Daniel: How’s your food?

Lily: It’s good.

Daniel: Mm-hmm. Yeah, I forgot how much you liked, uh, chocolate with your pasta.

Lily: Mm-hmm. Who doesn’t? I heard what you said. I’m listening to you, okay? I know what you’re doing. I just have a lot on my mind right now.

Daniel: What kind of stuff do you have on your mind right now?

Lily: Whether I should order pasta with whipped cream next.

[ Daniel chuckling ]

Daniel: You know, I don’t think that’s the stuff you’re thinking about. And in case, um, in case you might be upset with me, um, about other stuff, I, uh, I would just like to clear something up.

Lily: What’s that?

Daniel: I was getting ready to show chloe and sally the apartment and then, you know, sally, she started asking me if I had any general, like, design ideas.

Lily: You mean besides the poker table and folding chairs?

Daniel: Yeah, those. And then heather and lucy, they just showed up at the door. I mean, I didn’t even know that they were back in town and there they were, you know. I guess lucy wanted to surprise me and then well they succeeded on that. But, um, I mean, there was nothing planned about it. You know, I– I was hoping that you would be back from your meeting with devon and we could talk to sally, talk about her ideas over dinner.

Lily: Okay, daniel. Daniel.

Daniel: Yeah.

Lily: You’re babbling.

Daniel: Well, you’re not really making this easy.

Lily: What are you talking about? What am I not making easy?

Daniel: I’m not worried about you and lucy. I know that the two of you are good. You guys are like pals, but… I just want to make sure that heather moving back to genoa city isn’t going to be a problem for us.

Phyllis: Hey, you. Hey.

Danny: Hi.

Phyllis: Hi.

Danny: Good to see you.

Phyllis: You too. I’ve been looking forward to this all day. I mean, this and dinner.

Danny: Oh, um, I’m– I’m sorry. I, well, unfortunately, we have to reschedule it.

Phyllis: Oh, okay. Uh, did something come up like a last-minute gig or something?

Danny: Oh, no, no, no. It was nothing like that. Daniel had a last-minute change in his plans.

Phyllis: Oh, I get it. You told him that you invited me, right?

Danny: No, I didn’t even have a chance to. He just texted me.

Phyllis: Oh, okay. Well, just because daniel changed his plans doesn’t mean we have to. I mean, we could still have dinner together, right?

Chance: Hey. What are you doing here? Hey, mom.

Nina: Hi, honey. Oh, how are you doing? I just talked to your doctor. She said you’re gonna be just fine.

Chance: Yeah, of course I am. I take after my mother. I’m tough. Nothing can bring me down.

Nina: Ah, I love you. Now, what the hell is wrong with you, putting your mother through this? Oh. Oh, are you okay?

Chance: Hey. No, no, no. No crying. No crying. I can’t deal with the crying.

Nina: What do you expect? We’ve been through this before. You know, I can’t stand the thought of anything happening to you.

Chance: I know.

Nina: And you know, this job, it may not be too dangerous for you, but it’s definitely too dangerous for me.

Chance: Hey, look at me. I’m fine. Okay, I’m good as new.

Nina: Geez.

Chance: That’s a promise. Come on.

Lily: You know, you’re really making more of this than you need to.

Daniel: Well, you’ve been awfully quiet ever since we sat down to dinner.

Lily: That doesn’t mean I’m upset. I’m not upset.

Daniel: Okay, then tell me what’s going on inside your head.

Lily: I don’t know. I just, you know, I’m disappointed that I missed your conversation with sally, that’s all.

Daniel: But you’re helping already. I mean, it was your idea for me to hire sally and it was a brilliant idea. You are a part of all of this.

Lily: Am I being selfish?

Daniel: No. No, you’re not being selfish. I wanted you there. You know that I wanted you there. This was supposed to be our fun little thing and well everything just went a little sideways. What was supposed to be a meeting about me decorating my place, turned into a reunion with my daughter and my ex.

Lily: Yeah, I know it’s fine. It’s fine. Okay. It’s my fault. My meeting with devon ran late. You know, and it’s fine. I’m just bummed that I didn’t get to hear sally’s ideas. I was really looking forward to it, that’s all.

Daniel: Okay. Well, in that case, let’s get out of here. Let’s go back to my place right now. Tell you everything that she said to me. You can tell me what you think.

Lily: I thought you want dessert?

Daniel: Not as much as I want to give you a very private tour of my new apartment.

Lily: Like right now?

Daniel: Like immediately.

Lily: Well, you know what? I guess I’m actually too full for dessert too.

Daniel: Okay. Check, please.

Chance: I’m really sorry, I put you all through this.

Nina: You better be.

Sharon: Can you tell us what happened?

Chance: Yeah. Well, I’ll tell you, I never expected to get shot after a crime had been committed. The guy was long gone.

Summer: Then, how did it happen?

Chance: Well. Thank you. There was a jewelry store robbery downtown. We were working the scene. Robbery was already over. The guy was long gone, but he left a pretty big piece of evidence. And I guess he must have realized that he did because he actually came back to the jewelry store to get it. Guy didn’t think that we’d be there yet, so he was just as surprised to see us as we were to see him.

Nina: And?

Chance: Well, he pulled out a gun and, uh, let out a few shots before we could subdue him. Guess one of those bullets had my name on it.

Nina: Yeah, that seems to be a specialty of yours. Remind me when we get home, I’m changing your name.

[ Chance sighing ]

Chance: I’m really sorry for scaring you all.

Nina: How about this? How about you worry about us later? And just focus just focus on getting better, okay? And then when you’re home where you belong, you are so grounded.

Chance: Great.

Phyllis: I heard there’s this really great restaurant right on the lake. They have the most amazing tiramisu, I’ve heard. I haven’t had tiramisu in so long.

Danny: Santino’s, yeah. I– I heard it’s supposed to be really good.

Phyllis: Yeah. Well, let’s give it a try.

Danny: We’ll have to do a rain check. I’m so sorry, phylis. I– I made other arrangements for dinner when daniel told me his plans changed.

Phyllis: Ah. Hi, christine.

Christine: Phyllis. (Vo) ultimate endless shrimp is herewith a limited time flavor drop. New crispy dragon shrimp. One of seven endless choices. Right now, only at red lobster. Welcome to fun dining.

Summer: Uh, so I should get going, but I’m really glad that you’re gonna be okay.

Chance: It means a lot that you came. Thank you.

Summer: Heard the news. Had to at least check up on you.

Sharon: That’s so sweet.

Nina: It is really sweet. Thank you for your concern.

Summer: Well, chance was really there for me through the whole ordeal with my mom, so.

Nina: Ah, well, I raised him right. Listen, summer. I also wanted to say to you that I’m really sorry about what you went through with your mom. That must have been a nightmare.

Summer: Thanks, nina.

Sharon: She even lost her marriage to the love of her life. It was so heartbreaking.

Summer: Yeah, but I’m doing a lot better now, actually. I– I threw myself into work, which has been great and this guy helped, of course.

Chance: You know I got your back.

Summer: Well, I see you’re in very good hands, so get some rest, okay? And follow their orders.

Nina: Oh, trust me.

Summer: Bye.

Elena: Well, well, well, look who’s awake. And I’m glad you got to spend a little time with your mom and the rest of your fan club. But ladies, I’m gonna have to ask you to leave. You need to get your rest, chief. And we’re gonna be transferring you to a regular room soon.

Chance: Oh, I can’t wait. I gotta get the hell out of here.

Elena: Well, then you better behave yourself.

Sharon: Okay. Well, I will see you in the morning.

Chance: I look forward to that. Thanks for coming.

Sharon: Nina, good night. And you need to get some rest too.

Nina: Yeah. Well, I can only promise to try. Can I just have five more minutes with my son, please?

Chance: Mom.

Elena: Okay. Five minutes on the clock.

Nina: Thank you.

Elena: I’ll be back.

[ Summer sighing ]

Sharon: Are you okay?

Summer: Yeah. Yeah, I’m all– I’m okay. I’m just relieved, you know. I mean when chance was telling us what happened, it kind of hit me how dangerous his job really is. It makes me scared for him and all of them.

Sharon: Well, the good news is he’s going to pull through. He’ll be out of here in no time.

Summer: Yeah. Sharon, I hope you don’t think it’s weird that I came here.

Sharon: No, not at all. I– I know that you two have become friends. I’m sure it was more comforting for chance to wake up to a familiar face rather than some doctor or nurse he’s never seen before in his life.

Summer: Still, I’m sure that he would rather it was you.

Sharon: He opened his eyes and in the end, that’s all that matters. He’s going to be fine and you will be too.

Summer: Yeah. Good night, sharon.

[ Daniel laughing ]

Daniel: Great. You can add one more thing to my to-do list. Turn on the electricity. It’s all right though. I have a little, uh, flashlight app on my– on my dead cell phone. Great.

Lily: It’s dead. It’s okay. I have mine. I think I do somewhere here. Um, actually I do not. I think I left it at my place. Sorry.

Daniel: That’s all right. I thought I had a flashlight around here.

Lily: Well, do you have candles?

Daniel: Oh, yes. Ask you shall receive. Voila. Candles.

Lily: Perfect.

[ Daniel laughing ]

Daniel: Oh, look, here’s a flashlight.

Lily: Oh, look at that. Oh, I remember these. Remember? They were so quaint and useful.

Daniel: Uh-huh.

Lily: Well, if the batteries were any good.

Daniel: Okay. Put that on the to-do list as well. Get more batteries. You know, this might pose a bit of a problem. I mean, sally’s vision would, you know, be a little bit better if you could actually see what she was talking about.

Lily: I don’t know. I think it’s kind of romantic. I think it’s beautiful.

Daniel: Mm-hmm. I think you’re beautiful.

Chance: Oh, boy. All right. Let me have it. Read me the riot act. I know you want to.

Nina: Okay, I will. But only because you’re too groggy to argue with me. And since you’ve been shot, I’m just gonna say this and get it out of the way and hope it gets through that thick skull of yours.

Chance: Yeah, I know what’s coming next.

Nina: Oh, do you? Well, mr. Smarty pants. What’s coming next?

Chance: You think it’s time for me to rethink my life and my future.

Nina: Oh, okay. You’re better at this than I thought you’d be.

Chance: Yeah. You know what?

Nina: What?

Chance: I’ve got a surprise for you. When I got hit and went down, the very first thing I thought was, “not again.”

Nina: Really?

Chance: Yeah. Not that I’m old or anything, I know that. But it made me wonder. Am I getting too old for– for this?

Nina: Yes, you are. You absolutely are.

Chance: Next thing I thought is, “how can I keep putting my sweet mother through this when I love her so much?”

Nina: I love you too. More.

Chance: I love you too more too.

Danny: Does nina want us to bring anything to the hospital?

Christine: No. She’s all good. She said chance is just sleeping.

Danny: Oh, okay.

Phyllis: Wait a second. The hospital? Chance? What happened?

Christine: He was shot in an armed jewelry store robbery.

Phyllis: Oh, my god.

Christine: They caught the guy, but unfortunately he was in the line of fire.

Phyllis: Oh, no, this is horrible. I– I know that summer’s become friends with him. Uh, do you know if she knows?

Christine: I have no idea.

Phyllis: Okay. I’m gonna try to get in touch with her.

Danny: How’s nina holding up?

Christine: Oh, well, she’s nina. She’s invincible. A force of nature.

Danny: Yeah. That she definitely is.

Christine: If I were that robber, I would be thanking my lucky stars that the cops got me before nina did.

Danny: Oh, yeah.

Christine: Um, well, our reservation’s in 15 minutes. We should get going.

Danny: Yeah. Yeah. Good idea. Um, phyllis and I were gonna have dinner with daniel and lucy but they, uh, canceled.

Christine: I heard. That’s um, that’s too bad.

Phyllis: Yeah. But don’t worry, I’m not expecting an invitation to join you two.

Christine: Well, the idea hadn’t crossed our minds.

Phyllis: I’m definitely not gonna intrude in your time.

Christine: Very thoughtful of you.

Phyllis: Enjoy yourself. Have fun.

Danny: Uh, we’ll do dinner soon.

Phyllis: Yes. Absolutely.

Danny: When everyone’s available.

Phyllis: I look forward to it.

Danny: Yeah, uh, me too.

Christine: Good night.

Danny: Good night.

Phyllis: Bon appétit.

Chance: Thanks. Mm.

Nina: So, are you really having a change of heart or are you just placating your mother?

Chance: Mom, I don’t know. I can’t say I’ve fully made up my mind just yet. Plus, I probably shouldn’t be making any life-changing decisions while I’m sitting here with a hole in my chest.

Nina: Probably not. But listen, what if you just–

Chance: Mom. Too soon, okay? Plus, you know how many meds I’m on right now. I don’t even think I can decide what flavor jell-o I want for dinner tonight. Let alone what I wanna do for the rest of my life.

Nina: Okay. You’re right. I’ll wait. And I promise not to nag. Okay, never mind that. I don’t even believe that myself. Okay, how about this? I won’t nag. But is it okay if I really, really hope that you decide not to be a cop anymore?

Chance: As if I could stop you.

Phyllis: I’m sorry, danny.

Danny: Sorry?

Phyllis: Yeah, I’m sorry for getting so upset.

Danny: Phyllis, you don’t ever have to apologize for loving our son.

Phyllis: Do you know how lucky we are?

Danny: The luckiest parents in the world? No doubt about it, our son is one tough kid. You know, maybe I should get him some boxing gloves for christmas.

Phyllis: Boxing gloves?

Danny: Yeah. I mean, if he could lick bacterial meningitis, he could take on mike tyson. No, holyfield.

[ Phyllis laughing ] No, on second thought, that’s not such a good idea.

Phyllis: I was thinking maybe he could become a doctor when he grows up.

Danny: Mm-hmm. Win a nobel prize for discovering one of those amazing miracle cures. Sounds good to me.

Phyllis: What if he becomes a writer and writes one of those mommy dearest books?

Danny: You mean about how crazy his mother is?

[ Phyllis laughing ]

Phyllis: Well, what about you? Think of all the dirt he could dig up on you, the big rock star?

Danny: Good point. Don’t cross him.

Phyllis: Hey, supergirl. Hey, how are you? You heard about chance?

Summer: Yeah.

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness. All right. How’s he doing?

Summer: He’s okay. I just came from the hospital.

Phyllis: Oh, that was so sweet of you to visit him.

Summer: I mean, he’s my friend, so..

Phyllis: Well, I’m glad he’s doing better. I mean… why are you so sad? That’s good news.

Summer: I don’t want to talk about it.

Phyllis: Okay. You don’t want to talk about what?

Summer: Mom, please. Can we just not? Can we not?

Phyllis: Uh, can we not what? I’m just asking you questions about chance? Why–

Summer: Mom, seriously? Why do you have to grill me on like every thought that I have? Every mood that I’m in. Everyone I see. Everything that I do. I just, I don’t– I don’t get it.

Phyllis: Uh, I don’t really understand what’s happening now, but I– you know, I’m your mom, I’m not grilling you. You seem upset and I just want to help you.

Summer: No, that’s the thing. You don’t want to help. You just want to know what’s going on so that you can get involved and I just I really don’t want that.

Phyllis: I’m not trying to get involved, whatever that means. I’m just asking you some simple questions–

Summer: Okay, there’s nothing to get involved with anyway. So, let’s just drop it.

Phyllis: Okay. And you’re– you’re making a big deal out of nothing.

Summer: No, you’re not capable of respecting boundaries. I mean, look at daniel and heather.

Phyllis: What do daniel and heather have to do with this?

Summer: You’re trying to push them together?

Phyllis: Okay. First of all, that’s not true. And if you heard that from your brother, that’s a gross exaggeration. I’m not doing that. I just wanted lucy to come here and be closer to her father and closer to me, frankly.

Summer: See? You interfered.

Phyllis: Um, I didn’t interfere. And listen, I’m your mom, okay? And I care about what happens to you. Answer one question for me.

Summer: What?

Phyllis: Is there something else going on with chance? I mean, maybe something more?

Summer: Mom, please stop. Chance is dating sharon.

Phyllis: Oh, really?

Summer: What difference does it make to you?

Phyllis: It doesn’t really make a difference. But. [ Clearing throat ] I want you to be happy, okay? I care about you and I’m really wondering whether or not you’re gonna find true love. And I’d like you to,here.

Summer: How do you know that?

Phyllis: Uh, history, summer. Sharon is all about going after nick, period. She may do her little thing with chance and marry rey, god rest his soul. And she may do this like cat and mouse thing with adam, this love-hate thing, but at the end of the day, it is all about nick and only about nick for sharon.

Christine: Oh, nina, that is such good news. Yeah. Um, yeah. Sweetie, just keep me posted, okay? Um, and know that we’re thinking of you both and sending you so much love. Okay. Yeah, bye. Chance might be able to come home in a day or two.

Danny: That is amazing. Wow. You know, I– I feel sorry for him obviously, but I almost feel sorry for nina. I mean, you and I both know if she’d been to that jewelry store, she would have taken that bullet for her son.

Christine: Oh, there’s no doubt about that.

Danny: Can you imagine what it’s like saying goodbye to someone you love every single day and– and wondering if you’re ever gonna see them again? Like being married to the chief of police. Could I be a bigger bonehead? I’m sorry, that’s terrible.

Christine: No, you don’t have to say you’re sorry. It’s– it’s okay. I’m– I’m fine.

Danny: I– okay. Changing the subject before I put my other foot in my mouth. You mentioned something about chance and sharon. Um, is it something serious or what?

Christine: I– I don’t know. What I do know is that nina is not too thrilled about it.

Danny: Really? Oh, why is that?

Christine: Well, uh, sharon has sort of a dubious track record. Divorce from nick. Married adam. Uh, widow of chance’s former partner. Not exactly daughter-in-law material.

Danny: Yikes. Okay. Well, I guess it’s really none of my business though.

Christine: Okay. It’s– it’s totally none of my business either.

Danny: Yeah. Well, at the end of the day, I think the best we can do is what? Follow our hearts.

Christine: Well, that’s sweet. And, you know, kind of…

Danny: Corny?

Christine: Corny.

Danny: Simplistic. Relationships, they always seem to be so complicated for no good reason. Whatever happened to the simpler, the better?

Christine: Well, that’s us, right? The poster children of simple relationships.

Danny: Hear, hear.

Daniel: Not that I know anything about decorating, but I really like this one.

Lily: Yeah, I like that one. But, I mean, you know, it’s– it’s your home that sally is designing, right? Not a showroom. So, it’s whatever you like.

Daniel: Yeah. No, totally. She’s, uh, also putting together an idea board for me– well, for us to take a look at.

Lily: Yeah. No, that’ll be good because then you can kind of see how everything will look once it’s together.

Daniel: Mm-hmm.

Lily: What is that? Was that– is that drawers or shelves? Like, I can’t really see.

Daniel: I have no idea.

Lily: You know what? I have a great idea. I have electricity upstairs at my place. Do you want– do you want to go up there?

Daniel: Now, you’re just bragging. You know, if I’m being honest, I, uh, I’m not really missing the electricity right now.

Lily: Oh, me neither. You know what I am missing though? Is a bed, a couch, somewhere comfortable.

Daniel: You know what? I have a floor.

Lily: Oh, no, no, that’s not happening.

Daniel: No?

Lily: No.

Daniel: Okay.

Phyllis: Listen, for a long time, as you know, sharon and I were at odds. We hated each other. That’s the truth.

Summer: Mm. It doesn’t seem like you’re all that fond of her now either.

Phyllis: No, we’re never going to be friends, ever. We’ve learned to tolerate each other, be in the same room together, but we’re not going to be friends. In fact, I was gonna work with her and that imploded for some reason. But, I didn’t even feel the need to throw a grenade.

Summer: Okay. That’s a very big step for you, mom. I am proud of you.

Phyllis: Thank you. Thank you.

Summer: You’re welcome.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. So.

Summer: So.

Phyllis: Um, let me ask you a question. You have feelings for chance.

Summer: Mom, please. I have no desire to try to come between chance and sharon.

Phyllis: Okay. But am I wrong?

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: No, you’re not wrong. Yeah, I do– I do have feelings for him, but it doesn’t mean that I’m going to do anything about them, okay? So now you know, please just stay out of it.

Phyllis: Hm. Well, I’m probably not gonna stay out of it because you’re my supergirl and I love you. And I want you to be happy. Okay? But see, this is the new me and I’m gonna tell you that I’m proud that you’re showing restraint. See the old me, the old me would have been like, “go for it, go for it, go get what you want.” But the new me is proud of your restraint. It’s the new me. And, you know, I mean you didn’t learn that from me, so…

Summer: Well, mom, I am proud of your restraint too. Seriously. Keep up the good work.

Phyllis: Yeah. I love you.

Summer: I love you too.

Lily: Can I ask you a question now? Just to clear something up once and for all.

Daniel: Yeah. You can ask me anything.

Lily: Have I convinced you that I don’t care that heather is moving back here?

Daniel: Almost.

Lily: What? Just almost? Really?

Daniel: Yeah, I don’t think I’m quite there yet. You know, I– I mean, I’m such a skeptic.

Lily: Oh, well, I guess I’ll have to try again.

Daniel: All right.

Christine: Ah, that was delicious. Thank you.

Danny: Thank you. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Christine: Do you want to hear something weird?

Danny: This is me you’re talking to. Of course, I want to hear something weird.

Christine: Okay. Well, it’s not that weird. But to this day, even after all these years, even after eating at some of the best restaurants in the world, I find myself missing your famous pasta sauce.

Danny: You do? Really? Well, then I’ll have to make it again for you sometime. Yeah.

Christine: I would love that. Then, we’ll make it happen.

Elena: All right, mama. It is time to tell your son good night.

Nina: No.

Elena: He needs to get some sleep.

Nina: What about me and my needs? All right. Sorry. I was never very good at walking away from this one. I wanna thank you and everybody on the staff for taking such good care of him. I was really scared, but all of you and the angels came through for us again.

Elena: Well, no one’s happier about that than we are. So, no thanks necessary.

Chance: Go home, mom. I’m not the only one who needs sleep.

Nina: All right. Goodnight, my sweet son.

Chance: Night.

Nina: Sleep well. Remember, someone’s clearly looking out for you.

Sharon: Oh, hi, summer. Hi again.

Summer: Um, any updates on chance?

Sharon: No, none. All systems are still go for him to be released in a day or two.

Summer: Oh, that’s good. I’ll be keeping him in my thoughts. And just so you know, sharon, I am falling for him. I can’t help it. The heart wants what it wants and I’m not gonna back down.

Sharon: Summer. Are you okay? You zoned out for a minute there.

Summer: Yeah. No, I– I– I’m– I’m fine. I’m just really tired. I’m sure you are too. Night.

Sharon: Night.

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless…

Nikki: You just focus on taking care of your aunt. I know how important she is to you.

Claire: There’s something else I should probably tell you about her.

Nikki: Maybe I shouldn’t leave town at all this week. And with all this family upheaval, I mean–

Victor: Sweetheart, I do want you to take that trip. I mean, you’ve been looking forward to seeing your sister, casey, for a long time. And you haven’t seen each other for a while.

Nikki: Please, please. Someone help me. Oh, god. Damn it.

Adam: I know that you will never believe that I could put genuine concern for our father above everything else.

Nick: Never really given me any reason to believe that.

Adam: Really? I’ve never done anything for this family? For your family? Like, donate a kidney to your daughter.

Nick: Yes, Adam. I remember that.

Adam: Yeah, and as far as Victor is concerned, I took a bullet for him. But the world seems to forget about that, too.

Nick: It was a long time ago.

Adam: I’ll tell that to my scar. Okay, you can think what you want, Nick, but I’m concerned about our father. He’s a judgmental, withholding, egomaniac and the thought of him slipping away like this? No, I’m not gonna let that happen without a fight.


Sharon: You girls have been so brave through this whole process. You have been warriors for your daughter. I can understand you feeling nervous and afraid, but don’t forget to let yourself feel the hope and optimism too. I mean, it’s perfectly natural that you would be going through a range of emotions, but let’s just tackle the specifics. What are you really worried about?

Tessa: I mean, uh, what if Aria doesn’t like the hearing aids? It’s not like we can explain it to her.

Sharon: Well, she might not like them. That’s true. But she’ll get used to them, just like with a sippy cup. Remember? It was only bottles for a while and now she does both.

Mariah: Yeah, that’s true. It’s just, she might grow up feeling different, and that’s so hard.

Sharon: It is. But you’re gonna do everything you can to make her feel less different. And you know what I found online?

Tessa: What?

Sharon: Baby dolls with hearing aids.

[ All laughing ]

Tessa: Oh, God. That’s brilliant. Of course.

Mariah: Yeah.

Sharon: See? There are lots of kids and parents in the same situation as you all.

Mariah: Yeah. No. I know. Of course, we know that.

Sharon: Find that community for Aria and for yourself. There are so many, many amazing success stories to be inspired by. You’ll find the encouragement and the support you need there. You can take this journey with others who are in the same situation that you are in. And you know what? You’re gonna do whatever you have to do to make Aria feel more comfortable, whatever the situation.”.

Billy: We’re gonna talk directly, Kyle. Because jack has been playing the go-between for a while now and I don’t think it’s fair.

Kyle: Well, you seem agitated. What exactly are you accusing me of?

