Thorne: You're dreading this as much as I am.

Eric: More, given what's going to happen when that elevator door opens.

Thorne: Yes, and Deacon Sharpe rolls out.

Eric: Uh-huh, and then he and his cohorts operate their new company out of this building.

Thorne: As a subsidiary of Forrester.

Eric: God help us, yes. And if I appear anything less than cooperative --

Thorne: You'll risk alienating Bridget again, dad.

Eric: Yeah, which I do not want to do, given everything that's happened with us the last few weeks.

Thorne: Won't be easy. Dad, you can't let Deacon or Amber or Sally get under your skin. And you know they will. Probably the minute they get off that elevator.

                        ************************************************************************

[Elevator dings]

Sally: So, what do you say, hot-wheels? You ready for action? Your big moment has arrived.

Deacon: No, no, no, this is our big moment. Yours, mine and Amber's. Let's do it.

Sally: Lets go.

Amber: Okay.

Sally: Okay, whoa, wait, wait, wait. Hey, what is this? Where is everybody? Where's the brass band? Where's the press, clamoring to report our triumphant arrival? Come on, I mean, it isn't every day that Forrester creations spawns a brand-new offspring.

Deacon: Well, somehow, I think Eric might see it a little bit differently, but all the same, it would be nice to see a couple familiar faces.

Amber: You know, Eric's probably in his office.

Sally: Well, I hope he's not in there planning to sabotage us again. He did that to you already once, deacon. I hope he's not in there planning an encore.

Eric: Well, there they are. Hello, everybody. Welcome to Forrester.

                        *******************************************************************

[Doorbell rings]

Jackie: Brooke? Are you all right?

Brooke: What are you doing here?

Jackie: You don't look well. It's not the baby, is it?

Brooke: Not the way you mean, no.

Jackie: But something is wrong? It's your marriage, isn't it? It's already beginning to feel the strain. You and Ridge, you thought that you could raise Nicky's baby together, but you're beginning to realize that that just --

[Jackie sighs] Ah, Brooke. Please, talk to me. You know that I care about you. Whatever has happened, you can talk to me.

Brooke: I was in bed with Ridge. I wanted my husband so much and he wanted me. But he couldn't make love to me. Because I'm carrying his brother's child.

                        *************************************************************************

[Knock on the door]

Ridge: Ozzy, hey. You got here fast.

Oscar: No point in delaying' the inevitable, right?

Ridge: Not with something this important, no.

Oscar: So go ahead, lay it on me. Or maybe I can save you the trouble. You're gonna tell me that you think I'm --

Ridge: The man for the job. You look a little surprised.

Oscar: A little bit. I mean, don't get me wrong, I think it's great that you feel that way, but I just --

Ridge: Look, all modesty aside, I think you've got a lot to offer. So, to prove that, I think you should throw a party.

Oscar: A party? Okay, what do you mean for the family?

Ridge: Well, the family can come if they want to, but mostly we just want to make sure there are a lot of sexy models there. And all the press we can pack in. What better chance to expose yourself, huh?

Oscar: Expose my -- um -- don't you think Bridget might be a little -- we're not talking' about the same thing, are we?

Ridge: Why don't you tell me what you're talking about?

Oscar: My engagement to Bridget. What are you talking about?

Ridge: The job I planned to offer you here at Logan designs. I thought this was a good time to get you on board and going. But now that I know what you're really up to, I'm having second thoughts.

                        ************************************************************************

Sally: Glad to see ya. I thought nobody was here.

Eric: I'm afraid that when it comes to a welcoming committee, Thorne and I are it.

Deacon: Well, that's okay, I was kinda hoping we'd keep things kind low-key for now.

Eric: Actually, I assumed as much. That's why I nixed the boys choir, and the cheerleaders, an l the rest.

Amber: Okay, so where are our new digs, huh? I'm ready to get cracking.

Deacon: Yeah, me too.

Thorne: Do you want to show them, or shall I?

Eric: No, no, I'll do the honors.

                        ****************************************************************************

Oscar: Look, I know what you're thinking. And yeah, things are moving a little fast, but we're planning a long engagement. Anyway, when you know something's right, you know it's right.

Ridge: And you know it's right?

