Daniel: I am so proud of you, baby girl. You and I know that your grandma would be proud of you too.

Phyllis: I’m sorry, baby.

Summer: Lucy, that was so beautiful. Thank you. I know how much you loved our mom. And I’m so glad that you two got a chance to spend time together a few months ago. None of us knew that it would be their last real time together. And now… now, my mom’s never gonna never gonna see lucy become an amazing adult. She’s never gonna see harrison grow up. I really do want this to be a celebration of my mom’s life. I really do, but that is so hard to do when we don’t understand why she was taken from us so soon. Or how. I mean, if only we could know what happened that night. Someone knows the truth. That’s all that I want. That’s all that I’m desperate for it’s what my mom deserves. Answers. Any answers could help my family sleep at night and then maybe, maybe, maybe, then we could say goodbye.

Kyle: Sweetheart, perhaps it’s time to focus on the celebration.

Summer: No, there’s been so many beautiful tributes to my mom tonight, but not everybody has had a chance to speak. Diane, we haven’t heard from you. Is there anything that you’d like to say about my mom?

Abby: Hi.

Devon: Hey.

Abby: Do you believe all this stuff? I mean, this is insane. I am insane. My stuff, it’s grown exponentially. All my clothes, all of my shoes and don’t even get me started started on dominic’s things. This is what happens when you have two of everything. One for when he’s with me, one for when he’s with you. I mean, uh, what are we gonna do? We need more storage? Do I need to rent another place downstairs for extra storage?

Devon: Hang on. Shh. Get your breath, okay? Welcome to your home.

Abby: Aw.

[ Both chuckling ]

[ Knock on door ]

Audra: Victoria.

Victoria: Audra. I didn’t hear you.

Audra: Yeah, you were a million miles away. Where was your head just now?

Summer: You and my mom go way back. You definitely had history.

Diane: Yes, we did, but um…

Phyllis: Good job, summer.

Diane: Uh, this is a time for phyllis’s loved ones. Um, the people who knew her best.

Summer: Say anything. Say what’s in your heart.

Jack: Summer, I don’t think it’s appropriate for diane to speak on this occasion.

Diane: You know, victor hasn’t said anything. Perhaps he’d like to add something.

Victor: I shall share my thoughts with my granddaughter in private.

Diane: That is a wonderful idea and I think I’ll follow his lead.

Summer: Oh, come on, diane. Don’t be shy. I know that you can do this. I mean, you had no problem sharing how you felt about my mother the last time you saw her. So please, just think of this as a chance to help my family grieve. And that’s why I wanted to keep this informal, intimate so that we could all lean on each other and speak our truths. The way my mom would have wanted.

[ Diane exhaling ] For people who are a little intense about hydration.

Abby: This is exactly what I needed. And these flowers, they’re heavenly. We’re actually doing this.

Devon: Yes, we are actually doing this.

Abby: I really, really, really don’t want to leave but there is so much left to do.

Devon: You don’t have to go anywhere. Let the movers handle everything else. You’re exactly where you need to be. And there’s one more thing.

Abby: One more thing.

Devon: Yes.

Abby: Hmm.

Devon: I think you’re gonna like it.

Abby: Oh. My very own set of keys.

Devon: Yes.

Abby: This makes it official.

Devon: Right?

Abby: Mm-hmm.

Devon: It will be really official though when louise brings dominic here because I got him some apple juice and some new baby bongos.

Abby: You’re spoiling us.

Devon: Well, that’s the plan. I don’t know if I can guarantee roses and champagne every single time you come home, but I’m never gonna stop trying to surprise you.

Abby: I like the sound of that. Not the surprising me part, but the coming home part. I love you for this, for wanting me and dominic here, for making this real.

Diane: Fine. Okay. Um, I’m– I’m– I’m not even sure what to say. As everyone here knows, uh, phyllis and I weren’t exactly friends.

Jack: You don’t have to do this.

Diane: No, no, jack, it’s okay. Because what I do know is that she loved her children and that you and daniel meant everything to her. And I–

[ Chair scraping ]

Daniel: Um, I think that’s maybe my cue to speak. You know my mother, um, I don’t really know if I could sum mom up in mere words. A friend of mine once described her to me as fierce. I would definitely say that that is an understatement. You know how when you’re a kid, you think that your mom is the most beautiful person in the world. That’s how I saw her. That’s how I’ll always see her. You know, this is, um… just paint and paper. Um, it resembles her. But my mom, she… she was an adventure. I mean, she crackled, she dazzled.

