Tessa: So, what kind of turnout can we expect?
Sharon: Well, it’s been a pretty rough year for a lot of folks, so I would be prepared for a big crowd.
Nick: Don’t worry about the food. New hope’s got you covered there. There’s going to be mounds of it for the guests.
Mariah: Wow, look at that. Ashland locke managed to do some good in this world despite himself.
Sharon: Well, that huge donation he made to new hope in rey’s honor, I will always be grateful for.
Nick: Before we begin with the food prep, um, I come bearing gifts. Christian wanted to contribute, so he made, uh, you know, decorations.
Mariah: That’s adorable.
Nick: Yeah, he wanted to bring them by himself, but he is staying home so he can make thanksgiving cards.
Sharon: Oh, so that’s what noah meant when he said he had to supervise an art project.
Nick: Yeah, they’ll be here later. Except for faith’S. I told her I’d take a picture of hers and make sure she gets it today.
Sharon: Oh, our sweet girl. I miss her so much. But, you know, it’s great that she’s such close friends with her roommate that she decided to go home with her for the holiday.
Victoria: Happy thanksgiving.
Sharon: Happy thanksgiving.
Sharon: I’m so glad you decided to join us. You know, we were just about to get started setting up.
Victoria: Oh, excellent. Well, put us to work.
Nick: Looks like you’re short a couple hands. Where’s katie?
Victoria: Oh, well, she actually decided to go to the ranch and help the cook with dinner there.
Johnny: I want to know what part she’s “helping” with before I eat it.
[ Laughter ]
Nick: Yeah, I wonder if she’s going to get your mom’s skills in the kitchen.
Victoria: Well, at least i know how to make a reservation.
[ Laughter ]
Chelsea: Hey, everybody.
Sharon: Hi, you two.
Connor: Hey, there.
Chelsea: We’d like to volunteer. We have a dinner, but it’s not till later, so we’d like to donate our time since we have so much to be thankful for.
Abby: I hope this table’s okay.
Nikki: Oh, darling, it’s perfect. We’re just having coffee.
Abby: Great. I will have someone bring it over.
Victor: I didn’t know that you would still be here.
Abby: Well, we are sold out for a holiday dining event, and I wanted to be here to personally oversee all the details.
Victor: I see, I see. Well, I’m sure it’ll be a great success.
Abby: Well, I’m surprised to see the both of you here. I thought you’d be getting everything ready for the family gathering.
Nikki: Well, you know how your father is. He can’t stay away from newman even on a holiday.
Victor: What are you talking about? Speak for yourself. I know that you checked up on your office.
Nikki: Guilty as charged.
Nikki: So we’re just going to relax a bit before heading back to the ranch.
Victor: Of course, we’re looking forward to seeing you later with chance and our grandson.
Abby: Yeah, um, to be honest, chance and i are having some problems, so we won’t be spending the day together.
Victor: Huh. Sorry to hear that.
Nikki: I hope you’ll be able to work things out.
Abby: Thank you. Thank you for your concern. Um…I don’t want to get into the details right now, so, uh, if you’ll excuse me.
Nikki: You had no idea about this?
Victor: I have no clue.
[ Screams ] Daniel! Oh, my gosh.
Daniel: Happy thanksgiving.
Phyllis: Happy thanksgiving to you. Look at you. Very nice.
Daniel: Oh, thank you.
Phyllis: Yeah. I didn’t know you were coming back into town. Why didn’t you tell me?
Daniel: I wanted to surprise you.
Phyllis: Oh, you did.
Daniel: It’s a good surprise?
Phyllis: Yes, it’s a great surprise. My baby boy. My baby boy. Ah.
Traci: [ Chuckles ]
Kyle: Harrison is upstairs decorating turkey handprints.
Summer: He is so excited to be here with everyone today.
Jack: Yeah, he’s not the only one.
Allie: I am thrilled to be spending my first thanksgiving with my new family.
Traci: And we are so thrilled to have you here with us.
[ Chuckles ]
[ Doorbell rings ]
Kyle: I’ll get it.
Ashley: I think it’s so fantastic that we’re all here together. All of us loved ones sharing this day, it makes me happy.
