Floor director: And we're out.
Rich: You're doing great, Donna.
Donna: I'm a little nervous.
Rich: Well, it doesn't show.
Donna: Well, I'm just glad ridge is here.
Rich: Are you kidding? I'm sure there's no place else he'd rather be.
Felicia: What's going on?
Ridge: They're in a commercial.
Felicia: I mean with you. You asked him to bring you out on stage. Why Ridge? What are you planning?
Stephanie: Why aren't you glued to the tv set like everyone else in the building? Donna's on "The Rich Ginger Show."
Thorne: Oh, I'm taping it. What about you?
Stephanie: No. I've seen more than I need to of Donna. I stopped down at your office earlier.
Thorne: I was at Taylor's. I told her I was no longer looking for Darla's killer.
Stephanie: Oh. What did she say? She agree with that?
Thorne: She was very supportive.
Stephanie: Well, I think she doesn't want to see you get caught up in this anger anymore than I do. You know, we all want you to start moving on. And you are.
Thorne: Yeah. Well, I can't stop the police from following new leads, but I have to concentrate on myself and Alexandria and nothing else.
Stephanie: Well, you have to leave yourself open to people that want to help you. I mean, Taylor does. I think she can help you find peace of mind, sweetheart.
Taylor: Okay, yes. Right here, here's a step. Step down once. Step, okay. Hang on. Okay, I'm just going to lead you right over here to the sofa. Just keep going. Right, right here. Yes. Okay? Sit. You okay?
Taylor: All right.
Hector: I'm sorry. I'm sorry about this. The guys from the station would have picked me up, but they got a call.
Taylor: Oh, hey, nobody wants to stay in the hospital longer than they have to. It's completely understandable.
Hector: Thank you. You know, Kaitlin offered to take me back to New York with her.
Taylor: Oh, that was sweet.
Hector: Yeah, well, she has her own life to live. So does Jimmy.
Taylor: You're their father. They want to be there for you.
Hector: I know. And I thank them for it. But I can't go to New York, a big city I don't know. I would be a fish out of water even if I could see. But like this, I can't even find my way around your living room.
Rich: Welcome back, folks. I'm here with the gorgeous, and charming lead model for the Brooke's Bedroom lingerie line, Donna Logan.
Nick: Hey, I got something for you.
Brooke: Nick! Nick, I'm watching.
Brooke: The green tanker?
Nick: The green tanker. Exactly how you described it to the Marone board. By the end of the month, we will have three of these. You wanted green, baby? We got green.
Brooke: Okay, that's great. That's super.
Nick: What's so important on TV?
Brooke: Oh, sorry. This is Donna's first really big TV interview.
Rich: Yes, there she is.
[Applause] I have the guys version of that. It's very uncomfortable on me.
[Donna laughs] They love you. What about the reaction you're getting here?
Donna: Well, everybody likes to be appreciated.
Rich: Well, yes, but not everybody is the lead model in a lingerie line.
Donna: Yes, but in Brooke's bedroom, they can all feel like one.
Rich: Oh, what a plug. What a pro, ladies and gentlemen. That's good. You're getting the hang of this spokesperson thing.
Donna: I'm doing my best, thanks.
Rich: Now, what about the cat calls, though? You're also -- you're in the spotlight now, and you hear the whistles, how does that feel?
Donna: It's not the first time in my life I've been whistled at.
Rich: Yeah, yeah. I'm sure.
Donna: I just get paid for it.
[Laughter and applause]
Rich: Now, all of a sudden you're an overnight, international sensation. Just an hour ago, you're a waitress working for minimum wage how does that happen?
Stephanie: Is something bothering you?
Thorne: I'm starting to doubt myself, Mother. And my commitment to Darla.
Stephanie: What are you talking about? You loved Darla. She loved you. Honey, Darla would want you to start moving on with your life.
Thorne: Does that include moving on with another woman?
Stephanie: Someday, of course. What is it?
Thorne: I told you I went to Taylor's?
Thorne: We kissed, Mother. I kissed her.
