Young & The Restless Transcript

Nick: Thank you.
Victoria: I’m sorry, but you really can’t seriously be giving adam this much credit. You think that he broke up with sally so that we wouldn’t fire her?
Nick: I’m not nominating the guy for sainthood or anything close to that. I’m just saying, there have been some times in adam’s life where he’s been selfless, like when he saved faith’s life.
Victoria: Oh, believe me, I haven’t forgotten that, but adam has also done some extremely egregious things that far outweighs [Scoffs] A few acts of kindness. And I am not going to give him the benefit of the doubt while he’s making all of these big moves, like threatening that he’s going to walk away from newman enterprises and from us for good. Breaking things off with sally, it makes me wonder if maybe there’s something bigger going on here, something that he has planned.
Nick: Like what? Some revenge plot against us?
Victoria: I don’t know, but I’m not buying that he’s walking away from the company for good. Even when he says he’s trying to walk on the straight and narrow, adam is like a dark cloud hanging over newman. It’s his nature. And that’s never going to change.
Adam: [ Sighs ]
Victor: Son. Hope you had enough time to think about your decision to step away from newman.
Adam: I’m sorry, dad. That’s just not the case.
Victor: And I recall that you had done that before, you know? Then you eventually came back. What would it take to convince you to stay?
Sharon: So there’s something great that’s going on with you. Can I assume that it has something to do with the lovely allie?
Noah: What can possibly give you that idea?
Sharon: Oh, I don’t know. Maybe it’s the look on your face whenever you’re around her or talking about her. Let’s see, what’s the word I’m looking for? Oh, I know — happy.
Noah: That’s very funny. But, yeah, yeah, I like her. She’s cool, easy to hang out with.
Sharon: She kind of took you by surprise, didn’t she?
Noah: Yeah, I can’t remember ever feeling so comfortable and so relaxed with someone this quickly.
Sharon: Why do you make that sound like it’s a bad thing?
Noah: It isn’T. Just makes me wonder if this thing with allie could really go anywhere.
Ashley: I hope I’m not interrupting.
Allie: Oh, not at all. I was just looking over my materials from the jabot orientation. I want to be fully prepped for my first day at the lab tomorrow.
Ashley: I love how enthusiastic you are, and I’m sure you’re going to be more than ready.
Allie: I cannot wait, ashley. I also love that you and i are both so at home in the lab, just like your dad.
Allie: It must be in the genes.
Ashley: I think it has to be. So how’s everything going with you, getting to know the family and everything?
Allie: It’s been wonderful, to say the least. Better than what I was expecting. Not that I was expecting anything bad or anything. I was just… god, I was so nervous when I first came here. I didn’t know how you guys would feel about me, how I feel about you, what I would say. It was pretty scary.
Ashley: Yeah, I bet.
Ashley: And strange, too. I mean, the way you met jack in L.A., Right? And you found out you got a grandfather, and then you have this whole family, and — and then on top of it all, you find out that diane orchestrated the entire thing.
Allie: Yeah. Yeah, it was a bit mind-blowing, but I will be forever grateful to be in this big, loving family that I never knew I had.
Ashley: Yeah, well, just so you know, you are the gift to us, and I mean that from my heart. But it had to be very overwhelming, and I’m sure that it still is because there’s so many intense dynamics, right? I mean, I can only imagine what you think of all that.
Allie: Why do I get the feeling that you’re really asking about diane?
Phyllis: Hey, jack. Hey.
Jack: Hey, uh… good to see you.
Phyllis: Yeah. You, too. You just taking a walk or going somewhere in particular?
Jack: I have a meeting later with some of the original marchetti board members. They just flew in from italy.
Phyllis: Ah, that’s right. Summer had me reserve some suites for them.
Jack: Right. Of course.
Phyllis: Well, I won’t keep you.
Jack: Well, have a nice day.
Phyllis: Yeah, you, too. You know what, jack? Wait a second. There is something I want to say.
Phyllis: About your sister. Alice loves the scent of gain so much,
Jack: You want to talk about my sister? Ashley or traci?
Jack: I hope you two didn’t have any kind of a run-in.
Phyllis: No, not at all. She told me that — that you told her about what happened between us.
Jack: You have an issue with my confiding in ashley?
Phyllis: Well, no. I mean, of course you talk to your sister. Of course you would, but… I just want you to know that she understands the way I reacted to diane.
