Episode # 11174 ~ Nick worries about his future with Chelsea; Nikki is tempted to open up to Jack; Billy scrambles to defend himself.
Provided By SuzanneHilary: Good thing you didn't walk off with this. It's expensive.
Lily: Good thing you didn't rip my wardrobe. It's a lot more expensive.
Hilary: Really? Hmm. Can't tell. So, it was a pretty good interview today, huh? Who would have thought?
Lily: You sound pleasantly surprised that it didn't suck.
Hilary: Well, I was just worried that my viewers would think that there you were a teensy bit overexposed at the moment.
Lily: No, it was just an ad campaign. It's not like my ex-husband gave me a one-hour syndicated shrine to myself five days a week streaming live on the internet.
Hilary: [Chuckles] You are so funny. You know, if only you were this interesting all of the time, maybe someone would give you your own show.
Lily: No, I'm too busy being paid as a brand ambassador, which involves brandishing a fake smile and pretending to be gal pals with someone who actually makes me sick.
Hilary: [Chuckles] Well, I won't put your limited acting abilities to the test again any time soon. See, I'm gonna be doing interviews with real celebrities, so I won't be able to waste my time with spokesmodels who are shilling for their husband's companies.
Lily: That does not look good.
Billy: I will call the hockey league officials, and I will straighten this out.
Victoria: Do you think that's all this is gonna take? You on the phone backpedaling? Because it's a little more serious than that.
Billy: Based on what, Vick?
Victoria: How about the incredibly terse e-mail that I just received letting me know that they're calling an emergency meeting with the board of governors, who are understandably livid that unauthorized video footage of their players talking about gambling is all over the web!
Billy: It was not a serious conversation! We were joking!
Cane: Be that as it may, the only people meant to see the footage were the league officials. How did this even happen?
Billy: Did you pass out from jet lag through this whole conversation? Juliet got an okay from the league saying that we were good to go, right?
Cane: Okay, well, clearly she's wrong.
Billy: I was there when you got off the phone. They said it was okay.
Juliet: Yes. I mean... I mean, I think so.
Cane: Oh, god!
Billy: You think so?
Victoria: Everybody, please just take a breath and calm down, okay? Let's just think about everything that's happened since the behind-the-scenes camera footage started rolling.
Billy: So, what? So you can assign blame?
Victoria: Like I said, one step at a time.
Nikki: Well, Jack, it's always nice to see you, but especially when you have presents. What's the occasion?
Jack: Well, does there need to be one? I read a nice review of this book. I thought you'd love it. The secret lives and tormented genius of classical music's greatest composers.
Nikki: Oh, my gosh. [Gasps] Look at this. Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Schumann, Bruckner. These are all my favorites.
Jack: Every one of them a rock star, every one of them their lives out of control.
Nikki: Wow. I can't wait to read it. It's gonna make my little problems seem minor in comparison.
Jack: Oh? Anything I need to know about?
Nikki: Uh, no, Jack. I'm afraid I have no gossip for you at all. I'm sorry. But I have been concerned about you. I've been wanting to give you a call after I saw your mother of all people on that "hurray for Hilary" or whatever she has rechristened GC buzz.
Jack: You're not the only one surprised to learn that my mother sold her company to Hilary's two exes.
Nikki: So I take it that you've had a visit with Dina since she's come back?
Jack: Briefly. More of a run-in than a visit.
Nikki: I'm sorry. I hope it wasn't too upsetting for you.
Jack: No, after all these years, I have come to have very low expectations where my mother is concerned. A subterranean low. It keeps everything on an even keel.
Nikki: Hmm. As I recall, your mother was a very...complicated woman.
Jack: My, that's a gracious way of saying it. Well, nothing's changed. She continues to be a confounding creature.
Nikki: Such a shame. I mean, she's your mother, and yet barely a part of your life.
Jack: And a part of me, the stupid part, wants to keep some connection with her while the other part wants to cut her loose for good.
Nikki: And nobody would fault you for that. But something tells me it's not that simple for you. It's hard to walk away from somebody whose love you still desperately want.
Victor: So what do you have for me?
Scott: Uh, not much, to be honest.
Victor: What do you mean, not much?
