George: I'll come right to the point. You're out as CEO, Nick, and I'm in.
Nick: It's over.
Eric: What time are we due at Forrester?
Ridge: Don't worry. George is not going to start the meeting without us.
Eric: I would just like part of this to be handled professionally.
Ridge: We're getting the company back, Dad. You should be happy.
Eric: I am happy. I'm just not happy about the way it was done.
Ridge: Well, we saw an opportunity and we took it.
Eric: By publicly humiliating Jackie Marone.
Ridge: It's no worse than what Nick did to us. Threatening to send mother to jail. Look, I know you feel bad about Jackie. You deserved to get your company back, Dad. And you know what? We would have done anything, anything at all, to make that happen.
Eric: And so you did. Thank you.
Thorne: Good morning.
Taylor: On your way out?
Thorne: No, not yet. Ally's getting ready for her play date. I thought that we could talk.
Taylor: You want to explain why I saw you on television last night?
Thorne: I'm sorry, Taylor.
Taylor: Did you have to mention me? And Nick's therapy?
Thorne: I was defending my family. The press was tearing them apart.
Taylor: Well, they know an ugly story when they see one. I mean, what you all did to Jackie --
Thorne: It paid off. We have a meeting at Forrester. We're going to sign papers to buy our company back.
Taylor: Not a minute too soon for the Marone board, I'm sure.
Thorne: There's something else you need to know, Taylor. It's about Nick.
Taylor: He isn't the CEO anymore. I know that.
Thorne: He told you?
Taylor: I was there when George fired him. I mean, it wasn't enough for you guys to publicly humiliate Jackie, but then to destroy her son's career --
Thorne: That was not our intention. We were desperate, Taylor. Dad was slipping further and further into a depression.
Taylor: I told you I would you with that. But the fact is, you didn't even trust me to handle that situation. You have that little confidence in me.
Thorne: It's not that we didn't trust you --
Taylor: I told your mother that Nick would come around, that I just needed a little more time.
Thorne: Well, she couldn't wait.
Taylor: Just like you couldn't wait to run over your parent's house and jump right in the center ring of that media circus?
Thorne: Felicia called me, freaked out when you left, okay?
Taylor: And so, you went over there because you were mad at me for going to nick's?
Thorne: No, I went over there because my family needed me. And they need me now.
Taylor: Well, I don't want to hold you up from the big celebration. Go ahead.
Thorne: It's not like that, Taylor. We'll talk more about this when I get home. I got to go.
Jackie: Nicky! Nicky, stop! I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry. This is all my fault. I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.
Eric: Well, I have to say this is not the triumphant return that I had envisioned.
Ridge: Well, we took some hits in the press. We can handle that. You just concentrate on getting Forrester back on track.
Ridge: Hey, you ready to go?
Thorne: Yeah, let's get this over with. Sorry.
Eric: Is something wrong?
Thorne: I'm happy for you, dad. I'm really am. But --
Ridge: Is it Taylor?
Thorne: Well, she's having a hard time with what we did to Jackie.
Eric: That can't surprise you.
Thorne: I didn't help matters by talking to the press last night. Dragging Taylor's name into it. You know, Nick's therapy.
Ridge: Thorne, we did what we had to do. Trust me, you'll be happy when you see dad sitting behind his desk. You'll be damn glad we did.
Brooke: We'll in here if you need us, okay? I'm so glad you didn't cancel the play date for the girls. Hope was dying to see Alexandria's flower girl dress.
Taylor: Actually, I'm surprised you brought her over. I figured you'd be over at the Forresters for the big hand-over.
Brooke: Oh, no. No, that's Eric's moment.
Taylor: How about your history with Nick and Jackie?
Brooke: That, too.
Taylor: Well, it didn't stop you from going along with Stephanie's plan.
Brooke: I didn't know about Stephanie's plan. I feel bad for Jackie and Nick. But they shouldn't have taken away the company from Eric and Stephanie.
Taylor: Wow, that's rich coming from you.
[Doorbell rings] Hi.
Delivery man: Delivery for Taylor Hayes.
Taylor: Yes, that's me. Thank you. Thank you.
Brooke: What's that?
