Traci: Oh, look at that. Ah, I will never forget Katherine giving this to me when I was six years old.

Jack: Oh, this– this was from Luan.

Diane: Mm. Keemo’s mom.

Jack: Yeah. I was so hoping Allie would be here to hang her grandmother’s ornament. I’m sorry she and Noah can’t leave London and join us.

Traci: Those two. Young love, right?

Diane: Oh, I think love is nice at any age.

Jack: Yeah.

Diane: Mm-hmm.

Traci: All right, this is the best tree ever.

Jack: You say that every year.

Traci: And every year, it’s the truth.

Ashley: The chill in the air, the champagne, the carols, the bustle. I love Christmas.

Abby: You love buying Dominic gifts.

Ashley: Well, the chancellor house is pretty big. Plenty of room for lots of presents.

Abby: Okay, mom, that cannot be the criterion for–

Ashley: Well, I happen to know for a fact that in the backyard is a perfect spot for a pony.

Abby: No. No pony.

Ashley: How about a couple of puppies?

Abby: Mom, you are impossible.

Ashley: You better accept the fact I’m going to spoil that child to pieces.

Tucker: You’re the last person I expected to break into my room.

Ashley: Who’s at the top of the list? I’m intrigued.

Tucker: What do you want?

Ashley: I believe you. You’re right and I’m wrong.

Sally: So, is this a little bump? Or…

Adam: Well, I’m sure that I can work things out, but, you know, maybe I should hold off on telling you until then.

Sally: Oh.

Adam: I can see you’re disappointed.

Sally: No, it– it– I mean, maybe like a little “oh, well”-ish. No, disappointed is reserved for when I think about my career.

Adam: Because the initial flurry of work hasn’t led to more?

Sally: Yeah. Chloe and I met and bounced around ideas on how to keep the company afloat, but, I don’t know, maybe Sally Spectra design is gonna have to do something bigger. Maybe going to pitch to chancellor-winters again.

Jack: How you doing, ash?

Ashley: I’m better.

Jack: Times like these, I– I wish dad was still around. He was so much better at comforting you than I am.

Ashley: I always wished dad was around. But don’t sell yourself short. You did great.

Jack: Yeah, it doesn’t feel like it.

Ashley: You did. Absolutely. You just listened. You comforted me and you didn’t judge me. You reminded me that you and Traci are always there for me no matter what, through anything.

Jack: That is one thing the three of us can always count on. Together, we can conquer anything.

Ashley: That’s the truth.

Jack: I know what dad would do for you now.

Ashley: What?

Jack: Bring his beauty a cup of tea.

Ashley: He would. You’re right.

Jack: Yeah, you stay right here.

Ashley: Okay

Kyle: Fine, thanks. Um. Hey, mom, dad, and I were going to go to society for dinner and I just stopped by to check on Harrison. You should join us.

Jack: Yeah.

Kyle: I’ll be right back.

Jack: That’s a great idea.

Diane: I would love that.

Jack: Yeah, really think about it. It would be a great distraction for you. And, I hate to brag, but I have been told… that I can be a charming dinner companion from time to time.

Diane: He’s right. I’ve seen it.

Ashley: That’s nice. Thank you for the invitation. I’m a little beat. I think I’ll just stay here and rest.

Jack: I wish you’d reconsider. We’d have a lot more fun if you came along.

Ashley: Yeah, because I’m so much fun.

[ Ashley laughs ] Um. It’s very sweet of you to be concerned. Um, but you don’t need to supervise me.

Jack: It was a sincere invitation, truly. I am not trying to supervise you.

Ashley: Oh, yeah, you are. You’re exceptionally good at it. Seriously. Um, you guys go eat, drink, and be merry, and… bring me back some cheesecake

Tucker: Can I buy you a drink?

Phyllis: Don’t– don’t do that. Don’t look over my shoulder and read my text, creeper.

Tucker: I wasn’t reading your text. That was me offering to buy you an adult beverage.

Phyllis: That’s a lie.

