Phyllis: Oh, my goodness!

Amanda: Phyllis.

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness! So good to see you! I can’t believe you’re here!

Amanda: Well, you know you can come visit me. There are planes and buses, trains.

Phyllis: You know, don’t tempt me, because I may jump into your suitcase and start living in your guest room.

Amanda: Do it, please. But may I ask why?

Phyllis: Ah, I don’t wanna talk about me. Let’s talk about you. Why are you back in town?

Amanda: Battle preparations.

Nate: Aunt mamie? You’re looking wonderful, as always.

Mamie: Well, I can say the same to you.

[ Nate chuckles ] I’m so pleased that you were able to meet me for lunch at this hour.

Nate: Always happy to spend time with you. So, tell me, how was your trip?

Mamie: Oh, it was fine. But I wanna talk about chancellor-winters. A little birdie told me that there was a certain chill in the office.

Nate: Esther? What did she say?

Mamie: Well, enough for me to wonder if everyone’s focused on working as a team. Or if there might be something that might need my attention.

Chance: Hey, sorry to intrude. Left a file. I was just gonna grab it.

Billy: Sure. Chance, before you go, I just wanna make sure. Are we good?

Chance: Of course.

Billy: Okay. Look, don’t take what happened here earlier personally, okay? My response to your pitch was not a reflection of the actual idea. Music festivals, they have a lot of potential, but there’s a lot of moving parts, and they need to be very tight. But I think it’s something that chancellor-winters would be excited about in the future.

Chance: Sure.

Billy: Okay, good.

Chance: Actually, billy, I think it would help if we hash some things out real quick.

Tucker: Audra?

Jack: Ashley now insists that she was wrong, that tucker wasn’t violent in paris after all.

Diane: Just like that?

Jack: Just like that. And as pleased as I am that she may have found some peace with the incident, I am concerned that she may be susceptible to that man all over again.

Kyle: Well, I don’t see that happening. The breakup was real, their marriage is over. It’s clearly gotten past the point of no return.

Jack: I don’t know, I just sense a vulnerability there with that man’s concerned. And it worries me.

Diane: I’m with kyle on this. Ashley is a grown woman. She knows who she is. I think you need to give her some credit to handle tucker the way she wants to.

Jack: You sound a lot like billy. He thinks I should back off.

Kyle: I can’t believe I’m saying this, but maybe you should listen to him.

Jack: How can I do that when I know how deeply, how often he has hurt her? And as much as she says she’s gonna be able to handle him, the look on her face when she said the other day that he had broken her… here is no way in hell I am going to let that man hurt ashley again.

Ashley: Ooh, spicy. You’re certainly worked up.

Audra: You know, I’d like to get a few things straight.

Ashley: Didn’t we already have this conversation?

Audra: It’s my turn to do the talking.

Ashley: Oh. I don’t suppose you’ll leave if I ask you nicely?

Audra: You know, tucker told me you went up to his suite last night.

Ashley: Oh, did he?

Audra: Yeah, we don’t keep secrets. Our relationship is based on honesty.

Ashley: Oh, that’s so sweet. Are we done now?

Audra: You’re done with tucker.

[ Ashley laughs ]

Ashley: Well, that’s not your call.

Audra: You know this game you’re playing? You miraculously decide that you were wrong about paris, that tucker wasn’t violent, and so you sneak up to his suite and ambush him with your new truth?

Ashley: Wow, tucker really did overshare, didn’t he?

Audra: It’s not gonna work, ashley. If you’ve changed your mind and decided that you now want a future with tucker, it’s too late. Okay, you blew it. So you need to back off. He’s with me now.

Ashley: But you’re not sure about that, are you? And that’s why you’re here. Because you’re very afraid that he’s not over me, aren’t you?

Audra: You’ve hurt tucker for the last time. So if you try to seduce him as part of your sick plan, you’re gonna have to deal with me.

Ashley: Ooh. Scary. (Vo) the shape that stole your heart

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Ashley: What is this dynamic that you’ve got with tucker? I mean, clearly you’ve got daddy issues.

Audra: Tucker’s and my connection is none of your business.

