Abby: Nick. Hey.
Nick: Hey. You getting ready for the dinner rush?
Abby: Yeah. We’re down a hostess. Are you here by yourself?
Nick: I was having lunch earlier with dad and vick. I just stuck around for a while.
Nick: Have you talked to chance recently? I tried to call him earlier. Went straight to voicemail.
Abby: Uh, yeah, I was with him earlier, but then he got called in to work, so that’s probably why he didn’t answer his phone.
Nick: That makes sense.
Abby: We had a mini first birthday celebration for dominic at the park.
Nick: Has it been a year already?
Abby: I know. Can you believe it?
[ Chuckles ]
Nick: Oh, man. You know, what I can’t believe is that you didn’t invite his favorite uncle to the party. I missed all the cake, the balloons, everything.
Abby: Well, don’t worry. We’re gonna have a bigger celebration with the extended family when things calm down a bit.
Nick: You are crazy if you think things are ever gonna calm down with the newmans. Hey. You okay?
Chelsea: I know. It’s so good to hear your voice, too, connor.
[ Exhales heavily ] I just can’t wait for you to come home. But I’m — I’m gonna let you go. Just know that I love you and i miss you more than you could possibly imagine. Okay. I’ll see you soon. I love you. Bye.
[ Breathing heavily ]
[ Sighs ]
[ Sniffles ]
Chance: Hey, chelsea. You alright?
Allie: Man, I have to say, moving out to genoa city turned out to have so many more upsides than I ever expected.
Noah: Present company included?
Allie: Oh, yes.
Noah: [ Sighs ]
Allie: Say it.
Noah: No, nothing. It’s —
Allie: No. Say it.
Noah: I was gonna make a lame chemistry joke, but stopped myself in time, considering my poor attempts at humor almost tanked us in the beginning.
Allie: Well, that was then, and this is now. I insist on hearing your lame joke.
Noah: Mnh-mnh, it was so bad, I already forgot it.
Allie: Well, maybe — maybe you can forensically reconstruct it. Go ahead. I’ll wait.
Noah: [ Breathes deeply ]
Allie: Remember when we first started dating and you told me that your sense of humor was an acquired taste?
Allie: Well, I think I have definitely acquired the taste.
Noah: No, no, things are going too well. I can’t risk it.
Allie: Oh, so you do remember it.
Allie: Well, tell me.
Allie: Tell me. Otherwise, I will —
Noah: Or else what? What are you gonna do? You gonna tickle it out of me, huh?
Allie: Oh, don’t you tempt me!
Chelsea: To answer your question, I’m not having a great day, and you’re not the first person to notice, which makes me realize I’m not doing a great job of coping.
[ Sighs ] You know, it’s like, right when you think you have a handle on things…
[ Sniffles ]
Chance: Yeah. You know, I’ve worked undercover for so long, you’d think I’d be good at masking my emotions, but nope, especially with abby. She can just see right through me, you know?
Chelsea: Well, yeah. And you shouldn’t keep anything from your wife. She loves you so much. You both are very lucky to have each other.
Chance: Do you mind if I sit?
Chelsea: That’s sweet, but you don’t have to try to make me feel better.
Chance: Well, the person I’m supposed to meet — he’s not here yet. So, I could go stand at the other side of the bar if you’d like me to, but it feels a little silly.
Chelsea: Okay, then. Be my guest.
[ Keys clacking ]
[ Knock on door ]
Jack: Adam. Hey, come on in.
Adam: Well, thanks for carving out time for me.
Jack: If you wanted to meet for the reason I think, you could be my favorite appointment all day long.
Adam: Well, the co-ceo position, as you mentioned. Like I said in my voicemail, I’ve been giving it some more thought.
Jack: Please tell me you’ve changed your mind.
Adam: That’s exactly why I’m here. If it still stands.
Jack: It still absolutely stands. Welcome aboard. For copd,
provided by… my blood pressure is borderline.
Abby: I’m great. You, on the other hand…
Nick: What about me?
