Episode # 11178 ~ Nikki's charade shows its cracks; Hilary plots the ultimate revenge; Jack rattles Phyllis with a prediction about Billy.

Provided By Suzanne

Cane: Okay. Did Victoria call from Toronto?

Juliet: That's not why I texted you.

Cane: Okay, well, what's going on?

Juliet: Nothing to do with brash & sassy!

Cane: Okay, look, I'm about to sit down and have dinner with my family for the first time since I get back from L.A., And you text me and you say it's an emergency, so what is it?

Juliet: I think this qualifies. Hilary knows about our one-night stand.

Hilary: How long has the affair been going on?

Juliet: It's not an affair. Cane and I had sex one time.

Devon: ...Funny. Great things can happen.

Mariah: Hey! I didn't think you'd still be here.

Hilary: Uh, I guess I just got inspired.

Devon: That sounds like it's major.

Mariah: Is that it? Tomorrow's big story?

Jack: Oh! You're still here. I thought you'd left with Billy.

Phyllis: No, no. Changes of plans. Actually, Victoria is, uh, in Toronto ironing out the whole hockey deal, and Billy's gonna spend the night at her house, take care of the kids.

Jack: Oh, good, that's just what Billy needs, an evening with Johnny and Katie. Little kids are so non-judgmental.

Phyllis: Maybe uncle jack could teach them the fine art of holding a grudge.

Jack: Oh, come on, even you have to admit, little brother stepped in it this time.

Phyllis: As much as you love squeezing joy from other people's troubles, don't celebrate Billy's demise just yet.

Billy: Hey. Take it easy! I just put your sister and your brother to sleep.

Reed: I'm sorry. Um, where's Hannah?

Billy: She's got the night off.

Reed: All right. Are you staying here?

Billy: Yeah. Looks that way.

Reed: Cool. Um, hey. Everything good between you and mom?

Billy: Well, it's a little complicated.

Reed: Mm-hmm. I know that what that translates to. You two hooked up in Cali, and now you're a thing again. Finally.

Tessa: Hey!

Nikki: Oh, my gosh, that was so fast!

Tessa: Well, my so-called office skills might be shady, but when it comes to music, I don't mess around.

Nikki: Oh, my goodness! You got it all?

Tessa: Yep. Everything on the list! That music store next to crimson lights has got, like, a vault of this stuff.

Nikki: Oh, this is amazing. Thank you so much. I really want to figure out what I'm playing as soon as possible.

Tessa: And rehearse the hell out of them?

Nikki: Tell me about it. And, listen, I'm really gonna need your input. I want you to tell me exactly what you think. Don't hold back.

Tessa: All right. Being dead honest? You're always smiling and claiming you're fine, but for a shiny, happy person, you just had me put together about the saddest mixtape in musical history.

Jack: I must say, your unshakable faith in Billy would almost be inspirational were he not a world-class screw-up and were you not as smart as I know you can be.

Phyllis: This conversation is beyond distasteful.

Jack: Can I ask you just one question? Do you really think Billy wasn't tempted to bet on the hockey finals?

Phyllis: Absolutely. Should he have been joking about it? No. But that's all it was. Can I ask you a question?

Jack: Sure. Shoot.

Phyllis: I know that you'd rather shove an arm in your high-speed document shredder before you ever forgive your brother, but could you maybe not kick him when he's down? At least in front of me.

Jack: Fair enough. I do wonder, though...

Phyllis: What are you wondering, jack?

Jack: Will you be this defensive when he loses his job and he's just hanging out all day?

Phyllis: How about that "kickin' him when he's down" thing? Did you not just hear me?

Jack: Sorry, I can't help myself. I just hate to see you forced to pull a Victoria.

Phyllis: Meaning?

Jack: The day that will come when you'll have to do what she does -- face reality and kick him to the curb where he belongs. It's awkward, it's uncomfortable, but it's inevitable. Good night, Phyllis.

