Episode # 11227 ~ Lily reaches her breaking point in her marriage; Lauren calls a truce with Sharon; Phyllis wants Billy to keep his distance from Victoria.

Provided By Suzanne

Lily: Cane screwed you over?

Billy: Big time.

Lily: How? Would somebody please explain what's going on? Wh-what does the camera guy from L.A. Have to do with any of this?

Victoria: Remember that crucial moment from the behind-the-scenes footage that we were all scrambling to find after the shoot?

Lily: The one where Billy was saying that betting on games was a joke?

Billy: Cane paid Jesse to delete the footage.

Lily: What? Why?

Victoria: Why do you think? He was trying to make Billy look bad.

Billy: No, let's be more specific. To tank me, the job, the hockey tie-in... and the commercial.

Victoria: Your commercial, actually.

Lily: Please tell me you didn't do that. That it's not true.

Mattie: And in case you didn't notice, I wasn't the only one who enjoyed your performance tonight.

Reed: What do you mean?

Mattie: All your groupies?

Reed: Oh. [Laughs]

Mattie: They couldn't take their eyes off of you. I'm serious. Why are you hanging out with me instead of one of them? I know I'm not your type.

Reed: [Scoffs] What do you think my type is?

Mattie: The same type my brother likes.

Reed: Which is?

Mattie: Girls like Zoey.

Reed: [Sighs] Okay, I'll admit I was into Zoey.

Mattie: See?

Reed: But only at first. I mean, once I realized that she was more concerned with, uh, social media and popularity, I lost interest.

Mattie: Okay. [Clears throat] So...what is your type?

Reed: She's super smart. She reads books besides the ones that are gonna be on the test. She prefers to be on the sidelines watching rather than the center of attention. And she understands why I'm so serious about my music, because... she's got plans and stuff that she wants to do with her life, that she's gonna be able to do because she's bright and driven and -- and real. And she probably doesn't even know how beautiful she is.

Charlie: Oh, good. I found you.

Lily: [Sighs]

Cane: Sweetheart. Sweetheart...

Billy: I wish for your sake it wasn't true, lily, but the evidence is right here on this memory card from Jesse's camera. I'm sorry.

Phyllis: So she would exclusively design this collection for Fenmore's. Chelsea lives right here in town, so we can maximize the content for the website. And you know what, we can video-tease the collection. We can get behind the scenes of her working on it. And she is highly motivated to make this happen. So if you're as excited as I am, one phone call to Chelsea makes it official.

Lauren: [Stammering] Hold it. Let's slow this down a tad.

Paul: Hey, Sharon. How are you?

Sharon: Hi. Thank you so much for meeting us here instead of...

Paul: Oh, no problem.

Sharon: ...The underground. You know, I'm short a manager tonight.

Paul: No problem at all. Hi, Scott. How's it going?

Scott: Hey. Good, good.

Sharon: So [Sighs] I'm sick about what happened.

Paul: Why? I mean, do you realize what a lucky break this is -- your meeting the young girl we're trying to find?

Scott: Yeah, Sharon handled things perfectly. The way she approached crystal, what she said to her, and, uh, helping her feel as safe as possible.

Paul: Yeah, that's excellent.

Sharon: But it didn't work. She was still so scared she ran off. If anything happens to her, I'll feel it's my responsibility.

Scott: Look, I've been trying to tell her that's not true.

Paul: I-I don't understand why crystal's safety would be your responsibility.

Sharon: Because I promised her that I'd protect her. You got to help me find her, Paul. Tonight.

Zack: Not only was she using somebody else's photos in her online profile, she ordered the most expensive thing on the menu, which, I mean...

[Abby laughs]

Zack: But then she proceeds to tell the couple at the next table -- who is having their 60th anniversary, mind you -- to, uh, "shut the hell up."

Abby: No! She did not.

Zack: No, you're right. She used a lot more profanity than that.

Abby: [Laughs] Oh, my gosh. That poor little old couple!

Zack: I'm sorry, what about me? I had to pay for their dinner and the psycho's.

Abby: Okay, but you did ask her out.

