Danny: No.

Phyllis: Danny. Danny. Danny.

Danny: Look, daniel’s not here. I have nothing more to say to you.

Phyllis: This is a peace offering.

Danny: Not necessary.

Phyllis: Well, it’s your favorite, brunello. I know you want it, even if you’re still angry at me.

Danny: Peace offering accepted. Now, would you please leave me alone?

Phyllis: Is that so hard? I just wanna have a little chat with you first.

Danny: Phyllis, I ca–

Phyllis: Just a little chat, please. Danny, I need to say this. I’m not the one doing the competing here.

Danny: You gotta be kidding me.

Phyllis: I’m not. I mean the old me, yeah, for sure. The old me would’ve loved this. Ticking off the sa– the most sanctimonious person on the planet. Yeah, but not me now. Okay, listen, I’ve had a brutal year. Oh, massively painful. You know that. And you have helped me so much. I feel like I really am changing. I’ve really worked hard to change and you’ve been there with me every step of the way, encouraging me when nobody else in this town would do that. And– and I realized that since the moment I met you, I made your life turmoil. I realized that. I’m not proud of the things I’ve done. I’m not proud of them at all. I’m ashamed. But I feel like I took responsibility for them and just every day, I’m changing and changing. I just kind of wanted to do that with you. Do you know what I mean? So, I kind of think that beneath all your caution and coloring within the lines, I kinda think you feel the same way.

Chance: Morning, nate.

Nate: Chance. Man, we’ve all been so busy seems like I only see you passing in the hall.

Chance: Yeah. Chancellor-winters is a, uh, pretty crazy place, huh?

[ Laughs ] I’m loving every minute of it though.

Nate: Good to hear. Good to hear. I was, uh, wondering how you’ve been settling in.

Chance: Yeah, more and more every day. For sure. Billy’s been a great help showing me the ropes.

Nate: Okay. So you’re, uh, comfortable with his mentorship? That he’s collaborative enough?

Chance: You asking about me or are you checking up on billy?

Nate: Um, I don’t know. Why would you ask that?

Chance: I’ve learned an office can be a small world. Word is that you and devon have issues with billy. I’d like to know why.

Devon: Hey.

Billy: Hey.

Devon: You have a second?

Billy: Yeah, please come in.

Devon: Good. So, listen, billy, we, uh– I, uh, I had that conversation with lily about your request to add abbott to the company name and we have an answer for you.

Billy: Why do I feel I’m not gonna like where this is headed?

Devon: Well, listen man, we– we certainly respect your sense of legacy when it comes to your name for jill’s sake, but lily and I feel like we already have a very strong brand name in place.

Billy: Well, true, but it doesn’t mean it can’t be modified.

Devon: True. Another big concern we have though is it might confuse people.

Billy: Confuse people. How so?

Devon: Well, because the name abbott, for as long as I can remember, has been synonymous with jabot. And people might start thinking that our companies are linked when they’re not.

Billy: Yeah, I don’t see that happening. Two very distinct niches.

Devon: Well, either way, uh, lily and I feel like making a name change will shake things up just too much right now.

Billy: Adding abbott to the chancellor-winter’s name is hardly shaking things up, devon. In fact, it further defines this company. It gives it a broader reach, it gives it more name recognition.

Devon: And I hear all the points you’re making, billy. And I’m still sorry to tell you that we’re gonna be keeping the name chancellor-winters as is.

Amanda: Well, jill will be very sorry to hear that. Nothing comes close to this place in the morning.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Devon: Hi, amanda. What are you doing here?

Billy: Hey, I didn’t know you were coming into town.

Amanda: Yeah, jill’s otherwise occupied so she asked me to step in as chief legal counsel for chancellor-winters. She’s sorry she couldn’t be here when you presented the idea, but I am assuming that the answer would’ve been the same.

Devon: Yeah, it would’ve. And she didn’t need to send you. She could’ve picked up the phone.

Billy: Well, clearly she thinks it’s a bigger issue than you do.

Amanda: Face-to-face is much more effective, don’t you think? This is important to jill. And she’s curious why that alone isn’t enough for you to say yes.

Devon: Why that alo– ’cause that’s not the way a partnership works.

Amanda: Please tell me more about how partnerships work.

