He asked her what happened and she explained that Tucker managed to get Ashley to side with him on not having Abby at all at the wedding. While they talked, Diane showed up, ready to run her mouth about the latest regarding Victor. Before she could, though, she saw Abby, who taunted her to spill her guts as to why she was there wanting to see her uncle.
Michael met Phyllis to break the news that he would no longer be representing her in her desire to have custody of Lucy. Phyllis insisted that Michael stay on as her attorney but soon picked up on the fact that Victor steam-rolled him. Michael pointed out that Daniel doesn't want to take care of Lucy, but Phyllis barked that he does want to be a father to the little girl. Unfortunately for Phyllis, Michael pointed out that he knew the real reason why she's pressuring Daniel to fight for the baby; she wanted to make up for the lost time she had when Daniel wasn't with her as a baby. He told her that she would only hurt Daniel, as well as everyone else in the long run with her need to have Lucy. When the two friends hit a road block in the conversation, Michael left, to which Nikki witnessed. When questioned on what was going on, Phyllis lashes out that once again people bow to Victor to do as he wants when he snaps his fingers.
Diane lied to Jack saying that she was there to talk to him about Kyle. When he picked up on her excuse just as a ploy to get him to listen to her whine about all the things wrong in her marriage to Victor, she admitted that she thought it would be enough when she obtained the status of being his wife.

However, Phyllis, who was on the phone with Leslie Michaelson, told Jack, who overheard her conversation, that Billy better be warned that she's not giving up on getting Lucy. Jack explained to her that despite what she believed, she would be fighting the battle alone; not a Newman nor an Abbott would ever agree or side with her.
Abby and Daniel ran into one another and she immediately started to complain about the latest regarding Tucker McCall. Daniel thought she was just being over-dramatic and told her that while she was worried about having to deal with a new step-father, he had pressing issues of his own. Abby instantly took offense to his words and huffed off.
