Ashley: Mm. Plain tomato juice, huh?
Billy: Ssh. You'll ruin my reputation. So, tell me, how's everything at the ancestral abode? 'Cause, of course, I'm still banned from the property.
Ashley: Yeah, you know, actually, we could have had breakfast there today.
Billy: Not with Jack there, we couldn't.
Ashley: He's out of town on business.
Billy: Now you tell me?
Ashley: Such a relief, not arguing with him every day at work.
Billy: Yeah, grapevine tells me there's a power struggle at Jabot.
Ashley: Huh. Well, I mean, I did tell him he doesn't get to be a dictator. I've already taken over a big chunk of his job.
Billy: How's that going for you?
Ashley: Let's just say that we butt heads a lot less when he's in another city. Frankly, Billy, I am not thrilled with our brother's tactics.
Billy: Well, I got to say, the Fenmore deal --
Ashley: I know.
Billy: Not as bizarre as it looked.
Ashley: I agree, but I don't like the way he went about it. I mean, he was pressuring Lauren, he was scaring off investors, colluding with Gloria, of all people, and hiring her with her history? Please.
Billy: Yeah, I can't wrap my head around that one, either, but I have to say, with the virtual dressing room -- that's genius. And JabotGo, I mean, you guys are knocking it out of the park over there.
Ashley: From what I've seen in the trades, we have to. Brash & sassy! Is nipping at our heels.
Billy: Well, you know us.
Ashley: Uh-huh. Quite the coup you made with Sato. He is a fierce negotiator.
Billy: Yeah, that was Cane's baby. He's the one that deserves the ticker-tape parade, not me.
Ashley: Wait a minute. Why didn't Victoria give you that assignment?
Billy: She has her reasons.
Ashley: Billy, I thought things were going well with you and Victoria. Am I wrong?
Victoria: Yes, you can quote me on that. Oh, you're welcome. Bye-bye. Honey, what are you doing out of school?
Reed: I had a free period, and you didn't sign the authorization for my driver's ed slip.
Victoria: [Gasps] Oh, I am sorry! I meant to get to it last night. [Sighs] Oh, dear. I forgot a permission slip for Johnny, too. I mean, I really do try to stay on top of this paperwork, but I haven't been able to lately. Sorry.
Reed: No, I can see how busy you've been.
Victoria: Are you upset with me because I took a call during your performance at open mic?
Reed: Hey, it couldn't wait. I mean, you just had to answer it.
Victoria: Well, it was Japan. It was urgent business.
Reed: So your business is more important than anything your kid does?
[Knocks on door]
Ravi: Hey, have you seen Ashley? She's not at her desk.
Gloria: Oh, I hope nothing's wrong.
Ravi: I just need to talk to her.
Gloria: Top of the tower. Oh, uh, Ravi, um, Mr. Abbott will be back in the office today, and he's expecting that report you owe him.
Ravi: I'll get right on it.
Gloria: Oh, and also, I know that you and Ashley have a special connection, but let's not forget who the big boss is around here.
Ravi: Oh, Mr. Abbott! Uh, welcome back.
Jack: Hello, Ravi.
Gloria: Well, Mr. Abbott, welcome back. Aren't you looking rested? And satisfied.
Jack: You should have set the alarm for when I asked you to.
Gloria: I know, but your plane got in so late and we were up half the night, so I decided you deserved to sleep in. I came in and organized your day.
Jack: Where's Ashley?
Gloria: Breakfast meeting.
Gloria: Not big on sharing information, that one. Which freed me up while you were gone to take care of some things on your behalf. I assumed you wouldn't mind if I took the liberty.
Jack: What liberties have you taken?
Cane: Lily! [Sighs]
Colin: All hail the triumphant hero.
Colin: Or am I being too presumptuous?
Cane: No, actually, it was a phenomenal trip. I signed a multi-million-dollar deal with Asia's biggest cosmetics distributor.
Colin: Wait, does this mean that Brash & Sassy! Is now on sale in Australia?
Cane: Yeah, as well as New Zealand, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, and Japan.
Colin: Excellent. This should cement your position in the company.
Cane: Yeah. Victoria's pleased.
Colin: I would imagine that's an understatement.
Cane: Yeah. So, um, where's Lily?
Colin: Uh, out. Uh, I don't know where.
