Traci: Well, you know me, I’m always up for a good book tour.
[ Traci laughing ] I just love getting out and meeting my readers.
Zelda: So, we’ll set up some virtual appearances too, for those who aren’t in major markets.
Traci: Zelda, what would you think about doing some of the smaller towns this time. You know, just to sort of mix it up a little bit?
Zelda: You know what? That’s true because some of the independents can draw big crowds, especially if they’re in college towns.
Traci: Good. Because I could use a little break from genoa city right now. Actually, a big break.
Zelda: You want to tell me what’s going on?
Traci: Oh, no, no, it’s nothing.
Zelda: Traci, how long have I been your agent? I mean, we grew up in this business together. I know when something’s bothering you.
Traci: Everything is fine, really.
Zelda: You know that you don’t need to fake it with me. We’re way past that, aren’t we? Talk to me. What’s wrong?
[ Zelda laughing ]
Traci: I’m just a little worried that my family might be imploding.
Kyle: I’m on my way out. Kind of in a hurry.
Summer: I– I was just wondering if you’d heard the story about the– the hamster at harrison’s day camp. He was so funny when he was telling me about it.
Kyle: I heard the whole story as I was tucking him in last night.
Summer: Oh, must have been after I said goodnight to him.
Kyle: I assume so.
Summer: Hey, have you had breakfast? Because there’s muffins in the kitchen?
Kyle: I’m not hungry.
[ Summer sighing ]
Summer: Kyle, can we please talk before you go to the office?
Ashley: I just wanted to make you aware that I’ve reached out to a couple of additional board members. I let them know that I think diane is a threat to the stability of this company.
Billy: Is that so?
Ashley: Mm-hmm, they agreed.
Billy: I’m sure they did. You can be very persuasive. What exactly did they agree with?
Ashley: We need to be proactive. We need to stop diane in her tracks. Before she can cause some real damage.
Jack: Also, get pr to start working on a press release for diane’s new role as chief talent officer. Put a paragraph in there about brenda, who is retiring at the end of the month, how much we appreciate her, how much we wish her well.
Emily: Oh, should I book a photo session for diane? Updated headshots?
Jack: Absolutely. It’s time the business world was surprised there was a new face in the c-suite at jabot.
Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by… look in that mirror and ask,
Zelda: Imploding, huh? I mean, I’m surprised. I always thought the abbotts were such a tight-knit bunch.
[ Traci laughing ]
Traci: Not always.
Zelda: Well, you know, every family member that I’ve met of yours over the years have always been so gracious, especially your father. But you know, then again, you guys are all high-powered, creative, independent thinkers and that can stir up conflict.
Traci: Yes, it can.
Zelda: Okay, so let me guess. Uh… more drama between ashley and jack.
[ Traci chuckling ]
Traci: On the nose. It is endless. All right, this particular battle is over their romantic partners.
Zelda: Tucker “love ’em, and leave ’em” mccall? And diane “not dead after all” jenkins? I mean, I am a huge fan of talia morgan. I never miss her articles.
Traci: I see.
Zelda: So, what is the issue?
[ Traci sighing ]
Traci: Jack doesn’t trust tucker and he thinks ashley is being played the fool. Ashley doesn’t trust diane and thinks jack is an even bigger fool, and it has gotten ugly.
Zelda: How ugly are we talking?
Traci: Ashley is staging a coup in plain sight.
Zelda: At jabot? You are kidding.
Traci: I’m not kidding. Um, she thinks that jack is going to, um, promote diane into a powerful position where she could potentially hurt the company. Now, I don’t see how that’s even possible, but if he does, she’s going to go to the board and have him removed. And I assume have her installed as ceo.
Zelda: It sounds like a nightmare. Is there a book in it?
[ Traci laughing ]
Traci: Don’t even joke about that. You know, the real punchline is that ashley is doing the exact same thing to tucker. She wants to, um, give him a powerful position so that she has an ally on the inside and it is making me crazy.
