Episode # 11249 ~ Jack defends his relationship with Nikki; Ashley vows to protect Dina; Victoria makes her feelings for Billy known.

Provided By Suzanne

Victoria: I know what you're up to.

Phyllis: Riding the elevator? Or I was, until you stopped it.

Victoria: You're plotting and you're scheming.

Phyllis: Ohhh! Okay. You're worried that I'm planning another rendezvous with billy in here? Actually, I do take the elevator to get from floor to floor, and not just to have hot sex with your ex-husband.

Victoria: You see? Right there. That bitchy dig just proves it. So, what is your goal, phyllis? Are you out to take me down? My company? Or both?

Sharon: Alice is hiding something at the very least. I mean, she misled me straight to my face, saying that she was just passing through town when clearly she lives so closeby. Then her neighbor mentioning that she saw her niece visiting? Alice doesn't have a niece. Besides her mother, alice doesn't have any family. So this niece must be one of the prostitutes. You see? It all adds up. My instincts were right in the first place. Alice is part of the sex ring.

Ashley: Oh, god.

Ravi: I know that look. What's jack done now?

Ashley: Billy and victoria might be right. I think jack is trying to undermine brash & sassy.

Ravi: Oh, my god. How?

Ashley: I'm just trying to piece the whole thing together myself. I mean, the best-case scenario is that it's some petty, underhanded scheme that's completely unnecessary for us to hit our revenue target.

Ravi: Okay, and worst-case scenario? Something illegal?

Ashley: I hope not.

Ravi: [ Sighs ] Have you conftoned him?

Ashley: He didn't deny it. He didn't admit it. He's guilty.

Ravi: I'm sorry to hear that.

Ashley: This is typical jack behavior. When things don't go his way or he's nursing a grudge, he's not above playing dirty.

Ravi: If this is his typical M.O., Why are you so concerned?

Ashley: Because it's not right. And it could backfire. I mean big time. There could be repercussions that would affect our company. That's why I have to get as much information as I can get.

Jack: Have a seat.

Hilary: It has been too long. We have so much catching up to do. I have not had a moment to breathe since I got back from new york. I was shooting a huge commercial. On-camera talent for a national spot.

Jack: You never let anything get in your way. Always making inroads.

Hilary: Well, isn't that what a rising star is supposed to do?

Jack: Not when it comes at the expense of people I care about.

Scott: On reflection, we need to be careful about jumping in with both feet and accusing alice.

Sharon: But...the evidence.

Scott: Right now, it's a theory you're trying to support. There could be other explanations for what you observed. I mean, it's possible there is no local sex-trafficking ring for her to be a part of.

Sharon: What happened to the guy who said he trusted my instincts? And then went home last night and used alice's credit card to get her billing address? I mean, I was trying to talk myself out of this, and you were telling me there was something to it.

Scott: Could be something to it. I think what I said was that it's worth pursuing. But, you know, it's not a foregone conclusion.

Sharon: Okay, so, now what? You're playing devil's advocate? 'Cause I-I'm not sure I know where you stand.

Scott: Because I haven't decided yet. I'm still examining the facts. Let's take it piece by piece.

Sharon: Okay. Good. Um, alice lied to me about where she lives.

Scott: Maybe she didn't want you to know that she had relocated here from madison. Not until she knew where things stood. I mean, she had no idea if you or nick still blamed her for what happened to cassie.

Sharon: I suppose.

Scott: Yeah. I mean, it's plausible.

Sharon: But the niece is not plausible.

Scott: Well, maybe alice had a niece you never knew about. I mean, you hardly knew her.

Sharon: No, scott. She didn'T.

Scott: Well, I mean, how can you be so sure?

Sharon: Because of the custody case. We found out that there were no other relatives that could have cared for cassie. It was just alice and her mother, period.

Scott: I mean, the girl could be a husband's relative.

Sharon: She told me that she had no one special in her life.

Scott: Maybe not now. But you haven't seen each other for years, and a lot can happen in that time. Relationships she doesn't want to discuss. Or she could be an honorary aunt. I mean, maybe a friend's kid uses it as a term of endearment.

Sharon: No. Nobody would make alice johnson an honorary anything. Will you stop fighting with me about this?

Alice: Make yourself at home, okay? Okay. I don't need this, zack. Sending girls to my house?

Zack: It's temporary. You'll live. I want to know why you were late last night.

