Billy: Homework in public? What are you doing?
Billy: Didn't know this is how a, uh, headliner prepares for his triumphant return engagement.
Reed: It's only an open mic night at the underground.
Billy: Well, at least you're not grounded anymore.
Reed: Yeah, I know, right?
Billy: Your mom's really excited about the show. She keeps telling everybody "how talented my son is."
Reed: I don't know what exactly happened, but her switch really got flipped. I mean, it's like she's a totally different person. You know, she even asked me to play for her.
Billy: Yeah, she told me that, too.
Reed: It was a shock, but like -- like a good shock.
Reed: But you know what the coolest part was?
Billy: Hit me.
Reed: She didn't seem surprised that I was any good.
Billy: Well, your mom's pretty cool. I mean, if she wasn't, I wouldn't have married her -- twice. Let's be honest, you know. I'm a catch.
Billy: If you need any help with your rockstar wardrobe, I'm available, too.
Cane: We just got a message from Mr. Sato's office confirming the appointment, so he's on his way, and you have nothing to worry about.
Victoria: Why would I be worried? This man is the linchpin in our Asian rollout strategy. His distribution company controls all of the markets that we want to be in.
Juliet: He is old school. His company's number one because he insists on dealing with only the top foreign brands.
Cane: And Juliet's been filling me in on all things sato.
Victoria: This is gonna be one of the most crucial meetings for brash & sassy. No pressure.
Cane: I've got this, Victoria. I will not leave Tokyo without this agreement.
Mariah: Welcome back to the show. I'd like to warn our viewers that what you're about to see may be shocking and disturbing to some of those with sensitive dispositions. My co-host, Hilary Hamilton, is about to do housework. How are you feeling, Hilary?
Hilary: Marvelous, Mariah. And yes, it is true. I'm not a huge fan of getting down and dirty.
Mariah: You mean when it comes to household work.
Hilary: [Chuckles] But that is why we are here, because GC buzz has discovered an amazing, new product, countess green's mega-kleen. It is nontoxic, biodegradable, and cruelty-free.
Mariah: It also makes cleaning a snap for even the most spoiled of divas.
Hilary: Well, let's say hello to the diva who created this amazing product, Shelley London.
Mariah: Hello, Shelley. Welcome to the show. We are so happy to have you.
Shelley: I am happy to be here.
Mariah: All right, guys. What do you say? Do you want to get to work?
Hilary: [Sighs] Okay.
Mariah: [Laughs] All right, Hilary, you're gonna need these gloves.
Shelley: You will not be needing those gloves, Hilary, because mega-kleen has no harsh chemicals, so it's easy on the hands.
Mariah: Wow. Look at that. Although Hilary did just a $400 manicure, so...
Hilary: Oops! [Chuckles] Let's see how mega-kleen stacks up against a dirty kitchen floor, shall we? [Chuckles]
Mariah: Yeah. With old and new stains.
Hilary: So, what are you gonna be slopping on there for us, Shelley?
Shelley: Marinara sauce and grape juice.
Mariah: Anybody with kids knows what a plausible combination that really is. Oh, wow. [Laughs]
Hilary: Okay, here we go.
Mariah: All right. So, I'm sure our audience and our viewers would like to know. Hilary, when is the last time you actually used one of these?
Hilary: I've actually done plenty of mopping in my day, but yes, it's true. I have a wonderful maid, and she is going to love this product.
Mariah: She is a very, very lucky lady. All right, what do you say? Ready... set... go! The race is on.
Hilary: Oh, my gosh.
Mariah: Uh, you okay, Hilary?
Hilary: That is -- ow! Okay, Shelley, can you just pass me that sponge right there? Who needs a mop, right? Sometimes a little elbow grease, that's the solution.
Shelley: Especially when you don't have a maid, right?
Mariah: Or you lost one in a disappointing divorce settlement. You know what? Let's make this fair. Shall we?
Hilary: It's easy.
Mariah: It's a great product.
Hilary: Piece of cake. I win.
Mariah: Well, you know, you can't call this show predictable. Do you know what else I love about this product, Hilary?
Hilary: That it's great for laundry? And for more of Shelley's top cleaning tips, check our website, and keep on buzzing, GC.
And we're out!
Jordan: That was a fun segment, Hilary.
Devon: You nailed it.
Hilary: Okay, one at a time, boys. Thank you.
