Victoria: We've been running around doing our personal appearances for dare. Right, with our new spokesmodel. It's launch day. I am so far behind, it's crazy. Can I shoot you those cost projections tomorrow? Yes, first thing. I guarantee. All right. You're the greatest. Thanks.

Billy: That's the new press release for the sunscreen.

Victoria: [Sighs] This is gonna have to wait. I can only do 16 things at once. 17 is way too much.

Billy: Crazy day, huh?

Victoria: Yeah. Very productive, though.

Billy: That's true. You should have saw them in Madison, they were going crazy. It's a good thing we brought all those extra samples.

Victoria: Good. Lily's a hit. And, I mean, that photo shoot she did with Jordan? I mean, come on. She was on fire.

Victoria: About that --

Billy: I know, okay? You weren't exactly ecstatic that we went forward with Cane's idea.

Victoria: I just think I should have been consulted.

Billy: And I shouldn't have made that wise crack about... Victor. You being like your father.

Victoria: That's okay. Apology accepted. I know it's never gonna happen again, right?

Billy: No. It won't. Especially once you become the big, bad boss lady.

Victoria: You know, we've been so crazy, I haven't had a chance to call Jill. When does she get back from that cruise?

Billy: This afternoon sometime.

Victoria: Great, I want to get this settled and done.

Billy: You know Cane's not gonna be happy.

Victoria: I know he wants to buy in, but like you said, I can't imagine that he's gonna be able to come up with the money, and he's gonna have a job here, as long as he wants, as long as he accepts that I'm the boss.

Billy: [Sighs]

Victoria: I am gonna own this company again.

[Door slams]

Cane: Jill!

Jill: Hi. I was just about to head into the office.

Cane: Well, just hold up. I need to talk to you for a second.

Jill: Why, did something happen while I was gone?

Cane: Uh, you could say that, or you could say maybe it wasn't the best time to go and take a vacation.

Jill: From everybody I talked to, the launch was spectacular. You managed that without me.

Cane: Well, this has nothing to do with the launch and everything to do with the fact that you decided to sell brash & sassy! To Victoria, Billy, and myself.

Jill: [Chuckles] I have to talk Jack into selling me his Fenmore's stock, and for that, I need cash and lots of it. Besides which, I thought you were on board with that.

Cane: Oh, I was on board. That is, until Victoria changed the plan, decided to cut Billy and me out, and buy the company for herself.

Lauren: [Laughs] 27,000 hits!

Michael: That's a lot of hits.

Lauren: I know! And almost all positive comments. People are loving the merger between Fenmore's and Jabot. It has completely re-energized my whole brand.

Michael: You and Jack and Hilary -- you really clicked. It was a fabulous interview.

Lauren: [Laughs] Thank you. You know who really helped me, though.

Michael: Me.

Lauren: Always, baby. Phyllis.

Michael: Really?

Lauren: Yeah, she gave me some great pointers how to shut Jack down in case he tried to take over the interview.

Michael: [Chuckles] Your secret weapon.

Lauren: Hey, it worked, right?

Michael: Listen. I know you've got a meeting to go to, so I'm gonna drop you off at Jabot.

Lauren: No, no, no, no, no. Honey, come on, let's have another cup of coffee. We have time. This is nice.

Michael: Mm-hmm. Nice try. You're stalling. What's up?

Lauren: Well, wouldn't you stall if the first face you saw off the elevator was Gloria?

Gloria: Huh. [Sighs]

Jack: Who sent you flowers?

Gloria: Jealous?

Jack: Hardly.

Gloria: [Chuckles] Not for me. More's the pity. They're for Phyllis.

Ravi: [Sighs] "To my new friend, Ashley... happy Valentine's Day."

[Knocks on door]

Ashley: Hey, Ravi! You in here?

Ravi: Yeah, uh, one sec! Uh, yeah, come in!

Ashley: So last night, I was brainstorming, and I got a new feature for Jabot...go.

Ravi: Uh, what's wrong?

Ashley: All these hearts.

Ravi: Yeah. What about them?

Ashley: Did you hang all these up?

Ravi: Uh, yeah. Is it -- is it against company policy?

Ashley: Unh-unh.

Ravi: Such a fun holiday, right?

Ashley: [Sighs] Really? I think it's my least-favorite day of the entire year.

Ravi: Oh. Uh... Uh, what -- what do you have against Valentine's Day?

