Daniel: Okay, here’s one. Three bedrooms, two and a half baths. That will give me an office and a guest room. Don’t really know if I need all that space, but I guess we’ll figure it out.

[ Knocking on door ]

[ Daniel sighing ] Heather. When did you get here? Um, come on in. Sorry.

Heather: Yeah. I– I got in this afternoon, actually.

Daniel: Is lucy with you?

Heather: No. Uh, she’s in lisbon with paul and christine. I just came back to wrap up the last of those pro bono cases that I handled over the summer. Two more days in court.

Daniel: Okay. It’s great to see you.

Heather: Yeah, you too.

Daniel: Is everything all right?

Heather: Yeah, everything’s fine.

Daniel: Are you sure? Because you– you seem a little flustered.

Heather: Just busy. I have a lot, you know.

Daniel: Yeah, but it’s more than that, isn’t it?

Heather: I don’t know, daniel, it’s, um, it’s, uh…

[ Heather exhaling ] This–

Daniel: Whoa, whoa, okay. Okay. What is it? Look, it’s– it’s me. You can talk to me. What’s going on?

Diane: Thank you for today. It was a perfect, beautiful afternoon. Well, almost perfect.

Jack: No, no, no, don’t even go there. I am going to pretend that, that interruption from tucker never even happened. Nothing is going to spoil this moment. And I am standing here alone with my beautiful wife, telling her how much I love her.

Kyle: Thank you.

Audra: I’m guessing you want me to reconnect with kyle so I can use him. You expect me to manipulate him into doing something that benefits you.

Tucker: You know the plan.

Audra: Kyle was never part of the plan.

Tucker: Hey, you keep your eye on the prize. Jabot. We’re gonna take over that company and you are gonna step in and you are gonna run it. Don’t worry about kyle. He’s a means to an end. Unless, of course, he means more to you than you let on.

Audra: Wow, kyle. Twice in one night. You know, I think the universe might be trying to tell us something.

Kyle: Hello, audra.

Audra: Hi, how are you doing? We didn’t really get a chance to talk at the reception.

Kyle: Is that why you followed me here? Or did you have something else on your mind?

Traci: Jack and diane seem so happy, don’t they, billy?

Billy: Yeah. No, it was a very lovely ceremony.

Traci: Yeah. And for kyle to be the one to pronounce them husband and wife is just, I mean, how awesome is that? Billy. Billy!

Billy: What? Yeah.

Traci: Do you figure if you stare at that long enough you’re gonna– you’re gonna be able to tell what’s inside?

Billy: I’m not just staring at it. I mean, are you not curious about what’s inside here?

Traci: No, I don’t care one little bit what sick idea of a wedding gift tucker mccall has given them. And jack doesn’t care either, which is why he’s told us to ignore it and throw it out. So, what are we waiting for?

Audra: So, even if ashley gave you a sign, you’d still go after jabot?

Tucker: Absolutely. She showed me who she really is in paris. And so, now I’m left to believe that everything that came before is just a game. A ploy to pull me back in.

Audra: But why?

Tucker: God knows. Probably some long ago resentment she can’t let go of.

Audra: I think you’re wrong. No, I think she did fall back in love with you. She just found it harder to break away from her family than she thought.

Tucker: I think you missed your calling. Sadly, therapists don’t make the kind of money you’d be interested in though.

Audra: I know what I saw.

Tucker: Not from personal experience, I assume?

Audra: I’ve never been in love in that way.

Tucker: Well, take it from me, it’s highly overrated.

Audra: Well, at least you’ve been there. And I think you still are.

Tucker: In love with ashley?

Audra: Yes. And I also believe that if you gave yourself permission, you know, to go back to that place, you’d give her another chance and call off this attack.

Tucker: Let me be perfectly clear about something, audra. There is nothing that will stop me from dismantling the abbotts and taking everything they hold dear. Nothing.

Both: Hey.

Tucker: What a nice surprise. Sit down. Let me buy you a drink.

