Jack: Have a seat.
Tucker: [ Chuckles ] That’s a nice surprise, an opportunity to sit down with jack abbott. How could I say no?
Jack: A dream for me, too.
Tucker: Actually, it’s kind of nice to have a one-on-one chat with you.
Jack: Well, I’m less than thrilled, but it’s a necessary evil.
Tucker: Yeah. And I appreciate your candor, as always. I know you’re not thrilled about my coming back to town and trying to reconnect with ashley.
Jack: No, but I am pleased with your lack of progress in that regard.
Tucker: So you must have enjoyed her storming out just now.
Jack: Well, I would have preferred she throw a drink in your face, but storming out we’ll have to settle for.
Tucker: Yeah, I know you’re protective of her, and i appreciate that. I admire it, actually. It’s exactly how I would feel in your situation. But my wanting to make amends with her is genuine ’cause, jack, my relationship with her is the best thing that ever happened to me.
Jack: Good luck with that.
Tucker: Alright, what would it take to convince you that I’m sincere?
Jack: Don’t even bother. I don’t know why you would want to convince me of anything anyway. This is between you and ashley. She’s made her feelings very clear. You need to respect that.
Tucker: You know what? You’re right. This is between me and her, no one else. But I hope you will keep an open mind in case she changes her mind about things.
[ Sighing ] Okay.> Is that all you wanted to talk about?
Jack: No. I’m just getting started.
Sharon: Stranger. Hey, did you see those photos that faith posted last week from the michigan football game?
Nick: I did. It sure looks like she’s having fun. It really looks like she’s settled into the college lifestyle.
Sharon: I know. I’m so happy for her. So, what can I get you tonight?
Nick: Uh, just some tea.
Sharon: You got it. Is everything okay?
Nick: Uh, I don’t know if you’ve heard this or not. I’ve been seeing someone new.
Sharon: I hadn’T.
Nick: Yeah. Uh, with our history and, uh, everything you’ve gone through with rey, I wasn’t sure when to bring it up.
Sharon: Well, it doesn’t have to be awkward, nick. You know, I haven’t been ready to get back out there yet, but I’m glad that you’re feeling social again.
Nick: Yeah. It’s nothing serious. We’re just kind of taking it moment by moment.
Sharon: So, it’s still in the early, fun stage?
Nick: Yeah. It is fun. Usually.
Sharon: But the look on your face tells me it’s not especially fun, not tonight.
Nick: That would be right.
Sharon: You want to talk about it?
Nick: You should know who it is first. It’s sally spectra.
Adam: I can’t admit what you asked of me because you are wrong. Tonight has been all about you. There’s nothing about this night that has been less than sincere, sally. I mean, all that I ever wanted to do is see you succeed and achieve your dreams, even if i went about that in completely the wrong way.
Sally: Yeah, you drew me in for a little while, but all of this was completely the wrong way.
Adam: I see that now. I do. But I believe that you know everything that I said tonight about how much I still love you is true.
Sally: Adam —
Adam: Okay? But you are scared of the connection that you still feel for me because I screwed things up so badly. So you’re pushing me away. I get it. I would probably do the same thing. This is very real for me, okay? I’M… I’m putting my heart in your hands. And that is scary as hell.
[ Sighs ] But there’s nothing that i wouldn’t do for you. There’s no risk that I wouldn’t take to prove myself to you. Please, sally.
Sally: [ Sighs ]
Adam: We can get past this.
Sally: I don’t think we can.
Adam: [ Sighs ]
Sally: So all I want from you right now… is to unlock that door so I can leave.
[ Sniffles ]
Adam: [ Sighs ]
provided by… doesn’t your family deserve the best?
Tucker: Sure, whatever you want to talk about. Here I am. I’m an open book, as always. I’m sure you got questions. Fire away.
Jack: Excellent. Here’s what I want to know. Why now?
Tucker: Why now what?
Jack: Why did you choose this particular time to show up in town?
Tucker: Yes, everyone’s so curious about my timing. Okay, so, what in particular are you wondering about?
Tucker: What about diane?
Jack: Is it mere coincidence that soon after she resurfaced, you showed up in town?
Tucker: Oh, god, this again. I was hoping you of all people would have something a little more original up your sleeve.
Jack: Well, I’m sorry to disappoint you. Actually, I had no real interest in any of it, but something came to my attention that made me, well, want to ponder your timing more carefully.
