Oscar: You had this ring made just for me?

Massimo: You're a Marone.

Oscar: Nick and Ridge, they're your sons. I'm just a --

Massimo: You are a part of this family. My flesh and blood. See this? It's been passed on through the Marone generations. It means that you belong to something. A family that looks out for each other. Protects each other and puts the lives of the family members above all else.

Oscar: That's definitely a lot to live up to.

Massimo: That's why there are only three of these existence in this world, until now.

Jackie: Massimo, for goodness sake don't keep the poor boy waiting.

Massimo: Ah, no, no, no, there is a hitch. I mean, this ring cannot just be given. It has to be earned, Oscar. And until Oscar does that, I'm going to put it away in a safe place, where it will be awaiting the right moment.

Oscar: The "right moment"?

Massimo: Yes, the day that I feel that you've earned it.


Sally: CEO’s are not paid by the hour.

Eric: Sally, you know what this feels like? It feels like I've been reunited with a long, lost love and I don't want to waste a moment.

Sally: Well, I can certainly sympathize with that feeling, of course. Probably better than most people could, but I also know that success in business isn't everything. There is such a thing as love. The kind that makes you weak in the knees.

Eric: That's funny. I was just thinking about that a few minutes ago.

Sally: Good. A handsome devil like you ought to have a special lady in his life. And as a matter of fact, I happen to know a very, very special woman who has a real liking for you, too, and I think her highness is at home, alone, right now.

Eric: Sally, Sally -- Stephanie has been my friend and my champion, for many years now, and I'll always be grateful for that.

Sally: But?

Eric: But my inspiration is what I'm looking for right now.

[ Sally sighs ]

Sally: And that isn't Stephanie? I'm very sorry to hear that. I know, I myself, have been growing more and more fond of her every day and if you tell her that, I will deny it.

Eric: I have to admit I've been very impressed with Stephanie's attitude the last few weeks. Her support of Brooke, which makes Brooke leaving Ridge even more tragic.

Sally: Oh, what are you talking about? It's the best thing that ever happened to him.

Eric: Stop it sally! Stop it! There'll be no more Brooke bashing here tonight. I won't tolerate it.

Sally: All right, Eric, listen to me. You know, I never intended to do anything to cause pain for you and your family. In my own clumsy way I was just trying to help.

Eric: I know, by being there for Stephanie.

Sally: Yes, that of course and also by paying a visit to a certain laboratory and trying to alter the results of that notorious paternity test.

Eric: What?!

Sally: Just take it easy. Before you blow your top here, let me try and explain myself, all right? I was half out of my mind with grief over the loss of my daughter, and somehow it got all twisted up in my head, and I started to blame Brooke for everything. For all the years and all the pain she's caused my family. Not to mention this latest "impropriety."

Eric: Sally, that gives you no right!

Sally: Oh, yes, I did go over to that laboratory, and I tried to hack into the computer, and I tried to put a little check mark next to the name, "Captain Nicholas Payne," designating him the father of Brooke's unborn child. But I failed and I failed miserably.

Eric: Are you sure?! Sally, because Ridge and Brooke are on separate paths as we speak, and if there's any chance those test results were tampered with -- Sally tell me! Is there any chance Ridge is that baby's father!?


Samantha: Ridge? Ridge, are you here? Oh, shoot. I wanted to get here before the delivery came. I didn't want you to have to see this. I'll call and have them pick it up.

Ridge: Don't bother.

Samantha: Ridge, I'm so sorry.

Ridge: I told the kids today there was not gonna be another child coming to stay with us. Even though Brooke was gonna be a part of our family, she and Hope were not gonna live with us anymore.

Samantha: How are they holding up?

Ridge: Oh, disappointed, but they never cease to amaze me. Their maturity, resilience. I have to wonder, though -- just how much loss can they really take?

Samantha: The same could be asked of their dad.

