Daniel: Oh! Uh-oh. I’d, uh, say hello, but, uh, are we allowed to even have a conversation without our lawyers present?

Abby: You know, that’s funny, but there’s probably a little bit of truth to that, too.

Daniel: Yeah. We’ve known each other forever, huh?

Abby: Yeah.

Daniel: Who would’ve thought that the two of us would wind up on opposite sides of a lawsuit?

Abby: Mm.

Daniel: And I hope you know that I don’t hold any of this against you. I mean, how could I? We’ve always had each other’s back. I just– I’ve been trying to figure out if anybody else on the board voted against this little lawsuit. You know, I– I don’t know how billy would have voted. I can’t be sure what jill was thinking.

Abby: Daniel, I, um…

Daniel: Oh, you know what? I– I’m sorry. I’m not trying to put you on the spot. I’m not gonna try and get inside information out of you. Unless this is maybe one of those little safe gray areas. No, look, I– I’ll be honest. Knowing that someone over at chancellor-winters is on my side, that– that means a lot.

Abby: You know, daniel, you’re right. We have been friends for a long time. And I can’t lie to you.

Audra: What makes you so optimistic that your relationship with devon will be repaired if you do him this favor?

Tucker: I’m not completely, but it seems like the door has been cracked a little.

Audra: But don’t you think it’s strangely out of character for devon to make a deal like that? And all you would have to do is get billy out of chancellor-winters. Devon’s been so adamant about keeping you out of his life, and suddenly, there’s an opening.

Tucker: Yeah. He didn’t go so far as to actually broker the deal with me, but…

Audra: Okay. Now, the truth comes out. You could help devon with billy and wind up getting nothing. Tucker, no. Please.

Tucker: Remember, audra, I am a master at risk analysis.

Audra: Did devon ever actually ask for your help?

Tucker: He is clearly at odds with billy. So much so that he’s willing to do something underhanded to get him out. In which case he’s come to the right guy, ’cause obviously my specialty is underhanded.

Devon: So, if we pull this off, we can stop billy’s sudden rise to power, but we have to do it fast before he causes any damage.

Nate: Sounds good. Count me in.

Devon: Lily, I know you’re a lot closer to jill.

Lily: No, I’m in. I have been very loyal to jill, and this is a complete betrayal, so we have to respond accordingly.

Nate: You do realize she’s going to explode when we do this, right?

Devon: I don’t care. She dropped a bomb on us, and we’re gonna return the favor.

Daniel: Okay, so you can’t lie to me, I can’t lie to you. Yeah, that’s kind of how a friendship works. You’re talking about something specific though, aren’t you?

Abby: It’s about chancellor-winters.

Daniel: Right, I figured.

Abby: Look, I can’t tell you what happened in the board meeting except for one thing, and I thought that you should hear it from me.

Daniel: Okay.

Abby: When the board voted to settle the lawsuit with you or fight it in court, I voted to fight.

Daniel: Oh. To fight me?

Abby: Oh, uh… to fight for chancellor-winters’ intellectual property, not to fight you per se.

Daniel: Not me per se, that– that’s good. Thank you. So, some of the board members wanted to settle. I mean, they were willing to offer some kind of deal to make this whole thing go away. And if that deal was good enough, and I was willing to take it, then I could be getting on with my life instead of gearing up to go to court?

Abby: Look, like I said, I can’t talk about what happened in the meeting. I just– I didn’t want there to be any misunderstandings.

Daniel: Well, that’s– that’s good. Yeah, we wouldn’t want any misunderstandings, you know. You wouldn’t want me doing anything stupid like thanking you for having my back.

Abby: Daniel, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt you. I– I had to put my personal feelings aside.

Daniel: Even after years of friendship? All of that, to just put it aside?

Abby: I had to do what was best for the company.

Daniel: Yeah, I keep hearing that, had to do what’s best for the company. God knows they’d never survive without my games, right?

Abby: Well, that’s why I was put on the board.

Daniel: Devon put you on the board, right?

Abby: For my own merits.

