Abby: Do you think we should put out coffee and tea? Ooh, and the good silver.

Chance: You know, I really don't think that that's necessary.

Abby: If we're not gonna use katherine's silverware now, when are we ever gonna use it? This is a big occasion.

Chance: Yeah, I know. It just might be a bit much.

Abby: "Much"?

[ Laughs ] I think it might not be enough. I mean, what's the protocol when asking someone to carry your baby?

Chance: I know. I, too, am a bit unclear on the gestational carrier etiquette. But I don't think that we have to impress her like that. We should just be who we are.

Abby: [ Sighs ] I know. I know. That makes sense. I'm just -- I'm so nervous. This is like the biggest first date of my life.

Chance: Sweetheart, it's gonna be okay. Just breathe. Relax. Know that we're get through this. But what we have to remember is, once we ask her, the decision is hers. It will be more or less out of our hands at that point.

Abby: I know, and I'm prepared for that. And I know there are a million reasons why she might say no, but I'm just really hoping for a "yes."

[ Doorbell rings ]

Chance: I'll get it.

Abby: No, no! No. I -- I got it.

Billy: Hey, kiddos! Daddy's here to take care of you on this snow day. Hannah, if you can hear me, you can go home! I got it from here! Johnny, katie, I got some pastries here for you. I got a cruller for you, katie, some chocolate thing for you, johnny.

Victoria: Hi. What's all the shouting about?

Nick: Yeah, okay. I look forward to closing those deals. Yeah. Let's talk soon.

Phyllis: Listen to you, "closing deals."

Nick: We just added two new new hope locations in the state. We are really making progress.

Phyllis: Aww, you guys are doing great things.

Nick: Yep, we are. You know what? I'm not doing anything right now, though, and I've got a little time before I'm supposed to meet up with this builder. What are you doing right now?

Phyllis: Uh...nothing. What did you have in mind?

Nick: I think you know what i have in mind.

Phyllis: I do now. It's the only thing you've had on your mind since I put up that new game console in my room.

Nick: [ Breathes deeply ] Rematch.

Phyllis: Okay. Let's go.

Nick: Let's go.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

[ Cellphone pings ]

Nick: Please tell me that's somebody you can ignore.

Phyllis: Ugh! Well, I mean, I can'T. It's summer, our daughter. She wants to meet. She says it's important.

Summer: Oh, I am so happy to be back.

Kyle: Whoa. Are you saying you didn't enjoy your time in L.A.?

Summer: No. I did. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I just think it was the perfect combination between business, pleasure, and gathering ammunition.

Kyle: Mm, and the perfect weather.

Summer: Yeah, I just can't believe sally. I mean, you would have thought that after everything she did back in california that she would have -- I don't know -- dyed her hair, changed her name, and erased all traces of her past before she moved here.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

[ Exhales heavily ]

Jack: Everything okay in here?

[ Cellphone thuds ]

Sally: Yeah. Everything's fine.

Summer: I'm sorry, but i cannot believe sally's nerve. She faked a terminal disease and then kidnapped a woman to cover up her life. Did she really think that her past wouldn't catch up to her?

Kyle: Don't let yourself get too wound up about this. The goal was to get information so you could understand who you're up against, not to wreck her life.

Summer: [ Sighs ] Get this, I have my stouffer's bowl-fulls

Summer: Oh, so, you're both here, huh?

Nick: Yeah. Yes. Your mother said you had some big news?

Summer: Oh, my god. Okay, no, I am not engaged or married or pregnant, so let's just all calm down, okay?

Phyllis: Ahh.

Nick: [ Chuckling ] We weren't worried about that. But it's nice to hear.

Phyllis: So...whew! How was your L.A. Trip?

Summer: Um, it was good. It's actually kind of what i wanted to talk to you about. Um, the business side of it was really good. It was really productive. Um, let's see. I met with a media company. And, oh, I found a new location for a jcv boutique.

Nick: Look at our little girl.

Phyllis: I know! Not only running a fashion line, but kicking butt.