Billy: We had some unexpected issues with the pro hockey league while we were in L.A., So your mother's in Toronto trying to smooth everything over. I'm gonna stay the night to watch over Johnny and Katie.

Reed: So you guys are not getting back together?

Billy: No, we're not, reed. It's not gonna happen.

Reed: And it's none of my business, right?

Billy: No, it is your business. I mean, that's your mother, and we're cool, right? And that's your brother and sister up there?

Reed: I guess.

Billy: Good. So, why don't you tell me why you slammed in here like a wrecking ball of teenage angst?

Reed: It's not even worth talking about.

Billy: Oh, man, come on. When I used to let it build up inside of me like that, it always had something to do with a girl. Am I on the right track?

Reed: Yeah, pretty much. Exactly.

Billy: What's her name?

Reed: Zoey.

Billy: Zoey? What'd she do?

Reed: I went to the coffeehouse and caught her lip-locking with the cockiest piece of jock-scum I ever laid eyes on.

Lily: Hi.

Charlie: Hey.

Lily: Charlie, come on. No equipment by the front door. Someone's gonna trip over it.

Charlie: "Someone's gonna trip over it."

Lily: [Sighs] Okay, don't mock me. I'm a cool mom, according to your sister.

Charlie: Well, mom, consider the source.

Mattie: Hey! I heard that!

Charlie: Her hearing's fine, but it's, uh -- it's a shame about the rest. She's really anti-coordinated.

Mattie: [Laughs] The word is uncoordinated. Stop playing lacrosse without a helmet. You need to salvage what's left of your brain.

Lily: Okay, you guys, I really missed you and so did dad, but he had a very rough day at work, all right? And he had to go back to the office, so please, just dial it down.

Cane: Why would you talk to Hilary Curtis about what happened in Tokyo? She despises lily and has been looking for years for something to use against her, and you dropped this in her lap!

Juliet: No! I've always been clear about this. I never wanted anyone to find out.

Cane: Then how did she know?

Juliet: She was creeping around here, claimed to be looking for Billy, but she was clearly eavesdropping. She heard us talking earlier. Both of us. Equally guilty.

Cane: Where is she? Where is she? Where is she?

Juliet: Relax. I took care of it. Calm down!

Cane: Don't tell me to relax! My marriage is on the line! Wait, wait, stop for a sec. What do you mean you took care of it?

Juliet: I went and met with Hilary.

Cane: Oh!

Juliet: She told me what she knew, insisted she was being a good friend, reminding me and warning me to be careful so no one else would find out.

Cane: And you actually believed this?

Juliet: Not for a second. Whatever vague threat she was trying to deliver, I shut it down. I reminded her she had no proof, and it would be the word of two respected executives against her, a professional gossip and known liar.

Hilary: You know, all right, you got me. I still haven't chosen an opener for tomorrow's show. Maybe I'll sleep on it. So, what are you two doing back here? Did you forget something?

Mariah: Yeah, a copy of the L.A. Interview with lily. I didn't have a chance to do it earlier, but it shouldn't take me long.

Devon: I guess I should say congratulations to you.

Hilary: For?

Devon: Well, Mariah said that you made a big splash in Hollywood, you went and got yourself an exclusive with Julie Chen, right?

Hilary: Oh, yeah. I'm pretty proud of my little exclusive.

Devon: There's nothing little about that.

Hilary: Well, I owe you big props. Mergeron enterprises? Talk about a big splash.

Devon: Oh, yeah, that's just beginner's luck, that's all.

Hilary: With the grande dame of euro-moguls, Dina Mergeron? I doubt that. Wish I could have been here for the interview, but... well, Mariah, she -- well, let's just say she didn't embarrass the show.

Devon: You almost did it. You almost were able to give an unsolicited compliment to your very hard-working sidekick, as you like to call her.

Hilary: Well, it looks like we all had a productive week.

