Episode # 11266 ~ Ashley considers her next move; Graham plots revenge; Victoria points the finger at Phyllis.
Provided By SuzanneAshley: Hello? What are you waiting for? Get phyllis in here! Call her out on what she did! And kick her out on her backstabbing adulteress butt!
Ashley: What do you mean, no?
Jack: Her adultery and backstabbing, loathsome as they are, don't enter into this.
Ashley: Okay, jack, she downloaded confidential r&d files, okay? It's called cyber theft, remember?
Ravi: Ashley, I actually --
Ashley: One second. Excuse me, I'm sorry. Please explain to me why you refuse to treat your ex-wife like you would any other criminal.
Jack: Because I am certain phyllis is not our spy.
Ashley: Because you're certain that she's above corporate espionage? I mean, how blind can you be?
Jack: Quite the contrary. My eyes are wide open. I know who did this to us.
Victoria: We agreed. We won't log into the scene of the crime using phyllis' work computer. It's too risky.
Billy: Well, risky's my middle name.
Victoria: No, it's not. Your middle name is foster. We've taken too many chances already. So you and your magic passcode need to stay far away from her laptop, okay? Promise me you won't do it, billy.
Phyllis: Won't do what?
Abby: What are you doing in my father's office?
Scott: What it looks like. I'm leaving a note. Have you seen victor?
Abby: I saw him earlier at his place, but, um -- well, I don't think he'll be coming into the office today.
Scott: Why not?
Abby: Did you happen to see that status report I sent out on my incubator's profits?
Scott: I did. I was impressed with your numbers.
Abby: Hmm. I can't believe it. You actually have the grace to give me a compliment.
Scott: With some advice.
Abby: Oh, here we go.
Scott: The tone wasn't that of an objective report. It read more like self-praise. You may want to pull back on the adjectives next time.
Abby: Mm. Well, you know, I don't recall asking for a journalism lecture, but thanks anyway.
Scott: My pleasure.
Abby: [ Chuckles ]
[ Knocks on door ]
Paul: They told me I'd find you in here, scott.
Abby: Are you arresting him?
Paul: [ Scoffs ] Hello, abby.
Scott: Can you, uh, give us a moment?
Abby: Sure. Bye, paul.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Abby: Hi, zack.
Zack: Hey, gorgeous. Just checking in, as promised.
Abby: Mm, you've been checking in a lot lately.
Zack: Following through on my promise to be more considerate. Showing you how important you are to me.
Abby: And I like it.
Zack: Then, please, let me show you more. Say, dinner tonight, if you're free?
Abby: That's doable. Pick me up at work?
Zack: It's a date. Oh! I got to take that. I'll see you soon.
Alice: Hey, uh, I've got some news you'll want to hear.
Paul: So, I appreciate you coming to me with that lead about the promoter.
Scott: You know, when i recognized that prostitute and the guy was calling her his girlfriend at the underground, i just felt like I had to call you.
Paul: Right, well, you did the right thing, coming to me instead of trying to investigate this again without backup.
Scott: Just tell you found something we can use to crack this sex ring and bring them down.
Mariah: I, um... I need to tell you... I don't know why this is so hard to say. Most of the time I can't shut up.
Tessa: Well, you know, you can say anything to me, right?
Mariah: It's just -- with feelings, I...
Tessa: You, uh, get self-conscious?
Tessa: Well, don'T.
Mariah: I just feel so close to you. You know, close like it's something special.
Tessa: Yeah, I feel the same way.
Mariah: You do?
Tessa: Of course. I mean, without you, my life would be a lot less... well, everything, if you weren't in it.
Tessa: You're like family to me.
Tessa: I don't know where i would be without your support. I mean, helping me through the crystal situation, my music career taking off... I mean, so much is happening, my head is spinning.
Mariah: That's why I, um... I just wanted to tell you that I am behind you 100%, tessa. No matter what.
Devon: Hey, guys. Break's over. It's time to get back to work.
Tessa: Yes, sir.
Devon: Hey. Hey, you all right?
Mariah: Yeah, I'm fine.
Devon: You sure? You look like something's going on with you. What's wrong?
Devon: Talk to me.
Mariah: How much more perfect could my life be with a guy like you in it?