Scott: Well, proven success, LLC, is based in Delaware. But that doesn't mean there's a company there, of course.
Victor: For your information, a lot of companies file their papers in Delaware. That's for tax reasons. What else?
Scott: Right, so all I could find was a post-office box, so I can't confirm whether or not the people who actually sent you that cashier's check are trying to remain anonymous. But either way, they're within their legal rights.
Victor: You're telling me stuff, Scott, that I know. What I'm asking you to find out is what is my daughter Abby's connection to all this.
Scott: Unless you want me to slip a sodium pentothal in your daughter's iced mochaccino, I have no idea.
Victor: I hired you because of your supposed abilities as an investigative journalist. I want results. You got that?
Nick: I, uh, I should have called first, but...
Chelsea: But what?
Nick: Well, I didn't even know if you would have taken the call.
Chelsea: At this point... neither do I.
Nick: Can I come in? I think we should talk.
Chelsea: [Sighs] Okay, um, first, I should probably start by telling you I saw your father earlier.
Nick: What did he want?
Chelsea: No, I went to see him. Not too long ago, he was able to get some really great passports, some really great fake passports, for Adam and me. So I went to ask him if he thought maybe Chloe used the same forgery expert to help her get out of the country.
Nick: How'd that go?
Chelsea: Well, he dropped everything to try to help me, and he put some feelers out there, but unfortunately, it was, in fact, a dead end.
Nick: I'm not surprised. I'm sorry. I wish I had answers for you.
Chelsea: I'm starting to wonder, maybe Chloe -- maybe she was still in the states. Maybe she's closer than any of us think. But I think victor would have found her by now if that was the case.
Nick: Look, my dad has this knack for convincing everyone that his money or sheer will can fix any problem, but it's an act.
Chelsea: But he cares about my feelings, you know? And he listens to me when I tell him I can't rest until I find Adam's killer. He cares, and he actually wants to help me. Nick, I know that's not what you want to hear, but...
Nick: No. No. What I want to hear is whatever you have to tell me. And I'm not upset that you met up with my dad. In fact, I already know. My dad told me.
Chelsea: So you're not here to tell me to leave it to the authorities and just let the whole thing go and tell me to stay away from your father?
Nick: No, no, look, Chelsea, I think you have me all wrong, all right? I am not controlling like my -- I'm just not that guy.
Chelsea: So when why are you here?
Nick: I'm here to prove to you that I will listen. I want you to tell me how you feel about everything. I want to hear it.
Scott: Abby's giving me no reason to be suspicious. But I know how hard it is to prove that someone's not doing something, so I thought these might help support that.
Victor: What's this?
Scott: Research about the surprising frequency of random accounting errors in a fortune 500 company.
Victor: This means nothing to me. And this is not a random fortune 500 company, all right? Our accounting is spotless.
Victor: The fact that a large sum of money came to our company while I was away and my daughter was acting C.E.O. Puzzles me. It raises a red flag. By now, I would think you would have had some information for me that I could use.
Scott: I'll do my best.
Victor: Good. Listen. I cannot emphasize this enough. I smell a rat. I want you to find out what this is all about.
Scott: I'm on it. I'm sorry, I, uh, I didn't see you there. I'm a little preoccupied.
Abby: Well-known side effect after meeting with my dad.
Scott: We're just chatting about my, uh, "greed is good" look. Shocker -- he approves.
Abby: Victor Newman doesn't chat, especially in there. So what were you really talking about?
Scott: You, actually.
Victoria: Okay, I sent Cane to find Hilary and ask her to meet us here. Do you think she or that Howard guy could have altered the footage that we give them?
[Cell phone chimes]
Lily: So why does Victoria want to talk to Hilary?
Cane: I don't know. Maybe, uh, you did such a good job with the first interview, she wants to follow up and do another one.
Lily: Well, that's flattering, although the less time I spend in L.A. With Hilary or anywhere in the world, the better. Everything okay? You seem kind of distracted.
Cane: Yeah, I'm okay. Just, uh, just exhausted. I just want to wrap this up and go home to the kids.
Victoria: So the behind-the-scenes footage that we gave you turned out okay?
Hilary: You saw the segment, right? It was great.
Billy: Did anyone on your team edit the footage that we gave you?
