Episode # 10813 ~ Ashley puts the cards on the table with Victor; Noah fights dirty; Adam shares a secret with Jack.

Provided By Suzanne

Adam: Jack, I convinced my father to take up his differences with you in court. Now, he loved the idea of having the law on his side. He loved the idea of watching Jabot suffer tremendous financial loss and public humiliation.

Jack: I'm sure he did.

Adam: Here's what he didn't know. I built in an exit strategy for you.

Chelsea: And what was that?

Adam: It's very simple. You cut Billy loose. You let him take the fall.

Chelsea: What are you saying?

Adam: It's not like that, sweetheart. It's just business.

Chelsea: It's -- it's wrong. All of it. After everything jack's done for you, you would advise Victor to sue his family for everything they have?

Adam: Hold on a second. This is much better than letting my father use Santori money to go after the Abbotts. Jack, he's gonna blindside you guys. You won't even see it coming. You know that, right?

Chelsea: So you're expecting Jack to dodge a lawsuit by blaming Billy for paragon?

Adam: Blaming? Billy did it. He's guilty, sweetheart. He reignited paragon. Jack, this is a good idea, man.

Jack: Okay, I want you to listen to me very closely, because I want you to quote me verbatim when you report back to your father. I am not going to run and hide while Victor wages war on my brother.

Adam: Then you're all gonna lose.

Billy: So you agree that the best course of action is to hang me out to dry?

Phyllis: Well, I think when you're right, you're right. It's in everybody's best interest to let you take the fall for using paragon to siphon off the Newman entities.

Billy: It would appease the mustache and keep Jabot solvent.

Phyllis: But what would it do to you?

Billy: Oh, I don't need to be connected to the family business to be happy. You know, I can start another magazine, buy a bar, win a restaurant in a poker game.

Phyllis: Only one problem with that.

Billy: What's that? My businesses never last?

Phyllis: Jack would never do that to you.

Billy: Well, I wouldn't give him a choice. It's the smart move.

Phyllis: Jack would never sacrifice his brother to avoid a fight with Victor. My husband just isn't that kind of person.

Ashley: I'm glad you could come by.

Victor: How could I possibly have stayed away? Your summons was quite interesting.

Ashley: But not unexpected, I'm sure.

Victor: That remains to be seen. What would you like to discuss?

Ashley: Let's make a deal.

Kevin: Marisa's daughter is enrolled in a super-exclusive school in Majorca.

Noah: That's not possible.

Kevin: I checked. I double-checked. Her classmates are the children of diplomats and celebrities.

Mariah: Ka-ching, ka-ching.

Kevin: Yeah, isn't she supposed to be with some poor family living a life of hard knocks?

Noah: Mm-hmm.

Mariah: Someone's got to be lying.

Noah: Yeah.


Luca: Marisa, we must go.

Marisa: I, um... I, uh, like your teddy bear. Bet he's been with you since you were born. It's why he looks so loved. Is he your favorite?

Eva: Yes. My mommy gave him to me.

Marisa: [Sobs]

Eva: Why are you crying?

Marisa: I've waited a long time for this. It's so nice to meet you.

Eva: My name's Eva.

Marisa: That's a nice name.

Eva: Who are you?

Carmen: Eva.

Eva: Mama!

Marisa: [Sighs] She's so beautiful.

Luca: Like her mother.

Marisa: What happens now?

Luca: That's up to you.

Adam: Give it some thought, Jack.

Jack: No thought necessary.

Adam: You've been cleaning up Billy's messes for years.

Jack: He's my brother!

Adam: And there comes a point in a man's life when you stand up and you suffer the consequences of your actions. That point in time for Billy is now!

Chelsea: No, this wasn't all Billy's doing. I mean, Phyllis was in on it, as well.

Adam: That's a good point. That's all the more reason for you to go along with the plan.

Chelsea: Why? If Billy wasn't solely responsible, then --

Adam: Billy was solely responsible for getting Phyllis involved.

Jack: Phyllis was a very willing participant. But I am sure that Billy drove this whole thing, yes.