Devon: [ Scoffs ] I don't know, but when I came in here and you turned around, you looked like you were...
Mariah: Oh, no, that -- don't worry about that. I was... I was just thinking about work. I still have a lot to do, actually.
Devon: Oh, okay. Um, well, if you have to take off, I understand, but... if you can stay, that'd be great.
Mariah: Why? I'm not an essential part of the crew.
Devon: Well, you are to me, and to tessa. You bring out the best in my artist, so... if you don't mind, can you stay, please?
Mariah: When you ask like that, how can I say no?
Dina: [ Sighs ] Would you like to go out or something?
Graham: You sure you want to? You don't sound very enthusiastic.
Dina: Well, I'd much rather be working, but as jack is still so furious with me... at least he didn't fire me.
Graham: Perhaps he's expecting you to walk away. Which you won't do.
Dina: Certainly not!
Graham: Of course not. Maybe you can work from your suite, catch up on some reading.
Dina: Well, I could, if ravi hadn't taken my computer.
Graham: Why would he do that?
Dina: Well, he said he needed to check the security settings.
Graham: Ah, to see if he can prove ashley's absurd claim that I stole jabot secrets.
Dina: Well, that's a moot point. You didn't, so there's nothing incriminating to be found.
Graham: Well, then he must be done by now. You could just go by and pick it up.
Dina: And have another round with jack? No, thank you.
Graham: Well, then how about I go back and retrieve it and bring it to you?
Dina: Jack can't stand the sight of you, and ashley's just accused you of corporate theft. Now, why on earth would you volunteer to walk into that lion's den?
Billy: We were just discussing how I have plans to take the kids to the amusement park before it closes for the season.
Phyllis: Well, what's wrong with that? They're your kids, too.
Billy: Yeah, no, of course. It's just, uh... victoria reminded me that the last time that I did this thing, I took them on a bunch of rides, and then ended up... let's just say they got scared.
Victoria: It's just better to wait until next year when they're older.
Billy: Yes, ma'am.
Phyllis: Well, that's more fun for you, anyway.
Billy: I suppose it is, yeah.
Victoria: So, what brings you by?
Phyllis: Dinner plans. Uh, are we thinking about hitting that italian restaurant you've been wanting to go to, or are you working late tonight?
Victoria: No. No, no, no. No overtime necessary. We're good.
Phyllis: Oh. Well, good. Good. Must be nice to have some free time. It's been a while since you could relax around here.
Billy: Yeah, that is true, and all the work has paid off because we are heading in the right direction.
Phyllis: Sounds like. That was a heck of a spike in your sales numbers at fenmore'S.
Victoria: Yes, um, it was. We're lucky to have such loyal customers.
Billy: Jack sure has some interesting theories about why those numbers are up. In my opinion, he's overthinking it.
Phyllis: How do you explain it?
Billy: Simple. The public knows what they want, and right now, they want brash & sassy, not jabot. He's just gonna have to accept that.
Jack: Billy is the one who stole that information from us.
Ashley: Billy would never betray us like that.
Jack: Billy stole my wife. He's capable of quite a lot, believe me.
Ashley: Okay, you've got a very skewed perception when it comes to our brother. That's why you came up with this ridiculous conclusion.
Jack: You're doing the same thing with phyllis, only you're wrong.
Ashley: Well, then, I guess we'll have to agree to disagree until we get more information about this breach.
Ravi: I don't think it was phyllis, either.
Ashley: Why not?
Ravi: The other day, she mentioned how she thinks victoria has a mole at jabot.
Ashley: Well, maybe she's just using that as a ploy, you know? A way to put it off of her and get onto everybody else.
Ravi: It was really bugging her, how victoria could have found out about parker beauty, jack's plan to showcase the new line by pushing brash & sassy out of fenmore'S. At the time, that information hadn't left these walls, or so we thought, so phyllis asked me to investigate. Ashley, why would she do that knowing she'd be implicated as soon as I accessed her computer?
Jack: I couldn't agree more. If phyllis wanted to play saboteur, she has easy access to any number of jabot computers and the skills to do it undetected. Billy has easy access to one jabot-issued computer -- phyllis' laptop. And we all know that billy and victoria are scrambling to fight their way back to the top.
