Ridge: Caitlin, you did it!

Caitlin: Thank you.

Eric: That was the best Forrester showing ever!

Stephanie: Absolutely fabulous!

Caitlin: Thank you.

Rick: Yes, she is.

Hector: We're so proud of you, honey.

Caitlin: Thank you, Dad.

Rick: So you ready for the press?

Caitlin: Wouldn't they rather talk to, like, your Dad or Ridge? I'm not even a Forrester.

Rick: Well, not yet.

Caitlin: Okay, I'm ready. Yes, okay.

Thorne: Okay, guys.

Reporter #1: Ms. Ramirez, how long have you been a designer?

Caitlin: Oh, wait. One at a time, please.

Reporter #2: It's a ground-breaking collection. Where did you get your inspiration?

Caitlin: Well, just look at the people around you. Legends like Eric and Ridge have inspired me my entire life and the love and support of my family. I would really like to introduce you to my parents.

Stephanie: Caitlin --

Caitlin: Yes?

Samantha: Caitlin? Caitlin? Are you okay?

Caitlin: Yeah, I'm fine. I – I must have been daydreaming.

Samantha: About your new job? Ooh, I'm so excited for you!

Caitlin: Thank you.

Samantha: You know, in this industry, this kind of opportunity just doesn't happen.

Caitlin: Well, you know, it won't happen if Dad won't let it. He didn't even want me to intern at Forrester.

Samantha: Well, the was just because he was afraid that we would run into each other. But that's not a problem now, so he's gonna be thrilled.

Hector: Hi, guys.

Samantha: Ah, there he is.

[ Hector sighs ]

Samantha: Hey.

Hector: Careful.

Samantha: Ooh.

Caitlin: Rough day?

Hector: I cannot wait to take a shower. Make me feel human again.

Samantha: Okay. Well, before you do that, our daughter has some news.

Hector: Well, it better be good after the day I've had.


Ridge: Caitlin. So pretty. So accessible.

Eric: Makes her all the more appealing. Young girls will be able to relate to her.

Ridge: Put themselves in her place.

Eric: So what did you want to call this line.

Ridge: Ingénue, by Forrester.

Eric: Ingénue?

Ridge: Yeah.

Eric: I thought you wanted to play up the sensuality?

Ridge: I do, I do. That's what's great about it -- the contrast. Innocence and experience. The girl becomes a woman. It's kinda like we're capturing that precise moment that eve bit into the apple.

Eric: Oh, nobody's even been able to do that.

Ridge: Feels great, doesn't it? You and me working side by side again, sinking our teeth into a new collection.

Eric: Yeah, it does.

Ridge: What? What's that look?

Eric: Thorne.

Ridge: Well, I talked with him. I did.

Eric: Is he feeling any better about all this?


Darla: Did you have fun at the beach? Did you? Did you have fun? How can someone so tiny have half the beach in her swimsuit, huh? How does that happen?

Thorne: Yeah, well, she was having fun making sand castles with daddy. Weren't you, sweet pea?

Darla: That's more like eating sand castles.

Thorne: Yeah, it saves us money on baby food.

Darla: Are you tired, baby? Huh? You wanna to take a nap? Let's take a nap. Daddy, we're gonna take a nap.

Thorne: Okay.

Darla: Okay. Okay, see you later, Daddy. We're gonna take our nap.

Thorne: Good night, sweetie.

[ Knock at door ]

Thorne: Mother! Hey.

Stephanie: Hi, honey. I -- I should have called.

Thorne: No, no, no. Please, come in. Come in.

Stephanie: So you've already hit the beach, I see.

Thorne: Well, we just got back, actually. So what brings you by?

Stephanie: Oh, I -- just came down to sort of check on you.

Thorne: After the board meeting?

Stephanie: Yeah. Things didn't turn out exactly the way either one of us wanted it to turn out.

Thorne: Well, it was disappointing, but -- I'm a team player, so I'll get on board.

Stephanie: For what it's worth, I agree with you.

Thorne: I could have the noble prize in fashion, and Ridge would still find some way to upstage me.

Stephanie: That's not true.

Thorne: You don't have to spare my feelings, okay? That's just the way it's always been. And we both know that's the truth.


Samantha: It's really great news, actually.

Hector: Oh?

Samantha: Forrester Creations has offered Caitlin a job. They liked her designs so much that they -- they want to include her in the new line. And they want to make her a spokes model for the entire new collection. I mean, most designers can only dream of getting a break like this. And for somebody Caitlin's age, it's unheard of.