Oscar: Yeah. Yeah, I do. And it's not that I blame Bridget's old man for exactly flipping cartwheels when we told him about it. I mean, she's always gonna be his little girl and he's going to watch after her, especially what Sharpe did. But I'm telling you, I'm not him. I'm not Deacon.

Ridge: So you're gonna treat her right?

Oscar: Yeah, yeah, I'm gonna treat her right! I'm gonna treat her the way she deserves to be treated!

Ridge: You know what, Ozzy? As long as you take it slow and easy, I'm happy for you and bridget.

Oscar: Good.

Ridge: Good. Congratulations. Maybe finally Bridget can put all that bad time with Deacon behind her because of you.

                        *********************************************************************

Sally: So, this is it, huh?

Amber: You expect the three of us to share my old office?

Thorne: Well, we realize it's close quarters, but --

Deacon: But nothing else was available in the executive wing, right?

Eric: We knew you'd understand.

Amber: Well, I don't, okay? Either you're behind this company or you're not and this gives me every indication that you're not!

Eric: Amber, as soon as there's another office.

Deacon: Okay, okay, Eric, this is gonna be great. We're gonna make this work. Right, ladies?

Sally: Absolutely.

Amber: I guess a little "togetherness" never hurt anybody.

Deacon: You see? See, that's the kind of attitude that's gonna make this company great. I like that, it's good.

Sally: Right, now all we need is something to make it official.

Deacon: What did you do?

Sally: I had a plaque made up. It's got the company name and logo on it. How do you like it?

Deacon: Sally, I don't know what to say, I mean, you shouldn't --

Sally: Listen, after everything you've done for me, Deacon, it was the least I could do.

Deacon: Hey, come on, I didn't really do anything.

Sally: You did. I was going down for the count. You saw that and you did something about it. You're the one who come up with the idea of forming a brand-new company. Sharpe Designs was exactly what I needed.

Amber: Me, too.

Deacon: All right.

Amber: Looks like Sharpe Designs is up and running'.

Sally: And heading for enormous success as a Forrester subsidiary. Which makes us all winners. Right, Eric?

                        **********************************************************************

Jackie: Darling, I'm -- I'm so sorry. Although I can't say I'm surprised. I know that you and ridge -- you love one another, but you're just human and you're asking too much of yourselves. Which I think you're starting to realize after what happened -- or didn't happen -- between you and your husband last night.

Brooke: I'm sure that Ridge and I aren’t the only married couple to have to go through something like this.

Jackie: No, I'm sure you're not, but this is -- well, it's very different and it's certainly more complicated.

Brooke: You don't need to remind me. I know what we're facing.

Jackie: I wonder if you do.

Brooke: Jackie, please --

Jackie: I don't want to make this more complicated than it already is. But given what happened last night, and everything else you're going through. I know you want to hold your marriage together, but there comes a time when you have to ask yourself if that's even possible.

Brooke: I don't want to hear this.

Jackie: I don't want to say it, Brooke, but I will because you are like a daughter to me. And it pains me to see the torment that you're going through, especially when there's an alternative. You know how my son feels about you.

Brooke: And you know how important my marriage is to me.

Jackie: What about the father of your child, Brooke? Or have you forgotten that?

Brooke: No, of course not. I haven't forgotten Nick, he's an amazing man --

Jackie: Who's more in love with you now than he's ever been. You do know that, don't you?

Brooke: None of this going to be easy for any of us.

Jackie: It's only going to get harder, as well. That's if you don't do something to change it.

                        ********************************************************************

Oscar: So, I'd be working in promotions?

Ridge: Right here at Logan designs.

Oscar: Corner office, plenty of perks?

Ridge: You gonna be wanting your own parking place next, too?

Oscar: This job, it was Massimo's idea, right?

Ridge: He's the one that asked me to interview you, yeah. But we both felt you'd be a good fit. You know, given your experience in promotions.

Oscar: Oh, yeah. Look what I got to show for that.

Ridge: The point is, we have a of lot confidence in you. You know what, the bucks ain't bad either. So -- what do you say?

                        **************************************************************************

Bridget: Oh, looks like you're getting all settled in. So, the hospital is going to drop off some physical therapy equipment. Which we can set up -- somewhere.