Ashley: I just -- I mean, jabot is our father's legacy. How could billy do such a thing?
Jack: Well, you'll have to ask billy that, but I think the evidence speaks for itself.
Ashley: You said dina's password was used?
Ravi: That's correct.
Jack: Oh, yeah, that straightens up why billy was so eager to befriend dina. You know, I was confused at first, but obviously it was a tactical maneuver. No, he wanted to take advantage of mother, somehow get access to her password, and then... he took advantage of her the same way he did with phyllis.
Ashley: Do you think it's possible that maybe victoria pushed him into this, like it was some kind of a test?
Jack: Whoever planned it, billy is the one who acted on it, and then victoria came to me asking for a détente, obviously part of their cover-up. Well, given the latest turn of events...
Ravi: We'll need a new firewall installed.
Jack: No. No, don't do that.
Ravi: Excuse me?
Jack: They want access to our secrets, let's give it to them.
Scott: You got nothing from irv west's credit card?
Paul: Well, we knew it was a long shot at best.
Scott: Yeah, an item marked "scuzzy human traffickers" on his monthly statement would have been handy, though.
Paul: That would have been nice. Unfortunately, all irv's charges were legit. Hotel, car rental, underground. No strange company names. Nothing suspicious that could lead to this guy's arrest, or whoever he was working with.
Scott: But he was at the club with natalia, who we know has connections with tessa's sister. Somewhere, there's got to be a link. I mean, any way in that we can follow the money and bust the guys at the top.
Paul: These guys are way too smart to leave a paper trail.
Scott: Irv would have paid cash for his, uh, booking of his escort du jour.
Paul: Well, he could have used digital currency, too. I mean, that's hard to trace.
Scott: Yeah. Damn. I mean, we know these young women are being exploited, but how do we stop it?
Paul: We will get it done. This is far from over. Chris' sex trafficking investigation is ongoing, and i told her everything you shared with me about natalia.
Scott: It's convenient to have the district attorney in the loop.
Paul: So, scott... can I assume that you will continue to share with me with whatever you dig up?
Scott: Count on it. Thank you for the update, paul.
Paul: All right. I appreciate it. Stay in touch.
Scott: Of course. You, too. Were you lurking out there?
Abby: No. But why did the chief of police need to see you?
Scott: It's not your business.
Abby: [ Chuckles ] But, you see, if it has anything to do with newman or something you're working on for newman, then it is my business.
Alice: So, natalia is getting a lot of requests.
Zack: We could use 100 girls like her.
Alice: What about crystal?
Zack: She needs to be kept away.
Alice: For how long?
Zack: Until I say otherwise.
Alice: All right, but we're missing out on a big moneymaker.
Zack: If natalia's there, put her on the phone.
Alice: Yeah. She's here. Hold on a sec. The boss wants to talk to you.
Zack: Natalia. I'm proud of you. I just heard you're my number-one girl.
Natalia: Get bonus?
you know how it is.
That money's for everyone.
Natalia: But you promise.
Zack: Yeah, let's not make this a problem, okay? You don't want to join crystal, do you?
Zack: Good girl. Bye, now.
Natalia: [ Sighs ]
Zack: Don't let them think
they're entitled to any of this
Alice: [ Sighs ] Understood.
Ashley: So you're gonna allow victoria and billy to continue to access our system. That's your plan?
Jack: And it will work as long as they don't know we're onto them.
Ashley: Right. I think we need to put that firewall in place.
Jack: Yeah, don't you even move.
Ashley: Okay, jack, so what information are you gonna allow them to have?
Jack: All of it. Only I will decide what information brash & sassy gets.
Ravi: A decoy.
Jack: Exactly. They will use this information to their detriment, and we will come out on top.
Ashley: More deceit. More games. Exactly what we need.
Jack: Do you want to bring brash & sassy down or not?
Ashley: Just like I would any other company, jack!
Jack: Fine, then you will be okay with this plan. Ravi, I don't want a word of what was said here to leave this room. I'm telling you that as your C.E.O.
Ashley: Mr. C.E.O., I'm going on record as saying I don't agree with your plan. It's gonna blow up in your face!
Jack: Duly noted.
Ravi: I'm worried, too, jack. Leaving ourselves open to brash & sassy -- allegedly -- that could corrupt our technical infrastructure even further.