Ashley: That’s true. But it’s fascinating how you’re playing this.

Audra: Look, what I have with tucker isn’t a game.

Ashley: Of course it is, audra. Come on. We both know you’re an opportunist. Tucker’s heartbroken and he’s vulnerable and you’re there, ready to hold his hand and whatever else.

Audra: Yeah, well, we have a future. Okay, real plans.

[ Ashley laughs ] He’s actually taking me to paris.

Ashley: Oh, really? That’s where we had our honeymoon.

Audra: Yeah, well, that’s even more proof that he’s over you.

Ashley: But I will say you should probably avoid a certain café there if I were you.

Audra: Yeah, well, our trip is nothing like your trainwreck of a honeymoon. He wants me to meet the board at glissade, and we’re gonna create a company like no one has ever seen and I just can’t wait.

Ashley: You’re gonna create a company like nobody has ever seen. Isn’t that interesting? You and I were gonna do the exact same thing.

Audra: Yeah, well, unlike you, I won’t go back on my word to him. Yeah, run home to my family because I’m so afraid to step outside their shadow.

Ashley: Do you have a family to run home to? I’m interested in knowing that. I mean, are you just all alone in the world? Is that why you’ve glommed on to tucker the way you have? You’ve got nowhere else to go?

Audra: Well, tucker’s all I need, and I’m all he needs.

Ashley: Uh-huh. Spoken like a true romantic, only that is not what you are at all. You are more of a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately kind of gal, aren’t you?

Audra: Now go ahead, make fun of me, but understand this. You do not wanna go to war with me. You may think you’re tough, but trust me, it will end badly for you.

Jack: Just look at that smug bastard.

Diane: I know you wanna be protective of your sister, but you need to let her handle him.

Jack: I can’t just do nothing.

Diane: Jack!

[ Sighs ] And here I thought we were going to have a nice, quiet meal.

Kyle: Well, you know how protective dad is.

Jack: Well, you are just a demon we can’t seem to exorcise.

Tucker: Evan, two glasses of your finest holy water. No? Come on, that was funny.

Jack: Not funny.

Tucker: Maybe you’re the one with the demon.

Jack: Ashley tells me she’s changed her mind about what happened in paris.

Tucker: Yes. Yes, she’s finally seen the light. And she was big enough to admit it to me.

Jack: Well, don’t think for one second she’s changed her mind about how dangerous you are. Your lies, your manipulations, your constant threat to her happiness. Why don’t you do what you should’ve done months ago? Hop on a jet out of town and don’t look back.

Tucker: Jack, when are you going to let your sister live her life the way she chooses?

Amanda: Thank you.

Phyllis: Battle plans? Really? I love this. I wanna be a part of it because I love a good fight.

Amanda: Mmm. Well, you’re lucky I don’t take you on for making me believe you were dead.

Phyllis: Hey, hey, listen, I apologized for that. I apologized. I said I was sorry and I meant it.

Amanda: Just don’t ever die on me again, please.

Phyllis: Okay, well, don’t die on me, okay? Wait, what is this battle plan thing?

Amanda: Oh, I am standing in for jill. I’m overseeing everything at chancellor-winters, so it’s pretty much office politics on steroids.

Phyllis: Oh, it’s billy, isn’t it? It’s always billy.

Amanda: Actually, yeah, it kind of is.

Phyllis: He is a troublemaker.

Amanda: My mission is to shore up the jill, billy, chance side of things.

Phyllis: Well, maybe billy needs an ally.

Amanda: Mm. All troublemakers usually do.

Mamie: All I could get out of esther was that there was something in the air. And that john abbott and neil winters wouldn’t be happy about it. Honey, I need some details from you.

Nate: There’s definitely something when it comes to billy and devon. Did you know billy proposed we add abbott to the company name? Abbott-chancellor-winters, to be exact.

Mamie: Excuse me?

Nate: Billy pitched that jill deserved her due.

Mamie: The nerve of him. Well, I know that. Devon turned him down?

Nate: He discussed it with lily and they nixed it, for now, with a promise to revisit it once she’s back.