Devon: Yeah. You ready to go?

Mariah: Yeah.

Hilary: Fancy dinner plans?

Mariah: Something like that, but we need to drop this off at lily's first.

Devon: Okay.

Hilary: You know, I could -- I'm actually heading to the club, and cane and lily's place is on the way, so I could drop it off for you.

Mariah: Really? You would do that?

Hilary: Yeah. You know, lily and I, if we're gonna be GC co-divas, then we need to start getting along. Otherwise, it just looks bad for all women, don't you think?

Mariah: You really need to stop reading my mind like that.

Devon: Well, thanks, Hilary.

Mariah: Yeah. All right.

Hilary: Yeah, no problem.

Mariah: See you tomorrow.

Hilary: Okay.

Noah: Look at this place! Fan-favorite local TV co-host and, uh, big-business baller, huh? If Hilary has a tip line, I need to get that number.

Mariah: Hello. No, we came here to escape from the paparazzi.

Noah: Great to see you, Devon. How you doing?

Devon: It's good to see you, too, man. I've been keen to check out another open mic night.

Noah: Yeah.

[Cell phone rings]

Devon: Sorry, guys. This is Mergeron. I'll try to keep it short.

Mariah: You better. This lady does not wait.

Noah: Mnh-mnh. Boyfriend's starting to out-Newman the Newmans, and I mean that as a compliment.

Mariah: Mm, I'm not sure he'd take it as one. But from I gather, Devon and I aren't the only new power couple in town... how's Tessa? Oh, please tell me you didn't mess it with her. She's like the coolest chick I know. She is, and it's not me.

Mariah: What is it, then?

Noah: Look, you guys came here to have a good time, not to listen to me whine.

Mariah: Talk to me.

Noah: All right, look, I don't know that it's my place to say anything, but... I'm a little worried about her. She mentioned wanting to leave town, she was tense about the whole thing.

Mariah: Is she in some kind of trouble?

Noah: Well, that's what I'm afraid of.

Tessa: Look, I know you're a really strong woman and it's pointless for me to try to figure out what's bringing you down and that it's none of my business to get involved in your personal space...

Nikki: Tessa, I'm okay. I promise. The most important thing we have to worry about is actually the performance. I mean, I certainly don't want to launch a neurological center with a clinical depression suite in a minor.

Tessa: I get what you're going for. I mean, sometimes you need to take that beautiful misery and wallow in it. But there is a crowd to consider, and you don't want them to be too shattered to shell out donations.

Nikki: Wow. I have trained you well. Go on, I'm listening.

Tessa: Well, a great anthem is like a tattoo. You design it -- the shape, the color, the message. A totally personal experience. But then people around the world can understand it and appreciate it for different reasons. Music and art are their own language. You know what, actually, I need to contradict myself on that one because they have to be different languages because not all art is music, and not all music is art. Open mic night at the underground is proof of that. [Laughs] Last week, Noah's sign-up sheet was just... oh. Oh, god. Uh, what time is it? Do you know?

Nikki: Oh, it's, uh... oh, you have 20 minutes to get there, you're fine.

Tessa: Oh, okay.

Nikki: Um, I hear what you're saying about my music choices. What I need to do is inspire hope.

Tessa: Unless they're hoping for agony's greatest hits... then I should have just kept my trap shut.

[Both laugh]

Jack: Evening, ladies.

Nikki: Well, hi! Tessa, this is my very dear friend, jack Abbott. Jack, this is Tessa, my new friend and assistant and musical director.

Jack: Tessa, I delight to meet you. Nikki has been singing your praises for some time now.

Tessa: Yeah, well, nice to meet you, too. Unfortunately, I got to run, so bye.

Nikki: Thanks!

Jack: Dear god, what did you tell her about me?

Nikki: Not the truth. Don't worry. It's nothing personal. She just had to meet Noah at the underground. Please have a seat.

