Billy: I love this.

Chelsea: Yeah?

Billy: It’s like a whole separate world.

Chelsea: Yeah. And each area of concern for our hero is a different style.

Billy: Yeah, family, work, romance. I get it. It’s all here.

Chelsea: Right. Right. So, part of the challenge is balancing the three.

Billy: And that depends on the stage in the life of the hero.

Chelsea: Yep.

Billy: It’s — it’s great.

Chelsea: Yes!

Billy: You’re really onto something.

Chelsea: Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.

[ Laughs ]

[ Knock on door ]

Chloe: Chelsea, are you home?

Chelsea: Oh.

[ Both chuckle ]

[ Clears throat ]

[ Door opens ] Hi! This is a surprise!

Chloe: Hi. Yeah. Sorry for just showing up, but i was in the neighborhood, and i just wanted to check in and see how you were doing.

Chelsea: Yeah. I’m good. Well, come on in.

Chloe: Okay. Thanks.

Billy: Hey, chloe.

Chloe: Hi. Um, look who’s here. I — I’m so sorry. I didn’t realize that you had company. Is this a bad time?

Nikki: I was so happy to get your invitation. We haven’t been able to catch up in a while.

Summer: I know. That’s my fault. Um, things have been really hectic lately.

Nikki: Hectic? What’s bothering you, honey? Or do I already know?

Summer: It’s — it’s dad and the situation with sally.

Nikki: That makes two of us. I don’t understand why he wants to get mixed up with a person whose life is so chaotic. I mean, what does he see in her? Everything else in the rest of his life is great. But leave it to sally spectra to bring on the trouble.

Summer: Especially now, with a baby on the way.

Nikki: Baby? What baby?

Nick: So, I basically laid down the law with summer. I told her she needs to have an open mind about our relationship.

Sally: I hate to cause friction between you and your daughter.

Nick: Ah, don’t worry about it. She and I are crazy close. We’re strong enough to get through it.

Sally: Well, I don’t doubt that. Must be nice to be so strong.

Nick: It is a heavy burden at times.

Sally: Mm-hmm, of course it is.

[ Both chuckle ] I could definitely use some of that strength. I really need to get my life together.

Nick: What do you mean?

Sally: Well, I was just waiting in limbo for so long to, you know, tell adam about the baby. And now that I have, I need to focus on other things in my life, like my career. You know, chloe and I are prepping for a follow-up meeting with jill. Of course, we’re just — you know, it’s more about jill’s schedule right now, unless victor decides to tank us again.

Nick: Don’t you worry about that. I’m planning on using my legendary strength to make sure he stays the hell out of that.

Sally: Well, thank you.

Nick: It would be nice to lock in a contract with chancellor-winters, though.

Sally: Oh, yeah. They would be a huge client. I mean, they have tons of offices and restaurants and hotels, all kinds of properties that could use interior design. And I really actually want to tour some of them so I could start to have an idea about, like, the function, the colors, the textures. That way, chloe and I have specific recommendations we can give to jill and impress her all over again.

Nick: That’s excellent thinking. Where are all these properties? And would you like to use the newman jet to get to them?

Sally: [ Laughs ] Yeah, I’m sure that would go over really big with victoria.

Nick: I’m the coo. I can reserve the jet whenever the hell I want.

Sally: Well, that is very generous of you. I really appreciate the gesture. But no thank you. We are gonna fly commercial.

Nick: Are you sure?

Sally: Yeah. I mean, our research has absolutely nothing to do with newman, so we’re not entitled to the newman perks, and that includes riding on a fancy corporate jet, especially from you. I mean, our… we’re not in that stage of our relationship yet.

Nick: Fair enough.

Adam: Uh, hope I’m not interrupting.

Sally: Uh, adam, we were actually having a private conversation.

Adam: Ah, okay. Well, this will just take a few minutes of your time. Um, I have not been able to stop thinking about the baby, and i have a proposition for you, one that I hope you will seriously consider.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] I’m gonna get out of here.

Chelsea: Well, it was sweet of you to stop by.

Chloe: Well, please do not leave on my account.

