Young & The Restless Transcript

Nikki: Hi, darling.
Victor: Hi, sweetheart.
Nikki: What’s on your mind?
Victor: Trying to figure out my next move.
Nikki: On the chess board or with your search for abby?
Victor: Abby. Seems that jack and ashley and my investigative team have turned valencia upside down and so far found nothing.
Nikki: Are they still sure that’s where she went?
Victor: Yeah, it’s the only lead we have. You know, that’s what they’re focused on.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Nikki: Maybe somebody has good news.
Nikki: What, you’re not gonna answer it?
Victor: No. It’s an old colleague from newman enterprises, and I don’t feel like shooting the breeze with anyone right now. I’m thinking about my daughter.
Nikki: Well, you’re doing everything you possibly can.
Victor: Yeah, but what worries me is that my investigative team has interviewed almost everyone who served with him in iraq, you know? And none of them have heard anything from — from abby.
Nikki: That must have been difficult news to break to chance’s men.
Victor: He apparently was loved by everyone that he served with.
Abby: After everything you went through, all of the time that we were separated, you want to stay here?
Chance: Abby, I have to finish this mission.
Abby: No, you don’T.
Chance: Yes. They chose me for a reason. It’s ’cause I never give up and I’ve never failed to get the job done. If I back down now —
Abby: They’ll understand.
Chance: Everyone that was killed in that explosion, they were my colleagues, my friends. I have to track these guys down and bring them to justice. They deserve nothing less.
Abby: Look, I understand why you feel so strongly about this. It’s one of the reasons why i fell in love with you. Your sense of loyalty and duty, but what you’re talking about is revenge.
Chance: No, no, that’s not all this is. Okay? Yes, I want to make sure those criminals pay for what they did. But we were so close — we were so close to finding the ringleader of this operation. I have to see this through. If I don’t bring him down, then my team will have died in vain, and I can’t live with that.
Abby: This is not the way to do it — by putting your life in jeopardy again.
Chance: Abby. My section chief is waiting for me to recover, and then he’ll send me my orders. I have to stay.
Billy: Let me ask you a hypothetical question, and just humor me, okay?
Billy: You are approached by a reporter.
Lily: Newman media or another outlet?
Billy: Your choice. They ask you what the hell you’re thinking staying with the man that tanked your entire empire.
Lily: I know.
Billy: Why not just, you know, cut him loose and wash your hands of the whole thing?
Lily: You know, I would say i should, but I love him, we’re partners, and I believe in second chances.
Billy: Wow, I was half-joking, but that is one of the nicest things you’ve ever said to me.
Lily: [ Chuckles ]
[ Doorbell rings ]
Billy: Hold that thought.
Billy: Hi, mom. I, uh —
Jill: Aren’t you gonna invite me in?
Billy: Of course. Come here. Please come in, make yourself comfortable.
Lily: Jill. Oh. You look lovely.
[ Both laugh ]
Jill: You always know what to say.
[ Laughs ]
Billy: We’re having some tea. Can I — can I get you anything?
Jill: Yeah, I’d love some tea. Thanks.
Lily: And by the way, billy and I were so sorry to hear about chance.
Jill: Yeah. Uh, everybody told me not to come home, you know, so I could give abby some room to grieve, but I just couldn’t stay away, and then I found out that abby was missing and that jack and ashley are off in spain looking for her.
Billy: What’s that? We didn’t hear anything about that. Jack didn’t mention that when i saw him.
Jill: Yeah, well, you were too busy ruining my media division to pay much attention to family, weren’t you?
[ Cellphone rings ]
Adam: Yes, this is adam newman. Uh, I’m not sure why my father’s not answering your calls, but, um, he’s a very busy man. How can I help you? You sure about that? Thanks, I’ll let him know.
Ashland: 10 — that’s how many times you’ve checked the phone since we arrived.
Victoria: Are you keeping tabs on me?
Ashland: Well, you’re worse than I am. You know, when I was on the verge of making a killing, i couldn’t keep my eyes off my screen. I was always checking to see if the prey I was after had rolled over in defeat.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Well, I know you think I’m checking to see if billy and lily have spoken to jill about our offer to buy chanccomm.
Ashland: You’re not?
Victoria: No, I was actually hoping for an update from my father about jack and ashley’s search for abby.
Ashland: I should have known. Your family is focused on other issues right now.
Victoria: But since you brought it up, maybe we should think about how we’re gonna handle my father and adam if jill does give us the green light.
Ashland: Well, you know them best. How do you think they’ll react?
