Episode #11325 ~ J.T. and Victoria present a united front to Victor; Billy offers Chelsea advice; Phyllis plays matchmaker for Hilary.

Provided By Suzanne

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

Victoria: Maybe we should discuss how we're gonna tell reed and the kids that you're moving in.

Billy: I watched J.T. Hurt her over and over from a front-row seat. Victoria's making a huge mistake.

Devon: We need to talk about what happened yesterday on "the hilary hour."

Tessa: I don't know why mariah overreacted the way she did, on camera.

Mariah: Those are my words! Mine! Not yours!

Devon: It's because she thinks that you stole what she wrote and turned it into your new song. Is that true or not?

Phyllis: I'm very impressed. I wouldn't have thought you'd know one end of a baby from the other.

Nikki: We are going to buy the apartment building that kathy was evicted from. We're going to fix it up, and low-income people will have a very nice place to stay.

Chelsea: This is exactly what I needed after the day I had.

Nick: Why don't you tell me all about it?

Chelsea: Mm, it's okay. I think I'd rather get lost in the moment.

[ Cellphone rings ] Mm, no! No!

Nick: I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Chelsea: Let it go to voicemail.

Nick: It might be an emergency.

Chelsea: [ Sighs ]

Nick: It might be an emergency. Hey, what's up? What?

[ Sighs ] Yeah, uh... yeah. I'm glad you called. That is bad. Okay, just -- hang tight. I'm on my way. It was an emergency.

Chelsea: What's going on?

Nick: A pipe burst at the building. I -- I got to hit pause on our evening.

Chelsea: Well, do you have to go? I mean, isn't that, like, a contractor's job or something?

Nick: My mom and I agreed to oversee all of the maintenance and renovations so we could stay under budget. You know, if we can keep the costs low, then we can keep the rents low. But I can skip this one if you want me to...

Chelsea: No, it's okay.

Nick: And I will.

Chelsea: People are counting on you, it's okay.

Nick: Are you sure? I'm gonna make it up to you times 100. Times 1,000. All right? I promise.

Phyllis: What are you doing?!

Billy: Surprising you. Sweeping you off your feet and taking you to dinner. I made a reservation at this restaurant where you eat in the dark, and it's supposed to enhance your other senses, like your hearing...

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. Uh-huh.

Billy: ..And your smell... ...and your taste.

Phyllis: Mm. As pleasurable as that all sounds and feels, we already have plans tonight.

Billy: We do?

Phyllis: We're gonna be part of a foursome. You are such a bad boy.

Billy: What?

Phyllis: It's a double date.

Mariah: Hot date?

Hilary: Oh, no, no, no. We are not doing this -- girlfriends, giggling and talking about boys.

Mariah: What? God no. I just figure if this guy's gonna get trapped in your web, it's my civic duty to warn him.

Hilary: You're hilarious.

Mariah: So, who is the unlucky guy?

Hilary: I don't kiss and tell.

Mariah: Yes, you do.

Hilary: Well, this is our first date, okay? So I want to -- I want to be discreet.

Mariah: Really? Like you're not gonna come in here tomorrow and spill all the gory details of this date on air. So, is he drop-dead gorgeous, or just easy on the eyes? Tall, short? Six pack, no pack?

Hilary: I -- I don't know.

Mariah: This guy doesn't have a picture in his dating profile?

Hilary: Instead of cross-examining me, why don't you just run along and do some prep work, okay?

Mariah: Oh, no, no, no. You're not gonna bob and weave your way out of this one. So, did you meet him on a dating app?

Hilary: I am not discussing my personal life with you.

Mariah: So that's a no. Okay, so you don't know what he looks like, you didn't meet him online...

Hilary: Drop it.

Mariah: It's a blind date.

Hilary: Fine. Okay? You're right. Happy now?

Mariah: Yes, I am beyond happy because the queen bee of gc buzz, a woman that, according to you, no man can resist, has to be set up.

