Provided By Suzanne

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

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.

Michael: The jabot arbitration is set for day after tomorrow.

Ashley: My brother has made a series of decisions that have been detrimental to my family company. I felt no recourse but to call a board meeting. That is when jack revealed that he had added a clause to the bylaws, stating that only a blood abbott could be C.E.O.

Jack: Which way do you think this is gonna go?

Mariah: Those are my words! Mine! Not yours! Find another song, because if you release this one, I'll sue. 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. I'm with noah.

Lily: Your father's home.

Cane: For good this time.

Lily: It's one thing to say that you're gonna raise another woman's child... I just hope that I'm up for it.

Lily: Here you go.

Cane: Oh, baby, you have no idea how much I need that. Thank you.

Lily: Well, I can guess.

[ Chuckles ]

Cane: So, uh, when did you stop taking cream in your coffee?

Lily: Oh, the day after an infant moved in. I forgot how demanding babies are. All night long.

Cane: I'm sorry he woke you up.

Lily: No, it's fine. Just for a few seconds. Since you're the one getting up with him. You know, I would be happy to help out.

Cane: No, you can't do that. You need to get your sleep, okay? You're still trying to prove yourself at newman. Hang on. Oh, no.

Lily: What is it?

Cane: It's bridgette. She's sick.

Lily: Uh, anything I can do to help?

Cane: No, no. It's okay. I'm gonna call for backup.

[ Door opens ]

J.T.: Okay. Per your request, johnny has been delivered to kindergarten and katie to preschool.

Victoria: Thank you. Is there, uh, gas in the car?

J.T.: Uh, well, I didn't fill it up, but...

[ Cellphone chimes ] Ah, it's probably one of those gossipy moms wondering who I am.

Victoria: Thank you for dropping the kids off at school. I really had to focus on that call from beijing.

J.T.: When are you, um... when are you heading to the office?

Victoria: [ Scoffs ] I have a call scheduled for later today. It's actually a confidential video chat. So I figured I'd work from home. Away from prying eyes. Yours being the exception, of course.

J.T.: [ Clears throat ] When did, um, traffic get so crazy around here?

Victoria: Hmm?

J.T.: And by the way, johnny was picking on katie the entire time.

Victoria: Yeah, the trick is to just keep them distracted. Don't worry, you'll get used to the routine.

J.T.: [ Sighs ]

[ Keyboard clicking ]

J.T.: Okay, well, uh, I am gonna grab a shower, okay?

Ashley: Today's the day we hear about the arbitration.

Jack: Yeah, I was just thinking the same thing.

> Ashley: Have you heard anything from michael?

Jack: No, anything from tony?

Ashley: Nope. You seem a little nervous.

Jack: Hardly.

[ Telephone rings ] Michael? No, I couldn't be less interested in taking part in your survey.

Ashley: You're right, you're not on edge at all.

Jack: We'll see who's smiling at the end of the day.

Noah: Expecting a call?

Tessa: [ Sighs ] Not really.

Noah: Why do you keep on checking your phone?

Tessa: Habit.

Noah: Hey, I got an idea. Why don't we do something fun today, like go sledding or snowboarding, or...?

Tessa: Look, I know you're just trying to help.

Noah: I'm just trying to take your mind off of things.

Tessa: Please don'T.

Noah: Okay, well, can we at least talk about? I mean, this must be killing you. You were supposed to be doing pr for your new song today.

Tessa: Can we drop it?

Noah: No, we can't drop it because I don't understand what happened. You and mariah were so close. How did you go from being best friends to her suddenly threatening to sue you?

Tessa: The legal thing's not happening.

Noah: Yeah, because you caved, which...

Tessa: No, devon's my boss, and he doesn't want that kind of bad publicity when they're trying to grow hamilton-winters.

Noah: So you're willing to sacrifice a song that could catapult your career to safeguard devon's corporation?

Tessa: Going to court would be messy for everyone.

Noah: I don't understand. All it would take is just a conversation between you and mariah --

Tessa: Why can't you just let this go? I have. I'll get my big break some other way.

Noah: But your song --

Tessa: Is never going to be released. Sad, but true. Mariah wins this round.

