[Door slams]

Phyllis: We need to talk.

Victor: What is this about?

Phyllis: This is about you rushing my recovery for your own selfish reasons. Do you know what I did?

Victor: I don't give a damn what you did.

Phyllis: I poisoned Kelly Andrews. I could have killed her.

Victor: If you have a problem with Kelly Andrews, then I suggest you go see Jack. You know while you were in a coma, he was playing around with her. I got you out of that coma so you could see what was going on.

Phyllis: You did not put me in Dr. Cutler's program out of concern. You wanted me to wake up so I could tell you about Sharon's secret. You did not care of rushing my recovery put me in danger!

Victor: You know, maybe you're right. Maybe Dr. Cutler's treatment caused you some mental anguish. Maybe it's a good idea if you went back into a coma.

Phyllis: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah! [Gasps]

Jack: I want you to keep an eye on things around here for the next couple of days. I need to focus on Phyllis.

Billy: Yeah, sure. What's going on?

Jack: She's not herself these days. She's -- there's been some erratic behavior, and I don't know what's causing it.

Billy: So, what are you planning to do?

Jack: I'm trying to find someone who specializes in traumatic brain injury and find out more about this treatment Victor arranged for her.

Billy: Yeah. Sure, Jack. Whatever you need.

Adam: Jack, I have this report. Uh...I can come back.

Jack: No, no. That's all right. Come on in.

Adam: Okay. Um, oh, hey, thanks again for last night. Appreciate that.

Jack: Last night?

Billy: Yeah. We ran in to Gabe and his girlfriend at the club last night.

Jack: I didn't realize you had a girlfriend, Gabe.

Nick: Hey, Chelsea.

Chelsea: Hi.

Nick: You, uh, working on your fall line?

Chelsea: Yep.

Nick: How's that going?

Chelsea: You mean regarding my new employee?

Nick: Yeah. Noah did tell me Sharon's working for you now.

Chelsea: Well, she's determined to prove that she can hold down a job while also caring for her daughter.

Nick: We'll see how that goes.

Chelsea: Look, Nick, I don't want to take sides. I just hope you both can work this out without hurting faith.

Nick: Well, Sharon's the one who's putting faith on the stand.

Chelsea: Well, she doesn't want to lose her kid, and as a mother, I can understand going to extreme measures to make sure that doesn't happen.

Nick: Still, forcing faith to testify that there was a woman walking around my living room half-dressed is going too far.

Chelsea: Well, if it's true --

Nick: It's not true. Sharon is determined to make this lie about me and Sage public, and she doesn't care who it hurts.

Abby: According to the marketing team, the name of our new fragrance that has the most traction is -- wait for it...

Ashley: Why do I want to wait for it? What is it?

Abby: ...Hex.

Ashley: I like it. It's like casting a spell. It's short. It's memorable. I think it works.

Abby: Great! Well, I will get the ball rolling to finalize it, and, in the meantime, our design team came up with some packaging ideas. I like this one the best.

Ashley: Do you think that's gonna appeal to a broad enough customer base?

Abby: Well, take a look at the other mock-ups.

[Doorbell buzzes]

Abby: I'm gonna go grab that.

Ashley: Okay.

Abby: Mom?

Victoria: You didn't have to walk us back here.

Stitch: Anytime. It gave me some more time with two of my favorite ladies.

Victoria: Oh, wow. You must be doing something right, Katherine. He can't get enough of us.

Stitch: Yeah, even though this little one wasn't laughing at any of my jokes.

Victoria: She is laughing. She's laughing on the inside.

Stitch: Yeah, that's usually how people laugh at my jokes -- on the inside -- either that or I put them to sleep.

Victoria: Well, I would love to stay here and listen to the rest of your stand-up routine for a sleeping baby, but I have to get Katherine to the nursery.

Stitch: Busy day?

Victoria: Well, you know Dad. He always seems to keep things interesting.

Stitch: Yeah.

Agent Reddick: I'm Agent Reddick. This is agent Brink.

