Chance: Something’s happened.

[ Summer laughs ] That’s good.

Summer: Yeah.

Chance: That’s you, huh?

[ Summer laughs ]

Summer: Between the clubs there and the yoga retreats and the beaches, I was honestly addicted to that place for a while.

Chance: It’s gorgeous.

Summer: Yeah, it really is.

Chance: I wasn’t talking about the beach.

[ Summer giggles ]

Summer: Okay, what about you? What about you? Is traveling your thing?

Chance: Uh, yeah, yeah, I guess you could say that. Let’s see. I did iraq in the middle east when I was in the army. Spent some time in vegas doing undercover work. Tripped in mallorca. That’s not up for discussion. Sorry.

Summer: Okay.

Chance: Australia when I found out my father wasn’t actually dead after all. Guess you know how that feels, don’t you?

Summer: I do. [ Chuckles ]

Chance: Are you sorry you asked?

Summer: No. I’m fascinated. I mean, I knew that you’d had some wild times, but I didn’t realize they were that wild. Do you ever miss those days?

Chance: You know what? I am happy right where I am.

Phyllis: What do you know? Look at them over there. Together, just as I predicted.

[ Nick sighs ]

[ Audra sighing, moaning ]

Audra: Still glad you chose me?

Tucker: [ Panting ]

Tucker: Well, you’re making a pretty good case for yourself so far.

[ Incoming message sound ] I can’t believe one bottle of tide

[ Incoming message sound ]

[ Sighs ]

Tucker: Are you awake? I love you.

Nick” thanks. What do you mean you predicted that? Together now? I mean, didn’t sharon and chance just end things like five minutes ago?

Phyllis: Um, yeah, but, I mean, look at them. Yeah, they are together now. It was obviously going that way. I mean, did you not notice that?

Nick: I mean, yeah, of course I suspected that summer had, you know, a crush on chance, but I knew she had too much integrity to make a move on him while he was with sharon, which I really respected about our daughter.

Phyllis: I did too. I mean, to a point. Sharon and chance, that wasn’t gonna last. It wasn’t gonna go anywhere.

Nick: Because you know them both so well.

Phyllis: Well, they’re not together now, are they? And look at them. They’re having so much fun together. I mean, who can’t notice that? I’m really happy. I’m happy for them.

[ Summer laughing ]

Summer: No, I can’T.

Nick: Summer really does seem happy. I haven’t heard her laugh like that in a long time.

Phyllis: Yeah. She deserves to be happy after everything she’s been through. After everything I’ve put her through, I’ll say it first. Okay. She deserves long-lasting happiness.

Nick: There’s no doubt about that.

Phyllis: I deserve to be happy too. I do. Even though people in this town don’t think so. Whatever. I do deserve to be happy. What about you, nick? Golden boy. The happiness gods have always been smiling upon you. Your life is a constant state of bliss.

[ Nick sighs ] What’s going on with you? Are you happy?

[ Glass shattering ]

Tucker: Goodbye, ashley.

You go to hell! What do you want?

Ashley: I want to talk to you, but not here.

Tucker: What do you want?

Ashley: Listen, it needs to be in private. Let’s go upstairs to your room.

Tucker: No. It’s right here, right now or forget it. ()

Phyllis: It’s been a while since we really touched base, and I want to know if you’re happy. Does that surprise you?

[ Nick sighs ]

Nick: I mean, you get in grooves, phyllis. You know, things that you put all your focus on. Like our daughter’s love life. Uh, diane jenkins, that one’s a real crowd pleaser. Uh, dodging the law.

[ Laughs ] My happiness is not currently on that list. It’s not a complaint. It’s just an observation. Like you said, it’s been a long time.

Phyllis: Do you want to know why?

Nick: Sure.

Phyllis: Because I know that you were very mad at me after I died. And, um… I was nervous to talk to you because your opinion matters to me. Listen, you weren’t blowing up my phone trying to get in touch with me, either, so…

Nick: Yes, there’s kind of been a lot going on.

Phyllis: Like what?

Nick: Nothing I can get into, but trust me, I’ve been busy.

Phyllis: All right. Well, do you want to know what I’ve been wanting to say to you during our last months of silence?

Nick: Yeah, let’s hear it.

Phyllis: That I care about you. And I’ll always care about you. Always. We’ve been in and out of love so many times. For what? The amazing thing we did, so amazing, is create that gorgeous, incredible girl over there.

Nick: Hell yeah, we did.

Phyllis: Yeah. No matter what happens with us, we will always share that bond. Being summer’s parents.

Nick: We will. Whether we like it or not.

