Daniel: Mind if I join you?
Phyllis: Oh, hey. Well, do you want to tell me what a miserable person I am, or listen to some of the ideas that I have, you know, or tell me I’m crazy? If I even have a job.
Daniel: I didn’t fire you, mom.
Phyllis: Right, well, that’s what it felt like. I mean, honestly, who talks to their mother like that?
Daniel: [ Sighs ] I was trying to offer very good advice. You need to let go of this unhealthy obsession with diane. I mean, it’s keeping you from focusing on this project, which I-I really, really want you to be a part of.
Phyllis: Okay, well, it didn’t sound like that was your point.
Daniel: Well, I’m sorry. I am. I love the idea of the two of us working together. I just need to know that you can let go of this vendetta. That’s it. So, I mean, your future with omega sphere is in your hands.
Abby: Hi. I just wanted to drop off dominic’s vitamins.
Devon: Oh. He’s not gonna like that you remembered. He hates these things.
Abby: Oh, that’s only because you don’t sing him the special vitamin song. Yeah. Which I will teach you after you tell me what’s on your mind. What’s up?
Devon: Oh, it’s nothing, really. It’s chancellor-winters stuff. Nothing you need to worry about.
Abby: Didn’t I just tell you that you were — you weren’t going to have to go through any of this alone? Come on. What’s up? Talk to me.
Devon: What’s the last thing I told you?
Abby: That you were trying to decide if you were going to stick with lily and jill taking chancellor-winters public.
Abby: And did you make a decision?
Devon: I did, yeah. Lily’s on her way over right now.
[ Cellphone pings ]
“Can you come over? I’ve got an idea.”
Tucker: That was fire. That’s what I remember and missed so much. Don’t tell me you don’T.
Ashley: That would be showing my hand.
Tucker: Ah, I think you already did.
Ashley: Mm, don’t be so sure.
Tucker: You see it, though, right? That together we’re stronger than whatever kept us apart.
Tucker: I’m sorry you had to hear that. You have to know that what he was accusing me of is just not true.
Ashley: Yeah, well, you know, I never trusted you anyway, so you couldn’t really sink any lower in my book.
Tucker: What are you talking about?
Ashley: Oh, well, all this — you know, all of this was just, um… you know, it was just an act so that I could get to the truth, you know? And because I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time…
Tucker: Okay —
Ashley: …Mission accomplished, you know? So…
Tucker: Hold on.
Ashley: Bye, tucker.
Tucker: Wait a minute, ashley.
[ Door slams ] Postmenopausal women with hr+ her2-
Tucker: You know, it’s a beautiful day, is it not?
Victoria: Yes, as a matter of fact, it is. You know, I think that it’s dinnertime in paris right now. It must be gorgeous, with the lights twinkling on the seine, lovers walking arm in arm down the champs-élysées. And I’m sure that ashley is glancing out at the eiffel tower, basking in the fact that she escaped you. You must be so crushed that your plan to win ashley back failed.
Tucker: Well, I must say, I’m very flattered you’ve been thinking of me so much.
Victoria: I do. I do think of you, tucker, as much as anyone thinks of an invasive species. Very difficult to eradicate, but once they’re gone, everybody’s so blissfully satisfied.
Tucker: Are you trying to tell me you think I should leave town?
Victoria: Ashley’s out of your reach. You’re out of reasons to stay.
Tucker: Well, why should i run away and deprive myself the pleasure of one-upping my enemies?
Victoria: I don’t think you’ve one-upped anyone this go-round.
Tucker: Give it time.
Daniel: Thank you. Mom, look, no one works harder than you, and no one is more creative. Hands down. I just need to know that you are fully focused on this job, and it’s not just an afterthought, or you’re coming up with new ways to go after diane.
Phyllis: You will get 97% of me.
Daniel: No. No 97%, mom. It needs to be all or nothing. Look, I want to work with you not just because of your insane gaming skills, but because of the way that they make you feel, you know? You light up like a little kid. And that’s the version of you that this platform needs.