Zack: Well, I am thinking it was worth it, because now I can truly appreciate what it means to be sitting here with someone like you.

Abby: Well, then, I should be grateful for every horrible, rotten date, and every nightmare woman that you went out with. Because it led you to create the app.

Zack: Which led me to you.

Abby: And now we're here together.

Zack: Can I ask you a personal question?

Abby: Wow. [Laughs] Um... yeah. I guess that would be more appropriate than going over the budget for the app, given the breeze and the candlelight. [Laughs]

Zack: Uh, it's about your family.

Lauren: You know, before online sales crushed retail's butt, I would have jumped at the chance to work with a designer like Chelsea. But I need to be cautious now. Please don't be crushed, honey.

Phyllis: I don't want you to do anything that puts Fenmore's at risk.

Lauren: And, you know, as slow and delicate as our recovery has been, it's been miraculous. And a big chunk of that credit goes to you for revitalizing our website.

Phyllis: I'm glad I could help.

Lauren: And when I think of how close we came to making a deal with that Benjamin Hochman...

Phyllis: Ugh.

Lauren: We completely dodged a bullet.

Phyllis: As personalities go, I'll take jack over that walking ego trip any day.

Lauren: Oh, no. It's worse than you think. After he blew us off, he acquired a major stake in nationwide department stores.

Phyllis: Oh, I hadn't heard that.

Lauren: He doesn't really want the stores. What he wanted was the real estate. And he has been demolishing each store in the chain to put up his hideous, overpriced condos.

Phyllis: Pompous ass and a corporate raider? How lovely.

Lauren: Well, you, uh, want to ruin your business, he is your man. When I think about all those C.E.O.S scrambling to keep their companies afloat...

Phyllis: Like Victoria.

Lauren: Is there trouble with brash & sassy now?

Phyllis: They have been hit with some hefty losses recently.

Lauren: You know, Michael said something about settling a lawsuit, or...

Phyllis: Just one of many issues. Billy and Victoria, they work about 15-hour days to keep the company afloat. And I tell you -- her majesty does not mind one bit.

Lily: You want this back, right?

Victoria: Thank you. We didn't mean to hurt you. But finding out what cane did and keeping it from you seemed much worse.

Cane: You just wanted to ruin me in front of my wife, though, didn't you?

Billy: Lily's our friend. She deserved to know what's going on. You sure as hell weren't gonna tell her. Cane paid Jesse to delete the footage and go away. Jesse showed up for a second shakedown. Cane paid him $25,000 just today.

Lily: $25,000?

Cane: I had no choice. I had no choice, baby. He would have told everybody.

Victoria: He told us anyway. It's just another tremendous lack of judgment to add to your long list.

Cane: Could you please leave my house and take him with you?

Billy: We'll leave if lily wants us to.

Lily: I need to [Clears throat] Talk to cane alone, please. [Sniffles]

Cane: I want you to get out. Could you please leave.

Victoria: We're sorry about everything.

Billy: Lily, you need anything, you let us know, okay? Any time.

Cane: Could you please leave.

[Door closes]

Lily: [Sighs shakily] I don't even know who you are anymore.

Paul: All I have is a first name -- crystal. Probably an alias. Caucasian female. 5'3". 105 pounds. Brown hair, brown eyes. Right. I want a priority dispatch for all officers on duty. Okay. Thank you. All right. In about five minutes, I'll have officers looking for crystal, particularly in the vicinity of the underground.

Sharon: That's a good start. And what were you saying about surveillance footage?

Paul: Oh, I've got a guy looking at security-camera footage in the area. And if we get lucky, we might catch crystal heading in a certain direction. Plus, you gave her your cell phone number. Which, in this case, can work to our advantage. She could reach out to you at any time.

Sharon: God, I hope she does. You know, I shouldn't have left her side until I knew she was in a safe place.

Scott: She's an adult, Sharon -- barely. So you can't predict or control her behavior.

Sharon: Well, that doesn't make me any less afraid for her.

Scott: I know.

Sharon: What happened to crystal is exactly how Paul described. She had no idea that she was being recruited into a sex ring. She trusted the wrong person, a woman -- which for me is even more vile. Before crystal even knew what was happening, she was being forced into prostitution.