[ Both chuckling ]

> Phyllis: So you stopped stalling?

Nick: Um, good. Seriously, I’m in a good place. I can’t help but worry about you, though.

Phyllis: Me? Why?

Nick: I mean, come on, you’re phyllis. When can I not worry about you?

Phyllis: Oh, well, that just goes to show how well you know me, nick.

Nick: Oh, okay. What does that mean?

Phyllis: That means maybe you want to buy me a drink. And I’ll let you know why I’m so deliriously happy.

Nick: Okay. Well, listen, I gotta hear.

Summer: Oh, my god.

Chance: What? What’s wrong?

Summer: Um, don’t look now, but my parents are here.

Chance: Oh, is that– is that a problem?

Summer: Oh, my gosh.

Chance: I mean, from what you said, you and your dad are tight, right? And you managed to make peace with your mom?

Summer: Yeah, that’s true. But they also seem to take some sort of perverse pleasure in knowing all of my business.

Chance: Oh.

Summer: It’s just a little bit much.

Chance: Yeah, I get that. My mom’s not always in town, but near or far, that woman knows all. Hey, at least we got parents that care, right? Not everybody can say that. And I’m not at my debate fault with your parents, because look at the incredible woman

[ Summer laughs ]

Summer: Okay, that’s a very healthy perspective on embarrassing parents. You know what, I’m going to have to start practicing this silver lining mentality of yours.

Chance: Oh, well, you’re in luck, you can start practicing right now, because here they come.

Audra: Tucker? Tucker?

Ashley: It’s irrelevant what happened on my trip to paris.

Tucker: Then why did you need to see me immediately?

Ashley: I wanted to see you face to face and tell you that I have never been more disgusted by anyone’s actions than I am by yours.

[ Tucker laughs ]

Tucker: You woke me up to tell me this?

Ashley: You know, I have accepted the sad fact that I married you, but I will be eternally embarrassed and ashamed that I ever loved you.


the things you loved…

Ashley: I gotta say, you’ve really outdone yourself this time, tucker.

Tucker: How did I accomplish that?

Ashley: Well, bribing an entire restaurant staff on a completely different continent just to make me think that I’m cuckoo.

Tucker: They all backed up my version of what happened, didn’t they?

Ashley: I know the truth. And I know what I have to do now.

Tucker: Which is?

Ashley: To pr everybody I love, I gotta protect them from you and your poison. But congratulations, because your gaslighting was, you know, somewhat effective. Because my own family is now doubting me. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. You got a lot of pain coming your way, buddy. You got so much pain coming at you. But don’t blame me. You look in the mirror.

Tucker: Gosh, that sounds like a threat, ashley.

Ashley: Oh, it’s definitely a threat. Remember that campaign that I’ve been on to get you and devon to reconcile? Well, that’s off the table. It’s done. It’s gone. I’m gonna do everything in my power to make sure that he cuts you out of his life forever. And dominic’S.

Tucker: I would think twice about that if I were you.

Ashley: Everybody I can get to listen to me, including your bought and paid for loyalist board of directors at glissade. They’re gonna know how vicious you are, how malicious you are. They’re gonna know that. I can’t believe it. Honestly, I– I can’t believe that I ever let myself feel any kind of guilt about you. I thought it was my fault. My fault, that somehow my actions created the rage that you had because of your intense heartbreak.

[ Laughing ]

Tucker: You’re doubting the heartbreak that you caused me?

Ashley: Well–

Tucker: In that case, you really are delusional.

Ashley: Well, well. You can’t break what you don’t have. You don’t have a heart. You are all ego. And that rage in paris was simply your inability to control me and monopolize me.

[ Tucker laughs ] Ye it’s funny, isn’t it? It is. You’re right. Because, um, something happened when i realized that you were actually to blame. Mm-hmm. That guilt I had? Gone. Just like that. Just like that. And you know what was replacing it? Sheer and utter contempt for you.

Tucker: Are you finished?

Ashley: Mm-hmm.

Tucker: Good, because now it’s my turn.

Phyllis: Hey.

Chance: Hi.

Nick: Hi. How’s it going?

Summer: Good.

Chance: Yeah.

Phyllis and nick: Yep.

Phyllis: Saw you two over here and I thought, “oh my gosh, am I dreaming?”

[ Chance laughing ]

Chance: Would you two care to join us?

Phyllis: Sure.

Nick: No, we’re not going to do that, no. No. You guys seem to be having a good time on your, uh… is it a date?

Summer: Thanks, dad. Thank you.

Nick: Okay, uh, goodnight.

