She offers to tell him what’s going on if he buys her a drink.

He feels like she’s had plenty.

“Sometimes you just need to annihilate the darkness,” she says.

She had an epiphany that told her that trying to change is a waste of time.

phyllis says change is waste of time

He tells her that’s not true.

Pulling out her earrings, fake eyelashes and hair extensions, she thinks of how her kids teach her and she has no friends.

nick listens to phyllis vent

Nick looks baffled.

He assumes this is all about Danny.

She can’t even handle hearing the name.

The rockstar told her who he really wanted and it’s not her.

When she was humiliated, her first impulse was revenge. That’s her default.

She’s been trying to change but that’s obviously who she is so why should she try?

phyllis claims she can't change Y&R

Nick reminds her she can change. They’ve seen her do it.

Phyllis dismisses this and wants a drink.

He offers her all the junk food she wants instead.

She’d like room service junk food so no one can see her eating and she can change.

He agrees, helping her walk out.

Nick and Phyllis go up to a suite.

She wanders into the bathroom and he sits with her hair extensions before calling room service for burgers and mac and cheese.

Phyllis returns in a robe, happy to hear about all the carbs on the way.

She thanks him and says he can go.

He won’t let her have all the food herself.

She asks him to tell the kids about this. He agrees.

phyllis asks nick no judgement

When she gets herself a nightcap, he suggests she put it down and get whatever she has on her chest off.

He promises no judgment.

They sit together and she tells him about the night she planned with Danny.

Now he’s leaving town.

He showed up with Christine. “Ouch!” says Nick.

She felt like they had a chance this time and she was being rewarded for changing.

It was like fate was giving her a do-over.

nick and claire talk about her trying to change

He urges her to see this not as good vs bad but just Danny and Christine clicking.

Phyllis feels like she’s not enough. How can that be?

Nick assures her she will be enough for someone else. “Where are they?” she asks.

It’s weird talking about this with him.

phyllis cries about how hard it is Young & Restless

She’s been working so hard at being better. It’s difficult to be the person other people want her to be.

At the end of the day, she just feels alone and lonely.

She kisses him.

He backs her off.

They can’t go back to that and he needs to be a gentelman.

She offers him no strings.

They can just be lonely people in love and reminds him of Sally leaving him for Adam.

nick says no no no

That’s an instant cold shower for him.

The carbs arrive.

Phyllis knows he loves her just a little.

phyllis knows nick loves her

As they eat, he says they will always be woven into each other’s lives, both because of Summer and their amazing history.

He hopes she knows she can always count on him.

She loves talking to him but they could have done this in bed.

He thinks she would have regretted that. “No, I wouldn’t have,” she says.

Nick decides it’s time to go and she thanks him.

Showing him out, she kisses his cheek and thanks him again.
