Young & The Restless Transcript

Chloe: Thanks for meeting with us, nick, and we’re really excited to pitch you some of our ideas.
Nick: Yeah. Let’s — let’s see what you got.
Chloe: Okay. So last week we really started strategizing on how to create more synergy between the newman media divisions, mostly within the entertainment sector. And we’re also wondering if we might be able to converge entertainment and news by producing some topical talk shows that check both of those boxes.
Sally: We want to go big, and our entertainment- and news-oriented divisions are doing really well nationally, so we were thinking that it might be time to focus on expanding to an international audience.
Chloe: Yeah, and that would mean creating content targeting those markets — europe, asia, and south america.
Sally: And if you like any of these general ideas, we can always come back with a more detailed plan on how to execute them.
Chloe: Yeah, we know that it’s a bold direction, but we really believe in it. So what do you think?
Chelsea: I guess you handled whatever that text message was earlier that sent you off and running without explanation.
Adam: Yeah, it actually turned out to be good news. Something that I was hoping for finally paid off.
Chelsea: Well, it’s great when life takes a turn like that.
Adam: Yeah, it sure is.
Chelsea: Okay. I’m too tired to keep this up.
Adam: [ Sighs ] Same.
Chelsea: Alright, let’s just come clean. Who wants to go first?
Adam: [ Sighs ]
Jack: [ Humming ]
Traci: What has gotten into you?
Jack: What do you mean?
Traci: [ Chuckles ] You’re so happy.
Jack: Well, I’d like to think it’s not that rare or shocking that I have a smile on my face.
Traci: It’s not, but you’re smiling a lot more lately.
Jack: I didn’t know you were counting smiles.
Traci: And you are humming when you’re going through the mail.
Jack: I didn’t do that.
Traci: You did. And if I’m not mistaken, I overheard you singing with harrison.
Jack: That I will cop to. That kid can turn anyone’s mood around.
Traci: [ Chuckles ] So is it your grandson that’s got you so chipper, or is it something or someone else?
Diane: Hello, nikki.
Nikki: How are you, diane?
Diane: I’m — I’m fine. Thank you.
Nikki: Glad to hear it.
Diane: And you?
Nikki: I’m well. Keeping busy at newman enterprises. I spoke with summer recently. She says you’re doing a wonderful job at marchetti so far.
Diane: Is that right? Well, that’S…nice to hear.
[ Scoffs ] Is there a hidden pie about to smack me in the face or should I brace myself for something worse?
Talia: You neglected to tell me you own the place.
Phyllis: Oh, yes.
Talia: I’m impressed.
Phyllis: Hmm. I’m glad you’re enjoying your time here. Yeah, the grand phoenix, it was a labor of love, you know? Ah, there were a lot of ups and downs, but totally worth it. It’s coming to an end, I’m afraid. I just sold it.
Talia: You’re moving on. Why is that?
Phyllis: Well, I work at marchetti now.
Talia: Where diane jenkins works? Not a coincidence, I’m guessing. Is there an agenda there?
Phyllis: It’s pretty strategic. And completely justified. That’s why I wanted to talk to you. Want your clothes to smell freshly
provided by… breakthrough heartburn…
Nick: Well, I really like what I’ve heard. And speaking of synergy, you two obviously make a very strong team.
Sally: I couldn’t agree more.
Chloe: I’ll make it unanimous.
Nick: I’d like to hear more about your process.
Chloe: Yeah, we — we each bring our ideas to the table, and then we brainstorm, flesh them out together. But make no mistake, sally is our fearless leader.
Nick: I get it. Chloe, would you mind too much if I had a minute alone with the fearless leader?
Chloe: Oh, sure. I will make myself scarce. And if we get the go-ahead, I will start implementing these ideas right away.
Nick: Thank you, chloe.
Chloe: Thank you.
Nick: Sit down.
Sally: Is there a problem with our pitches that you didn’t want to mention in front of chloe?
