Summer: Thank you. Hey, stranger.

Chelsea: Summer, hey. How are you?

Summer: I’m good. God, I feel like I haven’t seen you in ages.

Chelsea: Yeah, I — I didn’t get out much for a while, crimson lights being the exception.

Summer: And the last time i did see you, I think I was, um, offering you a job at marchetti, and you turned me down flat.

Chelsea: Well, not — not you. It just wasn’t a right job for me.

Summer: I heard that you were taking some time off for some personal stuff. How — how’s that going?

Chelsea: Um, yeah, it’s been a challenge. Um, I went through a really rough patch in the fall. But the worst is behind me, and I’ve come out the other side stronger than ever.

Summer: Oh, that’s really good to hear. But, uh, you still don’t want to come work for me at marchetti?

Chelsea: No.

[ Laughs ] Um, but I am working on something new.

Billy: Hey, ash.

Ashley: Hi.

Billy: Are you alone?

Ashley: I am.

Billy: Okay. Well, I was gonna sit at the bar to work through my 10,000 thoughts going through my head, but I could use the company. Do you mind?

Ashley: Sit down. No, not at all.

Billy: [ Sighs ]

Ashley: What’s going on with you?

Billy: Oh, uh… that’s a good question, actually. We haven’t been able to catch up since you got back from paris.

Ashley: Yeah.

Billy: Why did you come back so quickly? I figured you’d be there for a few months, you know, with the opportunity to work out of the paris office.

Ashley: Right. I know. Good question. But abby’s here, and she’s going through a lot. I got my grandson — dom. So, there’s that.

Billy: Ah. I see.

Ashley: You see what? What do you see?

Billy: [ Sighs ] I mean, I heard rumors that since you’ve been back, you’ve been in contact with tucker.

Ashley: So?

Billy: I mean, what’s going on there? Are you playing an angle?

Ashley: Why would I have to be playing an angle?

Billy: Because he’s tucker mccall and there’s no other reason to interact with him.

Devon: Hi.

Tucker: Hi.

Devon: Thanks for getting here so quickly.

Tucker: Sure. I was anxious to hear what you had to say. And I know that it’s not easy for you to reach out to me.

Devon: Well, just so we’re clear, this is strictly a business discussion.

Tucker: Yeah. Fine. No father/son emotional crap.

Devon: Yeah, something like that.

Tucker: So, does this mean you’re starting to see the value in taking over mccall?

Devon: I’ve definitely been giving it a look over.

Tucker: Okay. That’s a good start.

[ Chuckles ] Uh, are you held up somewhere? Maybe I can help.

Devon: Well, actually, i found out that you took the idea of selling your company to newman enterprises first. So the notion that this is all about me and carrying on your legacy is clearly a lie, right?

It’s the most wonderful

time of the year

Ashley: Thank you.

Billy: Look, tucker mccall is bad news, okay? You know that. Everyone knows that. And I really don’t like the idea of you being sucked back into his orbit. He’s caused you a lot of pain.

Ashley: And you don’t think that I am capable of protecting myself or being smart enough to make the right decision?

Billy: No, on the contrary, i think you are the smartest person I know. But when it comes to matters of the heart, all the intelligence gets thrown out the window.

Ashley: Well, that’s true. I mean, case in point — jack reuniting with diane.

Billy: Exactly.

Ashley: Exactly, but didn’t you advocate for everybody to give her a second chance when diane came back to town?

Billy: I did. I did say something of the sort.

Ashley: But you don’t think tucker deserves the same thing.

Billy: You know why.

Ashley: No, I don’t know why.

Billy: He’s one of those guys that’s not ever going to change.

Ashley: Billy, you’re one of those guys that’s not ever going to change, and yet you constantly ask for support every time you think it’s time for you now to start, you know, cleaning up your act.

Billy: Okay, yes, I have done that many, many times. And I appreciate it every single time. But the difference is, when I am going to redeem myself or trying to change, I actually mean it. It’s not part of some elaborate scam.

