Summer: [ Sighs ]
Kyle: Tell me, mrs. Abbott.
Summer: Ah. Ask away, mr. Abbott.
Kyle: What was your favorite memory of today?
Summer: Oh, no. See, that is a trick question because you know I have more than one.
Kyle: Mm. You have to choose.
Summer: Okay, if I have to choose, I’d say my top moment would be harrison holding my hand as he walked me down the aisle to you.
Kyle: [ Chuckles ] That was mine, too.
Summer: And what about mariah and tessa and noah all officiating together? You know, if somebody had told me five years ago that mariah and I would be something close to friends, I…
[ Sighs ] But there she was, saying the most romantic words.
Kyle: The way things have changed for us, even in the past year, made today that much more special. And all of the people who couldn’t be in milan…
Summer: They were here today. I mean, our wedding in italy was so sweet. It was so intimate.
Kyle: But there is nothing like home.
Summer: [ Sighs ] I’m so glad we recommitted to each other.
Summer: You know, they say that the most difficult year of marriage is the first. And we did everything to the extreme. Harrison came into our life, and I went to work in italy.
Kyle: And I chased you halfway around the globe. And that was even before we said “I do.”
Summer: But here we are. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Kyle: Mm. You know, years from now, when i look back on today, how beautiful you look in this dress and how happy we are, i will conveniently forget that tucker mccall crashed our party in a helicopter.
Summer: Yeah. Positive thoughts only. You know, I wouldn’t be surprised if that bentley he tried to gift us is cursed.
[ Sighs ]
[ Glasses clink ]
Nikki: I just can’t shake the feeling that tucker and diane were involved while she was playing dead.
Phyllis: Well, with those two, anything’s possible.
Nikki: I’m gonna see if victor’s people can find a connection between those two during the time she was being chauffeured around L.A. In that bentley.
[ Knocking on door ]
[ Pounding on door ]
Tucker: Yes! Geez.
Diane: [ Exhales sharply ]
Tucker: Ah, come on in. Make yourself at home.
Diane: Just what the hell was that insanity? A helicopter on the abbott lawn? What were you thinking?
Tucker: Well, I was in a hurry. I didn’t want to miss the festivities.
[ Chuckles ] And I do enjoy making an entrance.
Diane: This isn’t just about you.
Nate: Um…how are you settling in at the grand phoenix?
Elena: Uh, thank you for asking.
[ Chuckles ] I am feeling decidedly unsettled.
Nate: You’re the one who said you wanted some distance to think about things.
Elena: And you ended up agreeing with me. In fact, you fully supported the idea.
Nate: Did you want me to demand that you stay, try to talk things out? Emotions were running high. I didn’t want us to say things we’d end up regretting.
Elena: Yeah. I think it was the best decision for both of us. It’s healthy to take a step back and reevaluate the situation.
Nate: I agree. So, um, how’s your introspection coming along? Has your time alone allowed you to see things from my perspective, understand where I’m coming from?
Elena: It’s only been one night, nate. But I have done nothing but think about it.
Elena: And I have realized that something in you has changed. And I don’t like it.
Victoria: Well, hello there, daddy. I didn’t expect you to be back so soon.
Victor: Hey, you two. So, how was my granddaughter’s vow renewal?
Nick: Even better than the wedding in milan.
Victoria: Wish you could have been there.
Nick: Summer understands, though. In this family, sometimes business comes first.
Victoria: So, tell us about your trip. Was it worth skipping the ceremony for?
Victor: Well, I secured the financing, so as soon as chancellor-winters goes public, we shall pounce.
Victoria: Yes. That’s wonderful.
Victor: So, what else happened? I’m sure jack abbott cast aspersions about me because I didn’t show up, right?
Nick: Jack is not the only person you need to be concerned about right now. Another one of genoa city’s corporate elites showed up and made a surprise appearance, caused quite the stir.
Nick: Tucker mccall.
