Sally: Hard at it, I see.
Adam: “Integrate those formidable assets in order to maximize our profit potential” or “in order to achieve market dominance”?
Sally: Well, business is all about money, so I would go with the first one.
Adam: Thanks. That is what I was leaning towards. And…wow.
Sally: You like?
Adam: It is phenomenal. You are killing it with this new look. It’s understated, yet powerful.
Sally: Good, ’cause that is the exact vibe that I am going for, like I do this kind of thing every day. Get named ceo of a major media corporation in a press conference headlined by victor newman himself.
Adam: Well, get used to it.
Sally: Yeah. Well, if I can’t, I will just have to learn to fake it.
Adam: Hey, look, you don’t have to fake anything. You just have to smile and pretend like you have the biggest secret in the world, and the press will eat it up.
Sally: For you, this is familiar territory — being the man of the hour, giving speeches, fielding questions like a pro, it’s just a normal day.
Adam: Yeah, not quite. It’s a little less thrilling when it’s not your first time.
Sally: Okay, well, I won’t tell if you won’T.
Adam: It’s different now. It’s — it’s better than my previous stints running newman.
Sally: Well, for one thing, you have me.
Adam: Yes, and that has made a huge difference.
Sally: Trust me, today is going to be a turning point for both of us.
Michael: There you are. I’ve been looking all over for you. You’re not answering your phone.
Victor: Sit down. I don’t have much time. I have a press conference to go to.
Michael: Yeah, well, you’re gonna want to hear this. I found ashland and victoria.
Victor: Where are they?
Michael: New york, staying at a hotel.
Victor: So he went back to his home base.
Michael: There’s more. Ashland was spotted meeting with a high-end commercial real-estate broker.
Victor: [ Sighs ] So they’re looking for office space to start a new company.
Ashland: Good morning.
Victoria: Good morning. There’s coffee.
Ashland: Well, thank you very much. Look at you, still in your robe, getting a late start. Did you not sleep well?
Victoria: Oh, no, I slept like a baby. I just wanted to enjoy a leisurely morning. There’s no need to rush into the office.
Ashland: Ah, well, I’m — I’m glad you’re getting a chance to relax, especially after the stress of the last few months.
Victoria: Are you hungry? Do you want to order some breakfast?
Ashland: Well, actually, i was gonna ask if you wanted to go out to brunch, you know, at that cute little café we both love on the upper east side.
Victoria: Well, I guess you haven’t checked the news. The whole business world is counting down to the big press event announcing my successor.
Ashland: Actually, I did read that last night before I went to bed, but I wasn’t sure if you had any interest in watching it.
Victoria: On the contrary. I’m gonna be glued to this tablet for the duration. I would not miss one minute of it.
Jack: So that said, I really want your transition to marchetti to go smoothly.
Kyle: I am down with that. What do you need from me?
Jack: I want your thoughts on second-quarter projections, and then you’re pretty much done.
Kyle: That’s it? Seriously?
Jack: Yeah, I’ll handle the rest. My final offer, take it or leave it.
Kyle: Dad, are you sure?
Jack: I’m positive.
Kyle: You’re making this too easy for me.
Jack: You and summer are going to have your hands full wrapping up this acquisition, getting marchetti moved to the united states. The sooner you are in the ceo seat, the better for everyone.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Jack: Oh. There it is, the newman press conference will be in one hour, where victor will formally announce that adam will be taking the reins as ceo.
Kyle: Mm-hmm. Think he hired a skywriter?
Jack: Oh, there will definitely be the intended hoopla.
Kyle: Alright. Kind of ironic. You know, all this fanfare for adam as he ascends the newman throne, while over here you’re quietly shunting your son off to another division.
Jack: Oh, I seem to recall this was your idea. I am in no hurry to lose my partner at jabot.
Kyle: Sorry, you’re stuck with me. Marchetti is a jabot subsidiary.
