Victoria: What's it gonna take to get through to you?

Previously on "the young and the restless"...

Victoria: What's it gonna take to get through to you? This could affect your chances with college. And god forbid this ever happens again!

J.T.: What are you talking about? Counseling?

Victoria: Boarding school.

Cane: Paris of all places, huh?

Lily: So your father's not here?

Mattie: He took off.

Lily: Tell your dad I said goodbye and I hope everything goes well while I'm gone.

Cane: Do you know where I can find lily?

Scott: You just missed her. She already left.

Ashley: Wait, this is the jabot lab.

Jack: By new year's, that lab will be back to its former glory.

Ashley: This is very toxic. It shouldn't be anywhere near any of these oil compounds.

[ Glass shatters ]

[ Footsteps approach ]

Victoria: Reed! I'm not calling you again!

[ Sighs ] Hurry up! You're gonna be late for school! Reed! Don't make me come up there! Hey. Reed's gone.

J.T.: When did he take off?

Victoria: Some time between last night and 7:00 this morning. When I was calling him, I went upstairs. He doesn't make his bed, so i couldn't tell if he slept in it, but I called the school, and he's not there.

J.T.: Did he pack a bag?

Victoria: Well, his guitar's missing and some clothes and his computer.

[ Sighs ] Where did he go, J.T.? Why?

Phyllis: [ Chopping ]

[ Timer dings ]

[ Gasping ]

Billy: Ooh.

Phyllis: Oh!

Billy: What smells so good?

Phyllis: Eau de burnt pancakes.

Billy: Wasn't talking about pancakes.

Phyllis: Hey, uh, hate to kill the buzz here, but, um, we need to get johnny and katie ready for school before hannah picks them up, okay?

Billy: Johnny and katie -- why is the floor so sticky?

Phyllis: Because you're standing where I dropped the chocolate chips.

Billy: Oh, you did that?

Phyllis: You know, I-I don't understand why this was so much easier with summer.

Billy: Be nice to yourself, okay? You might be a little bit out of practice, but I think you're doing great. The kids adore you. That's all that counts.

Phyllis: Well, you know what? I adore them, okay? And it's been great having them here with us for the past few days, you know, but, you know, i tell you, I am gonna be relieved when they're headed back to their mother, you know, after school. Just, we're gonna have a place back to ourselves, and we can be a couple again, and instead of chicken nuggets, we can have chicken cordon bleu at the club. Does that not sound amazing right now? Does it sound yummy?

Billy: Everything about you is yummy.

[ Doorbell rings ] We don't want none!

Phyllis: I will be back. One second.

Billy: Just leave 'em.

Phyllis: One second.

Reed: I need a place to crash.

Victoria: Thank you. Thank you so much for checking.

J.T.: That sounded like good news.

Victoria: Yeah. He's not at memorial. Thank god.

J.T.: Yeah, he's not in jail, either, so two for two.

Victoria: Gosh, I don't know how you can joke at a time like this.

J.T.: Have you, uh, have you got ahold of any of his friends?

Victoria: I left a bunch of voicemails. Anything on his social media?

J.T.: No. He hasn't posted in a while.

Victoria: If I don't hear something soon, I'm gonna call the police.

J.T.: Wait, wait. It's a little early for that.

Victoria: I don't care. I mean, the least they can do is assign a couple of officers to be on the lookout. He's a minor. That should count for something. I just don't understand why he would take off like this. I thought we were in an okay place.

J.T.: We were. Until I told him mac and i separated, then the D.U.I., Then the music program rejection. The kid is falling apart.

Billy: So, fill me in. You had a fight with your mom?

Reed: Last night she told my dad she wanted to send me off to boarding school.

Billy: What? She didn't say that.

Reed: I heard her myself.

Billy: Reed, she loves you, okay? She's not just gonna ship you off like that.

Reed: Man, it's this whole D.U.I. Thing. The judge was a massive tool and made her think she has to be harder on me.