Mamie: Yeah, well, there’ll be no revisiting if i have anything to say about it.

Nate: Jill’s not gonna let it go that easily, aunt mamie. Amanda sinclair came to town on jill’s orders because of this issue.

Mamie: She sent for amanda sinclair? Oh, jill is really playing it dirty, but then she doesn’t know any other way to play it. She and her minions, nothing but trouble.

Nate: Actually, I’m impressed with chance.

Mamie: Oh, why is that?

Nate: Well, he’s smart, um, fast learner. He’s already come up with some great ideas.

Mamie: What does devon think?

Nate: He seems to be impressed.

Mamie: Oh, isn’t billy mentoring chance?

Nate: Uh, billy is, but, uh, chance seems to have taken a step back from that.

Mamie: Why is that?

Nate: Well, chance came up with a solid idea recently, one I see real value in. Devon bent over backwards to appear impressed, willing to collaborate on the idea. But billy just kind of shot it down for no good reason. More flex than anything, if you ask me.

Mamie: Chance didn’t like it?

Nate: Being second-guessed? Dismissed? Not at all.

Mamie: The same way that you felt some time ago with devon.

Nate: You’re not wrong. There’s definitely some friction between billy and chance. In fact, chance turned to me for support. I’ve told him I’ll do whatever I can to help.

Mamie: Now, this is a very interesting development, especially if you can keep chance on your good side. You know the fewer allies that billy and jill have, the better.

Billy: So you are upset that I didn’t support your proposal, which is fine. So, what do you wanna say?

Chance: Look, I know I still have a lot to learn here. I know you and I are still trying to find our groove together, but in that meeting, I felt a shift, and I’m not really sure I’m comfortable with it.

Billy: A shift?

Chance: Yeah.

Billy: What kind of shift?

Chance: That was a good idea.

Billy: And I agree.

Chance: And I felt like your response was part of another issue.

Billy: Is that right?

Chance: You and devon. Once he liked it, you stepped back, you slammed on the brakes, and then the meeting turned into a– a tug-of-war between the two of you.

Billy: One thing I’ve come to appreciate about you, chance, is your bluntness. Look, you need to understand that devon and I are trying to find a balance here. The hierarchy between the two of us is new, but rest assured, there is no power struggle.

Chance: Well, I wish I could believe that. But from what I’ve seen, it feels like you and devon are trying to prove something to each other. And now, billy, I love working here, I love working with you, but I will not be used by you or devon.

You’re the one that I want! You used my pitch to go after devon. I mean, you basically shelved a good idea, an idea that you admitted was good because devon supported it. Now, how’s that good business?

Billy: That is business, chance. What you just described is business. We bounce ideas off each other. Some of them we use, some of them we shelve, some of them we– we kill, some of them we use at a later date. And once you get a little more experience, you’ll realize that. But right now, you’re taking everything a little too personal.

Chance: This is not about my feelings, billy, and I’d appreciate it if you weren’t so condescending, okay? Now, I know what I saw. Nate saw it too, by the way.

Billy: Yeah?

Chance: Yeah.

Billy: Talked to nate about it?

Chance: You left the meeting. We were discussing how to develop my proposal into something you would approve of.

Billy: Yeah, and nate approved of your idea?

Chance: He did, and I value his input.

Billy: Well, good. Look, I’m sorry that you’re upset about the way that I responded to your pitch, okay? But if I have a critique on your idea, it’s because I want you to learn the ropes. I want you to understand how the corporate world works. But if you’re gonna get upset every time I make a comment, then maybe we need to rethink this situation.

Chance: Again, it’s not about my feelings, billy. I can take criticism. What I don’t appreciate is being weaponized in a power struggle that I want nothing to do with.

Billy: Again, I’m sorry you’re upset. I gave you my opinion. No angle. Nothing. Just my opinion, okay? I’m not using you. I don’t have ulterior motives. I do wanna see you succeed, and I think you have the talent to do it. And if I’m protecting you right now, chance, it’s because I wanna nurture you, okay? I wanna see you grow here.

Chance: Okay, well, i appreciate the good start you’ve given me, billy, but maybe it’s time to give me a little less protection and a little more room.

