Episode # 9593 ~ Chloe Objects to Jana's New Job

Provided By Suzanne
Proofread By Emma

Chloe: Sage...

Billy: (Sighs)

Chloe: Was an absolute nightmare. I will never style that girl ever again.

Billy: Yeah? What else?

Chloe: Um... (Sighs) You know what? That--that's it for now. I know you've got a lot going on with the baby, so thanks for squeezing me in.

Billy: Yeah, it's a good thing you're tiny.

Chloe: So how's Lucy?

Billy: You know, outside of Delia, there's never been a more perfect kid.

Chloe: Yeah, my mom is watching her tonight, right?

Billy: Yeah, she is. Thank goodness. But after today, it won't be a problem anymore because the, uh, nanny interviews are starting.

(Cracks knuckles)

Chloe: Oh, well, don't you think I should sit in on them?

Billy: Why?

Chloe: Because Delia is at your house all the time. She's going to be watching her, so I think that I should have a say.

Billy: Oh. Well, Chloe, I-I think I have it. The ad clearly says "No wack-jobs need apply," so...

Kevin: (Sighs)

Jana: Kev, what a-- what a delightful surprise.

Kevin: Yeah, I, uh, left work early hoping to run into you. We need to talk.

Jana: There's a phrase that sends a shudder down one's spine.

Kevin: (Clears throat) Well, it's about the living situation. I don't want to sound insensitive, but, um, I think it's time you found somewhere else to live.

Jana: (Sighs)

Michael: Nicholas, you're supposed to be sitting on this side of the table.

Leslie: Your honor, Nicholas Newman has been added as a plaintiff in the lawsuit.

Michael: Uh, your honor, we were not informed of this latest development.

Judge Phelps: Mr. Newman, is this true?

Victor: You're joining your sisters?

Nick: You should probably direct all your questions to my attorney.

Judge Phelps: Ladies and gentlemen, we will continue arbitration after a brief recess. Mr. Baldwin, Ms. Michaelson, get this straightened out.

Sofia: Hey, Lily, it's Sofia. (Chuckles) Look, you don't have to call me back, but I just wanted you to know I picked up some of those éclairs you like for our girls' night. I'm really excited about hangin' out and seeing you and those little babies. Um... (Sighs) I know it's been a rough day. Well, okay, I'll see you soon. Bye-bye.

Neil: So what can I do for you, Honey?

Lily: Nothing. Just explaining to Jill, Colin, and Uncle Malcolm why I needed them to leave was enough. I mean, I know they're trying to help, and I feel bad about it. It's just...

Neil: You don't want to deal with that now.

Lily: Yeah, exactly.

Neil: Nobody took offense, all right? They know that you were burying your husband today, so...

Lily: Is that what you told them? That I was upset about the burial?

Neil: Well, that's all they need to know.

Lily: You don't think they would want to know that I saw Cane standing a few feet away from me, and that I ran to him, and he was gone? Because that's what's freaking me out.

Neil: Okay, Lily, I really--

Lily: I mean, what is wrong with me? Am I losing my mind?

Neil: (Sighs) No, Honey. No.

Lily: (Sighs)

Woman: Billy?

Billy: Mm-hmm.

Woman: The first nanny candidate is here.

Billy: Oh, great. Perfect. Hi, how are you? I'm--

Girl: Billy Abbott. I am super excited to meet you. (Giggles)

Billy: You, too. Okay, sit down, please. All right, so we--

Girl: I love your magazine, almost as much as I love kids. Do you think you'll ever interview Taylor Swift?

Woman: I was an au pair for a family in New York. I have outstanding references. I swim daily and play tennis. I bet we'd have fun playing singles.

Billy: (Chuckles) Uh, yeah, um, the only person I play tennis with, or really anything, is my wife. (Chuckles) So... see?

Woman: Mm.

Woman: Those are my ten principles of discipline for children. I do not abide by the soft discipline methods employed by the general populace.

Billy: That's interesting, but my baby is an infant.

Woman: Never too young to learn how to behave.

Jana: You and Chloe are a couple. Believe me, I get it. But you don't need to toss me out just to prove your point.

