Episode # 11229 ~ Phyllis schemes to get Victoria out of Billy's orbit; Mariah opens up to Devon; Nick puts Scott in his place.
Provided By SuzanneLauren: I went by your office to go over the sales numbers, and your assistant said you left early.
Phyllis: Off-site meeting.
Phyllis: Our old friend benjamin hochman.
Lauren: The department-store demolisher?
Phyllis: One and only.
Lauren: What on earth did he want from you?
Phyllis: Oh, no, no, no, no. No, the question should be, what did I want from him, which, by the way...I got.
Victoria: How did your meeting with suppliers go?
Billy: It was good. I held their hand, reassured them that all is well in the brash & sassy! World.
Billy: Yeah. They're concerned about a few things but nothing a few tweaks can't remedy. I've cleared the decks so we can get started.
Victoria: Oh, great. Well, I appreciate your enthusiasm, but it's gonna have to wait till tomorrow because i have plans.
Noah: You and that booking agent seemed like you hit it off.
Devon: Seemed pretty impressed with you, too.
Noah: Oh, yeah? You think?
Devon: Yeah, dude. He said he's going to introduce me to a bunch of artists that might fit the streaming service, and then when you and nick get your chain of live-music venues up and running, they have a bunch of places to play.
Noah: And then you and I can cross-promote our businesses, which is...
Devon: Productive all around.
Noah: You know, this whole festival -- it's been amazing. The tunes, the business connections -- I got to say, thank you for letting me and tessa tag along. I really appreciate it.
Devon: My pleasure, man. My pleasure. Hey, there's actually a band i want to check out that's coming on pretty soon.
Noah: Yeah, yeah. Let me just call tessa and see if the girls want to meet up with us.
Noah: Oh, shoot. I don't have my phone.
Devon: Where's it at? Did you leave it at the meeting?
Noah: No. You know, it's probably in my bag back at the room.
Devon: Okay. We have time. We can go swing by, pick up tessa and mariah, and have time to get back here and have some fun.
Sharon: Busted! Shouldn't you be at work?
Nick: Well, that's the thing about building a terrific team. You can take off whenever you want, go lounge by the pool and have some drinks. You want to join me?
Sharon: I'll... pull up another chair.
Nick: Who is that for -- your imaginary friend?
Sharon: [ Chuckles ] I'm meeting scott here.
Nick: Right. Okay. Well, if that's the case, maybe you'd be more comfortable at that table back there.
Scott: Can you hear anything? 'Cause, uh, I can'T.
Abby: I wasn't eavesdropping.
Scott: What were you doing?
Abby: I'm waiting to meet with my dad. And what about you? Are you just roaming the hallways, randomly scaring executives, or do you actually serve a purpose around here?
Scott: I was summoned to the big office, as well. Victor wanted to go over some numbers with newman digital media.
Abby: Hmm. Same. I'm updating him on my startup incubator project.
Scott: Why does he keep doing this -- scheduling our meetings at the same time? Our divisions have nothing in common with each other.
Abby: Well, that's fine by me. My numbers are great. You know what? Maybe he's trying to light a fire under you and that money-loser you're running for him.
Victor: Is he there now? Mm-hmm. You know what to do.
Nikki: Well, it's a good thing I'm not that hungry, because you managed to catch the world's smallest trout.
Jack: Do not blame the fisherman. Blame the equipment.
Jack: I'm serious. That old rod and reel held me back. If I'd have had that beauty that you gave me --
Nikki: You are right. It would have been perfection.
Jack: Excuse me. I just caught us dinner.
Nikki: Okay. Well, you enjoy the spoils of your hunt. I'm gonna stick with veggies.
Jack: Nonsense. We will both feast on my bounty.
Nikki: [ Laughs ]
[ Whistles ] Well, that's gonna be a neat trick, because I have seen guppies bigger than that.
Jack: Watch and learn, lady. Watch and learn.
Abby: I just saw the facilities manager in reception. Does that mean we'll be remodeling the executive suites?
Victor: We'll be starting very soon.
Abby: Great! Well, I will be ready to move in to my temporary office tomorrow, while this guy -- his office is a mess -- it'll take a week to wade through all the junk that he's managed to squirrel away in there.
