Episode # 11180 ~ Victor reveals a secret plan; Hilary encourages Juliet to fight back; Victoria puts someone on the chopping block at Brash & Sassy.

Provided By Suzanne

Victor: Chloe Mitchell is the reason I'm paying you so handsomely, so you do as I ask. You keep me apprised of any new developments. How long have you been standing there?

Scott: Long enough to hear you talking about Chloe Mitchell.

Dr. Harris: What are you doing in here, Chloe?

Chloe: I woke up, and I heard voices. I-I came in here. There was a man and a woman. They were sitting here, and they said my name and...

Dr. Harris: Okay, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. It's going to be okay.

Chloe: [Crying] No, no, it's not. I can't go to prison, doc. I can't go to prison.

Dr. Harris: No, no, no, no. Listen, listen, if you don't calm down, I'm gonna have to give you something to relax. Is that what you want?

Chloe: [Exhales sharply] No. No. I'll -- I'll be fine. I don't -- I don't want any more meds. I just -- I just really need to know who those people are.

Dr. Harris: Chloe.

Chloe: You said in our sessions... you said the only way to build trust is through honesty.

Dr. Harris: You're right. The man and the woman were asking about you.

Chloe: [Whimpering] Oh, no. Oh, they're here to get me, they're here to get me. [Panting] You have to help me, doc. Help me!

Dr. Harris: Chloe, if you listen to everything I say, you will be safe.

Chloe: Okay, I will do anything. You just don't understand. This is -- this is really bad if those people come and get me. There are other people who are gonna get hurt.

Dr. Harris: Everything will be fine, okay? I answered all of their questions. I told them that I didn't know where you were, and they believed me.

Chloe: Okay.

Dr. Harris: Okay? They are gone now. There is no reason to be upset.

Chloe: [Sighs]

Dr. Harris: Here, um... drawing always makes you feel better, helps you relax.

Chloe: Yeah. [Sniffles] Yeah, it does.

Nick: Hey. I'm sorry that the doctor couldn't give us any leads on Chloe.

Chelsea: You know, I can read people pretty well.

Nick: Yeah, that's true.

Chelsea: And I feel like he was holding back. I-I don't feel like I believe him.

Nick: What makes you think that?

Chelsea: Well, I-I mean, it just -- it felt like he was keeping something from us. Did you see how he practically, like, pushed us out the door?

Nick: Well, I mean, you know, we -- we just told him that a patient of his, whom he released, murdered someone. I mean, he's probably in there right now trying to wrap his mind around that.

Chelsea: I know, I just feel like I should have asked him more questions. I mean, people slip up when they're lying. They can't keep their stories straight. I wish I had another crack at him.

Nick: Well, Chelsea, I mean, we could try again, you know? We could get a later flight. It's not too late.

Chelsea: You know what? Let's do it. Let's go back inside.

Cane: Hey! How you doing?

Victoria: Why? What happened now?

Cane: Nothing happened now. I just -- you know, firing Billy was probably hard for you. I just wanted to let you know, you did the right thing.

Victoria: Billy's staying. He offered his resignation, but I didn't accept it.

Cane: Wait, wait, wait, wait. You fired Juliet?

Victoria: Yeah, it wasn't pleasant, but somebody had to do it.

Cane: Okay, wait, so earlier when, you know, I thought that Billy's head was on the chopping block and you didn't correct me, that was... why? You thought I'd fight for her?

Victoria: That's not why.

Cane: Okay, so, when you asked my opinion, you talked to Juliet and Billy, that was just for show 'cause you never really had any intention of firing him, did you?

Billy: Wish I could stay here all day.

Phyllis: Mm.

Billy: All year, actually.

Phyllis: Mm.

Billy: [Sighs] But I got to get back to the office.

Phyllis: To find out if Victoria's accepting your resignation?

Billy: Yep. No message, no text, no nothing, so I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

Phyllis: Well, I know it's the last thing you want, to leave the company.

Billy: Yeah, it is. The league said somebody has to pay the price, and I'm the logical choice, as I was the idiot who was betting with professional hockey players on the championship game.

