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

Arturo: So you do want me around?

Abby: Well, we don't have to label it.

Arturo: No labels. But honesty -- we need that.

Abby: I honestly want to kiss you.

Billy: I bought a yacht.

Phyllis: You had me jaboat.

Billy: No, no, no, no, no.

Phyllis: Oh! We have gone up and down three times already!

Billy: I love this elevator. Made some of our favorite memories in here.

Hilary: I'm loving it. It already feels like a brand-new show. Oh! And we have a new title -- "gc buzz -- summer in the city."

Cane: Dude.

Charlie: Thank you.

Cane: Yeah.

Hilary: Welcome to this very special 4th-of-july episode of "gc buzz." Coming to you live from the

[Singsong voice] Glamorous roof deck of the genoa city athletic club. Today we are celebrating the 242nd birthday of this great country. A nation that is built on the belief that anything is possible, and dreams really do come true. I am living proof of that. But today, we will be sharing stories that we've aired over this past year that exemplify this american spirit. And, to top it all off, we will have a very, very special guest. My co-host, mariah copeland, has the day off, so she will be missing all of the fun. But don't you worry -- sparks are still gonna fly. I guarantee you fireworks in the sky and in front of the camera.

Billy: Happy 4th of july!

Phyllis: Stop! Close your eyes. Don't look.

Billy: Close my eyes?

Phyllis: Yes.

Billy: Oh. Okay. Is this, uh, some kind of 4th-of-july ritual I don't know about?

Phyllis: Give me one more second, okay? Give me one more second. One more second. Open 'em! Ha, ha! Happy birthday!

Billy: Ha, ha! Wow.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ]

Billy: I don't know what to say.

Phyllis: Yeah, I wanted to bake a cake.

Billy: But you thought this was a better idea?

Phyllis: It's tougher to burn whipped cream.

Billy: This is true.

Phyllis: [ Giggles ] Oh -- eeee! I forgot my birthday candle!

Billy: I don't -- I don't need a candle.

Phyllis: Yeah, you do, for the "birthday wish."

Billy: I have everything I've ever wanted standing right in front of me.

Phyllis: Really? Me, whipped cream, that's all you want for your birthday?

Billy: Mm-hmm. I learned a long time ago that this day is not about me. People would prefer hot dogs and fireworks than birthday cake.

Phyllis: That's why I want to make this day 100% about you.

Billy: Well, you're not the only one that can pull off a surprise, 'cause I got something in store... for you.

Phyllis: [ Giggles ]

Billy: You didn't burn it.

Phyllis: Good, right?

Billy: It's really good.

Phyllis: Homemade.

Hilary: After this short break, we'll be right back to reveal our mystery guest.

Tessa: And clear.

Shauna: Man, production work is hard.

Tessa: Any work for hilary is hard. But I need the cash.

Shauna: Hilary's not that bad.

Hilary: What the hell was that? Okay, do you know how distracting it is that you were making weird hand signals when I am live on-air?

Tessa: I -- I was trying to tell you that --

Hilary: No, no. I don't care. Wait until the red light turns off.

Shauna: I got you a decaf latte.

Hilary: Thank you. It's hot. I asked for iced. Can anyone do anything right around here? God! Okay. Where's the mayor? Because she needs to be prepped. She needs to be ready to go right after this commercial break.

Tessa: And that's what I was trying to tell you. Mayor palmer's gonna be late.

Hilary: What?

Shauna: She's your only guest for today.

Hilary: Yeah, you don't think I know that?

[ Sighs ] Oh, my...

Shauna: What are you gonna do?

Hilary: [ Sighs ] What I do best. Improvise.

Mattie: Hey, do you guys want anything to drink?

Lily: Uh, iced tea, please.

Mattie: Dad?

Cane: What's that, baby?

Charlie: You want something to drink?

Cane: No. No, I'm good. Thanks.

Lily: Hey. You okay?

Cane: Yeah, I'm okay.

Lily: So, you're not worried that jack is trying to prove that he's phillip chancellor's son?

Cane: Mm... a little. All right. A lot.

Lily: So, where do things stand?

Cane: Uh... well, he's full steam ahead with the lawsuit to exhume phillip's body, and he's even asking dina to testify.

Lily: I cannot believe that he would put his mom through that.

Cane: Yeah, well, he wants to stake his claim on katherine's estate, which also includes my job as the head of chancellor.

