Young & The Restless Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Nate: Is it wrong that I get excited when our podcast numbers come in? I know you’re not a fan.
Victoria: Actually, I’ve been listening to it on the treadmill. Yeah. Figured if you were so hot on it, then maybe it was something worth checking out.
Nate: Oh, okay. Um, and?
Victoria: And, well, that true crime series that you recommended is intense. I can see why it attracts so many listeners.
Nate: People can’t get enough of it. The ad sales are a major revenue stream.
Victoria: Well, you can’t argue that. Maybe we should reinvest some of that money into the genre and build on a good thing we have here.
Nate: Already on it.
Victoria: Of course you are. What are you smiling about?
Nate: Victor’s inviting me for drinks.
Nate: Uh, it just says sometime soon. Doesn’t sound pressing. What’s your best guess?
Audra: I think I know. I just saw victor at the athletic club. We were talking about you.
Billy: So then I said, “I quit, I’m out of here. I’m gonna sell my car, buy a motorcycle and hit the road and see where it takes me.” Then, guess what he said to me back?
Billy: Yeah? What did he say? What did you think?
Chelsea: What– what were you saying?
Billy: Nothing vaguely interesting, that’s pretty obvious.
Chelsea: I’m sorry.
Billy: It’s all right.
Chelsea: They released the numbers for the soft rollout for my game last week. You know how omegasphere was quietly testing the waters of their products?
Billy: Oh, yeah. I’m very aware. I’m actually playing and I’m doing pretty well. My– my emotional intelligence rating went from needs improvement to vaguely self-aware.
Chelsea: Hm. So, you’re the one who’s playing.
Billy: Oh, come on. Can’t be that bad.
Chelsea: I have the lowest user numbers for my game. It’s a dud.
Billy: It’s not a dud. It just– it takes time to find an audience. It’s gonna be all right. You know, I wouldn’t worry too much about it. How about I take you out for dinner? We can get your mind off of things?
Chelsea: You don’t have to do that.
Billy: It’s not exactly a chore. I’d like to.
Chelsea: Well, it doesn’t mean you should.
Nikki: Hi, darling.
Victor: Hello, sweetheart.
Victor: There we go.
Nikki: I just checked on sharon and faith and I am beyond upset. That human garbage poisoned faith’s cat and left it on the porch for her to find. She is devastated.
Victor: I’m well aware of it.
Nikki: That man has got to stop terrorizing our family.
Victor: Sweetheart, cameron kirsten will be taken care of.
Nikki: By whom? Because nicholas is not answering his phone and I’m worried he’s going to take matters into his own hand again.
Daniel: I don’t know how much longer I can take this.
Lily: Take what?
Daniel: I can’t say.
Lily: Daniel, how can I help you if I don’t know what’s going on?
Daniel: Things with my mom and my sister are about to explode and I am worried about the fallout.
Nick: Open up, cameron! I know you’re in there.
Cameron: Hi, nick. Took you long enough to find me.
Nick: You wanted to be found? Here I am.
Cameron: Now what? You gonna come in here and you’re gonna teach me a lesson? Boy, you are painfully predictable. We’re done.
Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…
Lily: Okay, what is going on with summer and phyllis and why are you worried?
Daniel: I haven’t been completely honest because I don’t want to risk implicating you.
Lily: Okay, this sounds serious.
Daniel: It is.
[ Phone chiming ] I have a meeting I have to get to, but I’m gonna postpone it because I wanna hear what’s going on.
Daniel: No, no, no. Don’T. I’ve got some place I need to be too. Um… why don’t we meet up later and I’ll tell you everything?
Lily: Are you sure? You just said things are gonna explode.
Daniel: It’s better this way. I’d rather just text you when I’m free.
[ Lily sighing ]
Lily: Okay, I mean, it’s gonna be hard to concentrate on anything else, but I’m here for you, okay?
Billy: Did I do something wrong?
Chelsea: No. No. You have been as sweet and attentive and– and as loving as always.
