Young & The Restless Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Nick: I searched everywhere. Ashland didn’t just stumble off into some other room. There’s no trail of blood for us to see where he went.
Victoria: This just makes no sense.
Nick: I saw him fall and hit his head. I checked him. He wasn’t breathing.
Victoria: We both checked his pulse. I mean, I tried to revive him. How is it possible that we’re wrong?
Nick: I think we have to assume that ashland’s alive and that he made it outside and that he got away somehow.
Summer: [ Sighs ] Thanks for suggesting coming here. Part of me just wanted to stay at home and watch harrison sleep after the bullet we dodged with ashland today.
Kyle: Me too. But he’s safe and sound, thanks in part to my mom.
Summer: She showed up for us big time.
Kyle: Mm. And I wanted us to have a little alone time so I can thank you for being such a great stepmom and wife.
Summer: And now business partner.
Kyle: Oh! How could I forget? I think we should toast to that.
Summer: I think so, too. Well, well, well, would you look at that? My brother and your…
Summer: Right. Would you mind if we went over there? I know that it’s our date night, but I haven’t caught up with noah in forever.
Kyle: I think you just want to spy on the new romance.
Summer: I have no idea what you’re talking about.
Kyle: Don’t get me wrong, I’m on board. I haven’t had a chance to talk to allie, which is kind of embarrassing because we live in the same house, so let’s do it.
Kyle: Hey, guys. Looks like you had the same idea on how to spend your evening.
Noah: Hey, how’s it going?
Allie: Look at you two out and about.
Summer: Seems like you’re settling into your newly adopted city.
Allie: Yeah, well, I have a pretty great tour guide.
Sharon: You look like you are mulling something over. Can I get you something to drink while you’re doing that?
Adam: Sure. Thank you. How — how you doing?
Sharon: Oh, I’m hanging in there. You know, some days are better than others, but I think I’m doing as well as can be expected. How are you?
Adam: I’m okay, you know? Connor is away at camp, and I have decided to move off the ranch for the time being. I’m taking up a room at the grand phoenix.
Sharon: Oh, yeah, I heard about the personnel changes at newman enterprises. Might that be the reason for your move?
Adam: Personnel change? You mean victoria’s return, nick’s rise, and my fall?
Sharon: You know, I have to admit, I was a little surprised that nick decided to go back to the company, but I knew he spent a lot of time thinking it through before he agreed.
Adam: Really? I always thought he was the “go on instinct” kind of guy.
Sharon: Well, to be fair, you both act on reflexes sometimes. Nick told me that you turned down the ceo position at newman media. Might that have been an impetuous decision?
Adam: [ Chuckles ] That was well played. I walked right into that one. But, no, my decision was a calculated, yet defiant declaration of independence from my father.
Sharon: I see. So once you cool down, maybe you’ll change your mind.
Adam: It’s like I’m saying the words, but you’re not hearing them.
Sharon: [ Laughs ] Sorry. It just does seem like a little bit of a knee-jerk reaction, but only because I know how much building newman media into a successful company meant to you.
Adam: Yes, I did build it up, and my family rewarded me by using me and kicking me back to the curb again once victoria, the anointed, reappeared. I have tried for the last time to be a part of the inner circle, but they will not allow it and I don’t want it. I have finally cut ties with victor.
Nick: There’s no sign of him back there.
Victoria: He must’ve —
[ Sighs ] I don’t know, he got up and left. There’s no other explanation.
Nick: He had no pulse.
Victoria: Maybe we were wrong about that. Maybe there was a pulse, but it was just too faint, so we didn’t detect it. But obviously, ashland is alive because he walked away. That’s — there’s no other explanation, nick. I mean, the good news is you didn’t kill him.
[ Door closes ]
Victor: Are you alright?
Victoria: Dad, what are you doing here?

[ Laughter ]
Kyle: I think we’ve earned ourselves a cocktail. I’ll grab us drinks, okay?
Noah: I’ll go with you.
Summer: Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa. Not so fast. Why don’t you sit here with me? I haven’t had a chance to catch up with noah since mariah and tessa’s wedding.
Kyle: Oh. Want to carry drinks with me?
Kyle: Let’s go.
Noah: So what?
Summer: So what’s with that smirk?
Noah: Oh, come on, you live with allie. You can’t be blind to her charms.