Phyllis: I get it. I get it. Okay? You got me. I mean, this is more than just a business to you. I understand.
Daniel: Do you?
Phyllis: Mm-hmm. Yeah.
Daniel: Do you remember when I asked you to be a part of this venture? I sat there with you and dad. I told you how I felt everything in my life had just gone sideways. You know, how heather and lucy, they — they were finally sick and tired of my self-serving, toxic attitude? “Finding princess louisa” was born out of that chaos. And it’s the centerpiece. I mean, it is the jewel in the crown of the entire gaming platform. Finding your inner strength, using it to turn bad into good, dark into light. Are you with me here?
Phyllis: Yeah, I am. It means a lot to you. I get it.
Daniel: This project is me taking control of my life. It’s me taking what was left behind when my family left me and figuring out a way to move in a positive direction. And I want nothing more than for the two of us to go on this journey together. I’m — I’m serious. But, you know, if — if the wind doesn’t start blowing in our direction, the ship might be dead in the water.
Phyllis: Wait, wait, wait. What are you talking about? Is there a problem with chancellor-winters? Is everything okay there?
Lily: I’m really glad that you called. I really think that we can figure out — abby. Hi.
Lily: Sorry, I didn’t know that you were going to be here. Should we reschedule?
Devon: No, don’t have to at all. She just stopped by.
Abby: I was just dropping off dominic’s vitamins. Um, I’ll talk to you later?
Devon: Yeah, for sure, but you’re more than welcome to stay, too, if you want. She knows everything that’s been going on.
Abby: Well, I — none of the details. You know, I just know that this has taken a toll on devon.
Lily: Yeah. Well, I’m glad he has someone to talk to about it, ’cause this has been really hard on all of us. But I really think that we can find a solution that we all can live with.
Devon: Well, that’s just it. I think that, uh, it needs to be more than just something we can live with. I think that the solution should be something that we all feel good about. And your and jill’s offer to buy me out doesn’t really make me feel good.
Lily: Well, you haven’t heard numbers or specifics —
Devon: I know, I haven’t, and I don’t really need to, ’cause I’ve made up my mind. And my answer is no. I’m steve, I lost 138 pounds in nine months on golo
Daniel: Look, you know how things go at newly merged companies.
Phyllis: Yeah, everything’s in flux. I get it. You didn’t elaborate before, but you sort of insinuated that omega sphere could be in jeopardy at chancellor-winters.
Daniel: Well, lily told me she’s still interested in launching the platform.
Phyllis: But there’s no guarantee.
Daniel: I have a contract.
Phyllis: Well, it doesn’t matter. You don’t have the commitment from the two ceos. So the contract is not that important. Listen, we’re talking about a game that’s still in development, at a company that’s unclear. I mean, there are no guarantees here.
Daniel: Sometimes you just got to have faith.
Phyllis: Yeah. You know what’s better than faith? Cold, hard cash and job security. I mean, they could be thinking that this is too much of a risk. Hmm. I’m not going to let that happen to you.
Daniel: Well, unfortunately, it’s not in your hands.
Phyllis: Hmm. Really? Did you really say that to me? You underestimate me, my son. I fight for my children, and you know that. I also listen to them. I’m going to take what you said about diane to heart.
Phyllis: Mm-hmm. What, you don’t believe me? What, I have to wait a lifetime to change my mind? I could just change my mind right now. I need to move on. I agree with you. I need to forget about the past and put my attention on omega sphere and everything that you want that to be, like — like, um, princess louisa’s garden.
Daniel: I really hope you mean that.
Phyllis: I do mean that. I do. And I also want to help you out with this, because I don’t want this to just be in corporate limbo. Do you know what I mean?
Daniel: No, what are you saying?
Phyllis: Well, what I’m saying is, if chancellor-winters doesn’t get on it, we may have to get a backup plan.
Victoria: I think that time is probably the last thing that you need, given that you have other people doing your dirty work for you.
Tucker: What does that mean?
