Kyle: It looks like I’ve interrupted something. What are you two talking about?

Summer: Kyle, chance was just here. He told us the news that, um, he found proof that our mom is alive.

Daniel: No more doubts. No more questions. It’s undeniable. Chance is absolutely sure.

Summer: That means that the charges against diane are gonna be dropped. You believed that your mom was innocent this whole time. You were right. I’m sorry that I blamed her for a murder that didn’t even happen.

Kyle: You were racked with grief. I know how hard it is to face a pain like that.

Summer: And you know exactly what it feels like to find out that it was all lie.

Kyle: Of course, I do.

Summer: I’m so sorry. I hope that you can forgive me.

Kyle: Of course, I can. You were in pain and needed answers. All the clues pointed to my mom because that’s what stark wanted. I’m just glad he can never hurt anyone ever again.

Summer: So hasst that happened yet? Has she been formally released?

Kyle: It’s true. My mom is free.

Lucy: Thanks for letting me hang out at your offices today.

Lily: Of course.

Lucy: Those coders were so cool. I mean, it’s a totally different crore than my mom’s office friends.

Lily: Yeah. I know. Well, of course. And they have amazing fashion sense. They definitely keep our offices on trend.

Lucy: I didn’t see a single blue suit, which is basically my mom’s entire office uniform.

Lily: Well, I mean, lawyers are really cool too, in their own way.

Lucy: Um… lily…

Lily: Yeah? Lucy, whatever it is, I promise you can ask me.

Lucy: Is it true that you and my dad were married when you guys were basically kids?

[ Sally sighing ]

[ Sally panting ]

Sally: What is going on? Oh, did you feel that too?

Faith: Mariah, you don’t have to stay to help clean up. I’ve got this.

Mariah: Oh, no, you– you just got home. You can go unpack or hang out with dorm cat.

Faith: His name is borgnine, as you know. And he’s probably still sleeping. So, I’m on cleanup duty. And you know just how much I love washing dirty dishes.

Mariah: I know that. So, I’m gonna let you wash and I will dry.

Faith: Thanks. How kind of you.

Mariah: Well, I gave you a chance to escape, but you sort of blew it, so.

Nick: I mean, will you look at these pictures? The greatest collection of women who’ve ever been assembled. The photographer’s obviously very talented. He crushed it.

Faith: Poor dad. You can’t actually take credit for all of our fabulousness. All you did was take the picture.

Nick: That’s a skill, faith. I mean, you can’t just aim and shoot, all right? The framing, the lighting, it’s all perfect. I mean, ask your mom. She’s impressed.

Faith: Mom?

Sharon: Huh? Yeah. Uh, you’re all wonderful and– and talented.

Mariah: Uh, sort of out of nowhere, but I will take it.

Faith: What’s going on? What’s got you so distracted? Ma ma ma ma

[Clears throut]

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Mariah: Is it all the mom and grandma overload? It’s too much joy all at once?

Sharon: Yes. That’s exactly what I was thinking about, our family and how lucky I am to have all of you. But it is time for you two to go. There’s no reason for you to hang out. Nick can help me clean up.

Faith: We don’t mind. Really.

Sharon: No, no. Faith, you just got home. Why don’t you go and visit your friends or visit family. I know that victor and nikki are dying to see you.

Faith: I did promise granddad I’d be by to lose at chess.

Mariah: Wow. That’s the fighting spirit.

Faith: Guess the dirty dishes are on you, dad.

Nick: It is my welcome home gift to you, kiddo.

Sharon: Have fun.

Faith: Bye. Maybe we can go to the tack house first so I can video chat moses and show him the new baby.

Mariah: Perfect. I mean, if she’s asleep, she will not be for long. Trust me. Bye, guys.

Nick: Bye.

Sharon: Bye.

Nick: You did a great job covering. What was in the box that was delivered?

Sharon: Okay.

Nick: This is the motel where cameron attacked you. The son of a bitch has a twisted sense of humor.

Sharon: Makes me sick to my stomach to think about it. But, he’s in prison, right?

Nick: I mean, he certainly should be. There’s no way this lunatic should be out in the streets ever again.

Sharon: Cameron is up to something. Sending me all of these little packages and gifts. What can he possibly want? What message is he trying to send?

[ Door knocking ]

Chance: Hey.

Nick: Hey.

Chance: I got news about kirsten. It’s not great.

Cameron: Miss? Hey, I– I don’t mean to bother you, but, um, are you okay?

Sally: Yeah, I’m– I’m fine. I just– I had a little double vision. It’s just making me dizzy.

Cameron: Yeah. Well, look in– in your condition that’s– that’s nothing to mess around with, uh. Can I– can I call somebody for you?

Daniel: Well, you must be relieved, kyle. Your mom’s been vindicated. What our mother put you and the rest of your family through was brutal. Still can’t believe she would do such a thing.

Summer: But it wasn’t mom’s fault. You know, it was stark. He was the one that lured her in, manipulated her, threatened to kill her when she didn’t do what he wanted. I mean, that’s what she told you, right?

Daniel: Right. And, you know, I’m sure stark didn’t expect to wind up dead.

Summer: If stark had it his way, then mom would be the one that was dead right now. Both mom and diane are stark’s victim.

Daniel: Exactly. Just let your mom know how happy I am that this part of the nightmare is over for her and I’m sorry that I couldn’t do something to clear her sooner.

Kyle: I’ll certainly pass along your message. And we’ll always owe you a debt of gratitude for coming forward after hearing about phyllis.

Daniel: It was the only right thing to do.

Kyle: Even so, you could have kept phyllis’s secret. I know you wanted to protect her at all costs, but you didn’T. You came forward and set my mom free.

Daniel: Well, I can never stay quiet when someone’s entire future is at stake. I wouldn’t have been able to live with myself otherwise.

Kyle: I– I realize the emotions are complicated for both of you, but the good news is your mother is alive. It’s like a miracle you secretly hope for, but never out loud. I get it. And when phyllis comes forward and explains why she did what she did, christine, the police, they’ll listen. They’ll try to be fair. I know you’re worried about the repercussions, but phyllis is tough as hell. She’ll get through it.

Summer: There shouldn’t be any repercussions. Anything criminal my mom did was in self-defense. She’s not a murderer. She’s just not. The D.A. Is gonna see that. She has to. (Vo) nature valley is committed to protecting our national parks.

Lily: Um, who told you that your dad and I were married?

Lucy: So, it’s true.

Lily: Well, it was a very long time ago.

Lucy: Wow. That’s a yes.

Lily: Okay. Have you talked to your dad about this?

Lucy: No, not– not yet. But– but I can if you’re not comfortable talking about it. I mean, dad will tell me the truth no matter what, even if it’s that awful.

Lily: Well, no, no, no, no. It– it wasn’t awful. I mean, that’s definitely an overstatement.

Lucy: How old were you guys?

Lily: Uh, we were not old enough to be married, that’s for sure.

Lucy: This is crazy. I mean, you’re literally my dad’s ex-wife and you guys just act like your old friends.

Lily: Okay, listen. I do not condone what we did at such a young age. I do not.

Lucy: Okay. Okay. I get it. I won’t run off and marry some kid from homeroom. Tell me everything.

Lily: Oh, gosh. Um…

[ Laughs ] Well, we were married for almost a year, but you know, we were just way too young and, you know, couldn’t handle the responsibility that came our way.

Lucy: I mean, you guys said vows and there– there must have been a marriage license and then a divorce? I mean, just think about all the teasing I can get off of my dad. And wait, doesn’t that make you guys each other’s first loves? Wow. How romantic is that? Now you guys are together again. I mean, that’s a book I’d totally read.

Lily: Okay, hold on.

Lucy: Wait. And if my dad ever tells me that I’m too young to know what love is, I can just point at you guys. I mean, star crossed lovers destined to finally be together.

Lily: Okay, listen.

[ Lily laughing ] We were way too young to handle what was coming our way, okay? The only thing we were destined for was failure. That’s it.

Lucy: Weren’t you guys in love?

Lily: Of course. Yeah, we were very much in love and–

Lucy: Good. Then, you can–

Lily: Hello?

Daniel: Hi.

Lily: Hi.

Daniel: These two little rays of sunshine. What did I miss?

Lucy and lily: Nothing.

[ Lily laughing ]

Sharon: I’m sick to my stomach already.

Nick: What’d you find out?

Chance: So, cameron kirsten was released after serving his original sentence.

Sharon: Oh, no.

Chance: And then he relocated to los angeles.

Sharon: Is he still in L.A.?

Chance: Well, he was arrested there for assaulting his girlfriend.

Nick: That’s his thing. This coward, he goes after women.

Sharon: Same thing he did to me.

Chance: Look at this.

Sharon: That’s his girlfriend?

Chance: Yeah. She looks just like you. I doubt that’s a coincidence.

Nick: Well, do you know where he is now?

Chance: No. He was released six months ago and his whereabouts are unknown.

Nick: Doesn’t he have like a parole officer keeping tabs on him or something?

Chance: I read the report and I’ll admit, it’s kinda sketchy. So, what’s the deal with this guy? I mean, clearly he’s dangerous and outta control. Why don’t you fill me in on what cameron kirsten is capable of?

Cameron: Look, miss, I– I– I don’t wanna crowd you or disturb you or anything like that, but I don’t feel right just leaving you here like this. Are you sure you don’t need medical attention?

Sally: Yeah, I’m– I’m okay. Really. There’s someone else I can call.

[ Sally sighing ]

Adam: Sally?

Sally: Adam, I– I really hate to do this, but can you come get me?

Adam: Um, a– absolutely. What– what’s wrong?

Sally: I– I think I should go see my ob.

Adam: Okay. Um, I’m on my way. Where are you?

Sally: I’m in the park.

Adam: Okay. I– I’ll be there soon and we can get you both looked at, okay? Sally?

Sally: Yeah.

Adam: It’s gonna be okay.

Sally: Right. Yeah. Yeah. It’s– it’s probably nothing.

Adam: Just sit tight.

Cameron: Well, sounds like your hero’s on the way. (Wheezing) deliciously flavored at the turn of a dial, with zero sugar and zero calories. And cirkul has over 40 flavors, so your water can be as unique as you are. Try cirkul, available now at walmart. And now please welcome ana montoya.

Sharon: I met cameron when I was in denver and I made a terrible mistake. Nick and I were together at the time, but our marriage was in trouble. I tried to drown my troubles in alcohol, and cameron took advantage of that. I trusted him and he became violent.

Chance: He assaulted you.

Sharon: I didn’t want nick to find out what cameron had done to me. I was just going through so much at the time. So, I kept quiet and I never went to the police. I just hid out in denver and waited for my wounds to heal. It was a really hard time in my life. I just wanted to forget that it had ever happened, but I didn’t have a choice when cameron showed up in genoa city. You have to realize that when you saw me in denver, I was a different person.

Cameron: Oh, oh yeah? When– when exactly was that? When you were sitting on that bar stool pretty as a picture slamming tequila shots?

Sharon: I was in a very down, a very down time. I was running away from my own life.

Cameron: But now you’re back.

Sharon: And, um, in a way, you– you did me a favor. Beating me to a pulp like that I realized that I needed my family back.

Cameron: I never beat you. We had a lovely time together.

Sharon: All right. You– you– you believe whatever you wanna believe. I know what my face looked like after you were finished with it.

Nick: If I had known what that bastard had done to you.

Sharon: I was too ashamed. I didn’t want you to know. And cameron exploited that. He blackmailed me into meeting him one night. Made my skin crawl every moment that I was with him. But I just, I still kept telling myself that I can handle this myself. I can handle him. Cameron, I’m begging you. Okay? I’m married. I– I have children. Will you please, please just leave me alone.

Cameron: You were married and you had children when I met you in denver, and you still slept with me.

Sharon: No, no. I– I told you why that happened. Look, I– I was drunk. I– I was horribly depressed and my life was a total disaster.

Cameron: You’re the sexiest woman I’ve ever been with.

Sharon: I was out of my mind, damn it! Do you honestly think that if I had known what I was doing, if I had known what kind of man you are, I would let you take me back to that hotel room?

Cameron: You think I’m a monster? Am I a monster? Look, I don’t know why it happened that way in denver, but I know this. It doesn’t have to be that way this time.

Sharon: Oh, meaning this time you won’t beat me up. Now, there’s an offer I can’t refuse.

Cameron: Don’t– don’t– don’t you do that. Don’t get smart with me.

Sharon: Why are you doing this?

Cameron: I want you like I haven’t wanted a woman in a very, very long time.

Sharon: Too bad.

Cameron: Come on, sharon. I can be anything you want me to be. I can be anything you want me to be. I can be gentle. I can be tender. I can be a little rough if that’s what you want. You tell me.

Sharon: You just don’t get it. I want you out of my life.

Cameron: Yeah? Guess what honey? We don’t always get what we want. Where are you going? You’re not going anywhere. Not yet.

Sharon: Get– get– get off of me!

Cameron: I don’t think so. I have waited too long for this.

[ Cameron shushing ] I promise you. I promise you, you’ll like this.

[ Sharon grunting ] Sit down! You wanna play it this way, huh? Huh? Take off your dress. Get that dress off. Do it. Take it off. Take off that dress now! Don’t make me ask you again.

Sharon: I would rather die.

Cameron: You little whore.

[ Both grunting ]

[ Grunting ] Ah, you bitch!

Sharon: I thought he was dead. I thought that I killed him. I hid his body. I tried to just move on with my life. I thought that the nightmare was over, but it was only just the beginning.

Adam: Here you are. I’m glad that you called me.

Sally: Oh, thank you for coming.

Adam: Of course. Of course. You can call me anytime. Always. Um, do you think that you’re okay to walk? The car’s just right over there.

Sally: I’m– I’m so sorry for interrupting your day. Really. I feel so silly. I just, I had double vision and it passed after I sat down for a little bit, so.

Adam: Well, that’s good, but I still think that we should go to the doctor anyway. I don’t think it would hurt to get you checked out, okay?

Sally: Yeah, no, you’re probably right.

[ Sally panting ]

Adam: What is it? Did you forget something?

Sally: No. There was a guy that was really helpful and he wouldn’t leave until I was okay. I don’t know. I was gonna thank him, but I guess he’s gone.

Adam: Well, I’m glad that somebody was here for you, but come on. I really wanna get you outta here and I wanna get you to the doctor.

Lucy: Dad, your tech team is on fire. The things they were creating were– were amazing. I mean, I just can’t wait to see the animation when it’s all finished.

Daniel: I’m glad you were so impressed.

Lucy: Princess louisa is gonna slay.

Lily: [ Laughing ] I mean, she was so enthralled she didn’t wanna leave.

Daniel: Oh, sounds like we have a hit in the making.

Lucy: And to think, I inspired it all.

Daniel: Best muse ever. Hey, uh, listen. Best muse ever, why don’t you head over to the bar and order some of that pie that you’re so obsessed with.

Lucy: At the bar?

Daniel: Yes, at the bar.

Lucy: And then I assume I’m supposed to eat it there too, so that you two can talk?

[ Lily laughing ]

Daniel: Well, that’s a great idea.

Lucy: Subtle. Seriously.

Daniel: Thank you. I try.

Lily and daniel: I have news.

Lily: Okay.

Kyle: Well, my parents aren’t upstairs.

Summer: They’re not out back or in the kitchen either.

Kyle: Guess mom couldn’t wait to get back out in the world. So much of rushing home to celebrate. I guess they were in a hurry too.

Summer: Who can blame them? You know, they must be over the moon. Nobody thought that it would happen this quickly. You too. I’m really happy for you.

Kyle: Yeah. Well, the relief is intense and I imagine it will only get better. But to be honest, I was terrified in certain moments, just like I know you are with phyllis right now, but I promise you, summer, we will find her and we will bring her home.

Summer: You’re so loving thinking about me and my worries right now.

Kyle: Hey, what else would I be thinking about? You know, we’re a team. I love you, summer. You’ve gotta know that.

Summer: I love you too. I gotta go.

Kyle: What? Where?

Summer: I, um, I’ve got an errand that I need to run and since nobody’s here to celebrate anyway–

Kyle: You’re leaving now? Just like that? Looking for a smarter way to mop?

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.


Daniel: You go first.

Lily: No, you go first.

Daniel: Okay. Um, well, it’s huge. I mean, chance found proof that mom’s still alive and the charges against diane are being dropped.

Lily: That’s great. That’s amazing. See, wasn’t it worth it coming forward with the news about your mom? You did the right thing and it paid off.

Daniel: It does feel like a big weight’s been lifted.

Lily: So what’s gonna happen to phyllis?

Daniel: I have no idea how things are gonna turn out for her. And I highly doubt that she’s gonna suddenly come out of hiding and face the consequences for what she did.

Lily: Why do you think that?

Daniel: Oh, I don’t know. Maybe ’cause of who she is and what she’s done so far. Honestly, I’m not really sure of anything anymore. Except one thing.

Lily: What?

Daniel: Summer definitely knows where mom is, but she’s not gonna tell me. It’s driving me crazy. You know, thinking that she could be close by somewhere and I can’t see her. I can’t talk to her. I would give anything just to be able to hug her and just tell her that I love her and tell her how much I miss her.

Lily: I’m sorry. I know that’s really hard knowing that she’s close by and you can’t reach her. But listen, no matter what, you set something very important in motion and that’s diane’s freedom. So no matter what happens with your sister, you did the right thing.

Daniel: Summer would disagree, but it was a good thing. It was the right thing. I needed to be reminded of that. What was it you wanted to say?

Lily: Oh, uh, lucy knows that we used to be married.

Daniel: Who told her that?

Lily: I don’t know.

Daniel: Okay. How’d she take the news?

Lily: She was thrilled because she now feels like we’re star-crossed lovers who were destined to be together again.

Nick: If kirsten has a nerve to show his face in this town again after what he did, thinking he could weasel his way back into sharon’s life again–

Sharon: We don’t know that’s the case.

Nick: But he was obsessed with you, sharon, and he clearly still is. He’s deranged. The things he did to you, sharon thought he was dead and gone.

Chance: Meaning what?

Sharon: He made every moment a loving hell for me. He started all of that by haunting me outside of a window, somewhere in the shadows, so I could never get a moment away from my crime or my shame. It’s just all pain. Hold me tight. I was on edge, I was unraveling. And then one day, cameron showed up. He was alive and well. He said that he had been away on some island or something. He was acting as if nothing had ever happened. But this time he didn’t want me, just me. He wanted revenge. He wanted me to suffer.

Nick: He framed sharon for murder, then took her hostage.

Sharon: If it weren’t for nick, I wouldn’t be here right now telling you this. Nick, be careful. You’re gonna kill him.

Cameron: We’re both dead already.

Nick: Just like frank barrett, huh? I got the whole thing on tape. You’re going down, bitch. And this is for frank.

Pilot: Mr. Kirsten, everything all right back there?

Sharon: Nick, we are gonna parachute out of the airplane?

Nick: Babe, this may be our last chance to get out of this alive.

Sharon: God! Have you ever done this before?

Nick: Yeah. A couple times. It’s no sweat. Now listen to me. You jump out of the plane. You count to three, you pull this, all right?

Sharon: Okay.

Nick: Count to three. Pull that.

Sharon: Okay.

Nick: And we’re taking him with us.

Sharon: Nick, I’m so scared.

Nick: Don’t be. We’re gonna be fine. Now, come on. You’re gonna be fine. Count to three and pull. Let’s go. Get down there. Babe, when I open this door, you gotta hang on.

Sharon: Okay.

[ Door opening ]

Nick: I don’t care if you do it or not, but in three seconds, you might wanna pull that cord. Come on, babe. You turn. Come on. You can do this. You can do this. I love you. In three seconds, pull it.

Sharon: Okay.

Nick: Three seconds, okay?

Sharon: Okay.

Cameron: You are so sure that you’ve won.

Nick: We have won. Look at you. You’re pathetic and you’re gonna wish you were dead when all this is over.

Cameron: Then, you better kill me now, slick, ’cause if I walk outta here, you are dead.

Sharon: It was supposed to be over then. He was arrested, convicted.

Nick: He still needs to be in a cell.

Chance: Well, unfortunately that’s not the case.

Nick: But you understand what we’re dealing with.

Sharon: He’s relentless, vicious, and I will never let him terrorize me like that again.

Summer: I’m sorry, kyle. I– I’ll be back soon and we’ll all toast to your mom and her freedom. I– I promise you. It’s just– I– I have some things that I need to check on at the office.

Kyle: Now? Can’t you make a few calls and handle it from here?

Summer: I won’t be long. Please understand, okay? I’m not gonna be long. Ladies…

[ Sally sighing ]

Adam: Oh, false alarm. Just like we hoped. You and the baby are gonna be just fine.

Sally: It’s not that simple.

Adam: No, I know. You’re right. But your new medication is gonna be delivered soon. The doc is taking care of things. You’re gonna take the meds, you’re gonna ease up on stress and anxiety. And like she said, smaller, more frequent meals, okay? This is very doable. We got this. Look, everything is going to be alright.

Sally: You can’t be sure of that. I’ve been so careful. I have done everything that the doctor said. I’ve been eating well, I’ve been getting sleep, I’ve been taking my vitamins. How can I be at risk for preeclampsia when I’ve been doing all the right things?

Adam: I don’t know. It’s– it’s one of life’s mysteries. But now we know, so we’re gonna follow the doctor’s orders.

Sally: Yeah, but it’s not we. It’s me.

[ Voice breaks ] And I did something wrong.

Adam: No, you did something very right. That is why you called your ob exactly when you needed to.

[ Sally sniffling ]

Sally: Chloe and i really need to dive in to this assignment for chancellor-winters. Taking it easy is not on the agenda right now.

Adam: I’m sure that chloe would love the chance to shine. I mean, this could be her chance to show everybody how brilliantly talented she is. Why not ease up on the work and let her do more of it? I know that she could dazzle chancellor-winters. She could knock their socks off if she had the chance.

Sally: You really think so?

Adam: As a friend and a colleague, let her show what she’s got. Just– just delegate. That’ll give you more time to rest.

Sally: Since when did you become so calm and reasonable?

Kyle: Summer.

Summer: Kyle. What are you doing here? Did you follow me?

Kyle: Actually, I did. But only because you left the house without your tablet. I figured you would need it since you were going to the office, but I was surprised when you didn’t go to marchetti. What are you doing here?

Chance: I’m sorry to make you go through all that again. This guy is clearly a dirt bag. I appreciate you sharing that with me.

Nick: What good is it gonna do? You can’t do anything until this guy crosses the line and he knows that. He’s smart. He hasn’t made his way to genoa city, but I’m sure it’s on the agenda.

Chance: Look, I– I get it’s frustrating, but know the guy’s on my radar now, all right? He is a known perp contacting a former victim. That’s a dangerous combination. So, here’s what I think we do. If you guys get any more mysterious messages, keep sending them to me. I’m gonna see if I can find out where he’s been since he got outta L.A.

Nick: I do not want this guy anywhere near sharon or the girls.

Chance: I understand that. One step at a time, brother, okay?

Sharon: Thank you, chance. Just find out where cameron is and what he’s up to. We’ll decide what to do from there. (Bridget) with thyroid eye disease

Summer: I– I just came here to pick up a spa gift certificate for diane.

Kyle: That’s thoughtful of you, but you could have told me about it.

Summer: I know. I know. It’s just, you know, I’m feeling my way here ’cause things have been so ugly and difficult.

Kyle: Yeah, it has been for everyone. And I appreciate you doing everything you can to try to get past what’s happened. Well, I guess I better get back to the house in case my parents have gone back. Um, don’t forget your tablet for the office.

Summer: Kyle, wait. Hey, we can both go home together.

Kyle: You sure? What about the gift card and the office?

Summer: Well, I can get the gift card online and the office, it can wait ’til tomorrow. I would much rather be with you right now.

Kyle: Well, I’d much rather be with you too.

Summer: Hey, why don’t we pick up some bubbly on the way home so we can celebrate with your folks. And some balloons. Think that harrison might like that?

Kyle: Oh, champagne for the grownups, a balloon for the boy. Now, it’s a party. Come on.

Daniel: Yeah. I really wish you didn’t have to leave so soon.

Lucy: Yeah, I know. I’m meeting mom back in savannah. We have a few parties and some friends we’re meeting up with. I’ve missed them a lot.

Lily: Aw, I’m sure they miss you too. So, back to europe?

Lucy: Yeah. Mom’s got work to go back to. The blue suit gang.

Lily: Ah, the blue suit gang.

[ Lily and lucy laughing ]

Daniel: I’m sorry, the who?

Lucy: Inside joke.

Lily: Yeah, we have those now.

Adam: Me? Calm and reasonable? Hm.

Sally: It’s pretty shocking, huh?

[ Adam laughing ]

Adam: Uh, well if I’m acting that way, it’s only ’cause I’m– I’m putting you and the baby first. And in order to do that, I have to be calm and reasonable, no matter how much it goes against my nature

Sally: And boy, does it ever. But just so you know, I– I really appreciate it.

Adam: Can I tell you something?

Sally: Sure.

Adam: I’m just glad that– that you called me instead of nick. Oh, you– you– you did call nick, didn’t you? You– you– you called him first. Okay. I mean that makes sense. I get it. Um, I’m fine with that.

Sally: Really?

Adam: Really. Really. Uh, but you need to get your rest, so, um, I can, uh, I can stay or I can go. It’s your call.

Sally: Um, actually I would really appreciate it if you stayed. Maybe just for a little longer.

Sharon: Chance will have an update on cameron’s whereabouts as soon as he can.

Nick: Not if cameron doesn’t wanna be found.

Sharon: He’s screaming for attention. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have sent me the champagne and the postcard and the cigar box. Maybe that’s all it will be. Some creepy deliveries. He’s already been in prison twice before. Is he really gonna risk a third?

Nick: Who knows what he’s gonna do? He’s incapable of rational thought. Seriously, what is to stop him from making his way back to genoa city again?

Faith: Oh, my gosh. I’m so sorry. I wasn’t paying attention to where I was going.

Cameron: No problem at all.

Jack: Have you seen your mother?

Kyle: No, but I’m sure she’s around here somewhere. House arrest humor.

Jack: Not funny. And don’t let your mother hear you joking like that.

Daniel: No. I’m picking up something for Lucy.

Summer: Let me guess, cinnamon bun?

Daniel: How do you know that?

Summer: We’re a family of cinnamon lovers.

Daniel: Must’ve skipped me.

Summer: Like so many other traits.

Daniel: Hm?

Summer: Let’s just skip it.

Daniel: Good idea. How are you doing?

Summer: I don’t know. My mom is in exile, Jack and Kyle just want to drag her back so she can be arrested and Diane is dying to be my bestie, so I’m pretty much living a nightmare.

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Jack: Have you seen your mother?

Kyle: No, but I’m sure she’s around here somewhere. House arrest humor.

Jack: Not funny. And don’t let your mother hear you joking like that.

Kyle: Have you seen summer this morning by chance?

Jack: No. Have you tried texting her?

Kyle: I was hoping I wouldn’t have to. Last night, it felt like we were reconnecting. She apologized for being distant and pulling away, but she’s left without a word to me. Again, I wish it didn’t get to me, but it does.