Deacon: Somewhere. That's great, because anything that helps me get the hell out of this contraption and start walking again --

Bridget: I know it's hard not to get frustrated.

Deacon: Nah, I'm just glad you're going to be working with me. It's a shot in the arm.

Amber: And to think, Bridget just "happened" to land a rotation in rehab this semester.

Bridget: Actually, Amber, I asked to supervise Deacon's therapy. Part of an independent study.

Deacon: Thank you. I appreciate it. As a matter of fact, I appreciate everything you've done for me.

Eric: Well, um -- Thorne and I need to get back to our offices. So, I'll see you all later. Are you coming, sweetheart?

Bridget: Yeah, I'll stop by before I leave. I just want to check up on that PT equipment first.

Eric: Okay.

Deacon: Thanks again, Eric.

Bridget: So what do you think?

Eric: I don't like this.

Thorne: I don't either.

Eric: I mean, I realize that she's engaged to Ozzy, but with Bridget helping Deacon with his physical therapy, it just --

Thorne: Yeah, and who knows how he'll try to manipulate that?

Eric: He's not above it. Unless I can come up with some kind of an idea to keep that from happening.

Eric: Calling it a day already?

Deacon: I didn't realize we had to punch a clock, Eric.

Eric: Which is your way of telling me that Sharpe Designs is your company and you're gonna run it the way you see fit.

Sally: Don't worry Eric, you've got the three musketeers here and we are gonna do you proud.

Deacon: And we're gonna do you proud too, Bridget. Listen, I've given you every reason in the book to never speak to me again, and yet you still do. I guess that's just 'cause of who you are.

Bridget: Deacon --

Deacon: No, it's true. I mean, here you are helping me and Sally and Amber. We've done nothing but give you grief. You've told us to hang in there and believe in ourselves. Things are looking up now, and it's because of you. Who the hell couldn't be in love with you?

Amber: Well, okay then, looks like we should be heading off.

Bridget: I'll take you to the lobby. Bye.

                        ************************************************************************

Eric: Ridge! Ridge, I need to know if you've hired Oscar Marone yet.

Ridge: You must be psychic. He's here right now.

Eric: Please tell me he's not working there already.

Ridge: No. I'm planning to change that. How'd you know we wanted him here at Logan?

Eric: Massimo mentioned it. Look, I'll explain it later. Look, I -- I really need Ozzy here at Forrester. The sooner the better.

Ridge: What?

Eric: It's a long story. But with Deacon Sharpe setting up his shop here --

Ridge: Let me guess. This has something to do with Bridget?

Eric: Yes. And how vulnerable she is to Deacon, given everything he's been through. That's why I think it's best if --

Ridge: If her fiancé was there.

Eric: Yes, before Deacon has a chance to get to her again.

                        ***************************************************************************

Brooke: Jackie, I know you mean well, but --

Jackie: I'm not criticizing you, Brooke. I'm just trying to point out -- look, you said it yourself, Nicky is an amazing man who came into your life when you needed him the most.

Brooke: Why are you bringing this up now?

Jackie: Because I think you've forgotten just how special my son was to you once.

Brooke: No, he's still very special. Nothing's going to change that.

Jackie: Good, because you and Nicky -- you share some incredible memories. He brought something into your life that no man ever has.

Brooke: Don't --

Jackie: What? I mean, what? Are you're afraid to remember just how uncomplicated, how exciting it was?

Brooke: No, no, of course, I'm not afraid --

Jackie: I am not trying to upset you. I'm not. I just want to remind you of what you had with Nicky, and what you could have again if you just let yourself. Brooke, I want to be your mother-in-law. I want to love you and care for you just like the daughter I never had. You should be happy. You deserve a wonderful life with a wonderful man and that doesn't mean that Ridge isn't a wonderful man, but there is another man. There is. The father of your child. And he wants nothing more than to spare you the heartache that your life with Ridge has just become. He wants to raise your child, his child, with you. He wants to be a devoted father, a devoted husband --

Brooke: No, stop! I have a husband! Ridge is my husband!

Jackie: But if he can't make love to you, Brooke, what kind of husband can he be? Oh, sweetheart, it's going to be all right. It's going to be all right.

[Brooke crying]