Victoria: I know about your connection with audra charles. She’s working for you behind the scenes. Stilettos on the ground, worming her way into chancellor-winters, reporting back to you, sharing insider secrets.
Tucker: I can’t imagine where you would hear such a thing.
Victoria: Well, you know, secrets have a way of not staying secret for very long.
Tucker: Aha, I’m going to remember that one. ‘Cause as an invasive species, I-I must learn to adapt.
Victoria: Mm, but you won’T. You will try to destroy everything in your path until you get what you want. Is newman next? Do we need to prepare ourselves for another embarrassing attempt at a coup?
Tucker: Oh, I’m just — I’m just one man, one lowly species and —
Billy: Tucker, tucker, what — what are you doing now?
Tucker: [ Chuckles ] See that, right on time, gallantly swooping in to protect the damsel?
Billy: No, no. Victoria can handle herself. But you can go ahead and take this as a warning. Don’t do anything else to mess with my family.
Tucker: Noted. But for the record, I’m just here for the coffee. The ambiance. So… nice turtleneck.
Billy: Not as nice as yours. Do I want to know what the hell that is all about?
Victoria: It always pays to know what’s going on with tucker mccall, especially because right now, he is a man searching for a battle.
Lily: Abby, would you mind giving us a minute alone?
Abby: Of course.
Lily: Thank you.
Devon: She doesn’t have to go anywhere, lily, ’cause there’s nothing else for us to discuss, since you don’t want to negotiate. And this is not a business decision, it’s a personal decision.
Lily: Jill and I came up with solutions that satisfy both the personal and business issues.
Devon: Who does it satisfy, aside from you and jill? Like, what do I get out of it?
Lily: What do you mean, what do you get out of it? You get the money and the name.
Devon: I have money. You already know that. And I can come up with a new name. That’s not what’s important to me. What matters is what the name represents, and that’s the actual company that neil and I built.
Lily: Devon, you can rebuild, and you can make it something that comes from you.
Devon: I have no interest in starting from scratch. I’m sorry. I want my company back in its entirety without any strings. It’s as simple as that.
Lily: [ Sighs ] I don’t see how you think that —
Devon: That’s the problem is that you don’t see anything else except from your perspective.
Lily: Wow. Hasn’t this come full circle? That’s exactly what nate said about you.
Devon: Uh, okay. And you know what he tried to do originally? He left the company. Which is what I’m trying to do, but you won’t let me. You will not let me leave and take my company that i poured my heart and soul into, that is already established and already has a foundation and respect from its competitors. You want me to walk away from all that and be fine with it? That’s kind of hurtful.
Lily: Devon, I’m trying to be fair.
Devon: I am trying to be fair, too. So let’s come up with something. How about — how about I pay you and jill whatever you guys ask for, within reason, to make up for whatever you think you’re gonna lose? ‘Cause that’s about the only option that I’m going to go for.
Lily: That’s the nuclear option.
Devon: If that’s how you see it.
Lily: Devon, jill made it very clear that buying you out was the only option. She is not going to break up the companies before we go public.
Devon: Okay. Then we go to court. Right before mike decided to say yes…
Lily: You really want to do that? You want to let lawyers sort this out?
Devon: Absolutely not, lily, but you and jill are trying to force me into this ipo move, even though I’ve expressed to you how I feel about it. So, I mean, what am I supposed to do?
Lily: Oh, I’m — I’m sorry. We forced you?
Devon: That’s what you’re doing.
Lily: You signed a contract. You agreed to go public, and now you want to back out, because it’s all about you. So I don’t know where you learned that you don’t have to keep your word, but it definitely was not from dad.
Devon: Okay, well, this has never been about me. It’s always been about honoring katherine and neil’s legacies.
Lily: Right, well, honoring their legacies is keeping the companies strong. And by backing out, all you’re doing is causing damage to both of them.
Devon: I disagree with that. I think by backing out, I’m keeping them out of the hands of people we don’t know and we don’t trust. And I don’t know how many times I have to explain that to you.