Phyllis: It was a joke.

Billy: I know it was a joke.

Phyllis: What's wrong with people?

Billy: Some people don't get my sense of humor.

Phyllis: Yeah, well, I do.

Billy: Yeah, but you get a lot of things about me.

Phyllis: [Laughs] Hey, you know what? Even if Victoria tosses you to the curb...

Billy: That's very subtle of you.

Phyllis: I'm just saying... even if you -- I don't know -- if you decide to leave, if you're not part of the company, that is not the end of your career. You are going on to bigger and better things.

Billy: Maybe, but right now, I don't know what that would be.

Phyllis: Well, I do.

Additional sponsorship provided by...

Billy: Fenmore's? That's your brilliant idea?

Phyllis: It's perfect. You and Lauren are family. She would jump at the chance to have you on the team!

Billy: I would be jumping out the window the first meeting that I had because jack would not have this.

Phyllis: Yeah, well, he would have to just suck it up, okay? Lauren is majority owner of the company. It's not like you and jack would have a ton of interaction...

Billy: Phyllis...

Phyllis: We would shield you from his death glares, okay?

Billy: I don't know about that.

Phyllis: [Laughs] Look, there's another perk for working at Fenmore's.

Billy: Employee discount on top of the family discount?

Phyllis: You and me. Private office. Locked doors.

Billy: Okay, we tried this before. We worked together at restless style. It didn't end so well.

Phyllis: You fired me.

Billy: I had to.

Phyllis: Yeah, well, we are different people now. Period.

Billy: Now that is a compelling argument.

Phyllis: You know what, then forget about going back to brash & sassy! Put it behind you, move on, you know? We'll enjoy the sunset, we'll order some dinner, toast to new beginnings... come on. Dinner, champagne...

Billy: It's just -- you know what, it would be really difficult for me to say goodbye to brash & sassy! I have a real sense of accomplishment there. When my mother asked me to come on board, I wanted to prove myself to her, and I still do.

Phyllis: You did. You did. You proved yourself to Jill and all of the people who did not believe in you. And you are a talented -- I repeat, talented -- creative businessman, and any company would be lucky to have you.

Billy: Well, you're wrong. Because I'm the one that's lucky to have you.

Phyllis: [Laughs]

Juliet: Vodka martini. Uh, house brand. Uh, you can start a tab. Since I no longer have a job to get back to, I will be here a while.

Got it.

Victoria: Cane, would you wait?

Cane: You don't have to explain. You are the boss, and if you want to keep a screw-up on the payroll, that's up to you.

Victoria: Okay, look, Billy has been an asset to this company, and you know that. I didn't let my personal history with him influence my decision.

Cane: Okay, even if it's that true, you made a mistake because Billy is a problem. Always has been, always will be.

Victoria: Oh, now it sounds like you're letting your personal feelings get in the way, doesn't it?

Cane: He was caught on camera talking about betting on professional games with players, okay? He's the one who messed up, and he's the one who should be fired.

Victoria: I'm not excusing his behavior. What he did was idiotic.

Cane: Thank you.

Victoria: But Juliet was supposed to get confirmation from the league that the footage -- all of the footage -- was good to go. She didn't do that, which means she didn't do her job, and that's why I fired her.

Cane: Okay, so, she has to pay the price for his mistake?

Victoria: Look, I appreciate you sticking up for your friends, I really do, but I don't want you to fight me on this. What's done is done.

Hilary: Now, I need you to distribute these revisions and make sure that Mariah gets a copy -- don't even try to blame me.

Lily: This is isn't about you.

Hilary: I am glad that you recognize that. You know, most people would be looking for someone other than the guilty party to blame.

Lily: It's a misunderstanding. Pointing fingers would only make things worse.

Hilary: Well, that's an enlightened attitude. I thought you'd be going all scorched earth on everyone by now.

Lily: Why would I do that?

Hilary: I don't think we're talking about the same thing.

Lily: I'm talking about the commercial.

