Mariah: All right. So, you all got the press packets, digitally. There’s gonna be a step and repeat out front for VIP guests and I promise the best angles because our guests are so fabulous. And remember, this is a celebration. It’s not a press junket, so no interviews, unfortunately. Okay? Have a great event, you guys. Oh, my gosh. Thank you so much. You are a lifesaver for bringing this.

Tessa: I’m dying to know what it is.

Mariah: Um, it’s a little surprise that Sharon has for later on.

Tessa: Oh, well, you can trust me, I’m family. You know I can keep a secret.

Mariah: No, no, no, no. Excuse me. Can you put this in the lounge somewhere discreet where nobody can see it? Thank you.

Tessa: Geez. Playing the wife card usually gets me a lot farther. I must be losing my touch.

Mariah: No, your wifely wiles will always work on me. But in this case, you’re gonna have to wait with everybody else.

Devon: Hey, Billy.

Billy: Hey. Hey, do you have a minute? I wanna touch base on a few things.

Devon: Yeah, sure.

Billy: Thanks.

Devon: How are you uh, settling in?

Billy: Yeah, good. Everything feels good. It doesn’t feel like too much has changed since I left. And to that end, did you get a chance to look at those proposals I sent over?

Devon: I did.

Billy: Ah, and you love them, I can tell.

Devon: Well, no, I didn’t have a chance to look at them enough to make a decision. And I usually like to weigh all the ramifications before I do that, you know?

Billy: Yeah. No, I– I do know that. I know that was a sticking point with Nate, but Nate was new to the game. My ideas come with years of experience.

Devon: Right. I’m aware of that, Billy. Not always successful though.

Billy: Well, don’t take too long. Some of those ideas have an expiration date.

Devon: Well, they might have to expire because I’m not gonna be rushed.

Abby: Hey, you two.

Chelsea: I told you they’d still be working.

Devon: Hi. How you doing?

Abby: Hey.

Billy: Looks like date night. Hopefully, you can convince Devon to leave the office early. I think he could use a little fun.

Abby: Uh, actually, we are headed to the launch party for Sharon’s new company.

Chelsea: Us too. Double date?

Diane: Can you help me with this? I can’t seem to zip it.

Jack: Here we go. Up and–

Diane: Thank you.

Jack: And clasped.

Diane: Well, that’s embarrassing. I’ve been struggling for minutes.

Jack: Well, we all need an assist sometimes. Speaking of which, is my tie too short?

Diane: No, your tie is perfect. Just like you. You look extra handsome.

Jack: And you look particularly ravishing.

Diane: Mm. I’m ready to network. I can imagine that tonight’s going to be a who’s who of Genoa City’s business elite.

Jack: Well, was that your nice way of saying conversation should be pretty dull?

Diane: No, with Mariah in charge, it can’t possibly be boring. Although, I am still upset that we lost her to Sharon. She’s been hard to replace.

Jack: Well, we can’t blame her for wanting to work with family.

Diane: Speaking of which, I’ve been thinking there’s an upside to Tucker figuring out our– Well, Kyle’s plan.

Jack: Do tell.

Diane: Well, Kyle can drop the act. He can stop pretending that you snubbed him for the top spot and you can promote him.

Jack: There’s plenty of time for that.

Diane: Yeah, but why wait? I mean, he’s certainly proven himself in our battle against Tucker.

Jack: Yes, he has, but as I said, there is no rush. What we have to rush is getting out of here. We’re gonna be late.

Nick: There she is, the woman of the hour.

Sharon: Aw, you shouldn’t have.

Nick: Those are from Noah and Faith.

Sharon: Oh, well, that’s very sweet of them. They both called earlier.

Nick: And this is from me.

Sharon: Oh, wow. Oh, my gosh. I’m really doing this, aren’t I?

Nick: You really are and me and the kids could not be prouder.

Sharon: Thank you. That means everything. Oh, Simone, could you put this someplace safe for me?

Nick: Thank you so much. Appreciate that. I, uh, saw Mariah upstairs whipping the press into shape.

Sharon: She’s amazing. I know how lucky I am to have her on my team.