Phyllis: You did plead guilty, right?

Reed: Yeah, but the judge didn't think I was sorry enough. So she suspended my license for a year and, on top of that, charged me this huge fine, and now I have to serve a bunch of community service hours.

Billy: Reed, okay, you got a D.U.I.

Reed: I know, all right? I mean...

Billy: All right. When was the hearing?

Reed: Yesterday. Mom said I have to get a job or sell my guitar to pay the fine.

Billy: How much was it?

Reed: 400 bucks.

Billy: Geez. That is kind of steep.

Reed: Yeah. And now she says I'm not allowed to take it out of my savings. I have to earn it. And once I heard about boarding school, it was just too much. I had to get out of there. I couldn't take it anymore, so i just grabbed my stuff and went to a friend's house.

Billy: Who's the friend?

Reed: James. You don't know him. But his parents were out of town, so I went there, and they were coming back today. I didn't want them to say anything to mom, so... I just -- I can't deal with her anymore. I need to live my own life.

Phyllis: Hang on. Are you saying that victoria doesn't know where you are right now?

Billy: Reed, you didn't leave a note? You didn't text her or anything?

Reed: No.

Billy: Come on. What are you doing? She's got to be worried scared. You got to call her and tell her that you're okay.

Reed: Forget it. Knowing her, she'll probably send me to military school. I don't want to talk to her.

Phyllis: Well, I don't believe that for a second. Look, I know that victoria can be rigid, but, you know, she's -- she's not a vengeful person. If she's strict, it's just because she's caring about you.

Reed: If you say so. To me, it feels like the warden's dictating my every move.

Billy: All right, well, I'm gonna call her and tell her you're okay.

Reed: Billy, what?!

Billy: I don't want to hear it out of you right now.

Reed: [ Sighs ]

Victoria: Billy. Hey, is everything okay with the kids?

Billy: The kids are fine. I just wanted to let you know that reed is here. He's here safe with phyllis and me.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Thank god. Reed's okay. He's at billy'S.

J.T.: Yeah?

Victoria: Yeah.

J.T.: Put him on -- put him on speaker.

Victoria: Hey, billy, I have you on speaker. J.T.'S here. So, um, I'll be right by to pick up reed.

Billy: I don't think that's such a good idea, at least not right now.

Victoria: What? Why? Did he tell you why he took off?

Billy: Something about boarding school.

Victoria: He must have heard us talking about it last night.

Billy: Yeah.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Look, I need to see him, and -- and I need to talk to my son.

Billy: Listen, vick, I know how you're feeling. I just -- I don't want to make things worse right now.

J.T.: You're afraid he'll disappear again.

Billy: Yeah.

Johnny: Reed, are you taking us to school?

Reed: I'm not, buddy. Um, I'm not gonna be driving for a little while.

Phyllis: Yeah, but the babysitter's coming in a little bit, and she's gonna take you guys to school. But meanwhile, I made pancakes. Who's hungry?

Both: Me!

Victoria: Billy.

Billy: Yeah?

Victoria: I'm gonna let you go. It sounds like you and phyllis have your hands full.

Billy: No, it's all good. I just wanted to let you know that reed's here and he's safe.

Victoria: Well, thank you for that. I appreciate it. Look, I'm -- I'm not really comfortable about leaving reed there because his dad and I need to talk to him about what he did.

Billy: I tell you what, vick. He can stay here tonight. One night only, okay? Give everybody a chance to simmer down a little bit. Tomorrow I will drive him back to you.

Victoria: Okay, fine.

J.T.: Thanks.

Billy: Yeah. You can stay here tonight. One night only. No discussion. Go eat something. Yeeeeaaaahhh!

Phyllis: You know what mystifies me?

Billy: What?

Phyllis: Victoria. She's the perfect mother. Has the bedtime stories with the morals. Reed ends up coming to us. I mean, we're hardly the parental types.