Billy: Then why don’t you let me take you out for dinner?
Chelsea: Because you’re doing it for the wrong reasons.
Billy: But you do have to eat, don’t you?
Chelsea: It’s not what I mean.
Billy: Okay, well, I guess I don’t follow then.
[ Chelsea sighing ] You’re trying to distract me from my worries. Keep me from thinking about what’s bothering me. You wanna save me. You wanna be my hero again.
Billy: I promise you, I will keep my cape at home. Hey, it’s just dinner.
Chelsea: Dr. Malone and I, we’ve been talking about us.
Billy: I thought we got the green light from her on us, you know, as long as we took our time and kept our eyes wide open.
Chelsea: Well, we’ve been talking about how we initially bonded. You saved me, literally. There’s no way around that.
Billy: Is that a bad thing?
Chelsea: No. But maybe, because of that, you feel like you have to keep saving me and I would never want you to feel that way. I’m– I’m doing well. I’m doing great, actually, but if I’m not, I never want you to feel like it’s because of something you did or didn’t do.
Billy: So, I’m not helping? I don’T…
Chelsea: You’ve been amazing, but it’s not your job to fix me. And even there’s a tiny part of you that feels like it is, we have to talk about it and figure out how to handle it.
Victoria: So, you think that you have better insights than I do as to why my father wants to have a drink with nate?
Audra: Oh, not at all. Um, it’s not a competition. I just, uh, thought I had an explanation and it would be valuable to share it.
Victoria: Please do.
Audra: Well, I spoke with victor after you two headed up to the corporate suite at the athletic club. You know, to go over those figures.
Victoria: Yes, I remember.
Audra: Well, victor seemed really interested in your working relationship. You know, he was quizzing me about it, and of course, I went out of my way to sing nate’s praises as a great boss.
Victoria: As well you should.
Audra: Yeah, well, we were talking, you two came downstairs and left together. That’s when he got really interested. You know, I talked up how inspiring the both of you are as leaders, how in sync you are, so I’m sure that’s why he wants to meet with nate. After the glowing report he got from me, I’m sure he wants to congratulate you on earning your employee’s respect. He probably wants to give you a bonus.
Victoria: Wow, you really do know how to read a situation, don’t you? That’s exactly right. That’s exactly the kind of effusive praise and gesture that my father is known for.
Nate: Thanks for putting in a good word.
[ Nate sighing ]
Nate: That was audra’s not so subtle way of saying victor saw us coming down the stairs and leave the athletic club together.
Victoria: Yeah, no kidding. So, what if he did?
Nate: Well, it does shed a new light on the timing of his drink offer.
Victoria: How so?
Nate: Does victor really want to sit down with the ceo of newman media, or is this a test of the new guy in his daughter’s life?
Victoria: Being tested by my father isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I think that means that he is taking you seriously. In my book, that’s a good sign.
Victor: So, in other words, you’re worried nicholas will go too far with this cameron kirsten slimeball?
Nikki: Yes, I am. He’s done it in the past and I– I know he’s working with chance and our security team to find him, but I also know his history with that maniac.
Nikki: He will do anything to protect sharon and faith.
Victor: A man must do what he feels he has to do to protect his family, that’s all.
Nikki: Yes, but you and i both know what instincts he’s having right now and after what cameron did to that poor cat, if nicholas finds him, he’s gonna lead with his fists–
Nikki: Not his head.
Victor: I’ll be there to back him up, if need be.
[ Nikki sighing ]
Nick: You wipe that smug look off your face, you coward. You’re terrorizing a mother and her daughter. You killed an innocent animal. What’s the matter with you? How’d they ever let you out of prison?
Cameron: I don’t know, man. The justice system, it’s a mystery, right? As far as killing innocent animals, I– I got no idea what you’re gassing on about. I’m here for one reason and one reason only, sharon.
Nick: Oh, you’re gonna stay away from her.
