[Groans] Oh, dear God.
Lauren: [Gasps] No.
Michael: [Chuckles] No?
Lauren: No. Go back to bed and pretend to be asleep, and then I want you to wake up to the wafting fragrance of coffee.
Michael: And then I see you like this, and then we forget about that coffee for...a very long time.
Lauren: [Laughing] No. That's not the plan. We've got meetings today.
Michael: Oh, I know, but we have so much time still, and you are so utterly, utterly irresistible.
Colin: [Sighs] Curve of a cheek atop a slender ivory pedestal.
Jill: Poetry, Colin? Really?
Colin: Hey. I was inspired. It's been too long.
Jill: You were the one that ran off to Australia.
Colin: Well, now I'm back. Couldn't stay away.
Jill: And why is that?
Colin: Isn't it obvious? I missed you.
Billy: The banner will change with each unique hit on the various websites. I got the graphic department coming up with five different looks so it doesn't get stale.
Victoria: Yeah, but that's essentially five different fees.
Billy: Yeah, but it's important to keep the customer, you know, excited about it, especially around valentine's day. I mean, come on, Vick, look at this. This is gonna send guys everywhere to pick up this body spray. They're gonna love it.
Victoria: Yeah, well, women do most of the shopping, so it will send them, too.
Billy: Yeah, but single guys. You know, guys that might need a little help figuring out, you know...
Victoria: Figure out what? What? How to score? Is that what you were thinking? Try to figure out how to score?
Billy: I was wondering how long it was gonna take to ease into the Reed conversation. No ease needed.
Victoria: No. No, we're not talking about Reed. I made it clear that we are not talking or thinking about what I walked in on. Thank you.
Billy: Okay, they were kissing. In the grand scheme of things, not a big deal.
Victoria: It is a big deal when he was supposed to be babysitting his brother and sister. It's a big deal when that girl didn't have permission to be over at the house. And it's a big deal because her parents probably didn't know that she was unsupervised. And if they did, it's still a big deal, Billy.
Billy: Yes, you were very clear that you did not appreciate what Reed did.
Victoria: No, I reacted like a mother who walked in on her 15-year-old making out on the sofa. And I paid the price, okay? Reed was mortified by my reaction, and he basically accused me of being stone cold.
Devon: All right. Hey, yeah, go ahead and do that, and then, um, if you can, move 5% to the other fund and e-mail me with confirmation. All right, perfect. Thank you.
Lily: We thought we'd find you at home.
Cane: Yeah, it's good to see you up and around.
Devon: Yeah, I was -- I was getting a little stir crazy at home, and stitch said I was good to go, so I thought I'd get back to work.
Lily: Well, are you sure that you want to be here?
Devon: I'm just stopping by. But what are you guys doing here? Why are you looking for me? Is, uh, is something going on?
Devon: Should I be worried?
Lily: No, no, no. Nothing terrible.
Devon: Yeah? You're not here to talk about, uh...?
Lily: No, I'm not here to talk about her. No.
Devon: Good. So you brought me good news, then.
Lily: Um, yeah. I mean, depends how you look at it, but we think so.
Lily: Yeah, it started as a last-minute thing. Thank you. So brash & sassy lost their model, so Jill called.
Cane: And the shoot was perfect and we're thrilled with the results, so the next logical thing to do was give this beautiful girl a contract.
Lily: Yeah, so I am the brand ambassador for brash & sassy's new men's line.
Devon: Wow. Congratulations.
Devon: That's fantastic.
Lily: Thank you. It's just that it's a commitment, you know. There's a lot of traveling, there's media. It's not just random photo shoots every couple of months.
Devon: Sure, yeah. But, I mean, I'm sure you're up to it. I couldn't be more proud of you, man. This is -- it's great.
Lily: Thank you. I just, um, I can't do this new job and manage the club.
Devon: Well, of course you can't. That's why you're here, right? To resign in person? And I accept.
Lily: Are you sure?
Devon: Yeah, I'm very sure. Of course. Only some people have a light that translates on screen, and I think that you're one of those people, you know? This is the job that you deserve to have, Lily. Wouldn't you agree?
Cane: You are 100% right, because she is a natural.
Devon: See? You would be nuts to waste this gift you have.
Lily: I know. Thank you. I just -- I-I hate that I'm leaving you in the lurch.
