Amanda: Ah, that was some night, wasn’t it?
Phyllis: Oh, it sure was.
Amanda: It was such a beautiful wedding.
Phyllis: It was beautiful.
Amanda: It really was, but i do wish I had more time to catch up with you at the reception.
Phyllis: I know. We missed our time together, right? But I like this one-on-one time. I like this, you know, without lookie-loos, you know, wondering what we’re talking about and want to be part of our group.
Ashley: Pardon me for interrupting.
[ Sighs ] What are you trying to pull?
Phyllis: Uh, excuse me?
Ashley: I know what you’ve done. And given your history, how could you let this happen?
Kyle: Morning. You rarely sleep this late.
Jack: Yeah, it was a late night.
Kyle: What time did you finally get in?
Summer: I should probably warn you guys that harrison has already licked the icing off of a cinnamon roll or two, so he’s gonna have some energy to spare. We should probably head to the park soon.
Kyle: Yeah, let’s do it. But should we talk to dad first?
Jack: About what?
Summer: We had some news that we wanted to run by you.
Kyle: We, um, may have found of way to stay in genoa city.
Victoria: You having a little breakfast?
Victoria: Well, I’ll leave you to it, then.
Ashland: No, no, actually, uh, I-I think I’m done, so, uh, I was just leaving anyway.
Victoria: Ashland, wait.
Chloe: You have to stop.
Esther: Stop what? Being a doting grandma to bella? I don’t understand what I did wrong.
Chloe: That’s the problem. You’ve done everything right. You do too much for the kids. You’re always baking them cookies and doing bella’s homework.
Esther: Oh, well, I just gave her some hints. Some of that stuff is not easy.
Chloe: But being a grandma shouldn’t be a full-time job. I am so grateful that you are such a huge presence in the kids’ lives. They love you so much, and i love you, too. But, for example, you baked enough cookies for the entire school district. I mean, you must have been up all night.
Esther: Well, the kids like them, and I have fun doing that kind of thing.
Chloe: I’m just saying that you’ve worked so hard your whole life, and I think you deserve to kick back. After all these years, it’s esther time.
This is the story of two homes.
provided by… eggland’s best.
Jack: I am eager to hear how it is possible you could move back here. I would like nothing better than for the two of you and harrison to be here all the time.
Kyle: [ Chuckles ]
Summer: Now that we brought it up, I’m not sure.
Kyle: We may want to keep the details to ourselves, but we just wanted to let you know it might be a possibility.
Jack: However it works out, I am wholeheartedly supportive.
Summer: We might remind you of that down the line.
Jack: [ Chuckles ]
Summer: I do have one favor to ask. Please don’t mention it to my mom yet. I don’t want her to get her hopes up and then it doesn’t work out.
Jack: No problem. Can I ask why it is you’re exploring this possibility now?
Kyle: As nice as italy is, we miss our family and friends.
Summer: Especially you… and my family.
Jack: Well, I think I can speak for everyone in saying we all want you back.
Kyle: And harrison misses his father.
Kyle: What is it? Is there something about ashland we should know?
Jack: Well, I’ve wanted to tell you, but you’ve been dealing with your mother lately. Now I have to tell you because this does affect harrison’s future.
Ashland: If there’s something you would like to talk about, i would certainly welcome the chance.
Victoria: All I wanted to say was that, um — that you left a few things at the house, so i had them boxed up.
Ashland: Okay, well, thank you for that. I will stop by to pick them up, at your convenience.
Victoria: Or you could send someone.
Victoria: You probably shouldn’t be carrying anything too heavy, putting too much weight on your ankle.
Ashland: Oh, yeah, well, there’s some, uh, residual pain, but I can handle it. Is your knee any better?
Victoria: It’s okay. However, I won’t be playing soccer anytime soon.
Ashland: [ Chuckles ] Well, I’m hoping to kick the ball around a little bit with harrison myself soon.
Victoria: I heard that he and kyle and summer are here.
Ashland: Yeah, yeah, I’ve already had some time with them. It’s wonderful. J-just so you know, I don’t see any reason to leave town while harrison is here.
