Dina: Good morning. I got your text, jack. Oh, I hope I'm not too late, but I was waylaid en route.
Jack: By what?
Dina: Well, you two should have warned me about that rather charming young man -- our competition downstairs.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Victoria: [ Sighing ] Oh, my god.
Neil: Vicki, just calm down.
Victoria: I'm so angry right now. I just want to --
Neil: No, it's -- it's gonna be okay.
Victoria: I want to throw something.
Neil: No! No, don't -- no. Please, please. Can I have the box? Okay.
Victoria: [ Sighs ]
Neil: Whatever this is about, please don't take it out on our brand-new office. Plus I happen to really like this box.
Victoria: I'm sorry. I apologize.
Neil: It's okay. Hey, come here.
Victoria: [ Sighs ]
Neil: All right, we're gonna take a nice, deep breath and regroup.
[ Exhales deeply ]
Victoria: [ Inhales deeply ]
Neil: There we go. Good. Now, that guy upstairs, is that what this is all about? I mean, why were you two arguing?
Victoria: I trusted someone that I shouldn't have. People warned me, but I didn't listen, and, god, I wish I would have.
Neil: I understand. We've all been there.
Victoria: No, not me. Not like this. I mean, I am not on top of my game right now, neil, and I'm afraid -- I'm really afraid it's getting worse.
Jordan: Billy said that they gave you the news about scaling back on the dare campaign.
Lily: Yeah. And my paychecks along with it.
Jordan: You okay?
Lily: I mean, I'm disappointed.
Jordan: You know, billy and victoria -- they're still crazy about you. It's not personal. It's just business.
Lily: I know. I wish it were personal, though, 'cause then I could fix it easily with, you know, a fruit basket or a spa certificate.
Jordan: I've got a better idea. Come look for work with me in new york.
Mariah: Okay, well, I guess we will soon find out the winner of the "how late will hilary be?" Pool.
[ Laughter ] As co-host, I've made myself ineligible. Just saying. But I did decide to put in an extra 20 bucks for the cash prize winner!
[ Laughter ] Okay, guys, um, I did my best, but I am all out of time-wasting activities, so we should probably get this production meeting for "the hilary hour" started... without hilary, who has decided to ignore all of my texts and voicemails. So, item one, on the taping schedule, we're gonna be going on location for the shoot.
Hilary: Perfect! Everyone is here for the production meeting. Okay, here's the plan, people. We are tossing out today's entire show.
Mariah: What? Why?
Hilary: Because I have exclusive breaking news, and "the hilary hour" gets the exclusive.
Jack: You're right, mother. We should have told you which floors and which siblings to steer clear of.
Ashley: Okay, I think that dina can handle a little friendly chitchat with our brother.
Jack: And I think billy had more in mind than a little chitchat, like maybe whining about his evil big brother?
Dina: Oh, well, I don't think he said that. After all, he, uh, did mention a substantial hike in brash & sassy's rent.
Jack: I brought to market value a space that includes a state-of-the-art research lab. If they don't like it, they can move on. Maybe they can set up their operation in jill's garage.
Dina: Oh, for god sakes. Don't you think that's a rather crass way to talk about your own brother?
Jack: Mother, very recently, billy changed all the rules on how one treats one's brother.
Ashley: Let's not go there, okay? We've got other pressing matters to attend to.
Dina: Right you are, dear. And I certainly don't mean to stir up trouble.
Ashley: No. No problem. Um, dina, jack said that you finished the first half of the parker deal report. And I was wondering if you had a chance to look at it, jack?
Jack: Indeed I did. Before we get into that, though, I would like to --
Dina: Now, let me stop you right there, because I know exactly what you're about to say.
Jack: You do?
Dina: I do. Back at the hotel, I looked over all my work, and I was mortified to learn that I had made an error in calculation from the top that affected everything after that. I must say, I felt very foolish, so I stayed up late and I went over and fixed every one of those figures before I went to sleep. I want you to delete the one before and use this. And now I'm off to the next phase of my analysis. Unless, of course, I'm already fired.
Billy: That was quite the welcome home. No need to wait till closing time.
