Summer: Oh, god! Oh, my god.
[ Summer sighing ]
Kyle: No, no, no. My bad. My fault.
Summer: No, I wasn’t paying attention.
Kyle: How’s your day going?
Summer: Having trouble with where I’m walking, apparently. You’re looking well. That’s– that’s what people say in these situations, right?
Kyle: Sure. Thanks.
Summer: Uh… harrison told me about all the rocks that he found at camp.
Kyle: Ah, yes. There are now rocks in every room of the house.
Summer: I wish I was there to see it. How– how do you think he’s doing? With the separation and everything.
Kyle: I think he’s handling it. He’s used to change.
Summer: Breakups are really hard on kids, though.
Kyle: How’s everything else?
Summer: I’m just keeping busy.
Kyle: Me too.
Audra: Good morning.
[ Summer sighing ]
Summer: Do you not have somewhere else that you need to be?
Audra: I was actually on my way there.
Summer: That’s very convenient. You know, audra, your agenda is super clear. Kyle’s in a compromised state right now, but pretty soon he’s going to see it too.
Audra: Hm. Well, he looks fine to me.
Kyle: Okay, that’s enough. Just stop.
Billy: There she is. Genoa city’s fashion icon.
Chelsea: Well, that’s a bit of a stretch but keep going. Tell me more.
Billy: So, how is it? I know you were a little bit nervous to start at marchetti, but how’s it going?
Chelsea: I was definitely anxious to dive back into the fashion world, but it’s been easier than I thought. So, thank you for all the support.
Billy: Of course. Not a doubt in my mind it wasn’t going to go well.
Chelsea: Everything’s really coming together. And not just the fashion part. I mean, I’ve been working on the, um, marketing. I’ve been working on the business models, making really big decisions as creative director. I mean, I’m problem solving on a massive scale.
Billy: And rocking it, I’m sure.
Chelsea: Any insecurity I had on my first day, I just thought about that pep talk you gave me and, um, I just checked out my little charm bracelet that you got me and, uh, yeah, I walked out of that office feeling great. More confident than ever.
Billy: Happy to hear that. You deserve all your success.
Chelsea: Well, thank you. You’re my greatest cheerleader. What’s going on with you? You– you– you seem a little distracted. What is it?
Billy: Uh, well, the, uh, situation at jabot isn’t– isn’t great.
Chelsea: How so?
Billy: Jack and diane came up with a plan. They, uh, were asking for my help. I said yes, but it’s– it’s risky. There’s some high stakes maneuvering involved.
Chelsea: How is it risky?
Billy: I have to convince tucker and ashley that I’m on their side.
Diane: Oh, what? No phony compliments? No advising me about muffins in the kitchen?
Ashley: Why don’t you go choke on a muffin, diane?
Diane: [ Laughing ] Okay, let me guess. You’re just edgy because you’ve failed. You haven’t been able to gain the upper hand with jack or jabot. He refused to fire me, wouldn’t even let me quit and why you thought he would divide the family company for you is just beyond comprehension.
Ashley: But then again, there’s so many things in life that you don’t comprehend, right?
Diane: Oh, I know you. And I bet all this failure is really making you frustrated and more determined than ever to get what you want.
Ashley: You’re right, you’re right, yeah, yeah. I am determined. And I will win and you will fail and it’s as simple as that, so.
Diane: Oh, oh, by the way, um, jack and I will be out of the house this afternoon. Today is my wedding day.
Ashley: What are you talking about?
Diane: Um, we’re going to get married this afternoon at the courthouse.
Ashley: Oh, a quickie wedding.
Ashley: I see. One last ditch effort to get your hooks into my brother before it’s too late.
Jack: I’d like to reserve the best table for two in the lounge. It’s a very special evening for me and my soon-to-be wife. Champagne, flowers, the works. Very romantic, very simple, very lovely. I think you get the picture. Thanks for looking out for me.