Hilary: Since we had all of 10 minutes prep time, the answer would be no. Why do you ask?
Victoria: Well, ideally we like to give any media outlets that Lily might visit a unique clip package.
Juliet: We were just wondering if there might have been some footage that you hadn't used.
Hilary: I just took what Billy gave me out of his hand, and I gave it right to Howard, my producer. That's what we went on air with. Are you guys sure that we're good? Because it seems like you're fishing for something.
Juliet: I'm actually shocked that we're this coherent. Uh, we have been working around the clock nonstop for the past, what, three days?
Victoria: Yeah, that's true. And we just wanted to say thank you for giving us the segment and for setting it up so quickly.
Hilary: Of course. No, I'm glad that it worked out. Look at this. Genoa city pride in action even in sunny Los Angeles. [Chuckles] Well, if that's everything...
Victoria: Well, that was completely pointless. We're no closer to figuring this out. How did the hockey league get their hands on the footage of their players talking about gambling?
Billy: It was not a serious conversation about personally placing bets, okay? Everything was said was done in a joking manner. It meant nothing.
Victoria: Any mention of players betting on their own sport means something, especially to the league. You may have said it in a joking manner, but this is very serious! How can this be news to you, of all people?! I'm sorry. That was uncalled for. But please help me -- help me get our facts straight. So you said that the league approved this footage? What exactly did they say?
Billy: I'll tell you what they said. I will quote Juliet's side of the conversation. Lenny said that we were good to go, right?
Juliet: Yes, he said, "it looks good to go."
Victoria: All right, but now the league is telling us that they hadn't reviewed all the footage before Hilary's show started streaming live. They had only seen Lily with the players. So how did this miscommunication happen?
Juliet: I don't know. I don't have a transcript of the call. We were all rushing to be ready when Hilary went live.
Victoria: So you never actually got confirmation on that call that they had seen and approved all the footage?
Juliet: I guess not.
Victoria: Well, that's unfortunate. Because without that, we have no defense.
Juliet: Excuse me.
Billy: I would say our defense is the entire conversation in which gambling was brought up in a joking manner. What the league saw on Hilary's show was a fragment taken out of context. So where's the rest of the footage?
Victoria: You're asking me?
Billy: No, no. I'm asking Jesse, the cameraman that Cane hired, that shot the footage, that edited the segment. Why haven't you already called him back?
Jack: I'm sure you heard the part of Dina's interview where she talked about it never being too late to connect with your family. Of course, she was talking about Devon and Katherine.
Nikki: Oh. I thought it went much deeper.
Jack: So did I.
Nikki: Well, that comment obviously resonated with you. If what she said was a message to her children, what do you say about that?
Jack: I say it's so weird that she would say it on a talk show and not tell us face to face. Maybe she's not capable of that. It's the only way she could figure out to reach out to us.
Nikki: Well, what does your gut tell you?
Jack: I want to believe she's in town for something more than just a business deal.
Nikki: Good. That means you haven't closed your heart. I know how hard it is to truly forgive someone, not just give them a second chance, but to truly release all of your resentment and hurt and mean it. But you're the only one who can determine if you're ready to do that.
Jack: I'd forgotten you know something about this. You have forgiven victor his transgressions again and again and again.
Nikki: Well, it doesn't mean that it's always possible. I mean, some people's actions are truly unforgivable. But I don't put Dina in that category.
Jack: You are one of the greatest mothers I have ever known, and you are giving Dina a pass?
Nikki: Not a pass, exactly. But after seeing her interview, I think that she does have some regrets, and if she could go back and make some changes, she would.
Jack: Unfortunately, we don't get that chance. You can't change the past.
Nikki: No, and you can't let it affect your future, either. Now think about it. If you want to have a relationship with your mother, do it, and don't let anybody talk you out of it.
Jack: Ashley is convinced that all this is gonna lead to is more pain.
Nikki: Yes, well, Ashley has her own decisions to make. You make yours. Your mother's not gonna be around forever. And there was so much hurt when you were a young boy. Is that really the only way you want to remember her?
Chelsea: Feels like you're being really supportive right now, and I can't tell you how much that means to me. It's all I've ever wanted from you since Chloe took off.
