[ Alarm ringing ]

Christine: No way. What?

Danny: You’ve got to be kidding me.

Christine: Wait, do you think it’s just a false alarm? We can ignore it?

Danny: As much as I want to stay here, I want to make sure that we have a long life together.

Christine: Yeah, good. Give me my, yeah. Switch.

Danny: Yeah, my shirt.

Christine: Oh, my gosh, I can’t believe it.

Danny: Come on, come on.

Christine: Okay.

Danny: Let’s go. You got it?

Christine: Yeah. Okay.

Danny: Come.

Audra: Hey, any chance you want company?

Sally: Audra, hi. Um, I am waiting for adam, but you’re more than welcome to join me ’til he gets here.

Audra: Uh, I don’t want to intrude.

Sally: No, no, not at all. Really, you’re saving me from reading this annoying article about a wildly successful design firm that is not mine.

Audra: Hm. Feel free to vent. I could use someone to vent to in return.

Sally: Yeah, I was actually gonna ask if things were in a better place with tucker since we spoke, but it sounds like not so much.

Audra: Well, I wish I could say they were. You know, I tried to take your advice, to fight for the relationship. But as much as it kills me to say it, I don’t think it’s worth saving.

Tucker: Hey, ashley, it’s me again. Uh, I assume you’re getting these messages. So, first you tell me that all is forgiven. That you want to pick up where we left off, run glissade together, reboot our relationship. And then hours later, you text me, what was it, forget everything? And now, you’re not returning my calls, so now you don’t ever want to see me again? Is that it? Anyway, if something is up with you, I would like to meet. In person, please. Please call me back, or text me. Let me know when and where. Thanks.

[ Ashley laughing ]

Jack: Hey, ash. What are you watching? Ash?

[ Ashley laughing ]

Ashley: Hi. How you doing?

Jack: Uh, I’m doing fine.

Ashley: I’m binge watching. I’m on season three.

Jack: I didn’t realize you had that much free time.

Ashley: Yeah, well, keeps me out of trouble, right? Did you want to talk to me? About business or something? Because I can pause this.

Jack: Actually, yes. I would like to know what is going on. The virus that causes shingles is sleeping…

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Ashley: Nothing’s going on.

Jack: You’re binge watching a sitcom in our living room.

Ashley: So?

Jack: It’s not like you.

Ashley: Who says?

Jack: Well, billy, for one. He said he ran into you at society and you weren’t yourself at all. I’m just wondering what’s going on?

Ashley: I just wasn’t feeling very good, so I decided to come home and chill. I find it relaxing. I mean, you should try it sometime. It’s a lot cheaper than all that booze you drink. And what’s wrong with everybody? And what is the big deal? Traci had to shove it down my throat that I was wrong about what happened in paris, billy doesn’t think I’m, acting like myself. And you have a problem with how I spend my free time. What do you all want from me, anyway?

Sally: I don’t want to tell you how to feel, but how is love not worth saving?

Audra: When maybe it just feels like love, but it’s actually stupidity.

Sally: Okay, I don’t obviously know you or tucker very well, but you seemed pretty adamant last time we spoke about your feelings for him and that you guys had a unique connection.

Audra: Yeah, but you know what? Unique doesn’t always mean healthy.

Sally: True. Yeah. But, I mean, it doesn’t always mean easy either. I mean, if I’ve told you how many times adam and I have been through rough times.

Audra: But has he ever used you in some sick love triangle?

Sally: Adam and I have had some romantic complications, um, but no, not like that. Is that what tucker’s doing to you?

Audra: You know, he– he swears he adores me, that I’m the one, but he just can’t seem to let go of ashley. And for all his declarations that she’s no threat, she is there every time I turn around.

Sally: Meaning that she’s the one showing up and in his face.

Audra: And in mine.

Sally: Yeah, that’s not good.

Audra: Yeah, I tried giving him ultimatums. Either cut her off or I’m gone. Now, he’s come up with the most outrageous excuse to justify staying in her life.

Sally: Oh, god, I’m dying to hear what that could be.