Taylor: Yup. It's my headpiece.
Brooke: Look, Taylor, I don't want to argue with you. I understand that you're frustrated with the way Stephanie handled this situation. You were just trying to help Nick. And you feel that Stephanie betrayed you. But the family is getting the company back. Our family. And before long, you and I are both going to be married to Forrester men.
Taylor: Brooke, I'm sorry, but my wedding to Thorne is really not the most important thing on my mind right now.
Jackie: Nicky, those are your dress whites. What are you doing?
Nick: I don't need them anymore.
Jackie: What? No, stop!
Nick: Mother, this chapter of my life is over.
Jackie: Nicky, no! No, stop it! Marone is more than your company. It's who you are.
Nick: It's who I was.
Jackie: What are you talking about?
Nick: I became a sailor because of the stories you told me about Massimo Marone, the courageous sailor who owned the seven seas.
Jackie: You were just a little boy.
Nick: Well, I'm not a little boy anymore. And I'm not going to live my life according to some saltwater fairytale.
Jackie: Well, look, I know you're discouraged. And things have been really, really difficult --
Nick: The Forresters humiliated you! And they caused me to lose my company. They think I'll quit. They think I'll paddle right back out to sea. Well, they're wrong. I won't. Never again.
Jackie: Who are you calling?
Nick: It's me. I need to see you. Now.
Jackie: Nicky, what's going on?
Nick: The Forresters have no idea what I'm capable of. No idea at all.
Taylor: Thorne knew what Stephanie was planning, and he condoned it.
Brooke: He's just concerned about his father.
Taylor: What is it? That makes it all okay? It relegates my professional reputation to the backseat? What does that say about Thorne's integrity? What does it say about his basic human decency?
Brooke: He's a good man, Taylor.
Taylor: Well, I've always believed that. I guess that's what makes this so disappointing.
Brooke: I hope you're not going to let this affect your relationship.
Taylor: It just makes me wonder if this is how it's always going to be. Is Thorne always going to be trying to get his mother's approval?
Brooke: If you want to be angry with someone, you should probably be angry with Stephanie.
Taylor: No, I'm angry with myself. I can't believe I trusted her with that information. I just don't know if I'm ever going to get over Thorne being a part of this. That had to be so humiliating for Jackie. I cannot imagine the shame she must have felt. And for Nick, that was the single most painful memory of his life. And it was out there for the whole world to see. And then he gets fired for it? It's just wrong. I cannot believe this has happened to him. This was the most important thing to Nick, for him to lose Marone Industries. It's just wrong.
Brooke: It must have been devastating.
Taylor: No, I was devastated. He was furious.
Brooke: With you?
Taylor: Look, I'm the one who told him if he would just work through his problems with me, it would help him find peace. Now, look what it got him. And then, when I went to his house, he didn't even throw me out. Like he should have. He forgave me.
Brooke: Well, if he forgave Stephanie, all of this could have been avoided.
Taylor: He just needed a little more time. He was almost there. He was so close. He was starting to open up to me. He's a good man. I just -- I know he would have done the right thing.
Brooke: Taylor -- the way you're talking -- is something going on between you and Nick?
Eric: Everything looks in order.
Attorney: Well, once the papers are signed, the sale in final. You can retake possession of Forrester immediately.
Ridge: Did you speak to George this morning?
Attorney: No, his assistant set up the meeting. But he should be here soon.
George: Sorry to keep y'all waiting.
Thorne: Well, that's okay. You've got a lot on your plate.
Eric: We understand you've taken over as CEO of Marone Industries.
Ridge: Well, Nick's focus is clearly been misplaced here at Forrester Creations. I think it's time for those of us how know what we're doing take the place over again. Let Nick get back to playing with his dingys.
George: Well, actually, Nick will be leaving Marone Industries all together. That's why I was delayed. He was very anxious to sell me his stock.
Thorne: Why would he do that?
Nick: George, just let me answer that, huh?
Eric: Nick. Hello. Look, I want to apologize for what Stephanie did to your mother. If I had known that was in the works, it never would have happened.
Nick: But it did happen, Eric. And I lost my job because of it.
Ridge: Fired you, huh?
