Massimo: Well, I'm off to work.

Jackie: Massimo, wait. I want to apologize to you about last night. I just didn't -- I didn't mean to upset you.

Massimo: It was Oscar's engagement party. I was wrong to make such a scene. But when I saw Eric Forrester fawning all over you --

Jackie: We talked about that.

Massimo: Yes. And you said that you were gonna stay away from him.

Jackie: All I was doing was explaining my decision to step down as Fenmore's Forrester rep. That's all. And, quite frankly, he didn't take it very well.

Massimo: Obviously.

Jackie: He thinks that I'm sacrificing too much. He thinks that, well --

Massimo: Sweetheart, you offered to quit that job.

Jackie: Well, I know, but that was just to make you comfortable. Because you didn't want me working with Eric. But the more that I think about it, Massimo, I -- look, I'm not siding with Eric. But I can't quit my job.


Announcer: The role of "Bridget Forrester" is now being played by Emily Harrison.

Oscar: Cream and sugar, right?

Bridget: I don't want to make you late for work.

Oscar: What are you talking about? I've got plenty of time. All right. Seriously, I'm glad you came by.

Bridget: How was your night?

Oscar: My night? My night was quiet. Very quiet. Especially after the party.

Bridget: I'll bet.

Oscar: Yeah. Wasn't quite the celebration you were hoping for, huh?

Bridget: God, I still can't believe what happened between dad and Massimo.

Oscar: Yeah, I know. I know, that was -- what do you call it --? Intense.

Bridget: It was appalling.

Oscar: Really? You think that? 'Cause I wasn't quite sure if I should bring it up or not.

Bridget: I mean, seriously, what was he thinking? Making a scene like that? Accusing my father of hitting on his wife?

Oscar: Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute. Time out. Are you saying you think this is Massimo's fault?

Bridget: Well, you're not? Oz, he went ballistic.

Oscar: He was provoked.

Bridget: Provoked?

Oscar: Yeah, I mean, how else is the guy gonna react? I mean, maybe I wouldn't have done it with quite so much vigor, but I can understand how somebody might get a little upset if some guy is hitting on his wife.

Bridget: Okay, my dad wasn't hitting on Jackie. So, you can just take that back.


Thomas: Should you be drinking coffee around the fabric?

Caitlin: It's treated with belief.

Thomas: Right.

Caitlin: Can I help you?

Thomas: I'm looking for Eric Forrester.

Caitlin: I haven't seen him.

Thomas: Are you a model?

Caitlin: I'm an intern.

Thomas: Hey, I'm thinkin' of doing that, too.

Caitlin: Oh, well, you should. This is a great place to work.

Thomas: So I've heard.

Caitlin: Would you like me to show you around?

Thomas: Show me around?

Caitlin: Yeah.

Thomas: You don't know who I am.

Caitlin: Oh, well, I don't really know who anyone is around here yet. But I'm getting a pretty good sense of the place. Don't worry, once you're on the inside, things get pretty relaxed. It's the same way with Mr. Forrester. I mean, I thought he would be really intimidating. But he's not. He's just really laid back and sincere. If you get the job here, I think you're really gonna like it.

Thomas: Oh, yeah. I've got my fingers crossed.


Oscar: Your dad cornered Jackie on the terrace.

Bridget: He did not corner her. And he's not coming on to her.

Oscar: That's not the way Massimo sees it.

Bridget: Okay, but Massimo is pathologically jealous. My dad and Jackie are friends.

Oscar: Maybe.

Bridget: No, it's true.

Oscar: Fine, I don't even know. I'm just going by what Massimo says, all right?

Bridget: Yeah, but Massimo isn't thinking. And neither are you.

Oscar: Okay, wait, wait, wait -- just wait. I'm not trying to be a jerk here, all right? I just -- whatever, I understand you love your father, okay?

Bridget: Yeah, but he wouldn't interfere with Massimo's marriage. He's not like that. He's not.

Oscar: Wait, wait. What are we doing?

Bridget: Well, you're insulting my father.

Oscar: Yes, I am. I'm sorry. We're doing exactly whet we said we wouldn't do.

Bridget: I know, we're arguing.

Oscar: About our families. This is between Massimo and your dad. It has nothing to do with us.

Bridget: Right, but it does if we start taking sides.

Oscar: I understand you really want to defend your father.

Bridget: Yeah, he wouldn't want us fighting about this.

Oscar: Neither would Massimo.

Bridget: I told you this could get complicated.

Oscar: Yeah, you're right, it could. But let me make it really simple. I love you, Bridget. I'm not gonna let anything come between us. Okay?


Massimo: Your job is more important than our marriage?

Jackie: It isn't an either-or situation.

Massimo: But I thought the decision was made.

Jackie: That you don't want me working with Eric.

Massimo: Jacqueline, I do not trust the man. And after last night, I have every right not to.