Phyllis: Were you a good boy when I was on the fenmore's trip?
Billy: Positively angelic. Too bad jack wasn't, though.
Phyllis: What's he done now?
Billy: Dropped a 25% rent increase on our heads in the hope to get us out of the building.
Phyllis: Could that force you to move?
Billy: [ Sighs ] You didn't hear this from me.
Phyllis: Of course not.
Billy: Brash & sassy's in a tougher position than when you left. Victoria's trying to strike up a deal with hochman to get us a bridge loan.
Phyllis: Those two are on the fast track. Maybe that date they had the other night was a lot more than just dinner.
Billy: I don't know. I just don't think she has any option. It's either him or her father.
Phyllis: She made the right choice. Satan himself is better than victor.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Phyllis: Lauren wants to hear about my trip in person.
Billy: Don't keep her waiting. One of us should keep our job.
Neil: You know what I think? I think you're, uh, I think you're being a little too hard on yourself.
Victoria: I should have seen through him in a second. Not only did I date the guy, i narrowly escaped making a disastrous business deal with him.
Neil: Well, that means you, uh, got away.
Victoria: Unfortunately, this doesn't just affect me. Between us... brash & sassy's in a lot of trouble right now.
Neil: What kind of trouble are we talking about?
Victoria: The kind of trouble that shuts down companies. Our sales figures are down. We have no cash coming in. We don't have the budget for r&d or the marketing and promotion that we should be doing. And on top of that, we're short a senior executive, and I don't have the funds to hire a new one because of the crunch that we're under.
Neil: Lily told me how cane's mistakes have impacted the company.
Victoria: Yes, I know, but I'm the one that's got to turn this arounD. And to do that quickly, I need a short-term bridge loan.
Neil: Yeah, that's what i would do. But you can't tell me that hochman is your only option.
Victoria: Yes, I can, because it's true. The bank turned me down flat, which left me the option of hochman or my dad. When my dad offered me the money, let's just say that i didn't turn him down very gracefully.
Neil: You two have a very complicated relationship.
Victoria: Yes, that's a diplomatic understatement.
Neil: Well, it's my specialty.
Victoria: Maybe you can help me come up with a crow-eating speech that I will deliver before I tell my father that I've changed my mind.
Neil: [ Chuckles ] Lucky for you, I think there's one option that you haven't explored yet.
Mattie: The way my dad acted the other night when he found you at the house with me, totally embarrassing.
Reed: Really, it's -- it's okay.
Mattie: You're sweet, but it's so not.
Reed: How did it get after i left?
Mattie: Things got so ugly. My dad totally lost it, and i can't even believe the things i said to him.
Reed: I'm sorry. I really should have tried to reason with him.
Mattie: No, no, no. You did the right thing by getting out of there. No one can talk to him when he's like this. Ever since my mom kicked him out, he's been completely irrational.
Reed: How does your mom feel about us hanging out?
Mattie: Well, she didn't go ballistic or anything, but she thinks we should take things slow.
Reed: It's pretty much what my mom said. She just doesn't want things to be complicated. I just wish our parents would handle their issues on their own terms and let us do our own thing, you know?
Mattie: I know. I've just never seen my dad act this way before. Now I have no idea what he could do next.
Cane: [ Sighs ]
Mattie: You need to get out of here quick.
Mattie: It's -- it's my dad. Please. It'll be so much worse if he sees us together.
Reed: Okay, um, good luck. And I'll -- I'll be close if you need me.
Cane: [ Sighs ] Hey.
Cane: Hey. Hey, you have a minute?
Mattie: Grandpa's expecting me downstairs.
Cane: It won't take long, all right? Look... I just want to apologize to you. I overreacted the other day. You know, it's the first time I've seen you kissing a boy, and it's -- it's kind of tough on a father. I'm just kind of trying to adjust to the fact that you're growing into a young woman.
Mattie: And me dating reed, are you adjusting to that, too?
Cane: Well, he's victoria's son, and, you know, she fired me.
Mattie: Because of what you did! You didn't give her any choice!
