Brooke: Oh, it's gorgeous, isn't it?
Brooke: One track mind, would you stop? I could stay here all day.
Ridge: Sounds good to me.
Brooke: We've got a lot of work to do. Remember, silly?
Ridge: Let's do it tomorrow. Okay, I know you're right. As much as I'd love to play hooky, we got a job to do.
Brooke: That's right. Wait till you meet the staff. They're going to love you.
Ridge: If you approve, I like them already.
Brooke: They're going to love Rick and Phoebe, too.
Ridge: There is no Rick and Phoebe. Not as long as I have anything to say about it. Come on, let's go.
[Knock on the door]
Rick: You've gotta be kidding me.
Phoebe: God, what do you want now, Dad?
Chauffer: Phoebe and Rick.
Rick: Who are you?
Chauffer: Name's Glen. I'll be driving you over to your meeting.
Phoebe: Oh, at the boutique. I totally forgot.
Rick: So did I. We'll be downstairs in a second.
Chauffer: Afraid I can't do that. I'm to escort this young lady down to the car. Mr. Forrester gave me explicit instructions.
Rick: I'm sure he did.
[Cell phone rings]
Phoebe: Oh, it's my mom. Hi, Mom.
Taylor: Hi, sweetheart. How's Australia?
Phoebe: It's amazing. I'm having a lot of fun.
Taylor: Good. I'm glad. Listen, I know you just got in, and I know you have a lot of things you want to do. I just wanted to tell you my news real quick before you heard it from someone else.
Phoebe: Well, what's up?
Taylor: Nick asked me to marry him. And I said yes.
Phoebe, are you there?
Phoebe: Does dad know?
Taylor: I left him a message to call me. But I just wanted you to know I'm really excited. I'm really happy about this. I want you to be happy, too.
Phoebe: I am happy. Congratulations.
Taylor: Thank you. Well, I want to hear all about your trip when you get back.
Taylor: I love you.
Phoebe: I love you, too, Mom. It's really good news. Congratulations.
Rick: What happened?
Phoebe: Mom and Nick are engaged.
Nick: What time is ms. Abbott scheduled to be here? Great. Thank you, Meriah.
Jackie: Anything you would like to tell me about your personal life?
Nick: Personal life? No.
Jackie: Oh, stop it, Nicky. I talked to Donna. She told me about your engagement to Taylor. Why didn't you tell me?
Nick: Because I enjoy torturing you.
Jackie: So it is true? You asked Taylor to marry you and she said yes?
Jackie: Well, then I'm happy if you're happy.
Nick: I'm happy.
Jackie: Well, that's good, because Taylor's a marvelous woman. But may I suggest one thing?
Jackie: Wait. Please wait. Just to see if Brooke's marriage to Ridge really, really happens.
Brooke: Double bay. The perfect place for our boutique.
Ridge: Kind of like Beverly Hills down under. I wouldn't mind being down under you, to tell you the truth.
Brooke: This is a business trip, remember?
Ridge: Well, maybe monkey business?
Brooke: No. Oh, there it is. Forrester Originals Sydney. Come on.
Stephanie: Is this a bad time?
Taylor: Yes. I'm on my way out.
Stephanie: To see Nick?
Taylor: Yeah. Is something wrong?
Stephanie: May I come in?
Stephanie: Taylor, I know this has been a very difficult year for you. You --e look, you've been alone, you've been lonely. Things didn't work out with Thorne. And now, here you are with nick. But you know, getting pregnant isn't going to solve any of these problems.
Taylor: How do you know about that?
Stephanie: It's not something you can just jump into, especially with a guy like Nick --
Taylor: I am not jumping into anything. Nick and I are engaged.
Brooke: This is Yvonne, our store manager.
Brooke: Claire, the assistant manager. Rich, he's in charge of our accounts.
Brooke: And Diane, she's our sales representative here in Sydney.
Ridge: Diane, it's good to meet all of you.
Rich: You too, Mr. Forrester. Welcome to Australia.
Ridge: Thank you. Thank you, it's very good to be here.
Brooke: Oh, it's Rick and Phoebe. Great, I'm glad you're here. Everybody, I'd like you to meet my son, Rick Forrester.
Rick: Hi, everybody.
Brooke: And Phoebe, Ridge's daughter.
Rich: So, this is the famous Phoebe Forrester.
Phoebe: I don't know if I'd say I'm famous.
Rich: Well, if you're not yet, you will be soon, young lady.
Claire: No question. You're already a big hit here in Sydney.
Yvonne: People love your new campaign.