Nick: Yep. I am gonna walk around with my head a little higher today. I'm very proud of you, super girl.

Summer: Thank you.

Phyllis: Yes.

Summer: Although I can't tell if you're more proud that I'm running jcv or that I am not pregnant, married, or engaged.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ]

Nick: It's a close call, but it doesn't take away how proud i am of you. So, is this why you wanted to meet up, to just brag about all your accomplishments?

Summer: Uh, yeah. Pretty much.

Phyllis: Uh...you have a meeting, right?

Nick: Yeah, but it's not for quite a while.

Summer: Uh, no, dad, hey, i don't want you to be late on my account. Really, it's no big deal.

Nick: Really? Okay. I got it. I got it. I'll just go and do something else.

Summer: Love you.

Nick: Bye.

Phyllis: What? What do you not want to talk about in front of your dad?

Summer: Okay, so, my trip to L.A. Wasn't just about business. I wanted to get the real scoop on lauren's new assistant, sally spectra.

Phyllis: Uh...okay. You told me about her.

Summer: Yeah, well, my instincts were right. Mom, she is trouble.

Phyllis: How much trouble?

Summer: Okay, uh, let's just put it this way -- if I go missing anytime soon, you can just assume that sally spectra kidnapped me because she has done it before.

Sally: I was just following up on my marketing pitch to lauren. Now that she's on board, I have to figure out how to implement all my ideas.

Jack: Well, good luck with that. I'll get out of your way. I just dropped by on my way to get some coffee.

Sally: That sounds good. I could use a shot of caffeine.

Jack: Well, I can get you a cup.

Sally: No, don't be ridiculous. The ceo should not make coffee runs.

Jack: Nonsense. I'm there anyway. Besides, the look on your face when I walked in was pretty intense. Let me make your day a little easier.

Sally: [ Chuckles ] Well, thank you. That is very sweet of you.

[ Chuckles ]

Victoria: Well, the pilot -- he grounded the flight because of the weather.

Billy: The weather? It's barely snowing outside. I mean, I was surprised that the kids are off of school.

Victoria: Well, according to the weather forecast, the ice is the dangerous part, and it's only gonna get worse as the day goes on. I'm sure that the schools are just being cautious.

Billy: So you're not going to hawaii?

Victoria: We'll just finish the deal remotely. It'll be fine.

Billy: And what about hanging out with your mom, sitting in the sand?

Victoria: I can't tell whether you're joking about that or not.

Billy: I'm being dead serious. When was the last time you went on vacation with your mother?

Victoria: We'll go on one eventually. But for now, we're staying here.

Billy: Okay. Well, if you have it handled here, I'll head back to the office.

Victoria: Wait. No. Don't go. Not yet. I mean, the kids already heard your voice. I'm sure they know you're here. They'll be disappointed. And it's not that often that you get to spend time at the house with everyone. It would be like -- it would be a treat for them.

Billy: Well, speaking of treat, I hope that the doughnuts will make up for it.

Victoria: I think you're underestimating how much the kids like having you around. And I bet there's a chocolate cream doughnut in the bag that you were planning on eating.

Billy: I will neither confirm or deny that. But I do. I do have a lot of work to get done at the office.

Victoria: I do, too. I have work, too. I was planning on working from home. If you brought your computer, you can probably just get as much done here as you could at the office. And lily's out of town, so there's no real reason to go to chanccomm, right?

Billy: [ Sighs ]

Mariah: Do you ever just look around here and think, "I live here. This is crazy. It's like a national treasure. I live in a national treasure."

Abby: I say that all the time.

Mariah: I mean, there has to be rooms that you've never even been in before, right?

Chance: There is an entire wing I've never seen before. I'm not really sure what katherine used it for. Meditation? Aerobics? I don't know.

Mariah: Well, I've been worried about you, but you look great.

Abby: Thank you. And I appreciate all the kindness and the support, mostly in the form of dance videos.