Hilary: The commercial...?

Lily: Yes, the hockey league tie-in. It's been scrapped.

Hilary: Ah.

Lily: I mean, yeah, I'm -- I'm bummed, but I'm not upset. I understand why it happened.

Hilary: Care to fill me in?

Lily: You don't know? I thought Billy or Victoria would have called you by now.

Hilary: No, it's been radio silent from brash & sassy! Since we got back from L.A.

Lily: The hockey league was gonna cancel the deal because of the footage that aired on your show, but then Victoria went to Toronto and changed their mind on the condition the commercial never makes it to the airwaves.

Hilary: Wow. Well, good on Victoria for fighting for what she wants. But, boo, I am so sorry about the commercial. Aww.

Lily: Yeah, you seem really sad about it.

Hilary: I am.

Lily: By the way, what were you talking about, and why would I be angry about that?

Hilary: Um, it was just, uh, the footage that I sent you.

Lily: Well, I didn't see it, and I never will.

Hilary: Why not?

Lily: Because cane destroyed the flash drive.

Hilary: Why would he do that?

Lily: Because the hockey league made it very clear they didn't want any of the L.A. Footage seeing the light of day. That includes all the behind-the-scenes stuff and my interview on your show.

Hilary: Well, that is unfortunate.

Lily: Yeah, and I couldn't send it to my agent, so there was no point in watching it, which I'm guessing was a good thing, based off of your reaction. Care to fill me in?

Scott: I thought you gave up looking for Chloe, but it sounds like that's not the case.

Victor: I'm still searching for her.

Scott: So...

Victor: She needs to pay for her crime.

Scott: This is about revenge.

Victor: No, Scott, it's about justice, you know? My family wants closure. Putting her behind bars will achieve that.

Scott: Kevin told me the authorities are running into a lot of dead ends. You know, I've covered a lot of cases like this -- people on the run, hoping to stay off the grid. It's almost impossible. You know, they eventually slip up, but with Chloe, to just disappear? Makes me think she had to have a little help.

Victor: She's a far more devious woman that anyone imagined.

Scott: Do you have any leads?

Victor: No, there was a sighting in Mexico, but unfortunately, no positive I.D.

Scott: I admire your tenacity. Between you and Chelsea, your son will be avenged.

Victor: So, you have spoken to Chelsea about Chloe?

Scott: I suggested she look into a psychiatric facility that Chloe was in. I was hoping that there'd be some answers there.

Victor: Well, thank you for trying to help me. I have tried that avenue. It was a dead end. And I'm certain Chelsea will not be any luckier.

[Doorbell rings]

Dr. Harris: [Whispering] Those people are back.

Chloe: You mean, the man and woman that were looking for me?

Dr. Harris: Yes. Yes. You have to hide. They cannot find you here. Go! Now! [Normal voice] Be right there! You're back.

Chelsea: Um, may we come in?

Dr. Harris: Look, I have already told you everything I could, and I am very busy.

Nick: Well, I'm sure you can spare a few more minutes for us.

Chelsea: This is very important to me and very important to my family. We need know what happened to Chloe.

Dr. Harris: Of course.

Lily: Why are you stalling?

Hilary: I'm not!

Lily: Really? So you always scrutinize your lunch order that intensely?

Theo: Actually, she does.

Hilary: Thank you, Theo. I will -- I'll make a decision later.

Lily: You just love playing games, don't you?

Hilary: What do you mean?

Lily: You're trying to get inside my head.

Hilary: And why would I do that?

Lily: Because you love playing games, and you're jealous.

Hilary: [Laughs] You -- you think I'm jealous...

Lily: Yeah.

Hilary: ...Of you?

Lily: Yeah. My career's taking off, and your old friend Barry is now my new agent.

Hilary: Oh, how could I forget? You never shut up about it.

Lily: Yeah, you're jealous and you're threatened because in your mind, there's only room for one queen bee of GC. Anyone who threatens that, you do everything in your power to intimidate them.