Cane: Yes. Yes, this is true. But you don't know much about her, and I don't think you know much about reed, either.
Mattie: Well, that's not true.
Cane: And ever since he's come back to town, victoria's stressing he's gonna cause trouble, right, 'cause he's bad news.
Mattie: Whatever reed might have done, is it worse than what you did?
Cane: I'm just trying to protect you, sweetheart. That's all I'm trying to do.
Mattie: Then you shouldn't have wrecked our family.
Cane: Okay. Well, um... I just wanted to say I'm sorry. Okay. I'll see you later.
[ Sighs ]
Reed: Are you okay? What happened?
Mattie: He gave me some stupid reason I'm not supposed to like yoU. You're a trouble-making delinquent who drove your mom crazy because you don't know how to behave. It's all so lame.
Reed: It's kind of true.
Jordan: New york is the place to be when it comes to modeling and photography jobs. Even better, I still have connections there to help both of us.
Lily: Yeah, but I don't have any recent experience outside of modeling for brash & sassy.
Jordan: That's good enough for a bunch of the modeling agencies that I'm tight with. One of them's gonna snap you up for sure.
Lily: [ Sighs ] I don't know. I mean, that sounds great, but i have kids in high school. I can't just leave, you know. I have to be realistic.
Jordan: I know, I know. I figured. Had to ask, though.
Lily: You're gonna be moving to new york? That's so sad. We just reconnected. I'm gonna miss you.
Jordan: Right back at you. But don't worry about it, though. I'm not leaving tomorrow. Gc's still got a lot going for it.
Lily: Including hilary? I mean, if you relocate, what's gonna happen to the two of you?
Hilary: Make sure this is cued up to roll in at the point that we discussed. And no previews.
Mariah: What is that?
Hilary: Oh, it's -- it's a flash drive. It's this teeny, tiny, little, magical box filled with lots and lots of tv.
Mariah: And what poisonous, nasty surprise does our very own wicked witch have in her teeny, tiny, magical box?
Hilary: No, no, no. I want a purely authentic reaction on camera.
Mariah: Hilary, if you're worried that I'm not going to be disgusted by whatever it is you've got on there, trust me, i will be.
Hilary: Hey, don't worry. It's not about your mother for a change or your oh-so-special relationship with devon.
Mariah: Why would I worry about devon and me? There's nothing lurid going on in our relationship that would appeal to the gossip hounds that you're trying to attract.
Hilary: I didn't think there was, either. Until now.
Ashley: No, we would never fire you. Don't be silly.
Jack: I would never terminate my own mother on her second day.
Ashley: That's very bad karma.
[ Laughter ]
Dina: Agreed. But a voicemail over the weekend would be a lot cleaner, wouldn't it?
Jack: [ Chuckles ] Well, we are both very impressed that you found your mistake and corrected it so quickly.
Dina: Well, you know, it wasn't so long ago that I could buy and sell companies bigger than parker over lunch.
[ Chuckles ] So, if we're done, I'll get to it. And later we'll get to the trip to the lake with your darling ravi.
[ Chuckles ]
A tout à l'heure, mes enfants.
Jack: Never said a word.
Ashley: Well, keep it that way. I'm just so grateful that we don't have to worry about dina, at least not in that capacity.
Jack: Yeah, just our brother sucking up to her.
Ashley: Would you stop? It was a very casual encounter. What did you want her to do? Claw his eyes out?
Jack: He's still jill's son. You know how mother feels about her.
Ashley: Do I have to remind you that billy actually has two parents, one of whom was our father? Try to remember that the next time you stick brash & sassy with an exorbitant rent hike.
Jack: It was a sound business decision, nothing more.
Ashley: Save it, jack. I think I'm the only one here in the room besides you. These chess moves of yours are a massive waste of time. Victoria has an iron grip on brash & sassy. She and billy aren't going anywhere.
Jack: I'm not so sure about that.
Victoria: I know that hamilton-winters is on the hunt for acquisitions, which this wouldn't be.
Neil: Totally understood.
Victoria: You're okay with a bridge loan?