Devon: No, you're not at all. Come on. You have an amazing thing on your plate. Change is progress, and you have to go after it no matter how difficult it may seem.
Lily: Yeah. It is exciting, but it's also a bit daunting.
Devon: Yeah, but, I mean, you'll always have our support. Right, Cane?
Lily: And look, same here. My first role is sister, so I always have your back.
Devon: I know you do. I appreciate that.
Lily: Yeah. Well, we'll let you get back to moguling, but I will put out feelers for my replacement, and I'll contact some recruitment agencies about hotel management.
Cane: No, no, you won't have time for that. It's okay.
Devon: Yeah, Cane's right. I got this. As of right now, you have nothing to do with the club, okay? 'Cause I'm sure your schedule's already filling up, right?
Cane: Absolutely. She has a lot to do before the valentine's day launch, so...
Devon: Oh, nice. It's gonna happen on your guys' anniversary?
Devon: That's cool. You'll be a modeling star on the same day you became Cane's wife.
Colin: So, a few texts just didn't quite do it. I need more contact. I need to know more. More, more, more.
Jill: Okay, okay, I've been really, really busy with brash & sassy.
Jill: Especially the product launch.
Colin: With Lily as the face of the company?
Jill: That's the men's line.
Colin: Well, Cane must be thrilled about that.
Jill: I think he's got mixed feelings about that.
Colin: What? That the world's gonna be eyeing his wife? I got to have a talk to him. You know, when you're married to a gorgeous, successful woman, it's something you get used to. Like father, like son.
Jill: No, I think it's the shift in the balance of power. You know, he's always been the one with the long hours and the unexpected requests, and now it's Lily, and marriage is kind of like a dance, isn't it?
Colin: So now he's worried that Lily might want to lead.
Jill: I just think he needs to be reminded, you know, that every married couple needs to compromise a little bit.
Colin: Second verse, same as the first. Look, when you're married to a gorgeous, successful woman, well, you know, let's face it. We are enlightened men. You guys go out, you're capable of conquering the world. Ah, but you can also bring home the bacon at the same time.
Jill: You do love my bacon, don't you?
Colin: And every other part of you.
[Cell phone chimes]
Colin: Uh... oh. I got to go out.
Jill: What? Where are you going? What about this "how much I missed my wife" part?
Colin: I'm gonna show you just how much when I get home. In the meantime, I've got to take care of this. I'm about to make us this much richer.
Lauren: You know, no. I actually do have to go. I've got to go sign papers. Jack is gonna be waiting.
Michael: Ah, ah, ah. You let Jack wait.
Lauren: Yeah, but, honey, honey, I need this deal. I really need this deal to go through.
Michael: Jack wants this just as much as you do.
Lauren: Really? [Chuckles] How much do you want it?
Michael: [Sighs] You have no idea.
Lauren: I kind of think I do.
Gloria: Do you have to zip so loudly?
Jack: I don't like it any better than you do. How did this happen?
Gloria: God, I don't even remember getting this room.
Jack: Well, obviously one of us did, which means somebody saw us come up here together. Oh, dear God.
Gloria: Oh, stop being so melodramatic, Jack. Nobody cares what either one of us did last night or who. People drink. [Sighs] It's not exactly newsworthy. [Chuckles] Unless, of course, you haven't had a drink in a while. Several years. You decided to let it go. [Laughs]
Jack: My tolerance was down, yes. For booze.
Gloria: Oh, God, I remember we were in the elevator.
Gloria: I think I was bragging about a new yoga pose I mastered.
Jack: Didn't I just say stop?
Gloria: God, so many drinks.
Jack: Obviously neither of us were in our right mind.
Jack: Before anything happened, before we... before... oh, dear God.
Jack: Nothing happened.
Gloria: No, nothing happened except for what happened.
Jack: No matter how many drinks I had, no matter how low my tolerance, there is no way I would ever possibly --
Gloria: Except you did, Jack! You really did! We did! And I'm not exactly thrilled about it, either. Oh, come on. It was just sex.
Jack: Oh, God.
Gloria: Since when did you become such a prude? Aren't you the guy who slept with one woman the same day he's married another woman and then you slept with your father's wife? Oh, God. [Sighs] We are two consenting unattached adults.