Summer: Bye. See you

Chance: See you guys. See? That wasn’t so bad, was it? I mean, from what you said, I was half expecting your dad to pull out the old class photos of you with the nerdy hair and the braces. Well, not that I believe you’ve ever taken a bad photo. I still don’t buy that.

Summer: Nice save. No, we’re just lucky that my dad can actually take a hint. I mean, if we had to sit here, the four of us, while my mom makes all of her subtle comments.

Chance: Why, I’m sorry, I had to make the offer. Very happy with the outcome. It’s just strange seeing them have a peaceful, drama-free drink together.

Chance: You think, uh, maybe they’re on a date?

Summer: No.

Chance: No.

Summer: No, no. I’m sure that they just ran into each other here and my dad couldn’t bring himself to be rude to her.

Summer: Yeah.

Chance: Yeah, he was pretty angry after, uh, you know…

Summer: My mom’s untimely death? Yes. They kept their distance for a while, but I guess this was bound to happen sooner or later. I mean, and it’s– it’s fine. It’s fine. It’s just, um… a little weird.

Phyllis: Here’s a toast to us. Thank you for finding it in your heart to forgive me. You know, for the whole diane jenkins-jeremy stark debacle. I don’t know if I would be able to do the same for you, so…

Nick: What summer went through, it changed her forever, phyllis, and she never should have gone through that, but she did. And honestly, it’s been very hard for me to let all that go. But I would like to, for all our sakes. I won’t let me moderate to severe plaque psoriasis

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Summer: And so I told harrison that he had had enough cookies before bedtime, right? And I took them away from him, and he got so mad at me. He just– he put his hands on his hips and he said, “fine. “Then I’m gonna go “waste toothpaste.” And he just stormed out of the room, went upstairs, and I was just like… I went and I checked on him after a while, and… the little guy had just gone straight to bed. He looked so sweet, and I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know if I should scold him for talking back to me, or if I should thank him for not wasting toothpaste. I was stumped.

Chance: Yeah, I love it. I love it. They always know how to get to you, don’t they?

Summer: Right?

Chance: I just took dominic shopping the other day, and we go by this store, and there was this insane drum set in the window, right? I’m talking recording studio quality, thousands of dollars, the real deal. Kid takes one look at it, and of course he has to have it. And of course,hell.

Summer: When they throw a fit in public, it’s always a fun one.

Chance: Oh, my gosh, and this wasn’t even a fit. It was like a world-class tantrum. Right? He lost it. And I look at him, and I’m like, buddy, you’re not gonna get what you want acting like that. And it was like a light switch. Kid turned into the most loving, carefree, sweetest kid on the face of the earth.

Summer: Did you get him the drum set?

Chance: In his dreams, no. Are you kidding me? Abby would kill me, first of all. And I’m not about to spend ten or 12 car payments on something he’s gonna lose interest in in like a week. But I mean, talk about not knowing what to do. I was stumped, and it was my own fault. I set myself up for that.

Summer: No, I always feel like an idiot when stuff like that happens.

Chance: There’s nothing like getting outsmarted by a kid who doesn’t even come up to your knees, right? You know what we have to look forward to, though?

Summer: No, what?

Chance: We can use all this as fodder to embarrass them when they have kids of their own.

Summer: I’ve thought of that. That and karma.

Chance: Oh.

Summer: Wait a second. Is this our payback for what we put our parents through when we were growing up?

[ Chance chuckles ]

Nick: You know, I’m not gonna minimize it. It took a lot of hard work to get over what you did to your family. I mean, collapsing at the gala. Setting up the fake ambulance crash was really something. And then just getting over the idea of never being able to see you again. Then, of course, uh, framing diane for supposedly poisoning you.

Phyllis: We don’t have to relive this, right? And listen, I’ll regret what I did every single minute of my life. And I’ll also be grateful to you every single minute of my life for getting our daughter through that.

Nick: Well, you should save that gratitude for summer. I followed her cues. I mean, I figured if summer and daniel could get over what you did to your family– they were the two that were hurt by far the most– then why should I not be able to follow their lead?

Phyllis: You give me more credit than I deserve.

Nick: Your kids are amazing people. But you need to give yourself some credit too, phyllis. I can see you making some changes to try to become a better person.

Phyllis: You do? Really?

Nick: I do. It’s sort of interesting timing because I’M… choosing to believe the same thing about my brother right now. That he’s also making some changes and decisions to try and better himself.

Phyllis: Okay. Hey, while, I really appreciate that you don’t think I’m a lost cause, you’re comparing me to adam.