Ashley: Well, I actually think that people who try to change are sincere. Whether or not they accomplish it is, of course, a different deal.

Billy: So, you think that it’s possible for tucker to change? Because — let me just be clear — I don’T. I really don’T. I think that he is perfectly fine being an agent of chaos.

Ashley: I don’t think you’re in a position to judge him, let alone be his jury and executioner.

Billy: Wow, you really are defending the guy, aren’t you?

Ashley: Actually, I’m just not cynical like you.

Billy: You have feelings for him again, don’t you? Have you not learned anything?

Summer: So, are you designing again? If so, I would love to see your sketches. You know how much I respect your work.

Chelsea: Thank you. But, no, actually, I’m trying something new.

Summer: Ooh. Exciting. What are you doing? Can you give me a little hint?

Chelsea: I — it’s kind of hard to explain. I can’t really tell you right now, but, um, it doesn’t have to do with fashion. It’s something that’s very personal to me.

Summer: Hmm. Okay. Well, I look forward to hearing more about it when you’re ready.

Chelsea: Yeah. Well, I want to share it with you when it’s worthy. Uh, but for now, I’m just hoping that this caffeine kicks in so i can get past this creative stumbling block I’m going through.

Summer: Does that usually work for you?

Chelsea: Mm… ahh! Sometimes.

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Chelsea: But really, I think it’s just that my — my personal life is impinging on my work.

Summer: Oh, I know a little something about that. I don’t think that a day goes by that there’s not some sort of family drama at jabot.

Chelsea: Mm. Well, that makes sense. I mean, your mom works with you.

Summer: Actually, um, she doesn’t anymore. I had to fire her.

Chelsea: You fired phyllis?

Summer: Well, believe me, I had cause. And honestly, the work environment has improved greatly, but my family life has definitely taken a toll and… I don’t know. It’s been — it’s been really hard. I sort of had to learn how to compartmentalize.

Chelsea: Trust me, I’ve done a lot of that. But I have realized that pushing things aside doesn’t always lead to healthy results, so just be careful.

Summer: I will. Thank you. And, um, good luck to you on your new path. I’m really excited for you.

Chelsea: I appreciate that. I’ll see you around.

Summer: Bye.

Chelsea: Bye.

[ Cellphone buzzes ]

Summer: This is summer. Wait, is there a reason why communications hasn’t handled that already? Right. Diane’s away. No, no, no, yeah. I’m just gonna get a refill, and I will be back to the office very soon.

Tucker: Well, I’d taken on a lot of debt, and so newman was prepared to buy that debt to force me to sell it to them. It’s really that simple.

Devon: Mm.

Tucker: But I would never ask you to take on a debt-ridden, uh, failing organization.

Devon: Okay. So, what’s changed?

Tucker: Um… [ Chuckles ] A benefactor came in and consolidated the debt before victoria had a chance to make her play. So now the company is in a much better spot. And you can buy it for pennies on the dollar.

Devon: Is that ’cause that’s all it’s worth? ‘Cause I honestly am getting the feeling that this is just your way of trying to dump a failing company onto the nearest sucker, who just happens to be me.

Tucker: [ Sighs ] Devon… this company is all I have had in my life for a very long time. Every thought I had, every ounce of effort I put forth was an attempt to make it something special. And even now, as it’s faltering, it’s not something I would ever just dump on someone. I’m — I’m really — I’m sorry to hear you say that ’cause that is not my intention, honestly. So, I’m gonna go.

Devon: You don’t have to go. You don’t have to go. ‘Cause if you’re telling the truth, I’m still interested in buying it. Taking over your company is an enticing offer. That’s it, I’m going on a dunkin’ run.

Phyllis: Ha! You’re right. Well, I’m glad you got back to me so soon. I really appreciate that. Right. Definitely. Let’s talk next week. You too. Ah, just crazy running into you here.

Summer: Is it crazy? ‘Cause I usually come here a couple of times a day.