Neil: Not just to anyone. One of the perks of having a family business is being able to make investments in projects that you deem worthy. Brash & sassy, meaning you. Now, that's about as worthy as it gets.
Victoria: Neil, I really don't know how to show my appreciation. Except to remind you that your family's a part of the company, and I hope that won't complicate things.
Neil: Honestly, I think it's a win for everyone, including lily.
Neil: Ever since you defunded the dare campaign, lily has been very anxious about supporting the family. With this loan that we're giving you, I think it's very possible that you can restart this campaign.
Victoria: We would be thrilled. You know the line is a priority for us, and lily is an invaluable part of it.
Neil: I am so glad you agree.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ]
Neil: So, uh, why don't we get down to terms?
Mattie: I know my dad's exaggerating. I'm sure you're not bad news like he claims.
Reed: Honestly... when I first got here, my mom had a lot of rules, and she was really strict, and I broke a lot of them and ended up grounded a lot.
[ Chuckles ] When I showed up on her doorstep, it was by police escort.
Reed: Everything's better now. It was -- it's taken care of.
Mattie: I'm sure my dad doesn't care either way. He's made up his mind that you're, like, the worst thing that's ever happened to me.
Mattie: Yeah, I'm pretty sure he's dead set against us seeing each other.
Reed: How do you feel about -- about me? Have you -- have you changed your mind? I mean, is this thing that we've got too much of a hassle for you?
Mattie: Oh, no. Um, I'm interning for my grandfather today, and I was supposed to be there like five minutes ago. We'll talk later, okay?
Phyllis: Things are moving right along.
Benjamin: What gave you that impression?
Phyllis: Victoria I heard was about to sign a loan agreement, so obviously you were making great strides while I was away.
Benjamin: I thought so. Victoria didn'T. Deal's off.
Phyllis: And why is that?
Benjamin: It's unimportant.
Phyllis: Not to me. If my role in this endeavor were ever to be exposed...
Benjamin: She has no idea of how you and jack are involved. It went belly up because she found out that I was thinking of hiring cane ashby.
Phyllis: You put victoria's least favorite person on the planet in the mix?
Benjamin: Takes a village. But sadly our budding alliance with you and jack is deader than the flowers that he sent for me.
Phyllis: This makes me so sad, because I thought that you and victoria had very good chemistry.
Benjamin: Oh, we did. I'm gonna miss her for reasons quite apart from the company.
Phyllis: Sounds like she made a strong impact.
Benjamin: [ Sighs ] Take it from me. Behind closed doors, she is a raging spitfire.
Phyllis: Victoria newman?
Benjamin: Hmm. I take it you have never spent a night tangled in the sheets with her.
Phyllis: How perceptive of you.
Benjamin: The type-a ice-princess thing is a carefully crafted facade. Underneath? Whoo! She's a wild woman ready to get brash and trashy.
Phyllis: That's way too much information, benjamin.
Neil: Hey! Hot off the printer.
Victoria: Got to tell you, that was the easiest, most pleasant negotiation I have ever been at, ever.
Neil: Don't let that get out. I am trying to set an iron-fist example for devon.
Victoria: I will not breathe a word about what a wonderful and generous and amazing friend you are. And you are such a life saver, neil. I'm never gonna forget this.
Neil: Thank you for saying that.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ]
Neil: You know I love helping out my friends.
Victoria: You know, i remember a time when we were more than just friends.
Neil: Yeah, I hadn't thought about that in years.
Victoria: Well, it does seem like a lifetime ago.
Neil: Yeah, it does.
Victoria: You know, I wonder if I appreciated you as much as I should have. I don't think I did.
Neil: Don't be so hard on yourself.
Mattie: Reporting for duty, boss!
Neil: Ah, look!
Mattie: Oh, um, sorry.
Neil: You know, if everyone was as excited about work as you are, the world would be a beautiful place.
Victoria: It would be phenomenal. Hi, mattie.
Mattie: How are you, miss newman?
Victoria: I'm doing very well. How are you?
Neil: She's interning with us for the summer.
Victoria: Oh, that's so cool. I didn't know about that. I'm sure you're doing an amazing job.