Ashley: Oh, don't get me wrong, it's great for sales. You know, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Christmas -- those are the big three for fragrance purchases, you know?

Ravi: But, um, personally, you don't like it?

Ashley: It's a lot more complicated than that.

Ravi: I have time.

Ashley: Okay, well, um, I guess I could say that it is an over-hyped non-holiday that doesn't really stand for anything, and it's just a way to sell fragrances and chocolates and overpriced restaurant meals.

Ravi: [Scoffs] Geez, are you really that cynical?

Ashley: No. I mean, I haven't completely given up on the concept of romance...

Ravi: But in practice?

Ashley: [Laughs] "In practice, as I have made my way through the world..." I mean, I -- I've discovered that love doesn't really guarantee anything, you know? Seriously. I've seen so many relationships just go south, including my own. My brother's going through -- how many divorces now? I mean... and then my daughter's marriage. In record time, over. All her hopes and dreams went up in smoke.

Ravi: I'm sorry. That must have been really difficult to watch happen.

Ashley: Well, yeah. So, anyway, I guess if, um, I seem kind of sour, it's because cupid's let me down, you know? It's just kind of sapped my faith in romance a little bit. So I guess I just decided along the way that Valentine's Day is good for other people, but, uh... not so much for me.

Gloria: So, I wonder who would be sending your ex-wife flowers for Valentine's Day.

Jack: You opened the card. You tell me.

Gloria: You know, on second thought, why do you care? I thought you were over Phyllis.

Jack: I am.

Gloria: Ooh! Were your ears burning?

Phyllis: I don't know, Gloria, have you been gossiping about me?

Gloria: Me?

Phyllis: Security said I had a delivery.

Gloria: You sure do.

Phyllis: Oh! These are nice.

Gloria: So, who's troy?

Phyllis: None of your business.

Gloria: [Chuckles]

[Door closes]

Billy: No, you want to double your order, that's...terrific! Yeah, no, we'll have it in your hand by the end of the week. Thank you very much. Ciao.

Victoria: Was that Toronto?

Billy: They are ecstatic that we're doing a men's line. They want to know when Lily can make it up to Canada for a personal appearance.

Lily: Amazing. I love Canada. Put me on a plane, I'm there.

Billy: There she is. We're gonna take you up on that.

Victoria: A magnificent job for us today.

Lily: Thank you. There's still a ways to go.

Billy: Yeah, well, how's the online interviews going?

Lily: Great. Just waiting for the P.R. Team to set up the last few, so...

Victoria: Well, take a break. You've earned it.

Lily: Um, actually, I'd rather just power through 'cause I want to make sure my evening's free to spend with Cane.

Billy: Ah, yes. Valentine's Day. Romantic dinner for two.

Lily: Uh, kind of. It's our anniversary.

Victoria: I'm surprised that Cane didn't come out for any of your personal appearances.

Lily: Yeah, I saw him in the beginning, and I think he must have left, and then he's not responding to my texts. I don't know where he is. So do you guys have any idea where he went?

Jill: And what made Victoria think she could just change the terms of the deal? Oh, never mind. Don't tell me. This is right out of Victor's playbook.

Cane: Okay, and ever since she's done this, I've been scrambling to try and come up with the funds to outbid her.

Jill: Which would make you the sole owner? That's very ambitious.

Cane: Well, at least you're just thinking what Billy decided just to come straight out and say, that, you know what, there's probably no way I can come up with the funds.

Jill: That must have been very irritating.

Cane: I wouldn't say it was irritating. I'd say it was more or less humiliating, but, then again, that is your son, the tactless wonder, who just loves to lord his trust fund in my face.

Jill: I can't tell you how distressing this situation is because I swear to you, the whole reason I wanted the three of you to buy it was so that you could afford the buy-in, so you could be on an even playing field with Billy and Victoria.

Cane: Okay, but instead, she's going to give him and me the shaft, which he doesn't care about because we know he's allergic to responsibility.

Jill: Are you telling me that he's wiling to go along with this, then?

Cane: Oh, he's more than willing to go along with it. As a matter of fact, he thinks that she deserves it. But that's just Billy. You know, he's just trying to get a salary so he can avoid making any tough decisions. But you and I both know if Victoria gets that company and Billy and I look even crossways at her, she'll fire us, and where does that leave me? You know where it leaves me? It leaves me without any job security.

Jill: I know why you feel that way.

