[ Footsteps approaching ]
Kyle: Do you have time to talk?
Jack: It’s about Marchetti?
Kyle: No. Personal stuff. Um…I want to know what’s going on with you and mom.
Jack: Yeah. Okay. Um, what is it you’re curious about?
Kyle: How serious the two of you are. I know things are going well right now.
Jack: Yes, they are.
Kyle: Do you really think that will last? Because I know you’ve been able to get past the lies and mistakes so far, but I think your relationship may be what finally blows up this family.
Diane: Summer. Do you have a minute?
Summer: Um, I just came home to check on Harrison really quick, and then I was running back to the office. Is — is it something Marchetti-related or…?
Devon: Oh, no, no, no. I would save that for the office. This is more personal.
Summer: [ Sighs ] Okay. What’s up?
Diane: Well, I get the sense that you’re less than thrilled that Jack and I are romantically involved again.
Summer: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. I don’t want to see Jack get hurt. And I really don’t want to see Kyle caught in the middle of the fallout when things go wrong, which I’m pretty certain that they will go wrong.
Chloe: You know, I just can’t believe we flew all the way to L.A. — I left Kevin with the kids — just to be rejected so harshly.
Sally: Yeah, I mean, what a colossal waste of time.
Chloe: Well, I’m not so worried about the time. It’s more about the mess I had to deal with when I got home.
Sally: I thought Kevin was pretty tidy around the house.
Chloe: [ Sighs ] Yeah, he is. But men are just very simple creatures. They can focus on the house and they can focus on the kids, but they cannot do both. You will learn this soon enough.
Sally: Okay. Well, that seems like a massive generalization. Maybe Nick will be different. I have to text him that I’m back.
Chloe: The point is, we could have been rejected just as easily here in genoa city.
Sally: I know. And as I said before, I-I’m really sorry. I knew that this venture would be a difficult climb, but i don’t understand why Jill would just slam the door in our face without actually hearing our pitch.
Chloe: You have no idea?
Sally: I think she said that she had a change of mind? I got the sense that maybe she learned something unpleasant about my history. But that also doesn’t make sense because the first time i met Jill, she seemed to admire the fact that I left my past behind and changed my life.
Chloe: So, she admired you, and then she wouldn’t let us in the door to meet with her. What the hell happened?
Victor: Business meetings get canceled all the time, son.
Nick: [ Sighs ] Why won’t you just give me a straight answer? Did you convince Jill to call off that meeting with sally and Chloe?
Victor: I talked to Jill, yeah.
Nick: About sally?
Victor: I gave her an honest assessment of sally’s qualifications.
Nick: [ Exhales heavily ] I knew it. You killed that meeting. It’s a meeting that meant nothing to you but everything to them. It’s not enough that sally was fired from Newman Media by Victoria for no good reason. Now you’re sabotaging opportunities for her?
Victor: Jill Abbott is a very clever businesswoman. She’s not gonna get involved with someone that’s not worth the effort. Whatever happened to sally spectra is her own doing.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ]
Tucker: Oh, no. Have the tables finally turned? Has Diane driven you out of town?
Phyllis: You’re an ass.
Tucker: Where are you going?
Phyllis: I’m trying to catch a flight.
Tucker: Oh, yeah?
Tucker: Business or personal trip?
Phyllis: Uh, a little bit of both. And unlike you, I will be successful at both. [ Chuckles ]
Lily: Yep, that’s right, Jill. Look, it’s not gonna be easy, but we’ll come up with a plan. Okay. I’ll talk to you soon. Bye.
Daniel: Sounded important.
Lily: Uh, yeah. If I’m talking to Jill, then it probably is. She doesn’t really chitchat.
Daniel: Hmm. So, no resolution yet on Devon taking Hamilton-winters back from chancellor?
Lily: No. We made him an offer. He declined and won’t budge. And neither will Jill.
Daniel: Which means you’re caught in the middle.
Lily: Yeah, exactly. And I have to figure out a way to make chancellor functioning and profitable in the meantime.
