Recap written by Eva

Devon tells Lily that he is worried about Nate and Elena’s relationship because when he spoke to Elena earlier he found out she was staying at a hotel. Devon explains to Lily that Elena was Nate’s voice of reason and without her he might be inclined to more risky behavior when it comes to Chancellor Winters. Lily doesn’t think Nate and Elena’s relationship is any of their business.

Nikki tells Victor that Deacon saw Diane being chauffeured around in a Bentley sometimes with a man in the car. Nikki shows Victor a picture Deacon gave her with a partial license plate of the Bentley and she says she found out the car is owned by an and entertainment company.

The mystery man in Diane’s hotel room reminds her they had an agreement and she hasn’t kept her part of their deal. The man wants to go to Kyle and Summer’s vow renewal because he thinks it would be the perfect time to reveal his identity to the Abbott family. Diane persuades him that now isn’t the right time to do that and later the man looks at pictures of the Abbotts on his phone.

The vow renewal begins with Summer wearing a beautiful dress and Harrison walking her down the aisle. Noah, Mariah, and Tessa officiate the ceremony together and they welcome the guests to the ceremony.

Diane: [Breathes deeply] Hello, victor. You’re looking well.

Victor: There something you need?

Diane: Well, I just haven’t seen much of you lately, not since you came by to say hello when I returned. But, um, I thought maybe we could catch up.

Victor: I recall I had two unfortunate occasions when I saw you. One was when you engaged in a slapping fest with my wife and the other when you crashed the Chancellor-Winters launching party.

Diane: Well, I’ve been on my best behavior ever since.

Victor: Really?

Diane: Mm.&

Victor: Good. Well, then I think that’s all the information you and I need to exchange, right?

Phyllis: Hey. This is interesting, seeing you two together.

Diane: Phyllis.

Phyllis: Hello.

Diane: Hello.

Phyllis: [Chuckles] I feel the need to sit down and watch. That’s all.

Diane: [Sighs]

Phyllis: [Clears throat]

[Whispering] What are you talking about? Do I have to ask?

*******************************

Victor: I apologize, but i don’t recall asking anyone to join me.

Phyllis: Mm. Well, I’m not going to join you.

Victor: Ah.

Phyllis: I have to-go order. I’m gonna get it and leave. I was here earlier for a lunch meeting, but we didn’t really have lunch, did we?

Diane: Mm. We met up with Summer and Kyle.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Victor: How riveting.

Diane: Mm. Uh… oh, look, Phyllis, here comes your to-go bag. I certainly don’t want your lunch to get cold.

Phyllis: Oh, don’t worry. It’s gazpacho. I’m all good.

Diane: Well, I have a few things I’d like to say to Victor in private.

Phyllis: I’m sure you do. Um…I wish you luck. Good luck.

Diane: Why do I need luck?

Phyllis: Because he sees right through you, just like i do. Good luck.

Victor: Hey, Phyllis, good seeing you.

Phyllis: You too.

Kyle: I’m afraid you got it wrong. Summer and I didn’t invite you to join us for fun.

Summer: In fact, it’s the exact opposite. This is serious, and it’s something that we wanted to discuss with both of you.

Diane: Oh. I-I see.

Phyllis: Okay, well, this doesn’t sound good.

Kyle: Summer and I want you to know we have two priorities — peace within the family and productivity within the business.

Phyllis: Uh, okay. Well, we’re on the same page. Those are my priorities, too.

Diane: And mine, as well. No question.

Phyllis: There’s nothing that I want more than to see, you know, Marchetti run smoothly.

Diane: And successfully. I hope you know how much i appreciate the opportunity you’ve given me.

Phyllis: Yeah, and it is my mission to make sure that all your dreams are realized with Marchetti.

Diane: The most important thing to me right now is family harmony. Being close to you is the only reason I’m here. I can’t tell you how lucky i feel. And it means everything to me to be accepted back into your lives.

“””**************************************

Phyllis: Um… okay, just so I get this clear. So, if she does something, I get fired, too? That just doesn’t seem right.

Kyle: It won’t matter who said what or who did what to whom. You will both — both — be immediately removed from the company.

Summer: No questions asked, no excuses tolerated.

Diane: But —

Phyllis: Okay —

Summer: This is non-negotiable, period.

Kyle: We warned you from the beginning to stay out of each other’s way. You were told that any conflict between the two of you would be a deal breaker.

Summer: And now you know that we mean it. Besides, the two of you have limited need to interact at Marchetti anyway.

Phyllis: Okay, well, that’s not entirely true. Diane is writing the press release for my division, so I’m going to have to be around her.

Kyle: True. But if you can’t handle the times when you do need to interact, you shouldn’t have the job in the first place. It’s just that simple. Understood?

Phyllis: Summer, are you really…

Diane: Kyle, don’t you think this is a little harsh?

Kyle: Mom, we have a company to run.

Summer: And we’re both committed to its success.

Kyle: Hey, we are in the middle of a huge transition. Moving a company from Milan to Genoa City is a mammoth of an undertaking, and this is a big step for Jabot and my father so, this affects him as well.

Summer: We just don’t need these kinds of distractions.

Kyle: Like I said, you’re both doing great work in your respective jobs. Neither of us want to lose you. We want to see you succeed and be a part of this adventure. But we are done making allowances.

Summer: We’re done with the attacks and the accusations. This is your last warning. Are we clear?

Recap written by Eva

Elena tells Nate she doesn’t know if she can live with this new version of him so she thinks they need to take a break from their relationship.

Phyllis tells Diane that she is putting an end to their feud so they can both do their jobs but she is only doing this because Nikki sent her a text message telling her to keep Diane off guard until she returns from her trip to Los Angeles. Diane is having lunch with Jack when she gets a text message from someone that says “I need to meet with you ASAP.”

Chelsea brings a baby blanket to Billy’s office and asks him to give it to Johnny and tell him she bought the blanket for him when she was pregnant with him. Billy tells Chelsea that she is overstepping because they all agreed that they would let Johnny decide what kind of relationship he wants to have with her and Connor. Chelsea goes to Victoria’s office later and asks her to help nudge Johnny into having a relationship with her. Victoria is angry that Chelsea is trying to insinuate herself into Johnny’s life. Victoria tells Chelsea that she and Billy will always do what is best for Johnny, so they are going to let him decide if he wants to have a relationship with her.

Phyllis: Were your ears burning earlier? I was talking to Mariah, and she was saying you were doing a great job…

Diane: Oh, that’s nice to hear.

Phyllis: …Considering your lack of experience.

Diane: Well, you’ll get to see my work soon enough. I have been assigned to write the press release for the launch of Marchetti home.

Phyllis: Really? A novice?

Diane: You seem surprised.

Phyllis: No, I’M… well, yeah. I’m surprised that they’re giving it to someone with such a lack of experience.

Diane: Maybe it’s just not that important.

Phyllis: Oh, it’s very important, very important. You know what? It’s fine. It’s fine. It’ll be really good practice for you, yeah, you know, with the amount of revisions and rewrites that I’ll have.

Diane: Oh, I love a good rewrite. Yeah, that’s where the fun comes in, you know, perfecting and streamlining. It’s an important part of my job, especially when the people in charge don’t know what they want.

[ Clicks tongue ] You know, I — I would have *thought* you had learned by now, but maybe — maybe it’s true what they say about teaching an old dog new tricks.

Phyllis: Excuse me?

Diane: I would have thought your attacks against me would be more clever than, say — I don’t know — excessive rewrites or — oh! — Planting a false document on my computer. You know, maybe I gave you too much credit.

Phyllis: Oh, Diane. You haven’t given me enough credit.

**************************

Summer: No. You’re being weird. You come over here.

Kyle: [Sighs]

[Chuckles] You know how much I love you. I would follow you anywhere in the world, even right across the room, because you are the center of my universe, you and Harrison. How long have I known you?

Summer: Mm, close to forever.

Kyle: And in all that time, you’ve been a million things to me. My rock. My advisor. My best friend. Partner.

Summer: Tormentor.

[Both laugh]

Kyle: My love. We’ve been through challenges together, and everyone keeps talking about how young we are, but all I can think about is, “Summer and I — we have lived a lifetime together.” And you’ve watched me go down paths that have led me away from you, only to find that I’ve always followed the path that brought me right back home.

Summer: It has been the wildest ride of my life, kyle.

Kyle: [Chuckles] But you didn’t sign up for this, raising a child that you didn’t give birth to.

Summer: Harrison is my son, biological or not.

Kyle: I know. And that’s what I love most about you, the way you open up your heart just to let people in. And I thank whatever higher power put me in your sights. I know we’ve had our obstacles.

Summer: You. It was definitely mostly you.

Kyle: But you never gave up.

Summer: Mnh-mnh.

Kyle: We’re the best part of each other’s stories, and every time I turn the page, you’re doing something else that blows my mind or makes me know we made the right choice when we chose each other. And I would choose you every day.

Summer: Even over ice cream?

Kyle: [Laughs] Yes, even over my beloved mocha fudge. Now, just please — just let me finish, okay?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

 

Phyllis: Party for the bride and groom without the mother of the bride. She’s here.

Summer: Mom, please, just let us explain.

Phyllis: And — and he’s here.

[ Breathes deeply ] Is this why you ran out of the coffeehouse so quickly? You just needed to ditch me to get to the party?

Summer: No, kyle and I had no idea that this is what noah was planning.

Noah: We never planned on excluding you from any of this. You were always going to be invited.

Phyllis: Yeah, just, um — it’s fine. Just — just second on the list. That’s all.

Noah: We never thought about first or second. We didn’t think that it mattered, okay? It’s supposed to be a happy celebration for kyle and summer. As the host, I take full responsibility for messing this up. Can you forgive me?

Nate: [ Sighs ] Hey there.

Elena: Hey. What’s all this?

Nate: Just some drinks before dinner. I have a pot of bolognese simmering in the kitchen.

Elena: Okay.

Nate: Do you want to take a hot shower before dinner? Or I can bring out our appetizers. It’s burrata with heirloom tomatoes.

Elena: That sounds delicious, and this place looks amazing, but if this is your attempt at trying to get me to forget about your plan for corporate espionage against your own family, or trying to convince me to jump on board, it’s going to take a lot more than champagne and flowers.

Lily: I cannot tell you how happy I am that everything worked out with nate.

Billy: I am, too. I think it’s great, and I’m a little surprised he showed up hat in hand with an apology, as well.

Lily: I mean, that took a lot for him to swallow his pride like that, admitting that he overstepped.

Billy: And you met him halfway. I think we appreciate the two of you reaching an understanding.

Devon: Yeah, no, I’m happy that we did, too, ’cause I meant what I said, that I wanted to put this conflict behind us ’cause this constant back and forth isn’t good for us or the company. And I also agree with your suggestion to give him more opportunities to prove that his ideas will work.

Lily: Yeah, I mean, it’s the only way to move forward.

Billy: Yeah, see his ideas in action instead of in a pitch deck.

Devon: And then we will see if the ideas actually do work.

Billy: You’re not saying you’re setting him up for failure, are you?

Victor: By the way, I heard from your mother. Apparently, she met with this deacon sharpe character.

Victoria: Thank you. How did it go?

Victor: Well, she didn’t elaborate, but she hinted that she learned some details about diana jenkins’ life in los angeles.

Victoria: Well, all I know is that I’ll feel a lot better when mom’s home and there were thousands of miles between her and deacon sharpe.

Victor: Yeah.

Victoria: In the meantime, can I run something business-related past you?

Victor: Sure. Go ahead.

Victoria: I’d like newman to become the majority shareholder of chancellor-winters.

[Sfx: Stomach gurgling]

Additional sponsorship

provided by…

Devon: Yeah, no, billy, I would never intentionally set somebody up to fail, especially at my own company. I’m just — I’m agreeing to do what everyone’s urged me to do, and that’s let nate run with some of his ideas despite my reservations and see if they’ll work.

[ Cellphone pings ]

Lily: Is there a problem?

Billy: No, it’s chelsea. She wants to meet for a drink to talk about something, but I’ll just — I can tell her I’m in the middle of something.

Lily: No, it’s fine. Honestly, you should just go. She might have rethought the idea of doing the podcast solo, and I think we need all the content that we can get. We should be firing on all cylinders if and when we go public. So I’ll meet you at home. We have everything under control here.

Billy: Okay. I will do that and I will talk to chelsea and it’ll give you time to talk about going public face-to-face. See you later.

Devon: Ooh.

Lily: Should we do what he suggested?

Devon: I am a little talked out on the subject.

Lily: Yeah, I’m sure. I know we’ve been so focused on chancellor-winters that we haven’t gotten to talk about anything personal. How is amanda doing? I heard that naya’s husband collapsed from exhaustion? Is he okay?

Devon: Yeah, yeah, he’s doing better, but just created a whole lot of stress for amanda. I’m supposed to fly out and spend some time with her this weekend. But I wish there was more that I could do to support her and the family. I feel like I’ve been neglecting her a lot lately. Which is another reason why all this unnecessary back-and-forth energy with nate has gotten to me ’cause I should be and I could be focused on amanda.

Nate: You’ll be happy to know I had a very good conversation with devon and lily today. It was very healing. I made amends with my family, and I’m going to stay on at chancellor-winters.

Elena: Okay. Well, that’s a 180. How exactly did that happen?

Nate: I admitted that I let my anger and pride get in the way of the big picture.

Elena: Uh-huh. But you did that with an agenda in mind, didn’t you? Because staying on with the company is part of your plan. Are you still working with victoria as her man on the inside, or have you rethought that?

Nate: I’m still going ahead with my original idea, but I hope you can believe that this will ultimately be the best move for everyone involved as well as for chancellor-winters. I’m going to use this public offering and victoria’s purchase of the majority stake to unify my family.

Elena: You’re going to have to explain that.

Nick: Phyllis, tell my boy you forgive him.

Phyllis: [ Scoffs ] I forgive you.

Mariah: Okay, everybody, who’s ready to dance?

Phyllis: I’m not. I’m not ready to dance.

Mariah: Nick. Nick, come on. I always count on you to — to bust a move.

Nick: No, let me go check on summer.

Mariah: Okay. [ Chuckles ]

Jack: The place looks great,

Allie: Doesn’t it? Champagne, anyone?

Diane: The decor is amazing. Everything fits. Except for one thing that’s sticking out like a sore thumb.

Kyle: Mom.

Diane: I’m sorry, but it’s hard not to notice her big, pouty face. It’s like she’s about to throw a tantrum.

Traci: Maybe we will all behave ourselves today.

Summer: Dad, I just don’t know what to do anymore. Will you please go talk to her?

Nick: Yeah.

Summer: Thank you.

Nick: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: [ Sniffles ]

Nick: Can I talk to you for a minute? Look, I get it. The last person you want to see right now is diane. I don’t blame you.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] I’m spinning out. I lost my job at marchetti because of her. A job that I loved. I got to work with our daughter.

Nick: What happened?

Phyllis: She happened. She lost her mind, and I got punished for it.

Nick: Alright, I need you to just take a breath for a minute. I need you to leave it alone for tonight, okay? It’s about them. Noah put in all this work. Kyle and summer deserve to enjoy their party. Phyllis, come on. Don’t ruin that. Life… doesn’t stop for diabetes.

Victoria: It seems that nate is frustrated with the current leadership style at chancellor-winters. So he came to me and told me that he’s looking for a change. He was fishing around for opportunities at newman. I told him I would keep him in mind now that we’ve made all of these new acquisitions.

Victor: Huh. Well, he would be good to have on the team. But why in the world would he give up so easily on his family business?

Victoria: He’s not giving up. In fact, nate told me that chancellor-winters is planning to go public soon. He offered himself as my inside man, that he would feed me information and that he would sell his shares to newman so that we could have the majority stake.

Victor: And why would he do that?

Victoria: Because I agreed to put him in charge once newman has control.

Victor: I think he’s playing a very risky game, you know. What if the situation at chancellor-winters implodes and they go after nate? You said something earlier about him being willing to give you some inside information. You know what that means, don’t you? That’s called insider trading. That can have enormous legal ramifications.

Victoria: But when do we ever shy away from a risk?

Victor: You’re tough, like your father. I love it. So let’s do it.

Chelsea: Hi.

Billy: Hey.

Chelsea: Thanks for coming to meet me.

Billy: Yeah, of course. I was in lily’s office when I got your text. She encouraged me to come. We’re both hoping that you are reconsidering doing the podcast solo.

Chelsea: You don’t need to name-check lily to make it clear you’re only here about work. I promise not to misread the situation, make you the target of any unwanted displays of affection.

Billy: Fair enough.

Chelsea: But I should apologize if I lured you here under false hope. I still don’t have any interest in doing the podcast by myself.

Billy: [ Clicks tongue ] Okay. What would you like to talk about?

Chelsea: Well, I wanted to thank you for letting me spend time with johnny at the pool the other day. Connor had a blast.

Billy: Yeah, no, it was great. They had a great time. I mean, they’re cousins, right? They get along really well. It was really nice to see johnny talking about video games with someone besides katie. She doesn’t really put up with him. She kind of covers her ears and runs away.

Chelsea: Connor would be glad to go toe-to-toe with him any day. Um…

[ Sighs ] I don’t want to mince words.

Billy: Mm-hmm.

Chelsea: The hangout the other day was such a success, I think it’s time we told johnny and connor they’re more than just cousins.

Kyle: You think you made some headway with your mom?

Summer: [ Sighs ] I don’t know. But, honestly, right now, I would like nothing more than to just forget about our mothers and enjoy this night.

Phyllis: Hey, everyone, everyone, I want to make a toast. As the mother of the bride….

Diane: Ugh, here we go.

Phyllis: …I’d like to make a toast. So I want everyone to know that diane and i are perfectly capable of being in the same room together. Isn’t that right, diane?

Diane: Oh, of course.

Phyllis: Cheers.

Diane: Yeah, cheers.

Phyllis: Cheers. And this is an incredible party, noah, this is beautiful, what you’ve done. I wish I still owned the grand phoenix. I really do. I mean, this place will be a huge hit.

Noah: Thank you.

Phyllis: Yeah, and I —

[ Sighs ] I want to thank you for including me in this party. So let’s toast to one of the best couples I know, my daughter, summer, and kyle. Cheers.

Jack: Summer and kyle.

Together: Cheers.

Phyllis: Yeah. Hey, let’s party. Okay?

Noah: Yeah.

Charli xcx: ‘Cause you’re everything I’ve spent my whole life fightin’

so when I walk away, it’s not your fault

I always let the good ones go

and, baby, you couldn’t

Nate: I know when i originally defended this idea to you, some of my bitterness and anger with devon came through.

Elena: Some of it, nate? All of it did. And you couldn’t hide it, which is what was so concerning. Coming at anything with that much heightened emotion, it can cause a lot of damage.

Nate: I promise you, I’m not being driven by revenge. What’s fueling me is my desire to prove what chancellor-winters can become under my leadership.

Elena: Don’t you think devon and lily will feel blindsided?

Nate: Yes, at first. But I plan to be the opposite of what devon was as a leader. I am willing to embrace his input as well as lily and billy’s, too, to show how all four of us can collaborate and to create something amazing.

Find nutrients.

Find energy.

Lily: Well, if it makes you feel any better, I know that amanda can feel your love and support, and she’ll really appreciate you visiting.

Devon: Yeah, I hope so. And it will be nice to have some one-on-one time without the pressures of work, you know?

Lily: So, listen, I think that we should talk about taking the company public, because I want you to be as excited as I am of the opportunities that this could afford us, you know, and the kind of things that we could bring to fruition.

Devon: Yeah, I know that you want me to be as excited as you are, and I wish that I was ’cause you made a great pitch, and I know that jill certainly thinks that it’s the right thing to do, but I still have a lot of concerns about it. And the biggest concern is losing control of our family business that neil and I worked very hard to build and then strengthened by joining up with you.

Lily: Yeah, look, I agree with you. I have the same concern. But, you know, we’ve identified the potential problem, and I think that we can structure the ipo in a way where we maintain 51% of the shares. So that way we have the final say on everything.

Devon: Well, let me tell you, that would be the only way that I would agree is if it was for sure that no one could override our decisions. You know?

Lily: See, this is why you and I make a great team, right? We can have opposing points of view, but then we can have a consensus. So do we have one?

Devon: Because I trust you so much, and I know that you just want to see this company succeed as much as I do, if you really think this is the best course of action, then, yeah, I’m on board.

Lily: Yes.

[ Both chuckle ]

Nate: I really need you with me on this. Your support, your love, to know that you understand where I’m coming from and why.

Elena: I want to believe in you, and I want to believe that this can work. I can feel how passionate you are about it and I understand that you think this is the right thing to do and I’m your partner. I want to be able to support you.

Nate: Okay, can I just stop you there? ‘Cause that’s all I need to hear, that the woman I love has my back. I can risk angering my family to get to my ultimate goal, but I cannot risk losing you.

Billy: Look, chelsea, both victoria and i feel like this is not the best time to talk to johnny about you. I’m sure you can appreciate. Look, as much as I am glad that ashland locke is not in johnny’s life any more or victoria’s, victoria did an amazing job protecting him from everything that ashland was. In johnny’s life, he is dealing with the loss of his stepfather.

Chelsea: I understand. I do. But I think johnny will consider this great news. I mean, he has a brother. How cool is that?

Billy: I get it. And it is. It’s just there’s a lot to this.

Chelsea: It’s a complicated situation.

Billy: Yes.

Chelsea: And, look, I’m grateful that victoria has already explained to johnny that he’s adopted, but he’s getting older. He’s going to wonder about his biological mom. Why not get ahead of the questions — who she is, where she is, why she’s not the person raising him?

Billy: Well, to be honest, he’s already had those questions, and we’ve done our best to avoid them at this point.

Chelsea: Because you don’t want to lie to him.

Billy: Look, you make good points, okay? I’ve said that before, but it’s not just up to me or you. This is an important decision for victoria.

Chelsea: Which is why, when you mentioned that when I first broached the topic with you, I went directly to her. But, billy, I have to know, when do you intend to get victoria on board?

Mariah: Alright, excuse me, everybody. Hi, guys. Sorry. Sorry. Alright. So most of you know that this was supposed to be a double surprise. First, the vow renewal that kyle hatched for summer, and then this party planned by noah. So I thought it would be an appropriate time to announce my surprise. Kyle did me a favor, and so I want to return it by appointing myself best person and giving a speech.

[ Laughter ]

Nick: I did not know we could just appoint ourselves things. If that’s the case, I’ll appoint myself king of the dance floor.

Mariah: Oh, yes. I don’t think anybody would dispute that. And, by the way, I’m just kidding about the best person thing. I’m sure that you would rather have harrison or jack. So this is the speech that I would give, as one of kyle’s best friends. You know, I, for one, am thrilled that kyle and summer are renewing their vows. As someone who recently married the love of my life, I know how meaningful it is to have your dearest friends and family bear witness. So to kyle, I am so proud of the man, the husband, and the father that you have become. And to summer [Chuckles] I am truly, truly happy for both of you. I look forward to not only working alongside, but raising our families together for years to come. To summer and kyle.

Together: Summer and kyle. Psoriatic arthritis, made my joints stiff,

“The young and the restless”

will continue. Hey! It’s me! Your dry skin!

Mariah: Oh.

Noah: Alright, well, I’d like to thank everyone for coming out to be a part of this. You know, for me, it’s kind of like killing two birds with one stone, ’cause, on one hand, I get to have a soft open for my new club, and on the other, I get to score some solid big-brother points for throwing this little soiree for the bride and groom.

[ Laughter ]

Nick: My boy’s always thinking.

Noah: Another reason that i wanted to have this party was ’cause it gave me a second chance at my brother-of-the-bride speech. Now, I realize that the first one I gave at your wedding in milan, it… well, it didn’t adequately describe the incredible woman that you’ve become. Yeah, maybe that’s ’cause I was too far away when you were blossoming into this amazing person. But I’m so glad that we’re both home now and we can make up for lost time. See, I see this as a celebration not only for summer and kyle’s love, but one for family and home. So here’s my older sister. You deserve every happiness. And to kyle, the guy who’s lucky enough to have her. Cheers, everyone.

Together: Cheers.

Billy: I am going to ask you to be a little bit more patient. You just sprung this up on us, and I haven’t had enough time to talk to victoria about it.

Chelsea: No time like the present.

Victoria: Well, how convenient to find you two here together. I’ve actually been meaning to talk to you both. Johnny told me that he had a little hangout with connor the other day by the pool. Given everything that you’ve just asked me, chelsea, I don’t really appreciate the two of you organizing this little outing behind my back, so what exactly are you up to?

Nate: Guess we both had the same idea. Late-night snack. Couple bites of the dinner we didn’t get to.

Elena: No. I’m not hungry. I’m worried.

Nate: I thought we settled everything.

Elena: I have a better understanding of what you’re trying to accomplish and your reasoning behind it, but… I still don’t think I can get behind this.

Nate: Why is it impossible for you to see things from my perspective? No matter how many times I try to explain that this is my best option? My only option? You know what? Never mind. It’s not going to happen. You are as limited in your view of what I can accomplish as devon is. I guess the two of you have more in common than I thought. I’m getting some fresh air.

[ Door opens, closes ]

Billy: There was nothing sneaky or subversive at all. We decided to get the boys together. They’re cousins. I mean, you were out of town, and there’s nothing unusual about it at all.

Victoria: Please. Do you really expect me to buy that? You’ve both, on separate occasions, asked me to tell johnny that chelsea’s his biological mom and connor’s his brother. So now you’re going to pretend that that was just a coincidence?

Billy: Victoria, I think it’s a tricky situation. We’re all trying to navigate it the best we can, maybe even lay a little bit of groundwork.

Victoria: Yeah, that’s exactly what you’re trying to do. You’re trying to lay the groundwork and back me into a corner.

Chelsea: Victoria, you’re right. I am so sorry. You are johnny’s mom. We should’ve spoken to you before we got the boys together. I’m not trying to do anything behind your back.

Victoria: Yes, I know that. And we already talked about this, and I said I would think about it. And I have kept my word. I have thought about it. But the bottom line is that johnny and katie have been through a lot lately, and this is not a good time for this.

