Episode #11311~ Nick confronts Abby; Jill calls the shots; J.T. worries about Billy's influence over Reed.
Provided By SuzannePreviously on the young and the restless ...
Sharon: I'm a sucker for weddings. I think we can all root for true love.
Abby: I really do hope that things work out for you and sharon.
Jill: Cane and lily are being ridiculously silly. They're wasting time being stubborn.
Devon: And you think you're gonna put them back together with a fake party?
Cane: What's up, buddy? What are you doing in town?
J.T.: Well, uh, short-term work assignment. Reed's been spinning ever since I got back in town, but that's on me. That's not on victoria.
Victoria: Your father's not going anywhere. He's decided to stay in town.
Reed: 'Cause I'm a delinquent?
J.T.: Because you're my son.
Billy: Ah! Whoa, whoa, whoa. I'm not done with that.
J.T.: Yeah, that's obvious, guy.
[ Sniffs ]
[ Clears throat ] Famous billy abbott liquid breakfast, huh?
Billy: What are you doing here? I thought you left town.
J.T.: Well, I needed to extend my visit. But it's becoming, uh, it's becoming a little more clear to me.
Billy: Yeah? What is?
J.T.: Reed moves back to genoa city, he buddies up with you, and a couple nights ago, he gets arrested for a D.U.I.
J.T.: Oh, yeah. Yeah. Thanks for being such a positive influence on my son.
Cane: I'm sending you a zip file, so you should have all the documents on the division projects for the first quarter.
Jill: [ Chuckles ] Thank you so much! Now I won't have to pick up some trashy best-seller for my flight back to down under.
Cane: Well, I just want you to be fully confident in your decision not to sell chancellor to jabot.
Jill: God, it's been so lovely spending time with you. I wish I could stay longer.
Cane: Me, too. 'Cause I'd really like to be able to show you in person how i plan on running the company. Actually, you know what? Speaking of that, it's probably better if you go 'cause then you can't pull any more of your stunts.
Jill: I have no idea what you're talking about.
Cane: Really? Okay. So, the big new year's eve bash for just two people, that wasn't a stunt, huh? Listen, it is gonna take more than that to push me and lily back together.
Jill: Hey, I provided you with the perfect setting, including caviar flown in from finland. The moment was yours to seize.
Cane: Well, I'm sorry, but it's not gonna be that simple.
Jill: Don't complain to me because you chickened out of your golden opportunity.
Abby: Oh. Hi. Um, what's up?
Sharon: I just wanted to say happy new year.
Abby: Thank you. Same to you. Oh! And there's my date.
Sharon: Oh, lily! Happy new year!
Lily: Thank you. You, too.
Abby: Um, is the patio open?
Sharon: Knock yourselves out.
Abby: I am so sorry I said to come here. I completely spaced on the --
Abby: The awkward factor because of sharon? Forget about it.
Lily: So there is none?
Abby: Why should there be? I have, uh, zero feelings for scott.
Billy: Hey, vick, it's me. I, uh, just heard about reed. It didn't exactly come from a reliable source, so I'd rather hear your version. Call me back when you get a chance, please. Bye.
J.T.: You know, it's my kid. I'm not messing up the facts.
Billy: Except for the part where I'm to blame.
J.T.: Hmm! I've talked to victoria. I've heard about how much of a
role model you've been for him.
Billy: You're right. I have been, and a damn good one.
J.T.: [ Chuckles ] Says the guy who's drinking his breakfast.
Billy: You think you're a better influence, J.T.?
J.T.: I don't think it.
Billy: Yeah. You know what? You're right. I've made some mistakes. Some would say I'm a screw-up because I like to have a drink in the morning or maybe in the afternoon when I'm watching my racehorse. But at least I didn't let someone die, passed out drunk in a snowbank.
J.T.: You know, I really hope you haven't told reed about that. 'Cause I got a few things i could tell him about his uncle billy.
Billy: You really want to make this a competition? Who gets the dubious honor of first place?
J.T.: Oh, it wouldn't be a contest. You'd win hands down.
Billy: Come on. This is the one thing you might beat me at. Probably more of a tie, honestly.
J.T.: Yeah. Tie, for sure.
