Jordan: What the hell did you do to me?
Hilary: What could I possibly do to you? "Delusional" little me and my "vanity-project show"?
Jack: Hello, there.
Victoria: Well, hello to you, too, jack.
Jack: So, is life at the new, improved brash & sassy as invigorating as you hoped it would be?
Victoria: I am seeing things with a whole new clarity now that I've eliminated the cheap, poison toxins out of my products.
Jack: And your company is finally billy-free. Cleaned up. Detoxed. Ready for the next chapter. Good for you. I'm sure the fda will back off on you now. I mean, you've been nothing but compliant to this point. Even when they asked to analyze every product in your line. To me, that is a waste of taxpayer dollars.
Victoria: [ Sighs ] Thank you. That is so thoughtful and so sweet of you. And it's exactly what I needed to hear right now.
Jack: Um, don't mention it.
Victoria: And since you're being so generous, I have a favor to ask you. Don't worry, it's something that will actually benefit both of our companies.
Nikki: Look, regardless of how independent victoria is, we are still her parents. And as much as she claims she's taken care of all the problems with her company, I don't know if I trust her. Do you?
Victor: Knowing the potential for what lies ahead will make her rally. Especially now that billy abbott is out of the way.
Nikki: Yes, I know. You are delighted that she fired him. But I'm not so sure that was a good idea.
Victor: Wait a minute. Are you forgetting that he jeopardized her health? And that he almost jeopardized the health of thousands of potential customers of brash & sassy?
[ Cellphone chimes ]
Nikki: I know. I know he messed up. But [Scoffs] He was so devoted to her at the company. Now she has no one, and I am worried about her. Hello? Are you listening to me?
Victor: Chelsea sent me a text of christian and connor in their halloween costumes. Do you want to see?
Nikki: I don't want to see. I don't know why you don't seem to be upset about this. You're not -- not at all.
Victor: Because perhaps i have more faith in victoria than you do.
Nikki: Maybe it's the fact that, if victoria fails in business, it gives you some kind of sick pleasure. I mean, my god. Nicholas' club burned down to the ground this week. Our kids have had a hell of a week.
Victor: Our children are adults. They can handle the situation, all right? Don't you worry about it.
Nikki: Well, I guess we're done.
Victor: And trust me -- victoria will handle it all.
Nikki: I wish I was as convinced as you are. Oh. Hello, there, abby. How are you?
Abby: Oh. Hi. Well, she didn't seem too happy. And neither was that text you just sent me. "My office now."
Victor: I'm just reading the latest numbers coming in that pertain to designdate.
Victor: They're spectacular. Take a look.
Abby: [ Laughs ]
Victor: Look at that.
Abby: Are these accurate?
Victor: 100%. This is incredible. This is you.
Abby: Thank you. I'm just so pleased that it's taking off.
[ Laughs ]
Victor: We're gonna celebrate it. We're gonna have a party. Top of the tower.
Victor: We're gonna announce to the world that the newmans are back.
Abby: [ Laughing ]
Jack: Okay, forgive me. How is letting brash & sassy out of its lease going to benefit us? Either of us?
Victoria: Well, come on. I mean, it's no secret that you never really wanted us in the building in the first place. And ashley's gonna get her lab back.
Jack: Okay. If that's how you feel, consider the lease forgotten.
Victoria: Oh! Thank you.
Jack: Forgive me for asking. You don't seem terribly upset about losing your company.
Victoria: Well, who says that I'm losing my company?
Jack: You're walking away from your office and the lab. I...
Victoria: You know what, jack? I'm so, so sorry. I have to run. I'll see you. Thank you. Oh, thank you very much.
Scott: Morning, victoria. Quick question for you.
Victoria: Well, it would have to be very quick.
Scott: Any truth to the rumor that victor's saving brash & sassy from bankruptcy?
Victoria: Do you mind telling me the source of this rumor?
