Chloe: I come in peace. I got you some cappuccinos and, well, your favorite pastries from that italian place that you love.
Sally: What’s the occasion?
Chloe: Oh… I just wanted to make up for the way I acted yesterday.
Sally: What way was that?
Chloe: Chewing you out about adam. I — I said some things that i just — I wish I hadn’T.
Sally: I see.
Chloe: So, this is me trying to apologize. You know, I just want to put things behind us and start over. And when it comes to adam, we can just agree to disagree. As long as you can keep your personal life separate from your work and not miss any more important meetings, I think that —
[ Sighs ] You know, I’m — I’m sorry again. I really didn’t mean to go there. I feel like I’ve been scolding you all the time lately, and it’s not appropriate or professional, and it’s not conducive to our being friends. Are we on the same page?
Sally: About what?
Chloe: Starting fresh. Let’s just put adam aside, eat a pastry, and, you know, tackle all of this work that we have to get to. Sound good?
Sally: Yeah. Yeah, you’re right. Um, I should immerse myself in work. But to do that, there is something that I — I need to take care of first.
Chloe: [ Sighs ]
[ Knock on door ]
Victoria: Hi. Morning yourself. I was hoping that you would be in early. I was just going over some of the final details of some of the acquisitions that we’ve made, including who’s gonna be running them once they’ve been absorbed into newman enterprises.
Nick: Any preliminary thoughts?
Victoria: Well, I’m — I’m still very intrigued by the idea of nate hastings. I did a little recon about the state of play at chancellor-winters with billy, and it turns out that things have been tense over there for a while. So maybe nate — maybe he really is leaving.
Nick: Happened to run into nate at society last night.
Nick: Seems like he’s ready for a change.
Victoria: Interesting. The only problem is, how do we utilize him?
Nick: Do we have a place for him in any of our new acquisitions?
Victoria: Well, if I had an obvious fit, I’d make an offer to him right now, but unfortunately, most of the senior roles are requiring specialized expertise.
Nick: Why can’t we just create a position then, just to get him in the door?
Victoria: Anything’s possible. I think I’ll give it some thought. So, moving on to our other employees, how are things with sally?
Nick: In what sense?
Victoria: I’m assuming that you put her on notice since she blew off that marketing summit yesterday. Don’t you dare tell me that you accepted her apology and let it go. Did you?
Devon: Alright, who else we waiting on?
Lily: Uh, no one. Billy is dealing with an issue with the ad agency, so I’ll fill him in later.
Devon: Alright. I take it from your message that you want to discuss nate quitting?
Lily: Well, I’m still hoping that he will change his mind and cool off, but in the event that he doesn’t, I want to know what our exposure could be.
Devon: And what do you mean by exposure?
Lily: Well, what are the legal and business ramifications of your coo’s abrupt departure? I mean, we don’t know. Did he sign an nda? Is there a non-compete clause in his contract? I mean, can he take ideas that he developed here to another company?
Imani: You mean all of those great ideas you two shot down?
[ Scoffs ] Guys, I can’t believe what I’m hearing. The guy’s chair isn’t even cold yet, and here you are starting to talk about legal ramifications? So, what, neither one of you is gonna try to talk to him, try to smooth things over? Is that how this family operates?
Devon: Imani, how come you’re being so defensive of nate?
Imani: [ Scoffs ] Because clearly someone has to be.
Nate: [ Exhales heavily ]
[ Groans lightly ] What time is it?
Elena: I let you sleep in a bit.
Nate: [ Sighs ] Thanks for the tea.
Elena: I tossed and turned all night. Couldn’t sleep. I hate when we argue.
Nate: Yeah. So do I.
Elena: Look, I understand that you are under a lot of stress. I know quitting your job is not a decision that you came to lightly. And I wish it weren’t necessary, but I get that you feel like you were at the end of your rope.
Nate: I’d say I was beyond the end.
Elena: So I want you to know that I want to be here to support you. And I also want to help you move on to your next opportunity, whatever that may be… and repair your relationship with your family. I’m hoping, after a good night’s rest, you want that, too, and that you’ve changed your mind about going forward with the plan that you shared with me?
Nate: On the contrary. I’m more resolved about that than ever.
provided by… my blood pressure is borderline.
