Billy: Thank you very much. Well, well, what are you still doing here?
Tucker: Why would I leave?
Billy: I just thought you would have left town by now.
Tucker: Yeah, that’s what I’m saying. Why?
Billy: Well, uh, I have proof that you and audra did a disgusting thing. Covered up the evidence for a statutory rapist. That’s not a good look. You also failed miserably when you tried to make it look like I embezzled money from my family company. I paid all that money back to jabot, by the way.
Tucker: Good boy.
Billy: And I can count on half a hand the amount of people that can actually stand the sight of your face, so i thought you would have took off.
Tucker: You probably forgot that I have a son and a grandson here in town who can stand the sight of me. And– and I’m not about to leave ’em again. And if you’re worried that I’m sticking around to exact revenge on you or the abbotts or jabot…
[ Scoffs ] I’m a lot of things, billy, but I’m not an idiot. You’re holding a bomb over my head. So you win. Congratulations. You’ve pretty much forced me to back off.
Billy: Backing off isn’t the same as abandoning, tucker.
Tucker: Oh, god, forgive me. Abandoned. Is that better?
Billy: Not even a little.
Tucker: Yeah, I don’t know what I could do to prove to you that it’s over for me. That I’m just done with you and the abbotts and your precious little company.
Billy: I can tell you exactly what you can do. You can leave genoa city for good and not turn back.
Traci: So, the florist has just finished setting up and that is done.
Jack: Thank god you changed that order. By the way, how did you remember that abby is allergic to lilies?
Traci: Abby is my niece and I am traci abbott. It’s what I do. [ Laughs ]
Jack: And I don’t know what I would do without you in my life.
Traci: Well, you will die wondering.
[ Both laughing ]
Jack: Everything all right?
Diane: Uh, not really. It’s noon and my dress for this afternoon should be here by now. At my alterations, I– I had very little to do, so I really don’t know what the hold up is.
Jack: Okay. It will be here, I promise. No one is more responsible than lauren.
Traci: Wait, you got your dress from lauren? Not one of the marchetti designers?
Diane: Yes, I saw it and I fell in love. I wasn’t thinking about the fact that phyllis happens to be lauren’s best friend.
Traci: Oh, that’s why you’re so nervous. You’re afraid that phyllis is going to sabotage your wedding celebration.
[ Both sighing ]
Lauren: Can I please have a latte? Just a splash of vanilla? Thank you.
Phyllis: I wanted you here because you are a crucial part of me being in this place, so.
Lauren: Me? How?
Phyllis: Because you were there for me and you supported me. You never gave up, even though I put you through a lot.
[ Lauren sighs ]
Lauren: Well, I love you more than I could ever be mad at you. And michael as well.
Phyllis: You’re an incredible friend. You stood by me when I never thought I was gonna get out of this mess. And you put your arms around me and you kept on telling me, “it’s gonna be okay.” And michael too. Ah, you two– you two are the best friends in every sense of the word.
Lauren: We always will be.
[ Phyllis chuckles ]
[ Both chuckling ]
Phyllis: Hey. [ Chuckles ]
Phyllis: Oh, wow. Please don’t tell me that’s what I think it is.
[ Phyllis scoffs ]

Lauren: Oh, thank you. If you think this is diane’s dress for her and jack’s wedding reception, you’re right.
Phyllis: Wow. This is unbelievable. You’re one of my best friends, lauren, and you are dressing diane in something from fenmore’s collection? I mean, just stick a knife in my back.
Lauren: All right, before you nail me to the wall anymore, you know I would never do anything for diane. You know me better than that. But jack called, he asked for a favor. What was I supposed to do? I– I love you both.
Phyllis: Okay. Well, what did you give jack? The dunce cap?
[ Lauren sighs ]
Lauren: You know, I have an idea for you. If you are selling this brand new me quest to your friends and family, why don’t you try and let go of this jack and diane thing?
Phyllis: Diane, no chance.
[ Lairen sighs ]
Lauren: Well, unfortunately, for better or worse, she’s who he wants to be with.
Phyllis: Okay, great. Listen, everybody thinks I’m a bad person. I get it, I get it, I get it, I get it, okay. It doesn’t make diane any less horrible. And by you doing this, I mean, you’re just cheering them on. “Hey, jack, I’ll dress up your bride to look like a princess while you walk down the path of misery.” I mean–
Lauren: You have no idea how hard this was for me.
Phyllis: Oh, really. They shouldn’t be getting married at all. You know that.
Lauren: You’re not planning on blowing up this reception, are you? Are you?
