Donna: Hey, Brooke. It's Donna. How's it going down under?
Brooke: Hey, it's great. Everybody's really excited about the launch. And I think it's going to be spectacular.
Donna: Bragging to the competition. That's not very nice. Well, I hope you're not stuck in meetings all day. You should enjoy Sydney.
Brooke: Oh, I will. I will, just as soon as Ridge and the kids get here.
Donna: The kids?
Brooke: I thought it would be nice experience for Rick and Phoebe.
Donna: But Ridge hates the thought of them together.
Brooke: They will behave themselves.
Donna: Yeah, and if not, he'll be ready to pounce. And it's no way to start a family, sis. I want you to really think about this. Don't get sucked back into that Forrester family. It's a big mistake. And Nick, he's never gotten over you.
Brooke: Nick and Taylor are engaged.
Brooke: He proposed to her last night.
Donna: I don't believe it. How did you find out?
Brooke: Well, I guess that doesn't really matter, does it? I mean, they're engaged and they're going to be married. And -- whatever we had is -- is over. Look, I've got to run. I have to meet Ridge and the kids at the jet. So, just give my love to Hope and R.J. and tell them I will call them soon. Bye, Donna.
Donna: Voicemail. Jackie, it's Donna. Look, I'm sorry I didn't call you earlier, but I need to see you. Can you meet me here at Insomnia? It's really important.
Ridge: Okay, wake up. The captain says we're about to land.
Phoebe: Well, look at you, all spiffy. Do I have time to freshen up?
Ridge: It's all yours.
Phoebe: Thank you.
Ridge: You're welcome.
Rick: Look, I really wasn't planning on coming on this trip. But since I'm here, I would really like to enjoy myself. I bet you would, too. But that's not going to happen if you insist on dogging me the entire time. All right. Fine. Have it your way. But know this, my mom wants me here whether you do or not.
Phoebe: Are you arguing again?
Ridge: No, of course not. Just getting a few things straight.
Rick: Permission to brush my teeth, sir. Would you like to stand guard by the door? Do you want to check out the bathroom first before I go in there? Hey, maybe Phoebe left me a note on the mirror or something.
Phoebe: Please don't ruin this trip.
Ridge: Me? I'm not going to ruin anything, sweetie.
Phoebe: Yeah, you will if you don't lighten up a little. I mean, we're announcing plans for a fragrance and we're opening a store in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. You love this part of your job. Press. The hype. This should be fun.
Ridge: And it's going to be fun. As long as you stay away from Rick.
Phoebe: If I avoid him, people will think something's wrong.
Ridge: Why don't you just let me worry about that?
Phoebe: Why do you have to worry at all? I mean, can't we all just relax and have fun together?
Pilot: Please take your seats and buckle your seat belts. We are beginning our final approach into Sydney.
Jackie: You could have called me sooner and told me you were here. I have been at the office for hours waiting for you.
Donna: I got you this.
Jackie: Thank you. Let's sit down. Please tell me that you're making headway with Phoebe.
Donna: She and Rick are in Australia with Ridge who is opening a boutique in Sydney. I just spoke with Brooke. And she's expecting them any minute. But that's not why I wanted to see you. Jackie, why didn't you tell me about Nick and Taylor?
Jackie: You knew they were seeing each other.
Donna: They're engaged.
Donna: You didn't know? Jackie, Nick proposed.
Donna: Yes, he did. I spoke with Brooke.
Jackie: Nicky proposed to Taylor? They're getting married?
Donna: But they're not married yet. And neither are Ridge and Brooke. We still have time. Rick and Phoebe in Sydney, that could work for us. They're staying at the same hotel. Romantic getaway, thousands of miles away from home. Ridge can't watch them every single second. They find time to be alone. And something happens. And --
Jackie: And then Ridge will come down on Rick.
Donna: And Brooke won't stand for it. There's one more person she's more royal to than Ridge, and that's her own son. And if Ridge crosses that line again, I'm telling you. That relationship is on thin ice.
Jackie: Okay, Nicky can't do this now. He cannot marry Taylor. Not now.
Donna: Not if there's a chance that he could be with Brooke. There is, Jackie. There is.
Jackie: I got to talk to Nicky.
Bridget: Hey, Aunt Donna.
