Ashley was sitting by the Abbott pool, splashing the water, when Cole rejoined her. Ashley couldn't get Cole back in the mood again. Cole did not like Ashley being involved with Jack's deal to get Jabot. Cole got even nastier when Ashley said she was going to New York the next day. Cole finally offered to go to New York, too, but Ashley told him she'd be tied up all the time. Cole claimed it didn't matter; they kissed.
Kay was talking to someone on the phone, hoping that they knew where to locate Brock, but they hadn't heard from him since 1992. Birdie walked in and told Kay she couldn't believe that she was the grandmother Mac had been looking for. Birdie went on to tell Kay how much she missed her daughter. Esther trotted in to find out if Jill had called from the hospital yet. Meanwhile, Jill rushed into the emergency room and demanded to see Billy, immediately.
Back at the mansion, Kay tried to get details out of Esther and found out a concert was somehow involved. Kay dashed out to the hospital. Billy was okay, and Jill was relieved and thankful. Billy wanted to wait and see if the others were okay also. Raul was all right, too. Kay walked in and Jill wondered why she was there. Mac walked out, and she was okay too. Jill was shocked she had been with Billy.
Kay and Mac arrived back at the mansion, and Mac told Kay it hadn't been Billy's fault. Kay was getting a little too pushy, so Birdie changed the subject and asked Mac if she had enjoyed the concert. Birdie and Kay were both tired and turn in. Jill and Billy returned home, and Jill asked why Mac had been with Billy. Jill did not want Billy hanging out with Mac. Billy told Jill they didn't get along anyway, and never would, but Mac was not a bad person. Jill commented that Mac was not their kind of person. Jill went up to bed, still not knowing that the concert had been in Chicago.
Billy apologized to Mac about the accident. Billy asked if Mac had told Kay where the concert had been, and Mac said yes. Mac told Billy the next time they should just hitchhike, then she left. Billy thought to himself he would be hitchhiking everywhere if Jill found out.
Mamie was watching Nate when Olivia returned home. It was past Nate's bedtime and Olivia hustled him off to bed. Mamie could tell something was wrong with Olivia. Mamie couldn't believe Malcolm could think Dr. Olivia would ever think of cheating on him. Olivia told Mamie she still had deep feelings for Malcolm. Olivia claimed she had put her feelings for Neil behind her, but Mamie looked skeptical.
Callie was at the apartment when Malcolm arrived at home. Malcolm told her he had learned Olivia's version of the story. Malcolm didn't know what to believe. Callie pushed for an answer about where they stood. Callie and Malcolm argued. Callie asked Malcolm if the two of them as a couple was just about his trying to get back at Olivia. Callie asked what would become of her, since Malcolm didn't need her anymore.
Nick was telling Sharon he was thinking of buying Crimson Lights. Nick needed to check out if it was a sound business first. Nick was kind of excited at the idea of bringing something back to life. It would give him a sense of accomplishment. Nick told Sharon he'd need her help if he did buy the coffeehouse.
In the Newman living room Victor and Nikki were dancing when Nikki asked Victor what he would think of having another baby. Victor asked if she was serious. He pointed out that the children were grown, and he and Nikki had time to themselves. Nikki gushed about how it would be different this time around. Victor couldn't believe Nikki had forgotten the latest vasectomy -- after all it had been her idea.
Vicki returned home, and Nikki was the only one in the living room. Vicki told her mother about running into Cole. Vicki wondered how she could get over Cole. Nikki advised her daughter to no keep pining away after one man -- there were a million fish in the sea. Vicki wasn't so sure. She knew she needed to get over Cole, but she was not looking for a replacement. Victor returned and Vicki tried to escape upstairs. Victor got snotty about not needing their advice about running Newman Enterprises.
Nikki told Victor it was a crazy idea about having another baby. But wistfully added, "If only there were a chance."
At Roberts Reproductive Labs, the video Hot Hips was given to some man along with a plastic cup. The phone rang. The lab tech checked some of the specimens, and the camera panned down the stack of samples. Specimen number 4251 was labeled "Victor Newman."
Nick showed Sharon the papers that he had worked up on Crimson Lights. It was a very detailed account of the business' value, with a profit and loss statement, and his offer to buy the business. He said that it might not be very important in the normal scheme of business dealings, like Newman Enterprises, but he felt very proud to be doing it on his own. He also said that he liked the idea of saving the place where they had met and where they had spent so many happy hours. Sharon was proud of him and wanted to help in any way that she could. Nick laid the papers on the desk by the phone and went off to breakfast with his family.