[ Chuckling ] She was unpredictable– you know, at the center of all of that there– there was this intense, just laser focused love. And it was that intensity that touched everything that she did, for better or for worse. I need to tell you, sometimes it was really hard to– to watch her just waste that brilliance. That sheer power that she had on the wrong things because she was that amazing. She really was and she shouldn’t be gone. No, I mean, not yet. Yeah, even in this, um, horrible, senseless death, I feel like she’s still trying to teach me. You know, she’s trying to teach me how to love better and to fight harder for and I feel like she’s trying to teach me how to protect the ones that you love and care about the most with everything that you’ve got. I just wish I could have learned those lessons while she was still alive. And I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I didn’t understand. I’m sorry that we fought. I’m sorry that I spent so much time away from you and I’m sorry that I won’t get any more time with you. I love you, mom. I always will. Why give your family just any eggs

Victoria: My mind was on a new venture. The risks, the rewards, how to maximize capital investment to accelerate growth.

Audra: Sounds exciting.

Victoria: Very.

Audra: Is there anything I can do to help?

Victoria: No, I’ve got this. Thank you.

Audra: These are the figures for the langston deal.

Victoria: Thank you. Adjusted earnings before taxes total indebtedness ratio. Excellent.

Audra: Yeah, I went ahead and did an analysis on the adjusted free cash flow to, you know, get a better idea of the company’s operating performance.

Victoria: You’re one step ahead. That’s exactly what I was gonna ask for next.

Audra: I like to be thorough.

Victoria: You continue to impress.

Audra: Just doing what I love.

Victoria: Well, you’re providing superb backup for nate, that’s for sure.

Audra: That’s the plan. To give nate everything he needs. Uh, so he can do his job to the best of his ability.

Victoria: Well, he does continue to– to prove himself, doesn’t he? It’s been a while since we’ve had a ceo of newman media with his talent.

Audra: Yeah, I know exactly how gifted he is. You know, his instincts are remarkable. So, it wouldn’t surprise me if he shot straight up the ladder here, you know, or somewhere else. So, it doesn’t hurt that I am familiar with practically every aspect of the projects that matter most to him.

Victoria: Correct me if I’m wrong, but what I’m hearing right now is that if nate were promoted, or if he were poached, you would want to take his place?

Danny: When I look at my son,

[ Danny sighing ] I– I see phyllis’s heart. I know her capacity for love and generosity of spirit, will– will live on in daniel and summer and lucy. Her humor, her brilliance.

[ Danny sighing ] Speechified has never really been my thing, so, uh, I’d like to honor phyllis with a song, if you don’t mind.

[ All applaud ]

[ Piano playing ]

I have a life

I live a life

it’s more like living

day to day just to get by

and it’s okay

’cause I get through

but I know there’ll

never be another you

I’ve got my friends

they’re always there

and someone special

that I know who really cares

but late some nights

a voice cries through

reminding me there’ll

never be another you

I can recall

all those winters and falls

nights of love

that I thought

would be always with us

writing our plans

on the beach, in the sand

but they faded in time

in the wind and with you


I think of you

from time to time

sometimes I wonder

if I ever cross your mind

but looking back

is hard to do

because it reminds me

there won’t be

another you

there’ll never be



[ All applaud ] She found it.

Audra: I guess I’m always looking for the next challenge. Uh, but of course, this is all just hypothetical, at least for now. But, you know, who knows what the future will bring?

Victoria: Well, as for the now, nate just started as a ceo of newman media and you’re an even more recent hire.

Audra: Yeah, I– I’m very aware of that. I have a great deal to learn and a lot to offer, which is why I want to make myself as useful as possible. So until the day comes when you need a new ceo, you know, I look forward to continuing to prove myself to newman media and to you.

Devon: What’s on your mind, pretty lady?

Abby: I’m nervous, but in a good way. I’m excited and happy and I’m looking forward to what’s ahead for us in the future.