Lily: [ Scoffs ]
[ Sighs ] Okay. Nothing more to be said. So, I’m really sorry that it had to come to this.
Devon: I’m really sorry, too.
Lily: Yeah. Bye, abby.
[ Door opens ]
[ Door shuts ]
Victoria: I mean, what is he still doing in genoa city? He struck out already, both personally and professionally.
Billy: And I don’t see him, dom, and devon spending much family time together, either.
Victoria: Why doesn’t he just leave?
Billy: [ Sighs ] Because guys like that, they just don’t cut their losses and run, okay? But it’s not going to kill us to hope.
Victoria: He wants something. The question is what. I can’t afford to let him fall off my radar.
Billy: You feeling a little spread thin, having to spend so much energy on johnny and chelsea?
Victoria: I don’t know, maybe a little.
Billy: Well, pizza night was a big hit. Hmm? And that wouldn’t have happened without you.
Victoria: Well, I’m glad everybody had such a great time.
Billy: “Epic” was the word I heard most. And just to let you know, johnny is planning something fun for everybody to do together.
Victoria: Together? Like as a “family”?
Billy: Yeah, well —
Victoria: Billy, come on. I mean, it’s a — it’s a lot. I mean, I’m just getting used to this new dynamic. I think you would afford me the same compassion and care that you have given to chelsea. I mean, it’s hard on me, too.
Billy: I know that. I do. Look, you are his mother, okay? Every sneeze, cough, scraped knee, soccer game. And the fact that he is adjusting to this new landscape so well is a testament to you as a parent.
Victoria: I didn’t exactly do it alone.
Billy: Well, no. I mean, I did my part. But you deserve most of the credit for raising a strong, compassionate boy.
Victoria: This has been so difficult.
Billy: You know, we, uh — we try and tell kids it’s important to share, but it’s not easy to do. And you’re being asked to share a part of johnny’s heart with someone else.
Victoria: It’s really hard, billy. And I’m trying. I really am. I’m trying, but it’s — it’s hard.
Billy: Well, I mean, you could look at it this way. You are giving a gift to chelsea, johnny, and connor for that matter that is really incredible, one that they will not be able to repay.
Victoria: Johnny hasn’t been able to see how this is affecting me, has he?
Billy: No, no, no. No, you’ve done an amazing job trying to keep it from him. And I know what this is costing you, okay? I get it. But just so you know, I will always be there with you to do whatever we need to do for the kids. You’re the boss, okay? Well, co-boss.
Victoria: No, you were right the first time.
Victoria: Thank you.
Billy: Okay. I’ll see you later.
Billy: Be careful, okay?
Tucker: Hey, victoria.
Victoria: You really are a glutton for punishment, aren’t you?
Tucker: I just wanted to give you an answer. Uh, I haven’t decided who my next victim is going to be, but I just want to assure you that if it is newman, you’ll be the last to know. What fun would it be if you saw it coming, right? Hey… it’s me! Your dry skin!
“The young and the restless”
Chelsea: Come on in. I’m so glad you could make it.
Billy: Yeah, what’s going on? You feeling good?
Chelsea: I’m feeling inspired.
Billy: Okay, well, that’s a good thing. And what brought that on?
Chelsea: So, I was just listening to this podcast of this person who has experience with depression and a suicide attempt.
Billy: Okay. And how did that go for you?
Chelsea: It got me thinking. You know, the two of us, we have a lot of experience, not just with podcasts, but with mental health crises and being a part of someone’s support system. What if we created something like this?
Billy: Another podcast?
Chelsea: Well, I mean, we have such a great rapport. We know each other so well. We obviously bring out the best in each other, you know? I mean, what if we used our stories and our voices to help people feel less alone?
Billy: Yeah, um… honest opinion?
Billy: I get the impulse. I-I do. But are you sure you’re ready to open yourself up that way? You know, it’s only been a couple months since…
Chelsea: Well, it’s all a journey, right? I mean, I’d have to talk to my therapist, of course, and explain all this to her and make sure she approves, but —
Billy: Yeah, you’d have to do that.
