Chloe: Billy. Billy. Hey.

Billy: Hey. What are you doing back down here?

Chloe: Well, I was just gonna grab a late night cup of tea to help me sleep. You haven’t been down here zoning out since I left, have you?

Billy: I’m not sure, actually. You know, it was a big night. Champagne was poured, and I-i think I just lost track of time.

Chloe: Hey, look at me. Something’s wrong. What happened? Billy, talk to me.

Daniel: Don’t tell me to be quiet.

Danny: Keep your volume down. If people out there hear the threats that you’re making —

Daniel: They’re not threats. They’re not threats. I’m manifesting stark’s death.

Danny: Look, I know what a difficult time this is for you.

Daniel: Then why did you make me come back up here?!

Danny: Where are you gonna go? It’s too late and too early to accomplish anything. And even if, there is nothing you or any of us can do right now.

Daniel: Oh, sure there is. I can go back downstairs and I can beat some answers out of my new stepdad.

Danny: Beating stark to a pulp isn’t going to accomplish anything. You know that, daniel.

Daniel: There’s gotta be something that we can do. There’s gotta be some reason this happened. Someone is responsible for this, and if I could find them, then maybe I could just —

Danny: What? What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do? You gonna hurt ’em? Destroy their lives and yours? It’s not gonna bring your mother back. Phyllis is gone, and we have to accept it.

Daniel: No. No, I don’T.

Danny: Yes, yes.

Daniel: No, I can’t accept that! Mom never gave up on us. You know, she loved us in her own overbearing way. But if this had happened to me or this happened to someone or anybody else that she cared about, she’d be storming the police station. She’d be storming the hospitals. She’d be kicking butt and taking names, demanding to know everything that they know, hiring private detectives. She wouldn’t be sleeping at all, that’s for damn sure. And I-I just feel like there’s nothing that I can do for her.

Danny: We all feel powerless right now. It’s only natural.

Daniel: No. You know what hurts the most? Is I can’t blame mom’s death on anyone else. She’s dead because of me.

Nate: It was an accident.

Elena: I can’t help feeling like we let phyllis down somehow. I mean, I know we did everything that we could, but the whole thing is just so tragic. And her poor family. And then I keep wondering if we knew that emt driver that she died with.

Nate: Yeah. Make sure they’re taking up a collection for his family at memorial.

Elena: But the real question is, why did she need an ambulance in the first place? Why did this seemingly-healthy woman pass out out of the blue? I think we owe it to phyllis to find some answers.

Jack: Anything I can get for you?

Diane: Answers?

Jack: Yeah, I’d like a few dozen of those myself. How does this happen? Doesn’t make sense. How could phyllis be gone?

Diane: I mean, I was just — it was supposed to be such a memorable night.

Jack: Oh, it will be, for all the wrong reasons.

Diane: I can’t shake the feeling that the announcement about our engagement had something to do with it.

Ashley: Glad you’re awake.

Diane: This isn’t the right time for a fight, ashley. We’re all aware of your low opinion about our engagement, so any insults you’re going to hurl at me, just save it, ’cause I am not in the mood. What’s the #1 retinol brand

Chloe: Billy, um… if you’re upset about our kiss —

Billy: Oh, no.

Chloe: If you feel weird about it —

Billy: I don’T. At all. Do you?

Chloe: No.

Billy: Good, because that was a promising kiss.

Chloe: Yes, it was.

Billy: Well, I’m glad to hear you say that, because that was the highlight of my night. Actually, that was the best part of my last month.

Chloe: [ Laughs ]

Billy: I’m looking forward to do that again, to make sure that it was as incredible as I remember it.

Chloe: Well, that’s a possibility. Ok, so it’s not about the kiss?

Billy: No, it’s got nothing to do with you, chelsea.

[ Sighs ] I just got a phone call, and… phyllis is dead.

Nate: When I was standing in front of the mirror, tying my tie before the gala, I wondered how the night would end. This is not how I envisioned it.

Elena: Yeah, I don’t think anyone had this in mind.

Nate: And then [Clears throat] Standing in the lounge dedicated to neil, I was watching you from across the room. I couldn’t hear what you were saying, but watching you laugh, as beautiful as you are in that dress, all night, all I could picture was coming back home, and, uh…

Elena: I was watching you, too.

Nate: I did not catch you.

Elena: I’m smoother than you are.

Nate: And what were you thinking?

Elena: Same as you.

Nate: Why, dr. Dawson, am I being seduced?

Elena: Well, if you have to ask, maybe I’m doing it wrong.

Nate: I miss you.

