Jack: Ashley! Are you okay? Where are you?

Ashley: Calm down, Jack. I’m fine, all things considered.

Jack: Wait. What does thn?S that am okay and I’m in Paris.

Jack: Why are you there and your new husband is here?

Ashley: Because it’s all changed. Everything has changed.

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

Tucker: Have you heard from your mother?

Abby: I have, actually.

Devon: You have?

Abby: Yeah. My mom called me when I was on my way back to the house. She’s in Paris. My mom told me that she and tucker got in a fight and that he disrespected her and didn’t consider her feelings or anything that she wanted at all.

Tucker: Well, in that case, you don’t have the total picture.

Abby: It’s over. The marriage, your business partnership and my mom made one thing very clear. She told me not to worry about her, that it’s you I should be worried about.

Devon: What are you talking about?

Abby: Well, tucker is hurt and angry and she reminded me that a hurt and angry tucker can be very unpredictable. You know, everything I predicted that was gonna happen, it happened. You haven’t even been married to my mom for one month and you completely broke her heart.

Tucker: It’s the other way around. But I could never convince you, could I? Ashley’s right about one thing. It’s over. All of it. I’m done

Tucker: Well… that was a triumphant return, if I do say so myself.

Audra: Yeah, you know, five minutes ago, you were bitter and miserable. You know, I might prefer that, uh, to obnoxiously cocky.

Tucker: Five minutes ago. I guess time flies when you’re having fun, huh? And I didn’t hear any complaints from you. You poor thing. Having to spend your nights with Kyle Abbott. No wonder you came to me.

Audra: Like I said, obnoxiously cocky.

Tucker: Well. I appreciate the revival, nonetheless.

Audra: It wasn’t a revival, tucker. Okay? It was a one-time thing.

Tucker: Mm. No ulterior motives? No hidden agendas?

Audra: Are you questioning my heart of gold? Look, I told you. Look, I– I was worried about you, okay?

Tucker: You’re always thinking two steps ahead. You’re on a fishing expedition. You want to know more about what happened with me and Ashley. Huh? Want to have some pillow talk about my marriage?

*****************”*”””******

Tucker: Unfortunately, Ashley and I just have different priorities. And as it turns out, irreconcilable differences.

Audra: That sounds like divorce talk.

Tucker: Yeah, uh, don’t– that’s all I want to say about her.

Audra: Fine.

Tucker: I’m gonna do what I should have done when I first moved back to town, what I originally planned.

Audra: Um, you were gonna target jabot?

Tucker: I’m gonna do more than target it. I’m gonna take the sucker. Right from the Abbotts. In its entirety.

Audra: Bold.

Tucker: Does it worry you?

Audra: Why would it?

Tucker: Your relationship with Kyle?

Audra: Hm. You know, we– we’re having so much fun together. Even, you know, if we now have to keep our– our affair a secret.

Tucker: You do? Is that some kind of new Audra game?

Audra: It’s an edict from Nikki Newman.

Tucker: Oh, did she drop the hammer on you? She doesn’t like the idea of you sleeping with her granddaughter’s husband?

Audra: Anyway, um, if we were to resume our connection, I’d want something in return.

Tucker: Yeah, there it is. There’s that old black magic. Make a deal with the devil.

Audra: Okay. You taught me everything I know. Well, you know, almost everything.

Tucker: Okay, what you got in mind?

Esther: Sharon tells me that her new venture with you and nick imploded, and so she’s moving forward on her own, which leaves you out in the cold again.

Adam: I can tell you were just sick about it.

Esther: What do you expect?

Adam: You know, maybe someday, you could remind me what I’ve done to make you despise me.

Esther: What, are you kidding me? One word. Chloe.

Adam: Look, I have done everything in my power to make sure that your daughter might have a change of heart about me.

Esther: Well, she doesn’t hate you anymore and you can thank your lucky stars for that, but she doesn’t trust you either.

Adam: Yeah, she’s in a lot of company there.

Esther: You know, I believe in change and second chances. I mean, we all deserve that much. But you have had all the second chances in the world and you have wasted every single one of them. It’s a crime. You could do so much better, but you don’t. No wonder no one thinks you’ll ever change.