Zelda: Well, I can see why.
Traci: You know, zelda, I sort of always felt like I was the peacemaker. I was the voice of reason inside the family, but this time, I’m telling you, I don’t know what to do. I mean, this battle is so far out of control. I’m afraid that if it drags on much longer, we’re all going to be scarred for life.
Jack: Emily, read me the last three bullet points.
Emily: “Diane’s past career as an award-winning, internationally renowned architect, an integral member of jabot’s pr department, the mother of kyle abbott, ceo of marchetti.”
Emily: Should we include mention of your upcoming wedding?
Jack: Yeah, absolutely. That’s an excellent idea, emily. Yeah, jabot is an abbott family business. Diane is about to become a vital part of both.
Billy: What I would like to say is, “I appreciate your devotion to the company.” However, I’m going to point out that we’ve had more conversations about this existential threat from diane than we’ve had on, you know, r&D.
Ashley: Was I just reprimanded?
Billy: No. It’s a statement of fact. Ashley, diane is not a comic book supervillain, okay? She doesn’t have special powers. She doesn’t even have a seat on the board–
Billy: Our board is made up of family members. They’re abbotts and lauren and a few others who you claim are now on your side.
Ashley: They’re on my side because they’re committed to protecting the company from the havoc that diane always brings with her.
Billy: No, I understand that’s– that’s how you see it. But there are checks and balances in place to make sure that something like that doesn’t happen, and I can’t imagine diane waking up one day, and wanting to burn down–
Ashley: I can imagine her doing anything, okay? All right, I can. That gloria, do you remember her? She caused a lot of damage.
Billy: Yes, I do. And jabot is fine because of those checks and balances.
Ashley: It’s the balancing part that I’m talking about, billy, all right? We’ve got parties that are willing and able to act pre-emptively to prevent another gloria from happening. That’s all, okay? That’s all.
Billy: Diane is not gloria, all right? I don’t think she would tamper with the product the way that gloria–
Ashley: She’s worse than gloria and I shudder to think about what she’s capable of.
Billy: Why would diane want to destroy the company? If she marries jack, she’s got a vested interest in its success.
Ashley: It’s assuming that the marriage would be legitimate and not some kind of long-game con that she’s running.
Billy: Okay. Why don’t you just tell me who you’ve talked to?
Ashley: Abby. Abby. Okay? I have her support. Full stop. Traci.
[ Billy laughing ] No, traci. Well, granted she wants to keep peace in the family, but the only way to keep peace is to keep diane far away from this company. It’s only a matter of time before traci comes around to my way of thinking.
Billy: Congratulations, ashley. You got one definite who just happens to be your daughter, and then a “maybe-kinda.” It’s a hell of a coalition you’re building.
Kyle: I’m late for a meeting, and really, what is there to even discuss?
Summer: Us. Everything that’s happened, how we’re going to get through it? Kyle, you’ve got to know how sorry I am for everything. Hey, your– your mom has forgiven me. Did she tell you that?
Kyle: She mentioned it.
Summer: Well, I’m hoping that you can forgive me too. Look, I know there’s no excuse for anything that I did. I just miss you so much.
Kyle: None of this is us talking. It’s you trying to convince me to let go of my anger and accept what you did, but that’s not going to happen with one conversation. It’s going to take time. Maybe a lot of time, if I can even get there. So, I repeat, what is there to say?
Summer: Kyle, I love you so much. I was afraid, I was confused when my mom first reached out to me.
Kyle: Okay, if you were so confused and afraid, why didn’t you come to me? You slept in another room for weeks while I begged you to talk to me, confide in me. You could have let me comfort you for your loss. Hell, you could have shared the same bed so I could hold you at night, but you couldn’t do that. And I accepted it. I put your feelings first ahead of my own. So, I’m going now and I assume you will give me the same time and space I gave you. As someone living with type 2 diabetes,
Summer: Kyle, I just–
[ Kyle sighing ]
Kyle: What’s that?
