Adam: Hey, chelsea. How are you? You look like you’re getting stronger.
Chelsea: Thank you. I feel stronger. And I spoke to dr. Malone earlier. She’s authorizing my release today.
Adam: Are you sure you’re ready for that?
Chelsea: Yeah. I haven’t had any thoughts about hurting myself, and we both feel the crisis is over.
Adam: Um, I assume that you’ve spoken with her about setting up a treatment plan?
Chelsea: Mm-hmm. I’ll be joining a support group, and I’ll be seeing her on an outpatient basis. So…
[ Bag zips ] …Everything’s been set up.
Adam: Well, that’s great. You know, maybe I can help you find someplace to live. You know, given the circumstances, I don’t think the grand phoenix is the greatest idea.
Chelsea: You don’t have to worry about me. I’ll figure that out. For now, I’m just focused on seeing connor.
Adam: Mm-hmm. Yes, he is, uh, very eager to see you.
Chelsea: It won’t be an easy conversation, explaining to him why I’m here and what I went through.
Adam: Well, we don’t have to, uh, worry about any of that right now, okay?
Chelsea: Actually, adam, we do.
Billy: She’s being released already? That’s really good news.
Sharon: Yeah. Chelsea doctor says that she’s getting stronger and she’s not a danger to herself or anyone else. So, she will have one last inpatient therapy session, and then she’ll be given the all-clear.
Billy: [ Sighs ] Okay. Well, that’s good. I’m really happy to hear that. Although I don’t — I don’t think it’s a good idea that she goes back to the grand phoenix. I think she needs to, you know, go someplace where she can start something fresh, you know?
Sharon: I agree. And I’ve already come up with a solution.
Sally: I invite you to brainstorm, and you bring me a bucket? And it is not even filled with muffins or a nice pumpkin chai.
Chloe: Miles left it in the sandbox. But we are going to fill it with positive things until it is overflowing with goodness.
Sally: You first.
Chloe: Okay. Um, first, we’re going to fill it with money…
[ Coins clatter ] …That we will be making very soon. And now our résumés will gleam now that we can add ceo and coo to our list of accomplishments.
Sally: And we have a wealth of knowledge and experience as fashion creators.
Chloe: Oh, not to mention all of the people that have worked for us. Our leadership skills are through the roof.
Sally: Well, our biggest problem now is figuring out what direction we choose next.
Chloe: I was thinking the same thing. I mean, the sky’s the limit.
Sally: Fashion, media. I mean, there’s nothing we can’t do.
Chloe: All we need to do is summon our good energy and maybe…
Sally: Good recruiters will come out of the woodworks and show some interest?
Chloe: No. No, we are going to create our own opportunity because we have the right ingredients. We just need that special sauce that brings it all together.
Sally: Okay, so, what do we do until we find this magical concoction?
Chloe: You know, we — we heat things up, you know, spice it up. You know, I mean, I’m running out of cooking analogies, but i think you know what I mean.
Sally: Not really.
Chloe: Okay, we just need to walk into a room and act like we own the place, right? I mean, we just got to take the lead.
Sally: Yeah, I mean, I’m certainly on board with that.
Chloe: Yeah, we can do it. And, you know, I mean, it also wouldn’t hurt if you would just accept nick’s offer to help us out.
Sally: Look, chloe, I already told you —
Chloe: Hey, nick. Come on over.
Chelsea: Dr. Malone and i both think it’s important that connor knows the truth about why I had to come here.
Adam: Eventually, chelsea.
Chelsea: Why not now?
Adam: I don’t think you should be taking that on just a few days after what happened, i mean, especially when you don’t even know where you’re gonna be living, chelsea.
Chelsea: It just feels like you’re making excuses as to why we shouldn’t tell our son the truth.
Adam: I just think it’s a little premature to discuss the details of an incident you have barely started working through yourself, chelsea. I mean, you know connor. He’s a very sensitive kid. This is gonna have a profound effect on him.
Chelsea: Connor is also a really smart kid, adam. And he’s gonna know there’s more to the story than what you’ve been telling him.
Adam: Well, I didn’t — i didn’t know what to tell him, chelsea. Sharon and billy kept me in the dark for so long.
Chelsea: They did that because they thought that’s what was best for me.
Adam: Okay. And right now, I’m just asking you to think about connor and what’s best for him. Alice loves the scent of gain so much,
Chloe: Okay, while my friend and former boss is too proud to ask for a favor, I am infinitely more practical. We need work. And not just for the financial reasons, but for a sense of purpose. You know, we are passionate about creating, communicating, and making waves, and it is no secret that we surpassed everyone’s expectations at newman media. So, just imagine what we could do in an industry where we have a history and a reputation. Fashion, for instance.