Mariah: [ Laughs ]

Hilary: Well, it looks like we are gonna be getting a lot more than coffee this morning.

Mariah: Ladies and gentlemen, she has found her next victim.

Hilary: Good morning, michael.

Michael: [ Chuckles ] Whatever you are so excited about, I am not interested.

Hilary: Jack told me that the abbott arbitration will be decided later today. Can I get a quote from his star attorney?

Michael: I tell you what, you'll be my first call after they announce jack's victory.

Hilary: I'll take that. Thank you.

Michael: Oh! If you need the name of a good copyright attorney, I'd be happy to recommend one.

Mariah: Excuse me? I heard about what happened, tessa stealing your song, allegedly.

Mariah: Oh, um, you know what, I'm good, but thank you.

Michael: No, right. If you're worried about paying, I can advise you free of charge. Copyright is not my specialty, but I can tell you whether or not your case has merit, so...

Hilary: What do you need?

Mariah: I don't need anything.

Michael: Just to take a look at mariah's writing, compare it to tessa's song, and bada-bing, bada-bing!

Mariah: No, no! I don't need that. I don't want that, thank you.

Hilary: Why not?

Michael: Listen, no pressure. I just wanted you to know that you have me as a resource if you need me.

Mariah: Thank you.

Hilary: [ Chuckles ] You threatened to sue devon and tessa, and now an attorney offers you free advice, and you turn it down? Hmm. What part of the story are you leaving out, hmm?

Gloria: Hey! Did you hear anything?

Jack: Not yet. I don't want to be disturbed.

Gloria: [ Stammers ] Wait!

Jack: Unless it's michael!

Phyllis: Need something warm before you get the bad news?

Ashley: I'm anticipating hearing great news today.

Phyllis: That blood-only amendment that jack added to the jabot bylaws, you know that was because he was divorcing me.

Ashley: Phyllis, I don't need you to explain my brother's actions to me, okay?

Phyllis: Maybe I do, since you seem to be wanting to push him out of his own company.

Ashley: Why do you keep inserting yourself into my family's business? Stop it. You've already done enough damage.

Phyllis: And I'm trying to fix it. He wasn't trying to shut you out, he was aiming that amendment at me, not you.

Ashley: Well, I choose not to be collateral damage.

Phyllis: So why are you suing him, after all the times he stood up for you? You know running jabot is everything to him.

Ashley: Why are you so eager to defend him to me right now? It wasn't that long ago that you were very quick to betray him when you hopped in the sack with his brother.

Phyllis: And just like that was not fair to jack, it is not fair that his sister is trying to push him out.

Ashley: I'm not doing this to jack. I'm doing for me. And for my father's company.

Phyllis: When that decision comes down, I'll be first in line to congratulate jack.

Noah: You need some more coffee?

Tessa: I need you not to be mad at me.

Noah: I'm not mad at you, all right? I'm just sorry that it's my sister who's hurting you. Look, if you don't want to talk to her, let me do it, all right? I'm sure I can --

Tessa: No, mariah's the last person I want you talking to.

Noah: What, are you freaking out about me having a conversation with my sister now? What is that about?

Tessa: No, I -- I just meant that I loved that song. I loved those words and putting it to music and it all coming together. I mean, that -- that almost never happens.

Noah: So why are you walking away without fighting for your work?

Tessa: Because fighting and losing will hurt so much more than just backing away. It took everything in me to admit that it's a done deal, but I have. So, please, don't dredge it all up and drag the pain out of me.

Hilary: Did you really think that I wasn't gonna push you about the way that you overreacted to michael's offer?

Mariah: I need to write the pre-interview questions for today's show.

Hilary: You're just afraid that I am gonna figure out the rest of the story.

Mariah: There is no story.

Hilary: Then why not let tessa release the song?

Mariah: Because she stole it.

Hilary: Like you've never stolen anything.

Mariah: [ Scoffs ] This is none of your business.

Hilary: [ Chuckles ] No, gossip is my business, and this has "hilary hour" lead story written all over it. We've got tessa, the up-and-coming star, we've got devon, the billionaire, and we've got you. Since you've work for me, you've stumbled upon, what, 7 1/2 minutes of fame? Okay, fine, plagiarism is wrong. But it's not the end of the world. Besides, she's already sung a few of your precious lyrics in front of a national audience, so it's already out there.