Elena: Nate. Please do not do this. You left chancellor-winters on your own terms. Can you just leave it at that? You can do anything you want now. You’re not under devon’s control anymore. But if you go further with this plan, it’s only gonna cause more trouble.
Nate: So be it. I highly doubt devon and I can get past this conflict.
Elena: Okay, so, what about lily? She’s been doing nothing but trying to keep the peace. She brought you into this company. She gave you a chance. And she’s been backing you up.
Nate: Only to a point. And in the end, she’ll side with devon each and every time, leaving me the odd man out.
Elena: So, what, you want to punish her, too?
Nate: [ Sighs ]
Elena: Have you even thought about how much this is going to hurt her? This feels so wrong to me.
Nate: And it feels so right to me.
Elena: [ Scoffs ] So, here we are, arguing and fighting again.
Nate: Because you’ve misconstrued my motives. I’d be helping lily because, ultimately, I would be helping chancellor-winters, the family business lily fought so hard to create. Elena, I am out to succeed. I am an asset, not a liability. That’s what no one seems to understand.
Elena: Except for imani?
Nate: She’s helped me to see my value. My ideas are strong, and I am forward-thinking. What is wrong with that?
Elena: There’s nothing wrong with being a visionary. But this is not what you’re talking about.
Nate: [ Sighs ] I disagree. My ideas are big, and this is the right move for me to make, so I’m not gonna stop. This is my time. And it’s the best way I can see to make a lasting mark so I can finally take control.
Elena: So then that’s it? You’re determined, and there’s no talking you out of it?
Nate: My mind’s made up, and I’m gonna set things in motion today.
Lily: Imani, we are a strong family. We have tried to work things out with nate, and we will continue to do so. But as the leaders of this company, it is our responsibility to know where things stand when it comes to the intellectual property that nate has been overseeing. And as a lawyer, you should know this. I mean, amanda does. She’s the one who told us to confirm these details.
Imani: Okay, well, the best way to protect our intellectual property is to keep nate around. Guys, he is such an asset to this company. He’s got strong ideas, a real passion for the work that we do. I’ve been trying to convince him to stay. And I think if we all put forth a genuine effort to make sure he knows he’s valued, he could be swayed.
Devon: Imani, I’m not gonna try and convince anyone to be here who doesn’t want to be here, okay? The man made up his mind. It’s not gonna change just because someone flatters him.
Imani: [ Scoffs ] That’s not what I said.
Devon: Well, either way, I do think it’s the best thing that he left ’cause he and I can never find common ground, and i didn’t see that changing.
Imani: Guys, this blows me away, how easy it is for you to just let nate go.
Lily: None of this has been easy. And I’m sorry, but I don’t know what you’re getting at.
Victoria: You’re hesitating, which means I’m right. You’re gonna let sally get away with this?
Nick: She made a mistake, vick.
Victoria: Oh, is that what we’re calling it?
Nick: I’m handling it, okay?
[ Knock on door, door opens ]
Sally: Victoria, I was hoping that you… have a minute?
Victoria: What can I do for you, sally?
Sally: I’m here to apologize to you directly for missing the meeting yesterday. I’m just making things right with the team.
Victoria: Yes, so I’ve heard.
Sally: Sometimes life encroaches on work, and I know you understand that as well as anyone. I’ve seen you handle a crisis in your personal life without missing a beat here at newman, and I’m seriously in awe of your ability to do that. But I feel like I have the inner resources and steely resolve that you have, so, in time, I’m confident that I will be able to emulate your example. But yesterday I screwed up, and it was my mistake. It will not happen again.
Nick: Sally, I need to speak to you about that other matter we got into yesterday. Do you have time for coffee?
Sally: I will make time. The abcs of ckd
Sally: Isn’t it gorgeous out?
Nick: Yeah. It’s nice to get outside and enjoy it.
Sally: Mm-hmm. Yeah, it’s the kind of day that just stimulates your senses and makes you feel alive and excited.
[ Both chuckle ]
Nick: You know, you don’t have to do that with me, sally. Try and make small talk. We can be honest with each other.
Sally: I don’t want things to be weird at work.
Nick: Me either.
