Phyllis: Do you want this risotto? So good, here.

Daniel: I’ll take your word for it, thank you.

Phyllis: All right, so tell me what lily said. Don’t leave out details.

Daniel: Well, first, I, um, I tried to reason with her.

Phyllis: Oh, I bet that went over well.

Daniel: I’m sorry, did you want me to tell you, or did you want to, yeah?

Phyllis: No, no, tell me.

Daniel: Yeah?

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Daniel: Um, I told her that I understood that technically, omegasphere was owned by chancellor-winters.

Phyllis: You didn’t even have to give her that much. Carry on.

Daniel: Then I told her that I thought it would only be fair if she let me take back princess louisa and a few of the other games that I, you know, designed and developed.

Phyllis: And let me guess, she didn’t budge.

Daniel: Nope, not an inch. So then, I told her that I would be filing a lawsuit to get it all back.

Phyllis: Wow, daniel, good for you. You stood your ground, you didn’t waffle.

Daniel: It’s just sad. Sad that this is what it’s come to.

Phyllis: Yeah, it’s sad for lily. You stood your ground, you followed your heart, and I support you 100%.

Daniel: Thank you. No, really, thank you, I appreciate that. So does heather. Um, but fair warning, things are probably gonna get pretty ugly between me and chancellor-winters when this all shakes out, so seeing as you still work in the division that I’m no longer a part of, um, some of that fallout might fall on you.

Christine: So, where are lucy and daniel?

Danny: Lucy is at a sleepover, daniel is out for the evening, which means we have the entire place to ourselves. And tomorrow is the big day.

Christine: Yes, it is.

Danny: Which is why I wanna prove to you, come right this way, that this tour is not gonna be all work, so I have created an itinerary.

Christine: Danny, I–

Danny: What?

Christine: I just wanted to talk to you about something first.

Danny: Yeah, no, of course, of course, great. No, we’ll talk, but first, let me show you the list. Take a look at this. Look, I don’t mean to brag, but I could have been a travel agent if the whole music business thing hadn’t panned out. Here, come on, look at this. All the stops on the tour, all the great sites, all the great restaurants. I wanna share everything with you. It’s gonna be so awesome.

Christine: Daniel, just hold on one second.

Danny: Okay. What’s up?

Christine: I just hate the thought of letting you down.

Nick: Okay.

Victor: Have you heard anything about jordan?

Nick: I’ve been talking with security all night. There’s been no sign of her. Maybe she really did get on that train out of town.

Victor: I don’t believe that for a minute.

Jack: So, how are you doing?

Nikki: Well, it’s been quite the night.

Jack: Yes, it has. That’s not what I meant. I know this is a dry party.

Nikki: I’m holding up.

Jack: Good. It was a great celebration of you and victor, but just know, sometimes even an alcohol-free party is a tough place for someone in recovery. I’m very proud of you.

Nikki: Don’t be too proud.

Jack: What does that mean?

Nikki: The party may be alcohol-free, but… I’m afraid I’m not.

Kyle: You have a good time tonight, bud?

Harrison: But they didn’t have cake.

Kyle: Well, maybe next time.

Harrison: Do you think they liked my present?

Kyle: Great-grandma and grandpa? Are you kidding? They loved it. Nikki said she put it in a place of honor, right?

Harrison: Yeah.

Kyle: Well, I’m guessing aunt traci and aunt ashley went up to bed, which means it’s time for pj’s and brushing teeth. So, if you go fast, we’ll have time for a book. Is that a deal?

Harrison: Sounds good, dad.

Kyle: Cool.

Harrison: Wait.

Kyle: What is it?

Harrison: My lucky charm. It’s gone.

Kyle: Are you sure?

Harrison: I had it in my pocket.

Kyle: Okay. Okay, well, um… huh, maybe it fell out somewhere. We can look for it in the morning.

Harrison: No, we can’T. I need to find it now. I won’t be able to sleep without it, dad. I have to find it, please!

Claire: Good night, larry. For people who feel limited What? You expect me toth my brilliant son. But if for sure go there, becaus

Daniel: I’m not saying that lily would for sure go there, because you are brilliant at what you do, but there is the chance that your position could be a casualty–

Phyllis: So what? So what?