Chelsea: And look at this gorgeous tub. It has a flat screen above it! You would love that! You could watch sports. Oh, and there's a solar-heated water tank so we can keep you totally warm while you sit there and watch romantic movies.
Nick: That's great.
Chelsea: Yeah, and, uh, it has a microwave in the shower in case you want a snack.
Nick: Yeah, I like that.
Nick: [ Sighs ] Sorry. I just -- I can't stop thinking that I should have just confronted grainger right then and there.
Chelsea: No, no, no! That would have been the worst. That would have been complete and utter humiliation for abby, not to mention sharon. It would have been the worst thing to do to the both of them.
Nick: Worse than taking sharon's heart and her trust and just stomping on it the second she turns her back?
Chelsea: You saw one kiss. Maybe it was a momentary impulse, and the second it happened, abby and scott regretted it.
Nick: Come on. That's, like, the best-case scenario.
Chelsea: Well, you're focusing on the worst-case scenario. I mean, you're making it seem like they're having this whole, big torrid love affair and they're just laughing at sharon behind her back.
Nick: Well, mine seems more plausible.
Chelsea: You're just saying that because you hate scott. But what would that say about abby?
Nick: Look, I love her, but i know that she's not always innocent.
Chelsea: And you are?
Nick: Why? Why you got to be so harsh just to make a point?
Chelsea: I just don't understand why you're making such a big deal about all this.
Nick: Because I don't know what to do about it.
Chelsea: Listen to me. You don't know enough information to be able to make a wise decision.
Nick: Okay. What if it was you? What if it was you and not sharon and the dog was me and not scott? Would you want to know the truth? Hmm? That's what I thought.
Chelsea: What are you going to do?
[ Scoffs ] Seriously?
[ Door closes ]
Lily: Here you go.
Abby: Thank you.
Lily: So, I didn't talk to you after new year's eve. I'm guessing you had no more contact with scott?
Abby: Uh, well, actually, something even better happened. We had an honest, adult conversation. Uh, I wished him well with sharon, and he said I deserve the same happiness.
Lily: And that's it?
Abby: Yeah, right in line with our mutual resolution.
Lily: Yes, heartbreaks will not dictate our futures.
Abby: No, they will not.
[ Both chuckle ] I believe in 2018 there is a guy out there for me, one for you, maybe multiple choices.
Lily: Well, I'm very happy with your confidence. I read this article that most people break their resolutions after 4 to 16 days.
Abby: Ooh. [ Chuckles ] Well, they are wimps. You know, um, after scott and i wrapped up our conversation, i had that fresh-start feeling you get like when you switch out your wall calendar. So we, uh, we kissed, we said goodbye, and we went our separate ways.
Lily: Whoa, whoa, wait. I'm sorry. You kissed? Like, you kissed-kissed?
Abby: Kind of. It was like a proper kiss, a quite nice one at that. It was a nice, proper goodbye kiss.
Abby: Yeah. So, how was jill's soiree?
Lily: Hmm. Is that french for set-up ? Because that's what it was.
Abby: [ Chuckles ] No. With cane?
Lily: Yeah. It was just him and me. I'm guessing after billy and victoria, jill needs a new matchmaking challenge.
Abby: [ Sighs ]
Lily: So, yes, that little awkward factor you talked about, I was swimming in it. I was drowning, actually.
Cane: All right.
Jill: How gallant. Or maybe you're just trying to get rid of me before I can bring up my party again. Hmm. Fine. My dinner party.
Cane: [ Clears throat ]
Jill: For two.
Cane: Right, which wasn't meant to be.
Jill: Please. I was watching at midnight, merely to send good vibes.
Cane: So, then you saw how that worked out?
Jill: Darling, what I saw was how much you want lily back. Do you remember how close you came to kissing her?
Cane: You don't have to remind me.
Jill: Why are you so sure she doesn't want the same thing?
Cane: Because I know her better than anybody else.
Lily: So, it didn't take very long for cane and I to realize that we were the only guests.
Abby: Ah, classic jill. So what did happen?
Lily: The only thing that could. We just -- we laughed about it. But, I mean, I will give it to jill. It did help break the ice. It was easy, comfortable. And then we did have this moment at midnight.
Abby: Don't torture me.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] We hugged.