Kevin: I am not tossing you out. I'm just saying I need this to happen sooner rather than later.

Jana: Oh, why? Did your new bird tell you that I'm some sort of a nut job and you just can kick me to the curb now?

Kevin: (Scoffs) That is not it at all. Jana, look, you have been through a cra-- a terrible, terrible ordeal, but you have come out like a champ. You're getting therapy. You're holding down a steady job. You're moving on with your life.

Jana: You know, a lot of that credit goes to you, Kevin. I'm strong because of you, and I don't know what I'm gonna do if I lose your support.

Kevin: I can still help you if you're living somewhere else.

Jana: No room for Jana, right?

Kevin: (Sighs) I'm not being insensitive about this.

Jana: Well, you know, Kev, from a tenant/landlord perspective, just a little warning would have been nice. It's not gonna be easy for me to find another place to live. I don't make a lot at the preschool, you know.

Kevin: Well, then take some time.

Jana: (Sighs)

Kevin: Take a week, and if you need cash, I can--

Jana: No, you know what? No, thank you. I'll manage on my own. You've obviously done so much already.

Kevin: (Sighs) Jana, again, I am not being harsh about this.

Jana: I know what you meant. Don't you worry. I'll find another place to live as fast as I can.

Chloe: Oh.

Jana: Oh, God.

Chloe: I thought you would be knee-deep in finger painting right now.

Jana: Liza switched the school schedule. No art today. You know what? That's funny, though, because all the active parents at school seem to know that. But I suppose you do know that Kevin's in there, don't you?

Chloe: Yep.

Jana: Yep. Nice to know what your priorities are.

Chloe: Oh, yeah, my priorities right now-- closing this door.

Jana: God, she's so wrong for you, Kevin.

Jana: And I'm gonna prove it.

Neil: It's shock. You know, losing your husband, the overwhelming grief. It's natural to feel this way.

Lily: Seeing Cane walking around the graveyard is not normal.

(Knock on door)

Neil: Yeah? Oh, hey, Sofia. Come on in.

Sofia: Hey. Mm.

Neil: Good to see you.

Sofia: Hey, Lily. I called. Did you get my message?

Lily: Um, no, sorry. My, uh, my phone's been turned off.

Sofia: Oh, is this, uh, is this a bad time?

Neil: Well, um, Lily is, uh, she's a little, you know, out of sorts.

Sofia: Look, no problem. I can drop this stuff off in the kitchen, come back later, or I can turn around and walk away-- your call.

Lily: No, uh, just stay. It's fine. I'm just in the middle of a meltdown. (Chuckles)

Victor: (Sighs)

Michael: (Sighs)

Victor: My children are ingrates. Not one of them realizes what I have sacrificed to build this company. Not one of them realizes where I started-- from nothing.

Michael: Look, I know Nick's behavior is upsetting, but you've got to pull yourself together. Judge Phelps is not gonna put up with any more interruptions.

Victor: I don't give a damn what the judge will or will not stand for.

Michael: Victor--

Victor: This is outrageous.

Michael: Listen to me. A few hours ago, Nick was all set to be our witness. What happened? Does it have something to do with what I walked in on in your office?

Victor: (Sighs) My son and I argued. He didn't like what I had to-- to say.

Nick: So I called Leslie and told her I wanted to join the lawsuit.

Abby: A-and you couldn’t...

Victoria: (Sighs)

Abby: Have given us a heads-up?

Leslie: Well, you know, I didn't want to make an official announcement just in case Nick changed his mind.

Victoria: With you on our side, we're that much closer to winning the arbitration.

Abby: Is that true, Leslie?

Leslie: Uh, eh, no guarantees...

Abby: (Chuckles)

Leslie: But I will admit, this does strengthen our case.

Victoria: (Chuckles) That's great.

Abby: Great. Great! Then we can all get used to seeing that look on Dad's face. You know the one-- disappointment, hurt, devastation all rolled into one big, mean, nasty glare.

Victoria: (Sighs)

Abby: Oh, a-and, I mean, you're his firstborn son, his protégé. He is gonna see this as a huge dis. We are all completely doomed. But welcome to the club.