Nick: No. I loved them, each and every one of them. I meant what I said. This is about you and adam.
Chelsea: So we agreed to tell each other what’s going on.
Adam: We did.
Chelsea: Go ahead.
Adam: [ Chuckles ] Ladies first.
Chelsea: Oh, oldest trick in the book. The first one to spill is always put at a disadvantage.
Adam: Are we taking advantage of each other now?
Chelsea: No. I guess we’re on neutral ground. God, you are so stubborn, you know that?
Adam: So I have been told.
Chelsea: Fine. I’ll go. I just recorded my final podcast episode with billy.
Adam: Ah. So a celebration is in order now that you dropped the dead weight?
Chelsea: I’m not continuing the podcast.
Adam: You didn’t take my suggestion that you should bring in a new co-host and someone who’s not a royal jerk?
Chelsea: Billy — who’s not a jerk, by the way — suggested the same thing. He even offered to help me find a new co-host.
Adam: Well, you are obviously so talented that even billy abbott can see it and he stands to make money from it. Doesn’t mean he’s not a jerk.
Chelsea: Well, I decided against it. This isn’t about billy. It’s about me.
Adam: Okay. Sorry. So, in other words, your career is in limbo.
Chelsea: Yeah. I just don’t understand why I can’t find something that I’m able to handle. Find something that doesn’t get yanked away from me before I settle in. You know, working for a global fashion icon like angelina marchetti was probably too much for me. I dove back into the fashion world too soon, but then I found something that excited me. Something that grounded me with this podcast. And then billy, he just quits on me.
Adam: Yeah, I can — I can relate. I mean, I feel like I had the perfect future at newman dangled in front of me more times than I can count, only to be yanked away. And frankly, I’m just — I’m exhausted.
Chelsea: Mm, I know you better than that. You may be tired at the moment, but you’re not defeated. And I’ve seen this before.
Adam: Seen what?
Chelsea: The look in your eye, the iciness in your tone. That’s pure rage.
Traci: You know, if you were a character in one of my novels, my editor would be insisting that I explain your mood.
Jack: I am not a character in one of your novels. I am your brother. And my moods don’t have to be explained or scrutinized or novelized for that point.
Traci: Come on, you would make a great character — leading man, romantic hero.
Jack: Don’t even think about it.
Traci: And you’re avoiding my original question.
Jack: Oh, I know what you’re fishing for, and I’m not biting.
Traci: Alright. Can’t blame a girl for trying.
Jack: You know what? I am thrilled that kyle and summer and harrison are back in town, great, exciting new things are happening at jabot, and my family is mercifully at peace. Does that perhaps satisfy your curiosity?
Traci: [ Chuckles ] Nobody would have believed that peaceful part of this a few months ago when diane first got in touch with you.
Jack: No, that’s true. Not long ago, I thought diane was only capable of causing trouble. But you know what? Kyle is healing. I can’t even believe I’m saying that, but it’s true. And for that, I am very grateful.
Jack: Is this you in the process of forgiving diane?
Nikki: You have a fear of flying pies. That’s funny.
Diane: [ Sighs ] I’d like to get the insults and attacks over with before your food is served. Who knows what else might get hurled across the table? And I’m wearing a new outfit.
Nikki: I am so glad I ordered the beet soup.
Diane: Ha ha.
Nikki: Oh, lighten up. I’m kidding.
Diane: [ Sighs ] So where is this seemingly laissez faire attitude coming from?
Nikki: I’ve just decided that it’s easier to ignore you than to engage. Although it is harder when you come up to my table.
Diane: Let’s be honest. If I hadn’t walked over here, you would have confronted me.
Nikki: Ah, wrong, as usual. You’re just not worth my energy. I have a very full life to live.
Diane: Oh, and I’m sure the constant upheaval at newman enterprises is keeping you very busy. At this point, are there any members of your family that haven’t been ceo?
