Episode #11333 ~ Nikki makes an unexpected connection; Chelsea is backed into a corner; an alias is exposed.

Provided By Suzanne

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

Nikki: Victor and I have a new arrangement. We no longer subscribe to the traditional dictates of marriage. And that has become very beneficial for us.

Phyllis: Your business has been the target of a scam.

Phyllis: I have brought onboard a top online fraud investigator.

Chelsea: Is it somebody i know?

Phyllis: Actually, you do. J.T. Hellstrom.

Tessa: We have to find a way to move forward, figure out a way to do this together.

Mariah: You got a divorce from a billionaire, and all you asked for was a tv show. Now you're selling it back to him?

Hilary: I sign those contracts, we become part of a media powerhouse.

Devon: When there's something you want, there's not a damn thing in the world that can stop you.

Devon: I need to reschedule my phone interview with that german webzine on monday.

Tessa: For which day?

Devon: Let's, uh, push it back, the week of the 12th. Any morning is fine.

Tessa: Okay, uh, anything else?

Devon: Yes, actually. I want you to start monitoring the comment threads online and make a daily summary of what people are saying about lp streaming, about the songs and the artists and stuff like that. Because I figure, you being a musician yourself, you could provide a unique perspective on what fans are feeling and what's resonating with them, you know? Is that okay?

Tessa: Yeah. Yeah, no, whatever you need me to do.

Devon: Cool.

Hilary: Here I am, people! Ready to move in!

Devon: What are you talking about?

Hilary: Well, now that I'm part of hamilton-winters, I am reporting for duty. I'm ready to move into my new office, so if you just point me in the right direction, I will go and unpack my things.

Devon: Hang on. What things?

Mariah: Hi! Hey, where should I, um, put this stuff?

Nikki: Hey, reed!

Reed: Hi.

Nikki: You must have just gotten home. How was school today?

Reed: Um, it was fine. Am I in trouble, or something?

Nikki: Oh, I don't know, are you?

Reed: No, um, I just didn't expect you to drop by.

Nikki: Well, I just thought I'd come by and see how you're doing while your mom's away on her business trip.

Reed: I'm fine, I guess.

Nikki: Well, I know from our talks that your father's coming back to town was kind of rough, it brought up a long strong feelings for you. Then to find out that they got re-involved so quickly and moved in together... it must be quite an adjustment.

Reed: Are you here to check in on me or my dad?

Phyllis: You work fast. That's all I got to say.

J.T.: Well, the crooks are nimble, but they're also greedy. They usually make mistakes.

Phyllis: Let's grab a booth. So, you said you did some digging...

J.T.: Yeah, I looked into the company siphoning off chelsea 2.0. It took some doing, but I was able to track down the registered owner.

Phyllis: Fabulous. Anyone we know?

J.T.: Alexandra west.

Phyllis: Haven't heard of her.

J.T.: Yeah, I figured.

Phyllis: Any other information? Country of origin?

J.T.: No, it was the only thing listed, the name. But at least it gives us a place to start.

Phyllis: Okay, so, what now? Do we get the police involved? Do they track this person down and arrest her?

J.T.: No. It's not that simple.

Chelsea: [ Sighs ]

[ Sniffles ]

[ Sighs ]

Nick: How is the electrical coming along? Did we get the new service put in?

On wednesday. Yeah, everything went smoothly with the power company except for the bag I tripped on that you left on the site.

Nick: Yeah, uh, sorry about that. And the inspection?

City signed off on everything.

Nick: Awesome.

However, my guys did come across an issue when rewiring the individual units. Here's an estimate for the additional work. It's gonna take about an extra three weeks to complete.

Nick: This is 20% more than the original bid.

It's necessary to bring the apartments up to code.

Nick: No, arturo, this is gonna be a huge problem.

J.T.: Well, there's a pretty good chance "alexandra west" is an alias.

Phyllis: I wonder who that is.