Hilary: The day that you come anywhere close to threatening the empire that I am building, I would gladly abdicate my throne and leave town, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. If ever, actually.

Lily: I don't have time for these games.

Hilary: Well, then, there's the door. Did you have something else to say?

Lily: I, uh... I...

Hilary: Uh...

Lily: I need a favor.

Hilary: [Laughs] You've got to be kidding me.

Lily: Well, I can't use the L.A. Footage. I want to use my other appearance.

Hilary: Oh, so you want the dare promotion?

Lily: Yes, if it's not too much trouble for you.

Hilary: I will get an intern to pull it. Just to let you know, it might take a little time. They're busy, you know, doing real work.

Lily: Thank you. So much.

Hilary: Oh, you're welcome. Bye-bye!

Lily: Trust me, as much as I want to, I can't leave yet.

Hilary: Let me guess. You need another favor.

Lily: Cane wanted me to make sure that you delete the hockey episode off the website and destroy the master copy.

Hilary: [Scoffs] Fine. Do you mind? Your brash & sassy! Perfume is living up to its name, and it's brash as hell and making me nauseous.

Lily: [Chuckles] With your head so far up in the clouds, I'm surprised you can smell it.

Hilary: I'm doing you a favor here. [Scoffs]

Lily: You know what? I want to see, with my own eyes, you take care of this.

Hilary: Fine. By all means. Let's make sure your beady little eyes see everything they need to see.

Cane: [Sighs] All right. I'm a team player, and I give you my word I won't say another thing about your decision. Okay?

Victoria: So, business as usual?

Cane: Business as usual.

Victoria: Good.

Cane: Good.

Billy: Vick, do you have a minute? I'd like to finish our conversation, please.

Victoria: Yeah, absolutely.

Billy: [Sighs] So, do I pack my things, stuff as many test tubes in my pocket as possible, or do I keep my parking spot?

Victoria: Oh, hold a second. You have a parking spot?

Billy: Vick...

Victoria: Where? Please tell me that it's not closer than mine.

Billy: Okay, come on. You're killing me right now.

Victoria: I formally reject your resignation, Mr. Abbott.

Billy: Vick, think about this for a second.

Victoria: And I have a new assignment for you.

Billy: Really?

Victoria: Yes. I need you to help me create a promotion for the hockey tie-in.

Billy: You're serious?

Victoria: Absolutely.

Billy: The league knows about this? They're okay with me coming back on board?

Victoria: I have met all of their stipulations regarding the incident.

Billy: Which means that...

Victoria: I had to fire Juliet.

Billy: [Sighs] It's not too late to reconsider, you know.

Victoria: I don't want you to beat yourself up about this. Okay? I need your head in the game. Can you do that for me?

Billy: Done.

Victoria: Good. Because, honestly, I need you around here. You're an asset to this company. But there are gonna be consequences for what you did in los Angeles.

Hilary: Keifer, you are the best webmaster ever. [Chuckles] I'm serious. How do you spell their names? Okay. I will send over two autographed head shots. Well, Jordan took so many amazing picks I couldn't choose just one. [Chuckles] Okay. I will send them over later today. Ciao. [Chuckles] Okay, so, the segment has been pulled from the website and the master copy has been deleted.

Lily: And every trace of the footage is gone?

Hilary: You've been perched on my shoulder the whole time.

Lily: So, there's no backup file or a flash drive somewhere?

Lily: The words "hockey," "league," "Billy," and "betting," and hopefully "lily" will never be uttered on "the Hilary hour" ever again. So, the national nightmare has been averted.

Lily: Okay.

Hilary: What? You don't believe me? Huh. Fine. You know, let's go through the video log, file by file. Make sure, hm? How about we start with the newest clip? Yeah, this is a particularly juicy one. Ready?

Lily: Uh, I'm sending a text to cane. Hold on.

Theo: We have a problem.

Hilary: What is it?

Theo: The guest for today's show cancelled.

Hilary: Are you serious? This is the second time that she's done this to us. Get her on the phone. I need to talk to her. Okay, I'm sorry to say -- show and tell has to wait.