Cane: Look, Katherine -- she trusted me to run chancellor, and you know what, I think I did a really stellar job. And I was so excited about working with you again. And then you know what you did? You go and do this ridiculous three-way partnership thing, and here I am, I'm working 70-hour weeks. What are they doing? But the fact that they're born with a silver spoon in their mouth and I'm not that I get shunned. I mean, how am I meant to compete with the people in this town when everyone is a millionaire? How?

Jill: That is the story of my life.

Cane: Thank you.

Jill: I had to fight and scrap for every single dime. Meanwhile, all the beautiful people just glided along, racking up win after win.

Cane: Exactly, and now here I am, I have this opportunity to get this fantastic company where I've already proven myself. All I need the cash. And if I get that, then I can be like you. I can be in the big leagues, 'cause that's where you and I belong.

Jill: No argument there.

Cane: So all I'm asking for is a chance to buy brash & sassy! Because, damn it, I have earned it. I have earned this. And let Victoria buy another company.

Jill: How much time do you think you'd need?

Cane: No, hang on a second. Are you saying you'll do this? Are you saying you'll sell it to me and not Victoria?

Michael: Thank you.

Lauren: Wow! 2,000 more hits!

Michael: That's great. Just -- just to get back to Gloria for a minute.

Lauren: [Groans] Must we?

Michael: Listen. If you're still upset at her for trying to undermine you while you were looking for investors...

Lauren: Of course I'm still upset! She's your mother, for God's sake. We took her in after her good-for-nothing husband drained her dry, and how does she repay us? By meddling in our business? By endangering my livelihood?

Michael: Loyalty is not one of Gloria's strong suits.

Lauren: You know what I find the most disturbing? Is that Jack took her on as an employee after her stunt the last time.

Michael: I know. Tainting that face cream...

Lauren: Right! She exposed that company to enormous liability, and Jack lost his job.

Michael: Yes. Yes. I remember it in all its gory details, believe me.

Lauren: So why would Jack give her a job, and what did she do to get it? Because if those two are colluding against me, I need to know it now.

Michael: Or maybe this is one of those situations where the simplest answer is also the correct one. Gloria was broke, she needed a job, and Jack took pity on her.

Lauren: [Scoffs]

Michael: Or...else she arm-twisted him into it after helping him try to manipulate you.

Lauren: Yes! I'm going with number 2.

Michael: Look. The thing is, sweetheart, you won. You got what you wanted. You got the deal. You still have control of Fenmore's. Focus on that. Stay aware at all times. But otherwise, just focus on making that company a huge success.

Lauren: So you're saying I should just leave Gloria to Jack?

Michael: [Chuckles] I couldn't have put it better. Oh, and also... in the meantime...

Lauren: Mmm.

Michael: Do not forget that you have a husband who is looking forward to playing valentine's with you later on.

Lauren: [Laughs] I will not forget that. Do you know that fen sent me flowers? Isn't that sweet?

Michael: Yes. Have you heard from Scott?

Lauren: No. No, I haven't. It's so hard to reach him these days. But he's doing such good work with the refugee crisis.... I mean, his articles, they're just -- they're so insightful.

Michael: Your son's a gifted writer.

Lauren: You know something, Mr. Baldwin?

Michael: Hmm?

Lauren: You are right. Everything has really fit perfectly into place the last few days. This is a good time for us. We really do have it all.

Jack: So, what is your timeline for the virtual dressing room roll-out?

Phyllis: Well, if I could actually get a minute with Ravi, I could have it ready to test by spring break.

Jack: I'll see that Ashley shares the wealth.

Phyllis: I appreciate that.

Jack: Anything else?

Phyllis: Uh, I do need to go through our preliminary marketing plan for fourth quarter with you.

Jack: Well, I am late for a meeting so we'll work through it tonight.

Phyllis: Tonight?

Jack: Oh, that's right. It's Valentine's Day. Never mind. I'm sure you have plans.

Phyllis: Actually, I don't.

Jack: Oh. I saw those flowers. I thought -- well, never mind.

Phyllis: They're from some guy. It's no big deal. Someone I met on an online dating site.

Jack: Well, I'm glad you're getting out there. Moving on.

Phyllis: Attempting to. Though, not with troy. He's not my type.

Jack: He's not the lying, conniving type you've fallen for lately?

