Transcript provided by Suzanne
Sally: I know this is last-minute, but I really need to see the doctor right away. Yeah. Yeah, I’ll be there. Yeah. Thank you. Thank you. I’ll see you soon.
[ Sighs ]
Adam: Is everything okay?
[ Mug thuds ]
Abby: Good morning.
Devon: Good morning, pretty lady.
Devon: I got you some coffee.
Abby: Thank you.
Devon: You’re very welcome. I had the, uh, nanny take dominic down to the kiddie gym so he can get his steps in for the day.
Abby: Oh, you should have woken me up. I love watching him play there. He loves that big green ball.
Devon: Yeah, he does.
Abby: [ Laughs ]
Devon: I know. It’s very cute. I like when he walks around on those little padded mats until he tumbles over.
Abby: Yeah. Well, we should go together sometime.
Devon: Yeah, we will. Just thought you’d like to sleep in this morning since you probably never get to.
Abby: Thank you.
Devon: Yeah. How you feeling?
Abby: About last night?
Abby: Um…good. Yeah, um… I mean, I guess I have to admit that I felt a little hint of guilt when I was walking down those stairs.
Devon: Well, we weren’t betraying anybody this time.
Abby: I know. It’s just, my divorce is so fresh, and…I mean, this is brand-new.
Abby: But when I look at you and I hear you talk about dominic… I know I’m in the right place. I feel happier and lighter than I have in a long time.
Devon: Well, I’m very happy to hear that ’cause I feel the exact same way.
Abby: [ Inhales deeply ]
Lily: Jill, I’m very excited. This is definitely the right move.
[ Chuckles ] Okay. Well, I will let devon and audra know, and I will chat with you later. Bye.
Audra: Sounds like good news.
Lily: Yep. Jill pulled the trigger. Moving forward with the ipo.
Audra: Excellent. We are back on track.
Lily: Yes. This is a huge step.
Audra: It certainly is. This is gonna be a huge success for all of us in unimaginable ways.
Lily: [ Chuckles ]
Kyle: I appreciate your dedication to the job, but there’s really no reason for you to be here. Maybe you should take a leave of absence until we’ve dealt with stark.
Diane: There is no place I’d rather be. I refuse to let him ruin every aspect of my amazing new life. Oh, good morning, summer.
Summer: Hi. We need to talk.
Ashley: Where are you going?
Jack: Upstairs. I need to get ready for work.
Ashley: Mm-hmm. You gonna ignore me like you did last night?
Jack: I didn’t ignore you.
Ashley: Yeah, you did. I wanted to talk to you about you and diane kissing, and you just kind of blew me off.
Jack: I didn’t have the time or the energy for it. The truth is, I don’t now. If you’ll excuse me…
Ashley: Please —
Jack: …I need to get to the office.
Ashley: Please don’t go anywhere until we have a chance to speak. Please?
Jack: It doesn’t make any sense, ash. I do not understand your continued vendetta against diana.
Ashley: And I don’t understand your complete denial of her history.
Jack: Yes, she has a past. We all do. But since she’s gotten back to genoa city, she has done nothing to you.
Ashley: That’s true, but only because she hasn’t been given the opportunity. If she found out she had leverage over me, she would not hesitate to use it.
Jack: That is absolutely absurd.
Ashley: Okay. Look, I am trying here, alright? I really am. And I’ve decided that i understand that you would want your son to reconnect with his mother.
Ashley: Okay. I get that. But you have let diane back into your life, jack. And from what I saw right here last night, she’s in far too deep.
Jack: I don’t know what you think you saw, but it’s really none of your business. Whether you like it or not, diane is part of this family.
Ashley: No, I don’t like it! And as far as I’m concerned, she’s not part of this family.
Jack: She is kyle’s mother. She is harrison’s grandmother.
Ashley: I know. I just can’t get the image out of my mind of your son as a little boy crying himself to sleep because he thought his mother was dead.
