Kyle: Hey, you’re home early.

Diane: Hi. Yeah, I just had some reading to catch up on, so I thought I’d finish my work day here. Plus, harrison should be back soon, so I thought it’d be fun if we played outside together before dark.

Kyle: Ah, I love that.

Diane: Yeah. But you know what? I can read later if you have time now.

Kyle: Time for what?

Diane: Oh, I don’t know. To sit and talk. I haven’t seen much of you in the last couple of days. So, how have you been keeping busy? Networking, I assume. Maybe polishing your resume? Um, any exciting job leads?

Kyle: Nope.

Diane: You know, your father and I are still hoping you’ll come back to jabot.

Kyle: Mom–

Diane: I know, I know, I know you’re only interested in retaking the co-ceo position. Nothing less.

Kyle: Dad said replacing billy wasn’t outside the realm of possibility.

Diane: Right. And it seemed like he was about to get rid of billy and bring you back, and then somehow billy talked his way into staying.

Kyle: Of course, he did.

Diane: Yeah. Billy feeds jack’s darker impulses. And I’ve told your father that I don’t think it’s a good idea for the two of them to be working so closely together.

Kyle: Mom, you don’t have to push so hard. If I’m still out and billy’s back in, so be it.

Diane: Is it wrong of me to enjoy working with my son?

Kyle: No, but I don’t want dad to give me my old job back just because you badgered him into it.

Billy: Hey, how’d the marketing meeting go?

Jack: Uh, the agency pitched a few taglines for this new fragrance we’re marketing, some of them were promising. Uh, I’ll keep you up to speed on all of that. Right now, I’m more interested in any updates you can give me.

Billy: I talked to tucker.

Jack: Great. And?

Billy: I told him we know about the singer, we know about the cover-up and how bad this is for him. And that we will not hesitate to use the information if he does not back off.

Jack: And? How did he react?

Billy: Nonchalant, as usual as if he can zen his way out of trouble.

Jack: I’m not buying it. Are you?

Billy: Nope. He’s in total panic.

Nikki: Well, that was a very productive lunch.

Audra: Agreed. And I’m ready to hit the ground running on those items we discussed.

Nikki: And I have a new assistant.

Audra: Yes, I’m glad you think claire will be a good addition to the team.

Tucker: Audra. Hi. Excuse me. I need to talk to you now, in private.

Audra: I can’t right now, tucker. Sorry.

Adam: Pops.

Victor: Hey, son. What brings you by?

Adam: Uh, I just was following up on something.

Victor: Mm-hmm. Something for nate?

Adam: No, not for my new boss. Earlier when you were so jovial when you said everything was falling in place with the family, that was all bs, right?

Victor: Have you ever known me to say anything I don’t mean?

Adam: You’re not sure that I can be trusted, especially when it comes to victoria, right? When– when are you gonna see that? I am not the one that you should be worried about.

Nick: Adam kissed you? When? How? Did he take advantage of you? I swear to god, I’m gonna rip his head off. (Husband) leftovers again? I am in love with mixtiles.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Sally: Look, I didn’t mean to blurt it out like that. It really wasn’t a big deal.

Nick: Not a big deal? My brother kissing my girlfriend’s not a big deal?

Sally: Okay. We had dinner together. It was a spontaneous spur-of-the-moment thing. We ran into each other at the athletic club, we both needed to eat. Seemed like a good idea at the time. It was just a friendly, innocent dinner, celebrating new beginnings and his reset at newman. My new venture.

Nick: Okay.

Sally: We probably had a little too much to drink and adam– adam asked to walk me back to my suite after dinner. I agreed.

Nick: And then he kissed you?

Sally: Yeah, he– he kissed me good night, but he instantly regretted it and he said he was sorry.

Nick: I highly doubt my brother regretted anything. He took advantage of the fact that I was gone.

Sally: No, no.

Nick: Hey, nick’s out of town. Let me real quick try and seduce sally and see if I can convince her to dump him and get back with me.

Sally: No, nick, that’s not what happened.