Mattie: Thank you.
Victoria: I'm really sorry about what's happened between our two families. Neil, thank you so much.
Neil: Yeah, sure.
Victoria: You are wonderful.
Neil: Make sure you got both -- you got both copies?
Victoria: Yeah, I have -- here. Okay. Thanks a lot, really. I'll talk to you soon.
Jordan: Hmm. Let's not talk about hilary and me as a unit, 'cause I'll be damned if I know what's going on with her.
Lily: Well, I know she just got back from new york shooting her big commercial, the one that she stole from me. But I guess the plus side to you moving would be that you could possibly convince her to go with you.
Jordan: Don't hold your breath on that.
Lily: Why? 'Cause hilary wouldn't want to go or you don't want her to?
Jordan: Let's just say that we've hit a few speed bumps.
Jordan: Well, she's jealous, for one.
Lily: Of what?
Jordan: What do you think? Or shall I say whom?
"The young and the restless"
Phyllis: Good. You're alone.
Jack: I didn't know you were back from your fenmore's sightseeing tour.
Phyllis: Fact finding. And I'll fill you in on fenmore's later. Let's discuss what's really important.
Jack: Oh, you mean our new supercouple? Maybe you haven't heard. As we speak, she is signing the papers for a bridge loan from the bank of hochman.
Phyllis: You're late to the party, jack. That deal is dead.
Jack: Wait, ben said it was a fait accompli.
Phyllis: Yeah, until victoria discovered his under-the-table agreement with cane.
Jack: And now she's thumbing her nose at his mountain of money. Oh, wonderful. Okay. We have to adjust our plan. Any ideas?
Phyllis: I'm not so sure if you and I have a plan. You knew that cane was being pulled into this. You didn't even act surprised when I mentioned it just now.
Phyllis: So, you and cane share the same goal. You both are dying to bring billy down. Consider me off the team.
Billy: So I assume the deal with hochman went well?
Victoria: Oh, you could say that, actually.
Billy: Okay. He's gonna loan you the money?
Victoria: Well, he was about to when I discovered his secret side deal with cane.
Billy: Are you serious?
Victoria: Is it really any surprise that the man lives up to his sleazy reputation?
Billy: So, what? Cane was just gonna sell our secrets to make some quick cash?
Victoria: And benjamin was more than happy to pay for it as he slowly sucked the life out of our company.
Billy: My god, just when i think cane can't sink any lower.
Victoria: They're a match made in hell.
Billy: Look, I'm really sorry that didn't work out with hochman. You need to know that he's nowhere near your league.
Victoria: I know. Thanks. If I never spend another minute thinking about that man, it would be too soon. I'm just relieved that he didn't worm his way into our company.
Billy: Yeah, me, too. But that doesn't fix the cash-flow problem.
Victoria: No, it's fixed.
Billy: What do you mean? How? When?
Victoria: Neil. He gave me the funding that we need to get over the hump.
Billy: That's fantastic. I mean, I thought we were gonna have to get this thing fixed with a serious string attached.
Victoria: No, no strings attached. I mean, just one small one, but it's not a problem. Neil just wants to keep lily employed.
Lily: Typical hilary. She has an irrational envy of anything I do or have, including my friendship with you, which started way before she got here.
Jordan: [ Sighs ] You can't call it a one-way feud, though. All I'm saying is you give as good as you get.
Lily: Well, I will take that as a compliment. I'm sure you'd feel the same way if someone messed with your family the way that she's messed with mine.
Jordan: You're right about that.
Lily: That's why I hated that you were falling for her the way that my dad and devon did. I didn't want to see her trash your life the way that she trashed theirs.
Jordan: I'm just being real. Neil and devon seem pretty together.
Lily: Yeah, well, in spite of hilary, they're lucky they got out when they did. But I will never trust that witch, and I sure as hell will never like her.
Mariah: Sorry to disappoint, hilary, but there is nothing festering under the surface between devon and me. If you are still unconvinced, you can have paul williams give me a polygraph live on air.