Jack: Diane has changed. Kyle has forgiven her. As far as I’m concerned, that makes her welcome in our home.
Ashley: I can’t forgive her. I can’t forgive her. Does that make me a bad person? I don’t think so. I don’T. Given the pain she’s caused this family, I think that viper deserves permanent exile from this house.
Jack: Wow. Isn’t it ironic that you, of all people, are opposed to a viper coming into this house?
Devon: I do need to get to the office soon, but what do you have going on today?
Abby: Well, I have to meet noah at his club.
Abby: But first I have to go home and change because I can’t be seen in the same outfit two days in a row.
Devon: That’s very true. You’ll have the whole town talking about it. It would be shameful.
Abby: Well, I don’t know if it would be shameful, but i think people would think it was very weird.
Devon: [ Chuckles ]
Abby: So, yes, that means i have to go home.
Devon: Is there a problem with going home?
Abby: It doesn’t feel like home. I mean, it’s the chancellor mansion. I’m no longer a chancellor. I feel like I’m an intruder.
Devon: Yeah. No, I get that. I do. There’s a lot of changes happening right now. It’s gonna take a minute for people to adjust to it. That’s all. I think as long as we focus on dominic, though, and make sure that this transition is as painless as possible for him, we’ll be alright.
Abby: Yeah. I couldn’t agree more.
Devon: Yeah, but you can take things slow. Just decide what’s best for you and dominic and take one step at a time. You don’t have to rush into any of this.
Sally: What do you mean, “is everything okay?”
Adam: I don’t know where the confusion lies. Those are three pretty simple words.
Sally: Were you listening in on my call? ‘Cause I thought we came to the understanding that you were gonna butt out of my business. So, how much did you overhear?
Adam: I didn’t hear a word. I saw you huddled over here. It seemed like you were hiding from someone. Were you?
Sally: No. I just wanted some privacy.
Adam: Here at crimson lights? Yeah, sure. I mean, no one ever comes here, except the entire town.
Sally: Okay, well, I just needed my tea. I needed to make a call. My tea had the priority. So, you know, why don’t you just mind your own business?
Adam: Okay. Just worried about you, sally. You look tense and a little tired.
Sally: [ Scoffs ] Well, I didn’t ask for your opinion of my appearance.
Adam: Are you sure that you don’t need a sympathetic ear? I mean, maybe you would feel better if you told me what was keeping you up at night. What?
Sally: Don’t you really want to ask who is keeping me up at night?
Adam: I didn’t mean anything by it. And I’m certainly not asking who you’re sleeping with.
Sally: I don’t believe you.
Adam: Look, you said that we’re done. So we’re done. I get it. We’re both moving on from our halcyon days at newman media. Although I will always remember them fondly.
Sally: [ Inhales deeply ]
[ Clears throat ] You want to know what is keeping me up at night? It’s the idea of launching my own business. Starting from scratch is anxiety-inducing.
Adam: Yeah. It is. But I can’t wait to see what you come up with next. I know I could use some help with some interior design, so i can’t wait for you and chloe to open your doors.
Sally: Thank you.
Adam: Mm-hmm. I know whatever you put your mind to, it will be a success.
Sally: What are you up to?
Adam: What do you mean?
Sally: Well, you’re just being so nice and laying it on a little thick, even though that’s not really like you. So, what do you after?
Adam: [ Sighs ] Nothing. I’m sorry that I interrupted your morning, okay? I’ll be on my way.
Sally: [ Sighs ] Adam. Adam, wait. Look, I’m sorry, okay? I forget sometimes that you can be nice just to be nice.
Adam: [ Sighs ] Well, I have given you a lot of reasons to doubt my intentions.
Sally: Yeah. Well, we’ve been very civil lately, and I don’t want to lose that connection just because I’m in a mood this morning.
Adam: Well, you’re entitled to be in a mood whenever you want.