Jack: Whatever happens, you will not be blamed. As a matter of fact, I am offering you a sizeable bonus for your discretion and for discovering this breach in the first place.
Ravi: It's -- it's not about the money.
Jack: As upset as I know you are with me right now, I can only imagine you're even sadder about what billy has done to us.
Ashley: I'm disappointed in both of you, that you've allowed this to escalate to this point, jack. You never should have gone after our brother and the company he works for this viciously!
Jack: What about how he's come after me, how he's come after us?
Ashley: Well, obviously he shouldn't have retaliated! I'm well aware of the fact that he's crossed a line!
Jack: At least now you know where his loyalties lie. And it's not with you, it's not with our father's company, it's not with phyllis. Billy's success alongside victoria is the only thing that matters to him now.
Victoria: Will you excuse me? I have to make a call.
Phyllis: I'm very happy you have free time later.
Billy: Me, too. I'm looking forward to our evening.
Phyllis: Mm, chianti and caprese.
Billy: A perfect way to end the work day.
Phyllis: Okay. I'll see you in a few hours.
Billy: Okay. Listen, real quick -- earlier, when you brought up the numbers at fenmore's, what's jack thinking about all this? Is he still making noise about them?
Phyllis: Your brother is always gonna analyze your tactics, you know that.
Billy: Yeah, but what about in the moment? Right now, what's he thinking?
Phyllis: [ Laughing ] He cannot prove that you did anything wrong. So he is putting all of his energy into making the parker beauty line a huge success.
Billy: Well, that's what i would do. If he was a smart guy, he would use his relationship with fenmore's to his advantage.
Phyllis: Even if I knew all of the specifics about that, i couldn't divulge them.
Billy: I wouldn't expect you to. But I would hope that you would remind lauren that her bottom line at fenmore's is in good shape because of brash & sassy.
Phyllis: I don't have influence over lauren, okay? But trust me -- she's a big fan. We both should get back to work, okay?
Billy: See you in a little bit.
Victoria: Ah. Yeah, let's just do it on a wednesday. Okay, that sounds great.
[ Sighs ]
Ashley: You know, I can imagine phyllis or graham doing something like this to our company, but billy?
Ravi: Yeah, he and jack have been at it for a while.
Ashley: Oh, they've been feuding off and on forever, but see, they'd always realize that they were doing something stupid by this behavior and they'd end up forgiving each other.
Ravi: That could still happen.
Ashley: Yeah, I don't know. I don't think so. Not this time. Oh, I'm sorry, you're trying to work. I'll let you go.
Ravi: You know what? Done and sent.
Ravi: Look, I really wish i could make things better.
Ashley: What do you mean? You do. Is there something you wanted to tell me?
Ravi: I didn't want to give it to you before because it seemed insensitive when you were upset.
Ashley: Okay, what is it?
Ravi: Well, since our security issue is resolved, i wanted to give you the information you asked for about graham's mother.
Ashley: When will you have it?
Ravi: I have it right now.
Ashley: Are you serious?
Ravi: I did a search in the genoa county birth records, and this came up immediately.
Ashley: Oh, my god. Her birth certificate.
Ravi: For one myrna bloodworth, born right here in gc memorial.
Ashley: No, wait, wait, wait. So bloodworth was her maiden name and graham chose to use it.
Ravi: You know, it's not that unusual.
Ashley: Well, then it was quite unusual. I wonder if myrna had, like, a messy divorce, or something.
Ravi: She could have been a single mother.
Ashley: Well, except that graham said that his parents were together until his father had left, but of course, he could have been lying. You can't believe a word out of his mouth. What about graham's birth certificate?
Ravi: Didn't show up on the records.
Ashley: Surrounding counties?
Ravi: I was thorough.
Ashley: Yeah, it's one of your best qualities. Have you noticed, the more answers we get about graham bloodworth, it only leads to many more questions?
Dina: For you to insist on going back to jabot will only stir up animosity.
Graham: A quick in-and-out. I'll fetch your computer and leave.
Dina: Well, what about jack and ashley?
Graham: They'll get the message that we won't be cowed by their false accusations and suspicions.
Dina: Oh, I see, a "quick in-and-out" will accomplish all of that, hmm?