Jack: She told you that?
Phyllis: Yeah. Ashley and I are on the same side. That’s a first.
Jack: Yeah, that is a surprise, but ashley has always had a distinctively unique perspective on things.
Phyllis: Okay, well, she sees diane the same way I do.
Jack: I think she’s as determined as you are to see the worst in diane.
Phyllis: Okay, but you respect ashley. You respect her opinion, right? Does her stance on diane not change your mind at all?
Jack: You keep trying to make this a referendum on diane.
Phyllis: Okay, because this is about my alleged unhappiness, right, which is impossible right now for me to disprove.
Jack: I was just suggesting it’s more about us.
Phyllis: Okay, yes, jack, I really, really want you to know that diane was never, ever more important than my feelings for you, ever.
Jack: You know what? I have to get to the office.
Nick: Adam has made some significant strides with some of the relationships in this family.
Victoria: Well, don’t get me wrong, nicholas. I don’t even blame adam for being the way that he is, given everything we’ve learned about his childhood. And, yes, he has been on comparatively good behavior. But that doesn’t mean that I can trust his loyalty, because it’s always flip-flopping back and forth, not to mention his intense competitive streak, his constant need for dad’s approval, his angry resentment every time he’s shunned. Those character flaws have always remained the same.
Nick: I can’t disagree with that.
Victoria: Which is why there is no room for him at the new newman enterprises. Time will tell what is true intentions are.
Nick: And very soon we’re going to see if sally deserves her spot.
Victoria: But one thing i already know [Sighs] Is that it feels so good and so right having you back by my side at newman.
Adam: Oh, so now you want to know what it would take to get me back, huh? You know, you could’ve kept me in this very office, but you chose victoria, so I don’t think there’s anything else to say on that subject.
Victor: So then why are you here?
Adam: Well, for starters, I wanted to finish my earlier conversation with victoria about sally.
Victor: Ooh, I understand you ended your relationship with her.
Adam: I don’t doubt that you are thrilled about that. And you’ll be even happier to learn that I realized getting involved with her was a mistake in the first place.
Victor: Oh, well, that’s a sudden realization.
Adam: I just hope that victoria and the rest of you will give her a chance to prove herself at newman now that she has no connection to me. You guys would be fools not to keep her on.
Victor: Let me ask you, did you end your relationship with her because you wanted to protect her position here at newman media?
Adam: Absolutely not. I ended things because it wasn’t working out. Never should’ve begun in the first place. I just — I don’t want to see her punished professionally because of our personal relationship.
Victor: Pains me to realize that you go to such great lengths to protect sally spectra, whatever her name is, and yet you’re willing to walk away from your family and from newman. Do you dislike us that much?
Adam: [ Exhales sharply ]
[ Sighs ] Hi, I’m karen.
Adam: There is so much more going on besides hatred. I mean, try devastation. Humiliation. Betrayal. Okay, dad? I thought things had been going quite well for us, and I thought we had finally turned a corner, but, unfortunately, I was wrong about that.
Victor: No, you weren’t wrong about that. I thought things were going very well, and you just would’ve had another place at newman since you were unhappy at newman media. All you had to do is be patient.
Adam: [ Chuckles ] I have been more than patient, dad… but you’ve just been jerking me around this whole time, like I’m your puppet, and I’ve been dancing as fast as I can whenever you pull the strings. So many times I’ve tried to break free, and I have been pulled back and shown once again that I’m a second-class citizen in this family. I’m never good enough to be a real newman. But you know what? Not anymore.
Victor: I’ve had your back for all this time. For you to feel this way, that you don’t belong to this family… …that upsets me.
Victor: You’re my son.
Adam: Why don’t you ever listen? Good god, dad, you and everybody else, you are so used to getting your way. You just assume everybody’s supposed to sit here and take what you dish out, that I’m supposed to bow down to your will? Well, you know what? Some people have limits, and they’re not going to accept defeat and just go quietly into the night. Like ashland locke.
Victor: What the hell does ashland locke have to do with anything?
Adam: [ Sighs ] Because you all are in for a rude awakening.
Sharon: Help me connect the dots here, because I feel like I’m missing something. Obviously, you and allie are in the beginning stages of getting to know each other, and there’s no way of predicting how things will go with you two in the future, but… why are you already questioning whether or not you have a future?
