Episode # 11265 ~ Jack confronts Dina about meddling in his relationship; Mariah opens up to Kevin; Billy presses his luck.

Phyllis: Somewhere in the raging river of code lies the digital fingerprints of a corporate spy.

Ravi: I wish it were as easy for me to lift as the real thing.

Phyllis: Well, you know what? There was a day I was pretty darn good at code. I'd jump right in and help you, but I got to tell you, I haven't been paying much attention to my skills.

Ravi: [ Chuckles ] You migrated to app design, where, by the way, you are a certified genius. Only so many hours in the day.

Phyllis: Do you see anything?

Ravi: I doubt I'll find a smoking gun on lauren's computer. Still, got to check them all the same.

Phyllis: Be as thorough as you want with mine. Got this paranoid phobia that somehow there's a super virus and it'll knock me out right when I have a deadline.

Ravi: I'd rather combat the ugliest super virus you could throw at me than worry about trusting my coworkers. I mean, the person who's stealing these files, they -- they can be a few feet away from us, interacting with us all day.

Phyllis: In-house corporate espionage. That's pretty chilly.

Ashley: Oh, you're chilly? How sad. Maybe you should make yourself a nice, hot cappuccino.

Phyllis: It's lovely to see you, too, ashley.

Ashley: I need to speak with ravi. And you shouldn't concern yourself with this, phyllis. I mean, you work for fenmore's, after all.

Phyllis: Hmm, actually, we have jabot-issued laptops, ashley. And ravi was just saying to me how our corporate files have been migrated into the jabot server. What is it gonna take for you to believe that you and I are on the same side for once?

Dina: I'm aware that you two have been carrying on, much to my distaste. But am I supposed to be shocked by this?

Jack: Well, I am.

Dina: Oh, you are?

Jack: What were you thinking? It wasn't enough that you ordered surveillance on your own son. You had to top it by sending the results to victor?

Dina: Don't you blame me for that!

Jack: Oh, then you didn't hire the sleazeball that took these pictures? Or you didn't have them delivered to the ranch? Which is it?!

Dina: I take full responsibility for that photo. But you, jack, are solely to blame for this tawdry mess!

Tessa: [ Trilling ]

Mariah: Hey, tessa.

Tessa: [ Trills, stops ]

Mariah: What was that?

Tessa: Um, it was a new vocal warm-up.

Mariah: Okay, well, it was, um, very interesting.

[ Chuckles ]

Tessa: Maybe I should put it in a song, you know.

Mariah: Yeah.

[ Laughs ]

Devon: Hey, hey, guys.

Mariah: Hey! How are you doing?

Devon: Good. No time for chitchat. You're supposed to be warming up.

Tessa: Oh, it smells so nice.

Devon: That's peppermint, a little bit of lemon, and organic honey.

Mariah: Look at you two in training mode. It's like a sports movie, except not awful.

Tessa: Yeah, well, every moment in the studio counts today.

Mariah: Okay, well, you two have an amazing time. Uh, I'm gonna run. One of you text me when you're done and let me know how it went.

Tessa: Wait, you're not gonna be there? Why not?

Mariah: No huge reason. I just -- I don't want to be a distraction for you.

Devon: Why would you be?

Billy: You want me to join you on your crusade to take down my brother?

Victoria: Billy.

Billy: No, he just said it, vick.

Victoria: I doubt that's what dad is suggesting.

Victor: I'm glad someone is listening. You're obviously missing the point.

Billy: I don't think I am.

Victor: I'm here to help my daughter and her company. And don't pretend that there's this long-lost love between you and your brother. We all know better, don't we?

Billy: So I'm supposed to support your vendetta against him? Victor, that's not gonna happen. Victoria and I don't need your help. Brash & sassy's not making a deal with the devil, so thank you for your time.

Victor: You're calling the shots? All right. As you wish.

Victoria: Dad, wait.

Mariah: You know, last time i was at a session, tessa had a nerve attack.

Devon: Yeah, but those two things aren't connected.

Tessa: Yeah, like, at all. That's kind of crazy.

Mariah: So is telling a performer to break their leg, but people still do it. Maybe I'm superstitious.

