Nate: One of those days, huh?

Nick: Ooh, yeah. Andy, can I get a beer? Thanks, man.

Nate: I hear you. I, um, just had to stop by for a quick drink or two to, uh, clear my head. You too?

Nick: [ Sighs ] Who am I kidding? It’s been more like one of those months. Or even years.

[ Chuckles ] So, yeah, let’s get a drink.

Jack: Hey, trace. I’m just wrapping things up here. Join me for a nightcap.

Diane: [ Chuckles ]

Jack: Oh, I — I didn’t realize you were here.

Diane: I am so sorry. I didn’t plan to be here this late. I fell asleep reading to harrison.

Jack: Oh, no.

Diane: Yeah, he’s — he’s still down for the night. But, um, I conked out in that little chair next to him.

Jack: I know from experience it’s not the most comfortable place to knock off.

Diane: No, no, it isn’T. Um, I guess kyle and summer went upstairs to bed and didn’t even realized I was up there. I’m a little — I’m a little embarrassed about it.

Jack: No, there’s no need to be.

Diane: Yeah, but now I’ve interrupted your time to unwind.

Jack: Don’t be silly. You are reading to our grandson. That’s hardly an intrusion.

[ Door closes ]

Nikki: Hey. Have you seen my travel chargers?

Victor: Have I seen your what?

Nikki: My travel chargers. I — I got tired of trying to keep track of every charger for every device, so I bought a lot of extra ones and I tucked them into this little case.

Victor: Huh. That’s a brilliant idea.

Nikki: Well, yeah, I thought that, too, but now I can’t find the case.

Victor: Oh, baby.

[ Glass thuds ] My baby.

Nikki: Well, I need them for my trip.

Victor: I know. I know. I know. I know.

[ “Unforgettable” playing ] Come here.

Nikki: [ Chuckling ] What?

Victor: Come here.

Nikki: What are you up to?

Victor: I think that you can buy whatever gadget it is in california.

Nikki: [ Sighs ]

That’s what you are

Victor: You need to relax now. Come here.


Victor: You’re so tense, baby. I’ve never seen you this tense before a flight.

Though near or far

Nikki: Well, you seem calmer than when I saw you earlier.

Victor: Mm-hmm. Well, I did many rounds on the heavy bag.

Nikki: Oh. Did you win?

Victor: Well, whatever the imaginary foes were, I knocked them all on their ass.

Nikki: [ Laughs ] Oh, this is so nice. But I do have a lot of packing to do.

Victor: Baby, it’s okay. Don’t worry, okay?

[ Smooches ] Enjoy the music.


in every way

Sally: [ Breathing heavily ]

Adam: [ Sighs ]

[ Doorknob rattles ] Sally?

[ Knock on door ]

Sally: [ Sniffles, sighs ]

Sally: Did you follow me home from society?

Adam: Why would I be interested in following you home?

Sally: No reason.

Adam: When we were at society, you didn’t mention that you were staying here.

Sally: The gcac was nice, but it was a little stuffy, so I was glad to get out of there.

Adam: Well, on behalf of the long-term grand phoenix residents, welcome back.

Sally: Thank you so much.

Adam: Can I come in for a nightcap?

Sally: I-I have a lot of work to catch up on.

Adam: Sally, I just want to talk. Just one drink. That’s it.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Diane: The problem is that once harrison becomes sleepy, it’s contagious.

Jack: Oh, tell me about it. And it doesn’t help that he wants to listen to the same stories over and over again.

Diane: [ Chuckling ] Oh, yeah. I must have read the bunny story at least six times. I mean, how many times can a little rabbit hop down the trail?

Jack: [ Chuckles ] Well, you know, I caught him at something the other day.

Diane: What’s that?

Jack: Well, you know how he has those dozens of dinosaurs?

Diane: Oh, I’ve seen them all.

Jack: I’ve always been very impressed that he knew the names of all of them.