Hilary: Says the woman who spends her free time writing lovelorn thoughts in her journal about someone who doesn't want her. Sorry, you are in no position to be mocking anyone's personal life.

Tessa: So, mariah told you about her journal?

Devon: Yes, she did. She said it would prove that you used her words for your song. And then I asked if I could see the journal, but she refused.

Tessa: So, where does that leave us? Did mariah say anything to you that made you doubt me?

Devon: No, she didn'T. I don't think that you plagiarized anything. But we're gonna have our work cut out for us if we're gonna convince the public of that because mariah's taking this as a personal attack, and she has a platform that she can use to her advantage to persuade people that she is the victim, which is why I need you to do whatever it takes to make things right with her.

Tessa: And if I can't?

Devon: That is not an option because there is way too much riding on this song.

Victoria: Reed should be here soon. Do you think we should practice what we're gonna say to him?

J.T.: Well, I guess we can't tell him we just want to have incredible sex all the time, right? [ Chuckles ]

Victoria: [ Chuckles ]

[ Cellphone rings ] No. Hi, mom. What?

[ Sighs ] Thank you for letting me know. Would you tell me if you hear from him, and I'll let you know if I hear from him, as well? All right. I love you.

J.T.: What happened?

Victoria: Reed didn't show up for community service. Mom tried calling him, but he didn't answer.

[ Sighs ] Now he's not picking up for me, either. You don't think he's run away again, do you?

Tessa: Hey.

Mariah: [ Scoffs ] If you're looking for more inspiration, you can go somewhere else because my journal's locked up tight.

Tessa: Mariah, I didn't --

Mariah: Yes, you did. And you know how I know? My journal disappeared right after I told you I was writing down my thoughts, and then it reappeared right before you performed on the show. And then the words in your brand-new song sounded exactly like words that I wrote down.

Tessa: It sounds like you misplaced it while you were working.

Mariah: [ Scoffs ] Yeah. Here's the thing about that. I know for a fact that the place that I found it was somewhere i had already looked. And I'm not a genius at math, but when I add it all together, it equals you stealing my journal and my words.

Tessa: Well, I'd say that it adds up to a series of weird coincidences.

Mariah: [ Scoffs ] Okay.

Tessa: We've always had a special connection. With one look, we've had entire conversations. Is it such a stretch to think that we'd be feeling the same emotions? And that I used similar phrases to describe them?

Mariah: When it's word for word? Yep.

Tessa: But it wasn't word for word.

Mariah: "Saw myself through your eyes, can't believe that i had these thoughts, not sure if I got it right, I feel so out of place." Those are my words that I wrote down.

Tessa: And thoughts that I've had, too.

Mariah: [ Scoffs ]

Tessa: I accept that it might sound similar.

Mariah: Even the title. "How can a lie feel so true?" I wrote that down exactly! That's not similar, that's theft.

Tessa: Okay. I read your journal. But not to plagiarize anything.

Mariah: Wow. She admits it -- only not.

Tessa: I missed you. I wanted to know what you were thinking, feeling. Reading your words was the next best thing to talking to you. You barely acknowledge my existence, even when we're in the same room.

Mariah: So now you stealing my journal is my fault. You know what, you are unbelievable. You chose to broadcast my personal feelings, feelings that are so personal that I couldn't even say them out loud, to the entire world. You chose to betray me in the worst way possible. All so you could write a hit song. Is that really how little I mean to you?

J.T.: What do you think you're doing?

Reed: Dad, what's up?

J.T.: Everybody's been trying to get ahold of you, man. Why haven't you answered your phone?

Reed: Because it's dead.

J.T.: Patio. Now.

Reed: [ Scoffs ] What?

J.T.: Now means now! Come on, man! Let's go!

Reed: Whoa! Hey! What's the matter with you?

J.T.: Skipping community service -- do you realize what kind of trouble you're in? And not just with the judge, with me!