Tessa: Wait, are you calling yourself a jinx? Because you know those aren't real, right?

Devon: Yeah. And you're my new good-luck charm.

Tessa: Aww.

Mariah: Oh, that's very sweet. But, you know, if you believe in good-luck charms, you kind of have to believe in jinxes. It's new age physics. No, truthfully, I just have a lot of work to do at "the hilary hour," and you guys don't need me. You're gonna rock, anyway, so just skedaddle and have a great time.

Devon: Okay.

Tessa: Okay.

Mariah: You're gonna do awesome.

Tessa: Thank you so much.

Mariah: Text me afterwards and, uh, have a good time.

Tessa: Thanks.

Devon: See ya. After you.

Mariah: Bye-byes.

Devon: See ya.

Kevin: So, your best friend leaves town, and what? You go out and find new ones? Who does that?

Mariah: What the hell!

Kevin: I forgot to e-mail you, but I'm gonna be in genoa city.

Mariah: Oh, my gosh!

[ Both laugh ]

Kevin: Hi.

Mariah: What are you doing here? Please tell me that you got sick of the weather and all the happy people and that you are here to stay.

Kevin: I'd be lying. Uh, bella needed some grandma time, and I've been neglecting my family and friends.

Mariah: Hmm. You're right. That does sound more truthful.

Kevin: I miss you.

Mariah: So what's the real deal? Did paul bring you in on some top-secret mission?

Kevin: It is very top-secret.

Victoria: We knew the rest of this year was gonna be tough. That's why we moved up one of our best new products for an earlier launch.

Victor: Well, considering how well dare is doing, that should provide you some good sales for the holiday season, right?

Victoria: Except that jabot is planning a massive sneak attack. They're prepping a reboot of their old teen line, jabot junior. Dare basically saved this company. It brought us -- it brought us to the youth market.

Billy: And now jabot taketh away.

Victoria: They're gonna throw a huge amount of money at our strongest and most reliable demographic.

Victor: You can't compete with that.

Billy: Tell us something we don't know.

Victor: Fortunately, I have the solution to your problem.

Ashley: Oh, phyllis, you're against corporate espionage. How very brave of you. Would you please excuse ravi and me?

Phyllis: Okay. I will talk to you later.

Ashley: Please... tell me that you're not sharing confidential information with our friends at fenmore. Tell me I'm being paranoid right now.

Ravi: You are. We all are.

Ashley: Okay.

Ravi: It's okay. I didn't mention the interesting nugget I found.

Ashley: Which is?

Ravi: It's not the perp, at least not yet. I need to figure out which computer they used. But I do know whose password unlocked the gate.

Ashley: Well, whose is it?

Ravi: [ Sighs ] Your mother'S.

Jack: Yes, you've made your unsolicited feelings about nikki and me well known. You know what I chalk this up to? This is what mothers do, not that I'm any expert on that. But this...

Dina: Doesn't nikki's husband have a right to know?

Jack: After what he put her through, no! What about my rights? My rights to privacy? My right to pursue happiness? I would think you would want that for your son.

Dina: Well, not when you're being this careless and, frankly, downright stupid!

Jack: Oh, forgive me for not shaking the actual trees surrounding my private home in the woods. I was prepared for deer ticks and mosquitoes and maybe a bear or two.

Dina: Oh, I see.

Jack: But a trespasser with a telephoto lens? No, my radar wasn't up for that or this particular betrayal. I thought we had built some trust between us.

Dina: We have! I'm just trying to help you, damn it! So stop messing around with this -- this ex-stripper!

Jack: You are in no position to judge nikki or her character. You never will be.

Dina: Darling.

Jack: Don't "darling" me! This is not some kind of game! I am done watching victor control the people around his life.

Dina: Well, maybe you're done, but a man like victor never is. And I fear for you, son. I do.

Jack: Well, fortunately for me, at a very early age, i learned to take care of myself. If victor and I are going to do battle, it's nice to know whose side you're on. I think we're done here, mother. Just leave.

Dina: [ Sobs ] Breathe in. Just breathe.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ] Your little girl has gotten so big!

Kevin: Yeah, portland's been good for her.

Mariah: Daddy's doing something right.

Kevin: For once.