Diane: I know, and he points them out — tyrannosaurus rex and triceratops.

Jack: Yeah, but he has a secret. He’s making up half of them.

Diane: What?

Jack: Well, I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt, but I had to draw the line at peanutbutter-asaurus.

Diane: [ Laughs ] Peanutbutter-asaurus?

Jack: Yeah. He tried to sell me as a legitimate name. I called him on it.

Diane: And what did he say?

Jack: He just giggled at me.

Diane: Oh, he is such a little stinker.

Jack: Yeah, and he has the charm to pull it all off. Listen, I know you don’t want to interrupt my evening, but there’s no reason I should have to relax alone. Um, can I maybe offer you a drink?

Diane: That would be lovely. Actually, a cup of tea would be nice. After the hectic day I’ve had, I could, um, use something to calm my nerves.

Nate: To surviving another day.

Nick: Yes, sir. I assume your troubles are related to ashland locke?

Nick: [ Chuckles ] Man, that was like three crises ago. You know, we put out one fire, another one just takes its place. It’s constant. You would have thought that when ashland died, the chaos would have gone away, but there’s just more to it, you know? There’s long-term consequences for everything.

Nate: I’ve been dealing with some of those same long-term consequences after my dealings with ashland. For the longest time, I felt suckered. After I found out ashland lied to me about being sick, i thought he chose to exploit me because I’m weak. But that’s not true. I’m not weak. I’m ambitious. And ashland saw that. And you know what? There’s nothing wrong with that. With so many nourishing shades,

Nick: There’s absolutely nothing wrong with ambition, nate. Within reason, you know? You don’t want it to be, uh, malicious or predatory. When that happens, people can sink their claws into anyone or anything, the old and the young, the weak and the strong. Then it turns malicious, whether you intended it to or not.

Nate: Mm. Fair enough. I put it all behind me anyway. It took some time, but I let go of all of my animosity towards ashland.

Nick: Good for you, man.

Nate: I hope victoria has moved on, as well.

Nick: Oh, yeah. She’s killing it, you know, completely focused on running newman. She was born to do that job.

Nate: I don’t know what role I’m destined to play in the business world. I’m still trying to figure out what it is I’m supposed to be doing with my life.

Nick: Things aren’t cool at chancellor-winters?

Nate: [ Chuckles ] Let’s just say I’m questioning a lot of things right now.

Nick: Well, I’m sure you’re gonna, you know, find your path. You’ll carve out a niche for yourself.

Nate: I don’t know about that.

Nick: Well, nate, if things don’t work out at chancellor-winters, you know there’s always other things you can do. Who knows? Maybe you end up at newman someday.

Nate: Thank you for your confidence in me, nick. I really appreciate it. Um, but, you know, I think things are going to start to turn around for me very soon.

[ “Unforgettable” playing ]

Victor: Baby, you’re not normally this uptight before a trip.

Nikki: Well, this trip is different.

Unforgettable, too

Victor: I mean, I know you’re gonna meet this deacon sharpe character. Show him how strong and tough you have become, okay?

Nikki: Yes, I — I plan on that. It’s just gonna be hard, though. I think I’ve been in denial about that.

Victor: Look, baby, why are you still upset about that after all this time?

Nikki: [ Sighs ] I don’t know. I mean, I was confident when i first made the decision to confront him, but — I don’t know — I think my conversation with victoria kind of shook me. I mean, I am concerned about the negative memories that this meeting will bring up, but not just for what they might do to me…but to us.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Adam: Thank you.

Sally: [ Sighs ] So, what is it that couldn’t wait till tomorrow to talk about?

Adam: [ Sighs ] I don’t know if I had anything specific in mind. It wasn’t anything urgent or anything. I just —

Sally: Adam — adam, I have a really big day tomorrow.

Adam: I miss you.

Sally: Please don’t make me regret letting you in here.

Adam: Look, I’m — I’m sorry. What happened at the pool bar — I don’t know if I overstepped or I was picking up on a vibe that wasn’t there.