Victoria: I think they’ll be less than thrilled, since your lawsuit — or your dropping of your lawsuit — is key to their strategy. But I do think we should tell them about it before they find out from someone else.
Ashland: I don’t know if that’s such a great idea. I mean, why rock the boat if, ultimately, our offer gets rejected?
Victoria: Well, something tells me they already know. Plaque psoriasis, the tightness, stinging…
Abby: It’s almost like you don’t want to come home.
Chance: No. No, baby, of course I do. I want to be with you again. I want to meet our son and i want to hold him. It’s almost all that I’ve thought about since I’ve been holed up here.
Chance: I just can’t erase what happened to my team from my mind. I-I can’t erase the anger that i feel towards these bastards that attacked us or the guilt that i feel for surviving when the others didn’T.
Abby: You can’t blame yourself. You survived for a reason. And that reason is your son. So you could be a father to him, have a life with him, be a hero to dominic.
Chance: That’s what I told myself when I was lying there in the rubble, that I had to make it out of here, alive, for the baby and for you. Abby, don’t you understand? The men and women in that safe house, they have families, too. They had families. Families that they’ll never see again.
Abby: And that is tragic. And my heart breaks for them. But you need to come home. To your family. To me. To your son.
Chance: [ Sighs ]
Billy: I think it’s a little bit of an exaggeration to say that I ruined chanccomm. But the truth is we have taken a hit. Lily and I have talked, and we see a way forward.
Jill: Chanccomm was the other reason I got on that plane, when I got your message that you wanted to talk.
Billy: You called her?
Jill: Well, I’m glad someone called me, billy, ’cause you’ve been dodging my calls.
Lily: And, look, we’re — we’re so sorry about what happened with chance, you know? And he was such a great man, and I know how much you loved him, which is why I hate the fact that I had to call you while you’re dealing with his loss.
Jill: Well, I appreciate that, you know, but the world goes right on turning, even though we’re grieving.
Lily: I know, and that’s why I called, ’cause I know that time is of the essence and we have to decide the future of chanccomm.
Ashland: Adam, would you like to join us?
Adam: Oh, no, I’ve lost my appetite.
Victoria: Oh, that’s a shame, because the special today sounds delicious.
Adam: Oh, what is the catch of the day — chanccomm?
Victoria: What do you mean?
Adam: Is it true? Has newman/locke made an offer to buy it?
Victoria: Where did you hear that?
Adam: You know dad still has connections at newman enterprises. Someone tipped us off that you were gathering funds and you were doing your due diligence.
Victoria: Remind me to have hr refresh the staff on the consequences of violating their nda.
Adam: I’ll take that as a yes.
Ashland: We are not in the habit of disclosing potential or future business deals with anyone.
Adam: You swore up and down that you were on board with newman media’s plan. We looped you in to every detail. We covered for you. We trusted you. I mean, we treated you like family. Hell, we even kept you in the loop when you went to peru for your treatment. So why’d you go behind our back, huh?

Abby: I know that you’re grieving the loss of your team. I know how difficult that is for you.
Chance: You can’t understand.
Abby: Of course I understand. I have been grieving the man that I love.
[ Exhales sharply ] Me, your whole family, we’ve been mourning your loss. We all thought that you were dead. I mean, I haven’t been able to eat. I haven’t been able to sleep. All I have been thinking about is you and all of the moments that we had together and just wanting just one more day, one more second, one more minute to let you know how much you mean to me. So, yes, I understand that you wish you could change what happened and exact just a little bit of justice.
Chance: I was trained to complete my missions, no matter what, abby.
Abby: But you’re wounded. You barely made it out alive. Look, and the fact that your — your section chief is waiting to see how — how long it’s gonna take until you’ve recovered, i mean, that’s evidence that they might not send you into the field again.
Chance: I know, but it’s just a matter of time before I’m healed.
Abby: No, you can do it from home.
Chance: I’m the only one that knows what these guys look like.
Abby: Then send your boss a description. Let them catch them. Let them catch the target.
Chance: Abby, I am torn between my duty to — to see this through and my love for you. I mean, how am I supposed to choose one over the other?
Abby: [ Sighs ] Look, you’re right, you shouldn’t make any decisions right now because you are — you’re exhausted and you need some rest, so, um…why don’t we just go lay down. And I can hold you and I can feel your heartbeat and I can just feel how lucky I am that’re together again.
Chance: Abby, I —
Abby: Shh. Just go get some rest, okay? When you open your eyes, you’ll have a new perspective. Come on.
