Ridge: Thanks.

Taylor: I went to see Massimo last night.

Ridge: Why would you do that?

Taylor: He wasn't going to stop leaving messages.

Ridge: What is it with this guy?! Why won't he just leave me the hell alone? Hasn't he screwed up my life enough already? All right, so what did he want?

Taylor: He wants to see you.

Ridge: I hope you told him to just go straight to hell.

Taylor: Well, I told him to stay away, yes.

Ridge: If I ever see that creep again or even hear his voice -- oh, it still burns me up. I can't believe he's the one that's been coaching Rick all this time.

Taylor: Sweetheart, he's out of our lives. Would you just forget about him?

Ridge: Yeah.

Taylor: Hey, I was thinking of going to take a shower. You want to join me?

Ridge: Oh, sweetheart, I'll be up in a few minutes, okay? I want to try and do some work, at least give it a try.

Taylor: Okay, okay. When you're ready for a little inspiration -- I love you.

Ridge: Damn you, Marone. Damn you!


Massimo: If I remember correctly, cream and no sugar.

Stephanie: Yes, you do.

Massimo: So, how did you sleep?

Stephanie: Very well, thank you. And you?

Massimo: Better than I've slept in months.

[ Stephanie laughs ]

Stephanie: Oh, really? I mean, in spite of the fact that --

Massimo: Shh, shh, shh. I had no expectations, Stephanie.

Stephanie: Of course you did.

Massimo: No, no, no, no, no. Let's just say that my expectations were fulfilled, all right? I knew that you weren't ready to share a bed with me.

Stephanie: You're always so sweet with me.

Massimo: You are my queen.

Stephanie: Today is my wedding anniversary. And Eric has asked me to have dinner with him.

Massimo: Stephanie, I am not going to tell you what to do.

Stephanie: Oh, I know you wouldn't. But we made an agreement.

Massimo: Do you want me to reconsider it?

Stephanie: No, not if you're going to tell Ridge.

Massimo: You know, darling, you have lived with a man that you love for a number of years.

Stephanie: Mm-hmm.

Massimo: I have lived without the woman I love for just as long, even without my son. Do you have any idea the toll that has taken on me?

Stephanie: Yes, I do.

Massimo: We were robbed, Stephanie. We should have been married, raising our own children, and we would have if we had known the truth.

Stephanie: But that isn't Eric's fault.

Massimo: And you know, it wouldn't be our fault if we took back a few of those years that were stolen from us, hmm?

[ Phone rings ] oh, no. Excuse me. Hello.

Ridge: Your office, right now. Be there.

Massimo: Ridge wants to see me right away.

Stephanie: You're not going to forget your promise?

Massimo: No, I'm not -- as long as I have you.

Stephanie: You have me.


Taylor: Bridget?

Bridget: Hi. I've been meaning to drop this by. It's for Ridge.

Taylor: You brought him a present?

Bridget: Well, uh -- I heard about his hand.

Taylor: Come in. You're here to mend fences?

Bridget: Taylor, I feel terrible about what happened. So does Deacon.

Taylor: Oh, but he's too busy working at Ridge's company to stop by and apologize himself?

Bridget: Look, I really don't want to argue.

Taylor: No, no, of course not. You're hoping a gift with a little apology attached will make everything go away, but Bridget, it won't. Ridge may have very well have lost his career thanks to your husband, Deacon. Just like he lost his company thanks to Rick. And then of course, there's Massimo.

Bridget: Massimo?

Taylor: The brains behind Rick's ascension to power. You knew about that, didn't you?


Monique: Mr. Ridge Forrester is here to see you.

Massimo: Thank you, Monique. Send him in.

Monique: He's not in a very good mood.

Massimo: I didn't expect him to be.

Monique: Should I alert security?

Massimo: What would I need security for when I have you to protect me?

Monique: I'm not joking, Mr. Marone. The man looks dangerous.

Massimo: You are my first line of defense. I'll be all right.

Monique: You can come in, Mr. Forrester.

Massimo: Sit down, Ridge.

Ridge: No thanks. This won't take that long.

Massimo: We are going to talk, so sit down.

Ridge: I don't take orders from you. Do you understand?

Massimo: Just calm down and let me explain.

Ridge: Explain what, that you stabbed me in the back?

Massimo: I needed you out of that company.

Ridge: And I need you to get out of my life! So don't call anymore, and stay the hell away from my wife, okay?

Massimo: Did Taylor tell you about my offer?

Ridge: What, now you're making offers to my wife?

Massimo: No, no.

[ Massimo laughs ] it was for you. She was just to deliver it.

Ridge: Oh, I see. So she's your personal messenger girl, huh? And I'm your -- I don't know what the hell I am to you.

Massimo: You're someone I care very deeply for.

Ridge: You're sick.

Massimo: Hmm. Let me ask you a question, all right? Forget what I did. Forget my motives. But do you believe that you had a future at Forrester creations?

Ridge: That's not your concern.

Massimo: Ah, but it is.

Ridge: Why, Marone? Why? Why are you messing' with my life, anyway, huh?


[ Stephanie remembering ]

Massimo: I will keep quiet about being ridge's father as long as you're mine.

Thorne: Well, there's the lady. Mom, happy anniversary.