Devon: Okay. Listen, when jill was running chancellor industries alone, she never once brought up the name being an issue, okay? And then when we merged and rebranded to chancellor-winters again, she never brought it up. So, if this is really about representation of her leadership, then wouldn’t that have been the perfect time to add the name?

Amanda: If this is about her leadership, what else would it be about, devon?

Devon: I don’t know. That’s why I’m asking the question. At first, I thought maybe it was billy wanting to add his name to the company so his interim position would be less interim.

Billy: See, my being here is a sticky point.

Amanda: You’re here per jill’s wishes, just as I am. It’s that simple. And jill has made it very clear to me that she wants billy to be a part of this company long-term. Just as I’m sure that you, lily and nate envision a long-term future as a family in chancellor-winters, correct?

Devon: Yeah, of course we do.

Amanda: And you and lily have strong familial links to the chancellor and winter’s names. Billy and jill do not. So, I have to question, why does it bother you so much to publicly recognize the abbott’s contributions to this company? You know, I actually thought you would want the abbott’s names included. You know, given the fact that they’re practically your in-laws now.

Devon: I have no issues with representing the abbot’s name publicly. All I’m doing is asking questions here, okay? I am asking questions about the motives and the timing. Is it really about jill or is this about billy? That’s all.

Billy: Or maybe it’s about you. ‘Cause it seems to me that you’re the only one blocking the addition of the abbott name and for no good reason.

Nate: Given billy’s history, it’s only natural we’d be cautious. I’m sure you’re aware of some of his more infamous mistakes.

Chance: Yeah, I am. But you know what? Billy owns up to those mistakes, which I admire. Kinda turns ’em into teachable lessons.

Nate: Uh, I’m not sure he is learned them himself.

Chance: Well, from what I heard, you learned a pretty big lesson recently about family and loyalty.

Nate: I have. And, uh, I’d like to think I’ve grown from them and maybe billy has as well to some extent. I guess the issue I have is that jill forced him down our throats.

Chance: Well, I guess that applies to me too.

Nate: Hm. Different circumstance. You’re new to the corporate world, working your way up as it should be. Billy, on the other hand, walked away once already. Then he was brought back unilaterally, clearly with something to prove, which isn’t necessarily in the best interest of this company. I’m sure you can understand my position given you’ve had reservations about billy mentoring you.

Danny: I’m sure you meant everything you just said.

Phyllis: Of course, I mean it. It’s true danny.

Danny: But then you go on implying that there’s something between us when you know that there isn’T. Not more than co-parents and– and almost friends. I keep saying it. You keep ignoring it. You and christine have disregarded everything I’ve said and I just don’t want this complication in my life anymore.

Phyllis: I’m not the one complicating things. It’s not me. It’s not. I mean, you’re holding on to these feelings and memories that you used to have with christine, these unresolved issues. And she knows that. And she’s using that to keep her claws in and she sees what’s going on between us. I mean, she sees it, this bond we have or, I mean, whatever you wanna call it. And it threatens her and she pouts and plays the victim, but you know what I see? I just see the man in front of me. I just see the future that the two of us can have.

[ Doorbell ringing ] Don’t get it. Don’t get it. Please. I know what it’s like

Christine: You certainly didn’t waste any time.

Phyllis: Oh, look at that. Did you bring danny a gift?

Christine: It’s just the masala chai you like.

Danny: Thank you.

Phyllis: That is so funny.

Christine: What’s so funny about tea?

Phyllis: Well, I brought danny a gift too. Mine is big and bold and red and– and yours is a cuppa tea to help him nod off. It’s just the gift says a lot about the giver, doesn’t it?

Danny: Hey, if you two don’t mind, um, I really have a lot of work to do here.

Phyllis: Yeah, he has a lot of work, so why don’t you run along.

Danny: No, I really think you both should leave. Now, please.

Christine: Actually, danny, I said a few things that I regret the other day. I just wanted to talk to you.

Phyllis: A few things that were childish when you resorted to name calling?

Christine: You know, I just wanted to have a moment with danny alone. But, of course, you’re here because wherever he is, you’re not far behind. Can you just show yourself out?

Phyllis: I wouldn’t dream of it. Danny and I were in the middle of a very important intense conversation, weren’t we?

Danny: No, you were actually just about to leave phyllis.

Phyllis: No, we were just getting to the good part.

