Brooke: You'd like to believe that you have ammunition, but you don't. Neither does Taylor. That's what has you both so panicked. Your helpless to stop me. The more you rant and rave, the more encouraged I am.
Brooke: Uh-huh, wouldn't you be, if your worst enemy agreed with you in principle.
Stephanie: I don't agree with you about anything.
Brooke: You agree that Rick finds me irresistible. Otherwise you wouldn't be so upset. Here, take a look at this.
Stephanie: Oh, my God, what a fool.
Brooke: It isn't Ridge. It's a computer generated image, but you know what this proves, that you believe it's possible. Deep down you still think Ridge wants me. All I can say, Stephanie, is thank you. Thank you for the vote of confidence.
Amber: Hi. I'm supposed to be having lunch with my husband and I'm not sure if he's here yet.
Hostess: What's the name?
Amber: Rick Forrester.
Hostess: Yes, he is. Let me get a waitress to show you to your table.
Amber: What are you doing here?
Deacon: Coming for a little lunch.
Amber: You can't.
Deacon: Why not?
Amber: Because Rick and I are having lunch. It would be way too uncomfortable.
Deacon: It would be uncomfortable for Rick? You want me to go, I'll go. Before I do, let's be honest here. It's not Rick's feelings you're worried about, it's yours. Baby, we both know that you want me just as badly as I want you.
Amber: We're not going to talk about this right now.
Deacon: Not talking about it isn't going to make it go away.
Amber: Deacon, you're right. You're right, I don't want to talk about this. I don't even want to think about this. I'm a married woman, and I just want to have a nice lunch alone with my husband.
Deacon: Okay. All right.
Amber: What are you doing?
Deacon: I'm going to call Bridget and tell me -- tell her to meet me somewhere else for lunch.
Amber: You were meeting Bridget here? Whose idea was it to come here?
Deacon: It doesn't really matter. She's not answering the phone, which means she left already or -- she's here. We'll have a double date.
Rick: What are we going to do?
Bridget: Rick, you've got to talk to Mom.
Rick: I told you I'm not getting involved.
Bridget: I think you're the one person she'll listen to.
Rick: No, she won't. She won't. She'll tell me she has to be true to herself and follow what she believes in, which is the exact same thing I told her about Amber and me.
Bridget: This is totally different from you and Amber.
Rick: Yes, it is. You know, speaking of Amber, she should have been here by now.
Amber: Come here.
Deacon: What, what?
Amber: Call Bridget and tell her you got sick.
Deacon: That's the best you can do? Come on, that's ridiculous.
Amber: I don't know if I can handle this.
Deacon: We'll have a lifetime of birthdays and holidays. We can handle one little lunch, all right?
Amber: Okay. Okay. All right. Don't walk in with me, okay?
Deacon: Listen, you and me, we can do this.
Amber: So I hope you don't mind Deacon and me butting in on your lunch. I just needed to talk to Rick.
Bridget: It will be fine.
Amber: Hi, baby.
Rick: Hi, honey.
Bridget: Amber. Pleasant surprise.
Didn't I tell you they would come?
No, it's cool.
You guys ordered yet.
No, no, but I'll get you guys a couple of margaritas.
Bridget: I told Rick to get yours blended.
Amber: Don't worry about it.
Deacon: We'll get you another one.
Bridget: What are you trying to do, get me liquored up here?
Deacon: That way I can take advantage of you here.
Rick: I'm trying to eat here.
Bridget: Not your baby sister anymore, am I?
Rick: Some things never change.
Bridget: Yeah, like Mom.
Rick: That's why Bridget wanted to talk to me. Turns out Mom is after Ridge again.
Deacon: No way.
Rick: Yeah, yeah. I guess that little speech he gave you on soulmates had more impact on her than him.
Bridget: How embarrassing, you know, it's like telling people my mom believes in mermaids. Is there such a thing as a soulmate? I wish Mom would give up on this quest for Ridge, otherwise she's in for a world of hurt.
Amber: She thinks she can get Ridge back.
Bridget: He's married.
Rick: This is totally different. Ridge has kids now.
Amber: I know, I know. I just -- I see the way he looks at her sometimes. The way he touches her. The way he laughs at her jokes even though they're not funny.
