Adam: I take it billy hasn’t brought the boys back from skating yet?

Chelsea: No, he’s meeting me back here once the rink session ends.

Adam: Ah.

Chelsea: You want to wait with me?

Adam: Thank you.

Chelsea: How’s work?

Adam: Hmm? Excuse me?

Chelsea: I didn’t mean to pry.

Adam: Uh, work is work. It’s — it’s — it’s fine.

Chelsea: Are you okay? You seem a little tense.

Adam: Turns out dear old dad is up to his usual treachery again. So I’m gonna have to watch my back at jabot.

Chelsea: I’m sorry to hear that.

Adam: Yeah. Except for jack, none of the abbotts want me there. I mean, that is so typical for victor to try to sabotage me.

Chelsea: And let me guess. Victor now wants to punish you for turning your back on the family and going to work for “the enemy.”

Adam: Oh, well, according to nick, he’s doing it to save me.

Victor: Oh, my goodness.

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Victor: My sweet granddaughter.

Summer: Hi, grandpa.

Victor: How are you, my darling?

Summer: I’m doing just fine. How are you?

Victor: I’m doing well.

Summer: Good.

Victor: Yeah. Been a while since you and i have talked. How’s harrison?

Summer: Ah, he is a constant bright spot, even when things get challenging.

Victor: Mm. I think I know what you’re alluding to.

Summer: Do you?

Victor: Diane jenkins? Yep. Stunning how that woman was able to insinuate herself into our lives here in genoa city after all that she has done before, not only to jack and kyle’s lives, but considering what she has done in this town. My goodness. Anyway…

Summer: She’s entrenched, alright.

Victor: Yeah, and i understand that jack is doing all kinds of things for her, cleaning up her messes all over the place.

Summer: There’s not much i can do about that. Not that I have to like it.

Victor: No, but it’s complicated for you, isn’t it? Considering how much your mother loathes diane jenkins.

Summer: You want to know what’s even more frustrating?

Victor: Hmm?

Summer: It’s all of these plots and schemes that are constantly going on in both of our families. I mean, honestly, machiavelli had nothing on the newmans or the abbotts.

Victor: Machiavelli? That’s a renaissance man who wrote a book called “the prince” about how to rule people. You know? I mean, very flattering to be brought up in the same sentence with machiavelli, but I think it’s exaggerated, right?

Summer: I don’t think so.

Victor: You don’t?

Summer: I’ve been working really hard to convince kyle that we just need to avoid all the intrigue that is swirling around us, including yours, grandpa.

Victor: Hmm.

Diane: Oh! Hello, nikki. You’re looking well.

Nikki: Save it.

Diane: [ Scoffs ] Excuse me?

Nikki: Don’t waste your breath with friendly chitchat. We are not friends, and we never will be. Could I have some water, please?

Diane: Alright.

Nikki: I know that you and jack were behind the break-in at our apartment in chicago. You stole my necklace and framed jeremy stark for it.

Diane: [ Scoffs ] What a bizarre accusation. Do you have any evidence to back it up?

[ Elevator doors opening ]

Jack: Kyle. You got a minute?

Kyle: Sure. I assume this is about what we discussed before, you and mom and where that’s headed? I just had a long talk with her.

Jack: No, it’s another subject entirely. I heard a rather disturbing rumor I’m hoping you can dispel.

Kyle: What rumor’s that?

Jack: Victor is plotting against adam, trying to undermine his work here, and you’re helping him to implement it.

Kyle: Where is this coming from?

Jack: It doesn’t matter. Just tell me it isn’t true. Technically when enamel is gone,

Kyle: Victor did approach me, but I haven’t committed to anything specific.

Jack: Then you have considered it. Look, I know you had misgivings about my hiring adam to pick up the slack here when you moved over to marchetti, but —

Kyle: Look, you’re the guy’s only real friend, which should tell you something, but that’s your call. However, when you make him co-ceo of the family company, I get to have an opinion.