Abby: From Environmental Security Bureau? What is he doing?

Agent Reddick: We have a court order to shut down your lab.

Ashley: "Unlawful use of an endangered tree root to manufacture a fragrance. Procurement a threat to the Central American rainforest"? There must be a misunderstanding. We are not using any tree root from the rainforest, I promise you, in any of our products.

Abby: This is an environmentally friendly lab.

Agent Reddick: We will seize all Jabot product samples and lab notes.

Abby: You can't do this! They can't do this, can they?

Ashley: They are doing it. And I know who's behind it. He's not getting away with it.

Christine: Glad you're here.

Paul: Oh, good. You got those case files I sent over.

Christine: Yeah. There's no file on Phyllis.

Paul: Well, that's because there isn't enough evidence to arrest Phyllis.

Christine: So, she just walks again?

Paul: Look, Chris, I know you've never gotten over the fact that Phyllis ran us over with her car.

Christine: Yeah. I hope you haven't, either.

Paul: Kelly Andrews has refused to help us with the investigation, and we have no proof that Phyllis poisoned her tea or that she was in possession of any antifreeze at all.

Christine: Okay, yeah. Everyone who owns a car is in possession of antifreeze. Have you questioned Phyllis?

Paul: What, you think she's gonna tell me she's guilty?

Christine: Yeah, okay. If you can't get a confession out of her, I will.

Paul: Chris, Chris, hold on a second. Come on, please. Look, getting upset like this is not good for the baby.

Christine: Don't do that. I can manage my pregnancy and my job.

Paul: Okay, fine. You be the D.A. Let me handle the police work. Okay?

Christine: Paul... nail her, or I will.

Jack: Very comprehensive report, Gabe. With all this time you're putting in on Chelsea's marketing campaign, I wouldn't think you'd have time for a girlfriend. Who is she? Anyone I know?

Adam: Her name is Sage.

Billy: Yeah. She seems really nice.

Adam: [Chuckles] You sound surprised.

Billy: Well, I guess she helped me see another side of you.

Adam: Ah.

Billy: Throw that in with your strong dislike of the mustache, and I'm starting to think that maybe I misjudged you, Gabe.

[Telephone rings]

Jack: Hey, ash. What's up?

Ashley: We've got a problem, Jack. Two agents from the environmental security bureau were in the lab. They just left.

Jack: They just left? What did they want?

Ashley: To shut us down.

Jack: Why didn't you call me sooner?

Ashley: They wouldn't let me use the phone until they'd finished. I haven't even called the attorneys yet. They have confiscated all the files, all the samples from my new fragrance. Somebody's trying to sabotage the launch of our new product.

Jack: Okay. Calm down, okay?

Ashley: I'm trying to calm down, Jack, but I have worked for over a year on this. Do you realize that? And this is my best shot at getting back my title as co-C.E.O., a title I never should have lost. He's not getting away with this.

Jack: I'm on my way, all right?

Billy: That didn't sound good.

Jack: Someone sicced the E.S.B. on us, and Ashley's beside herself.

Billy: You want me to go talk to her?

Jack: Would you do that? I'm gonna try to make a few phone calls -- see what I can find out. Gabe.

Adam: Hmm?

Jack: Stick around.

Abby: Where are you going?

Ashley: To take back what's mine.

Victor: I trust you were successful?

Agent Reddick: We are even, Mr. Newman.

Victor: So, you're sure this is the fragrance that Ashley Abbott was working on?

Agent Reddick: I'd stake my reputation on it.

Victor: Your reputation ain't gonna be worth much after this, but thank you for your sentiment. All right. You may go now. Hmm.

Nick: You know, if Sharon thinks this is gonna make me back off, it's not. Oh, hey, Sage. I didn't see you come down.

Sage: I'm sorry. I didn't -- thank you.

Nick: Sure.

Sage: I didn't mean to eavesdrop.

Nick: No, no, no. We were just talking about the, uh, custody hearing.

Sage: Yeah, I heard. I am so sorry if I caused any problems for you.