[ Both laugh ] I don’t know. I want to ask you, do you ever wish that maybe you were a little more like adam?

[ Nick scoffs ]

Nick: Oh, come on. So you were offended that I ever compared you to adam, but I’m just supposed to be okay with you comparing me to him? Well, it must be difficult for you… being looked at by your friends and family as… the righteous newman. You know, the good one, the solid one. It doesn’t leave a lot of room for mistakes.

Nick: I thought that I bought you a drink so we could talk about you, not so that you could analyze me and try to convince me I’m some sort of wannabe bad boy.

Phyllis: I’m not analyzing you. They’re just questions I wanted to ask. It’s been a long time.

Nick: Well, I’m done with the questions. I have one more question.

[ Nick sighs ]

Nick: Okay. One more. One more and that’s it. Sally spectra.

Nick: It’s not a question.

Phyllis: What happened? What is that? Was that really a thing?

Nick: She’s smart. She’s beautiful. She’s unpredictable. You really find it hard to believe that I would go for that type? Look, I think you’re deflecting. Let’s just stop dancing around and be straight with each other.

Chance: How are you and kyle doing with the whole co-parenting situation? I know that’s tough.

Summer: We’re doing okay. At it. We’re civil. We don’t speak badly of each other in front of harrison. I worry about kyle though.

Chance: Yeah? What’s going on with him?

Summer: I mean, he doesn’t confide in me at all, but I just get a sense that he’S… disillusioned or something. I mean, I let him down, and jack kept me on at marchetti and let him go, and now he’s been passed up for the co-ceo spot at his own family’s company twice. He just keeps on making all these dumb moves, like getting involved with audra charles. And I just, I hate to see what’s happening to him. And there’s nothing that I can do. All I can do is just watch from a distance and… hope for the best.

Chance: Yeah, that’s hard. I know. I know you obviously still care about him, too. Um… tell me if I’m crossing a line here by asking this, but… do you ever regret that your marriage didn’t work out?

Summer: I will always care about kyle. But… regret? I think I’ve come to realize that regret is just… wasted energy. Life’s hard. People disappoint each other. And I don’t know, I think the best you can do is recognize your mistakes and own up to it and… try not to make the same ones again.

Chance: I like the way you think.

Tucker: I swear on the soul of my grandchild that I did not bribe, uh, threaten, or–

[ Ashley sighs heavily ] Or do anything to coerce that waitstaff to get them to say what I wanted them to say. If they backed up my version of what happened, it’s because it’s the truth. It is what happened. And, frankly, I’m saddened by the fact that this is how you decided to play this. That you couldn’t just… be satisfied walking away in any things with me. You had to have scorched earth. You had to come up with this ugly fiction about me. And then convince yourself that it was the, uh, the noble, righteous, abbott thing to do.

Ashley: There it is. I knew you wouldn’t be able to help yourself. You can’t attack me, can you, without going after my family.

Tucker: I don’t know what’s going on with you, ashley. I don’T. But it’s something, and I think maybe you need to seek professional help to figure out what it is.

Ashley: Oh, really?

Audra: There you are. I woke up and you weren’t there. Last thing I expected was to find you with the woman who put you through such hell. Alice loves the scent of gain so much,

she wished there was a way to

make it last longer.

Ashley: Oh, so this is why we couldn’t have our conversation up in your room– ’cause it would have been very private.

Tucker: And?

Audra: Is there a problem, ashley?

[ Laughs]

Ashley: Am I supposed to be shocked that the two of you are sleeping together? I an, really? But you do know, audra, that you are just one on a very, very long list of tucker’s hookups, right? But isn’t it a little soon? I mean, are the papers even drawn up yet for our–

Tucker: Need I remind you that you’re the one who dumped me?

Ashley: Oh, yeah.

Tucker: And you didn’t exactly put up a fight when I started those annulment proceedings, did you? Did you expect me to just sit alone in my room for the rest of my life, pining over you?

Ashley: God, no. I don’t even know why I bother to have this conversation. Here’s your problem now. Good luck with that. But, audra, quick question. Were you sleeping with tucker the same time you were sleeping with kyle? Classy. You two deserve each other.

Audra: Wow.

Chance: Thank you. So what about you and abby? Have you guys found a comfortable balance with dom and that whole ugly breakup?

Chance: I think so. You know, I won’t lie to you. It hurt being betrayed like that. Took me some time to get past, but I think in the end, I did learn from it too.

Summer: Tell me.

Chance: Um… well, I learned that you can’t force love. You know, hearts are unpredictable. And they’re uncontrollable. They want what they want when they want it. Logic plays no part. And you know what? I think you’re right. What’s the point of regret? I mean, what does that get you other than nowhere?