Victoria: I understand.
Ashland: Okay, um, I guess, uh, I should be going, then.
Victoria: Okay. Bye.
[ Clears throat ]
Esther: Oh, thanks, honey. You know, I’ve never been good at sitting back, relaxing, and focusing on myself.
Chloe: Exactly. You already do so much for everyone, and there are only so many times that you can clean the knobs on the oven. At some point, you need to put down the feather duster. Remember mrs. C’s book, “I’m going to live till I die”?
Esther: Oh, of course.
Chloe: You need to live.
Esther: I do live.
Chloe: I just mean, isn’t there something that you want to do for yourself? Like, you could go back to community theater or start a wellness or food blog. I mean, you learned so much, whipping up all those smoothies for mrs. C. And making those heart-healthy meals for jill. I just think that you have so much knowledge to pass on.
Esther: Oh, I don’t know. I mean, I-I like to cook, but i just want to do it for people that I care about. And you know how I feel about the theater. I mean, I adore it. But I’ll never top my role in “streetcar.” It was the pinnacle of my acting career. And I — I just want to remember it that way and go out on the top. You know?
Esther: But… I might have, uh, one idea.
Chloe: Yeah? Great. Spill it.
Phyllis: I don’t know how you found out about this, but, honestly, it’s none of your business.
Ashland: It affects everybody in my family, phyllis.
Phyllis: Okay, I know you abbotts are tight-knit, but don’t you think that’s an exaggeration?
Ashley: Okay, don’t dismiss me, please. Why are you letting diane stay at your hotel?
Phyllis: Oh. Oh, diane. Oh, okay. Listen, I mean, I get why you’re upset, but aren’t you exaggerating? I mean, isn’t this an overreaction?
Amanda: Okay, I’m sorry to interrupt, but I feel a little out of the loop. Who is diane?
Phyllis: Diane is the worst person in the world.
Ashley: And yet you’re rolling out the red carpet for her. Is business really that bad?
Phyllis: First of all, business is great here. And second, I was providing a safe harbor.
Ashley: Mm, what are you doing?
Phyllis: Diane is here so i can keep an eye on her. Okay? She has a tendency to want to gallivant all over the city. You know, I wanted to keep her here before jack had a chance to tell kyle she was alive. I had to escort her to her room twice. But now everybody knows. Cat’s out of the bag. So I asked her to leave the hotel. Hopefully, she’ll be leaving the city, as well.
Ashley: So happy to hear it. Sooner she’s out of our lives, the better. We both know my brother has a bad habit of forgiving women that he shouldn’T.
Phyllis: Okay, when it comes to diane, we’re on the same side, ashley. Let’s just keep it at that. I’m steve, I lost 138 pounds in nine months on golo
Chloe: Really? Now, mom, you want your first project to be a man?
Esther: Don’t act so surprised. It’s never too late to find love.
Chloe: Agreed. But, you know, there are a lot of sketchy guys out there.
Esther: Ah, yeah, well, I’ve seen my fair share through mrs. C. And jill’s torturous love affairs. And my own dating past is…
Chloe: Checkered, at best.
Esther: Yeah, well, jill would always say that my bad taste in men is legendary.
[ Chuckles ]
Katherine: Brock was asking about tiny earlier.
[ Soft, dramatic music plays ]
Esther: Don’t mention that name to me.
Katherine: Uh, then you’ve had no further conversation with him?
Esther: Of course not. He doesn’t care about me or the baby.
Katherine: Yes, I realize it looks that way.
Esther: It is that way!
Katherine: Well, brock has gone to see him, though, dear, for the last time.
Esther: It won’t do any good.
Katherine: Esther, please, i mean, we can hope for maybe positive results.
Esther: Wishing — wishing won’t make it happen. I’ve given up on that.
Katherine: But brock has a wonderful way with people. Don’t you understand? Possibly he can get through to this man.
Esther: [ Sighing ] Oh. I just hope — I hope the baby’s a girl. I don’t want anything to remind me of tiny!