Victoria: Juliet, you've met Mr. Sato. Is he as intimidating as his e-mails?
Juliet: He is very traditional. He deals with many different countries, but he definitely believes the Japanese way of business is the best.
Cane: Okay, but I've worked in Tokyo before, so I know what to expect.
Victoria: Yeah, I know. That's why you're there. But it -- it has been awhile, so maybe Juliet can brush you up very quickly.
Juliet: Absolutely, Victoria.
Lily: Victoria? Hi.
Cane: Hey, is that my beautiful wife?
Lily: Sorry. I didn't mean to interrupt your call.
Victoria: No, it's okay. I'm actually on with your husband.
Cane: Hey, baby.
Victoria: I'll be right back. Cane, we'll talk later.
Lily: Hi. How was your flight?
Cane: It was long. I got some sleep, woke up, prepped for the meeting, went back to sleep, woke up, still wasn't here. How are the twins, sweetheart? Are they okay?
Lily: Uh, they're good. Those book reports they kept putting off, they both got gold stars.
Cane: Congratulations, mom. So, uh, are they getting a reward, or...?
Lily: Yeah, a sleepover at grandpa Neil's until daddy comes home.
Cane: [Chuckles] They're already over grandpa Colin, huh?
Lily: Yeah, they turned on him after he ate all of their favorite cereal and then threw the prize out with the box.
Cane: All right, okay. Um, I'll settle things out with dad when I get home, all right? Don't worry about that.
Lily: Okay. Um, well, good luck with your meeting. I should go.
Cane: Aishite imasu.
Lily: I love you, too.
Billy: I'm really happy that you and your mother worked everything out.
Reed: Well, we don't actually have an official deal or anything yet, but, you know, now that she gets my whole thing about music and how much it means to me, I kind of don't want to be so much of a jerk.
Reed: Oh, God.
Billy: You two back on friendly terms? I mean, it's -- it's just whatever.
Billy: "Whatever" sounds like trouble. I'm gonna grab a coffee and let you..."whatever."
Reed: Hey, Zoey.
Zoey: You avoiding me?
Reed: No. Why would you think that?
Zoey: I texted you a gazillion times.
Reed: I'm sorry. I'm -- I'm kind of between phones.
Zoey: Don't even. I know what you've been up to. And it's on shuffle in my phone.
Reed: My performance at the underground? People actually saw that? Um, it was so rough. I mean, I didn't even have time to rehearse it or anything.
Zoey: Yeah, right! [Chuckles] You obviously haven't been to one of our school talent shows. [Chuckles]
Reed: No, but I am playing again at the underground tonight.
Zoey: Shut up! Do they let kids in there?
Reed: Yeah, my uncle owns the place. And the open mic's all ages.
Zoey: Can my friends and I come?
Zoey: No, in 10 years at my bachelorette party. [Chuckles] Of course, tonight. I want to hear you play.
Jordan: Yo, Devon, that was a dynamite segment.
Devon: Oh, yeah, thanks to our fantastic hosts, who are back cleaning up right now.
Jordan: I love the chemistry between Hilary and Mariah. So fresh and edgy. You can't look away.
Devon: You should have seen them when they started. It was like ammonia and bleach. You mix them together, and kaboom.
Jordan: Obviously part of the reason why the viewers, they just love them so much.
Hilary: After all of that housework, I am ready for that drink you mentioned.
Jordan: Oh, great. Let's hit it. See you later.
Devon: See you.
Hilary: Good night.
Devon: Have a good night. See you tomorrow.
Mariah: Hey, boss.
Mariah: You okay?
Devon: Yeah. Yeah. I don't care what Hilary does. We're not together anymore. Um, you did fantastic tonight. I just want to let you know that, so keep up the good work.
Mariah: Look, you could go home and pretend that you are fine with...all that. Or you could join me for open mic night at the underground.
Devon: Are you performing?
Mariah: Oh, no. No, no. God, no. I would not subject you to that whatsoever.
Devon: I, um, I do appreciate you offering that to me, but I think I'm just gonna go home and work out and turn in early tonight.
Mariah: Next time, then?
Devon: You know what? I do love a good open mic night.
Victoria: Have a nice chat?
Lily: Uh, yeah. It was good. We didn't have the fondest farewell, so...
Victoria: [Sighs] Look, I'm sorry. This trip was so sudden. I hope that wasn't a problem.