J.T.: That's just the thing. I mean, where do we start looking?

Phyllis: No, I mean the guy at nick's table. I've never seem him before.

J.T.: No idea.

Phyllis: Well... sorry, I'm just being nosy. So, our pirate is using an alias. That makes sense.

J.T.: Yeah, but even if they're not, there must be thousands of women with that name. Finding the one who's ripping off fenmore's would rack up a stack of billable hours, and only you and lauren can decide if it's actually worth it.

Phyllis: Well, seeing a thief behind bars, that is always satisfying.

J.T.: Let's not get ahead of ourselves because, I mean, even if I catch this person, it doesn't mean that they're gonna face trial or stick around long enough to sue. We already shut down their phony site. They know we're onto them. They'll probably just move on to the next target.

Phyllis: Well, and they could probably keep stealing from us.

J.T.: Well, we can monitor new fake websites, but in the meantime, they're still leeching off your profit.

Phyllis: It's not only the cost to the company that burns me about this. It's the fact that someone got into the supply chain and that they are actually selling chelsea's designs, you know? I mean, the idea of them getting away with this, it just -- it infuriates me.

J.T.: Yeah, I know. I agree with you.

Phyllis: Okay, so what do we do?

J.T.: I'll invoice you for the time I've put into it, and, uh, I'll keep investigating on my own.

Phyllis: You're gonna work for free?

J.T.: Yeah, I mean, if I find something important, you can turn the meter back on or whatever you want to do.

Phyllis: And if you don't?

J.T.: Well, then just consider it my good deed for the week. Look, I -- I can do the work cane gives me in my sleep, all right? I spend half the day trying to look busy. I like a challenge. I need a challenge.

Phyllis: I'd say so. You move back to town, and five minutes later, you're living with your ex-wife, two small kids, and your teenage son.

J.T.: Like you said, I work fast.

Phyllis: Guess so. You know, I saw your smile last night when victoria called. It was pretty big. How'd that go?

J.T.: It was brief, but, uh, it was good. Look, she's got a hectic schedule, I understand that.

Phyllis: Oh, you're so enlightened.

J.T.: Didn't get there on my own. I, uh, decided to take your advice, trust that everything's just gonna work out fine.

Phyllis: Well, you just remember that advice was free, so no refunds if it doesn't work out.

J.T.: [ Chuckles ] I can live with that. No, I really appreciated talking to you. I mean, you made me realize i may be expecting too much, putting too much pressure on this, but... I guess I just have this idea of how perfect it can be with someone.

Phyllis: That's a trap, comparing what you have now to something you had in the past. Usually, people remember things as being better than they were. I should go, but, um, before i do, can you stand a skosh more advice? It's about reed.

J.T.: Oh, should I break out my wallet?

Phyllis: The two of you were on different continents for over a year and not getting along very well before that. You know, maybe take advantage of this time while victoria's away and do some guy things together, you know? Shoot hoops, play video games. Whatever it is you both like.

J.T.: Rediscover one another, yeah.

Phyllis: Yeah, maybe it will help with his acting out stuff, and maybe with you trying to pull your hair out stuff.

[ Chuckles ]

J.T.: I like the way you think.

Phyllis: Well, I like the way you listen. Thank you, and please keep me updated on the fraud stuff, okay?

J.T.: Yeah, I will.

Phyllis: Thank you so much.

J.T.: See you later.

Phyllis: Bye.

J.T.: [ Exhales sharply ]

Reed: It's been kind of tense.

Nikki: And how much of that is you?

Reed: It's mainly coming from him. He's all over me.

Nikki: About what?

Reed: Everything.

Nikki: Well, would you rather he not care what you do and not have any expectations for you to live up to?

Reed: There has to be some sort of happy medium.

Nikki: Well, that sounds reasonable. Here's a thought -- why don't you start acting like an adult?

Reed: [ Sighs ]

Nikki: I know, but, I mean, it's so easy. You just reach out to your dad and make an effort to have things improve instead of storming up to your room.