Paul: Right. Well, we need to find crystal first. And we will get her out of this life forever. But she's gonna have to help us identify and bring down the scum who's running this ring.

Sharon: You know, when you start reading the statistics and get a sense of how pervasive and huge this is, it feels hopeless. Like anything any one person could do wouldn't even make a dent. I want to do enough to make a difference.

Scott: You are. Maybe there's something of my own I can do to help.

Billy: Hm-hm. It's gonna be a little bit difficult to savory this Victory being this worried about lily. [Sighs]

Victoria: I know. But we had to tell her. We couldn't wait. Maybe we should have told her alone. [Sighs] You know, it broke my heart leaving her there with cane.

Billy: Yeah, I know. But it's better that he was there to get called out. He would just keep lying about everything else.

Victoria: [Sighs] I hope she doesn't hate us for that.

Billy: I know lily. She hates being placated even worse. We'll just have to take turns checking in on her, making sure she's okay.

Victoria: It's good that she found out what her husband was pulling behind her back. But it's awful that her family's falling to pieces.

Billy: Yeah. [Sighs] Victoria? Hey. You okay?

Victoria: Yeah. I'm great. [Sighs] Now that the truth is out, I think it's the best day I've had since Juliet stabbed us in the back with that bogus lawsuit.

Billy: This'll be good for your head.

Victoria: Oh. There's nothing wrong with my head.

Charlie: I'm not gonna bother you two anymore. You know, you can do whatever, however. That's your business. As long as this guy --

Mattie: Reed.

Charlie: Yeah, you know, whatever. As long as he treats you right, I'll stay out of it. But if you don't, I'm gonna have to give you and that pretty face a serious beatdown. We clear?

Reed: Aw. Your brother thinks I'm pretty.

[Mattie laughs]

Charlie: Mattie. Come on. Did you hear what I said?

Mattie: Everyone in here did. But thank you for calling a truce. Just because our parents are fighting doesn't mean the three of us can't get along.

Charlie: Yeah. You know, that's what I was trying to say. Uh...I'm gonna grab some coffee.

Mattie: Can you bring us refills? Please? In honor of the truce?

Charlie: Now you're just taking advantage of my good nature.

Juliet: Hi. One mint tea to go, please.

Charlie: Hey. It's nice to see you again. GCAC pool, remember?

Juliet: Yes, that's right. I never got a chance to thank you for your help that day.

Charlie: Oh, happy to do it any time you come by.

Reed: Whoa. Why -- why is your brother talking to Juliet?

Mattie: Juliet? As in that Juliet?

Reed: [Scoffs] Yeah, have you -- have never seen her before?

Juliet: Hi, reed.

Charlie: You two know each other?

Reed: [Scoffs] Yeah. Um... this is the woman that sued my mom.

Mattie: And the one that dad got pregnant.

Juliet: I know this must be a difficult time for you guys. I've heard so much about the wonder twins, Charlie and Mattie. I've been wanting to meet you. Just not exactly like this, though.

Charlie: The other day at the pool, did you know who I was?

Juliet: No. I found out later. I had no idea. So I wasn't trying to be weird or play games.

Reed: Oh, games. Like the one you played with my mom where you really took home the big cash prize?

Mattie: He's talking about the fake lawsuit against my dad.

Reed: And now you're pregnant?

Charlie: I mean, how can you just stand there and act like you have no clue what's going on? Like it's no big deal? Do you have any idea what you did to our family?

Mattie: Do you even care?

Juliet: I do care. And I think about it all the time, and I feel terrible. And I am so sorry all of you got hurt. I am just trying to move forward with my life. So don't think I'm not sorry, because I am. I really am. Excuse me.

Phyllis: Hey, you two. Just had dinner with Lauren.

Billy: Hey.

Phyllis: Hi. I didn't know you'd end up here, too.

Billy: [Sighs]

Phyllis: What are you celebrating?

Victoria: Just the end of an extra hellish day.

Billy: Mm. Can I pour you a glass?

Phyllis: No, thank you. I am tired. I'm gonna head home... if you'd like a ride.