Lily: And nothing. I-I know cane. I could tell that hug was as far as he wanted to take it.
Jill: I still think it looked like she was waiting for you to make the first move.
Cane: Well, I don't know how much more obvious I could have been. She is ready to move on.
Lily: I mean, it's pretty obvious that cane moved on faster than I did. And I think that's what stings the most.
Jill: That's my driver. He's pulling up in front right now.
Cane: Well, I guess this is goodbye.
Jill: Yeah. Listen to me. You and lily don't have to say goodbye, though. Why can't the two of you see what's right in front of you? Darling, that you're both nuts about each other. I mean, get a clue! Find a way to express that to her clearly and quickly, cane, or you're gonna regret it. Hi, I'm mike ditka.
Billy: Ah! Well, I'm ready for one more. You gonna lighten up and join me?
J.T.: Oh, tempting, if it didn't mean extending this little reunion. We've been hammering each other pretty hard. Haven't we said it all?
Billy: Maybe you have. I'm just getting started.
J.T.: Oh, by all means, don't hold back.
Billy: Well, we haven't talked about the little stunt you pulled, taking reed and skipping out of town. You know you broke victoria's heart.
J.T.: Well, that's a whole other contest, you know, figuring out who hurt her the most. It would require a lot more time and a hell of a lot more liquor.
Billy: Yeah, then we'd both be too smashed for the bonus round -- who hurt mac more.
J.T.: I'll pass on that one, give the scar tissue a chance to build up.
Billy: What does that mean? Your marriage over?
J.T.: Just that I'm trying to be a better person, but sometimes effort alone just doesn't seem to cut it.
Billy: Yeah, I hear you.
J.T.: Sometimes I wish we could go back to the glo by jabot days.
Billy: Do me a favor. You find a time machine, you leave me out of it, okay? The only good that would be for me is I could warn colleen to stay the hell away from you.
J.T.: Easy. I could order you a whole nother pitcher of those, and there's plenty of snowbanks to leave you in.
[ Sighs ]
Billy: Ahhh, damn it.
J.T.: What? Girl trouble?
Billy: Yeah, you could say that. It's my mother. She's leaving town today, and she's gonna take any opportunity to give me one more lecture. You never saw me.
J.T.: Saw who?
Jill: J.T. Hellstrom!
Jill: What a long time.
J.T.: It has been a long time.
Jill: I heard that you were passing through town.
J.T.: Yeah, actually might be sticking around for a while.
Jill: Oh, great. I was just on my way to the airport, and I know that billy comes in here for breakfast, so I was hoping to run into him.
J.T.: Yeah, he's right over there.
Billy: Hey, mom!
[ Clears throat ] What's up?
Jill: Oh, I don't know. I'm just standing in a restaurant watching my full-grown son hiding from his mother.
J.T.: Yeah, what are you? 3 years old?
Jill: Don't you start! And what is that?
Billy: That's a cocktail. The guy's drinking, and it's not even noon.
Sharon: I think it's gonna be a good year. No, even better than good. I think it's gonna be one of the best years in I don't know how long.
Nick: Well, you deserve that. You know, no matter what life throws at you, everyone should have that attitude.
Sharon: I know it couldn't have been easy for you, you know, having to celebrate at the ranch. But seeing you and chelsea there and how solid you were, I was glad you decided to come. Weren't you?
Nick: Uh, it was all right. It was a little weird for me.
Sharon: Because of having to be around your parents?
Nick: That's part of it. I just don't think I should have been there.
Sharon: Well, I'm sorry you didn't have any fun. Scott and I sure did. What's going on out there?
Nick: [ Sighs ] It's abby. I need to talk to her. Do you know who she's with?
Sharon: Yeah, she's with lily. I'm sure they wouldn't mind if you said hi. Go. I'll warm up one of your favorite orange cranberry muffins.
Lily: Well, it was good catching up.
Lily: Oh, hey. And I'm leaving. Bye.
Nick: Wow. Uh, if I didn't need this seat, I would take it personally. But, uh, got some sibling stuff.
Lily: Yeah, no problem. All right, bye, abby.
Lily: Bye. Good to see you.
Nick: Good to see you. You got a minute? I'd really like to ask you a question.
Abby: Sure. Yeah. Have a seat. What's up?