Jack: Where you will be sole head honcho. I could not be any prouder of you.
Kyle: Thanks. I’m looking forward to the challenge and to be working with summer again. Feels like everything is coming together.
Jack: You worked hard and you earned it. And does that include diane, this “everything coming together”? I mean, I haven’t asked for a while. How are things going between the two of you? Is there a problem?
Summer: Ready to go?
Phyllis: Is it 9:00 already?
Summer: It is 9:03 to be exact.
Phyllis: Okay. I’m so slammed after my trip. I have so much work to do, and there’s a luncheon for the chamber of commerce in the ballroom, and —
Summer: Mom, you promised me that you were going to do this. I’ve already arranged it with diane.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Where are we meeting?
Summer: At the park. Neutral territory so that you can extend an olive branch.
Summer: Please don’t tell me that you’re gonna back out at the last minute. You’ve got to know how important this is to me. To my whole family.
Phyllis: No, I’m — I’ll do it. Yeah, let’s do it, let’s do it. Let’s go. Oh.
Summer: And let’s go. Nope
Kyle: Mom and I are cool. We’ve been spending more time together.
Kyle: She’s been working hard to prove herself, hasn’t done anything wrong. At least not that I know of.
Jack: Well, there’s a curious way of expressing it. Wasn’t that long ago you were doing everything you could to give her the benefit of the doubt.
Kyle: Still am. Doesn’t mean I’m ready to wipe the slate clean.
Jack: Good. There is no rush. There is no deadline.
Kyle: I know. She accepts that, and we’re taking things slow.
Jack: I think you should. Deciding how much of a presence diane is gonna have in your life is a big decision, and one with lifelong implications.
Kyle: There’s a part of me that just wants to open my arms and let her all the way in and just cling to her until the wounds are healed like magic. And then I-I think back to when she was murdered. When I believed my mother was gone and never coming back. And some nights, in my room when I was finally alone, I would scream into my pillow ’cause i thought I had to be brave for everyone. And…to think about that kind of grief, at that age, it was exhausting. Exhausting. It was the most traumatic thing I’d ever been through. And to find out that it — it was all a lie inflicted on me by my own mother? Th-that — that’s not the kind of thing you get past overnight.
Jack: No, it’s not.
Kyle: She’s saying all the right things. She seems to mean them. She’s sentimental with harrison. Grateful to get to know her grandson.
Jack: But you’re having trouble trusting her completely?
Kyle: Dad, I want to, badly, but I’m wary. Because something will happen, and then I’ll wonder if it’s a warning sign. Like — like this thing with you and phyllis. And I don’t need to know details. It’s none of my business. But you admitted to summer and me that there’s a problem that ties back to my mother, and…i can’t help but wonder.
Jack: No, no, if diane is reverting to her old tricks, believe me, I will let you know. As far as this thing with phyllis and me, don’t let that change your evaluation. Look, these are two different issues.
Kyle: Okay. If you say so.
Ashland: You seem almost eager to watch the press conference.
Victoria: More like fascinated.
Ashland: And here I thought you’d be mostly irritated.
Victoria: Why? Because it’s rumored that my father might announce adam as my successor?
Ashland: Are you telling me that doesn’t bother you, not at all?
Victoria: I’m sure that my father would love it if I lost it over that and came racing back to defend my turf. I mean, it’s why he did it in the first place. Not because adam will run newman better than I will. It’s what he always does. He plays us against each other. It’s his usual move, and quite frankly, I find it tiresome. And I’m not falling for it.
Ashland: I’m just impressed that you’re so calm, so nonchalant, above it all.
Victoria: Well, I mean, come on, isn’t that why we left in the first place? So that I could break free of my father’s influence and stand strong on my own? Our patterns had just become so entrenched, and it had gotten to the point where I knew what he was gonna do before he’d even done it.
Ashland: There’s a certain satisfaction to that, being able to predict your rival’s every move. I’ve had that feeling myself from time to time.