Billy: Yeah, yeah, yeah. For sure. Uh... we can give you a lift if you don't feel like driving.

Phyllis: Are you not feeling well?

Victoria: No. No, no. I'm -- I'm feeling great. I was checked out. It's confirmed by my doctor. Billy just won't stop fussing over me.

Billy: Okay. I don't fuss.

Victoria: All right, you two. Go, enjoy the rest of your beautiful evening. I'm gonna do the same, relaxing on the deck upstairs.

Billy: Okay. We'll see you later.

Scott: So, here's what I want to do. Chronicle the search for crystal and the investigation into this sex-trafficking ring. Serialize it into weekly installments, and give it high visibility at the digital-media company I'm running for Newman.

Sharon: But you would change all the names and the places, right? I mean, you would have to.

Scott: Of course, along with any specifics that could compromise Paul's investigation.

Paul: Right. The internet has made it so easy for rings like these to -- to thrive under the radar. I mean, kidnapping, assault, human trafficking... it's all a lot closer than people realize.

Sharon: I read that these pimps target ordinary, suburban neighborhoods all over the country.

Scott: We know it's happening here. The fact that ordinary people are living right next door to these operations and don't even know what's happening... that's a powerful angle for me to write from.

Lauren: [Exclaims] I should get brownies to go more often. Hi. Hi, honey.

Scott: Hey. How you doing?

Lauren: Good. Hi, there.

Paul: Hi, there. How you doing?

Lauren: Good.

Paul: You look great.

Lauren: Thank you. You, too.

Scott: How are things with you, mom?

Lauren: You know what, you could settle a bet. So, I say you moved out and neglected to tell me, and Michael says that you just never come home.

Scott: I've had other places to be. And if that's your way of saying we should spend some more time together, I-I'd like that, too. But you don't need to invent wagers. Just, uh, call me.

Lauren: All right. Done. Now, it was very serious in here when I walked in. Is everything all right?

Paul: Oh, yeah. Just police business.

Scott: Sharon's actually helping the department as an extension of her volunteer work at the crisis hotline.

Lauren: I heard about that. There's nothing like giving back to people in need to help you grow as a person.

Sharon: Yes, that's true. And contributing to the community is very important to me.

Scott: I think it's amazing what you're doing. But that's just the person you are.

Paul: [Chuckles] Okay. So, you know, it's been ages since you and I have caught up. It would be a shame to waste this opportunity. Why don't you and I, uh...?

Lauren: Okay.

Paul: We'll be back.

Lauren: Yeah.

Lily: We talked about what Billy did, what Victoria did, what Juliet did. But I want to talk about what you did. Why you felt the need to feed me another massive lie. You took the money that we saved for our kids' tuition as a blackmail payment to your little accomplice, Jesse.

Cane: I know you're furious at me for what I did. We still have the money for the tuition.

Lily: If you think that's what this is about, you don't know anything about this. You looked me in my face and lied about some super-urgent investment you had to make. Like you lied about every other stupid, reckless move that you've made, like saying you never had sex in Tokyo.

Cane: No, I know. And I've hated myself for every lie I've told you. But I was just so scared that I was gonna lose you...

Lily: Oh, God! Stop using that as an excuse!

Cane: It's not an excuse. I am telling you the truth. 'Cause you and the kids are family. You mean everything to me. I was just thinking to myself if I could find some way just to hold on to you, I could fix everything. I could fix everything --

Lily: Cane, look around! Nothing is fixed. You make everything worse over and over again, and I can't take it anymore.

Cane: You're not gonna have to take it anymore, I promise you. 'Cause as long as I live, I will never lie to you again. I promise you. Just... believe me. Just -- just give me a chance to prove this to you. Let me prove it to you, baby. Sweetheart -- sweetheart...

Lily: I've tried to be so strong for all of us, because family is everything to me.

Cane: I know it is. Me too.

Lily: You say that, but it isn't. You don't put us first. You put yourself and your needs and fears before anyone else.