Victor: Huh. I’ll be damned. Your spirit is stronger
Phyllis: I feel very positive about this. I’m certain that victor’s people are gonna find some connection between tucker and the company that owns the bentley that diane was being chauffeured around L.A. In. I mean, it is so suspicious that the two of them — they show up in town at the same time? Seriously?
Nikki: Especially since deacon told me that sometimes he would see a man in the back seat with her. Too bad he didn’t get a good look at his face.
Phyllis: We’re getting closer, nikki. We’re getting closer to the truth.
Nikki: Oh, yes. We are going to prove that she has been lying about being a changed woman.
Phyllis: Oh, yeah, we are. That is the million-dollar question.
Nikki: I’ll get back to you when I know more.
Summer: You like puzzles. I have one for you. We keep seeing my mother and my grandmother with their heads together. What are they up to?
Kyle: Secretly plotting to make you happy, just like I am. Eyes here on the handsome guy you just pledged your troth to.
Summer: Okay, I got to be honest. I-I don’t know what a troth is, so I might want to keep it for myself.
Kyle: Mm-hmm. Mm.
Summer: Okay. You convinced me. I’ll share it.
[ Both laugh ]
Kyle: Just like we will share everything else for the rest of our lives. To my beautiful bride, my hardworking wife, the journey we’ve taken, the people we’re becoming, and the adventures yet to come. I love you.
[ Glasses clink ]
Diane: You told me to trust you, to relax, and then you pull a stunt like that without any warning?
Tucker: Yeah. Do I need to explain the concept of a surprise entrance to you?
Diane: [ Scoffs ] Oh, do not be condescending to me.
Tucker: Diane, you didn’t want anyone to find out that we were in contact while you were away, right? So, for all intents and purposes, your shock and your outrage when I showed up were real.
Diane: [ Scoffs ]
Tucker: You were just another horrified guest. Hell, I gave you the perfect cover, if you want to think about it. You should be thanking me.
Diane: Oh, don’t even try and spin this! You choreographed that grand entrance for ashley alone, and she wasn’t even there. If you had told me about your ridiculous plan, I would have let you know that you got stuck in paris. I could have saved you the cost of the helicopter and — and all the energy you took picking out the perfect fancy suit.
Tucker: You know, it was absolutely worth it just to see all those friendly faces. And as for ashley, all in good time.
Victor: Well, I’ll be damned. Tucker mccall back in genoa city. He must have been keeping a low profile.
Victoria: Well, it makes you wonder what he’s been up to.
Victor: Mm, I remember hearing that he had divested himself of all of his worldly goods some time ago and went to some ashram in the far east to find himself.
Nick: [ Sighs ] Devon told me the same thing. Said he tracked him down in thailand and he was playing the role of the humble spiritual seeker to the hilt.
Victoria: Which doesn’t mean it was real.
Victor: Of course it wasn’t real. He has never let go of mccall unlimited. He won’t until the day he dies.
Nick: He’s had a few close calls.
Victor: Oh, come on, man. That’s a bunch of bull. He talked about having an accident in monte carlo that almost killed him. He did that for P.R. Purposes, only to impress someone he did a real estate deal with.
Nick: We can question tucker’s sudden appearance later. Right now, I’m far more interested in, what is our next move? Are we still seriously considering making a play for chancellor-winters?
Victor: Tucker mccall. Give me a break. Wait a minute. What if they’re connected?
Nate: What precisely do you think is changing in me?
Elena: This job has brought up a side of you that is power-hungry, destructive, and has the potential to hurt a lot of people.
Nate: Hurt people? Elena, the work I am doing will create jobs. The money I make for the company pays people’s salaries, allows them to keep a roof over their heads and send their kids to school. Making big things happen takes guts and vision. Sometimes it requires sacrifice.
Elena: Don’t stop. Please continue. I would love to hear exactly what you’re willing to sacrifice. Your morality? Your family? Your relationship?
Nate: I just meant that being in the business world requires a lot of time and effort.
Elena: Oh. As opposed to being a doctor?