Sally: Chloe, I thought we said that we would figure this out on our own.
Nick: I’d like to hear what she has to say. So…humor me.
Sharon: Mariah and tessa are relocating to the tack house on the newman ranch. Victor and nikki offered that to them.
Billy: Okay. Well, that’s good for them. A little more space.
Sharon: So, that means that the apartment upstairs will be available.
Billy: For chelsea.
Sharon: I’ve already run it by her therapist, and she’s on board. So, as long as it’s okay with chelsea, of course.
Billy: [ Sighs ] You know, sharon, it’s really big of you. I mean, it’s one thing to help someone out in a jam, but you have gone above and beyond for someone that you’ve had a challenging relationship with in the past. Not everyone would stick their neck out like that.
Sharon: Well, I had to think about it a lot, believe me. But there are two things that led me to my decision. One is, I know rey would approve. And I just know in my own heart it’s the right thing to do. I hope chelsea feels the same way.
Chelsea: I am thinking about connor…and how he’s probably spent the past few days imagining all sorts of things have happened to me.
Adam: Well, I told him that you were sick. That was the truth. We don’t have to rush into telling him all the details, chelsea. That’s all that I’m saying.
Chelsea: Okay. But connor has to be a part of this. He has to know what happened, and he has to hear it from me. The last thing I want is him trying to interpret a bunch of half-truths or him, you know, seeing the way people look at me behind my back. Or, worse, what if he hears some gossiping about what really happened, adam? He’ll wonder why he didn’t tell him, or, worse, he will blame himself. No, we have to arm him with the truth. And my therapist agreed with me.
Adam: I really wish I had been a part of that conversation, chelsea.
Chelsea: [ Sighs ]
Adam: Okay, maybe we could talk to your therapist together on how to approach connor. We could talk about what to say to him, what to avoid, and find out if waiting is the best option.
Chelsea: [ Breathes deeply ] What I’m hearing you say is that you’ve made up your mind and you want to delay telling our son the truth.
Adam: Chelsea, I just don’t want to upset him more than he’s already been, okay? You haven’t been with him. You haven’t seen him. I have been trying to reassure him, but he’s been kicking himself for how he treated you over this whole johnny thing. He thinks he’s pushed you away. And I’m telling you, if for one second he thinks he pushed you this far, it worries me.
[ Knock on door ]
Dr. Malone: Hello.
Adam: Good to see you, dr. Malone.
Dr. Malone: Good to see you, too. Chelsea, you ready?
Chelsea: Yeah. Um… please just respect my decision on this.
Adam: Alright. Well, I’ll come back later to pick you up, and I want to help you with the transition.
Chelsea: No, someone else volunteered. Sharon. And, um, I think billy might come, too.
Adam: Well, I’m so happy that people are stepping up to help you, but, um, just consider what I said. Excuse me. I’m just gonna grab my coat. Alright. [ Clears throat ] You didn’t live this strong, this long to get put
Dr. Malone: You seem unsettled. Tell me how things went with adam.
Chelsea: [ Sighs ] Confusing. He doesn’t think we should tell connor the truth about what happened. He says it’s too soon and we need to wait.
Dr. Malone: Until?
Chelsea: Until I’m stronger, I guess?
[ Sighs ] I was just so confident about my decision after we spoke. But then I spoke to adam, and now I —
[ Sighs ] I don’t know. I mean, he’s — he’s a great father. I know he’s coming from a place of care and love and concern. I know he wants what’s best for our son.
Dr. Malone: Well, frankly, chelsea, what matters to me is how you feel. And, second, what’s best for connor. Do you think you’re in a strong enough position to handle this conversation with him?
Chelsea: I do. I know it’s gonna be one of the hardest conversations I’ve ever had with him, but he needs to hear the truth, and he needs to hear it from me… so I can eliminate any concern and so I can show him that I’m okay and, most importantly, that I can show him that this is nobody’s fault, especially not his.
Dr. Malone: Then the conversation we should be having is, what’s the best way to do that?
Billy: My initial thought is that chelsea would welcome the offer. But I can’t assume, you know? I just need to continue to take my cues from chelsea, what she needs, what she wants.
Sharon: Well, her doctor may have approved the release, but it’s still only been 72 hours since she was on the verge of taking her own life
Sharon: So, this is a very delicate time. Chelsea has a few more obstacles to navigate coming up here, and I don’t want to add to that.