Lily: No, no, no. We're -- we're thrilled that you are trusting him with the Asian distributor. Trust me, our issues have nothing to do with work.
Victoria: Well, your personal married stuff is none of my business, but the three of us are also married to brash & sassy, and I really need this relationship to thrive at least for the next quarter or two.
Lily: Yeah, don't worry. We're fine. The only real problem is Cane's father.
Victoria: The last I heard, Cane let him spend the night after Jill's heart attack.
Lily: Yeah, which, frankly, he caused, so she dumped him. But that was awhile ago.
Victoria: He's still at your place?
Lily: Oh, yeah. Unless one of the lottery tickets that I bought him paid off in the last two hours. He might leave then. [Scoffs]
Victoria: Hey, you know what? Why don't we order some dinner and we can just go over your schedule? Sound fun?
Lily: [Chuckles] Yeah.
Juliet: The three major don'ts when meeting powerful Japanese executives.
Cane: They all start with an S.
Juliet: Good. Go on.
Cane: Okay, uh, don't shake hands. Always bow. Uh, don't sit until the most important person in the room has sat.
Juliet: And finally?
Cane: Don't snoop. Don't ask personal questions.
Juliet: You've got the don'ts. And on the do side.
Cane: I didn't know there were do's. Is this a trick question?
Juliet: Cane, there's just one.
Cane: Speak Japanese.
Juliet: Use Japanese. Just a few words. Obviously the meeting will be in English, but just making a small effort is considered a great sign of respect.
Cane: Okay, so it's not, "good day, Mr. Sato." It's "sato-san."
Juliet: I think you're much more prepared than the typical American.
Cane: You know, um, it's an honor to meet Mr. Sato, but I don't understand. You know you could have done this meeting yourself.
Juliet: Absolutely not. Like I told you, sato-san is a very traditional executive.
Cane: Meaning he doesn't want to do business with women, or...?
Juliet: It's not that. He will only deal with another decision-maker. My main role here is interpreter so sato-san understands brash & sassy's market requirements.
Juliet: Excellent. You'll do just fine, Cane.
Cane: I got this. I got this.
Reed: Yes, the underground. Um, I could comp your tickets free of charge.
Zoey: Cool! I can't wait to see you play live. Being there is like this whole experience. You can't download that. [Chuckles] If I get close enough, would you sing to just me?
Reed: Yeah, sure.
Zoey: Don't forget to look out for me from, like, the stage.
Zoey: See you later, rockstar.
Billy: That is the girl you got caught testing the sofa cushions with, right?
Reed: She sure is.
Billy: And that is the girl that came up with that hilarious meme, the one with your mother as the witch.
Reed: That's ancient history.
Reed: Yeah, she apologized. Mom's cool. I mean, Zoey and I are fine. And she's coming to watch me play tonight.
Billy: Ooh. Groupie number one, huh?
Reed: [Chuckles] She did just call me a rockstar.
Billy: So, rockstar, you ready for the big time?
Reed: I don't know about that.
Billy: That's good. Head's not too far in the clouds. Glad to hear it. Listen. Have fun tonight, okay? Be good.
Juliet: Sato-san, kein'ashubi-san no shokai o sa sete kudasai.
Cane: Anata ni aete koei desu.
Mr. Sato: It is an honor and pleasure to meet you, as well. Victoria Newman and I have been in contact for some time. To me, she showed the same type of skill and vision as her father, Victor.
Cane: Uh, thank you. She is an inspiration to us all.
Mr. Sato: These retail numbers for your women's products are quite impressive.
Cane: Thank you. We're very proud of its success. Um, I should tell you that recently Victoria Newman now is running brash & sassy on her own.
Juliet: Up until recently, the company had three co-C.E.O.s -- Victoria, Mr. Abbott, and Mr. Ashby.
Cane: So we were making decisions as a group.
Mr. Sato: So you were involved in the recent decision to focus on men's products?
Cane: Oh, absolutely. In addition to the current line, which is a huge success with huge orders and, uh, very positive feedback.
Mr. Sato: I noticed heavy focusing on this for the upcoming quarter. To be perfectly honest, I am not entirely comfortable with this shift in direction. I don't really see a future in men's...cosmetics.
Juliet: Sato-san, you are an astute businessman. You must know things are changing. Young men are becoming more westernized. They are more interested in ways to impress young women.
