Ashland: Thanks for coming.
Nick: Yeah. I’m curious what you and vic have to say. Where is she?
Ashland: Not here. It’s just me. We haven’t had a chance to talk privately since the wedding in tuscany.
Nick: Oh, I’m aware.
Ashland: I think it’s time we cleared the air.
Victoria: Hello, dad.
Victor: Hi, sweetheart. I am so glad I ran into you. We need to talk, you know.
Victoria: Uh, daddy, do you think this is the time or the place for either of us to discuss which one of our companies is going to acquire —
Victor: This is not about business, this is about family.
Victor: You won’t believe what I’m about to say. Remember that abby went to spain, to valencia? Abby found chance, and she brought him back. Can you believe that? I know.
Abby: Chance? You okay?
Chance: [ Sighs ]
Chance: Absolutely. I am exactly where I want to be. Home. Hey, big guy. Hey, buddy.
Abby: What do you think?
[ Laughs ]
Nikki: I appreciate you helping me put together this little cocktail party at the last minute.
Phyllis: Yeah, my pleasure. My pleasure. Quite shocking that chance is alive — right? — And home. I’m sure abby is relieved.
Adam: Um, nikki? Is, uh — is dad with you? We were supposed to have a meeting, and he didn’t show up, and he’s not returning my calls, so I’m starting to think he’s avoiding me.
Billy: Look, I appreciate the offer, but I’d rather be alone right now.
Sally: No problem. And I still have to wait for my takeout, and since this seat is open, I hope you don’t mind if i take a seat anyway.
Billy: You know, sally, i don’t want to be rude, but you’re being a little pushy. The truth is, I don’t want your company.
Sally: Wow. That’s kind of hard not to take personally. I was just trying to be nice.
Billy: Oh, come on. Look, I don’t know what’s going on with you and adam. Clearly, something’s going on. But it means that I can’t trust you, so forgive me for wanting to keep my distance.
Sally: Cool. Yeah. No taking offense to that at all. But, you know, it’s not really a good look to be drinking alone before happy hour.
Billy: Yeah, I’m not really concerned about my appearance right now.
Sally: Okay. Well, then let me be concerned for the both of us. So, you sit there, I will sit here. We do not even have to talk to each other. It will at least make you look a little less pathetic. Hi. So you’re the scientist here.
Victoria: Chance is alive?
Victoria: Oh, gosh. Abby must be — I mean, she must be stunned.
Victor: Oh, she’s ecstatic.
Victoria: She’s got to be thrilled.
Victor: She never completely believed that he was dead. She followed her instinct and brought him home finally.
Victoria: Yes. She showed so much courage. I’m so happy for her. You know what I’m gonna do? I’m gonna stop by on my way back to the office. I’m gonna check on her and chance.
Victor: You don’t need to do that because your mother and i are planning a welcome-home party tonight at the grand phoenix, all right?
Victoria: Oh. Um, well, I appreciate the invitation, but before ashland and I accept the invite, um… maybe we should discuss this chanccomm situation after all.
Phyllis: I’m assuming your pressing, uh…question with victor has to do with the bidding for chanccomm. Wow. This should be a shocking cliffhanger.
Nikki: He’s not avoiding you. He’s just been dealing with more important things. Like letting the family know about chance’s return.
Adam: W– wait. Chance is alive? And he’s back in genoa city? Dad did not tell me any of that.
Nikki: Oh, I’m so sorry. I thought he had. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have mentioned it so casually. Yes, and we’re having a little get-together here tonight, if you can make it.
Adam: Um, well, that’s — that’s incredible news. But…I have plans with connor tonight, so… I’ll have to call abby and chance directly this afternoon.
Noah: Hey. Uh, grandpa left me a message, told me to meet him here.
Nikki: Oh, hi, honey. He’s running a little late, and I have to go over some plans with him, but I will tell him to call you as soon as he can.
Noah: Okay. Oh, and mariah told me the news about chance, and I’ll definitely try to make it tonight.
Adam: Actually, no, um… I was the one that asked dad to reach out to you. ‘Cause I figured you’d be more likely to respond to him than me.
Noah: Yeah, well, you know, you’re not wrong. I thought all the branding work I did for newman media was wrapped up. Please tell me you don’t have any more revisions.
