Young & The Restless Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Victoria: How dare you? How dare you bring that horrible man here?
Billy: Look, let me explain for a second, victoria Victoria: there is absolutely nothing that you can say that would justify you trying to hurt me this way.
Billy: Okay, let me explain, okay? Obviously gaines said something to you that got you very upset, and this is not the way I wanted you to find out about his past.
Victoria: I didn’t talk to gaines. And I don’t need to talk to gaines because I know the whole story.
Billy: I highly doubt that.
Ashland: I told her everything about the real ashland locke’s death, the fraudulent inheritance, all of it.
Victoria: This is exactly what you were hoping for — to find some deep, dark secret that was just gonna blow up my entire relationship.
Lily: I think billy just wanted you to know what you were getting into.
Victoria: Oh, please give me a break. If that were true, then you would be relieved right now that ashland confided in me. But look at you. You’re a shattered mess because you’re not the one that got to drop this bomb.
Billy: No, that’s not true, vick.
Victoria: You know how important this wedding is to me. Ashland’s in the middle of chemo. He is fighting so hard to make this a beautiful ceremony for me so that we can have cherished memories for the rest of our lives, billy. And you know what? You’re fighting to take it away. Why can you just not accept that I’ve moved on? For the love of god, just
[Sighs] Stop harassing us. And let me go!
Ashland: [ Sighs ]
[ Laughter ]
Summer: Oh, it is the perfect autumn night tonight.
Kyle: Oh, it sure is.
Phyllis: We seem to have misplaced your dad.
Kyle: Oh, he’s with harrison. They’ve lined up all the toy soldiers in his room, and there’s an epic battle going on now.
Nick: I bet the two of them are having more fun than the rest of us combined.
Noah: I think you’re probably right. I could tell in milan how much jack loves that kid.
Summer: Oh, yeah. No, he totally loves being a grandpa.
Phyllis: You’ve bonded with harrison, too.
Summer: Oh, my gosh, yes. No, he is such a doll. Honestly, whatever fears I had about being a stepmom have just completely gone away.
Phyllis: That’s great.
Kyle: Yeah, summer’s a natural at this whole parenting thing.
Summer: Oh, well, harrison’s so sweet, he makes it easy. I honestly cannot even imagine our life without him now.
Noah: No one’s worried about you not having room in your life for harrison. We’re more worried about you not having room in your closet for all the swag you’re bringing home from marchetti.
Summer: Oh! No, okay, I have a simple solution to that problem. See, I wear them once, and then I just give them away.
Noah: Wait. Seriously?
Summer: Oh, my gosh, no! No, I wouldn’t do that. You are so gullible.
Kyle: He’s right, though. We need to build more closets for all of our shoes.
Summer: You are lying.
Kyle: Mnh, it’s the truth.
[ Laughter ]
Phyllis: Wait a second. Shoes are very, very important. They add to an outfit. Don’t discount shoes. Come on.
Phyllis: You know, especially when you work at marchetti.
Summer: Thank you. Thank you. See? There.
Phyllis: [ Chuckles ]
Summer: And, actually, speaking of closets being full, my glass is not full, so, um…
Kyle: Oh, um, me?
Kyle: Well, I have a solution for that.
Summer: Great, great.
[ Chuckles ]
Noah: Oh, wait for me.
Phyllis: You’re very quiet. Are you okay?
Nick: All good. Nothing to worry about.
Sally: [ Exhales sharply ] Wow, I was so confident the whole way over here. Now…I’m a little nervous.
Adam: What’s your next move?
Sally: [ Sighs ] I guess just…corner victoria somewhere and convince her to try on the dress.
Adam: You might want to rethink that. Victoria sees you first, that’s what she’s gonna react to, and you’re never gonna get to unzip that garment bag.
Sally: Well, I wish I had a friend I could persuade to make the pitch for me.
Adam: [ Sighs ] Maybe there’s another way to go about this.
Sally: Hey, if you have an idea, I’m all ears.
Adam: Come on. Let’s go. Ordinary tissues burn when theo blows.
Billy: I hope you’re not letting the things victoria said get to you. There is nothing wrong with us trying to uncover the truth.
Lily: You — not “us.” And you took it a step way too far by bringing gaines here, to what victoria wanted to be a joyous, stress-free event.
Billy: Well, ashland kind of attacked my credibility. So I felt like I needed gaines here to tell victoria the truth because she wasn’t gonna believe it coming from me.
Lily: Because you thought ashland would lie, and you were wrong about him. Just admit it.