Reed: I guess I could do that.

Nikki: Sure, you could. There's this old saying...

Reed: Honey and vinegar?

Nikki: Well, that's good, too. "Killing him with kindness." Have you heard that one?

Reed: No.

Nikki: That's where you are so charming and agreeable that the other person can't help but drop their guard and be nice right back to you. And then after a while, those negative expectations just melt away like magic.

Reed: Huh. Seems like some cool judo move.

Nikki: That's the perfect analogy. So, have you been practicing your guitar?

Reed: [ Sighs ] Some. I mean, I was really into it when I had the open mic night at the underground to look forward to, but after everything that happened...

Nikki: You know, whenever things are bothering me, I find that I play the piano more. Somehow, it soothes me. What would you think about getting in touch with tessa again, taking a few more lessons? I'd be happy to pay for them.

Reed: Grandma, thanks, but, I mean, she's got a record deal. When is she gonna find the time?

Nikki: Well, that didn't work out.

Reed: What? Since when?

Nikki: You can ask her yourself when you see her. I know she could use the money. And from what I understand, she's going through a few challenges herself.

Devon: I didn't say that you could have an office here. I don't know where you'd get an idea like that.

Hilary: Uh, when I took that tv show, the one with my name on it, and I single-handedly turned it around, created something of such obvious value that you decided to buy it back from me. Practically begged me.

Devon: Nobody begged you for anything. We made a deal that was beneficial to both of us. And when I bought gc buzz, i agreed to keep you and mariah and your production staff on payroll, but nowhere in the contract does it stipulate that you get an executive position here.

Hilary: You want "the hilary hour?" Then you get hilary, the media force. That's the deal, devon. Take it or leave it.

Nick: No. That's gonna put us way over budget.

Yeah, well, it turns out a lot of the wiring was shot. Whenever you have rodents in the walls...

Nick: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I got it.

Look, it's gonna take more time and materials than expected. When we started, I gave you an estimate, not a firm bid. Sometimes you don't know what you're gonna encounter until you get things opened up.

Nick: Yeah, but you do understand what I'm trying to do here, right? I'm trying to create affordable housing. This is not some personal job for the newmans.

Are you suggesting that i would jack up the prices because of that?

Nick: I'm not accusing you of anything. I just want you to work with me here, all right? This is gonna be a great thing for the community.

You want this city to give a certificate of occupancy, you have to pass all inspections at every level of the job, which means building up to current code. I'm just letting you know what that's gonna cost. Unless you expect me to cut corners...

Nick: No, I expect you to do the work for what you quoted.

If you look at the contract we have signed, there's a clause about unforeseen circumstances.

Nick: Yeah, I know. I can read.

With all due respect, nick, i think you're just a little out of touch with the real world, buddy.

Nick: You don't know me.

I've read the stories. You gave away your trust fund, hundreds of millions of dollars. You think you could just walk in here, strap on a shiny new tool belt, and pretend to be a regular working stiff?

Nick: Ah, now that's cool. See, I'm trying to have a reasonable conversation with you.

And so am I, all right? But my guys, I got to pay them.

Nikki: Hey, hey, hey! Gentlemen! What seems to be the problem?

The building that you're trying to rehab, it's got messed up internal wiring. It's gonna cost more than the original estimate.

Nick: It's 20% more.

To fix. Which your son is having a hard time accepting.

Nick: You know what, I think I might get some additional bids.

Nikki: Wait a minute. Why don't we all discuss this over a bite? We'll all be much more relaxed.

Sure, if you're picking up the bill.

Nick: [ Scoffs ]

Nikki: I'll take it from here.

Nick: So I'm not invited?

Nikki: Not this time.

Nick: Whatever.

Devon: You know, this is a horrible way to start a partnership by demanding to reopen the deal and making impossible demands.