Chelsea: I’m trying not to get emotional here. I just — I need you both to know how important this is to me. And not because I’m trying to insinuate myself into johnny’s life at all. It’s because I’m worried about what emotional issues this could cause for him down the road when he realizes his biological mom was in his orbit and she never told him. You know, I mean, with all of this dna testing these days, he will discover one day that his half brother and biological mom were not only living in the same town, but they were the people he would see at family gatherings, and he’s going to realize that his relatives all knew it. He’s going to realize that he was the only person who didn’T. Do you realize the damage that could cause?

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Summer: You know, despite the earlier drama with our mothers, this has turned into a really lovely night.

Kyle: We made the right choice moving back to genoa city. This is where we should be building our lives, around everyone we care about.

Summer: You’re right, of course, but it’s also kind of like, be careful what you wish for.

Kyle: [ Chuckling ] Exactly. There will always be bumps in the road, but nothing can replace the importance of family.

Summer: Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

Kyle: [ Sighs ] Let’s do it.

Summer: Mom, first of all, i want to thank you for being here, and I’m so sorry about that botched arrival earlier. That was no one’s intention. You have to know how much it means to me and kyle that you’re here for the celebration.

Kyle: Maybe it was all the speeches about family and home, but summer and I would like to see you back at the office tomorrow.

Diane: What?

Summer: We’re giving you one more chance, but this is seriously the last one.

Diane: Oh, I’m so grateful. Thank you.

Phyllis: Yeah, thank you very much. I’m really happy to have my job back. I have so much more to accomplish at marchetti. I really do. So I look forward to a long tenure without incident.

Diane: Yes, phyllis and I are going to find a way to put down our swords and work together.

Kyle: Please mean it.

Summer: Don’t make us regret this.

Diane: We won’T. We won’T.

Phyllis: Oh, yeah, promise. Promise.

Diane: Now, both of you should put aside any unpleasantness that we’ve caused and just go and enjoy yourself.

Phyllis: Yeah, you don’t have to worry about us anymore.

Kyle: Okay.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Victoria: Of course I want what’s best for johnny. He’s my priority. He always has been. That’s why I never hid the fact that I wasn’t his biological mom.

Billy: She was always so wonderful with him. She was always honest. She always told him that she was not the mother that carried him, and those were difficult conversations to have, but she did not shy away from them. Saying that, maybe it’s time we tell johnny about chelsea.

Victoria: It’s always been my intention to tell him at some point when it was right. It’s just that time, it’s gone by so quickly.

[ Sighs ] When we when we tell johnny — if we tell him — it’s going to change everything for all of us. You know that. And then johnny has to decide what kind of a relationship that he wants to have with you and connor. And if he’s not ready to process this and — and if he doesn’t suddenly want to spend more time with you, I need you to be willing to accept that.

Chelsea: I am.

Victoria: Okay. And, of course, you’re going to have to explain things to connor. He may not react the way that you expect him to. He’s been through a lot, as well.

Chelsea: I know.

Victoria: I would only ask that you don’t tell connor until we have a chance to speak to johnny about it, because he’s the one that’s going to be the most affected by this, and his feelings should be considered first and foremost, of course.

Chelsea: Of course. Of course. And I just hope that johnny will want to know connor as his brother.

Victoria: And I imagine that you’re also hoping that he’ll want to know you in a different way, but you should be prepared that he might not want that, and you have to accept his decision, because I’m only willing to take this step if that’s the way it’s going to be. (Vo) when you live with moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Summer: [ Giggles ]

Jack: Nice to see our kids so happy, isn’t it?

Diane: Oh, it is. A mother couldn’t ask for more.

Jack: So you mind telling me what that little tte–tte was about between you and the kids and phyllis?

Diane: Oh, well, they decided to give us another chance at marchetti. I mean, to be honest, I was really surprised. I thought I had blown it this time. Wait a minute. Don’t tell me you had something to do with that.

Jack: No, no, not at all. Any decisions made at marchetti are kyle’s and summer’s to make. I was very impressed with your taking responsibility and offering your resignation.

Diane: Well, I’m trying to make better choices these days.

[ Sighs ]

[ Cellphone pings ]

Jack: Everything alright?

Diane: Uh…oh, yeah. It’s just spam.

Chelsea: I agree to those parameters. They are fair and sensible. And thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Victoria: Then we have a plan.

Billy: I think victoria and i need to get together and have a conversation about when and where to tell johnny.

Victoria: And then it would be up to him.

Chelsea: Understood. I can’t believe it. Thank you. Thank you.

[ Sighs ]

Audra: You’re nate hastings.

Nate: You got me. I apologize. Were you a patient of mine?

Audra: I recognize you from the press coverage of the chancellor-winters lunch party. You made quite the splash.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] Didn’t realize at the time what kind of waves that splash would make. So what is it you do that has you memorizing names and faces of people in the business news?

Audra: Audra charles. My name’s not ringing a bell? You’re lucky I’m not offended easily.

Nate: Should I recognize it?

Audra: Yes, considering I’m meeting with your team at chancellor-winters tomorrow, jill brought me in to help take your company public.

Nate: I hadn’t heard the decision was official.

Audra: It’s not. But I hope it will be by morning.

Nate: In that case, can I join you? I’d be happy to answer any questions you have about the company or about our plans. Anything I can do to help. I’m looking forward to a smooth and successful venture.

Nick: How you holding up?

Phyllis: I’m okay.

Nick: I’m very proud of your restraint.

Phyllis: Thank you. Excuse me.

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

Billy: I mean, how could she mislead us on her intentions in that way?

Victoria: This really surprises you that a former professional con artist would lie to get what she wants?

Elena: I don’t know if I can be around this version of you anymore.

Nate: What are you saying?

Elena: I think we need some time apart.

Diane: How did you get in here?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Diane: I am warning you, phyllis. Back off.

Phyllis: You’re warning me? Really? Diane, this is one of those teachable moments. Really, it’s teachable. I mean, “back off.” It doesn’t really have a lot of heat. “Back off or…” is really a threat. So you want to try it again?

Diane: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. Back off!

Jack: Diane. I can hear you all the way down the hall. What is going on here?

Phyllis: Diane seems to be reconnecting with her authentic self.

Diane: No, I’m sorry, jack. I just — things got a little heated, and —

Jack: Well, try to cool things down, would you? Kyle and summer just laid down the law. They made very clear boundaries about this kind of thing. If they’d walked in on this instead of me, you two would be out of a job right now.

Tessa: [ Sighs ] Do you really think I can get all of this done by tonight?

Mariah: Oh, yeah, I have no doubt. We’re going to finalize everything when I see noah later.

Tessa: Okay.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

Summer: Hate it. Sad. Help me.

Kyle: These are, um —

Summer: Don’t even say it.

Kyle: What are we going to do?

Tessa: Uh, this was not part of the plan.

Mariah: It’s okay. It’s fine, alright?

Tessa: This could ruin everything.

Mariah: We’re just going to go in there, you’re going to smile that gorgeous smile, pretend like it’s any other day. We’re just here getting coffee. No one’s going to suspect a thing, alright?

Traci: [ Gasps ] Oh. Oh. [ Chuckling ] Allie. Oh, my god. What are you doing here?

[ Both chuckle ]

Allie: Terrifying you, apparently.

Traci: No, no, no, no. I’m fine. I mean, my tablet is still dry, and my tea is still wet, so I’m good, but what about you?

Allie: I’m doing okay. Why do you ask?

Traci: Well, because I’m used to having this couple of hours to myself in here. You know, I can spread out and I can work and I can procrastinate to my heart’s content because all of you are at jabot.

Allie: Working on anything interesting?

Traci: Yes, as a matter of fact, I am. It is about this brilliant scientist who loves being in the laboratory until one afternoon she’s home instead of at work.

Allie: Everything’s fine, traci.

Traci: [ Chuckles ] Well, honey, I know that it must be grueling doing an internship. I know that, you know, you have to do all this grunt work, and you don’t get very much, I don’t know, recognition or credit for what you do.

Allie: You know, actually, ashley is making sure I get plenty of special projects and recognition. I love it there.

Traci: Okay, um… even with phyllis and diane there, too? I mean, I know they’re in a different division than you are, but you’re all still in the same building.

Allie: I try to keep my head down and just do the best job that I can.

Traci: Well, that must be difficult, especially with a couple of chaos junkies like phyllis and diane, I know…

Allie: Oh, traci, stop.

Traci: …Dragging you into their cage matches.

Allie: Yes, it’s true.

Traci: And that’s me being nice. They are like a chemical reaction.

Allie: With two highly combustible compounds?

Traci: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. They’re a handful on a good day, but put them together, something is bound to explode.

Diane: I hope you’ll accept my apology for my outburst. Excuse me.

Jack: Phyllis —

Phyllis: I didn’t do anything, jack. I was just — I was just doing my job.

Jack: I can see it’s killing you not to gloat. I won’t keep you from your glee any longer. Just be happy that summer and kyle didn’t see this.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ]

Jack: You’re not off the hook, by the way.

Allie: Yes, diane and phyllis, they are a handful.

[ Both chuckle ] But they have actually not been a problem for me.

Traci: I am so glad to hear that.

Allie: Yeah, they have given me a wide berth ever since i stood up to them and made clear that I am nobody’s pawn.

Traci: Well, good. It is really important that you set boundaries. Good for you.

Allie: Thank you.

Traci: And you are lucky that they don’t work in the lab.

[ Both chuckle ]

Allie: You know, if I time my days just right, I don’t have to run into either of them.

[ Both laugh ] But I do love it there. Ah. With chemicals, you know, you know exactly what they’ll do in a given situation.

Traci: Yeah, they’re a lot easier to predict than most people, aren’t they? Ashley used to always find it so peaceful to work in the lab.

Allie: It really is. And, my gosh, ashley, she is such a legend. I mean, the things that she’s been able to accomplish. And working at the place where my dad found so much joy at, it’S… oh, it’s — it’s [Chuckles] More than I could have dreamed of.

Traci: Alright, I’m just going to have to come out and ask you.

Allie: Yeah?

Traci: If you are loving the laboratory life so much, why aren’t you there instead of here today?

[ Both chuckle ]

Allie: Things and reasons I just — I just can’t tell you about, not just yet, traci.

Mariah: Come on. Just be nonchalant.

Tessa: I can’t be nonchalant when they’re literally ripping apart photos of me from the marchetti photo shoot. I am so chalant right now.

Mariah: It’s going to be fine.

Tessa: Hi.

Kyle: Hi.

Mariah: Hi, guys.

Tessa: So was my modeling photo shoot just, like, a total waste of time? I know it took me a while to warm up, but I thought I finally got the hang of it.

Kyle: What is she talking about?

Tessa: Well, I saw you looking at the photos and things you were saying.

Kyle: Oh! Oh, no. No, no, no.

[ Both chuckle ] We’re not looking at the marchetti photo shoot.

Summer: Which was fantastic, by the way. But also problematic in another way. I could not choose which photos to use for the layout. They were all so good.

Tessa: You really mean that?

Mariah: She wouldn’t believe me. They loved you. They’re calling you marchetti’s brightest star.

Tessa: Oh, stop. Seriously.

Mariah: See? I told you she wouldn’t believe me.

Tessa: She’s biased.

Mariah: Okay, well, maybe the two of you can talk some sense into her.

Summer: Tessa, your smile alone could sell a million dresses.

Tessa: Thank you so much for saying that and for your support. I mean, you guys know I’ve never done anything like this before, and I didn’t want to let you down.

Summer: You could never.

Mariah: So what were you guys looking at that was so disappointing?

Kyle: We were looking at different concepts for our vow renewal.

Mariah: What? Oh, my god. You’re doing what now?

Summer: We are getting married again — in town, this time, in front of all of our family and friends.

Mariah: Wow. [ Chuckles ]

Tessa: Aww, what a sweet and romantic idea. I love it.

Kyle: But we are having a difficult time trying to find the perfect theme.

Summer: You know what i think? I think we should step back and let it come to us.

Kyle: That’s a great idea.

Summer: Let’s turn our attention to our gorgeous model. Tessa, you killed it.

Tessa: Aww, thank you so much. But, I mean, I couldn’t have done it without you. I mean, your idea for the brand? I mean, you’re making it more fabulous than it already was.

Summer: Aww.

Kyle: Our wives are a mutual admiration society. Who could have predicted it?

[ Laughter ]

Mariah: Alright, I want to see these ideas.

Summer: Oh, yeah, it’s not…

Diane: [ Sighs ]

[ Sniffles ]

[ Sighs ] Whatever it is you tracked me down to say, it’s, uh — it’s not necessary. I am — I am already beating myself up for what you overheard. I — I really screwed up, jack.

[ Sighs ]

Jack: I’m not going to disagree with you.

Diane: I’ve just — I’ve just been hiding my feelings inside and just stuffing them down for so long, and then today just really pushed me. I mean, first I had this uncomfortable, borderline threatening conversation with victor, and then, you know, yet another run-in with phyllis. I’m not — I’m not — I’m not trying to make excuses. I’m just trying to explain.

[ Sniffles ] And for all I know, you know, it cost me a job with my son, a chance to be closer to him.

[ Sniffles, sighs ] I just hate it when I let people like victor and phyllis get to me. But what I hate most of all is that I brought this on myself.

[ Sighs ]

[ Sniffles ]

Jack: Wait, wait, wait. Who are you calling now?

Diane: [ Sighs ] Kyle. He deserves to know the truth. No matter who you are,

[ Indistinct conversation ]

Noah: Hey.

Mariah: Hey, noah.

Tessa: Hi. Hi.

Kyle: Good to see you, man.

Noah: Yeah, is this a private conversation, or can anyone jump in?

Summer: No, we were just talking about tessa’s photo shoot the other day.

Noah: Oh, are you saying it was a hit because of all the practice we got making the album cover?

Tessa: Yeah, something like that.

Kyle: And celebrating our impending wedding redo.

Noah: What? You guys are getting married again?

Summer: We are — here this time so that everyone can come and see what true love looks like.

Noah: Ah. Sounds cool. Maybe I’ll be there.

Summer: Maybe you’ll be invited.

Noah: No, seriously, though. Congratulations, you two. I’m happy for you.

Kyle: Hey, thanks.

Summer: Will you be bringing anyone? Like, say, allie perhaps?

Noah: Yeah. Yeah, about that, I actually want to talk to you two about that if you have time.

Mariah: Uh, yeah, of course. We can do that now.

Noah: Yeah.

Mariah: Okay. Sorry to run off like this, guys, but see you later.

Noah: Bye.

Tessa: Well, good luck with the planning and everything.

Kyle: Huh.

Summer: That was weird.

Kyle: 100%.

Summer: I mean, any relationship advice I could give is just as valuable as mariah’S. I mean, are we not as blissfully happy as there are?

Kyle: We left bliss in the rearview. We are on our way to “no one’s ever been this happy” level of happy.

Summer: Yeah. So why them and not us?

Kyle: Maybe he knows we need to focus on the details of our vow renewal. Come on what about this one?

Allie: Traci, I promise I am not doing anything wrong.

Traci: Oh, that’s a relief.

Allie: And — and I did not call in sick. I’m very careful about getting my hours in at jabot.

Traci: I’m sure that you’re going above and beyond, but let’s see. This mystery of yours has got my curiosity piqued. We’ve got a scientist who isn’t at the lab assigned to keep her auntie in the dark. I don’t know. I think I’m going to need more. How much longer am I going to have to wait? I need spoilers.

Allie: And I wish I can tell you, but unfortunately, this just isn’t my secret to tell.

Traci: Okay, whose secret is it?

Allie: Noah will be here soon, and I am sure we’ll both find out more.

Traci: Noah? Now, that is interesting.

Allie: Wait, wait. What’s so interesting about noah? The way you’re saying that is making me a little nervous.

Traci: Oh, no, no. I’m just so delighted things are going so well for you, honey, both at the office and outside of work. I knew you would find your way.

Allie: Well, I couldn’t have done it if I hadn’t gotten some sage advice.

Traci: From your favorite auntie, I suppose.

Allie: Oh, yes. She told me that I, uh — I needed to give myself permission to be happy. And I have. So thank you again, traci, for more than just the advice. It feels really great to have family again.

Diane: I mean, how do I even begin to tell my son what an idiot I was? Having a fight with phyllis in the office when I knew better? I just — I just hope he can forgive me.

Jack: Before you make that call, you should know I have no intention of telling kyle about this run-in with phyllis.

Diane: Why would you protect me?

Jack: I’m not protecting you. I’m protecting myself. Look, this is between kyle and summer and phyllis and you. I can’t be the one to instigate issues at marchetti.

Diane: Well, I respect that, and I — I also feel terrible that you had to witness my meltdown.

Jack: Well, you were certainly pretty careless about anyone and everyone who works with you hearing you.

Diane: Yeah, so you’re not the only one. Another reason that I should come clean.

Jack: Okay, I don’t think anyone was nearby.

Diane: [ Sighs ] It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter. I mean, even if you carried the secret of my fight with phyllis to the grave, I would know, and that lie of omission would impact my interactions with my son. That’s why I have to be honest with kyle. It’s the only way our relationship can work. So I am… I’m going to tell him how horribly I behaved, and then, um, he can decide how to deal with it.

Kyle: None of these options are speaking to me.

Summer: Maybe we’re not listening hard enough.

Kyle: Oh, really?

Summer: Yeah, sometimes you have to lean in. Shh.

Kyle: What’s the muse saying?

Summer: We need more choices. Mom, hi. Is everything alright?

Phyllis: Something has happened.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Kyle: It’s my mom. Girls trip.

Allie: I wonder what’s keeping noah.

[ Knock on door ]

Traci: Oh, I think we’re about to find out.

[ Chuckles ]

Mariah: Hi, allie.

Allie: Hi, mariah. Hey, tessa.

Tessa: Hey.

Noah: Hey, babe. Alright, I am sorry that we’re late. I can explain everything. I ran into the two people who could’ve —

Traci: [ Clears throat ] Hi.

Noah: Traci, hi. Uh, what does she know?

Allie: Uh, I hinted something was up, but I wasn’t sure how much to tell.

Traci: Okay, so whatever you’re planning, I’ll leave you to it.

Noah: No, no, no. Stay. I’m actually really glad you’re here, and I hope that your evening is free.

Traci: I have nothing on the calendar.

Noah: Good.

Tessa: Because we planned a surprise.

Mariah: For summer and kyle.

Noah: And we can really use your help.

Traci: [ Chuckles ]

Diane: [ Scoffs ]

Jack: Phyllis, I didn’t know you would be here, as well. I —

Diane: Seriously? I assume you wasted no time in sharing with them what happened earlier.

Phyllis: Oh, well, I felt they had the right to know.

Diane: Yeah, I’m glad you told them, because honesty is so important. That’s why I told kyle and summer to meet me here so that I could own up to what happened.

Phyllis: Well, I mean, you’re just saying that because you were caught.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Kyle: Is that true, mom?

Jack: I was with her before the phone call. She is very remorseful.

Diane: Thank you, jack, but what I did was indefensible. My behavior was completely out of line, and I — I am truly sorry. After sharing my commitment to family harmony and assuring you both that my priorities were in the right place, I lost my temper. It was unprofessional, it was uncalled for, and I am truly sorry.

Phyllis: Wow. Is this where I applaud? I mean, because this performance is truly remarkable.

Diane: I’m not going to make some last-ditch plea to try and save my job. You know, a job that I have grown to love because working with you two has been a dream. But you made it painfully clear that there would be zero tolerance for this kind of thing, so I am going to save both of you the discomfort and officially resign.

Traci: Okay, I love a good mystery just like the next person, but I’m going to need a little bit more information before I sign on to this plan of yours.

Allie: Well, I promise noah’s idea is exciting and fun.

Noah: Even if it is coming together at the last minute.

Mariah: Tonight was the only night that worked.

Traci: Okay, so I think I’m getting this. This is about kyle and summer, but you can’t possibly be surprising them with their vow-renewal ceremony, because I think I just successfully talked kyle out of keeping it a surprise from summer.

Noah: It’s a surprise pre-vow-renewal party.

[ Laughter ]

Allie: At noah’s new club.

Tessa: Tonight.

Traci: Oh, my gosh. I love it. And I know kyle and summer are going to love it, too. What a great idea to christen your club. So what can I do to help?

Noah: How do you feel about being a decoy? We could really use someone to lure the guests of honor into the club.

Traci: I can do that.

Noah: I could also use your advice on something.

Traci: What’s that?

Noah: We’re having a little bit of a guest-list quandary. Obviously, my dad and phyllis have to be there and you and jack.

Tessa: But should we include diane?

Mariah: Or are we just asking for trouble putting those two in a room together with a throwable cake?

Phyllis: I, for one, would like to congratulate diane for doing the right thing, stepping down after that very, very embarrassing outburst. I’d like to congratulate you for doing the very noble, sensible thing.

Kyle: Are you sure this is what you want to do, mom? You’re willing to step down?

Diane: I made a promise. I agreed to your terms, and I violated them. How could you ever trust me again if I didn’t keep my word?

Phyllis: Yeah.

Phyllis: Why are you nodding to him? What’s going on?

Summer: Mom. Those terms we agreed on?

Kyle: We made it clear that both of you would be terminated from marchetti if there were any more infractions, and we meant it.

Summer: Diane resigned because of an argument with you.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] What? What, you — you both don’t want me to resign, as well.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Traci: Phyllis and diane. Well, they would definitely cause a rift in the time-space continuum considering how much chaos they generate. But wouldn’t they have to be on their best behavior because this is about their kids? Wouldn’t they?

Allie: Yeah, I agree with traci. Why would kyle and summer’s mothers cause trouble at a celebration of their love for each other?

Mariah: Because this is phyllis and diane, and history has proven that that’s just what happens when they’re in each other’s orbit. So why risk it?

Tessa: Because if only one of them is invited, they’ll probably take it very personally.

Mariah: So maybe we shouldn’t invite either of them.

Allie: Wait, no moms at all?

Tessa: Well, of course they’d be at the ceremony.

Noah: No, seems weird and wrong. I know phyllis and diane bring out the worst in each other, but they love their kids.

Tessa: But maybe the best gift that we can give summer and kyle is a night of love and support without all the drama.

Allie: I know I’m new here, but what if there’s another option, one that doesn’t exclude phyllis or diane?

Phyllis: What? I’m not at fault. She lost her mind. I didn’t provoke her.

Summer: We’re aware of what happened, mom.

Phyllis: She’s resigning because she knows she did the wrong thing. I shouldn’t have to resign, too.

Summer: I guess I need to remind you of the lunch that we just had where we notified you and diane that it wouldn’t matter who said or did what to whom, that you would both be out.

Phyllis: Okay, wait a second. So when I came to you in good faith about what happened, I was just sealing my fate?

Diane: Nobody likes a tattletale.

Kyle: What was that?

Diane: Oh, I was just saying that you made the terms of our employment crystal clear.

Kyle: Even more reason we appreciate you being honest. You knew the cost, but you did the right thing anyway.

Phyllis: Okay, well, that’s it?

Diane: You know, I guess phyllis just didn’t grasp the concept of what you had said, but I respect that when you and summer say something as senior executives at marchetti, that you mean it.

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness. Okay, so, listen, I have the utmost respect for both of you because you’re fair and you’re both very, very smart. And I would think you wouldn’t let some ridiculous, arbitrary rule stop you from doing the right thing.

Kyle: Summer and I are sorry to see you go. Both of you were assets to the company, but it seems as if this was inevitable.

Summer: We’ll miss seeing you around the office.

Phyllis: Okay. Thank you for the opportunity. It was a great time. Thank you.

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Diane: Well, I — I hope we can all get together for dinner at some point.

Jack: [ Groans ] I know that wasn’t easy for you. I have to ask. Were you just teaching your mothers a lesson, or is marchetti saying goodbye to them forever?

Kyle: I don’t think learning to play nice is even a possibility for those two at this point.

Summer: You know what the worst part about this is? They were both doing really great work, and my mom is a perfect fit at marchetti home, and…

Jack: Can I perhaps offer a suggestion?

Summer: Anything. Please.

Jack: Let them stew in this for a while, and then offer them one final one last chance.

Mariah: I want to be optimistic. I do, okay? But I have to be realistic. And diane and phyllis in a room together, it’s just going to be total war.

Noah: Alright, well, I think we should hear allie out.

Traci: I agree. What’s your plan, honey? One mom and then the next.

Tessa: Oh, like staggering their arrival?

Allie: Yes, precisely. We have one mom spend time with the happy couple, they give a toast, they have fun, and then all we have to make sure we do is get her to be gone before the next one arrives.

Noah: Genius. I love it.

Traci: This plan might actually work.

Mariah: Yeah, it definitely has potential. You know, we just have to make sure that there is no overlap ’cause then everything will fall apart.

Tessa: If anyone can pull it off, we can.

Noah: Alright, we need to set the next phase of this plan in motion.

Allie: Operation let’s get everyone there on time. Okay, suggestions?

Traci: Um, I think you should ask diane to be there first. I think she’ll be easier to get out of the room. Easier than phyllis.

Mariah: Well, perfect. I’ll escort kyle and diane to the venue.

Noah: And I’ll take care of summer and my dad.

Traci: I can get jack there.

Tessa: And allie and I will make sure that the club is ready to rock.

Traci: [ Chuckles ] Alright, everybody have their assignments?

Noah: Alright, let’s give kyle and summer a night they’ll never forget.

Summer: You’re seriously advocating giving our moms one more last chance?

Kyle: We’ll take that under advisement.

Summer: How many more last chances do they deserve anyway?

Jack: I will leave that decision in your very capable hands.

[ Cellphone pings ] That’s traci. She wants to see me. Um, I’ll see you both later.

Kyle: Yeah, go. We’ve got this under control. What do you think?

Summer: I think your father’s a pushover. Why should we give our moms another chance to break our hearts?

Kyle: Maybe we scared them straight, and they’re filled with remorse.

Summer: Yeah, they’re sorry. They’re sorry that they’re suffering any consequences. This is the only way they’re going to learn, kyle. We have to be firm.

Kyle: I hear what you’re saying, but is it worth the collateral damage to marchetti just to prove a point?

Summer: On the other hand, if we let them off the hook now, they may never take anything we have to say seriously again.

Kyle: Okay, let’s see what they’ve been up to since they left. If they’re carefully crafting apology letters, we can talk. If they’re planning on waging war, they’re out of chances.

Summer: Okay. I’m on board. Just hope for the best.

Summer: [ Sighs ] I’m sorry about how that went down.

Phyllis: You are my daughter. You’re supposed to be on my side.