Reed: Are you not gonna let me explain?

J.T.: I don't care about your excuses, man.

Reed: Why are you freaking out on me in front of my friend? That's so embarrassing and a total mom move. Not something you would do. I thought we were cool.

J.T.: We were until you pulled this little stunt!

Sharon: Okay, hey, you guys, take a break. Why don't I, um, get you some drinks, and that will give you a chance to discuss whatever this is without an audience?

J.T.: Go get your stuff. We've leaving. Teenagers, huh?

Sharon: Yeah, I remember all too well. Maybe I could give you some pointers. What happened?

J.T.: Reed got a dui.

Sharon: [ Gasps] Oh, no.

J.T.: You'd think he'd want to stay out of trouble, but not so much. No, he's been living with nikki and victor, things have gotten so out of hand.

Sharon: That's why I've been seeing him on the property more often.

J.T.: Yeah. I'm trying to get through that thick head of his, but he -- he's got to understand how serious this situation is.

Sharon: Noah pushed my buttons a lot, too, when he was a teen, but with a lot of patience and love and determination, we got through it. You and reed will, too.

J.T.: Yeah, well, that day can't come soon enough.

[ Chuckles ]

Billy: You know, once you set up the date, you're supposed to walk away, not chaperone.

Phyllis: You know, hilary might need a little backup if this date doesn't go well tonight, if it goes south, but i don't think so. I'm putting my money on it that it won'T.

Billy: Oh, is that right? Okay. I'll bet you $100 that this date ends as an epic fail.

Phyllis: Uh, you think I'm gonna let you gamble?

Billy: Oh, come on, fun police. It's just a friendly wager with my lady love. I'm not gonna fall into a downward spiral.

Phyllis: $200 they go on a second date.

Billy: You're on.

Phyllis: What makes you so sure that tonight will be a bust?

Billy: It's simple. Hilary's only interested in one person, and that is herself.

Phyllis: Mm.

Billy: Why are you so sure it's gonna be love at first sight?

Phyllis: I happen to know hilary a little better than you, and my matchmaking skills have been on point.

Billy: Mm.

Phyllis: And because of that.

Billy: Damn.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. You look fabulous! Doesn't she look fabulous?

Billy: Yeah, she looks great.

Hilary: Well, I thought my date would be here for my grand entrance.

Phyllis: Okay, he will be here in a minute. A meeting went late.

Hilary: Do you know who's joining us? Because phyllis over here, she's been a little stingy with the details.

Billy: She's been extra stingy with me. I didn't know about this thing till 30 minutes ago.

Hilary: Come on, you must have done a pre-interview. Just give me -- give me something.

Phyllis: All right, he is a successful executive who is interested in a serious relationship, not a hookup. He's the kind of guy that you can build a future with. And he's smart, he's cultured...

Billy: [ Yawns, snores ]

Phyllis: ..And he's ridiculously cute -- ignore him. How does that sound? Doesn't that sound good?

Hilary: I can't wait to meet him.

Phyllis: Good. Good. Because he's here. Yeeeeaaaahhh!

Phyllis: Well, I for one cannot wait for the warmer weather. How about you guys?

Hilary: Well, cold weather means boot season, and I found this amazing new website with these incredible designs, so i can stand a few more weeks of snow.

Ravi: It's the slush I can't handle.

Phyllis: Slush is awful.

Billy: Are we honestly talking about weather right now?

Phyllis: If you don't like the subject, then change it.

Billy: Okay, I will.

Phyllis: Okay. Go ahead.

Billy: I'm thinking.

Phyllis: We're waiting.

Billy: Will you stop pressuring me, please?

Phyllis: Okay, okay. Say the first thing that pops into your mind.

Billy: What made you think these two would be a good match? Honestly, I'm just kind of, you know, saying what everybody else is thinking, so...

Ravi: Well, I -- I wasn't think that.