Billy: Exactly. That's the whole point. He thought he could come here, I'd let him in, stay the night, tell him he's right about everything, and agree that he never has to see his mother again.

Phyllis: Was he ever wrong. You should have seen his face when you told him he couldn't stay with us. It was like you took a bucket, poured it over his head, it was full of ice water.

[ Laughs ] "No discussion."

Billy: It's official. I've become my dad.

Phyllis: Yeah, well, you're a whole lot cuter.

[ Both chuckle ]

J.T.: You know, knowing reed's at billy's thumbing his nose at us makes me want to go over and drag him back here.

Victoria: Yeah, a part of me agrees with that.

J.T.: Oh, just a part of you?

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Well, I have learned a lot this past year with reed. He is a very stubborn kid.

J.T.: [ Chuckles ] You just figuring that out now?

Victoria: Billy made a very valid point. If we try to tell him that there's something that he can't do, then he's just gonna act out again, you know?

J.T.: No, no, not if I talk to him. I was a rebel back in my day. He'll -- he'll listen to me.

Victoria: Yeah, I know. So was I, remember? Now we're these cranky, inflexible adults with a list of "nos" and "shouldn'ts" and "woulds" and "you shoulds." And that's how reed sees it, anyway. What happened to us?

J.T.: We grew up. You know, if you would have told me 20 years ago I'd be taking advice from billy abbott...

Victoria: Well, you know, you can knock the guy as much as you want to, but he's a very good father to our kids, and his and phyllis' relationship is very solid right now. That's why I let the kids stay the past few nights there.

J.T.: [ Sighs ] See? You are not as inflexible or as cranky as reed makes it out to be.

Victoria: All right, well, thank you. I have to get to the office.

J.T.: You know, I got a better idea. Uh, let's take a personal day. Unwind a little bit. We both have a lot on our minds.

Victoria: What?

J.T.: Yeah.

Victoria: Now?

J.T.: Yeah.

Victoria: J.T., No.

J.T.: No, I'll call cane. He's got kids this age. He'll understand.

Victoria: I can't just ditch work on a whim.

J.T.: Why not?

Victoria: Because I'm C.O.O., And my calendar's jammed.

J.T.: Unjam it.

Victoria: Well, no, I can'T. Things are just crazed at newman with all the stress that we're going through right now. I don't know how you expect me to "unwind," as you put it.

[ Chuckles ]

J.T.: You know, when things are going great and you feel like a million bucks, is that when you're supposed to take a day off? No. No, it's when everything's going to hell and, hence, your neck is full of knots because you're so stressed out.

Victoria: Just, I haven't had a chance to book a massage.

J.T.: Well, just like that, your schedule opened up. Isn't that amazing how that works? And if it makes you feel less guilty, I'll do one, too. Swedish, 80 minutes, strictly medicinal.

Victoria: Who says I feel guilty?

J.T.: You, with that, uh, "i got to be responsible look on my face."

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Sometimes...

J.T.: Yeah?

Victoria: ...I just -- I hate how well you know me.

J.T.: Is that a yes?

Victoria: All right, fine. Let's do it.

J.T.: See? That was easy.

Billy: Thank you, hannah! Kids out the door.

Phyllis: High five.

Billy: Now, where's our teenage house guest?

Phyllis: He is upstairs listening to music, insisting that he is not going to school.

Billy: Swell.

Phyllis: But, hey, look on the bright side. This time tomorrow, he'll be victoria's problem again.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Let me see if I can't convince him to make an appearance this afternoon.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Cane: I can't believe you're not even ready.

Billy: For what? Ahhh! We have a meeting.

Cane: Yeah.

J.T.: [ Sighs ] Wow.

Victoria: I know. You know, we really can't let reed give up on his music. He was so down on himself last night.

J.T.: So he didn't get into the summer program at gcu. Oh, well. There will be plenty others. He can't stop writing and playing music just because of one rejection. That's part of it.