Devon: Well, I know exactly what you mean because after these last few months of being angry, being hurt and making bad choices, I finally feel like I’m getting back to the life that I want. And that’s spending time with the people that make me happy. Which means staying with chancellor-winters and lily. And making a life and a home, right here with you and dominic. And you got me here. I’ve never been more excited about my future.

Daniel: Um, listen everyone, I just want to say on behalf of my sister and myself, thank you all so much for coming out today. Uh, you have no idea how much it means to us to be able to share our mom with you and to hear your love for her. So, please just have another drink, maybe share a story and uh, let’s just keep this celebration going just a bit longer.

[ Diane sighing ]

Jack: Hey, hey, hey. Are you okay?

Diane: Yeah, I’m– I’m fine. Just why did summer make me get up and say something about phyllis? And she wasn’t taking no for an answer. It was just really– it was just really awkward.

Jack: It was awkward. Summer’s lost her mother. I think her grief is hitting her pretty hard.

Victor: My beautiful girl. You just remember that you have your mother’s heart, strength and courage. And you have all of our support. Don’t you ever forget it.

Summer: I won’t, grandpa.

Nikki: It was a beautiful service, darling.

Summer: Thank you for letting me do it my way. I know that you were worried.

Nikki: Only about you. Your mother would be so proud. I love you.

Summer: I love you.

Lauren: That was such a beautiful song.

Michael: There wasn’t a dry eye in the house, you know, thanks to you.

Danny: Well, I– I just wanted to honor phyllis.

Michael: It was a wonderful tribute. She would’ve been so moved. Despite everything, you’re a huge part of her life.

Lily: I loved your speech. It was really, really beautiful. And I could tell it came from your heart. And I hope you know that your mom is always with you. Her spirit, her love, the memories that you have. Because I mean, as much as it hurt to lose my parents, I feel them with me every single day.

Danny: Excuse the interruption. I thought we could all grab a bite to eat. What do you say? And of course, lily, we’d love for you to join us.

Lily: Yeah, of course. I’d love that. Thank you.

Danny: Great.

Daniel: Um, let me just say goodbye to summer real quick.

Danny: Sure, of course.

Daniel: Hey.

Summer: Hey.

Daniel: I just wanna tell you, this whole event was so wonderful. Mom really would have loved it.

Summer: I’m so glad that you spoke.

Daniel: Me too. I love you.

Summer: I love you.

Daniel: Yeah.

Phyllis: You think you’ve won diane, don’t you? You haven’T. I will do anything to protect my family. Anything, and I will expose you for the lying, cheating psychopath that you really are. And your marriage, that’ll never happen as long as I’m alive. My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue. If you think you have dupuytren’s contracture,

[ Knock on door ]

Victoria: There you are.

Nate: Sorry, I’m late. I had to run back and grab some notes that I forgot this morning.

Victoria: No, not at all. Don’t worry about it. It gave me a chance to go over the figures for the langston report that audra compiled. She also put together an analysis of the operating performance.

Nate: Above and beyond, as usual. She is impressive.

Victoria: Well, that’s one word for it, I suppose.

Nate: Did something happen?

Victoria: You know, while I am, um, happy that you didn’t decide to go back to medicine after the other night’s events, I have this feeling that your coo doesn’t feel the same.

Nate: Still in the dark.

Victoria: Audra has her eyes on your job.

[ Both laughing ]

Nate: Gotta love her.

Victoria: You’re not concerned?

Nate: I’d be a little disappointed if she wasn’t angling for my desk. That’s what makes audra so damn good at her job. Her ambition, confidence. Maybe I see something of myself in her.

Victoria: And you don’t mind looking over your shoulder?

Nate: Uh, the last thing I want to do is discourage her enthusiasm. And there’s nothing wrong with a second in command who’s on top of what’s going on.

Victoria: I hope that that doesn’t mean that you have any plans to move on?

Nate: Oh, I love my job. I’m not going anywhere. At least, not by choice. So, you are stuck with me.

Victoria: Well, I’m very glad to hear that.

Lily: But, thank you for including me.

Danny: Of course. Yeah. I thought it would be good if we all, you know, decompressed. Spent some time with loved ones.

Lily: Yeah.