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

Tucker: She is reconsidering starting a new venture with me.

Abby: Why?

Tucker: You’ll have to ask her.

Abby: Just like that?

Tucker: Yeah, just like that.

Abby: So, you did nothing to initiate this change of heart? I mean, this decision just came out of nowhere? No. No, I am not buying it. You must have done something. Something to upset her, something to push her away.

Tucker: Of course I did because I’m just so diabolical, aren’t I? I just have no shred of human decency. Can’t even keep promises, can I? For your information, I did everything right this time, abby, everything. But your mother is incapable of seeing that I have changed. And what neither she nor you seem to understand is I have my limits too.

Adam: Father.

Victor: Hi, son.

Adam: To what do I owe the pleasure? Let me guess. You’re here to take a victory lap after exiling me from newman media. Well, go ahead, dad. I probably deserve it.

Victor: That is not why I’m here.

Adam: Then you’ve had a change of heart and you’re here to apologize to me?
Victor: I’m not here to apologize, nor am I here to gloat. I’m here as your father to see how you’re doing.

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

Adam: I don’t know. Where we go from here is anyone’s guess. Water?

Victor: Thank you, son.

Adam: I, uh, I already made amends to Nick and Sharon and I know that my life probably needs a complete reset before I self-destruct. Probably sooner rather than later.

Victor: Be more specific.

Adam: Always a stickler for the details, huh?

Victor: Son, the devil lies in the details.

Daniel: Hey. Good morning.

Heather: What’s left of it.

Daniel: What are you talking about? I mean, I’ll have you know, that I already put in hours at the office and I’m only here because I was meeting Lucy to have breakfast, who you just missed.

Heather: I know how hard you’ve been working, I– I– I– I didn’t meant to–

Daniel: Didn’t mean to what? Joke with me? You can joke with me. It’s okay.

Heather: Okay, thanks. You know, it’s just, I know what it has taken to get to this good place for you and– and I guess I just– I really want to make sure I’ve made that clear.

Daniel: You have. What’s, um, what’s going on with you? Um, I really wish that my mother didn’t grill you about moving back to the states and living here. I– I hope that she didn’t put you too much on the spot there.

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

Diane: Uh, it’s soon, but gives us time to plan.

Jack: A– a– about that, um, do you think you could trust me to handle all of the arrangements, so that it could be a surprise for you?

Diane: What are you up to? Come on, give me a hint.

Jack: Well, a hint would be counter to the whole idea of a surprise. Oh, you’re trying to break my resolve, aren’t you?

Diane: Come on, just a tiny little hint.

Jack: Okay, um, it will be dazzling and it will be a reflection of who we are and what we have.

Diane: Hmm. I’m intrigued.

Jack: Yeah.

Billy: Productive meeting.

Jack: As a matter of fact, it was. Uh, we were discussing our wedding reception.

Adam: You sound surprised, which is understandable. You know, it’s how I’ve always operated. Never apologize, never back down, eyes on the prize. I just can’t believe this is what it’s taken.

Sally: For what?

Adam: For me to see who I am and how I’ve been living. I mean, this is finally the wake-up call that I needed. I mean, the– the second part of the wake-up call.

Sally: What was the first part?

Adam: Losing our daughter the same moment I lost you.

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

Diane: You have to know that we love you, and we always want your best interests at heart.

Jack: If we see you going down a bad path, we are always going to speak up.

Kyle: Oh, no, no, no, actually it’s a great path. You know, it’s a new life, a new job. I’m having a blast and loving every minute of it. Just like smiling jack in his old days.

Jack: I want you to come back to Jabot. I think we should talk about the possibilities.

Kyle: I have a job at a media company that is growing and thriving. I work alongside Nikki Newman. I don’t need anything. Oh, um, and I broke things off with Audra Charles. So, what exactly is the problem? She found it.

Diane: It’s my understanding that audra is being kept on at newman media.

Kyle: Yeah, we can work together without being in a personal relationship.

Diane: Was it your idea to break things off?

Kyle: This has nothing to do with summer, if that’s what you’re asking. We’re not going to get back together and audra is not to blame.