Daniel: Maybe he put you there to vote exactly the way he wanted you to vote. You know, to– to hell with morality and years of friendship, or what’s decent.

Abby: Actually, everyone voted to put me on the board, so I could help support chancellor-winter’s financial stability and their status in the marketplace. How devon feels, it doesn’t enter my mind when I vote.

Daniel: Yeah, but how could you think that it was right to vote against me?

Abby: Look, I have to get back to the office. If you would like to discuss this further, just let me know.

Audra: Well, I can’t argue with that. You can absolutely do underhanded with the best of them. But do you honestly think devon will respond well to you getting blackmail material on billy or whatever else you’re planning?

Tucker: Yes, I do. He desperately needs my help, whether he wants to admit it or not.

Audra: Well, I don’t like to see you let down. You deserve better. But I also don’t wanna argue about this because I have exciting news to share.

Tucker: I guess you do. What is it?

Audra: I managed to move our flight up. So, since we are packed and ready to go, we can leave for the airport now. You can deal with this whole billy situation when you’re back.

Tucker: Yeah, audra, I think when we’re back, it’s gonna be too late for the billy situation, so if you could just let me handle this right now, I’ll be yours. All yours, after.

Audra: Now. Are you serious? You’re canceling our trip? Again?

Phyllis: Ah, oh, no. No, blegh. No, mm-hmm.

Daniel: Not a fan of what you were listening to?

Phyllis: Oh, ah, I am not. I was just having a great morning, and then I was listening to some music, and– and a song of your dad’s came on. Ow, my ears. Not a fan. Ow, not a fan at all.

Nate: Looks like everything’s all set. I hope this goes off without a hitch.

Abby: Hi. I’m here, what’s going on?

Devon: Hey.

Abby: Hi.

Devon: How you doing? Listen, I’m sorry to spring this on you right now, but we didn’t have time to waste, and we had to call for a board meeting.

Abby: Wait, a board meeting?

Devon: Yeah.

Abby: But billy’s not here. He’s out visiting other offices, according to the email he sent out.

Devon: I know. That’s the point.

Abby: Okay, I don’t think I like where this is headed. Do you really think it’s fair to pull off whatever this is behind his back?

Devon: No, because billy was given power behind our backs. So, this is on them. We’re just trying to fix it, and we’re going to have a vote.

Abby: Wait, a vote? What is this about?

Jill: Oh, for god’s sake. What now? When did I call leaffilter?

Tucker: Let’s just take a beat.

Audra: No, I– I am sick and tired of being runner-up to everyone else. People that don’t even care about you!

Tucker: You are not runner-up to anyone else! We can still take our trip. I just have to do this one thing quickly first, okay?

Audra: First? First as something or someone else always comes first. Look, you already canceled our trip once when you wanted to stay and save ashley from herself. And don’t even give me that pathetic excuse that the business partners weren’t available the first time. We could’ve gone without the damn meetings. We could’ve taken an actual vacation anywhere in the world.

Tucker: Yes, and we can still take it.

Audra: When? You said that last time and I am still waiting. You just can’t do that for me, can you? For all I know, devon is just a cover story. Maybe this is just all about ashley.

Tucker: I have an opportunity. Listen to me. I have an opportunity to prove myself to him. Do you expect me to blow that? If you knew me at all, if you care about me at all, you would not.

Lily: Welcome, jill.

Devon: Thanks for joining us on such short notice.

Nate: Well, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll leave you to it. Nice to see you, jill.

Jill: All right. What’s going on here? Why are we calling this secret last minute meeting?

Abby: I’d like to know that as well. I am as much in the dark as you are.

Jill: Lily, I thought I explained this all to you when we spoke. I gave billy my complete authority and my voting rights so I could step back. And yet here you are, calling a meeting without him. This is exactly the kind of situation that I was wanting to avoid.

Lily: You made yourself very clear, but this is an emergency and we can’t reach billy.

Jill: Well, of course you can’t, because you know full well he’s traveling.