Mariah: So, what do you want me to do, just let get away with it?

Hilary: No, just cut your losses, and hold out for the money that you can make.

Mariah: What?

Hilary: Devon already told me he's willing to give you a co-songwriter's credit. So take that and the royalties that come with it.

Mariah: No.

Hilary: Why not?

Mariah: Hilary! Would you please back off? There is no "gotcha" moment. There is no this-just-in. There's no deep, dark secret for you to uncover for your audience. It's just the principle of the thing, okay?

Hilary: Nah. You've got a secret.

Cane: I can't get a sitter.

Lily: I'll stay with sam.

Cane: No, baby, you have to go to work.

Lily: No, I already video conferenced with abby this morning since she's on paris time.

Cane: All right, what about victoria?

Lily: I spoke to her. She's fine with me working from home today.

Cane: Are you sure?

Lily: Yes. If I wasn't, I wouldn't have offered.

Cane: All right, um, if you need anything, okay?

Lily: Yes, I have your number, and don't you forget it.

Cane: Hey. That's not all you have. All right? You know, pretty soon, you and sam are gonna inseparable, and he's gonna be like, "daddy who?"

Lily: [ Chuckles ]

Cane: All right. I love you, baby. Bye.

[ Door closes ]

[ Sam crying ]

Lily: [ Sighs ]

Victoria: Would you copy me on that? Great. Thank you.

J.T.: [ Chuckles ] When did you become so physically attached to your devices?

Victoria: I've run huge companies before, but never with two small children and a teenager who's been convicted of a dui.

J.T.: [ Sighs ]

Victoria: So thank god for small devices.

J.T.: Yeah, well, uh, I got a meeting with cane later. Have you, uh -- have you seen my tablet anywhere?

Victoria: The last I saw, johnny was playing a game on it.

J.T.: What? That's not a toy.

[ Computer chimes ]

Victoria: Oh! Okay. Here's my video chat. Oh, no, there's a glitch. They can see me, but I can't hear them.

J.T.: All right, I'll see you later.

[ Door slams ]

Hilary: Well, it is encouraging to know that after such a short time in mainstream, you think that my show is worth that kind of money. Yes, but like I said, there are a few other companies that are interested in buying "the hilary hour," so... no, no, I haven't made any decisions yet. But I promise I will get back to you very soon. Okay. Bye.

Mariah: You're selling the show?

Hilary: Well, I -- I've received a few offers, one from devon, and one from --

Mariah: Why would you do that?

Hilary: It's important to me to be a player in the larger media world.

Mariah: Well, while you're playing at being a player, what happens to the rest of us that work here? Wouldn't a bigger company just replace us with their own staff?

Hilary: I will try to prevent that.

Mariah: Try?

Hilary: I'm not running a charity, okay? I need to secure my finances for me and my baby.

Mariah: Whoa, whoa. Wait, wait. What? You're pregnant?

Hilary: Not yet, but I was serious the other day about wanting a child.

Mariah: Yeah, I -- I thought you meant in the future when you meet a great guy and you get married. Again.

Hilary: There is no man on the horizon, and I'm not waiting for him. Besides, man or no man, I need to be able to guarantee that i can afford a home and a car and insurance and day care and college, and...

Mariah: Can't you ease into it, save a little bit at a time?

Hilary: Mariah, it would take forever to stash that kind of money, okay? I need a big score for immediate expenses and to secure my future.

Mariah: Okay, but --

Hilary: I know what it's like to grow up poor, and that's not happening to my child.

J.T.: Well, this is a perk, breakfast at a place like this instead of stale coffee in a conference room.

Cane: Yeah, but, uh, don't get used it. It's kind of like a time management thing for today 'cause I had a breakfast meeting this morning. I wanted to try and squeeze you in before my lunch meeting so i can get home early.

J.T.: All right, well, what i can do for you?

Cane: Um, I want to talk to you about your next job assignment.

J.T.: Something exciting, i hope.

Cane: Not as far as I'm concerned, but I know you live for this stuff. Our app update's fast approaching.