Nick: I know.
Chelsea: So does this mean you're on my side now?
Nick: Chelsea, I've always been on your side.
Chelsea: No, you were on my side until I told you I would never rest, I couldn't live a normal life until I got justice for Adam. When I told you that, everything started to unravel between us.
Nick: I understand that you need that. Of course you do.
Chelsea: I mean, if we're really on the same page, then you would want justice. You would want Chloe to be found, right?
Nick: Well, I know how important it is to you.
Chelsea: Yes or no, nick?
Nick: It's not just a yes or no, Chelsea.
Chelsea: You have to answer the question, because I can't keep doing this. I don't want to lose what we have, but if you can't support me, then I can't do this anymore. You're either with me or you're not, nick, so...which is it?
Hilary: Barry! Hi! Oh, my goodness. How are you? It's so lovely running into you. I'll have to tell Jack.
Barry: Yeah, how is our mutual friend? He been setting you up with any agents lately to help you manipulate your husband?
Hilary: I hope you're not angry about that.
Barry: Actually, no. Looks like you got what you wanted. And I've heard that you're the sole owner of the show now and the rebranding is going very well.
Hilary: Yeah, it couldn't have been better. And actually the whole experience has been so rewarding that I don't even mind the 15-hour days.
Barry: I'm happy to hear that.
Hilary: You know, I was thinking about you this week. See, I'm here in town trying to hustle up some celebrity segments, and we actually scored an amazing interview with Julie Chen ready to go.
Barry: Wow. Way to go. How'd you swing that?
Hilary: Well, I just walked right up and asked her. It was obvious that she was familiar with my work.
Hilary: I think so. You know, maybe you can help me with this. We built up some really good momentum, and I want to keep it going strong. Maybe we could work together on this?
Barry: Maybe we could.
Barry: You still have my card?
Hilary: Yes, I do.
Barry: Hit me up any time. Oh! I just saw your livestream with Lily Ashby, the model?
Hilary: Oh, you did? That's so sweet.
Barry: Yeah, I notice you did the segment right here. Is she still around somewhere?
Hilary: Uh, yeah. I think she might be up at the rooftop bar.
Barry: I would love to work with her. Could you remind her that she and I spoke at the athletic club back in Genoa city?
Hilary: [Chuckles] Yeah.
Billy: I know all the brass at the hockey league, okay? We can just upload all the behind-the-scenes footage. They will see that we didn't mean to jam them up, that this was a misunderstanding. And then we can fix this. We just need to get the footage. Just get Jesse down here with the footage, okay? Do I need you to remind you of the urgency here?
Cane: What are you gonna find out you don't already know?
Billy: Jesse shot and edited all the behind-the-scenes footage, so he should be able to explain to us what happened!
Cane: So it's obvious then you just want to pin this on him.
Victoria: Okay, Cane, enough. Get Jesse here as fast as you can. Billy's right. We need to talk to him immediately.
Hilary: Lily, you remember Barry Strickler, Jack Abbott's agent friend?
Lily: Yeah, of course. Barry, nice to see you again.
Barry: Pleasure's all mine. Word on the street is your dare commercial's doing dynamite.
Lily: Really? That's amazing given that it hasn't been edited yet.
Barry: Well, good news travels quickly in this town, especially where, uh, new talent is involved.
Lily: Well, I don't know about the talent part.
Barry: Great modeling is a talent. Exhibit A.
Hilary: I'm so happy it hasn't been vandalized by delinquents -- yet.
Barry: Could you give us a minute, please?
Hilary: Yeah, I was, uh, I was just leaving anyway. I have some calls to make. You two have fun.
Lily: Thanks. Bye.
Barry: Thank you. Lily, you are a breath of fresh air, the kind I want to be in business with to mold and turbo-charge your career. I've had plenty of success helping models become actresses and TV hosts. How would you like to be the next one?
Scott: These are financial ledgers for Newman enterprises, accounts receivable and payable, but I guess you already know that.
Abby: I work here and with them every day, so yeah, nice call. You still haven't told me why you were discussing me with my father.
Scott: Oh, that. Right. Um, the topic was Newman finances, and victor was impatient that, uh, to put it mildly, that I was not really up to speed on the big business matters, so I guess it's a little more complicated than I thought.