Summer: And apparently, she’s not blind to yours either.
Noah: [ Chuckles ]
Kyle: This is perfect, ’cause I was hoping to grab a moment alone with you. Not for any specific reason. I’ve just been busy moving my family back from genoa city and this new gig with marchetti. I haven’t had a chance to get to know you better, and I’d like to.
Noah: I like that, too. And I totally get why you’re busy with work and family, especially diane.
Kyle: Ah, you’re not one for small talk.
Allie: I just figured we have spent so much of our lives not knowing that each other existed, that why not just cut straight to the meaty part, right? Unless I offended you in any way.
Kyle: No, not at all. I appreciate the directness. It’s a nice change of pace. So, are you one of the people who is angry with my mother?
Allie: I am team undecided. Look, she used me to get to jack, and that was upsetting. But then she has also just been nice to me ever since. I will say this, though. She does have a lot of enemies in town.
Kyle: She has done more than a few questionable things.
Allie: And there are people who are willing to try to forgive her, and there are others who want.
Kyle: That’s right.
Allie: You know, there is a lot of curiosity about where my sympathies lie.
Allie: Oh, yeah.
Kyle: Sorry you got caught up in that.
Allie: It’s fine. I’m not too worried about it. I’m pretty good at steering myself away from trouble, and I’m pretty motivated to do that these days. For the first time in a long time, my future’s looking pretty bright.
Kyle: Noah have something to do with that?
Allie: Perhaps. Hey, I do have one other question for you.
Allie: Is being and abbott as perfect as it appears to be?
Victoria: Dad, how did you know to come here?
Victor: I had a security detail following you ever since I learned that ashland locke was back in town.
Victoria: Yeah, I know. I’ve seen them.
Victor: They were discreetly stationed in a car outside the house tonight.
Nick: Did they see ashland? Is he alive?
Chance: Hey. Got here as soon as I could.
Chance: What happened with ashland? Is everyone okay?
Sharon: I didn’t mean to doubt your intentions. What I meant was I’ve seen you go down this road before a few times, and you never get very far.
Adam: Well, I assure you that this time is different.
Sharon: Hey, if this really is you making a clean break from victor, I applaud it.
Adam: And yet you support nick rejoining the family fold?
Sharon: Well, you and nick are very different.
Adam: Ah. [ Chuckles ] I’m gonna take that as a compliment. Look, I know that you have always thought that I needed to define myself in a way that is separate from my father.
Sharon: Yes, that’s because the tortured dynamic between the two of you is responsible for your worst tendencies and actions. I mean, you’re either trying to prove something to him or you’re punishing him for some perceived wrongdoing.
Adam: Yeah, you’re right. That’s why the only way for me to truly be free is to make a clean break, because trying to prove myself under the newman umbrella, under victor’s control, is impossible. As much as he says he’s gonna give me a autonomy, it just isn’t true. He just wants to be able to take back the reins whenever it suits him.
Sharon: I get that. And I agree. But this last go-round at newman media, I mean, the last few months, I have seen some glimpses of the good man that I know you to be at your core. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but… maybe sally had some influence on you and maybe she helped get you there? Hi, I’m denise.
Victoria: Ashland showed up at the house earlier uninvited.
Chance: I heard that you two had split. I don’t know much of the specific details, but we don’t have to get into that right now. Why don’t you just walk me through what happened here tonight?
Victoria: I recently made it clear to ashland that — that I wanted nothing more to do with him going forward. And obviously, ashland had a hard time accepting that. He showed up at the house, the back door, wanting to talk. I let him come in so he could say his piece. And he started rambling. He said some — some pretty awful things to me.
[ Sighs ] And when I insisted that there was no future for the two of us, he — he just grew more agitated.
Chance: Take a minute if you need to.
Victoria: No, I’m fine. At one point, he grabbed me, and that’s when I knew that he was gonna hurt me.
Chance: Did he hurt you?
Victoria: No, I was able to get away from him, and that’s when nicholas showed up. Thank god. Because I knew at that point — I knew that ashland was gonna kill me.
Adam: Well, you might as well hear this from me since it’ll be public knowledge soon enough. But sally and i have ended our relationship.
Sharon: Oh, wow. Well, I’m sorry to hear that.
Adam: You are? I mean, I didn’t peg you as a member of the sally spectra fan club.