Traci: It is fantastic, and the more the merrier, right?
Jack: I’m just so glad you could all be here.
Diane: Happy thanksgiving, everyone.
Music (“I swear”) plays
Abby: I wasn’t expecting to see you today.
Devon: I know. Tucker wanted to meet and have a holiday meal together, so we thought we’d beat the rush.
Abby: Well, I’m glad. Things have been so chaotic since…what happened. And, um…I don’t know. Something about seeing your face, it just makes me feel more calm.
Devon: I’m glad I can do something good for you. Have, uh, things gotten any better at all with chance?
Abby: No, um, I’m pretty sure it’s over. He moved out of the house. I don’t even know where he’s staying. He only comes by to see dominic when he knows I’m not going to be there.
Devon: I’m sorry.
Victor: I really thought chance was a good match for her. What the hell happened?
Nikki: I’m sure you’ll find out soon enough. But abby made it clear today is not the day to have that conversation. So patience, darling.
Sharon: That’s so sweet of you guys to want to help. We would love to have you.
Chelsea: Well, it seems like a great way to celebrate the holiday. Plus, it’s the least I can do, considering I’m living right upstairs now.
Victoria: You are?
Chelsea: Yeah, sharon’s the new landlady. Mariah and tessa moved to the tack house, so sharon offered me their old place. So where can we start?
Sharon: Well, you can help me with something in the back, and, connor, why don’t you take this box of decorations out to the patio?
Nick: Don’t forget these.
Chelsea: [ Chuckles ]
Nick: Here you go, dude.
Sharon: And, victoria, if you wouldn’t mind rolling silverware sets into napkins, that would be a really big help. And, johnny, why don’t you have connor on the patio?
Sharon: Okay, well, let’s get to it, everybody.
Victoria: You okay?
Connor: Yeah. Fine. But I should go get started.
Victoria: Okay. Sharon gave chelsea the apartment upstairs. When did this happen? What did I miss?
Nick: I don’t know. Chelsea said sharon’s been incredibly kind and generous to her. Maybe just chalk it up to holiday spirit.
Victoria: Maybe. But it seems like there might be more to it than just that.
Connor: I need to talk to you about something so you’ll be cool around my mom. Not say anything mean to her.
Johnny: I was just planning on avoiding her. What’s going on?
Connor: Things were worse than I thought. Mom got super depressed and had to go into a hospital.
Connor: I think she’s better. They wouldn’t have let her out otherwise. Dad let me stay over last night and she seems okay, but she takes a lot of deep breaths like she’s stressed out. I know she’s trying real hard to act normal.
Johnny: When I found out she was my biological mother, I completely freaked out. Acted like a total jerk to her.
Connor: I get it. You were worried things might change. So was I.
Johnny: I completely froze out chelsea. I didn’t mean for anything like this to happen.
Connor: I felt the same way and talked to my mom about it. Like, what brought this on.
Johnny: Yeah? And?
Connor: She keeps saying it wasn’t any one thing, and it’s definitely not about you or me.
Johnny: But is that really true?
[ Sighs ]
Mariah: You got it?
Sharon: Wow, more helping hands. Excellent.
Lily: Yeah, thanks. Of course. How can we help?
Sharon: Why don’t you ask victoria?
Victoria: Hey. Happy thanksgiving. Um, are charlie and mattie home?
Lily: Uh, no. They’re staying in new york.
Victoria: Oh, well, I’m sure you must miss them terribly.
Lily: Uh, yeah, but I tell myself there’s always christmas.
Billy: I got your text. So, uh, johnny’s here, but katie’s already at the ranch?
Victoria: Yeah, she sent me the cutest message, wearing an apron. Here’s a picture of it. I’m not sure what she’s making.
[ Chuckles ]
Billy: Oh, lordy.
Lily: Uh, you know, will you excuse me? Chelsea, hi.
Chelsea: Hey, lily. Happy thanksgiving.
Lily: Thank you. You, too. Um, I haven’t seen you since I heard the news, and I just had some things that I wanted to say. Moderate to severe eczema still disrupts my skin.
