[Knock on door]

Stop pounding! Just come in!

Phyllis: Hey.

Jack: Hey. Have you seen Lauren?

Phyllis: Howdy doody to you, too, Jack. No, I haven't heard from her. I assumed she was gonna be here.

Jack: Well, obviously she's not.

Phyllis: What's with the attitude? Rough day?

Jack: I'm fine. I just want to finalize this deal if your boss would ever show.

Phyllis: Well, Lauren will be here. She's probably stuck in traffic. Have some water. Relax. Everything will go down as it's supposed to.

Jack: Not if Jill has anything to say about it.

Phyllis: Jill?

Jack: Jill owns half of Fenmore's, something Lauren failed to consider. Now Jill's ready to blow up the whole deal.

Lauren: You can't just walk in here and expect me to call off my agreement with Jack.

Jill: The hell I can't.

Lauren: It's happening, Jill. Get over it.

Jill: Get over it? Get over it?! That's how you talk to your business partner?

Lauren: For months you have been immersed in brash & sassy. Honestly -- honestly, when was the last time you even thought about Fenmore's?

Jill: That doesn't matter. You still can't go behind my back and make a deal like this!

Lauren: I am saving my company!

Jill: Our company! For God's sake, why didn't you come to me? I could have arranged financing!

Lauren: Oh! Through Chancellor Industries? Right. There is no way that Fenmore's is going to become a subsidiary of your company.

Jill: So instead you sell Jack 49%? That was your best option? Do you realize that if this deal goes through, my share is cut in half?

Lauren: Well, you can have 25% of a thriving company or 50% of nothing.

Devon: So this can go. This can go, too. And then if we can reallocate these funds into this department.

Roz: Are you certain this is what you want to do?

Devon: I am. I've given it a lot of thought, and I, uh, I think this needs to happen.

Roz: All right. I'll take these over. I'll send a memo out to the departments, let them know about the changes.

Devon: Thank you, Roz.

Roz: [Sighs] Hilary, uh, hi.

Hilary: Roz.

Roz: I got to, um, go.

Hilary: Let me guess. She's on her way to personnel to drop off my unemployment papers.

Victoria: New York. Uh... new York, new York. Ah, perfect.

Billy: Hey.

Victoria: Hey. Uh, check out the preliminary schedule for the men's line rollout.

Billy: This can wait for a second.

Victoria: No, actually, it can't wait because look, this is red here. It means it can't wait.

Billy: Actually, it can wait. I need your attention, okay? It's about Reed.

Victoria: Is he okay? What happened?

Billy: He's not hurt physically or anything. He's okay. But you might not be after you see... this.

Victoria: "Reed's house. I'd turn back if I were you." What the hell?

Billy: That scene in "Wizard of Oz" when Dorothy and the gang are going towards the wicked witch's castle --

Victoria: Yeah, I know where it's from, Billy.

Billy: I'm just saying that it's a classic, so it shows a little bit of respect.

Victoria: You know what? You're not helping. Why would Reed do this? Was he really that mad at me?

Billy: Actually, Reed didn't do this. Zoey did.

Victoria: Zoey?!

Billy: The girl that he was playing tonsil hockey with on the couch.

Victoria: Yeah, Zoey! Well, you know what? She's officially banned from the house and from hanging out with Reed. Reed does not need friends like that in his life.

Billy: What? You gonna cast a spell on him?

Victoria: That's not funny!

Billy: Okay, I'm just saying. Before you go nuclear, just understand that this is what kids do these days.

Victoria: This is a lot worse than scribbling nasty things on a bathroom stall, Billy.

Billy: Did you do that?

Victoria: You know what? This is gonna go viral.

Billy: Come on, Vick. It's not gonna go viral, unless by "viral" you mean every kid in high school has seen it, then...

Victoria: Which means our distributors and our buyers and even some of our employees are going to be looking at the wicked witch of orchard road and laughing. This is so humiliating!

Billy: Will you snap out of it? This isn't about you.

Victoria: Really? Really? Is that your picture, Billy? Is that you?

Billy: No, it's not. But this is about your son and the price that he is paying because you are overreacting to him just being a normal kid.

