Devon: Thanks. You ready to go to abby’s?
Amanda: You can’t wait to sign these custody papers, can you?
Devon: I brought my own pen.
Amanda: Aww, look at you. Well, like I said, if there is anything that you want to amend or add, you just let me know, okay?
Devon: I wouldn’t want to change a word. It’s everything that I want. It’s time with my son in my home. And the best part of all of it is we don’t have to go to court.
Amanda: Yeah, it is always better to settle this as friends.
Devon: Absolutely. And I know this hasn’t been the easiest thing for abby, either. I’m hoping that after today, we can put everything behind us.
Amanda: I really hope that this is just a good start to the future. So you ready?
Devon: What are we waiting for? Let’s go.
Christine: Hey, you two. Hi.
Devon: I didn’t expect to see you here. You getting something to go?
Devon: You’re gonna be late for our meeting with abby and chance.
Christine: You didn’t get abby’s message?
Abby: I’m sorry I delayed our meeting with devon.
Chance: No, it’s okay. Take all the time you need.
Abby: It’s just — it really hit me. This is the moment of truth. Once we sign these papers, it can’t be undone.
Chance: Hey. Look at me. I know this is gonna be tough today. I know it. But I thought you were fully on board with sharing custody with devon. What do you need? Do you just need a minute to catch your breath or…are you having second thoughts about this whole thing?
Abby: [ Sighs ]
Billy: So what’s your day look like?
Lily: Um, I have back-to-back interviews followed by back-to-back meetings, and then somewhere in between all of that I have to figure out a way to go see devon.
Billy: Alright, should we synchronize our watches?
Lily: Uh, no, he’ll text me when he signs the custody papers, and then I’ll text you.
[ Telephone rings ] Hey, lori. What do you have for me? Oh, already? Uh…okay. I have the interview with the reporter from new york, so I’ll come find you when I’m done in your office.
Billy: You’re gonna be disappointed ’cause I’m not gonna be in there.
Lily: So, where are you gonna be?
Billy: I have some errands to do, and then there’s something else I need to take care of.
Lily: Like what?
Billy: You’ll find out soon enough.
Lily: Okay, bye.
[ Clears throat ] Hi, this is lily winters.
Phyllis: Hey. What brings you by the grand phoenix?
Jack: Well, I wanted to check and see if you’d made your travel arrangements for milan.
Phyllis: Yes, I’m leaving later today.
Jack: Wow, you’re not wasting any time.
Phyllis: I’m excited to see summer. I’m so excited. And like I told you, it’s just a fact-finding mission, right? So I know what this job holds before I make any major decisions.
Jack: Well, I guess the sooner you leave, the sooner you’ll have answers about your future.
Tessa: Oh, wow. You look amazing.
Mariah: Hey. It isn’t too much, is it? I don’t want to look too amazing for the adoption attorney.
Tessa: Uh, well, I’d give us a kid. Creative genius, corporate star — what’s not to love?
Mariah: Great, ’cause i really, really want to get this ball rolling.
Tessa: Oof, yeah.
Mariah: It’s odd.
Mariah: Well, I texted noah to see if he wanted to meet us for coffee, but he has not responded. I guess he’s busy with his new job.
Tessa: Yeah, must be it.
Mariah: What is that face?
Tessa: What face?
Mariah: The face you’ve been making for, like, a few days now, you know? The one where you’re freaking out inside and you don’t want me to find out because you’re afraid I’ll freak out — that face.
Tessa: Wow, that’s strangely specific.
Mariah: Do you have cold feet?
Tessa: Oh, no, no, no, i cannot wait to marry you.
Mariah: Adoption jitters?
Tessa: No, raising a child with you is gonna be the highlight of my life.
Mariah: Tessa, remember, we said no secrets.
Tessa: [ Sighs ] It’s about your brother. Our strength, our power, our purpose… getting ready for a special day? Spice things up at adoreme.Com. With bras and lingerie in sizes up to 4x.