Scott: You know the drill with sources in journalism. But I can tell you this -- it did come from a respected business journo' I know.
Victoria: Oh, that's not very helpful.
Scott: She thinks she has a big scoop here with this, and e-mailed me for more details. Of which I have none.
Victoria: Did she claim how she found this scoop?
Scott: Supposedly, she claims it comes from intel from inside newman enterprises. And I assure you, it wasn't me, because I know nothing.
Victoria: Good. Keep it that way.
Victoria: Don't say a word of this to anyone.
Jordan: Unbelievable. You get upset about something that I said in a private argument, so you decide to -- to trash my character and my rep in public.
Hilary: I am not responsible for what you did or are continuing to do with those fake I.D.S. And as for your reputation, that is on you. See, all I do is report the facts.
Jordan: In your signature tabloid style. Imply the worst and let your gossip-starved audience fill in the blanks.
Hilary: Oh, yes. And that is exactly what they are all doing. Most of them women, and they are cramming my mailbox full of information with all of your different identities. Oh, and look. Some of them have been waiting quite a lo time to find out who the real jordan wilde is.
Jordan: Are you trying to set a speed record for -- for making enemies? Because you really don't want to make one out of me, hilary.
Hilary: Is that supposed to be a threat?
Jordan: Call it whatever you want.
Hilary: Yeah, because after your last one, I have zero regrets about reporting on your personal life. Telling me that you're gonna plaster my nude photos on the web. That was tacky, cruel, and a just plain lie. I scoured the web. I didn't find copies of my compromising photos anywhere. Admit it, jordan. It was just a bluff.
Jordan: Maybe you're right. Maybe it was all a bluff. I could never wreck someone's life so easily. But you had no hesitation on wrecking mine. Or committing a felony break-in and stealing my personal items.
Hilary: I doubt that you're gonna press charges.
Jordan: Don't be too sure about that.
Hilary: Not with the other fascinating things I found. Enough for a whole week's worth of juicy, reputation-wrecking reports.
Abby: Zack is gonna be so excited when I tell him you're hosting a party for designdate.
Victor: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Now, I know that zack had something to do with it, but i don't want that to detract from the fact that you are the one who spearheaded all this. You drove this whole project to a successful conclusion.
Abby: Well, however you'd like it, I'm good with that. I am just so flattered and excited.
[ Knock on door ]
Victoria: Dad, we have to talk.
Abby: Oh, you know what? First things first. Dad is throwing me a party tomorrow night at top of the tower to celebrate designdate's latest figures, which are -- da, da-da, da-da! -- Right here.
Victoria: Wow. That's great. Good for you.
Victor: Sweetheart, why don't you spread the good news among all the guests on the list?
Abby: I would love to. You know, victoria, I really hope that you can make it. Even with your company in so much trouble. Bye!
Victor: Well done, my sweetheart.
Victoria: I just ran into scott. He wanted me to confirm a rumor that you're saving brash & sassy.
Victor: How the hell did he know?
Victoria: He said the leak came from inside newman.
Victor: We were not gonna release this until you and I had put a positive spin on all this.
Victoria: And make it look like daddy wasn't swooping in to save his failing daughter's butt. This isn't good for either one of us.
Victor: Inform the P.R. Department to get in here within five minutes.
Lily: Cane. Wake up!
Cane: [ Sighs ] Lily -- lily...
Lily: It's juliet.
Cane: What happened?
Lily: They rushed her into surgery.
Lily: I don't know. They didn't say. But it looked really serious.
Cane: [ Sighs ] Oh, god. What are you doing here? You didn't have to stay.
Lily: Trust me, I didn't want to, but I couldn't walk away.
Cane: You know you and i are supposed to be divorced right now, right?
Lily: Yeah. Michael said that our case is legally on hold.
Cane: So, what are we gonna do?