Lily: You know what? It's fine. I believe you.

Hilary: Oh, well, my life's complete.

Lily: Besides, you wouldn't want to ruin your new and improved reputation by backstabbing Billy and Victoria, would you? Yeah.

Billy: First of all, I'm gonna pay you back for all the money lost on that commercial.

Victoria: That's not necessary. We'll find other revenue streams to offset the loss.

Billy: And what consequences are we talking about here?

Victoria: Well, you're not gonna have carte blanche on major projects. I'm gonna be more hands-on. And your budget's gonna get slashed.

Billy: Okay. I can deal with that. 'Cause I'm gonna do anything I can to prove myself to you once again.

Victoria: You just have to be more careful in the future.

Billy: I promise I will.

Victoria: Okay.

Billy: Vick, you can rely on me, okay? Not only here at work, but with Johnny and Katie, too.

Victoria: Yeah. You know, I was thinking maybe once the company gets its feet back on the ground, we could reconsider the trip to san Diego, you know, with the kids.

Billy: Yeah. Can we just, uh, talk about that later?

Victoria: Yeah. You know what? It seems like you're not interested, which is fine. It's fine. I can take them myself.

Billy: I'm not saying no. I'm just saying that -- okay, this is gonna sound ironic, but right now, I want to focus on work. We were just starting to get in a rhythm, and I don't want to lose that momentum, okay? Can you live with that?

Victoria: Yeah, definitely. I can live with that. Yeah.

Billy: Okay.

Scott: A list of past concerts held at chancellor park pavilion.

Victor: All right. Good work.

Scott: Well, it took me all of 30 seconds to compile.

Victor: Well, next time, do it in 20 seconds.

Scott: Next time. Look, victor, I wasn't happy about this assignment.

Victor: No kidding.

Scott: But I did it, and I will continue to do any menial task you throw my way because I am a man of my word.

Victor: That's good to know, Scott. So, what you'll do is you'll underline the events that are similar to the one that my wife is planning, okay?

Scott: Look, victor, this busy work isn't best utilizing my skill set. I should be here, working with your team to find Chloe.

Victor: I need you here.

Scott: But I -- there's so many better things for me to be doing.

Victor: [Sighs] Kindly close the door behind you.

Abby: Wow. Yet another meeting I wasn't included in.

Scott: How many does that make?

Abby: What did you and my dad discuss?

Scott: Newman business.

Abby: [Chuckles] Clever. Was it about the digital-media acquisition?

Scott: Nope.

Abby: The albin/wooley merger?

Scott: Not even close.

Abby: Stop being an ass and tell me what I missed so I can get caught up.

Scott: Look, this may be hard for you to comprehend, but, uh, not everything revolves around you.

Abby: [Sighs]

Chloe: You lied. You gave me money to disappear, so what are we doing here?

Victor: You honestly think I'd let you roam freely around the world?

Chloe: We had a deal. Okay, I wasn't gonna say anything about our partnership.

Victor: I kept up my end of the bargain. The police will not find you here.

Chloe: Please, just let me go. I swear I'm not gonna say --

Victor: You swear you won't talk about me. Is that it? I don't want my name associated with you. You got that?

Chloe: You promised me a new life.

Victor: And you promised me you wouldn't murder my son.

Chelsea: I understand that you don't know where Chloe is, but you probably know somebody who does.

Dr. Harris: Look, I already told you. She didn't have any close friends at the facility.

Nick: She's not talking about patients.

Chelsea: It would have been somebody from the outside. See, whoever this person was, we think that they helped Chloe escape town when we all discovered that she murdered Adam Newman.

Nick: What was the protocol for guests? Someone must have interacted with them. I mean, they can't just walk in and out on their own, right?

Dr. Harris: All visitors had to be approved by the patient's physician.

Chelsea: And you were Chloe's primary-care doctor, so you would know who came to see her. You have records, don't you? Well, I'm gonna need to see those records, and I'm not leaving here until I do.