Mariah: You know me. If a friend needs cheering up, i will gladly bust a move. And you seemed to get a kick out of me and tessa the other night at our impromptu girls night.

Chance: It really cheered her up. Thank you. That was a big help.

Mariah: Good. Well, have you, uh, heard anything from the specialist that victor brought in?

Abby: Um, they concurred with the original diagnosis. I am not able to carry a baby.

Mariah: Abby, I'm so sorry.

Abby: But, no, no, we are not gonna dwell on the negative. We are moving forward. And we have made some decisions.

Mariah: That's great. I'm so glad.

Chance: We're not giving up on having a baby.

Abby: We just have to go about it a little differently.

Mariah: So, what are you gonna do?

Abby: Since my eggs are still viable, we have opted for gestational surrogacy.

Mariah: Wow! That's amazing. I'm so happy for you guys. You guys are gonna be such great parents. So, what is the first step?

Chance: Uh, we are looking for our surrogate.

Abby: Our gestational carrier.

Mariah: Perfect. Well, I want to help. How do we find her?

Chance: [ Sighs ]

Do a dollop, do do a dollop

Mariah: Finding a surrogate must be hard.

Abby: It is.

Mariah: Carrying somebody else's child -- that's a huge responsibility.

Chance: Yeah.

Mariah: How do you find someone willing to do that?

Chance: Um, I need to check in with the station. If you'll excuse me. I'll be right back.

Mariah: I'm sorry. I'm not asking questions that are too pushy, right?

Abby: No! No, no, no. I mean, there are so many questions that need to be answered. I mean, this is the biggest decision that we could ever ask anyone to make. And there is a lot that goes into the process. I mean, there's testing and treatments and doctors' appointments and, well, a lot of hoping and praying. And there are no guarantees. But if it does work... then we're gonna have a baby. And the woman who carried our baby would be giving us the greatest gift of joy.

Mariah: Yeah. That's a pretty miraculous gift. And all from someone you've never even met.

Abby: Well, we were hoping that our surrogate wouldn't be a stranger.

Mariah: Oh.

Abby: We were hoping that it could be someone that we're close with, someone that we care about...someone who has stepped up for me before.

Mariah: Oh. Uh... so...you -- you want me to carry your baby?

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Summer: No, and, you know, the worst part is jack is on sally's side. He doesn't know any of the stuff that she pulled back in L.A.

Phyllis: I have to tell you that I'm very impressed at your reconnaissance skills, very, very impressed, summer. That's gonna get you far in business, okay? But I don't like you working with this girl at all. She's a loose cannon.

Summer: It's fine. I can handle her.

Phyllis: It's just, if she's this ambitious, she's dangerous.

Summer: I know. I know. When I was looking for information, I was just looking for something to neutralize her, you know, something embarrassing. I wasn't expecting to find a fake terminal illness and an abduction.

Phyllis: Wow. That's crazy.

Summer: So, if you were in my shoes, just tell me please how you would use this.

Phyllis: Okay, listen, um, it's funny that you should mention this because just recently, something big came to me on an adversary.

Summer: Okay, and what did you do?

Phyllis: Well, my first reaction was to, you know, take it and freak out, you know, burn it to the ground, of course metaphorically 'cause I would never commit arson. Like, I would never do something like that, like, burn something.

Summer: Yeah. Got it. So?

Phyllis: Yeah. I relaxed. I did not react. I kept it close to the vest. That's what I did. It's the wiser thing to do.

Summer: Okay, but I want to beat her to the punch. I can tell that she's gonna pull something, and I can't just wait around for it.

Phyllis: I am not telling you to wait around for it. I am saying be smart. Keep this information to yourself for now. Summer, I've learned from experience that sometimes to act rashly, it backfires on you.

Summer: Okay, so, you're -- you're taking the high road these days.

Phyllis: No. No, I'm not taking the high road.

[ Chuckles ] I'm taking the wise road.

Summer: Okay, but if you were my age, what would you have done then?

Phyllis: Okay, let me tell you something. If I were your age, in this scenario, I wouldn't be you. I'd be that -- what's her name?