Alice: [ Sighs ] I ran into a couple of nosy people from my past, and i couldn't get away from them.

Zack: Friends?

Alice: [ Sighs ] Not exactly.

Zack: Do we need to deal with them?

Alice: No, I haven't seen them in years. It was more a, "what you been up to?" Kind of thing.

Zack: You didn't tell them anything, right?

Alice: I'm not stupid. I want to keep my job.

Zack: Next time, don't let anything keep you. I don't like waiting. I got your text. Everything all right?

Alice: Yeah. I was, uh, hoping we could talk about the "premium service" girls.

Zack: Who'd you select?

Alice: Okay, hold on a sec, okay? Okay. I just sent you a link. Take a look. I think you'll find they're all precious.

Zack: Who's rainbow girl?

Alice: She's one of our most requested. But...she's been trouble.

Sharon: That's a nice photo.

Tessa: Oh, uh...

Sharon: Sorry. I didn't mean to startle you. Or to spy.

Tessa: No, don't worry about it.

Sharon: Crystal looks so happy there.

Tessa: We, uh -- we spent the day at the park. We just hung out and... laughed and... we had some good times. Not enough, though.

Sharon: It's so hard to believe that that's the same young woman who called in to the crisis hotline, scared and feeling alone. Would you send me a copy of that photo? It's just...her smiling, this is the image I want to keep with me until we find her. Uh, if that's not too weird.

Tessa: No, not at all. I'm happy that my sister has someone like you on her side. I'll -- I'll text it to you.

Sharon: Do you need anything? A refill?

Tessa: Uh... no. Just for my sister to be okay.

Sharon: I'm doing all I can to make that happen.

Abby: Tessa. Hey.

Tessa: Oh, hey. Abby.

Abby: Hey. The world's newest hit-maker.

Tessa: Oh, I wish.

Abby: [ Laughs ] Well, I heard your song on devon's new streaming service. It's very catchy.

Tessa: Oh, thank you. It took us a few times to record it.

Abby: Well, you nailed it. So, is it as cool to be a singer as I think it is?

Tessa: Oh, way cooler.

Abby: [ Laughs ]

Tessa: I mean, especially when people respond to your music.

Abby: Do you have fans coming up to you all the time?

Tessa: Nope, you're the first.

Abby: Ahh.

Tessa: I'm not on the radar. Yet.

Abby: Well, I predict it'll be very soon. You'll be blowing up. And to think that it all started at an open-mike night at the underground.

Tessa: Crazy, right?

Abby: Crazy, yeah.

[ Laughs ] Well, I will be at your next show. I signed up for your mailing list. So I think it'll be a fun little date night.

Tessa: Oh, for you and, uh, um, zack, right?

Abby: Yeah, you know him?

Tessa: I met him at the benefit concert.

Abby: That's right. Yeah. Uh, zack's first introduction to the newman family and all of their drama.

[ Both laugh ] But her survived. And, miracle of all miracles, he passed my dad's interrogation.

[ Laughs ]

Tessa: Wow.

Dina: Oh, come in. Come in.

Graham: Ooh. Should I come back later?

Dina: Well, for you, I have time.

Graham: [ Chuckles ] Pretty impressive setup you have here.

Dina: Oh, thank you.

Graham: Everything you need to succeed at jabot.

Dina: Well, not quite everything. I can make a run to the office-supply store if you need it.

Dina: Oh, really? Do they sell time?

Graham: Oh, you're behind schedule.

Dina: Well, yeah, a little. I -- I just wanted to get the marketing analysis finished today.

Graham: Let me help.

Dina: I don't know.

Graham: You've trusted me with important projects at mergeron.

Dina: That's true.

Graham: So, why don't you head into the office while i finish up the reports? If you're late, jack and ashley will worry. You don't want that, do you?

Dina: I see your point.

Graham: [ Sighs ] So you go, and I'll e-mail the materials as soon as they're done. No one will be the wiser.

Dina: Thank you.

Jack: Yes, nikki is less-than-pleased with you after the way you attacked members of her family.

Hilary: Attacked? No, jack. I presented the facts. I aired a video that showed events that occurred in a public place. Both times.

Jack: Semantics, hilary. In nikki's eyes...

Hilary: Your friend is welcome to come down to the studio and do a sit-down. We can tell her side of the story.

Jack: That is not going to happen. She views your program as exploitative.