Victoria: Okay, Abby, please. Just save the drama for your TV show and focus.

Abby: (Scoffs)

Victoria: All right? Nick is joining us, and we are a united front against Dad, and this is huge! This is huge!

Abby: (Sighs)

Victoria: And you-- I just asked you to stay neutral, I mean, even just to not take Dad's side, and--and I didn't expect you to join us as a plaintiff. I mean, what changed your mind?

Nick: It's time Dad stops callin' the shots in our lives.

Lily: And I ran towards him, and he was gone. And even just saying it out loud just makes me feel like such an idiot.

Baby: (Fusses)

Neil: I'm gonna go check on the twins.

Lily: Okay.

Neil: Don't be so hard on yourself, Baby.

Sofia: You know, your dad is right. You don't need to be so hard on yourself. So what's this? You saw Cane the other day at the funeral, right?

Lily: Yeah, but that was because I wanted to, because I needed to feel him close to me. I mean, I-it's kind of the same thing as when my best friend Colleen died. You know, I-I would see her, and I would talk to her, and it would bring me peace.

Sofia: Mm.

Lily: But seeing Cane at the graveyard? I mean, that was just unsettling. And he just came out of nowhere, and I could have sworn that he was real. And it was so different from the other day, because, I mean, I-I-- I was convinced that he was standing there.

Sofia: I do understand. It's very similar to when my father passed away.

Lily: Really?

Sofia: My father raised me all by himself. He was an excellent professor. He taught me everything about business. And when he died, I was a wreck. There was this park, um, right outside my apartment where he used to play chess, and, uh, sometimes I would walk by, and I would swear that I saw him. Or sometimes I would walk there, and I would think I heard his voice. And I would break down all over again. And one day-- you know, it wasn't-- it wasn't all the time when--when I'd think I'd see him or heard him-- I just had the full-on ugly cry right there on the sidewalk. And all these people would be staring at me, and I wanted to just lock myself in my apartment and never come out again.

Lily: But you didn't, though, right?

Sofia: Nope. I'd say to myself, "Sofia, you can lock yourself away and cry all day long, or you can do what your daddy taught you and face the world head-on." And it took me some time, but I got there.

Lily: (Sighs) Well, that's the thing, though-- I don't have time. Charlie and Matty need me to be strong. And if I'm not, then I just feel like I'm letting them down.

Sofia: I think you're putting too much pressure on yourself, Lily. You have a support system here that would put down everything to lend you a hand. Just lean on us. The life you pictured, the future you thought you wanted, that's gone, baby. But one day, you're gonna wake up and realize that this new future, the one you never expected, that one's gonna be okay, too.

Kevin: Well, I felt bad giving her a deadline, but...

Chloe: (Sighs)

Kevin: (Sighs) It was time.

Chloe: You know what?

Kevin: What?

Chloe: I am really liking this take-charge Kevin.

Kevin: Good. Good. 'Cause we're done trying to sneak around and find a place to be...

Chloe: Mm.

Kevin: Alone.

Chloe: (Giggles) I'm just surprised that we didn't find Jana handcuffing herself to the door.

Kevin: Well, I think it was hard for her to hear, but she took the news... well.

Chloe: Mm-hmm, yeah. Well, better be careful, just in case "Driving miss crazy" didn't get the message.

Jana: When you dropped Delia off the other day, I heard you and Victoria were looking for a nanny.

Billy: Mm-hmm. Yeah, do you have somebody in mind, or...

Jana: Me.

Billy: You? All right, why not? Have a seat.

Jana: (Laughs)

Michael: Your honor, I would like to request a continuance in order to depose Nicholas Newman.

Judge Phelps: (Sighs) I don't want a lengthy delay, Mr. Baldwin.

Michael: I understand and respect that, your honor, but I will need time to prepare given the unexpected developments of today. Unfortunately, Ms. Michaelson neglected to inform us of this turn of events.

Leslie: Oh, now who's employing cheap theatrics? You're trying to stall, Counselor.

Michael: Is that what I'm doing? Cheap theatrics, Counselor?