Billy: Mm. Um…
Sharon: Hi, adam.
Adam: Hey. I, uh — I just wanted to let you know that I just saw chelsea.
Sharon: Oh, so you know that she’s being released today.
Adam: I do. I wanted to get your take on something we discussed. I can come back when you’re free.
Sharon: Well, we’ve already discussed that we need to work together as a team for chelsea’s sake, and it’s particularly important right now as she’s preparing to leave the facility.
Billy: I agree. I think we’re all on the same side here.
Adam: You’re right. Uh, I feel confused because the last time that I talked to chelsea, we agreed that we were gonna wait to tell connor what happened, and now, all of a sudden, she has gotten it in her head that she needs to tell him what happened right now, even though nothing in her life is settled. She doesn’t even have a place to live.
Sharon: Oh, well, actually, i was going to offer her the apartment upstairs.
Adam: Well, that’s very generous of you, sharon. I hope she accepts that. But what is, uh, really bothering me about all this is how it’s going to affect connor — because he’s trying to figure out who he is and where he fits in, in this world. And now he has all this other baggage on top of dealing with, uh, the confusion of finding out that chelsea is johnny’s biological mother.
Billy: So, what are you saying, adam? You don’t think that chelsea should tell connor?
Adam: I feel it’s best that we wait. But you have the experience and the degree. So, sharon, what do you think?
Sharon: What is her therapist saying?
Adam: [ Sighs ] I want your unbiased take, please.
Sharon: Okay, well, this is a difficult situation for everyone. Um, you know? But if chelsea feels like she’s ready to take this step, I think we need to support that choice. I think it’s important to be open and honest with connor. He’s going to take his cue on how to react based on your emotional state, so it’s important to remain positive and be consistent.
Adam: [ Sighs ]
Billy: I agree.
Sharon: What about you, adam?
Adam: I’d, uh, like to have a word with billy…alone.
Chloe: Okay, when sally came to town, like any true star, she just wanted to shine. And she didn’t allow for the fact that there is room for one more star in the galaxy, but she regrets getting off on the wrong foot with summer. Sally has changed. She has learned to focus her energies in a positive direction. And I know that summer doesn’t trust her, but I do. And summer trusts me. And she is the creative director of the hottest fashion house in town. So, all you need to do is convince summer that sally needs a second chance.
Sally: Chloe. Dial it back to zero now.
Chloe: [ Chuckles nervously ]
Sally: [ Sighs ] Ever leave your clothes in the dryer
Sally: Chloe, I told you we aren’t doing this.
Chloe: What? The worst thing he can say is no.
Sally: I don’t want anyone’s help. And, look, I’m sorry that she put you on the spot like that. I would never ask you to intervene and try and get us a job with summer at marchetti.
Ever. And it’s nothing against summer, of course. You know, I would be very lucky to work with her, but chloe was right. I was awful to her and to kyle, and I really feel terrible about that.
Nick: I know you do.
Chloe: But you also know that we would be an asset to marchetti. And with sally’s unique sense of style and my finger in the zeitgeist, I mean, we just — we just mix all of that up, and we could turn it into gold.
Nick: I have no doubt about that. And if I was in charge, I would hire you two in a second. But I don’t interfere in summer’s business, not even to ask for a favor. That’s not the nature of our relationship.
Sally: I am glad about that.
Chloe: Okay, well, you know, it was worth a try.
Nick: I do, however, have what I think is a better idea. If you are, in fact, interested in getting back into the fashion space, how about a loan from me? Then you can start your own label.
Dr. Malone: I realize that adam has concerns, and I’m in no way dismissing them. But I think it’s important to talk to a child connor’s age to help him understand what happened.
Chelsea: It’s a lot to digest.
Dr. Malone: Connor’s probably very confused right now and uncertain about what might be wrong. He may have created scenarios in his head that are causing him to feel fear or anger or guilt.
Chelsea: Well, adam’s afraid he’s gonna blame himself for what I did, that he’ll feel responsible because of the way he reacted when he found out johnny was his half-brother.
Dr. Malone: It’s not uncommon for children in this situation to feel that they’ve done something wrong or that they’re to blame. You need to make it clear to connor that he’s not at fault in any way. No one is. His mom had a difficult time, and she felt badly enough where she couldn’t see a way out of the pain. You don’t need to flood him with information. And I think it’s important for connor and for you to open up the dialogue. Make sure you talk to him in a safe environment for him, where he feels comfortable and free enough to express whatever emotions he’s having, even if it’s anger.