Billy: Yeah, I admit that i did not expect him to come clean about the multiple crimes that he has committed.
Lily: You did the same thing with me when we fell in love. You told me everything that you had done that you were ashamed of. So maybe not everything ashland does is cold and calculated. Maybe he actually loves her and what they have is real. But you don’t like hearing me say that, do you?
Elena: So, we heard you’re performing at the ceremony.
Tessa: Yes! I am so excited. Ah, this place — I mean, it blows me away. Everywhere you look, it’s just more beautiful.
Nate: Mm. You will love the view from the terrace in the morning.
Tessa: I’m so excited.
Nate: So, where’s mariah?
Elena: Yeah. Is she resting after the flight?
Tessa: Well, mariah’s not here. She decided not to come.
Kevin: Your timing is perfect. I was due for a break, and i believe you’ve heard me talk about how awful the coffee is at the station.
Mariah: Mm-hmm. In grisly detail.
Kevin: [ Chuckles ] Anyway, it’s gonna be great to catch up.
Kevin: So, how’s everything going being back at work?
Mariah: Uh, it’s good, you know? I was a little nervous about interacting with a lot of people again, but everybody at jabot has been amazing about the whole situation. It almost feels like normal.
Kevin: That’s awesome. Well, it’s too bad you couldn’t take off a few more days to go to italy with tessa.
Mariah: Well, I could have. I planned to, actually, but then the baby got sick.
Kevin: Oh, no. Poor guy. Is he gonna be okay?
Mariah: Yeah. It’s nothing serious. I mean, it’s just a cold.
Kevin: Oh. Well, then why couldn’t you go with tessa?
Summer: [ Chuckling ] No, i can’t do that. Hey! How’d the battle go?
Jack: The good guys won.
Jack: Harrison’s yawning like crazy, but he insists on a story before he goes to sleep.
Summer: Ah. Well, sounds like you’re being paged, daddy.
Kyle: Come with me?
Summer: Yeah, sure.
Kyle: Alright. We’ll be back.
Jack: See you around.
Noah: Any progress with aunt victoria? Where do thing stand? It seemed like it was a little less tense between you two earlier.
Nick: Yeah. Decided to stick around, do what she asked me to do, which is just give her some space. Hopefully she cools off.
Phyllis: With whatever’s going on with her, I think it has very little to do with you. You know, there’s a million things going on. You know, the wedding, ashland’s health, the newman/locke scenario. I mean, it’s just kind of landing on you, you know?
Nick: Yeah. Well, let’s just try and get through it on our best behavior.
Phyllis: And by “let’s,” you mean me, right? Why wouldn’t I be on my best behavior?
Nick: [ Chuckles ] Right.
Noah: I wonder where ashland and aunt victoria are.
Phyllis: Yeah. We haven’t seen them in a while.
[ Clears throat ]
Victoria: I was so supportive of billy when he moved in with lily.
[ Sighs ] I even bought him a damn houseplant. And this is how he reacts when i want to move on with my life.
Ashland: Sweetheart, you know my theory. Billy is still in love with you.
Victoria: Please don’t go there.
Ashland: What else could this be about?
Victoria: His enormous ego. Look, even if you’re right, what exactly does he expect to accomplish with this stunt? I’m telling you, I will never trust that man again.
Ashland: Billy is not our problem right now. Gaines is. I suspect that his end game is just to humiliate me publicly to feel like he’s had the last laugh.
Victoria: Well, we need to find them, and we need to have security throw them out.
Ashland: Okay, okay. Easy, easy. Leave that up to me, okay?
[ Door opens and closes ] (Drill sergeant) what a pleasant morning. It’s warm, but not too warm.
Mariah: Abby was talking about weaning dominic while i was gone, and I just thought that it was too soon, you know, especially since he wasn’t feeling well. And breast milk is supposed to be amazing for the baby’s immune system. I mean, I know he would have been fine either way.
Kevin: Well, it makes perfect sense that you would feel protective of him.
Mariah: Thank you for understanding.
Kevin: Come on, mariah. Of course. I have a baby, you know? Your whole perspective changes. Nothing’s more important than making sure they have everything they need.
Mariah: But dominic isn’t my baby.
Kevin: No, but you went through a lot together, which i can relate to, given everything I went through as a kid.
Mariah: I remember the stories.
Kevin: I know what it’s like to be locked in a small space for a very long period of time. And I know it’s not the same circumstances, and I don’t mean to pry, but if it would help you to talk about it…
Mariah: I’m doing okay with that aspect of it, you know, the trauma. I — I get a little jumpy if i hear footsteps behind me, and I don’t like too much quiet or being alone for too long. But I’m doing okay, you know? I can function.