Graham: You know, I wish your children were kinder to you.
Dina: Well, so do I.
Graham: But it's ashley's behavior that I'm disappointed with the most.
Graham: Well, she seemed more open than jack. For a while, she gave me the impression that she accepted me in your life, cared that you were happy, and had forgiven you a great deal. But now it's clear that her deep-seeded anger where you're concerned, which stems from her learning that john abbott isn't her father is something...
Dina: Why do you keep bringing that up?
Graham: Ashley's paternity?
Dina: I thought I made myself clear time and time again. I never should have brought it up in the first place.
Graham: Dina, my dear, you're stressing over nothing. I will never violate your confidence. It's not as if I can reveal who ashley's real father is anyway.
Dina: Ashley's real father is john abbott, and always will be. I'll see you when you get back.
[ Door slams ]
Phyllis: Oh, hey. Did you zero in who downloaded the confidential files?
Jack: Another emergency averted.
Phyllis: Good. Ravi tracked them down. And you've filed charges?
Jack: No, what I meant was it was a false alarm.
Phyllis: No, I don't buy that for a second.
Billy: That was a long call.
Victoria: Well, my call ended a while ago. I've been sitting out there debating something.
Billy: And I want to hear about that, but come here for a second...
Victoria: I need to get this out. I told myself that I wasn't going to say anything because i didn't want to be that person, the ex who's always bringing up negative things, and...
Billy: What did I do now?
Victoria: You haven't been listening to me, billy.
Billy: I have been...
Victoria: And I can't let it slide this time because it's too important. We've got too much at stake right now, and after hearing your conversation with phyllis earlier...
Billy: Did I say something --
Victoria: This is about her. Look, I broached this issue with you before, but you wouldn't hear, but now you have to listen. I'm convinced that she's working with jack and against us.
"The young and the restless"
Abby: There's got to be more to paul's visit than some report on some guy's credit card purchases.
Scott: You won't let this go, will you? Paul and I were discussing research for this series I'm writing about sex trafficking, but I didn't learn anything useful.
Abby: I'm sorry to hear that.
Scott: Yeah, it's just frustrating. I can't get any traction on this thing, and it's --
Abby: That won't last long. Look, I might not be a big fan of your methods, but I know how tenacious you are, and you won't stop until you get what you need for the story --
Scott: The story's the least of it -- I mean, people's lives are at stake!
Abby: If you would let me finish... I was gonna say you won't stop until you get what you need for the story, and also to rescue those poor victims that are in that horrific situation.
Abby: Don't let the compliment go to your head. I just happen to appreciate your commitment to this particular cause.
Scott: I'll try and contain myself.
Abby: Mm. Zack.
Zack: Hope I'm not interrupting.
Scott: [ Scoffs ]
Alice: You were upset by what zack said earlier, weren't you? Hey. Everything will be all right. You like it here, don't you? I mean, it's much better than where you grew up. I like you, natalia. So does zack. That's why we take such good care of you girls. Why we've given you a home.
Natalia: Still. It's not same without crystal. She was my friend. Is she okay?
Alice: You bet.
Natalia: Where is she?
Alice: Crystal's safe. She's in a nice place, and i hope to see her soon.
[ Kitchen timer sounds ] Oh! Food's ready. I'll be back in a jiff.
Devon: Yeah! Whoo! Hey, hey!
Devon: That song had number-one written all over it.
Tessa: Aww, thanks. I'm glad it turned out okay.
Mariah: Okay? You took us along for the ride. Everything you put in that song, we were right there with you. It was amazing.
Devon: It really was, and we're gonna work on finishing the mix on those and nothing else until they're finished.
Tessa: Wow, I just can't believe you're moving so fast.
Devon: Well, yeah, there's no reason not to. I want to get your ep streaming as soon as possible, capitalize on the popularity of your first song, especially since irv's gonna be booking you all over the midwest, you know? I'm really happy he got to come see you last night.
Tessa: Me, too. He was more helpful than expected.
Tessa: Um, excuse me.
Devon: Yeah, sure.
Graham: Dina's children. Did you know any of them when brent worked at the country club?
Myrna: I knew who they were, but the staff and their families were not allowed to mingle with the members. A rule that brent chose to ignore -- repeatedly.