Nick: No, it's not your fault. It's Sharon using faith's imagination to try and hurt my case. I'm sorry if you got caught in the middle.

Chelsea: Um, I'm sorry. I didn't realize that you two knew each other. It's funny you never mentioned it last night when we were having drinks.

Sage: Nick and I are just friends. There's nothing really more to tell than that.

Nick: Yeah, except for that whole "saving my life" thing.

Sage: [Laughing] Oh, God.

Nick: [Chuckles]

Sage: Yes, that.

Nick: Yeah.

Sage: Rescue a guy from a bear trap once, he never forgets, right, Chelsea?

Chelsea: A bear trap? Is that for real?

Nick: Oh, it was real.

Sage: Yep.

Nick: And the pain was superreal.

Sage: Mnh.

Nick: But I was in very good hands.

Chelsea: So, faith saw you two at your house acting like this?

Nick: Yeah.

Chelsea: Oh. Okay. It's just 'cause I can understand how maybe she would misconstrue what it is that she saw. That's all.

Sage: No, it's not. We're just friends, like I said.

Chelsea: Well, I'm sure your boyfriend will be happy to hear that. Make sure you tell Gabriel I say hello. See ya.

Nick: Bye. Oh, um... Gabriel's your boyfriend?

Sage: Mnh, no. [Clears throat]

Nick: No? But you were having drinks with Billy and Chelsea last night.

Sage: We were having dinner here, and Chelsea and Billy were sitting there. We saw them, and they asked us to join them.

Nick: So, you were on a date?

Sage: [Chuckles nervously] Not exactly.

Nick: So, not a date, and he's not your boyfriend? [Chuckles] What exactly is Gabriel to you?

Sage: My husband.

Nick: Okay. You are married to Gabe?

Sage: It's not what you think.

Nick: If you know what I'm thinking, you're way ahead of me.

Sage: We aren't in love -- with each other.

Nick: So, is it like a green-card kind of thing?

Sage: No, uh, but it's, um, a marriage of convenience.

Nick: Hmm. Loveless marriages tend to strike me as being inconvenient.

Sage: Constance willed her estate to Gabriel with the provision that he be married in order to receive his inheritance.

Nick: Okay. So, the old lady felt like Gabe needed a stable influence in his life or he would blow through that money real quick.

Sage: Constance loved Gabriel, but she knew that he was, you know, reckless.

Nick: So, to put her mind at ease and to help your friend Gabe out, you agreed to marry him?

Sage: Yeah. Yes.

Nick: Why keep that a secret?

Sage: So we can both be free.

Nick: Free to do what?

Sage: Have a relationship with someone we really care about.

Phyllis: [Gasps] Paul!

Paul: I didn't mean to startle you.

Phyllis: I didn't even hear you. How'd you get in?

Paul: Uh, Mrs. Martinez let me in.

Phyllis: Well, I'll have to talk to her about that.

Paul: Mm-hmm.

Phyllis: So, what brings you by? Is this a personal visit or professional?

Paul: Well, I guess that depends on how you answer my questions.

Jack: I'm gonna need a scorecard pretty soon to keep track of all your lies. First you want me to keep your identity secret so you can win Chelsea back. Now you have a girlfriend?

Adam: Sage is the woman I told you about. She helped me after the accident.

Jack: Oh, helped you steal another man's life.

Adam: She arranged my surgeries, nursed me back to health. She convinced Constance that I was her grandson, and then she taught me everything I needed to know about being Gabriel.

Jack: You left out the fact that you're dating.

Adam: It's a ruse to convince Chelsea I'm not some crazy, sick stalker.

Jack: You really think that's gonna work?

Adam: It's already working. We had drinks with Billy and Chelsea last night.

Jack: Oh, yeah. Two couples just hanging out?

Adam: Yeah, yeah. By the end of the evening, they both felt much more comfortable around me. Of course, it also helped that Billy and I were able to bond over our mutual hatred of my father.

Jack: How convenient that Gabriel also despises Victor.