Cane: [Sighs] So, Victoria tells me you're still working on the men's line despite what happened, huh?

Billy: What's that supposed to mean, cane?

Cane: Well, Billy, it means that you should have been fired for what happened in L.A., 'Cause that was your fault, and everybody knows it.

Billy: Not entirely, it wasn't. No.

Cane: You shouldn't have let Juliet take the fall for your stupidity. That was not cool.

Billy: You think I'm doing the happy dance over here, man? I'm not. I feel terrible about what happened.

Cane: Yeah, well, you can always make it right, can't you?

Billy: I tried. Victoria wouldn't accept my resignation.

Cane: Well, try harder. Unless that's not part of your plan.

Billy: I have a plan? Do I have a plan?

Cane: You have a plan, don't you? Yeah, to play the martyr so she feels sorry for you. You and I both know, okay, that you have no intention of taking the fall for this.

Billy: Why don't you go talk to Victoria and ask her how sincere I was about my resignation? Why don't you do that?

Cane: You could have walked away, despite what she wanted, and you still would have been fine, all right? But Juliet doesn't have your money, your connection, or your family. All she has is this job, and now she has nothing. And you know why? 'Cause you couldn't man up and do the right thing.

Juliet: Another, please.

Hilary: It looks like you could use some company.

Juliet: I'm good.

Hilary: You're upset with me. I get it. But I want to apologize. Okay, I was out of line to ask about your...one-night stand with cane in Tokyo. It was none of my business.

Juliet: No kidding.

Hilary: I was concerned, Juliet. But now I realize how much stress you must have been under, especially with everything else going on at brash & sassy!

Juliet: Yeah, you have no idea.

Hilary: Well, I heard that everything's back on track with the hockey league now. Does that mean that Victoria handled it?

Juliet: Yeah, she handled it.

Hilary: Good.

Juliet: By firing me.

Hilary: What?

Juliet: Yep. The league demanded a sacrifice, and Victoria just threw me right under the first bus that came along. Thanks.

Hilary: Drinks are on me tonight. And if you want to vent, I'm here to listen.

Chloe: What is this place?

Victor: Isn't it nice? It's your new home.

Chloe: I'm not just gonna sit back and do whatever you say, victor, not anymore. I'm not -- what are you doing here?

Dr. Harris: I'm gonna take care of you.

Chloe: Okay, you know, I-I don't need a chaperone, and I do not need a shrink.

Dr. Harris: It's clear you're not well, Chloe. I just want to continue to help you get better.

Chloe: [Chuckles] Thanks. Thank you very much, but no thanks. What is -- get off. Ow! Ow! Oh. [Whimpers]

Dr. Harris: It's okay.

Victor: All the windows and doors are secured?

Dr. Harris: They are.

Victor: And she's under 24-hour surveillance?

Dr. Harris: As discussed.

Victor: And no internet access?

Dr. Harris: All electronics will be kept in a locked room.

Victor: Good.

Dr. Harris: And the phone you supplied me with -- I will have it with me at all times in case we need to communicate.

Victor: We will. Here you go. Any problems, you call me.

Dr. Harris: I don't, uh, foresee any issues. She's in good hands.

Victor: Good.

Abby: Hi, dad.

Victor: Oh, hi, sweetheart.

Abby: Uh, I didn't mean to interrupt.

Victor: You're not, you're not. Come in.

Abby: Just thinking about Adam?

Victor: [Sighs] Thinking about how it all could have been so different, you know?

Abby: Well, he didn't make it easy on you.

Victor: He betrayed me too many times. You know, a lot of people think I'm heartless. But the fact is, there's nothing more devastating than to find out that one of your children, one of your own children can't be trusted.

Abby: Well, I would never want to make you feel that way.

Victor: Just always be honest with me, sweetheart. If you have something on your mind, look me in the eye and tell me, whatever it is, all right? I appreciate that more than someone looking in my face and then doing something behind my back.

Abby: [Sighs]

Chelsea: So, you're telling me Chloe did not have one visitor the entire time she was in your care?