Bridget: So, what are you two up to? Let me guess. Are you planning to break mom and Ridge up?
Brooke: I'm so glad you're finally here. I know it's only been a few days. I missed you guys so much.
Brooke: Hey. Oh, you cut your hair.
Phoebe: Oh, I did it, actually.
Brooke: It looks wonderful.
Rick: Yeah, thankfully she finished it before Ridge walked in.
Ridge: Don't ask.
Rick: Yeah, I wouldn't ask about the flight either.
Phoebe: Well, tell us about Sydney and what you've done so far.
Brooke: Work mostly. I didn't want to do any sightseeing until all of you were here.
Ridge: Well, it is going to be a business trip. There won't be that much free time.
Brooke: We can still have fun. Now, there's a schedule in the car, so why don't we all go --
Rick: We're just -- we're waiting on customs to clear us.
Ridge: It will only be a couple more moments.
Rick: Not soon enough for me.
Phoebe: 14 hours on a plane is a long time.
Rick: Yes, 14 hours on a plane with somebody's eyes boring in the back of your skull is a very long time.
Ridge: But it could have been worse, though. At least no one got tossed into the ocean.
Brooke: Okay, I can see that you're all very tired. I felt the same way when I got here. But maybe when you shake off those cobwebs, you'll feel better. And you'll see what the excitement is. There's a buzz about Forrester Originals and opening up the boutique and this fragrance that ashley's putting together. It's wonderful.
Ridge: That's what I want everybody talking about, too. I don't want them talking about you two.
Ridge: I'm serious about this, Phoebe. We can't afford any bad publicity this week. I don't want you two sneaking off and whispering in corners. And if there's a picture taken of the two of you, I want somebody standing in between. Is that understood?
Brooke: Okay, I don't think that's necessary.
Ridge: I think it's very necessary, Brooke. Rick and Phoebe need to know what's expected of them.
Brooke: Well, that you've laid down the law; I want you to know what is expected of you.
Ridge: All right, thank you very much. Okay, we're cleared. We can deplane.
Rick: Oh, thank you.
Phoebe: I can't wait to take a shower and a nap.
Rick: Let's go.
Brooke: Nobody is going anywhere until you hear what I have to say. We didn't come half way around the world so you can be arguing about that same things you were arguing about at home. This could be a really great experience for all of us. And I'm not going to handle bickering. Now, you two. You need to behave. And you, you need to relax. And then maybe we can all co-exist and really have a great time. Sydney is such a wonderful city. There's so many things to see and to do. And there's no people that are friendlier than the Australians. So, let's do as the Aussies do and be nice to each other, okay? Oh, there's some things I want to show you on the way back to the hotel. I thought -- yes --
Rick: Mom, mom, can we save the sightseeing for later? I mean, I think we all need a little space.
Brooke: Well, actually, there is a driver picking you two up and Ridge and I are going to take a car.
Ridge: Wait a minute, we're not driving to the hotel together?
Brooke: No, I made plans for dinner for all of us, around seven. So, we'll see you then.
Rick: Great. That sounds good to me. Thanks, Mom.
Phoebe: Have fun, guys.
Ridge: Wait a minute, you can't just let them go like that --
Brooke: Yes, we can.
Phoebe: Bye, Dad.
Ridge: No, no, this isn't going to happen --
Brooke: Ridge, let it go. They've promised to be good. We have to trust them.
Ridge: But that's just it, Brooke. I don't trust them.
Brooke: Well, you have to. Now, I know it's been a long, long trip. You're tired and you're tense. And I know just what to do to get you out of this mood.
Bridget: Oh, Donna, you're trying to derail my mother's wedding. I heard you talking to Jackie.
Donna: I am looking out for my own sister.
Bridget: Oh, by plotting against her, I see.
Donna: That relationship is unhealthy, Bridget. You know what her life will be like. Battling Stephanie. Bowing to Ridge. This conflict with Rick and Phoebe is just the beginning.
Bridget: Well, I think mom and Ridge have handled that.
Donna: No. Ridge handled it. And forced Brooke into accepting his decision.
Bridget: Well, Phoebe is his daughter.
Donna: Yeah, an 18-year-old with a mind of her own. Something apparently Ridge doesn't appreciate in a woman.
