Mariah: We’re here.

Sharon: Hi. There they are.

Tessa: Hi.

Sharon: Hi. Oh, my goodness. Look at this sweet little angel. She’s so beautiful. Could she be more perfect?

Mariah: Uh, well, looks can be deceiving. Remember this is your first time alone with her and she can be a handful.

Sharon: Oh, not this little sweetie.

Tessa: Oof. Count down to the wake-up call.

Mariah: Mm-hmm.

Sharon: Okay, you guys don’t scare me. We are going to have a great time and I’m ready for whatever the evening brings.

Christine: Okay, so have you turned up anything else? Anything new come to light? I am looking for anything else I can use in court.

Chance: I am re-evaluating all the evidence, doing a deeper dive. Trying to follow up on some new leads as well.

Christine: Then chance, we need to go back over this entire investigation. Maybe there’s something we overlooked. If we’re gonna win this case, I need a rock solid prosecution.

Chance: Yeah, of course. I mean, I’m turning over every stone, but… what’s with this new attitude? I thought you were feeling confident about this trial.

Christine: I am. It’s just michael’s latest strategy is a real doozy. God, of all the defenses I thought he would try, the last thing I ever expected him to claim was that the deceased is still alive.

Chance: Yeah.

Tucker: Look at that one. Banging away at them bongos. He’s got perfect time.

Ashley: He’s so adorable. I’m so impressed that you were able to stay that whole time. Especially considering it was maracas day.

Tucker: Well, it gave it a latin flair.

Ashley: Did it give you a headache? Did you tell everybody, all the grown-ups that you were a big fancy music producer?

Tucker: No, I didn’t have to, the teacher recognized me.

Ashley: Really?

Tucker: Yeah. Even played one of my old tunes for the kids to rattle along to. Next time, I’m gonna bring a playlist. Tucker mccall’s greatest hits.

Ashley: Next time?

Tucker: Hmm. I loved it. I’m thinking of becoming a regular.

Ashley: Okay, seriously. Who are you? Because the tucker mccall that I used to know would never have the patience to sit through a toddler’s music class with maracas. So, what’s come over you?

Tucker: You, wonderful you.

Abby: Can you believe how quickly dominic crashed? That music play group just wore him out.

Devon: Oh, I know. Exercising all that talent is bound to tire him out.

Abby: Oh, yeah. Well, I’m sure his grandpa is probably exhausted too.

Devon: Yeah. I was very surprised that tucker wanted to come and hang out in class today.

Abby: Yeah, louise said that he was already there when they got there. That he stayed the whole entire class. He was riveted the whole time and that he was, like, taking pictures and recording video.

Devon: He’s like a proud grandpa.

Abby: Okay. Can you believe this? I mean, tucker playing the role of doting grandpa? I don’t know. I mean, at first, I thought that maybe this was all just part of a plan to get you to forgive him or some sort of scheme to win my mom back, but maybe he actually wants to be a real part of dominic’s life and yours.

Devon: Yeah, I think he does. He’s definitely been putting forth the effort and he seems more sincere about it these days than he has before, so. I don’t know, maybe your mom’s having a positive effect on him.

Abby: But do you think it’s actually possible that tucker is a changed man?

Devon: Hey, anything is possible, right?

Abby: I want nothing more to be true. But I just– I can’t trust it. I’m afraid that all of this is part of some con to win my mom back. And screw her over even worse this time.

Kyle: Okay, we’re in. Now what?

Jack: I don’t even know what we’re looking for, but I guarantee you, we will know it when we see it. When migraine strikes, you’re faced with a choice.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Chance: Yeah, this new defense strategy is definitely surprising. You can’t charge her with murder if there’s no murder. I didn’t see that one coming.

Christine: Which is why we need to be doubly sure where our evidence stands and where we need to shore up. It’s all highly incriminating, but it’s mostly circumstantial.

Chance: Well, we have the physical fight. We have an outraged diane who was threatening a woman who ends up dead a few hours later. We have the letter that phyllis wrote and the voicemail that she left michael.

Christine: In what was probably her last call? And phyllis was clearly leaving a cry for help.