Adam: Sometimes things just fall into your lap.

Jack: You're playing a dangerous game, Adam.

Adam: It's Gabriel, and it's a game that I'm winning. I've already put Chelsea at ease. Now all I have to do is get her to fall in love with me.

Jack: You're so sure you can make that happen?

Adam: Yeah. Why wouldn't I be? It happened before. It'll happen again.

Jack: Because she's in love with my brother now.

Adam: She thinks she's in love with your brother. When he goes back to Victoria -- which he will, by the way, and we both know that -- she'll realize that I'm the man for her.

Ashley: I know that you were behind that phony raid in the lab at Jabot, which means that you have at least one E.S.B. Agent in your pocket. Now, where is it?

Victor: Where's what?

Ashley: The sample of the formula that I've been working on for over a year, and don't tell me that you don't have it.

Victor: Now, didn't we go over this last time you were here?

Ashley: You were playing me.

Victor: I wasn't playing you. I was being very honest with you. I told you that I was very curious about the compound you were using to create your exotic fragrance. But I wasn't very successful in finding out.

Ashley: So you stole it! Corporate espionage, patent infringement -- those are very serious offenses, Victor.

Victor: I would be insulted if this weren't as absurd as it is.

Ashley: You know damn well that I was on the verge of creating something revolutionary. You know it damn well.

Victor: And, for your information, we here at Newman-chancellor were developing an organic compound without the endangered tree root from the Amazon region, and we were successful. Here it is.

Ashley: That's my fragrance.

Victor: Well... but this one... is environmentally safe and, therefore, will get approval by the government very quickly.

Ashley: You know damn well that I wasn't using any tree root from central America. You know that.

Victor: Oh, really? So, you were lying to me, weren't you? In other words, the E.S.B. Agents now think that the lies you spread... are fact. Not good.

Ashley: Give me back my sample.

Victor: This fragrance in here was developed at Newman-chancellor. Tell her, Victoria. Tell her.

Victoria: Dad...

Ashley: Victoria... you and I both have very strong men in our lives -- men that want us to play by their rules. For you, it's your father. For me, it's my brother.

Victor: Sweetheart, Jack Abbott may be holding Ashley back, but I've all the confidence in you.

Ashley: As long as you do things his way. You know Jack's the same way. I mean, I have every right to be co-C.E.O. Of Jabot, but he's not gonna give me that title -- not until I prove myself... which I'm determined to do, just like you're determined to prove yourself to your father because you want the power and the authority that you deserve, just like I do. We could be just as successful as these men, Victoria, without compromising our integrity. All we have to do is respect each other. Please just respect me and tell me the truth.

Victor: Victoria, this is not some support group. This is business -- family business.

Victoria: We have been developing a new fragrance here at Newman-chancellor for a while, and we plan to release it at the relaunch of brash & sassy.

Ashley: You deserve each other.

Victoria: Ashley...

Ashley: You made your choice, Victoria. For you, this isn't over.

Victor: You have a nice day.

Ashley: Screw you.

[Door slams]

Victor: You did the right thing, sweetheart.

Victoria: Did you steal this from Jabot?

Victor: Listen to me. You asked me to find a way to save the chancellor division of Newman-Chancellor, okay? If what is in this vial will prove to be as successful as I think it will, there will be an enormous influx of cash, and we can save Katherine's company.

Victoria: At what cost, Dad?

Billy: Do we know who called the E.S.B. on us?

Abby: Well, Mom seemed to have a pretty good idea, the way she tore out of here.

Billy: Any idea who she has in her sights?

Abby: Mnh, no.

Stitch: What the hell is going on?

Billy: Someone anonymously tipped off the E.S.B. -- said that we were using an endangered central American tree root in our new fragrance.

Stitch: Where the hell would they get a crazy idea like that? Oh, you guys think that I'm the one that --

[Rattle chimes]

Billy: What you got there, stitch?