Sharon: Well, I definitely wasn’t, and she and i certainly are not friends. But, you know, she seemed to care about you. I mean, she supported you extricating yourself from your complicated family dynamic. And I don’t know, she seemed to get you and vice versa.
Adam: But you just said you didn’t know that well, so what makes you think that?
Sharon: Actually, sally came to see me a while ago to talk to me about you.
Adam: I’m — I’m sorry, sharon. She should not have done that.
Sharon: Yeah, I was pretty suspicious at first, but ultimately, I became convinced that she did it because she cares about you.
Adam: Well, the truth is that sally and i were holding each other back.
Adam: How was she holding you back?
Adam: She wasn’t exactly a popular choice with certain people.
Sharon: Well, you know, you can be an acquired taste yourself sometimes.
Adam: Hmm. Point taken. But it just — it just got too complicated.
Adam: Okay, well, you said that you don’t care about what victor thinks or nick or victoria, so it can’t be that.
Adam: There were a lot of other factors, and I just — I really don’t want to get into the details.
Sharon: Hey, it’s me you’re talking to — the person that you can be honest with, and I can be honest with you. You know, you were the first person I was able to reveal the full extent of my grief to when rey died. I really am grateful for that, and I’d like to return the favor.
Adam: Maybe I wanted to let her fly without me holding her back. I was setting her free so she could soar, okay? You, of all people, should know that I can be a debilitating weight, you know? Albatross around the neck of anyone who cares about me.
Sharon: [ Chuckles ] Okay. I’m sure you hurt her, but I don’t believe all that. Come on.
Sally: You were lying to me. I knew it. I could sense it in my soul. You think you’re doing me a favor, but it is a favor that I don’t want. All I want is to be with you. I mean, you’re barely older than okay, being an abbott definitely has its upsides,
Kyle: [ Laughs ] Okay, being an abbott definitely has its upsides, but it can still be a roller coaster, and you’ll figure that out if you stick around, which I hope you will.
Allie: Yeah, it’s looking more and more likely.
Kyle: I’m sorry I never got to know your dad, my brother.
Allie: Yeah, the fact that he is your brother, it’s weird. I mean, you’re barely older than I am.
Kyle: Learning you had a whole new family that you never knew existed, it must have been bizarre for you.
Allie: Yeah. Yeah. And I really wasn’t sure if I’d have a relationship with any of you, but from the very first moment I met jack, he has been nothing but wonderful. And then there’s traci, abby, billy — they’ve all been so warm and so welcoming.
Kyle: [ Chuckles ]
Allie: But I knew ashley was skeptical of me at first.
[ Chuckles ] But I feel like she has really come to trust and accept me as part of the family.
Kyle: Yeah, she can be tough and protective.
Allie: Oh, yeah.
Kyle: Just like most of the women in the family. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Allie: I agree, and I feel very lucky to be included in that group. Hey, I’m also thrilled to be joining jabot.
Allie: I’m sorry we’re just missing each other there.
Kyle: Well, I’m not going anywhere exactly. I’ll just be overseeing a new division, so I’ll still be there.
Allie: That’s true.
Kyle: I’m glad you found your place.
Allie: Yeah. Yeah, I am, too.
Noah: Why don’t you sit down? I want to talk to you about something.
Summer: Okay. What’s going on? You’re making me nervous.
Noah: I am leaving new hope.
Summer: What? Why? Wait, does this mean that you’re leaving genoa city? Like, seriously, as soon as i get back.
Noah: No, I’m not leaving town. I’m just leaving new hope.
Summer: Okay, phew. I got to be honest, I’m kind of not that surprised. I mean, this has always sort of felt like a stopgap for you. I’m sure dad’s gonna be disappointed, though.
Noah: I thought the same. I didn’t think he’d take it well, but we talked earlier, and he was surprisingly accepting. I know he wanted me to fill in over at new hope now that he’s back at newman, but he understood it just wasn’t the right fit for me.
Summer: Dad’s pretty good about putting his kids’ happiness first.
Noah: Yeah, we got lucky that way.
Summer: We did. You know, when I went over to milan, he flew over with me. He helped me get all settled in, even though I knew he did not want me to leave genoa city.
Noah: This might be a little too analytical, but, you know, maybe dad’s always been a little bit more hands-off because grandpa had such a heavy hand in his kids lives.
Summer: Yeah. Dad wants something different for us.