Adam: [ Chuckles ] No. No, actually, I’m — I’m thrilled with your work. Maybe we could talk in private. Do you have a few minutes to head back to the office?
Noah: Yeah. Yeah, sure.
Phyllis: I’d watch out if i were you. I mean, the last thing you want is adam having an influence over noah.
Sally: You know, adam and i aren’t as close as people seem to believe.
Billy: Come on, sally. You showed up at the newman media launch together, you flew in his private jet to tuscany together for victoria’s wedding. I’ve seen you out and about more than I ever saw you and jack. And I know for a fact that you two were dating.
Sally: Yeah, well, you really shouldn’t believe everything you read in the tabloids, especially your own.
Billy: Well, that’s the funny thing about running a media company — you realize that most of the gossip is true.
Sally: Adam is my boss. He signs my checks, so I get you not wanting to confide in me about your business battles. But I need to set the record straight. Chloe and I have complete autonomy over our newman fashion platform, and it’s not like i have to suck up to the boss. There’s absolutely nothing romantic going on between me and adam.
Billy: Well, if that’s true, then that’s good for you. Because there’s no one more capable of tearing apart your soul than adam newman.
Sally: Hey. I’m gonna cut through a few layers of politeness and proper social etiquette here, because i sense that there’s something… much deeper going on. Are you really gonna be okay?
Chance: Look at him.
Abby: [ Chuckles ]
Chance: Look at that big boy.
Chance: I just can’t believe how perfect our baby is. Look at him.
Abby: He really is, isn’t he?
Chance: Yeah. I’m sorry for what you and mariah went through to bring him into this world. I feel terrible I wasn’t here to protect mariah from stitch or to protect our son. I just thought i’d be home sooner. I’m sorry, abby. Everything’s —
Abby: Stop. Look, I’m not gonna let you blame yourself for anything. The past is the past. And what matters is that you’re home with people who love you.
Chance: I am so grateful.
Abby: In fact, my dad is so excited that you’re back…
Abby: …That he wants to throw a party to welcome you home.
Chance: [ Chuckles nervously ] Party?
[ Sighs ] It’s my woke-up-like-this migraine medicine.
Chance: Abby, I’m just not sure if I’m ready to face a group like that yet. I don’t — I don’t know. I —
Abby: Hey, hey. You know what? I will call my dad and tell him that we’re canceling.
Chance: Wait. You already told him we’d go?
Abby: [ Scoffs ] I’m sorry. I wasn’t thinking. I’m just — I’m so excited that you’re home, I wanted to celebrate. And I thought the security detail’s here, they could keep us safe. And I know that everybody who loves you, they want to see you and hug you. And my dad thought that, you know, maybe a small family gathering would be less stressful for you.
Chance: Mm. Get it over with in one fell swoop, huh?
Abby: Sort of. But you know what? Everyone will understand if i tell them that we’re not up for it.
Chance: No. No, no, hey. Don’t cancel. I’ve missed everyone. I’ve been away for so long, I, uh… I want to feel life again. And people and love.
Chance: Okay. But first, I, uh… I want to feel you again.
Abby: Mmm. Okay, come on. You’re coming with me.
Chance: Oh, I’m coming with you?
Chance: Oh. Can’t wait to get up there.
Victor: You know, the only reason that I would be upset with you…if I found out that you made a move for chanccomm to protect billy boy.
Victoria: Oh, no, no. I assure you that is not my motivation. It’s purely business.
Victor: And you know, talking about your business, you selling that division to chancellor was a mistake. You know that.
Victoria: In retrospect, yes, it was a mistake.
Victoria: Which is why i proposed to ashland that we get it back. I’d like it back in the newman fold.
Victor: So it was your idea.
Victor: I’m happy to hear that.
Victoria: You know, dad, that ashland is 100% behind me. He is my partner, both in business and in life. I know that you’re not exactly happy about his involvement. And to tell you the truth, adam wasn’t very happy, either, and he made that clear when he said that ashland’s participation was a betrayal of newman media.
Victor: You know your brother doesn’t like to be bested.
Victoria: Well, none of us newmans do. Must be something in the genes.
