Brooke: Maybe we should go down and take a swim.

Ridge: Maybe later.

Brooke: Ridge, we both feel bad about Thorne.

Ridge: He was the one that wanted mother and dad to choose.

Brooke: But you can't feel bad because they chose you.

Ridge: No, I don't. I don't. I just wish it hadn't come down this way.

Brooke: It was bound to happen, given the way he was acting. It's probably better he's not at Forrester right now.

Ridge: He's going to be hard to replace. What he said about the production staff -- it's true. Nobody knows them the way he does.

Brooke: He'll be missed.

Ridge: His antics won't. Mother and dad definitely made the right choice.


Stephanie: Eric, we've made a terrible mistake.

Eric: Who could ever have anticipated that he would react that way? Well, we're just gonna have to give some time to calm down, and then we'll talk to him.

Sally: Oh, no, you won't.

Eric: How did you get in here, Sally?

Sally: I told Megan that I had a message for you from Thorne. She seemed to think you'd be anxious to get it.

Stephanie: Well, of course we are.

Sally: Sorry I have to tell you this, highness, but I don't think Thorne has much of anything to say to you.

Stephanie: So you talked to him?

Sally: No. I listened. Which is more than you people did.

Stephanie: Sally, is he all right?

Sally: Oh, now you care about him?

Stephanie: Well, of course we do.

Sally: Oh, really? Well, where was all that concern when you were kicking him out on his ear?

Eric: We didn't kick him out, Sally.

Sally: Yes, you did, Eric. You gave him the bum's rush and you gave his job to Ridge.

Stephanie: Oh, Sally -- this was a really difficult decision.

Eric: Darling, we do not owe her any explanations. Sally, this is a family problem.

Sally: Thorne is part of my family, too, you know.

Eric: Look, we're not interested in your opinion.

Sally: I don't care. You're going to get it anyway. So you might as well shut up and listen. When a son of yours grows up to be exactly the man you taught him to be, you ought to reward him for that. What you should not do is punish him by handing the reins to the family business over to his troublemaking, illegitimate brother.


Thorne: I'm sorry. I can't believe I left you at the office.

Darla: I'm glad you did. It gave me a chance to talk to with your parents.

Thorne: Well, I'm not going back there.

Darla: Thorne, they felt awful.

Thorne: Not enough to get rid of Ridge. I made the right decision.

Darla: I know how disappointed you must be, honey.

Thorne: I was at first. Then I realized I never stood a chance.

Darla: That made you feel better?

Thorne: I'm free.

Darla: Well, your job at Forrester wasn't exactly a burden, you know. It was an honor.

Thorne: Yeah, an honor my parents thought I didn't deserve. I've spent my whole life trying to earn my family's respect. And what did it get me?

Darla: If Ridge hadn't come back --

Thorne: Then I never would've realized the truth, Darla. All the values that my parents taught me, all that garbage about family unity and honor, putting the family first -- that means nothing to me.

Darla: Those values are what made you the man that I love. You are the most honest, incredible, decent, beautiful human being, Thorne Forrester. And your parents, that may not mean a lot to them. But it means the world to me, and your daughter.


Amber: You didn't leave.

Thomas: Did you really want me to? Don't answer that.

Amber: Thomas, those things I said --

Thomas: No, don't worry about it.

Amber: Yeah, but you've been so nice to me. I shouldn't have --

Thomas: I understand why you did.

Amber: Maybe I was wrong. Maybe you're too mature for me.

Thomas: I've definitely learned a lot these last few weeks.

Amber: I wish I could tell you it gets better when you get older.

Thomas: Well, you know what they say. If at first you don't succeed


Eric: Sally, Ridge is my son just as much as Thorne is. I raised them both.

Sally: Yeah, but you didn't raise them in exactly the same way, did you, Eric? Ridge was always your pet. He was your star. You gave him all of your enthusiasm. All of your admiration. What did Thorne get? Huh? He got a lot of speeches about family loyalty and hard work.

Stephanie: Well, they're very different people.

Sally: They're the people you made them.

Eric: Honorable, dedicated, talented men.

