Amber: Oh, come on, Ginger. Please, I would have loved to be the one to sing the jingle for the Ambrosia line, but being the designer of Ambrosia line, you know, I think it would have been a little bit of overkill. And given my current situation, you know, I'm not really that great for Forrester's image. So they had to find someone else to sing it. And from what I hear, it's been very difficult. So, I'm really excited to hear this.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Amber: Oh, I gotta go. The messenger's here. Thanks, Ginger. Bye.

Messenger: Delivery for Amber Forrester.

Amber: That's me.

Messenger: Just need your autograph on line 23.

Amber: Thank you. Bye.

[ Amber laughs excitedly ] okay, here we go.

Ambrosia smile light up the world Ambrosia style

[ rapping ]

I may be daddy's little girl but I'm not a child I got a touch of class and I'm a little wild

and if you wonder why I'm wearing this permanent smile I'll tell you a little secret Ambrosia style

Ambrosia smile light up the world Ambrosia style that's great. She's great. I wonder if I've ever heard of her. Erica Lovejoy?! No way. No freaking way! Oh, my --

Ridge: Problems, Amber?


Erica: Please, Rick -- you want to make love to me -- I know that you do --

Rick: What guy wouldn't?

Erica: You are the only man that I'm interested in.

Rick: That doesn't make this right.

Erica: I trust you. Are you saying that I shouldn't? That you don't care about me?

Rick: That's not the point, Erica.

Erica: I know it's not. Because, Rick, I know that you care.

Erica: I see it in everything you do for me. Not just giving me a job, but taking care of me when I got hurt. Making me feel like I'm a part of your family. Now, I want to show you how much I care.


[ Applause ]

Bridget: Thank you.

Dr. Kelly: That's about it for our formal presentation. Dr. Hu, Dr. Newman and I will be available for any questions you might have. We look forward to getting to know you a little better. Welcome to the program.

[ Applause ]

Eric: Go ahead.

Brooke: I don't want to push it.

Eric: Come on.

Bridget: How did my parents find out about this?

C.J.: I don't know. I'm serious, Bridget. I had nothing to do with it. Are you okay that they're here?

Brooke: Hi, honey.

Bridget: Hi.

Eric: Bridget, this is so wonderful.

Bridget: I'm so glad you're here.

Dr. Kelly: Mr. Forrester, ms. Logan? I'm Dr. Kelly, the head of the program.

Eric: How do you do?

Dr. Kelly: You must be very proud.

Brooke: Oh, yes, yes, we are.

Dr. Kelly: Can we get a picture for our campus publications?

Eric: Sure.

Photographer: Just stand on either side of her if you will. Great. Now, Bridget, I'd like you to put an arm around each of them. That's it. Perfect.

Photographer: Bridget, let's get some more up front with you and Dr. Kelly.

Bridget: Sure.

Eric: Don't forget this.

Bridget: Oh, right.

Brooke: I haven't seen her do that in a while.

Eric: Do what?

Brooke: Smile.

Eric: It's a little different now, though. It has a -- I don't know -- confidence and maturity. I don't recall divorce doing that for us.

Brooke: No, but she's strong. She's stronger than I could ever be. I just hope that I'm half the person she is when I grow up.

Eric: You should tell her that.

Photographer: I just need to change film, and then, Bridget, I'd like to get a few more of you and your parents.

C.J.: Hey.

Bridget: Hi.

C.J.: Are you sure you're okay with that?

Bridget: Yeah. Yeah, I am.

C.J.: If you say so.

Eric: C.J. -- I want to thank you for coming to our daughter's rescue tonight. Though she doesn't need rescuing very often, she's a very capable young lady.

C.J.: You're absolutely right about that.

Photographer: Okay, folks, you ready for take two? Can I have everyone back in position?

Eric: All right. I'll get over here.

Bridget: Okay.

[ Bridget laughing ]


Ridge: So, let me guess -- they chose the trailer park you grew up in for the next nuclear waste site, huh?

Amber: Actually, the problem I'm having is coming from your side of the tracks.

Ridge: What did little Ricky do this time?

Amber: As if I'd tell you.