Lily: Well, I don't think he realizes how determined my husband can be.

Cane: Yeah. Anyway, I don't want to talk about that. I just want to enjoy my day with my family.

Lily: I know. The only thing we're missing is sam.

Cane: Yeah. Rotten luck he got a cold.

Lily: Well, I'm sure bridgette's taking good care of him.

Cane: Sure.

Lily: [ Chuckles ]

Abby: Hi, guys.

Cane: Hey.

Lily: Hey! Happy 4th of july.

Abby: Happy 4th of july to you.

[ Laughs ]

Lily: Yeah. Where's the rest of your gang?

Abby: Uh, well, most of my family wasn't in the mood to celebrate.

Lily: Mm. And what about arturo? Are you guys on again? Off again? I can't really keep track, sorry.

Abby: We are definitely on, but he's working today.

Cane: Really? On a holiday?

Abby: Don't ask.

Cane: All right.

Lily: Why don't you join us?

Abby: Oh, no. I wouldn't want to intrude on your family time.

Cane: Oh, no. You're not intruding. Here, let me get a towel.

Lily: Yeah. We'd love one more. Come on.

Abby: Oh, thank you.

Cane: Come on.

Abby: Hey, guys.

Mattie: Hi.

Charlie: Here you go, mom.

Lily: Oh, thank you. Oh, abby's joining us.

Mattie: The more the merrier.

[ Chuckles ]

Hilary: Hello.

Charlie: Hey.

Lily: Hilary.

Hilary: I was wondering if you all would like to be on my show today.

"The young and the restless"

will continue.

Hilary: We are here at the top of the genoa city athletic club, celebrating america's birthday with some of gc's best and brightest. Now, with me now is lily ashby. She is the former fashion model who just opened her own modeling agency. Welcome, lily, to the show.

Lily: Thank you. Happy 4th of july, everyone.

Hilary: Now, can you share with our viewers what the 4th means to you?

Lily: Uh, yeah. I think it means having the freedom to be dependent and independent at the same time.

Hilary: Um, can you expand on that?

Lily: Yeah. I think that we live in a country where we have the freedom to choose -- you know, whether you want to be married or stay single. If you want to be a working parent or stay at home with your kids. If you want to get a college degree or choose a career where you don't need one. And that freedom allows me to feel empowered as a woman and a citizen of this country.

Hilary: And the dependent part?

Lily: Well, because even though I am a strong, independent woman, I still need my family. And they show me love and support as a mom, and someone pursuing her dreams. So, even though I love that freedom, I think it's important to still be bound to the thing that allows you to enjoy it.

Hilary: Wow. That was... really quite lovely.

Lily: Thank you. [ Chuckles ]

Hilary: Now here's a clip from someone who appreciates this great country just as much as lily.

Tessa: And we're out.

Cane: That was terrific.

Lily: [ Laughs ] Thank you.

Mattie: You killed it, mom.

Charlie: Yeah, it was pretty dope.

Lily: Thank you. And I meant every word. I'm really happy to get to spend this holiday with you guys.

Cane: You know, after a performance like that, I think you deserve a real drink.

Lily: Ooh, a margarita sounds good.

[ All chuckle ]

Charlie: Great. Now how are we gonna tell mom?

Phyllis: A ride in a hot-air balloon?

Billy: With all the fireworks today? Eh...

Phyllis: Wasn't thinking.

Billy: Mm-hmm.

Phyllis: [ Gasps ] A day at the beach?

Billy: Okay. You're getting warmer.

Phyllis: Come on! Fill in the blanks for me, please.

Billy: Okay, fine. We are going on a private cruise. I'm gonna take you out on the lake for a romantic day and night, which will include a candlelight dinner and plenty of fireworks.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ] Yeah! That's way better than a hot-air balloon.

Billy: Way better.

Phyllis: Yeah. Okay. I'll grab our suits and towels. I'll be right back.

Billy: All right.

Phyllis: Okay. All set.

Billy: [ Sighs ] I must have left the keys for the boat at the office. We'll have to stop by there.

Phyllis: That's good. We'll grab them on the way to the marina. Grab some snacks, too.

Billy: Sounds good.

Phyllis: So, what do you think? What's for dinner?

Billy: Hot dogs.

Phyllis: [ Laughs, groans ] Come on. Are you serious about that?

Billy: Okay, and we'll have to stop and grab some lobster, too.