Summer: Sally.

Phyllis: This sally person. I'd be sally. Consider that when you want to make your next move, okay?

Sally: [ Sighs ] Hey! How was your trip to L.A.?

Kyle: Um...great. I had some productive jabot meetings, and summer made real progress with jcv.

Sally: Well, that is all well and good, but, um, where'd you eat? Any celebrity sightings? I need an L.A. Fix, so please just give me something.

Kyle: [ Chuckles ] I, uh -- I don't really have any time to get into the details. I've really got to get some work done.

Sally: Yeah, no, of course. We'll catch up later. Maybe the three of us can grab drinks, you, me, and summer.

Kyle: Maybe. I'll talk to her about that and get back to you. Yeah, I've really got to read this quarterly report.

Sally: Kyle... wait. [ Chuckles ] I have been suffering with migraine for years and years.

Katie: Johnny, let me try!

Billy: Sounds like a got a sibling rivalry about to brew.

Victoria: Oh, hopefully they'll work it out themselves.

Billy: Ah. We'll see. I guess not. Hey, buddy, what's going on?

Johnny: I'm building a fort for my polar bear.

Billy: Are you using actual wood to build it? 'Cause it sounds like it.

Victoria: Honey, we need to get some work done.

Billy: Let me make you a deal, okay? Just be quiet and then we'll finish our work and then I'll come in and play with you after, alright?

Johnny: Katie, we have to be quiet!

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Are you actually getting anything done?

Katie: Do we have to be really quiet or kinda quiet?

Victoria: Kinda quiet would be nice, sweetie.

Katie: [ Sighs ]

Billy: Oh, "huh." You know she gets that from you.

Victoria: Well, I'm working, okay? I've learned to tune them out.

[ Loud crash ] For the most part.

Billy: Why don't you go to the office and get some work done and I'll stay here with the kids?

Victoria: I told you -- I'm supposed to be in hawaii. I don't have anything pressing on my schedule. And besides, I like the sound of kids playing. It's very homey.

[ Loud bang ]

Billy: Until somebody needs medical attention. Hey! What's going on in there?

Victoria: Hi, nick. What's going on?

Billy: Boo! Oh, I'm gonna get you! Daddy dinosaur gonna...

Nick: Hate to interrupt a board meeting.

Victoria: Huh. Not quite. Those are even rowdier. What's going on?

Nick: Figured you'd be with your kids. Sounds like I'm right.

[ Laughter ] You running a daycare now?

Victoria: Uh, billy's here. He's even louder than the kids.

Billy: Alright, you ready?

Nick: Okay. Well, mom told me your trip was canceled, so I wanted to call you and see if you wanted to go sledding with me and christian.

Victoria: Oh, that's so sweet of you to offer.

Nick: Well, it's not hawaii, but it'll be fun.

Victoria: You know, uh, billy's here playing with the kids and they're having fun, so I think we're just gonna stick around here.

Nick: Hanging with billy.

Victoria: Stop it. It's not like that.

Billy: Alright, you ready?

Victoria: I'll talk to you later.

Billy: You literally disappeared. How did you do that? Where are you? I think I see something back here! Ahh, there you are. I'm gonna eat you both up. Get over here. Okay. [ Claps hands ]

Sally: I don't want to keep you from your work, okay? I just need to know -- who did you see in L.A.?

Kyle: I'm guessing we're not talking about celebrities now. And I'm also guessing you already know who we saw.

Sally: I saw summer post a photo of herself with flo and that she had a meeting with spencer publications.

Kyle: Mm-hmm, that's right. And those meetings were about real business, not about you.

Sally: I don't doubt it, but I can't imagine what you must have heard.

Kyle: Well, I'm pretty sure you have a good idea.

Sally: All I ask is that you just consider that there are two sides to every story.

Kyle: I don't care about what happened in L.A.

Sally: I appreciate that, but I have to clear some things up.

Kyle: No, you don'T.