Katherine: Whether it is a boy or a girl, he is still the child’s father. Now, that’s a fact, esther — an undeniable fact.
Esther: You know that woman on television that leanna loves? Oh, boy, she is so right. Men — men are just no good!
[ Thunder crashes ] I hate them, too!
Jill: Esther, where have you been? Why haven’t you returned my phone calls?
Esther: Oh, roger made it worthwhile to leave everything on vibrate.
Jill: [ Sighs ] You are gonna regret every moment you’ve spent with that con man.
Esther: Nothing you say will make me doubt my husband.
Jill: Your husb– you did it? You married him?
Esther: Yes, and it was so romantic.
Jill: God. Well, I don’t doubt it. He’s had a lot of practice.
Esther: Oh, god. What does that mean?
Jill: It means that roger says “I do” for a living, esther. He’s a bigamist.
Katherine: Come on, dear. There’s no need to cry over broken dishes. So sit down, sit down.
Esther: You don’t understand, mrs. C. This is the only job that i have.
Katherine: Well, you’re right. I really don’t understand. Not for a minute.
Esther: This is the only place in town that would hire me.
Katherine: Well, why were you even looking, esther? You have money. You know that.
Esther: You see, I met this man.
Katherine: Oh, my god, esther.
Esther: Oh, he was unbelievable. He was so thoughtful, he was so caring.
Esther: We spent lots of time together. So, when he suggested that we go to vegas, I thought he meant get married.
Katherine: And did he?
Esther: I don’t know. It wasn’t the only reason. That’s for sure. Because, when we got there, he started playing the slot machines, and then he started gambling at the tables, losing money left and right. He said that his luck would change, but… then it was gone. Poof, just like that.
Katherine: He lost all of your money?
Esther: And then he just disappeared. Oh, well, there are bad men out there, but there are some good ones, too.
Chloe: I appreciate your optimism, but dating is very different these days. I mean, do you even know how people go about it now?
Esther: Dating apps? Yeah, I — yeah, I’ve been on them for a while.
Chloe: [ Chuckles ] You have?
Esther: Yeah, I told you. Don’t you remember?
Chloe: Uh, no, you haven’t mentioned dating in a while.
Esther: Well, that’s because I haven’t found anyone special. But I came across this new app that’s geared toward seniors. I haven’t had many responses, but I think my, uh, profile needs work.
Chloe: I can help you rewrite it. I mean, it’s kind of right up my alley. Show me what you got.
Esther: Okay. Well, I, um — I started out with my work history, uh, “keeping the grand katherine chancellor’s home in order.” Um, isn’t that what the kids called a humblebrag.
Chloe: And I think it’s what they called a mistake. We need to go bigger. Much bigger.
Ashley: It’s kind of strange, isn’t it? You and I being allies?
Phyllis: Well, you know what they say. “My enemy’s enemy is my friend.”
Ashley: Right. So, you’re saying that diane being here is actually uniting us in some weird way?
Phyllis: I mean, yeah?
Phyllis: I was having a conversation with my actual friend. Sorry, amanda.
Amanda: Oh, no, it’s okay.
Phyllis: You know, I don’t know if I have room for another bff, honestly. But, um, I will tell you that diane being back in town has made me reexamine some of my feelings.
Ashley: Hmm, yeah, I admit, my brain has gone to some pretty dark places that I haven’t been in a while.
Phyllis: Yeah, me too. But we have a common goal, to protect jack, right?
Ashley: And kyle.
Phyllis: And kyle, of course. My daughter. I don’t want them all getting sucked in to diane’s web.
Ashley: Yeah, kyle is very vulnerable. He needs us to protect him.
Phyllis: Definitely, and I’ll do that. So you don’t mind if I get, you know, sort of close to members of your family, do you?
Ashley: Honestly… I think I could handle just about anything if it gets diane out of our lives. Really. As a matter of fact, if she gives you any problems getting out of here, just call me. I will help you roust her.
Phyllis: We have a deal.