Traci: Oh, diane. Look, we all know that phyllis is phyllis and right now, she’s phyllis on probation. So, one false move and she finds herself behind bars. Look, after all she has been through, and after all she’s put her children through, she is not going to sabotage anything.
Diane: I’m sure she can find a way to ruin things without technically breaking any laws, if she puts her mind to it.
Jack: Only she won’T. She knows she’s already in trouble with the abbotts after this scheming with tucker. She’s not gonna pour gasoline on the fire.
Diane: Except she’s a walking fire hazard.
Jack: She’s not going to risk our telling daniel and summer what she’s been up to with tucker.
Traci: Besides, friend or no friend, lauren would never let that happen.
Diane: All right. Those are all valid points, but still–
[ Traci sighs ]
Traci: Relax, diane, please. I promise you, the dress will be here any minute. And it will be perfection. And you and jack will have a beautiful afternoon surrounded by people who care about you.
Jack: Hey, I don’t know where you’re off to, but please make sure you’re back in time for the reception.
Kyle: Yeah. Yeah, right. Um, that’s today?
Jack: Please tell me you’re joking.
Kyle: I am. But I do have a question.
Diane: What is it?
Kyle: Can I bring a date?
Tucker: I didn’t think it was possible, but you might even be more mercenary than I thought.
Billy: Might be offended by that if I actually care what you think, but just for fun, huh? Why don’t you tell me what you mean by that?
Tucker: Well, we both know that you would have thrown jack to the wolves if it meant taking over jabot yourself. And yet here you are working side by side with him to drive me out of town. If you don’t like mercenary, how about opportunistic, self-serving?
Billy: Hm. Not that I have to explain myself to you, but I’m just going to be very clear. I have only one objective, one objective, only, tucker.
Tucker: World peace?
Billy: It’s the same objective I’ve always had. Then, now, and in the future. That’s to protect my family and my father’s legacy. It’s not that complicated.
Tucker: Yeah. You sound just like ashley. I swear to god, sometimes I wonder what you abbotts really are. A family or a cult? Did you guys remember career day last year?
Traci: Um, sorry. Uh-oh. Uh-oh. Minor napkin emergency. Please excuse me while I handle this.
Jack: Thanks you, sis.
Diane: Um, kyle, when you say bring a date, are you thinking of inviting audra?
Kyle: No, no, mom. You know, audra’s not an option. Things have cooled off between us.
Jack: Well, that’s probably for the best, right?
Kyle: And why is that?
Jack: Well, you and I both know that was leading nowhere. It was a tryst to avoid the pain of your breakup with summer. I’m not judging. I’m just saying it happens.
Kyle: And so you keep saying, and for the 1000th time, you were wrong. Look, audra and I were having fun, which I definitely needed. Was it an escape from reality? Sure. Did I enjoy that there was some kind of clandestine element to it? Absolutely. But I really wish you would stop looking at it as some misguided tortured meltdown.
Jack: Okay. I’m sorry. I– I will try not to bring it up again.
Diane: Yes. Actually, your father and I were hoping that you and summer would give the appearance of attending together for harrison’s sake. That way he could at least see you pretending to get along.
Kyle: Believe it or not, we wouldn’t have to pretend, we really have been lately.
Jack: Well, good for you both.
Diane: Yeah. That’s a good first step.
Kyle: Mom, it’s not a first step. It is the only step. And nothing has changed. Summer and I are not getting back together, okay?
Phyllis: How could I blow up jack and diane’s party? I’m not even gonna be there.
Lauren: So, that’s a no?
Phyllis: I’d spend the whole time dry-heaving at the sight of diane.
Lauren: Oh, that’s a lovely visual. Look, I really hope you mean it because I’m not gonna be able to be there to supervise you. I’ve got to go to chicago on an emergency business trip.
Phyllis: You want me to deliver the dress?
Lauren: Oh, that’s so lovely, honey. Yes, and I’m gonna give you some matches and some lighter fluid. No, I’m not gonna let you deliver diane’s dress. Chloe’s gonna get here, hopefully soon, and do it for me. All right. So, besides this reception drama, how are you? When do you start working with daniel?
Phyllis: Oh, mm. It’s not finalized.
Lauren: But you’re happy about it? And you don’t wish you were still working with nick and sharon, do you?
Phyllis: Well, I don’t know. My son made it– um, he just said that I would be under the microscope the whole time I was working at omegasphere, so.
Lauren: Do you blame him? I mean, you’ve got a long way to go with him, honey.
Phyllis: I know. I know. I just can’t help but think that him offering me the job is sort of a pity gesture.