Nate: You know I don’t think that. All of my frustrations with medicine stem from not being able to do the challenging parts of the profession.
Elena: And that suddenly justifies your behavior? And if I don’t agree with it, there’s something wrong with me.
Nate: Look… I didn’t mean to come on so strong. I just really believe in what i can accomplish. And I’m not doing this to try to get ahead. I want you to see that, to understand me.
Elena: See, that’s the thing, nate. I really do understand you. And that is what makes this so hard.
Nate: [ Sighs ]
Devon: Hey, you two. Everything okay?
Nate: Yeah, everything’s fine. I know you have to get to the hospital, and I need to head back to the office. I’ll call you later.
Devon: See you back there.
Elena: They, um… they just took some chocolate chip cookies out of the oven, so I’m gonna grab one. Can I get you anything?
Devon: Yeah, you can give me the truth. You clearly look like you need to talk to somebody. And I’m right here. Oh, davante adams!
Elena: It’s hard to discuss this with you.
Devon: I understand. But I know that you and nate are going through a rough patch, and if there’s anything I can do to help, I’d like to, even if it’s just have a chat with an old friend.
Elena: “An old friend”?
Devon: I’m sorry. A young friend.
Elena: [ Chuckles ]
Devon: Talk to me.
Elena: [ Sighs ] Look, I get that people change. It’s normal, it’s natural, and most of the time it’s a good thing. But the changes that I am seeing in nate… I don’t recognize who he is anymore.
Devon: I know this is a big career transition for him, but is it that bad?
Elena: You really mean to tell me that you haven’t noticed? From the day that he decided to walk away from medicine, it’s like — I don’t know — like he’s lost his center. His goodness, his compassion. And it’s all been replaced by this hunger to prove himself, to excel no matter what.
Devon: Well, hang on a second ’cause I’m — I’m confused. Things have been improving since he’s come back to work. So…what’s really going on?
Elena: It’s nothing. It’s everything.
Devon: Okay. If you have a problem with him and it has something to do with work, I feel like I’m to blame for it. No?
Elena: I wish it were that simple.
Devon: Well, it can be. You can tell me what’s going on, and then I can address it with nate and nudge things in the right direction for everyone. We’ll be planning group vacations in no time. Listen, if I did something, you could tell me what it is so i can at least figure out how to fix it.
Elena: Devon, this isn’t just about what you’ve done. It’s much bigger than that.
Allie: Oh, my gosh, baby, these pictures are all gallery-worthy. Ah. The love, the crazy dance moves.
Noah: Yeah, there is some solid blackmail material on there, especially from my dad, the self-proclaimed king of the dance floor.
Allie: Ah. Summer and kyle are made for each other. Look at the way he looks at her. Oh, you have to frame this one.
Allie: [ Laughs ]
Noah: [ Sighs ]
Noah: I, uh — I’ll take that.
Allie: Wait. No. Oh, my god. Oh, my god. These, um… these are of me.
Allie: I-I-I didn’t notice you taking these.
Noah: Well, that was kind of the whole point. I’ve always wanted to capture you like this. No filter, no ironic graphics. Just you in perfect natural lighting.
Allie: Normally, I hate seeing photos of myself, but… is that really the way I look?
Noah: Well, that’s how i always see you. You know, you’re a pretty great subject, professionally speaking.
Allie: Oh, yeah?
Allie: Well, I think these belong in a gallery somewhere.
Noah: Oh, yeah? What would you say if you saw these framed?
Allie: Mm…I would say that the photographer might have really liked his subject.
Noah: Hmm. I think I’d say he loved her.
Allie: [ Chuckles ]
Kyle: Aww, would you look at that?
Summer: Love is definitely in the air.
Noah: Yeah, I thought i smelled something when you walked in.
Summer: Oh, today has been such a perfect day, even with you here.
Kyle: In spite of an uninvited guest dropping in by helicopter.