Billy: It seems like you got something you want to get off your chest. Why don’t you go ahead?
Adam: I wanted to say thank you, billy. I’m immensely grateful to you for stopping chelsea from stepping off that rooftop. You saved connor’s mother’s life, and I will never forget that.
Billy: Sounds like there’s a “but” on the horizon.
Adam: What does your continued involvement in chelsea’s recovery really mean? What is it you’re after, billy? Dancing is everything.
“The young and the restless”
For your most brilliant smile,
crest has you covered.
Billy: Well, you’re right, adam. There is something I want out of all of this.
Adam: Mm. That’s, um, typical. What is it?
Billy: I want chelsea to be better. I’m gonna go a step further. I want her to be happy. Is that okay with you?
Adam: [ Scoffs ] Is this a joke to you, billy?
Billy: I don’t expect you to understand this, but when I got chelsea off of that ledge, i made a promise to her to be there for her, to help her in any way that she needed. And I plan to make good on that promise.
Adam: How does lily feel about this dedication to chelsea, billy?
Billy: Right. Well, that — and among many other things — is none of your business. In fact, the only thing that you should be focusing on is your son and helping him.
Adam: You just — it seems like you have a lot of influence on chelsea right now. I mean, she’s in a vulnerable state.
Billy: I hope you’re not implying that I’m leading her down the wrong direction.
Adam: No, what I think you did is told her exactly what she wanted to hear, that she should throw all of this at connor with no thought how this will affect him. Just as long as it makes chelsea feel better, you know, bring it on.
Billy: Well, you’re wrong. And, look, I’m not going to presume to know what’s best in this situation. In fact, it’s uncharted territory for me, as well. And I get it. You want to be cautious. And what you and chelsea decide to do with your son and how you plan on handling that is none of my business. But I will say this. I think we need to take our cues from dr. Malone. She’s the professional, and she’s the only one that is equipped to give advice.
[ Door opens ]
Adam: [ Sighs ]
Chloe: This is an extraordinary offer. And I know I speak for sally when I say —
Sally: Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts, but we have to decline.
Chloe: No, we don’T. Sally and her wacky sense of humor.
Sally: Okay, while your offer is incredibly generous, I’m afraid that we’re gonna have to speak about this internally and then we can circle back around. I’m sure you understand.
Nick: Yeah. Of course.
Chloe: Okay, sally, um, you know, maybe we should talk about this in private a bit more and —
[ Cellphone pings ] You got to be kidding me. I just — [ Sighs ] Uh, just a moment. My sitter is having issues. Um, I — let me just deal with this. If you make any decisions without consulting me first, I am going to be very disappointed.
Sally: [ Clears throat ]
Nick: So, this is a first, uh, being in a position where i feel like I just offered to do someone a favor and then immediately feel like I need to apologize.
Sally: Well, I am not used to people going out of their way to do me a favor, so forgive my awkwardness.
Nick: No, I’m sorry for putting you in that position. It’s just, chloe was talking, the idea just kind of came to me. It’s not like I have some grand plan to make it up to you for my sister mistakenly firing you.
Sally: So, then what is this?
Nick: It’s a loan. That’s it. The kind where I give you money, you give it back, not in the form of kisses — well, maybe kiss– no, no, no. No kisses. No hugs. No coupons for hugs. Just cash.
Sally: This just sounds like a colossally bad idea.
Nick: All of the best adventures of my life have started off with those exact words.
Sally: [ Chuckles ]
Nick: Alright, I’ll tell you what. While you consider that offer, maybe think about another one.
Sally: Okay. I’m afraid to ask.
Nick: Drinks. You and me just hanging out, not talking about me offering you money to start your own business.
Sally: Okay, so, if we don’t talk about that, then what’s left?
Nick: I mean, there’s just so many fascinating topics. Let’s start with one of my favorites — me.
Sally: [ Chuckles ]
Nick: Look, the last time we were together, you told me about where you wanted to be in life. I think it’s time I told you what I was thinking.
Sally: I would like that very much.
Chelsea: Thank you, dr. Malone, for everything you’ve done.
Dr. Malone: You’re the one who’s done the hard work, chelsea.
Chelsea: I’m definitely in a better headspace.
Dr. Malone: Can you tell me a little bit about where you are right now?
Chelsea: Um, definitely thinking more clearly. Um, I was in such turmoil for so long, and I was taking it out on the people that were close to me, especially my friend chloe.
Dr. Malone: She’s a good friend?