Hilary: You said, and i quote, "I want to make you part of the hamilton-winters family. I want to help you achieve your dreams, take your career to the next level." Did you or did you not speak the words to me?

Devon: Mm-hmm.

Hilary: Mm-hmm, and when you did, you convinced me to take a much lower bid because... here's another quote. "You know me, and I know you." Meaning that I can trust you to keep your word, and you know my dreams, devon. You know that I want to be part of something bigger, a growing media and entertainment empire. I want a corner office with a window overlooking genoa city and enough space for me to percolate my fabulous ideas.

Devon: And you can have all of that at gc buzz.

Hilary: Have you not heard a word that I said?

Devon: Yes, I've heard you, but you need to hear me now, okay? I have a business partner who you might be familiar with. His name is neil. And we don't just go around handing out executive positions and corner offices to people. That's not how we run things around here.

Hilary: Okay. Okay, I will just park my stuff right here until you can figure out a satisfactory solution.

Tessa: Uh, excuse me, that's my work area.

Hilary: Oh, no, not anymore, sweetie.

J.T.: [ Chuckles ]

Reed: Still have that old guitar?

J.T.: Yeah. Haven't played it in a while, but, um, I'd never give this thing up. Too many memories.

Reed: What made you bust it out now?

J.T.: [ Exhales sharply ] I was, uh, meeting with a friend, and I saw something that reminded me of the days when i was serious about my music, man. I was gonna be the next big thing.

Reed: Yeah, right.

J.T.: I'm serious.

[ Guitar plays ]

Reed: Wow. Not bad.

J.T.: Not bad? I'm good, man! Or at least I was. Back in the day. I even had a record deal. I was legit.

Reed: Why did you never tell me that?

J.T.: Oh, I don't know, i didn't want to live in the past, you know, thinking about what might have been.

Reed: What happened?

J.T.: I wrote some songs, got some attention, lost my deal by being A... it's a long story.

Reed: Why didn't you just sign with another label or put your music out on your own?

J.T.: It was a different time, you know? Not like now. Anybody can post their videos and songs to the internet for the entire world to see now. It was a different time. But you're right, I might have given up too easy. And I don't want to see that happen to you.

Reed: Yeah, grandma just about told me the same thing.

J.T.: Well, we're not ganging up on you, if that's what you mean, but, uh, you know, you got talent. We want to see you make the most of it.

Reed: You know, I took a few lessons with this amazing local musician, tessa porter. And I was really learning a lot. Then she scored this streaming deal with lp, got busy. But grandma just told me that tessa's deal got dropped and that I should pick up lessons with her again.

J.T.: That's a great idea, man. I think you should do it.

Reed: I just think it's kind of weird, you know? Like, "hey, I heard you got dumped. I figured you'd have some time to burn."

J.T.: Uh, yeah, maybe, uh, try a little compassion, some tact. Look, it sounds like this girl's been through a lot, you know, and the music business can be rough. Believe me, I know what's it's like to get your dreams ripped out from underneath you.

Chelsea: Less than a day! I thought it was gonna take weeks!

Phyllis: It's unbelievable. J.T. Is so damn good at this investigating stuff.

Chelsea: So, what did he say? Who's been selling my designs on this phony website?

Phyllis: It's gonna sound like a long shot, but do you know of anybody by the name of alexandra west?

Chelsea: I don't think so. Why?

Phyllis: They are the registered owner of the bogus site. It's probably not the real name, but whoever is behind this and is doing this, they've got direct access to chelsea 2.0 merchandise. Now, maybe it's someone in your supply chain.

Chelsea: Oh, okay. I'll go through my contacts, the directories of all of the businesses I work with, see if someone got a little greedy.

Phyllis: And careless.

Chelsea: [ Sighs ]

[ Guitar plays ]

J.T.: What do you think?

Reed: Something like this?

J.T.: Yeah. Hey, that's not bad, man. You're further along than i thought.

Reed: Do you have any full-blown songs?

J.T.: Yeah, I got a couple.