Sally: Yes, I know, but i shouldn’t take it out on you when you haven’t done anything wrong. I just have a lot on my plate right now. You know? Maybe a little too much.
Daniel: [ Sighs ]
[ Cellphone vibrating ]
[ Cellphone thuds ]
[ Sniffs, clears throat ]
Daniel: God, don’t you look terrific.
Abby: Oh, my gosh! Thank you so much. Ah! It’s so good to see you. I heard you were back in town.
Daniel: Yeah. Yeah, I’m glad we ran into each other.
Abby: Yeah. Um, well, I’m supposed to meet noah, but I don’t see him, so maybe we could catch up if you’re not too busy?
Daniel: No. Yeah. No, not at all. And at this moment, I would actually welcome the intrusion. So, please have a seat.
Abby: So, I heard you’re working for chancellor-winters. How great is that?
Daniel: Yeah. Uh, I thought it was pretty impressive. But I guess it’s just a job, right?
Abby: Come on. It’s a huge responsibility. And you’re so creative. You’re gonna be terrific.
Daniel: Thank you. I am looking forward to just jumping into the deep end.
Abby: So, where are you saying?
Daniel: Downstairs, at the hotel.
Abby: You, heather, and lucy in a hotel indefinitely?
Daniel: Well, they aren’t with me right now.
Abby: Oh. When are they coming?
Daniel: You know, I can’t really answer that right now.
Lily: Okay, we definitely have to time this announcement properly because if we do it too early, then we risk losing momentum with the investors, or I think that we can open ourselves up to price manipulations.
Audra: Yeah, but too late, and we might not be able to generate any momentum at all.
Audra: I’ll run the numbers and find the optimal day to make the announcement.
Lily: I have no doubt that you will.
[ Laughs ]
Devon: Hey, hey. What do you guys seem excited about?
Lily: Well, jill is ready to move forward with the ipo. It’s happening.
[ Laughs ]
Devon: It’s happening. It’s happening without me having a say?
Lily: What are you talking about? You knew about this plan all along.
Devon: I knew about your plan. It’s not my plan.
[ Cellphone chimes ] What’s that?
Audra: Oh, it’s just, um, a text. Sorry. I will mute it. I’m actually gonna step outside and give you two the room.
Lily: Devon, you knew this ipo was happening all along. I mean, this is not some secret meeting that jill and I had. We had a call scheduled, and we chatted about it and decided this is what’s best for the company.
Devon: Yeah, but you made that decision without me.
Lily: No one is trying to exclude you. So, look, if you want, call jill and ask her some questions. But I’m sorry. I’ve heard your argument about keeping the company private, and I don’t agree. I don’t understand why you want to limit the growth and success of chancellor-winters.
Kyle: Sorry we’re late. I wanted to take my mother to breakfast someplace off the beaten path where we wouldn’t have to worry about stark seeing us before I came in, and she insisted on coming into the office, too.
Diane: What can I say? I love my job.
Kyle: So, uh, what did you want to talk about?
Summer: You know what? It was, uh, nothing urgent. Mariah just wanted me to remind you about that, uh, personal time that she’s taking off.
Kyle: Oh, right. Uh, she and tessa are traveling to meet a potential birth mother.
Diane: Ah, that is so wonderful. They must be so excited. I’m sure they are going to make amazing mothers.
Summer: You barely even know them.
Diane: But we work together. And I saw how special their bond was at tessa’s photo shoot.
Summer: I have to pull some files from jack’s office. Excuse me.
[ Cellphone vibrating ]
Diane: Hello, jeremy. Why give your family just any eggs
Diane: Why don’t I make the arrangements, and then I’ll text you the time and place? Okay. See you soon.
Kyle: What did he want?
Diane: He wants to meet tonight.
Kyle: So, is this how it’s gonna be? You’re at his beck and call like a servant?
Diane: Kyle, we discussed this. I’m the one who’s working him. This is all part of my plan.