Judge Phelps: Mr. Baldwin, clear your schedule and get this done. My office will inform both of you of a time to reconvene.

Victor: I want to talk to you now.

Nick: You really want to do this here, Dad?

Michael: (Whispers) Victor, this is not the place.

Kevin: Okay, look. I get why you would be skeptical, but I am "Take-charge Kevin" now, remember?

Chloe: Mm-hmm.

Kevin: And if I have to take Jana's things and throw them out in the hallway, I will, but I don't think it's gonna come to that. So what do you say you and I take advantage of this alone time? Or, you know, you could just keep whining.

Chloe: Mm. Let's get back to the "Taking advantage" part. I like that. And thank you. Thanks for doing this for us.

Jana: I'm certified in both child and infant C.P.R. It was a requirement at the preschool.

Billy: That's great. Um, do you have any questions for me?

Jana: Uh, well, in-- in addition to Lucy, I assume I'm going to be watching Delia, as well.

Billy: Yeah, is that a problem?

Jana: No, no, not at all. Delia and I get along great in art class. Watching two girls is nothing compared to preschoolers in smocks armed with paintbrushes.

Billy: (Laughs) I bet.

Jana: (Laughs)

Billy: Uh, well, your memory-- the whole forgetting thing. Uh, how's that going?

Jana: (Sighs)

Billy: You know, I mean, these are--these are kids. There are schedules and nap times and...

Jana: Oh, yeah, you're-- you're asking if I'm gonna leave Lucy on top of the car door and drive off or something, right?


Billy: (Chuckles) Yeah. That's--that's what I'm asking.

Jana: Most of my memory has returned. I assure you, I have no problems with day-to-day functions, okay? Or short-term memory, and you can even phone Mrs. Morton and ask her. It has not affected my performance at the school whatsoever.

Billy: But why do you want this job? I thought you liked working at Tiny Tots.

Jana: Yeah. Um, it fulfills my artistic side. And I do. I love working with the children, um, but the salary... (Sighs) It's just--it's not enough to pay the bills. And plus, I'm gonna be moving out of Kevin's, so I'm gonna have so many more bills to pay soon.

Billy: Moving out because of Chloe?

Jana: (Sighs)

Billy: You know, those two are so perfect for each other. Sorry. I-I imagine that's still pretty raw for you.

Jana: (Sighs) I'm fine. I'm fine. Really. Kevin's been very patient and kind. But that relationship is finished now, so... I'm really ready to start over. I am. I'm so ready. (Sighs)

Victoria: I realize we haven't really been close in a while, mainly due to the lawsuit, I'm sure. So to have you on our side, it... it's kind of indescribable. (Sighs) And I want you to know that it-- it really tore me up inside when Dad and I had our falling-out, so I can pretty much imagine how that was for you.

Nick: Dad's out of control right now. I caught him in another lie. I asked him to man up and tell the truth, and he wouldn't do it. Now he expects me to sit across from you and Abby and testify that he's on the up-and-up with Newman Enterprises and that I'm supporting everything he's doing. Well, right now, that couldn't be further from the truth. He plays by his own rules and expects us to just look the other way. Well, I'm not gonna let that happen anymore. Everyone talks about how ruthless Dad is. Wait till he sees how ruthless I can be.

Michael: Well, Nicholas joining the lawsuit is a serious blow. He was the one Newman heir who could dispute Abby and Victoria's claim that you mismanaged their trust funds, that the Dubai debacle wasn't just business as usual, but an attempt to dispose of assets before your daughters could get their hands on them.

Victor: (Sighs) My son is lashing out. That's all.

Michael: But you're still not gonna tell me why. Fine. But whatever happened is having serious repercussions on this case so, uh, if there's any chance that you can get your son back on your side or even back out of the case, do it, and do it now.

(Cell phone rings)

Nick: It's Dad.

Victoria: You don't have to answer that, you know.

Nick: Eh, I'm not hiding from him. Dad?

Victor: I want you to come to my office. You and I need to talk in private.

Nick: I'm on my way. He wants to meet me at the office.

Victoria: Hold on. Are you sure?

Nick: Oh, yeah. I'm actually looking forward to this.