Chelsea: The idea excites me. And what’s more important, what’s more life-affirming than that?
Billy: [ Sighs ] No, I agree. It would be.
Chelsea: So? Does that mean you’ll do it?
Devon: Hey, I’m sorry that I put you in the middle of all that. It just felt like lily was trying to tell me who I could have in my house, and I didn’t like that. So I apologize for doing that to you.
Abby: Well, uh, family dust-ups aren’t easy to be a part of or to witness.
Devon: Yeah. Do you think that I’m wrong in all this?
Abby: Look, I understand why you’re taking this stance. But are you really prepared to go into a legal battle with your sister and jill?
Devon: I mean, what else am I supposed to do?
Abby: I remember you told me that you were worried that this was going to get ugly if you couldn’t reach a compromise.
Devon: I know, yeah, and I am still worried. That’s the last thing that I want to happen, but I feel like I don’t have a choice.
Abby: I just — I can’t help but see the similarities between this and when you decided that you wanted to share custody of dominic. Look, I do not regret the outcome. I don’t, but you were willing to take chance and me to court so you could have equal access to dominic.
Devon: Right. But we got through all that, though.
Abby: Yeah, we did. But it was because chance and I, we decided that it was best for all of us to raise dominic together. And I just — I hope that you don’t think that every disagreement is going to have the same outcome, that your opponent is just going to suddenly realize that you’re right.
Devon: No, I’m not. Of course I’m not going to think that. But, abby, one of the most valuable lessons I ever learned from neil was that when you find something that you believe in and it’s important to you, you defend it, and you don’t back down. And this is something that is very important to me.
Abby: But there’s a lot more at stake than just the company that you built with your dad.
Devon: What are you saying?
Abby: I’m asking you if you’re prepared for what this will probably do to your relationship with lily.
Phyllis: Listen, daniel, we need to seize the moment. That’s what we need to do. I mean, we need a company that sees omega sphere for the moneymaking endeavor that it is. We need to let them make your vision a reality. You know what? Maybe we should take it to newman media. You know, nate hastings is there right now, and I’ve heard great things about him. Or forget it. Why are we thinking so small? Let’s go international. Japan, philippines, korea. Also, let’s not forget about the gamers in new zealand —
Daniel: Yeah, mom, I love that you’re so committed, but I think we’re getting a little bit ahead of ourselves.
Phyllis: Well, I don’t think so. This is something we need to do.
Daniel: [ Sighs ] I think we need to do exactly what we’ve been doing. We move ahead under the assumption that we’re going to be with chancellor-winters.
Phyllis: Well, I mean, but you’re the one who brought up that it’s a dire situation.
Daniel: I’m just talking worst-case scenarios. Look, I hope it doesn’t come to the point where we’ve got to take the project someplace else.
Phyllis: Right, plan for the best, prepare for the worst. I get it. I get it. Honestly, we have to. We have to think out of the box, all right? It’s just common sense. We have to look into other companies.
Daniel: I have a contract with chancellor-winters, and I have faith that lily’s going to do everything she can to keep this project on track. Lily. Hey. You want to join us?
Lily: Um — hi. Uh…
Daniel: What’s wrong?
Lily: No, I just — I-I had a meeting that didn’t go well, so…
Daniel: With devon? I’m sorry. I know it’s got to be stressful, and I really wish you weren’t dealing with all that.
Phyllis: Yeah, I’m sorry, too. Um, but all the issues that you’re having with your brother, does this have to do with the company? Um, because my son’s been working very, very hard at omega sphere and making it just amazing. I’d hate to think. Is it dead in the water at chancellor-winters? Dupixent helps you du more with less asthma.
Daniel: My mother’s candor is an expression of her passion for the project.
Phyllis: You don’t have to explain me to lily. She knows about my passion. I mean, she bought the grand phoenix from me. She understands. I mean, when I set my sights on a task, I really go for it.