Devon: What message from abby was I meant to get?
Christine: She sent a text asking for more time.
Devon: My phone was on silent.
Amanda: Okay, what are we talking about here? Is she just running behind schedule?
Devon: Or is she changing her mind about signing the agreement?
Christine: I don’t know anything more than you do. She just said time.
Abby: It just hurts, knowing that I’m not gonna be able to see my baby whenever I want, that there will be days when i can’t just take him for a walk or read him a bedtime story and tuck him in for the night. I’m gonna miss him so much.
Chance: I know. Hey. And I can’t promise you that it’s not gonna hurt every single time that he leaves, but what i can promise you is that we will get through this together, okay?
Abby: I am gonna miss him on a molecular level. I can’t relax when my baby isn’t around.
Chance: I mean, you didn’t answer my question earlier. Are you having second thoughts?
Abby: No. No, not second thoughts. I mean, dominic is just as much a part of devon as he is a part of me. And, I mean, how can I deny them the chance to share their lives and their love for each other?
Chance: Come here. You are a great mom. You know that? And even if dominic isn’t under this roof with us, he’s gonna know how much we love him. That’s never gonna change. Are you ready?
Christine: I know this situation must be disconcerting, but give them time and don’t jump to any conclusions.
Amanda: I’m sure with a baby in the house, there are a million minor emergencies.
Devon: Yeah, we understand life happens.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Amanda: Whoa, is this from abby?
Devon: Yeah, it is. She says that she’s ready for us.
Amanda: Okay, that’s great.
Amanda: Let’s do this.
Christine: Let’s go.
Phyllis: It’ll be lovely to see summer, spend time with her. Um…but, yeah, I don’t know what this job holds, so, uh, I’ll find out and then I’ll tell you all about it when we have dinner together.
Jack: I’ll look forward to that.
Phyllis: Me too.
Jack: Hey, nick.
Nick: Hey. I was hoping to find the manager of this place and throw some business her way.
Phyllis: Oh, okay. What do you need?
Nick: New hope has some big meetings coming up with some donors, and I thought it’d be nice to have a place that would handle the crowd, you know, something that would make them feel very comfortable about digging deep into their pockets and help keep us funded.
Phyllis: Yeah, for sure. Well, I’d love to help you.
Nick: Great. Uh…is everything alright?
Jack: You know what? I’ll check in with you later. See ya.
Nick: Yeah. I interrupt something?
Phyllis: No, not at all. I actually need to talk to you about something.
Nick: Alright. Is it about new hope?
Phyllis: No, it’s about me. I’m considering moving to milan and working with summer.
Mariah: Alright. I’m listening.
Tessa: Okay. Remember the other night when i popped out to get dinner?
Tessa: Well, I ran into noah, and he had been drinking alone.
Mariah: He said that he was meeting friends.
Tessa: Yeah, well, he came up with some excuse, but…
Mariah: Okay. Well, obviously something’s wrong. And I’ve been too caught up in my own life and our good news to pick up on that. Did he open up to you?
Tessa: Yes and no. Uh… [ Sighs ] I mean, he didn’t come out and say it, but he basically admitted that he still has feelings for me. But like I said, he had been drinking, and that heartbreak that he experienced in london was so bad that it made him leave the country, so it must’ve been pretty hellish.
Mariah: So what he said meant nothing?
Tessa: Well, I mean, what I’m saying is that his life is in major flux. And, you know, I think he was just nostalgic and caught up in the moment.
Mariah: What were the exact words that he used?
Tessa: Um, well, he brought up the engagement and that basically when you love someone, you want to be happy for them, and he said that he loved you, but…
Mariah: It was clear that he meant you.
[ Sighs ] So my brother is still in love with you. I brought in ensure max protein,
Chance: Sorry for the delay. We had a couple things we had to take care of, and time got the best of us.