Cane: Absolutely. These young men care about how their skin feels and how they smell, and now you have an opportunity to have the sole distribution rights to brash & sassy's products, including our new men's line, which would be a coup for your company.
Mr. Sato: I hear what you're saying. And brash & sassy has my attention. But this focus on your new men's line of...
Cane: Products. They're men's products.
Mr. Sato: ...Cosmetics is of little interest to me.
Jordan: You were amazing today. A knockout like you scrubbing the floor, that was just good TV.
Hilary: [Laughs] Please, okay? It is an image that I am trying desperately to forget.
Jordan: What? I thought you were kind of cute, especially since you clearly don't know how to mop.
Hilary: [Laughs] Okay, I did. I did once in a former life, before I married a man that had so much money that I never saw a bill or ever had to pay one, for that matter.
Jordan: How'd you meet? When Devon brought you onto the show?
Hilary: That's the sad part, because if I had just fallen for the big TV mogul, no one would have expected us to work, right? But no. We came to GC buzz together. He bought the show for me.
Jordan: So if it's cool to ask, what went wrong?
Hilary: You know what? I just want to have a fabulous night with you, okay? And I don't want to talk about divorce or Devon or doomed relationship drama. Is that cool?
Jordan: I'm all for it. But it seems like the Genoa city night-life scene might be a little too small for the two of you.
Noah: You two came on a good night.
Mariah: I know.
Devon: Yeah, it's a nice crowd you got here. When are you gonna get up on stage?
Noah: Nope. No.
Devon: Bust out, huh?
Noah: No, no, no. But we do have a very talented Newman cousin whose, uh, fanbase isn't quite old enough to boost our alcohol sales.
Mariah: Well, we'll take care of that. So, whatever the boss man is drinking, make it two doubles, because I am buying.
Devon: Thank you.
Noah: Whiskey sour?
Devon: You know it. Thanks. That's not the, uh, making best use of your raise, Mariah.
Mariah: Well, it's a special evening. I mean, how often do you get a night away from your high-powered and high-maintenance concerns?
Devon: That might not be tonight.
Mariah: What do you mean? Oh, my God. Look, we -- we came here to get away. We don't -- we don't have to stay. We can go. No.
Devon: Don't be ridiculous. We're already here, and Noah needs us to keep the bar afloat, so let's just have a good time and see where the night takes us.
Devon: It's fine. It's fine. There we go.
Both: Thank you.
Noah: You got it.
Jordan: Seems like your soon-to-be ex may not be so chill about us hanging out. You think he followed us here?
Hilary: Yeah, of course he did. So, why don't we pretend like we didn't see them come in, hmm?
Jordan: See who?
Victoria: Hey. I got you the lobster ravioli.
Billy: Yeah? What's the occasion?
Victoria: Hmm, it's called the nightly special.
Billy: Well, in that case, I'm glad I remembered your coffee.
Victoria: Oh, thanks.
Billy: Guess what? I saw Reed at crimson lights.
Victoria: Oh, really?
Victoria: Was he studying?
Billy: Are you asking me to report on his activities, Mom?
Victoria: No! [Sighs] Yes.
Billy: Okay, when I walked in, he didn't see me, and he was definitely studying.
Victoria: Do you think then maybe he was finished? Because he said he was gonna finish everything before he goes to the underground.
Billy: I'm not sure. He seemed very focused, and then he was distracted by his number-one fan.
Victoria: A girl?
Billy: Well, you know her. Uh, she's actually number-one on your least-favorite teen list.
Victoria: I don't have a -- what are you talking... Zoey?
Billy: Yeah. That's her. See? Told you. It's a short list, but you do have one.
Victoria: Wow. I haven't heard that name in awhile. Why would he still be attracted to her after she cyber-bullied me?
Billy: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Okay, can we tone it down on the cyber-bullying thing?
Victoria: And I don't know why she would be attracted to him after I caught her practically devouring him on the sofa.
Billy: See, I didn't see it that way. It looked like more of a mutual kind of...devouring.
Victoria: Billy, stop being so naive, okay? This girl gives me a bad vibe. I wouldn't be surprised if her endgame was "pregnant with Newman."
Billy: Geez! Mom, relax, all right? Okay, Reed's gonna have a lot of girlfriends.
Victoria: Yeah, I know that. I'm not opposed to the idea of a girlfriend. I'm opposed to her.