Hilary: No, I wasn't thinking that, either.

Billy: Oh, come on. Really? I mean, you love the spotlight and being out there all socially, and you love being locked in your office in the dark coding throughout the night. I mean...

Ravi: That's a very broad, and if you don't mind me saying, extremely simplistic assumption.

Billy: Okay, fair enough. Why don't you enlighten me?

Ravi: People are more than stereotypes, man. Yeah, I'm a software engineer. That defines what I do, not who I am.

Phyllis: Hear, hear.

Billy: Mm.

Hilary: You have a way with words.

Ravi: Oh, credit my mother. She insisted I joined the debate team. Built my confidence and taught me how to use words as a weapon.

Hilary: [ Chuckles ] Are you close with your mom?

Ravi: Yeah, very. And my father.

Hilary: What do your parents do?

Ravi: My dad's a physicist at nasa, mom is a surgeon.

Hilary: Impressive. Sounds like your family's gene pool is a-plus.

Ravi: I suppose.

Hilary: Fit, too. Do you work out?

Ravi: Yeah, when I can.

Hilary: How about, um, health issues?

Ravi: Uh, well, do seasonal allergies count?

Hilary: It does, but there are holistic remedies for that, so...

Billy: Devon! Hey! Come on over! Come and say hi! Oh, come on. Just for a second.

Devon: Hey, guys. Is this a, uh, work thing?

Hilary: We're actually on a double date.

Devon: Oh, that is -- that is awesome. Well, let me get out of your hair and give you some privacy, then.

Billy: No, where you headed?

Devon: Just going to the gym, taking a little break from work.

Billy: Come on. Look at this guy, huh? He doesn't have to go to the gym. Join us. Have a seat.

Devon: I'm okay, billy, thank you, but, uh, you have yourself a good night.

Ravi: I wonder who's ex-spouses are gonna show up now. Hopefully none of mine.

Hilary: You have ex-wives?

Ravi: No, I was kidding. Just trying to ease the tension.

Hilary: There's no tension. Devon and I, we've moved on. We're just really good friends.

Nick: For black coffees and ham sandwiches to go, please.

Sharon: Aren't the kids a little young for caffeine?

Nick: They're for my crew.

Sharon: Oh. Hmm. Okay. Your crew.

Nick: Well, arturo's crew. He's one of the contractors for this apartment building mom and I bought. We had a maintenance issue come up, and I'm just overseeing the work.

Sharon: You know, kathy and the kids are really excited to be moving back into their apartment. Knowing that you're overseeing the repairs and reversing the rent increase, it's a load off their mind. And it's not just kathy you're helping. It's all those people who called that building home. I'm really proud of you, nick.

Hilary: It sounds like you have quite a demanding career.

Ravi: Yeah, it can be pretty overwhelming, but, you know, i can't imagine myself doing anything else.

Hilary: I totally understand. You know, producing and starring in your own daily hit tv show, it's challenging, but it's my name, so I want it to be perfect. Most men are not comfortable with an ambitious woman being in charge.

Ravi: Oh, not me. I admire and respect them.

Phyllis: I tell you, this one's a keeper. [ Chuckles ]

Billy: Look at that. Chelsea's at the bar by herself.

Phyllis: Oh, and that's where she's gonna stay, babe.

Billy: Come on, the more, the merrier, right?

Phyllis: Excuse us. What's your problem right now?

Billy: I'm just trying to help the situation out, bringing in reinforcements to lighten the mood a little bit.

Phyllis: Okay, if you invite chelsea or anyone else, I'm gonna withhold sex.

Billy: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: For a month.

Phyllis: You cannot resist all of this for a month. Okay. All right.

Phyllis: Sorry.

Billy: Excuse me for a sec.

Phyllis: Where are you going?

Billy: I'm just gonna go to the bar.

Phyllis: Billy...