Dr. Harris: I remember thinking how unusual it was. I even asked her about it.

Chelsea: And what did she tell you?

Dr. Harris: That she had no family. And she was adamant about that.

Chelsea: Oh. Poor Chloe. She must have been so lonely. [Sighs] We're just trying to figure out why she shut us out of her life.

Dr. Harris: Look, oftentimes, patients will cut family members out so they -- they aren't a burden. It's an act of love, but...often it does more harm than good.

Chelsea: And what about, um, letters, calls, e-mails?

Dr. Harris: All communications are monitored. It would have been impossible for her to have contact with anyone without me knowing. [Sighs] Look, I'm sorry. I can see how desperate you are to find Chloe, but...

Nick: Uh, yeah. We understand. We'll, uh, take off. Thanks for you time.

Dr. Harris: Look, I-I really hope that you -- you have more luck in finding her and that she gets the help she needs. I'll show you out.

[Keys clatter]

Chelsea: Dropped me keys. I'm just -- [Sighs] Been so on edge lately, I think I'm becoming a klutz. Thank you, doctor.

Scott: No wonder you miss so many meetings.

Abby: Excuse me? No, I have never missed a scheduled meeting. I'm just not invited to those top-secret ones you keep having with my dad every other day.

Scott: Oh, and does that hurt your feelings? Is that why you had to go buy yourself something pretty? You know, this probably cost more than most people make in a year.

Abby: I work hard for my honey.

Scott: Says the heiress.

Abby: Oh, please. Stop acting like you're some poor street urchin out of dickens novel. See, this? This is your mother's maiden name. Your grandfather founded the store.

Scott: And we thank you for your patronage.

Abby: Okay. You know, um, there's nothing wrong with a little retail therapy.

Scott: I never said there was.

Abby: Yet you sit there judging me, trying to make me feel bad for spending my money. But you know what? I don't feel bad. I feel great, in fact. I am helping stimulate the economy, and every time I shop, I donate an equivalent amount to a charity. So, yeah, judge that.

Scott: How could I possibly judge the, uh, patron saint of retail?

Abby: I'm done here.

Scott: Yeah.

Abby: Mm-hmm. You know what? Shopping -- yeah, it actually helps me solve problems. I have solved many complicated problems while browsing through stores.

Scott: Oh, is that so?

Abby: Oh, please. Do not look down on me, Scott Grainger, because you and I -- we're really not that different. You keep throwing it in my face that I'm victor Newman's daughter, and that's why I've gotten as far as I have at the company. But I'm sorry, how did you get that fancy made-up title at Newman? [Chuckles] Oh, that's right. That's right. My dad handed it to you on a plate. So, really, the only difference between the two of us is that I am making the most out of the opportunities I've been presented with while you are constantly whining about yours.

Scott: Have a nice day.

Hilary: I'm so sorry that Victoria didn't have your back.

Juliet: I mean, I-I messed up. I own that. Right, but -- but what about all the times where I didn't mess up, like when I saved the Asia deal?

Hilary: Yes.

Juliet: And then I stepped back and I let cane take all the credit. Billy and Victoria -- they yanked me off the project I was working on to put me on the hockey commercial. Did I complain? No. No, I got the job done and I exceeded expectations.

Hilary: Mm-hmm. See, I don't understand why Victoria just didn't stand up to the league, just tell them, "there is no way that I'm gonna fire anyone."

Juliet: Oh, maybe she thought there was too much at stake, that if she pushed back, the league would have walked away.

Hilary: No, no, but still, as the owner of my own show, I can never imagine throwing one of my employees under the bus like that. It says something about Victoria's leadership skills. Or lack of.

Juliet: You know, she has such a great reputation in the business world. I was really, really excited to work with her.

Hilary: Well, what do you think now?

Juliet: I think I am unemployed, and I have a pile of bills, student loans, and no steady income. I uprooted my life when I took that job. You know, it's so unfair. Billy and Victoria get to walk away unscathed, but my reputation's taken a hit? I mean, who wants to hire someone who was fired by a Newman?