Victoria: We need to teach him to believe in himself again. He's got to have a thicker skin, you know, because whatever he decides to do in his life, he can't give up just because -- just because things don't go his way.

J.T.: Well, I hope he didn't get that from me.

Victoria: No, don't say that.

J.T.: You know, sometimes when I'm staring up at the ceiling at 3:00 A.M., Recounting my many failures, I can't help but wonder if I didn't try hard enough.

Victoria: With mackenzie?

J.T.: And you.

Victoria: Well, I can't really speak for mac, but I'm as much to blame as you are for our marriage falling apart. That's true. Neither one of us tried very hard.

J.T.: But I am happy about one thing. How well we get along now. A lot better than when we first broke up.

Victoria: Yeah, I'm happy about that, too.

J.T.: Then it's unanimous.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ]

[ Doorbell rings ]

J.T.: No, don't do it. We're on vacation.

Victoria: Well, when have i ever been able to ignore a ringing anything?

J.T.: Hmm.

[ Door opens ]

Nikki: Hi, sweetheart! Your assistant said that you had taken the day off, so I thought that we could -- am I interrupting?

Cane: You're the one who insisted that we drive together.

Billy: Because I figured we could go over strategy for the meeting.

Cane: Okay, but, billy, you're not even dressed.

Billy: Cane, it's been a chaotic morning, all right?

Cane: Okay. All right, sure. Well, why don't you tell that to lawler, because I'm sure he's going to understand.

Billy: The old man's gonna be there?

Cane: Yeah. The old man's gonna be there, billy. The chairman emeritus, okay? And when he sees you in your sweatpants, I don't think he's gonna think you put much thought into pitching his company.

Phyllis: Okay, cane, have you had some coffee today? I just made some. I could also make you something to eat while billy pulls himself together.

Cane: I appreciate it. I'm okay. Okay, all right. So this is the "chaos" you're referring to, I imagine.

Billy: Why don't you just lay off him, all right? He's had a rough time.

Cane: You do realize that mattie went out of her way to help you and only wound up getting hurt. Do you know what?

Reed: I'd really rather not talk about that right now.

Cane: He doesn't want to talk about it.

Billy: Cane, just go to the meeting without me, okay? If mom asks, which I'm sure she won't, I'll tell her whatever you need me to say.

Cane: Uh, it's a very generous offer, but unfortunately, billy, it's not gonna work.

Phyllis: If you're capable of running chancellor all alone, surely you will not miss billy for one meeting.

Cane: Uh, I appreciate that. You see, the problem is, is that jill and lawler are old friends, and when they found out that her son was gonna be in the mix, he kind of insisted... that you be there.

Billy: Ah.

Cane: Yeah.

Billy: Because I know how much it killed you to say that, give me five minutes. I'll be ready to rock and roll.

Phyllis: What about reed?

Billy: I'll be an hour or two. Reed, you can stay out of trouble for that long?

Reed: Yeah, I guess.

Billy: Good. Piece of cake. Be back in a second.

Nikki: Reed couldn't see that mouthing off to the judge was only making matters worse?

Victoria: Hopefully he'll learn from the experience.

Nikki: I am appalled by this whole thing! For the two of you to indulge him like this!

J.T.: Hold on a second. How exactly are we doing that?

Nikki: He took off in the middle of the night. He didn't leave you a note, knowing how worried you would be, and now you are letting him stay with billy to dictate how this goes?! All I can say is victor and i would never have stood for this kind of behavior.

Victoria: Really, mom? I think I've had my fair share of mess-ups when I was a kid.

Nikki: We're not talking about you right now.

Victoria: Look, my point is, when your kids grow up, you can't always choose the path that they take.

J.T.: Victoria realized being super strict wasn't gonna work this time. We're gonna let our son calm down and have an adult conversation.

Nikki: Oh. Well, to be perfectly frank, J.T., You haven't been in reed's life the entire year since he ran away from you, so you're the last one who should be weighing in on this.