Chance: Okay. Do you think you can continue?
Nick: Maybe I’ll take the next bit. When I got here, ashland was in a total rage, acting like a crazy person. He was screaming at me to stay out of it, to just mind my own business, but obviously I wasn’t gonna leave my sister here alone with him, so I told her to go and call the police.
Victoria: That’s when I ran into the kitchen.
Nick: And he tried to go after her. Then I stopped him, you know, and it got physical. We were pushing each other and…
[ Sighs ] I socked him in the jaw, and then he fell down. He hit his head on the fireplace. I was yelling at him to get up, and he wouldn’t answer me, so I knelt down to check on him to find a pulse, and I couldn’t find one.
Victoria: That’s when I came back in from the other room and I saw him lying on the ground unconscious and he was bleeding. I checked his pulse too, and, um, I even tried to resuscitate him.
Nick: It all happened so fast, you know? All I wanted to do was protect my sister. But I’m telling you, ashland was completely out of control. But the idea that I may have taken someone’s life, even as someone as terrible as ashland, you know, it was really messing with me. So I needed to go outside and get some air, so I took off out the front, and victoria followed me, you know, just to make sure I was okay.
Victor: So obviously my son acted out of self-defense. Trying to protect his sister from this monster.
Chance: Well, based off everyone’s interpretations, I agree with you. I’m very sorry that this happened. I’m glad nick was here to intervene. But I do have a question. Where’s ashland now?
Victoria: Uh…well, the thing is…
Nick: We have no idea. After I was able to calm down and get my head right, we came back inside. He was gone. Ashland was just gone.
Sharon: I think I’m gonna leave you two alone to discuss things.
Adam: Yeah, I should probably go.
Sally: No, don’t even try. Okay. You can stop lying now. I just heard everything that you said to sharon. And I really don’t know whether to be furious with you or to wrap my arms around you and tell you that I love you because now I know that you still love me, too.
Adam: What are you talking about? I didn’t say anything about loving you.
Sally: Okay, you know, I’m not gonna let you get away with that. I just heard it with my own ears. You said that you were setting me free to let me soar. I don’t know why you have this idea in your head that you’re making some grand gesture so that I can keep my job, but it’s crazy.
Adam: No, I think you misunderstood what I was saying.
Sally: No, I did not. You keep telling me that you broke up with me so you could look better in victor’s eyes. That’s a lie. It’s a lie. You don’t care what victor thinks. I just heard you telling sharon as much.
Adam: Well, that’s because I was lying to sharon. I wasn’t lying to you.
Sally: Why would you do that? Why wouldn’t you tell her the same thing that you told me if it’s the truth?
Adam: Because I care about sharon’s opinion, and I didn’t want her thinking that I still had issues with my father, so it was easier and it was cleaner to make her think that my actions were noble.
Sally: Still not buying it.
Adam: Look, sharon has intimate knowledge of my history, and I know that she was gonna tell me that I shouldn’t be affected by his influence. So it was easier to have a preemptive lie to avoid her judgment. Okay? You starting to get it now? I don’t know how much clearer I can be.
Sally: It just seems like you’re scrambling to come up with an explanation.
Adam: Yeah, because you keep following me around, listening in to all the conversations that I’m having, sally.
Sally: I’m not following you.
Adam: No, I think you are. And actually, it’s making you seem pathetic and it’s making you seem desperate.
“The young and the restless”
will continue. Need a cleanser that does more?
Sally: Can you really say that you don’t miss that? That you don’t miss us? I don’t care what your brother or your sister think of me and I don’t give a damn about victor’s opinions, so you can spin whatever story it is that you want about our breakup to me, to your family, or to sharon, and you can even lie to yourself, but that kiss — that was the truth. You love me as much as I love you. Why can’t you get that through you thick skull? I don’t care if I continue to work at newman media. It is just a job. What you and I have is so much more.
Adam: Stop it. Okay, just stop it. You’re making a fool out of yourself, okay? You can believe it or you can not believe it, sally, but we are done. You have no choice but to move on.
Chance: It’s a pretty sharp edge. If he hit this hard enough to draw that much blood, I’m sure he concussed himself.
Nick: That fall knocked him out. That’s why vick and I thought that he was dead.