Cane: Oh, yeah, she probably wasn't expecting me home this early.
Colin: Uh, look, I don't want to be a buzzkill here...
Cane: Why, what's up?
Colin: Well, I got in last night and found this strange man sleeping on the couch.
Lily: Well, thank God Jordan showed up when he did. Otherwise, who knows what that creep might have tried.
Neil: What the hell is the matter with people?
Lily: I don't know. It was horrible.
Neil: Hey. Come here. The guy's been arrested. You're safe. It's over.
Lily: I know. And Jordan did tell me how to handle the situation. But Cane won't be home till later, and I really don't want to deal with this on my own.
Neil: I hear you. And whatever you need, whatever it is, I'm right here.
Esther: Good girl. You ate every bite of your egg-white omelet.
Jill: I am a good girl. What's my prize?
Esther: The green tea that you didn't finish. Here you go.
Jill: I kept wishing that it would turn into espresso.
Esther: I can make you some decaf.
Jill: They don't call decaf "why bother?" For nothing, Esther.
Esther: That ring you've been wearing...
Jill: Oh, this is the one I was telling you about.
Esther: From Phillip?
Esther: May I see it?
Esther: It's gorgeous!
Jill: Mm-hmm! Now that I have it, I am never taking it off.
Esther: I'll get it. [Gasps] Nikki!
Nikki: Hi, Esther.
Esther: Oh, what a nice surprise!
Nikki: Well, um, Jill asked me to come by.
Esther: Okay, well, it's lovely to see you anyway. It's been a while since you've been here, huh?
Nikki: Years. Lots of memories.
Esther: Jill's in the living room.
Nikki: Hey, Jill.
Jill: Thank you for stopping by.
Nikki: Well, you look well.
Jill: I should have told Esther that I was expecting you.
Nikki: Oh, not to worry. I should have come sooner.
Jill: Well, there's no need. [Chuckles] The patient's fine. I do have some questions for you.
Nikki: About what?
Jill: About Katherine. You're the only one who can answer them.
Cane: [Sighs] Okay. Then tell me more about this mystery man.
Colin: Well, I didn't wake him up and interrogate him or anything like that. By the time I came in, he and Lily were gone. He was a good-looking guy.
Cane: Well, if it's, uh, who I think it is, it's someone Lily works with. They're all friends.
Colin: You seem to be taking this rather lightly.
Cane: Well, why wouldn't I be?
Colin: If my wife had another man sleep over while I was out of the country, I... you know, I might be a bit suspicious.
Neil: A restraining order?
Lily: Yeah. That should keep this "don" person from spying on me again. I want to move on this right away.
Neil: Damn right, you should. Can't be too careful now that you're back in the public eye.
Lily: Yeah, I had him arrested, so there is a police report.
Neil: That should mean the hearing should go smoothly.
Lily: Yeah, but it's still unnerving, you know? Addressing the judge and all that.
Neil: I'll give Leslie a call, have her meet us at the courthouse, okay?
Lily: Thanks, dad.
Victoria: Reed, hold on! Stop, honey!
Victoria: We need to talk about this. Of course my work is not more important than you. You didn't want me to come to the underground, right? But I showed up anyway! I was so excited to hear you perform. And what I saw before I took the call, and -- and hearing the crowd from nick's office, it sounded like you did an amazing job! I'm sorry, okay? I'm sorry I missed the whole song.
Reed: Zoey said it was awesome.
Victoria: Yeah, I could see how enthusiastic she was.
Reed: Here it comes.
Victoria: I know you like her, but she's a distraction.
Reed: From what?
Victoria: You have a lot going on! You have school, you have your music, you have driver's ed now.
Reed: I can handle it!
Victoria: Weren't you just the one giving me a hard time about trying to balance too much?
Reed: [Scoffs] Will you please just stop?
Victoria: Looking out for you?!
Reed: No! Trying to control me! Trying to control everything!
Ashley: Things are that bad?
Billy: No. Things are actually good. We're chugging right along as parents.
Ashley: I thought you wanted something more.
Billy: I don't see that happening.
Ashley: Really? Not ever?
Billy: Victoria has her walls up, and I don't blame her.
Ashley: Mm. Still, it has to bleed into your business relationship, especially with her in charge now.
Billy: No, no, that is all good because she was born to run that company.
