Provided By Suzanne

Kevin: Mikey! Scott!

Lauren: What's going on?

Michael: Kevin?

Kevin: I've got news. Big news, important news.

Scott: Okay, with a build-up like that, it better be earth-shaking.

Kevin: I'm getting married.

Michael: [Laughs]

Kevin: Chloe said yes!

Scott: Congratulations, pal.

Kevin: Thank you.

Michael: It happened quicker than I expected! Oh!

Kevin: I told your advice, Mikey, did it up right. Top of the tower, flowers, champagne...

Lauren: Wait a minute. You knew about this and you didn't say anything?

Kevin: Hey, I thought you would be happy.

Lauren: Well, I mean, don't get me wrong. I love Chloe and I think it's remarkable how she has worked to turn her life around...

Michael: I get a heads up. Lauren is surprised. Huh?

Lauren: I'm just hoping you're not rushing into things.

Scott: Mom. Ma, they've been married before.

Lauren: I know. Are you sure you're not just trying to recapture what you once had?

Kevin: When Chloe first got back to town, that was my plan. I wanted my old life back. I wanted desperately to be Bella's dad. But my very wise fiancée forced me to take things slow. Start fresh free of the past. I don't want my old life back. I want a new life with Chloe and Bella.

Chloe: I just feel like everything is moving so fast, and I just want slow down and really enjoy it this time... I'm -- I'm sorry. What were guys gonna ask me?

Chelsea: Uh, you first.

Chloe: Okay. Well, um... ta-da! [Laughs]

Chelsea: What? Oh, it's beautiful! When did you --

Chloe: He asked me today. So, Kevin, um...he asked me to go to the top of the tower and I showed up and... well, he said that he wanted us to be a family, and he got down on one knee, and he... he really surprised me, and I want you to be my maid of honor. Or, I don't know, my matron of honor? I don't really know how that goes. I don't care what it is. I just you to be it. So please tell me that you will.

Chelsea: Of course. Of course I will. Yes. That's so exciting!

Chloe: I know. And Bella is gonna be the cutest little flower girl. And I want to wear white. Let's not be sticklers about everything. You know, I know that I've been married before, but I don't know, I'm feeling very fresh and glowy about Kevin, so... I'm really sorry. I'm -- I'm still talking about myself. Um... what did you guys want to ask me?

Chelsea: Um...

Nick: Well, we, uh... we wanted to ask you about this.

Chloe: Uh, what is that?

Nick: It's a GPS tracking device. We found it in Connor's stuffed dinosaur.

Chelsea: The one I took with me when I planned to leave town with Adam.

Chloe: Wow. That's crazy. How'd that get in there?

Nick: Why don't you tell us?

Reed: Well?

Tessa: Well, I think I'd like to see what this gorgeous piano can do.

Reed: Grandma, you want to show her?

Nikki: Oh, honey, I think she wants to hear you play.

Tessa: Well, is rock not in your repertoire?

Nikki: Well... [Chuckles]

[Piano plays]

[Guitar plays]

[Music stops]

[Door closes]

Victor: Well, I'll be damned. What a welcome. I love this. Want me to sing?

Reed: [Laughs]

Ashley: Jack.

Jack: Hey.

Ashley: I want to talk to you one last time before you pursue this hockey thing, okay?

Jack: Oh, I was gonna call you about that. I formally withdrew my offer to the league. Was there something else?

Ashley: Why the about-face?

Jack: I re-examined the deal. I realized you were probably right. We probably were risking over-extending ourselves. It was great opportunity for jabot, maybe not the right time to move on it.

Ashley: But you were adamant. Frankly, you were thrilled to be able to stick it to Billy one more time.

Jack: I just admitted you were right. I would think you'd be overjoyed.

Ashley: I'm just a little preoccupied. I keep wondering what really changed your mind.

[Cell phone chimes]

Abby: What are you doing here?

Victoria: Hi. I'm visiting my family. How are you?

Abby: Curious, how you have time to hang out here now that you own brash & sassy!

Victoria: Ahh, well, the first rule of being a C.E.O. Is to learn how to delegate. And I have a story I think dad will appreciate. Isn't he back from his trip?

Abby: Um, he'll be here soon, but I have an important business meeting scheduled with him, so...

Victoria: Okay. I'll just wait.

Victor: Well, now, don't stop on my account. I love this.

Nikki: Victor. Mmm! I thought you were going straight to the office.