Victor: I recall I made it clear to all of you when you were hired at newman enterprises that there are two things I value the most -- loyalty and trust. Since none of you are willing or able to tell me how this very sensitive information was leaked to the public, you're fired as of now. Vacate the building.
Victoria: Do you realize what you've just done?
Victor: What the hell did you want me to do?
Victoria: We are in the middle of a large crisis, and now we have no one to help us solve it.
Victor: So, you want to be C.O.O., Chief operating officer of newman enterprises? You want me to sign this contract? Hmm? So, C.O.O., What do we do now?
Lily: Okay, so, I have the cafeteria menu. There's oatmeal, a mushroom omelet -- egg whites are available -- gluten-free waffles, sugar-free maple syrup, um...
Cane: No, I'm okay.
Lily: Cane, you know how you get if you don't have breakfast.
Cane: What's happening with you and me?
Lily: If it'll give you one less thing to stress about, then... we should... put the divorce on hold until we get some news. Good news. Okay?
Lily: Dad. Hey.
Lily: You didn't have to come here. Although I'm glad you're here.
Neil: Rough stuff. It is. I wanted to make sure you were okay. Both of you.
Neil: How's juliet?
Cane: Uh, we don't know. They just rushed her into emergency surgery. You know, what I can't get over is, for so long, I just wished the baby didn't exist. And now I just want him to make it.
Placenta previa's in hemorrhage, and we have disseminated intravascular coagulation. Prep for an emergency c-section.
Neil: Uh, lily, I am so sorry. This is work. Someone wants me to be somewhere as soon as possible.
Lily: No, that's fine, dad. I'm -- I'm okay. I promise.
Neil: You sure? 'Cause I'll stay if you need me to. I mean...
Lily: It's fine.
Neil: Okay. I want you to call me the second you hear anything.
Neil: All right?
Lily: Love you.
Neil: I love you more. You take care, okay?
Neil: All right.
Cane: Hey. Bye. So, the, um... the nurse gave me juliet's things, and she suggested that I, um, try and get in contact with her family. I remember she told me about her parents once. Um... her mom died a few years ago, but her dad's still around. Here it goes.
Jordan: Whatever it is you think that you have on me, lay off.
Hilary: Why do you sound so afraid, jordan? I mean, what did you call me? "Pathetic." "A joke." I wouldn't think that somebody like that could intimidate the great jordan wilde. Or whoever it is that you're pretending to be these days.
Jordan: You are something, you know that? And this right here, this takes pathetic to a whole new level. When I walk out that door, I will still have my life and a job that you can't touch.
Hilary: Oh, I would not count on that last one.
Jordan: For real? 'Cause victoria, she can't stand you, and she'll take my word over yours any day of the week.
Hilary: You really need to catch up on your "hilary hour." Boss lady newman's on-air collapse was the death knell for brash & sassy.
Jordan: Not according to victoria. She has a big comeback planned, and she already told me that I'm a part of it.
Hilary: Well, good luck with that. Fortunately for me, I don't need a comeback, and I'm gonna be working very hard to make sure that I never do. So, that means I'm busy. So buzz off.
Nikki: Well, it's never too early to upset someone, is it?
Hilary: Not specially-invited guests like yourself.
Nikki: Call it morbid curiosity. Or we could just jump past all that and you tell me what you want.
Hilary: I want to talk about these.
Nikki: [ Laughs ] Oh, hilary. I am sorry. Were you expecting a tidy blackmail sum so that these wouldn't show up on your show? Because victor's already seen them.
Hilary: I promise you, blackmail was the last thing on my mind.
Nikki: What was the first thing? More importantly, why should I care?
Cane: I'm truly sorry you feel that way, mr. Helton. Yeah. Well, goodbye.
Lily: What happened? What did he say?
Cane: He didn't want to know about her.
Lily: What? She's having emergency surgery and her father won't come down here?
Cane: She always talked so highly of him. I don't know. Something must have happened. It's like he's disowned her.