Tucker: Oh, good. A new twist. I can’t wait to hear it.
Jack: There is a rumor —
Tucker: [ Scoffs ] A rumor, jack? Really? That’s where you’re going with this — gossip?
Jack: There is a rumor out there that you not only knew that diane was alive and in los angeles, but that you were in touch with her.
Sharon: Uh… well, I guess, um, I should be shocked, but when you mentioned sally’s name, something clicked with me. It just fell into place. Um, I had a conversation with sally here a while back. It was a deep conversation.
Nick: About adam?
Sharon: Well, yeah, it started out that way, but we covered a lot of ground, and i had told her, you know, whenever my life feels uncertain that i have a lot of people in my life I can count on. And she said, “like nick?” And [Chuckles] When she immediately said that, I was surprised, but I just filed it away for later, but now I can see that there was something forming way back then. And, you know, you hadn’t worked at newman for very long at that point, but she definitely spotted you.
Nick: Well, I guess I spotted her, too.
[ Chuckles ]
Sharon: Well, you know, she’s very noticeable.
Nick: She is. Um, I wasn’t planning on this happening. You know, we were just working together. Really like her attitude. I think she’s talented. We became friendly, and then it, uh — I don’t know — it just turned into something else.
Sharon: Well, I, of course, can understand why any woman would be drawn to you, nick.
[ Both laugh ] And sally — you know, she, uh — she’s an interesting person, you know? She’s — she’s smart and spirited, and those are qualities that, um, any man would like.
Nick: What are you not saying?
Sharon: What do you mean?
Nick: Well, I can tell, you know, with the sound of your voice that you’re holding something back.
Sharon: Okay. I can’t help wondering how much of this new relationship is really about sally and how much of it is actually about adam.
Adam: I definitely shouldn’t have brought up nick. That was a mistake. I’m sorry that that upset you. But if I hadn’t brought up the subject, it wouldn’t have been honest. I had to mention that you’re seeing my brother.
Sally: Yeah, but that’s not exactly what you said. You accused me of using him in some desperate attempt to get over you.
Adam: Those were not my words.
Sally: Maybe not exactly, but it was right there between the lines. What would have been more accurate is to admit that this whole scheme of yours tonight was because you can’t stand the fact that I’m with nick, even if you can’t bring yourself to say it out loud.
Adam: Of course I can’t stand it. It kills me to think about you with somebody else. That’s what happens when you love someone, sally.
Sally: But it’s more than that. It kills you because he’s your brother.
Adam: No. Okay? You could be with anybody, and I would hate it.
Sally: Okay, but would you have gone to all this trouble if it wasn’t nick? No. Because it is all about the competition for you. You have to beat someone for something to matter to you. That’s the only way anything has value to you — someone else has to want it, and you have to win.
Adam: No. You have value to me. You are important to me. I don’t care about anything else.
Sally: Just stop. Okay? I-I — [ Sighs ] I can’t do this. I-I’ve heard more than enough tonight. (Vo) no matter what type of severe asthma you have,…
Nick: I understand where you’re coming from, but this relationship is not like that. It’s got nothing to do with adam.
Sharon: Are you sure?
Nick: I’m absolutely sure.
Sharon: Because there is a pattern here, nick. You and adam tend to pursue the same women — chelsea, me, and now sally.
Nick: Well, obviously, we have excellent taste.
Sharon: [ Laughs ]
Nick: I promise you, it’s got nothing to do with him or any rivalry with adam. If anything, I am attracted to her in spite of her being adam’s ex. I didn’t want the headache of that entanglement. But it happened.
Sharon: And now it’s getting complicated.
Nick: Boy, is it ever. Adam regrets letting her go. And I’m trying to give her as much space and time that she needs to work things through with him.
Sharon: And let me guess. You want to protect her because adam tends to bring chaos to the women in his life and you don’t want to see anybody in pain.
Nick: Sally’s no damsel in distress. I, uh, want to support her any way that she needs, but she doesn’t need rescuing. She’s — she’s tough.
Sharon: If that’s really true, then I would say you’re more invested in this relationship than you’re admitting even to yourself.
Sharon: Boy, now I know why you looked so worried when you came in.
Nick: [ Sighs ] Don’t worry about me. No matter what happens, I’ll be fine.
Sharon: I know you will be.
Sally: Thank you.