Devon: How about, uh, first, you tell me how sincere you really were about making peace with jack earlier. This isn’t charmin!

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by… -you got this buddy.

-During an asthma attack,

Tucker: My best wishes to jack and diane were absolutely sincere.

Devon: Since when? What’s changed?

Tucker: Me. My attitude about things. Ashley broke my heart, so I was determined to have her family suffer the way I had suffered. I was driven to have my revenge on them until I realized I can’t hold the abbotts accountable for what she does. Any more than you should be held accountable for something I might do.

Devon: Well, that sounds reasonable.

Tucker: It was as much for me as it was for them. Let me tell you, vengeance can be exhausting.

Devon: I can imagine.

Tucker: Something tells me you’re not quite believing me though.

Devon: I would like to believe you.

Tucker: But?

Devon: But you don’t make it easy all the time. At all. I got conflicting stories that I’m hearing about you. People contacting me worried about what you’re gonna do. I know you came to town going after the abbotts and wanting to make them pay for whatever bad things you thought they did to you.

Tucker: Yeah, it’s all true.

Devon: So, you can understand then why your sudden shift in attitude might surprise some people.

Tucker: Including you?

Devon: Especially me.

Tucker: Well, I can’t think of any other way to prove it to you than the actions I take going forward. I realize that I have disappointed you quite a bit in the past, but I’m telling you right here now, I have no ulterior motive. I feel like my demons have been silenced. 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?

Daniel: Can I, uh, get you something to drink? You want a water or anything?

Heather: No, I’m fine, thanks.

Daniel: So, what’s– what’s– what’s going on? What’s this all about?

Heather: I don’t even know where to start. Um…

Daniel: Well, why don’t you… just tell me what you’re feeling?

Heather: Abject terror?

Daniel: Seriously?

Heather: Uh, no. It’s not that dire. I’m sorry, I didn’t– I didn’t mean for it to come out like that. It’s just that ever since I left genoa city, I– I– I’ve been feeling a little off balance. And, um, it– it– it was like something felt unresolved and I– I don’t– I don’t know what or why.

Daniel: So, this wasn’t just about wrapping up a case?

Heather: No, but it did seem like a good reason to come back and try and figure it all out. It actually started with that conversation with phyllis, when she asked me if I ever thought about returning to the states to live. I mean, that definitely took me by surprise, but it did get me to thinking that– that maybe this feeling of restlessness that I’ve had isn’t just a passing thing. Because ever since I left, the longing to come back home is so strong. I… I can’t ignore it anymore.

Daniel: Well, look, I am all for you guys being closer so I can spend more time with lucy.

Heather: That’s what I came back here to tell you. I’ve decided to wrap up my law practice in europe and move back home.

Daniel: Are– are you serious? I– I don’t– I don’t know what to say. Heather, that’s– that’s fantastic. I mean, I’m– I’m happy. I’m happy for me. I’m happy for you. What– what are you thinking? Are you thinking of going back to uh, savannah?

Heather: No. We’re moving here. Genoa city. I want lucy to be close to her dad.

Audra: I’m not gonna deny it. I did follow you here.

Kyle: Why?

Audra: To talk to you.

Kyle: Oh, the last time we talked, you fired me and then you made it very clear you wanted nothing to do with me, or with us.

Audra: Well, the truth is I missed us.

Kyle: What are you angling for audra?

Audra: I’m not angling for anything. You know, I just regret that things cooled between us. That’s all. You know, I went to the party to tell you that, but you were so occupied all the time, I didn’t really have the chance.

Kyle: You could have tapped me on the shoulder. I was around.

Audra: Yeah, but with nikki and diane glaring at me all night, I kind of lost my nerve.

Kyle: Hm. Because you’re the self-conscious type?

Audra: In some instances, I actually am.

Kyle: Okay. Sure. Well, here we are. So, what now?

Audra: I guess that’s kind of up to you.