Kevin: I’m glad to hear that.
Mariah: But I — I want to hear about you. How are bella and miles doing?
Kevin: [ Sighs ] You want me to brag about my kids?
Kevin: I’m in.
Mariah: [ Laughs ]
Billy: [ Sighs ] I don’t have a hidden agenda. I know victoria’s trying to push that because she’s in denial about how serious ashland’s crimes are.
Lily: Maybe it’s because they happened 40 years ago and she doesn’t think they’re relevant to the person she knows now.
Billy: Or maybe there’s another reason why she’s trying to protect him. Maybe it has to do with the merger. It’s the biggest accomplishment of her professional life, and she doesn’t want it to fall apart. I wouldn’t put it past her father pressuring her into it, either.
Lily: Billy, it does not matter why victoria is standing by ashland. She is, okay? So, your big plan to expose him has backfired.
Billy: Well, it might look that way on the surface. You saw her. You saw how defensive she was. Ashland’s crimes bother her, and they should because the guy is a liar and a criminal.
Lily: Billy, I need you to listen to me, okay? The wedding is happening tomorrow, whether you like it or not. And that is victoria’s choice to make.
Billy: So, what do you want me to do? You want me to just drop it, let her make a mistake?
Lily: Honestly, I think that maybe we shouldn’t even be here.
Nikki: Here’s someone you will want to meet. Leslie brooks, tessa porter.
Tessa: Oh, my gosh, hi!
Leslie: Oh, it’s so great to meet you!
Tessa: Yes, it’s so great to meet you in person finally. Oh, we’ve been video-chatting about what song we’re gonna do at the ceremony, yeah.
Victor: I can hardly wait.
Leslie: I’m so looking forward to performing with you.
Tessa: Oh, trust me — I am the one who’s excited.
Nikki: Now, I know you’ve been traveling all day and are very tired, but if the two of you want to go over some songs and get comfortable with each other, you’re more than welcome.
Leslie: Excellent. Do you know any standards?
Tessa: Jazz? Absolutely.
Leslie: [ Chuckles ] And I do take requests.
Nikki: Oh, well, now that you mention it, I might have a few favorites to suggest.
Victor: There you go.
[ Sighs ]
Adam: Hey, pop.
Victor: Hey, my boy! So glad you came. My goodness. Adam. Well, look at this. The three generations together. Let’s have a drink. Come on. Sit down.
Adam: Sure, dad. Noah. Oh, great job on the, uh, newman media branding package, by the way.
Noah: How’s it going, adam?
Adam: Fine. You?
Noah: Doing okay. Thanks for asking.
Victor: You know, I really appreciate that you all made the effort to come here and join us. And I really appreciate the fact that you’re trying to get along, you know?
Adam: Eh, nick — he’s not that bad.
Nick: I guess I can deal with him.
[ “Finally” plays ]
Your love gets in the way
of the bad things people say
my feet were broken and bleedin’
you washed my sins away
my heart needed dreamin’
I found somethin’ strong and steady
I know I’m ready
for someone like you
I’m runnin’ to someone great
who wants me to feel safe
Victoria: [ Sighs ] Damn you, billy.
Tessa: Is definitely worth keepin’
Victoria: I am not gonna let you ruin this night for me.
Tessa: Dancin’ like little kids
up on the ceiling
who knows where we are going
the road might be steep ahead
but you’ll always have my hand
I found somethin’ strong and steady
I know I’m ready for someone like you
I’m runnin’ to someone great
who wants me to feel safe
finally what can I du with less asthma?
Victoria: That’s odd.
[ Door closes ]
Sally: [ Sighs heavily ]
Lily: I mean, everyone is doing their best to cheer on ashland and victoria, and if we can’t join them, we shouldn’t be here. You know, the kids can fly home with victor and nikki.
Billy: That’s not necessary. Look, I am not going to apologize for trying to uncover the truth. And I really don’t think ashland deserves a bunch of credit because he came clean after feeling the pressure of somebody investigating him.
Lily: Then take all the credit, billy. It doesn’t change anything. She’s still gonna marry ashland tomorrow.
Billy: So, that’s it? Okay. I won’t intervene. I’ll find gaines and send him on his way.
Lily: Simple as that, huh?
Billy: No, honestly, it’s not gonna be that simple. Gaines has wanted his revenge on ashland for a very long time. So I’m gonna throw some more money at him and give him a first-class ticket out of here.
