Brooke: Did you get any sun?

Bridget: I got the last rays before the sun went down. I realize now how much I took the L.A. Weather for granted.

Brooke: Yes, I know. You get spoiled, growing up here in L.A. Spending winter afternoons by the pool.

Bridget: Business parties at beach bars. I'm gonna go change out of my suit.

Brooke: Bridget, I saw you watching Ridge with me earlier. And I know what you were thinking.

Bridget: You do?

Brooke: You're upset that we're going to Jackie M's party. Because Deacon's throwing it.

Bridget: You thought I'd have an issue with that? No. I got over that a long time ago.

Brooke: Still, it must be hard seeing someone you used to love with somebody else. Brings back all the feelings that you thought you buried. It's gotta be very unsettling.

Ridge: What's unsettling? The fact that we're going to a business function half-naked? Deacon hosting the party? Great.

Brooke: Yeah.

Ridge: What?

Brooke: We were just talking about him.

Ridge: It's gonna be weird for you, huh?

Bridget: No, not for me. No, seriously, guys, it's not that big of a deal.

Ridge: On the other hand, there may be something to be said for going to the party, letting him see he doesn't get to you anymore. Close that chapter of your life forever. So what do you think? Are you ready to do that?

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

Deacon: The Spectra gang has arrived. Good to see you, buddy.

Thorne: Well, we're not all here yet.

Darla: Oh, have you seen Sal and Clarke?

Jackie: Yeah, yeah. They're right over there.

Darla: Great.

Clarke: Sally, it's night time. You don't need to wear sunglasses.

Sally: Listen, since I am now the undisputed queen of haute couture on the west coast, the least anyone can do is excuse my eccentricities.

Clarke: Well, they're not gonna excuse it for long if our sales don't improve.

Sally: Oh, please. Now that we've finally gotten Thorne's name out there, with a bigger splash than anyone ever dreamed of --

Clarke: With that ever-growing "Forrester" name on that label?

Sally: You'll see, bucky. Things are definitely gonna pick up.

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

Eric: Jimmy, there you are. I didn't know you were coming. Hi. Sam. How are you?

Caitlin: Hi, Mr. Forrester!

Samantha: Eric, is Stephanie here?

Eric: No, this is not really Stephanie's scene. So, no, she's not.

Samantha: I see that Sally's being herself at home, though.

Eric: Yeah. And why am I not surprised?

Darla: Hey, guys.

Thorne: Well, I see you have the best seat in the house, Sally, as usual.

Sally: Well, of course, my darling. I mean, those thin little models might be able to exist on black coffee and cigarettes, but I sure as hell can't.

Deacon: Hey, guys.

Jackie: Welcome.

Deacon: Sal.

Sally: Mr. Sharpe, have you happened to see the latest numbers yet?

Deacon: No, sally, I haven't. But when I do, you'll be the first to know. You guys have a good time, okay?

Darla: Thank you.

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

Massimo: So, just use half of it at first, to initiate the dependency without raising any red flags.

Heather: Then increase the dosage until Mr. Sharpe turns to the bottle of his own volition?

Massimo: You're a quick study.

Heather: But if this man is an alcoholic, surely he'll be able to taste the liquor we use to spike his drinks?

Massimo: Ah, see, this isn't your run-of-the-mill, convenience store liquor. See, this has been derived from the fermentation of the grain. Distilled twice, which means -- it's odorless and tasteless.

Heather: I should've known you'd have all bases covered. Including my cover, I assume?

Massimo: Mm-hmm. I've already made a couple phone calls, and I've gotten you a job as Deacon's personal assistant. Now, I'd like for you to start tonight. I want you to go to the Jackie M party at bikini beach. They should be expecting you.

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

Deacon: Honey, you realize all these people are here to celebrate you.

Jackie: Something tells me they're here for the bikinis and the mai tais. Oh, darling, you really know how to throw one heck of a party.

Deacon: You know what, there's no "me," anymore. It's just "us." From now on, everything is about us.

Clarke: My kind of party.

Amber: Come on, Sal, I'll go get you another plate of goodies.

Sally: Thank you, Amber. It's nice to know someone is looking forward to a nice year-end bonus.

Eric: Well, hello, everyone.

Thorne: Dad.

Darla: Eric. Ooh, looking very tropical, I see.

Sally: Yes, you're looking like a regular tropical heat wave.

Eric: Listen, I just wanted to say -- I've seen what you've been up to.

Clarke: You have?

Sally: Bigger and better than anything you expected, right?

Eric: Honestly? Yes. Your last quarter's sales figures were very impressive.

Sally: Oh, oh, talk about sales figures. Yes, yes.

Clarke: Quite impressive. Impressive.

Thorne: Well, hopefully, it's the beginning of bigger things to come.

Eric: I hope so, too. I really do. Although the next figures are gonna be out any second now. So I wish you luck.