Allie: Okay, take a pause here, guys. I still can’t believe you guys call him tucker. I mean, this is the tucker mccall, the most fascinating man, wrapped in a myth, bathed in business legend. I mean, that’s kind of cool, right? Or if you’re into that “billionaire playboy who lives life by the extremes” kind of thing, which I am clearly not.
Noah: Yeah, tucker spent a lot of time in genoa city and did the whole playboy thing.
Allie: Right. You said that he’s devon’s dad.
Summer: And he was married to ashley for a while.
Allie: Okay, that is so weird
[Chuckles] And hard to imagine. And, kyle, you said that he had a relationship with your mom, too.
Kyle: Yeah, unfortunately.
Noah: He also dated my mom for a little while.
Allie: Seriously? Level-headed, psych-major, wholesome sharon?
Jack: Uh-oh. What’d I walk in on?
Noah: Oh, we’re just filling allie in on the life and times of tucker mccall.
Jack: Believe me, the less you know about that guy, the better.
Summer: You know what? His helicopter didn’t blow away any of the decorations, so I’m just gonna pretend like that wedding crash didn’t happen.
Jack: I wish I could do that, too.
Diane: Don’t contact me. Don’t call and don’t text.
Tucker: Are you saying I’m dead to you?
[ Chuckles ] Isn’t that ironic?
Diane: I’m done! I have satisfied my end of our agreement. I have given you information about ashley and the abbotts. I’ve — I’ve kept you apprized of her general well-being and her romantic status. Look, you’re here now. You’re here. What could you possibly still need from me?
Tucker: Well, since you’re asking —
Diane: No! No. No more spying. I can’T. It’s over. Just say goodbye.
Tucker: No. It’s a little too soon for that. If you’re on medicare, remember,
Victoria: Tucker shows up at the same time that chancellor-winters is prepping to go public. I mean, it’s got to be connected somehow. Maybe he’s working behind the scenes with devon.
Victor: Or jill. You know, he was in bed with her in more ways than one.
Nick: As if there weren’t enough reasons for us to avoid taking control of chancellor-winters, having tucker mccall in the mix is a complication we cannot afford.
Victoria: Well, make no mistake. We’re not backing out of this. Scooping up chancellor-winters is too big of a get. And in no way do I fear tucker mccall. If he comes up with a plan, then we’ll just find a way to outmaneuver him.
Victor: My thoughts exactly.
Victoria: And we’ll know about any complications or potential hazards ahead of time because of our ace in the hole — nate.
[ Elevator doors open ]
Nate: [ Sighs ]
[ Elevator doors close ] Do my eyes deceive me?
Esther: Oh, nate. Hi. How’s my favorite doctor?
Nate: Now your favorite businessman, I hope. I know I have a lot of competition out there.
Esther: Well, there’s always room for one more favorite, especially someone as charming as you.
Nate: Oh, well, thank you.
Esther: [ Chuckles ]
Nate: So, what brings you by chancellor-winters?
Elena: I have a meeting with devon.
Nate: About what?
Esther: [ Chuckling ] I’m not sure.
Nate: Well, why don’t you wait in here? So, is this the first time you’ve been here since the merger?
Esther: Yeah. Mrs. C would be so impressed. It was a big move, and she’d be so happy that her grandson’s company has joined hers.
Nate: Say, you knew katherine as well as anyone.
Esther: [ Chuckles ] The stories I could tell.
Nate: Mm. She was an inspiration. To have accomplished so much in an era where it was rare for a woman to run a big company…
Esther: Yes. People underestimated her because she inherited the business from her husband, and so they didn’t think that she was qualified.
Nate: Mm. I know that feeling.
Esther: Really? But you graduated from medical school. How could anyone ever think that you don’t know what you’re doing?
Nate: Oh, you’d be surprised. But I’m sure it’s nothing compared to what she went through. I’m sure she’s had more than her fair share of detractors and naysayers.
Esther: [ Chuckles ] More than you can imagine. And the worst one was jill. She was a thorn in my side, too. It’s crazy how she could become co-owner of this company.