Mariah: Hey, don't say that.

Kevin: Yeah, I'm actually pretty good at the dad thing. Bella's great. She really likes it there.

Mariah: How about you? How's your life?

Kevin: The only thing missing is you.

Mariah: Well, maybe you can come home more often now that you've got this super-secret consulting job that you won't talk about.

Kevin: Tell me about you and the billionaire. How is that going?

Mariah: It's great.

Kevin: Really?

Mariah: Damn it.

[ Chuckles ] You can always see right through me.

Kevin: So, not great?

Mariah: No, it's not that.

Kevin: What is it, then?

Mariah: Complicated.

Kevin: You didn't the whole "attempt at dating" thing like we did, did you?

Mariah: Ha ha! No. No, not even close.

Kevin: So what's wrong? Did devon do something?

Mariah: Besides being the coolest, most terrific guy i have ever dated?

Kevin: You're losing me here.

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

Billy: I'm getting the devil-deal vibes again. Okay, let me rephrase that. Uh, victor, does your plan involve local or international felonies?

Victor: Now we have billy abbott, the upstanding citizen? Were you so upstanding when you got ahold of the jabot plans and previewed them?

Victoria: Okay, excellent points, both of you. Dad, what is your plan?

Victor: You remember when you were still at newman cosmetics, you were in the preparation to develop a line of a new anti-aging skincare?

Victoria: Yes, I do. Project azure.

Victor: Mm-hmm. Exactly that one.

Victoria: What about it?

Victor: I retained the rights to develop and market it. Meanwhile, it has been fully developed, and it's ready to be marketed.

Billy: Hold on, so you dropped out I don't know how much money into this thing, the fountain of youth, and you're sitting on it now? Why would you do that?

Victor: Because I sold the cosmetics division, all right?

Victoria: Okay, so tell me about these products that you've been developing.

Victor: Well, that product is a game changer. It's fantastic. I'll hand it over to you.

Victoria: You will?

Victor: Yeah.

Victoria: What's the catch?

Victor: No catch. No strings attached.

Billy: [ Clears throat ] Okay, let's just say hypothetically the paperwork is done and this product is as remarkable as you say it's gonna be. That's gonna need a major ad campaign with time, money, marketing, branding, all of that.

Victor: Yeah.

Billy: And it's the end of september. That gives us one month before the big holiday push, okay? It doesn't matter what we do. It's not gonna hit the shelves in time. It's a long shot.

Victoria: Yeah, meanwhile, jabot is planning to unleash their new teen line, and they're trying to get early traction, so we're behind the 8 ball. How are we supposed to counter that?

Victor: With speed and with force. You use the new line to knock pompous jack abbott off his horse. And when he lies stunned in the dust, you step on him. You crush him.

Billy: That's a metaphor, right?

Victor: See it any way you want.

Victoria: Dad, would you level with me? This is all about jack and mom, isn't it?

Victor: No. Nothing to do with it.

Ashley: Mother actually admitted to doing this?

Jack: And defended it.

Ashley: It's unbelievable.

Jack: You should have seen her attitude. She acted like she does something like this every week.

Ashley: Do you think it's possible she's actually that jaded?

Jack: Except for her moral indignation over the fact that i am dating a woman who is separated from her husband.

Ashley: I don't think that's it, really. I think she knows victor very well and knows how dangerous he can be.

Jack: So she didn't send these photos to enrage him?

Ashley: [ Sighs ] That doesn't make sense, jack. I think she's trying to protect you. Maybe she thinks it's better if everything's out in the open. It gives victor a chance to salvage his marriage and you a chance to actually live.

Jack: There is nothing to salvage. Nikki is done with him. And I don't need any help with victor. Thank you very much.

Ashley: Mother was wrong to meddle, but she's not wrong about you going down this bad road. You have to stop having an affair with nikki, jack.

Jack: You know what is so ironic about this? There is no affair. I have reconnected with nikki, but we are very definitely not sleeping together. We're two adults who've been put through the wringer who want to believe there's still a chance for happiness in trace amounts. And I'm not gonna let you or victor or dina take that away from me!

Victoria: Dad, I'm sorry that things with you and mom have gotten this bad. I know it can't be easy for you.

