Kevin: I'm sorry, I -- oh. You. [Chuckling] Hi.

Chloe: Hi.

Kevin: What are you doing here?

Chloe: Well, like I said, my boyfriend has gone missing, and I haven't seen him in, oh, I don't know how many days or nights.

Kevin: I'm sorry. It's just this -- this case, it's intense.

Chloe: Well, I was hoping that you could help me find him. He's about, um, this tall.

Kevin: [Scoffs]

Chloe: He has kind of a bed-head thing going on and... cute dimples like yours. Green eyes -- very sexy green eyes. I promise I'll make it worth your while.

Kevin: I...I wish I could. I just -- I have so much work to do. D-did you just...

Chloe: What? This? Yeah.

Kevin: And you're...

Chloe: Totally. So you gonna help a girl out or what?

Lauren: Thank you for making the trip from Chicago, Mr. Hochman.

Hochman: To meet the brilliant, beautiful head of Fenmore's? Oh, it's hardly an inconvenience.

Lauren: [Laughs] You're too kind.

Hochman: Fenmore's is legendary, and you've been making quite a buzz for yourself in the industry. I'm excited to hear your pitch.

Lauren: It's actually very simple.

Hochman: Hmm.

Lauren: My goal isn't to just preserve the legend. It's to enhance it. It's to take the success from the past and reimagine it for a new era, a whole-new way of doing business, taking Fenmore's into the future.

Hochman: [Chuckles] And you need capital -- my capital -- to make it work.

Lauren: Well, I'm not gonna lie to you. The answer is an emphatic yes.

Michael: "Lauren needs all of us"? Would you care to elaborate?

Gloria: Can we just agree it would be in the best interest of our little family if we all came together for Lauren's sake, huh?

Michael: What exactly is your best interest, Gloria?

Gloria: This is not about me. And I don't expect a "thank you."

Michael: Really?

Gloria: I have a brilliant business mind, Michael, and I could give Lauren invaluable support.

Michael: [Scoffs] This is about a job! It's about a job! Have you run this by Lauren?!

Gloria: You know, she's got a --

Michael: If I ask my wife if you've been sniffing around about a job, what answer would I get?!

Gloria: I do not like your attitude, Michael. I am trying to help!

Michael: And I do not like my mother trying to use me to get something Lauren's already said no to!

Noah: Hey! If it isn't our latest and most loyal regular! I assume you'll have the usual? Yeah? I'll put it on his tab. Don't worry about it.

Nick: What? Are you trying to be funny?

Noah: Hey, don't get me wrong. I'm glad to see you being such a devoted dad to my little bro here, but, uh --

Nick: But what kind of father keeps dragging his son to a bar?

Victor: [Chuckles] What do you have up your sleeve? Huh?

Faith: Check.

Victor: Whoa! Well, back at you.

Faith: Checkmate.

Victor: Well, I'll be damned! [Laughs] You.

Faith: Did you let me win?

Victor: Well... maybe a little bit, you know. I just want you to get the taste for winning, all right? But one day you're gonna beat me fair and square, and I'm looking forward to it.

Faith: Like when I beat grandma "fair and square" a couple times?

Victor: You did? You know why you did? Because you're very bright and you're a Newman. You have an instinct for winning. That's why. And I'm gonna teach you all the intricacies of the game. Gonna take awhile, but you'll learn it.

Faith: What if I'm not here long enough?

Victor: What do you mean?

Faith: I can't stay with you and grandma forever. That's what Noah said.

Victor: Well, what do you say?

Faith: I know I can't stay here forever. But... if I go back to Mom and Dad, I know they'll just start fighting again.

Gloria: Oh, the trust of my loving son!

Michael: Who knows you all too well.

Gloria: All right! Maybe I did ask her about a job. But your wife turned me down. Happy?

Michael: I knew it!

Gloria: She has a brilliant business mind. But there is no reason for her to do it all alone. What's wrong with a third hand on the wheel?

Michael: You really want me to answer that?

Gloria: Oh, go ahead. Make all the jokes you want. I'm worried about you.