Sally: Well, where's the honor in humiliating one of them?

Eric: Sally, we understand the situation, all right? We're dealing with it.

Sally: How? By sitting around, scratching your heads, wondering what happened? If it was me, I'd be over at Thorne's place right now pounding on the door, begging him to come back.

Stephanie: Sally, do you think he would?

Sally: I don't know. I really get the impression that he doesn't want to have anything to do with you people ever again.


Thorne: I want to be the kind of man that you and Alexandria are proud of.

Darla: We are so proud of you.

Thorne: Even after what happened today?

Darla: Your parents made a mistake. What they did to you, Thorne, was horrible. And I know they're going to regret it.

Thorne: You bet they are. My father was just trying to patronize me, talking about how much they need me and that I'm the lynchpin of their success. He's going to see -- they are all gonna see -- how true that really was.

Darla: I thought you said you're not going back.

Thorne: Oh, I'm not. Not even if they offered me CEO.

Darla: So what are you gonna do?

Thorne: I'm going to do what they'd least expect. Because, you see, I am tired of being the nice guy. Because nice guys finish last. Well, that's not me anymore. I'm going to make my own success on my own terms.

Darla: That's right. You are not going to let this setback defeat you.

Thorne: No, honey, this is not a setback. This is a wake-up call and it's one that I've needed for a long time. I've never felt more energized. Like this huge weight has just come off of my shoulders. There's nothing holding me back. There is no limit to what I can do.

Darla: There is nothing you can't do. I believe in you.

Thorne: You know, it might take some time. It may take a lot of time.

Darla: We'll get through it.

Thorne: No. We're gonna do better than that, honey. We're gonna come out on top. And I guarantee you, my family will never underestimate me again.


Brooke: I feel bad for Thorne, but I feel even worse for your parents.

Ridge: I just wonder how I'd feel if Thomas and the girls were going at it like that.

Brooke: Do you think we should talk to them? The press is going to make this look like a coup.

Ridge: I don't want him to be blindsided at work tomorrow.

Brooke: You should call him.

Ridge: He's not here?

Brooke: No, the girls said they haven't seen him since this afternoon.

Ridge: He should have left us a message. We need to know where he is.

[ Phone ringing ]

Thomas: Hey, dad.

Ridge: Thomas, where are you?

Thomas: Out. I'll be home in a while.

Ridge: You tell me where you are now or you can just come home, okay?

Thomas: Dad, I'm kinda in the middle of something.

Ridge: With that girl? The one who brought you home? Put her on the phone.

Thomas: No way.

Ridge: Thomas, I'm not kidding. You get your butt back in this house now.

Amber: Your dad wants you to come home?

Thomas: Yep. But he's just gonna have to wait 'cause I have got other plans.


Thorne: Sally.

Sally: Hello, Thorne. You all right?

Thorne: I'm fine.

Sally: Where's Darla?

Thorne: She's taking a walk on the beach.

Sally: There's no emergency? Listen, I will have you know that I was really enjoying reading the riot act to your parents like they've never had it read to them before --

Thorne: You're going to love this even more. I've got a proposition for you.

Brooke: Thomas hung up on you?

Ridge: Yeah, he sure did. That car has GPS on it. The company should be able to track it. Hello. This is Ridge Forrester. Account number 4599. No, I'm not reporting a stolen car. My son has taken the car. It's the GS400. Malibu? No, I don't need directions. I know exactly where it is. Thank you very much. They're out at the beach house. And I can pretty much guess what they're doing, too.

Brooke: You don't think --

Ridge: I got to put a stop to this right now.


Thomas: Now, where were we?

Amber: Thomas. I appreciate what you're trying to do. I really do.

Thomas: Is it working?

Amber: I'm touched. I mean, you're a sweet kid.

Thomas: Oh, please, don't start that again.

Amber: Oh, I know you don't want to hear it. But it's gonna keep coming up. We can't ignore it.

Thomas: Sure we can.

Amber: Thomas, you think this is what you want. But it's not. Not really. Getting mixed up with me is just going to lead you to nothing trouble.