Daniel: I thought you loved that job.

Phyllis: I did, but only because I was working with my brilliant son. But if you’re not there, what’s the point?

Daniel: The point would be to continue to make a living, which you need to do.

Phyllis: I can get a job anywhere.

Daniel: Mom.

Phyllis: No, don’t mom me. What? You expect me to keep on working there with lily and devon looking over my shoulder all the time? And me knowing that they unceremoniously fired you for some childish reason? You’re the best thing to ever happen to that company, by the way. You know what? I should go in today and quit in solidarity. In fact, I should get your entire team to walk out. Omegasphere is amazing, and it’s yours, and what better way to prove it?

Danny: Why– why are you apologizing? I– I’m confused. I’m sorry.

Christine: Okay. Um, yesterday, out of the blue, I got a call from an old colleague who told me about this huge case where the accused is specifically asking me to represent them.

Danny: Okay.

Christine: Normally, I would just– I would explain that my practice is being suspended, but I’ve known this person for a really long time and they’re in a bind.

Danny: Um, how much time are we– we talking about?

Christine: Months.

[ Danny sighing ]

Danny: So, okay. So, what you’re saying is you won’t be able to go on the road with me.

Christine: No, I’m just saying, like, I’m really torn because there’s this part of me that wants to shut my laptop down and turn off my phone and take off. I have been so looking forward to this adventure with you, and I still am.

Danny: What about the other part?

Christine: The other part is I’m an attorney, and when a once-in-a-lifetime case comes up, I can’t help but being pulled back in. But danny, what you and I have, it’s also a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing. So, what do you do when– when two things collide?

Nikki: The other day, after jordan’s cohort sent me that drink, I really freaked out and I immediately went to buy a bottle of vodka.

Jack: Why didn’t you call me first?

Nikki: I know. I should have, but I didn’t think I would be able to get through tonight without it. So, I convinced myself that I could moderate how much I drank until after the party, but I really needed it because I was certain that jordan was gonna show up and try something.

Jack: Wait, wait, back up. Why would you say that?

Nikki: Part of the reason for this party was to lure her out of hiding.

Jack: Wait, this was victor’s idea?

Nikki: No, it was mine. Jack, I– I– I am just sick of running. I am tired of looking behind my shoulder, waiting for something terrible to happen. So, I thought I would use this event as a way to bring her out in the open, but I guess I was wrong because she didn’t show, at least she hasn’t yet.

Jack: So, you have been fortifying yourself all night long with alcohol in the hopes that this psychopath would catch up with you and find you?

Nikki: That was the plan.

Jack: It’s a bad plan.

Nikki: I realize that now, but in the midst of everything, something amazing happened.

Kyle: Okay, I’ve checked outside, we’ve checked in the car, but bunny isn’t there.

Harrison: His name is lucky-bun now. I was so stupid to lose him.

Kyle: No, no, no, no, no, don’t think that. You know what I think?

Harrison: What?

Kyle: I think maybe we left it at the table we were sitting at. Do you remember taking it out of your pocket when we were there?

Harrison: Maybe.

Kyle: Well, I bet you an ice cream sundae it’s sitting right there safe and sound.

Harrison: Can we go back and get him?

Kyle: I’ve got a better idea. I’ll call mom and get her to bring him over.

Harrison: Right now?

Kyle: Right now. Now, go upstairs and get ready for bed. I’ll be up in a minute, okay?

Summer: Excuse me.

Nick: I mean, do you still get the phone calls?

[ Phone ringing ]

Summer: Hey, is everything okay?

Kyle: We think harrison left his lucky bunny charm at the table we were sitting at. Do you think you could take a look and see if you can find it?

Summer: Oh my gosh, yes. Um, here, hold on, I will look. I don’t see it anywhere.

Kyle: Damn, he’s so upset. I hope the waitstaff didn’t toss it.

[ Doorbell ringing ] Um, someone’s at the door. I’ll check back with you in a bit.

Summer: Okay, bye.

Claire: Missing someone? (Vo) it’s shrimp your way. Stay there and, oh, to see you lose your job

Daniel: Listen, I appreciate your loyalty, but I don’t want to see you lose your job over this.

