Nate: I have some brilliant contacts in the mental health and psycho-neurological communities. Say the word and I’ll make arrangements to get you tested, accurately diagnosed and treated. And to ease your mind, they’ll be as sensitive to the importance of discretion in this situation as I am.

Victor: All right. And I’m gonna reiterate, not a word of this to anyone, all right? Not even to victoria.

Nate: She’d be relieved to hear you’re doing something about this. But it’s your decision to make, not mine.

Victor: And by the way, not a word of this to adam, all right? And if any of the doctors should call you back, tell them to contact you on your cell phone, not the regular landline, not by email. ‘Cause if adam picks up on any of this, it’ll be disastrous.

Nate: You’re that suspicious?

Victor: Well, can you blame me? I bet you adam is smelling the blood in the water already. And by the way, this conversation stays between us. You and me. Or else.

Mamie: Well, good morning, nephew.

Nate: Aunt mamie. Good morning.

Mamie: Oh, that’s a touch blase. May I join you or would you rather be alone?

Nate: No, no. Come, come join me.

Mamie: Well, thank you. Now, why are you looking like that?

[ Nate sighing ]

Nate: Nothing new. Just a– another conflict surfacing at newman.

Mamie: Mm-hmm. Well, I know I should say that I’m sorry, but neither one of us is going to believe that. The way I see it, you have two choices. You can keep drowning in that newman turmoil or you can realize that there is more to life than that and just move on.

Jack: Good morning.

Diane: Mm. Morning. Hey.

Jack: You were up early. Did you maybe see ashley?

Diane: Uh, no. Mrs. Martinez says she left a while ago.

Jack: Yeah. Did she say where my sister was off to?

Diane: No. And you know mrs. Martinez, she didn’t think it was her business. She just said that ashley had some loose ends to tie up and she wasn’t sure when she’d be back.

Jack: Well, you know what that means.

Diane: Yeah, I’m afraid I do.

Jack: I’m afraid the advice I gave her about staying away from tucker didn’t sink in. Damn it. They are probably together right now.

[ Knocking on door ]

Nate: I know you’d love nothing more than to lure me away from newman enterprises.

Mamie: With good reason.

Nate: But this would be a terrible time for me to leave right now.

Mamie: Terrible for whom? Your colleagues or for you? Believe me, they are thinking about themselves, so you should only be thinking about you.

Nate: I can’t do that to victoria, aunt mamie. I can’t leave her in the lurch.

Mamie: Oh, my. It sounds like things are getting ugly indeed.

Nate: Nice try. But I’m not gonna share any details, so you might as well stop snooping.

Mamie: Oh, come on. You can’t blame your auntie for trying.

[ Jack huffing ]

Jack: Voicemail again. Unbelievable.

Diane: Jack, you’ve gotta let this go. If ashley feels like this is something she needs to do, then there’s nothing you can do to stop her.

Jack: I know you’re right, but we just got her back. The idea of her going into the lion’s den to try to trick tucker into a truce. Is it any wonder why I worry about that?

Diane: I understand. And I– all right, I cannot believe I’m about to defend her, but you and billy just tried to do exactly the same thing. Why is it okay for the two of you and not for her?

Jack: Billy and I haven’t married him twice.

Diane: Yes, there’s that. Which means that ashley knows tucker probably better than anyone else does. So, if anyone has a chance of getting through to him, it’s your sister.

[ Jack exhaling ]

Tucker: Come in. When did you get back?

Ashley: Oh, boy. Does it really matter?

Tucker: How was your flight?

Ashley: Please don’T. I can’t take the small talk.

Tucker: Okay. Well, you have rejected every effort I’ve made to reconnect and talk things out so far, so I assume you must have something very pertinent and, uh, important on your mind.

Ashley: I think it’s important, yeah.

Tucker: Well, don’t tell me, let me guess. You’d like to know what nefarious scheme I have plotted against your family, right? I can clear that up for you right now. None. And I made that clear to jack as well.