Ashley: Okay, wait, Billy -- no tension, no conflict, no awkwardness of any kind? Please.
Billy: Look at you, huh? Okay, look, sometimes she gets into boss-lady mode and she ends up sounding like Victor...
Ashley: Okay. So is that why she gave that assignment to Cane? Was she trying to send you a message of some sort?
Billy: No. I did question her choice, but it turns out that it was the right one. Along with Juliet holding his hand, of course.
Ashley: Okay, who's Juliet?
Billy: She's a regional consultant and she knows what she's doing. And supposedly, Cane had done some work in Japan before and he didn't completely embarrass himself, but I got to say, the best thing about it -- putting a cap on his constant whining about being under-appreciated.
Ashley: Okay, I guess that was a smart move, right?
Ashley: However, it still had to bug you that Cane was given the assignment and he aced it.
Billy: Look, I'm working on something of my own, and once it hits, it's gonna be "Cane who?"
Ashley: Oh, really? Anything you want to share with your sister?
Billy: I'm looking to move Brash & Sassy!'S men's line into the sports world.
Ashley: Professional tie-ins and sponsorship deals?
Billy: Got to know exactly where our audience is.
Ashley: Mm. Didn't Brash & Sassy! Do something in that realm like a year ago?
Billy: No, no, no, that was Cane's idea and it was strictly short-term and half-baked. No, what I'm working on is much, much bigger than that.
Billy: And when it launches, you and Jack aren't gonna know what hit ya.
Gloria: Comparative analysis of Jabot's biggest rivals. Merchandising, marketing, sales. And you might notice over here that Brash & Sassy! Has some very weak areas. Might be, uh, useful information in the quarter ahead, hmm?
Jack: Nice work. Very impressive.
Gloria: We've come a long way, Jack.
Jack: I appreciate the initiative.
Gloria: It's just a little reminder that I do more than pour coffee and answer phones. I've proved my worth. I've proved my loyalty.
Jack: I will consider giving you more responsibility, but this doesn't change things between us. If that's what you were hoping for, that's not going to happen.
Esther: Uh, Nikki, I made this tea especially for you. And Jill already has hers.
Nikki: Oh, well, thank you very much.
Esther: You're welcome.
Nikki: Uh, listen, Jill keeps saying that she's just fine, but, uh, I'd like some confirmation.
Esther: Well, so far, so good. Dr. Lang put her on a Mediterranean diet.
Jill: And colonel valentine monitors every single morsel I put in my mouth, don't you?
Nikki: What about exercise?
Jill: I've been walking, and next week, I take my stress test, and if I pass that, I go into cardiac rehab. When dr. Lang told me that I'd had a heart attack, I really didn't believe her.
Esther: Jill kept insisting that there was nothing wrong and she wanted to go home.
Nikki: I'm sure she did.
Jill: Well, I would have thought that I'd be in agony, you know, clutching my chest and keeling over and... I don't know, it was like a hot flash with a little nausea.
Esther: And you were lightheaded, short of breath, white as a sheet, and pouring sweat.
Jill: I really don't think Nikki needs to hear the blow-by-blow, Esther.
Nikki: No, I'm aware that the symptoms for men and women can often be quite different.
Jill: Well, it's very true. I actually had some warning signs, but I thought it was heartburn. I popped a few antacids and then I went on my merry way. I couldn't believe that I had had a heart attack when she told me that. It really is a silent killer.
Esther: Yeah, it took princess Leia just like that.
Jill: I'd also been skipping my regular check-ups, and that is something I won't do again.
Nikki: Well, we are so lucky to have such good medical care. I mean, there are women out there who have never had their cholesterol checked or never had an EKG. You know, I think I just came up with my new cause. I'm going to help women become more proactive in learning more about their heart!
Esther: Oh! That is a wonderful idea! Isn't it, Jill?
Jill: I think it's a splendid idea. Esther, I think it would be a splendid idea if you gave us a little privacy, too.
Esther: Okay. Holler if you want more tea.
Jill: Okay. Do you recognize that ring?
Nikki: [Gasps] It's magnificent. Is this a fauchet?
Jill: Mm-hmm. It's a very, very rare piece, and it is worth a fortune. So... did Katherine ever show it to you?
Nikki: I don't understand. What does that have to do with Katherine?
Ravi: I'm so sorry. Are you okay?