[ Chuckles ] Uh, this bathroom remodel that I'm doing at chelsea's penthouse.
Nick: Well, you have such great taste. You know, you've got an eye for stuff like that. I just want to run some ideas by you.
Abby: Oh, well, that's very flattering, but chelsea's the artsy one, and it's her opinion that counts, right?
Nick: Chelsea and I aren't exactly, you know, totally in sync on this project.
Abby: Ooh, if that's the case, I would proceed with extreme caution, because home renovations can be deadly if you're not on the same page.
Nick: Well, we're not that far apart.
Abby: Do you think that, or do you know that? Because you don't want to mess up a good thing over marble versus granite.
Nick: Look, uh, whatever differences chelsea and I have, we're gonna get past it, you know, because we've got the big stuff nailed.
Abby: The master bath?
Nick: Uh, no, I was thinking more like, you know, honesty, trust. I was just talking to sharon about that with, you know, her and scott. If you and your partner can achieve total trust, then you got it made because the rest is cake.
Abby: [ Chuckles ]
Paul: Hey, J.T.
J.T.: Hey. I was just on my way to see you about reed.
Paul: Ah, okay. As you know, a D.U.I. Is a pretty serious problem, more so when it involves a minor. I hope you're not gonna ask me for any special favors.
J.T.: No, no, I would never put you in that position. But reed is my main concern. He needs to know that he messed up in a big way but that I'm gonna be there for him no matter what.
Paul: Right. Well, that's all you can do, really.
Paul: Well, I appreciate your take on this.
J.T.: Yeah. Billy and I were just talking, reminding each other that we were both guilty of much worse when we were reed's age. Situations that could have wrecked a lot more lives than just our own.
Paul: Well, you got lucky.
J.T.: Yeah, we did.
Billy: So were you gonna turn the whole city upside down just to say goodbye to me in person? So sweet.
Jill: I don't know. I'm thinking of changing my plans, you know, and sticking around for a while. There's only one thing stopping me.
Billy: Which is?
Jill: My cardiologist. She tells me that watching a train wreck from this close up day after day would be the shortest route for another heart attack. Yeeeeaaaahhh!
Lily: Hey. I heard you were in town. I was wondering when you were gonna stop by.
J.T.: Is that a, uh, nice way of saying why the hell haven't you called ?
Lily: Yeah, it is. But you're here now, and I'm so happy to see you.
J.T.: You, too. You, too. And I promise you your daughter calling the cops on my son has nothing to do with the delay.
Lily: Well, from parent to parent, I would hope not.
J.T.: No, no, she, uh, she did the right thing. Probably kept him from injuring himself or others.
Lily: I just wish he had listened to her. This is a lot for reed to deal with.
J.T.: Yeah, I'm gonna help him out as much as I can, but this is his mess. He's gonna have to clean it up himself.
Lily: Well, I'm glad that we're in agreement. And I wonder where this will leave their little romance. I mean, she was crazy about reed.
J.T.: Unlike her father.
[ Chuckles ]
Lily: Yeah, just one of the many issues that cane and I have different opinions on.
Cane: Yeah, that's right. Chancellor industries. All right, thanks.
[ Sighs ]
Sharon: Here it is, though a tad late.
Nick: Oh, it's amazing. Thanks.
Abby: Well, it's been busy in here.
Sharon: Yeah, spring semester registration at the university. I should head over there.
Nick: Do you have to go now? Aren't they doing it all day?
Sharon: Well, I've got some staff to cover me now, so i might as well.
Nick: Well, we haven't had a chance to talk in awhile.
Nick: Hmm. I don't know. How about scott? How are things going with scott at the ranch?
Sharon: Fantastic. And I appreciate you at least pretending to care. Um, did your brother make a new year's resolution about my boyfriend?
Abby: Well, he's been acting weird since he sat down, so, uh, who knows?
Nick: Well, it sounds like a lovefest in a love nest.
Sharon: Actually, the house is a little cozy for three adults, but scott's just too selfless to complain. And, you know, mariah will have the place to herself pretty soon because I'm taking scott to a b&b in maiden rock for a long weekend. Now, it's a secret, so no spoilers.
[ Dishes crash ] Oh, excuse me. Got to go.