Hilary: [Sighs] I just came to get my things. I accept that walking away from everything meant my job, too. I know that this needs to happen. I was wondering what your plans were for GC buzz. You're not selling it or, worse, shutting it down, are you?

Devon: No, it's a great investment, and the staff needs me to keep the show on air so they can afford rent and those expensive craft beers they enjoy so much.

Hilary: [Chuckles] That's good. Uh, I think Roz needs you.

Devon: Hey.

Roz: Sign right here and it's official.

Devon: Sure. Hey, thank you for, uh, expediting things.

Roz: Yeah. No prob.

Devon: There you go.

Hilary: So, hot tip for tonight's show?

Devon: No, it was just some boring budget stuff. I had to, uh, do a little bit of juggling and free up some money so that I can implement a few changes.

Hilary: Sure there's a lot more money left in the budget now that I'm out as host.

Devon: Did business affairs contact you?

Hilary: No, not yet, but I'm expecting their call.

Devon: Well, they're not going to call you.

Hilary: I don't understand.

Devon: You're still under contract. And I expect you to abide by the terms of it. So you still work here.

Jack: When I saw Jill, she peeled out of the club, probably went straight for Lauren's front door. She could put a major wrench in the works.

Phyllis: Lauren has made up her mind. Jill's not gonna stop her.

Jack: Believe me, there's more than one way to nix this thing.

Phyllis: You think Jill would take her to court?

Jack: How do you think she got 50% of Fenmore's to begin with?

[Cell phone chimes]

Jack: Is that Lauren?

Phyllis: No, it's summer. I think that we're talking about a bruised ego. Jill just hates that Lauren did not consult her.

Jack: Wow. Congratulations on paying attention. That's what I just said.

Phyllis: Again with the attitude.

Jack: You're welcome to wait in the reception area.

Phyllis: Does Jill know that I'm working at Fenmore's?

Jack: Yeah. Yeah, why?

Phyllis: That vindictive -- you know what? It's me!

Jack: Would you please stop yelling?

Phyllis: I am the reason that she wants to deep-six this deal. She hates that I'm a part of it. She's looking for a way to get back at me ever since the Billy thing.

Jill: I own half of Fenmore's. It's all here in black and white. It's your signature and my signature.

Lauren: Oh, believe me, I don't need a reminder. I have very vivid memories of being hauled into court and you demanding half of my company. And then you cloned my office furniture, invaded my space, and, oh, my favorite part was walking into my office and finding you and Colin in an intimate moment under my desk. I'm still having nightmares about that!

Jill: And yet with all these memories swirling around in your head...

Lauren: Haunting! Haunting me!

Jill: ...You made a unilateral decision about the future of Fenmore's! You cannot ignore me!

Lauren: Oh, nobody can, Jill. But I made a decision, a smart decision. And if I hurt you, I am so sorry.

Jill: I'm touched. But you know something? My feelings are intact. It's my business sense that is outraged. Why are you so against partnering with chancellor? It's a much better alternative than linking up and selling out to Jack Abbott!

Lauren: I did not sell out! I kept control! We have 51% of the company!

Jill: You had no right to make this deal without involving me!

Lauren: Years ago I went against my gut and I gave you half of Fenmore's. But if you think that I am going to sell my soul for the second time and work for you, never! Now, if you'll excuse me, I am late.

Jill: Oh, not so fast! You talk about those years ago when I received what was rightfully mine, half of the company, but I think that you've conveniently forgotten the most important part -- this contract, which is morally and legally binding!

Lauren: [Sighs]

Jack: Did you really just say that, "that thing with Billy"? I assume you're talking about your affair with Billy.

Phyllis: I didn't mean to upset you.

Jack: And yet you brought up the one most difficult subject for the two of us to broach. Did you really think that would put a smile on my face?

Phyllis: I don't think anything would put a smile on your face today. I am sorry. My mouth was going faster than my mind could edit. Let's just talk about our mutual problem. Jill has multiple reasons to thwart this transaction, but we don't know if she's gonna do that for sure.

Jack: But we do know she's a real threat. You know, I'm -- I'm probably the one who should be tearing up this contract. I don't want to get in the middle of their feud.

Phyllis: Determination is one of your selling points. You have it. Lauren has it. She is not gonna let anything derail this agreement. Both of you are gonna take these companies to new heights together. Unless...