Daniel: That’s unfortunate. It must be incredibly difficult.
Lily: I feel like what you really want to ask me is, is there a future for your project?
Nick: Why are you trying to destroy sally?
Victor: Son, to be frank with you, I don’t give a damn about sally spectra, okay? So stop this nonsense. I know the kind of woman she is. She has ruined your brother. She’s gonna ruin you.
Nick: She did no such thing.
Victor: What the hell is he doing now? He’s sitting at jabot doing nothing, selling lipstick and perfume, only because he was infatuated with her! She has dragged him down!
Nick: No, it’s the other way around.
Nick: He dragged her down. Sally’s the one with the work ethic and the ambition who makes the most of every opportunity.
Victor: Yeah, with the ambition. You’re right.
Nick: Adam has been handed everything over and over again, dad, and he blows them all up, whether it’s career or romance. He fails at everything because of his attitude. And for you to assume I’m gonna end up like Adam for any reason at all is beyond insulting.
Sally: I just can’t believe my past would be an obstacle to starting this company. I’m really sorry. You should not be punished for the things that I’ve done.
Chloe: It’s okay. My own sordid past has reared its ugly head once in a while. And Jill is not the only game in town. We just need to find funding somewhere. What about Nick’s offer to loan us the money?
Sally: No. No, absolutely not. My situation with him is already uncomfortable enough now that he knows that I’m pregnant, okay? So let’s not add the money issue to the situation. I’m already worried that he’s gonna feel obligated to make things more serious than he might have wanted.
Chloe: But I thought he cleared all that up.
Sally: Nick has been sweet and supportive, but it’s not like we, you know, spoke about anything long term. You know, there’s a lot of time between now and the miracle of childbirth. You know, anything could happen. I mean, Nick could decide to up and bail on us altogether.
Chloe: Nick would never do that. He is such a good guy.
Sally: Yeah. He’s the best. I’m just not feeling very secure right now. What Nick and I have is really great. He’s sexy and he’s sweet and he’s honest. But like I said, things could change.
Chloe: [ Sighs ] The Adam possibility.
Adam: What is the Adam possibility?
Phyllis: And can you please, please tell them to just leave all my mail and the package that I’m expecting back here until i get back from Portugal, please?
Tucker: Portugal? Isn’t that where Daniel’s partner and daughter are living now? That’s interesting.
Phyllis: Well, that’s interesting to me, of course. It shouldn’t be interesting to you.
Tucker: Is Daniel going with you?
Phyllis: What I do and what my son does — it’s none of your business. By the way, I told my son to keep away from you.
Tucker: So, he’s sticking around in town?
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] It’s not your concern.
Tucker: Yeah. He’s sticking around, isn’t he? Gonna work on his gaming platform. Yeah, he’s got a bold vision. When I talked to him, I was really impressed with how creative he is, and yet he’s also savvy, focused. It’s a nice combination.
Phyllis: Leave my son alone.
Tucker: Come on. He’s got the hottest project in town. It would be, uh — [ Chuckles ] It would be business malpractice if I didn’t try to get a piece of it.
Phyllis: Um, you seem desperate, Tucker.
Tucker: Is that so?
Phyllis: Yeah, because you’re a billionaire. You own a huge conglomerate. You’re here in this sleepy town trying to poach a gaming platform. I mean, what is that? You’re trying to take it out from under chancellor-winters. That’s your son’s company. What are you doing? You know, I’ll tell you. It seems like you haven’t had a win in a while.
Phyllis: And you’re just kind of jonesing for one. Just saying.
Tucker: Yeah. Well, Phyllis, you have a nice trip. [ Chuckles ]
Phyllis: Damn it.
Daniel: You’re right. I am concerned about the future of omega sphere. I came to you with a business venture, and you signed on. But I know that that was in part because of our friendship. And, yes, this project means the world to me and I want nothing more than to move forward with it, but I’m also worried about what all this turmoil at your company is doing to you. Are you okay?