Ridge: I'm going to find out anyway. But I have a pretty good idea it has something to do with Erica. That was her name you were screeching out, wasn't it?

Amber: You know what you remind me of, Ridge? You remind me of a cat that gets off on playing with its catch until it dies from exhaustion.

Ridge: Hmm -- interesting vivid image. That's rather Shakespearean of you. He was a writer, by the way.

Amber: Rick hired Erica to do all the Ambrosia commercials, all right. Will you leave me alone now?

Ridge: So he pulled a nobody off the street to fulfill a position she's not qualified for. That sounds like poetic justice to me.

Amber: You know, at least when I when started at Forrester, I didn't have an ulterior motive.

Ridge: Oh, no. You had no intention at all of maneuvering me out of the company.

Amber: Believe it or not, I'm not like Erica. Okay? I don't steal things out from other people. But she going for it. She's going for it all. Yeah. Everything that ever meant anything to me -- first my husband, my son, and now my place at Forrester.

Ridge: You'd better watch out, Amber, she might be throwing a rock at you from halfway across town.

Amber: Why do you keep attacking me, huh? Can't you tell I'm not a threat to your family?

Ridge: Yeah, for once, you're right. You've totally lived down to my expectations on that one. Even my half-witted brother seems to have figured out what a loser you are.

Amber: Okay, okay, you hate me. That's fine. That's just fine with me. I can live with that. But don't you have any feeling at all for Rick under that humongous ego of yours?

Ridge: Actually, I'm kinda pleased he's finally found someone with a little class and sincerity.

Amber: Oh, class and sincerity? Yeah, right, Erica's real classy. She's moving in on another woman's husband. You know, she's probably over there right now rehearsing her little jingle in front of Rick in some skanky little thong bikini.

Ridge: Yeah, well, if she is, Amber, how long do you think Rick is really gonna resist?


Rick: All right, what'd you do with her?

Erica: With who?

Rick: Erica Lovejoy -- the girl that was here yesterday. Kind, sweet, shy.

Erica: Boring.

Rick: Not to me.

Erica: I guess I did come on kinda strong, huh?

Rick: Kinda?

Erica: Hey, you know what? Maybe I'm just -- I'm practicing my diva act for when my commercial goes national and I'm a big singing sensation.

Rick: From what I hear, divas are supposed to play hard to get.

Erica: Is that what you want me to do?

Rick: Just be yourself, and I'll be happy.

Erica: Do you really mean that?

Rick: Yeah. You've got way too much going for you to have to resort to lap dances.

Erica: God, I'm so embarrassed.

Rick: Oh, no, don't get me wrong, I mean, that was -- that was definitely stimulating. But, I mean -- you know what? If you wanna do something for me, dinner and a video would do just fine.

Erica: You know what? I didn't rent anything, but we still have some Mousakka left.

Rick: Then what are we waiting for? This looks good. Why don't you try it out?

Erica: Oh, sure. Thanks. You know, I think this night is going to turn out just like I'd hoped.

Rick: You know, somehow Mousakka tastes a lot better now than it did when I was 5.

Erica: Is that the first time you tried it?

Rick: Yeah. We went to this little Greek restaurant in the valley. And I hated it from the start. I wouldn't eat anything they put in front of me. But, all of a sudden, all these people got up, and they started singing and dancing and smashing plates on the floor. Do you have any idea how cool it is to be little and get to break plates on the floor without even getting in trouble? Man, it was -- it was magical.

Erica: It's really great to be able to live those moments all over again.

Rick: Yeah. What about you? What moments would you like to live again?

Erica: My concert when I played first violin. Nailing Jeffrey Altman with a snowball after he made fun of my braces. My first kiss.

Rick: He's a lucky boy.

Erica: And this. Rick, it was so amazing the other night when you kissed me. Don't you want to live that all over again, too?


Photographer: Okay, folks, that about wraps it up. Thanks, everyone.

Eric: Thanks.

Stephanie: What a handsome family.

Brooke: We think so.

Photographer: Mr. And Mrs. Forrester, may I trouble you for a moment? I want to get these credits right.

Eric: Oh, of course. Of course. Here let me see that. This is Latin, isn't it?