Jack: Oh, I'm sure victor would just love that.

Nikki: Well, victor's not coming.

Jack: Well, why didn't you say so? Oh, waiter!

Reed: And now, get this -- Zoey totally throws me under the bus in front of all of crimson lights, saying that I've been ignoring her because I'm too into music.

Billy: Well, first of all, that's a cop-out, but I got a question for you. How did you end up at crimson lights at the exact time that Zoey was...

Reed: ...Sucking face with Charlie the human jockstrap?

Billy: Okay.

Reed: Kendall texted me to come to the coffeehouse.

Billy: Kendall? Isn't that Zoey's BFF?

Reed: Ex-BFF now. And isn't so super-sketch that my so-called friend Kendall would set up such an embarrassing nightmare like that for me to walk into?

Billy: Super-sketch, man. That's triple S. Super self-serving.

Reed: Totally.

Billy: Look, dude, that sucks, okay? I feel for you, but, look, at least it's done before it got too serious. At least there's that.

Reed: [Sighs] I guess so. It just makes me so sick that Zoey would choose that obnoxious moron from walnut grove over me. I mean, seriously -- lacrosse?

Billy: You're an artist, man. You got to rise above, bro.

Reed: I'll try.

Billy: Good man.

Reed: All right, I'm gonna go upstairs and practice a little bit.

Billy: Headphones, please.

Reed: Okay. Good night.

Billy: Good night.

[Knocks on door]

Billy: Hey.

Phyllis: Hi.

Billy: What are you doing here?

Phyllis: I'm Phyllis. We're seeing each other, remember? Can I come in?

Billy: Uh, yeah. I just, um... I just put the kids down.

Phyllis: Yeah, I figured they were sleeping.

Billy: Yeah, I don't want this to be weird, of course, but, um...

Phyllis: I didn't like the way we left things tonight.

Billy: How is that?

Phyllis: Similar to now, kind of just...tense and awkward.

Billy: That's not how I saw it.

Phyllis: You didn't tell me whether or not you were angry that I told jack about the commercial. And if so, were you slightly irritated or massively resentful? I... I just didn't want to spend the rest of the night guessing what those answers might be.

Billy: Can we talk about this tomorrow? It's not a big deal.

Phyllis: It's not okay if we're not okay. What's going on with you?

Juliet: Look, cane, I didn't ask you here to give you a panic attack, okay? Hilary's too smart to go public with this. She's all about journalistic credibility. Plus, do you really think she'd risk a slander lawsuit? Her only asset is the show, and with nothing to back up this scandal she invented, you and lily could end up owning it.

Cane: Okay. All right. All right. You're right. This will ruin her credibility as a lifestyle brand. Okay.

Juliet: Quickly and permanently. So don't let her taunt you. She has no proof and everything to lose.

Cane: All right, all right. Logically, she has no proof, okay? And the stakes are too high for her to mess with us. All right. Okay. All right. Okay.

Juliet: There! There, you said it yourself.

Cane: Okay.

Juliet: Trust me, I dealt with Hilary. I made it very clear. We are not indulging her. Period.

Lily: You know what, when I hear other mothers complain about how they have to repeat themselves four or five times before anyone lifts a finger, I think, "not my Charlie, no. No more than three times. No more, no less."

Charlie: Did you brag about me in L.A.?

Lily: You want me to brag about you? Of course I brag about you.

Charlie: How'd it go out there?

Lily: Um, dad and I will tell you all about it, but please set the table for dinner.

[Cell phone rings]

Charlie: Hello?

[Doorbell rings]

Lily: Don't worry, I'll get it. I will get it. [Sighs] Well, this is... different.

Hilary: Well, I came here to drop off the video of our L.A. interview that you requested. Mariah put it on this flash drive, but she had dinner plans with Devon.

Lily: So you came to do something nice for two of your least favorite people?

Hilary: Well, I was glad to. See, I feel a certain sense of, uh, responsibility.