Phyllis: You’re putting together a celebration. I will leave you to it.
Jack: No, wait. I think you owe me an answer or two. Let’s start with why. How could you do this? After everything we have been through. I thought I’d seen you at your worst and you dig deeper and unleash this hell on diane and your own family. Frankly, I’m amazed you could show your face in public. I have moderate to severe crohn’s disease.
Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…
Summer: Don’t dismiss me, kyle. I know that you’re feeling all the things that I’m feeling, but you’re trying to escape by throwing yourself into whatever this is.
Kyle: Okay, summer, it is no longer your concern what I do or who I’m with. You created this situation, not me.
Summer: You’re loving this, aren’t you?
Audra: No, I actually, um, couldn’t care less. But I will say this, you know, I think, um, it’s kind of sad that you’re showing how controlling you are. Wait, didn’t you betray kyle’s trust, not the other way around?
Summer: Audra, you don’t know anything about our relationship. And I highly doubt you know the meaning of trust.
Kyle: Okay, please just stop. There’s no point in turning this into a fight.
Summer: It’s not a fight. Look, I know that I hurt you and I know that you might hate me, and that’s something that I have to live with. But I hate seeing you like this. Kyle, what are you doing? Don’t destroy your life because of what I did. You’re better than this.
[ Audra sighing ]
Audra: Now, I get it.
Billy: In the hope of undermining my sister’s attack, jack and I are going to have to stage a falling out because of his relationship with diane. At that point then, I will become a sort of a trojan horse and infiltrate tucker and ashley’s camp.
Chelsea: Wow. You know, I didn’t realize things had gotten so strained within your family.
Billy: Desperate times. And it’s a deceptive move, and not without risk. But I think it’s the right thing to do, not only to save ashley but to protect jabot.
Chelsea: So, you’re really worried about tucker’s influence on her?
Billy: I mean, she’s not thinking clearly. He’s been able to pull her in. And I’m not saying my sister’s innocent, right? She has her own checkered history.
Chelsea: Don’t we all?
Billy: But it’s nothing in comparison to what tucker is capable of. And if I’m going to the lengths that I’m about to go to, it’s all to try and expose tucker for who he really is.
Chelsea: [ Sighing ] Wow.
Billy: What do you mean by that?
Chelsea: Mm, no, nothing, I just– it’s just– it’s just a lot to take in.
Billy: It feels like there’s more to that.
Chelsea: No, I just– I mean, I understand wanting to protect your sister, of course, I do, but do you really want to get in the middle of all this? I mean, from what I’ve heard, tucker is a master at mind games.
Billy: Hopefully I can handle him.
Chelsea: Billy, you’ve come so far. I would just hate to see you stumble, and call upon some of your old demons. Ones you’re better off without.
[ Billy sighing ]
Diane: Listen, sis, getting married today was jack’s very romantic idea. He can’t wait to make things official between us.
Diane: Yeah, he’s determined to prove to you and all the other naysayers how real and true our love is.
Ashley: Just great, diane.
Diane: Oh, if it’s any consolation, you do have a new ally. Billy made it very clear to jack that he was not happy with the way jack is handling things.
Ashley: Yeah, billy is the voice of reason. Who would have thought. If my other brother would open his eyes and realize he’s going to lose everything because of you, you stupid bitch.
Diane: [ Laughing ] Wow. Ashley, you’re the one who’s losing everything. But you know what? It’s not too late to change your mind.
Ashley: Diane, there’s no scenario where this ends well for you. You don’t get that, though, do you? Because you’re out of your league. You’re in over your head. And the sooner you realize that and get it through your thick skull, the better off we will all be. Please just move on.
[ Door shots closed ]
Phyllis: Listen, jack, um, I know you’re angry with me. You have every right to be. I deserve it, I do. I never intended for any of this to happen.
Jack: No, you never do.