Stephanie: Thank you, darling. What a nice surprise. How are you?

Thorne: Good, good.

Eric: I'll take it from here, Thorne.

Thorne: I hope you're ready for a big evening, because this man has one planned for you. I'll -- I'll see you two later. Good-bye.

Stephanie: Take care, darling.

Thorne: Okay.

Eric: Good-bye. He is very, very excited, you know. But not as excited as I am. This is a great day for you and me, you know? An anniversary you and I will never forget.


Ridge: It was you who sent me those weird notes, huh? All the little gifts. What, were you warning me? Of what? Something you were concocting with Rick? Why would you do that, anyway? There's a lot you're not telling me, Marone. It keeps coming back to mother. I'm sure she's the key to this. I know she is.

Massimo: She is.

Ridge: So what's it going to take for you to get the message that she belongs with my dad? There's a lot more to this, isn't there? You knew she wouldn't be won over if you destroyed me.

Massimo: I didn't destroy you, ridge. In fact, I've made you stronger.

Ridge: You know, there's a certain truth to that, because I've never felt a stronger hatred than I do right now.

Massimo: Because you don't understand.

Ridge: Understand what, Marone?! What?! You just talk in circles!

Massimo: I know, I know, I know. But I can't tell you everything right now. I just cannot do it.

Ridge: What, do you have a lot more in store for me, huh? Is that what it is? It's not enough to ruin my career? God knows what you've got planned for me now.

Massimo: I would never do anything to hurt you -- never.

Ridge: And you won't hurt my family, either. If I catch you near my wife or my kids --

Massimo: I have no intentions of harming anyone that you love.

Ridge: Except dad.

Massimo: I wouldn't harm Eric, either. He's a victim like the rest of us.

Ridge: A victim of what, huh? Oh, I forgot. You can't tell me. I know you're a powerful man, Marone. But like you, I do not lose. You go one-on-one with me, I'll be all over you. So why don't you just stay away from me?

Massimo: I'm afraid I can't do that, Ridge.

Ridge: Then I'll bring you down. Is that how you want it? You like war, huh? War is so good. If it's so good, then I'll give you war. So what's it gonna be, Marone, hmm? You tell me. Do we part as enemies and stay clear of each other, or do we fight to the death? And I mean literally.


Eric: You know what? I was going to wait until later to give you this, but I want to see you open it now. Here.

Stephanie: What is it?

Eric: Something I picked up for you last night.

Stephanie: Oh, wow.

Eric: It's us. It's you and I -- two hearts intertwined, always. Now, I want you to -- I want you to put this on, and I want you to wear it every day to remind us of what we almost lost.

Stephanie: Eric -- I've made a decision that I need to tell you about. I've decided to move in with Massimo.


Ridge: I'm waiting. You either stay out of my affairs, or we go to the mat. What's it gonna be?

Massimo: All right, fine. I'll leave you alone if that's what you want.

Ridge: That is what I want.

Massimo: But if I were you, I'd wait before I make that decision.

Ridge: Wait for what?

Massimo: Life has a way of giving us what we need when we least expect it.

Ridge: Whatever the hell that means.

Massimo: It means that your world is about to take a big turn -- 180 degrees, Ridge. Come, I want to show you something.

Ridge: What is it with you, Marone?

Massimo: You'll know in a moment. And believe me, your life will never be the same.


Eric: You're moving in with Massimo?

Stephanie: Yes.

Eric: Why? Stephanie, when we talked last night --

Stephanie: I'm sorry.

Eric: I don't get it. I don't believe this. What is going on here? Is he forcing -- is he pressuring you into this?! Are you testing me?!

Stephanie: No. Eric, no one is forcing anyone, and I'm certainly not testing you. This is just something that I feel I should do.

Eric: But you were going to move back home tonight.

Stephanie: I didn't say that.

Eric: What changed?

Stephanie: Look, I just feel that if I come back home here, things are -- things are going to get worse than if I move in with Massimo. I mean, it's just -- it's just going to get worse -- far worse than you can possibly --

Eric: What are you talking about?! It's not going to get worse! It's going to get worse if you move in with him, not if you move home!

Stephanie: I realize that this is very difficult for you to understand, believe me. I just feel -- I just believe that it will be less destructive for ridge, for you, for everyone if I move in with Massimo.

Eric: What are you talking about? What are you saying? Oh, my god. I see. I see what this is. This is -- this is about you. This is about your feelings for him! You're as obsessed with Massimo as he is with you! I mean, this is just some stupid girlish fantasy, and you're going to act on it?! Well, if you want to move in with Massimo, you go on! You just go move in with Massimo! Go on, Stephanie! Get the hell out of here!


Massimo: Thank you, Monique. Is everything prepared?

Monique: Yes, sir.

Massimo: Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't formally introduce you to Tidge.

Ridge: You said you've got something to show me. Let's see it. Then we're done with each other permanently.

Massimo: This is a very special door, Ridge -- the door to the future. Your future to be exact. And when you go through it, you're going to change the way you think and feel about me. You're going to change the way you think and feel about yourself. Are you prepared to walk into the future?

[ Ridge sighs ]

Ridge: I'm out of here.

Massimo: Go ahead, leave. Run and hide.

Ridge: Open the door.