Cameron: Hm, not your call. You’re not married anymore. She’s fair game.
Nick: Are you insane? She despises you.
Cameron: I can change that. I think she’s warming up to me already. You’re in my personal space, nick.
Nick: You shut your mouth. Here’s how this is gonna play out. See, I told the police and newman security exactly who you are and what you’re capable of. If you so much as smile at sharon or faith, they’re gonna haul your ass back to prison before you can say “parole violation.”
Cameron: Empty threat. You got no grounds.
Nick: Your track record is grounds enough.
Cameron: I did my time. I’m reformed and I’ve got the parole board’s stamp of approval to prove it.
Nick: Sharon is not the same woman she was all those years ago when you manipulated her. She’s stronger, more confident and fearless now.
Cameron: Just as beautiful as the day I met her. And you are not gonna get between us this time. I promise you that. What are you gonna do? You gonna hit me? Because I got a legal right to defend myself, nick, so you go ahead. You take your best shot. Do it. Do it. Hit me!
Nick: Yeah, next time, it’ll be for real.
[ Cameron laughing ]
Today, my friend you did it, you did it, you did it…
Chelsea: I’ve upset you.
Billy: No, it’s okay. It’s all good.
Chelsea: It’s my fault. We should’ve had this conversation sooner.
Billy: So now we’re having a conversation on how to handle the situation. Let me ask you honestly. Um, do you feel like I have a need to play hero?
Chelsea: It’s not an indictment. I’m not saying you’re doing anything wrong.
Billy: But you’re talking about it with your therapist, so it’s bothering you, right? Or it’s bothering her.
Chelsea: I think you are wonderful and I adore you, but yeah, I think it bothers me a little bit that your instinct, if something’s bothering me, is to distract me.
Billy: It’s not– I mean, do you blame me for wanting to see you smile?
Chelsea: Yeah, but you can’t stop me from ever having an unhappy thought.
Billy: I feel like that’s a very natural thing, you know. I care about you, so I want to see you joyful. I want to see you happy.
Chelsea: Of course, but it’s not realistic to expect that all the time and you have to trust me that if I’m having an unpleasant thought, I can handle it, and if I can’t handle it, I’ll talk to you about it.
Billy: Okay, well, um, I gotta be honest, that does kind of bother me a little bit.
Chelsea: Do you wanna discuss it?
Billy: I do, but, um, look, I’m not dodging. I’m really not. I have to go meet victoria. We gotta talk about the kids, so, uh… can we just pick this up later?
Chelsea: Of course.
Billy: Okay. Bye. Hey.
Daniel: Hey. [ Sighing ] Sorry I’m late. Been a hell of a day already.
Chelsea: I think I know the reason. It’s me, isn’t it. My game is a flop.
Nate: I should be getting back to my office.
Victoria: Well, before you do that, let’s strategize about this drink that you’re gonna be having with my father.
Nate: Well, I was thinking rye, neat.
[ Victoria laughing ]
Victoria: Let’s figure out what it is he wants and what your approach will be.
Nate: I appreciate your offer, but I’ve been through a lot over the years with victor newman. I’m not worried about a little one-on-one time with him.
Victoria: Well, you know, plenty of men would be unnerved by an invite from victor newman.
Nate: I’m not your ordinary guy.
Victoria: No, you are not and it is undeniable sexy how this doesn’t throw you, not even in the least.
Nate: Mm. I’m finding that few things intimidate me lately. It makes the possibilities seem endless. And I have you to thank for that.
Lily: Well, no, I don’t care if the gaming bloggers want stats now, they’ll get them when I saw say so. Okay. Hi.
Lily: Um, I haven’t seen you, since, uh…
Billy: Since our very awkward double date?
Lily: Yes. That was interesting with the kids, too.
Billy: Yeah, that was weird, even by my standards.
[ Lily chuckling ]
Lily: It was fine though, I mean, once we all loosened up.
Billy: Yeah. So, how are you and– and daniel doing?