Abby: [ Sighs ] Well, just after everything that you went through that night, I’ve just — I’ve been worried about you.
Nick: I’m alright.
Abby: Look, I hope you don’t mind me saying this, but that sounds a lot like the assurances that chance used to make when he got home from spain. “Hey, everything’s fine.” But it really wasn’t that simple.
Nick: I guess…what I did — you know, it really weighs on me.
Abby: I hope that you know that you were justified in protecting our sister.
Nick: I know, abby, but living with the knowledge of taking another man’s life, whether I intended to or not, is hard.
Abby: And I’m sure it’s only natural to have those thoughts, but you are a good person. And you just got caught up in the middle of a terrible, violent situation. You had to make a snap judgment call, and you did what you had to do. And what makes me so angry is that ashland is still tormenting all of us from beyond the grave.
Nick: Well, our father doesn’t seem like he’s tortured with regret.
Abby: You know dad. He doesn’t second-guess his decisions.
Nick: No, he doesn’T.
Abby: And in case it helps, you’re not the only one feeling this way. Chance is struggling with it, too.
Chance: Yeah, I totally know how it feels when the world is just coming at you. You know, it feels like it’s too much. And then just the littlest thing tips the scale. Done for the day.
Chelsea: Yep. You caught me having a moment when you walked in, but I’ll get past it. You know, people assume, because of my past and because of my recent stay in a mental hospital —
Chance: Oh, I wasn’t judging, by the way. You just seem distressed. You know, it happens to everybody. And as far as that goes, I think you’d be surprised to know that I’m actually seeing a therapist for my own mental-health issues.
Chelsea: Good for you. Because of what you went through in spain?
Chance: Yeah. Yeah. And I’ll admit it, I definitely got pushed into the whole getting help thing.
Chelsea: Huh. What a coincidence. Me too!
Chance: But you know what? I’m glad I did it ’cause this guy, he’s just — you know, he’s making me see things in a new light. He’s definitely made me realize that I don’t have the control that I thought I did over the universe. I don’t have any, to tell you the truth.
Chelsea: Wow. Your therapist sounds really good. Mine was just so-so.
Chance: Oh, I’m sorry about that.
Chelsea: So, give me some words of wisdom.
Chance: Yeah. Um, alright. Well…I think the most important thing that I came away with is that things — they don’t always work out the way that you think they should, right? You can play by the rules. You can do everything right. But there are just scenarios where the rules aren’t adequate to address what’s going on. You know, people — they get stuff thrown at them all the time. And sometimes they just can’t handle it. So, you can either waste time and energy by getting worked up, getting upset. Or you can just accept the fact that that’s life. That’s part of it. You move on, and you look for solutions. Easier said than done. That’s for sure.
Chelsea: Well, that’s where i keep getting stuck, you know? Everyone keeps saying, “just put one foot in front of the other,” but no one tells you the right path to take. So, I choose a path, and then it gets cut off before I’ve gotten anywhere.
Chance: And then once you’ve chosen that path, you can’t reverse course out of there, right? The way back is blocked. Yeah. You know, whenever I start to feel lost like that, what really helps me I try to look for these little things, you know, little, tiny moments that’ll either give you some hope, some strength. I don’t know. Most of the time, it’s usually something about my son.
Chelsea: Yeah. For me, too. I don’t know what I would do without connor.
Jack: We can talk about the bonus structure in more detail. First, I want to know that the year-one salary is to your liking.
Adam: Uh, I think I can live with it.
Jack: Good. That’s what I want to hear. I am glad I held out hope that you would change your mind. You didn’t make me wait too long.
Adam: Luckily, the stars aligned for both of us. So, um, when would you like me to start?
Jack: How’s yesterday work for you?
Adam: [ Chuckles ] Tomorrow it is then.
Jack: Glad to hear it. Look, as far as divvying up responsibilities, I can tell you what kyle and I set up, or we can start from scratch. As a matter of fact, that’s probably a better idea, given your years of management experience and your relative lack of experience in the cosmetics industry.
