Devon: What’s up?

Daniel: Hey, how’s it going?

Devon: Oh, you tell me. Have you told lily about you and heather?

Daniel: Well, I’m doing what I said I was going to do, and I’m waiting until lily’s in a better place emotionally to hear the news.

Devon: Okay, so the plan is just to keep cheating on her until that time comes?

Lucy: That gallery show was awesome. And you know what made it even better was that we went together, like a real family, which we practically are now. Do you think you’ll move in soon?

Heather: Oh, okay, all right, slow your roll, sweetie. This is, um, it’s new.

Lucy: Well, it’s old, really. Since I was born, basically, you guys just took a break, and then now the break’s over.

Heather: It’s a little more complicated than that, luce. Look, you heard your dad. He needs to find the right time to tell lily. So until then, this is under the radar.

Lucy: I know, it’s just really hard not to say anything.

Heather: Okay, well try to keep all your excitement under wraps for now.

Lucy: Right, but not around you guys. We have to be able to talk about it. I mean, this can’t be easy for you either. Acting like the most exciting thing in the world hasn’t happened.

Heather: It is the most exciting.

[ Lucy laughs ]

Heather: And I’m very, very happy.

Lucy: I just wish that we could skip to the good part already. You know, being together, being a family, for good.

Heather: It’ll happen.

Lucy: You’re positive? Because I don’t know, I’M… what if…

Heather: What if what?

Lucy: What if things change before dad gets to tell lily? Or what if when they see each other, dad decides that he wants to stay with her?

[ Diane sighs ]

Phyllis: Diane.

Diane: Phyllis.

Phyllis: You’re looking lovely. It’s a lovely necklace.

Diane: Well, thank you. You’re looking lovely as well.

Phyllis: Thank you.

Diane: Yeah.

Phyllis: Some people are saying that I have a special glow these days.

Diane: Oh, really? Well, I would love to hear all about that glow. But I’m so busy myself, I’m always almost late for a meeting. I’m sorry to be abrupt.

Phyllis: Oh, no. Nothing you do or say could change my mood right now.

Diane: Oh, well, then maybe this is a good time to tell you my good news.

Phyllis: Oh. Tell away.

Diane: I got a promotion.

Phyllis: Great.

Diane: Yeah.

Phyllis: Good. What are you, head of rubber band balls? Or you got my old position at marchetti home, following in my footsteps. I love that journey for you.

Diane: Well, actually, my new position isn’t nearly as small as your old division. I’m running jabot. All of it, side by side with my husband.

Victor: Oh, my god. Sweetheart. Sweetheart.

Nikki: Mhmm.

Victor: Come on, sweetheart, wake up. Baby.

Nikki: Oh, god, victor.

Victor: Yes. Yes, my sweet baby.

Nikki: Oh, no. No, no, no. What did you do?

[ Nikki sighs ] What did you do? (Vo) welcome to lobsterfest. Is your party ready?

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Nikki: What did you bring him here for? How could you do this to me?

Victor: Sweetheart, no one did anything to you. I’m the one who knew you were here. Come on now.

Nikki: Oh, oh, yeah. But I confided in you. This is your fault.

Victor: Sweetheart, it’s going to be all right. Let’s go.

Nikki: No, nothing is all right. Nothing is all right.

Victor: Sweetheart.

Nikki: Nothing.

Victor: Come here, my darling. Come here, my baby. Come here. Come here. I’ll hold you up. Come here. Step down there.

Nikki: I’m all right.

Victor: Okay, good.

Nikki: I’m all right.

Victor: There you go. Come on. I’ll take you home to the ranch.

Nikki: All right. Where’s my purse?

Jack: I got your purse. I got your purse.

Victor: Come on. Jack, please open the door.

Nikki: Whoops. I’m fine.

Victor: Here we go.

[ Indistinct ] Here we go.

Nikki: All right.

Victor: Okay, my baby. Come on.

Daniel: Just so you know, heather and I, we agreed to put everything on hold until I get the opportunity to speak with lily.

Devon: Oh, wow. That’s really nice. It’s the least you could do. But you’re still living a lie every time you talk to lily. You know that. And if I didn’t know any better, I’d say you’re just afraid to have the conversation with her. Because I’m sure life is super easy right now for you, getting to sneak around with her on the other side of the country.

Daniel: No one is sneaking around.

Devon: Yeah.

Daniel: Look, I’ll fly to california right now if you think lily’s ready. Yeah, exactly. Good. I’m glad at least we agree on that. Because believe me, I would tell her. I would tell her everything if I thought she was ready to hear the news.