Victoria: (Sighs)

Sofia: Silly.

Lily: (Chuckles)

Sofia: Oh.

Neil: Hey, Girls, sorry to interrupt.

Sofia: Oh, um, we're all right.

Neil: Yeah.

Sofia: Aren't we?

Lily: Yeah. (Chuckles) So how are the twins?

Neil: Twins?

(Static crackles)

Neil: Well, Matty’s great, and, um, Charlie is grumpy because Grandpa can't find his favorite binky.

Lily: Uh, I think it's actually in my room. I will go look for it.

Neil: Okay.

Neil: Sofia... (Clears throat) I heard what you said to Lily. And I guess I should have gone back to the nursery, but I couldn't help but listen.

Sofia: I don't mind. It's not like I didn't know you were around.

Neil: It's interesting, but you don't-- you don't talk about your past that much.

Sofia: Well, there haven't been that many people I wanted to share all the details with.

Neil: It was kind of you to open up to Lily.

Sofia: (Sighs) Neil, I adore her. And anything I can do to help her through this, I will. I mean, I lost my father at a very critical time in my life, and someone stepped up to help me. And if they hadn't, I might have just lost it completely, so...

Neil: Looks like you did the same for Lily.

Chloe: Do you see where I'm standing?

Kevin: Uh, the couch.

Chloe: I am standing where Jana will not be standing every day in the future. And, oh, do you see this? Do you know what that is? That is a fridge-- the fridge that Jana will never, ever use ever again.

Kevin: Finally. Reality is penetrating that thick, beautiful skull of yours.

Chloe: Mm. And you know what this is?

Kevin: Hmm?

Chloe: This is the face that I get to kiss every day whenever I want.

Kevin: Mm. I like that.

Victoria: Wow. Hi, Jana. Oh, you seem, uh, you seem really excited.

Jana: (Laughs) I am. I-I, um, I hope you will be, too.

Billy: Yeah, um, after the first run of interviews, Jana here is head and shoulders above the rest.

Jana: What do you think? (Laughs)

Victoria: Uh, I... think that, uh, it--it would be great. I mean, we worked together before, and we had a lot of fun. (Chuckles)

Jana: Yes, and, you know, I-I could tell Lucy all about Mommy's work at the Newman Foundation, and--and how you-- you persuaded all those difficult artists to sell their work in Genoa City.

Victoria: And you were very reliable as my matron of honor.

Jana: Yes, well, uh, now I'd actually be the maid of honor.

Victoria: Oh. Oh, I'm s-- that's right. I mean, I-I did hear about your, um, situation.

Jana: No, I can assure you that that's all behind me now. I'm just so ready to have a fresh start and a new job, new place to live.

Billy: Mm-hmm.

Victoria: (Stammers)

Billy: Yeah, I meant to-- to--to talk to you about that. You know, I thought it would be useful to have the nanny nearby, so I was gonna show Jana the garage apartment.

Victoria: Oh, yeah, um, so you would be okay with that arrangement? I mean, that’s...

Jana: Yeah, absolutely.

Victoria: Oh.

Jana: You know, I-it's gonna be beneficial for all of us, really, 'cause you won't need to wait on me to get here if you have to dash off to a meeting or something, you know? Yeah.

Victoria: Yeah.

Billy: What do you think, Honey? Do we have a new nanny? Hmm? Hmm? Hmm?

Victoria: Well, let's see here. I kind of like the idea of a friend helping with Lucy. That's kind of nice. And, um, let's see, uh, I have a few things that I would need to discuss with you, uh, after Billy shows you the garage, but...

Billy: (Clears throat)

Victoria: You know what? If it all goes well, then... you have a job.

Jana: (Laughs) Okay. Okay.

Victoria: Okay. Mm, you know what? I think that--that Jana is just gonna be great with Lucy.

Billy: Yeah.

Victoria: Really. I really do. And that was a really good idea about having her stay in the garage apartment.

Billy: I know. I mean, she'll have her privacy. We'll have ours. We won't have to worry about her walking in on us baking any cookies.

Victoria: Right.

Billy: Right, anytime.

Victoria: Baking cookies.