Scott: Every bit of that junk represents a project, a story, something important. I feel like a clean, immaculate desk actually says you're not pulling your weight.
Victor: Oh, yeah?
Abby: [ Chuckles ]
Scott: Or it means you're the boss.
Abby: Or it means you're organized and efficient and not a pack rat.
Scott: Look, I'll be ready for the move. Don't worry.
Victor: All right. Please have a seat. So...who wants to go first? Abby?
Abby: Okay. Well, my startup incubator project is blowing up. Word is getting around fast. People are actually approaching me to become a part of it.
Abby: Yes. I just signed a second tenant that was referred to me by zack, and he has a very interesting gps platform. He'll be moving in soon. That with the tenant that i signed today -- that makes three. Our first project that we're gonna be rolling out is zack's dating app. We're in beta testing now.
Victor: He the fella who took you to the party?
Victor: And you believe in him?
Abby: I believe in everyone i take on as a partner. If I had my doubts, then I'd pass. I learned that from you.
Scott: And you also date all your business partners?
Abby: Beats dating one of the boss's ex-wives.
Victor: Well, abby, 2, you, 0. Time for you to catch up.
Sharon: You know, we could talk about you and noah expanding the underground. We could talk about noah's trip to the music festival in san francisco. Or how 'bout the coincidence of this young woman I've been trying to help at the crisis hotline turning up in your office? I mean, we could talk about a lot of interesting topics, but you chose to take another shot at the man that I'm dating. So, is this how it's gonna be from now on?
Nick: Look, I don't want to talk about him, either.
Sharon: Well, I think the only reason you don't like scott is because... he's close to victor.
Nick: Okay, look, the guy's got a chip on shoulder for me, too, and you know it, all right? Look, we don't have to be friends, all right? Not everybody has to like each other. Let's just let it go.
Sharon: Well, I can'T.
Nick: Why not?
Sharon: Because faith is going to be home from camp soon, and I'm gonna want to introduce them and explain to her that we're dating.
Nick: Well, what if when faith does come home, you guys aren't together anymore?
Sharon: Just...promise me that you won't badmouth scott to faith.
Nick: I would never do that.
Sharon: Okay. Well, I never thought that you would end up in a fistfight with victor at a charity event honoring your mother, but there it was, on "the hilary hour," for all the world to see.
Nick: Look, I have never said a bad word to faith about my dad. And I won't do it about scott, either.
Mariah: I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. I don't know where that... came from. I -- please don't be upset.
Tessa: I'm not, mariah.
Mariah: I've never done anything like that before. That doesn't -- it doesn't make any sense. I'm -- I'm -- I'm -- I'm so sorry. It was like an impulse. I've never done this before. I'm sorry.
Tessa: You've said that already.
Mariah: I did. I did say that. I did. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.
Tessa: You need to stop apologizing.
Billy: So, we can afford to take the night off, huh? What happened to weekends and late nights and all that fun stuff?
Victoria: You know what? If we keep burning our candle at both ends, we're gonna be too exhausted to do our job. Besides, my doctor told me that I need to rest.
Billy: Yeah? Your headache's gone?
Victoria: My mild concussion, which was just that -- a mild concussion with no lingering effects -- it's fine. A night off to recharge is gonna make me feel even better. It'll make you feel better, too.
Billy: [ Sighs ] I'd be a fool to argue with that one.
Billy: So, what are you gonna do? You gonna hang out with the kids?
Victoria: Uh, no. I'm just taking a little "me" time. Hannah's gonna watch the kids tonight.
Billy: What are these plans that you mentioned?
Benjamin: Knock, knock.
Victoria: Benjamin, hi.
Benjamin: I realize we were supposed to be meeting at the club, but my mother raised me to be a gentleman. I came to pick you up.
Victoria: Right. You want to get a little look-see at my lab.
Benjamin: Well, my mom also raised me to be pretty smart, too. Uh, I'll bet you're... billy abbott. Benjamin hochman. Yeah. Well, I guess victoria's my...date.
Lauren: Why is this a perfect plan?
Phyllis: Because if victoria is spending time with someone else, she'll be too busy to occupy all of billy's time.
Lauren: Mm. And that somebody else is benjamin hochman?
Phyllis: Yep. Why not?