Abby: Yeah, well, a billion-dollar business is quite complex.
Scott: I get that. So what I need is a crash course in accounting, find out who they pay out to and, just as importantly, how they get paid and by whom and for what.
Abby: Well, I guess anything that you could learn about business would be very helpful.
Scott: But to get up to pace, I'm gonna need someone who's gonna be a tutor and a tour guide for me.
Abby: Me? No, people go to business school for years to learn that stuff. You want me to teach it to you in one day?
Scott: You know, I forget. What -- what school did you go to? Was it -- was it Harvard or Stanford? Or maybe it was -- you know what? I think it was the university of my daddy just handed me this job.
Abby: [Chuckles] You're on your own, 'cause I'm busy. Unlike you, I have things to do around here.
Scott: Look, my bad. I only brought it up because I mentioned it to victor, and he sparked to the idea.
Victor: Yes, my darling.
Abby: Scott just told me you want me to tutor him?
Abby: On the enormous subject of business finance?
Victor: Can you think of a better person? Look how quickly you learned things around here. Everything in a short period of time. You make him your priority. I've got plans for him, okay?
Victor: Bye, Scott.
Scott: Take care. Look, I'm sure this would be easy for you to assume that I've just coasted through life on my charm and remarkable looks. But my brain is above average just slightly, so I won't let you down.
Chelsea: You can't even look at me. So I guess that's your answer. Uh, I-I don't know, nick. Then maybe you should go.
Nick: No. Uh, listen, just... go find Chloe. Do whatever it takes to find her. You need this.
Chelsea: Are you sure?
Nick: I am. But you know what this has done to my family. You know the pain that this has caused me and... just know I can't do it with you. But I want you to keep looking, all right? Do whatever it takes. I'm not gonna try and stop you. I'm not gonna hold you back. Do this. You need this closure. And I want it, too. For us.
Phyllis: Whoo. [Sighs] Still no response. That's awesome, Billy. You know what? I am done with this. I am d-o-n-E. [Sighs]
Victoria: Oh, thank you for getting here so quickly, Jesse.
Jesse: Yeah, sure. I, uh, hope you're all happy with what I shot.
Victoria: Well, it's not about the quality. We're having an internal issue, and we just need to view everything that you've taped.
Billy: Before you sent the footage to us, did you edit it?
Victoria: In any way?
Jesse: You said it was a rush, so I just cut some dead air between clips. That's all.
Cane: Okay, so he's answered your questions, and I think trying to find a couple of seconds of footage amongst hours is gonna be a waste of time.
Billy: It's not a waste of time. It's only gonna take a second. I know the exact moment.
Victoria: Did you bring the footage?
Jesse: Yeah, it's all right here on this tablet.
Billy: Open that up so we can watch the whole thing. I'll tell you exactly what I'm talking about, the moment that didn't air.
Jesse: So, that's the end of it. That's everything I shot.
Victoria: Okay. Great. So there's nothing that makes it clear that the betting conversation was a joke.
Billy: 'Cause the tape stopped in the middle of the conversation. We all saw that, right? Why'd you do that, Jesse?
Jesse: I'm sorry, man. I guess I must have stopped rolling. Maybe I was changing the memory card.
Billy: Did you hear our conversation? You know that we weren't being serious, right?
Jesse: I wasn't really listening.
Billy: Come on!
Victoria: Okay, look, look, we're done. We're done. It's okay. Thank you. Thank you so much.
Jesse: Thank you.
Cane: All right, well, it looks like we wasted our time looking for footage that doesn't exist.
Billy: Wasted? No, Cane. It's not wasted, 'cause the league needs to know the real story, exactly what happened here.
Cane: I know the real story, Billy, okay? You're a recovering gambling addict, and you engaged yourself in a conversation with professional hockey players about betting on their own game, okay? And as a result, you've trashed the campaign. That's the real story.
Barry: These are just some of my former model clients -- thank you very much -- that have gone on to do all sorts of amazing things in the industry.
Lily: Wow. That's, uh, that's really interesting. Um, but, you know, I have an exclusive contract with brash & sassy.
Barry: For modeling. But I doubt that prevents you from taking other kinds of jobs.