Lily: His own daughter?
Cane: And his grandson. I-I -- I couldn't imagine behaving that way if my kids needed me.
Lily: Cane, you know what this means. Juliet and the baby are gonna need you more than ever.
Hilary: The pictures are yours to keep. The originals, you can find on this flash drive.
Nikki: I still don't understand what you're after here.
Hilary: Absolutely nothing. I simply came across some information that I thought you'd be interested in. Do you know who took those photos?
Nikki: Actually, I do. Jack's mother was behind the whole thing.
Hilary: Yes, but I am talking about the person who was paid for this dirty deed. That would be jordan wilde.
Nikki: Name sounds familiar.
Hilary: You may have seen him skulking by as you were just arriving. He takes a lot more pride in his job as your daughter's pet in-house photographer at brash & sassy.
Nikki: You know, as interesting as this is, I still don't really understand why you're sharing it with me.
Hilary: Simple. It's much better to have a fan than an enemy.
Neil: It's always good to see you, victor. Good morning. I didn't expect to see you here. But now that I'm starting to piece it all together, I can't say that I'm entirely surprised.
Victoria: Before we begin, i hope you don't mind signing a nondisclosure agreement.
Neil: [ Laughs ] Always official, you two.
Victoria: Here you go.
Neil: Thank you for the pen. All right. So, I'm, uh, guessing this little arrangement is how you suddenly paid off the loan i gave you in full.
Victor: Now, neil, as to why you're here. We want to announce the return of brash & sassy to newman enterprises, but we want to be in control of the message.
Victoria: If we wait, there will be plenty of news agencies that will want to put a negative spin on the merger, and that would be very damaging for newman enterprises and brash & sassy. Someone's already tried to leak the news.
Neil: Dare I even ask where the newman P.R. Team went?
Victor: They're out. We want you to step in.
Victoria: Because we heard that hamilton-winters recently acquired power communications. Although we're more interested in your own expertise.
Neil: I got to tell you, I'm very flattered that you thought of me, and I would love to help. Sounds intriguing. But brash & sassy took one hell of a hit, you know? It's gonna require some spin to turn it all around. I don't see this as a short-term thing, though. Wouldn't be worth my while. Um... the P.R. Staff, you -- you say you let everybody go, right?
Victoria: Uh, unfortunately, yes, we did.
Neil: Okay. You let my company have the contract. For all your P.R. Outsource it to us, and I'll make sure that this is our top priority, starting right here, starting right now.
Victor: Now, neil, this will require your undivided attention.
Neil: Don't worry about it, okay? 'Cause I'm all over it. As you said, we can't hang around, all right? We got to get ahead of this thing. We got to own it. Which means I need you two to clear the decks. You got to help me pull this off. I need your availability. I need your cooperation 100%. You understand that.
Victoria: Yeah, of course.
Victor: There's only one little distraction tomorrow night, and that is a party for my daughter abby. We're gonna celebrate her recent success.
Neil: Okay, this is perfect. A party. A home run. We got to make a surprise announcement. Newman's merger with brash & sassy. No one is gonna believe this is true. I like this. Okay. But abby, we can't put the focus on her. It's you two that have to be the center of attention.
Victoria: Well, that's brilliant. I mean, abby's a team player. She understands.
Abby: Hey, you.
Dina: Oh, darling. Hello.
[ Smooches ]
Abby: Taking a little break from jabot?
Dina: Well, I'm not sure i still work there.
Abby: Whoa, wait. What are you talking about?
Dina: Well, your uncle jack claimed I wasn't fired, but i saw right through it.
Abby: What happened?
Dina: Nothing, really. It was just a tiny disagreement over some silly corporate issue.
Abby: Oh. Well, my advice would be to march straight to jabot and work things out with uncle jack.
Dina: [ Laughs ] I'll take that under serious consideration.
Abby: [ Chuckles ] Well, I have some news you might be interested in. Something that certainly cheered me up.