Diane: You’re the one who brought her up.

Kyle: Yeah, because you’re both so worried I’m on this road to hell.

Abby: Well, Dominic is actually in music class, which you would know if you had called before you stopped by, but I figure that you’re not actually here to see Dominic, so what’s up? If you’re here because you want to talk about my mom and Uncle Jack, I actually have some good news for you.

Billy: Well, I’ll take that. I could use some good news.

Abby: Well, she is currently on her way to paris on her honeymoon with tucker, which means she is putting this battle between her and Uncle Jack behind her and she is moving forward, focusing on her new life with her new husband.

Billy: Wow. So much for fool me once, huh? Look, I’m not worried about Ashley, okay? I do wish them both the best, and I really hope that she and Jack can get on solid ground again.

Abby: But you are worried about something, so talk to me.

Billy: It’s Diane, Abby. I’m afraid Ashley was right all along. Jack’s new wife… is gonna be a danger for Jabot.

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

Jack: I don’t know if I made it clear, but I am sick about where things stand between the two of us. All this conflict, all this suspicion. It’s like deja-vu, except it’s you instead of Ashley and you’re not married to somebody I despise.

Billy: And I’m taller than our sister, and I have brown hair. What’s your point exactly?

Jack: I’m just hoping there’s something you and i can actively do to keep this from escalating

Mariah: That’s so disappointing. Could you learn that? ‘Cause that would be really useful.

Devon: Sure. Now, how about, uh– for you, about “brave”?

Devon: Yeah.

Billy: I’m not gonna go to war with jack.

Lily: Good. I’m very glad to hear it because I do not think it’s a war you could win.

[ Lily sighs ] Billy, come on. You know, I’m right. Okay, for a lot of reasons and the casualties would be significant.

Billy: And if I do nothing, the damage to jabot could be significant. I don’t know what the right thing to do is. I really don’t.

[ Billy sighs ]

Lily: Do you want to know what I do when I have a big decision like this?

Billy: What’s that?

Lily: Wwdd. What would dad do? Because my dad, he was very, very wise, but especially with family business. And so was John Abbott.

[Lily inhales deeply] Anyway, I have to go. Are you good?

Billy: I’m better now

Ashley: Okay, okay, okay. Listen, I will back off. I will give her the benefit of the doubt for now.

Jack: Still choking on those words, are you?

Ashley: Like a grape.

Jack: It doesn’t have to be all warm and fuzzy. We haven’t always agreed with each other’s choice of partners.

Ashley: Oh, really? Phyllis.

Jack: Yeah. And vVctor.

Ashley: Right. Whatever.

Jack: Look, we can be kind and tolerant.

Ashley: To a point. And that point, you’re not gonna like it, but it’s gonna hinge on Diane. It has to. I mean, if she behaves herself and– and she turns out to be everything that you’ve said she is all along, then I will not just lay down my sword, I will bury the damn thing.

Jack: I will help you buy the shovel,

Ashley: Okay, but… if she takes one misstep, I’m telling you right now, and if all my fears about her come true, I will be back with a vengeance, Jack, and I will be holding that sword so high.

Nick: Nope, but I’m sure the subject of Newman Media will come up, but beyond that, I have no idea.

Sharon: Well, I’ve given a lot of thought to that since we talked about it.

Adam: Would you care to share, Sharon? Oh, that’s right.

Sharon: Very funny, Adam.

Adam: Well, are you implying that I can’t be trusted with sensitive information?

Nick: You seem to be in a pretty good mood for somebody who just got busted for trying to screw over his partners.

Adam: Okay, I never attempted to screw over anybody.

Nick: Yeah, what would you call it?

Adam: Business. I made a play, it didn’t work, so on to the next.

Sharon: If there is a next.

Nick: If we’re still a part of any of this.

Adam: Well, I’m guessing some of us will be. Probably the ones who know how to run a media company. I think that’ll narrow the field a little bit.

Sharon: Wow, you never give up, do you?

Adam: Not when I am right.

Nick: And in your mind, that’s always.

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

Victor: Yes, indeed it does. Uh, Nate Hastings will no longer be involved with Newman Enterprises. And your mother will become the new Director of Research and Development for Newman Media. And Victoria will become my COO.