Graham: Dina mentioned she had multiple affairs while she was married to john.
Myrna: Understatement! She was the town tramp. Why are you asking?
Graham: Dina told me ashley is not john abbott's biological child, and it blindsided me. I was surprised you didn't mention it.
Myrna: This is the first I've heard of such a thing. It's -- are you sure it's true?
Graham: I have no reason not to believe dina. She made me promise never to reveal it.
Myrna: Of course she did. That lying, selfish bitch.
Graham: I intend to get more details.
Myrna: You do that. And stay focused, graham. Don't let dina or any of the abbotts derail what you've worked so hard to achieve. That woman destroyed our family. We lost everything because of her. It's time to get our payback.
Graham: We will. I promise you that. I'll talk to you soon. Bye.
Ravi: You know, maybe graham wasn't born in genoa city, and myrna came back with him when he was a child.
Ashley: Well, if you discount what graham said about being raised by both his parents, then it would make myrna's comings and goings a lot more logical.
Ravi: Maybe she gave birth out of wedlock.
Ashley: That would have been a huge stigma at that time. Hey, what about the --
Ravi: School records!
Ravi: I'll check those right now.
Ashley: I have to get a complete picture when I go back to dina. Because when I told her that graham had been lying about his mother being dead, I mean, she wanted nothing to do with anything negative.
Ravi: You need more ammunition.
Ashley: I do. Then hopefully dina will realize that graham bloodworth is not the man she believes him to be.
Ashley: Oh, no, is that the time? I have a meeting I have to get to and somehow pretend that everything is normal around here.
Ravi: Wait. Your computer.
Ashley: Oh! Yeah. I might need that.
Ashley: Thanks for everything.
Ravi: Of course.
Ashley: I'm gonna check in with you a little later, okay? And see what you found out about mr. Bloodworth.
Ravi: I look forward to it.
Ashley: Okay. Bye. What are you doing here?
Graham: I was hoping I'd run into you.
Graham: I came to pick up dina's computer, and I assume ravi's confirmed by now it wasn't used for any malevolent purpose. And along with the laptop, I'd appreciate you acknowledging the truth.
Ashley: Oh! About what?
Graham: Once again, you thought the worst of me and, once again, you were wrong.
Jack: I don't know how many ways I can say it. We never got to defcon 1. All is well.
Phyllis: Ravi was certain that someone managed an unauthorized download. He was so certain that he confiscated all of our computers. Now, how have we moved from code red to chill?
Jack: When it comes to computers, ravi is as close as we get to a perfect man, but he is not infallible. The good news is he discovered what really happened.
Phyllis: Which was?
Jack: Ravi installed a highly sensitive firewall that mistook a legitimate login for an intrusion.
Phyllis: Okay, so it looked like an attack, it caused panic like an attack, but you're telling me it was not an attack?
Jack: I believe ravi called it a "virtual figment."
Phyllis: So that's it? That's the end of it? There's no chance of real intrusion? Because if someone did get into our system and access our private information, that will not be good for fenmore's or jabot.
Jack: I'm not worried. So you can take it off your mind.
Victoria: Why won't you listen to me, billy?
Billy: Because you're out of line, victoria. You and phyllis have personal issues.
Victoria: Yeah, a mutual dislike and distrust.
Billy: So you go from that to accusing her of colluding with jack to take down brash & sassy?
Victoria: Do you know how much she hates how devoted you are to this company? She despises the long hours that we put in together. Her life would be so much happier if this company and your job were dissolved.
Billy: You know what, maybe that's true, but --
Victoria: You know what, let's just look at the facts. She pushed benjamin hochman in my direction knowing that he wanted to get his hands on brash & sassy.
Billy: She set you up on a date, okay? So what?
Victoria: With a well-known corporate raider! Okay, let's just set that aside. Let's look at some more recent history. Phyllis told you that jack suspected that I had a spy at jabot.
Billy: I am spying on jabot.
Victoria: It was a smokescreen! Do you really think she gave you that little tidbit of information because she was concerned, or because she wanted to give you a heads up? She wanted to find out if you knew who the spy was, that's why! Just like when she was up here earlier, phishing around about our great sales numbers at fenmore's and how we managed to pull them off. Is it really that mind-blowing of a surprise that jack was running the same game with me at the club last night?