Jack: You think adam is trying to take over jabot?

Kyle: No, no, no. I don’t know what his motives are, but I can tell you what he’s done since he’s been here. Not much. The guy is coasting, dad, calling it in from the bar at society most days and drawing a big, fat paycheck with primo perks while he sorts out that mess he calls a life. Am I wrong? How would you rate his job performance?

Jack: I have gone over status reports on the different divisions that adam oversees. I have spoken to division managers.

Kyle: Just like I have. And?

[ Folder thuds ]

Jack: And you are right. While he started strong, he has been slipping lately.

Kyle: More like M.I.A. Totally dropping the ball. It’s pretty unacceptable from a guy at his —

Jack: That is still something for adam and I to work through.

Kyle: [ Sighs ]

Jack: Not you, not anyone else. Victor certainly doesn’t have a place in this conversation. Frankly, neither do you.

Victor: So, my beautiful granddaughter, what’s on your mind?

Summer: There’s no point in talking around this, so I’m just gonna come right out and say it.

Victor: Okay.

Summer: Please stop trying to get kyle to help you with your plan to punish adam.

Victor: You seem upset.

Summer: I am upset. Things with kyle were going great. We were running marchetti. We were raising harrison. It was total bliss.

Victor: Sweetheart, the last thing I want to do is disturb that bliss.

Summer: The thing is, grandpa, is people in both of our families are involved in all of these secret maneuvers. It’s causing a lot of friction in our family.

Victor: So, where’s all this coming from?

Summer: [ Sighs ] Grandpa, my husband and I don’t keep things from each other.

Victor: Mm.

Summer: Kyle told me that you were looking for a way to push adam out of jabot and that you offered up some textile mills in exchange for his assistance. I mean, kyle doesn’t love having adam in the mix over there, but thankfully he turned you down. He told me that he didn’t want any part of it. So, what I’m asking you is to please stop asking him about it because he is not gonna change his mind.

Victor: Tell me something, sweetheart. Do you, um, think adam is where he belongs?

Adam: Victor’s plan du jour is to get me fired from jabot, after which he’ll dangle some irresistible position at newman, and then he will follow it up with a hearty welcome home. I mean, only — only victor newman would view trying to tank my career as an act of paternal affection.

Chelsea: Is he succeeding? Is your job in jeopardy?

Adam: No, not yet. I mean, at least not that I know of. Do you wanna hear what the punch line is? I’M…not happy at jabot.

Chelsea: Really? Why?

Adam: [ Sighs ] I don’t fit in there. As much as I try to, I just — I don’t connect to the work or the products that we sell there or the people…

Chelsea: [ Chuckles ]

Adam: …That I supervise.

Chelsea: That’s frustrating.

Adam: Yeah. As much as I hate to admit it and as much as my father’s methods are infuriating and wildly inappropriate… his instincts are dead on. Skin feeling dry? Swipe it away.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Nikki: You know, there have been such incredible advances in security technology — cameras so small they can be hidden anywhere. And the image quality? Ooh, so sharp.

Diane: I saw your reaction when it occurred to you that jack might have let himself into your apartment and maybe borrowed your necklace. And for a second, I thought you were going to suggest it to chance, but you didn’T. So I suspect that if you did have proof and you wanted to use it, you would have done so by now.

Nikki: Keep telling yourself that.

Diane: Mm-hmm, yeah. And as much as you hate me, i really don’t believe you’d put jack in that position just to get back at me. Besides, I also think you’re glad jeremy’s gone, however it happened, because your family was in danger, just like mine, thanks to phyllis and her recklessness.

Nikki: You seem quite confident that you’ve gotten away with another crime, as if everything is working out just as you planned. But you and I both know that’s an act because deep down, even you don’t believe it.

Kyle: I haven’t done a thing to adam. I haven’t needed to. He has done a great job sabotaging himself.