Devon: Jill, if you recall, we entered into this merger between my company and your company in good faith and a full partnership, correct?

Jill: Yep, devon. We all know how we got here. What is your point?

Devon: The point is, you brought chancellor industries to the deal. And the key word there is you. Lily and I signed an agreement with you and not with billy abbott. So, in light of that, I’d like to make a motion to clearly define billy’s power within the company. He does not get veto power or unilateral decisions. And we expect all decisions and ideas to pass through lily and myself first. And if it’s a no from us, it’s a no across the board. And this is all happening because billy is not you and he never will be you, jill.

Phyllis: I don’t know, I just think it’s kind of disgusting that your dad is touring with christine all over the world. I just think it’s gross. I just don’t understand it. I mean, why he would pick christine over having a real adult relationship with a real woman?

Daniel: I think that dad and christine seem quite happy and I think that their relationship is very mature and very adult.

Phyllis: Oh, really? Oh, okay. So, are you paying attention? Because it’s obvious that they’re trying to go after some sparkly version of the past. I think your dad is actually losing his mind. What’s going on with you? I’m talking disparagingly about your dad and you’re not doing it. What is going on with you?

So tell me about

your heart attack.

Phyllis: Why are you laughing right now? Are you mocking me?

Daniel: No, no, no. I’m not– maybe. I don’t know. Maybe a little. Yeah. Yeah, it’s– it’s– it’s just amazing how self-absorbed and involved you are. Anytime that my life is just falling apart, I can just– I can count on you to be you. That’s for damn sure.

Phyllis: Are– are you upset?

Daniel: A little, yeah. No. I don’t– I don’t know. Maybe I’m just a little numb because of everything that’s going on right now. Let me ask you something. Am I a jerk? Do you think that I’m a jerk?

Phyllis: What? No. Don’t be ridiculous.

Daniel: I’m asking you, not as my mother. I want your honest opinion here.

Phyllis: Uh, why are you asking me something like that?

Daniel: Well that, I don’t know. I just seem to be managing to infuriate everybody that’s around me recently. I pissed lily off so bad that she fired me. You know, she– she took away the games that I created, won’t give them back. She knows how much they mean to me. She knows that one of them basically saved my life. That’s how bad I pissed her off.

Phyllis: Okay, listen, listen. I know lily is upset right now, but that is not your fault. It’s not your fault you were following your heart. And I– I think– I think lily’s gonna to come around. I really do.

Daniel: Okay. What about abby? Hm? I just found out that my long-time friend voted against me. You know against a possible settlement and a lawsuit that I’m involved in. Why would she do that? Why would she turn on me? When did I become the person that everybody wants to hate?

Audra: Because I don’t wanna be overlooked by you means i must not care about you enough. Get real. You have that backwards.

Tucker: Hey, I didn’t ask devon to come to me with this now when we’re about to go to paris. And believe me, if I felt i could put it off, I would.

Audra: Yeah.

Tucker: Yes, I would. But you know what I saw in his eyes, audra? I saw– I saw a look of intense urgency. He needs my help right now. He’s in trouble right now. And if I help him out, there’s a chance, just a– a chance, that he will let me back into his life. Into my grandson’s life. And you know how important that is to me. They are the only family I have.

Audra: There it is. I am not family to you.

Tucker: Oh, god, you know what I mean.

Audra: No, what we have isn’t as meaningful as your connection to people who say they want nothing to do with you. Why? You know, if I accepted your proposal, you’d consider me family then, wouldn’t you? So, this is just you punishing me.

Tucker: No!

Audra: If I don’t bow to your commands, you can’t be bothered–

Tucker: Bow to my commands?

Audra: Showing me an ounce of respect. Tucker, I am tired of this!

Tucker: Hey.

Audra: I– I’m done with your little game.

Tucker: This is not a game. This is no game to me. Do you know what? Hey. Do you know what he says to me every time, every time I see him? “You cannot be trusted, tucker. You are a pathological liar, tucker. You– you– you only think of yourself, tucker.” And no, this is not the scenario that I dreamed of that might bring us back together, but it is a chance. It’s a shot at having a future with him.