Ashley: Okay.

Tucker: Okay.

Ashley: I hope it’s true.

Tucker: So, are you here to try to chase me out of town? Jack and billy already tried and failed. Pathetically, I might add.

Ashley: Um, why don’t you just shut up and I’ll tell you why I’m here tucker.

Tucker: Oh, yes, ma’am.

[ Ashley sighing ]

Ashley: I’m sorry.

Nate: Well, you never told me what exactly you havcellor-winters.

Mamie: Nate, all snooping aside…

Nate: For how long exactly?

[ Mamie scoffing ]

Mamie: Some exciting things are about to happen over at chancellor-winters. This would be the perfect time for you to get in on the action. Do you really want to miss out on that so that you can stick around when things seem to be making you pretty unhappy?

Nate: I never said I was unhappy and you seem to be glossing over some details.

Mamie: How so?

Nate: Well, you never told me what exactly you have planned for chancellor-winters. And why you think it’s gonna make jill’s head explode.

Mamie: All in good time, nephew. All in good time.

Nate: See, the more you tease and deflect, the more I begin to suspect you have some kind of coup in the works. And let me tell you right now, that would be a monumentally bad idea.

Tucker: Yeah, I wish I could believe your apology, but unfortunately, I don’T.

Ashley: I didn’t think it was gonna be easy.

Tucker: That’s the problem. It seems a little too easy. You want some coffee?

Ashley: Sure. I’d love a cup.

Tucker: Because, uh, I texted you recently and I asked you if there was any way back from where we are and you responded with a very emphatic no. So, what happened? Did you have some kind of change of heart over boston or cincinnati on the flight home?

Ashley: Not really a change of heart. Maybe I just started listening to my heart.

Tucker: Oh, yeah. Wouldn’t that be peachy? Except I see right through you, ashley. You’re hoping I will let my guard down.

Ashley: Yeah, well, jack said you were gonna react like this.

Tucker: Jack said? Ha. Oh, you gotta love the irony.

Ashley: Yeah. Actually, I don’t love anything about this. Not even a little bit. It’s a struggle.

Tucker: Okay. Well, just for kicks, let’s pretend I did believe your apology. What would this I’m sorry of yours actually look like?

Jack: You’re not wrong. Ashley knows tucker better than any of us ever will, as much as it sickens me to say that.

Diane: Well, then you’re going to have to trust that she knows how to handle him.

Jack: How can I do that when all he has done is manipulate her and terrify her?

Diane: I know. And you’ve done your best to remind ashley of that. She’s a grown woman, jack. These are her choices, not yours.

Jack: I know. I know. I just hate the idea of her being anywhere around that low-life son of a bitch. After everything he’s done to her, everything he’s done to all of us. Hey.

Diane: Morning.

Jack: Where you off to?

Kyle: Harrison’s got a day off from school, so I thought I’d take him to the park for some soccer and one of those strawberry ice cream sandwiches he thinks we should have every night for dinner instead of vegetables. Oh, um, and linda is gonna pick him up from the park since I am headed from there to a meeting at a prospective job.

Diane: A prospective job? What is it?

Jack: Working for whom? Anyone we know?

Kyle: Um, yeah, it’s nothing solid yet and I don’t want to jinx my chances by talking about it.

Jack: I wish I could find some way to convince you to stop looking outside the family and come back to jabot.

Diane: That makes two of us.

Kyle: You can make that happen right now. All you have to do is replace billy with me. So, if you’re ready to do that, I will cancel my meeting in the blink of an eye.

Jack: I’ll tell you what. I’ve been thinking about this. I am willing to offer you the coo position at jabot, effective immediately.

Kyle: I don’t want the coo position. It’s an insult and a demotion. I want my old job back. Look, dad, it’s this simple. I earned it. I deserve it. You want me to come back? I would love to come back. But under that one condition. So, what’s it gonna be? Yes or no? All righty then, enough said. Thanks anyway, dad.

Diane: I understand your dilemma. I do.