Ridge: I was gonna have a little son. A little boy with Brooke. A dream come true for us. The thrill of it, of having a little child. Expecting that little baby to come into your lives. We were so certain. Brooke was -- I definitely felt it. It seemed so real to me. I didn't believe for one moment -- not one moment that that child could've been Nick's.

Samantha: Like you said, they'll always be a part of your life.

Ridge: Yeah. Yeah. Good ol' Uncle Ridge. Whoop-dee-do. Hmm. Marone ring. Passed down from generation to generation. Guess I won't have to have another one of these made.


Oscar: I've heard about this Marone ring my whole life.

Massimo: I didn't think your side of the family cared very much for this tradition.

Oscar: Ha, well, we were never really that well accepted, so why would we act like we cared? But you know what, the truth is, this ring, it's legendary. It represented all the success and especially the honor that we all secretly kind of strived for.

Bridget: Massimo, that is a beautiful gesture.

Massimo: I haven't done anything, really. The ball is now in Oscar's court.

Oscar: It's just the fact that you think of me as part of your family, you know, like this. With you and Nick and Ridge. It blows me away, but, um -- you know what, you're right, I can't wear this ring just because of my family name. I've gotta prove myself. Like you have. Yeah, that's right. It might surprise you, but I know a thing or two about Marone family history. The whole shipping empire. Started by a father, son and his son. And you took over every port. In Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal -- you control the whole Mediterranean.

Massimo: Good for you, you've been doing your homework.

Oscar: Yeah, I've been doing my homework, but I gotta tell ya, that's one hell of a legacy to carry on.

Massimo: Yes, and the empire grows every day, but I have to warn you about something, Oscar. It's not all fun and games. I mean, there have been some nasty wars. Even having to vanquish some friends along the way.

Jackie: Glad I just acquire clothing lines.

Bridget: Wow, Massimo, didn't they hate you for taking over like that?

Massimo: Sure, but it's business. Someone had to take over the territory. If it wasn't us, it would've been someone.

Oscar: Eat or be eaten.

Massimo: Does that scare, you?


Eric: Sally, are you sure?! Are you sure you didn't touch a key or changed a name, or do anything to impact that test?

Sally: I told you, I never got the chance. Now, if you don't believe me, feel free to interview that computer geek at the laboratory. The one who nailed me, and sent me flying.

Eric: All right, all right, all right, so, you didn't change the test results. But the fact that you would even think of it -- I mean, my God.

Sally: Would you just relax? It's all water under the bridge now anyway.

Eric: Well, Ridge and Brooke don't deserve this, all right! Not after everything they've been through.

Sally: All right! All right, enough about Romeo and Jezebel already. Let's talk about your love life.

Eric: What about it?

Sally: It's just that I meant what I said before. You're far too attractive a man not to have a woman in your life. You know, you could always drop by my little house and I could fix you a nice hot cup of Irish whiskey.

Eric: Sally, I'm quite happy alone. Although I will admit to fantasizing a bit, from time to time.

Sally: Ohh, a fantasy lover, hmm? That's very interesting. Now, let my try and figure out who that could be? Hmm, let's see, aside from Stephanie you really haven't been with -- anyone for a very long time, have you, Eric? Oh, except for that silly incident at the beach house when you got sort of involved with Nick Marone's moth --

Eric: I need to finish this sketch. I have a meeting in the morning.

Sally: Eric -- no, say it isn't so, huh? Not Jackie Marone.

Eric: I didn't say that.

Sally: I know, but your silence speaks volumes.

Eric: Sally, Jackie and I are good friends and I respect her marriage. As long as that's what she wants, but on the day that she has the sense to see through Massimo, I want to be the one who's there for her.

Sally: Eric Forrester, you are definitely asking for trouble.


Massimo: Business is war, Oscar. There's bound to be casualties and that can be a frightening prospect for some people.

Oscar: No, it doesn't scare me. It excites me.

Massimo: Power is exciting. It's intoxicating. It's like a -- it's like a magnet. People are drawn to it. They didn't want to be part of it.