Adam: Mm-hmm. Before we dive into all that, i just — I have a few — and i hesitate to call them reservations, but —
Jack: You got questions, I have answers. What’s on your mind?
Adam: Well, for starters, we haven’t touched on how the rest of your family is going to react, jack. They tend not to be fans of mine. You know I’m used to dealing with skepticism and distrust, but I just — I don’t want to be the cause of any difficulties for you.
Jack: Thank you for your concern. You have nothing to worry about. In the event that you changed your mind and decided to take the job, I convinced them this was a good idea.
Adam: Them? Ashley, kyle, et cetera everybody?
Jack: Most of them. Look, I’m just happy you didn’t take the other project, since I’m guessing it was something to get back at victor.
Adam: Well, that’s more of a hobby than a career move.
Jack: Adam, as a friend and a soon-to-be colleague, I am telling you it is long past time for you to leave that obsession behind. I have bigger things for you to do.
Billy: Jackie! It’s 5:00 somewhere! Let’s get a drink! What are you doing here?
Adam: Your brother and I — we were just shooting the breeze.
Billy: Well, I’m sure that’s not true.
Jack: Adam and I were having a little business discussion. Could I get a rain check?
Billy: Oh, god. You’re seriously gonna do this, aren’t you? Mornings are our time,
Jack: Billy, I think you and I agreed this is my decision. I am delighted that adam has decided to join me at the helm.
Billy: So, he’s just decided? So, it’s not actually final yet? That’s good, jack. You can change your mind.
Adam: You know, he is right, jack. We haven’t signed anything, so if you have any reservations —
Jack: I don’T. Adam and I were just working out the terms of his deal. There has been no announcement, but as far as I’m concerned, this is official.
[ Cellphone ringing ] I will contact legal about getting a contract going.
Adam: Sounds good.
Jack: Guys, if you will forgive me, I have to take this call. Can you give me the office? Hey, doug. Been expecting your call.
[ Door closes ]
Billy: You know I don’t trust you. I really never have. So, whatever this is, whatever you have planned, know that i will be watching your every move.
Adam: I don’t know how you expect to do that since you haven’t worked here yourself in years. Why does it even matter to you who jack hires?
Billy: It matters very much, adam. This is my family company. This is my father’s legacy. And you destroy everything you touch.
Adam: Well, you shouldn’t worry about that. I mean, if jabot can survive you, it can probably survive just about anything.
[ Door opens ]
Jack: I just e-mailed legal to start drafting a contract, so that’s in the works.
Jack: In the meantime, i think maybe it’s time for you and I to have a celebratory drink. Billy, you’re more than welcome to join us.
Billy: I’d rather have a root canal.
Jack: Suit yourself. Shall we?
[ Elevator doors open ]
[ Elevator doors close ]
Nick: I know chance has some regrets about his decision to wrap things up.
Abby: It was a tough call. But I was hoping, once he made it, he’d be able to put the guilt behind him, but it’s still haunting him.
Nick: [ Sighs ] I really hate hearing that, abby.
Abby: He was so preoccupied at dominic’s birthday party, and when I asked him about it, he admitted that he was having a hard time with all of this. And I am trying so hard to be supportive. Chance is all about integrity, and that’s one of the things i admire most about him. But there is integrity in what he did and standing by his family. I see the value in family, where he sees it as a conflict of interest.
Nick: Did he, uh, say anything else?
Abby: No, not really. We were in the middle of hashing things out, but he got a call that he had a meeting with an informant from one of rey’s old cases, so he had to go, which was probably a good thing because things were getting pretty tense. It’s just so clear to me that he did the right thing by standing by his family. And every time I bring it up, every time I thank him for it, it just — it hits a nerve.
Nick: Yeah. Well, uh, maybe don’t mention it. You know, if it bothers him, just let it go.