Audra: He’s claiming that she has some legitimate psychological issue. And that her decision to pursue him again is just a desperate cry for help.

Sally: Seriously? Because ashley abbott seems like one of the most confident and stable people in this town.

Audra: No, of course she is. So she’s either faking it to win him back or he’s just made up this excuse to stay in her life. Either way, I can’t keep putting myself through this. I am done with tucker. And this time, I mean it.

[ Alarm ringing ]

Phyllis: Oh, hey guys! This is crazy, right? I was just getting, you know, a cup of coffee and some oj and then this happened. You know? Wow, look at you. You look unkempt, christine. What’s going– what’s going on? Oh, oh my goodness. Were you guys in the middle of a little… oh, that’s tough. You must be really frustrated.

Danny: Yeah, it looks like everybody’s coming back inside.

Christine: Yeah, it must have been a false alarm. If we had taken a little longer to get dressed, we could have stayed upstairs in the comfort of our room.

Phyllis: Oh, well, better safe than sorry, right?

Christine: Your concern is touching.

Phyllis: Just looking out for my pals, that’s all.

Christine: Wait, hold on. Are you bleeding?

Phyllis: No.

Christine: Wait, let me see your finger.

Phyllis: Just a hang nail. And what are you, a manicurist?

Christine: Hey, I’m just curious how you managed to wound yourself having a glass of orange juice. You know, I wonder if somebody pulled that alarm on purpose.

If you’re taking

an antidepressant,

Phyllis: What? Oh, god. Who would do such a thing?

Christine: Yeah, let’s think about that. Someone who would pull a fire alarm under false pretenses is obviously deeply disturbed and doesn’t care about diverting emergency crews away from an actual emergency.

Phyllis: Okay, okay, maybe the batteries were dead or it malfunctioned in some way.

Danny: You want to go with that?

Christine: Or maybe some poor, insecure woman yanked the alarm, hurt her finger.

Phyllis: Are you kidding me? What are you insinuating right now?

Christine: Only that it was you.

Phyllis: Are you gonna let her talk to me like this?

Danny: I just hope you’re as innocent as you’re acting right now.

Phyllis: This is absolutely outrageous! What motive would I possibly have?

Christine: Uh, jealousy. You knew we were upstairs and you couldn’t stand the thought of danny and I being together.

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness! The only reason I knew you were upstairs doing something is because you came down here all half-naked and disheveled?

Christine: I saw you earlier. You were taunting me about how sad and lonely I must be because danny rejected me.

Phyllis: I was truly concerned for you. Concerned. And you did contradict me.

Christine: Yeah, because I actually felt sorry for you. I did. And then you just went on and on about how you were gonna go see danny at his concert when he’s already invited me to go with him.

Phyllis: Oh, that’s a lie. She’s lying.

Danny: No, she’s not lying.

Christine: You followed me upstairs. You probably listened at the door, didn’t you? And when you knew we were together, it drove you crazy.

Phyllis: The only crazy thing here is that he would be interested in someone like you.

Ashley: I went through a really hard time with tucker and– and I’m really sorry if– if– if me watching a sitcom is just not cool for you.

Jack: No, wait. You have every right to do whatever you need to get your mind off of tucker mccall. I just think this is a somewhat erratic way.

Ashley: I’m just trying to figure it out. I don’t like this. I don’t like this at all. I think I need a vacay.

Jack: A vacay… actually, maybe that’s a great idea. You and traci can go off to some warm, sunny beach.

Ashley: No, I want to get away from my family. I want a vacation from all of you. You’re not strong enough for this, ash. And you’re not helping. You’re raising suspicion. Let go. Hand it over to me.

Tucker: Hey. Hey, audra, wait a minute. Really? You were just gonna–

Audra: What do you want?

Tucker: Well, you never answered me about glissade.

Audra: Hmm, funny. I thought I made myself crystal clear. Where’s the confusion?

Tucker: Hey, what’s going on with ashley has nothing to do with what I feel for you or what I know you feel for me.

Audra: Yeah, because you know so much.