Abby: Dad is throwing me a party tomorrow night to celebrate the success of my dating app.
Dina: Oh, how marvelous.
Abby: I would love for you to be there.
Dina: Oh, of course I'll be there.
Abby: That would make me so happy.
Dina: Ohh. Do you know how much I adore you? I really, really do. And maybe it's because you don't judge me.
Abby: Oh. [ Laughs ] Well, I adore you, too. But no one's judging you. Not mom or uncle jack or aunt traci.
Dina: Well, then, maybe you and I are so close because we're so much alike.
Abby: [ Chuckles ] Well, that is a supreme compliment.
Abby: And since you are so lovely, what about some coffee and, uh, carbs on me?
Dina: Oooh! Carbs sound just wonderful.
Abby: Okay. [ Laughs ] Hmm... brownies or croissants, dina?
"The young and the restless"
Abby: Is everything okay with you?
Dina: Well, of course it is. Why wouldn't it be, sweetheart?
Abby: I just meant with what happened at jabot.
Dina: Well, you know what I'm going to do? I'm going to take your advice, and I am going to go over there now and clear the air.
Abby: [ Chuckles ] Without eating?
Dina: Oh, my goodness. Croissants! Mmm! Yummy, yummy, yummy.
[ Chuckles ] Mmm.
Scott: Something wrong?
Abby: Do you want something to be wrong? So then you can, what? Judge me for it?
Scott: You looked troubled, and I politely expressed concern like a decent human being. Not that you deserve much decency.
Abby: See, that's the judgment that I had mentioned. Why would you say something like that to me?
Scott: Oh, I don't know. Maybe because you've been throwing me under the bus, telling people that i might have murdered a woman.
Nikki: It's just so sad. This place used to be such a hub of activity. Now you wouldn't even know that a company had offices here.
Victoria: We're in transition.
Nikki: Call it what you want. It's obvious that brash & sassy is in more trouble than you're admitting. So what happened?
Victoria: [ Sighs ] Okay. We took a huge hit. But we're not having a warehouse-clearance sale just yet. We're still in the game. We're just moving. I mean, this place was never a great fit for us to begin with.
Nikki: Where are you moving to? In town?
Victoria: Yes. I can't tell you any more.
Nikki: What do you mean? You can't tell your mother?
Victoria: All will be revealed soon enough, I promise. Okay? Now, what brings you by?
Nikki: Well, I just had a very interesting meeting with hilary curtis.
Victoria: Oh, no. Anything involving hilary spells trouble.
Nikki: Not necessarily for us this time. How well do you know jordan wilde?
Neil: By tomorrow night, i want this thing burning inside of you like a fever. This thing needs to be a well-oiled machine. Of course this thing is big. It's huge! Why else would newman have called me? Okay. I will talk to you later. Yep. Bye.
Victor: You know how great it is to see you back in your element?
Neil: Yep. I was telling devon the other day, buying and selling companies wasn't satisfying my creative urge. I got to tell you, though, this thing, it came along at the perfect time. I'm getting my hands dirty, and I love it.
Victor: I'm very happy to hear that, neil. You always had a gift for this. I knew it the moment you came to work for newman enterprises.
Neil: Thank you very much. I remember that well. But this time is different. I got my own company and my son with me. I'm doing this for the same reason you still are. I'm enjoying the hell out of it.
Jack: Well, hello there! To what do I owe this welcome surprise?
Nikki: Oh, to gloria not being at her desk. She couldn't possibly make up a story about a conference call that doesn't exist that you couldn't get away from.
Jack: Well, I am so flattered you came all this way to see me.
Nikki: Actually, it was to see victoria.
[ Jack groans ] But I wasn't gonna leave the building without coming up and trying to see you.
Jack: Well, I'm glad you did. So, what is your take on brash & sassy's health and future? I saw victoria earlier at the club, and she seemed awfully optimistic for a woman who was asking to be let out of their lease.