Devon: I’m assuming you spoke to lily since you and heather started doing it.

[ Daniel sighs ] Yeah, I have.

Devon: Yeah? And how did those conversations go? You just pretend the whole time everything’s cool? It’s a lie.

Daniel: You know what, man? Right now what lily needs more than anything is our support. And if I can lend an ear, if I can keep reassuring her that she’s doing everything she can to support her girl, then that’s what I’m going to do. And that’s what I’m going to keep doing as long as she needs me to.

Devon: Okay. There it is. I’m sure you’re telling yourself that your supporting lily helps you sleep at night. But you need to understand that you’ve put me in a very difficult position. Because I’m also keeping your secret.

Heather: So I get why you may be worried. But I have seen the look in his eyes when we’re together. And I have felt the love in his voice. What it means for us to be together again as a couple and as a family. So we, we need to believe in that. Believe your dad. Okay? It’ll happen. We just need to be patient.

Lucy: Patience sucks.

Heather: I agree. I am just as excited as you are. But we need to let your dad handle things his way. Deal?

Lucy: The last thing I want is to mess this up. So, deal. But, you know, A… mochaccino might persuade me to be a little bit more chill about things.

Heather: Okay. You’re on. Crimson lights it is. Lots of whipped cream and extra syrup. Let’s go.

Heather: You are a sneaky one.

Lucy: Oh, it’s gonna be cold outside. Oh, hey. You’re just in time. Wanna grab a mochaccino with us?

Danny: Uh, yeah. Look, I’m gonna have to pass on that.

Lucy: Oh, but you love those.

Danny: Not today.

Heather: You okay?

Danny: Sure. You know, I just, my, uh, my head is in the new album and I’m– I’m struggling with some lyrics right now on it. I’m just, uh, yeah.

Lucy: Well, you’re a genius. So whatever you come up with is gonna be epic.

Danny: Well, that’s the plan.

Lucy: Bye, grandpa.

Danny: Bye.

Lucy: See you later.

Danny: Have fun.

Phyllis: You’re running jabot with jack.

Diane: Co-ceos. Does it get any better?

Phyllis: Unbelievable.

Diane: Yeah, I knew you’d be thrilled.

Phyllis: When does karma play a part?

Diane: Oh, I think I’m exactly where I should be.

Phyllis: Well, exactly where you schemed to be when you came back from the dead.

Diane: Oh, my god, we’re not going to revisit the whole back from the dead thing, are we? Talk about following in footsteps.

Phyllis: It’s really impressive, though, because you got exactly what you went for, didn’t you? Jack’s ring on your finger and his company under your thumb.

Diane: For your information, I didn’t scheme to get here. I begged jack to rehire kyle as co-ceo, but he just insisted that I was perfect for the job, and kyle agreed.

Phyllis: Through no manipulation of your own, I’m sure.

Diane: You know, your glow seems to have faded. Are you okay?

Phyllis: Oh, it’s definitely not faded, but thanks. There’s actually a special someone in my life who cares for me. It’s a great feeling. It’s so much better than being offered a pity position by my husband. I told myself I was ok

Jack: I know about all this time you have been spending with my wife. It has been going on for weeks now, and yet you’ve not mentioned so much as a word to me.

Victor: Well, jack, for that matter, someone else informed me that my former wife, the mother of my children, had become an incorrigible drunk. You certainly did not inform me about that problem, did you?

Jack: Because it is not your problem! In case you have forgotten, nikki is married to me now.

Victor: You bet I haven’t forgotten that. Because if she were married to me, I assure you, I would not have let this tragedy happen to her.

[ Doors open ]

[Door closes ]

Diane: Hey. I’m so glad I’m home.

Jack: Hi.

Diane: Hi. I just had the most ridiculous run-in with phyllis. What’s wrong?

Jack: Victor. Well, victor and nikki.

Diane: Well, what happened?

Jack: Victor knows that I am nikki’s sponsor. I couldn’t keep the secret any longer.

Diane: So you were the one to tell him, despite what nikki wanted.

Jack: I hated breaking her confidence. But the situation was impossible.

Diane: Well, as difficult as it was, I’m glad you did. You said yourself that secrets are an impediment to recovery.

Jack: Yes, so is lack of trust. And I think I just lost hers.

Diane: Jack, what happened? Oh, okay, I understand. Confidentiality.