Hilary: Well, she is wrong. I've worked very hard to evolve my brand, and my audience sees "the hilary hour" as something that is helpful. It's inspiring, educational. Seeing another family's dysfunction, it can start a dialogue.

Jack: I'll be sure to pass on that little nugget of wisdom.

Hilary: Jack, I'm sorry that nikki is mad, but I can't stop doing my job just because it upsets someone, no matter how big they are in this town.

Jack: Speaking of victor newman, seeing his face splashed across the screen, getting nothing but bad press only makes me happy.

Hilary: Oh, is that why you're seeing nikki again, hmm? To make victor miserable?

Jack: My relationship with nikki has nothing to do with the mustache.

Hilary: Uh-huh.

Jack: We have a long history of looking out for each other. That's exactly what we're doing right now.

Hilary: I'm not judging. Just want to make sure that you know that you are playing a very dangerous game.

Jack: You're not the first to say that.

Hilary: I'm sure I won't be the last.

Jack: Hilary, you and I are both people who are willing to take risks. That's why I asked you to have coffee with me today. I think you can help me with a little plan of mine.

Phyllis: Okay, you're not making any sense, so why don't you move so I can get where I'm going?

Victoria: I know all about you and benjamin hochman.

Phyllis: What are you talking about?

Victoria: You told him to go out with me. Don't bother denying it.

Phyllis: Oh, wait a minute, is this junior high? Because if I nudged him in your direction, what's the problem with that? You clearly said yes. In fact, it was more like, "oh, yes, benjamin! Oh, yes!"

Victoria: You must see me as the biggest threat on earth.

Phyllis: I have wiped the floor with people twice your size, okay?

Victoria: I know you hate all of the overtime that billy's been putting in. In fact, the word that he used was "furious." Oh, was he not supposed to tell me that? I'm so sorry. Well, he did. One night, late at work, heads together, really close, he took into his confidence and told me how anxious you are about all of the time that he's been spending away from you.

Phyllis: Okay, you need to get over yourself.

Victoria: Are you part of this plan of benjamin's to take down brash & sassy? Or was this all your idea to begin with, phyllis?

Phyllis: Are you always this paranoid? Because, really, there is no... ...start pulling it together. 'Cause the last thing you need is another embarrassing.... ...on "the hilary hour!"

Phyllis: I am not in bed with ben hochman like you were, and I don't know what's going on with you, but you seriously need some help.

Victoria: I'm not the one that's gonna need help when this is all over with. So whatever you're planning to do next, don'T.

Billy: Hey.

Victoria: Hi.

Billy: I was looking for you. I got news.

Victoria: Okay. Let's hear it.

Billy: I put something in motion that should help bring our sales numbers up at fenmore'S.

Victoria: Great. Fill me in.

Billy: You know what, you got a lot going on, all right? So why don't I handle this part?

Victoria: Fair enough. I'm not gonna try to talk you out of anything, anyway, given how desperate we are right now.

Billy: Before I forget, the elevator's stuck again. You want me to handle that, or do you want to call maintenance?

Victoria: No. Elevator's fine. I was on it. I had it stopped.

Billy: Why did you have it stopped?

Victoria: I was having a conversation with somebody, and I didn't want to be disturbed.

Billy: Someone like who?

Victoria: Phyllis.

Billy: Hope that wasn't too awkward.

Victoria: Not for me, but it definitely was for her.

Ravi: Are you asking me to spy on jack? 'Cause I'm not comfortable...

Ashley: Of course not. I would never ask you to do something illegal or unethical.

Ravi: Okay. Well, if it helps, I haven't seen or heard him trying to do anything underhanded.

Ashley: Oh, believe me, you wouldn'T. He's very good at covering his tracks.

Ravi: Okay, then, why are you so concerned?

Ashley: I grew up with the guy. Next question.

Dina: Well, hello, you two.

Ashley: Can I speak with you for a second alone?

Dina: Okay.

Ravi: I'll catch up with you later.

Dina: All right. Well, I see you're still very upset about my talk with abby.

Ashley: Abby came to me with more questions about your former lover, brent davis.

Dina: Oh, dear. And what in the world did you tell her?

Ashley: Nothing that she didn't have to hear. I told her it was painful for me, and I did not want to hear his name mentioned again. And, please, the same goes for you. Please! Don't talk about him! Not to abby. Not to anybody! Nobody needs to know who he was.

