Kyle is surprised and says maybe it’s a blessing.
Summer laughs ironically and says that it’s Adam’s baby.
Kyle is stunned, and Summer says that her dad is staying with Sally even though it’s Adam’s baby.
Summer says that she thinks that Sally just wanted to see her squirm and enjoyed every second of telling her about it.
Kyle says that he’s sure that Sally didn’t tell her just to see her squirm.
Summer asks if he just defended Sally to her.
Kyle says that the important thing is the baby in this scenario.
Summer snarkily says that Kyle must be naive if he thinks that Sally’s not using the pregnancy against her dad.
Sally and Nick are sitting at a table together in the restaurant, and Sally tells Nick that she told Summer about everything yesterday.
She says she thought it would be a good conversation, but Summer accused her of causing chaos wherever she went. She says that Summer’s not wrong on that front, the whole situation is a mess.
Sally says she’s a different person and says that she wishes she could take back her past actions, like when she stole Summer’s job.
Nick says Summer needs to accept that they’re together and asks if she wants him to come with her to the doctor.

Kyle heads back to work, saying a quick goodbye to Nick on the way out.
Nick comes in and Summer gets defensive right away.
Summer says that she’s concerned for him, that Sally is using him.

Adam comes down to Crimson Lights, and Sharon asks how he is.
He says he’s fine, but Sharon says she knows he’s not fine from the sound of his voice.

Sharon says that she’s just being friendly and that if he wants a coffee, there are plenty of coffee shops in Genoa City.
He laughs and says he hasn’t seen any other coffee shops.
Sharon says that running into Billy at Chelsea’s was probably the cause of his foul mood.
Adam says that he doesn’t think Billy’s good for Chelsea right now, and he’s talked to her about it, but he thinks that Sharon should talk to Chelsea instead, maybe she can get through to her.
Sharon says that he needs to stop focusing on other people and focus on his own life.
She says that Chelsea’s life is her own and that Adam running around ranting about Billy is just a distraction to himself.
Adam asks what he should be focusing on instead.
She says he should be thinking about his job.
Adam laughs ironically and at that moment, Kyle walks in.
Adam asks Kyle how things are at “the old salt mine”.
Kyle says that Jabot somehow continued to survive without Adam’s help.
They snipe at each other for a bit, and Adam says that Kyle was right to work to get him out of Jabot and that he did a great job for Victor.
Adam asks what reward Victor gave Kyle for forcing him out.
Kyle says that he will get coffee elsewhere, and leaves.
Sharon tells Adam that his fighting with Kyle is proof that he’s lost focus.

Chelsea says that he helped her, and she’s really happy that she was able to help him.