Tucker: About you? About us? Damn right, I do. And anyway, we’ve got a company to run, don’t we? We shouldn’t let this personal stuff get in the way of that.

Audra: We’re not gonna work this out, tucker. So, how can we possibly work together?

Tucker: We’ve never had any problem finding our way back to each other in the past?

Audra: You just don’t get it. I’m angry, okay? I feel used, okay? And I’m done fighting for you. And ashley’s latest sick seduction attempt.

Tucker: That’s my point, audra. I think she’s sick. Really sick. She’s not–

Audra: Oh, my god. She is playing you. She’s not some fragile flower having a mental collapse. And quite frankly, I wouldn’t give a damn if she was. You know what my problem is? Even if she does need help, the fact that you want to be the one to save her, okay? Not her friends, not her family. It has to be you. That’s not healthy for me. So, to answer your question, I’m out. Romantically, professionally, completely. Is that clear enough for you? Oh… stuffed up again?

Tucker: It’s so real what we have. It’s as good as it gets. And what’s going on with ashley… I have to help her. I owe her that. Do you understand?

Audra: Well, knock yourself out. Just know that it comes at a price. Me.

Tucker: Well, I mean, but she… I care about her.

Audra: Yeah.

Tucker: I care about her, and I always will. But I am not in love with her. Don’t you still care about noah?

Audra: What?

Tucker: Yes. Don’t you still care about noah? And will you ever stop caring about noah? Did you expect me to just– no, listen to me. Did you expect me to just stop having any feelings whatsoever toward ashley? She has been a big part of my life for a long time, audra. And I’m going to do whatever I need to do to help her now. She needs my help right now. And then, I swear to you, I will do whatever it takes. I will spend every waking hour trying to fix us. But in the meantime, don’t– don’t abandon yourself. Don’t throw away your career because of all this.

Audra: You really think I can’t succeed without you?

Tucker: I know you can succeed without me. Look how much work we’ve put into this company. We’ve got the press release announcing your role. We’ve got all these meetings scheduled all over europe.

Audra: Yeah, that got postponed because of ashley.

Tucker: Yeah. Okay. I just hope that you’ll take a second and think about it and think what you might be missing. I think you’re missing a big opportunity here.

Audra: You know, even if this is a mistake, I just don’t care anymore. It’s not the first one I’ve made and it won’t be the last. But you know, I think this is one of the smartest moves I’ve ever made. To extricate myself from you.

Tucker: Hey, now, hold on.

Audra: Don’t touch me!

Nate: You heard the lady.

Adam: Hi.

Sally: Hi. Welcome back. How did your follow-up session go with the ocd specialist?

Adam: Uh, not great. Connor hated being there. And I can’t say that I loved it either.

Sally: Is it the doctor? Does he not connect with her?

Adam: No, it’s not that. It’s, um, everything else. The diagnosis, the treatment options, the feelings that he’s struggling with. I mean, he begged us to come back home. And we brought him back home. But I don’t think it’s gonna be for long if chelsea and dr. Alcott get their way. I mean, you should’ve heard him. He said that he hates himself.

Sally: You know what? Let’s not do this here, okay? Let’s go someplace more private where we can talk. Okay.

Traci: Hey. Did– did I hear ashley in here?

Jack: Yeah, she just stormed out of here.

Traci: Uh-oh. What did you say, jack?

Jack: I have no idea. When I walked in, she was watching a sitcom on her tablet, laughing like a teenager.

Traci: Well, good. That’s– that’s better than the prickly attitude she’s had around here lately.

Jack: No. No, this was very strange. When have you known our sister to binge watch anything? Unless it’s a documentary.

Traci: Jack, I write romance novels. Thank god people need escapism. And she’s had a really stressful time.

Jack: No, I get that. This was different. It wasn’t what she was watching. It was her whole demeanor. It was– she just seemed unhinged.

Traci: You’re really worried?

Jack: Yes. So was billy. He had a similar experience at society. He said she was not herself.

Traci: Oh. You know how concerned I was when we were in paris together, but since we’ve been home, she promises she’s put the entire episode and tucker mccall behind her. But maybe she did that for my benefit. Maybe she’s covering and this has hit her harder than even I realized.