Jack: Well, we’re all under a pressure cooker. There’s no telling how anyone’s going to react.

Diane: Oh, the conquering hero has returned.

Jack: Well, I don’t know about hero, but I got a book.

Diane: Yes, from a bookstore. So, you spoke to people. Thank you.

Jack: When you are a free woman, I will take you anywhere you want to go.

[ Diane exhaling ]

Diane: You know what? Let’s just go now, okay? Come with me, jack. Let’s just get out of here.

Michael: There she is, my favorite district attorney. Beautiful morning, isn’t it? I assume, since you picked the restaurant, I’m gonna pay.

Christine: Always a pleasure, michael.

Michael: Oh, oh, and you’re gonna offer, um, an insulting plea bargain, I’m gonna let you know right now that my client will most assuredly decline it, in the light of the fact that her supposed victim is, um, wait for it, still alive. Boom.

Christine: No deal.

Michael: And if I’m not paying, then why are you wasting my time?

Christine: There’s been a development.

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: Getting coffee?

Daniel: No. I’m picking up something for lucy.

Summer: Let me guess, cinnamon bun?

Daniel: How do you know that?

Summer: We’re a family of cinnamon lovers.

Daniel: Must’ve skipped me.

Summer: Like so many other traits.

Daniel: Hm?

Summer: Let’s just skip it.

Daniel: Good idea. How are you doing?

Summer: I don’t know. My mom is in exile, jack and kyle just want to drag her back so she can be arrested and diane is dying to be my bestie, so I’m pretty much living a nightmare.

Daniel: Well, I know one thing that can make all your worries just disappear.

Summer: Magic?

Daniel: Mom comes home. No matter the consequences. Just like that.

Summer: Just like that? I don’t see that happening anytime soon.

Daniel: You know, when I talked this through with lily earlier, she made a lot of good points about accepting responsibility and earning forgiveness.

Summer: You told lily? All of it? Wow. Daniel, are you seriously incapable in keeping a secret? What’s wrong with you?

Daniel: I’m sorry, because I want our mother to come home? Yes, how dare I?

Summer: She’s not home if she’s in a prison cell. That part doesn’t seem to bother you at all, does it? But, there’s still time. Our special guest hasn’t arrived yet.

Nick: I’m gonna stop by later. I’m, uh, really calling about cameron. Have you talked to chance? Does he know anything about cameron’s location?

Sharon: Not yet. But on the bright side, I haven’t received anymore creepy postcards or bloody souvenirs.

Nick: Well, let’s hope it stays that way.

Sharon: You know, maybe this is all a misunderstanding and cameron’s still in prison. The twisted gifts are the last desperate acts of a man who’s locked away from society.

Nick: But why reach out now? You know, after all this time?

Sharon: I’m trying to set this aside for today.

Nick: Yeah, I hear you, sharon, but until we hear from chance though, we have to err on the side of caution. If cameron has been released, you have to protect yourself and you can’t do that until you know for sure.

Nikki: Nicholas?

Nick: I gotta run. Call me if you learn anything, okay?

Sharon: I will. Bye.

[ Footsteps ] Hello?

[ Door opening ]

Faith: That’s how you welcome your daughter? What are you doing?

Sharon: Um, I’m cleaning up. Come in. You’re here. You’re home. You made it.

Faith: Oh, mom. It’s so good to see you.

Sharon: Let me look at you, my sweet girl.

Faith: Wait. I brought someone home from school. He didn’t have anywhere to go. I really hope you don’t mind.

Nick: We should be ready to close that deal once we get the paperwork back from legal.

Nikki: To hell with the paperwork. Cameron’s been released? Where is that monster now?

[ Cameron sighing ]

Cameron: Ah.

[ Cameron sighing ] Oh. Oh.

[ Cameron sighing ] Oh, hey there, you handsome devil. And since no one’s told you yet, welcome back to genoa city. It is been way too long. Febreze!

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Nick: We don’t know if cameron’s been released. It’s just speculation at this point.

Nikki: Well, how did this issue even come up?

Nick: It’s just curiosity. Nothing more.

Nikki: Because if he has been released–

Nick: Mom, we will be all over it. I promise you, if anything changes, I will tell you.

Nikki: Please do. Because we can’t have a repeat of that situation. How’s everything else?

Nick: Well, I’m glad you asked. We need to talk.

Nikki: Okay, if it’s about the abu dhabi deal–

Nick: It’s not. It’s about vic and nate. What’s your opinion about that? Actually, let me give you mine first. It is a disaster waiting to happen.

Summer: Do you even… do you even know what loyalty is? Or– or how to keep a secret?

Daniel: Yeah, you might be used to this level of chaos and deception. I am not.

Summer: Right. Your life is perfect and righteous. I forgot.

Daniel: Yeah, I needed one person to talk to. Someone who wasn’t going to condemn me. Someone who could maybe see my side of things. That person happened to be lily and you just can’t accept it. You gotta turn it into this huge betrayal.

Summer: Fine. Have a friend, but you better hope that she is better at keeping a secret than you are. I’m so stupid. Like, why did I even tell you any of this?

Daniel: It doesn’t matter. Mom called me too. She may not have spoken on the phone, but I knew it was her. So, I would’ve figured it out eventually.

Summer: You know what, daniel? You need to be careful. Because if other people start finding out about this. I don’t know, people who… own media companies, then you are putting our mom in serious danger.

Daniel: You seem to be the one with all the knowledge. So, what do you suggest we do?

Summer: She stays hidden. Until we can prove that the situation she was in was kill or be killed. I don’t know, maybe we– we try to find the emt. Stark must’ve paid him off to do what he did.

Daniel: That’s a good point.

Summer: So, we find him, we get him to corroborate mom’s story–

Daniel: We can’t put all our trust in one guy though. Especially when his whereabouts are unknown.

Summer: Well, what else are we gonna do? We can’t just do nothing.

Daniel: What about kyle?

Summer: What about kyle?

Daniel: You know that this is upsetting him. You know he doesn’t like seeing his mother suffer like this.

Summer: Yeah, living in the lap of luxury, surrounded by her family. Poor diane.

Daniel: Mom started this. She’s the one who chose this path.

Summer: People make mistakes, daniel. Chance. Hi.

Chance: Hey.

Daniel: What’s up, man?

Chance: A lot, actually. I have some news.

Summer: How bad is it?

Chance: Depends on how you look at it.

Kyle: Uh, can I get you anything?

Diane: Yeah, yeah. A night at the movies. A day at the park. Feeding the ducks at the pond with harrison.

Jack: We will have all of that if we just show patience and a little bit of faith.

Diane: I’m trying.

Jack: I know.

Kyle: I was worried you were gonna bolt. Set off the alarm bells.

Diane: No. I’m not running anywhere. I have too much to stay for. But phyllis, on the other hand, she’s probably off on some island, sunning herself.

Jack: I know it’s frustrating, but we’re not giving up, are we?

Kyle: Someone will find her, the charges will be dropped, and we’ll all go back to our normal lives.

Diane: But time is running out.

Jack: Wait, why do you say that?

Diane: Because the longer it takes to find her, the farther away she can get. She can change her name. She can meet all the right people who will help her do all the wrong things. Trust me, trust me. I know how easy it is for a motivated person to disappear.

Kyle: They are going to find her.

Diane: I don’t know. By then, I may be rotting away in some prison cell. I think– I think we all just need to come to terms with it. It is what it is.

[ Doorbell ringing ]

Kyle: Hi. Um, come in.

Christine: Sorry to barge in like this.

Michael: But this is one of those times where you, um, don’t wanna kill the messenger.

Jack: Has something happened?

Michael: I wanna see the look on diane’s face when she gets the news.

Christine: We’re dropping the charges.

Diane: What?

Kyle: Yes! I knew it.

Jack: Some prayers are answered. Wow.

Diane: Wait. It– it’s true? This is real? It’s over?

Christine: It’s really over.

Diane: Oh, god. Kayaking is my thing.

Sharon: You– you brought a friend home?

Faith: I hope it’s not a big deal. I told him it wouldn’t be.

Sharon: Well, it’s not moses, is it?

Faith: No, but moses loves him too. I’ll be right back.

Sharon: You know, if you’d told me that you were bringing someone, I would’ve straightened up the guest room.

Faith: He can fall asleep anywhere. You’ll love him. Everybody does. Mom, borgnine. Borgnine, mom. He’s a cat.

Sharon: Yeah. Well, welcome borgnine. As long as you’re here, you’re family.

Faith: Speaking of family, when do I get to meet my new niece? I can’t wait to cuddle something that doesn’t shed on me.

Tessa: Did we hear someone asking about a niece?

Sharon: Hey! Come on in. Come in. Ah, I love having a full house. Everybody please, take a seat.

Mariah: What is going on here?

Sharon: Um, this is a cat.

Mariah: Oh.

Sharon: Who is staying in faith’s room, right now. Just a sec.

Mariah: Wow.

Faith: Is this our bundle of love?

Mariah: Oh, yes. Aria, I’m so glad you’re awake because you are about to meet somebody very important.

Tessa: See, this beautiful young woman is your aunt faith.

Faith: Hello, aria. I’m so happy to finally meet you. I have waited for this moment for such a long time. Normally, I would tell you that I’ll be the one to take you for your first tattoo or concert, but since your moms came pre-loaded with that stuff, I’m pretty sure it won’t be a problem.

Tessa: Well, that will be a long way off.

Mariah: Thank you.

[ Mariah and faith laughing ]

[ Faith sighing ]

Faith: She’s so beautiful. I love her already. Welcome to the family, aria.

Nikki: Well, it’s a shame that elena had to be hurt in this. She’s a lovely young woman. But victoria seems very happy.

Nick: Oh yeah, she was real happy about ashton too. And we know how that turned out.

Nikki: Yes. But, there was no way she could have known that he was the monster he turned out to be and anyway, we all welcomed him into the family.

Nick: No, not all of us.

Nikki: All right. The thing is, victoria does not need a chaperone.

Nick: We’ll agree to disagree on that.

Nikki: What do you have against nate? I mean, we’ve known him forever.

Nick: He was different then. Now, I don’t know. It’s like he can’t operate, so now he’s just stabbing everybody in the back. This isn’t gonna end well. Not for any of us.

Nate: Latte delivery.

Audra: You’re a mind reader. Thanks. Come in. Tell me everything I need to know.

Nate: What? About the streaming deal?

Audra: You said that you had some updated numbers that we can plug in.

Nate: Ah, yes. I meant to bring that printout, but I got distracted by something else.

Audra: Something… important?

Nate: Breakfast with victor.

Audra: What did he want? And how bad did it get?

Nate: Oh, it was going great. And then, we started talking about his daughter. And my future.

Diane: No murder charge? No– no trial? It’s all just wiped away?

Christine: The lead detective found evidence that phyllis was alive at the time of her memorial.

Michael: No body, no murder, no crime.

Diane: This is unbelievable.

Kyle: But how?

Christine: Well, chance followed up on the strand of hair that you found at the motel, which led him to finding a program from phyllis’ memorial.

Michael: Yeah. The lab examined the evidence, they found phyllis’ fingerprints as well as her dna, which proved that she was very much alive after she was declared dead.

Jack: There it is. What did I tell you? The proof we’ve been hoping for.

Kyle: You made it, mom. You’re free.

Christine: So, on behalf of the prosecutor’s office, and myself, I just, want to apologize. These were extraordinary circumstances.

Diane: So, what happens now? Now that you know that phyllis is alive? What happens to phyllis?

Chance: So, the lab ran some tests on evidence I found and they just called me back with the results.

Daniel: Is it a match to our mom?

Chance: You were right to believe your brother. Phyllis is alive. And you did see her, like you said.

Summer: So everything daniel said is true.

Daniel: I would imagine that this means D.A. Will drop the charges against diane.

Chance: Yeah. They’re telling her right now.

Summer: Oh, she must be thrilled. I’m sure you are too, right? Is this what you hoped? Diane is free. But what about my mom? What’s gonna happen to her?

Chance: Look, it’s out of my hands at this point. All I know is that when we find phyllis, she will be facing charges.

Summer: If you find her.

Chance: Oh, we’ll find her. Christine is not gonna let her get away with this. I guarantee, she’ll call a press conference and have a perp walk when we find her.

Summer: Christine has always had a grudge against my mom.

Chance: Well, after the money, the man hours, and the embarrassment, phyllis is now the poster girl for what happens to the rich and powerful when they bend the law. Christine wants her to pay.

[ Summer exhaling ] I won’t let me moderate to severe plaque psoriasis

Faith: Is it possible that aria’s even cuter when she’s asleep?

Tessa: No, that’s what I’ve been saying.

Faith: You can wake her up and do a comparison.

Tessa: Don’t you dare.

Mariah: I will kill you.

Faith: I’m kidding. I would never.

Mariah: We have house rules.

Tessa: You wake her up, you put her back.

[ Faith laughing ]

Faith: I want to know everything. Every time that mom calls, she’s always too busy to asking me about myself to tell me what I’m missing.

Sharon: Well, some things you need to hear about in person.

Mariah: I mean, you know about the gala. And phyllis.

Faith: It’s awful. Poor summer. I’ve called and texted but she never answers.

Sharon: Don’t take that personally. She needs time.

Faith: How’s dad?

Sharon: You will see for yourself soon.

Faith: And how about new motherhood to the world’s cutest baby?

Tessa: It’s the hardest job we’ll ever love.

Faith: I love that. Anything else I’m missing?

Sharon: Um, I’m just happy to have all my ladies here with me. Other than that, um, nothing unusual.

Cameron: Money doesn’t have much of a conscience.

Sharon: Yeah. Well, what about you, mr. Kirsten?

Cameron: Well, my conscience is, um, is kind of like my lawyer, my accountant. I can consult it, but, uh I don’t always follow its advice.

Sharon: If you ever, ever, mention to my husband having met me before, I will make sure that the whole world knows what a sicko you are.

Cameron: Don’t threaten me. Because you know what? I got nothing to hide. Now you, on the other hand, you seem to feel you have quite a bit to lose.

Sharon: My children are young, okay? They need me. Now, what possible pleasure could you get out of harming them? Well, that was a stupid question, wasn’t it?

Cameron: Not at all. I like that you came looking for me. So, we can discuss this privately.

Sharon: Please tell nicholas that you can’t make this dinner.

Cameron: Let me ask you something. Do I get a, uh, a little something in return?

[ Cameron sighing ]

Christine: At the very least, phyllis is guilty of fraud and obstruction of justice. On the other end of the spectrum, we have the murder of jeremy stark.

Michael: Which was reportedly self-defense.

Diane: Yeah.

Christine: Once they can track down how the ambulance crash was staged and how the bodies were switched out, that list is gonna get longer and longer.

Jack: It finally happened. Kyle, what do you think?

Kyle: It’s great. I mean, we can pick back up where we left off, wherever that was.

[ Laughing ] I need to find summer. She has to hear this from me.

Daniel: I’m just glad that diane can be back with her family, for good. We both are.

Summer: Right. Yeah. Of course.

Daniel: I just wish we could do the same for mom.

Chance: Well, look. Everything’s up in the air until we get a statement. I gotta run, but I’ll be in touch with any updates.

Summer: Wait, chance. That can’t be it. You must’ve found something else in the motel. Evidence to prove that it was self-defense?

Chance: The room wasn’t even preserved a crime scene. I was lucky to find what I did. Any sign of struggle, it was long gone somewhere.

Summer: Well, how am I supposed to help my mom?

Chance: You know I can’t advise you on that.

Summer: But she is innocent until proven guilty, right? All I’m asking for is that she’s able to come home without an extended prison stay. Look, any guidance that you can give me.

Chance: I’ll do what I can. Within the bounds of the law, okay?

Summer: Of course. I wouldn’t expect anything else.

Chance: First of all, phyllis needs to come home and she needs to make a statement. We all need to hear this from her lips. (Wheezing)

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Audra: You went toe-to-toe with victor newman himself and lived to talk about it.

Nate: It wasn’t toe-to-toe. It was a friendly conversation.

Audra: Does victor do friendly? He was trying to get a read on you, which basically determines your entire future. So, tell me all the details.

Nate: Well first, we started talking about my past as a physician. All the while, I’m trying to figure out what this meeting was about. Then, he brought up victoria.

Audra: Nothing like a little fatherly interference.

Nate: That’s when I knew that the only way out was being totally honest.

Audra: And that’s when you lost your job.

Nate: Will you please let me finish the story? He mentioned a time I did him a favor, that almost led to me losing my job. I was his personal physician for a while, and it almost cost me my medical license. Boy, was I furious, for a while. But, I understand him and his family better now.

Audra: I mean, it sounds like he trusts you. That’s worth a lot to men like him. You impressed an actual legend. That’s pretty huge. And now you’re seeing his daughter, and it sounds like you have his blessing.

Nate: But there’s this one problem.

Audra: Name it.

Nate: Nick.

[ Girls laughing ]

Mariah: Hey.

Nick: There she is.

Faith: Hello.

Nick: Look at that. We sent away a little girl, they sent back a scholar.

Faith: Oh, it’s so good to be home.

Nick: Hey, don’t stay away so long next time. I mean, noah got tired of waiting and he just took off.

Faith: Untrue.

Nick: Okay, that’s probably right.

Faith: It is so not my fault. He opened up a glam club in the uk.

Sharon: He’s back in his old stomping grounds.

Mariah: And it’s safe to travel there now because his ex lives here.

Faith: And allie’s learning the ropes at the jabot lab in paris?

Sharon: Oh, did he tell you? It is the sweetest thing. Each weekend, one of them takes the train to visit the other. Or, they both spend a few days in some other country in europe.

Faith: Poor kids. Their lives are so empty.

Nick: Yeah, their passports are probably junked up with a bunch of stamps from exotic locations.

Tessa: Yeah. Like, why couldn’t they just do something romantic instead?

Mariah: Like come babysit.

Tessa: Yeah.

Faith: As gorgeous and time consuming as aria is, it’s no excuse to put your music on hold, tessa. Next on my road to building my business portfolio? I think I should start guiding your music career.

Tessa: Can we bring the baby on tour?

Mariah: I mean, I can work remotely for jabot.

[ Doorbell ringing ]

Nick: Are you expecting anyone else?

Diane: Right now, I am thinking about the one person who can give me what I want.

Michael: Don’t look at me, I’ve done all the tricks I know.

Christine: Oh, I think I know who she’s looking for. Oh.

Michael: Ah.

Christine: Right on cue.

Chance: Morning.

Diane: Good morning.

Christine: And on that note, my work is done here.

Jack: Christine. Thank you.

Diane: Yes, thank you so much.

Christine: All right, she’s all yours.

Chance: All right.

Diane: And I cannot wait another second.

Chance: It’ll be quick. I promise.

Kyle: Chance, we owe you our thanks, and probably a few apologies.

Jack: Absolutely. I wasn’t always my best self in all of this and I know that.

Chance: Well, work usually starts with the worst day of someone’s life, so I get it. No apologies needed. All right. You are free to go. Or stay here because you live here.

Diane: I am free to come and go.

Kyle: You can live your life again. How do you feel?

Diane: I feel fantastic. Thank you. Thank all of you for everything. You’ve– you’ve given me my life back.

Daniel: I just hope that wherever mom is, she is staying safe.

Summer: You’re the one that put her in danger. Now, you’re worried about her? That’s really rich.

Daniel: I know, it’s all my fault. You did nothing wrong. She did nothing wrong.

Summer: Daniel, I told you that she was alive in confidence. And look at what you’ve done?

Daniel: God, I am so sorry that I have a conscience.

Summer: There’s a full-blown manhunt for our mom.

Daniel: I know.

Summer: All she wanted was to get her ducks in a row. Was that really too much to ask?

Daniel: Diane might disagree.

Summer: Yeah, well diane has her own family that is worried about her. Mom is supposed to be our family. I mean, you heard chance. Christine is out for blood.

Daniel: Do you wanna keep going off on me? Or do you wanna actually try and maybe work together and figure out a way that we can help mom.

[ Summer exhaling ] Okay, look, have you left anymore messages for her on that number that she called you from?

Summer: No.

Daniel: Maybe we need to change tactics. Maybe, I should call her, I leave her a message, tell her that the police are looking for her, beg her to come home.

Summer: Absolutely not. You do that and she’s gonna run and she’s never gonna look back. Not for her own sake, but for us. All she cares about right now is protecting us.

Daniel: Why does it sound like you have inside information? Like you know what’s going on inside mom’s head?

Summer: Because we think alike.

Daniel: Have you been in touch? Have you seen her again? Summer, do you know where she is? We’re done.

Audra: How is nick a problem for you?

Nate: He’s had it out for me at least since victoria gave me sally spectra’s job. And now, he sees I have the chops for this job he didn’t think I deserved. I’ve watched him over the years.

Audra: What’s your read?

Nate: Tenacious. And that’s when he doesn’t even give a damn. But this is about me and his sister. He didn’t trust ashland and he was right to do so, but now he thinks he’s victoria’s noble protector. And he’s not giving up.

Audra: What will you do?

Nate: Handle the problem.

Audra: Well, he’s a newman. Handling him is going to be a delicate operation.

Nate: And that’s where you come in.

Nick: Did that wake up the baby?

Tessa: No, I don’t think so.

Nick: I thought I heard her fussing a little.

Faith: I didn’t hear anything.

Nick: Well, that’s because you don’t have supersonic parent hearing like we do, faith. I mean, even while she’s asleep, she’s adorable.

Tessa: I just could not agree more.

Mariah: I mean, sometimes we’ll just look at her at home for hours and hours. It’s very, very hypnotizing.

Nick: What about you, faith? Are you hypnotized by your niece?

Faith: She’s great. But when will she start doing… stuff?

Mariah: Well faith, that is a very good question. You know the child development books say that around six months, she starts doing stuff.

Faith: I didn’t mean it like that.

Mariah: Is my child boring to you? She’s boring you.

Faith: No. I love her. I could just use some feedback.

Mariah: Oh, I’ll give you some feedback, college girl.

Faith: Oh, what’s in the box?

Mariah: I wish it was pizza.

Tessa: In the morning?

Mariah: What? I’m hungry.

Faith: I thought it might be cat food for borgnine. I placed an order before I came home.

Nick: What? You have a cat?

Faith: Yeah.

Nick: A live one?

Faith: Yeah.

Tessa: Cute.

Nick: Where is it?

Mariah: It’s in her room.

Tessa: When do we get to see him?

Faith: I know. I have to show you.

Jack: It feels like christmas.

Diane: We have so much celebrating to do.

Jack: Kyle said this day would come.

Kyle: Yeah, I just wish summer was here.

Jack: You know this isn’t gonna be easy for her. Great that phyllis is alive, but–

Kyle: She’s gotta wonder where she is, worry about what’s next for her legally. Not to mention all the guilt. Knowing her mother was so hell-bent on revenge, she was willing to go to–

Diane: Nothing from summer yet?

Kyle: She’s not answering my texts.

Diane: Oh, I saw her this morning. She was taking a big bag of things to the clothing drive at the women’s center.

Kyle: She didn’t mention anything about that to me. I’ll see if I can catch up with her. Let you two get reacquainted.

Diane: But before you go. Kyle I– I don’t know what I would’ve done without your love and your faith in me.

Jack: Hey, he wasn’t alone.

[ Diane laughing ]

Diane: Okay. Both of you. No, seriously, I will never forget what you did for me and um, I will spend the rest of forever showing you how much you mean to me.

Jack: Get over here.

Kyle: Aw.

Summer: I know what mom’s thinking because I know how she thinks.

Daniel: If you know where she is and you’re not telling me–

Summer: Then I’d have a very good reason, wouldn’t I?

Daniel: Oh, come on, summer. Is she okay? Will you at least tell me that? I mean, I deserve to know that. Is there something that I can do to help?

Summer: Our mom is a survivor. She can take care of herself.

Daniel: Yeah. Yeah, you’re right, summer. You and mom, you are just two of a kind. But you know, as tough as you are, sometimes you need some help. You can’t just fix this on your own.

Summer: You’ve done enough already. So thanks, but no thanks.

Daniel: If you wanna blame me, fine, blame me, but at least give me the chance to help turn things around and help with this. We need each other right now whether you want to admit it or not. Mom knows that too.

Summer: I know where she is.

Daniel: How is she?

Summer: She is not turning herself in, I know that much. Not until we can be sure that she can get her life back.

Daniel: Okay. Okay, so what’s the plan? What do we do?

Summer: There’s no we, daniel. I told you that she’s safe. That’s all that you need to know. I’m handling this on my own, without your special brand of help.

Daniel: Summer, this is a mistake. This is too big. It is too risky for you to do on your own. You need to let me in.

Summer: I can’t do that. Not with mom’s freedom at stake.

Daniel: So you’re just gonna cut me out? Just like that? Even though I can help.

Summer: You know what you can do to help? You can back off. I’m the one that’s helping her. And I swear to you, daniel, if you tell anyone else about this.

Daniel: Hey, kyle.

Faith: He is just a little kitty, how much trouble could he be?

Nick: Famous last words.

Faith: You’re gonna love him. I mean it.

Nick: Faith, your roommates stuck you with a cat for the summer. They clearly know who the sucker is.

Faith: It just means I have a big heart.

Nick: Well, now you are back where you belong. You and borgnine.

[ Girls laughing ]

Tessa: We missed you so much.

Faith: It’s so good to be home.

Summer: You must feel better now that you’ve had some food.

Phyllis: Yeah, I do. What would I do without you?

Summer: Let’s not even go there.

Phyllis: I mean it, Summer. It’s like you’re my own personal emergency kit, and you’re on it. Seriously, you know how I feel and you can turn on a dime and you’re one step ahead of anyone who tries to best us.

Summer: Got lucky, I guess.

Phyllis: Well, I don’t know if I’m lucky, but you are my secret weapon, so that’s– that’s luck. Look at you, you’re a C.E.O. And a mom, a wife. Oh, and you are stronger and more fierce than you ever were, aren’t you?

Summer: Turns out helping your dead mother stay one step ahead of the police counts as cardio.


Summer: Look, I– I know that I haven’t always been there for you, but I am here now, okay? For us.

Phyllis: This is us now.

Summer: Yes. Whatever happens to you, it happens to me. I think I forgot that for a second. But mom, whatever you need from me, support, evidence, unconditional love, snacks, whatever it is, I am here for you and I am not going anywhere.

Recap written by Terry

Chance reported to DA Christine that dried tears on a program at Phyllis’ memorial matched the DNA from the blood found in the ambulance that crashed and burned while supposedly carrying Phyllis. Chris concluded it meant only mean one thing – Phyllis is alive. Chris became furious, stating that what Phyllis did was vindictive and vicious and was done to get back at one woman (Diane). Chris said Phyllis had no idea what she had unleashed and vowed to prosecute everyone involved in the scheme.

Summer met with her mother in her room to bring her food and personal items. Summer warned her not to leave. Phyllis asked her daughter if she trusted her, but Summer replied that she didn’t. Phyllis apologized for what she had put Summer and Daniel through and promised to make it up to them. Summer said that first they have to clear her name. “I didn’t do all this so you could go to prison,” Summer said. Earlier, in an effort to avoid prison, Phyllis searched online for something about the EMT that Jeremy Stark paid off, and for something to give her proof she was right to protect herself when she killed him.