Lily: So, exactly what is it you feel responsible for?

Hilary: Well, that whole hockey endorsement debacle that went down on my show. Now, if brash & sassy! -- If they lose the deal, this might be all that you have left to remember your fleeting moment in the spotlight.

Lily: Thank you. Barry might disagree, though. You know he's my new agent, right?

Hilary: You know, I really wonder if things would have went down differently if cane just devoted a little more of himself to the commercial.

Lily: Excuse me?

Hilary: Well, didn't he take a much more hands-on approach in Tokyo? Just rolled up his sleeves and plunged right in there?

Lily: I wasn't in Tokyo.

Hilary: Oh, yes. That's right.

Lily: Well, cane gives his all in everything he does, so whatever mix-up happened in L.A., I can assure you he had nothing to do with it.

Hilary: Well, who's the guilty culprit, then?

Lily: You know, you're probably used to hearing this by now -- "no comment." Thank you. Good to see you.

Hilary: You know, another little tip, lily. Make sure you screen that before you send it out. If there's one thing that we learned in Hollywood, it is always double-check the video.

Lily: Yeah, great. Thanks. God...

[Kitchen timer goes off]

Mariah: So, this guy that Tessa ran into at the coffeehouse -- you have no idea what their relationship was or how long it's been?

Noah: No, but obviously fresh enough to freak her out, so much so that she's planning to bolt out of town. I just wish I knew why, you know? She seems like a pretty tough chick.

Mariah: Very tough, very pretty, and I'm guessing someone you're not ready to say goodbye to yet.

Noah: Hey!

Tessa: Oh! Hi!

Noah: You're back!

Tessa: Yeah! Hi.

Noah: Hi. Um, you know what, actually, I actually wanted to pick Devon's brain about his recent business acquisition, so... you guys should hang out, though. I'll take this for you.

Tessa: Yeah! Yeah, well, thanks.

Noah: Okay.

Tessa: All right. Yeah. Mariah!

Mariah: Hi! How you doing?

Tessa: Good, how are you? I'm glad you came. Yeah. Uh, so, uh, I guess Noah told you that he's probably a little pissed at me.

Mariah: The opposite, actually. He cares about you, a lot, which is why he told me about your situation.

Tessa: Oh, um... no offense. I mean, you're cool, but Noah shouldn't be spilling my private business to anyone.

Mariah: I get it, but he's worried about you. And truth be told, he only knows what you've told him -- or haven't told him. And by the way, I get it. I keep a very tight lid on my messed-up past. But, look, Noah and I have similar instincts about people. He holds you in high regard, and he trusts you, so I trust you, too.

Tessa: And, uh, that's not something I take for granted. Believe me. Just... giving it back is not necessarily on the "special skills" column of my résumé.

Mariah: Oh, no. I understand. I know all too well how it feels to trust somebody, get to know them, and have a friend stab you in the back and then roast a few people in a towering inferno. But that's just my past life with a thrill-kill cult.

Tessa: A cult?

Mariah: Mm-hmm.

Tessa: Like an actual cult?

Mariah: Yeah, like an actual cult.

Tessa: I've never met anyone in one of those before.

Mariah: Yeah.

Tessa: Wow.

Mariah: I still can't believe my part has a happy ending, actually, or new chapter or sequel -- whatever this is for me. But I think if you trust the right people, your friends who really care about you, then you could have a happy one, too.

Jack: A concert. Well, I guess we can officially declare that your lost mojo has been found. What else would give you the nerve to take on something like this?

Nikki: Actually, uh, this is more of a command performance.

Jack: Oh, who do we know that gives out commandments? You know what, when you see victor, please tell him I think this is fantastic. Smartest move he's ever made. It'll bring you nothing but joy.

Nikki: Tell that to my nerves, will you? I'm a wreck.

Jack: Yeah, yeah, yeah. That's natural. This is good for your heart and a chance for you to shine, and for a good cause!