Cane: You're right. I -- I'm guilty. I admit this. I do, darling. But... this is a lesson I'll never forget. Please don't give up on us. Let me make it up to you

Lily: How can you even begin to atone for what you have done to this family? I don't want to be anywhere near you.

Cane: [Sighs]

Lily: I want you to leave this house tonight.

Cane: You don't mean that. You don't mean that.

Lily: Pack your bags and go. Just get out.

Abby: Yeah, I really wish you hadn't watched that "Hilary hour" segment about the charity event. [Laughs]

Zack: I knew there was some family drama, but I had no idea that this --

Abby: Yeah... [Chuckles]

Zack: I mean, that footage in the parking lot, that's crazy, right?

Abby: It was something.

Zack: I don't want to overstep my bounds, but this drama in the Newman family, does that involve you?

Abby: Whatever is going on with my dad and Nikki and their kids, I'm -- I'm totally uninvolved.

Zack: So you and Victor are good?

Abby: Yeah. My dad's a challenging man, and we've had our problems. But we've worked through them. It hasn't always been easy. Despite what you and the rest of the planet saw, um... my dad, he -- he loves his family deeply.

Zack: Well, I trust your opinion a whole lot more than Hilary's spy-cam.

[Abby laughs] But I am glad we hung out with your mom first.

Abby: Yeah, I get that a lot. [Chuckles] So, wait. Tell me about you, your family. You never mention them.

Zack: Probably just bore you. Not much to tell.

Abby: Oh, I'm starting to get the feeling that you're hiding something heinous and jaw-dropping.

Zack: Nailed it.

[Abby laughs]

Zack: Okay. Strap in. I grew up near Chicago. Middle-class, on a typical street. None of my relatives have ever been exposed via hidden camera.

Abby: Oh, good. [Laughs]

Zack: Most of them just range somewhere between boring and predictable.

Abby: Well, it sounds peaceful and home-y, and I'm envious. So, when you said "near" Chicago, um, where --

[Cell phone rings]

Zack: [Sighs] I'm so sorry. I got to take this.

Abby: It's fine. No. Um, go ahead.

Zack: All right. Hey. Whatever it is, make it quick. What? No. I get it. Yeah. [Sighs] My software developer is freaking out. There's a bug in the app.

Abby: Oh, my gosh. How serious?

Zack: Ah, don't worry. We'll fix it. [Sighs] But he needs me now.

Abby: Oh. [Sighs]

Zack: I'm a rotten date.

Abby: You are not.

Zack: Let's have a do-over soon.

Abby: I'd love that. And don't think that you're mistreating me. Work happens, right?

Zack: You're the best.

Abby: Bye.

Billy: Cane paid Jesse to delete the footage and go away. Jesse showed up for a second shakedown. Cane paid him $25,000 just today.

Victoria: [Gasps]

Abby: Hey. You all right?

Victoria: I don't know.

Paul: [Laughs] You know, it is kind of cute, the way you disapprove of Scott's new girlfriend. I mean, it kind of reminds me of, um... the way my mom acted around you when we were together.

Lauren: Oh, don't even. I'm not doing the Mary Williams here.

Paul: Mm, maybe.

Lauren: Mm. He's a grown man. I'm not interfering in his love life at all.

Paul: Well, you're not approving of it, either.

Lauren: Well... you know, I just wish he would find someone more like him, who is adventurous and, you know, has ambition. Not someone with a huge set of baggage and a troubled history, to say the least.

Paul: Okay. I know what you're saying. But Sharon is transforming her life. I mean, come on. Look. She's running the coffeehouse. She's taking college classes. I've seen her in action at the crisis hotline. You know, maybe it's not my place, but as her former father-in-law, I'm gonna say it anyway -- I am proud of her.

Lauren: Hm. So you're saying that I should cut her some slack.

Paul: Well, I think if you do, you might even like the person she's becoming.

Scott: I've missed being this excited about a story, you know? I can turn this into something huge, captivate a whole new readership... taking them along with me on police raids, getting exclusive interviews with former sex-ring workers... how were they trafficked? How did they escape? I mean, it couldn't be more compelling. You don't look all that compelled. What's wrong?

Sharon: I'm just wondering what your goal in this is. Awards? Page views?

