Stephanie: We have to do this as a family. And love is how we have to do it. Please? Please?

Nurse: Mr. Marone?

Nick: Yes?

Nurse: They just wrapped up your father's procedure.

Nick: How'd it go?

Nurse: You should speak with Dr. Ying directly.

Nick: Why? Is -- is he gonna be all right?

Nurse: The doctors are on their way.

****************************************************************************************************

Jackie: Oh! I have absolutely nothing to wear.

Deacon: Jackie, what the hell are you talking about? You got enough clothes here to dress half of Los Angeles. Here, what about this thing? This is nice.

Jackie: Nice?

[ Jackie chuckles ] That's got shoulder pads.

Deacon: Well, then, why do you still have it?

Jackie: Because everything comes back into fashion eventually. You've got a lot to learn, young man.

Deacon: Ah, so let me ask you a question -- you gonna teach me, huh?

Jackie: I think that you know me better than I know myself already.

********************************************************************************************************

Stephanie: If you walk away from me because of my mistakes, I can live with that. But I cannot let you turn away from one another. If you do that, then the very thing that you're fighting for, the family name, the family business -- it won't be worth having.

Ridge: Nothing means more to me than family, Mother -- including business.

Stephanie: Thank you, honey.

Thorne: Yeah. Thanks, man. Means a lot to me, too.

Ridge: I'm sorry if I came on too strong. That's just how I'm used to dealing with competition. But now, I've got to get used to the fact that my competition is also my brother. Hopefully, we can just forgive and forget, put it all behind us.

Thorne: And we can. And you won't regret it, okay? I'll make damn sure we differentiate spectra couture by Thorne Forrester, from personally meeting with our retailers, our promotional campaign --

Ridge: Wait a minute. What are you talking about? Spectra can't use the name Forrester.

Thorne: Ridge, you just said you wanted to put this mess behind you.

Ridge: Thorne, it's a business issue. It has nothing to do with us as brothers, but it's still an issue.

Thorne: What are you talking about? I thought you finally realized -- why are you so hung up on this, Ridge? It's my name. Even the founders have given me their blessing, which should tell you something.

Ridge: It tells me that I'm the only one around here able to separate business from family.

Eric: Ridge, Forrester Creations is a family business by definition. Your mother's right when she says that sometimes family takes precedence. Sacrifices have to be made for the family.

Ridge: Yeah, but if you keep doing that, there isn't going to be a business anymore.

Eric: That's not gonna happen.

Ridge: Look, I understand you're trying to make up for the favoritism. But you've already given Thorne our whole collection. You've given him a hell of a lot of publicity from the showdown. At what point do you just say, "enough"?

********************************************************************************************

Nick: Doctor. Hi.

Dr. Whittman: Hi.

Nick: How'd it go?

Dr. Whittman: Your father's resting now.

Nick: The procedure -- how do you feel it went?

Dr. Ying: We will run an MRI later to see if there's any visible change in his brain wave activity.

Nick: Is there usually?

Dr. Ying: As you know, this procedure is still in its nascent phase. Every patient has responded differently, thus far. But, I must warn you, his condition may remain the same.

Nick: Thanks. Thank you.

Dr. Whittman: Your father should be back soon. It's good you're here. You can help keep his spirits up.

Nick: There's nowhere I'd rather be.

*******************************************************************************************

Jackie: It is so strange.

Deacon: What's that?

Jackie: The crazy way that we just fell into each other's lives. Not exactly a storybook romance, hmm?

Deacon: Well, Jackie, I've always thought it was kind of boring, playing by the book.

Jackie: Yeah. Yeah, you taught me that.

Deacon: I know I did.

Jackie: I don't mean that.

Deacon: I know what you mean.

Jackie: Yeah. I wanted so desperately to live by the rules.

Deacon: Massimo's rules.

Jackie: Well, they were mine, too. You meet a prince, you fall in love with a prince and then you live happily ever after.

Deacon: And now?

Jackie: Now I realize that you can't force yourself into a role. You taught me that, Deacon. You taught me that. How you made me feel so comfortable in my own skin.

***********************************************************************************

Eric: You're confusing the issue here, Ridge.

Ridge: And how is that?

Eric: Trademark infringement's a very serious issue, I'll grant you that. But Thorne is not some random "Forrester" out of the phone book. We wouldn't be giving him anything, we'd be letting him use what's rightfully his.

Darla: The Forrester name.

Ridge: It's not just a name, Darla. It's a trademark. Forrester on a Spectra label? You've already got your name all over the spectra press releases, Thorne. On all the news coverage. You've leveraged the name just about as much as you can.

Thorne: Because it's my right, Ridge, like dad said.

Ridge: You cannot use our brand name. Not at the expense of this company.

Eric: Look, he's as -- he's as responsible for the success of this company as anybody else.

Ridge: Nobody's disputing that, dad. But he works at spectra now. This is not just gonna benefit him. It's gonna benefit Sally, Clarke, Amber.

Brooke: Ridge is willing to make concessions.

Darla: What, by letting retailers decide whether they're going to carry Spectra or not? That doesn't sound like a concession to me.

Brooke: It's still a risk, Darla, given spectra's history. But it's one Ridge is willing to take for his brother.

Thorne: Don't do me any favors.