Hector: Well, why don't you tell me more.

Caitlin: Okay. Well, this new line, it's geared towards the younger market.

Hector: And that's why they want to use you?

Caitlin: Yeah. Oh, well, Dad, no, no, no. Not -- not use me, just take advantage of -- of --

Samantha: Well, they recognize your -- your talents and your -- your potential. It's really thrilling, don't you think?

Hector: Yes, I do. I think it's wonderful. And if they really want you this much now, imagine how much they're gonna want you in a few years, when you finish college.


Ridge: We had a good talk.

Eric: Were you able to ease any of Thorne's concerns?

Ridge: Well, it turns out it goes a lot deeper than the new line.

Eric: What did he say?

Ridge: He feels like your decision was based more on personal reasons -- how happy you are to have me back at Forrester, the fact that you and I have always been able to relate so well. I can totally see his point.

Eric: Yeah, so do I. It can't be easy feeling like you're the odd man out in your own family. Fact is, I think he's felt that way his whole life, Ridge.

Ridge: Well, my personal opinion -- I think the reason Thorne is going through this now is because of Darla.


Darla: Hey, I thought I heard your voice.

Stephanie: Well, hi.

Darla: How are you doing? Good to see you.

Stephanie: Nice to see you always.

Darla: Thank you, thank you.

Stephanie: Where is my precious little girl?

Darla: I just put her down for a nap.

Stephanie: Oh.

Thorne: Well, stay for dinner. She'll be up again.

Darla: Yes.

Stephanie: I don't want to intrude.

Thorne: Mother --

Darla: Oh, please. Come on. We're just gonna put some burgers on the grill.

Stephanie: Burgers, huh? Cheese?

Thorne: Double.

Darla: Anything you want.

Stephanie: Why not?

Darla: I'm sure Alexandria would love hanging out with her Grams.

Stephanie: Oh?

Thorne: Mother just stopped by to talk about the board meeting.

Darla: Oh. You mean the one where Ridge dismissed everything you had to say even though you're the backbone of the company?

Thorne: Honey --

Stephanie: No, she's right. Don't think though that your efforts go unnoticed and unappreciated.

Thorne: Thank you.

Stephanie: You've made changes.

Darla: It wasn't easy, let me tell you.

Thorne: Lots of compromises.

Darla: Mm-hmm.

Stephanie: Well, that's what makes for a successful marriage.

[ Baby cries ]

Darla: Oops. I thought I had her down.

Thorne: I got her.

Darla: Thank you, baby. Thank you so much for stopping by. I know how much this means to Thorne.

Stephanie: It's been too long between visits. I'll change that, I promise.

Darla: We'd love that.

Thorne: Now, you're just not gonna go to sleep for Daddy, are you? No, you're not. Guess who's here? You're not gonna believe it. Look at that -- look who's here. Look! Daddy's little girl, yes you are.


Caitlin: Dad, college can wait.

Hector: Caitlin, you're in line for several scholarships.

Caitlin: And I won't need them. Aren't you listening to me? I'm gonna be designing and modeling, making real money. And I can pay for college, if that's what I want. And it is. It is what I want, eventually.

Hector: This could take over your life, Caitlin. Think about what you'll be missing out on.

Samantha: Hector, think about what she could be missing out on if she doesn't do it. This has been her dream since she was a little girl.

Hector: Exactly. It's a fantasy. And the reality could be entirely different.

Samantha: This business has been pretty good for me.

Hector: Well, you are the exception then. Think about -- think about Amber Forrester. There she was, a promising young designer. Forrester made her a star, right? And then they dropped her, just like that. And where is she now?

Caitlin: That's not gonna happen to me.

Hector: Catie, I know how excited you are about this. But I'm sorry, I can't feel good about it.


Eric: Darla?

Ridge: Don't get me wrong. She's been great for Thorne in a lot of ways.

Eric: Yeah, she has.

Ridge: Personally. Professionally? I can't help feeling like she's pushing him a little too hard, maybe into areas that he doesn't really have the expertise, you know? God knows she doesn't have it. I mean, what are we talking here? We're talking a former secretary of Spectra.

Megan: Oh, sorry. Am I interrupting?

Eric: No, no, it's all right. Megan, come in, come in.

Megan: I just had to tell you how gorgeous this invitation is.

Ridge: Oh, thank you, thank you. I rather like them, too.

Eric: Let me see that.

Ridge: Are you gonna come?