Audra: And what about our future? We plan and plan and plan, and when it comes down to it, you cancel because you can’t keep your word. And it is time you ask yourself why.

Tucker: I just–

Audra: No, you know what? I’ll tell you. Deep down inside, you don’t want this.

Tucker: That’s not true.

Audra: You don’t want us.

Tucker: No, I don’t want us because I want to salvage my relationship with my son?

Audra: If you don’t want to go to paris with me, I will go without you!

Tucker: Come on. Audra.

Jill: I cannot believe the two of you. You do realize that this is nothing less than an ambush, don’t you?

Devon: We’re just following your lead, jill.

Abby: You could’ve at least given me a heads up.

Devon: I know, I’m sorry. We didn’t have time.

Jill: That you two would try to pull a number on billy and me like this is outrageous.

Lily: This is not against you, jill. This is what is fair. If billy has voting power, his votes and vetoes should not override ours. When you and I brought this partnership into play with hamilton-winters, it was on equal footing. And now with billy involved, the balance has shifted. So, we should all have equal voices.

Jill: Right. Equal. Meanwhile, you and devon have already made up your little voting block. This move practically neutralizes billy and anything he would put forward.

Lily: I wanted to discuss billy’s role and boundaries in the meeting the other day. But the meeting got side-tracked and we never got back on track.

Jill: So, you decided not to bring it up until this very moment, huh?

Devon: Jill, billy’s barely been back here and he’s already causing instability in the company. We’re spending more time in these board meetings than focusing on the work that we have at hand. And we need to get back on solid ground.

Jill: And this is the way to do it, you think, devon? By stripping billy of all his power and in effect stripping me of mine?

Devon: No, you stripped yourself of that power when you handed it to billy without telling anybody. And this is us trying to rectify it. So, let’s have this vote.

Jill: Why are we even bothering to take a vote? We all know how it’s gonna turn out. It’ll be devon and lily against jill and billy. And there’s no doubt which way abby’s gonna vote. So, are we done here? Because I wanna call my lawyer and figure out a way to fight this.

Abby: Jill, there’s no need to call your lawyers.

Jill: Abby, if you think I’m just gonna roll over and accept this ambush, you’ve got another thing coming.

Abby: No need for that either. Because I’m voting with you and billy.

At dot’s an ordinary pretzel

just isn’t enough.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue… this way and do not try the wise choice, abby.

Jill: Thank you for making the wise choice, abby. And lily and devon. Nice try, but I’m afraid you’re stuck with billy. And do not try this again. There will be no more board votes without billy present. I’m sorry you both feel this way, but this is the way I want it. So, make it work.

Devon: That’s great.

Lily: Well, I guess I should’ve voted for nate to join the board.

Abby: You know what? I’m sorry, lily. And now I know what it feels like to have no warning about a consequential decision.

Devon: Babe, I’m sorry that I sprung it on you, but why would you vote against me?

Abby: Why did you just think I would automatically vote with you? You didn’t even discuss it with me first. You took my vote for granted.

Devon: I didn’t mean to take your vote for granted, but I thought you understood the situation and you agreed that billy’s power needed to be neutralized.

Abby: Okay, even if I did agree with you, it doesn’t mean that I think your solution would meet that goal. I did what I thought was right.

Devon: How could anybody think that billy being forced down our throats is right?

Abby: You know, my whole life, I have been forced to choose between the people that I love. Between the newmans and the abbotts. Between family members on the same side. The last person that I thought would put me in this position is you.

Audra: Sally.

Sally: Shouldn’t you be on your way to the airport?

Audra: Whiskey. Neat.

Sally: Uh oh. What happened? You look upset.

Audra: Well, the fact that tucker is a complete jackass might have something to do with it.

Sally: Oh, god. What happened?

Audra: Oh, you know, nothing new. Just tucker’s chosen to put someone else’s concerns ahead of mine.

Sally: Ashley?