Thomas: Not if nobody knows about it.

Amber: Your dad's gonna want to know where you were tonight.

Thomas: Now let me worry about that. Amber, I know you're scared. And I don't blame you. My family hasn't been great to you the last couple of years. But don't tell me we can't do this because you're too old or I'm too young. In case you haven't noticed, I've had to grow up pretty fast since my mom died.

Amber: I know. Can't imagine she'd be too happy about this.

Thomas: She liked you. A lot. She was an excellent judge of character.

Amber: Yeah. She was awesome. There's so much of her in you. But if she saw this, she'd probably diagnose me as some kind of pervert.

Thomas: You're so wrong. She was a world-famous psychiatrist. I mean, she spent most of her career analyzing how people relate, and writing articles about it. And you know what she came up with? Zip. There's no formula. Sometimes people connect because they've got everything in common and sometimes opposites attract. It's different for everybody. Some of the greatest lovers of all time had the whole world against them.

Amber: Thomas, we're not lovers.

Thomas: Not yet.


Sally: You said "proposition." You mean you want to make me some kind of offer?

Thorne: Actually I want to take you up on yours. Something you said earlier. That I could be part of your family. Did you mean that personally or professionally?

Sally: Both.

Thorne: So if there were an opening at spectra --

Sally: Whoa! You asking me for a job?

Thorne: Well, I'm not going back to Forrester.

Sally: Yeah, well, I understand that. But to come to work for the competition, that would drive your family crazy.

Thorne: Especially if we were more successful than they were.

Sally: Which, of course, we might very well be. Given my flair for publicity and your years of success in business and expertise.

Thorne: I can give you more than that, Sally. A lot more.


Eric: Thorne is so hurt and so furious. How are we ever going to get him back? Especially with Sally over there egging him on. And Darla, too.

Stephanie: They're just a piece of the problem. I don't know. God. Maybe if we'd focused on him right from the beginning, we wouldn't be in this mess. I don't know.


Sally: Think for a minute, Thorne. You are a seasoned executive with years of experience in the rag trade. You let it be know that you're going to throw your hat in the ring, and you could start a bidding war. Any fashion house in the world would be interested.

Thorne: I don't want to work for just any fashion house, Sally. I want to work for yours.

Sally: Why?

Thorne: Do I have to spell it out?

Sally: What do you have in mind?

Thorne: Success. Beyond your wildest dreams.

Sally: Okay. And what happens if your parents come around and beg your forgiveness?

Thorne: Oh, I'm sure they will.

Sally: Will you be able to keep your eye on the prize then?

Thorne: Prize? Sally, you know better. Pirates hunt for treasure.

Sally: Indeed they do, my fine Buckaneer. Indeed they do. So, why not, hmm? Let us weigh anchor and load the guns. The good ship spectra is about to set sail. Welcome aboard, matey.


Thomas: Go on, admit it. You're impressed.

Amber: Maybe a little.

Thomas: I know a lot more than you give me credit for.

Amber: Not enough to stay away from me.

Thomas: And why would I do that?

Amber: Hmm, let's think about this one. I have no job, no money, no prospects. And the way Rick feels about me, I will be out of this house before we know it.

Thomas: No. This is my mom's house. You can stay as long as you want.

Amber: I'm so sorry, Taylor. I'm trying to convince him. He just won't give up.

Thomas: You're right. I won't. No matter what you say, I'm gonna be right here.

Amber: Bugging the heck out of me?

Thomas: Who you kidding? You love it. C'mon, admit it.

Amber: I like having you around.

Thomas: And?

Amber: And I like giving you a hard time.

Thomas: And?

Amber: I like knowing somebody believes in me.

Thomas: Well, then, you should put this on. So you never forget. Looks great.

Amber: Thank you.

Ridge: Thomas Forrester. I know you're in here. You've never been in so much trouble in your life.

Amber: Shh, shh, shh. Did you hear something?

Ridge: Thomas! Get out of the bed. Both of you. Get out of the bed!

Thomas: Dad, what are you doing?

Ridge: It's time to go home. Whoever you are, get out of the bed!