Sally: Adam came to see me last night after our weird dinner.
[ Both chuckle ]
Nick: You mean after i dropped you off at your place?
Sally: Yeah. He made some — I guess you would call them declarations. And they messed with my head. They made me feel pretty conflicted.
Adam: Is sally around?
Chloe: Uh, she got called into a meeting with nick. That’s all I know.
Adam: When I was ceo, I don’t think I interacted once with the newman coos. At least, not about work.
Chloe: Maybe because it was nikki, who wanted nothing to do with you, much like me. So, if you could please make yourself scarce.
Adam: Are nick and victoria keeping a heavier hand on the day-to-day operations? And if so, why? What could that mean?
Chloe: What are you getting at?
Adam: I’m just wondering.
Chloe: If you’re trying to insinuate that they don’t trust our new leadership, just say it.
Lily: Imani, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have snapped at you.
Imani: Obviously, we all feel strongly about this.
Lily: Yes, we do. And just for the record, I have not given up on nate. I will continue to try to talk to him. And I hope that you will keep an open mind in case I can win him over — ’cause this whole thing has spiraled completely out of control and at the worst possible time.
Devon: Why are you concerned about the timing of it?
Lily: Because I think that, you know, what jill suggested is the right way to go.
Devon: Well, let’s hang on a second ’cause —
Lily: Well — [ Stammers ] Look, let’s just pretend that nate isn’t coming back, okay? So, please look into his contract and let us know what we’re up against.
Imani: Done. I will track down information on the nda and non-compete, if they exist. But thank you. Thanks for not giving up on him yet. See you guys later, okay?
[ Clears throat ]
Lily: [ Scoffs ] I mean, i wasn’t expecting that kind of pushback.
Devon: Yeah, I think that, uh — I think she has a thing for nate.
Lily: Uh, yeah, you think?
[ Scoffs ] Uh, look, also, um, when we talk about the ipo, let’s just keep it between us, billy, and jill.
Devon: Well, you talk about it like it’s already a done deal. Do I not have a say anymore or…?
Lily: What do you mean? Of course you have a say. We’re equal partners.
Devon: Then why does it sound like you’ve already made up your mind and you’re siding with jill?
Lily: I’m not siding with anybody.
Devon: Okay. What do you want to call it?
Lily: Look, all that’s happening is that there’s a possibility of an ipo on the table, and we’re in the beginning stages of exploring it.
Devon: Right. I just think that you’re about to make an impulsive decision about something that’s really important.
Devon: Yes. Impulsive.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Okay. You know, I don’t appreciate you challenging my decision-making process just because it’s different from yours.
Devon: It’s not just ’cause it’s different from mine. I know I’m not the only one that has concerns about going public. Billy feels the way I feel, doesn’t he?
Lily: Yeah, of course, but, devon, I mean, we have to sit down and hash things out — and get approval from the board, which could take a long time.
Devon: Well, I hope it does.
Lily: Look, this is between us, okay? It’s our responsibility to make this decision. It’s our decision, yours and mine.
Devon: And jill’s, too. There’s three people involved, two of them are on board, and I’m the only one who’s hesitant. So I’m on my own in this.
Lily: [ Sighs heavily ]
[ Folder thuds ] For copd,
Adam: Chloe, calm down. I’m not insinuating anything. I’m just asking a question. Why are you so quick to assume you and sally are on the chopping block? Has she said anything about it?
Chloe: Okay, well, if you must know, it’s because she missed a very important meeting yesterday because she was with you.
Chloe: Yes. I know all about it.
Adam: She told me about her scheduling gaffe when I was with her last night, and I — I felt terrible, okay? The last thing I want to do is cause more problems for her, chloe.
Chloe: The two of you were with each other again? Twice in one day?
Adam: You broke up with her, and you crushed her. She was confused. And then she finally starts feeling like herself again and she gets her stride back and then you just come out of the woodworks and start causing problems. Do you not understand how cruel that is? Or do you just not care? Why are you so compelled to always destroy every single person you were ever in a relationship with?
Adam: Enough! I don’t need this kind of abuse from you, chloe. And my personal life is none of your business.
Chloe: Well, when you hurt my friend, it is my business.