Phyllis: Oh. Oh. Well, I’m glad you’re doing that. Good for you. You’re very hard-working. I’m glad you’re finding that life/work balance.

Summer: Yeah, I have a pretty good handle on that.

Phyllis: Mm. Good for you. Good for you. I’m sure it’s hard to find time with your busy schedule for harrison and kyle.

Summer: Not really. They’re the most important parts of my life.

Ashley: You know, I am just not interested in discussing my romantic entanglements with you.

Billy: Oh, my g– even hearing you say “romantic entanglements” makes me…

Ashley: Get over it.

Billy: Okay, fine. If you’re not gonna take any brotherly concern from me, what about jack?

Ashley: [ Laughs ] That’s funny.

Billy: I mean, he’s got to really not love this entanglement that you —

Ashley: Jack doesn’t have any credibility.

Billy: Why?

Ashley: Well, obviously because of his relationship with diane. I mean, he moved her in. And I never thought of a house as big as ours could feel crowded, but indeed it does.

Billy: Well, I mean, you could always move out.

Ashley: It’s the family home, which means it’s my home, and I’m not going anywhere. Thank you very much. Have you given jack any kind of grief at all for going back with diane, somebody who faked her own death?

Billy: I have decided to let jack make his own decisions. Who am I to judge?

Ashley: You are such an ass. You know that? You’re an ass.

Billy: I know. I know.

Ashley: So, you give jack a pass, but you have no problem judging me.

Billy: Ashley, you’re my sister, okay? It’s a different situation.

Ashley: Whoa! Spoken like a true chauvinist, billy. Are you aware that diane has specifically and repeatedly caused me harm? Now, granted, tucker is an egotist and he takes himself way too seriously, but your double standard is disgusting and egregious.

Billy: Okay. Maybe you have a point.

Ashley: Yeah, maybe I do.

Billy: Look, I know, okay? It’s not fair for me to judge anyone else’s messy affairs.

Ashley: What are you saying? You’re having an affair already?

[ Chuckling ] Really? What?

Billy: No, I’m not.

Ashley: What?

Billy: But, you know, I mean, there is someone that, um… look, I’m trying to be thoughtful and I’m trying to take my time and be conscientious. This, you know…

[ Sighs ]

Ashley: Very novel for you. Gosh, I can’t wait till you go public with your relationship so I can just judge the hell out of it.

Billy: Okay, and — and — and because of that right there, I just want to straight up apologize. I am very sorry if you are offended by this line of questioning.

Ashley: Yeah, you should be sorry.

Billy: Whatever you have going on with that manipulative, scheming megalomaniac… it’s none of my business.

Devon: I mean, the company is a mess.

Tucker: Thank you.

Devon: Yeah. Look, I know you put your heart and soul into it, but it just seems like it’s a big collection of a bunch of unrelated divisions that were either acquired or developed on a whim, without any real forethought.

Tucker: [ Chuckles ] Thanks.

Devon: It’s true.

Tucker: Actually, several times in the last few years, I’ve considered restoring the core divisions and concentrating on them and their strengths, namely music and entertainment.

Devon: Well, that sounds like a great idea. Why don’t you do that?

Tucker: Well, ’cause I’m a — I’m a collector. It’s part of my dna. I just got to have more, more more. I see a shiny object, I just have to have it.

Devon: Mm.

Tucker: It’s one of my many weaknesses.

Devon: Well, I think that you’re right about music and entertainment because that’s where your assets are the strongest and that’s where your staff is the most knowledgeable. And they’ve already made a good reputation in the industry, so it’s good infrastructure.

Tucker: The infrastructure’s good.

[ Chuckles ]

Devon: The only thing that’s a little outdated is your distribution. It’s a little 20th-century.

Tucker: Yeah, except there’s a big demand for old stuff right now — vinyl, cds, even cassettes.

Devon: Yeah, that’s true. I was thinking that you could possibly capitalize on a niche market.

Tucker: Mm-hmm. So, what would you do with the less successful divisions? Just scrap them?

