THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
The profit margin. Oh, Chan now baby, you’re making your mama so proud of you starting a business with nothing but some recipes and a cookie sheep. Now just look at what you’ve accomplished. Oh, oh. Why in the hell did the rest of her life have to blow up in the poor girl’s face?
Hey, Abe , I hate yourself. Hey, you know I, I stopped by the bakery earlier. You did. I, I didn’t see you. I couldn’t get in. The line was too, Now that’s what I would call a morning rush. You’re the morning rush. That turns into the lunch rush. That turns into the afternoon rush. Well, business is booming. Yeah, it is.
I usually don’t close until I run outta stuff to sell. Actually, today was a record. Well, guess I’m too late for my bearclaw. Yeah, you are too late for a bearclaw . But how do you feel about chocolate chip cookies? I thought you said you were clothes. Well, I always save a little something sweet for my special customers.
It’s like you
I feel like I’ve stumbled into a clan dust time meeting of co-conspirators. Uh, two Johnny. Okay. All right. No paranoid much. I just came to ask Wendy if she wanted to go to lunch with me. Oh, really? Where were you thinking of going? We hadn’t gotten that far yet because I didn’t hear you talking about the pub versus buddies burgers.
I heard you talking about my brother Stephan, and drugs and me.
I’m convinced that I love you. And I love you too. God, I have missed you and I, you. I’m sorry for all the ways I mistreated you. Oh, don’t apologize. It’s not your fault. Look, what matters is that we’re together now. Finally, finally,
what the hell’s going on?
Again, what the hell do you think you’re doing, Lee? What I am doing is I am kissing the woman I love. May I remind you that that woman is my wife? No, you really don’t need to do that because in no uncertain terms, Gabby just told me the same thing.
Sloan, is your attorney Sloan Peterson know of any other Sloan? Well, you told me too. Broke up and she was furious with you. She was. Then why did she take the case? We sort of. Sort of what is that supposed to mean? Exactly what it sounds like? Why would I give up the best sex of my life and why would he?
Isn’t that right, baby? Ah, Eric, I, I think your lawyer is a bit taken with you. I mean, she can’t seem to resist kissing you in a public place in front of your ex-wife. Wait, what? You don’t think it’s because I’m here? Do you? You don’t think she’s marking her territory? Do you sprain her scent like a feral cat?
A young feral cat. Hey, do you have an appointment? That’s right, Eric. I do my place tonight. Let yourself in. I might already be infant tramp. So am I gonna read about tonight’s mom in tomorrow’s spectator? I know she likes to make your sex life a matter of public record. I mean, Eric. Mm. It is so big of you to not feel, oh gosh, what’s the words I’m looking for?
Used or demeaned? I mean, it’s quite surpris. Actually, cuz Dignity used to be important to you. But she did run it by you, didn’t she? I mean, she didn’t just go to that little weasel, Leo Stark and Bray about the intimate details of your life without talking to you first. Did she? I mean, she didn’t act like a high school quarterback, regaling in locker room with stories of doing the dumb cheerleader bitch.
Oh, ooh, ooh. Careful counselor. I invented that move
like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.
You invented that when? When the earth was cooling. Oh. Oh dear. I’m sorry. Was that an insult? Like you drew blood by pointing out the fact that I’m older than you. Ooh, what a witty thing to say, Eric. Really? You couldn’t do better than this. Eric here. You’re right. I have an appointment
I’ll leave you with your memories of your days in the sun. Okay. Bye-Bye.
Did you enjoy that, Nicole?
No. No, Eric, I didn’t.
It didn’t look like she was telling you she was married. It looked like she was kissing you. Believe me, Lee, when I say that, that was a one-sided kiss. Really? Yes. You see, Gabby texted me. Meet her here to talk. And I was like, Baba Booie. This is the first day of the rest of our new life together. And then she got here and then she was like, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Stop the clock. And she told me about the, the grand gesture that you made to, to save your marriage. Right. It was a simple contract, basically you promising her your demaris shares in exchange for, for six months. And forced cohabitation. And I gotta tell you that that is one of the most romantic things I have ever heard in my life.
And despite that, I said to her, screw the contract, run away with me. You know, in the name of love. But she was adamant and determined to stick to the. And that’s when I mistakenly thought that the arter of my kiss could convince her to renig on her side of the agreement. And that’s when you showed up in the nick of time, as it were.
Oh, no, Lee, Lee, Lee, you had nothing to worry about because as much as I hate to admit it, as you can see, my words did not sway. A bit, Stephen. I don’t like to be jumped and I don’t like it when a man doesn’t listen. When I say no,
am I supposed to believe that because of the contract, you’re rejecting the man that you moved heaven and earth to get back. For me, a deal’s a deal. Okay? I signed that contract and I intend to abide by it. And, and listen to me. If you want me to extend at the end of six months, you better stop acting like a.