Lauren: He’s throwing you a life raft. You should be grateful that he’s throwing you one at all after everything that you put him and summer through. Oh, thank god you’re here. Diane’s probably wondering where her dress is and is about to have a panic attack.
Phyllis: That’d be horrible.
Lauren: Uh, okay. I have a plane to catch. Thank you. Um, keep the garment bag away from her and–
Chloe: You know, you can count on me.
Lauren: Thank you. You promised, no trouble. No fireworks, please.
Phyllis: Yeah, no problem. See you later.
Lauren: Okay. Yes, you will. All right. Talk to you later.
Chloe: Bye. Later, phyllis. You know that feeling of having to rewash dishes
Billy: Well, it’s been real, and just so you know, don’t even think about crashing the festivities this afternoon.
Tucker: Are there festivities? Oh, I love a good party. Where and what time do you want me there?
Billy: This party’s off-limits to you. And I’ll be keeping an eye out and I’ll be monitoring the airspace because we both know you like a little helicopter landing. You know, tucker, you think you’re smarter than, oh, everyone on this planet, but only a fool would think that.
[ Tucker sighs ]
[ Piano music playing ]
Phyllis: Hi. I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to interrupt. Keep on playing. It’s beautiful.
[ Piano music playing ]
[ Diane sighs ]
Diane: Okay, kyle. I am not going to bother you about your personal life anymore. All right? I just– I just want you to be happy. I just want you to wake up with a sense of purpose and– and have a reason to get out of bed each morning.
Jack: I second that.
Kyle: Thank you. I know you both mean that, I really do.
Jack: And I am just curious, um, when you said you wanted to bring a date and you said audra was not a possibility, were you thinking of someone else?
Kyle: Uh, you know what, forget about it. It’s too early to introduce harrison to a stranger, especially at a family celebration.
Jack: Well, I’m glad you feel that way because your mother and I were hoping we could keep you a little busier at this reception than perhaps you planned. We have a favor to ask.
Kyle: Sure. What is it?
Diane: Well, jack came up with the idea at dinner last night that since all of our family and friends will be here today, that we would, um, renew our vows.
Jack: And we would be honored if you would agree to officiate. My late father-in-law lit up a room,
Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.
Kyle: You’d be honored for me to officiate your vow renewal? I– I’m honored you would even ask me, I mean, yes, yes, of course.
Diane: Oh, good. Thank you. Oh, thank you.
Kyle: Oh, I’ll get it.
[ Door clicks open ] Hi.
Chloe: Hi. So, lauren had an emergency. She had to head over to fenmore’s in chicago. She is so sorry, she is sending along her apologies, she– she’s really sorry that she couldn’t make it.
Jack: Oh, we’re sorry she won’t make it, but believe me, we understand.
Chloe: And I am so sorry that I am extremely late.
[ Laughs ] You know, kids. Um, actually, it wasn’t the kids, it was me, I feel like I shouldn’t blame them.
Diane: No, no, no, no apologies necessary. I have to admit, I was getting a little crazy imagining all kinds of scenarios, but yes, that’s my dress, and it’s still stunning. Ugh! I really appreciate you bringing it by.
Chloe: I was happy to do it.
Diane: Yeah, and all things considered, it was really generous of lauren to let me, of all people, wear one of her designs.
Chloe: Oh, of all people?
Diane: Well, given that she and phyllis are so close, I’m sure I’m not at the top of lauren’s “let’s be friends” list.
Chloe: Oh, well, you know who is at the top of that list? This guy. Jack is basically one of her favorite people in the whole world and she was not going to pass up the chance to make his day extra special.
Jack: Lauren also knows how happy you make me. And as long as that’s the case, as long as you don’t get tired of me, she is always going to be in full support of us being a family again.
[ Piano playing ]
[ Danny chuckles ]
Danny: All right, you know what, that’s it. I have been working on this bridge for hours. I can’t get it right. I gotta take a break.
Phyllis: Uh, I didn’t mean to interrupt, although, my timing’s perfect. Can I buy you a drink? A glass of your driest rose, please. Oh, thank you. What would you like, danny?
Danny: Oh, no, thanks. I’m good.
Phyllis: Are you sure?
Danny: Yeah, I better not. I’m meeting daniel for a late lunch.
Phyllis: Ah. Hey, um, be honest with me. How much does daniel hate me?
Danny: Well, I think “hate” is a pretty strong word. He will always love you, phyllis, always.
Phyllis: You sure about that?
Danny: Absolutely, he just doesn’t trust you.