Chelsea: Yeah, she’s the best. You know? We definitely hit a rough patch because of my issues, but i think I should tell her the truth, too.
Dr. Malone: Sounds like a good idea. I’m sure she’ll give you plenty of love and support.
Chelsea: I hope so.
Dr. Malone: You’ve done a lot of good work, chelsea. You should feel proud of the commitment that you made to address the root causes of what brought you here. It won’t happen overnight. You’ll have rough days ahead. We all do. But just know you’re strong enough to make it through. And reach out for help when you need it.
Chelsea: I will. I promise.
Dr. Malone: Good. And call me once you’ve had a chance to talk to connor so we can discuss how it went.
Chelsea: Okay. I definitely will.
Sharon: Hey. Oh, sorry. I didn’t realize you were still in your meeting.
Dr. Malone: It’s fine. We’re just finishing up. You have your instructions and a list of appointments and numbers.
Dr. Malone: And your friends. Rely on them. All of them.
Chelsea: I will. Thank you, dr. Malone.
Dr. Malone: Be well. And we’ll be in touch.
Billy: Thank you, doctor.
Chelsea: Hey there. I didn’t know you’d be coming.
Billy: Where else would I be as a core member of your support crew?
Chelsea: [ Laughs ]
Billy: And as such, I — i just want to let you know that there’s absolutely no rush. If you feel like you need more time to catch your breath a little bit or spend a few more days in here, you do whatever’s right for you.
Chelsea: No, I’m — I’m ready. I’m ready to go.
Billy: Okay. Let’s get out of here then.
Chelsea: There’s just one slight problem. Um, I don’t have anywhere to go. I haven’t had time to make arrangements, and I don’t want to go back to the hotel for obvious reasons.
Billy: Yeah, of course.
Chelsea: Maybe you could drop me off somewhere that, like, has internet. I could get online and find someplace to stay.
Sharon: Um, let’s go do that.
Chelsea: Alright, you guys keep making looks at each other. So, what’s going on?
Billy: All in due time. Let’s hit the road.
One bounty versus two of the
leading ordinary brand
Chloe: Sorry for the interruption. So, where are we?
Nick: You know what? I’m gonna leave you two to discuss things. I hope you seriously consider my offer. Just let me know.
Chloe: We will.
Sally: [ Sighs ]
Chloe: I know you’re having reservations, but, oh, my god, sally, nick wants us to succeed. I mean, he’s giving us a chance to make our dreams a reality. And it’s not free money, which i know could make you feel like there might be strings attached. It’s a loan that we could pay back as soon as humanly possible.
Sally: Yes, I know. Nick said the same thing. I just don’t want to be in anyone’s debt, okay? And — and things with nick and me are still a little blurry. Something might be happening.
Chloe: Okay. Is that what you want?
Sally: [ Sighs ] What if it doesn’t work out?
Chloe: Then it doesn’t work out. There are no guarantees in life, but it’s not like nick is just going to walk away and demand the money back.
Sally: That’s not the point.
Chloe: You need to take your personal feelings out of this and look at it for what it is. It’s a business transaction.
Sally: I learned the hard way that it is not that simple. Look at what happened at newman media. My past involvement with adam tainted my entire tenure there as ceo, at least in victoria’s eyes.
Chloe: Yeah, because she hates adam. This is a totally different situation.
Sally: No. No, I have to keep my personal life separate from our professional future, and it’s gonna be a heck of a lot easier if I am not involved with our banker.
Chloe: Okay, will you just work with me here, okay? This kind of opportunity comes once in a lifetime, if you are very, very lucky. And we will make sure that you’re comfortable with this and make the most out of it. Just please don’t say no. Not yet. Promise me. Just promise me that you’ll at least think about it.
Dr. Malone: Oh, didn’t expect to see you back here.
Adam: Um, I, uh — I came to see chelsea. I had some second thoughts about our earlier conversation.
Dr. Malone: She’s been discharged. She left with sharon and billy.
Adam: Of course.
Dr. Malone: She’s lucky to have so much support. She’s gonna need a lot of that in the coming months.
Adam: Well, I promise she will get it.
Sharon: How you feeling?
Chelsea: Um, I’m not sure.
[ Chuckles ] But it is really nice to be back here.
Sharon: Um, would you like some tea?
Chelsea: Sure. I’d love a cup. I’m just gonna focus on trying to find myself a place to rent, at least short term.
Sharon: Oh, um, billy and i had a conversation about this earlier. That’s what the looks on our faces were that you saw before. And I also went over this with dr. Malone.