Michael: Okay, I'll bite. Why?

Gloria: You have a successful legal practice. And it will be successful again someday -- someday. In the meantime, look at this place, the condo, the clothes, the trips. Without Lauren's income from Fenmore's, it could be gone!

Michael: Okay, let me get this straight. I convince my wife to give you a job, and you save the day, and I get to keep my lifestyle.

Gloria: It happened to me. It could happen to you. But oh, no, Gloria gets all the ridicule, all the insults. I don't know why I try! Oh, that's right. I love you.

Michael: Don't lay the guilt on so thick. It's just creepy.

Gloria: Fine! I will take your word that Lauren has a solution and that Fenmore's will once again be coming up roses.

Michael: Thank you.

Gloria: Michael. This meeting that Lauren has, is it about a potential investor?

Michael: Possibly.

Gloria: Does the investor have a name?

Michael: Nope!

Kevin: Stop it! Sorry, Joe. Not you. Ahh! You know what? The -- the -- the file that you're looking for, right, it's the, um, the Brock case? Here we go. Take it. I'm done with it. I don't even know why it was in there. Are you crazy? What if Joe saw you?

Chloe: You really think that Joe would have complained?

Kevin: No, but this is a place of employment. There are rules against that kind of thing.

Chloe: Well, the quicker we get out of here, the quicker you don't have to worry about Joe seeing or not.

Kevin: [Sighs] Okay.

Chloe: Okay?

Kevin: Yeah. I just have to send this update. Stash that. Okay. And... I am ready. So, what's the plan? Not that I don't have a reasonable idea.

Chloe: I mean, I thought I was gonna have to work a little bit harder than that, throw in some emotional blackmail or something.

Kevin: Oh, no. You had me at the trench coat.

Chloe: [Chuckles]

Kevin: Come on.

Noah: Dad, come on. Christian should be home in his crib having baby dreams, not playing barback.

Nick: All right, you want to talk about the shoulds? Let's do that. Yes, sage and I should have brought our son home from the hospital. Yes, Christian's mom should still be alive. It's a lot of shoulds, Noah.

Noah: I'm sorry, dad.

Nick: And I know -- I know that Christian should be at home, you know, working on a normal routine. But Amy is taking classes again, which means I'm on the nanny search again. And the sitter I called to watch him, she's having car trouble. So what was I supposed to do? Just stay home and let you deal with all this alone?

Noah: Well, I've been dealing with it, dad, and, you know, it's going really well. So yeah, you could have stayed at home.

Nick: I'm doing the best I can.

Noah: I know you are.

Nick: But a better father wouldn't keep dragging his son to a bar? A better father would have known that his son was allergic to strawberries?

Noah: That was not your fault.

Nick: Well, it feels like it! And it's not even just Christian. Where's my daughter right now? She is living with my parents because it upsets her to be around Sharon or me. So if you're ready to give me the, uh, "How to be a better parent" lecture, then let's go. I'm ready to hear it.

Noah: Well, you could start by forgiving Mom.

[Christian cries]

Noah: [Sighs]

Nikki: Ohh. Has Grandpa been giving you a lesson?

Victor: Uh-huh.

Faith: Yeah.

Nikki: Dare I ask who won?

Victor: Well, our sweet angel did.

Nikki: Well, that's probably because of all the good moves I gave you.

Victor: What?

Faith: Grandpa let me win.

Victor: Sweetheart, do you mind if I bring up what you and I were talking about?

Nikki: What? What is it? What's wrong?

Victor: Well, faith and I were talking about the fact that she's a little worried that when she goes back to nick and Sharon's that they will start fighting.

Nikki: Well, sweetheart, you know that they love you very much.

Faith: Things are different now at dad's house and at mom's. Dad has Christian now, and mom... Dylan's just been really busy with his job. I think she's kind of sad. But if I go stay with her, maybe dad won't like it. But if I go stay with dad... I just want everybody to be happy.

