Donna: I'm fired?
Ridge: Oh, come on, Brooke.
Brooke: No, ridge. This is not debatable. Not after the tawdry sex show my sister put on in front of the press and most of our loyal buyers.
Donna: Tawdry sex show?
Brooke: I don't know what got into you out there. This could cost us our entire line. That is unless I find a way to salvage things. If any of it's salvageable at this point.
Dr. Kibe: I'll make sure that your patients are covered for as long as you need.
Taylor: Oh, thank you so much, dr. Kibe. I really do appreciate that. I do. Oh, phoebe, you remember dr. Kibe?
Dr. Kibe: Hi, phoebe. Nice to see you again.
Phoebe: You, too.
Dr. Kibe: You take good care of your mom. We're really going to miss her around here.
Phoebe: Mom, oh, my god! You quit your job? You're gonna turn yourself in --
Hector: What? No, you can't. I won't let you.
Taylor: Hector, I'm not quitting my job. I'm just taking a leave of absence.
Taylor: I'm really not in the position to be giving advice to people when I can't even handle on my own life. My life is an entire mess. Besides, the police are still investigating.
Hector: I just talked to my contact at the police station. So far, there are no solid leads. The APBs haven't panned out, forensics has come up empty. It looks as if this case isn't going to get solved, Taylor. As long as you don't say anything.
Taylor: Well, I should have been honest in the first place.
Hector: Phoebe and I lied to protect you, Taylor. If you confess --
Taylor: I know. Both of you will pay the price. You don't have to keep repeating yourself, hector.
Hector: Well, maybe I do. The more time you spend with throne and his little girl.
Stephanie: Oh, my sweet baby girl. You are so beautiful, and that dress is exquisite. I think grandpa -- I think he should put you into modeling right now.
Alexandria: Oh, grandma.
Stephanie: We could use a little innocence on the runway after today.
Thorne: The preview didn't go so well?
Stephanie: Well, let's just say the supermodel did a rather provocative show. Interestingly enough, Brooke didn't like it at all.
Thorne: She thought it was too risqué?
Stephanie: I think she was jealous.
Thorne: Jealous that ridge is working with Donna?
Stephanie: Jealous that she has been so easily replaced.
Thorne: Are you saying that there's something going on between ridge and her?
Stephanie: No, I guess I'm saying this is classic Brooke. But then you know all about that, don't you? She dumps one man for another. Then when she's finished with 't want anybody else to have him either. I think she's jealous.
Ridge: Oh, come on, Brooke. You saw the reaction. Envy.
Brooke: Not everybody. Several of the buyers walked out.
Ridge: We were just trying something different, that's all.
Brooke: I'm not talking about your designs, ridge. They're spectacular, as always. But what you did out there couldn't have been further from what this line is all about.
Donna: Okay, hold it. I admit I'm not some seasoned pro like you. But you're acting like I demeaned myself -- and Brooke's bedroom. And I don't see it like that at all.
Brooke: Because you're too inexperienced to realize it.
Donna: Fine. I'm inexperienced. But I also know what I felt from practically everyone in that showroom. There was an electricity. Excitement. Which means we were a hit, even though it was me on that runway, and not you. But that's a real problem here, isn't it? In your heart, you wish you were still the face of Brooke's bedroom. For all the obvious reasons -- and some y refuse to admit. Especially to yourself.
Taylor: I'll come get you in a minute.
Hector: Why did you tell phoebe to wait outside?
Taylor: Because what I had to say, I really don't want her to hear. Look, hector, we have to set something straight here. All right? I really do appreciate everything you've been doing for me. I know that's what you have been trying to do, is the best thing. But it really is starting to feel like you're taking over my life. And I'm not going to let you do that.
Hector: Even if it means saving you from yourself? Taylor, you're barely functioning. You're saying and doing things -- we have to stay strong, sweetheart. And committed. And in order to do that, I think we have to leave L.A. I think we have to get as far away from throne and his little girl as possible. I can help you forget.
Taylor: No -- no, that's really not the way I want do that, hector. Thorne is taking me to AA, and I'm getting better -- and I don't think running away from my problems are the answer.
Hector: I should be taking you to AA. I love you. I would do anything for you.
Taylor: What, like steamrolling me into covering this whole thing up? Like pressuring me to keep quiet, when I was already in shock? I was practically not even rational when I was trying to make decisions about this whole thing? Hector, really, come on, think about it. I mean, what's happening right now is almost worse than what happened. I can't do it. I can't let you make choices for me. I can't let you take control of my life. It isn't healthy. It isn't healthy for you or me, or our friendship.
Donna: I should have known you'd behave this way. I mean, you're married to nick when you're still in love with ridge. Plus, you're stuck over at Marone, when you want to be here where all the action is. And if that weren't enough, your kid sister is stepping into your role on the runway. Getting kudos from press and buyers. When you're used to being center stage. No wonder it's driving you crazy.
Brooke: It's not driving me crazy. I'm just trying to protect you and Brooke's bedroom from becoming the laughing stock of the world.
Ridge: That's not what's happening here, Brooke. Donna is as committed to this line's success as I am.
Donna: Which is why I did everything that ridge told me to do.
Brooke: So now you're blaming ridge for this disgusting display?
Ridge: No. This "disgusting display," as you put it, was all my idea. I told Donna what to do. And she was very committed to it. And for the record, no one could've done it better. Not even you.
Brooke: If that's meant to hurt me, ridge --
Ridge: Hurt you, Brooke? Oh, come on, for god's sakes. You know how I feel about you. You know how I feel about Brooke's bedroom. Nothing would make me happier than for you to come back here and work with me.
Donna: But you can't. Can you, sis? And we both know why.
The secret to a great
Stephanie: Hello? I would like to talk with you, if you could spare me a few moments.