Jack: Let me just say, victor and I just dragged her out of a dive bar.

Diane: What?

Jack: And she was mortified that he saw her there, and she blames me.

Diane: Well, I hope she knows that you were just trying to help her.

Jack: Not the way an addict’s mind works.

Diane: Are you worried that nikki’s going to push you away now?

Jack: Yeah, I am.

Diane: Well, don’t be. You did the right thing in telling victor what was going on. How did he react?

Jack: As you’d expect, the usual bluster. Then when he finally calmed down, I think he could see the sense in my being her sponsor, given our history, given our friendship, given my background in substance abuse.

Diane: Well, that’s actually more generous than I would have expected from victor. Do you think he’ll let it continue?

Jack: He doesn’t get to interfere. He doesn’t get to sweep me aside. This is bigger than victor. He doesn’t get to call the shots this time.

Daniel: Look, man, I am sorry that I put you in this position, but you have to know how deeply I care for your sister. And I intend to remain friends with her after all of this. And if right now being there for her, to support her, and doing whatever I can to help her get through this, that’s not a lie, man. That’s the truth.

Devon: Okay. Tell me where heather stands on all this. How does she feel about you guys having to put your affair on hold?

Daniel: She gets how difficult it is. And she likes lily, so she understands that I need to be up front with her.

[ Devon laughs ] I can tell how much she likes lily by how she acted when she left town.

Daniel: You know what, man? I get it. You want to blame me. That’s fine. I accept responsibility here. But just don’t drag heather into this.

Devon: No, why not? Does it make you feel like a hero to defend your ex while you’re cheating on lily? Because what kind of hero are you going to be to her when she finds out what you’re doing and how long you’ve been doing it for? And you know things are only that much more complicated because you work together, right?

Daniel: Well, I guess we’re all going to have to find a way to be professional about it.

Devon: That’s really easy for the person who’s doing the dumping.

Daniel: You know, I didn’t I didn’t plan on any of this, devon. Getting back together with heather was the furthest thing from my mind. I’m just trying to figure out how to go about it day by day, and I’m trying to figure out how to do right by everyone in this situation.

Devon: Right. And I understand what you’re trying to do, and I still think that lily deserves better than how you’re treating her.

Daniel: I agree.

Devon: Good.

Daniel: Look, I hate it too, but be honest with me. Are you really in any place where you can stand here and pass judgment right now?


Daniel: Look, man, I know from lily what went on between you and abby while you were with amanda. I get it. I do. You can’t always control what the heart dictates. Things can get messy, people can get hurt. Was it your intention to hurt amanda?

Devon: No, of course not.

Daniel: No. But now you feel like you’re where you belong, right? With abby and with dom.

Devon: I know what you’re getting at. I do. But it doesn’t change the fact that I don’t want to see my sister get hurt after everything she’s been through in her life. She’s battled cancer. She’s lost both of her parents. She’s been to jail. She just had a breakup with billy not too long ago. It feels like it’s just too much.

Daniel: I know. I agree. I agree. And that’s why I want to see her and do this face-to-face and have that conversation with her. Lily was my first love, man. I mean, she’s one of my oldest friends, and she’s definitely one of the most incredible people that I’ve ever known. Look, you have to believe me when I say that I want nothing but the best for her.

Devon: I hear you say all this stuff, and if it’s all true, then what happened?

Victor: And you make damn sure that no one in the bar says anything about my wife’s presence there. Do you got that?

Nikki: Mm.

Victor: And if they should dare serve her another drink, I will shut them joint down. Is that clear?

Nikki: Oh.

Victor: Come on, sweetheart. Have this water, okay?

Nikki: Oh, my god. I’m a mess.

Victor: My sweet baby. You’re beautiful to me, okay?

Nikki: I hate you seeing me like this because…

Victor: Don’t worry.

Nikki: It’s so humiliating.

Victor: Nonsense, okay? It’s all right.

Nikki: And why was jack with you?

Victor: Because he came to me to tell me that he is now your sponsor. And why in the world did you choose jack as your sponsor? He of all people. And then you’d keep it from me.

Nikki: Well, you hate him. I didn’t want to upset you. Oh. I’ve become such a burden to you.

[ Victor sighs ]

Nikki: You have other things to worry about. And I need to do this myself with the help of a sponsor. Somebody who understands the struggle because they have been through it. And, darling, I’m sorry, but that’s not you.

Victor: But, sweetheart, why jack abbott of all people? He’ll be an intimate part of our lives now.