Nick: You really are. It’s gonna be a stellar event and you’re not the least bit nervous?

Sharon: You know, not that long ago, this would have been very daunting, but tonight, launching my own company just feels like a natural fit. I– I had a dream the other night that put some things in perspective, and now, a part of that dream is reality.

Adam: Is that part of tonight’s theme? Dreams do come true?

Phyllis: Hey. Hey, sorry, I’m late. I was uh, at the Athletic Club when I got your text, so…

Summer: Oh, yeah. It’s fine. Sorry for the last change of plans.

Phyllis: No problem. So, why did you wanna change the venue?

Summer: Uh, well, they are serving this new specialty cocktail here. I was really craving it.

Phyllis: Oh, this one? Can I have a sip?

Summer: Uh.

Phyllis: Mm. It’s hard to get a seltzer water anywhere in this town.

Summer: Well, I hadn’t ordered my drink yet, Mom. Thank you. I was waiting for you.

Phyllis: Yeah, just maybe, you know. Okay, I happen to be aware of Sharon’s launch party in the jazz lounge at the Athletic Club, where I was just sitting.

Summer: Yeah, I didn’t really want to run into that crowd.

Phyllis: Or maybe you really didn’t want to run into Sharon and Chance?

Chelsea: Shall we head out?

Devon: I actually have a few more emails I need to take care of.

Billy: Well, take your time.

Devon: I always do. Uh, do you mind? It will only take a second.

Abby: No, no, we have time.

Devon: Okay.

Chelsea: No problem. We’ll just meet you guys there.

Abby: Okay.

Devon: Perfect.

Chelsea: Hey, uh, is everything okay with you and Devon?

Billy: Yeah, everything’s fine. Why?

Chelsea: Are you sure? It seemed a little tense in there.

Billy: Just a difference in business styles, you know? That’s all. We stay out of each other’s way for the most part.

Chelsea: Well, you are trying to run a company together. I mean, it is important that you talk every once in a while.

Billy: We talk. Look, I don’t think Devon expected me to come back at Jill’s request, right? So, I think he’s being a little aloof right now.

Chelsea: Aloof how?

Billy: When you walked in, I was asking him about a proposal that I sent his way that he’s been taking his time on. That’s about it. That’s the microscopic tension that you picked up on.

Chelsea: Is he stonewalling?

Billy: I think Devon’s used to having autonomy. He’s been running the company with Lily and now, I’m here and Nate’s back. Not to mention Jill, Mamie, and Chance.

Chelsea: That’s the opposite of autonomy.

Billy: It is. But Devon’s a pro. He’ll adjust.

Abby: How are things going working with Billy?

Devon: Oh, we’re finding our groove.

Abby: I can see that.

Devon: He’s just used to working one-on-one with Jack, fast tracking his ideas, you know? We operate a little different around here. But he’ll adjust. And I’m playing nice. I promise.

Abby: Yeah, I could feel the warmth when I walked into the room. But, hey, we are gonna keep work in the office tonight because this is a very important night for Sharon.

Devon: Yes. Yes, it is. And I promise that she and you will have my full attention.

Sharon: I’m so glad you both could make it.

Sally: Congratulations, Sharon. I’m really happy for you and your new chapter.

Sharon: Thank you. So am I. And these two scored a big win at Newman with Victor.

Adam: Things are going well, so I feel pretty lucky.

Nick: Don’t be modest, Adam. It’s not about luck. You tend to go pretty hard after the things you want.

Adam: Well, anything worth having is worth the effort. But yes, things are going well, so we all have something to drink to.

Nick: Just as long as you remember this night is about Sharon.

Sharon: And I couldn’t have done it without the two of you. Your input, even at the beginning, just helped me figure out what I wanted to create.

Nick: Well, it is great to see you realize that vision.

Adam: Absolutely. And Sally’s design business seems to be taking off quite well.

Sally: Thanks to Nick’s investment.

Adam: Have you considered hiring her to design your offices, Sharon?

Sally: Adam, you can’t just put Sharon on the spot like that. Can you go get me a champagne, please?

Sharon: I would like one too.