Stitch: It's Katie's. I ran in to Victoria in the park. I didn't realize I was still holding it until after I left Newman-chancellor. Okay, you got me. I steal corporate secrets and toys from babies. Here. Why don't you return this to Katie, since, apparently, you're the only one who can be trusted around her mother?

Abby: Dad just told Mom that they've been working on an organic fragrance for months.

Billy: [Chuckles] Yeah. Of course, they have.

Stitch: What did you expect him to say?

Billy: Well, stupid me -- I thought that maybe Victoria would be a positive influence on him, but, clearly, he's got her doing his dirty work for him.

Stitch: Vicki doesn't have anything to do with this.

Abby: Well, Mom said Victoria's backing up Dad's claims.

Stitch: What?!

Billy: So, in all your little strolls in the park, Victoria didn't happen to mention a new fragrance they're developing, did she?

Stitch: No, but I'm damn well gonna get some answers.

Abby: Hmm. Trouble in paradise?

[Rattle chimes]

Jack: You can't come back after all this time and expect things to stay the same. Things change. People change.

Adam: Hmm. So, are we talking about me now, or are we talking about you and Phyllis? No, no. You're right, though. Some things do change, right> I mean, who would have ever thought that Phyllis and I would have something in common?

Jack: At least I can help Phyllis with her new life.

Adam: Yeah? A Phyllis that listens? Well, that's definitely new. But you two are still together, right? So, that hasn't changed.

Jack: Neither, apparently, has your inability to accept good advice when it's given to you.

Adam: Jack, I want the same thing that you want. I want a life with the woman that I love -- that's all.

Jack: Adam Newman forfeited that right. You know what? Get to the lab. Help Billy with this crisis if you can. I assume the two of you can work together.

Adam: Work together? I'm keeping him out of prison for trying to kill me. I'd say that's proof that I can cooperate. Wouldn't you? Was it something I said? [Sighs] Get me the lab, please.

Chelsea: Jack, I -- oh.

Adam: You know, you're really gonna have to stop stalking me.

Chelsea: I guess I had that coming, after accusing you of crowding me.

Adam: Nah, look, I don't blame you at all. I tend to come on a little strong, especially when I want something.

Chelsea: Ah? And what is it you're after?

Adam: Well, I'm after the same thing every guy's after.

Chelsea: Tickets to the super bowl?

Adam: Obviously, yes. [Chuckles] But, uh, that's -- that's not why I came by your office.

Chelsea: So, why did you?

Adam: Um, well, I wanted to show Jack that I was serious about my job -- prove to him that it wasn't a mistake hiring me.

Chelsea: And Billy?

Adam: Yeah. Um, it's come to my attention that he's not my biggest fan.

Chelsea: He's coming around, actually.

Adam: Yeah?

Chelsea: Yeah. Your girlfriend has kind of brought him over to your side. And seeing you through Sage's eyes has helped me understand you better, too.

Adam: Yeah?

Chelsea: Mm-hmm.

Adam: All right. Was I really that bad, though?

Chelsea: No. No, no, no. I didn't mean it like that. I just --

Adam: I think I know what you meant.

Chelsea: [Laughs]

Adam: [Chuckles] Um, sometimes a woman brings out the best in a guy, right? Change him in ways he never thought were possible... leads him towards the good side, away from the careless, reckless, selfish things that have taken over his life. You know, you wouldn't think that one person could have that kind of impact on another, but when it happens...

Chelsea: It's pretty amazing.

Adam: Pretty amazing, yeah. Isn't it?

Chelsea: [Clears throat] Hang on to that, you know. Don't -- don't [Clears throat] Let it slip away.

Adam: Uh, did I say something?

Chelsea: No. I'm s-- no. You just -- you reminded me of someone I-I knew. It's a real gift what you have with her. Don't, uh -- don't take it for granted.

Adam: I won't.

Chelsea: Cool. Well, um, I should get going.

Adam: I will, uh, see you soon.

Chelsea: Not too soon.

Nick: What, you don't want to have a drink with me?

Sage: No. [Laughs] No. I just thought that, you know...