Summer: You’re not being fair. I am always on your side.

Phyllis: No, you’re not. You fired me because of something diane did. She lost her mind, summer. She lost her mind. Doesn’t seem to matter. I mean, she can’t get over her hatred for me. She’s constantly playing mind games, but I’m paying the price.

Summer: We laid out the zero-tolerance rules less than 24 hours ago.

Phyllis: Yep. It doesn’t matter. Her hatred for me goes back decades. No rule is going to change that.

Summer: I know. Mom, I’ve heard all of your stories about diane. And you know what? I believe them. I understand why you feel the way you do about diane, but you gave me your word that you would keep the peace.

Phyllis: I did keep the peace. Diane didn’T. I mean, honestly, this — this rule is ridiculous, summer. It’s ridiculous. One mom is bad, and then the other one should get fired, too. I mean, come on.

Summer: It’s the behavior that’s unacceptable.

Phyllis: It’s diane’s behavior that’s unacceptable.

Summer: Mom, be honest with yourself. If you wanted to keep the peace, you would have quashed the conflict. You could’ve ignored her, you could’ve walked away, but you didn’T.

Phyllis: Gandhi wouldn’t be able to walk away from diane.

Summer: But must you accept every invitation for a fight? Mom, as much as I love you, and I do love you, and as much as I sympathize with what you’re going through, my husband and I are trying to run a major fashion company. We’re dealing with time differences, creative differences, and now, every single day, it seems like, we’re dealing with issues with our moms that are distracting us. And I’m not even going to talk about that mysterious file that allegedly showed up on diane’s computer.

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness. And there it is. You just mentioned it.

Summer: Diabolical plot or not, it’s the fact that I had to take time out of my day to deal with it. That is the problem. Mom, I need you to see my perspective on this, to focus on the bigger picture here, please.

[ Cellphone pings ]

[ Sighs ]

Phyllis: Is that a fashion emergency? Do you need my help?

Summer: No, it’s — it’s noah. He wants me to meet him at the grand phoenix.

Phyllis: What’s going on?

Summer: I don’t know. Maybe something to do with the club? I should go.

Phyllis: Okay, well, I’ll go with you. We can finish our discussion.

Summer: You know what, mom? I think we should sleep on this, talk of the morning.

Phyllis: Okay.

Summer: Love you.

Diane: [ Sighs ] Are you here to get me to hand over my company credit card?

Kyle: No. I came to tell you I’m proud of you.

Diane: Proud? That’s not a word that comes to mind when speaking about what I did.

Kyle: Well, we can all agree you were in the wrong, but I am still proud that you made the right decision afterwards.

Diane: Resigning.

Kyle: Yeah.

Diane: Yeah, what choice did I have? You know, part of my therapy has been learning to own my actions. I just… I just hope this doesn’t change the way you see me or affect my relationship with harrison.

Kyle: Hey, it was business, nothing more. And it’ll stay that way unless things escalate.

Diane: I do not intend for that to happen. I hope you know that. And I know I made a similar promise earlier today…

Kyle: Mm-hmm.

Diane: But after losing the job that I’ve grown to love, I, um — I am more resolved than ever to do better, to be better.

Kyle: I really hope you mean that.

Diane: I do. So has phyllis officially resigned?

Kyle: [ Scoffs ]

[ Cellphone pings ]

Diane: Is everything alright?

Kyle: I’m not sure. What do you think?

Phyllis: [ Thinking ] Oh, diane, you are so sweet and innocent and humble.

[ Sighs ] Could you actually [Sighs] Be getting the better of me? Could I be failing? No. I will not let her win. I will not. Think. Oh, phyllis, think. They all have blinders on. If I could you just get to summer, and if I could just get her to open her eyes and look at things honestly from my perspective… yeah. That’s it. Summer just needs a little nudge to see that diana is the one who was wrong. That’s it.

Summer: Okay, what’s going on?

Diane: I have no idea.

Summer: What did your message say?

Kyle: Mariah said to meet her here and bring my mom.

Summer: Hmm. Noah told me to meet him here, but he didn’t say anything about the two of you.

Together: Surprise!

[ Cheers and applause ]

Noah: Yeah!

Mariah: Ow!

Noah: Surprise! A fragrance this alluring

Summer: I think we walked in on the wrong party.

Noah: No, this is exactly where you’re supposed to be.

Kyle: But why? Would someone please explain what’s going on?

Noah: You’re in the right place ’cause this party is for you. And you.

Kyle: I don’t get it. Surprise what?

Jack: Traci, what would you call this?

Traci: The surprise non-bachelor/non-bachelorette party. Eh, that’s a little clunky.

[ Laughter ]

Allie: Well, whatever it is, it is my first big abbott shindig.

Noah: Oh, in honor of you having yet another wedding.

Summer: Aww.

Kyle: [ Chuckles ] I love it.

Summer: Oh, my god. You guys, this is so sweet. I’m fine. I’m fine. It’s just, you don’t — you don’t know how much this means to me. To us.

Kyle: Mm. Thank you so much, everyone. As you all know, historically, I am the go-to guy for wedding and all things wedding-related.

Mariah: I’m sorry. Have you planned a speech for your surprise party?

[ Laughter ]

Kyle: What I’m trying to say is you guys really know how to celebrate.

[ Laughter ]

Noah: You heard the guy. Let’s party. Welcome to the glam club.

Traci: Wow.

Kyle: [ Chuckles ]

Summer: Noah, this place is going to be packed day and night. I love it.

Kyle: You’ve done an amazing job.

Allie: I’m so impressed.

Traci: And noah planned this entire evening.

Noah: Yeah, well, I know you have pretty high standards, so I hope I lived up to the expectation.

Kyle: You sure have.

Summer: You know what? I was right to suspect something earlier, even though you all were very convincing when you were pretending not to know anything about our vow renewal.

Mariah: Well, I really hope you can forgive us.

Kyle: It’s the best surprise we could’ve gotten.

Traci: Even better than the surprise re-wedding you had planned?

Diane: Ah, I’m so glad everything’s out in the open.

Summer: Noah, did you say something about champagne?

Noah: I didn’t, but, uh — okay.

Jack: [ Chuckles ]

Summer: Noah, I see kyle’s parents here, but where are mine?

Noah: Oh, dad’s on his way. He should be here any second.

Summer: And what about my mom?

Noah: We thought it might be a good idea to avoid any possible tension, so we staggered the arrival of your mom and diane. I know it’s weird.

Summer: Oh, actually, after the day the four of us have had, that is the most brilliant solution ever. You are about to win brother of the year award.

Noah: Yeah, we got to make sure that diane’s out of here before phyllis shows up.

Summer: And you have a plan to get her out of here on time?

Noah: I thought that I did, but it looks like we just hit a little snag.

Summer: Oh. No, no, no.

Phyllis: What’s going on?

Recap written by Eva

Nate meets Victoria at the park and he agrees to sell her his stock in Chancellor Winters when the company goes public so when she buys as much stock as she can his stock will give her majority stake in the company. Lily agrees to let Nate run the company when it becomes part of Newman Enterprises provided he can be her man inside Chancellor Winters and give her the information she needs to obtain Chancellor Winters stock.

Nate returns to Chancellor Winters and apologizes to them and tells them he will respect their authority if they let him return to the company. Devon, Lily, and Billy are glad to have Nate back at the company but they have no idea he plans to betray them and take the company away from them.

Devon and Billy still don’t think the company should go public because it will stop being a family company if they have to answer to a board of directors full of strangers.

Nikki meets with Deacon Sharpe who tells her that the few times he saw Diane in Los Angeles, she was driving a Bentley with a guy in the backseat whom he assumed was a rich guy. Deacon also tells Nikki he has something she needs to see at the restaurant where he works. Nikki is reluctant to go to the restaurant, but Talia persuades Nikki to go meet Deacon at the restaurant.

Diane tries to apologize to Victor for everything he put Nikki and his family through when she faked her own death. Victor tells Diane he doesn’t buy her act because he knows she hasn’t changed. Diane returns to work and gets angry because Victor won’t give her a second chance. Diane tells Phyllis to stay out of her way or she will be sorry. Phyllis tells Diane she knew it wouldn’t take long for the real Diane to come out and it just happened right now.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Nikki: [ Exhales sharply ]

[ Knock on door ]

[ Exhales heavily ]

Deacon: Nikki?

Nikki: Hello, deacon.

Deacon: [ Laughs ] I can’t believe this. I-I haven’t seen you in forever. I-I didn’t think I’d ever see you again.

Nikki: Yeah, well, I didn’t think I would ever have to see you again, either, but I needed to speak to you, so I tracked down your phone number and i sent you a message.

Deacon: Well, you are about the last person that I thought would be on the other side of that text — summoning me to a mysterious hotel room, nonetheless.

Nikki: I wasn’t sure you would show up if you knew it was from me.

Deacon: Well, you’re wrong. Of course I would. Come on, nik. I’m happy to see you. You know, I got to admit, I’ve — I’ve thought a lot about you over the years, you know, all the things that we went through together.

Nikki: Is that right?

Deacon: Absolutely. I wondered how you were doing. Oh, and, nik, one more thing. You look good.

Diane: [ Breathes deeply ] Hello, victor. You’re looking well.

Victor: There something you need?

Diane: Well, I just haven’t seen much of you lately, not since you came by to say hello when I returned. But, um, I thought maybe we could catch up.

Victor: I recall I had two unfortunate occasions when I saw you. One was when you engaged in a slapping fest with my wife and the other when you crashed the chancellor-winters launching party.

Diane: Well, I’ve been on my best behavior ever since.

Victor: Really?

Diane: Mm.&

Victor: Good. Well, then I think that’s all the information you and I need to exchange, right?

Phyllis: Hey. This is interesting, seeing you two together.

Diane: Phyllis.

Phyllis: Hello.

Diane: Hello.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] I feel the need to sit down and watch. That’s all.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: [ Clears throat ]

[ Whispering ] What are you talking about? Do I have to ask?

Lily: Thank you for joining me.

Devon: Yeah. It sounded urgent.

Billy: Is this about nate’s resignation?

Lily: Uh, no, no. Devon and I talked about that already, and I am optimistic that nate will change his mind. So we’ll discuss that later. Right now, I want to talk about taking chancellor-winters public. Now that jill and I have done the research and looked at all the numbers, we are very, very eager to pursue this ipo. And I’m really hoping to have this be a unanimous decision and to have your support by the end of today.

Victoria: It made more sense to meet here than at my office.

Nate: Agreed.

Victoria: You know, I’ve been considering the information that you brought me about jill and lily’s desire to take chancellor-winters public. Do you still think that they’ll be successful?

Nate: No guarantees. But I believe it’ll happen.

Victoria: Based on?

Nate: Well, jill was fired up about the idea, and with lily backing her, I’d be shocked if devon and billy didn’t ultimately go along with it.

Victoria: I’m sure the two of them could be very persuasive. Provided that they can make this happen, I’m interested in buying as many shares as possible to help me obtain the majority stake in the company. I mean, it’ll be an extraordinary addition for newman, don’t you think?

Nate: Couldn’t agree more.

[ Laughs ]

Victoria: Although I know that jill and lily are very savvy, and I’m sure they’ve already orchestrated the deal so that the family retains the bulk of the stock.

Nate: That is correct. 51% of the stock will remain in the hands of the chancellor-winters senior executive team.

Victoria: Well, then it would be impossible for newman to have the level of involvement that I’m hoping for.

Nate: Not necessarily. I’d be willing to sell you my shares. They, along with what you can purchase on the stock exchange, will make newman majority shareholder.

Victoria: That would be a huge risk on your part.

Nate: It’s one I’m willing to take, if and only if you’re willing to give me what I want in return for my help. (Grump) there is no perfect, only practice.

Victor: I apologize, but i don’t recall asking anyone to join me.

Phyllis: Mm. Well, I’m not going to join you.

Victor: Ah.

Phyllis: I have to-go order. I’m gonna get it and leave. I was here earlier for a lunch meeting, but we didn’t really have lunch, did we?

Diane: Mm. We met up with summer and kyle.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Victor: How riveting.

Diane: Mm. Uh… oh, look, phyllis, here comes your to-go bag. I certainly don’t want your lunch to get cold.

Phyllis: Oh, don’t worry. It’s gazpacho. I’m all good.

Diane: Well, I have a few things I’d like to say to victor in private.

Phyllis: I’m sure you do. Um…I wish you luck. Good luck.

Diane: Why do I need luck?

Phyllis: Because he sees right through you, just like i do. Good luck.

Victor: Hey, phyllis, good seeing you.

Phyllis: You too.

Diane: [ Scoffs ]

Nikki: Save your flattery, deacon. This isn’t a reunion for two old friends. Or have you conveniently forgotten that you almost ruined my life?

Deacon: No, I haven’t forgotten. But I did try and make it up to you.

Nikki: Oh, yeah. As if you could, after everything you did to me. You took advantage of me when i was vulnerable. You manipulated me into marrying you. And then you pretended you were on my side when I thought I had killed diane jenkins. You didn’t give a damn about me.

Deacon: Nikki, I swear that’s not true. Yes, I did set out to use you in the beginning, but then i started to have feelings for you. And then I fell in love with you. Now, look, there wasn’t a lot that meant anything to me back then, but you did.

Nikki: Thanks for the ride.

Deacon: Oh, come on, nikki. You’re hanging on by a thread, alright? Look — great. There’s booze in the house. I-I’m not leaving.

Nikki: Well, feel free to watch.

Deacon: Please don’t do this. I — look, hey, we can go to another meeting, alright? I — there’s another one in 20 minutes.

Nikki: Salute.

Deacon: [ Sighs ] So, uh, everything at the meeting was just a bunch of B.S., Right? I mean, obviously, you’re — you’re off the wagon.

Nikki: What I said was, um, “one day at a time.” “One hour at a time,” is what i said, and at this hour, I need a drink.

Deacon: Is this about diane? Is this about the night that she died? I saw you in the park. I know.

Nikki: You know what? This is probably very awkward& for you, so you should probably go.

Deacon: Nikki, please. I’m not gonna say anything. I’m not gonna tell anybody what I saw. Please, just…know that.

Nikki: I asked you to leave.

Deacon: We — we can talk. I just want you to know that i understand. W-we don’t have to talk. Just please put the glass down.

Nikki: Will you go away?

Deacon: I-I can’t do that.

Nikki: Fine.

[ Glass thuds ] I can.

Deacon: You don’t have to believe me, but there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t wish that I handled things differently.

Nikki: [ Scoffs ] Don’t stand there and tell me about your regrets. And don’t tell me that you tried to save me from taking the fall for diane’s murder when you helped her fake her own death. Yeah, that’s right. I know the whole story now, how you helped her escape from genoa city, leaving me and a lot of other people to suffer in her wake. Did you really think that the truth would not come out?

Deacon: No. No. I wasn’t that naive. I would like to know how you know.

Nikki: Did you not see the article about diane returning to genoa city? Talia morgan wrote it. It’s generated quite a lot of buzz.

Deacon: I don’t know anything about any article, and I didn’t know that diane went back there.

Nikki: Okay. Well, she recently revealed herself to jack, and —

Deacon: Wait. Jack abbott?

Nikki: Yes. Jack abbott.

Deacon: Wow.

Nikki: And she didn’t hesitate to let him know the part you played in her demise.

Deacon: [ Chuckles ] Diane, diane, diane. Threw me under the bus, huh?

Nikki: Instantly.

Deacon: Hmm.

Nikki: She’s not loyal to anybody but herself.

Deacon: So, that’s what this is all about, right? You, uh — you wanted to confront me about my deceit. So, what now? You getting ready for a little revenge?

Nikki: Yes. But not on you… so long as you do everything I ask. Hi, my name’s steve.

Billy: I appreciate your passion, lily, and my mother’s, of course, as far as the ipo goes, but I think we have a lot more to consider before we get a full consensus.

Devon: Yeah, I completely agree with that. And I don’t want to be rushed into some quick decision because of an arbitrary deadline.

Lily: Devon, no one is doing that. I really think that once you see the numbers that you’re gonna cha–

Devon: Even after hearing the numbers, though, I know I’m still gonna want to hold off, okay? I made that clear. I think — I know that the merger just happened not that long ago. So, if we go public, that’s gonna be two major moves within a matter of months. I think that it’s too soon for a number of reasons. And on top of all that, I’m not a fan of giving up autonomy as a family-owned business and losing control of everything that matters and ending up having to answer to shareholders instead of doing what we think is best for our company.

Lily: Look, you know what? I’m gonna e-mail you some things, okay? Financial analyses, projections that are pursuant to an ipo. And I really think that you’re gonna be impressed by what you see.

Victoria: While I am very grateful for what you’ve done already, I’m also interested in you continuing to give me information that might be helpful, as I’m planning to make my move.

Nate: You’re on.

Victoria: Alright, then. I have a question for you. Before you offered to be my eyes and ears, you said you were looking to leave your job, alluding to the fact that maybe there’s been some difficulty working with your family. So, are you still part of the inner circle?

Nate: I’m determined to iron things out with my cousins. And I’m confident I will have access I’ve always had.

Victoria: Excellent. Then I view you as the perfect person to help me achieve and oversee this transition, both while you’re at chancellor-winters and when you join me at newman.

Nate: So, you’re agreeing to let me run the company once it’s under the newman umbrella?

Victoria: Consider it done.

Diane: I’m sorry phyllis interrupted us. That woman has a habit of inserting herself into situations where her presence is not welcome.

Victor: There something you wanted to say to me?

Diane: Yes. I feel this conversation is long overdue.

Victor: I honestly don’t remember there being anything that you and I have to discuss.

Diane: Well, that’s — that’s true. We do have an ugly history, and I’ve done a lot to atone for, probably more than I could hope to accomplish in this lifetime.

Victor: Mm.

Diane: But I want you to know that I don’t carry any ill will towards you or nikki.

Victor: The feeling isn’t mutual.

Diane: I understand, victor. But I want you to know that I am doing everything I can to prove that I’m not the person you knew before. And — and I will keep doing so for as long as it takes.

Victor: I’ll pass this on to nikki — alright? — When she returns from her trip.

Nikki: Diane says she’s waited this long to reach out because she wanted to be the best possible version of herself for her son — kyle.

Deacon: And I’m sensing that you don’t believe that.

Nikki: Oh, please. Little by little, she has wormed her way back into our world. And she even wrangled a job for herself at the business that her son and his wife run. It’s infuriating. I’m not gonna tolerate it anymore.

Deacon: What do you expect me to do about it?

Nikki: Diane tells a story about how hard she worked to pull herself together, that she lived a very clean, modest life when she lived here in los angeles. Of course, I don’t believe that for a second. I think she is hiding something that could ruin the new image that she has created for herself. And that is where you come in, deacon. You owe me, and it is time that you pay up. So, if you know what’s good for you, you will tell me everything I can use to expose that bitch, get her out of our lives for good. Woman tc: My a1c stayed here, it needed to be here.

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness. Lucky me. I keep on running to newmans and ex-newmans everywhere I go today.

Victoria: Whatever that means.

Phyllis: That means I just ran into your ex-stepmommy

[Chuckles] Diane and your dad at society.

Victoria: Uh, what woman is not my step anything.

Phyllis: Oh, well, I mean, whatever. Your dad wasn’t buying what she was selling. That’s good.

Victoria: You know, frankly, I’m less interested in what my dad is up to with diana and I’m more interested in what my mother is doing in L.A. About diane.

Phyllis: What? No. Your mom is in L.A. Meeting with the forresters about summer’s wedding dress.

Victoria: Oh, so then this trip isn’t news to you?

Phyllis: Hardly.

Victoria: Then you are also in the know that she’s there to get the goods on diane.

Phyllis: You know about that?

Victoria: I don’t know why you didn’t just admit it. Could have saved us both some time.

Phyllis: I know. I’m keeping nikki’s private life private. I’m being discreet.

Victoria: Since when does my mom confide in you?

Phyllis: Well, we found common ground when it comes to diane.

Victoria: I don’t understand. And I don’t appreciate you encouraging my mother to fly halfway across the country just to face off with deacon sharpe. You understood what kind of position that would put her in and how that would cause stress for her, both physically and emotionally. What the hell is wrong with you, phyllis?

Deacon: Nikki, as attractive as you are when you’re making threats, I can’t help you. I wish I could, but I can’T.

Nikki: I don’t believe you.

Deacon: I’m not jerking you around. Look, you’re right. I-I do owe you for the way i treated you.

Nikki: Yeah, I know you do.

Deacon: I just don’t have that much to offer. I mean, after diane died, we went our separate ways. You know, I saw her a couple times over the years when she was living her life as taylor jenson.

Nikki: Okay. Okay. So, think back to those meetings. Any detail, no matter how small. It could be very important.

Deacon: [ Sighs ] The only thing that comes to mind is I thought she had a lot of money.

Nikki: Wha– why would you think that?

Deacon: ‘Cause every time i saw her, she was buzzing around in a bentley.

Nikki: Really?

Deacon: Mm.

Nikki: Because she said she was just getting by working as a real estate broker, selling small homes, just a tiny commission.

Deacon: She led me to believe the same thing.

Nikki: Well, what about that car?

Deacon: I-I don’t know. I just figured she was dating some rich guy. You know, every time I’d see her, there was this guy in the backseat sitting next to her. I don’t know. You know, I’d ask her about it, and she’d shut me down.

Nikki: Hmm. I wonder why she would be so secretive about that with you. I mean, wouldn’t you tell your co-conspirator the truth?

Diane: Is nikki on a business trip for newman?

Victor: [ Chuckles ] Yes. Important business.

Diane: Ah.

Victor: You worried she may stumble across something while she is on the west coast?

Diane: Victor, I have already told anyone who would listen that I have nothing to hide. I know that you and nikki already investigated my time in los angeles, but you couldn’t come up with anything to use against me, could you?

[ Scoffs ] You know, you and nikki both have checkered pasts, but you’ve managed to put all that behind you. And I just — I just wish you would extend the same courtesy to others, mainly me, as I build my life here.

Victor: I bet you do.

Diane: Victor, I pose no threat to you or your loved ones. The only reason I’m in genoa city is to be with my family.

Victor: That’s your choice. But since my family lives in the same town, you’re gonna have to deal with the repercussions.

Lily: Now do you see the benefits of an ipo?

Billy: [ Sighs ] I mean, assuming these numbers are correct, they’re — they’re pretty damn impressive.

Lily: Right. Okay. So, I mean, does that move the needle at all for you? Are you moving closer to a “yes” vote?

Devon: [ Sighs ] Lily, one of the biggest reasons, for me at least, for doing this merger is because we wanted to create a unified, family-owned business and a legacy, a legacy that we can leave behind for our kids and our grandkids. And I think that if we go public, we’re gonna lose that completely ’cause we’re gonna have to end up answering to a board of people we don’t know and it’s all gonna become about profits and share prices and pleasing our hedge funds. We’re gonna have to completely change our mind-set, and I don’t know if it’s gonna be for the better.

Lily: So, what I’m hearing is that you’re not convinced.

Devon: I just feel like there should be more owning a company than turning a profit, as crazy as that might sound, because i feel like there should be a personal satisfaction you get from coming to work. And as a public company, that’s gonna go out the window.

Lily: Look, devon, I get it. I get it. And I-I believe part of that. I do.

Devon: Yeah.

Lily: But I really think that our vision would still define the future of chancellor-winters going forward. I mean, to me, this is an opportunity to grow and to make an impact. You know, we’re allowing people who believe in us to invest in us and give us the money that we need to make this a bigger and stronger entity. This is the next step in our evolution. I mean, this is our moment to reach for the stars. We can’t pass that by.

[ Knock on door ]

Lily: Nate. Hey. Come on in.

Nate: Hey. Um… I can see you’re busy, so, uh, I’ll get right to the point.

Devon: Please do.

Nate: I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting, and I realized i was wrong and you were right about me overstepping. I need to grow into my position and pay my dues like everyone else. No matter how strongly I feel about my ideas, I need to respect the opinions of others. Especially those in the hierarchy above me. I regret I resigned in anger, and I’m here to ask for another chance.

You might take something

for your heart…

“The young and the restless”

will continue. Can you imagine a world where moms and kids agreed

Nikki: I suppose it’s possible diane could have been seeing a man who was wealthy. Or maybe she fell into money herself, whether it be illegally or legal. She was always very resourceful.

Deacon: Ain’t that the truth.

Nikki: Mm. Well, whatever the real story is, maybe the reason she kept her distance from you is she didn’t want your grubby paws on her money.

Deacon: [ Chuckles ] You know, I’d like to tell you I’m offended by that characterization, but given my past, I guess I can’T. Your theories are solid.

Nikki: Yeah, well, theories do me no good. I need proof. So, keep thinking about these meetings with diane. What else do you remember?

Deacon: Nikki, I wish I could tell you what you want to hear. I really do. But I-I can’T. Look, I admire the way that you’re trying to protect your family. I would love nothing more than to help you as a way of trying to make amends.

Nikki: There is no making amends for what you put me through, no forgiveness. The only thing I want from you is information. And if you don’t have anything to give me, I will send you on your way and forget I ever knew your name. Okay. We’re done here.

Deacon: Nikki, wait.

Phyllis: I think, in a way, it might be a good thing that she’s meeting with the man who was aiding and abetting diane. It could be — I don’t know —

Victoria: Cathartic?

Phyllis: Yeah.

Victoria: Yeah, I — i understand that. But we’re talking about deacon sharpe.

Phyllis: Yeah. I mean, I think we all regret having anything to do with him. Ugh. He’s a pig.

Victoria: Yeah, which is why I preferred that my mom stay away.

Phyllis: Yeah, I’d prefer that, too. But, I mean, listen, if she could deal with victor newman on a daily basis, she can deal with deacon.

Victoria: Oh, that’s so funny.

Phyllis: Okay. This is the thing. She may have been — I don’t know — a bit of a train wreck all those years —

Victoria: “Might have been”? Really?

Phyllis: Yeah, she may have been, but she’s not like that anymore. She’s not. She’s different. And she’s not gonna let deacon play her, especially when it comes to the goal of getting diane jenkins out of town once once and for all.

Victor: Is there a problem? Are you surprised by what I’ve said?

Diane: Yes, victor, there is a problem.

Victor: Really?

Diane: Yeah. When I chose to come back to this town, I was under no illusions about the long, hard road I’d have to travel. And there have been countless smears and insults and threats. And I have — I have rolled with it all. I have handled it all with grace because I understand what emotions my presence provokes.