Sally: No, I feel like I have okay, I have made some mistakes, yes, and I've acted irresponsibly and even recklessly at times. But all of my actions were motivated by love and passion. And I feel like you can understand that. I have heard about the twists and turns your relationship with summer has taken.

Kyle: I'm not comfortable discussing my personal life with you.

Summer: And I get that. Really, I do. And you're right, okay? All of that crazy and passionate, irrational stuff that comes from the heart is personal. And here at fenmore's, I just want to be lauren's right hand, so please can you let me have that and not bury me with my past mistakes?

Kyle: Like I said, I am not interested in what you did in L.A.

Sally: Does summer feel the same way?

Kyle: I don't speak for her. I've got to get some work done.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

[ Cellphone ringing ]

[ Sighs heavily ]

[ Exhales sharply ]

Abby: Mariah? Are you okay?

Mariah: Yeah. I think, um... I think there was a misunderstanding.

Abby: No. No, you are exactly right. Chance and I want you to carry our baby.

Mariah: Me? Your -- your baby?

> Abby: Chance, can you come in here, please?

Chance: Is she okay?

Abby: I think she might be in shock.

Chance: Look, mariah, we know that this is an enormous thing that we're asking of you. And we completely understand if you don't feel that it's right for you.

Abby: I want you to know that you are the first person that we thought of. I want to have a connection with our surrogate. I want it to be someone that I'm good friends with, and it's you. You are such a good friend. And you are strong and loyal and independent. And I know that our baby will have a fierce protector until he or she is born, and then we will take over.

Chance: It's important to us that the person carrying our child is someone that we trust. And it's also important that they know what this means to us.

Abby: I know this is a lot to take in. But, mariah...I believe deep down in my heart -- I know -- i know that you would be the perfect person to bring our baby into this world.

Mariah: I feel like my head is spinning.

Chance: We don't want you to feel any pressure.

Abby: And if you want, i can -- I can walk you through anything that you would like to know.

Mariah: Um, no, um... no, I-I-I -- not right now. I need some time.

Abby: Can I get you something to eat or something to drink?

Mariah: No, I need time to think. I need to talk to tessa.

Chance: Absolutely. That's -- that's a great idea.

Mariah: Okay. I'm gonna go.

Abby: No, y-you don't have to run off.

Mariah: No, no, I'm just, uh... I'm just gonna go.

Chance: [ Sighs ]

"The young and the restless"

will continue.

Sally: [ Sighs ] Jack.

Jack: Sally. You seem upset.

Sally: [ Sighs ] I -- I need to talk to you. I didn't know who else to talk to. I just got a call.

Jack: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Tell me what's going on.

Sally: I messed up. And I'm embarrassed to even tell you this, but I really need your help.

Jack: Just tell me what the problem is.

Sally: [ Sighs ] I made a mistake on a fenmore's shipment. I missed the deadline, and now we're gonna be late delivering all of the merchandise from the warehouse to fashion week.

Jack: Okay, this wouldn't the first time a shipping deadline has been missed. There's a way to fix this.

Sally: Yeah, I'm sure there is, but I am so new. I don't want to let lauren down. She put all of her faith in me, and I cannot believe that I did this.

Jack: Okay, okay, okay. Here's what we're gonna do. It's very easy. We will piggyback the fenmore shipment with the jabot shipment that's going out in the next two hours.

Sally: [ Sighs ] Do you think that'll work?

Jack: We've done it before in an emergency. You're still in charge of getting the merchandise from the fenmore's warehouse to the jabot trucks, but they'll take it from there. Tell them I sent you.

Sally: Thank you, really. I knew that you would have an answer.

Jack: I'm happy I could help. Listen, you're really good with the details usually. Clearly something was on your mind this morning that was really weighing on you, and I'm not convinced it was deciding how to implement your marketing decisions.

Sally: I-I... I really don't want to get into it. But I just want to thank you for being my hero.

Billy: When I was a kid, we always went to school. It didn't matter if there was three foot of snow. We went on sundays. We went half-days, even on christmas.