Sally: [ Scoffs ] It still isn’T.

Adam: I moved too quickly, and I apologize.

Sally: You should not have moved at all.

Adam: Look, I know that i blew it with you in every way possible. But the fact is, I haven’t stopped loving you. And I don’t want to let you go, sally.

Moving forward with node-

positive breast cancer

Elena: Nick. Hey.

Nick: Hey, elena. I was just, uh, talking to your man in there. I think he’s going through something.

Elena: Oh. Uh, thanks for the heads-up.

Nick: Yeah. Good luck.

Elena: Nate. Everything okay?

Nate: [ Breathes deeply ] I quit.

Elena: What?

Nate: I left my job at chancellor-winters.

Elena: Okay. Wow. Uh, the last time we talked about it, you said you were gonna to stay and try to work things out.

Nate: It was spontaneous. No notice and, uh, not on the best terms.

Elena: Nate. What happened?

Nate: More of the same. Devon admonishes me like a child, doesn’t give me credit, doesn’t trust me. He says I need to be a team player, but it doesn’t seem like he wants me on his team. And I couldn’t take it anymore.

[ Scoffs ] Even when lily and billy agree with me, devon’s need to control the situation surfaces. So I constantly have to acquiesce or not have a say at all. And this time, lily insisted we stay in the room and try to figure things out. And you know what? That made it easier for everyone, and I walked out.

Elena: [ Sighs ] Nate, I was hoping you would at least keep your familial connections intact.

Nate: You weren’t there, elena. Devon did not give me a choice. And honestly, it’s not up to me alone to keep the peace.

Jack: For you.

Diane: Thank you. That’s exactly what I need.

Jack: Oh, I aim to please.

Diane: Mm.

Jack: So, what upset you today?

Diane: Oh, it was nothing.

Jack: Well, it had to be something if you mentioned it.

Diane: Things just got a little crazy at the office, but you don’t need to know the details.

Jack: Is something going on at marchetti I should know about?

Diane: Oh, no, no. The work is good. It’s just…some of the people. Or, should I say, one person.

Jack: I see.

Diane: I’ve tried, jack. I have. But being at the same company with phyllis is very challenging.

Jack: Sometimes we have to work alongside people with whom we do not see eye to eye.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Jack: The secret is to focus on the job. That’s the reason you’re there. The more focused you are, the easier it is to block out any interference with your goals.. I can handle phyllis. I can handle anything she dishes out. I’m not intimidated by her. I just hate the pressure that it puts on kyle and summer. They shouldn’t have to — to worry about their mothers in constant conflict at the office. Maybe me working for marchetti was a mistake.

Victor: You know, sweetheart, I think our relationship is so strong right now — and has been for a while — that I don’t care what deacon sharpe will come up with. He’s not gonna affect it. But I’m concerned about how your visiting him and meeting with him will affect you.

Nikki: I don’t like the person that I was back then. You and I would go out of our way to hurt each other over and over. We’d make decisions on hurt feelings and misinformation. It was just a terrible time in my life. And deacon sharpe was front and center.

Victor: I know. I love you. Lots of ups and downs then, okay? A lot of things that affected our relationship. You know, if there’s one thing i could do again, it is go back in time, erase all the pain that I’ve caused you.

Nikki: I know. The feeling is mutual.

Victor: But, having said that, if you feel so trepidatious about your trip to california, then why the hell don’t you stay here?

Nikki: No, victor, I have to go. I mean, I know seeing him is going to be very unpleasant, but he is the only one who has information that I need.

Victor: Oh. About that damn diane jenkins?

Nikki: Yes. Damn diane jenkins. You know, back when she was “killed,” I thought that deacon was trying to help me avoid jail time for a crime that I didn’t commit. Come to find out there was no murder and deacon knew about it the entire time.

Sally: I did not need to hear that right now.