Jackie: This isn't about Eric. I'm talking about my career. I mean, do you know how hard I have worked to get to where I am? I started as a Fenmore's shop girl. And I've worked my way up to the west coast buyer and Forrester Creations happens to be one of our most lucrative clients. I mean, how am I going to explain, Massimo, that I refuse to go back to work for them?

Massimo: I will get you a job at Logan Designs.

Jackie: Oh, I don't want you to get me a job. You're my husband. Your job is to give me love, this house, this wonderful life. You've given me all of that. There are some things I have to do for myself. I've worked so hard to build my reputation, to get people to trust me, to get respect. And it's so important to me.

Massimo: Fine. Fine. All right? If it means that much to you.

Jackie: I'm not just doing this for me.

Massimo: Oh, I'm sure Eric will be thrilled.

Jackie: I'm doing this for us. For our marriage.

Massimo: I don't see how.

Jackie: You want me to be happy?

Massimo: Aren't you?

Jackie: Well, I won't be. Not if I have to give this up, I won't be. I have worked so hard. Can't you understand that I have pride in my work? You could understand that. In fact, that's probably one of the few things that you and Eric actually have in common. Darling, I love you. I love you. You're my husband.

Massimo: And I love you. Too much to watch you walk into that man's clutches.

Jackie: Please, can we just not do this anymore? Let it go.

Massimo: I did that once. I took the word of a man I did not trust. So did you. And we were deceived. And I lost you. Jacqueline, the thought of that happening again --

Jackie: It won't, it won't.

Massimo: You say that with such certainty.

Jackie: Yes, because I know it in my heart.

Massimo: I want you to know what is in my heart. Understand -- I love you. And you're the reason for everything I do. You're my inspiration. You give my life meaning. So, I guess, it's only right to return the favor.

Jackie: Is that a yes? You're not gonna fight me?


Thomas: I'm Thomas, by the way.

Caitlin: Oh, hi. Caitlin. Nice to meet you.

Thomas: So what do they have you doing here at Forrester?

Caitlin: Receiving. All the fabric's coming in for the new collection.

Thomas: Bummer, getting stuck in receiving.

Caitlin: No, no. This is the heart of Forrester Creations -- the sewing room, cutting, patterns. This is where Mr. Forrester's creations come to life.

Thomas: You make him sound like a mad scientist.

Caitlin: He's a genius. I mean, what he's done for high fashion. Melding European sophistication with American glamour. I mean, he practically created the west coast elegance. And now that he's back as CEO, he's going to re-establish Forrester as the number one name in American fashion.

Thomas: Wow. You know a lot about this stuff. You want to be a designer?

Caitlin: Someday. What about you?

Thomas: I am going to run a company with my name on the door.

Caitlin: Oh, well, then you came to the right place. Get a job here, and you can learn from the best.


Deacon: Eric, you know, you don't have to do that right now. I mean, I know you're busy. You've got a lot on your mind -- with everything that happened at Bridget's party. You must be kinda concerned.

Eric: About?

Deacon: Your daughter is marrying a Marone. I mean, that comes with a bit of a price tag, don't you think? I mean -- look, whatever you think about me personally, I'd be lying if I didn't tell you that I'm a little concerned about your daughter getting mixed up in the middle of all that.

Eric, if you would just give me the slightest bit of support, I could give Oscar a run for his money.

Eric: You want my support?

Deacon: Look, I know how much Bridget respects your opinion. She respects you. If you could just give me the thumbs up, I could --

Eric: Why would I do that, Deacon?

Deacon: Oh, I'm -- I'm sorry. I thought that you were concerned about the fact that your daughter is about to marry Oscar Marone.

Eric: Well, I'd be a lot more concerned if she was involved with you.

Deacon: Eric, I care about your daughter.

Eric: So do I. And that's why you're working here. But I would break every promise I ever made to her to keep you out of her life.

Deacon: Okay, well, listen, don't -- don't hold anything inside. Don't beat around the bush.

Eric: All right, just stop it, you stop it! You've caused my daughter too much pain already. And Bridget has a bright future. And I'm gonna do everything I possibly can to be sure that you're not in it.


Massimo: I certainly hope that Lauren Fenmore appreciates your loyalty.

Jackie: I'm loyal to you, too. Never doubt that.

Massimo: I'm sorry if you think I did.

Jackie: Massimo, I think you should save your apologies for Oscar and Bridget.

Massimo: Well, we did make a mess out of their evening, didn't we?

Jackie: We?

Massimo: Well, you knew how I would react seeing you talk to Eric.

Jackie: Oh, gosh. Here I was about to forgive you.

Massimo: If I support your decision to stay on at Fenmore's.

Jackie: It would be so nice to know that you're behind me.

Massimo: Well, you're gonna do it regardless. But, you know, I have a great idea.

Jackie: Hmm?

Massimo: I could buy Fenmore Department stores, and then I could just fire you myself.

Jackie: Oh, Massimo, stop. You're incorrigible.

Massimo: Yes, I am. And I love you so damn much that if I feel threatened in any way, I just react. That's the way I am.

