Eric: Good, Luis. Thank you. Did you get that, eva?

Eva: Yes, mr. Forrester.

Eric: Yeah, okay.

Ridge: So, Dad, after we talked -- I decided to cover the bodice with the sequined fabric instead of the chiffon.

Eric: Good, good. It makes more of a statement that way. Although, I'm not really sure about --

Ridge: You don't like the square sequins?

Eric: No, I'm not sure. Maybe something like --

Ridge: I got this covered. What I thought we'd do is use the Payette’s, just in case the fabric's discontinued.

Eric: What's so funny?

Eva: You two, the way you're so in synch. Reading each other's minds.

Ridge: Well, we still make one hell of a team, don't we?

Eric: There you go.

Eva: Best in the business.

Eric: Well, everybody -- that's all for today. Thanks very much for your hard work.

Eva: Thank you.

Ridge: Eva, get those changes down to Josh and we'll be squared away.

Eva: I'm on it.

Ridge: Thank you.

Eric: It's ironic, isn't it?

Ridge: What's that?

Eric: What Eva just said. That must be what Thorne saw every time he came in here. The connection that you and I share.

Ridge: Oh, for god's sakes, Dad. Thorne's trying to sink us here and you're the one feeling guilty?

Eric: He's my son, Ridge.

Ridge: Yes, he is. And he also happened to be lucky enough to be born into a successful family. S spectra. I can't wait for him to fall on his face. You know what? He's not going to have us to blame for it, either.

Eric: Is that what you said to him?

Ridge: I know you'd rather hear me apologize for being born, but it really wouldn't matter what I said. Thorne's dug his heels in over at spectra. He's going to turn it into, let's see, how'd he put it -- "the preeminent fashion house in Los Angeles."

Eric: Thorne doesn't really think that he can outdo Forrester, does he?

Ridge: Practically guaranteed it.

Eric: Well, your mother went over there to talk some sense into him. Hopefully, she'll have more success than we did.


Thorne: I mean it, Mother. We're finished here.

Stephanie: No, we're not.

Thorne: Yes, we are. I have a lot of work to do.

Stephanie: What, to try and destroy your family business?

Thorne: You know, I'm really getting tired of hearing that word. All you and dad do is shove "family" in my face. And then you turn around and treat me like I'm not a part of it.

Stephanie: I know we made mistakes.

Thorne: But what? It's going to get better?

Stephanie: Yes.

Thorne: So if I come back to Forrester, you're going to reinstate me as president? Close the door on your way out.

Stephanie: I know you're angry and you have every right to be. But don't do this. Honey, look -- suppose you and I and your father, and ridge if you want -- suppose we go to therapy. Maybe we can work this all out. I just don't want you to shut us out.

Thorne: I'm only doing what was done to me.

Stephanie: Does hurting me and hurting your father really make you feel better?


Nick: Hold it, hold it. Wait a minute, wait a minute.

Felicia: What's wrong?

Nick: This is darts. It's not the shot-put. This is a finesse game. It's about the wrist -- I keep telling you -- the wrist has got to bend, you know. You gotta feel that thing -- flip it at the target over there, at the bulls --

Felicia: What now?

Nick: I'm not going to go through all of this and find out that you're the dart champion of the eastern hemisphere, am I?

Felicia: No. But I have been known to play a mean game of "pin the tail on the donkey."

Nick: Well, I'll make sure I don't turn my back on you. Keep your eye focused on the bull’s-eye. That's the key here -- focus. You've got to clear your head and concentrate, okay? Block everything else out around you.

Felicia: Well, I'm an expert on that. Or at least, I was.

Nick: You're talking about your doctor?

Felicia: It just hasn't sunk in yet.

Nick: You're cancer free, kid.

Felicia: It just sounds so strange to hear you say that.

Nick: Well, get used to it. You got a lot of livin' to do. You're a fearless tiger with her eye on the prize. And nothin's going to keep you from getting what you want if you let it go.

Nick: We are going to be the team to beat at Chuck's.

Felicia: Yes. So when am I going to get to see this haunt of yours?

Nick: Haunt? My friends hang out there. Just because it has peanut shells on the floor and smoke in the air and smells like stale beer -- haunt?

Felicia: Oh, that's my kind of place. So why aren't we there now?

Nick: Because I promised you a wonderful romantic evening. You got a problem with my boat?

Felicia: No, I actually happen to like the "shady marlin." It has --

Nick: Dry rot?