Summer: Nothing. There’s nothing that needs to be said right now. I’m sorry. I’ll give you all the time and space you need.
[ Door clicks closed ]
Diane: I didn’t mean to eavesdrop.
Summer: You heard all that?
Diane: Yeah, I just feel terrible that the two of you are going through this.
Summer: So, what do you think? Have I lost him?
Traci: I’m just so tempted to get on an airplane and fly to new york just to get away from the tension in the house.
Zelda: Then, why don’t you do it? Come to manhattan with me, and then you can write about the drama instead of living it.
Traci: It is so tempting, but running away is not the answer. I have got to fix this. Or at least try. You know, jack and ashley always felt that jabot was daddy’s legacy. It’s not. It’s the family. Our family is john abbott’s legacy, and I’ve got to find a way to make jack and ashley focus on that. I love you so much and I don’t want to go away again. Please, won’t you let me stay?
John: Well, will you do plan to continue school?
Traci: Well, of course I do. I– I just want to be around my family and my friends.
[ John laughing ]
John: You know, honey, I had hoped you’d make this decision.
John: Yes. I have loved having you girls home. I mean, for the first time, all of our family together, after all these years, I dreaded the idea of you leaving.
[ Traci chuckling ]
Traci: Why didn’t you tell me?
John: Well, because you made your decision. I didn’t want to influence it.
Traci: And I didn’t want to disappoint you.
[ Traci laughing ]
John: You know something, young lady?
John: I think we got here failure to communicate.
[ Both laughing ]
Traci: Dad, I think we ought to talk more.
John: Especially, since you’re going to be here now. Let’s do that.
Traci: Oh, we will. I promise we will. Thanks for being so understanding, dad.
John: Have I told you something lately? Awful good having you home again.
[ Both laughing ]
Traci: Well, it’s wonderful to be home. Especially since I have a super neat dad.
John: Super neat?
Traci: [ Laughing ] Yeah. Super, super neat.
John: I love you.
[ Both chuckling ]
[ Traci sighing in relief ]
[ Traci sighing ]
Zelda: You know, I have watched you write your way out of a million tricky situations. Now, you are going to have to tackle this one the exact same way. Head on. Underneath that sweet, measured personality of yours is a will of iron.
[ Traci laughing ]
Traci: I don’t know about that, but you’re right. I will do it. I– I will try to find a way for– for jack and ashley to understand that peace is the only way, even if I have to slap them upside the head with it to make them see.
Zelda: That’s the spirit. That’s it.
[ Traci laughing ]
Ashley: You need to check yourself, billy, before you dismiss me and my concerns.
Billy: I understand your concerns, ash, I just don’t agree with them. And I’m going to double down on what I said the last time we had this conversation. You try to oust jack from this company, I’m gonna fight you on it.
Ashley: You’re such a kiss ass, aren’t you? When you’re so beholden to your big brother for letting you back in, you’re sitting in your big chair, you’re willing to ignore the wolf that’s waiting outside the door, just waiting to sink her fangs into this company?
Billy: You gotta stop, ash. You’re embarrassing yourself.
Ashley: What’s embarrassing, is your ignorance, billy.
Billy: This is out of control. And I’m going to believe this is tucker pushing you to this extreme, getting you all riled up about something that hasn’t happened. Ashley, he’s using you.
Ashley: Okay, so the chauvinist is back, right? Because god forbid your sister has an opinion that’s valid on her own.
Billy: I just expect better from you, okay? Either that or he’s just playing into this whole worry about diane. He’s making you believe that it’s you and him against the world and it’s total bs.
Ashley: What’s bs is every word that’s coming out of your mouth.