Victoria: You know…no one’s ever gotten me the way that you do. I realized that about you when i first met you. It’s like we’re kindred spirits.
Ashland: I just wish I’d recognized that from the beginning, like you did.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ] You’re a slow learner. I’ll adapt, don’t worry.
Ashland: [ Laughs ] Thank you for the effort.
Victoria: You’re worth it.
Ashland: Um…I’ll tell you what. Let me prove my value. Why don’t you order room service? I’m going to go change for the meeting, and then we will reconvene, sit right on this couch, and watch the press conference together, in case it’s a little tougher on you than you think.
Victoria: Oh, aren’t you thoughtful.
Ashland: I try.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ]
[ Cellphone rings ]
Nick: Vick. I’m so glad you called. Are you okay?
Victoria: I’m fine.
Can a cream really
Adam: You don’t think my statement’s too long?
Sally: No way. Reporters love meaty speeches to pull quotes from.
Adam: Well, when you’re right, you are right.
[ Sighs ]
Sally: You could cut the last sentence, maybe. Save that thought for the q&A.
Adam: Hmm. Much tighter ending. Got it.
Sally: [ Exhales sharply ]
Victor: Well…the moment’s almost upon us. The press is waiting to come in.
Sally: Time to get this show underway?
Adam: Actually, I would like a moment alone with my dad.
Sally: Sure thing. I will go schmooze the reporters. Take as much time as you need.
Victor: So, son, are you getting cold feet?
Adam: Not at all.
Adam: I meant what I said. I plan to use my time at the helm, however long or short that is, to show you what I’m capable of, and I promise you, you will be impressed.
Victor: [ Chuckles ] Now, we both want what’s best for you, right? We both want you to excel.
Adam: Oh, there’s no worries about that. Feel like my whole life has been leading me to this moment, to this opportunity, and I plan to make the most of it.
Victor: I’m banking on that, son. I’m betting on you.
Victoria: The move has gone great. Everything is happening just as I hoped.
Nick: Are you ready to tell us where you are?
Victoria: I’m surprised you haven’t heard. I assumed dad would have sussed it out by now.
Nick: If he knows, he hasn’t said anything to me.
Victoria: We’re in new york, visiting ashland’s favorite haunts.
Nick: I should’ve guessed that.
Victoria: I gather that you won’t be making it to our brother’s coronation.
Nick: So you heard about that.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ] I assume that adam is thrilled. All of his dreams are coming true.
Nick: Well, you’ll have to ask him. We — we haven’t talked about it.
Victoria: Well, please be sure to give him my congratulations when you see him, since you’re the only one in the family that I’m communicating with.
Nick: Vick, call mom. Alright? You know how much she worries.
Victoria: I know. I will when the time is right. I have to go now, okay?
Nick: Are you gonna watch the press conference? I hear they’re gonna live-stream it.
Victoria: Well, I doubt that ashland and I will have time. We’re meeting with some big investors to see if they’ll bankroll our new venture.
Nick: Are these connections of ashland’s?
Victoria: They’re mine, mostly.
Nick: Does that mean your plan is to set up a company that will compete against newman?
Victoria: Nicholas, I didn’t call you to talk about my future business. I just wanted to check in and let you know that I’m okay. I should get going now. I got to get ready for this meeting. I’ll talk to you soon, okay? Bye.
Nick: [ Sighs ]
Diane: Hello, summer. Don’t you look lovely. I love that top on you. And, phyllis, welcome back. I hope you had a nice time in georgia with your son and granddaughter.
Phyllis: I did. It was lovely. Thank you for asking.
Diane: Yeah, so what did you ladies want to meet about? Who would like to begin?
Summer: Well, while mom was out of town, she had a chance to do some thinking. Right?
Phyllis: Right. Um…well, I was able to center myself and gain perspective.