Noah: ‘Cause I’ve never been with anyone like allie before. I’ve never had a relationship start like this. At first, we irritated each other. Then we became friends. It’s just, it’s not my usual thing.
Sharon: Oh, I get it. Since your first girlfriend, you have been attracted to a certain type of woman. Troublemakers, drama queens, women who were dragging around so much baggage that they were destined to break your heart for one reason or another.
Noah: Ah, well, gee, mom, thank you. And when you word it like that, it makes it sound like I sure can pick them.
Sharon: I’m not judging. I mean, look at my history. You were raised by two parents who share a complicated past, so maybe, on some level, a part of you decided that conflict in your relationship is normal, to be expected. But I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way. I would love to see you with somebody smart and kind and honest, who really appreciates you for who you are.
Noah: Like what you had with rey?
Sharon: Exactly. I just want you to embrace the idea that a loving, lasting relationship doesn’t have to be contentious or full of conflict. It doesn’t have to be that much hard work. Well, of course you do have to work at it. That’s true.
Noah: I get it, okay?
[ Chuckles ]
Sharon: Good. I hope you do, because it’s really great the way that you and allie get along. And wouldn’t you rather skip over all of the angst stuff this time around?
Noah: You know, I think I just might. A healthy relationship sounds — sounds appealing.
Sharon: Good answer.
Noah: [ Chuckles ]
Sharon: You know, I don’t want you to overanalyze things or put too much pressure on yourself trying to figure out where you two are headed. Everything’s so new right now. Just enjoy the moments together. That’s what really matters anyway. Does that sound okay with you?
Noah: Yeah, it’s more than okay.
Allie: I’ve been very popular lately.
Ashley: What do you mean?
Allie: Well, the other day, phyllis was asking me all kinds of questions about the family and jack and, well, about everything. And then, of course, diane came for her own fishing expedition. And now here you are, probing me about her.
Ashley: Yeah, I’m curious.
Allie: Look, I get that diane has a lot of enemies in town, and I also totally understand why you feel protective about jack and kyle and why you don’t trust her. But, ashley, I don’t want to be involved.
Ashley: I understand. And I’m sorry if I’ve made you feel uncomfortable, but you have to realize that phyllis and I know how incredibly manipulative diane is. I know that she did a great thing by connecting you with jack. It was wonderful. But she had an ulterior motive. She used you to get to jack to help her reunite with kyle.
Allie: And I am fully aware of that.
Ashley: It worked for her. Do you understand? And I know her. We have not seen the last of diane’s scheming, and I don’t want to see you get used like that again.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ]
Lily: Oh, phyllis, hello.
Lily: I’ve actually been waiting for you.
Phyllis: Oh, have you?
Phyllis: Does chancellor-winters need the ballroom for another event?
Lily: No. No, no, no. It’s actually something bigger than that — an offer that I hope you’ll be very interested in. (Kid 1) where’s lucky?
Adam: This whole saga with locke should’ve been over when we paid him off. But victoria, she just felt compelled to take things further. She just had to get the money back as her special way to kiss your ring.
Victor: I don’t understand you. You have a problem with victoria returning the money to her family?
Adam: But she felt the need to rub his face in his loss and humiliation. And if that wasn’t enough, she decided that his cancer deception needed to be outed via the podcast, just completely destroying the guy’s chances of ever doing business again.
Victor: That bastard deserves worse than that after what he has pulled.
Adam: That’s not how you put somebody in their place. That’s how you motivate them to seek retribution, dad. And now you are here, you’re praising victoria’s actions?
Victor: Yeah. Why wouldn’t I? He got what he deserved.
Adam: And you thought that would be the end of it, right? Till he came back to town and you thought you had to make one more move to contain him.
Adam: So you put him in his place by having him arrested. You knew he was going to see his son, so you set him up.
Victor: You bet I set him up. I had michael baldwin put out a restraining order that I knew the bastard would cross. Of course, he did.
Adam: Well, now he’s out on bail, and he’s gunning for a fight. Why wouldn’t he be?
Victor: How do you know all this? Were you talking to ashland locke?
Adam: That’s your response after everything I said? Questioning me? You should be thanking me for letting you know. But, hey, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Victor: Do you think I’m even one iota impressed with a potential threat from ashland locke? Give me a break, son. Let that bastard try whatever he wants to. Came to the wrong address. I’m concerned about you, however.
Adam: Me? Oh, I’m the last person you should be worried about, dad.