Adam: And for the record, i only have sally’s best interests at heart. Not that I will ever convince you of that.
Chloe: No. You sure as hell won’T.
Adam: Okay. I’m out of here, alright?
Chloe: [ Sighs ]
[ Cup thuds ]
[ Sighs ]
Nick: I don’t think I need to ask you what adam’s declarations were about.
Sally: I’m sure you don’T. ‘Cause he made it pretty clear where he stands last night during our awkward conversation at society.
Nick: I know I’ve been trying to warn you off him.
Sally: You and everyone else in this town.
Nick: Look, I know that you had — well, you have very strong feelings about my brother. And I don’t want to make things more difficult for you if you’re trying to get back together with him.
Sally: I-I’m not saying that that’s where things are headed, you know? Or even if that’s something that I’d want —
Nick: Look, I don’t think we should talk about adam. I understand messy and complicated love. But that is for the two of you to sort out, without me being any kind of factor whatsoever.
[ Knock on door ]
Victoria: What is it?
Adam: I’m looking for sally. I heard she had a meeting with nick, and they weren’t in his office.
Victoria: Oh. You just missed them. I think they stepped out to grab some coffee. Shouldn’t you be settling into your new position at jabot? I guess if you have all this free time to be chasing around after your ex, it’s not that important of a job. It was probably a mercy offering from jack since he’s one of the few people who can still tolerate you in this town.
Adam: Oh, it’s a real job. Mm-hmm. And I have a lot on my plate. But, uh, I am capable of multi-tasking.
Victoria: Unlike sally?
Adam: What’s that supposed to mean?
Victoria: Well, if you were actually in touch with her, you know damn well what that means. She was supposed to give a presentation at a marketing summit yesterday, and she completely blew it off. Chloe had to step in for her. This is not a behavior that i value in one of my ceos.
Adam: Do you have any idea why sally was a no-show?
Victoria: Well, luckily i have my coo to take care of my personnel issues. Nicholas got into it with her. Something about extenuating circumstances, the fact that it would never happen again, which remains to be seen.
Adam: Well, one missed meeting shouldn’t make or break someone’s career, victoria.
Victoria: Oh, I agree with that in theory. But I also know that people are replaceable, which is something that I hope nick is making very clear to sally right now.
Imani: Ah. You want some company? Sure, you do.
Nate: Eating and running. Busy day ahead.
Imani: Hmm. You’re not the only one. Trust me. Lily decided to call an emergency meeting at the crack of dawn.
Nate: Emergency for what?
Imani: You. Seems the powers that be are shaken up by your resignation.
Nate: Devon, too?
Imani: Mm, not that he’d ever admit it. Look, I tried to reason with him, encouraged him to reach out, talk things through, but you were right. He is very stubborn.
Nate: That’s one way to put it.
Imani: [ Chuckles ] Now, lily, on the other hand, seems to want to work things out for you to return. I think she’s going to lean on him and kind of —
Nate: I’m gonna stop you there. I know what you’re trying to do.
Imani: Standing up for you to the head honchos?
Nate: Which I appreciate. But I believe I have a much better, more powerful solution, thanks to you.
Imani: Mm. Do tell.
Nate: You suggested I think more — what was the word? — Ruthlessly. Well, I’m planning on taking your advice starting today.
Who’s on it with jardiance?
“The young and the restless”
What can you do
with sensitive skin?
[ Bottle thuds ]
Elena: Ooh! Whoa! Sorry.
Devon: Oh. So sorry. No. It’s my fault. I wasn’t paying attention at all.
Elena: Obviously, I wasn’t, either.
Devon: My bad. Hey, can I get a coffee to go, please? Thank you.
Elena: Hey, is everything alright?
[ Chuckles ] I’ve been better. How about you?
Devon: I’ll give you one guess as to who’s got us both down.
Elena: Yeah. Let’s just say nate is on a path that does not make me happy.
Devon: Well, I’m sorry to hear that ’cause I know he quit so he wouldn’t have to keep bumping heads with me. And I feel bad about that ’cause when I hired him, I had every intention of it working out.
Elena: I know you did.
Devon: Honestly, though, i really think this is probably the best ’cause, you know, on paper working side by side looked good, but we have very different philosophies.
Elena: That’s for sure.