Lily: Uh… slow and steady. How are you and chelsea?
Billy: Same-ish. Maybe a little bit more wobbly than steady.
Lily: I mean, I don’t want to pry, but is– is everything okay?
Billy: Yeah, everything’s fine. You know, I just spent most of my life waiting for other people to solve my problems and now, I’m swinging in the other direction.
Lily: Right. Fixing problems you haven’t been asked to.
Billy: Problems, situations, people.
Lily: Well, I am happy that you’re thinking about it.
Billy: Yeah, not sure I would have if certain people didn’t bring it to my attention.
Lily: Now, you just gotta find that balance between saving the world and falling apart.
Billy: Seems easy, huh?
[ Lily laughing ]
Lily: One of the hardest balancing acts I know.
Billy: Something to aspire to.
Cameron: You’re gonna wanna to get some ice on that, sport. That’s gonna leave a bruise.
Nick: You’re gonna check out of this hotel and you’ll be gone in the morning.
Cameron: You’re not hearing me, nick. You’re gonna have to drag me out of here in a bag! I got no intention of leaving. I got things to do, women to seduce. And guess what? I’m free to do that. I have broken no law and I haven’t hurt anyone or anything, be it human, feline or inanimate.
Nick: You have been harassing sharon since you got here.
Cameron: Oh, come on, man. I– I’ve seen her once in the coffee shop and you were there for most of it.
Nick: Which is why I know exactly what your intentions are.
Cameron: Hey, you know what? It– it’s kind of sweet how protective you are of your ex-wife. A little sad because she no longer wants or loves you, but super sweet.
Nick: You are going to stay away from sharon and faith and you will be gone by the morning.
Cameron: Or what?
Nick: You don’t want to find out. My a1c was up here; now, it’s down with rybelsus.
Victoria: Well, I would like to continue this discussion, but I have a meeting.
Nate: Oh, anything I should tag along for?
Victoria: Unfortunately, no. It’s personal, it’s not business.
Nate: And here I thought I was both.
Victoria: Aw, you very much are. I won’t be long, I promise. And feel free to use the office. Knowing that you’re waiting for me here will give me an excellent reason to hurry back.
Audra: Well, well. You don’t seem to be wasting any time, are you?
Nate: What do you want, audra?
Audra: Well, just to admire how you operate. The fact that you and victoria ever get any work done is impressive.
Daniel: I promise that my poor mood has nothing to do with your game. It will find its audience, I am not worried. I mean, I’m dealing with some other stuff and its personal, it’s not professional.
Chelsea: Of course. You’re still grieving the loss of your mom. And here I am making it about myself. I’m so sorry for– for projecting my insecurities onto you.
Daniel: Don’t apologize. Look, you just launched your baby out into the world. Of course you’re gonna be feeling vulnerable.
Chelsea: It’s crazy, right? How a game can make you feel so protective? How things like user reports can make you feel so vulnerable and insecure?
Daniel: Mm, I’ve seen the numbers from the soft launch. They’re not through the roof.
Chelsea: Yeah. That’s putting it nicely.
Daniel: Mm-hmm. But we are getting good word of mouth on social media.
Chelsea: You are?
Daniel: We are. Yeah, it’s like our mental health consultant said, people, they are more willing to talk about their emotional struggles online, and it seems like they are seeking guidance outside of traditional avenues. We’re poised to be that.
Chelsea: How can you tell?
Daniel: I was monitoring this discussion thread this morning and people were already pointing to your game as a positive tool for dealing with anxiety.
Chelsea: Huh. Is it ironic that I’ve been too anxious to look?
Daniel: I totally get that. Um, besides, you know, people online, they can be vicious, but take a look at this.
Chelsea: “This game has helped me practice how I talk to my mom about how upset it makes me when she yells at me.” Hm.
Daniel: You know what that means?
Chelsea: It means we’re actually helping people.
Daniel: We are actually helping people and that is worth a hell of a lot more than numbers.