Phyllis: Oh, you act like it’s the only job in the world.

Daniel: You have to work. That’s a fact.

Phyllis: What do you expect me to do? Stay there and, oh, tiptoe around lily and devon? Little– little office mouse? After I know they sold my son’s life’s work? I’d rather live on the street.

Daniel: Oh, you’re just gonna quit?

Phyllis: I haven’t figured out my next move, actually. Don’t worry. I’m not someone who just waits for something to fall in their lap. I go and get my opportunities.

Daniel: Ooh, there it is. That’s that tone. Ha ha, I know that tone. That’s the one that sets alarms off in my head. You’re already cooking something up, aren’t you?

Phyllis: Not necessarily.

Daniel: Don’t “not necessarily me.” I know that look. What kind of opportunities are you talking about?

[ Phone pinging ]

Adam: I’m sorry.

Sally: No, don’t apologize.

Adam: I don’t know why I would be expecting to hear from connor at this hour. It’s just reflex, I guess, or wishful thinking.

Sally: Look, I know this is hard, but maybe in this case, no news is a good thing.

Adam: Um, I wish that I could believe that.

Sally: Think of it this way. The clinic hasn’t called you to come pick up connor and bring him home, you know? So maybe they’re making progress and the therapy is working.

Adam: Oh, god, I hope so.

Sally: You’re gonna make yourself sick with worry. What can I do? Please tell me how I can make this easier for you.

Kyle: Oh, you are the hero of the hour. Harrison will be so relieved to see that, thank you.

Claire: Oh, it was no big deal. I just happened to see lucky-bun sitting there.

Kyle: Right, yes, his new name. But you didn’t have to bring it all the way over. You could’ve called and i would’ve picked it up in the morning.

Claire: And risked the bad luck jinx?

Kyle: You got me there. Clearly, I have never had a lucky charm.

Claire: Well, they’re very important things, you know. A friend, a protector, something to count on, no matter what. I know it sounds childish, but–

Kyle: No, no, not at all. What were you about to say?

Claire: I know how important it is to harrison and I didn’t want my new little friend to go even a single night without it. I know when I got my lucky charm taken away, I… I didn’t sleep for a week.

Kyle: Wait, wait a minute. You said you lost it.

Claire: I lied.

Jack: Amazing is a pretty big word.

Nikki: Well, that’s what it felt like.

Jack: Tell me more about what happened.

Nikki: Well, I had my flask in my purse and whenever I would feel anxious, I would slip away and take a shot.

Jack: You didn’t seem tipsy, you didn’t seem drunk. I’m pretty good at recognizing those signs.

Nikki: That’s because I was able to stop. That’s the amazing part of being here tonight with all of my friends and family, knowing how much they support me. I was able to fight the urge to keep drinking. I didn’t want to let down the people who care about me, particularly you.

Jack: No, more importantly, you didn’t want to let yourself down.

Nikki: I felt strong. For the first time, I feel like I can beat this thing. It was like somebody opened a curtain and let the light back in. I didn’t need the alcohol. I had love all around me and I felt free.

Jack: Wow.

Victor: Everything all right?

Nikki: Everything is more

Nikki: Everything is more than just all right, darling. It’s been a wonderful evening.

Jack: I was just telling nikki how proud I was that she faced down her urge to drink tonight.

Victor: Is that right?

Nikki: Well, yes. I– I had it at first, but then it passed.

Jack: And kudos to you for having an alcohol-free party like this. Very thoughtful and I think it helped.

Victor: Thank you, jack. I’m very proud of my wife.

Jack: Well, thank you both. A lovely evening.

Victor: Same to you.

Phyllis: I don’t want to talk about me, let’s talk about you. I’m more interested in what your plans are.

Daniel: You’re changing the subject.

Phyllis: So, if you win the lawsuit, will you take your games and create another company?

Daniel: I don’t know. I haven’t thought that far ahead. I’m just trying to take it one day at a time.

Phyllis: It’s exhausting, isn’t it?

Daniel: Yes, talking to you is exhausting.