Nikki: Well, that is so sweet of you to be concerned. But the company is thriving, so you need only be concerned about your workplace.
Diane: Oh. Oh, marchetti is doing great. Thanks in large part to my son’s leadership.
Nikki: Uh-huh. Well, I think my granddaughter had a little something to do with that as well.
Diane: Absolutely. Summer is a wonderful leader, and she’s been so good to me. I really appreciate that she’s kept an open mind and hasn’t just accepted all the things that you and phyllis have told her about me.
Nikki: Well, poor summer really shouldn’t have to deal with you at all, but I’m confident that you will self-sabotage and leave genoa city in disgrace without any help from me at all. Now, I will admit that in the beginning I felt the need to rush that process along. But you know what? It’s really not worth my time, because I know that you are capable of blowing up your life all on your own.
Diane: Wow. This new and enlightened version of you is almost cuddly. I’m curious, though. Phyllis seems to have made a turn as well, selling her beloved hotel to work at the same company as I do. Come on, nikki. You and phyllis might talk a good game about letting go, but something’s clearly afoot. Hi, I’m denise.
Talia: So does nikki know about your plan?
Phyllis: Oh, yeah. She’s in on it, for sure. You know, we’re keeping it on the down low. You have to be crafty when you deal with diane. You have to think on your feet. So that’s why I think in your case, you should just keep it to your cover story, you know, your piece on ashland locke.
Talia: So what exactly is going down with diane?
Phyllis: Well, what’s going to go down with diane is she’s going to get into trouble at her job. But it won’t be because of anything that I did. I mean, talia, she’s in way over her head. She’s going to run into trouble. She’s going to screw up and she’s going to get fired.
Diane: So what do you and phyllis have up your sleeve?
Nikki: Diane, you deluded narcissist, not everything is about you, dear. Did it ever cross your mind that phyllis simply wants to work with her daughter? Just as I love working with nicholas and victoria, and I assume you love working with kyle?
Diane: Mm-hmm, I could believe that, had I not witnessed how much phyllis loved owning that hotel.
Nikki: Mm. Well, she’s never really been very successful hanging on to anything. Careers, men.
Diane: Oh, insulting her. Very clever strategy.
Nikki: I’m sorry?
Diane: You’re hoping that if you say mean and nasty things about phyllis, it’ll convince me that you’re not working together.
Nikki: I am simply explaining to you why she wanted to work at marchetti, so you can forget about your conspiracy theory.
Diane: If there was truly nothing going on, you wouldn’t care what I thought.
Nikki: You know what, diane? I think all those years living in hiding have made you paranoid.
Diane: Now you’re deflecting, trying to get me on the defensive.
Nikki: I am merely expressing concern for your well-being.
Diane: Oh, come on. You being polite and considerate is the biggest red flag of all.
Nikki: Being civil is just easier. It’s less exhausting because everybody has grown bored with your drama and we’ve moved on.
Diane: My drama? You and phyllis are the drama queens of genoa city.
Nikki: Now, dear, unless you are planning a better exit than your murder turned out to be, you’re just going to have to accept the fact that the novelty of your very dramatic return has just worn off. You’re not the center of attention anymore. Nobody is really thinking about you at all. Although I almost wish I could be there when you finally realize that, because, really, how sad and pathetic will that be.
Jack: I’m not sure forgiveness is the right word. I’m — I’m not sure what is.
Traci: Well, what would forgiveness look like for you and diane?
Allie: Hey, you guys.
Noah: How’s it going?
Allie: Oh, my gosh. I am so glad you guys are both here. We have some great news.
Sally: What would you like to know?
Nick: Victoria told me about adam’s attempt to get you to publish evidence that he just happened upon regarding ashland’s death.
Sally: I know the truth about what went down that night. And I understand why you were so sick over it.
Nick: It was our goal to keep the circle of people who knew about it very small. But now, thanks to adam, you are burdened with that secret.