Tucker: No. Cross my heart, hope to die.

Phyllis: I’m gonna take a pass, but thank you.

Tucker: But you and I are such good friends.

Phyllis: No, we’re not. Go away. How’s that

Phyllis: You know, the last time I listened to one of your propositions, it did not work out great for me.

Tucker: Are you sure? Because you were able to wipe out your substantial debt. So, it seems like it worked out, at least for you.

Phyllis: Ah, that’s because I outschemed your scheme.

Tucker: Yeah. Right. That’s exactly why I think you should hear me out. So, I’m– I’m making moves to build this new company and I’m going to need a top-tier I.T. Department which of course is where you come in.

Phyllis: I already have a job. Thank you.

Tucker: Uh-huh. Working for someone who works for someone who’s the head of I.T. at… what’s it called? Omegasphere?

Phyllis: That’s not what it is exactly.

Tucker: Yeah. Well, that might be a great opportunity for some young up-and-coming tech hopeful, but hardly befits someone of your talent.

Tucker: Ah. I almost didn’t recognize you without lover boy at your heels.

Audra: You know, I’ll admit, I underestimated Kyle, but I know better now.

Tucker: I don’t think it’s possible to underestimate Kyle.

Audra: He can see what you’re up to. He can see right through your scheme.

Tucker: Mm. What am I up to exactly?

Audra: Well, you thought he believed your idea to blame Billy or Diane for selling jabot cosmetics formulas. But Kyle is convinced you’re setting him up to take the fall.

Tucker: Yeah. It’s an interesting thought, isn’t it?

*****************************************************

Billy: It’s quiet around here. Did everybody take off for work already?

Jack: Yeah. Diane and Kyle went out for breakfast.

Billy: Breakfast? When they’ve got Mrs. Martinez’s legendary omelets being made right through that door?

Jack: I think they’re up to something.

Billy: Uh-oh. What could that be?

Jack: Yeah. Christmas. Maybe a coup. Who knows?

Billy: Keep up that good spirit Jack

Billy: Sorry, I’m late.

Chelsea: That’s okay. Oh, someone went shopping.

Billy: Oh, yeah, yeah. That– that’s nothing.

Chelsea: It’s a little early for Christmas. What’s the occasion?

Billy: I just had to make sure I had enough wrapping paper, you know. Christmas is only a few days away and you can’t have enough.

Chelsea: It’s a little heavy for wrapping paper.

Billy: Yeah. You know, there’s some ribbon in there and some stickers and, uh, some of those like name tags. And I really don’t like it when they’re so small and you can’t write something heartfelt, so I got some big ones.

Chelsea: Yeah. I hate that. Let me see what you got.

Billy: Excuse me. Get your pretty little paws off of there, okay? I have plans for my stickers. You can get your own. Now, what shall we eat?

Tucker: Listen to you two. You sound almost like allies, working side by side.

Ashley: Well, you know what they say? The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Tucker: Is that what we are now, Ashley? Enemies?

Ashley: Civil adversaries, for Dominic’s sake.

Tucker: Actually, that’s why I’m here. I would like to declare peace with the Abbotts. I’m waving the white flag. Laying down my sword.

Jack: Extending the olive branch. Say it any way you want, we’re not buying.

Tucker: Well, you should. I no longer have any interest in jabot.

Jack: And we’re to just take you at your word on this? Again?

Tucker: Peace is a two-way street, Jack, and I’m willing if you are.

Danny: He just took off for a meeting.

Phyllis: Oh, I should know that since I’m his employee.

Danny: Well, I’m sure you can meet up with him over at the*** office.

Phyllis: Oh, no, that won’t do. Um, I just brought him this housewarming gift. It’s a succulent. They tell me you can’t kill them.

Danny: Oh.

Adam: Mhm-hm. It’s not awkward at all.

Sally: It didn’t even cross my mind.

Adam: I just really don’t want to mess this up. I mean, not that there is anything to mess up. We’re just– just having lunch.

