nikki.
Sally: Well, I should hope not. But I think you’re stuck with her. But I have every confidence that you will come up with something spectacular to make people see newman in a whole new light. Speaking of coos… I have an idea… about who should be mine.
Adam: Really? Is it anyone I know?
Sally: Yes. Chloe.
Adam: [ Laughs ] Uh, I don’t think that’s going to work.
Sally: Why not?
Adam: [ Clears throat ] Well, first of all, she’s tied up in the, uh — the fenmore deal.
Sally: Yeah, well, I just had a talk with her, and it seems like chelsea is getting on her nerves, so I think their partnership might be on its last leg.
Adam: I met with chelsea earlier, and I don’t disagree with you, but chloe has no relevant experience.
Sally: Yeah, but neither did I. It didn’t stop you from hiring me. Look, besides, chloe and i worked well together before. She gets the job done, she is an effective manager, and I think she would be great for the job. I would love to make some overtures to see if I can lure her over here.
Sally: Do you have any more objections?
Adam: Yeah, just one. She absolutely, completely hates me with every fiber of her being.
Chelsea: I’m late. I know. I had to drop off this permission slip thing for connor, and adam and I just started talking.
Chloe: Oh, yeah, yeah, no worries. Yeah, I got your messages keeping me updated. Oh. I’m sorry. That’s right. You never sent me any texts. I’ve just been sitting here waiting.
Chelsea: Well, after the way things went yesterday, can you blame me for not being super eager to over-communicate with you?
Chloe: Well, that’s all the more reason why you should have kept me updated — so the tension between us doesn’t get any worse.
Chelsea: Okay. Well, I’m here now. So let’s get to work.
Chloe: Okay. Actually…no. It was really inconsiderate of you, chelsea, and this is not the first time. I have had it. This isn’t working.