Victor: Then I would have missed this.

Nikki: [Laughs] Hey, I want you to meet Tessa. This is reed's new music teacher.

Victor: Hi, Tessa. How are you?

Tessa: Nice to meet you.

Victor: All right.

Nikki: How was your trip?

Victor: Good. I'll tell you about it later, okay?

Nikki: Okay.

Victor: Got to go back to the office. So, um, how about a little, whatever you call it, to accompany my exit? What do you think?

Reed: You got it, grandpa.

[Electric guitar plays]

Victor: Bye-bye!

Nikki: Bye-bye! [Laughs]

Chloe: Why would you think I would know something about a GPS tracker?

Nick: Well, you were living with Chelsea at the time, so you had access to her place. You're the only one who knew that that stuffed dinosaur was Connor's favorite toy.

Chloe: Whoa. The only one? Everybody in his preschool knows about Dino. I mean, everybody who rides the elevator in this building knows. Even the barista at crimson lights knows how much Connor loves Dino.

Chelsea: I just want you to be honest with me.

Chloe: [Scoffs] Yeah, I -- yeah, I did it.

Chelsea: You were spying on me?

Chloe: No, I was -- I was trying to protect you. Please. Just listen to me. When I came back, I was here with Bella, and everything was so good. I was reconnected with you, my best friend -- the best friend I've ever had -- and things were so great. And then some really bizarre stuff started happening, and... Adam attacked that prison guard, and I was really worried about you.

Nick: So that's when you got the tracking device.

Chloe: Yes. Exactly. Adam escaped, and I thought that you were gonna take everything and you were gonna run off with him and Connor, and I was so afraid that you were gonna wreck your life, I was gonna lose you. So I just -- I mean, I just wanted to be able to warn you that the cops were onto you, and then... that didn't happen and everything... everything went really wrong.

Chelsea: Why didn't you ever tell me any of this?

Jack: You're right. I probably wouldn't have walked away from this deal without a little incentive.

Ashley: Something happened.

Jack: I kept hearing your voice in my head, accusing me of letting my anger over Billy's betrayal dictate my actions. I had to admit to myself that the primary reason I jumped at the chance to do business with these guys was that I could maybe stop Billy from getting a win.

Ashley: Well, thank you for being honest with me, Jackie. It was very upsetting, watching my brother become this ruthless and bitter person, channeling his inner Victor.

Jack: God forbid.

Ashley: And since you're being so honest with me... could you please tell me the real reason why you hired Gloria?

Jack: Gloria is an asset to jabot.

Ashley: She's not an asset. She's a liability and a menace.

Jack: You're not giving her a fair shot. Did you see the research I sent you, the analysis she did on the men's division?

Ashley: Oh, please, you did not hire Gloria because of her analytical acumen.

Jack: She is intelligent, she is experienced...

Ashley: She is vile, she is manipulative, she tried to destroy our family... how can you hold this grudge against Billy when you open your arms wide to Gloria? Would you trust me enough to tell me the truth? Why did you hire her? Why are you protecting her?

Jack: I am treating her as I would any other hardworking employee in this company, unlike you and Ravi, and I guess you don't want to talk about that.

Ashley: You're actually gonna compare Ravi to Gloria? That's absurd.

Jack: Yes, it is absurd because I would never invite Gloria to be my plus-one at the opera.

Ashley: Oh, my god. You are such a jerk. I had an extra ticket because you couldn't go, remember?

Jack: So you invited your protégé as your date?

Ashley: He was not my date.

Jack: I understand Ravi shook off his, uh, persona as the, uh, computer geek.

Ashley: Oh, you mean because he didn't wear a hoodie to the opera?

Jack: Apparently he wore a tuxedo, a very well-tailored tuxedo.

Ashley: [Laughing] Oh! Well...

Jack: Ash, I thought you drew the line here and made it clear to him you can only have a professional relationship.

Ashley: I did, and it is.

Jack: Well, apparently it didn't sink in. With you or Ravi. Look, he's not only an employee, he's much younger. This could be a problem. Fix it.

Victor: Victoria!

Victoria: Hello.

Victor: What a nice surprise, my sweetheart. So...?

Victoria: I know you're busy.

Victor: No, never too busy for you. Let's go.

Victoria: Aww.

Victor: Let's all come in. There we go.

Victoria: Thank you.

Abby: Thank you, dad.

Victor: So... tell me all about brash & sassy!

