Peter Bergman as Jack Abbott, Jr delivered the line of the show, one that too many seem to be worried about in real life
“These are the days that will define us”
Gina Tognoni’s quote within a long pitch offering her services as Chief Executive Officer of Jabot®️. Has Phyllis ever been a major CEO? As ex-husband Jack points out: No. However, with Ashley leaving such chaos at the company, Traci suggested that even though Phyllis had never held such a position, maybe it was time for a shake up.
Phyllis’s enthusiastic call to work –
“Put aside your fears and doubts and stop settling for the status quo!”
Enjoy the episode!
The Young and the Restless family company business episode summary
Many people are under the mistaken idea that people who develop alcohol problems are the ones show crazy and silly behavior.
It is a more likely case that those who fall into alcohol problems are those people for home alcohol works very well on today’s Young and the restless Nikki Newman had a talk with her grandson Reed Hellström recognizing that a she once used alcohol to her advantage to help her career as a dancer, Reed Hellström is using alcohol to his advantage as a shy person.
He has his first love, his parents are divorcing, he is a sensitive musician, from a powerful family and suffers from shyness. Surprise: alcohol, in the short-term, handles every one of those symptoms perfectly. In the long run, the Chinese aphorism rules: “First the person takes the drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes the person” – UNLESS one can have an empathetic wise grandmother, here played as usual to perfection by the fantastic Melody Thomas Scott with newcomer Tristan Lake Leabu as Reed.
The return of Thad Luckinbill as Jeffrey Todd (J.T.) Hellstrom has been a spark for the storyline. This American actor is *far* more experienced, believable, likable yet powerful as compared to when he left the show to take other roles. He’ll leave again, return again. The timing? Who knows?! That is the beauty of a DAILY daytime drama.
Today the show was down-to-earth. “The alcoholic is *not* someone who cannot control their drinking – the alcoholic is someone who *must* control their drinking.” – STANLEY GITLOW, M.D., addiction expert
The phrase “my favorite mistake” in American English simply means- “I failed in an endeavor. However, by failing I was freed up and a much better situation presented itself. ”
Sheryl Crow’s My Favorite Mistake is a brilliant lyric on its own. It reads as well as a poem as a song. Good fun drama.
The song is fantastic, as the bass line sounds like classic Rolling Stones or Tho Who or The Pretenders. That said, the lyric in the song,
Young and the Restless has gotten crisp and brilliant. The writing has improved so much over the past 12 years I stand and applaud adjusting to social situations of extreme sensitivity with equanimity.
“Don’t you know when you go
It’s the perfect ending,
To the bad day,
I’d gotten used to spending.
Don’t you know,
When you go you’re my favorite mistake.”
That high level of sardonic conversation was reflected perfectly as character Jack Abbott and Nikki Newman on season 46, episode 74.