Lily: And what about the wedding?
Billy: I think we should go. The most important thing right now is johnny and katie see that their parents support each other. And victoria is gonna need some help when ashland’s health starts to deteriorate. And I would like her to know that she can count on me.
Lily: That’s quite an attitude shift. I’m impressed.
Billy: I hope you realize this whole time I was just trying to do the right thing. Victoria has been hurt a lot in her life, mostly by me.
Lily: I know it’s your way of making amends, in your own antagonistic way.
Billy: I hope you are not questioning my commitment to you. I love you. Which is another reason why we should go to that wedding — so you can see with your own eyes that I am not hung up on my ex. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Billy, I know that you’re a passionate man. And I know that you’ll go to extremes to take care of the people that you love. And even though it’s exhausting, it’s also very endearing.
Billy: I was hoping you were gonna say something more along the lines of “hot and sexy.”
Lily: Oh, well, I mean, that goes without saying.
[ Chuckles ]
Adam: Enjoying your evening?
Elena: Yeah. Very much so. You?
Adam: Ah. What’s not to like, right?
Nate: One of the loveliest homes I’ve ever seen, complete with a private concert by a world-renowned artist? There’s not a lot that can top it.
Elena: Hey, did you ever get in touch with billy after you guys missed each other at society?
Adam: Uh, I ended up tracking him down before I left genoa city. But the, uh, conversation didn’t go as well as I hoped, so i should probably steer clear of him while we’re here.
Nate: Well, given the size of this place, that shouldn’t be an issue.
Phyllis: Look at this guy. Look — he has the audacity to show up.
Jack: I’m sure victor’s glad he did.
Phyllis: Amazing. Does it bother you at all, what he’s done to his family? Like, at all?
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] I mean, victoria’s fine with him, but she’s treating nick like he’s the gate crasher. Seriously. This family.
[ Sighs ] They drive me crazy. Have I told you how crazy they drive me? Have I ever told you?
Jack: Uh, yeah, once or twice, yeah. Um…let it go. This will be over soon.
Phyllis: Not soon enough.
Nikki: So beautiful.
Tessa: Oh, thank you.
Nikki: Oh, my goodness.
Tessa: Thank you.
Victoria: Thank you so much, both of you, for your serenade together. You sound so beautiful.
Tessa: Oh, thank you.
Nikki: Well, they were just about to grace us with another song.
Leslie: Shall we?
[ “You’re the best thing” plays ]
Tessa: You’re the best thing
that’s happened to me
the key to my heart
you’re the best thing
that’s happened to me
I knew from the start
Victor: Hi, my sweetheart. Hi, my sweetheart.
Tessa: We complement each other
Victor: Everything alright?
Victoria: [ Sighs ]
Tessa: Like sister and brother
like hops and malt
sugar and salt
fall and spring
yang and ying feeling stressed in your skin?
“The young and the restless”
Phyllis: Hey, did you have another run-in with victoria?
Nick: She doesn’t want to deal with me, which is fine. I don’t want to make this situation about myself.
Phyllis: Alright. Well, she’s gonna come around. And she is going to owe you the biggest apology.
Nick: [ Sighs ] I know you don’t like my sister, but it’s not helping when you’re exploiting this.
Phyllis: Okay, well, I’m not exploiting anything. That’s not what I’m doing. I’m sympathizing with you.
Nick: I don’t see it like that.
Phyllis: Oh. Alright.
Jack: Hey. Let it roll off your back. Don’t take that personally. He’s upset right now.
Phyllis: That’s o– doesn’t make it any better.
Kevin: Oh, I mean, thank god for esther, right? Two kids, two jobs. I don’t know how we would make it work without her. And now that miles is walking, I mean, look out, world.
Mariah: Yeah, yeah, I guess he is that age, which means i missed his first birthday. Sorry.
Kevin: You don’t have to apologize. “A,” you were otherwise occupied, and, “b,” miles is very easygoing. He doesn’t hold grudges. You know, besides, birthday parties for babies are kind of pointless. They have no idea what’s going on. It’s really just all about the parents. So, my advice — if you and tessa decide to have kids, don’t even invite the babies. They just get in the way.
Mariah: And thank you for not sneaking in a “party-poopers” pun — because I could see it, and it was just right there.
Kevin: It was really hard. But I’m a classy guy.
[ Cellphone ringing ]
Mariah: Oh. Hey! Tessa! Yeah. Hi. What time is it in europe? Oh, my gosh.