Devon: Everything’s okay, though, right?
Chance: Yeah, yeah. Everything’s good.
Christine: Okay, well, we can get down to business as soon as abby’s ready.
Abby: Oh. Here I am.
Chance: Hey, bud.
Abby: Yeah, I just, um — i wanted to make sure that he had the perfect outfit on for this occasion.
Devon: Yeah, he looks perfect. I thought louise was taking him to his music and play class.
Abby: That was the plan, but I thought he should be here with his family. This is a big day for all of us.
Nick: Marketing at marchetti?
Phyllis: Yeah. It’s a great opportunity, and I’ll be working with my little girl. So that’ll be great. And living in milan — that’s a dream come true.
Nick: Uh…what about jack? I…I thought the two of you might be working your way back towards something.
Phyllis: Uh…jack and I are really good friends. He’s encouraging me to pursue this.
Nick: Well, I’m happy for you. Yeah, if this is what you want and you’re doing it for the right reasons.
Billy: Thanks for making this work. And welcome home. Ashley said your trip to europe was a success.
Jack: Yeah, it was a real coup, and most of the credit goes to kyle. He has really come into his own as a leader. I’m very proud of him.
Billy: That’s great.
Jack: You deserve a pat on the back, too.
Billy: Yeah, what’d I do?
Jack: Well, you stepped away from trying to destroy adam and you took this position of coo working with lily at chancellor. It’s a great decision for you and for chancellor.
Billy: Well, I guess all the abbotts are coming into their own. So if everything’s so great and you are trying triumphant about jabot, why does it look like you just lost your best friend?
Jack: [ Sighs ]
Tessa: Well, noah didn’t say specifically that he was in love with me.
Mariah: But he has big feelings for you.
Tessa: Well, I don’t think he ever intended to act on them. He said he was happy for us and he apologized and he said that it would never happen again, and he doesn’t want anything to come between the three of us. Say something.
Mariah: I know my brother. He doesn’t have a malicious bone in his body, so if he says that he’s happy for us, I believe him. So I’m — I’m not angry.
Tessa: You’re not?
Mariah: No. In fact, I — I kind of feel sorry for him. I mean, he came back from london with a broken heart, and then he started working with you on the album cover and then got tangled up in old feelings. And not to go all psych 101, but maybe he fixated on you because you’re out of reach, unattainable.
Tessa: Yeah, that’s possible, because he knows that I’m happily and irreversibly spoken for. Nothing could come of it.
Mariah: Well…that’s what i thought about my feelings for you way back when, and yet…
Tessa: Hey, that’s different. You are the love of my life. We’re getting married. We’re inevitable.
Mariah: Yes. We are.
Amanda: You now share custody of dominic with abby and chance.
Devon: This is amazing.
Abby: Yeah, it is.
Chance: Congrats, man.
Abby: I know, I know.
Christine: All we have to do is file these papers with the court and it’s official. And I just wanted to say how impressed I am that you managed to come together and handle this so smoothly.
Amanda: Yeah, dominic is so lucky to have so many people who love him.
Chance: I feel like we’re the lucky ones. We such a great little kid and a good friend.
Abby: [ Sighs ] Yeah.
Abby: We’re a family. Oh.
[ Laughter ] And now it’s official.
Christine: I have to get to my next client, but congratulations to everyone, and I’ll be in touch.
Devon: Thank you, christine.
Amanda: Thanks, christine.
Devon: Appreciate it.
Amanda: I’ll get this out of the way.
Devon: [ Chuckles ] Hey, guys, I just can’t thank you two enough for today.
Chance: Yeah, of course. It’s strange, isn’t it? Such a big decision, all that effort put into it, just wrapped up with a few signatures.
Devon: And I know it hasn’t been easy. I really do. And, abby, I know that it’s gonna take a while for us to get back to where we were, and it won’t be overnight.
Abby: I’m fine.