Victor: Come here, my sweetheart. Come here. You know... you're a very smart girl, okay? Very perceptive. And a lot of things happened that upset a lot of people. It's true. But I want you to know that we all love you, okay? And your mom and dad want you to be happy. So what are you thinking now?

Faith: I guess I'm just trying to figure out how I fit in.

Hochman: Good strategy.

Lauren: And this is just the beginning. And that's why I need someone with capital who can turn this into a reality. You see, this is not just about money.

Hochman: It's always about money.

Lauren: I prefer vision and passion. Fenmore's is in my blood, and that's why I've given a great deal of thought as to who this investor should be. Now, yes, I do need an influx of cash, but I would turn down easy money if it meant compromising my values or my company.

Hochman: You want a silent partner to allow you to run the business that you love the way that you want to run it.

Lauren: No, I would welcome a healthy interest in my company.

Hochman: As long as they let you dot your own I'S.

Lauren: I am good at what I do, Mr. Hochman.

Hochman: I have no doubt.

Lauren: I'd like to introduce you to my new point person who can go over our new web-design presence and the market strategy.

Hochman: That won't be necessary. Your reputation precedes you, as does Fenmore's. Obviously I have to do my due diligence, but I have a feeling that will just be a formality.

Lauren: Then you're interested?

Hochman: I'm looking forward to watch you work that magic that you're so famous for.

Lauren: [Laughs] Well, then, here's to a beautiful and profitable partnership.

Gloria: Okay, I get it. You don't want my help. Fine. Can I at least take you to dinner?

Michael: Better idea. Why don't I help you pack? The athletic club is very comfortable.

Gloria: You meant that? You're throwing me out?

Michael: It's a civilized solution to our problem.

Gloria: Oh, all of a sudden I'm a problem?

Michael: You are the one who said Lauren needs all our support, right? What Lauren needs now is space and peace.

Gloria: Of course. Turn on my words. Of course.

Michael: Look, let me make the reservations. A suite, best view they have, a welcome basket. You could treat yourself to a massage, a sauna.

Gloria: And you'll pick up the tab?

Michael: Well, for tonight, it's the least I can do.

Gloria: [Chuckles] Michael, do you really think it's time to be squandering so much money? Okay, I get it. But I'm not happy.

Michael: I'm sure you'll get over it. Let -- let me help you get your things. Wait, hold on. Are those Lauren's earrings?

Nick: You know, your mother is the one who blew this family apart, not me.

Noah: Maybe. Maybe you're the one who can heal it.

Nick: Look, I'm just trying to create a stable life for my son.

Noah: And where does faith fit into that picture?

Nick: What the hell kind of question is that? Nothing would make me happier than if faith came home.

Noah: All right, well, dad, I hung out with her the other day, and [Scoffs] She's struggling.

Nick: Yeah, I know. I know how she feels like she's caught in the middle, like you did.

Noah: She feels guilty.

Nick: Well, she shouldn't.

Noah: Well, she does, dad. Dad, she feels so responsible for everybody's happiness. That's a lot for a 9-year-old to take on, okay? And if you and mom could just find some middle ground here --

Nick: Okay, just stop. Stop, stop, all right? What your mother did was unforgivable, and I don't know if I'm ever gonna be able to get past that.

Noah: Not even for faith?

Victor: You're this family's heartbeat. You're as irreplaceable as the sun. Don't you ever forget that. But remember one thing. I once asked the same question that you're asking.

Faith: You did?

Victor: Yeah. I know I told you that I grew up in an orphanage, okay, that no one ever came to check up on me. I didn't even know I had any parents. So every night I went to bed, and every morning I woke up, I asked the same question that you're asking. "How do I fit in?"

Faith: You must have felt so alone.

Victor: But, thank the lord, you never have to worry about that.

Faith: I'm so sorry, grandpa.

Victor: You know, it made me who I am. It made me strong. It made me fight. But one thing I learned, the most important thing is family. We must always love each other, always help each other, always protect each other. Right? No matter what.

Nikki: Faith, you are so loved by everybody in the family, but most especially by your parents.

Faith: That's why I don't want to mess things up.