Billy: I don't think it was anything special, okay? It's nothing serious. He likes her. She's gonna go to an open mic thing, and he's excited about it.
Billy: What are you doing?
Victoria: What do you think I'm doing?
Billy: Where are you going? Vick! Vick! Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Hey, come on. Stop, stop, stop. You don't want to do this, okay? Just think about it.
Victoria: I do want to do this, okay, because I've been dying to put that little tart in her place for a while now.
Billy: You can't do that, okay? Moms don't chase their sons' quasi-girlfriends around to give them a little tart lecture. You know whose mom does that? Mine.
Billy: If you think that Reed was upset when you tried to referee his tonsil hockey game...
Victoria: Mnh! All right, all right.
Billy: I'm just saying that you worked things out, all right? Reed actually feels that you were able to hit the reset button. He told me so tonight.
Victoria: Well, we have, because we have something to talk about.
Victoria: His music. But that doesn't mean that I'm not his mother.
Billy: No, of course not. But don't worry about Zoey, okay? She's cute, but she's -- you know, she's not all that, okay?
Billy: Look, if that video is any indication, Reed playing his music, there's going to be girls clawing past Zoey in order to get to Reed, hoping that he writes a song about them.
Victoria: What if I made a mistake, Billy, encouraging him to be a musician? What if it drives him straight into other bad influences that ruin his life?
Billy: If you don't encourage him, he's gonna get there a lot sooner, believe me. Look, things were a little bit bleak there, but you pulled it out, so take a second. Enjoy that. Let's go to the underground and support Reed.
Victoria: No, he made me swear I'd stay away. He thinks I'm gonna make him feel self-conscious. I'm not offended, okay? I get it.
Billy: We can hide in the back.
Victoria: No, it's gonna look like I'm spying. Besides, I'm waiting for Cane's call.
Billy: Right, 'cause that's important, too.
Victoria: Yes, it's crucial. It's our entire presence in Asia. Let's just hope he gets a solid yes out of Mr. Sato.
Billy: But? Are you thinking that you made a mistake sending Cane to Japan?
Cane: Sato-san, I know that you were aware of the agenda for this meeting.
Mr. Sato: To discuss an exclusive distribution agreement. But I have grave concerns about a company that is focusing so heavily on men's... products.
Cane: Well, let me assure you our focus is not disproportionate, even though it may seem that way because the men's line is new.
Mr. Sato: Why should I risk retail shelf space on a product that I, quite frankly, don't believe in?
Cane: Well, you tell me. What can I do to make you believe?
Mr. Sato: I just don't see this as a high-retail item for men.
Cane: Well, without meaning you any disrespect, our market research does say otherwise.
Mr. Sato: Outside experts can be wrong, and they often are. I've always relied on my own extinct.
Cane: Sato-san, what was your intention of having this meeting with us?
Mr. Sato: To have an exclusive distribution agreement had great appeal to me. But after hearing that you shifted your focus to the new men's line...
Cane: Well, let me assure you that our focus was shifted so that we can be competitive in the marketplace.
Mr. Sato: Perhaps in the united states. But here...
Cane: Here, I am certain that women love their men to have smooth, healthy skin and soft lips and smell good, and that is the intention of all of brash & sassy's products. Skin creams and our body sprays, they are designed for men, but with the women who love these man in mind. My -- my wife is one of these very special women.
Juliet: And she is lovely, gorgeous. She and Ashby-san have a wonderful relationship.
Cane: My wife Lily is the spokesmodel for the men's line. Perhaps these products at first won't sell to men, but they will sell to the girlfriends and the wives of these men. And when the men realize how much their women love these products, the sales will be off and running. We have this expression in America. It is "happy wife and happy life." But I believe that this is more of a global truth. Would you not agree with that?
Devon: I'm sorry. I'm being rude.
Mariah: To me? Hardly. I just feel bad. I don't want Hilary to ruin your one night out.
Devon: Neither do I.
Mariah: Another drink?
Devon: Great minds. Yes.
Mariah: I'll be right back.
Devon: Thank you.
Mariah: Two more of the same, please.
Noah: I'm sensing tension. You in trouble with the boss?
Mariah: What?! No! Just the opposite, in fact. I invited Devon out to get his mind off of Hilary, but who ended up being here?
Noah: Ah! You sick and twisted media types.
Noah: Here you go.
Mariah: Thank you.
Noah: You got it.