Sally: Yeah. I mean, what could go wrong?

Adam: With us? Everything. Or everything could go very right.

Sally: So, how do we do this whole nondate thing?

Adam: Well, um, I’m gonna have a salad. You’ll probably have a cheeseburger. Rare. And an iced tea because it’s a workday.

Sally: Well, you know me. And you have really thought this through.

Adam: I have. Because this is where we do best. The now. Just you, me, and the daily specials. Not the past, not the future.

Sally: What if I want dessert?

Adam: Oh, dessert is always available.

Sally: Do you really think that we can hit the reset button?

Adam: I’m sure as hell willing to try. And I’m hoping that you are too.

Heather: Okay. But the good news is as far as your daughter is concerned, you have more than made up for it. I mean, she loves being here with you. And that’s a beautiful thing that we can give her.

Daniel: No. Yeah. Me and my dad, he, uh, said something to me earlier that really resonated with me. Um… he was talking about how you should never waste a single moment that you’re given. I think moving forward, that’s exactly what I intend to do.

Heather: Your dad is a very wise man. But has he shared with you his secret pasta sauce recipe?

Daniel: No. And he’s being a real jerk about it too. I guess all of that, you know, make every moment matter crap doesn’t apply to spaghetti.

**************”””””””””””””””””””””””””””

Daniel: Level 72. Wow, that is impressive. I mean, that takes some serious commitment to get in that deep.

Heather: Well, I had to familiarize myself with chancellor-winters content. Didn’t I? I mean, and how would i be totally effective at my new job if I didn’t do that? Besides, you have all those legal issues that you’re expecting that I need to prepare for.

Daniel: I knew it. You are a loophole lawyer, aren’t you?

Heather: Sh. In all seriousness though. I, um, I really found the game truly rewarding and challenging. I– I swear, I– I could not put it down.

Daniel: Well, that is high praise coming from you. You know, you hear it from critics, you hear it from strangers. But hearing you say it means a lot.

Heather: It was fun. And I feel like I even learned a few new things about myself in the process.

Audra: Um, why are you shouting? Are– are you looking for something? Or someone?

Tucker: Ah, just giving young Mr. Abbott ample time to collect his stuff. Get back to jabot.

Audra: Oh, look, you’re wasting your breath.

Tucker: Is he in the shower?

Audra: You know, tucker, this fixation with me and Kyle–

Tucker: No, no, no. It’s no fixation. I think you’re young. I think, uh, you ought to live it up. Take advantage. Just keep your head in the game. We’re cool. We’re cool. You just gotta give me what I want.

Audra: Which is?

Tucker: I just gotta know this guy is trustworthy. Isn’t he supposed to be coughing up secrets, so-called secrets, from the sanctum sanctorum of jabot? Yes? Where are they?

Sally: I wonder what that was about.

Adam: Uh, probably not enough coffee, I guess.

Sally: Yeah, that seemed like more than just not wanting to be around the two of us.

Adam: Well, Newman family business takes its toll. Something is up. They’ve all been Mia at work lately. And when I dared to ask him about it, I can tell that I struck a nerve.

Sally: I’m sorry.

Adam: No, don’t be. I assume I will find out what the big mystery is soon enough. But in the meantime, you did not answer my question. Good is a place filler. You tell me how you really doing, now that Nick’s gone, you don’t have to dance around it.

Phyllis: Oh, I understand that. I understand that. Probably contemplating your future if there’s any truth to the rumor that you’re vacating the D.A.’S office.

Adam: So, more musical chairs in the c-suite.

Nick: Yeah, I don’t know. Dad could be bringing someone else in.

Adam: No, I doubt that. I mean, you heard his speech about family pulling together. His plan is for you and me to work side by side.

Nick: Yeah, I’d say that’s a fantasy.

Audra: So, the strategy is to just let the news cycle die out?

Tucker: That’s right. Strategy is lay low, regroup. See what happens. People don’t have any attention span anymore. They’ll be on to the next scandal in a couple of days.