Phyllis: Look, he's sleazy. I get it. But he's also handsome. He's charming. He's a pretty good businessman. I mean, that's the real reason i want them to hit it off.
Lauren: I cannot wait to hear the logic behind this.
Phyllis: Brash & sassy! Is in trouble. He's a venture capitalist.
Lauren: Mm. Polite term for that.
Phyllis: Okay. So, he has dismantled his share of companies and put up condos where they should be, but he has also snatched those operations from the jaws of death, okay? He's turned them profitable. He's gonna swoop in, resurrect brash & sassy!, And billy's gonna be a 9:00-to-5:00er again. Boom.
Lauren: Or he could be true to form and make it such a mess for those two to clean up, if victoria even has a company left.
Phyllis: Victoria's very smart. She's not gonna let him take advantage. I think it's good, as far as I'm concerned.
Lauren: Hmm. Could be a kink in your plan.
Lauren: Possible. Hochman is a giant flirt. Victoria's single. You know, what if he makes it a personal venture instead of just a professional one?
Phyllis: Then that's a win-win-win.
Victoria: This is not really a date -- it's business.
Benjamin: Well, in that case, I guess I'll cancel the violinist and the roses and pick up a copy of
the wall street journal to bring along.
Billy: That's funny. Why are you in our neighborhood?
Benjamin: Networking. My goal of this trip was to come and meet the most promising young C.E.O.S in this part of the state, to explore opportunities, build new connections. Now, lucky for me, when I called victoria, she was available.
[ Cellphone rings ] Excuse me. Hochman. Yeah.
Billy: Hey. This guy is all about a fire sale.
Victoria: You know him?
Billy: By reputation. He buys distressed companies and shutters the doors and repurposes the relisting.
Victoria: I know all about benjamin's business practices, okay? But he's incredibly well connected. I'm gonna make sure to mention that brash & sassy! Is on the cusp of a new era. We've got profit coming down the pike. He's gonna spread the word to his inner circle. Next thing you know, we're gonna be at the talk of the town again, in a good way.
Billy: A few days ago, you told me not to lie.
Victoria: Billy, I'm not lying. I'm just accentuating the positive.
Billy: This is a risk. You know that.
Victoria: Okay. It's a calculated risk. But trust me. I know what I'm doing.
Billy: [ Sighs ]
Benjamin: Ready to go?
Victoria: Yeah, I am -- more than ready. Good night.
Mariah: So, you're -- you're okay with what just happened?
Tessa: Mariah... it's like you said. It was an impulse. I mean, we're here in san fran at an amazing music festival, experiencing things and connecting. I think we both... got a little carried away.
Mariah: Yeah. Yeah. That's, um -- that's exactly what happened.
Tessa: We're both dating great people.
Mariah: We are.
Tessa: So... let's just put that kiss in a vault and keep it there. Okay?
Devon: Hey, you two!
Tessa: Hi! Well, you seem excited. Did the meeting go well?
Noah: Oh, the meeting was fantastic.
Tessa: Oh! Well, tell me what happened.
Noah: I will, but first...
[ Smooching ]
Lauren: Hey, do you want to order in from that new italian restaurant downtown? We could go over these sales numbers eating penne arrabbiata.
Phyllis: You know, I'm not that hungry.
Lauren: Hmm. Well, there's always room for wine. Do you have any red?
Phyllis: No. I don't have white, either.
Lauren: You don't have wine?
Phyllis: I know. I know. I've been meaning to restock.
Lauren: Okay. Straight to work, then.
Phyllis: Um...can we... do this tomorrow morning?
Lauren: Are you trying to get rid of me? Oh, my --
[ Door opens ]
Billy: Hi, lauren.
Lauren: Hey! Look who's home!
Phyllis: I'm a little surprised. I thought you were gonna be working all night.
Billy: Yeah. So did I.
Billy: I hope I'm not interrupting ladies' night.
Lauren: Not at all. I was just leaving.
Billy: You're not saying that for my benefit, are you?
Lauren: Not at all. I have plans. Nice to see you, bill.
Billy: You, too.
Lauren: You owe me a bottle of wine.
Phyllis: I will make it a case.
Billy: After our talk last night, I wanted to take a little free time.
Phyllis: Really? Did you make a pit stop?