Devon: I hope this isn’t causing you any stress at home.
Lily: Hi. Sorry.
Lily: I don’t mean to interrupt. I just need to speak with you privately.
Devon: You need to talk right this second?
Lily: Yeah, that would be great.
Elena: It’s okay. I actually need to get going. It was good to see you both.
Devon: Yeah, you too. I promise we’ll catch up.
Adam: Victoria, you’re overreacting. If sally says she’s not gonna make a particular mistake again, you can take that to the bank. She’s conscientious to a fault. She’s hungry to succeed here.
Victoria: Why are you still advocating for your ex? I thought you broke up with her. I thought you were the one who ended things. If your continued presence in her life is causing this distraction, for the love of god, why don’t you just let her go? I mean, if you really, really care about her, why don’t you just let her get on with her life?
Adam: I am just so sick of everybody telling me that, victoria. I’m trying to right a wrong. Isn’t that what civilized, evolved people do?
Victoria: Yes, but I’m —
[ Chuckling ] I’m sorry. Is that what you’re claiming to be now?
Adam: I’m trying to prove that is what I am now.
Victoria: Oh. And you really expect me to believe that — that you love the woman?
Adam: I learned a long time ago not to expect anything from you. But, yes, I do love sally. And I made a terrible mistake thinking that I was helping her, and I’m trying to fix that. I guess you can’t understand admitting that you screwed up. You just like to forge ahead, pretend like you didn’t leave a wake of destruction. So I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that you have no clue where I’m coming from.
Sally: Yeah, I need to steer clear of any complications ’cause I realized by letting myself get distracted yesterday, I put everything in jeopardy. My judgment hasn’t been great, as you know. So I just need to keep my attention laser-focused on newman media. What was it that you texted me yesterday? “Ceos miss meetings sometimes.”
Nick: Yeah. Everyone slips up once in a while.
Sally: Yeah, well, I can’t afford to. I mean, not now that victoria’s so ticked off at me. But I do appreciate your understanding. You know, I think you and i should have the same for each other in this moment.
Nick: Yeah. Yeah. So, should we head back to the office?
[ Door bangs ]
[ Door closes ]
[ Both breathing heavily ]
[ Belt clatters ] At metro by t-mobile… you can save more.
[ Keys clacking ]
Nate: Your focus is impressive. I admire that, when someone can lose themselves in their work like that. I’m the same way.
[ Chuckles ]
Victoria: What brings you by, nate?
[ Door closes ]
Nate: I have a proposal that I believe will be of great interest to you.
[ Both breathing heavily ]
Sally: W-well, that did not go according to plan.
Nick: No, not at all.
Sally: [ Exhales sharply ] I did not intend for this to happen again, I-I swear. I didn’t even think it was a possibility.
Nick: I mean, this, uh — this attraction, whatever it is we’re calling it… I never thought in a million years.
Sally: A billion years.
Nick: [ Sighs ] Pentillion?
Nick: [ Clicks tongue ]
Sally: Closely followed by sextillion. I kid you not.
Nick: [ Smooches ] Remind me never to go up against you in trivia night.
Sally: [ Chuckles ] What can I say? I have expertise in all sorts of areas you would never expect.
Nick: This is, um… unexpected. Surprising.
Sally: Well, we could analyze it to death, or we could just order some room service, grab a shower… eat lunch, and… get back to work.
Lily: I know that we need to have a serious conversation about the possibility of going public, but I feel like there’s something more pressing right now.
Devon: You’d like to talk about nate some more?
Lily: Yeah. Um, I am really upset that the tension between you two has gotten to the point where nate feels like his only option is to quit.
Devon: Yeah. So do I. Do you blame me for it?
Lily: I mean, frankly, yeah, I kind of do. And, look, I’m not saying that he’s blameless because he’s not, you know? But I feel like there’s something going on inside of your head where you won’t accept anything that he has to offer, even when he addresses your concerns. I just — I-I feel like you’re being unfair to him.
Devon: I don’t know where you’re getting that from ’cause I listen to everything he says.
Lily: Hold on. Let me just — wait. Let me just — I’m sorry. Let me just finish ’cause I just want to get this out.