Jack: [Sighs] How did this happen?
Gloria: Oh, you keep saying that. We know how it happened. I kept doing shots that you kept buying. Oh, and then you decided it'd be a brilliant idea to celebrate the Fenmore deal, which I helped make happen.
Jack: I'll tell you this. It will be a long time before I do any more celebrating, if ever.
Gloria: Oh, you know who won't be celebrating with you? Me. So this thing stays in this room. Not a word. Not a syllable. And if you ever look at me again the way you looked at me last night --
Jack: We are moving on. Not another word of that.
Gloria: All right, all right. We'll forget that this ever happened.
Jack: Nothing happened!
Gloria: Something happened, because I've got bite marks on my shoulders!
Jack: We're putting this past us.
Gloria: We are not to discuss this ever again with anybody. Believe me. But I want your word, Jack.
Jack: Oh, no one's ever going to hear this from me. I will go to my grave with this secret.
Gloria: I want your word, Jack.
Jack: Wild horses couldn't drag it out of me.
Victoria: Yes, we love the proofs. You did a wonderful job. Thank you again.
Billy: That was a nice pivot, the phone call. That's cool.
Victoria: Look, we need to, uh, lock in Lily's personal appearances as soon as possible.
Billy: All right, so this is how it's gonna go? I'm gonna talk and you're gonna pretend to ignore me? All right, so listen, Reed was out of line. He had no business insulting you just because he got busted.
Victoria: It's not just that he got busted. He was defending you, his "bro," his role model. And my son basically called me out for trying to handle him on my own without your input, and I end up looking like the bad guy.
Billy: [Sighs] Vick, the last thing I want to do is make things more difficult for you and Reed.
Victoria: Well, that's what you're doing continually. And why? We're not married. Reed isn't your son. And yet here you are --
Billy: Trying to help, because I was a 15-year-old boy once. I know what he's going through. He might say that he's defending me, but really he's mad at you for embarrassing him in front of a girl.
Victoria: He should have never invited that girl over without asking, and they sure as hell shouldn't have been making out on the sofa.
Billy: That's what teenagers do. They make out on sofas.
Victoria: Yeah, they do, and their mean mom stopped them. So I guess we both did our jobs.
Billy: Okay, so when it happens again, are you gonna lose it?
Victoria: Do you think that's what I'm doing? You think -- you think I lose it?
Billy: You overreacted, okay, which happens. I get it.
Victoria: Look, Billy, this is none of your business.
Billy: You're focusing on me right now, and what you should be doing is trying to fix things with your son.
Victoria: Yeah, well, Reed is more than welcome to apologize.
Billy: Yeah, well, I think that's a long way off, okay? You called him out in front of a girl. You embarrassed him in front of a girl. I don't think he's gonna forgive you any time soon.
Reed: Hey. How's it going?
Zoey: Wow. Thought your mom would have locked you in the basement by now.
Reed: Yeah, she's such a drama queen.
How big was the freak-out? Zoey said it was massive. Like, your mom was a total witch.
You saw it, right?
Reed: Saw what?
Zoey: You'll love it. I took a grab of your mom off your page. [Chuckles] [Chuckles]
Jill: Oh, Jack! I was just about to call you!
Jack: I was just on my way to the office. Can we catch up later?
Jill: No, no, no. You'll want to hear this. I got word from one of your potential donors for the foundation that, despite the drama at the benefit, your mission has not been abandoned.
Jack: Fantastic. Can you shoot me an e-mail? I --
Jill: Sweetie, sweetie, sweetie, come have some coffee with me. You really look like you could use it. Now, I'm gonna order myself a bloody Mary. I hope that's not in bad taste since we're discussing foundation business.
Jack: No, it's f-- it's fine.
Jill: What the hell is wrong with you? Did you sleep last night?
Jack: Yeah, I slept. I'm just mulling over the particulars of our agreement. That's why I have to get to the office -- to meet with Lauren.
Jill: With Lauren? About?
Jack: Finalizing the contracts for my stake in Fenmore's.
Jill: What are you talking about? Mnh-mnh. Mnh-mnh. Lauren can't make this kind of a deal. I own half the company.
Jack: Do you have to yell?
Jack: If Eric Forrester hadn't gotten involved, we'd be having a very different conversation.
Jill: Eric Forrester? What does he have to do with this?