Chance: Her cell phone wasn’t recovered in the fire, but we are reaching out to the phone company to see if she reached out to anybody else. I think it’s ironic that she voiced her fear of diane to michael, who ends up being her defense attorney.

Christine: Yeah, which makes me wonder how he could believe in her innocence so passionately.

Chance: Maybe it’s because all of our evidence goes squarely to motive. There’s no direct proof of murder.

Christine: What about the strychnine that was purchased under diane’s name?

Chance: Well, unfortunately, there is no record of her receiving it by delivery or picking it up. And there’s no prints on the vial either.

Christine: Then how did she get it in her possession? And how did she touch the vial without leaving fingerprints? Obviously, she used gloves.

Chance: I mean, that’s the only way. But why would she think she needed gloves? And more to the point, after she used the poison and achieved her goal, why did she keep the vial?

Christine: God, see, it’s– it’s discrepancies like these that can give a jury, reasonable doubt.

Chance: Yeah. There are enough holes in this case to give michael some leverage with a jury. I mean, maybe there is something to the possibility to an extreme setup. Should I look into that?

Christine: Wait, are you starting to buy the thought that phyllis is still alive?

Chance: I think it’s a stretch. I think we should keep looking into stark. If diane and stark were working together, then maybe he crossed her. There could be something there. I don’t know, but I know there’s more to the story than what we know.

Christine: Okay, look, I am open to the fact that diane had a co-conspirator. I mean, there are elements here that she couldn’t have done it alone. Oh, god, and what about the leak at the department? I mean, someone spoke about the murder weapon. No one on the outside knew about the scissors. So we have to plug that hole A.S.A.P.

[ Phone chiming ]

Chance: Oh, excuse me one second. I gotta take this. Yeah.

Kyle: Michael hit the jackpot when he linked stark’s P.O. Box to this place.

Jack: He did. I wish they still had security footage from that period. At least the manager told me he rented this room to a spencer jenkins.

Kyle: He used mom’s last name and reversed his initials. J.S. To S.J. Not much of a con man after all.

Jack: At least I talked him into letting us in here.

Kyle: How much did that cost you?

Jack: I don’t know what the going rate is, but I paid a lot more. Here. One of these.

Kyle: Oh, you’re not too bad at this detective thing. You’ve thought of everything.

Jack: We can’t overlook anything. No matter how small, no matter how seemingly inconsequential. Start looking.

Kyle: I know a lot of time has passed since stark was here and we don’t even know if phyllis was with him. The motel staff has probably cleaned this place multiple times, not to mention all the guests checking in and out.

Jack: True, but we still could find something. This isn’t exactly the grand phoenix. I’m sure their housekeeping department is not meticulous. All we need to do is find something phyllis left behind that we can pull dna from and we prove that she’s still alive and that your mother is innocent.

Abby: I’m not trying to minimize tucker’s affection for you or for dominic. Don’t get me wrong. I’m just saying wherever he’s concerned, caution is not a bad idea.

Devon: I completely agree with you. I’ve had my guard up since he showed up to town and put a plant in our company. You know? But his priorities have seemed to have changed since he sold his company. And regardless of how we feel, he and your mom are getting a lot closer.

Abby: I’m afraid you’re right. My mom never would have moved him into the abbott house unless there’s something more going on between them. Is everything okay? Are you late for a meeting or something?

Devon: Yeah. No, I’m waiting for a package. But, how do you really feel about this? About them progressing? You know, if they keep moving forward into a real serious relationship? And it’s your mom and my dad.

Ashley: So, you’re in such a great mood because of me?

Tucker: Not quite that simple. I’m a very complex person, as you know.

Ashley: Oh, yes, I definitely know that. So then why are you in such a good mood?

Tucker: I don’t know. Seeing dom’s musical gifts really uplifted me. And then there’s your invitation to me.

Ashley: Huh? What invitation was that?

Tucker: I seem to recall you inviting me to move from the guest room to your bedroom.

Ashley: Oh, yeah. That invitation.

Tucker: Yes, yes, yes, that invitation. I, um…

[ Ashley laughing ] I haven’t had a chance to pack my stuff up, but if you’d rather I go slowly, I can just move a few pairs of skivvies down with me.