Phyllis: How long has it been since you’ve been home with your mother?
Daniel: Way too long.
Phyllis: Wa-a-a-y too long. That’s the correct answer. Way too long. But I’m glad you’re here now. Mm-hmm.
Daniel: You’re usually not this sentimental.
Phyllis: Oh, I’m not?
Daniel: No, you’re not.
Phyllis: Last year sucked for me. It was horrible. You were gone. Summer was across the ocean with her own family. I was all alone. But you’re here. It’s a good reason to give thanks.
Daniel: I’m a little surprised that you wanted to meet here. I figured you’d want to go to some fancy restaurant and have a proper meal.
Phyllis: Really? I don’t want to do that.
Daniel: You sure?
Phyllis: Who are you talking to? Who are you talking to? Let’s have chinese. I’ll do that.
Phyllis: Let’s have chinese. Let’s go out. Let’s go out to, um, that place that you always used to go to — I’ve never been there — in burlington.
Daniel: You want to go to the place in burlington?
Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Yes. Do I?
Phyllis: But let’s go have fun, and then maybe we can meet up with summer for dessert or something after she does her thing with the abbott family.
Daniel: [ Laughs ]
Phyllis: And, uh, how’s that sound?
Daniel: Sounds perfect.
Daniel: [ Chuckles ]
Abby: I’m sorry. I’m not trying to make this all about me. How are you doing?
Devon: Well, I’m — I’m hanging in there. I don’t want you worrying about me at all, though. You have enough on your plate.
Victor: Hello, devon.
Devon: Mr. And mrs. Newman, hello.
Victor: Happy thanksgiving.
Devon: Happy thanksgiving.
Nikki: Good to see you. Thank you.
Devon: Good to see you, as well.
Abby: Are you taking off?
Victor: Yeah. Got to go.
Abby: Okay, I will walk you out.
Devon: Take care.
Nikki: Good to see you.
Victor: Devon, nice to see you.
Devon: Yeah, you, as well.
Abby: I am so sorry, but I’m going to have to skip the family dinner tonight.
Nikki: Oh, darling, are you sure?
Victor: You can still come without chance.
Abby: I know, but I just feel like, with everything going on, I’m just going to bury myself in work and spend the rest of the day with dominic. But we will stop by the ranch to see you guys soon. Or, if you’d like, dominic’s there at our place with the nanny if you want to stop and see him on your way home.
Nikki: Well, we just might do that. But we understand. Don’t worry about it.
Abby: Thank you. Um, I’m going to get back to work, but happy thanksgiving.
Victor: You, too, sweetheart.
Abby: Mwah. I love you. Happy thanksgiving.
Nikki: Happy thanksgiving.
Tucker: Hello, there. Nice to see you both.
Nikki: We were just leaving.
Tucker: [ Chuckles ] Oh, hey, by the way, uh, I understand that ashley passed along the information about diane. I assume you’re pleased to get that and, uh, will be putting it to good use.
Nikki: Hopefully, it will encourage her to bid farewell to genoa city. We’ll just have to see.
Victor: You know, tucker mccall, I think we’d all be better off when you and diane get the hell out of town.
Tucker: Well, I hate to disappoint you, victor, but I have a couple more things to accomplish here. But, uh, happy thanksgiving.
Victor: Hey, tucker, you just remember I’m watching you.
Allie: Guys, there are so many pies in the kitchen.
Jack: Yeah, we abbotts take our desserts very seriously.
Kyle: Along with every other course.
Diane: I’m sure every bite will be divine.
Ashley: I’ll take this bottle back with the rest of them.
Kyle: Allie, what were some of your traditions growing up?
Allie: For thanksgiving, uh, let’s see.
Diane: Obviously, ashley isn’t thrilled that I’m here. I hope she can refrain on stirring up any trouble today of all days.
Jack: I agree. I have already warned her to cool it on the antagonism.
Diane: I appreciate that.
Jack: Please don’t read too much into that. Things are not completely resolved, as I see it.
Diane: I know I have a long way to go to get back into your good graces.
Traci: Hey, everybody, look who’s here.
[ Chuckles ]
Harrison: Happy turkey day!