Ashley: Okay. I’m sorry again for interrupting.
Amanda: No, it’s fine.
Amanda: Bye. Okay, now you have me dying of curiosity. You need to tell me about diane.
Kyle: Ashland doesn’t have cancer?! He — he sat harrison down! He told him he was sick!
Jack: I-I know.
Summer: It’s so evil. It’s disgusting. I mean, how long have you known? I can’t believe no one in my family told me.
Jack: I’m sure they planned to tell you. Their original purpose was to keep ashland from creating any more havoc.
Summer: I can’t even imagine how victoria must feel. I mean, to be emotionally manipulated like that? She loved him so much.
Jack: That’s got to be quite a blow. The marriage has been annulled. Ashland is no longer involved with newman-locke, and in fact, the company is now going by its old name.
Summer: Okay, I’m happy to hear that, at least, but still, the way that he used victoria. I mean, and all of us.
Kyle: Yeah, he preyed on our sympathies. And he pretended to be noble about harrison, when, really, he just wanted him out of town so he could exploit his fake illness to make a move on newman. That — that’s beyond twisted! And when I think about us reassuring harrison about his terminally ill father, and he was never even sick, I mean, who does that to their own son!
[ Sighs ] My mother. She did almost the same thing to me.
[ Sighs ] When you really need to sleep.
Phyllis: Um, I was accused of murdering diane once. This time, I may just follow through.
Amanda: Phyllis, I don’t think that we should joke about something like that.
Phyllis: Mm-hmm. We shouldn’t joke.
Phyllis: I’m just gonna say, last time, the whodunit list was so long because every single person in town wanted that bitch gone. Now I’m really nervous because she’s completely obsessed with kyle, and now she set her sights on jack. I mean, it’s like she believes that she deserves jack and kyle back in her life because she’s reformed, which is a lie. She wants them tied up in a tiny little bow as a gift to her.
Amanda: I think that we both know that jack is smart enough to see through whatever diane is doing. So is there some other reason why you’re so worked up?
Phyllis: Let me tell you something. My relationship with jack has progressed.
Amanda: So, you’re no longer his wedding plus-one?
Phyllis: No, I mean, it’s progressed. Not a little, a lot, last night, and it was amazing.
Amanda: Oh, wow, that’s so great. I mean, phyllis, I really thought that that ship had sailed.
Phyllis: No, that ship is right where it needs to be.
Jack: There you are. I was wondering where you were.
Allie: Yeah, I just went out for a run. There’s been a lot of bustle with a little kid around.
Jack: I hope all the chaos hasn’t driven you crazy.
Allie: Oh, no, no, no, no. I didn’t mean it like that. I actually went out for a celebration run.
Jack: Oh? What are we celebrating?
Allie: Well, I just got my final grades back, and I did way better than I thought.
Jack: Oh, that is fantastic. You know, you’re giving me lots of fodder to do more family bragging that I’m apparently famous for.
Allie: [ Laughs ] Listen, uh, jack, I have been thinking. I don’t have school to go back to now, and [Inhales deeply], Well, my plans have kind of changed since my father passed away. I was wondering, would it be okay if I stayed for a couple more days?
Jack: It would be more than okay. You can stay as long as you like. We would love to have you here.
Allie: Thank you.
[ Chuckles ]
Jack: How can I make you feel more comfortable? I was thinking we could have a little social something — a cocktail party, a dinner party, invite some people more your age.
Allie: I appreciate that. I really do appreciate that, but I’m okay. I am used to burying myself all day in a lab, so…
Ashley: Now, that sounds like me.
[ Laughter ]
Kyle: Why don’t you go play with the ducks, and we’ll be right there?
[ Sighs ] So glad everything going on doesn’t seem to be affecting him.
Summer: He seems as happy as can be.
Kyle: I hope it stays that way.
Summer: It will, because we will make sure that it does. You and I are going to protect him.
Kyle: One thing he needs protecting from is the situation with my mother. Have you thought any more about it?
Summer: I just can’t forget the look in her eyes when she faced off with my mom at the wedding — a wedding she crashed, by the way.