Victoria: Well, I actually --

Abby: You know what, I would love to hear about that, too, but, dad, you're on a very tight schedule today.

Victor: Oh. We do have an appointment.

Abby: Yes! Yes! To talk about the pitch that I mentioned to you. I've been working on it the whole time you were gone.

Victor: I really would to hear about that. But I think Victoria should stay and just listen in.

Victoria: Yeah. Of course.

Abby: You know what, I don't think that would be appropriate since she doesn't work here anymore, and this is a confidential Newman enterprises matter.

Victoria: Well, I am still on the board.

Abby: Well, perhaps that's something that should be addressed.

Victor: Abby, since your idea has nothing to do with cosmetics, I don't think there would be a conflict of interest. And you'll be very discreet, won't you?

Victoria: Always.

Abby: I've loaded all the slides on here so you can refer to this as we go along.

Victor: Hmm.

Abby: Um, sorry, Victoria. I don't have one for you.

Victor: Your sister and I can share, okay?

Abby: Great. Let me just sync this thing up.

Victoria: I wanted to tell you about a power play I pulled. I think that you'll appreciate it.

Victor: Tell me.

Victoria: Well, jack Abbott tried to steal one of my perspective deals, and I got him to withdraw his offer.

Victor: Ooh! I love that.

Victoria: Mm-hmm. Yeah.

Victor: In other words, I taught you well.

Victoria: You did.

Victor: Good.

Victoria: And aside from getting to wipe that smug look off of jack's face, I also learned something else. Jack's been very careless and reckless. I think it's something that Newman can capitalize on.

Abby: [Clears throat] A company as vast as ours can never stop innovating, nor can we have enough revenue stream. So I propose a cost-effective restructure here at Newman tower offering space to start-up tech companies. You might be asking, "what's in it for us?" Well, as you can see, Newman gets a percentage on each deal.

Victor: I think that's cutting-edge. We'll get in on the ground floor.

Victoria: Well, that certainly might work for a tech company, but here?

Abby: Well, it's minimal risk, monumental gain.

Victoria: Well, a few start-up companies are hugely successful, but the odds are against you when thousands show no profit. I mean, that's just my opinion.

Abby: Well, Victoria --

Victoria: But you don't have to listen to me. I know you're not going to.

Victor: Nonsense. You've run this company before so Abby will welcome your input. Won't you, darling? I don't want you girls to forget that we are family, all right?

Kevin: I appreciate you looking out for me, and from the outside, maybe it looks like this has all happened fast. But Chloe and I, we have worked really hard to get to this good place. I've never been happier or more sure about anything in my life.

Lauren: Okay. Then I'm happy for you. Although, I doubt Gloria's reaction is gonna resemble anything close to joy.

Kevin: Yeah, I'm not in a rush to tell mom, so if you run into her...

Michael: Be mum with mum. Got you.

Scott: I'm just glad I got to hang out with you and Chloe at the underground and, uh, got to know her a little bit.

Kevin: Oh! She's not normally like that.

Lauren: Like what?

Kevin: Yeah, well, raising a toddler, we're normally pretty low-key.

Lauren: Like what?

Scott: Drunk. Very drunk.

Lauren: Oh.

Scott: Chloe had a few shots, she, uh, danced a little bit, and then a few more shots. I'm just glad you're not resembling a boring married couple yet.

Michael: I take exception to that.

Lauren: Yeah. Who are you calling boring, son?

Scott: Never you, mom.

Lauren: [Chuckles]

Kevin: Michael... will you be my best man? We want everyone that we love to be a part of this.

[Cell phone chimes]

Lauren: Is everything okay?

Scott: Yeah. Sorry. Victor wants to see me.

Lauren: About what?

Scott: Guess I'll find out soon enough. See ya.

Lauren: Bye. Mwah!

Scott: Bye.

Michael: Bye.

Kevin: [Clears throat]

Michael: Uh... I would be honored to be your best man, um... I'm proud of you for all your hard work and for the love and patience you've shown Chloe.

Kevin: Thank you. And, Lauren, will you give me some advice on what the fashion-conscious grooms are buying at Fenmore's? 'Cause my taste goes more to cosplay and video games.

Lauren: Ah, come on. You look great. But you know what, try our virtual dressing room. It has all the latest styles, and we have a wedding category.

Kevin: Ah!

Lauren: Right?

Kevin: As a geek who loves a good algorithm but knows nothing about fashion trends, I thank you.