Jack: Happy turkey day, indeed.
Summer: Happy thanksgiving.
[ Laughter ]
Summer: Oh, my gosh.
Jack: Look at that.
Summer: Awesome. ()
Lily: I really hope that you’re doing better.
Chelsea: Thank you, lily. That’s very kind. I appreciate the support.
Lily: So how are things going so far?
Chelsea: Um, I’m taking it day by day. I was in crisis. It was crucial that I got the help that I needed. I really can’t thank billy enough. He truly saved my life.
Johnny: We can stop pretending. I know chelsea went to the hospital because she was seriously depressed. It was bad. Connor filled me in.
Billy: Okay, well, now that you know, how do you feel?
Johnny: I think the crappy way I’ve been treating her ever since I found out that she was my bio mom may have really hurt her.
Billy: I know for certain that chelsea doesn’t feel that way, okay, and she would not want you to think that way, not for a second.
Johnny: Maybe not, but I still feel bad about it.
Johnny: I’d like to talk to her if you think that’d be okay.
Billy: I’m okay with it.
Victoria: If it’s that important to you.
Johnny: It is. And I’d like to do it now before a ton of people come for dinner and we’re all too busy.
Billy: You want me to come with you?
Johnny: Dad, no. Come on. No offense. Sorry.
Billy: Okay, yeah. None taken.
Johnny: [ Sighs ] Excuse me, could I talk to chelsea a sec?
Lily: Yeah, of course. Um, I have to get back to work anyway, but I’m really glad that you’re doing better.
Chelsea: Thanks. Have a seat, johnny.
Connor: Thanks. What would you like to talk about?
Billy: I know this comes as a shock to you.
Victoria: Yes. Poor chelsea. I had no idea she was in such a fragile state. How serious was this?
Billy: About as serious as it gets. We’re lucky to have her with us still. That first 72 hours in the hospital were crucial, but she’s doing better. I can tell she’s on a good path now.
Victoria: Well, I’m relieved to hear that, but why am I finding this out from johnny now instead of you?
Diane: Harrison, I just love my turkey handprint. I’m going to hang it on my mirror so I can enjoy it every day.
Kyle: Ooh, you hear that, buddy? Your turkeys are a hit. Great job.
Traci: They are. Every single one is just beautiful.
Allie: Yeah, harrison, you might be a little picasso.
Summer: It looks like we’ve got a few extras.
Traci: Nope, no extras. The red one is for phyllis. The pink one is for abby.
Diane: Speaking of phyllis, how is she spending her holiday?
Summer: My brother daniel is in town, so she’s spending the day with him, and I’m going to catch up with them later.
Diane: Sounds nice.
Kyle: What about abby? What’s she up to today?
Ashley: She’s at society, helping with the preparations for their special thanksgiving event. Then she’s going over to the ranch for dinner, and, of course, I’ll be squeezing in some time for them both later, her and dominic.
Diane: I’m sure they’d love to see you.
Ashley: Because that’s what a mother does. I mean, a good mother manages to spend as much time as she can with her child.
Jack: Will noah be dropping by.
Allie: Yes, yes. He’s coming in right after he makes the rounds with the newmans.
Jack: Well, I hope he likes pie.
Allie: Oh, god, yes. He loves anything sweet.
Jack: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, clearly he does.
[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh, excuse me.
Ashley: Do you think that when noah gets here, we can swap him out for diane and just tell her there’s not enough room at the table?
Traci: Ashley, come on. It’s thanksgiving. I’m begging you.
Jack: I just got a text from billy. They are taking part in the annual thanksgiving dinner for the homeless at crimson lights. He and lily say they’re running late, and they don’t know when they’re going to get here. Or, as billy says, “don’t let that bird get cold.”
[ Laughter ] So…dinner is served.
Kyle: Hey, hey, let’s do it.
Diane: Let’s go get some dinner.
Kyle: Hey, we’re going to go eat.
Diane: Come on.
Kyle: Oh, come on. Alright, come on. For people who are a little intense about hydration.