Billy: Hold on a second. Did you ever think that maybe she's playing you to get under your skin?
Victoria: You are the one who's getting played right now. Did you catch how she avoids talking about jabot's plans with fenmore's?
Billy: Victoria, she --
Victoria: If you say that this is because of phyllis' high ethical standards, you can save it because she doesn't have any!
Billy: Time out. You are talking about my girlfriend.
Victoria: Oh, thank you so much for reminding me. She didn't seem so loyal and loving when you asked her to put in a good word with lauren, did she? I mean, she said that her opinion would hold no weight, and those two are best friends, billy. So of course -- of course lauren could be swayed if phyllis talked up brash & sassy, but she wouldn't do it! Do you want to know why?
Victoria: Because she wants us to fail! Just like jack.
Billy: You're wrong.
Victoria: Look, I understand that you want to believe that phyllis is on your side. But when you put everything together, there's a pattern. Just take a step back and look at it. Be objective. Can you see it now?
Zack: Sorry to break up your business meeting.
Scott: You didn'T. You two have fun doing whatever it is you plan on doing.
Abby: [ Sighs ]
Zack: What was that for?
Abby: He can't even say goodbye without sounding condescending. I mean, he always has these barbed comments. You should have heard him earlier. He was criticizing me on this report that I sent out. Granted, what he's working on is a little bit more important in the grand scheme of things, but I wish he would just give me some credit for once.
Zack: What's he working on?
Abby: An exposé on sex trafficking. Excuse me. Abby newman.
Devon: It was a great session!
Devon: How about I take you ladies out for a celebratory drink?
Tessa: That's so nice of you, but would it be okay if I stole mariah for a, uh, some girl time?
Mariah: Yeah, uh, it's been a long day. We have a lot to catch up on.
Devon: Sure. Sure. Enjoy yourselves. See ya.
Mariah: What's going on?
Tessa: A text. It's got to be from natalia.
Graham: I'm happy to wait as long as you need me to.
Ashley: Well, you might want to download "war and peace" to keep yourself occupied.
Graham: How long can it possibly take?
Ashley: Graham, cyber security has not yet released my mother's computer. And if they had, I wouldn't be handing it over to you. You see, you don't work at jabot, my mother does. Oh, and just for the record, I'm not gonna be admitting to any wrongdoing where you're concerned. Ever.
[ Cellphone rings ] Ashley. Oh, really? It's done? No, actually, I'm right down the hall. I'll pick it up now. Thanks. See yourself out.
Victoria: [ Sighs ]
Billy: I still don't see what you see, victoria.
Victoria: Billy, come on.
Billy: Listen to me. But I can understand your perspective, okay? I can understand why you might think that phyllis would be working with jack to take us down. When you two are together, you don't exactly get her best side. But for the record, I think that your accusation is out of line.
Victoria: With everything that I just laid out for you?
Billy: She wouldn't hurt me like that, okay? You don't know her the way I do. Now, you need to drop this before it comes between us and it slows down everything that we're trying to accomplish here.
Victoria: [ Sighs ] Okay. I'll stop.
Billy: There's only one person that we need to focus on and for one reason only.
Billy: Yes. Because he is gonna stop at nothing to take us out.
Victoria: Right. We just need to play this really carefully. I never got your promise that you wouldn't log on to phyllis' computer again.
Billy: Because I can't make that promise.
Victoria: Would you stop being so stubborn? If someone upstairs realizes...
Billy: I'm not gonna get caught. If I do it again. We finally have jabot on the ropes right now, okay? We got the edge on them. And I'm gonna do everything i can to make sure that we hold onto that.
Phyllis: Well, that's good, and I'm very glad that the computer thing is a much ado about nothing.
Jack: Yeah. So am I. The thought that someone with a real connection to this company with access to a jabot computer would use it to do real harm to this company... it's a breach of trust.
Phyllis: Yeah. Unforgivable.
Next on "the young and the restless"...
Lily: You and I need to discuss our future tonight.
Zack: I'm gonna say something crazy. I think we should join them for dinner.
Abby: [ Sighs ]
Tessa: I finally have a plan. I don't think you're gonna like it.