Billy: Yes, I did. Supplies, my love.
Phyllis: What?! Margaritas?!
Billy: That's right. You want in?
Phyllis: [ Laughs ] Well, I was gonna get some work done, but, you know, considering... how much... trouble you went through, okay.
Billy: Good answer. I'll take that.
Scott: So, I've dispatched a reporter to cover the aftermath, and she's gonna be on the ground, interviewing witnesses, survivors. So... closer to home, I decided to write an exposé myself on sex trafficking in the midwest. It's a bad situation, and it's getting a lot worse, especially for the women who are roped into it -- find themselves trapped with no way out.
Victor: That sounds compelling.
Scott: It's the nightmare next door that almost no one knows about.
Abby: I applaud you for wanting to make the public aware of such a horrific story.
Scott: You do?
Abby: I do, but you shouldn't split your focus.
Scott: By all means, abby, why don't you tell me how to do my job?
Abby: I'd be happy to. Since you are in charge of the business end of things, I think you should assign another reporter to write the story, preferably a female. That way you can focus on making your division more profitable.
Scott: A lot of editors and publishers at successful magazines write stories on their own. This is a big story -- one that could get hashtag and newman digital media noticed in a crowded marketplace and improve my numbers. I can do this justice, victor, but you need to trust me the way you're trusting abby with her startups.
Victor: All right. Good presentation.
Scott: Thank you.
Victor: But I expect both of your divisions to show improved numbers at the end of the quarter, right
Scott: Let the games begin.
Victor: Now, if you don't mind, I need to make an important phone call.
Scott: Thank you, victor.
Victor: All right. Thank you for coming by.
Abby: Thanks, daddy.
Victor: Bye, sweetheart.
Jack: Okay, maybe not the biggest fish in the lake, but hopefully the tastiest.
Nikki: My goodness. First a frittata, and now this? You know, when we were married, you didn't step foot in the kitchen.
Jack: My culinary skills are a work in progress. Cross your fingers. Maybe the trout's better than my fancy omelet.
Nikki: [ Chuckles ] Well... let's see.
Nikki: That's not bad!
Nikki: But, you know, next time... maybe we could cook together. There is going to be a next time, isn't there?
Jack: I'm counting on it.
Nikki: Well, as fun and distracting as this is, perhaps it's time that we should finally talk about that elephant in the room.
Jack: Does that elephant have a moustache?
Noah: So, the guy said he'll come down to the underground on open-mic night and check out the scene.
Devon: That's right, and he was very impressed with you, tessa.
Tessa: What? How? I wasn't even there.
Noah: Devon showed him a video of one of your performances -- you know, my favorite one -- and you know what he said? He said that you should have had a deal signed a long time ago.
Noah: Yeah. So, maybe one day you will be headlining this festival yourself.
Devon: Absolutely. Until then, though, let's get out there. There's a lot of good music going to waste.
Noah: Yeah. Let me just grab my phone.
Devon: Hey, you know what, guys? I just want to take this time real quick to say I'm really happy that mariah asked you two to come along, 'cause I'm having a great time with you all.
Noah: Ah, you know, every once in a while, she has a pretty good idea.
Mariah: Gee. Thanks.
Noah: Okay. So, when we get back to the festival, we're splitting up, right? You two wanted to see that
[Laughing] Norwegian punk band. I'm sorry. And then we'll go catch the one you were telling me about on the main stage, right?
Mariah: You know, I, uh -- I think I changed my mind. I just feel like punk would mess with this chill vibe that I have going right now. And the festival's coming to an end, we're gonna be leaving soon, so, noah, why don't you take tessa? You guys go do your own thing, and devon and I will do ours.
Devon: Are you sure? I don't want you missing anybody you want to see.
Mariah: No, no. It really doesn't matter. I thought about it, and, uh, you know, we deserve some couple time. So, what do you say?
Noah: Sounds good to me.
Mariah: You okay with that?
Tessa: Yeah, most definitely.
Noah: Okay. Meet you guys back at the vip tent later?
Devon: Cool. Yeah.
Mariah: Let's do this. Yeah! [ Laughs ]
Devon: Okay. Ready?
"The young and the restless"
Jack: There are people, my sister included, who look at this, whatever this is, and wonder if I have an agenda with you -- if maybe the reason we're together is to somehow get under victor's skin.