Adam: Okay, and you're not the least bit angry? You're not upset just a little bit?

Jack: Oh, I'm angry. I almost put a fist through my brother's face. But I am not turning him over to Victor Newman!

Adam: Why don't you consider the rest of your family members? Why don't you do that? Something Billy didn't do when he reignited paragon, went after Newman.

Jack: No, maybe he was just thinking about his daughter.

Adam: Yeah.

Chelsea: That's not fair, Jack.

Adam: It's true, you know, right? Everything always comes back to Delia for him. Everything.

Jack: You know what Billy went through. You know what he lost. How can you ask me to betray my brother to save my company?

Adam: I'm trying to protect you, Jack. This is a huge breach of trust on my part, too. Do you have any idea what my father would do if he found out I was --

Jack: Why are you telling me?

Adam: Because I know the way his brain works! He's gonna see this lawsuit as him getting his pound of flesh, and it'll be over! You stand in his way, you know what he's gonna do? He's gonna come after Jabot! He's not gonna stop until it's bankrupt! And then he's gonna go after you! He's gonna go after your entire family! You think I'm just talking financial here? He's gonna destroy every single one of you. You know what I'm talking about, don't you?

Jack: You bet I know.

Adam: Jack. Ashley's name's on the door -- C.E.O. I don't care. You know this lands in your lap, right? It is your job to protect your company. It's your job to protect your family.

Jack: And that's exactly what I'm gonna do, Adam.

Adam: Good.

Jack: 'Cause this is how my mind works. My father built Jabot... so that his children would have a professional home, a place, a legacy. I am going to preserve that legacy... for every one of John Abbott's children.

Adam: Can't talk to that man. I mean, I can't talk to him. [Chuckles]

Chelsea: Do you really hate Billy that much? That you would actually try to turn his own brother against him?

Victor: Well, I'm glad to hear that one of the Abbotts has some business savvy. What are you willing to offer?

Ashley: You realize that the only thing I should be offering you is an escort out of the building, because Jack told me everything. About Marco. What you did. What you inflicted on Jack and Phyllis. I mean, you know what? You should actually be behind bars right now.

Victor: Really?

Ashley: Absolutely. I mean, how can you possibly defend what you did?

Victor: I wonder how your good friend stitch would react to what you're saying now.

Ashley: I'm not following.

Victor: You aren't?

Ashley: Do you have something to say to me? Please just say it.

Victor: I wonder how he would feel if he learned that Jack was responsible for his sister Kelly's death.

Ashley: What?

Victor: I guess Jack failed to tell you that, didn't he? I'm sure he also didn't tell you about that boat explosion that killed a lot of people.

Ashley: A boat explosion?

Victor: Yes. The explosion of a cargo ship. He and Marisa were on that ship. A lot of sailors -- fathers and sons -- innocent people who died in that explosion.

Ashley: No, Jack would never do something like that.

Victor: Yes, he would, and he did. Your brother has a lot of blood on his hands. And I'm sure you wouldn't want him to be held accountable for that, now, would you? So, shall we talk business?

Marisa: She's so cute and -- and polite and smart.

[Door closes]

Marisa: The way she spoke. Did you hear she asked my name? The light in her eyes.

Luca: Your eyes. She's gonna be a heartbreaker. [Chuckles]

Marisa: She is. She's...

[Cell phone rings]

Marisa: Noah. I, uh, I just met my daughter. She's the most precious, exquisite little girl.

Noah: That's -- that's great. Marisa, that's great. Um, listen, Lu-Luca has been lying to you. Something about the story about Eva -- it doesn't add up.

Marisa: What do you mean?

Noah: The girl, your daughter -- she goes to one of the most expensive and prestigious schools in Spain. She's not from some poor, abusive family. Marisa, did you hear me? Is that what it seemed like to you? Did she seem like she was in some kind of trouble?

Luca: What is it?

Noah: Are you with Luca right now?

Marisa: Yes.

Noah: Marisa, you need to get away from him as fast as possible. He has been lying to you about everything. Marisa. [Sighs]

Mariah: What'd she say?