Elena: I miss you, too. Maybe when we get back home, we can finish the night how we planned to, but for now, we need to find some answers for phyllis.

Nate: This late at night?

Elena: Oh, I have faith in us.

Danny: You are not responsible at all for your mother’s death. You hear me?

Daniel: You weren’t here the past few months. You didn’t see the way that I treated her. Yeah, she didn’t mean any harm. What did I do? I blamed her for everything. Pushed her out of my life. My god, the time that I wasted. I could have been with her, and maybe then…

Danny: What else could you have done?

Daniel: I don’t know, dad. Seen the signs? I mean, told her I loved her. Told her how much she meant to me. Instead, I just — I turned my back on her.

Danny: Don’t do this. You’re gonna drive yourself crazy.

Daniel: You know, when I lost heather and lucy, all mom wanted to do was help me. All she wanted to do was make sure that everything was alright with me. And you know what I did? I told her to stay the hell out of my life.

Danny: Daniel, the last thing your mother would ever want is for you to be doing this to yourself.

Daniel: We were supposed to have time, you know, to forgive and forget, brush things under the rug. Even at the gala, you told me to get past things with mom. And what did I say? “Not tonight.” And now, not ever.

Danny: You’ve got to hang on to the good memories. Yes.

Daniel: [ Sighs ] You know what I’m gonna remember? I’m gonna remember that I was the one who called her out in front of the whole town. That I broke her heart. I’m gonna remember how she looked at me and how hurt she was. That’s what I’m gonna remember. That’s what’s gonna play over and over and over again in my head for the rest of my life.

Ashley: I think there’s been enough conflict for one night.

Jack: Then you heard.

Ashley: Yes, from kyle and summer. Frankly, I’m heartbroken. Phyllis had me convinced that she was indestructible.

Jack: Hey.

Diane: Oh, kyle. I’d ask how summer is doing, but…

Jack: How can we help her?

Kyle: I wish I knew.

Ashley: I think, you know, just give her space and then be there for her when she does reach out, right?

Kyle: She’s just sitting by her son’s bed, watching him sleep, barely even speaking. Anyway, how’s daniel doing?

Jack: He really went off on stark. Who could blame him? Going on about his marriage to phyllis, waving a marriage certificate in everyone’s face?

Ashley: It kind of makes you think, doesn’t it? When a person marries someone who is universally despised — kind of like pouring salt on the wound of people that really care. (Wheezing)

Daniel: Mom must have felt so betrayed by her own kids, like we stabbed her in the back. You know, she needed us and she spent her whole life just trying to make sure that we were happy. How could we let this happen? It’s not supposed to end like this.

Danny: It’s gonna take some time, daniel. You have been through a lot tonight, you really have. And I will do whatever you need me to do, but tomorrow. Right now. You’re gonna get some rest.

Daniel: [ Sighs ]

Danny: Ok? Yeah, no, you do.

Daniel: I can’T. Not now.

Danny: Punishing yourself isn’t gonna bring your mother back. I know you want answers. We all do. But there’s nothing we can accomplish tonight. Absolutely nothing.

Daniel: Speak for yourself.

Danny: Alright. If you can’t sleep, then go to the gym, do a workout, take a shower, do whatever you got to do to get out of this downward spiral. And then we will pick up right where we left off tomorrow. Ok? Tomorrow.

Daniel: [ Sighs ] Yeah. Ok. Ok. And I — I’m sorry.

Danny: For what? Driving your old man crazy?

Daniel: For acting like I’m the only one that’s suffering.

Danny: Hey. We have to support each other. Tomorrow, you can be strong for me.

Daniel: Yeah.

Danny: Ok.

Daniel: I think I am gonna go take that shower.

Danny: Ok.

Daniel: Might actually help me sleep.

Daniel: Good. You go for it. Come here. I love you.

Daniel: I love you, too. The hell are we gonna do without her?

Lily: Hello?

Danny: Lily, hi. Um, it’s, uh — it’s danny.

Lily: Danny, I am so sorry about phyllis. I — I don’t even know what to say.

Yeah, it, um — it seems almost impossible.

Lily: I-I mean, how is everyone holding up? How — how is daniel?

Danny: That’s the thing.

Lily: I-I was gonna call, but I just assumed that he was with summer, trying to work through all of this.

Daniel: He’s um — he’s not with his sister.

Lily: What’s going on?

Danny: Daniel’s in a really — a really dark place right now.

Diane: For you to equate our relationship with whatever criminal or immoral activity the two of them were involved in —

Ashley: Now is not the time to be speaking ill of the dead, diane. Especially when her grieving daughter is right upstairs. Let’s just put our differences aside, ok?