Christine: Oh, my god. Why do you do this? Why do you make everything a scene?

Phyllis: Why can you not accept that there’s something going on between me and danny?

Christine: Oh, my god, because you are stalking him. Big difference from an actual relationship.

Danny: I seem to remember asking you both to give me some time and some space and yet here you are back in my place again. What don’t you understand about boundaries? I’m confused here.

Phyllis: I never really believed in boundaries, to be honest. And I think that we could both agree, there’s nothing wrong with going after love.

Christine: You don’t love danny. You love making my life hell.

Chance: I won’t lie to you. I did have my doubts at first, but I was wrong. Billy’s been great on every level. He’s been a great mentor and I’m very grateful.

Nate: I’m glad to hear it.

Chance: And for someone that you think is this disruptor, I’m telling you, the guy has done nothing but cheerlead this company to me. I mean, I’ve seen his enthusiasm, I’ve seen his excitement for chancellor-winters to succeed and it’s contagious. Now, I would think that you would want someone like that at the top.

Nate: Absolutely. But it’s no secret jill and my aunt mamie don’t trust each other. And that has a way of trickling down. Now look, I don’t want this to turn into an us versus them situation. No one needs petty office politics distracting us from the business at hand.

Chance: Nate, with all due respect, the only two that seem to be pushing us versus them are you and devon. Billy has never said a negative word about either of you. So, maybe you could offer him the same courtesy. Quit focusing on his past, focus on his present and his future. I’m telling you, the guy might surprise you.

Nate: That’s what we’re worried about.

Devon: Um, we have a lot more pressing things to deal with today, so can we shelf this for now?

Billy: And just like that, another unilateral decision once again.

Devon: I’ll tell you what billy, we can wait ’til lily comes back and then you can hear everything I just said straight from her mouth and then we’ll make the decision.

Billy: Okay. Good. If that helps, that’s great.

Amanda: Jill would like this result sooner rather than later. And I would like to make that happen while I’m in town.

Billy: How long do you plan on staying?

Amanda: Only as long as I need to.

Devon: Well, lily is gonna take as much time as she needs with her daughter and she’s not gonna be rushed, okay? So, if you have to go back east before she comes home, we’ll understand. Are we done?

Amanda: Don’t let us keep you.

Devon: Great.

Billy: Well, now. Hi.

Amanda: Hi.

Billy: How are you? Um, okay. That was, uh, that was kind of intense.

Amanda: I don’t know. Just being my normal self.

Billy: Did jill really bring you here just for this?

Amanda: Oh, for the name and to gauge other dynamics at play. Your mother really can read a room, even at a distance.

Billy: Yeah. Look, the truth is devon doesn’t trust me. He doesn’t involve me in key decisions. He makes decisions and then, tells me about it later in order to keep me contained.

Amanda: Now, that is unacceptable.

Billy: I don’t blame him, given my history.

Amanda: Come on, billy. Everyone here has history.

Billy: Oh, yeah. No, that was clear a few times just now.

Amanda: Devon knows that I have no hard feelings against him anymore.

Billy: Hm.

Amanda: I told him that at the gala. I let it all go.

Billy: Okay, look. I’m just saying that I’m glad you’re on my team, okay? Mine and jill’s, of course.

Amanda: Well, in order to move things forward in the direction that jill wants, devon is gonna need to trust you and vice versa.

Billy: No, I agree. I have to figure out a way to change his perspective.

Amanda: Well, devon probably thinks that I’m the bad cop right now. You’re welcome. So go. It’s your chance to play good cop.

Billy: You are a wily one, amanda sinclair.

Amanda: It is nice to be appreciated. Onto my next item on the agenda.

Can the flavor of a slow

cooked smoked sausage

Devon: Hey, did amanda leave?

Billy: Yep. People to see, things to do.

Devon: Well, that was a whole lot to have jill send her here without warning me. Don’t you think?

Billy: Look, look, devon, my mom couldn’t make it, okay? And clearly she thinks this an issue that she doesn’t want to fall to the wayside.

Devon: An issue about a name.

Billy: No, it’s bigger than that, okay? That’s a symptom of it, but it’s clear since I’ve been back to chancellor-winters you don’t trust me, so what’s that about? I mean, you think you’re gonna screw things up here? Am I gonna hurt the company? You think I’m gonna orchestrate a coup? Rest assured, none of that is gonna happen. I am here to work with you, to raise this company to new heights.