Clarke: You mean that?

Eric: Yes, I do. There's nothing wrong with a little healthy competition. As long as it stays healthy and fair.

Sally: Oh, Eric, please. My days of impropriety are long gone. Very old news.

Caitlin: Oh, my gosh. I can't believe we got dad to another fashion event.

Hector: At least I don't have to wear a tie.

Samantha: You know, either.

Hector: Samantha

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

Caitlin: Oh, my god. Hello? Talk about emotional scarring. I am not watching you two.

Amber: Yeah, seriously, right?

Caitlin: Amber. Oh, hi. I was just --

Amber: Being traumatized by your parents. Yeah, I saw. Trust me, the scars, they never heal. Hey, Jimmy, lookin' good.

Jimmy: You, too, Amber. I like the blonde hair.

Amber: Thank you.

Hector: You girls wanna hit the buffet with us?

Caitlin: Oh, I think I'll hold off. I should probably network a bit first.

Samantha: My daughter just gets promoted, and already she's "networking"!

Amber: Well, well. Sounds like congratulations are in order.

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

Bridget: I'm not avoiding anything. Except having to stand around and make small talk with the entire fashion world.

Ridge: You think I like that? That's why I want you to come to the party, so I have commiserate with while your mom goes and promotes the company.

Bridget: Nice try.

Ridge: I thought so.

Brooke: Ridge, she's already made up her mind. So, you are just gonna have to fend for yourself, buster.

Thomas: All right, all right, all right. What's the hold-up, people? Let's get this party started!

Brooke: Okay! Bye, sweetheart.

Bridget: Bye, Mom.

Ridge: Sure you'll be okay?

Bridget: I'll be fine. Really. Go!

Brooke: Okay.

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

Nick: This isn't good for you. It's not healthy, you keeping tabs on mom like this.

Massimo: Well, I wouldn't call it that, per se.

Nick: Well, what would you call it then?

Massimo: Concern. That your mother's heading down a dangerous path.

Nick: I see. Pop, I hate to be the one to say this to you --

Massimo: No, no, no I know. I know, Dominick. Your mother thinks that she's got the real deal with Deacon. But she doesn't know him, not really. See, Seacon is plagued with demons. And the trouble with these things are is they're bound to rear their ugly head. Which is why I want to ask a favor of you.

Nick: Anything you need.

Massimo: Go to that party tonight.

Nick: Why would I want to go to that party tonight?

Massimo: Why? Keep an eye on your mother in case something goes wrong.

Nick: Oh, my -- listen to yourself, will you? Nothing is going to go wrong.

Massimo: Listen, as long as deacon is overseeing the festivities, anything can go wrong. Please, Dominick, huh? For me? Just for no other reason than my peace of mind? Thank you. I knew I could depend on you. Thank you.

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

Jackie: Have you seen Nicky?

Deacon: No. Do you really think he's gonna show up?

Jackie: Well, he told me he'd think about it.

Deacon: That's pretty much translating to "no." I'm sorry.

Jackie: Well, I'm not going give up.

Deacon: Of course you're not.

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

Heather: Mr. Sharpe?

Deacon: Yeah?

Heather: I'm Heather Engle. Your new assistant?

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

[ Doorbell rings ]

Bridget: I've got it, Catherine!

Nick: Ho, ho, ho.

Bridget: Nick?

Nick: Hey there.

Bridget: What is that?

Nick: Oh, it's a Christmas present for Hope. She likes to put barrettes in my hair, so --

Bridget: Yeah, you thought you'd encourage her.

Nick: Got to stick with the theme, you know.

Bridget: Did anyone tell you that Christmas was a few days ago?

Nick: Have you ever heard of "assembly required"? I've rebuilt ship engines in the time that it took to put this together.

Bridget: Hey, I heard about your mom and deacon.

Nick: Oh. Sad deal, but that's the way it is. You look good. What have you got planned for tonight?

Bridget: Oh, sleep. Mom and Ridge went to that Jackie M party.

Nick: Ugh. I have to go to that, too. My old man wants me to, so I --

Bridget: Sorry.

Nick: Hey -- would you go to this party with me? I mean, you're dressed for it. It's like a beach thing.

Bridget: No, no, no.

Nick: Seriously, seriously. Please. These fashion people, they drive me insane, you know? They're not really my cup of tea.

Bridget: Oh, really?

Nick: Yeah, really. What do you say, would ya?

Bridget: No, I'm not dressed, I haven't showered, I've been --

Nick: Great, let's go.

Bridget: No, Nick, Nick, no --

Nick: Come on, come on. You'll have fun, believe me. Seriously. It will be a big favor. Come on. You're lookin' good.

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

Deacon: Heather, how are you? I'm sorry. I should have remembered you from your resume.

Jackie: I'm Jackie.

Heather: Ah, Jackie Marone? It's an honor.