Victor: Actually, it’s very true. Wonder where you got that from. But I’m happy to know that ashland was part of cutting billy boy off at the knees. He was part of humiliating billy boy and making him resign. Now, beyond that, I don’t really care about chanccomm. It’s another piece on a chess board. You and adam are both vying for the prize, so may the best competitor win.
Victoria: And you’re not gonna put your foot on the scale?
Victor: No. No, no, no, no. Means nothing to me. You know, I love my family. And although you and I have often been on the opposite end of some big business deal, I’m very proud of you. And now your mother is waiting for me. So, hopefully, I’ll see you later on, okay?
Victoria: I’ll see you at the party.
Victor: Bye, sweetheart.
[ Door opens ]
Nick: Well, what exactly are we clearing up? I mean, there’s just so much to choose from.
Ashland: Well, I know that you and victoria have made headway in working through your issues. She told me that you had a heart-to-heart about your breakup with phyllis, and I’m sorry to hear that that didn’t work out.
Nick: That is not something that you and I are gonna talk about.
Ashland: Well, okay, then. Back to you and victoria. It’s clear that your fences aren’t completely mended.
Nick: Also none of your business.
Ashland: Well, she’s my wife.
Nick: She’s my sister. It’s a family matter.
Ashland: I’m family now. I mean, do you still regret that victoria and I followed through with the wedding?
Nikki: Well, you and I are in agreement about noah and adam. I’m worried about my grandson. He’s been out of sorts since returning home.
Phyllis: Yeah, I know, which makes him ripe for the pickin’ for adam to take him under his wing.
Nikki: Oh, not necessarily. I — I don’t think that noah is really eager to embrace the new and improved adam. From what I understand, he tolerated working with his uncle for newman media branding, but he really didn’t appreciate being micromanaged over his own designs.
Phyllis: Well, that’s interesting. I don’t know why noah left london. I thought his career was really taking off.
Nikki: You know, sometimes career isn’t the most important thing in life.
Phyllis: Oh, that’s for me, right? ‘Cause you’re insinuating that nick and I broke up because i was too into my career here at the hotel? Honestly, that is ridiculous and unfounded.
Nikki: Okay. Will you calm down? Not every comment in a conversation is about you. Okay. I’m sorry it didn’t work out, for my son’s sake. I mean, I wasn’t thrilled to hear that the two of you were gonna get involved again, nor did I have high hopes that it would work this time… but I hate seeing my son in pain, and nicholas is hurting over your breakup.
Phyllis: That was a very difficult decision for both of us to make.
Nikki: And yet you seem to be doing just fine.
Phyllis: You don’t know what’s going on with me — right? — So don’t pretend to think that you know what’s going on inside of my head, okay?
May you have joy, comfort and peace.
Nikki: I didn’t mean to offend you. I know people deal with heartbreak in different ways.
Phyllis: It’s really easy to judge a relationship when you’re on the outside, isn’t it? Oh. Uh, excuse me. I need to make a phone call.
Victor: Hello, my baby.
Victor: Are you all right?
Nikki: Yeah. Fine.
Victor: Okay. Sorry I’m late. I ran into victoria and gave her an update on chance.
Nikki: Was everything all right between you and victoria?
Victor: Yes, I told victoria that, um… love and family trumps business.
Nikki: Well, that is true.
Nikki: Uh, by the way, adam was here looking for you. He thinks you’re avoiding him.
Victor: Why would he think that I’m avoiding him? I’m just stepping back. You know, whatever issues exist between him and victoria, they’ve got to work it out themselves. That’s all. I have a feeling, though, once they both start fighting for chanccomm, things will get heated.
Nikki: Don’t tell me you’re looking forward to that.
Victor: No. ‘Course not.
Nikki: That glint in your eye says otherwise.
Victor: Everything set for tonight?
Nikki: Yeah, it’s almost finished. Dealing with phyllis is always challenging.
Victor: Oh, boy.
Nikki: Which is why I was surprised that you wanted to have the gathering here tonight so soon after her breakup with nicholas.
Nikki: Is that why? You figured nicholas wouldn’t come and wouldn’t create any conflict for victoria and ashland?