Ashley: You see, we haven't even finished refurbishing the lab. I don't understand why somebody would sneak in and just trash the place.

Paul: So nobody was working in here?

Ashley: A few technicians, but I wanted to finish the organization myself, and I don't think any of them are capable of this.

Paul: Right. What about a competitor?

Ashley: That doesn't make any sense. They'd be after business records and formulas, not equipment and ingredients.

Paul: And none of your files or computers were disturbed?

Ashley: Still in my office, locked, and nothing is missing.

Paul: Um, were there any outside workers brought in?

Ashley: Well, we usually keep our renovations in-house, but i can check with jack.

Paul: But it is possible?

Ashley: What are you saying? You think a contractor snuck in here after hours or something?

Paul: Or someone knew what they were doing here and, uh, figured out a way to break in without triggering the alarm. I mean, this kind of thing happens a lot more than you would think, especially when there are chemicals and drugs involved.

Ashley: I guess that makes sense when you think about the world we live in, right?

Paul: Yeah. I'm gonna have to look at all your security footage, as well.

Ashley: Yes, of course. And just so you know, anybody that has access to this floor is gonna get a new keycard.

Paul: Good thinking. You might review, uh, all your security procedures, as well.

Ashley: Working on it right now.

Paul: Okay. Were you able to identify everything that was damaged or stolen?

Ashley: Um...not yet. But I think there are some bottles missing.

Paul: All right, the sooner you can get us a complete inventory, the better.

Ashley: Okay. I'll get that done for you.

Paul: I'm gonna leave joe here to gather evidence. Meanwhile, after you figure out what's missing, see if you can, uh, think about a possible motive. Who would break in overnight and steal those particular chemicals.

Ashley: Okay.

Paul: Joe.

J.T.: Legally, I have custody of reed, which entitles me to have an opinion about how my son's being raised.

Victoria: That's true. But also --

Nikki: Reed was drinking that night because he was upset that you and mackenzie had broken up, yet you were oblivious!

J.T.: Where do you get off lecturing me after all the times you've been divorced?

Nikki: Excuse me?

J.T.: Yeah, how you and victor raised your kids?

Nikki: Hey! Both of our kids always had access to both of their parents, unlike poor reed, who was ripped away from his mother!

J.T.: You know, a judge sided with me about who would provide a better environment for our son!

Nikki: Judges are not always infallible!

Victoria: Mom --

Nikki: Reed, if he had his mother's influence, would not be in trouble right now!

J.T.: You don't know that, nikki.

Victoria: I think you should leave right now.

Nikki: I'll do that. And I will personally straighten reed out, since neither of his parents seem to be equipped to do it!

J.T.: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: Nikki.

Nikki: Where is my grandson?

Phyllis: Upstairs.

Nikki: Reed! Reed, come down here, please! I need to talk to you!

Phyllis: Pleasure to see you, nikki.

Nikki: Reed!

Reed: Grandma, hey, what's going on?

Nikki: Get your things together. You're coming with me.

Reed: So I guess you talked to mom, then.

Nikki: Yes, she and your father told me everything.

Reed: Well, did she happen to mention boarding school and how thrilled she is to get rid of me?

Nikki: You know what? I am not interested in your spin on this. I don't want to hear any tales of woe to cloud the issue. In fact, if you say another word, I'll go to the judge personally and see to it that you serve time.

Reed: Grandma, geez! Wh--

Nikki: Come on. Let's go. Pick your stuff up. Now! March.

[ Door closes ]

Billy: Well, I got to say, I'm impressed as hell. I didn't think you were capable of charming anybody. We might actually pull this deal off, cane.

Cane: Yeah, imagine that.

Billy: [ Sighs ] Yep. You know, we didn't pitch a lot together at brash & sassy, so I'm really glad I saw it in person.