[ Kyle chuckling ]

Kyle: Did you really just say that to me? I wasn’t the one who put the brakes on us. That was you. Because you were scared of being fired. I was fine with doing our little thing in private without nikki knowing about it, but then she forced you to ditch me and you lost my number. So, forgive me if I’m not feeling very generous towards you right now.

Audra: Look, everything you’re saying is true. All of the above. But what I’m telling you is, look, I made a mistake and I will do anything I can to try and make it up to you. (Buzz) we’re such great friends we should have a nickname,

Jack: You know what I’ve been thinking?

Diane: What?

Jack: We never danced.

Diane: We didn’t?

Jack: Nope.

Diane: Well, you know, the whole afternoon was such a blur, but you’re right, we didn’T.

Jack: Don’t you think we should?

Diane: Oh, I’m sorry, jack, but the band went home.

Jack: Oh, who needs a band?

Diane: What?

Jack: May I have this dance, mrs. Abbott?

Diane: Of course, mr. Abbott. Aw.

Jack: Hm. We did it. We proved them all wrong. We stood up before god and family and the citizens of genoa city and declared our love for all to see. And they can’t doubt us now. Even nikki was supportive.

Diane: Yeah. And who could’ve imagined that?

Jack: I am just so proud of us. We have shown the world what love and commitment can do. And they have no choice but to accept it, to embrace it, or just turn and walk away. What more could we want?

Diane: Hm. I can think of something.

Jack: Oh, what?

Diane: That this night would last forever. Hm.

[ Door slamming ]

Billy: You know, we could be squandering a real opportunity here.

Traci: I don’t follow you.

Billy: Well, uh, this wedding gift, whatever this is, could be insight into what tucker’s thinking. Right? I mean, [ Sighs ] He loves to believe that he’s more clever than everyone else. Like a riddle from the riddler.

Traci: Or it could be just some– something hateful and despicable that he’s aiming at ashley and the abbotts specifically.

Billy: Uh-huh.

Traci: Or it could be a blender.

[ Laughs ] Oh, I don’t care. Why are you obsessing about this, billy? Come on. Let’s just take it to the trash, open up the lid and put it in there.

Billy: Hm. Okay. Fine.

[ Billy exhaling ] To hell with it.

Traci: Oh, billy, what are you doing?

Billy: No, I’m just satisfying my curiosity.

Traci: Come on, jack said that–

Billy: I know what jack said. He said, get rid of it and I will. I just want to see what’s inside first and we’ll start with the card. “May this symbol of harmony, balance, and patience bring those elements to your new life as husband and wife.” That’s very sweet. It rhymes. Okay.

[ Traci sighing ]

Traci: Hm. I guess that’s it, huh?

Billy: Hm.

Traci: No evil dolls or exploding clocks.

[ Traci laughing ] I hope you’re satisfied.

Tucker: What makes you think there’s some connection between me and your aunt mamie? I hardly know her.

Devon: Well, why did you look at her like that?

Tucker: Like what?

Devon: Like you did. The look you gave each other was clearly more than two people that barely knew each other.

Tucker: I’m sorry, I don’t know what look you’re referring to. Um, if there was a look, you’re misreading it. I mean, seriously, what connection could there possibly be between us? Are you guys watching? This is my favorite part.

Devon: Actually, you know what? Let me back up for you. Um, recently, mamie just made an investment into chancellor-winters and it came completely out of the blue. She didn’t tell me or lily beforehand that she was gonna do it. And her reasoning behind that, I don’t really buy.

Tucker: That’s very interesting, but what does that have to do with me?

Devon: I don’t know what it has to do with you. That’s why I’m asking. Trying to connect the dots. Because when you came to town, you were going after jabot and then you planted audra in my company because you were interested in it. Then, you just recently lost your chance at a new venture with ashley and now you’re claiming that you’re not interested in jabot anymore. And then, suddenly, mamie shows up and she buys a stake in chancellor-winters. So, what should I make of it?

Tucker: It sounds like a series of random, unconnected events to me.

Devon: Really?

