Restless Tuesday, December 12th, 2000--Canada; Wednesday, December 13th, 2000--USA
Phyllis is telling Michael how invigorating she
feels after her date with Jack the night before. They are sitting in the
Coffeehouse. She tells him that she isn't going to kiss and tell. She wants him
to leave things to his imagination. Michael wishes that he had someone, but
still he is happy for her and wishes her luck, and promptly leaves.
Jill is asking Jack how things went with his date with Phyllis the night before.
He tells her that he had a pleasant evening the night before. He thinks that he
might see her again. He is certainly up to the task at hand. Jill doesn't doubt
that he is.
Tricia wakes up and realizes that she has fallen asleep at Matt's. She runs to
the phone and calls Ryan. ‘Carter’ comes out of the bathroom and sees her
frantically trying to make her call. She doesn't reach him and panics.
‘Carter’ tries to make her relax explaining that he may think that she was
still asleep and doesn't even realize that she was gone at all. He thinks that
she was really something the night before. The first time that they were
together, she wasn't really into it, but the night before was really different.
Tricia thinks that it may be better for her to go at Victoria face to face and
not sneak around using the computer. She isn't accusing ‘Carter’, but maybe
they have been going about things the wrong way. He will walk away from Victoria
if she wants him to, but he will not walk away from her. He knows that she wants
to be the best that she can be. He encourages her to be herself, to show herself
as someone that cannot be abused. He kisses her and Tricia succumbs to his
charms once again. They move to the bed and make love once again.
Ryan arrives at work and Victoria wants to know what has been going on with
Tricia. He tells her that he hasn't seen Tricia that morning. Her bedroom door
was closed so he just got ready for work and left. He tells Victoria to back
off. He has told her one hundred times to butt out.
Victor walks in on Ryan and Victoria's conversation and they start talking
business. Phyllis arrives and wants to join their meeting. Victor tells her to
come in. Phyllis tells them that she has found out that Jabot is scrambling to
find a way to beat Newman’s campaign. Phyllis has found out that Jabot is
going to have a contest. Victoria laughs at that. She enjoys the fact that Jabot
is scrambling away to beat them. Victor doesn't look as happy as the others.
Phyllis suggests that they look at the Jabot line at that moment. Victoria
offers her laptop to see the results of what they are working on.
Brittany is telling Billy that she is not thrilled to have to spend time with
Raul and Rianna. The four of them can barely spend time together as it is. She
is not trying to cause trouble. She just doesn't think that leaving Mac out of
the whole thing is not the way to go. She reminds him that they were about to
make love the other night, and that maybe they should get together again real
soon. Billy smiles at that and they both walk out together.
Raul brings Rianna a drink while they spend time at the Coffeehouse. They kiss
and share small talk. Mac comes in and sees them together. Raul sees her over
Riana's shoulder. They invite her over and they tell her that they are going
over to Jabot later. Mac remarks that things are just like old times. Raul and
Rianna assure Mac that they can still hang out together. Raul leaves to get more
for them to drink. Rianna tells Mac that it would be good if Mac brings a friend
with them when they go out. She even offers to get someone to go out with Mac.
Mac says that she will think it over. Mac is facing the door when Brittany
Brittany and Billy go to a table together and wonder if they made a mistake
going there. Brittany tries to plan a way that they can get together to make
love. There is no where that they can go to make love, but they will find
Nina comes to see Chris and Paul tells her that Chris didn't come home the night
before. Paul is sure that Chris just had some work to do. He is not very happy
at the trip that is coming up. Some of his contacts are not happy with his
decision. He is hoping that the idea will grow on him, but right at that moment
he doesn't feel as happy as Chris does about it. Nina thinks that Paul should
show some enthusiasm. He is worried about the extended stay in Hong Kong. He
made the decision in desperation. He wants to believe that things are going to
work out, but they still have issues that they can't work out. He is taking the
leap with both feet. Nina has to leave, but she believes that he is doing the
right thing and thinks that he should believe it too.
Michael arrives at work and speaks to the secretaries. He remarks that they are
getting ready for Chris to leave soon. Michael walks into Chris's office and
finds her sleeping curled up on her sofa in her office. He walks over and takes
a file from under her and this awakens her. He tells her that today is the big
day of their case. She is obviously embarrassed at him finding her there. He
tells her that she is working herself too hard. She is sure that she is going to
be fine. She wants to be ready for the case. She doesn't want to be busy with
work the whole time while she is in Hong Kong. He thinks that she should be
confident about her work. She doesn't want any negativity. She is going to forge
ahead and make the best out of the situation. Michael thinks that this is a very
important case, but they may not get it and maybe that would be for the best.
The secretary enters and informs Chris that the phone call that she was
expecting is here. She was advised to take line one. Chris is reluctant to take
the call, so Michael picks up the phone for her.
Ashley comes downstairs dressed for work and looking like her old self again.
Brad informs her that he has contacted a lawyer to get some information on
adopting their baby. Someone is at the door. It is the baby-sitter. Brad answers
the door and greets Francis. Ashley immediately gets on her about what she
wants. The sitter immediately heads for the stairs to go and be with the baby.
After she leaves, Brad assures her that the baby will be fine. They both decided
that Ashley should go back to work. He would prefer that she take some more time
off, but she is ready to go. There is an important meeting and she has some new
ideas. She won't tell Brad ahead of time though.
Raul gets Mac a drink and Nick and Sharon arrive and find out that things are
going really well with their business. Nick offers to get them some coffee.
Sharon tells him that Victor was asking about the Coffeehouses. She was pleased
with their meeting, but Nick is not so sure that he believes that Victor is okay
with them branching out. He hopes that she is right in her thinking. Sharon and
Nick discuss Tricia actually accusing Victoria of hitting on ‘Carter’.
Sharon tells him that she has always had a bad feeling about Tricia and it is
not going away. Nick is sure that Victoria will play it smart. Cody comes up and
asks if anyone has seen ‘Carter’. No one has. Sharon thinks that maybe
Tricia has something to do with ‘Carter’ being late for work. Nick kisses
Sharon good-bye and leaves. Sharon can't fight this feeling that she has.
John, Jill and Jack are discussing business when Brad and Ashley walk in and
surprise them with her arrival. Jill is glad to see Ashley back and they get
down to business. She wanted to return because she wanted to give some feedback.
She has some issues on the way that they have been handling things. They others
look at each other uncomfortably. She wonders if they are really working as hard
as they can. She wants to really use the kids. The winner should get to spend
the holidays with at the ‘Glow by Jabot’ house. All love the idea, even
Jill. She thinks that it brings dimension to the ideas that they had, but she
reminds them that there is one small problem.
Tricia and ‘Carter’ have finished making love and he tells her that he has
to go, but he wishes that he could stay there all day. He leaves the room. The
phone rings and Tricia walks over to it and touches it wondering if she should
answer it or not. It is Sharon calling with a very worried look on her face.
Mac watches as Brittany and Billy leave together. Raul and Rianna have left her
at the Coffeehouse. They asked her if she wanted to come with them, but she
doesn't want to.
Jill makes a phone call to get started on Ashley's idea of jump-starting the
campaign. Jill thinks again if Mac is going to be a part of the campaign. Jack
assures her that Mac will not be involved. She is concerned with the four kids
saying no to the ideas that they have.
Victor checks with Victoria to see if she knows that her mother left town. Ryan
calls Victoria over to get her to look at the Jabot site. They read about the
campaign that they are setting up over there. Victor realizes that the
competition is not over yet.