Phyllis: Okay, well, jeremy stark was manipulating me and he was threatening me, he was threatening my family. He made me do all those horrible things.
Jack: I have a hard time believing that stark got the best of somebody as savvy and clever and manipulative as you are. Given how much you despise diane, I guess there wasn’t a lot of coercion.
Phyllis: You’re right. I mean, I was blinded by anger and rage. That’s true. But, you know, my kids abandoned me. Everybody I cared about abandoned me. And, you know, that doesn’t matter. That doesn’t matter. I– I deserve all of this. Listen, I just want to know if you can find it in your heart to forgive me like you did diane.
Jack: Now, those two situations are very different and you know that.
Phyllis: I’m trying. Maybe you can meet me in the middle.
Jack: You created the situation you were in. You made a choice to punish everyone around you because you couldn’t let go of a decades-old feud. Nobody forced you to do anything. You knew the consequences of your choices. You caused our children’s marriage to fall apart.
Phyllis: I really didn’t intend for that to happen. I’m going to make it up to–
Jack: No, no, don’T. You’ve done quite enough.
Tucker: That went well.
Phyllis: I wasn’t expecting to see him. He caught me off guard.
Tucker: Caught you off guard. Hm. You know what else might catch you off guard, phyllis? When carson doesn’t show up at your trial to testify on your behalf. Are you prepared for that? Are you prepared for prison?
Phyllis: I just started doing this, okay? I’m going to turn things around. Relax.
Tucker: You’re not off to a good start, are you? He doesn’t appear even to be ready to give you the benefit of the doubt, let alone forgive you. I’m wondering if I made a mistake.
Phyllis: What does that mean?
Tucker: If you’re not going to fulfill your end of the bargain, I don’t know what good you are to me. (Wheezing)
Phyllis: Listen, I know jack very well, okay? Um, I can get him where you want him.
[ Phyllis sighing ] We’ll be best buds. He’ll be calling me red.
Phyllis: That will drive diane crazy. That’s what you want, right?
Tucker: “Will be, will be, will be, will be.” Yeah, right. You talk a big game. Can you back any of it up?
Phyllis: You will get full forgiveness and acceptance. Whatever jack and diane decide to do from there is on them, it’s not on me. I’m not continuing a war with that woman.
Tucker: Far be it from me to ask you to go above and beyond, phyllis.
Phyllis: Okay, I want to ask you a question. What if it doesn’t bother diane that jack forgives me? What if she doesn’t care? Where does that leave me and our arrangement?
Tucker: I don’t know. I’ll have to think about it.
Lauren: You know, I’ve– I’ve really been afraid to see you. Because I’m caught between my love for you and how much I’ve missed you.
Phyllis: I missed you. I missed you so much.
Lauren: And my rage at what you’ve done and put all of us through.
Phyllis: I missed you.
Lauren: I missed you.
Phyllis: I’m so sorry. I love you and michael so much. I love you so much. And if I have to spend the rest of my life making it up to you, I will. I promise you.
Lauren: I’m so relieved you’re home. And you, listen to me. You need to put your trust in heather. And you need to listen to everything that she tells you to do because she’s your best chance right now.
Kyle: Hey, I’m, uh, I’m sorry you had to witness that.
Audra: Oh, no, I– I’m fine. But, um, you’re clearly not. Summer is still getting under your skin, isn’t she?
[ Kyle chuckling ]
Kyle: You know, sometimes it’s, um, it’s hard to let go.
Audra: Yeah, I– I know what that’s like. You know, I, um, I went through it with noah.
[ Audra sighing ] That was one of the few times, if not only time, I’ve ever really been in love.
Audra: And that situation taught me, um, just how dangerous love can be.
Kyle: Yeah, well, falling for someone can be the greatest and the worst thing.
Audra: I handle things differently now. You know, I had to learn how to put myself first.
[ Sighing ] You know, I rather focus on the things that bring me pleasure and excitement, personally and professionally.