Victor: Your mother's fascination with jack abbott has nothing to do with this, all right? It is what it is. I am here now to help other members of my family, so if you don't mind, I will draw up the papers that will transfer the line to brash & sassy, that is if you accept my gift.

Victoria: I just need to be very clear with you right now. The products and the formula will be 100% mine to do with as I see fit, no strings, no contingencies now or later, correct?

Victor: The only condition i want you to comply with is the continued success of brash & sassy. Thank you. Yes, thank you with all my heart. I needed a miracle to push through this year, and you just gave me one. Thank you so much.

Victor: Makes me happy to see you happy. I want you to smile again. Don't become complacent. Jack abbott will come after the company. You know that. And you and I will defeat him. Okay?

Victoria: Thank you.

Kevin: So I can understand the situation better, I'd love to know who we're talking about.

Mariah: That might help.

[ Chuckles ]

Kevin: Is it someone I know?

Mariah: Uh, kind of. I'm not sure. I don'T... I don't exactly think that --

Kevin: Wait, wait, wait, wait. But you do know him, right? He's a real friend, not somebody you met on the internet? Because those guys can be unpredictable.

Mariah: Yeah, I've heard that.

[ Chuckles ] No. Give me some credit. It's not a stranger. It's actually someone who's in my life a lot.

Kevin: Well, who wasn't around all the time when I lived here? Oh, um, that photographer? What's his name?

Mariah: Jordan.

Kevin: Yeah. That guy?

Mariah: No. No, it's not him.

Kevin: Well, this would be going faster if we weren't compiling a list of who it's

not. Hey. I'm your best friend, someone who can keep your secrets. And you know I'm not gonna judge you.

Mariah: I know. That's why I'm not telling anyone else. Only you.

Kevin: But you're not telling me anything. Why is this so hard? I just want to know the guy's name.

Mariah: It's not a guy. It's a woman.

Kevin: Wow. I wasn't expecting that.

Mariah: [ Sighs ] Neither was I.

[ Sighs ]

Kevin: How do you feel about it?

Mariah: I don't know. It's hard to process.

Kevin: Yeah, I'm sure. Who is she?

Mariah: Does it really matter?

Kevin: Depends on how you both feel about it.

Mariah: I don't think she's opposed to it.

Kevin: You don't think? You don't know for sure?

Mariah: I don'T... I don't know. I'M... I'm not used to talking about this stuff, and all of these things that I'm feeling, I-i can't -- I can't seem to wrap my head around it.

Kevin: Because you're afraid.

Mariah: I just... I've never felt like this about anyone before. When I'm around her, I get, um, warm and glowing, and I kind of feel tingly all over. I get really nervous. And... it's the deepest thing I've felt for anyone before, I think, and I don't know how to label it.

Kevin: Why label it?

Mariah: So what happened...

[ Sniffles ] I don't know what came over me. I certainly don't know why I did it, but I...did something. I kissed her.

Kevin: [ Gasps ]

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

Tessa: When I'm at my worst in the harshest light

even when it hurts and I want to hide

when I feel alone in the darkest night

I know you're with me

ready for the fight

ready, you and I, we try

oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

I know you're with me

oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

I know you're with me

Devon: Yeah! Whoo! That was great. Hey! That's what I'm talking about.

Tessa: Hey. I was trying for that buildup part that we talked about.

Devon: Literally the whole song came to life. I loved the take.

Tessa: Thank you for the great suggestion.

Devon: Yeah, it was all you. It really was. I think you're tapping into something really exciting. The whole "girl power" message, the relying on your friends to get you through rough times, it's very compelling.

Tessa: Well, I'm glad you feel that way.

Devon: Yeah. I could tell how personal it is to you.

Tessa: Well, those lyrics are about as personal as it gets.

Ashley: Jack, I need to talk to you. I was trying to wait until ravi found out who was responsible.

Jack: Wait, what are you talking about?

Ashley: We've been hacked. I mean, it's not a true hack, but I was so sure that graham was responsible for it. I went to the gcac to confront him myself.

Jack: What the hell is going on around here?

Ashley: It was an unauthorized download.

Jack: What did they get?