Phyllis: Jack, Billy and I were a mistake. We were determined to self-destruct, and that's what we did. Despite what we told one another about our relationship... it was never gonna work. Because Billy only truly loves one woman, and that's Victoria.

Billy: You. Time to knock off.

Victoria: Oh! Are we celebrating?

Billy: Yes, ma'am.

Victoria: You know, I've overseen a lot of product launches, but this one has gone especially well. Do you think we should wait for Jill and Cane, though?

Billy: Oh, we are not celebrating the launch. This is to brash & Sassy!'s lovely new owner and all the things that she is going to accomplish.

Victoria: Whoa, whoa, whoa. I'm not the owner yet. I don't want to jinx it.

Billy: You won't. Once you pitch the idea to my mother, she is going to be delighted to sell to you. Cheers.

Jill: Oh, Cane. I sympathize. I really sympathize, but you just don't have the money, my love, and I need the proceeds right away. I have one chance to convince Jack to sell me his stake in Fenmore's, and he's not gonna let me do it over time.

Cane: I get it, just like I get you and I were both shafted. Lauren left you out of the Fenmore's deal, and Victoria's just steamrolling right over me. I get it, okay?

Jill: Mm. All right, realistically speaking, even if I gave you the extra time, how are you gonna put your hands on millions and millions of dollars?

Cane: I already have feelers out to lenders, all right? They're people I know, people I trust. They're friends of mine, and I know they can come through with the money for me.

Jill: And you would realistically take on that kind of debt?

Cane: [Sighs] Instinctively, I said no, but then I think about it. You know, if the terms of the deal aren't that onerous, yes. Yes, I will take on the debt.

Jill: And what about Billy? I know you and my son do not get along. How do I know you wouldn't fire him?

Cane: Well, how do you know that Victoria's not gonna fire him?

Jill: Because I would have her put it in writing as part of the deal, that he would have a job for at least a year.

Cane: Fine, I'm gladly gonna give you that same deal. I'll even put it in writing. But I'm asking you -- no, I am begging you. Please, please give me this chance to work for myself. Let me make the big decisions -- the big, tough decisions. Billy, he's happy to take a back seat, but that's not me. It's not me. It will never be who I am. Please.

Jill: I know that, Cane. Okay, you have till the end of the day.

Cane: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you.

Gloria: What are you doing, lurking around?

Michael: I heard a wild rumor that you were working here. I had to come see for myself.

Gloria: Well, feast your eyes.

Michael: Mm. Jack's receptionist. Again. [Sighs] Really?

Gloria: Working my way up the corporate ladder -- again. Really.

Michael: Time will tell.

Gloria: Don't you underestimate me, Michael. That's a mistake you don't want to make.

Michael: Jeffrey send you these?

Gloria: [Scoffs] Flowers cost money. He'd rather throw it away at the track, and I haven't gotten any valentine tributes from my sons.

Michael: I still can't believe you settled for a job answering phones. I figured you'd want something with a bit more cachet. A touch of glamour.

Gloria: Being a receptionist is not my ideal job. But I got my foot back in the door of a very successful business, a business that means a great deal to me.

Michael: Uh-huh.

Gloria: Don't you look down that nose at me, Michael. I got big plans for myself.

Michael: Of that I have no doubt.

Gloria: Good.

Michael: So, tell me. How exactly does Jack figure into your big plans?

Jack: Then we are all agreed. We want the two Chicago ad agencies to make their pitch to us the week of the 6th.

Phyllis: And the one in Minneapolis.

Lauren: Right.

Jack: I will add that to the list.

[Cell phone chimes]

Jack: Could you please turn that off? I find that incredibly distracting.

Lauren: [Chuckles] The internet is psyched about our virtual dressing room app.

Phyllis: We are meeting with Ravi after this to discuss beta testing.

Lauren: Yeah, this merger is getting a lot of attention.

Jack: I'm not surprised at all. That's why I fought so hard to be your partner.

Lauren: Mm, well other than your tastes in receptionists, I'm feeling very positive about all this, Jack.

Jack: I assume I'll be part of this meeting with Ravi.

Lauren: Oh.

Phyllis: It's very technical, Jack. It's not your thing.

Jack: Okay, let's get something straight right away, ladies. I know you made it very clear to the public that you're in charge at Fenmore's. So I expect you to run the company. But there will be no major expenditures without running them by me first. That includes this app.

Lauren: I see.