Jack: Enough that I only got 49% instead of 51%. Lauren still has full control of Fenmore.
Jill: Which I am supposed to be sharing with her. But apparently she's chosen to ignore that.
Jack: I assumed you were in the loop. Fenmore's was having some real financial issues.
Jill: I had no idea we were looking for investors. She could have come to me. I would have given her the capital and she knows that!
Jack: You guys work this out between yourselves. How you split up the 51% is your business. I don't really care. But the deal is done. No new negotiations.
Jill: Oh, yeah? Well, we'll see about that.
Michael: I missed you.
Lauren: It was just a shower, baby.
Michael: Mnh-mnh. I'm talking about over the last couple of weeks where you've been so consumed with work, pulling away because you're stressed out about all the problems at Fenmore's.
Lauren: I'm so sorry.
Michael: No, no, no. My point being is now that I've got you back, I do not intend on ever letting you go again.
Lauren: And I promise not to pull away again. I panicked. I wanted to fix everything all by myself, you know? It was, uh, pride and shame.
Michael: Oh, sweetie. It's over. Look, because you, my love, can conquer anything, and I just want to be there when it happens.
Michael: Come here.
Lauren: Okay, baby, can you just go to your client? [Laughs] I love you so much, but I really need to finish getting ready, okay?
Michael: Okay, all right. I'm going, I'm going, I'm going.
Lauren: All right.
Michael: But wait.
Lauren: [Laughing] Okay, honey.
Michael: [Sighs] Life is good.
Lauren: [Inhales deeply]
Lily: Well, that was almost convincing with Devon. You actually seem like you're excited about me modeling again.
Cane: You know how I feel.
Lily: I know. I was just hoping it would get better.
Cane: It -- look, it will. I'm just -- I'm just having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that Billy's my business partner and he offered you a contract without consulting me. That's it.
Lily: Cane, I don't have to do this.
Cane: Yes, you do.
Lily: No, I don't, not if it comes between us.
Cane: Sweetheart, this is an amazing opportunity for you.
Lily: Yeah, but I don't want this to be something that we suffer through.
Cane: We're not gonna suffer through this, okay? We won't, all right? I'm happy for you. It's just my business ego took a little bit of a hit, you know? I'll talk to bill. I'll talk to Jill.
Lily: I know, but I'm your wife. I care about how you feel.
Cane: Do you want to know how I really feel? I feel like you are the best thing that has ever happened to me, and we've been through some rough times, and I do not want this to be one of them, okay? And when you are happy, I am happy.
Lily: Are you sure?
Cane: Does this face not look sure?
Lily: No, you do. You really do.
Cane: You know, and Devon is right. You know, it is awesome that your career takes off and kicks into high gear on our anniversary and the world gets to fall in love with you on the same day that you promised me that you will always be mine.
Devon: Hey. Can you guys get a room?
Devon: I just got off the phone, and it seems like I'll have no problem finding someone much better than you to manage the club.
Lily: Oh, thank you. That's very nice of you. You're so sweet.
Devon: You're very welcome. No, seriously, you need to, uh, you need to be focused on what's coming up, anyway. You have an amazing adventure ahead of you.
Lily: Yeah. I hope so. I think so.
Cane: Hey, I know so.
Devon: Well, you got to try. Maybe I'll follow your lead.
Cane: Uh, I think male models have abs, so...
Devon: That's very funny. I'm talking about my life. I'm talking about getting my life together. It's been off track for a long time.
Lily: Hey, you can't blame yourself for what happened between you and her.
Devon: I'm not -- I'm -- it's been off track way before that when I was bouncing around between business and school and music and living in a janky house and I had Katherine's money fall in my lap, went to owning buildings, having people call me Mr. Hamilton, and tabloids knowing my name just because of my bank account.
Lily: Well, then you bought GC buzz.
Devon: I sure did, and I see the irony in what I got for my money -- a TV tabloid for a wife.
Cane: Hey, hey, you've done good things with your money.
Devon: Yeah, but it's writing a check. What have I done personally?
Lily: Hey, don't beat yourself up.
Devon: I'll try not to. Um, I just need to get back to work, but I'll figure things out.
Lily: Well, if you ever want to talk about it...
Devon: I don't. Don't you guys have to be somewhere?