Billy: Okay, so, let’s just run this back for a second, okay? Let’s say that you succeed and you get jack kicked out of this company. And who’s next? Me? Because I’m beholden? Then, who’s going to run the day-to-day? Abby and traci? No. Kyle and summer? No. They run a subsidiary. So, that leaves you and tucker, the king and queen of the castle. Which works out perfect for tucker, right? It’s exactly what he wanted.
Ashley: Oh, my god.
Billy: You remember that he’s the one that asked diane to funnel him confidential financial records, which diane refused to do.
Ashley: Please, just stop! You have no concept at all of my relationship with tucker!
Billy: What I do know is that tucker has wanted this company since the day he stepped foot back in this city and he still wants it. So let me just tell you right now, I’m not gonna let that happen. I am team jack all the way.
Jack: I’m relieved to know I can count on you against our sister’s relentless onslaught.
Ashley: Look at this little boys club. Such a joke.
Jack: I think the joke’s on you for allowing tucker to worm his way back into your heart.
Ashley: Really? Well, you got sucked into diane, didn’t you? Just like that.
Billy: No, it’s you. Tucker has suckered you.
Ashley: You know, I’ve had enough of you, billy. Why don’t you just take a walk?
Jack: Who the hell are you talking to like that?
Ashley: You don’t really have any business, do you? Sitting behind that desk, pretending that you know how to run a company, considering your long history of poor judgment calls. Didn’t you pass out when you were 16 in the snow? You almost died because you were drunk. Granted you were just a kid, but not that long ago, didn’t you lose the what, the company yacht in a poker game? I mean, seriously, billy, I don’t think you should even be a part of this conversation, so…
Billy: You know I disagreed with her, jack, so, I guess, that’s what I deserve.
Jack: I’m afraid our sister is so blinded by her hatred she can’t think straight. Pretty soon, she’s going to come to regret that.
Ashley: Was that a threat?
Jack: You take that anyway you would like it, ashley.
Ashley: Okay, well, you’re going to be sorry for invalidating me, jack, because you are so brainwashed you don’t know what the hell you’re doing anymore.
[ Phone chiming ]
Billy: That’s from traci calling a family meeting. No excuses. You get the same thing.
Ashley: Yeah. What happened?
Jack: You think it’s harrison?
Ashley: We gotta go. Come on. And what kind of milk?
Diane: Summer, I’m so sorry. You must be feeling so helpless and– and scared.
Summer: I shouldn’t have said anything.
Diane: Why not?
Summer: ‘Cause I wish that I didn’t feel the need to go to my mother-in-law about any of this.
[ Diane chuckling ]
Diane: Well, I– I want you to know that I’m here for you. However I can be. No judgment.
Summer: Diane, if you… meant what you said about feeling… responsible about what was set in motion, then maybe, this is a way to make amends. Help me and kyle through this. Look, when I look into his eyes, I can see that he’s in so much pain and… he’s so disillusioned with me. He’s so cold.
Diane: Well, jack has looked at me that way many times over the years, and when someone you care about is disappointed in you, it’s– it’s heartbreaking. But that’s the past for us. And I am hoping that will soon be the case for you and kyle.
Summer: But the difference is– is jack kept his distance from you until you earned his trust. I had kyle’s trust. And I broke it. I mean, I– I– I shut him out. I– I didn’t trust him with my secrets, with my feelings. I– I put my mom first.
Diane: Well, I have spoken to kyle and I will speak to him again because– [ Sighing ] Look, I understand why you made the choices you did and I am not going to hold it against you. This– this feud I have with phyllis started years ago, before you were even born. But now, it seems like our children are suffering because of it. So believe me when I say that despite everything, I will do whatever I can to help you and kyle find each other again. Find the love you share. This family has had enough conflict and chaos and it– it just needs more love like yours and kyle’S.
Summer: Thank you, diane. Thank you. Okay, I need to pull myself together before I go into the office.
Diane: Of course.
[ Diane sighing ]
[ Both laughing ]
Diane: Oh, good morning.
Traci: Um, may i introduce zelda? This is my agent from new york.
