Tucker: Hey gorgeous, I’m about to jump in the shower. Why don’t you join me, make it more interesting. I’ll make it worth your while. Marry me, audra. I love you. Give me your hand.

Audra: Uh, tucker, wait. I haven’t said yes. Are you sure you’re not trying to prove something to ashley or devon or perhaps the rest of the world? Or are you maybe just out to prove something to yourself?

Ashley: Hi.

Ashley: Geez, how many messages could one person leave? I love you, trace, but you’re a pain in the butt. No. No. No. No. Oh. I’ve got to find tucker and scare him off. It’s the only way to protect ashley before she takes back control and does something stupid. Hi, hi. Uh, can I please get a ginger ale? Wait, um… I’m gonna have a martini.

Summer: Oh, there you are.

Chance: I’m so sorry I’m late.

Summer: Rough day at the office?

Chance: Um, yeah. Yeah, it got pretty tense.

Summer: Seems to be kind of the norm at chancellor-winters lately. Do you wanna talk about it, or do you wanna slide straight into ordering some drinks?

Chance: Well, as good as that sounds, I think there’s something that we might need to discuss first.

Claire: Oh, how adorable is this place? I can hardly believe this is happening. I have a home. A real home with my mom and actual siblings that I can’t wait to meet. Next thing you know, I’ll be asking for a puppy. Are you all right?

Victoria: Yeah. Yes, of course.

Claire: Ah. I think I know the perfect place for this. It’s beautiful when it blooms.

Victoria: I’m pleased that you’re so happy.

Claire: This is my dream, but it isn’t yours, is it?

Victor: Sweetheart, are you okay?

Nikki: Yes, I’m fine.

Victor: Baby, don’t lie to me. I know what’s going on. (Vo) at dog chow

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by… my blood pressure is borderline.

Victor: The vodka. Larry told me that someone at the bar society sent over a drink to you.

Nikki: Yes, it– it was terrifying.

Victor: Well, tell me about it.

Nikki: I was with jack, and some man sent a glass of vodka over to me, and then he left the restaurant.

Victor: Anyone recognize the sob?

Nikki: The staff had never seen him before. And larry was looking for jordan, not a man. Jack tried to track the guy down, whoever he was, but he didn’t have any luck. But I am convinced that jordan was behind it.

Victor: Uh-huh. Let me ask you something. If– if larry hadn’t told me about this, would you have? I mean, sweetheart, you and I agreed to be open with each other. All right? I have to know what’s going on. Don’t you agree?

Nikki: I just don’t wanna be a burden.

Victor: What do you mean, you don’t wanna be a burden? Since when have you been a burden to me? Your happiness, your well-being is all that matters to me. I don’t want you to go out alone anymore, dear. I mean– anyway, I’m gonna double security, okay?

Nikki: What good would that do? I mean, we already know that jordan has at least one other person working with her. I– it’s like she’s everywhere, watching and waiting. How much longer are we supposed to go on like this? It– it has to stop.

Victor: It will end.

Nikki: What do you mean?

Victor: Right now, because you and I will go on a vacation. There’ll be a plan.

Nikki: No, victor. I won’t go.

Summer: Daniel, I can’t believe that you got fired. I– I hope that you’re okay. Call me when you get this. I just– I can’t believe that lily would fire him. I mean, yes, getting back together with heather while lily was out of town, daniel could have handled that situation a bit better, but lily’s always been so level-headed. For her to retaliate like this, firing them both, it just feels unfair.

Chance: I agree, and the issue is bigger than just that. I mean, the repercussions are gonna be felt throughout the whole company. Your brother is omega sphere. I mean, I have a feeling chancellor-winters is gonna take a serious hit without him.

Summer: Are you sorry you left the police force now?

Chance: No, but I am sorry that I have taken up so much of this beautiful evening talking shop. So, I’m done now. Let the date begin.

Summer: Okay, that’s not how it works.

Chance: What do you mean?

Summer: Chance, you don’t have to be on with me. Date with summer, it’s not another thing to check off your to-do list. This is where you get to actually be yourself and relax. Although I am sensing your stress level is still pretty high.

Chance: Yeah, you could say that.

Summer: You know, I think I know how to ease a lot of that tension, actually.

Chance: You’re not gonna throw me on a roller coaster, are you?

Summer: Oh, you did say you wanted a rain check for that, but no, I think I have an even better idea. Follow me.

Chance: Okay.

Tucker: Yo, miss charles, this water ain’t getting any wetter. Better get in there.

