Jack: How's breakfast?

Nikki: It's delicious, but not as good as the one that you made me up at the cabin.

Jack: You inspire my inner james beard.

Nikki: Are you saying that I'm your culinary muse?

Jack: I'm saying you inspire a lot of things in me. We should get up there again soon.

Nikki: I'd like that. There's just something so wonderful about that place. It makes me feel alive. It's just...unique. I can't explain it. I feel truly like I can be myself, and I haven't felt that way in a long time.

Jack: Have you told victor?

Nikki: No, and I'm not going to because then it would become about him instead of us, and that's the last thing I want.

Dina: Thank you.

Graham: You sure you don't want any breakfast?

Dina: Oh, no, no. Coffee's just fine. Did room service bring up the paper?

Graham: You know, before i bring it over, I need to talk to you.

Dina: Ooh. Something important, I take it.

Graham: Well, I know the thought of jack getting involved with nikki again sends you into orbit.

Dina: Oh, boy, does it.

Graham: And you've warned him several times about how reckless it is, and he refuses to listen.

Dina: Well, victor isn't someone to be trifled with, especially when it comes to his wife, and I'm so afraid of what he might do to my son.

Graham: It's a serious situation.

Dina: Yes, it is.

Graham: Which is why I took matters into my own hands to help hasten the demise of that relationship.

Dina: How?

[ Door slams ]

Abby: Well, this is shaping up to be the day from hell.

[ Sighs ]

Lauren: [ Sighs ] Do you mind if we order something right away before we look at that schedule? I woke up starving. Ooh! They have that artichoke omelette you love.

[ Laughs ] They look cozy.

Phyllis: They certainly do.

Lauren: You don't have an objection about them... I mean, they were married. They have history.

Phyllis: Do you remember what happened last time? Because it always happens. Nikki goes back to victor, and jack gets dumped.

Lauren: Well, that's between the two of them.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. Jack's heart is gonna get handed to him. He knows it, she knows it, and yet, they go through the ritual anyway.

Lauren: Honey, you're living with billy. You're happy with billy. You got over jack a long time ago.

[ Scoffs ] Why is this bothering you?

Phyllis: Let's just say, i hate paying for a ticket when i know how the show's gonna end.

Lauren: Okay. Something's bugging you, and unless you tell me, I don't know what it is, but it's sure as hell not jack and nikki.

Phyllis: You know what, let's order.

Lauren: [ Chuckles ] All right, then maybe I'll just guess. And if I were to go by what occupies your thoughts most of the time, it's billy and how secure you really feel in that relationship.

Billy: Like I said, I didn't have time to get thorough with this, but I was able to download a few files off the main server. This right here is a game changer.

Victoria: Do you know what this means?

Billy: Yeah. It levels the playing field.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] This is incredible. I could kiss you.

[ Sighs ] I hope you were careful. I don't want to create any tension between you and phyllis.

Billy: We're fine, okay? Phyllis doesn't know that I've been on her computer, okay? We're golden here.

[ Door slams ]

Ashley: You're never gonna guess where graham's mother's from originally.

Ravi: Where?

Ashley: Here.

Ravi: What?

Ashley: The lady that jack spoke to at the senior residence in boca, she volunteered the information. It stands to reason if graham's mother spent time in genoa city, then he probably did, too, right?

[ Telephone rings ]

Ravi: Uh, yeah.

Ashley: I need you to do another search. Could you go online and try to find out whatever you can about graham's childhood? Maybe start with the chronicle's archives. Birth certificates and his scholastic achievement, that kind of thing.

Ravi: Sure, absolutely. I'm just gonna answer this first.

Ashley: Okay.

Ravi: Hey. Hey, jared, what's up? When? And you're absolutely sure? Okay, thanks for letting me know. I'll take it from here.

Ashley: What's going on?

Ravi: We have a problem.

Ravi: Given the spike in ransomware worldwide and our concerns about graham gaining access to company files, i worked with it to upgrade security on the server. The fix we installed should alert us to any suspicious activity.

Ashley: So were we hacked?

Ravi: Not exactly. There was an unauthorized download.