Audra: Well surely the good people of glissade won’t forget or forgive so easily.

Tucker: No, they are angry, disgusted.

Audra: Did they find a way to oust you?

Tucker: Mm.

[ Tucker clears throat ] Just the opposite. I’m firing all of them.

[ Tucker coughs ]

Audra: So, the captain is going down with a sinking ship. And you’re throwing everyone overboard first.

Tucker: No, no, I have no intention of walking away, just because of a little hiccup.

Audra: You know, well, I say it’s more than just a hiccup. It’s more like a death rattle.

Tucker: Listen, I can put together another board. I can find a new staff. I can surround myself with people who are willing to look past my missteps. So, the answer to your question is no, the Abbotts have not defeated me. They haven’t won and they won’t. Listen, your deodorant just has to work.

Heather: Oh, you’re putting it on me. Um, you’re that anxious to abandon me, I see. Just like that?

Lucy: No, I’m not abandoning you. I’m just taking a little vacay before we move into our own place in a few weeks. I mean, why would I let a cool room like that go unused.

Heather: Fair enough. I’ll help you pack a few things

Daniel: I won’t. And use a coaster if you put that tea down!

Heather: She’ll be fine. I haven’t seen her this happy in a long time. I take that as proof positive.

Daniel: Of what?

Audra: Look, I think you’re wrong, tucker. I’ve seen the look in Kyle’s eyes. I can tell when he wants something and he wants this, badly.

Tucker: What he wants is his daddy’s approval. Nothing more. And to capture the Abbott white whale, me. Also to push Billy out of the chair he thinks rightfully should be his.

Audra: Okay. Well, if you’re right–

Tucker: I’m right.

Audra: All right then. If you really feel that way, what are we doing here? How is this plan gonna work?

Tucker: We’re gonna use the knowledge to our advantage. He’s so desperate for his dad’s approval, he’ll be easier to manipulate.

Audra: I’m warning you, tucker, you’re underestimating Kyle.

Tucker: You know what? Someone should tell him that about me. Why do you keep sticking up for him and justifying him? Audra, please don’t tell me you’re falling for this guy.

Billy: Why do I care? I– I– I find it odd that you would, you know, be late on your first day back at jabot.

Kyle: Well, I didn’t realize I was still interviewing for the job.

Billy: Kyle, you were so contrite with jack, insisting that this miraculous turnaround was real. You know, brimming with enthusiasm to be back at jabot. And no, it’s not in the position that you actually wanted, but it’s a family company and now you’re late on your first day.

Tucker: Yeah, but then you don’t know me at all. Because the truth is, I’ve had it with her. I’ve just– I’m sick to death of the constant arguments, the accusations, the insistence that I’m gaslighting her. I am crossing the street. I just– I don’t want her interfering. I don’t want her getting in the way of what you and I have.

Ashley: Okay, the only ramifications here is that it proves the lengths that Tucker will go to to make me think that I’m imagining things. I mean, clearly, he has taken gaslighting to a completely different level. Who does that? Would you please stop looking at each other like that? Just stop it! You’re trying to make me think I’m wrong! I’m not wrong! He’s gaslighting me, but clearly he’s gotten to you. You guys know what he’s capable of! Why are you doubting me? Skin-carving next level hydration?

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness, well look at you. You can’t deny you have feelings wow. Well, what’s going on with the two of you is exactly what’s going on with me and Danny. How come you can’t accept that?

Daniel: We’re not talking about my situation right now.

Phyllis: Oh, oh, there’s a situation? I didn’t know there was a situation. Well, that must be really awkward. You know, lily and all.

Daniel: Okay, this is about you making problems for dad and for Christine. It just– it feels like you’re up to your old tricks, mom. It feels– it feels like you’re being the aggressor. It feels like you’re not having any respect for anybody’s boundaries. And this is supposed to be you on your best behavior.

Phyllis: What’s going on here? Is someone in your ear? I can’t imagine who. There is nothing like that going on between me and Danny. The pull is completely mutual, okay? There’s no aggression.