Ashley: Yes, of course, I should have watched where I was going.
Ravi: No, no, it was totally my fault.
Ashley: It's okay.
Ravi: Um, look, I'm glad I caught you. I wanted to talk to you before you got too busy at work.
Ashley: Okay. Sure. Let's -- uh, let's go talk over here. Is everything okay?
Ravi: Oh, everything's fine. Look, first off, I just -- I wanted to say thank you for last night. I mean, letting me escort you to the opera benefit -- that was a spectacular evening, and I was so honored to be included.
Ashley: It was fun. I really enjoyed myself. You're certainly full of surprises.
Ravi: So are you. Thought you said you didn't like the opera.
Ashley: I don't, usually.
Ravi: I could see that you were moved by the performance.
Ashley: I was. I mean, the emotion and the music... it got me. And, frankly, that doesn't usually happen when I go to the opera, but, you know, that story... it was very hard not to get caught up in that.
Ravi: How could anyone watch the heroine suffer and not respond to her passion and heartache? I mean, anyone that's been in love... [Chuckles] Okay, now I'm embarrassed.
Ashley: No, it's fine.
Ravi: No, it's really not. Please stop pretending otherwise.
Victoria: I only want what's best for you.
Reed: Parents always say that. It's code for being a control freak.
Victoria: [Sighs] I'm sorry you feel that way.
Reed: You can't order me not to like someone.
Victoria: Okay, let me put it this way. Zoey is a queen bee. She's in the popular crowd.
Reed: [Scoffs] And that's a crime?
Victoria: She and her friends get to choose who's cool and who's not, and that gives her a lot of power -- power that can be misused.
Reed: You barely know her!
Victoria: I know the type!
Reed: And it makes her evil because people like her? I mean --
Billy: What's going on? No school today?
Reed: No, I'm on a break between classes.
Billy: Yeah, I hear you. I've been on a break between classes for years now.
Victoria: Uh, Reed and I are having a heart-to-heart.
Reed: About how Zoey's some bumble bee or something.
Victoria: Queen bee, actually.
Reed: She's saying that I shouldn't hang out with her. Can you please tell her that I'll be fine?
Billy: Perfect timing. Smack dab in the middle of it again.
Victoria: Actually, we could use a non-mom perspective.
Billy: All right. You -- I dated a girl like that in high school. You got to be careful, okay? Just make sure you stay in the driver's seat. And you -- he's 15 years old. He's not looking to settle down and get married. He's just trying to have a little fun, am I right? So if you can both keep that in the back of your mind, everything will be cool as a cucumber. Got it?
Ravi: Please forgive me.
Ashley: What for?
Ravi: There's a line we can never cross. We are friends and co-workers, nothing more. You made that abundantly clear. Regardless of how much I enjoyed last night, it was an anomaly, one that can't and won't be repeated.
Nikki: I just think that you and Ravi make a very cute couple.
Ravi: So, we good?
Ashley: Yeah. Of course.
Lily: I thought your plane didn't land till 4:00.
Cane: I was counting every minute till I could see you. Come here.
Colin: Uh, where'd you rush off to this morning?
Lily: Everything is fine now, but we just got back from the courthouse.
Cane: Why were you at the courthouse?
Lily: Well, I worked the wedding fair yesterday at the club, and there was this fan who got a little too friendly, and I didn't think anything of it, until Jordan came by to check on me later and he was standing outside the house taking pictures through the window.
Cane: Wait, hang on a second. Did you call the police?
Lily: Yeah, the police arrested him for trespassing, and I had to get a restraining order.
Cane: [Sighs] All right. I'm just glad you're okay. Well, how are the kids? Are the kids all right?
Lily: Yeah, yeah, yeah. They were safe in their rooms. They have no idea what happened. And before you ask, I have no idea how he knew where I lived. But thankfully, uh, the police said that the restraining order should keep him away.
Colin: Uh, I wish I'd been here to help.
Cane: Yeah, I wish I was, too.
Lily: That's okay. Jordan was on the couch so I wasn't alone.
Cane: Okay. All right. Remind me to thank him, okay?
Neil: Hey, uh, Colin, have you had any lunch?
Colin: It's a bit early, mate, I -- uh, yeah, maybe I am a bit peckish.
Neil: Yeah. Call me, okay? Call me if you need me.
Lily: I will. Thank you.