Phyllis: No, smart guy, not talking to me. Standing up for what you believe in. You’re just trying to save your family. And I understand that. You shouldn’t have to pay for that.

Daniel: Mom, I don’t–

Phyllis: I mean, I know that it’s embarrassing for lily, I get it. I understand, but it’s not like the two of you were a great love story.

Daniel: Mom.

Phyllis: You and heather, on the other hand, you are a great love story. You’re trying to raise your daughter together. I mean, you shouldn’t have to pay for that.

Daniel: Mom.

Phyllis: Don’t “mom” me.

Daniel: Could we please talk about something else?

Phyllis: Okay. What do you want to talk about?

Daniel: You and dad? I mean, you were spending a lot of time talking about your friendship and how, you know, that was a sign of bigger things to come and then nothing.

Phyllis: Okay, well, there’s nothing to tell. Um, we took a step back and we realized the timing wasn’t right and we would not pursue things.

Daniel: Or maybe you finally had to admit to yourself that romance was never really on the table.

Danny: I can’t choose for you, cricket. As much as I’d like to, because I would probably make the selfish choice, but this is your career and I’m not gonna do anything to stand in your way.

Christine: Yeah, I don’t even know if I want this career anymore.

Danny: Would it really be a debate if you weren’t really missing the action here?

Christine: I think it’s about being wanted, you know? That feeling when someone says, “you’re the answer. You’re the only one who can do this.” So, when I got that call…

Danny: Hey, I get it, okay? I really do. I mean, I get this feeling whenever we book a tour or sell out a venue. I can’t judge you for wanting that same sense of satisfaction.

Christine: But you give me that feeling too. That feeling of being wanted and it’s not about my skills or my education. It’s about me and I want you and it’s not about your singing or your image. It just, it feels right when we’re together.

Danny: Because it is right. I’m not gonna hold you back. I mean, we both love what we do and that makes us probably the luckiest people I know and… well, I mean, this case isn’t gonna last forever and neither is my tour, so.

Christine: I know, I know. I can’t help feeling that this is our last best chance. That we found each other again because it was meant to be. So… how can I walk away from that?

Claire: I lied about my lucky charm because I didn’t want harrison to hear the real story.

Kyle: Right, not for kid’s ears. Got it. Well, I appreciate you trying to protect harrison, but I’m old enough to hear the real story, if you feel like sharing.

Claire: My aunt jordan always had to have control over everything. Back then, I didn’t realize that was partly because I was a stolen baby and she had constructed my entire life as one big lie. I was just a kid and I just wanted to do kid things. So, one day I was playing in the backyard and I found a stone laying in the grass. The white– looked like a crystal. I don’t know if it really was one, but I knew it was special to me, at least.

Kyle: Your lucky charm.

Claire: I hid it from jordan because I knew she wouldn’t want me to have something like that to count on. And when I was alone, I talked to it. I wished on it. I wished for friends and a real family. A happy life. And then one day, she caught me doing that. She snatched it away. And she told me that wishing was for fools, that I couldn’t count on luck, I could only count on her.

Kyle: Wow. I am so sorry to hear that, claire. That must have been awful for you.

Claire: It was just my life. It’s getting late. I should go.

Kyle: No, no. Please, stay.

If you’re taking

an antidepressant,

Announcer: The youngpatio seasonis all about saving.

Phyllis: You know, hey, hey, why’d you bring up your dad to me again? When you’re just gonna shoot down the idea?

Daniel: Because I know that it meant something to you. Being around him and, you know, feeling that support that dad is so good at. And, you know, let’s be honest, like a– a– a danny romalotti friendship, that’s like a stamp of approval. He doesn’t really hang out with people that suck.

Phyllis: I beg to differ.

Daniel: I bet you would. Listen, all I’m saying is if you wanna talk, I’m here to listen.

Phyllis: Thank you, I don’t wanna talk.

Daniel: Fine.

Phyllis: Okay, I moved on, by the way.

Daniel: Great.

Phyllis: Okay, is that a sarcastic great or a real great?

Daniel: No, that is– that is me dropping the subject, even though I know you’re hurt by this.

Phyllis: Okay, because it seems to me that you wanna say I told you so.