Ashley: What did they get? Personnel records?

Ravi: Research and development. Someone got in, made copies of files, files that only you and jack were authorized to download.

Victoria: Billy, this could be amazing.

Billy: Perfect payback for jack trying to bury us with lauren. All because he hates me, which i can live with, but the way that he's hurting you in the process, I'm not gonna stand for. In jack's mind, you and everything this company has built is collateral damage in his war against me, okay? Well, I'm not gonna let that happen. Jack made a mistake coming after us. Anything that happens to him from here on out, he brought on himself.

Victoria: Thank you. Thanks for that, and for trying to protect me, but what you're doing is incredibly dangerous.

Billy: Phyllis is not gonna find out, okay?

Phyllis: It's more than that, okay? Corporate espionage is a federal crime. You've gotten away with it twice. I appreciate you taking the risk, but I don't want you to press your luck anymore, billy. Your spying days are over, okay?

Billy: Okay. Before we make that decision, let's just see what we got.

Nikki: Busy day today?

Jack: Yeah, as always, and you just changed the subject.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] Okay, jack. No, I am not afraid of victor finding out that you and I are seeing each other.

Jack: You're not the slightest bit anxious about how he's gonna react.

Nikki: Let me tell you. The first time we drove up to the cabin, I was so furious with him. That's part of the reason why i wanted to go. I relished flaunting it in his face. I knew that it would get to him so much, and that made me happy. Me going on an overnight getaway with you of all people. But then I thought about it, and I realized that wouldn't be right. It would be using you.

Jack: Oh, use me. Flaunt me to your heart's content. Let that man know how irrelevant he really is.

Nikki: Believe me, you don't mean that.

Jack: Oh, I think I do.

Nikki: I don't even want to think about the ugliness that he would unleash.

Jack: Okay. This is your call. We can be as discreet or as open as you decide. And I promise I will respect your decision.

Nikki: I appreciate that.

Jack: You know, the real irony here is victor did all this. If his behavior toward you hadn't been so ugly, we never would have had this wonderful time together. Maybe I ought to send him a fruit basket.

Nikki: Okay. I know you're kidding. Sort of. But baiting the man just to get a rise out of him, that'S... kind of like the manipulation I'm trying to escape.

Jack: You don't want to stoop to his level. I respect that.

Nikki: It would diminish what you and I have together. And that would be a shame.

Graham: I sent photos of nikki and jack at the abbott cabin to victor.

Dina: Why in the world would you go to that extreme?

Graham: So victor would know they're spending time together.

Dina: Mm.

Graham: You told me to do something.

Dina: But this?

Graham: Well, it's hardly the kind of information I could bring to victor. We're barely acquainted. The longer this liaison continues, the worse the fallout will be for jack, and if victor is as volatile as you say, best we give him a heads up now rather to have him find out through, say, "the hilary hour" or some other tabloid, don't you think?

Dina: Oh, god forbid that ever goes public. That would only incite victor further.

Graham: Not to mention what it would do to your son's reputation.

Dina: Oh, god...

Graham: You'd be saving jack from himself by ending this quickly.

Dina: No, no, no, I'd be saving jack from this woman. She's using him. Now, why can't my son see that?

Graham: If victor contacts you, tell him you thought he had a right to know.

Abby: So they are in breach of contract. We do have recourse.

Victor: [ Exhales sharply ] Sweetheart, we always have recourse, you know?

Abby: So they can't just renege on the deal because someone else offered them a higher price per share?

Victor: Not without incurring the kind of loss that would make it unattractive to the next buyer, okay? One call from our legal department will settle the issue.

Abby: Has any acquisition in the history of the world gone smoothly, or do they all make you want to rip your hair out? Dad?

Victor: Um, sweetheart, the latter.

Abby: Okay, what's got you so distracted?

Victor: I got this envelope from your grandmother. And just as you walked in, I was about to open it. No idea what this is about?

Abby: None. Go for it. Dad, what is it?

Abby: Well, I -- I can't believe this. You know, when I walked in on them at the cabin, I --

Victor: Wait a minute. If you walked in on them in the cabin, that means you knew.