Abby: I just — I don’t understand why he can’t see it the way that I do. Ashland’s death — it was a mistake. It was an accident. I mean, chance has admitted that himself. He has no qualms about it. So, dropping the case — that seems like the right thing to do. I mean, no one gets charged with a crime that happened in the heat of the moment. And it’s a win-win. But if chance keeps regretting it — I mean, even worse, if he re-opens the case — what does that mean for our father?
Nick: You know what? I’ll, uh — I’ll talk to chance, see if I can ease his mind.
Abby: No, nick, please. Please don’t pressure chance. It’s not gonna help.
Nick: No. I won’T.
Abby: Promise me?
Nick: I swear it, abby. Look, I get where you’re coming from. It was a big problem with phyllis and me because we had different feelings about my family. She really started resenting it when I showed any loyalty to them whatsoever, especially dad. But you and chance — you’ve got something real good here. Don’t let this come between you, okay?
Abby: That’s what I’m worried about.
Nick: It’s gonna be okay, alright?
Chance: Well, I hope I’m not making it seem like I got it all figured out because that is not the case.
Chelsea: What? You’re my guru now. The man with all the answers. Why did he say your book was coming out again?
Chance: [ Chuckles ]
Chelsea: No, but really, I’m impressed by how open you are about your struggles.
Chance: Well, thank you. I’ve been learning a lot about myself, I’ll tell you what, and what I’m capable of, good and bad.
Chelsea: Mm. And I’m glad I get to benefit from your therapy sessions. So, next round’s on me.
Chance: Well, it looks like my appointment just showed up.
Chelsea: Oh. Rain check then.
Chance: Absolutely. Excuse me.
Allie: Alright, you win. I don’t want to hear your lame joke anymore.
Noah: Oh, good. Now you won’t lose any respect for me.
Allie: Is that what happened to your last relationship? One too many bad puns?
Noah: Yeah, exactly.
Allie: Sorry. That — that was me being totally lame. Sensitive subject?
Noah: No. No, it’s fine.
Allie: Okay. Then, uh… then you don’t mind talking about her?
Noah: [ Chuckles ] Hi, my name’s steve.
Noah: It’s not like I’m so devastated by the break-up that I can’t talk about it. I just — I don’t want to be that guy.
Allie: Trashing your ex, you mean?
Noah: Yeah. It’s not a good look.
Allie: Yeah. I respect that.
Noah: But you’re still curious.
Allie: I am. I — I feel like it’s one of those basic things you want to know in a new relationship, right? What happened in the previous one. How come you’re available to be scooped up?
Noah: Yeah. I get it.
Allie: Maybe you can just tell me how you felt. Why was it not working for you?
Noah: I guess I was just really confused a lot of the time. I could never predict how she would react to things.
Allie: I’m not sure I know what you mean. Like, things you gave her or things you said?
Noah: Yeah, conversation, mostly. You know, we’d talk about something one day and it would be perfectly fine. And then the next time I brought it up, I’d know that I made a mistake, but I wouldn’t know why. I’d have no idea how to fix it or if I should even try to.
Allie: Indirect communication.
Noah: Yeah. It drove me crazy. Instead of “what you see is what you get,” it turned into this giant guessing game, never really knowing where you stand.
Allie: That honestly sounds really exhausting.
Noah: No, it was good in the beginning. Then all of a sudden, we started getting these little — I don’t know — these little glitches. And I’d be like, “huh. What was that all about?” And it started happening more and more, and eventually it got so bad that I felt like I was walking on eggshells the whole time.
Allie: Did you love her?
Noah: I thought I did in the beginning. But now that I’ve had some time looking back on the relationship, I realize it was pretty toxic. It was one of those addictive ones that you can’t really handle, but you also can’t bring yourself to let it go. Know what I mean?
Allie: Actually, I — I do not. I have not dated that many guys. And the relationships that i have been in are mostly just awkward.
Noah: I have had those, too. No spark, no passion that really takes off.
Allie: Not like this one.