Diane: Really? That’s great. And so quickly. It took me years.
Phyllis: Ha, well, I’m a fast learner, and I mean, you… had a lot to work through.
Diane: I don’t know about that, because you strike me as someone with so many issues weighing you down.
Phyllis: Oh, do I? Really? Well, not really. No, no, I don’T. But what I realized is I just want to keep this calm…inside of me, and, um…I don’t want anger and resentment to fester and rot away inside. Like it’s done to you. You made it clear that you’re sticking in town. You’re gonna be at family events and such, so…yeah. I would just like to put the past where it needs to be — behind us. Starting today.
Diane: [ Chuckles ] Are you saying this is a fresh start for the two of us?
Phyllis: Well, I’m never gonna forget the things you’ve done to me.
Summer: Mom, but you can — you can forgive.
Diane: Right, the way so many people in town have forgiven you over the years for all the things you’ve done.
Phyllis: See? This is what I’m going to do. I’m not going to dwell on the things that you did to me. So just consider this a pact of non-aggression, a ceasefire, a detente.
Summer: Maybe something a little less war-like?
Phyllis: A truce.
Diane: Well, that is wonderful to hear. Thank you, phyllis, for sharing that with me. You just made my day. Hi, I’m denise.
Diane: I know this couldn’t have been easy for you, phyllis.
Summer: Well, you know, when you showed up with no warning, it brought up a lot of painful, unresolved issues for everyone.
Diane: Oh, I’m well aware, because pretty much everywhere i turn, people are there to remind me of the damage I’ve done. Not that I’m complaining. I know that I deserve every bit of their rage.
Phyllis: Oh, yeah, you most definitely do.
Diane: Which is why I find it so impressive that you found a way to let it go and make peace with me. It must be so freeing.
Phyllis: It must be freeing for you to know that you can cross one person off the long list you have of people who don’t want you in town.
Diane: Well, it does mean a great deal to me, especially, as you pointed out, we’re part of the same extended family, and it’s best for everyone if we get alonG.
Phyllis: Yeah, it is. You know, nobody has any reason to give you a second chance in this town. But I will. You know, it’s unfortunate for you, ’cause the probability of people giving you dirty looks and just the outright hostility that you will experience by staying in genoa city, that must be very difficult, but you know what, diane? I…I’m not gonna be a part of that. Because I will not put my daughter through that. My daughter and her husband. I will not make my daughter uncomfortable. I will not make her choose sides ever.
Diane: Excellent point. And while I realize you’re not doing this for me, I do appreciate the effort. Thank you.
Phyllis: Well, you’re welcome.
Diane: You know, I’m just really happy for you, phyllis, that you’ve reached this level of serenity and maturity.
[ Chuckles ] Comes as a complete surprise. Oh, I hope you don’t take that the wrong way.
Phyllis: Oh, absolutely not. Let’s go, alright?
Summer: Okay. Thank you for coming, diane.
Diane: Of course.
Summer: Shall we?
Phyllis: Sure, let’s go.
Victor: Thank you all for coming. Today I have an important announcement to make. As you know, newman enterprises has expanded enormously during the last year. We not only merged with locke communications group, but we acquired chancellor communications and newman media. All this was done under the very capable leadership of my daughter victoria. She’s done a wonderful job. Unfortunately, for personal reasons, she decided to step away. And today I’m naming my son adam as new chief executive officer of newman enterprises, effective immediately. As some of you may know, adam has been intimately acquainted with the various departments of this company, but only someone who gathered the knowledge that he did on wall street and someone who graduated from harvard business school was able to, many times, step in and steer this enormous ship whenever I asked him to. He’s exactly what we need right now. He’s bold, he’s innovative, he’s right for the job. Please welcome my son adam.
Ashland: I believe that last comment was aimed at you.
Victoria: Oh, no doubt. Did you notice how my father didn’t mention your name, not even once? It’s as if you’ve ceased to exist.