Kyle: [ Sighs ] I need to tell dad.
Diane: No, no, no. I appreciate your concern, but, please, I don’t want jack following me like he did last time. I can do this on my own.
Abby: I heard you were in town, and I just assumed that heather and lucy were with you. I’m — I’m sorry.
Daniel: There’s no need for you to apologize. It’s just uncertain when they’ll get here.
Abby: Yeah, I’m sure they’re busy with work and school. But, hey, in the meantime, if you want to meet the happiest baby in the world, I would love to introduce you to dominic.
Daniel: Well, I’d love to meet him. I miss that age, you know? It goes by too quickly.
Abby: It’s the best. You know, he’s not even 2 yet, and I find myself feeling nostalgic about things he did last year. But, um, maybe it’s more than just dominic. I don’t know if you heard, but, um, chance and I — we split up.
Daniel: Oh. No. I’m sorry.
Abby: Yeah, we tried to make it work, but I guess it was just inevitable. So now I am trying to just appreciate the time that we had together and just move forward.
Daniel: Speaking of moving forward, um, I actually have to meet with lily.
Daniel: I’m really glad we ran into each other. You know, we’re gonna have to get together soon, catch up a little bit more. And I’d love to meet dominic. Um…you have an amazing day.
Abby: You too. Bye.
[ Sighs ]
Ashley: What do you have to say, jack? Just spit it out.
Jack: Oh, I think you know. I didn’t imagine you and tucker kissing outside the front door
Ashley: Oh, so what? You have no idea what’s going on with tucker and me.
Jack: And you have no idea what’s going on with diane because you’ve made no effort to understand her. You and your allies have been small and petty and mean, and your hatred for her has no foundation.
Ashley: I disagree. If there’s anything in the known universe that has a foundation, it’s my hatred for diane. Sorry.
Jack: No, you hate the old diane. She has changed.
Jack: I have been trying to tell you this for months.
Ashley: Okay, just settle down, alright? When has diane ever been overtly evil? Not often, right? I mean, she’s subtle. She’s charming. She can act like she’s your best friend and then turn around and kick your legs out from under you. She’s sneaky and manipulative, and she hasn’t changed, jack. For whatever reason, you have bought this “poor, helpless me” routine of hers. And the one thing you know — diane has never been and will never be helpless.
Audra: What do you want?
Tucker: I want to know when or if this chancellor-winters ipo is actually gonna happen. Snails move faster than this public offering.
Audra: Don’t blame me for that.
Tucker: Who else is responsible? I literally gave you one job.
Audra: So let me do it. Okay? I was in the middle of a meeting about it when you texted me, demanding I come see you right away.
Tucker: Alright. Then how’s it going?
Audra: Jill and lily — you know, they want to get the ball rolling, but your son, devon, seems determined to fight them on it.
Tucker: Okay, so, you —
[ Sighs ] Then you convince him that it’s a good idea.
Audra: I’m not sure I can. You know, everything that happened with nate has made him paranoid, and you and I both know he’s right.
Tucker: No, he’s not! What I am doing is in his best interest.
Audra: Okay, then —
Tucker: No, audra. I am going to work side by side with my son. That’s all I want. Do you understand that?
Audra: Then maybe you take his frame of mind into account and come up with another way to make that happen. In the meantime, I’m gonna get back to that office, you know, before devon and lily get suspicious about why their ipo expert decided to disappear in the middle of an important conversation!
[ Door slams ]
Devon: Lily, you know that I’ve never supported this ipo move — because we’d be giving up too much autonomy. The whole reason that we merged our companies together is so we can run a corporation as a family. And if we go public, yeah, we’re gonna be making more money, but we’re not gonna be able to be making the decisions that matter for our company. And that’s not worth it to me.
Lily: Devon, if we sell stock, we could double or triple our valuation.