Audra: No, this time it’s devon. Tucker’s chosen to take on some doomed mission for his son instead of honoring his promise to me.

Sally: Okay, hold on. Walk me through what happened.

Audra: We were all ready to go to paris, but no. This entitled egomaniac just managed to wriggle out of it once again, claiming some opportunity to get back in devon’s good graces. Does he honestly think he can put everyone else first and I’ll just stick around? I am not some toy to be played with. I will not be treated this way and I will not stand for it anymore. What? Can’t you see what a thoughtless bastard tucker’s being?

Sally: As your friend, I get your frustration. But this time, I can kind of see tucker’s point of view.

Phyllis: You’re questioning yourself because of something abby did?

Daniel: Well, I consider her a friend, a good friend.

Phyllis: She’s not a friend.

Daniel: She is.

Phyllis: No, she’s not. She is a newman and an abbott. She’s a spoiled little rich girl who’s never had to really work like the rest of us. And who was she raised by? Victor and ashley. Who pounded into her brain that family comes first. The family business will always come first.

Daniel: And that’s gonna take precedence over supporting me?

Phyllis: Okay. Yes. Yes. As for lily, she’s gonna come around. She’s not the type of person to hold a grudge.

Daniel: Yeah, I don’t know if it’s that simple. I can’t just sit back and wait for lily to come around. This is bigger than that.

Phyllis: How’s it bigger than that?

Daniel: I don’t know what I am gonna do if I can’t get my games back. I mean, I have built my life around them. I moved back to genoa city thinking that I could start over here with people I loved. And with people that I thought loved me. But, you know, everything just– it– it feels different.

Phyllis: Hey, no, it’s not different. Everybody loves you.

Daniel: No, come on. And I barely see kevin anymore. I love being with heather and lucy, but we live in the same building as my ex. You know, and– and our breakup, it has definitely affected them. It’s definitely alienated them and isolated them. And something is just off there, and I don’t know what it is. I can’t put my finger on it, but I can’t fix it either.

Phyllis: Listen, listen, listen. You need to calm down. It’s a rough patch right now. And you’re gonna go home. You’re going to see your daughter, and she’s gonna tell you about her day. And then the three of you, maybe you’ll watch a movie or something. Something you like to do. And you’re gonna realize that you have a good life.

Daniel: Yeah. Yeah. Maybe you’re right. But maybe, I don’t know, what if this is as good as it gets for me? And I just have to accept the fact that I got to try and start my career from scratch and now my ex, she owns the game that pretty much helped me put my life back together. Yeah. Just accept that, right?

Phyllis: No, I never said you had to accept it.

Daniel: You know what? I think maybe I just need to get out of here. I need to go and I need to get my mind off this. I’ll go paint. Or I’ll sketch. Or, I don’t know, maybe I’ll try and come up with a new game. That would be good, right? That would show everyone. I don’t know. Just something to make me feel normal. Something to make me realize that this too will pass, right?

Phyllis: Hey, it will pass. It will pass. I want you to believe in yourself.

Daniel: It’s okay, it’s okay. You’re so talented, daniel.

Tucker: What happened to the good old days when kids actually listened to their parents. If advanced lung cancer

Phyllis: I never listened to my parents. I doubt you did either.

Tucker: Yeah, you’re probably right. Hey, I realized that normally we, uh, nice. We trade insults. But I could really use a parent-to-parent bonding moment right now. Go ahead.

Phyllis: List– I just wanna be honest with you. If that’s what you want, I don’t think I’m your person.

Tucker: Okay. It’s just, trying to reconnect with devon. He’s so preoccupied with work.

Phyllis: Is he? Ah, wow. Well, he’s probably trying to find a replacement for my genius son that he unceremoniously fired.

Tucker: Oh, that’s right. I forgot you work with chancellor-winters now. And daniel was fired? I didn’t know that. You know, it’s really too bad he didn’t take me up on my offer to market his video games. He’d be sitting pretty right now.