Ashland: I’m sure he wishes that was the case.
Adam: Well, I could not be more pleased to be taking the helm of the company now. First things first, I have to give due credit to my sister for having the foresight to pull together the resources so we could thrive during these challenging times. Our talented executive team, cutting-edge technology, and amazing portfolio of intellectual property, and our unmatched global reach. My mission will be to integrate those assets to maximize our profit potential. At the same time, keeping with the values and the philosophy of our founder, my father, victor newman, who has always been at the heart of our company’s success.
Ashland: “My sister went on a shopping spree, but I’m the only one who knows what to do with all the stuff.” And look at him, he’s still kissing up to victor, even after he’s gotten the gig. Haven’t you had enough of this?
Adam: …Because I am leaving newman media in the very capable hands of my former coo and now ceo, sally spectra. And we’re available to take any questions you have.
Victoria: Okay, I am done. And you know what? My father deserves everything that adam and sally are gonna put him through. Let’s go. Let’s get to our meeting, shall we?
Ashland: Okay. Well [Clears throat] After you.
Adam: Well, we settled on ceo and not “division president” partly because it had been my title, but mainly because of the level of responsibility that it takes to run a media entity of that size. Something that I have every confidence ms. Spectra will handle with her usual aplomb.
Nick: Can I see you outside? I heard from victoria.
Adam: Next question? (Vo) red lobster’s seafood summerfest is fire!
“The young and the restless”
will continue. D a woman’s right to choice, her right to make intensely personal decisions from her doctor, free from interference from politics. To reaffirm basic principles of equality, and reinforced the fundamental right of privacy, the right of each of us to choose how to live our lives. Now with roe gone, let’s be very clear: The health and life of women in this nation are now at risK. As chairman and ranking member of the senate judiciary committee, as vice president and now as president of the united states, I’ve studied this case carefully. I’ve overseen more supreme court confirmations than anyone today. Where this case was always discussed. I believe roe V. Wade was the correct decision. As a matter of constitutional law and application of the fundamental right to privacy and liberty in matters of family and personal autonomy. It was a decision on a complex matter, that drew a careful balance between a woman’s right to choose earlier in her pregnancy the states ability to regulate later in her pregnancy. A broad consensus that most americans of faith and backgrounds found acceptable, and had been the law of the land for most of the lifetime of americans today. And it was a constitutional principle upheld by justices appointed by democrat and republican presidents alike. Roe V. Wade was a 7-2 decision, written by a justice, appointed by a republican president, richard nixon. In the five decades that followed roe V. Wade, justices appointed by republican presidents, from eisenhower, nixon, reagan, and george W. Bush were among the justices that voted to uphold the principles set forth in roe V. Wade. It was three justices named by one president, donald trump, in the core of today’s decision to up end the scales of justice and eliminate a fundamental right for women in this country. Make no mistake, this decision is a culmination of a deliberate effort over decades to upset the balance of our law. It’s a realization of an extreme ideology and a tragic error by the supreme court in my view. The court has done what it has never done before: Expressly take away a constitutional right that is so fundamental to so many americans that had already been recognized. The court’s decision to do so will have real and immediate consequences. State laws banning abortion are automatically taking effect today, jeopardizing the health of millions of women, some without exceptions. So extreme that the women can be punished for protecting their health. So extreme that women and girls were forced to bear their rapist’s child. A child of a consequence — it just stuns me. So extreme that doctors will be criminalized for fulfilling their duty to care. Imagine having a young woman having to carry a child of incest — as a consequence of incest with no option. Too often the casE. The poor women are going to be hit the hardest. It is cruel. In fact, the court laid out state laws criminalizing abortion that go back to the 1800s as a rational. The court literally taking america back 150 yearS. This is a sad day for the country, in my vieW. But it doesn’t mean that the fight is over. Let me be very clear and unambiguous: The only way we can secure a woman’s right to choose in the balance that existed is for congress to