Kyle: Thank you. It still doesn’t feel real.

Ashley: If there’s anything I can do at all, please let me know.

Kyle: I know. Thank you.

Ashley: I mean it. Morning, noon or night, ok?

Diane: Well, I’m glad ashley decided to back off. She was only making things worse.

Kyle: Thank you, all of you, for setting aside your differences while we try to handle this crisis.

Jack: Yes, of course.

Diane: And just know that your dad and I will do whatever we —

Kyle: Hey, summer. I thought you were trying to rest.

Summer: That was the plan.

Diane: Summer, I — I can’t imagine what a difficult time this is for you.

Summer: No. You can’T.

Jack: You don’t have to worry about a thing. I promise you, we will get to the bottom of all of this.

Diane: Yes. We’re sure that jeremy is involved, and we’ll find the connection. And I — I am just so sorry that your mother paid the price.

Summer: You’re sorry? You caused this. All of this. I used to pre-rinse dishes cause my old detergent

Chloe: Billy, I am so sorry. H-how is this even possible?

Billy: I don’t honestly know. You know, I’m not even sure how to feel about it. I mean, it’s awful, you know, and it’S… it’s shocking.

Chloe: Of course, but I mean, this is — this is someone you used to love.

Billy: Yeah. You know, that was a long time ago. And, you know, things did not end very well between us.

Chloe: But at one point in time, she meant everything to you.

Billy: You know, I made a lot of mistakes. And I’m not saying that I regret us breaking up. You know, our relationship ran its course, but, you know, things happened, and I wasn’t much more than a piece of gum on the bottom of her shoe for a long time, but we were able to work at that and we got to a decent place. How does — how does that even happen?

Chloe: Time. Forgiveness. Sometimes a lot of forgetting.

Billy: Yeah. You know, she started working at the hotel, running the hotel, and moving in different circles and all those positive things that we built during our relationship, it all faded away. You know, phyllis has the ability to drive anyone to dabble in their worst habits.

Chloe: She was definitely a handful.

Billy: Yeah, we brought out the worst in each other. Her being gone, it just — it feels wrong.

Daniel: You don’t have to babysit me all night, dad. I’m completely capable of taking care of myself. Lily.

Lily: Your dad let me in. I hope it’s ok that I’m here.

Diane: Summer. Whatever plan jeremy had come up with, I promise you, I had nothing to do with it. I was as shocked and horrified by what happened tonight as anyone and — and what a horrible way for you to find out that your mother had married him.

Summer: I don’t care about jeremy stark right now. This is about you, diane.

Jack: W-we’re just wondering how you imagine diane is involved in–

Summer: Imagine? Jack, I don’t need an imagination. We were all there. We were witnesses. You said to my mom that you would be doing the world a favor if you strangled her to death.

Diane: Those were words spoken in the heat of the moment, but you have to understand that —

Summer: I do.

I understand you were furious with her, and now she’s dead.

Diane: I — I know that you’re hurting, but I mean this from the bottom of my heart — I had nothing to do —

Summer: [ Laughs ] Your heart? Oh, my gosh. Your infamous boundless heart.

Jack: Summer, what happened tonight was an accident.

Summer: Is there a word for an accident that some people don’t regret? Some random, unfortunate event that actually benefits certain people?

Kyle: Maybe we should go upstairs and try to get —

Summer: No! Nothing is gonna change by the morning. You have no right to talk about my mom! You didn’t like her! We all knew that! You resented her because she knew exactly who you are. And as long as she was alive, you would have no real place here. You know what? My mom was real. She was more honest and true than you could ever hope to be. And you couldn’t be her, so you had to destroy her.

Jack: Don’t do this.

Summer: No! I didn’t speak up before, but I am going to now. My mom was right. I mean, we all see it. We all see it, don’t you? I mean, you really are the monster that she was warning us about. You did every single thing that she said that you did. You came in and you took over her life. You’re standing there clutching your pearls, saying that you’re going to find the real culprit.

Kyle: I’m sorry, mom. She doesn’t mean it.

Summer: She means every damn word! Kyle, this is me being honest for the first time in a very long time. Why don’t you try it, diane? Tell the truth. My mom’s dead. It’s what you wanted all along, isn’t it? – Bedtime!! – Bedtime.

“The young and the restless”

will continue. (Lucky) uh-oh the magic’s disappearing!

Elena: I just wish I had some answers, especially for her children.

Nate: When someone so young and full of life dies, it’s only natural to want to learn something from it.