Adam: Look, I really don’t want you to leave.
Sally: Look, I can’t do this.
Adam: Sally —
Sally: It hurts too much, adam. You need to stay away from now on. It’s best for both of us.
Adam: Sally, don’t go. Sally!
Tucker: Well, I know how it looks when I show up in town just a few months after diane. It’s bound to raise some eyebrows, and then people concoct all sorts of theories. That’s normal.
Jack: Forgive me. Maybe I missed it. I didn’t hear a “yes” or a “no” in there anywhere. Did you or did you not connect with diane in los angeles?
Tucker: Well, why are you pursuing this in the first place? This is so beneath you, jack. A man of your intellect and station. And do you have any evidence to substantiate this story of yours?
Jack: Aside from the obvious coincidences? No. There’s no evidence. It’s just conjecture. But it still doesn’t change the fact that you haven’t given me an answer.
Tucker: Well, let me ask you something. Why would I want anything to do with a woman who I absolutely detested when she allegedly died, who made me a murder suspect? Why would I want any contact with a woman like that?
Jack: Why, indeed? Yeah. I mean, there’s no love lost between you.
Jack: But maybe the more revealing question is, why are you still dancing around the subject?
Tucker: ‘Cause I just find the whole thing pointless. I could deny it all day and all night. You’re gonna believe whatever the hell you want to believe. I know the human mind works.
[ Footsteps approaching ]
Diane: Hello, jack. Tucker.
Tucker: There she is, in the flesh.
Diane: [ Scoffs ] The two of you dining together? I — I can’t imagine how you agreed to this.
Jack: Actually, we were just talking about you.
Jack: Yeah. Here. Have a seat. Join us.
One role of a lifetime…
one sore throat.
Jack: I was just sharing with tucker that there’s a rumor out there that the two of you crossed paths in los angeles.
Diane: Gossip, jack? Really?
Tucker: Exactly what I said.
Jack: Well, it’s just speculation at this point, but tucker hasn’t denied it, so I am most interested in what you think about the whole thing.
Diane: Are you serious?
Tucker: Oh, he’s dead serious.
Diane: How can you even ask me that?
Jack: I’m just trying to get some answers, if only to put the whole matter to bed.
Diane: You know, I am so tired of some people constantly trying to dig up dirt on me. They’re trying to undermine me as a way to get me out of town. But you?
Jack: I meant no harm. I’m just trying to find the truth.
Diane: And you think that tucker showing up in genoa city out of the blue means that we’re connected somehow?
Jack: No, I didn’t say that. I asked what your thoughts were.
Diane: Well, you know how surprised I was to see him and how furious I was that he interrupted kyle and summer’s big day.
Jack: Yeah, you seemed genuinely upset.
Diane: And I told you then that I had a lot of questions about why he was back.
Jack: Yeah, you did. And you still haven’t denied it, either…
Diane: [ Scoffs ]
Jack: …Just like tucker.
Tucker: Are you two not on friendly terms? ‘Cause I’m sensing tension here.
Jack: No, there’s no tension.
Tucker: Well, that’s good ’cause you’re working together, right? You’ve bonded over your son and your grandson —
Diane: Just stop. Jack, I am telling you that until that man dropped out of a helicopter into your backyard, i had not seen him since the night of my death. And that is the truth. And I — I hope that my word is good enough for you.
Jack: I guess it’ll have to be.
Jack: Well, I better get home.
Diane: Will I see you tomorrow?
Jack: Tomorrow. Yeah. Good night.
Diane: [ Scoffs ]
[ Sighs ]
[ Thud ]
Chloe: Hallelujah! You’re here!
Sally: What’s going on?
Chloe: Well, you know, nick came looking for you after you left, and that seemed odd because you were supposed to be meeting him. So he and I — well, mostly me — put together that the dinner invitation must have come from adam.
Sally: Yep. He tricked me. I thought I was showing up for a romantic night with nick, and adam was there.
Chloe: Well, I was freaking out. You know, I’ve been down this path with adam and his little schemes, and I was worried about you. But nick was a rock. He said that whatever his brother was up to, that he knew that you could handle it. And he also thought that maybe it would be good for you and adam to talk things through. Did you read him the riot act for tricking you like that?
Sally: [ Sighs ] I did…at first. And then I realized that adam and I still had some things to sort through. It wasn’t completely adversarial.
Chloe: What was it then?