Billy: Coming after my job? You made it clear to Jack that you won’t return to jabot unless it’s in the co-CEO position.

Kyle: Yeah, that– that’s right. I have. I’m guessing you don’t think I deserve it.

Billy: Whether you deserve it or not is irrelevant.

Kyle: Why is that?

Billy: Because it’s my job. I am the co-CEO of Jabot. Jack trusts me and I am loyal to him and to the company that my father built. And I’m doing a damn good job and I’m not going anywhere.


Tucker: Yeah, I figured it was the best thing. We were married all of five minutes.

Ashley: True. Boy, did we have some fun in those five minutes? Didn’t we not have fun in those five minutes? Anyway, I know I’ve said it before, but I am sorry for my part in how this all didn’t work out for us and, uh, it just seems like such a waste that we have to act like strangers now, Tucker.

Tucker: Do you want to be friends now?

Ashley: Oh, I don’t know. We, you know– can’t we be two people that have been through a lot of stuff together and then maybe there can be some kind of commonality? I don’t know.

Tucker: I don’t see that happening.

Ashley: Okay. Well, then maybe we can be two people that can be in the same room with each other without causing each other pain. I mean, we do share a grandchild, remember?

Tucker: I don’t trust you anymore. I don’t trust your motives anymore.

Jack: That would be the third time that you’ve moved those.

Diane: This is my first thanksgiving as your wife in your family home.

Jack: In our family home.

Diane: Well, I just want it to be perfect.

Jack: No one is keeping score. It’s thanksgiving day, the one day of the year we set judgments aside, we put battles on hold, and we come together in gratitude and unity. What could be better than that?

Diane: Have you met your sister?

Jack: Oh.

Diane: Last year at this time, she was on a mission to run me out of town.

Jack: But on the day of thanks, when the whole family was here, she showed restraint.

Diane: Well, a little. And only with a lot of arm twisting on your part. I mean, I was scared during the meal that she would stab me with a fork.

Jack: But she didn’t, and that’s the magic of the holiday.

Diane: [Laughs]

Jack: Hey, think about it. Think about how much things have changed between the two of you since twelve months ago.

Ashley: Things have changed for whom? You mean diana and me?

Jack: I was just reflecting on how your relationship has progressed.

Ashley: Yeah, I suppose that’s true. I mean, who would have guessed that I would owe you a debt of gratitude, diane, for saving my life. Although I still think there’s a part of you that would have preferred me to choke to death on a grape.

Diane: [Chuckles]

Ashley: Huh?

Diane: Course not. Of course not. And besides, jack’s right. We’re on the same team now.

Ashley: Another one of those things that nobody would believe, even me.

Jack: We’re all working toward the same goal– protecting jabot from a possible attack from your about-to-be-ex-husband.

Ashley: I know. I know. Two other things I couldn’t possibly imagine happening– that I’d actually marry tucker and then leave him on our honeymoon

Jack: Because of your incredible loyalty to this family that brought on your realization that tucker is the ass we all thought he was.

Ashley: Okay! All right. Thank you so much for that.

Jack: Look, can we just not talk about tucker or what he has planned for one day? Just focus on the things for which we are grateful.

Ashley: Right. Um… I’d actually like to invite tucker for thanksgiving dinner.

Audra: Yeah, I was surprised you reached out. After the way we left things, I wasn’t sure I’d ever hear from you again.

Kyle: Yeah, I think my emotions got the better of me last time we spoke. We both did.

Audra: Yeah, you’re right. I was a little hesitant to meet with you today. I wasn’t sure what I’d be walking into.

Kyle: I think we had too much of a connection to leave things the way we did.

Audra: Huh. So, now is when you tell me, in a less emotional way, why you backed out of a plan you agreed to only a few days ago.

Kyle: No.

Audra: Because I don’t need to be let down gently, kyle. I prefer the direct approach. So tell me– what’s on your mind?

Kyle: I want back in.


Victoria: Mom, hi. I hope you’re having a good visit with aunt casey. Give her my love. Look, I don’t want to interrupt your quality sister time, but would you give me a call when you get a chance? I could really use your advice.

Nikki: Water. Thank god. How much vodka did she pop into me? Haven’t felt like this in a long, long time. I never wanted to ever again. Claire! Why are you doing this to me?

Nikki: No. No, I can’T. Why is she doing this to me? Claire, or whoever she is, she wants me to suffer. She knows my weakness. No, not weakness. Disease. It’s a disease. Okay. You know how to do this. One day at a time. One minute… at a time.

Claire: Oh, mrs. Newman, I’m so sorry.

Victoria: No. That’s okay, claire. I thought you were headed out west with my mother. Something about going to see your aunt?

Claire: I came back to get some work, but, uh…

Victoria: What is it? What’s wrong?

Claire: It’s your mother.

[Knock at door]

Victor: Yes, come in.

Victoria: Something’s happened with mom.

Victor: What do you mean?

Victoria: Clair flew back to grab some work from the office, but then she got a call from her aunt in oregon.

Victor: What is it?

Claire: Nikki had some kind of seizure this morning.

Victor: What?

Claire: I don’t know much, but apparently she collapsed, and jordan called an ambulance. She’s been taken to the hospital.

Victor: Oh, my god. Get the jet ready. We’re taking off very soon, okay? Just get it ready. What is the nearest airport?

Claire: Redmond.

Victor: Redmond, oregon.

Victoria: I’m coming with you. We can grab nick on the way to the airport.

Audra: Kyle, you were adamant about wanting in on the plan, and then in a complete reversal, you were just as adamant about not betraying your family. You’re making me dizzy.

Kyle: I was working through it.

Audra: You accused me of using you.

Kyle: You called me a coward.

Audra: Okay, well, why would you even consider working with me?

Kyle: To get what I want,

Audra: Which is?

Kyle: Jabot. I want to be co-ceo.

Audra: [Scoffs] Help me understand, because you made it very clear you didn’t want it this way.

Kyle: [Sighs] If I told you I was willing to betray my family and stab my father in the back… would you believe it?

Audra: Why should I believe you’re not gonna change your mind again? You know, tucker thinks you can’t commit and follow through.

Kyle: Well, tucker’s wrong, and I have the evidence to prove it.

Tucker: Evidence to prove what?

Tucker: Okay, so what is this evidence to prove you are sincere in wanting to join us?

Ashley [Recorded]: I know that tucker needs and wants devon’s love and approval more than anything. And devon needs and wants a relationship with his father. I don’t see anything wrong with nudging that in the right direction. And just listen. Full disclosure– if all this “kumbaya” means that tucker decides to back off of jabot, wouldn’t that be wonderful? Wouldn’t it? It could actually happen. Because nobody can tap into tucker’s humanity like devon.

Tucker: This isn’t news. I assumed ashley was trying to manipulate me.

Kyle: But you were hoping it wasn’t true.

Tucker: I don’t know how my hopes or desires are relevant here.

Kyle: The point is, ashley is using your hopes and desires to her advantage.

Tucker: No, it sounds to me like she still thinks she can turn me into a better man. But even if you’re right, what does that prove?

Kyle: That I would throw my aunt under the bus to show whose side I’m on.

Audra: It was a dirty move. Sneaky, even. I’m impressed.

Tucker: I see. Dirty and sneaky kyle abbott.

[Chuckles, snorts] I didn’t think you had it in you.

Jack: Inviting tucker to our family thanksgiving dinner.

Diane: You’re not serious.

Ashley: All right, let me rephrase that. Not for dinner. Just here for a drink along with devon.

Jack: So you’re helping him get in touch with his humanity?

Ashley: Yes, exactly.

Jack: He never had any to begin with.

Diane: Yeah, talk about spoiling the mood.

Ashley: I thought you were my ally. What happened to being on board?

Diane: Well, it happens to be thanksgiving. It runs the risk–

Jack: Of destroying the day. Why would he even agree to this?

Ashley: Because of devon. I mean, obviously, tucker’s probably going to be alone on the most family holiday of all the holidays. He’s going to be miserable. Maybe he’ll be more vulnerable.

Jack: Good. Tucker will be sad. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. No, I’m putting my foot down. This is not going to happen. You can get together with tucker and devon and work your magic. Obviously, I can’t talk you out of it, but not here, not today.

Ashley: Jack.

Diane: I have to agree.

Ashley: You mean the two of you can’t put aside your dislike for this person the way I have? Honestly, for a greater good?

Jack: You’re asking us to ruin a family celebration by having that man in this house and pretending to be civil. It’s not going to happen.

Nick: Have you heard anything from mom?

Victor: She’s just not answering my calls.

Claire: I’ve been trying to reach my aunt jordan for an update, but she’s not picking up either.

Victoria: Maybe that means she’s bringing mom back from the hospital.

Victor: Wait a minute.

Nikki: Is that the jet? Is it ready?

Victor: Just a second. What do you mean, not ready yet?

Victoria: What?

Victor: Why in half an hour? Get it ready. We’ve got to get out of here.

Victoria: That’s too long. I feel like we need to be there now. Mom needs us.

Victor: Sweetheart…

Victoria: I can’t stand this.

Victor: It’s gonna be all right, okay? Everything will be all right.

Nikki: What kind of person does this? Get rid of it. Pour it out. You know where this will end if you don’T. Oh.

[Gasps, sniffles]

[Teary] Oh, god…

[Sobs] What have I done?

[Crying] God help me!

[Crying continues]

Victoria: Now claire, your aunt said nikki had a seizure?

Claire: Yes.

Victor: What else did she say?

Claire: Not much. She was focused on getting nikki help.

Victoria: She must have said more or given you some idea of what she’s dealing with. What did she actually see?

Claire: She said nikki started twitching. She got dizzy, and then her arms started jerking like they were out of her control. And then she collapsed.

Victoria: She collapsed? It sounds like it could have been related to the ms, especially if she was tired from the trip.

Victor: Okay, listen, we need to relay that information to the medical team. What’s the name of the hospital?

Claire: I don’t know. There aren’t any near the lake house.

Nikki: Didn’t you say your aunt suffered some kind of fall?

Victor: Where was she treated?

Claire: There’s a retired doctor who lives on the lake. He looks after aunt jordan because she hates hospitals. I should have found out where they were going. I heard “hospital,” and I didn’t get more information. I’m so sorry. I was just so upset that I wasn’t thinking.

Victor: I understand, but it’s imperative that you get ahold of your aunt, okay? We need to tell your aunt about nikki’s medical condition of multiple sclerosis. Do you understand? It could potentially be very, very dangerous. So call her again right now.

Tucker: Well, this was a promising start.

Audra: I’m assuming you’ve given some thought as to how you might help us achieve our goal.

Kyle: I played the role of the prodigal son. Told my father I accepted his position to be coo of jabot.

Tucker: Smart move.

Kyle: I want to show I’m a team player willing to put the family above my own personal ambition.

Audra: You sure he believed it?

Kyle: Oh, I know he did, because he wanted to. It’s a weakness too easily exploited.

Tucker: Is this the student trying to school the master now?

Kyle: Oh, no, this is a partner-to-partner observation.

Tucker: We’re not partners yet.

Audra: All right, well, we all need to be convincing and effective for this to work.

Tucker: I agree. So as coo, you’ll be on the inside of jabot where you can gather information.

Kyle: Exactly what kind of info are you looking for?

Tucker: Anything I can use to damage the company, destroy it from the inside.

Kyle: Is that supposed to be a joke?

Tucker: No, that’s what you’re signing on for.

Kyle: See, I want to run the company. There’s not a lot of incentive for me if there’s no company left to run, tucker.

Audra: I think “destroy” is too strong a word.

Tucker: Sorry. Would “cripple” be better?

Audra: Yeah, better. Look, right now the company is too financially stable. It could weather any kind of storm we could create. You do see that, right?

Kyle: Oh, I see, but I’m not saying I agree with it.

Tucker: Kyle, in order to put you in charge, I need control of the company. To get control of the company, I need leverage. Without some kind of, uh, some kind of damage or crisis at jabot, I don’t have that.

Kyle: Oh, I understand.

Tucker: Is this going to be a problem for you?

Jack: Just one tucker-free day, is that too much to ask?

Ashley: Jack, I think you can survive it for the sake of our family and the family’s company, okay?

Diane: I doubt tucker would even want to come,

Jack: Or devon, for that matter. I’m sure he has plenty of plans for the family he does love.

Ashley: Just one drink. Why are you fighting me on this?

Jack: Because thanksgiving should mean something. Thanksgiving is about family, ashley. I am grateful that you are here. For a time here, it looked like that wasn’t going to happen, things were so bad between us. I would like to be grateful all day that you are here.

Ashley: Okay, okay. But there are some things that are more important, jack, than just sitting together at a table, eating tons of turkey and then wanting to take a nap.

Jack: You’re missing my point. Today is about family. We need to value that. Can’t we just come together, enjoy each other’s company? This is about a family tradition we’re trying to keep going. There are far too few of those.

Ashley: I know. I know. Listen, I’m really grateful to you for always trying to keep these family traditions going. Honestly, thank you.

Jack: What do you think dad would do?

Ashley: I think he’d agree with me. I really do. And if you don’t agree with me to let tucker and devon come here for one quick drink, I’ll go to the club. I’ll meet them there.

Jack: You would really do that?

Ashley: Accept my other option, jack.

Diane: Ashley, ashley, I’d really like to have you here.

Ashley: And I want to be here, and I will be for part of it, I promise. But this is something that I have to do. It just is.

Jack: I’m not going to stand here and argue with you. That’s the last thing I want to do, especially today.

Ashley: Good.

Jack: So you’re gonna go through with this? You’re gonna spend part of thanksgiving with the most despicable man in genoa city.

Ashley: And his son, hopefully.

Jack: Why are you so damn stubborn?

Jack: Why are you such a control freak? It’s for the good of the family.

Jack: I know that. Doesn’t mean I have to like it. I still worry about you.

Ashley: I’ll be fine.

Jack: You will be missed.

Ashley: Just think of the opportunity to talk about me behind my back. That’s the real family tradition.

Jack: Be careful. Look, I got to check on things in the kitchen, okay?

Ashley: Come here. Happy thanksgiving.

Jack: Happy thanksgiving.

[Both sigh]

Ashley: Honestly. Thank you for what you said. That was very sweet.

Diane: Oh, well, I meant it. I wanted this to be our first family thanksgiving together without so much animosity.

[Both chuckle]

Ashley: Right. Yeah. I’ll be back, you know? I’m not gonna be gone that long. You understand why I’m doing this, right? You see the logic?

Diane: Oh, I–I do. It’s just there could be a problem with your plan.

Kyle: That’s a sound strategy if properly executed.

Tucker: And are you willing to be a part of it?

Audra: Dismantling your family’s company?

Kyle: Well, I have to be, in order for it to work.

Tucker: Why is that?

Kyle: You want to weaken the company without destroying it beyond repair. That requires intel only someone from the inside can deliver. Timing is everything.

Audra: Hmm. He makes a good point.

Kyle: And I don’t trust you. Either of you. No offense.

Audra: None taken.

Kyle: Look, you’re hurt. Part of you wants to hurt back. You want to punish ashley and all the people important to her. My family. I can see that.

Tucker: Cool. Did you get that from your freshman psychology class? I know more about you than you think, kyle. I always will. Don’t forget that. So, just so we understand, you are joining us, yes?

Kyle: Well, I’m not gonna let you burn it down out of spite. But I want to run the company, and this is the only way that’s going to happen. So, yes, I am in.

Tucker: Very good. I’m glad you found some clarity.

Kyle: Don’t make the mistake of playing me, and everyone will get what they want. Do we understand each other?

Tucker: I think so. Welcome aboard, again.

Kyle: Well, you don’t have to question my commitment to all this.

Tucker: Mm-hmm. You should run along back to thanksgiving right now. Keep playing the prodigal son, grateful to be back in their good graces and all that.

Kyle: I can handle it.

Tucker: Okay. I’ll be in touch.

Audra: I’ll walk out with you. I’m glad you’re back.

Kyle: Yeah. Tucker must be pleased with your efforts.

Audra: You don’t seem very happy for a man who’s about to get everything he wants.

Kyle: Audra, don’t try to manage me.

Audra: I’m not asking you to trust me, kyle. You know, in fact, I find it rather appealing you don’T. We’re talking about self-interest here. There’s nothing in it for me if tucker burns it down. Like you, I need this to succeed.

Kyle: Hmm, but it’s tucker I’ll be handing the means to cripple the company.

Audra: And when we gain control, we will build it back even better and stronger. This is what tucker does best.

Kyle: Hmm. That’s why I’m putting up with him. Well, with both of you. It’s clear who I’m dealing with.

Jordan: Claire?

Claire: Yes, it’s me, aunt jordan. I’m so glad you picked up.

Jordan: I just got back from the hospital. Understand?

Claire: Yes, I’m here with mr. Newman and two of his children. They’re very worried.

Jordan: As they should be.

Claire: He’s very eager to talk to you.

Victor: Hi, this is victor newman. If you’re on medicare, remember, the annual enrollment period is here. The time to choose your coverage begins october 15th and ends december 7th. So call unitedhealthcare and see how you can get more of what matters, with our broad range of plans including an aarp medicare advantage plan from unitedhealthcare. It can combine your hospital and doctor coverage

Jordan: Mr. Victor newman. I can’t believe it.

Victor: Well, thank you for helping my wife.

Jordan: What was that? Hello? Oh, this cell service is just so awful. Can you hear me?

Victor: I said thank you for helping my wife.

Jordan: That’s not something you need to thank anyone for. But she did give me a scare.

Victor: Please tell me how she is.

Jordan: The doctors are tending to her.

Victor: Ok, listen carefully. You must tell them that my wife has ms, multiple sclerosis. Very important you tell them.

Jordan: [Chuckles] Well, you’ll be happy to know that the doctors were smart enough to figure out that’s what was ailing her, mr. Newman.

Victor: Well, I’m very relieved to hear that.

Jordan: It is a great relief, isn’t it?

Victoria: So the seizure was brought on by the ms.

Victor: So she is responding well to the medication?

Jordan: They gave her some epilepsy medication, and, um, what was the name of it? Oh, I can’t remember. But, um… anyhow, it seems to be working, and she was over the episode rather quickly.

Victor: Well, that’s good news.

Jordan: They’re going to keep her overnight. They want to make sure that there are no chances taken. And since I do live in such a remote area.

Victor: We’ll be leaving here shortly. We are flying into redmond. We should be there in a few hours.

Jordan: Oh, goodness, it is handy having those private jets, isn’t it?

Victor: Now what is the name of the hospital?

Jordan: Hello?

Victor: Hello?

Jordan: Hello? Oh, no, not again.

Victor: Can you give me the name of the hospital?

Jordan: Oh, this service is breaking up again. Mr. Newman? Hello?

Victor: Hello? Are you there?

Victor: [Sighs] The call dropped.

Claire: The service can be terrible out there.

Nick: Well, mom’s okay, that’s the only thing that matters.

Victoria: What else did she say?

Victor: Well, they gave her some epilepsy medication, and apparently the seizure stopped.

Victoria: [Sighs] Thank god.

Nikki: Thanks to your aunt.

Victor: We owe her a tremendous debt of gratitude.

Claire: I’m sure she doesn’t see it that way.

Victor: Well, I’m looking forward to thanking her in person, okay?

Diane: Ashley, I–I do, I understand the logic of what you want to do, how it makes sense to take advantage of the emotions that the holiday brings up.

Ashley: Right, right, because tucker talks a good game, but he– well, like I told you, he wants devon’s love and approval.

Diane: Family connection.

Ashley: Yeah, and that’s why I thought today was a good day to try to get the whole process started, of getting, you know, tucker and devon back on track.

Diane: Well, I–I get that. I’m just asking that you don’t sacrifice the whole day for tucker. Look, it means a lot to jack to have you here for thanksgiving dinner. And believe it or not, it means a lot to me, too. Look, there’s no angle, no secret agenda, I just… I just love your brother. I love his devotion to family, and… I love that harrison is growing up, you know, feeling a part of it and having these traditions.

[Sighs] I mean, last year at this time, jack had recently learned that he had another grandchild.

Ashley: Yeah. Yeah, it’s a shame allie can’t be here. She’s off in paris pursuing her dreams.

Diane: Well, life does that. It pulls us in different directions, and I think that’s why this holiday is just so important.

Ashley: Seems like you really mean what you’re saying.

Diane: I do mean what I’m saying. And that’s why I hope you’ll be back in time for dinner, because… I just think the table would feel a little empty without you.

[Door opens, closes]

Ashley: Thank you.

Kyle: Wow. Smells delicious in here. How are the preparations coming?

Ashley: Your mother has, um, decorated the room in such a way that martha stewart would be jealous. Anyway, um, I gotta get ready.

Kyle: Okay. See you later. Wow, mom.

Diane: Yeah.

Kyle: [Chuckles] Uh… where’s dad?

Diane: He’s in the kitchen checking on things, but don’t worry. I’m sure mrs. Martinez is about to kick him out.

Kyle:, Oh, well, I met with audra.

Diane: Yeah?

Kyle: Yeah. Tucker showed up. Couldn’t have worked out better.

Diane: Really? What happened?

Kyle: I told them I reconsidered their plan to take over jabot.

Diane: Do you think tucker believed you?

Kyle: Oh, I’m in. I think you’re right about how I have to handle this.

Tucker: Hey, devon, period. Can we fix this, question mark. Can we try, question mark. I would love to spend thanksgiving with you, period.

[Door thuds, footsteps approach]

Audra: [Sighs] Well, looks like it’s just you and me.

Tucker: Hmm. Just the way I like it. I must say, I never understood the appeal of thanksgiving. Turkey sucks. It’s always dry. And nobody does the mashed potatoes right. They’re dry, too. It’s like hospital food, right? You want to go upstairs?

Audra: Tucker, no.

Tucker: Not that. Up to the dining room. Buy you a burger and a bourbon.

Audra: Oh. Yeah, sure.

Tucker: Geez. Your mind’s in the gutter these days.

Audra: Yeah, well, I’ve been spending way too much time with you.

Tucker: Mm-hmm. Hey, wait a second.

Kyle: I’m going to do this on my own. I can handle it. I’m going to undercut tucker, eliminate the threat, and then I’m going to make this my gift to dad.

Diane: Good for you.

Jack: Mother and son, a welcome sight on this family holiday. Ashley leave?

Diane: No, she went upstairs. I did my best to try to convince her to make it back for dinner, but I don’t know. Who knows?

Jack: Well, I appreciate the effort. I really do believe in the tradition of thanksgiving.

Kyle: You don’t have to convince us. We know how important this day is to you. And I love how harrison knows this is your favorite holiday.

Jack: I just wanted us all to be together. I cannot believe tucker is still invading our lives.

Kyle: Yeah, let’s forget all about tucker mccall. He has nothing to do with this family. Today should be about us, the abbotts.

Claire: Still no service.

Victoria: Oh, my god. Is it always like this?

Claire: It’s worse this time of year when the weather’s bad.

Victoria: I didn’t know that mom was gonna be in such a remote location.

Claire: Most people move to this part of the state because they want to be off the grid.

Nikki: You must worry about your aunt living out there all alone.

Claire: She’s one of the most capable people I know. But sometimes, yes, I do.

Victor: Hello? Hello? Let’s go.

[Sharp pop]

Nikki: Who’s there? Claire? Who’s there?

[Knock on door]

Man: Hello? Nikki? Victoria?

[Insistent knocking]

Cole: Nikki? It’s cole. I got your text about victoria. Is she all right?

Recap written by Eva

The Abbott’s celebrate Thanksgiving, since Jack doesn’t want to invite Devon and Tucker to the house for a drink, Ashley decides she will meet Devon and Tucker for a drink at the Athletic club.

Kyle tells Audra and Tucker that he has changed his mind again and wants to help them take over Jabot. Kyle plays Tucker a recording of Ashley telling him and Diane that she wants to fix his relationship with Devon so that Devon can persuade him not to take over Jabot.

[ Jill chuckling ]

Chance: Hey.

Jill: Oh. Oh… let me look at you. You are infuriating. Do you know that? You really are. Are you sure it’s okay?

Chance: Yeah. Yeah, I’m fine. I promise you, for the fifth time. I’m fine. I’m recovering but I’m being a textbook patient too. Don’t worry.

Jill: Do you know how irritating it is to come into town and find out that your grandson has been in the hospital?

Chance: Well, I took that bullet just to annoy you. You know that, right?

Jill: Hey, hey, hey, don’t joke about nearly dying.

Chance: Come on, I didn’t almost die.

Jill: Stop arguing.

Chance: Okay. All right. Sorry. I promise you, I thought being chief would get me out of the line of fire more often, but clearly, I was wrong.

Jill: Oh, I’m just so happy that your injury wasn’t worse and that that bastard’s been caught.

Chance: Well, justice will be served.

Nina: Thank goodness for that. And it seems to have been maybe a much-needed wake-up call.

Jill: What does that mean?

Chance: Mom, mom, please. Not– not anymore. Come on.

Nina: Chance may change course and quit law enforcement.

Jill: Is this true?

Chance: Okay. Why don’t we all sit down, let’s take a breath. Sit down, sit. I’ve not made any kind of decisions yet. At all. I’m just simply… considering the possibility.

Jill: Wow. That would be a huge shift for you.

Nina: Yes. But then jill and I would never have to fear again getting one of those telephone calls saying that something’s happened to you.

Jill: Listen, if you do decide to quit the G.C.P.D, I have an idea.