Nick: [ Scoffs ] Your COO?

Victor: Yes. Taking back the reigns of my company. I own the damn thing. My name on it.

Nick: Adam has done nothing but bring pain to all of our lives. He thrives on deception and blackmail. Help me understand this.

Victor: He’s my son. He has earned it.

Nick: What does that make me?

Victor: You’re just not as capable, son. That’s all. Proud of you, my boy. Very proud of you.

Sharon: Can you blame me?

Adam: No. Honestly, I’m not surprised. I would think you and Nick are pretty pissed at me, since I openly pushed to run Newman Media when our companies merged together.

Sharon: I wish I could say that I didn’t see this coming, but it makes sense that you would try to grab hold of power.

Adam: So, what now? Are you sitting here, plotting how best to get revenge on me? To teach me a lesson?

Sharon: Because that’s how I am.

Adam: No. No, you’re not. I– that wasn’t fair. I– but, I understand, if you’re upset with me.

Sharon: Not everything is about you, Adam. After everything that’s happened, I’m thinking in much bigger terms now. I’ve made a decision. It’s one that will affect the entire operation.

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

Adam: Okay. What if I say, “please?”

Sharon: I’d like to call a meeting with the three of us and Victor after I have a chance to speak to Nikolas again.

Adam: So, this is something that nick gets a vote on and I don’t? Sharon, I gotta say, I don’t love being left out of these discussions.

[ Sharon laughing ] What?

Sharon: You are joking, right? You tried to seize power in a company that we’re supposed to be building together, and now you’re worried about being left out of the loop.

Adam: Okay. I’m sorry that you’re looking at my request as an attempt at a coup. To me, it– it was just logical

Sally: Is your offer to fund a business for me still on the table?

Nick: Yes, of course. Always.

Sally: Okay, ’cause i don’t want it to interfere with our relationship. That has always been my biggest fear.

Nick: What?

Sally: Look. Okay. I– I will give you a business plan, a profit and loss margin, and–

Nick: Sally. Sally. You don’t have to do this. Seriously, you don’t have to pitch me. Whatever it is you set out to do, I have complete trust and faith in you.

Billy: That was nice, that little work session on the patio. Exactly what the doctor ordered.

Jack: Gotta enjoy these last days of summer.

Billy: It’s a nice change of pace instead of rushing off to the office. I gotta say it’s quiet around here for a change.

Jack: Yeah, Mrs. Martinez took Harrison to the farmer’s market, I think. Everybody else is at work.

Billy: I guess I’m struck by the, uh, the lack of snarky comments and open hostility.

Jack: You’re referring, of course, to our sister and her new husband.

Billy: I wonder if this lack of communication is a good thing or if it’s, you know, pending doom. I mean, what’s the over/under that they’re really moving on from this anti-Diane world domination plan?

Jack: I have no idea what the odds are, but I’m not about to bet on anything right no–

Tucker: Hey, guys. You miss me?

Billy: Oh, yes, tucker, we’ve been pining over you. It’s been torture.

Jack: What brings you by, tucker? I seem to remember asking you to return your house key.

Tucker: Oh, yeah, you’re gonna get that. I just came by for some personal items. And I believe Ashley made arrangements to have the rest of our stuff moved out in the next week or so. And we’ll be outta your hair.

Jack: Now why do I have a hard time believing that?

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

Diane: Ashley, your future affects jack’s future. So, what the two of you were talking about is very much my business. I want abbott family harmony as much as anybody.

Ashley: Of course you do.

Diane: You know what, if you don’t believe me, I really don’t care. I’ve had to resign myself to the fact that there are certain members of the family who will never accept me as an Abbott.

[ Ashley sighs ] It’s disappointing and I know that it breaks Jack’s heart.

Ashley: Yeah, well, you know, still, your words mean nothing to me. Sorry, they just don’t. They are as sincere today as they were a week ago or a year ago or whenever it was we first met all those decades ago. You even died but you came back. So, see, some things never change. You certainly have not.

Nate: Wow. [ Chuckles ] Hard to believe you managed that with a straight face considering you just tried to muscle your way into getting control of Newman Media.