Hilary: Relax, all right? Stop worrying. Nobody cares about your comic-book romance. Besides, i have ratings gold all cued up, and I am ready to drop it like it's hot, hot, hot, hot.
Mariah: Okay, as long as it doesn't get us into another lawsuit. Are you sure the scoop is legitimate?
Hilary: I taped it myself.
Mariah: How resourceful of you.
Hilary: Okay, look, it is showtime.
Mariah: Greetings, genoa city. I am --
Hilary: Hello, world. I am hilary curtis. That's mariah copeland, and this is "the hilary hour." We are preempting our regular features to bring you late-breaking, exclusive news.
Mariah: So exclusive, in fact, that hilary is the only one who knows what it is.
Hilary: I couldn't bear to spoil the surprise, so my staff is gonna be hit with this bombshell exactly when you are, audience.
Mariah: I hope it's soon, because I can't take much more of this. The suspense, I mean.
Dina: Oh, ashley, have you got a minute, dear?
Ashley: Sure. Is this about the parker deal?
Dina: Oh, no, nothing like that.
Dina: It just struck me that you working here with me is a gift that I had given up hope of ever getting.
Ashley: Oh. It is something, isn't it? And that it's happening here at jabot.
Dina: I'm so proud of you and jack, and I know john would be, too. I mean, you've kept his dream alive and nurtured it into something quite remarkable.
Ashley: Thank you. That's very sweet of you to say.
Dina: John had it right. Family is the most important thing. So I was really worried about billy and jack. I mean, do you think there's a chance that they could, uh, get past this rift? I know billy would love it, and so would I.
Ashley: So would I. So would traci. But now that billy and phyllis are living together, I think there's less of a chance than ever.
Dina: Oh, boy. Well, I've only met the woman a few times, and believe me, i don't care much for her.
Ashley: Believe me, she gets that a lot.
Dina: I know john would hate it that his two sons were fighting over someone like that.
Ashley: I agree. I've told jack the same thing. I'm just not sure what we can do at this point.
Dina: Well, just call me a cockeyed optimist, because I'm not giving up that easily.
Ashley: I like to hear that.
Dina: Well, anything's possible, my dear. Just look at the two of us.
[ Guitar strumming ]
Reed: Oh, hey.
Mattie: I was hoping you'd still be up here.
Reed: Yeah, um, didn't really know what to do or where to go with the way we left things.
Mattie: I know. I'm sorry. But you'll never guess who was at hamilton-winters when i showed up.
Reed: Hopefully not your dad.
Mattie: Your mom.
Reed: What? Why was she there?
Mattie: My grandpa didn't say, but she was super nice to me. She even apologized for what's happened between our families.
Reed: That's amazing. I mean, at least a slight step in the right direction.
Mattie: Yeah. Maybe. Although I did get the weird feeling that there might be more going on than you or I know about.
Reed: I-I really don't want to ask you, but...do you not want us to hang out anymore?
Mattie: It's not fair. Our parents' mess shouldn't mean that we can't be friends.
Reed: You literally took the words right out of the lyrics that I was messing around with.
Mattie: [ Chuckles ]
Reed: If you think that they're still keeping stuff from us, then we could always follow in their lead.
Mattie: I see what you're saying. It's just I've never kept secrets from my mom...or my dad.
Reed: [ Sighs ] I-I mean, I get it. I get that. And it's one of the great things about you -- your honesty. I was just kind of throwing it out.
Mattie: You know what? If they can hide things, so can I.
Reed: [ Chuckles ]
[ Footsteps approach ]
Benjamin: White russian, please. Make it a double.
Cane: Uh, well, forgive me if I stick to lemonade 'cause i want my head as clear as possible for when we discuss our upcoming business project.
Benjamin: Yeah, we need to talk about that. You also may want to revise that drink order.
[ Sighs ]
Hilary: It is genoa city royalty on the rocks again. That's right. The mega-rich and the super-troubled newmans are once more in the news.
Mariah: The newmans? That's today's scoop?