Devon: Okay. For starters, billy, you wouldn’t be at the company at all if I just flat out didn’t trust you, so that’s not the case. I just know you, and I’ve known you for a long time and you’re a smooth talker.

Billy: Usually, I would take that as a compliment.

Devon: Usually, I try to give you the benefit of the doubt.

Billy: Despite my history.

Devon: Despite your history. And it raised red flags for me when you were the one to bring up this name change.

Billy: Don’t you think you’re exaggerating this just a little bit?

Devon: I don’t, no. I don’t think questioning the timing or the motives is exaggerating anything at all. And don’t forget, you were all in with us when we started this company. You were all in with lily too. And then you walked away from us and her, and you went and started a podcast and then went back to jabot, and now you’re back here and you wanna put your name on the company.

Billy: No, that’s my mother’s name. And she owns half this company.

Devon: And it wasn’t an issue either until you got here. And who’s to say how long you’re gonna stick around? Or hell, maybe you’re gonna stay and try to make over the company in your own image to prove something to someone or yourself. I don’t know. It’s just hard to trust someone who’s usually all in on themselves.

Billy: Okay. Then, I need to rectify that perception. Look, I spent most of my adult life trying to protect and honor my father’s legacy. But the truth is, I’m more jill abbott than I am john. Devon, I wanna be here now and into the future, and I’m gonna prove myself to you. But I can’t do that alone. I need you to give me a chance. We need to figure out how to work together openly and honestly going forward. Can we do that?

Abby: This bottle is gonna be warm before tessa’s off her call. This was supposed to be a party.

Mariah: I know. My wife, manager of the hottest restaurant in town, and she’s stuck on the phone with the produce guy.

Abby: Did I forget to mention how glamorous this job is?

Mariah: You know, I think you let that part out.

Abby: Oh, sorry. [ Laughter ]

Amanda: Wow, this looks festive. What are we celebrating?

Abby: Uh, I hired tessa as manager.

Mariah: Yeah, we were hoping to toast to her new beginning, but, uh, she’s stuck on the phone with vendors.

Amanda: So, you won’t be presiding here anymore? Is that so you can focus on chancellor-winters?

Abby: Yes, exactly.

Amanda: Huh. Mariah, do you mind if I, um, borrow abby just for a minute? There’s a few things I’d like to discuss with her.

Mariah: Yeah, sure, of course. Um, I guess I will go check on tessa in the back, if I can go in there, of course.

Abby: Yes. Yeah.

Mariah: Okay.

Abby: So amanda, what can I help you with?

Amanda: Don’t worry, abby. This is not about old news. I’m in town filling in for jill. I just came from chancellor-winters and I noticed that devon doesn’t seem very happy that billy came to work there. So, I was hoping that you could tell me how serious these objections are.

Christine: You keep telling the world that you’ve changed and you begged danny to see this new woman that you are, but let’s just face it. You’re the same nasty, mean girl you’ve always been.

Phyllis: At least I’m not boring. Maybe that’s why paul dumped you.

Danny: Phyllis–

Phyllis: Yeah. Maybe that’s why paul dumped you and then you glommed on to danny because you don’t wanna be alone.

Danny: If you’re gonna do this, do you guys mind taking it out in the hallway, please?

Christine: Danny and my connection is real based on love we’ve shared for decades. Oh, and with you, what? Oh, oh yeah. You’ve– you’ve lied to him, you’ve cheated, you’ve manipulated him, you’ve hurt him. And you want him to just forget that and fall into your arms?

Phyllis: I’ve made mistakes. I admitted every single one of them.

Christine: Wait, what? You have never admitted that. You’ve never taken responsibility for all the horrible things that you’ve done. And it’s not just with danny. I mean, you faked your own murder. You should be in prison. But no, once again, you talked your way out of facing the consequences of your actions.

Phyllis: And there it is. There it is. You couldn’t punish me and put me behind bars. Right, christine? So, you’re using danny right now to get back at me. That’s what you’re doing.

Christine: You are the one who uses people. You drug them. Oh, you– you– you switch their dna test, you run them over. You put an octopus in their bed.

Phyllis: Are you serious?