Jack: I know you have 51% of the company, but I have a significant investment in Fenmore's future. I won't be kept in the dark. Do we understand each other?

Ashley: I'm so happy you can make my new feature work.

Ravi: It's a great addition.

Ashley: I thought so. When will it be operational?

Ravi: Well, first, I have to do some work on Phyllis' dressing room app. I was planning to work on that tonight.

Ashley: You don't have to do that, it's a holiday. I'm sure you've got plans.

Ravi: Actually, I don't.

Ashley: Well, make some. Are you kidding? A hopeless romantic like you should not be alone on Valentine's Day.

[Door closes]

Ravi: [Sighs]

Cane: It's all invested? You -- all right, you don't have any funds that aren't committed? No, no, it's -- it's okay, mark. Hey, listen. I appreciate it. Thank you. Thanks for the vote of confidence, okay? Yeah. All right. Hey, listen. Thank you. Hey, give my love to Mary Beth, will you?

Lily: Hey! There you are. I was looking for you. Why'd you leave during my appearance?

Cane: Oh, I had this business thing I had to kind of do. It couldn't wait.

Lily: That's okay. Well, I know how you could make it up to me.

Cane: Yeah?

Lily: Mm-hmm.

Cane: Happy anniversary, beautiful.

Lily: It is off to a wonderful start.

Billy: Lily killed it in Madison.

Victoria: Yeah, and lake Geneva. The crowds are really responding.

Jill: Well, that's really good to know, but I need a word with you in private. Could we have a moment, please? Billy...

Billy: Uh, you've been talking to Cane about the sale, haven't you?

Victoria: Actually, I wanted to discuss that with you, Jill.

[Knocks on door]

Billy: Uh, Jordan. Jordan's here! Jordan, come in! Please!

Jordan: Hey. Everyone ready?

Jill: Ready for what? Who are you?

Victoria: [Laughs] Jill Atkinson, this is Jordan Wilde. He's the wonderful photographer behind Lily's pictures for the dare campaign, and Jill owns the company.

Jordan: Oh, nice to meet you, ms. Atkinson.

Jill: Well, likewise.

Victoria: I just think that our customers should see the brilliant minds behind the products, so I hired Jordan to do the corporate photos for the website. So why don't we just get started?

Jordan: Sounds good.

[Camera shutter clicking]

Jordan: Am I getting shots of you, too?

Jill: Uh, no. I'm about to sell my interest in the company. So why don't you move forward with the principals?

Jordan: Okay, we've gotten each of your solos. How about all three of you guys together?

Billy: Yeah, sure. That sounds good. Cane, come on over.

Victoria: Yeah. Okay. How about me here, and, um, you two behind me? Should I be sitting or standing?

Jordan: We'll do shots of each.

Victoria: Great. Ready when you are.

Jordan: All right. Good.

Phyllis: Jack is still smarting after that interview. How you got your points across!

Lauren: Yeah, I noticed that, though.

[Both chuckle]

Phyllis: That's a guy who does not like coming in second.

Lauren: Well, you know what? Tough. He made the deal, he's gonna have to live by it.

Phyllis: That's the way I like it. Good thinking.

Lauren: Thank you. Honey, I would really love to delegate this meeting to you with Ravi because I would like to cut out early and start celebrating Valentine's Day with Michael.

Phyllis: Yeah, of course.

Lauren: Is that all right?

Phyllis: Absolutely.

Lauren: Do you mind?

Phyllis: No. Enjoy.

Lauren: Okay. Thank you. I owe you one, for sure.

Phyllis: Okay, I'll collect.

[Cell phone rings]

Lauren: Hello? Hello? Who -- who's calling? [Scoffs] We have such a bad connection. You know what, let me go stand by a window or something.

Michael: You and Jack aren't friends, to say the least. I can't help wondering why he'd want you around all day, much less give you the opportunity to climb the corporate ladder.

Gloria: Wonder all you like, mike. It's happening.

Michael: Why? What do you got on him?

Gloria: Excuse me?

Michael: You heard me. Must be something big.

Gloria: Don't be absurd.

Michael: Do you really expect me to believe that you're not blackmailing Jack?

Gloria: You believe whatever you like, Mikey. There's nothing nefarious going on. So stop with the insinuations, huh?

Ashley: And that's it for the fall marketing campaign.

Jack: Excellent. Nice job.

Ashley: Thank you. By the way, I let sales know that I'm going to be giving the keynote at the annual buyers' luncheon.