Noah: I don't know. The call dropped or she hung up. She was with Luca. Hey, Kevin? I need one more favor from you.

Kevin: Dirt on Luca's family. Hmm.

Noah: What's wrong?

Kevin: I'm hitting some walls.

Noah: Well, just find me whatever you can find, Kevin. Please hurry.

Mariah: What is this going to accomplish?

Noah: I just want to know who I'm dealing with.

Mariah: What are you gonna do with the information once you get it? I mean, so what if he has a bad credit score or his real name is Irving.

Kevin: Holy shiitake.

Noah: What's up? What did you find?

Kevin: Luca's family has been the target of multiple investigations into illegal activities.

Noah: What kind of illegal activities?

Kevin: Uh, market manipulation, political payoffs.

Mariah: Well, that's not exactly "holy shiitake" worthy.

Kevin: How about illegal arms dealing?

Noah: Whoa.

Mariah: Seriously?

Kevin: Yeah, the Santoris are involved in some serious black-market stuff.

Noah: What -- what about Luca? Is Luca's name on there? Has he been convicted of anything?

Kevin: Authorities couldn't make charges against any of these guys stick.

Mariah: Maybe they're innocent.

Kevin: Witnesses recanted. Others went missing.

Mariah: Oh, my God. That's scary.

Kevin: Some judges and prosecutors felt the same way. Several cases were withdrawn when prosecuting officials had a sudden change of heart.

Noah: Wow. Kevin, can -- can you send this to my phone?

Kevin: Sure. But are you sure?

Mariah: Noah, these are not people that you want to mess with.

Adam: I'm doing everything I can to protect Jack. I'm trying everything I can to try to bring this to some sort of bloodless, peaceful resolution.

Chelsea: While making Billy the scapegoat.

Adam: No, no, no, it's not like that.

Chelsea: I heard you. You think Billy is dispensable in all of this. I just don't understand. Why? Are you still harboring some resentment towards him?

Adam: No, of course not.

Chelsea: Are you sure? You know, when you were watching him play father to Connor, that didn't bother you?

Adam: Of course that bothered me. Don't be ridiculous.

Chelsea: So then why are you denying it?

Adam: Because any resentment or jealousy I feel toward Billy is trumped by guilt. I'm responsible for him losing his little girl.

Chelsea: [Sighs]

Adam: It's not personal.

Chelsea: Babe, it's personal to me. I lived with him. I-I almost married him.

Adam: You know, we don't need to rehash the whole --

Chelsea: We were close in the same way, you know, you and sage were close.

Adam: Okay, look, that's completely different.

Chelsea: Why? Because she insists she wasn't really in love for you?

Adam: Yeah, for one. Yeah.

Chelsea: But you were more than friends. I mean, you and sage -- you shared something significant.

Adam: Yeah.

Chelsea: So then how would you feel if I just cavalierly threw sage to the wolves?

Adam: Billy brought this on himself.

Chelsea: That's not even remotely true. You know what he's been through with Victor through the years. Billy is not the bad guy here. Your father is.

Adam: Sweetheart, you think I don't know that?

Chelsea: So then why do you want to be a part of all this?

Adam: I don't have a choice!

Chelsea: You do have a choice! Walk away! Don't help Victor anymore! You're out of prison now, Adam. He can't hurt you.

Ashley: Ultimately, you're to blame for everything that's happened. But I am prepared to make you an offer of $25 million.

Victor: [Chuckles] $25 million? You're wasting my time, my dear.

Ashley: $50 million. I don't want to see another brother be hurt by you.

Victor: Why are you so protective of that useless brother of yours? Billy boy Abbott brought all this down on you.

Ashley: Our daughter's getting married, Victor, okay? And I don't want her wedding to be marred by you and I going at each other's throats.

Victor: Nor do I. But as long as you hold me responsible...

Ashley: Okay, there's enough blame to go around! $50 million to make this go away!

Victor: You add a zero to that, then we can talk, okay?

Ashley: $500 million?

Victor: Bye-bye.