Victor: [ Sighs ] Son… take some time off, come to your senses, and realize that this is where you belong. This is your family.
Adam: [ Sighs ] I just… I give up with you, dad. There’s no getting through to you. Ever.
Phyllis: What’s your offer?
Lily: Well, as you know, devon sold the gcac a while ago.
Phyllis: Mm, yeah, and right in time, diane jenkins has checked in to the athletic club.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Well, I don’t know her that well, but if devon had waited till after the merger, I would’ve told him to hold off and update the property.
Phyllis: Why is that?
Lily: Well, because I think that chancellor-winters needs an upscale, trendy hotel in this town, you know, one where devon’s artists, our musical artists, their entourage, a place where they can stay.
Phyllis: I love that.
Phyllis: I really do. I would love to partner with you on that. I mean, if we could come up with something that is, you know, satisfactory to both of us, some agreement that we like. But I would love the grand phoenix to be the exclusive hotel of chancellor-winters for all your vips and rock stars. In fact, you know what? We can come up with a rock-star version to the escape club.
Lily: I’m actually not looking for collaboration.
Phyllis: Okay, then what is this about?
Lily: I want to buy your hotel and make it a chancellor-winters property.
Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] You want to buy my hotel?
Lily: Look, I know this is a surprise. I know it is, but I’m just asking you to at least consider it.
Phyllis: I mean, you know why I call this the grand phoenix. It was my story. I am the phoenix rising from the ashes. I mean, it was my chance to show the world that I was a legitimate entrepreneur. I mean, it was my slap in the face to all the people here who didn’t think I amounted to anything.
Lily: Yeah, look, phyllis, i get it. I understand. I do. I know this is more than a business for you. I mean, your commitment and drive are what have made this place to be what it is. One that will get a pretty hefty price in a purchase. I mean, that’s legitimacy, too. And think about it. Think what you could do with the money. I mean, the freedom you would have. You could live your life any way that you want. You’ve already done so much with your career, right? You’ve been a webmaster, you’ve run a magazine, you’ve been an executive. I mean, this could be a new chapter in your life.
Phyllis: Well, the grand phoenix is my new chapter.
Lily: Yeah, but, I mean, this is a grind. This is hard work, you know? Wouldn’t you want a simpler life of luxury?
Phyllis: Well, I’m not ready to step away.
Lily: Well, maybe that’s ’cause you’ve never had any other option — until now. This is a proposal, okay, outlining an agreement with what I think is a more-than-generous bid.
Victoria: Who would’ve thought the silver lining to this whole mess would be you and me coming back to work together as a team?
Nick: Look, I know you’ve got big plans for the company, but can we just enjoy this moment right now before we got to jump right back into the fray?
Victoria: Oh. It looks like our break is already over.
Adam: I just came from the office. I was hoping to hear what the ultimate decision was about sally, but I ran into dad, who was no help whatsoever.
Nick: Well, you’ll be happy to know that we’ve decided sally’s going to remain as interim ceo of newman media.
Victoria: Yeah. Much to my surprise, she made an incredible case for herself.
Adam: Well, I’m sure she did because she’s the right person for the job. You guys would’ve regretted cutting her loose.
Nick: But you didn’T.
Adam: Well, as I mentioned earlier, sally and I, we were already having issues, or rather that i was having issues, and I informed her that it was over. Beyond that, it’s really nobody else’s business.
Nick: Seems like a touchy subject.
Adam: It is. So why don’t we just drop it? You don’t need to worry about my personal life. Right now, you should be worrying about the hell that is going to rain down on you. A lot of folks ask me why their dishwasher
“The young and the restless”
Ashley: I realize that you don’t know me very well, but I hope you can feel that my concern for you is genuine.
Allie: Ashley, I’m not questioning that at all.
Ashley: Okay. I’m glad. It’s so important to me that you have your eyes wide open where diane jenkins is concerned. Honestly, as long as her presence is here in this town, she will continue to inflict pain on our family. What is it? What are you thinking? I mean, honestly, express it, please. I promise you, it’s not going to affect our relationship at the lab or here. I promise.
Allie: Okay. Ashley, I just… I just want you to know that even though I may seem innocent or naive, I am anything but, and I won’t let anyone manipulate me. Not diane. Not phyllis. And not you. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go get ready for my date with noah.
Noah: Voil. All done. Perfect espressos on demand.
Sharon: Thanks. I owe you one.