Brooke: But you are asking us for an exception, aren't you? I thought you wanted to build a company on your own merit.

Thorne: And with my name. Now, I don't see that a handout, Brooke. I see that as my birthright. When you sign your name on your designs, it's more than a signature, isn't it, Ridge? It's a symbol of pride in your work, in your family name. Well, now I finally have that, too. And I am damn proud to have my name on spectra couture. And I want to make my family proud. And I sure as hell don't think that I have to do it on your terms. And I'm not going to, Ridge.

Ridge: Thorne, you don't have to have your name on the label to make us proud of you. It's a nice thought, but you're blurring the line again.

Thorne: Ridge, you're the one drawing the line in the sand. If it weren't for you, this wouldn't even be an issue.

Ridge: Fine, I'll have our lawyers call yours.

Eric: You'll do no such thing.

Ridge: Well, dad, how do you propose we settle this, then? We're obviously at an impasse.

Eric: I am the CEO of this company. So I will settle this. Your mother and I've spent many, many long hours and years making this company into the success it is today. Expressly for the purpose of creating a legacy for all of my children. Now, Thorne has chosen a different path, but I think it's only fair that I give him the same preferential treatment that I've given my other two sons who work here at this company.

Ridge: Preferential?

Eric: Yeah. Ridge, you started out in the executive suite. So did Rick. Because of your last names. I think that Thorne should be allowed to use his name in making his mark, as well. I would take great pride in having the world know that my son is behind the success at spectra.

Brooke: So you're saying?

Eric: The name stays.

Darla: Thank you, Eric.

Thorne: Yes, thank you, dad.

Stephanie: Ridge, honey, this is really the best thing for the family. It is.

Eric: Look, I understand your concerns, but a name is not going to sink Forrester. A few bad designs might, but we don't have to worry about that.

Ridge: Of course you don't have to worry. Because I've taken care of everything so you won't have to. I have been busting my hump for years, trying to protect this company. I have taken your L.A. Design house and turned it into an international conglomerate, Dad. They're going to profit off of my hard work.

Eric: I'm well aware of your contributions to this company's success.

Ridge: You and I have both put our heart and souls into this company. But all that's gonna go up in smoke, right here and now, if we keep operating this company like some kind of family therapy session! You've left me no choice then.

*********************************************************************************************

Jackie: Thanks.

Deacon: Are you okay?

Jackie: Um, a little nervous.

Deacon: First day of work and everything, huh?

Jackie: It's ridiculous, I feel like a schoolgirl.

Deacon: You don't still have that outfit, do you? Come on, lighten up. Trust me, you are gonna rock.

Jackie: I do trust you, Deacon. It's a good thing, really, isn't it? Seeing you're the only person that I can depend on now.

Deacon: Most people would consider that a pretty frightening prospect.

Jackie: Thank you, Deacon. Thank you for being there for me.

Deacon: Come here.

Jackie: I love you.

Deacon: Say that again?

Jackie: I've fallen in love with you.

Massimo: You have every right to wear this ring. My son.

Nurse: Look who's here.

Nick: Hey! Hey, you are lookin' good. Doesn't he look good?

Nurse: Wonderful.

Nick: Yes, sir. Did you hear that? Even the nurse said you look great. Now that all this procedure's over, you can start feeling as good as you look.

 Nick: How you feeling? That good, huh? Well, the worst is over. No more pain. That's why I okayed this procedure. It's risky, but that's what we believe in. High risk, high reward, right? Now don't let this get to your head, but I look up to you. Because you face any challenge, whether it's taking on a fleet of tankers or finding out you've got some new screwball son. Look at me. I go from the barroom floor to the executive suite. And you know why? Because of you. I need you so much. That's right. That's it. I know you're in there. What is it? Tell me, what is it? Talk to me. What do you need? Tell me. What? What?

Massimo: Ri -- ri --

Nick: Your ring?

Massimo: Ring.

Nick: You want your ring?

Massimo: Ring.

Nick: You want your ring?

Massimo: Ring.

Nick: It's right here. It's right here. Look! Look! Look! It's right here. It's right here. It's right here.

*************************************************************************************************************

Brooke: Losing yourself in your work?

Ridge: You could say that.

Brooke: Your father's just trying to balance things out, you know. For bumping Thorne from this office.

Ridge: I know dad feels guilty. But it's gotten out of hand, Logan.

Brooke: Maybe a little.

Ridge: This is no way to run a business, and you know it. Dad's just looking for a quick fix to make up for the so-called "favoritism." There's no magic bullet here. It takes time to heal. And I can't let him sacrifice this company in the process.

Brooke: But he's already made his decision.

Ridge: My father is a good man, he's got a big heart and lots of talent --

Brooke: But --

Ridge: When it comes to running this company, he's not able to make the tough decisions that need to be made.

Brooke: Well, that's why you two make a good team. You complement one another.

Ridge: We used to. Dad doesn't get the big picture anymore. He doesn't realize the problems this could cause. For all we know, spectra could tank and end up dragging Forrester down in the mud with it. I'm not gonna let that happen. We're building a stronger legacy here at Forrester, now, and I'm gonna make damn sure we protect it. Not just for me, for our kids.

Brooke: How do you plan on doing that?

Ridge: Dad's days of running this company are over, Logan. I'm drafting an order instating myself as CEO of Forrester Creations.