Noah: Let’s stop talking about the past. It’s not nearly as interesting as the future.
[ Indistinct conversation ]
Chance: Hey. I, uh — I got to get back to the station, but I just wanted to say it was nice chatting with you.
Chelsea: That meeting looked so mysterious. Was that about an investigation? Is that man an informant? Oh, come on. I know it’s none of my business, but I can’t help being curious.
Chance: It’s okay. What I can say is, as of today, I will have closed all of rey’s cases. Every single one of them. Made that commitment after he died, and, uh, well, it took me a little longer than I thought. But now I can tell my buddy i did it.
Chelsea: Wow. That’s amazing.
Chance: Hey. [ Chuckles ]
Chelsea: That’s — sorry. It’s just — that’s such a special thing to do for rey. What a tribute to him.
Chance: Well, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Chelsea: I miss him.
Chance: I do, too.
Abby: For you.
Nick: What’s this?
Abby: Well, actually, they’re for christian. They’re the cuban shortbread cookies that he likes so much.
Nick: That is so sweet of you. I’ll let him know his aunt abby’s thinking about him.
Abby: Well, I should be thanking you for listening to all of my concerns. I know that you’re very busy these days.
Nick: Yeah. Vick has some seriously ambitious plans for newman enterprises. I’ve got a lot on my to-do list.
Abby: Uh, yes, I remember what it’s like working with our sister. Why do you think I like running my own business so much?
Nick: Well, no matter how busy I get, just know that I’m always here for you, abby. If you ever need me, day or night, just call.
Abby: Thank you. I hope it doesn’t come to that, though.
Jack: Hey. Hello, you two.
Abby: Uncle jack. Hi. Adam.
Adam: Good to see you both.
Jack: Uh, join us for a drink? Adam and I came by to raise a toast or two.
Nick: What are you celebrating?
Adam: My new job at jabot cosmetics. I’m going be jack’s co-ceo.
Abby: [ Sighs ]
“The young and the restless”
[Sfx: Buzzing ] This is pretection
Abby: That is some news. Congratulations.
Adam: Oh, well, thank you. Pretty amped about it.
Jack: Yeah. Me too.
Abby: How long has this been in the works? I mean, you didn’t mention it the last time we spoke.
Nick: Or earlier today.
Jack: Well, it took me a while to talk your brother into seeing this as a good move. But now I look at it as an act of pure genius on my part.
Nick: How’s that, exactly?
Jack: Well, now the kyle has moved over to marchetti to run things there, it left me with a nationwide launch for an executive to replace him, and it turns out I already knew the person who was the right candidate.
Nick: Yeah, I know summer’s very excited to be working with her husband again.
Jack: Yeah, they are a great team. Anyway, I got used to having a right-hand man, and since adam was at loose ends, having resigned from newman, it seemed the timing was fortuitous.
Nick: Did you have this position in mind when we talked earlier?
Adam: Wasn’t even a glimmer on the horizon.
Jack: No, I actually sprung this offer on him a few days ago, and he turned me down flat.
Adam: Yes, yes, I was reluctant at first, but the more I thought about it, I realized this could be a beneficial move.
Abby: Beneficial for you?
Jack: And me and the company and anyone who works there. Jabot is lucky to have an executive of adam’s caliber.
Abby: No doubt.
Nick: You know, adam, you would have had a lot more autonomy if you stayed on as ceo of newman media.
Adam: Ohh. Does anybody really have autonomy working under victor newman?
Nick: When we talked earlier, you said you were looking to go in a different direction.
Jack: Well, I certainly think this qualifies, don’t you? Adam and I have been talking about breaking away from old patterns, and, uh, I think that’s a lot of what this is about.
Nick: Yeah, I don’t know, jack. To make a move like this, it seems like you’d be driven by a lot of rage and resentment, to give up what you had at newman media to take a lesser position at a different company. No offense, jack.
Jack: No offense taken. Newman media’s loss is my gain.
Allie: [ Laughing ]
Noah: Come here.