Lily: No, but they do keep me pretty busy.
Barry: I'm sure they do, but one day their marketing strategy will change, and then you'll be out. That happens.
Lily: You know, my family's also in Genoa city. I really can't just move to L.A.
Barry: There's plenty going on in Chicago. And relocation is not always necessary. We make it work if the demand is there, and I think it definitely will be.
Lily: Thank you. That's really sweet. Uh, my husband and I, we make all our decisions together.
Barry: I wouldn't have it any other way. The last thing I want to do is pressure you.
Lily: Well, I do have to say this is pretty exciting.
Barry: It is. And I would like to work with you to keep it that way.
Lily: Okay. Well, I, um, I'll definitely talk to Cane about it.
Lily: [Chuckles] Cheers.
Barry: Thank you.
[Knock on door]
Abby: Hi. You busy?
Jack: Never too busy for my favorite niece.
Abby: Not that there's anything suspicious about me visiting my favorite uncle.
Jack: And business partner.
Abby: Oh, yes. And on that note, I found our first tech startup for our incubator.
Jack: Ooh. Do tell.
Abby: It's this guy named Zack. He has this very innovative new dating app.
Jack: Well, fortunately, I am too old for online dating, so if you think this is a winner, I'm sold.
Abby: Wow. [Laughs]
Abby: You have no idea how good it feels to be trusted for a change.
Chelsea: Hey, um, I'm really glad that we were able to sort things out.
Nick: Me, too. And I'm sorry things didn't work out with my dad and that passport.
Chelsea: It was a long shot. Oh, but it did actually lead me in another direction. I bumped into Scott Grainger, and he suggested why don't I go back a bit, focus on the time that Chloe spent in the mental hospital. Think about it. I mean, she must have had help getting an early release, and it's like she has this whole other life, this whole other thing that she did in California. Nobody knows anything about it.
Nick: Yeah, I think that's solid. That could lead to everything.
Chelsea: Good. I'm really glad you feel that way.
Nick: Listen, um... I think we should keep this between us. You know, we don't want to let Chloe or whoever she's working with ever see you coming.
Nikki: So you saw Chelsea, and then you asked our son to spy on his girlfriend for you? This could be a new low even for you.
Victor: If Chelsea ends up on Chloe's trail, that could be disastrous for us. I need you and Nicholas to keep me informed. You understand that?
Nikki: After everything that's happened, you're still ordering us around?
Victor: That's how you want it, isn't it?
Nikki: Victor, I never wanted this.
Jack: So why would Scott Grainger need a crash course in Newman finances?
Abby: Dad says he wants him to learn how the company earns and spends money.
Jack: Do you believe that?
Abby: [Sighs] I-I just got this paranoid flash, like Scott was digging for answers about that warehouse check from your LLC.
Jack: Don't worry about that. There's no way Scott or anyone else could trace that company back to me.
Abby: [Sighs] Yeah, it's probably just my conscience getting the better of me, but...
Jack: Did your father believe you when you said you knew nothing about this mystery payment?
Abby: He has no reason to doubt me.
Jack: You're sure you can handle Scott?
Abby: Despite Scott being a royal pain in the rear, he's no match for me. I know how to deal with him.
Victor: There's still feelings between us. I can see it in your eyes.
Nikki: Don't push me.
Victor: We were just talking about you, son.
Nick: Hey, mom.
Nikki: Hi, darling. Your father just told me what he asked you to do.
Nick: Yep. Just here to report in.
Nikki: Well, how do you feel about this, spying on Chelsea?
Nick: Well, obviously I don't like it, but I'm caught in a trap, aren't I?
Victor: What's Chelsea's next move?
Nick: She doesn't have one. She's not gonna pursue this any further.
Chelsea: I need a flight from Genoa city to san Francisco. Tonight.
Billy: What if I take a lie-detector test, okay? I'm sure the players will do the same thing. I'm sure they're anxious to prove that they didn't actually bet on their own games.
Cane: Well, unfortunately, the sports blogs are already picking up the footage of Hilary's stream, and they're wondering if now the championship's compromised.
Billy: Cane, you're not helping, okay? We're actually looking for solutions here.