J.T.: Yeah?

Cane: Yeah.

J.T.: You want me to revisit the configuration, maybe troubleshoot some stuff?

Cane: Uh, no, that's already been done. What I kind of need you to do is work on a security patch.

J.T.: That's -- that's it?

Cane: Yeah. Is that a problem, or...?

J.T.: Well, yeah, it's just a little below my skill level. I mean, you could have a junior it person knock that out. I was kind of hoping for some responsibility.

Cane: You know, we can work on that in the future, but...

J.T.: [ Sighs ]

Cane: When I hired you for this job, you know, you made it pretty clear your focus is that you want to stay in town, be around your son.

J.T.: I don't want to sound ungrateful, but...

Cane: I know that it's a lower-level position, you know, than you were doing in europe. I understand that.

J.T.: Yeah, I bring executive experience to this job, not to mention my european contacts.

Cane: Look, we can work on it, but, you see, the thing is, right now, that's -- that's kind of all I have at chancellor.

J.T.: Did you just hire me 'cause you felt sorry for me?

Cane: No. No. No, I didn'T.

J.T.: All right, you know what, I'm sorry, man. Let's -- let's start this conversation over again, what do you say?

Cane: All right, listen, what's going on, all right? Is it the low-level position, or is it something else? I mean, is there something going on with reed?

J.T.: No, it's not reed. It's victoria.

Victoria: Hello!

Noah: Hey! I stopped by your office. They said you were working from home today.

Victoria: Yeah, emphasis on working.

Noah: Oh, yeah, I'm sorry. I wouldn't bother you, it's just, um, I need some advice from the female perspective, and, uh, since I happen to have an aunt who's both brilliant and female...

Victoria: And full-on busy.

Noah: Come on, even a C.O.O. Has to stop and take a coffee break, right? Look, it's your favorite, caramel mocha cappuccino, straight from the top of the tower.

Victoria: I don't understand. Why didn't you ask your mother for a female perspective? Then you wouldn't have had to ply sharon with coffee. She's got plenty of her own.

Noah: Well, this involves me, my sister, and my girlfriend. Do you think my mom can be objective?

Victoria: Would you pass me that cappuccino?

Noah: Thank you.

Jack: Gloria! I said I didn't want to be disturbed!

Gloria: I tried to stop her, but as you know, your ex-wife can be a very pushy broad!

Jack: Fine, fine. Close the door behind you. I'm not good company.

Phyllis: Because the news about the arbitration hasn't come down yet.

Jack: Like I said...

Phyllis: Why aren't you more confident? You were meant to be ceo of jabot! Yes, your sister is good with chemistry, but it's gonna take a lot more than that to run this company. You are talented! And you have perseverance.

Jack: So does ashley.

Phyllis: All right. So, what if she wins? What are you gonna do?

Jack: I'm not gonna be subordinate to her.

Phyllis: Are you kidding me? I thought you were more evolved than that.

Jack: I have no problem working for a woman. In fact, there was a time i worked for ashley. But not this time! She had no right pulling this coup because I was trying to look out for our mother!

> Phyllis: Would john abbott agree with that?

Jack: Dad adored ashley. In fact, in many ways, she's more like him than I am. But when it came to jabot, we rarely disagreed. He admired my strength, my ambition, my need to win. He'd want me here! And thank you for getting me to say that out loud. Very soon, the world will know that one abbott sibling is destined to run jabot. Me.

J.T.: Even when she's home, she's always on the clock.

Cane: Look, the thing that lily and I learned from working with each other is, you know, you have to be respectful of each other's commitments and realize you can't always be the number-one priority in each other's lives, you know?

J.T.: Yeah, like this morning. Victoria was in full-on work mode, and before I knew it, i was swimming it -- the same resentment, same stress that broke us up.

Cane: So, what, her career is why you guys got divorced?

J.T.: Let's just call it a contributing factor.

Cane: Because you do realize she's not gonna quit and become a homemaker, right?

J.T.: Oh, I know, believe me. I was so frustrated with the way she was ignoring me this morning, I wanted to slam that laptop closed.

Cane: Okay, but you didn'T.

J.T.: No, but I slammed the door.