Phyllis: Okay. [ Laughs ] That’s understandable.
Danny: Yep, and he’s definitely disappointed.
Phyllis: Does he understand how hard I’m working at turning things around? Does he get it? Thank you.
Danny: I think he does, and he really hopes you can. But I really see him struggling to be civil with you because of what you put him and summer through, and it’s a real shame, you know? It makes him sad. Hell, it makes me sad.
Phyllis: You know what makes me sad? Is how much I am judged… and hated by people in this town. People who claimed they loved me. Everybody in this town has made mistakes. But, for some reason, nobody’s willing to give me the benefit of the doubt. That makes me sad.
Billy: There’s the man of the hour. I hope everything went smoothly this morning.
Jack: As a matter of fact, believe it or not, it has gone smoothly. I assume your brunch with the new head of r&d went well?
Billy: It did, she’s great. Super talented. I think she’s gonna be a great asset for us. In fact, I had a wonderful morning, and then I ran into tucker.
Jack: Why is he still in town?
Billy: I don’t know, but he made it very clear that he’s not going anywhere anytime soon. By the way, I’m going to forward you an email.
Jack: What is it?
Billy: Confirmation that I returned all the funds into jabot’s account after supposedly embezzling them.
Jack: I don’t need to see that, I trust you.
Billy: Either way, it’s there, but thank you for that.
Jack: It is such a classic tucker mccall scheme, I’m surprised we didn’t see it coming. And him pulling phyllis into it, as vulnerable as she is these days, couldn’t have been too much of a challenge.
Billy: I don’t think that was a challenge at all.
Jack: Billy, I hope you know, I didn’t doubt you, not for a second, when those jabot funds disappeared. I– I hope you know that.
Billy: Jack, those funds went into my personal account, okay? It’s only natural to assume I had something to do with it.
Jack: Not anymore.
Phyllis: It’s like everybody in this town sees me as this person that I’m not. Do you know what I mean? Well, that I’m not anymore. You know, they see me as the she-devil that… chews men up and spits them out. Devour souls and ruins lives.
Danny: Do you have any idea how many people would love nothing more than to trust you and give you the benefit of the doubt? Yeah. They could’ve walked away, but they didn’t, they’re still here. They’re still pulling for you. Even me.
Phyllis: Even you? After everything I did to you? The lies, seduction… drugs… sex. You should feel flattered.
[ Danny laughs ]
Danny: Wait, f– flattered?
Danny: I’m sorry, how do you figure?
Phyllis: I don’t know.
[ Laughs ] Because– I don’t know, there are four billion men on this planet and you’re the one that I decided to do that to. So, you should be flattered.
Danny: That– that’s right. Yeah, absolutely, no. Thank you for the compliment, really.
[ Phyllis laughs ]
Phyllis: I’m kidding. I mean, you’re welcome, but I’m kidding.
[ Danny chuckles ]
Danny: But you see what I mean? I’m still here. Daniel’s still here. Summer’s still here. There’s so many people that are still here that haven’t given up on you.
[ Phyllis sighs ]
Phyllis: They’ve come close.
Danny: Close doesn’t count. Now, all we need is some proof that we can trust you rather than having to take your word for it and find out later. “Nope wrong, sorry, maybe, next time.”
Phyllis: That sounds lovely. I just– I don’t know where to start, where do I start?
Danny: With you, phyllis. With presenting a positive attitude, okay? Instead of this “woe is me” posture that you’ve been carrying around for as long as I’ve known you. Making you happy isn’t anyone else’s job. This is your job and you know what? Happiness doesn’t come from somewhere out there, it comes from right here.
Phyllis: Oh, my god. You really are sunshine and roses. So, you’re saying that it’s that simple? In life, I just find a silver lining.
Danny: That’s how it works.
Phyllis: That’s how it works.
Phyllis: That sounds exhausting. [ Laughs ]
Danny: You know, you say things like that because it’s clever and witty. But it’s just distracting from what’s really going on with you. You scoff at any suggestion anyone makes that just might help you turn this thing around.
Phyllis: All right, so you say that I should just go through life and pretend that everything’s great? And I could just take on any challenge that comes along because I’m phyllis summers? And I choose my own happiness? Is that your advice?
Danny: I don’t want you to pretend it, I want you to feel it. And not for daniel, for summer, me or anyone else. You have to do this for you. Stop looking for someone else to fix this. Feel good about yourself. Start believing in yourself and you’d be amazed how quickly people start believing in you too.
Jack: I suppose it’s too much to ask that when you saw tucker, he was checking out the athletic club and heading to the airport.