Phoebe: Thank you. That's so nice. So, tell me about this area. I mean, I don't --
Ridge: Nice of you to show up.
Rick: Why don't you talk to goon you hired to baby-sit your daughter? Where'd you find that guy? He's got to be the slowest driver in Sydney.
Ridge: Well, you might as well get used to him, Rick, because he's going to be taking care of my daughter until we go back to L.A.
Rick: Why don't you just tie a leash around her neck? It will be a lot easier --
Ridge: Oh, you snotty little --
Brooke: Don't do this here. Please, just stop it.
Nick: Read my lips, mother. I do not care what happens with Brooke's marriage to Forrester. Whether it comes off or not, because Taylor is the woman that I want to be with.
Jackie: Okay, can you just stop -- stop and think, just for one minute. Look, Rick and Phoebe are madly in love. And despite everything that Ridge has done to keep them apart, they're still together. He's not going to accept that relationship. And sooner, rather than later, that will come between him and Brooke.
Nick: But it doesn't affect my feelings. I'm marrying Taylor, mother. I've also asked her to have my child.
Taylor: Nick and I are getting married.
Taylor: Why do most people make that decision?
Stephanie: I mean, why now? What's the hurry?
Taylor: Well, we both been married before, and we know what we want. We know what we're looking for, and we're not getting any younger. So, why wait?
Stephanie: But what if you can have your family back? What if you can have Ridge back?
Taylor: That ship has sailed, Stephanie. Clearly, the children were the only thing we had in common when I came back home. Now he wants to get on with his new life with Brooke --
Stephanie: But she's been lying to him. Lying to him about the kids and their relationship, because she supports it. You know, she doesn't really care what it will cost the family and the family business. The turmoil it will create. You know, Brooke is -- Brooke is still Brooke. Whatever feels good. And the hell with the consequences.
Taylor: Well, I'm sorry you now feel that Brooke is not right for your son. I thought you were going to treat me like a friend.
Stephanie: We are friends.
Taylor: Well, don't friends respect each other's choices? And I really want you to back off and leave Phoebe alone.
Stephanie: Are you saying that you support Phoebe having a relationship with Rick?
Brooke: Ridge, what are you thinking? You're worried about Rick and Phoebe making a scene.
Yvonne: Brooke, Ridge -- we were discussing the champagne reception tomorrow. We've invited an a-list group of celebrities and politicians. The turnout should be fantastic.
Claire: Everyone wants to celebrate the new store.
Yvonne: Well, I hope you'll both be at the reception?
Yvonne: Good. I have a feeling the two of you will be quita hit.
Rick: What do you mean?
Yvonne: Well, your photographs are all over the Internet. You make a striking couple. Our local paparazzi will eat you up.
Ridge: Rick and Phoebe aren't a couple.
Yvonne: Sorry, I just assumed.
Ridge: Well, all those pictures were taken out of context. Whatever you heard or read, isn't true. I can promise you that. Never was, never will be.
Stephanie: You're telling me that you're all right with Phoebe and Rick having a relationship?
Taylor: I'm not sure how I feel about that one.
Stephanie: What does that mean, Taylor?
Taylor: What that means is, I'm not comfortable with their age difference, and Rick has had a lot more life experience. And, I don't want Phoebe to get in over her head.
Stephanie: Well, I agree with you. But that's what her father is worried about as well.
Taylor: Look, am I thrilled that Phoebe has fallen in love with Rick? No. And I've told Phoebe as much, but she -- she is 18. She's not a little girl. They're going to do what they want to do, anyway. Other than advise them, there's nothing you or I or anybody can do to stop them.
Stephanie: You know what I'm worried about, really, is Ridge. I mean, I just don't know how he's going to react if they --
Taylor: Well, you know what? There's nothing I can about that, either. Ridge is not my problem. Nick is my life now. We're getting married, we're going to settle down. And God willing, we're starting a family together.
Brooke: Any other messages? All right, thank you.
Ridge: How's everything at the office?
Brooke: Everything seems to be under control. Lauren Fenmore called.
Brooke: You'll never guess who got married?
Ridge: Who's that?
Rick: Who'd she marry?
Brooke: Some bartender named Cain. I guess they met in Genoa City, but he's Australian.
Rick: I don't think he knows what he's getting himself into.
Waiter: Will there be anything else?
Ridge: No, I think we're set. That will do it. Thank you.
Brooke: Before we eat, I'd like to propose a toast.
Phoebe: Oh, wait, I need champagne.
Ridge: Just use your sparkling water.