Ashley: Oh, I like slowly. But I think we could do better than just skivvies.

Diane: Oh, hello love birds. I hope you enjoyed your walk. I can’t wait to be out there joining you, getting my steps around the neighborhood.

Ashley: Don’t get your hopes up. Not with that ankle monitor on. Actually, maybe you should give it a shot and see how quickly they throw you back in jail.

Diane: Sorry, it’s not going to happen. Besides, what would you and tucker do without jack and me around to set an example of what true love and happiness really looks like?

Tucker: Okay. Why don’t we head upstairs and pick up where we left off?

Ashley: Yeah. Actually, I could think of a better idea. Look, why don’t we leave the house entirely and get away from this insanity?

Diane: Oh, wait, wait. No, no, no. Don’t– don’t go so quickly. I was about to go through these bridal magazines. You see, I do have a wedding to plan. And I have to pick out the perfect dress for when I become mrs. Jack abbott. Hey, ashley, maybe you can help me.

I have type 2 diabetes,

Mariah: Can you believe it? It’s our first official date night since becoming moms.

Tessa: Thank you for babysitting, sharon. Uh, are you sure you’re up for it?

Sharon: Am I up for it? I think the real question here is, are you? You two seem a little nervous to me.

Mariah: Nervous. No, get out of here. That’s crazy. Um, just so you know, you have plenty of extra bottles in case she wakes up hungry.

Tessa: Oh, yeah, and her bunny is in her carrier. It really helps calm her down when she gets fussy.

Mariah: Oh, and I almost forgot, you made sure that the car seat base is installed properly, right?

Sharon: Relax. In fact, one of G.C.P.D’s finest was in today and I had him take a look at it. Because, um, somehow I knew you would ask.

Mariah: Okay, good. Well, I’m glad chance had a moment to spare.

Sharon: Actually, it wasn’t chance. But I could ask him to come by here and just double-check it if it makes you more comfortable.

Mariah: No, no, it’s– it’s fine. I’m sorry. I know we’re being overbearing.

Tessa: It’s our first night away from aria since she’s been born. And you know, all she’s ever known is– is us and being with us.

Mariah: And we’re not worried about you. I mean, you’re basically the best mom on the planet and you have tons of baby experience. Although, it’s been a minute.

Sharon: Oh, my gosh. Relax, will you? Watching after a baby is like riding a bike. You never forget.

Mariah: I’ve never seen you ride a bike.

Tessa: But you have been through this experience many times. For us, it’s just, uh, I mean, every day suddenly we have to develop this new skill just to catch up with whatever aria has learned that day. I mean, as opposed to who she was last week.

Mariah: I can’t wait for that to taper off. I just feel like she’s learning way too much, way too fast.

Sharon: Really, mariah? Because this is only the beginning. That gets even worse. Your kids continue learning more and more.

Mariah: Okay. How do you keep up?

Sharon: You don’T. You just hold on for dear life and then, one day, they pick up and go to the university of michigan and rarely call you again.

Mariah: Okay, so I’m guessing faith hasn’t called in a couple of days.

Tessa: Maybe we should stay home tonight. I mean, what if we miss something?

Mariah: Yeah. You know, mom, uh, maybe we should just stay with aria. We could go home, we could take a nap, you know, save up that energy for aria’s next big surprise.

Tessa: I mean, you’re right. I mean, what if there’s an emergency, we don’t want to be all tired and worn out–

Sharon: No, I won’t hear of this. Date night is happening. That’s it.

Chance: We got a new development.

Christine: What happened?

Chance: So, remember the night of the gala, I had a stakeout, right? And I was frustrated as hell because by the time I got to the athletic club, phyllis had already been poisoned, collapsed, taken by the E.M.T.’S. All that.

Christine: Yeah, right. But what’s the new development?

Chance: It turns out the guys I was supposed to be watching couldn’t have been anywhere near that spot that night. Chicago P.D. Had already picked them up. And here’s the kicker. The call that sent me out there in the first place came in the very same day from a phone line at the athletic club. It was one of my cases so I personally had to follow up on it.

Christine: So, what you’re saying is someone wanted you far away from the event that night.