Bridget: Well, I think that Rick and Phoebe have ended their involvement anyways, so --
Donna: No. No, they haven't. I spoke with Phoebe. She and Rick are still very much in love. Sooner or later, they're going to act on their feelings, Bridget. And when they do, my sister is going to be caught in the middle of a minefield.
Bridget: I really don't see how this is any of your business. Mom and Ridge have been able to handle everything else that's come their way. I'm pretty sure they can handle this.
Donna: They have never faced something like this. We're talking about their own kids, Bridget. Your mom's made some mistakes and she is the first to admit it. But there's one that she never ever wants to repeat. Choosing a man over her own children. If she's forced to pick a side, there's no question about it, she will pick Rick.
Brooke: See, it's beautiful. Aren't you glad we didn't go straight to the hotel?
Ridge: Actually, I'm a little anxious to get there.
Brooke: Why? You can't wait until we're alone? Or are you concerned about Rick and Phoebe being alone together? Ridge, if you want them to behave responsibly, you have to give them a chance to be responsible. Constantly looking over their shoulder is only going to make them rebel.
Ridge: It is beautiful.
Brooke: We'll get through this. Just like we always get through everything. As long as we have each other, that's all that really matters. Right?
Ridge: Right. Oh, Logan. It was so frustrating, like a mystery I couldn't solve.
Rick: Oh, this is nice.
Phoebe: I just want to stay in bed all day. Sleeping. Because I'm really tired.
Rick: Yeah, that flight wore me out, too.
Phoebe: Oh, I hope the whole trip isn't like that. I hate feeling watched.
Rick: Nobody's watching us now.
[Cell phone rings] What, did your dad pick out this room or something? He's got the place bugged?
Phoebe: Hang on, no, but I'm sure that door connects to their room.
Rick: Oh, that's wonderful.
Phoebe: It's Donna. Hello?
Donna: Phoebe. You made it. You're in Sydney?
Phoebe: Yeah, we just got to the hotel.
Donna: Can you talk?
Phoebe: I'm kind of in the middle of something, actually --
Rick: I'll call downstairs and see about the luggage.
Donna: Is that Rick?
Phoebe: Yes, Brooke convinced dad to let us check in by ourselves.
Donna: You're alone?
Phoebe: For the moment.
Donna: Well, make the most of it. You might not get a lot of opportunities on this trip.
Phoebe: Yeah, I know. I want to have a good time. I just --
Donna: Phoebe, you're in one of the most romantic cities in the world with an incredible guy. Don't act like you're doomed. A little jet-lagged maybe. But definitely not doomed. You and Rick will have an amazing time. Just got to make it happen, okay?
Donna: Look, if there's anything I can do --
Phoebe: No, thank you.
Rick: All right, you. Come here. Time to cheer up. We got Sydney right outside of our window, and your dad is nowhere in sight. It's time that we make the most of it.
Brooke: See the people up there? Wouldn't that be exciting? You can climb the arch. And what a view.
Ridge: Yeah, what a view.
Brooke: And the Sydney tower, it's over there. You can see the mountains all the way from there. We should have dinner there some night. And the harbor is so beautiful at night. The lights are all sparkling and twinkling and everything's so magical. And the opera house is shimmering --
Brooke: You're not even looking.
Ridge: I'm seeing all I want to see, Logan. Right here. How is it you're even more beautiful in the southern hemisphere?
Brooke: Well, I can see I got you out of that mood.
Ridge: Yeah, you did. And into another one.
Brooke: Oh boy.
Ridge: This turned out to be a very good day.
Brooke: It's G'day.
Brooke: G'day. Yeah --
Brooke: Yeah, that's how they say it here. Come on, you gotta get with it. You know, I figure since it's such an beaut arvo with no ankle biters in sight, that you and I could grab a sanger and a stubby and just chill. No reason to "spit the dummy", eh, mate?
Brooke: No, I'm not talkin' about getting smashed. I'm just talking about a little mini-rage. You, me, some flunk, and maybe a naughty with a franger --
Ridge: I don't know what the heck you should said, but you are really something. You know that?
Brooke: I know. I know.
Ridge: Oh, my Logan.
Brooke: Forever and ever.
