Clarke: We have a showing that's about to start, okay? Enough of this heart-to-heart.

Thorne: All right, Mother, just so we're clear, are you offering me my job back?

Stephanie: Yes.

Clarke: Which job? Are you going to make him president?

Stephanie: Clarke, will you leave us alone, please, just for a moment?

Thorne: No, I want to hear the answer myself, Mother. Are you offering me president of Forrester Creations?

Stephanie: Well, we haven't had an official discussion about the title, but we can work out anything that would make you --

Thorne: So that's a no?

Stephanie: It's not a no.

Thorne: Whatever spin you and dad and ridge are planning on coming up with, it's not going to work. Senior vice-president, executive bean counter, it's the same damn thing. You can't top what sally's offered me. You can't even match it. So if you'll excuse me, I have a preview to run.

Clarke: Nice try, though. "A" for effort.


Thomas: What are -- what are you talking about?

Rick: Dude, you got scratches all over your back.

Caitlin: Yeah, it's like you messed with a naughty kitty or something.

Rick: What happened?

Thomas: Oh. I know. I went hiking with a bunch of friends in Malibu Canyon yesterday. Guess I should've stuck to the path.

Rick: That's why you don't try and tan what mother nature intended to stay pasty white.

Caitlin: You're mean.

Rick: Oh, he can take it. What else are stepbrothers for?

Caitlin: For throwing in the pool, if you keep that up.

Rick: Oh, right, he's going to throw me in the pool. I'm scared.

Caitlin: I might. It was already my turn. It's your turn now.

Rick: Oh, I see.

Eric: What -- could I have one of those? This one? Yeah, it's very good. You're right. Thank you.

Hope: Where's Stephanie?

Eric: Where's Stephanie? She's visiting your uncle Thorne.

Brooke: I'm surprised you haven't heard from her yet.

Ridge: Think she stayed to watch the preview?

Eric: Well, if she got through to Thorne, hopefully, there won't even be a preview.


Thorne: Okay, everyone ready for an incredible showing?

[ Cheers and applause ]

Darla: Clarke, Clarke, Clarke. Okay, hold on a minute. It's Sally.

Clarke: Sally, how's it going?

Darla: Hey, honey, how did it go with your mom?

Employee: Mr. Forrester.

Thorne: I'll tell you about it later, all right?

Darla: Okay.

Clarke: No, no, no, we wish you were here, too.

[ Everyone saying hello to sally ] You hear that? Okay, we're about ready to get started. I'll tell you what, this Forrester boy really knows how to put on a show.

Thorne: You ain't seen nothing yet.


Jarrett: Jackie Marone!

Jackie: Oh, Jarrett, how are you?

Jarrett: Don't tell me Fenmore's is carrying Thorne's line?

Jackie: I haven't made any commitments, actually, one way or the other.

Jarrett: Well, that means you haven't made any commitments to Forrester either. Keeping your options open?

Jackie: I'm here to support Thorne.

Jarrett: Yes, what is the story there? I can understand him leaving Forrester after he lost his title, but to go to spectra? Mr. All-business button-down.

Jackie: Well, I think Thorne may surprise us all.


Employee: Just one or two minor adjustments, and we're ready to go.

Thorne: All right, let's get them going. Fast. Where's Clarke? We're about to start.

Darla: Honey, wait, wait. Hold on one second. Are you sure about this?

Thorne: Yes, I am.

Darla: Yeah.

Thorne: Look, they don't know who I am, Darla. They're over there telling themselves that they're better off without me. Well, maybe I should be able to live with that, but I can't. They need to know.

Darla: Okay. I'm with you all the way.

Thorne: It's the only reason why I can do this.

Darla: Oh, baby.

[ Applause ] Oh. Clarke's out there.

[ Applause ]

Clarke: Thank you, and welcome. I see a lot of new faces here today. But whether you're here for the first time or you're an old friend, you're all new to spectra, because Spectra is being reborn. Now I want to take a moment here to personally thank the man who is single handedly responsible for ushering in a new era at this company. From now on, when you think of spectra, you will think of world-class elegance, the finest fabrics known to man and a name -- Thorne Forrester.

[ Applause ] Clarke: Yes! And you should applaud, because he has been an unsung hero up until now. But you are about to witness what I have known for a very long time -- that he is the most exciting, the most dynamic, the most talented leader in fashion today. Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you Spectra Couture by Thorne Forrester!

