(in charge of the Jabot Men's line) and calls Nina to share the good news. Nina, why don't you call Ryan for a celebration. JUST TRY!......Victor tells Ryan about the promotion and Ryan is overwhelmed. There's one more thing Ryan, now that you are VP and report directly to me, call me Victor.....Nina does call Ryan and he agrees to a dinner celebration with Nina and Phillip. A little later, Tricia arrives to congratulate Ryan on the promotion (how she knows??). She gives him her phone number and they suck face.

Katherine visits Hope and tells her of Kurt's return. Hope visits the future clinic site where Kurt is 'sweeping up' (kinda silly as when there is so much renovation work to do, sweeping would be one of the *last* things, IMO). Hope wants to be the first to volunteer. I know that no one would want me giving them injections or anything like that, but I can answer the phone and with the right computer fill out insurance forms, etc. Kurt accepts gladly and they embrace.
Victoria tells Cole she wants to move to NY. She was called by a woman there about a job. Victor summons Victoria. Victoria hands Victor her letter of resignation. Victor hands Victoria a memo which says that Victoria is returning to head up Brash & Sassy. After some more Victoria whining, she accepts the job.
Ryan, Nina and Phillip have a very boring (and sad) celebration. Ryan asks Nina to take Phillip home, he is meeting other people. Ryan calls Tricia who arrives later all smiles and with a gift for Ryan.
Hope calls Kurt, I'm on my way over to help you Kurt. Ashley arrives moments later with a work crew for Kurt. She takes Kurt away to look at office equipment and furniture. Hope arrives and no Kurt. Kurt and Ashley having coffee; he suddenly remembers Hope and Ashley gets in a snit. Go ahead and go, Hope needs her daily kiss. Kurt smiles to himself.
Nick is whining to Nikki about what to do. Sharon calls, has some great news, don't leave. She arrives to tell Nick that he can graduate the University by September if he takes accelerated and night courses. Nick is so pumped! Suck face.
Sasha is addressing a large envelope to Danny. Could it be the manuscript? .......... Meanwhile, the stilted dinner party continues. Phyllis goes to the 'powder room' to get a grip and Chris interrupts her pep talk to herself. Phyllis tells Chris that her distraction is due to the fact that she is so happy about trying for another baby with Danny.
Dru and Neil discuss/argue about having another baby. Neil wants it now, Dru wants to wait. Dru tells Malcolm about it later and Olivia just happens to visit Neil and he spills his frustrations to her. Dru returns and overhears the conversation (at their apt.) but doesn't interrupt. Later, she confronts Liv about it, questioning whether Liv wants Dru's marriage to fail so that she can have Neil.
Sharon discusses Grace and her not visiting much with Nikki while Tony and Grace talk about the same thing and what to do with Cassie.
Phyllis is warping about how to get the $30,000. She calls her mother, the answer is no. The envelope is delivered for Danny (the one from Sasha). Phyllis ignores it at first, then suspects it's from Sasha and opens it. She begins grabbing things to pawn and does so and gets $7,000. She takes a camera to another place. Sorry lady, all I can give you is $50. Phyllis inquires about a photographer who might want an uninhibited model. I need a lot of cash FAST! Malcolm just happens to enter the store to overhear this conversation.