“The young and the restless”
will continue. What happens to your body language
Billy: It wasn’t my story to tell. I mean, that circle of trust was very small. It was sharon and i and, of course, chelsea.
Victoria: Well, I guess that explains why she’s been going out of her way for chelsea lately.
Billy: Sharon? Yeah, she’s been amazing, and her professional experience has been a godsend. And she agrees that this is chelsea’s story and she can choose when and how she wants to share it.
Victoria: Makes sense.
Billy: Look, if it makes you feel any better, adam and connor and lily, they only found out about this yesterday.
Victoria: And now johnny knows. I-I feel sorry for chelsea, and I don’t want to see her suffer, but our son has to be my top priority.
Victoria: Just how much has connor told him? What’s chelsea saying to him now? And how’s this going to affect things moving forward?
Billy: I know that chelsea was pretty open with connor, but it doesn’t seem like connor got into the details with johnny.
Victoria: This is heavy stuff for kids that age.
Billy: It is. I’m worried about him, as well, okay, but some of this is out of our control. We just have to be there for johnny as he processes all of this.
Victoria: [ Sighs ] I suppose.
Billy: I mean, look at him. He seems to be handling it with empathy and maturity. Maybe we should follow his lead.
Connor: Anyway, I know it really hurt you with the way i reacted when mom and dad told me the truth about how we’re…related, and as upset as I was, I shouldn’t have gone after you like that. So I’m really sorry if it messed you up, and I hope you’re okay now.
Chelsea: [ Sighs ] Johnny, thank you for saying that. That means so much to me. But [Sighs] You need to know none of this is your problem. You are not to blame. I really owe you an apology for ever putting you in an awkward position. And you have to believe me when I tell you that what happened to me was the result of a lot of things going on in my life. You know, I just went through a rough patch, but I’m better now.
Chelsea: Really. Yeah. And I need you to know, I think you’re a great kid with terrific parents.
[ Chuckles ] And you’ve always been so kind to connor, and that truly means the world to me. So I’m just hoping…
[ Sighs ] I’m hoping, going forward, we can be friends.
Lily: Hey, I think it’s so great that everyone’s rallying around chelsea.
Sharon: Yeah, she really needs it right now.
Lily: Yeah, billy told me how much you’ve done for her since that night, and that must be such a good feeling.
Sharon: I’m happy that i could be there for chelsea, yeah. But, you know, you deserve a lot of credit, too.
Lily: For what?
Sharon: For the way you’ve hung in there with billy. He’s spent a lot of time helping chelsea these past few days. He’s put a lot of energy into that, and that had to be confusing for you if not frustrating.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Well, I mean, that was then and this is now, so, hopefully, things will be calmer from here on out.
Daniel: You know, I heard that you have been knocking it out of the park at marchetti.
Daniel: And how great is it that you and summer get to work together?
Phyllis: Yeah, that’s super fun.
Phyllis: Ah, we’ve been talking about me nonstop. I want to talk about you. There’s so much — you know, we have just been texting. We have not really spoken voice-to-voice, okay, and I know there are some details that I’m missing out on.
Daniel: Ah, what details? Come on.
Phyllis: Details. You know. What’s going on with you? So, lucy and heather, where are they?
Daniel: Well, heather got a short-term gig working as a lawyer for this american company in portugal. She took lucy with her.
Phyllis: Interesting. You didn’t go with them?
Daniel: Eh, you know, I figured it’d be a good experience for lucy to spend some time abroad. And, look, I had a ton of stuff that I needed to take care of that couldn’t wait.
Phyllis: Yeah, like what?
Tucker: I’m delighted you were able to accept my invitation. I figured you and lily would’ve had plans.
Devon: No, nothing big. She’s just going to come hang at my place a little later.
Tucker: Nice. Now, it’s been too many years since you and I shared a holiday. That’s on me, of course.
Devon: Nah, you know what? It’s not on anybody. It’s just the way things are.
Tucker: You know, I’d like things to be different from now on, maybe be a more regular part of your life.
[ Sneezing ] Are you okay?
Abby: Um, maybe that table over there would be good?
Elena: Maybe we should go somewhere else.
Nate: Nope, we’re not going to play it like that.