Reed: Well, play one!

J.T.: Nah, I'm too rusty.

Reed: What was a favorite song of yours that you wrote?

J.T.: It was for a very special girl on valentine's day. I played it in front of a room full of people.

Reed: How did I not know this about you? It's like you're a whole other person with a whole other life.

J.T.: Hey, you remember that because, someday, your kids are gonna tell you the exact same thing.

Reed: All right, well, I want to learn that song you were playing. Play it again.

J.T.: Yeah, all right. I'll teach you the chords. It starts with a D. Ready? Come on, try it. Yeah. Yeah!

Phyllis: Hey, did you check that fabric house in soho?

Chelsea: Nothing. What about the shipping company employees?

Phyllis: Same.

Chelsea: Well, I mean, everyone connected to shipping, sewing, marketing, transporting, selling chelsea 2.0 designs -- anyone even related, there's no alexandra west. There's nobody even with those initials. I hate to say we've hit a dead end, but...

Phyllis: Then don'T. Look, I still have J.T. On this. This is like a cyber needle in a haystack, but he has offered to keep digging on his own time.

Chelsea: Oh, well, that's noble.

Phyllis: When he finds this person, I'll be sure I give him a fat check, I'll tell you that.

Chelsea: Oh, really, I can't thank you enough for pursuing this.

Phyllis: No problem. It just makes me mad as hell that someone's taking advantage of you like this. You deserve every penny coming your way.

Chelsea: Thanks. Well, you need to track down this woman, or whoever is using her name. When you do, I plan to instill the fear of god into them.

Phyllis: Well, you and me both, believe me. Thank you.

Chelsea: Thank you.

Phyllis: Okay. Talk to you soon.

Chelsea: Okay, have a good day.

Phyllis: Bye.

Chelsea: [ Sighs ]

Hilary: Um, okay, something's come up. I have to go.

Devon: Are you serious?

Hilary: Yeah, I'm sorry. It's important.

Devon: You're just gonna walk out the door after you come in here making all this drama about needing a bigger presence here?

Hilary: That wasn't drama, devon. That was a woman who knows her value and isn't afraid to demand that that value be recognized and compensated and who will not be condescended to or have her demands dismissed out of hand.

Devon: Okay, well, I'm gonna have mariah take your things and bring them back to gc buzz.

Hilary: No, no! You will not touch that stuff! We are not done!

Devon: I've created a monster.

Mariah: Don't let her hear you take credit for that.

Devon: [ Sighs ] Okay, um... I'm late for a meeting, so I'll be back soon.

Tessa: [ Chuckles ]

Mariah: [ Chuckles ] I know hilary is a royal pain, but i have to give her credit. The woman knows what she wants.

Tessa: And apparently barrels through anyone to get to it.

Mariah: Welcome to my work life.

[ Laughs ] Our work life, I guess.

Nikki: I'm so glad that you said yes to sitting down with me. I have to say, when we hired your company to do our electrical work, the list of other people you've worked for is very impressive.

[ Chuckles ] Now you're buttering me up. This an intimidation tactic?

Nikki: No, that was a real compliment. And you don't strike me as the type who's easily intimidated.

If you think that you can sweet-talk me into biting a chunk out of my labor and materials...

Nikki: Actually, I would rather bite a big chunk out of a juicy steak, wouldn't you? They have very good seafood dishes here, too.

All kidding aside, mrs. Newman...

Nikki: Please. Call me nikki.

Nikki. To make these apartments safe and livable, it's gonna take a lot of man hours. I really feel like I offered your son a fair price. You're wasting your time bringing me here.

Nikki: Oh, I don't waste my time. Or my money. That's why I can turn that derelict building into safe, affordable housing. But I can't do that if contractors start adding zeroes when they see the name "newman."

Nick said the same thing. It was insulting then, and it's insulting now.

Nikki: Oh, no, I assure you, neither one of us intended to insult you.