Rick: He laughs at her jokes, what, now they're destined to be together?
Amber: That's not what I'm saying.
Rick: What exactly is your point? What are you saying, Amber?
Stephanie: I mean, look at the way you're dressed. The way you flaunt yourself. But Brooke, really, at your age to confuse lust for love? Come on.
Brooke: Oh, that's right. In the world according to Stephanie, the only thing Ridge feels for me is lust.
Brooke: Tell me something, Stephanie, am I really that much more attractive than all of the models traipsing through Ridge's office every single day? He certainly doesn't have a problem resisting their advances. Come on, admit it, what Ridge and I share goes deeper than lust.
Stephanie: And this justifies your actions?
Brooke: Why should I justify my actions?
Stephanie: You've never earned it.
Brooke: I have earned it. Look at what I've done to this company. Forester is stronger than ever.
Stephanie: Right, since you decided to go in the business of selling sex.
Brooke: I am not selling sex. I am selling an image here, this image, romance and passion. Everything that Ridge and I personify. The public is eating it up.
Stephanie: They're probably the same people that eat up at trough of pornography.
Brooke: Why am I trying to justify myself to you?
Stephanie: Ridge is happily married. He has a wonderful wife and children. You want to destroy that. Can justify your actions up the ying-yang, but it's still wrong.
Brooke: You'll never understand what I'm going, you know why? Because it has to do with following your heart, Stephanie, and you never followed yours.
Stephanie: Brooke, please, Ridge is happy with his children and Taylor.
Brooke: Good, then you have nothing to worry about, neither should Taylor I don't blame Taylor from trying to protect her family. She has a pleasant life and a nice existence, but I don't think pleasant is going to cut it with a man like Ridge. I'm just trying to get everybody to see the truth here, to look at the reality. This is best for everybody, including the children.
Stephanie: Including the children? The children are better off if their father leaves their mother for some money-grubbing slut?
Brooke: What's so funny about that?
Stephanie: Oh, gosh, I can't believe this. I used to let that really hurt me, that insult and digs and that disgust in your voice. I gave you so much power. You know what, that just proves that you're actually -- if you have to resort to using words like that, ugly words --
Brooke: I'm very sad for you.
Deacon: I don't think anybody said anything about destiny. Amber's trying to point out that the attraction between Ridge and your mom is just one-sided. He does feel it, too.
Rick: So that makes it all right for someone to break up a marriage?
No. Once a man has made a commitment you've got to stick by it.
Amber: Cut your mom a little slack. She can't help the way she feels.
She can help what she does about it, she can show self-control.
That's what it's all about, willpower.
Bridget: I'm not saying I agree with what Mom's doing, all right? But from her point of view, she's tried to control her feelings. She tried moving on with James and Conner and Grant and Thorne and it didn't work. What's she supposed to do?
Why she should keep trying when the love of her life is standing right in front of her.
I don't see how any good can come out of hurting innocent people, this whole idea that two people can be made for each other, it's just bogus.
Waitress: Here are your margaritas.
Oh, good. On the rocks, no salt. And blended.
Do me a favor, why don't you bring me one like hers.
Waitress: No problem. You guys ready to order.
I think so. I'll have the chicken taco.
How about you?
I'll have the fajitas.
That sounds good, I'll have the fajitas, too.
Waitress: Steak or chicken?
Waitress: Mild or spicy?
Bring it on, baby.
Waitress: Tortillas okay?
Can I have corn, please.
I thought Deacon was the only one who liked corn.
Can I get a side of guacamole?
Waitress: Sure, what about you?
No, no, I'll pass.
Karks, a really big bowl of guacamole.
Waitress: Coming right up.
Stephanie: Coming from a woman who surrounded herself with computer generated fantasies.
Brooke: These aren't for my personal pleasure, this is business.
Brooke: Yes. It's an ad campaign for Brooke's Bedroom.
Stephanie: You're not going to take this filth public.
Brooke: Yeah, that was my plan.
Stephanie: I won't allow it.
Stephanie: I mean it, I will not allow to you humiliate this company, my son or my daughter-in-law. I'll sue you.
Brooke: Ridge already said no. Calm down.
Stephanie: Thank God he still got some sense, because this is disgusting.