Jack: Unless what? What's going on in that devious mind of yours?

Phyllis: Unless you want to kill this deal. Unless you're looking for a way out because I'm part of the package.

Jack: Believe it or not, Phyllis, everything isn't about you.

Phyllis: But it would put a smile on your face if I wasn't involved?

Jack: You have value in this arrangement. Your platform complements and enhances JabotGo. I'm not about to let personal issues get in the way of profits.

Phyllis: I need to track down Lauren.

Lauren: We're done here.

Jill: No, we're not. Nothing has been decided.

Lauren: There's nothing to decide. Being in the chancellor umbrella is a compromise I am not willing to make. Now, you can take me to court, but I guarantee you that is not gonna be in the best interest of our company in the long run.

Jill: I have no intention of suing you. I am not as litigious as you think I am.

Lauren: Oh, really? Says the woman that just happens to have a seven-year-old legal document in her purse to throw in my face.

Jill: Oh, my God, Lauren! This was to make a point that my opinion matters when it comes to Fenmore's because I own half of it! Now, you can pretend that that's not true, but it is true! And I guarantee you, if the roles were reversed, you would be just as persistent as I'm being!

Lauren: The roles have been reversed! Poaching Cane behind my back, canceling and rescheduling meetings out of spite! I didn't do this to hurt you! I did this so our company would not become extinct! I was justified! Now, I am making this deal no matter what you say or what you do.

Jill: Wow. Have you always been this pigheaded and I just never noticed?

Lauren: Obviously you don't know me as well as you think you do.

Devon: There you go. Thank you.

Roz: Mm-hmm.

Hilary: You want me to stay?

Devon: I want you to honor your contract. There's a difference.

Hilary: But I thought you couldn't stand being around me. I thought you didn't like the person that you were when you were with me.

Devon: Well, we're just gonna be working together, not reconciling. I can handle a few hours a week if you can.

Hilary: Yeah. If you're sure.

Devon: I am sure, yeah. I can also admit that most of GC buzz's success is due to you. And I may not agree with the direction you take the show all the time, but you do have instincts to, uh, get viewers to tune in. And there may be somebody out there who can give me the same results, but I think that right now we could use a little bit of stability, so...

Hilary: Especially when news of our divorce hits the media. It's gonna blow up.

Devon: Yeah, why add another act to the circus?

Hilary: [Scoffs] This is a very different conversation than I was imagining on my drive over here.

Devon: Well, I just want things to be civil, especially when I tell you about the, uh, adjustments I plan on making.

Hilary: Adjustments?

Devon: Yeah, you know, the budget I was going over with Roz, I, uh, freed up some money for on-air talent because you are getting a co-host.

Hilary: Oh. Well, if you think that that will work.

Devon: I think that you're gonna make it work.

Hilary: Did you have someone in mind?

Devon: I did. She's right there.

Billy: Reed was mortified at crimson lights. Those two girls from his high school making fun of him for the meme, for having a mom who totally lost it.

Victoria: I wasn't that bad.

Billy: You kinda were.

Victoria: [Sighs] Okay, well, if I had to do it again, I guess I'd do things differently. I guess I'd tone it down a little bit. I guess Reed's pretty upset with me.

Billy: More like totally bummed. And it's 10 times worse because he's a new kid at school. So now he's known as the witch's son, not the ripping guitar player that he should be known for, and that's -- you know, he's in a tough spot.

Victoria: [Sighs] I'm ruining my son's life.

Billy: No, no, that's a little strong.

Victoria: Yeah, but that's how he sees it, isn't it?

Billy: Yeah. But, I mean...

Victoria: And, of course, it took you to point it out to me. Billy, I've just been so in my own head. I didn't realize how hurt he was. What if he -- what if he decides that he wants to move to Warsaw with J.T.? Did I drive my own son off the continent?

Billy: Hey, hey, hey. Stop. Don't overreact, okay? This can be fixed.

Victoria: Really? And I suppose you're gonna tell me how, aren't you? You know, just because you have a "world's best dad" coffee mug doesn't mean that you have all the answers, Billy.

Billy: Hey, don't take your frustrations out on me, okay? You know what? Vick, you should try sniffing one of these.