Phyllis: Well, I am sorry about your mom. She was really beautiful, very impressive woman. Very classy. You should have had more time with her.

Amanda: Yeah. Well, I’m just grateful for the time we did have.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Amanda: Yeah. Well, speaking of time, I, um, I have to go.

Phyllis: Oh.

Amanda: Yeah.

Phyllis: Okay.

Amanda: What are you up to?

Phyllis: Oh, uh, I’m just gonna be thinking about, you know, my bad luck and my bad choices.

Amanda: Oh, stop it. You’re too fierce for that.

Phyllis: You are too fierce. You are. Go. Go whip chancellor-winters into shape.

[ Amanda laughs ]

Amanda: I’m gonna do just that.

Ashley: Are you threatening me?

Audra: It’s a friendly warning. I have much more experience at fighting dirty than you, and I enjoy it much more than I should.

Ashley: Hmm. You’re in love with tucker.

Audra: I understand him.

Ashley: Well, believing that is your first mistake.

Audra: Hmm. Tucker and I are alike. Our minds work in the same way. We want the same things, and we believe in the same things.

Ashley: Yeah, well, hmm, tucker only believes in tucker, so…

Audra: See, that’s how I know you don’t get him at all. And the way you treated him… you know, how many hoops did you jump through to prove that he is just so worthy of the great ashley abbott? And you did all of that just so you could dump his ass over some bogus drama that only happened in your head.

Ashley: Poor, stupid audra. You’ve really got it bad, haven’t you? That makes this situation even more interesting.

Audra: Then admit it. Tell me that you want tucker back.

Ashley: I don’t have to admit anything to you, you bitch.

Audra: You know, it doesn’t matter, because you’ve already lost. And you lost bad.

Jack: My sister would never choose you.

Tucker: I’ll survive.

Jack: She knows who you are now. She’s done with you, for good.

Tucker: Jack… I– I don’t think you see what’s going on here. Everything that’s transpired, my argument with ashley in paris and our breakup, it all really comes down to you.

Jack: To me?

Tucker: Yeah, yeah. You have this, um… [ Chuckles ] …It’s pathetic, this obsessive need to keep an iron grip on your family. And it’s what caused your son to almost betray the family. Uh, it’s what’s pushed billy back to chancellor-winters. And it is damn near broken ashley’s spirit. So, if you’re looking for someone to blame, you might wanna look in the mirror. Sorry.

Jack: So that’s it? That’s all you got? Throwing around absurd accusations? How about we start with the facts? Kyle never betrayed the family. In fact, his actions helped put you down for good. Billy went back to chancellor-winters to protect his mother from your attacks. And you broke ashley’s spirit by insisting that she turn her back on a family that she loves.

Tucker: [ Scoffs ] See, that’s pathetic, man.

Jack: Pathetic?

Tucker: Yeah, whatever helps you sleep at night.

Jack: “Pathetic.” I am here having a lovely meal with my wife and son, and you are sitting alone at a bar knowing your son has barred you from his life. Who’s the pathetic one here? The right age for

Tucker: I do have to hand it to you, jack, uh, you and the rest of the abbotts, you really did a number on me. Resurrecting the old scandal, and influencing ashley against me. You brought me to my knees, man. Really, well done. But as they say, the obstacle is the path, right? So maybe I should thank you for creating this new opportunity for me to go bigger than I ever have.

Jack: “The obstacle is the path.” Do you have any idea how absurd you sound?

Tucker: No, I mean it. Ashley selling me glissade, it’s become the key to my future. New company, new life. And I couldn’t be more excited. Especially when I kick some jabot ass.

Jack: I thought you weren’t coming after jabot.

Tucker: It’s just– innovative new company makes jabot look like a tired old workhorse. That’s just inspired business acumen.

Jack: Oh, that’s right. Your arrogance just amazes me. That you think for one minute, a ragtag collection of moribund companies run by a man who knows nothing about the beauty business is going to be a threat to jabot, why? Because you want to believe it’s true? Astonishing.

Tucker: What can I tell you? I’m a big believer in the power of positive thinking.