Lily: Yeah, absolutely. I know that.
Phyllis: And I know you have to make tough calls. I understand that.
Daniel: I think that — I think that we should give lily a chance to explain. Please.
Lily: Yeah. No. Listen, the truth is, I mean, everything is still kind of up in the air right now.
Phyllis: Oh, okay. Well, I hope it’s nothing serious.
Lily: No, no, no. No, no. Just — it’s growing pains.
Lily: So, you know, I really hope that I can rely on your patience and understanding as we work everything out.
Phyllis: Oh. Well, sure. I mean, but you just want daniel to sort of wait and wonder?
Lily: Well, we signed a contract, so I’m not really sure what you’re expecting.
Daniel: Look, I’m — I’m cool with it. I can use the extra time to refine my designs.
Lily: Yeah, no, good, good, ’cause I really want to see this project come to fruition, if I can.
Phyllis: Oh, if you can. Okay. That’s a big if. I mean, he’s worked very hard on this project.
Daniel: Mm, yeah, I don’t think that’s the kind of help I need right now.
Phyllis: Well, I-I think lily needs to understand what goes into exactly what you do and the whole world that you’ve built. Maybe she doesn’t completely get it, you know?
Lily: No, look, I get it. I get it. You know, I really wish I could tell you more, though.
Phyllis: Oh, okay, I understand. You know, corporate secrets and all, right? I’m just advocating for my son.
Lily: I know. I know.
Phyllis: Yeah. Well, great. I have to go. Talk to you later.
Lily: All right. Bye. See ya.
Daniel: Bye, mom.
Lily: [ Sighs ]
Daniel: [ Sighs ] Well, I, um — I think you know what I’m about to say.
Lily: No, it’s fine. You don’t have to apologize. She’s your mom, you know? Of course she’s going to worry about you. Makes me miss my own parents. They were always in my corner.
Daniel: You want something to drink? I know I could use one, definitely something stronger than this coffee.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, I could definitely probably use some bourbon right now after my meeting with devon.
Daniel: Negotiations go south?
Lily: There were no negotiations. He wants what he wants, easy as that. He absolutely rejected our offer to buy him out, and jill is not going to let them take back hamilton-winters without a fight. So things are about to get nasty.
Billy: Look, if your therapist thinks it’s a good idea, then — then I’m going to support you.
Billy: Yeah, of course. But, uh, you know, there’s — there’s a few things to consider.
Chelsea: Of course. Of course. I mean, we’d have to hire a mental health professional to consult with and make sure we, you know, shape the language in the right way.
Billy: Yes, that would be a must.
Chelsea: Do you think we would need to use pseudonyms?
Billy: I don’t know, but that’s one of the things to consider, right? I mean, off the top of my head, I think being anonymous would be the right call. If not, we’re going to have to answer a lot of questions from all the parents at walnut grove. And we got to think about the boys.
Chelsea: Of course. Of course. The last thing I want is for johnny and connor to suffer any kind of bullying or unwanted attention.
Billy: Yeah, their safety is my top priority.
Chelsea: The thing is, if we use an alias, it’s like we’re reinforcing the stigma around mental illness. I want to teach the boys that shame shouldn’t be a part of this equation, certainly not when someone’s in trouble. Stigma is what stops people from getting help. Makes them feel they need to hide things. I mean, at least that’s how I felt.
Billy: That’s a good point, valid point. In fact, we should probably talk to dr. Malone about that. What? What are you looking at me like that for?
Chelsea: Be honest. Don’t just say what you think I want you to say. Tell me the truth. Do you really think it’s okay if we do this?
Phyllis: Hey, nate. Hi. This is phyllis summers. Um, you know, listen, I’m not going to ask how you are. I’ve heard glowing things about everything that’s going on with you since you took over at newman media. So, um, congratulations. Anyway, the reason that I’m calling is I have an idea. Actually, it’s my son’s idea. Um, I think you’ll find it fascinating. I’d like to come pitch to you, if, uh, that’s possible. Anyway… you don’t want to miss out on a chance of a lifetime, so give me a call back when you get this. Phyllis summers. All right. Don’t sneak up on people like that.