Megan: Are you kidding? I wouldn't miss it.

Ridge: Good. Good, good.

Megan: And let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

Ridge: All right.

Megan: Okay.

Ridge: Thank you, Megan. Is Mother coming?

Eric: I don't know. She was very hurt when you threw her out of your house.

Ridge: Yeah, did she tell you why I threw her out?

Eric: Yes, she was arguing with Brooke about your kids. I know.

Ridge: Yeah, only hours after telling me she's gonna keep the peace between the two of them.

Eric: Look, Ridge, I understand.

Ridge: I just can't have this continue, Dad. Brooke is gonna be my wife. She's gonna be a mother to my children.

Eric: Your Mother will accept it. Sooner or later, she will.

Ridge: Yeah, I don't know.

Eric: You gotta reach out to her, Ridge, one more time.

Ridge: I've tried, dad. I've tried every way I know.

Eric: Try again. Ridge --

Ridge: All right, all right.


Darla: Make way. Coming through for the world-famous Einstein iced tea.

Stephanie: Thank you.

Darla: You're very welcome. Are you hungry, my love? Let's go eat. Let's go eat. Thank you, Grams. Let's go eat, honey. Oh, thank you.

Stephanie: Thanks again for the tea.

Darla: Oh, you're welcome.

Stephanie: You're blessed. But you know that.

Thorne: Oh, yes. You know, coming home today, I was still pretty keyed up about the meeting. You know, I walked through that door, picked up my baby, and it's all gone. Nothing matters more than her.

Stephanie: When you were little, you kids had the same effect on me.

Thorne: You should call him.

Stephanie: Who?

Thorne: Ridge.

Stephanie: What's left to say?

Thorne: Plenty, Mother.

Stephanie: I've lavished enough attention on Ridge, don't you think? I'm sorry, Thorne.

Thorne: Mother, you know -- we don't have to go there.

Stephanie: Yes, we do. I do. I know you always thought he was my favorite. I know you thought that. It wasn't really that, it was --

[ Stephanie sighs ]

Stephanie:  you know, he was so reckless, with cars, with girls, with figures of authority. I -- I just worried. You know, every time the phone would ring, I thought, you know, "what's he done now? Has he gotten into an accident?" You were different. You didn't need me to be so protective and so vigilant.

Thorne: Maybe it didn't look that way.

Stephanie: Maybe that's just what I told myself. Thorne, I've relied on you and appreciated you much more than you know. More than I've ever said. And I may have given you less attention and less time, but I loved you just as much.

Darla: Hot stuff, coming through.

Stephanie: You are a Hottie, just like your mother.

[ Cell phone rings ]

Darla: Oh, Stephanie, I’ll take her. Come on, sweetie.


Stephanie: Got her? There you go. Hello?

Ridge: Cafe Russe. One hour, you and me.

Stephanie: Ridge, I'm not in the mood.

Ridge: Come on, Mother. You can't stay angry at me forever.

Stephanie: I'm not angry.

Ridge: Right. Can we just sit down and talk about all this?

Stephanie: At the Cafe Russe and not your home?

Ridge: Hey, you're welcome at my home anytime. If you behave. Where are you? I'll pick you up.

Stephanie: No, thank you.

Ridge: Mother --

Stephanie: I already have plans for the evening.

Ridge: All right. If that's the way you wanna play it --

Stephanie: Say hello to your children, please. Good-bye, Ridge.


Thorne: Mother, you don't have to stay if you don't want.

Stephanie: There isn't any place I'd rather be.


Caitlin: Dad, I'm not amber. She grew up without a foundation or a family, or even a father. I've got Martin Luther King, Ghandi and Mr. Mom rolled up into one.

Hector: Hey, sucking up won't help you here today.

Sam: I'll be right there with her.

Hector: Every minute?

Caitlin: You'll be with me every minute. All those things that you taught me, Dad, they're in my head. They're a part of me. I'm strong enough and mature enough, thanks to you, to handle anything that they throw at me. But I won't say yes unless I have your blessing. Because every fantasy that I've ever had about walking down that runway and hearing that applause, about accepting an award or seeing my designs on someone famous -- they all end with you telling me how proud of me you are. That's kinda the point.

Hector: Oh, Catie.

Caitlin: Tell me that you believe in me, Dad, that you trust me.

Sam: I promise you it will be all right.

Hector: Okay.

Caitlin: Really?!

Hector: If this is really what you want --

Caitlin: Oh, Dad, thank you! Thank you so much, Dad!