[ Both chuckle ] It was stupid. I felt like an idiot when I got to the car. You got work to do, man. I don't know why I'm telling you all this.

Cane: No, it's okay. It's okay. I asked.

J.T.: Yeah, but I didn't mean to unload on you, you know. It's unprofessional, and to be honest with you, probably pretty boring.

Cane: Okay, well, uh, if i can give you some advice that i wish I got, like, a year ago.

J.T.: Sure. I'm all ears.

Cane: You can pretend your problems are gonna go away, no matter how small they are, okay? You got to face them head on and fix them before they pop up.

J.T.: I'll do that.

Cane: Okay? So why don't you start now? Take the rest of the day off.

J.T.: Yeah?

Cane: Seriously. Go and fix things with victoria.

J.T.: [ Chuckles ]

Victoria: This fallout between mariah and tessa -- you have no idea what it was about?

Noah: Only that it built up to mariah threatening to sue tessa and devon for plagiarism. It's just been driving me crazy trying to figure out how this whole thing started in the first place, and neither my sister nor my girlfriend will tell me.

Victoria: Why are you pushing this?

Noah: Look, tessa is music. When she's not playing it, she's listening to it or watching it or creating it. And then she hit a wall with her writing, and...

Victoria: She was miserable.

Noah: She was hard to live with. And then she broke through and she wrote that song, and it was like the sun coming out again.

Victoria: But she couldn't release it.

Noah: Yeah, because of some stupid blow-up she had with my sister months ago. It's a waste, and I need to fix this.

Victoria: You know, I've had issues with some of your father's girlfriends in the past, but your dad and I had a very special bond. Do you have that with mariah?

Noah: Yeah, I think so. I mean, it's different because we didn't grow up together, but we never had a problem being honest with each other.

Victoria: Well, good. Then just talk to your sister. If anyone can get her to ease up, it'll be you.

Noah: [ Sighs ]

Victoria: I mean, the situation is not gonna get worse.

Noah: Mm-hmm. All right. Thanks for the advice.

Victoria: Yeah. Thanks for the coffee.

Noah: Oh, hey, how is it with J.T. Moving back in? Does it feel like before, like you never got divorced?

Victoria: Uh, yeah, sometimes, but then I have to remind myself that we were together a long time ago, and we've both changed.

Noah: For the better?

Victoria: I hope so. But we need to figure out who we are now instead of remembering who we were back then.

Jack: Okay, okay. I'll stop pestering you, but michael, as soon as you know.

Ashley: Tony. Still no word?

Jack: I already have coffee.

Gloria: It's tea, because I'm cutting you off for the duration.

Jack: You are aware that you work for me, right?

Gloria: You keep yelling at me, you're gonna be missing a lot more than coffee, buster!

[ Door slams ]

Ashley: Daddy, I miss you so much.

[ Sighs ] Traci's right, you would hate what jack and I are doing.

Jack: Oh, dad, I wish you were here. The world's a very different place now. I had no choice but to do what i I did.

Feel the power of

theraflu expressmax.

Tony: Hey, your assistant said it was okay to come in.

[ Sam crying ]

Lily: [ Sighs ] Sam, you're not hungry, you have a fresh diaper, what is wrong?

[ Doorbell rings ]

Hilary: I have a fabulous business opportunity for cane and chancellor.

Lily: Okay, hilary, this is not a good time right now.

Hilary: So I hear.

Lily: [ Sighs ]

Hilary: May I?

Lily: He's just very, very fussy.

Hilary: I don't mind.

[ Crying continues ]

Hilary: Hey, sammy. Yeah. How are you doing? Aww. How you doing? Aww. Here we go. You're okay. Aww. You're okay, sweetie.

[ Crying subsides ] Yeah, you are. Look at you.

Michael: The arbitrator ruled against ashley.

Jack: It's over. It's really over.

Tony: I can't apologize enough. I thought for sure she would rule in your favor. And, um, you know, there's no appeals in these binding arbitration cases.

Ashley: You made that clear. Thank you for putting up a good fight.

Jack: I know you didn't like representing one abbott against another.

Michael: Just doing my job. But there's still something else that needs to be done.

Jack: Celebrating.