restore the protections of roe V. Wade as federal law. No executive action from the president can do that. And if congress, as it appears, lacks the votes to do that now, voters need to make their voices heard. This fall you must elect more senators and representatives who will codify a woman’s right to choose into federal law once agaiN. Elect more state leaders to protect this right at the local leveL. We need to restore the protections of roe as law of the land. We need to elect officials who will do that. This fall roe is on the ballot. Personal freedoms are on the ballot. The right to privacy, liberty, equality, they’re all on the ballot. Until then, I will do all in my power to protect a woman’s right in states where they will face the consequences of today’s decision. While the court’s decision cast a dark shadow over a large swath of the land, many states in this country still recognize a woman’s right to choose. So if a woman lives in a state that restricts abortion, the supreme court’s decision does not prevent her from traveling from her home state to the state that allows it. It does not prevent a doctor in that state from treating her. As the attorney general has made clear, women must remain free to travel safely to another state to seek care they need. My administration will defend that bedrock right. If any state or local official, high or low, tries to interfere with a woman’s exercise of her basic right to travel, i will do everything in my power to fight that deeply unamerican attack. My administration will also protect a woman’s access to medications that are approved by the F.D.A., The F.D.A., Like contraception, which is essential for preventive health care. If aprestone, which the F.D.A. Approved 20 years ago to safely end early pregnancies and is used to treat miscarriages — some states are saying they will try to ban or severely restrect access to this medications. But they’re looking to block the mail or search a person’s medicine cabinet or control a woman’s actions by tracking data on an app are wrong and extreme and out of touch with the majority of the americans. The american medical association, the american college of obstetricians and gon gon cologys, they say by limiting access to these medicines, morality will climb in america. That’s what they say. Today I’m directing the department of health and human services to take steps to ensure these critical medications are available to the fullest extent possible. And the politicians cannot interfere in the decisions that should be made between a woman and her doctor. My administration will remain vigilant as the implications of this decision play out. I’ve warned about how this decision risks the broader right to privacy for everyone. That’s because roe recognized the fundamental right to privacy. That has served as a basis for so many more rights that have come to take — we’ve come to take for granted, that are ingrained in the fabric of this country. The right to make the best decisions for your health. The right to use birth control. A married couple in the privacy of their bedroom, for god’s sakE. The right to marry the person you love. Justice thomas said as much today. He explicitly called to reconsider the right of marriage equality, the right of couples to make their choices on contraception. This extreme and dangerous path the court is now taking us on. Let me close with two points: First, I call on everyone, no matter how deeply they care about this decision, to keep all protests peaceful. Peaceful. Peaceful. No intimidation. Violence is never acceptable. Threats and intimidation are not speech. We must stand against violence in any form, regardless of your rationale. Second, I know so many of us are frustrated and disillusioned that the court has taken something away that is so fundamental. I know so many women are now going to face incredibly difficult sessions. I hear you. I support you. I stand with you. The consequences and the consensus of the american people, core principles of, quote,, quote,ofequality, liberty, dignity, and the stability of the rule of law demand that roe should not have been overturned. With this decision a conservative majority of the supreme court shows how extreme it is, how far removed they are from the majority of this country. They made the united states an outlier among developed nations of the world, but this decision must not be the final word. My administration will use all of its appropriate, lawful powers, but congress must act. And with your vote, you can act. You can have the final word. This is not over. Thank you very much. More to say on this in weeks to come. Thank yoU.
[Reporters. (Yelling) reporter yelling]O’connell: The president pledging to do everything in his power to protect women’s health. He says, let’s be clear, the health and life of women are now at risK. Let’s bring in nancy cordes. Nancy, what actions can the president take?