You’re saying I overreacted. I’m saying I’m abiding by the contract. And that’s all you can expect for now.
You’re right. You are holding up your end of the deal and it’s up to me to win you back. You know, leave for what it’s worth, dog. I mean bell you gotta do is maybe just kidnap her and brainwasher and then maybe chauffer. Forget all the crazy crap you pulled about abiding by the contract Gabby. In the spirit of openness, I want to tell you something that I just found out.
Something in the fine print and what’s that? Just a little cosal about what you can and cannot do over the next six months. Kind of like a morals clause.
Okay. All right. The, the, the thing is, after what we, you and I talked about this morning, I, uh, I did ask Wendy, you know, how she thought Stefan was doing, and I did. come here to take her to lunch. Uh, but then when I got here, she was installing some spyware on his computer, not on my own. Stefan knew I was going to, right?
Yes. Um, and, and anyway, that just got me thinking a little bit about Stephanie. And so I did, I, I, I, I, I told her that you were, you know, worried about him, about Stefan. Worried about him? Well, yeah, cuz of, you know, all he’s been through, just worried in general. Well, I wouldn’t worry about that. Great. Uh, so then you want to do, uh, the pub or, or, or buddies, burgers.
However, you should worry, both of you about lying to me.
I haven’t seen you much around home. Oh yeah, I’ve been pretty busy with the bakery. We’re shorthanded since, since Holly left. Since Holly left. Chanel.
I’m afraid I’m going to, I’m gonna put my foot. Go ahead, Abe, please just say, say what you’re thinking. You know, you don’t have to stay away because you feel you have to cover up your feelings around us, especially your mom. And we both know how jolly hurt you. I heard her too. Her hooking up with Alex was a nail in our coffin, but it all started when I couldn’t really let go of Johnny.
So you told Wendy about my concern that Stephanie is using drugs. Well, like I said, I’m worried about him too. I just asked Wendy, is she seen anything? Yeah, I swear Mr. Deir, I won’t tell anybody trying to, well, I hope not for Stefan’s sake. For the. Look Dad, you can trust Wendy. Okay? I promise. Well, I’ll have to, won’t I?
But on the other hand, having you in the loop on this matter might be something that works to my advantage. Your advantage in trying to help my brother a morals pause. It stipulates that if at any time during the six months we are still, wed you. Commit adultery. Our deal becomes null and void and those shares revert to me.
But lucky for us, you turn down your ex-husband.
How about this Nicole? New rule. Moving on. As they say, we need to keep from judging other people’s bad decisions.
You know, when we were together, I spent a lot of time thinking about what it would be like if Marlena was my mother. And you know, I thought it would be heaven. It was so, it must be hell dealing with losing her. Listen, I’ve spent the night in jail and I’m really exhausted. Okay? Listen, Eric, you, you cannot be with that woman.
She is bad for you. Give my best ej No wait. She is a terrible person. She came here purposely to destroy a young woman’s life. And I know, I know, I know, I know EJ did that and more. But look, I’m not a good person, so it it, it doesn’t matter if I’m with ej, but you, you mean with that woman. I, I just don’t know who you are anymore.
Eric. I mean, do you. It’s like you’re lost out at sea and she is the anchor.
Hi. Sorry I’m late. Busy morning. Well, I read in the papers the mess your brothers are in. I assume you were helping them out. Oh yes. Well, I was helping Brady out. I got him out on bail, but, left Eric there to fend for himself. Hmm. I can’t say that I blame you considering the way he defended Sloan Peterson trying to slew us into oblivion.
Oh, by the way, where do we stand on that? Ah, actually I checked in with the lead attorney at the firm that you hired for your case, and he said it’s been pretty quiet. Hmm. No news. Good news. Right. Um, while we’re on this subject, uh, I wanted to talk to you about my retainer. It seems like there was a.
Problem with the check that you gave me. What would that be? It bounced. What? Oh, that is not possible. Okay. Well, I got this alert on my phone, uh, from the bank. You know what, I’ll call the bank, find out what the hell, apple, oh, uh
oh. Hello? Uh, hello. Yeah, Regina. Yeah, this is Paul. No. No, I haven’t. I haven’t checked my messages yet up, but I was what? What do you mean? All of my assets were frozen? I don’t even know. I don’t know how that’s even possible. Hmm. I do.
What the hell are you doing? Again? I came here to answer all your questions about your assets being frozen and to give you this,
it’s a court order. From this day forward, you’re gonna need the court’s prior. For any and all expenditures. That’s my money. Not for long. It isn’t like I told you before, I’m gonna take you for every last cent.
So why you decided to set up an intervention? Prevent me from making bad decisions. I’m worried about you. Why? Why? Because I’m a good man and Sloan is a bad woman. She’s a Jezebel who’s trying to corrupt me. When have you decided to start passing judgment? She is the opposite of everything you believe in.