Jackie: It's a good job that you married a woman who knows how to keep those reactions in check. I'm your wife, darling. I promise you, you've got absolutely no reason to feel threatened, ever.


Bridget: Nothing's gonna come between us? Ozzy, something just did.

Oscar: So? Now we know what we're up against.

Bridget: A lot more than we bargained for.

Oscar: Yeah, that's true. It's not just nick and ridge, huh?

Bridget: Now my dad and Massimo are going at it.

Oscar: Well, it's gonna be tough. But that doesn't mean we have to let it get to us.

Bridget: We're gonna disagree.

Oscar: Yes! Yes. We're definitely gonna disagree sometimes. And you know what? Sometimes we're actually gonna fight about it, too, because people do that. But it doesn't mean we have to let it escalate and get crazy about it, because all we have to do is just remember that we love each other.


Jackie: That's a good idea. Massimo and I, we've just come to the very, very same agreement.

Caitlin: Could you take those to Thorne, in his office? Thank you. Mr. Forrester, hey, um, do you have a minute? I have something really important that I need to talk to you about.

Caitlin: I know you're very busy, and I hate to bother you, but I would just never forgive myself if I didn't at least ask.

Eric: Is it something about the inventory?

Caitlin: Oh, no, sir. It's a personal question.

Eric: For me?

Caitlin: Oh, for my class. I won't be offended if you say no.

Eric: Well, I can't say anything if you don't say something.

Caitlin: That's exactly what I was thinking.

Eric: All right, let's -- let's go outside. It's a little quieter out there.

Caitlin: Okay. First of all, I want to say how excited I am to be working here at Forrester. I mean, this is just such an exciting time.

Eric: Well, it is.

Caitlin: And I would just love to get your insight on it. As part of my intern program, I'm supposed to interview someone in my field. And since I want to be a designer, I was -- I know it's a lot to ask, but I was wondering if I could interview you.

Eric: Do you have your questions ready?

Caitlin: Oh, more than I could ask.

Eric: Uh-huh. Well, I do have -- I have a little time right now.

Caitlin: You'll do it?

Eric: Well, nothing is as good for the soul as a little blatant self-promotion. I tell you what -- you go up to my office and wait for me. I have a few things to take care of, and then I'll -- I'll join you. Go on, go on, go on, go on.

Caitlin: Thank you.

Deacon: "Why would I give you my support?" Bridget wants nothing to do if that's what the guy's saying to my face, what the hell's he saying behind my back? I must be out of my tree giving this guy the benefit of the doubt. First he runs me over, then he shoots me. What the hell am I thinking here? Eric, come on, Eric.

[ Deacon chuckles ] Bingo. "Eric Forrester personal taxes." Well, I'm gonna guess that would be helpful. Oh, this is good. Now, if I didn't know better, I would say that that looks just like the new Mrs. Marone. You naughty little boy, Eric. You like to doodle.

Caitlin: Oh, Mr. Forrester, there you are.

Eric: I'm sorry. I had to stop and get these sketches.

Caitlin: I didn't want to go in without your permission.

Eric: No, it's okay. We never lock the doors here at Forrester. That's one of the best things about it. Being a family business, we all trust one another.


Bridget: You and Massimo made up?

Jackie: Yes, and I hope you have, too.

Oscar: It's nothing that a little apology couldn't fix.

Jackie: Oh, speaking of which, Massimo, he wants to make one to you.

Oscar: You know what? Maybe it's better that we just forget about it.

Bridget: Yeah, this whole situation just got out of control.

Jackie: Yes, it did, but it won't happen again.

Bridget: Massimo and dad can't avoid each other forever.

Oscar: Yeah, they're gonna have to see each other eventually, like, you know, at our wedding.

Jackie: Well, I guarantee you, by that time, this entire family is going to be getting along.


[ Phone rings ]

Massimo: Marone.

Deacon: Massimo, Its Deacon. I've got something for you.

Massimo: I'm not it' interested

Deacon: What the hell are you talking about? I just stole it from Eric's office.

Massimo: Then put it back.

Deacon: Wait a second. You told me to dig something up. I dug it up.

Massimo: Right, and now I don't want it.

Deacon: So, you've changed your mind?

Massimo: I had a conversation this morning with Jacqueline. And for her sake, I am ending this vendetta.

Deacon: Massimo, this is a big mistake.

Massimo: I trust my wife.

Deacon: Uh, yeah, well, you know what? I trust my kid not to play with matches, but, gosh, I'm just not gonna let him lose in a fireworks factory.

Massimo: What do you mean?

Deacon: Listen to me. This is no time to let your guard down. I've got -- I've got Eric's private tax records, Massimo. And besides that, I've got proof that he's after your wife.

Massimo: Proof?

Deacon: Massimo, I saw a sketch with Jackie's face on it. The guy's fantasizing about your wife. He doesn't give a damn who sees it, either.

Massimo: See, I warned her.

Deacon: Somebody's gotta stop him.

Massimo: Don't worry, Mr. Sharpe. I will. I will.