Kyle: Nothing. Nothing at all. I don’t even know what we’re looking for anymore.

Jack: What do you make of this?

Kyle: Long red hairs. What does that prove? I’m sure a lot of redheads rent motel rooms.

Jack: No, that’s true, but it’s something we can work with. This is a dna sample. All we have to do is compare that to a sample from a close relative.

Kyle: Summer.

Jack: Exactly. Can you find something of hers? A hairbrush, a water bottle? Something we can pull dna from.

Kyle: That shouldn’t be a problem.

Jack: Good. Maybe we just caught a break.

Kyle: Okay.

Diane: Diane abbott. Mrs. Diane jenkins abbott. No, I– I should probably drop the jenkins. I should ask you to be my maid of honor. Wouldn’t you love standing next to me–

Ashley: You know what I would love to do…

Tucker: Ah, ah, ah. Here we go.

Ashley: I can’t take any more of you.

Diane: Bye.

Ashley: I can’t stand her. Why did you take me out of there? I just wanna kill her.

Tucker: I know I wanna kill her. Let’s kill her.

Ashley: Oh, shut up. Mm.

Tucker: Let’s go somewhere and celebrate.

Ashley: What are we celebrating?

Tucker: ‘Cause we can go somewhere and celebrate together.

Ashley: Okay, let’s go.

Devon: What’s so funny?

Abby: Well, apparently, um, it’s from one of the dads in dominic’s music group. Tucker was a big hit in the music class today.

Devon: Really? How so?

Abby: Well, the teacher recognized tucker and he played one of his old songs for the kids.

Devon: Gosh.

Abby: Okay. What is up with this package? You’re very concerned with it. What are you waiting for?

Devon: I’m waiting for the courier.

Abby: Oh, you’re waiting for your courier. That’s very fancY.

Devon: What do you mean?

Abby: Uh, most people have a delivery guy deliver their package and you have a courier. Ooh.

Devon: Gosh. Really? You’re making fun of me. You’re an abbott and a newman and you own the most popular restaurant in town and you live in a penthouse that looks over the city, so… you wanna talk who’s fancy? Look in the mirror.

Abby: Oh, maybe so. But my packages are delivered by a delivery guy. Not a courier. Devon: Oh, yeah.

Abby: Not a courier. I’m so fancy.

Devon: This is a very special package. So it requires some professional assistance.

Abby: A special package?

Devon: That’s right.

Abby: Ooh, could it be a gift? Devon, you shouldn’t have. Oh, is it jewelry?

Devon: It is not jewelry. No.

Abby: It’s not jewelry, okay. Is it keys to a brand new car?

Devon: No.

Abby: Ooh, a boat? A boat? Did you buy us a yacht?

Devon: Yes, I did.

Abby: You did?

Devon: How’d you know? They’re gonna deliver it right to the front door.

Abby: I love it. Ooh, or it could be something for dominic. Maybe that big stuffed elephant that we saw last week.

Devon: It’s not that, but that’s a great idea because he would love it.

Abby: He would love it. But I don’t know if there’s enough space in his room for it.

Devon: What are you trying to say? We need a bigger house.

Abby: Hm. Maybe. I mean, I don’t know. Not right now. I mean I love that we have this penthouse overlooking the city. But dominic, well, he might need a yard. You know, he loves the chancellor mansion. He loves the– the grounds and the pond and– and all of the things.

Devon: Okay. So, you’re saying we need to get a place like the chancellor mansion?

Abby: I’m just planting a seed because I think that our growing boy needs a lot of room.

Devon: Well, I agree with you. So the seed has been planted. I’ll think about it.

[ Knock on door ]

Abby: Oh, it’s your courier?

Devon: Oh, it’s my fancy courier.

Abby: It’s your fancy courier.

Devon: Something I’ve been waiting for my whole life is here.

[ Abby sighing ]

Devon: Thank you.

If you, like many people,

Sharon: I mean it, you two are not changing your plans. You are going on that date night tonight.

Mariah: Okay. But mom–

Sharon: No buts. Look as new moms, it’s important that you learn to take time out for yourselves. It’s gonna make you better parents and it’s the only way you’re gonna stay sane. And aria does deserve sane parents, wouldn’t you say? Besides, it’s way too early for you two to become helicopter moms?