Lily: Yeah. I’m fine. I just — I have a lot going on right now.
Daniel: Well, if anyone can handle that, it’s you.
Lily: [ Sighs ] Thank you. I just — I — I feel very overwhelmed, you know, ’cause I want to do right by you. I want to do right by Jill, by the company. But it’s like Devon has thrown everything into chaos. I mean, he’s ready to enter a lawsuit with chancellor. And so we have to shelve the IPO again, you know? And I don’t have Billy. I don’t have Nate or Audra. So I just feel like I’m entering this hurricane by myself.
Daniel: Well, you’re not totally alone.
Lily: [ Sighs ] Yeah, I don’t think you can really help me with this one.
Daniel: I meant Jill. And you must have some good, smart people at the company that you can rely on.
Lily: Yeah, no, of — of course I do. I just have to be realistic about what could happen because I think being in denial could be a recipe for disaster.
Jack: Look, I appreciate your concerns. I want to alleviate them. What is it that has you worried about my relationship with your mother?
Kyle: All of it.
Jack: Can you be more specific?
Kyle: Your past. Look, you’ve tried this before. It has always blown up. I mean, she faked her own death, which I have forgiven her for, but it’s —
Jack: You’re worried that she’s going to revert to old patterns.
[ Sighs ] I love her. I love seeing her with Harrison. But she is who she is. She doesn’t play by the rules. Look at this situation with stark.
Jack: Wait — in fairness, most of that plan was my idea. No, you can’t judge her for that. Look, I don’t think that what she did to get out from under stark’s thumb is indicative of any moral failing.
Kyle: There were already shady things happening.
Jack: Yes, because there were difficult circumstances. Kyle, I would do the same thing again in a heartbeat. It worked. Look, I will take full responsibility. The last thing I want is for my decisions to come between you and your mother.
Kyle: You really care about her, don’t you?
Jack: I really do.
Kyle: After all this time, how do you know the two of you will be a good fit now?
Jack: We are older. We are wiser. We have both mellowed. We are each more accepting of the other’s faults.
Kyle: You sure the two of you aren’t in denial?
Jack: Our eyes are wide open.
Kyle: What if she hurts you? What if you hurt her? What if she runs away and leaves us again? There will be no coming back from that, not for me.
Diane: You’re bound to have doubts. And who knows? Maybe Jack and I won’t last. But I can tell you that I have deep affection for him.
Summer: That I believe.
Diane: Yeah, he’s thoughtful and considerate. He — he makes me happy. And I feel stronger when I’m with Jack, if that makes any sense.
Summer: Sure. I get the same feeling from Kyle.
Diane: Well, I’m going to do whatever I can to make things work. And, really, the only thing i see getting in our way is your mother.
Summer: I really don’t think you should worry about her.
Diane: [ Chuckles ] Really? Phyllis has such deep resentment and anger towards me. She’s determined to cause me not just trouble, but pain. And, frankly, it’s a little disturbing. And, you know, where does that leave Jack?
Summer: What do you mean?
Diane: Well, she claims that she cares about him, but she clearly doesn’t respect his choices.
Summer: [ Laughs ] She might not agree with his choices, but I — I don’t think it’s about respect. And honestly, Diane, if you think that my mom is the only thing that could disrupt your happiness, you’re either naive or you’re just as steeped in those old hatreds as you claim she is.
Diane: I’m not naive.
Summer: So, you realize that you could really hurt Jack and Kyle and Harrison with all of this. And they care about you. They trust you. And you’re looking for a scapegoat for when things go wrong.
Diane: Not at all.
Summer: So then why would you just randomly bring up my mom?
Diane: There’s nothing random about it. But you know what? Fair enough. I have survived Phyllis so far, and I will continue to do so. I just hope she puts her energy elsewhere because I have had more than enough of her attention, and, sadly, nothing good ever comes from it.
Nick: So, you think sally is the reason Adam is making so many bad decisions lately.