Devon: The company is doing fine. We’re making money, okay? That’s not the most important thing. And, yes, I know nate is gone, but what he almost put us through is exactly the kind of thing that can happen to companies when they go public. So, what happened to us taking time and waiting to make this decision?
Lily: Because sooner is better, and jill and I want to move forward with this. And her vote is equal to both of ours. And I agree with her. So, I’m sorry, but she and i have the majority.
Devon: Is that right? Well, then why even ask my opinion in the first place? Hell.
Lily: Look, if you can provide some legitimate reason as to why you want to stop this, then we will listen. But right now, all you have is some general vague concern. And I’m sorry, but it’s not enough.
Devon: It’s not vague. It’s not vague. And I’m never gonna support this move. It’s as simple as that.
Lily: Nothing about this is simple, okay? There are a lot of moving parts, and I really hope that I will have your support because i don’t have nate and I don’t have billy. But if I have to walk this path alone, then I will.
Devon: Cool. Then I guess I will be spending my time finding a legitimate reason to stop you from making this move.
Lily: Okay, well, you are welcome to it. But I actually have a lot of work I have to get done.
[ Sighs ]
[ Pen clatters ]
Adam: Come on. I’m a good listener. You can tell me anything, whatever’s on your mind.
Sally: I would love to. But I’m just not sure.
Adam: What does that mean? What exactly aren’t you sure about?
Sally: Anything. You know, at this moment, I’m — I’m just not sure about anything. It just always seems like things are so difficult for me. And, yeah, maybe that’s my own fault and I create my own problems, but — I don’t know — once, just once I would love for things to be cut and dried. You know, “here’s a problem? “Oh, yeah. There’s an easy solution.”
Adam: Well, I can’t pretend to know what you’re talking about, but I think I’ve seen you in enough difficult situations to know that you’ll figure it out. You know? I’m sorry that you’re feeling overwhelmed. You really do deserve a break. But by the same token, you can handle anything.
Sally: Why are you being so nice to me?
Adam: I think you know. When a cold comes on strong,
“The young and the restless”
will continue. Meet febreze’s miracle spray:
Sally: I have no idea why you’re being so nice to me. What is your angle?
Adam: Sally, there’s no angle.
Sally: Okay, then what did you mean by “you should know”? What is it that I’m supposed to know?
Adam: [ Sighs ] All I meant was you will always be very special to me. We have a connection.
Sally: That’s it? For real?
Adam: Yes. What more could there be? And I meant what I said by having a sympathetic ear. It wasn’t that long ago that you and I — we could discuss anything. So, if you ever need anyone to talk to you, just give me a call.
Sally: Okay. Yeah, I’ll think about that. Oh, I — I have to go to this appointment. Adam. Thank you.
Kyle: I know this is part of your plan, but I don’t like the idea of you going on a date with a criminal like stark.
Diane: It’s not a date.
Kyle: Okay, well, whatever you want to call this meeting. Dad and I should be close by, just in case. You know, in fact, at the risk of sounding overprotective, dad and I should be dealing with this, not you.
Diane: [ Sighs ] Look, I can take care of myself. I am as tough and wily as people have accused me of being. I just don’t have to use those skills as much these days, but i haven’t lost my touch. Believe me, I’ve got this under control.
Devon: Hey, man. Is abby here yet? No? Thank you.
Tucker: Hey. Devon.
Tucker: How are you?
Devon: Alright. How you doing, man?
Tucker: Were you taking your phone out to call me to invite me to breakfast?
Devon: [ Chuckling ] Yeah. Yes, I was. How’d you guess? Beat me to it.
Tucker: You okay? You seem like you’re carrying some stress.
Devon: Oh, yeah? Well, that’s, uh — that’s a good eye you got. I’m just, uh, dealing with this ipo thing at work. It’s got me reconsidering the chancellor-winters merger altogether. That’s all.
Tucker: Oh. Well, sit down. Sit down.