Adam: What do you mean? You keep trying to make this about me.

Nate: You’re giving me way too much credit. Do you really imagine that I can influence your father?

Tucker: Your sister would definitely tell you that I do not.

Billy: My sister’s usually right. I’m actually glad I ran into you, I was– I was thinking about you and Ashley, wondering what the status is about the plan for Jabot.

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

Billy: Yeah. [ Sighs ] Diane has no clue how to run jabot, okay? My family’s company is nothing more to her than an opportunity to grab more power and control, which means that the threat to my father’s legacy still very much exists. I don’t think Ashley has changed her mind about that.

Tucker: But she has realized how futile it is to fight with Jack when he insists on making this fatal mistake with Diane.

Billy: You’re dead right about that one, tucker. This is a fatal mistake and I just don’t believe that Ashley has decided that she doesn’t care about protecting my father’s legacy.

[ Tucker chuckling ]

Tucker: Billy, come on, man. This isn’t really about Ashley or John Abbott. I see right through you.

Billy: Is that so?

Adam: Look, all this anger that you’ve been carrying around for months, it shouldn’t be directed at me.

Nick: Really?

Adam: Not all of it. I assume that you know what dad did to sally by offering her a great opportunity at Newman, even finding her a replacement at Chancellor-Winters, and then, sorry, not happening.

Nick: Yeah, Sally told me.

Adam: He left her with nothing. He messed with her the way that he messed with us. She didn’t deserve that.

Nick: I know.

Adam: Well, then why do we keep putting up with it?

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

Nick: Look, I never wanted sally to take dad’s job offer. I knew he would just mess with her head.

Adam: Or he never intended to follow through. And dad didn’t just renege on the offer. He shut down her options at chancellors-winters first. He just left her hanging out to dry.

Nick: Sally’s going to be just fine, all right? She will get through this. She will find something else.

Adam: Yeah, of– of course she will. That’s not the point. I mean, he hurt her and it meant nothing to him. It was cold and it was calculated like…

Nick: It’s a chess move.

Adam: Exactly. Just some expendable piece on the board, one step closer to his real goal.

Nick: And what do you think that is, Adam?

Adam: It– it’s us. It’s about you and it’s about me. You’ve been walking around for months, angry at me because I decided to defy him and ignore this ridiculous decree that we not merge the companies when it makes sense from a business perspective. So why would he do that?

Nick: Look, what happened with Sally, it’s–

Adam: Just another manipulation. It’s another power move. Only this time he used a woman that we both care about to do it. He had to take back control by showing us he’s still in charge. So what I don’t understand is, why you are not more pissed off about that?

Sally: Yes, and I was a lot older than you. You know, I– I thought that if I just took off that all of my problems would just disappear with me. But guess what? They followed me everywhere I went, and they did not go away until I figured out what I needed to do.

Connor: That’s just it. I don’t know what to do.

Sally: You’ll figure it out. But it’s really hard to have that happen if you keep it all inside. You should tell the people that love you and care about you what’s going on. You just talk to them like you’re talking to me. I did call your dad. He and your mom are waiting for you at the coffee house. Would you let me walk you back there.

Billy: You’re kidding, right? I mean, you gotta be kidding. Ashley, as your brother, trust me, take the offer because with diane involved, the family, the company, all of it, it’s gonna go to hell.

Jack: What is it with you? You can’t go five minutes without making some snide comment to piss me off. What is it? Insecurity? Jealousy? Just bad habits?

Billy: Do I have to pick one, Jack? You know what? Why don’t you stop gaslighting our sister, you sanctimonious ass–

Tucker: I’m sorry. Would you please shut up? This is supposed to be our evening. Ashley’s and mine, not yours. And I’ll be damned if anything is going to let you ruin it. If this isn’t where you wanna spend your evening, take it somewhere else. Or you know what? Let’s you and I take it somewhere else. My apologies.

Ashley: No, it’s– we’re not going anywhere.

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

Ashley: Yeah. Billy, I’m sorry. Uh, what Jack said, did it hurt you?