Devon: Well, that’s all I want.
Dominic: [ Babbles ]
Abby: I know.
Devon: Hey, can I hold you?
Abby: Want to go see dominic?
Devon: Do you mind?
Abby: Go see him?
Devon: Can I see you, buddy? Oh. Whoa, there you go. Hey, little man.
[ Chuckles ] This party, it’s all for you, buddy. We just made sure that you will always be a big part of all of our lives. That’s worth celebrating, huh? That’s right.
[ Chuckles ] Huh, buddy. You playing with me? I know, it’s a beard. You’re gonna have one one day, too.
[ Laughs ] Oh, man. I’ve been telling everyone…
Noah: Looks like you guys have turned crimson lights into your own personal living room.
Mariah: Uh, that’s the perks of living upstairs.
Tessa: Yeah, don’t be surprised if you can come and see us with our pjs on, lounging in a booth.
Noah: [ Chuckles ]
Mariah: So, what’s been keeping you busy?
Noah: I forgot to text you back.
Noah: I’m sorry. I’ve been doing all these projects for new hope, trying to impress the boss. I’m actually meeting dad here.
Mariah: Wow. A couple days in, you’re already sucking up to the boss.
Tessa: [ Chuckles ]
Noah: Yeah, you know, it’s good to take your job seriously sometimes. You should try it.
Mariah: Oh. Yeah, that’s very funny. I get it, ’cause I’m here and I’m not at work, but we actually have a very important appointment.
Tessa: Yes, with the adoption attorney. We’re starting the first steps in the process.
Noah: Good luck. I hope it goes well.
[ Cellphone rings ] If you will excuse me, we will talk later.
Mariah: It’s unavoidable.
Tessa: Really? If I didn’t know any better, nothing awkward happened. That was perfectly pleasant. Noah seemed totally normal. So everything’s gonna be fine, right?
Mariah: Totally. I mean, nothing has to change.
Devon: You trying to smile or you eating your hand?
Amanda: [ Laughs ] Yeah, I think he is.
Devon: [ Chuckles ] He’s smiling.
Chance: You know what? Since he missed his session this morning, we should probably schedule him another music class for the week.
Devon: Yeah, how’s he liking that class?
Abby: Oh, he loves it. I mean, you should see his face light up when I sing the songs and do the little hand motions like the instructor.
Devon: Oh, man. Is there a place where I can download any of that music? ‘Cause I’d love to hear the songs he likes.
Chance: Yeah, yeah, we’ll get you a link, man.
Devon: Appreciate it.
Amanda: Or maybe you can tag along with abby and chance one day.
Devon: I wouldn’t want to impose on you guys like that.
Abby: No, no imposition. Actually, I was talking to louise, and she said that she be more than happy to help at your place, you know, on the days that dominic’s with you, if you’re open to it.
Devon: Oh, of course, absolutely. I think that’s a good idea. It’d be good for him to see a familiar face when he stays with us.
Chance: Should we talk overnight stay arrangements?
Devon: We don’t have to do that right now. I can call you guys later on and we can go through it all.
Chance: Yeah, whatever works for y’all.
Abby: Yeah, I bet he’ll adjust more quickly to this back-and-forth than all of us.
Chance: Yeah, he’s a tough little dude. He’s gonna be just fine.
Devon: Yeah, he is. Well, I’ll see you soon, okay? You have a good night and you be good. Alright?
Chance: Thank you, man.
Devon: Oh, yeah.
Chance: I got you, boy. What’s up, cowboy?
Devon: I’m the one that needs to thank you guys for giving me this beautiful gift of family.
Jack: Phyllis has decided to move to milan to work with summer, so, yeah, I guess I’m gonna have a bit of a hole in my life.
Billy: You know, when she and nick broke up, I got the sense that you were hoping that the two of you would get back together.