Nate: Ah. I never had any issues with jill. She’s always been so helpful. If there are any problems at this company, they have nothing to do with jill.
Esther: Well, yes, she makes me crazy, but I guess I do kind of wish that jill was in genoa city full time. I mean, in the final decades of her life, mrs. C made peace with jill, and they eventually became co-ceos of chancellor.
Nate: Wow. So, katherine was willing to share her power. Hmm. That’s fascinating. You know, I would love to know more about katherine the businesswoman, if you wouldn’t mind.
Esther: Mind? Oh, no, I-I’d love to.
Devon: Elena, I trust your judgment, so you can tell me the truth and tell me what I’ve done that’s causing friction in your relationship.
Elena: You didn’t do anything per se. I’m just saying that i understand why you’re putting nate through the paces. You’re running a business. The success and failure of every decision falls on you.
Devon: Yeah, and I appreciate you understanding that.
Elena: But I think the only thing nate cares about is making his mark and showing everyone that he deserves to be where he is, that he has the talent and the courage to operate at that level.
Devon: Yeah, I know that. And I wouldn’t have hired him unless I thought he was talented or I thought he could handle this job. I mean, he’s one of the smartest people I know, and I have very high expectations for him. But he knows this already, right?
Elena: I think he’s just frustrated that things haven’t happened as quickly as he wants them to or in the way that he wants them to.
Devon: He still feels like that? ‘Cause since he’s come back to work, I’ve been under the impression that he’s really making an effort to respect the hierarchy.
Elena: It’s just the way that nate is handling his feelings. I can’t accept it.
Devon: Are we talking about just him struggling with this transition into the corporate world, or is it something completely different here?
Elena: I’m sorry, devon. I’m gonna head back to work.
Devon: You sure?
Elena: I’ll see you later. Ever leave your clothes in the dryer
“The young and the restless”
will continue. Let’s be real…
Esther: Oh, my goodness!
Devon: Hey. What’d I miss?
Devon: Esther, you’re looking beautiful, as always.
Esther: Oh, you.
[ Chuckles ]
Devon: Everything all right with you?
Nate: Yeah. Why wouldn’t it be?
Esther: I was just telling nate how mrs. C liked to shake people up. She wasn’t shy.
Devon: No. And she didn’t waste one second of life on this planet.
Esther: Oh, that’s for sure.
Devon: She had a motto. Remember that?
Esther: Yes. “Live until I die.” And it wasn’t just a saying to her.
Devon: That’s right, not at all. She grabbed life with both hands and lived it. She saw the places she wanted to see. She had a whole bucket list she checked off. She was even lucky enough to find love later in life.
Esther: Yeah, she grabbed this happiness and hold on tight.
Nate: Words to live by.
Esther: So, devon…
Esther: …Why’d you want to see me?
Devon: Well, I wanted to see you because I’ve been thinking about a conversation that we had not too long ago.
Esther: Uh-oh. What’d I say?
Devon: You were just telling me how miles and bella are growing up and how you’re not taking care of the chancellor mansion anymore.
Esther: Yeah. That. Yeah.
Devon: And so I started thinking about our whole principle behind forming chancellor-winters. You know, it’s because we wanted it to be a family enterprise ’cause that’s something that’s very important to me.
Nate: I can’t begin to tell you how I feel about being a part of this.
Devon: And, esther, you are part of the chancellor legacy.
Esther: Oh, that means so much to me.
Devon: Well, it’s very, very true. And we would love to have you a part of what we’re building here, if you’d like to be.
Esther: De– wait. Devon, wait, wait. A-are you offering me a job?
Devon: I absolutely am offering you a job, yes. Our receptionist has to take off for personal reasons —
Esther: Oh! Oh, no! No! The answer — yes! The answer is yes!
Esther: [ Laughing ] Yes!
Summer: All I know is when i look back on the day that we chose each other again in front of all of our friends and family, the last thing I want to think about is —
Noah: A stupid stunt pulled by some self-aggrandizing jerk? Yeah. Yeah, I agree. We should erase that part.