Nick: Well, it is a little tough to go from captain to first mate.
Ridge: How do you feel about being a passenger, then? You and your mom should take a little cruise down the Mediterranean and let the scandal die down a bit. Give you a chance to use that cruise wear, so it doesn't go to waste.
Nick: Oh. Well, it won't go to waste. But thanks for your concern, Ridge. Actually, we're going to feature it on the runway in Milan.
Ridge: What, you're going to start your own fashion house now?
Nick: No. No, no. I just bought yours.
Taylor: I've been trying to help Nick with his past trauma.
Brooke: So, you're concerned about him as a patient?
Taylor: And a friend.
Brooke: How close did you get, Taylor?
Taylor: We discussed some very intimate subjects.
Brooke: Something personal?
Taylor: I can't discuss that with you, Brooke.
Brooke: Are you going to continue seeing him?
Taylor: If he wants to.
Brooke: Do you really think that's wise?
Taylor: Nick started therapy because I told him it would help bring him peace. He put his trust in me and now because of my mistake, this whole thing has gotten worse. I mean, I feel I have to make it up to him. And I'm not letting Forresters' agenda get in the way of that.
Eric: You bought Forrester Creations?
Nick: Lock, stock and sewing machine.
Thorne: That's why you sold your Marone stock?
Ridge: What the hell is this, George? We had a deal. You agreed to sell Forrester to us.
George: We agreed to discuss a purchase offer. Then Nick offered to sell me his stock at a bargain price and renegotiate his severance package. Which, was just too good a deal to refuse. Nick, good luck. I never saw your daddy in you, until today. Like him, you're not afraid to take a risk to get what you want. I hope it pays off.
Nick: Thank you, George.
Eli: Eric, I'm afraid this contract is legitimate.
Eric: Thank you, Eli. We'll talk.
Ridge: Well, I don't give a damn what he says. This contract is bogus. Even with the proceeds from Marone, there is not way you could have afforded all of Forrester's stock.
Nick: How I did is really not your concern now, is it?
Ridge: You don't give a damn about fashion, Nick. You're just doing this to screw with us.
Nick: No, I just don't like you. Or your mother. Amazing, how the fashion world can be so cutthroat. Meeting's over boys. Take a good look at the place. Because I'm going to make sure you never set foot in this building again.
Ridge: You are going to regret this, Nick. You think we were playing hard before? Well now, it really is war.
Brooke: Taylor, you think you owe Nick, but you don't. You didn't do anything wrong. And all this talk about the Forresters and their agenda. And what they did to Nick and Jackie. This is a very volatile situation. And emotions are running high. You're disappointed in Thorne. You feel very protective over Nick.
Taylor: Brooke, don't make this out to be something that it's not. There's nothing to be concerned about.
Thorne: You little bastard.
Nick: Don't say something you're going to regret. Like you did last night. You know, Taylor and I were watching when you made your little spiel on TV. She wasn't very thrilled with you.
Thorne: You stay the hell away from my fiancée.
Nick: You really are a Forrester, aren't you? You just think you own everything. Obviously, you don't.
Thorne: You have no idea what you're talking about, Nick.
Nick: Oh, I think I do. Actually, you're the one who seems to a little wet under the collar. You're not even sure if Taylor loves you, are you?
Thorne: If that were true, she wouldn't be marrying me, now would she?
Taylor: Forrester Creations. It must be Thorne. Hello?
Nick: Taylor, it's Nick. Thorne was just here. We need to talk.
Taylor: I can't.
Nick: Well, can you meet me later on? At my place?
Taylor: Well, I can't, Nick. I'll try to catch up with you a little bit later, okay? All right, bye.
Brooke: So, that was Nick?
Taylor: Yeah, he wanted me to stop by.
Brooke: But you're not going to.
Brooke: So your wedding to Thorne is a priority? You're going to go through with it?
Taylor: Yeah, of course I am.
Alexandria: Could you pass me the red? No, the bright red.
Hope: My friend told me something.
Hope: Taylor killed your mommy.
Alexandria: Did not.
Hope: Did so.
Alexandria: No, she didn't.
Hope: Katie's mom was talking about it. It's true. Taylor ran over your mommy.