Kyle: That sounds like a wise course of action.
Audra: I find it’s better to, um, be selfish than to get hurt. Because pain can be distracting and cause you to make mistakes.
Kyle: I see the logic in that, but I don’t know if I’m ready to live my life that way.
Audra: Maybe not yet.
[ Summer sighing ]
Chance: Hey, summer.
Chance: You all right?
Summer: Yeah, I just, uh… I had a weird encounter on the way over here and I guess I haven’t shaken it off yet.
Chance: You know what? This kind of reminds me, the other day I got home after a, uh, really long day at work, right? I’m putting dominic down and he’s looking up at me, at my sad, grumpy, face, right? And he reaches out and he…
[ Whooping ] He moves my mouth into a smile just like that. It was crazy.
Summer: He did not!
Chance: He did, I swear, it was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. He did, on my life. Cracked me up.
Summer: Oh, my god. Harrison would sometimes do stuff like that. He– he would go out into the backyard and pick flowers and bring them to me in a little bouquet when I was in a bad mood.
Chance: That’s sweet. You know, kids, they, uh, really put things into perspective, don’t they?
Summer: It’s true. Thanks.
Summer: I don’t know, for not, uh, running in the other direction when you’re faced with my stormy mood.
Chance: Yeah, well, I’ve been there. I get it. So, if I can ever help ease the moment, I’m happy to do it.
Jack: Hey! Everything is set for our courthouse marriage later today and I have a little surprise for you after.
Diane: Aw, you have thought of absolutely everything, haven’t you? Well, I reached out to kyle and asked him to meet us over here. I hope– hope he’s excited that his parents can’t wait another minute to get married.
Jack: Oh, I’m sure he will be thrilled for us.
Diane: Oh, and I ran into ashley earlier. She reacted as you would have expected.
Jack: I hope she wasn’t too harsh with you.
Diane: Oh, no, same old, same old. Nothing I haven’t heard before. But, um, I did hint to her how troubled billy was by the situation.
Jack: Good thinking.
Diane: Yeah. I think we should put things in motion with billy as quickly as possible. And, you know, this quickie courthouse wedding could be the perfect impetus for your fight with him.
Jack: I don’t want anything to get in the way of our happiness today. Even a fake fight with billy for ashley. It– it just seems wrong, like we would taint the beauty of the moment.
Diane: No, no! That’s not going to happen. No, we’re not going to let anything ruin our day. But I– I think we should do this quickly because I really see it as the only way out. The chance to put ashley in her place so that she will finally leave us alone.
Jack: Yeah, yeah. That’s all I want. Some peace in this family so that you and i can enjoy our life together.
Diane: That’s all I want, too. I want things going forward to be as wonderful and stress-free as possible. And– and I’m sorry if my actions seem a little pushy, but honestly, it’s– it’s coming out of love.
Jack: You know something? You are absolutely right. We have to go to the limit if we’re going to end this war once and for all.
Diane: Yeah. Mm. [ Sighing ]
[ Diane chuckling ]
is the beat of life.
Summer: You know, despite everything that’s been going on, I really do appreciate your kindness towards me. I know that I’m not always the easiest person to deal with.
Chance: Ooh. No, you, uh, you have your moments. I’m happy to be there for you, though, any way I can.
Chelsea: Hey. I’m not late, am I?
Summer: Uh, no, not at all.
Chelsea: Are you sure? I can give you guys a minute.
Chance: No, I was just saying hi. I’ve got to run anyways.
Summer: Hey, thanks for trying to cheer me up.
Chance: Any time.
Chance: Good to see you.
Chelsea: Good to see you.
[ Both sighing ] That chance. He’s one of the good guys. He was actually a really good influence on adam not too long ago, and he was always such a great friend to rey.
Summer: Well, I will take all the friends that I can get right now.