Daniel told Lily that Phyllis is alive and that she killed Jeremy Stark in self defense after he attacked her. Lily was furious, saying a mother is supposed to protect her children and be a role model, but Phyllis let her kids think that she was dead and let them grieve. She said Phyllis was taking the easy way out and won’t come back until she faced zero consequences. Lily called her selfish and a coward. She told Daniel that while she did not support the choices of Summer and Phyllis, she supports Daniel because he loves them. Daniel said he did love them, but he didn’t know if that was enough anymore, unaware that Summer told her mother that repairing their relationship was not a priority now.

Earlier, at the Abbott mansion, Diane told Summer she was sorry for the stress her situation is causing Kyle and Summer and that she is there for them.

Victor apologized for his harsh statements against Chance, regarding the breakup of Chance and Abby’s marriage. Victor said he had a deeper understanding and that Chance had every reason to raise a fist against him. Chance replied that he would be foolish to try. Victor asked if the accusations against Diane were true. Chance said he could not comment on the investigation.

Nate met with Victor and asked if he, Nate, was in for a grilling (because he’s dating Victoria.) Victor said it was just a friendly catch-up. Nate thought he was meeting with Victor because Nick is completely opposed to Nate being in the company and with Victoria. Victor asked him what his intentions were regarding Victoria. Nate stated he had no intentions of undermining the company or Victoria.

Billy noticed a spring in Victoria’s step when he saw her at Crimson Lights. She admitted she was dating Nate, but she steered the conversation towards their children and the dinner that Johnny attended with Chelsea, Billy, Lily, Daniel, Lucy and Connor. Victoria said Lucy’s name came up a few times in conversation later, so Lucy must have made a real impression on Johnny. Billy said he felt something was in the air.

Lily: Hello. The only thing you’re gonna find at the bottom of that coffee cup is a case of the jitters.

[ Lily laughing ] Are you still not sleeping?

Daniel: Is it that obvious?

Lily: Well, only to the trained eye.

Daniel: Do you want a cup?

Lily: Um, no, I’m good. I’m gonna be charged and centered.

Daniel: Yoga?

Lily: Yeah. You wanna join me?

[ Daniel chuckling ] No? Okay.

[ Lily laughing ] You know you can always call me, right? Even if it’s the middle of the night. I really wish there was something I could do to help you.

Daniel: Would you, um, would you actually come up to my room for a minute? I gotta tell you something.

Phyllis: Every slug leaves a trail. Where’s your trail, stark? And will it help clear my name?

[ Phyllis sighing ]

Diane: Summer, where are you sneaking off to and what’s in all the bags?

Victor: Good morning, detective.

Chance: Morning.

Victor: How are you?

Chance: I’m all right. How’re you doing?

Victor: All right. You know, I often thought about our last few conversations and I now have a deep understanding of what happened between you and abby. So, if I said things to you that were hurtful, I apologize. You got every reason to raise a fist against me.

Chance: At you? I’d be foolish to try.

[ Victor chuckling ]

Victor: Anyway, I think you’re a good man. You do well. All right?

Chance: I appreciate that.

Victor: Okay. Before you go, let me ask you something else. The accusations against diane jenkins regarding the murder of phyllis summers, are they true?

Chance: I know this is not what you wanna hear, victor, but I am not at liberty to divulge any information about an open investigation.

Victor: So, this is your polite way of saying you won’t keep me in the loop?

Chance: It’s exactly what I’m saying.

Victor: All right. Have a good day.

Chance: You too.

Victor: Nate. Very good. Have a seat, old boy.

Nate: Thank you.

Victor: What a beautiful day outside. Now, I’m starving. What are you having?

Nate: Uh, just curious as to why I’m here. Is this a meeting about newman media or is this a barbecue and I’m what’s on the grill?

Victoria: Good morning, billy.

Billy: Ooh, la, la! What do we have here? Who the heck are you?

Victoria: Same me I’ve always been.

Billy: No, this is a decidedly different ms. Newman than I’ve seen in a very long time. You got a little pep in your step.

Victoria: Well, it could be the shoes. I had them flown in from milan.

Billy: I noticed the shoes. It’s not your shoes. No, this is–

Victoria: A woman on the top of her game. So, how’s everything going at jabot?

Billy: You’re trying to change the subject and I can’t let that happen because it’s me.

Victoria: You know, I was having such a lovely morning until I ran into you.

[ Billy chuckling ]

Billy: Just tell me what I wanna know and I’ll go away.

Victoria: Quietly?

Billy: You know me too well, just like I know you. So, this pep in your step, when do I get to meet the guy? I used to wait to run my dishwasher

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Victoria: All right. As a matter of fact, yes, I am seeing someone.

Billy: Well, now, look at you. That’s great. I’m very happy to hear that.

Victoria: Thank you.

Billy: Look, you went through hell with he-who-shall-not-be-named. Those shenanigans are enough to put anyone off of love and romance. So, who is the guy?

Victoria: It’s nate hastings.

Billy: That’s funny. Same name as the guy who’s living with elena dawson.

Victoria: He’s not anymore.

Billy: I should hope not.

Victoria: And before you say anything, billy, I have no intention of introducing him to the kids in the near future, so.

Billy: I hadn’t even gotten there yet, vic.

Victoria: Well, what happened to all of your support? The “way to go, victoria?” Am I about to get a ticket from the billy abbott morality police?

Summer: Oh, um, I was just getting donations together for the clothing drive at the women’s center.

Diane: Oh, how charitable of you? I– I wish I would’ve known. I’m sure there’s a few things I could have added.

Summer: Well, they do it a few times a year, so. Uh, and this one actually is just for kids’ clothes, so.

Diane: Oh, I see.

Summer: I’ll let you know next time.

Diane: Oh, please do. You know, I wish I could go with you and help out. I’m going crazy stuck in this house.

Summer: It’s just as well, because I– I think I’m gonna go for a long drive afterwards to clear my head, you know.

Diane: Of course. Summer, I don’t mean to keep you.

Summer: What’s up?

Diane: I’m sorry. I’m sure you’re wondering what I’m apologizing for, but I’m sorry that my situation is causing so much stress between you and kyle.

Summer: Kyle and I are gonna be fine.

Diane: Well, just know that I want this case resolved as much as you do. More even.

Summer: I’m sure that you do, diane.

Diane: Yeah. And while I have my own issues with your mother and the horrible position that she’s put us all in, especially you, I want you to know that I– I do still care for you. And I am here for you and kyle, whatever you need, just let me know.

Summer: Thanks.

Daniel: Thank you for giving me a minute. I don’t even know how to say this.

Lily: That’s okay. Is it about lucy?

Daniel: No, she couldn’t be better.

Lily: Okay. Good. Is it work? And I’m– I’m asking as your friend, not your boss.

Daniel: We are on schedule and under budget.

Lily: Okay. Good. I love hearing that.

[ Lily laughing ] It’s about your mom?

Daniel: That’s the one. Yeah. That whole general area right there.

Lily: Yeah. What’s going on?

Daniel: Did you notice that I haven’t been grieving as much as I was when we first heard about what happened?

Lily: Well, I mean, everyone grieves differently. That’s natural.

Daniel: No, there is nothing natural about it and that’s the whole point. There are things that have happened that I had no control over, but I did not do something and I regret it.

Lily: What did you not do?

Daniel: I did not tell you the truth. And it’s only because I was sworn to secrecy and I don’t know. The whole thing is just driving me crazy.

Lily: Okay, daniel, what’s going on? What happened?

Daniel: My mother is alive.

Daniel: So that’s, um, that’s the whole story for now. Can you say something please?

[ Lily exhaling ]

Lily: I– I don’t think I can, ’cause I think if I do, you’re gonna end up hating me.

Daniel: No, never.

Lily: Daniel, like what? Like what– what world does your mother think it’s okay to fake her own death?

Daniel: I mean, in her defense–

Lily: Are you– are you being serious right now?

Daniel: She wanted to end the charade, but stark stopped her. I mean, he tried to kill her, so she had to stop him first.

Lily: Sorry. Stop him how?

Daniel: It was self-defense.

Lily: Wait, are you telling me that she killed jeremy stark?

Daniel: He attacked her first. He attacked her first.

Lily: I– I– I– I– I don’t even know what to say. Nope. Not gonna say anything. It’s your mother. You thought she was gone and you’re happy she’s back and that’s your priority.

Daniel: Listen, I brought you here because I wanna hear what you have to say.

Lily: Daniel, this is not what a mother does. A mother protects her children and behaves in a way to show her children how to behave in the world, whether you’re an adult or a child. She let you think that she was dead. She let you grieve and then she kills jeremy’s stark? She frames diane. She won’t come home to clear diane until she’s sure that she’s off scot-free. I am sorry, but your mother is selfish and she’s a coward.

Victor: Now, this is not a grilling, it’s a friendly catch up. It’s been a while.

Nate: It has.

Victor: You’ve seen our family go through ups and downs. We have known you for a while.

Nate: Things were, uh, complicated then.

Victor: Yeah, that’s putting it mildly. So, you’ve learned how our family operates.

Nate: I’m gonna take a stab in the dark. I’m here because nick is opposed to me on every level. Not only does he want me out of newman media because of sally, now, he’s questioning my character.

Victor: I form my own opinion about people, nate.

Nate: I appreciate that about you.

Victor: So, it’s no secret that your relationship with my daughter, victoria, has gone beyond the professional.

Nate: This is true.

Victor: But as her father, you can imagine that I would like to know a bit more about you personally. What do you think?

Nate: I like that very much.

Billy: So, I’m a hypocrite for having an opinion about nate?

Victoria: Oh, having it is one thing, but sharing it with me, that’s another thing.

Billy: Okay, fair enough. The view from my glasshouse is legendary. So, how about this? I’ll put down my sticks and stones if you do the same thing. No talk of romance or relationships or any of that. We’ll talk about the kids. How about them kids, huh?

Victoria: Let’s talk about the kids, yeah. You know, johnny, he, um, he’s been going on and on about this big family dinner that you had the other night.

Billy: Yeah. Crazy times.

Victoria: Yeah. You wanna remind me of that eclectic guest list again? It was your ex and her current and your girlfriend and johnny and connor and daniel’s daughter.

Billy: All came out of the blue.

Victoria: Yeah. Well, I can’t see anybody wanting to plan that on purpose.

Billy: It was the spur of the moment and we went with it.

Victoria: That’s nice.

Billy: You actually sound like you mean that.

Victoria: I do. I’ve heard lucy’s name mentioned around the house a few times, so i guess she’s made a real impression on our son.

Billy: Yeah. Felt like there was a little something in the air. How about that? We’re all following our hearts, as it should be. ‘Cause you never know who life is gonna throw your way.

Victoria: Yeah, that’s true. God knows I didn’t– I didn’t see this coming–

Billy: Careful. This is a risky conversation. But since you brought it up, are you happy?

Victoria: I’m very happy.

Billy: Then, I’m happy for you.

Victoria: Thank you. Because at this point I would hate to have to hide anything in my life. And work and family and personal, it just– it keeps getting better and better.

Chance: What’s new in the lab? Please tell me you’re calling about that miracle I asked you to work? Yeah. What do you got? Walk me through it. Okay. Yeah. What do you know? Okay. Yeah. Thank you. I, uh, I owe you big time. Dinner it is. Absolutely. Yeah. You’re the best. We’ll see you.

Phyllis: Everybody leaves breadcrumbs, stark. Everyone. There’s gotta be some sketchy search or some email you forgot to encrypt. Something that gives me proof that I did the right thing by defending myself. I’ll find it.

[ Door knob jiggling ] Oh, it’s you. Good, good, good. Oh, my gosh. I missed you. Not just because I’m starting to talk to myself and I am really starting to talk to myself, just so you know. Are you okay?

Summer: Yeah, I’ve been better.

Phyllis: Oh, all right. Good. I’m glad you’re okay. So, so…

[ Summer exhaling ] Did anyone see you in the lobby?

Summer: No, I took the stairs.

Phyllis: Okay, good.

Summer: What have you found out?

Phyllis: Um, I’m trying to find out something about that emt guy.

Summer: The one that stark paid off?

Phyllis: Yeah, his name is carson.

Summer: Oh, I’m sure that stark paid really well. He’s probably living on a tropical island by now.

Phyllis: Well, I mean, it’s not a lost cause. We can still find some proof.

[ Laughs ] So, um, talk to me about, you know, your monster in-law. I mean, is she just in all her glory wrecking me over the coals because she knows I’m alive?

Summer: She restrains herself.

Phyllis: Hm. Does she? There are other ways to be awful. Trust me. What about christine? She still doesn’t buy daniel’s story that I’m alive?

Summer: Oh, my god, daniel. I–

Phyllis: Oh, my god, daniel what?

Summer: I don’t wanna talk about him, okay? He opened his big mouth to the wrong people.

Phyllis: Okay. Well, I mean, I understand what you’re saying and I have a problem with him doing that too. I mean, I would’ve loved to have more time to come up with a plaN.

Summer: What we needed was an ironclad justification for what you did. That was supposed to be step one.

Phyllis: Let’s look at things from daniel’s perspective, okay? Let’s just–

Summer: No. I don’t wanna look at it from daniel’s perspective. I don’t– I don’t understand his perspective and I’m never going to. Ultomiris is for adults with generalized myasthenia gravis

Phyllis: All right. Sorry. I don’t wanna tell you how to think or feel. You’re an adult. I just hate it that my kids are at odds, that’s all.

Summer: I just don’t– I don’t understand why he’s so infuriating. I– I literally asked him to do the simplest thing.

Phyllis: Well, it’s because he’s danny’s son. And danny has a moral compass that’s just stuck at do the right thing.

Summer: What does that say about ours?

Phyllis: Well, our moral compass is sort of like, uh, you know, do what you have to do. Do what’s necessary to get the job done. Listen, if you both had been raised by me, daniel would be, you know, more like us. You know, more shoot from the hip, more flexible.

Summer: Didn’t turn out that way, did it?

Phyllis: No. But you know what? We’re a family. We are a family, summer. And sometimes we disagree and we fight and we do the wrong thing, but we make up. I mean, look at me. I came back from the dead. Anything can happen, so.

Summer: Mom, I sincerely hope that you have a backup plan.

Phyllis: Obviously, I have a backup plan.

Summer: One that doesn’t involve you disappearing if things don’t go your way?

Phyllis: Yeah. You know what I wanna do? I wanna repair what’s been broken. I did this. I ruined the relationship between you and your brother, okay? I wanna repair that. I mean, I cannot believe that I’ve put you guys in this position, all right?

Summer: Mom, what you need to do is focus on clearing your name so that you can come back to us for real. My relationship with him, it’s not a priority.

Lily: Look, I’m sorry. That came out a lot harsher than I meant it to.

Daniel: No. No. I mean, if we can’t be honest with each other, why even bother, right?

Lily: Look, I understand your mom’s instinct to wanna run away from what’s coming for her, but at some point, you have to face your fears. And what she’s doing is she’s taking the easy way out.

Daniel: She’s not gonna stay gone forever.

Lily: No. Just until she faces zero consequences.

Daniel: She’s coming back one way or the other.

Lily: Really? Are you sure?

Daniel: Yeah. I have to be sure because, you know, the alternative is… it’s unthinkable.

Lily: God, I– I hate what her choices are doing to you.

Daniel: What was it like for you? After the accident with hilary. Going to prison.

Lily: It was awful, you know. I didn’t wanna go, but I knew that I wouldn’t be able to look at myself or look devon in the eyes again if I didn’t pay for what I did. Like someone died because of my actions. There has to be consequences to that.

Daniel: Prison must have been brutal.

Lily: Yeah, of course, but, you know, there’s a silver lining to everything. And I met a lot of amazing women. You know, I got to help a few and– and I came out stronger for it.

Daniel: Not many people would’ve done what you did.

Lily: I don’t think that’s true, daniel.

Daniel: Look at my mother. I mean, she’s willing to frame an innocent woman and let her go to prison for murder, and summer, summer’s not much better. She’s following right behind mom in her footsteps.

Lily: Absolutely. I agree with you. And I do not respect their choices, but I support you and I know that you love them.

Daniel: Yeah, I do love them, but I don’t know if that’s enough anymore. I mean, how the heck are we supposed to ever be a family again?

Victor: If I hadn’t seen that with my own eyes, I wouldn’t have believed it.

Nate: That is an incredible story.

Victor: I know, right? Another example of how life can surprise you when you least expect it, you know?

Nate: Truer words were never spoken.

Victor: That’s right.

Nate: You know, um, I know you’ve heard this a thousand times, but you’re the reason I enrolled in business courses in college.

Victor: You serious?

Nate: Yes. I– I picked up a copy of your biography, man and myth.

Victor: That was from another lifetime.

Nate: I wanted to learn more about the company and the man that meant so much to neil.

Victor: Yeah, well, neil was one of the few men I trusted, you know?

Nate: Yeah.

Victor: He was a good friend.

Nate: Yeah. Deeply missed. And, uh, as I got deeper and learned more about your life, what struck me was how you managed to create so much, build so many companies from practically nothing

Victor: Got lucky.

Nate: [ Laughs ] I’d say it’s more than that. But I admire your modesty, as well as the way you’ve nurtured and raised your daughter.

Victor: So, just cut to the chase, nate. What are your plans for my daughter?

Christine: Hey, I got your message. You said you had news?

Chance: I just got off the phone with the lab.

Christine: So, the results are in? Okay. Break it to me gently. How bad is it?

Chance: You might wanna sit down for this. Hi.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue. Hi.

Nate: You’re, uh, asking my intention vis a vis victoria?

Victor: You’ve known her for years. In fact, you were best man at her wedding to ashland locke.

Nate: I wish I’d known then what I know now.

Victor: Don’t we all?

Nate: I know a few ceos and even fewer surgeons who are shrinking violets. I think what led me to medicine was my mother. I wanted to follow the example she set, so when I learned I couldn’t operate anymore, um, I felt I needed a new outlet.

Victor: Ah. Let me ask you, doing surgery must be incredibly stressful.

Nate: Indeed, it was. Yeah. But I– I lost that gift and found I had another in business.

Victor: Uh-huh.

Nate: And victoria has been a big part of that. Her support, her faith in me. She accepts me for who I am and where I am. It’s been, um, it’s been a hard road lately. I’m not sure how much you’ve heard.

Victor: Some.

Nate: Mm-hmm. When your family turns their backs on you, when they revile you, say you’re bringing shame to the name that you’re different.

Victor: And you feel less than appreciated.

Nate: [ Laughs ] Exactly. So, it’s reassuring to be appreciated so fearlessly.

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Nate: I need people like her in my life.

Victor: Now, you know what she had to endure during her marriage with ashland locke.

Nate: Oh, I would never undermine her or the company in any way. Hell, she’d never allow it, neither would you.

Lily: Forget about my feelings about phyllis and summer and what they did, okay? What matters is you helping your sister get your mom back here to clear diane, okay? Do it for diane. Do it for yourselves. It’s the only way to move forward.

Daniel: Yeah. What mom did–

Lily: Let a judge and jury decide what should happen.

Daniel: There’s no way summer or mom are gonna let that happen.

Lily: Well, you know what? You’re not responsible for their choices. You’re responsible for your own. And that includes you mending things with your sister.

Daniel: Summer doesn’t want anything to do with me.

Lily: Why not?

Daniel: Because I opened the vault. I told everyone that mom was alive.

Lily: Yeah. You were just doing what you thought was best for your mom.

Daniel: Exactly. I mean, I thought michael could come up with a solid self-defense case while diane was being cleared of the charges against her.

Lily: Okay. Look, just let michael deal with the legal stuff. All that matters right now is you fixing things between the three of you. You will never regret giving someone forgiveness and grace because that’s who you are.

Summer: You know what? There’s a lot that I would do for you, a lot. Because you’re my mom and I love you, but I’m– I’m sorry you don’t get to dictate how I feel about your other child.

Phyllis: My other child? Seriously? You won’t even say his name? Summer, what is this? This is not nothing.

Summer: What we need to focus on right now is this mess that you’ve created.

Phyllis: That jeremy stark created. I was manipulated.

Summer: Yeah. Your husband.

Phyllis: Summer, I made a mistake.

Summer: Mom, this mistake– this mistake is gonna land you in prison if we don’t get this right.

Phyllis: That laptop right there, that’s gonna bolster my case.

Summer: Okay. Well, I would hope that you’d be doing more than online shopping on this thing, so it’s good.

Phyllis: I got that at a pawn shop.

[ Chuckles ] Ask me about the wisconsin penal code. I know it by heart, by the way.

Summer: Is there anything in there that would help you?

Phyllis: Well, I haven’t come up with anything yet, but I’m doing research on, you know, jeremy stark’s emails. I’m doing a deep dive.

Summer: Okay. Anything there that would prove your case?

Phyllis: To support my claim of self-defense? That’s what you mean, right?

Summer: Yes.

Phyllis: No, I haven’t found anything yet. Summer, I will. Summer, you gotta trust me. And we gotta think smarter. You know why?

Summer: Tell me.

Phyllis: Because the two of us together are way smarter than jeremy stark ever was. And there is something out there that will get me off the hook for this. I know it and we will find it.

Chance: The program from phyllis’s memorial was covered in prints. And miracle of all miracles, we managed to get dna results from the tear stains.

Christine: And what did they tell you?

Chance: Everything is a match for the deceased.

[ Diane sighing ]

Billy: Hi.

Diane: Hey.

Billy: How you doing?

Diane: I’m good. How about you?

Billy: Good. Good. Is, uh, is the man of the manor home?

Diane: Oh, no, no, no. He went off on an adventure.

Billy: An adventure? For what?

Diane: Oh, precious treasure. He’s buying me a book.

[ Laughs ] Can you imagine the sites he’s going to see today? People on the street enjoying their day, cars passing by. Bits of conversation that have nothing to do with my court case.

Billy: Sounds like you need to get out more.

Diane: Yeah. Tell it to my ankle monitor. So, what brings you by?

Billy: I just wanted to talk to jack, little bit of jabot business.

Diane: Oh. Well, tell me everything. How’s it going for you there?

Billy: Sounds like you’re running outta ways to spend your time, huh? You know, I have a whole list of podcasts you can listen to.

Diane: Oh, true crime? Not my thing f or obvious reasons.

Billy: That’s good. You’re still working on your gallows humor.

Diane: Yeah, it comes with the territory, you know?

Billy: So, what’s going on there? Any new developments?

Diane: Same old, same old. I am still innocent and I can’t wait for everyone else to know that too.

Billy: Well, how do we make that happen? Because if you don’t rise up out of this as a free woman, it could very well destroy my brother and quite possibly my entire family.

Victor: Well, nate, this has been edifying. Thank you for your candor.

Nate: It’s been my pleasure. I always enjoy spending time with you, victor, with the icon and with the man.

Victor: I’m sure we’ll see each other soon again?

Nate: Count on it.

Victor: All right.

Victoria: What did I miss?

Victor: What do you mean? What did– were you spying on us? You could have joined us.

Victoria: No, I wasn’T. I was walking back to the office and I saw the two of you talking. I didn’t wanna intrude. It looked important.

Victor: It was.

Victoria: Well, are you gonna tell me anything else about the results of your grilling?

Victor: Why do you always assume that I grill people? Can’t I just have a normal conversation with someone?

Victoria: [ Laughs ] No, not that I know of. So?

Victor: He’s all right. He’s a good guy.

Victoria: Yeah, he’s driven. He’s very ambitious.

Victor: Well, now those are qualities that I really appreciate, unlike your brother.

Victoria: But do you approve of us, daddy?

Victor: You don’t need my approval. Yes, I do.

Chance: So, they matched the dna from the tear stains to the blood sample that was recovered from the crash. And as for the prints–

Christine: Yeah. Well, for all the time she’s been brought up on charges, her fingerprints are definitely in the system.

Chance: A match.

Christine: So, what’s the rest of the bad news?

Chance: Since the programs from the memorial were printed after her death–

Christine: It can only mean one thing. Phyllis is alive. Oh, how I would love to get my hands on phyllis summers. Don’t you quote me on that.

Chance: Didn’t hear a thing.

Christine: I– I’m glad she’s alive, but I’ve never wanted to kill someone as much as I wanna murder her right now.

Chance: It was a lot simpler when she was dead. This is off the record, by the way.

Christine: Damn it, phyllis. This was supposed to be my great return to the prosecutor’s office, and she engineered this whole thing. What in the hell was she thinking? And now you’re telling me she did actually show up at her memorial? Think about that. She watched her family grieve and give their eulogies and cried. I mean, what kind of narcissistic, self-absorbed, twisted personality does such a thing?

Chance: She could have got the programs from stark.

Christine: Oh, and cried afterwards? Why? Because she was so moved by the type setting?

Chance: Maybe her conscience was getting to her after she thought about what she did.

Christine: I mean, think about it. She did all of this, all of it to make one woman suffer. It was vindictive. It was vicious. And if she went to all this trouble to fake her death, you can be damn sure she went to that memorial. She watched it play out. God, I wish I had thought and believed that phyllis was alive.

Chance: And the plan was for me to keep eyes on the suspect. I didn’t know I was supposed to watch out for the victim too.

Christine: You know what really gets me? All these big fish in the small pond, bending the law to fit their needs, they want us to protect them and give them resources when a crime is committed against them, but when they’re the ones that cross the line, no, they want us to look the other way. Well, forget it. I am gonna make sure they all get the justice they deserve.

Daniel: There is, uh, something that we haven’t discussed.

Lily: What is it?

Daniel: How good are you at keeping secrets?

Lily: Daniel, I’m not gonna say anything to anyone. I promise you.

Daniel: You have this quality that makes me wanna tell you things. I’m just wondering if I should ignore that voice in the back of my head.

Lily: Look, I am here to support you, but from what you told me, I’m not the only one who knows about this. So when it goes public, there will be fallout.

Daniel: Yeah, I know. I thought about that. No one’s gonna come out at this looking good, including me.

Lily: Look, I’m here for you, okay? I know who you are.

Phyllis: This is all extraordinary. All of these snacks.

[ Phyllis laughing ]

Summer: Guess everything tastes better when you’re in hiding.

Phyllis: Well, you know what? I was right when I called you my secret weapon. You are. You know all the foods that I love, even the products I love.

Summer: Mom, those are your products that you left at the grand phoenix when, you know.

Phyllis: Oh, when diane poisoned me and I died? Okay. Listen, I’m not trying to make a joke. I’m sorry. I’m sorry for what I did. And I want you to know I’m going to spend the rest of my very long life trying to make it up to you and your brother.

Summer: Focus on clearing your name so you actually can come back to life, okay? I didn’t do all of this just so you could go to prison.

Phyllis: All right. I’ll do my best.

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: But for the time being, this room, this is your prison cell, okay? Until further notice. I– I’m serious, mom. Don’t leave this room for any reason.

Phyllis: You don’t trust me?

Summer: No. Stay put.

Diane: She who laughs last laughs loudest. Just wait and see.

Billy: Do you have a judge in your pocket?

Diane: Better. I have truth on my side.

Billy: I’m sure half of the people in prison say the same thing, so… what is it? Do you know something that your lawyers don’t?