Nick: That is exactly what happened. This is how my brother operates. It’s who he is.

Sally: He really did seem to feel bad afterward.

Nick: I highly doubt that. So what? He kissed you, then what?

Sally: What? What– what do you mean?

Nick: What did he say? Did he say anything else? Like uh, that he still loved you or he thought the two of you still belonged together?

Victor: I assume you’re implying that I should be worried about your sister?

Adam: Yes. I mean, that was– that was quite an act she put on earlier. Suddenly pleasant and rational. No issues at all. I mean, you saw right through that, right?

Victor: You know I’m not worried about anyone. Not your sister, not nate, not you.

Adam: Well, then you are not looking closely enough.

Victor: I run this damn place. If any problem should raise its ugly head, I’ll excise it.

Adam: Gonna nip it?

Victor: Anyone who is disloyal to me or to newman enterprises.

Victoria: All right. Let’s hear it. What happened with my father after I left?

Nate: I am pleased to report, victor seems wary of adam’s alleged turnaround.

Victoria: Well, thank god. I mean, I was starting to think that dad was buying into it by the way he was acting.

Nate: Yeah. I– I thought so too. He was being very positive about the new situation.

Victoria: Well, yeah. My dad is not much of a cheerleader. He doesn’t get giddy about teamwork. That’s just another reason that I’m starting to think something’s off. So, what did he say, specifically?

Nate: Victor’s skeptical of adam’s seeming willingness to start at the bottom and do as he’s told.

Victoria: I’m really happy to hear that. I mean, that’s good news that my father doesn’t trust adam any more than we do.

Nate: Yeah. Yeah. I was really worried your father was buying into adam’s contrition. Believing he had undergone some kind of miracle transformation. Fortunately, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

Victoria: Oh, what a relief.

Nate: Victor does think that things are falling into place a little too easily for there not to be red flags. But victoria, it is not just adam victor doubts. He was referring to your apparent turnaround as well.

Victoria: Oh, really?

Nate: Well, he told me you claim to have accepted the recent moves. Him back in the ceo chair, you in the number two slot and your mother at newman media. And that you were willing to give adam a chance.

Victoria: Claimed. So, my dad doesn’t believe that I’m sincere?

Nate: He says he wants to believe you, but you were pretty angry just a few days ago. Given that, it’s not a surprise your father is a little suspicious, right? Were you being honest with what you said? Are you really okay with your father’s plans for newman enterprises and where that leaves you? Imagine if you could get ahead of your ibs-C…

Diane: Okay. I am not going to pressure jack on your behalf. Does– does that even sound like me? All right. I can be determined when I want something. But you know as well as I do that jack wants you back at jabot.

Kyle: If you say so.

Diane: Would you reconsider some other executive spot like you were offered when you left marchetti?

Kyle: You make it sound like I willingly walked away. Dad essentially fired me. He considered summer more valuable to the company than me.

Diane: That’s not true.

Kyle: Mom, come on.

Diane: All right. I’m sure we could find something in the company that you would enjoy. An interim position.

Kyle: Interim to what?

Diane: All right. You didn’t hear it from me, but billy is going to be out. Again. Soon. I know that sounds cold, but history has a way of repeating itself.

Kyle: No, you’re not cold, you’re a realist and I suspect you could be right. At least I hope so. I mean, I worry about the harm billy could cost jabot as ashley was worried about you.

Billy: So, did you talk to phyllis?

Jack: Oh, yeah. Read her the riot act for teaming up with tucker and coming after us. After jabot. I also made it clear to her, he is going to try to create a rift between us. And if she helps him, well, so much for her claims that she is trying to turn her life around and be a better person.

Billy: So, she admitted to working with tucker?

Jack: She didn’t admit to anything, but it’s phyllis. I know her. She is covering. I also made it clear to her she’d go a long way toward redeeming herself if she could help us figure out what tucker is planning.

Billy: Jack, we can’t trust her.