Jack: Yeah, I know. It was very hard. She first thought he was gaslighting her, and then–

Traci: And then, she had to come to terms with the fact that he was right. That she had exaggerated events. And not by just a little bit. She’d blown things up into a violent exchange.

Jack: Couldn’t have been easy for her to admit that. To herself or to tucker.

Traci: Yeah, and it sounds like it’s taken its toll. For her to have misread reality like–

Ashley: And the psychoanalyzing continues, doesn’t it? For the love of god, please just make it stop. (Vo) you might be used to living with your albuterol asthma

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Ashley: I’m fine. Tucker has not reduced me to an emotional mess. I have put all of that behind me, and isn’t that exactly what you wanted me to do?

Jack: Yes, it is.

Ashley: So, why are the two of you harping on this? Because frankly, you talk about tucker a lot more than I do.

Traci: Ashley, we would be thrilled if you were over tucker and all the damage he’s done.

Ashley: Great, so be thrilled. We can celebrate! The mystery of paris has been solved. I was wrong. Now, I’d love to move on with my life, but I can’t, because the two of you are constantly whispering about me behind my back. “Ashley’s watching a sitcom. Oh no, maybe we should have her committed?”

Jack: That is not how I would characterize our earlier encounter. You have to admit, you are acting strangely.

Ashley: It has to stop. I do not need or want you to be watching me like a hawk for any kind of weakness.

Traci: Ashley, I’m sorry if you think that we’re hovering or you feel cornered, but you can’t blame us to be protective of you.

Ashley: I can blame you, and I do. I am solid, and I want to move on with my life. So back the hell off and let me!

Jack: Ashley, listen. I give up. I have tried to reach out to her, to talk to her. She insists on doing this her way. Maybe it’s time we let go.

Traci: No, no, no, no. I– I don’t know, but I think that would be a big mistake.

Sally: What did the doctor say?

Adam: She wants him to go to a, um, residential treatment center. There’s only a few in the country, and I guess one of the best ones is on the east coast.

Sally: Okay. I mean, that’s a big step.

Adam: It’s– it’s a huge step.

Sally: But maybe that’s what he needs. You know, uh, going to a place that specializes in this where he can get focused help.

Adam: In theory, sure, but connor wants nothing to do with it. I mean, he begged me not to make him go to this.

Sally: Yeah, I mean, I can see how it would be scary. Did he say anything specific about what upsets him?

Adam: Oh, he just said that he has trouble getting used to new places.

Sally: But he got used to the school. I thought he liked it there.

Adam: Yeah, we– we thought that, but it seems that it was harder than we realized. There was things that he never told us, or there was things that we didn’t pick up on.

Sally: You did say that he changed his dorm room.

Adam: Yeah. And then he admitted the real reason that he did it is because the numbers scared him, his room number. He has good and– and bad numbers.

Sally: I don’t understand.

Adam: Some numbers scare him. His room number was 23, and he had to change it because two and three add up to five.

Sally: So he’s constantly calculating, making sure the numbers don’t cause trouble?

Adam: I can’t even tell you because I don’t even entirely understand.

Sally: Man, that must be exhausting for him. I had no idea he was struggling with these kind of thoughts.

Adam: Yeah, well, none of us did.

Sally: Well, maybe a facility can help then.

Adam: I was reading up on it this morning, and they do something called exposure and response prevention. They make you face your obsessions. They literally trigger your anxiety. And they give you support. It’s in a controlled environment. But then they coach you not to respond with your compulsive behaviors.

Sally: Well, it sounds like they have worked out a program that’s proven to help. That’s promising.

Adam: Yeah, I mean, if it works.

[ Adam sighs ] What– what if this just triggers all of his fears? And it makes it worse?

Christine: Well, you know, pulling a fire alarm is a felony, and you still are on probation. I bet if we checked that alarm, there would be traces of your blood or fingerprints.

Phyllis: Oh. Ooh. Good thing you’re not the da anymore.

Christine: You’re right, I’m not, but I could still file a report as a concerned citizen.