Diane: Just this, I have no intention of going to prison for phyllis’s murder. They’ll clear my name. They have to. My future with jack depends on it.

Christine: Phyllis and stark did all of this. They fabricated and planted the evidence that directed us right to diane.

Chance: Yeah, a lot of work went into this plan.

Christine: They had the entire town grieving. They exploited the services of the emergency medical team. And don’t even get me started on the storm they created at the morgue. It’s reprehensible and chance, it’s just the beginning.

Chance: Does this mean you’re buying the evidence?

Christine: I can’t ignore the obvious. Phyllis is alive and she has no idea what she’s unleashed.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Chloe: I have been manifesting good things all the way over. So tell me that we are popping a bottle of their finest sparkling cider because we are going to celebrate our–

Sally: Rejection. Sorry.

Chloe: Really?

Sally: Yeah.

Chloe: But we’re so good.

Sally: I know. I know.

Chloe: I mean, I got all beautiful for this.

Sally: Hey, a busy woman is a beautiful woman and that is the face that we have to put out to the world.

Chloe: Fake it ’til you make it.

Sally: Yes, employed or not, we have to stay in circulation and be seen by the people who are making things happen. Keep them wondering what we’re up to.

Chloe: Right. Yeah. I saw that hot design team out at the athletic club the other night.

Sally: Yeah, they must be celebrating getting a new client.

Chloe: Right, so we’re just practicing for success.

Sally: Yes, exactly. It is only a matter of time. In fact, you know what? Sparkling cider is on me.

Chloe: Smile.

Lily: Hello, ladies.

Devon: Hey.

Chloe: Lily, devon, hi.

Devon: It’s good to see you two.

Lily: Yeah, I’m so sad. We’re not gonna benefit from your design services in the near future.

Sally: I know. Not as sad as we are though.

Chloe: Past tense. Yeah, we are– we are really busy with other clients, like so busy. Just insanely busy.

Devon: That’s great.

Lily: Yeah, that’s amazing. Congrats. Okay, well, enjoy your evening.

Sally: You too. Bye.

Lily: Bye.

Devon: See you guys.

Chloe: Toodles.

Sally: Chloe?

Chloe: I panicked.

Sally: Oh, my god. What if they think we’re too busy to be working with chancellor-winters?

Chloe: Okay. Well, then we’ll just generously, you know, offer to fit them in. I’m manifesting.

Sally: Oh, my god. I hope so.

Chance: Hey.

Sharon: Hi. Are you still working? It’s late.

Chance: Yeah. Well, after a cup of your coffee, I’ll be ready to rock.

Sharon: Okay.

Chance: You keep them coming.

Sharon: I don’t want to go out on a limb here, but…

Chance: Oh? What about? Me?

Sharon: If you don’t mind.

Chance: Go for it.

Sharon: New evidence and you’re on the verge of making a very promising breakthrough. Am I right?

Chance: Give the lady a cigar.

Sharon: Well, here’s to taking chances. Helps you get closer to solving the case. Puts a little pep in your step and it reminds you why you became a detective in the first place.

Chance: Yeah, I tell you, all I need is a little time and the right test results and I could be on the road to solving this thing.

Nick: Christine. You’re working late.

Christine: Hey, nick. Yeah, phyllis has been taking up most of my time these days. I suppose you’ve been keeping up on the latest developments?

Nick: I, uh, only know what my daughter tells me. When I think about what happened to her mom…

Christine: You mean the murder?

Nick: I mean, she was one of a kind. It’s gonna be a long time before we get over losing her.

Summer: You must feel better now that you’ve had some food.

Phyllis: Yeah, I do. What would I do without you?

Summer: Let’s not even go there.

Phyllis: I mean it, summer. It’s like you’re my own personal emergency kit, and you’re on it. Seriously, you know how I feel and you can turn on a dime and you’re one step ahead of anyone who tries to best us.

Summer: Got lucky, I guess.

Phyllis: Well, I don’t know if I’m lucky, but you are my secret weapon, so that’s– that’s luck. Look at you, you’re a C.E.O. And a mom, a wife. Oh, and you are stronger and more fierce than you ever were, aren’t you?

Summer: Turns out helping your dead mother stay one step ahead of the police counts as cardio.

Phyllis: Okay. You’ve been through a lot the last few months.

Summer: Ever since italy, it feels like I’ve been to hell and back.

Phyllis: I’m sorry, I hate this. This is my fault. Imagine if you could get ahead of your ibs-C…

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Summer: I’m not pointing a finger at you.

Phyllis: I get it.

Summer: Do you, mom? Because I mean, you just disappeared from our lives without any warning. I mean, no chance to say goodbye. Daniel and I, we felt so guilty for the way that we treated you. I mean, all the things that we said to each other? My god, the things that I have said to diane, I– I thought that you were gone forever. I– I thought that you were dead in this horrific way. I–

Phyllis: I know, I’m sorry. You– you didn’t even get a chance to sort of work it out and move on, did you? And here I come back with this whole new mess. Oh, I should’ve stayed away. This was wrong.

Summer: No, mom. Don’t– don’t– don’t say that. Don’t– don’t think like that. I– I’m so happy that you’re here.

Phyllis: Yeah, I, yes I can see that.

Summer: Mom, I don’t know what to do. I don’t know how to act. I mean, yes, you’re alive, but I’ve got to keep it a secret. You can’t even leave this hotel room without being caught and prosecuted. There’s so many people out there that are still mourning your loss. I mean, you’ve turned our whole lives upside down.

Phyllis: I know, that’s what I do. I kind of turn lives upside down, don’t I? Listen, my heart goes out to every single person who I have affected by this. Mainly you and your brother. Please believe me when I say that I’m gonna spend every single day to try to make it up to you, but I came back because I saw how much pain you were in at that celebration of life and which wasn’t actually much of a celebration at all, was it?

Summer: You did what?

Phyllis: I was there. I mean, to hear yourself eulogized… oh, wow. It really puts things in perspective.

Sally: Lily and devon aren’t responsible for jill’s decision to put a pause on our plans with chancellor-winters. And she got word from victor not to give us that job the first time around.

Chloe: Yeah. I mean, your little bundle of joy’s good old granddad, he’s always sticking his nose in everyone else’s business. Better get used to that.

Sally: Okay. Focus with me on our future.

Chloe: Mm, do we have one?

Sally: Okay. We might not be on anyone’s top ten list yet, but we keep pitching ideas and putting ourselves out there, right?

Chloe: Yeah, out there, is right. We’ve been pitching to some pretty weird places, you’ve got to admit.

Sally: Okay. Well, that’s how we make a name for ourselves. Going where other designers fear to tread.

Chloe: Right. Beautifying one space at a time. I mean, even the unconventional.

Sally: Hey, especially those. What we could have done to that car repair waiting room, transformative.

Chloe: And don’t tell me our plans for the dental practice wasn’t next level.

Sally: Hey, a boutique clientele deserves high-end style.

Chloe: Yeah, but that’s the problem. No one can afford us.

Sally: I am not lowering my standards just to–

Chloe: What? Make a client happy or get our foot in the door so we can get this job going?

Sally: Are you saying I’m rigid?

Chloe: Would it have killed you to just accept nick’s offer to back our business?

[ Sally sighing ]

Nick: It doesn’t matter how old you are when you lose a parent, it changes you forever. When I look at what daniel and summer are going through, I just can’t help but wish they had more time with their mom.

Christine: Well, you’re a good dad, nick. I’m sure summer knows that you’re there for her.

Nick: I sure hope so.

Christine: Um, you know, I see a chance. I have to talk to him.

Nick: Oh, yeah. No worries.

Christine: If I can just leave you with one thing, I… just know, justice will be served.

Nick: I believe you. It’s good seeing you.

Christine: Yeah, take care.

Nick: What’s up, man?

Chance: Nick.

Sharon: How you doing?

Nick: Hanging in. How about you?

Sharon: Good. Well, better. I know you felt guilty about bringing up that wine stain on that bottle of champagne that showed up out of nowhere.

Nick: Yeah. Saying that it looked like blood, sorry.

Sharon: Yeah, it’s okay. We both know that was silly.

Nick: Well, I’m just glad you got rid of it.

Sharon: Yeah, I can buy my own champagne.

Nick: Of course, you can.

Christine: The message you left about finding new evidence.

Chance: It could be proof that phyllis is alive.

Christine: What kind of evidence are we talking about? Partial response: the first one to sit down hereighting with you like that.

Lily: What do you think dad would say if he were here right now?

Devon: Oh, he would say, “what took you so long? Let’s celebrate.”

[ Lily laughing ]

Lily: I hope you know, I really hated fighting with you like that.

Devon: Oh, yeah, I hated fighting with you too. We got through it though. And I know neil would be the first one to sit down here and say that he was the reason we got through it too.

[ Lily laughing ]

Lily: Oh, my god, he so would. And now look at us, we can do this. After the dinner I survived.

Devon: Um, who did you have dinner with?

Lily: Hm. Uh, daniel, lucy, chelsea, billy, johnny, connor.

Devon: Oh, that sounds fun. Dinner with your ex and his date and their kids.

Lily: Yep.

Devon: And daniel.

Lily: Yep.

Devon: How are you? What’s– what’s going on with the two of you these days? Is there anything I should know about?

Lily: No, no, no, not now. I mean, we could have maybe had something, but I think the timing is off.

Devon: I’m sure. I mean, losing a parent throws your whole world off.

Lily: And she was a powerhouse.

Devon: Yeah, I still can’t believe she’s gone.

Christine: So, nick newman is completely unaware that some of phyllis’s nearest and dearest are claiming that she’s still alive.

Chance: That’s interesting.

Christine: I mean, isn’t that information you tell your father? That phyllis still walks among us?

Chance: They got some complicated family dynamics at play right now. And after trauma like that, there is no normal, not for a while anyways.

Christine: So, what’s the latest?

Chance: So, I went to stark’s last known residence, a motel room where he was using an alias.

Christine: Oh, wait, please say that he left something in that room that we can use in court.

Chance: Nothing. I couldn’t get confirmation that the shower curtain was missing. A lot of the cleaning crew turn over there, but the shower curtains they have are the same type, same brand that stark’s body was wrapped in.

Christine: So really nothing.

Chance: Not exactly. I did find a program from phyllis’s memorial outside the room.

Christine: And that would interest me why?

Chance: This one was stained with what appears to be mascara-tinted tears.

Summer: You did what? You were– you were there. You– you saw what losing you did to us.

Phyllis: I needed to know.

Summer: You needed to know what? That your plan to make us suffer was a success?

Phyllis: No. No, I needed to see how my children felt about me. I needed to know that, summer. And I saw how much pain you were in. But I knew you had something up your sleeve because you had it at the jazz lounge. So, I knew you were working something and you were fierce. You were amazing. And you had diane on a hook and you kept on pushing and you didn’t let her go. And you pushed her to the breaking point.

Summer: Yeah. Well, I thought that she’d killed you.

Phyllis: Yeah. And finally, I won. But I lost my kids and I saw how much you guys were suffering. So, did I really win? You know, you needed your mother.

Summer: Of course we did.

Phyllis: So, I didn’t win, did I? And I was so vindictive and I was wrong. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry for what I did to our family. I’m so sorry.

Sally: I could have accepted nick’s offer.

Chloe: We’d be in business right now.

Sally: But I wanted to do this on our own.

Chloe: It’s just seed money. A few thousand to sprinkle around, help us grow. Branch out. Money is opportunity and protection. It’s a shield.

Sally: Yeah, you’re right. All across the board. And– and I would have loved to have taken the hand out.

Chloe: Okay, great. Well, then all you have to do is pick up the phone.

Sally: Okay, chloe, look at me. And please just try and see me like a newman would. All trust was gone after summer went to milan. And they choose to forget that I designed the most amazing wedding dress ever created for victoria. And then, I had the nerve to attempt a relationship with adam. And even though I put newman media on the path to success, now that I am pregnant with the newest newman, they’ve probably decided that I’m just going to use her as my meal ticket.

Chloe: Yeah, but it’s not like he’s going to invest in the company and then go tell his family that he did. I mean, they would never know.

Sally: But I would.

Chloe: He wants to give you this money because you’re good and because he believes in you.

Sally: I just don’t want to take advantage of my relationship with nick.

Chloe: Because of the baby?

Sally: Well, yes. Yeah. Yeah, because of the baby, but also because nick has a case of the l word.

Chloe: Love?

Sally: Nick told me that he is in love with me.

Chloe: Oh, that is so sweet and romantic and annoying because this explains the business decision. Um, well, congratulations. Really.

Nick: I’m just saying, the learning curve for somebody like sally is gonna be a lot steeper. She doesn’t have any family in town. I mean, she’s got chloe, but chloe’s got her own kids and is raising her own family. I don’t know. Who’s gonna teach her all the baby stuff? Sharon? What’s wrong? With moderate to severe plaque psoriasis,

Chloe: I can’t believe you didn’t lead with this. I mean, this is the good stuff. This is the stuff that we should be celebrating.

Sally: He turned my suite into a romantic oasis.

Chloe: Ah, no.

Sally: Candlelight, flowers and it was just the most amazing surprise.

Chloe: What a guy. You know, you should do something equally unexpected. You know, something that he’ll love as much as you loved your special evening.

Sally: What could I possibly do to top that?

Chloe: Take the money.

Sally: Oh, my god.

Chloe: I’m kidding. I mean, well kind of, I am. I look, I am so happy that one of you geniuses finally figured it out and spoke up the truth.

Sally: Oh, has it just been awful?

Chloe: Yeah, it’s been brutal. I mean, I’ve just been, like sitting there quietly just rooting for you guys. I mean, the amount of hours that I have spent talking to kevin about you and how I could just make love happen.

Sally: You’re a very dedicated partner and a loyal friend. So there’s only one way that I can pay you back.

Chloe: A raise?

Sally: Your freedom.

Chloe: Pardon me?

Sally: I’m letting you off the hook.

Chloe: I’m on a hook?

Sally: Look, you have been so good to me and you’ve held on through the ups and the downs and the sideways and any time that I wanted to give up, you were there to–

Chloe: Yeah, there to kick you in the derriere, which is what I’m about to do right now. Are you breaking up with me?

Sally: Look, I love you too much to just keep disappointing you.

Chloe: Wait– wait, are you saying this because we’ve been let down yet again? I mean, come on, I’m not just gonna scurry off because of that. I’m sorry, but I am made of much sterner stuff than that my friend.

Sally: So you’re still in?

Chloe: We’re a team.

Sally: Even though I won’t take nick’s offer.

Chloe: We don’t need it. We have something way more valuable than nick newman’s money.

Sally: Well, I’m dying to hear what this is.

Chloe: We have talent, tenacity, and a brilliant business plan. Jill loved it. I mean, that was before her budget came up and bit her on the bottom line.

Sally: So, our mission is to find someone who is visionary enough to hire us even though we have no track record?

Chloe: Fall in love with us, sight unseen.

Sally: Or we give an old option something new to see.

Lily: Hm. I have something in my car for you for my favorite nephew.

Devon: Oh, my gosh. Stop buying him stuff. You’re spoiling him.

Lily: What are you talking– you did the same thing with maddie and charlie. Oh, how’s the co-parenting thing going, by the way, with chance?

Devon: Uh, I’m assuming it’s going well because we have the nanny take care of the drop-offs and the pickups.

Lily: Oh, it must be nice to be rich.

Devon: You know what?

Lily: Must be nice.

Devon: You know what?

Lily: What?

Devon: You… you have no idea how much I missed you.

Lily: Oh, my god, I missed you too.

Devon: Mm-hmm. Kinda.

Chloe: Hi.

Sally: Hello.

Devon: Hey, you two. How are you doing?

Lily: Hello.

Chloe: You know, we were just saying how much we love this space, neil’s lounge.

Sally: Yeah. And how happy we are that you two could mend your business relationship.

Devon: Thanks.

Lily: Thank you. Yeah, we are too. Although, you didn’t have to come all the way over here to say that. What’s going on?

Sally: I’m glad you asked.

Chance: So, the single strand of red hair that jack and kyle find, we both know a judge could easily discount that. Hair travels. The wind, animals, clothing, you name it. We don’t know when it got there, how it got there, or how long it was there before jack and kyle found it. But how the hell could tears from the deceased show up on a program that was printed after her death?

Christine: We still don’t know that those tears are phyllis’S.

Chance: Testing for dna and checking for prints as we speak.

Christine: How soon ’til we get those results?

Chance: I called in a few favors.

Christine: I owe you.

Chance: Yeah, you do. So, what do you think?

Christine: Oh, god. Going to her own memorial? It’s exactly the kind of outlandish thing phyllis would do.

Nick: “Where heaven’s a little closer.”

Sharon: It’s the same handwriting that was on the note that came with the champagne bottle.

Nick: Are you sure about that?

Sharon: This is just another instrument of torture, don’t you see? Denver, colorado, where we met? The champagne bottle that I used when I hit him? The blood?

Nick: What are you saying?

Sharon: I didn’t want to speak the words out loud, but now…

Nick: You don’t think it could be…

Sharon: It has to be. This is from cameron kirsten. Trelegy for copd.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Sally: So, we are aware that chancellor-winters has run into some challenges recently.

Chloe: Some have been more difficult than others, but that’s how we grow. So, we have a new proposal.

Sally: It is time for reinvention.

Chloe: Reimagine, revamp.

Sally: Revitalize and renew. Your new gaming platform, omegasphere, is gaining a lot of your attention and you are going to have billions of eyes on you.

Chloe: Video games that are going to revolutionize the industry. And that demands offices that show the world, “this is where new and exciting things happen.” Because chancellor-winters, you are cutting edge. You are not afraid to make things happen.

Sally: It’s time to show the world the new chancellor-winters. New color schemes, fragrances.

Devon: Fragrances like perfumes?

Sally: Aromatherapy to help elevate the space. There’s nothing more powerful than sense memory. When you think chancellor-winters, you think chill, sexy, unforgettable aromas that make your employees feel like they’re enveloped and taken care of.

Chloe: We are ready to revolutionize and astonish.

Sally: Think vibrant.

Chloe: And sleek.

Sally: Comfortable, yet carefully curated.

Chloe: The more you give, the more you get.

Sally: And– and people are going to tell you, it’s not the right time. That you should wait and maybe it’s too expensive. But this is your opportunity to show the world that you’ve taken the lead and good luck catching uP.

Chloe: And we can start small. I mean, if you call redesigning genoa city’s headquarters a small feat, but that’s okay because we’ll just amaze you and then we’ll take over the world.

Sally: So, what do you think?

Summer: Daniel and I tried to help you. We– we didn’t know how.

Phyllis: I know. I know you didn’t know how, I understand. And then other people tried to help me, but I just saw all of their help as judgmental and that they were trying to correct me and– and I didn’t know what to do, you know. So, I just felt– I felt like everyone abandoned me and no one was helping me, for sure. And they– and they certainly weren’t gonna stop diane.

Summer: That’s when stark stepped in.

Phyllis: Yeah. And he saw how vulnerable I was and he weaponized me. I was alone and he understood and he seemed to care and he pushed my buttons. He knew exactly what to say to me. He came up with a plan and how could I say no?

Summer: He convinced you to fake your own death and frame diane.

Phyllis: So finally, everybody would see how dangerous diane is. But I brought this hellishness into our family.

Summer: I can’t let you do this. I can’t let you take all the blame.

Christine: So, let me know the minute those results come in.

Chance: I’m on it

Christine: And chance, thank you. Really, for all your hard work. This is my first case back as D.A. All eyes are gonna be on us.

Chance: I want this case resolved just as much as you do. Hey, we both want to get this one right.

Nick: No freaking way. There’s no signature, no return address.

Sharon: That’s his game. He is toying with me. He’s having his twisted brand of fun before he moves in for the kill.

For your most brilliant smile,

Devon: There must be some magic in dad’s room here because it’s happening again.

Lily: Agreeing?

Devon: Mm-hmm. It feels good too.

Lily: I mean, look at the terror in their eyes. I feel bad.

Devon: Maybe we should put them out of their misery.

Lily: Don’t say it that way.

Chloe: Okay. They’re waving us iN. They’re deciding our future right now. What do we do?

Sally: Just keep smiling and yeah, stay positive.

Chloe: Okay. Sometimes, I wonder how you work. Let’s just get this over with.

Lily: Sorry to keep you waiting.

Sally: No problem.

Chloe: Yeah, listen, if– if you want to talk some more later, we can come by bring you some new designs.

Devon: That’s not necessary at all because we’ve made a decision.

Sally: Or perhaps some other–

Lily: Well, look, we know that you’re busy with other clients.

Sally: Well, not super busy.

Chloe: Yeah, we could get rid of them. It’s really not a problem.

Lily: So… when can you start?

Chloe: Is– is that a yes?

Devon: It is, yeah.

Sally: It’s a yes.

Chloe: Okay, okay, this is the best decision you’ve made all day. You won’t regret it.

Lily: Well.

[ Sally laughing ]

Summer: There is more than enough blame to go around. You know, you needed my love and support. You needed somebody in your corner that was gonna say, “you know what? Diane is not trustworthy.” And she’s never gonna be my favorite person and she’s not even gonna ever be a decent mom.

Phyllis: Not a decent mom like me?

Summer: No, she could never be like you. I pushed you away when I should have kept you close, mom. You’d already lost so much. And I just– I couldn’t see it at the time and I’m just, I’m sorry.

Phyllis: No, it’s not your job to take care of me.

Summer: Yes, it is.

Phyllis: No, it’s not.

Summer: Yes, it is. We’re family. We’re a team, right? You’ve always had my back. I didn’t have your back and I mean, look at what happened, look at this mess. I– I should have done more.

Phyllis: Hey, I’m glad I have you now, okay?

Summer: Mom, you never lost me.

Phyllis: Yeah, but I’ll never be the kind of mom that I was before, you know, I was forced to…

Summer: Mom, you did what you had to do to stay alive.

Phyllis: I killed jeremy.

Summer: He was trying to kill you. It was self-defense.

Phyllis: It doesn’t matter. I killed him and by the way, the authorities, they won’t see it like that. They’ll think that I tried to cover it up after I faked my own death.

Summer: Shady, maybe, but I don’t know how illegal that is. I mean, look, you– you faked your death at his urging, right? With his assistance.

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness. Look what I’m doing to you. I’m putting you in the position where you’re aiding and abetting. No, I can’t do this. Oh, my gosh, I can’t do this.

Summer: Mom, I want to help you.

Phyllis: I know– I know you want to help me. See, I know that. This is how you’re gonna help. You’re gonna leave here, you’re gonna go home and you’re gonna take care of your family, all right? I don’t want to get you involved.

Summer: It’s a little late for that.

Phyllis: Okay, what do you want me to do? You want me to hide out in the room and run from the police and just so you can maybe visit me in jail? Or you get charged for aiding and abetting and they’re– we’re in the same prison, maybe and–

Summer: Okay, please stop talking like this, please.

Phyllis: If you want to help, go home and take care of your family. Take care of daniel, please. And I will keep watching you from afar. And I will never stop loving you and your brother, ever. But I have to stay away. I have to, I have to, summer.

Summer: No, mom. I’m sorry, but you don’t get to tell me how to handle this. Walking away now, it’s not an option.

Nick: If this psycho is contacting you–

Sharon: Well, we don’t really know that it’s from him.

Nick: Sharon, you just said–

Sharon: I know. I said that both items came from cameron, but that was just a knee-jerk response. You know, a traumatic experience like that, it never really goes away, so some of the old fears cropped up again for a second. But who knows? This could just be some sort of coincidence.

Nick: I trust your instincts and you should too. If something about this feels off, then it probably is.

Sharon: You’re right. But we need more to go on than just gut instinct. We need facts.

Nick: I think it’s time we bring chance in on this.

Sharon: Yes. Good.

Nick: Hey, uh, when you get a minute.

Chance: Yeah, absolutely. I used to pre-rinse dishes cause my old detergent

Sally: I can’t tell you how excited we are to be working with chancellor-winters on this project. And I promise, you will not be disappointed.

Lily: I know, we expect nothing less than your best.

Sally: Well, count on us to deliver.

Lily: And speaking of deliveries, where are we in terms of completion?

Sally: Well, I haven’t had a chance to look at our calendars yet, but rest assured, this baby will not delay us.

[ Lily chuckling ]

Lily: Oh, you’re being serious?

Sally: Yeah, I’ve always been a hard worker, committed and focused.

Lily: And no baby is gonna change that, right? Look, I’m not– I’m not trying to scare you. I mean, the changes are amazing and it is so worth it. But, you know, it’s– it’s a lot.

Sally: Yeah, I’ve– I’ve just been so focused on being pregnant, I guess I haven’t really gotten into how to be a mom yet.

Lily: I know. Well, everyone’s gonna tell you that it’s magical and it’s intense, which is true. It is. Right, ’cause all of a sudden you have this human that you’re responsible for. To keep them happy and healthy, but you will also experience a love that you couldn’t imagine. And all you want to do is just protect them from the world because you know what it’s like out there. But then you have to trust that you brought them up to be strong and you have to let them go, and you do.

Sally: You miss them, don’t you?

Lily: Yeah, of course, I do. They’re a part of me. You know, when they have joy, I have joy, when they hurt…

Sally: You hurt.

Lily: Yes. But it is worth it, every second.

Sally: And what about your work? Your career?

Lily: You’ll be fine. You’ll figure it out. There’s a balance, right? You– you’ll know what to do. But also, you have to ask for help. You do. Yes, you do. So repeat after me, I will ask–

Sally: Ask for help whenever I need it.

Lily: Yes, you’re gonna do great. Don’t let me down.

Sally: I will not.

Lily: Okay.

[ Sally sighing ]

Summer: Look, I– I know that I haven’t always been there for you, but I am here now, okay? For us.

Phyllis: This is us now.

Summer: Yes. Whatever happens to you, it happens to me. I think I forgot that for a second. But mom, whatever you need from me, support, evidence, unconditional love, snacks, whatever it is, I am here for you and I am not going anywhere.

Chance: What’s going on? Is everything okay?

Sharon: You don’t need to know all the awful details, but years ago, a man went to prison for some things that he did to me and some others.

Chance: Well, I’m sorry to hear that.

Sharon: Well, I’ve got the feeling that he might be trying to get back in touch.

Chance: Would you like me to look into it?

Sharon: Please.

Nick: Anything you can find.

Chance: Just give me a name.

Receptionist: Your key card, mr. Kirsten.

Cameron: Please, call me cameron.

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless…

Nate: Is this a meeting about newman media or is this a barbecue and I’m what’s on the grill?

Chance: I got news about kirsten. It’s not great.

Cameron: Are you faith newman?

Faith: I am. Do I know you?

Summer: I do know that, it’s the only way that I’m gonna get through any of this.

Sharon: Good. It’s important to remember. What can I get you?

Summer: Um, two large coffees and like a bag full of carbs, please.
[Summer sighing] What is it?

Sharon: Just the way you said a bag of carbs just now reminded me of Phyllis. And that’s– it’s a good thing. You know, it may not seem like it yet, but eventually you’ll get to the place where you’re very grateful for all the ways that you’ve learned how to keep her memory alive.

Summer: Yeah, I know my mom isn’t fading away any time soon.


Lucy: So, Lily gave me the lowdown on the way here, but I feel like I only got half the story.