Billy: No, it’s okay. There’s no need to apologize. I’ve got thick skin. I’m an Abbott, okay? So, Mr. and Mrs., Congratulations. I wish you nothing but the best.

Tucker: Thanks.

Ashley: Yeah, bye.

Billy: Shall we?

Tucker: Bye.

Ashley: Okay. Well, no problem. More champagne for us, right?

Tucker: I’ll drink to that. See what I did there?

Ashley: That’s good. So, anybody want some cake?

Adam: Tell that to our father. Merging this company is a good idea. You know it, Sharon knows it, our father even knows it. He’s just being difficult to put me in my place. And Victoria, she won’t go along with it because she’s threatened by me.

Nick: No, Adam, no. She hates you. It’s a big difference.

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

Nick: You know, this. I– it’s another example. Look at me. She is not with you anymore. She is with me. You need to respect that.

Adam: Nick, Sally ordered the food. See, she set the table. She unpacked boxes for me. You see, she thinks that she loves you, and I’m part of her past because I hurt her, but the memories of that hurt are not going to last forever. And soon she’s going to remember what it’s like to be with somebody who loves her more than you ever will. Feeling sluggish or weighed down?

Nick: Now, you are delusional and selfish. Sally doesn’t want your love anymore. She doesn’t want your vision for the future. You need to move on. She has made her choice.

Adam: Yeah, you. But you’ll never put her first, and you damn well know it, nick.

Nick: You just keep bringing up that night with Cameron. Sally seems to understand, but you just can’t do it, can you?

Adam: You know, let me make something clear. I don’t owe you anything. I respect Sally’s feelings, but yours, they do not concern me. I’m fine to work with you. It’s what Sharon wants, it’s what victor wants. And it’s important assets that Sharon brings in the financial backing that victor has, but personally, I don’t care what you think or how you feel.

Nick: This is the life you are choosing. Think about it. You’re just so focused on everything that you think was stolen from you, Newman Media and sally’s love, but you can’t think beyond your own rage and loss. You have nothing and no one and you can’t blame anyone but yourself for that.

Adam: Get out, nick. Sally is waiting for you, so don’t disappoint her.

Billy: I like having my kids near us, you know? I’m not– look, let me ask you. Are– are you– you want them going away to boarding school because you do believe that’s the best thing for them or are you okay with them going away because that gives you time to focus on your work and your relationship with Nate?

Victoria: What? You cannot seriously be accusing me of sending the kids away so I can fixate on my love life. Don’t even dare go there, billy. You haven’t approved of anyone that I’ve been involved with.

Billy: How many times have I been right?

Victoria: You haven’t been wrong in some cases. You know, I’m starting to wonder if maybe you have a problem with me being happy without you. Is that– is that what you want, Billy? You want for me to be miserable?

Billy: I’ve never, ever wanted that. So, either you don’t know me well enough, which I don’t think is true, or something is– is really wrong right now.

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

Victoria: You’re right. I do know you better than that. I was out of line. I’m sorry.

Billy: I’m sorry, okay? Victoria, you are an amazing mother, okay? We know that. Our kids wouldn’t be the incredible kids they are if it weren’t for you.

Victoria: And yet, you have an issue with me and nate.

Billy: It’s more of a concern than an issue, okay? Because I– I– I can’t help it. I think you deserve better than what you’ve had in the past. Ashland, jt… me.

Victoria: Eh. You know. All things considered, you weren’t really that bad.

Billy: All things considered meaning that I didn’t actually fake cancer or try to kill you? Yeah, you’re right. I probably should get points for that.

Victoria: It’s the little things.

Traci: If you’re asking about ashley, she’s a little nervous. She’s maybe more nervous than I’ve ever seen her.

Jack: Well, that seems appropriate when you’re about to make the biggest mistake of your life.

Traci: Oh, stop. You promised. I’m– these are good nerves. These are bride-to-be nerves. Our sister is genuinely excited and happy, and we should be happy for her. I mean, who knows? Maybe this really is her time.

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

Tucker: I understand your skepticism, victor, it’s– I get it, it’s, uh… but you’re wrong this time, actually, you know. She does love me and I love her. Sticking it to– to Diane and jack is icing on the wedding cake.