Billy: I still believe that there is a way to rectify this without involving my mother.
Jill: You allowed yourself to be hacked, and worse, you believed the word of a blackmailer, billy. You never learn. You were so blinded by your hatred of — of victor and adam that you just acted without any thought of the consequences.
Billy: You know what, mother? Everything was moving really fast, and if I could change some of the things that I did, i would do that.
Jill: But it’s too late for that, isn’t it? When I handed my media division over to you, you swore to me that you would be up to the challenge.
Billy: And I still think that you were right to believe in me. And, I mean, we accomplished a whole hell of a lot. And the only reason why I was holding on to gaines was to protect us from newman media. I had our company’s best interests at heart.
Jill: If you think that scoundrel is your idea of protection, god help us all.
Lily: Look, we don’t have to do this right now, okay? I’m sure that you’re emotionally exhausted and drained.
Jill: Billy’s excuses are what is exhausting me.
Billy: Look, there’s no excuses for the fact that i screwed up, okay?
Victoria: Not only is your outrage completely misplaced, that’s absolutely ridiculous. You’re the one who orchestrated this elaborate takedown of chanccomm.
Adam: And this was not part of the plan. Or was it? Has your new husband been playing us all along? Has he been making me and victor do all the heavy lifting so he could swoop in for the kill?
Victoria: How dare you. Ashland has risked everything. He’s put his entire reputation on the line. He — he’s the one who’s filing this lawsuit. It’s gonna be costly, arduous. It’s gonna be very public. All while he’s fighting for his life. So you know what? You should back off.
Adam: He knew what he was getting himself into. Nobody twisted his arm.
Victoria: Oh, I guess you weren’t paying attention, because chanccomm was originally newman media, so we have every right to take it back.
Adam: You see what she’s doing? This isn’t about some desire to run a media division, she’s protecting billy again.
Victoria: [ Laughs ]
Adam: She’s looking out for his job.
Victoria: Yeah, billy made his bed, and he can suffer the consequences. I’m not trying to save him or his job.
Ashland: I think we all need to take a breath and remember that business is business.
If we were to have made an offer, it was because we determined that it would be best for our company. All I did was initiate a lawsuit once they published that libelous article. I held up my end of the bargain, okay? And now chanccomm is fair game.
Adam: Thank you for clarifying that.
Adam: This was your idea, wasn’t it, victoria?
Victoria: Goodbye, adam. Have a nice day. You have always loved vicks vapors.
Ashley: Are you okay? Where are you?
Abby: I don’t know what to do. Um…I need your help. Chance — chance is…
Ashley: Honey, just take some deep breaths, alright? I know how scared you must be. We were all so worried about you. Where are you?
Abby: I’m in spain. I’m sorry for leaving without telling you. I just — I needed to find chance.
Ashley: I’m here, too, with jack.
Abby: Wait, wait, you’re here, in spain?
Ashley: Yes! We came to find you. Now, please, just drop a pin, let me know what your location is, and I will come to you.
Abby: No, no, you don’t understand. I have to do this alone.
Ashley: You’re not doing this alone. I am here for you, no questions asked, no judgment.
Abby: Maybe you can help. But just you, not uncle jack. You have to promise me, or i won’t tell you where I am.
Ashley: Of course I promise. Just tell me where you are and then stay put. I will be there.
Jack: Well, that was a bust. Woman in a restaurant thought she recognized the photo of abby, and — hey, what’s wrong?
Ashley: I found abby, jack. She found me. Go tell the pilot. We’re — we’re going to majorca.
Billy: Okay, look, this is — this is my fault that we’re in this situation, okay? I regret it. But I still believe that there is a way to turn this around. If I step down and ashland drops his lawsuit, we can stop the bleeding and we can repair our reputation.
Lily: You mean I can.
Billy: Yes, lily, you can. The point is we can salvage this.
Lily: Yeah, I don’t know. I’m not so sure about that.
Billy: I have all the faith in the world in you.
Jill: So do I. But I think she’s right. This is damage we might never be able to overcome.
Lily: So what do you think we should do?
Jill: I think billy should step down. I think it was the one smart thing you’ve said today.
Billy: Thank you.
Jill: I’m still not convinced it will have the newmans back off, but…[Sighs] At least it will allow lily to run chanccomm the way it should be run.
Billy: Okay, I accept that, as well.
Lily: There has been a new development since I spoke to you. Newman/locke offered to buy chanccomm.