Don’t, no, do not tell me what I believe in. I’ve lived my entire life. Or some moral code. I know I was there. Yeah. Well, my mother, who is the greatest person that I have ever known, who is no longer on this earth anymore because of Orpheus and Kristen Amira, who aren’t worth the powder to blow them back to hell where they belong.
I don’t give a damn about right or wrong. Song, if she’s bad for me, makes bad decisions. You know what? The sex is really good, and that’s all that I really care about right now, and I can settle for that. Have we got it? Are we clear? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. We’re clear. Okay. You have a new vocation now. You’re gonna be a shallow jerk and God only knows that you are the perfect person to show you the robes.
You know what? Have fun tonight. I’m sure I’ll read about it tomorrow.
You think it’s an advantage that I’m in the loop. I don’t say this often enough. For Johnny was right. You never say that. Actually, it’s a good idea to have someone who works with Steph and be aware that there might be a problem. You know? I don’t know. I don’t know. Maybe instead of spying on him, it could be a good idea to just talk to him directly.
Don’t ask him if he’s using perhaps down the line, but I don’t wanna take that step until we’re sure of our facts. I don’t want rumors in innuendo flying around the office, and I don’t want board members using it as ammunition against Stephan. I think we should keep what we know to ourselves. Because we all know that we only have Stephan’s best interest at heart.
Hey, are you all right? Fine. I would imagine he’s a little disappointed at the way his day is going. Did you find it clause 2.6 on marital duties? Yes, Lee, I found. I don’t mean to keep harping on it, but I think it’s only fair that you know the contract and everything that you signed so you don’t, you know, slip up.
I mean, it would be a travesty to lose all those shares and all that lovely power because that one can’t keep his hands off you and. With the stakes this high, even the appearance of infidelity could be disastrous to you. Well, thank you for looking out for me, for looking out for my best interests. I just don’t want there to be any misunderstandings down the road.
But like I said, you already told him to take a hike even before you knew the consequences, and I have to. This contract is turning out to be a capital idea, shall we?
We can’t have you hide in your assets claiming that you don’t have the means to pay the eight figure judgment that I’m gonna get whenever the jewelry comes back. Ruling that you and your tramp daughter are the reason for my mother’s wrongful death, right? So if Chanel is a tramp, then what’s your father?
A predator or just a sad academic cliche? Look at it. This. This is like a dress rehearsal for your life as a popper. You do know, counselor, that you and the judge are overreaching here. Don’t worry, Paul. I will file a motion and have this undone. I’m just delaying the inevitable. When this is done, I’m gonna have all of your houses, all your businesses, in every last crumb from your daughter’s baker.
You know, it’s been my experience that a marriage doesn’t survive when the man has been possessed by the devil. It can be hard to find closure. Tell me about it now. Now that alley’s out of the picture. We thinking about starting over with Johnny.
Actually, no. He’s moved on with Wendy Shin,
you know? Hmm. I think you and I have something in common. Yeah. The love of Ancho. We both have families where it’s impossible to know when or if someone is telling the truth. Do you think my dad’s lying? I truly don’t know, but I do have a strong feeling that he didn’t confide in us just because he is worried about his brother.
Are you implying that you think my father might have a hidden agenda? What is this about ej?
You were going to see Gabby, weren’t you? Surprised you back so soon. Don’t tell me there’s trouble in paradise.
You seem. Such insight. You just spelled out the term for the contract and put me on alert to stay away from Stephan, a fellow you needed to know. Oh, and thank you for that. Now I’m gonna tell you what you need to know. I will not put up with being stalked. I don’t follow. Oh, you literally did follow. How did you know where I was?
Were you tailing me? Did you have some guy do it for you? I think you’re being paired and I think you’re being insufferable. You asked for six months, you got six months. That means we live together, not that you own me. And yes, to be clear, we are still legally. But let’s, let’s remember that history teaches us that a vindictive wife can do a hell of a lot of damage to her husband’s financial holdings and the trajectory of his career.
So if I were you from now on, I would be very, very careful about how you treat me.
And Lee showed up all sorts of hilarity ensued. I’m sorry, Lee. Lee Shin Gabby’s husband, he’s worked with us for years. . Oh, I’m sorry. Uh, I’m kind of, I’m kind of overwhelmed by all these figures. Ah, those are the letters of credit. Uh, yeah. So, uh, how’d the phone call go? Any problem. I admit I got a little confused, but I handled it.
I no doubt that you did. I’m sorry that I ran out on you like that. Let me take a look at those. Maybe that’s a good idea.
I think I’ve figured out what’s wrong with me. I’ve been pushing myself with the gym lately and I think I might be a little dehydrated. Ah. Tell you what, why don’t I grab us something to drink. We can go over this together. Sounds like a clap. Thank you. More than welcome.