Victoria: [Sighs]

Billy: Yes. Lavender, okay? This is good for relaxation. Or pine. This is good to alleviate stress. They totally work.

Victoria: You know, if I can broker million-dollar deals and acquisition fortune 500 sharks, I can handle some adolescent angst.

Billy: I wouldn't count on it. High school is complicated, especially these days. Everything moves at a zillion miles an hour. They're all looking down at their screens getting updates. Whatever happens in first class, everybody knows about it by second class. There's no privacy. They live to put each other on blast.

Victoria: So I guess a hug and milk and cookies isn't gonna work. You know, it used to do the trick when he was 5.

Billy: Oh, he's not 5 anymore.

Victoria: Okay, you know what? So then when he comes home from school, I'll sit him down and we'll talk it out.

Billy: Well, you know, he, uh, could still be at crimson lights.

Victoria: What?! Is that where you saw him?! He wasn't in school?! Okay, what was he doing at crimson lights during school hours, Billy?

Billy: He wasn't skipping. There was a pep rally, and attendance was optional. He opted out.

Victoria: Okay. So maybe I'll just -- I'll head over and see if I can catch him.

Victoria: [Sniffs] [Sighs] Yeah, that is better.

Billy: Told you.

Victoria: Now, this might seem a little bit awkward since I knocked your parenting skills, but I have to ask you for a favor.

Billy: Sure. What is it?

Victoria: Something that will prove to Reed that I'm not as bad as he thinks I am.

Billy: Whatever I can do to help.

Mariah: Hey, boss.

Devon: Hey.

Mariah: Hello, Hilary.

Hilary: Hello, co-host.

Mariah: Oh. So you two talked.

Devon: We did talk, and she is aware of the new dynamic.

Mariah: And you're cool with it?

Hilary: Well, I don't have a choice in the matter. I'm under contract.

Mariah: Right. Are you sure you don't want me to be, you know, kind of on-the-street reporter, that way I wouldn't have to be in studio? Might reduce the safety risks.

Devon: Listen, you guys both bring very different flavors to this show, and that's what I made this decision -- to give it some balance, okay? You can cover the gossip, scandals, and dirt. You can cover the feel-good human interest stories. And the plus of having you here is it will ensure Hilary's pieces have a morsel of truth.

Mariah: I didn't sign up to be a fact checker.

Hilary: And I don't need a babysitter.

Devon: Well, the bottom line is, I trust Mariah to follow her moral compass more than I trust you. And I'm not asking you to be a babysitter, okay? I know that you'll stand up for what's right and you'll flag what you find inappropriate. And I expect you to have an open dialogue about her concerns.

Hilary: Understood.

Devon: Great. I also expect you guys to play nice, especially in front of the staff.

Mariah: No problem.

Hilary: Yes, of course.

Devon: Good. I have a meeting to get to, but I'll be back in time for the show because tonight we're going live for a special broadcast to introduce Mariah as the new co-host.

Mariah: Well, this is very awkward.

Hilary: We have a show to produce. Whatever our differences, we need to work together.

Mariah: That is, until you stab me in the back and take the whole show for yourself.

Hilary: Is that the new script that you're working on?

Mariah: Yeah, I was just looking over the final edit.

Hilary: Can I see it?

Mariah: Of course.

Hilary: Okay, uh, the intro needs a little bit of work. I like this. This is good. We can just get rid of all of that.

Mariah: I think that's a good idea.

Jack: If you're looking for Ashley, she's in a meeting.

Billy: I'm not. I was just with, uh, Stacy in finance. She was the one on my to-do list. That didn't sound right, did it? Uh, no, it's the first of the month. I wanted to make sure we paid our rent on time.

Jack: Oh, good for you. I'll have Stacy arrange for direct deposit, save you the trip in the future.

Billy: Save you from running into me, huh?

Jack: A win/win.

Billy: Well, now that I got you here, Jack, uh, according to coffee cart gossip, you're gonna be doing business with Fenmore's.

Jack: Yeah, that's what they say.

Billy: Well, I don't have to tell you.

Jack: What? That Phyllis works for Fenmore? Yes, I'm aware of that.

Billy: Don't jerk her around again, okay?

Billy: You know, this could take awhile. That elevator's out of order, so you can take the stairs if you'd like.