Victoria: That's not even remotely true.

Billy: That is very true. Okay, what do you want to do now? Mom? Ohh!

Johnny: Can we make cookies?

Billy: That's an incredible idea, although we do know that we got to keep mom as far away from the oven as possible.

Victoria: Why would you say that?

Billy: Well, your history with baking cookies is a little suspect!

Victoria: Are you talking about the time that I made that recipe that nick raved about? Those chocolate chip cookies were fine. They were just a little well done, that's all.

Billy: A little well done? They were on fire when you put them in the cookie jar.

Victoria: Oh, please stop exaggerating.

Billy: Johnny, do you remember when mommy burnt the cookies?

Johnny: Which time?

Billy: [ Laughing ] Whoa! Ow. Ohh.

Victoria: Okay, if you guys feel that you need to gang up on me, then do it yourself. Have at it. The ingredients are in the kitchen. Get to work. I'm gonna go upstairs. I'm gonna take a bubble bath. I better not smell any burned cookies down here.

Billy: Oh, you won'T. And please send katie down so she can do some beautiful little decorations on them.

Victoria: Oh, you're gonna have frosted cookies. Well, that's very ambitious.

Johnny: It's fun having everybody together.

Tessa: Hey. Whoa. Are you okay? What happened?

Mariah: Can you picture me pregnant?

Tessa: Uh... [ Chuckles ] I-I'm sorry. I didn't expect that. Uh, where's this coming from?

Mariah: Just answer the question. Can you envision me as a pregnant person?

Tessa: Are you filming me? Is this, like, a social-media prank?

Mariah: It's not a prank.

Tessa: I don't understand.

Mariah: Abby and chance -- they asked me to be their... gestational carrier... their surrogate for their baby. Abby's fertilized egg, my body, and then a baby, I guess.

Tessa: Wow.

Mariah: Exactly. "Wow."

Chance: Maybe we should have given her more facts up front, you know? Logistical details.

[ Sighs ] I don't know. That may have sent her running for the hills even faster.

[ Sighs ] I-I guess we could have brought up the idea more generally speaking instead of specifically asking her to do it, give her some time to think over the idea. I don't know about that, either. That feels deceptive. Look, we both made the decision that we were gonna be up front and honest with her about it. And when you brought up mariah, I was like, "yes, that's a great idea," but we might need to start thinking of someone else. So, what are you thinking? Abby? You okay?

Abby: [ Sighs ] Darrell's family uses gain flings now so their laundry

Summer: Hey.

Kyle: Did you talk to your mom?

Summer: Yeah. She gave me some real "do as i say, not as I do" advice. She wants me to lay back and hold on to this information i have about sally.

Kyle: That doesn't sound like phyllis.

Summer: No, I know. Apparently she's forgotten what it's like to have someone show up and try to steal your job and your man.

Kyle: You're not in danger of losing your man. Give me some credit, please.

[ Chuckles ] And secondly, I think I agree with phyllis.

Summer: You do?

Kyle: Partially because i just spoke with sally.

Summer: Okay, uh, I don't know why you didn't tell me that sooner, and what did she say?

Kyle: Okay, well, I didn't confront her directly about anything we learned in L.A., But she saw the photo you posted with flo, and she knows. And she's scared.

Summer: Mm, scared enough to -- I don't know -- leave town and never come back?

Kyle: [ Chuckling ] No. She knows she's got a good gig working for lauren. She's not about to give that up.

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Kyle: And I think she knows she needs to be on her best behavior. You've got her right where you want her.

Summer: Oh, I don't know. I'm not convinced. You know, what if she feels like her back is against the wall and, nothing to lose, she decides to lash out? And we both know exactly how far sally's willing to go.

Phyllis: Hey. How's it going?

Jack: Well, hello there.

Phyllis: Who's your friend?

Jack: Sally spectra, this is phyllis summers. Phyllis is --

Phyllis: Oh, yeah, I heard that lauren got a new assistant. That's great. Summer told me.