Michael: You should talk to ashley.

Jack: I don't think she wants to see me right now.

Michael: But you need to see her, remind her despite all this, family still comes first and that she has a brother who would lay down his life for her.

Ashley: My brother got what he wanted. I hope he's happy.

Phyllis: Let the celebrating begin!

Gloria: [ Giggles ] Too late for that, we have already started! I knew that you and my brilliant son would prevail, so I planned a little celebration in advance. The rest of the staff will be joining us soon. So, what do you say? Let's hear it for jack! Hip, hip, hooray!

Hip, hip, hooray! Hip, hip, hooray!

Tony: [ Sighs ] I'm sorry.

Noah: Hey.

Mariah: Hey. What are you doing here?

Noah: Can't a brother come visit his sister?

Mariah: [ Scoffs ] If this is about tessa's song...

Noah: It's about, um, you and me and tessa. And secrets.

Mariah: What about us?

Noah: Well, the first big secret that you two kept from me was about tessa's sister being in trouble. Neither of you bothered to clue me in on that.

Mariah: It was complicated.

Noah: Well, it hurt. I mean, I understand why tessa didn't trust me. She barely knew me then. But you...

Mariah: I gave her my word that I wouldn't say anything.

Noah: Well, I was jealous of how close you two were. And here I am, jealous again. I keep on asking tessa why you two fell out.

Mariah: She finally told you?

Noah: No. So I'm hoping that you will.

Mariah: I can'T.

Noah: Why not? How could some words that you just wrote down in a journal measure up to your entire friendship?

Mariah: They aren't just some words.

Noah: You're right. For her, they could be a hit song that could start her career.

Mariah: Well, noah, I'm not gonna feel guilty about that.

Noah: Whatever writing it is you think that she stole from you... is it really that big of a deal?

Mariah: Yes.

Noah: [ Sighs ] All right. Look, I know I'm asking for a lot here, but if you won't back down for tessa's sake, will you do it for mine? Hi, I'm mike ditka.

Lily: Well, I guess I owe you a thank-you.

Hilary: I guess you could try that again with a little more conviction.

Lily: No, I -- I appreciate it, I do. It's just... never mind.

Hilary: It's okay. You can say it. I already know what you're thinking, and I'm not judging.

Lily: Yeah, but are you recording?

Hilary: Why didn't I think about that? Gosh! No. I'm not. He probably feels it, you know. How wound up you are. So, since you can't let it out with the baby or cane or the twins...

Lily: It's not for lack of time. That's not what it is. That's not what's holding me back with sam, you know? You look at him, and... you see this innocent baby.

Hilary: And when you look at him...

Lily: I just see juliet. I see a physical reminder of cane's affair, and I don't want feel that way. But I don't know when I'll get past it. Or if I ever will.

Noah: Tessa admitted to reading your journal?

Mariah: Yeah. And she says there's no connection between the words i wrote and her song, but there is.

Noah: You sure?

Mariah: Yeah. It's word-for-word. That's not a coincidence.

Noah: Can I see it?

Mariah: You don't believe me.

Noah: I believe you. I believe that the two of you have this connection, you know, maybe because of the way that you grew up. You both had to look out for yourself and fight to survive. So the two of you have this, like, shorthand, so maybe --

Mariah: Okay, so we're so alike that we think the same words? You're wrong.

Noah: All right, then just let me see it.

Mariah: You know, a journal is supposed to be private. I didn't want the world to know my innermost thoughts. So tessa had no right to put it in a song.

Noah: What are you hiding? Look, you blew this whole thing up. Now you don't know how to get out of it.

Mariah: [ Scoffs ]

Noah: You're just too proud to admit that you were wrong. So just --

Mariah: Those are my words. My feelings, noah!

Noah: Okay, and if they're exactly the same as in tessa's song, I've already heard them, and I love them. So what harm is there in letting me see them?

Mariah: [ Sighs ] I can'T.

Noah: You know, you keep on saying that, but the truth is that you have a choice. Tessa doesn'T. Devon's already pulled the release even though he's sure that that song will kick-start her career. So if you're standing in the way of this because of some petty argument.

Mariah: It's not petty. Is is not petty!

Noah: Then prove it!