Jack: I don’t, but it’s pretty clear to me, she desperately wants the people she cares about to trust her. She wants redemption, billy. And she was willing to do anything she can to get it.

Billy: So, you’re hoping she comes over to the good guys side?

Jack: Well, we’ll see how that goes. In the meantime, hopefully, your little meeting with tucker will dissuade him from coming after us and we won’t need phyllis at all.

Billy: But if not…

Jack: If not, phyllis may be just the weapon we need.

Audra: How am I supposed to know how to respond when I have no idea what you’re talking about?

Tucker: A singer signed to the mccall label who, it turned out, was getting involved with underage girls on the road. Ringing any bells? He went to jail for statutory rape when the tour was finished.

Audra: Yeah, because the pr department decided to cover it up. Yes, I– I remember.

Tucker: Yeah. And do you remember that I asked you to clean up this mess so it would not come back to haunt us? I fired everyone on that pr team and told you to take care of the rest.

Audra: I did take care of it. I– I deleted all the information relating to that decision.

Tucker: And then decided it was a good idea to email me the progress. Emails I never got because they went to my junk mail.

Audra: Okay. So what? Okay, tucker, that was years ago and– and didn’t you wipe the system when you sold the company?

Tucker: Of course, I did, audra, but apparently the junk mail remained on one of the servers, and guess who has found it? Adam freakin’ newman.

Audra: How?

Tucker: How do you think? He is in charge of the company now, is he not? He has access to everything. Does he not?

Audra: I know that, okay? What does this all mean exactly?

Tucker: Well, he needed some leverage over me, so he went digging until he found it.

Audra: And you believe him?

Tucker: See if this sounds familiar. “Singer problem remedied. Hands clean.” You got careless and now you’ve put us both in jeopardy. And now you’re gonna fix it.

Audra: If this is about the mccall issue, kyle’s up to speed. Besides the threat has been neutralized. So, uh, this is over.

Tucker: You’ll forgive me if I’m gonna need a little more than just your say so.

Kyle: That should be enough.

Tucker: Who the hell’s talking to you?

Audra: If I’m not worried about it, tucker, you shouldn’t be either, okay? You can go check in with adam if you want. But as far as we’re concerned, this is over.

Tucker: My whole world is a celebration, everything. It’s just everything’s coming up roses. You on the other hand…

Adam: You know, I still have those emails. So, maybe I will let that evidence slip out just to wipe that smile off your face.

Tucker: I don’t think you’d be that foolish.

Adam: You think? I mean, I’m a screw up and I always will be, right?

Tucker: Yeah. No, no, no, no.

Billy: And stick with me, okay? Because we’re gonna go down memory lane a little bit. Back to a time when you and audra were running the mccall record label. Remember that? There was an artist of yours that had a thing for underage girls.

Tucker: Hm.

Billy: Yeah, you must have thought that you buried all the evidence, huh? All those emails back and forth between you and audra. Talking about how you were gonna cover it all up to save your ass. Guess who’s got those emails now, tucker? I do. And I’m gonna use them to crush you unless you back off.

Adam: Okay, you have my attention. What is it that I’m going to regret?

Tucker: You were supposed to destroy evidence of a certain problem at mccall. And what you did instead was sell that evidence to the highest bidder.

Adam: I– I don’t have any idea what you’re talking about. I did destroy the evidence. Maybe somebody made copies. Audra? Perhaps you can’t trust her as much as you–

Tucker: No, it was you, adam.

Adam: Hm. Just out of curiosity who is the uh, highest bidder that you mentioned?

Tucker: Billy.

Adam: Billy abbott? Really? Oh, it’s– it’s fascinating. So, what is he using the, uh, singer’s misdeeds as leverage? And the timing doesn’t make sense. I mean, what could you have that he would want so badly? Family is just very important.

Tucker: You know, adam, I was perfectly content just letting you live your life. I was gonna forget about your attempts to blackmail me. And using phyllis to undercut my plans.

Adam: Again, tucker, I don’t have any idea what you’re–

Tucker: Shut up. It’s been a long time since you and I were friends, but now, you’ve made me your enemy. I hope you understand what a monumental mistake that is.