[ Applause ]

Jackie: Way to go, Thorne.

Clarke: Thorne?

Thorne: They're holding back.

Darla: They look a little stunned.

Clarke: Oh, certainly. I mean, whatever they were expecting, it wasn't this. Forrester-level chic.

Thorne: Well, we'll just have to wait till the end, okay? Because the applause won't lie.


Thomas: So Caitlin, how's school going?

Caitlin: It's okay.

Thomas: Just okay?

Caitlin: Yeah. Well, it's a little different this year. I mean, I'm only there half the time because of work, and everybody knows the Ingénue line and the modeling. So they're, you know --

Thomas: Treating you different.

Caitlin: Yeah. But it'll be okay. They'll figure out I'm the same geek I've always been.

Rick: You know, she does have enough credits that she could graduate early.

Caitlin: Yeah, but I don't want to miss senior year though.

Thomas: Yeah, that's when all the good stuff happens -- prom, homecoming, senior ditch day.

Caitlin: Yeah, homecoming dance is next month. I get to wear one of the dresses from the Ingénue line. But I have to make sure I can dance in it for the dance contest.

Rick: You're going to be in a dance contest?

Caitlin: No, not me -- we.

[ Thomas laughs ] What?

Thomas: Have you seen Rick dance?

Rick: You know, Caitlin, you mentioned homecoming, but --

Caitlin: No, it's okay, we don't have to enter the contest. Maybe we'd better not. We can just go to the dance.

Rick: I didn't realize that you were expecting me to take you.

Caitlin: Well, yeah, who else is going to take me? You are my boyfriend.

Thomas: Okay, so I'm gonna get some more lemonade.

Caitlin: What's wrong?

Rick: Caitlin, as much as I'd like to, I can't take you to homecoming.

Caitlin: You made other plans?

Rick: No, it just -- it just wouldn't work out. Trust me.

Caitlin: It's just a dance.

Rick: A high school dance.

Caitlin: Oh.

Rick: I just -- I don't belong there. You know, it would get a lot of people talking about our private lives. You should just go with your friends.

Caitlin: All my friends have dates.

Rick: I'm sorry. I didn't know that this meant so much to you. And I wish things could have been different.

Caitlin: No, no, it's okay. I understand. I mean, it's just a dance, right?

Thomas: Here, Caitlin, you want some more lemonade?

Caitlin: Oh, thanks, Thomas, because my throat was so dry.


Stephanie: Oh, a pool party? So is this Brooke's idea of family crisis management?

Ridge: No, mother, it's mine. Thought the family needed some time to relax and have fun. There is no crisis, despite what Thorne wants us to believe.

Eric: Did you see him?

Stephanie: Yes.

Eric: What happened?

Stephanie: He told me that he's going to do what he feels is best for himself and his career.

Ridge: Oh, please. That's just a pathetic attempt to get attention.

Eric: Well, what are you saying -- are you saying they're going ahead with the Spectra Preview?

Stephanie: "Spectra Couture, by Thorne Forrester." That's what they're going to call it.

Eric: You know, we better get over there. We better see what's going on.

Ridge: I'm staying right here. I don't need to see his preview in person. Just reading about him tanking tomorrow in the trades is good enough for me.


[ Applause ]

Jackie: I can't believe it.

Jarrett: I know just how you feel, Jackie. This really is couture. I never would have expected it. Who knew?

[ Applause ]

Jackie: Would you excuse me?

Jarrett: Well, hurry back. Who knows what you might miss.


Brooke: Stephanie. Nice to see you.

Stephanie: Thank you, Brooke.

[ Cell phone rings ]

Eric: Jackie? Hello?

Jackie: Eric, I'm at Spectra.

Eric: Ah. So how is the spectra preview going?

[ Applause ] That well, huh?

Jackie: But there's a reason for that. I mean, the gowns, they're stunning. They're fabulous. They're absolutely a-list! But they are also --

Eric: They're also what?

Jackie: They're yours, Eric. He's stolen your designs.

Eric: What?!

Jackie: I recognize them from the sketches that I saw in your office the other day. They are exactly the same.

Eric: Are you absolutely sure about this, Jackie?

Jackie: Well, you tell me. Here's what's on the runway right now. Turquoise, asymmetrical, empire bodice with beads on one shoulder.