Taylor: Actually, I've got nothing but time.
Stephanie: Oh, light case load?
Taylor: Well, it's more like no case load. Because I'm taking a leave of absence.
Stephanie: That might not be such a bad idea, Taylor. Funny, you know, I was just with throne. He didn't say anything about this.
Taylor: It just happened. So what brings you here?
Stephanie: I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for being so kind to throne and the baby. Darla would really be grateful. I know I am. Look, with -- having decided to take this leave of absence, maybe you could find it convenient to spend a little more time with Alexandria. You know, you're such a person of great character and integrity, honesty. She couldn't have a better role model --
Taylor: Stephanie, please. You know, this is not what I want to hear right now.
Stephanie: From me. Because of everything that's happened between us. I'm not happy about that, any more than I am about admitting that I'm wrong. Which I so rarely am, of course. I should have stood by you when ridge left. I'm sorry. It's just that he had the heart attack, and I -- I was so afraid he was going to die. That's no excuse for my thoughtlessness and insensitivity to you. I'm sorry. I really am. Well, you know, Brooke's made her decision. She married nick and she's certainly not going to give that stock back without a fight. Of course, that makes me the biggest fool of all.
Brooke: I have no idea what you're talking about. But if you think after what happened out there today, that makes me want to come back to work with you --
Ridge: Brooke, what exactly did she do that you found so objectionable? I had to get their attention. You can't expect me to sell a new spokesmodel doing the same thing that you did. That wouldn't work. Because you are incomparable, Brooke. And fortunately for me, and the line, I saw something in Donna. I saw a spark that made going in a different direction the way to go. So, that's what I did. I ran with it. And I'm glad I did, because it's gonna do big things for Brooke's bedroom now.
Donna: Which is what we all want. So what's the problem?
Brooke: The problem is -- I asked you what the bedroom line meant to you, and you made me believe that you understood it was all about sophisticated sensuality. But what you did out there on the catwalk -- that flew totally in the face of that.
Ridge: Okay, what we have here is a big, fat misunderstanding. You have your own concept of the way you think this line should be marketed. I have a different one. And that's not really surprising, considering you do all your work from Marone, and you're prevented from even being around me these days.
Brooke: Nick has his reasons, ridge.
Ridge: Yeah, well, you guys are married now. So why don't you just tell him to get over it? Especially considering I'm working my butt off trying to get on with my life here. Brooke, we both know this is no way to run a business. We need each other. I need you to make all this happen. Come on, we know what we can accomplish when we work side by side. That's where all the energy -- that's where all the creativity and the spark has always come from here. Brooke, please. Say you'll come back. You know you want to.
[Cell phone rings]
Brooke: Hello? Nick -- no, no, everything's fine. I'll be there shortly.
Ridge: Call him back. Tell him the plans have changed.
Brooke: I have to go.
Taylor: We all have regrets, Stephanie.
Stephanie: Yes, we do. And I let you down in the worst ways possible. I know it came at a very steep cost to you.
Taylor: Thorne told you everything?
Stephanie: About going to the AA meeting? Yes, I think it's a good idea. Taylor, I love you. I want our friendship back. And I know it can't happen overnight, but if you could just -- if you could find it in your heart to forgive me. I lost one daughter-in-law already, I can't lose you, too.
Taylor: I didn't want that either.
Stephanie: You know, you're so important to all of us. I know throne wouldn't be doing as well as he is, if it weren't for you.
Stephanie: No, it's true. You've been a real comfort to him and to that sweet baby girl. And I -- I know you don't like being called a saint, but in this case, I think maybe --
Taylor: Oh, I'm far from it. Trust me on that one. I don't have any answers. I really don't. I -- the only thing I can do is --
Stephanie: Just keep doing what you're doing. You know, and being a friend there. For him. Being friends with me again, maybe letting me back in your life. You think you could find it in your heart to forgive me?
Taylor: The real question is, can I forgive myself? God!
Stephanie: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sounding so selfish. I know you're going through a lot. Sweetheart, if I can help you, I promise you I'll do that. I promise I will. Look, Taylor -- please, I don't want anything to ever come between us again. Please? Please?
Donna: Sorry, ridge. I know how much you wish you and my sister could still work together.
Ridge: Brooke and I make a great team. Even when we disagree, like today.
Donna: She respects your talents.
Ridge: I respect hers. I just question why is she letting a jerk like Nick control her life?
Donna: She's given up a lot for his lordship.
Ridge: Yeah, all in the name of love, huh?
Donna: You don't believe she knows her own heart?
Ridge: I believe that she believes she does.
Donna: Which leaves you where?
Ridge: Right here with you. Which is a pretty darn nice place to be.
Donna: Even after what happened today at the fashion show?
Ridge: Oh, because of it. You were a hit, Donna Logan. Just like I knew you would be.
Donna: Well, you made me feel so comfortable out there. Like it's -- it's where I belong.
Ridge: It is where you belong.
Donna: Well, Brooke didn't think so.
Ridge: She'll have to get over it.
Donna: So, this really isn't the end of the road for me?
Ridge: Are you kidding? This is just the beginning.
Donna: I hope so.
Ridge: Are you doubting me?
Ridge: Are you doubting me?
Donna: No. Never.
Ridge: Good. That's what I like. Unabashed adulation.
Donna: I knew it was a mistake telling you what I did. About measuring all my relationships by you. Is there any wonder why I've never met the right man? I mean, they all pale in comparison.
Ridge: Well, I do have my faults. I know that's hard to believe.
Donna: I'm just saying, you're every bit as wonderful as -- as I remember you. More so. I'm really happy that you're in my life. My sister might take you for granted, but I never will.
Brooke: Oh, my god. What have I done?