Daniel: Okay, okay. You saying he’s gonna wake up one day and realize that the two of you are meant to be together? What’s that?

Phyllis: Fate, destiny.

Daniel: No, no, it feels more like ego. It feels more like ancient history. It feels like you being more concerned about beating Christine than any feelings you might actually have for dad.

Danny: Cricket, wow. What brings you here?

Tucker: The only reason I ask about her and if she’s back, is because I wanna avoid running into her.

Billy: Oh yeah, right.

Tucker: You know, she went to Paris to gather ammunition to use against me.

Billy: You mean to defend herself against you?

Tucker: No, sir. No, she is the angry one in search of retribution. I just want to steer clear of her and protect myself against whatever attack she has planned next.

Billy: And you still have the audacity to paint yourself as the victim here.

Tucker: That’s something I will never be. Anyone’s victim. I am prepared for someone to try to make me one, however.

Billy: Right, prepared in the same way that you were with the press and how they were gonna trash you about the cover-up scandal?

Tucker: Here I am, I’m still standing. I don’t share your knack for failure.

Billy: Well, actually, tucker, my days of failure are over. Yeah, I’m on top of the world now. Running a very successful company, in a stable and loving relationship. Two amazing kids that actually like me that think I’m a fantastic dad.

Tucker: And modest, too.

Billy: I have all the things you will never have. Because you’re too self-absorbed to actually be in a compassionate relationship that has a give and a take. ‘Cause all you do is take, tucker.

[ Billy clicks tongue ] Poor you. Always on the outside of everything that matters in life.

Phyllis: It’s really impressive, though, because you got exactly what you went for, didn’t you? Jack’s ring on your finger and his company under your thumb.

Diane: For your information, I didn’t scheme to get here. I begged jack to rehire Kyle as co-CEO, but he just insisted that I was perfect for the job, and Kyle agreed.

Phyllis: Through no manipulation of your own, I’m sure.

Diane: You know, your glow seems to have faded. Are you okay?

Phyllis: Oh, it’s definitely not faded, but thanks. There’s actually a special someone in my life who cares for me. It’s a great feeling. It’s so much better than being offered a pity position by my husband.

Audra: It only matters if you let your obsession with Ashley distract you from your ultimate goal. Again.

Tucker: Ashley, Ashley. You’re obsessed with her.

Audra: Oh, don’t.

Tucker: Who’s jealous now?

Audra: Uh-uh, I’m not playing this little game with you.

Tucker: Mm. I’m not playing games either. I don’t have time for games.

Audra: Look, this idea of yours is a massive undertaking. If you can pull it off. And I agree. It would be a dream position for me. But where do you expect to get all the capital to scoop up all these companies?

Tucker: I’ve never had any problem raising capital.

Audra: Really now?

Tucker: Really. Mm-hmm. There’s a sea of it out there.

Audra: Mm.

Tucker: And I’m fishing with dynamite. That’s the fun part.

Audra: Oh.

Tucker: So, we talk business now?

*************** *****†*************

Nikki: Oh, hi. I hope you’re coming for me, Jordan. Yes, that’s right. I dare you. Because it’ll be the biggest, worst mistake you’ve ever made. I’ll wait for ya. Bitch. I’ll be waiting. I’m waiting. Okay, when you turn around, you’re gonna see someone.

Jack: Well, I can give you a few reasons. I think he’s fond of you. You’ve never been married to Nikki and you’ve never been his sworn enemy for years on end.

Lauren: Well, that’s true. You got me there.

Jack: You’re tough and you know what she’s up against. Look, if you’d agree to this, I’m sure victor would not object.

Lauren: You’ve really thought this through.

Jack: I can’t help being protective, of both of you.

Lauren: And that means more to me than I can say. You know, I’ve been blessed with a very incredible management team who’s excellent at day-to-day, so I could step in for a little bit and still be available for the big things..

Jack: Is this sounding like a yes?