Abby: Hang on. Look, dad... work was crazy. I drove up there one afternoon to clear my head, and... when I got there, jack was there with nikki, so I didn't stay, but... look, I thought I had stopped whatever was happening from happening. Not that anything was necessarily happening. Dad, before I left, I begged nikki not to do anything to hurt you.

Victor: To be hurt, I would have to care, okay? I don't give a damn. They're just trying to get under my skin.

Abby: But jack and nikki didn't send that picture, dina did. The question is -- why?

Victor: She obviously knew what was going on and didn't want me to be kept in the dark. I don't give a damn if they lie in the gutter.

Abby: But, dad... I do think you give a damn.

Jack: Well, as much as I hate for this to end, I have to get to the office. You have a wonderful day.

Nikki: Oh, you too. And at the risk of repeating myself, what's happening between you and me has nothing to do with getting back at victor. At least not on my part.

Jack: Not on mine, either.

Nikki: Bye.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh, my god.

Lauren: Okay. So... you and billy.

Phyllis: We're fine.

Lauren: Mm. So nothing to see here, just move along.

Phyllis: Do me a favor and stop looking for problems where they don't exist.

Lauren: So everything's perfect, you're happy, all your challenges are behind you?

Phyllis: Working for competing companies has been our biggest hurdle to overcome.

Lauren: Yes, competing companies that just happen to be run by your exes.

Phyllis: One of whom's pretty damn sneaky.

Lauren: Mm, I'm gonna say that's a coin toss.

Phyllis: So... have you reconsidered doing business with brash & sassy, given the sleazy way they have manipulated their numbers?

Lauren: Here we go.

Phyllis: If you tell me i need to prove that to you, I'm not going to do it because the numbers aren't gonna lie.

Lauren: You're right. Brash & sassy had a horrible quarter, but they are bouncing back, which good for them. Let's hope they keep it up.

Phyllis: Why are you so determined to ignore this situation?

Lauren: If by "the situation," you mean your wild conspiracy theory...

Phyllis: "Wild?" What are you talking about, lauren? Open your eyes. Victoria's sales last month, they tanked, after all that bad pr, and then out of nowhere, she confronts ashley about an internal marketing plan that only a handful of people knew about. Where did she get wind of that? The parker beauty acquisition had not even been announced, yet she had the information.

Lauren: Yeah, and what about jack's proposal to me, that i ditch brash & sassy and give parker beauty shelf space -- a plan I said no to -- and that got out, too.

Phyllis: And then out of nowhere, her company has a huge spike in sales, all roughly for the same dollar amount. How bizarre is that? I mean, are you seeing what I'm seeing? Because if you're not, you need to get your eyes checked.

Lauren: Okay, uh, go easy, girl.

Phyllis: Dismal quarter, a perceived threat by some kind of insider info, and then that's followed by an avalanche of increased sales, for the same amount -- $100 purchases. Now, maybe they're trying to prove to us that they're worthy of being on our shelves, I don't know, but my question is -- how does a woman like that get her hands on our proprietary information?

Lauren: "A woman like that?" What about billy? He's her right hand.

Phyllis: I trust billy implicitly. Her, not so much. I told jack that I think she's the one that planted the mole at jabot. Maybe it was someone at fenmore'S. I don't know!

Lauren: Fenmore's? No. Nobody knew. Just you and me.

Phyllis: Then, tell me, how is victoria getting her hands on that confidential information? Clearly, they're not on the up-and-up.

Lauren: You don't know that.

Phyllis: Yeah, I do know that, and I was upset that you did not agree with me that you should take jack up on his marketing plan.

Lauren: All right. You know what? Enough. I run the store. Me. Stop second-guessing my decisions. Yes, brash & sassy, their last quarter stunk, but now they are recovering, which is great because all I'm seeing are sales, and that's all I care about, and if jabot has a leak, well, then, I'm sorry. Not my problem. Please don't make it one.

Phyllis: So the fact that this situation is clearly underhanded and that it's affecting our primary business partner...

Lauren: How is brash & sassy's turnaround affecting parker beauty, who, by the way, has not even launched yet?