Kyle: Hmm. Your mom has made no bones about wanting my mother to disappear from all of our lives.
Summer: I’m worried that she wants more from you than just your forgiveness. I think you need to be careful. I know how much you miss your mom, and I think that she knows it, too. She shouldn’t take advantage of that.
Kyle: Mm-hmm, I hear you, and I’m on guard emotionally. I’m not about to let my defenses down when it comes to her. But I still need time.
Summer: Hmm. We have a lot to consider, big decisions to make. And we’ll just —
Ashland: Hey! Come here. There he is.

“The young and the restless”
Amanda: You know, after everything you just told me, i think, instead of throwing diane off of a bridge, maybe you should think about thanking her.
Phyllis: Why would I thank diane for anything?
Amanda: Because I think that her arrival helped move things along with jack.
Phyllis: No, it didn’T. Getting together with jack has absolutely nothing to do with diane. It’s based on our bond and our feelings for each other, born from, you know, mutual respect and — and admiration. I mean, it’s nice to have somebody who gets you, you know, and somebody who will tell you that you’re out of line.
Amanda: Okay, well, I’m on board. You know that I am. So if this is what you want — and it sounds like it is — then hold on to it. Don’t let anyone or anything take it away from you.
Phyllis: Oh, believe me, I won’T.
Ashley: So, tell me, what does it entail to get a degree in chemical engineering these days?
Allie: Well, you have nine engineering courses, four math courses, two physics, a general chem, general bio, and then, oh, orgo — organic chemistry.
Ashley: Oh, my god.
Allie: That’s a little bit.
Ashley: Okay, that’s really impressive. You should be so proud of yourself.
Allie: Thank you.
Jack: And she just got her grades back, and they were terrific.
Ashley: Wow. Sounds like you’ve got a great foundation.
Jack: So, before you came in, I was talking to her about the fact that her studies are over now, and I’m a little worried she might get bored.
Ashley: Wait a second. Are you saying that me talking about chemistry is actually boring to you today.
Allie: It is not, to me.
[ Laughter ]
Jack: I would love to do something for you socially, though, really.
Allie: Jack, thank you. I appreciate that, but i honestly just don’t need any more attention centered around me. Last night, I met plenty of wonderful people at the wedding.
Ashley: Who did you meet?
Allie: Mariah and tessa, of course.
Ashley: Don’t they just seem like they’re made for each other?
Allie: They do. And then I met summer. She was the one who talked me into going to the wedding. She’s fantastic. And then I met some of her family — faith, nick, and then — oh, and then I met noah at both the wedding and the coffeehouse.
Ashley: Alright, now, noah — I heard that he’s working with nick, right?
Jack: Yeah, he is.
Allie: He told me that he’s an artist.
Jack: Uh, yeah, he’s a bit of a rolling stone. I don’t know how long he’s gonna be in genoa city this time, even if he says he’s here for good. Uh, oh, gee, I got to get out of here, ladies. There’s someplace I need to be. Everybody good here?
Ashley: I think we’re okay, jack.
Ashley: [ Chuckles ]
Ashland: I am so glad that i ran into all of you.
[ Chuckles ] Uh, d-do you think that I could, uh, take over for a bit, maybe have a little father-son time with harrison?
Summer: That is not going to happen.
Kyle: Uh, hey, buddy, I think those kids over there might want to play. Why don’t you go over there, and we’ll watch you? Yeah? We know what you did, and it changes everything. We don’t want you anywhere near harrison.
Chloe: First of all, I’m ixnaying the whole job description.
Esther: Yeah, but I was a housekeeper for many years. It’s a big part of who I am.
Chloe: You were so much more than a maid to kay and jill. If anything, you should call yourself A… high-level peacekeeper, because that’s what you really were in the chancellor house.
[ Sighs ]
[ Dramatic music plays ] Well, good morning. Are we all in our places with sunshiny faces?
Jill and katherine: Shut up, esther.