Tucker: So, what’s going on? What’s the problem?
Devon: Uh… I don’t really want to get into it too deep with you, but, um, I just — I lost some autonomy in the merger, and I’m set to lose even more the way things are headed.
Devon: I’ll be lucky to have a say my own company.
Tucker: Yeah. I know that feeling. ‘Cause you want to grow the company, but you have to give up some control to do it, right?
Tucker: Yeah. Which doesn’t seem quite fair in this instance because you and neil built it.
Devon: Yeah. Yeah. That’s exactly how I feel.
Tucker: Well, if it’s such a concern for you, maybe you should consider taking hamilton-winters back from chancellor and run the business on your own again. I know somebody who could help you. Okay everyone, our mission is complete balanced nutrition.
Devon: Yeah, no, I said this before. I don’t want you getting involved with my business, tucker.
Tucker: No, no, no, no, no. Please don’t misinterpret me. I’m not trying to stick my nose where it doesn’t belong. You certainly have the resources to reacquire the company on your own. Uh, in fact, all you’d —
[ Sighs, chuckles ] Listen to me. I’m sticking my nose where it doesn’t belong. Sorry. I just want to help.
Devon: I know you do. I appreciate you wanting to help, but I’m not looking for advice on this.
Tucker: Understood. It’s just that I haven’t always been there for you, and since this is my area of expertise, i thought the least I could do is counsel you. But, you know, you’re an astute businessman in your own right. You don’t need to listen to other people. At the same time [Chuckles] This is the issue we’re discussing currently. You want autonomy and you want to be in control of your destiny. You should not be constricted by what other people want. At the same time, you need to realize it’s okay to go after what you want. And I just might be the guy to help you do that.
Abby: [ Sighs ]
[ Sighs ]
Lily: Daniel. Hi.
Daniel: Hey. How are you doing? Um, I haven’t talked to you since new year’S.
Lily: Uh, I’m fine. Just, you know, been busy. Hoping 2023 will be a good year. How are you feeling?
Daniel: I’m great.
Lily: Are you sure?
Daniel: Yeah. I mean, you know, I couldn’t be better.
[ Chuckles ]
Lily: Okay. Come on. I saw your face when I first walked in, and then when you saw me, you kind of threw this big smile on.
Daniel: Maybe I was waiting for you to arrive to cheer me up.
Lily: Okay. What’s going on? What is it? Is it the press release?
Daniel: No. God, no. The press release is fantastic, but…
Lily: But what?
Daniel: It’s not important. You know, you have bigger concerns.
Lily: Oh, come on. Really? Not important? After everything that we’ve been through together, I mean, if you can’t trust me to tell me what’s going on, then who can you trust?
Daniel: I do trust you. I do. I just don’t want you to judge me.
Lily: Daniel, I would never do that.
Daniel: [ Inhales sharply ] Alright. Alright. Back in savannah, I made some mistakes. I didn’t respect heather as a strong woman who was capable of making her own decisions. Some of that trickled down to lucy, too. You can say there was a lot of jealousy and insecurity on my part.
Lily: That doesn’t sound like you.
Daniel: Well, I was going through a rough patch career-wise, and — [ Chuckles ] I mean, saying that I handled it badly is an understatement. And I — I pushed them away. And I’m genuinely ashamed about it. And here I am — I’m running around trying to hide it from everyone all the time while I’m just trying to get back on solid ground. But now you and devon — you’ve put me there. I mean, you have no idea how good it feels to be working on something worthwhile and lucrative. And — and it’s my hope that maybe this will show the two women in my life that I’m not a lost cause.
Jack: You know what? You believe what you want to believe.
Ashley: Well, I believe that you have brought diane’s “poor me” act.
Jack: It is not “poor me.” I have seen the fear in her eyes. She is genuinely afraid of what jeremy stark will do to her. I know you find that silly. I have sat with this man. I concur with her. He’s a dangerous man. So I have decided, yes, to protect my son’s mother, to protect my family.