Phyllis: Will you listen to me?

Lauren: What did jack say to you to get you on his side against victoria? What, did he promise you that if her company went belly-up that billy would become the stay-at-home boyfriend?

Phyllis: [ Scoffs ]

Lauren: But you and jack made some sort of truce, and trust me, he does not have your best interests at heart. Especially when it comes to billy. Now, let him and victoria go at it. But don't let him drag you down any further. You need to protect yourself, and you need to protect your relationship, especially if it's solid as you claim it to be.

Ashley: Ravi, those r&d files represent our entire work product. If they were able to get their hands on line extensions or chemical formulas... and I mean, the very thought that they're stealing my intellectual property and maybe selling it to the highest bidder...

Ravi: We need to be prepared for the worst possible scenario, but right now, we don't know what files they took. We don't know what they intend to do with them.

Ashley: Well, nothing good for jabot, that's for sure.

Ravi: [ Sighs ]

Ashley: Are you gonna be able to find out who did it?

Ravi: That's a work in progress. What I do know is whoever accessed the network used a legitimate password.

Ashley: I might know exactly who did this.

Ravi: Before you jump to any conclusions, I need to cross-check the ip addresses on all proprietary jabot computers, a process I haven't even begun yet. So whatever you're thinking, right now, it's purely speculative.

Ashley: Okay. Well, you handle the tech end, and once you get confirmation... and I'm gonna take it from there.

Billy: From what I could tell, they have a lot coming up in the pipeline here. Ashley's been busy.

Victoria: Anything threatening?

Billy: Nothing that's gonna compete with our mask, if that's what you're asking.

Victoria: Well, that's a relief, and we need to get ours out there asap before they catch onto what we're doing.

Billy: And I told you that I'm working on that. The expedited launch is right on track. Look, right here. That's what I wanted to show you.

Victoria: Jabot junior? That's a blast from the past. It's a teen line that I worked on with ryan and neil when we were starting brash & sassy.

Billy: They have plans to resurrect it with a major launch.

Victoria: That's not good.

Billy: No. "Restructuring all our old classics along with new ones to capitalize on the current trends."

Victoria: "With an expanded palette to accommodate younger women of all ethnicities." They already have a marketing plan. They have deals with all of the biggest beauty influencers on viewclick.

Billy: They're going after millennials, generation Z...

Victoria: Oh, my god, that's just what we were ramping up to do.

Billy: Only with 10 times our budget.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] When I bought this company, we were going after an older, more sophisticated crowd, and it was going well, but dare -- dare has been a huge surprise for us.

Billy: Yeah, because our demographic is younger than we expected, which is why we planned on dumping more money into going after that demographic.

Victoria: Do you think that's wise given what jabot is planning? I mean, maybe we should put our resources somewhere else.

Billy: I don't think we should make any decisions till we know what we got here.

Victoria: Oh, gosh, billy. This is such a huge headache. Jabot coming on strong with one of our demographics that we're counting on? I mean, we're not healthy enough to fight back.

Billy: Okay, hold on. Jabot is much bigger than us, right? They have a longer process from getting products onto the shelves, meanwhile...

Victoria: We are a small company in dire financial straits.

Billy: We have less layers, okay? We have less red tape to go through. We need to come up with something dazzling for the younger crowd and beat jabot to the punch.

Ashley: I hope I didn't come at a bad time.

Graham: Ashley. Back so soon. Was there a drawer you left unopened or a cupboard you didn't get a chance to search?

Ashley: I know what you did, and you're not gonna get away with it. I'll take that as an admission.

Graham: Where are my manners? Would you care for something to drink?

Ashley: I'd settle for some truth, actually.

Graham: Speaking of manners, one would think yours would be better given your upbringing as an abbott.

Ashley: Another thing about us abbotts... we protect our own. Fiercely.

Graham: You know, I must admit, I have a unique on your family. I only know what your mother's told me. You sure you don't want some iced tea?

Ravi: Dina! May I speak with you, please?

Dina: Oh, ravi! Of course. What can I do for you, dear?

Ravi: Uh... I need to borrow your computer.