Nick: Thought...

Sage: That I --

Nick: ...What?

Sage: Well, I told you I'm in an arranged marriage, so [Chuckling] I mean...

Nick: Hey, I think it's pretty cool what you did for Gabe, and I'm not surprised.

Sage: What do you mean?

Nick: Well, you always seem to be helping people out.

Sage: You make me sound like I'm a saint or something.

Nick: Well, you took care of Constance in her later years. You married Gabe so he could get his inheritance. You pulled this really cool guy out of a bear trap.

Sage: [Laughs] Well, I was really happy to do all of those things.

Nick: Oh, all these random acts of kindness?

Sage: Mm-hmm.

Nick: What about you?

Sage: What do you mean?

Nick: Well, do you do anything for yourself?

Victoria: Ben. What are you doing back here?

Stitch: Don't try to stop me, Victoria. I came to speak to your dad.

Victoria: Whoa. Hold on a second. You're upset. Just talk to me. This is -- this is my company, too.

Stitch: Ashley told us about the new breakthrough product Brash & Sassy's about to put out -- the one that you supposedly have been working on for months.

Victoria: No, I can explain.

Stitch: You haven't been working on anything. That raid on our lab was a fake. It was a setup so that Newman-chancellor could steal our formula!

Victoria: Shh. Shh. Okay. Let's just go somewhere where we can talk.

Stitch: What is there to talk about? Your dad hijacked my future.

Victoria: This is business. It's not personal.

Stitch: This wasn't just a job for me. It was a chance to start a new life for myself, for us. That's gone now.

Victoria: No. It doesn't have to be gone. We could still build a life together, just like the one that you talked about in the park.

Stitch: Yeah. The one you wanted, too?

Victoria: I do.

Stitch: Maybe you did, but you were forced to choose -- me or your father. You chose your father.

Paul: So, what happened to your hand?

Phyllis: I cut it.

Paul: Do you mind if I ask how?

Phyllis: I lost my temper, broke a vase. Very expensive tantrum.

Paul: [Chuckles] So, what made you so angry?

Phyllis: I couldn't get people to believe me that I had nothing to do with harassing Kelly Andrews -- even the people closest to me. They think I just wanted to...

Paul: Harm her? Is that when you, uh, put the antifreeze in her tea?

Phyllis: Right. Did you think it was gonna be that easy, Paul?

Paul: Phyllis, I'm just trying to figure out what happened here and why. That way I can explain to the D.A. You just weren't yourself.

Phyllis: Well, that's not gonna make a damn bit of difference, because the D.A., Your wife, hates me.

Paul: No.

Phyllis: Yes, and I bet she'll be very happy to pin this on me.

Paul: Look... she's just trying to do her job. That's all.

Phyllis: She wants me locked up. She does not care that I have already lost a year of my life. I cannot spend any more time away from the people I love, okay?

Paul: Look, Phyllis, I want to help you, but I can't do that when you're not being honest with me.

Phyllis: [Scoffs] I have been lied to so much since I've been back. I don't know who I can trust.

Paul: Well, you can trust me, but you're going to have to tell me the truth. You're gonna have to tell me everything.

Paul: So, tell me what happened between you and Kelly.

Phyllis: I wanted to let her know that she wasn't going to get away with making me look like a jealous psychopath.

Paul: And did you?

Phyllis: She suggested we sit down and discuss things civilly over tea.

Paul: And you agreed?

Phyllis: Reluctantly.

Paul: Then what happened?

Phyllis: Then we talked -- or at least tried to. And then, at some point, Kelly got up and left the table.

Paul: And that's when you poisoned her tea?

Jack: Don't say another word.

Paul: Look, Jack, we're just talking.

Jack: Really? Kind of seemed like the chief of police was trying to get a confession out of someone who didn't have an attorney present.

Paul: Look, if she doesn't talk to me, she's going to have to --

Jack: She'll face your wife on the stand, yes, and we both know how Christine feels about Phyllis, but we also both know that without Kelly's testimony, without any further evidence against Phyllis, you can't press charges.