Scott: Would those be bad? I thought you were trying to raise awareness.

Sharon: Well, I also want to give crystal and other victims a voice. I want them to know that they're viewed as more than just an amusing news story. They're -- they're human beings. They're worth caring about.

Scott: I do care.

Sharon: Okay, well, remember, this is about them. Not your digital-media business.

Scott: [Sighs]

Sharon: And if you don't know that, then you and I are gonna have a big problem.

Scott: Hey. I'm sorry if I seemed insensitive. Viewing tragic situations as career opportunities, it's unfortunate... but it's how we reporters earn our living. You know, if my writing can help these women change their lives and get justice for how they suffered, that's the highest accolade I can get.

Sharon: Thank you. Thanks for saying that. And -- and for your passion, and just for everything, you know?

Paul: All right. I'm gonna take off. I'm gonna check in at the department. But if you hear from your friend, give me a call, all right?

Sharon: I will. Thank you.

Paul: Okay. Great to see you.

Lauren: Great to see you.

Paul: Love to catch up. It's fun. All right, Scott.

Scott: See you, Paul.

Sharon: And, Lauren, this is for you. It's one dozen brownies and some goodie samples.

Lauren: Oh, thank you. And no, no. It's on the house.

Lauren: Really? That's very sweet. Thank you.

Scott: I, uh, hope you stop in again soon, mom.

Lauren: [Chuckles] Oh, I will. But you're not getting rid of me that fast.

Billy: Well, leave it to cane to find the sleaziest, most unethical cameraman in Hollywood. Cut to the commercial doesn't air, my reputation with the hockey league is shot. Basically gets what he wants, right?

Phyllis: Well, you know, to be accurate, cane wanted you fired.

Billy: Yeah. Well, I still have my job. I guess I should be grateful to Victoria for that.

Phyllis: Can we relax, please, and enjoy our imported prosecco, okay, which is allegedly infused with Sardinian citrus, which I don't know. Can you taste that? 'Cause I can't.

Billy: Okay, look. I know that I shouldn't do this, okay, but I can't help but think, "what if?" What if he didn't try and pull off this stunt? Juliet would still have a job. There wouldn't be a lawsuit. The commercial would have aired. We wouldn't have had a bad quarter. One minute of footage that's deleted caused a chain reaction that takes down brash & sassy. I mean, does that not just blow your mind?

Phyllis: I've processed it, and I've moved on, which I really wish you could. Because you know why?

Billy: Why?

Phyllis: As of this moment, I'm declaring this entire apartment a brash & sassy-free zone.

Abby: Help me understand what this is about. Is it dad and nick fighting?

Victoria: No, that -- that's very upsetting, but I'm just having other problems, other things that I'm dealing with right now, so...

Abby: Okay, well, tell me about them. Talking about it always helps you feel better.

Victoria: I really appreciate that. I do, Abby. [Scoffs] I -- [Sighs] You just don't need to hear about all of this stuff.

Abby: Victoria, stop. I'm here. I-I want to help. I'm listening.

Victoria: All right. I suppose [Sighs] It all started when Billy decided that we should shoot the commercial in Hollywood.

Abby: The one that you can't use.

Victoria: Because Billy was caught on tape talking to the hockey players about gambling. And... so we lost all of that money. And [Sighs] I salvaged the situation, but I had to fire Juliet. And then she sued me for sexual harassment.

Abby: Wait, she's accusing you of sexually harassing her?

Victoria: No, cane. And the company. And cane said that she was lying, so I decided that I wouldn't settle. But it turns out that he was lying, and he slept with her, and now she's pregnant and --

Abby: Wait, cane cheated on lily?

Victoria: ...And I had to pay Juliet a ton of cash and then I found out today that cane sabotaged Billy right in the middle of Hollywood because he's petty and vindictive. And he really sabotaged my company. And, God, I hate him for that so much. I hate him for that, and -- and now I don't even know if I can keep brash & sassy afloat. I don't know if I can do it.

Abby: Oh, my God. I had no idea things were that bad.