Tessa: Oh, no. Mariah and I would never turn into those overprotecting, overbearing parents. Would we?

Mariah: No, nO. Well, no, way.

Sharon: Okay, you guys get out of here, would you? Go out and have a wonderful time. Aria and I are gonna be just fine. I promise you, you have nothing to worry about. Look, I’ve got it all planned. We’re gonna hang out here for a little while and then it’s back to my place for a girl’s night. Dinner, a bath, and some bedtime stories. We are going to have so much fun, aren’t we, aria? We are going to bond and play and really get to know each other.

Tessa: Oh, well.

Mariah: I guess we’re gonna have to force ourselves to have fun.

Tessa: But please, please call us if you need us.

Mariah: Or if aria needs anything.

Tessa: Oh, and have your camera ready because if she does something cute, can you please just send us–

Mariah: And she does cute stuff all the time.

Sharon: Okay, bye. Stay out as late as you want and have a good time. Look at you. You’re so adorable. We’re gonna have so much fun. Yeah, I’m gonna make you a really yummy dinneR. We’re gonna have a bath. Yeah, we’re gonna have a good time together.

Abby: Is it what I think it is?

Devon: You have to be more specific.

Abby: Open it, open, open it. It’s a court document. I knew it, ah.

Devon: It is official. My name is devon hamilton winters.

Abby: It’s just– it’s such a beautiful gesture. I love it.

Devon: Are you getting emotional?

Abby: I love the deep love that you have for neil. And you always find a way to honor him. Keeping hamilton as your middle name, you’re keeping harmony alive in your heart. You’re a very special man.

Devon: Oh, baby. You’re a very special woman. Well, I think it’s very cute when you get sentimental like this.

Abby: Are you making fun of me?

Devon: I’m not making fun of you. No. I actually find you very attractive right now.

Abby: Oh, what should we do about it?

Devon: I have a few ideas.

Abby: Oh, so do I. I think you should take me here and now.

Devon: Well, you don’t have to tell me twice.

Abby: To the neil winters jazz lounge so we can celebrate your new name.

Devon: Fair enough. That’s a good idea.

Christine: So that tip call very well could have come from diane herself. The last thing she would have wanted was a detective like you anywhere near a party where she was gonna plan a murder.

Chance: Except it was a male caller. Brings us right back to stark. He took care of getting me out of the way. Christine, stark, and diane could have been in this together, right? He was in charge of putting up the smoke screen so their plan could go off without a hitch.

Christine: It’s possible. It’s also possible that that false tip was just a coincidence.

Chase: Are you still hung up on the idea that diane and diane alone committed this crime? I– I gotta tell you, I’m not so sure anymore.

[ Diane sighing ]

[ Diane sighing ]

Diane: Hey, phyllis! I know you’re out there somewhere and believe me, you will be found!

[ Diane sighing ] I used to wait to run my dishwasher

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Mariah: Okay, we said that we weren’t gonna be those parents. You know, the ones that need to check up on their kid, every few seconds.

Tessa: Yes. Yes, we did. Uh, but we made that promise before we met aria, the most special baby in the whole world. Oh, I can just see how it happens. It happens so easily.

Mariah: Yeah. Do you think this happens to everybody once they have a kid in their lives?

Abby: Look who it is.

Devon: It’s the new moms.

Abby: Let me guess. This is your first time out since baby, am I right?

Tessa: Is it too soon?

Mariah: You don’t suppose aria feels abandoned, do you?

Devon: Abandoned? No, of course not.

Abby: No. I mean, it’s only natural to feel a little bit nervous but it’s definitely not too soon.

Devon: Yeah. You have to enjoy your nights out. You’re new parents. Would you like to join us in the jazz lounge?

Mariah: Oh, sure, maybe.

Tessa: Yeah, later.

Abby: Okay, that was not even a little bit convincing. But trust me, I get it. It’s hard enough to focus on each other when all you can think about is that little baby at home.

Tessa: You’re so right.

Abby: Trust me, I get it. I’ve been there.

Devon: Baby steps, you two. The first hurdle is leaving the house and then before you know, we’ll be double dating before they go to preschool.