Chance: All right. Let’s– let’s hear it.

Jill: Well, in my opinion, it is high time that you followed in the footsteps of your grandfather and catherine.

Chance: Meaning what?

Jill: Meaning come to work with me at chancellor-winters. Honey, I will teach you the ropes of the business world.

Nina: Jill, that’s a brilliant idea and a great opportunity.

Chance: That is a very generous offer. Thank you. But that is a big step and I have no experience, so.

Jill: Well, you don’t need experience. You have exposure. You have lived your whole life hearing about the business. And you’re smart and you’re dedicated.

Nina: You’re hard-working. You’re great with people. You have excellent instincts.

Jill: And I can always use allies within the company. Honey, I know talent when I see it. I think you’d be really good at this.

[ Chance sighing ]

[ Kyle sighing ]

Diane: Morning.

Kyle: Morning, mom.

[ Kyle sighing ]

Diane: Morning.

Kyle: Morning, mom. Where’s dad?

Diane: Uh, he’s still upstairs. I wanted to talk to you before he came down.

Kyle: What did you want to discuss?

Diane: Uh, have you given any more thought to what we talked about last night?

Kyle: Audra and I didn’t exactly end on good terms. Okay? And it would be a tough sell to convince her that I want back in on tucker’s plan to take over jabot.

Diane: Well, don’t you think it’s worth a try?

Kyle: I don’t know if she would believe me. And tucker was already pretty suspicious about my intentions in the first place.

Diane: All right. Are you honestly worried about that or is there something more going on?

Kyle: Mom, I’m torn. Keeping this from dad feels wrong. I almost betrayed him and the company. Doesn’t he have a right to know?

Diane: Would you please stop beating yourself up?

Kyle: How can I? I mean, I almost sold him out to tucker for my benefit. If I don’t come clean, what does that say about me?

Diane: It says nothing. You reversed course. Thoughts are not actions. If they were, we’d all be in trouble. Kyle, listen to me. You should tell your father when it’s the right time for you.

Jack: Tell me what?

Kyle: Uh, dad, I um, I’ve just been, you know, wrestling with how to tell you something.

Jack: You can tell me anything. You know that.

Kyle: Yeah. I just want you to know how sorry I am that I’ve been a jerk about your offer to come back to jabot.

Jack: No apology necessary. It’s water under the bridge.

Kyle: Dad, don’t cut me so much slack.

Jack: No. You’ve already taken steps to straighten things out with billy, with me.

Kyle: It’s not enough. I– I want you to know that I am now considering your offer to be C.O.O. Of jabot.

Tucker: Hey.

Devon: Hey.

Tucker: How are you?

Devon: Not great.

Tucker: What’s going on?

Devon: Well… I learned something new about you this morning and it’s just like you can’t help yourself, huh?

Tucker: I don’t know what you mean.

Devon: I’m talking about your latest lie. And I’m sure it’s tough to keep up with all of them. But this is one too many and I have had enough.

Devon: So my only question to you is, are you that arrogant to think that you were gonna get away with everything?

Tucker: What have you been told now? What is it you think you know?

Devon: It’s not what I think I know. It’s what’s been confirmed. We’re talking about your collusion with aunt mamie.

Tucker: Oh, devon. We’ve discussed this, haven’t we? I told you there’s no truth to any of those allegations.

Devon: I know what you said, I was there. And it was a lie. And you told it to me over and over again. It started with you saying that you had no connection to mamie whatsoever. And then after I pressured you, you admitted that you had been in communication with her. But it was to try and make things better with me.

Tucker: It was.

Devon: It wasn’t at all because you’re also using her firm to make investments into chancellor-winters behind my back. Right?

Tucker: Listen, I have no say in how mamie johnson chooses to spend her company’s money.

Devon: Okay. But you did conveniently choose not to mention that she’s using your money.

Tucker: Not all of it. Most of it’s mamie’S.

Devon: It doesn’t matter though. You understand that, right? Because you told me one thing and then I find out the complete opposite. So, what are you after?

Tucker: Nothing.

Devon: If it’s nothing, then why all the deception?

Tucker: The only thing I’ve ever wanted was just to be closer to you.

Devon: You gonna stick with that? Okay. Well, I mean, that’s pretty much out the window because I don’t believe a word that comes out of your mouth.

Tucker: Okay. Hold… first of all, where did you get this information? Was it phyllis? Because you know she hates me and she’s not above spreading lies to try to ruin me.

Devon: Tucker, the only lies are coming out of your mouth. They’re not coming from phyllis or anybody else.

Tucker: I have tried my best to be honest with you.

Devon: That’s your best? ‘Cause I would sure hate to see your worst. And I’m gonna make something really clear to you right now. Keep your hands off of chancellor-winters because that’s neil’s legacy and it’s your mother’s legacy. You’re not any part of it. And I’m gonna make sure it stays that way.

Tucker: Yeah. I– I think you’re blowing this a little out of proportion.

Devon: No, I think I’m being actually really nice about this. So please keep your distance from me and my family. I’m done with you.

Ashley hey, are you okay?

Devon: Yeah, good to see you.

Ashley: What the hell have you done now?

Jack: Wait, you’re serious? You’re considering the C.O.O. Role?

Kyle: It, uh, it took me an embarrassing amount of time to come to my senses. But, um…

Ashley: What the hell have you done now?

Jack: Wait, you’re serious? You’re considering the C.O.O. Role?

Kyle: It, uh, it took me an embarrassing amount of time to come to my senses. But, um… yeah, yeah. Yeah, I am.

Diane: I can’t tell you how happy I am to hear that.

Jack: That is fantastic news.

Kyle: It feels good for me too.

Jack: Well, as thrilled as I am, I gotta say it comes out of the blue. Um, was there any one thing that prompted this change of course?

Kyle: I know I had numerous reasons of why I wasn’t interested before.

>Jack: Oh, you definitely were not interested. You thought I was giving you a token role.

Kyle: I guess I just needed some time to self-reflect. Starting after my confrontation with billy where he accused me of being a spoiled brat and trying to take his job.

Diane: I didn’t realize he said that to you.

Kyle: No, it was harsh, mom, but he was right. I needed him to call me out. It made me realize I need to back off and it set me on an entirely different path altogether.

Jack: Yeah, you implied you had something in the works.

Kyle: I did and– and then it didn’t work out.

Jack: And that’s when you realized you were interested in the C.O.O. Role?

Kyle: It gave me pause. But the final turning point was mom. She gave me some good advice on how to move forward.

Jack: Well, I am not surprised. She is a wise woman. What did she tell you?

Kyle: That I haven’t been putting us on the same level. I’ve been making demands and exerting pressure on you. And she made me realize that I need to prove myself to you as much as you need to prove your faith in me.

Jack: Seems like pretty sound advice.

Kyle: You know, getting what you want. It– it comes in stages, it can’t be rushed. So I have to be patient.

Abby: Hey.

Devon: Hey. Thank you for taking some time away from work.

Abby: Of course, you sounded riled up. What’s going on?

[ Devon sighs ]

Devon: It’s tucker.

Abby: Oh. What now?

Devon: So lily told me this morning that she and jill found proof that he is directly involved in mamie’s investment in chancellor-winters.

Abby: That bastard. So you have solid proof?

Devon: Seems that way. Yeah. Proving what we already suspected.

Abby: What’s he doing?

Devon: He’s using her financial firm to make investments. And one of which was to chancellor-winters. Which means he just flat-out lied to me about any collusion with mamie.

Abby: I am so sorry. I know that we suspected that there was something going on, but to know for sure? I mean, that’s horrible.

Devon: Yeah. And then when I went to confront him about it, he just doubled down and kept lying to me. So he’s done. I’m cutting him off.

Abby: I’m sorry, I hate that for you. You know what? Actually, I don’T.Beuse you de and tucker is just never gonna be that for you.

Devon: Yeah, I know. I’ve given him too many chances and he’s let me down every single time.

Abby: But if it makes you feel any better. I think he wants to be that for you. He’s just not capable of it.

Devon: Well, it doesn’T.

Abby: So, is tucker gonna back down now?

Devon: I don’t think he will. At all. I told him to keep his hands off of chancellor-winters. But I think he’s gonna do whatever he wants to do because he didn’t care about the fallout.

Abby: Even if the fallout is his relationship with his son.

Devon: Right. So, the only thing I can do is figure out how to protect my family and my company from whatever he has planned.

Abby: You know what? Let me talk to my mom. Maybe she knows something. There’s gotta be a way for us to find out what’s going on.

Devon: Yeah.

Devon: I think you just gave me an idea. I need to get a hold of the family because tucker does need to be stopped. And I think I know how to accomplish that.

Chance: So, the corporate world, huh?

Jill: Oh, my god. It’s your family legacy.

Chance: Mhm-hm. Did you two talk about this?

In unison: What?

Chance: Try to mix something up together again?

Jill: Absolutely not.

[ Text alert ] Ah, it’s devon. He wants to meet with– with me and lily. I really better get going. Please, please take seriously my suggestion.

Chance: I will, I promise.

Jill: Okay. All right, darling. I love you.

Chance: I love you more.

Jill: Both of you take care.

Nina: Bye.

Chance: Okay. I know you want to say something. So, go ahead.

Nina: Well, you know, jill and I never see eye to eye on anything. We don’t have the closest relationship–

Chance: And yet you’re already, like, wow, what a brilliant idea.

Nina: Well, it is. I was the first one to suggest it to you.

Chance: Yeah, I know. What a coincidence.

Nina: No, jill and i did not collude on this. I promise you. We’re both telling you the truth. It’s just, uh, synchronicity in the universe. Maybe it’s meant to be.

Chance: Sure.

Nina: Look, jill’s right. I mean, you’ve been around business all your life. It’s in your dna. I have no doubt that this would come totally naturally to you.

Chance: Even though I have zero interest in sitting behind a desk and crunching the numbers.

Nina: Yes, please. A nice, safe desk job. Something to help your mother sleep at night. What a novel concept. And you know, it wouldn’t just be crunching numbers. You gotta read people and set priorities. And see five steps ahead and weigh the pros and cons. It’s nothing you’re not doing anyway. Come on, this could be really great for you. Will you just think about it, please? For me?

Chance: Okay. I will, I promise.

Tucker: I’m really not in the mood.

Ashley: Clearly. I can see that. What’s got devon so upset?

Tucker: It’s a personal and private family matter. So it really has nothing to do with you.

Ashley: Unfortunately, whether or not we’re married, we share a grandson. Looks like you need somebody to talk to.

Tucker: Someone maybe, but not you.

[ Ashley sighs ]

Ashley: Can you afford to be so picky? Look at your life. I mean, it’s imploding. Our marriage is done. Your business is done. Looks like your relationship with your child is done. Well, it’s the truth and you do realize that whatever affects devon affects my daughter and our grandson. So, I mean… I’m willing to listen.

Tucker: Which accomplishes what, exactly?

Ashley: That’s a good question. Do you want to fix things? Because if you stop being such an ass, I might be willing to help.

Tucker: You’re right, devon is upset.

Ashley: Yeah. Why?

Tucker: Phyllis, I assume, uh… spreading lies and exaggerations about me. And apparently one of them got back to devon and it was the final straw for him and he has… cut me out of his life.

Ashley: So, what was this faux lie that destroyed your relationship?

Tucker: I made an investment in mamie johnson’s company and I didn’t tell devon about it.

Ashley: Interesting. So, she did get involved with you. Okay. So you had a business relationship with devon’s aunt that you didn’t reveal. Something else?

Tucker: Well, now mamie has invested in chancellor-winters. So devon suspects that she and I are colluding. And that my intention is to buy a stake in the company.

Ashley: Mhm. And I’m assuming he’s right?

Tucker: No.

Ashley: No?

Tucker: No.

Ashley: Well, that’s the only thing that makes sense. I mean, clearly, that’s one of the reasons you came back to genoa city, right? Is to get your hands on chancellor and jabot.

Tucker: Ashley, even if that were true. Why would i acknowledge it to you?

[ Ashley laughs ]

Ashley: Well, then don’T. You know, I don’t really care.

Tucker: Oh.

Ashley: Well, honestly, tucker, all this game-playing and lying. It’s exhausting even hearing about it. How do you do it?

Tucker: Wow. Your assessment of me is lovely as ever.

Ashley: It is what it is.

Tucker: We really have no common ground between us, do we?

Ashley: Actually, as I said, we share a grandson. There’s no greater common ground than that.

Tucker: So what?

Ashley: So… you’re a crappy romantic partner, right? You’re a barely decent father. But you do happen to be an excellent grandfather. I’ll give you that. So in the spirit of family peace, I’m willing to help you mend things with your son.

Tucker: Why would you do that?

Ashley: Well, definitely not for you. But I’m doing it for him and for my daughter and for that beautiful little boy.

Jack: You always have a way of saying the right thing. I am eternally grateful.

Diane: Well, I’m just relieved that I finally got through to our son.

Jack: And look, I’m grateful to you as well, for having the wisdom to change your position.

Kyle: Well, you and me both.

Jack: Listen, at the risk of pushing. I know it’s taken a while to get here. But is there anything I can say or do to lure you over the finish line?

Diane: I second that. What will it take?

Kyle: There’s nothing else you can say, either of you.

Diane: You know how much we want you back where you belong. With your family at jabot.

Kyle: I know, but… just talking it out with you has helped. Knowing the fact that you didn’t say it was too late and take the offer off the table. No, I– I don’t think I need any more time.

Jack: Wait. Does– does that mean?

Kyle: Yeah, I’m– I’m in. I’ll take the job. Back where I belong.

[ Jack grunting ]

Devon: So I wanted to update both of you as soon as possible.

Jill: What’s the latest?

Devon: I went to confront tucker about what you told me regarding his involvement in mamie’s investment.

Jill: And what did he have to say for himself?

Devon: What do you think he had to say? He denied it.

Jill: Oh, of course, he did. He wouldn’t reveal any of his cards to me either when I spoke to him. But I had this teeny little hope that he would be honest with his son.

Devon: Oh, no, he– he doesn’t care at all about that.

Lily: So he didn’t admit to anything?

Devon: Nothing about the collusion. But I believe he does have some kind of plan in the works. And we need to be ready for it.

Jill: Oh, we will be.

Lily: Yeah. I mean, now that we know he poses a threat, we’ll definitely take precautions.

Devon: Yeah.

Lily: But I’m really sorry that he let you down again. I really do believe you deserve better.

Devon: Thank you. I appreciate you saying that. I’m just glad that I know what I’m dealing with and how to move forward with him. ‘Cause he cannot be trusted. And he’s not worth any more of my time.

Lily: Well, look, I don’t want to make light of what you’re going through. But I’m really happy that you’re finally seeing who he really is.

Devon: I’m a little disappointed, more for dominic than anyone else in all this. But I don’t have a choice but to cut him off.

Lily: Well, maybe it’ll be a wake-up call for him.

Jill: No, I appreciate your optimism but I don’t think it’s gonna do him any good to have false hope. Tucker is tucker.

Devon: Very true. And in the meantime, we all need to pull together to figure out how to protect the company from whatever attack is coming.

Jill: Agreed.

Devon: In order to do that though, we need to know what tucker is up to.

Lily: Well, which is hard because he’s not honest about anything.

Devon: Exactly. But I have an idea of how to figure out what tucker’s plans are. That I’m hoping both of you will be on board with. You know that feeling of having to rewash dishesthat didn’t get clean? I don’T.

Tucker: You’re serious? You would actually help me with devon?

Ashley: I think that devon wants and genuinely needs to have a relationship with you. And this hits me where I live, tucker. I know what it’s like to cut off a parent and live with so many regrets about the lost time.

Tucker: If you could actually do what you’re proposing, obviously, that would be great. But…

Ashley: But what? This isn’t a negotiation. It’s a yes or no thing.

Tucker: How much pull do you have with devon?

>>Ashley: Well, I have a lot of pull with my daughter and you know how much he loves her. I think it’s worth a shot. You either do or you don’t, so…

Tucker: And what is it you want in return?

Ashley: I– I just can’t do this.

Tucker: All right. There she goes, running away.

Ashley: You know what? Don’t you even start with me. You want to go there?

Tucker: If I accept this offer that doesn’t make us friends.

Ashley: I don’t want to be your friend. I see there’s no possibility in that.

Tucker: Have you ever seen otherwise? Why don’t you just tell me this whole thing has been a ruse since we got back from paris. I’ll respect you a little more.

Ashley: I don’t need and want your respect.

Tucker: Oh, gee. I thought you said we could be civil towards one another.

Ashley: Yeah, I did because I thought it would be nice to gush over our gorgeous grandson’s photos someday or maybe sit in a family dinner without causing a scene. Other than that, I want nothing from you.

Tucker: Okay. Fine. I accept your offer. Thank you very much.

Ashley: You’re welcome. Fantastic. Have a great day.

Tucker: You too.

Ashley: You too.

Nina: You’re placating your mother, aren’t you? You’re humoring her so she’ll stop pushing.

Chase: Yeah, maybe just a little bit. Because I’m not ready to upend my whole career a week after getting shot. I mean, does that make any sense?

Nina: No. Not at all. But okay. I’ll support you in whatever you decide. Whether it’s chancellor-winters or some other direction.

Chance: Well, thank you. It’s just– it’s a big change, mom. It’s like stepping off a cliff. I don’t even know if I’m gonna be good at it.

Nina: I know. We’ve had this discussion before about you changing direction. I’m well aware of how difficult it would be for you to change course like this.

Chance: Yeah. I committed myself to a life of service. To serve and protect. It’s a mindset.

Nina: A mission.

Chase: Exactly. In everything I’ve done, that has been the core.

Nina: But it’s not the first time you’ve ended up hurt. And in the hospital. Just fighting for your life. I mean, how many more times, chance? Haven’t you given enough?

Chance: I– I– I’m sorry. I know I– I know I scared you.

Nina: Surviving this last bullet should be a reminder of how lucky you are to be alive, sitting here and talking to me. I mean, I’m fun to talk to, right?

[ Nina sniffling ]

Chance: Yes. Yes, you are fun to talk to. I’m never not gonna be grateful for that.

Nina: You gotta stick around, chance, okay? For my sake. For everyone else that loves you.

Chance: Trust me, you’re stuck with me.

Nina: Good.

Chance: I’ll be honest with you. There’s just– there’s one thing that’s been… just eating at me about all this.

Nina: What? Tell me.

Chance: You know, my whole life, I just ran away from the chancellor legacy. I didn’t want anything to do with it. And I, uh– I wonder if it’s because i thought I wasn’t worthy enough. You know, I wouldn’t measure up.

[ Nina scoffs ]

Nina: Well, you know what I’m going to say about that. And I think jill would agree with me. In fact, she’d probably smack you upside the head just for thinking that way.

Chase: An injured man? She would never. You know, maybe it’s time for me to rethink my place as a chancellor, and… in the family business.

Nina: That would be my dearest wish come true.

Ashley: Well, what’s going on here?

Jack: Perfect timing, ashley. Please join me in welcoming kyle back to jabot as our new chief operating officer.

Ashley: Congratulations. So you’re not gunning after billy’s job anymore?

Kyle: So you heard about that?

Ashley: I did. Not your smartest move.

Jack: Ashley…

Kyle: No, no, no, she’s right. It uh, took a few smackdowns, but I finally got set straight.

Ashley: I hope so.

Kyle: Family is a priority and I’m determined to be a team player. Especially after whatever tucker’s next move is.

Ashley: Guess what? I just spoke with tucker at the club.

Diane: You mean an actual conversation with him?

Ashley: Yeah. A conversation. I walked in on a confrontation between him and devon.

Jack: What was devon confronting him about?

Ashley: Yeah. Apparently, devon found out that tucker invested in mamie’s company. And he’s convinced that tucker and mamie are going after chancellor now.

Jack: That man will do anything. And what– what is mamie doing being involved with a man like that? That’s not like her.

Ashley: Uh, think about it a second. You know how much mamie hates jill. So maybe she thinks it’s worth it to work with tucker, so he goes after jill. I don’t know.

Jack: Yeah. I suppose.

Ashley: Yeah. Well, anyway, tucker was really hurting after the fight. Of course, he takes no responsibility for anything, as usual. But I offered to help, I don’t know, mend things between him and his son.

Jack: He’s already made it very clear to you. He is not gonna fall for any effort to get closer to him.

Ashley: Yeah. It’s not about that, jack. Okay? This is about helping the man that my daughter is in love with.

Jack: You shouldn’t get involved. If all of that is true, devon needs to separate himself from his father.

Ashley: Jackie, come on. Stop, please. How is that your call?

Jack: It’s not my call. It’s not yours either. Look, I had this argument with billy. I– I was against it then. I’m against it now.

Ashley: Duly noted. Tucker is not my favorite person right now. Okay? But I do think that devon deserves to have a relationship with his father and I’ll do what I need to do to make that happen. That’s all.

Jack: No, you’re not helping. You’re just taking advantage.

Ashley: That’s your opinion. What do you need to hear from me? I promise you. I– I don’t have any intentions of reconnecting with tucker on any level. This is about a father and son.

Jack: Exploiting a parent-child relationship is wrong and you know that.

Ashley: I’m not exploiting anybody. I’m not forcing anyone to do anything. This should make sense to you because even though we hated what dina did to us and to our father. We all wish we had more time with her. Right?

Jack: Tucker is not dina. You are meddling and you should be walking away.

Ashley: Okay. Just hear me out. I know that tucker needs and wants devon’s love and approval more than anything. And devon needs and wants a relationship with his father. I don’t see anything wrong with nudging that in the right direction. And just listen. Full disclosure, if all this kumbaya means that tucker decides to back off of jabot. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? Wouldn’t it? It could actually happen because nobody can tap into tucker’s humanity like devon.

Jack: I still think we should go with my plan. Release the dirt we have on him and let it destroy the man.

Ashley: The stakes aren’t high enough with your plan. So if– if you publish that article and it doesn’t stop tucker, we’ve got nothing left, jack.

Diane: Jack, I’m sorry but I– I have to agree with ashley. I mean, right now it could just inflame tucker.

Kyle: Yeah. I think we should go with ashley’s plan. See if reconnecting with his son changes tucker’s course.

Jack: Well, it appears I’m outnumbered.

Ashley: Oh. So? Does that mean you’re gonna back off of releasing that article?

Jack: Yeah, we can sit on it a bit longer. At least we know we have it if we need it.

[ Phone ringing] Sorry, I have to take this. Excuse me.

[ Ashley sighs ] Hello?

Ashley: Okay. Well, I need to go too. Thanks. I’ll see you both later.

[ Door shuts ]

Chance: Voicemail. Hey, grandma, it’s chance. Uh, when you get a minute, I’d love to meet up with you and talk. Call me back.

Nina: Thank you. For taking the first step.

Chance: Yeah. Well, we’ll see what happens. Okay?

Nina: Oh, my goodness. A suit and tie? That’d be so cute. I can’t wait to see that every day.

Chance: No, no, no. Don’t get ahead of yourself. I’m gonna meet with her. I’m gonna get some information and try to understand what this means. Okay?

Nina: Look, you’re not gonna talk me out of being happy about this. Okay?

Chance: Wait, wait. What was that? You said every day?

Nina: Yeah, it’d be terrible for you, wouldn’t it?

Chance: Well, no, I think it’d be– it’d be kind of nice to have you around.

Nina: Well, I don’t know all my plans at the moment. But you’re not getting rid of me just yet.

Chance: Okay. I’ll take it.

Nina: Yeah. You talk a good game. But if I was around all the time, you’d get sick of me nagging.

Chance: Ah, yes. I definitely would. It doesn’t mean I don’t want you around here, though.

Nina: Oh, I love you so much, my son.

Chance: I love you.

Jill: I’m not sure about this. This is risky.

Devon: But you do think it could work though, right?

Jill: Well, there’s no guarantee and I can tell you it requires a level of trust that I’m not feeling right now.

Devon: No. I– I understand that and I know we would be putting ourselves on the line. But I really do think that this plan is the best way to get the information that we need.

Jill: So, what do you think, lily?

Lily: I mean, I agree with the risk factor…

Jill: But is it worth it?

Lily: Well, I mean, it might be the only chance we have to figure out what tucker is really up to.

Devon: Yeah. And the first step is to uncover the threat.

Lily: And then once we know that then we can stop him in his tracks.

Devon: Right.

Jill: Boy, would that be a relief.

Devon: And I don’t know about both of you, but I sure would love to be able to throw tucker’s lies back into his face.

Jill: Oh, are you kidding? I would enjoy every second of it.

Devon: Yeah. And let him know that our company is not a toy to be played with.

Jill: Yep.

[ Knock on door ]

Devon: Are we all in agreement?

Lily: Yeah. Yes.

Devon: Yeah?

Jill: Let’s do this.

Devon: Okay, let’s do it. Hi. Come in you, two.

Nate: I was surprised to get the invitation.

Mamie: Pleasantly surprised.

Devon: Well, we all have something very important to discuss with you.

Diane: How do you feel?

Kyle: It feels good. I think I made the right decision.

Diane: I’m glad you took my advice to come back to jabot. It’s a good strategy and it will be wonderful to have you there.

Kyle: Taking the C.O.O. Position is one thing. The next, may not be as easy. I’m worried I’m out of my league.

Diane: Well, don’t second guess yourself. I have complete faith in you.