Victor: Do you now?

Diane: Yes, victor, I do. But I didn’t just come back from the dead to suffer endless abuse. I have worked so hard to start over, and I have too much to lose to have anyone tear me down or scare me off. I will never let that happen.

Victor: Should I bring in the violins now?

Diane: [ Chuckling ] No.

Victor: You know that I enjoy a good fight. And I can see your fighting spirits are up. But you know where this will probably end, right? Girls trip.

Nate: I, um, guess I stunned you all speechless.

Lily: Look, thank you for coming here and saying that. I know that wasn’t easy for you.

Nate: I have a new perspective now, know exactly what I want, which meant checking my temper and ego at the door.

Lily: Well, I’m — I’m just curious. I mean, what — what changed your mind?

Devon: Yeah, I was about to ask the exact same thing ’cause this is a pretty big shift for you.

Nate: You’re right. After we got into it yesterday, I had a chance to cool down, take a step back, and think about what you’ve all been trying to tell me. I’ve been doing a lot of talking and not a lot of listening. And now I finally heard you.

Billy: On a delay, it sounds like. Of course it happens. Happened to me many times.

Nate: That is the perfect way to put it — a delayed reaction that could only occur once I got out of my own head. It doesn’t mean I don’t feel strongly about my ideas. I would love to see them come to fruition when the time is right. But I realize I overstepped. I felt underappreciated and attacked, so I lashed out.

Devon: Yeah, you sure did.

Nate: Because I was only thinking about myself. I wasn’t considering the bigger picture — the relationships with my family, the need to present a united front for the sake of chancellor-winters’ success. I realized it would make the company look less stable for the ipo if word got out that I’d jumped ship. Assuming you’re planning on moving forward with it.

Lily: Uh…uh, well, we — we haven’t decided yet. That’s what we were just talking about.

Devon: Nate, if we were to hae you come back after everything you just said, how are things going to be different between you and me? How’s that dynamic gonna change with us?

Nate: I’m your coo. I report to you. The final word lies with you and lily, and I won’t circumvent your wishes. That being said, I would like for you to be open to my suggestions, even if they’re not ideas you’re comfortable with at first. And if jill or lily or billy sees merit in what I have to offer, I’d like for you to give weight to their opinions.

Devon: So, you’re expecting, like, a majority-rules type of situation?

Nate: No, no, no, not at all. You’re the boss. But simply put, if we’re going to make a sincere attempt at operating as a team, I hope you will meet me halfway.

Victoria: I want it in digest form twice a day. Any mention of the company, no matter how cursory. Oh, and I may need you to do some research for me in the near future. Alright. Excellent. I knew I could count on you. Bye-bye.

Victor: That sounds to me as if you’re about to acquire another company to add to the newman portfolio.

Victoria: Time will tell.

Victor: Care to share?

Victoria: Well, I, um — actually, I do have something in play that you might find intriguing, but I’m not quite ready to present it to you yet.

Victor: Hmm. Well, well, well. Interested to hear all about it. By the way, I want to tell you that I’m very proud of what you’ve accomplished here so far. You and your mother make a hell of a team, you know.

Victoria: I know that mom is in los angeles meeting with deacon about diane.

Victor: And you have concerns about that, right?

Victoria: I’m still concerned about it. I-I’m very concerned. Have you heard from her?

Victor: Unh-unh.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] God knows what games he’s playing with her now.

Victor: Hmm.

[ Door slams ]

Nikki: Of course you were holding out on me. How typical of you and your tenuous relationship with the truth.

Deacon: Take it easy. It just occurred to me in the moment, alright? I don’t even know if it’s significant.

Nikki: Alright, will you just tell me?

Deacon: It’s not something i tell you. It’s something I — I have to show you, alright? I can bring it to work — the restaurant.

Nikki: Oh, my god. Are you actually trying to lure me to your place of employment?

Deacon: Why? You want to be lured?

Nikki: Ugh!

Deacon: Come on, nik. No. Just — look, you come, I’m gonna give this thing to you, I’m gonna hand it over, and once I do, you can pretend you never knew me. Okay everyone,

Lily: I mean, you know where I stand. I would love to have nate back. But it’s gonna take all of us to make this work.

Devon: Yeah. Well, listen, nate. I can — I can try and be more open to your ideas and to hearing you out, and I can even give you more leeway in certain areas. But the back and forth that we’ve been having between us — it’s been terrible. And it really has to stop. I mean it when I say that. I want to put it completely behind us. So, if you think we can do that, then, sure, I’m fine with giving you a second chance.

Billy: Well, as the king of second chances, I’m just gonna say it. Welcome back.

Lily: Yay!

Nate: Thank you. Thank you.

Lily: I’m so excited.

[ Laughs ] I see a bright future for all of us.

Nate: Mm. I couldn’t agree more.

Lily: [ Chuckles ]

Victoria: Look, I know that mom said she could handle anything that deacon threw her way, but what if he tries to mess with her head again? Or maybe he flies into some kind of a rage because he’s being confronted about helping diane fake her death. This could all go south so quickly.

Victor: Do you honestly think I would let her go there without providing security? I mean, my security team has eyes on her the entire time. She is in no danger, okay?

Victoria: Look, that’s no guarantee.

Victor: My baby, if I thought your mother wasn’t up to dealing with this fellow, I would have found another way to handle him, alright? Your mother’s strong. She asked me to have faith in her, and I do.

Victoria: So do I. I just hope she can get whatever dirt this bastard has on diane and comes back home and she never has to give deacon sharpe another thought ever again.

Talia: What happened? Are you alright?

Nikki: Yeah, I’m fine. Seeing deacon brought up a lot of bad memories.

Talia: From all that you told me about him, how could it not?

Nikki: Mm. He’s still the same snake that he was, still has some of the old charm, which he tried on me. It was disgusting.

Talia: I’m sorry you had to deal with that.

Nikki: Well, I knew what i was getting into when I decided to come here. But I did get one thing out of him.

Talia: What’s that?

Nikki: He said that during the few times he saw her in L.A. That diane seemed to be living the high life. And that contradicts the story she has told.

Talia: Interesting.

Nikki: Yeah. We need to dig deeper. We need to find out what that lifestyle entailed.

Talia: That would be my instinct, too. Any ideas?

Nikki: Well — oh, and then deacon says that there’s something that I might be interested in seeing and he wants me to meet him. Like I would ever go anywhere he suggested. I mean, I don’t even know if this thing actually exists.

Talia: Obviously, the decision is up to you, but off chance deacon has something worthwhile in his possession…

Nikki: You think I should go.

Talia: All I’m saying is, i wonder if meeting with him one last time might be worth the effort.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: You made it out unscathed! Good for you! So, how’d it go? The mea culpa — did it work? Did you get shot down? Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Diane: You know, we’re — we’re here to work, not to do whatever it is that you’re doing.

Phyllis: Well, I’m caring for a co-worker.

Diane: Oh, please stop.

Phyllis: Stop what? Caring?

Diane: Stop being so damn disingenuous.

Phyllis: Now you’re hurting my feelings.

Diane: [ Sighs ] Phyllis, I have a meeting to go to. If you’ll excuse me.

Phyllis: Are you gonna apologize to me?

Diane: Oh, get over yourself. And get out of my way.

Phyllis: Oh, there it is.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: There it is. There it is. This is the real diane. This is the real diane. I knew you would start to crumble. This is the first crack in the armor, isn’t it?

Diane: Alright, where do you and victor get off? Where do you get off throwing stones at people? You have both lied and cheated and deceived others countless times! You’ve both been charged with a litany of crimes! And you know what? By the way, I’m not the only person who’s faked my death. Victor has done it half a dozen times!

Phyllis: But who’s counting, right?

Diane: And yet you continue to think that you get some free pass where you just torment and punish me!

Phyllis: I’m not doing that.

Diane: I am warning you, phyllis. You keep pushing me, and you will regret it.

Phyllis: There you are. There you are.

Diane: [ Scoffs ]

Phyllis: That is the diane I know and hate. There…you…are. And this is the beginning of the end for you.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Diane: Well, this is a nice surprise, you and summer arranging for us to all meet up.

Kyle: We felt like we should all sit down together.

Diane: Oh, absolutely. I think it’s a great idea.

Summer: Mom, are you on board?

Phyllis: Oh. I mean — well, I thought it was gonna be a private lunch, just the two of us, but, gosh, the four of us? That’s a kick. Sure.

[ Door closes ]

Nikki: Thank you for coming to meet me, talia.

Talia: It’s good to see you again, nikki, but I am surprised you’re in L.A.

Nikki: I have some important business to take care of.

Talia: For newman enterprises?

Nikki: No. Um… actually, I am here on behalf of the people of genoa city who deserve to be rid of diane jenkins. I’m also going to be talking with deacon sharpe, who helped her fake her own death. I’m hoping to get enough dirt out of him to drive her from town for good.

Talia: I did some research on him for my article. His past is almost as colorful as hers.

Nikki: Yeah, it is. But he’s sure to know what diane was up to when she was living in L.A. Under that assumed identity.

Talia: Well, please tell me what you learn because I can use that information to expand the scope of my story about diane.

Nikki: Oh, I’m so happy to hear you say that. I mean, maybe if what I find is compelling enough, your editor would let you finish writing the series. Frankly, I was rather suspicious of how that was killed so abruptly after the first installment.

Talia: Well, so was I, and that is why I’m committed to turning this into a book if the magazine refuses to publish any more about diane.

Nikki: Oh, my god, that would be amazing. I mean, as long as the world gets to hear the whole sordid story.

Talia: And I get the feeling that deacon sharpe could take this in a whole new direction.

Nikki: Yeah, he could. That’s why I have to catch him completely off guard. I’m gonna confront him about everything he did with diane and how it almost ruined my life. He has no idea what’s coming.

Talia: I sense there’s more to it for you.

Nikki: What do you mean?

Talia: You’re talking tough, but you seem a little nervous. So, what exactly do you think is gonna happen today?

Nate: Imani. How’s it going? Oh. You look upset.

Imani: [ Sighs ] Is it that obvious?

Nate: What’s got you so stressed? Is it your mom?

Imani: No. Now it’s my dad. He’s been such a rock for me and mom, even amanda, but here we are, always leaning on his strength.

Nate: Okay. Did something happen?

Imani: I guess all the pressure and stress from mom was just too much. He collapsed and had to be hospitalized.

Nate: Oh. I-I’m sorry to hear that.

Imani: So here I am, terrified about mom, and now this? I’m so worried about him. I’ve got this knot in my stomach that will not go away.

Nate: I know it’s a lot, but hopefully your father’s condition isn’t too serious. Would you like for me to call his doctor, see what I can find out?

Imani: Nate, I can’t keep dragging you into my personal business. You have been so helpful, but there’s only so much —

Nate: Okay, and you’ve done more for me than you realize. At least let me return the favor.

Nick: Okay, that takes care of all the questions legal had about our new acquisition contracts.

Victoria: Okay. Well, it all looks good. But now I would like to get to the biggest item on the agenda.

[ Door closes ]

Nick: Alright. What do you got?

Victoria: I have come into possession of some huge information, something that could be quite lucrative for us, but for the time being, it can’t leave this room.

Nick: Well, you have my full attention now.

Victoria: I have learned from a reliable source that devon and lily are taking chancellor-winters public.

Nick: Seriously? That’s a huge step, given how recently they merged.

Victoria: I want newman to use this inside information to grab as much initial stock offering as possible. The goal is to secure a majority of control and several seats on the board. Are you really that wowed, or are you calculating the potential of how huge newman’s reach might be with a move like this?

Nick: Honestly, my first thought isn’t about newman at all. I want you to be honest with me, and I want to know where you got this information. Did it come from a disgruntled chancellor-winters employee? Did nate bring this to you?

Additional sponsorship

provided by… my cholesterol is borderline.

Nick: I know nate’s been having a hard time working at chancellor-winters. He’s struggling with the complications of working with his family. I’m sure he and devon have butted heads.

Victoria: The situation has become untenable for him.

Nick: But why make a move like this? It seems so unlike him.

Victoria: I don’t know. I was quite surprised when he came to me with the idea. But he has his reasons.

Nick: But it makes you wonder what happened to make him go so far as to leak insider information about his own company. It seems extremely vindictive.

Victoria: Nate’s an executive now. He’s looking at this as a businessman. He sees that it’s a smart move all around.

Nick: Obviously, he doesn’t think lily and devon would agree or he wouldn’t have gone behind their backs. So, if he’s looking at it as a businessman, my question is why? What’s in it for him?

Nikki: I-I don’t have any specific expectations for what will happen when I talk to deacon. I mean, I have a general sense of caution where he’s concerned. I mean, he has no conscience. He’s manipulative. He’s very self-serving.

Talia: Well, then it’s no wonder you’re on edge about this.

Nikki: Oh, he was perfectly fine with me being accused of a murder that he knew full well had not happened. So, yeah, I have my issues with him. I just know that I have to be focused and not let him distract me from my goal — exposing diane for the fraud that she is.

Talia: Mm. You know, nikki, my job requires me to be adept at reading people, at listening to what they’re saying and what they’re not saying. And what I’m hearing is this deacon guy has the potential to knock you off your game — or at least try.

Nikki: Well, that’s why i have to be on my guard.

Talia: You know, in my research, I learned you were married to him once.

Nikki: I don’t see how that’s relevant.

Talia: We’re talking completely off the record. I promise.

Nikki: Yeah. We better be.

Talia: Correct me if I’m wrong, but you’re about to come face-to-face with a man you haven’t seen in years, a man who, in your own words, is manipulative and without a conscience.

Nikki: Believe me, I can handle deacon sharpe.

Talia: Maybe, but it could be a good idea for you to talk this out first. It could help you to go in there feeling more solid and in control.

Nikki: Well, maybe you’re right. I mean, it would be good for me to get some things off my chest and be at the top of my game and stay in control. Off the record.

Kyle: I’m afraid you got it wrong. Summer and I didn’t invite you to join us for fun.

Summer: In fact, it’s the exact opposite. This is serious, and it’s something that we wanted to discuss with both of you.

Diane: Oh. I-I see.

Phyllis: Okay, well, this doesn’t sound good.

Kyle: Summer and I want you to know we have two priorities — peace within the family and productivity within the business.

Phyllis: Uh, okay. Well, we’re on the same page. Those are my priorities, too.

Diane: And mine, as well. No question.

Phyllis: There’s nothing that I want more than to see, you know, marchetti run smoothly.

Diane: And successfully. I hope you know how much i appreciate the opportunity you’ve given me.

Phyllis: Yeah, and it is my mission to make sure that all your dreams are realized with marchetti.

Diane: The most important thing to me right now is family harmony. Being close to you is the only reason I’m here. I can’t tell you how lucky i feel. And it means everything to me to be accepted back into your lives.

Phyllis: Well, we’re on the same page. Look at that. We are. We want to work in harmony, and we want to see marchetti succeed.

Kyle: Okay, we appreciate you are both in agreement. But summer and I will be doing the rest of the talking.

Summer: We’re glad to hear you saying all of the right things, but — I’m sorry — it’s not enough. You need to back up those flowery words with actions.

Kyle: So, here’s the deal. No more threats, no more accusations, no more trying to undermine each other in any way.

Summer: No more coming to us complaining about the other one.

Phyllis: Guys, that’s gonna be easy for me. I mean, honestly, I’ve been all but ignoring diane, I mean, despite her attempts to create conflict.

Diane: I merely let kyle and summer know about the mysterio file on my computer because i thought it could impact the company.

Phyllis: Oh, okay. Alright. So, for the good of the company, you decided I was responsible?

Diane: Phyllis, we all know that you’re the expert hacker. I was just trying to be helpful in pinpointing the potential source of the issue.

Phyllis: Okay. Alright. Cool. Well, I, in turn, um — I needed to defend myself, you know? And I — I denied these baseless allegations.

Kyle: Okay, look —

Phyllis: And I just wanted to tell you the truth, that’s all.

Kyle: Look, we don’t want to be put in a position of trying to figure out which one of you was being honest.

Summer: No, we are done refereeing your feud, okay? So, if there’s one more incident, one more confrontation…

Kyle: No matter who provoked it…

Summer: You’re both out.

This is john.

Nate: So, you’ve confirmed that his collapse was due to extreme exhaustion? Are there any other symptoms? How’s his heart rate and blood pressure? Have you run other tests? And your prognosis of his overall health at this time is? I see. Thank you for your time.

Imani: Well, based on what i heard, it isn’t awful.

Nate: Your father’s gonna be just fine. He’s suffering from extreme exhaustion. The doctor recommends he get some rest, which I know is easy to say. He’s gonna prescribe him something and encourage him to take better care of himself.

Imani: Oh. Thank god it’s not life-threatening. I couldn’t handle that right now. Just — nate, thank you again for explaining things.

[ Sighs ] And you always just give me so much peace of mind. Thank you.

Nate: Not a problem. But I think you should go see him.

Imani: Why? I mean, you just said it wasn’t serious. Is there something you’re not telling me?

Nate: Relax. I’m not giving you this advice because I think your father’s symptoms are worse than they appear. I’m just saying this because i know you won’t feel better until you go see him yourself. Okay?

Nate: Thank you.

Diane: Wait. We’re both out, no matter who’s at fault?

Summer: That’s right.

Diane: Well, that’s not fair. I mean, why should I be held accountable for her bad behavior?

Phyllis: Um… okay, just so I get this clear. So, if she does something, I get fired, too? That just doesn’t seem right.

Kyle: It won’t matter who said what or who did what to whom. You will both — both — be immediately removed from the company.

Summer: No questions asked, no excuses tolerated.

Diane: But —

Phyllis: Okay —

Summer: This is non-negotiable, period.

Kyle: We warned you from the beginning to stay out of each other’s way. You were told that any conflict between the two of you would be a deal breaker.

Summer: And now you know that we mean it. Besides, the two of you have limited need to interact at marchetti anyway.

Phyllis: Okay, well, that’s not entirely true. Diane is writing the press release for my division, so I’m going to have to be around her.

Kyle: True. But if you can’t handle the times when you do need to interact, you shouldn’t have the job in the first place. It’s just that simple. Understood?

Phyllis: Summer, are you really…

Diane: Kyle, don’t you think this is a little harsh?

Kyle: Mom, we have a company to run.

Summer: And we’re both committed to its success.

Kyle: Hey, we are in the middle of a huge transition. Moving a company from milan to genoa city is a mammoth of an undertaking, and this is a big step for jabot and my father, so this affects him, as well.

Summer: We just don’t need these kinds of distractions.

Kyle: Like I said, you’re both doing great work in your respective jobs. Neither of us want to lose you. We want to see you succeed and be a part of this adventure. But we are done making allowances.

Summer: We’re done with the attacks and the accusations. This is your last warning. Are we clear?

Phyllis: Yeah. Sure. Fine.

Diane: Yeah, whatever you say. You can count on me.

Phyllis: Is there something you’d like to say?

Diane: Oh, no, phyllis. You — you go ahead.

Phyllis: No, I insist.

Diane: [ Sighs ] I think it has been very difficult for the two of you to be caught in the middle between us. And that’s not fair. So I want you to know that i promise that you won’t have to deal with that anymore.

Phyllis: You know, it really breaks my heart that you’re having this conversation with us. I mean, I don’t want to stress you out. I just want to help you make this company grow into the success that you want it to be. So, don’t worry. I’m not gonna do anything. You don’t have to worry about me.

Diane: See? You don’t have to worry about this ever again.

Phyllis: No. It’s all good. I’m good.

Diane: Yeah.

Nikki: Deacon was around during a very low point in my life. I’m in recovery now, but back then I was drinking excessively. And deacon took advantage of that and worked his way into my life and became my enabler.

Deacon: If I didn’t know any better, I’d say you were stalking me.

Nikki: Oh, god. If I had known you were working, I wouldn’t have come here.

Deacon: Well, I’d probably be wounded if I didn’t know that was a lie. On the house.

Nikki: I don’t want it.

Deacon: Honey, I’ve earned enough of these and lost ’em…

[ Chip clinks ] …To know that’s exactly what you want.

Nikki: I cannot believe that I am here again. The — the lying and the sneaking around. I swore I would never put myself through this again.

Deacon: Okay. Alright. All right, listen. You know what we’re gonna do? We’re gonna make a pact, alright? Tonight, that’s it. We pour the booze out. No more slip-ups. Come on. Come on. Let’s pour it out. Good. Now, we gotta promise that we’ll be there for each other ’cause nobody else understands but us.

Nikki: But finally it was just too much for victor. He had had enough, and he moved on with diane. Then, the day that she supposedly “died,” I confronted her, drunk. Things got out of hand and I picked up a rock and I hit her with it in the head.

Talia: So that’s why authorities thought you were the one who killed her.

Nikki: And I was so drunk, i didn’t know if I had or not. Clearly, deacon took advantage of that situation.

Deacon: You know, I was born and raised in this town. God, I love me some las vegas. Nikki, come on. Please? I mean, you really don’t want to do this.

Nikki: You know, you’re right. If I put all these together, it’s still not enough to get me through a wedding to you.

[ Sighs ] Yes, hello. Could you please send up a bottle of vodka immediately? Thank you.

Nikki: As I said, it was a very dark period of my life. I hardly knew who I was, but i did know that I wasn’t the person I wanted to be. It took me quite some time to climb out of that hole. And once I did, I didn’t want to look back. But today, in order to face deacon, that’s exactly what I’m gonna have to do. Family is just very important.

Kyle: Thanks for understanding our position on this.

Summer: We’re glad that you both see why we had to take this step.

Phyllis: You don’t have to warn us again.

Dian: Oh, no, no. You don’t have to give this another thought.

Kyle: Great. Then we’re good. And now we can all head back to work with our new attitude and perspective.

Phyllis: That’s right! Let’s do it! Let’s do it!

Diane: That’s right. Everything’s going to work out just fine. You’ll see.

Phyllis: Yeah. Um, I have to make a phone call, so I’ll see you at the office.

Diane: Alright. I will see you shortly. Bye.

Kyle: Well, let’s hope that’s the end of it.

Summer: Yeah. Let’s hope.

Imani: You’re right. I’m gonna go to virginia today to see dad, and you don’t have to worry about me because I am not gonna fall apart.

[ Laughs ]

Nate: Okay. I’m sure devon would want you to use his jet. He’s probably gotten the news from amanda by now.

Imani: Yeah. I guess I’ll reach out to him.

[ Sighs ] I don’t know what it is about you. You — you’re just so calming and supportive, reassuring. I don’t know how I’d get through any of this without you.

Nate: I’m just glad I can be here to help.

Imani: Yeah, well, you were talking earlier about me being there for you, but you are the one that is always showing up for me. Nate, I think I’m the lucky one.

Nate: I guess that goes both ways…because I cannot begin to explain to you how helpful it’s been to have someone to confide in who really understands what I’ve been going through. Dealing with devon’s constant second-guessing and having all of my ideas shot down — it’s been frustrating, to say the least.

Imani: Well, of course it’s frustrating — because your ideas are amazing.

Nate: And that’s why i appreciate that you really listened to me. I mean really listened.

Imani: Well, about that… I hope that you are willing to listen to what I have to say to you right now.

Nick: Clearly nate brought you this insider information because there is some upside for him, something other than provoking his own family.

Victoria: Well, of course there is. The leadership of chancellor-winters.

Nick: Whoa. Are you saying you would make him ceo, leading the whole thing, above lily and devon?

Victoria: Yes. Why not? It’s what he told me he wanted in return.

Nick: [ Sighs ] It’s just such a mercenary move. I would never expect that of nate.

Victoria: Nate has learned a lot about how the game is played. He sees an opportunity, an opportunity that ultimately will be what’s best for everyone at chancellor-winters.

Nick: Oh, I’m sure that’s the speech he’s composing right now. He’s completely ignoring the fact that everything he is doing is absolutely unethical. And if he benefits from this financially in any way, it’s gonna invite some serious sec scrutiny.

Victoria: Oh, nicholas, would you just let me worry about that? I want to know what you think of the acquisition. Putting aside your feelings about nate’s role in it, don’t you think that it’s a smart move for newman enterprises?

Nick: It is impossible to take that element out of the equation. Nate felt so underappreciated, his response is to do an end run on lily and devon — and everything they did, they worked so hard to build by merging these two companies. Vick, they’re gonna take it personally because it’s personal.

When moderate to severe

ulcerative colitis persists…

Nate: Okay. I’m listening.

Imani: So, now I am talking to you as your biggest supporter. The reason I am constantly encouraging you to follow your instincts is because you’re really good, even if devon doesn’t give you the recognition you deserve.

Nate: I appreciate you saying that. I would like to believe you’re right.

Imani: No, I am not the only one. Lily and billy see the merit in your ideas, too. Now, maybe she didn’t side with you against devon, but that is definite confirmation you belong in the c-suite, that you were right to think big and bold.

Nate: [ Inhales sharply ] I’m only getting bolder.

Imani: Good, ’cause I don’t want devon undermining your confidence, always going around saying that maybe he gave you too much responsibility too soon, that you were ill-equipped to handle the transition from medicine to business. Because we both know that is not true.

Nate: Trust me on this. Devon has not undermined my confidence.

Imani: I understand why you got frustrated and thought you had to leave chancellor-winters. I get it. But I hope that you will reconsider. And I wish elena had never suggested it because you deserve to reap the benefits of your ideas. Devon has no reason to hold you back, and you need to show him that.

Nate: Once again, you’re tuned into exactly what’s going on with me.

Nick: Just think about it, vick. If you used nate’s insider information to take over chancellor-winters, lily and devon are gonna see it as an act of betrayal. And, frankly, there is no other way to look at it.

Victoria: They’ll be upset, at least initially, but they’re both aware of the risks involved in going public.

Nick: You know, there’s one other member of the chancellor-winters executive team that you haven’t mentioned yet. Does you wanting this company so badly have anything to do with billy?

Victoria: Why would this have anything to do with him?

Nick: Because I know you, and I know you’ve looked at this from every angle and thought about how it shakes out for everyone involved.

Victoria: Yes, I have made a few calculations.

Nick: Okay. Let’s just say we get you everything you want, get you those seats on the board. What does this mean for billy? Does he have to answer to you? Is that what this is about?

Talia: You are quite a remarkable woman. I admire your strength. It’s not easy to pull yourself out of a difficult time and reclaim your life.