Cane: Yeah, so you figured i was some stiff who had no idea what he was doing. Is that it?

Billy: Precisely, yeah.

Cane: Okay, well, you see, I'm just kind of relieved you didn't try and take over the discussion when you weren't prepared.

Billy: I think it was clear that me being there was enough for lawler's brass. So, lunch is on me, all right? Actually, no, it's not. It's on the company. You want to sit at the bar? You want to grab a table? Hey.

Cane: Hey, hey, hey, hey.

Billy: Why are you distracted?

Cane: It's none of your business.

Billy: Answer the question.

Cane: Please give me back the phone.

Billy: Texting lily?

Cane: We're not going there.

Billy: We're not gonna go where?

Cane: Excuse me. Uh, table for two, please.

Billy: To paris with abby? Hmm? Who's never really been known to sit in a hotel room and watch tv? Thank you, sir.

Cane: All right, that's -- that's enough, okay? That's enough.

Billy: Well, I'm just telling you. I mean, there's two gorgeous women walking around the ooh-la-la capital of the world. I'm sure she's having a lot of fun without you.

Cane: Exactly. And that's what I'm afraid of, billy, so I'm trying to create the perfect message so she knows I'm thinking about her.

Billy: Listen to me. When I was trying to get phyllis back, I blew it a few times. I missed a couple key opportunities. I'm gonna be honest with you. I see you doing the same thing right now.

Cane: So, you're trying to tell me that reaching out to her is a mistake?

Billy: No, I'm telling you the way you're doing it, man, it's lame. And I thought you had more game than that.

Cane: You don't know what you're talking about.

Billy: Actually, I do. You love the woman, you're trying to get her back -- you don't text her you miss her. You tell her that you can't live without her, cane. And you're supposed to be a marketing genius?

Cane: Billy, I've got to say something. I'm trying to keep the momentum up here, okay?

Billy: Oh, there's momentum?

Cane: Yeah, momentum, all right? Ever since new year's eve, we just -- everything started moving forward in a positive direction, okay? We tabled the divorce talk. We kissed. All right? So it's like a glimmer of hope that wasn't there before.

Billy: And then she went and booked a trip to paris, and now you're sitting around worrying.

Cane: Okay. So, what am I supposed to do?

Billy: You make it spectacular, man, a grand gesture. You go big or go home. You're competing with paris freaking france, cane, for lily's attention. You got to do whatever you can!

Cane: [ Chuckles ] You know what? You are actually making sense for a change.

Billy: Of course I am. Whoa, hey, where are you going? I'm just about to order some food.

Cane: Food can wait. I'm gonna go and get lily back!

Billy: [ Chuckles ]

Victoria: I really wish you hadn't spoken to my mother that way.

J.T.: Yeah, well, maybe she ought to mind her own business.

Victoria: You know what? I-I would have been happy if she didn't interfere, but you shouldn't have said those things to her. It was rude. It was really disrespectful.

J.T.: Wait, hold on. When did this become my fault?

Victoria: You just couldn't help fanning the flames, could you?

J.T.: Wait, are you saying i shouldn't defend myself? Because I wasn't about to let her think she was right, 'cause she wasn'T.

Victoria: You did take my son out of state, where visitation was virtually impossible. All I had with reed was video chats and -- and short visits. I hardly had any time with my son at all, and quite frankly, i don't know how you had any time with him, either.

J.T.: Meaning?

Victoria: You and mac, you were so busy with D.J., And then you were even busier when the other baby came along.

J.T.: Hold on now! You have -- you have never brought that up before, not one time!

Victoria: It's been a concern of mine for a while, all right? It has! Reed being shortchanged while you and mac just focus on your own kids. I mean, he -- he had felt pushed to the side like he hardly had any adult time whatsoever!

J.T.: This is typical newman stuff here. Side with each other, close the ranks, blaming everybody outside the family for problems they caused! You know, I-I thought things had changed between us. Man, was I naive.