Jack: I understand why you might think that you, but —

Kyle: Dad, you went so far out on a limb for that guy, knowing there wasn’t a single person in our family who would support him being co-ceo. You risked alienating everyone because you believed so strongly in adam. He claimed he wanted to redeem himself, he want to turn his life around, like he always does. And this is how he repays you, doing mediocre work and dragging the company down?

Jack: You can’t say he’s dragging jabot down —

Kyle: No, this isn’t about whether victor has a plan to undermine adam or not. Who cares? The point is, he doesn’t deserve the position of authority you gave him. He shouldn’t be at jabot, full stop. Hell, the guy doesn’t even want to be here. So, what is this about, dad? Why not cut him loose and call it a day?

Chelsea: This is the first time I’m hearing you’re dissatisfied working at jabot.

Kyle: [ Sighs ] Well, it’s the first time that I’m admitting it out loud. I mean, you know — I left newman because I was fed up with being disrespected, being strung along, being told that I’m valued but never being part of the inner circle. I mean, victoria has never missed a chance to remind me of that.

Chelsea: Yeah, but jack is finally giving you the status, the respect that you deserve, along with trust and responsibility. Why isn’t that enough for you?

Adam: That is a great question. And jack’s a true friend. He handed me a terrific opportunity. Trust me — I know how selfish and ungrateful I sound right now.

Chelsea: I’m not judging you. I’m just wondering what’s going on with you.

Adam: Yeah. Well, me too.

Chelsea: You know, when I was doing two fashion jobs at once and I wasn’t feeling passionate about either one of them, you gave me some good advice. You told me to step back instead of burning myself out, even though I didn’t want to listen to you.

Adam: Well, the last thing i think I am is overworked. To be honest with you, I’ve been slacking big time.

Chelsea: Well, that’s not like you.

Adam: Yeah. Well, maybe when I’m not up to something devious or trying to prove myself to someone who doubts me, I lose motivation.

Chelsea: Hmm. Well, maybe you need to make some enemies around the office.

Adam: I think besides jack, nobody wanted me to work there, so I don’t think that’s the issue. I have plenty of haters. I don’t know what’s wrong with me.

Chelsea: You know, another upside to working at jabot — you’re free from all that newman drama, which is something you’ve said you’ve always wanted.

Adam: Yeah. That is a good point.

Chelsea: However, on the other hand, jabot is a different kind of company than you’re used to working at, for sure. It’s a lot more laid-back, narrowly focused on cosmetics, definitely, you know, not as much of a challenge to run.

Adam: Well, I’m certainly not in any danger of running newman ever again.

Chelsea: If victor made you a great offer — I mean a great offer — where you could thrive, show off your talents, finally get the respect you deserve, you’re telling me you wouldn’t do it? Did you know, some ordinary cold medicines can raise your blood pressure?

Adam: I can’t imagine a scenario where I would be tempted to go back to newman. Last time I was there, they treated me like crap. “You’re ceo. Now you’re not.” And like you said, I have no desire to get sucked into their constant drama.

Chelsea: Well, that’s not really an answer. Just because you can’t imagine a scenario doesn’t mean it couldn’t exist.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Well, you got me there.

Chelsea: And you admitted yourself you don’t think that victor is trying to punish you with this little scheme of his. So, then why go to all the trouble? Do you think maybe, just maybe, deep down, he believes that you belong in his family, that you belong to be a part of this big newman empire, and maybe, in your heart of hearts, that’s what you want, too?

Adam: He might believe that. I guarantee you none of the rest of them care what I want.

Chelsea: That might be true. But victor is the only one who matters. Hi!

Billy: Hey. Connor, it’s your fan club.

Connor: Where?

Chelsea: No, he means us, silly. How was skating?

Connor: Totally great.

Johnny: Except for all the times dad fell on his butt.

Billy: Alright, I was little rusty.

Connor: I thought you were billy.

Johnny: Good one.

Billy: Alright, who wants hot chocolate?