Nick: Yeah, we’ll take care of that. Let’s go.

Sharon: Once again, Adam seems to be your biggest fan.

Sally: I am sorry for the hard sell. He’s just been a huge cheerleader for my designs.

Sharon: And you know, that’s not what I meant.

Sally: I’m cautiously optimistic about us. Seems like the same could be said for you and Nick.

Sharon: Um, he’s just here as my date.

Sally: Just?

Sharon: Well, it’s not a date date. Nick just always manages to be there for me when I need him.

Adam: Champagne. Sorry about the, uh, awkwardness with Nick.

Sally: I mean, he seemed fine back at the club.

Adam: When we were very obviously going up to your suite.

Sally: Yeah, I mean, it’s just gonna take some time for him to get used to it, I suppose. Seeing us together in public.

Adam: How do you feel about that?

Sally: Well, I mean, I’d imagine no one’s really that surprised. Sharon wasn’t.

Adam: Did she give you a hard time?

Sally: Not at all. No. And as for how I feel, it’s wonderful.

Mariah: Hi. Nick, asked me to bring you this from the bar. I pointed him towards some muckety mucks over there. His job is to mingle and to hype you up.

Sharon: Well, thank you. How are you? How’s everything going?

Mariah: It’s great. Uh, the press is here. So, I gave the green light to start passing drinks. And then in a little bit, I’m gonna signal you for a short speech. So, your job is just to schmooze for now. And then at the end, we’re gonna pass out the Jabot gift bags full of goodies. And here is Jabot now. Hi, guys.

Jack: Hi, Sharon.

Sharon: Hi.

Jack: Congratulations.

Sharon: Thank you so much.

Jack: We could not be happier for you with this new chapter in your life.

Diane: It’s very exciting, although I’m not sure I forgive you for stealing Mariah away from us. I was telling Jack earlier that you’re really hard to replace.

Sharon: She is irreplaceable, but you won’t get any apologies from me. All’s fair in business.

Jack: Well, you’ve done a wonderful job, starting with the digital invitation.

Sharon: Oh, wasn’t that clever? That was all her idea.

Mariah: I mean, how are you gonna launch a tech company with paper invites? Am I right?

Jack: Well, you are missed at Jabot.

Mariah: I’m sorry to leave you guys on the lurch, but I had to go with my most favorite mogul.

Jack: Working with family is special. No argument here.

Billy: Hi. Uh, two champagnes, please.

Adam: Chelsea.

Chelsea: Hey.

Adam: Glad to see you. I actually, uh, meant to call you earlier.

Chelsea: Is everything okay?

Adam: Yeah, I just wanted to talk about Connor’s latest report card. You know, it’s not the A’s that we’re used to seeing, so I was a little worried.

Chelsea: He’s just getting used to his new school, Adam. You have to let him find his rhythm.

Adam: I guess you are right.

Sally: Connor’s a great kid.

Chelsea: Well, he’s a big fan of yours.

Sally: The feeling is mutual.

Adam: Billy, I heard you left Jabot. That was fast.

Billy: Yeah, it was. Although, I lasted longer than you did.

Adam: Do you have an office pool on how long you’re gonna last, uh, back at Chancellor-Winters?

Billy: Maybe. I’m not aware, you know, I’m not a gambling man anymore. Although, if you’re looking for a job, I can put a good word in. Not sure it’ll help, but…

Adam: No, thanks. Nothing can rival my co-CEO job at Newman.

Chelsea: What? Oh, that’s big news. I had no idea.

Adam: Yep. Back in the, uh, family business.

Sally: Yeah, he and Nick are doing great working together.

Adam: Well, so far so good. But Sally’s design business is really taking off and it’s something that she built from scratch, all on her own. Not like, uh, sliding back into a family business like you and me. It’s, uh, it’s all her.

Devon: Wow. Who are you looking for?

Abby: No, I mean, I just still kind of feel awkward at these things about running into Chance.

Devon: Oh, well, I don’t see him.

Abby: Well, he would never miss Sharon’s big night. I wonder where he is.

Phyllis: So, about Chance?