Phyllis: Jack may have wanted to sock you in the jaw just now, but he loves you, Billy, unconditionally.

Billy: I got to give it to my brother. He is loyal.

Phyllis: Yep. And he knows how to channel his emotions, unlike some of us, which is a good thing for you and me and our entire family.

Billy: Oh, yes. I'm well aware of his amazing qualities. They've been held up as the gold standard my entire life. But the guy is not without his shortcomings.

Phyllis: None that I've noticed.

Billy: [Groans] You know exactly what I'm talking about, Phyllis. [Sighs] The guy feels like he can coexist peacefully with Victor, and we all know that that is not possible, not after everything he's done.

Phyllis: Which is why I went along with you, Billy, with this whole paragon stunt. But now that Victor is on to us --

Billy: Now that he is on to us, why the hell would we appease him? No matter what we offer Victor, he's -- he's going to insist that he is the last one standing, and jack's magic powers, this voice of reason, is going to be worthless against the almighty Newman. You know that's true. There is only one way that we survive this.

Adam: I'm committed to going down this road with my father. It's not worth talking about. There's no going back.

Chelsea: Okay, but --

Adam: To be honest with you, I'm glad I'm in this position.

Chelsea: Really?

Adam: Yeah. Really. I'm my dad's right-hand man. I can keep an eye on him, and I can keep Jack safe. It's perfect.

Chelsea: Hmm. Okay, well, um, you didn't answer my question before.

Adam: I didn't answer your question about what?

Chelsea: Sage. How would you feel if I was making her a target for your father the way you're making Billy?

Adam: It's not about that.

Chelsea: Well, then explain it to me, Adam. What? What is it that I'm not getting?

Adam: Sweetheart, I'm doing Billy a favor.

Ashley: I met with Victor today.

Billy: Why would you do that?

Ashley: I made him an offer to keep him from pursuing a lawsuit.

Jack: How much is he asking?

Ashley: Half a billion dollars.

Billy: [Scoffs] Half a billion? Well, that's -- that's a bargain.

Ashley: It's no joke, Billy.

Billy: Well, it ought to be. We can't afford that. Look, we're not making a deal with Victor.

Phyllis: That's right. Billy is right. We'd be rewarding Victor for the horrible things he's done to this family.

Ashley: Well, if we're gonna try to get out of this --

Billy: Listen, we can't deplete Jabot's resources.

Ashley: What we can't do is go to court, Billy, 'cause then we're gonna be liable for far more than half a billion dollars.

Billy: Okay. All right. Fine. Look, I've got another option. I'm the one who launched paragon 2.0. I quit, Victor comes after me.

Jack: No.

Billy: Look, your hands are clean, and you can't prove that Phyllis was involved, so --

Jack: I'm not gonna let you do that. I'm not offering you up as some ritual sacrifice to Victor's ego.

Billy: Well, I'm not giving you a choice.

Jack: Don't you understand? It's not going to end there. Victor sees this as an opportunity to bring down Jabot. And he's not gonna be satisfied just trashing Billy. He's coming after all of us. There is no settling with him, no matter what you offer.

Ashley: Look, if we pay him --

Jack: No, we're not going to trial. We are not giving him a half a billion dollars. No, I will talk to Victor. We will work out a better deal.

Billy: Yeah, talk to him. Wake up, Jack.

Ashley: Billy.

Billy: There's no negotiating with Victor Newman, is there?

Ashley: Hey!

Phyllis: Hey!

Billy: Is there? So what are you gonna do, Jack? What are you gonna do?! See? That -- that's what you have to do! You got to fight if you want to beat Victor, Jack!

Marisa: Noah said that my daughter attends a school only the wealthy can afford, that she's not the miserable, impoverished child you and Marco --

Luca: Whoa, whoa, whoa. You believe Noah?

Marisa: I just saw it for myself! I was so overwhelmed meeting her for the first time, I wasn't thinking, but the clothes, the way she spoke -- it's obvious that she's loved and well-cared for. And you weren't at all surprised.

Luca: I'd never let our daughter stay in an ugly, abusive situation.

Marisa: You let me think the worst!