Billy: I'm just gonna say hi, that's all. You're my hero right now.

Chelsea: I don't hear that every day. What did I do?

Billy: Saving me from the living hell of a double date over there.

Chelsea: Hilary and ravi?

Billy: Yeah, for some reason, phyllis thinks it's a good idea. Where's nick?

Chelsea: [ Chuckles ] You'll never guess.

Tessa: You can't leave. Not like this.

Mariah: Get out of my way.

Tessa: I never meant to hurt you. You are still an important part of my life. I'm -- I'm so sorry.

Mariah: You're sorry now? But where was all this remorse when you wrote the song? When you recorded it, when you performed it on live television? Tessa, you had so many opportunities to stop and do the right thing, but you didn't! You think that I was... I was just gonna not say anything, that I would be too ashamed or embarrassed?

Tessa: Not at all! The words you wrote came from your heart. They were beautiful. They inspired me. Because they could be my thoughts or my feelings.

Mariah: [ Scoffs ] What does that mean? Are you saying that you still think about our kiss? Do you wonder what it would be like if we were actually together?

Tessa: I can'T. It's not possible. I'm with noah. If you care about me at all, you won't cause any problems. You'll let devon release the song.

Mariah: [ Scoffs ] You won't reciprocate my feelings, but you'll use them to get what you want. If this is who you are, I don't want to know you anymore.

Tessa: Mariah! Mariah, please! Please, don't mess this up for me! For devon! Wait!

Nick: Ah! Thanks. What do I owe you?

Sharon: Uh, no charge. It's my small contribution to the cause.

Nick: You know, sharon, you have contributed more ways than you know.

Sharon: How so?

Nick: You led by example. You didn't hesitate to jump in there and help when kathy and her family needed someplace to stay. And you showed me that I needed to do more, that I needed to be more. So thanks.

Sharon: You're welcome.

Billy: Who woulda thunk it? Nick newman as a do-it-yourself handy man?

Chelsea: Well, yeah, I mean, it's been a bit of an adjustment.

Billy: Mm.

Chelsea: When he owned the underground, he could create his own hours. Now that he's a landlord, he's on call 24/7, so... it's been a little more disruptive than either one of us could have anticipated. It's, you know...

Billy: Hey, are we calling it a night? Please?

Phyllis: Well, we're just powdering our noses. Hi, chelsea.

Chelsea: Hi.

Phyllis: I think ravi's getting a little lonely over there. Sitting there. Alone.

Billy: Of course, dear. We will talk about the migration patterns of birds and other... riveting things.

Phyllis: Thank you.

Billy: All right.

Phyllis: Very considerate.

Chelsea: Oh! Whew! You better scoot before they come back. Ooh!

Billy: They're not powdering their noses. They're comparing notes about how the date is going. But it does give me a moment to pass on a little wisdom to you.

Chelsea: Okay. Great. This I need to hear.

Billy: Phyllis and I had a couple...moments, and it was all about work, okay? And it almost wrecked our relationship.

Chelsea: Well, nick and I are not, like, wrecked. I mean, we're doing really great, we're strong, so...

Billy: I'm just saying, change can be hard, okay? Now, if you feel like you're being pulled out of your comfort zone one too many times, just saying something. Talk to him about it. It's the best thing you can do. And, of course, do as I say, not as I do.

Phyllis: First impressions.

Hilary: Okay, okay. I have to admit, ravi is not the kind of guy that I normally date, but he is -- he's sweet and he comes from a stable family who apparently are, like, crazy-intelligent.

Phyllis: Yeah, and I've seen that brilliance firsthand at jabot. And even more importantly, he is a super-nice guy.

Hilary: He is a family man, a devoted family man. He would be up for diaper changes and late-night feedings.

[ Sighs ] But, phyllis, I -- ugh, there's no heat.

Phyllis: You got to give that spark a chance to ignite, okay? Billy and I, we did not even get along for years, and then one day, that spark turned into -- an inferno.