Nikki: I wish victor's motives were as pure as your enthusiasm.

Jack: Why wouldn't they be?

Nikki: Oh, I don't know. He's probably hoping that I'll embarrass myself. It'll force him to swoop to my rescue.

Jack: Okay, this is a little worrisome. What has victor done now to make you talk like that?

Lily: [Clears throat]

Mattie: Just shut the door when you leave my room!

Charlie: I do shut the --

Lily: Hey, you guys! You guys! Dinner's ready, and dad's gonna be home soon. The table's not gonna set itself. Thank you. Hey.

Cane: Hey.

Mattie: Hi, dad.

Cane: Hey, sweetheart.

Charlie: What's up, dad?

Cane: Long day, and I'm just glad to be home with my favorite people.

Lily: So, um, what was Juliet's emergency?

Cane: Oh, she has this strategy to try and save the hockey deal, but I told her that she has to pitch Victoria first.

Lily: Well, if that's even an option.

Cane: You know what? I don't want to talk about work. I don't, all right? I'm home. I want to relax and just be with my family. Come here.

Lily: Yeah, okay. Yeah.

Billy: You have been nothing but amazing through this whole nightmare. It's been me, okay? I'm the one that has not been easy to be around. That is my fault. I take the blame.

Phyllis: You telling me we're okay?

Billy: We're good. Yes. Look, I have certain responsibilities that are not gonna go away, like tonight. But I don't want to lose you. So we have to navigate these kind of things together, okay?

Phyllis: Part of the deal. I knew it going in. It doesn't bother me.

Billy: Then we're good.

Phyllis: Yeah. We're really good. I really love that you are such a dedicated dad. I really do. You just need to help me with these fantasies I'm having of being on a deserted island. You know, they're happening pretty frequently.

Billy: Oh, wow. Really?

Phyllis: Yeah.

Billy: Yeah, because I have very similar sexy daydreams myself.

Phyllis: Oh, really? Well, it doesn't even have to be a deserted island. It could be a hotel and spa, you know, on a total private island chain. That's good. That'd be really good.

Billy: You know, with that revision, we can very quickly go from fantasy to reality...

Phyllis: [Laughs] Really?

Billy: Yes. Good night.

Phyllis: It is now.

Tessa: How about this? I won't just bail without warning. On any of you.

Mariah: Good. And certainly not before you come over to my mom's place so we can have an all-night high-def terror-palooza of outrageous drive-in horror hits and pizza!

Tessa: Yes! You're on.

Mariah: Yes!

Tessa: Yeah.

[Both laugh]

Noah: Hey, guys, I'm gonna kick off the show. Um, you need to go first 'cause we got Freddie flamenco lurking around here, and he's way better when the crowd is, like, way more drunk.

Tessa: All right. Cool.

Noah: Thank you. How'd it go? Did you get through to her, or...?

Mariah: Okay? I'm not really sure exactly.

Noah: Yeah.

Tessa: Hey, hey, undergrounders.

[Cheers and applause]

Tessa: Hi. How are we all doing? Good? Great, well, um, I'm Tessa. I was going to sing a song about goodbyes, but I'm in the mood for something a little different, or a lot different. So, all right.

Mattie: But when can we see the commercial?

Lily: Um, not for a while. It still has to be edited. Right?

Cane: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. We're working on it, but you will see it eventually, yeah.

Lily: Yeah, way more than they would like to.

Cane: Yeah, see, that's called charming modesty, 'cause your mother was a rock star in los Angeles.

Mattie: Aww!

Charlie: Good job, mom.

Lily: [Laughs] Thanks, guys.

Cane: And...voilà!

Lily: [Gasps] What? What is this?

Cane: It's a little something for the whole family, but you, my love, can have the honors of opening it. Open it up, have a look.

Lily: Thank you. Let's see. [Gasps] Oh, my gosh! Look!