Chelsea: Hm. Well, I’d like to consider myself one of them. I mean, I know our working relationship just started, but I feel like we’ve built a lot of trust there. Oh, that’s your cue that if you want to tell me something personal I’m here to listen.
Summer: Oh, okay. [ Laughs ] Uh, I guess I’m just still feeling conflicted. You know, I would really love for kyle to forgive me and I would love to be able to find a way to forgive him for cheating on me.
Chelsea: I can’t imagine any of that is easy for you.
Summer: No. I know that you recommended letting go, but I just– I don’t know if that’s possible. After everything that we’ve been through, I mean, isn’t it worth it to try to save our marriage? I– I still love kyle. How do I just walk away from that?
Lauren: Thank you.
Phyllis: I have a confession to make.
Lauren: Oh, god. I don’t think I can take another one.
Phyllis: All right. Even heather won’t be able to save me if I lose my star witness. And I’m having to be nice to tucker so that carson doesn’t disappear. It’s proving to be very challenging.
Lauren: Michael told me about this deal with tucker and I think it’s a very tricky situation. He’s very sketchy and shady.
Phyllis: Yeah. He– I’m under his thumb and I want to gag.
Lauren: Yeah, well, don’t you give up because if you get jack’s forgiveness, it’ll be worth it.
Phyllis: I saw jack. It wasn’t nice.
Lauren: He will come around. He has a soft spot for you and always has.
Phyllis: I think I killed it this time.
Lauren: No, no, do not give up trying. I don’t love the fact that tucker has his hooks in you, but actually, getting jack and kyle’s forgiveness is going to work in your favor, and hopefully summer’S. So, you do this for you, not tucker.
Diane: Kyle! Thank you so much for meeting us.
Kyle: Sure thing. What’s up?
Diane: Well, your father and i are getting married today!
Jack: We’re heading to the courthouse shortly and we would like you to be there and be part of it with us.
Kyle: Wow, um… I, uh, didn’t see that coming. Uh… why the rush?
Jack: We want to put any and everyone’s doubts to rest and the truth is, I don’t want to spend another day not married to your beautiful mother.
[ Sighing ] Kyle, you seem a little iffy about this, but trust me, you don’t have to worry. This is a good thing.
Kyle: I’m trying to keep up with the two of you. To follow your lead.
Jack: You know, I thought you were fully on board with our getting back together.
Kyle: No, dad, I am, but I can’t help but feel like outside forces are motivating a move like this. I mean, it seems unwise to charge into something so… important and life-changing and… what’s this really all about? Where are you going?
Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.
Jack: Yes, there are other factors at play in us getting married today, but I am deeply in love with your mother and I want to make a point of that to ashley and anyone else who doubts my sincerity.
Kyle: Yeah. Billy told me the fight between you and ashley hadn’t ended, despite aunt traci’s attempt at a truce. So once again, I’m the last to find out about what’s going on in my family.
Jack: No, this is not about exclusion. You have had your own problems to deal with. And ashley is not the principal factor in us getting married. Our love is.
Diane: Yeah. Kyle, please. Won’t you join us in a celebration of that?
[ Diane sighing ]
Kyle: Um… I’m afraid I’m going to have to bow out. I have back to back meetings at newman media all afternoon and into the evening.
Diane: I’m sorry to hear that.
Kyle: I mean, you two did spring this on me at the last minute. I was thinking september for your wedding. Wasn’t that the plan? Does that even still stand?
Diane: No, we are going to have a reception then for all of our loved ones. But, kyle, come on. Can’t you just rearrange your schedule for today? We– we would love to have our son beside us.
Tucker: I have an update for you.
Ashley: Oh, I have an update. Things have gotten a lot worse.
Tucker: They tend to do that.
Ashley: And this–
Tucker: Hey, billy. How are you?
Billy: I’m okay. Uh, listen, um, I thought I should tell you because, well, it’s not fun to be left in the dark, as I’ve found out a few occasions lately, but, uh, jack and diane are getting married today in a civil ceremony.