Victoria: Hi. Thanks for meeting me.
Billy: Of course. You said this is about the kids. Is everybody okay?
Victoria: Oh, yeah. Everybody’s fine. Um, well, we were talking at breakfast and uh, the kids are both very excited about camp.
Billy: Yeah. I’m trying not to take it personal that they can’t wait to get away from us for a whole summer.
Victoria: Well, you should brace yourself because johnny brought up boarding school.
Billy: And I hope you assured him that we don’t plan on sending him this year.
Victoria: Oh, no, not exactly. He wants to go. At first, I thought he was kidding, but uh, he’s not, and then katie got all excited about the idea, so I told them that I would talk to you about it.
Billy: So, today’s the day I find out that nobody actually needs me anymore.
Victoria: What? Where’s that coming from?
Billy: Don’t worry about it. Um, look, you know how I feel about boarding school.
Victoria: Oh, yeah. You hate it.
Billy: Yeah. My own personal experience wasn’t exactly warm and fuzzy.
Victoria: Well, this is about johnny and katie, billy. It’s not about you.
Billy: You’re right. You’re right. And if this is what they want and we visit often, then I’m not gonna say no.
Victoria: So, is that a yes?
Billy: It’s a reluctant one, but I guess this is, you know, good continuity from last year and it is a great place for both their passions.
Victoria: Yes, yes. That is exactly how I feel. Johnny would be able to continue the coding classes that he loves and our daughter has straight as, so she can spend all of her free time horseback riding.
Billy: And you’ve really thought about this. Where’s all this enthusiasm coming from?
Victoria: Well, it’s what the kids want.
Billy: You sure this doesn’t have anything to do with your budding relationship with nate? When you really need to sleep.
Announcer: The young and the restless will continue. Sweet pillows of softness!
Victoria: I hope that you’re not implying that I wanna ship the kids off because it would give me more time to date because you are way too smart to say something so stupid, billy.
Billy: That’s never stopped me before. But you’re right, it’s none of my business.
Victoria: Was that supposed to be an apology?
Billy: Vic, I know that you would never put some guy above our kids and I’m sorry, that was a jerk thing to say.
Victoria: Yes, it was. Where did that come from?
Billy: I don’t know.
[ Billy chuckling ] You know, earlier today, I got chastised for doing something that I thought was the right thing to do and now, I’m taking it out on you.
Victoria: Me seeing nate isn’t gonna be a problem for us, right? Because I’m not sending the kids away, I’m just letting them gO. Those are two very different things. You know, I– I wanna give them the best and if that includes some new school adventure, even though it breaks my heart because I’m not gonna see them every day, I wanna give them that.
Billy: No, you’re right. And it is gonna be hard, but it’s the right thing to do for them.
Victoria: And where did this come from? That nobody needs you anymore? I mean, the kids need both of us, just in different ways.
Billy: Now, I feel really bad because you’re being so nice and I was an ass.
Victoria: Look, holding on to the kids just because it makes us feel better to have them around isn’t gonna do them any good. We have to give them space, and then, we’re their safety net if they ever need us.
Daniel: Chelsea, this game, it was never about zombies or unicorns. It’s about finding real solutions to human problems. That means seeing things from a new perspective. You know, real change? It’s hard. You have to trust, you have to commit, it takes time and it can be scary.
Chelsea: I can attest to that.
Daniel: Yeah. You’re a living, breathing example. I mean, you’ve taken all your pain and all your struggles and you’ve turned it into something positive. Omegasphere.
[ Chelsea laughing ]
Daniel: I hope you’re proud of what you’ve accomplished.
Chelsea: Well, I’m getting there, thanks to you. I mean, you should be proud too, you know. You took a chance on me when not many people would have. You’re a good guy who wants to do good things.
Nick: Your security team’s tip was right. Cameron was at the athletic club. He needs to be watched 24/7.
Victor: How did you know that?
Nick: I went and, uh, confronted him there.