If you want to do charity work, I applaud that, I really do, but this is my business. I didn't agree to do this pro bono.

Nikki: A good word from me, and you can add some very wealthy influential people to your client list.

Mm, and if I spread the word that the newmans won't pay a fair price, you'll have a tough time getting work done in this town.

Nikki: Oh. Well, I am not easily intimidated, either, arturo. May I call you arturo?

You can call me whatever you want. The price is the price, it's non-negotiable.

Nikki: Oh, I think everything is negotiable. So, we could just leave it here the way it is, lawyer up, spread nasty gossip about each other, or we could handle it like two competent people. And you could take 5% above your original quote.


Nikki: 10%. My final offer.

You are a tough one, nikki newman.

Nikki: Yes. I guess I am.

Tessa: All right, well, when will mr. Hamilton's shirts be ready? Okay, great. I'll pick them up then. Okay.

Mariah: It must be weird, to go from recording in a studio to...

Tessa: You know, I'm just grateful to have a job. And an opportunity to earn back the trust I lost.

Mariah: I was shocked when i heard devon was buying back gc buzz from hilary.

Tessa: Yeah, you and me both.

Mariah: I tried to talk him out of it, but it's his money.

Tessa: Devon and hilary, they just have this thing between them. It's like a chemical spark.

Mariah: Yeah, it's kind of like nuclear waste. But, hey, you can't say that the man didn't know what he was getting himself into.

Tessa: I hope this won't be weird -- I mean, both of us working for devon's company.

Mariah: Yeah, it's gonna be a little weird. But I need the job, too, and this is part of it. And I thought we kind of talked about all that yesterday.

Tessa: Yeah.

Mariah: I found the usb drive with the recording of your song on it.

Tessa: Our song. You know, I really hope one day that you --

Devon: Hey. You're still here?

Mariah: Oh, you mean, we can actually talk without any bloodshed?

Tessa: You know, it must have been all that team building at the employee gathering where we were the only two employees invited.

Mariah: Yeah, it was very subtle.

Tessa: Yeah.

Devon: Hey, you do whatever it take to manage your people and get the best out of them.

Hilary: So? Where do we we stand? Have you taken steps to make this work for me? Make good on the promises that you made me?

Devon: [ Sighs ] Hilary, i didn't make you any promises, all right? You've taken what I said out of context.

Hilary: So, so much for your commitment to me and my show. You know, if you can't give me a meaningful place in this company, there are plenty of other people who will.

Devon: Hil--

Hilary: Yeah.

Devon: Can you cancel my next meeting, please? Hilary!

Reed: Back to reality, huh? Pounding away on that keyboard, doing whatever it is you do all day?

J.T.: Yeah, well, I'm really into this new gig I got. It's a side hustle. It's not rockstar cool, but it's cool.

Reed: What, are you writing code?

J.T.: No. Tracking cyber criminals.

I hope I haven't kept you waiting too long. Nice to see you again, ms. West.

Chelsea: You, as well.

Nikki: So, do you accept?

I accept.

Nikki: Shall we shake on it?

I assume we're done here?

Nikki: Well, don't rush off, unless you're needed elsewhere.

Not immediately.

Nikki: Good. More wine?

I mean, we can't let it go to waste.

Nikki: So you were saying that you've done just about all of the trades?

Everything except painting. Yeah, I never really had the patience.

Nikki: And that's how you know what your people are worth?

No, no, actually, I know what my people are worth because who they are, you know, their character and how hard they work. I hope that makes sense to someone in your position.

Nikki: Well, it's a funny thing about being wealthy -- having your picture in the paper all the time... everybody just assumes that you were born that way. And they can't imagine that you spent a good part of your life in a different environment. Different part of town. Doing jobs that the "ladies who lunch" would rather die than do.

That sounds like a story right there.

Nikki: I have enjoyed this so much, arturo.

Same here, nikki.

Nikki: Wait here. I'll be back in a minute.