Noah: Ah, we’ll call it even. I appreciated the advice. Came at a good time, too. Allie and I are going to the rooftop bar at the athletic club, and [Sighs] I’m just going to live in the moment and enjoy myself. You see how good I listen?
Sharon: Very wise. But do you have a little bit of time before your date?
Noah: Yeah, sure, you need help with something else?
Sharon: No, but I do have another piece of advice for you.
Sharon: Before you meet allie, you need to call your father and talk about new hope. You have to tell him that you don’t want to stay.
Noah: Mom, look, I know, but —
Sharon: It’s just going to keep eating away at you until you do this. And he deserves to know the truth about how you feel. You can’t keep putting it off.
Adam: [ Sighs ]
Phyllis: Well, this is a very lucrative [Exhales slowly] Business offer. Wow. Very persuasive.
[ Chuckles ] This place is not about the money for me, so no is your answer.
Lily: Alright, alright. Well, listen, I hear you. I appreciate your feelings. I accept your answer for now, because I know that I sprung this on you out of the blue. But listen, please, just look it over. Think about it. Go through it thoroughly. Alright? Maybe you’ll change your mind.
Jack: Ladies, good to see you both.
Lily: Hello. You, too. I’d love to stay and chat, but i have to run, but catch up soon?
Jack: Yeah, I look forward to it.
Lily: Think about it.
Phyllis: [ Clears throat ] Is there more you wanted to talk to me about?
Jack: Please don’t read too much into my showing up. I got a call from the marchetti board asking that we meet here rather than at jabot. I think they want to talk over a meal. Their body clocks are a little thrown off by the time change.
Phyllis: Oh, okay. I —
Jack: So is the private dining room in the restaurant available?
Phyllis: It is. It is. I will double-check, but don’t worry about a thing. I’ll make sure all your guests are comfortable, and, you know… hey, you know what? There is something that I would like to run by you.
Jack: Oh, okay. Go ahead.
Phyllis: It’s lily. She just dropped a bomb on me and offered me this deal. I could use some business advice.
Jack: Okay. I have some time.
Adam: No matter how much you hate locke, having the guy arrested for simply seeing his son in the park is a vicious move.
Victoria: Nick and I had nothing to do with that. Although, it did send a very clear message.
Adam: Oh, he got the message, but apparently nobody decided to think about the consequences now that he’s been released, and he’s even angrier than he was before.
Nick: Well, I’m sure he knows we weren’t involved. Shouldn’t you be warning who was responsible?
Adam: [ Sighs ] I told dad, and he wasn’t fazed. He doesn’t let anything ashland do get under his skin. He doesn’t see the guy as a threat.
Nick: Well, you seem to know a lot about this. I’m assuming you’ve spoken to ashland.
Adam: That’s right.
Adam: I paid him a visit not too long ago at the gcac, where he’s staying.
Nick: And why would you do that, adam?
Adam: I was hoping to find a man that was fired up about sabotaging newman enterprises. I was hoping that he was concocting some kind of corporate maneuver that would hit dad back. Just wanted to let him know that I would be more than happy to lend a hand.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Of course you were. What makes me wonder right now is why you’re even saying this to us. Not that we believe one word that comes out of your mouth, but, please, go ahead, finish what you were telling us. I’m sure it won’t be a problem later to find out what your true agenda is.
Adam: Well, my agenda came to a screeching halt when I learned he isn’t interested in the company. He’s going in an entirely different direction. I think he’s out for more than just revenge. I think he’s out for blood. For copd,
Nick: What do you mean ashland’s out for blood?
Adam: Look, I don’t know for sure. It’s not like he just came right out and admitted it, but the man has been stripped of everything that has ever mattered to him. He wasn’t ranting, he wasn’t raving or making threats, but he’s pretty messed up. He completely trashed his hotel room.
Victoria: My gosh. Even at his angriest, he’s never done anything like that.
Adam: Yeah, and when he mentioned “victor’s darling daughter,” he had a look in his eye that gave me a chill.
Victoria: Think he’s coming for me?
Adam: Like I said, he wasn’t specific, so I’m not certain what he will do. I just felt like you should know so you can be on guard.
Nick: Well, thank you for telling us, adam. I really appreciate it.
Adam: Yeah. [ Sighs ] Look, I know I am the last person you would trust about anything, and my feelings about you haven’t changed, either, but whatever our issues are, I don’t want to see anybody get hurt.