Ashley: R&d files and very confidential information.

Jack: Oh, for --

Ashley: Ravi's trying very hard to find out who did it.

Jack: And what's he found out?

Ashley: Dina's password was used.

Jack: It was graham. That son of a --

Ashley: Well, whoever did this logged in as dina, but they used a different jabot computer. It wasn't her laptop.

Jack: This is felony cyber crime! Get ravi in here now.

[ Phone slams ]

Victor: Oh, madame mergeron.

Dina: Oh, monsieur newman.

Victor: Are you going down?

Dina: Haven't we both sunk as low as we can go?

Victor: [ Chuckles ]

"The young and the restless"

will continue.

Victor: Do I surmise you're distressed a little because you shared your photo album with jack?

Dina: [ Scoffs ] Perceptive as always. But what did you think of it?

Victor: Oh. I appreciated the information and the name on the envelope.

Dina: Hmm. Yes, well, it was a bit impulsive of me.

Victor: You must have some goal in mind.

Dina: Yes. I want jack to back off before there's real problems. Victor.

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Dina: Am I too late?

Victor: [ Chuckles ] I don't intend to go personally after jack.

Dina: Oh, good. Well, uh, my condolences on your separation.

Victor: Not necessary. I enjoy the newfound freedom and independence. And I enjoy having an old friend in town.

Dina: Oh.

[ Elevator bell dings ]

Victor: You have a nice day.

Dina: Thank you.

Kevin: You cannot leave me hanging after that! Did this woman respond to the kiss? Did she run out of the room screaming? What?

Mariah: I think she... didn't dislike it.

Kevin: You don't know for sure?

Mariah: No, I-I don't know. We didn't really get a chance to talk about it. Devon came into the room right afterwards and -- and --

Kevin: What? And he hasn't left your side since? I don't get it. Why wouldn't you tell this woman about how you feel?

Mariah: Because I care about devon so much. Kevin, this is the best relationship I have been in in my entire life with someone intelligent and sensitive, who likes everything about me. We have so much fun together, and our personalities mesh. And so it's only reasonable that I would consider throwing it all away after one kiss with tessa.

Kevin: Tessa? Future indie rock superstar tessa? The same tessa who's dating noah -- tessa?

Mariah: Yes. So clearly you can see why I am so confused. Tessa is with noah. He's crazy about her. And they have a really sweet relationship.

Kevin: You don't want to mess that up.

Mariah: I don't know what's best for them, for devon, for anyone, clearly, myself included.

Kevin: Well, the way you talk about tessa is different from the way I've heard you talk about any guy ever. Sometimes what the heart wants makes no sense. It's why falling in love defies logic. I-I am the perfect example of that. Nobody understood about chloe and me. But I knew that I felt something that I shouldn't ignore. Even though things would have been a hell of a lot easier if i had. Don't go for the easy. The best things are the ones that are hardest to get. Always.

Mariah: Tessa and noah seem pretty solid.

Kevin: Then what could it hurt to talk to her?

Mariah: I don't know what to say.

Kevin: Tell her how you feel. You'll find the words.

Victoria: My dad's getting the paperwork for the new products here by the end of the day, right?

Billy: I don't know the specifics, but he was moving in a hurry, which means we should slow down and think about what we're about to do.

Victoria: You got to be kidding me. You said so yourself. Jabot might launch their new and improved teen line any day now. We're in the race, billy. We are in the race, and it feels really, really good. Don't you think?

Billy: No, no, no, it doesn't, actually. I'm sick to my stomach. A couple weeks ago, your father offered to help, and you said no. Remember that? Now you're accepting a gift-wrapped skincare line? Why you doing that?

Victoria: Because -- because we're desperate, that's why.

Billy: We're not that desperate to work with him. You don't want to do it. I don't want to do it.

Victoria: He offered us salvation on a platter.

Billy: That platter comes with strings attached. You know that just --

Victoria: Billy, I don't want to be lectured about my father, okay? If it weren't for dad helping us, do you know what we'll be doing this christmas? We will be filing for bankruptcy. That's what we'll be doing.

Billy: No, we would be pushing through because that is what we do, okay? I do not want to have the feeling that brash & sassy only exists because he helped us. That's terrifying to me. That makes me sick to my stomach.