Cane: All right, trying to fix your mess, your colossal mistake, Billy.
Victoria: I need to take some responsibility for this, too.
Billy: No, Vick, you didn't do --
Victoria: Doing Hilary's show was my idea. We had to rush to get it done. But it doesn't matter who's at fault, okay? We have to fix this.
Billy: No, listen, I'm the one with the relationship with the hockey officials in Toronto. I'll go there as soon as possible. I can still fix this. I'm gonna leave right now, okay? I'm gonna go pack.
Cane: Okay, all right, listen to me. He has no credibility. His gambling issues almost cost us the endorsement deal. Do you remember that? You need to be the one that goes.
Victoria: Maybe Billy and I should go together.
Cane: All right, listen, if you really want to salvage this commercial and this deal and all the money we've spent, you need to go alone.
Phyllis: There you are. Where have you been? I sure hope celebrating that great segment on Hilary's show.
Billy: The hockey league didn't think it was so great. Now I'm on my way to Toronto to try and fix things.
Phyllis: Toronto? What's the problem?
Billy: I'm the problem. I made a stupid joke about gambling on games, and now we're in jeopardy of losing the commercial, the endorsement, everything.
[Knock on door]
Victoria: Billy, open up. It's me.
Hilary: Hey. Hey, hey. Honey. What happened to you?
Juliet: Uh, things are just kind of a mess.
Hilary: Does this have anything to do with the footage that you gave me to run?
Juliet: The hockey league is freaking out. And it was my job to get full approval for anything aired.
Hilary: Oh, sweetie, I'm so sorry. Well, can it be fixed?
Juliet: I hope so. It was a ridiculous misunderstanding.
Lily: Hey, Juliet. Everything okay?
Juliet: Yeah, yeah. Just work stuff.
Lily: Oh, well, have you seen Cane? We haven't had a chance to celebrate how great things went.
Jesse: You got my text.
Cane: Okay, I don't know what you want, 'cause you and I are done, aren't we?
Jesse: Are we? Huh. 'Cause all I know is you told me to delete 10 seconds of footage, like, permanently delete. Next thing I know, there's some kind of major emergency.
Cane: That's 'cause nothing about making bets was meant to air. And you heard what my boss said. You're off the hook. And Billy Abbott is now in the hot seat.
Jesse: Well, from what I heard, looks like you could join him very easily. You know, what you had me do could really mess you up.
Cane: [Chuckles] This is a shakedown? Is that what this is?
Jesse: Well, I know it'd be worth a lot to Billy if I came forward with what I know. How much is it worth to you for me to disappear like that footage?
Cane: Would this be enough?
Jesse: Give me it. Oh, yeah. [Chuckles] And then some. Pleasure doing business with you. Thanks, man.
Billy: So I'm not going to Toronto?
Victoria: I'm the C.E.O. I'll be the one to handle this. I already called Hannah and told her that we're canceling the trip to san Diego with the kids. Just go back to Genoa city, and I'll do my best to put out the fire with the hockey league.
Billy: What made you decide to handle it this way?
Victoria: As C.E.O., this falls on me. I should be the one to fix things, not you, Billy.
Billy: And you don't think the league would trust a recovering gambling addict to handle it.
Victoria: You're a big-time, huge hockey fan hanging out with a bunch of players. You could have joked about anything, but you allowed yourself to have a conversation about betting. Now, maybe you didn't think it was serious, but it showed an incredible lack of judgment. I don't know if I can undo this damage, Billy, but this is my business, and I have to try. So I'll see you back at the office. Oh, one more thing. You can come out now, Phyllis! I'm assuming that you've been in L.A. this entire time.
Phyllis: It was my idea to surprise Billy, yes.
Victoria: Well, you should wear less perfume. I could smell it the moment I walked in the room.
Phyllis: Look, I didn't want to make things any worse for Billy than they already are.
Victoria: Well, that would be pretty much impossible, wouldn't it?
Next on "The Young and the Restless"...
Nikki: He had a really bad breakup.
Tessa: You don't want me seeing Noah again. It's fine. Just say that.
Scott: You wanted to see me?
Victor: I have another special project for you.
Chelsea: Thank you for meeting with me. I'm very concerned about my sister, Chloe.