Victor: Yeah. What do you think he’s doing? He’s doing that ridiculous job at jabot. He’s sleepwalking through his job. He’s failing because of her — sally spectra. The same thing will happen to you.
Nick: How do you know how he’s doing at jabot? You spying on him, dad?
Victor: What the hell do you think?
Nick: What are you planning? You know what? I already know. You hope he fails so he has to come crawling back to Newman yet again.
Victor: I want him here. I want him with his family and with my company.
Nick: You are obsessed with bringing him back to the family. When are you going to get it? It never, ever works. This is getting pathetic.
Victor: This is my company, son. I don’t give a damn who’s CEO or coo. This is my company.
Nick: But now your obsession is spilling over to sally, and i won’t stand for it. She doesn’t deserve this kind of treatment. I’m mad at you, and I’m disappointed in Jill. She doesn’t deserve this kind of interference, especially not right now.
Victor: What do you mean, “especially not right now”?
Nick: She just needs a break, alright? She’s had a rough go of it ever since she was fired from Newman. Now, if I can’t convince you to leave her be for her sake or for mine, then maybe you need to do it for the company.
Victor: What do you mean by that?
Nick: Things are going well here, right?
Nick: I love working with mom and Vick. But if you continue down this path and continue to harass sally, given everything, do not force me to choose between her and this company.
Victor: What do you mean by “given everything”? What are you not telling me?
[ Door opens ]
Victoria: Let me guess. This is about Nick and sally.
Chloe: Eavesdrop much?
Adam: I just walked in and i heard my name. So maybe try talking a few decibels softer. So, what’s the Adam possibility?
Sally: Chloe was just talking about the possibility of you luring me up onto another rooftop to win me back. Only in this version, you don’t screw it up by insulting me.
Chloe: And of course you not screwing up is the worst possibility I could ever imagine.
Adam: Well, I’m just glad to be in your thoughts, Chloe. Although I do find it odd that you’re speculating on sally and I reuniting. I mean, what would make you think that’s possible? You made it clear that we’re done. Has something changed for you?
Jack: I should have known this would lead to some complicated emotions for you, that you would see any change in your parents’ relationship as leading to a chaos and eventual loss.
Kyle: I’m not that pessimistic. But I wanted to let you know it’s on my mind.
Jack: Of course it is. You can forgive your mother for leaving you, but you can never forget.
Kyle: I just think this could end badly — for all of us.
Kyle: I had the same feelings when I let Dina back into my life. I now regret the time I could have spent with her when I was trying to anticipate the very worst. I hope you can avoid that particular pitfall.
Kyle: Maybe I will. I’m just not there yet.
Jack: Look, the most important thing for you to know now is that Diane and I are happy. It’s very early, Kyle. Do we want this to lead to more? Do we want it to grow? Yes, but in a happy, healthy way. So, there is nothing dangerous about my relationship with her.
Kyle: But that’s the hard part for me. Of course I want the two of you to be happy. Part of me is thrilled you’re back together, but —
Jack: Kyle, Kyle, don’t worry. Whatever happens, your family will be okay. It is said that I am a hopeless romantic. Okay. I won’t deny that. I am also very pragmatic. I knew when it was time to end my relationship with Phyllis. Look, I think what I have with your mother is very special, but if this does not work out, we will both be fine. We will both be here for you and your family. That will never change.
Summer: I wouldn’t be too concerned about my mom. I find that she only really goes on the attack when someone she loves is threatened. It’s, um — it’s the mama bear phenomenon.
Diane: [ Laughs ] So, is that a warning for me to behave myself or risk the wrath of Phyllis?
Summer: No, not at all. Because, actually, I’ve realized recently that I share a lot of those same mama bear qualities. And Kyle and Harrison are my world. Their happiness means everything to me. So if someone hurts them…
Diane: So, that’s the warning.
Summer: I’m glad we had a chance to talk.
Adam: Come on, sally. Tell me what initiated the conversation about us reuniting.