Abby: Today's a day to break free from convention. We have the power to prove that blondes aren't dumb. We can wear pink or black, or ride horseback into a restaurant wearing nothing at all!

Hilary: Thank you, abby newman, for that very... colorful answer.

Abby: Happy birthday, america!

[ Laughs ]

Hilary: Now, um... let's take a look at our second highlight from this past year, a very moving and heroic moment.

Lily: Everyone who endures getting grilled by hilary deserves one of these.

Abby: Thank you. Heh.

Lily: You okay?

Abby: Yeah. Hey, take a selfie with me.

Lily: Oh. Picture time.

Abby: Here we go. Oh.

Lily: Cheese!

Abby: Cheese! So cute.

[ Both laugh ]

Lily: Is that for all your followers, or just one in particular?

Abby: Well, I wouldn't mind if arturo saw what he was missing.

Lily: And how serious are things between you two?

Abby: I know how I feel. I'm not sure about him. You know, we've gotten past a lot, but there's still some obstacles that we have to overcome.

Lily: Well, you know if there was ever a day to overcome them, today is it. Like you said, bare it all and break free from convention.

Abby: [ Laughs ] You know what? You're right. It's my turn to make a move. And I know just what I have to do. Bye!

Lily: Bye.

Mattie: Today's the day to honor the men who fought to make the birth of our nation a reality, including the heroes who lost their lives on the battlefield. Now, what about you? And please don't say that the 4th of july is about the day that we beat the aliens.

Charlie: [ Chuckles ] Tight movie, but no. Uh, to me, the 4th of july is all about the food -- hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob. I dig it all.

Mattie: He's not kidding.

Hilary: Well, I think those are both great answers. Um... I would also love to hear from some of our backstage crew. Okay, we are gonna round some of them up while we play this next clip, which will take us straight to commercial. All right. Thank you, guys.

Mattie: Thank you.

Charlie: See ya.

Lily: Oh, my god! You guys were so cute!

Charlie: [ Groans ] Mom!

Lily: I'm sorry. I'm sorry, but you did great. You seemed knowledgeable, mature.

Mattie: [ Laughs ] One of us, anyway.

Charlie: Hey, shut up.

Cane: Hey, you were both great.

Shauna: I agree with your mom. I thought you were cute.

Hilary: Shauna!

Shauna: Got to run.

Hilary: Hey. Where's tessa?

Shauna: Um... not sure.

Hilary: Okay, well, you need to go and find her. I need to figure out what's going on with the mayor. And, um, where are the bottles of cold water that I asked for?

Shauna: Sorry, I forgot. There's been so much to do.

Hilary: If you want to work in production, you're really gonna need to step up your game, okay, sweetie?

Shauna: I'll find tessa and get the waters.

Charlie: [ Sighs ] Does hilary have to be such a witch?

Lily: Unfortunately, yes. But mom to the rescue.

Charlie: What are you gonna do?

Lily: Oh, I'm gonna help shauna find her independence.

Mattie: Get ready for the fireworks.

Hilary: Seriously? How long is this gonna take?

Shauna: Tessa's on her way. I'll get the waters.

Lily: Got it right here. Got you covered. One for now, one for later. You're very welcome. Now, if shauna is done, maybe she can take a break and enjoy the holiday like the other teenagers?

Hilary: Oh, I'm -- I'm so sorry. I didn't realize that I was stopping you from having fun.

Shauna: You've been stressed out.

Hilary: No, you know what? Tessa can handle it from here. You, go. Go have fun with your friends. Okay?

Shauna: Thanks!

Hilary: [ Sighs ] Really?

Tessa: What's up?

Hilary: I am paying you time and a half to work, not disappear. Especially since I just gave shauna the rest of the day off.

Tessa: You what? You know what? Fine. What do you need?

Hilary: I need you on set right now, and also find my makeup artist.

Shauna: Thanks. Hilary's great, but she'S...well, hilary.

Lily: I know. Well, I'm glad you're able to enjoy some of the day.

Shauna: So, we good?

Charlie: Yeah. We're -- we're great.

Shauna: Can we --

Mattie: Have fun hanging out at this awesome 4th-of-july celebration? Absolutely.

Charlie: These fireworks are gonna be dope.

Shauna: Yeah, but what about the --

Charlie: Food? It's over by the pool.