Elena: Yeah, it’s certainly given me perspective.

Nate: What’s your take away?

Elena: Just to make sure the people in my life know how much they mean to me. It was also nice working with you again. We make a great team.

Nate: It was fun, stretching those old muscles again.

Elena: To think, it could be like this every day.

Nate: Listen, we will always be a team. Being a doctor will always be in my blood. But it’s a part of my past now. As you know, my life is moving in new directions, and I know it’s hard for you to accept, but I need you to respect it.

Lily: Daniel, I’m so sorry.

Daniel: Don’t tell me my dad called you.

Lily: Yeah, I think he just thought maybe I could help. I don’t really know how, but I’m here.

Daniel: No, I’m glad. Really, I am. I think I could probably use the company and maybe having someone who’s not going through the same emotional minefield I am will do me some good.

Lily: Yeah. Do you want anything? You want me to get something from room service for you or?

Daniel: No. No. No.

Lily: Can’t eat or drink? I’ve been there.

Daniel: You’re familiar with this territory?

Lily: Unfortunately, I am.

Daniel: What was it like for you, losing neil?

Lily: Um… it felt like the end of the world, you know, because it’s this person who has been there since the beginning. They’ve been there for every story in your life, you know. They were there on your first day of school, the first time you fell down and hurt yourself. Your first love, your first heartbreak. And then they’re gone.

Daniel: Without warning.

Lily: And I think that’s the hardest part, is just the the suddenness of it, because, you know, there was so much that I wanted to still do with my dad. And I was angry, too, you know, really angry because it’s like, what is this world where someone who surrounds you with their love is just gone?

Daniel: Yeah.

Lily: And I feel like it makes you divide your life into segments. You know, like there’s before my dad died, and — and now, you know. And I still pick up the phone sometimes to call him.

Daniel: What about when your mom died?

Lily: Well… they, um… they never found her body, so that’s, like, a whole other trauma that I don’t let myself think about.

Daniel: Yeah. Probably played head games with yourself. Told yourself that it was a mistake. She was still out there somewhere, needing your help.

Lily: Yeah. Because it’s like, how could someone who is so much larger than life, you know, just be gone? But you have to let go.

Daniel: [ Crying ] Well… [ Laughs ] That’s gonna be a problem. Yeah, it’s a family trait, you know. Don’t let go of anything very easily.

Lily: I know. You know, I heard this saying that I think is so true. And it’s like, “grief is love with nowhere to go.” And I know that’s how you feel because I know you had so much that you wanted to say to her and experience with her.

Daniel: Yeah, it just feels like it’s gonna hurt forever.

Lily: It will hurt forever. It will. But I promise you, it’ll get better. You just have to take it day by day. Or in this case, hour by hour.

Daniel: Well, even that sounds too hard.

Lily: But, daniel, just know that you have people who love you and want to support you, ok?

It’s true that the fight between me and your mother had become physical, but I never wanted actual harm to come to her.

Summer: The words that you —

Diane: They were just words, summer. They were completely regrettable.

Summer: So it’s just dumb luck that my mom died and made your wish come true?

Jack: No, that’s not what diane is saying.

Summer: No, diane — I want to hear it from her. I want to hear it from her. Tell me. Tell me how you felt when you heard that my mom was dead.

Kyle: Maybe we should go upstairs and make sure harrison is still —

Summer: No! My mom called your mom a threat, and now she is gone!

[ Crying ] I just want to know what happened. I need to know what happened.

Kyle: Just let me take care of you, ok? Harrison needs you, and so do I. Everything else can wait. Let’s go talk. Ok? Please. Ok.

[ Summer sobbing ]

Summer: I just miss her so much. I didn’t know I could miss her so much… and this is for the rest of my life. I — I can’t do it. I can’T.

Kyle: [ Sighs ] Hey, hey. Come on. Come on.

[ Summer continues sobbing ]

Diane: [ Clicks tongue ] Poor girl.

Jack: Summer needs someone to blame for her life being turned upside down.T remeer this tomorrow.

Diane: Yeah, well, maybe summer is too upset to be thinking clearly, but what about you, jack?

Jack: What do you mean? What about me?

Diane: Do you think I’m responsible for what happened to phyllis? I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,

Chloe: Genoa city without phyllis is gonna be…

Billy: It’s gonna be a lot quieter, that’s for sure.

Chloe: She definitely left her mark on this town. Summer, daniel, the grand phoenix — I mean, that’s — that’s a lot to be proud of.

Billy: This is the part of the night that I apologize.