Johnny: Ooh, I do!

Connor: Me!

Billy: Okay, good. So, go order whatever you want. Grab me a small coffee, please. Anybody else want anything?

Chelsea: I’m good, thanks.

Johnny: I thought you were chelsea.

Chelsea: Ohh!

Connor: You stole my joke.

Johnny: No, I didn’T.

Connor: Yeah, you did.

Johnny: It had to be funny to be a joke.

Connor: Ha ha.

Billy: Okay.

Summer: Only jack and adam can answer that question.

Victor: I want to hear it from you. You think that adam deserves to be co-ceo at jabot?

Summer: I think… I think it’s problematic. I mean, not everyone is a fan of his, and, honestly, I don’t really know why jack ever made that choice. And I don’t see how it ends well for anyone.

Victor: So, you don’t think adam has changed?

Summer: Is that a serious question?

Victor: Mm-hmm. You know, your father thinks that he deserves more of a chance.

Summer: Well, that’s because adam gave faith a kidney. And even that wasn’t enough to keep up the goodwill. I think my dad has realized with the rest of us always have known — that these flashes of humanity, they never last. Whenever adam does something good or heroic, it’s always calculated. It’s transactional. It’s because he wants something in return.

Victor: A lot of truth to what you say. But adam is my son.

Summer: Well, you know what, grandpa? It’s not even really about what my dad thinks or my opinion or even what adam does. This is about you trying to convince kyle to facilitate adam’s return to newman, which could cause a huge conflict between him and jack. And that’s the last thing my husband needs.

Victor: My darling, i appreciate your honesty, okay? And I will give what you said a lot of thought.

Summer: [ Sighs ] The last thing I want to do is be upset with you, grandpa.

Victor: You know that I adore you, okay?

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Jack: You criticize adam all you want. His role at jabot is not up for debate. He answers to me, not you, not victor. And his work does not affect you or marchetti.

Kyle: Dad, listen to me —

Jack: I’ve listened to you! Now you listen to me. I stand by my decision to hire adam, and I will address his performance the same way I do any valued executive in this company. What I won’t do is fire him to please victor or to satisfy you. I am delighted that you are not involved in victor’s manipulations, but I will speak to him very soon.

Kyle: No, I really —

Jack: No, I think I’m done on this particular subject. I’d like to change the subject. There’s something else I’d like to talk to you about.

Kyle: What’s that?

Jack: You said you had a conversation with your mother. How did that go? Did you find it reassuring, her devotion, her commitment to you and the family, despite anything that might happen between the two of us?

Kyle: I’m trying to be open to this, dad, for your sake. I want you to be happy, both you and mom. But… look, just be careful, alright? Protect yourself.

Jack: What in particular is prompting that warning?


“The young and the restless”

will continue. Wait… do you use singlecare?

Johnny: The best part — there was a hockey game on the second rink and connor played it.

Chelsea: You did? Like a pickup game?

Connor: Yeah.

Chelsea: Ah.

Adam: Well, how was it?

Connor: Epic. I wish you guys would have come.

Chelsea: If I got back on skates right now, I would end up entirely black and blue.

Johnny: [ Gasps ] You two could have matching bruises.

Billy: Oh, come on. I did not fall that often.

Johnny: He’s getting old. It happens.

Connor: [ Laughs ]

Billy: You know what? You’re — you’re — you’re now grounded.

Johnny: Oh, just like you were when you hit that ice and just absolutely sprawled out?

Billy: Alright, already! Enough is enough.

Connor: I think the grown-ups are better off sitting on the benches and talking about old movies or whatever, like they always do.

Chelsea: Well, that sounds about right. That’s pretty much our speed. Yeah.

Connor: [ Laughs ]

Billy: Cheers to old people.

Chelsea: Cheers to old people.

[ Laughs ]

Kyle: On the whole, it was a good talk. I felt like we were both being honest, and I got a lot off my chest.