Cane: Okay, okay. All right. What's going on?

Charlie: Nothing.

Mattie: Nothing.

Cane: Nothing.

Lily: Okay. Something is up. What is it?

Mattie: We were invited to a friend's party today.

Charlie: It's fully chaperoned.

Mattie: It's a going-into-senior-year sort of thing. Everyone's gonna be there.

Lily: Well, why didn't you say anything?

Mattie: Because being together on the holidays is important to you guys. We didn't want to spoil it.

Cane: That's really considerate, okay, but... guys, just go. Do your own thing. It's okay.

Lily: Yeah. We don't want you to feel like you're stuck with us when you want to hang with your friends.

Mattie: No, it's not that we feel like we're stuck with you --

Lily: Mattie, it's fine. We want you and charlie to go.

Cane: Summer's a long time, all right? We'll have a lot of times to hang out together.

Lily: Yeah. Absolutely.

Charlie: Thanks!

Cane: All right. Have fun.

Lily: Have fun.

Charlie: See you, guys.

Mattie: Bye!

Charlie: Love you guys.

Cane: [ Sighs ]

Lily: Guess we better get used to this.

Cane: Yeah. I'm gonna have to get used to having you all to myself.

Lily: Well, when you put it that way, that doesn't sound too bad.

Cane: No?

Phyllis: Going out on

jaboat is the best way to celebrate your birthday. We are gonna have front-row seats for the fireworks.

Billy: Ah, yes. Fireworks. Every year, when I was a kid, I thought they were lighting up the sky for me.

Phyllis: Who says they weren't?

Billy: [ Chuckles ]

[ Elevator bell dings ] Here we go.

Phyllis: Yep. Whoa! What's going on here?

Billy: Arturo and the boys are finishing up the renovation that I wanted.

Phyllis: Today?

Billy: I said the same thing, but they insisted on working through the holiday, so...

Phyllis: Makes sense, I guess.

Billy: I'll just be happy to get the work done. When jack and ashley see the improvement, maybe they'll stop complaining about the money that I'm spending.

Phyllis: Oh, I wouldn't count on it.

Billy: Not that I really care what they think. I mean, if I did, I wouldn't have bought the yacht, right?

Phyllis: She really is so pretty.

Billy: Ahh!

Phyllis: Ah!

Billy: There they are.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ]

Billy: Now, let's go take out my second favorite lady.

Phyllis: Aye, aye, captain.

Billy: All right.

[ Elevator door opens ]

Arturo: Yeah. Yep. We are clear to cut power to the whole building on my countdown. Three, two, one. Cut it.

[ Elevator rumbles ]

Billy: What the...?

Cane: Uh, what I think about most on this day? Um... celebrating what lies ahead for us and our children. I am proud to raise my children here, and I am hopeful for the future, and how I think they will help us shape it.

Hilary: Well, as a parent-to-be, I couldn't agree more. Thank you, cane.

Cane: Yeah. Thank you.

Hilary: And thank you to the entire ashby family for sharing your thoughts with us today. Next up, we have another clip for you. This one features my co-host, who isn't here today. But without giving away any spoilers, it's one of my favorites from this year. Take a look.

Lily: Oh, that was so beautiful and inspiring.

Cane: Yeah.

Lily: I'm sorry mattie and charlie weren't here to see it.

Cane: Well, I'm sure they can watch it online if they want.

Lily: I can't believe how independent they've become.

Cane: Yeah. I suppose that's a good thing, considering they're going to college next year, right?

Lily: I know. I wonder what the house will be like without them?

Cane: Uh... clean and calm?

Lily: Mm-hmm. No fighting over the bathroom.

Cane: Or piles of dirty dishes in the sink.

Lily: No dirty clothes all over the floor.

Cane: After 18 years, nothing but peace and quiet.

Lily: I actually don't really care about peace and quiet.

Cane: I don't really like a clean house.

Lily: I'm gonna miss them.

Cane: I am, too. Hey, don't forget -- we get to do it all over again with sam.

Lily: That's true. You know what? I'm gonna text bridgette and check on our little guy.

Cane: [ Inhales sharply ] While you do that, I'm gonna check on the brewers score. Everything good?

Lily: Uh, yep.

Cane: Yeah? Here, too.

Lily: Mm-hmm.

Cane: Here too.

Lily: Well, now that's done, we can finally start our romantic day together.