Summer: Consider it forgotten.
Noah: And tonight doesn’t have to end. After party tonight. My club.
Kyle: Ooh. Are you up for it?
Summer: Mm, dance all night with you?
Kyle: Oh, I thought you’d never ask.D
Summer: [ Chuckles ]
Allie: Ah, they kissed! That makes it official. After party it is.
Noah: Save me a dance. Or all of them.
Allie: Mm. Only if you play your cards right.
Noah: Alright, it’s official. I’ll see you guys tonight. Bye. See you, jack.
Jack: Good night. You know what? I think it’s a great idea. We could all use a little palate cleansing, particularly after tucker very nearly spoiled your day.
Kyle: I’m sorry. What happened?
Summer: Tucker who? What?
[ Laughter ]
Tucker: No, we’re still partners. I need you to continue to be my eyes and ears inside the abbott world.
Diane: And if I refuse? What, are you threatening me?
Tucker: I’m reminding you that you would not have been able to make progress with your son, nor would you have had any kind of important place with your adorable little grandson, were it not for my help. So I need you to continue assisting me until I can get a foothold. ‘Cause, you know, I’m facing the same uphill battle you faced, right? I mean, your crimes, granted, were more egregious than mine, which gives me hope — ’cause if you can overcome your obstacles, so can I.
Diane: To what end?
Tucker: Why do you want to know that?
Diane: Because I feel protective of the abbotts now. They’re my family. So I need you to tell me exactly what you want from them.
Summer: You know, as excited
Jack: Are things that busy at marchetti? ‘Cause I honestly think you two deserve a honeymoon break.
Kyle: Oh, funny you should mention that. I have already lined up a villa on the beach in costa rica.
Summer: Mm, he surprised me. He even got me this cute little straw hat.
Kyle: Yeah, we’re still working out the schedule and things, but we hope we can get away in the next couple of weeks.
Summer: You know, as excited as I am about a romantic vacation, I’m still a little nervous about leaving marchetti and harrison.
Jack: Don’t worry about harrison. He’s got me, he’s got diane, mrs. Martinez, traci.
Kyle: [ Chuckling ] Okay, we get the picture.
Summer: Prepare to return to a spoiled kid.
Jack: No, we won’t peel any of his grapes for him. Unless he asks. You can always video-chat with him every night.
Kyle: We’re going to pack some picture books so we can still read him bedtime stories.
Jack: Great. As for marchetti, you’ve hired a great staff. Lean on them. Delegate. Look, you two take time. Enjoy the love you share with each other. You deserve it. We’ll take care of the rest.
Kyle: Okay, but what about our mothers? Is it safe to leave them without supervision?
Jack: At the moment, yes. There is a stalemate. I wouldn’t call it peace, but I — they’re not fighting. Take full advantage of that.
Esther: I should warn you — I cannot possibly start until tomorrow at 8:00.
Devon: Well, guess what. Tomorrow at 8:00 is perfect.
Devon: Absolutely. Yes. We’ll have the current receptionist start training you, and then I can go up and take care of everything in H.R.
Esther: I will learn the routine in no time.
Devon: I have no doubt that you will.
Esther: I’m so glad you thought of me.
Devon: Oh, absolutely. I’ve been thinking about you for a long time. I’m just happy that this opened up and we can make something work out.
Nate: Welcome aboard.
Esther: [ Chuckling ] Thank you. Oh! I am an employee of chancellor-winters.
Devon: Yes, you are.
Esther: Well, starting tomorrow at 8:00. Oh, no. Tomorrow? Oh, my gosh. I’ve got to find something to wear. I’ve got to go.
[ Laughter ] Mrs. C would be so proud of you.
Esther: I got to go.
Devon: [ Chuckles ] Thank you. We’ll see you tomorrow.
Esther: Thanks. Bye!
Nate: Good move bringing esther on.
Devon: Oh, yeah, man. It feels like a missing piece to this puzzle having her here. Katherine always considered her family, so it’s only right that we take care of her like this, you know? But, uh, speaking of looking after family, when I asked you before if everything was okay with you, how come you weren’t honest with me?