[ Ashley grunts ]

Ashley: So gross! Why would anybody drink that?

Audra: Oh, just what I need.

Ashley: Hey! Hi.

Audra: Excuse me?

Ashley: I need to talk to tucker. It’s really important.

Audra: Are you for real?

Ashley: Yeah.

Audra: You know, you are unbelievable.

Ashley: I just need to talk to tucker, okay? I just– that’s all.

Audra: “That’s all?” Yeah, what’s it gonna take for you to finally get the message that tucker is done with you? Utter and complete public humiliation? Because that can be easily arranged.

You’re the one that I want

Ashley: No, I don’t want anybody to be humiliated.

Audra: Too bad you’re doing that all by yourself.

Ashley: I’m not who you think I am.

Audra: I’m pretty sure i know who you are.

Ashley: No. I said I really have to find tucker. I need to warn him.

Audra: Warn him about what? Me? That’s a laugh. No, you’re the only threat here, and– and you’re making a fool of yourself.

Ashley: No, it’s not me. Listen to me, please. It’s not me, it’s her. She’s pretending that she loves him, but she doesn’T. She wants to hurt him. I mean, like, she wants to hurt him really, really bad. She thinks it’s the only way to protect ashley, but she’s wrong.

Audra: Okay, but you’re ashley. So– so who is she? What– what are you even talking about?

Ashley: I’m trying to tell you. I need to find tucker. It’s very, very important. I just need to talk to him.

Audra: Oh, my god. Tucker was right. You– you are losing your mind.

Ashley: That is so not cool of you to say to me right now. You have no idea what she’s planning.

Audra: Ashley?

Ashley: Ash, stop right now. Not another word or I will shut you down. No.

Audra: No what? Wh– what’s happening? You know, you’re really freaking me out if that’s your plan.

Ashley: You have to promise me. Please promise me that you’re gonna keep him away from her.

Audra: Who is her? Ashley.

Victoria: You know, I want you to know something. This is my dream.

[ Exhales ] There’s nothing that I want more than to– to build a home with you. Under one roof, our– our own roof, not camping out at my parents’ place.

Claire: Oh, the main house wasn’t exactly camping.

[ Victoria laughs ]

Victoria: Yeah, you’re right about that.

Claire: So, you’re okay?

Victoria: Yes.

Claire: You just– you seem not quite here.

Victoria: Well– well it’s just that being here, I can’t help but think of the home that I lost. There’s just been so much going on and we’ve been so busy. I really haven’t had it. The chance for it to sink in until now.

Claire: I’m so sorry, I wasn’t thinking.

Victoria: No, please don’t– don’t apologize. I just need some time to process all of it and I will. But to know that that home that I loved for all of those years, where I raised my children and I built so many memories there. And it’s just gone now. It’s ashes.

[ Victoria sighs ] My kids will never get to see where they took their first steps again. Where they said their first words. And, you know, I’ve been really worried about how hard it would be for them to– to lose the only home that they’ve ever known. But I guess… I guess I just didn’t realize that it would be really hard for me as well.

Claire: I can’t even imagine what you’ve lost. But if it’s not too much, I– I’d love to hear about your beautiful home.

Victor: What do you mean we don’t go on our vacation? That’s long overdue.

Nikki: Well, I was talking to jack about it. If we leave town, jordan wins.

Victor: I don’t give a damn what jack abbott says or thinks, all right? It’s none of his damn business.

Nikki: No, this is all me. We stay. I will not let that woman declare victory.

Victor: Sweetheart, when you live your life, that’s the best revenge.

Nikki: Well, there’s another reason that we should stay in town.

Victor: What?

Nikki: Victoria has already voiced her concern about this. Without me to focus on, jordan might go after claire, and I would never be able to forgive myself, and I know you wouldn’t either.

Victor: Victoria and claire are safe in the tack house.

Nikki: You can’t confine them to the property. And I– I don’t want to put their safety at risk, so I have come up with a plan.

Victor: Oh, yeah? What’s your plan?

Nikki: We will throw an anniversary party that is so spectacular, when jordan hears about it, she won’t be able to help herself. She will try to sneak in and wreak havoc, but we will have so much security there, she will be outnumbered.

Victor: I don’t like it. Okay? I will not have that psychopath ruin our celebration.

Nikki: Well, she’s already done a hell of a job destroying our lives. Wouldn’t it be worth it to finally stop her? There it is…

Chance: I like the way you think.

Summer: I thought that you would.