Victor: Let’s just say I hope that nicholas will be able to put aside his differences, you know, and show up.
Nikki: Well, I hope so.
Victor: Yeah. This, tonight, is about abby and chance, okay? They’re home, and they’re safe. Everything else is secondary.
Ashland: Yeah, your sister is happy, okay? But I know how much her family means to her. And instead of there being this tension between us when our paths cross, why don’t we get it all out?
Nick: Yeah, well, getting it all out’s not gonna change my mind about anything.
Ashland: I mean, what have i done that you think is so wrong?
Nick: Really? A-are you kidding?
Ashland: Victoria has forgiven me for my past.
Nick: Which I think is insane. I cannot fathom how she is just okay with everything that you’ve done. I mean, you let your best friend die, and then you stole his identity, and then you robbed your mentor of her fortune so you could begin your career. Yeah, I know, you filed a lawsuit against chanccomm, but i know everything in that story is true. I also know that you never would’ve told vic the truth if i hadn’t pursued this. So while she and the rest of the family don’t seem to care about this, i do. I’m never gonna forget it, I’m never gonna think it’s okay, because I think you’re an opportunist with no moral standards. And everyone in the family that are just giving you a pass, i guess because you’re sick. But you know what? If I were to find out tomorrow that you were no longer dying, I’d have to wonder if you were ever sick in the first place.
Ashland: I appreciate your honesty.
Nick: Yeah? Well, do you feel better about this little exchange? Because I don’T. It’s why I’m trying to stay out of it. I’m trying to stay out of victoria’s business. But let me tell you something, ashland. If I find out that you ever hurt victoria or take advantage of her in any way, trust me — you will have an enemy in me for life.
Victoria: [ Clears throat ]
Adam: So, are you still planning on staying in genoa city for a while?
Noah: Why do you ask?
Adam: Well, I would like to bring you into newman media for some more graphic-design projects. I mean, we have a lot of branding for newman fashions, and, actually, we have a more urgent project that needs work.
Noah: A-adam, look, i appreciate the offer, okay, but I already told you, helping to establish the original branding, it was a one-time job. I don’t really like working for big companies, and I want to use my time here to reassess. You know, think about what i want to do next. I’m working on a project for a friend right now, but I’m just not really interested in a job on the scale that newman media would be looking for.
Adam: I respect that. But nothing says it has to be permanent, so just think about it. Could be a great way to stay busy, creative, and forget about whatever drove you away from london. So it sounds like a win/win.
Noah: [ Sighs ] I’ll consider it.
Noah: I got to say, man, I’ve, uh — I’ve heard a lot about this new attitude of yours, you know, from my mom, dad, and faith. I’m not gonna lie. I’m having a hard time buying it.
Adam: I get it. We have had a, uh, rough history. There’s no reason that you should welcome me back into your life with open arms.
Noah: But it’s hard not to see that something has changed. That doesn’t mean that I liked all the notes you gave me on my designs.
Adam: [ Chuckles ] Well, there is a certain built-in conflict between the creative and the suit, huh?
Noah: [ Chuckles ] That’s actually what I was gonna say. It almost felt normal.
Adam: So maybe the lesson is, don’t write anyone off, ’cause everyone can surprise you.
Sally: Thank you. Can you put that on my bill? In my experience, whenever you’re feeling down, it is better to caffeinate than to numb the pain.
Billy: Thanks for the tip.
Sally: [ Sighs ] I’ve been there. I’m kind of an expert on being a pariah. So I know that sting when everything that you’ve done boomerangs back on you.
Billy: Oh, I don’t know. I’ve taken the pariah status to knew heights — or depths. Depends on how you look at it. And I’ve managed to lose the trust of my most stalwart believer, my mother.
Sally: How’d you do that?
Billy: Wouldn’t your platonic boss love to hear about it?
Sally: [ Scoffs ] You don’t have to give me any details. All I’m saying is I recognize the feelings that you’re having, and they are not fun.
Billy: Oh, I don’t know about that. This, all this, it’s kind of comforting. The rabbit hole is familiar for me. It kind of feels like home.
Sally: Come on. You’re much better than that.
Billy: How the hell would you know?