Taylor: I know losing your sight will be challenging.
Hector: The biggest challenge of my life.
Taylor: But you won't go through it alone. You know? I mean, there's so many people that want to help you, Hector.
Hector: But I'm the one used to doing the helping.
Taylor: Well, there will be part of one of your challenges.
Hector: That's easy to say, but how it feels -- you know, the guys at the fire station invited me to stay with them. Great, right? They're like family. It's a second home to me. They do my cooking, offer to do my laundry --
Taylor: That's wonderful.
Hector: But it's not. Being taken care of like that, it's humiliating.
Taylor: Well, maybe you'll have to suck it up for awhile.
Hector: Maybe I could, for a while. But, that's not even the worst of it. What happens when the alarm goes off? When all the guys are getting geared up, ready to go out, on a call, risking their lives -- no. If I can't be a firefighter, then I don't belong in that house. You know, right now, I really don't belong anywhere.
Announcer: Coming up next more with lingerie model Donna Logan.
Nick: Well, I think she did a great job.
Brooke: So far.
Nick: Well, if you're so concerned, why aren't you there with her?
Brooke: Well, I wish I was.
Nick: Well, why aren't you?
Brooke: Because Ridge is there with her. You'll never believe what they want to do.
Nick: Tell me.
Brooke: Donna's wearing this dress. It has Velcro on it and at some point, she's just going to rip it off and reveal Ridge's latest design underneath. I tried to talk him out of it, but, my god -- I just really hope they listen to me.
Ridge: Listen to that audience.
Felicia: Right, like that performance is for them. Seeing you and Donna on national tv together, is going to drive Brooke nuts.
Ridge: Not everything I do involves Brooke.
Felicia: Ridge, I know you're still in love with her. Don't put Donna in the middle of it, okay? It isn't fair. And deep down, it's not what you want. Is it?
Rich: So tell me, what's that like? One minute, you're a waitress, suddenly you're an international overnight sensation?
Donna: Well, first of all, I would like to say thank you to my sister, Brooke, for giving me this opportunity. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't be sitting here right now.
Rich: Yes, well, that is the Forrester way. Isn't it? All in the family? Huh, huh?
[Laughter] You know where I'm going with this? Speaking of the Forresters, we have all heard the rumors. What's this about you and your sister's ex?
Donna: Working with Ridge, is amazing.
Rich: Yeah, I'm sure. He said the same about you.
Donna: Well, that's very flattering.
Rich: Well, it's intriguing to the rest of us, because we have always heard, Ridge say that Brooke was his inspiration, and now, he's raving about you.
Donna: Like I said before, a woman likes to be appreciated.
Rich: And be appreciated, you mean --
[Audience oh’s] Come on! Come on, give it to me! Let's dish here, we've all heard. We know that Ridge and Brooke fell in love working together. Is that what's happening to you?
[Applause] I'm just gonna come out with it.
Brooke: Oh, my god! This is exactly what I was talking about.
Nick: All he's doing is asking a question.
Brooke: No, he's making it sound like they have a relationship, which they don't. It's just gossip.
Nick: You told me gossip is good business. You and Forrester fueling the rumor mill when you were going to model Brooke's bedroom. It seems to me that is exactly what he's doing now, only it's with your sister. So, what's wrong with that?
[Applause and laughter]
Rich: We want to know. You and Ridge are involved, aren't you?
Donna: We work very closely together.
Rich: And, given his history, we know where that leads, don't we folks? Beautiful woman, his new Logan, there must be sparks out there.
Donna: I can't speak for Ridge.
Rich: Okay, fair enough. We'll let the man speak for himself. I got him here. Ladies and gentlemen, Ridge Forrester!
Brooke: Ridge is on stage? What is he doing?
Donna: What is going on?
Ridge: Well, the man wants to ask me a question. I thought we should give him an answer.
Donna: You can't do that here.
Rich: Did you have a secret you would like to share with the class?
Stephanie: You kissed Taylor?
Thorne: Yes, I did. And it was the wrong thing to do, Mother. My wife just died.