Neil: Love you.
Cane: Come here. I missed you.
Lily: I missed you.
Nikki: Did this ring belong to Katherine?
Jill: No, actually. It was mine. She just kept it from me for all those years, for all those decades. This was the wedding ring that Phillip wanted me to have. If only Katherine hadn't driven him to his death.
Nikki: Oh, you mean the accident...
Jill: Well, that was the version that Katherine fed you and everybody else, but I'm not interested in the old woman's revisionist history right now. Thing ring was kept in a safe deposit box along with... this letter.
Nikki: Oh! Katherine's handwriting.
Jill: Now, you see, I figured that you would be the one person she would have confided in about this.
Nikki: I -- I'm sorry, Jill. I -- I don't know anything about that ring, I -- I do recall occasionally talking to her about Phillip, but... [Sighs] It just seemed to be so painful for her whenever she would bring it up.
Jill: It was nothing compared to the pain she caused me.
Nikki: Jill, I thought that you had gotten over that.
Jill: I had, Nikki. Honest to God, I really had. Until I found out about this ring. Now, why wouldn't she have given me this before she died?
Nikki: Well, I -- I saw something in here. Here, look! Here. It's right here. Its says she couldn't face the truth, that Phillip was in love with you.
Jill: Oh, please! There was nothing on this planet that Katherine chancellor couldn't face! There has to be something more! Please. You were the daughter she never had. She must have confided in you. I'm looking for some insight. I'm looking for a little peace.
Nikki: Here. She had such shame and guilt... and fear. I mean, if anybody could cut her to the quick, it was you, Jill.
Jill: Katherine wasn't afraid of me.
Nikki: You would be surprised. As much as you two tormented each other, that relationship was so special for her. In fact, that's probably the answer to this whole thing.
Jill: What? What is?
Nikki: She loved you, Jill. As time went on, yes, maybe she did think that she should give you the ring back. But then she just felt that she couldn't do it, probably because she was afraid she would lose you forever!
Jill: God knows how many times I wanted to cut Katherine out of my life, but I could never bring myself to do it. So I just stuck around and kept the feud going. I gave as good as I got.
Nikki: But as time went on, you worked through your differences. You two had an extraordinary friendship. If you hadn't, she would not have written you that letter or given you Phillip's ring.
Jill: So you're saying that I should just be grateful that she did the right thing, even though it was years too late.
Nikki: I miss Katherine every day of my life. What I wouldn't give to hear from her again... you can't deny, Jill, that every challenge she threw your way made you stronger.
Jill: Or more bitter.
Nikki: She just could not ever get over losing Phillip, and so she blamed you so you both suffered. But in the end, she found happiness with Murphy. And she cherished every moment that she spent with people that she loved. And my wish would be for you to follow her example.
Jill: With Colin?
Cane: I hate that I was stuck on a plane when you needed me. Okay, listen. I'm gonna install a new security system with cameras, all right? I'll make sure the perimeter's secure so you and the kids are safe, okay?
Lily: That sounds great. But let's, uh, talk about something else.
Lily: Like your amazing trip.
Cane: Well, I think that closing a deal this massive makes me feel like I can conquer the world.
Lily: I'm really happy that you're excited about work again, and that you had a chance to celebrate.
Cane: Yeah, uh, Juliet was an amazing tour guide. She showed me all around Tokyo, and I can't believe how much the city's changed since I was last there.
Lily: Well, we should go one day.
Cane: Yeah, well, you will be front and center when we do the rollout when we go on our pacific rim tour.
Cane: Yeah, really. And I think, considering my new status upgrade, Victoria will give us a couple of days off to go and play.
Lily: Well, I am sure you're very high on her list of favorite people right now.
Cane: Yeah, to Billy's disdain, I would say.
Lily: Oh, who cares? I am just in awe of my talented husband.
Cane: Aww. Come here.
Reed: Chemistry's next, so I should probably take off. Um, thank you for signing my driver's ed slip. I'm really excited to get behind the wheel. Although, you probably won't have any time to practice with me.
Victoria: Well, I'll make time.
Reed: Awesome. Later.
Billy: See ya.
Victoria: Bye, honey.
Billy: [Clears throat]
Victoria: I, uh... I know you care about my son, and I appreciate that, but this is something that I want to do.
Billy: I get that.
Victoria: Thank you.