Chance: Yeah, well, sometimes a pulse can be tough to find. I mean, the guy must have been alive. Bodies just don’t disappear like this. Still, if he was able to stumble out of here, especially after being knocked unconscious like that, he had to be weak and disoriented. You know, he’s a tough guy from making out of the house at all. Victoria, I got in the car and left right after you called me. So would you say that was about 15 minutes after all this?
Victor: What are you suggesting?
Summer: You definitely get the credit for putting a smile back on my brother’s face and for giving him a good reason to stay in town. Don’t tell anyone, but I kind of like having you around.
Noah: Yeah, I feel the same way, but if any of you say anything, I’ll deny it.
Kyle: [ Chuckles ]
Allie: I’m not the only reason that noah’s sticking around. Tell them, it’s exciting.
Noah: I have this new idea. I want to take the entire glam vibe from mariah and tessa’s wedding and open up a new nightclub. Heavy on the art, kind of a lounge-y vibe.
Summer: That sounds cool.
Kyle: Yeah. Genoa city could really use a place like that. When are you planning on getting it off the ground?
Noah: Well, I’m putting together a pitch for grandpa right now because I kind of want to transform the top of the tower.
Summer: I don’t mean to be a downer, but I think you might have just hit your first roadblock. We hit the bike trails every weekend
Noah: What, you got a problem with my plan already?
Summer: Yeah. A grandpa-shaped problem. I mean, he kind of likes having the top of the tower in the newman building. He uses it a lot. He uses it as sort of like a second office. I’m not sure he’s gonna go for turning it into a nightclub with a glam vibe.
Kyle: [ Chuckles ] I don’t think victor knows what glam vibe is.
Noah: I beg to differ, my friend. Have you seen pictures of him in the ’70s? Dude was a stud.
Kyle: I have.
Kyle: And I stand corrected. But he was less of a bowie and more of a burt reynolds.
Allie: Who’s burt reynolds?
Noah: Are you ser– okay. We have a movie marathon in our future.
[ Chuckles ]
Allie: Okay, well, I’ve only met your grandfather once, so I’m not an expert here, but from what I hear, he’s a really great businessman and great businessmen can see a great idea. Didn’t you guys have a ton of fun at the wedding?
Summer: Well, yeah, I mean, we had a great time, but unfortunately, grandpa wasn’t there to witness it. I just think you might have a hard time convincing him of this one. I hope I’m wrong, though, but… you know what? I think I might have another idea for you.
Noah: Oh, yeah, what’s that?
Summer: My mom’s hotel. There’s this amazing space on the top floor that would be kind of perfect for what you’re going for.
Noah: Huh. Yeah, I hadn’t really thought about the grand phoenix. I mean, it’s already an upscale destination.
Kyle: Actually might be a better fit for the vibe you’re going for.
Summer: Ooh, ooh, if you could get it ready in time, maybe we could host marchetti’s winter fashion show there.
Noah: Okay, thank you for the idea, but let me think on it for a little bit, okay? I know, and I’m kind of dead set on transforming the top of the tower already, but if it doesn’t work with grandpa, I promise I’ll keep you in mind.
Summer: Okay. Sounds good. But let’s raise a toast. To new possibilities.
Allie: Hear, hear.
Noah: Hear, hear.
Sally: Thank you.
Sharon: Are you okay?
Sally: No, I’M…not.
Sharon: Do you want to talk about it?
Sally: Yeah. Yeah, I think I do. I always pride myself on knowing what’s what, on being able to read people. That’s like my thing. But, I mean, adam’s latest moves have my head spinning, and I just don’t know what to believe.
Sharon: Do you mind if I ask what happened between the two of you?
Sally: He claimed that he lost everything because of me, that being with me tainted his image in his father’s eyes. But then I just heard him telling you the exact opposite thing, which is exactly what I assumed all along, that he just broke up with me out of some favor to me and my career. But then when I confronted him about it, he told me that he was lying to you so you didn’t think badly of him. And now I just — my head is spinning and I have whiplash.
Sharon: Well, sometimes adam, he can be hard to understand.
Sally: The last time I came to you for insight on adam’s relationship with victor, you were really helpful. So can I ask you this? Am I fooling myself? Because honestly, I thought I knew adam, but now I just don’t know.
Sharon: I don’t know for sure what’s going on with adam, but as far as the differing stories, I agree that’s confusing, but I’m guessing the truth is somewhere in the middle.