Elena: Are you sure about that?
Nate: Baby, this is your favorite restaurant. We’re not going to run away because my cousin happens to be in the same room. Excuse me. Hello. Good to see you two.
Devon: Not really.
Nate: Can’t we at least be civil to one another on thanksgiving?
Tucker: See, I don’t think thanksgiving means giving a free pass to someone who stabbed you in the back. What you were planning to do to your family’s just reprehensible. And I don’t foresee devon forgiving you anytime soon, if ever.
Nate: You finished?
Tucker: Hey, man, you made your choice. If you regret it, that’s your problem. You deal with it. You’re going to leave devon alone now.
Phyllis: There’s more to the story, right?
Daniel: [ Chuckles ] Yeah.
Daniel: I had a feeling I wasn’t going to be able to hide anything from you.
Phyllis: What “anything”? What?
Daniel: Let’s just say that things with heather have been a bit rocky, and they have been for a while, I mean, before the whole trip came up. Look, I really don’t want to get into it. Not right now, anyway.
Phyllis: Okay. Well, I mean, everything seemed like it was okay in june when I saw you.
Phyllis: Alright. Well, I’m not going to push. I won’t do that. But, uh… I am here for you. I am always here for you. Okay? And your sister, she is here for you. And whatever you need, just call me, okay?
Daniel: [ Sighs ]
Phyllis: Hey, what are your big plans, by the way?
Daniel: [ Chuckles ] Well, I’m thinking of starting a new chapter of my life. I’ve been channeling my talents in a new direction.
Phyllis: Oh, my goodness. A new direction. Wow. I like hearing this, even though you haven’t told me anything.
[ Both chuckle ]
Phyllis: Well, that is reason to celebrate. Clink.
Jack: While we are waiting for the first course, I thought we might go around the table and each say what we are most thankful for today. I think it’d be a good example for harrison. Who wants to go first?
Ashley: I will. I am so grateful for my family and how unified we all are.
Traci: I am so blessed by all of you lovely people who love me and support me every single day.
Allie: I’ll go next. I am so thankful for finding this wonderful family after losing my dad.
Kyle: Summer and harrison.
Summer: Kyle and harrison.
[ Laughter ]
Traci: Harrison, what about you, honey? What are you the most thankful for?
Harrison: Mashed potatoes.
[ Laughter ]
Jack: Diane, would you like to say something?
Diane: Oh, um, I’m grateful for kyle and being able to be reunited with him. And for my amazing grandson, harrison.
[ Chuckles ] And just for being allowed to be part of this family.
Traci: Well, everybody, your words had been quite moving, but I have to admit harrison is my absolute favorite. So extra mashed potatoes for my friend over there.
[ Laughter ]
Jack: I asked for no conflict today. Just today.
Ashley: There is no conflict, jack. I suggest you tell diane not to get too comfy here.
Allie: I want several.
Jack: Everybody get some rolls?
Traci: Oh, yes. Would you like some?
Jack: Yeah, I would love. I tried everything to remove fabric odors,
Nick: Alright, the line’s already. Halfway down the block. We’re going to open up the doors soon.
Sharon: Wow. Good work, everyone.
[ Cheers and applause ]
Nick: My man, connor, and I, we need an extra set of hands to get the food out of the catering van.
Lily: I’ll help.
Nick: Alright, alright, lily, let’s go.
Lily: [ Chuckles ]
Mariah: Okay, so what else do you need from us?
Sharon: How about an update? That young woman, joss, who’s been considering you as adoptive parents for her baby. What’s the latest? I know that you were anxious to hear more from her.
Tessa: Well, we were going to wait to tell you until after the holiday, but last night we got an e-mail from her, and, apparently, her cousin will be taking the child after the birth.
Sharon: [ Gasps ] Wow. That’s disappointing. I’m so sorry.
Mariah: Yeah, so are we. But she was really nice about it. And she said that she was so impressed with us, and if it had been anybody but family, then she would’ve picked us.
Tessa: Which means a lot.
Mariah: Yeah. I think it gives us some hope.
Sharon: Well, I’m glad you’re staying positive, and you’ll connect with the right birth mother soon.