Jack: Good. I’m glad to hear that.

Kyle: Mom was adamant there would be no more surprises from her past.

Jack: That’s a good thing. Or you doubt that?

Kyle: I don’t want to see you get hurt again. You’ve had your heart broken enough. I told her that.

Jack: And you think that’s inevitable?

Kyle: I hope not. God knows we’ve all been through enough trauma, but, dad, she has a history of making promises she can’t keep. Then we get surprised by people like jeremy stark.

Jack: He is no longer a threat.

Kyle: You took a big risk handling that. I appreciate it, and I know mom does, too. Although I’m still upset you handled it on your own and wouldn’t let me in.

Jack: You know what? That’s over. It’s taken care of.

Kyle: This time.

Jack: There will not be a next time, not if I have anything to say about it.

Kyle: And to answer your question… I am cautiously optimistic.

Jack: Good. Kyle, I am taking this next step with my eyes wide open. I hope you can see the positive aspects in all of this. I am happy. Diane is happy.

Kyle: That counts for a lot, dad.

Jack: Your parents have worked through the trauma of the past and are looking to a bright new future together. That is a very good thing.

Diane: I’m feeling optimistic about the future. Very optimistic.

Nikki: Well, you have nothing to fear from me. I’m not going to inject myself into the police investigation. And you’re right. Jeremy stark should never have been lured to town. It’s just as well for everybody that he has been arrested.

Diane: Oh. So, you’re acknowledging that i was right. That’s a first.

Nikki: Don’t get too excited. It’s merely another case of you using deception to get what you want, making jack do your dirty work.

Diane: Mm. Hypothetically speaking, if jack

had stolen your necklace, it would be because he wouldn’t let me take that risk.

Nikki: Well, I’m sure he enjoyed playing the hero. And given your optimism, perhaps this little brush with danger brought the two of you even closer. All that heightened emotion. Tell me — have you moved in with jack yet? Ah, not yet. Mustn’t appear too eager. But I’m sure you will make him think it’s his idea and he’ll jump into it with such enthusiasm and hope — because that’s the kind of person he is. But you have to know how ugly things will turn out because that’s just the natural course of things where you are concerned and that’s the kind of person you are.

Diane: You know, you’re behind the times, nikki. I haven’t moved in, but jack and I are back together already.

Nikki: Ugh. That’s unfortunate. He’s such a smart man, except when it comes to you.

Diane: No, he’s wise not to let other people’s opinions keep him from being happy.

Nikki: I guess jeremy stark’s sojourn to genoa city worked out well for you. It gave you the opportunity to play the damsel in distress, which a man as chivalrous as jack will find very appealing. You really should be grateful to phyllis.

Diane: [ Scoffs ] I’ll be sure and send her a thank-you card.

Nikki: I wouldn’T. Phyllis is all about the long game. So she will hold on to it and then throw it in your face when things inevitably fall apart.

Diane: Things won’T. What jack and I have is exciting and intense, but there’s also comfort and security in our history and the family we share. It’s real and it’s happening and it’s going to last a long, long time. And there’s nothing that you or ashley or phyllis can do to stop it. You see, nikki, that’s the natural course of things. So you better get used to it and leave us alone.

[ Keys jangling ]

Jack: [ Sighs ]

[ Keys clatter ]

Diane: Jack, I want you to know that I would never do anything to drive you away again.

Jack: Oh, god —

Diane: No, after everything I’ve been through and — and all those years, I — I know what it’s like to lose you. And kyle. To be alone. And I will — I will never put myself at risk for that again.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Jack: Chance. Hi. Uh, this is a surprise. What brings you by?

Chance: I am here on official police business. Ladies…

Jack: I’m not sure what this is about, but I’m always happy to help the gcpd.

Chance: Actually, I’m here on behalf of the chicago police department. Apparently this belongs to you.

Jack: Yeah, that looks familiar.