Dina: I promise you, I won't say a word.

Ashley: Okay, I'm gonna hold you to that. Our family doesn't need a bomb like this to go off. Not when we're finally just starting to heal our relationship, after all these years.

Dina: You are absolutely right, darling. And I'm so sorry that it ever became an issue.

Ashley: Okay. Well, onto more pleasant matters, did you finish with that parker beauty marketing analysis by chance?

Hilary: If this plan of yours antagonizes victor in any way, you can count me out. I know you enjoy being in his crosshairs, but it is not my idea of fun.

Jack: This has nothing to do with the mustache. This is all business.

Hilary: Well, why do you need my help? I'm not in the corporate world anymore.

Jack: As your grows in popularity, you grow in influence. You talk about a product, people listen. You can send sales skyrocketing or plummeting.

Hilary: Let me guess -- brash & sassy gets a one-way ticket down, and my role will be...

Jack: To promote jabot's revamp of parker beauty's skincare line on air.

Hilary: I'm actually familiar with that brand. My makeup artist, she talks about their products. She can't wait for the rollout.

Jack: I'm telling you, when that rollout happens, it will revolutionize the industry.

Hilary: And you have data to back this up?

Jack: Enough to fill a week's worth of shows. I will give you a long list of people who will attest to its incredible results.

Hilary: We could do some makeover segments as a tie-in. The brand got a makeover, and so will you.

Jack: I like the way your mind works.

Hilary: I can't endorse a product unless I've tested it.

Jack: I will have ashley send over all kinds of samples. Any other concerns?

Hilary: [ Sighs ] Backlash from victoria. She declared war when I aired the hochman video. A pro-jabot spot -- it might make her lose her mind. She could be trouble, claiming that I'm, you know, playing favorites.

Jack: After all the free publicity you've given her with brash & sassy products on your show, I'd like to think not. Even so, you're your own show. You're beholden to no one. You're not on an exclusive contract with them. You can show as many cosmetic products on your show as your heart desires, and no one needs to know there are ulterior motives.

Hilary: Still...

Jack: I'll sweeten the pot. You do this one favor for me, I will owe you one, and you know I always pay up.

Hilary: Okay. I'll do it. And, yes, you will owe me one.

Hilary: It must be kismet, seeing you here in my studio.

Tessa: Mm, can't wait to hear why.

Hilary: Well, I have these makeover segments coming up, and if you want a fresh spin on your...unique look, I could guarantee you a spot.

Tessa: Ooh! You know, here's a better idea. You should do a makeover on your soul. Well, you know, I guess that would be more an exorcism.

Hilary: Why are you here?

Tessa: I'm looking for mariah. Do you know where she is?

Hilary: Yeah, she's probably taking some sad-face selfies in her dressing room.

Tessa: And why would she be upset?

Hilary: You know, she just realized that devon never got over me, and that she really was the rebound.

Tessa: What's your damage? Are you that broken and insecure that you need to make other people feel bad about themselves?

Hilary: I don't --

Tessa: Look, devon and mariah's relationship is the real deal. Sorry to fact check, superstar, but whatever you had with him is history. And nobody in their right mind would pick you over mariah.

Hilary: The real question is -- why have you appointed yourself mariah's guardian and protector?

Zack: What kind of trouble has this rainbow girl been?

Alice: Nothing too bad. She's feisty, is all. Had to take her off the roster for a while, but I got her back in line.

Zack: A little 'tude is not a bad thing. Some of our high-end clients have, uh, unusual tastes. You know, I think this one's gonna make us a ton of money.

Alice: I like the sound of that.

Zack: We'll talk more later.

Scott: You gonna ignore me the rest of the day?

Sharon: I just don't want any negativity.

Scott: Technically, I was trying to be realistic. Wait! Wait, wait, wait. I've been researching alice's family tree online.

Sharon: And?

Scott: And apparently, you're right about a point in there. I can't find any siblings or husbands that are connected to her family tree, which means...

Sharon: She doesn't have a niece!

Scott: There's still a chance that this girl could be a non-blood relation. But it does strengthen your case. Am I out of the doghouse?

Sharon: Yeah. And I'm gonna give you a special treat later for putting up with me.

Scott: Well, I'll take the treat, but I don't see it that way. We're in this together, sharon.

Sharon: It means a lot that you're helping me.