Abby: All right. Well, you know where we’ll be.

Devon: Yeah, join us if you want.

Mariah: Thank you, guys.

Abby: Have a good night.

Tessa and mariah: Bye.

Tessa: Oh, my gosh.

Mariah: Oh, isn’t she a sweetie?

Tessa: Oh, she’s so beautiful. Look at this one.

Mariah: Oh, my god, the bow. Okay, I wanna see that video that you took earlier. Oh, my goodness.

Christine: You’re not confident in our case anymore? Why not?

Chase: There’s too many holes, damn it.

Christine: Look, it may be circumstantial, but the evidence against diane is still very damning.

Chance: The more I learn, the more plausible it seems that phyllis and stark were in on this together. I mean they could have conspired to turn the tables on diane and frame her for murder. That’s the exact same thing diane did when she faked her death, right? It sounds like the kind of insane plan that stark and phyllis would come up with.

Christine: Don’t say you’re getting sucked into michael and jack’s hail mary to protect diane. Please chance, just look at the evidence.

Chance: I am looking at the evidence. You just said it’s all circumstantial.

Christine: Just because I want our case to be stronger doesn’t mean I doubt its veracity. I believe diane is guilty. What I doubt is that phyllis is somehow alive.

Chance: You don’t think she’d do that?

Christine: Phyllis could be ruthless and vindictive. I know that better than anyone. But all those years ago when diane faked her death, she was desperate, her back was against the wall. She was jobless. She was broke. She had nowhere else to turn. With phyllis, she was just simply ticked off at a few people in our lives. It’s not nearly the same level of panic and fury.

Chance: But you don’t think phyllis would take it that far?

Christine: Chance, I know phyllis would do anything to punish her enemies. I was a firsthand eyewitness to that. But no, I do not believe she would do that at the expense of hurting or losing her children.

Kyle: When do you think we’ll hear back from the lab?

Jack: I paid a hefty bonus to have the results expedited. We should know very soon.

Kyle: I’m glad I found that hairbrush, summer left in my car. If her hair and the strand of red hair we found in the motel show a family connection, then we’ll have our proof that she was in that room and that phyllis is probably alive.

Jack: How’s summer handling the news about phyllis?

Kyle: I honestly don’t know. She’s withdrawn and distant. No matter how hard I try, I can’t get through to her.

Jack: It’s got to be such a confusing time. My heart goes out to her.

Kyle: I want to help her, but there’s just so much I don’t understand.

Jack: Like what?

Kyle: I don’t know, there’s this tension between her and her brother. I caught them in a heated argument earlier. I don’t know if she’s processing the news that phyllis is alive or if she’s so deep in denial that she’s afraid to have hope.

Jack: If these dna results are what I suspect, it’ll go a long way toward turning summer around.

Kyle: Yeah, I hope so. Look, I am trying so hard to have an open mind, but the longer my wife suffers, I’m getting pretty pissed off at phyllis. How can she put her daughter through this? Especially after berating my mom for doing it to me.

Jack: Phyllis was determined that we not let diane back into our lives. But you’re right. It doesn’t begin to justify what she did.

Diane: Well, did you find anything? Please tell me it’s good news.

Jack: Hopefully, we’ll hear something soon.

Tessa: What is it?

Mariah: I don’t know. But you feel it too, don’t you?

Tessa: Yeah, something’s off, but not between us. We’re good, right?

Mariah: No. No, we’re– we’re solid.

Tessa: Yeah, something just feels kind of strange.

Mariah: I don’t know what it is, but it doesn’t feel like it used to. Maybe that it’s we’re more grown up or something. I mean, I’m sitting here debating whether or not to get a drink. I might just get a club soda.

Tessa: Yeah. No, me too. Because what if aria needs us? I mean, we can’t be all boozed up. We have to be responsible adults. Oh, damn, she’s probably missing us right now.

Mariah: Okay, tessa, we are doing it again. We’re making everything about her. What happened to us?

Tessa: Aria happened. Everything is about her because she deserves that.