Tucker: Yeah.

Devon: I know what I saw between you and mamie. You can sit here and deny it all you want.

[ Indistinct ] You might as well just tell me what the connection is.

[ Both exhaling ]

Audra: God, I missed that.

Kyle: Uh-huh.

[ Audra sighing ] So, what now?

Audra: Now, we continue to see each other.

Kyle: Really?

Audra: Yes, really.

[ Kyle scoffing ] I want that.

Kyle: What changed?

Audra: Nothing.

Kyle: Hm.

Audra: I just decided you’re worth the risk.

Kyle: Hm. Well, I’m flattered, but nikki has her antennas up. So, even if we’re careful, she’s bound to find out eventually.

Audra: Then, let her.

Kyle: I’m serious.

Audra: So am I. You know, I’m no longer concerned with what nikki thinks or does. And if she’s gonna fire me over having a private life, so be it.

Kyle: Wow. That’s a switch. It’s almost like you have a backup plan.

Audra: Hm. Maybe I do.

Heather: What do you think about us moving back here?

[ Daniel scoffing ]

Daniel: I’m thrilled.

Heather: Really? Oh. Sorry. Thank god.

Daniel: I– I’m sorry, but did you think that I wouldn’t be?

Heather: I wasn’t sure how you’d react. I was, um, I was practicing what I would say to you in my room like I was going over arguments for court. I was really nervous.

Daniel: I– I just want to know why though. I mean, you know that I wanted to spend more time with lucy. I– I just– I thought after everything that I put the both of you through that you never wanted to ever be close to me ever again.

Heather: That was a really bad time. You hurt us deeply. Both of us. You destroyed our family.

Daniel: Yeah. No, I’m– I’m aware. Thank you. Um, and you know, that’s something that I’ve struggled with. I struggled, wondering if you would ever be able to forgive me. And I mean, really forgive me. And I think it’s a miracle that lucy and I have been able to get so close again, but… well, for you to say that you wanna come back here. I don’t know what to say. I mean, that’s beyond my wildest dreams.

Heather: I do forgive you, daniel. I have seen such growth, such humility. I mean, you are finally becoming the man I always knew that you could be. So yes, I completely forgive you. Try killing bugs the worry-free way.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Daniel: You have no idea how much that means to me to hear you say that.

Heather: I had to let all that go, daniel. I mean, as much for my own sake as yours. The anger and the resentment was weighing me down. And then, I saw how you changed. How you were with lucy. How much she loves you. How she forgave you and it just went away.

Daniel: [ Exhales ] Well, um, I, for one, am glad that you did not give up on me.

Heather: So am I.

Daniel: And I’m not gonna lie. I kinda love the idea of the two of you moving here. You know, I can see the both of you every single day and I don’t know, we can just be a family again.

Heather: That’s all I needed to hear.

Kyle: So, what’s this backup plan of yours?

Audra: Hm?

Kyle: Well, you don’t seem to be scared of nikki’s wrath anymore. So, what are you cooking up?

Audra: I just missed you. Isn’t that enough?

Kyle: I am flattered audra, but I know you. So, what else are you doing?

Audra: I never said I had a backup plan, okay? Just that, you know, there’s a few possibilities out there. That’s all.

Kyle: And you aren’t gonna tell me what they are?

Audra: Well, I don’t wanna jinx it, kyle. Not until I actually know what’s gonna happen for sure. Anyway, I’d much rather talk about you.

[ Kyle sighing ]

Kyle: What about me?

Audra: Hm. Well, it’s been a while since, you know, you left newman media. I’m sure you have a few irons in the fire.

Kyle: Oh, since you fired me?

Audra: After nikki forced me to fire you, okay? I regret caving into her. I do. And, you know, I– I made a mistake. And didn’t I just prove to you how I really feel about you? So, can we please just drop it?

Kyle: Mm. Well, consider it dropped.

Audra: Thank you.

Kyle: Well, yes, I do have a few possibilities of my own.