Nikki: Well, I can’t take all the credit. I had a tremendous amount of love and support, and I realize a lot of people aren’t that fortunate. So, I had to be strong for myself — and, more importantly, for my family.

Talia: I hope talking about it all before going in to meet with deacon was of some value to you.

Nikki: It was. You know, uh, sometimes when you say things out loud, it lessens the power it has on you. Funny how that works.

Talia: From what I’ve learned about you, though, you are strong enough to deal with anything or anyone.

Nikki: No, you’ve been very good for me. God knows I’ve given you a lot of mixed messages.

Deacon: Listen. I’m just happy to be with you. Any time I get to spend with you is great, and I’ll take it any way I can get it.

Nikki: You are too nice.

Deacon: Oh, that is so funny ’cause it’s — everyone says that in genoa city. They say, “deacon sharpe is such a nice guy.”

Nikki: Will you just take the compliment, please? You’re not the evil bastard you want people to think you are. At least, not right now, not with me. And I’m very grateful for that.

[ Sighs ] And I’ve — I’ve got to stop doing this to both of us. I have to stop it. So, um, I’m gonna be leaving town for a little while, and I’m just gonna go see my sister. It — it couldn’t be a better time, actually. I need to get away, and, um, think and, uh, put some miles between me and… the coffee.

Deacon: [ Chuckles ]

Nikki: I just need to figure out what’s going on in my head…and in my heart.

Nikki: When you’re in recovery, especially early on, they warn you to avoid the people, places, and things that are associated with your addiction. That’s another good reason it was good for you and me to talk like this. I needed to remember exactly who and what deacon sharpe is. And I cannot be complacent because that’s when, if you’re not careful, you can really get into trouble. Hi, I’m karen.

Victoria: Billy’s potential role is not a factor.

Nick: So, you’re telling me you haven’t considered what the management structure of chancellor-winters will look like once you’ve installed nate at the top?

Victoria: I’m just saying that there’s nothing personal about this move. It’s — it’s all business, nicholas.

Nick: While I admire you channeling your inner dad, i don’t buy that answer for one minute.

Victoria: As far as I’m concerned, there is absolutely no downside to bringing chancellor-winters under the newman umbrella. Just think about how powerful and explosive that would be.

Explosive, yes, but not in a good way. Let’s put aside the undercutting of devon and lily, two people i greatly respect and care about. It’s a massive financial outlay, vick. Have you forgotten you recently went on a very impressive spending spree?

Victoria: Financing the stock buy is not an issue. Risk and reward, nicholas.

Nick: Have you run this by dad?

Victoria: No, not yet. But it is too big of a deal not to, so of course I will, and i also intend to get input from my co-ceo — mom. But ultimately, this is my call. And you’re right. You’re absolutely right. This is exactly the kind of move that dad would make.

Nick: And you think that’s a good thing?

Victoria: You know dad. He once had control of chancellor. He inherited it after katherine died. And although selling it made a lot of sense, I know it was hard for him to let go of her legacy. Now here we are. We have the perfect opportunity to get the company back. Can you give me one solid reason why we shouldn’t seize the moment?

Nick: Not one you want to hear, apparently.

[ Knock on door ]

Diane: I hope this isn’t a bad time?

Jack: Uh, no. It’s a perfectly fine time. Come on in.

Diane: I wanted to stop by and apologize.

Jack: Apologize? For what?

Diane: Well, I’m sorry I took my suspicions to kyle and summer about phyllis setting me up. I realized what a huge mistake it was, and, um, I’m also sorry if somehow you got in the middle of it.

Jack: Do you realize you were wrong, that what you accused phyllis of she was not guilty of?

Diane: I’m just saying I know now what a terrible position i put them in.

Jack: How so?

Diane: Well, because I forced them to mediate some issues between phyllis and myself, when really all they want are uncomplicated working relationships with their mothers.

Jack: Seems to me they’ve made that clear for a very long time now. What caused the sudden epiphany?

Diane: Kyle asked me to meet him at society, and summer did the same to phyllis. It was a setup. They wanted to address the situation with both of us together.

Jack: Wow. How did that go? Anyone throw any food?

Diane: [ Laughs ] No, it was actually quite civilized.

Jack: Well, that’s progress, I’d say.

Diane: Phyllis and I were on our best behavior. We had to be. They gave us a pretty harsh ultimatum. They said that if either of us does anything remotely antagonistic, we’d both be fired.

Jack: Tough love mixed with mutually assured destruction. Seems to me that’s plenty of incentive to get along now.

Diane: Well, we were both pretty shocked. I mean, it’s — it’s kind of unfair.

Jack: Then you and phyllis agreed on something.

Diane: That’s hardly a silver lining.

Jack: It could have been a whole lot worse. You and phyllis could have lost your jobs.

Diane: I suppose. It was kind of an odd role reversal, our kids sitting us down and reprimanding us, laying down the law like we were the obstinate children that needed disciplining.

Jack: Well, were they off base? (Rose h) smoking caused my lung cancer.

Nate: You’re right. I do want to show devon he’s wrong about me. Maybe I did act prematurely by walking away. I let my frustration with devon get the better of me. But there is still a lot I want to accomplish in my role at chancellor-winters.

Imani: I’m very happy to hear you say that. But now you have to promise me that you’ll be back at chancellor-winters when i return.

Nate: That is the plan.

Imani: You’re a pretty awesome guy, nate.

[ Both laugh ]

Nate: Good luck in virginia.

Imani: Thank you.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Nate: Victoria. Good to hear from you.

Victoria: Nate, I’ve been thinking about your proposal, and I’d like to meet.

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Summer: I am choosing to remain…hopeful about our mothers’ ability to follow through.

Kyle: Mm, I’m with you on that. Now that the situation’s been dealt with, we can put our energy where it belongs.

Summer: Mm. That’s right.

Kyle: Mm. Like focusing on making marchetti a huge success.

Summer: No! You’re kidding me, right? I was talking about our vow renewal. The next time the four of us get together, we’re gonna be talking about music and flowers and our color scheme.

[ Both laugh ]

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Hey, nikki. It’s me. I mean [Sighs] Please tell me you’re getting enough pay dirt in los angeles to drive this bitch out of town.

Diane: I don’t think kyle and summer needed to threaten our jobs to prove their point.

Jack: The way you and phyllis have been behaving, you honestly are surprised that summer and kyle felt they were forced to handle the situation the way they did?

Diane: Well, I wouldn’t say forced. That’s a little strong.

Jack: Come on, diane. You have to admit, even though you and phyllis claim that you have your priorities straight, it appears the two of you are enjoying this war. And I have to wonder if it’s more important to you than your commitment to work and to family.

Diane: That’s ridiculous. Why would you even say —

Jack: Listen to me. I know what I’m talking about. I have been there with victor. Our ongoing battles after a while looked like they were shaping who we were. Don’t let that happen with you and phyllis. Do not get lost in the hatred. Do not feed off the animosity and confrontation. Don’t fall into old habits.

Diane: You say this like you’re concerned for me. I’m — I’m touched.

Jack: I am concerned about kyle and summer.

Diane: Yeah, but I bet you’re not giving this same advice to phyllis.

Jack: Oh, believe me, I have tried repeatedly. And I get the sense that I’m not gonna get through to phyllis on this particular subject. I hope the same can’t be said of you.

Diane: Jack, I can assure you I am taking all of your advice to heart. And I promise that things will be different from now on.

Jack: I’m glad to hear that. For kyle’s sake — and yours.

Diane: [ Raps desk ]

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Sally: I was starting to think you’d forgotten all about me.

Adam: I, um… didn’t mean to interrupt. But now that I have, I can’t help but wonder what I’ve interrupted. Why is my brother in your suite, sally?

Nick: What makes you think that’s any of your business?

Kyle: Hey. Sit. Sit.

Traci: Oh.

Kyle: These are images that come to mind when I think of summer, you know, just different colors and textiles — and these pictures, you know, up to her elbow in flour while making a pizza crust or [Laughs] Chasing harrison through a field of flowers in the italian countryside and just sitting by the fire at night looking gorgeous.

Traci: Now, you say that you have taken these images and you sent them to you the event planner. Is that right?

Kyle: And she sent back images of what the ceremony might look like. But since you’re the reigning queen of romance…

Traci: Oh!

[ Both laugh ]

Kyle: I wanted to get your opinion.

Traci: Okay. Um, well, thank you, kyle. Um, I-I think — I think it’s just wonderful that all your friends and family are going to be with you for your special day.

Kyle: But what’s your take on the whole concept?

Traci: May I be completely honest? Um, as much as you love a good surprise, I think keeping summer in the dark about this is a huge mistake.

Kyle: What’s your concern about a surprise wedding? Will summer think it’s cheesy?

Traci: Mnh-mnh. No, no.

Kyle: Should I plan it because it’ll be more personal?

Traci: Honey, it’s nothing like that. It’s — it’s just that this is a celebration that summer is gonna want to plan for, she’s gonna want to anticipate, you know, talk to her friends and her mom. Is she going to have a maid of honor?

Kyle: I hadn’t thought about that.

Traci: Exactly. Now, as beautiful a surprise as this would be — and I have no doubt it would be beautiful — is summer gonna be able to celebrate with her friends the night before?

Kyle: All the stuff she didn’t get to do the first time. Right.

Traci: Yes, all those fun traditions. Now, I know the two of you have walked down the aisle already, but this time —

Kyle: We’re different people. We’ve matured, gotten used to co-parenting a child together, started working together.

Traci: Yes. You’re a team.

Kyle: Yeah. We are.

Traci: You do everything together, and this should be no different. Oh, trust me, kyle. When summer finds out about this, I’m —

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Summer: When summer finds out what?

[ Chuckles ] Because you both do know that summer will find out. It’s just a matter of time. So, who’s gonna spill the beans first?

Traci: [ Sighs ] I love you both, but I really think that I should go.

Kyle: No, aunt traci, you can’t just —

Traci: No, no, kyle. Good luck. Good luck.

Kyle: [ Sighs ]

Summer: Bye, traci.

[ Laughs ]

[ Door closes ]

Summer: Okay. Now it’s just the two of us.

Kyle: Mm. Mm-hmm. Divide and conquer, huh?

Summer: What do you need luck with? You have exactly three seconds to tell me what’s going on.

Phyllis: Do you have a minute, diane?

Diane: What can I help you with, phyllis?

Phyllis: Were your ears burning earlier? I was talking to mariah, and she was saying you were doing a great job…

Diane: Oh, that’s nice to hear.

Phyllis: …Considering your lack of experience.

Diane: Well, you’ll get to see my work soon enough. I have been assigned to write the press release for the launch of marchetti home.

Phyllis: Really? A novice?

Diane: You seem surprised.

Phyllis: No, I’M… well, yeah. I’m surprised that they’re giving it to someone with such a lack of experience.

Diane: Maybe it’s just not that important.

Phyllis: Oh, it’s very important, very important. You know what? It’s fine. It’s fine. It’ll be really good practice for you, yeah, you know, with the amount of revisions and rewrites that I’ll have.

Diane: Oh, I love a good rewrite. Yeah, that’s where the fun comes in, you know, perfecting and streamlining. It’s an important part of my job, especially when the people in charge don’t know what they want.

[ Clicks tongue ] You know, I — I would have thought you had learned by now, but maybe — maybe it’s true what they say about teaching an old dog new tricks.

Phyllis: Excuse me?

Diane: I would have thought your attacks against me would be more clever than, say — I don’t know — excessive rewrites or — oh! — Planting a false document on my computer. You know, maybe I gave you too much credit.

Phyllis: Oh, diane. You haven’t given me enough credit.

[ Clicks tongue ] As someone living with type 2 diabetes,

Phyllis: Wow, diane. If you really believe that i planted a fake document on your computer, you don’t know what I’m capable of. And by the way, I didn’T. But I’ll give you some advice. If I wanted to take you down, you’d never see it coming.

Diane: Oh, please. No one’s ever accused you of flying under the radar. But you’re lucky because kyle and summer were on your side. They rode to your rescue when i shared my concerns about the planted document. Fortunately, they talked me off the ledge, but not without letting me know that they are hyper-aware of what’s happening.

Phyllis: Have I misunderstood something? I mean, did you really go to our very busy kids and cry about something that I didn’t do?

Kyle: Come here for a second.

Summer: No. You’re being weird. You come over here.

Kyle: [ Sighs ]

[ Chuckles ] You know how much I love you. I would follow you anywhere in the world, even right across the room, because you are the center of my universe, you and harrison. How long have I known you?

Summer: Mm, close to forever.

Kyle: And in all that time, you’ve been a million things to me. My rock. My advisor. My best friend. Partner.

Summer: Tormentor.

[ Both laugh ]

Kyle: My love. We’ve been through challenges together, and everyone keeps talking about how young we are, but all I can think about is, “summer and I — we have lived a lifetime together.” And you’ve watched me go down paths that have led me away from you, only to find that I’ve always followed the path that brought me right back home.

Summer: It has been the wildest ride of my life, kyle.

Kyle: [ Chuckles ] But you didn’t sign up for this, raising a child that you didn’t give birth to.

Summer: Harrison is my son, biological or not.

Kyle: I know. And that’s what I love most about you, the way you open up your heart just to let people in. And I thank whatever higher power put me in your sights. I know we’ve had our obstacles.

Summer: You. It was definitely mostly you.

Kyle: But you never gave up.

Summer: Mnh-mnh.

Kyle: We’re the best part of each other’s stories, and every time I turn the page, you’re doing something else that blows my mind or makes me know we made the right choice when we chose each other. And I would choose you every day.

Summer: Even over ice cream?

Kyle: [ Laughs ] Yes, even over my beloved mocha fudge. Now, just please — just let me finish, okay?

Summer: [ Laughs ]

Kyle: [ Sighs ] You are what makes me want to find out what comes next. I know it hasn’t been easy and there will be more difficulties. There always will be. But I am so lucky I get to face them with you.

Summer: Well, stick around because this next chapter — it is out of this world.

Kyle: [ Chuckles ] Good. I like our story. And I love our family.

Summer: We are the best, right?

[ Both laugh ]

Kyle: And like I said, i would follow you anywhere in the world. So, will you do the same for me?

Summer: Of course. But where are we going?

Kyle: Back down the aisle. Summer newman abbott, will you make me the happiest man in genoa city? Will you marry me…again?

[ Both laugh ]

Adam: When I’m ready to talk to you, nick, I will tell you.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Adam: Sally?

Nick: Doesn’t look like she has anything to say to you.

Adam: Sally doesn’t need you to speak for her, nick.

Nick: We’re simply having a private conversation, adam, in a private place. That is all you need to know.

Sally: I mean, why are you even here, adam? I just got a text message from chloe saying that you have been looking for me. What is it that you need?

Nick: I just got a text from victoria saying the exact same thing.

Sally: Did I not make myself clear last night? I don’t want to see you, adam. And this is how you respond? You’re racing around town, hunting me down like a criminal?

Adam: Is that really how you’re — you’re choosing to see this, sally?

Sally: Well, don’t you find it odd that you show up in my hotel room uninvited yet again?

Adam: Almost as odd as the two of you being here during business hours. The last place I would expect, but yet here you are.

Sally: Okay, what — what is it exactly that you couldn’t say to me over a text or e-mail?

Adam: It can wait… until nick’s gone.

Zyrteeeec

Sally: Nick… I would like to speak to adam. Alone.

Nick: You sure?

Adam: Are you implying that I’m a threat to her? Nice.

Sally: Nick. Thank you, but I’m fine.

[ Door opens ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Exhales sharply ]

Adam: Are you sleeping with my brother?

Summer: Kyle, get up!

Kyle: Not until you answer my question.

Summer: [ Inhales sharply ] Have you lost your mind?

Kyle: I’ve never been more sure about anything. Marry me.

Summer: I’m already married to a very handsome man.

Kyle: We deserve a do-over.

Summer: Kyle, get up before mrs. Martinez walks in and thinks you’ve lost your mind.

Kyle: Good. I want her here. Mrs. Martinez! Look, hear me out. I want everybody’s eyes on us celebrating, and think of all the people who couldn’t be there on the most important day of our lives. Milan was unforgettable. I will always, always cherish the way we said “I do.” And starting our lives in that city…

Summer: It was magical.

Kyle: But it wasn’t home. And being at mariah’s wedding made me realize… I want to go big.

Summer: You love a good wedding.

Kyle: I do. I officiate. I hear I’m one hell of a groom.

Summer: Mm. [ Laughs ]

Kyle: And now that we’re back and we have our family and friends around, I want them to be there for us on our happy day and watch me say my vows to the woman who brings me so much joy. Um…full disclosure, I was totally gonna surprise you.

Summer: What — what kind of surprise?

Kyle: Oh, uh, the whole vow renewal ceremony thing. But then traci had this crazy idea that you might want to be involved with the plans…

Summer: Well, thank goodness for her!

[ Both laugh ]

Kyle: Look, I not only want to do this for you. I want to do this with you.

Summer: I wouldn’t want it any other way. Mmm. I’ll need a dress.

Kyle: Oh, uh, nikki is already in L.A. Meeting with the forresters.

Summer: The — the forresters? We’re a marchetti family. Marchetti, jabot, fenmore’s —

Kyle: I couldn’t get you a marchetti dress without you finding out.

Summer: Okay. You’re right. But just this once.

Kyle: Okay, I — it will be our last wedding. I swear. Assuming you want to do this.

Summer: Kyle… I would love to marry you all over again. Mmm. Mm. Okay.

[ Chuckles ] Playtime is over. We have got to get back to the office.

Kyle: Oh, we were just getting started.

Summer: I know. But we’ll pick this up later?

Kyle: I’ll hold you to that.

Summer: I’m about to become a bride all over again. My re-proposal glow is not going anywhere.

Kyle: [ Chuckles ]

Diane: I told kyle and summer all about your sabotage attempt, and they promised me they’d look into it. They can make a decision on your culpability.

Phyllis: Well, they’ll realize that I didn’t do anything.

Diane: However, I — I owe you a debt of gratitude, phyllis.

Phyllis: Do you? For what?

Diane: Mm. Because sharing my concerns with kyle allowed me to feel truly heard and supported by my son. I realized that our relationship is becoming what I hoped it would be. So, you should feel good about that. Your inability to defy your own worst instincts ended up becoming a good deed.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ]

Jack: Did I just hear you and diane? What was that about?

Phyllis: Nothing. She accused me of trying to set her up.

Jack: Okay, I don’t need any details. All I need to ask is — did you?

Phyllis: That’s insane.

Jack: Not an answer.

Phyllis: No. No. You satisfied?

Jack: I’m relieved because it would be a big mistake both on a familial and a work level for you to cause chaos around here. But I don’t have to tell you that.

Phyllis: No. I get it.

Jack: Glad to hear it. No matter who you are,

[ Elevator doors open ]

Summer: [ Chuckling ]

[ Elevator doors close ] Mom.

Phyllis: Hey, my incredible, brilliant creative director daughter.

Kyle: Is my father here?

Phyllis: Uh, yes. I believe he’s in his office.

Kyle: Thanks.

Phyllis: Is everything okay?

Kyle: I really hope so.

Summer: Mom… I know everything.

[ Door closes ]

Jack: Yeah, I think this new fragrance has the potential to be a bestseller. Okay. I got to run. Give ashley my best, okay? Thanks. Hey.

Kyle: Summer knows about the vow renewal.

Jack: Already? I thought it was supposed to be a secret. Who spilled the beans? Oh, this I got to hear.

Kyle: I was running concepts for the ceremony by traci. Turns out, surprise birthday party, fun times. Surprise wedding, start planning for a divorce.

Jack: Really?

Kyle: Not a thing a woman wants sprung on her apparently.

Jack: Well, I’m glad somebody told you.

Kyle: What, you — you knew this was a bad idea and you didn’t tell me?

Jack: Well, you seemed so excited. I didn’t want to second-guess you.

Kyle: I’m glad traci was brave enough to speak up.

Jack: Okay. Emergency averted. My question is, with all this good news, why do you still look like your world is falling apart?

Phyllis: Okay, so, what do you mean when you say you know everything?

Summer: I’m just going to let my smile do the talking.

[ Giggles ]

Phyllis: Okay. Is it charades? I mean, sounds like? Give me a word.

Summer: Mom, I know all about the vow renewal.

Phyllis: Oh, thank god. Okay. The vow renewal. Of course! The vow renewal. Of course. You know about that?

Summer: Yeah. So many things have had me on edge lately between you and diane, and, no, things are not ideal, but I’m just so glad that you could all come together for this. I mean, this is gonna be even more magical than our wedding in milan.

Phyllis: Oh, my gosh. I can’t believe this. So, you know about it? I’m so glad you know because keeping it a secret — it was killing me.

Summer: You know, I’m kind of amazed that you were able to keep it quiet.

Phyllis: Ah, well — did kyle tell you?

Summer: He did, after traci convinced him that springing a ceremony on me was the worst idea ever.

Phyllis: Like, the worst idea ever. The worst. Traci’s the voice of reason.

[ Both laugh ]

Summer: Mom, he even got down on one knee and proposed all over again.

Phyllis: That’s very sweet.

Summer: It was so sweet. And he made the most impressive speech.

Phyllis: Mm. That’s lovely. I’m very happy for you. So, now that the cat is out of the bag, we have a lot of planning to do!

Summer: Yes, we do!

[ Both laugh ]

Chloe: Oh. Hey. Um, I’m so glad I bumped into you. Have you seen sally?

Nick: Why are you asking?

Chloe: Oh, just looking out for my ceo.

Nick: Are you worried about something?

Chloe: Adam. He’s been searching for her. And, you know, I think he’s actually having a harder time letting her go. I don’t want him getting into her head anymore because I don’t want her going off her game.

Nick: I think sally’s got this.

Chloe: Yeah? Really? Even after everything yesterday, missing the summit? You’re okay with that?

Nick: I think she learned a valuable lesson. She now knows what she’s in danger of losing. She hit the reset button. I’m very impressed with how she’s handling things.

Chloe: Oh. Um, okay. Great.

Nick: I think she’s stronger and more put together than people give her credit for. Yeah, she’s been through the wringer, but those experiences have given her a work ethic and an overall drive. I think in the long run, sally’s gonna be fine no matter where she ends up.

Chloe: Wow. That’s quite the endorsement. She should hire you as her hype man.

Nick: [ Laughs ] I think she’s gonna be a very valuable part of newman.

Chloe: Yeah, I’ve worked with sally long enough to know what she’s capable of. What I didn’t realize is how well the two of you have gotten to know each other.

Sally: Am I sleeping with your brother? I mean, how can you even get your mouth to formulate those words? How dare you? You have no right.

Adam: Yes, I know! I know. I don’T.

Sally: Is that why you’ve been hunting me down, so that you could hurl these baseless accusations at me?

Adam: Come on, sally. Baseless? Really?

Sally: Okay, now you want to play the jilted lover when you’re the one who dumped me?

Adam: Look… are you having trouble with the truth? Because you are doing an expert job of avoiding the question right now, sally.

Sally: Even if I was sleeping with nick, why would it even matter, okay? Because we’re all adults. I’m free. You’re free. We’re all free to do whatever we choose with whomever pleases us. I mean — I mean, you can — can go back to chelsea.

Adam: Oh, come on.

Sally: Or even sharon, if you’d like.

Adam: Will you stp?

Sally: No, why should I even believe for one second that any of this actually matters?

Adam: Sally… it matters to me. Your brain is an amazing thing.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Kyle: There’s something else I need to talk to you about.

Jack: Why do I think I’m not gonna like this?

Kyle: It’s about my mother. She came to summer and me yesterday because she found an incriminating document on her computer and she thinks phyllis was responsible.

Jack: I see. Well, that explains my conversation with diane yesterday. Something was bothering her. And before you got here, i witnessed an intense conversation between diane and phyllis. Phyllis, by the way, claims she is totally innocent.

Kyle: Of course she did.

Jack: So, how you gonna handle this?

Kyle: I’m not entirely sure yet. I’m frustrated, not because of the possibility of it being true — although if it is, phyllis would have to go.

Jack: That makes sense.

Kyle: But the fact that my mother is even actively looking for evidence proves that they still think the other is out to get them.

Jack: Between making accusations against each other, investigating each other, it’s a wonder any work gets done at all.

Kyle: And rather than focusing on the future and trying to make things better, they’re stuck in this cycle. My mother thinks the worst of phyllis —

Jack: And phyllis thinks she’s at the top of diane’s hit list. Therefore, she has to prove that she’s being wronged.

Kyle: Yes, nothing is improving. If anything, it’s getting worse.

Jack: It’s counterproductive.

Kyle: Was that a mistake, putting the two of them to work together at the same company?

Adam: You know how I feel, sally.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Adam: You know it matters to me.

Sally: With the amount of back-and-forth that you do, i have no idea what is actually important to you. Yes, there was a time when i thought I did, but… but, I mean, everything that you’ve said and done has just seemed to be a part of this bigger plan where the only person that mattered was you.

Adam: And I get why you feel that way.

Sally: Oh, my god, when it comes to you, I don’t even know what is the truth and what is just another step in this scheme to prove to victoria and victor and the rest of the world what you don’t even believe yourself — that you’re worth it. I believed that you were. I laid it all out on the line for you to show you your worth. My career, my friendships, my reputation. They’ve all been jeopardized by my feelings for you.

Adam: I know. And I am sorry.

Sally: [ Scoffs ] And now I’m fighting this uphill battle to prove to everyone that I’m just more than one of your exes. But every second that I spend with you proves to everyone else that they’re right. I can’t keep doing this with you. I have to focus on what’s best for me.

Adam: Which — which is what, sally?

Sally: Your absence. I thought I made it clear to you when you left last night that i needed my space and it was best that we avoided each other. But instead, what do you do? You show back up to my hotel room again, disrespecting my wishes. This is why there is no future for us — because I can’t forgive you for your lack of trust or the ways that you manipulated me and played the game. You used me as a pawn.

Adam: I didn’t —

Sally: You did not treat me like a teammate. I can’t do this to myself anymore.

Adam: Because that is not true, sally.

Sally: No, no! Please stop! I’m done. I am moving on with my life. You should, too.

Nick: Who says I know sally well?

Chloe: Um, you. The way we were just talking about her, it sounds like you guys are besties.

Nick: We spent some time together on a professional level. I’m the coo of newman enterprises, which, of course, is the parent company to newman media. So we work closely together. You’ve been there. You’ve been in on some of the meetings.