Mariah: I am starting to think that this is gonna take a while.

Tessa: What was your first clue?

Mariah: [ Scoffs ] Do you mind if I leave hilary's stuff here while they figure this out?

Tessa: Yeah, it's fine by me. I need to run to the post office for him anyway, so...

Mariah: All right, well, go ahead. I'm gonna find some corner to put this stuff away.

Tessa: Okay. Perfect.

[ Sighs ] All right, bye.

Mariah: Bye.

I assume you want to do the usual, withdraw all the funds in cash?

Chelsea: Yes. And then I'd like to close my account.

J.T.: See, there's different types of fraud.

Reed: What is this one about?

J.T.: Somebody set up a trick website to steal sales and merchandise from a company. Now, that company found out about it and put a stop to it. But the thief can keep doing it again and again.

Reed: So they hired you to investigate?

J.T.: Exactly.

Reed: Where would you even start?

J.T.: Every time you post online or do a transaction, you leave a little bit of, you know, like a bread crumb trail. It's just a matter of knowing exactly what to follow.

Reed: What is it?

J.T.: There's a bank account in genoa city registered to an alexandra west. That's who I've been tracking.

J.T.: But doesn't that make you a hacker, too?

J.T.: Yeah, except I'm one of the good guys. Now, I just got to get through this bank's firewall to access this account. Almost there.

Here you are, ms. West. All in cash. I'll count it out for you.

Chelsea: First, did you close the account? I need that done right away.

Oh, yes. Just one more thing.

Reed: You find it yet?

J.T.: Yes! I'm in. All right. That -- what? Damn it!

Reed: What?

And that's all done, ms. West. Your account is now closed.

J.T.: Damn.

Reed: What happened? Whoa, dad! Where are you going? Tonight's all about making comfort food easy.

Devon: Hey! Hilary! Will you stop? Please!

Hilary: Can you just leave me alone?!

[ Sighs ]

Devon: What is going on with you?

Hilary: [ Sighs ]

Devon: You expect people to take you seriously, and then you act the way you do. I'm -- I can't play this game with you, whatever this is.

Hilary: That's not what I'm doing, okay? I -- I don't want to have this conversation.

Devon: Are you having second thoughts? Do you want out of the deal? Is that what's going on?

Hilary: No. No! That's not what it is!

Devon: Can you talk to me, then? Please?

Hilary: Today was huge for me, okay? I had my first fertility treatment.

Devon: Oh.

Hilary: And, god, this process is just -- it's so bizarre and technical. I have to wait to see when I'm ovulating, and then I rush to my doctor's office, and I lie on this table that is -- I wait for them to implant some stranger's sperm into me, and... I don't know, you know, maybe I'll get used to it, but... this is just not how I imagined that it would be when I... when I first thought about having a baby.

Tessa: [ Gasps ] Oh, crap! You scared me.

Mariah: Sorry.

Tessa: I thought you were leaving.

Mariah: I put hilary's stuff over there, if that's okay.

Tessa: Yeah, that's fine. Okay. What?

Mariah: I was just wondering where you've been living since you and noah broke up.

Tessa: Oh, I -- I rented a room not that far from here.

[ Telephone rings ]

Tessa: Hamilton-winters, this is tessa. Oh, I'm afraid mr. Hamilton is out of the office right now, but I'd be happy to take a message. Okay.

Nikki: Okay, the bill has been taken care of.

Well, thanks again for the meal, and the company.

Nikki: My pleasure.

Nikki: Actually, I wasn't looking forward to that long ride home, so I decided to spend the night. I just got a room. Care to join me?

J.T.: Sure. Yeah. And I'm not asking you to break any laws.

J.T.: Okay, well, um, how about you let me take a look at the security footage. I think she was here yesterday or today. Maybe I can catch a glimpse of her.

J.T.: This involves a criminal investigation.

J.T.: Well, I'm gonna do that because, trust me, this is not a woman you want to protect.