Scott: I'm a methodical guy. It's an occupational hazard, and I know it can be frustrating to deal with. But I do trust your instincts. It's just that I've been trained to check and recheck all the facts before I react.

Sharon: That's why you're such a great journalist.

Scott: One of the reasons. Are you sure you can't just, you know, give this woman the benefit of the doubt and walk away?

Sharon: You know, if it were anybody else, perhaps. But alice johnson is not above mistreating a child.

Scott: Your child.

Sharon: She left cassie alone with her elderly mother, and millie was in no position to be raising a young child. She did her best, but... it's the reason why my daughter was neglected. And then when alice came back to town looking for custody, cassie was terrified. She didn't want to go with her. She didn't want her to be her mother. She told me how sad her life was.

Scott: Come here.

Sharon: No child should ever have those feelings. They should be loved and cared for and nurtured.

Scott: I can see why you're fighting so hard for crystal. I get it. It's the trap of an investigative report to slant the story where they want to see it end. But we have to be careful not to jump to the easy answer when we could be looking past and ignoring the real one.

Sharon: What is the easy answer here?

Scott: You want it to be alice because that would get us closer to saving crystal. And maybe you could get some justice against the woman who fought you for your daughter.

Victoria: What are you doing?

Billy: Checking for battle scars.

Victoria: Phyllis and I did not get physical.

Billy: Well, then, what were you doing in between floors?

Victoria: Some words were exchanged.

Billy: I'm sure there were.

Victoria: Look, you told me that phyllis has a problem with you working so many hours here with me, and it's obvious that she's not gonna get over that anytime soon.

Billy: Victoria, I have been here a lot, okay? But I also made it very clear to her that I have obligations here, and I plan on sticking by them.

Victoria: Thank you. I appreciate you stepping up and helping me.

Billy: It's kind of different, isn't it? You're so used to me stepping in it.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Well, we have been through a lot, haven't we? But it's nice that we're now in this place where we can rely on each other. You know what, I give you a lot of credit for that. You've changed. You've matured.

Billy: You should be careful. You're gonna ruin my reputation.

Victoria: You know, the billy abbott I fell in love with was spontaneous and he was carefree. He was a man-child. But it was exactly what I needed at that time in my life. And it brought out this side of me that was...a side I'd never seen before. It was fun. But then we had some hard times. And I needed you to be strong for me, and I know you tried, but you just couldn't do it. You were impetuous and you were reckless. I never thought you were gonna grow up, billy. So I gave up on you. I shouldn't have done that. I shouldn't have given up on you. Because the man standing in front of me right now has reached his full potential.

[ Sighs ] And he's amazing.

"The young and the restless"

will continue.

Dina: I'll have the report at the end of the day.

Ashley: If there's any way of getting it to me sooner, I'd really appreciate it. Jack is charging full speed ahead with the parker beauty line despite my reservations about rushing the rebranding process.

Dina: Have faith. I do.

Ashley: In the product, you mean?

Dina: With my children.

Ashley: I don't follow.

Dina: Well, when you believe in something, get it out there and share it with the world as soon as possible.

Ravi: Pardon the interruption.

Ashley: Hi, not at all. We were just wrapping up.

Ravi: Great. I see you have your laptop.

Dina: I do.

Ravi: If you'd like, I could install the new software you requested.

Dina: Oh, excellent idea. Thank you, ravi.

Ashley: Um, that's not gonna delay the marketing analysis, i hope.

Dina: Don't worry, dear. I won't let you down.

Tessa: Not that I feel the need to explain myself to you, but the reason I have mariah's back is because she's my friend.

Mariah: You can save your breath because friendship is a foreign concept to my co-host, as is human decency.

Hilary: Well, it looks like you're not too devastated to face the day. Fantastic. Maybe we'll actually get some work done.

Tessa: Oh, which genoa city family are you going to decimate today?

Mariah: None, if I have anything to say about it.

Hilary: Well, it's not your show, so it's not your call.

Tessa: You know, if it was, i wouldn't have to fast-forward through most of it.

Hilary: There you go again, charging in on your white horse. You know, mariah did grow up in a cult. She can handle herself. Anyways, when you are done with your little friend, come find me. We have a show to put together.

Mariah: Why do you need a marker?

Tessa: Oh, uh, she's missing the horns on her head.

Mariah: No, no, no, no, no. Hey! Hey, hey! You can't do that! She would have you arrested for defacing a national monument, and I don't think she would settle for less than the death penalty.