Sally: It was a real conversation. You know, we reminisced, and adam was thoughtful and attentive. It was good.
Chloe: Oh, crap.
Adam: [ Exhales heavily ] I tried everything to remove fabric odors, and I’m going to tell you about exciting medicare advantage plans that can provide broad coverage and still may save you money on monthly premiums and prescription drugs. With original medicare you are covered for hospital stays and doctor office visits but you have to meet a deductible for each, and then you’re still responsible for 20% of the cost. Next, let’s look at a medicare supplement plan. As you can see, they cover the same things as original medicare, and they also cover your medicare deductibles and coinsurance. But they often have higher monthly premiums and no prescription drug coverage. Now, let’s take a look at humana’s medicare advantage plans. With a humana medicare advantage plan, hospitals stays, doctor office visits and your original medicare deductibles are covered. And, of course, most humana medicare advantage plans include prescription drug coverage. With no copays or deductibles on tier 1 prescriptions, and zero dollars for routine vaccines, including shingles, at in-network retail pharmacies. In fact, in 2021, humana medicare advantage prescription drug plan members saved an estimated $9,600 on average on their prescription costs. Most humana medicare advantage plans have coverage for vision and hearing. And dental coverage that includes two free cleanings a year, plus dentures, crowns, fillings and more! Most humana medicare advantage plans include a silver sneakers fitness program at no extra cost. You get all of this for as low as a zero-dollar monthly plan premium in many areas; and your doctor and hospital may already be a part of humana’s large network. There is no obligation, so call the number on your screen right now to see if your doctor is in our network; to find out if you could save on your prescriptions, and to get our free decision guide.

“The young and the restless”
Sally: When did nick leave?
Chloe: Just a while ago.
Sally: What kind of mood was he in?
Chloe: A little thrown. I mean, how could he not be after finding out that you were with adam?
Sally: I just feel bad that i wasn’t here whenever he showed up.
Chloe: It’s not your fault.
Sally: I know, but I feel like I owe him an apology.
Chloe: I’m sure he would appreciate that.
Sally: Thank you very much for being concerned about me. It really means a lot.
Sally: Alright, I am gonna head home. I will see you tomorrow.
Chloe: Okay. See you then.
[ Cellphone pings ]
Jack: Hey. Reading anything good?
Traci: Hey. Yeah. This is one of my friend’s novels. It’s not published yet, and she is hoping for a promotional blurb.
Jack: How is it?
Traci: Well, it’s good enough for a promotional blurb.
[ Chuckles ]
Jack: Ashley home yet?
Traci: [ Sighs ] Yeah. Um, the door to her bedroom was closed when I got here earlier. I think she’s turned in for the night.
Jack: Yeah, makes sense to me. She’s had a pretty long day.
Traci: Yeah, traveling takes it out of me, too.
[ Sighs ] Jack, I’m a little worried about ashley.
Traci: We were talking about tucker earlier. Uh, she claims that she is immune to his charms, but I’m not exactly sure about that. It was not too long ago she was really, really in love with him.
Jack: I had the same worries about her. I am gonna take ashley at her word. She is adamant she has no interest in rekindling anything with tucker. Besides, she seems a lot more focused on trying to get to the truth about whether diane and tucker met up in L.A.
Traci: Yes. You know, she she mentioned that to me, too. I was completely stunned. Where does a theory like that come from?
Jack: Well, for starters, most of the speculation circles around the extravagant gift that tucker gave to kyle and summer.
Traci: The bentley. What does a bentley have to do with diane?
Jack: You know what? I think I’m gonna make us a couple of drinks, and then i will tell you everything that i know.
Tucker: For what it’s worth, I found your declaration to be very convincing.
Diane: I’m in no mood, tucker.
Tucker: You looked jack right in the eye and lied to him about having no contact with me.
[ Inhales sharply ] It was very bold.
Diane: Stop it. Jack matters to me. And I’ve built a life here, and that matters to me.
Tucker: What about me, diane? Are you saying I don’t matter to you?
Diane: What just happened with jack wasn’t funny. And you’re treating everyone’s suspicions like they’re some kind of joke.
Tucker: I just don’t think they’re any real threat.
Diane: [ Scoffs ]
Tucker: Not right now, anyway. Although I would like to know where this whole thing started.