Nikki: It’s not like I’m choosing him over you. I will still lean on you. I always will. But… when it comes to matters of aa, he… he is more knowledgeable, that’s all.

Victor: You mean even after he broke your word with you?

Nikki: No, he did the right thing. Darling, please don’t try to take this from me.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

[Stomach growling]

Nikki: I’m not ready to go home yet. I need to eat something. Then we should go see jack.

Victor: Why see jack abbott, for heaven’s sake? He practically gave you permission to drink.

Nikki: No, he did nothing of the kind. That’s why we need to… go see him so that you can hear both of us say why he is the best sponsor for me.

Victor: Sweetheart, there must be other options.

Nikki: Victor.

Victor: What?

Nikki: If you want to help me fight this disease, you need to understand how I need to fight it.

Victor: Of course I want to help you fight the disease. What do you think I’ve been doing?

Nikki: All right.

Victor: But jack abbott, for heaven’s sake? All right, we’ll go see jack abbott. But don’t you think for one moment I will not give him a piece of my mind.

Daniel: Nothing was wrong. You know, we were happy. We were trying to figure out if we still had a future together. It was very much an in-the-moment kind of relationship, and we hadn’t really looked past that.

Devon: And you do see a future with you and heather?

Daniel: Yeah, there’s no question. It’s just right, you know? Everything’s right for both of us, for all three of us. And I know how lucky I am, and I’m never gonna take that for granted again.

[ Devon sighs ]

Devon: Well, then, I mean, I guess you gotta do what you gotta do. All right? Just know if lily asks me, straight out, I’m not gonna lie to her.

Daniel: Understood.

Devon: Good. Hello.

Lucy: Hi.

Heather: Hello.

Devon: You guys have a good night.

Lucy: You too.

Heather: You too. Is everything all right?

Daniel: Yeah, I think so.

Lucy: We’re, uh, getting mochaccinos.

Heather: You want one?

Daniel: Um… aren’t you supposed to be doing your homework?

Lucy: It’s easy, and I have plenty of time. Plus, uh, grandpa was… said he wanted to work on music, and he kind of seemed a little upset.

Daniel: Really? I should probably check on him.

Lucy: Well, you’re missing out.

Daniel: Well, I didn’t say that you couldn’t pick up a couple for me and your grandpa when you’re done.

Lucy: As long as mom’s paying, I’m good.

Heather: Why don’t you go order for us, honey?

Lucy: Okay, yeah, sure.

Heather: Okay. So you and devon, that looked serious.

Daniel: Yeah. You know, he’s worried about lily, what this is gonna do to her, but he knows where things stand. And that’ll tell her when the time’s right.

Heather: Is it wrong that I really hope it’s sooner rather than later?

Daniel: I’ll see you back at the apartment.

Heather: Okay.

Lucy: Hey, mom.

Heather: Oh, wow. Thank you.

Lucy: Looks good, right?

Heather: Very good.

Lucy: To being a family again.

[ Heather sighs ]

Heather: Cheers.

Lucy: Cheers.

Phyllis: Hey, what are you two toasting?

Lucy: Just, um… just having a really great day.

Phyllis: Really?

Lucy: Mm-hmm.

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness, with smiles like those, I would think it would be something a little more important. Where’s your dad? He’s missing it.

Heather: He went back home, um, to check on his dad. Something was bothering danny.

Lucy: Yeah.

Diane: So what are you gonna do?

Jack: I guess when nikki’s sober, I’m gonna talk to her, tell her why I revealed a secret I promised her I would keep, and then listen to victor blame me for her latest slip.

Diane: Uh, jack, this is not your fault. You can only help nikki not drink as much as she’ll let you.

Jack: I know that, but… as strong as she is, as hard as she fights, this disease has broken the toughest. I’m not gonna let that happen to my friend. She needs all the help she can get. She’s gonna get everything I can give her.

[ Knocks ]

Diane: Uh, I’ll get it.

Jack: Thanks. This new charmin ultra soft smooth tear

Jack: Uh… I thought you were taking nikki to the ranch.

Nikki: It was my decision to come here.

Victor: Things are not finished between the two of us.

Jack: Okay.

Victor: She knows, doesn’t she?

Diane: I do.

Victor: Well, so much for discretion. I beg of you not to tell anyone about this. Is that clear?

Diane: I have already told nikki that I don’t intend to say a word. Whatever our history is, this struggle is private, and I… I respect that. And I respect you, and I hope you get through this. You know, I, um… I left a folder at the office, so I will be back as soon as I can.