Paul: We'll see. Jack. Phyllis.

Phyllis: What is happening? First Sharon, then Kelly, now Christine? It's like they want to keep me away from you.

Jack: I won't let them. I promise.

Sage: I got it. I had a foot massage last week. That's something that I did all for myself.

Nick: Not good enough.

Sage: [Laughs]

Nick: I'll tell you what -- I'm gonna get you an entire day at the spa on me.

Sage: You don't have to do that.

Nick: Well, you deserve it.

Sage: Mm. I'm not as selfless as you think.

Adam: Hey. Sorry to keep you waiting. Mwah! Thank you for keeping my girlfriend company. I appreciate it.

Nick: Mm-hmm.

Adam: Whew!

Nick: And just so you know, I'm okay with the...arrangement.

Adam: The arrangement?

Nick: Yeah. Sage filled me in on everything. Good old bingo. You just never change. There's always a beautiful woman to bail you out. I just hope he knows what a lucky guy he is. See you, bingo.

Adam: Yeah. What the hell was that?

Sage: He knows.

Adam: He knows what?

Sage: Ahh. I told him we were married.

Adam: You did what?

Billy: Well, you can tell your boss that we'll be filing an official complaint. Yeah. Yeah. [Sarcastically] You have a nice day, too.

Ashley: Has anybody seen Ben? I have a few questions for him.

Billy: I'm pretty sure we've covered all of them.

Ashley: Stitch swears he knows nothing about a new fragrance that Victoria's been working on.

Ashley: Do you think he's telling the truth?

Abby: As much as I hate to say it, yes. I think he's telling the truth.

Ashley: I want to believe him.

Billy: Yeah, 'cause he's always been such an honest guy. Oh, come on. He lied to protect his mom. Who's to say he wouldn't do the same thing for Victoria?

Abby: Well, who does she need protection from?

Billy: Only Victor. Look, I'm gonna check in with legal. You guys text me if there's anything else I need to know.

Ashley: Okay. I tell you, if Victoria's being forced to choose between Ben and her father, I actually feel sorry for Ben.

Abby: Yes, because we both know with us Newmans, blood is thicker than love.

Victoria: I know that this looks bad, okay?

Stitch: [Scoffs] Yeah. You mean your dad stealing my formula that I've been working on for months and you backing him up that it was developed here? Yeah, that looks kind of bad.

Victoria: It's just that my dad likes to bend the rules a little bit when it comes to business. That's all.

Stitch: Come on. Everybody knows that. But I didn't expect this from you. You were just telling me how frustrated you were that your dad doesn't take you seriously, and now you're lying for him?

Victoria: For you, it's very simple, but for me, it's really, really complicated.

Stitch: Oh, it's complicated for me, too... 'cause I love you, Victoria, but this -- this isn't you. You're better than this.

Victoria: Ben... [Sighs]

[Door slams]

Victoria: Do you have any idea what you've done?

Victor: What's the matter, sweetheart?

Victoria: I just lied to the man that I love.

Victor: Oh?

Victoria: For what -- a vial of perfume? A greater profit margin? The chance to one-up Jack? Dad, it's not our product!

Victor: You're making what is business personal.

Victoria: I am sick of hearing that!

Victor: Okay. Now let me teach you a lesson, okay? If you want to function in the corporate world, you'd better play by its rules. Espionage is part of it, whether you like it or not! It's a dirty fact of business! Do you honestly think that I've built this empire -- this damn empire -- without stepping on a few toes?!

Victoria: Well, if this is how we do business, then count me out. I don't want any part of it.

Billy: Shocker.

Chelsea: My hero!

Billy: Well, that's one fire out in the lab, and --

Chelsea: My hero!

Billy: Well, there wasn't an actual fire, mind you.

Chelsea: Are you saying you didn't deserve that kiss?

Billy: Probably not, but I don't want to discourage that sort of thing, so... what are you doing here?