Mariah: Hey! Lily!
Lily: Hi. I hope it's okay I'm crashing. I just -- I was texting with Devon and thought it would be a good reason to get out of the house. My twins are with Neil, so...
Devon: And Cane's out of town, so she's been stuck babysitting his dad.
Lily: I cannot be around that man.
Devon: Well, we're just -- we're happy that you made it out, so...
Mariah: And you get to see Reed, Victoria's son, perform. He's amazing. Uh, he's right over there. I'm gonna go say hi. You should tell her who else is here. You'll need this.
Lily: Uh, tell me what?
Devon: Well, when I mentioned that we were on our way, we didn't realize who had already beat us.
Lily: Why is she here, and she's with Jordan?
Devon: They're on a date.
Lily: Excuse me? Your wife is dating? I thought Jordan had better taste than that.
Devon: She can do whatever she wants. We're estranged.
Lily: Okay, can you please just sign whatever you have to so we can get on with our lives and just close out this long and ugly chapter?
Hilary: Being a photographer, that sounds like a pretty glamorous job.
Jordan: Hmm. It has its moments. Depends on the subject.
Jordan: If I'm spending all day shooting a gorgeous woman, that's pretty glamorous. But not so much if I'm spending all day shooting peanut butter and dog food.
Hilary: Fair enough.
Hilary: If you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go freshen up, okay? Be right back.
Jordan: All right. Hey, I'll -- I'll see to the champagne.
Hilary: Yes, please!
Jordan: [Sighs] Here we go.
Lily: So, have you completely lost your mind?
Jordan: Have I lost my mind? Yeah. I thought you knew that. It's nice seeing you here.
Lily: You're actually dating that?
Jordan: Look, if you're worried about Devon, I've already talked to him. We're cool.
Lily: Listen, he's escaping her clutches in the nick of time. I'm just worried about you. That's it.
Hilary: Lily, did you really come all the way over here just for this? Oh, well, it is open mic night, so I guess you're entitled to perform your impression of an insecure shrew.
Lily: You know, I was just wondering, is it possible for you to not sleep with someone I know?
Devon: Lily, leave these two alone. They're grownups. They can do whatever they want to do.
Lily: Well, she's obviously enjoying the attempt at making you jealous.
Lily: Listen, Jordan, this is a game for her, okay? And like the rest of us, you are another pawn. That's it.
Hilary: What about the game that your brother is playing? Because he doesn't want to play with me, so no one else can, either? I'm sorry, but I'm just not gonna be stuck in the toy box, Lily.
Lily: Hilary, if you were a toy, you'd be recalled for toxic parts.
Jordan: Hey, come here. Hilary, things are getting weird. I think that we should go.
Devon: No, listen. No one's going anywhere on my account, okay? I was just leaving.
Hilary: [Sighs] Jordan, thank you, okay? Thank you. Thank you so much for taking me out. And I hope that we can -- we can resume this another night. But I think I need to go and settle things with Devon for good.
Jordan: Sure, sure. It's all good. Do what you got to do, all right? So, that's a side of you I've never seen before.
Lily: I know. I'm sorry. She just -- she brings out the worst in me. Like, she is a sociopath for sure. But listen to me. If you know what's good for you, you'll keep your distance.
Reed: Hey. Zoey, I saved you some seats.
Zoey: You're the best. I can't wait.
Reed: Come here. So, it's all yours. I'll be right back. So...
Mariah: This is only the second night of your live-performance career, and look at you with that little fan club back there.
Noah: Mm-hmm. No, you know what? This kid's a cut above. I swear, it seems like you've been doing this like at least five or six times.
Reed: I'm gonna go set up.
Victoria: You know there's no way I would have sent Cane to Tokyo if I didn't think he could do this.
Billy: Yeah, because that would be like sabotaging your own company.
Victoria: Exactly. Thank you. I appreciate that. But you know that I really --
Billy: You wanted to go and take care of it yourself.
Victoria: I did, but I couldn't. I mean, we're in the middle of a domestic rollout, and I didn't have time to find proper arrangements for the kids and --
Billy: Yeah, logistics are a nightmare.
Victoria: Yes, exactly. And do you think right now is the best time to be leaving Reed, when things are starting to go so well between us? And do me a favor, by the way.
Billy: Yeah? Name it.