Jack: Well, you're done with your work on this floor, and you've certainly done your good deed for the day -- gotten the big bad wolf to go easy on little red riding hood.

Billy: Oh, no, she can handle herself.

Jack: And yet here you are speaking on her behalf.

Billy: Trying to appeal to your better nature, Jack. Why don't you look past your hurt and see the sacrifice that Phyllis is making? She left Jabot, a job that she loves, in order to start fresh. Yeah, I'm sure a part of that was for herself, but I'm guessing most of that was for you because she knows that her presence is a painful reminder for you, yet she cares enough to walk away. And now because of circumstances out of her control, she is back in your orbit, so I'm just hoping that you can be professional about this.

Jack: So what you really want to say is let Phyllis off the hook.

Billy: Would it kill you?

Jack: Gee, I don't know. I guess I'd still have you to blame.

[Elevator bell dings]

Lauren: [Scoffs] Are both of those yours?

Phyllis: Not if you need them.

Lauren: One. [Laughing] Let me have one.

Phyllis: I just came from Jack's office.

Lauren: Hmm? How upset is he that I missed the meeting?

Phyllis: Well, he has had better days. He figured that Jill tried to quash your plans.

Lauren: And he figured correctly. She stormed over, made demands.

Phyllis: Did she change your mind?

Lauren: Oh, give me a little credit. I'm definitely moving forward.

Phyllis: If the deal is still on the table.

Lauren: Are you telling me that Jack is having second thoughts?

Phyllis: You know, I tried to convince him that it is a viable option, but with Jack, you never know.

Lauren: I will convince him that Jill is not a problem, and I am sure we will get this back on track.

Phyllis: Maybe.

Lauren: Maybe?

Phyllis: Jill is not the only complication that he is concerned about.

Lauren: What do you mean?

Phyllis: You're looking at the other concern.

Lauren: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. We came to an understanding about you working for Fenmore's!

Phyllis: I know. It's going to keep popping up, I'm afraid. When he sees me, it just brings up feelings, none good, I would bet.

Lauren: Well, this is his own fault. He kept chasing away all my other investors. You know what? He's just gonna have to live with it.

Phyllis: Or not.

Lauren: I am so sick of Jill ranting and Jack having second thoughts. I've worked too hard and too long to preserve my family's legacy. I am not gonna lose it. I am not gonna let that happen.

[Glasses clink]

Jill: Lauren didn't even have the decency to tell me about this deal with Jabot. I had to hear about it from Jack.

Colin: Oh. It's terrible. That's an insult.

Jill: I know. It's not just that I was cut out of the loop. It's that Fenmore's was in trouble, you know, and Lauren could have used my expertise. I have good ideas. But did she come to me? No, no, no, of course not. She went to Phyllis and Jack. [Sighs] Honey.

Colin: Hmm?

Jill: You're falling down on the job.

Colin: Oh, sorry.

Jill: Right on the left there. Yeah, yeah. Oh.

Colin: There.

Jill: That's good. See, and -- and here's the truth, all right? Phyllis' business acumen is gonna be a huge asset. I do not deny that. But it's that app. It's that virtual dressing room platform that is gonna be the game changer. My God, it's gonna rake in the cash for Fenmore's.

Colin: That so?

Jill: Well, it would've if Lauren hadn't been so eager to jump into bed with Jabot. If she'd just been willing to wait and let me invest so we could keep it in the family, but instead half the profits are gonna go to --

Colin: Jack Abbott.

Jill: Exactly.

Colin: [Sighs] You got to get angry here. I mean, you -- you have a right to be angry. You got to go after them, Jill, with everything you've got!

Jill: I should. And with my chancellor and brash & sassy profits, I have plenty to fight with.

Mariah: So, would you like the intern to count our lines, make sure they're equal?

Hilary: I know that you're being sarcastic, but I bet there's a part of you that expects me to say yes.

Mariah: Can you blame me?

Hilary: No. Honestly, Mariah, I never should have treated you the way that I did. [Scoffs] Look at where it got me. Uh, you're not going on air like that, are you? Okay, no. You get to hair and makeup right now. I will go to wardrobe. I will let them know what I'm wearing so they can adjust yours accordingly. We don't want to be too matchy-matchy.