Chloe: Yeah. One big happy family.

Nick: Well, that’s what i strive for — ’cause when we’re all supporting each other, that’s how we grow.

Chloe: Okay, well, that’s not your mission statement.

Nick: Don’t you think it should be, though?

Chloe: Yeah, um… yeah. Maybe you’re right. You know, fresh blood, under new management, anything is possible.

Nick: I’ve also convinced victoria to keep sally on as ceo. I would like to see her do well because that will reflect well on me. So we’ve had some discussions about that, too.

Chloe: And about her missing the marketing meeting yesterday?

Nick: Among other things. I know as well as anyone what the power of adam’s mind games can do. But from what little I know, she’s gonna do just fine.

Chloe: Yeah. That’s the plan.

Kyle: I’ve got enough to do in a day without refereeing this feud between my mother and phyllis.

Jack: You and summer shouldn’t be dealing with any of this. If diane and phyllis are creating tension, if they’re a distraction, both of them have to go.

Kyle: Both of them? No matter which one’s hands are dirty?

Jack: Choosing one of them is only going to exacerbate the battle and heighten the tension between you and your mother or summer and hers. It’s not fair to any of you.

Kyle: I don’t want or need any of this. I have far more important things in my life.

Jack: Yes, like my incredible grandson.

Kyle: And marchetti.

Jack: And your marriage, kyle. You are in the honeymoon phase. The two of you should be enjoying all kinds of fun things.

Kyle: Yeah, like planning our ceremony.

Jack: Yeah, like things like that.

Kyle: Maybe seeing us recite our vows will remind our moms of what’s important.

Jack: Well, I guess there’s always hope, yeah.

Kyle: You know the crazy thing about all this? When those two put their hatred and petty differences aside, they’ve actually done a hell of a job at marchetti. I would hate to lose either one of them, let alone both of them. But I fear they can’t help themselves from trying to destroy each other. Their loathing runs too deep.

Jack: Bring them together. Make your concerns clear. Tell them you are drawing a line in the sand.

Kyle: So, treat them like harrison?

Jack: Wait, you don’t treat my innocent little grandson that way, do you?

Kyle: Only when his grandfather’s been spoiling him too much and we need to get him back in line.

Jack: Seriously. Tell them there is a zero-tolerance policy now. No more shenanigans going forward. Life… doesn’t stop for diabetes.

Summer those were your father’s words of wisdom?

Kyle: Well, he thought we should lay down the law with our mothers.

Summer: Or else we put them in time-out?

Kyle: Or else they can’t play in our sandbox ever again. Thank you. They cross the line, they get the ax.

Summer: Doesn’t that seem a little extreme? We could lose a pair of valuable team members.

Kyle: I know, but they can’t help trying to undermine each other. They each need a deeper incentive to play nice, even if the other isn’T.

Summer: Yeah, it’s gotten so crazy that even as my mom and i were coming up with ideas for the most amazing ceremony ever, she couldn’t help but harp on the fact that she’s the mother of the bride.

Kyle: Mm, instead of the mother of the boring old groom.

Summer: You could never be boring. But, yeah, basically. She was saying that since she’s my mom, she has more say in the planning.

Kyle: Mm. Downplaying my mother’s right to contribute.

Summer: Without naming names, of course.

Kyle: She’s good.

Summer: The best.

Kyle: They just can’t help themselves. If we don’t do something — and fast — our ceremony is going to turn into a battle royale.

Summer: And I want it to be filled with peace and harmony.

Kyle: Then I say we follow my dad’s advice. If anyone crosses the line, there’s no taking sides or playing favorites. Agreed?

Summer: [ Sighs ] It definitely would alleviate some of our stress. Okay. Yeah. Let’s put our mothers on notice.

Kyle: [ Inhales sharply ]

Phyllis: I-I get it, but, nikki, listen — I don’t do well when I don’t have all the answers. I mean, I’m sure you have everything under control in los angeles, but I just need to know what you’re doing. It’s — it’s going okay here. I mean, I have it handled.

[ Cellphone pings ] Hang on. I’m getting a text. Hang on. Um, alright. Well, I have it under control. So, I guess we’ll chat later, right? Exactly. Talk to you later.

[ Both breathing heavily ]

Sally: W-well, that did not go according to plan.

Nick: No, not at all.

Sally: [ Exhales sharply ] I did not intend for this to happen again, I-I swear. I didn’t even think it was a possibility.

Nick: I mean, this, uh — this attraction, whatever it is we’re calling it… I never thought in a million years.

Sally: A billion years.

Nick: Trillion.

Sally: Quadrillion.

Nick: Well, you must have handled whatever it is you needed to talk to sally about pretty quickly.

Adam: Does that make you happy, nick? That sally’s more free for private meetings so soon? Hmm?

[ Pen clatters ]

Nick: I’m not concerned about her schedule.

Adam: Mm-hmm. Is this your way of getting back at me for leaving newman? Have you told dad?

Nick: Told him what?

Adam: I mean, I’m sure he might applaud you at first. He really does enjoy a good revenge plot. But he didn’t think sally was good enough for me. So, what’s he gonna think now that she’s sleeping with his golden boy? I mean, and then there’s sharon. Hey, she’s not gonna like this one, nick. What about summer, given the things that sally has done to her?

Nick: Alright, that’s enough. Here’s a good halloween trick.

Adam: Oh, I’m so sorry, nick. I mean, I wouldn’t want to get you angry. We both know what could happen, right?

Nick: What is the matter with you? You’re like a wrecking ball to every relationship you have. You destroy everything you touch, from family to friends to women you claim to love. But the women always seem to get the worst of it, don’t they, adam?

Adam: That’s good, nick. This is really good. I usually get my analysis from sharon when I come here. So, why don’t you continue?

Nick: Yeah, you did some damage to sally, but thank god your relationship just wasn’t that long. But let me tell you something. She’s too tough to be ground down the way you did with sharon and chelsea.

Adam: I… I thought that we had come to a deeper understanding after recent events, that we finally had something more connecting us than our father, who uses us as pawns. And now that’s just vanished. Why is that…brother?

Sally: Your fearless leader has returned. What did I miss?

Chloe: Oh, nothing important.

Sally: Oh, well, no news is good news, right?

Chloe: Yeah. You seemed to make a pretty good impression on nick, though.

Sally: What do you mean?

Chloe: Well, I ran into him at the coffee house, and he made it pretty clear that he’s your number-one fan now. Lots of glowing praises.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Seriously? Are you following me? Why do you always have to show up where I am?

Diane: Phyllis —

Phyllis: I mean, I don’t get it.

Diane: Phyllis, just relax. Kyle asked me to meet him here. I have no intention of —

Phyllis: Shh!

Diane: Don’t shush me.

Phyllis: Seriously. Shut up. They’re watching us. They planned this.

Diane: You’re right. Try to behave for once.

Phyllis: Oh, I’m not worried. You should be worried.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Nick: I know nate’s been having a hard time working at chancellor-winters. He’s struggling with the complications of working with his family. I’m sure he and devon have butted heads.

Victoria: The situation has become untenable for him.

Nick: But why make a move like this? It seems so unlike him.

Victoria: I don’t know. I was quite surprised when he came to me with the idea. But he has his reasons.

Nick: But it makes you wonder what happened to make him go so far as to leak insider information about his own company. It seems extremely vindictive.

Victoria: Nate’s an executive now. He’s looking at this as a businessman. He sees that it’s a smart move all around.

Nick: Obviously, he doesn’t think lily and devon would agree or he wouldn’t have gone behind their backs. So, if he’s looking at it as a businessman, my question is why? What’s in it for him?

Nikki: I-I don’t have any specific expectations for what will happen when I talk to deacon. I mean, I have a general sense of caution where he’s concerned. I mean, he has no conscience. He’s manipulative. He’s very self-serving.

Talia: Well, then it’s no wonder you’re on edge about this.

Nikki: Oh, he was perfectly fine with me being accused of a murder that he knew full well had not happened. So, yeah, I have my issues with him. I just know that I have to be focused and not let him distract me from my goal — exposing diane for the fraud that she is.

Talia: Mm. You know, nikki, my job requires me to be adept at reading people, at listening to what they’re saying and what they’re not saying. And what I’m hearing is this deacon guy has the potential to knock you off your game — or at least try.

Nikki: Well, that’s why i have to be on my guard.

Talia: You know, in my research, I learned you were married to him once.

Nikki: I don’t see how that’s relevant.

Talia: We’re talking completely off the record. I promise.

Nikki: Yeah. We better be.

Talia: Correct me if I’m wrong, but you’re about to come face-to-face with a man you haven’t seen in years, a man who, in your own words, is manipulative and without a conscience.

Nikki: Believe me, I can handle deacon sharpe.

Talia: Maybe, but it could be a good idea for you to talk this out first. It could help you to go in there feeling more solid and in control.

Nikki: Well, maybe you’re right. I mean, it would be good for me to get some things off my chest and be at the top of my game and stay in control. Off the record.

Kyle: I’m afraid you got it wrong. Summer and I didn’t invite you to join us for fun.

Summer: In fact, it’s the exact opposite. This is serious, and it’s something that we wanted to discuss with both of you.

Diane: Oh. I-I see.

Phyllis: Okay, well, this doesn’t sound good.

Kyle: Summer and I want you to know we have two priorities — peace within the family and productivity within the business.

Phyllis: Uh, okay. Well, we’re on the same page. Those are my priorities, too.

Diane: And mine, as well. No question.

Phyllis: There’s nothing that I want more than to see, you know, marchetti run smoothly.

Diane: And successfully. I hope you know how much i appreciate the opportunity you’ve given me.

Phyllis: Yeah, and it is my mission to make sure that all your dreams are realized with marchetti.

Diane: The most important thing to me right now is family harmony. Being close to you is the only reason I’m here. I can’t tell you how lucky i feel. And it means everything to me to be accepted back into your lives.

Phyllis: Well, we’re on the same page. Look at that. We are. We want to work in harmony, and we want to see marchetti succeed.

Kyle: Okay, we appreciate you are both in agreement. But summer and I will be doing the rest of the talking.

Summer: We’re glad to hear you saying all of the right things, but — I’m sorry — it’s not enough. You need to back up those flowery words with actions.

Kyle: So, here’s the deal. No more threats, no more accusations, no more trying to undermine each other in any way.

Summer: No more coming to us complaining about the other one.

Phyllis: Guys, that’s gonna be easy for me. I mean, honestly, I’ve been all but ignoring diane, I mean, despite her attempts to create conflict.

Diane: I merely let kyle and summer know about the mysterio file on my computer because i thought it could impact the company.

Phyllis: Oh, okay. Alright. So, for the good of the company, you decided I was responsible?

Diane: Phyllis, we all know that you’re the expert hacker. I was just trying to be helpful in pinpointing the potential source of the issue.

Phyllis: Okay. Alright. Cool. Well, I, in turn, um — I needed to defend myself, you know? And I — I denied these baseless allegations.

Kyle: Okay, look —

Phyllis: And I just wanted to tell you the truth, that’s all.

Kyle: Look, we don’t want to be put in a position of trying to figure out which one of you was being honest.

Summer: No, we are done refereeing your feud, okay? So, if there’s one more incident, one more confrontation…

Kyle: No matter who provoked it…

Summer: You’re both out.

This is john.

Nate: So, you’ve confirmed that his collapse was due to extreme exhaustion? Are there any other symptoms? How’s his heart rate and blood pressure? Have you run other tests? And your prognosis of his overall health at this time is? I see. Thank you for your time.

Imani: Well, based on what i heard, it isn’t awful.

Nate: Your father’s gonna be just fine. He’s suffering from extreme exhaustion. The doctor recommends he get some rest, which I know is easy to say. He’s gonna prescribe him something and encourage him to take better care of himself.

Imani: Oh. Thank god it’s not life-threatening. I couldn’t handle that right now. Just — nate, thank you again for explaining things.

[ Sighs ] And you always just give me so much peace of mind. Thank you.

Nate: Not a problem. But I think you should go see him.

Imani: Why? I mean, you just said it wasn’t serious. Is there something you’re not telling me?

Nate: Relax. I’m not giving you this advice because I think your father’s symptoms are worse than they appear. I’m just saying this because i know you won’t feel better until you go see him yourself. Okay?

Nate: Thank you.

Diane: Wait. We’re both out, no matter who’s at fault?

Summer: That’s right.

Diane: Well, that’s not fair. I mean, why should I be held accountable for her bad behavior?

Phyllis: Um… okay, just so I get this clear. So, if she does something, I get fired, too? That just doesn’t seem right.

Kyle: It won’t matter who said what or who did what to whom. You will both — both — be immediately removed from the company.

Summer: No questions asked, no excuses tolerated.

Diane: But —

Phyllis: Okay —

Summer: This is non-negotiable, period.

Kyle: We warned you from the beginning to stay out of each other’s way. You were told that any conflict between the two of you would be a deal breaker.

Summer: And now you know that we mean it. Besides, the two of you have limited need to interact at marchetti anyway.

Phyllis: Okay, well, that’s not entirely true. Diane is writing the press release for my division, so I’m going to have to be around her.

Kyle: True. But if you can’t handle the times when you do need to interact, you shouldn’t have the job in the first place. It’s just that simple. Understood?

Phyllis: Summer, are you really…

Diane: Kyle, don’t you think this is a little harsh?

Kyle: Mom, we have a company to run.

Summer: And we’re both committed to its success.

Kyle: Hey, we are in the middle of a huge transition. Moving a company from milan to genoa city is a mammoth of an undertaking, and this is a big step for jabot and my father, so this affects him, as well.

Summer: We just don’t need these kinds of distractions.

Kyle: Like I said, you’re both doing great work in your respective jobs. Neither of us want to lose you. We want to see you succeed and be a part of this adventure. But we are done making allowances.

Summer: We’re done with the attacks and the accusations. This is your last warning. Are we clear?

Phyllis: Yeah. Sure. Fine.

Diane: Yeah, whatever you say. You can count on me.

Phyllis: Is there something you’d like to say?

Diane: Oh, no, phyllis. You — you go ahead.

Phyllis: No, I insist.

Diane: [ Sighs ] I think it has been very difficult for the two of you to be caught in the middle between us. And that’s not fair. So I want you to know that i promise that you won’t have to deal with that anymore.

Phyllis: You know, it really breaks my heart that you’re having this conversation with us. I mean, I don’t want to stress you out. I just want to help you make this company grow into the success that you want it to be. So, don’t worry. I’m not gonna do anything. You don’t have to worry about me.

Diane: See? You don’t have to worry about this ever again.

Phyllis: No. It’s all good. I’m good.

Diane: Yeah.

Nikki: Deacon was around during a very low point in my life. I’m in recovery now, but back then I was drinking excessively. And deacon took advantage of that and worked his way into my life and became my enabler.

Deacon: If I didn’t know any better, I’d say you were stalking me.

Nikki: Oh, god. If I had known you were working, I wouldn’t have come here.

Deacon: Well, I’d probably be wounded if I didn’t know that was a lie. On the house.

Nikki: I don’t want it.

Deacon: Honey, I’ve earned enough of these and lost ’em…

[ Chip clinks ] …To know that’s exactly what you want.

Nikki: I cannot believe that I am here again. The — the lying and the sneaking around. I swore I would never put myself through this again.

Deacon: Okay. Alright. All right, listen. You know what we’re gonna do? We’re gonna make a pact, alright? Tonight, that’s it. We pour the booze out. No more slip-ups. Come on. Come on. Let’s pour it out. Good. Now, we gotta promise that we’ll be there for each other ’cause nobody else understands but us.

Nikki: But finally it was just too much for victor. He had had enough, and he moved on with diane. Then, the day that she supposedly “died,” I confronted her, drunk. Things got out of hand and I picked up a rock and I hit her with it in the head.

Talia: So that’s why authorities thought you were the one who killed her.

Nikki: And I was so drunk, i didn’t know if I had or not. Clearly, deacon took advantage of that situation.

Deacon: You know, I was born and raised in this town. God, I love me some las vegas. Nikki, come on. Please? I mean, you really don’t want to do this.

Nikki: You know, you’re right. If I put all these together, it’s still not enough to get me through a wedding to you.

[ Sighs ] Yes, hello. Could you please send up a bottle of vodka immediately? Thank you.

Nikki: As I said, it was a very dark period of my life. I hardly knew who I was, but i did know that I wasn’t the person I wanted to be. It took me quite some time to climb out of that hole. And once I did, I didn’t want to look back. But today, in order to face deacon, that’s exactly what I’m gonna have to do. Family is just very important.

Kyle: Thanks for understanding our position on this.

Summer: We’re glad that you both see why we had to take this step.

Phyllis: You don’t have to warn us again.

Dian: Oh, no, no. You don’t have to give this another thought.

Kyle: Great. Then we’re good. And now we can all head back to work with our new attitude and perspective.

Phyllis: That’s right! Let’s do it! Let’s do it!

Diane: That’s right. Everything’s going to work out just fine. You’ll see.

Phyllis: Yeah. Um, I have to make a phone call, so I’ll see you at the office.

Diane: Alright. I will see you shortly. Bye.

Kyle: Well, let’s hope that’s the end of it.

Summer: Yeah. Let’s hope.

Imani: You’re right. I’m gonna go to virginia today to see dad, and you don’t have to worry about me because I am not gonna fall apart.

[ Laughs ]

Nate: Okay. I’m sure devon would want you to use his jet. He’s probably gotten the news from amanda by now.

Imani: Yeah. I guess I’ll reach out to him.

[ Sighs ] I don’t know what it is about you. You — you’re just so calming and supportive, reassuring. I don’t know how I’d get through any of this without you.

Nate: I’m just glad I can be here to help.

Imani: Yeah, well, you were talking earlier about me being there for you, but you are the one that is always showing up for me. Nate, I think I’m the lucky one.

Nate: I guess that goes both ways…because I cannot begin to explain to you how helpful it’s been to have someone to confide in who really understands what I’ve been going through. Dealing with devon’s constant second-guessing and having all of my ideas shot down — it’s been frustrating, to say the least.

Imani: Well, of course it’s frustrating — because your ideas are amazing.

Nate: And that’s why i appreciate that you really listened to me. I mean really listened.

Imani: Well, about that… I hope that you are willing to listen to what I have to say to you right now.

Nick: Clearly nate brought you this insider information because there is some upside for him, something other than provoking his own family.

Victoria: Well, of course there is. The leadership of chancellor-winters.

Nick: Whoa. Are you saying you would make him ceo, leading the whole thing, above lily and devon?

Victoria: Yes. Why not? It’s what he told me he wanted in return.

Nick: [ Sighs ] It’s just such a mercenary move. I would never expect that of nate.

Victoria: Nate has learned a lot about how the game is played. He sees an opportunity, an opportunity that ultimately will be what’s best for everyone at chancellor-winters.

Nick: Oh, I’m sure that’s the speech he’s composing right now. He’s completely ignoring the fact that everything he is doing is absolutely unethical. And if he benefits from this financially in any way, it’s gonna invite some serious sec scrutiny.

Victoria: Oh, nicholas, would you just let me worry about that? I want to know what you think of the acquisition. Putting aside your feelings about nate’s role in it, don’t you think that it’s a smart move for newman enterprises?

Nick: It is impossible to take that element out of the equation. Nate felt so underappreciated, his response is to do an end run on lily and devon — and everything they did, they worked so hard to build by merging these two companies. Vick, they’re gonna take it personally because it’s personal.

When moderate to severe

ulcerative colitis persists…

Nate: Okay. I’m listening.

Imani: So, now I am talking to you as your biggest supporter. The reason I am constantly encouraging you to follow your instincts is because you’re really good, even if devon doesn’t give you the recognition you deserve.

Nate: I appreciate you saying that. I would like to believe you’re right.

Imani: No, I am not the only one. Lily and billy see the merit in your ideas, too. Now, maybe she didn’t side with you against devon, but that is definite confirmation you belong in the c-suite, that you were right to think big and bold.

Nate: [ Inhales sharply ] I’m only getting bolder.

Imani: Good, ’cause I don’t want devon undermining your confidence, always going around saying that maybe he gave you too much responsibility too soon, that you were ill-equipped to handle the transition from medicine to business. Because we both know that is not true.

Nate: Trust me on this. Devon has not undermined my confidence.

Imani: I understand why you got frustrated and thought you had to leave chancellor-winters. I get it. But I hope that you will reconsider. And I wish elena had never suggested it because you deserve to reap the benefits of your ideas. Devon has no reason to hold you back, and you need to show him that.

Nate: Once again, you’re tuned into exactly what’s going on with me.

Nick: Just think about it, vick. If you used nate’s insider information to take over chancellor-winters, lily and devon are gonna see it as an act of betrayal. And, frankly, there is no other way to look at it.

Victoria: They’ll be upset, at least initially, but they’re both aware of the risks involved in going public.

Nick: You know, there’s one other member of the chancellor-winters executive team that you haven’t mentioned yet. Does you wanting this company so badly have anything to do with billy?

Victoria: Why would this have anything to do with him?

Nick: Because I know you, and I know you’ve looked at this from every angle and thought about how it shakes out for everyone involved.

Victoria: Yes, I have made a few calculations.

Nick: Okay. Let’s just say we get you everything you want, get you those seats on the board. What does this mean for billy? Does he have to answer to you? Is that what this is about?

Talia: You are quite a remarkable woman. I admire your strength. It’s not easy to pull yourself out of a difficult time and reclaim your life.

Nikki: Well, I can’t take all the credit. I had a tremendous amount of love and support, and I realize a lot of people aren’t that fortunate. So, I had to be strong for myself — and, more importantly, for my family.

Talia: I hope talking about it all before going in to meet with deacon was of some value to you.

Nikki: It was. You know, uh, sometimes when you say things out loud, it lessens the power it has on you. Funny how that works.

Talia: From what I’ve learned about you, though, you are strong enough to deal with anything or anyone.

Nikki: No, you’ve been very good for me. God knows I’ve given you a lot of mixed messages.

Deacon: Listen. I’m just happy to be with you. Any time I get to spend with you is great, and I’ll take it any way I can get it.

Nikki: You are too nice.

Deacon: Oh, that is so funny ’cause it’s — everyone says that in genoa city. They say, “deacon sharpe is such a nice guy.”

Nikki: Will you just take the compliment, please? You’re not the evil bastard you want people to think you are. At least, not right now, not with me. And I’m very grateful for that.

[ Sighs ] And I’ve — I’ve got to stop doing this to both of us. I have to stop it. So, um, I’m gonna be leaving town for a little while, and I’m just gonna go see my sister. It — it couldn’t be a better time, actually. I need to get away, and, um, think and, uh, put some miles between me and… the coffee.

Deacon: [ Chuckles ]

Nikki: I just need to figure out what’s going on in my head…and in my heart.

Nikki: When you’re in recovery, especially early on, they warn you to avoid the people, places, and things that are associated with your addiction. That’s another good reason it was good for you and me to talk like this. I needed to remember exactly who and what deacon sharpe is. And I cannot be complacent because that’s when, if you’re not careful, you can really get into trouble. Hi, I’m karen.

Victoria: Billy’s potential role is not a factor.

Nick: So, you’re telling me you haven’t considered what the management structure of chancellor-winters will look like once you’ve installed nate at the top?

Victoria: I’m just saying that there’s nothing personal about this move. It’s — it’s all business, nicholas.

Nick: While I admire you channeling your inner dad, i don’t buy that answer for one minute.

Victoria: As far as I’m concerned, there is absolutely no downside to bringing chancellor-winters under the newman umbrella. Just think about how powerful and explosive that would be.

Explosive, yes, but not in a good way. Let’s put aside the undercutting of devon and lily, two people i greatly respect and care about. It’s a massive financial outlay, vick. Have you forgotten you recently went on a very impressive spending spree?

Victoria: Financing the stock buy is not an issue. Risk and reward, nicholas.

Nick: Have you run this by dad?

Victoria: No, not yet. But it is too big of a deal not to, so of course I will, and i also intend to get input from my co-ceo — mom. But ultimately, this is my call. And you’re right. You’re absolutely right. This is exactly the kind of move that dad would make.

Nick: And you think that’s a good thing?

Victoria: You know dad. He once had control of chancellor. He inherited it after katherine died. And although selling it made a lot of sense, I know it was hard for him to let go of her legacy. Now here we are. We have the perfect opportunity to get the company back. Can you give me one solid reason why we shouldn’t seize the moment?

Nick: Not one you want to hear, apparently.

[ Knock on door ]

Diane: I hope this isn’t a bad time?

Jack: Uh, no. It’s a perfectly fine time. Come on in.

Diane: I wanted to stop by and apologize.

Jack: Apologize? For what?

Diane: Well, I’m sorry I took my suspicions to kyle and summer about phyllis setting me up. I realized what a huge mistake it was, and, um, I’m also sorry if somehow you got in the middle of it.

Jack: Do you realize you were wrong, that what you accused phyllis of she was not guilty of?

Diane: I’m just saying I know now what a terrible position i put them in.

Jack: How so?

Diane: Well, because I forced them to mediate some issues between phyllis and myself, when really all they want are uncomplicated working relationships with their mothers.

Jack: Seems to me they’ve made that clear for a very long time now. What caused the sudden epiphany?

Diane: Kyle asked me to meet him at society, and summer did the same to phyllis. It was a setup. They wanted to address the situation with both of us together.

Jack: Wow. How did that go? Anyone throw any food?

Diane: [ Laughs ] No, it was actually quite civilized.

Jack: Well, that’s progress, I’d say.

Diane: Phyllis and I were on our best behavior. We had to be. They gave us a pretty harsh ultimatum. They said that if either of us does anything remotely antagonistic, we’d both be fired.

Jack: Tough love mixed with mutually assured destruction. Seems to me that’s plenty of incentive to get along now.

Diane: Well, we were both pretty shocked. I mean, it’s — it’s kind of unfair.

Jack: Then you and phyllis agreed on something.

Diane: That’s hardly a silver lining.

Jack: It could have been a whole lot worse. You and phyllis could have lost your jobs.

Diane: I suppose. It was kind of an odd role reversal, our kids sitting us down and reprimanding us, laying down the law like we were the obstinate children that needed disciplining.

Jack: Well, were they off base? (Rose h) smoking caused my lung cancer.