Billy: But now it's my turn. I had breakfast with my sister Ashley. She wants to congratulate you on the Asia deal.
Victoria: Well, she can afford to be magnanimous. The Jabot-Fenmore's merger is gonna keep them ahead of us in sales for some time.
Billy: Yeah, but not so fast on that. I've been in touch with a guy who's on the board of governors for the, uh, professional hockey league. He invited me down to the office to pitch Brash & Sassy! For...
Billy: ...To be the official men's line for the league.
Victoria: And you did this without consulting me?
Billy: Yeah, it's called showing initiative. That's what top executives do when they want to help the company grow exponentially the way I do. I want the same thing as you do, Vick. You don't believe me?
Ravi: So, Ravi, Jack's not gonna get to your report today. He's gonna be too snowed under from his trip, so if you need more time, you take it, all right? You don't report to Gloria.
Ravi: I'll remember that.
Gloria: [Sighs] Oh, about time! Jack's been waiting for you!
Ashley: And here I am.
Ashley: Hello. Welcome back.
Jack: Hey, sis!
Gloria: May I interest you in a cup of coffee, or...
Jack: Thank you for keeping an eye on things while I was away.
Ashley: I did more than that. Would you like a full report?
Jack: I would, but first, I have some interesting news.
Jack: While I was in new York, I had drinks with an old buddy of mine, Leon Hershel, a guy I knew from Harvard.
Ashley: Yeah, yeah, yeah. The sports lawyer.
Jack: That's the one, and not only does he have a full roster of high-profile clients, he is also on the board of governors of pro hockey.
Ashley: What does that have to do with Jabot?
Jack: Well, Leon gave me a heads up. Apparently our competition is angling to be the league's official line of men's grooming products.
Ashley: Oh, okay, so our competition, as in Billy.
Jack: Then you knew about this?
Ashley: I had breakfast with Billy this morning and he alluded to it.
Jack: Fraternizing with the enemy?
Ashley: Spending time with our brother, Jack.
Jack: Your brother.
Ashley: So, what? Are you scared?
Jack: No. Not at all. We're gonna cut him off at the pass.
Colin: That's what I call a steak.
Neil: Yeah, especially for someone who wasn't that hungry.
Colin: Well... one must learn to adapt.
Neil: This is where we fight each other for the check, I think.
Neil: I thought you were broke.
Colin: "Only the poor are handicapped by honor."
Neil: Okay. I guess that means I'm paying.
Colin: Thank you. More than generous. Thank you so much.
Neil: Well, I'm feeling very generous. My daughter's okay, so things are good.
Colin: Well, thank goodness that Cane is now home.
Neil: Any chance that you'll be following suit?
Colin: I am desperate to be with Jill. I've hardly seen her at all since the heart attack. It's killing me!
Neil: Well, you remember the advice that I gave you, right?
Colin: Be the man she fell in love with.
Neil: That's right. And make proper amends. Don't forget that part.
Colin: I've tried. I've poured my heart out. I paid back every penny I took. That blew up in my face. I even got her something that she really wanted. It wasn't enough. This time, I'm afraid that it might really be over.
Neil: Maybe you need to accept the things you cannot change, Colin.
Esther: Don't be such a stranger, Nikki.
Nikki: I'll try. Thank you.
Jill: So. You still haven't answered my question.
Nikki: No, I guess I haven't, have I?
Jill: No, you haven't. All right. Well, then, tell me what you think Katherine would have said. About Colin. Should I stand my ground? Or should I take him back?
Nikki: Well, when Victor and I got back together, Katherine was very supportive. She knew that we had hurt each other deeply, but she also was a great believer in second chances.
Jill: Yes, but she was also very fond of Victor. Colin, not so much.
Nikki: I think she would want you to examine your heart and decide for yourself whether your life would be better with or without Colin in it.
Nikki: Is that the answer you were looking for?
Nikki: Bye-bye, Jill.
Ashley: I know what you're doing and I don't like it.
Jack: We are already updating and revitalizing the men's line. With more variety and better products than Brash & Sassy! Could ever dream of!
Ashley: We have apps that are killing it! There are better ways to use our resources!
Jack: I've already fast-tracked this, ash.
Ashley: Since when?
Jack: Since this morning. I want all of our new products out front, full force.