Phyllis: Oh, you’d do anything to get rid of me, wouldn’t you?

Christine: I just think the world would be a much safer place with you behind bars.

Danny: Okay, okay, enough, all right? Nobody’s calling the cops. Hey, you know what? This ends right here. I sure as hell hope that cricket’s theory’s wrong. But either way, you have got to let this fixation go with us, with me. All right, you’ve got to move on phyllis, you hear me? It’s over. Okay? Come on, let’s go back upstairs.

Christine: Hm, that’s a great idea.

Tucker: Nate, please mind your own business.

Nate: Please stop harassing my friend.

Tucker: There’s no harassment going on here, man, we’re having a private conversation.

Audra: Okay, yeah, and we are done talking. Buy me a cup of coffee?

Nate: It’d be my pleasure. Y’all wayfair makes it so easy

President biden: U.S. Coast guard units were stationed nearby , thank god. Representatives from the federal highway administration, the fbi, department of transportation and army core of engineers were all working together to coordinate an emergency response. Officials at the scene estimate eight people were unaccounted for still, that number might change. And the search and rescue operations continue for all of those remaining as we speak. I spoke with the governor as well as the mayor of baltimore, the united states senators and congressmen and our department of transportation secretary is on the scene. We will send all resources as we respond to the emergency and rebuild that port together. Everything so far indicates that this was a terrible accident. At this time, we have no other indication or reason to believe there was any intentional act. The personnel on board the ship were able to alert the maryland apartment of transportation that they lost control of their vessel, as you all know, as a result, local authorities were able to close the bridge for traffic before the bridge was struck, undoubtedly saving lives lives. All of the families, especially those waiting for the news of their loved ones right now — i know every minute in this circumstance feels like a lifetime. We just don’t know, it’s terrible. We are incredibly grateful for the rescuers and the people of baltimore, we are with you, we will stay with you as long as it takes. Like the governor said, you are maryland tough, baltimore strong, we will get through this together. I promise we are not leaving. Here’s what’s happening now, the search and rescue operation are our top priority. Ship traffic in the port of baltimore has bee until further notice. We will need to clear the channel before ship traffic can resume. The army corps of engineers is on the spot and will clear the channel. The port of baltimore is one of the nation’s largest shipping hubs. I’ve been there a number of times that senator and vice president and it handles a record amount of cargo. It’s also the top port in america for both imports and exports for automobiles and light trucks. Around 850,000 vehicles go through that port every single year. We will get up and running as soon as possible. 15,000 jobs depend on that port. We will do everything we can to protect those jobs and help those workers. The bridge is also critical for travel. Not just for baltimore but for the northeast corridor. Over 30,000 vehicles cross the fancis scott key bridge on a daily basis. It’s one of the most important elements for the economy in the northeast and the quality of life. My transportation secretary is there now. As i told governor moore, we will move heaven and earth to rebuild the bridge as soon as humanly possible. We will work hand-in-hand with the support of maryland to support maryland, whatever they ask for. We will work with our partners in congress to make sure the state gets the support it needs. It’s my intention that federal government will pay for the entire cost of reconstructing that bridge. I expect congress to support my effort. This will tke some time. People of baltimore can count on us to stick with them every step of the way until the port is reopen and the bridge is rebuilt. You know, we are not leaving until this job gets done. We are not leaving until then. I want to say god bless everybody, everyone harmed this morning and their families. May god bless the first responders, many of whom risked their lives. The reason I’m not going to take a lot of questions, there are remaining issues that are open and we have to determine what’s going to happen in terms of the rescue mission.

Reporter: Do you plan to go to baltimore, sir?

President biden: As quickly

Reporter: This was a ship that appeared to be at fault. Should they be held responsible?

President biden: We are going to pay for it and get the bridge rebuilt and open. We are not going to wait for that.

Reporter: What about not attending the meeting this week?