Johnny: Okay. Well, um, so Connor and I are brothers but our mom’s only raising him.

Lucy: And that’s Chelsea?

Johnny: And I have a different mom who was married to Billy, my dad, but then they got divorced. And now I live with her and my sister, Katie.

Connor: His dad and lily were a couple, but now he’s dating my mom. Plus, I’m getting a new baby sister. My dad, Adam, and his ex-girlfriend, sally, who’s now a couple with my uncle nick, which is messed up, but after a while, it’s like whatever.

Lucy: Most families I know are like this, all blended and mixed up. It’s kind of the way things are now.

Johnny: Facts.

Lucy: My bio mom was pretty messed up, so dad didn’t stay with her for too long, thank god. So, dad and heather raised me, but then they broke up and she and I live in Portugal. So, I don’t get to see my dad all too often. See, we’re all kind of in this weird messed-up club.

Connor: That’s cool. So can you speak Portuguese?

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Summer: You have ruined everything for mom. If the police take this seriously, then they’re gonna look for her and if they find her, they’re gonna throw her in prison before she has a chance to clear herself.

Daniel: But on the flip side, diane will be out from underneath a murder wrap and she’ll be free to live her life again.

Summer: It’s not a fair trade.

Daniel: Is it fair for us to keep sitting on this secret? Is it fair to keep lying to kyle?

Summer: I don’t know. I wish that I had all the answers, but I don’T. I have been trying to get in touch with mom on the number that she used to set up that meeting with me. I’ve left her messages, I get no response. I’m worried that she already knows that you’ve told half of genoa city and you’ve scared her away.

Daniel: I have told the people that need to know in order to get her the help she needs to come home.

Summer: You keep telling yourself that. I’m gonna live in reality where you have just made everything worse.

Lily: Hey, stranger.

Daniel: Hey, when did you get back?

Lily: I just got back from the airport right now. Come here.

Lucy: Oh, welcome back, lily. Dad must’ve missed you.

[ Lily chuckling ]

Devon: Uh, it was nice of the nanny to be able to stay late so we can have some time together.

Abby: Yeah, I agree.

Devon: Uh-oh. I recognize that look and that tone of yours. What’s wrong with you?

[ Abby sighing ]

Abby: I’m looking forward to a relaxing evening, but something is bothering me, a lot.

Devon: What’s bothering you a lot?

Abby: It’s about my mom and your dad.

Devon: Okay. I know you’ve been worried about them for a while now.

Abby: But now, I’m worried that she’s thinking about marrying him.

Tucker: Sorry to put you on the spot like that.

Ashley: You’re not. I mean, you kind of are, but that’s okay.

Tucker: Well, you did proclaim your love for me in front of jack and diane, rather loudly in fact. And then you informed them of our engagement without warning me first. So, I thought I played along rather brilliantly.

Ashley: You were good.

Tucker: If I must say so myself.

Ashley: You were terrific.

Tucker: And I– I know for you it’s just an act, but are any of the emotions behind it real? Because I– I think I deserve to know where things stand.

Ashley: You’re right, you do. You deserve to know how I feel.

Christine: Hey, I just wrapped up in court when I got your text. Do you have good news for me?

Chance: These days, I don’t really know the difference between good news and bad news.

Christine: Okay. Well, let me rephrase the question. Do you have anything to bolster my case against diane?

Chance: The evidence I’ve seen actually points in the opposite direction.

Christine: Evidence? From jack? Well, I guess his phone call really got to you the other day.

Chance: I heard him out.

Christine: And?

Chance: Well, what he found isn’t enough to close the case, but it did confirm my hunch that there could be more to this.

Christine: As in phyllis is still alive, watching diane twist in the wind?

Chance: Look, christine, if there is something going on, I want to find it. Either way, we should put our doubts to rest, don’t you think? Or are you gonna convince me not to investigate?

Summer: Hi there.

Sharon: Hi, you. It’s good to see you. I’ve been thinking about you. How’s everything going?

Summer: Oh, you know, some good days, some bad days.

Sharon: Well, that’s to be expected. As long as you know that you have a very large and caring support group. There’s a lot of people who love you, summer.

Summer: I do know that, it’s the only way that I’m gonna get through any of this.

Sharon: Good. It’s important to remember. What can I get you?

Summer: Um, two large coffees and like a bag full of carbs, please.

[ Summer sighing ] What is it?

Sharon: Just the way you said a bag of carbs just now reminded me of phyllis. And that’s– it’s a good thing. You know, it may not seem like it yet, but eventually you’ll get to the place where you’re very grateful for all the ways that you’ve learned how to keep her memory alive.

[ Phyllis exhaling ]

Victor… why are you still

living with odors?

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Lily: I’m really sorry you had to see that.

[ Lily laughing ] That kiss was me missing your dad, not the other way around.

Daniel: Not that I didn’t miss you.

Lucy: Oh, good one. Right answer, dad.

Lily: So your dad told me that you were back in town. Can I take you guys to dinner tonight, maybe?

Daniel: Uh, no, actually the kid here and I, we already have plans.

Lucy: Wait, you should totally come with us.

Lily: Okay. Where am I going?

[ Lucy and daniel laughing ]

Daniel: I promise you, you’re gonna remember that you already have plans when I tell you what it is.

Lily: Oh, is it that bad?

Daniel: It’s dinner at society with johnny, connor, chelsea, and billy.

Lily: Um, that’s random. How did that happen?

Daniel: That is a very good question.

Lucy: Wait, what am I missing here?

Daniel: I promise the three of us will all go to dinner real soon.

Lucy: Oh, dad, come on.

Lily: I would be honored to come.

Daniel: Well, that doesn’t sound like sarcasm.

Lily: Well, no, it’s not. I– I’ll go, I mean, we can all be adults, right? It’s fine.

Lucy: Wait, be adults about what? Someone tell the kid what’s going on.

Lily: It’s fine. I will fill you in when we are on our way there. Let’s go.

Christine: So this strand of long red hair that jack found, how are we supposed to know it came from stark’s motel room? Is there security footage to back him up?

Chance: No.

Christine: Cell phone video? Anything? Are we just supposed to take jack’s word for it?

Chance: I poked the same holes in jack’s story, but something’s not sitting right with me. I want to follow up on it. I want to check out the motel room myself.

[ Christine sighing ]

Christine: Well, look, chance I can’t tell you to walk away from this because you’re not my direct report. And, I’m not gonna try and talk you out of it because I know how you are.

Chance: What’s that? Pigheaded?

Christine: Uh, tenacious. But I do trust your instincts. Look, the new chief won’t be too pleased if he thinks you’re taking time away from other cases.

Chance: It’s not gonna happen. I’m not even on duty right now.

Christine: Okay. Yeah, I don’t need to know how you’re gonna go about it, just tell me whatever I need to know, if anything comes up.

Chance: You’ll be the first.

Ashley: Must have been very strange and very confusing to hear me speaking so passionately and loudly about our love and our bond. I’m sorry about that. And I’m sorry that I can’t tell you what you want to hear.

Tucker: I see.

[ Tucker sighing ] So, we’re still in the friend zone then?

Ashley: Well, obviously we’re more than friends.

Tucker: How much more?

Ashley: Well, I’m attracted to you. What? Well… I like spending time with you.

Tucker: That’s sweet. Is there anything else?

Ashley: Every day, I trust you a little bit more. Every day, I feel like my heart is opening up a little bit wider. But as far as telling you, I love you the way a wife should tell her husband that she loves him, I– I– you’re asking too much of me.

Abby: My uncle jack was already in a sour mood when I got there, and then I asked to see my mom and he told me that she was out with tucker and that they have some big news to share.

Devon: What kind of big news?

Abby: I don’t know. Maybe it has something to do with this fake engagement. That would explain my uncle jack’s irritation.

Devon: Yeah, I still don’t know what to make of that. It’s weird.

Abby: I do, it’s insane. She’s clearly lost her mind.

Devon: I don’t know if I’d go that far. Your mom’s one of the sharpest people I know. But if she’s starting to trust tucker, maybe he’s giving her a reason to.

Abby: Or maybe he has her fooled. Look, I want to think that he is a changed man, that he’s evolved. Not only for our sake, but especially for our son’S.

Devon: But you’re worried if we let him in our life–

Abby: That he’s gonna disappoint us again. And when he skips town, like he always does, dominic is gonna lose his grandfather.

Devon: Right. No, I thought about that a lot too. And honestly, I don’t know if I believe his retirement story.

Abby: What do you mean?

Devon: I don’t think he can do it.

Abby: Well, I mean, he doesn’t have to work. He has enough money after selling mccall.

Devon: It’s not about the money. I don’t know if he’s able to actually live life without having action in it. I don’t know if he’s capable of that. Like hell, he could have some corporate scheme going on right now that we don’t see coming. And your mom’s the key to it. With moderate to severe plaque psoriasis,

Summer: Thank you.

Sharon: Any time. Summer, wait, you have change.

Summer: For the tip jar.

Chance: Oh, whoa, whoa, easy.

Summer: Oh, my god. I’m so sorry.

Chance: That’s, uh, not all for you, is it?

Summer: No, it’s uh, it’s for my team at marchetti. I want to show them that I haven’t forgotten about them. Some things need to go back to normal. Um, has there been any news?

Chance: The investigation into your mother’s death has officially been closed.

Summer: Okay, but unofficially, things are happening?

Chance: I’m trying to make some progress today. If anything solid develops, we’ll talk.

Summer: What do you mean, by progress?

Chance: I’m turning over every stone. So, trust me.

Summer: Okay. So, I’ll just wait to hear from you.

Sharon: My heart really goes out to her. She and phyllis were so close. But what can I get for you?

Chance: I’ll just do the usual. Make it a large though.

Sharon: Sure. Um, but first, do I by any chance owe you a thank you?

Billy: This is perfect. I’ll sit over here by chels and then you two– you can put that away, huh. Thank you very much.

Daniel: Hey, hey, look who I found wandering the streets,

Chelsea: Lily, hi.

Lily: Hi, how are you?

Chelsea: I’m doing well. How are you?

Lily: I’m good. Got back from new york, but happy to be home. So, you don’t mind that I’m crashing your party, do you?

Billy: No, no, not at all. Happy for you to join.

Lily: Okay, good, ’cause I’m starving.

Chelsea: We’ll just get you another place setting.

Lily: Okay.

Billy: Yeah, that’ll be a lot of bodies around this table, but uh…

Daniel: Do you want to just push two of them together?

Billy: Yeah, let’s do that.

Johnny: Or we can have two separate tables, adults here, kids there.

Lucy: I love it.

Connor: Okay by me.

Billy: Okay then.

Lily: Okay, well, this is fun, right?

Abby: So this so-called engagement, you think it’s part of tucker’s plan?

Devon: I think that we should wait and see if they’re actually engaged because we’re just speculating at this point.

Abby: They live together. He’s already proposed. It doesn’t sound speculative to me.

Devon: I guess not.

Abby: So what if my mom accepts? Whether it’s to mess with diane or if it’s actually real. And then what? They get remarried and he’s in the perfect position to hurt her again?

Devon: I just– I– I don’t think she’s gonna let that happen, abby. And I thought that you were warming up to tucker after you guys danced together the other night.

Abby: I probably was. But hell, maybe that’s a part of this whole scheme. He’s charming. He gets you to let your guard down and that, that is when he strikes.

Devon: Right. Well, the only thing we’re gonna be able to do is wait and see what happens.

Abby: And wait, back to this whole retirement thing.

Devon: What?

Abby: I mean, you’re right, a guy like tucker, he doesn’t just sell his company and then walk away. What if he is gonna go after jabot again?

Devon: I mean, that sounds like something the old tucker would’ve done.

Abby: Exactly, yes. He has gone after jabot before and if that is what he is going after again, I am not gonna let that happen. I will crush him first.

Tucker: You really are my better angel, you know that?

Ashley: Please don’t go that far.

Tucker: No, I am going that far.

Ashley: Stop it.

Tucker: Don’T. I’m never gonna give up on you, on us, ever. I just wish that… I wish you could love me for who I am instead of what I could be.

Phyllis: Hey.

Summer: Oh, my goodness!

Phyllis: Baby girl, there you are.

[ Phyllis laughing ] My a1c was up here; now, it’s down with rybelsus.

Johnny: And they’re paying.

[ Kids laughing ]

Lily: Ooh, they have that parmesan crusted halibut that I like, I’m gonna get that.

Daniel: I am trying to decide between the steak frites and the paella.

Lily: Um, do the steak frites and then you can have your fries.

Daniel: Done. What about an appetizer? Should we, um, should we get an artichoke dip? Split it for the table?

Billy: I don’t know. What looks good?

Chelsea: Everything.

Billy: I know the feeling.

Lily: Oh, come on. You’re gonna get your favorite, the crab enchiladas.

Chelsea: That’s your favorite?

Billy: Yeah, it used to be.

Johnny: Okay. Three burgers, tots, onion rings, bucket.

Connor: Love it.

Lucy: Love it.

Chelsea: Oh, sorry. It took me so long to decide.

Lily: That’s okay.

Daniel: It’s fine.

Billy: So, how’s charlie in new york?

Lily: Um, he’s good. He’s really good.

Billy: That’s terrific.

Chelsea: Did you do any shopping while you were there?

Lily: I didn’T. I had meetings and, you know, hung out with charlie, so that’s it.

Billy: You see any shows?

Lily: No, it was a pretty quick, in-and-out trip.

Daniel: Well, that’s a shame. I heard they’re reviving sweeney todd. It’s always fun.

Lily: Oh, sounds fun.

Billy: Yeah. Maybe not for lily. She doesn’t like musicals much.

Lily: Well, I don’t know. I could make an exception for sondheim.

Daniel: Lady has taste.

[ Lily chuckling ]

Lucy: So lily gave me the lowdown on the way here, but I feel like I only got half the story.

Johnny: Okay. Well, um, so connor and I are brothers but our mom’s only raising him.

Lucy: And that’s chelsea?

Johnny: And I have a different mom who was married to billy, my dad, but then they got divorced. And now I live with her and my sister, katie.

Connor: His dad and lily were a couple, but now he’s dating my mom. Plus, I’m getting a new baby sister. My dad, adam, and his ex-girlfriend, sally, who’s now a couple with my uncle nick, which is messed up, but after a while, it’s like whatever.

Lucy: Most families I know are like this, all blended and mixed up. It’s kind of the way things are now.

Johnny: Facts.

Lucy: My bio mom was pretty messed up, so dad didn’t stay with her for too long, thank god. So, dad and heather raised me, but then they broke up and she and I live in portugal. So, I don’t get to see my dad all too often. See, we’re all kind of in this weird messed-up club.

Connor: That’s cool. So can you speak portuguese?

[ Lucy laughing ]

Chance: I’m not sure I understand. Uh, thank you for what?

Sharon: Well, I received this bottle of champagne. Um, kind of a cryptic note. No signature.

Chance: Oh, okay. That’s odd.

Sharon: Nick advised me to just get rid of it, but first I wanted to see if you had sent it, but it sounds like you did not.

Chance: No, I’m so sorry. I wish I could take credit for that. I’ll tell you though, once things cool down at work, I’ll send you five champagne bottles. We can toast with that, okay?

Sharon: I like that.

Chance: It is kind of creepy though, getting a gift anonymously like that. You want me to look into it? I am a detective.

Sharon: No, no, no, no, it’s, um, it’s fine. I’m sure it’s fine.

Chance: Okay. Well, I’ll tell you what, if anything else comes up that troubles you, you let me know and I’ll handle it. Right now though, I got to take off. I gotta follow up on this investigation.

Sharon: Understood. Um, don’t let me keep you. I’ll see you later?

Chance: Count on it.

Phyllis: Did anybody see you come up here?

Summer: No, I was very careful. Nobody followed me.

Phyllis: Okay.

Summer: How has nobody followed you?

Phyllis: Well, I mean, did you know it was me when I slipped the key card in your pocket?

Summer: When did you do that, by the way?

Phyllis: I followed you for blocks and then you stopped and you looked at those shoes in the window at memoirs. That’s when I did it.

Summer: I brought you food.

Phyllis: Oh, good.

Summer: I didn’t know if you had been hiding in an alley or eating out of a dumpster–

Phyllis: Eating out of a dumpster? My goodness, your mother is more resourceful than that. Plus, um, jeremy made sure that I was financially set up to– to go anywhere. You know, far away if I wanted.

Summer: Well, still… you know, mom, this is really risky. You being in genoa city like this with all the charges that you could be facing.

Phyllis: I know that. I can’t run. I can’t be away from you. I saw how much pain you were in. I can’t do that to you. Right. I mean, what kind of mother can leave her children?

Summer: It would be okay, you know. I really just want you to be safe, even if that meant that you had to disappear for a long time.

Phyllis: No, I’m not gonna do that. You know, you’re much more brave than I am. You know that? It killed me to be away from you and your brother. And let me tell you something, I will never ever abandon you two again.

What are folks 60 and older

up to these days?

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Ashley: But for now, maybe we should just focus on our fake engagement. Yeah. I mean, I think we need to be convincing, right? Because clearly jack and diane are a little skeptical and I probably shouldn’t have blurted it out, but I got caught up in the moment. But now we have to prove that we’re serious and I have some thoughts.

Tucker: Such as?

Ashley: I think we should start some extravagant wedding planning, right? And talk about all of our plans ad nauseam in front of jack and diane, right? We can make little goo-goo eyes at each other and just, you know, do that whole thing.

Tucker: So what’s your definition of extravagant? Just so we’re on the same page.

Ashley: Want to get married in a castle? Right? That could be fun. We could just arrive in a horse-drawn carriage. You could be black tie, I’ll be in an elaborate wedding gown, some horrible gown. That’s it really. Because then we can also talk about our fantastic honeymoon. You want to go to copenhagen, the countryside, see the northern lights maybe?

Tucker: I wanna do anything you want to do. Really, I’m open to anything.

Ashley: You seem a little smug.

Tucker: No, I’m riveted.

Ashley: What are you riveted by?

Tucker: Riveted by you. You just put so much thought into it already. I know that you’re not– you’re not there in the, uh, in the love department yet. It just seems like there’s at least a part of you that wants it to be real.

Abby: I swear to god, if that man comes near my family’s company–

Devon: Babe, babe, don’t stress about something that hasn’t happened yet. I didn’t mean to get you all riled up about this. I really didn’T. Even though I love seeing your feisty side, along with all your other sides.

Abby: Nice try, but you’re not gonna flirt me out of worrying about my mother. If tucker is winning her over, if your instincts are correct, we have to do something to protect her, fast.

Devon: Okay. Well, I might just have a way to do that.

Summer: Mom, this feels so good. It’s so good to just catch up with you.

Phyllis: Yeah, it’s amazing.

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: I have a lot that I need to tell you. It’s not good.

Phyllis: All right, let’s hear it.

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: I told daniel the truth. I felt like I had to.

Phyllis: I know you did. I called him. I had to hear his voice.

Summer: He knew that that was you.

Phyllis: Yeah, he knew it was me. Um, he just kept on pleading with me not to be mad at you for telling him and, summer, how could I be mad at you? I put you in an impossible situation. But I needed to hear his voice. How is daniel? I miss him. I’m missing him. I just want to tell him I love him. That’s all.

Summer: I know, mom, but I guarantee you you’re not gonna like what he’s done.

Phyllis: Okay. What has he done?

Summer: You were right to be wary of confiding in him. He…

Phyllis: He told people I’m alive.

Summer: Yeah. He told jack, michael, kyle. Jack told christine. Christine told chance, diane knows, lucy knows. Mom, it’s out of control.

Phyllis: Christine and chance. Do they believe that I’m alive?

[ Chance kissing his teeth ]

Chelsea: With all the troubled kids and teens out there, a game like this seems like a natural fit.

Lily: Yeah. And I think we do a teen version at first, but then maybe have a module where there’s parental controls to make it for younger kids.

Billy: Well, all this shop talk has got me craving sugar. Who’s up for dessert?

Johnny: Imagine having an entire video game based on you. That is so cool.

Lucy: My dad was kind of in a slump, as an artist. So, I’m really glad he was able to pivot to this.

Johnny: My mom says pivot a lot.

Connor: So does mine. Is that something adults do? They just pivot all the time?

Johnny: Basically.

Lucy: For me, it was my boarding school teacher. It was pivot this, pivot that, all day long.

Johnny: Until your eyes glazed over.

Lucy: Totally.

Chelsea: Lucy is so charming. I’m sure it’s comforting having her here during such a difficult time.

Daniel: It’s always nice having her around, even without a death in the family.

Chelsea: Yeah. No, I– I– I imagine it would be.

Billy: Yeah, selfishly. I don’t like it when johnny and katie are far away, you know. It doesn’t feel right.

[ Kids laughing ]

Lily: Well, they seem to know what they’re doing. Maybe we should follow their lead?

Chelsea: Actually having fun?

Lily: Yeah, worth a try, right?

[ Kids laughing ]

Billy: Well, let’s get some dessert, huh? Nothing more fun than a slab of chocolate cake and four forks.

Daniel: I love cake, I’m in.

Lucy: My boarding school’s okay. I made some friends there, but for the most part, it’s kind of lame.

Connor: Mine had a gazillions of rules, who can remember them all?

Lucy: Did you get in trouble a lot?

Connor: Some, I was glad to come home.

Lucy: I’m sure.

Connor: Although, I got sent there because my parents needed me out the way.

Johnny: Same. They say it’s for continuity and stability. I mean, they’re not really wrong ’cause stuff at home can change every five minutes.

Lucy: You and katie went to boarding school too?

Johnny: Hasn’t everyone? But recently, my parents have been more interested in sending me to my grandparents’ house, so.

Connor: Mine too. I can always tell when they’re having issues based on how often I get dropped at the ranch.

Summer: That’s your only question? Mom, I thought that you were gonna be furious.

Phyllis: Well, I’m upset that daniel blabbed. Of course, I am, but what’s done is done. I mean, that’s why I didn’t tell daniel, by the way. Let me ask you something. Is there a full-blown manhunt for me?

Summer: Christine doesn’t believe that you’re actually alive.

Phyllis: Of course, she doesn’t because she’s overjoyed at the idea that I might be dead. Why look for me? I guess all the years of pain and hell that I put that bug through paid off.

Summer: But jack, kyle, and michael, they’re still determined to prove that you are alive.

Phyllis: Of course they are because for them, it’s not about me. It’s about her.

Summer: Yeah, if you’re alive then diane’s free.

[ Phyllis scoffing ] And what kind of milk?

Chelsea: It sounds like you were having fun.

Johnny: Oh, yeah, definitely.

Lucy: It was really great meeting you, johnny, connor.

Connor: You too. It was great.

Lily: We’ll have to do it again sometime.

Connor: That’d be awesome.

Chelsea: Sounds like a plan.

Johnny: Oh, can i have your phone so that we’ll have each other’s numbers?

Lucy: Yeah, totally.

Johnny: Great. Thank you. And it is done. Oh, we have to hang out while you’re still in town.

Billy: You ready to get going? School night, we should get back to mom. You, uh, you okay? You need a ride home.

Chelsea: Oh, thanks, but no, we’re good. It’s such a nice night, I think we’re gonna walk.

Billy: That sounds nice. Okay, I will talk to you later.

Lily: I have to meet devon at the lounge, but, um, thank you guys for letting me tag along.

Billy: Yeah, it was really nice to see you.

Johnny: Okay, we will be out front.

Lucy: Yeah. Good night everybody.

Lily: Good night.

Daniel: We’ll talk tomorrow.

Chelsea: Sounds like a plan.

Billy: See you later.

Chelsea: Okay, bye. Are you okay? It seemed like you were having fun. Did something happen?

Connor: It was fine. Can we go home now?

Billy: Nice to see you both.

Lily: Yeah, you too.

Daniel: This was a nice distraction.

Billy: I’m glad you have lily’s friendship, especially now during your time of loss. Okay. Good night.

Lily: Good night.

Daniel: Night.

Ashley: Well, clearly there’s a difference between fantasizing about a wedding and fantasizing about a wedding to you.

[ Tucker chuckling ]

Tucker: I see. So all these– these specific ideas you’ve envisioned, don’t include me standing next to you at the altar?

Ashley: I asked you to move in with me because I wanted things to work out. I think they’re kind of working out, don’t you? So it’s not outside the realm of possibility that the– the rest of it could work out.

Abby: So, what are you thinking? How do we get out in front of this?

Devon: I’m thinking that I simply get closer to tucker. And I build up our relationship because I know he’s been dying to have this father-son bond with me and maybe if we have it, he might slip and say something and I can figure out what’s really going on.

Abby: You would do that for me?

Devon: I’d do anything for you.

Abby: Hm. We really are family. You’re even worried about my mom.

Devon: She’s family, of course, I am. And I also, I’m worried about you. I don’t want to see you stressed like you’ve been. So, if there’s anything I can do to help, I’m gonna do it. And if it turns out that he is playing your mom or if he’s going after jabot, I can crush him and you won’t have to do anything.

Chance: Hey, it’s chancellor. Give me forensics. Hi, maggie, it’s chance. How you doing? Yeah. Good, good, good. I got a question for you. I know we can get fingerprints off of a paper, but what if the paper’s been sitting around in the garbage for a few weeks? Okay. Let me ask you something else. Can we get dna off of a tear stain? Really? Even if there’s mascara in it? Okay. I’ll see you in a bit.

Phyllis: Okay, so if the D.A. Doesn’t believe I’m alive, that buys me time.

Summer: Daniel did me one favor.

Phyllis: What’s that?

Summer: When he confessed everything, he kept my name out of it. He said that you contacted him, not me.

Phyllis: Oh, well, I’m sure that’s a relief for you because if your husband finds out that you’re protecting your own mother over his mother–

Summer: Yeah, I know, mom. I know. I know how bad that would be, but daniel, he’s boxed me in with another lie and he’s put you even more at risk.

Phyllis: Listen, that’s why I didn’t tell him. I knew what he would do. I’m not gonna hold it against him.

Summer: What are you saying?

Phyllis: Uh, I want to see daniel. I want to give him a hug. You know, I want to see my son.

Summer: Mom, if daniel knows where you are, he’s gonna go straight to the police. He has convinced himself that that is the only solution to any of this, so no, daniel doesn’t get to see you. Not until we know that you are gonna be just as free as diane

Phyllis: Summer.

Summer: No, mom! We are doing this my way. You have already made my life complicated enough, okay? Just please listen to me on this and stay away from daniel. Don’t fight me, please.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Victoria: Now that we’ve broken ground on the semiconductor plant in hai phong, I would love to end our relationship with our partners in shanghai. They’re more focused on performance instead of security. And I think that’s a mistake given the current market changes.

Nikki: I thought you might feel that way. I already have the contract under review, so we can consider our options.

Victoria: Oh, of course, you have.

[ Laughs ] So, where do we stand with the deal in dubai?

Nikki: We’re right where we need to be. We expect to close next week.

Victoria: Mom, why are you staring at me? Something wrong?

Nikki: I’m just wondering what’s giving you that glow?

Audra: I would’ve preferred to do this in my office.

[ Nate sighs ]

Nate: Too many ears. And this news is only for you.

Kyle: Harrison would be all over this camp maradona.