Lauren: Oh, well, I need to know how Nikki feels. Have you even run this by her? I mean, is she going to be amenable or is she going to see this for what it really is? Me watching her to make sure she doesn’t take that first drink.

*************************************************

Nick: No, no. I don’t take much credit for that.

Adam: Come on. You are the common denominator. You must have done something right.

Nick: Thanks. Might be the most sincere compliment you’ve ever given me.

Audra: Are you staring at me to distract from the fact that Devon’s over there ignoring you?

Tucker: Is Devon here? Ah, there he is. What do you know?

Audra: Yeah, very funny.

Tucker: I only have eyes for you right now.

[ Audra chuckles ]

Audra: Sorry, but this just doesn’t sound like the Tucker I know.

Audra: I– I feel a shift in our dynamic. I just hope it lasts.**

Tucker: “A shift in our dynamic,” wow. You’re such a poet, Audra. I think you’re still on guard about Ashley.

Audra: Oh, god. Yeah, well, I know you very well. And I’m realistic. So, yes, I am on guard.

Tucker: Give me your hand. Give me your hand. I meant what I said upstairs. I choose you in all ways possible. It’s you and me from now on.

**********************************************

Sharon: Are you and Devon having some kind of a conflict? Because if there’s going to be issues before this partnership even gets off the ground–

Billy: It’s nothing like that. We’re just figuring out how to work together again. That’s all it is.

Sharon: As long as it’s not going to be contentious.

Billy: It’s all about collaboration for me.

Sharon: Uh-huh.

Billy: Look, if I get my feathers ruffled because of a missed meeting, that’s one thing. I just don’t want it to get to my mother, okay? So, I will remind Devon that I need to be kept in the loop. Other than that, everything is going to be just great.

Lucy: Hey, dad. We still on for later? Hello? Your daughter’s speaking to you.

Daniel: Hey, um, your father is listening. What’s up?

Lucy: You forgot.

Daniel: Forgot what?

Lucy: Really?

Daniel: Hey, I’m– I’m sorry. I just– I got this deadline. And– [ Sighs ]

Lucy: You’re not busy. You were just staring into space like– like this.

Daniel: Okay, cool. Thank you for the mockery. You have my undivided attention.

Lucy: So, you know how you want me to, like, talk about my feelings and stuff?

Daniel: Mm-hmm. Always.

Lucy: So, you should tell me why you’ve been so grumpy all morning. You yelled at the coffee machine earlier, and you’ve obviously forgotten that I don’t have school today, and we were going to go to the gallery show.

Daniel: Oh, yeah, right.

Lucy: You sound just like mom.

Daniel: What is that supposed to mean?

Lucy: I asked her if she was still planning on coming with us and she basically said the exact same thing. “Oh, yeah, right.”

***********************=************=***************

Tucker: Bonjour, Ashley. I know where you are. And I know what you’re doing. I’m trying to stay out of it but I just can’t. You could be at the bistro this very minute. And I hope you are, because the suspense is killing me. Not that there’s any question about what the staff would tell you. What I’m dying to know is how you’ll react to the truth, what happens when you finally come face to face with reality.

Ashley: Son of a bitch.

Tucker: Morning.

Nate: Morning. Coffee, please.

Tucker: So are you and Audra an item now?

Nate: Why do you ask?

Tucker: Oh, you seem pretty cozy up in her suite. I saw the sparkle in her eyes. She may have said something.

Nate: I seriously doubt that. But if Audra and I are an item or not, that’s none of your business

**†******************************************”””***

Tucker: You will never understand the bond that audra and I share.

Nate: But I do. You’re alone. You’ve got nothing, no one. So you cling to some fantasy that there’s more to that bond with audra than there actually is. You’re no good for her, tucker. So if you care about audra, you’ll let her go. Man, she is brilliant and talented, but she’ll never achieve her true potential with your dead weight around her neck.

Tucker: She’s gotten pretty far with my dead weight around her neck.