Cane: See it?

Charlie: No way! That's real?

Cane: Yeah, it's real. It was right across from the hotel. It was smack-dab in the middle of Hollywood.

Lily: Oh, honey, thank you. It's so thoughtful.

Mattie: Mom, you look so beautiful. But you're not gonna get too famous, right?

Lily: [Laughs] I'm gonna try not to. I really am.

Mattie: I just don't want us hounded by paparazzi.

Lily: No, no, no. We're not there yet.

Cane: So, how was practice?

Charlie: Man, the uzhe! I killed it! Coach says if I keep it up like this, next season I'll be varsity caption.

Cane: Mate, I am proud of you. Now, get your feet off the furniture.

Mattie: All you have to do is keep up that c-minus GPA.

Charlie: Not a problem! I only have one D. B. I said B. Only one, but you know, I'm hoping for more.

Mattie: Don't count on it, dad.

Cane: All right, so... what else is going on?

Charlie: Just some drama after classes at crimson lights. I almost had to kick some indie-rock punk's butt.

Lily: Whoa, whoa.

Cane: You were fighting?

Charlie: No! All right. I have this new hottie friend at GC high, and, uh, it turns out she has a boyfriend that she forgot to dump, and he showed up.

Lily: The punk-rocker?

Charlie: Yeah, some emo artsy poser boy. A real nothing-burger, dad.

Billy: See you tomorrow.

Phyllis: Oh, yes, you will. See you, cutie.

Reed: So, what was that, "cutie?"

Billy: I take it your mother didn't give you an update on my relationship status?

Reed: No, she didn't. But I'm all caught up now. What's going on?

Billy: Well, reed, I'm a single adult, so is Phyllis, and we're dating, okay?

Reed: No! That's not okay. I thought you liked my mom. You -- you do like my mom.

Billy: I do like your mother. I love your mother. But as friends. And I'm not sure why we need to explain this. You know we're divorced, right?

Reed: I just didn't know you had a side hook-up.

Billy: A side what, reed? Come on. Phyllis and I are dating, okay? To be honest, your mother should have told you that.

Reed: Well, she didn't. And I just can't believe that you'd do that to her.

Nikki: I made a flip comment about victor. You do it all the time. No need to leap to my defense.

Jack: Okay, here's the problem. It's me you're talking to. I know you. Something is bothering you. Something big. And you've been trying to step away from it several times now.

Nikki: Jack, this is really silly. I don't even know what to say.

Jack: Say what's on your mind. Hey, look, you're here, again, flying solo, taking on these projects. You're obviously trying to avoid something or someone. I care about you. I wish you'd level with me.

Nikki: All right, I'll tell you.

Nikki: The truth is, victor and I are having some marital issues, but we're not ending the marriage. So please don't throw me a divorce party live on "the Hilary show." I don't want anybody to know about this. It's just something we need to move through.

Jack: No one's gonna hear anything from me. As much as I loathe victor, I love you that much more.

Nikki: Well, that's a whole lot of love there.

Jack: No, I mean it, if there is anything I can do to help...

Nikki: No, I know. Thank you. There really isn't anything anybody can do. My family, my charity causes, and my health -- those are the things I am focusing on.

Jack: I think of you as family. In fact, right now, I'd trade you for some of my genetic family.

Nikki: Oh, my god. You saw Dina again, didn't you?

Give me something to hold onto give me give me something, something

[Cheers and applause]

Mariah: Yeah! Whoo!

Noah: So good. So good.

Tessa: Oh! Thank you. Thanks.

Noah: She was amazing.

Tessa: Oh, well, they seemed to like it, so... sorry.

Mariah: Are you kidding? They loved it. So did I. And Noah. And Devon, of course.

Devon: Yeah, I thought it was fantastic. Is it an original song?

Tessa: Uh, yeah! It is an original. Thank you.