Summer: Isn’t that a soccer camp? Don’t you think he’s a little young for that?

Kyle: Our boy loves the game.

Summer: He likes to kick a ball and run after it.

Kyle: That is the whole game.

Summer: I was thinking camp wildwind. All that nature, he can play soccer during the school year. I mean, a– a day camp like that would be more of an adventure for him.

Kyle: Okay. Well, we need to make a decision, like, now, so, fine. Whatever you want.

Summer: All right. What do you think, a half day, full day?

Kyle: Let’s start with a half day.

Summer: That’s what I was thinking.

Kyle: Great. Problem solved.

Summer: Hey. I’m sorry.

Jack: Your audacity is beyond belief.

Tucker: Jack, I don’t want any trouble. I just don’t like your tone.

Jack: Whatever is going on between me and my sister is none of your concern. Where is she?

Tucker: Whatever it is you’re angry about with her, you need to remember that she always has your best interest at heart.

Jack: Yeah. Well, not this time. Where is she?

Tucker: If you’re planning on making her life difficult, I guarantee you, I will make your life a living hell.

Jack: Oh, now you’re threatening me in my own home?

Tucker: Our home.

Jack: Not if I throw you out on your pompous ass.

Ashley: Hey, what is going on? I could hear you outside.

Jack: Your, whatever he is, is determined to insert himself in something that is none of his business.

Ashley: Okay, jack, you’re the one who’s shouting. So, maybe you need to just back off. Even when I was with the people I love,

Victoria: Am I? I’m– I’m glowing? Well, it must have, um– it must have been the oxygen facial that I got yesterday.

Nikki: Hmm, no. It’s much deeper than that. You’re radiant. There’s an energy, like the air around you is crackling.

Victoria: Mom, if you’re insinuating something about nate, again–

Nikki: It was merely an observation.

Victoria: All right. Duly noted. Can we get back to work now?

Nikki: It’s the kind of energy you get when you go for the kill and you win.

Victoria: Yes. I love when newman has a big win.

Nikki: I hear elena dawson stormed out of here. Was that your big victory?

Victoria: Oh, there it is. Why didn’t you just lead with that, mom? And no, elena and I did not get into some knock-down, drag-out over nate. To be perfectly honest, she did not play the victim. She let nate and I know exactly what she thinks of us, and she broke her contract, which I am more than happy to let her do.

Nikki: Oh. Well, I’m glad it didn’t get too ugly.

Victoria: Mom, you have been very vocal about your disapproval of me and nate and how we got together. I’m not proud that we hurt elena. I’m noT. I– it weighs on me. The guilt, the sneaking around. I’m glad that she knows about it now so that she can move on and have time to heal. And now nate and I can– we can live our relationship out in the open. And yes. Yes, it feels wonderful.

Nikki: So, your glow is about nate.

Victoria: Yes, it’s about nate. He’s a real part of my life now. And you and dad and nick, you need to learn how to accept it.

Kyle: What are you sorry for?

Summer: This tension between us. I hate it. And it’s all my fault.

Kyle: I’ve been worried about you. The distance between us, I feel like I’m losing a little bit more of you every day.

Summer: You have done nothing but love me and I’ve treated you horribly. I’ve just been so furious at diane and… that’s spilled over to you. I was looking for answers to my mom’s death, and I thought that you were in denial. So, I shut you out to protect myself, to punish you. I don’t know, but it was wrong. And kyle, I’m– I’m so sorry.

Kyle: Not gonna lie, I felt like the enemy. It hurts, but I know you were hurting more. Your grief and anger. Summer, your mom is alive. You can let go of that pain now.

Summer: How do I do that? I know that my mom is… supposedly alive, but… that grief, it’s just turned into terror. I don’t know where she is. I don’t know if she’s okay. And if the police, they go looking for her and they find her… or what if they don’t?

Kyle: Hey, hey. Come here. I know what will help. Seeing your mom with your own two eyes, that she’s not only alive, but that she’s home and safe where she belongs. I promise I will make that happen.

Jack: Of course, you take tucker’s side. You don’t even know what’s going on here.

Ashley: Why don’t you tell me what’s going on?

Tucker: Actually, let’s you and I grab a drink somewhere–

Jack: I got a better idea. Why don’t you go grab a drink? Ashley isn’t going anywhere ’till we hash this out.

Ashley: I don’t like the way you’re talking to me. Now stop it. What’s happening?

Jack: Would you excuse us, please?

Tucker: No, I’m good.

Ashley: Out with it.

Jack: Okay. I won’t even ask if you were trying to stage a coup at jabot. I already know the answer.

Ashley: I’m shocked it took billy so long to talk to you, frankly.

Jack: Oh, you are hereby on notice. If you have any intention of following through with your plans, you will fail miserably. You will have no standing. You will lose all credibility. Your reputation will be trashed.

Tucker: A coup?

Jack: Oh, yeah, like he’s not part of it. Ashley found jabot documents in your hotel room back when she knew who our real enemies were.

Ashley: You know very well tucker has nothing to do with this. The only enemy our family has is your fiancéE.

Jack: You leave diane out of this.

Ashley: It’s impossible. All roads lead back to diane.

Jack: This is about your anger.

Ashley: No, it’s about me trying to protect our family’s legacy, jack.

Jack: This is about your efforts to try to bring diane down.

Ashley: I will not let our company and our family be diane’s latest casualties. And that’s what’s gonna happen if you don’t wake up.

Jack: The only threat to this family right now is you.

Ashley: She’s gonna drag us all down, jack. I’m not gonna let it happen.

Diane: No more. This has to stop. She found it.

Audra: You look like you could use a drink.

Nate: Not a bad idea.

Audra: What’s going on?

Nate: Elena showed up at victoria’s office while I was there. That’s what’s going on.

Audra: Yeah. I thought that’s where she might be headed. Um, I ran into her at crimson lights. She was locked and loaded.

Nate: And you sent her in our direction?

Audra: No, I just listened.

[ Nate sighs ] No blood, no bruises. Couldn’t have been too bad.

Nate: Well, she ripped into victoria and me and quit the podcast.

Audra: All wrapped in her self-righteous, wronged-woman fury. You know some people will never understand how the world works.

Nate: I do feel bad about how it all went down, audra.

Audra: Okay, it’s over, nate. Stop beating yourself up.

Nate: Ah, it’s hard not to feel guilty. And it didn’t help that devon ran into me and he piled on.

Audra: I mean, you do know that when you screw people over, you don’t get to feel sorry for yourself when they dump on you.

Nate: I’m just tired of being judged.

Audra: Please tell me there’s more news in this pity party you’re throwing yourself.

Nate: There is. And it’s very encouraging.

Audra: Finally, the good part.

Nate: Nick and victoria recently got into it. Apparently nick’s worried that I’m using my relationship with her to gun for his job, or nikki’S.

Audra: Oh, kudos to nick for reading your final agenda. But I mean, he couldn’t be more wrong. You know, any fool can see that you actually have feelings for victoria, as much as it pains me. Uh, not because I’m interested anymore.

Nate: Hmm. Then what’s the problem?

Audra: Well, it makes you vulnerable. And emotions can really mess with your head. Get in the way of the best-laid plans and blow everything to hell.

Nate: Won’t happen. I’m an excellent multitasker.

Audra: And you have me to watch your back. Well, you know, I have to say, I was expecting bigger news than nick’s nervous. And I don’t see how it’s a good thing. You know, nick’s gonna be more protective of his position and his sister, and more suspicious of you. None of this works in our favor.

Nate: Uh-huh. Nick’s and victoria’s relationship is increasingly acrimonious. He attacks me, she defends me. After their latest battle, victoria made it a point to let me know that nick is afraid that I want his job. Well, I let it be known that I wasn’t averse to the idea of moving up, at some point. And victoria didn’t have a problem with it… at all.

Nikki: Victoria, it’s not that I disapprove of your relationship with nate. I am concerned.

Victoria: There’s nothing to be concerned about.

Nikki: All I want is your happiness.

Victoria: Well, then just be happy for me, mom. Look, could you please just be the one person who at least tries to understand? Dad has interrogated me. Nick won’t let up about nate being too ambitious, being a threat to newman enterprises, not being trustworthy enough. I don’t wanna hear it anymore.

Nikki: Well, those are valid concerns.

Victoria: But they don’t know nate the way that I do. He has this energy and this openness. I– I can be myself around him. He’s not gonna judge me. And we build each other up. We inspire each other. We are so in sync with each other.

Nikki: Darling, you have had that same synergy before.

Victoria: Do not mention ashland, mom, or J.T. Or my horrible taste in men. Because nick has been happy enough to remind me of that already.

Nikki: What ashland did to you was devastating. And it has been a long time before you would even consider a romantic relationship, that you could trust your feelings again.

[ Sighs ] This glow, the sparkle in your eye, if nate is responsible for that, well, your happiness is what’s most important to me.

Victoria: Then I have your blessing?

Nikki: I’m your mother. I will always look out for you. But maybe it’s time that I let you look out for yourself and trust your instincts, trust your heart.

Victoria: Do you really mean that?

Nikki: I do.

Victoria: Thank you. And I promise you, I’m not gonna push things with nate. We’re in a good place and I intend to keep things as they are for now.

Nikki: Well, I think that caution and moderation are always good things. So, I’ll get back to those contracts.

Victoria: Mom, thank you for your support. It means more to me than you know.

Nikki: Oh.

Summer: You’ve been so supportive, I– I don’t deserve it.

Kyle: You’re my wife. I love you. And it wasn’t that long ago that you were helping me deal with my mother coming back into my life. There were a lot of pieces to pick up and you helped put me back together.

[ Phone ringing ] Oh, um, I’ve been waiting on this call. It’s our leather factory in argentina. I just need to okay the new production line. It’ll only take a second. Hey. Everything is gonna work out. I promise.

Daniel: Hey.

Summer: I am so not in the mood for another argument.

Daniel: Well, then let’s not argue. We have to talk about mom.

[ Sighs ]

Summer: I’m all talked out. Especially with you.

Daniel: Being angry at each other isn’t gonna solve anything.

Summer: There’s a lot more to solve after you opened your mouth.

Kyle: Hey, look who I found.

Summer: Lucy, hey, it’s good to see you back in town.

Lucy: Yeah.

Summer: Are– are you okay?

Daniel: It’s all right.

Lucy: I heard about what happened. I’m really sorry for what phyllis and that creep stark did to your mom.

Diane: We cannot go on like this. The constant arguing and– and yelling, it’s not healthy.

Ashley: I’ve got a solution.

Jack: Diane is not going anywhere.

Diane: Jack, that’s enough. We have chased kyle and summer into the pool house. Allie’s moved in with noah. Traci has escaped to new york. This is not a home. It’s a battleground. So, for all of our sakes, could you maybe do us a favor and try to show a little mutual respect and con–

Ashley: Okay, this is really rich coming from you.

Jack: Ashley, I’m warning you.

Ashley: No, you don’t get to warn me and you don’t get to give me orders.

Jack: Oh, but it’s fine for your boyfriend here to give me orders in this house.

Ashley: You want peace, diane? Why don’t we have summer and kyle move back into their home? The one that you chased them out of. We’ll make some adjustments to your ankle monitor and you move into the pool house. You’ll be very comfortable there. It’s almost exactly the same as it was before you burned it down.

Jack: Is there no level you won’t stoop to?

Ashley: Just trying to protect my family, jack.

Jack: After coming and going from this house, sometimes for years, treating it as little more than your pied–terre, you now wanna command it as your territory? I don’t think so. While you have been off on your adventures abroad, I have been living in this house, managing and maintaining this house as a family home! Diane is more family than tucker will ever be. If you can’t comply with the rules, if you need to attack her constantly, I suggest you rethink your living arrangements.

Ashley: Tucker’s a part of this family.

Jack: The hell he is.

Ashley: Diane is your fiancéE. Tucker’s mine.

[ Diane scoffs ] Want luxury hair repair that doesn’t cost $50?

Jack: Wait, you’re engaged?

Diane: Since when?

Jack: Is this some kind of joke?

Ashley: Why would I joke about something as amazing and wonderful as being engaged to the man I love?

Diane: Well, the man you love looks as surprised as we are.

Tucker: That’s only because we weren’t planning on sharing the big news yet.

Ashley: Right.

Tucker: But I couldn’t be happier hearing the words out loud.

Jack: He just moved in. You didn’t want him living in your room.

Ashley: Well, we didn’t wanna rush things. But, you know, when it’s right, it’s right. And when you’re this happy, why wait?

Diane: Yeah. All this happiness, why– why keep it a secret?

Tucker: We didn’t wanna risk a public announcement ’cause it’s so easy to get poisoned at those things, you know?

Ashley: Yes.

Jack: Is this another one of your nasty, petty little games? Making a mockery of marriage and love.

Ashley: That’s offensive because our engagement is a testament to our love for each other and to change and forgiveness.

Kyle: I appreciate you saying that, lucy.

Lucy: Maybe I– I shouldn’t have said anything.

Summer: No, it’s fine.

Lucy: I miss phyllis. I really do. But faking her death and– and framing your mom for it, why would her and that stark guy do something so terrible?

Summer: A lot of people feel the same way.

Daniel: Hopefully we can get this resolved soon. Get her back here with us.

Kyle: Summer and I were just talking about how much she needs to see her mother face-to-face.

Daniel: Um, don’t you have a manicure at the spa, kiddo?

Lucy: I just– I saw uncle kyle and wanted to know if there was an update about phyllis. I’m really sorry there isn’T.

Kyle: So are we.

Daniel: Well, I mean, you better scoot if you don’t wanna be late. Kyle, would you mind showing her where the spa is?

Lucy: Dad, there are signs everywhere.

Kyle: Hey. You’re gonna deny me a few extra minutes of catching up?

Lucy: No. That– that would be nice.

Daniel: Let’s do it. I wanna hear about portugal.

[ Daniel sighs ]

Summer: You told lucy?

Daniel: What did you want me to do?

Summer: Wait until mom was back. I mean, god, daniel, what are you gonna do next? Take out a full page ad? Tell the whole world?

Daniel: When are you gonna accept that telling the truth is the right thing to do for our sake and mom’s?

Summer: Not if it lands her in prison or a life on the run forever looking over her shoulder.

Audra: This could be a positive development. Now, victoria obviously trusts you. The closer you get, the deeper her divide with nick. We can definitely use that. And it doesn’t hurt that she already has the idea of you moving up in the ranks.

Nate: I didn’t push. Just finessed it. Which is the key to getting what we want.

Audra: I should probably give you a heads-up. Um, I once told victoria I was interested in your job someday. And I wasn’t particularly shy about it.

Nate: She told me.

Audra: She did?

Nate: She actually warned me about you. That craven ambition of yours.

Audra: Well, I meant it as more of a compliment to you and how amazing you are and how you’ll probably be promoted or poached by another company.

Nate: And you’d be more than ready to step in. For the record, I told victoria I admired your ambition.

Audra: Hmm.

Nate: But let’s be clear about one thing moving forward– no unilateral moves. We’re a team now. So, either we’re in this together or not at all.

Audra: I’m very in.

Adam: Yeah, well, to be competitive, we need to shift that service to an ott platform. Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. Yeah. Research on my desk by the end of the day. Okay, great. Thank you. Victoria.

Victoria: Dining alone again?

Adam: Um, it’s how I get the most work done.

Victoria: You must be very busy these days, especially given from what I understand, you think that newman media might be a threat to your new company.

Adam: Huh. Do you deny it?

Victoria: Oh, absolutely not. We are most definitely a threat to you. You didn’t live this strong, this long to get put

“The young and the restless” will continue. When it comes to your hair, ingredients matter.

Audra: So, what’s our next move?

Nate: There could be an opportunity on the horizon. Something we might be able to parlay into getting closer to our goals.

Audra: So, what is it?

Nate: Newman media may be headed for a showdown with adam newman.

Adam: Thank you so much.

[ Clears throat ] You have spoken to our father.

Victoria: Yes. As a matter of fact, I have. And he made it very, very clear that you intend to come after newman media.

Adam: Ah. Well, that’s good he gave you advanced warning. That way it can be a fair fight.

Victoria: No, it was more along the lines of dad wanting me to take pity on you and your ramshackle company.

Adam: I think you know mccall’s potential. You were gonna buy it for yourself. So, you know the threat’s real.

Victoria: No, I walked away. It wasn’t worth it to me.

Adam: Yeah, you ran because you knew dad was gonna put me in charge of mccall and you didn’t want to give me the win.

Victoria: You know, it really is a pity that dad would spend so much money buying a company for you, just so that you can run it right into the ground.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] And yet here you are, you’re calling me out. So, maybe you… you are a little bit worried.

Victoria: This is an act of mercy. You’re my brother. Newman media is stronger. It is far more cutting-edge. It has the full backing of newman enterprises. Mccall unlimited is a sad, failed company that should have been sold and raided for its few lucrative divisions that it has left. So, you can go ahead and pound your chest about coming after newman media, but you’re gonna be spending most of your time keeping mccall off of life support while we roll over you on our way to greater success.

[ Adam scoffs ]

Summer: I’m not just gonna accept what you’ve done when you have ruined everything for mom. If the police take this seriously, then they’re gonna look for her. And if they find her, they’re gonna throw her in prison before she has a chance to clear herself.

Daniel: You know, on the flip side, diane will be out from underneath a murder rap and she’ll be free to live her life again.

Summer: It’s not a fair trade.

Daniel: Is it fair for us to keep sitting on the secret? Is it fair to keep lying to kyle and let him be upset that his mom might be facing life in prison?

Summer: No. I just wish–

[ Sighs ] I don’t know. I wish that I had all the answers, but I don’T. I have been trying to get in touch with mom on the number that she used to set up that meeting with me. And I– I’ve left her messages. I get no response, nothing. I’m worried that she already knows that you’ve told half of genoa city and you’ve scared her away.

Daniel: I have told the people that need to know in order to get her the help she needs to come home.

Summer: You keep telling yourself that. I’m gonna live in reality, where you have just made everything worse.

Kyle: Lucy’s all set.

[ Daniel sighs ]

Daniel: Thanks, man. I– I appreciate it.

Kyle: That’s what uncles are for.

Daniel: I gotta go do some work, but, um… we should talk again– soon.

Kyle: When are you gonna cut daniel a break?

Jack: So, now you wanna take the moral high ground, with tucker mccall, of all people. I can’t believe you would even think of marrying him. Everyone knows who he is.

Ashley: No. I know who he really is. The old tucker would’ve left when he realized things weren’t going the way he thought they would. But he chose to stay. And I’ve seen him fight for the relationship with his son. I’ve seen him fall in love with his grandson. I’ve seen him be vulnerable and loyal and honest. And he surprises me every day, in a good way, with all the effort he makes to do the right thing.

Jack: He is conning you, ashley.

Ashley: Stop right there. Tucker never faked his death. So, don’t judge him. And don’t judge me for loving him. Your obsession with diane is nothing but pure selfishness. You’ve turned your back on summer and her grief, you’ve turned your back on our company. You’ve turned your back on everyone and everything in your life so you can fixate on being diane’s hero. I don’t get it, but it’s not gonna end well. I’m ready to go if you are.

Tucker: Yes.

Ashley: Diane, would you please hold onto those bridal magazines you were so excited about? I’m going to need them. If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease Hi, my name is tony cooper.

time of the year

Jack: How did we get to this? Where every encounter with ashley is a battle.

Diane: Well, does it help to say that your love for me isn’t selfish? It gives me so much happiness and hope.

Jack: You know, you’re right. The one thing missing in this house for everyone under this roof is peace. And I am partly to blame. I– maybe I am selfish. Maybe I’ve been obsessed. Too caught up in trying to clear your name and I’ve been remiss in other areas.

Diane: Well, that’s because you’re so protective and I love you for it. Jack, you don’t have to go this alone. We have michael and kyle and soon maybe even the gcpd–

Jack: No, no, it’s these– these unrelenting attacks from ashley against you. I swear if I could throw her and that idiot mccall out of this house, I would.

Diane: Well, you can’t completely blame ashley. I mean, she doesn’t know that phyllis is alive. So, she looks at me and sees a murderer.

Jack: Wait, you’re actually defending ashley after the barrage she just fired at us?

Diane: No, no, but you have to be honest. Come on. Ashley wasn’t wrong about everything.

Ashley: Could you believe my brother? That sanctimonious, self-righteous hypocrite. I mean, at least I was able to wipe some of the smugness off his face. And what about diane? She had nothing to say. And you know why? Because I was speaking the truth and she knew it. And thank you, by the way, for defending me to jack.

Tucker: Sure. You know the best part for me? Part where we’re engaged. We are engaged, right?

Audra: Newman media going head to head with mccall? We’ll crush them.

Nate: That’s the plan.

Audra: Hmm. And I’m your secret weapon. You know, all those years I spent working with tucker, I know everything there is to know about mccall. The corporate culture, their strengths, their many, many weaknesses. Now, I’ll be aware of any back alley moves adam might make.

Nate: That will be helpful.

Audra: Mm. You know, this could also be long and drawn out. So, I like to focus on a faster timeline, you know, for our personal corporate ladders.

Nate: Hmm. I guess I’m the half of this team that understands patience.

Audra: Yeah, no, I’m more from the “move fast and break things” school of thought. So, how do we fast-track this?

Nate: We don’T.

Audra: I don’t understand.

Nate: Think about it, audra. It won’t be easy to oust nick and nikki from their positions. It will take time to do it right. And I intend to use that time to put in the work. Really dig deep. I wanna get a feel for the company, get to know victoria on a much deeper level. Earn her respect. I wanna be fully prepared to help newman enterprises when the time comes.

Audra: You know, there’s an awful lot of “I” in there for a man who just told me we’re a team.

Nate: If you need to feel like you’re already winning, maybe you should find a new game.

Summer: I’m sorry, but I– I don’t think that my brother deserves a break. He told you, jack, michael before he told his own sister that our mom had contacted him. He even tried to convince you to not tell me at all.

Kyle: He only wanted to–

Summer: To protect me? I’m so sick of hearing that. And why am I the only person that is concerned with protecting my mom?

Kyle: You’re not the only one who–

Summer: Well, it feels like that.

Kyle: Okay. What can I do to help?

Summer: I have to go.

Kyle: Summer, wait. When you apologized earlier, I thought we were good, a team again. So, what is going on?

Summer: I can’t do this right now.

Kyle: Then when? You’re shutting me out when your mother’s dead, you’re shutting me out when she’s alive. How can I get you to believe I am on your side?

[ Phone ringing ]

Summer: I have to take this.

Kyle: No. What could possibly be more important than what we’re discussing right now? My husband and I have never been more active.

Adam: Victoria, I have always admired your confidence. But I look forward to proving you wrong.

Victoria: Oh, I look forward to the challenge as well. Actually, you know what? Challenge is too strong of a word. I look forward to the bump in the road that you will provide me.

Adam: I’m a bump?

Victoria: You’re a bump.

[ Exhales ]

Adam: Here’s a tip. Go ahead and underestimate me.

Victoria: I’ve already assessed the threat. You’re too emotional.

[ Adam scoffs ] Business and victory requires a very cool, calm head. But you, my brother, you run very, very hot. You’re gonna make a mistake. You’re gonna take mccall down with you because it’s personal for you. And that is always fatal.

Adam: It’s not personal for you.

Victoria: No, it’s not. It’s business for me.

Adam: Ooh. Emotional hothead as I am, I also was the ceo of newman media, so I know the company’s inner workings better than anyone. So, I’m prepared for what’s ahead.

Victoria: You know what? I almost like you right now. Who knows? Maybe this could be fun.

Adam: Hmm. Let the battle begin.

Summer: Kyle, this is work.

Kyle: It can wait.

Summer: Hello? Damn it!

Kyle: I gotta get to the office. See you later.

[ Sighs ]

Phyllis: Meet me in an hour. Location tbd.

Summer: Mom this had better be you.

Jack: I– I don’t wanna think that anything ashley says is true.

Diane: She was right about my past. Some of the choices I made, the terrible things I’ve done. No, ashley has every right to be angry and she might never get over it. But that doesn’t take away the importance of family. The one that you and I share with kyle and summer and harrison, allie. And the one you grew up in, which includes ashley. So, we do our best to love and protect each other. And sometimes it’s ugly. But one day we might really be one big happy family.

Jack: You are a marvel that you can find that kind of generosity of spirit for someone who has treated you so badly. It makes me love you all the more.

Diane: And I love you.

Ashley: I have to hand it to you. It was a brilliant idea you had to mess with jack and diane. Did you see his jaw drop?

Tucker: So, you stole a page from my playbook.

Ashley: I did. Thank you so much for the idea.

Tucker: Happy to help. But, uh, you said other stuff there, too. Was the rest of it also to mess with jack? The whole… “become your better self” challenge to me, is that a game? String me along a little bit, have a little fun.

Ashley: That doesn’t make any sense. Why would I ask you to move in with me if that was the case?

Tucker: I don’t know. Why would you?

Ashley: I see the good in you. I– I saw it the other night when you were spending time with devon and when you showed me those videos of dominic in music class. You know, I– I see the man that you could be and– and I– I– what? I care a lot about that man. I’ve grown to care so–

Tucker: That’s not the word that you used back at the house. You said you loved me. So, was that just for dramatic effect, or can you look me in the eye right now and say it again?

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Abby: Our boy never ceases to amaze me. I mean, that look that he gets in his eye and then he busts out laughing, it’s like the most adorable laugh ever. It gets me every time.

Devon: It gets me the same too.

Abby: Well, you seem preoccupied. What is that? Work?

Devon: Uh, yeah, it is. I’m sorry. I’ve just been playing catch up with lily out of town visiting charlie in new york, so I’ve had more work on my plate, but it’s all good.

Abby: Oh. Well, I love that you’re excited to go back to chancellor-winters. I think it’s a blessing the way everything worked out.

Devon: What do you mean by that?

Abby: Well, you know, I know tucker’s on his best behavior right now, but I think it’s good that you didn’t buy his company and get wrapped up in him and mccall.

Devon: Yeah, I agree with you. I’m very happy that tucker’s company is someone else’s problem.

Nate: I dug up a little background on mccall’s subsidiaries. There are a lot of vulnerable, weak spots. We should be able to find something we could take advantage of.

Victoria: Well, I’m really impressed. I love a business partner who is proactive and takes initiative.

Nate: Well, thank you. But you deserve all the credit. You have a way of inspiring the best in me.

Nick: Sorry to interrupt. I need to speak with my sister, if that’s all right.

Audra: Tucker mccall.

Tucker: Audra freaking charles. How do you do?

[ Both laughing ]

Audra: Still in genoa city I see.

Tucker: Yeah. Surprised?

Audra: Well, you know, I heard you were sticking around despite your declaration that you were running off to greener pastures.

Tucker: As– as you said, genoa city does have its appeal.

Audra: I doubt it’s the town’s charm that kept you here. And I double doubt you decided to spend your newly rudderless, company-less existence playing pickleball.

Tucker: Don’t be so sure. I have a pretty good backhand.

Audra: Well, I can only assume the reason you’re here is because you’re still pining for the love of your life, ashley. And yet, um, where is she?