Daniel: I’m not gonna do that, no.

Phyllis: Okay, but I need to remind you that I’m the one who predicted you and heather and I never once said I told you so or asked for applause.

Daniel: Wow, well, you got me there. You were right, I was wrong. Let’s have dessert.

Phyllis: Okay. And I just wanna bring up for the last time, danny and the bug, they’re together. They’re– he made his choice. It’s, like, the most ridiculous choice, but he made it nonetheless, right? And– and I’m moving on. I’m not gonna let it slow me down, that’s for sure.

Danny: I have an idea.

Christine: Please, anything.

Danny: Don’t make any decisions right now. Just think about it, sleep on it, okay? And we’ll decide tomorrow morning, all right?

Christine: You really think that’s gonna make it easier?

Danny: Cricket, look at me. Hey. If this is gonna be our last night for a while, let’s enjoy every single second we have together, okay?

Sally: Look at them. After all the drama and conflict victor creates, to see the depth of love he still has for nikki after all these years is… really inspiring.

Adam: Well, the newmans do love hard and profoundly.

Sally: Good to know. Do you wanna go upstairs?

Adam: Come on.

Claire: This is all still so new to me. Being able to have adult conversation, just be a person without jordan monitoring me or judging my every move.

Kyle: I don’t know how you survived her.

Claire: I didn’t know any better. I, uh, my whole life, from the time I was little, just revolved around her needs and her grudges, her need for vengeance. And I went along with it because I was afraid of what would happen if I didn’T. Guess I’ve been afraid my whole life.

Kyle: You don’t have to be afraid anymore. You have friends, you have a family, you have a new life.

Claire: I know. And I get to make all these choices all by myself. Can be kind of overwhelming sometimes, but every day, I get a little bit more used to finally being free.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Harrison: Oh, hi claire.

Claire: Hey, harrison.

Kyle: Guess what? Look at what your new friend, claire, brought you.

Harrison: You found him! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Did you know… I’m thinking more liat a trick question?

Adam: So, I have a question now.

Sally: What?

Adam: Where do you see yourself in 40 years?

Sally: Well, that is a trick question.

Adam: How is that a trick question?

Sally: Because you’re angling to see if you’re still in the picture.

Adam: Well.

Sally: I hope so.

Adam: Well, I personally think that we could do 40 years together, easy. I’m thinking more like 50, 60.

Sally: That’s pretty ambitious.

Adam: I mean it.

[ Sally sighing ]

Sally: Really?

Adam: I don’t want it to end. I never want it to end.

Nick: How did you get past security?

Phyllis: Oh, my gosh, are you gonna give me a hard time too?

Nick: No, but the guards aren’t supposed to let anyone in who isn’t on the guest list. It doesn’t matter who they are.

Phyllis: Okay, okay, sorry. Jeez. They were very good at their job, by the way. I got past the gauntlet and then, you know, someone recognized who I was and they said I can come in. I didn’t know there was a party. Obviously, I wasn’t invited.

Nick: Summer didn’t tell you that it’s my parents’ 40th anniversary?

Phyllis: Mm-mm. Congratulations to your parents. That’s incredible, 40 years. Well, obviously summer didn’t want to remind me that I’m still persona non grata, so that’s why she didn’t tell me.

Nick: Yeah, that’s not like you.

Phyllis: What’s not like me?

Nick: Feeling sorry for yourself.

Phyllis: I’m not feeling sorry for myself.

Nick: You sure about that?

Phyllis: Yeah.

Nick: You’re not fishing for like a supportive compliment?

Phyllis: No. I mean, but if you want to give me a supportive compliment, I’ll take it.

Claire: Hey harrison, did you know that there are all different kinds of lucky charms?

Harrison: Really?

Claire: Yeah, if you find a penny on the street and you pick it up, it’s a lucky penny. Or if you look really hard in the backyard, you might find a four-leaf clover. Those are really good luck.

Harrison: I’ll have to look for one of those tomorrow.

Kyle: Mm-hmm, you got it.

Claire: Of course, in india, they believe that elephants are good luck. But it might be kind of hard to fit one of those in your pocket.