Nick: Isn't that nice, you know, to hear that there's still some real romance out there, especially after having to go to that ridiculous thing for mom and dad?
Abby: Do you have to do that?
Nick: If I'm forced to attend, I'm allowed to comment.
Abby: All right, well, dad and nikki have their own idea of love and marriage, and they're making it work. Why can't you accept that?
Nick: Do I have a choice? Hey, what about my relationship with chelsea? Do you think we're making it work?
Abby: Yeah, you guys are in love. I'm happy for you.
Nick: Are you also happy for sharon and scott?
Abby: Yeah. Of course.
Nick: So you think they're great together?
Nick: I just want your opinion. Do you think sharon and scott have, uh, you know, what chelsea and I have?
Abby: How should I know?
Nick: Take a guess.
Abby: Why are you being so intense about this?
Nick: If you want me to stop, abby, just tell me if you think sharon and scott are great together.
Abby: Yeah, fine. They're great.
Nick: Then why are you trying to ruin it for them?
Abby: [ Sighs ]
Lily: I'm so sorry to hear about you and mac. I guess we both had a rough year.
J.T.: Yeah, well, it's taken a little while for me to process it's really over, but genoa city seems like a great place for me to get my head on straight. You know, and if I can find a job, that would be great.
Lily: Oh, okay. Something permanent?
J.T.: If it's the right fit.
Lily: Well, I guess it'll be a fresh start, and not just for you and reed.
J.T.: Yeah, I guess you know a little bit about that, huh?
Lily: Uh, yeah.
[ Chuckles ] It's been a long, strange few months. My emotions have been pretty ragged.
J.T.: Yeah, I can't imagine what that was like, finding out cane fathered a child with somebody he worked with.
Lily: Yeah, that was quite a punch to the gut. Uh, but, you know, the baby's beautiful and stronger than any of us, I think.
J.T.: Reed told me you and mattie donated blood for his surgery.
Lily: Yeah. He was tiny and without a mother, struggling to survive, so it was the right thing to do.
J.T.: Well, from what I hear, mattie is an exceptional young woman. It's obvious she's her mother's daughter.
Lily: [ Chuckles ] Thanks. Did you know that, uh, cane was running chancellor industries? I can ask about a job for you.
J.T.: Not that I wouldn't appreciate it, but don't have an awkward conversation on my account. I mean, if you and cane are anything like mac and me --
Lily: No, no, no, it's not awkward at all. I don't mind talking to cane.
Jill: Would you please give me one thing to hold on to while I'm away? I mean, it can be your choice. Uh, you could find a job. You could reconcile with victoria to help her raise my beautiful grandchildren -- all right, that one's maybe a stretch. At least sell the damn racehorse.
Billy: If I wasn't such a screw-up, you'd have nothing to complain about. What fun would that be?
Jill: Baby, do you think it's fun watching your child living a half life?
Billy: Compared to who? Jack and ashley? I've tried the high-powered work. I don't like it. I'd rather be in a graveyard. High-powered work does not define living to me.
Jill: Okay, all right. Fair enough. What is your definition of happiness? You must have some idea.
Billy: See, ma, that's the thing. I don't feel the need to define it. I don'T. I'm happy the way I am right now, just being me. I get to experience the look on johnny and katie's face when i show up and pick them up from school all surprised. It could be that small. Or it could be as huge as having a conversation with jack again. The night of the fire, we let go of all the hate and the drama like that. Yeah, we're on opposite sides of the whole jabot C.E.O. Debacle, but I'm confident we'll work it out.
Jill: You'll work it out. Boy, if the two of you are strong enough to survive phyllis...
Billy: See, and that's the thing. The husband of the divorced woman who I'm in a relationship with now is handling that relationship better than you are. And I'm fine with that. That is okay because I don't have that need for approval. It's just gone. It's good with me being in a relationship with the woman i love who keeps things exciting and interesting. I'm glad to be alive.
Jill: I'm so glad you're telling me all this. And I swear I don't mean to diminish any of it.
Billy: But? Because there's always a but.
Jill: Well, it's not actually a but. It is a wish. It is a wish from me to you, that you don't let this gratitude and this new perspective of yours, as healthy and as amazing as it is, be all that you have. I want you to keep a little bit of hunger in there, because that hunger is gonna provide you with the drive to make more good things come into your life. That hunger is what I've always had. And I really, really believe that you've inherited that gene from me, billy.