Danny: Did you know that before your father became a gifted artist and game developer, he was a banana?

Lucy: Excuse me?

Danny: Yeah, that’s right, yes. And lily was a strawberry.

Lily: I cannot believe you told your dad about that. Really? You told him?

Daniel: Apparently I did.

Lucy: What happened?

Danny: Well, these two free spirits free spirited themselves all the way to the west coast.

Lucy: You guys ran away?

Daniel: No, not exactly.

Lily: Yes, exactly. We ran away. We did and we needed jobs, so.

Daniel: And the only way we could make any money was…

Lucy: Pretending to be fruit?

Daniel: Yeah, something like that. Pretty much.

Danny: Ah, you kids are something else. You know, I still have that video your mom sent me of your graduation day. I showed it to everybody on the tour, I think many times and uh, I’m just so proud of you and so was your mom. Not just for the huge milestone, but for the man you were becoming.

[ Diane exhaling ]

Diane: Every time I turn around, she is staring at me.

Jack: Hey, as lovely as all of this has been. I think everyone here is on edge.

Diane: Why is he even here? What, were he and phyllis particularly close?

Jack: As I understand it, he’s here to make sure stark doesn’t cause any trouble. I, for one, am grateful he succeeded.

Kyle: Summer.

Chance: Excuse me.

Kyle: How are you holding up?

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: Even after all of this, I just can’t believe she’s really gone.

Kyle: She would’ve loved it. The wonderful memories, all the people who loved her, danny’s song. I think she really would have liked the part where you put my mother on the spot. Any particular reason you did that?

Summer: Just um, just kind of came to me in the moment. I guess I was sort of channeling my mom, you know. How she liked to mix things up.

Kyle: Summer, what is it?

Chance: Diane, can I speak with you outside, please?

Jack: Uh, no. No, she’s not going anywhere.

Chance: Jack, I’m not trying to cause a scene. I just need to speak with diane.

Diane: What do you want to speak with me about?

Jack: This is a memorial service. A family is mourning, this isn’t the place.

Kyle: I agree. Whatever the authorities want can wait.

Summer: Why don’t we just hear what detective chancellor has to say?

Diane: I want to go home.

Jack: How about meeting us at the house?

Chance: Listen, jack, I was trying to be discreet about this, but if this is how you wanna do it, fine. Diane jenkins, you are under arrest for the murder of phyllis summers.

[ Diana gasping ] Nicorette knows quitting smoking is freaking hard.

Victoria: Solid metrics, favorable debt to equity ratio.

Nate: With nowhere to go but up. These numbers are even more promising than I anticipated.

Victoria: And using the cash we have earmarked for mccall gives us the liquidity to take langston to the next level.

Nate: Your instincts to jettison the mccall deal were spot on. This purchase is going to expand our market share and make one hell of a power statement.

Victoria: Mm-hmm. And newman is all about power. So, we’re agreed?

Nate: It’s a go.

Victoria: All right. Well, then I will call first thing in the morning and I’ll make the offer. All right, work hours are over. How about we have a drink to celebrate? I bought this new bourbon that I’ve just been dying to try. And if I remember correctly, we seemed to enjoy the last bottle that we shared?

Nate: Very much.

[ Chuckling ] You do know what I like.

Lily: Those empanadas were so good.

Daniel: Mm. Not nearly as good as those grilled cheese you used to make when we were kids.

Lily: What are you talking about? You said I burned them.

Daniel: No, they were just a little crispy. It’s made with extra love, right?

Lily: Yes, absolutely.

Daniel: I think that I actually prefer them that way now.

Lily: No, you don’T.

Danny: You know what? It, uh, it looks like my granddaughter could use some rest.

Daniel: Oh, okay. When’s the last time you slept?

Lucy: Oh, no, dad, it’s okay. You’ve had bigger things to worry about than my jet lag.

Daniel: No, no, no, no. Let’s– let’s get you back to the hotel.

Lucy: No, no. I mean you– you stay. You haven’t even ordered dessert yet and that’s your favorite part.

Danny: Your daughter knows you well. I can take her back, and besides, I will enjoy having a little extra time with this little angel.

Daniel: Well, okay then. I’m– I’m convinced.

Danny: Great. All right.