Victor: How could you possibly mess things up?

Faith: Like with dad.

Victor: Yeah?

Faith: He's trying so hard to learn all about Christian so he can be a good dad to him, too.

Victor: Okay.

Faith: And I don't want to get in the way.

Victor: No.

Nikki: Honey, you're family. You are very important to your father and Christian.

Faith: It's just different now. Can I go upstairs now?

Nikki: Yes, of course.

Victor: Okay, my sweetheart. Okay. This has to be handled, you know.

Nikki: Yes. And I know exactly who should handle it.

Nick: Look, I want to be the best dad I can to all of you. I want a real home for Christian and faith, someplace where they feel safe.

Noah: Well, faith is never gonna feel safe until there's peace between you and mom. And as for that stable home you want, no, dad, not so much, not while you and mom are circling each other.

Nick: He's not gonna let this go, is he?

Noah: Just do me a favor and think about it.

Nick: My priority is the wellbeing of my children, and I just have to make sure I check every box, every one of them, to make sure they're getting what they need.

[Cell phone rings]

Nick: What's that? That's this phone. Who is it? Who is it? Hey, Mom. What's up?

Nikki: Hi. Are you busy?

Nick: Just at the underground wrapping things up. What's going on?

Nikki: You think you could come by the house? Faith really needs you.

Nick: Is she okay?

Nikki: She's not having the greatest day, but, um, I think a little daddy time will help.

Nick: Uh, yeah, yeah. I'm on my way. I got to go. Are you good here?

Noah: Yeah, of course. What's up?

Nick: Looks like I forgot to check a few of those boxes.

Noah: Bye, buddy.

Chloe: Ah!

[Cell phone ringing]

Chloe: Don't answer it.

Kevin: It might be important.

Chloe: That's what voicemails are for.

[Ringing continues]

Chloe: [Sighs] Come on. [Sighs] It's your brother.

Kevin: I should take this.

Chloe: No. Hi. Michael, yeah, it's Chloe. Um, Kevin is very busy right now, very, very busy, so he's gonna have to call you back as soon as he's done. Okay, thanks. Bye.

Kevin: I can't believe you just did that.

Chloe: Oh, I'm gonna do so many things to you that you can't believe.

[Cell phone rings]

Chloe: [Sighs]

Kevin: If he's calling again, it must be important.

Chloe: Oh!

[Both sigh]

Kevin: Michael, what's wrong?

Michael: We need to talk about Gloria.

Kevin: No, not having that talk, not now.

Michael: Kevin, come on! I've done my duty! I've been a good son! I've given her a place to live, but I can't do it anymore! It's your turn!

Kevin: You want her to live with us? Are you kidding?!

Chloe: What? No. No way.

Michael: I'm as serious as a heart attack, which is what I'm gonna have if she stays with us one more day.

Kevin: I have a life, Michael.

Michael: You also have a house! You can put her in the basement!

Kevin: I'm thinking about Chloe! You know the way mom treats her!

Michael: I'm thinking about Lauren! Gloria is stealing her jewelry. I need peace, Kevin, and there is no peace as long as mommy dearest is living here.

Kevin: Sorry. Wish I could help you out, but the house is full up. No room for Gloria. Ever. Sorry.

Michael: I'm not asking. Look, she's taken care of tonight, but tomorrow she's all yours.

Kevin: Wait, Michael!

Hochman: Well, I think I've got everything that I need.

Lauren: Excellent. I can't tell you how pleased I am.

Hochman: This is an exciting proposition, Lauren.

Lauren: And it's just the beginning. So, tell me, are you headed back to Chicago tonight?

Hochman: No, I'm, uh, gonna take a room. I'm gonna go relax right now. Uh, but I'll give you a call as soon as I get back to my office.

Lauren: I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Hochman: Oh, it's been a pleasure.

Lauren: Oh, you have no idea.

Hochman: [Chuckles]

Lauren: Thank you.

Hochman: Oh, excuse me. Um, where would I find the spa?

Straight down this hall, take a right.