Phyllis: Okay, that wasn’t an option and you know it. You know, I believe in billy. I think that billy is going to convince the powers that be to rehire my son.

Tucker: Really?

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Tucker: Billy has that much influence?

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. Jill transferred all of her corporate power to him. So lily and devon, they don’t get to do what they please anymore.

Devon: Look, you’re absolutely right, okay? I shouldn’t have just put you in the middle of it. We were running out of time. And, you know, that’s not even an excuse. I should’ve taken the time and I should’ve talked to you. I’m sorry.

Abby: Thank you for seeing my point. But you and lily should know that I did have legitimate reasons for voting against you.

Lily: Okay, well, let’s hear it.

Abby: There is enough tension in this company. And putting handcuffs on billy is only gonna create more. And denying jill autonomy in her own role is a fire starter.

Devon: Yeah, but she lit the match when she gave billy her power without telling us.

Abby: Jill brought chancellor into this partnership. A more established and, quite frankly, better endowed entity. You and lily have clearly benefited from the deal. So putting limits on billy only puts limits on jill. I mean, is that really how you want to treat your partner?

Devon: I mean, lily and i considered all those things before we went ahead with the plan and we thought it made the most sense.

Lily: Yeah, I mean, this would’ve definitely been the easiest way to deal with it, but I guess that’s not really an option. Maybe there’s a silver lining to this motion not passing.

Devon: What would that be?

Lily: Well, I think weakening billy’s power might’ve made him more dangerous.

Audra: I can’t believe you’re siding with tucker.

Sally: No, ultimately, I am always on your side. I’m just saying that I can also see where tucker is coming from. And I’m saying that to you out of support and friendship so you don’t always feel like an afterthought in his life.

Audra: Except I am, sally.

Sally: Totally separate is that he is desperate to reconnect with his son and grandson. And this does seem like a potential golden opportunity.

Audra: Yeah, okay, maybe. But this isn’t the first time he’s canceled on me at the last minute.

Sally: Yes, maybe. But this seems different. Look, when I was little, my parents basically ignored me. I would give anything for them to spend more time with me. I’m actually a little jealous of devon that he’s got a devoted parent who wants to go out on a limb and show how much he cares.

Audra: Well, I think devoted is kind of a stretch for tucker. But I know what you’re saying. Look, I’ve had my share of family sob stories. But that’s still no excuse for how tucker treats me.

Sally: He loves you, audra. And he has faith in your feelings for him. That is not him taking you for granted. That’s trust.

Audra: Yeah, but it’s being shoved aside because he just assumes I’ll stick around. You know, devon’s cut him out of his life because he is sick of tucker’s methods always crossing the line. Methods tucker will continue to use, claiming that it’s on devon’s behalf. And he’s just willing to throw away everything he has with me just to make things even worse with his son.

Sally: But you don’t know that for sure.

Audra: But I know tucker and I know how he operates. This thing is destined for disaster. And mind you, all of this is happening right after he already canceled my trip for ashley.

Sally: I still think you might be conflating the two situations.

Audra: And why shouldn’t I? Tucker has always taken me for granted. Everyone else always comes first. And I don’t know why. Does he think that I’m just less important or– or more forgiving? Or maybe he just assumes that I am desperate, but I am not having it.

Sally: Okay, so what– what are you gonna do?

Audra: You know, maybe I’ll use our trip reservations, go to paris, and turn the glissade board of directors against him and convince them to appoint me as his replacement. That seems like a great idea.

Sally: You’d actually go there?

Audra: Well, it wouldn’t be the first time I consider taking his company away from him. You know, tucker thinks he has all the power in this relationship. But I refuse to live with that. I won’t live with that. I am done.

You’re the one that I want!

[ Knocks on door ]

Abby: Hey, do you have a second?

Lily: Uh, sure. Come on in.

Abby: I just– I wanted to make sure you understood the reason why I voted the way I did.

Lily: I do. I appreciate you bringing your own perspective, even if we disagree.

Abby: Well, I wish everyone felt that way. And no, I’m not referring to devon.