Hilary: [ Chuckles ]

Phyllis: Okay, listen. Listen. This is the first time you guys have ever had any quality time together. Given what you want in your future, don't you think he's worth another look?

Billy: All right, let's talk about the, uh, elephant in the room, shall we?

Ravi: There's an elephant?

Billy: You busting me for logging onto the jabot main server using phyllis' computer and dina's password.

Ravi: Right.

Billy: How involved were you in jack's plot to take down brash & sassy? Are you the one that planted the fake documents? Were you responsible for me losing my job and brash & sassy being taken over by newman?

Ravi: Look, as a contract employee, I'm required to carry out whatever duties are assigned to me by my employer as they see fit. You, on the other hand, were under no obligation to spy on your brother using your girlfriend's computer. Whatever ugly fallout there is from the situation... my conscience is clear.

Billy: Good answer. Cheers.

Phyllis: Everything okay over here?

Billy: Oh, yeah, everything's great, right, ravi?

Ravi: Absolutely. Cheers.

Hilary: Cheers.

Reed: He stormed into the coffeehouse, grabbed me in front of lacie, and dragged me out onto the patio. How fair is that?

Victoria: Your father was upset, and he had every right to be. You went off the grid!

Reed: It wasn't my fault, though! My phone died!

J.T.: Hey. Check your attitude, man.

Reed: You two are blowing this way out of proportion, and if you would just let me explain, then you'd see why.

Victoria: Okay, tell me. Why did you not go to community service?

Reed: Because I picked up trash yesterday so that I could study for a big test today. Call my supervisor! He'll tell you I've been there every time! I haven't missed a day. Will you please cut me some slack now? I'm taking this seriously.

Victoria: All right, look, maybe we blew this out of proportion. I owe you an apology. I guess maybe we jumped to the wrong conclusion.

J.T.: You know, all this could have been handled really easily with a text yesterday, when you still had battery on your phone. You got to get better at communicating.

Victoria: We all do. And your dad and I need to work on our listening skills. Come on. We're in this together, we're a family.

Reed: All right. Great. Fine. Now, will one of you please take me back to the ranch?

Victoria: Why don't we all sit down?

Reed: Why? What's up now?

J.T.: Well, uh, we need to discuss something with you.

Reed: Well, nothing good after "sit down," so I'm gonna keep standing, thank you.

Victoria: It's not bad news. It's quite the opposite.

J.T.: Yeah. I moved in.

Victoria: And we want you to come home.

Reed: So, are you guys, like, together again?

Victoria: I know it seems sudden.

Reed: When did you two decide to play house again?

[ Doorbell rings ]

J.T.: Ignore it. Ignore it.

[ Ringing continues ]

Victoria: It's just gonna keep ringing. Hey. Come in.

Victor: Reed.

Sharon: Oh, sweetie. I can't imagine the emotions that must be swirling around in your head right now. It might help to talk about it.

Mariah: Well, I certainly won't be writing them down. I don't know, I feel angry, betrayed, disrespected. Those are the big three. Confused is up there, too.

Sharon: Confused about what?

Mariah: Because I really don't know what to do next. I don't want to ruin tessa's career or tank devon's label. But what if the song is a massive hit? I hate the idea of hearing the song -- I mean, my intimate thoughts -- on the radio when I'm driving or when I'm shopping at a store. Or watching a bunch of strangers singing it at karaoke.

Sharon: You know, it's amazing -- after everything you've been through in the past few days, you're still looking out for devon and tessa. And what she did, using you to get ahead, that proves that she's not your friend, despite what she says. If she's not backing down, neither should you.

Sharon: You've always stood up for yourself. You can't stop now.

Hilary: When you're not spending long hours at the office, working alone, what do you like to do for fun?