Zelda: It’s a pleasure to meet you, diane.
Zelda: Now, really, I am so happy to meet you. I handle fiction, not memoirs, but I suspect you have got one hell of a book in you.
Diane: Whereas I keep hoping people are getting tired of hearing about me. It sure would make my life a lot easier.
Zelda: No, not at all.
Zelda: Oh, you must be summer.
Zelda: I’m zelda, traci’s agent. I have heard all about you from traci. All good.
[ Both chuckling ]
Summer: Okay, well, that’s nice to hear. What’s going on?
Traci: Oh, just a shot in the dark, but I have to try.
Diane: Try what?
Traci: Um– oh.
Jack: Zelda winford. I didn’t know you were in town.
Zelda: You know me. Always full of surprises.
Jack: You always are. Excuse me. Uh, everything all right? Uh, when I got your text, I worried that it was harrison.
Diane: No, he’s upstairs with the nanny, playing with cars.
Jack: So then the urgent family meeting is–
Traci: Are billy and ashley right behind you?
Jack: We were in the office together when you summoned us here. Here they are now.
Traci: Okay, all good. Good. Thank you so much for coming over so quickly.
Billy: Is everything okay, trace?
Ashley: Should we be worried?
Traci: No, no. Everything’s fine. It’s fine. It’s not harrison. Everything’s good. Uh, you remember zelda?
Ashley: Of course. It’s nice to see you again.
Zelda: Nice to see you, ashley.
Billy: Hey, zelda. It’s billy. We met years ago when I was in manhattan to visit traci.
Zelda: Yes, we all had dinner together.
Jack: We did. That little armenian place on second avenue. Lamb chops in the city.
Zelda: Excellent memory.
Traci: Okay, well, we’re waiting for one more. So until then, does anybody need anything? Some– something to drink? Um, okay.
Zelda: Well, it seems like the gang’s all here, almost. So, I am going to get out of your hair.
Traci: I’m going to try to get back to the club to say goodbye before you leave, okay?
Zelda: I’m not going to hold you to that. You’ve got a job to do. Go get ’em, tiger.
Traci: Thank you.
Jack: Bye, zelda.
Kyle: Aunt traci, I got your text as I was driving to work. Is harrison okay?
Traci: Yes, everything’s fine. Harrison’s fine, honey. Um, I’m sorry, there was no real emergency, per se, but what I have to talk about is really urgent. Summer, diane, I hope you’ll understand when I ask you to please excuse us while we discuss some private family matters.
Jack: Diane is part of this family now. Every bit as much as summer is.
Ashley: Well, then I guess I should ask tucker to join us as well.
Billy: This should be exciting.
Jack: So you’re intent on forcing this guy down our throats?
Ashley: Look who’s talking, jack.
Traci: Enough. Would you please stop this? This is exactly why I called you here today. All this bickering and tension and baiting each other. It is tearing this family apart. It’s got to stop. Jack, actually, the two of you can barely exchange a civil word. Kyle and summer are hardly speaking to each other. And our home? It’s become a battleground and I can’t take it anymore. Please. If– if our father was here, what would he think? I won’t let me moderate to severe plaque psoriasis
Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.
Ashley: Frankly, our father would be appalled that jack let diane back into his life again. I mean, do you really think this is the kind of love that he would have chosen for you? Are you kidding me?
Jack: He would be just as furious that you’re allowing tucker to manipulate you for his own gain.
Traci: Or he would ask you both to stop that. Be kinder. Try to be more understanding of each other’s quest to try to find a loving relationship. John abbott was a strong and focused businessman, but he was fair. He believed in redemption and second chances for the people he cared about.
Jack: We’re teetering on the brink with these damn loans and hemorrhaging money getting tuvia started. I don’t know. Should I have waited? Did I rush things to– honestly, I keep wondering if– if I’m leading this company or if I’m allowing my contempt for victor newman to lead me.