Nate: Oh, I’m sure she’d appreciate you taking all the credit.

[ Scoffs ]

Tucker: I have supported Audra all this time because I understand her. And she understands me. We understand each other. That’s why I know she’s got something in the works, something aimed at me. You know anything about it?

Nate: No clue.

Tucker: No clue. Her confidence is alluring, isn’t it? I have a sneaking suspicion that she thinks she can get one over on me, and she would be very insulted if I just let it slide. So please tell your friend– or your lover or whatever the hell she is for you– that I’m onto her. And if you’re thinking of throwing in with her in this little game, as smart as you think you are, you can’t beat me.

Phyllis: You seemed to enjoy yourself. I certainly did. There’s obviously a lot of heat between us. I think that we should explore what could come next.

Danny: There is no next. I’m not interested. says otherwise.

Danny: Look, would you just stop it, please? Whatever this– this flirtation, or whatever you want to call it, is completely one-sided and it can’t go anywhere.

Phyllis: It could if you let it.

Danny: I don’t want it to. Don’t you understand? There’s too much history and a lot of it bad and you’re still you. Look, I’m sorry if that sounds harsh, but you’re not listening, and I need to get through to you. I really do.

Phyllis: That’s not fair. That’s not fair. I’ve changed. You know I’ve changed. You know that. How many times have you said that lately that I’ve changed? So you see it. You believe it.

Danny: I want to, if only for Daniel’s sake. I have worked really hard to convince myself, and then you pull a stunt like this. Posting that video, implying that there’s something romantic going on between us when you know that there’s not. So, no. From my standpoint, no, you haven’t changed at all.

“””********************************

Danny: This is pointless.

Phyllis: I beg to differ.

Danny: Look, would you just forget the kiss, all right? That’s the least of it. Posting that video online, suggesting that we’re romantically involved? That was way out of line.

Phyllis: Are you kidding me right now? Really? You’re a rock star. People post videos of you all the time, Danny. Walking down the street, eating at a restaurant. As long as it’s respectful, it’s fine. Or maybe this is about something else. Is it? Is it about your precious Christine? That you want her to feel safe, and I feel–

Danny: Wrong.

Phyllis: Excuse me?

Danny: This isn’t gonna work. It doesn’t feel good. It doesn’t feel right. Maybe some version of friends, for Daniel’s sake, but… anything else, no. Never.

Danny: Hey, gorgeous. Boy, am I glad to see you.

Christine: Oh, wait. What, did Phyllis get called away on an emergency? Is that why you suddenly have free time? video of me at the piano

Tucker: There she is. Didn’t expect to see you so soon. Or ever, after our last conversation. Hi. Uh, just my usual, thank you.

Audra: I’ll put it on my tab, please.

Tucker: Oh, sweet. The deluxe apology.

Audra: What’s a few angry words between old friends

**********************************************

Audra: I had some time to think things through, that’s all.

Tucker: Uh-huh. This is a major reversal. You were very decisive up in your suite.

Audra: Yeah, I had a knee-jerk reaction to the mention of jabot.

Tucker: And Ashley.

Audra: But I’m calmer now.

Tucker: No, you’ve– you’ve pushed back before. This is different. And you– you– you were done with me, right? In all ways.

Audra: Well, I decided to leave Newman media. Effective immediately.

Tucker: Well, now.

Audra: There’s no upward mobility for me there. And it’s a closed shop. Only the Newmans are allowed in the inner circle, and that’s never going to change. I thought it was worth it to have it on my resume, but why bother now when there are other, much better options on the table?

Tucker: And you just realized this?

Audra: Yes. I just realized that.

Tucker: Same job it was a week ago. Something must have happened.

Audra: Think whatever you want. Is your offer still on the table?

Tucker: Maybe. Only if you’re honest with me.

Audra: About?

Tucker: Something tells me you didn’t quit. Something tells me you ticked Nikki off and she fired you. Hm?

[ Tucker laughs ] She did, didn’t she? What’d you do to lose your job, Audra?