Summer: Okay, fine. You’re right. I didn’t want to see Chance with Sharon at the party. And can that please be the end of that conversation?

Phyllis: Well, I understand that you don’t want to make a play for Chance at that party, but that doesn’t mean that–

Summer: No, Mom, please, enough. I don’t want any more of your advice to go for it. Which by the way, Sharon heard you giving that to me. Very unhelpful.

Phyllis: Well, that’s very unfortunate.

Summer: It is unfortunate. Luckily, she was relatively cool about it.

Phyllis: I mean, I stand by my advice, I do. You know, and that she was so relatively cool about it, should tell you something. Obviously, she’s not that interested in him. Why should you give up your shot at happiness when Sharon’s not even going to fight for her man?

Summer: You know what? I think she was kind of cool about it because she was considering the source. She knew the advice was coming from you. And honestly, you know what, Mom? I’m glad that it happened because it kind of gave me this opening to shoot my shot with Chance and I did. I asked him to lunch and I gotta respect the fact that he said no.

Phyllis: Well, there is no problem with two friends sharing a meal together. I just want you to be happy.

Summer: Well, it’s not gonna be with Chance.

Phyllis: I’m so mad at Kyle.

Summer: Okay, where is that coming from?

Phyllis: I am so mad at him. I mean, him going on and on and on about how wrong you were for being loyal to me while he did the same exact thing with his sorry excuse for a mother. And then he cheated on you. It’s because of him that you’re doubting that you deserve a chance at happiness.

Summer: Look, Mom, I don’t want to hear it anymore. I don’t want you to keep telling me that I should just keep going after this guy. I don’t want to do it. I played dirty. I crossed lines to get what I want in the past.

Phyllis: Okay. All right.

Summer: Well, that’s just not me anymore. I’d like to think that I’ve grown beyond it. And if I took your advice now, I would be ashamed of myself.

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness. Was that a slam? Was that a hit on me? Well, let me tell you something. I will never, ever regret going after what I want.

Summer: Mom, can you relax? It was not a jab at you. >>

Phyllis: It sounded like a jab. It sounded like you were calling me immature.

Summer: I was not. I wasn’t. Trust me, I know that I wouldn’t even be here if you hadn’t crossed some lines.

Phyllis: Wow. You know, Summer, you were born of love and love alone. It’s the same kind of love I want for you in your life.

Summer: And I will have that when the time is right. And I’m okay with being alone until then. Oh, I gotta go. I gotta finish up some work before I call it a night.

Phyllis: Okay. You know I only love you, right? And I want you to have every bit of happiness that you deserve. And you deserve so much. You know that, right?

Summer: I hope that you know that I want that for both of us. Goodnight, Mom.

Phyllis: Goodnight.

Jack: Well, you’re both looking well. I guess this new job agrees with you, huh?

Billy: Uh, you know, no complaints. Let’s say that.

Diane: Mm. How nice for you.

Abby: Hi.

Jack: Hi, Abby. Hey, Devon, we were just talking about how my brother’s doing at his new job at Chancellor-Winters.

Devon: Oh, yeah, so far so good. He’s familiar with us, so he’s hit the ground running.

Abby: You know what? I anticipate nothing but success.

Chelsea: Me too.

Diane: Um, Devon, I’m sure this is a sensitive subject, but we’re all still worried about Tucker’s intentions towards Jabot. He’s been awfully quiet since the news of his scandal broke. Do you have any insights about that?

Jack: I wouldn’t mind hearing that myself.

Billy: Be nice to know if he’s coming after Chancellor-Winters still.

Devon: Yeah, I agree. I’d love to know all that too, but, uh, we’re gonna have to find that out from someone else because we don’t speak anymore.

Jack: Oh?

Devon: Yeah.

Jack: Well, I’m sorry to hear that. I know Ashley will be too. She always felt that his relationship with you and Dom was Tucker’s one saving grace.

Devon: Well, he’s gonna have to save himself these days, if that’s even possible.

Diane: Well, I guess no one knows Tucker’s goals at this point.

Abby: Well, you know what? I declare this a Tucker-free zone. This is Sharon’s big night.

Diane: Yes, that’s a good idea. And I have to say the signature cocktails are delicious.