Chloe: Apologize? For what?

Billy: Being a lousy date. You know, I might have looked like a million bucks and rocked it on the dance floor, but now we’re sitting here talking about a friend that just passed away. And it’s not how I thought the night was gonna end.

Chloe: Why don’t you come upstairs? To sleep.

[ Billy laughs ] Alone, on my very uncomfortable living room sofa. You shouldn’t be alone on a night like tonight.

Billy: Well, that’s the strangest offer I’ve ever gotten. And I’m gonna take you up on it.

Chloe: Good.

Elena: I already told you, I fully support the direction your life is taking. In fact, I think you’re amazing at everything you do.

Nate: So what’s your hesitation?

Elena: I just don’t want it to change you.

Nate: [ Sighs ] Elena.

Elena: No, I’m serious. I think there are people that can bring out the best in us, and then there are people who can bring out the less attractive aspects of ourselves.

Nate: But you completely and fully support my career decision.

Elena: It’s just the people in your life every day.

Nate: Is this about victoria again? I need her guidance, and I’m damn happy to have a trust and respect. But it’s sweet of you to worry. I’ll be fine.

We’ll be fine. After I get some rest.

Elena: You know what? I think I’m just gonna stay. I’ll walk home. I’m still a little wound up.

Nate: Ok. I’ll walk with you.

Elena: No, no need. You said you’re tired, so go home.

Lily: I mean, I probably think of my parents a few dozen times every day.

Daniel: Doesn’t it hurt?

Lily: In the beginning, it is unbearable. But as time goes on, the pain lessens, the memories get softer, and you stop thinking about all the things you did wrong, and you start thinking about how you made them proud. And you hold on tighter to the people that you love that are still in this world. And you have to be gentle with yourself. You know, the light that they gave to you — you can try to focus on giving that to someone else.

Daniel: Yeah, well, that all still seems like it’s pretty far off, so.

Lily: It is, and that’s ok. There is no rush. You grieve the way that you need to grieve. I mean, you’re probably so exhausted you’re not even processing this conversation.

Daniel: Well, my dad did tell me that I should get some sleep, but I don’t know — just, I don’t know how.

Lily: I know, but you know what? You’re probably gonna have an adrenaline crash pretty soon. So just, you know, get in bed and see what happens.

Daniel: Ok. Ok. I will do that. But I’m gonna call you first thing tomorrow.

Lily: You don’t have to do that, ok? I will be right here.

Daniel: You don’t have to stay here with me.

Lily: I know, but you can’t make me leave.

Daniel: [ Sighs ] What if I can’t sleep?

Lily: Well, then you’ll have someone to count sheep with.

Jack: You heard me just tell summer tonight was an accident.

Diane: You told a victim’s grieving child what she needed to hear. But it’s just us, and I need to hear what’s in your head and in your heart.

Jack: This isn’t necessary.

Diane: It is to me. Jack, I saw the look in your eyes when you found us fighting in that suite, how disappointed you were.

Jack: Please —

Diane: Please, just let me finish. You were fully prepared to blame me for the entire altercation. Yes, you were. And now maybe you think I’m partially to blame, you know — that I somehow played a part in it. Not that I wanted phyllis dead, but maybe you — maybe you think I wanted her out of commission while we made our announcement? No, it could have happened. I — I swear to you, I had nothing to do with what happened to phyllis. I promise you. And now I — I need you to be completely honest with me.

Jack: Ok. I’ll be completely honest.

Diane: Do you believe I’m innocent?

Jack: Six months ago, I might well have imagined you could bring harm to her. Now… diane, I have a mountain of questions about what happened to phyllis. You are not involved in any of them. And I am terribly, terribly sorry.

Diane: [ Crying ] Why are you sorry?

Jack: I’m sorry I made you ask. I’m sorry you questioned my love for you. You should never have to question that, ever.

Diane: [ Sighs ] These questions about phyllis’s death, they — they revolve around jeremy?

Jack: Something about everything that happened tonight, I cannot shake the feeling that he had a hand in it, and if this is a setup of some kind, it is the ultimate payback.

Diane: I’m just scared to think what happens next.

Jack: Well, you know him better than anyone else. What should we expect?

Diane: More mind games, manipulation.

Jack: Listen to me. Whatever he is up to, he’s not gonna get away with it. I think we should get some sleep. Tomorrow promises to be an arduous day.

Diane: Just promise me that you believe me.

Jack: I have unshakable faith in you. Nothing is ever gonna change that.

Daniel: [ Sighs ]

[ Sniffling ]

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Took you long enough.