Dina: Oh?

Ravi: Protocol. I have to check the security settings.

Dina: Oh, I see. Well, of course. Here you go.

Ravi: Great. Uh, I will get this back to you asap.

Dina: Oh, thank you. And I truly mean that, ravi. You've been wonderful helping me with my computer this way. And, you know, your dedication, well, it's very rare these days.

Ravi: Well, you can never be too careful.

Dina: Right.

Ravi: Bye.

Dina: Bye.

Abby: Tell patricia to have it on my desk first thing monday morning. Thanks. Oh! Great! Crisis averted.

Victor: Sweetheart, if you need to get to the office, don't let me keep you, okay?

Abby: I'll take off in a minute, but, um... dad, can I say something? It's about nikki's benefit concert.

Victor: What about it?

Abby: Well, it was such a labor of love for you.

Victor: Mm.

Abby: All of the hard work and effort that you put in to honor the woman that you love and, yes, things got ugly afterwards. Nikki's upset with you for punching nick, and some might even say she's less than grateful.

Victor: Well...

Abby: But I never doubted that she loves you, and I still believe that she does.

Victor: Sweetheart, her actions seem to indicate otherwise.

Abby: You two would have worked things out by now if jack hadn't injected himself. You know, I hate when he acts this way. He's better than that and he knows it.

Victor: Anyway, if you say so, my love.

Abby: All right. I love you, dad.

Victor: I love you, too.

Abby: I'm gonna take off, but please think about what I said about nikki.

Victor: You have a nice day, okay?

Abby: Okay.

Victor: Bye, sweetheart.

Abby: Nikki! [ Chuckles ]

Nikki: Well, hi, abby!

Abby: Have a good one.

Nikki: You, too. Thanks for the photo. Nice to have a memento of a lovely evening.

Victor: What the hell are you doing here? I thought you might like that photo. Reminded you of your exhibitionist tendencies.

Nikki: The dancing was my choice. And going to the cabin with jack was my choice. Now, I want you to stay out of my life.

"The young and the restless"

will continue.

Nikki: Who do you think you are? Hiring some spy to sneak around taking pictures of jack and me through a window? It's tacky, and it's an invasion of privacy. It's disgusting!

Victor: Are you finished?

Nikki: No, I am not. Now, despite your claims that are you thrilled that I am moving on with my life, you are still monitoring me. You're still trying to control me and shame me...

Victor: How dare you walk in here and give me a lecture!

Nikki: If your mission in life is to find new ways to hurt me, go right ahead and do it!

Victor: I have no idea who took these damn pictures!

Nikki: Is that so?

Victor: If you don't want to involve jack abbott, then you find out who the hell took this picture. I didn'T.

Nikki: I know you didn'T. Somebody you hired did it.

Victor: I don't give a damn who did! Take a look at it! How dare you walk in here! Don't you ever do it again!

Nikki: Dina?

Jack: When customers enter the cosmetics department, parker beauty should be the first line they see.

Lauren: Oh, I'm gonna give it prominent placement.

Jack: Front and center. Not against the wall somewhere. In all of the stores.

Lauren: Jack, I am not gonna have my managers rearranging departments for you and ashley, no matter how many tales you want to spin about brash & sassy's impressive sales numbers.

Jack: Then you told her.

Lauren: Of course she told me. She works for me, not you. Something you seem to be forgetting lately.

Jack: Speaking as fenmore's biggest stakeholder...

Lauren: After me.

Jack: ...Whose investment kept your company afloat, i expect your help in making sure that my new products are a success.

Lauren: Oh, don't worry. I plan on making the best, most profitable decisions for us, and that means I'm gonna be carrying both lines. And placement is going to be based on my many years of running a national retail chain. Now, there is no proof that brash & sassy inflated their numbers in a problematic way, only in your fevered imagination. So stop wasting my most valuable employee's time. Got it? We are so done here.

Phyllis: Okie dokie.

Ravi: Hey, lauren.

Lauren: Ravi.

Ravi: Do you have a sec?

Lauren: Yeah. Yeah, yeah.