Mariah: Yeah, I doubt that'll ever be a problem.

Hilary: [Sighs]

Mariah: I know that we should say "break a leg," but considering what happened last time...

Hilary: Why don't we just say "good show"?

Mariah: Good show to you, too.

Hilary: Mariah, believe it or not, I'm actually looking forward to this.

Roz: All right, script is locked. We are all set.

Hilary: Actually, there is a new segment that we need to add to d block. I will send you the revised pages right now.

Roz: Uh, Mariah didn't mention any changes when she sent the script.

Hilary: Well, Devon called, and he gave me very specific instructions and the new script. And there will be a clip, so I'm sending that to the VTR operator right now.

Roz: Okay, I'll let Mariah know.

Hilary: Oh, you're gonna -- you're gonna ruin the surprise. Roz, I will let you in on the secret if you promise not to spill.

Roz: I promise.

Hilary: It's a -- it's a welcome package for Mariah.

Roz: Nice. And she has no idea?

Hilary: No, not at all. But I guarantee she's never gonna forget it.

Victoria: Hi. Can we talk?

Reed: I can't. I got to get back to class.

Victoria: I know you have a free period. We can go home if you -- if you don't want to be seen with me. It's fine.

Reed: It's -- it's okay. Nobody from school's here. So I guess you heard about the whole witch thing, huh?

Victoria: Yes, I did.

Reed: All right. Give it to me. Go ahead. Fire away.

Victoria: I'm sorry.

Reed: What?

Victoria: I'm sorry that I embarrassed you and your friends made fun of you because of me. I guess with your little brother and sister, it's easy to run their lives the way that I run my company. You know, I-I guess I compartmentalize. Karate and play dates and brushing their teeth and going to bed -- it's all scheduled. So it's easy to dictate what they do. And they like it for the most part because they're little.

Reed: [Sighs]

Victoria: I think I tried to do the same thing with you. I tried to ride you about homework and screen time and school, and I... it was just one epic fail, I think. And I know you're old enough to make your own choices. I'm not always gonna agree with those choices, like the other day with the girl, but in terms of how I react to those choices, I think I can do better.

Reed: All right. Thank you.

Victoria: I want to get to know you, Reed. I want to know what you like. I want to know what you don't like.

Reed: You don't have to do that.

Victoria: No, but I want to, and I want to show you how serious I am.

Reed: How?

Victoria: [Sighs] Well... oh, yes. This is perfect.

Reed: What are you talking about?

Victoria: [Chuckles] There.

Reed: No way. [Gasps]

Jill: Thank you so much for always having my back.

Colin: Sweetheart, I'm always there for you.

Jill: You know something? Lauren practically dared me to take her into court, but I think I found a way, and a better way, to get what I want.

Colin: Well, I have complete faith in you, and I know that you will prevail, which is, uh, one of the reasons I decided that we might do a Victory lap a little bit ahead of time.

Jill: Oh, yummy, yummy.

Colin: Why don't you tell me what's the master plan.

Jill: Jack.

Colin: Jack? Jack wants half your stake.

Jill: Yeah, I know. But listen to this. Lauren went behind my back to make this deal with Jack. And I am resigned to the fact that it's gonna happen, okay? But what is to stop me from going behind her back and talking to Jack myself?

Colin: But wait, wait. [Chuckles] What's this?

Jill: Yep. I'm gonna make an offer to Jack for 49% of Fenmore's. And I don't care how much it costs. I don't give a damn. Even if it's an obscene amount of money, I'm gonna buy Jack out.

Colin: Oh.

Lauren: Thank you so much for rescheduling, Jack. I'm sorry I missed our meeting earlier, but I had a fire to put out.

Jack: Oh, is that what we're calling Jill these days?

Lauren: I believe there's a few other names, as well.

Jack: So, is the fire fully extinguished?

Lauren: Let's call it smoldering. But it's nothing that can't be taken care of, and I'm ready to move forward with our deal... if that's what you still want. Phyllis said something that you were having doubts about her being on the payroll. I really thought we settled that.

Jack: I'm surprised she's not here.

Lauren: She's on a phone call. But if this is going to be a recurring issue, tell me now, because then I'm gonna be the one having reservations about signing our deal.

