    Leslie drops in on a busy Neil at Jabot. She tells him she can't sign the contract due to their past dating. Leslie admits she's still wondering what might have happened between them in her hotel suite if he hadn't been such a gentleman. She's worried about being inappropriate. Neil says if they're tempted to date, he'll fire her first.

    Fen gives Lauren attitude at Crimson Lights and gets reprimanded by Michael. Lauren says they've noticed a change in him and it's not for the better - since he started hanging out with Summer. They bicker and Fen takes off. Lauren quips, "So much for bonding over breakfast." They talk about raising kids and Fen having a thing for Summer. Nearby, Devon and Lily dish about Neil running Jabot. Jamie arrives and Michael invites him over for dinner to meet Fen. Jamie says he knows him and they don't get along. Lauren thinks he seems intimidated, and decides to try again after Michael leaves. Fen returns and mocks them for being 'buds' now. Fen tells Jamie he's welcome to his life. Lauren angrily drags Fen away and asks if he's jealous because that's how he's acting. She hopes Fen will be a positive influence on Jamie. Fen goes and apologizes to Jamie for being a jerk. They get to talking about parents and Summer.

    Phyllis arrives at the tackhouse after learning Summer's cut school for three days and Nick didn't call her. She warns him about leaving her out of the loop. Nick doesn't know where Summer is or where she's been hanging out.

    In a storage unit, Summer pulls a trophy belonging to Avery Summers out of a box. She takes a call from Nick and Phyllis and says she's fine. They insist she come back and get driven to school.

    At the tackhouse, Phyllis commends Nick on handling Summer, but they start bickering again. Summer arrives and says this is her problem - this family is too broken to fix. Phyllis confronts her about lying that everything was okay. Summer hugs Nick and apologizes. Phyllis tells her to stop manipulating. Noah arrives. Phyllis asks for time alone with Summer. Nick and Noah leave. Phyllis explains to Summer why she left home and says she has it so much better. Phyllis says she sees the same desire to leave in her - it scares her. Summer admits she wants to go somewhere and start a new life. Phyllis warns her issues may follow her and says she'll only end up hurting herself or others. Phyllis says the anger has to stop. Summer cries that she's mad because of what she did because it ruined their family. Summer knows she talks big, but says she could never leave - she'd miss them too much. Phyllis hugs her.

    Nick and Noah are at the abandoned nightclub. Nick says he's considering buying it. Noah begins imagining design features. Nick guesses he likes the idea and says he's warming up to it too. Noah wants to be partners. Nick isn't sure about that. Noah says he can tend bar. Nick smiles.

    Lily enters Neil's office where he's laughing with Leslie and welcoming her to Jabot. Later, Neil emerges from a meeting with Devon, who hated being in there surrounded by pinstripes - he thinks Jabot should be a hip, creative environment and suggests they start with casual Fridays. He tells Neil to loosen up - the attitudes could use some adjusting around there. Neil says he's lucky he's family.

    Leslie and Lily talk over lunch at the restaurant. They laugh about Neil being uptight when he puts on a suit. Devon joins them and they all talk about Neil needing to loosen up.

    Nick returns to the tackhouse and is happy to learn Phyllis made progress with Summer. Phyllis says she went to school. They talk about Noah and Phyllis mentions seeing Sharon there at Thanksgiving. When she's gone, Nick confronts Noah.

    Summer comes into the coffee house and Jamie goes. Summer asks Fen why he's hanging out with him. He says he's following her lead.

    I wonder if Nick will be Sharon's new touchstone.

    WOW! Leslie thinks Neil was a gentleman. Girl, I hope someone tells you that he had sex with Sophia, his brother's wife, resulting in baby Moses.

    Summer and Fen = TROUBLE!

    Two bullies doing the same thing. I hope Summer has enough sense never to go that route with sweet Jamie who didn't deserve what they did. One day, he WILL find out about them. Paul had better hurry and come back to GC and take a look at both their computers and phones. Too bad their parents are not so smart.

    Devon has some nerve. A newbie at Newman and he thinks anyone is going to listen to his not so brilliant ideas. He isn't even dry behind the ears yet. Neil's influence on the boy dressed like a man isn't going to sit well with old Jackie Boy.

    As I remember, Summer went to Aunt Avery and loved every minute with her. She even wished Avery was her mother instead of Phyllis. Take that, Phyllis!

    Phyllis, just SHUT UP! You don't have a clue. If you did, you could be on The Wheel of Fortune. LOL

    For those of you who asked where EDEN has been: She'll be here on Wednesday. Good for her! How does she know that Kyle has the hots for Phyllis, the woman he HATED?

    Ahhh, pooe Hilda, she is just finding out her daughter has missed three days of school. Must have been lying on her back the first two days and nobody could get in contact with her. Tisk, tisk.

    Hey Hildie, you know the same reason Summer ran away from you is the same reason you ran off from home. You are just like your lying father.