Sally: From our limited encounters, I am aware that you’re usually acting to protect someone. So I understand the feeling of doing the wrong things for the right reasons. So I happen to think you have a good heart.
Billy: That’s not a common opinion.
Sally: Yeah, well, I often go against the grain. Ah, thank you. My takeout is here, but I would be more than happy to eat it here, and we could get some soup for you.
Billy: I’m good. Thank you. I’ll see you at our next run-in. That’s it, sally. You run back to adam and tell him all about my pathetic state. Please. With age comes more… Hi, my name is tony cooper, and I’m going to tell you about exciting medicare advantage plans that can provide broad coverage and still may save you money on monthly premiums and prescription drugs. With original medicare you are covered for hospital stays and doctor office visits but you have to meet a deductible for each, and then you’re still responsible for 20% of the cost. Next, let’s look at a medicare supplement plan. As you can see, they cover the same things as original medicare, and they also cover your medicare deductibles and coinsurance. But they often have higher monthly premiums and no prescription drug coverage. Now, let’s take a look at humana’s medicare advantage plans. With a humana medicare advantage plan, hospitals stays, doctor office visits and your original medicare deductibles are covered. And, of course, most humana medicare advantage plans include prescription drug coverage. In fact, in 2020, humana medicare advantage prescription drug plan members saved an estimated $8,400 on average on their prescription costs. Most humana medicare advantage plans include a silver sneakers fitness program at no extra cost. Dental, vision and hearing coverage is included with most humana medicare advantage plans. And you get telehealth coverage with a zero-dollar copay. You get all of this for as low as a zero-dollar monthly plan premium in many areas; and your doctor and hospital may already be a part of humana’s large network. If you want the facts, call right now for the free decision guide from humana. There is no obligation, so call the number on your screen right now to see if your doctor is in our network; to find out if you could save on your prescriptions, and to get our free decision guide. Humana, a more human way to healthcare.
“The young and the restless”
Sally: I have to tell Y… sorry. I didn’t realize you were in a meeting. I’m sally. We met at victoria and ashland’s wedding in tuscany.
Noah: Yeah, I remember. You designed my aunt’s wedding dress. Made quite the splash.
Sally: Happy you noticed. I thought you lived in london. Are you here visiting?
Noah: More of a relocation.
Adam: I’m trying to take advantage of having a famous artist in the family by convincing him to do some work for us.
Sally: Well, that would be amazing. I love your aesthetic. The banding you did for newman media was so fresh. Could we maybe get you for newman fashion? ‘Cause you would be perfect.
Noah: I’m not really looking for work right now, but I told adam that I’d think about it.
Adam: Mm-hmm. And if I do convince him to come work for us, you’re gonna have to get in line, because I have a project that I need him for first.
Sally: Well, if you let me bend your ear for a second, i think I could get you to see why we would be a great fit.
Noah: Hard sell. I respect it. Look, I’ll consider the offer, okay? Thanks, guys.
Adam: You bet. Came on a little strong there.
Sally: Well, most of the time, that’s what works. Suddenly have a problem with my approach?
Adam: Um, no, not necessarily. What’s up?
Sally: Well [Clears throat] I just ran into billy abbott at society.
Adam: [ Sighs ] I thought I told you to stay out of my business with billy.
Sally: Okay, well, I wasn’t trying to butt in. It was an accidental encounter. But I do have a question. I know that you intended to hit billy where it hurt, but was your plan to do serious psychological damage?
Adam: Right, because billy is the victim in all this.
Sally: [ Scoffs ]
Adam: But, no, I did not intend to give the man a nervous breakdown. What exactly did he say?
Sally: Nothing about chanccomm. He knew better. It was just…sad. He was drinking, and he seemed depressed. And then he said something about going down a rabbit hole like he’d done in the past.
Adam: Why would he say all of that to you?
Sally: I was just trying to make conversation while I was waiting for my takeout, and i don’t know if he was looking for sympathy, but I sort of did feel for the guy.
Billy: Uh-oh. Do I sense overworked energy?
Lily: Yeah, uh-huh. How’d you guess? Oh, where have you been? Are you okay?
Billy: Yeah, I’m great now that I’m home with you. What’s, uh — what’s going on here? What is all this?