Billy: Yeah. You're probably right. I mean, you're the opposite of complacent. Lord knows I don't want to be that.
Jill: If I'd been complacent, I would have gone ahead with the sale of chancellor. And if you hadn't told me about jack, I wouldn't have felt this need to bring more happiness to myself.
Billy: I'm happy for you. I really am. That means a lot. I just personally think I'm a little bit young to think of my legacy. No offense.
Jill: Hey, watch your mouth, young man. Besides, which it is never too early to seize the moment, too early to make something good happen for yourself.
Billy: Well, if you see something worth seizing, you -- you let me know, okay?
Jill: Oh, my god. I do.
Billy: Oh, no.
Jill: No, I see something. My legacy could be your legacy.
Billy: What? Chancellor, mom?
Jill: Of course, chancellor, billy. What else?
Nick: No, no, no, no, no. You're not walking away from this.
Abby: Yes, I am. I have to get to work.
Nick: Well, lucky for you, daddy is your boss, so you can afford to be late once in awhile.
Abby: [ Sighs ]
Nick: I don't -- how can you do this to sharon?
Abby: Asks her cheating ex-husband.
Nick: All right, you can fling accusations back and forth if you want. I don't care. I'm not concerned with the past. But we're gonna deal with this right here, right now. How long has this been going on? How far has it gone?
Abby: Okay, I cannot deny what you saw on new year's eve. But what you didn't hear is what we said after the kiss.
Nick: Okay, well, by all means, fill me in.
Abby: There is nothing between us. Look, I don't know if it was the adrenaline or -- or what it was. It was confused emotions. It made us believe there was something between us, but we realized there isn'T. It was brief, and it's over. I'm pretty sure I know what scott wants, and it's not me.
Nick: Whatever happened...
[ Sighs ] You were single. Scott was with sharon. And that didn't stop him from being with you.
Abby: You've always disliked him.
Nick: I distrusted him. Now he's living in a home where my daughter spends half her time.
Abby: Scott feels just as lousy about this as I do. You don't know him.
Nick: Yeah, therefore I don't know if he's telling the truth or not, all right, or what his intentions are with sharon. Sharon needs to know. Everything.
Jill: Look, cane's private life is in a bit of a mess right now. He's got his marriage to fix. He's got a baby with health problems. He's got teenagers with issues. How can I ask him to handle all that at the same time as he's trying to tend to chancellor? This is where you could be so helpful.
Billy: I sit opposite you and we have this heart-to-heart, and I tell you how happy I am not working, and your solution is to take a job and work with cane, whose personal problems are none of my business or concern?
Jill: All right. Think of me. I am dying to get back to my life with colin, and I can't do that unless I know that chancellor is covered, honey. It would be too much stress on me.
Billy: So I take this job because I'm concerned about your health? That's clever, mom.
Jill: It'll be temporary until things settle down.
Billy: Oh, this is a temporary gig?
Jill: Well, you could call it that, yeah.
Billy: Until you hound me to make it permanent?
Jill: I would put a no-hounding clause in the contract.
Billy: Still haven't heard anything to say yes to.
Jill: Think how much it would bug cane to have you sharing his job with him.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Lily: [ Sighs ] Hi. Um, someone's calling me. Can you hold on one second?
Jill: Not really. I'm on my way to the airport, and I'm late, and I got to say this really fast.
Lily: Uh, okay. Go ahead.
Jill: What the hell is wrong with you?
Lily: [ Scoffs ] Excuse me?
Jill: Why are you and cane both so blind to the obvious? It is clear that you want to be back together. But neither one of you has the guts to be honest about it.
Lily: Okay, jill, this is --
Jill: No, no. Just hear me out, please. Lily, I went to an insane amount of trouble on new year's eve to bring you both together. And what were the results? No results! Because neither one of you had the courage to speak from the heart! And I was there watching you! It was so obvious that's what you wanted!
Lily: You were watching us?
Jill: Oh, for god's sake. It's not too late! The man has a baby. He needs you. Lily, he loves you so much!
[ Voice breaking ] And I know you still love him, too!