Billy: That does look good and there’s a tray right behind me, so I’ll see you in a second.

Abby: Yeah, let’s go say hi to Nick.

Devon: Let’s do it.

Jack: Hey, at the risk of being a little blunt, how’s Billy really doing?

Chelsea: You really love your brother, don’t you? I can hear the concern in your voice.

Jack: I do love him. And I am concerned that he has made an impetuous decision based on his feelings for me.

Chelsea: You don’t have to worry about Billy. I know this may be hard to hear, but I– I really think leaving Jabot has been good for him.

Jack: Okay. That does sting a little bit. But you know what? If it’s true, I’m all for it.

Chelsea: I think Billy is in this wonderful phase of new possibilities, you know? Creating his own ideas instead of reacting to what he thinks you want. He’s trusting his instincts, which are better than he gives himself credit for. And he’s brilliant and– and thoughtful and I think very happy.

Jack: It seems I’m not the only one here with affection for my brother. If leaving Jabot is a good idea for him, I think spending time with you is even better.

Summer: Chance?

Chance: Hi. What’s up?

Summer: What are you doing here?

Chance: Um, I’m just reading up on all things Chancellor-Winters. It’s still a pretty steep learning curve for me.

Summer: But shouldn’t you be at Sharon’s launch party?

Christine: Oh, God. Come on. I’m not in the mood. I just wanted to come and have a cocktail, catch up on emails. No drama.

Phyllis: I couldn’t agree more. Which is why I’m buying. I’m buying. I want to apologize to you.

Phyllis: So, um, I just wanted to apologize for the way that I acted, um, last time we spoke. It was actually Summer who got me to see that I was–

Christine: That you were behaving like a bratty little teenager?

Phyllis: Well, I wasn’t behaving like myself, you know? Seeing you and Danny, I just– just fell into old patterns. That’s all.

Christine: Yeah, like I said.

Phyllis: Well, just being combative and angry, it’s– it’s not who I am. It’s not really who I am.

Christine: Could have fooled me.

Phyllis: Listen, um, I promised my kids that I would change. And when I made that promise, I meant it. I promised Danny. So here I am, making peace with you.

Christine: And here I am, not buying it. I have lived through way too many redemptions to believe for a second that this one’s for real.

Phyllis: Okay, well, I’m gonna take that as a challenge. I’m gonna– I’m gonna pull you over to Team Phyllis. Yeah, I’m gonna change your opinion of me.

Christine: Okay. So, I guess you’ll be wishing us a bon voyage.

Phyllis: Are you going somewhere?

Christine: Yeah, Danny and I are heading away this weekend. Just the two of us. Some great wine, a cabin with a fireplace. It was his idea. He planned the whole thing. You– you two are so close now. I– I thought that you would have known.

Summer: Chance, your new job can wait. You can’t be late for Sharon’s event. And I don’t even think that you have time to change anymore. You know what? It doesn’t matter what you’re wearing is not as important as you being there for her.

Chance: Whoa, slow down. I’m not going to the launch.

Summer: Why? Did you guys get into a fight or something? ‘Cause even if you did, you need to just put it aside because this is too important. You gotta be there for her.

Chance: We didn’t get in a fight.

Summer: Then why aren’t you going?

Chance: We broke up.

Nick: Mariah really killed it. But you know what I love most about this party? It’s drama-free.

Sharon: And to that end, thank you for being civil with Adam. It was a bit of a statement for him to bring Sally.

Nick: Oh, yeah. Adam is on top of the world right now. Back in Dad’s good graces and clearly, Sally’s too.

Sharon: And is it driving you nuts? And before you fudge your answer, yes, you were civil with Adam when he arrived, but there was a bit of an edge.

Nick: Yes. I don’t like seeing her with him because I know he’s going to do something to blow the whole thing up or hurt her and I don’t know, I guess I’m also relieved. Because a happy Adam might mean that he’s not gonna cause problems at the office for the next few weeks. You think I just jinxed it?

Jack: Is it presumptuous of me to assume that the two of you have found a way to work things out?

Adam: We are headed in the right direction.