Jack: Well, I’ll look forward to watching you fail. In the meantime, stay away from my sister.

Tucker: And what if she can’t stay away from me?

Jack: Do not tempt me to take the gloves off.

[ Tucker sighs ]

Tucker: Is that a threat, jack?

Jack: Threat, warning, promise, you call it anything you want. I want you to stay away from her. You’re never going to hurt her again.

[ Phone ringing ] Hello? Yes.

Diane: We have publicly discredited tucker, humiliated him. His marriage has been annulled, his son wants nothing to do with him, and yet, he continues to be this menace to all of us.

Kyle: Who knows? Maybe he’ll get bored of us all and move on.

Diane: Well, I doubt it. He seems more emboldened than ever. And you know how obsessed he is with ashley. She’s strong, but what if we’re wrong? What if he manages to suck her back in, and then jack will be pulled back in as well?

Kyle: Mom, dad can handle himself.

Diane: Well, he’s just dealing with a lot right now. Jabot and looking after nikki.

Kyle: Well, he’s got us to pick up the slack at jabot if needed.

Diane: Yeah, I guess that’s true, but still…

Kyle: Mom. This isn’t about the company, is it? I’m guessing your real concern is dad’s renewed connection to nikki.

Nate: I agree. Chance could be a valuable asset for the good of the company. Not as some pawn in a power struggle between us and the abbotts.

Mamie: Jill has declared war. There’s no backing down now.

Nate: Didn’t you bring the war when you secretly invested in this company?

Mamie: My investment has always been in this family. Now, if that means war to some people, then that’s on them. This is about the winters’ legacy. We have got to come together to make sure that’s what happens.

Nate: Auntie, I love you, but I am not interested in contributing to this struggle. I’ve lived through conflict on two previous fronts. First with devon and then at newman. It never ends well.

Mamie: Oh, honey, that’s just because you didn’t get the ending that you wanted. This time, it’s going to be different.

Nate: Don’t you see no good can come from this? So please, give up this battle you feel you need to wage with jill.

Mamie: Oh, so you think that if I put down my sword, that means that jill won’t swing hers at me? Oh, no, I will not be caught off guard.

Nate: Is there nothing I can say to convince you otherwise?

Mamie: I never back down from doing what’s best for my family.

Nate: But is it really–

Mamie: Look, jill abbott has had a stranglehold on chancellor-winters for far too long. It’s time that we take full control of our company. And I’m here to make sure that’s what happens.

Billy: She wanted a little room, huh?

Chance: No disrespect.

Billy: Hm.

[ Knocking on door ]

Amanda: Is this a bad time?

Billy: Just ironing out some work issues.

Chance: I’m still finding my way. It’s good to see you, amanda.

Amanda: Yeah, you too. It’s nothing serious, I hope.

Billy: No, no, I think we got it all figured out. What do you say?

Chance: Yeah, all good. Better get back to it. Hope I see you again while you’re here.

Amanda: Yeah, you too. Okay, now that he’s gone, you want to tell me what’s really going on?

for the latest trends,

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Abby: Hi.

Chance: Hey.

Abby: Uh-oh, I know that tone. What’s wrong?

Chance: Nothing.

Abby: Chance.

Chance: Just trying to learn how to manage working with billy abbott.

Amanda: That man is jill’s grandson. If you have a problem with him, you need to solve it now. He is on our side.

Billy: He’s new. He’s ambitious, he needs to know how the business world works, especially at this company. And you know what? Some lessons are harder to learn than others.

Amanda: Billy, he’s an adult, a cop, a war veteran. You really think he needs a lesson from you?

Billy: Yes, in business, I do. And you know what? You don’t have to treat him with kid gloves because of the history with devon and abby.

Amanda: “Kid gloves”? I am telling you that jill wants this team pulled together.

Billy: That’s what I’m trying to do, amanda.

Amanda: Really?

Billy: Yes, why does it seem like you don’t trust me?

Diane: Nikki and I will never be friends, given our history, which I admit, my actions had a great deal to do with.

Kyle: Your relationship has been contentious since you came back to town.