Well, I am going to go meet your mom. You wanna cut? Uh, actually no. I’m, I’m gonna stay here and finish my coffee and, uh, I’ll catch up with you later. Okay, good, good, good. I love you. Now I’ll do, and I love you
Can I help you? Uh, I hope so. Um, do you know the owner of the bakery? Um, let’s just say she and I are really close.
Oh, Johnny, you told Wendy about Stephanie, didn’t you? Yeah. But your father asked you not to it. It’s okay. Right? He, he knows all about it. He’s fine with it. What do you think your father’s keeping from you? I don’t know, but it, it feels a little weird. Okay. I, I have a hard time believing that Uncle Stephanie is using drugs, but you’re the one that found the vial in the office.
So what other explanation is there? Maybe whoever’s taking those drugs isn’t doing it. Volunt. What do you mean? What if one Demer brother is drugging? The other one?
I told Karen to hold out. Cole, would you mind getting that? Please? No
I guess it wasn’t important
shall get to work you.
Well disclosure, I didn’t follow you, nor did I hire someone to. I found out that you faked that call to Ariana School. I knew you were in the park because I tracked your phone. Jing one said that if I stooped to that, then I needed to let you go. And I think she’s right. I think we should end our marriage right now.
How could you not see this coming? You, you told Bell just this morning everything was quiet. Some Peterson freezing all of my assets that is not quiet. And you could imagine how much fun it was to hear it coming from her and, and not my lawyers who are charging me an arm and a leg on an hour when he faces us.
Well, you not anymore. You’re all fire. Well, uh, that might have been a little hasty. I don’t need them. I’ve got you. You do whatever it takes to stop Sloan Peterson and attracts.
So you are the owner? I am. You want a cookie? Uh, no. Actually what I want is a job You guys are hiring, right? That’s right. Um, you’re a baker. Mm-hmm. and a good one. Well, me too. Go ahead, have a cookie. I make the best damn chocolate chip cookies in the continental us. Uh, I don’t think so because I do. Mm-hmm.
actually, here have one.
You think your father is drugging? That’s ridiculous. What makes you so sure his sterling character? Stephan is his brother. He’s also his competition at Dera with dad. Business comes before family. Okay. Then what about the report from the investigator? Could have made it up? No, he didn’t have, because I was.
I was there when EJ saw the report and it said that Stephen’s fingerprints were on the vial. So if EJ bought the drugs, then how could Stephan’s fingerprints be on the vial?
This is good work. I spent so much time going over those numbers. My vision started to blow. I can see where that would happen. So did you find out what deal Gabby made with.
You mean I’ll take back my Demer shares and you’ll be free to be with Stephan after seeing him with you today. I, I now know that that’s what you really want, and I don’t wanna stand between you and your.
I am giving you the chance to walk away from our marriage, and
that woman is trying to clean me. And she will fight dirty to do it. You know, honey, I believe Bell has this bell. If it comes down to saving my money or protecting Chanel, throw me under the bus. Paul, I know. No, no, no. She’s my baby girl and she’s been through too much. I will do whatever it takes to protect.
No matter how much it costs,
you made this mm-hmm. . And if you like those, just wait until you taste my double chocolate Macarons. Mm. You used Madagascar bourbon vanilla extract. Baked them for eight minutes at 3 75. Wow. You really know your cookies, huh? Mm-hmm. . And I know a great baker when I meet one. So does that mean that I’m. I’m afraid not.
I’m confused. You just said I was a great baker. You are, but don’t need to fill out an application first.
I thought I was supposed to meet you at your place. I couldn’t wait.
Yeah, you’re right. You’re right. If Fiff Stefan’s Prince are the ones on the vial, then the, the drugs must be his. I guess I just didn’t want to believe that he could be using. Look, we all wanna help. And the best thing to do is just trust EJ to do his best for him.
Well, she, uh, really made a case that this isn’t some big conspiracy, so I guess settles it unless Nicole’s in on it apparently. Gabby holds on to Lee’s voting block of Damara shares as long as she stays married to him for six months. Lot can happen in six months.
You can hear it all. What’s six months between captains of the universe? You too know I love you. Right back at you. Gabby can’t have your cake and eat it too. What’s it gonna be?
I made a deal and I intend to keep it. I see. But I, I do have a proposal. We’re listening. We’re in this for six months. Right? Let’s at least try to be. Social. I mean, I know it’s probably too late now to do most of the stuff that you have planned for today, the feeding, the ducks, the picnic, but maybe we could go to the Vango Exhibit
I’d like that very much.
That is true. A lot can happen in six months. Mm. And at the end of those six months, are you planning on aligning yourself with Gabby to aby as close to you? I love Gabby, but family comes first. I would never betray my own brother. I feel exactly the same way.