Billy: No, no, it’s okay. I don’t want to overstay my welcome.

Chelsea: You could never overstay your welcome. But since chloe’s here…

Billy: I got errands to do. I’m gonna pop downstairs, grab a coffee, and then go do what I need to do.

Chelsea: Oh.

Billy: Good to see you.

Chloe: You too.

Billy: You’re amazing. I’ll, uh — I’ll be in touch.

Chelsea: Okay.

Billy: Okay.

[ Sighs ]

Sally: Well, what exactly are you suggesting?

Adam: Um, look, I just want to make things as easy as I can for you.

Sally: In what sense?

Adam: Look [Sighs] It’s important that you and our child are settled and you’re comfortable from the very beginning, so… I would like to buy you a house.

Sally: A house?

Adam: Yeah. I mean, you weren’t planning on staying in this hotel forever, were you?

Sally: Well, no. I mean, obviously, I would like more room. I just haven’t gotten around to, you know, beginning the process, calling realtors, looking at properties.

Adam: Yeah, yeah, I mean, i understand it’s the beginning stages. Feels like you have all the time in the world, but, you know, time is gonna start flying by before you know it. I mean, doesn’t it make sense to find a house and move in and get ready before the baby arrives? I mean, you could use your design skills to put your own stamp on it.

Sally: [ Sighs ] Adam —

Adam: Please let me do this for you. I know your folks moved around a lot when you were a kid and they never gave you a place to call home. But you and our child — you can have a nursery to read bedtime stories. You can have a yard to play in, a wall with pictures and happy memories. You know, everything that you dreamed of as a child. I want to help make that happen.

Nikki: Sally is pregnant? Oh, my god. I had no idea.

Summer: Yes, sally is having a baby, but it’s not dad’S. It’s adam’S.

Nikki: [ Gasps ] Hallelujah! No. No, no, this is still a mess.

Summer: It’s what she does best.

Nikki: I have seen nicholas almost every day at the office, and he hasn’t said anything. And I’ll bet victor doesn’t know. He would have said something.

Summer: Um, here’s the thing, grandma. I know that it’s a lot to ask, but could you please not tell grandpa about this? At least, until dad or adam gets a chance to tell him.

Nikki: That he’s having another grandchild? I-I don’t know. I mean, for me to know and not tell him…

Summer: I know. I know. I know. It was really unfair for me to dump all of this on you, but i just — I needed to talk to somebody who would be just as horrified as I am, but the thing is, if grandpa confronts dad about this before he’s ready, it’s gonna cause this huge conflict. And nobody wants that, right?

Nikki: Wow. As rationalizations go, that’s — that’s a bit of a stretch, summer. But…alright. For the sake of the baby. It’s not healthy to have stress during pregnancy.

Summer: Thank you.

Nikki: I wish that nicholas would tell victor already, but he’s probably too embarrassed and upset, doesn’t want to talk about it.

Summer: This is the thing, grandma. He’s not wallowing in self-pity. Dad is actually still seeing sally.

Nikki: They’re not breaking up?

Summer: [ Exhales sharply ] I guess this thing with adam was a one-time occasion and sally doesn’t have any desire to get back together with him.

Nikki: Oh, no, sure. Why should she? She can have nicholas.

Summer: I actually think that I’m the most upset about all of this. And I kind of blew up at sally. I told her how selfish I thought she was being and how she’s using my dad. And then dad came over and told me how wrong I was and how this hasn’t changed his feelings for sally at all.

Nikki: Unbelievable. He is too noble for his own good.

Summer: I know, right? It’s like he can’t see what’s going on, and it kills me.

Nikki: Trust me. I know exactly how you feel.

Summer: I wish that this could all work out for dad. I really do but when I play it out in my head, there’s really only one word that could sum it up.

Nikki: “Disaster.” I mean, how can he think that they can stay together when she is having his brother’s child? And I can only imagine what adam thinks about all of this.

[ Sighs ] If only there were a way that nicholas could walk away now, before it gets more complicated.

Summer: Maybe there is.

…I’m over 45.