Devon: No, I wouldn’t do that at first. I would — I would want to take a look at what you have and see how the divisions could actually work with each other. Like, you have this random trucking company out of san antonio.

Tucker: Yeah. Did I tell you how I bought that one?

Devon: No.

Tucker: So, one of their drivers cut me off on the interstate, and the truck had one of those bumper stickers, you know, “how is my driving? Call 1-800…”

Devon: Yeah.

Tucker: So I called [Laughs] Bought the company, and fired the driver.

Devon: Okay. Well, we’re not gonna be doing anything like that moving forward.

Tucker: Okay, good. Yeah.

Devon: So, my thought was we can use the trucking company for artists when they go on tours, to haul everything.

Tucker: That’s brilliant.

Devon: Yeah?

Tucker: Seriously. Yeah. That’s brilliant. And you could use the media division to stream those concerts. There you go. There’s more revenue.

Devon: That’s not a bad idea at all. Yeah, I can see how this could work.

Tucker: Absolutely. See? Well, look, we’re working well together already.

Devon: Hmm. Unless you treat dandruff regularly,

Tucker: Honestly, devon, i have faith that you and I can finally find some common ground, and maybe mccall unlimited is the way.

Devon: Well, I don’t know how you figure me buying your company is gonna help with us.

Tucker: Well, you buy the company and hire me to work for you.

Devon: I’m not gonna do that.

Tucker: Why not?

Devon: What do you mean?

Tucker: Well, who knows this company better than me? I mean, look, we’re already on the same page, obviously. So, with your vision and my, um, uh, institutional knowledge, so to speak, we can’t lose.

Devon: No, we can lose.

Tucker: Well, but we’re not gonna lose. Trust me. Hell, I could just be the advisor to the ceo.

Devon: [ Chuckling ] Advisor. Alright, so, let me make sure I’m clear on all this. You are willing to sell me the company that you created and then take a smaller role to try and fix our relationship?

Tucker: Absolutely.

Devon: Hmm.

Phyllis: Okay, well, um, I’ll let you be on your way, so…

Summer: Thanks.

Phyllis: Oh! Hey, summer, I got a gift for harrison.

Summer: Oh. That’s nice of you.

Summer: Yeah. When I saw it in the window, it just screamed harrison. It was so cute. So — I don’t know — maybe i can bring it by or — you know, scratch that. I want to avoid jack and diane, so I’m not gonna bring it by. Maybe I’ll have it delivered or s– wait. They went on a trip, right?

Summer: Um…yeah. I-I don’t think that they’ll be back for a while.

Phyllis: Oh! Oh, it’s an extended vacation.

Summer: No, but you can drop harrison’s gift off anytime, mom.

Phyllis: Okay. Well, that seems fun. Where’d they go? Dubai? Someplace exotic?

Summer: Are you seriously fishing for information right now?

Phyllis: Why would I care about them?

Summer: Yeah, that’s the big question. Why do you care about them?

Phyllis: Ugh.

Summer: I mean, but you seem awfully curious about their whereabouts.

Phyllis: Okay, summer. I couldn’t care less about jack and diane.

Summer: I don’t buy it, mom. And honestly I just wish that you would stop using harrison in your plots for revenge against diane. It’s insulting.

Phyllis: I got a gift for harrison.

Summer: Did you? Really?

[ Scoffs ] Look, I-I don’t know where jack and diane are, but even if i did, I wouldn’t tell you.

Phyllis: Summer —

Summer: No, mom. I’m serious. I don’t want any part of any of your schemes against diane. Just leave her alone already.

Phyllis: Summer.

Ashley: So, it somewhat appears that your love life is on track, I guess. What about your work life? Do you have a job?

Billy: Funny you should ask that, actually. Jack offered me a job. He asked me to come back to jabot.

Ashley: No. Wait, he asked you to come back and you’re considering it? You can’t do that. It’s always been a disaster, billy. I mean, think about this.