Hilary: It's a horrible situation. And you're right. You do not deserve to be treated that way.

Juliet: Yeah, well, nothing I can do about it now.

Hilary: I don't know about that.

Billy: You know, I have faith in Juliet. She's gonna be just fine, because she's smart, professional, ambitious -- all the things you're not. And, I mean, you did fine.

Cane: Says the irresponsible man-child with a gambling addiction who likes to hide behind his ex-wife.

Billy: I'm so interested -- what's got you more pissed off, cane -- the fact that your biggest fan got fired or the fact that you're not gonna be able to cozy up to Victoria as her right-hand man?

Cane: You know what? You skated by on this one, but sooner or later, your luck's gonna run out. And when it does, see, Victoria's gonna realize you're a detriment to the company, and she's just gonna get rid of you.

Billy: See, you've been saying that since the beginning, cane, and I'm still here. And I'm not going anywhere. So, you can either live with that or you can find another job.

Victoria: Oh, Phyllis. Hi.

Phyllis: Hi, Victoria. Congratulations on saving the hockey deal.

Victoria: Well, there's still a lot of work to be done, but, fortunately, I have Billy to help me get things back on track.

Phyllis: So, you didn't accept his resignation.

Victoria: Yeah, well, that was never gonna happen, because I need him.

Cane: Excuse me. I will check you later, okay?

Billy: See you later, buddy.

Cane: Looking forward to it, fella.

Victoria: Why do you always have to push his buttons?

Billy: Ah, they're big, and it's fun. Hi.

Phyllis: Hi, there.

Billy: How are you?

Phyllis: Good. Well, I just found out the good news. You're staying at brash & sassy! I'm happy for you.

Billy: Yes, I am. Thank you. No place I'd rather be.

Victoria: Well, that means a lot. I'm really glad that we're still a team.

Victoria: The hockey league fiasco was a blip. We'll come out stronger, as we always do in a crisis.

Billy: Yes, we will. I just hate that my good luck came at the expense of somebody else. Juliet was let go.

Phyllis: That's too bad.

Billy: Yeah, it is, 'cause she loved her job.

Victoria: Yeah. I'm sorry about it, too. I-I didn't want it. But she made a critical mistake. And as much as I wanted to keep her on, you're much more important to this company, Billy.

Phyllis: It's difficult when two people want the same thing. There's always a winner and a loser.

Lily: Poor Juliet. I really liked her.

Cane: Yeah, it's not right that she's suffering from other people's mistakes.

Lily: I mean, I'm not defending Victoria, but the league did put her in a no-win situation.

Cane: Well, if she fired Billy, we all would have won, wouldn't we?

Lily: Have you spoken to Juliet?

Cane: Not since all this went down. I'm sure she's upset, 'cause she put everything she had into this job.

Lily: Well, who knows? Maybe this could be a good thing. You know, she might be feeling awful right now, but this could lead to a better opportunity for her.

Juliet: No, you don't get it. Victoria thought I was expendable. It's game over for me at brash & sassy!

Hilary: Not if you're willing to fight.

Juliet: Fight? I was the lowest ranking executive on the team. I was there for a few months. I have zero leverage.

Hilary: You have more power than you realize. Trust me on this.

Nick: Sorry that was a bust.

Chelsea: Maybe not.

Nick: Chelsea, we got nothing new on Chloe.

Chelsea: No. I-I might have.

Nick: What?

Chelsea: There was a sketch pad on the table. And what I saw makes me think that dr. Harris knows exactly where Chloe is.

Dr. Harris: Look, I covered, but I think they're suspicious. What am I supposed to do now?

Victor: I hoped it wouldn't come to this, but we have no choice. You know what you have to do.

Dr. Harris: The nuclear option. Mr. Newman --

Victor: It's the only way.

Dr. Harris: All right. I'll, uh... I'll take care of her.

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

Nikki: What have you done now?

Chelsea: Please go back with me. I'm positive Chloe's in that house.

Dr. Harris: [Sighs]