Chelsea: I came to see Jack, and I actually bumped in to Gabe.

Billy: Shocker.

Chelsea: He was very sweet. He was talking about Sage and how much she means to him. I didn't realize how close he felt to her.

Billy: The closer, the better, as far as I'm concerned.

Chelsea: Well, I'm not really sure she feels the same way.

Billy: Seemed pretty chummy at dinner last night.

Chelsea: I thought so, too, but, um, I just saw her with Nick earlier, and let's just say she seemed even chummier with him.

Adam: What in the hell were you thinking, telling my brother that we were married?

Sage: So, it's okay for you to tell Chelsea and Billy that we're dating but I can't tell Nick the truth?

Adam: You know exactly why I told Chelsea that you were my girlfriend.

Sage: So she wouldn't think you're a creepy stalker so you could get closer to her.

Adam: Well, it was working.

Sage: Not for me.

Adam: Okay. Okay. Explain something to me. My brother thinking that you're married -- how does that improve your chances with him?

Sage: I told him the truth -- that I did his pal bingo a favor by marrying him so he could collect his inheritance.

Adam: That's, you know, terrific. So, what happens when my sanctimonious brother goes to Chelsea and tells her the truth about our marriage? What happens then?

Sage: I don't know. Maybe she'll think that you're a deceitful, manipulative jerk.

Adam: You think I don't know what you're doing? You did this on purpose. You're trying to wreck things between Chelsea and me because I made it harder for you to be with Nick.

Sage: You can think whatever you want.

Adam: Hey, what did I tell you about crossing me, hmm?

Ashley: He's still not answering.

Stitch: Looking for me?

Ashley: Yes.

Stitch: Go ahead. Ask.

Ashley: Abby told me what you said.

Stitch: I had as much to lose as you did, Ashley. Even if I didn't, I wouldn't betray you -- not after you gave me a chance to start over.

Ashley: I know you wouldn't.

Abby: Well, someone told Dad the information you fed him about using endangered plants was bull. I mean, how else would he have known to use it to set up a fake bust?

Ashley: You know, from the way Victor was talking, it's as if he was standing right here when I told you that the tree-root story was a lie. [Gasps] Bastard.

Phyllis: Do you think I'm crazy?

Jack: No crazier than you've ever been.

Phyllis: Paul thinks I tried to kill Kelly.

Jack: Listen to me. There is no way you are going to be punished for what happened to Kelly.

Phyllis: Christine is not gonna let this go, Jack.

Jack: You are not the guilty party.

Phyllis: Do you believe I tried to poison Kelly?

Jack: Whatever happened, it is not your fault. Victor subjected you to experimental treatment without permission. He knew there were potential side effects, and he went ahead. If anyone is to blame here, it is Victor, and he is going to pay. I will see to that.

Victor: Sweetheart, you understand as well as I do that sometimes in business, one has to make difficult decisions. You just made one. And if Ben is as close to you as you say he is, then he'll understand.

Victoria: That's great, Dad. Maybe he will. But I won't.

Victor: You'll change your mind fast once the profits from this new fragrance start rolling in.

Victoria: You're not listening to me. I can't work like this. I can't live like this. And I'm not gonna allow my children to live like this, either, including Katherine.

Victor: What are you saying?

Victoria: I'm saying if this is how things are gonna be, then she's not gonna be a part of your life, Dad. I'll raise her as an Abbott. As a matter of fact, that's exactly how she'll be christened.

Victor: You don't mean that.

Victoria: I do mean that. Everyone's gonna be there tomorrow to welcome Katherine rose Abbott into the family, Dad -- everyone but you.

Victor: You can't be serious.

Victoria: I am very serious. Give Ashley back her sample, call off the E.S.B., or this little vial here will be the only legacy that you ever have.

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

Avery: I will do anything to get this man's confession on tape and out of my life.

Kevin: A real creeper, huh? Who is he?

Avery: My ex-husband.

Victoria: Dad, what are you doing here?

Victor: I came for my granddaughter's christening. Any objections?