Traci: [ Clears throat ] Hi. Hi, guys. Hi.
[ Laughs ]
Allie: Traci. Hi.
Traci: Noah, it’s so nice to see you again so soon.
Noah: Yeah, you — you, too, trace. How’s it going?
Traci: Oh, it’s going really well. Thanks. I’ve been all over town. I ran a bunch of errands, and now I get to relax.
Noah: Sounds good. Well, uh, I should probably get going, so I’ll let you two get back to it.
Traci: Okay. Well, really, enjoy the rest of your day.
Noah: You too. Thank you.
[ Chuckles ]
[ Laughing ] We were so not subtle. How embarrassing.
Traci: No. Oh, my gosh, allie, no. You have nothing to be embarrassed about. In fact, if you had read any of my novels, you would know it’s gonna take a lot more than that to make me blush.
[ Both laugh ]
Chance: Thank you.
Sharon: Of course.
Chance: Hey, do you — do you have a minute to talk?
Sharon: Sure. What’s going on?
Chance: Oh, I just wanted to come by and tell you that i filed the last report on that list. So, as of today, I have closed all of rey’s cases that he was working on before he died. There’s no unfinished business.
Sharon: Wow. Thank you. I know that would have meant a lot to rey.
Chance: And I know I’ve said this a lot, but it was an honor to work with your husband and to finish what he started. And I know these words are thrown around, but he was truly an inspiration and a role model for me and for a lot of others.
Sharon: You know, I can tell you rey felt the same way about you. He had a lot of respect for you. And he was so happy to be working with someone as honorable as you are, chance. (Assad) since my mother
Traci: Okay. I thought that we could use a little something to nosh on, you know, after all the strenuous activities of the day.
Allie: Oh, my god. You are killing me.
Traci: What? I was talking about me running all over town, doing my errands. What did you think I was talking — [ Gasps ] Oh!
Allie: You have a real wicked streak, you know that?
Traci: [ Laughs ] I do. I really do. I kind of keep it hidden, you know, to surprise people. It’s more fun that way.
[ Both laugh ]
Allie: [ Sighs ]
Traci: Ah, and speaking of fun, you and noah — you’re just adorable together. I love seeing that your friendship is turning into something more, and I can see how much you care about him.
Allie: I really do. God, it’s — it’s ridiculous how happy I am right now. I cannot stop smiling.
Traci: I see nothing ridiculous about that.
Allie: I don’t know. I guess — I guess there’s just a part of me that wonders if this is too good to be true. It’s ’cause I’m still in that infatuation stage now.
Traci: Allie, that’s the best part.
Allie: Is it, though, traci? Or am I really just setting myself up to get really hurt? I don’t know. Maybe the smart thing to do would be to rein myself in and be more cautious, you know?
Traci: What? [ Laughs ] I see absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy every single minute of this. Because you’re right — this is a phase. It’s the height of the happy, giddy feelings. You know, some couples, the really lucky ones, find a way to make this last for a lifetime, but for most people, this just moves into something deeper. That’s all the more reason that you need to really enjoy the here and now.
Allie: That is a great point.
Traci: You have had a really difficult year. You lost your dad. You had to sell your family home and move across the country to live with a family you never even knew you had. I mean, this is a lot for anyone to handle. So, how wonderful that life has balanced it out for you with butterflies in the stomach and long talks with a man who finds you fascinating. You know, finding yourself alone, just smiling because that handsome someone crossed your mind.
Allie: Traci, I — I care so much for noah. You know, I feel so safe with him, but it’s never boring. And I have never experienced anything like this before.
Traci: Then my advice for you is — enjoy it for what it is. Maybe leave a little room for what it might become. And, honey, do not talk yourself out of experiencing something rapturous in the name of caution.
[ Both laugh ] You are such a writer.
Traci: Okay, you’re not gonna joke your way out of this conversation, young lady.
Allie: No. You’re right. I’m sorry. It’s such a bad habit of mine. But I promise I — I have heard every word and gotten the message. I need to give myself permission to be happy.