[ Tucker laughing ]

Tucker: You’re so funny. I can’t tell if you’re trying to convince me you’re not jealous and you’re actually are. Or you’re not jealous in the least, but you’d like to give me the impression that you’re covering intense jealousy.

Billy: So this textile company that victor signed over to marchetti is performing very well. Definitely helping out the bottom line. Kyle did a fantastic job getting that under the umbrella. Next would be the new line, jabot men’s grooming collection. It’s finally in production and pre-sales have been very promising. And, uh, I am talking to myself, aren’t I? Seem to be. Jack?

Jack: I’m sorry, what? What’d you say?

Billy: I said what’s the point in having coffee and talking about business when the only thought you have is on diane? Don’t tell me this is a permanent condition.

Jack: I apologize. I have been distracted lately, but we’re working on something that’s going to really help her case.

Billy: Help how?

Jack: I can’t get into the details right now, but suffice to say I am more hopeful than ever that we can clear diane’s name.

Billy: That is good news. I’m happy to hear that.

Jack: Which means I can officially get focused again on jabot. So, what can I take off your plate? What, uh, what’s the most important thing I need to know before I jump back in? Ashley might be planning a coup. Feeling sluggish or weighed down?

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by.

Abby: You don’t have any regrets about turning down tucker’s offer, do you?

Devon: No, I don’t at all actually. The only regret I have is not having enough time to spend with you this morning before I go to work.

Abby: I know. And dominic, we have a very busy morning together and then I have to go to society, and you just said that you have to cover for lily at work, so.

Devon: I know. I do.

Abby: Okay. You cannot keep looking at me like that.

Devon: What’s gonna happen?

Abby: We’re not gonna get anything productive done today.

Devon: Well, we could actually be very productive, but it seems like you’re kicking me out. I guess the honeymoon phase is over, huh?

Abby: Oh, no, no, no, no.

Devon: No?

Abby: No. The honeymoon phase has just begun. Hm. That’s why I don’t feel bad about kicking you out ’cause we have so much time to make lots and lots and lots of love. But right now you gotta go.

Devon: I gotta go?

Abby: Yeah, you gotta go.

Devon: I’ll go. Bye.

Abby: Goodbye.

Devon: I love you.

Abby: I love you.

Devon: Love you more. Whoa. What’s with all these boxes in the hallway?

Abby: I have no idea.

Devon: Looks like nate and elena are moving.

Victoria: I think you should increase your marketing budget on those podcasts to maximize awareness and drive more audience interests.

Nate: Right. Sounds good. Well, if you’ll excuse me, I will get that in the works.

Nick: We need to talk about some budget issues with some of our newest acquisitions.

Victoria: Oh, really? Is that what you’re so anxious to discuss with me? The budget issues?

Nick: Yes, vic. Actually, that is why I’m here.

Victoria: Because I get the feeling that you actually want to turn this into another lecture.

Nick: Why? Because I just happen to walk in on you and nate yet again?

Victoria: Walk in? On what? Some chemistry? Oh, how dare we.

Nick: I didn’t say that.

Victoria: No, no, you don’t have to say much. You just glare at me and grit your teeth. You know, I’m actually impressed you were able to hold back for so long. You obviously didn’t hold your opinion back from dad. He was more than happy to interrogate me after you riled him all up.

Nick: Well, it’s not like mom wasn’t gonna tell him about it anyway. And what’s the deal? Is your new hot relationship with nate a big secret? Well, elena knows about it and she’s certainly not keeping it to herself.

Victoria: It’s not a secret. But I would’ve appreciated the opportunity to share the news myself instead of being blindsided by dad.

Nick: Okay. You have a point. Maybe I did speak out of turn, but my concern is for the company right now.

Victoria: Really? Well, then please explain to me again how it was perfectly fine for you to see sally while she was working here, but me seeing nate is somehow a recipe for disaster?

Nick: You just love bringing up sally, don’t you? Trying to compare what was happening with us and what is going on with you and nate. But you refuse to acknowledge one big difference.

Victoria: Oh, yeah? And what exactly is that?

Nick: Sally was never gunning for my job.

Audra: Are you suggesting that I’m jealous of what your puppy adoration of a woman who clearly doesn’t feel the same way about you?

Tucker: I’m afraid you’re not up to speed on current events, in that case. I’ve made quite a bit of progress in that department since you and I last spoke.

Audra: Have you now?

Tucker: Yes, I have. I live in the abbott house.

Audra: Uh…

Tucker: Yes. What you got to say now?

Audra: What’s rent like?

Tucker: Rent free, baby.

Audra: Oh.

Tucker: Yeah. Ashley said, “come in. Live with me.”

Audra: Wow.

Tucker: Yeah.

Audra: Unrequited co-habitation. Good for you, tucker.

Tucker: Speaking of unrequited, how are things going with nate? You still banging your head against that wall?

Audra: Actually, uh, things are going surprisingly well. You know, I’d hope for a bit more, um, entertainment, but that was at first. Now, the situation as it stands, could work out better than I planned.

Tucker: That’s a fantastic way to look at it. I’m surprised though because I know how much you like to be entertained. And you’re at your most productive when you’re mixing quite a bit of pleasure with your business.

Audra: Nope. I am keeping things strictly business. You know, nate is hungry, smart, decisive. He’s exactly the kind of partner that I need and want at this stage of my career. He’s the right ticket to get me where I wanna be.

Tucker: [Indistinct], Baby.

Audra: Hm. You know, as opposed to a man who’s only occasionally useful, mildly charming, but indecisive and weak willed and then lost everything he has in an embarrassing fashion.

Tucker: Maybe you’ve forgotten who you’re talking to here. And what kind of milk?

Jack: A coup. I cannot believe ashley is planning on making this move. It’s not possible.

Billy: I said might be planning a coup. And coup is my word, not hers. But I know she floated the idea of convening the board in order to take a certain action against you.

Jack: I know she’s upset about diane. I just never thought she would go so far as to make this move.

Billy: Jack, she’s concerned about the way diane has wormed her way back into your life in record time, despite a very checkered past. She’s concerned about the undue influence that your fiancée seems to have over you.

Jack: I– I thought her threats were just, you know, something she’d blurted out in the heat of the moment, an intimidating tactic she had no intention of following through.

Billy: I don’t know if she’s done anything yet. But I have heard rumblings that she is gathering the troops in order to vote against you.

Jack: How is she justifying this? On what grounds?

Billy: Your unwavering devotion to diane, jack. She sees it as a sign of weakness. You’re too invested. You’re too concerned about a woman who could potentially end up in jail for a very long time.

Jack: Okay. Why are you telling me this now? You have a position on this. You agree with ashley? You also think I should step down as jabot?

Audra: Perhaps I misspoke. Our past collaborations have proved to be beneficial for both of us. We both got something out of it, in and out of the bedroom. That’s why there’s no need for insults. And besides, I doubt you would’ve even put out with me if you didn’t see something in my capabilities and respect my ambition.

Tucker: That’s true. On both counts.

Audra: Mm.

Tucker: Wow. I guess this is a parting of the ways for you and me. I wish you well, really. Newman media and all else.

Audra: And I wish you well with ashley, I guess.

Tucker: Oh, uh, do you mind if I give you a friendly word of warning for old time sake?

Audra: Yeah, sure. Warn away, old friend.

Tucker: Don’t get too cocky. Your new partner and the former dr. Hastings has proven on more than one occasion he’s not above turning on those he’s closest to. He can be ruthless if he feels you’re no longer useful. I wouldn’t get in his way.

Devon: Sharon, how are you?

Sharon: I can’t complain.

Devon: Good.

Sharon: You want your usual?

Devon: Yes, please.

Sharon: Got it.

Devon: Thanks. Sharon, I’ll be right back.

Sharon: Oh, take your time.

Devon: Thanks. Hey, you. It’s good to see you.

Elena: Good to see you too.

Devon: I saw all these boxes outside your apartment. You and nate moving and not letting me know?

Elena: No, those were my boxes, devon. Not nate’S.

Devon: Ah, what did he do?

Elena: I found out that nate’s been sleeping with victoria.

Victoria: So let me get this straight. You think that nate is after your job and that’s what you’re so worried about?

Nick: I didn’t say he was going to succeed, but he might try. It’s been my concern ever since what he tried to pull at chancellor-winters. What makes you think he’s not gonna try and do the same thing here?

Victoria: And you’re so damn sure that nate is up to no good with– without any proof of your suspicions and your accusations?

Nick: What about his track record of deceit and lies?

Victoria: At his former company on our behalf. That’s no reason to hold a grudge.

Nick: I’ll tell you what, let’s bring elena in here and ask her what she thinks about what nate did and just for fun, we could also bring devon and lily too.

Victoria: This situation is very different.

Nick: How about the fact that he’s always in here having these little meetings with you? Don’t you think he should be getting stuff done in his own office?

Victoria: Oh, please. He reports to me. Why wouldn’t we be meeting?

Nick: He’s been making himself very familiar with every division of newman enterprises. It seems to me he should be focusing on his own division first and foremost.

Victoria: So now you wanna penalize the man for smart thinking and broadening his knowledge of our company. You know that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with looking for more synergy under the newman umbrella. In my book, he should be commended.

Nick: I cannot believe you cannot see this giant red flag waving right in your face. Vic, we have been here before.

Victoria: I already told our father that there would be no repeat of the ashland locke affair. So just drop it, nick. I’m in control. Just move on. Or the only person who’s gonna have a problem here is you. One prilosec otc each morning blocks

Devon: Nate and victoria are sleeping together. That’s something I didn’t see coming.

Elena: Well, I did. And I warned him that I was suspicious of her motives and he just kept repeatedly denying it.

Devon: I’m sorry. You certainly don’t deserve that. Are you okay?

Elena: I mean, it’s been rough, but it’s also been a long time coming. I just thought that he was gonna go back to being the man that I loved. I really believed he would change.

Devon: I mean, I always thought that if anyone could get nate to do the right thing, it was you.

Elena: Yeah. I gave him a chance to turn his life around and try to be the man that I thought he was and instead, he just threw that trust back in my face.

Devon: I don’t know what he was thinking.

Elena: He wasn’T.

Devon: He was obviously caught up in something.

Elena: Yeah. And her name is victoria.

[ Elena laughing ] I wasted a lot of time trying to think if he was mesmerized by the power or the sex. And then it occurred to me that it was probably all of it rolled into one. Power, money, success and a woman who has the same priorities.

Devon: I mean, whatever the case is, she’s clearly changed over the last year. And I know that I don’t have any room to judge anyone really, but I hope that you know that you are a whole lot better than him and this.

Elena: Thank you. I do know that. Honestly, I’m just relieved to finally be done with nate. He is swimming with sharks now. And believe me, he better be careful because the minute victoria smells blood in the water, she’s gonna eat him alive.

[ Nick sighing ]

Sharon: Nick, what’s up? I can tell you’re all wound up about something.

Nick: Yeah, but I don’t wanna talk about it.

Sharon: Okay. Well, I have something–

Nick: Thank you.

Sharon: I can talk about that might just put a smile on your face. I got to babysit little aria last night. She is such an adorable sweetheart. And we had fun just hanging out.

Nick: It is very hard for me to imagine you as someone’s grandma. You seem more like a cool aunt to me.

Sharon: Well, they can call me whatever they want. I was just so happy to have that little angel in my arms. And her real aunt faith can’t wait to come home and meet her in person.

Nick: Yeah, I talked to her. I hope she finishes up her work with her professor as fast as she can so she can come home for some much needed family time.

Sharon: Well, you won’t have to wait much longer. Our little girl will be here before you know it.

Nick: I hope so. Hey, what’s up with the, uh, the champagne? Are you turning this place into a bar? Because if so, pour me a drink. Sometimes coffee just isn’t enough.

Audra: Girl, I was just thinking about you.

Elena: Yeah. Why?

Audra: I can’t believe your ex.

Elena: Devon? He was just here.

Audra: No, no. The latest one. Okay. He’s just sitting there acting like nothing’s changed and it’s driving me crazy.

Elena: Well, what did you expect? That he was gonna walk in shouting from the rooftops that he’s sleeping with his boss?

Audra: I guess not. Besides, he and victoria still haven’t gone public and I’m keeping my mouth shut. For your sake, of course.

Elena: For my sake? Thank you, but… you don’t need to worry about me.

Audra: You know, I just thought you didn’t want people to know how badly nate treated you. You know, I have a feeling it’s only a matter of time before nate and victoria get careless and everyone figures out what’s going on with them. Look, I’m sorry, but this is just not a way to run a business.

Elena: I really don’t need to hear the gory details.

Audra: Of course, you don’T. Look, I’m sorry for going on like that when you’re probably more interested in, you know, thinking about payback. Or do you plan to just walk away and let them suffer no consequences?

Nate: Hey, man.

Devon: Hey.

Nate: Just wanted to say, uh, thanks again for including me in the celebration for neil. It was really something special.

Devon: Yeah, it was. It was. I wish elena could have been there. I just found out earlier why she wasn’T.

Nate: I was gonna tell you.

Devon: Oh, yeah? What were you gonna tell me? That you couldn’t help ruining the only good thing you had left going on in your life?

Nate: Believe me, I am not happy about our relationship ending either.

Devon: You’re not happy? What, did somebody force you to have sex with your boss?

[ Nate laughing ]

Nate: I hope you’re not about to lecture me from the glasshouse you live in. Because if I can recall correctly, amanda caught you cheating, right? Literally with your pants down.

Devon: Right. Do you recall correctly how you got elena? Neither one of us can judge each other, nate. It’s just– it’s clear that you’ve lost your way in life.

Nate: Uh-huh. And I guess your life is right on track.

Devon: A little more than yours. You’re obviously not the man you were a year ago. Or hell, maybe this is you. Maybe the real nate has finally been unleashed. If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue. The last thing I want is you ousted from our family company. You have steered this company through some very troubled waters in the past and you always bring us out the other side.

Jack: I’d like to think so.

Billy: You’ve done a fantastic job. And I think our dad would be proud. Me personally, I am honored that I am here right now and able to take some of that pressure off you in a time like this. So no, I am not planning a coup of my own.

Jack: Thank you. That means a lot.

Billy: I think it’s important you know where our sister’s head is at. She is genuinely worried that if diane gets off and she is free, she’s going to want a piece of the jabot pie. And when you two get married, she believes that diane is gonna force you to give her a leadership position in our family company, jack.

Jack: Ashley is completely irrational where diane is concerned. And it’s absurd that she thinks that jabot is in jeopardy.

Billy: Damn straight. This company’s in good, strong hands. There’s no doubt about that.

Jack: Yeah, no small thanks to you. You’ve stepped up. You came through at a time we really needed you and I personally thank you and I want you to know I respect your leadership as well.

Billy: Thank you. That means a lot. And to be honest, I debated whether I should bring this ashley thing up or not.

Jack: You actually considered the possibility of letting ashley ambush me.

Billy: No, it’s not that, but I was worried that this was gonna turn into a shoot-the-messenger type situation. Because jack, you know, no offense here, but you’ve been a little over the top where diane is concerned and I’m wondering if you’re aware how this looks to the outside world.

Jack: And what do you mean by that?

Billy: Well, let’s talk about it. You professed your love and got engaged in a very public manner to a woman who was almost immediately charged with the murder of your ex-wife. It’s not hard to think how the rest of the world could look at that, especially where jabot is concerned.

Jack: Yeah, that does look strange. Um, thank you for your honesty. I hadn’t looked at it that way. But don’t worry, I will handle everything from here.

Elena: Are you asking if I want revenge on nate and victoria?

Audra: Uh, payback isn’t unheard of.

Elena: I mean, of course, I’ve thought about it.

Audra: Does that mean you’re thinking about bringing jt to town or do you have a brand new idea?

Elena: Oh, I have considered everything including sabotaging nate and victoria. But I don’t wanna waste my energy on something like that. The two of them will probably blow themselves up.

Audra: Hm.

Elena: They will hurt each other more than I ever could.

Audra: There you go. Let them have at it. Just sit back and have the last laugh. You know, if victoria wants nate she can have him, right? I mean, you did tell her off when you found them together in L.A., Didn’t you?

Elena: No, not really. She actually got outta there pretty quickly.

Audra: Coward.

Elena: But I did get a chance to throw a drink on nate.

Audra: Really?

Elena: Mm-hmm.

Audra: I’ve always wanted to do that. That must must have been so satisfying.

Elena: I don’t know. I don’t remember how I felt. It was all a blur. But I didn’t wanna make a scene in a busy restaurant. It’s not really my style.

Audra: I see. You were probably glad when victoria left so quickly, so.

Elena: Maybe, but I still have a lot to say to her.

Audra: Oh, well, you know, she’s probably in her office right now. Not a lot of people there.

Elena: Hm.

Nate: Think what you want to, devon, but deep down, I’m the same man I’ve always been. But you probably haven’t had the chance to know this since with you, it’s always been about you, your relationships, your inheritance, your company, your family, while I was always somewhere off on the sidelines. A convenient cousin. Someone to turn to when you needed medical advice. Someone you never accept or respect at chancellor-winters.

Devon: Hey, you went behind your family’s back to try and sell out our company to your new girlfriend. You’re still trying to make it about me?

Nate: I think you can shoulder some of that blame, don’t you?

Devon: I don’t at all. And I hope you enjoy climbing the corporate ladder ’cause it’s all you seem to care about these days. And I hope it keeps you warm at night, all right?

Nate: You know what, devon?

Devon: What?

Nate: I just had an epiphany. You never really knew me at all.

Nick: What’s up with the champagne? Are you celebrating something?

Sharon: Um, I wasn’t planning to. It just was delivered to me without a sender’s name. And then I forgot all about it because of my evening with aria. That just grabbed all of my attention. But I do know that the champagne is not from any of the kids or adam because I asked.

Nick: How about chance? I know you two are getting closer since he and abby broke up.

Sharon: Mm, I don’t think it was chance because he would’ve signed it instead of including the rather cryptic note that came with it.

Nick: What’d it say?

Sharon: “Memories are what life is made of.” I don’t think that sounds like chance.

Nick: Yeah, me either. I mean, it’s a serious gift. Really nice vintage. Is this like a smudge of paint or something?

Sharon: Um, I’m sure it came like that.

Nick: I hate to say it, but it kinda looks like blood. My a1c was up here; now, it’s down with rybelsus.

Nate: I see you’re alone.

Victoria: Yeah. Well, not anymore. Lucky me.

Nate: I think I’m the lucky one.

Victoria: I guess we both are.

Nate: Uh, what’s going on with nick? He seems tense around me. Increasingly so.

Victoria: No, he’s fine. I, you know, it– somehow, he’s gotten it into his head that you’re gunning for his job.

Nate: What? Wow. That’s quite a leap.

Victoria: Well.

Nate: Where in the world did he get an idea like that?

Victoria: Often, uh, my brother has a hard time getting past other people’s transgressions, even though he has had a few of his own.

Nate: I mean, haven’t we all? I’d like to think that our past mistakes wouldn’t be misunderstood or held against uS. But to be honest, uh, nick isn’t completely wrong. I can’t say that I hate the idea of rising to the top here someday. I can think of much worse things than working side by side with you.

[ Knock on the door ]

Victoria: Come in.

Elena: Would you look at this? The two of you together and you have clothes on. Special occasion? Sorry to crash the party, but this just couldn’t wait.

Sharon: You really think that’s blood?

Nick: I mean, probably not, but what do I know? I’m not a forensics expert.

Sharon: Well, what is it then?

Nick: Probably just like a red wine stain from the store it came from.

Sharon: Hm. Nope. I doubt it. The color is off for it to be a wine stain. Who sends a brand new expensive, but damaged, bottle as a gift and then doesn’t include a signature?

Nick: Did you call the store it came from? Maybe they have some information on the anonymous sender.

Sharon: There was no information about a store or a return address. No postage or shipping information either.

Nick: No mailing label?

Sharon: I mean, there was the delivery guy, but I didn’t even think to ask him anything.

Nick: Yeah, I don’t know, sharon. I mean, if I were you, I wouldn’t drink it, just to be sure.

Sharon: This is kinda weird, hasn’t it?

Abby: Billy, hi.

Billy: Hi.

Abby: It’s been so long.

Billy: I know. I’m a terrible uncle. Even worse great-uncle. How are you? How is that beautiful boy, dom?

Abby: Me and the little man are doing great. How are you?

Billy: Pretty good, you know? Right now, I’m just happy I’m not living at the abbott family house. I mean, a lot of drama, a lot of tension going on there.

Abby: I can only imagine. All of those people, with all of their own agendas living under the same roof.

Billy: Yeah. I’m actually worried about summer. It’s gotta be a lot for her.

Abby: Yeah, my heart breaks for her. Um, you know, actually there’s something I’m a little bit more worried about with that whole living situation.

Billy: What’s that?

Abby: I’m afraid that tucker is on his way to completely winning my mom back.

Jack: Ashley, get down here now. Where is ashley? Trying to control my asthma felt anything but normal.

Nate: Elena, um, what’s going on? Is there something I can do for you?

Elena: As a matter of fact, there is.

Nate: Okay. Uh, let’s go somewhere else and talk.

Victoria: Oh, let elena say what she came here to say.

Nate: All right. Um, floor is yours. You have our full attention.

Elena: Wow. You two are so in sync now. And you, the great victoria newman, ceo of one of the world’s largest corporations. You really didn’t think people would realize what’s been going on in this office? Or notice that you two shared a room in L.A.? No. Because it’s your dirty little secret and that’s what makes it exciting, right? Although, it’s pretty careless. Even your brother knows what’s up. And he is not the only one. Everyone is catching onto it. So this is the image you’re portraying to your staff and the rest of the world. How professional. You’re ruining your reputation for a tawdry, little affair.

Nate: Okay. Okay. Elena, that is enough. If that’s all you have to say–

Elena: Not by a long shot, nate. I came here to tell you that I am quitting the podcast. The contract I signed, you’ll be letting me out of it with no questions asked. And that non-compete, I don’t wanna hear any nonsense about that. Even though it probably won’t matter because I will be putting my full focus back on practicing medicine. You know, a career that actually changes lives, saves lives and doesn’t destroy them. A career that actually helps people and doesn’t just care about bank accounts. You know, I should have known you were a lost cause nate when you left medicine. You just couldn’t handle not being the rockstar surgeon, could ya? And you think your job, your position, your office, you think they really mean something? It just means that you’re pathetic. The both of you are so damned pathetic.

[ Door slamming ]

[ Nate exhaling ]

Tucker: You know, I always figured the manners in this place would be more gentile. Sometimes, it’s like a truck stop on a friday night around here.

Jack: I have zero tolerance for your snide remarks right now. Where the hell is my sister?

Tucker: I don’t know. And even if I did, I don’t think I’d tell you.

Jack: Oh, why is that?

Tucker: ‘Cause you seem quite upset. And I don’t know want you going after her.

Jack: Oh, so you’re her protector now?

Tucker: That’s right. Do you remember your warning to me, jack? Don’t hurt ashley. Well, that warning goes double for you. You understand?

Jack: Who the hell are you to give me orders in my house about my sister?

Tucker: Have you forgotten what I’m capable of, jack? You’re gonna back off ashley. You do not wanna make me your enemy.

Nick: Sharon, it’s not kind of weird. It’s definitely weird. Who sends an expensive bottle of champagne like that anonymously?

Sharon: Well, I’d be a shame to waste it.

Nick: I mean, most wine stores would have some kind of label or address. Maybe it fell off in transit or maybe somebody at the store just forgot to slap the sticker on it. I mean, you probably have nothing to worry about, but if I were you, I would err on the side of caution.

Sharon: It was kinda cute when I first got it and now, something seems weird about it.

Nick: Could it possibly be the bloodstain?

Sharon: You said it was wine!

Nick: It is. It is. Or it’s paint. I don’t know. Just go with your gut. The thing is, if it really bothers you, just get rid of it. Good luck. I gotta go. Thanks for the coffee.

Sharon: All right. See ya.

Victor: So, tell me about your plans.

Adam: I haven’t decided yet between the fruit and granola or the, um, Eggs Benedict.

Victor: Son, this is no joke. I’ve offered you an enormous opportunity. You have a chance to do a turnaround of a company that was run into the ground by Tucker McCall.

Adam: Mm-hmm. Which is why I agreed to take control of it without interference.

Victor: This has nothing to do with my wanting to interfere. This has to do with the fact that I’ve done turnarounds like this before. Why wouldn’t you take advantage of my expertise?

Adam: Yeah.


Adam: Hmm. Oh, I have a feeling Nate wasn’t here for a morning workout. And he definitely wasn’t here for breakfast.

Victor: Oh, yes. On his way to his office. I think you should do the same if you’re serious about out-maneuvering Newman Media.

Adam: Well, I don’t think I’m gonna take any work cues from a neophyte like Dr. Nate, but if that means that your advice session is over, I think I’m gonna try the Eggs Benedict another time. Good chat.

Recap written by Suzanne

Jack, Diane and Kyle were hopeful and certain that the red hair found in the shower drain of Jeremy Stark’s hotel room was Phyllis’ hair. Jack believed that since the hair was found in the drain after Phyllis’ supposed death, that it was proof she was alive. He asked Detective Chance Chancellor to present the hair as evidence to DA Christine Williams. Jack told him that a DNA test concluded it is Phyllis’ hair.

Chance informed Jack that the hair isn’t evidence because it wasn’t discovered and collected by the police. He pointed out that the hair could have been taken from Phyllis’ own hairbrush. Kyle asked Chance to give the evidence to DA Williams, anyway. Chance agreed to, but he knew what Christine would say. “You screwed yourselves over by going rogue again,” Chance said, referring to Jack and Diane’s earlier attempt to frame Jeremy Stark for the theft of Nikki Newman’s necklace.

Summer almost let it slip that she was in direct contact with her mother when Diane remarked that Phyllis was probably alive and living it up somewhere, laughing about what Diane’s going through. Summer blurted out, “That’s not true.” Kyle looked shocked by his wife’s comment, but Summer quickly covered by adding that Daniel described their mother as being a wreck.

A showdown has been brewing between Adam, as the head of McCall Unlimited, and Victoria, CEO of Newman Enterprises. Adam sees Newman Media as a threat to his success. He vowed to squash Newman Media. Victoria, spending some romantic between the sheets time with Nate at the Athletic Club, told Nate it would be fun to sabotage Adam’s success, but she’s concerned what a battle between Newman Media and McCall Unlimited would do to Newman Media.

Victor and Adam discussed Adam’s plans for McCall Unlimited, and they disagreed on how Adam should approach revamping the company. Victor offered his experience in saving failing companies, but Adam did not accept it. Adam suspected that Victor has a hidden agenda. Victor, growing impatient with his youngest son, insisted he does not.

Chelsea and Billy had some lighthearted chatter about their careers and their children. Billy said he enjoys doing a job he is good at and is doing what his father, John Abbott, would want him to do – protect the family company. Billy and Chelsea made plans to have dinner.

Lucy visited Daniel and asked if he really thinks Phyllis is alive. Daniel confirmed that he does. Lucy asked again. Daniel told her to talk to her Aunt Summer if she thinks Daniel is imagining things. Lucy relented, saying that it wasn’t necessary. Daniel explained that Jeremy Stark forced Phyllis to do the crazy faking of her own death. Daniel maintains that Phyllis never would have done such a thing if she was in the right state of mind.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Victoria: You know, you are upsetting my routine because I don’t normally get back into bed after having my morning coffee.