Diane: Oh, nikki and phyllis, of course. I have no doubt about it. And nikki was just in L.A., And I’m sure she was trying to dig up some dirt on me. She just loves taunting me about trying to ship me out of town.
Tucker: Yeah, I witnessed some of that yesterday.
Diane: [ Sighs ]
Tucker: But jack said he had no evidence at all to back up any of his allegation.
Diane: Well, that’s probably true — because if either of those two harpies had one shred of evidence against me, they would have used it as ammunition already. And jack probably wouldn’t have held back, either.
Tucker: Okay. There you go. There’s no need to get so worked up.
Diane: [ Scoffs ]
Tucker: Hey. Take a deep breath. Take a deep breath. Okay? We can do this. We can handle all these suspicions. We can answer people’s questions with grace and élan. We just need to keep our cool, baby.
Diane: Tucker, there is no “we” anymore. I am going to put as much distance as I can between you and me.
Tucker: [ Laughing ] Well, that’s not your call, is it?
Diane: Jack told me that ashley is back.
Tucker: Yes, she is.
Diane: Yeah, and she agreed to meet with you.
Tucker: Yeah, she did.
Diane: Well, you told me that I didn’t have to keep tabs on the abbotts once you had the information about ashley’s return. So I believe our agreement has concluded.
Tucker: Oh, my dear diane. I have to respectfully disagree. Hey! It’s me! Your dry skin!
Diane: What are you talking about? We had a deal.
Tucker: Well, I think you’re forgetting the terms of the deal. You were supposed to inform me the minute ashley got back from paris. You did not.
Diane: [ Scoffs ]
Tucker: I learned ashley was home from ashley. She contacted me directly. So, how did you uphold your end of the deal?
Diane: I hadn’t even seen jack at that point. How would I have known that ashley was back? What, I’m not — I’m not psychic.
Tucker: That was our arrangement.
Diane: Yeah, well, I would have told you the moment she got back, but she beat me to the punch. I mean, and who would have guessed that ashley would be willing to contact you?
Tucker: If I hire a guy to mow my lawn and before he shows up, a goat wanders on my property and eats all the grass, I don’t pay the guy, do I? The deal is off.
Diane: Oh, my god, that is an entirely different situation.
Tucker: The principles are the same.
Diane: Look, tucker, I did what you asked.
Tucker: No, you didn’T. There is no argument to be made. You are not off the hook until I say you’re off the hook. Do you understand me? You are gonna do exactly what i say. I still need you for things.
[ Cellphone pings ]
Diane: I-I don’t know what else you want me to do.
Tucker: Yeah, well, I’ll be in touch with you.
Diane: [ Scoffs ]
[ Sighs ]
Traci: Thank you. So, nikki found out that diane was being chauffeured in a bentley all over los angeles.
Jack: Accompanied by a mystery man who nikki assumes was tucker.
Traci: You know, I guess it could be a coincidence. There are plenty of bentleys in the world, and diane could have gotten herself involved with any number of men who could afford to have owned one in los angeles. And she and tucker could have arrived a few months apart here in genoa city without being in cahoots. But that’s really the issue, isn’t it?
Jack: The cahoots part. Yeah, that’s my concern.
Traci: What do you intend to do about it?
Jack: I just left sitting with tucker and diane at society.
Traci: Really? What did they have to say for themselves?
Jack: Well, tucker equivocated. That’s his natural reflex. Diane looked me right in the eye and said they had no connection. I didn’t even mention what i knew about the car.
Traci: Do you think her answer would have been different if you had mentioned it?
Jack: I — I don’t know. I just wanted to see what their reaction might be to the initial allegation that they had met up in L.A.
Traci: Jack, you are so smart. And you didn’t interfere with nikki’s investigation in case she’s on to something.
Jack: Boy, she sure has ashley convinced. And, of course, phyllis is gonna help in any way she can.
Traci: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. So, diane looked you right in the eye and denied there was any connection. I guess the question is, do you believe her?
Jack: [ Sighs ]
Nick: How was your night?
Sally: Not what I expected. I talked to chloe, and she told me that you two figured out that adam set me up for a romantic dinner on the roof, and i thought I was meeting you.
Nick: Yeah, I know.
Sally: Yeah, I was pretty furious with him.
Nick: I bet. You were gone for quite a while. You must have stuck around.
Sally: Yeah, I decided to hear him out. It was pretty nice up there. It was peaceful. He made a heartfelt pitch for one more chance.