Ravi: Um, I left a message with your assistant.

Lauren: Is there something wrong with the virtual dressing room?

Ravi: No, it -- it has nothing to do with that. Can we speak in private in my office?

Lauren: Yeah. Yeah, of course.

Ravi: Great.

Graham: Lemon?

Ashley: It was very clever of you to convince my mother that your input on her report was invaluable.

Graham: I merely reviewed the documents.

Ashley: You "merely reviewed the documents?"

Graham: To tell the truth, this is still all an education for me.

Ashley: Uh-huh, and I bet that flattery convinced her to give you access to her computer and the password into jabot's server.

Graham: And your point?

Ashley: We have state-of-the-art cyber security, graham, okay? It's gonna be no time before our it people identify who entered our server and when.

Graham: What are you accusing me of now?

Ashley: What did you do with the r&d files that you stole?

Graham: I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

Ashley: If you give them to me now, I won't press charges.

Graham: Let's try this another way. As I have no interest in the inner workings of jabot cosmetics, what motive would I have? Unless dina's new assignment is in r&d, why would I even want to read those files?

Ashley: You know very well that our competitors would pay a lot of money for that information.

Graham: And I don't need the money.

Ashley: Well, you know, i don't want to sound insensitive, but we don't know how much time my mother has left, do we? Could take a long time for you to cash in.

Graham: If I were the craven opportunist you seem to think i am, the last thing I would do would be to sell your corporate secrets. If I hurt dina's children in any way, she'll disinherit me. Why risk it?

Ashley: I don't know, because you thought you could get away with it? Because you have so much confidence in your hold over my mother? Because you can never get your hands on enough money? Because there's always surprise expenses, emergencies... what the hell? I imagine that your way of life costs a lot of money to maintain. Am I right? Do you mind if I look at your computer?

Victoria: [ Sighs ] I know i should breathe, I should keep a clear head, and I should strategize right now.

Billy: All of those things.

Victoria: Instead I'm freaking out because you know this is about a lot more than competing for shelf space.

Billy: You know what this document should be titled? "A direct target on brash & sassy's core customers, going after the young generation who have not yet established brand loyalty," because that is exactly what jack is trying to do.

Victoria: You see? You see? You're worried, too, aren't you?

Billy: I am worried, but I'm using my anxiety and trying to get into action.

Victoria: Okay, well, I'm sorry, I'm not there yet.

Billy: Well, you will be.

Victoria: I didn't see this coming, this youth line. Had you heard of it?

Billy: No, I haven't, and i don't think phyllis heard about it, either.

Victoria: You think she would tell you if she did?

Billy: Not directly, but i know her well enough. I feel like I could read it on her.

Victoria: Well, she knows you well, too, and that's what concerns me. It's a risk going in her computer. If jack finds out about it...

Billy: It's gonna be trouble. Yes, I heard you the first time. But we're already here, okay? We're not going back. We have bigger problems right now.

Phyllis: So, have you found victoria's spy?

Jack: Still investigating.

Phyllis: Well, you got to make sure you're not talking in your sleep when you spend the night at nikki'S.

Jack: When nikki and I are together, sales figures are the last thing on my mind.

Phyllis: What is on your mind, jack? Is this serious? Are you just trying to piss off victor?

[ Knocks on door ]

Jack: Come in.

Nikki: Hi. Oh, hello.

Phyllis: Nikki. Don't mind me, I was just leaving.

Jack: Wow. Twice in one day. Can't stand life without me?

Nikki: I hate to interrupt your work.

Jack: Nonsense. You're a welcome diversion any time.

Nikki: Well, you might not think so when I tell you why I'm here.

[ Computer chimes ]

Jack: I'm waiting for something. Be right back. Why would victor be e-mailing me?

Nikki: Oh, wait, before you open that, I --

Jack: Oh, my... someone's stalking us? Victor. This is just his speed. He can't control you so now he's harassing you.

Nikki: It's more complicated than that.

Jack: How did he even know we were at the cabin? Does he have someone following you? Victoria saw us in the elevator. You think she went straight to him with the information?