Eric: Oh, my god. Thank you, Jackie.

Brooke: What's wrong, Eric?

Eric: I knew Thorne was upset about this, that he felt we had sold him out, but for him to do this -- it's one thing for him to work at spectra, but for him to steal --

Stephanie: Steal? Steal what?

Eric: Our collection!

Brooke: Oh, my god.

Ridge: What did Jackie tell you?

Eric: Spectra -- spectra is previewing our collection right now! Look, Jackie was in our office a couple of days ago. She saw all of our drawings, and now she's seeing them again -- on the Spectra runway!

Brooke: It's so hard to believe that Thorne would do something like that.

Ridge: Yeah, well, I believe it.

Stephanie: Just a moment now. Let's not jump to any conclusions.

Ridge: Maybe it's time we all just go over there and see for ourselves.

Stephanie: All right, let's go. You come with your father and me.

Eric: Ricky, get back to the office. I want you to run damage-control.


Rick: Okay, okay, I'm on it. Look, Caitlin, I'm really sorry. Can you make sure that she gets home okay?

Thomas: Yeah, you got it.

Rick: All right, thanks.

Brooke: Do you want me to come with you?

Ridge: No, it's all right. You stay here with the kids. I'll call you as soon as I can.

Brooke: Just don't do anything that you're going to regret.

Ridge: Thorne is the one that will have the regrets.


Darla: Clarke, the show's not even over yet.

Clarke: Why wait? We're a smash!

[ Applause ] Did you hear that? Well, that's the sweetest sound in the world! God, how I missed that one. Come on, everybody. We're going to make a toast to the success of Thorne Forrester. Come on, everybody get a glass.

Darla: I bet I know what you're thinking.

Thorne: You usually do.

Darla: I bet you're thinking that all of this in here and all of that out there means the end of things for you and your parents. There's no going back.

Thorne: I don't need to go back.

Darla: Sweetie, but you love them, and you didn't do this to hurt them. I just don't think they're going to understand that.

Thorne: Well, I did what I had to do. And whatever they want to throw at me, I'm ready.

Jarrett: Thank heavens. You don't want to miss the showstopper.

[ Applause ]

Unforgettable that's what you are

Darla: "Unforgettable"?! Ridge and Booke's song?

Thorne: I couldn't resist.

Unforgettable though near or far like a song of love that clings to me

Jarrett: I'd like to see Forrester Creations top that.

Jackie: I'm not sure they can.

Never before has someone been more unforgettable in every way

[ Applause ]


Thomas: I'm really sorry about what happened today.

Caitlin: Well, that's okay. It was a fashion emergency, literally. I can just come swimming another time.

Thomas: No, no, I'm talking about the homecoming dance. I mean, you really wanted to go, right?

Caitlin: Not that much. I mean, I can understand why Rick wouldn't feel comfortable there, so --

Thomas: Yeah, but you should still go.

Caitlin: By myself?

Thomas: I'd go with you.

Caitlin: You would?

Thomas: Sure.

Caitlin: I can't believe you'd do that for me, Thomas. After I --

Thomas: What can I say? I'm a good loser.

Caitlin: You're not a loser. But I think I'm just going to skip the dance.

Thomas: That's too bad. We would have kicked butt in that dance contest.


[ Applause ]

Clarke: Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you. But here is the one who made it all possible. Ladies and gentlemen, Thorne Forrester!

[ Cheers and applause ]

Thorne: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. But this has -- this has truly been a group effort. And you'd all be very surprised to learn exactly how many people it took to make this collection a success. I'd like to thank my wife and everyone here for welcoming me into the spectra family, because that's what it is. The loyalty that Clarke and sally have won from everyone here, including myself, is truly inspirational. And I think today, we proved that our family, Spectra Couture, can compete with the best and the biggest fashion houses in the world.

[ Applause ] So this is just the beginning, folks. Again, thank you very much.

[ Cheers and applause ]

[ Cheers and applause ]

Darla: You're wonderful, wonderful. Oh, sweetie, you're a big star. The whole world's gonna --

Ridge: You're not the star, you're a damn thief!

Darla: Oh! Oh, stop it! Let go! Ridge, stop it!

Ridge: You stole those designs, and you're gonna pay for it! Big mistake, little brother! Big mistake!