Victoria: I am going along with my father’s wishes. At least for now.

Nate: Mm-hmm. For now.

Victoria: Well, are you doing what he wants you to do? Becoming adam’s best friend?

Nate: Adam is my assistant and I will treat him as such. Like I told you, I don’t plan to give him anything beyond menial tasks. I’m not about to trust him with anything he can use to hurt the company. And I have no plans to cultivate a relationship outside the office. Adam is aware. He claims he’s determined to earn my trust, which we both know is not going to happen.

Victoria: Adam’s lies are so predictable. So, my father didn’t ask you to do anything? He didn’t ask you to suss me out and see what my true feelings were so you could report back to him?

Nate: Of course not. He seems to want my focus on adam.

Victoria: Well, I still think that he’s trying to pull you over to his side and enlist you as an ally in case I decide to rebel.

Nate: To what end? Does he think I can talk you down, diffuse any tension?

Victoria: My father likes loyalty.

Nate: Okay. Victoria, I am always on your side, and you know that. The only reason I’m supporting your father is because I’m trying to protect you. So, if I have to be the buffer between the two of you for things to run smoothly at newman, so be it. But again, I have to ask, is victor’s concern valid? Are you playing games or did you mean it when you accepted your demotion without a fight?

Victoria: I meant it, nate, 100%.

Sally: Nick, don’t make too much out of this, okay? It didn’t mean anything to me.

Nick: But it meant everything to him.

Sally: Okay. He kissed me. I didn’T…

Nick: How did you feel afterward?

Adam: I’m sorry. That was, um– that was a mistake.

Sally: Yeah. Yeah, yeah, it was.

Adam: Well, in my defense. Um, it wasn’t me that kissed you. It was my um, champagne brain. Would you, uh, mind if we just pretend like that never happened?

Sally: Pretend what never happened? I– I don’t know what what you’re talking about.

Adam: Thank you. Goodnight.

Sally: You’re welcome. And, yeah, good night.

Nick: Sally, there’s no judgment here, okay? I’m not mad at you, I promise. But I need to know everything, no matter what. Just be honest. I need to know how you felt because it’s obvious adam’s never gonna let this go, no matter what he says.

Sally: I had a mixed reaction, I guess. I– I don’t know how I felt. No question, the kiss was out of line. And– and I really do feel like he was sincere when he said he was sorry and…

Nick: And what?

Sally: I don’t know. It’s hard to just see how much pain he’s in. Still being in love with me and knowing that I’m with you.

Nick: So, there is a part of you that is still in love with him? You didn’t live this strong,

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

[ Sally sighs ]

Sally: I don’t know how to answer that, nick.

Nick: Meaning you are still in love with him.

Sally: No, no, I did not say that. I did not say that. It’s not black and white. It– it’s like you and sharon. You know, just because the relationship is over and– and– and over for years, does not mean that all the feelings just disappear.

Nick: Sally, it’s not the same thing, all right? It’s not even close. You still have feelings for adam. It’s why you haven’t been able to take that next emotional step with me. Why you have never been able to completely let him go.

Sally: No, I have let him go. I have. I– I’ve cut emotional ties and romantic ties. We’re just friends. Really. That’s it. We’re friends.

Nick: I wish that were true. I really do. But you’re either lying to yourself or you’re not admitting the truth. Adam has a hold on you. Maybe he always will.

Sally: Look, nick, please. Okay. We are in such a good place and I really love what we have together. I– I don’t want to feel this way, okay? I– I– I don’t want to feel confused and– and mixed up. If– if I could straighten out my jumbled-up emotions right now, I would. But you asked me and this is where I’m at. But it doesn’t mean that I care about you any less. Just please tell me I haven’t screwed this up.

[ Sally sighs ]

Nate: All right then. You tell me you’re sincere, I believe you. And it really is for the best if you’re on good terms with your father right now. Don’t you think?

