Woman: I want to know why you have been ignoring my calls.
Scotty: I texted you and told you things were rough here. My mom and Michael are getting a divorce.” He tells the woman on the other line as he has a flash back in mind of the other night when he first arrived into town and he met Rafe at the gay bar. He comes back to reality. “Look I really can’t talk I’m helping my mom. “ He hangs up the phone.
Lauren, standing outside her son’s room wonder who was that on the phone and why is he lying to this person.
Episode 70: Phyllis is on FIRE!!
Written by ML Cooks and C. Nathaniel Richardson
Billy and Chloe lie in bed together with Chloe lying on Billy’s chest.
CHLOE: That was great.
BILLY (sarcastic): Yeah…very.
CHLOE: You don’t seem too enthused about it.
BILLY (sitting up): I hate hurting Victoria like this.
CHLOE: You can’t hurt her if she never finds out about it. You don’t have to tell anyone. I won’t.
BILLY: How can I be so sure?
CHLOE: Billy, I have to think about Delia. It would hurt her if I blabbed that we were sleeping together.
BILLY: You’re right.
Billy looks despondent and conflicted at this point and Chloe tries to comfort him.
CHLOE: I don’t know what to tell you Billy. For what it’s worth, I like being with you. It’s not like when we were in New York. We’re two different people now.
BILLY: Victoria‘s the love of my life.
CHLOE: Then why do you keep coming back to me?
BILLY: What do you mean?
CHLOE: You like women who are a little bit edgy and fun. You loved Mac, and Victoria, but they are not willing to take the risks that I am. You like that about me. I’m the only one who’s been able to give you a child.
BILLY: Edgy? Risky? I’ve destroyed my life with that behavior. I’m doing it again, and it makes me sick!

Keemo engulfs Gloria in a hug; He tells her this is exciting. Gloria says he seems more excited than her. Keemo says possibly.” It just feels good to make a name for myself in this city outside of my own family.”
Gloria: I made this business deal with you but yet I do not know your last name. How odd is that?”
Keemo: My last name. Hmm. I come from a prominent family. Let’s leave it like that. Discretion is a must.
Gloria: A prominent family? The only ones I know are the Newman and Abbotts.
Keemo: Seems you don’t know this town so well after all. Shall we cut the ribbon?”
Gloria: Most certainly.” Keemo hands her the scissors as they begin the count down. 3,2,1 Gloria cuts the ribbon and the rebuilding of Glo Worm commences. Keemo grabs Gloria and plants a passionate kiss on her.

Devon: I wanted to ask you about Abby.
Nate: Abby? I don’t understand. Why are you asking about her?
Devon: I don’t know if you guys are dating or what but-“
Nate: Wait hold up, you don’t know if we are dating? I do not understand what you are getting at or trying to find out but I don’t think it’s any of your business. Aren’t you with Roxanne?”
Devon: I am. And I love her very much. Roxanne has it in her head that Abby is after me. It’s been causing some serious tension for me and Roxanne. So I was going to ask could you take Abby’s mind off things.
Nate: I don’t like how this conversation is going. What is it with you and Roxanne and this obsession with Abby?
Devon: What do you mean Roxanne?
Nate: This is not the first time I heard this line. Roxanne wants me to date Abby for her benefit as well. It seems to me it’s you and Roxanne who need to date other people. “Nate gets up and leaves.