President biden: We will have plenty of time to talk about —

[Reporters asking questions]

The francis scott key bridge in baltimore over the patapsco river, importantly, the president said this is a terrible accident no other explanation other than that. And that they will pay for the rebuilding of the bridge and not wait for blame to be assessed on either party, the shipping company or any other factor. I want to bring in former national transportation safety board chairman — share with the audience what they are doing at this stage and with the next couple of weeks and months will look like.

They will be leading this investigation with the assistance of the U.S. Coast guard, the ntsb is already gathering a lot of information. There are several things that will help the investigation. One, survivors, getting a firsthand account of what was going on in that ship. And a voyage data recorder, it’ll explain many parameters with what was going on with that ship come at the machine room, rudder, steering gear, and videos of the bridge — the ship’s bridge. There’s a lot of information that will help the ntsb and coast guard put this all together.

Robert, in terms of the potential of an accident of this magnitude, is this something that either the ntsb, army corps of engineers, department of transportation, imagined could happen with so much vessel traffic going through a waterway like this? Or is this something that is not planned for or anticipated in any way, shape, or form? Rico I think the response we saw today I think the response we saw today isn’t good indication that the communities are prepared for mass casualty events. There is an amount of planning that goes on behind the scenes.

On the scene in baltimore, nicole, for the audience’s benefit, what are the infrastructure challenges and potential economic impact on the baltimore economy and northeastern economy reference by the president?

Absolutely, this is really a hub of the northeast. And he vowed that the federal government is going to pay everything a penny for this recovery, telling the press that we are going to rebuild it together, citing that the army corps of engineers was here to clear out the port of baltimore. You heard the president say there are 30,000 vehicles a day that cross the francis scott key bridge here. In 2023, there were 52.3 million tons of cargo that were carried through the port of baltimore, amounting to about $80 bilion. A tremendous amount we are hearing from law enforcement officials and the governor, the mayor saying that yes, we know this is a key commerce hub. The focus today is on rescue and recovery. We have to rebuild and figure out how to get the port up and running again.

Our thanks to robert and nicole. Our coverage will continue on “cbs news” streaming, your local news, and of course tonight on the “cbs evening news.” This has been a cbs news special report.

Christine: I love you too.

Jack: I don’t know what more we can do for her. I can’t even ask her how she’s doing without getting some kind of lecture or a tantrum.

Traci: Jack, we can’t give up on family.

Jack: I tried everything in me to stop her from falling in with that man again and she ignored me. Now, she ignores my every effort to try to help her now that he’s broken her heart again. And have I once said, I told you so?

Traci: Jack, maybe not in so many words. And maybe this explains the prickly attitude she’s had around here lately. Because the judgment is there. It’s just right below the surface. Jack, she’s deeply humiliated.

Jack: The woman that just gave us a dressing down was not humiliated. She was absolutely sure of herself, insisting that she’s fine. Maybe we ought to listen to her.

Traci: I don’t know what the answer is, but I am not letting this go. I watched her closely. And you’re right, there is something off. Now, every instinct I have is screaming that this is bigger than some push-pull obsession she may have with tucker.

Ashley: So, we’re back to that, are we? You think I need psychological help? That is so patronizing. I don’t need a therapist.

Tucker: What’s the big deal? What are you afraid you might learn?

Ashley: For your information, I saw somebody when I was in paris. A psychologist friend of mine. I bared my soul.

Tucker: And?

Ashley: He says I’m as perfectly normal as the next person. No issues whatsoever. So there.

Tucker: And what if your memory of this chat you had with your therapist friend in paris is as crystal clear as the fight we had in paris?

Ashley: Ah, really? Please, we’ve been over this. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. What happened in that cafe was a very isolated circumstance, and I’ve apologized, and I thought we moved on.

Tucker: Perfect, then what do you have to lose? If you’re okay, then prove it. You can throw it right back in my face. But see someone. See someone unbiased. Here, in genoa city.

Ashley: Yeah, I’m happy with my friend’s analysis.

Tucker: Right, your friend, who– who probably told you exactly what you wanted to hear.

Ashley: Who I trust to tell me if something was wrong with me.

Tucker: All right, you can do this now, or you can do it later, but I’m not gonna give up until you’ve seen someone.