Jack: Yeah.

Diane: Bye.

Jack: Please. So, how are you feeling?

Nikki: Uh, better. Steadier.

Jack: I know you’re here because you’re angry at me for telling victor that I’m your sponsor.

Nikki: Well, yes, I was. But… now I understand why you told victor the truth. You’re a man of integrity. It’s the right thing to do, though, and I just couldn’t see that until now. Even though you told me from the very beginning that we shouldn’t keep it from him.

Jack: I hope victor will hear those words out of your mouth. He certainly wouldn’t listen when they came out of mine.

Nikki: It’s true. It was my idea to keep it from you. I– I just knew that you would be upset, and I have already been such a burden to you. I– I just wanted to get better without putting you through more hell.

Victor: Sweetheart, you know damn well I will go through hell for you.

Danny: Hey, son, hi.

Daniel: Hey, hi yourself. How you doing? I heard you were, uh, in a bit of a funk.

Danny: No, I’m just preoccupied with the, uh, you know, the album. That’s it.

Daniel: Well, now I know something’s wrong.

[ Danny sighs ] What are you talking about?

Daniel: Come on, dad, I know you. When you’re recording, even if you hit a roadblock, you’re– you’re excited, you know? You’re all music all the time, and you’re happy, and you’re definitely not happy right now. And you passed up a caffeine hit with two of your favorite people, so what’s up?

Danny: Romance is a pain in the neck. That’s what’s up.

Daniel: I thought things were moving along with christine.

Danny: Yeah, well… it’s not just christine, it’s also phyllis, too.

Daniel: Oh, great, what’d she do now?

Danny: I was really happy with, you know, how things were progressing with christine, and then… and then phyllis told me how she felt, and…

Daniel: And you said no thank you.

Danny: Yes, uh, more than once. Uh… she kissed me, christine saw it, and they both think it’s much more than it really is, okay?

Daniel: Oh, my god, dad. How could you let that happen? How can you not know mom better than that by now?

Danny: Is this your idea of helping me? Because you’re really not helping me.

Daniel: Okay, yeah, you’re right. I’m– I’m sorry. What are you… what are you gonna do?

Danny: What do you mean? I’m gonna do what I have to.

Daniel: Which is?

Danny: Back away from both of them.

Daniel: Christine, too?

Danny: If I don’t back off, they’re not gonna back away from each other.

Daniel: So the old triangle’s back in play.

Danny: It’s not really a triangle, okay? I mean, my love for christine is completely different than my duty was to phyllis, and, you know, whatever it is, it’S… it seems messier than it’s ever been.

Daniel: You don’t owe mom anything. There is no duty there.

Danny: We know she’s made a lot of mistakes, but she’s trying to make amends for them. And I can’t just cut her off because she and christine can’t stand each other. She deserves more, and I deserve a little bit of trust in the matter here.

Daniel: Wow. That was a very passionate defense of mom. I’m just saying I could see how maybe christine would be uncomfortable here.

Danny: I told her that we all need to take a breath and a step back for a bit. And I’ve been throwing myself into my music and just trying not to think about it.

Daniel: No, no, no, no, no. That’s a distraction. It’s not a solution.

Danny: That’s really all I can do right now, daniel.

Daniel: Yeah, tell me about it. I know how that feels. You think you’re on the right path, and the next thing you know, right turn out of nowhere. Everything’s derailed. Your whole world’s upside down.

Danny: Somehow I don’t think we’re talking about me anymore.

Daniel: Heather and I are back together.

Danny: What? When? I mean, does lily know about this?

Daniel: No, it’s new, and I need to tell her face to face.

Danny: Yes, that would be wise.

Daniel: Yeah, it’s just not a good time right now, so we’re waiting until a better time. And in the meantime, heather and I agreed just to keep everything quiet.

Danny: Of course. Wow. This is big.

Daniel: This is big. Yeah.

Danny: Does lucy know about this?

Daniel: Yes, lucy knows, and I’m really hoping she can keep it to herself.

[ Sighs ]

Danny: Yeah. Well, you know, maybe it’s not so out of the blue when you think about it. Heather was the love of your life, and the two of you and lucy, you were wildly happy, until…

Daniel: Yeah, until I ruined everything. You know, I’m well aware, and that’s why this is all that much more important to me. The fact that heather’s willing to give me a second chance. You know, the fact that she has continued to love me this whole time. I don’t know, everything just kind of fell into place.