Brooke: To our Sydney Boutique. And all of our other locations around the world. I hope they're a smashing success.
Phoebe: And to Brooke, for arranging this family dinner.
Ridge: Hear, hear.
Brooke: Hear, hear.
Ridge: I think it went very well today.
Brooke: Everybody's really excited about you, Phoebe.
Phoebe: Yeah, I just hope I don't do something stupid tomorrow and embarrass myself at the party.
Ridge: You won't. You won't. Just be yourself.
Phoebe: Okay, well, at least I have Rick for support.
Ridge: Yeah. I'm extremely happy about that.
Phoebe: You know, you can pretend nothing is going on between us, but that's not going to change anything. It's my life. I'm not telling you, you can't marry Brooke. Just like I'm not telling mom she can't marry Nick.
Ridge: What did you say?
Phoebe: Mom and Nick are engaged. She called earlier.
Ridge: Did you know about this?
Brooke: Yeah. I did.
Ridge: Why didn't you tell me?
Nick: I thought you left.
Jackie: I realized I don't want to be odds with you, Nicky. You know, yes, I do want you to be with Brooke, but we can't always get what we want, can we? What's important is that you're happy. I know how much you've always wanted to be a father. And if you think that Taylor is the right woman for you, then --
Jackie: Then I support you, 100%.
Nick: Oh. I don't know what to say.
Taylor: You don't know what to say about what?
Nick: Hey. Hi.
Nick: We were just discussing our engagement.
Jackie: And I'm positively ecstatic. Well, congratulations, Taylor.
Taylor: Thank you. That means a lot.
Jackie: Well, I know you two must have such a lot you need to talk about, so I'll leave. And we'll get together soon, and talk, just the three of us.
Taylor: Was that for real?
Nick: I think it was.
Taylor: What did you say to her?
Nick: I told her that you're the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with and she'd better get used to it.
Taylor: Did you tell her we want to have a baby?
Nick: Yeah, I did. That's kind of what did it.
Taylor: What do you mean?
Nick: My mother knows how important it is for me to be a father, and she knows I want you to have my child.
Taylor: About getting pregnant --
Taylor: I say there's no time like right now to get started. They say you are what you eat.
Phoebe: Dad, don't be angry with Brooke. I mean, mom wanted to tell you herself. She said she left you a message asking you to call her.
Ridge: Look, who your mother and I marry has nothing to do with you and Rick. They're two totally separate issues.
Phoebe: No, they're not. Dad, you have the right to be involved with whoever you want, just like I do. I mean, someone told you to stop loving Brooke, could you?
Ridge: Look, why don't we just talk about something else?
Phoebe: Rick and I love each other.
Ridge: Oh Phoebe, stop it.
Phoebe: If Brooke supports us, why can't you?
Ridge: I don't expect you to really understand where I'm coming from. But someday, when you're older, you'll have kids of your own, then you'll get it.
Rick: Why do you hate me so much?
Ridge: Rick, you thought you could take advantage of my daughter. You thought she would just be another notch on your belt, didn't you? But that's not going to happen. I will never, ever allow you to take advantage of Phoebe --
Brooke: Ridge, please.
Rick: So, what are you going to do, huh? Your daughter's 18 years old. Are you going to lock her in a room for the rest of her life?
Ridge: If that's what it takes, then you're damn right I will!
Phoebe: Stop it! Just stop it, Dad. I can't take any more of this. You're suffocating me!
Rick: Don't you get it? She doesn't want to be anywhere near you.
Brooke: Don't you see what you're doing? They just want to go to the beach together.
Ridge: Brooke, that's asking for trouble. What if somebody recognizes them and take a picture of them? Then it will be all over the Internet.
Brooke: Would that really be the end of the world?
Ridge: Brooke, I don't want to argue with you about this. I really feel bad that we're even having this conversation. I'm never going to accept Rick and Phoebe as a couple. Not ever!
[Knock on the door]
Rick: Phoebe? Phoebe, it's me. Open up.
Phoebe: You shouldn't be here. If my dad finds you're here --
Rick: I don't care about your dad, okay? I just want to make sure you're okay. Listen to me, come here. We're going to make this work.
Phoebe: You keep saying that.
Rick: We will. Listen, I don't care what your dad says, I don't care what your dad does, it does not change the way I feel about you. I love you.
Phoebe: I love you, too.
Phoebe: All right. You gotta go.
Phoebe: Come back later.
Rick: Okay. Okay. Okay, I gotta go. I'm really excited about the road ahead.