Nikki: Well, excuse me. I take umbrage at that.
Jack: Do you?
Nikki: Who says you're the only one in that driver's seat? Like I'm not making my own decisions? Who knows what's going to happen? We're going to have to let time determine that. All I know is right now, I am doing exactly what I want. I want to be with you. I want to be here in this beautiful cabin with you. And I wanted it to be tonight, so that's good enough for me.
Jack: It's enough for me, too. Uh, full disclosure? I realize I am poking the tiger -- not on purpose, but there are bound to be repercussions, for which I take full responsibility. If victor has any issues, that's my problem, not yours. If you find this to be too messy or too much stress, I can back off.
Nikki: And I just said you're not the only one in that driver's seat. Open wide.
Sharon: So, scott's putting together a series of articles covering the type of crime ring that poor crystal got involved in.
Nick: That's a good idea. It could help these other girls learn what to look for with these predators and steer clear of them.
Sharon: I hope so.
Scott: Hey. Sorry I'm late.
Sharon: Oh, hey.
Scott: Victor wanted an update with hashtag.
Nick: Oh, and I bet you told him exactly what he wanted to hear, right?
Sharon: Can we please not do this?
Scott: You know, I'm not victor's yes man.
Nick: You know, I don't get it. You're supposed to be this razor-sharp reporter, and you can't seem to figure out who my dad really is.
Scott: Well, my eyes are wide open. Maybe you're the one who needs a new perspective on things.
Nick: I bet you're just dying to give it to me, right? So, go ahead. School me, scotty.
Scott: [ Sighs ] Look, my father died when I was young. I don't remember him at all -- not his face, his voice, nothing. I'd give anything to take that back -- go back in time and get that -- but I can'T. So, here you are, willing to throw away your whole relationship with victor.
Nick: I've known my dad my entire life. You've known him, what, a couple months? The last thing I need to hear is a lecture from you about my dad.
Phyllis: How can I help?
Billy: Oh, no, no, no. You kick back and relax. This is all about me apologizing for my behavior lately.
Phyllis: Ohh. You don't need to do that.
Billy: I want to. I need to. I've been obsessing about work lately, and you were right to call me out on it. I get the jackass of the week award for even implying that brash & sassy! Or victoria are more important than you, the most beautiful woman in my life, the most important woman in my life.
Phyllis: Cheers to that.
Billy: Mm. So, you wouldn't guess in a million years why I'm actually not at work. Victoria has dinner with one of the biggest sharks in the corporate world. Told her it was a bad idea, and, of course, she said she knew what she was doing.
Phyllis: Margaritas are amazing.
Billy: Benjamin hochman. You know the guy, right?
Phyllis: Sure. Yeah, I know who he is.
Victoria: Oh, that's my brother nicholas over there!
Benjamin: Oh. We've never met. You'll have to introduce me... some other time. I'm more interested in getting better acquainted with you.
Victoria: Well, to know my company is to know me.
Benjamin: Oh. Then, by all means, tell me about brash & sassy!
Victoria: Well, dare, our new men's body spray, is flying off the shelves, and part of the excitement is due to a lucrative tie-in deal that we forged with professional hockey.
Victoria: Yes. It's a big get for our company. And I think it's one of the big reasons why our sales are up across the board. Our other products are on an uptick, as well.
Benjamin: So, your company's doing exceptional financially?
Victoria: Yes. Never better. And as sole owner, I am calling all the shots. I've got no partners breathing down my neck or investors clamoring for short-term profits as opposed to long-term successes.
Benjamin: Was that speech for my benefit?
Victoria: I'm just trying to be up front with you. That's all.
Benjamin: [ Chuckles ] While I have been that investor that you described -- mr. Bottom line -- I can be flexible, depending on the situation.
Victoria: AH. Interesting. That's not what I've heard.
Benjamin: I'm aware of the reputation that I have to be results-oriented to the exclusion of everything else. And it's an incomplete assessment, victoria, not to mention unfair.
Benjamin: It's all about the people that I work with. It begins and ends there -- with personal relationships that you build, nurture, to mutual benefit.
Victoria: I am actually all about personal relationships. In fact, some of the best deals that I've ever made have been with people that I admire.