Billy: Mm.

Victoria: Mm. I like the way you think.

Billy: Oh, wow.

Victoria: (Laughs)

Billy: (Chuckles) Okay, um, tell me about the arbitration.

Victoria: Oh, I completely forgot to tell you. It's-- you're not gonna believe this. So we're all sitting there, and Nick walks in, and instead of joining Dad and possibly torpedoing the entire lawsuit, he sat down next to us.

Billy: Get outta here.

Victoria: It's true. Abby and Nick and I are all for one and one for all in this lawsuit now.

Michael: Hello, Abby.

Abby: Michael. Shouldn't you be at a strategy meeting with my dad about the never-ending lawsuit?

Michael: (Sighs) I know this hasn't been easy for you.

Abby: Really? What gives it away? The untouched chocolate goodness in front of me, or the utterly thrilled look on my face?

Michael: Actually, I find it exceedingly curious that, uh, this lawsuit is something that you say you want, and yet you don't ever seem particularly comfortable in that room.

Abby: The experience hasn't been what I expected.

Michael: You seem especially sad today.

Abby: So what if I am?

Michael: I noticed it earlier during the, uh, arbitration. And then... suddenly, it dawned on me. I'm sorry. I'm very sorry. Today is the anniversary of Brad's death, isn't it?

Abby: Yeah.

Michael: That pain. That--it's the kind that sorta sneaks up on you when you least expect it. And the possibility of Victor turning his back on you and you losing another father figure in your life--that must be exceedingly difficult to deal with during this time.

Abby: Wow, um, listen, Michael, the rest of the world may view me as just another dumb blonde joke, but that's because I want them to see me that way. You, however, have obviously bought into that hype.

Michael: Have I?

Abby: You are trying to use my father's death to try to get me to second-guess this lawsuit. I can see right through you.

Michael: No. What I'm trying to do is point out to you that losing a parent forever is a terrible thing.

Nick: Should I clear out my desk?

Victor: I don't intend to fire you, Son. Our disagreement has nothing to do with the lawsuit.

Nick: What you're doing to Sharon is a perfect example of why you can't be trusted to protect the welfare of any member of this family. That is what this lawsuit is about.

Victor: I thought you and I were on the same page this morning.

Nick: We were till I realized what you were doing. You were going to let Sharon be prosecuted for a crime she did not commit.

Victor: I bailed her out. Nothing else I can do for her, all right?

Nick: Yes, there is. Tell the truth for once. Admit that you were lying. Admit that you were in Hawaii the night Skye died.

Victor: Want to talk about lies? You're willing to state on record that I mismanaged my own business, that I mismanaged Newman Enterprises and that I abuse my children's trust fund. Talk about immoral and unethical behavior. You're willing to lie for the sake of... revenge. "Judge not, lest ye be judged." Or does that not apply to you?

Sofia: I got us some goodies from Crimson Lights.

Lily: Oh, gosh, éclairs?

Sofia: Mm-hmm.

Lily: Oh, you're my new favorite person. I love those. (Chuckles)

Sofia: Mmm, they're so good.

Neil: Hey, Ladies, I've got a crisis at work. I'm gonna call Jordan and have him take care of it so I don't have to leave, all right?

Lily: No, Dad, go. I'm in good hands.

Sofia: Yeah.

Neil: I can see that.

Lily: (Chuckles) Okay, I'll see you later, okay?

Neil: Mm. Okay. All right, Baby.

Lily: And listen, thank you so much for coming to the graveyard with me today.

Neil: Lily, of course, and I love you very much, all right? I'll call you later.

Lily: Okay.

Babies: (Cry)

Sofia: Oh.

Lily: Oh, uh, it sounds like they're both up.

Sofia: Don't worry. I'll handle it. You stay here and rest.

Lily: No, I'm fine, but, you know, I could always use the extra pair of hands.

Sofia: Okay, you got it.

Lily: (Chuckles) Okay. All right, bye, Dad.

Neil: Bye.

Chloe: (Laughs) Uh-huh.

Kevin: I know.

Chloe: I know.

(Front door opens)

Chloe: Oh. What?