Brooke: Actually, he was kind of amused. He was just worried about Taylor.
Stephanie: Does that surprise you?
Brooke: No, he should be worried. She was practically on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
Stephanie: Because of you.
Brooke: Because of her own insecurities.
Stephanie: Her own insecurities? Look at this place. It's like a bordello. Look at you, half naked in those pictures, you and Ridge all over each other. Why wouldn't a woman be insecure?
Brooke: If Ridge was happy with her.
Stephanie: Oh, here it is, here it is, the famous excuse. Brooke's golden rule about marriage. If a man isn't utterly, blissfully in a state of ecstasy every day of his marriage, she will rescue him. Right? Isn't that what you do? Eric and Stephanie weren't happy. Thorne and Macy weren't utterly blissful. Here we go, Ridge and Taylor, again, aren't happy. Not everybody is happy in a state of bliss every single moment of their lives in a marriage. In real life, marriages, even good ones, have problems.
Brooke: I know all good marriages have problems. And in my case, you were the cause of my problems. You were the one trying to rescue Ridge, Eric and Thorne. And if you think that's what I am trying to do right now, I learned that from you. You have nobody to blame but yourself.
Stephanie: I'm the reason you're chasing after Ridge?
Brooke: No, you're the reason why I'm so good at it. So give yourself a hand, Stephanie, because you're the one who taught me, that a winner any contest goes for it, no-holds-barred.
Stephanie: And winning is all that matters? What about right and wrong.
Brooke: Gosh, we're not going to get into what's right and wrong.
Stephanie: If we did, you wouldn't have a leg to stand on.
Brooke: Because I have no respect for your morals, none. When it comes to getting down and dirty, you're the master. So I must say, I did learn from the best. But there comes a day, Stephanie when the student steps up to the challenge and wins. I must say, that day is here. The queen is dead. Long live the queen. Ha ha.
Oh, man this is so good. You want a bite of this?
No, thank you. No, no.
Rick: Honey, you want some.
Amber: I'm surprised you still have taste buds.
You guys, what are we going to do with the extra margarita?
Hand it this way.
You sure about that?
You can drive me home.
Rick: You might have to quit drinking for a while anyway.
Rick: Yeah, why. You know, for when you get pregnant, which I hope is sooner than later.
Wait a minute. Pregnant?
Massimo: Stephanie, Stephanie, are you all right?
Stephanie: What are you doing here?
Massimo: I hope it's a pleasant surprise.
Stephanie: Of course. I'm always so happy to see you. How are you? How are you?
Massimo: Very well, very well. Thank you.
Stephanie: You look wonderful.
Massimo: Well, let's just say that the years have been very kind to both of us. Would you like to have some water?
Stephanie: Thank you.
Massimo: Okay. Did your husband tell you I was here in town?
Stephanie: No, Eric didn't say, but I've been gone away on vacation. I was with Pam.
Massimo: If you don't mind my saying so, you look as if you could use another one.
Stephanie: Yeah, I think I've come back to a rather difficult situation.
Massimo: Brooke Logan.
Stephanie: How did you know?
Massimo: I was here the other day looking for you, as a matter of fact, and I witnessed -- how can I put it -- an incident between Brooke and your daughter-in-law.
Stephanie: Taylor doesn't deserve this.
Massimo: None of you do.
Stephanie: I don't suppose you remember a long time ago the very first time I told you about Brooke.
Massimo: Yeah, I think that was the time she moved into your home at Ridge's invitation.
Stephanie: Exactly. I didn't pay attention. I thought she was a little fly I could swat away. She's turned out to be indestructible like a cockroach.
Massimo: No one is indestructible, Stephanie. You simply have to know how to reach them.
Stephanie: I know where I'd like to reach her. I'd like to put my hands around her neck and ring it. I'm not sure she might not be right this time though.
Massimo: Oh, come now.
Stephanie: You know, she's just -- she's turned this company into a bordello. She's made a mockery of it. I could accept that if I thought she was right, but now she's going after my grandchildren. I've fought her so long and so hard, I don't know if I have the strength to continue the fight. I don't know what the hell I'm going to do.
Massimo: Listen to me. I don't want you to worry about this. Everything is going to be fine. All right? Trust me.