Luca: Yes.

Marisa: Why? Why would you lie to me?

Luca: Because I knew I didn't imagine the love we felt for each other.

Marisa: [Sighs]

Luca: It was my family that drove us apart, Marisa, their meddling. I believed that we would find that love again if it was just the two of us searching for our daughter.

Marisa: Tell me the truth about Eva.

Luca: Marisa --

Marisa: Tell me!

Luca: I pay her tuition. I've been keeping tabs on her, providing for her.

Marisa: And the family she lives with?

Luca: They aren't wealthy, can't afford much, but they are good, loving people.

Marisa: How could you?

Luca: Look, what I did was misguided, hurtful. But I want to make it right now, Marisa. To see you and our daughter together -- I can make that happen for you.

Noah: Grandpa, what are you thinking going into business with Luca Santori and his --

Victor: Shh, shh, shh.

Noah: ...And his family?

Victor: Shh, shh, shh.

Noah: Why are you doing business with them?

Victor: Son, I'm running a company.

Noah: These are very dangerous people that you're bringing into our lives.

Victor: Oh, yeah? What have you heard?

Noah: Okay, well, forget the bribery and the market manipulations. They're illegal arms dealers.

Victor: They've never been convicted of anything.

Noah: That's because they manipulated the system. They intimidated people. They threatened them.

Victor: Noah. People on a certain level of business are known sometimes to intimidate people and do things that others don't like necessarily.

Noah: I don't think...

Victor: But you need to stay out of this. I'm warning you.

Victor: Powerful people attract all kinds of unwanted and unfounded accusations.

Noah: Unfounded? Are you sure they're unfounded?

Victor: I know why you're doing this. You want to hang on to that girl.

Noah: Maybe. So what?

Victor: I understand, Noah, okay? If anyone understands, I do. But let me warn you. She's dangerous. You're too good for her. She has been with a lot of bad guys. Luca Santori, Marco. These are treacherous men. So consider you're lucky if she's gone.

Noah: I get it. I get it. You don't want Marisa and I to be together. I hear you loud and clear. But this doesn't have to be like Billy and Victoria. It doesn't. Victoria's finally walking out on Billy.

Victor: Wait a minute.

Noah: You had to rub it in his face at the christening.

Victor: Do you know how much it hurt to see my daughter Victoria, who I adore, associate herself with Billy Abbott? He's a useless SOB.

Noah: You're just so good at getting what you want.

Victor: You bet.

Noah: And, you know, going into business with the Santoris, it does have the added benefit of throwing Marisa's ex into the mix, putting a wedge between her and I.

Victor: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. You think that's what I'm doing? Come on now.

Noah: What I know is that these are the worst kind of criminals, and I cannot just sit by while my grandfather brings them further into our lives.

Victor: Mm-hmm. To which I have to say you let me worry about that, okay?

Luca: Come in. I'm Luca. This is Marisa.

Carmen: You were at the park.

Marisa: Yeah. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to worry you, Carmen, by speaking to Eva that way. You see, I'M...

Carmen: Eva's biological mother.

Marisa: That's right. And Luca's...

Luca: I'm the man who's been paying for Eva's schooling.

Carmen: I suspected this day would come. The adoption was so secret, no legal documents. I just knew one day you would want her back. I am begging you, please, to think about what you are doing. Think about the girl.

[Voice breaking] My daughter, she is the light of my life. Her life, it's here. It's all she's ever known.

Marisa: Seeing her, I...

Carmen: I cannot afford much. I may not be able to afford a big house or the nicest of clothes, but she goes to a good school. Eva has a happy life with much love. So much love.

Marisa: I can -- I can see that. And I am grateful for that, Carmen. I really am. All I want is my little girl's happiness.

Mariah: Leaving?

Kevin: Yes. I'm headed home. I need to do some serious work with a little more privacy.

Mariah: Oh, yay. Your super-secret project with the yodeler.

Kevin: Yodeler?

Mariah: Yeah. The Swiss hacker chick who apparently is too dense to realize how great her idea is. What is this amazing idea, anyway?