Stephanie: I know that, sweetheart. I know, and no one is ever going to replace Darla in your heart. Or in Alexandria's. It's a sticky wicket.
Thorne: It's too soon.
Stephanie: Is that what your heart is telling you?
Thorne: Mother, my heart is broken.
Stephanie: It can be fixed, honey.
Thorne: Are you encouraging this?
Stephanie: Sweetheart, you were devoted to Darla. You can't turn that off just like that. But on the other hand, you and Taylor both suffered terrible losses. I mean, who's going to blame you for wanting -- wanting something positive in your life?
Hector: I don't -- I'm not trying to make you feel sorry for me, Taylor. I know how lucky I was to get out of that fire alive. This just isn't the life that I expected to have.
Taylor: You can still help people. You haven't lost your ability to care.
Hector: I have to find my purpose and my place.
Taylor: That's right. And you're doing a great job so far, except for one thing.
Hector: What's that?
Taylor: Your glasses. When you're hiding behind them, and I don't think that's a good habit to get into. Whether it's a mask or your shades, I think it would slow your progress.
Hector: But, my face is all --
Taylor: No, your face looks fine. You're still a very handsome man. Now, I want to take them off. I don't want you to get used to it, okay?
Hector: Well, I'm not going back to the firehouse. I can tell you that for sure.
Taylor: Is it that painful to go back there?
Hector: Taylor, I can't bear it. Anymore than I can bear sitting here. Getting sympathy from you. I should go.
Taylor: No, Hector. Hector -- where are you going to go? Your house burned down.
Hector: Please, I have caused you enough problems already.
Taylor: Hector, listen, we both made a lot of mistakes. I'm sure that we would go back and change it if we could. But, we can't. So, all we can do is move on.
Hector: Well, that's what I'm doing. I'm going.
Taylor: No, hector. Hector, listen. I think I want you to stay here.
Hector: Here? With --
Taylor: Yes, I want you to stay here with me and Phoebe. You can stay here for awhile. As long as you need to stay here, you can stay. I mean it. It's okay.
Hector: Well, it's not like I'm in any position to say no, is it?
Taylor: I'll go out in the car get your things. Sit down. I don't want you to move. Look, go ahead, and just sit down and wait for me. I'll be right back.
Hector: Taylor? Taylor, the phone. Are you here?
Thorne: Taylor? Taylor, hey it's Thorne. Hello?
Taylor: Okay. Your stuff. What are you doing up? Come on. I'll take you up to your room.
Donna: Do you want to do it? Right now?
Ridge: No, not that.
Rich: I feel like I'm eavesdropping here.
Ridge: We just have something we'd like to tell you.
Brooke: What secret? What is he talking about?
Rich: So, would this have anything to do with these rumors we have been hearing?
Ridge: Oh, it might.
Rich: Ridge, don't make me beg!
Ridge: Well, would it help if I said I feel like jumping on your couch!
Rich: Yeah! That's it! Now you're talking! So the rumor is --
Ridge: Isn't a rumor at all. This woman has changed my life.
Rich: Woo, I see some real chemistry here.
Ridge: Well, it surprised me, too.
Rich: Donna looks more surprised than anyone.
Ridge: I know it's a little early to make public announcements, but I couldn't help how I feel about her. This woman has changed my life in some many ways. Just when I thought my muse was gone forever, in strolls this vision. Suddenly, I felt like going to the office again. It was okay. Of course, I told myself it was just to be business and design for her. But I just couldn't seem to keep her off my mind. But it was a lot more than that. I was entranced, as any man would be.
Rich: I'm getting hot. You say that Donna changed your life?
Ridge: Like a bolt out of the sky. One of those unexpected jolts that changes the direction you're going.
Rich: That sounds dangerous.
Ridge: Oh, together we could be. We will be.
[Audience ohs] Tonight, Rich, is the first day of the rest of my life.
Rich: Aww --
Brooke: I can't believe this. I can't believe this. What are they doing? I'm sorry. I can't let this happen. I can't. I just can't.