Sally: You don’t have to worry about me. When I want to keep my mouth shut, I am an impenetrable fortress. Not only am I not going to publish the story, I will never tell anyone about it, ever.
Nick: You’ve proven that you can be trusted.
Sally: Well, I’m sorry for how difficult things must have been. And still might be.
Nick: I just — you know, I did what I did because I was protecting my sister.
Sally: And I’m sure victoria is very grateful for what you did. Frankly, the town is breathing a heck of a lot easier without ashland around. And honestly, if your father hadn’t gotten involved and everyone found out, they would probably give you the key to the city or something.
Nick: No. I don’t know about that.
Sally: Well, in my experience, truly brave people are usually modest. I will say one thing about the newmans. You guys can be intimidating, but you really go to the mat for each other. Spending more time around your family, I understand less about adam’s attitude towards you all.
Nick: Sally, I just hope you know how genuinely appreciative I am that you turned adam down and that you went to victoria and gave her a heads up.
Sally: Well, there was never any risk of adam getting me to do his bidding. And as far as going to see victoria, you should all just be on guard about adam’s state of mind. He’s in pursuit of one thing — revenge.
Adam: You know more than anybody that rage is my — my baseline emotion. I’m — I’m like a 2 right now. So it can get a lot worse.
Chelsea: That’s what I’m afraid of. You talking about me going down a rabbit hole, but what about you? I see you walking around all calm, but I know something is burning under the surface.
Adam: [ Chuckles ]
Chelsea: You’re feeling wounded these days. Makes you want to lash out. You want to hurt the people that have hurt you. That side of you is back with a vengeance. I know how dangerous that can get. You gave me some good advice earlier, so let me ask you… is there any way I can talk you off the ledge? I brought in ensure max protein
Allie: As I may have mentioned, noah is looking for a space for the amazing club that he wants to open.
Allie: And guess what.
Traci: He found a good location.
Allie: Not just a good one. The best.
Adam: Yep, the glam club will officially be opening its doors at the grand phoenix as soon as the chancellor-winters acquisition of the hotel is finalized.
Jack: Phyllis actually went through with the sale. Even with her job at marchetti, I wasn’t sure she could bear to let go of it.
Allie: Noah pitched the idea to lily, and she loved it.
Noah: Oh, no hesitation. She was on board from the get-go.
Allie: It was like the perfect fit.
Jack: This sounds like a celebration. How about lunch at society?
Noah: Yeah, sounds good.
Jack: We’re in.
Adam: Thanks for trying to look out for me, but you can’t help me now. This is between me and my dad, okay? I let him use me yet again and toss me aside.
Chelsea: Pushing you out of the company in favor of victoria is wrong, but sadly predictable. It’s a signature victor move.
Adam: Mm. No, you don’t know the half of what dear old dad has done this time, okay? He pulled another one of his classic maneuvers, and once again, just dredging up a lot of damage from the past.
Chelsea: What do you mean?
Adam: Ashland locke didn’t die in that car crash.
Chelsea: What? I thought the investigation was closed.
Adam: Well, it was, but that’s because dad made sure of it.
Chelsea: So, how did ashland die?
Adam: Apparently, ashland turned up at victoria’s in some sort of a rage, and to protect our sister, nick accidentally killed him.
Chelsea: Oh, my god. No wonder victoria was so tense when I saw her the other day.
Adam: Yeah, it was a bad situation all around. But what does dad do? He covers it up, moves the body so he can keep the newman hands clean.
Chelsea: Did victor tell you all this?
Adam: Well, never mind how i found out about it. The point is, he covered it up. Chelsea.
Chelsea: Wow. I see so many parallels between ashland’s death and A.J. Montalvo’s back in kansas.
Adam: Yeah, if he got away with it once, why not try it again?
Chelsea: I mean, I’m sure this brings up a lot for you, but I — I thought you found peace with it.