Sally: How do you know summer?

Phyllis: I'm her mother.

Sally: Summer is the greatest.

Phyllis: She is the greatest. I'm glad you're a fan.

Sally: Yeah, it's -- I have a lot to learn from her. It's been very impressive watching her and lauren in action.

[ Cellphone ringing ] Oh, uh, the shipping manager. I got to take this. Excuse me.

Phyllis: What are you doing?

Jack: I can only imagine what summer has told you about sally. That is water under the bridge. They are both valued assets for lauren at fenmore.

Phyllis: So you know everything about her?

Jack: She's a friend.

Phyllis: Okay. Good luck to you.

Jack: Thank you.

Sally: Hey. Crisis averted.

Jack: Excellent. I'm glad to hear that.

Sally: [ Sighs ] It's like it never even happened. Lauren will never have to know.

Jack: I'm so happy I could help.

Tessa: So, chance and abby asked you to be their surrogate. Don't leave me hanging. What did you say?

Mariah: I honestly don't know. I heard them out, and then i made a beeline for the door. It was just too much to handle. I mean, I definitely didn't agree to it. I know that for sure. I wouldn't do that without talking to you.

Tessa: Well, we're talking now.

Mariah: I think chance was about to give me some details before I ran out of there.

Tessa: Well, I mean, it's not really worth going into the details if you're not thinking of going through with it.

Mariah: A baby. Not my baby, but my body, this increasingly growing belly. I mean, I don't even know if i can get pregnant. What if we try and it fails and then I'm the one who broke abby's heart?

Tessa: I don't think that's how she would see it.

Mariah: What if it works? Then what? Nine months. Nine months. I-I-I can't eat sushi. I can't go on a roller coaster. I-I can't drink a cosmo.

Tessa: Are you riding a lot of roller coasters these days?

Mariah: No. But I might want to, and... this is crazy, right? Nine months. I mean, this -- this all sounds completely crazy.

Tessa: It's a lot to ask, definitely. But...crazy? I don't know. I think the only real question you have to ask yourself is, "is this something I truly want to do?" I'm a performer.

[ Laughter ]

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Billy: Lily. Hey. How's new york?

[ Clears throat ] Well, that's good. Well, I'm glad you're having fun. Yeah. I miss you, too.

[ Chuckles ]

Chance: You still haven't answered me. Are you alright?

Abby: Yeah. Honestly, I'm -- I'm not upset. I'm not even really surprised. I mean, yes, I was hoping that mariah would jump on board immediately and say yes, but that's not realistic. It's a lot to ask.

Chance: It really is.

Abby: That's why, no matter what her choice is, I'm not gonna hold it against her.

Chance: I have no idea what she's going to decide. I mean, that look on her face. I knew she would be surprised, but she looked completely thrown.

Abby: She was, yeah. And I know there are gonna be lots of ups and downs on this journey, and...I'm ready.

Chance: That's good to hear.

Abby: Because I can see our baby. I can see a clear picture in my mind, and I can feel him or her in my heart. And I know with total confidence that it's gonna happen... one way or another.

Tessa: Well?

Mariah: I don't know. I can't answer your question, just like I couldn't answer abby'S. The thought of carrying a baby, someone else's baby -- it's just too much to think about.

Tessa: Well, the good news is you don't have to decide right now. I mean, you don't even have to decide while you're deciding. Just take your time and mull it over.

Mariah: Are you being this calm and rational because you want me to do it?

Tessa: Uh, no. I am being calm and rational as a counterpoint to you. But... look, I'm taking this seriously because I can tell that you are.

Mariah: How do you know that, after I just spouted all that nonsense about roller coasters?

Tessa: Because you haven't said no.

Jack: Hey. Good to have you back.

Summer: Hey. Yeah, it's, uh -- it's nice to be back.

Jack: I heard your trip to L.A. Was very productive.

Summer: Yeah, uh, it was enlightening. In fact, you have no idea just how eye-opening it was.