Cane: Yeah, she does. Come on.
Lily: Ohh. The boss is harsh, but he's handsome.
Cane: Hey, she's just saying it 'cause it's true.
Lily: [Laughs] Wish me luck.
Devon: You don't need luck. Just let your light shine. You'll be fine.
Lily: Thank you.
Devon: Congratulations again.
[Cell phone chimes]
Lily: Everything okay?
Cane: [Sighs] I can't go to brash & sassy with you.
Lily: What happened?
Cane: My father's back.
Victoria: So you say that teens do things like making out on the sofa with random girls.
Billy: I don't think she was random.
Victoria: Moms set boundaries, and kids learn to deal. That's just how it works, Billy.
Billy: Okay, but here's the thing. If you freak out over something like this, how do you expect him to come to you with anything that matters?
Victoria: That's what you want, isn't it? You want him to come to you for all the big stuff like sex?
Billy: Well, if he needs me, then I will be there for him. But it'd be really nice if he could count on his mother for things that aren't sex-related.
Victoria: Well, Reed knows that he can come to me.
Billy: Vick, he's a 15-year-old kid in a new school just trying to fit in, and you made him feel like a jerk in front of a girl that he likes. If you're not careful, this is gonna end up like Reed and J.T. He's gonna run. And where does he go this time? He's got nowhere else to run to, okay? You're it. You got to let him know that you're there for him. Let him know that you're on his side.
Lily: Hi. So sorry I'm late.
Billy: It's okay. You're -- you're right on time. I'll let you two get to work, okay?
Reed: So, I need you to delete that for me.
Zoey: Why? It's funny, don't you think?
Reed: My mom can be a pain, but she's not that bad.
Zoey: I'm defending you. That was totally unfair last night.
Reed: I don't need you defending me. Plus, I mean, my mom runs a company. She doesn't need that out there.
Zoey: Okay, now you're being weird. It's not like I post pics for business people. No one's gonna see it except, you know, friends, kids at school. Lighten up. It's funny.
Reed: My face is in it.
Zoey: I didn't think you'd mind.
Reed: It's because you don't know me.
What's his problem?
Gloria: I will just settle for you treating me to another one of these.
Jack: You know what, Gloria? You're a sport.
Jack: I will not only treat you to one of these. I will join you. I just play by the rules. You have to break them all the time.
Gloria: I am not going to sit here and be insulted this -- [Screams]
Gloria: [Chuckles] Hello.
Michael: Gloria. You spent the night here? Have you moved out of Kevin's place?
Gloria: [Clears throat]
Michael: Oh, good morning, Jack. I just left Lauren. She's very excited about today. I assume you're on your way to meet her.
Jack: Uh, yeah, exactly.
Michael: You're not having second thoughts?
Jack: No. Why would you say that?
Michael: Uh, you seem distracted. You're not coming down with something?
Jack: No, no, no. I've just got other business on my mind, and there's not enough caffeine on earth right now.
Michael: [Chuckles] Burning the midnight oil. That explains why you look so, um... [Chuckles]
Jack: Yeah, exactly. Uh, have a good day. Gloria.
Lauren: [Sighs] Jill!
Jill: Morning, sis. Do you have time for a chat?
Lauren: Um, I'm running out.
Jill: A meeting.
Lauren: Yes, and I'm so late.
Jill: At Jabot. That meeting can wait.
Michael: Long night?
Gloria: [Chuckles] Not at all.
Michael: [Inhales deeply] Gloria, just tell me. Tell me what you did. Tell me now.
Gloria: What are you talking about?
Michael: Clearly you spent the night here last night.
Gloria: Yeah, actually, I did. I met a friend. We reminisced.
Michael: Oh, really? What's his name?
Gloria: [Scoffs] Actually, it was a woman, if you must know. Must you always assume the worst?
Michael: Yes. Experience has taught me that's the safest bet. So why didn't you just take a cab home last night?
Gloria: [Chuckles] Home, home. I have no home! I've been evicted from your place and made to feel like a nuisance at Kevin's. So while he's away for work, I thought I'd give Chloe some space, make it easier for both of us.
Michael: Did your friend stay here, as well?
Gloria: He had someplace to go.
Michael: And there we go.
Michael: That "she" turned back into a "he."
Gloria: I don't know what you mean.