Kevin: I can't say.

Mariah: Because it's not legal?

Kevin: It's totally legit.

Mariah: You said that the Newmans and the Abbotts would pay a fortune for it. Why?

Jack: Going on the attack against Newman, escalating hostilities, is not the answer.

Phyllis: What's left to escalate? Victor couldn't be any more hostile.

Ashley: What's your suggestion?

Jack: I will broker a better deal.

Ashley: There's no chance in hell, Jack.

Billy: See, this is what I'm thinking.

Jack: I will get Victor to listen to reason.

Phyllis: Reason? Victor doesn't do that, Jack.

Billy: Jack, what is it gonna take for you to realize there is no reasoning with lurch. I mean, how low does this guy have to go?

Jack: I will find a way.

Billy: Oh, this -- this is great. While he goes and grovels to Victor, we're here doing exactly nothing.

Ashley: It's all because of you, Billy. You're the problem.

Billy: [Scoffs]

Phyllis: Attacking one another is not gonna solve a thing.

Billy: Well, neither is crippling Jabot by caving to Victor's demands.

Ashley: You haven't given us a choice, Billy. No, I admit it. Losing half a billion dollars -- it's gonna hurt. But we can rebuild, and that won't be the case if we go to court.

Billy: Well, there has got to be something we can do to save this company while Victor is laughing at us.

Phyllis: Jack could find a way to combine our assets.

Ashley: If he can't make a deal, I'm paying Victor off.

Billy: Ashley, you can't do that!

Ashley: I don't want to hear anything from you, okay, because your input is not welcome.

Billy: Fine. Fine. You do whatever the hell you want.

Phyllis: Oh, Billy, come on. What are you doing?

Chelsea: You think you're doing Billy a favor, setting him up so Victor can take a swipe at him?

Adam: Sweetheart, Billy acted on his worst impulses to take on my father, okay? Number one, it's a losing proposition. Number two, it feeds into the narrative that my father's made up about him, that he's inconsistent, that he can't be trusted, that he's a lightweight.

Chelsea: But don't you think that by making him a target --

Adam: I'm removing Billy from the fray is what I'm doing. I'm protecting him from acting on his anger toward my father. You see what I'm doing? I'm giving him his last chance, sweetheart.

Chelsea: Uh, his last chance to fix things with Victoria?

Adam: His last chance to get his family back. Thank you. Come here.

Marisa: You can't know how hard it was for me to give up my daughter. It was the most difficult decision I've ever had to make.

Carmen: How could you let her go?

Marisa: I was determined to not raise my child in the unhappy life I was living. I wanted better for her. I was told that, uh, she was living in a difficult environment, abusive family.

Carmen: No. Never. We would never. I could never hurt her.

Marisa: I didn't know, Carmen. I was desperate to get my child out of the terrible circumstances that were described to me. I would have done anything. Done things I otherwise wouldn't have.

Carmen: All for your daughter.

Marisa: You can't know what it was like to finally see her.

Carmen: I do know. I understand a mother's joy.

Marisa: No, it wasn't just the joy of being reunited with her after all these years. It was -- it was the joy of seeing how happy she is.

Carmen: You've come to take her back.

Marisa: That's why I came, yes.

Carmen: How will I tell her? [Sobs] I don't want her to think I'm sending her away.

Marisa: I did come to take her back. But after seeing the two of you together, after meeting you, Carmen... [Sighs] How am I supposed to do that? [Voice breaking] How -- how can I rip Eva away from the only family she's ever known and the only mother she's ever known?

Carmen: [Sobs] [Sighs]

Marisa: Take care of my daughter.

Carmen: [Sniffles]

Marisa: Please. [Sobs]

Victor: You do not want to get involved with the Santoris. And you do not want to throw a wrench into my business dealings with them, not at this critical juncture for my company. Don't make the same mistake that Billy Abbott did.

Jack: I heard about the deal you made with my sister.

Victor: Well, hello, Jack. She led me to believe that she has the decision-making power since she's C.E.O. Of your company.