Victor: Now as devon’s coo, nate hastings is perfectly positioned to find out if tucker mccall had anything to do with chancellor-winters going public.
Victoria: The more intel we have, the better prepared we’ll be.
Nick: Yeah, the sec has a name for that kind of behavior, and they don’t like it.
Victor: Son, no regulations have been violated.
Victoria: Nate has also developed a personal relationship with a consultant that jill brought in to help with the ipo, a woman named audra charles.
Victor: Hmm. Good.
Nick: This is all assuming that nate can continue to lie to his cousins’ faces.
Devon: I asked you not that long ago how things are going between you and elena.
Nate: I said we’d work things out.
Devon: Yes, I know what you said, but I just had a conversation with her.
Nate: What did she say?
Devon: I’m not gonna betray her trust, but I can tell you that she loves you very much and she’s worried about you.
Nate: Yeah. I wish things hadn’t gotten to this point with her.
Devon: Well, I’m gonna say to you the same thing I said to her. If there’s something that I can do to help, I’d like to do it. So, let’s hear your side.
Nate: Elena’s been saying all the right things about me leaving medicine, but the fact of the matter is she never expected this to last. She thought I’d have fun for a while, but ultimately wind back up at memorial.
Devon: Hmm. I mean, I know a lot of your connection was based on being in the same profession.
Nate: Mm. When things got tense between the two of us, elena’s first instinct was to tell me to walk away from chancellor-winters. She’s still focused on the past, how things were. And I’m looking forward.
[ Cellphone pings ] It’s a business matter I need to follow up on.
Devon: Anything I can help with?
Nate: Consider it handled. And for the record, I’m committed to working things out with elena, and I’m hopeful it will happen because I love her. But I want to make one thing clear. I am determined not to allow personal issues to interfere with what I’m trying to accomplish here.
Devon: Okay. I appreciate your candor.
Nate: Better take care of this. (Hamlet) it’s beggin’! Advantage plans have coverageyou could save on
Nate: I got here as quickly as I could. What’s going on?
Victoria: Tucker mccall has returned to genoa city.
Nate: Devon didn’t say anything about his father coming to town.
Victoria: Yeah, I gathered since you didn’t mention it to me, which means one of two things. Either tucker hasn’t told devon that he’s here, or devon knows that his prodigal father has returned and he’s just keeping you out of the loop.
Nate: I wonder if he found out about the plan to go public.
Victoria: I had the same thought. It’s possible that he’s thinking of making his own move on the company. With him, anything is possible.
Nate: I’ll see what I can find out.
Victoria: It’s imperative that you do. If there’s a wild card in the mix, it could change the entire game.
Phyllis: You know, it feels so wrong having these secret meetings here, but then it feels so right.
Nikki: [ Chuckles ] Well, since summer is suspicious of our new civility, I thought it would be a good idea.
Phyllis: I mean, I can’t believe I had to swear to her that I wouldn’t try to run diane out of town. I guess she wants me to just stand back and watch this woman try to worm her way into the lives of everyone we love.
Nikki: Well, from what I can tell, you’re doing a good job faking it.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Thanks. So, tucker. His desire to give this very ostentatious gift to kyle and summer — could that link him to diane in los angeles?
Nikki: With any luck, it will.
Phyllis: Alright, so, you have big news to tell me. I’m ready.
Nikki: Thanks to victor’s team, we have a fascinating new piece of the puzzle.
Tucker: Trust me — I’m not out to hurt anyone. I just want what you got when you came back to genoa city — forgiveness and acceptance, mostly from ashley. I’ve made no secret of that.
Diane: I am sure that people are already suspicious about the two of us being back here at the same time. And if anybody puts the pieces together, then all the help you’ve given me will be for nothing. And I have worked too long and too hard to lose what I’ve managed to get back. So, please. Come on. Just please reconsider continuing to use me as your spy.