Victoria had a talk with Victor about her plans for Brash and Sassy, telling him of Ryan's idea for her to be the spokesperson for the company. Victor thought it was an excellent idea; no one could represent the company like his smart, beautiful, and successful daughter. She wasn't so sure, saying that he was prejudiced, but he said when it involved business, he was never biased. He wondered what Brad would think of her being the spokesperson. She wondered why he would even ask that.
He informed her that Brad would be heavily involved with Brash and Sassy. "Over my dead body!" Victoria told her father. She tried to talk him out of it, but he was adamant that Brad would be involved. She wanted Brad to be involved from a distance, just someone to run the numbers by and such, but Victor thought Bradley should be more involved than that. However, he said that he would talk to Nick and Ryan before mentioning it to Bradley.
Callie woke from her sleep on the couch just as Malcolm walked down, dressed for work. She asked him if he had made a decision, and he said no. She wanted to know where she stood, and he told her that he didn't know that either. She reminded him that she had put her love for him on the line when she made him see the truth. He reminded her that he had told her in the beginning that he had been in no condition to make a permanent decision about her or his marriage. Later, when she went to work, she was surprised to see Gina there enjoying a cappuccino. She poured her heart out to Gina, who didn't have an answer for her.
Victor went to Nick's house to tell him the plans he and Vicki had for Brash and Sassy. He wanted to know if Nick would support his sister, and Nick said that he would do whatever he could to help. Victor noticed the papers on the desk and asked if that was business. Nick replied that it was a project he was working on, a company he was thinking of buying. He said that he was thinking of buying Crimson Lights.
Victor said that it wasn't the kind of business Newman Enterprises was interested in, but Nick said it would be a private business. Victor said that Nick would have no time for any side projects; he would be kept too busy with Brash and Sassy. Victor left, and Sharon said that it had been a nice dream while it lasted. Nick told her that his vision and his father's vision weren't the same. The buy was still on as far as he was concerned.
Grace went to Jack, telling him that she had been hearing some rumors around the company that he was leaving. Jack told her that he was planning on buying Jabot back from Newman Enterprises and resigning from his present job. She mentioned that it would leave her out in the cold again, but he told her that she was wrong. He was planning on taking her with him. She was surprised, but Jack said that she was an intelligent, hard worker and would be an asset to him. He said that he couldn't promise much right away, but he could promise her a ride that she would never forget. When she agreed to go along with him, he told her to keep it under her hat for the moment. As she was leaving, Michael walked in.
Malcolm went to the gym, where he saw Neil working out. Malcolm apologized to his brother for thinking the worst of Neil and Olivia. Neil was very cold and replied that it would take a lot of time for him to get over the insult. When Malcolm tried to justify his way of thinking, Neil accused him of listening to Callie, who had filled his head with poison.
Malcolm said not to talk about Callie; she had put her life with him on the line. Neil said that Callie had been lurking on the sidelines, just waiting for a chance to grab him. Neil insisted that if Malcolm had any sense at all, he would abandon Callie and run back to the best woman God had ever made. Malcolm said that his brother and his wife might not have lit a fire, but there sure was a lot of smoke.
Katherine went to Paul's office and asked him to search for her son, Brock. She told him the story of her granddaughter, a child that Brock didn't even know about. Paul promised to find her son for her.
Back at the estate, Jill was ready for work when a bruised Billy went down and prepared to leave. When she called him back, he accused her of taking his driving privileges away from him due to the accident of the night before. On the contrary, Jill informed him, she thought it was a good idea that he get back behind the wheel as soon as possible. It was the same as being thrown from a horse then getting right back on. However, she warned him that he should get more practice before he let anyone ride with him again. She also warned him about any friendship he might be cultivating with Mac. Billy told her not to worry; he and Mac could hardly stand each other.
After Billy left for the coffeehouse, Kay returned home from Paul's office. Jill told Kay of her conversation with Billy, and Kay thought Jill had given him some good advice. Jill said that she had told him not to be friends with Mac. Kay wondered how Jill could blame Mac for the accident, and insisted that accidents happened. Jill made some remark about Billy and Mac being just across town, and Kay informed her that they had been at a concert in Chicago, not Genoa City.
Michael also told Jack that he had heard rumors of a split between Jack and Brad. He wanted to know what was going on, as his future was riding on what happened at Newman Enterprises. Jack replied that what he did was none of Michael's business. He said that no matter what happened, Michael would land on his feet. However, Michael threatened Jack, saying that only three people knew how the takeover had been accomplished, and he was one of those three. He warned Jack not to screw with him because he knew where the bodies were buried.