Adam: How do you make peace with finding out that you’re a child killer and nobody told you? I mean, you could pretend, stuff it down, but it never goes away. I mean, the fact that they kept this from me for all these years — it just — it did me a lot more harm than good.
Chelsea: I think he was trying to protect you from getting hurt. I think he wanted to help you because you’re his son, the same way you would go to extremes to protect connor and maybe even me, even though we’re not together anymore.
Nick: I appreciate the warning, but this isn’t the first time adam’s tried to get revenge on our family. I was really hoping that after he gave faith one of his kidneys that he would turn a corner. But obviously I was wrong about that. You know, I would like to give my brother the benefit of the doubt, but he’s made his position crystal-clear.
Sally: I find that really sad.
Nick: It is reality. I’m sure you only got to see the good side of adam when you guys were together, you know, but my family has had to deal with the best and worst of adam. And I don’t like saying this to you, sally, ’cause I know you care about him but I think — I think you’re better off not being in a relationship with him. And now please welcome ana montoya.
“The young and the restless”
Talia: Can I ask, why are you rooting for diane jenkins to fail?
Phyllis: I know you did your research, and I know you read that article in restless style from years ago detailing all these things she did. I mean, it’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Talia: Really? Because the things in that story were out there — home-wrecking, arson, sperm stealing?
Phyllis: Sperm stealing. Yes. Completely out there. I mean, if I told you everything else, your head would start spinning and it wouldn’t stop spinning.
Talia: I want to know everything.
Phyllis: Alright. Have a seat. Get comfortable. I’ll tell you everything. And honestly, I’m not holding back. Where do you want to start? Multiple blackmails? Child abandonment? Faking her own death?
Nikki: I certainly hope you didn’t mistake my earlier civility as an invitation to join me.
Diane: [ Scoffs ] Certainly not.
Jack: Ohh, that cannot be good.
Traci: Well, you know, why don’t we just leave them alone, okay? Maybe we — [ Sighs ] Maybe not.
Nikki: Hello, jack.
Diane: Hi. Traci.
Traci: Hello, ladies.
Jack: Are we interrupting some kind of tte–tte?
Nikki: Oh, no, not at all. I’m just finishing my lunch at my table for one. Diane is just leaving.
Diane: Waiting for takeout.
Jack: Everything alright?
Nikki: Really, jack?
Diane: [ Laughs ]
Sally: As many times as i have told myself things are over with adam and knowing it’s for the best, part of me still has feelings for him. And maybe, yeah, it’s because i mainly did see the good parts of him, and the bad parts… honestly, I could relate to because, in a certain way, I’ve lived in adam’s shoes. I have felt burned and insulted by people and was so determined to make them regret it. I mean, sure, yes, that wasn’t the only way adam and I were alike, but it definitely sparked a connection.
Nick: I’m aware of some of the stunts you’ve pulled in the past. I’d like to believe you’ve left all that behind.
Sally: I would, too. But I won’t lie. I definitely get the urge from time to time to deliver a swift dose of payback to those who wronged me, not wait for karma to kick them in the ass. But that’s natural, right?
[ Both laugh ]
Nick: Yeah, I think, uh — I think we’ve all been there, you know, some of us more than others.
Sally: Well, my point is, i haven’t acted on any of those darker impulses. And maybe the turning of the tides was people actually having faith in me — or at least willing to give me a fair chance…the way you have. It really made a difference for me.
Nick: Yeah. I’d like to believe that a little faith could create a change in adam. You know, I’d like to have a brother that I could have a bond with or trust. But unfortunately, adam has proven over and over again that his turnarounds just don’t last very long.
Adam: You’re right. I would move heaven and earth for connor. I would break any law. Hell, I would move a dozen bodies if I thought that it would genuinely help him. And I would probably move a couple corpses for connor’s mother, as well.
Chelsea: Well, hopefully it doesn’t come to that, but i appreciate it.