Jill: [ Scoffs ] At a rock-bottom price, no doubt.
Lily: Well, yeah, they feel like the hit that we’ve taken and the inevitable hits that’ll come from adam and victor, that it might not be worth much.
Jill: Well, they’re probably right. I think it’s very interesting, though, that victoria is willing to go against her father again.
Billy: Okay, we don’t know if we can trust that offer yet. And as far as the newmans are concerned, I mean, do they want to start a war over this? Maybe they’re just toying with us.
Jill: [ Sighs ] This is just one big headache that I would prefer not to have.
Lily: So are you willing to sell?
Jill: [ Sighs ] God, I would hate to hand it over to them, you know, and have chanccomm swallowed up by victoria and ashland.
Billy: I agree.
Jill: [ Sighs ] What are the terms of surrender?
Lily: They would be willing to keep me on as ceo.
Jill: Lily, I would like to speak with you in private, please.
Lily: Uh, well, I’m — you know, billy and I are still life partners, so I would — I would like him to stay.
Billy: It’s okay. It’s alright. I, uh — I’ve been kicked out of worse places. You two talk.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Victor: Ashley. You’re on speaker phone. I’m here with nikki.
Ashley: And I’m here with jack.
Victor: Have you found anything?
Ashley: I’ve got the best news. We’ve located abby.
Victor: Where? Where is she?
Jack: She’s in majorca. We’re about to touch down in a few minutes.
Nikki: What is she doing there?
Ashley: I had some difficulty finding out where she was. When I find out why she was there, I’ll let you know.
Victor: Please tell her that we really want her to come home.
Ashley: She wants to see me, but alone. I’ll keep jack updated.
Jack: And I’ll fill you and nikki in on any details when i get them.
Victor: Thank you, jack. And kindly let her know how much we want her to come back home. Okay?
Ashley: Of course I will. I’ll be in touch soon.
Nikki: Well, what a relief.
Victor: [ Sighs ] Wow. Wow, wow, wow, wow. I’m so happy to hear that.
[ Sighs ] But now I’m concerned that ashley will actually be able to convince abby to come home, you know? She has a very stubborn streak in her.
Nikki: Wonder where she gets that from.
Victor: [ Chuckles ] Adam. My goodness, I’m glad you came by. I have some very good news.
Adam: Well, that is gonna have to wait because I just ran in to victoria and ashland, and you’re not gonna believe what they have done. No one can deliver your mom’s homemade short ribs.
“The young and the restless”
Adam: After I got off the call with elliot and he told me what was going on with chanccomm, I confronted ashland and victoria.
Victor: What did they say?
Adam: Oh, they wouldn’t confirm nor deny, but it was pretty clear that the rumors were true. I mean, after you brought ashland into the family, protected him, defended him, he double-crossed us. I mean, I’d expect this from victoria, but I thought ashland was on our side. Nikki, you must’ve known about this.
Nikki: Whether I did or not, it’s none of your business. I work for newman/locke, not newman media.
Adam: I’m sorry, I’m just — makes me angry, so forgive me.
Nikki: I appreciate how frustrating it is to learn you’re the last to know.
Adam: We need to plan a counterattack.
Adam: I mean, why are not more angry about this, dad? We could’ve done nothing. We could’ve let ashland suffer with his past being exposed, except we came up with this plan to protect him and victoria. And this is how they repay us?
Victor: Hmm. I just hope this was victoria’s idea. And if it was, it was forward-looking.
Adam: And a betrayal.
Victor: Well, that means she’s looking out for her company, you know? My only concern is that she did this to protect billy boy.
Adam: Yeah, I suggested as much. She denied it.
Victor: That means she’s trying to correct her mistake that she made when she sold that media division of newman enterprises to chancellor.
Adam: And it proves that we can’t trust ashland or victoria.
Victor: Son, in business, you can’t trust anyone. You know that they say the same thing about us. All I care about is cutting off billy boy at his knees. And getting ahold of chanccomm would be icing on the cake.
Adam: So you’re just gonna let them get away with this?
Victor: It has all just begun.
Phyllis: Hey, what are you doing here?
Billy: It’s a lounge. I’m lounging.
Phyllis: Well, you’re taking up space.
Billy: Then I’ll order a beer.
Phyllis: Hmm. Drinking alone?
Billy: Yeah, looks that way.
Phyllis: Lily’s not joining you?
Billy: I’ve been kicked out.
Phyllis: Mm, she finally came to her senses.
Billy: Yeah, don’t get too excited, okay? It’s only because she’s having a conversation with my mother.
Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Your mother. Jill and lily having a little conversation over you.
[ Exhales sharply ] That’s bad.
Billy: What I’m really worried about is my mother and my business partner discussing the fate of our company without my input.
Phyllis: Hmm, that does sound interesting. Do you mind if I join you?
Abby: Mom? Mom.
Ashley: Honey. I’m so happy to see you.
Abby: I can’t believe you’re here.
Ashley: Oh, my god, I knew you would be in spain and I knew that you would need me.
Abby: You were right.
Ashley: Oh, my god. Honey, you had us all so worried. You left without saying a word.
Abby: I’m sorry, I just — i didn’t want anyone to stop me from looking for chance.
Ashley: It’s okay. Listen, I know how difficult it must have been for you to reach out to me, and I’m so glad you did. I want to know everything that’s happened. What’s been going on with you?
Abby: You know that intuition, the one that led you here, that led you to find me, I — I had that same feeling that chance was still alive.
Ashley: I understand what it’s like to want something so badly that you just think you know what you know.
Abby: No, the thing is, is i was right. Chance is alive. He’s here.
Abby: Chance was thrown back by the explosion at the safe house, and when he came to, he — he found his way here, and he is here. He is asleep. He’s in the bedroom.
Ashley: I can’t believe this.
Abby: I know. [ Laughs ]
Abby: I know.
Abby: I know. [ Chuckles ]
Ashley: I can’t wait to tell nina and your father, and we got to let jack know.
Abby: Mom, um, the thing is, is that, um, chance, he physically is okay, but emotionally, he’s struggling.
Ashley: What, he’s been to hell and back and he’s got a long recovery ahead of him — is that what you’re saying?
Ashley: Okay. Well, I’ve got some good news, though, because jack is waiting on the plane. So all we got to do is let him know that we’re gonna be there and we’re gonna get chance the best possible care he can get when we get back home.
Abby: Mom, the reason why i called you, the reason why I was so upset is because chance, he doesn’t want to come home.
Ashley: Why not?
Abby: I knew who chance was when I married him. It’s one of the reasons why i fell in love with him — his sense of loyalty and dedication — but now I’m worried that that sense of dedication is too strong.
Ashley: He doesn’t want to leave?
Abby: He’s insisting on completing the mission.
Ashley: Oh. Oh, god. Okay, so he has a very, very fragile state of mind. Right, okay. Well, then we have to have empathy for him, right? As a soldier and as a leader.
Abby: And I guess I have to prepare myself for battle.
Chance: Abby, what have you done? If you’re washing with the bargain brand,
Chance: Abby, what the hell is ashley doing here? Did she come with you? Did you lie to me about coming alone?
Abby: I was just as shocked as you are that my mom was here in spain. Look, I called her for some support, and that’s when she told me that she was here with uncle jack, looking for me.
Chance: Jack, too? Are you kidding me? Abby, this is exactly what I was trying to avoid. How soon till word gets out that I’m alive and my cover’s blown?
Ashley: Chance, jack is still on the plan. He has no idea what’s going on, and abby only told me when I got here. She hasn’t told me anything.
Abby: I would never put you in jeopardy, chance.
Ashley: I would never, ever risk your safety or your mission. I promise you. I’m only here to support my daughter — and you, if you let me.
Chance: [ Sighs ] Look, I’m — I’m sorry I lashed out. But my decisions is the same. I cannot go home until I see this mission through.
Abby: You’re injured.
Chance: I will heal here. Now go home with ashley. You’re gonna have to play the grieving widow a little bit longer until I put this whole thing to bed. And we cannot tell anyone that i am alive, not even jack.
Abby: I’m not leaving you. If you’re staying, then I am staying.
Chance: Abby, it’s too dangerous.
Abby: When I thought that you died, part of me died with you. And I swore that if I ever — if I ever found you, if we were ever together again, then I was never gonna leave your side.
Chance: Abby —
Abby: So, look, there is no talking me out of it. I’m not leaving.
Chance: Please don’t say that. I will finish the mission, and then I will come home. I swear. You got to get back to dominic.
Abby: We both do. It’s time for you to meet your son.
Billy: You know, if you’re here to celebrate my downfall, I’m gonna give you a warning — there’s nothing you can possibly say to me that I haven’t already said to myself.
Phyllis: That’s not what I’m doing.
Billy: Why are you here? Because when was the last time we had a conversation?
Phyllis: I’m feeling charitable right now. You look like hell.