Kyle: I know what I need to do now.

Diane: Yeah. You are going to be the one to save jabot from tucker. Not ashley, not billy, but you. And once you do, you will forever have hero status and everything that comes with it.

Kyle: Mhm. Dad’s done so much for me. More than I deserve. I can’t let him down.

Diane: Yeah. And when your father finds out what you did for this family, he will be so proud of you. I already am.

Kyle: I need to talk to you.

Ashley: Have you spoken with devon?

Abby: I have, yes. He was just here. Why?

Ashley: I walked in on what looked like a very intense confrontation between him and tucker.

Abby: Yeah, he came here afterwards. It’s bad, mom. Devon is very upset.

Ashley: Mhm. Do you know what the fight was about?

Abby: Oh, you know, the usual. Tucker only caring about himself.

Ashley: Well, I know for a fact that tucker cares very deeply for his son.

Abby: Oh, really? Well, not enough to not lie to his son and secretly try to go after his company.

Ashley: Does he have proof of that?

Abby: Yes, he does, mom. I’m not sure what it is, but he has proof.

Ashley: Do you think there’s any chance of them recovering from this?

Abby: Devon says he’s done. And honestly, after this latest revelation, I think their relationship might be severed forever.

Ashley: Okay. Uh, yeah, I know that you’ve worked really hard at including tucker when it comes to dominic. And, uh, you did that when you didn’t want to. So how do you feel about this situation?

>>Abby: I mean, it doesn’t really matter how I feel about it. It’s devon and I see that he’s hurting. I mean, every time he trusts his dad he lets him down.

Ashley: So, how do you feel about maybe trying to mend things for the two of them?

Abby: How?

Ashley: I don’t know. Well, you could start by talking to devon. Just say exactly what you said to me and I’ll try to support you in any way I can.

Abby: Mom, devon is a big boy. I cannot make these decisions for him. And god forbid, I push him into a relationship with his father and he gets hurt again. I would never be able to forgive myself.

Ashley: Okay, well, isn’t he hurting already? Maybe there’s something we can do to ease the pain.

Mamie: So what are we doing here? Can I presume that we are ready to finalize nate’s return to chancellor-winters?

Devon: No. Not quite. We first need you to be honest with us.

Mamie: Okay, about what?

Devon: About your real intentions. Because we all know that you and tucker have some sort of plan in the works.

Jill: A plan that involves ousting me.

Lily: And there’s no point in denying it. We know the truth.

Mamie: Tucker has made some investments in my company.

Jill: Oh, please. This is not just about funds. You and tucker are colluding to exercise your mutual goals.

Nate: Wait. So then have you just been using me? As some part of your overall plan?

Mamie: Not at all, baby. I’ve been telling you the truth. I’m just trying to get you back into the family.

Devon: Yeah. But you were willing to lie to all of us to make that happen.

Mamie: I no longer have any affiliation with your father. And I told him that to his face when I became aware of some of his many transgressions.

Jill: Why should we believe anything you say?

Mamie: You can trust me. My ultimate goal has always been to unite our family under one corporate umbrella. That has never changed.

Devon: Well, mamie, if that is the truth, then we’re gonna give you an opportunity to prove it.

Mamie: Okay. Then just tell me how.

Devon: You need to tell us what tucker’s real agenda is. ‘Cause I imagine you have an idea. And if you can do that, we can start to consider bringing nate back to chancellor-winters. But only if you are honest with us.

Audra: Kyle is reaching out. You were right.

Tucker: Reel him back in.

Ashley: Mm. I have so much respect for you. You’re so good at that. You’re so good at balancing your work life and your home life. I mean, I’m just not good at it, Mamie.

Mamie: You know, I didn’t know that much about tucker McCall, other than that he was Katherine chancellor’s son. I know that jack didn’t like him very much. I just never understood why.

Ashley: Well, Jack’s just being Jack and protective of me and Jabot, and I’m not sure in what order.

Mamie: Oh, now, now. Jack adores you.

Ashley: Oh, I know. I like him, too, most of the time.


Kyle: Tucker. Tucker. Tucker. You’re making a big mistake.

Tucker: It’s not a mistake, son. It’s self-preservation, pure and simple.

Kyle: First of all, I’m not your son. And second, if you believe I have any professional allegiance to my father, then you haven’t been listening. He hasn’t shown me any, so why would I be loyal to him?

Tucker: Because he’s your father, and he’s given you everything you have, and I’m not sure I believe that you’d be willing to just blow that up when the time comes.

Kyle: Watch me light a match

Ashley: Please don’t. I can’t take the small talk.

Tucker: Okay. Well, you have rejected every effort I’ve made to reconnect and talk things out so far, so I assume you must have something very pertinent and, uh, important on your mind.

Ashley: I think it’s important, yeah.

Tucker: Well, don’t tell me, let me guess. You’d like to know what nefarious scheme I have plotted against your family, right? I can clear that up for you right now. None. And I made that clear to jack as well.

Ashley: Okay.

Tucker: Okay.

Ashley: I hope it’s true.

Tucker: So, are you here to try to chase me out of town? Jack and Billy already tried and failed. Pathetically, I might add.

Ashley: Um, why don’t you just shut up and I’ll tell you why I’m here tucker.

Tucker: Oh, yes, ma’am.


Tucker: Yeah, I wish I could believe your apology, but unfortunately, I don’T.

Ashley: I didn’t think it was gonna be easy.

Tucker: That’s the problem. It seems a little too easy. You want some coffee?

Ashley: Sure. I’d love a cup.

Tucker: Because, uh, I texted you recently and I asked you if there was any way back from where we are and you responded with a very emphatic no. So, what happened? Did you have some kind of change of heart over boston or cincinnati on the flight home?

Ashley: Not really a change of heart. Maybe I just started listening to my heart.

Tucker: Oh, yeah. Wouldn’t that be peachy? Except I see right through you, Ashley. You’re hoping I will let my guard down.

Ashley: Yeah, well, jack said you were gonna react like this.

Tucker: Jack said? Ha. Oh, you gotta love the irony.

Ashley: Yeah. Actually, I don’t love anything about this. Not even a little bit. It’s a struggle.

Tucker: Okay. Well, just for kicks, let’s pretend I did believe your apology. What would this I’m sorry of yours actually look like?

Nikki: Your father seems to think someone is scheming against him and they’re going to betray him soon and this is his idea of how to trick them into revealing themselves.

Victoria: Me though? He suspects me? I mean, how could he think I would stoop so low to use his mental struggles against him? Just because he demoted me? I mean, does he think that little of me, mom?

Nikki: No, of course not. He adores you. He adores both of you. Never doubt that.

Victoria: Well, then I just don’t understand.

Nikki: Well, personally, I think this is all Adam’s fault. After years of being double-crossed by his own son, victor now wonders if he can trust anybody he’s close to.

Victoria: That might be true, but it’s not an excuse. And I’m not sure that I can forgive him.


Nick: You know what, it doesn’t really matter how we handle the situation. The bottom line is when you find out someone you love is faking a decline in order to expose a traitor, it’s not an everyday occurrence. I think we all reacted accordingly.

Nikki: True.

Nick: So let’s not dwell on the previous rotten weeks. What is important is what we do going forward.

Nikki: If we could only figure out what that is.

Victoria: Actually, Nick has an idea that might help move things along.

Nikki: Oh, I’d love to hear it

Nick: Simple. We just go along with it. We act like we’re buying dad’s condition, while dad continues to set his trap. Hopefully, Adam walks right into it.

Nikki: Or Nate.

Sally: No, don’t get me wrong. I was right there too. I just– it would be very easy to just blame it all on you, but the truth is you were just being honest with me about where your heart is. It’s just not what I wanted to hear.

Adam: Well, it wouldn’t be the first time that I, uh, I didn’t read the room.

Sally: I think the kiss confused us both.

Adam: Yeah. Maybe. I don’t know. Maybe it was just me doing what I always do. Bulldozing my way through without any regard whatsoever for what you really wanted, which was nick. You know, you had a right to be resistant. I poison whatever it is I touch.

Sally: Adam.

Adam: No, it’s– it’s the truth. You know, sometimes I think that I’m just cursed to be this– this catalyst of bad fortune. And it’s not that I try to be, but sometimes I just always end up in the middle of it. With my career, my relationship, family. Even when I have good intentions and god knows I have not always had them, I just always manage to screw it up. With you, my father.


Adam: You know, you’re really good at this.

Sally: What?

Adam: Pep talks. I’m sure when you get your new company off the ground, you’re gonna be an inspiring boss.

Sally: Thank you.

Adam: Mm-hmm. I know that you inspire me.

Sally: So, are you gonna do it?

Adam: You’re forgetting one thing, big thing, in between me and Nick.

Sally: No, I’m definitely not forgetting it. And I do know that I am part of the conflict between the two of you, but this is way bigger than that too. And Nick will eventually see that if you tell him what you just told me.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Summer: Wow.

Daniel: Mm-hmm.

Summer: Okay. What are we calling this style? Bachelor pad chic? I mean, I don’t see an air mattress or a foosball table, but I actually think that you have room for one over here.

Daniel: Don’t worry, foosball table’s coming. Beer pong table is gonna be over here along with the kegerator.

Summer: Very swanky. But I actually like that lamp. I mean, if it was in a different place, I would like it.

Daniel: Yeah, my designer has great taste.

Summer: Lily?

Daniel: No, I hired someone. Sally spectra.

Summer: Nice.

Daniel: I know. Look, she just launched a new design firm. Lily suggested that I call her.

Summer: Yeah, because why would you want to consult with your sibling who’s in the design industry?

Daniel: I just figured that you know, you’d be busy running a big fashion company.

Summer: Oh, stop. You thought that I would be pushy and decorate how I wanted, not how you wanted.

Daniel: No, that’s not it.

Summer: Eh?

Daniel: Yes, maybe that was it.

Summer: For your coffee table.

Daniel: Thank you. Oh, this is really cool. Thank you.

Summer: Yeah.

Daniel: So, um, I heard chance got shot.

Summer: Yeah, it’s pretty awful.

Chance: How is he? Have you heard?

Sharon: Okay, so tell me! What’s the latest? How is aria doing with her hearing aids?

Tessa: Sharon, you saw her yesterday.

Sharon: But she’s a baby. She’s going to make changes and progress on a daily basis and I want to hear all the details. So, how is she adapting to them?

Mariah: Uh, well, I– I can say the kid likes what she likes and she knows what she doesn’t like. We’ve used all of the tips that dr. George suggested.

Tessa: And aria is able to handle the hearing aids for about an hour, but after that, no way.

Mariah: No.

Sharon: Okay, but still, an hour, that’s amazing.

Mariah: Yeah. And to see her little face, her reactions. I mean, it’s obvious she can hear us, which is great.

Tessa: Oh, we read her a bedtime story last night. Mariah was doing all these different voices.

Mariah: And just smiling and giggling and laughing. I’m highly entertaining, clearly.

Sharon: And you didn’t video chat me? Okay. I see how it is.

Mariah: Well, uh, actually we’ll do that later because right now, you have a visitor.

Lily: Thank you.

Devon: You’re welcome.

Jill: Did nate tell you why he wanted us to meet?

Lily: No, he just texted me and devon seeing if we could be here and if you would meet us here as well.

Jill: Damn right. I can’t wait to hear about this.

[ Knocking on door ]

Devon: I will get it. Hey.

Claire: Almost time for a new one. You’ve had a lot already, but… I need you nice and calm until everyone arrives. The big family reunion.

Jill: What is she doing here? What’s going on?

Mamie: Calm down, jill. I’m here because nate wants me here.

Nate: I asked aunt mamie to come along as family for moral support.

Mamie: Now, this is your business. I’m not saying another word.

Jill: No, you won’T. We do have something we have to discuss though, mamie. Now is not the time nor the place though.

Mamie: Well, I’m looking forward to hearing whatever’s on your mind, jill.

Lily: So, nate, what did you want to talk to us about?

Nate: Yes. Um, lily, devon, I’m here because I’m hoping we can take a step closer towards repairing our relationship. Make amends. And if you’ll have me, I would like to return to chancellor-winters.

Summer: Uh, I saw chance in the hospital.

Daniel: Really?

Summer: Yeah, we’re friends. Um, the bullet went through his upper chest, near his shoulder area, so it wasn’t as bad as it could have been.

Daniel: Lucky guy, I guess. I mean, if you can call someone who’s been shot, lucky.

Summer: Yeah, and somebody that wasn’t supposed to be in the field at all. But, uh, yeah, he’s supposed to be getting out of the hospital today, so.

Daniel: Hm. And have things changed since the last time we talked about you and chance?

Summer: There is no me and chance, daniel.

Daniel: Right. But you said–

Summer: That I had some feelings. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know what I said.

Daniel: Well, I just thought maybe things had moved on from there.

Summer: No. Nothing has changed. Chance is still with sharon and I’m not gonna get in the middle of it.

Daniel: Come on. They haven’t been together for that long. It can’t be that serious, right?

Summer: What are you suggesting? That I– I try to break them up?

Daniel: I’m merely suggesting that maybe chance has feelings for you too. Maybe this thing with sharon has run its course.

Summer: You know, you sound like mom, right? Trying to play matchmaker.

Daniel: Wow. Okay. It was just a question.

Summer: Look, chance just sees me as a friend. So, it’s kind of pointless to hope for more.

Sharon: You’re up and around and you’re here. Should you be? Is this allowed? Do you wanna sit down?

Chance: I look all right, right?

Sharon: You look wonderful.

Mariah: Chance, we are super glad that it wasn’t anything more serious.

Sharon: I want to hug you, but I don’t want to hurt you.

Chance: No. Are you kidding me? Come here. Get in here.

Sharon: What did the doctor say? How long is is the recovery gonna take?

Tessa: How long do you have to wear that sling? I mean, maybe we could get you one that’s more stylish.

Chance: What’s wrong with this one?

Mariah: What about the person that shot you? What happens to him?

Chance: Well–

Nina: A text? I get a text to meet you here. What is wrong with you? Why didn’t you let me pick you up from the hospital?

Chance: Ooh, I felt this coming. I’m sorry. I just– I didn’t want you to worry.

Nina: Oh, come on, I’m your mother. I’m always gonna worry about you. Besides, you give me no choice. All of the times I wanted to come to your side and couldn’T. And now I’m here in town and I get a text?

Mariah: You’re in trouble.

Tessa: This might be worse than a bullet.

Chance: Well, you know what? The chief of police can handle checking out of the hospital on his own, okay?

Nina: No, no. You’re my son, not chief of police. Hi, my name is damion clark. If you have both medicare and medicaid, i have some really encouraging news that you’ll definitely want to hear.

Chance: Mom…

Sharon: What conversation is that?

Chance: I just admitted that getting shot this time reminded me of getting shot last time. And the other situations where my life was on the line.

Nina: He’s questioning whether it’s time for a career change.

Chance: Questioning. That’s all. I’m not making any decisions.

Nina: Chance, you gotta trust your gut, you know? If you feel it’s time to go, then it’s time to go. You’ve spent so many years serving the public in so many ways. Just, when is it enough?

Chance: I understand that. I’ve just become chief though. Okay? You know, I’m just not really sure if walking away is the right move right now.

Nina: Well get sure.

[ Chance chuckling ]

Chance: Yeah. It’s on my mind. Don’t worry. There’s just a lot to consider. And you know what? I would honestly like sharon’s opinion on this.

Daniel: You know, that was a low blow comparing me to mom.

Summer: It stings. I know. Okay, enough about me and my love life. Let’s talk about you and your love life.

Daniel: Oh, no. No, thank you.

Summer: Oh, you don’t want to do that?

Daniel: Uh-uh.

Summer: Is there a reason?

[ Knocking on door ]

Daniel: That sounds like a pretty good reason. Hey.

Lucy: Hi, dad.

Daniel: Oh, luce and, uh, friend. Cool. Come on in. Yeah.

Heather: Hi.

Daniel: Hi. Good, good.

Lucy: Summer, hi.

Summer: Hi.

Lucy: It’s so good to see you.

Summer: Good to see you.

Lucy: Dad, you have furniture?

Daniel: I have some, yes. More is coming.

Lucy: What about my bedroom?

Daniel: Uh, your mattress should be here in a couple of days, I believe. Um, you know, I’m just gonna go ahead and ask. What’s with the pineapple?

Lucy: Oh, right. Um, happy housewarming.

Heather: On the way over here, lucy asked if we should bring you some kind of gift. So, I stopped at the grocery store to pick up this and uh, lucy insisted that she bring you a pineapple as well.

Daniel: Oh…

Lucy: You see pineapples all over savannah. Remember, dad? They mean welcome and hospitality. So, yeah.

Daniel: Normally, you see them on the front door or the stair railing, but hey, one you can eat. It’s great.

Summer: So much better.

Daniel: So much better. You know what? I love it. Thank you.

Lucy: You’re welcome.

Heather: In addition to welcoming you with alcohol and fruit, I wanted to share some good news.

Daniel: Okay?

Heather: I have an interview this afternoon at chancellor-winters for a position on their legal team.

Lucy: Isn’t that great, dad?

Daniel: It’s fantastic.

Heather: Thank you so much, daniel for, you know, making it happen.

Daniel: I think you should probably be thanking lily. Look, I hope that this all works out for you. I don’t know what I’m saying. Of course, it’s gonna work out. I mean, you’re gonna crush that interview.

Devon: Okay. So, you wanna come back to chancellor-winters?

Nate: I do.

Lily: Well, I mean, it’s not surprising. Aunt mamie’s been pushing for it.

Devon: All you’ve been talking about the last few months is how happy you are at newman and how much they respect you and how great of a boss victoria is. So, what’s changed?

Nate: Uh, I’m no longer at newman.

Devon: Did you blow things up with them like you did with us?

Nate: It depends on who you ask.

Lily: What does that mean?

Nate: Well, you all know victor retook the ceo seat.

Devon: Yeah, and demoted victoria.

Nate: Yep. So, he stepped in, made some changes. Uh, put nikki in charge of newman media, appointed adam as my assistant.

Jill: Oh, that man does love a good power play, doesn’t he?

Nate: Yep. Then he proceeded to lay a trap for his children and me. Because he suspected someone was going to betray him.

Jill: Oh, victor, of course you did.

Devon: What exactly did he do?

Nate: He pretended to be ill. Faked confusion, memory loss. He was trying to see who might take advantage of his mental decline.

Lily: That’s horrible. He let his children think that he was dying like ashland locke did with victoria?

Nate: Well, not dying. He just wanted them to think he lost his grip on reality.

Lily: How is that any better?

Jill: Oh, my god. But that is such a victor newman move if I ever heard one.

Lily: Okay. So, sorry. What does it have to do with you leaving the company?

Devon: Yeah. Did you figure out what he was doing and then call him out?

Nate: No. Just the opposite. I fell for the charade. I tried to protect the man. Get him the help. And it blew up in my face.

Claire: I’m not really surprised you tried to escape. You love to talk about how strong you are. How you can handle anything. This must be so strange for you. To be so vulnerable, not in charge of anything. You must have so many questions. Aunt jordan will explain everything. Once everyone’s here. If I tried to tell you, I’m afraid I’d get too emotional. I’m usually good at keeping everything inside, but this… this is too big. Too important. You could say I’ve been waiting for this thanksgiving my whole life. All right. Time to go set things in motion. Sweet dreams, nikki. Enjoy them while you can.

Nate: I thought I would discreetly get victor the treatment he needed. Take him to an out-of-the-way place where there’d be no chance of media leaks.

Jill: Like a facility or a clinic or something?

Nate: Yes. Yes. And it was a good plan. But victor saw it as me trying to get him out of the way so victoria and I could take control.

Devon: And that’s not what you were trying to do?

Nate: No. Not at all. I was concerned about the man and I wanted him to get proper treatment. But victor was hell-bent on finding a traitor. So he decided that’s what I was.

Jill: Oh, not you. You would never turn on anyone for your own advancement.

Nate: I’ve owned that in the past, jill, and i wouldn’t do that this time. Not with a man’s well-being at stake.

Devon: So, there was no part of you that thought that this was a good opportunity maybe to get victoria back to the top spot?

Nate: My only objective was to protect victor’s health and well-being. My plan accomplished both.

Devon: Okay. But why would victor fire you if he didn’t have any proof of what he thought you were doing?

Nate: I made arrangements for him to be placed in a facility. I set it up proactively so that things can move smoothly and quickly.

Devon: So, you committed him without his consent?

Nate: It was to assure he’d have a place set if needed. That is all. The one who was gunning to take advantage of victor’s weakness was adam.

Devon: And there’s proof of that?

Nate: Adam himself is the proof.

Lily: But victor didn’t see it?

Nate: Adam is playing the redeemed black sheep. So, victor feels the need to believe his son is sincere. Adam is family, I’m not.

Lily: So basically, now that you’re out of a job, you want us to forgive you and welcome you back to chancellor-winters.

Mamie: Welcome him back into the family, where he belongs.

Summer: So, I need to take off.

Heather: Oh, uh, summer, I hope you’re not leaving because of us. Because if– if you and daniel were in the middle of something, we can go.

Summer: No. No, please. You two stay. I gotta go pick up food and get back to work anyway. Lucy, so good to see you. I hope that walnut grove treats you well. Heather, welcome home. And you, invite me over when sally’s done with this place. I kind of want to see what she comes up with.

Daniel: Yeah, of course.

Lucy: Well, I am gonna go see my room. I was thinking of a mural wall.

Daniel: Mural wall? Hey, luce. Hey, luce. What kind of mural? Hey, what kind of mural are you thinking? Cool. Awesome. What?

Heather: Well, summer seems very curious about, uh, our dynamic.

Mariah: Well, we are gonna let you guys talk. It was good to see you, mom, and you, nina. Chance, we’re so happy that you’re out of the hospital, on the mend.

Tessa: I second all of that.

Sharon: Well, I’m gonna come by later so I can hang out with aria.

Mariah: Uh, yeah. We’ll put the hearing aids in for your visit. It’ll be great.

Tessa: Oh, she’s gonna love hearing her grandma’s voice.

Mariah: Bye, you guys.

Tessa: Bye.

Sharon: Bye.

Chance: Well, not to put too fine of a point on it, but I am starving.

Nina: I’m sorry, when are you not starving? The appetite on this one. Since he was a kid.

Chance: I barely got to eat anything in the hospital. So, why don’t I take my two favorite ladies to breakfast?

Jill: Mamie, dear. You did promise that you wouldn’t intrude on our discussion.

Mamie: No. What I said was that I would not intrude on any business discussion. This is much more than that.

Jill: Is it?

Mamie: Yes. This is about the cousins, lily, devon and nate taking a giant step towards reconciliation. And this is the very thing that my whole journey has been about.

Jill: Nate, why should we bring you back to chancellor-winters? I’m having a very hard time buying you as a team player. I mean, you just keep bouncing back between companies, pissing everybody off as you go.

Nate: Well, jill, um, I learned a lot since my departure from chancellor-winters. I’m past the need to prove myself at every turn, no matter the cost. I have a new appreciation for the value of collaboration. I’m better at knowing when to speak up and when to listen. I’ve also learned that my way or the highway isn’t gonna get me very far. I’m more flexible than I used to be. Point is, I’ve learned a lot from my wins, my losses, my highs, my lows, and more importantly, the meaning of family. I’m ready to be the best man for the job. And a proper cousin to you two, my family.

Abby: Chance. Hey, I had no idea that you were out of the hospital. That must mean that you’re doing well, right?

Chance: I’m doing better. Thank you. And thanks for coming by the hospital. I was a little groggy when you did, but I remember you being there. That’s about it.

Abby: Don’t worry about it. I’m just so thankful that you’re okay. And whenever you’re ready to see dominic, we will set up a visit.

Chance: I would love that. Thank you. Thank you.

Abby: Well, um, breakfast is on me.

Nina: Oh. Hey, abby, can you take a break for a few minutes and join us?

Abby: Um, sure. Okay.

Nina: So, I’m just curious. As dom’s mother, how would you feel if chance quit law enforcement? Just chose a totally different career?

Chance: Mom, mom, mom, mom, please. Don’t put her on the spot, please.

Nina: Just– just curious.

Abby: It’s fine. Um, when chance and I were married, I was constantly living in fear that something bad was going to happen to him. And then, something bad did happen. Spain. We know all about that. So, um, just because we’re not together anymore doesn’t mean that I stopped worrying about chance. I still care about you. And dominic thinks the world of you and someday, he’s gonna worry about you too. Here we are, we are sitting here talking about chance being shot at work, again. So, if you’re talking about walking away from the force, I’m all for it.

Nikki: Mm. As someone living with type 2 diabetes,

[ Nikki exhaling ]

Nikki: I can’t stay here. I have to find my phone. And victor. I have to call victor.

[ Nikki panting ]

Daniel: Our dynamic? We have a dynamic?

Heather: Well, come on, daniel. I saw the look your sister gave you and she sent a few my way as well. What’s, uh, what’s going on?

Daniel: Summer, you know, she’s just worried that you moving back to town, it’s gonna dredge up my old demons. I’m gonna be reminded of my spiral and I’m gonna spiral again.

Heather: She thinks it’s my fault?

Daniel: No. No, she is well aware that it was my fault. But, you know, she also knows how ashamed I was of the place that I got to when things got so dark for me. And come on, you must have thought about this stuff too. It must have crossed your mind.