Jack: But?

Diane: But kyle’s right. Coo is a demotion. It’s a token position without any power. If you ask me, the right thing to do is to get rid of billy before he harms the company and bring kyle back as co-ceo.

[ Jack sighing ] When my doctor gave me

Jack: I understand the instinct to bring kyle back to replace billy at jabot, but I’ve said it before, the thought of what that would do to my brother, mentally and emotionally, it scares me. Could send him into another self-destructive tailspin and I’d be responsible this time.

Diane: If billy is that fragile, then he shouldn’t be running a company.

Jack: Jabot is not just my legacy. It’s billy’s too.

Diane: And kyle’S.

Jack: Yes. And kyle’S. Kyle has every right that billy and I have to work in the family company, but… he’s the younger generation.

Diane: That’s right. To move forward. He’s done the work. He’s proven himself. You know that.

Jack: Yeah. Look, I want to do the right thing. I haven’t figured out what that is yet.

Diane: Well, do you want to hear another possibility?

Jack: God, yes, please.

Diane: You could step down and let kyle and billy run jabot together. I mean, think about it. You’d be ceo emeritus. You wouldn’t have to think about running a corporation anymore. You and I, hey, we could do all the things that we’ve fantasized about since we’ve gotten back together. We could have dinner in monaco, wake up in milan. We can fly harrison into the alps to go skiing.

Jack: Now, you’re bringing harrison in. You don’t fight fair.

Diane: I know. Is it working?

Jack: It’s food for thought, yeah. Actually, off the top of my head, I only see one downside.

Diane: And what is that?

Jack: Well, with kyle and billy running jabot, how long do you think it’ll be ’til they’re both ready to kill each other?

[ Kyle laughing ]

Kyle: Why on earth would I consider joining forces with tucker mccall?

Audra: Because one way or another, he will get his hands on jabot.

Kyle: What did tucker offer you?

Audra: The top job.

Kyle: Figures.

Audra: And you running it with me. Okay, tucker prefers to stay on the sidelines. Okay, he wouldn’t be involved in the day-to-day. Hey, we could run jabot the way it should be run.

Kyle: And all I would have to do is betray my mother and father.

Audra: Look, all I’m asking you to do is to think about yourself for a change. You know, what’s best for kyle? Instead of settling for whatever crumbs your family throws at you. Your father, he had his success, a great career, okay? Now– now, would it really be the end of the world for him to step back and see his son take the reins? Yeah. Isn’t that how family dynasties survive?

Kyle: No, no, no. What you’re proposing will blow up our family dynasty.

Audra: Not if you were on board. Not if you and I took over that family business and made it vital and exciting again.

Kyle: You’re not family.

Audra: Well, you know, jack clearly doesn’t want to give you the chance. Tucker and I can. And it would be the mistake of a lifetime if you turned it down. So, kyle, are you ready to sit in that jabot co-ceo chair you deserve?

Kyle: I am tired of being pushed to the side. Treated like jabot isn’t my birthright just as much as it is my father’s and my uncle’S. I’m going to take control of my future by helping you and tucker take control of jabot. Oh. Heads up, harrison. Oh, ah, my fault, bad throw.

[ Kyle laughing ]

Audra: That boy’s got talent. Much like his father.

Kyle: Hold that thought.

Audra: Hm.

Kyle: Hm.

Audra: Consider it held.

Kyle: So, am I still meeting with tucker today?

Audra: Yeah. Last I heard. You know, I– I called him earlier, but it went straight to voicemail.

Kyle: So, I should assume it’s a go, unless I hear otherwise from you, right?

Audra: Yeah, probably. Possibly, maybe, or not.

Kyle: Is there a problem I should know about?

Audra: Well, you know, it’s tucker, and, uh, frankly he doesn’t trust you.

Kyle: Well, I can’t blame him. I am an abbott after all. What can I do to change his mind?

Audra: Well, bearing in mind that we are dealing with tucker mccall, you know, he wants to put you up to some loyalty test.