Nikki: I would dearly love to get nicholas out of this, but i worry that any kind of maneuver would backfire. I mean, in the past, whenever i told him I had issues with the woman in his life, he just digs in his heels. I mean, if he feels so strongly about sally, in spite of this situation, I think it’s gonna be very hard to change his mind.

Summer: I agree. But what if something in their relationship were to drastically change and he realized that it would be better to end it sooner rather than later?

Nikki: Change how?

Summer: Like if sally fell back in love with adam.

Nikki: Okay. And then what?

Summer: Sally was heartbroken when adam dumped her. I mean, that’s the reason why she glommed on to dad in the first place. And we all know that adam’s not over her. So, maybe deep down, she still cares for him, too.

Nikki: I wouldn’t doubt that.

Summer: So, if I could pull this off, it would be sort of a service to two people who belong together.

Nikki: Oh, my god, yes. I mean, that would be ideal. But there are two obstacles that you need to consider.

Summer: What are they?

Nikki: Whatever lingering feelings sally may have for adam, she has decided to keep him at arm’s length. So that tells me that her walls are up pretty high.

Summer: Walls can be climbed. You just have to have the right tools and motivation. What’s the other one?

Nikki: No one is more charming than your father when he is infatuated with someone. So it’s unlikely that adam would be able to win her heart without a lot of help and a whole lot of luck.

Sally: Adam, your offer is very generous, but… I’m — I’m gonna have to say no.

Adam: Well, I’m sorry to hear that.

Nick: This is what she was worried about, you overstepping.

Adam: Uh, no, I was just trying to provide for my child and his or her mother. It’s what any decent person would do.

Sally: Okay, you know what? You actually are both just thinking a little bit too big today, too grandiose, and worse yet, you’re actually thinking for me.

Nick: No, no, no, sally, that’s not —

Sally: No, hey, look, I don’t hold it against you — really. I know you’re both trying to be supportive, and you’re actually being very sweet in your own way, but I would like to make my own decisions about how I travel and where I live and, you know, everything else in my life. In fact, I actually insist on it, so… anyway, if you guys will excuse me, I-I really have work to do.

Chelsea: Lemon?

Chloe: Um, no.

Chelsea: Sugar?

Chloe: I’m good. Though I do appreciate you being such a gracious host when i clearly interrupted something when I showed up.

Chelsea: What are you talking about?

Chloe: The second I walked in, I picked up on a very strong vibe.

Chelsea: A vibe?

Chloe: Yeah. Between you and billy. You were all flushed. You’ve never been a very big blusher.

Chelsea: What? No, that’s — no. Um, billy and I were excited because we were talking about the new video game idea.

Chloe: Oh, yeah. That’s what got you all flustered.

Chelsea: Chloe! It’s true.

Chloe: You can be honest with me. There’s no judgment. Is there something going on with you and billy?

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] I honestly don’t know how to define it. And I don’t know if I want to. There are these feelings that have been growing between us. Strong feelings.

[ Sighs ] And I think it’s taken us both by surprise.

Billy: You know what? Make it a double. Gonna live life dangerously.

Sharon: I’ve heard that about you.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] My secret’s out.

Sharon: I noticed that you came from the direction of chelsea’s place. Is she well?

Billy: She is. She’s very well, actually. She’s working on a new project.

Sharon: Oh, really?

Billy: Have you heard of, uh, what daniel romalotti’s putting together?

Sharon: The gaming platform. Yeah, that sounds really intriguing.

Billy: Yeah, it is. She, uh — she pitched him an idea, and he’s looking into developing it.

Sharon: Oh, wow! Well, that sounds wonderful. I’m sure that’ll give her a boost.

Billy: Yeah, definitely. Among other things.

Sharon: Yeah? Like what? The two of you? Having diabetes can raise a lot of questions.

Summer: Thank you for lunch.

Nikki: Oh, you are so welcome.

Sally: Hello.

Nikki: Well, sally. What a coincidence. Summer was just telling me your big news.

Summer: Oh, but don’t worry. My grandma will keep it in the circle of trust.