Phyllis: Chancellor-winters wants to buy the grand phoenix.
Jack: Really? Wow.
Jack: Lily is not messing around here. This is significantly above market value. If you’re willing to entertain this, I don’t think you’re going to get a better offer, but it has to be something that you would want.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] I love running this place. And it’s not just about that. It’s just proving to the whole world that I did something successful. Plus all the memories I have here.
Jack: Yeah, there are some good memories. Some, not so much. I don’t think I can help you with this. This is a highly personal decision only you can make.
Phyllis: Right. Well, if it weren’t for summer, I’d definitely take this offer. But I just don’t feel like i belong in genoa city anymore.
Nick: Yeah, you’ll have that by the end of the day. Alright, bye.
[ Sighs ]
Victoria: You know, I hate to admit it, but adam’s concerns seemed very sincere, so do you think that ashland really has gone off the rails?
Nick: Yeah, my gut tells me adam was being real. I really think you should move to the ranch for the time being.
Victoria: No, nicholas, I am not going to let ashland have that control over me. Besides, I can’t imagine him honestly trying to hurt me.
Nick: You heard adam. It sounds like ashland has gone over the edge.
Victoria: Well, he may be upset, but that doesn’t mean he’s dangerously violent.
Nick: Adam said he destroyed his hotel room. This is something we have to take seriously. Just move to the ranch for a little while so we keep an eye on you.
Victoria: Alright, I’ll think about it. But I refuse to let ashland scare me.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Nick: Sorry. Excuse me. Hey, noah, what’s up?
Noah: Hey, just wanted to see if you were free right now.
Nick: No, but I can be. What’s going on?
Noah: I was hoping we can talk. I’m at crimson lights.
Nick: Yeah, okay. I’m on my way. That was noah. He needs to see me. I’ll drop you at the office.
Victoria: You go ahead. It’s a beautiful day. I think I’m going to take a walk.
Noah: What did we just talk about?
Victoria: Nicholas, you know that dad has a security detail watching me. They’re never that far away. So if something crazy happens, I’ll just call them. I’ll be fine. You don’t have to worry about me, okay? With depression, you just feel…blah.
Ashley: You look gorgeous. I hope you and noah have a great time tonight.
Allie: Thank you, ashley.
Ashley: Where you guys going to go?
Allie: We are going to the gcac rooftop pool bar.
Ashley: Ooh, nice. Definitely the most L.A.-Style nightlife you’re going to find around here, okay?
Allie: Trust me, noah is definitely way more into the nightlife stuff than I will ever be, but it seems like a pretty awesome place.
Ashley: I think it’s awesome that you found somebody you like to spend time with.
Allie: Ashley, please forgive me if I sounded harsh earlier.
Ashley: Please don’t apologize to me. Are you kidding? You were standing up for yourself, and you should. I have nothing but respect for a strong, independent woman. It’s a family trait.
Allie: Good. I’m glad that you weren’t offended.
Ashley: Not at all. You know, there’s going to be so many people with so many opinions in this town, and you being able to hold your own against all of that is going to serve you very well.
Nick: Here I am, as promised. Our boy did not say you were going to be a part of this conversation.
Sharon: That’s because I’m not. This is between the two of you. Can I get you something to drink? Maybe espressos since noah just fixed the espresso machine for me?
Nick: I’m good. Thanks. What’s up?
Nick: Why don’t we take it out to the patio so we can talk in private?
[ Sighs ]
Nick: This is a patio talk?
Nick: Alright, come on.
Noah: Thanks for coming by so quickly. Why don’t you take a seat?
Nick: Whew! So this is the patio talk, and you want me to sit down? Whatever you’re about to tell me, I’m not going to like, am I?
Noah: [ Sighs ]
Jack: If you’re trying to back me into a corner, it’s not going to work. Keep the hotel. Sell it. Stay in genoa city. Go. It is none of my business.
Phyllis: Okay, so the fact that I love you, that doesn’t matter?
Jack: No, it is everything. That is the problem. I have never stopped loving you. Why do you think it hurts so damn much?
Victoria: That’s right. I think that we can lower the budget by at least 25% if we simplify the building design. No, no, I know, I hate losing the atrium, too, but it doesn’t bring any real value to the project. Nothing worthwhile, anyway. We’ll talk about it tomorrow. Okay. Bye.
Ashland: [ Sighs ]