Hochman: Thanks.

Nick: Where is she?

Victor: She is in her room. Oh, there she is.

Faith: Daddy!

Nick: Hey, beautiful.

Faith: Hi!

Nick: Hello.

Faith: Oh, hi, Christian! I didn't know you were coming.

Nick: Yeah, it was kind of a spur-of-the-moment thing. I just had this hankering to spend some time with my best girl. What are you doing right now? You want to hang out, maybe go to the ice skating rink? You can show me some of those spirals you've been working on. I'm dying to see them.

Faith: Yeah! Can I go?

Victor: Of course you can.

Nick: All right! What are you two doing right now? Would you, uh...

Nikki: Want to do some babysitting.

Victor: I thought you would never ask.


Nick: Cool. You hear that? It's just you and me.

Chloe: Can't we just stuff her back into the box that she popped out of on Christmas? Better yet, let's ship her off to France.

Kevin: Yeah, I like the way you think, but that's not an option.

Chloe: You know, she called me a lunatic.

Kevin: And a she-wolf!

Chloe: Wait, what?

Kevin: What?

Chloe: Kevin, she does not want us together. I mean, there's no way that we're gonna be able to survive under the same roof!

Kevin: I'll handle this. I've got this handled!

Chloe: Yeah?

Kevin: Yeah.

Chloe: How?

Kevin: You know what? I would like to get back to doing what we were doing before that phone call.

Chloe: Well, I told you not to pick it up.

Kevin: I know, and you were right. Oh. That works, too. Okay. Ahh. Better?

Chloe: Getting there.

Kevin: Okay. Come here. Now, do I get to see what's underneath that trench coat?

Chloe: [Sighs] Better?

Kevin: Getting there.

[Knock on door]

Chloe: I got to get that.

Kevin: No, tell them to go away. Go away!

Chloe: No, no, no, no! Don't go away! [Sighs] I got us massages.

Kevin: So no...?

Chloe: Surprise. [Sighs]

Lauren: Oh! What's this?!

Michael: [Chuckles] I packed Gloria off to parts unknown, at least for tonight, hopefully longer.

Lauren: Ohh.

Michael: Hold it.

[Cork pops]

Michael: Ooh.

Lauren: [Laughs] I like the sound of that.

Michael: The cork or the fact that Gloria's MIA?

Lauren: Um, hmm. Both?

Michael: At least this way no matter what happened at your meeting, we'll have something to celebrate.

Lauren: Thank you. You, my darling... really are my hero.

Michael: This is also me apologizing. You told me that Fenmore's was in trouble, and I made it about me, about you not trusting me enough to tell me earlier. Well, I was wrong. You navigated the best you could. You made the choices you needed to make.

Lauren: One of the worst decisions I've ever made is not telling you the truth about Fenmore's. Honestly, I should have told you months ago.

Michael: Now you've told me. And we're gonna do this together.

Lauren: I love you.

Michael: I like the sound of that. A toast to the next best thing to being right -- being wrong and admitting it.

Lauren: [Laughs] I will definitely drink to that.

Michael: Yeah.

Lauren: Hmm. So good.

Michael: It's your favorite.

Lauren: Yes. Silence. [Chuckles]

Michael: Hmm. Cheers to that. Maybe permanent.

Lauren: Ah. Nectar.

[Both chuckle]

Lauren: [Sighs] I really needed this. Thanks.

Michael: All right, you're -- you're making me crazy.

Lauren: What?

Michael: You're gonna make me ask, aren't you? You are... so what happened?

Lauren: Well, it seems that my problems with Fenmore's may be a thing of the past.

Michael: Really?

Lauren: Mm-hmm.

[Door opens]

Gloria: [Sighs] Excuse me. Am I interrupting?

Hochman: Not at all.

Gloria: Isn't this relaxing?

Hochman: It certainly is.

Gloria: Oh, and that's exactly what I need -- a big dose of relaxation after the day I've had. So I'm just going to lie back, open the pores, release all the toxins, and sweat the day away. [Sighs deeply]

Hochman: Are you all right?