Lauren: But you know what? The only thing Chloe's gonna be looking at is the love in your eyes.

Michael: [Laughs]

Chloe: I had forgotten all about that tracker after everything that happened.

Nick: So you're not still keeping tabs on Chelsea.

Chloe: No! Why would I do something like that? I mean, does that thing even work after all this time?

Chelsea: I think the battery's dead.

Chloe: I would never spy on you, Chelsea.

Chelsea: Then, Chloe, why did you --

Chloe: Because I was worried. I came back, you accepted me... I finally got your friendship back, and I was only trying to protect you with that tracker, and I know that that sounds stupid and really pathetic, but it is the truth.

Chelsea: I believe you.

Nick: Yeah. Thanks for clearing all this up.

Chloe: Please tell me that you'll accept my apology. I'm so sorry.

Chelsea: For what? For worrying about me? Come here. Silly thing.

Chloe: I'm so sorry. Wait, are you still gonna be my maid of honor?

Chelsea: Of course! And I am making your dress!

Chloe: Oh, well, who else? Okay. So glad this is out in the open.

Chelsea: Mm-hmm.

Chloe: Okay. I have a wedding I need to plan.

Chelsea: Let me know what else I can help with.

Chloe: Okay.

Nick: Congratulations again.

Chloe: Thanks, nick. Bye.

Chelsea: Bye.

Nick: Bye.

Chelsea: [Exhales sharply]

[Door closes]

Nick: Do you believe her?

Chelsea: Yeah. I mean, you know... what she said made sense.

Nick: Yeah, I guess so.

Chelsea: Why do you sound like you think she's lying?

Nick: I don't know. It feels off. But it couldn't have been Chloe. She couldn't have gone to see Adam that night because, uh, you know, she was here, and the building was surrounded by police.

Chelsea: Yeah. That's right. I mean, the cops were stationed outside my door.

Nick: Yeah, so it would have been impossible for Chloe to go to the cabin to see Adam, not without the police seeing her.

Chelsea: Oh, my god. Actually, there was a way.

Tessa: Mmm.

Nikki: So, um, can I get you anything else, Tessa?

Tessa: Oh! No. I wasn't that hungry, so...

Reed: Yeah, especially after you finished my sandwich and Grandma's.

Tessa: [Laughs] Maybe it's been a while since I've had a decent meal. Nikki, you make a mean turkey sandwich.

Nikki: Oh, thank you, but I really can't take any credit for it. We have a chef here.

Reed: Now, Tessa, um... I need to know what you think of my playing.

Tessa: Um, you've got a great ear, and you're feeling the music, which I something that nobody can teach. If you want to get better...

Reed: I -- I do. I mean... I want to be like the best.

Tessa: Well, you need to play, reed. Play real music all the time. In front of people, with other musicians, not just sitting in your room going over mindless exercises and scales. But not everybody thinks that way. Uh, your tempo and timing need work. You need to hear that metronome in your head when you play. But that comes from hours and hours of practice.

Reed: I can do that. Um, if you'd want to keep teaching me.

Tessa: I could do once a week.

Reed: Cool.

Nikki: Oh, and you can work right here so you can use the piano. And there will be snacks involved.

Tessa: Ooh! That'll work. [Laughs] You have serious piano skills. Did you ever play in concerts or clubs?

Nikki: [Chuckles] No. It's just a hobby. Reed is our aspiring rock star in the family. How about you?

Tessa: I've been playing music as long as I can remember.

Nikki: Where did you get started?

Tessa: I've lived all over. This seemed like an okay town and I heard some good things, so here I am.

Reed: You're so good. What were doing just playing at the coffeehouse?

Tessa: Because playing is what I do. A funky club, a coffeehouse, a big beautiful house. It doesn't matter. It's about the music. Music's why I get up in the morning.

Ashley: So, jack, since your meeting is over, I'd like to continue our conversation about your sexist double standard.

Jack: Which one?

Ashley: Very funny.

Jack: Oh, we're still talking about your relationship with Ravi?

Ashley: Just out of curiosity, how many models and secretaries have you hooked up with over the years?

Jack: Ooh, then you are hooking up.

Ashley: No. I'm not. We have a friendship, Ravi and I. He knows all about that and he's fine with it.

Jack: Uh-huh, and what about you? Are you fine with that? You happy to have just a friendship?

Ashley: You know, I don't think my friendship with Ravi's actually any of your business, jack.