Jack: We could never get things on track. I don’t know, maybe that’s a good thing. Even with the best of intentions, we could never really sustain things, and that’s — don’t take that the wrong way, that’s not a dig.
Billy: It’s hard not to take it as one. What is it about phyllis that creates such chaos and conflict but at the same time inspiring passion and devotion?
Jack: That is a question for the ages. She is one beautiful conundrum. I just heard something amazing!
“The young and the restless”
Lily: Congratulations! Oh, my god, I’m so happy for you.
Devon: Thank you.
Lily: How do you feel?
Devon: Oh. How do I feel? It’s — it’s very difficult to put it into words. If I had to pick one emotion, it’d be joy.
Lily: Well, welcome to parenthood.
Devon: Yeah, I’mma be coming to you for advice.
Lily: Well, I’m very ready and willing to help you, but, I mean, dom isn’t even talking or walking yet, so just cherish this time with him before things get crazy, you know? Don’t worry about the future. Just cherish the present.
Devon: I know. That sounds like something neil would tell me. I used one of his pens to sign the papers.
Lily: Wow, devon.
Devon: I really, really wish that he could be here and dominic, too. I feel like we should all be together to celebrate today.
Lily: Well, you have me.
Devon: I know I do, and that means the world to me, too. I was thinking earlier about when dru and neil officially brought me into your family and just how proud they were and that feeling of becoming a son to two incredible people like that. Changed my whole life. It gave me a life. I have some pretty big shoes to fill.
Lily: You will. There’s no doubt in my mind.
Devon: Thank you.
Nick: Well, our daughter is gonna love working with you again. And who knows? Maybe a change of scenery is exactly what you need right now.
Phyllis: Oh, is it? Is that what I need? You jumping on the “you should leave” bandwagon. Seems like everybody just wants me to leave town, except for amanda and michael. They actually want me to stay. Maybe they’re my only really good friends. Who knows? Ah, great. Is that for me?
Jack: No, actually, this is for harrison. I forgot to give it to him when I was in milan. I found it in my luggage when i unpacked. Um, would you mind delivering it?
Phyllis: Oh, I’d be happy to. Sure.
Nick: I’m gonna go. Um…have a great trip. Eventually, I know you’re gonna find whatever it is that you’re looking for.
Phyllis: Thank you. I plan to.
Jack: Was that a good conversation?
Phyllis: Oh, yeah, it was great. He’s very supportive of my — my move.
Jack: You don’t sound too enthusiastic.
Phyllis: Because I’m not. Tell me to stay. Tell me I’m wanted. Tell me I’m needed. Tell me you still love me. Tell me we have a future together like we’re supposed to.
Jack: Phyllis? Hey. Phyllis? Is everything alright?
Noah: So, the project we were talking about.
Nick: Which one? We’ve been talking about a lot of them.
Noah: The one turning vacant lots into urban parks and community gardens. I got in touch with that guy you said was a marvel at writing grant applications, and he’s gonna point me in the right direction to some foundations for funding.
Noah: And the icing on the cake is I finally got ahold of that landscape architect you were talking about, and we’re meeting up later this week.
Nick: Well, this is some next-level dedication. You are working hard. So hard, one might assume you are trying to, I don’t know, not deal with something or someone.
Noah: I thought you’d be happy to have such a go-getter on the job.
Nick: Look, this is your dad talking now, and, you know, you said something like you made a mistake by being too human. Does that have anything to do with tessa or the feelings that are bubbling up again for you? You okay?
Noah: Yeah, yeah, it’s nothing a cup of coffee can’t fix. Can I get you anything?
Nick: Yeah, as long as you’re buying.
Noah: [ Chuckles ] Hey, can I get anybody anything? Refill, muffin, brownie? It’s my treat.
Tessa: I’ll join you. Maybe something will scream my name.
Mariah: [ Chuckles ]
Noah: I got kind of a weird vibe from you guys earlier, and then just now, with the looks between the two of you. You told her, didn’t you?