Christine: And with–

Phyllis: Are you holding a grudge over that?

Christine: No remorse. No remorse. No remorse ever. You say you’ve changed, you’re incapable of changing. Danny knows that. Right, danny?

[ Laughs ] Okay. Great. Now, you’ve done it.

Phyllis: I didn’t do anything. That was all you. (Screams)

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Christine: I’m serious. This has to stop.

Phyllis: Then stop it. Then go. Walk away.

Christine: You don’t understand. He doesn’t wanna be involved with you. He’s not interested, nor will he ever be. You are not what he wants.

Phyllis: Oh, and what you two have together, it’s so precious, the love you have together?

Christine: Yes, phyllis, we will always find our way back to each other. No lies, no drugs. Just the strength of our connection.

Phyllis: Mm. Except that teensy weensy little problem that he admitted that he thought I was important.

Christine: Oh my– you know, as a friend outta pity.

Phyllis: Do you see the man he is now? Do you even see who he really is? I mean, you’re holding onto these old moldy memories of the two of you. But do you see the man he is now? He sees the woman that I am. That’s for sure. And the two of us are new and exciting and fun. We don’t have some old love that we’re holding onto that should have died years ago.

[ Christine scoffs ]

Christine: You keep talking about how you’ve changed. You’re as conniving as ever. Using your son still to get to danny, that’s the kind of woman and mother you are.

[ Christine laughs ]

Phyllis: Okay. I just– christine, have you thought that maybe my son would be happy that his parents are back together?

Christine: No. God, you talk about love and wanting to be in love, but you have killed the love in every relationship you have ever had. And it worries you that you’re gonna spend the rest of your life alone. Look at you. It scares you to death. And you think danny loving you is gonna fix it? No! Guess what? You can’t be fixed. You’re broken. Nobody wants you. Especially not danny.

Phyllis: You…

Christine: Yeah. Come on.

Phyllis: Are a bitch.

Christine: Do it. Do something. Give me any reason to press charges.

Nate: You and I have something in common. We started as outsiders. You come from law enforcement and I’m from the medical field. Now, some might see that as a disadvantage, but I like to think we apply those skills we learned in those fields to make a real difference in what we bring to the corporate world.

Chance: So, we don’t know all the rules and we break ’em in a good way. Yeah?

Nate: Something like that. That’s why I’d like to offer my support. And I’m sure you have lots of ideas and as head of content and development, I might be able to help.

Chance: You know, I do have a couple ideas I’d like to run by you before I take them to billy and devon.

Nate: Okay. Talk to me.

Chance: Well, I noticed several of our divisions are being underutilized. So, I did some research on how to maximize the potential and I came up with the idea of creating a music festival. Now the numbers, they’re– they’re promising, right? We’d see a significant boost in marketing and merchandising and not to mention all the additional name recognition for chancellor-winters.

Nate: Interesting.

Chance: It’s too big though, right? That’s too much?

Nate: The festival, uh, is a big risk. Um, a huge outlay of cash.

Chance: So no.

Nate: So why not run with it and see where it goes?

Chance: Really?

Nate: I had the same idea back in the day but, um, devon felt the timing wasn’t right. But it’s a new day and I think the two of us working together could create a model that would convince devon that this would be a brilliant idea.

Chance: That would be great. And you’ve work with me, huh? No, us versus them stuff?

Nate: Not at all. I’d be happy to back you up and help you with the pitch.

Chance: All right. Well, I look forward to learning from you.

Nate: I’m sure you’ll teach me a thing or two as well.

Chance: Ah.

[ Chance laughs ]

Abby: I don’t know what I can say.

Amanda: Jill wants chancellor-winters to be a unified front against all comers, including tucker mccall.

Abby: Unified, yet you want me to betray devon’s trust by discussing his personal feelings about billy?

[ Amanda laughs ]

Amanda: “Betray.” Really? If there’s a problem, abby, I just wanna help solve it.

Abby: No, you don’T. You want me to convince devon to accept billy and work with him.

Amanda: Well, that would be best case scenario for everyone. You don’t have a problem because it’s me asking, do you?

Devon: Billy, I would love to talk about moving forward ’cause I don’t know what that even looks like. You came in here as an interim ceo ’cause lily’s gone. When she comes back, where does that put you?