Cane: Well, mrs. Ashby, let me kick it off.

Lily: [ Giggles ]

Esther: Cane! Lily, hi!

Lily: Hi.

Esther: It's good to see you.

Lily: Hi, esther. Happy 4th of july.

Cane: Hey, esther. How you doing?

Esther: Oh, same to you.

Cane: Hey. Oh, I'm sorry. Do you need something, or...?

Esther: Well, actually, I -- I'm here meeting some girlfriends. A group of us get together on holidays. But I'm really glad I ran into you.

Cane: Well, is there something wrong at home, or...?

Esther: Well, that's what i want to know. What is going on with mr. Chancellor's remains?

Cane: Well, you know what jack wants to do, so...

Esther: Yeah. Yes. And let me tell you something -- if jack abbott digs up that grave, mrs. C. Will be doing backflips in hers.

[ Sighs ]

[ Bags rustling ]

Abby: [ Breathing hard ] Whew!

Arturo: Abby?

Abby: Surprise! [ Laughs ]

Arturo: Hey, uh...

Abby: Hi!

Arturo: ...Don't you guys have work to do over there? What are you doing here?

Abby: Oh, well, I came to celebrate our nation's independence with you.

[ Laughs ]

Arturo: [ Chuckles ]

Abby: I brought -- look at this. Hats. We got hats. We got flags. We have decorations. Ooh! And food. [ Laughs ]

Arturo: I cannot believe that you did this. And you brought all of this up the stairs?

Abby: I did, yeah. It seemed like a really good idea, like a good cardio workout, until I got to the 11th floor.

[ Both laugh ]

[ Sighs ]

Arturo: You are so sweet for doing this, really.

Abby: I cannot believe that billy made you work on a holiday.

Arturo: It wasn't billy. No, my guys get paid double time for working holidays, and they really need the money, so I did it for them.

Abby: Could you be more perfect?

Arturo: [ Scoffs ] Hardly.

Abby: Well, I think you are. But even perfect has to eat. I have enough for your whole crew. Come on. You know that you want this chicken.

Arturo: Abby, we are really running on a tight schedule.

Abby: Really? Do you want to make me have a whole marching band playing "stars and stripes forever" march up those stairs?

Arturo: You would do that.

Abby: [ Laughs ] I totally would. And you do not want to see a pissed-off tuba player. Now, come on. What do you say? Will you let me feed you and your guys?

Arturo: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: Pretty sure that's dead.

Billy: What is going on with the backup generator?

Phyllis: I'm gonna go with that's not working, either.

Billy: Thanks a lot, sherlock.

Phyllis: Well, it doesn't mean I'm gonna give up.

Billy: Oh, now she's macgyver. What are you gonna do?

Phyllis: I don't know. Give me a second.

Billy: Come on. Just admit you got nothing.

Phyllis: You know what? Give me a boost up to that ceiling hatch.

Billy: No way.

Phyllis: Why not?

Billy: What are you gonna do when you get up there? Shimmy up the cable?

Phyllis: You don't think I can do it?

Billy: As much as I would enjoy the view, I am not letting you do that.

Phyllis: Hello, chauvinist.

Billy: I would rather think of it as giving a rat's behind about what happens to you.

Phyllis: Oh, you're so sweet.

Billy: Okay. So, now that we both agree that I'm not letting you do that and risking your life, what now?

Phyllis: I don't know. But how about this -- help! Somebody help us, please!

[ Pounds on door ] I thought you said arturo and his crew were working here today.

Billy: They are, on the executive floor. So either than can't hear us, or they're gone for the day.

Phyllis: No one else is here?

Billy: [ Sighs ] Still no signal.

Phyllis: [ Sighs angrily ] Me either. You closed the office for the rest of the week.

Billy: Yep.

Phyllis: We could be here till monday!

"The young and the restless"

will continue.

Hilary: As promised, here is one of our crew members with what this holiday means to her. Tessa?

Tessa: Um... some people say that freedom is the ultimate escape, and I couldn't agree more. 'Cause when you're free, you dare to dream, and to love honestly, without fear of being judged. You aren't afraid to live your truth, and to do and to be the best version of yourself. So, here's to independence day, and to hoping that the things that bind us are stronger than those that divide.

Hilary: Thank you, tessa, for that very interesting take on the day. Well, we need to pay some bills, so we'll be back after these messages.