Chance: Come here.

Summer: Take your shirt off.

Chance: Excuse me?

Summer: I’m gonna give you a massage.

Chance: Oh! Don’t have to tell me twice.

Summer: Yes, yes, yes.

Chance: Yeah, you can button out there.

Summer: There you go.

Chance: One more for good luck.

Summer: Okay, on the bed.

Chance: Yes, ma’am. Oh! Oh, yeah. Wow. Oh! No way.

[ Summer laughs ] Oh, yeah. Mm. You are too good to me.

Summer: Oh, this feels good to me, too.

[ Chance laughs ] I like shutting out the world with you.

Chance: You know what? I like shutting out the world with you, too. Although I think we need a little reciprocation here, yeah?

Summer: I don’t need a massage.

Summer: Oh, I had some other things in mind, actually.

Summer: Oh, yeah? Like what?

Chance: Yeah, baby. Yeah. Over there. Over there. How’s it doing for you?

Summer: Hmm.

Victor: Trust me, I will get her. And there will be justice.

Nikki: Does that mean that you have a plan?

Victor: Let me just say that there are several options, all right? You just told me that I need to be open and honest with you. That goes both ways.

Victor: Uh-huh.

Nikki: But this whole mess is my fault.

Victor: Come on, now. No, don’t make excuses for me. It was a mistake, and this is my way to make amends.

Victor: There’s no need. I’m on it.

Nikki: Victor, try to understand. I wanna take my life back. I– I wanna be in control of my sobriety. And maybe there’s a part of me that wants to know that I’m not anybody’s victim. So I wanna be a part of bringing jordan down for good. Here’s how I see it. We won’t even know that she has infiltrated the party until she’s apprehended. So while she is in custody, we will be celebrating our life and love with our family and friends.

Audra: Ashley, I don’t wanna argue with you about this or anything else, because none of what you said made any sense. You know, if it’s for show, to make tucker or me pity you, that would be one thing. You know, but if this is for real–

Ashley: My god, you like to talk, don’t you? Let me tell you what happened. I had a couple of these bad boys, and I forgot to eat. No big deal.

Audra: Are you on meds? Is this some kind of interaction?

Ashley: No, I’m not on meds. No, like I said, it went right to my head.

Audra: You know, you weren’t being yourself, and I’m not sure who you are now.

Ashley: You know me so well.

Audra: Well, I know that that wasn’t normal, and now you’re back to being a complete–

[ Sighs ] You know what? This is none of my business.

Ashley: You are really blowing this out of proportion.

Audra: You know, you should go home and talk to your family.

Ashley: Okay, audra, that’s exactly what I’m gonna do. In the meantime, can we keep this silly little conversation to ourselves?

Audra: You don’t want tucker to know, for whatever reason. Honestly, I just wanna be done with this conversation, so–

Tucker: Hey. What’s going on? I would’ve called yesterday.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Victoria: The minute that billy and I saw the house, well, we knew we had to have it. It was– [ Sighs ] It was straight out of father knows best. You’re probably too young to even know about that show.

Claire: Happy family hijinks?

Victoria: Yeah, something like that, yeah. But anyway, it was just this cozy, old-fashioned house. In one of those neighborhoods where you could borrow sugar from the neighbor. Or I could have if I had done anything more than bake chocolate chip cookies for the kids, and burn them multiple times.

Claire: Well, I really wish I’d been there for that.

Victoria: You wanna know what the funny thing is? I’ve already pictured you there with us, and what that would have been like. Game time around the coffee table with johnnie and katie when they got home from boarding school. Not to mention the holidays. Handing out candy to trick-or-treaters at halloween, and christmas, oh, christmas. I mean, the tree. The way that it looked right there in that big window. It was beautiful. And you would have hung your stocking right next to everyone else’s, our family. Truly together.

Claire: It would have been perfect. Would you consider rebuilding?

Victoria: No. No. It just wouldn’t be the same, you know? The notches on the door and the kitchen where we used to measure the kids’ height as they got taller. And all of the kids’ posters and art projects and all the trophies.

[ Sniffles ] And all of the silly stuff that we would leave on the refrigerator. That is what makes a house a home.

[ Sobbing ] And it’s gone now.

Claire: I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry that this isn’t the way that you planned for us to live together, and I’m sorry that it’s just– it’s another thing that jordan has taken from you, from– from us.

Victoria: Listen to me. I don’t want you to think about her anymore or talk about her anymore. She doesn’t deserve that. You’re here now with your family and that’s all that matters. All right. [ Sniffles ] And now, for the first order of business… welcome home.