Billy: No, you’re right. I am filling in for lily at the moment, but I do have my own purview and it’s one that I plan to execute. But devon, we need to find a way to understand each other.

Devon: I completely agree with that. Why don’t we start with the chip on your shoulder.

Billy: My shoulder?

Devon: Yeah, your shoulder. You wanna talk about trust issues. It’s clear you don’t trust me. Would you like to explain why?

Billy: Sure. I think you have an issue working with other people.

Devon: Yeah.

Billy: I mean you worked well with neil and that was great, but other than that, you and lily had a fallout. I don’t have to tell you how hurt she was when you chose business over her.

Devon: My relationship with my sister doesn’t need to be in this conversation.

Billy: Okay. Well, then how about this? Chancellor-winters is more than just about you. And given the corporate structure and the players involved, your it’s my way or the highway mentality is just not gonna work.

We live our lives

on our home’s fabrics.

Billy: Look, we all know how you got to this point. You’ve operated independently for a very long time. You’ve honed a very special way of working total autonomy. But devon, it’s a problem. It was a problem with other colleagues at this company and now it’s a problem with me.

Devon: Well, I’m assuming that the other problems with colleagues you’re referring to was maybe when nate was trying to sell our company out from under us, and I was trying to protect everybody.

Billy: You only joined forces with victoria because you shut down every single idea he had.

Devon: Oh.

Billy: And as far as jill and lily, that got so bad that it almost crushed this company.

Devon: The company wasn’t close to being crushed. And that was all because I thought it was a bad idea to take the company public and I still think that.

Billy: And you are willing to go behind lily’s back for that?

Devon: Again, lily doesn’t need to be in this conversation.

Billy: Okay, fine. But you and lily made up and you are closer now than you’ve ever been. You gave nate a second chance, so I know you’re capable of it.

Devon: Well, then this is about you wanting a second chance. That’s what I’m getting.

Billy: All I’m asking for is the opportunity to be on level playing field like you’ve put them. Okay? But it can’t be just me, devon. I can’t be the only one trying to prove myself to you. You need to prove yourself to me. We need to be able to trust each other’s judgment.

Devon: I think the fact that I ran a successful company for over a decade should be all the proof you need in my judgment. And all I’ve been doing is asking questions. That’s it. You’re the one making demands. You’re the one throwing around accusations. So, we’ve clearly gotten off on the wrong foot, and I’m not holding my breath that things are gonna get much better.

Abby: Do you really think I’m not easily manipulated? That I’ll do whatever you want because I feel like I owe you? Amanda, I am sorry that I hurt you. But to use that regret to get whatever you want, it’s shameless.

Amanda: You have completely misunderstood me. Abby, you have a vested interest and responsibility to make chancellor-winters as strong as possible. Once you’re officially on the board, I mean.

Abby: That’s not a threat, is it?

[ Amanda scoffs ]

Amanda: Of course not. I know you’re fond of billy. He is brilliant, forward thinking and yes, he’s, you know, had some moments where he didn’t exactly shine, but I think that devon is unfairly holding that against him. And haven’t we all done things that we regret? But look at us, right? And look at chance. He has gone on to work for his family’s business. I’m sure that devon and him have meetings all the time. So, I just don’t understand why the four of us can’t work together on this.

Abby: Billy doesn’t need you or jill fighting his battles. So, why don’t we trust devon and billy to work it out themselves?

Lauren: Hey, stranger. I haven’t seen much of you.

Danny: Hey, right back at you.

Lauren: How’s it going?

Danny: Never better.

Lauren: What’s wrong?

Danny: I’m starting to think that my next concert tour can’t come soon enough. My celebrity colorist?

Summer: Hey.

Chance: Hi.

Nate: Summer, good to see you.

Summer: You too.

Nate: And, uh, I should get back to the office.

Chance: Yeah, I’m, uh, right behind you.

Nate: Take your time.

Summer: So, big work conversation?

Chance: Yeah. Yeah. Nate likes one of my ideas and he wants to support it. I think I’m getting the hang of this corporate thing.

Summer: I knew that you would.

Chance: Oh, you did, did you?

Summer: I did. I knew that you’d show up in your cool marchetti clothes and absolutely rock it.

[ Chance laughs ]

[ Abby sighs ]

Mariah: So, amanda showing up.