Heather: No. It hasn’t, daniel. I know you’re in a better headspace now. I know you’re not going to hurt me and most importantly, lucy, like before. If I didn’t believe that, I wouldn’t have moved back here.

Daniel: Well, thank you for the support. And for the vote of confidence.

Heather: Daniel, I like who you are now. Very, very much. I mean, you have to know that, don’t you?

Abby: I mean, chance, if you did decide to walk away from the force, what would you do instead? Would you go back to security consulting or private detective?

Chance: Mm… professional baseball player, maybe? No? No? No, honestly, I’ve given zero thought to it because I don’t think I’m done being chief just yet.

Sharon: It’s a big decision, chance, which we all respect.

Chance: Thank you, sharon.

Nina: You know, maybe you should consider the corporate world. What if, you know, big business was your true calling?

Chance: Where did that come from?

Nina: Well, you– you’re a chancellor, son. I mean, big business would be a natural field for you. Don’t you think?

Summer: Chance, you’re out of the hospital. How are you feeling?

Chance: Hey, not too bad. I tell you, this thing is getting me a lot of sympathy.

Summer: Well, you deserve it.

Chance: Oh.

Nate: I’ve kept up with what’s happening at chancellor-winters. I read all the business press. Uh, so I’m up to speed on what’s been accomplished. I think I can be of use in a number of areas. And like aunt mamie said, I want to feel like I’m part of the family again.

Lily: Well, those are two separate things. So, do you want to be welcome back into the family or do you want a job now that you’re unemployed?

Nate: Lily, I miss you. And you too, devon. Look, our estrangement has gone on too long. I– I hate that we’re not as close as we used to be.

Mamie: So do I.

Nate: And so does my mom. I wanna make her proud. And malcolm and my dad and dru and neil. I know we can get there. Look, neil and malcolm always found a way back from their issues. And lily, you know, dru and my mom clashed plenty, but they always made up.

Jill: Okay. Nate, I really appreciate you putting yourself on the line like you did. That wasn’t easy and I do believe you were sincere when you said that you regretted betraying us in the past. But now, devon and lily and I have to discuss whether we want you back and lily, you know, dru and my mom clashed plenty, but they always made up.

Jill: Okay. Nate, I really appreciate you putting yourself on the line like you did. That wasn’t easy and I do believe you were sincere when you said that you regretted betraying us in the past. But now, devon and lily and I have to discuss whether we want you back at chancellor-winters.

Lily: Yeah, we’ll talk about it.

Devon: And no promises.

Nate: Thank you for listening. Aunt mamie.

Mamie: Oh, and jill, I do look forward to us having a discussion about our issues.

Jill: Oh, I do too, mamie. Don’t you worry.

Devon: I’ll walk you two out. See you.

Jill: Well. Hm.

Lily: Uh, I don’t know. I mean, he seemed sincere.

Jill: Mm-hmm.

Lily: And honest and, I mean, I know that we all believe in second chances. I know I wouldn’t be here without them.

Jill: Yep.

Devon: Yeah. But let’s, like, take a second and really think about this. ‘Cause I don’t think that he’d care at all about chancellor-winters if he hadn’t gotten fired. And this is now what? Two strikes on him in the corporate world? One from us, one from newman? And I think I’d like to learn a little more about that victor story before we just go ahead and make a decision.

Lily: No. Yeah, you’re right. I mean, he could be lying to us.

Jill: I don’t think he was lying. I don’t think he was making that whole thing up. It sounds too much like victor newman. And he knows how easy it would be for us to check it out. You would just say something to abby and she would talk to her siblings.

Devon: Sure. Yeah. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that his intentions weren’t self-serving. Or at least serving victoria.

Lily: Jill, what do you think about nate coming back?

Jill: Would it have been my first choice? No. He crossed a hell of a line trying to sell us out. But I do agree with you. I think he was being sincere. So, yeah, I might be persuaded to give it a try if nate is being straight with us because, whoa, we’re gonna need all the support we can get right now.

Devon: What does that mean, jill?

Summer: Thank you.

Abby: Summer. Hey. Um, I think we need to talk.

Summer: Yeah. What about?

Abby: What’s going on with you and chance?

Summer: I don’t– I don’t know what you’re talking about. Oh, my god. I guess it really is that obvious, huh?

Lily: I know what jill is talking about.

Devon: Okay. Does anybody want to let me know what jill’s talking about?

Lily: I was gonna tell you today. I just– I know that you’ve been really trying to work things out with tucker.

Devon: Okay. And?

Lily: There’s evidence that tucker is involved with mamie’s investment in chancellor-winters.

Devon: I know that’s what we thought.

Lily: No, we have the proof. I’ve seen it. So not only does mamie have a vested interest in chancellor-winters, but so does tucker.

Jill: And that interest most likely involves getting rid of me.

Devon: And what’s this evidence that you found?

Lily: Tucker has been making investments with mamie’s firm, L.B.B. And it’s not a coincidence. I mean, they are colluding somehow.

Mamie: Oh, I’m so proud of you, nathan jr. You handled everything just right today. Your cousins would be foolish not to have you back into the family business.

Nate: Thank you for the vote of confidence, aunt mamie. But I’m not so sure if that’s gonna happen. I mean, sure we’ve taken steps in the right direction, but it’s obvious devon needs more time or more convincing to forgive me. If he ever does. And that whole victor fiasco surely didn’t help.

Mamie: Well, I think he’ll get there. And if he doesn’t, you just leave him to me. I think I can get him across the finish line.

Nina: Well, thank you, dear, for breakfast. I have to, um, jump on a call with my agent, but do you want me to drop you at your apartment so you can get some rest?

Chance: Uh, you know what? I think I’m gonna stick around here for a while. If that’s okay with you.

Sharon: I’ll suffer through.

Nina: Okay, good. I’ll see you.

Chance: See you.

Nina: I love you, sweetheart.

Chance: I love you more.

Nina: Bye, sharon.

Sharon: Bye.

Chance: Hi.

Sharon: Hi.

Chance: I missed you.

Sharon: I missed you too. So, now that it’s just the two of us, how do you really feel about possibly leaving the force and doing something else?

Chance: We talked about this before.

Sharon: Yeah. And you said that as frustrating as it can be sometimes, especially with folks who believe that the law doesn’t apply to them and as dangerous as it can get on occasion, you liked helping people and keeping them safe.

Chance: Yeah. And you know what? I felt really good about being chief. I hate the idea of leaving my guys in the lurch, you know? But hey, I guess getting shot is a pretty good reason to rethink your life.

Sharon: Well, whatever you decide is fine by me. I hope you know that. I just don’t want you to feel pressured into making a decision.

Chance: Thank you. Really. No, I promise, I’m gonna do what’s best for me.

[ Nikki groaning ]

Nikki: Oh, I feel so weak and light-headed. Like I’ve been…

[ Nikki inhaling ] Oh, my god. No. No. No.

[ Nikki panting ] No.

Jordan: Don’t get soft on me now, claire.

Claire: Aunt jordan.

Jordan: We have waited so long and we’re so very, very close.

Narrator: Next week on the young and the restless…

Jill: Come to work with me at chancellor-winters. Honey, I will teach you the ropes of the business world.

Abby: Well, it is so good to see all of you. Michael, gloria, I’m glad that you’re home and I’m glad that you kept her out of prison.

Nikki: Oh, god. What have I done?

Ashley: I bet you’re happy to see me, right?

Diane: Yeah. You know, we’re never going to be besties, but we are family. So peace for Jack’s sake?

Ashley: Absolutely. You saved my life.

Diane: Oh, there is that.

Ashley: So, I will try very hard not to hate you.

Diane: Well, I will try hard not to hate you back.

Ashley: Great. How’s everybody, anyway?

Diane: Um, uh, well, Kyle left this morning. I haven’t seen him. Traci, I think she had dinner plans, and, oh, my grandson is upstairs getting ready for his bath.

Ashley: Oh, my grandson. I have to see Dominic tomorrow. Absolutely.

Diane: Ashley.

Ashley: Yeah.

Diane: Um, hey, I’m– I’m sorry about the way your marriage turned out. I mean, I– I– I don’t know your side of things directly, of course, but, um, there is no doubt in my mind that tucker is to blame for whatever happened.

Ashley: Yeah. You know what? It’s okay. We don’t really have to dwell on that, okay?


Jack: When I realized you were listening in, I was tempted to beat you at your own game.

Tucker: All right.

Jack: Yes. Some fake conversations, send you charging off in the wrong direction. The entertainment value was hard to pass up.

Tucker: But you did, pass it up.

Jack: Well, I realized I didn’t want to stoop to your level.

Tucker: There’s good old Jack, righteous as ever.

Jack: I don’t need to stoop to your level. See, I have no doubt in my mind, the Abbotts will always have the upper hand where you’re concerned, so whatever it is you’re really up to here, whatever it is you want to accomplish, I have some advice. Give it up. Go away, back to your monastery or your mountain top. Anywhere but here.

Tucker: No, I like being close to my son and my grandson. Besides, running away is really not my style. It sounds like more of an Abbott trait.

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Nikki: Claire! Claire, answer me!

[ Nikki sighing ] All right, I have to think. I have to think. What is happening? What arrangements is she making in genoa city? What do you want from me? All right. Just calm down. You’ve dealt with worse than this. All that matters right now is getting out of here. I can figure this out. I can do this and when I’m out… there’ll be hell to pay!

Victoria: Why am I not surprised that you two are here? You’ve just come from being with dad. Am I right?

Adam: Yes, we have.

Victoria: And you want to try to convince me to stay on at newman because now you are the good and faithful son all of a sudden. Even though everybody knows that’s a lie, except for dad, who’s desperate to believe it because otherwise, you’re just a reminder that not everything victor newman touches is golden.

Adam: Yeah. And you hate the fact that maybe I did the right thing, for the right reasons. Because then you would have to take me seriously and would consider that victor might actually trust me. And that terrifies you, doesn’t it?

Victoria: No. See what terrifies me actually is that you might blow up the family and the company. But on a personal level, not a chance.

Nick: Okay. Will you two just stop, okay? Things are actually blowing up around us and we need to figure out a way on how to fix it.

Adam: You’re right. I’m sorry, victoria.

Victoria: I’m so sorry, adam.

Nick: There we go. That was nice. Okay, let’s get to the point of why we’re here. Vic, what is it gonna take to convince you to stay at newman?

Lily: So, what do you think?

Jill: I think it’s beautiful. It may have been devon’s before, but you certainly made it your own. This is a lovely place to call home, honey.

Lily: Yeah, I think so too. And with devon and abby at the chancellor house again…

Jill: Ah, yes, devon and abby. And with little dominic racing up and down the halls.

Lily: You think katherine would care about his little handprints on the walls?

Jill: I think katherine would frame those little handprints.

Lily: Ah, true. Can I get you something? Water? Coffee?

Jill: No, I can’t stay long and I assume you didn’t invite me over here to admire your décor, so–

Daniel: Actually, no, she didn’T. There’s been a development at chancellor-winters that you need to hear about.

Jill: What? Something’s happened.

Lily: Yeah, you could say that. Daniel learned more about mamie’s interest in the company.

Jill: Well, then I damn well want to know about it. Let’s hear it.

Daniel: The infiltration doesn’t stop with mamie. The man behind the curtain is none other than tucker mccall.

Jill: Tucker mccall and mamie johnson? Well, that is a match made in hell.

Audra: Thank you.

Tucker: Hey, I got your text. Where’s the fire?

Audra: Have a seat, tucker. You know, in fact, why don’t you grab a drink? You’re not gonna like this.

Diane: Kyle, what’s wrong?

Kyle: Um. Why don’t– why don’t you pour yourself a drink? You’re gonna need it. Hi, my name is damioniane: What’s going on?

Kyle: I hate doing this, for a bunch of reasons.

Diane: Doing what? What is it?

Kyle: It– it’s bad, mom. It’s bad. There will be a lot of “I told you so”s and a lot of groveling on my part to dad. But I– mom, I hope you’ll at least understand why I did the things I did.

Diane: All right. Go on.

Kyle: I’m ashamed and I’ve rationalized a lot to myself and now–

Diane: Kyle, sweetheart, look who you’re talking to. Whatever it is, I– I promise. No– no judgment. Just support, you know that, right?

Kyle: If I didn’t know that, I’d keep this to myself and let it eat me alive. Mom, I– I almost sold out dad and jabot. I almost sold out our entire family to tucker mccall.

Tucker: Okay. Hit me.

Audra: Um… kyle suddenly grew a conscience.

Tucker: Ah. How big of a conscience?

Audra: He’s backing out of our arrangement.

Tucker: And?

Audra: Tucker, there’s every possibility he’s gonna tell his father.

Tucker: Oh, I would say it’s a certainty. Jack already suspects I have something in the works. Kyle will confirm it. The abbotts are nothing, if not predictable.

[ Audra scoffing ]

Audra: So, you knew this was coming? You knew kyle would back out?

Victoria: Well, I gotta say, you know, this is quite a moment. The two of you working in tandem at dad’s command.

Nick: It wasn’t a command.

Adam: Actually, it was a command.

Victoria: You know, if dad ordered you to bring me back to newman, I’m afraid that he’s gonna be very disappointed and you are gonna let him down. I mean, of course, he knows that I would come back if you walk away. Or better yet, if he fires you. Otherwise, I’ll have to respectfully decline.

Adam: Well, there you go, nick. We got our answer. Do you want me to call dad or are you gonna do it?

Nick: What our dad wants is for the three of us to work together, okay? Now, a day ago, you were terrified about losing dad, right? Well, it turns out dad is the same victor newman he always has been. He wants the three of us to work together at his company, and he is not wrong.

Victoria: You know, I just think that that’s kind of funny. Coming from the guy that left newman.

Nick: Okay. That’s fair. I’ll admit it. I was wrong. My place is at newman and it always has been. I’m back, vic, 100%.

Victoria: Well, I guess two out of three isn’t bad. I hope you guys have a really wonderful time working together and I hope dad enjoys every minute of it.

Nick: Oh, come on. Are you really gonna do this to me?

Victoria: What, nicholas? What is being done to you?

Nick: I am stuck in the middle between dad and adam with no ally. Do you think that sounds appealing to me?

Victoria: Well, you’re the one that wants to stay on no matter what.

Nick: Look, we both know that eventually he’s gonna do something stupid and shoot himself in the foot. It is inevitable.

Adam: Okay. Not that I don’t treasure the kind words of encouragement, but need I remind you that I didn’t plan any of this. Now, victor seems to have confidence in me, so why can’t the two of you?

Nick: If adam implodes and no one is there to mitigate the fallout, he’s gonna drag dad and the company down with him.

Adam: You realize that I can hear you, right?

Nick: You need to stop talking and let me handle this.

Adam: Okay because you’re doing such a great job. I think you’ve actually got her on the hook–

Nick: Adam, enough.

Adam: Okay. I’m done. Not another peep from me.

Nick: Like it or not, this is an all-or-nothing scenario. Either the three of us work together or we’re all out and dad is gonna clean house.

Victoria: And yet somehow, adam will even survive that.

Adam: It’s a gift.

[ Lock clicking ]

Nick: Vic, think about it. Dad faked this mental decline to prove a point and it worked. Nate ended up showing his true colors.

Victoria: They’re not as malicious as you or dad wants to think.

Nick: This isn’t about nate. All right. Look, I hate even saying this out loud, but someday the decline is going to be real and do we want him to be the one who’s on the inside looking out for dad and the company?

Adam: Oh, perish the thought.

Nick: I thought you said you were gonna be quiet.

Adam: Oh, well, I lied.

Nick: Would we really be okay with letting him be in charge if, heaven forbid, something did happen to dad?

Victoria: Of course not. But you’ll be there, right?

Nick: Vic, we need each other, all right? We are the safety net between dad and adam.

[ Adam chuckling ]

Adam: My god, you two are unbelievable. I could negotiate world peace, I could cure cancer, eliminate global warming and feed the poor and you would still think, “that son of a bitch is still up to something.” Listen, I’m only gonna say this once, so listen carefully. All I care about is making this work. I don’t wanna best you. I have no interest in tanking the company and destroying my son’s inheritance, even to spite my loving siblings. Okay? Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll let you get back to your boring little tedious conspiring on how to shackle me and throw me into the newman dungeon. I care about one thing and one thing only: What our dad thinks. And as long as he’s got my back, I don’t care how much you two distrust me. But you know who will care about it? Victor newman. So good luck with that.

Nick: So, what’s it gonna be?

Daniel: My mother told me that tucker made some sizable investments through mamie’s financial firm. There you go.

Jill: So, has it been confirmed?

Daniel: Lily’s team verified it.

Lily: In and of itself, it proves nothing. But, I mean, why would tucker invest millions into an account that’s being managed by the same person who bought victor’s share of chancellor-winters?

Jill: Wow. Does devon know?

Daniel: No. No, he doesn’T. I wanted to get your reaction first and lily’s before dragging devon into it. I mean, his relationship with his father is already complicated. I didn’t really feel like it was my place to make matters any worse until we at least knew more.

Jill: Well, there’s no way that tucker isn’t involved in whatever it is mamie is up to. In fact, it was probably his idea in the first place.

[ Jill chuckling ] And she’s just too happy to go along with it. Those two really wanna screw me over. Both of them.

Tucker: I had a pretty good feeling kyle would choke. I said I would put him to the test and I meant it, but I knew the outcome. The kid just doesn’t have it in him.

Audra: So, you knew this would happen, but didn’t keep me in the loop?

Tucker: And run the risk of you overplaying your hand again? Why would I do that?

Audra: So, in other words, you’re putting me to the test as well. Do you trust anyone tucker?

Tucker: Mm-mm. And neither should you. And frankly, I’m a little disappointed in you.

Audra: For what?

Tucker: For not expecting kyle to do exactly what he did. You of all people should know that carnal attraction only goes so far.

Audra: Well, thank you for your deep and important life lessons.

Tucker: Plus, I learned all too brutally from ashley that– that abbott blood is– is thick as tar.

Audra: So, what now?

Tucker: You relax. We have a drink, we bide our time. This is all part of the process for junior. But believe me, we haven’t heard or seen the last of kyle abbott. So i

Kyle: You know how I felt I deserved to be reinstated as co-ceo of jabot. And not entitled, not nepoed in. Deserved.

Diane: Of course. And I wanted that for you and for jabot.

Kyle: Yeah, and we both knew that was never gonna happen. Dad was not gonna risk sending billy off the rails by taking his position away from him. And yeah, I was pissed.

Diane: I don’t blame you. Kyle, what did you do?

Kyle: I vented to audra and she tempted me with an offer.

Tucker: So, what kyle’s gonna do is confess to mommy and daddy as much of this as his courage will allow. And he’ll play the victim. “Poor me. Even after all I’ve done for jabot and all I’ve contributed.” Blah, blah, blah. And then you, jezebel. He will claim that you have, um, you’ve preyed on his emotions and tried to lure him into your web. Forced him to make bad choices, choices that involve tucker mccall. And he’s so ashamed to admit it, but he was tempted.

Kyle: Tucker and audra have a plan to stage a hostile takeover at jabot, but I don’t know the specifics and tucker has no interest in having any hands-on involvement running the company. He’s leaving that to audra.

Diane: And in turn, audra has offered you the position that jack wouldn’t give you.

Audra: If you knew this would happen, then it’s clearly what you wanted. But why?

Tucker: Jack, because he’s so predictable, is gonna use his son the way he tried to use his brother and send kyle right back into the belly of the beast. I’m the beast, of course. Only this time as a mole.

Victor: Hi.

Victoria: Hi.

Victor: What can I do for you?

Victoria: I just came by to thank you.

Victor: Thank me for what?

Victoria: For making it so obvious how little my feelings and my opinions mean to you.

Victor: What are you talking about?

Victoria: Daddy, you sent nicholas and adam by to basically emotionally strong-arm me into staying at newman. Really? I mean, in other words, you have zero respect for my instincts.

Victor: Oh, your instincts. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. That’s right. Wait a minute, your instincts that led you to billy boy abbott, J.T. Hellstrom, ashland locke and now, nate hastings. Hell of an instinct.

Victoria: My personal life has nothing to do with this. It’s business. You’re always the one who says it’s not personal, it’s business, so please leave my exes out of this, please.

Victor: My dear girl–

Victoria: This is about you that’s the problem.

Victoria: My personal life has nothing to do with this. It’s business. You’re always the one who says it’s not personal, it’s business, so please leave my exes out of this, please.

Victor: My dear girl–

Victoria: This is about you and me and what I bring to the table.

Victor: The problem is that you bring your personal business into the office. That’s the problem.

Victoria: Well, I’m sorry then, daddy. I’m confused. Why do you even want me back here?

Victor: Two reasons. For your mother and for yourself.

[ Stairs creaking ]

[ Nikki panting ]

Nikki: Hello. Hello. Please. Please, someone help me. Oh, god. Damn it!

[ Nikki gasping ]

Nikki: What do you want?

Claire: Tell you and spoil the surprise? I wouldn’t dream of it. Not until everyone’s here.

Nikki: Who?

Claire: That family that you cherish so much. Although god knows why? They are as dysfunctional as any family I’ve ever seen. They think they’re so superior, so above it all. They hurt people over perceived threats. They– they discard people like trash who they think are of no use to them. You all are the worst kind of people. Vicious, sanctimonious. You disgust me.

Nikki: What are you talking about?

Claire: Did you really believe that the time would never come to even the score? I have been very patient. I have waited long enough. Time’s up. Hm. That’s it. Close your eyes. Sleep. You’ll have your answers very soon. You’re not gonna like them, but you deserve all the pain they’ll cause.

Nikki: Stay away from my family.

Claire: Sorry, nikki. You’re not calling the shots anymore.

Victor: You know damn well, it means everything to your mother to have you here and thrive.

Victoria: Well, it’s just a little hard to thrive when you’re constantly pushing me down.

Victor: What do you mean I’m constantly pushing you down? What the hell are you talking about? You have sat in this chair for how long? I’m pushing you down? Watch your tone.

Victoria: You know what? Mom might actually have more respect for me if I call you out on your constant and outrageous acceptance of adam. In spite of all of his underhanded and hurtful and egregious moves that he’s always making. You know what, daddy? I think mom would actually even maybe applaud me if I cleaned out my desk and I walked away. Tell me something. How does it benefit me? How do I thrive by sticking around here and watching you continue to make excuses for adam every time he tries to stick a knife in your back.

Victor: Let me ask you something. What would you have without this company? Without me? You have nothing.

Diane: I get it. I completely understand the temptation. I– I really do. But the important thing is you didn’t act on it. That’s what matters.

Kyle: But I considered it.

Diane: But clearly, you regret that and now you’ve done the right thing. I’m– I’m proud of you.

Kyle: Yeah, I don’t know if I deserve that. I definitely didn’t expect it.

Diane: What did you expect?

Kyle: I don’t know. I thought you’d probably use it as another opportunity to rip into audra again. Or at least remind me of what an idiot I was to get involved with her in the first place.

Diane: I think I’ve said enough about that. You don’t need to hear it again.

Kyle: Now, all I have to do is tell dad.

Diane: No. No, not yet.

Audra: Look, I can see your logic about jack trying to use kyle as a mole. It’s the kind of thing the abbotts think is clever. But what I don’t think you’re taking into account is that kyle has obviously lost his nerve, which proves he’s weak. You know, why would he be so willing to just throw himself back into that arena?

Tucker: Because he’s so desperate for his dad’s approval.

Audra: Okay. That’s fair. So, I assume the plan would be to use this to our advantage by pointing kyle in exactly the wrong direction.

Tucker: Yeah, that’s one way to go about it.

Jill: I have been knocking on your door upstairs for the last five minutes. I assumed you were avoiding me.

Tucker: Why in the world would I do that? You know that feeling of having to rewash dishesthat didn’t get clean? I don’T. Cascade platinum plus has me doing dishes… differently. Scrub? Soak? Nope. I just scrape, load and I’m done. Only platinum plus is bigger.

With double the dawn grease

fighting power

and double

the scrubbing power.

For a no rewash clean…

and a cabinet ready shine.

Kyle: Why shouldn’t I go ahead and confess to dad? Mom, I hate the idea of looking him in the eye and pretending that nothing is wrong.

Diane: Don’t do that to yourself. Instead, recognize this as an opportunity and turn it into something positive. You’re just going to need some more information.

Kyle: I– I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Diane: Well, let me spell it out for you. It’s time that you turn the tables on audra and take advantage of her for a change.

Kyle: Mom, why would I do that?

Diane: Why? So you can find out what she and tucker are really planning and then you can bring the details back to your father. You don’t have to tell him that you almost fell into their trap. You can even say that this has been your plan all along. Just think how proud he’ll be of you.

Kyle: That would be a lie.

Diane: No, it would be a slight manipulation of the order of events. And he would be proud and grateful.

Kyle: Mom, I just–

Diane: So grateful, in fact, that he will forget all of this billy nonsense and give you exactly what you want.

Jill: Sweetie, would you excuse us, please? I need to talk to this one by myself.

Tucker: Would you mind?

Audra: Not at all.

Tucker: And, uh, contact me when you hear from that friend we were discussing.

Audra: Yeah, of course. Nice seeing you, jill.

Tucker: Is it just me or has it been too long?

Jill: Oh, it’s just you. Listen, tucker, I don’t wanna play games here. Okay, I don’t want any dancing around the issues or any snappy comebacks because I don’t have the time or the patience for it.