Nikki: Oh, yes. For the baby’s sake. Frankly, uh, it was not news that I expected.

Sally: Yeah, I’m sure it wasn’T. I was caught off guard myself.

Nikki: Well, I have so many things to say, but I would have no idea where to begin.

Sally: It’s okay. I have a feeling I know what you’re thinking.

Nikki: Good. That saves us both some time. I have to be leaving. Summer, darling, I will see you later.

Summer: Bye, grandma. Thank you again for meeting me.

Nikki: Of course.

Sally: [ Sighs heavily ]

Summer: Are you, um, on your own?

Sally: Uh, no. I’m meeting chloe in a little bit, but I just thought I’d get some work done.

Summer: Well, hey, um, why don’t I stay and you join me?

Sally: [ Sighs ] Why? So you can go on more about what a tramp and a chaotic mess I am?

Summer: So I can apologize.

Billy: You know, just to be clear, I’m not ignoring the advice you gave me earlier about, you know, what could be potentially developing between chelsea and me. I’m on board. Slow and steady, proceed with caution, all of that. And she’s, you know, talking to her therapist throughout this whole time, so she’s on top of it.

Sharon: Well, I’m relieved to hear that because chelsea needs to navigate this very carefully for herself and for your sake, for connor and johnny and katie.

Billy: I agree. We’re not an island. And if — if we take this relationship to the next level, it’s gonna affect the people we love. And most importantly, we’ve got to make sure that the kids are okay with it.

Sharon: You know, I didn’t mean to sound negative.

Billy: No, no, no, no. I appreciate everything you do for us — really. And I respect your professionalism. I know you only want what’s best for us.

Sharon: I really do. And my opinion doesn’t just come from my training. I’ve been in a similar situation myself. After I had my breakdown, I clung to adam. And what we experienced, the things that he did for me — it created a very intense bond between us. That didn’t mean that we were supposed to be together. But for a while there, the emotional lines were very blurred for me and it was hard to let go of him, even though i knew that was what was best for both of us. So, the last thing that I would want to see happen is for chelsea or you to go through that kind of pain.

Chloe: Billy saved your life. And not like “thanks for the help, you’re a life-saver” kind of way. I mean — I mean he actually saved your life. So I can understand why the two of you have developed some feelings for each other.

Chelsea: Yeah. And he’s been there for me every single day since. An incredible source of comfort. But this isn’t just gratitude. He — he makes me hopeful. He makes me excited about the future. And I feel like I can be myself around him, knowing that whatever I say, he understands.

Chloe: Look, I’m really glad that he can be that person for you. I am, but…you know, you and billy were together years ago.

Chelsea: Mm. We were engaged.

Chloe: Yeah, I know, um… but you were both coming off of tragedies. You know, you — you found each other. You found strength in each other. And things ended badly. And if I could be frank, I think it’s because you didn’t love billy with your entire heart and soul.

Chelsea: You’re right. Back then, I thought adam was the love of my life, and i thought I had lost him forever. I wasn’t over him, not by a long shot.

Chloe: So, as incredible as billy has been with you, I have to ask, as your friend — is it really what you think it is? (Vo) oh look! Glorious progresso soup.

“The young and the restless”

will continue. Not flossing well?

Summer: Look, sally, the last time I saw you, I was really upset and I crossed some lines. What I said to you was cruel and wrong and just plain mean. And I’m sorry.

Sally: Thank you.

Summer: Now that I’ve had time to cool down, I’ve realized that I’ve got to just accept that you’re an important part of my dad’s life. And if that’s the case, then i need to find a way for you and i to get along. And, look, I’m not saying that it’s gonna be easy or that we’re gonna be besties anytime soon, but I have no interest in an ongoing battle that’s just gonna hurt all of us.

Sally: Yeah. I mean, I would love to find a way to, you know, make things work. And since you are extending yourself, I will meet you halfway.

Summer: I appreciate that.

Sally: Look, I-I know that this must have been really jarring for you. And I know that you just want to protect your father.

Summer: I can’t help but want to look out for him. And it brings me to a question that I’ve been wondering about, if you don’t mind me asking.