Esther: Oh, yeah, well, it wasn’t the most serene workplace environment, but I’m not gonna exaggerate for effect.
Chloe: If anything, we’re underplaying it.
Esther: You know, I know that you’ve had issues in the past about my job. I mean, I’ve had insecurities about it myself. I-I once pretended to be wealthy to impress a man, but I’m never doing that again. I-I worked for mrs. C. For a very long time, and I’m proud of it. I-I was proud to be needed.
Chloe: All I’m saying is that it doesn’t hurt to fluff things up a bit. Everyone’s doing it.
Esther: So, you’re still disappointed, what I did for a living.
Chloe: [ Inhales deeply ]
Esther: I like being a maid. I live in a beautiful home. Jill’s a pain, but I could never leave mrs. Chancellor.
Chloe: Why not?
Esther: She needs me. And she’s been very good to both of us, letting you live there when you were a baby.
Chloe: And shipping me off to a boarding school.
Esther: How could you be so ungrateful. That school was outrageously expensive. If it wasn’t for mrs. C., You wouldn’t have gotten such an incredible education. Instead of being a stylist, you might have wound up cleaning toilets, too.
Chloe: But don’t you want more, mom?
Esther: I’m happy with my life. I like what I do. Might not be glamorous, but —
Chloe: It’s pathetic. And if you want to live the rest of your life like a loser, then go ahead. I’m not doing it. I refuse to. I have zero issues with your career choice, and I’m embarrassed about how I spoke to you that way. I’d like to think that we’ve come a long way since then.
Esther: We have. And whatever differences we’ve had in the past, it doesn’t change how much I love you and what the woman katherine tina valentine has become.
Esther: I love you, honey.
Chloe: I love you so much, mom. Want more from your vitamin brand?
Ashley: So, what are your plans? What are you gonna do with your degree?
Allie: I am not totally sure.
Ashley: Listen, I completely understand. I know from experience that your 20s can be a little tricky.
Allie: Yeah, yeah. Um, I got to make some decisions, too, though. Usually, I like to have plans and then stick to them.
Ashley: That’s exactly like me, too.
Ashley: Yes, I like everything to be set in stone and then just laid out.
Allie: Yes, exactly.
Ashley: But what’s that saying, “man makes plans, and god laughs”? Life just gets in the way sotitimememememe
Allie: I am learning that thehehehehe hard way.
Ashley: Aww. You must be dealing with so, so much. All these new relatives that you’re meeting, and… I mean, I understand that you’re still dealing, you know, with the death of your dad. And I know, fomememymemememememememe waalwawawawawawawaggtgggggggg cheerleader and always helped methrough things.
Allie: Yeah. Me too. Sorry. Um, I’m actually gonna go take a shower.
Ashley: Oh, okay.
Allie: Excuse me.
Jack: Hey, red.
Phyllis: Hey! How are you this morning?
Jack: Oh, it’s a pretty glorious morning.
Phyllis: It is.
Jack: Sun is shining, the birds are chirping.
Phyllis: I have a really great idea. Um, would you like me… to make a cup of coffee, and we can sit here and watch diane check out and know that she’s never gonna darken our doorstep ever again?
Ashland: I made a huge mistake. Uh, in fact, I made several mistakes, and I deeply regret my actions. But nothing I’ve done changes my relationship with my son. So if I —
Summer: To be clear, he is not your son. Tara lied about that, just like you have lied about so many things.
Ashland: I’m trying to make amends. But for today, I just want to spend a little bit of time with harrison.
Kyle: Listen —
Ashland: Please, I’m —
Kyle: We already said no. So don’t make this a scene. You should go. Now.
Ashland: Hey, uh, kiddo! Your old man, he’s gotta… get to a meeting, so we’ll have to spend time together later. Another time. I’ll see you soon, though. I love you.
Kyle: That could’ve gone a lot worse.
Summer: I’m just glad that it didn’t get ugly in front of harrison. Aunt victoria.
Summer: Oh, my gosh.
Victoria: Good to see you.
Summer: We just heard about what ashland did. I am so sorry that you even had to lay eyes on him just now.