Jack: As long as you two are working for me, it is my business.

Ashley: Life is so funny, isn't it? Maybe we won't be working for you that much longer.

Jack: You know, for someone who keeps threatening to take over here at jabot, you might want to take out your employee handbook and refresh yourself on the company police regarding inter-office romance.

Ashley: Hmm, you know, I seem to have misplaced my handbook, but I can always borrow Gloria's. She seems to have a better understanding of your hiring practices than anybody.

[Knocks on door]

Jack: Ash...

Lauren: Hi.

Ashley: Hi.

Lauren: Uh, your watchdog wasn't at her post.

Ashley: See, yet another reason why Gloria should not be working here. Hi.

Lauren: Hi!

Ashley: How are you?

Lauren: Good. How are you? Well... uh... Ashley's not joining us for this meeting?

[Door closes]

Victor: Scott Grainger. You remember my daughters Victoria and Abby.

Victoria: Hi. It's been a while. I saw you at Lauren and Michael's wedding last.

Scott: That's right.

Abby: You're a reporter now. Yeah, I've read a lot of your coverage. You have an amazing career.

Scott: Well, thank you.

Victoria: It's good to have you back in Genoa city.

Scott: Well, I have your dad to thank for that, and, uh, nice to see you girls.

Victoria: You, too.

Victor: All right, Scott, please come in. Bye, girls.

Victoria: Bye, dad!

Victor: Bye, sweetie.

Abby: Bye, dad.

Victor: Come in, Scott.

Abby: You couldn't just let me have this, could you?

Victoria: Dad asked for my input and I gave it.

Abby: And made me look bad.

Victoria: Do you know how many of my ideas dad rejected when I worked here? Most of them.

Abby: Well, Victoria, you don't work here anymore, so why are you butting in?

Victoria: Why are you making this personal?

Abby: Because you crashed my business meeting with dad just to brag about how you pulled one over on jack.

Victoria: Okay, so I guess I'm guilty of bad timing.

Abby: No, intentional timing. You can't stand that I'm next in line to take over. You're trying to sabotage me.

Victoria: This paranoia, it's not attractive and it does not suit you well, Abby.

Abby: [Scoffs]

Scott: I've been waiting and wondering what's happened to my friend Ahmed. It's been driving me crazy.

Victor: And I told you that I would help you find him.

Scott: And for that, I am very grateful. So... have you learned anything?

Victor: I have indeed, but I think it's something that you need to hear for yourself.

Scott: He's okay. Ahmed and his family, they're actually okay. Thank you, Victor. Thank you for finding him. I mean, you did everything you said you would.

Victor: I am glad I could help.

Scott: It's a real relief to hear from him, but he couldn't say where he was. Do you think he's still in danger?

Victor: Well, it's a precaution, but I can assure you that he is in a safe place. And for your information, I also took care of his family's financial needs. I thought that was the least I can do. This man helped you enormously.

Scott: That's beyond. I mean, saving the life of my friend and colleague is something that I also can never repay. I wouldn't even know where to begin.

Victor: Well, there's something you can do for me.

Chelsea: You knew about the hidden passageway?

Nick: Dylan told me about it, but I'd never seen it. How did it even get there? Adam?

Chelsea: Yes.

Nick: Okay, the important thing is that Chloe knew about it.

Chelsea: How do you know that?

Nick: Because she was with me when Dylan told me about it. She knew, Chelsea.

Chelsea: When did the police find it?

Nick: I'd guess an hour or two after you took off with Connor to meet up with Adam at the cabin.

Chelsea: Okay. So even if Chloe was able to follow me there, how would she get out of here? The police, they would have been monitoring that passageway.

Nick: Well, there was an amber alert, right, for Connor. And for you. Chloe wasn't even on their radar. They were looking for you, and if Chloe knew where that cabin was because of the GPS tracker...

Chelsea: You really think that Chloe would be able to drive to that cabin, follow me there, and knowing how important Adam was to me, she would be able to... no. This is crazy. It's crazy, nick. Adam's death was an accident.

Nick: If the police got it right, Chelsea. They were so fast to close this case.

Chelsea: You seriously think Chloe could have caused that explosion? You -- I mean, you really think that she could kill my husband?

Nick: You know how much she hated Adam.

Chelsea: This is Chloe we're talking about, not some cold-blooded demolitions expert.

Nick: Okay, well, what about the GPS tracker?