Devon: All right. So tell me, how is Aria doing?

Mariah: Oh, she’s amazing. The hearing aids are working perfectly. And she gets this smile on her face every time we say her name. It just– Oh, it makes my heart melt.

Tessa: When I sing to her now, she responds.

Devon: Yeah?

Tessa: Yeah.

Devon: That’s gotta be such a special feeling for you both.

Mariah: It’s indescribable joy. How’s Dom doing?

Devon: He’s great. He couldn’t be better. He impresses me every day with something new he’s learned.

Abby: Hi. Is this the Proud Parents Club?

Tessa: Oh, I wanted to talk to you about the music classes you have Dominic in. We wanted to sign Aria up. Oh, looks like you weren’t as thrilled with the classes as you were.

Devon: Oh, no. I love the class. I think it’s a really good teacher.

Mariah: Uh, I am so sorry, guys, there are a few things that I have to take care of. One of which I need your help on. So, I’ll talk to you guys in a little bit. Sorry.

Abby: Yes. Go ahead and I’m gonna text you all the info on the music class.

Mariah: Yes, perfect.

Tessa: Oh, excellent. Thank you.

Abby: Your expression when they mentioned the music class. Did Tucker show up again?

Devon: No, he didn’t. He’s listened to what I told him and he’s staying away from me and Dominic.

Abby: Is that why you made that face? Because you’re disappointed?

Devon: No. Why would I be disappointed? He did exactly what I asked him to do.

Summer: I– I don’t understand. I thought you and Sharon were happy together.

Chance: We were, but uh, happy isn’t everything, huh?

Summer: What does that mean? Uh, look, I’m sorry, I don’t mean to pry. I just– I’m confused. You know, the last time I saw you together, you seemed good.

Chance: I agree.

Summer: She wasn’t upset that I went to the concert with you, was she?

Chance: No, no, no, no. It was nothing like that. No problems.

Summer: So, I mean, what was it? And look, you can tell me to mind my own business if you want.

Chance: No, it’s okay. I mean, it’s not a big secret or anything. We just realized we wanted different things at this point in our lives. Well, she realized it and she told me.

Summer: I’m sorry.

Chance: Yeah, me too. But you know what? She’s a smart woman and I think she might be right.

Summer: It’s not easy though, is it?

Chance: No, it’s not. We were having fun. It’s a shame to cut it short like that, but she knows her own heart better. And I think it’s best to take care of this now rather than later.

Summer: It still hurts though.

Chance: Yeah. I am sorry to miss the launch party. I wish her nothing but success. ladies and gentlemen. It is my pleasure to introduce the reason that we are all here tonight, my mother, Sharon Newman.

Sharon: Thank you. Thank you. And welcome everyone. Thank you so much for coming. Tonight is a very big night for me. And as I look around the room, I realize how much support I’ve had getting here. But there are two people I need to single out, Mariah Copeland for coming to work with me and for planning this amazing celebration. And Nick Newman, who is no longer working with me, but he helped me get to this point. I wouldn’t be here without him. I think everyone here knows how I came to own this company, but I won’t dwell on that. From dark places, light can shine. So, I am relaunching the company I inherited as a brand new venture. And with the mission to have a positive impact on the world. I’m pleased to announce that I will be donating half of all profits to causes that are very close to my heart and will uplift the community, namely raising awareness about underage alcohol abuse. It is a cause that my daughter, Faith, asked me to invest in. We will also be donating to Delia’s Foundation and to New Hope and the Abbott-Winters Foundation. As well as many other incredible charities. And we will not only be supporting these causes with our monetary donations, but they will all be receiving free software and technological support. Now, I promise to keep this short, but there was one more change I felt was important to announce tonight. Just to make this relaunch complete. This company needs a new name, free from its past history. One that connotes positivity, optimism, and making the world a better place. I give you… Cassidy First Technology.

Phyllis: Uh, no, I did not know about your trip. I did not know. Um, if Danny, uh, had told me I would have pointed him in a different direction for sure. I mean, cabins are so cold and drafty.