Summer: You know what? I like the way you think too.

Nick: I really cared about sally. Still care about her. She, uh… it killed me when that relationship ended.

Phyllis: What ended it?

Nick: I mean, what else? Adam. Her feelings for him that she couldn’t let go of.

Phyllis: She chose adam over you? Really? Oh, wow. Well, they deserve each other. They’re actually perfect for each other. How you doing now? Post-breakup.

Nick: Fine, fine. I’m back on track, you know, focusing on family and work.

Phyllis: That’s nice. That’s nice to hear.

Nick: Yeah, how about you? How are these, uh, life changes going, and are you sticking to them?

Phyllis: Yeah. Yeah, I am. Um, it’s going well. I also think… I found peace with a certain someone.

Nick: Are we talking about… danny romilotti?

Phyllis: Yes.

Nick: Okay.

Phyllis: Why? Do you have a problem with that?

Nick: I’m surprised, you know, that danny would feel comfortable with you, considering, you know, your history.

Phyllis: Well, he doesn’t feel uncomfortable with me. He sees that I’ve changed. He sees how hard I’m trying, and he validates that. I’ve changed a lot because of him actually.

Phyllis: Okay. Well, then I really hope it works out for you. I mean that. Type 2 diabetes?

Summer: Well, good night.

Chance: Yeah, it’s good seeing you two.

Nick: Same to you. I love you, super girl.

Summer: Love you. Love you, mom.

Phyllis: Love you. You two are adorable, by the way. Just saying. So cute. Yeah.

Nick: Very subtle.

Phyllis: I– oh, I don’t– I can’t help it. It’s just how I feel it came out.

Summer: Thank you. And thank you for dinner.

Chance: Well, thank you for a terrific and interesting evening. I like learning more about you. You know, how you think, the way you feel.

Summer: Right back at you.

[ Summer giggles ]

Phyllis: Are you as happy for them as I am?

Nick: Yes, I am. It’s just hard for me to see her start a new relationship so soon. Look, she’s a grown woman. She’s a mother. She has an amazing career. But I’m never not gonna look at her like she’s not our little girl who needs me to protect her.

Phyllis: So sweet. I get that. I feel the same way. But, you know, I can see in your eyes how proud you are of her.

Nick: Unbelievably proud of her– you’re right. But just so you know, I’m never gonna be okay with seeing her kiss a man.

Phyllis: Okay. So, here’s to us. And finally finding our happy places.

Nick: All right.

Audra: What the hell just happened down there?

Tucker: Yeah. I’m sorry you had to witness any of it. Ashley’s obviously further gone than even I realized.

Audra: What does that mean?

Tucker: Well, she has heard the truth from several witnesses about what happened between us in paris. And yet she refuses to believe it, and… not only that, she seems hell-bent on coming up with whatever conspiracy theory it takes to paint me as the villain. I think something’s really wrong with her.

Audra: Well, to be honest, I don’t care. I couldn’t be less interested in what ashley thinks about anything. No, I’d much rather hear how you managed to get out of this bed to the bar with your ex-wife. Yeah, I’m hoping you’ll say that you just went down there for a drink and had no idea you’d run into her.

Tucker: She texted me. And she said she needed to see me immediately.

Audra: And you couldn’t resist?

Tucker: No. I couldn’T. But it’s not because I wanted to hear what she had to say. It’s because I thought it was high time she heard from me that I’m officially moving on for good.

Audra: And how did she react?

[ Tucker sighs heavily ]

Tucker: Not well. She, uh… she was fine with ending things with me, but she went a step further. And she’s now threatened to keep devon out of my life forever. And dominic.

Audra: Well, that’s pretty petty and vindictive for an ice queen like her. But she’s not the type for idle threats. You know, maybe she’ll want to recruit abby to help her go through with this.

Tucker: She can recruit whoever the hell she wants. It’s not gonna work. I’ll be damned if I let her keep my son out of my life and my grandson. You can believe that.

Audra: Hey, just out of curiosity, uh, did you tell her about us?

Tucker: I didn’t have to. You took care of that. Rather effectively, I might add.

Audra: Would you have told her if I hadn’t shown up?

Tucker: Absolutely. Ashley is old news, honey. You’re my future now.

[ Glasses clink ]

Tucker: I’m done.

[ Glass clatters ]

Goodbye, ashley.

Go to hell.

Traci: Ashley? Oh, I’m so glad you’re home. Are you okay?

Ashley: I don’t know what’s happening to me, traci.