Felicia: No. Character, like its owner.

Nick: Hey, hey, hey. Easy with the paddle there, huh?

Felicia: I'm almost tempted to think you use it for that.

Nick: Why? Because I have a little bit of a weird sense of humor? Or because you don't think that I can play it?

Felicia: Hmm, both.

Nick: Well, here. Classically trained. Row row row your boat gently down the stream merrily merrily

merrily merrily life is but a dream

Nick: Hmm?

Felicia: Wow. Obviously, there's a lot about you I don't know.

Nick: Well, stick around.

Felicia: Well, I'll let you know. I'm used to pulling up stakes.

Nick: Well, you're not doing that anymore, remember?

Felicia: You heard the doctor. I have years of tests ahead of me.

Nick: So what?

Felicia: So, it's not like I can -- you know, I'm not out of the woods, yet.

Nick: You're afraid, aren't you?

Felicia: Of dying?

Nick: Of living.


Ridge: Dad, I really hate to shoot down your hopes here.

Eric: But?

Ridge: But Darla will win the Nobel Prize in physics before Mother's able to get through to Thorne.

Eric: Your mother has a way with Thorne.

Ridge: Not since you guys put the company back in my hands.

Eric: Why can't he see that that's in his best interests? Your mother and I gave the reins of this company back to you so that Forrester could be at the top of its game, so that you and Thorne could both have a future that you could count on.

Ridge: Yeah, well in his mind, that future's a lot brighter with him at the helm.

Eric: Yeah. Look, he's a novice in the executive suite and he has an untrained eye for talent. That sort of thing has to be nurtured over time.

Ridge: Oh, you heard him. He's acting like he's going to leave us in the dust.

Eric: Well, he's heading for a fall. Not a damn thing I can do about it, either. I have to sit back and watch it happen. Got to make it happen.

Ridge: What do you mean, "make it happen?"

Eric: This collection of ours has to blow sally spectra and everything she has right out of the water. It has to leave them battered and bleeding.

Ridge: What, just to make Thorne return to the fold?

Eric: Where he belongs, yeah. You disagree?

Ridge: It's one thing for a guy to want to make it on his own. It's quite another to declare war on his own family. But, personally, I think -- once you cross that line, Dad, there's no coming back.


Stephanie: This is all so negative. Thorne, whatever success that you have here -- if you do it at the expense of your family, are you going to actually be able to take pride in it?

Thorne: I think so.

Stephanie: There's not a vindictive bone in your body, Thorne. I know you. And I know you understand what that company means to your father. It's his life. He's put his blood, his sweat, his tears -- I mean, it's like a child to him.

Thorne: No, Mother. I'm his child. I am. Not some corporation.

Stephanie: Well, that corporation that you seem to dismiss so lightly has given you a career and given you a big paycheck, year in and year out. You don't seem to appreciate that.

Thorne: Appreciate? By the time I left there, my self worth was so small I couldn't find it anymore. So don't tell me what an ingrate I was for walking away. Or for what my standing up for myself is going to do for my father. Because I'm finished being the nice guy who comes in last, mother. Do you hear me? Those days are dead and they're gone. They're gone.

[ Grunting ]

Stephanie: Thorne, good guys do come in first. You know that.

Thorne: Not at Forrester. Not as long as Ridge is there.

Stephanie: Why does it have to be either you or Ridge?

Thorne: Because that's the standards that you and Dad set. That's they way it's always been and the way it always will be.

Stephanie: Then give us another chance and let us make it right.

Thorne: No.

Stephanie: Thorne, please --

Thorne: I'm not going to do it anymore, mother. All the concessions that I made? "You don't mind being in the basement, do you, Thorne?" "Congratulations, Mr. President, but do as your brother tells you to do." I was nothing but a doormat for Ridge. Well, no more, mother. Because, you see, I have a wife who believes in me and I have a daughter who deserves a father that she can be proud of and that she can respect and by god, she's going to get it. Because, you see, I have a gift that's just as valuable as Ridge's, if not more valuable. I inspire loyalty.

Stephanie: I know you do.

Thorne: Not to you and Dad, of course. But I did inspire loyalty to everyone that I worked with at Forrester, and I tell you what -- I'm going to inspire that loyalty right here, and respect. And that's what's going to make the difference. That's what's going to take me to the top.

Stephanie: Well, if it does, I hope it's everything that you want it to be.

Thorne: "If it does." Well, that sums it all up.