Tessa: Not worth it.

Mariah: But you handled her like a boss.

Tessa: Hey, I'll always defend you. Especially against nasty lies about you and devon.

Mariah: Well, the sad thing is, she wasn't wrong about devon and me.

Victoria: Wait. Stop.

Billy: Vicki... hey, are you okay?

Victoria: I'm so sorry. I'm not sure what came over me. I got carried away. That was wrong. You're with phyllis now.

[ Sighs ]

Ravi: Hey, phyllis.

Phyllis: Jack in his office?

Ravi: Yeah, but he's busy.

[ Groans ]

Jack: Phyllis. Gee, I didn't hear you come in.

Phyllis: Who told the ice princess I pushed hochman to pursue her?

Jack: Wait. Victoria knows?

Phyllis: [ Scoffs ]

Jack: I have no idea how she figured it out. Does she know I'm involved?

Phyllis: Well, I'm not sure. She didn't say anything.

Jack: Damn it. This is not good.

Phyllis: Oh, you think? You think? First, billy in here, suspecting that we're acing them out of fenmore'S. Now she's putting the hochman pieces together. How much more does she know?

Jack: More important, where is she getting her information?

Ashley: Hi.

Ravi: Hey.

Ashley: Is jack in there?

Ravi: Uh, yes, but he has a visitor -- phyllis -- and based on the fire in her eyes, they're gonna need a minute.

Ashley: Okay, well, then I'm just gonna hang out with you for a second. Is that okay?

Ravi: Yeah, of course. Actually, you should see this.

Ashley: Wait a second. Why is graham sending dina jabot correspondence?

Ravi: I don't know. I just thought you should take a look.

Ashley: Well, that's a good call. What does it say?

Ravi: I don't know, I didn't read it.

Ashley: Why not?

Ravi: It's private correspondence.

Ashley: It's business correspondence -- jabot business -- and that is a jabot-issued computer. Here, let me see.

Phyllis: Victoria put me on notice. She put me on notice. I mean, are you kidding me? She's the one who's trying to steal billy back.

Jack: I suggest both of you give up the battle. The prize is not worth all of the energy.

Phyllis: You know what, i suggest you focus on your prize. You want to wipe out brash & sassy off the corporate map, that's great. But if victoria keeps catching on...

Jack: I still say the company is going under.

Phyllis: And what are you basing this on?

Jack: Why do you doubt it?

Phyllis: What victories have you racked up? She has sent hochman packing, she got a big, fat loan from neil, and lauren is insisting on selling her products.

Jack: Two words -- parker beauty. There is no way brash & sassy can compete.

Phyllis: So may the best business win. Okay, so that is really your plan to go forward?

Jack: Sometimes the simplest answer is the best one.

Phyllis: I don't buy it. You know why? It's too passive, jack. Where's all that bloodlust? You see, I smell that you're giving up. That's because you are. Because nikki got to you.

Jack: Nikki always gets to me. Like no other woman.

Phyllis: Oh, oh, oh. So you're gonna let victoria win because you're suddenly worried about nikki's feelings?

Jack: I am not surrendering! I am not growing complacent!

Phyllis: Then what's going on? What do you have up your sleeve?

Tessa: Hilary is living in a twisted fairy tale. One where devon is still in love with her and you two aren't a real couple.

Mariah: Well, we might not be.

Tessa: Hey, don't -- don't let her get to you. Devon adores you.

Mariah: We got in a fight.

Tessa: About?

Mariah: About him ditching me so he could hang out with hilary, so they could -- how did he put it? -- "Get their friendship back on track."

Tessa: Oh.

Mariah: Yeah. Personally, I don't think that he's over her. And before you tell me that I'm overreacting, trust me, I've seen the signs for a while now.

Tessa: That sucks.

Mariah: Yeah. And it gets worse. He tried to throw out a pity "I love you" to prove that he's over her.

Tessa: [ Sighs ]

Mariah: But I didn't let him. I just -- I want him to mean it if he says something like that, and I could just tell by the look in his eyes that...he didn'T.

Tessa: Hey.

Sharon: Your fingers are flying across that keyboard.

Scott: I'm updating my files on alice while it's still fresh in my head.

Sharon: Maybe you should send a copy over to paul, keep him in the loop.

Scott: You know, I think we should wait. We don't have enough evidence.

Sharon: Well, what about the neighbor we spoke to? Valerie.