Gloria: That's very kind of you to ask. You would probably say that I'm overreacting, but anybody who knows me knows that I don't let things get to me. I'm forgiving, I'm patient. But I had the worst customer service today that I have ever had!

Hochman: I'm from out of town, so I'm not familiar with any of the local businesses.

Gloria: Oh, this place isn't local. It's every place. Fenmore's. Maybe you've heard of it, huh? Oh, I'm sorry. I'm boring you.

Hochman: Actually, you're not boring me at all. Please. Tell me more.

Gloria: I needed a dress for a big charity ball. When one is blessed, one should share with those less fortunate, n'est pas?

Hochman: But you bought the dress from Fenmore's?

Gloria: Yes, and I'm very sorry to say. They didn't have the color I wanted in the store, so it had to be ordered. But when it was delivered, it was still the wrong color. I mean, look at my skin tone. Puce -- puce is not my color. It's not anybody's color.

Hochman: But you did get the right dress?

Gloria: Yes, but barely in time. And the dress turned out to be the wrong size. I went for a fitting. No problem. I'm not losing my temper. But when I went back to pick it up, they hadn't done the alterations. Do I look like a size 10 to you?

Hochman: Definitely not.

Gloria: Thank you. [Laughs] So here I am sweating out all my frustrations and not giving away thousands of dollars to a good cause, all because of Fenmore's.

Hochman: It's very unfortunate, but, I mean, is it possible that this is just a one-time screw-up, that this is not indicative of the company as a whole?

Gloria: No, no, no, no, no. Au contraire. I hear so many stories from all of my friends. You know, I am so sorry, but I'm just not going to go back there anymore. So many of my friends feel the same way. Long-time, good clients. Sad, huh? Oh, well. [Sighs] You know, with all of this happening, how can a store stay in business?

Lauren: Hochman is everything I could ever want in an investor, especially the hands-off part. And it certainly helps that he is so excited to come on board.

Michael: How could he not be? You've been exciting me for years.

Lauren: Hmm. You charmer, you.

Michael: Mm-hmm. Nothing but the truth, so help me God.

Lauren: Mm-hmm.

Michael: [Growls]

Lauren: [Laughs] Well, I wasn't the only one busy tonight. How the heck did you get rid of Gloria?

Michael: Oh, that. Oh, a little charm, a little guilt.

Lauren: [Laughs]

Michael: A whole lot of begging.

Lauren: Hmm, you're a brave man. You are.

Michael: Don't you know there's nothing I wouldn't do for you? I've made some mistakes in --

Lauren: Ah. We both have.

Michael: But the one absolute unshakeable truth is being with you is the best thing that's ever happened to me. Heart-stopping, never boring.

Lauren: [Laughing] Oh, no! It's never boring!

Michael: You, my beautiful wife, you awe and amaze me every single day.

Lauren: Now clearly the champagne is getting to your head.

Michael: Unh-unh. You got to my head.

Victor: My sweet love.

Nikki: So what are you thinking about?

Victor: Well... you know what made me happy... is to teach our granddaughter the intricacies of chess and to watch her face light up and she understood the strategy behind the move. I loved it. Just loved it.

Nikki: No wonder you let her win. It's definitely a sign that you're mellowing.

Victor: Oh, really?

Nikki: You would never have done that with our kids when they were growing up.

Victor: [Laughs] You think so?

Nikki: Mm-hmm.

Victor: You do? Maybe I've mellowed just a little.

Nikki: Maybe.

Nick: Don't do it. Don't you do it.

Faith: Why not? You pelted me over at the stables.

Nick: Yeah, that's 'cause you surprise-attacked me down by the lake, so I think we're even.

Faith: [Sighs] Okay, I guess we are even.

Nick: Smart girl. You ready for some s'mores? I mean, that is if you think you can handle the marshmallowy and chocolaty goodness.

Faith: Oh, I can always handle s'mores.

Nick: That's my girl.

Faith: Can we play a game?