Jana: Oh, whoops. Sorry, I didn't know you'd still be here, Chloe. I'll just come back later to pack.

Kevin: Already?

Chloe: Already?

Jana: I found a new place to live. One of the perks of my new job.

Kevin: What new job?

Jana: I'm a nanny for Lucy Abbott. So I'm gonna be moving into Billy and Victoria's garage apartment.

Chloe: You're their nanny?

Jana: Yeah. It's wonderful, isn't it? (Sighs) Okay, well, I'll be back tomorrow. Bye.

Chloe: Bye. If she's not hanging around my man, she's hanging around my baby. She's never gonna go away.

Abby: Is that what's going on? Did my dad offer you a big bonus if you could get me to drop the suit?

Michael: Your father does not know that I'm speaking with you, and I know you didn't file the suit to hurt your father. You wanted your independence, and you wanted money for a TV show.

Abby: And I still want those things.

Michael: The cost might outweigh the gain.

Abby: Meaning?

Michael: What good is winning if you have no one to share it with?

Abby: What are you talking about? I have a lot of people in my corner.

Michael: Now you do. What happens when the case is settled? Victoria has her own agenda. Nick is in it for the revenge. (Sighs) Do you really think that after they've achieved their goals, they're gonna stick around and help you with what they refer to as "Your antics"? Victor may not have liked the whole idea of "The Naked Heiress," but--

Abby: (Stammers) Didn't like? He hated it.

Michael: But he is a part of your life. You might not have liked what he was saying to you, but he was there advising you. Did your siblings reach out to you? It's time for you to concentrate on the one relationship that's most important to you, and I know this. The relationship you have with Victor--

Abby: It's not gonna happen. I've already tried.

Michael: Abby, he hasn't written you off. There's still time to repair the damage that's been done to your relationship, but you have to do it before the lawsuit is settled. If you don't reach out to him now, you will lose the only father you have left.

Abby: Screw you, Michael.

Billy: I kind of thought you and Abby had a lock on this suit before, but with Nick joining, it's a slam dunk. Your dad's gonna finally get what he deserves.

Victoria: Mm... yeah. Maybe.

Billy: Oh, come on. A little optimism...

Victoria: (Sighs)

Billy: Never hurt anybody.

Victoria: I know. It's just that, uh, you know, Nick sort of joined this lawsuit awfully fast. What if he flip-flops on us?

Billy: Well, he was all up in arms about Pops before. Doesn't sound like he's gonna back down this time.

Victoria: Yeah, well, "Pops" can be very persuasive, and Nick has fallen for his rhetoric before. I hope this time is different.

Nick: I won't be lying. Victoria and I do not see eye to eye on every deal, Dubai in particular, but we do agree on some.

Victor: Such as?

Nick: Japan. The bribery. (Sighs) The shifting of funds for your personal use.

Victor: I have taken care of the bribery issue in Japan, and I've replaced the funds I used. It's a strategy I've used many times.

Nick: That is exactly the problem. You were not allowed to access our trust funds.

Victor: How do you think I built this company, huh? I use money to make more money. Business 101. Now you kids weren't complaining as long as the trust funds were growing. Now you want to nickel-and-dime me to death?

Nick: By law, we are entitled to know exactly what you are doing with our trusts. Now since you do everything behind our backs, this lawsuit was the only way to get an explanation from you.

Victor: If you continue with this lawsuit, I will be forced to take this company public. You know what that means? That means you and your sisters will get a share, a one-time settlement. That's it--one time. You will not participate in the future profits of this company. You'll have nothing to do with it! Instead of being able to brag about the fact that you defeated your father in court and won, your legacy will be that you destroyed Newman Enterprises as a family business! A business that I built with my own hands! You get a one-time share, and nothing more! That's what will happen if you continue with this lawsuit. The legacy for your children will be that you destroyed this company as a family business!

Victor: How's that?!

Next on "The Young and the Restless"...

Abby: My father is losing everything he cares about, and it's all my fault.

Nikki: Somebody has to have the sense to end this lawsuit.

Chloe: Well, whichever brother's in town, that's the one that you just glom onto, huh?