[ Claire chuckles ]

Claire: I know it’s just a key but… thank you.

Victoria: And for the second order of business, you need to pick which room you want.

Claire: Really? Any one I want?

Victoria: Absolutely. You’re the oldest. You’re here now. You have first dibs.

Claire: Okay then. I suppose you’d be the one with the bookshelves.

Victoria: Are those the books that I gave you at the hospital?

Claire: My most treasured possessions.

Victoria: I’m actually starting to feel like home already.

Victor: Sweetheart, the reason for this party is for you to focus on something other than that jordan woman. I wanna celebrate us. It was 40 years ago that we expressed our love for each other.

Nikki: Well, we have been on and off, so 40 years is a bit misleading.

Victor: I don’t give a damn with off and on. I’ve loved you all these years. You’ve always in my heart.

Nikki: You’re such a romantic. You always have been. If you really wanna go big, let’s do this. We will bring jordan down. What could be a better tribute than that to our love?

Audra: You were right, tucker. Something is definitely off. The things she said made no sense.

[ Ashley laughing ]

Ashley: You’re really a drama queen, aren’t you? Okay, I had a martini with no food.

Audra: Okay, and now you’re stone cold sober? You know, maybe you are faking it. Maybe this is part of her sick game or something.

Tucker: What’s going on, ashley?

Ashley: Honestly, your girlfriend here is blowing everything out of proportion.

Audra: That’s what you wanna call it?

Ashley: Well, I think this is you taking a silly conversation that we had, and twisting it so you can mark your territory. I really don’t know.

Tucker: Have you seen anyone? Have you talked to anyone yet, as we discussed?

Ashley: Oh, baby, so adorable how you worry about me. Starting to make me think that I should worry about you.

[ Tucker chuckles ] When my doctor gave me breztri for my copd

Tucker: That’s no answer.

Ashley: Well, I can see there’s no point in trying to have a conversation with either one of you. I will take my leave. Audra, do the world a favor. Get a sense of humor.

Audra: Gr– mm. Wow, that was–

Tucker: She rattled you?

Audra: She wishes. You know, but the thing she said, you know, for a moment, I was afraid for her. And for you.

Tucker: Talk to me. Tell me everything.

Chance: Thank you for closing out the world with me. You know, I’m the worst. I didn’t ask you about how your day was.

Summer: Oh, my day. My day was pretty low-key. I worked from the abbott house for a couple hours to keep an eye on harrison. Kyle and I are kind of tag-teaming it until we find a full-time nanny situation.

Chance: Well, it’s good that you two are working together. And keep things civil.

Summer: Yeah, like you and abby, right? I mean, things aren’t always amazing, but we can come together for harrison’s best interests.

Chance: Yeah, abby and I, we got the co-parenting thing down, but the nanny duty?

[ Exhales ] I cannot imagine having to work with dominic in my office. You know, I told you he decided to be a drummer, right? Very dedicated to his craft, too.

Summer: Ooh, that would be distracting.

Chance: You know, the real distraction is sometimes I just watch him play with whatever. You know, he’s so sweet.

Summer: You’re such a good daddy.

Chance: Papa. Devon’s daddy.

Summer: Right, you all have this down.

Chance: Yeah, yeah. I do love every second with that little dude, though.

Summer: Hmm. Sometimes it makes me sad that I missed out on harrison’s younger years. But I know I just gotta enjoy all the time that I have with him now before he decides he’s too old to call me mommy.

Chance: Ooh, it’s gonna be a tough day.

Summer: It really will be.

Chance: Until then, you still need a nanny.

Summer: Yes, I do. But unfortunately, the only person harrison has responded to is not safe to be around for anyone.

Nikki: I know you’re concerned about my safety and the family’s safety, but security is on it. And we already know how jordan operates, so we will be ready for her, and it will finally be over.

Victor: So this is what you really want?

Nikki: It really is.

Victor: Then we’re gonna make it work.

Nikki: Why do I have the feeling that you already have something planned?

Victor: Let me put it this way. If we’re gonna pull this off, then I’m gonna have to make a few phone calls.

Nikki: Is that a yes?

[ Victor exhales ]

Victor: Are you sure about this, baby? Because once we start this, there’s no going back.

Nikki: The only thing I’m more sure of is how much I love you.

Victor: Then… let’s have a party to end all parties. Okay? In more ways than one.

[ Nikki chuckles ] Chin up, sweetheart.