[ Cellphone pings ]
Chloe: Ooh! Is that Nick?
Sally: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. He was just dealing with his dad. He wants to meet.
Chloe: Aww. He’s so sweet.
Sally: Nothing has changed. You know, we both agreed that there is no future for us.
Adam: I seem to recall that conversation. But I also remember the context, where it took place.
Sally: No matter where or when that conversation took place, the point is, is that we both agreed that we don’t belong together.
Adam: And yet you and Chloe are here, talking about us.
Chloe: Well, you know me. I love coming up with doomsday scenarios.
Adam: You two enjoy your lunch, okay?
Sally: How am I gonna deal with nine months of this? I mean, what is he gonna think when I start showing?
[ Door opens ]
Summer: Oh, hi.
Phyllis: Ohh, it’s freezing.
Summer: What are you doing here?
Phyllis: Okay, I wanted to tell you I’m going out of town. Um, I just wanted to let you know.
Summer: Okay. Where — where are you going?
Phyllis: Portugal. Yes. I’m going to meet with Heather. [ Sighs ] I’m gonna convince her to take your brother back.
Summer: Mom, that is a monumentally bad idea. That is between Heather and Daniel. You can’t just jet off to Europe and try to fix it.
Phyllis: Well, I can. And that’s what I’m doing.
Summer: [ Sighs ]
Phyllis: My relationship with Heather is very, very good. She respects me.
Summer: Heather? Really? And Daniel is okay with this?
Phyllis: He doesn’t know. I need you to keep it quiet. Listen, I need to do this. I need to fix this for your brother. I’ve got to make this right.
Daniel: There is no one tougher than you. I mean, think of everything that you’ve been through. This is just a bump in the road compared to — I don’t know — fighting cancer.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Well, thank you for the moral support, but I could use some business nuts and bolts right now.
Daniel: I could also contribute support to chancellor’s bottom line once my platform launches to success and acclaim.
Lily: [ Laughs ] That’s true. That’ll be a big revenue stream for us. Can it be ready this afternoon?
Daniel: [ Laughs ] Look, I get it. You need something that’s gonna bring in a lot of money right now. And that would help with your upcoming fight with Devon.
Daniel: You do currently have divisions that are very profitable. Maybe you should be focusing on those and not this video game platform that’s barely in development. And if you think that it is too much to swing right now for the company, that’s okay.
Lily: Wait. I’m sorry. Are you — are you backing out of our deal?
Daniel: No. I’m letting you off the hook. If you feel like my project is just another burden to you, then get rid of it. Lighten the load.
Chloe: You still have some time to come up with a plan. But you can hide it for a while. You just need to wear some, you know, baggy clothes.
Sally: I don’t like baggy. What about flowing?
Chloe: Sure. Call it whatever you want. But you’re not going to be wearing leather pants. I can tell you that much.
Sally: Okay. Well, the longer I can keep Adam from suspecting, the better.
Chloe: Okay, well, the problem is, is that he is so keenly aware of every little detail. And he is the most suspicious person I’ve ever met.
[ Footsteps approaching ]
Nick: Hey. So glad you’re back.
Sally: So glad to be home.
[ Both smooch ]
Sally: I’ve never been healthier.
Victoria: What happened with sally?
Victor: Nothing that wasn’t warranted, you know? Both of your brothers are obviously very attracted to that woman. And as far as I’m concerned, she should get the hell out of town. And the reason she won’t is because she needs to latch onto one of them. You know why? She needs the money.
Victoria: Ah, I see. So you are hoping that she will leave by eliminating her opportunities. And Nicholas caught onto that and he’s dug in his heels. I get it now.
Victor: And then he said that he would choose her over our family, over our company. That’s absolutely preposterous. Why would he do that? I mean, she was a fling. Or is a fling. Nothing more than that. Why would he say something like that? There’s something going on that you and I don’t know about.
Victoria: I’m not her biggest fan, either. But I think we should just forget about sally. We should let Nicholas live his life. He survived Phyllis. He can survive this relationship, too.