Chance: We found it when we did a more thorough search of mr. Stark’s suite. There’s $500,000 in there. Mr. Stark’s claiming that you loaned it to him.

Jack: Yeah, that’s right.

Chance: Well, since there’s no evidence that links this to the crime, it’s been released from police custody. So I guess you can consider your loan paid in full, assuming this is it.

Jack: Yeah, yeah, it certainly appears to be.

Chance: You want to know what I find really interesting, jack? That day I arrested stark, you and diane showed up, and you claimed you were there to discuss the money that diane owed stark. Yet you just handed him this great deal of cash. So, why was it still an issue?

Jack: Stark claimed that diane would never be in the clear until she paid him back herself.

Chance: Really? Then why did he take your money?

Jack: Well, I can’t begin to tell you how a criminal’s mind works, but I-I assume he… just the fact that he didn’t spend the money means he meant what he said.

Chance: I’m surprised he didn’t want to hold on to it, pay his lawyers. I mean, he’s looking at a pretty expensive trial, jack.

Jack: Well, I’m sure it looks pretty bad when a convicted money launderer has this kind of cash on hand. I’m sure he wanted to make it clear that he obtained it legally. But, I mean, that’s just a guess.

Chance: Why didn’t you mention this to me that day at the hotel, jack?

Jack: It didn’t seem relevant. I had no idea it was still in the suite. I assumed he’d put it in a bank somewhere.

Chance: Right. Well, this certainly has worked out for you, hasn’t it? Stark’s locked up, and you don’t lose a dime.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, that’s, uh, pretty convenient. Have a good night, jack.

Jack: Take care, chance.

[ Door closes ] Wow.

Chelsea: Well, I’m glad you boys would have been willing to include me in all of your fun, but I actually had a bunch of things that I needed to accomplish today.

Billy: Checking things off the list — nothing more satisfying than that. Watch out, dmv. Here comes chelsea.

Chelsea: That’s right. I got this guy some extra school supplies, picked up some groceries — popcorn, of course, ultimate cheddar.

Billy: Thank you. My favorite.

Johnny: Well, while you guys were doing old-people things, connor was crushing it in the hockey game. He out-skated me, plus a ton of older guys. They were all like, “who is this kid?”

Chelsea: Hey!

Connor: It was cool.

Adam: Well, I would like to come see you next time, see you in action. But right now, uh, we should be heading home.

Connor: Okay. Thanks for taking us.

Billy: Anytime. It was my pleasure. Uh, you ready to go? Why don’t you make sure you got everything? I’m gonna drop you off at your mom’S. Are we, uh, still on for later? You want to try and grab something to eat?

Chelsea: Yeah. I’m looking forward to it.

Billy: Okay, great. You ready?

Johnny: Yeah.

Diane: [ Sighs ] Whoa. What a day.

Jack: Hey. Come here.

Diane: Aww. Mm.

Jack: You just missed chance.

Diane: Was he here on police business?

Jack: Yes, but in a nice way. The good detective was here to make a delivery — the half-million dollars I gave to stark.

Diane: You got it back?

Jack: Yep. It was confiscated when he was arrested. All the money was inside a briefcase with my initials on it. Stark claimed I had loaned him the money, and I hadn’t reported any stolen money, so the good folks at the chicago police department released it to me. It is in the safe right now.

Diane: Oh, that is so good to hear. I felt so guilty knowing that you handed all that money to jeremy just to get him to leave me alone.

Jack: A small price to pay for your safety.

Diane: [ Chuckles ]

Jack: Though we now know he was after more than just money. But we managed to turn the tables on him, working together.

Diane: Yeah.

Jack: Hey. What’s wrong?

Diane: Uh, I ran into nikki at the hotel.

Jack: Well, that couldn’t have been fun.

Diane: No, and she is certain that we orchestrated jeremy’s arrest by stealing her necklace.

Jack: Did she threaten you? Did she have any proof?