Victoria: I can handle seeing him.
Summer: I know nobody is stronger than you. I just — I wish somebody would’ve told me.
Kyle: Victor must be furious.
Summer: And the rest of my family? I mean, I would be scared of grandma if I were ashland. Why is he even still in town? Can’t he do one decent thing and just leave us all alone for good? Nicorette knows, quitting smoking is freaking hard.
Chloe: So here is your new profile. You see, I called you a “house manager.”
Esther: Oh. I’m good with that.
Chloe: Yeah. And these are your photos. What do you think?
Esther: I think they’re good. I mean, they look like me, right?
Esther: The last thing i would want is for someone to be disappointed when they see me in person.
Chloe: Yeah, no, I think they look like you. And by that, I mean beautiful.
Esther: Thank you. Okay. Let’s post it.
Chloe: Do it! Mm!
Esther: It’s out there now!
Chloe: Yep. Loving, loyal, and sincere you is out there. And I wouldn’t trade you for the world.
Esther: Well, that’s good, honey, because you’re not getting rid of me anytime soon.
Chloe: [ Chuckles ]
Esther: And as far as the app goes, I don’t have any unrealistic expectations. I’m not expecting a prince or even someone that would be interested. I-I’m just gonna go with the flow.
Chloe: Well, any guy who swipes right is lucky.
Esther: Aww. Thank you. Okay. We should be going. I mean, the kids are probably expecting us.
Chloe: I know. I guess we should go.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Esther: Well, is that —
Chloe: Ooh! Yep, that is the app.
[ Gasps ] You got a hit. Someone’s interested!
Esther: Oh, my. Oh, no. Oh, my gosh.
Jack: I am truly sorry that diane has been such a disruption in all of our lives.
Phyllis: Well, I mean, listen, if it’s any consolation, diane led me to having as close as a bonding experience as I’m ever gonna have with your sister ashley.
Phyllis: Yeah, she came tearing in here, accusing me of going soft on diane. I assured her I’m still a hater.
Jack: Well, I guess it’s good to know the two of you can agree on something.
Phyllis: Yeah. Listen, jack, we just need to get diane the hell out of our lives. We really do. I mean, part of me is relieved that kyle and summer and harrison are going back to italy. I mean, I want them as far away from that woman as possible.
Summer: That little boy is just the cutest.
Kyle: Well, it doesn’t look like he picked up on any of the earlier tension with ashland.Summer: But we are going to have to deal with it eventually. As much as we could hope that ashland will do the right thing and leave town, we can’t count on it. And didn’t sound like he was ready to go anywhere.
Kyle: Mm. If he won’t walk away from harrison, we’ll have to keep our guard up with both him and my mother. The prospect of staying in genoa city just got much more complicated with those two in the equation.
Victoria: I don’t ever want to leave the palazzo, let alone tuscany.
Ashland: Well, that doesn’t sound at all like the beautiful, talented workaholic I just married.
[ Both chuckle ]
Victoria: Well, it is our wedding night.
Ashland: Mm, yes, it is. But as perfect as this night is, if we stayed here, we would be missing out on the extraordinary life we’re gonna have back home. Working side by side. Power couple by day, passionate at night, that kind of thing.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ]
Ashland: I’m gonna spend every day from now on showing you how much I love you. And you know, I was thinking. Part of me wishes we’d met years ago. But maybe we had to wait until this moment so we would both understand how lucky we are. You have no idea how deeply i regret the lies… I felt I had to tell. But I’m gonna spend the rest of my life making it up to you. That’s a promise.
Victoria: Mom, it’s me. I’ve changed my mind. I think we should take that trip together after all.
Next week on “the young and the restless”…
Nate: Am I interrupting something? Because I’m getting the distinct feeling that something’s wrong.
Hilary: We just got some news, and…it wasn’t good.
Michael: I think I found a solution for getting ashland out of town.
Ashland: You’re kyle’s mother?
Diane: That’s right.
Ashland: Maybe we have more in common than just having a bad day.