Victoria: Okay. [ Sighs ] If he was his old self, I would be worried, too. I would. But -- but he's not. I know what he's doing. This gift isn't to corner us for control.

Billy: Well, then what is it?

Victoria: He's reaching out for comfort and support. Because that's how hurt he is seeing jack and mom getting so close.

Ravi: Jack, I completed deep forensic probes on over 26 jabot computers, all clear, including dina and lauren'S. We should really check yours, as well, just to be thorough, make sure that you haven't been compromised.

Ashley: Okay, whatever you need to do.

Ravi: Okay.

Ashley: Jack, did you hear ravi? He's working very hard to ensure our security.

Jack: Yeah, it's funny you mention that. I was just remembering a rather enormous requisition I signed recently for a state-of-the-art security update. Did you maybe forget to install that?

Ravi: I finished it the day accounting made the purchase. But as I stated on the req form, that protects us against outside attacks. This was definitely an inside job.

Jack: Okay, well, whoever was responsible for this inside job is likely going to sell our most critical information to someone on the outside!

Ashley: Ravi, please excuse my brother's behavior. He's had a hideous day. That explains his rude and obnoxious behavior towards the one person who's working his buns off to make sure that he can fix this.

Ravi: It's fine. I'll resume work and alert you guys to anything relevant.

Jack: Ravi. What ashley said. Forgive me, okay? And give me a name.

Ravi: Got it.

[ Door opens ]

[ Door closes ]

[ Chatter ]

Tessa: You're too good to me.

Mariah: Hey. How's it going?

Tessa: Oh, we're taking a five. We just wrapped a track.

Mariah: Wow. You finished a song already? Two?

Tessa: Yeah.

Mariah: Two songs. No way. Well, it, uh, it sounds like the perfect session.

Tessa: Well, now it is.

Mariah: Your engineer seems really happy.

Devon: We all are.

Mariah: Hey, you!

Devon: Hey. Your girl is killing it.

Mariah: That's what she said. Two songs in the can.

Devon: That's right. And if we could only use the first take of each track, we'd release them as-is.

Mariah: I am so thrilled for the both of you.

Devon: I can't wait for you to hear them. They're perfect. They're exactly what lp streaming needs. And so are you, tessa. I have to get back to work, though. Am I gonna see you later?

Mariah: I'm staying.

Devon: Oh, you're staying for good?

Mariah: Mm-hmm.

Devon: Nice. Good to hear. I'll see ya.

Mariah: See ya.

Tessa: What's wrong? Is this about crystal? Did sharon hear anything, or...?

Mariah: Um...no. There's nothing today. I'm sorry.

Tessa: Okay. I was just afraid it was bad news. At this point, I'll take any news that crystal hasn't fallen off the face of the planet.

Mariah: I know this must be torture for you. Sharon and I feel the same way.

Tessa: Well, it's a lot easier with all the support I've been getting from sharon and scott and noah, too. I just wanted to take that fear and anxiety and turn it into a positive for this performance.

Mariah: Did it work?

Tessa: I-I opened it all up. And I channeled it into the performance, and I think that it took me to a whole nother level.

Mariah: Well, those guys seem to agree.

Tessa: I can't wait for you to hear the tracks. I mean, the first one was the one I showed you at the gym about crystal and all of this.

Mariah: Yeah, I remember. I loved it.

Tessa: Well, good, because, uh, it's also about you.

[ Computer keys clacking ]

Ravi: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: Hey.

Ravi: Hey.

Phyllis: You must know by now I had nothing to do with those hideous crimes.

Ravi: Sorry. What?

Phyllis: My laptop. You got to be done with it by now. You satisfied that I'm innocent?

Ravi: [ Sighs ] No one's been brought to justice yet.

Phyllis: I'll take that as a yes. You look exhausted. Bet they didn't even bring lunch in for you. Why don't we go to zelati's? I'll buy you a few slices, and you can eat them on the way back.

Ravi: Actually, um, I need to speak with jack.

Phyllis: Okay. Tell him to buy you a whole pie. You earned it.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Victor: Kevin, come in.