[ Sighs ] You mind telling me what possessed you to do that? I’m steve.
Lily: So, I’ve already been batting around some ideas for dom’s room.
Devon: For dom’s room?
Devon: You don’t waste time, do you?
Lily: Nope. Okay, honest opinions.
Lily: What about this one?
Devon: I like that.
Devon: Yeah. That’s not bad at all.
Devon: Yeah. I love it. That should be his room.
Lily: That’s the one?
Devon: That’s the one.
Devon: I like it.
Lily: Spoken like a dad who knows his son.
Devon: I want to have a — a sound system in his room, too, ’cause abby and chance are getting me the playlist from his music appreciation class…
Devon: …And moses has these jazz lullabies that neil gave him that he said he used to play all the time.
Lily: Aww. Okay. Yeah, I’ll look into it for you.
Devon: Thank you.
Lily: Alright, good. I’m glad you like that one.
Lily: Hi! Oh, there’s the best lawyer in town.
Amanda: Aww, you’re just saying that because it’s true.
Lily: It is true, yeah.
Devon: It is very, very, very true.
Amanda: Aww. You see why I keep him around?
Devon: Have we, um — did we get everything taken care of?
Amanda: Um, yeah. I filed the papers with the courts. I know it was already final in our hearts, but we had to make it legit with the state.
Devon: Yeah, I know. We’re one step closer to that. I don’t know how I would have gotten through all this without you.
Amanda: I’m just excited to start this next chapter, and I’m looking forward to this adventure with you and little dominic.
[ Doorbell rings ] Ohh. You expecting someone?
Devon: I’m not, no.
Lily: Uh, no. I am, actually.
Devon: [ Chuckles ] Take a look at what lily —
Amanda: What is this?
Devon: It’s lily’s design for the room.
Lily: Hi, honey.
Devon: Who is that?
Billy: Hey! Now it’s a party!
Devon: Hey, man.
Billy: Amanda, devon, congratulations.
Amanda: That is a lot of champagne.
Billy: That one’s to celebrate right now. This one is for you to hold on to for a few decades, until dominic graduates college or joins you at hamilton-winters, whatever. But now you have something to celebrate this amazing day.
Devon: That is very, very kind of you. Thank you, man.
Lily: Yeah, it’s a special day.
Devon: It is. Have you spoken to abby at all yet?
Billy: I left her a message, but I, uh, haven’t heard back from her yet.
Lily: But everything went well when you were at their place, right?
Devon: Yeah, it did.
Amanda: Yeah, they were — they were great about everything.
Billy: Good. I’m glad to hear that.
Amanda: Well, I’m gonna go and get some glasses for this champagne.
Amanda: Oh, and, um, just to let you know, I have dibs on the first toast for dominic.
Lily: Hey, no problem.
Devon: You got it.
[ Laughter ] Thank you guys.
Abby: Is he sleeping?
Chance: Yeah. I think all the excitement wore him out.
Abby: That makes two of us.
Chance: Hey. I’m really proud of the way you handled that today.
Abby: It was pretty intense, but I was fine.
Chance: My, uh, hand’s still a little numb. Don’t really have any feeling in it.
Abby: Sorry about that.
Chance: No, no. It’s okay. I’m glad you know you can hold on to me as tight as you want.
Abby: Thank you. And I hope you know it goes both ways.
Abby: Is there anything I can do for you?
Chance: Well, you know what? Now that you mention it, I think there is.
Abby: Ah. What is that?
Chance: Let me take you out on a date next time devon takes him. You know what? In fact, let’s make it a tradition. Somewhere spectacular one week, and the next week, we can kick back, you know, binge a show, take some of those cooking classes you were talking about. Yeah.
Abby: [ Laughs ]
Chance: Let me make up for all that lost time I missed out on. I think it’ll be really good for us.
Abby: It sounds perfect.