Billy: We both thought that going back to the grand phoenix probably wouldn’t be the best idea, and so sharon had a great idea that she ran by me.
Sharon: Um, tessa and mariah were living upstairs for a little while, but they’ve decided to move to the tack house on the newman ranch, just to give them more space.
Chelsea: Are babies on the horizon?
Sharon: Well, fingers crossed. They have begun the adoption process.
Chelsea: Oh, wow. That’s wonderful news.
Sharon: Yeah, which means, um, the apartment upstairs is now up for rent, if you’re interested. It’s really cute. And, um, it has a lot of light, and, um, it’s pretty comfortable. I happen to think it’s a fabulous location.
Chelsea: I don’t understand. Why would you offer that to me after everything I’ve done to you?
Sharon: I offered because i want to do this for you. And, you know, there’s room for connor, too. And you have the best coffeehouse in town downstairs.
Chelsea: I don’t know what to say.
Billy: Say yes. Do it for the cinnamon buns.
Sharon: Do it for yourself.
Chelsea: Thank you. Yes. [ Chuckles ] Thank you so much. Who says you have to spend more on skincare
Adam: I am aware that i played a pivotal role in getting you off track. And because I feel responsible for so much of your pain, I’m invested in just trying to get you some relief.
Chelsea: So maybe this isn’t about me at all. Maybe this is just the guilt talking.
Sally: 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.
Chloe: You did this to yourself. You pushed too hard. Your desperate pursuit made sally run in the opposite direction, and now she finally has room in her life for good things.
Adam: Look, there has been a lot of conflict between us lately, and I think it would be good if we got to the root cause of it.
Nick: [ Sighs ] Look, if you’re gonna bring up sally, just don’T.
Adam: We need to talk about it, nick.
Adam: Because I’m still in love with sally.
Adam: And I want you to know that I am truly, deeply sorry for lying to you, for hurting you…and for loving you.
Sally: Loving me?
Adam: If I never would have fallen in love with you, we wouldn’t be where we are now, sally. Okay, I need you to know, as much as I treasure the memories of all the joyous times we spent together, I would have given it all up if it meant that I never caused you a moment of pain.
Sally: I could never regret anything that gave me so much… and felt so good.
Adam: I know you may think you have feelings for nick, but he’s just a way to help you forget what you and I have.
Sally: So, this is about nick.
Adam: No. It’s — no, it’s not. What — what I meant to say is —
Sally: No, I know — I know what you meant because you — you — you said it. You opened your mouth. The words came out. So, thank you for being honest. I mean, everybody knows your history with your brother. I mean, is this really even about me, or is this just about beating nick? He can get some good job at newman, but you could stop him from getting me? Did you mean anything that you just said? Or is this some power move to best nick and win me back like some kind of prize?
Adam: [ Sighs ]
[ Door opens ]
Chelsea: So, this is my place now.
Billy: Just waiting on some personal touches.
Chelsea: You both have been so unbelievably kind to me, and you have every reason not to be. I mean, sharon, our history? The word “messy” doesn’t even begin to explain it. And, billy —
Billy: We don’t need to worry about that right now. The only thing that matters is that we’re here for you, now and into the future.
Sharon: And I would stay and give you a full tour, but I just got a text from mariah and she needs me at the tack house to help her with some unpacking. So, um, chelsea, welcome home.
Chelsea: Thank you, sharon. That means more to me than you know.
Sharon: Alright. Text me if you need anything.
[ Door opens ]
[ Door closes ]
Chelsea: Wow. I don’t even know what to say.
Billy: Well, that’s odd because that was never a problem when we were podcasting.
Chelsea: [ Chuckles ] I honestly don’t know if I could have gotten through this without you.
Billy: I do. You would have because you’re strong. But I am happy to be here for you.
Chelsea: God, I feel like i need to, like, send lily a gift or something. I’m taking up all your time. I’m taking you away from her, from your work.
Billy: That’s okay. She knows that you need the attention right now. She’ll understand.
Sharon: Does she know the whole story about me?
Billy: [ Sighs ] No, I wasn’t sure how much you wanted to share, so I — I kept it pretty vague.
Chelsea: So she doesn’t really understand. She doesn’t know how bad it got. I don’t want her to get the wrong idea, billy, so [Sighs] You need to tell lily the truth.
Adam: Thank you.
Nick: [ Sighs ]
Adam: Well, look who it is. My, uh, wonderful brother. Bartender, hey, uh, drinks are on him.