Tucker: What about just a few seconds to reminisce?

Jill: I know that you were behind mamie’s decision to invest in chancellor-winters. And I also know that for years, you’ve resented the fact that I’m running the company that your mama–

Tucker: Now, let’s leave katherine out of this, shall we?

Jill: Fair enough. Okay. I just came here to tell you that you do not intimidate me. As a matter of fact, you don’t even worry me.

Tucker: Really? Jill, you wouldn’t be sitting here if that were true. You’re worried because you know I have a plan. And that scares you because my plans don’t often fail.

Jill: Well, I guess I’ll just have to check with ashley on that one.

Lily: No matter what happens between jill and tucker, I have to tell devon what we found out.

Daniel: Okay. Maybe you should at least wait until we find out what tucker is actually up to.

Lily: Well, I mean, even if it’s nothing, I have to tell hi

Lily: No matter what happens between jill and tucker, I have to tell devon what we found out.

Daniel: Okay. Maybe you should at least wait until we find out what tucker is actually up to.

Lily: Well, I mean, even if it’s nothing, I have to tell him what’s going on.

Daniel: You don’t think that maybe he’s already a little suspicious?

Lily: Well, no, I know he is. I know he already talked to tucker about a possible connection to mamie. But one of the caveats of us working together again was full transparency and I take that very seriously. And plus, I hate the turmoil that he’s in over his father.

Daniel: I just think it’s a little premature. I mean, what if you say something to him and it blows up that turmoil even more before we get a chance to confirm whether it’s true or not?

Lily: I mean, look, devon is a strong intelligent person. If I tell him that we have this information, but we’re still digging, he’ll understand that. I think he would appreciate that a lot more than being left in the dark.

Victoria: So, you think that my life is empty without you and newman? Really? I mean, that’s the daughter that you think you raised. Oh, my god. Have you ever had any respect for me, at all?

Victor: I did very much.

Victoria: Did? Past tense?

Victor: Without this company to focus on, I’m worried that you’ll spin out.

Victoria: Oh, I see. So, you really think that I am that frail and unbalanced. That if I chose not to tolerate adam and accept this subservient role that I have here at newman, that I am that weak and that I– I would fall apart. Really, dad?

Victor: I honestly don’t know what to think about you anymore, all right?

Nick: I had a feeling this is where you were headed. How bad has it gotten?

Victoria: Well, dad seems seems to think that I– I live a meaningless life and that I would just completely fall apart without his guidance. Maybe I will, dad. Maybe you’re right. Maybe that’s exactly what I’m gonna do. I’m just gonna fall apart.

Victor: Okay.

Victoria: Yeah, I’m just gonna completely lose control. Look out, world! Victoria newman is about to spin out.

Nick: Vic…

[ Nick sighing ]

Nikki: Who’s there?

Nick: Hi. Is, uh, sharon in? Okay. Could I get a green tea? Thank you.

Audra: Tucker.

Tucker: Uh, I’ll call you later. It’s all good.

[ Victor sighing ]

Nikki: Victor.

Victor: That’s my sweet baby. Sh, you have to keep quiet. You can’t alert anyone that I’m here, all right?

Nikki: No.

Victor: But I’m gonna get you out of here.

Nikki: Victor, I don’t know what’s going on. Why is claire doing this to me? What does she want?

Victor: Sweetheart, everything is gonna be all right. Right now, you’re going to have to hold very still, okay? It’s going to hurt when I pull it out, all right?

Nikki: Okay. All right.

Victor: So, you ready?

Nikki: Yeah.

Victor: Okay.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Adam: Got your message.

Victor: Thank you for meeting me on such short notice.

Adam: Well, it’s not like I have a whole lot else going on lately. So, what did you want to see me about?

Nick: You told him yet?

Adam: Told me what?

Victor: I thought you would bring your sister?

Nick: Yeah, I don’t think vic’s coming.

Victor: That’s disappointing.

Nick: I think she’s made her position very clear.

Adam: Okay, wait a minute. What is this? Is this an ambush? What position? What’s going on here?

Victor: I have some news regarding your future, adam.

Victoria: Hi.

Nate: Victoria.

Victoria: You’re, um, you’re a hard man to get a hold of these days.

Nate: I thought we agreed to spend some time apart.

Victoria: You said you needed some time to process what happened with my father. I just didn’t realize that meant total avoidance.

Nate: Victoria, what–

Victoria: So, I guess I can conclude that, uh, you decided that you no longer want anything to do with me.

Nate: I’m not sure what I’m–

Victoria: Nate, why don’t you just say it? Just– just– just be honest. Just tell me that it’s over.

Audra: Uh, kyle. What a surprise. I– I wasn’t expecting you.

Kyle: I sent you a text asking if we could meet, but you didn’t respond to it.

Audra: Uh, yeah. No, I’ve just been swamped here. You know, with nikki gone for a few days, it’s a marathon of work. But to be completely honest, I thought you wanted to meet about something personal, so I decided to make you wait.

Kyle: Yeah, um.

Audra: But now that you’re here…

Kyle: It’s not about personal stuff, audra. This is about business.

Audra: Oh, you look so serious.

Kyle: I’m having second thoughts about going after jabot.

Nate: I’m not avoiding you, victoria.

Victoria: Yeah? Well, I mean, it sure seemed that way. No response to any of my texts. Radio silence when I left you any voice messages.

Nate: I thought I made it clear that I need some time to figure things out. Not just us. That whole clown show with your father. That– that’s still pretty fresh.

Victoria: So, you couldn’t at least pick up a phone?

Nate: I honestly don’t know what I would have said to you.

Victoria: How about, “hi, how’s it going?” I mean, that would have been enough. I just needed to connect with you. And I– I just needed to know if there was still a chance.

Nate: I’m sorry.

Victoria: I understand that you’re trying to figure a lot of things out right now and I’m not trying to push, but, I mean, can we at least get a drink, you know? Have a conversation? We don’t have to come to any conclusions about us, but we can have a drink as– as friends. I mean, friendship is still on the table, isn’t it?

Nate: Of course, it is.

Victoria: So, anyway, a lot has happened to me since the last time I saw you.

Nate: What do you mean?

Victoria: Well, I mean, that I’m– I’m sort of in the same kind of limbo that you are right now.

Nate: You didn’t quit your job, did you?

Victoria: No, not yet.

Nate: Don’t do that on my account.

Victoria: Okay. It wouldn’t be just that. I know that my dad overreacted, but, you know, his concerns weren’t completely unwarranted, nate.

Nate: He turned on me, victoria. Because he thought I had turned on him. He chose not to accept my explanation and fired me. And you fomented it by choosing to back adam. It fed victor’s belief that I was trying to undermine him.

Victoria: I own that.

Nate: But I swear to you, I set things in motion at the clinic purely as a protective measure to ensure your father had a place secured and the time necessary for treatment.

Victoria: I know, but it was a very presumptuous move. You have to admit that. My dad saw it as a coup.

Nate: I am tired of trying to defend myself.

[ Nate sighing ] So, what are you gonna do now?

Victoria: I don’t know. I don’t know where I fit in right now. My life just feels like, uh, it’s suddenly this completely muddled, confused mess. And I don’t have anyone to talk to about it. My mother’s out of town. Nicholas would just give me advice that I wouldn’t want to follow probably, and forget– forget about my dad. I’m not gonna talk to him about anything. I guess what I’m saying is that I miss talking with you. And nate, I miss you. I miss your wisdom and your kindness and your compassion.

Nate: I miss you too. But I’m not sure I can be that person for you right now.

Victoria: I see.

Nate: I was counting on you to back me up and you weren’t there for me. That doesn’t just go away.

Victoria: I’m not just trying to sweep it under the rug. I understand that. I– I didn’t ever mean to hurt you, but can’t we just grab a drink? Have a conversation? I mean, is that really too much to ask?

Victor: I want you both to know that victoria has threatened to walk away from the company if I offered you a position of any power.

Adam: Okay. Well, then why are we wasting each other’s time?

Nick: Look, will you just stop talking and listen for once?

Adam: No. What for? So pops can put a fatherly hand on my shoulder?

Victor: Are you finished?

Adam: Apparently so. At least at newman enterprises. Unless I’m missing something here?

Victor: I told victoria if she insisted on demanding that, that she would no longer have a job at this company.

Adam: What is this? Is this another game? A contest? What hoops have you arranged for me to jump through this time, dad?

Victor: Listen carefully. The games are over and you have won. The stance you took when everyone else thought that that my mental capacities were in decline. I could no longer run this company. You came up with a plan to support both me and the company.

Adam: Yeah. But that was my intention, 100%.

Victor: And I appreciate it. And if victoria doesn’t see it that way, so be it. I run the show around here. If she disagrees with that, she can take a walk.

Adam: Wow. Uh…

Victor: Is that all you have to say?

Adam: You’re gonna have to forgive me if I’m a little surprised that you would overthrow the golden child for me. And I’m a little skeptical. I mean, what’s your angle here?

Victor: No angles, no games. I want this family to finally work together. It is all I’ve ever wanted. Ever wanted. You are as much a part of this family as both nicholas and victoria. That will never change. And if victoria doesn’t like it, she can take a walk and I won’t stop her.

Adam: Well, you’re being a little quiet.

Nick: Yeah.

Adam: Gearing up? Sharpening the metal knife? Well, go ahead, let me have it. Let’s hear your take on all of this. Tide is busting laundry’s biggest myth

Nick: I’m not happy about any of it. Starting with the fact that you faked some mental decline to try and trick your children into betraying you. It says an awful lot about your transparency and trust in us.

Victor: I’ve made my reasons for that clear to you.

Nick: Doesn’t mean I have to like it or agree with it. I also don’t like that victoria feels like she needs to step away from this company because you have weaseled your way back into another position of power that you do not deserve.

Adam: Okay. Well, according to you.

Nick: No. According to everything you’ve ever done since you walked into our lives. Now, I will do what I can. I will talk to vic. I will try and convince her to stay at newman. But when it comes to you? Clearly, this is on dad. And we’re gonna do whatever he wants because if it was up to me, you wouldn’t be in this office right now or the building.

Adam: You certainly don’t disappoint.

Victor: Nicholas, you may disagree with my methods, my decisions. I respect that. But I did all that for one purpose and one purpose only. To bring this family together so that all of us can work together as a team. Do you know how powerful we will be if we all work together?

Nick: I get it, dad. But do you expect us to just live happily ever after?

Victor: That’s up to the three of you.

Adam: Can I assume that nick will replace victoria if she walks? And I’ll assume that I’ll replace nate as coo?

Victor: Would that be all right with you?

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Victor: Nicholas, you disagree?

Nick: Ah, what does it matter, dad?

Victor: Son, I still want your input.

Nick: Here’s my input. Whatever happened to adam starting at the bottom and working his way up? I guess you didn’t mean that either, huh? What a surprise. Looks like I was right about that too.

Audra: What do you mean you’re having second thoughts about our plan? What’s happened?

Kyle: I don’t think I can betray my family just to get a position of power at jabot.

Audra: It’s a position you deserve. We have been over this, kyle. I thought you saw our plan as the best and only way to achieve that.

Kyle: Yeah. I no longer want to believe that. Look, I– I guess I will have to find some other way to get there, but not by betraying my family.

Audra: But you won’t get there, kyle. How much clearer can it be? You know, your father doesn’t trust you. Billy will always stand in your way. Because of that, you were gung ho about joining tucker and me. So what’s really changed?

Kyle: I– I guess I have. Look, I– I made that decision out of frustration and anger.

Audra: And don’t forget ambition.

Kyle: Yeah, I can’t deny that. But at the end of the day, I have to be able to live with myself and I just don’t think I can if I go down this road.

Audra: Look, kyle, I know this has been hard for you. I sympathize with that. I really do.

Kyle: You’re not gonna talk me out of my decision.

Audra: Look, it’s only natural you’d have some misgivings about going against your family, who, let’s be honest, has never exactly returned that loyalty. But I promise you, all of your doubts will vanish once we take control of jabot.

Kyle: No. They won’T.

Audra: Kyle, I know much more about these things than you do, but you’ll get there. You will find how intoxicating true power is.

Kyle: No, audra. Stop. Okay? You’re not listening to me. Yes, I deserve this job. But I want it given to me by my father the right way, not by ripping the company away from him and taking control.

Audra: You’re a fraud. You know, I never expected you’d end up afraid of going after what you want because daddy might disapprove. You know, tucker warned me. You know, I guess I just had more faith in you than you actually deserved.

[ Nikki sighing ]

Nikki: Claire! Claire, where are you? Oh, god. Claire! Where are you? What is happening to me?

This is how it feels to du

more with less asthma…

…thanks to dupixent.

Dupixent is not for sudden

breathing problems.

It’s an add-on treatment

for specific types

of moderate-to-severe asthma

Nikki: Claire. What– what’s going on? Where am I? My purse. My purse. Where’s my purse? My phone?

[ Nikki panting ]

[ Nikki grunting ] Please, somebody! Somebody help me! Please!

[ Knocking continues ]

Nate: So, here we are.

Victoria: Thank you. I appreciate that you could bring yourself to sit down and talk to me.

Nate: Victoria–

Victoria: No, really. I mean it. You’re not obligated to listen to me, especially given the circumstances, so thank you for doing it.

Nate: Okay. So, what’s been going on?

[ Victoria sighing ]

Victoria: Chaos as usual.

Nate: At newman?

Victoria: Adam is the man of the hour now because of the way that he handled the situation when we all thought that dad’s mind was deteriorating.

Nate: You backed him up.

Victoria: Clearly, that’s still a sore point with you.

Nate: It was the only point. It helped victor decide he couldn’t trust me, so I was out.

Victoria: No, dad made that decision when he learned that you already practically committed him.

Nate: See, that’s what I mean. You still believe it too.

Victoria: Look, if I could go back, I would realize that adam was just saying everything that dad wanted to hear and I was blindly and stupidly following along. I should have been asking myself, “what’s in it for him?” Because there’s always, always something in it for adam, no matter what he does.

Nate: So, you do regret it.

Victoria: Yes.

Nate: Okay. Well, thank you for that. So, was adam promoted? Did victor give him my job?

Victoria: I don’t know what his role will be, but dad wants to bring him back into the fold in a very high position. I threatened to walk out the door if he did that.

Nate: Seriously?

Victoria: Yeah. I basically told him either adam goes or I do.

Nate: Come on. That would be a very foolish move, victoria. You need to go back and convince victor you were wrong.

Adam: And if victoria stays on as your right hand, does that mean that nick is gonna replace nate?

Victor: That’s one possible scenario, yeah.

Adam: So, what’s left for me? Am I gonna be nick’s assistant so I can continue paying penance for all my sins?

Victor: We’ll find something for you. It will suit your particular proclivities.

Nick: What would that be? Con man in residence?

Adam: Dad, whatever it is, I accept.

Nick: I’m surprised you don’t think you deserve something more.

Victor: That’s enough, son.

Nick: Sure. Dad, it’s just, you know, you discount the kids who have stood by you and are loyal to you and you reward one who has clearly shown all he cares about is gaining more power, no matter how that happens.

Victor: Son, that’s enough. I’m sick and tired of all the bickering among you.

Adam: It has grown quite tedious, nicholas.

Victor: Okay? No more. I will assign a job to you that is of importance. Nicholas, you will take over nate hastings’s position. And you will both do your best to convince victoria to come back to the fold, all right?

Adam: Would that be okay for you, nick?

Nick: It doesn’t look like I have any choice.

Victor: You’re damn right you don’t have a choice. I call the shots, no one else. And if any of you don’t like it, you can all walk. I’ll replace all of you. Type 2 diabetes? Discover the ozempic tri-zone.

Victor: Glad you’re taking some time to relax. Love and miss you already.

[ Loud banging on door ]

Nikki: Claire! Can you hear me? What is going on? Why are you doing this?

Claire: Well, here it is. It’s nothing like the newman ranch but it’s home.

Nikki: After traveling, tea will just hit the spot. Oh, thank you. Hey, this tea is very different. What kind is it?

Claire: I couldn’t say.

Nikki: Well, you haven’t even touched yours. I– I really don’t feel well at all.

Claire: It’s okay. Soon everything will be as it should.

Nikki: What? What do you mean?

[ Groaning ] Oh. I don’t understand. What is happening? What? What is happening? But why? Why is this happening? It doesn’t matter why. Getting out of here is what matters. Oh, breaking the glass won’t work. It’s too far a drop. Maybe there’s a way out from there. Damn it. I can’t panic. I need to stay calm.

Kyle: Thank you, audra.

Audra: For what?

Kyle: For showing me who you really are. This wasn’t about building something for the two of us. You were just using me until you got what you want.

Audra: What we want. You know, welcome to real life, kyle. You know, this is how the world works outside of the abbott cocoon. You know, at least the world I live in. I thought you understood that.

Kyle: Yeah, so everything is transactional.

Audra: You’re damn right it is.

Kyle: I feel sorry for you.

Audra: Oh, just save it. Okay? You know what your problem is, you want to have it both ways. You want all the power and prestige and everything that comes along with it. But you don’t have the guts to fight for it. You know, daddy might get mad. You might not get invited over for christmas.

Kyle: Yeah. Well, at least I have people I care about and who care about me. Who do you have, audra? Hm? Tucker? You think he gives a damn about you? Do you think he would sacrifice anything for you?

Audra: At least he’s a man who’s not afraid of going after what he wants.

Kyle: You know, when I walked in here, I didn’t know what I wanted.

Audra: Don’t try to spin this on me. You’d already made up your mind.

Kyle: No. No, I didn’T. I was conflicted. I needed to talk to somebody who I thought was on my side. Who understood my position. But you were just stringing me along until you got what you wanted. And the second I showed any doubts or any human emotion, you turned on me.

Audra: I don’t have time for cowards. Deal with it.

Kyle: Fine. I will. I am seeing things very clearly now. Sorry for wasting your time, audra. And mine.

Victoria: You know what staying at newman would mean, don’t you?

Nate: I’ve got a pretty good idea.

Victoria: Adam wins, again.

Nate: Adam wins if you leave.

[ Victoria scoffs ]

Victoria: How does that work?

Nate: You’d be giving him all the power and relinquishing your own. Adam becomes victor’s shining light. And you become the disgruntled daughter who walked out the door because she couldn’t get what she wanted.

Victoria: But nate, you of all people know that it goes a lot deeper than that.

Nate: Doesn’t matter. That’s what victor will think. And there’s not a damn thing you can do about it because you’ll be gone. And where to, by the way?

Victoria: Where to, what?

Nate: Where would you go? What would you do?

Victoria: I’m sure there are a lot of companies that would be happy to know that I’m suddenly available.

Nate: Oh, I have no doubt. But would the situation be better than what you have now? Think about the bigger picture, victoria. Adam would still report to you. Right?

Victoria: Probably. Yes.

Nate: And how long do you honestly think victor is going to last as C.E.O.? A year? Maybe two? Eventually, the stress will catch up with him and he’ll want to retire again. And if you’re not there, who will he give it to? Not nick, who always has one foot out the door.

Victoria: He’ll give it to adam.

Nate: Which may be the long con adam’s been playing all along. And you’ll just have handed him the keys to the kingdom.

Victoria: I hear what you’re saying, nate. And it’s– it’s really good advice.

Nate: But?

[ Victoria sighs ]

Victoria: But the thought of working with adam again, day in and day out makes my stomach turn.

Nate: I didn’t say it would be easy.

Victoria: Try impossible. I know that adam is gonna try to undermine me and nick whenever and wherever he can. And dad is just gonna blame us for not making the effort to get along with him.

Nate: So you’ll have to stay one step ahead of him.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] I know. It’s just the thought of it is exhausting. I don’t know if I can go through that again.

Nate: Then we’re back to the question of… where do you go from there?

Victoria: I don’t know. I’m just gonna have to figure that part out. But thank you.

Nate: Thank you?

Victoria: Thank you, very much, for letting me bend your ear when the subject of me and my family is probably the last thing that you want to be talking about.

Nate: I do care about you, victoria. I want to see you happy and successful in everything you do.

Victoria: Oh, god. That sounds like a breakup line.

Nate it’s not a line, it’s how I feel. And whatever happens with us going forward isn’t going to change that. Feelings don’t just go away.

Victoria: Good and the bad. Right? So, what about you?

Nate: What about me?

Victoria: Well, I spent the last hour talking about myself. I wanna know what’s going on with you. What are your plans?

Nate: I’ve got something in the works.

Victoria: Oh?

Nate: It’s big, actually. Got a few details to iron out and some obstacles to overcome, but… in the end, it will all be worth it.

Victoria: Well, that sounds exciting. What is it? No, look, it’s okay. You– you don’t have to tell me about it.

Nate: No, no, it isn’t you. I guess I just don’t want to jinx it, you know, by saying anything until it happens.

Victoria: I had no idea you were superstitious.

Nate: Usually I’m not.

Victoria: Come on, you can tell me. Just give me a little hint, for old-time’s sake.

Nate: All I can say is… I’m going home. My advice to you is to do the same.

Audra: Hi. I’m sorry, I handled that poorly. I don’t want this to come between us. Please call me.

Nikki: Wait a minute. It could be a trick. She drugged me before. I can’t take the chance. Maybe there’s something that will help me pick the lock. This might work. Come on. Keep it together. You’re going to be all right. Victor knows where you are. So when he doesn’t hear from you… of course, she took my phone.

Claire: Nikki, are you awake? Nikki?

Nikki: Claire? Claire. Why are you doing this to me? What is happening? Claire! Claire! I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Nick: I see you and nate have made peace. It’s nice of you to give him the benefit of the doubt after what he tried to pull with dad.

Victoria: Not now, nick.

Nick: Just an observation.

Nate: Wow. You may think you know what my intentions were, nick. But the truth is, you have no idea.

Nick: Ah, nate. I know exactly what you were hoping to get out of all this.

Adam: And more importantly, so does our father.

Nate: I want you to think about my suggestion.

Victoria: I will.

Nate: Have a good night.

Victoria: Good night.

Adam: What suggestion was he referring to?

Victoria: That was a private conversation. It’s none of your business.

Adam: Whatever you say, victoria.

Victoria: What are the two of you doing here together anyway?

Adam: We’re looking for you, actually.

Nick: We came to talk.

Victoria: About what?

Nick: Our family.

Victor: Hello, my sweetheart. It’s your lonely husband calling, you know. You’ve only been gone a day and I miss you already. I want you to have a good time. I want you to relax and enjoy your time with that assistant of yours and her aunt. Okay? I’ll take care of things around here. I promise you. Okay? I miss you a lot, my baby. I really am lonely without you. Bye.

Nikki: Claire, answer me. What do you want? Why are you doing this?

Claire: There’s water on the nightstand and more in the drawer. There’s cans of food in the armoire with a can opener. I promise you it’s all safe.

Nikki: Why should I believe anything after what you’ve done to me? You’re not gonna get away with it. My sister is expecting me.

Claire: No, she isn’T. You made it very clear you were gonna surprise her.

Nikki: No. No.

Claire: I have to get back to genoa city and make all the other arrangements.

Nikki: What other arrangements? What are you going to do?

Claire: I’m leaving now, nikki. And don’t worry, you’ll be with the rest of your family soon. So there’s no real need to panic.

Nikki: You leave my family alone. Claire. Claire, can you hear me? You stay away from my family. Claire.

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Ashley: Good morning.

Jack: Morning.

Ashley: You sound serious. What’s wrong?

Diane: Uh, I think we should show her. Ah, she– she deserves to know.

Ashley: Show me what?  Where’d this come from?

Jack: It’s an article written by a reporter friend of mine, detailing Tucker’s coverup of the actions of the PR department while he was still running McCall.

Ashley: What’re you going to do with it?

Jack: I’m preparing to give the go-ahead to have it published.

Diane: It would have a wide release immediately.

Ashley: It’s a pretty big move. Too big if you ask me.

Jack: I disagree. I’ve come over to Billy’s way of thinking. We have to lower the boom on Tucker before he takes action against us.

Adam: Oh, hey! Morning… boss. Oop, my bad. Slip of the tongue.

Nate: Hilarious.

Adam: Hmm. So how is unemployment treating you?

Nate: I take comfort in the fact that I don’t have to work with you any more. That is a signifigant silver lining.

Adam: Oh, yeah, your shirts. They’re still at the dry cleaners, so you’re going to have pick them up now that I’m not your assistant any more.

Nate: Point taken.

Adam: Hmm? Oh, no, I’m just getting started. I mean, I feel like there’s a giant weight that’s been lifted off my shoulders. I don’t know what to do with myself now that I’m not responsible for your– your emails and your schedule–

Nate: You’re annoying as hell, but I’ve got to hand it to you. You took a risk, made a play and ended up surviving.

Adam: You mean when I told my father not to trust you when you were gonna ship him off to treatment?

Nate: I had his best interest at heart.

Adam: Yeah. Keep telling yourself that.

Nate: Only I wasn’t thinking of myself. Whereas we both know you were plotting to use victor’s illness to advance your own agenda. Without question.

Adam: Well, I guess we’ll never know for sure.

Nate: You’re the same self-serving bastard you’ve always been.

Adam: Yeah and you’re the guy out in the cold. It’s chilly, isn’t it?

Nate: You know that feeling just as much as I do, if not more.