Nikki: Oh, my god. This is exactly what I was worried about.
Victor: Did you touch him?
Nick: No, sir. Not a hair on his head.
Victor: There, you see.
Nikki: Oh, my god. Your knuckles.
Nick: The wall wasn’t so lucky.
Victor: Right cross? Uh-huh. Well then, he got lucky.
Nick: I’m sure I got his attention.
Nikki: Yeah, and maybe a broken hand.
Nick: I’m fine, mom.
[ Phone ringing ]
Nikki: It’s the office. I have to take this. Please promise me you won’t do anything rash until I deal with this.
Victor: Okay, there, sweetheart.
Nick: What happened to that security guard who had his uniform stolen?
Victor: That loser? Stuffed in a closet. Stripped down to his underwear, for heaven’s sake. I fired his ass.
[ Phone chiming ]
Victor: Oh. I spoke with nate hastings about having a drink with him. Um… okay.
Nick: So, our family is dealing with a stalker, but you have time to go and socialize with an opportunist?
Victor: You’re saying that whilst being involved with an opportunist?
Nick: What does that mean?
Victor: Sally spectra is a noose drawn around your neck. Don’t you see it? Especially now that she’s pregnant with your brother’s child.
Nick: You have no idea what you’re talking about, all right? Cameron’s a threat to our family right now, but you’re wasting time taking shots at the mother of your next grandkid.
Victor: And cameron kirsten will be dealt with. Sally spectra, from now on, will be part of our lives. Ever wonder why kit kats are so delightfully crispy?
[ Daniel sighing ]
Lily: Hi. Oh, wow.
Daniel: Do you have any idea how much I appreciate you?
Lily: I mean, that hug gave me an idea, but I feel like something else is going on.
Daniel: I met with chelsea, talked about the early response to her game.
Lily: Oh, god. I know. I meant to call her and tell her not to look at downloads or active player numbers and just focus on the good the game is doing.
Daniel: I told her the same thing, but I bet she would appreciate hearing it from you too.
Lily: Yeah. I’ll call her, for sure, but hey, what is going on with phyllis and summer and why have you been keeping it from me?
[ Daniel sighing ]
Daniel: As much as I want to be completely honest with you, telling you compromises both of us, so if you don’t want anything to do with it, I’ll just keep it to myself.
Lily: Hey, whatever it is, it’s okay. You can tell me.
Daniel: My mother is hiding out at a room at the athletic club. Cops could be at her door at any second.
Chelsea: Okay, well, it’s definitely not what I wanted to hear, but thank you for letting me know. Bye.
Billy: What happened?
[ Chelsea sighing ]
Chelsea: That was connor’s teacher. He, apparently, is not raising his hand in class and he’s keeping to himself during free time. She thinks he’s shutting down.
Chelsea: I thought he was pulling himself out of this mood. Apparently, it’s just gotten worse.
Billy: Well, I’m dying to figure out a way to fix this, or at least, distract you from being worried, but I won’T.
Chelsea: Thank you.
Billy: Instead, I will ask you, do you need advice? Reassurance? Or just someone to vent to?
Chelsea: You have given me enough reassurance just by making it clear you trust me to handle this on my own.
Billy: I’m learning. It’s an imperfect process.
Chelsea: Right? We’re doing our best. It’s all we can do. So, I think I’m just gonna talk to connor tonight and try to get through to him and maybe some ice cream will help.
Billy: Now that is a good idea.
Chelsea: Uh-huh. One step at a time, right? One day at a time. Thank you for helping.
Billy: I don’t feel like I did anything.
Chelsea: You listened. And now, let me return the favor. What can I do for you?
Nate: You might want to work on your discretion. You shouldn’t talk about your bosses at the office like that.
Audra: Uh, you and I have an agreement. I didn’t think I needed to pretend like I don’t know what’s going on.
Nate: You don’t, with me, but you might want to back off with being so blatant with victoria.