Nate: You’re right. I do want to show devon he’s wrong about me. Maybe I did act prematurely by walking away. I let my frustration with devon get the better of me. But there is still a lot I want to accomplish in my role at chancellor-winters.

Imani: I’m very happy to hear you say that. But now you have to promise me that you’ll be back at chancellor-winters when i return.

Nate: That is the plan.

Imani: You’re a pretty awesome guy, nate.

[ Both laugh ]

Nate: Good luck in virginia.

Imani: Thank you.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Nate: Victoria. Good to hear from you.

Victoria: Nate, I’ve been thinking about your proposal, and I’d like to meet.

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Summer: I am choosing to remain…hopeful about our mothers’ ability to follow through.

Kyle: Mm, I’m with you on that. Now that the situation’s been dealt with, we can put our energy where it belongs.

Summer: Mm. That’s right.

Kyle: Mm. Like focusing on making marchetti a huge success.

Summer: No! You’re kidding me, right? I was talking about our vow renewal. The next time the four of us get together, we’re gonna be talking about music and flowers and our color scheme.

[ Both laugh ]

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Hey, nikki. It’s me. I mean [Sighs] Please tell me you’re getting enough pay dirt in los angeles to drive this bitch out of town.

Diane: I don’t think kyle and summer needed to threaten our jobs to prove their point.

Jack: The way you and phyllis have been behaving, you honestly are surprised that summer and kyle felt they were forced to handle the situation the way they did?

Diane: Well, I wouldn’t say forced. That’s a little strong.

Jack: Come on, diane. You have to admit, even though you and phyllis claim that you have your priorities straight, it appears the two of you are enjoying this war. And I have to wonder if it’s more important to you than your commitment to work and to family.

Diane: That’s ridiculous. Why would you even say —

Jack: Listen to me. I know what I’m talking about. I have been there with victor. Our ongoing battles after a while looked like they were shaping who we were. Don’t let that happen with you and phyllis. Do not get lost in the hatred. Do not feed off the animosity and confrontation. Don’t fall into old habits.

Diane: You say this like you’re concerned for me. I’m — I’m touched.

Jack: I am concerned about kyle and summer.

Diane: Yeah, but I bet you’re not giving this same advice to phyllis.

Jack: Oh, believe me, I have tried repeatedly. And I get the sense that I’m not gonna get through to phyllis on this particular subject. I hope the same can’t be said of you.

Diane: Jack, I can assure you I am taking all of your advice to heart. And I promise that things will be different from now on.

Jack: I’m glad to hear that. For kyle’s sake — and yours.

Diane: [ Raps desk ]

Chloe: I brought some cappuccinos and, well, your favorite pastries from that Italian place that you love.

Sally: What’s the occasion?

Chloe: Oh… I just wanted to make up for the way I acted yesterday.

Sally: What way was that?

Chloe: Chewing you out about Adam. I — I said some things that i just — I wish I hadn’t.

Sally: I see.

Chloe: So, this is me trying to apologize. You know, I just want to put things behind us and start over. And when it comes to Adam, we can just agree to disagree. As long as you can keep your personal life separate from your work and not miss any more important meetings, I think that —

[Sighs] You know, I’m — I’m sorry again. I really didn’t mean to go there. I feel like I’ve been scolding you all the time lately, and it’s not appropriate or professional, and it’s not conducive to our being friends. Are we on the same page?

*************************************

Victoria: Oh, is that what we’re calling it?

Nick: I’m handling it, okay?

[Knock on door, door opens]

Sally: Victoria, I was hoping that you… have a minute?

Victoria: What can I do for you, sally?

Sally: I’m here to apologize to you directly for missing the meeting yesterday. I’m just making things right with the team.

Victoria: Yes, so I’ve heard.

Sally: Sometimes life encroaches on work, and I know you understand that as well as anyone. I’ve seen you handle a crisis in your personal life without missing a beat here at Newman, and I’m seriously in awe of your ability to do that. But I feel like I have the inner resources and steely resolve that you have, so, in time, I’m confident that I will be able to emulate your example. But yesterday I screwed up, and it was my mistake. It will not happen again.

Victoria: Good.

Diane: I am so sorry. I didn’t plan to be here this late. I fell asleep reading to Harrison.

Jack: Oh, no.

Diane: Yeah, he’s — he’s still down for the night. But, um, I conked out in that little chair next to him.

Jack: I know from experience it’s not the most comfortable place to knock off.

Diane: No, no, it isn’t. Um, I guess Kyle and Summer went upstairs to bed and didn’t even realized I was up there. I’m a little — I’m a little embarrassed about it.

**********************************************

Victor: You’re so tense, baby. I’ve never seen you this tense before a flight.

Though near or far

Nikki: Well, you seem calmer than when I saw you earlier.

Victor: Mm-hmm. Well, I did many rounds on the heavy bag.

Nikki: Oh. Did you win?

Victoria: And you should be. That’s what I wanted to say. Congratulations.

Lily: Wow. Thank you.

Victoria: You’re welcome. Look, I’m really sorry that things got unnecessarily tense between us for a while. I was dealing with Ashland, and, honestly, I feel like the stress of that just — just kind of affected every part of my life. But I’ve put that behind me now, and I feel like I’m starting a new chapter and getting a fresh start. And I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate you as a peer. I mean, you and I — we’re part of a very exclusive club, female CEOs [Chuckles] Which thankfully is growing. And I just think that we need to recognize and value each other whenever and wherever we can.

Lily: Thank you for saying that. And I am very honored to be a part of the club. Maybe we should have, like, a secret handshake

*******************************************

Victor: You can’t understand, not this time, man. You know, fathers and sons often have difficult relationships. I was very, very proud to call Adam my son. But he’s also caused me a lot of heartache. But I must say that I have had nothing but good intentions where he is concerned. Of course, that applies to my other children, as well. Anyway…

[Inhales deeply] Not easy being a father sometimes, is it?

Jack: Well, we certainly try.

Victor: Yeah. And by the way, my apologies, okay? I’ve been remiss in conveying my condolences in regard to Keemo.

Nick: Glad to hear it.

Chloe: I come in peace. I got you some cappuccinos and, well, your favorite pastries from that italian place that you love.

Sally: What’s the occasion?

Chloe: Oh… I just wanted to make up for the way I acted yesterday.

Sally: What way was that?

Chloe: Chewing you out about adam. I — I said some things that i just — I wish I hadn’T.

Sally: I see.

Chloe: So, this is me trying to apologize. You know, I just want to put things behind us and start over. And when it comes to adam, we can just agree to disagree. As long as you can keep your personal life separate from your work and not miss any more important meetings, I think that —

[ Sighs ] You know, I’m — I’m sorry again. I really didn’t mean to go there. I feel like I’ve been scolding you all the time lately, and it’s not appropriate or professional, and it’s not conducive to our being friends. Are we on the same page?

Sally: About what?

Chloe: Starting fresh. Let’s just put adam aside, eat a pastry, and, you know, tackle all of this work that we have to get to. Sound good?

Sally: Yeah. Yeah, you’re right. Um, I should immerse myself in work. But to do that, there is something that I — I need to take care of first.

Chloe: [ Sighs ]

[ Knock on door ]

Nick: Morning.

Victoria: Hi. Morning yourself. I was hoping that you would be in early. I was just going over some of the final details of some of the acquisitions that we’ve made, including who’s gonna be running them once they’ve been absorbed into newman enterprises.

Nick: Any preliminary thoughts?

Victoria: Well, I’m — I’m still very intrigued by the idea of nate hastings. I did a little recon about the state of play at chancellor-winters with billy, and it turns out that things have been tense over there for a while. So maybe nate — maybe he really is leaving.

Nick: Happened to run into nate at society last night.

Victoria: And?

Nick: Seems like he’s ready for a change.

Victoria: Interesting. The only problem is, how do we utilize him?

Nick: Do we have a place for him in any of our new acquisitions?

Victoria: Well, if I had an obvious fit, I’d make an offer to him right now, but unfortunately, most of the senior roles are requiring specialized expertise.

Nick: Why can’t we just create a position then, just to get him in the door?

Victoria: Anything’s possible. I think I’ll give it some thought. So, moving on to our other employees, how are things with sally?

Nick: In what sense?

Victoria: I’m assuming that you put her on notice since she blew off that marketing summit yesterday. Don’t you dare tell me that you accepted her apology and let it go. Did you?

Devon: Alright, who else we waiting on?

Lily: Uh, no one. Billy is dealing with an issue with the ad agency, so I’ll fill him in later.

Devon: Alright. I take it from your message that you want to discuss nate quitting?

Lily: Well, I’m still hoping that he will change his mind and cool off, but in the event that he doesn’t, I want to know what our exposure could be.

Devon: And what do you mean by exposure?

Lily: Well, what are the legal and business ramifications of your coo’s abrupt departure? I mean, we don’t know. Did he sign an nda? Is there a non-compete clause in his contract? I mean, can he take ideas that he developed here to another company?

Imani: You mean all of those great ideas you two shot down?

[ Scoffs ] Guys, I can’t believe what I’m hearing. The guy’s chair isn’t even cold yet, and here you are starting to talk about legal ramifications? So, what, neither one of you is gonna try to talk to him, try to smooth things over? Is that how this family operates?

Devon: Imani, how come you’re being so defensive of nate?

Imani: [ Scoffs ] Because clearly someone has to be.

Nate: [ Exhales heavily ]

[ Groans lightly ] What time is it?

Elena: I let you sleep in a bit.

Nate: [ Sighs ] Thanks for the tea.

Elena: I tossed and turned all night. Couldn’t sleep. I hate when we argue.

Nate: Yeah. So do I.

Elena: Look, I understand that you are under a lot of stress. I know quitting your job is not a decision that you came to lightly. And I wish it weren’t necessary, but I get that you feel like you were at the end of your rope.

Nate: I’d say I was beyond the end.

Elena: So I want you to know that I want to be here to support you. And I also want to help you move on to your next opportunity, whatever that may be… and repair your relationship with your family. I’m hoping, after a good night’s rest, you want that, too, and that you’ve changed your mind about going forward with the plan that you shared with me?

Nate: On the contrary. I’m more resolved about that than ever.

Additional sponsorship

provided by… my blood pressure is borderline.

Elena: Nate. Please do not do this. You left chancellor-winters on your own terms. Can you just leave it at that? You can do anything you want now. You’re not under devon’s control anymore. But if you go further with this plan, it’s only gonna cause more trouble.

Nate: So be it. I highly doubt devon and I can get past this conflict.

Elena: Okay, so, what about lily? She’s been doing nothing but trying to keep the peace. She brought you into this company. She gave you a chance. And she’s been backing you up.

Nate: Only to a point. And in the end, she’ll side with devon each and every time, leaving me the odd man out.

Elena: So, what, you want to punish her, too?

Nate: [ Sighs ]

Elena: Have you even thought about how much this is going to hurt her? This feels so wrong to me.

Nate: And it feels so right to me.

Elena: [ Scoffs ] So, here we are, arguing and fighting again.

Nate: Because you’ve misconstrued my motives. I’d be helping lily because, ultimately, I would be helping chancellor-winters, the family business lily fought so hard to create. Elena, I am out to succeed. I am an asset, not a liability. That’s what no one seems to understand.

Elena: Except for imani?

Nate: She’s helped me to see my value. My ideas are strong, and I am forward-thinking. What is wrong with that?

Elena: There’s nothing wrong with being a visionary. But this is not what you’re talking about.

Nate: [ Sighs ] I disagree. My ideas are big, and this is the right move for me to make, so I’m not gonna stop. This is my time. And it’s the best way I can see to make a lasting mark so I can finally take control.

Elena: So then that’s it? You’re determined, and there’s no talking you out of it?

Nate: My mind’s made up, and I’m gonna set things in motion today.

Lily: Imani, we are a strong family. We have tried to work things out with nate, and we will continue to do so. But as the leaders of this company, it is our responsibility to know where things stand when it comes to the intellectual property that nate has been overseeing. And as a lawyer, you should know this. I mean, amanda does. She’s the one who told us to confirm these details.

Imani: Okay, well, the best way to protect our intellectual property is to keep nate around. Guys, he is such an asset to this company. He’s got strong ideas, a real passion for the work that we do. I’ve been trying to convince him to stay. And I think if we all put forth a genuine effort to make sure he knows he’s valued, he could be swayed.

Devon: Imani, I’m not gonna try and convince anyone to be here who doesn’t want to be here, okay? The man made up his mind. It’s not gonna change just because someone flatters him.

Imani: [ Scoffs ] That’s not what I said.

Devon: Well, either way, I do think it’s the best thing that he left ’cause he and I can never find common ground, and i didn’t see that changing.

Imani: Guys, this blows me away, how easy it is for you to just let nate go.

Lily: None of this has been easy. And I’m sorry, but I don’t know what you’re getting at.

Victoria: You’re hesitating, which means I’m right. You’re gonna let sally get away with this?

Nick: She made a mistake, vick.

Victoria: Oh, is that what we’re calling it?

Nick: I’m handling it, okay?

[ Knock on door, door opens ]

Sally: Victoria, I was hoping that you… have a minute?

Victoria: What can I do for you, sally?

Sally: I will make time. The abcs of ckd

Sally: Isn’t it gorgeous out?

Nick: Yeah. It’s nice to get outside and enjoy it.

Sally: Mm-hmm. Yeah, it’s the kind of day that just stimulates your senses and makes you feel alive and excited.

[ Both chuckle ]

Nick: You know, you don’t have to do that with me, sally. Try and make small talk. We can be honest with each other.

Sally: I don’t want things to be weird at work.

Nick: Me either.

Sally: Adam came to see me last night after our weird dinner.

[ Both chuckle ]

Nick: You mean after i dropped you off at your place?

Sally: Yeah. He made some — I guess you would call them declarations. And they messed with my head. They made me feel pretty conflicted.

Adam: Is sally around?

Chloe: Uh, she got called into a meeting with nick. That’s all I know.

Adam: When I was ceo, I don’t think I interacted once with the newman coos. At least, not about work.

Chloe: Maybe because it was nikki, who wanted nothing to do with you, much like me. So, if you could please make yourself scarce.

Adam: Are nick and victoria keeping a heavier hand on the day-to-day operations? And if so, why? What could that mean?

Chloe: What are you getting at?

Adam: I’m just wondering.

Chloe: If you’re trying to insinuate that they don’t trust our new leadership, just say it.

Lily: Imani, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have snapped at you.

Imani: Obviously, we all feel strongly about this.

Lily: Yes, we do. And just for the record, I have not given up on nate. I will continue to try to talk to him. And I hope that you will keep an open mind in case I can win him over — ’cause this whole thing has spiraled completely out of control and at the worst possible time.

Devon: Why are you concerned about the timing of it?

Lily: Because I think that, you know, what jill suggested is the right way to go.

Devon: Well, let’s hang on a second ’cause —

Lily: Well — [ Stammers ] Look, let’s just pretend that nate isn’t coming back, okay? So, please look into his contract and let us know what we’re up against.

Imani: Done. I will track down information on the nda and non-compete, if they exist. But thank you. Thanks for not giving up on him yet. See you guys later, okay?

Lily: Mm-hmm.

Devon: Yeah.

[ Clears throat ]

Lily: [ Scoffs ] I mean, i wasn’t expecting that kind of pushback.

Devon: Yeah, I think that, uh — I think she has a thing for nate.

Lily: Uh, yeah, you think?

[ Scoffs ] Uh, look, also, um, when we talk about the ipo, let’s just keep it between us, billy, and jill.

Devon: Well, you talk about it like it’s already a done deal. Do I not have a say anymore or…?

Lily: What do you mean? Of course you have a say. We’re equal partners.

Devon: Then why does it sound like you’ve already made up your mind and you’re siding with jill?

Lily: I’m not siding with anybody.

Devon: Okay. What do you want to call it?

Lily: Look, all that’s happening is that there’s a possibility of an ipo on the table, and we’re in the beginning stages of exploring it.

Devon: Right. I just think that you’re about to make an impulsive decision about something that’s really important.

Lily: Impulsive?

Devon: Mm.

Lily: Really?

Devon: Yes. Impulsive.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Okay. You know, I don’t appreciate you challenging my decision-making process just because it’s different from yours.

Devon: It’s not just ’cause it’s different from mine. I know I’m not the only one that has concerns about going public. Billy feels the way I feel, doesn’t he?

Lily: Yeah, of course, but, devon, I mean, we have to sit down and hash things out — and get approval from the board, which could take a long time.

Devon: Well, I hope it does.

Lily: Look, this is between us, okay? It’s our responsibility to make this decision. It’s our decision, yours and mine.

Devon: And jill’s, too. There’s three people involved, two of them are on board, and I’m the only one who’s hesitant. So I’m on my own in this.

Lily: [ Sighs heavily ]

[ Folder thuds ] For copd,

Adam: Chloe, calm down. I’m not insinuating anything. I’m just asking a question. Why are you so quick to assume you and sally are on the chopping block? Has she said anything about it?

Chloe: Okay, well, if you must know, it’s because she missed a very important meeting yesterday because she was with you.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Chloe: Yes. I know all about it.

Adam: She told me about her scheduling gaffe when I was with her last night, and I — I felt terrible, okay? The last thing I want to do is cause more problems for her, chloe.

Chloe: The two of you were with each other again? Twice in one day?

Adam: Yes.

Chloe: Adam!

Adam: What?

Adam: You broke up with her, and you crushed her. She was confused. And then she finally starts feeling like herself again and she gets her stride back and then you just come out of the woodworks and start causing problems. Do you not understand how cruel that is? Or do you just not care? Why are you so compelled to always destroy every single person you were ever in a relationship with?

Adam: Enough! I don’t need this kind of abuse from you, chloe. And my personal life is none of your business.

Chloe: Well, when you hurt my friend, it is my business.

Adam: And for the record, i only have sally’s best interests at heart. Not that I will ever convince you of that.

Chloe: No. You sure as hell won’T.

Adam: Okay. I’m out of here, alright?

Chloe: [ Sighs ]

[ Cup thuds ]

[ Sighs ]

Nick: I don’t think I need to ask you what adam’s declarations were about.

Sally: I’m sure you don’T. ‘Cause he made it pretty clear where he stands last night during our awkward conversation at society.

Nick: I know I’ve been trying to warn you off him.

Sally: You and everyone else in this town.

Nick: Look, I know that you had — well, you have very strong feelings about my brother. And I don’t want to make things more difficult for you if you’re trying to get back together with him.

Sally: I-I’m not saying that that’s where things are headed, you know? Or even if that’s something that I’d want —

Nick: Look, I don’t think we should talk about adam. I understand messy and complicated love. But that is for the two of you to sort out, without me being any kind of factor whatsoever.

[ Knock on door ]

Victoria: What is it?

Adam: I’m looking for sally. I heard she had a meeting with nick, and they weren’t in his office.

Victoria: Oh. You just missed them. I think they stepped out to grab some coffee. Shouldn’t you be settling into your new position at jabot? I guess if you have all this free time to be chasing around after your ex, it’s not that important of a job. It was probably a mercy offering from jack since he’s one of the few people who can still tolerate you in this town.

Adam: Oh, it’s a real job. Mm-hmm. And I have a lot on my plate. But, uh, I am capable of multi-tasking.

Victoria: Unlike sally?

Adam: What’s that supposed to mean?

Victoria: Well, if you were actually in touch with her, you know damn well what that means. She was supposed to give a presentation at a marketing summit yesterday, and she completely blew it off. Chloe had to step in for her. This is not a behavior that i value in one of my ceos.

Adam: Do you have any idea why sally was a no-show?

Victoria: Well, luckily i have my coo to take care of my personnel issues. Nicholas got into it with her. Something about extenuating circumstances, the fact that it would never happen again, which remains to be seen.

Adam: Well, one missed meeting shouldn’t make or break someone’s career, victoria.

Victoria: Oh, I agree with that in theory. But I also know that people are replaceable, which is something that I hope nick is making very clear to sally right now.

Imani: Ah. You want some company? Sure, you do.

Nate: Eating and running. Busy day ahead.

Imani: Hmm. You’re not the only one. Trust me. Lily decided to call an emergency meeting at the crack of dawn.

Nate: Emergency for what?

Imani: You. Seems the powers that be are shaken up by your resignation.

Nate: Devon, too?

Imani: Mm, not that he’d ever admit it. Look, I tried to reason with him, encouraged him to reach out, talk things through, but you were right. He is very stubborn.

Nate: That’s one way to put it.

Imani: [ Chuckles ] Now, lily, on the other hand, seems to want to work things out for you to return. I think she’s going to lean on him and kind of —

Nate: I’m gonna stop you there. I know what you’re trying to do.

Imani: Standing up for you to the head honchos?

Nate: Which I appreciate. But I believe I have a much better, more powerful solution, thanks to you.

Imani: Mm. Do tell.

Nate: You suggested I think more — what was the word? — Ruthlessly. Well, I’m planning on taking your advice starting today.

Imani: Mm.

Who’s on it with jardiance?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

What can you do

with sensitive skin?

[ Bottle thuds ]

Elena: Ooh! Whoa! Sorry.

Devon: Oh. So sorry. No. It’s my fault. I wasn’t paying attention at all.

Elena: Obviously, I wasn’t, either.

Devon: My bad. Hey, can I get a coffee to go, please? Thank you.

Elena: Hey, is everything alright?

Devon: Oh…

[ Chuckles ] I’ve been better. How about you?

Elena: Same.

Devon: I’ll give you one guess as to who’s got us both down.

Elena: Yeah. Let’s just say nate is on a path that does not make me happy.

Devon: Well, I’m sorry to hear that ’cause I know he quit so he wouldn’t have to keep bumping heads with me. And I feel bad about that ’cause when I hired him, I had every intention of it working out.

Elena: I know you did.

Devon: Honestly, though, i really think this is probably the best ’cause, you know, on paper working side by side looked good, but we have very different philosophies.

Elena: That’s for sure.

Devon: I hope this isn’t causing you any stress at home.

Lily: Hi. Sorry.

Elena: Hey.

Lily: I don’t mean to interrupt. I just need to speak with you privately.

Devon: You need to talk right this second?

Lily: Yeah, that would be great.

Elena: It’s okay. I actually need to get going. It was good to see you both.

Devon: Yeah, you too. I promise we’ll catch up.

Elena: Okay.

Adam: Victoria, you’re overreacting. If sally says she’s not gonna make a particular mistake again, you can take that to the bank. She’s conscientious to a fault. She’s hungry to succeed here.

Victoria: Why are you still advocating for your ex? I thought you broke up with her. I thought you were the one who ended things. If your continued presence in her life is causing this distraction, for the love of god, why don’t you just let her go? I mean, if you really, really care about her, why don’t you just let her get on with her life?

Adam: I am just so sick of everybody telling me that, victoria. I’m trying to right a wrong. Isn’t that what civilized, evolved people do?

Victoria: Yes, but I’m —

[ Chuckling ] I’m sorry. Is that what you’re claiming to be now?

Adam: I’m trying to prove that is what I am now.

Victoria: Oh. And you really expect me to believe that — that you love the woman?

Adam: I learned a long time ago not to expect anything from you. But, yes, I do love sally. And I made a terrible mistake thinking that I was helping her, and I’m trying to fix that. I guess you can’t understand admitting that you screwed up. You just like to forge ahead, pretend like you didn’t leave a wake of destruction. So I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that you have no clue where I’m coming from.

Sally: Yeah, I need to steer clear of any complications ’cause I realized by letting myself get distracted yesterday, I put everything in jeopardy. My judgment hasn’t been great, as you know. So I just need to keep my attention laser-focused on newman media. What was it that you texted me yesterday? “Ceos miss meetings sometimes.”

Nick: Yeah. Everyone slips up once in a while.

Sally: Yeah, well, I can’t afford to. I mean, not now that victoria’s so ticked off at me. But I do appreciate your understanding. You know, I think you and i should have the same for each other in this moment.

Nick: Yeah. Yeah. So, should we head back to the office?

[ Door bangs ]

[ Door closes ]

[ Both breathing heavily ]

[ Belt clatters ] At metro by t-mobile… you can save more.

[ Keys clacking ]

Nate: Your focus is impressive. I admire that, when someone can lose themselves in their work like that. I’m the same way.

[ Chuckles ]

Victoria: What brings you by, nate?

[ Door closes ]

Nate: I have a proposal that I believe will be of great interest to you.

[ Both breathing heavily ]

Sally: W-well, that did not go according to plan.

Nick: No, not at all.

Sally: [ Exhales sharply ] I did not intend for this to happen again, I-I swear. I didn’t even think it was a possibility.

Nick: I mean, this, uh — this attraction, whatever it is we’re calling it… I never thought in a million years.

Sally: A billion years.

Nick: Trillion.

Sally: Quadrillion.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Pentillion?

Sally: Quintrillion.

Nick: [ Clicks tongue ]

Sally: Closely followed by sextillion. I kid you not.

Nick: [ Smooches ] Remind me never to go up against you in trivia night.

Sally: [ Chuckles ] What can I say? I have expertise in all sorts of areas you would never expect.

Nick: This is, um… unexpected. Surprising.

Sally: Well, we could analyze it to death, or we could just order some room service, grab a shower… eat lunch, and… get back to work.

Lily: I know that we need to have a serious conversation about the possibility of going public, but I feel like there’s something more pressing right now.

Devon: You’d like to talk about nate some more?

Lily: Yeah. Um, I am really upset that the tension between you two has gotten to the point where nate feels like his only option is to quit.

Devon: Yeah. So do I. Do you blame me for it?

Lily: I mean, frankly, yeah, I kind of do. And, look, I’m not saying that he’s blameless because he’s not, you know? But I feel like there’s something going on inside of your head where you won’t accept anything that he has to offer, even when he addresses your concerns. I just — I-I feel like you’re being unfair to him.

Devon: I don’t know where you’re getting that from ’cause I listen to everything he says.

Lily: Hold on. Let me just — wait. Let me just — I’m sorry. Let me just finish ’cause I just want to get this out.

Devon: Sure.

Lily: [ Sighs ] I wanted to do this merger because I wanted to build on what you and dad had created. I wanted to build something for our family. And so I don’t want to lose nate. I can’t lose him, okay? So, please, devon, please — I just need you to consider your part in this. Like, why? Why is it so hard for you to let him have a win every once in a while?

Devon: That’s not what it is.