Adam: Nate, congrats. You played the game and you lost, okay? Bottom line is, I know my father better than you.

Nate: Obviously, not well enough to see through his ruse. Victor had us all completely convinced that he was losing his mind. He had everyone fooled, particularly you.

Victor: Sweetheart, are you still planning to take that trip?

Nikki: Yes. As long as you promise me to handle things with victoria.

Victor: I will take care of things, okay? But I think it’ll be good for you to get away.

Nikki: Yes, I do too. What you said about the family makes a lot of sense. I– I am so sick of all this infighting. Be good to get a bit of a break.

Victor: Sweetheart, it’s important for you to get away, okay? You really need to take a break. Besides that, how wonderful will it be to see your sister, casey? And by the way that aunt jordan, that aunt of claire’s will be happy to see you.

Nikki: Well, claire is such a terrific assistant. She has done so much for me in just a short amount of time, so I will do this for her. And I’m sure she’s gonna get a kick out of the newman jet.

Victor: And I promise that I will, you know, handle things with nicholas and victoria and adam.

Nikki: I won’t mind missing that.

Victor: Obviously, it’s a problem of my making. My responsibility to deal with it and I shall. Even if I have to force them to cooperate.

Claire: Yes, everything is set. We fly out later today. Yes, I understand. I know how important this is. Yes, of course. I’ll do whatever’s necessary.

Victor: I wanna thank you both for coming.

Nick: You called, dad. What’s up?

Victoria: Yeah. What is this about? More tricks and deceptions to see if you can try to test our loyalty?

Victor: I want to make clear to both of you where things stand in regard to the company after what happened with nate hastings.

Nick: You mean his firing?

Victoria: And the fact that you’re not actually losing your mental faculties.

Victor: I want you both to know that I have no intentions of vacating this chair. I will remain as the head of newman enterprises, okay? And I am hoping that both of you will agree to work alongside with me.

Nick: Normally, I wouldn’t be so quick to forgive you for your latest ruse, but it did prove to be effective in revealing what nate’s true intentions were.

Victor: It’s a tactic I had to use.

Nick: Okay. Well, I think it would be best if we attempt to put this behind us and move forward peacefully as a family.

Victor: I agree with you. How about you, victoria?

Victoria: It’s not gonna be so easy for me.

Victor: All right. Because of your feelings for nate hastings?

Victoria: It was difficult enough that you didn’t trust me and that you felt you couldn’t confide in me about your health, but you’re not being fair about nate, dad.

Victor: I had to uncover who the traitor was and it turned out to be nate hastings.

Victoria: I’ve spoken to nate, all right. You may not agree with his plan, but his motives are very sincere.

Victor: No, they’re not.

Nick: I didn’t trust him either, vic.

Victoria: Well, that’s not a big surprise. You’ve always had a problem with nate.

Nick: With good reason. He showed what he truly is at heart and that is an opportunist.

Victor: He made a power grab for you and for himself, at your father’s expense.

Victoria: He cares about your well-being, dad. He was looking out for you and the stability of this company.

Victor: That’s nonsense. Now, if you agreed with his plan, then why did you go along with adams?

Victoria: Because you’re my father. I didn’t want to see you sent away. It’s not fair to you. It’s not fair to any of us.

Victor: You still have feelings for nate hastings, don’t you?

Victoria: So once again, you’re questioning my judgment? You seem to have lost all faith in me, dad.

Adam: Look, I understand victor’s aim. He was trying to uncover bad intentions, which you clearly had.

Nate: When I believed your father was sick, I wanted him to receive the best care and attention possible. That’s why I pushed for the suggestion I made. You know, I wonder if things really paid off for you in all of this. Did victor offer you a promotion for convincing him of your– your goodwill?

Adam: The details are still in the works.

Nate: That sounds like an evasion.

Adam: No, I have proven myself to my father. First, as being your assistant, and now by protecting him from an enemy, and that is you.

Nate: And yet, victor hasn’t rewarded you. Which leads me to believe he doesn’t trust you any more than he now trusts me.

Adam: Nate, you and I, we’re not in the same boat.

Nate: Well, since I’m out as you so graciously put it, you can no longer be my assistant.

Adam: What a tragedy.

Nate: Which means that technically, you’re as much out of a job as I am. That’s interesting. With my fall, yours seems to have arrived as well.

Mamie: Gentlemen.

Nate: Hello, aunt mamie.

Mamie: Am I interrupting anything?

Adam: Nope. We are done here. Nice to see you, mamie. Enjoy your breakfast.

Mamie: That’s miss m to you. What was that all about?

Ashley: Were you planning on telling me about this? Or were you just going to share it with the world and then deal with the ramifications after?

Jack: Oh, as I recall, you have shared a number of things with the press without consulting me first. Like the fact that you and tucker were starting a new company together.

Ashley: That was in response to you giving diane here a major role in our family company without telling who? Oh, right, the entire family!

Jack: Ashley.

Diane: All right. All right. Just take a breath, please. I don’t think we should turn on each other right now.

Ashley: We?

Diane: Jack, I think we should listen to what ashley has to say. Her concerns are valid.

Ashley: Well, thank you, diane.

Jack: Careful.

Ashley: Look, all I’m saying, jack, if you share this with the world, if you have it published, it’s just gonna make tucker angrier than he already is. You said yourself that he knows you have incriminating information on him that’s keeping him at bay. On top of that, he’s got nothing to lose. He’s not even running mccall anymore.

Diane: And from what jack told me, uh, it sounds like tucker is not concerned what you think about him anymore either.

Ashley: Okay. Well, I’m not sure that’s true.

Jack: But you don’t have any proof that it isn’T.

Ashley: It’s a feeling, okay? Regardless, tucker doesn’t have anything going on for himself right now. He has nothing to show for himself. Do you really think a public smackdown’s gonna do that much damage?

Jack: It would do something to let him know we are not afraid of him.

Ashley: Mm-hmm. Well, you know, you are afraid and I’m pretty sure he knows that.

Jack: I hate that tucker thinks he has us all squirming here.

Ashley: Okay. If you have that published, it’s going to just tell him that you are squirming, jack. That you need to put tucker in his place and you’ll do anything to make it happen.

Jack: I’m not gonna just sit here and do nothing, ashley.

Ashley: Just give me some more time. I can handle this. Please, trust me.

Jack: I’m not convinced of that.

Ashley: I’m begging you. Give me just a little more time, all right? I’m convinced I can make some inroads with him.

Diane: You know, I think a little more time wouldn’t hurt.

Jack: Fine. You’re playing with fire. I don’t want to see you get burned.

Ashley: Okay. Thank you. And please don’t underestimate me. I am not ready to admit defeat. Goodbye.

Chloe: Oh, this is perfect.

Sally: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much for meeting with me. I know I’m taking you away from work.

Chloe: Ah, it’s really not a problem. So, I want to hear all about business. How is interior design treating you? It seems like it’s going well.

Sally: Yeah, it– it is. Uh, daniel has been on board with my vision for his new apartment. And you were a huge help in selling it to him.

Chloe: Oh, please. I mean, that– that was nothing. I saw the beautiful picture you are painting and I mean, it was genius, per usual, and I was just able to translate it further.

Sally: Well, having you by my side and bouncing off ideas…

Chloe: Finishing each other’s thoughts.

Sally: I realized that there is a really important element missing from my business.

Chloe: Oh, really? What’s that?

Sally: You. I don’t want to do this without you.

Chloe: You mean it?

Sally: Yeah, your perspective is invaluable and your taste is impeccable. And I value your opinion about everything.

Chloe: Really? I mean, I’m– I’m kind of amazing, so thank you for noticing it.

Sally: Look, okay. I– I– I recognize that you are currently working somewhere else, but would you be willing to come back and work with me?

Chloe: Um, you know, I actually just had a conversation with summer and chelsea and I told them I didn’t think it was working out.

Sally: Wow. I– I knew that you said things were bad, but I didn’t realize how bad they’d gotten.

Chloe: Well, you know, summer and I, we do not see eye to eye when it comes to selling fashion, let alone designing it. And I just got the sense that things were not going to be any smoother or get any better over there.

Sally: Well, could summer’s loss be my gain?

Chloe: I mean, if that’s your actual offer then uh, yes. A 100 times, yes. Yes.

Sally: Yay.

Chloe: Yes. Yes.

Sally and chloe: Yay.

Chloe: Oh, my god. Sally? Is everything okay?

[ Sally sighing ]

Mamie: So, what was that tension with adam newman all about? With somebody who’s supposed to be your assistant, he seems a bit full of himself.

Nate: Things exploded at newman in a way I didn’t see coming, aunt mamie.

Mamie: Wanna talk about it?

Nate: I tried to do the smart thing. For victor, for his family and for the company.

Mamie: Oh, this sounds like it may be one of those no good deed goes unpunished scenarios.

Nate: I was the victim of a ruse. Accused of being a traitor, then cast aside. It reminded me how victor usually operates.

Mamie: Are you saying that victor fired you? He is ruthless. He takes down everything in his path.

Nate: I’ve been thinking about what you said about me not being a newman. How eventually that would catch up to me at newman enterprises.

Mamie: I won’t say I told you so and I take no pleasure in saying that I was right, in this case.

Nate: You were right about a lot of things, aunt mamie. The newmans will always protect their own, even at the expense of others. I want no part of that anymore.

Mamie: Well, I’m sorry that you’ve been put through the wringer. I can’t help but see the bright side.

Nate: Bright side? Well, you better tell me what that is because I have no clue.

Mamie: You’re a free agent. You can return to chancellor-winters where you belong.

Victor: Well, at least now you can take the necessary steps.

Victoria: And what is that?

Victor: Get rid of nate hastings. You don’t need him. He’s not good for you.

Victoria: So, I see that once again, you’re determined to control my personal life as well as my professional one.

Victor: Let me be very frank with you. Almost hurts me to say this. But your choice in men has always been most questionable to me. Billy boy abbott. J.T. Hellstrom. Ashland locke. Now, nate hastings?

Victoria: If my personal relationships are going to be a problem for you, then maybe we shouldn’t be discussing my role–

Victor: That’s nonsense. You belong with this company, with this family. Get rid of nate hastings and you’ll be able to focus on what is important. Son, are you with us?

Nick: Absolutely, dad. I’m back. I’m all in.

Victor: I’m glad to hear that. How about you? Health insuran

Diane: Look, I hope you’re not angry with me for letting ashley in on our plans to expose tucker.

Jack: No. No, I’m not angry at you. You’re right. We– we should tell her. Just I hate that she’s being so stubborn about this.

Diane: Well, maybe ashley’s right about tucker’s mindset. And jack, we haven’t had any luck disarming tucker. Maybe ashley’s our best bet.

Jack: I feel like I’m sending my sister back to the lion’s den. I don’t want her anywhere near this man.

Diane: Well, that’s her choice. And if ashley’s concerned about tucker’s reaction to us releasing the damning information, then maybe we should listen to her.

Jack: You really think so?

Diane: I know you’re surprised that I see her side in this, but ashley thinks she knows tucker better than anyone, so let’s just do things her way. Just give her some leeway to see what she can get out of tucker.

[ Jack groaning ] All right. Well, what else? What are you not saying? What’s bothering you?

Jack: There is another reason I want ashley to stay as far away from this man as possible.

Diane: Well, if you’re worried about tucker manipulating her, I don’t think you need to be. Ashley can take care of herself.

Jack: No, that’s not it. Ashley is not as in control of her feelings for tucker as she claims. I am worried that she will fall for him all over again.

Ashley: You’re hugging the life out of me.

Abby: I need proof. I need proof that you’re actually here. That you’re home. I haven’t seen you much since you’ve come back.

Ashley: Well, that’s not my fault. You’re the one who’s so busy getting everything ready for the holidays.

Abby: Well, I’m just relieved that you’re here. I’ve been really worried about you.

Ashley: You’re always worried about me. I’m fine. I promise. I’m so happy to be here with you.

Abby: Well, I am happy that you’re here through the holidays because I’m very excited about thanksgiving.

Ashley: Yeah, me too.

Abby: So, how are you really? I mean, how does it feel to be back? Have you had any uncomfortable encounters with tucker? I mean, hopefully, he’s so upset that he’s keeping his distance.

Ashley: I’m not gonna lie to you. I did reach out to him. Just so I could find out what he’s planning.

Abby: I don’t like that. I don’t like the sound of that at all. Mom, you need to stay away from tucker and all of his chaos. And god forbid you upset him even more.

Ashley: I don’t think that’s even possible.

Abby: Then, mom, just stay away from him. Look, maybe he has shifted his focus from the abbotts and jabot. Just let him go.

Ashley: What do you mean he’s shifted his focus?

Abby: Devon and lily seem to think that he is behind mamie’s return to town and her investment in chancellor-winters.

Ashley: What? Are you saying that tucker and mamie are working together?

Abby: I don’t know. I mean, they think that he has some sort of plan, they just don’t know what the plan is yet.

Ashley: Okay. That makes sense because when– when tucker and I were together, his dream was to get chancellor-winters for devon and then jabot for me.

Abby: Oh, a trio of love and family.

Ashley: Well, yeah, that’s pretty much what he wanted it to be actually. So, maybe it could be the same agenda, but with a different planned outcome.

Abby: But what would tucker have to gain from disrupting his son’s company?

Ashley: Well, he could still get chancellor-winters for devon. Find a way to oust jill and I know that mamie would love that. And maybe he could still try to get revenge on jabot. I don’t know.

Abby: Or maybe he’s just forgotten about his revenge against the abbotts and jabot and maybe he really does want to focus on his family.

Ashley: Mm. Wouldn’t that be nice? Nothing is ever that simple with tucker.

Victoria: I am still furious with you, dad. For the games that you played with all of us.

Victor: You have made that amply clear.

Victoria: I’m really not interested in arguing about this anymore. So, despite your actions and my frustration, I can’t turn my back on newman enterprises. I refuse to step aside. This company is strong and a large part of that is due to my input and to my leadership.

Nick: I absolutely agree with that.

Victor: So do I.

Victoria: I’m not gonna watch all my hard fought efforts go to waste.

Victor: I’m glad you’ve come around.

Victoria: Dad, you have to know that this doesn’t make everything all right between us. You have to understand that you’re gonna have to work very hard to earn my trust back.

Victor: And that, my darling, goes both ways, okay? Remember that. Now, happy to realize that you’re savvy enough to know that this is where you belong.

Victoria: I do. But there is one caveat to my decision. If adam is given a power role in this company again, you can count me out.

Nikki: Oh, good, you’re here. Are you ready?

Claire: Packed and set.

Nikki: Oh, have you talked to your aunt? How’s she getting along with that broken arm?

Claire: Ah, it’s difficult. She doesn’t like anything to slow her down.

Nikki: Well, no, I can’t blame her, but I am looking forward to meeting the woman who raised such an amazing person.

Claire: Aunt jordan is gonna be so grateful.

Nikki: Now, you are gonna have to arrange for your own flight back to genoa city because once I leave blue lake, I’m going straight to napa to see my sister.

Claire: Of course, that won’t be a problem.

Nikki: Well, we will leave as soon as I finish up a few things here. And I want to change out of my work clothes. We’re not going on a business trip, so why not travel in comfort?

Claire: Thank you again, nikki. My aunt is just gonna be so thrilled.

Nikki: I’m so glad. I have a few phone calls to make. Um, please finish up whatever you’re working on and then we’re off.

Claire: Sounds good. Thank you again.

Nikki: Uh-huh. (Vo) red lobster’s new lobster & shrimp celebration

Nick: I’m with vic. I don’t think adam should be given any kind of leadership role.

Victor: Listen carefully. I’m going to say to you what I told adam. He will remain at newman enterprises and he will be given an important position.

Victoria: Even though he doesn’t deserve it?

Victor: I am sick and tired of the animosity between the three of you. You are siblings for god’s sake.

Nick: Adam has never shown any brotherly loyalty, ever.

Victor: Son, this is not up for debate. I’m fed up with the conflict between the three of you. I will do everything in my power to solve it. Count on it.

Chloe: What was that?

Sally: What was what?

Chloe: That look between you and adam? I saw that exchange and then I saw you go all dazed and confused.

Sally: No, I didn’T.

Chloe: Yes, you did. It was like you got all flustered, but not in a bad way. I saw that look and it wasn’t even anger, it wasn’t even friction. In fact, I even think I saw him smile.

Sally: Okay. It’s not that big of a deal. It was just a glance.

Chloe: No, it wasn’T. It was a deep, loaded look with a lot of emotion and history. Oh, no, no, no. Please tell me that things aren’t starting up again between you and adam?

Sally: No, absolutely not.

Chloe: Are you sure?

Sally: Chloe, please.

Chloe: I hope you mean it, that it’s not because you know, that would be a very bad idea, right?

Sally: Yes, I know. You do not like adam. You have made that very clear.

Chloe: You’ve just separated from nick. Your emotions are raw. You are likely overwhelmed and confused.

Sally: All true.

Chloe: It’s adam. Adam equals bad.

Sally: Yeah, look. Seriously, it’s– it’s not that big of a deal, okay? I– I just spaced for a second. It’s just, really, it’s nothing to worry about.

Chloe: Okay.

Sally: Okay. So, let’s talk about more important things like when are you coming back to work with me?

Chloe: Okay, I– you know what? I just need to go finalize my departure with marchetti. Um, so maybe when we’re done here, I’ll head over and get everything sorted.

Sally: Great. Then we will work out a deal for you with sally spectra designs.

Chloe: I can’t wait. Things are finally looking up.

Sally: I could not agree more.

Nate: My return to chancellor-winters is nowhere near guaranteed. But I did have a promising encounter with devon yesterday.

Nate: My return to chancellor-winters is nowhere near guaranteed. But I did have a promising encounter with devon yesterday.

Mamie: Oh, I’m so happy to hear that.

Nate: Devon appears poised to give me another chance.

Mamie: Then, we should seize the moment.

Nate: Okay. Well, go ahead because I’m sure you have an idea of how to do that.

Mamie: Well, I think our next step is that the four of us should sit down together as a family. You, me, lily, and devon. And then, we can discuss the possibility of your returning to chancellor-winters.

Nate: That may be tricky. Lily and devon are sharp. They’re gonna wonder why I’m leaving newman. Ask a lot of questions.

Mamie: Well, then you’ll just attest that you did the right thing and got bamboozled by victor. And nobody who knows him is gonna be surprised by that.

Nate: Still, I’m not sure they will accept my explanation.

Mamie: Don’t sell yourself short. This is our chance. Oh, I’m feeling really good about this.

Ashley: I have to admit that tucker does have a more valid interest in chancellor-winters. More than jabot.

Abby: Because of katherine?

Ashley: Yeah. I mean, he’s her son. And I can’t tell you how many times he said he never understood why jill had control of that company.

Abby: Well, katherine had to have her reasons for not leaving the company to tucker. And then for leaving dad in charge.

Ashley: Then, jill got her grubby little hands on it.

Abby: I didn’t realize you disliked jill so much.

Ashley: Yes, you did. She’s jill. You know how annoying she is. Of course, she’s billy’s mother, so I tried, but I never really appreciated her relationship with your grandfather.

Abby: Mom, I’m not trying to disregard your feelings, but just because you don’t like jill doesn’t mean she should have her company taken from her.

Ashley: Maybe it never should have been her company.

Abby: Mom.

Ashley: I’m just saying if tucker isn’t focused on getting chancellor-winters, then maybe he should be. It makes more sense than jabot.

Abby: Whoa. I do not like the sound of that, because that route leads to devon and whatever move he makes, that could really affect devon.

Ashley: No, listen, tucker would never do anything to hurt him.

Abby: This whole thing with mamie, I mean, it already is hurting devon. I mean, he’s very upset by all of this and he really doesn’t trust anyone’s motives.

Ashley: Yeah. Maybe nothing will happen. Maybe tucker will just focus on chancellor-winters and it’ll keep jabot out of his sights.

Abby: Or maybe his plan is already in motion. And mamie coming back to town and her investment in the company is all a part of that plan.

Ashley: You know what? I still can’t believe this about mamie. I can’t believe she’s doing this. Not unless she has another agenda of her own.

Abby: Even if tucker has his sights set on chancellor-winters, I’m starting to think that maybe he still wants revenge on you and the abbotts.

Ashley: You’re worrying about me again, aren’t you?

Abby: I just think you need to stay as far away from tucker as possible. I’m worried that you’re getting in deep with this guy again and it terrifies me.

Ashley: Okay. Stop, stop, stop. I promise you, I will never not be in control with tucker again. Inez, let me ask you, you’re using head and shoulders, right? Only when I see flakes. Then I switch back to my regular shampoo. You should use it every wash, otherwise the flakes will come back. Tiny troy: He’s right, you know. Is that tiny troy? The ingredients in head and shoulders keep the microbes that cause flakes at bay. Microbes, really? They’re always on your scalp… little rascals… but good news, there’s no itchiness, dryness or flakes down here! I love tiny troy. And his tiny gorgeous hair. He’s the best. – Make every wash count!

– Little help please. Feeling sluggish or weighed down? Could be a sign you’re not getting enough daily fiber. Metamucil capsules can help. Psyllium fiber gels to trap and remove the waste that weighs you down. Promoting digestive health, for a better you. Metamucil capsules an easy way to get more daily fiber.

Claire: Well, here it is. It’s nothing like the newman ranch, but it’s home.

Nikki: Oh, my gosh. I think it’s just charming.

Claire: I thought you would.

Nikki: Huh. So, um, where is your great aunt?

Claire: I’d say she’s probably out sitting in her chair by the water.

Nikki: Ah.

Claire: Oh, wait. It’s from aunt jordan. “At the doctor’S. Tina next door, gave me a ride. Will be home soon. Enjoy a spot of tea while you wait.”

Nikki: Oh, sweet.

Claire: That is aunt jordan for you. She loves her tea.

Nikki: As do I. After traveling, tea will just hit the spot.

Claire: Please sit down. Let me get you some.

Nikki: Thank you. Oh, thank you.

Claire: I doubt my great-aunt will be very long.

Nikki: Well, it’s nice that she has neighbors to help her out.

Claire: Especially after her fall. She scares me to death sometimes, but she’ll never leave this place. It means too much to her.

Nikki: Well, I can see why. It’s a beautiful drive out here. All the open spaces and the scenery.

Claire: Yeah. It was a great place to grow up. Plenty of space to roam as long as I had my bear bell.

Nikki: Mm. Very important.

Claire: Yes. And, uh, plenty of friends from the houses nearby to run around with. And with the lake just outside, there’s always tons of stuff to do.

Nikki: Hm. Now, what kind of lake activities did you do?

Claire: Everything. Fishing, paddle boarding, swimming, kayaking. My aunt had to practically drag me away every night.

Nikki: I can imagine. You sounded, uh, pretty adventurous back in those days. So, tell me, did you ever get in any trouble out there?

Claire: I’ll never tell.

Nikki: Oh, good answer.

[ Both chuckling ]

Claire: Growing up here, uh, the neighborhood had its own version of a block party. Every house would have food and some sort of game to play.

Nikki: Oh, wow. That sounds like fun.

Claire: It was. One year, I was really into trying things in the kitchen at the time and I decided to make a dish, experimenting with chili pepper and hot sauce.

Nikki: Uh-oh.

Claire: It was terrible.

Nikki: I can only imagine.

Claire: I was single-handedly responsible for burning the mouths of each and every neighbor.

Nikki: Oh, my goodness.

Claire: Yeah. And for years, no one would even glance at anything else I made.

Nikki: Well, no, they were smart.

Claire: They were terrified.

Nikki: So, um, what did your aunt think about that?

Claire: She was not pleased. She instructed me to immediately hang up my apron and throw out all my spices.

[ Nikki laughing ]

Nikki: Oh, my goodness. Hey, this tea is very different. What kind is it?

Claire: I couldn’t say.

Nikki: Oh, you haven’t even touched yours?

Claire: Little secret. Not much of a tea drinker.

Nikki: Oh.

Claire: It is more aunt jordan’s thing.

Nikki: Ah. A woman after my own heart.

Claire: For sure.

Nikki: Oh, my.

Claire: What is it?

Nikki: I don’t know. I– I guess maybe the flight made me lightheaded.

Claire: Really? It was such a short trip.

Nikki: I– I– I really don’t feel well all of a sudden.

Claire: Would you like a water bottle?

Nikki: Yes. Yes. Water, please. Mm. Oh, my god. I– I am so sorry.

Claire: Don’t be.

Nikki: Oh. Uh, is something wrong?

Claire: Not at all.

Nikki: I– I– I really don’t feel well at all.

Claire: It’s okay. Soon, everything will be as it should.

Nikki: What? What– what do you mean? Mm. Oh! I don’t understand. What is happening? What? What is happening?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Sharon: Hi, elena. How’s chance? That’s good news. Oh, thank you so much for the update. Yes, I plan on coming to see him tomorrow morning. Okay. Well, maybe I’ll see you then. Thank you again so much, elena. I know that chance is in good hands. Night.

Nick: Sharon.

Sharon: Oh, hi, nick.

Nick: What’s up? What’s going on with chance?

Sharon: Chance was shot tonight working a case.

Nick: How bad is it?

Sharon: He’s going to be all right. No vital organs or anything like that. The bullet went right through.

Nick: Thank god. I mean, it’s still terrible.