Billy: Ashley, look at me. I’m a changed man.

Ashley: [ Laughing ] Oh! So, you think that people are capable of adjusting their behavior and becoming functioning members of society.

Billy: I do believe some people are capable of that.

Ashley: Well, then you must believe that there’s hope for tucker.

Billy: [ Sighs ] Look, maybe — just maybe — tucker could prove me wrong. And then again, maybe I’ll prove jack and you and everyone else who cares about me wrong, too, that I am capable of change. And I have to say, this relationship is unique. It’s really, you know, helped me see things in a different light, put my priorities straight. I don’t want to take things for granted, like family. So, yeah, I want to work with my family at the company that our father built.

Ashley: Sounds like you’re taking the job.

Billy: Jack, it’s me. Give me a call when you get a chance. I want to talk about this proposal.

Diane: [ Sighs ] Jack? Jack? Where are you? I’m steve.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Diane: “Off to find you the best dinner in a 50-mile radius. Open a great bottle of wine. I love you.” Mmm. Hmm.

[ Sighs ]

[ Knock on door ]

Diane: Ah! Nice try, jack, but you know it’s bad luck to see the bride. Now, just go back to the hotel, and I’ll see you when it’s time. Kyle!

Kyle: Can I come in? I come bearing gifts.

Diane: Oh, of course!

Kyle: I wasn’t sure if there was a superstition about the son of the bride.

Diane: [ Laughs, smooches ] Get in here quick. I wouldn’t put it past your father to be out there in the woods trying to catch a glimpse of me in this dress.

Kyle: Dad is tending to some last-minute details. He said something about releasing a thousand doves at the end of the ceremony. Is that true?

Diane: Oh, it’s — it’s just an idea I had. I had no idea he could make it happen.

[ Laughs ] Gosh, I love that man.

Kyle: I know. You’re glowing, you know?

Diane: I am?

Kyle: I’ve never seen you this happy.

Diane: Good — because I love feeling this way. It’s like a dream come true.

Kyle: Mm. For me, too. My mother and father finally coming together. I can’t tell you how many nights I wished for exactly this. It’s everything I’ve always wanted. It’s like the perfect ending to a fairy tale that got pretty rough when I was young.

Diane: Oh, kyle, I am so sorry.

Kyle: Mom, mom, mom, mom. There’s no need. If it weren’t for that pain, i wouldn’t be experiencing this level of happiness. Today is a gift.

Diane: Yeah.

Kyle: And speaking of gifts…

Diane: Oh, that’s so sweet. You brought me something.

Kyle: This is from your groom. Dad had me deliver it because you’re so adamant about not seeing him today.

Diane: [ Gasps ] Oh, it’s amazing. Will — will you help me put it on?

Kyle: Of course.

Diane: Okay. Here, wait. Oh, gosh, I love it.

Kyle: Alright. Dad had it made especially for you.

Diane: Ahh.

[ Sighs ] It’s perfect.

Kyle: You’re perfect, mom.

Diane: Aww.

Summer: Oh, don’t wrinkle the bride’s dress.

[ Laughter ] Um, could I get a word with the bride? Oh, my gosh, that necklace. Diane, you look beautiful.

Diane: Thank you, summer.

Kyle: Mm. I’m going to go check on harrison, the most handsome ring bearer there ever was.

[ Laughter ]

Diane: Aww.

Kyle: See you, babe.

Diane: [ Sighs heavily ]

Summer: Diane, I have some things to say to you.

Diane: Summer, I know that you have complicated feelings about me getting married to jack, but I promise you —

Summer: You’re like a mother to me, the mother that phyllis could never be.

Diane: Oh, summer. That’s such a nice thing to say.

Summer: You’ve shown me what a mother’s love can do. And it hurts to know that my own mother can’t even come close to that.

Diane: Oh, honey, I am so sorry that phyllis hasn’t been there for you. But I’m here for you. Summer, call me mom. Aww!

Traci: Oh! Look, there’s so much love on a day like this.