Chelsea: She explained that.

Nick: And the view from the cabin?

Chelsea: I guess I must have mentioned it.

Nick: Really? In all the excitement after the explosion and the investigation, you took the time out to tell her how the lake looked from the porch?

Chelsea: She's my best friend.

Nick: Which makes even more sense that you and Connor weren't there. She would want to make sure that you two were safe. Adam was her target.

Chelsea: Okay. You need to stop this. You need to stop this right now. Chloe forgave Adam, okay? She had changed. Do you know what I was going through after Adam died? I was a mess, and she -- she took care of me. There's no way that she could live under this roof with me and see the agony I was in and be able to keep up this -- this monstrous lie.

Nick: I'm not saying she did it and I'm not saying she didn't do it. I'm just saying that there are some things need to look at here. There's a lot of loose ends. But if you don't think you can do it...

Chelsea: No, I mean, I guess I need to know for certain, but...

Nick: Well, we have to figure out if Chloe left the apartment that night.

Chelsea: Where are we gonna even find this evidence? It has been months.

Nick: If she took the passageway, there's not gonna be any video footage from the building.

Chelsea: I mean, I guess we could look at neighboring buildings, but it's a long shot.

Nick: This GPS tracker -- it connects with an app on your phone. This is how we're gonna get our evidence.

Kevin: There's my future wife! What you up to?

Chloe: I was, um... I was just looking for my shoes.

Kevin: [Laughs] I like the way you're prioritizing our wedding to-do list.

Chloe: You know, you can never underestimate the importance of perfect footwear.

Kevin: Well, I hope you don't mind marrying someone who's completely fashion-challenged.

Chloe: I love you exactly how you are. Mwah!

Kevin: I love you, too. I just came from Michael and Lauren's, shared the news... Michael's gonna be my best man.

Chloe: Chelsea's in as my maid of honor and premier dressmaker.

Kevin: That's fantastic. So, when do you want to do this?

Chloe: I want this to happen as soon as possible.

Kevin: Me, too. All right, I'm gonna look at wedding venues, and you get back to the important business of shoes.

Chloe: Hey. I can't wait to be your wife. [Sighs]

Jack: I just called this meeting to discuss how you felt things were going with this merger.

Lauren: You know what, things have gone smoother than I ever anticipated.

Jack: Despite your misgivings at the top?

Lauren: Let's just say you have made my Fenmore's team feel very welcome.

Jack: And there's no arguing with the numbers. Virtual dressing room is exceeding all expectations. You should be very proud of what you've accomplished.

Lauren: [Chuckles] Well, that's thanks to Phyllis and Ravi.

Jack: Well, I'll let you thank them.

Lauren: Now, wait a minute. I thought you and Phyllis were doing fine working here together.

Jack: Well, we're managing to stay out of each other's way. It's no problem.

Lauren: Okay. Good. I, uh, did want to thank you for picking up the slack for me while I was waiting for word on Scott.

Jack: Hey, we're partners! I'm always gonna be there for you.

Lauren: I really appreciate it. You know, the last few weeks were very stressful, but that's all behind us now.

Jack: Well, like everyone else, I am very relieved you have your son back in Genoa city and that he's well. How did you manage to get him home? Is there something you can't tell me?

Abby: My own sister, torpedoing my idea.

Ashley: Honey, I don't think she deliberately tried to undermine you. I mean, she just took charge of brash & sassy!

Abby: [Laughing] Oh, that's not enough for her, mom. No, she cannot stand it that dad is taking me seriously, that he is grooming me. You know, she would leave brash & sassy! In a nanosecond if dad offered her the C.E.O. Position at Newman.

Ashley: Now, wait a second. Is Victor actually considering retiring?

Abby: I mean, yeah. He's stepped back. He still has final say in everything, but he's been delegating more.

Ashley: You do realize that's never happened before.

Abby: Mom, I really feel like if I make a good impression, dad could leave me the company. Unless Victoria steps in. Oh, yeah. You would love it. You would love for Victoria to walk away from brash & sassy! Since that's jabot's competition.

Ashley: I would not, not if it would hurt you.

Abby: It would pulverize me, mom. Nick and Victoria, they have walked away from Newman, and I am there, I am working my butt off. I am in the trenches and I still feel like I'm dad's backup plan. Maybe it's because I'm half-Abbott.

Ashley: Now, hold on a second. Granted, your father's had relationship problems with the Abbotts, but that doesn't mean that it diminishes you at all in his eye.