Sharon: Ooh, aria, look at this. A surprise delivery. Isn’t that exciting? I wonder what it is. Let’s see. Oh, wow, champagne. How fun. And it’s nowhere near my birthday. So, I wonder who this is from? A card. “Memories are what life is made of.”

Devon: I feel closer to you than ever, dad. And I promise to honor your name in every way that I can and always make you proud. I love you.

Tucker: What?

Ashley: Hello there. What a surprise to find you guys here.

Abby: Hi.

Devon: How you guys doing?

Abby: Oh, my gosh. You look so pretty.

Ashley: So do you.

Abby: Wait, this is a coincidence, isn’t it? Right? Or was this planned?

Tucker: I’m innocent in this.

Ashley: Yeah, it was my idea. We didn’t know you were gonna be here.

Devon: Can we join you for a drink?

Ashley: Yeah.

Abby: Sure.

Devon: Why not? Yeah.

Ashley: Great, thank you.

Abby: Well, uh, tucker, I hear you made quite the impression at dominic’s music class today.

Tucker: Oh, man, I had a ball. I was so proud of my talented little grandson.

Ashley: He did. He came home bragging saying that dom is a musical genius, of course.

Abby: Oh, well, no argument for me there.

Tucker: Did you hear that? Oh, and, uh, several of the parents and one of the nannies made a point of telling me what a wonderfully supportive mother you are. So, you’ve made a good impression.

Abby: Well, that’s really cool to hear.

Ashley: I see champagne. Are we crashing a celebration?

Devon: Yeah. Actually, we are celebrating something pretty big.

Ashley: Yeah, what is it?

Devon: As of today, I have, uh, officially changed my name to devon hamilton winters.

Ashley: Wow.

Diane: A strand of red hair? I don’t know. That could be a long shot that the dna will even match. So many people come in and out of a hotel room and even if it did match, would it be enough for christine to drop the case?

Jack: It’s a start. We know that stark checked into this motel after phyllis supposedly died. We have the motel records to prove that. And why did he need another room? He had perfectly good accommodations at the grand phoenix.

Kyle: And if there is a match, there’s no plausible way phyllis’s hair could have gotten in that room after she supposedly died.

Jack: Oh, it’s the lab. I’m gonna bet they have results. This is jack abbott. I used to wait to run my dishwasher

Devon: The thought to change my name really hit me the other night when we were all together here after neil’s tribute.

Ashley: It’s a wonderful way to honor a wonderful, wonderful man.

Devon: Thank you. Thank you. I think both of you had already gone home before I told the family I was gonna do it.

Ashley: Oh, definitely, I would have remembered that.

Devon: Yeah. Well, it’s something that I’ve given a lot of thought to since and it means a lot to me, so.

Tucker: In that case, I couldn’t be happier for you, son. I think taking his name is a fitting tribute to him. Sure that, uh, wherever he is, he’s looking down prouder than ever.

Devon: I appreciate you saying that, thank you.

Ashley: Thank you.

Tucker: Thank you very much.

Ashley: Well.

Devon: Well.

Abby: To devon hamilton winters.

Tucker: Devon hamilton winters.

Devon: To new beginnings.

Tucker: Cheers.

Ashley: Cheers.

Devon: Cheers.

Chance: Well, I guess I can just keep an eye on it for right now.

[ Phone ringing ] It’s jack abbott.

Christine: I’m sure he’s out to sell you on the phyllis is alive theory that I shot down.

Chance: Yeah. I should probably hear him out though, right?

Christine: It’s up to you. Just stay focused on the facts.

Chance: Detective chancellor.

Jack: Chance, I assume that christine has filled you in on the latest development.

Chance: Yeah, that phyllis is alive. Summer told me as well, jack. And I really hope you’re not filling her head with false hope just to help diane. Because that would be extremely cruel and I think she’s been through enough. Don’t you think?

Jack: This isn’t false hope. This is as real as it gets. And I have the dna evidence to prove it. Look, if I can do all of this on my own, just think what an actual first-rate detective could accomplish.

Sharon: Look at this, aria. This is a very expensive bottle of champagne. Now, this is the good stuff. You won’t be able to appreciate it for many, many years, but I wonder who sent this. It’s a very expensive vintage. I need to know who’s being so generous and kind so I can at least thank them.