Lily: Who are you talking about?

Abby: Daniel. I ran into him and I told him I voted against settling the lawsuit with him.

Lily: Okay, um, I’m sure that was hard, but you shouldn’t discuss board business with people outside of the board, especially someone that we’re in a legal battle with.

Abby: I understand, but i only told him the way I voted, nothing more.

Lily: Yeah, but, uh, it’s still confidential, so you probably shouldn’t share that information. But anyway, I’ll, um, I’ll share something with you.

Abby: Okay.

Lily: Uh, daniel came here and was pleading his case again. And I don’t know, it kind of got to me. I know there’s gonna be a lot of bad publicity following this trial, which is something that we definitely should avoid.

Abby: Yeah, it could get pretty ugly before it’s all over with.

Lily: Yeah, so I’m trying to find a way that we can maybe have some middle ground and avoid this whole legal battle.

Abby: Like what?

Lily: Um, I don’t know, maybe we do give him one of the games and we keep a portion of the revenue. Maybe he’s an outside consultant and, you know, he can make a cut of the profits. Given that the platform is performing really well right now, it’s a pretty good deal.

Abby: Yeah, that sounds like a very fair compromise. We have enough to deal with the way everything’s blowing up right now.

Lily: And no doubt, it’s only gonna get worse from here.

Nate: Uh, hello, ladies.

Sally: Nate, good to see you.

Nate: You as well, sally. Uh, look, I hate to interrupt your conversation, but do you mind if I steal audra away for a minute?

Sally: Not a problem. I actually have to run anyway. Good luck.

Audra: Thank you. So, uh, how much of that did you hear?

Nate: Enough to know that I’m not surprised. I tried to warn you that tucker couldn’t be trusted. He’ll always put himself and his own interests first, audra.

Audra: Okay, yeah.

Nate: You, not so much.

Audra: The last thing that I need right now is your I told you so speech, or the implication that I’m a sucker because you just wanna make yourself feel better, so…

Nate: That’s not my intention at all, okay? You are one of the sharpest people I know, audra. So, what do you plan to do now?

Audra: Well, I’m deciding whether to use our reservations to fly off to paris without tucker.

Nate: I have a much better idea. Why don’t you skip the trip? Stay. Have dinner with me.

Tucker: That’s really surprising. So, jill has essentially handed over power of the company to billy. Huh. And I’m sure he’s wielding his newfound power all over the place.

Phyllis: All over the country.

Tucker: What do you mean?

Phyllis: He’s on a national tour right now promoting chancellor-winter’s divisions.

Tucker: No fooling.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Tucker: Uh, excuse me a second.

Devon: Hi, can I get a small decaf? Thanks.

Tucker: Hey, um, billy is out of town. So, it’s the perfect time to deal with him. We could circumvent any trouble he’s planning to cause with jill’s share of the company.

Devon: How do you know that billy’s out of town? That’s not public information.

Tucker: Well, you know me. I always have my ear to the ground.

Devon: Ear to the ground. Hang on a second. Hey, phyllis.

Phyllis: Hey.

Devon: How you doing?

Phyllis: Great.

Devon: Good. Did you just happen to tell tucker about billy’s new position and him going out of town?

Phyllis: Excuse me?

Devon: Where’d you find out about that?

Phyllis: Uh, from billy.

Devon: From billy? And you just decided to violate your confidentiality clause?

Phyllis: Yep, I did.

Devon: Wow.

Phyllis: Yeah, and since we’re breaking rules here, I might as well tell you I’m very disturbed that you fired the head of my division. Not only that, to add insult to injury really, you stole his creations. Who does that?

Devon: It’s funny you should bring that up, actually, ’cause I was wondering how you would even want to still work at the company.

Phyllis: Yeah, I was wondering, too. Uh, let me cut to the chase. I’ll save you the trouble. I quit. You don’t have to fire me.

Devon: Really?

Phyllis: Your business, by the way, is toxic.

Devon: That’s good to know. And I accept your resignation. Thank you for making my job a lot easier.