Nikki: I have no idea what victoria has in mind, but even if I did, it's probably not a good idea for me to talk about it with you.
Jack: I will admit, I let my rivalry with brash & sassy get, uh, a bit out of control.
Nikki: "A bit"?
Jack: Okay, I was obsessive and maniacal. Happy?
Nikki: You know what made me happy? When I heard that you and billy had made up. If you can do that, anything is possible. Maybe jabot and brash & sassy can coexist.
Jack: You know, I think you could probably talk me into anything.
Nikki: Oh! Now, jack.
Dina: Oh! What is the current parlance? Oh, yes. Get a room, why don't you?
Abby: I hope you check your facts more closely at hashtag. Because I never implied to anyone that you were guilty of murder. I simply mentioned your arrest to my brother. Nick is faith's father. So, no, I'm not sorry that I did it. You've been spending a lot of time with sharon, who is faith's mother, and I'm sure with faith, too, by now.
Scott: I still don't see how you felt so entitled to go around sharing gossip. Especially when you know how vindictive it is. I mean, why would you want to mess up what I have with sharon?
Abby: Look, even if you are innocent, you're investigating these creepy, scary people. You're bringing them into your world. You're not only putting yourself in danger, but you're risking everyone else.
Scott: I'm not putting anyone in danger. Your niece, your brother, the -- the parking attendant at newman enterprises' garage.
[ Abby scoffs ] 'Scuse me.
Abby: So you claim. I can't entirely take your word for that.
Scott: Deciding who to trust in this world.
[ Chuckles ] That's not part of your skill set, is it?
Abby: I happen to be an excellent judge of character.
Scott: Mustn't be easy from behind that blurry pink wall of the pretty pink bubble you float through life in.
[ Clicks tongue ]
Abby: Oh, well, it's better than drifting along with your head up your own -- you know what? Yeah. I'm not doing this. I'm not doing this today. I'm not letting you ruin today. Today is too great.
Scott: Oh, yeah? Why is that?
Abby: Oh, I guess you haven't gotten your invitation yet. My father is throwing me a celebration tomorrow night to celebrate my accomplishments at the company. So if you want to see what real-world, non-bubble success looks like, you should stop by. Oh, that's if you're not in jail.
Dina: Just what is your problem, jack? Are you really unable to control yourself?
Jack: I'm working on it, mother.
Dina: I see.
Nikki: Don't encourage her.
Dina: Excuse me?
Nikki: Oh, now she says it. It would have been a lot nicer had you said that when you barged in the room and took a perfectly innocent conversation and turned it into something lurid and ridiculous.
Dina: I will not let someone talk to me like that, this gold-digging floozy.
Nikki: What did you just call me?
Dina: You heard me.
Jack: Ladies, ladies, let's reel it in a little bit, shall we?
Nikki: No. Just a minute, jack. You are nothing but a nasty old woman.
[ Dina laughs ] Remind me again, how many times have you been married, each man wealthier than the last?
Dina: Sounds like sour grapes coming from an ex-stripper.
Nikki: Oh, here we go again.
Dina: Oh, yes, yes. Heh. Now that you've lost victor, I imagine any rich young man would be happy to, uh, have a free lap dance.
Nikki: Any man would be happy to be with me, and I don't need to add him to the salary as a stud for his attention.
Dina: You take that back, bitch!
Jack: Okay. Mother -- mother, that's enough.
Nikki: Don't you call me a bitch!
Jack: Now, hold on. Mother, you went too far.
[ Dina scoffs ] I thought you were gonna be at home focusing on your recovery?
Dina: I see. You've made that very, very clear now, jack. You don't want me here. Ever.
Jack: I never said those words.
Dina: Oh, spare me. It's clear your priorities have been corrupted by this gyrating strumpet.
Jack: [ Sighs ]
Victoria: [ Sighs ] Hello.