Kevin: Thanks. Got here as fast as I could. And I wish I had some progress to report, but stealing that much money takes time.

Victor: I have another job for you, kevin. Just as confidential.

Kevin: Is it just as illegal?

Dina: Oh, thank you. You know, I'm just so glad that photo didn't make victor furious enough to go after jack again.

Graham: I knew it wouldn'T. Victor's too powerful to be bothered with some petty payback. And now the most important man in town owes you. It worked out perfectly.

Dina: Oh, but jack was so angry with me.

Graham: He'll get over it. Your children are constantly looking for reasons to be mad with you. It's never-ending.

Dina: Why? Did something else happen?

Graham: Ashley stormed up here earlier convinced I had stolen jabot secrets.

Dina: Oh, good lord.

Graham: Ridiculous. She was unprofessional and hysterical, and it'd be your fault for having trusted me.

Dina: Of course, of course.

Graham: I'm sorry, but she can't keep blaming you because you conceived her with another man. John abbott isn't her father. She needs to accept that and move on.

Dina: Oh, how I wish she could.

Graham: Perhaps this paranoia and vindictiveness is inherited from her dad, whoever he is. You never told me, actually. Who is ashley's biological father?

Victor: So you are clear on what I need you to do?

Kevin: Yeah. You want access to nikki's cellphone and e-mails. Shouldn't be too hard. But can I ask why?

Victor: No, you can'T. None of your business, okay? You just should be concerned with preserving the idyllic life that you have created in portland with your beloved chloe. The world thinks she's dead. Although she is still on a lot of people's mind.

Kevin: Yeah, I-I got that. All right, I'll get right to work on nikki's accounts online, mobile phone -- done.

[ Sighs ] Just as long as you're prepared. You may find things out about nikki you'd rather not know.

Victor: I'm more than prepared for that eventuality.

Mariah: Me? In a song? Wow. That's -- that's, like, the coolest thing ever.

Tessa: Well, I mean, I don't use names, but the lyrics are about how you helped me cope with my sister getting into so much trouble. I owe you that and so much more.

Mariah: I owe you, too, tessa.

Tessa: You owe me? No way. I mean, you're the one doing all the giving. What could you possibly owe me?

Mariah: The truth. About how I feel.

Dina: I'm not sharing the identity of ashley's real father.

Graham: And that's your decision.

Dina: It is.

Graham: No one else'S. I didn't mean to pry.

Dina: Forgiven.

Graham: Thank you.

Dina: Oh, with all the romantic adventures I had back in the day, no one -- no one is going to solve that mystery.

Graham: You're making it hard to resist trying.

Dina: Ah, ah, ah.

Graham: Is he still alive?

Dina: No more discussion, graham. I've said too much already. Shame.

Jack: Great. I hope this means you have fresh, new intel.

Ashley: We are so grateful. What did you find?

Ravi: I found the computer that accessed the confidential r&d files. It was, uh, [Clears throat] -- It belonged to phyllis.

Ashley: Get that bitch out of this building! She needs to be fired today!

Victoria: I don't want to dwell on my dad and his possible motives. I want this company to bounce back better than ever.

Billy: I want the same thing as that.

Victoria: Well, good, because with this generous gift, that's exactly what's gonna happen. Unless jack and his new, improved teen line comes and kills us first.

Billy: That can't happen, okay? Jabot junior cannot hit the shelves. As simple as that.

Victoria: All right, so what are we gonna do to stop it?

Billy: We get creative. And I keep monitoring phyllis' computer if something comes up.

Victoria: Absolutely not!

Billy: Victoria, listen --

Victoria: No. No, we agreed that we are not gonna log back on to the scene of the crime. Using phyllis' computer is too risky.

Billy: Risky's my middle name.

Victoria: No, it's not your middle name. Your middle name is foster. And you've already taken too many chances. You and your magic password are gonna stay away from phyllis' laptop. Damn it, billy. Tell me you're not gonna do it, okay?

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

Tessa: You're like family to me.

Mariah: Family?

Zack: Yes?

Alice: I've got some news you'll want to hear.

Scott: Tell me you found something we can use to crack this sex ring and bring it down.

Jack: They want access to our secrets? Let's give it to them.