Sally: Go ahead.

Summer: How is adam taking the news?

Sally: I think he’s excited to be a father again.

Summer: Mm. I figured he would be. But what I meant is, um, how is he handling that you and my dad are gonna stay together? I assume he’s not thrilled.

Sally: That’s a safe assumption.

Summer: He probably feels like he should be the one by your side right now?

Sally: Yeah. Yeah, I-I think that’s what he wants.

Summer: The thing about adam is he can be relentless when he wants something.

Sally: [ Chuckles ]

Adam: Look, I asked you to stay because we obviously need to find a way to navigate this situation.

Nick: Agreed.

Adam: Mm-hmm. You know, it’s like we get on the same page, we start to understand each other, and then we will clash over something and we end up right back where we started.

Nick: Well, it’s not always my fault, adam.

Adam: Okay. Nor is it mine. Look, it’s frustrating for us, but it’s not good for sally. We don’t want to aggravate her in the condition that she’s in. She won’t stand for it.

Nick: Well, I can’t argue with any of that.

Adam: Okay. Well, the reality is I’m gonna be a part of this baby’s life — and sally’s — and you intend to be just as involved. So, you know, where does that leave us?

Nick: We’re just brothers who don’t agree on much…except we both care for this woman. She shouldn’t have to deal with our issues. So, yeah, we need to come up with some common ground.

Adam: And how do you propose we do that?

Nick: I don’t know. But I know we’re both capable. So, if we both make a good-faith effort, we should be able to come up with something.

Nikki: Thank you both for coming.

Michael: Oh, it was no trouble at all, nikki.

Nikki: Um, there’s tea, if you’d like a cup, or if you’d like something else?

Lauren: Oh, no. Tea is wonderful. Thank you.

Nikki: Help yourself.

Lauren: Thanks, darling. Um, I’m assuming that we’re here to get our assignments for the gala.

Michael: Ah!

Nikki: Well, yes, as vice chair, I will be meeting privately with everyone on the planning committee.

Michael: Oh, I’m gonna enjoy being part of this, seeing how it all comes together instead of just showing up the night of in a tux.

Lauren: You see, my darling, how much fun you’d have if you were retired?

Nikki: Well, I have to say, after all the charity work I’ve done over the years, this particular event really has so much meaning.

Lauren: Mm-hmm. Well, it’s our town’s bicentennial celebration. I mean, 200 years since the founding of genoa city.

Michael: Ah. How time flies.

Nikki: Yes, it does. And the gala is gonna be here before we know it.

Michael: Alright, nikki, we’re at your service. Put us to work.

Lauren: Yep. What is it this year? Do you want marketing, pr, ticket sales, silent auction?

Nikki: Well, I thought you might enjoy a change of pace. I was hoping the two of you could work as a team, handling the catering, signing off on the menu, the signature cocktails, directing the chef and the head of the waitstaff.

Lauren: Oh, this sounds like fun.

Nikki: Yeah, I think it will be.

Michael: I will happily taste every dish, including dessert.

Lauren: And thank goodness i have a staff of tailors who will be taking out his pants afterwards.

Nikki: Ah, good idea. Well, we have been working on quite the guest list.

Lauren: Oh, I don’t think i told you. It’s a masked ball.

Michael: Oh! Elegant mask, formal attire, that kind of look?

Nikki: Exactly.

Lauren: Yes.

Michael: Alright.

Lauren: Oh, my goodness. Do you remember that costume ball we did?

Nikki: Ah!

Lauren: I mean, how many years ago was that?

Nikki: Oh, it’s been a long time, but I remember it like it was yesterday.

Lauren: And katherine was queen of hearts…

Nikki: Oh, yes.

Lauren: …And rex the mad hatter. And I was marie antoinette.

Michael: Ooh la la. Sounds very lavish.

Lauren: Like you wouldn’t believe.

Michael: Who else was there?

Lauren: [ Laughs ] Uh, christine was the blond bombshell.

Nikki: Ohh, yes.

Lauren: And jack, you know, prince charming. Hello? Hello?