Nick: Mm. Yeah. I thought that’s what he was up to.
Sally: Yeah, he’s much more transparent than he thinks.
Nick: Last time I talked to him, he told me he was still in love with you. I’m assuming he told you the same thing.
Nick: How’d it make you feel?
Tucker: Hey. What’s so urgent?
Audra: There’s been a big development regarding the chancellor-winters ipo.
Tucker: Yeah, I know. I just talked to devon. He accused me of going after the company.
Tucker: Yeah, I know. I know, but for a moment i thought maybe you gave away the secret.
Audra: Really? That’s how little faith you had in me?
Tucker: Oh, it was a fleeting moment.
Audra: I should hope so. You have no reason to doubt my loyalty.
Tucker: I know.
Audra: Too bad devon and lily can’t say the same about their cousin nate.
Tucker: Is nate the one giving away inside information?
Audra: He’s the one.
Tucker: Oh, man. No wonder devon was so emotional earlier. Getting betrayed by someone close to you like that — that is tough.
Audra: He and lily and billy were all blindsided. They couldn’t believe nate sold them out. I observed some tension between devon and nate, but nothing that suggested anything of this magnitude.
Tucker: I almost feel bad for them.
Audra: Don’T. Because nate’s betrayal is gonna have a major impact on your plans.
Adam: What are you doing back here?
Sally: I want clarification.
Adam: Regarding what?
Sally: Do you still love me as much as you say you do?
Adam: [ Sighs ] Yes. More. Okay? These last few years have felt empty. And then I found you. And everything was so right. You filled that void. I felt complete when I was with you. Everything… we fit together perfectly, sally.
Sally: Then why did you end things? Give me the real reason this time.
Adam: I was… I was scared.
Nick: Leave her alone.
Adam: Wait a minute.
Nick: No. You’re dangerous, and you destroy everything you touch. That’s not gonna happen to sally ’cause I won’t let it.
Adam: [ Gasps ]
[ Exhales heavily ]
[ Breathing heavily ]
Sally: I have to admit that some of what adam said resonated with me. We had something special, really special, before he blew it up. But, I mean, as much as he says he cares about me, he still used trickery to get me on the roof. Everything with him is deception. How can I ever trust him?
[ Sighs ] And I feel weird talking with you about it ’cause [Sighs]… I can’t get you out of my head.
Nick: It’s getting messy, isn’t it? I think that’s the last thing either one of us wanted. The longer this goes on, I think we realize we should probably just… pull the plug and, uh… go our separate ways… before this gets out of hand.
Sally: [ Sighs ] Yeah. Yeah, you’re — you’re probably right — ’cause this isn’t gonna get any less complicated.
Sally: Yeah, maybe we should just walk away.
Traci: Jack, I’m so sorry about all of this. But, you know, right now it’s all just speculation. It really could be a coincidence. I’m a firm believer in innocent until proven guilty. So maybe you could just go on like you have been, but with your eyes open just a little bit wider. Maybe there’s nothing to nikki and ashley’s suspicions and the situation between you and diane and kyle doesn’t have to change.
Jack: Sound, sage, reasoned advice from my baby sister. I’ve come to expect nothing less from you. Thank you.
Traci: You’re welcome. And if there is something to all of this, eventually it will come out. The truth always does.
Audra: Devon and lily are gonna postpone the ipo while they sort things out.
Tucker: Oh, that’s to be expected, I suppose. We’ll just have to be patient. You’ll keep me apprized, of course.
Audra: Of course. But there’s a larger problem than the delay.
Tucker: Oh, let me guess. Some mysterious ceo who’s as interested in taking over chancellor-winters as I am.
Audra: That’s right. Any thoughts on the identity of the interested party?
Tucker: Mm. Many. But one name keeps coming to the surface — victoria newman.
Audra: That would be a reach, I think.
Tucker: I don’t think so because katherine — when she died, she left the company to victor. So, there’s history there. Victoria would know that and try to honor it.
Audra: In theory, yes, okay? But newman has spent so much capital trying to expand recently. I doubt they have the liquidity for a move like that.
Tucker: Yes, maybe you’re right. Maybe there are other suitors, but none I find as intriguing as victoria. She is a fighter.
[ Chuckles ] She’s a competitor. I wonder if she’s as formidable an opponent as her father.
Audra: Sounds like you’re about to find out.