Mariah: Well, christine prepared us. You know, she said that this possibly wouldn’t work out, and we knew that adoption was going to be a tough road.
Tessa: But the day that we finally bring home our baby, it’ll all be worth it.
Victoria: How did your talk with chelsea go?
Johnny: Good. I told her that I was sorry to hear how sad she was and that i never wanted to add to any of it.
Victoria: What did she say?
Johnny: She said that it had nothing to do with me. And she’s okay now.
[ Sighs ] I’m really glad I talked to her. It was the right thing to do.
Victoria: I’m very proud of you, son. I’m proud of you for being compassionate, for following your heart.
Billy: So, you’re quite the center of attention today.
Chelsea: Everyone has been so kind. You will not hear me complaining.
Billy: Well, that’s good. How’d your conversation with johnny go.
Chelsea: [ Sighs ] He was so sweet. He apologized for how he treated me and asked how I was doing. I told him I’m better and that he’s not to blame for any of this.
Billy: That’s good to hear. How much do you think he knows?
Chelsea: Just the bare bones, that I was depressed and spent a few days in the hospital. Nothing about…
Billy: Right. Okay.
Chelsea: I think it was, um… I think it was really positive for both of us.
Billy: Well, that’s good. Um, what do you got planned for the rest of the day?
Chelsea: Connor and I have dinner without adam, actually.
Billy: Alright. Well, if you’re still up for some pumpkin, uh, you can come by devon’s for dessert. Unless, of course, you’re on pumpkin overload, then you can come for the conversation and hang out, if you’d like.
Chelsea: Oh, thank you, billy. That’s a very nice offer.
Chelsea: I don’t know how the evening will unfold, but I will keep that in mind.
Nate: I really wish that would’ve gone differently. I wanted today to be extra special since I blew it last night with our dinner date.
Elena: Yeah, I’m not really concerned about that right now. After the way tucker just laid into you, how worried should I be?
Nate: Do not worry. I can handle tucker mccall.
Elena: He had no right speaking to you that way. This didn’t happen to him, and I don’t care that he’s devon’s father. He hasn’t been a real parent to him in ages. You and devon need to work this out on your own without tucker’s unwanted interference. Why are you smiling?
Nate: I was just thinking that I am so incredibly lucky to have you by my side.
Elena: [ Sighs ]
Devon: I appreciate you speaking up for me like that, but you don’t have to. I can always fight my own battles.
Tucker: I — I know that, and I’m sorry. I just couldn’t help myself.
Tucker: Oh, uh, be right back. Hey, you.
Ashley: Hi. Happy thanksgiving.
Tucker: Yeah, you, too.
Ashley: Have you seen abby?
Tucker: No, but I’m sure she’s back there somewhere. You okay? You seem a little worked up.
Ashley: [ Sighs ] I was forced to sit down and share a meal with diane today.
Tucker: [ Snickers ]
Ashley: Yeah, exactly. So I just needed to get some fresh air.
Tucker: Yeah, it went that well, eh?
Ashley: I can’t take it anymore. It’s time to bring that bitch down.
Traci: [ Chuckles ] Well, I am so sorry that ashley had to leave, but I know she wanted to spend time with abby and dominic.
Summer: It’s totally understandable.
Jack: Well, ashley is just going to miss out on a fabulous final toast.
Traci: [ Laughs ]
Kyle: [ Chuckling ] If dad does say so himself.
Jack: Seriously, I was just sitting here, thinking that john and dina sat at this very table for so many thanksgivings, and though I wish they were here with us now, I know they are smiling down on us because there is another generation at the table, their great grand children the sign of a growing family, the sign of an ongoing legacy. Everybody, grab a glass. One last toast.
Traci: [ Chuckles ]
Jack: [ Voice breaking ] To family. To love and loyalty. To kindness and compassion. And most of all, today, to gratitude that we can all be here together on this blessed thanksgiving day. And to many more family holidays and gatherings to come.
Jack: Happy thanksgiving.
Together: Happy thanksgiving.
Summer: Here, here.
Traci: Well said, jack.
Kyle: Cheers. Cheers.