Audra: I mean, if you don’t want to tell me that’s fine. It’s– it’s only fair.

Kyle: No, I’m not scared of jinxes. So, there are rumblings at jabot that my dad is, surprise, surprised, not too happy with billy’s performance. So, there may be an opening there soon.

Audra: Oh.

Kyle: That’s an underwhelming response.

Audra: Well, I’m sorry, kyle, but even if that were true, do you really think jack would give that position to you?

Diane: I’m so glad that kyle agreed to officiate.

Jack: Seems to me the least he could do for his parents, don’t you think?

Diane: That’s true. I loved it.

Jack: It was lovely. I liked it a lot too.

Diane: I saw it as a sign that he is fully on board with our marriage. And you know what else I saw as a positive sign? That he didn’t bring a date to the wedding.

Jack: Need I remind you audra showed up?

Diane: Yeah, but kyle barely even acknowledged her. And he and summer seem to be getting along, so I don’t know, maybe there’s hope for their little family.

Jack: Maybe.

Diane: You don’t seem very optimistic.

Jack: Oh, I don’t know. If it happens, it happens. The one thing I do know is nothing good will come of us pushing him. And audra did show up and as I saw it, she was pretty interested in rekindling things.

Diane: Yeah. But it takes two people on board to make that happen. And kyle definitely seemed not to be.

Tucker: Yes, I know mamie as someone to say hello to, but that’s as far as it goes. I don’t know how you go from there to– to me using her to get my hooks into chancellor-winters?

Devon: So, the look you gave her was just–

Tucker: It was just a look. It was a glance, recognition. Oh, look, there’s mamie. Frankly, I’m afraid you’re buying into the town’s collective suspicion of me. If you saw something in that look, maybe mamie has an ulterior motive, but it’s got nothing to do with me.

Devon: Okay.

Tucker: Is that okay, yes I believe you? Or, okay, I still have my doubts?

Devon: That an okay, that I’m choosing to believe you.

Tucker: It still doesn’t solve your problem though, does it?

Devon: What do you mean?

Tucker: Well, you’re concerned there’s something going on with your investor. What is it? Maybe I can help? You know that feeling of having to rewash dishes

Jack: Is that what I think it is?

Billy: Yes. I opened up tucker’s wedding gift.

Traci: Honestly, jack, I tried.

Jack: I’m sure you did.

Billy: And so, what?

Jack: So what? Once again, you have completely ignored what I asked you to do.

Billy: I was curious, jack.

Jack: Oh. And your curiosity led you to this plant? I’m sure there was a great payoff for that. Huh?

Billy: No, no. What do you think?

Jack: You don’t want to know what I think?

Diane: You know what? I’m glad that billy opened it.

Jack: Why?

Diane: Why? Because it takes its power away. If we would have just thrown it away and never discovered what it was, we’d always be wondering and talking about tucker’s gift. You know, is it a message or a warning or an olive branch?

Jack: Frankly, I don’t give a damn.

Diane: Really, jack? Are you that much more evolved than the rest of us?

Jack: I didn’t say that.

Billy: Well, you sure implied a whole hell of a lot.

Jack: You’re both completely missing my point. The reason I want that thing thrown away is I don’t want tucker mccall in any way, shape, or form intruding on what is one of the happiest days of my life. Here we are talking about tucker, speculating about tucker. I have had it up to here. I want this over and done with.

Diane: All right. Well, I would like to think that this gift is tucker’s way of expressing the same thing. That– that he’s done being at war with the abbotts and he wants peace.

Jack: I wish I shared your optimism. Nothing that man has ever done should be taken at face value. I know you see this as a harmless gift, but tucker isn’t done.

Tucker: Tell me what’s going on. Why are you worried about mamie buying a piece of chancellor-winters?

Devon: It’s– it’s just a feeling I get.

Tucker: That’s all good. I can work with that.

Devon: Uh, I didn’t know it was this late. I need to get back home.

Tucker: Okay, some other time then?