Abby: No, he has this weird thing about pure Newman blood.

Ashley: He loves you just as much as he loves his other children, honey.

Abby: Then how do I get him to promote me?

Ashley: [Sighs] You know, your father did not get to where he is today by taking no for an answer. So I think that if you really like this idea, you should act on it. And then when you're successful, he'll respect you even more for not kowtowing to him.

Scott: You want me to write your biography?

Victor: I intend to write my memoir, and I need an experienced co-writer.

Scott: But isn't there already some sort of, uh, another book out there that's --

Victor: There was an unauthorized, dreadful book called "ruthless," and I intend to set the record straight, update my story.

Scott: Well, I've seen enough to know that no one is all good or all bad. But the more powerful a person gets, the less conscious he is of his own flaws.

Victor: I can see how your opinions got you into trouble.

Reed: Grandma gave Tessa a ride back into town.

Victoria: So, how did the lesson go?

Reed: It was killer. I mean, I don't think there's a type of music that Tessa couldn't play.

Victoria: Sounds like she made quite a different impression than the instructor I hired. He looked good on paper.

Reed: I can't blame you for him. Because you did manage to stomp down your control-freak tendencies and let me work with Tessa.

Victoria: Thanks? So, where did she study? What's her, um, her technique?

Reed: Her technique is just doin' it. I mean, everything she's learned was just from going out and playing. It's not some like five-point system that you can see in like 100 videos online. She's good, and I'm not the only one who thinks so. Even grandma was blown away. And she even sat down and played with us.

Victoria: You had fun.

Reed: Yeah. And, um, Tessa's gonna be teaching me once a week now, so I'm gonna be practicing insanely from now to then.

Victoria: That's wonderful, reed. I am so proud of you.

Reed: Proud of me?

Victoria: Yeah, I'm proud of you for knowing what you want and for going after it.

Reed: Thanks, Mom. You know, you can be pretty great sometimes.

Victoria: Well, does that mean I score some "cool mom" points?

Reed: Yeah, you definitely leveled up today.

Victoria: Good.

Reed: [Laughs]

Tessa: Genoa City's kickin' it so far. I met some rich kid, singer-songwriter. Not sure how much talent he's got, but his family connections are off the chart.

Lauren: Jack, I needed someone who could come up with millions of dollars in cash...

Jack: You know I can access money. Why would you not call me? Why would you call Victor?

Lauren: It's not a competition! My son's life was at stake and I needed someone with connections.

Jack: Victor is not the only one in this town...

Lauren: ...Who was unafraid to bend rules and grease palms. And then I thought about us working together, and that created a complication. What if, god forbid, something went wrong? How could we continue to work together? And if everything went fine, I would owe you. Hence the complication.

Jack: Well, what do you think you're gonna get with Victor? His whole reason for being is creating complications.

Victor: I'm gonna tell the truth. That's the whole point of the book.

Scott: Well, if you want people to believe that your book is more accurate than the unauthorized biography, then let an independent journalist vet everything you say.

Victor: You go ahead and check the facts. When, where... but I'm the only one who knows why.

Scott: And are you truly willing to be honest with me about it?

Victor: Are you willing to write the book?

Scott: I am, but only if you are willing to be truthful and let me write about every detail of your life, Victor. Even the parts you'd rather skip. Are you willing to do that?

Chloe: Hello, Adam.

Kevin: Babe, most decent venues are booked till next year! But not to worry -- I'm gonna find one. Nothing's gonna keep me from getting you to the altar.

Nick: Cell phone companies can track locations via cell towers.

Chelsea: How are we gonna get our hands on those? What, do we ask Paul?

Nick: Look, if we do that and Paul decides to reopen this case, my father could get arrested for planning Adam's escape from prison.

Chelsea: Well, the phone company is not just gonna release the records to us. Doesn't Newman Enterprises have interest in cell phone providers?

Nick: If Chloe's a subscriber to one of them, maybe they'll give us that information with some carefully applied pressure.

Chelsea: Meaning what? They'll give them to Victor Newman's son?

Nick: Look, it's worth a shot. And we may not like what we find, but we have to do this. We need answers and we will get them.

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

Mariah: You want to date me?

Jordan: You're Hilary Curtis. You command the spotlight just by being you.

Kevin: It's about Chloe and me. We're getting married.

Gloria: Oh, God.

Esther: What?!