Michael: Hmm, well, at least it's nice to see that you haven't let this mess with Jeffrey put a crimp in your social life.
Gloria: Social life. I have no social life, not the way you mean. And even if I did, it's none of your damn business.
Michael: Oh. My appointment's here.
Gloria: Ah! You will apologize to me later. And by the way, you are so wrong about last night.
Reed: What's up?
Zoey: Apology beverage?
Zoey: I didn't mean to mess with you. I'm really sorry, you know?
Reed: Yeah, I-I appreciate that.
Zoey: Are we okay?
Reed: Since you went to so much trouble.
Zoey: I did have to stand at the counter for a whole two minutes.
Reed: Wow. Commitment. I'm impressed.
Reed: So, would you, um, would you want to hang out again sometime?
Zoey: On your couch? Yeah, your mom would love that.
Reed: My mom can't control me. I mean, she can tell me to, like, take out the trash and watch my brother and sister and stuff but she can't tell me who to like.
Zoey: Wait. You like me?
Reed: I didn't mean you necessarily.
Zoey: Or you did.
Reed: Maybe I did. A little.
Victoria: There will be television interviews, electronic press kits, social media buys. We are going all out.
Lily: Not to be greedy, but the twins would die over bus stop posters.
Victoria: Oh, yeah. There will be plenty of those. And billboards. How do the twins feel about billboards?
Lily: [Chuckling] This is amazing. I can't believe it's happening. I didn't realize how much I missed modeling. I can't start soon enough.
Victoria: That's great, because you're gonna need that kind of energy. You're gonna have personal appearances, wall to wall interviews, um, online events. You're gonna be very busy on valentine's day. Your v-day mission as we like to call it.
Lily: Uh, valentine's? I-I know that's the start of the launch, but I just thought that would be media and print.
Victoria: Well, Lily, you're not just a face. You're the face. You're our brand ambassador, and that's a very crucial day to the line. Is that gonna be a problem? Because if so, you need to tell me now.
Cane: All right, what are you doing here?
Colin: Is that any way to talk to your dear, old dad?
Cane: All right, what are you doing here, dear, old dad?
Colin: I live here. Unless, of course, Jill's booted me out. I must check upstairs to see whether my stuff's still in the closet.
Cane: She didn't mention you were coming back from Australia, and I thought your hub was now in Chicago.
Colin: And now it's Genoa city. I mean, I'm here with my son, my wife, and my grandkids.
Cane: Huh. So you're here for the kids. That's good to know.
Colin: And some news. I understand that, um, Lily's working for brash & sassy.
Cane: Yeah, she's doing a little bit of modeling for us.
Colin: Modeling? I think you're being modest. Brand ambassador. Lofty title. How's that working out for the two of you?
Cane: Lily's doing what she wants to do, and I support her every step of the way.
Colin: [Chuckles] You know, that may work for the suckers on the street, but it doesn't work for your dear, old dad.
Reed: I'm not skipping.
Billy: I didn't ask.
Reed: There's a pep rally at school. It's not mandatory.
Billy: Oh, you didn't want to scream and cheer and wave a banner?
Reed: It's not really my thing.
Billy: Yeah, me neither.
Reed: Did you tell mom you were coming to see me?
Billy: Nope. But I'm not gonna lie if she asks me. [Sighs] I wanted to come and see how you're doing.
Reed: Why? Because I was completely humiliated by my mother in front of a girl? God, it feels like I was pantsed in front of the whole school or something.
Billy: Your mom reacted like a mom. I'm sure Zoey's mom would have reacted the same way.
Reed: You seriously think that? You really believe another mother would freak out and order people around and cause a complete scene? I mean, you don't think another mom could have managed to save their kid's dignity like even a little bit?
Billy: Reed, okay, your mother is new to this whole rebellious-teen thing. You got to give her a little bit of time.
Reed: Why? So she can think of new ways to ruin my life?
Billy: Hey, your mother loves you.
Reed: It doesn't seem like she does. Seems like she loved me when I was 5 and took orders, but now that I'm an adult, it's like she --
Billy: [Sighs] Okay. You're not, okay? You're getting there. But you're 15 years old, man. Let's be honest.
Reed: Want to see what mom started? Here.