Nikki: Thank you.

Victor: See you later.

Nikki: Okay.

Victoria: Mom, are you here?

Nikki: I’m right here, darling, I’m in here.

Victoria: Hi.

Nikki: Hey.

[ Victoria sighs ] How are you settling in at the tack house?

Victoria: Ah, it’s going to be amazing. [ Laughs ]

Nikki: Well, if you need anything, let me know.

Victoria: No, no, no. Not when you should be packing for your romantic getaway. Are you going somewhere tropical, I’m guessing?

Nikki: Um, about that, there’s been a change of plans.

Victoria: But you were so looking forward to it.

Nikki: And your father and i are going to take a trip eventually. But right now, we just wanted to focus on the party.

Victoria: It’s gonna be your first newman party as a newman. Do you think you’re ready for it?

Claire: I can’t wait. If there’s anything I can do to help, I’d love to pitch in.

Nikki: Oh, thank you. I’ll keep that in mind.

Victoria: Well, 40 years is definitely something to celebrate, but are you sure having some big extravaganza is a good idea? I mean, there’s gonna be a lot of people and a lot going on. It could be a magnet for jordan. I mean, if she is still around. Do you really think we should take that chance, mom?

Nikki: All I know is that victor and I aren’t going to let her have power over us anymore. And we can celebrate that as well.

Victoria: What if she didn’t get on a train? What if she finds a way to sneak into the party?

Nikki: To be honest, that’s exactly what I hope she does. Diabetes can serve up a lot of questions, like…

Chance: I know you’ve got your doubts about your cousin claire, but the rest of the newman clan has accepted her, yeah?

Summer: Hmm, more or less.

Chance: And she’s staying at the ranch?

Summer: Yes, she is.

Chance: Well, if victor newman of all people doesn’t think she’s a threat, I tend to go with that.

Summer: How can I look at her and not see the person who was all in on helping to kill my dad, my– my grandparents, my aunt?

Chance: I know. Didn’t she say she was brainwashed by someone?

Summer: Yes, but is that really an excuse? And even so, I mean, how do we know that she’s actually cured?

Chance: It’s possible.

Summer: Possible, yes. But the fact is, she could still be a threat to my family. That’s enough for me to not trust her around my son.

[ Chance sighs ] Ugh, unless she is totally and completely sane suddenly, and I’m the one that’s being a jerk.

Chance: You know, I’m sensing that you’re the one who’s stressing now. How about I take you downstairs and we get a round of those drinks we never ordered?

Summer: Hmm, I think that that is a great idea. Last thing I wanna do right now is think about my cousin claire.

Victoria: Mom, this is how you and dad wanna celebrate your 40th anniversary together? By setting another trap for jordan?

Nikki: I can’t think of a better way.

Victoria: Well, I hope you’re beginning to see now that the newman family is not exactly a normal family.

Claire: No, but they are smart, and strong, and put family first, which makes me even more thrilled and proud to be a part of it all.

Victoria: Well, claire and i are going to head to the jazz lounge. I wanna show it to her. It’ll be her first time. Would you like to join us?

Nikki: You’re going to love it. The man it honors was a very special friend of ours.

Victoria: Yeah. So are you in?

Nikki: Yes, I think an evening at the jazz lounge is perfect for all of us. Just what we need.

Victor: I think that’s a wonderful idea. Why don’t you take cole along?

Victoria: Sure. Um, we’re gonna head back to the tack house, and we’ll change her, and we’ll meet you back here.

Victor: Great. Sweetheart, I’m gonna make a phone call. I’ll be right there.

Nikki: All right.

Audra: You know, I tried to avoid ashley, but she called me over, and she was acting like, I don’t– she was frantic, you know, and the things that she was saying, that she’s out to get you, I couldn’t make sense of it.

Tucker: “She” meaning ashley is out to get me?

Audra: Unless she was talking about someone else. She kept talking about herself in the third person. You know, that she kept telling me to keep you away from her, that she was gonna hurt you.

Tucker: Hurt me how?

Audra: I have no idea. Anything could have been going on up there. And– and then you show up, and she pulls it together, and claims that she was just drinking too much, that she was just messing with me.

Tucker: She might have been.

Audra: Oh, come on. You don’t believe that any more than I do.

[ Door opens ]

Ashley: This has got to stop. I’ve got to get that kid in line before she ruins everything. [ Exhales slowly ] Wake up! Wake up! [ Grunting ] We have to get something straight, you little brat!