Diane: No, no. She tried to make me think she did. She was trying to make me nervous, but I called her bluff. I said that even if she did have proof, that she wouldn’t use it in that way because she knows that it would hurt you just to get back at me.

Jack: Good for you.

Diane: [ Sighs ] Yeah, but, uh — but then I probably said more than I should have.

Diane: I can’t guarantee what the future holds for me and jack, but I can promise you that whatever happens, I will never abandon you again.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

[ Knock on door ]

Kyle: Hey.

Summer: Hi.

[ Both breathe deeply ]

Kyle: Hello to you, too.

Summer: Thank you. I needed that.

Kyle: Well, you don’t hear me complaining.

Summer: How’s your day going?

Kyle: Oof. Turns out running a global fashion house is easier than managing my family.

Summer: Mm. Dealing with bad stuff can be a challenge.

Kyle: Yeah, my parents are moving so fast, and they think i ought to be thrilled for them.

Summer: And you’re not there yet. I get it. Neither am I.

Kyle: Don’t get me wrong. I want things to work out for them.

Summer: But like we discussed earlier, it affects us and harrison.

Kyle: Especially considering the blowback it’ll have on my dad. A lot of people are gonna hate he’s getting involved with my mom.

Summer: Yeah, like my mom and ashley, nikki.

Kyle: On top of that, someone told him victor is planning to get adam out of jabot with my help.

Summer: How did jack react?

Kyle: He was relieved when i told him I wasn’t participating.

Summer: Okay, see? Aren’t you glad that you listened to me? I mean, my grandpa may have convinced himself that what he’s doing is in adam’s best interests, but it has the potential to cause a huge conflict between you and your dad.

Kyle: Mm. To say the least.

Summer: I actually just ran into my grandpa.

Kyle: Yeah?

Summer: Yeah. I told him to stop trying to pressure you into going along with his plan — since you’re staying out of it. Y-you are, right?

[ Knock on door ]

Adam: I was looking for jack.

Kyle: He’s not here, as you can see.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Uh-huh. I gather you know what your husband’s up to? Victor… why are you still living with odors?

Nikki: It’s bad enough that diane is gonna get away with yet another caper. But now she’s glommed on to jack, bragging about how close they’ve become. It makes me sick.

Victor: They deserve each other. Let that be their punishment.

Nikki: [ Sighs ]

Jack: What exactly did you say to nikki that you wish you hadn’t?

Diane: [ Sighs ] I swear she was channeling phyllis. She was trying to push all my buttons. You know, basically, nikki told me that my life is destined to go down in flames.

Jack: I’m sorry she put you through that.

Diane: Yeah, I couldn’t stand that smug, condescending look on her face, so I said, “actually, no, my life is fabulous,” which it is. I told her that you and I were in a good place and that she needed to get used to seeing us together again. But maybe I shouldn’t have been so…

Jack: What? Provocative?

Diane: [ Chuckles ]

Jack: Why not? You were telling the truth. We have nothing to hide.

Diane: I can’t tell you how much I love hearing you say that, how good it makes me feel. But you know it’s just a matter of time before people start seeing us together again. Are you sure you’re ready for that?

Jack: Bring it on.

Diane: [ Laughs ]

Jack: I am very happy right now. Nothing is going to take that away from me.

Diane: Mm.

Adam: I assume that, kyle, given the kind of man you are, you share everything with your wife. Surely you know that he’s been working with victor to get me exiled from jabot. Yeah, I’m just — I’m surprised that you would do something so underhanded, knowing how royally it’s gonna piss off jack, and that you would go along with it.

Summer: Adam, whatever you think is going on, kyle has no part in it, and neither do I. And I don’t like the accusations you’re throwing around.

Adam: It really means that much to you to have me gone?

Kyle: Why don’t you just admit you really don’t even want to be here?

Adam: [ Sighs ]

[ Chuckles ]

Billy: [ Sighs ]

Chelsea: Hey.

Billy: Hi. You look great.