Nikki: No. Victoria wouldn't do that. Someone else saw us and that's the person who hired the photographer.

Jack: Okay, obviously you know something. Don't keep me in suspense. Who was it?

Graham: That's my personal computer, not jabot'S. So there's no way I could have used it to mine your precious data, even if I wanted to. But go ahead and check. You're not gonna find anything.

Ashley: No need. I'm sure you did use my mother's computer. I know she brings it home almost every night.

Graham: Listen to yourself, ashley. What would john abbott say about these baseless accusations?

Ashley: Why are you bringing up my father?

Graham: Well, your mother seems to think he was a saint, one of the most ethical businessmen to ever walk the planet.

Ashley: Yes, he was. Someone like you would never be capable of understanding a man like him.

Graham: You have no idea what I'm capable of.

Lauren: When did the breach occur?

Ravi: Late last night. We upgraded the system, so it's only a matter of time before cyber security tracks down the person responsible.

Lauren: [ Sighs ] I'm glad to hear it. These data thefts are everywhere. No company is immune. You know, I really need to you to check out fenmore's security and make sure that we are at least as strong as jabot'S.

Ravi: Okay.

Lauren: Thank you.

Phyllis: Hey. What's going on?

Ravi: There was an unauthorized download, secure jabot r&d files. Files that only jack and ashley were cleared to download.

Phyllis: Which files?

Ravi: I'm working on that now.

Phyllis: What?

Ravi: Yeah, it seemed like...

Phyllis: What? What's the issue?

Ravi: Um... I'm actually gonna need to check all employee computers to try and figure out what happened. Since you're here, I'll start with yours.

Phyllis: Well, you don't suspect me, do you?

Billy: We take brash & sassy back to the roots, okay? We reposition to be more youth-oriented.

Victoria: Dare and bare for the teen market -- really?

Billy: Those names...

Victoria: It's too adult, but maybe if we broaden the appeal of our new mask...

Billy: Okay. I like that. We go towards the teens.

Victoria: Yes, it's a good idea, and using the information that you stole off their server, we know that it's the one product that jabot isn't working on yet.

Billy: Okay, so we have a teen line, and then we have another one for adults that are living in cities that are prone to pollution, and -- geez, man. You just show up like that? That's a hell of skill set.

Victor: My skills are of a more material nature. I'm willing to put them at your disposal.

Billy: Well, we don't need your help, victor, so thank you.

Victor: I think victoria will think otherwise once you're in prison.

Billy: I don't know what you think you heard, but...

Victor: Enough to realize that brash & sassy is in big trouble, which prompted you to take drastic and illegal measures.

Billy: So, what, you're gonna turn me in now?

Victoria: Okay, hold on. Everybody take a breath. Dad told me that if I needed a hand with anything, he would be available, and I think that's what he meant.

Victor: If jack abbott comes after brash & sassy, that is tantamount to coming after you, and I will not allow that. You give me the word, we'll stop him. He'll never do it again.

Ravi: I am being methodical, phyllis. Given the nature of this intrusion and the way we have set up our security patch, i need to check every jabot company computer.

Phyllis: Well, that's a lot of machines.

Ravi: Dozens.

Lauren: I have one, too.

Ravi: We'll need to see it.

Lauren: Okay.

Phyllis: Well, you know what, I know that you are gonna get down to the bottom of this, ravi, and whoever helped themselves to those files, they deserve to be fired on the spot.

Ashley: Look, graham, ravi is conducting a thorough search. If you did this, I'm gonna find out soon enough.

Graham: You know, I welcome the truth coming out. Then you'll realize that I'm not the bastard in all of this.

Ashley: Okay, well... we'll see.

Dina: Jack! You wanted to see me, dear?

Jack: Close the door behind you. Victor sent this to me today as a gift. Before I sent him a thank-you note, I thought I'd get something straight. This is your doing, isn't it?

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

Mariah: It's not devon. It's me. I'm attracted to someone else.

Ravi: I do know whose password unlocked the gate.

Ashley: Well, whose is it?

Ravi: Your mother'S.

Dina: I take full responsibility, but you, jack, are solely to blame for this tawdry mess!