Diane: Hi, traci.

Traci: Congratulations. I brought champagne…

Diane: Oh!

Traci: …To toast to your wonderful wedding.

Summer: Oh, none for me. I’ve got to go touch up my make-up.

Diane: Oh. Mwah! Thank you.

Traci: Alright. Jack tried to bribe me into letting him in to be a part of this toast, but I told him, “unh-unh-unh, some traditions have to remain intact.” Here you go.

Diane: Ah. Thank you, traci.

Traci: Nothing is going to spoil this wonderful day. Everything is going to be just perfect. And look at that necklace. It’s lovely.

Diane: Oh, well, thank you.

[ Both laugh ]

Traci: You’re going to make the most beautiful bride. And jack is going to be the handsomest groom. Oh! As a wedding gift, I am going to write a novel about your inspirational romance.

Diane: Really?

Traci: My agent has already sold it in just a three-line pitch. In fact, we also have optioned it to hollywood, and they’re going to make it into a big movie. I’m going to call it “the return of the perfect woman.”

Diane: Oh, I love it!

Traci: Cheers!

Diane: Cheers!

[ Both laugh ]

Ashley: Not so fast.

I gotta good feeling

about this, yeah

Diane: Ashley, I hope we can set aside our differences today.

Ashley: I have no intention of faking anything today. I have nothing but love in my heart. I woke up and I said to myself, “you know, diane really has changed.” And I’m so sorry. I’ve been so unfair to you. And I apologize for making your life so difficult since you’ve returned to genoa city.

Diane: Oh, thank you! We’re going to be sisters!

Traci: Oh, group hug!

Diane: Yes, group hug! Mwah! You know what? I love jack, but I am going to love being an abbott.

Traci: And you are going to fit right in.

Ashley: And you have taught us so much about what it is to change and be a better person. I love you, diane.

Diane: Oh, thank you, ashley. Okay, I know it’s last minute, but it would mean so much to me — and I know it’d mean a lot to jack, too — if you could see it in your heart to stand by my side and be my maid of honor.

Ashley: Oh, nothing could make me happier.

Diane: Oh!

Traci: Oh! It’s time for a toast.

Ashley: Thank you.

Traci: To diane joining the abbott family.

Ashley: And to the most beautiful, beautiful wedding ever.

Traci: Cheers!

Diane: Cheers.

Traci: [ Laughs ] Mm! Look at the time. The horse-drawn carriage is gonna be here any moment to take you down to the lake. We’re gonna let you go ahead and finish getting ready.

Ashley: We’ll see you there.

Diane: Thank you both so much for accepting me into your family. Ashley, could you stay and help me with — this isn’t mine, is it? Is it nikki’s?

[ Pounding on door ]

[ Sighs ] Jack, I’ve told you — no sneak peeks. I’ll see you at the altar.

[ Pounding on door ]

[ Sighs ] You won’t give up, will you? Okay. One quick glance. Like traci said, nothing can ruin this day. It’s our time. Jack?

[ Gasps ]

Diane: [ Gasping ]

[ Breathing heavily ]

[ Knock on door ]

Chelsea: Come on in, billy. It’s open.

Billy: How’d you know it was me?

Chelsea: You have a very distinctive knock.

[ Door closes ]

Billy: Well, thank you for noticing. Been working on it for years. Want to go downstairs and grab a coffee or something?

Chelsea: I actually was just down there, and I’m kind of in a groove here, so I don’t want to stop.

Billy: Oh, yeah. Don’t want to disrupt that.

Chelsea: Never. I was stuck earlier, but now i think I got my groove back.

Billy: Good to see you in the flow.

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] Yeah. Yesterday, there were a lot of creative ups and downs. You know, I was feeling kind of low. I was feeling like all my ideas were bad, feeling like a failure.

Billy: No, don’t do that. Don’t start thinking about yourself that way.

Chelsea: Well, they’re my feelings. Don’t try to talk me out of them.