Benjamin: Do you admire me?
Victoria: I hardly know you.
Benjamin: Then let's take a sledgehammer into all these pesky barriers that we all put up in social situations -- get real with each other.
Victoria: Or we could just continue talking about my company.
Benjamin: I can see that you're hesitant, so I'll start. I'm a lifelong resident of chicago, divorced. I enjoy sailing, tennis, golf. If it's athletic, I've done it. Won a trophy. See? It's not hard to share. Your turn.
Victoria: Why does it sound like we're filling out an online dating profile?
Benjamin: [ Chuckling ] Scoff all you want, but those apps have it figured out.
Victoria: Oh, really? So, how many services have you signed up for?
Benjamin: I'm a people person, remember? I prefer meeting face to face, like now. So?
Victoria: [ Sighs ] Okay. I am a lifelong resident of wisconsin, also divorced. You met one of my exes back at the office -- billy abbott. But I am also married -- to my work.
Benjamin: [ Chuckles ] Yes. Aren't we all?
Victoria: As far as hobbies go, I like horseback riding and painting, and I actually have a few medals for various equestrian events myself.
Victoria: Yes, but I haven't had time for either one of those for quite a while.
Benjamin: And who is victoria newman... in there?
Victoria: Well, I'm not a game-player. What you see is what you get.
Benjamin: Can I say I like what I see?
Victoria: As long as I can say it's incredibly amusing watching you being so transparent right now.
Benjamin: [ Chuckles ] Coming off a little strong, huh?
Victoria: Well, you know, it does make me wonder if you're trying to get me to drop my guard so I'll do something stupid, something that I'll regret later.
Benjamin: Such as?
Victoria: Such as selling you a piece of my company or bringing you on as a consultant when I don't want or need one.
Benjamin: Hey, admit it. I have a certain style. You either like it or you don'T. But you can rest assured, victoria, I'm not trying to sucker you. My motive here is just to get to know you, and I meant what i said. I do like what I see.
[ Distorted voice ] Having said all that and considering our individual track records, I think a joint venture could be potentially lucrative for both of us. I think it would be a huge success. What are your thoughts?
Victoria: Are we gonna get out of here or what?
Benjamin: You mean...?
Victoria: I mean are you hungry for food? Because I'm not. Why don't we get the check?
Nick: There you go, bud. I tell you what -- you two can stick around and talk about my dad all you want. I'm out of here.
Sharon: Nick, wait!
Scott: I'm sorry. I shouldn't have taken the bait.
Sharon: It's not your fault. When it comes to victor, these days, nick is just not thinking straight.
Nick: Hey! Vick! Wait up!
Excuse me. Uh, mr. Newman, apologies, but there's a problem with your bill.
Yeah. Your name isn't listed on that membership account.
Nick: Look, I've been a member here for years, all right? I signed our name. It's the newman family account. I used the right account number. Okay. Uh, when did my dad call?
Devon: Too bad the, uh, amp blew, right? The band sounded great.
Mariah: Yeah. Maybe we can catch their show another time, maybe at the underground.
Devon: Like their music?
Mariah: Are you surprised?
Devon: A little more acoustic than you were expecting.
Mariah: Well, being with you has broadened my horizons.
Devon: You trying to get on my good side? 'Cause you're already there, you know. So, what do you want to do now?
Mariah: Well, maybe we should spend some time here before we go meet tessa and noah.
Devon: Okay. We can text them and see where they're at and meet up with them, too.
Mariah: You know what? I think they need some alone time, and so do we.
Devon: Dude. Keep talkin'.
Mariah: Being here with you in one of the most exciting cities in the world -- it just doesn't get any better.
Nick: Hey. Uh, can I borrow some money? Looks like dad cut me off from the family account here, so -- and I don't have my wallet.
Sharon: I am so sorry this is happening.
Nick: That's all right. He's just trying to embarrass me.
Sharon: You know what? I'm gonna get some cash out of my locker so you can pay for your check.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Scott: Victor, hello. What can I do for you?
Victor: Listen, the updated budget for your division wasn't in the report you left.
Scott: Uh, you know, I bet i left it on my desk. I can get my assistant to bring it to you tomorrow.
Victor: All right. Please do so.