[ All laughing ]

Kyle: Okay, harrison, time to go up. You’ve had a big day and you need the shut eye.

Harrison: You said I could get a book. Can claire read it to me?

Claire: I couldn’t step on your dad’s toes like that.

Kyle: No, I think it’s a great idea.

Claire: You do?

Kyle: You two go upstairs. I’ll be up to say goodnight later.

Harrison: Thanks, dad.

Kyle: Mm-hmm.

[ Phone ringing ]

Summer: Kyle, hi.

Kyle: Hey.

Summer: Sorry, I still haven’t found it.

Kyle: It’s okay, problem solved. Claire found the bunny and brought it over.

Summer: And how– how did claire come to find it?

Kyle: She didn’t say, but I’m relieved. And so is our son.

Summer: Wait, is claire still there?

Kyle: Yeah, she’s upstairs reading harrison’s story.

Harrison: Do you know this one?

Claire: Let me see. This is one of my favorites.

Harrison: I have to go to the bathroom, but I’ll be right back.

Claire: Okay.

[ Claire screaming ] I would’ve called yesterday.

[ Indistinct chatting ]

Summer: Mom.

Phyllis: My goodness.

Summer: Hi.

Phyllis: Hey, oh, look at you. Surprised to see me here too. Listen, I told your father that you probably didn’t tell me about the party because you wanted to save me the embarrassment of knowing I wasn’t invited. Is that true?

Summer: Well, I didn’t know I was supposed to tell you. It’s kind of a newman thing.

Nick: She’s probably just worried you were gonna try and crash.

Phyllis: Listen, I was having a hard time for a while, but then I pulled myself out of that. You know? You both should know that things are about to bust wide open for me at chancellor-winters.

Nick: Phyllis, what are you up to?

Phyllis: You’ll know when the dust settles, but just know that, uh, I have big plans.

Summer: Be careful, mom.

Phyllis: Baby, you know I’m always careful.

Christine: I’m so happy.

Danny: So am I.

Christine: So, why can’t i just enjoy what we have and let the rest go? What is wrong with me?

Danny: Nothing is wrong with you, my love. You just have to make a decision, that’s all.

Christine: Oh, god, what if my decision keeps us apart?

Danny: No. That’s impossible. Listen. It took us this long to find each other, didn’t it? And in my book, it’s exactly as you said. You and I… cricket and danny are meant to be. So, whatever decision you make, it’s gonna be the right one.

Christine: I’m just–

Danny: Sh. Sh. It’s okay, it’s okay.

Michael: Victor, nikki, we are leaving, which means your party is officially over. Come here.

Nikki: Thank you so much for coming.

Michael: Oh, congratulations.

Lauren: So nice to see you. Happy, healthy years ahead.

Michael: Victor, congratulations.

Victor: Thanks, michael. Nice to see you.

Michael: All right.

Victor: Thank you for coming.

Michael: Take care.

Lauren: Bye bye.

Victor: Appreciate it. Thank you.

Nick: All right, party’s winding down, so I’m gonna take off too. Security is not gonna leave until everyone’s gone. The follow-up car is all set up for whenever you guys wanna leave.

Victor: No sign of jordan?

Nick: None.

Victor: Oh, okay. Anyway, son, thank you for making this a special evening for your mother and your father, okay?

Nick: Well, you two deserve it. I love you both. I’m just sorry that it had to come with, you know.

Victor: I know.

Nick: All right, good night, dad.

Victor: Good night, son. Yep.

Nick: Love you, mom.

Nikki: Love you too. Good night, son. Well, I was wrong. I thought jordan wouldn’t be able to resist this.

Victor: Well, at least she didn’t spoil anything. But I promise you one thing. I’m gonna catch her.

Nikki: I know. But it’s hard not to think that she’s still somewhere out there coming up with new ways to torment us.

Victor: And I don’t want you to think about that at all. This is an evening for the two of us. Just the two of us. I love you.

Nikki: I love you. Thank you so much.

Kyle: The abbott house. 603 glenwood. No, this is kyle abbott. Look, you need to send someone here right away.

Jack: Hey, hey, hey, what’s wrong?

Kyle: It’s claire. I think she’s taken harrison.

Diane: What?