Ashley: Yeah, I heard. Diane told me earlier.
Tucker: Oh, wow.
Tucker: I’m tearing up.
Billy: As you know that I’ve been supportive of jack, but I think he’s crossing the line with this move.
Ashley: Really? You never thought diane was a threat before.
Billy: I mean, he’s rushing into this, clearly, and he’s not taking any steps to protect himself. I guarantee you he doesn’t have a prenup, and I think we can all agree that can be very dangerous.
Tucker: Do you even care?
Billy: He’s my brother, tucker, so yeah, I care. But I would be lying if I said this rush to the altar doesn’t have me questioning everything else now, too.
Ashley: Yeah, well, diane told me it was jack’s idea, but I don’t believe her.
Billy: I agree. I think diane is the mastermind. But jack didn’t say anything about diane’s promotion, he didn’t say anything about pushing kyle from of marchetti, so I am worried about jabot.
Ashley: Oh, my god. Oh, god, this is such a relief. So, you finally see it? You really see it? I mean, jack is an idiot.
Chelsea: I’ll admit walking away from adam was not easy for me. I tried to save our marriage past the point of it making sense. I mean, it didn’t work out for us, but we were also in a very different situation, facing different things than what you and kyle are dealing with.
Summer: Kyle and I were good. We were so good. Un– until we weren’T.
Chelsea: I see. I do know, I mean, that you can’t force someone to stay with you.
Summer: I know. The way I see it, though is that he betrayed me by sleeping with another woman and I still love him and I want to be with him. I guess I just don’t really know if he feels that way about me.
Chelsea: Well, maybe he’s just too hurt to show it.
Summer: I have loved him for so long. I mean, he’s a part of me. He’s my other half. I just– I don’t understand. Like, how can he not love me back just as much?
Chelsea: I’m really sorry you’re going through all this.
Summer: Uh, you know what? This– this isn’t fair to you. You shouldn’t have to deal with my personal problems. And I’ve already spent too much time thinking about things that I can’t control, so let’s just shift gears. Let’s, uh, let’s get to work.
[ Summer sighing ] Martial arts is my passion. With cirkul, your water is deliciously flavored at the turn of a dial, with zero sugar and zero calories. And cirkul has over 40 flavors, so your water can be as unique as you are. Try cirkul at drinkcirkul.Com hey, dad. I got an a on my book report.
Phyllis: I know it’s not going to be easy with jack. Um, it’s not something I can just wave away.
Lauren: Well, I think seeking forgiveness is going to be good for you because you can move forward. And if you have jack and kyle’s acceptance, you are free of tucker, and hopefully these charges against you. And then you can get back to your life.
Phyllis: Yeah. I want to get back to my life.
Lauren: Then you should focus on that.
Phyllis: I want to start a new life, you know? Just create something new with my kids and make it up to all my friends that I hurt.
Lauren: Yes. You focus on that.
Phyllis: I don’t trust tucker.
Lauren: And you shouldn’T.
Phyllis: But I need some leverage, you know what I mean? Something over him so I can protect myself in case, you know, he decides to, uh, make carson disappear, you know what I mean? He keeps on threatening me.
Lauren: It never hurts to take precautions against someone like mccall. I want you to know I’ll be with you every step of the way, but you have got to keep heather in the loop. You have got to tell her everything that you are doing because she is your best chance at freedom.
Summer: Well, everyone at marchetti is already super impressed with you. I mean, they already knew your history and your creative vision in the fashion industry, but I really do feel like you have stepped into the creative director role with a lot of ease.
Chelsea: Well, thank you. Billy and i were just talking about it. It does feel like things have fallen into place.
Summer: Well, as you’re still getting settled, just feel free to ask me any questions. Or if you have ideas about the business structure, creative, anything, I– I want to hear it.
Chelsea: I mean, I have tons of ideas how we can maximize our potential.