Hilary: Well, the first time it was victor punching wayward son nick, but this time... it's a newman that would be voted least likely to melt down in public. Only this time, she did. That's right, brash & sassy fans. It is the normally very calm and poised victoria newman caught on tape being anything but. This shocking exclusive coming up after the break. Stay tuned.
Victoria: You know what i think? I think we should celebrate with a working lunch. Whatever you want.
Billy: Well, that sounds fantastic. It's not every day you get your company back.
Victoria: That's true. Now we can pay jack's obnoxious rent increase, we can relaunch dare. We should be back on track by the holidays.
Billy: If not before. Let's go.
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Victoria: Oh, it's cane.
Billy: You should do yourself a favor and just block him.
Victoria: No, he says we should turn on the "the hilary hour." "You can't miss this."
Billy: What's this pathetic loser trying to pull now?
Jack: I think I've been quite clear about my feelings for brash & sassy. They are a chief competitor, and I want them eliminated.
Phyllis: Even if that is your motivation and sticking it to billy is purely incidental, cane is another story. He's out for revenge in the worst way, and that is so not what I am after.
Jack: Oh, then it's a kinder, gentler kind of corporate espionage you're after.
Phyllis: Unlike the two of you, I am not trying to destroy victoria's company. I simply do not want billy's life to be swallowed whole, end of story.
Jack: May I suggest that to accomplish that you are going to need to get your well-manicured hands a few shades dirtier.
[ Door opens ]
Ashley: Excuse me. Pardon the interruption. I just got a text from abby. We have to turn on "the hilary hour" right now.
Hilary: Welcome back. Now, we've all heard the old saying "never mix business with pleasure." Now, in this exclusive video footage, we see victoria newman learn this lesson the hard way.
Victoria: I don't understand. What does she have on me?
Mariah: Full disclosure -- my co-host has not previously shared this clip with me, so i have no more idea of what's coming than any of you.
Hilary: Now, I captured what you are about to see earlier today. For those of you who don't know, the other man on sight, this male power player with victoria is benjamin hochman, the recently divorced chicago financier and corporate raider who singlehandedly dismantled nationwide department stores.
Benjamin: This is insane. What the hell is she about to air?
Hilary: Roll tape.
Victoria: You know, people warned me about you. Yeah, they did. They said you were a pompous ass who couldn't be trusted. I should have listened. I don't know how I could be so stupid, actually.
Benjamin: You know, stupid would be not taking my help. Brash & sassy won't survive without it. You paint this rosy picture about your company, but it's in serious trouble.
Victoria: Oh, we'll do just fine with you, benjamin. Guaranteed.
Benjamin: Please just stop. I-I hate -- I hate how you've twisted these things up. I care for you.
Victoria: Oh, save it! I can't believe I actually spent the night with you! It was such a huge mistake!
Benjamin: Oh, really? Because you certainly seemed to enjoy it at the time. Couldn't get enough of the hoch.
Victoria: Oh, well, as it is, I can't remember most of it. And now, truthfully, I'm gonna pretend like we never even met.
Benjamin: Well, as you can see, my deal with brash & sassy's never gonna happen, so I'm not gonna need your consulting work on a damn thing.
Hilary: So, any thoughts?
[ Chuckles ] Well, excuse my speechless co-host. Now, tell me, is brash & sassy broke & passé? Who knew that one night of mindless sex could lead to this much hideousness? Well, I'm sure that some of you did. This is "the hilary hour." I am hilary curtis signing off. Ciao.
Lily: Look, it doesn't matter how I feel about hilary. Anyone who knows the both of you know that you're way too good for her.
Jordan: I don't know about that.
Lily: Yeah. I mean, you're way too decent and kind and special to be with a viper like her.
Jordan: Special? Come on.
Lily: Yes. You deserve to be with someone who won't take you for granted or treat your feelings like they're nothing.
Jordan: What if I've already found that woman, only... she's not an option?
Next on "the young and the restless"...
Abby: Nick moved out. Dad gave the place to me.
Neil: We just gave a bridge loan to victoria newman.
Devon: You did that without talking to me first?
Victoria: How could you? Airing that filthy trash. You're taking that footage of me offline, and you're doing it now.