Tessa: It’s pretty late.
Mariah: How is everything going? Are you — are you jet-lagged? Are you feeling okay?
Tessa: Well, I, uh, slept on the plane, and, boy, am I glad that I did because this place is just so over the top. And I mean that in the best way. It’s just like — it’s something out of a magazine. Everyone’s, um, asking about you and sending their love. Oh, and I got to meet leslie brooks. Oh, she is so cool and funny. We got to rehearse, and she’s just really down to earth, and I’m just —
Mariah: Tessa, all of that, uh, sounds amazing, and I wish i could talk right now, but, um, I barely slept last night and I’m in zombie mode and buried in work and, um — we’ll catch up later, okay?
Tessa: Oh, yeah. Sure. Of course. I love you.
Mariah: Me too. Bye.
[ Mug thuds ]
Tessa: Well, hi yourself.
Noah: You know, until i walked in before and saw you, I — I don’t think I realized how much I’ve missed you.
Sally: Okay. Mission accomplished. Or, at least, the first phase. Now we just wait and see how the bride reacts.
Adam: I really hope you are managing your expectations.
Sally: I designed that dress specifically to suit victoria’s taste and figure, so I have to believe that she’s gonna love it, at which point I will move in and make my final sales pitch.
Adam: You know, I really do hope this works out for you, sally.
Sally: Everything’s riding on this.
Summer: Oh, my gosh, you should have seen it. When I came back with water for harrison, the butler was in there trying to teach him how to pronounce “arrivederci,” and harrison kept saying “bless you,” thinking that he was sneezing every time.
Kyle: [ Laughing ] Please tell me you got it on video.
Summer: No, I didn’t, and i am kicking myself ’cause it was so cute. Oh, gosh.
Adam: Congratulations. How was the wedding?
Summer: [ Scoffs ] What is she doing here?
Adam: Sally’s my date. On the outside, I looked fine.
Jack: Wait. Adam actually said that sally is here as his date?
Summer: Mm-hmm. It’s a bit tacky, if you ask me.
Phyllis: Yeah, well, it is tacky, but, you know, it’s adam. He showed up with sally on his arm to the newman media launch party. Why would he not do the same here? Of course he brought her.
Kyle: Think victoria knew he was planning this?
Jack: No, I don’t think so.
Summer: You know, I doubt grandpa knew, either, because there’s no way he would want her here after the way that she treated me.
Kyle: If it’s really bugging you that much, just say the word. I’m sure victor will have her bounced.
Phyllis: Yeah, sounds like a plan. Let’s do that.
Summer: That woman is not worth the attention that we’ve already given her, so let’s not give sally the satisfaction of knowing that she’s gotten under our skin, okay?
Jack: I think your daughter has the right idea. You should do the same thing. Stay away from sally and any ice buckets you happen to see.
Phyllis: Oh, you know what? I think you have that the other way around. Sally should stay away from me.
Adam: You really enjoy riling people up, don’t you?
Sally: Everyone needs a hobby. Still, probably would be a good time for me to slip away to my room. Hopefully if your family decides to give me the boot, they won’t roust me out of bed to do it.
Adam: Mm. Well, I wouldn’t sweat it. My father and victoria have more important things to worry about.
Sally: I’m sure you’re right. Anyway, good night. Sleep well.
Adam: You too.
Victor: Yes, ashland?
Ashland: [ Whispering indistinctly ]
Kevin: Should we pretend i didn’t just hear you blowing off your girlfriend? Or do you want to talk about it? Or do you want to pretend that i didn’t even ask that question?
Mariah: It’s fine. Thank you for being willing to listen. And maybe someday I will take you up on that. But for now, I really — I just want to hear about the kids. Is bella still taking dance lessons?
Kevin: Yes. She just had a recital. Mad hatter’s tea party. All of these kids in in these elaborately adorable costumes.
Mariah: What was she dressed as?
Kevin: She was the dormouse! You know, cute pink nose and whiskers.
[ Laughing ] But, oh, there was this other little girl who was dressed as a sugar cube.
Mariah: [ Laughing ] Okay. What’s so funny?
Kevin: No, I mean, she was, like, this giant sugar cube, okay, with this tiny little girl inside. So, she’s dancing and all of a sudden she loses her balance and she falls onto her back, okay? So, all the other kids still keep dancing, and this girl is, like, flailing her arms and legs. Oh, my gosh, we laughed.
[ Both laugh ]
Tessa: So… how’s london? How’s the photography going?