Diane: Yeah, I thought we’d reached sort of a détente since the wedding, but no, I will never be at the top of her besties list.

Kyle: So, are you unhappy that dad’s helping her?

Diane: Look, I understand stepping in to help an old friend who desperately needs you.

Kyle: But?

Diane: All right, maybe I’m being paranoid. I just worry about jack’s own battle with addiction.

Kyle: Oh, that problem was a long time ago. And that success is the type of insight and strength that’ll help nikki.

Diane: Well, I hope so, for both their sake.

Kyle: I have every faith in dad.

Diane: Me too. Jack abbott is as strong as they come. And while we’re waiting for him, why don’t we, uh– why don’t we go over the agenda for tomorrow’s marketing meeting?

Kyle: Sure.

Diane: Or, better yet, kyle, why don’t we continue our conversation from the other night?

Kyle: Oh, for some reason, I’d rather talk about tucker.

Diane: Now, when I pushed, you admitted that you’re finding it tougher than you thought to see me in the position that you always wanted. And that you’re struggling not to resent it?

Kyle: I spoke out of turn.

Diane: No, no, you didn’T. You were being honest, and that’s the way it should be between us. So, if you do resent me being co-ceo, how can we fix it?

[ Ashley sighs ]

Ashley: There must be another way, there has to be. Are you sure this is the best way to handle things?

[ Ashley sighs ] Yes. Oh, here comes the bread guy.

Jack: So, what did I miss?

Kyle: Sounded like you read tucker the riot act.

Jack: He’s a first-class egomaniac who can’t be trusted. I made it clear to him on no uncertain terms, he’s to keep his lies, his games, his poison away from ashley and our family.

Kyle: Dad, I know you want to be protective of the family, but why waste your time warning tucker? It’s like lighting a match.

Diane: I agree. Why antagonize him?

Jack: I almost hope it provokes him to cross the line. Then, we’ll have something to crucify him with.

[ Knocking on door ]

[ Audra sighs ]

[ Knocking on door ]

Audra: Coming!

Tucker: Hello to you too. Ah! Celebrating? I prefer you do it with me, however.

Audra: What are we celebrating?

Tucker: Start practicing your french, mon petit chou. We leave in three days.

Audra: I’ll drink to that.

Tucker: You bet you will.

Audra: To paris.

Tucker: To paris.

Audra: Paris can’t come fast enough for me.

Tucker: So, I woke up all by my lonesome. Where did you slip off to?

Audra: I just had some errands to run.

Tucker: To run, [Indistinct]. Uh, was one of those errands confronting ashley? I can’t wait to hear all about it.

Chance: You didn’t have to follow me here.

Abby: Hey, maybe I just wanted a cup of coffee. Okay, fine, I’m concerned. If you’re not happy–

Chance: No, it’s not that. I just… I guess, adjusting to chancellor-winters has been a little bit more difficult than I thought.

Abby: Well, it is a big jump from police work to the corporate world.

Chance: Yeah, I mean the work’s fine, but the politics and the people–

Abby: Are you talking about billy?

Chance: It’s been interesting.

Abby: And not in a good way.

Chance: Look, I don’t want to bore you with the details, really.

Abby: Look, as a future member of the chancellor-winters board, I want to know if there’s any issues.

Chance: Excuse me, what? You say chancellor-winters board member?

Abby: It’s pretty much a done deal, I’m just waiting for the vote.

Chance: Oh, my gosh. Wow, if I had known, I would have shut my mouth, and bought you coffee.

Abby: Hey, you can still buy me a cup of coffee, but don’t worry, I’m not taking notes or anything. I’m on your side. Look, you’re dom’s other dad. I want you to be happy, and if there’s anything I can do to help–

Chance: I appreciate it, but I’m fine, really. Okay, maybe “fine” is overstating it a bit. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but when I agreed to have billy as my mentor, I just didn’t realize the guy came with all this baggage.

Amanda: I do trust you.

Billy: You sure about that?

Amanda: Yes.

Billy: Because sometimes I think you only see me as a guy you hung out with at the end of class. Sharing a bourbon and playing some cards.