Victoria: Yes, I agree. I mean, I can tell my father over and over again that returning to newman and running the company day to day is a colossal mistake, but until he’s ready to hear it, it’s not gonna mean anything. I think that keeping the peace is in my best interest long term.

Nate: And you really believe your father in the ceo chair is a serious misstep? Your demotion aside.

Victoria: Absolutely. The fact that he brought adam back inside the company? I mean, it’s just more proof to me that he’s having some serious errors in his judgment.

Nate: Okay. But there’s nothing you can do about that.

Victoria: No, not right now. But you and I, we both put adam on notice and reminded him that you are his boss. You’re gonna be keeping a close eye on him and you’re gonna be on top of him in a heartbeat if he tries anything.

Nate: That’s not gonna stop him.

Victoria: No, obviously not. I mean, eventually, adam is going to try to make some sort of move that’s gonna benefit him. And it’s going to be detrimental for the company. Unfortunately, that might be what it takes to get my father to the breaking point.

Diane: I am jabot’s chief talent officer, you know. Let me find a position for you that will suit your enormous talents.

Kyle: Mm, no thanks, mom.

Diane: Kyle, being back at jabot will show your father that you still want to be part of the family business. And then when billy screws up, which he will do, you will be able to step back in.

Kyle: All right. It sounds good in theory. But what if, by chance, billy doesn’t screw up and dad doesn’t want to replace him? What then?

Diane: Then you’ll still have a good job at jabot instead of spending your days doing whatever it is you’ve been doing.

Kyle: No, I– I can’t go backward. I have already proven myself as a leader. I would rather hang out with harrison every day and live a happy carefree life than be stuck in the middle with nowhere to go, forever in my father’s shadow.

Jack: Kyle.

Kyle: Hey, dad. Billy.

Billy: Hey. I’m sorry to hear about newman media.

Kyle: Yeah.

Billy: What’s the plan next?

Kyle: I’m not sure. Mom and i were just discussing options.

Diane: And I’m sure my brilliant son will have a slew of companies who want to hire him.

Jack: I hope you know we would all be very happy to have you return to jabot.

Kyle: I know. We’ll see. Excuse me.

Billy: See you.

Jack: Is he okay?

Victoria: When you demoted me, I know I fought you on it. It just– my feelings were hurt because my position had just been stripped away from me and I– I mean, I took it so personally.

Victor: It was a business decision.

Victoria: I see that now. I’ve put aside my anger and I’m willing to let go of these feelings that I have about adam. I know that this company is stronger than he is. I know it can survive anything.

Victor: I’m very glad you feel that way again. Because I was beginning to feel that our relationship was becoming untenable.

Victoria: Well, what would you have done if that had been the case?

Victor: I would have fired you. And should it get to that point again? I still might.

Nikki: Hello, darling.

Victor: Hi, my sweetheart.

Nikki: Mwah. Mwah.

Victor: That’s what I need. Midday kisses from my baby.

Nikki: Yes.

Victor: How’s your day?

Nikki: Great. I just hired a new assistant. And she’s a lovely young woman who I think will be a great asset to newman media. You’ll meet her soon.

Victor: Wonderful.

Nikki: Now, how about you? Have you talked to victoria?

Victor: Yeah. Victoria came by earlier and we had an interesting conversation. She had a change of heart. She says she’s going to try working within the new corporate structure.

Nikki: And you believe her?

Victor: Let’s say hope springs eternal.

Nikki: Well, I’m still not sure about her working with adam. I just cannot see that working, especially with him in a subordinate position.

Victor: Yeah, you have said that before. And I understand your concerns. But, let me ask you something. Is that all you’re worried about? Or are you really concerned about my resuming the full-time job here?

Nikki: Would it make any difference if I said yes?

Adam: Well, hello, you two. Your guys’ new ventures must be doing well if you got time for a romantic picnic in the park in the middle of a workday.

Nick: You better keep walking. I don’t want to hear a word from you.

Adam: Okay, nick, I really wish you could just let go of what happened at mccall-kirsten.