Sally: How so?
Sharon: Well, he just got through telling me that he’s done with his father forever, which I find very hard to believe. But I can accept that he might feel that he needs to step away. And that will give you a chance to prove yourself at newman media without your relationship with him tainting people’s perception of you.
Sally: Well, I mean, if that’s the truth — and I want to believe that it is — shouldn’t that be my call? My battle to fight? Because despite what people think, adam has never influenced things for me. He always let me prove myself in my own way. So why is he suddenly doubting my ability to do that?
Sharon: I can’t speak to that. But I do know that it is a newman trait to think you’re doing right by protecting people even when they haven’t asked for protection. Much like what happened with victoria. Everyone moved in to save her from ashland.
Sally: Well, if adam is wounding me in some misguided attempt to help me, then I think I can forgive him. But I just don’t know how to get through to him so we can find our way past it. How can I stop him from being so damn noble and just go back to loving me again?
Chance: I’m here to help. And the best way that I can do that is to know precisely what happened here. Now, I’m asking questions based off what I’m seeing. Just trying to make sense of everything.
Victor: Now I’m taking orders in myself now. If you don’t mind my saying so, seemingly ashland still had a pulse because he walked out of here on his own.
Nick: And went where? I’m telling you, the condition he was in, he couldn’t have gotten far.
Chance: How about his car? Did you see it when you got here? No, it’s part of the reason why I was so surprised to find him here.
Victoria: He came in the back door, so maybe he’s parked out back or on a side street.
Chance: Okay, well, I’ll get some officers to search the area, keep an eye out for him on foot and for his vehicle.
Victoria: Thank you.
Chance: Again, victoria, I’m really sorry that this happened. I hadn’t realized things had deteriorated with him so much.
Victoria: I’m just grateful for your help now.
Nick: So what do we do next? I mean, should we tell summer and kyle that ashland’s around. He could go after harrison?
Victor: No, son, I think that’s not a good idea. I don’t think we should alarm them unnecessarily, you know? Besides that, harrison’s probably asleep at the abbotts’, and talking about that, why don’t you send a squad car over to that neighborhood and have them check it out, okay?
Chance: I can do that, but I wouldn’t worry. I doubt he makes it that far. If he’s smart, the first place he’s going is the hospital. I will find ashland. And when I do, would you like to press charges?
Victoria: Yes, I want him arrested and put away so nothing like this ever happens again. How did olay top expensive creams?
Sharon: I really wish there were an easy answer, but unfortunately, when it comes to adam, there often is not.
Sally: Yeah, learning that the hard way. But I still can’t help loving him.
Sharon: I think there is truth to the notion that your success at newman media was precarious at best as long as you were involved with him. You must know by now that victoria does not like or trust him.
Sally: You think? She doesn’t exactly hide her feelings.
Sharon: Well, it’s been that way for a long time, unfortunately.
Sally: Yeah, definitely picked up on some vibes by association from her.
Sharon: And now that he is back at the newman family business, nick will be part of the equation too. And there was a time when their relationship had cooled down, when adam had donated a kidney to my daughter faith, but they still have a complicated and tempestuous history. I think that nick wavers between tolerance and outright hatred for his brother.
Sally: I know that adam is a flawed and complicated guy. I just don’t understand why the family dynamics have to figure in so heavily into our relationship. I mean, why does victor and nikki and victoria and nick always have to be so intimately involved in every single thing?
Sharon: Because they’re newmans. They come as a package deal. I think maybe the important question here is how much do you value your job at newman media?
Sally: I have told adam over and over that it is not remotely as important to me as he is.
Sharon: Well, if that’s the case, you’ll just have to find a way to prove that to him.
Sally: Can you really say that you don’t miss that? That you don’t miss us?
Chance: Okay. I think I’m done here. I’m gonna get as many eyes as I can on the roads as soon as possible, start looking for this guy.
Chance: Before I go, is there anything else you need to tell me? Anything you might have forgotten, maybe left out? You see, in situations like this, no detail is too small.
Nick: Am I missing anything?
Victoria: I don’t think so.
Nick: We’re good.
Victor: I think we have covered all the salient facts of the evening.
Chance: Okay, well, I’ll contact you once I locate him.
Victor: Alright. Chance.
Nick: Alright, he’s gone. You want to tell us what really happened here tonight?