Billy: No such luck. He did say that he was going to back off of his plan to come after jabot and I was very clear when I said backing off is not abandoning.
Jack: Even if he had said “abandoning–”
Billy: Which I pointed out.
Jack: Yeah, but I still don’t trust him. In the unlikely event he does give up on jabot, why would he stay in genoa city?
Billy: He didn’t want to turn his back on dom and devon, his beloved son and grandson. Whatever.
Jack: Wow. How touching.
Billy: Which is exactly why I think we should have kept working to turn devon against tucker in the first place.
Jack: We have already been through this, that was the wrong move.
Billy: No, it was one we disagreed on.
Jack: And we still do.
Billy: Enough said.
Jack: End of discussion.
Billy: Mm-hmm. End of discussion.
Jack: Thank you. Now, all we have to worry about is keeping tucker from blowing up this celebration.
Billy: He claimed to know nothing about it.
Jack: You believe him?
Billy: Hell no.
Billy: Believe me, I’m gonna keep my eye on him.
Jack: Mm– I don’t want you doing this.
Billy: No, I want to do that.
Jack: I want you being part of this celebration. Enjoying everyone together.
Billy: Jack, I’m gonna enjoy keeping him on the outside. Trust me, and with his flair for dramatic, I’m gonna have to watch out for helicopters, swat team, plague of locusts.
Jack: Let tucker mccall be the security team’s problem. I am sick and tired of this man and his drama invading my thoughts and my family life.
Billy: Believe me, I’m sick of him in general.
Jack: He does not deserve another moment of time or energy or thought. Today is about love and romance and celebrating together. I want it to be perf– perfect.
Is it menopause
or something else?
Jack: You look like an angel.
Diane: I feel like a queen.
Phyllis: So, are you gonna finish that song or what?
Danny: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. Yeah, yeah, absolutely. Come on. Yeah. Come on. Have a seat.
Danny: Yeah. Have a seat. All right. Let’s give it a go.
[ Piano melody playing ]
Danny: That’s it. That is the bridge that I’ve been struggling with all morning. So seriously, what do you think?
Phyllis: Oh, I think it’s amazing, I love it.
Danny: I like it too. Hey, thanks for the inspiration.
Phyllis: You’re welcome. Thank you… for being so empathetic and compassionate with me.
Danny: Well, I figured when you find someone who’s down and they sincerely want to stand back up, you don’t kick them, you offer them a hand.
[ Both chuckling ]
Tucker: 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.
Tucker: Yeah, it’s not the word I would use, but…
Audra: Well, big picture aside, and I guess adam has ruined your plans to go after jabot. What are you gonna do now?
[ Tucker sighs ]
Kyle: But it’ll be fun.
Traci: And wait, so you’re gonna officiate, today?
Traci: That’s so romantic.
Kyle: A little last minute, but I can pull it off.
Traci: I love that, that’s fantastic.
Kyle: I have a few tricks up my sleeve, let’s step over here, come on.
[ Traci chuckling ] Summer, has harrison settled down yet?
Summer: Uh, not a chance. The nanny’s gonna take him to the park to see if that helps, he’s– he’s a little overexcited.
Traci: Yes, I noticed that and I can’t imagine where that came from.
Kyle: Neither can I. I was a very laid-back child.
Traci: [ Laughing ] You’re not buying any of this, are you?
Summer: Not for a second.
Traci: Good. Good.
[ All laughing ]
Kyle: But seriously, thank you for checking in on them.
Summer: It’s my pleasure. You know that. Uh, excuse me, I’m gonna go get a glass of champagne.
Chance: Thank you.
Jack: Could I please have your attention? First of all, welcome. And thank you for being part of this celebration of love and family and friends. As a side note for any naysayers still among us, my bride and i ask that you look into our eyes this afternoon and see for yourself just how genuine, how strong, how powerful our love story is.
[ All cheering, applauding ]
Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless…
Phyllis: Wait, does christine still hold a special place in your heart, even now?
Danny: Of course, she does.
Heather: I’ve decided to wrap up my law practice in europe and move back home.
Daniel: Are you thinking of going back to savannah?
Heather: No, we’re moving here, genoa city.
Nick: I absolutely hate it that adam is manipulating you. It’s just adam. He’s always going to be him and it’s clearly affecting you. I can’t go through this again.
Sally: What are you saying?
Tucker: I just don’t want any more chaos in my life. Just peace and quiet.
Devon: Well, I hope that’s true.
Tucker: You can count on it.
Devon: I have another question for you. What’s your connection to aunt mamie?