[ Sighs ]
[ Sighs ]
[ Door closes ]
Nick: Where is my phone?
Abby: Right here.
Nick: Give it.
Abby: No. What's telling sharon gonna do? Honestly?
Nick: Abby, if it was you, would you want to know?
Abby: Not if scott's thing with whoever was over with. I mean, then you're just dishing out pain for no real purpose.
Nick: Yeah, well, I already thought about that. But here's the thing. Even if scott is telling the truth and it's over with you, he's already proven who he is. What's to stop him from doing this with some other woman?
Abby: He's -- he's not, okay? That -- that's -- that's all.
Nick: Sharon's gonna get hurt, all right? If not now, then later.
Abby: Look, sharon can be really happy with scott. But if you butt in now, you're gonna ruin a good thing. What are you gonna do?
Nick: The right thing. Look, I will -- I'll keep your name out of it, abby. It's all I can promise.
Abby: [ Sighs ] Scott, it's abby. Call me asap.
[ Sighs ]
Cane: Hey. Um, what brings you by?
Lily: I saw that you called me.
Cane: And you drove all the way over here.
Lily: Yeah. [ Chuckles ]
Cane: [ Chuckles ] Come in.
Lily: Okay. Thanks.
Lily: Oh, hey.
J.T.: Hey. Hey, this is -- this is crazy. I didn't expect you just to rush over here and talk to him so fast.
Lily: Oh. [ Chuckles ]
Cane: Uh, what were you gonna talk to me about?
Lily: Um, I offered to mention that J.T.'S looking for a job in town, so...
J.T.: Yeah, and I didn't want to impose, so I came on my own.
Cane: So that's why you came by.
Lily: Um, well, here he is, so he can make his pitch to you in person.
J.T.: Should I just wait in the living room?
Cane: Yeah, sure. Come in. Sit down.
J.T.: All right.
Lily: So, why did you call?
Cane: Uh... you, uh, left this behind on new year's eve, and, um, I just wanted to let you know it was here.
Lily: Oh, um, okay. Thank you. I appreciate it.
Lily: Uh, okay. Bye. Hi, I'm mike ditka.
J.T.: I don't know how to thank you, man.
Cane: Hey, just do the great job I know you can do, all right? 'Cause you're perfect for chancellor.
J.T.: Well, look, I'm happy to be back in genoa city, but i got to say this is, uh, this is the most positive thing that's happened to me in a long time.
Cane: I know how it feels, okay, when you're trying to get back on your feet after everything goes south, so the first thing you got to do is you got to get out of that club.
J.T.: What do you mean?
Cane: You know what you should do? We have plenty of room here. Why don't you just move in?
J.T.: Oh, come on. That's a generous offer, but i don't --
Cane: Sam would love to make a new friend, all right? And if you get up and you help me with those midnight feedings, we'll call that rent.
J.T.: Yeah. [ Laughs ] No, look, man, it's really nice of you, but... I picked up a little vibe between you and lily, and i wouldn't want to get in the way.
[ Door closes ] Uh, if you're looking for jill, she already left for the airport.
Billy: Yeah, no, I'm not. I'm here to see you. My new partner.
Cane: [ Laughs ] What are you talking about?
Billy: At chancellor. I'm the new co-C.E.O.
Lily: Oh, hey, you're still here. Good, because I need your opinion. So jill barges into my house and makes me completely rethink where things really stand with cane.
Abby: Okay, I'm sorry for being a sucky, selfish friend, but I have my own crisis, and i have got to call scott again.
Lily: What's wrong?
Abby: After you left, nick went off on me. He knows about scott.
Lily: What? How?
Abby: He saw us kiss on new year's eve.
Lily: Oh, my god. That is not good.
Abby: Yeah. And now he wants to tell sharon.
Lily: Do you think he really will, though?
Abby: I'm not sure. He promised to keep my name out of it, not that it matters, but if he says anything to her, he's gonna blow up scott and sharon for good.
Lily: Is that bad? I'm just checking.
Abby: [ Sighs ] It was confused emotions. It made us believe there was something between us, but we realized there isn'T. It was brief, and it's over.
[ Cellphone rings ]
Nick: [ Sighs ]
Sharon: Nick? What's up?