Victoria: And -- and -- and our last quarter was terrible, and I had to let go of two key executives, and I don't know if I can afford to hire any others because I already tapped into all of our reserves because of the damages check, and I am the one now that has to fix everything because I am the one who fixes everything. [Crying] And I just feel so alone in all of this. [Sobbing] I feel so alone in all of this. [Sighs]

[Lily crying quietly]

[Door opens]

Lily: [Sniffles] Hey. [Clears throat] How was your evenings?

Mattie: Okay.

Charlie: Mine was chill.

Mattie: Mom, what's wrong?

Lily: I... I hate to tell you this.

Charlie: It doesn't matter what it is -- we can handle it.

Mattie: Whatever it is, we're here to help. Let us take care of you for a change.

Lauren: So you two have been dating for quite some time, and we have never gotten together as a foursome.

Scott: Uh-oh. What are you and Michael mixed up in? Bridge or golf?

Lauren: Dinner. And don't worry -- I'll order in.

Scott: [Chuckles]

Sharon: Well, thanks, Lauren. Um...we would love to. I appreciate the invitation.

Scott: And I appreciate you not trying to cook.

Lauren: I'm sure.

[Sharon and Scott chuckle]

Lauren: Okay. Good. Everyone's happy. So, look at your schedule, pick a day. I'm flexible. Okay? Nice to see you.

Scott: Bye, Mom.

Lauren: Bye.

Sharon: Bye. Okay. So, it wasn't the warmest invitation ever, but, you know, baby steps, I guess.

Scott: Yeah. We don't need my mother's approval, but that took some effort, so... I applaud her.

Sharon: Even though Paul talked her into it?

Scott: Well, like you said -- baby steps.

Sharon: I wonder how he did it.

Scott: You know, he might have told her that, uh, I seem happy, and that she'd better accept that you're a part of my life now.

Sharon: Go, Paul.

Scott: Yeah.

Billy: You're right. I can't taste the citrus in this, either. [Sighs] Okay. I apologize, all right? I have been talking about work too much.

Phyllis: It's kind of all you talk about.

Billy: Well, I'm sorry. I'm just -- I'm preoccupied.

Phyllis: [Sighs] I care about my job very much. But I try not to bring it home. I mean, there are so many things that we can talk about, so many things that we could do together, and I don't know how you have the life-work balance without the life part.

Billy: I get it. Listen -- hold on a second. This is not how I wanted to spend my summer, believe me. I don't want you to think that I'm [Sighs] Not paying attention to you or to us.

Phyllis: Then don't.

Billy: Phyllis, I really wish that I could just go away on romantic weekends, and sit here and binge-watch our favorite television show...

Phyllis: Then we have to make it a priority, and then that's what we have to do.

Billy: I can't do that right now. Until brash & sassy is back on track. Until that happens, my job has to be my life.

Phyllis: [Sighs]

Abby: Victoria, I am so sorry. I had no idea you were dealing with all of this. I wish I had known. But you are not alone. Just tell me how I can help.

Victoria: You already did that just by listening.

Abby: Wait. You're leaving? Just like that?

Victoria: [Sighs] No. First... thank you, Abby.

Abby: Um, o-okay.

Cane: Your, uh... your mom...and I have decided it's probably best if I leave for now.

Lily: I asked your dad to move out to give me some time to work through things. I hope you can understand that.

Mattie: Yeah, we -- we do, mom.

Charlie: Yeah. Whatever you need, mom. We're cool.

Mattie: Where are you going?

Cane: Uh, I spoke to Jill, and she said I can stay at the chancellor house. But I'm gonna come by and see you guys every day, okay, 'cause I -- I don't want you guys to, uh, forget how much I love you, okay? [Voice breaking] I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me. 'Cause I love you. I'll always love you.

Lily: [Sobs quietly] [Crying]

Charlie: It's okay.

Cane: [Sighs] [Sobs]

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

Chelsea: I'm worried.

Victoria: About what?

Chelsea: Nick.

Nick: So, what's your first step as an independent woman?

Nikki: I'm gonna spend the day with jack at the Abbott cabin.

Abby: Hilary broadcast it on her show.

Victor: With my blessing.