Christine: Oh, well, that’s what blankets are for, right? Ah, just to curl up in front of a cozy fire. I can’t wait. The two of us need to get away from all the distractions here and focus solely on one another.

Phyllis: Well, I am flattered that you consider me a distraction.

Christine: No, my definition of distraction is more off-putting.

Phyllis: Well, Danny doesn’t see me as off-putting. I guarantee you that.

Christine: See, right there, there it is. Proof that you haven’t changed, just trying to mark your territory, even when it isn’t yours to mark.

Phyllis: Well, you certainly haven’t changed, Christine. You’re still acting superior to everyone.

Christine: Present company, definitely. Thanks for the drink.

Phyllis: Hey, Danny. Listen, what are you doing right now?

Summer: What’s that smile for?

Chance: Oh, I was just thinking about you busting in here all worried. Thinking that I spaced on Sharon’s party. I bet you would have had a tux sent over here from Marchetti and demanded me to change in the bathroom if that was the case, huh?

Summer: Uh, don’t think that that wasn’t my next suggestion.

Chance: I knew it. I knew it.

Summer: No, I just know how hard it is to launch a business. And how much you really do need that support.

Chance: Yeah. Yeah, I know. I do feel bad not going, but we talked about it and it just didn’t seem right given the circumstances. What about you though? Why aren’t you there? You could’ve gone.

Summer: No, I had a deadline at work, so I just– I was stopping in here to get some fuel.

Chance: Oh, well, just like that, I’m reminded that I have years’ worth of annual reports to get to speed on.

Summer: Well, I will let you get back to that.

Chance: Well, thanks for looking out for me.

Summer: Yeah, that’s no problem. I will see you around.

Chance: See you.

Summer: You know, you can’t really work on an empty stomach, can you? What if I, um, bought you dinner?

Jack: Sharon, we knew you would do great things with this opportunity, but you have exceeded all expectations.

Devon: Yes. And we both want to thank you on behalf of the Abbott-Winters Foundation.

Billy: And thank you for your generosity towards the Delia Foundation. It’s incredible.

Sharon: Please, there’s no thanks necessary. I’ve realized at this point in my life that I want to give back. When this company dropped on my lap, it felt like an incredible burden at first. I couldn’t imagine being forced to manage a legacy from a man who ruined so many people’s lives. And then, I realized I could turn it around and do something honorable with it.

Billy: Well, I can promise you, we’ll put it to good use.

Devon: Yeah, you’ve made us all want to rise to the occasion.

Jack: Hear, hear.

Sharon: Jack, would you mind if I spoke with Billy and Devon alone for a moment?

Jack: Sure. Absolutely. Congratulations again.

Sharon: Thank you.

Devon: Jack.

Billy: What’s up?

Sharon: Okay, well, this is going to sound a little bit odd, but, um, I had a dream the other night and it just got me thinking about something that I wanna run by both of you.

Devon: Well, run it by us, please. We’re curious.

Sharon: Well, most of it was just– I don’t know, a crazy fever-like dream. But there was this one part where Cassidy first joined forces with Chancellor-Winters. You know, it’s not a bad idea for us to combine our technology and your content. It could be an unbeatable combination. Would you ever consider a partnership?

Billy: Well, I mean, I would love to hear more.

Devon: Yeah, we’re definitely intrigued.

Sharon: Okay, great. Um, well, we don’t need to rush into anything and of course, I am still going to be donating to your charities, even if we don’t partner up.

Devon: Well, thank you for saying. How about I have my assistant put something on the books for the three of us to have a meeting?

Sharon: That sounds great. All right. Well, um, enjoy the rest of the party.

Devon: Thank you.

Billy: Congrats, Sharon.

Sharon: Do you like it?

Nick: I mean, you could have given me a heads-up. I didn’t expect to get all misty-eyed at your cocktail party.

Sharon: I’ve been misty-eyed ever since Mariah first showed me that.

Nick: It’s perfect. The name, your whole mission. You’re building something special.

Sharon: I feel like Cassie’s been guiding me. She’s still a part of our lives, every day. Do you feel that too?

Nick: Of course. She would be so proud of you. And I have never been more in awe of you. Tonight, you triumphed.