John: Jack, I want you to listen to me. There’s something you’re forgetting. You know, we have been working toward entering this market for a very long time. It has a huge potential and it is going to pay off. And we knew this long before the newmans got involved. Now, you have done nothing wrong. You have nothing to be ashamed of and you have done nothing foolhardy. Now, I believe in you. And don’t you ever forget that.
Ashley: I’m sorry. I can’t do it. I can’t stand here and talk about our family and love and especially our father with diane standing here. I just– I appreciate what you’re doing, traci. I really do. I understand that you’re trying to mend the cracks in our family, but something just–
Diane: Oh, ashley, please, just stop. I will leave–
Diane: And then you can all speak together, maybe more freely as a family.
Jack: That is more than gracious of you, sweetheart.
Diane: Yes, family first. And good luck hashing this all out. And whereas ashley might be determined to get you all to choose sides, just know that that is– that is not what I want.
Kyle: Thanks, mom.
Summer: I’ll go with you.
Traci: Okay, um, everybody, take a seat. Let’s get down to it. What are we going to do to get past all of this anger and bitterness that has taken over our family lately? And if daddy was here, how would he break this impasse?
Billy: He’d tell us to do exactly what you just told us to do. Sit down. Talk to each other kindly, rationally, okay? We’re not hearing each other. That’s the problem here. Everyone’s shouting. We’re not listening.
Jack: I don’t need anyone to tell me what dad would want. I have his voice inside my head all the time, guiding me on the right path, telling me when I crossed the line.
John: Welcome home, son.
Jack: Back where I belong.
John: Well, it took you time to realize that, but you’ve accepted responsibility for your mistakes and you’re ready to be the leader I always knew you could be. I am so proud of you, jack.
Jack: I love to hear those words. And I think you’re gonna be very happy with my plans for the company. We’re gonna move into a whole new market.
John: Whoa, whoa, whoa. As long as you pace yourself and remember, you’re just getting–
Jack: Just getting off the pills, I know. I will take care of myself.
[ John laughing ]
John: You know, sometimes I wonder if you’ll ever learn how. You drive yourself so hard, son. And it’s time to let a little grace in your life. You don’t have to be the best that you can be with everything you do. I’m not gonna love you any less. And another thing, for god’s sake, stop driving away the people that are trying to help you.
Jack: Well, I did make a mess of that, didn’t I?
John: But you clean it up. And jackie, you bring the abbott family back together again.
Billy: I think now is a perfect time to listen to that voice, jack. Moving forward with node- positive breast cancer
Ashley: I carry daddy in my heart, too, jack. You know, you don’t have a monopoly on that.
Jack: I never said I did.
Ashley: He always had the best advice, didn’t he? I mean, didn’t he always? I mean, no matter how upset we would be about things, I mean, we could just always– always turn to dad. He knew everything, all the right things to say.
John: You know, it just– it just breaks my heart, that you’re going through this.
Ashley: I just feel so completely empty inside.
John: Oh, my beauty. You know, I wish I– I wish I could just take you in my arms and make it all go away like it did when you were a little girl.
Ashley: I’m not a little girl anymore. This world, boy, it could be so cruel, huh? It’s just so hurtful. Dad, is this pain ever gonna go away?
John: My baby.
Traci: He was our true north.
Billy: And still is.
Traci: Yeah. Everything I learned about morals and ethics and the right way to treat people, I learned from john abbott.
Jack: I think every one of us here could say that. Including you, son.
Kyle: I was so young when he died. I hardly remember him, but from stories I’ve heard, I think I know what kind of man he was.
Ashley: It killed him when he saw his kids in pain.
Jack: Especially when the source of that pain was someone in the family.
John: I am worried, my beauty.
Ashley: About what?
John: You and jack. And what’s happening between the two of you. Honey, all this animosity, it’s not good for you or for the company. And it has to stop. Now, I am counting on you to make the first move.
[ Ashley sighing ]
Ashley: Daddy hated it when his kids were fighting.