Ravi: Oh, where do I start? I love edm music, I love to go to the opera, discovering new eclectic restaurants, long weekends in new york... wow, the only thing missing is "long walks on the beach" and "seeking a partner in crime" to make my life sound like a truly horrible dating profile.

Hilary: [ Chuckles ] No. All of those activities, they sound...perfect. I would definitely swipe right.

Phyllis: Whoops. I'll take my winnings in small bills, thank you.

Billy: The night is still young, darling.

Phyllis: Defeat is imminent. You guys, you have a lot in common. You got movies, you got books...

Billy: What about kids?

Ravi: What do you mean?

Billy: Well, ravi, I'm just wondering...

Phyllis: Billy.

Billy: ...If you're interested in having kids.

Phyllis: Hey. Okay.

Billy: Phyllis mentioned to me that hilary is, and she's actually looking to make it happen asap.

Ravi: [ Coughs ] Sorry.

Hilary: Uh...

Nikki: Your grandfather and i are relieved you're safe.

Reed: I'm sorry. I honestly didn't mean to freak you guys out.

Victor: You made a mistake, learn from it, and move on, okay?

Reed: Yes, sir.

Nikki: He's not gonna get off scot-free, though. On the way over here, victor and I were discussing appropriate punishments.

Victor: Some extra chores, and you start first thing in the morning, all right?

Nikki: What? Is something wrong?

Victoria: Reed, would you go up and check on the kids, please?

Reed: No problem.

Victor: Has he been upset about staying at the ranch?

J.T.: Look, victoria and i decided it's time for reed to move back home. With both of his parents.

Nikki: What? What, are you living together?

J.T.: Yeah.

Victor: Since when?

J.T.: Since yesterday.

Nikki: You just recently reconnected. This is a little...rushed, don't you think?

Victor: You both know there's a lot to consider.

Nikki: Your history, your children...

Victoria: J.T. And I are not taking this step lightly. We've discussed all of the things that you've mentioned, and more, and quite frankly, given your history of breaking up and getting back together, you two are really in no position to judge. We're not looking for your permission, but we would like to have your blessing and your support. Can we have that?

Victoria: Deciding to live together and to be a family again, it's the best thing that's happened to me in a long time.

J.T.: I feel the same way. But I get it, you have questions -- my relationship status with mac probably being the biggest one.

Nikki: Yeah. You are still married.

Victoria: They have been separated for a while.

J.T.: My marriage with mac ended a long time ago, way before coming back to genoa city was even on the radar. But now that I'm here, this feels like where I belong. It feels like home.

Nikki: Well, we want you to be happy, darling.

Victoria: I am. Very.

Nikki: Then I wish you two well.

Victoria: Dad?

Victor: If that's what the two of you want, but reed is another matter. I think he should continue living on the ranch for the foreseeable future.

J.T.: Look, his time at the ranch has obviously had a positive effect on his attitude, and we're happy for you to spend as much time as you want with him, but reed is our responsibility. We got to teach him right from wrong. We plan to do it together.

Phyllis: What is your problem? Why would you put hilary on the spot like that? Is winning this bet so important to you?

Billy: You want to know the real reason why I brought up the baby bombshell? That is not a date. That is an interview. Right now, poor ravi has no idea what's going on, okay? And us guys have to stick together.

Phyllis: "Us guys?" That's your justification?

Billy: I am doing hilary a favor because they are having an open, honest discussion right now, not beating around the stroller, okay? This is good for her.

Hilary: Obviously that is not the way that I wanted you to find out. But it's true, I -- I do want a child. So I need to consider all of my options.

Ravi: Of course, I mean, that's, um...

Hilary: You don't have to say anything.

Ravi: Look, you are an incredible, dynamic, beautiful woman, but we're in very different places. I'm not interested in being a dad at this point in my life.

Hilary: I understand.

Ravi: I think it's probably best for everyone if I just say good night. I'm not sure what the protocol is here, but I really do hope you find what you're looking for. I know the right guy's out there for you.