Abby: Yeah, that caught me off guard, but I think I held my own.

Mariah: What did she want?

Abby: It’s about chancellor-winters, but of course, she made it personal.

Mariah: Yikes. That sounds messy.

Abby: It could be. I have to wait for the board vote to find out.

Amanda: Hey.

Billy: Hey, you’re back.

Amanda: So, how did it go with devon? You had a chance to talk to him?

Billy: Let’s just say it’s very clear that devon has no intention of working together.

Amanda: That’s what I was afraid of. That’s why I went to see abby.

Billy: Abby?

Amanda: I wanted to get some insight into where devon’s head’s at regarding you and the company.

Billy: Do you really think that was a good idea?

Amanda: Well, it was worth a shot.

Billy: Yeah, I don’t know about that.

Amanda: Billy, devon resents you, but he probably resents jill even more for bringing you in. I don’t think that he has trusted her since she tried to take the company public. So any move you make is suspect and gets an automatic no.

Billy: And given the fact that mamie and tucker had a secret plan to come after this company, devon probably thinks my mother does too. Now, the fact that she sent you here only reinforces that.

Amanda: Well, I have a legitimate reason to be here.

Billy: Going after abby for information is not legitimate. Look, I appreciate you coming here, but you need to back off and you just need to let me handle this.

Amanda: I have complete faith in you, billy. I do, but–

Billy: But my mother doesn’T. Is that what you’re trying to say?

Amanda: No, no. I– I was not saying that. She’s proud of you and she has faith in you. And most importantly, she believes that you two are the right team to take this company higher.

Billy: I agree. If we get a chance to do that.

Amanda: This company is divided. Jill believes that mamie johnson and tucker are huge threats. And this office culture is explosive. Jill wants me to get everyone on the same team. That is my job and that is what I intend to do whether everyone likes it or not.

Phyllis: Oh, my god, christine, you think I’d hit you? Wow. I’d never do something like that. You’re not worth the risk.

Christine: And you’re out of control as always.

Phyllis: No, I’m actually in control. I am. You see, when you were out buying that cute little tea tin for danny, I was here getting very, very close to him until you showed up and ruined everything and scared him away.

Christine: You’re pathetic. I almost feel sorry for you.

Phyllis: You’re afraid that you lost danny all over again. Well, that’s okay. You have your memories and your connection to keep you warm at night.

Christine: God!

[ Christine sighs ]

Lauren: What’s going on?

Danny: Oh, it’s cricket and phyllis.

Lauren: Oh.

Danny: Yeah.

Lauren: Are they fighting over you again?

Danny: Is this my fault?

Lauren: You mean because you are charming, sweet, talented and handsome? It is so your fault.

Danny: Cricket accused me of playing them off each other like I’m secretly enjoying this.

Lauren: Your face is not saying that you’re having a good time. And you and christine were so happy on new year’s eve. What happened? Oh, wait, phyllis happened.

Danny: She claims to have real feelings for me and that I’m a big part of her journey of becoming a nicer and gentler phyllis and she just wants to see where this goes and–

Lauren: But?

Danny: But this interest to me is just part of the big feud between her and christine.

Lauren: Well, that does sound like our friend. Although, she is trying to be a better person.

Danny: Yeah, I– I know. I– I’ve been impressed. I mean, she’s showing impulse control, maturity. Well, I don’t know, maybe most of the time.

Lauren: But you have feelings for christine?

Danny: Yes, very much so.

Lauren: Have you talked to them?

Danny: It’s gotten so bad that I had to tell them both, that we all have to take a break.

Lauren: Oh.

Danny: Yeah.

Lauren: How’d they take that?

Danny: Well, they showed up with gifts at my place. Yeah, that’s why I’m here. They were going at it so much, they didn’t even notice me leave.

[ Lauren laughs ]

Lauren: No wonder you are wishing for your tour to start.

Danny: Yeah.

Lauren: All right, so let me get this straight. You have feelings for both of them?

Danny: No, no, no. Why does it always come out sounding like that? I– I care for phyllis as a friend. But both she and cricket, they think that– that it’s something much, much more. And I– I– I don’t know.

Lauren: And it’s not much more? If you are willing to put your relationship with christine in jeopardy, then maybe you see phyllis as more than just a friend.