Billy: [Sighs] Okay, that's excessive. Your mom's not exactly chill, but this is --
Reed: You can pretend that it wasn't a big deal, but what she did to me, I'm never gonna forgive her.
Victoria: Is this about the club? Do you have, um, valentine's day events that you're committed to?
Lily: No, no. I've resigned effective immediately.
Victoria: Oh, that's good. Well, um, do you have some plans with Cane? I mean, given his position, I'm sure he'd understand.
Lily: No, I just -- I-I didn't know that you would need me in person on that day, so, um... but it's fine. It's great.
Victoria: Uh, you know, I get it. It's hard to balance family and work, but we need you here fully committed, so I don't want to apply pressure, but if there's a problem or if you're uncomfortable with something, we need to know now so that we know what our next move will be.
Lily: No, look, like I said before, I-I want this. I do. I just... I'm a little scared, you know, that things might fall through the cracks with my personal life, 'cause I just -- I gave Cane a really hard time about missing the kids' events before, and now that might be me, so I know I'll miss some bedtimes and some dinners and valentine's day, but I really want this, you know. Just thinking about it makes me happy, and I know Cane wants that for me, too, so... whatever you need, whatever I can do, I-I will do it. I'll do it.
Cane: All right, look, you can save the wise, old man routine for somebody else, 'cause I know exactly who you are, okay?
Colin: It's just an observation. I mean, I know you better than you -- you care to admit. Also, you've inherited a rather large ego from someone that we both know and love.
Cane: Okay, listen, I'm not lying to Lily, all right? She already knows I have concerns about this.
Colin: Well, you've told her the truth. Your version of it, anyway.
Cane: And we have our doubts, but we're working through it, okay?
Colin: Does this mean that you'll simply roll over and go with her plan?
Cane: Good God, dad. We both work at brash & sassy, okay? I happen to help run the company, so it's not like we're not gonna see each other.
Colin: No, you'll see her. You'll see her when she does shoots. You'll see her when she walks the red carpet. You'll see her when she flies off into --
Cane: What are you doing here?! Why are you trying to get me all worked up, all right?! If you want to know what's wrong, just ask me and I'll tell you! I'm worried her new job is going to mean our entire family has to adjust, but I'm not gonna tell Lily what she can and what she cannot do, okay?!
Colin: I assume that somewhere along the line she's gonna be suitably compensated.
Cane: Okay, all right. So that's what all this is about, all right? You have some loan you want from her or some scam you want her to invest in, okay? Let me explain it to you. The checks aren't rolling in yet, all right, so there's no point in trying to hit her up or hit me up for money!
Colin: You have to be a complete idiot here. I'm talking to you man to man, father and son. I know it's a challenge being married to a woman who earns more than you do.
Cane: [Sighs] All right. So that's what this is about. This is about Jill and how rich she is. So now it explains how you can take a little vacation and stay in Australia for so long. Now I get it.
Colin: I can see why you don't want to talk about this. I really do. You know, money -- money's tricky. Love -- that's trickier. The two together make for a very complicated situation. But the upside is that you and I married up. We have smart, intelligent wives that enrich our lives in many, many different ways.
Jill: Not a word from you about this deal you made with Fenmore's? I had to hear it from Jack? Not a word from you, my business partner, about how we were looking for investors? Not a word from you about what dire straits our company was in?
Lauren: Jack only has 49%. I still control Fenmore's.
Jill: Yeah, but that's not the discussion and you know it! I mean, you had no business making a decision like this without consulting me. And Eric Forrester knew about it! I didn't! That's not acceptable!
[Cell phone rings]
Jack: Lauren, it's Jack at Jabot. The contracts are here and ready for your signature. You're late. Is there a problem?
Lauren: I don't owe you a consultation, Jill. I still run this company. You're busy with brash & sassy and your son. I mean, your hands are full. And you've been more than happy to let me do the heavy lifting for months, which means you don't get a vote now. I am saving my company!
Jill: Our company.
Lauren: I am saving Fenmore's! So why don't you just say thank you and walk away? I don't need your approval.
Jill: Oh, honey. The hell you don't.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Devon: I, uh, freed up some money for on-air talent 'cause you are getting a cohost.
Victoria: What happened?
Jack: Jill owns half of Fenmore's, something Lauren failed to consider. Now Jill's ready to blow up the whole deal.