Tessa: Look, I had to tell mariah what happened, but i didn’t do it to hurt you or embarrass you.
Noah: Then why mention it? I said when you love someone, you want to see them happy, and I love my sister. Alright? You misunderstood.
Tessa: Did I?
Noah: [ Sighs ] Tess, there — there was nothing to tell. Which is why I thought we agreed to forget about this and move on.
Tessa: Look, it’s not that simple, okay? Mariah could tell something was up. And more than once, secrets have almost ruined our relationship. And, look, that woman over there means more to me than anything. And I am not willing to jeopardize that, especially now that we’re getting married and starting a family.
Noah: Tessa, I am no threat to your relationship.
Tessa: I know. And now we’re all on the same page.
Noah: I can only imagine what she thinks of me now. She probably wants my head on a silver platter.
Tessa: No, she understands, just like I did.
Noah: [ Sighs ]
Tessa: Noah, look, I — i understand why this might be difficult for you to talk about, but it’s just better to keep it all out in the open. We all want the same thing — for things to go back the way they were before.
Noah: Big, happy family.
Tessa: Hey. Maybe we’ll all look back at this and —
Noah: And laugh? That’s doubtful.
Tessa: I’m sure that you need some time to process this. But I hope you’re okay with it because mariah and I are.
Noah: [ Sighs ]
Allergies with nasal congestion
Jack: Well, I have a meeting I have to run to, so this is probably the last we’ll see of each other before you go.
Phyllis: Thank you for stopping by.
Jack: I hope you have a safe trip, and like nick, I hope you find what you’re looking for.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ]
Jack: If I can do anything…
Phyllis: Yes, uh, you can do something.
[ Sighs ]
Jack: Go ahead.
Phyllis: Never mind.
Jack: Well, I look forward to our dinner together when you get back.
Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Thank you. Bye.
Jack: Take care.
Phyllis: Tsk. Hello. I need a car. Grand phoenix hotel.
[ Inhales sharply ] Genoa city airport.
Tessa: Look, I’m no expert on relationships, but this, too, shall pass, right? My life with mariah is about to become bigger and more wonderful than I even deserve, and I don’t want you to think that you can’t be a part of that. This kid is gonna need his uncle noah, and I just know that the right woman is out there waiting for you.
Tessa: Mariah, we should get our birth certificates and passports before we meet with the adoption guru.
Mariah: I almost forgot. Yes, let’s do it.
Nick: Well, good luck with everything.
Mariah: Thank you. Alright, bye, nick. Bye, noah.
Noah: See ya.
Nick: Right. What was that?
Noah: Nothing. Everything is cool. Oh, phone is on vibrate.
[ Clicking ] Dude. Ah, that’s perfect.
Nick: Something important?
Noah: Yeah. A buddy of mine just flew into town. We keep trying to make plans to hang out with each other, but they keep falling through. But he has a couple hours free right now, so I should probably fly, if that’s cool with you.
Nick: Of course. See ya.
Noah: I’ll catch you later.
Chance: Hey, you barely ate anything this morning. You hungry? I’m whipping up some lunch.
Abby: Yeah, I could go for that.
Chance: Alright. When I get back, we’ll throw around some ideas for date night.
Abby: Yeah. Sounds nice.
[ Sighs ] Mom. Hey. Have time for an update? Everything went according to plan. No, um — no, I’m not crying. I’m not crying. It’s just I — I wanted to hear your voice.
[ Sighs ] It was the hardest thing that i have ever done. But I know it’s the right thing to do.
Lily: Okay, here’s a gift for you and the baby.
Lily: I hope you like it.
Billy: It’s a memory book.
Lily: Oh, my gosh, let him open it.
Devon: It’s a book.
[ Chuckles ]
Lily: [ Chuckles ] No, it’s cute. You can put all of his pictures in there and list all of his milestones. So, when he first says your name or first walk, he gets his first tooth.