Nate: Oh. The last thing I wanna be is a bad influence.

Victoria: Well, I wouldn’t– I wouldn’t say that it’s bad. But now, it’s time to attack the day. We have an empire to build, right?

Nate: Mm. Sounds like you have a target in mind.

Victoria: Well, I can’t stop thinking about how fun it would be to obliterate adam’s chances of succeeding at mccall before it even gets started.

Victor: So, tell me about your plans.

Adam: I haven’t decided yet between the fruit and granola or the, um, eggs benedict.

Victor: Son, this is no joke. I’ve offered you an enormous opportunity. You have a chance to do a turnaround of a company that was run into the ground by tucker mccall.

Adam: Mm-hmm. Which is why I agreed to take control of it without interference.

Victor: This has nothing to do with my wanting to interfere. This has to do with the fact that I’ve done turnarounds like this before. Why wouldn’t you take advantage of my expertise?

Adam: Yeah.

Chelsea: Well, I am very proud of myself. I got connor to school on time without any drama over screen time.

Billy: Good job. You’re a better parent than I am.

Chelsea: No.

Billy: Johnny was up an hour early playing away on that thing. I had to pry the controller out of his hands to get him out to school. Katie, dressed, ready to go, fully annoyed that were making her late.

Chelsea: Is it terrible that once I get through morning drop off, i just wanna blast the radio and sing at the top of my lungs?

Billy: Not at all. I think that should be a requirement. The only downside is that we’re not in the car together singing the duet.

Chelsea: I know it sounds silly, but I missed you yesterday. It was the first day in a while we hadn’t seen each other.

Billy: Yeah, I was gonna call you about half a dozen times, but I thought maybe you wanted a little bit of space.

Chelsea: No, I thought the same thing about you. But honestly, this is all the space I need.

Lucy: I’ve gotten pretty good at the flight from portugal. I was the first at baggage claim, and I even knew where you’d be waiting for me before I even got your text.

Daniel: Yeah, you’re growing up fast. Just wish you could stay my little princess forever.

Lucy: Dad. You’ve been a little weird on our calls and texts lately. I know you miss phyllis. I do too.

Daniel: I have to tell you something and it’s a little confusing. It’s a little out there. I don’t wanna upset you, but, um, you need to know. It’s only fair.

Diane: Has michael checked in yet?

Jack: Yeah, I spoke to michael last night. He’s up to speed on what we found and figuring out how to handle it from his end.

Kyle: Yeah. Chance will be here any minute.

Diane: All right. And once the police confirm the dna evidence, then we can get christine to drop the charges.

Jack: We hope so. But we’re going to have to be very patient.

Diane: Oh, I just can’t wait to lose this ankle monitor. I feel like I’m dragging around a ball and chain.

Kyle: I want these charges dropped. I want this nightmare to be over.

Jack: I feel exactly the same way, but we’re all going to have to allow for the possibility that this may not be enough.

Diane: What more could they need?

Kyle: Hey, how are you doing?

Jack: I’m sure it must be hard to process this latest news.

Summer: Yeah, it’s pretty overwhelming. When kyle told me that you found proof that my mom is alive, I didn’t even know what to think.

Diane: I can’t imagine what a shock it must be for you to realize what your mother’s capable of. But please know I don’t hold you responsible for any of it. You’re an innocent victim here as well. My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by.

Victoria: Do you think I’m callous for wanting to destroy adam’s chances at mccall unlimited?

Nate: Not at all. I know what he’s capable of. I haven’t forgotten how he tampered with victor’s meds when your father was under my care.

Victoria: So you don’t blame me for wanting to put him in his place?

Nate: It’s ruthless. But I’m finding that trait a necessary asset in my new career. But I do have to– I do have to wonder.

Victoria: Yes?

Nate: Well, now that I have a ringside seat to seeing how your mind works, did you have this planned all along? When you decided not to go after mccall and let victor and adam take it, just how many moves ahead are you in this game?

Victoria: The how and why of acquiring mccall may have changed, but I’ve always wanted that company. And yes, I do have concerns about what a battle over it might do to newman media.

Nate: How so?

Victoria: Well, mccall’s greatest strengths are media and entertainment and that is the business that adam has the most experience with. So, he could be planning to build on that. And if it did come to an all-out war, he could focus all of mccall’s assets and strengths on coming after newman media.

Nate: I’m not worried about that. If you wanna use newman media to wipe out mccall, I’m right there with you.

Victoria: You would do that for me?

Nate: There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you.

Adam: Dad, it seems like you have forgotten our arrangement. I wasn’t kidding when I demanded autonomy.

Victor: Son, I’m not looking to interfere, all right? I’m simply offering you my help. Do you know how much someone would pay me for my advice in a situation like this? I’m offering it to you for free.

Adam: Ooh, lucky me. I know your help comes with strings or ulterior motives and quite frankly, dad, I don’t have the time or the energy to figure out your hidden agenda.

Victor: Son, stop the nonsense, okay? I have no hidden agenda. Are you forgetting how well you and I worked together when we built newman media?

Adam: Yes. And now that company’s, uh, my main competitor.

Victor: Why? Mccall has many divisions that need rescuing.

Adam: Because it’s a shadow of its former self due to mismanagement. So my first order of business is gonna be to refocus mccall and its original mission, which is entertainment and media. I’m gonna sell off the rest and reinvest the capital into the core divisions and it’s gonna be a strong competitor to newman media.

Victor: Why would you go up against newman media?

Adam: I know that you won’t wanna hear this, but I see newman media as a threat to my success in mccall. So, you’ve heard it from me first. Our old company is in my crosshairs.

Summer: I don’t see myself as a victim.

Diane: Well, I just meant I’m not putting you on the spot for an apology or anything.

Summer: What would i be sorry for?

[ Diane scoffing ]

Diane: Nothing. Nothing at all. You are not responsible for your mother’s actions. And as far as frame jobs go, phyllis and jeremy’s was terribly convincing. But now at least you know that I am not to blame for what happened to your mother.

Kyle: You’re obviously shaken up. It’s a lot to process, but I can’t help but think how lucky we are that you wanted to hold off on telling harrison.

Jack: Absolutely. Thank god harrison didn’t have to unnecessarily grieve phyllis’s death and then hear this news and be totally confused. It’s confusing enough for the rest of us. It would be devastating for him.

Kyle: Yeah. Your mom instincts are right.

Diane: Yes. I just can’t wait for this to all be behind us. When is chance getting here?

Summer: Chance is coming here?

>>Ack: Yeah. He’s stopped by last night and I was talking with michael.

Summer: I actually was here when he came by to see you last night. But I– I got rid of him as quickly as I could. I– I kept on hearing what daniel was saying about, uh, not involving the authorities until we can figure out a way to help my mom, but apparently, you changed your mind about that.

Diane: Summer, how else can we clear my name?

Jack: I’m sorry. There might be charges against phyllis, but we can’t protect her at diane’s expense.

Summer: And you agree, I take it.

[ Doorbell ringing ] Martial arts is my passion.

Nate: Shall we head to the office and take on the world?

Victoria: Yes. I’m looking forward to it. Almost as much as I’m looking forward to our next night together.

Nate: Both sound intoxicating.

Victoria: Okay. I just need one more minute though.

Nate: Okay. Why don’t I go on ahead? It’s probably best if we head out separately.

Victoria: Oh, you wanna keep us a secret?

Nate: No, not at all. I would just hate it if elena happened to be in the dining room and saw us together.

Victoria: Oh, that’s really wise and sensitive. It’s a good plan.

Nate: Well, I will see you at the office. And I’m on board for whatever move you wanna make against mccall. In fact, I will come up with some ideas of my own.

Victoria: Oh, really?

Nate: And we can have a strategy session later.

Victoria: I love it when you talk strategy.

Nate: Mm.

Billy: Jack is clearly overwhelmed by diane’s case. Kyle and summer are basically out of commission, and yet jabot and marchetti still need to keep on chugging away, so I’m there shoveling coal into the engine. You know, making sure it all keeps running.

Chelsea: Look at you. The stable one in your personal and professional lives.

Billy: I know, right? How did that happen? Sometimes, I don’t even recognize myself. I look in the mirror and think, “who’s that guy?”

Chelsea: Mr. Reliable.

Billy: [ Laughs ] And yet nobody’s gonna throw me a parade for keeping things going.

Chelsea: That’s too bad.

Billy: Right? I love parades. It feels good though. You know, I’m enjoying being good at my job again. And I’m doing what I think my father would want me to do, protecting the family company. Stepping up in a crisis. It’s good. Feels good.

Chelsea: I know what you mean. I– I have those moments working with daniel. Like my ideas and work ethic are valued and respected.

Billy: Daniel’s a good guy, even if he’s not my number one fan.

Chelsea: I know you two have had some issues, but he’s pulled himself out of some rough times. I give him credit for that.

Billy: It’s good. It’s good for him.

Chelsea: Speaking of rough times, connor is so much less angry these days.

Billy: How can you tell?

Chelsea: Well, he– I don’t know. I mean, we can have conversations that don’t include what he wants to eat or when he is doing his homework.

Billy: Looks like we both deserve a pat on the back for making it through yet another day without screwing up too badly. By the way, you still owe me an embroidered pillow with that cute little saying that you promised.

Chelsea: I’m on it.

Billy: Okay, I’m waiting.

Lucy: So you think phyllis is alive?

Daniel: I know how it sounds. No, I am not losing it.

Lucy: It just doesn’t make any sense. Phyllis just flew to portugal to try and help us fix things.

Daniel: She did.

Lucy: Then why would she just turn around and pretend to die? She had to know that we’d be devastated.

Daniel: I don’t have a good answer for that.

Lucy: And she set someone up to take the blame for the murder? Dad, are you sure this is true?

Daniel: If you wanna talk to your aunt summer, you know, just to confirm that– that I’m not imagining this.

Lucy: No. No, I believe you.

Daniel: Look, I know… I know this is hard to hear. And my mother, she has… she has a good heart. She just fell into a dark place.

Lucy: Like you did.

Daniel: Sort of. You know? But she spiraled a different way. And then this guy, jeremy stark, he took advantage of that. He took advantage of her. I mean, he’s the one that forced her to do this crazy thing. And phyllis isn’t blameless here, but you know, she never would’ve done anything like this if she was in the right state of mind.

Lucy: So what happens next?

Daniel: That’s a really good question.

Kyle: Thanks for coming.

Jack: Sorry I missed you last night, chance.

Diane: Can I get you some coffee or tea?

Chance: Oh, I’m good. Thank you.

Summer: I told them that we spoke last night briefly and that I had to excuse myself to attend to harrison.

Chance: Yeah, we chatted briefly. Since you weren’t here, jack, I figured whatever this new evidence was could wait ’til morning.

Jack: I wasn’t aware you were here that long.

Kyle: Or that you two spoke.

Summer: It was before you told me about the new evidence, so I didn’t know that chance was here for something so important.

Jack: Well, that is the big news I asked you here to discuss.

Chance: Yeah. So, uh, what is this new evidence?

Jack: This. We discovered jeremy stark booked a motel room after phyllis supposedly died. In that room, we found strands of red hair and had them compared and tested against strands of summer’s hair. Dna tests say it’s a match. The dna proves that phyllis was there, which means phyllis is alive.

[ Chance sighing ]

Chance: Jack, it’s hair. It could have been there before stark checked in.

Jack: So phyllis stayed in the very same room beforehand.

Chance: Maybe she stayed there the night before she died to keep her marriage quiet. I mean, they were married. I got a license that proves that.

Jack: Believe me, this is not where stark and phyllis would honeymoon.

Chance: Hair, jack. It could have been on his clothing, his luggage–

Jack: No, I found it in the drain. And why would stark go back there alone after phyllis died? He still had a room in town. Why would he need another? Especially this down-and-out motel? Unless it was a place for phyllis to hide. Look, this is the kinda place you would go if you wanted to disappear.

Chance: Sure. And, uh, you supposedly found this when?

Kyle: Not supposedly.

Jack: Yesterday.

Chance: And this motel room hasn’t been cleaned since stark died.

Jack: Well, not well. But look, you can interview the cleaning staff all you want. There’s something here, you have to admit.

Diane: Phyllis fooled everyone. She’s alive and she’s probably living it up somewhere laughing at her victory.

Summer: That’s not true! That’s not how daniel described her. He– he said that she’s a wreck.

Jack: Regardless, this is proof that phyllis isn’t dead.

Chance: Jack, how do I know you got this from the motel room? How do I know you didn’t pull this off phyllis’s hairbrush? Surely, you knew this wasn’t gonna be enough to clear her name.

Kyle: But it should be enough for you to reopen the investigation. For you to do your job instead of having us do it for you.

Diane: Can’t you see what this horrible lie is doing to the people I love? To all of us?

Chance: Yeah, I see that. But I also see two people who are not above faking evidence.

Lucy: When is phyllis coming back? I mean, she can’t be on the run for the rest of her life.

Daniel: Well, we’re doing our best to find her, bring her home so she can tell her side of everything.

Lucy: So you have to tell the police what she did?

Daniel: Yeah. I’m afraid so.

Lucy: I’m af– I’m worried.

Daniel: Hey, we’re gonna try and protect her.

Lucy: No, dad, I’m worried about you. You have that look you had before back in savannah when things got bad. Like you’re somewhere else.

Daniel: Honey, I appreciate that you’re concerned, but the last thing I want is for you to be worried about me. I mean, no matter what, you’re still the kid in this relationship. I promise you I’m fine. I’m gonna be okay. And I am nowhere else right now. I’m right here with you.

Billy: All right. Well, if I’m gonna keep up with this mr. Responsible act, I gotta head back to the office. But not before I figure out when I get to see you again.

Chelseaab what about, uh, tomorrow lunch?

Chelsea: I volunteered to help out at connor’s school for their big field trip. Dinner?

Billy: Dinner could work. Yeah. Katie has ballet. As long as you’re not adverse to a crowd, we could have dinner with the boys.

Chelsea: Is katie gonna feel left out that she’s never a part of any of these family dinners?

Billy: She is not, no. In fact, she takes any opportunity she can get to steer clear of johnny. And her parents, at this point. She’s kind of at that age. Yeah. She just can’t wait to get back to summer camp and be with her friends.

Chelsea: Okay, then. Dinner with the boys it is.

Billy: Okay.

Victor: Son, going after newman media is a big mistake.

Adam: Oh, yes. And here comes your wisdom and experience, um, whether I want it or not.

Victor: Let me put it this way. I have a feeling you’re basing your decision making now on emotion. You are pissed off at your sister for getting rid of sally spectra and putting nate hastings in her– in her place.

Adam: No.

Victor: Let it go.

Adam: I disagree. It’s a solid move.

Victor: It’s a stupid move. Why don’t you let me help you rebuild the entire company that mccall ran to the ground? How’s that?

Adam: No. This is the right play to make, okay? Mccall’s days as a big, fat conglomerate are over. The damage has been done. And I don’t wanna throw good money at bad to try to fix it. But if I sell off the dead weight and I reinvest that capital to shore up our media businesses by going after newman media, we’ll be unstoppable.

Victor: I am warning you.

Adam: And nothing you say is gonna stop me from taking this shot.

Victor: I am warning you. Newman media is a very strong, solid company. Lot of deep pockets. Do you understand? You’ll knock out your teeth. Go after some smaller fish.

Adam: I’m not interested in playing it safe. I’m gonna squash newman media. Oh, and there is my competition now. But he doesn’t have a gym bag with him. What’s he doing at the club so early? – The company goes to the firstborn, audrey.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Adam: Hmm. Oh, I have a feeling nate wasn’t here for a morning workout. And he definitely wasn’t here for breakfast.

Victor: Oh, yes. On his way to his office. I think you should do the same if you’re serious about out-maneuvering newman media.

Adam: Well, I don’t think I’m gonna take any work cues from a neophyte like dr. Nate, but if that means that your advice session is over, I think I’m gonna try the eggs benedict another time. Good chat.

Victor: All right, son. Hello, my darling.

Victoria: Hello, dad. Good morning.

Victor: Morning to you.

Victoria: You having a power breakfast?

Victor: Yeah. I just had a meeting with adam, you know, advising him of his new responsibilities. What are you doing here so early?

Lucy: So, how’s your boss/friend?

Daniel: Lily? She’s good. She’s, um, she’s actually in new york right now visiting her son. She’s been looking out for me too. You know, she offered me time off from omegasphere, but I declined.

Lucy: Why?

Daniel: Well, I like the distraction. Things are progressing, the development’s in overdrive. It’s gonna be amazing.

Lucy: Well, I hope you fixed the glitches in the beta you sent me for princess louisa.

Daniel: I’m sorry. Do you have a quality assurance report for me?

[ Lucy laughing ]

Chelsea: Oh, hey there.

Daniel: Hey, chelsea. Uh, this is–

Chelsea: Oh, no need for introduction. It’s obvious this lovely young woman is video game royalty. It’s an honor to meet you, princess louisa.

Jack: Chance, even if this alone is not enough to get the charges against diane dropped, you have to take the dna evidence seriously.

Chance: I do take it seriously.

Kyle: Then follow up. Take it to christine, reopen the investigation.

Chance: I can give it to christine, but I know exactly what she’s gonna say. And while we are open to new evidence, this not it. Now christine has already chalked up everything that daniel supposedly got from phyllis to a leak in the department. And this is no more solid that.

Kyle: How can you say that?

Diane: I don’t think my lawyer would agree.

Chance: Have him use it in court.

Kyle: We plan on doing just that.

Chance: Well, good luck, pal. The chain of evidence for the hair is compromised at this point and there’s no one to corroborate daniel’s story or your story about how you got the hair. So, it’s your own damn fault that the evidence is questionable. The son and the fiancé of the accused found it doing their own search. Jack, what the hell? Why didn’t you tell me about this motel room and let the gcpd search the place? Let me do my job? And you know what? Even worse, even if this is all true, you screwed yourself by going rogue again. I’m sorry. This is not the solution you’re looking for.

Kyle: Damn it! We’re worse off than before. We’ve alienated chance and now brought the evidence into doubt.

Jack: Yeah, this is definitely a setback. I– I think I am to blame for not getting gcpd involved.

Diane: No, you can’t think that way. You were just trying to help me.

Jack: You know what? Chance is angry. That is his ego talking. Once he settles down, he will realize we put enough doubt in his mind that he and christine are going to have to pursue this on their own.

Diane: I cannot believe that our plan to frame jeremy for robbery has come back to bite us. No wonder chance doesn’t trust us.

Jack: We are going to do whatever it takes to clear your name. There has to be more evidence out there.

Kyle: And we will find it. She found it.

Lucy: How do you know about princess louisa? I thought it was all top secret.

Daniel: Chelsea is working with me on another exciting game at omegasphere. So she got a sneak peek. Yeah. Lucy here was actually just about to deliver a harsh critique of the beta.

Chelsea: Ooh.

Lucy: [ Laughs ] I was only giving you a hard time, dad. I love it. For real. I– I see so much of you in it. All those little touches that only me and mom would notice. Like how princess louisa’s dress is like my fourth-grade halloween princess costume.

Daniel: Wait ’til you see the easter egg. Also inspired by you.

Chelsea: Aw, I love that idea. It makes me wanna put some easter eggs in my game for connor and johnny to find. Oh, oh. Connor’s my son. And johnny, um, the son that I actually gave up for adoption, but we’ve recently reconnected, so. I’m sorry. Is that too much information?

Lucy: No. No, not– not for me. I like it when people are upfront. It’s better than hiding things and then, it just gets weird.

Chelsea: Well, maybe we can get everybody together while you’re in town. Give you a break from hanging out with your dad and all his friends.

Lucy: Yeah. I’d actually love that.

Daniel: Sounds great.

Audra: Good morning. Funny, I don’t usually see you on my route to work. Uh, you must not be coming from home. And that suit.

Nate: It is the one that I wore yesterday. I’ll save you the speculation. I stayed at the athletic club last night.

Audra: Oh, I see. More time with victoria?

Nate: I don’t like what your tone implies.

Audra: I’ll lighten up. I’m happy for you. You know, you spending more time with the boss is good news for both of us. I mean, after all, we’re on the same team now. We both want more of the same thing. More of everything.

Victoria: Oh, you know, I had a business dinner that went late last night. I was so tired and hannah was with the kids, so I just got a room here. Thank you.

Victor: So you’ve been working hard.

Victoria: Oh, yes. And there’s plenty of more work for me at the office, so I can’t take too long.

Victor: Hold your horses. Before you go, kindly explain to me what’s going on between you and nate hastings.

Victoria: Um, well, not that it’s anyone’s business, but nate and I are involved. I mean, it’s nothing serious… yet. We enjoy each other’s company.

Victor: Hm. For your information, your brother nicholas is concerned about nate’s intentions. Is he right to be concerned?

Kyle: We need to check all the surveillance cameras in the area around the motel at the time phyllis was hiding out.

Diane: Do you think we should after chance’s warning? And that’s something that he and the gcpd should handle.

Jack: Yeah. Who’s to say they will though? Especially after today. No, we need to hire an independent investigator.

Diane: But they’re not gonna find anything. Phyllis isn’t dumb. She would’ve been in disguise. She would’ve kept a low profile.

Kyle: I think we could pick phyllis out by her walk. I mean, summer could, right? Summer? Where did she go?

Summer: Hey. Thank you for not saying anything about our discussion last night in front of everybody.

Chance: Or about the fact that I told you about the dna evidence. Yeah. Must have put on quite the show when kyle told you last night. Sorry, I missed it.

[ Summer sighing ] Yeah. I didn’t really feel like it was my place to put you on the spot about that or about how long you’ve actually known your mother might be alive. Besides you didn’t really answer my questions, did you? So there’s not much to reveal there.

Summer: I could really use some coffee.

Chance: Summer, I got a feeling that you’re not gonna own up to anything, which is your prerogative. That’s fine. Let me just give you a little piece of friendly advice. As someone who has had secrets wreak havoc on their relationship, if you’re keeping something from kyle, if you know something more about what’s going on with phyllis, it could, uh, spell big trouble for your marriage. My a1c was up here; now, it’s down with rybelsus.

Nate: I suggest you keep your thoughts about my relationship with victoria to yourself from now on.

Audra: It’s already a relationship. You move quickly.

Nate: If being with victoria helps me at newman, great. I’m not gonna complain. But it doesn’t change the fact that the connection between us is real.

Audra: I’m not here to judge. Just don’t forget the end game. As I said, we’re in this together now.

Nate: That is a reach.

Audra: Not how I see it. I can be very valuable and I suggest you take me up on it. I’m another set of eyes and ears at newman. Now, people will say things to me about you and victoria that you would never know without me. I’ll have your back.

Nate: Mm. And that loyalty comes with a price tag.

Audra: It’s not for free.

Nate: Don’t worry. I know what you want. When I rise up in the ranks, I will see to it that newman media is yours.

Victoria: I’ve already heard all of nick’s objections to me being with nate and frankly, it’s none of nick’s business or anyone else’s business.

Victor: Sweetheart, the company is our business.

Victoria: Is nate ambitious? Of course. Absolutely, he’s ambitious, but no more than you or me. And nicholas doesn’t understand that– that there’s nothing wrong with that because he lacks that killer instinct, dad.

Victor: That’s a rather harsh view of your brother.

Victoria: Look, I love my brother. I owe my life to him. But let’s face it, he’s not ruthless or cutthroat. And sometimes, those things are necessary. I like that nate is developing that edge. Who knows? Maybe he’s had it all along.

Victor: You had better keep that edge because for your information, your brother, adam, intends to come after newman media.

Victoria: I welcome it. Nate and I can handle it.

[ Diane sighing ]

Diane: I feel so badly for summer.

Jack: Yeah. It was strange how she just suddenly disappeared. I hope he can find her. This has been tough on both of them.

Diane: Yeah. She probably just wanted some time alone. You know, this is a horrible situation.

Jack: I hate that phyllis has put us all through this, but at least we have hope now.

Diane: Well, I wish I could share your optimism, but what if phyllis covered her tracks too well? I mean, she is clever enough that we might never find her. And I know it can happen because it was my example that set this whole thing in motion.

Jack: Whoa, whoa, wait. Don’t say that. Look, we now know that she’s alive. Chance will come around. He will realize he has to track her down. Mark my words.

Diane: I’m just so trapped in this house and I wish I could help. Like what can I do? Can I make calls? Can I do a deep dive on the internet?

Jack: Resourceful as I know you are, there… there isn’t much we can do right now. Here’s– here’s– here’s an idea. How about a little diversion? Start planning our wedding.

Diane: [ Laughs ] Jack, I don’t think I’m in the right frame of mind for such a happy undertaking.

Jack: No, I’m– I’m serious. A real diversion. As– as lavish, as extravagant as you wanna dream.

Diane: You really are something.

Jack: We were robbed of our engagement announcement by phyllis and stark. I promise you, you are going to have the wedding of your dreams.

Diane: Mm.

Summer: Thank you for not pushing me on this, for giving me space to have my feelings. I seriously appreciate it. Not a lot of people are doing that for me right now. Everybody seems to have their own idea of how I should feel about this awful situation and it’s usually their way.

Chance: Yeah. Well, I am not, uh, emotionally tied up in it like jack and kyle and daniel if that’s who you’re referring to.

Summer: Yeah. Chance, I was serious when I asked you for your help. I feel like you are the only person that I could count on to help me find my mom and clear her name.

Chance: I wanna find out what happened. It’s my job, summer. So, if there is anything else that you wanna tell me that’ll help.

Summer: I don’t have anything else to say.

Chance: Okay. Well, I will be in touch with any updates.

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: Are you even listening to these messages? Where are you? What is your plan? Everything is hitting the fan here and I can’t do it anymore. It’s too hard. I need you to come home, mom.

[ Summer sighing ]

Sharon: Babies are babies. Boy or girl, really makes no difference. I mean, beyond the basics. Feeding them, rocking them to sleep and changing their diaper, they just want you to smile at them and talk to them and sing to them and love them. And you know how to do that. And the rest of it, you just figure out as they grow up.

Adam: Oh, I hope that is true.

Sharon: You sound doubtful.

Adam: Well, having a girl, I have been thinking a lot about my mom. And I want my daughter to inherit some of Hope’s intelligence and strength along with Sally’s incredible soul.

Sharon: Well, what about you?

Adam: Well, with any luck, nothing.

Sharon: Oh, come on. You must have some good qualities.

Adam: Maybe my chin and my impeccable sense of timing.

Sharon: All right. Where’s this coming from? You are always a good dad to Connor.

Adam: Yep. It’s easier. He’s a boy. You know, I start with the obvious, just don’t be like me or my father.

Sharon: I think you’re selling yourself short. You’ll be just as good of a dad to a baby girl.

************* **”********

Adam: Hm. Oh, well, as hard as it is to resist aria’s siren call, I have some McCall business that I have to take care of.

Sharon: He’s not very good at fake texting.

Sally: It’s me. I’m afraid I have made things awkward between us.

Sharon: Oh, I’m sure it’s not all you and– and you too will just figure out the co-parenting puzzle.