Victoria: If Reed should ever complain to you that I am Victor Newman in female form, I want you to disagree with him, because my dad would have dropped anything to go to Tokyo and get this deal done for himself.
Billy: It's a special today. Two-for-one favor. Look, if you're that worried about it, go to Japan. Take care of business. I'll watch the kids, all three of them, and I'll hold down the fort here at the office.
Victoria: I appreciate that. I do. But the bottom line is, if I go there, I'll be totally undermining Cane, and I'll look like a hovering, insecure C.E.O. Who's second-guessing her decisions and her staff.
Billy: Yeah. But the sushi...
Cane: Sato-san, you enjoy and appreciate Japanese tradition and culture. But as a leading figure in business, you must also understand that the world is changing. The attitudes of young people, they're different, and if you cling to what is tried and true, then you may end up being left in the dust.
Mr. Sato: I am an older, very traditional man. But I can see the younger men in our office are different. To them, it's important to please their wives and girlfriends.
Cane: Then you see wisdom in our strategy?
Mr. Sato: I admire your determination. And given the weight of your presentation, you shall have my full and serious consideration.
Cane: Thank you, sato-san.
Mr. Sato: Despite my earlier reaction to your men's line, my confidence in brash & sassy has yet to wane. Although men's cosmetics are not for me, I would be remiss to discount the younger generation. How did you phrase it? "Happy wife, happy life."
Mr. Sato: To be exclusive distributor of all of brash & sassy, this could be a real coup for my company. You are a smart man, Ashby-san. I thank you for your persistence. So, let us move forward with this new partnership.
Lily: So did you get all that straight? Because now we're up to this past new year's eve, right, when Devon discovered that Hilary actually engineered Mariah's face splat on live TV as purely hateful revenge. So then realizing what a vicious, lying monster he was married to, he had this meltdown and he speeds off in his sportscar, crashing it, nearly killing him.
Jordan: Okay, my head's spinning a little. It's been an exhausting night. I'mma call it. See you tomorrow, Lily.
Noah: Thanks for coming to another underground open mic night. Appreciate it.
Noah: Uh, what do you say we kick things off. Back by popular demand with the return engagement of the very talented Reed Hellstrom.
[Cheers and applause]
Kendall: You have to see this picture of my mom from the '80s. She had a total mullet.
Zoey: [Laughs] Oh, my God!
Reed: Nothing will change if you say you don't love me no --
Victoria: Hey. I thought you went home.
Billy: I'm on my way. Why don't you go home and take Cane's call from there?
Victoria: No, I don't want to wake up the kids.
Billy: Just in case you scream at him on the phone?
Victoria: I'm not gonna scream, okay? I don't scream. Unless Cane messes up, then I'm really gonna scream.
Billy: He's gonna handle this.
Victoria: He better, because Jabot is all over Asia, and I don't want to aspire to meet their numbers. I want to crush them.
Billy: Well, I hope Cane knows that failure is not an option, then.
Mr. Sato: I am proud and honored to be the exclusive brash & sassy distributor of all product lines in all Asian territories.
Juliet: You do us a great honor, sato-san.
Cane: And I can have the contracts sent to your office this afternoon if that's convenient for you.
Mr. Sato: Thank you. It will be my pleasure to work with you, Ashby-san.
Cane: I'm thrilled. I'm thrilled. Thank you. Wow. Wow. What a rush. That was the most amazing meeting of my life. I can't believe we did it. I did it. I have a deal.
Juliet: Don't be so sure.
Cane: Why? Why?
Juliet: You had a deal, but then you broke all business protocol and deeply insulted him. What did I tell you about no touching, not to mention a bro hug.
Cane: What have I done? What have I done?
Juliet: My best guess? You just blew the deal.
Devon: Well, the normal thing would be for you to call first since you don't live here anymore.
Hilary: Oh, well, the normal thing would be for you to take your keys back if you don't want me using them.
Devon: And why are you using them?
Hilary: Because I am tired of these mixed signals, Devon. We're divorcing, and then you're kissing me? "Get out of my life," and then "how dare you go on that date!"
Devon: What is it that you want?
Hilary: Closure. I am not leaving here until you either forgive me or sign these divorce papers. Your choice.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Scott: Hey. Hi, Mom.
Cane: Let me come. I can apologize to him.
Juliet: It would really only make things worse.
Cane: What do we do if he doesn't come back?
Billy: We are totally screwed.
Victoria: Oh, God.