Ashley: Okay, so, years ago, diane chose to double-cross a dangerous criminal, and now our family is in danger. Are you hearing this? And diane is now using the situation to embed herself into our family and into our home and into your bed. And maybe that’s the whole point of this.
Jack: If you are so indignant about who I entertain in my home, maybe you should stay elsewhere.
Ashley: [ Sighs ] Listen, I’m done settling. Because this is my secret.
Ashley: So, this is what it’s come to, huh? I’m being forced from the family home? I’m not giving an inch to diane. I belong here as much as you do. It’s my house, too.
Jack: No one’s throwing you out of the house. I’m just saying if diane’s presence here is so abhorrent —
Ashley: I am not being forced out because of your sick fixation on diane, jack. And you know what else? You might be ceo, but jabot belongs to me, too! And you wanted her to work there? I never got a vote. I’m laying it out there. Diane jenkins will never, ever be welcome in our home or in that company! Do you understand me?! Not ever.
Kyle: Hey. What’s wrong?
Summer: What do you mean?
Kyle: Well, it was pretty clear that when you said you wanted to talk, it wasn’t about mariah’s personal time. Given how frosty you were with my mom, I assumed it was about her.
Summer: It was.
Kyle: Well, we should discuss whatever it is that’s troubling you.
Summer: I agree.
[ Sighs ] Look, things are getting really tense around here. And with stark still out there as a constant threat, I’m scared. I need a break from genoa city.
Kyle: What are you — what are you talking about?
Summer: There’s a textile show in paris, and I think i should go.
Kyle: Yeah, th-that might be a good idea.
Summer: I want to take harrison with me.
Sally: [ Sighing ]
[ Sighs heavily ] What am I gonna do now?
Lily: Daniel, no one thinks that you’re a lost cause.
Daniel: Hmm. You didn’t see the look on heather and lucy’s faces when they left for europe. It’s gonna take a long time to fix my family life.
Lily: Well, you know what? I mean, there is nothing in your contract that says that you have to be in genoa city. You can work from anywhere. So, if you want, go back to savannah or join them in portugal. I mean, I think, you know, keeping your family together has to be your top priority.
Daniel: Yeah. No, of course. I mean, it’s — it’s my goal, but I feel like if I split my focus, I’m gonna wind up doing a half-assed job on both fronts. I got to do this the right way, one step at a time. Otherwise, I might never get any aspect of my life back on track.
Lily: Daniel, I’m so sorry.
Daniel: Mnh-mnh. No. No. Lily, please do not look at me like that.
Lily: [ Sighs ]
Daniel: It seems like everyone these days is looking at me that way, and, I mean, I’m getting better. I’m gonna be okay.
Lily: Okay. Just know that I’m here if you need anything, alright?
Daniel: I really appreciate it.
Daniel: You have somewhere you need to be?
Lily: Um, yeah. I, uh — I have an appointment, so I have to go. Otherwise, I would chat all morning.
Daniel: You seem a little nervous. You expecting bad news or something? I mean, should I be the one who’s worried about you?
Lily: No, no, no. I’m fine, just, um, a little anxious, uh… but listen — I have enormous faith in you, okay? Otherwise, we would have never brought you on. And know that you are not a lost cause, okay? Bye.
[ Cellphone pings ]
Devon: Yeah, I’m definitely gonna take some time and think about what you said. I’d still like to try and figure this all out on my own, though.
Tucker: Sure. That’s prudent.
Devon: You definitely do have a point. And I know you know what you’re talking about, so…
Tucker: Consider it.
Devon: I will. I will. I’m glad I, uh, ran into you.
Tucker: Yeah, me too, son.
Devon: Appreciate the insight.
Tucker: Oh, of course. Anytime.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Devon: That’s a unique chime.
Tucker: Yeah, I know. It came with the phone.