Victor: Well, reed. I am so happy to know that you're gonna live with us for a while.

Reed: You know what I did?

Victor: Yes. Your grandmother told me. I also agree with her that it's not a good idea to spend more time with phyllis and billy.

Reed: I don't want to go home. Ever.

Nikki: Well, we'll discuss that in due time.

Victor: Would you like something to eat?

Reed: Yeah, actually, I'm starved.

Victor: Well, if you're starving, then they'll prepare anything you want in the kitchen, okay? Make yourself comfortable.

Reed: [ Sighs ]

Victor: So happy to see you.

Billy: Thank you very much.

[ Clears throat ] Hey, ash.

Ashley: Hey.

Billy: How you doing?

Ashley: You don't want to know.

Billy: Oh, come on. Try me.

Ashley: Okay. So, jack is remodeling the lab as a surprise for me, but it's really for his own self-serving reasons, and somebody broke into it last night.

Billy: What?

Ashley: Yeah.

Billy: Seriously? Why?

Ashley: I have no idea. Haven't even finished setting up, so I don't even know what was taken.

Billy: Sounds like a major pain.

Ashley: Yeah. Glass everywhere. It's a huge mess.

Billy: Have you called the police?

Ashley: Yes, of course. I called paul. He got a man on it, and he was still there when I was investigating.

Billy: I hope you don't think that victoria was behind this.

Ashley: If she did something like that, she'd be after proprietary information, not lab equipment, so...

Billy: So you think it was a random burglary in a part of the building that's harder to get into than fort knox?

Ashley: I don't know. But security is definitely on notice.

Billy: I bet.

Ashley: I can tell you this much. I'm angry. When I find out whoever did this, they're gonna wish they were never born.

Victoria: Yeah, I've decided to come into the office after all. Okay, thanks, nathan. I'll see you soon.

J.T.: No surprise there. When things get too difficult, too real, you just run.

Victoria: Why would I stick around, huh? You made it perfectly clear how you feel about me and my family, without taking any responsibility for relocating to a different state at all or the damage that you've done.

J.T.: You think I did that on purpose? To hurt you? Yeah, of course you did. You know why? Because it's always about you, victoria.

Victoria: You know what? Whether or not the choice was deliberate, the damage is done, all right? It's done! Reed needed his mom! He needed me to be there for him, and you not only took custody, but you made it so difficult for us to see each other! How could you do that to him?

J.T.: Because you were always at work! You were always at work! You were never around! It's easier to avoid me that way, right?

Victoria: [ Sighs ]

J.T.: You didn't want to be with me anymore, so you buried yourself in your profit and loss and your deals!

Victoria: That's because i knew that deep down I didn't have your full love and attention, all right? Deep down, I knew that I wasn't the love of your life. I knew it!

J.T.: I wasn't yours, either! Hell, I mean, the ink wasn't even dry on the divorce papers before you ran off to jamaica and married billy.

Victoria: Is that why you took reed and moved to another state?! To get back at me?!

J.T.: No, I took reed because you were so focused on work! You know, at the end of the day, you were more loyal to victor than you were to me.

Victoria: I chose my husband over my father! I did!

J.T.: For five minutes!

Victoria: What did you expect me to do?! Did you want me to stay home and bake you cookies and play the pretty homemaker to appease you?!

J.T.: No, but you weren't supposed to have a one-night stand with deacon sharpe!

Victoria: Any other ancient history that you'd like to throw in my face right now?!

J.T.: No, that's it. No, that's it. You're a selfish, spoiled princess who takes what she wants without dealing with the consequences! Or maybe you do and you just don't give a damn! You were with brad! You were married to brad when we got together!

Victoria: I am not gonna stand here -- get out! I want you to get out!

J.T.: Hey, look --

Victoria: I'm not gonna stand here and listen to this anymore!

J.T.: Get your hands off me!

Victoria: I don't want to hear your voice or see your face! Get out!