Kyle: Okay. What kind of test?

Audra: That’s to be determined.

Ashley: Well, tucker, I guess I was kind of hoping we could figure out the I’m sorry part together.

Tucker: You must have some idea or two in mind. No? Okay, how about this? Let’s just hit the rewind button, ashley. And– and transport ourselves back to paris on our honeymoon. And be there the way it was before you yanked my world apart and just forget about the fight. And proceed from there. Can we do that? Could you?

Ashley: Not after what happened.

Tucker: No, yeah. Yeah, I figured.

Ashley: And I’m not turning my back on jabot. That hasn’t changed.

Tucker: Oh, absolutely not. You made that perfectly clear in paris. And you made it perfectly clear that the company we spent months planning is never gonna happen also.

Ashley: That’s true.

Tucker: So, you’re not sorry that you couldn’t possibly exist without jabot? And you’re not sorry that you took a wrecking ball to our company? What exactly are you sorry about?

Ashley: Can we just try to be civil with each other?

Tucker: Civil with each other?

Ashley: Yeah, that would be a step in the right direction.

Tucker: Did you or did you not tell jack that I terrified you in paris?

Ashley: I did tell him that. Yeah.

Tucker: Terrified you?

Ashley: Yeah.

Tucker: Would you like to apologize to me for saying that?

Ashley: You did terrify me. I’ve never seen you that angry before, ever. You were beyond angry.

Tucker: Well, you just totally rejected me is all. No big deal.

Ashley: You know, that’s how you chose to look at it, tucker. You took my change of heart as a complete rejection of you. It wasn’t a complete rejection of you. So tell me, do you take any accountability for any of this?

Tucker: I got mad, yeah.

Ashley: You got mad? You were in a blind rage, tucker, and you– you made me afraid of you. And the fact that you don’t have any regret for that tells me everything I need to know about you.

Tucker: I have regret for it. I have sincere regret for it. Not for what I said though. But yes, I’m sorry for the way I said it.

Ashley: Well, that’s a step, I guess. I mean, it’s a small step, but look, I take responsibility because from your perspective, I could see that– that it– it felt like I was tearing a part of your world out from under you, okay?

Tucker: I’d say a little more than a part.

[ Ashley sighing ]

Ashley: It wasn’t calculated. Please look at me. It wasn’t calculated. It just evolved.

Tucker: Okay.

Ashley: And the bottom line is, okay, you and I are both responsible for what happened between us and– and I’m– I’m not here to warn you. I’m not here to threaten you.

[ Tucker chuckling ]

Tucker: Okay.

Ashley: I mean, can’t we just take a step and try to put this anger behind us?

Tucker: And then? ‘Cause your words sound very heartfelt, but what is it you’re actually willing to do?

Ashley: I don’t have any answers for your questions.

Tucker: In that case, this seems like an uncharacteristic misstep on your part.

Ashley: How so?

Tucker: Well, you come over here for a meeting and you have no idea what you want to get out of it.

Ashley: You know, I was just starting the conversation, tucker. I don’t know where it’s going to lead.

Tucker: Okay. So, you don’t know what you intend to do. What do you expect me to do?

Ashley: I don’t know. You wanna throw me out, slam the door behind me? Is that all we have left after everything?

Tucker: Maybe. Probably.

Ashley: You know, or you can take the first step like I’m trying to do and we can just agree that we are both to blame for what happened.

Kyle: It makes sense. Tucker would probably suspect I would head straight home from a meeting with him and tell my dad exactly what was happening.

Audra: But you would never do that, right? Because you’d be betraying me as well.

Kyle: No, I wouldn’T. And who better than you knows how discreet I can be?

Audra: You know what else I know about you? That I can discuss in public with your little boy maybe running up to us at any moment.

Kyle: What’s that?

Audra: I know that you’re ambitious. I know that you are incredibly smart and I know that there’s no doubt in your mind that joining tucker and me is a brilliant way of guaranteeing your future.