Audra: Well, I think she enjoys a sparring partner. If she respects me as someone who will speak her mind, I’ll be well positioned to take over when she promotes you.
[ Nate chuckling ]
Nate: I appreciate your positive thinking about my ascendance, as well as your own.
Audra: Like I said, we’re in this together.
Nate: By the way, I used the information you shared about the tech team’s video production capabilities to impress victoria with an idea I had for newman’s real estate division.
Audra: Clever. Making newman media useful to newman enterprises. Oh, and I looked at those upcoming negotiations with our ad buyer you– you mentioned and I was able to work some magic.
Nate: So, our mutual aid club is working.
Audra: Which is why I wanna get back to what I walked in on earlier: Victor’s drink invitation. He’s on to you.
Nate: We’re not concerned.
Audra: Well, he may not mind your relationship, but you don’t want him thinking that, you know, you are slacking on the job and encouraging victoria to do the same.
Nate: Victor doesn’t strike me as a clock watcher. He’s a man about results, not hours behind a desk.
Audra: Hm. If you say so.
Nate: Now, nick newman, on the other hand…
Audra: Yeah, he could definitely be an issue. You know, it’s clear he considers you a threat and that is not a man who will back off easily.
Nick: What is your real issue with sally? Because dad, this goes far beyond the protective father thing.
Victor: It’s very simple. You’re wasting your time and energy. You have other things to worry about.
Nick: Dad, you are the one who is fixated on this pregnant woman who has done nothing to you. You need to be focused on the threat that cameron poses.
Victor: And I am, and I will deal with that bastard, but you forget about sally spectra. You start paying attention to sharon and faith, who really need you. I’m here for the dunkin’ run, campaign, commercial.
Billy: What makes you think that I need something?
Chelsea: I can see the concern in your eyes.
Billy: I guess I’m a little knocked off my game. You know, it’s– it’s bad enough that the kids are gonna be gone at summer camp all– all summer, but… now victoria told me that the kids want to go to boarding school next fall and I’m sad and I’m confused because they don’t need me in the same way anymore.
Chelsea: Billy, that is hard. I’m sorry. And I wish I could fix it for you, but–
Billy: But you won’T.
Chelsea: No, but I will ask you a question that a very wise friend recently asked me. Do you want advice? Reassurance? Or just to vent?
Billy: Definitely the last two, with a double scoop of chocolate chip mint ice cream.
Chelsea: Oh, my treat.
Chelsea: Let’s go talk.
Victoria: Oh, hi. I’m glad you’re still here.
Nate: Then, why do you sound on edge?
[ Victoria sighing ]
Victoria: Well, my meeting was with billy and, um, we almost got into an argument. Well, we worked it out, but he made a jab that kinda got under my skin.
Nate: Why do I suspect it was about me?
Victoria: Well, it wasn’t about you, specifically. It was more the idea of us. I think that what we have is confusing to people. They can’t categorize it, so they– they don’t understand it.
Nate: They’re not wrong.
Victoria: What do you mean by that?
Nate: To some, it might look like we’re just colleagues with benefits.
Victoria: I consider you much more than that.
Nate: So, maybe we make it official. How about I take you on a date? And not another one of our working meetings.
Victoria: Are you serious? Like, cocktails and dinner?
Nate: Maybe even dessert and dancing.
Victoria: All right. You’re on.
Nick: You know, you just don’t understand my relationship with sally. That’s fine. Just keep it to yourself, all right? I’ve had it up to here with your judgment.
Nick: Yes, sir. Excuse me. I’ve got a lot to do.
Nikki: What happened?
Victor: Hi, sweetheart. Um… to put it simply, our son is… spread too thin. He has a lot of things to deal with.
Nikki: Well, we both agree on that. I just don’t want his temper to get him into trouble.
Cameron: Jimmy, hey. Got a job for you. This one’s gonna require a face-to-face. Bring your right hook, you’re gonna need it.
[ Cameron breathing deeply ]