Ashley: So now this line --
this line is now our top priority. This is about getting back at Billy and you know it. This is all about revenge.
Billy: Why am I getting the silent treatment? This is a big deal. I thought you would be pleased.
Victoria: I'm wondering if you're sincere about promoting this company or if you're just trying to out-do Cane.
Billy: Come on. Give me a break. I'll run circles around Cane.
Victoria: Okay. Convince me.
Billy: As gorgeous as Lily is, men look up to pro athletes. Hockey players are young and gritty, they're guy's guys. They will appeal to everybody that's never heard of body spray, let alone used it.
Victoria: Our regular campaign...
Billy: ...Will be in conjunction with that. We'll have ads in magazines, on the websites, in the arenas, on the boards, and we'll run commercials during the game. As we continue the rollout in the far east, we'll grow the U.S. And Canada. If we want to market to the men, we need to be where they are, and guys who watch hockey have the most disposable income, and their age is exactly our demographic, Vick. This is as close to perfect as it's gonna get.
Victoria: I'm sold. Run with it.
Billy: [Snaps, tap dances]
Lily: I can't stay.
Cane: Yes, you can. You can tell Marlene the photo shoot's been postponed, all right? I mean, tell her anything. I don't care what you tell her.
Cane: Just don't leave me.
Lily: It won't be long. I promise.
Cane: All right. Mmm. Hurry back, all right? While you're gone, I'm gonna unpack yours and the kids' gifts.
Lily: Ooh! I can't wait. Okay, I'll be right back.
Cane: All right. I love you. [Sighs] [Clears throat]
Colin: Are you telling me to give up?
Neil: At this point, what kind of marriage do you really have? I mean, from Jill's point of view. If you love this woman, she's in pain pushing you away. Do you think it's a good idea to keep pushing her back? Adding to her distress after everything she's been through, man?
Colin: Everything I've put her through. My wife feels betrayed. I mean... I can see it in her eyes every time she looks at me. I mean... maybe you're right. Maybe I should go back to Australia. [Sighs] It'd be tough leaving Cane and the kids. [Sighs] And I've caused them a lot of trouble, too.
Neil: Well, maybe giving them some space wouldn't be such a bad thing.
Colin: Yeah. I mean, we can still talk. Video chat.
Colin: Well, there remains one impediment to this, one that I'm embarrassed to bring up...
Neil: What's that?
Colin: Well, here we are, trying to do the right thing by Jill, and... I don't even have the funds to float a plane ticket.
Neil: I'll float you a loan.
Colin: Thank you. I'll pay you back. Just may take a little while. Well, there remains one more thing to do.
[Cell phone rings]
Colin: I'm calling to say I've hurt you too much and I don't want to do that anymore.
Ashley: You're letting your emotions cloud your judgment, Jack. This is all about sticking it to Billy and you know it.
Jack: I don't give a damn about that loser.
Ashley: Yeah, you could have fooled me.
Jack: We started this diversification with Fenmore's. Now we're building up the men's line, and we want to give it --
Ashley: You know what, just save it for somebody who doesn't know how irrational you can be.
Jack: Okay, that would make sense if decisions I've made have harmed this company. We are on top now, ash, and I am not going to apologize for wanting to keep us there.
Ashley: There's a better way of doing it, Jack. There's a better way to use our resources.
Jack: I've already made the decision. I'm moving ahead with or without your support. And I am not interested in besting the competition. I want to destroy it!
Billy: Mr. Hershel, it's Billy Abbott. I'm good, thank you. Listen, I wanted to, uh, just confirm my presentation for tomorrow. I'm sorry, what? Is that right? Okay, um, well, I hope to hear from you very, very soon. Thank you.
Victoria: What's wrong?
Billy: He wants to reschedule my appearance in front of the board. There's another company that's trying to outbid us for the exact same sponsorship rights.
Billy: Who do you think? It's Jabot!
Victoria: Oh, no, Billy! Hold on. Where are you going?
Billy: I am going to tell my brother that I don't appreciate his backstabbing, underhanded tactics.
Victoria: No. Billy! Instead of getting angry, let's beat Jack at his own game.
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Neil: I think you want to take over and would like for me to go behind your brother's back and help you pull it off.
Hilary: You need to help me convince Devon to give me the show as my settlement in the divorce.
Colin: Is this real? "Forgive Colin?"