Jack: Great. Wait. The keynote?

Ashley: Mm-hmm.

Jack: That's my job. I'm handling that.

Ashley: Not anymore.

Jack: Since when you do present yourself as the principal voice of this company?

Ashley: Since I decided to take control.

Billy: Lily, you ready for your last interview?

Lily: I am, yeah. Cane, are you coming?

Cane: Uh, I'll be there in a sec.

Lily: Okay.

Cane: All right.

Billy: Mom, you want to come and see our superstar in action?

Jill: Oh, I wouldn't miss it, right after I have a little talk with Victoria.

Billy: Okie dokie. You ready?

Lily: Yeah. Let's go.

Cane: Have fun.

[Cell phone rings]

Cane: Hey. Gordon, thank you for getting back to me, I appreciate it.

Jill: Where do you get off making unilateral decisions about this company? I do still own it, you know, Victoria.

Victoria: Of that I'm well aware.

Jill: Well, then, why would you think you could override my decision to sell the company to the three of you?

Victoria: Several reasons, actually. First of all, it was originally my company. I don't think that Billy has any interest in being co-C.E.O., and Cane can't even afford a 1/3 buy-in.

Jack: Well, for your information, Cane is trying to raise the cash right now to buy the company outright, just like you're trying to do.

Victoria: Hmm. Really? Well, when I see him, I'll wish him luck.

Jill: I've given him till the end of this business day to come up with the cash.

Victoria: I think you're hoping that he'll outbid me.

Jill: Considering how much he has raised this company up, yes, I think that he deserves a chance to be part of it. But more to the point, he's been quite candid with me about what's been going on around here, Victoria. Yeah, I would like to see brash & sassy! In the hands of someone with that kind of integrity.

Victoria: How about this kind of integrity?

Cane: Gordon, you don't have to apologize, okay? I know it's -- I know it's a lot of money. Okay. Thanks, man. Hey, listen, I appreciate it. Thank you.

Jill: Any luck?

Cane: No. I need another day, maybe two. Can you do that for me?

Jill: Um, Victoria just presented me with a cashier's check made out to chancellor industries. Darling, if you, realistically, think that you can beat this...

Cane: [Laughs] You have to be kidding me. Really? Just like that, she can write you a check that doesn't even put a dent in her bank balance? Really?

Jill: I'm so, so sorry. I'm gonna have to accept this. But, Cane, she promised me you could keep your job. I know that she values your contribution to this company. Honey, things will work out. I know they'll work out. I know it's not how you wanted it.

[Knocks on door]

Phyllis: Ravi? Troy! Hey, it's Phyllis. Same to you. [Laughs] Uh, hey, I'm just giving you a call to say thank you for the lovely flowers. They were beautiful. You didn't need to go through that trouble, though. It was just one date. Very sweet of you, but, I, um, am back in a relationship, so... yeah. Thank you for being so gracious. Yeah, I'm -- I'm sorry it didn't work out, but you know what? I -- I know that you are gonna find someone very special one day. Okay. Okay. Bye-bye. [Sighs] How much of that did you hear?

Ravi: Um, most of it. Not that it's not any of my business, but I didn't realize you had a boyfriend.

Phyllis: I don't. My friend made that up for this -- troy. Put it this way, when, um... when you look for love online, you never know. The odds of finding that direct match are not so good.

Ravi: Yeah. You're right. It's tricky. Those online sites use various algorithms. They can find connections between people, but can technology find love? Or, you know, produce a soul mate on command? Highly improbable, I'd say.

Phyllis: I'm not so sure why I matched with troy in the first place.

Ravi: Oh, don't get discouraged. A lot of my friends found the love of their lives online.

Phyllis: It's a numbers game.

Ravi: Exactly. Just keep at it. Like I've told Ashley a few times, you both deserve to find the right person.

Phyllis: Aww. Same goes for you, Ravi.

Ravi: Thank you. Excuse me.

Phyllis: Oh, sure. Hey, um, since we're both here, what do you say we work on that dressing room app?

Ravi: Uh, sure. I'm actually kind of starving. Want to order in some dinner first?

Phyllis: Got a better idea. Why don't we go out, grab a bite to eat, and come back here and hunker down?

Ravi: I like the way you think.

[Telephone ringing]

Gloria: Jabot cosmetics. Executive floor. How may I direct your call? I'll have to get back to you. May I help you, Jill?