Adam: Look, sally, why don’t you sit with me and we can figure this out?

Sally: No. I prefer to stand. Thank you very much.

Adam: You know, since we’ve been apart…I’ve seen you, sally. I’ve seen how strong you are, how well you are doing.

Sally: And you hate that?

Adam: I love that. Seeing you succeed makes me think I made the right decision. I mean, it was wrong to do it unilaterally. I know that was a mistake. I know that now.

Sally: Oh, god. Finally. I mean, it took you long enough.

Adam: Look, when we were together, we worked so well together personally and professionally. I mean, we supported each other in a way that nobody else has supported either one of us before. And I’m committed to getting that back.

Sally: Adam —

Adam: With both of us at different companies now, you at newman media and me at jabot, we can avoid the work/family conflict. I mean, that was always the problem.

Sally: So, what? Now, in your mind, we go right back to being together again?

Adam: No. No, I meant when I said. I — I want to earn your forgiveness… and maybe someday earn your love again. Come on, sally. We have so much more potential. I know you’ve realized that I’m a jerk, and maybe I am beyond forgiveness… but are you really ready to throw away what we had? Ughh!

“The young and the restless”

will continue. Can you imagine a world where moms and kids agreed

Sally: Your timing could not be worse.

Adam: Really?

Sally: Yes.

[ Exhales heavily ] I… I shouldn’t even tell you this right now because you — you don’t deserve my honesty at this point.

Adam: Uh, well… what’s going on?

Sally: [ Breathing heavily ] Earlier today, I made an error in judgment.

[ Sighs ] I can’t even believe this happened. I missed a very important meeting because I was at the rooftop bar with you.

Adam: [ Exhales sharply ]

Sally: I prioritized spending time with you, the man who broke my heart and caused me so much pain, and I neglected my job and my own ambition.

Adam: Sally, I — I had no idea.

Sally: Yeah, of course. How could you? I mean, why would you pay attention to anything that doesn’t center around you?

Adam: That’s not entirely fair.

Sally: It’s almost like — it’s almost like missing that meeting wasn’t entirely an accident. It’s like part of my brain wanted to believe that the meeting was actually later so that I could spend time with you. Being with you is intoxicating and apparently prevents me from thinking rationally.

Adam: And I feel the same way about you.

Sally: Yeah, but that’s not a good thing, adam. We can’t act like irresponsible teenagers. We are adults. We have responsibilities. When I was at that rooftop bar with you, it’s like I had this nagging feeling that — that — that I was missing something, and instead of looking into it, I just ignored it. And I chose instead to hang out with the man who shows me little respect.

Adam: Yes, I admit my treatment of you has been unacceptable.

Sally: Yes, it has. And I have continued to put up with it and — and neglect my own well-being. It’s like you’re an addiction. It’s not healthy. It’s toxic. And letting you in, letting you get to me was a huge mistake.

Victor: To be very honest with you, I would love to take care of that bastard deacon sharpe all by myself, if you’d let me.

Nikki: It’s not your fight, victor. It’s mine.

Victor: But, darling, that’s not quite true. That man has done a lot of damage to you, to me, to our family, okay? I’ll just — I’ll ride on the plane with you.

Nikki: I know you would, but I need to do this on my own. And even though I have reservations about this trip, you and I are in a better place than we’ve ever been. I’m not worried about us at all. And there is nothing deacon or anybody else can do to take anything from us.

Victor: But what if someone tried, sweetheart?

Nikki: Let them.

Victor: Good. I like that. And they better not.

Elena: Honestly, I’m relieved you left chancellor-winters. You’ve been so unhappy.

Nate: Mm. I’m glad you understand why i left.

Elena: Yeah, and I am sure a better opportunity will present itself soon. When one door closes —

Nate: Another door opens. And I’m pretty sure I know where that leads.

Elena: What do you mean? Do you have another job lined up?

Nate: Not exactly.

Elena: What are you saying?