Michael: Of course. Of course he was. And victor was…?

Lauren: Roman conqueror.

Nikki: Absolutely.

Michael: Very apropos.

Lauren: Oh, ashley abbott was a stunning scheherazade, and jill made quite a spectacle, arriving as cleopatra with two half-naked, very hot men who proceeded to fan her all night with very large ostrich feathers.

Nikki: I remember. Just know that this year’s event will be more toned down.

Lauren: [ Laughs ]

Michael: Aw.

Lauren: Just a little. Just a little. Just a tad.

Nikki: So, michael, while i have you here, I’d love to hear your take on tucker mccall. What’s happening with him and his company?

Michael: Ahh. We were having so much fun reminiscing and party planning.

Nikki: Yes, we were. But now I have some questions about him and his business. So, I’m looking to you for some answers. Hi, I’m jason and I’ve lost 202 pounds on golo.

Sally: Well, all things considered, adam is handling the situation pretty well. You know, he knows we’ll be parents together and that’s it, and pushing for more would alienate me, which would make it difficult to function in our child’s best interest. And neither of us want to be those parents. So, the short answer is, yeah, adam is behaving himself.

Summer: Good. I’m glad to hear that his priorities are in order. But still, it’s got to be hard for you.

Sally: You know, I just have to say that your interest and concern is very different than it was the other day.

Summer: Like I said, i just —

Sally: Yeah, you’re protective of nick. Totally makes sense. But still, it’s just really abrupt. I can’t help wondering if there’s more to your sudden change of heart.

Adam: Boy, I never would have thought that this would be the thing that would force us to be more harmonious.

Nick: Well, this is where we are, adam.

Adam: We have more in common than either one of us is willing to admit. I mean, just the fact that victor is our father, for one. There’s few people on the planet that can appreciate the complexities that go along with that.

Nick: [ Chuckles ] Well, that’s true. The way you’ve been talking lately, it makes it seem like you see him in a more positive light.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] Uh, it’s taken some time. But, yeah, I think I’m coming around to the idea that he knows me better than I thought. And he might actually want to do right by me. I imagine you’re up to date on newman’s plan to acquire mccall unlimited? And you know if that happens that victor is gonna keep it a separate entity and put me in charge?

Nick: Yeah, I just didn’t know if he had talked to you about it yet.

Adam: Well, assuming that happens and everything goes through, are you okay with that? Or is that gonna be something else that we have to overcome?

Nikki: I want to know whatever you know about victor’s plans to get a hold of mccall. I assume you know about this. At this point, it’s not confidential.

Lauren: Right. I’m up to speed.

Michael: No, I have no updates for you, nikki. There’s been no movement on that front. Tucker has still not agreed to sell to newman.

Nikki: So, it’s not imminent.

Lauren: You don’t want this acquisition to happen?

Nikki: Oh, no, I’m fine with the acquisition. It’s what might happen afterward that I am concerned about. Victor has this plan. He wants to put adam in charge, have him report only to victor, bypassing victoria. I mean, she wants to dismantle his company and fold it into the flagship.

Lauren: Oh. That sounds very tense.

Nikki: Yeah, well, things are volatile enough between adam, victoria, and nicholas on a good day.

Lauren: Say no more.

Nikki: Yeah. Our family has enough to deal with right now. I don’t want to add any more tension. Ugh. Victor and his plans.

Michael: Have you spoken to victor about this?

Nikki: I have voiced my thoughts about adam, to no avail. That’s why I would like you to help me in stopping this.

Chloe: I hope I didn’t upset you. I just — [ Sighs ] You have made such incredible progress. I would hate to see anything derail that.

Chelsea: You didn’t upset me, chloe. You’re being a good friend. You’re asking all the right questions. Trust me — I’ve asked myself the same ones.

Chloe: Okay, good.

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] Whatever’s going on between billy and me, it’s both exhilarating and terrifying — because I don’t want to mess this up.

Chloe: That’s understandable.

Chelsea: I mean, am I ready for more than friendship? Should I be? I don’t know. I just know that this connection I have with him feels new and different than anything I’ve felt for anybody. And, yes, different than what i felt for billy before.

