Sally: No, it is nothing like that. I just — I learned something earlier. Adam was in here tonight, and I heard him talking with Sharon. I overheard him telling her what I had suspected all along. He admitted that the only reason he broke up with me was because he felt like it was best for me. He didn’t admit it to my face, but it’s a real motive behind him breaking things off.
Nick: Do you think we don’t know that already? And who cares? It shouldn’t change anything.
Sally: Yeah, but it does, because I’m not okay with him making that sacrifice.
Nick: Well, Adam doesn’t care what you think, obviously. He made this decision without consulting you, and he’s lying to you, and he’s continuing to lie to you.
Sally: It was a terrible, stupid mistake on Adam’s part, but I know he believes he’s doing the right thing.
Nick: You’re just making excuses for him, just like Sharon did and Chelsea and just like Victoria did for Ashland.
Sally: That is not what I’m doing.
Nick: Sally, what is wrong with you? You’ve got this incredible opportunity. It is right in front of your face. You just have to grab it. And you’re willing to throw it all away for this guy who stomped on your heart with both feet. Is this all the self-respect you have?
Sally: Why are you being so harsh? I bet this has more to do with what your sister just went through than it does with me. So please don’t put all your baggage on me. You don’t know me that well
Chloe: So, was I right about Adam earlier? Is he angry with you for staying on at Newman when he decided to quit? Is that why he broke up with you?
Sally: [Sighs] You have it backwards, Chloe. Adam broke up with me so that I can stay here. He knew that Victoria would never agree to keep me on as long as we were still together, that she could never trust me to somehow not be conspiring with him. So, he came up with some bogus story about not wanting to be with me because Victor wouldn’t approve.
Chloe: Oh, my god. That is just so hurtful.
Sally: I knew that that’s not how he really felt, which is exactly what you saw us arguing about earlier. And then tonight, I confirmed it. I overheard him admitting to Sharon that he only cut me loose so that our relationship wouldn’t get in the way of my job here at Newman Media.
Chloe: And let me guess, you confronted him right away.
Sally: Of course. I told him that this was a huge mistake and that he would regret it for the rest of his life, once I had moved on with someone else.
Chloe: Good for you.
Sally: But then I also
[Sighs] Told him that I didn’t want to get the job this way and that I would
[Inhaling deeply] Be turning in my resignation first thing in the morning.
Chloe: Okay. I — I’m not going to freak out right away, because I’m sure you just said that in the heat of the moment, and by now you’ve calmed down and realize that quitting would just be crazy right!