Kyle: Hm.

Audra: Unless there’s been some new development at home or at jabot since the last time we talked?

Kyle: Nope, nothing. I’m still on the outside looking in. In fact, I made it clear to my dad this morning that the only way I would return to jabot would be if I replaced billy.

Audra: How’d he react?

Kyle: He threw me a bone, offered me the coo position.

Audra: That’s a measly bone.

Kyle: Yep.

Audra: You know, selfishly, I’m glad he passed on your one perfectly reasonable condition. Objectively though, I– I don’t understand what he’s thinking.

Kyle: Yeah, I think I do actually. Look, it’s not for my dad’s lack of faith in me and he’s worried about what it would do to billy.

Audra: Well, I– I mean, that doesn’t make any sense. Look, I don’t know, billy very well, but he seems very capable of landing on his feet no matter what happens.

Kyle: Trust me, billy may seem tough and shrewd, but once you look past the designer suits and the cocky swagger, billy has a fragile psyche that implodes whenever he feels like he’s failed or he’s been rejected. He’s been in some dark places and I imagine my dad doesn’t want to feel responsible for sending him there again.

Audra: I had no idea. You know, he hides it very well. What kind of dark places?

Kyle: Uh, gambling, drinking, just… you know, let’s not get into it. I mean, billy and I have our differences, but he’s still my uncle.

Audra: So, here’s the question you might want to think about. You know, jack and billy might implode when tucker succeeds at ripping jabot away from them. Can you honestly say you’re okay with that?

Ashley: I heard you were in town. Hi!

Mamie: Ashley, I’m thrilled to see you. Oh, you look wonderful.

Ashley: So, do you. It’s so good to see you. Hi, nate.

Nate: Ashley. Good to see you. Welcome back.

Ashley: Thank you.

Mamie: I didn’t know that you had come back from paris.

Ashley: Yeah.

Mamie: I’m so sorry to hear that your marriage didn’t work out.

Ashley: Oh, yeah. Well, another one bites the dust. I’ll be okay.

Mamie: Oh, I know my ashley, so I have no doubt about that. So, why don’t you sit and have some coffee and we’ll talk all about it.

[ Mamie laughing ]

Ashley: I have a bunch of things I have to do at the house, but why don’t you come home with me? Everybody would love to see you and then you and I can plan a dinner, just the two of us.

Mamie: Oh, I wouldn’t miss out on that.

Ashley: Oh, yay. Okay. Great.

[ Phone chiming ]

Nate: Everything okay?

Mamie: Well, it will be when you say yes and promise to come over to chancellor-winters. And don’t expect me to give up.

Ashley: Oh, she’s not kidding, but you probably already know that.

Nate: Oh, I have no doubt.

Mamie: Let’s go home.

Ashley: Okay. See you later. How’s everything at newman?

Nate: Business as usual.

Ashley: Okay. I think I get that. Bye.

Mamie: I’ll be in touch.

Ashley: Come on.

Nate: I know you will be.

Kyle: By the way, there’s something you should know if you don’t know already.

Audra: Uh, what’s that?

Kyle: Ashley got back from paris last night?

Audra: Um, I didn’t see that coming. Does tucker know she’s back?

Kyle: I’m not sure.

Audra: Did she say anything about tucker or, um, what the plans are for the two of them?

Kyle: Not a thing, but that’s typical ashley. She plays things pretty close to the vest.

Audra: The first time you see her since things blew up between tucker and her in paris and you didn’t think to ask?

Kyle: We only had a few minutes to talk.

Audra: And she didn’t say anything about tucker or their fight?

Kyle: Well…

Audra: Uh-oh, what?

Kyle: She warned me that you’re using me.

Audra: I’m using you? I can’t wait to hear how I’m doing that.

Kyle: Mm. Well, according to ashley, you and tucker are just using me for information. About her, jabot, the abbots. You name it.

Audra: Well, she’s not wrong. Except for the using you part.