Sharon: One of the first things that I noticed about rey when I was working with him at the police station as a victim’s advocate is he had this thing for very sharp pencils.
Chance: [ Chuckles ]
Sharon: I would come into work in the morning, 7:00 A.M., And there he’d be with the pencil sharpener.
Chance: Yeah, his morning routine. I know. It was ridiculous.
Chance: How you doing, nick?
Nick: Good. Uh, I was looking for you. I was hoping to talk to you for a minute.
Sharon: Oh, well, that’s fine with me. Um, thanks for coming by to tell me what you did. It meant the world.
Chance: Absolutely. You’re welcome.
Nick: Thank you, sharon.
Chance: What’s going on?
Nick: I have some news. Um, I was with victoria and dad. Then adam showed up.
Chance: Full of threats to expose us, I’m assuming?
Nick: Actually, just the opposite. Seems like he’s had a change of heart.
Chance: Just like that? I guess he’s no longer gonna hold the investigation over our heads.
Chance: Where is this coming from, do you think? What’s his agenda?
Nick: I don’t know. Like you, I didn’t want to believe a word out of his mouth, but then he told me that he accepted a job to be jack’s co-ceo of jabot.
Chance: You’re kidding.
Nick: No. Jack has always had a positive influence on adam. Adam really looks up to him and respects him. You know, the two of them were very excited to be embarking on this journey together. So, maybe adam’s sincere and he’s looking for another chance to get a reset.
Chance: [ Sighs ] Oh, man, I really hope that’s the case. All this is starting to get to me a little bit.
Nick: Yeah. I talked to abby. Didn’t seem like she knew anything about adam’s vendetta.
Chance: No, I didn’t see the point of stressing her out unnecessarily.
Nick: Yeah, I can understand why you wanted to keep that information to yourself, but it has unfortunately backfired.
Chance: What now?
Nick: Look, abby could tell something was bothering me. She’s starting to fill in the blanks on her own. She’s very concerned about you, chance, and what’s gonna happen to you, if you’re gonna be able to live with your decision of closing the case. On the other hand, she’s also worried about her father and what’s gonna happen to him if you change your mind and go after him again. You need to talk to abby, chance.
Chance: [ Sighs ] Alright. Thanks for the heads-up.
Nick: [ Sighs ]
[ Door opens ]
Chelsea: [ Sighs ]
[ Door closes ]
[ Sniffles ]
[ Gasps lightly ]
[ Sobbing ] (Vo) start the day with cheerios oat crunch almond.
Traci: [ Clears throat ] Honey, I hope that you won’t think I’m prying.
Allie: No. Ask me anything.
Traci: Have you had some bad relationships? Is that why you’re nervous?
Allie: I have not dated that many guys. And the guys that I have dated — for the most part, the relationships have all kind of just been duds.
Allie: [ Chuckling ] Yeah. Nowhere near as dramatic as it sounds like noah’s has been.
Traci: Well, I have known noah since the day he was born, and he is an amazing young man. So, if you have any concerns, I can vouch for him.
Allie: No, no. That was also the impression that I’ve gotten. But it is great to hear from you, too.
Traci: Good. Cheers.
[ Both laugh ]
Noah: Hey, guys. I am dying for an iced coffee. Do you mind?
Sharon: Not at all.
Noah: Anyone else want one? Dad?
Nick: No. I’m good. Thanks.
Sharon: You certainly are in a good mood.

Noah: I don’t know. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I’m falling in love.
Chance: I am so sorry for the way I spoke to you earlier and for leaving like that. And I want you to know there’s nothing more important than you and dominic and our family. And I will do everything I can not lose sight of that again.

Jack: Your contract should be on my desk by now. Hmm. Or maybe not.

Jack: You know what? Let me go down to legal, see what’s holding it up. You’re welcome to stay here if you like.
Adam: Yeah. Yeah, sure thing. Hmm.