Billy: If you’re trying to make me feel better, phyllis, you’re missing the mark completely.
Phyllis: Alright, alright. Let’s just change the subject.
Phyllis: Um…jack and ashley, they’re in spain.
Billy: Yeah, I know. Jill told me right before she ripped into me about the debacle at chanccomm.
Phyllis: Ooh, and that was a debacle. I mean, that’s a mess.
Billy: Can you do me a favor? Can you take your charitable spirit just somewhere else?
Phyllis: Okay, you know what? You made an appearance in a dream that I had — a really crazy dream I had.
Billy: I really don’t want to hear about your dream.
Phyllis: It wasn’t a dream like that.
Phyllis: You were giving me advice. You. You know, advice on my love life. You were. I mean, it did seem like you had answers.
Billy: Yeah, well, it was a dream, right? Because the best thing anyone could do with my advice is to ignore it completely, with all of my failed relationships.
Phyllis: You were very wise in my dream.
Billy: Well, the real me has managed to alienate everyone in my orbit. And all I was trying to do was protect the people I care about and save chanccomm.
Phyllis: You know you’re feeling sorry for yourself, okay? You know, from one screw-up to another, it’s gonna be okay. Even us screw-ups deserve love. That’s what a really wise person in my dream said to me.
Jill: I’ve been very impressed with the way you’ve run chanccomm since the very beginning. I mean, neil — neil taught you well.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Oh, thank you for saying that.
Jill: Well, it’s the truth. And I do not hold you responsible for this catastrophe.
Lily: No, look, I — [Sighs] I know billy has made mistakes, but he had good intentions, you know? You heard him. He was doing what was best for his family and the company.
Jill: Well, that may be true, but it’s the way he went about it.
Lily: No, I know, I know. Look, he — he doesn’t play by the rules.
Jill: No, and he leaves us to clean up the mess. When chance died, it affected me very deeply. He was [Sighs] So young. I never expected to outlive him.
Lily: I can’t imagine what that’s like, losing a grandchild.
Jill: Well, it put a lot of things into perspective, you know? It, um, made me realize that it’s time for a change.
Lily: Are you planning something?
Jill: I’ve decided to step down from the day-to-day running of chancellor industries and move into a more advisory role.
Lily: Wow. [ Chuckles ] That’s huge. I mean, for me, you are chancellor industries, so you’re leaving some very big shoes to fill.
Jill: Thankfully, I know exactly who I want to fill them. I want you to take over for me as head of chancellor industries. Better skin from your body wash?
Ashland: We were just talking about you.
Victoria: Has jill made her decision?
Billy: Lily’s discussing the offer with jill back at our apartment now.
Victoria: Oh. They excluded you.
Ashland: Well, that’s a good sign.
Victoria: I’m sorry that it’s come to this, billy.
Billy: I find that hard to believe.
Ashland: You brought this all on yourself.
Billy: Yeah, guess I did.
[ Tablet rings ]
Phyllis: Jack, hey! How’s everything in spain? I hope you’re calling with good news.
Jack: Yeah, I am. We found abby.
Phyllis: Oh, my gosh, that is great to hear.
Jack: She’s with ashley right now.
Phyllis: How’s she doing?
Jack: From what I gather, she’s having a rough time accepting she’ll never see chance again.
Phyllis: Yeah. You know, with the love of her family and your guidance, she’s gonna get through it, you know?
Jack: Listen, I also have to call nina and jill, but I — i wanted to talk to you first.
Phyllis: Oh, thank you. I’m touched. I feel guilty that you called me first.
Jack: Well, what can I say? You’re on my mind a lot these days.
Phyllis: Well, that is contagious.
Jack: As soon as I get back, let’s get together, have some dinner, talk.
Phyllis: I’d love that.
Jack: I’d love that, too.
Phyllis: Okay, well, go make your calls.
Jack: Yeah, yeah, you’re right.
Phyllis: Hey, I’m glad abby is coming home safe.
Jack: Thanks, red. With any luck, we’ll all be en route to genoa city by tonight.
Abby: Hey. Um, before you make any decisions, there’s someone that you need to see. Look. There he is. There is our boy. Dominic. And it’s not some static photo or — it’s him.
[ Chuckles ] In real time, live-streaming. He’s your son. He is everything that we prayed for, chance. His sparkly little eyes and his handsome smile. And he’s healthy and strong. But he needs you. He needs his dad. You’re the most important person in his life. Look, you said that there was a reason you made it out alive. He is the reason. You need to come home.
Chance: [ Sighs ]