Sharon: Yeah. He was just made chief. This promotion was supposed to keep him out of the line of fire. So much for spending more time behind a desk and spending less time out in the field with criminals. This was supposed to keep him safe. Anyway, that was elena. She said that chance is awake and that he’s stable. It was so scary getting that call, nick.

Nick: I can imagine.

Sharon: I’m surprised this wasn’t on the news.

Nick: You know, it may have been. I– I haven’t been listening or watching. I’ve been dealing with some family stuff.

Sharon oh, so you haven’t talked to summer then?

Nick: Summer? Uh, no. Why?

Sharon: Well, she was at the hospital.

Nick: Okay. Uh, yeah, I know, um, she and chance have been getting friendlier. Um, I’m surprised she went to the hospital though. It must have been very concerning and scary.

Sharon: Of course. So, what’s going on with your family?

Nick: Dad finally admitted to everyone what I had already figured out. That his confusion or whatever it is you want to call it was just an act.

Sharon: So he was looking for a traitor?

Nick: He definitely found one.

Sharon: And who walked into the trap? Or do I already know?

Nikki: Oh, victoria, what is it?

Victoria: Are you serious?

Nikki: What I am is exhausted.

Victoria: Oh, yeah. I– I can imagine how draining it must have been keeping such an ugly secret from all of us.

Nikki: Okay. You know, it’s late. I want to send claire home. I want to convince your father to do the same.

Victoria: Yeah. I’ll bet– I’ll bet that dad has a lot to celebrate. I bet he’s feeling really on top of his game right now after deceiving all of us. Of course not you. No, not you.

Nikki: I know you are upset. We have to talk about this tomorrow.

Victoria: Why? What will it matter? What will it change? Dad exploited our concerns and our fears for what? A trap? That he suspected that one of us would fall into? I mean, does he have that little of faith in me? And you, you just let him do it.

Nikki: Let me tell you this. It’s not like your father consulted with me before beginning this charade. And then when he finally did tell me, I let him know how much I disagreed with it.

Victoria: Oh, okay. And yet– and yet you said nothing. You did nothing. Mom, how could you do that? How could you let dad trick us like that? Look, I know you don’t trust adam. I get it. And I know– I know you don’t trust nate.

Nikki: Well, I can’t believe you still do after what we just heard.

Victoria: I’ve accepted his explanation.

Nikki: He practically had your father already put away.

Victoria: Okay, mom. I am not gonna get into defending nate with you. I’m not gonna do it. This is about what you did to me. Did you really think that not telling me was a good idea?

Nikki: I didn’T.

Victoria: But you went along with dad anyway. I was worried sick about what seemed to be happening to dad!

Nikki: Your father insisted that you not know the truth until it was the right time. And he wanted to be the one to tell you.

Victoria: Okay. Oh, yeah, yeah. And you always do what dad tells you to do. I know that’s not true, mom. I couldn’t sleep at night. I was worried about him. I thought I was going to lose my father. How could you do that to me?

[ Adam sighing ]

Victor: Yes, son?

Adam: You never gave me an answer before.

Victor: And answer to what?

Adam: Nate’s out. You want nick to come back and work for newman enterprises, so where does that leave me?

Victor: You know, quite frankly, I haven’t decided yet.

Adam: I see. Any timetable on when you will?

Victor: Um, son, I gotta be honest with you. I suspected it would be you who would take advantage of my mental decline.

Adam: You mean your pretend mental decline? Because I’m just that predictable?

Victor: Well, I’m not gonna argue that point, but having said that, I’m very happy that you did not betray me.

Adam: I am happy too, pop.

Victor: In fact, son, you protected me. I appreciate that.

Adam: Well, I’m grateful that you recognize that.

Victor: Yep.

Adam: Now, since you have been straight with me and I appreciate that, I’m gonna be straight with you too.

Victor: You know that I appreciate people being honest with me.

Adam: Well, you’re gonna get it. Brutal honesty.

Victor: Oh, yeah? Then bring it on.

Adam: You know, I told you that I wanted to start at newman from the bottom and I wanted to work my way up.

Victor: You did. Uh-huh.

Adam: It was all a lie. From the very beginning, okay? I was angry and I was hurt. You dismissed me from the joint venture with nick and sharon and that hurts. That hurt a lot.

Victor: So, you wanted revenge?

Adam: Yes.

Victor: Ah.

Adam: I thought that I would talk my way back into newman enterprises and I would show you how contrite I was. I would start at any low-level job and I would talk my way back into the family company. And once I was in there, I was going to find any way to tear it apart.

Victor: So, now you know why I set a trap, right?

Adam: So, you knew?

Victor: Let’s say I had my suspicions.

Adam: Well, then I wasn’t as successful as I thought. I wanted to lull you into believing that my intentions were real. And then when the opportunity presented itself, to strike you or victoria, I would be in the perfect position to do that.

Victor: Mm-hmm. Right.

Adam: You know, we had those conversations about what you wanted for me, what you hoped that I would become.

Victor: All of that is true.

Adam: I know. And then I started to think about how I’d hurt you over the years and how many times that I’ve let you down. I mean, how many times have we done this, you and I? A truce? And then something almost like a father and son.

Victor: Almost.

Adam: Yeah. Because I wanted to be a member of this family. I wanted to truly fit in. To be a part of this company. This– this amazing entity that you have built. But I fought it. And instead, I held on to anger and that hurt and that rage. Until you started exhibiting some extremely disturbing behavior. And it all changed.

Nikki: Victoria, I deeply regret keeping your father’s secret. I didn’t want to, but he was adamant. You know how he gets when he digs his heels in.

Victoria: You didn’t have to listen to him.

Nikki: Oh, my god. How many times do I have to tell you I didn’t want to go along with this? But he convinced me that if you knew the truth, you would tell nate everything.

Victoria: Oh, so it was all about nate?

Nikki: And in some way, I understood his logic. That’s the only reason I kept it from you.

Victoria: Because you despise nate.

Nikki: I do not despise him. I don’t trust him. I never have. And now, you see why? So, I hope your eyes have been opened. You understand that you can never trust nate, right?

Nick: It wasn’t adam. Though that makes sense. I thought if anyone was going to betray my dad, it would be my brother.

Sharon: Well, who then?

Nick: Nate’s the traitor.

Sharon: Nate? Really? He’s a doctor. He wouldn’t think of using victor’s mental decline against him?

Nick: He’s not a doctor anymore, sharon. He is a businessman and he has learned to be very, very ruthless.

Sharon: I can’t believe this.

Nick: I can. I’ve been saying it from the beginning, that he couldn’t be trusted. He staged a coup in his own family’s company. Why in the hell would anyone think that he wouldn’t try the same thing at newman?

Sharon: Why indeed? What was he after?

Nick: To get my dad out of the way so vic could be back in charge and then nate could be her second in command.

Sharon: Get victor out of the way how?

Nick: Ship him off to some clinic so they could test him to find out what was wrong with him. And I’m sure nate could have convinced the doctors to stretch out the treatment and diagnosis.

Sharon: Well, maybe nate thought that was the best course of action, given what he believed was wrong.

Nick: It’s the best course of action for nate. Dad could have been treated and diagnosed at home.

Sharon: This is just so outrageous.

Nick: Yeah, it is. But thank god, dad finally fired nate.

Sharon: Hm. Well, it sounds like things are really a mess over at newman. Maybe even more so than before.

Nick: Yeah, you could say that.

Sharon: So, what’s victor’s plan to clean it up? What happens next?

Nick: I need to talk to you about that. I’m not just accomplished. I am accomplishing. So I’m doing all I can to help lower my risk of breaking a bone.

For postmenopausal women

with osteoporosis

at high risk for fracture

taking calcium and vitamin

d may not be enough.

Adding prolia is proven

to help strengthen bones

and reduce spine fracture

risk by 68%

with 1 shot every 6 months.

Do not take prolia

if you have low blood calcium,

are pregnant,

are allergic to it,

or take xgeva.

Serious allergic reactions

like low blood pressure,

trouble breathing,

throat tightness, face,

lip or tongue swelling,

rash, itching

or hives have happened.

Tell your doctor about

dental problems

as severe jaw bone problems

may happen with prolia,

or about pain in your hip,

groin, or thigh,

as unusual thigh bone

fractures have occurred.

Talk to your doctor

before stopping, skipping,

or delaying prolia,

as spine and other fractures

have occurred.

Serious side effects,

like low blood calcium,

serious infections which

could need hospitalization,

skin problems,

and severe bone, joint,

or muscle pain have occurred. I have so much more to accomplish.

Talk to your doctor

about prolia. Oh, hello! Hi! Do you know that every load of laundry could be worth as much as $300? Really? And your clothes just keep getting more damaged the more times you wash them.

Downy protects fibers,

doing more than

detergent alone. See? This one looks brand new. Saves me money? I’

Nick: Now that nate’s out, my dad wants me to return to newman.

Sharon: Well, that’s to be expected. He wants you in that executive suite. He always has.

Nick: Yeah.

Sharon: Are you considering it?

Nick: I mean, right now, vic is not in the state of mind to make any objective or rational decisions.

Sharon: That’s understandable.

Nick: And while adam did the unexpected thing and did not betray our father, you think that was a deliberate choice or did he just get lucky?

Sharon: I guess I believe, despite everything, that adam has always loved her father.

Nick: Yeah, maybe. Right now, dad thinks he can trust adam, but I know for a fact, adam’s gonna do something to try and turn this into his advantage.

Sharon: So, what are you really trying to tell me, nick?

Nick: Just my dad doesn’t seem to have any allies right now, except for my mom.

Sharon: So, you’re considering a return to newman enterprises, aren’t you?

Victoria: I don’t want to talk about nate anymore.

Nikki: Honey, you are going to have to face it. Nate came to this company after betraying his own family.

Victoria: I know and dad trusted him, even after he knew what nate did to devon and lily. So, what has changed? Why is dad always, without question, always right?

Nikki: Because nate had an agenda.

Victoria: Everyone we know has an agenda, mom.

Nikki: Well, honey, you’re not involved with everyone, you’re involved with nate. So, where do things stand now?

Claire: I’m so sorry to interrupt, nikki. I just– I got a call and it’s kind of an emergency.

Victoria: I’ll leave you two to whatever it is.

Nikki: Victoria, please don’t do anything rash.

Victoria: I don’t know what I’m gonna do.

Claire: I’m so sorry. It sounded like you were in the middle of something important.

Nikki: No, no, no, it’ll work itself out. So, what has you so upset? Who called? What’s the emergency?

Victor: So everything changed you say. In what way?

Adam: When I– when I thought that you were losing your grasp on reality, my plan to destroy everything newman went out the window. Okay? None of it mattered. Couldn’t even think about it. The only thing that I could think about was trying to protect you. And hopefully, helping you get better. You know, I haven’t– I haven’t had the time with you that nicholas and victoria have had. So, I– I wasn’t ready to lose you. Even if the rest of our days were destined to butt heads and fight.

Victor: So, are you upset now that I set a trap for everyone?

Adam: I should be. I bet victoria is. But no, I actually think it was a masterful move.

Victor: Hm.

Adam: And it was warranted.

Victor: Yeah.

Adam: I mean, let’s be honest. Uh, I think nikki’s in the clear, probably nick. But me, victoria, and nate, we all had reasons to exploit your illness for personal gain.

Victor: Explain that.

Adam: Well, you know how victoria feels about you stepping back in as ceo, demoting her. And she’s your daughter, she’s ruthless. She’s ambitious. She’s willing to go to any lengths to get what she wants, just like you. Even if you won’t to accept that kind of behavior from anybody else. And nate, I don’t need to explain to you what his agenda is or reasons. You just outed him.

Victor: Yep. Indeed.

Adam: I mean, how ambitious can that guy be? You just cut off his path the top. He envisioned himself being king to my sister’s queen. If he could just get her to sit in that big chair, he would ascend right along with her.

Victor: You think like your father.

Adam: But I understand why you don’t find me trustworthy. So, now that we’ve been honest with each other, let me get back to my original question. What happens to me now? My mom’s alzheimer’s never

Victor: So tell me, do you think it’s still a good idea for you to work your way up from the bottom at newman?

Adam: No, it was– it was bogus, remember? I don’t think that I need to do that.

Victor: And why not?

Adam: I’ve had several executive positions here. Hell, I’ve run this company. I– I don’t think there’s anything that I could learn from assisting somebody who has a fraction of the business experience that I do, okay? It was a very clever ruse. And if I hadn’t thought you were sick, I might still be playing it out.

Victor: Really?

Adam: Look, the point is I’m not playing it out. And I was the one with a smart solution to your problem. So, the way that I see it, I think at the very least, I deserve nate’s position.

Victor: Really.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Victor: Problem is if victoria remains number two, then if you took over nate’s position, that would cause a lot of friction. And I don’t want that around me.

Adam: So, what are you saying?

Victor: You and victoria need to work out your differences.

Adam: Well, that’s– that’s– that’s easy enough. What about nick?

Victor: Well, I need to know where nicholas stands. But none of this is either or.

Adam: So, I– I’m always gonna be third in line to the throne?

Victor: What do you think?

Adam: Oh man, does it– does it really matter what I think? Nicholas and victoria will always outrank me, no matter how many times I prove myself to you.

Sharon: You are, aren’t you? You’re considering going back to newman enterprises? Of course, you are. You always look out for your family. You’re always ready to step in as savior at a moment’s notice.

Nick: I’m also very quick to call them out.

Sharon: I know.

Nick: Yes, I’m fast to protect my family, but sharon, I really feel like that is my job.

Sharon: Hey, it wasn’t a criticism. I’ve known you a long time. This is a part of who you are. You always look out for the people you love.

Nick: And they need looking after. And protecting them from themselves, it is a full-time job.

Sharon: I know it is. Sometimes, there’s no room for anything else.

Nick: Well, I haven’t decided, you know, what I’m gonna do yet, but I wanted to talk about it with you.

Sharon: With me?

Nick: Yeah, I made a commitment to you, sharon. I don’t want to leave you in the lurch.

Sharon: Well, kirsten or whatever we end up calling it is about ready for its relaunch. There’s a lot of cohesiveness in the structure, a solid foundation for moving forward. I’m– I’m good.

Nick: I know you are. You’ve taken this monster’s company, you’ve whipped it in the shape. There’s no chance it doesn’t become a huge success.

Sharon: You were a big part of getting kirsten where it is today. And I’ve really loved working with you. And I would like to keep going as partners, but if I had to do it on my own, I can.

Nick: I know you can.

Sharon: You know what? You need to do what’s best for you and your family. Really. And I’m still gonna come to you as a sounding board or get some advice. Either way.

Nick: Well, you better. I just want you to know, I really appreciate your support. It means the world to me.

Sharon: Of course.

[ Nick sighing ]

Nick: God help me. I really feel that newman and my father, they need me right now.

Sharon: Then do what you have to do.

Nikki: Here we are.

Claire: Thank you. My aunt fell at her lake house and broke her arm.

Nikki: Oh, no, I’m so sorry to hear that. Uh, does she live alone?

Claire: She does. There’s a housekeeper who comes once a week, but nobody living there full time to look out for her.

Nikki: Well, that’s no good. Listen, you need to go take care of her.

Claire: Just for a few days. I’ll check on her, make sure she’s getting along okay.

Nikki: Of course, I understand. Take all the time you need.

Claire: That’s so generous of you nikki. Thanks. And of course, I’ll be available by phone and text, and email if you need anything.

Nikki: Now, you just focus on taking care of your aunt. I know how important she is to you.

Claire: She’s everything to me. And, uh, well… you need to go take care of her.

Claire: Just for a few days. I’ll check on her, make sure she’s getting along okay.

Nikki: Of course, I understand. Take all the time you need.

Claire: That’s so generous of you nikki. Thanks. And of course, I’ll be available by phone and text, and email if you need anything.

Nikki: Now, you just focus on taking care of your aunt. I know how important she is to you.

Claire: She’s everything to me. And, uh, well…

Nikki: What? What is it?

Claire: There’s something else I should probably tell you about her.

Claire: I’m not sure how you’ll react and it’s a little embarrassing. Aunt jordan is your biggest fan.

Nikki: What?

Claire: Ever since I came to work here and told her about you, she cannot stop talking about how amazing you are. All the things that you’ve accomplished. How impressive it is. It’s actually, it’s kind of adorable, really.

Nikki: Well, you weren’t kidding about it being embarrassing for me.

Claire: Take the compliment. You’ve done a lot of great things in business and philanthropy. Aunt jordan has no doubt that having you as a boss is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

Nikki: Well, that’s very flattering.

Claire: She was actually coming here, coming to visit me this weekend. Hoping to meet you. Thank you for hiring me.

Nikki: Well, I hardly need a thank you for a smart hire.

Claire: I tried to tell her that, but she’s determined. But now, of course, with a broken arm.

Nikki: Well, another time. I’m not gonna be here this weekend anyway.

Claire: I don’t remember anything on your calendar.

Nikki: No, it’s not on my calendar. I’m going to visit my sister, casey. We haven’t seen each other in ages and she’s gonna be in napa in northern california on a conference, so I was gonna surprise her.

Claire: That’s so sweet. I’m sure your sister will be thrilled by the surprise.

Nikki: In fact. Well, here– here’s an idea. Oregon is right on the way. I mean, it’s practically a neighbor. Why don’t I give you a ride on the newman jet?

Claire: I couldn’t ask you to do that.

Nikki: Well, you’re not asking, I’m offering and I hope you accept. In fact, I won’t take no for an answer.

Claire: Uh, that is so nice. Thank you. I know this is terrible, especially after that wonderfully generous gesture, but I’m afraid I have another favor to ask.

Adam: Nick.

Nick: Adam. What are you? The welcoming committee or dad’s receptionist? Is that a step up from assistant?

Adam: You know that was quite a summit earlier. A lot of twists, a lot of turns.

Nick: And surprisingly, you weren’t the traitor that was outed by dad.

Adam: Well, I doubt you’re unhappy that nate is out of the company.

Nick: No, not at all. Never trusted the guy.

Adam: Well, I’m not naive enough to think that you trust me anymore now. Even though dad is impressed with my loyalty.

Nick: Adam, I’m actually relieved you didn’t try and use dad’s illness against him like nate clearly intended to. But, you could have. Everyone expected it, including dad. That says a lot about who you are and how you deal with things.

Adam: So, even if I defied expectations, it doesn’t matter. Is– is that what you’re saying?

Nick: Your behavior seems decent right now. But that can change. We both know that. On a dime. So, yeah, my guard is up when it comes to you. And it probably always will be. Hi. I use febreze fade defy plug.And I use this. Febreze has a microchip to control scent release so it smells first-day fresh for 50 days.

Victoria: Hi. Um, may I have a cabernet, please? Thank you. I want to find a way to make things up to you. And I will.

Nate: I know you mean that now.

Victoria: No, nate, I’m not just saying it to smooth things over. I really do mean it. I want to fight for us.

Nate: So, what happens when another issue comes up that puts me at odds with your family? Your parents don’t trust me. Nick never did. And adam…

Victoria: I don’t care what adam thinks.

Nate: But you did earlier today. You know, when you told me that you were raised to protect your family at all costs, I already knew that. My aunt mamie warned me that no matter what I did or how hard I worked, I would always be an outsider to the newmans. So maybe what this is, is a– is a wake-up call for me to work on reconnecting with my family. Put that above everything else. But, whatever the answer is, I’m gonna need some time to find it.

Victoria: Thank you.

Adam: Yeah, yeah. You don’t trust me. I get it. Because when you and victoria screw up, there have to be extenuating circumstances. You’re forced into it. But when I screw up, it’s inevitable. Just part of a dark and wicked soul. I got it.

Nick: Let’s just stop talking to each other right now.

Adam: That sounds great. Dad’s not in there by the way. You just missed him, he left for the day.

Nick: Okay, adam, then I’ll call him later.

Adam: Are you anxious to talk to him about something?

Nick: Why would you ask that?

Adam: Because he asked you to come back to the company. So, are you here to tell him that you’re gonna stick with sharon and kirsten? Or are you gonna give him an early christmas present? Tell him you’re coming back to newman.

Nick: Well, adam, that is between me and dad. I prefer to keep you guessing about my plans.

Claire: I know this is a lot to ask, especially after you’re already putting yourself out for me. But do you think there’s a chance when you drop me off in blue lake, that you could stop in and meet my aunt? Maybe have a cup of tea?

Nikki: Oh. Um, well… that would mean a lot to you, wouldn’t it?

Claire: And to my aunt.

Nikki: I suppose I could, but it would have to be for just a little bit because I only have a short time to be with my sister and I have to make the most of that.

Claire: Absolutely. Yes. And thank you again for being so understanding about me even having to go.

Nikki: Family first. I’ll send you the information on the flight.

Claire: And, thank you again. My aunt jordan is absolutely right. Coming to work for you is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

Nick: You don’t look very happy with that phone. Can I get a beer, please? Thank you.

Victoria: I thought you went home to christian.

Nick: Yeah, I did. Uh, you know, checked on him, did his homework with him and then made him brush his teeth and go off to bed. The nanny will take it from there. So, who’s not texting you back or do I need to ask?

Victoria: Nate isn’t answering.

Nick: Yeah. Thank you. Vic, you’re just gonna have to let that go. I mean, the more I think about it, it’s so clear dad needed to get nate out of newman enterprises.

Victoria: Okay. Look, I believe him. You’re not gonna talk me out of it, okay?

Nick: Okay.

Victoria: He’s just kind of wondering what comes next. You know, should he fight for his job at newman or go back to chancellor-winters?

Nick: Do they even want him back there?

Victoria: I don’t know. I don’t know, things change. He’s not exactly high on our relationship right now. He doesn’t like that I– that I sided with adam.

Nick: Well, as you know, I do not like him or trust him, but I know you do.

Victoria: So, did you talk to dad anymore?

Nick: I went by the office, I guess he’d already left for the day. But I did get to run into adam.

Victoria: Oh, adam. What is dad gonna do with him? He’s probably gonna make him my assistant.

Nick: I don’t know. You know, he’s been so unpredictable lately, and as we know, now some of it was on purpose, so who knows?

Victoria: Who knows? So, what about you? What are you gonna do? I know that coming back to newman is not your first choice. But where are you leaning with dad’s latest request? You coming back to the family company?

[ Adam sighing ]

Victor: Hi, my baby. You ready to go home?

Nikki: Oh, that oh-so-casual tone in your voice, as if you didn’t just set the whole family on fire.

Victor: What I did is I kept a little flicker from exploding into a flame.

Nikki: Yeah, I know you’d see it that way.

Victor: Yeah, I do.

Nikki: We have to talk about this.

Victor: All right. What you wanna talk about?

Nikki: I saw victoria earlier.

Victor: Uh-huh.

Nikki: She is furious.

Victor: So?

Nikki: I just want you to be prepared. I don’t think you’ll hear from her tonight, but soon.

Victor: Well, I’m not surprised if she’s upset.

Nikki: Well, of course, she’s upset.

Victor: Yeah.

Nikki: To hear that her father was putting on an act to try to trap one or more of his children.

Victor: Now, wait a minute. As you found out, my setting the trap, you know, was productive, right? We found out that her lover, nate, was manipulative as I had expected. So, she just needs time to work this out.

Nikki: Well, I hope that’s all it takes. Victor, I warned you that this could happen. You could lose her. She could decide to leave the company or worse.

Victor: She’s not gonna leave the company. Her blood is in the company. She’ll never leave it.

Nikki: You can push people too far, you know.

Victor: Well, they can push me too far either. Anyway, let’s not talk about that, okay? I really want to go home and, uh, want to enjoy, our time together. I mean, do you have anything to take home? Any work?

Nikki: No, actually, not tonight. Thanks to claire, I am so organized. I did everything I was supposed to do today.

Victor: Oh, she’s still working out?

Nikki: Ah, yeah, she’s terrific. Although she’s dealing with a bit of an emergency at the moment.

Victor: Oh, what kind of an emergency?

Nikki: Well, the aunt that raised her fell and broke her arm, so claire is getting ready to go to oregon for a few days.

Victor: That’s not a good thing. Break your arm, you get older. Oh, well.

Nikki: And, I hear that her aunt is quite a fan of mine.

Victor: Really?

Nikki: Mm. Claire says that her aunt has read everything about me and thinks that her niece becoming my assistant is the best thing to ever happen to her.

Victor: Well, I’ll be damned. Good.

Nikki: So, I offered her a seat on the jet when I go to napa to see casey.

Victor: Oh, yeah. Your surprise visit to your sister, casey the doctor.

Nikki: Yes. And then, claire could take a commercial flight back when she’s comfortable in leaving her aunt alone. And I agreed to go in and meet the woman.

Victor: All right, go for it.

Nikki: Oh, I don’t know.

Victor: What, darling? What is it?

Nikki: Oh, maybe I shouldn’t leave town at all this weekend with all this family upheaval. I mean, it’s a surprise, casey doesn’t know I’m coming, so she can’t be disappointed–

Victor: Sweetheart, I do want you to take that trip. I mean, you’ve been looking forward to seeing your sister, casey, for a long time. And you haven’t seen each other for a while. I will deal with whatever problems I’ve created here over the weekend. I’ll deal with it, okay? I want you to have a good time. You need the rest, my sweetheart, okay? And then you can bask in the admiration of this aunt, whatever the hell her name is. How’s that?

Nikki: All right, darling. Thank you. I will.