Tucker: So, it sounds like your son’s venture isn’t going so well at chancellor-winters.
Phyllis: That’s none of your business.
Tucker: Mm, that is true. But it could be. And it definitely should be. am so excited to dive in. I never know what I’m gonna get. Having a personal stylist makes me feel like a complete queen. So powerful. I feel sexy! The elite box by adore me. Get styled for only $10 at adoreme.Com. I’m managing my high blood pressure,
Billy: Look, I understand wanting to make lemonade out of the lemons you got, right? I mean, you’ve been through a pretty serious thing, and you want to try and help people that have gone through something similar.
Chelsea: Yeah, and I want to help their friends, their families.
Billy: And that need to help, it’s a good one.
Chelsea: I just feel like suicide and depression are so cloaked in shame, nobody wants to talk about it, so you’re just left in this lonely, desolate place. But if we share our stories and our voices and our hearts, especially coming from people who’ve been there…
Billy: Yeah, no, it’s a possibility. It deserves more exploration.
Chelsea: Yeah, and we’d have to be very careful with what we say. You know, if we’re going to do this, I want to make sure we do it right.
Billy: [ Sighs ] Look, I trust you, and you’re going to figure out what this entails and how you feel best about giving back. You’ll decide what’s right. But I will say, coming from me, it’d be fun to work on something together again.
Chelsea: I think it would, too. Very much.
Devon: I would like to think that one day, lily’s going to realize that this isn’t about her at all. It’s about honoring our father and preserving the work that we put into the company. That’s it.
Abby: Right, but when that doesn’t work out, you are more than welcome to spend any family holiday with me and dominic.
Devon: Do you really not think that lily’s going to get past this?
Abby: I don’t know. I mean, look at adam. He can’t get past any grievances that he has with his siblings.
Devon: Yeah, but, I mean, that’s — that’s adam. Lily’s not him. She’s a kind person, and she’s reasonable.
Abby: True. But what if she never forgives you for dismantling the merger? And what if you don’t win? Are you prepared for that?
Devon: How would i prepare for that? How do I prepare to lose everything that I’ve ever worked for in my life? I won’t do that.
Daniel: Look, I know that this can’t be easy for you. You know, going to war with a stranger is one thing, but when it’s your own brother…
Lily: Yeah, no, and he keeps talking about how he’s preserving our father’s legacy, when in reality, my dad would be horrified by this.
Daniel: You got a lot riding on this ipo. You got a ton of people counting on you to make the right decision… I don’t envy you one bit.
Lily: I’m really sorry that i have to keep you in limbo while we figure things out.
Daniel: I understand.
Lily: But thank you for being positive about all of this, ’cause I know you’re disappointed. And you have every right to be. I know how much you have riding on this.
Daniel: Well, we’ll figure it out, right?
Lily: We will.
[ Cellphone ringing ] Oh, uh, it’s jill. Jill. Hi. Um, yeah, I have a minute. Sorry. Sorry, yeah, what were you saying?
Tucker: So —
Phyllis: Okay, listen. Don’t eavesdrop on people’s conversations, please.
Tucker: What you were saying was so interesting. I couldn’t help myself. Phyllis, you are an astute businesswoman. You built a marvelous hotel, in which I am a resident.
Phyllis: Oh. Yeah. I sold it for a profit.
Tucker: I know you did. And I know you originally partnered with abby on it. And — and you guys aren’t exactly friends, so I know that you are able to separate your personal feelings from business matters when you want to.
Phyllis: Okay, what are you getting at?
Tucker: I want you to set aside your personal feelings for me and see the big picture here.
Phyllis: Would you like to paint that picture for me?
Tucker: If you want daniel’s project to come to fruition, don’t shop around. You’re right where you need to be. Right where the universe wants you. Right here, with me. Let’s talk.