Devon: Wow. Wow. What did I say to you last time we were here and saw her play?

Mariah: "Potential." I remember, you said it.

Devon: And now that we own Mergeron enterprises, we have this new state-of-the-art music streaming service where I'm gonna be signing a lot of new artists, such as yourself.

Tessa: [Laughs] Oh! Is this one of those hidden-camera things for that show you guys do, "GC unzipped?" Because if it is, I'll send it viral with some pretty graphic profanity.

Mariah: No, Tessa. This is real.

Tessa: Wow. For real, real?

Devon: Couldn't be more real, actually. I want you to be the first artist that we sign.

Noah: So, why would you leave town now?

Devon: You haven' said if you're even interested.

Tessa: Yeah. I'm super flattered. I just need some time to think about it.

Noah: Okay, well, just do us all a favor, all right? Don't think too long.

Billy: Reed, I'm gonna say this again because I don't think you hear me. Your mom knows that Phyllis and I are dating. She also knows that it doesn't change my commitment to the kids.

Reed: So... you being in love after the divorce, while I've been here -- just like that, it's over? Friend zone now permanently?

Billy: Look, your mom and I, we've been apart for quite some time, and we both realize that we work better as co-workers, as co-parents, as friends. But I'm still gonna be around, okay? Just she and I, our relationship is different now.

Reed: So why not keep her and Phyllis in orbit? Together, right? I mean, it's good insurance, and it's better than being alone!

Billy: Reed, I know you're confused and you're upset. I'm sorry if I had anything to do with that. But your relationship with Zoey and my relationship with your mother, they're not the same. The situation's completely different.

Charlie: The girl didn't tell me she already had a dude, and I believed her! Is that a crime? 'Cause I don't think so.

Mattie: But she's a cheater! And since it's wrong to break trust and lie, and since you were a part of it, you're also a cheater! Guilty by association. Mom, please tell him.

Cane: Um, hey, will you guys do me a favor and go and clean the table and empty the dishwasher and pack it for your mom? Thanks.

Lily: I cannot believe I just had that conversation with my kids, who are almost adults now, by the way. When did that happen?

Cane: Hey, what's this? Is this your interview?

Lily: Yeah. Same day service. Hilary brought it by before dinner.

Cane: Wait a second. Hilary was here tonight in this house, and she gave you that?

Lily: Yeah. Weird, right?

Billy: I understand how not cool that must have been, seeing Phyllis and I kissing there, okay? Especially if you think that I was doing that behind your mother's back. That won't happen again.

Reed: It's fine. I'm over it.

Billy: No, you need to understand that your mother and I, we are fine, okay? We are open and we are honest with each other.

Reed: But just not with me.

Billy: We should have been, and we'll be better at that. But we got time, okay? 'Cause we're both parents of those kids upstairs.

Reed: Real lucky for them. You know, I'm really glad that you're their dad and not mine.

Nikki: It's amazing, isn't it? How we still have certain people that we let push our buttons?

Jack: Oh, Dina is definitely that person for me.

Nikki: Well, despite everything, I'm glad that you're having a chance to reconnect with her.

Jack: I'm glad, too. I think. Hey, thanks for being great company tonight.

Nikki: Hey, no problem. You were the one who did all the heavy lifting. I'm glad we had this chat, though. I feel a lot better now than when I came in earlier.

Lily: You know, I should really check the interview and make sure it's okay before I send it to Barry.

Cane: You know what, I'm thinking that we should wait till the morning to watch that 'cause the kids have at least an hour of homework, and I'm kind of thinking that...

Lily: [Giggles] Oh, you brash and sassy man! I'll race you to the bedroom. But quietly! Quietly.

Next on "the young and the restless"...

I can tell you about Chloe. For the right price.

Cane: Do you know where it is? Do you know where that flash drive is? Just tell me you haven't sent it to your agent.

Billy: Victoria Newman, I respectfully tender my resignation.
