He tells them to get over this fantasy that the company will ever be theirs again. He rebukes Eric’s retort about building the company by saying that Caesar also built an empire and look how that turned out. He owns the company now and they work for him. Sternly he reminds them that he and Katie are in charge and the Forresters will do their job and do it well and collect their paychecks. If not, they can quit. He cuts Katie off every time she tries to talk and soothe things over. He adds insult to injury when he says their kind is a dime a dozen in this town and he’d be happy to replace them.

Things have changed from when she was growing up. She now is a back-stabbing egomaniac. Tempers flare and she too accuses Brooke for sleeping with her father and grandfather and she accuses Donna of disgusting things with the honey and Eric. She blames all of them for kicking her grandmother to the curb and that’s when they lost their moral center. She claims the Logans will not walk out and leave their rich husbands. But also do not blame Bill Spencer; just blame themselves. At the beach house, Katie confronts Bill. She got the silent treatment on the way home, but now she wants to talk. He starts on the same old same old of how her sisters threw her under the bus and he was trying to treat them like his family. They shout at each other. He wants to make it perfectly clear to Katie that he does not want to take anything back and wants nothing to do with any of those people outside of their working for him. And for her to stand there and defend them is like a knife in his back. She needs to shut up and listen. She needs to see them for who they really are and she is unwilling to do that. She rails at him that he can not call them tramps and think that is all right with her. She cries that they are her sisters and everything is not black and white. He says that gives them no right to walk all over her. Simply, the wanted the company so they were willing to sacrifice Katie in the process. They were willing to embarrass her in front of the entire world. Her blind devotion to those women is so frustrating to him. Katie grabs her coat and purse and says she is going for a drive. He commands her not to leave; do not walk out on him.