Devon: Sure. Some other time.

Tucker: Um, devon.

Devon: Yeah.

Tucker: Are we good? Do you still suspect that I’m involved in some kind of conspiracy? Whatever it might be.

Devon: Tucker. Honestly, if you meant what you said earlier, then I’m happy and relieved.

Tucker: But you still have your doubts? I just hope someday that, uh, we come to a point where suspicion of me is not your first instinct.

Devon: I mean, that’s really up to you, right?

Tucker: Indeed it is.

Devon: I’ll see you later.

Tucker: See you.

Heather: One of the good things– thank you. That my dad taught me was that life is too short to not go after the things that are important to you. So, I did it when I moved to portugal, even if it was to escape a bad situation, and I guess I’m doing it again. Deciding to leave a successful law practice over there to start all over again in a new place.

Daniel: Oh, well, you know, I wouldn’t say you’re starting all over again. And, you know, there’s no doubt in my mind that you’ll be just as successful here in genoa city.

Heather: Thank you. I appreciate your support.

Daniel: Yeah. And, you know, you have options too. If you want to stay in private practice, you can do that. If– if you want, I can talk to devon and lily, see if maybe there’s something they can set you up with over at chancellor-winters.

Heather: I don’t want any favors.

Daniel: This would be doing them a favor. Trust me. Um, when are you planning on making this move? What’s the timeline look like?

Heather: Immediately? If you’re taking an antidepressant So, you know, she doesn’t

Heather: The reason why I wanted to come back right away is to get lucy situated in school. So, you know, she doesn’t miss too much of the year.

Daniel: That makes sense and I can take care of that while you get everything packed up.

Heather: That’s great. Thank you.

Daniel: Yeah. Look, if there’s anything that you can think of that you want or need, just ask and I’ll get it done.

Heather: I will.

Daniel: This is really happening, huh?

Heather: It’s crazy, huh? You know, life just surprises you and takes you to places you never thought you’d ever go.

Daniel: Or come back to you.

Heather: You made this really, really easy, daniel. Thank you. This went so much better than I thought it would or however I feared it would go.

Daniel: I’m a little surprised that you thought it could go poorly because I gotta tell you, I am 100% on board here. I– I cannot be happier.

Heather: I’m about to grab a bite. You want to join?

Daniel: Uh, I– I would– I would love to, but I actually have a dinner appointment that I’m already late for. So, um, what about a drink tomorrow?

Heather: Yeah. I’d love that.

Daniel: This is– this is gonna be great.

Heather: Yeah, I think so too.

Daniel: So tomorrow.

Heather: Tomorrow.

Daniel: I’ll call you.

Heather: I’ll look forward to it.

Kyle: Why do you think my dad wouldn’t offer me the top job at jabot? I’ve had it once before.

Audra: Yes. But he’s always figured out a way to push you aside whenever it suited him.

Kyle: I was responsible for some of that too.

Audra: I mean, I think it’s great that you’re taking some ownership, but, you know, even if billy is pushed out the door, wouldn’t logical wisdom make diane next in line?

Kyle: Mm-mm. I don’t think so.

Audra: Why not?

Kyle: I love my mother, but between you and me, she’s not ready for a high-level position like that. She hasn’t been there before and on some level, my dad knows that too.

Audra: Hm. Okay. So, what happens if jack doesn’t get rid of billy?

Kyle: Then, I’ll just have to help things along.

Diane: I’m not saying tucker is as zen as he claims to be. He’s still a snake. But now we have some leverage with that snake and maybe that’s why he’s giving up the war.

Traci: I suppose it’s possible.

Billy: Uh.

Jack: I don’t know.

Diane: We’re so used to being on guard with everything that tucker does or says or even thinks. We need a new perspective. Jack, we were just outside and you were saying how nice it was to be together and not worry about the world and all its problems. We just renewed our wedding vows. It is time for a fresh start. We shouldn’t waste our time or our lives waiting for tucker mccall to drop another shoe.