    Well, looks like at least another couple of days will be totally eaten up by Summer and Noah hogging all of the available air time on the New Summer-and-Noah-Newman Air Hogs Show! If you are not in a scene with Summer and/or Noah, then you need to be in a scene TALKING about Summer and/or Noah - or you will not have any air time whatsoever! And, after a couple of smiles, poor Kyle will now join the rest of the poor saps who are willing to throw away their entire lives, just for an occasional smile from Phyllis? That makes even less sense than the story about Ronan being willing to dump his entire career into the nearest dumpster - just so Phyllis will consider him some sort of hero - and go crying on his shoulder! And the sudden references about JACK being the one who delivered Summer in the elevator do NOT sound to me like that could lead to anything good for Jack! On Hollywood Heights, the kid who is New Noah and the girl who is New Summer were a romantic duo. I would personally not put it past JFP to be planning to turn Summer and Noah into the "new" Y&R super couple. If JFP re-writes history - and everyone suddenly discovers that Summer is the daughter of Phyllis and JACK - then I could see "poor, little, ole" Summer running to FORMER "big brother" Noah for comfort. And then the kids hitting the sheets together - Naturally! Of course, Summer will not be any more civil to Jack - nor have any more scenes with him - than she has right now - so it will most likely NOT do JACK any good if it is suddenly revealed that Jack is Summer's father! About the only thing most likely to happen in that event is that, in a couple of years, when Y&R is circling the drain for the final time, and getting ready to join all of the rest of the axed soaps in cancellation land, TIIC will stand around, scratching their heads, trying to figure out how come NONE of the old long-time viewers are tuning in for the Y&R finale - so they can all learn whether or not Summer and Noah will be able live happily ever after in spite of their disapproving families! Been there. Done that. Wasn't impressed the first couple of dozen times. Still NOT impressed! On OLTL, it was said that Kevin Buchanan never met a relative he didn't want to hop into bed with. I can see Noah Newman becoming the Kevin Buchanan of Y&R!

    Nick cant find anything else to do but buy a and ehat father would be proud to have such a loser for a son like Noah wgo will be reduced to bartending. Wow such high hopes for a Newman.

    Just put Faith on a milk carton already or jump her to 15 so she can annoy the viewers like fen and summer.

    Leslie may as well sign up for unemployment as soon as she signs that contract cuz Neil is gonna bang the heyull out of her dumbahs and soon.

    Wonder if the nuWriters know the back story on Phyllis's "criminal father"? If they do, why do they write lines like "my father was a criminal, he was SO UNETHICAL, I had to turn him in, I couldn't stay there? I LMAO when she said that, WHAT, compared to Phyllis's list of crimes her daddy was a saint! Yeah he was bad he stole money, well so did Phyllis, from Summer, then that line "our actions have consequences" REALLY? I guess Phyllis thinks it's ok to be the windshield and SPLAT a bug. I could swear she was just telling her kid Daniel he must keep his mouth shut about her crimes what if he would have followed her lead and turned her in? SMH if they wanted to make Phyllis's father look really bad they should have wrote a better back story on that, this just sounds stupid from her knowing what he did and what she's done.

    To her credit, she did shut her mouth and let Summer speak, I was shocked.

    Then she left and told Nick to let her know "if any thing comes up" lol

    Them Newman kids got it rough, Summer whines all the time, and pretty much does whatever the he11 she wants, poor Noah he can't access his trust fund until he's 25, oh the hardship of it all.

    Avery who was this tough top notch legal eagle has now turned into a giggling twit. like she chasing the high school quarter back.

    and the Winters family has BIG DRAMA in their lives, getting Neil to wear jeans.

    Good casting IMO on this Fen, since he slicked that hair back he looks like a mini Mikey with a hint of a chipmunk.

    This competition (what ever it is) between Cane and Devon is really gonna be intense now, Cane wasn't in this epi today, and Devon is already making an "impact" on Jabot, imagine how p**zed Cane is gong to be when he goes shows up at Jabot in a suit and everyone else is wearing jeans, even Neil.

    Someone was saying Y&R needs a stalked storyline, little bear will HAPPILY volunteer to stalk Billy!!

    .♥_| |__| |_ ♥

    I do not at all know why Nick thinks he's such a fabulous parent, he has no idea at all what is going on with either of his minor daughters because he's too busy sleeping with his sister-in-law!!

    Actually i am not minding the Summer/Fen/Jamie story at all!! Although i must be about the only one! I think bullying is an important issue, and have a very dear friend who's young daughter has suffered a lot thanks to bullies. Plus as i started following this show in part because of the range of teenagers and teenage storylines i am sure there actually are young people out there who will get involved in this show because of Summer and Fen and their storyline.

    I don't think i could manage to muster even a teeny tiny spark of interest in anything to do with Neil or Lily, they really are two VERY dull characters!!