Billy: Got it. Yeah. Feel like I’m doing that a lot today — telling other people how to feel.

Chelsea: Well, then, knock it off.

Billy: Work in progress.

Chelsea: So, I was feeling stuck and I went downstairs and I saw something that triggered about 20 ideas. I realized I’ve been thinking about the game in a specific way that’s too limited, when in reality, the world is full of pain and conflict everywhere.

Billy: That sounds ominous. What did you see?

Chelsea: Well, I don’t want to get into specifics, but i just witnessed something that reminded me that there is a lot of pain and conflict and tension among families, amongst people who love each other a lot. They don’t know how to navigate it. And you see this everywhere. I mean, you see it in coffee shops, at the park. You see it at work. The world is full of complicated human interaction.

Billy: Sounds a little overwhelming.

Chelsea: Well, I think it’s an opportunity. You know, I think this game can really be a way for people to figure out how to dissect all sorts of human relationships.

Billy: Hmm. Yeah. No, I see it.

Chelsea: And, I mean, you know, why do video games have to be all about slaying dragons and — and blasting aliens? What if it is that, you know, our players here, um — you know, they have to navigate different personalities and that’s how they go further in the game?

Billy: Okay, but you still get to blast aliens, correct?

Chelsea: Well, of course. You have to have some blasting.

Billy: Yeah.

Chelsea: Yeah. There has to be some action element to it. But I feel like the better the player is at the interpersonal stuff, the easier it is. If they’re not good at the interpersonal stuff, then it’s next to impossible.

Billy: I love it.

Chelsea: Yeah?

Billy: Yes.

Chelsea: I mean, I really owe it all to daniel. I mean, he has this platform, and he’s giving me the tools to help people feel less alone.

Billy: Mm.

Chelsea: I’m really excited about it. I want to change people’s lives. This cough.

[Sfx: Coughs]

Billy: I think it’s great. I really think you’re onto something. And you know what? I’ve played my fair share of video games in the past, you know, with reed and johnny and katie, so I know what I’m talking about.

Chelsea: [ Chuckles ]

Billy: I think daniel’s lucky to have you playing in his sandbox. And you’re gonna crush it.

Chelsea: Thank you, billy.

Billy: No, really. I’m inspired. You know, you got me excited about my next endeavor.

Chelsea: Your next endeavor? Are you going back to jabot? Are you gonna accept jack’s offer?

Billy: I haven’t talked to him yet, but I feel like I’ve made my decision. It feels like the right place and the right time. You know, I want to bring fresh, new ideas.

Chelsea: Wow. I mean, you were — you were kind of in a similar spot last year with chancellor.

Billy: Yeah, no, I see it differently. I wasn’t all that excited about chancellor. I mean, really, I was there to support lily. And I did my best, but this just feels different, you know? I really — I really feel like i can make a difference in my family company and show up with my entrepreneurial spirit and energy and, you know, do it the way my dad did.

Chelsea: It’s fun to see you so enthusiastic about something.

Billy: You mean other than you.

Chelsea: [ Laughs ] No, it’s — it’s inspiring that we’re both excited about our futures, that we can take control and create a life with meaning and purpose. And we’re both doing it for the right reasons this time.

Phyllis: Texting summer?

Kyle: No. Something else.

Phyllis: Hmm. Alright, well, that’s good to know, that she didn’t get on the phone and text you immediately after I saw her saying what a monster I am.

Kyle: Well, she’d never say that, phyllis. She might think it, but she wouldn’t say it.

[ Chuckles ]

Phyllis: Mm.

Kyle: Okay, I think she just needs some time. I’m confident the two of you will work out your differences.

Phyllis: I’m glad you’re confident. I myself am hopeless.

Kyle: Phyllis, I’d love to stay and talk to you about this — and we should sometime — but I have to get to the office.

Phyllis: Oh, kyle! Your phone!

[ Telephone ringing ]

Diane: Hello? Hello? Jack? Jeremy, is that you?

Phyllis: [ Sighs ]