Stephanie: I'm the one that orchestrated this. So if your going to be upset, be upset with me.

Bridget: What did you have to do to get mom to come?

Stephanie: Well, your mother really wanted to be here. She only hesitated --

Bridget: She hesitated?

Stephanie: Now, don't jump to conclusions. She was worried about coming because she was worried how you'd react if she just showed up.

Bridget: Well, she was right to be worried.

Stephanie: Oh, really? I knew differently. I knew you'd want your mother here. Children always do.

Bridget: C.J., Would you keep miss know-it-all over here company while I take care of something?

C.J.: Sure.

Bridget: Thank you.

Photographer: Great. Thank you very much.

Bridget: I hope Stephanie didn't pull you away from anything important.

Brooke: No, there's nothing more important than you.

Bridget: I'm glad you're here.

Eric: Honey, I can't tell you how impressed we are with this program you've been admitted into.

Brooke: We are very proud of you. It takes a very special person to start over. And we just want you to know that we're behind you, and we're with you every step of the way from now on.


Rick: Erica, that kiss the other night -- it wasn't what you think it was.

Erica: So, what, now you're gonna tell me you were just feeling sorry for me?

Rick: Because your mother ran out on you, yes.

Erica: Well, then you give me a hug or a kiss on the cheek. But that's not what you did. And I know that's not what you want to do now.

Rick: Okay. So we sleep together, and then what? I'm still married. I still love my wife. And you've lost your virginity.

Erica: How do you know I'm still a virgin? Okay, well, I thought making it with a virgin was what every guy fantasizes about.

Rick: You really want to make this hard for me, don't you?

Erica: No, I don't. That's just it. Rick, I want something to be easy for you for once. I want to show you what it's like to be with somebody that you can totally trust, somebody who cares about you. And, I mean, really cares about you. I want you to feel safe and cherished and loved. You need to be loved.

[ Phone rings ]

Erica: Rick, don't, please.

Rick: Hello?

Amber: Hi.

Rick: Amber, what's -- what's going on?

Amber: I thought maybe you could tell me.

Rick: Tell you what?

Amber: Why you hired Erica to do the vocals on the commercial?

Rick: Can we get into this tomorrow?

Amber: You know how I feel about her.

Rick: Look, I can't do this now, okay?

Amber: She's there, isn't she? Don't let her get to you, Rick. She's got this whole act going on. I know she does. And I don't care how crazy it makes me sound, I'm gonna keep saying it until you listen to me.

Rick: Amber --

Amber: I'm just worried about you.

Rick: I'm fine, okay? Just try and get some sleep, and I'll call you tomorrow.

Amber: Be careful. I love you.

Rick: I know. Good night.

Erica: I'm glad you told her you were busy.

Rick: Look, Erica, we can't.

Erica: But, Rick --

Rick: As fun as this celebration was, and as much as I'd like it to continue, it ends here.

Erica: She's not good for you, Rick.

Rick: Good night, Erica.

Erica: Next time, Rick -- it'll happen.


C.J.: She really looks happy.

Stephanie: I think she is.

C.J.: Look, I don't know what happened between her and Brooke. But it's obviously meant a lot for her to have family here today, so -- thank you.

Stephanie: And what have you done for her lately?

C.J.: Ah, nothing, just give her a job, place to live.

Stephanie: And a good dose of self-confidence.

C.J.: Well, she's done a lot for me, too. More than she knows.

Stephanie: Huh, there just no accounting for taste, is there?

Bridget: I hope he hasn't been boring you with his theory on the curative benefits of Sumatra beans.

Stephanie: He's been just barely tolerable.

Bridget: Really? Yeah, that doesn't really surprise at all.


Brooke: We owe Stephanie a lot.

Eric: I'm glad she pushed you into coming tonight.

Brooke: I'm glad you did, too.

Eric: Well, Bridget needs both her parents.

Brooke: It's nice being a family again.

Eric: We'll have to make sure that happens more often.

Brooke: Well, you'll have to pave the way on that one. You can see how much more comfortable she is with you than she with me.

Eric: I will. I'll pave the way. I thought that would make you happy.

Brooke: Yes. Yes, it makes me happier than I've been in a long time.