Tessa: [ Sighs ]

Hilary: Okay, where is my mayor?

Tessa: Uh, let me see if there's any messages.

Hilary: Is there something wrong with the mayor?

Tessa: Uh... oh, uh, no. It's nothing to do with the mayor.

Hilary: Okay, well, then stop texting and go and find my guest!

Tessa: Uh, yeah, yeah. On it.

Hilary: Ugh.

[ Phyllis rummaging in bag ]

Phyllis: I'm waiting

Billy: [ Sighs ] For what, exactly?

Phyllis: Those three magic words.

Billy: Abracadabra, open sesame?

Phyllis: "You were right."

[ Cups clatter ]

Billy: [ Laughs ] Yes, you were right. It was a great idea to lug that bag up here. Thank god you did.

Phyllis: Yeah. You would thank me if you want me to share with you.

Billy: Thank you for not listening to me. Not that you ever do.

Phyllis: And for shoving this thing in my bag.

Billy: Another brilliant idea.

Phyllis: Uh-huh. That's right. You know why? 'Cause if we're gonna be stuck in here, might as well do it in style.

Billy: Yes. And in a place that we know intimately.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ] What, this old elevator?

Billy: Whoa, you be nice to this old elevator. Do you remember the ninth-floor button?

Phyllis: Um, I was actually recalling the fifth floor.

Billy: Oh, yes. A very memorable moment.

Phyllis: You know, a lot's changed since we hooked up in here.

Billy: [ Sighs ] Yeah. The best and worst of times.

Phyllis: The way we hurt jack... I'm happy that we found some peace with him, finally.

Billy: And with vicky.

Phyllis: Yeah. We don't have to sneak in elevators and have sex all the time.

Billy: Now, you be careful, all right? We may not have to sneak around anymore, but we are not gonna stop being us.

Phyllis: That'd be a total bummer.

Billy: Total bummer. Oooh. What have we got here?

[ Phyllis' cellphone clatters ]

Phyllis: Hey, now. No time like the present to not stop being us.

Arturo: What you just did for me and the guys was very generous. Really.

Abby: It was nothing.

Arturo: Maybe to you. But to us, it meant a lot.

Abby: Well, I was happy to do it.

[ Both chuckle ]

Arturo: As long as you understand that I don't expect this all the time, okay?

Abby: Arturo --

Arturo: No, seriously, abby. I mean it. I don't want you to ever think that I would use you in that way.

Abby: Look, I know that a relationship between us might be difficult since we're both from different social strata.

Arturo: [ Scoffs ] Being that you're from one that uses words like "strata."

Abby: Mm. But I want you to know that I see us as equals.

Arturo: Well, that's the only way I see this thing working. What?

Abby: You were just talking like you see a future with us.

Arturo: Well, I'm in this. So, uh, I guess that's up to you.

Abby: Does that answer your question?

Arturo: Yeah.

Abby: 'Cause I can make it clearer.

Arturo: [ Inhales sharply ] Oh! I have to work. But I will try to meet you on the roof deck in time for the fireworks.

Abby: Okay. Oh, um... oh! I forgot something. Here. Close your eyes. Close them right now. Let's see. Um... okay. Open them.

[ Party favor pops ]

[ Both laughing ] In case you can't make it, happy 4th.

Phyllis: [ Smooches ] Happy birthday.

Billy: Best birthday present ever.

Phyllis: We haven't even celebrated our country's birthday yet.

Billy: That's right. What do you got in mind?

Phyllis: "Hot" pyrotechnics.

Billy: We should probably catch our breath before we light those things up. Might be a little too much stimulation.

Phyllis: That's not a thing.

[ Elevator rumbles ] I think the earth just moved.

Billy: I think we're getting out of here. Hey, fellas. Happy birthday to me!

Hilary: I have always identified with this day because of what it symbolizes. Being independent. And I've always been drawn to people who share that same quality -- co-workers, friends, life partners. But by this time next year, there will be someone in my life that totally depends on me. And I feel awestruck and terrified by the idea. But also blessed, too. To be able to raise my son or daughter in a country that is filled with advantages and possibilities. So from the bottom of my heart, may god bless america, and may god bless all of you.

Tessa: And --

Hilary: [ Angrily ] Now, don't see my mayor!

Tessa: Okay. Okay. Um... I, uh, just...

Hilary: [ Huffs impatiently ]

Tessa: ...Heard from her office...