Amanda: That was a million years ago.

Billy: Yeah, it was.

Amanda: But I have complete faith in you, billy. And maybe you’re right. Maybe I have a soft spot for chance. Walking in together and seeing the two people that you love having sex on the sofa.

Billy: That’ll bond you for life?

Amanda: Mm-hmm.

[ Billy sighs ] I think I’m just a little confused. Jill told me you were mentoring him and things were going well.

Billy: She’s not wrong. They were, you know, but chance is one of those guys who wants success straight out of the gate. And he’s got a chip on his shoulder every time I criticize one of his ideas.

Amanda: Kind of sounds like devon and nate first time around. See, devon was way too harsh and nate took it as badly as possible.

Billy: And now devon has gone the complete other direction. Loving everything that comes out of chance’s mouth, and you know why he’s doing that? To make me look like a dream killer.

Amanda: Are you? (Ethan) I started smoking menthol cigarettes

Billy: No, okay, I’m not in the business of casually shooting down good ideas.

Amanda: Okay, so chance is not in the middle of a power struggle between you and devon.

Billy: Amanda, you too? Chance said the same thing.

Amanda: Well, is he right?

Billy: It was one idea, and it needs work, which I told him and I stand by, but all of a sudden, people think it’s a big deal.

Amanda: Well, maybe it’s because we’re all right, and you’re in denial.

Abby: Come on, chance. If you’re having issues with billy, I want to help.

Chance: I would much rather talk about you and this amazing move that you just made. What’s going to happen to society?

Abby: Well, I hired tessa to manage it so that way I can be in the office more. Hopefully.

Chance: Working with devon, that’s a perk.

Abby: Did you know that amanda sinclair was in town?

Chance: Yeah, yeah. I saw her.

Abby: Yeah, so did I. It was, um, uncomfortable, to say the least.

Chance: Yeah, well, um, I’m sure that’s going to take some time. Hell, I see devon every day. We make it work. You two belong together.

Abby: Thank you for saying that. You know, I don’t expect amanda to get there anytime soon.

Chance: Things change.

Abby: Yeah, they do. But you know, I always want the best for you, right?

Chance: Yeah, I know. And I’m happy to say that my life is moving in that direction.

Abby: Good. Yeah. You deserve all of that. And more.

Audra: How did you know I went to see ashley? Did she call you?

Tucker: No. I know because I know you. But I don’t know why you would do that. I thought you understood how I feel about you. Did I not make myself clear? Because if you’re feeling insecure at all, I will make myself clear again and again. Until you believe it. You’re the only one for me.

Audra: Don’t worry. I’m not feeling insecure. Not anymore.

[ Tucker clicks tongue ]

Tucker: Uh-oh. What did you do? Should I be worried?

Audra: Ashley’s still standing, if that’s what you’re asking. But you know, it felt good to face her. To let her know where I stand. Where you and I stand. Together.

Tucker: Yeah.

Audra: You know, and if she thinks she can try to come between us, she’s gonna have a situation on her hands.

Tucker: Mm-mm. Let’s let that be the end of it, shall we? There’s nothing to be gained from provoking her.

Audra: It wasn’t a provocation, tucker. It was a warning.

Jack: Hey, there you are. How you doing?

Ashley: I’m fine.

Jack: You sure?

Ashley: Yes, you have to believe that, jackie. You have to believe me. I’ve accepted what happened in paris and I’m moving on.

Jack: Well, you just seemed upset, a little confused.

Ashley: Yeah, I did. But now I’m not. In fact, things are finally going my way.

Jack: And what does that mean?

Ashley: That means that I’m excited about my future.

Jack: Uh, where are you going now?

Ashley: Uh, I have an idea that I’m kind of messing around with a little bit.

[ Laughing ] At my lab. You know, jabot.

Diane: Sounds promising.

Ashley: Yeah. Very. I’ll see you.

Diane: Bye. You see that, jack? That is a woman who sounds completely over tucker. She’s excited about the future, enthusiastic about her work. You’ve got to stop worrying. She’s going to be okay.

Tucker: Hello.

Ashley: Hi. Can we meet for a drink?