Mariah: [ Sighs ] What if I won't?

Noah: [ Scoffs ] Then I guess that you and I aren't as close as I thought that we were.

Mariah: [ Sighs ]

Noah: And that you don't trust me as much as I trusted you.

Mariah: Don't make me do this. Please don't make me do this.

Noah: It's just a book and some paper. All right? I'm your brother. I thought that we were closer than that.

Mariah: [ Sighs ]

Noah: Are we?

Mariah: [ Sighs ] Read it. All of it.

Jack: Thank you for being here, and I promise to continue to do my best for jabot and everyone that works here.

Ashley: Hope I'm not too late for the party.

Jack: No, we -- we barely started. Please join us.

Ashley: I came to congratulate you.

Jack: I'm just glad it's over.

Michael: I still consider you a friend. I didn't like being on the opposite side.

Ashley: Mm, neither did I.

Gloria: Well, the rest of the staff is joining us for cake in the conference room. Why don't we move this party there?

Michael: Yes.

Ashley: Honestly, you didn't have to send them away.

Jack: I wanted to have a talk with my sister. Alone.

Hilary: You need to stop being so hard on yourself.

Lily: Yeah, but he's just a baby.

Hilary: Just think about the wrath that would come raining down if my husband expected me to take care of his mistress' child.

Lily: [ Sighs ] It would not be pretty.

Hilary: Okay, don't quote me on this because I will deny it, but, woman to woman, I admire you for what you're doing. For inviting sam into your home, for trusting that you will love him, and, lily, you out of all people, I know you will love him. Even if it takes a while, okay?

Lily: Thank you. Uh, one more thing. Don't mention any of my doubts to cane, please.

Hilary: What doubts?

[ Sam crying ]

Lily: Hey. Shh, shh, shh, shh. Oh, come here. Shh, shh, shh, shh. Here. Do you want this? Do you want this?

[ Gasps ] No?

[ Chuckles ]

Mariah: "Saw myself through your eyes, can't believe I had these thoughts. Not sure if I got it right, I feel so out of place."

Noah: It's tessa's song almost word for word. She really did.

Mariah: Steal it? Yeah, I told you. Noah.

Noah: You still keeping secrets from me?

Mariah: That's how I felt that night in san francisco, after I kissed tessa.

Mariah: [ Sighs ]

Noah: You kissed her? That song that tessa sang, that was about...my sister and my girlfriend?

Mariah: Noah, please, let me explain. Please. [ Gasps ]

[ Doorbell rings ]

Victoria: Hey. Why didn't you use your key?

J.T.: Because I wanted to make things right at the scene of the crime. Observe. This is what I should have done this morning. Instead, I slammed the door on the way out of here because you were busy.

Victoria: Oh, did you? I didn't notice.

J.T.: Yeah, you did. Because that's what I intended.

Victoria: I was busy. I should have taken a minute.

J.T.: No, it's not your fault, it's mine.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] I helped.

J.T.: No, next time, you can take the blame, but for now, i want to apologize, and I want to tell --

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Victoria: You were saying?

J.T.: I want you to know how much you mean to me.

[ Romantic music plays ]

Victoria: That's our song.

J.T.: I -- I drove all over town looking for one of those old-school boomboxes that i could, you know, hold over my head like they did in the movie, but those things are expensive.

[ Laughs ] So this is gonna have to do. Do you remember when we danced to this song?

Victoria: You know, we should talk about this morning, and our expectations about where we are now, and who we are...

J.T.: And dance?

Victoria: It's very important.

J.T.: That we dance.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Here? Now?

J.T.: I would dance with you anywhere.

Jack: Sorry about that.

Ashley: Not at all. I don't want to keep you from your party. You're the guest of honor.

Jack: You're being very gracious.

Ashley: Mm. I was raised well.

Jack: We both were. I want you to know you will always have a significant role here.

Ashley: That's very generous of you.

Jack: No, no, no. It's selfish. I value you. I always have. And I'm sorry it all came down like this. I want you to know I'm going to do everything I can to repair our relationship.

Ashley: You don't have to apologize. I think we've sad everything there is to be said. Except for one thing. I'm resigning from jabot. You and I are done.