Scott: Everything she told us is hearsay, and the internet search didn't give us any conclusive facts.

Sharon: That's true.

Scott: Which doesn't mean I'm giving up.

Sharon: Thank you. I'm gonna go and help a customer.

Scott: Sure.

Abby: Hmm, so this is where you've been all day, playing hooky.

Scott: Clearly you're not camped out at newman tower, either.

Abby: Fyi, I just got here. I'm meeting a colleague.

Scott: Oh, and would that be your romantic, not-romantic-slash-dating app partner, by chance? Doesn't sound like much of a heavyweight meeting to me, but I, however, I am working on a major investigative piece.

Abby: [ Laughs ] Oh, please. You giving me a hard time about working with zack while you're doing hard-hitting journalism with sharon? Give me a break.

Sharon: Um, did I miss something?

Zack: Is there a problem?

Abby: You didn't miss anything.

Scott: Yeah, no problem here, bro.

Sharon: Looked like something was going on to me.

Abby: Well, I was just marveling at scott's ability to sniff out a story anytime, anyplace.

Scott: And I was equally intrigued by abby's choice of venue while conducting business. No offense.

Abby: Well, if you'll excuse us, my business partner and i are gonna get to work out on the patio, and, um, sharon, is there any way you could get me a coffee? Cream and two sugars. Thanks.

Sharon: I'm on it.

Sharon: She bothering you again?

Scott: Abby likes to stick her nose in everything I do. I'm used to it. Pay no attention.

Sharon: That's easy to do, especially because my mind is on crystal.

Scott: I understand. Especially since now we have more questions than answers.

Sharon: Maybe this will help.

Scott: Alice's credit card?

Sharon: Maybe we'll get lucky and she'll come looking for it.

Abby: Designdate sales have skyrocketed into the stratosphere. I have never seen a new business take off like this. Are you in outer space, too?

[ Chuckles ]

Zack: I'm just confused.

Abby: Uh, by my praise? Well, you shouldn't be. I meant every word.

Zack: What did you mean when you called me your business partner in front of scott and sharon?

Abby: Oh, I, um... well, I just --

Zack: I thought we were more than that to each other.

Abby: You can blame scott. He's always giving me a hard time. I guess it was just my knee-jerk reaction.

Zack: So, how do you feel about us?

Abby: Well, I really enjoy the time that we spend together. And you are more than just a business partner. And if you want me to go tell this whole place, I will. I'll go do it. Okay. Here I go.

Zack: Stop. No grand gesture needed. I believe you.

Abby: Well, now that, um, we're clearing things up, i just... well, I want you to know that I'm not seeing anyone else. Are you?

Zack: Nope.

Abby: Do you want to be?

Zack: Nope.

Abby: I guess that makes us exclusive.

Zack: I guess so.

Abby: And do you know what else it makes us?

Zack: The two luckiest people on the planet?

Abby: Proof that designdate works. I never would have thought that us testing out our app together would -- well, would lead to this.

Victoria: I don't know how i could let that happen. [ Sighs ]

Billy: Look.

[ Clears throat ] It's all right, okay? We just -- we got sentimental. It's not a big deal.

Victoria: Yeah, well, I'm sure that phyllis would disagree -- I mean, you guys are living together. You have a commitment to her, billy.

Billy: So let's just forget that this happened, okay?

Victoria: All right, consider it forgotten. I don't want to create any complications between you and phyllis.

Jack: Would it really be so bad if brash & sassy didn't go under? I mean, billy could hold onto his paycheck. You wouldn't be supporting him.

Phyllis: Don't you give up on this. Don't you leave me hanging. You want this company to be done with and everything that comes along with it as much as I do. Handle it.

Jack: Gee, it sounds like you want it a lot more than I do.

Phyllis: Maybe I do.

Ashley: An e-mail from graham to dina. "Here's the parker beauty marketing analysis. Lots of good info in here." Why is she letting him read over her work?

Ravi: I -- I don't want to speculate.

Ashley: And why the hell is she giving him access to confidential jabot strategy?

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

Hilary: I am a free agent. But probably not for long.

Devon: She just said that she was happy we got a chance to reconnect.

Lily: Here we go again.

Victoria: Today felt like a turning point.

Phyllis: I don't give a damn what victoria thinks!

Billy: Yeah, and I told her she was off base, but now I'm not so sure.