Jill: When did this happen?

[Telephone rings]

Gloria: Jack hired me. Isn't he the sweetest?

Jill: [Laughs] There are a lot of words I would use to describe Jack Abbott. "Sweet" is not one of them.

Gloria: [Laughs] Jill, you dear thing. I'd forgotten how much I missed your droll sense of humor.

Ashley: You know how upset I've been with the decisions you've been making, Jack. Going after Victor -- again -- obsessing about getting control of Fenmore's then settling for 49%, investing our capital and our resources... and then the coup de grāce. You hired Gloria. I know full well she has something on you, something you don't want anyone else to know about.

Jack: I told you why I hired Gloria.

Ashley: And I'm not interested in hearing any more of your excuses because it has to stop. Our father left us equal shares of this company, which means I have as much right as you to run it the way that I see fit.

Jack: So, what, you're gonna stage a coup? You really think I'm gonna stand for that?

Ashley: Somebody has to take charge. Somebody who is fair and stable and consistent and not at war with everyone, and that's not you.

Jack: You have no right to do this.

Ashley: I'll go to the board and I will get their support. You know why? It's painfully obvious that you don't give a damn about our father's company, but I sure as hell do.

Jack: Fine. You go to the board. How dare you say I don't care about our father's company?

Ashley: You know what, Jack? You have let your messy personal life get in the way of our father's legacy, and I'm telling you -- you need to step back. The bottom line is I don't trust you anymore, brother, and I don't trust your judgment. If you can't get it together soon, then I am taking over Jabot.

Jack: Ashley. We're not finished h-- Ashley! I'm talking to you!

Lauren: Hello? Scott, is that you calling? [Sighs] So frustrated.

Michael: What? What? What's wrong? Mwah!

Lauren: Well, somebody is calling me from overseas, but the connection is horrible. I've been all over the floor trying to find a good signal.

Michael: Any idea who it is?

Lauren: Well, I think it's Scott calling to wish me a happy Valentine's Day, but even though I could barely hear his voice, I'm very touched he would remember.

Michael: Knowing Scott, he will keep trying until he gets in touch with you.

Lauren: I know you're right.

Michael: I am right.

Ravi: You like curry?

Phyllis: Ooh! I love curry. The hotter, the better.

Ravi: I know just the place.

Phyllis: Mmm.

Ravi: Let's go to Tamarind.

Phyllis: Ooh, is that the place on Elm?

Ravi: Yeah, the Vindaloo's spectacular.

Phyllis: Ooh, I'm all about spectacular.

Gloria: Going to dinner for Valentine's Day -- very first date. Isn't that adorable?

Jill: Are you out of your tiny little mind?

Jack: According to my sister, I am. What crazy stunt have I pulled now?

Jill: You hired Gloria!

Jack: Shouldn't you be at brash & sassy! Helping promote their men's body spray?

Jill: No, Jack. Billy and Victoria are gonna handle that just fine. But you have been bamboozled into hiring Gloria. So I would say that I stopped by just in time.

Jack: Oh, then that's why you're here -- to make my life easier.

Jill: Immeasurably, Jack. I have an offer you can't refuse.

Cane: So, you just hand Jill a check and that's how it's gonna be, right? Your way or the highway -- is that right?

Victoria: I have no intention of letting you go, but it's in everyone's best interest if you can be a team player.

Cane: You know how much this meant to me. I -- I wanted to be your equal. I don't want to have to work for you, but, well, you have access to daddy's money, so you just get to do whatever you want, is that right?

Victoria: First of all, it's not my father's money. It's my money. And I did take your feelings into consideration.

Cane: Really? How do you figure that?

Victoria: I promised Jill that I would keep you on, and I intend to honor that promise.

Cane: I don't want to be "kept on." This means something to me. You don't understand how much this means to me, do you?

Victoria: Look, Cane, this is just business, okay? This is the real world, and if you can't accept that --

Cane: Don't patronize me, all right? I am not some peon. You will not patronize me.

Billy: Back away from her, Cane. Now.

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

Billy: Valentine's Day is not over yet. Let me drive you home.

Lily: All you talk about now is how you feel like you lost out on brash & sassy!

Cane: That's because it means something to me.

Lily: What, does it mean more to you than our anniversary?

Jill: I have been disrespected and disregarded, and I'm putting an end to it, whatever it takes.