Mariah: So be sure to check out the sixth annual valentine's day puppy love event, because so many of those dogs are looking for loving forever homes.

Hilary: But aren't they including kittens in the benefit this year, Mariah?

Mariah: Yes, they are. And what were you saying about that earlier?

Hilary: Uh, I don't recall.

Mariah: Come on. She said that it was "purr-fect." Isn't she adorable?

Devon: Hey, how's it going?

Roz: Not "purr-fect," but they're both smiling.

Hilary: Well, it's about that time that we formally welcome my new co-host to the show.

Roz: Hilary's about to introduce that segment that you added.

Devon: What segment?

Roz: She said it was a welcome to the show for Mariah that you wanted to include. She revised the script. She picked a clip.

Devon: She's gonna humiliate Mariah. We need to shut this down right now.

Roz: Too late now.

Hilary: Now, I'm gonna throw my co-host a little curve ball here. Mariah has no idea what's about to happen. But I promise you will be buzzing about it tomorrow. Let's take a look at this clip.

Hilary: And...freeze it right there. Now, I am sure that all of you remember this moment, Mariah's infamous debut as solo host of GC buzz.

Mariah: Hilary, what are you doing?

Hilary: She was humiliated when she tripped and fell.

Mariah: Yes, I was, and I would rather --

Hilary: But it wasn't her fault. It was mine. I have to admit that I was jealous and I was spiteful that Mariah was taking over the show, so I tripped her. And I couldn't sit here side by side day after day without apologizing. So, Mariah, I am sorry. Sincerely. And I hope that one day I might be able to earn your forgiveness.

Reed: Jack white?! Are -- are you kidding me?! He's one of my favorites!

Victoria: I know.

Reed: How?

Victoria: Um, your social media page.

Reed: Wow. I'll totally overlook the invasion of privacy, but I'm so stoked. [Chuckles]

Victoria: Yeah, I know. He's playing at a pop-up concert in Chicago tonight, and Billy knew a guy who knew a guy who was able to get two tickets.

Reed: You got tickets to a pop-up concert in Chicago?

Victoria: Mm-hmm.

Reed: Who are you?

Victoria: What? Come on. I'm not that ancient.

Reed: Look, tonight's a school night.

Victoria: Oh, that's okay. I'm sure that you can finish your homework after school, right?

Reed: Yeah!

Victoria: Yeah.

Reed: Uh, but who am I gonna go with? I mean, it's too late to get a friend from school.

Victoria: Oh.

Reed: What if I-I take Billy?

Victoria: Yeah, I-I think Billy would go with you. You should give him a call.

Reed: Mom, I'm kidding. We're going together, right?

Victoria: Really? You wouldn't be embarrassed to go with your witch of a mother?

Reed: Under one condition. You leave the broom at home.

Victoria: [Chuckles] Okay.

Colin: Uh, I-I'm having second thoughts about encouraging this civil war between you and Lauren.

Jill: Really? Because usually this kind of shenanigans just get your juices going.

Colin: I know. But it's gonna take a lot of cash to buy Jack out.

Jill: Honey, this isn't about money. This is about principle. This is about honor, okay? If Lauren had a modicum of respect for me, none of this would be happening.

Colin: I'm also worried about how deep this rift could go. I mean, you okay with that?

Jill: I don't know. I don't know. But she brought this on herself.

Colin: There's also the business of do you need another distraction in your life? You've got two corporations, me, grandkids. That seems like a pretty full plate. Don't you want to have a life, enjoy things, live a little, cruise, travel?

Jill: Maybe you have a point there. Maybe I should just sleep on it tonight and see how I feel tomorrow.

Colin: Yeah.

Jill: Okay.

Colin: Yeah. [Sighs]

Lauren: Jack and I were tying up a loose end.

Phyllis: Were you working out one heck of a big knot? Or is it still a tangled mess?

Lauren: Jack?

Jack: Your lifeline. Let's make this deal. All that's required is your signature.

Lauren: Does anybody have a pen? Thank you.

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

Victoria: I need you to help me launch the latest weapon in our arsenal.

Jill: I want you to tell me the real reason you don't want me to pursue this deal, and I want you to tell me now.

Devon: That was the last thing that I ever expected.

Neil: And did that change things for you?