Nate: I think I’ve figured out a way to make it clear to devon and everyone else at chancellor-winters just how capable and forward-thinking I really am.

Elena: [ Sighs ] I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Adam: I think — I think you’re right, okay? My clumsy attempts to reconnect with you — they have been selfish and they have been poorly conceived. But there is something between us, sally. You’ve said so yourself.

Sally: But things have changed.

[ Sighs ]

Adam: Look, I’m sorry. I am sorry for monopolizing your schedule today. That was inconsiderate of me. But our time together was not a waste. It was an investment in us, in our future. And I know that you feel the same way.

Sally: There are a lot of things that I need to invest in right now. And unfortunately… you cannot be one of them. You understand business. There are assets and liabilities. Right now, you are a huge liability to me, with no foreseeable return on investment.

Adam: You’re speaking to me in a language I understand.

Sally: I know. I have learned some things. Running a media company is very different than running my little fashion house. I no longer get to set my own schedule. I have a lot resting on my shoulders, and not just with the company, but also the livelihood of all of its employees. Focusing on my love life right now is not something that I can do. I mean, just having a conversation with you has negatively affected my work. I just need to clear my head and refocus.

Adam: I see. I see. So, is this what you and nick were talking about in his office? Losing your focus?

Jack: I disagree with your conclusion that you should leave marchetti. Why give up now? Kyle wants you there. If the whole goal is to build the bond between mother and son, this is the way to do it. Stick to your plan.

Diane: [ Sighs ] Well, getting closer to kyle has been wonderful, but today —

Jack: You said yourself i don’t need to know the details of what happened. Look, I have faith that kyle will make the right decision. You should, too.

Diane: I do.

Jack: So let him make the decision. It’s what’s best for the company. It’s what’s best for strengthening the bond between mother and son.

[ Mug thuds ]

Diane: You’ve become very wise.

Jack: Maybe it just seems that way relative to how unwise I was in my youth.

Diane: [ Laughs ] Well, thank you for your advice. You know, things are a little complicated, but I think you’re right.

Jack: I think maybe at this stage in our lives, we should give in to the idea that life is, if nothing else, complicated.

Diane: Yeah, that’s an understatement. And I want to stay at marchetti. I want to prove that I’m up to the challenge. And it’s not just for kyle anymore.

Jack: No?

Diane: No. It’s for you, too.

Nikki: You know, even though I have apprehension about this trip, I think that it will be very productive. If there is anything illegal in diane’s past, deacon will know about that. He was instrumental in her schemes here, so he’s sure to know something about her time in los angeles.

Victor: But, sweetheart, why don’t you allow me to send my team to california and bring that bastard back to genoa city?

Nikki: What do you mean? Kidnap him?

[ Glass thuds ]

Victor: Well, I didn’t say that, but, you know, offer him a first-class round trip.

Nikki: Victor, you are not going to talk me out of this trip to L.A.

Victor: You are so stubborn. Okay. I give in. You’re going to california to find out from deacon sharpe all you can about diane jenkins so we can finally send that woman the hell out of town, right?

Sally: What nick and i discussed is of no concern to you. It was a business matter.

Adam: I’m just asking to make sure they’re not going to fire you, sally. Missing a meeting might be all they need.

Sally: I really don’t want to get…into what happened with nick, especially not with you.

Adam: What does that mean, especially not with me?

Sally: Because you don’t work for the company, obviously. In fact, you know what? I-I think it’s just best if — if we avoided each other right now.

Adam: I don’t think that’s necessary.

Sally: You know what? Just finish your drink, go back to your room, and I think we should just call this goodbye for now.

Adam: You’re dismissing me?

Sally: Well, I’m — I’m asking you to leave.

Adam: Alright. It’s your room, your rules.