Victor: You’re forgetting who you’re talking to. I know that you and ashley bought a company in Europe.

[ Tucker scoffing ] As the foundation for a new business.

Tucker: Wow. Man, you never cease to amaze me. We thought we had a tight lid on that one. Not even jack knows about it.

Victor: And he’s not even a silent partner in it.

Tucker: Mm-mm. Score one for you.

Victor: So… I’ve known Ashley for a while. She’s not going to sever ties with jabot. She simply is doing this in order to wrest control away from jack. You’re just along for the ride.

Tucker: Yeah. You might be right. On the other hand, you might be wrong,

[ Victor chuckling ] But I got a wedding–

Victor: You’re talking in riddles. Be careful, son.

Sharon: Oh, my gosh. Thank you for bringing aria by. I swear she has gotten bigger since the last time I saw her.

Mariah: Since yesterday?

Sharon: Well, babies change quickly.

Tessa: If you’re trying to imply that you want to see aria every day, message received.

Mariah: The only way to get her to settle down is by driving her around now. So, once she was conked out, we figured we would risk it and come grab a cup of coffee, and also, check in on you.

Tessa: But everyone needs to stay quiet, so she’ll stay asleep.

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

Mariah: That is a very good point. I mean, Sharon and Nick, great. Sharon, nick and Adam? Maybe not so great. And once upon a time, Adam was obsessed with Sharon and now I guess it– it’s sally, but who knows what’s next for that guy?

[ Both laughing ] But on the flip side, how stressful and uncomfortable is it gonna get at Jabot?

Tessa: Hmm. I know that you want to look at every angle, assess every risk, but you’re not gonna have complete information to make this decision. You’re gonna have to trust your judgment. What do you think will give you the best chance at success and happiness?

Sally: I don’t get it. Why aren’t you as excited about this as I am?

Chloe: Um, because I’m not new in town. Because I have actual brain cells that are connected. Because this is victor Newman that we’re talking about.

Sally: Exactly. Victor Newman has offered us a contract to head up a whole new design division at Newman Enterprises. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Chloe: So, you think accepting an offer from victor is a good idea, but letting nick back us with no strings attached isn’t?

Sally: Okay, Chloe, we’ve already been over this. My relationship with nick is far too important to let money get involved. It will muddy things and I’m not willing to run that risk. But this thing with victor, it’s clean.

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

Nikki: I trust my son’s instincts, and they are telling him that you have a hidden agenda. Now, if that turns out to be true, consider yourself forewarned. It will never come to fruition.

Nate: You have my word, Nikki.

Nikki: Newman enterprises has survived much more dangerous threats than any self-serving game plan that you could come up with. Actually, it’s very simple. The house always wins. Am I making myself clear?

Nate: Crystal.

Nikki: I’ll tell you what. I have a quick meeting outside of the office. Why don’t you meet me at the athletic club? With Victoria in Madrid, it’s a perfect opportunity for us to sit down, just the two of us, and you can tell me how you see your future at Newman

Ashley: I’m so happy we decided to spend the night here. I’m so sick of the Jack and Diane show.

Tucker: Thank god one of us had the genius idea to do a little dress rehearsal for our own wedding night.

Ashley: Yeah.

Tucker: Or should I say undress rehearse

************””””””””””””””””

Tucker: Can I just have one piece of toast with my coffee? Thank you very much. So, what do you make of billy’s growing disillusionment with his older brother? Can that be useful to us?

Ashley: I don’t know. He was absolutely furious with him though, wasn’t he?

Tucker: Yeah.

Ashley: Enough to betray jack? Is that what you’re hinting at?

Tucker: Just looking at all the angles.

Ashley: Billy’s capable of it. He and jack have gone head to head on several issues over the years. Do you think we should lead him along, and see where it goes?

Tucker: Can he be led along? Or is he still more of a “looking out for number one” type guy.

Ashley: Well, he has been, but I think he’s definitely in a different headspace now. Can you imagine how great it would be if he was on our side, tucker? How helpful that would be? It would be incredible.

Tucker: I know, so, let’s begin the grand persuasion.

Ashley: Hm. Good idea. Billy. Join us.