Nick: I’m not in the mood to let anything you do go, adam. Wowwww…

Nikki: I know you think that,

Victor: Sweetheart, this is the best place for me to be right now. That’s it.

Nikki: I know you think that, but the long hours and the stress, I– I just worry about the toll it will take on you. Now, remember I wanted you to go on a lovely relaxing trip with me before you jumped back into the fray, but you shot me down.

Victor: Baby, where does this come from? Don’t I look healthy?

Nikki: You look very healthy and quite handsome, I might add. But, you and I should not be taking on any unnecessary stress. You know this. My ms and the health issues that you have battled. I am determined to take care of you just like you have taken care of me all these years.

Victor: I know you have always taken care of me, okay?

Nikki: I want you to be with me for a very long time.

Victor: And I want you to be with me for the rest of our lives. But sweetheart, I feel good around here, you know. I love the stress of this place, wheeling and dealing and international calls and straightening things out. And besides that, I’d be with my children. I see more of them here than I would see them sitting on my ass at the ranch. Man of leisure.

Nikki: Oh, I’m sorry. When have you ever been a man of leisure?

Victor: Well, but that’s exactly what I’m saying.

Nikki: Well, you’re right about working with your children. I mean, you will get to watch them go at each other’s throats daily. Where is the joy in that?

Victor: That is gonna stop, okay? That is going to stop as of now. That infighting will come to an end. And I’ll remind them of what they’re here for, what they’re working for. That is the family empire that I’ve built for them.

Nikki: Hm.

Victor: Yeah.

Nikki: So you will be bringing harmony and unity.

Victor: Yes.

Nikki: To adam and victoria. Do you really think that’s possible?

Victor: I’m going to whip them and the company into shape. To the point where nicholas will say, “hm. I think I’m gonna rejoin newman enterprises.”

Adam: I thought that we put our failed partnership behind us. I mean, you’re moving on, you’re working with sharon and I am humbling myself at newman.

Nick: It’s not about that and you know it.

Adam: Okay, I feel like I am missing something.

Nick: You bring trouble to everything and everyone. So how about this? You stay away from everyone I care about from now on.

Sally: Adam. Really, you should just go, please.

Adam: You told him, didn’t you?

Jack: I’m sorry about that.

Billy: It’s okay. So, I’m gonna take off but, uh, let me know if you hear from phyllis, please.

Jack: Will do.

Billy: Okay. Bye bye.

Diane: Bye. Jack, why are you the one dealing with phyllis in all of this?

Jack: I promise, I’ll explain that to you–

Diane: No, no, I think we should talk about it right now.

Jack: I think we need to focus on kyle right now. Why would you say he’s not okay? Should we be concerned?

Diane: I, yeah, I think, um, I think our son has lost his purpose. He’s afraid that he’s always going to be stuck in the middle. Those were his words. Forever in his father’s shadow. We need to help him.

Jack: I don’t know what else I can do. I’ve asked him to come back to jabot repeatedly.

Diane: I know, but I think he needs more than that. I mean, kyle needs to know that we value him, you know, not just as our son, but as an important part of the company.

Tucker: I hope your blowing me off was purely for nikki’s sake.

Audra: Of course. I don’t take kindly to the woman continuing to tell me how to live my life, but you know, she’s still my boss. So, it’s better for her to think that I’m heeding her warning about you than be defiant.

Tucker: Smart. We have a bigger problem anyway and you will need to help me solve it.

Audra: Will I? What are you talking about?

Tucker: The damn singer. The evidence that adam got his hands on. The pr team’s cover-up or our cover-up, or their cover-up.

Audra: Wait. How can that be? Adam was supposed to destroy those incriminating emails.

Tucker: Apparently, he decided to go a different route.

Audra: What did he do?

Tucker: He sold it to the abbotts.

Audra: Interesting.

Tucker: Yeah, it’s not the word I would use, but…

Audra: Well, big picture aside, I guess adam has ruined your plans to go after jabot. What are you gonna do now? Kinder bueno. <