Scott: Oh, hey, hey, before you go, uh... I'm at the club, and, uh, apparently, there's an issue with nick's membership.
Victor: Really? What kind of issue?
Scott: It was you, wasn't it? You had his name taken off the account. That was the important project you had to take care of when you dismissed abby and me. You were putting this in motion.
Victor: Smart boy.
Scott: You'll be pleased to know it worked. Nick had to borrow money from sharon to cover his check.
Victor: Really? Well, I'll be damned.
Nikki: It meant a lot to me that you were willing to talk about victor.
Jack: Oh, you don't have to thank me. I love talking about the black knight. He's one of my go-to conversation starters.
Nikki: [ Chuckles ] Ah, I just thought it was a necessary evil. Now that we got that out of the way, we can just erase him from our minds, banish him from our thoughts.
Jack: Music to my ears. Hey, listen -- I'm gonna make you a promise. Any time you ask me a question, regardless the topic, I'm gonna give you an honest answer.
Nikki: Okay. Let's put that to the test.
Jack: All right. Ask away.
Nikki: This thing that we have...
Nikki: ...That we have yet to define -- it's easy when we're up here alone in the quiet, an idyllic place. But how do you think that would go when we're out in the city with the people? Do you think that... "it" can survive in the real world?
Jack: Only one way to find out.
Noah: Hey, let's go inside and see if devon and mariah are here.
This area's restricted. You need all-access passes.
Tessa: Well, just show him our credentials, noah. Hey. I gave them to him for safekeeping.
Noah: They're -- I think they fell off when we were in the mosh pit.
Tessa: Uh, well, he was here a couple of hours ago with devon hamilton.
Tessa: Check the list.
Uh, yeah. No list. Only passes.
Tessa: Okay. You sound like a broken record. We have them, but they're caked in mud at the bottom of the pit by stage 2. Just give us a break, man.
Mmm. Not today.
Noah: Really? You know, it's fine. It's fine.
Tessa: No. No, it's not. We have every right to be here. Just check it, mr. Pec-tacular. This is noah newman, as in victor newman's grandson. Do you know the name, or is using a browser above your pay grade? Look... you don't want to piss this guy off by not letting us in. I mean, one phone call and he could turn your life into a new version of hell. You could lose your job... be evicted.
[ Clears throat ] All right. I'll make an exception, but just this one time.
Tessa: Oh, really? Thank you! What's wrong?
Noah: It's just I've never really used the whole "do you know who I am?" Thing. It's not --
Tessa: Why? What's the fun of being a newman and related to a billionaire if we don't get the occasional perk from it?
Noah: Oh. You're funny girl.
Noah: That's what it is.
Tessa: I try.
Noah: That's cute.
Tessa: [ Chuckles ]
Mariah: This amazing trip to the coast with great music and wonderful food and every luxury I could ever imagine makes me think that I must have done something really, really right in my past life to deserve such an amazing guy like you.
Devon: I love that you're having such a good time. I'm glad that we came.
Mariah: Yeah, but it's more than just a good time, and i want you to know that. I know that I'm not the type to get all mushy and sentimental, and maybe this is too soon... but I'm feeling it, and I'm gonna say it out loud, so here goes nothing. I love you, devon.
Billy: This is the life.
Phyllis: [ Laughs ] I agree 100%.
Billy: Want more?
Phyllis: Yes, please.
Billy: [ Groans ] Ahh.
[ Cellphone chimes ] Whoa.
Phyllis: What is it?
Billy: One of our west coast competitors is trying to acquire a company that we had our eye on. I have to tell victoria real quick.
[ Chuckles ] Okay. All right. You're right. My bad. I made a promise that tonight is all about us. Get rid of that.
Victoria: I hope there's more where that came from.
Benjamin: Wine will flow all night long if you want. Ah. People have told me that I come off a little strong. I'm glad to see that you aren't turned off by me.
Victoria: Blah, blah, blah. Talk is cheap, hochman. When are you gonna kiss me?
Benjamin: Uh... right about... now.
Next on "the young and the restless"...
Cane: It's inevitable that we run in to each other around here, so you might as well hear this from me.
Billy: I was trying to get ahold of victoria, but she's getting a jump-start on the day.
Hilary: She spent the night with benjamin hochman.