[ Breathing heavily ]

Reed: [ Sighs ]

Victor: So, it's hit the spot?

Reed: Totally.

Victor: Would you like something else?

Reed: Actually, you got any cake?

Victor: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. You can have any dessert your heart desires... after you clean out the stables.

Reed: Um... what?

Victor: You heard me. After you clean out the stables, okay? Clean out the muck. You will call your school. You'll find out what you missed in class. And they'll give you an assignment, and you'll finish that assignment tonight, and you'll return it tomorrow, okay?

Reed: But --

Victor: Yes? What? And your grandmother and I have decided furthermore that you'll also clear your dishes after each meal, and you make your bed in the morning. You rise at 6:00 A.M. You go downstairs, you exercise for half an hour, you take your shower, you have breakfast, and you go to school.

Nikki: One of us will drive you into town and pick you up every day after your last class. Please be outside ready to go.

Reed: [ Scoffs ] This...really wasn't what I was expecting.

Victor: I'm sure it wasn'T. But trust me when I tell you, this will be very good for you. It's good to have a routine. It's good to have to do chores. I want you to consider this your own personal boot camp. Like any good soldier, you will start by getting your hair cut.

Reed: What?! No!

Nikki: And you won't be leaving here until you've learned discipline and understand the seriousness of your actions.

Victor: And should you entertain the notion of leaving this compound or this town, you know that your grandfather has a vast array of private investigators, people who work for me, security people. They will find you, and they'll bring you back. You got it?

Reed: I got it.

Victor: Now, you know the way to the stables, I'm sure?

Reed: Yeah.

Victor: And kindly carry out your dishes.

Ashley: Ah.

Billy: Feel better?

Ashley: It's gonna take a hell of a lot more than a chardonnay.

Billy: Okay, what if I throw in dinner? Will you tell me what's really got you bothered? I mean, like the real reason?

Ashley: It's not enough that my lab got broken into? Really?

Billy: Okay, the burglar probably made off with nothing, right? Nobody got hurt. Security's gonna do their job. Life goes in. You and jack are working through your issues, right?

Ashley: Think again.

Billy: Ah. That's what it is. Didn't you agree to postpone the arbitration?

Ashley: It's back on. It starts next week.

Billy: Sorry to hear that.

Ashley: Hmm. Jack left me no choice, okay? We have to decide who is the C.E.O. Or who isn't the C.E.O. We need to figure that out.

Billy: You mind if I ask you what jack did to set you off?

Ashley: Okay, I-I thought that jack and I were on the same page, you know, trying to protect our mother from that parasite graham. Then I realized that he was just trying to distract me from his real agenda, okay? He tried to manipulate me again. And it's gonna take a hell of a lot more than remodeling the lab to get me to look the other way.

Billy: Well, jack obviously forgot who he was dealing with.

Ashley: I'm not gonna let him play games anymore, not when the future of the company is at stake. We've got to put this leadership issue to rest so we can put our attention back on dina.

Billy: Speaking of, how's she doing?

Ashley: Oh, my god. You're not gonna believe this.

Billy: What?

Ashley: Remember when graham took mother to florida after her stroke, okay? They got married.

Billy: What?

Ashley: Yeah. I mean, it's a sham, of course. He did this just so he could hold on to her finances.

Billy: Hold on a second, okay? She's got alzheimer'S. She doesn't remember one day to another. Plus a stroke on top? How does he think he's gonna get away with that?

Ashley: Graham knows quite well that dina is not competent, but the problem is, she could have been lucid the day that they got married, and the justice, of course, wouldn't have known the difference. So maybe the judge will say she was of sound mind on the day of the wedding, and that's all graham needs.

Billy: So what happens now?

Ashley: Well, michael is fighting through legal channels. And there's one thing that jack and I agree on. We have got to get rid of that sleaze for good.

J.T.: Victoria! Hey, can I at least have my coat? It's really cold out here!