Lily: Well, jill’s assistant just sent over a ton of chancellor files, which I’m just now getting to because jill also thought that, as part of my onboarding as ceo, that I should go on a listening tour.
Billy: That sounds like fun.
Lily: Oh, yeah. Mm-hmm. It was. I had back-to-back video chats with everybody that works there to find out what they do.
Billy: Okay, not so much fun. But a great way to familiarize yourself with the company.
Lily: Yeah, no, it’s great, but I barely made a dent because this is a massive conglomerate, right? Like, it’s a huge company.
Billy: Yeah, I am aware of that.
Lily: I mean, today alone, i spoke with the pharmaceutical division, engineering, construction.
Billy: Oh, you would look really good in a hard hat.
Lily: Yeah, mm-hmm.
Billy: Hey. You okay?
Lily: No, I’m — I’m overwhelmed, right? Like, this is overwhelming. I just — I don’t have the experience for this. You know, I mean, the press is gonna be all over my credentials, and I’m just wondering, like, what if this hurts chancellor industries? Or what if this reflects poorly on jill? Like, did I make a huge mistake?
[ Sighs ]
Dominic: [ Crying ]
Abby: [ Gasps ] Hi. Hi, my sweet boy.
[ Gasps ] Hello. Are you okay?
Chance: [ Chuckles ]
Abby: Is everything alright?
Chance: You want me to give it a try? I got to learn how to do this.
Abby: Alright, here you go. You want to go see dad?
Chance: Hey, big guy.
Abby: You got him?
Chance: Hey, big buddy. How you doing?
Abby: Hey, I’m gonna go grab a bottle.
Abby: Okay. [ Chuckles ]
Chance: Hey, buddy. How you doing? How you doing? Yeah. You know me? Yeah, it’s pretty cool up in here, isn’t it? Not bad. Look at you. Yeah.
Abby: I got the bottle. Look at you.
Chance: I’m kind of getting this down.
Abby: You want some?
Abby: You want a bottle?
Chance: Here you go, bud. Want some of that?
Abby: Ooh. You know, I have to admit that, before this moment, devon has been the only one to get him to calm down without feeding him. He’s got the magic touch. I guess so do you.
Chance: Yeah, well, I’m glad he’s been here for both of you.
Abby: Yeah. Yeah, he has been. He’s been there for dom, and he’s been concerned about me and you. He’s been the best friend i could hope for. He’s been there for our son. Hey. Hey, my guy. Hey. Hi. I love you.
Victoria: Why? Why are you threatening my husband? And why would you assume that he’s out to hurt me or take advantage of me, nicholas? So much for your promise to stay out of my personal life.
Nick: I was being honest — at his request.
Ashland: That’s true. I wanted to find out how he felt about things.
Victoria: What would be the advantage of that? Look, why? Why do you refuse to give ashland a chance to prove that he’s a different person now? People change, nicholas, and ashland is worthy of my love and my trust.
Nick: You don’t understand.
Victoria: Look, I can’t get into this right now. I have more immediate things on my mind. I’m guessing that you haven’t heart that chance is still alive, and he and abby are back home.
Victoria: He survived the explosion. And somehow, abby knew it, and she found him.
Ashland: That’s incredible.
Nick: Thank god.
Victoria: I know. So mom and dad are throwing them a welcome-home party tonight at the grand phoenix, and we should go. So I’m hoping that we can put aside this tension and just be there for chance and abby. Doesn’t your family deserve the best?
Nick: When did all this come about? The last I heard, jack and ashley were in spain, looking for abby. And the only reason I know that is ’cause I was at devon’s, talking to him, and then dad showed up.
Victoria: Look, the only reason I heard the news is because I ran into dad at crimson lights. I’m sure it wasn’t a personal slight. It all just happened very quickly.
Nick: Well, I’m trying not to think about dad right now.
Victoria: Nicholas, I’m so sorry that things have disintegrated between the two of you, but it feels like it’s — feels like it’s part of a pattern.
Nick: What kind of pattern?
Victoria: Just, sometimes, it — it seems like you blame others for what’s happening in your life when you’re the one who’s alienating those around you.
Nick: That’s how you see things?