Stephanie: I'm sorry, I -- oh, Thorne, you're my sweet boy.

Thorne: I'm not your boy anymore, Mother.


Felicia: I know that's what you think.

Nick: It's nothing to be ashamed of, though. You know, I bet most people, at times in their life, are afraid of living. 'Cause you got to put yourself out there, maybe get hurt, and it takes a lot of guts to jump into that ocean.

Felicia: Especially when you never really learned to swim.

Nick: Which is why they make life preservers. Hmm? You know, these things.

Felicia: Mm-hmm.

Nick: Gives you something to hold onto while your getting the hang of it.

Felicia: I'm not ready for this.

Nick: Yeah. Sit down for a minute, will ya? Hmm? You know, the other day, at that doctor's office -- that was a big deal, you know? And I got back to the boat, here, and I just wrote a little something I'd like you to hear.

I saw the soldier passing by the tear from my eye was for you I walked beside my grave

it's not time to stay too much to do there's a voice inside that's calling me to you

we've got one life so let's take it 'cause we're running out of time

we've got one life and I'm prayin' we can leave the rest behind

and take what's yours and mine we can leave the rest behind

and take what's yours and mine

Felicia: I wish you wouldn't have done that.


Ridge: Well, that's very good to hear Josh. Thank you. A lot of buzz downstairs over the designs.

Eric: Good. Everybody's really getting on board.

Stephanie: Not everyone.

Ridge: See what I mean? Thorne's a brick wall.

Eric: Let's hear what happened, first.

Stephanie: It's useless, really. He's not going to budge.

Ridge: I guess we are going to have to hit this new collection out of the ballpark just to make him face reality.

Eric: Can we offer him a vice presidency?

Stephanie: Oh, Eric. You're going to insult him all over again?

Eric: It's a high-profile, respected position.

Stephanie: Eric, Eric. It's hard enough growing up to be the number two son your whole life, and then the number one son becomes the star designer. Please. We didn't help him very much, either.

Ridge: Okay, so the guy's got issues. Who doesn't? But if you're a mature adult, it doesn't mean you go looking for revenge.

Stephanie: That's not what this is about.

Ridge: Mother, what part of "you'll be sorry" didn't you understand?

Stephanie: Ridge, he's trying to get out from under a very long shadow and make his own mark.

Ridge: So, what? This is his way of coming into his own?

Stephanie: Of saving himself, I think.

Ridge: Well, it's too bad he picked the wrong path to salvation, isn't it? Spectra versus Forrester? There's no way he can win. I'm telling you right now, Thorne doesn't have a magic rabbit to pull out of any hat.


Thorne: You got it?

Luis: Yeah.

Thorne: These are the latest designs, right?

Luis: Your father and your brother just finished them.

Thorne: Perfect. Did you have any trouble with the scanner I gave you?

Luis: No.

Thorne: Good. I just didn't want you to have any trouble in the copy room with the surveillance cameras.

Luis: Thorne?

Thorne: Yeah?

Luis: Are you sure?

Thorne: Yes. But if you're not comfortable, I'll get somebody else to do this, Luis.

Luis: No. I owe you.

Thorne: No, you don't.

Luis: Yes. Speaking at my wife's funeral, helping with all those medical bills, coming to Joey's graduation --

Thorne: He's a good kid.

Luis: I just wish you and your father could work things out, and I think you could, too, if it weren't for Ridge.

Thorne: "If it weren't for Ridge." It's the story of my life, huh? I won't forget this, Luis.

Luis: Anything for you, kid.

Thorne: Thanks. Sally? We got our secret weapon. The beginning of the end for Forrester Creations.


Nick: You okay?

Felicia: It was beautiful. So why did you have to ruin a perfectly good, no strings relationship by singing it?

Nick: You know why.

Felicia: God, you're really starting to tick me off, Marone. You know, I had this whole thing worked out. You know, a world without commitment. I could come and go as I please, I don't have to worry about anybody, nobody has to worry about me, you know. And you had to come along, you know. You had to come along -- you know what? I'm not going to let you get to me. I'm not. I'm not going to give in --

Nick: Don't forget about your life preserver.

Felicia: You can't promise that I will survive this!

Nick: No, I can't. But I can have a heck of a time trying.

Felicia: Don't you get it? I was ready to go and I had made peace. This is all your fault. It is all your fault, Nick! That I don't want to die! I don't want to die. Nick, I don't want to die. I want to live.