Victor: Eh, I’m not so sure.
Victoria: Daddy, please. Everything is running so smoothly at Newman. Please don’t risk driving Nicholas away again.
Victor: [ Breathes deeply ]
Chloe: Well, I’m gonna leave the two of you to catch up.
Nick: See you, Chloe.
Sally: Well, I was hoping our return to L.A. Would be cause for celebration.
Nick: Oh, we’re gonna celebrate. Seriously. I will order some sparkling cider and we can go crazy ’cause very soon there is going to be some good news for you.
Sally: I hope so.
Nick: I’m really sorry your meeting with Jill fell through.
Sally: Yeah, I don’t know what happened. It was so abrupt, and it felt personal. I don’t know. I just assumed maybe someone from los Angeles told her some awful story about me.
[ Sighs ] It just sucks because I’ve changed so much since I’ve been here. You know, and I’m sure Jill loves a good redemption story, so — I don’t know — there has to be some way to salvage it.
Nick: Hey, you know, Jill may not be the only person who likes your idea.
Sally: Yeah. Chloe said that.
Nick: If you were willing to work with chancellor-winters, would you consider bringing your pitch to Newman?
Sally: [ Laughs ] Yes, I’m sure Victor and Victoria would love to have me on their payroll again. And even if I could get them to buy the idea, they would make my life a living hell just for the sport of it.
Nick: [ Sighs ] Yeah. You might be right about that.
Sally: Look, I really appreciate the idea, but I am determined to get this company started on my own. Chloe and I really need to make it work. And I’m not gonna be the kind of person that just folds at any kind of setback.
Nick: Well, I think the most important thing is that you don’t worry about it, alright? I don’t want you to get stressed. It’s not good for you. And you know what I’m talking about.
Sally: Yeah. I do.
Lily: No, no, no, no. You are not getting away that easy. I want omega sphere, okay? This is the perfect opportunity. And we are the perfect home for it. We’re gonna do amazing things together. You said you would give me a week, right? So give me a week. I’m gonna get Jill on board, okay? I can do it. I just need you to trust me. Can you trust me?
Daniel: I can. I do, more than just about anyone else.
Lily: Thank you. I… I needed to hear that more than I even knew.
Summer: I’m sure that Heather does respect you, but that doesn’t mean that you can persuade her to take Daniel back.
Phyllis: Oh. I can. Listen, I’ve spent a lot of time with Heather and Lucy on my trips to savannah. I could talk to her, you know, woman to woman and let her know how far Daniel’s come.
Summer: Mom, you’re not exactly objective when it comes to Daniel.
Phyllis: Don’t you think your brother’s a good man?
Summer: Yeah, well, I’m not objective, either. He’s my brother. I’ve always thought he was a good man.
Phyllis: Exactly! He’s an incredible man. Incredible. I need to convince Heather that he just hit a rough patch. That’s it.
Summer: Mom, Daniel is not gonna be happy about this.
Phyllis: Well, I mean, you’re not gonna tell him. He’s not gonna know.
Summer: [ Sighs ]
Phyllis: And trust me — he’ll be plenty happy when Heather decides to take him back and give their relationship another try. Listen, I need you to do a couple things for me. First of all, if he or anybody else asks, I’m in Florida for a couple days, okay? And most importantly, do not let Daniel sell any part of his project to Tucker McCall while I’m gone.
Summer: How am I supposed to do that?
Phyllis: I don’t know. Just figure it out. If you see them together, separate them. Do what you got to do.
Summer: You know what, mom? You are so much better at that sort of thing. So why don’t you just — why don’t you stay here and you can keep Daniel and Tucker apart?
Phyllis: Ha ha. Nice try. Please do this.
Summer: [ Sighs ]
Phyllis: Listen, I’m doing this for your brother. I’d do the same thing for you.
Summer: That worries me.
Phyllis: You are an amazing woman. I love you so much. I believe in you. And the reason we butt heads is because we’re so much alike.