Mariah: Hey. You busy?

Devon: Hey. No, nothing that I can't finish later. How did your talk with tessa go? Were you guys able to smooth everything over? Are you all right with us releasing the song?

Mariah: You sent tessa to talk to me?

Devon: Well, I mean, i thought that you guys could at least come to some kind of understanding.

Mariah: We didn't because what she did was straight-up plagiarism. She knows it, I know it.

Devon: Well, you know, the thing about that, mariah, is without proof to back up your claim, it's just one person's word against the other.

Mariah: [ Scoffs ] Read this, then tell me who's lying. Oh, dishwasher,

Nick: [ Exhales sharply ]

Chelsea: Welcome home.

[ Keys rattle ]

Nick: What's up?

Chelsea: I just thought we'd pick up where we left off. You have something on your face. No. Let me.

Nick: Look at you. I'm sorry I had to leave you earlier.

Chelsea: All that matters is that you're back, and we have all night.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Well, apparently reed would rather tell a bedtime story to his brother and sister than come down here and discuss our new living arrangement.

[ Sighs ] Just -- maybe he needs time to calm down. I don't know, I'm just worried about him, that's all.

J.T.: Hey, shh, all right? Don't worry about this stuff, okay? Everything's gonna be fine. I'm here now. I can handle this.

Tessa: What -- what's going on?

Sharon: What you did is unconscionable. Mariah is devastated.

Tessa: So am I. I miss the friendship that we had, the connection. I mean, I honestly don't know how we ended up so far apart.

Sharon: Really? No idea? Mariah and I had a heart-wrenching talk months ago. She confided in me. She told me everything that happened between you two.

Tessa: I know what you're thinking, but it was just one kiss. I am committed to noah. I have feelings for him, I do, and I would never, ever do anything to intentionally hurt him.

Sharon: I want to believe that -- I really do -- because i know how much noah thinks of you, but after finding out what you've been up to, what you're capable of, I'm extremely skeptical.

Tessa: I'll prove it to you, I promise.

Sharon: Well, you can try, but it won't be easy. Because I'm now done giving you the benefit of the doubt. I'm gonna be watching every move you make.

Devon: Tessa's lyrics do contain a number of phrases that match what's in your journal.

Mariah: And did you happen to notice the date? I wrote this entry the day before tessa recorded her song, and now that you have proof, can you just forget about this and not release the song?

Devon: You and I both know that there's more to a song that just the lyrics. Tessa wrote the music, she composed the melody. And that journal, it's not copyrighted. So, I mean, this is not legally a theft. I mean, this happens all the time, where two people will literally write almost the same thing.

Mariah: Are you serious? Devon, she took my words and used them. You can't ignore that!

Devon: I'm not ignoring it, I'm just trying to -- I'm trying to find a way that we can make this work for everyone. What if I gave you co-writing credit on it? You can collect the royalties. I have no doubt that this song is gonna blow up, and when it does, you could end up making a decent amount on it.

Mariah: Theft, plagiarism, bribery -- is this how you run a company?

Devon: No, I'm trying to find a resolution that we can all live with.

Mariah: The only resolution i will accept is you giving me the master so I can destroy it.

Devon: I can't do that. I really can't, okay? I understand that you're hurt, i do, and I don't want to add to your pain, but this song could really be a hit, and I need you to understand that for me.

Mariah: I need you to understand this -- find another song because if you release this one, I'll sue.

Phyllis: You can use this to pay for the dinner you sabotaged tonight.

Billy: Listen, hilary, I --

Phyllis: I apologize for the way my boyfriend mouthed off tonight.

Hilary: Actually, billy helped me realize something tonight.

Hilary: Dating, playing the game, just trying to find someone who is not gonna choke on his wine when I tell him what I want, it is time-consuming and it is just a big hassle. So I've decided I don't want a man in my life. I want a baby. So I am gonna find a way to make that happen.