Adam: But that doesn’t mean that you can pick and choose the things that victor does which are bad and good because even when he does something decent, it comes at a price always.
Chelsea: Oh, as someone who went to the mental hospital instead of jail because of him, I am very well aware of how he operates.
Adam: Yes. You understand. But he’ll never admit it. The man will never apologize. And I think it’s time someone forced his hand right here, right now. And I happen to have the power and the evidence to do it. (Buzz)
starting with the delicious
taste of honey nut cheerios,
Allie: Was I gushing too much with jack and traci earlier?
Noah: No, it was the perfect amount of gush.
Noah: Okay, that looks like it could turn into a knockdown, drag-out fight any second now.
Allie: Yep. With my grandfather trapped in the middle.
Noah: If things get gnarly, my money’s on grandma. That lady’s tough as nails.
Allie: Yeah, but diane’s sneaky. And I wouldn’t count traci out. That woman’s been through some things. Hey, promise me this. No matter how hostile it gets inside there, it is not gonna spoil this amazing day for the two of us.
Noah: It won’T.
Nikki: I was minding my own business, and then diane appeared uninvited. Yet I couldn’t have been more civil. Isn’t that right, diane?
Diane: That’s true. Nikki has been pleasantly, shockingly, bizarrely even-keeled.
Nikki: So, yes, jack, everything is fine. See you. Hi!
Noah: Hey, grandma. You heading out?
Nikki: Uh, yeah. It’s getting a little crowded in here.
Noah: Okay, well, we’ll have to catch up some other time, but before you go, I want to introduce you to allie.
Nikki: Oh, it’s a pleasure. I’ve heard so much about you from noah.
Allie: Same here. It’s so lovely meeting you.
Nikki: Well, I hope that we can spend some time together soon.
Allie: I would love that.
Nikki: You two have fun.
Noah: Okay. I’ll check in with you later.
Nikki: Alright, sweetie.
Jack: I suppose I did jump to the conclusion that nikki was harassing you.
Diane: Not a bad guess.
Allie: Hi, everyone. Thank you again for offering to take us out to celebrate.
Jack: You are most welcome.
Allie: Should we get a table?
Nikki: You know what? Let’s — let’s do that.
Diane: What’s the occasion?
Allie: We’re celebrating my boyfriend’s new club.
Diane: Oh! Wow. That’s wonderful.
Jack: Would you like to join us?
Diane: Well, normally I would love to, but I have a job that I’m devoted to, and I need to get back to work. Ah, looks like my take-out is ready. Noah, congratulations. I can’t wait to check out the club once it opens. Bye.
Traci: [ Sighs ]
[ Clears throat ]
Traci: I think our table’s ready.
Sally: Of course I understand you have a longer history with adam than I do. I’m not pleading his case here. I just… I’m worried about him. That’s why I couldn’t keep quiet about it.
Adam: Well, vick and I are grateful for that.
Sally: Telling her was in everyone’s best interest, including adam’S. I wish someone had told me when I was hell-bent on revenge ’cause that is a road I never want to go down again.
Nick: Well, I think you’ve come a long way.
Sally: It’s a daily journey, right?
Chelsea: I get your drive and your frustration. I’ve been there, as you know. You want justice, and you’ll go to dark places to get it.
Adam: But that — that’s the thing, chelsea. This isn’t dark. All I’m trying to do is expose the truth to light.
Chelsea: We both know there’s a lot more to it. If you try to hurt victor, he’s gonna go after you. He’s like you in that regard. Reigniting this battle will be a mistake for you and for connor.
Adam: Okay, I can and I will keep connor completely out of it.
Chelsea: We both know that’s not possible. Connor loves his father and his grandfather. He’ll be stuck in the middle. There’s no way he can be immune to the fallout. You don’t want to traumatize your kid, do not start a war with his grandfather.