Reporter: We only heard him give one actual specific in that speecH. He says he is going to be directing the department of health and human services that abortion pills are more widely available, particularly to women who live in states where abortion is now illegal. What he did not say is whether he is going to push the F.D.A. To drop restrictions that currently limit the number of pharmacies that can provide those abortion pills. He didn’t announce any new executive orderS. It doesn’t mean those won’t happen in the days to come, but he didn’t lay out any specific plan right now to do things like issue travel vouchers to women so if they need to go a thousand miles to get an abortion, it can be a little cheaper for theM. He didn’t talk about giving service members time off if they live in a state that doesn’t allow abortions and they need to travel. So there are going to be a lot of questions on the minds of abortion rights activists about just how far he is willing to go personally. He says he is going to do everything he can. He called this ruling an extreme ideology and a tragic error, but we are still waiting for some of the details to be filled in.
O’connell: And, nancy, the president also making the case that this decision is not the final word. And he said congress should act, they could act, but he also said with your vote you can act. And laying out the case that this will be a central issue in the upcoming mid-term lacks elections.
Reporter: Very explicitly laying out a mid-term election message, saying that the only way to secure women’s rights is for congress to make the right to abortion a federal law. He said we don’t have the votes to do that right now, democrats don’t, so if people care about that, they need to vote in november and elect pro-abortion rights candidates at every level, at the state level and at the national level. That is an argument you’re already hearing today, norah, not just from the president of the united states but from the speaker of the house and virtually every democrat that has spoken so far.
O’connell: Nancy cordes at the white house. I want to bring in jan crawford because you heard him mention clarence thomas’ singular descent, in which he said he want to reconsider marriage equality. And they were saying this should go further.
Justice thomas has been the most conservative justice on the supreme court. He is the one who is willing to completely disregard precedent on a number of cases where other conservative justices are not. When you look at the majority opinion, which has five justices supporting the view, thomas is the only one. The other four say no, it does not. It could not be more clear. The right to contraception and the right to same-sex marriage — abortion is different because it involves a fetal life. There is an extensive analysis bulked up from the initial draft we saw where the majority is saying, no, we don’t agree with that. Thomas is only writing for himself.
O’donnell: Jan crawford. I want to bring in major garrett, who is there at the supreme court, which is a fortress with security, but also a number of protests.
Reporter: Norah, I’ve talked to protestors on both sides. They both use the same phrase: “This is an earthquake.” If so, this judicial earthquake has created a falt line right here in front of the supreme court. Those interested in this opinion have come in much larger numbers since 10:10 this morning. Some are curiosity-seekers, but some are deeply emotionally involved in this issue. I see tears on both sides, those who long opposed abortion rights, tears of gratitude, and those who support abortion rights, bitter tears about what the spreamplet supreme court has done. Americans coming in front of the supreme court, if you read the opinion today, the supreme court said don’t come here anymore. The supreme court has nothing more to say on abortion. Because they no longer recognize it as a constitutional right worthy of commentary. Go back to your states. But they’re coming here in larger numbers.
O’donnell: The president also calling for peaceful protests after the supreme court has struck down roe V. Wade. The president saying no intimidation or violence is ever acceptable. Our coverage will continue on cbs streaming, your local news, and we’ll have a wrap-up tonight on the “cbs evening news.” I’m norah o’donnell in for her to build a permanent life this close to you? I know that you’ve been hesitant to trust her, given the way that she abandoned you.
Kyle: I can’t erase all the things she put me through, and i don’t know if the scars will ever fade. But there’s no chance of that happening if I send her away without trying. I’ll wonder the rest of my life if I made the wrong choice.
Summer: Okay. Well, we’ll do our best and we’ll see what happens.
Jack: I have no idea what phyllis’ thinking is where you’re concerned.
Diane: Fair enough.
Jack: I do know there’s a better chance of her keeping her word if you don’t provoke her — something you’re very good at, something you seem to relish.
Diane: On my honor — and i do believe I have some now — i have no intention of kicking that hornets’ nest. Why would I?
Jack: Is that a real question?