Hilary: Mm-hmm. Uh-huh.

Tessa: ...And she's not coming.

Hilary: What?!

Esther: If mrs. C. Were alive, she would give jack a good smack and tell him to snap out of it. What is wrong with him, wanting to dig up mr. Chancellor's body?

Lily: Esther, we would really rather not --

Esther: Jill is just beside herself. I know it was wrong, trying to steal mrs. C.'S husband, but she loved that man, and --

Cane: Esther, esther. Don't worry about it, okay? Because nobody is going to be digging up anybody, okay?

Esther: Well, I have known jack abbott a lot longer than either of you. And jack has a way of getting what he wants.

Cane: Well, not this time. 'Cause I will stop jack from staking his claim on the chancellor estate.

Esther: How?

Cane: By whatever means necessary.

Hilary: 10 seconds to air and I am all talked out. God! What am I gonna do?

[ Sighs ] And we are back. Um, it has been an incredible show. One that was very spontaneous, honest, and inspiring. Um... unfortunately, our surprise guest, heh, pulled a little surprise on us, and pulled out at the last minute.

Tessa: Wait, wait.

Hilary: But we're not gonna let that ruin this show -- um... in fact, you are in for a musical treat. Our guest was on our show earlier, and she has performed on my show in the past. Please give a very, very warm welcome to tessa porter.

[ Applause ]

Tessa: You owe me.

Hilary: So, what are you gonna sing for us today, tessa?

Tessa: Well, given the patriotic theme of today, I figured I'd sing the national anthem.

Hilary: Perfect. Ladies and gentlemen, tessa porter.

O, say can you see by the dawn's early light

what so proudly we hailed

at the twilight's last gleaming?

Whose broad stripes and bright stars

through the perilous fight

o'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?

And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air

gave proof through the night that our flag was still there

[ All singing ]

O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave

o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

[ Cheers and applause ]

Tell me what you're doing over there, yeah

something tells me I want you over here

don't be shy 'cause I know what you like

got no problems doing what i know feels right

boy, you know you're messing with my mind

Billy: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Where are you going? You're gonna miss the fireworks.

Arturo: Ah, you've seen one fireworks display, I think you've seen them all, no?

Abby: Good night.

Billy: Night.

Phyllis: We are never gonna live that down.

Billy: Better than being boring.

Phyllis: Way better.

My body really...

Phyllis: Hilary -- hilary!

Hilary: Hey.

Phyllis: What happened with the mayor?

Hilary: Oh, uh, never book a public official on a national holiday, okay?

...Run always my desire

just relax and take your time

take your time, take your time

Esther: Oh. Hilary. Lovely show today. Which is kind of shocking, considering it was you. But you know what they say.

Hilary: What do they say, esther?

Esther: Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. 'Course, it helps having someone as nice as tessa by your side. Cheers.

Hilary: I, um... I owe you a thank you. And an apology.

Tessa: You're welcome. But why the apology?

Hilary: For how i treated you today. Didn't exactly warrant you coming to my rescue. There's a lot about you that I don't get.

Tessa: There's nothing to get.

Hilary: I think there is a lot that people don't realize about you.

Tessa: Well, I, uh -- I'm just a girl trying to get by.

Hilary: Just a girl whose sister was involved in a sex-trafficking ring.

Tessa: Okay. If -- if you're trying to get your next story, you can look somewhere else.

Hilary: No, that's not what I --

Shauna: You ready for the fireworks?

Hilary: [ Sighs ] Yeah. Yeah, I can't wait. So, um, what was up with you earlier, not wanting to go on camera?

Shauna: Oh, I didn't want to embarrass myself. Or you.

Hilary: Embarrass yourself? How?

Shauna: By being stupid and crying on live tv.

Hilary: Why would talking about the 4th of july make you cry?

Shauna: You really don't know, do you?

Hilary: Know what?

Shauna: How much you changed my life. You've made me believe that the american dream that everybody talks about isn't just for them. It's possible for me, too.

Hilary: Wow. I, uh...

[ Chuckles ] I don't know what to say.

Shauna: Heh. That's a first.

Lily: So, what happened to your party?

Mattie: We wanted to be with you guys.

Charlie: Yeah. We knew how much it meant to you.

Mattie: It means a lot to us, too.

Lily: [ Clicks tongue ] Oh! Thank you. Thank you both.