Lucy: Let’s go.

Daniel: Oh, right now? Okay. Okay.

Danny: Come here, you. I love you.

Daniel: I love you too, dad.

Lucy: Bye, dad.

Lily: Have a good night.

Danny: Okay. Thank you, for everything.

Lily: Of course.

Danny: Okay, we’re off.

Daniel: Okay.

Lucy: Have fun.

Lily: All right. Bye guys.

Danny: See you soon.

Lily: Get some rest.

Lucy: I will.

Lily: Bye.

Daniel: Did you see that?

Lily: What?

Daniel: Pretty sure the two of them are just trying to set us up.

Lily: What?

[ Lily laughing ]

Policewoman: Anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of law–

Jack: Are handcuffs really necessary here?

Chance: Don’t make this harder than it has to be.

Diane: This is a mistake. I did not do anything. I did not kill phyllis.

Jack: This is insane. Diane is to blame for an ambulance accident that phyllis died in? She was at the gala all night. There are people, many of whom are in this room, can verify it.

Chance: Jack, there is new evidence. A lethal amount of toxin was found in her blood prior to the crash.

Jack: Phyllis was poisoned? That can’t be.

Lauren: That certainly explains her stumbling and the way she fell.

Diane: So, you think I poisoned phyllis? That’s ridiculous.

Kyle: There’s no way my mother did this.

Diane: No, it had to be jeremy stark. He did this, you know–

Jack: Why haven’t you arrested stark? No one here believes he’s married to phyllis.

Chance: I am following the evidence.

Jack: And it leads to diane? That makes no sense at all. What possible proof do you have that she’s involved?

Chance: You know what, I’m not gonna answer any more of your questions. I’m gonna have to take her. Let’s go. Come on.

Diane: No, you know what–

Kyle: Mom, I promise we’ll figure this out. We’ll get you home as soon as possible.

Diane: I didn’t do anything. I want to talk to a lawyer. Michael. Michael, please help me. That’s me before dawn powerwash.

Daniel: Can I walk you to your car?

Lily: Oh, no, it’s okay. I’m just right there.

Daniel: Okay. Um… thank you for being there today. And for helping me through the other day. You know, for trying to help me when I don’t even know what it is that I need.

Lily: I think the two of us helping each other will never change. Even after all these years. Get some rest, okay? And please let me know if you need anything.

Daniel: I will.

Lily: Night.

Daniel: Good night.

Nate: Ooh, 20 year old single barrel reserve. Doesn’t get much better than this.

Victoria: I’m so glad you approve.

[ Victoria chuckling ] The kentucky chew.

Nate: I love the heat it creates on the tongue. Experiencing every nuance the bourbon has to offer.

Victoria: Oh.

Nate: That nice, long finish.

Victoria: Mm. Yum. Leather, spice.

Nate: Just the right amount of sweet.

Victoria: You’re an expert?

Nate: Well, when I’m intrigued by something, I want to know everything I can about it.

Victoria: Oh, I see.

Nate: Unlock the mystery. Make it mine.

Victoria: A man of passion.

Nate: A man with an empty glass.

Victoria: Oh, mm. Dare I offer you a refill or is that too dangerous on a week night?

Nate: When you’re offering me something I obviously want, how can I resist?

Victoria: You resisted before.

Nate: This time, resistance is futile.

[ Both panting ]

Diane: Please michael, say that you’ll represent me. Don’t let them lock me up.

Lauren: Don’t tell me you are seriously considering defending diane right now.

Chase: The evidence will be out soon.

Diane: You have to believe me. I did not kill phyllis. I am innocent and whatever evidence they have against me, I’ve been framed.

Michael: I’m sorry, diane.

Diane: Michael.

Michael: Have jack call an attorney and don’t say a word until one is present.

Jack: I promise I will get you the very best representation. Someone who will get these charges laughed out of court.

Chase: Okay, let’s go. Come on.

Jack: I’m gonna follow in my car. You stay here with summer.

Summer: Go. I’ve got my dad here.

Kyle: Okay.

Nick: You okay?

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: I guess I got what I’ve been hoping for. The truth. Diane killed my mom. She always said that diane was dangerous and I should have believed her.

[ Summer sobbing ]
