arrives, and overhears Jack and Ashley discussing Phyllis’s job opportunity
with Newman Enterprises. Jill decides that Phyllis is not to be trusted and as
a result will not be working for JABOT. Jack, however, wants to keep Phyllis
on, as do Ashley and Brad. Jill thinks it would be a good idea to call a board
meeting and make a decision about Phyllis immediately! Jack feels Jill has no
right to make a decision like that. Jill thinks otherwise and calls John’s
secretary to find him, so a meeting can be convened. Brad arrives, looking for
Ashley and Jill immediately fills him in on the Phyllis situation. Jill feels
Phyllis is “walking a slippery slope with our enemy” and they have no
control over her or what she might have told Newman Enterprises already.
Ashley sides with Jill on the Phyllis issue and Jack is not happy. Ashley
feels since Phyllis was not working at Jabot during the summer campaign, she
had little access to their company business. However, if she were hired on
permanently that would not be the case and Ashley wants to be assured that
Phyllis would have little access to company business. She says unless that can
be determined she can’t vote with Jack on this one. Jack wonders if they are
ganging up on him? He wants Phyllis working at JABOT since she is their
strongest asset. Ashley says they won’t be making this decision tonight, and
asks Brad to leave with her? Jack is stunned when Brad follows Ashley out.
Jill is left looking very pleased with herself.
Later on, Jill returns with the plan for the Christmas season Men’s
line. Jack is surprised to see her. Jill wonders if seeing Ashley and Brad
leave together has upset him? Jack wonders if she is just there to annoy him?
Jill says they have been through a lot over the past little while, problem
after problem, and now things are looking better. She believes he is feeling a
little out of sorts. She tells him that things are getting better. Jill, in
attempt to console Jack, kisses him. Jill wonders why Ashley and Brad are the
only ones to have a little fun? She assures Jack her “references are
impeccable,” She leaves Jack
and Ashley arrive home. Ashley is mulling over the Phyllis issue. Brad feels
if she is questioning Phyllis’ loyalty, then the decision will be easy.
Ashley tells Brad that he is someone she can count on and is relying on him
more and more. Brad thinks Ashley should not go home and put up with Jack
bothering her all the time. He thinks it would be a good idea if she stayed
with him, in the spare room. He says he is alone in this house. Ashley happily
accepts his offer.
and Phyllis arrive. Phyllis looks around and haughtily says this isn’t what
she had in mind by fancy restaurant. Michael says he tried to get into the
colonnade room but it was fully booked. Phyllis says he owes her and warns
Michael that her advice comes with a price. After they are seated, across the
room Paul’s birthday party is in full swing. Phyllis and Michael observe the
occasion. Phyllis sarcastically says they can be part of the party.
Christine are toasting to their first child. Christine admits she is tired and
would like to go home. Paul thinks she is behaving like a little mother. He
offers to drive her home? She says she wants him to stay and enjoy his party.
Nina volunteers to drive her home. Gina suggests Christine get some rest.
Christine asks them to look after Paul, she and Nina leave.
observes Michael as he watches Nina and Christine leave. She tells him not to
let this baby of Christine’s ruin his appetite. Michael feels there is
nothing he can do about the pregnancy and he will just have to get through it.
After dinner, Michael asks Phyllis what this matter was she wanted to discuss?
Phyllis fills him in on the offer from JABOT and the one from Victoria Newman.
She tells him that the job with Newman Enterprises means more money and
responsibilities. Michael reminds her that when she left Genoa City, she was
not Victor Newman’s favorite person and it may cause problems.
Phyllis feels the worst Victor can do, is fire her. She realizes that
by working for Newman Enterprises, she would have destroyed any chance with
JABOT. Michael warns her that Victor can play dirty when he wants to and she
should be careful. He thinks Victor could ship her off somewhere and there
would be nothing she could do about it, once she was working for them. Phyllis
decides she needs to get everything she wants in writing and do it before
Victor returns. She is sure she can do it and asks Michael to draw up the
contract for her. Michael says that no matter what decision she makes, he is
happy she is back, as she makes life interesting.