Summer: [ Inhales deeply ] I love you, too, mom.
Phyllis: I love you! Thank you! Ohh. Trust me. And wish me luck. Wish me luck.
Summer: Good luck.
Phyllis: [ Laughs ]
[ Door opens ]
[ Door closes ]
Music (“I swear”) plays
Victoria: You know, I think we should just forget about whatever’s going on with Nicholas and sally and Adam. Just forget about it and let’s focus on work right now.
Victor: Yeah. Do you have news?
Victoria: I do. After you shared what you learned, I had our people digging deeper into Tucker McCall’s finances.
Victoria: His lender is growing very impatient. He’s late on some of his payments. Sometimes he doesn’t make them at all.
Victor: Hmm. A debt problem. Well… I like the sound of that.
Victoria: We buy up his debt. We own him.
Victor: You think like your father. I love that.
Daniel: [ Sighs ]
Tucker: Ah! Just the man I was looking for. I want to buy you a drink, and i want to explain to you in more detail why McCall unlimited is where you ought to be.
Jack: What a nice surprise.
Diane: Good. Hi.
Jack: Hi. Let me take your coat.
Diane: Oh, thank you. I just had an unsettling conversation with our daughter-in-law.
Jack: Oh? What’s on her mind?
Diane: Well, she clearly feels that this relationship is bound to fail and bring her family down with it.
Jack: I had a similar conversation with Kyle. Turns out you were right, what you said before, that he is not pleased that we are getting back together. You know what? I should have anticipated his concerns. They were legitimate.
Diane: Well, what are they?
Jack: Kyle thinks that if anything happens between the two of us, if things go wrong… that you’ll leave town.
Jack: I guess a fear of abandonment is a hard thing to walk away from when you’ve lived with it for so long.
Diane: Oh, poor Kyle. Jack, are we selfish to be pursuing this? I mean, should we slow things down, maybe not rush things?
Jack: We are not rushing anything. We have known each other for decades.
Diane: [ Laughs ]
Jack: I think we will agree we have taken our time getting reacquainted. And we’re battle-tested. We have been through more — you and I — in the last couple of months than most couples ever go through.
Diane: [ Sighs ]
Jack: And what’s most important — we both want this.
Diane: Mm. You’re right. But we have to agree that, whatever happens, we will be there for Kyle.
Jack: Of course we will. Right now, I just want to be here for you.
Diane: [ Laughs ] Well, good, ’cause here is the only place that I want to be.
Nick: You know, I’m just not that hungry.
Sally: I am.
[ Both laugh ]
[ Cellphone buzzing ]
Sally: I — I have to take this, but if the server comes, can you order two of everything on the menu for me?
[ Footsteps departing ]
Adam: [ Clears throat ] Nicholas.
Nick: [ Sighs ] Adam. Hey, I don’t know if you’re aware of this or not, but I feel like I should give you a heads-up. Dad thinks he can lure you back to Newman.
Adam: [ Chuckles ] To the company or the family?
Nick: Both, actually.
Adam: Mm. Yeah. I, um, heard rumblings to that effect. I’m sure Victor has already got a plan in the works.
Nick: Oh, he definitely does.
Adam: Mm. Well, did you want to share that with me?
Nick: I think he’s gonna try and sabotage your position at jabot so Jack kicks you to the curb and then Dad will be there to welcome you with open arms.
Adam: [ Sighs ] Oh, yeah. I had a feeling he was gonna do something like that. But my question right now is, why do you care, Nick? Why would you tell me any of this?
Nick: I think you’re better off with Jack as a mentor than our father.
Adam: That’s your only motive in sharing this valuable information with me? You’re just looking out for my well-being?
Nick: I’m just trying to help, Adam.
Adam: And you really don’t want to see me back at Newman, though, right?
Nick: No, I don’t.
Adam: [ Laughs ] Oh, you really do have it all, don’t you?
Sally: Okay. Thank you, dr. Chandler. [ Sighs ]