Nick: Yeah, we can play a game. In fact, I already know what I'm gonna play you at. Or should I say beat you at. Don't expect any mercy from Daddy. You did not just do that.

Faith: Now we're more even.

Nick: Ohh, I'm gonna show you even.

Faith: [Squealing]

Nick: Come back here.

Faith: [Laughs]

Chloe: Thank you so much. Those were the best massages ever. Oh! [Sighs deeply] Now, aren't you so glad that we did that? I mean, Sven said that you were one big knot.

Kevin: Yeah, one big knot called Gloria. If only she were that easy to get rid of.

Chloe: You know what? Let's just not talk about her.

Kevin: Deal. Because there is something that I have been very, very much been looking forward to.

Chloe: Nope. Come on.

Kevin: What? We're -- we're going somewhere dressed like this?

Faith: Yes! Three in a row! Whoo!

Nick: [Sighs]

Faith: [Chuckles]

Nick: You know, you really should be taking it easy on the guy who just gave you the world's best s'mores.

Faith: I beat grandpa today, too. We played chess.

Nick: You did?

Faith: Well, he kind of let me beat him, but he said it was so I would understand what it felt like to win.

Nick: I think you got the winning thing down, kid.

Faith: [Chuckles] Grandpa says knowing the game will be valuable when I grow up.

Nick: He said that?

Faith: He says, "if you can master chess, you can master anyone."

Nick: He said, uh, "anything," right?

Faith: I'm pretty sure he said "anyone."

Victor: Oh. Well, that's a bold move. Hmm.

Nikki: Bold is the only way to keep up with you. And by the way, I'm very glad that you're stepping back from work, having more time with the family.

Victor: Well, that is my plan.

Nikki: It's just hard for me to believe that you're ready to be a man of leisure.

Victor: Whoa, whoa, baby, I'm not -- I'm not planning to retire yet, okay?

Nikki: I know. I'm just wrapping my head around a man just cooing over his grandchild, playing chess instead of being buried by reports at work and looking forward to the next big deal.

Victor: You know, the funny thing is, in the past, I always knew what my next step would be, you know?

Nikki: Yeah. What about now?

Victor: Oh. I think about the company. It's healthier, more profitable, in better shape in a long time. Our kids are healthy. Our kids are, I think, more or less happy, you know. So, um... I don't know. What else is there for me?

Nikki: Maybe it's time to enjoy now. You are the most passionate man I know. And your next great passion, whatever it is, is out there waiting for you.

Victor: You sure?

Nikki: Absolutely. 'Cause I know you that well.

Victor: [Laughs]

Nikki: Oh. Checkmate.

Victor: [Laughing] Are you serious? You distracted me.

Nikki: Faith taught me that.

Victor: You distracted me.

Nikki: I did not.

Victor: Yes, you did.

Kevin: Oh, you're amazing.

Chloe: No, you're more amazing.

Kevin: Best night ever.

Chloe: It's going to be.

Gloria: [Clears throat loudly]

Kevin: Gloria?

Gloria: I was just going to throw a little water on the rocks for some steam. Thanks for saving me the trouble.

Chloe: Oh...

Michael: Let me get the lock.

Lauren: Okay. [Chuckles]

[Cell phone rings]

Lauren: Oh, honey, I-I need to take this. Well, Mr. Hochman, were you too excited to sleep? Oh. I see. No, I understand. No, of course. You know, if that's how you feel. Okay. Thank you.

Michael: Oh? Done deal? Should I pop another cork?

Lauren: It's strange. It's very, very strange. At the meeting, Hochman was all about being a hands-off investor, and, uh, now he wants me to open everything up. He wants to see all my books -- the analytics, the projections, the quarterly reports.

Michael: Maybe he's just being conscientious.

Lauren: He wants to make sure that his money is being well spent. I mean, he didn't doubt that before. Something has changed. It's like he is doubting my ability to run my own company.

Michael: Well, what could have changed his mind?

Lauren: I wish to hell I knew.

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

Nick: Mine is all over the place. And -- really, man?

Sharon: I need to talk to my husband -- right now.