Phyllis says, “don’t I though” and kisses Michael across the
suggests to Mary that a baby shower would be nice for Christine and Paul. Mary
thinks Lynn should handle it, as she is closer to Christine in age and will
know what she would like. Lynn tells Paul about Mary’s reaction to the idea
of a baby shower. Paul feels Mary will be first in line at the time of
delivery and not to worry about it. Tomas thinks Mary should be very proud.
Mary says she is very proud, as she has fulfilled her duties as a parent. As
the party begins to break up, Gina gives Paul and Tomas cake for Christine and
Nina. Paul jokingly suggests pickles and ice cream for Christine. He thanks
her for a terrific party. She tells him he already sounds like a proud father
and she says she was happy to help him celebrate.
and Nina are talking. Christine wishes she had told Paul the truth about
having doubts about a baby now. Nina says that lots of mothers to be have
doubts and not to beat herself up over it. She says 5 years from now, when
they have kids running around, and then she can say something. She says that
things will turn out ok for Christine. Paul arrives, and teases Nina about
keeping Christine from getting her rest. Nina tells Christine to get some rest
and leaves. Paul presents Christine with the cake from Gina’s. Christine
says she isn’t hungry and asks him to save it. Paul teases her about
“eating for two”. When he notices she doesn’t seem very happy, he asks
what’s wrong? Christine says she wants to be sure she is pregnant and wants
to have the test confirmed. Paul is surprised by this announcement.
warns Ryan that Tricia is using him and begs him not to get drawn in again.
He says he is not being drawn in again and asks her not to treat him
like a child. Victoria reminds Ryan he had the divorce papers drawn up and
their marriage is over. Ryan believes that this whole mess got started when
Tricia lost the baby. He says if he can play a role in her getting well, then
he will do it. Victoria wonders if they are reconciling? Ryan says it hasn’t
come to that yet. He says this is important to him, if Tricia gets better, he
may find the woman he fell in love with. Victoria sarcastically remarks that
Tricia was a “girl” when he fell “in lust”. She doesn’t believe they
were ever suited. Ryan says they have had some difficult times but have had
some good ones as well.
says she just wants to be sure he understands what he is getting himself in
to? Ryan says he has made a decision and walks out.
is waiting for Ryan. Carter saunters over to chat and is pleased to see she
didn’t leave town. He says he can help her if she wants? Tricia, slightly
amused, says she doesn’t need his help and is waiting for someone. Carter
goes over to the coffee bar; Ryan comes in, looking upset. Tricia deduces it
has something to do with Victoria. Ryan says he can handle Victoria. He
suggests going home and having dinner? Tricia agrees and they leave. Carter
and Cody watch Tricia and Ryan leave. Carter remarks that “she is the
beautiful girl, I mentioned.” Cody tells him that Tricia is trouble, she
left town under a cloud of suspicion and some people wish she hadn’t come
tells Carter that Tricia is married and not to get any ideas. Carter (to
himself) says he has plenty of ideas.
and Marissa are sharing a Chinese dinner. Diane remarks that she is thrilled
Victoria is gone. Marissa notes that Victoria has not sent for the rest of her
bags and isn’t convinced that Victoria is gone for good. Diane feels that
with Victor away, it will give him time to adjust to the idea of being a
family. Marissa tells her to be careful and not to develop false hope. Diane
feels she is being very sensible about the situation. She believes since
Victor has not asked her to leave, then he is coming to terms with them being
Victor speaks to Neil on the phone, finishing up business dealings and tells him he will be home soon. He asks Neil to keep an eye on things for him, while he is away. After hanging up, Victor is sorting through papers in his briefcase. He notices an unopened letter from Robertson Laboratories. He opens the letter and reads there were irregularities involving his “deposit”. He thinks back on the day Diane told him she was pregnant with his child. Victor calls Diane. She is thrilled to hear from him. He tells her he was checking on her. He tells her he will be home soon and offers to call again. He says good night. Diane thanks him and says goodnight. After hanging up, Diane tells Marissa “I was right!” Victor, frowning “I am looking forward to seeing you, Diane Jenkins!”