Lily: Okay. Then what is it? I mean, what — just tell me. I mean, have you been autonomous for so long that maybe it’s hard for you to, you know, give up a little bit of control? ‘Cause if that’s the case, I get it. You’ve had control over things for a long time, especially the music side. So, you know, it can be hard to delegate, and that’s fine. That’s totally fine. If that’s the case, let’s talk about it. Let’s figure it out. We’ll work it out. Or, what, is it deeper than that? I mean, are you subconsciously trying to punish nate for what happened with elena?

Victoria: A proposal? Well, that sounds intriguing.

Nate: First, some news. Jill’s informed upper management that she wants to take chancellor-winters public.

Victoria: That’s a very big move for a family company. I mean, particularly one that’s merged so recently.

Nate: Devon’s first knee-jerk reaction was to say no. Typical. Billy seemed hesitant. But lily’s all-in. I believe she and jill will prevail.

Victoria: Did jill say why she was proposing this?

Nate: The usual reason — to raise capital for a rapid expansion. Meanwhile, I know you’ve been on a shopping spree for newman.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] I guess you could say that.

Nate: I’m willing to be your inside man feeding you information, anything that can be helpful so you can be ready to make your move.

Victoria: Are you suggesting what I think you are?

Nate: You can buy up shares for newman, gain majority control of the company. Smooth dark chocolate, refreshing peppermint,

Devon: Lily, nate and I got past that situation with elena a long time ago. This isn’t some kind of payback. And I’m not a vindictive person, so it doesn’t feel great that you would imply that about me.

Lily: Okay. I’m sorry. I-I am. I just — [ Sighs ] I mean, come on. I’m trying to figure this out to keep our family from falling apart.

Devon: I understand completely what you’re trying to do. I just don’t know what to tell you. I really don’T. I mean, you know what? Maybe there’s some truth to what you’re saying about my leadership skills. I know it’s my instinct to take charge. I tend to think I know what’s best, which I guess can be annoying to some people, but that’s only because of all the experience I have. I’ve been working in the business world since I was a teenager, with neil. You know this. I know what to look for. And I usually can see the pitfalls about 10 steps ahead of any idea nate brings to me.

Lily: I know that. I know. And I get it. That’s fine. But, I mean, sometimes people have to make their own mistakes. It can’t always be you, you know, showing someone the next dangerous curve ahead.

Devon: So, what you’re saying is that, in order to get nate to believe that I know more about business than he does, I need to be more open to his ideas and give him the opportunity to fail.

Victoria: Well, I have to say, I’m — I’m completely stunned that you would come here to tell me this. Why would you help newman gain a controlling share of chancellor-winters?

Nate: You said you admired my ideas, my energy, my skills. You know I’m ambitious, driven to make a mark in the business world, to prove this is where i can shine.

Victoria: And you think that feeding me insider information is the way to do that.

Nate: You want to find a place for me at newman? Well, this is the place I want. I’ll help you acquire chancellor-winters shares if you put me in control of the company.

Victoria: You would that to your own family?

Sally: [ Sighs ] Have you seen my phone?

Nick: Right here.

Sally: Geez. Just kick them both under the bed, why don’t you?

Nick: Don’t tempt me.

Sally: Anything important?

Nick: No. You?

Sally: Nothing that can’t wait. I should get back to the office, though. Room service is taking forever. So, do you mind if I cancel?

[ Knock on door ]

Nick: Must be them now.

Sally: Hallelujah. I thought that you’d forgotten about me.

Next week on “the young and the restless”…

Adam: Are you sleeping with my brother?

Kyle: Summer newman abbott, will you make me the happiest man in genoa city? Will you marry me again?

Deacon: You know, I got to admit, I’ve — I’ve thought a lot about you over the years, you know, all the things that we went through together.

Nikki: Is that right?

Deacon: Absolutely. I wondered how you were doing. Oh, and, nik, one more thing. You look good.

Nate: One of those days, huh?

Nick: Ooh, yeah. Andy, can I get a beer? Thanks, man.

Nate: I hear you. I, um, just had to stop by for a quick drink or two to, uh, clear my head. You too?

Nick: [ Sighs ] Who am I kidding? It’s been more like one of those months. Or even years.

[ Chuckles ] So, yeah, let’s get a drink.

Jack: Hey, trace. I’m just wrapping things up here. Join me for a nightcap.

Diane: [ Chuckles ]

Jack: Oh, I — I didn’t realize you were here.

Diane: I am so sorry. I didn’t plan to be here this late. I fell asleep reading to harrison.

Jack: Oh, no.

Diane: Yeah, he’s — he’s still down for the night. But, um, I conked out in that little chair next to him.

Jack: I know from experience it’s not the most comfortable place to knock off.

Diane: No, no, it isn’T. Um, I guess kyle and summer went upstairs to bed and didn’t even realized I was up there. I’m a little — I’m a little embarrassed about it.

Jack: No, there’s no need to be.

Diane: Yeah, but now I’ve interrupted your time to unwind.

Jack: Don’t be silly. You are reading to our grandson. That’s hardly an intrusion.

[ Door closes ]

Nikki: Hey. Have you seen my travel chargers?

Victor: Have I seen your what?

Nikki: My travel chargers. I — I got tired of trying to keep track of every charger for every device, so I bought a lot of extra ones and I tucked them into this little case.

Victor: Huh. That’s a brilliant idea.

Nikki: Well, yeah, I thought that, too, but now I can’t find the case.

Victor: Oh, baby.

[ Glass thuds ] My baby.

Nikki: Well, I need them for my trip.

Victor: I know. I know. I know. I know.

[ “Unforgettable” playing ] Come here.

Nikki: [ Chuckling ] What?

Victor: Come here.

Nikki: What are you up to?

Victor: I think that you can buy whatever gadget it is in california.

Nikki: [ Sighs ]

That’s what you are

Victor: You need to relax now. Come here.

Unforgettable

Victor: You’re so tense, baby. I’ve never seen you this tense before a flight.

Though near or far

Nikki: Well, you seem calmer than when I saw you earlier.

Victor: Mm-hmm. Well, I did many rounds on the heavy bag.

Nikki: Oh. Did you win?

Victor: Well, whatever the imaginary foes were, I knocked them all on their ass.

Nikki: [ Laughs ] Oh, this is so nice. But I do have a lot of packing to do.

Victor: Baby, it’s okay. Don’t worry, okay?

[ Smooches ] Enjoy the music.

Unforgettable

in every way

Sally: [ Breathing heavily ]

Adam: [ Sighs ]

[ Doorknob rattles ] Sally?

[ Knock on door ]

Sally: [ Sniffles, sighs ]

Sally: Did you follow me home from society?

Adam: Why would I be interested in following you home?

Sally: No reason.

Adam: When we were at society, you didn’t mention that you were staying here.

Sally: The gcac was nice, but it was a little stuffy, so I was glad to get out of there.

Adam: Well, on behalf of the long-term grand phoenix residents, welcome back.

Sally: Thank you so much.

Adam: Can I come in for a nightcap?

Sally: I-I have a lot of work to catch up on.

Adam: Sally, I just want to talk. Just one drink. That’s it.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Diane: The problem is that once harrison becomes sleepy, it’s contagious.

Jack: Oh, tell me about it. And it doesn’t help that he wants to listen to the same stories over and over again.

Diane: [ Chuckling ] Oh, yeah. I must have read the bunny story at least six times. I mean, how many times can a little rabbit hop down the trail?

Jack: [ Chuckles ] Well, you know, I caught him at something the other day.

Diane: What’s that?

Jack: Well, you know how he has those dozens of dinosaurs?

Diane: Oh, I’ve seen them all.

Jack: I’ve always been very impressed that he knew the names of all of them.

Diane: I know, and he points them out — tyrannosaurus rex and triceratops.

Jack: Yeah, but he has a secret. He’s making up half of them.

Diane: What?

Jack: Well, I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt, but I had to draw the line at peanutbutter-asaurus.

Diane: [ Laughs ] Peanutbutter-asaurus?

Jack: Yeah. He tried to sell me as a legitimate name. I called him on it.

Diane: And what did he say?

Jack: He just giggled at me.

Diane: Oh, he is such a little stinker.

Jack: Yeah, and he has the charm to pull it all off. Listen, I know you don’t want to interrupt my evening, but there’s no reason I should have to relax alone. Um, can I maybe offer you a drink?

Diane: That would be lovely. Actually, a cup of tea would be nice. After the hectic day I’ve had, I could, um, use something to calm my nerves.

Nate: To surviving another day.

Nick: Yes, sir. I assume your troubles are related to ashland locke?

Nick: [ Chuckles ] Man, that was like three crises ago. You know, we put out one fire, another one just takes its place. It’s constant. You would have thought that when ashland died, the chaos would have gone away, but there’s just more to it, you know? There’s long-term consequences for everything.

Nate: I’ve been dealing with some of those same long-term consequences after my dealings with ashland. For the longest time, I felt suckered. After I found out ashland lied to me about being sick, i thought he chose to exploit me because I’m weak. But that’s not true. I’m not weak. I’m ambitious. And ashland saw that. And you know what? There’s nothing wrong with that. With so many nourishing shades,

Nick: There’s absolutely nothing wrong with ambition, nate. Within reason, you know? You don’t want it to be, uh, malicious or predatory. When that happens, people can sink their claws into anyone or anything, the old and the young, the weak and the strong. Then it turns malicious, whether you intended it to or not.

Nate: Mm. Fair enough. I put it all behind me anyway. It took some time, but I let go of all of my animosity towards ashland.

Nick: Good for you, man.

Nate: I hope victoria has moved on, as well.

Nick: Oh, yeah. She’s killing it, you know, completely focused on running newman. She was born to do that job.

Nate: I don’t know what role I’m destined to play in the business world. I’m still trying to figure out what it is I’m supposed to be doing with my life.

Nick: Things aren’t cool at chancellor-winters?

Nate: [ Chuckles ] Let’s just say I’m questioning a lot of things right now.

Nick: Well, I’m sure you’re gonna, you know, find your path. You’ll carve out a niche for yourself.

Nate: I don’t know about that.

Nick: Well, nate, if things don’t work out at chancellor-winters, you know there’s always other things you can do. Who knows? Maybe you end up at newman someday.

Nate: Thank you for your confidence in me, nick. I really appreciate it. Um, but, you know, I think things are going to start to turn around for me very soon.

[ “Unforgettable” playing ]

Victor: Baby, you’re not normally this uptight before a trip.

Nikki: Well, this trip is different.

Unforgettable, too

Victor: I mean, I know you’re gonna meet this deacon sharpe character. Show him how strong and tough you have become, okay?

Nikki: Yes, I — I plan on that. It’s just gonna be hard, though. I think I’ve been in denial about that.

Victor: Look, baby, why are you still upset about that after all this time?

Nikki: [ Sighs ] I don’t know. I mean, I was confident when i first made the decision to confront him, but — I don’t know — I think my conversation with victoria kind of shook me. I mean, I am concerned about the negative memories that this meeting will bring up, but not just for what they might do to me…but to us.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Adam: Thank you.

Sally: [ Sighs ] So, what is it that couldn’t wait till tomorrow to talk about?

Adam: [ Sighs ] I don’t know if I had anything specific in mind. It wasn’t anything urgent or anything. I just —

Sally: Adam — adam, I have a really big day tomorrow.

Adam: I miss you.

Sally: Please don’t make me regret letting you in here.

Adam: Look, I’m — I’m sorry. What happened at the pool bar — I don’t know if I overstepped or I was picking up on a vibe that wasn’t there.

Sally: [ Scoffs ] It still isn’T.

Adam: I moved too quickly, and I apologize.

Sally: You should not have moved at all.

Adam: Look, I know that i blew it with you in every way possible. But the fact is, I haven’t stopped loving you. And I don’t want to let you go, sally.

Moving forward with node-

positive breast cancer

Elena: Nick. Hey.

Nick: Hey, elena. I was just, uh, talking to your man in there. I think he’s going through something.

Elena: Oh. Uh, thanks for the heads-up.

Nick: Yeah. Good luck.

Elena: Nate. Everything okay?

Nate: [ Breathes deeply ] I quit.

Elena: What?

Nate: I left my job at chancellor-winters.

Elena: Okay. Wow. Uh, the last time we talked about it, you said you were gonna to stay and try to work things out.

Nate: It was spontaneous. No notice and, uh, not on the best terms.

Elena: Nate. What happened?

Nate: More of the same. Devon admonishes me like a child, doesn’t give me credit, doesn’t trust me. He says I need to be a team player, but it doesn’t seem like he wants me on his team. And I couldn’t take it anymore.

[ Scoffs ] Even when lily and billy agree with me, devon’s need to control the situation surfaces. So I constantly have to acquiesce or not have a say at all. And this time, lily insisted we stay in the room and try to figure things out. And you know what? That made it easier for everyone, and I walked out.

Elena: [ Sighs ] Nate, I was hoping you would at least keep your familial connections intact.

Nate: You weren’t there, elena. Devon did not give me a choice. And honestly, it’s not up to me alone to keep the peace.

Jack: For you.

Diane: Thank you. That’s exactly what I need.

Jack: Oh, I aim to please.

Diane: Mm.

Jack: So, what upset you today?

Diane: Oh, it was nothing.

Jack: Well, it had to be something if you mentioned it.

Diane: Things just got a little crazy at the office, but you don’t need to know the details.

Jack: Is something going on at marchetti I should know about?

Diane: Oh, no, no. The work is good. It’s just…some of the people. Or, should I say, one person.

Jack: I see.

Diane: I’ve tried, jack. I have. But being at the same company with phyllis is very challenging.

Jack: Sometimes we have to work alongside people with whom we do not see eye to eye.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Jack: The secret is to focus on the job. That’s the reason you’re there. The more focused you are, the easier it is to block out any interference with your goals.. I can handle phyllis. I can handle anything she dishes out. I’m not intimidated by her. I just hate the pressure that it puts on kyle and summer. They shouldn’t have to — to worry about their mothers in constant conflict at the office. Maybe me working for marchetti was a mistake.

Victor: You know, sweetheart, I think our relationship is so strong right now — and has been for a while — that I don’t care what deacon sharpe will come up with. He’s not gonna affect it. But I’m concerned about how your visiting him and meeting with him will affect you.

Nikki: I don’t like the person that I was back then. You and I would go out of our way to hurt each other over and over. We’d make decisions on hurt feelings and misinformation. It was just a terrible time in my life. And deacon sharpe was front and center.

Victor: I know. I love you. Lots of ups and downs then, okay? A lot of things that affected our relationship. You know, if there’s one thing i could do again, it is go back in time, erase all the pain that I’ve caused you.

Nikki: I know. The feeling is mutual.

Victor: But, having said that, if you feel so trepidatious about your trip to california, then why the hell don’t you stay here?

Nikki: No, victor, I have to go. I mean, I know seeing him is going to be very unpleasant, but he is the only one who has information that I need.

Victor: Oh. About that damn diane jenkins?

Nikki: Yes. Damn diane jenkins. You know, back when she was “killed,” I thought that deacon was trying to help me avoid jail time for a crime that I didn’t commit. Come to find out there was no murder and deacon knew about it the entire time.

Sally: I did not need to hear that right now.

Adam: Look, sally, why don’t you sit with me and we can figure this out?

Sally: No. I prefer to stand. Thank you very much.

Adam: You know, since we’ve been apart…I’ve seen you, sally. I’ve seen how strong you are, how well you are doing.

Sally: And you hate that?

Adam: I love that. Seeing you succeed makes me think I made the right decision. I mean, it was wrong to do it unilaterally. I know that was a mistake. I know that now.

Sally: Oh, god. Finally. I mean, it took you long enough.

Adam: Look, when we were together, we worked so well together personally and professionally. I mean, we supported each other in a way that nobody else has supported either one of us before. And I’m committed to getting that back.

Sally: Adam —

Adam: With both of us at different companies now, you at newman media and me at jabot, we can avoid the work/family conflict. I mean, that was always the problem.

Sally: So, what? Now, in your mind, we go right back to being together again?

Adam: No. No, I meant when I said. I — I want to earn your forgiveness… and maybe someday earn your love again. Come on, sally. We have so much more potential. I know you’ve realized that I’m a jerk, and maybe I am beyond forgiveness… but are you really ready to throw away what we had? Ughh!

“The young and the restless”

will continue. Can you imagine a world where moms and kids agreed

Sally: Your timing could not be worse.

Adam: Really?

Sally: Yes.

[ Exhales heavily ] I… I shouldn’t even tell you this right now because you — you don’t deserve my honesty at this point.

Adam: Uh, well… what’s going on?

Sally: [ Breathing heavily ] Earlier today, I made an error in judgment.

[ Sighs ] I can’t even believe this happened. I missed a very important meeting because I was at the rooftop bar with you.

Adam: [ Exhales sharply ]

Sally: I prioritized spending time with you, the man who broke my heart and caused me so much pain, and I neglected my job and my own ambition.

Adam: Sally, I — I had no idea.

Sally: Yeah, of course. How could you? I mean, why would you pay attention to anything that doesn’t center around you?

Adam: That’s not entirely fair.

Sally: It’s almost like — it’s almost like missing that meeting wasn’t entirely an accident. It’s like part of my brain wanted to believe that the meeting was actually later so that I could spend time with you. Being with you is intoxicating and apparently prevents me from thinking rationally.

Adam: And I feel the same way about you.

Sally: Yeah, but that’s not a good thing, adam. We can’t act like irresponsible teenagers. We are adults. We have responsibilities. When I was at that rooftop bar with you, it’s like I had this nagging feeling that — that — that I was missing something, and instead of looking into it, I just ignored it. And I chose instead to hang out with the man who shows me little respect.

Adam: Yes, I admit my treatment of you has been unacceptable.

Sally: Yes, it has. And I have continued to put up with it and — and neglect my own well-being. It’s like you’re an addiction. It’s not healthy. It’s toxic. And letting you in, letting you get to me was a huge mistake.

Victor: To be very honest with you, I would love to take care of that bastard deacon sharpe all by myself, if you’d let me.

Nikki: It’s not your fight, victor. It’s mine.

Victor: But, darling, that’s not quite true. That man has done a lot of damage to you, to me, to our family, okay? I’ll just — I’ll ride on the plane with you.

Nikki: I know you would, but I need to do this on my own. And even though I have reservations about this trip, you and I are in a better place than we’ve ever been. I’m not worried about us at all. And there is nothing deacon or anybody else can do to take anything from us.

Victor: But what if someone tried, sweetheart?

Nikki: Let them.

Victor: Good. I like that. And they better not.

Elena: Honestly, I’m relieved you left chancellor-winters. You’ve been so unhappy.

Nate: Mm. I’m glad you understand why i left.

Elena: Yeah, and I am sure a better opportunity will present itself soon. When one door closes —

Nate: Another door opens. And I’m pretty sure I know where that leads.

Elena: What do you mean? Do you have another job lined up?

Nate: Not exactly.

Elena: What are you saying?

Nate: I think I’ve figured out a way to make it clear to devon and everyone else at chancellor-winters just how capable and forward-thinking I really am.

Elena: [ Sighs ] I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Adam: I think — I think you’re right, okay? My clumsy attempts to reconnect with you — they have been selfish and they have been poorly conceived. But there is something between us, sally. You’ve said so yourself.

Sally: But things have changed.

[ Sighs ]

Adam: Look, I’m sorry. I am sorry for monopolizing your schedule today. That was inconsiderate of me. But our time together was not a waste. It was an investment in us, in our future. And I know that you feel the same way.

Sally: There are a lot of things that I need to invest in right now. And unfortunately… you cannot be one of them. You understand business. There are assets and liabilities. Right now, you are a huge liability to me, with no foreseeable return on investment.

Adam: You’re speaking to me in a language I understand.

Sally: I know. I have learned some things. Running a media company is very different than running my little fashion house. I no longer get to set my own schedule. I have a lot resting on my shoulders, and not just with the company, but also the livelihood of all of its employees. Focusing on my love life right now is not something that I can do. I mean, just having a conversation with you has negatively affected my work. I just need to clear my head and refocus.

Adam: I see. I see. So, is this what you and nick were talking about in his office? Losing your focus?

Jack: I disagree with your conclusion that you should leave marchetti. Why give up now? Kyle wants you there. If the whole goal is to build the bond between mother and son, this is the way to do it. Stick to your plan.

Diane: [ Sighs ] Well, getting closer to kyle has been wonderful, but today —

Jack: You said yourself i don’t need to know the details of what happened. Look, I have faith that kyle will make the right decision. You should, too.

Diane: I do.

Jack: So let him make the decision. It’s what’s best for the company. It’s what’s best for strengthening the bond between mother and son.

[ Mug thuds ]

Diane: You’ve become very wise.

Jack: Maybe it just seems that way relative to how unwise I was in my youth.

Diane: [ Laughs ] Well, thank you for your advice. You know, things are a little complicated, but I think you’re right.

Jack: I think maybe at this stage in our lives, we should give in to the idea that life is, if nothing else, complicated.

Diane: Yeah, that’s an understatement. And I want to stay at marchetti. I want to prove that I’m up to the challenge. And it’s not just for kyle anymore.

Jack: No?

Diane: No. It’s for you, too.

Nikki: You know, even though I have apprehension about this trip, I think that it will be very productive. If there is anything illegal in diane’s past, deacon will know about that. He was instrumental in her schemes here, so he’s sure to know something about her time in los angeles.

Victor: But, sweetheart, why don’t you allow me to send my team to california and bring that bastard back to genoa city?

Nikki: What do you mean? Kidnap him?

[ Glass thuds ]

Victor: Well, I didn’t say that, but, you know, offer him a first-class round trip.

Nikki: Victor, you are not going to talk me out of this trip to L.A.

Victor: You are so stubborn. Okay. I give in. You’re going to california to find out from deacon sharpe all you can about diane jenkins so we can finally send that woman the hell out of town, right?

Sally: What nick and i discussed is of no concern to you. It was a business matter.

Adam: I’m just asking to make sure they’re not going to fire you, sally. Missing a meeting might be all they need.

Sally: I really don’t want to get…into what happened with nick, especially not with you.

Adam: What does that mean, especially not with me?

Sally: Because you don’t work for the company, obviously. In fact, you know what? I-I think it’s just best if — if we avoided each other right now.

Adam: I don’t think that’s necessary.

Sally: You know what? Just finish your drink, go back to your room, and I think we should just call this goodbye for now.

Adam: You’re dismissing me?

Sally: Well, I’m — I’m asking you to leave.

Adam: Alright. It’s your room, your rules.

[ Glass clanks ]

[ Sniffs ]

[ Breathes deeply ] Look, I know that you are saying the things that you feel you need to say, the things to get you through the pain that I have caused you, but… I’m asking you to listen to your heart again. I know how deeply you feel, even when you do your best to pretend like you don’T. It’s one of the things I love about you. I realize I hurt you, sally. But I meant every word that i said today. This entire time, I thought that I was protecting you. But I realize how stupid that was. I was wrong, and I am aware of that. And through the whole thing… I never stopped loving you. And I don’t think that love went away for you any more than it did for me. This book has helped me reach so many young homeowners

Elena: Nate. No. You cannot do this.

Nate: Why not?

Elena: It’s a horrible plan.

Nate: Which part?

Elena: All of it.

Nate: I can’t believe this. Once again, you are not supporting me.

Elena: Of course I support you, but sometimes that means letting you know when you’re making a mistake.

Nate: I am building a new career. Unfortunately, that’s not always gonna be easy. You were the one who said i should walk away from chancellor-winters in the first place.

Elena: Not like this.

Nate: Okay, so you don’t like the way I’m taking a step back? The truth is, you never wanted me to leave medicine, so i shouldn’t be surprised you’re hesitant now.

Elena: That is not what this is about, and you know it. I just find it extremely hard to believe that you going through with this plan is gonna get you where you need to go.

Nate: I don’t expect you to always agree with me, but I need you to understand where I am coming from. I honestly have no other viable options.

Elena: Nate, I have been by your side on this path from the beginning, and I have been willing to follow you down this journey, wherever it may lead, but this is going too far. You would be compromising your integrity, and that shouldn’t be a part of business, especially a family business.

Nate: Everything I am doing is justified after what devon put me through.

Elena: I don’t think that’s true. This is not just about you and devon. Other people could be affected. This is wrong. And I want to believe, in your heart, you know it’s wrong. Come on, nate. You need to think this through.

Jack: In what way does your desire to stay at marchetti involve me?

Diane: I’ll tell you. Remember when I said that i hoped that we could become friends?

Jack: Mm-hmm.

Diane: Well, I take pride in us getting closer to that goal. I mean, come on. Look at us. Could you have imagined us sitting here like this a couple months ago?

Jack: No, I definitely could not.

Diane: No.

Jack: But this is nice.

Diane: It is nice. And I do take pride in how far we’ve come. But maybe I shouldn’t since pride is one of the deadly sins.

Jack: [ Laughs ] I think we have all fallen prey to pride.

Diane: [ Laughs ]

Jack: I want you to know i truly admire your determination to prove you’ve changed.

Diane: Thank you. I probably should get home.

Jack: Oh, okay.

Diane: Yeah, I have another big day at the office tomorrow.

Jack: Oh! I had no idea how late it was. Look, if — if you don’t feel like driving, you can stay in one of the guest rooms.

Diane: I should probably go. But thank you for your hospitality, jack. Good night.

Jack: Good night.

Victor: I will have my security team follow you every step while you’re in L.A.

Nikki: I told victoria you would insist on that.

Victor: You bet.

Nikki: But, darling, please make sure they’re discreet. I don’t want them to spook deacon.

Victor: Sweetheart, at the sign of any trouble, they will be there for you, alright?

Nikki: I’m sure it won’t come to that. But I’m glad for the extra sense of security.

[ Both smooch ]

Victor: After what happened to victoria, we can’t be careful enough, my darling. And you know damn well family means everything to me.

Nikki: That’s why I love you.

[ Smooches ]

Nick: Vick, you here?

[ Sighs ]

[ Cellphone vibrating ]

Sally: [ Sighs ]

[ Sniffles ]

Adam: Something important?

Sally: Huh?

Adam: The text.

Sally: [ Sniffles ] It’s none of your concern.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] Maybe not, but I can’t help but be curious.

Sally: Adam, you are looking for answers and chances that i just can’t give you. I need time. And space. [ Sighs ] So, you know what? I think — I think it’s best that you just go.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Sally: [ Sniffles ]

[ Door slams ]

[ Exhales sharply ]