Jordan: Your text sounded urgent. Um... everything okay?
Victoria: Yeah, it will be. As soon as we get out of this building and away from all the negativity.
Jordan: I am so excited about the big move. Where are we headed, anyway?
Victoria: "We"? As in you and me and this company?
[ Sighs ] Nowhere. Look, I'm gonna be straight with you. I don't need a photographer who takes scummy side jobs, hiding in the forest, spying on my mother and whomever she chooses to be with. Trust and loyalty are two things that I hold in the highest regard, and right now, you're 0 for 2.
[ Sighs ] You're fired.
Hilary: Hey. How's juliet? Any improvement?
Lily: Do you really think it's appropriate for you to be here?
Hilary: I am worried about juliet. And right now, I am the closest thing that she has to a friend in this town. So the way I see it, I have more right to be here than you.
Lily: Take the blinders off, sweetie.
Hilary: Did you ever think that maybe you're the reason why she's even in that operating room?
Lily: You are despicable.
Cane: All right, listen. She's had the same complications with the pregnancy for weeks now, okay, so it's not lily's fault. So don't come here looking for a fight, okay?
Hilary: Well, I'm glad that the two of you are here for juliet. I don't want to add to the tension. I know you're dealing with enough already. So I will go and wait somewhere else.
Cane: Yeah, that's a good idea.
Hilary: Can you please tell me if you hear anything?
Hilary: Thank you.
Lily: [ Sighs ]
[ Alarm blaring ]
She's losing too much blood. Either we get this baby out now or we lose them both.
Nikki: I know I don't have to say this, but you are in no way to blame for what happened just here.
Jack: Mother knows she's out of line. She knows she has no business talking to you like that. Ever since she came back, you have been a great sport. But this isn't a game. This is getting worse. She is getting worse. My father never got over how she abandoned him. Now, with time, I'm beginning to realize... maybe he got off easy.
Dina: Hello, there. I'll have a greyhound, please. Your best vodka. Oh! And -- and apparently i don't have any silverware. Thank you.
Neil: I feel great about everything we've set up so far, except for one little thing. Keeping abby out of the loop. I mean, are you sure that you want to play it this way?
Victor: Neil, you and i are old friends. I got to tell you, I don't feel good about it. But if we now told abby about the new focus of her party, then it might jeopardize the announcement.
[ Door opens ]
Victoria: How's our project coming along? Wait, let me guess -- amazingly well.
Neil: How clairvoyant of you.
Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Well, you're taking a break, which dad allowed, so it's obvious that you're killing it, as I predicted. Am I right, dad?
Victor: Yes. Neil even managed to get scott's journalist friend to hold off on the story.
Victoria: Oh, that's amazing! I don't know how newman enterprises has ever survived without you.
Victor: How about brash & sassy?
Victoria: Yeah, also brash & sassy. Without neil's loan, there wouldn't have been much for you to bail out. While you're busy fixing things, I don't suppose you know of a brilliant photographer who's affordable for brash & sassy? I had to terminate the old one.
Abby: Dad! Hi. Here is the latest progress report on the bancroft deal.
Victor: Thank you, sweetheart.
Abby: Neil, hi! Wow, that's quite a setup you have there.
Neil: Abby, you know, you see, this is mission control. Command center.
Abby: [ Chuckles ] Well, what are you working on?
Neil: Well, I dropped by to show your dad, like, exactly what we're up to these days at hamilton-winters.
Abby: I love it. I love that you're here. And if my dad hasn't already invited you, I want to extend an invite to a party he insisted on throwing me tomorrow night.
Neil: Oh. What's the occasion?
Abby: We are celebrating designdate's rise to the top of the app mountain.
Neil: Yeah! That's -- that's great news. I-I, uh -- congratulations. Count me in. Wouldn't miss it.
Abby: Perfect. I will send you all the details. Thank you, daddy. Mwah!