Jackie: Please. The pleasure's all mine.

Deacon: Well, listen, welcome aboard. From everything I saw on your resume, it looks like you're perfectly suited for this job.

Heather: Well, thank you. I appreciate the opportunity.

Deacon: Listen, tonight's just about having fun. So , grab some food. The bar's open. Enjoy yourself, okay?

Heather: Well, how about you? Can I get my new boss something to drink? A Pina Colada, perhaps?

Deacon: Yeah, you know what? That would be great. Just make it without any alcohol, okay? Virgin. I'll see you.

Heather: Anything for you, Jackie?

Jackie: No, no. I'm fine, thanks.

Massimo: Enjoy your party, Deacon. After tonight, it'll be all downhill.

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

Jimmy: It's a cool party.

Jackie: Well, thank you, young man. And thank you so much for coming.

Heather: Here's your drink, Mr. Sharpe.

Deacon: Oh, hey, Heather, thank you. Do me a favor, please. Call me Deacon, okay?

Jimmy: Man, that looks good.

Deacon: Here, you want it?

Hector: Jimmy's got a few years left before he can hit the hard stuff.

Deacon: No, it's cool. This doesn't have any alcohol in it.

Heather: Oh, gosh. I'm really sorry. I'll get you another one. And you as well. I'll be right back.

Deacon: My new assistant. I'm calling the agency.

****************************************************************8

Hector: That's cool. It's all right.

Ridge: Hey.

Brooke: Hey. Looks like all the movers and shakers are here.

Eric: Yes. And I think Deacon must be very pleased with himself.

Ridge: Go ahead, Logan. Make your rounds. I'm just along for the ride tonight. Which is actually a quite a nice change of pace.

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

Deacon: Excuse me, everybody. Can I have your attention for just a second? Jackie and I both want to thank you so much for coming out tonight. I know it's a little bit unconventional to have a beach party, but I just figured that, you know, we're entrenched in fashion business day after day, and why not take the focus off the clothes for a change, and put it on you guys, the people who really make this business great. The people who create everything that sets our stores apart from the ones right next to them on Rodeo, and Michigan and fifth avenue. Thank you. This is for you guys. Thank you so much.

[ Applause ] Excuse me for a second. This what I've been waiting for. Talk about timing. I've just been handed the list of all the sales figures for the entire chain. All I can say is -- wow.

Deacon: Well, I just want to announce that the company's first quarter as Jackie M -- the profits surpassed any other in the 30-year history of the chain. So that's amazing. Thank you.

[ Applause ] So, obviously you guys over at spectra, you picked the right place to peddle your genius. Got a quick shout-out to Forrester creations, who posted some of the same strong numbers, both in profit and in volume that, well frankly, they're famous for. No big surprise there. And now we come to the new kids on the couture block -- "Spectra Couture by Thorne Forrester." These guys posted a 23% gain --

[ Murmurs of astonishment ] -- Wait a sec, that was in the last week.

[ Applause ] It's amazing. Congratulations.

Jackie: In all my years in retail, I have rarely seen such an increase. I mean, it -- it's unprecedented, I think. So, congratulations are completely in order. Congratulations.

[ Applause ]

Darla: You did it, baby.

Thorne: No. No, we all did it.

Clarke: See, sally? I told you, we should've gone legit years ago.

Sally: We didn't have Thorne and the Forrester name years ago, Bucky.

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

Eric: Well, it obviously didn't cannibalize our sales.

Ridge: Or maybe our sales would have grown more, dad.

Deacon: If you guys'll bear with me, I just want one more second -- but, actually -- oh, thank you. Actually, I lied. It's going to take a couple seconds. I want to say a few words about the woman that we're here to celebrate tonight. This beautiful woman right beside me. Jackie's not only lent her name to Jackie M, but she's lent her beauty, her grace, elegance and class. And I feel very fortunate to have that be a part of my life, too. I see it every moment that we're together. You are just an incredible woman. Both professionally and personally. I just -- I just thank god everyday that you're in my life. Thank you.

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

[ Applause ]

Massimo: Yes.

Heather: Mission accomplished.

Massimo: He ingested it?

Heather: Happening as we speak.

Massimo: Excellent. Very good. All right, heather, what I want you to do right now is to hang tight. I'm going to come around shortly. I'll be in the limo.

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

Ridge: You know, Sally's gonna milk that sales increase for all it's worth. I already see the headlines.

Brooke: Like you said, you're not here for work. You're here to have fun. And it just so happens you have your wonderful, charming, lovable wife here with you.

Ridge: Hmm. And no small children.

Brooke: Right. So live it up.

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

Nick: A little tough to watch.

Bridget: Oh, sometimes.

Nick: It must be tough for you. You loved the guy.

Bridget: I've dealt with it.

[ Bridget clears her throat ] I moved on. It wasn't right from the beginning.