Oscar: I get that. I do. I want to be part of it, too.

Massimo: You already are. And Bridget, once you're married, you'll become one of us, too.

Bridget: I wouldn't have it any other way.

Jackie: We couldn't be more thrilled.

Massimo: You know, we have high hopes for you two, um-hmm. And I expect to hear the pitter-patter of at least a dozen little Marone feet running around here someday.

Bridget: A dozen?

Massimo: Yo, you're marrying an talian, after all.

Oscar: Hey, why stop there? Why not 20, 30?

Jackie: You know, don't listen to Massimo, he gets certain ideas into his head and he just gets carried away.

Oscar: Yeah, well, speaking of carried away, um -- I don't know, I just, I don't know how to tell you how much it means to me --

Massimo: No need to. Just show me. Remember, the ring means many things, but above all, it means loyalty. Loyalty to the family and to me.

Oscar: Well, I'm gonna prove myself. Whatever it takes.

Massimo: That's what I'm counting on.


Samantha: You know, you probably don't remember this, but -- the day my family and I left Los Angeles, I was a wreck. I felt like I was losing everything. All my friends, and the only life I'd ever known. And as the car pulled out of the driveway for the last time, you ran over to me and you yelled something, and I've never forgotten what you said. Do you remember what you said? No, of course not. Well, it was a long time ago.

Ridge: "Always in motion is the future."

Samantha: You remember.

Ridge: Must've been going through my "Star Wars" phase then. I'm surprised you remember that.

Samantha: Oh, yeah. Well, it was the worst Yoda impression I'd ever heard.

Ridge: Hey, now, I don't need to hear that.

Samantha: Still, the sentiment isn't half bad.


Jackie: You're absolutely sure you can't stay for an after dinner drink?

Oscar: Well, it'd be great, but I gotta be at Forrester bright and early.

Massimo: Can't keep Eric waiting.

Oscar: Okay, that's my future father-in-law.

Massimo: Hmm.

Jackie: Darling, I never told you this dress is darling.

Bridget: Thank you.

Oscar: So, thanks again, Mass.

Massimo: Ah, don't thank me, thank Jacqueline. She and Hudson put this all together.

Oscar: Yeah, and that was great, the lasagna and everything, but I wasn't talking about dinner. I mean, you know, you having faith in me and the ring.

Massimo: I wouldn't have had it mad for you, Oscar, if I didn't think you deserved it.

Oscar: I promise you, someday I will.

Massimo: Perhaps sooner than you think.

Bridget: Ozzy, you ready?

Oscar: Yeah, yeah, let's go.

Jackie: Bye, darling.

Bridget: Thank you again.

Jackie: No, thank you for coming.

Bridget: Good night.

Massimo: Good night, good night.

Jackie: Bye, Oscar.

Bridget: Bye. See?! And you were worried Massimo wouldn't support our engagement. He considers you one of the family.

Oscar: I never in a million years imagined I'd be wearing a Marone ring.

Bridget: Well, imagine it, honey. You know, I really admire the way you handled yourself in there. How you promised you would earn the ring.

Oscar: I meant every word.

Bridget: One more thing I love about you, your integrity.

Oscar: You know, I never thought I'd have a family again. So, now that I have one, I'm not gonna let 'em down. Especially you.


[ Fire crackling ]

Jackie: That was a wonderful thing you did, making a ring for Oscar.

Massimo: Ah, I'm starting to see the promise in that young man.

Jackie: Oh, that talk, though, of the Marone history -- those wars, gracious, made me glad that's all behind us.

[ Jackie yawns ] Oh, I'm so sorry. I didn't realize how tired I was. I think I'm going to go to bed. Are you coming?

Massimo: I'll be up in a moment.

Jackie: I'll be waiting.

Massimo: Okay, shortly.

[ Massimo sighs ] Trust me, Oscar, you're gonna earn your place in this family, working that closely with that damn Eric Forrester. You're going to prove to be very valuable to me. You'll feel so confident underneath it all.