Victoria: I’m just saying that you’re the one who always thinks that you’re in the right, and everybody else is wrong, but maybe you should take a look at yourself and ask yourself, “is there something that I’m doing that’s at the root of all this?
Nick: See you at the party.
Adam: I wouldn’t feel much sympathy for billy.
[ Cellphone rings ]
[ Sighs ] This is not great timing, but i have to answer this. Hey, uh, I’m in a meeting with sally right now. Can I call you back in a bit?
Chelsea: [ Scoffs ] Sure. Sure. You let me know when it’s convenient for you to hear about my plans and discuss our son.
Adam: And she hung up on me. Once again, I handled that perfectly.
Sally: Maybe call her back.
Adam: C-can you and I finish talking later?
Sally: Yeah. I’ll see you soon.
Lily: [ Sighs ]
Billy: I’m not used to seeing self-doubt on you. Hey, this isn’t easy, okay? There’s a lot going on right now in a short amount of time, and you just need to give yourself a little bit of a break and take a breath. I’ve said it before, but you are going to kill this, okay, and you are the most important thing and the most successful thing to come out of chanccomm.
Lily: Yeah, up until now.
Billy: That is my responsibility. And as far as your credentials go, you’re qualified. I believe that. I know my mother does. She would never risk her legacy or her company if she didn’t 100% believe in you.
Lily: I just don’t think that my experience matches up to the job I’m being asked to do.
Billy: You have a ton of work in marketing, okay? And let’s be honest, running a company like this, it’s all about positive public perception.
Lily: Are you just flattering me ’cause you love me?
Lily: [ Chuckles ]
Billy: And no. I’m flattering you because you deserve it. You earned this. You are, by far, the hardest-working entrepreneurial person that I know, and you made me a better man — in business and in a relationship. And you’re gonna be great. You really are, and I couldn’t be more happy or more proud of you.
Chance: [ Sighs ] Hey.
Abby: Hey. Are you sure you’re up for this?
Chance: Yeah, yeah, I think i can face the pressure of a champagne toast and a couple welcome-home hugs. Bring it on.
Abby: Okay. You know, everyone understands what you did. I mean, they understand why you had to do it.
Chance: Yeah, the last thing I wanted to was hurt anyone. But as long as I got you by my side, I think I can face anything.
Abby: Mm. Good.

Ashland: Well, I never thought I’d be the one to say this, but weren’t you being a little hard on your brother? It seems like nick wants to work things out. That’s why I asked him to come over and talk.
Victoria: I’m kind of stunned that you’re coming to his defense after the way that he treated you.
Ashland: Oh, well, I’ve been called a lot of things over the years, and nick’s not wrong about the things that I’ve done. I’m, frankly, more impressed with the love that you and your brother have for each other. It’s — it’s quite special.
Victoria: Who knew that one of your first duties as a newman would be to play family peacemaker?
Ashland: Well, after doing battle over all these years, it’s rather refreshing. Maybe death has changed my perspective on this.
Victoria: No, no, no, no. No talk about death. Not — not — just positive thoughts during this new treatment, okay? Are you sure that you’re up for a night with my family?
Ashland: If you want to go, so do I. Because wherever you are is where I want to be.
Lily: See, I love your support, but it just makes me want you by my side even more because we make a great team.
Billy: We do, and we’re gonna continue to make a great team in our relationship, but out there, you are the boss of chancellor…
Lily: [ Chuckles ]
Billy: …And I’m gonna be fine. I’m gonna land on my feet.
Lily: Does that mean that you dropped the idea you told me about earlier?
Billy: It’s still in the brainstorming stage. I laid a little bit of groundwork, but nothing much. But right now, the only thing i want to focus on is you, because I think we should advantage of this time we have together because you are about to be a very, very busy woman.
Victor: Jill is coming from a business meeting and she will be here soon and she’s picking up ashley on the way.

Victor: So beautiful.
Victoria: Thank you. Love you, mom.
Victor: Ashland, nice to see you.
Ashland: Nice to see you, sir.
Victoria: I let nicholas know about the party, but I’m not sure that he’s coming.
Nikki: Well, I hope that everybody will be able to set aside their differences for this very important occasion.
Abby: [ Sighs ]