[ Glass clanks ]

[ Sniffs ]

[ Breathes deeply ] Look, I know that you are saying the things that you feel you need to say, the things to get you through the pain that I have caused you, but… I’m asking you to listen to your heart again. I know how deeply you feel, even when you do your best to pretend like you don’T. It’s one of the things I love about you. I realize I hurt you, sally. But I meant every word that i said today. This entire time, I thought that I was protecting you. But I realize how stupid that was. I was wrong, and I am aware of that. And through the whole thing… I never stopped loving you. And I don’t think that love went away for you any more than it did for me. This book has helped me reach so many young homeowners

Elena: Nate. No. You cannot do this.

Nate: Why not?

Elena: It’s a horrible plan.

Nate: Which part?

Elena: All of it.

Nate: I can’t believe this. Once again, you are not supporting me.

Elena: Of course I support you, but sometimes that means letting you know when you’re making a mistake.

Nate: I am building a new career. Unfortunately, that’s not always gonna be easy. You were the one who said i should walk away from chancellor-winters in the first place.

Elena: Not like this.

Nate: Okay, so you don’t like the way I’m taking a step back? The truth is, you never wanted me to leave medicine, so i shouldn’t be surprised you’re hesitant now.

Elena: That is not what this is about, and you know it. I just find it extremely hard to believe that you going through with this plan is gonna get you where you need to go.

Nate: I don’t expect you to always agree with me, but I need you to understand where I am coming from. I honestly have no other viable options.

Elena: Nate, I have been by your side on this path from the beginning, and I have been willing to follow you down this journey, wherever it may lead, but this is going too far. You would be compromising your integrity, and that shouldn’t be a part of business, especially a family business.

Nate: Everything I am doing is justified after what devon put me through.

Elena: I don’t think that’s true. This is not just about you and devon. Other people could be affected. This is wrong. And I want to believe, in your heart, you know it’s wrong. Come on, nate. You need to think this through.

Jack: In what way does your desire to stay at marchetti involve me?

Diane: I’ll tell you. Remember when I said that i hoped that we could become friends?

Jack: Mm-hmm.

Diane: Well, I take pride in us getting closer to that goal. I mean, come on. Look at us. Could you have imagined us sitting here like this a couple months ago?

Jack: No, I definitely could not.

Diane: No.

Jack: But this is nice.

Diane: It is nice. And I do take pride in how far we’ve come. But maybe I shouldn’t since pride is one of the deadly sins.

Jack: [ Laughs ] I think we have all fallen prey to pride.

Diane: [ Laughs ]

Jack: I want you to know i truly admire your determination to prove you’ve changed.

Diane: Thank you. I probably should get home.

Jack: Oh, okay.

Diane: Yeah, I have another big day at the office tomorrow.

Jack: Oh! I had no idea how late it was. Look, if — if you don’t feel like driving, you can stay in one of the guest rooms.

Diane: I should probably go. But thank you for your hospitality, jack. Good night.

Jack: Good night.

Victor: I will have my security team follow you every step while you’re in L.A.

Nikki: I told victoria you would insist on that.

Victor: You bet.

Nikki: But, darling, please make sure they’re discreet. I don’t want them to spook deacon.

Victor: Sweetheart, at the sign of any trouble, they will be there for you, alright?

Nikki: I’m sure it won’t come to that. But I’m glad for the extra sense of security.

[ Both smooch ]

Victor: After what happened to victoria, we can’t be careful enough, my darling. And you know damn well family means everything to me.

Nikki: That’s why I love you.

[ Smooches ]

Nick: Vick, you here?

[ Sighs ]

[ Cellphone vibrating ]

Sally: [ Sighs ]

[ Sniffles ]

Adam: Something important?

Sally: Huh?

Adam: The text.

Sally: [ Sniffles ] It’s none of your concern.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] Maybe not, but I can’t help but be curious.

Sally: Adam, you are looking for answers and chances that i just can’t give you. I need time. And space. [ Sighs ] So, you know what? I think — I think it’s best that you just go.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Sally: [ Sniffles ]

[ Door slams ]

[ Exhales sharply ]