Kyle: I mean, I understand why she would go there. I am a great source of information. That’s why me being involved with tucker’s plan benefits us all. Look, as long as I get what I want, I’m good. I’m ready to see this through.

Audra: Mm. So, she didn’t manage to plant even a tiny seed of doubt in your head about me? Is there any part of you that’s wondering if maybe, you know, I am just using you?

Kyle: Mm. Nope. In fact, there’s a certain symmetry to it. When, uh– when we first got involved, my family kept accusing me of using you.

Audra: For what?

Kyle: The distraction of the pain from my divorce with summer.

Audra: Yeah. I– I– I thought that might be the case at first. And not that I minded. That made sense.

Kyle: Well, the pain is gone and yet, I’m still here. Ah.

Audra: Oh.

Kyle: Oh, more on that later.

Audra: Okay.

Kyle: In the meantime, I have to admit, my curiosity is killing me. I’m dying to know more details about how tucker plans to pull off this takeover of jabot.

[ Phone chiming ]

Audra: Um, okay. Oh, you’re not gonna have to wait much longer for that answer. From tucker. “I’m ready to meet kyle if he’s still available.”

Kyle: Tell him, yes, I am still available. I’ll go tell the nanny we’re leaving and say goodbye to harrison.

Audra: Okay. Um, hey, I– I just got your text. Uh, yeah. I’m at chancellor park with kyle right now.

Tucker: Perfect timing.

Audra: Hey, before we get there, uh, a quick heads up. Ashley is back in town.

Tucker: Yeah, that’s old news. She just left my room.

Audra: What happened? How did it go?

Tucker: I’ll fill you in later. Right now, bring me kyle abbott.

Kyle: Ready?

Audra: Yeah, I– I just called tucker and I told him we’re on our way.

Kyle: Well, let’s not keep the man waiting.

Audra: Right.

Nate: Sounds good. Thanks. Hey. Weren’t you fired?

Kyle: I was, thanks for reminding me.

Nate: Ah, and didn’t nikki make it clear that if you want to keep your job, you and kyle are to stop seeing each other.

Audra: Nate, what business is it of yours? And why do you care either way?

Nate: Why do I care? You know what? You’re absolutely right. I shouldn’T. Enjoy your morning, you two.

Audra: Okay.

Mamie: I ran into this beautiful lady at the athletic club and I’m just dying to know how she’s holding up after her marriage so suddenly fell apart.

Ashley: Oh, my god, mamie.

Jack: So, you went to the club?

Ashley: I went to the club and I saw tucker.

Diane: And you’re all right?

Ashley: Ah, yeah. Does jet lag count?

Diane: How’d it go?

Ashley: Pretty much as expected.

Jack: I practically begged you to stay away from tucker. He’s a wild card. He is volatile. He is dangerous. And the last time you were with him, he terrified you. Your words, not mine. And yet, first thing in the morning, you’re off to see him.

Ashley: Well, only because I feel like I’m the best person to get inside his mind and find out what he’s planning.

Jack: Oh, and I’m sure he knew that was your agenda the moment he opened his door and saw you.

Ashley: Maybe. Well, anyway, I– I said I was there to give him the opportunity to apologize to me.

Diane: And how’d that go?

Ashley: I’m fine. First steps were taken. Now, could I please get some coffee? I’m dying here.

Jack: Ash, I am begging you now. Stay away from tucker. This game you’re playing is dangerous. Just let it go.

Tucker: Hey, thanks for agreeing to meet.

Kyle: Uh, my pleasure.

Tucker: Sit down. So, I’m gonna get right to the point and I’m gonna be blunt because it saves time. Audra tells me you are willing to betray your family in order to secure a higher position at jabot. Is that true?

Kyle: Okay. Yeah, that was blunt. I wouldn’t put it quite like that–

Tucker: It’s a yes or no question.

Kyle: She’s right. I am.

Tucker: Okay, in that case, tell me why I should for a second believe you’re telling me the truth.