Chloe: And I’m so glad to hear it.

Chelsea: I’m drawn to him, chloe.

[ Sighs ] It’s a pull that’s hard to ignore..and hard not to act on.

Billy: Thank you for opening up about your past like that. I appreciate it. And I know that was heartfelt. And it’s a good reminder to keep my wits about me, you know where chelsea is concerned.

Sharon: Well, I’m glad that it was helpful.

Billy: But, you know, sharon, our story isn’t yours and adam’s story. You know, we’ve been honest with each other about everything through all of this. And I’m not gonna hurt her. No one’s gonna get hurt here. Whatever chelsea and I have, it just feels right. (Vo) red lobster’s finer points of fun dining: Because I was hoping I could

Michael: I sympathize with your concern for your family, but I do not want to be caught in the middle of this. I’ll be happy to assist victor in any acquisition-related issues, consult on the legal status, but what happens to mcall after that — that’s way above my pay grade.

Nikki: Oh, that’s too bad because I was hoping I could count on you as an ally.

Michael: Well, think of me as switzerland without the chocolate.

Lauren: Do you realize the position you’re putting michael in?

Nikki: Yes, lauren, i understand that. But that doesn’t mean I’m gonna sit back and accept defeat.

Nick: Dad just loves to talk about the acquisition like it’s a done deal, but trust me — it is not.

Adam: Well, victor’s never been accused of having a confidence problem.

Nick: If we manage to snag mccall, I have no problem whatsoever with you off running it somewhere on the side. In fact, I would prefer it if you never came back to newman enterprises.

Adam: Really? I’m stunned.

Nick: Mm-hmm. If you remain autonomous, i believe it will keep conflict to a minimum.

Adam: Look, once again, we’re on the same page. Uh, unfortunately, victoria is not as open to that concept as you are.

Nick: Have you talked to her about it?

Adam: No. I asked dad what her response was, and he said that, uh, he’ll take care of it, which tells me she’s definitely not on board.

Nick: [ Chuckles ] You’re surprised by that?

Adam: No. Just trying to find out how big of a fight I have on my hands.

Nick: Have you ever known vick to back down from a fight? Sure, adam, dad’s got grand plans for you. But vick’s your ultimate roadblock.

Summer: Sally, I’m trying to be a better person here.

Sally: So, you just had this epiphany and decided to embrace it?

Summer: I needed a little push. My dad and I had a long talk, and… growing up, he wasn’t ever the kind of dad that would yell, but when he was upset with me, he would give me this look and i would know that he was disappointed. And I hated that look. And he brought it out, and… it just made me see things from another perspective.

Sally: So, you’re trying to get along with me to not disappoint your father?

Summer: Yeah.

Sally: I can appreciate that.

Summer: Look, while we’re putting all of our cards on the table, I still have reservations about you and my dad.

Sally: ‘Cause you think I’m not good enough for him.

Summer: No. Because I always thought that you and adam are a better match.

Sally: Why? Because you think so little of both of us?

Summer: [ Chuckles ] I mean, maybe in the past i thought that, but even then, i could see how good you two were together. It was like you inspired each other to be your best selves, and, honestly, it made you both a little easier to take. You got into a lot less trouble together than you did apart. And — I don’t know — something about the relationship just seemed to work.

Sally: And you don’t get that same vibe between me and your father?

Summer: I’m not saying that. All I care about is that my dad is happy, and if you can be the woman that does that, fantastic. But I’m not gonna lie to you, sally. The adam factor bothers me. It just feels like you two aren’t done with each other yet. And it’s not just that you seemed good together in the past. It’s that you’re pregnant with his baby and you two were together once and all of these months? What are the odds of that? It’s like the universe is trying to say something. It’s as though you two are… meant to be.

Next week on “the young and the restless”…

Adam: I might actually end up being the ceo of your empire.

Tucker: Over my dead body.

Elena: But tell me — what’s going on with you and victoria?

Jack: I proposed to diane. And, lucky me, she accepted.