Noah: It’s really well, actually. It’s almost more work than I can handle.
Tessa: Noah, that’s great.
Noah: Yeah. And I got three corporate commissions waiting for me when I get back.
Tessa: Well, here you are, making art for a living, and I’m singing for a living. I mean, how crazy is that? We can both say that we’re living the dream without being ironic.
Noah: Yeah, I hadn’t really thought about it that way, but you’re right. Although I think you may have been a little bit smarter than me in choosing which dream to pursue.
Tessa: Why would you say that? I thought you loved art.
Noah: No, I do, and I’m really happy to be in a field where I can be creative, but… you know, when people pay to hear you sing, it’s because they love your music. You know, they feel it in their soul. The art world is just… it’s just different.
Tessa: Well, how?
Noah: You know, a lot of it comes down to investment value. So there are people who buy my pieces because they intend to flip it, you know, like it’s a condo in west palm beach.
Tessa: Well, that sounds pretty cynical.
Noah: I understand the mentality. I come from a business background, but, yeah, it can be a little discouraging. You know, one time I actually had a client who offered to pay me to produce less. That way, the value in the pieces he already owned would go up. Supply and demand.
[ Both laugh ]
Tessa: Wow. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. That’s just really nuts.
Noah: It’s the nature of the beast, I guess.
Tessa: Well, if it makes you feel better, I don’t think a music career would be very different for you.
Noah: Oh, you mean people would pay me not to sing?
Tessa: [ Laughing ] No, no, that’s not what I meant.
Noah: No, I know. I know. Music’s commercial, too.
Noah: I’m just giving you a hard time.
Tessa: Yeah, you’re good at that.
Noah: But is it a career track? That’s the real question.
Tessa: Uh…stand-up comic? Working the club circuit? Well, I do think you have to be funny to do that, and you’re painfully serious, like, all of the time.
Noah: Yeah, you know, borderline boring.
Tessa: Ugh. A real snore.
[ Both laugh ]
Victor: I’m very happy to hear that victoria put billy boy in his place. Now we have to be concerned about gaines.
Ashland: It’s not gonna be that easy to get rid of him. It’s not the money at this point. He’s got a score to settle.
Victor: I don’t want you to worry about that. I’ll take care of it, okay?
Ashland: Look, even if we can keep gaines away from the wedding, he can still do damage to newman/locke, to the firm’s reputation.
Victor: It’s not gonna happen. Are you tired of clean clothes that just don’t smell clean?
Elena: I know it’s late, but it’s heavenly out here.
Elena: And tomorrow it’s gonna be hectic and full of people.
Elena: And you’re gonna be busy helping ashland. But tonight you’re all mine.
Nate: Mmm. I like the sound of that.
[ Soft, romantic piano music plays ]
Elena: Just when you thought it couldn’t get better.
Nate: It still can.
Lily: We never made it to the party.
Billy: [ Chuckles ] You distracted me.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Well, we definitely had more fun up here.
Lily: And now we can enjoy the festivities. So I’m glad we didn’t leave.
Billy: ‘Cause of the beautiful music?
Lily: Well, I mean, it doesn’t suck.
[ Both chuckle ]
Lily: But seriously, I’m really happy that you’re able to see where you’ve gotten off track. I really admire your ability to course-correct. Not everyone can do that.
Billy: Is there anything else you admire about me?
Lily: [ Whispering indistinctly ]
Billy: I’ll take it.
Phyllis: Oh, good night, you two.
Elena: Night, night.
Nate: We’ll see you in the morning.
Phyllis: Okay. Is this seat reserved, or can anybody sit here?
Nick: I’m sorry I snapped at you. None of this is your fault.
Phyllis: That’s for sure. You know, it’s hard for me to hang out with your family. They don’t like me or trust me, and I feel the same way about them. But I do this for you. I’m here for you.
Nick: I was out of line. Won’t happen again.
Phyllis: I almost forgive you.
Nick: You gonna make me work for it?
Phyllis: Mm-hmm. I am.
Nikki: You haven’t seen victor, have you?
[ Door opens ]
Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Where were you?
Ashland: Victor and I briefed the security team, and they are on top of the situation. They will find gaines, and they will remove him.
Victoria: Well, I’m just glad that we found out what billy was up to in time to put a stop to it.
[ Inhales deeply ] I just hope that everything will go smoothly for our wedding.
Ashland: There will be no more interruptions, and that’s a promise. And by this time tomorrow, you and I… will be husband and wife.
Victoria: [ Laughs ]