Danny: Well, I am really happy for you. I am. I’m happy for all of you.

Daniel: I just, I have to tell lily. You know, I’ve known her as long as I can remember, and the thought of lying to her or hurting her, it kills me.

Danny: Yeah. Lily is so dear, and there can’t be an easy way to do it, but you know what? You are a good person, and you are gonna find the words.

Daniel: Well, thank you for believing that.

Danny: It’s true. So, um, any advice for– for dad here?

Daniel: Buckle up, buttercup. No, seriously, buckle up. Are you silently suffering This i to dinner since

Phyllis: I just saw your girls at crimson lights, and I thought we would go to dinner since they’re out and about.

Daniel: Dinner?

Phyllis: Yeah.

Daniel: Um, hold that thought. This is lily. I gotta take this. Hey. Yeah, I miss you too. Hey, how’s maddie doing?

Phyllis: So…

[ Tinkling keys ]

[ Discordant notes ] How’s the writing coming along?

Danny: What are you doing here?

Phyllis: Well, I came here to ask our son out to dinner. That’s why I’m here. But this is a pleasant surprise.

Danny: Didn’t we agree on taking a little break, a step back?

Phyllis: Well, I heard a lot of other interesting things. Like you had feelings for me.

Danny: As a friend.

Phyllis: Oh, oh, oh. As a friend.

Daniel: Phyllis.

Phyllis: Listen. Danny. Hey. Okay. I know I’m a wild card. I know I say what’s in my head, what’s in my heart. I know that about myself. But honestly, it’s meant so much to me. That we’ve just… been able to talk. And laugh. We could talk about anything. That makes me feel good. It means a lot to me. And I know I get carried away. I’m sorry, I’m sorry. But… I just feel really good around you.

Danny: And this is what you do? You’re so sincere, so…

Phyllis: I am sincere.

Danny: And then you go and pull a stunt posting that on social media, trying to pick a fight with christine.

Phyllis: We talked about this. This is not about that. It’s about you and me.

Danny: There is no you and me.

Phyllis: Okay, okay, okay, listen, listen, listen. I know I’ve done a lot of horrible things in my past. I know that. I feel like I’ve taken responsibility for them. I mean, I’ve done things that I regret. And I’m sure that’s why you’re backing off. But if you gave me a chance, just one chance, maybe you could see that I give you something that you didn’t even know you needed.

Danny: This is not going to happen.

Phyllis: No? Wouldn’t mind if you tried.

[ Phyllis chuckles ]

Daniel: Um…

Danny: Hey. Um, how’s lily doing? Is everything all right?

Daniel: Yeah, yeah, no, she’s– she’s good.

Daniel: Oh. Yeah, um… I gotta get to the studio. And, uh, okay.

Phyllis: Danny?

Danny: I gotta go.

Daniel: You happy?

Phyllis: What? I was just talking to your father.

Daniel: Just– just putting him in an impossible position. Well, maybe danny and I are meant to be together. Have you thought of that? And it’s not happening because christine keeps on insinuating herself in between us and pitching a fit every time she sees us together. Maybe that’s why it’s not happening. Maybe we’re kismet. Just like you and heather. Huh? And if you’d wake up, maybe you could see that. And maybe danny will see it. I know he will.

Jack: So, nikki, what are your plans now moving forward?

Nikki: I don’t want to change anything.

Victor: Wait a minute. Aren’t there others who can, in your aa group, that could function as your sponsor?

Nikki: You mean like seth? I can’t take a chance like that again. I need somebody that I can count on, and I know that jack won’t let me down.

Victor: As far as I’m concerned, jack has made it worse. You damn well knew she was in a binge, and you lured me away from that dive bar where I could have helped her.

Nikki: Victor, please. What happened was in no way jack’s fault. It was mine.

Victor: His interference made it worse.

Nikki: My sobriety was violently taken from me by a woman who could still be a threat. And I am trying so hard to get it back. But some days, I– I am just so overwhelmed. I– I can’t fight. And I– I need to have a sponsor that– that I can have faith in, and it can’t be anybody from my meetings. I have years of trust with jack, and– and we understand each other, and he knows from his own experience what I need. Victor, please. I know this is upsetting to you, but you can’t help me inside the program, and I won’t accept anyone other than jack. So you are just going to have to let it be my call. And I need you to respect it.

Victor: Well, I disagree with it, however, since this is your wish, I’ll abide by it, okay? But, jack, one thing I can tell you. If anything happens to nikki, you will have hell to pay.