Jack: What meant so much to me about being an abbott was whenever times were tough, and we had our share of tough times, we’d always dig deep. We’d come together, stay united as a family. Whatever our differences, whatever our quarrels, they didn’t consume us. At least not for long.
Billy: Hear, hear.
Traci: Well, I’m feeling a little more hopeful than I have in weeks.
Ashley: I feel better not being quite as angry with you, jack.
Traci: So hopefully, we’ve found enough common ground to even consider the possibility of resolving our differences.
Jack: Right now, I would settle for not constantly being at each other’s throats.
Ashley: Aim high, jack.
Traci: I don’t know. Co-existing without bloodshed? That seems a lofty goal. Kyle. I know we’ve been talking a lot about jack and ashley, but your feelings matter here, too.
Kyle: Am I being too quiet?
Traci: Yeah, you kind of are. I think we’d all like to know what you’re thinking. I know I would.
Kyle: I can’t force you to like or trust my mom, any more than you can force my dad to like or trust tucker, although maybe you could both turn down the volume.
Jack: Worth a try.
Kyle: And yes, I have my own issues going on with summer and it’s a lot for me to deal with. So, right now, that takes precedent.
Traci: I know that you feel hurt and disillusioned by her right now, and– and for good reason, but don’t you think summer’s guilt is punishment enough?
Kyle: If I thought she was being sincere, I might agree with you.
Billy: So you don’t think she’s being sincere?
[ Kyle sighing ]
Kyle: Does summer feel bad about what she did? Or does summer feel bad that she got caught?
Jack: Oh, that is a question that has been asked of her mother for years and years again and again.
Kyle: Right. I mean, would summer be feeling the same guilt if she had been able to keep her secret? Would she have gone on letting us think that phyllis was dead in order to protect her?
Ashley: That’s an excellent question.
Traci: I don’t think maliciously she would–
Jack: I’d like to think eventually she’d come clean.
Kyle: Okay, okay, okay. The problem is, we’ll never know. And I’m not sure if I can live with that.
[ Jack sighing ]
Traci: Kyle. Um, look. We have all been in a situation where we didn’t think we’re going to be able to forgive the person who hurt us. I felt that way about lauren a number of times. I felt that way about ashley and brad for a time, but I did it. It took a long time and it was really hard, but it was really worth it. Because all of that anger and recrimination, it– it– it takes up too much space in your brain and in your heart. And it squeezes out all the room that’s left for joy and happiness.
Kyle: I admire that about you, aunt traci. That your heart is so big and open. But I’m not there yet with summer. I don’t know if I ever will be.
Jack: The simple truth is you can’t force forgiveness. It’s a choice we make. You have to want to fix things.
Traci: I can’t believe that any child that was raised by john abbott would choose anger over healing. If I thought that was true, I– I just couldn’t bear it. Ultomiris is for adults with generalized myasthenia gravis
Billy: I’m gonna head back to the office and get some work done.
Jack: I’ll meet you there.
Billy: You know, for what it’s worth… I love you. Both of you and I want you both to be happy. I know I’m on the outside, okay? I always have been. I’m not one of dina’s kids, but I respect you both and I want to keep respecting you. No matter who you decide to marry.
Jack: Can we get past this?
Ashley: I don’t know, jack. Can we?
Traci: Okay, so what time is your flight to laguardia?
Zelda: Oh, 1:15.
Traci: Oh, you have plenty of time.
Zelda: Well, if there’s one thing I hate, it’s running through the airport in high heels.
Traci: [ Laughing ] Zelda, I just want to thank you again so much for convincing me to try with my family. Thank you.
Zelda: Oh, it’s my immense pleasure. I don’t know if it made much difference. We’ll just have to hope.
[ John laughing ]
John: Oh, honey. Good to see you. Now let me look at you. Happy new year. I love you, jack. Well, you two sure know how to make a father feel proud. Traci. Partners.