Lily: [ Sighs ] I wanted to do this merger because I wanted to build on what you and dad had created. I wanted to build something for our family. And so I don’t want to lose nate. I can’t lose him, okay? So, please, devon, please — I just need you to consider your part in this. Like, why? Why is it so hard for you to let him have a win every once in a while?
Devon: That’s not what it is.
Lily: Okay. Then what is it? I mean, what — just tell me. I mean, have you been autonomous for so long that maybe it’s hard for you to, you know, give up a little bit of control? ‘Cause if that’s the case, I get it. You’ve had control over things for a long time, especially the music side. So, you know, it can be hard to delegate, and that’s fine. That’s totally fine. If that’s the case, let’s talk about it. Let’s figure it out. We’ll work it out. Or, what, is it deeper than that? I mean, are you subconsciously trying to punish nate for what happened with elena?
Victoria: A proposal? Well, that sounds intriguing.
Nate: First, some news. Jill’s informed upper management that she wants to take chancellor-winters public.
Victoria: That’s a very big move for a family company. I mean, particularly one that’s merged so recently.
Nate: Devon’s first knee-jerk reaction was to say no. Typical. Billy seemed hesitant. But lily’s all-in. I believe she and jill will prevail.
Victoria: Did jill say why she was proposing this?
Nate: The usual reason — to raise capital for a rapid expansion. Meanwhile, I know you’ve been on a shopping spree for newman.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ] I guess you could say that.
Nate: I’m willing to be your inside man feeding you information, anything that can be helpful so you can be ready to make your move.
Victoria: Are you suggesting what I think you are?
Nate: You can buy up shares for newman, gain majority control of the company. Smooth dark chocolate, refreshing peppermint,
Devon: Lily, nate and I got past that situation with elena a long time ago. This isn’t some kind of payback. And I’m not a vindictive person, so it doesn’t feel great that you would imply that about me.
Lily: Okay. I’m sorry. I-I am. I just — [ Sighs ] I mean, come on. I’m trying to figure this out to keep our family from falling apart.
Devon: I understand completely what you’re trying to do. I just don’t know what to tell you. I really don’T. I mean, you know what? Maybe there’s some truth to what you’re saying about my leadership skills. I know it’s my instinct to take charge. I tend to think I know what’s best, which I guess can be annoying to some people, but that’s only because of all the experience I have. I’ve been working in the business world since I was a teenager, with neil. You know this. I know what to look for. And I usually can see the pitfalls about 10 steps ahead of any idea nate brings to me.
Lily: I know that. I know. And I get it. That’s fine. But, I mean, sometimes people have to make their own mistakes. It can’t always be you, you know, showing someone the next dangerous curve ahead.
Devon: So, what you’re saying is that, in order to get nate to believe that I know more about business than he does, I need to be more open to his ideas and give him the opportunity to fail.
Victoria: Well, I have to say, I’m — I’m completely stunned that you would come here to tell me this. Why would you help newman gain a controlling share of chancellor-winters?
Nate: You said you admired my ideas, my energy, my skills. You know I’m ambitious, driven to make a mark in the business world, to prove this is where i can shine.
Victoria: And you think that feeding me insider information is the way to do that.
Nate: You want to find a place for me at newman? Well, this is the place I want. I’ll help you acquire chancellor-winters shares if you put me in control of the company.
Victoria: You would that to your own family?
Sally: [ Sighs ] Have you seen my phone?
Nick: Right here.
Sally: Geez. Just kick them both under the bed, why don’t you?
Nick: Don’t tempt me.
Sally: Anything important?
Nick: No. You?
Sally: Nothing that can’t wait. I should get back to the office, though. Room service is taking forever. So, do you mind if I cancel?
[ Knock on door ]
Nick: Must be them now.
Sally: Hallelujah. I thought that you’d forgotten about me.
Next week on “the young and the restless”…
Adam: Are you sleeping with my brother?
Kyle: Summer newman abbott, will you make me the happiest man in genoa city? Will you marry me again?
Deacon: You know, I got to admit, I’ve — I’ve thought a lot about you over the years, you know, all the things that we went through together.
Nikki: Is that right?
Deacon: Absolutely. I wondered how you were doing. Oh, and, nik, one more thing. You look good.