Summer: Okay, great! I mean, that’s exactly why I hired you. Chelsea, I really do think you and I working together, we’re going to see record growth at marchetti.
[ Chelsea chuckling ]
Chelsea: Can i tell you something? Just a personal observation.
Summer: Yeah, sure.
Chelsea: I think you’re a lot stronger than you give yourself credit for. I mean, I truly feel like you’re going to find a way to be move on and be happy.
Kyle: I wish I could, but I can’T. In fact, I have to head back to the office.
Jack: Kyle, it’s a civil ceremony. It won’t take that long.
Kyle: And dad, I hope it goes well. Congratulations. See you later.
Diane: Well, that’s not how I thought that conversation would go.
Jack: You know what? He’s being diligent and responsible in his new job at newman media.
Diane: No, no, I think there’s more going on. Ever since this whole ordeal with summer, he’s been just shut down emotionally and, I don’t know, maybe seeing two people exchange vows of lasting love is just, um, too much for him right now.
Jack: You know what? I can’t argue with you there. I know from experience that when you shut out that part of your heart, you don’t always make the wisest decisions.
Billy: This quickie wedding just proves your point that jack is not thinking clearly and he’s lost his mind because of diane and it’s got me concerned. Frankly, I’m angry. I don’t want you two to go to war over jabot. I don’t want that. This courthouse wedding is a mistake and it’s a big red flag. Before my doctor and I chose breztri for my copd, I
[ Kyle sighing ]
Kyle: Hi. Sorry I’m late.
Audra: Already slacking, huh?
Kyle: Oh, worse. I had to deal with more family drama. I just can’t seem to catch a break these days. I’m sorry. I may not be good company.
Audra: It’s okay. What can I do to help?
Kyle: Hm. Well, can we cancel our afternoon meetings? Because right now I need to get you alone.
[ Summer sighing ]
Chance: Hey, summer. Nice to see you again. You okay?
[ Summer chuckling ] No. Everybody keeps telling me that I just need to move on, that I need to let go, but I– I don’t know if I could do that. I’ve already lost so much. And yeah, my mom is back, but it’s not the same. I mean, everything is different. I just… I wish that everything could go back to the way that it was.
[ Summer sighing ]
[ Chance sighing ] You know, sometimes, the best way out is forward.
[ Both panting ]
Audra: Do you trust me? Turn around.
[ Kyle chuckling ]
Phyllis: I mean, tucker’s got to have a weak spot. He has to have a vulnerable spot.
Lauren: I mean, he’s an enigma. For a man who only cared about himself, now seems to actually be caring about others. His son, his grandson, ashley.
Phyllis: He has an agenda. He’s after jabot.
Lauren: Ah. [ Scoffing ] That explains the motivation.
Lauren: So, the situation is inherently precarious. You have got to find his weak link and you go from there.
Phyllis: Right. You know, I’m trying to be honest and aboveboard, but I think I have to tap into og phyllis.
Lauren: Oh, boy.
Phyllis: I think I do. I have no choice. Just this last time. And then I’m going to create my new life, I swear.
Diane: I can’t believe we’re actually doing this! Oh, how did I get so lucky to have such a handsome groom?
Billy: Hey. Excuse me, sorry to interrupt. But, uh, I just ran into tucker and ashley and I was able to bait the situation. Don’t know if they’re going to bite or not, but they are poised, just to let you know.
Jack: Hello. Well, you are both welcome to join us at our civil ceremony.
Tucker: Did you say civil?
[ Laughing ] Civil, my ass.
Ashley: You know what? This just proves what I’ve been saying all along. You have completely lost your mind and thank god, billy finally agrees with me.
Jack: Wait. Is that true?
Billy: Jack, you’re not– you’re not making this easy, right? I mean, this is mistake. You shouldn’t be going through with this. And honestly, if diane actually loved you as much as she said she does, she would put an end to this now.