Jack: Well, I am here in good faith to try to come up with a compromise, a way to end this so that we can both get on with our lives.

Victor: I told your sister what I expected.

Jack: Well, you and I both know that half a billion dollars would cripple Jabot financially. And since neither Newman nor Jabot is particularly sound right now after paragon, I think we need to come up with another way.

Victor: You have lost control, Jack. It's embarrassing. If I were you, I would go quietly to this good night, let Jabot just dissolve, enjoy early retirement.

Jack: Why don't you go to hell?

Victor: [Chuckles]

Kevin: The Santoris are involved in some serious black-market stuff.

Noah: They're illegal arms dealers.

Victor: They've never been convicted of anything.

Noah: That's because they manipulated the system. They intimidated people. They threatened them. And I cannot just sit by while my grandfather brings them further into our lives.

Noah: Yes, I have, uh, I have information about a crime. Yes, it's a federal crime. There's an arms dealer doing business here in Wisconsin. Yeah. I know where your agents can find him.

Luca: This is your choice? To leave Eva here with this family?

Marisa: All I ever wanted was for my daughter to be loved and happy. And now that she is, I can't ruin that for her. Don't ruin this for her, Luca. Don't.

Luca: What you did was so selfless. Such a good thing. I'm so proud of you.

Mariah: Give me a hint. What is this world-changing idea?

Kevin: Will you keep your voice down? I don't even like talking about it.

Mariah: Why not?

Kevin: Because I don't want somebody else to steal the idea from me and this other hacker.

Mariah: Who is better at keeping secrets than me? I'm honestly a little offended that you won't tell me what it is.

Kevin: [Sighs] You promise you won't say anything?

Mariah: Consider me sworn. Spill.

Kevin: This hacker and I have discovered a way to return complete privacy to computers, to make them hack-proof, full, complete, impenetrable protection of government, personal, and business information.

Mariah: That's huge. Is it possible?

Kevin: [Scoffs] I think it is. I think it's revolutionary. And this is the kind of stuff that fortunes are made on.

Mariah: I mean, consider your secret safe with me. Now, excuse me while I revolutionize bartending.

Billy: Hey, Kevin.

Kevin: Hey. Billy, what's up?

Billy: Uh...[Chuckles] Well, the whole thing kind of blew up in my face. Victor is threatening to sue my family for half a billion dollars.

Kevin: Half a billion?

Billy: Yeah, jack's trying to keep it out of court, but there's -- there's no guarantees, you know?

Kevin: If this goes to court, they're gonna ask you questions, like who was helping you on the tech side of things... and that could be a problem for both of us.

Billy: Victor's going to know that you were working for me to bring down Newman all while collecting a paycheck from him.

Kevin: I don't like the sound of that.

Billy: No. So... you got any ideas how to resolve this?

Phyllis: Billy cares about this family and Jabot as much as you and Jack do. He has overcome so much. He has put up with so much, and he has always had the guts to take on Victor. What?

Ashley: I'm just wondering when you're gonna be as loyal to your husband as you are to Billy.

Victor: I will take this to court.

Jack: I hope you do. I would love a chance to sit on the witness stand and tell the judge that you came after Jabot first, had me kidnapped, put a stranger in my wife's bed, the whole thing.

Victor: Then your role in Kelly's death and the death of innocent people on the cargo ship would become public record.

Jack: I will happily go to jail if it means my family will not be bled to death. You better get ready for your own cell.

Victor: You're bluffing.

Jack: You think I'm bluffing? I tried to make peace with you. I tried to reason with you, even after Marco, after everything you did to me, to my wife, because of paragon, something for which I was in no way responsible, and yet you sit here smug as ever, threatening me? Threatening my company? Consider negotiations ended. You want a war? You just got one.

Victor: And I relish a war.

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

Sharon: Is there something wrong with my behavior, the way that I'm thinking or I'm feeling? You think I need to go back to Fairview?

Nick: I boxed up the nursery.

Sage: What are you trying to do? Pretend that Christian never existed?

Cane: Not only did she sleep with him, she claims now she has feelings for him. Is that right?