Adam: [ Sighs ]
Chelsea: You want to beat victor, beat him by being a better dad. Focus on the future. Focus on connor. Stop keeping score and stop holding grudges. Beat victor by letting go.
Talia: I can’t believe one person could do so much in one lifetime.
Phyllis: I know. Can you believe it? I mean, diane’s a real overachiever in that sense. I mean — but I — I just think that if someone were to, um, try to get the world reacquainted with her past deeds, that might unnerve diane and she’ll go back to the person she was — I mean, the person that she’s always been, of course. I mean, she’ll just snap. And then certain people — it will prove to them that she has not changed at all.
Talia: I’m open to exploring diane’s life. I just don’t want to report on a story that’s already been out there.
Phyllis: Oh, no, wait. I totally understand that. I mean, I certainly believe that there’s something to uncover in her time in los angeles, for sure. So, I think that, um, if I were to give you some juicy details that weren’t in the
restless style story and you were to put those out in the world while you’re investigating her activity in los angeles, that could really be the story of the century — the downfall of diane jenkins.
Jack: Boy, the kids sure left right after we ate. Was it us?
Traci: Boy, I hope not. I mean, I certainly enjoy your company, that’s for sure.
Jack: And I definitely enjoy yours. But you know what? I remember what it was to be their age, young and in —
Traci: Lust. Mm-hmm.
Jack: It is my granddaughter we are talking about.
Traci: [ Laughs ] But, jack, you’re making it sound like you and I are all washed up here. I mean, I think it’s a little premature to put us out to pasture. I predict that one of these days, very soon, for us both, there will be nothing we’ll want more than to spend time alone with a special someone in our lives.
Jack: Please tell me we are not circling back to that subject.
Traci: What subject?
Traci: [ Sighs ]
Jack: She is not a special someone in my life.
Traci: I understand that. And, believe me, I am not pushing the two of you together. I’m just making an observation that for somebody that you are not ready to forgive, you certainly want to spend a lot of time together.
Noah: I still can’t believe the club’s gonna become a reality.
Allie: It is. Oh, my gosh. Stop doubting yourself. Hey. I believe in you.
Noah: I got to share the credit with you.
Allie: No, you don’T. This was all your idea.
Noah: Babe, lily saw the enthusiasm in your eyes, okay? It was contagious. Gave me fresh inspiration during my pitch. It helped me envision what the place could actually be. That was all because of you.
Allie: Well, I am not gonna take any credit for it. But I did love getting to be a part of it. Noah, this is — this is so incredible.
Noah: You’re incredible. Hey. Are you sure?
Allie: Yeah. I’m sure.
Adam: Well, god knows you’re not the first person to tell me I need to break the cycle with victor.
Chelsea: Well, maybe it’s about time you start to listen?
Adam: [ Sighs ] At least jack gave me a job offer.
Chelsea: You’re kidding?
Adam: Mm-hmm. I thought he was kidding at first, but he was serious.
Chelsea: Oh, adam, congratulations. I think working at jabot would be an awesome fit for you.
Adam: I turned it down.
Chelsea: What? Why? Jack respects you and cares about you, and it’s about time you separated from the newmans, you know, started fresh.
Adam: Well, how often do you and I make the right moves for ourselves?
Chelsea: Mm, that’s a good point, very valid point. Listen, I was starting fresh. It felt good for a little while, then boom, bam — bye-bye, podcast.
[ Chuckles, groans ]
Adam: [ Chuckles ] Ah.
Chelsea: [ Sighs ]
Adam: We certainly are a pair, aren’t we?
Chelsea: We are on a killer winning streak, yeah.
Adam: Mm-hmm. You know, they call people like us “coolers” at the blackjack table.
Chelsea: Oh. Because we’re so cool?
Adam: Super cool.
Chelsea: We have been through a lot together. The fact that we don’t hate each other after all of it belongs in a history book somewhere.
Adam: I am really glad that we’ve gotten to a place where we can support each other emotionally.
