Nick: One thing I know for sure, and that is I did not kill Shane McGrath. But I believe you know who did. And I'm not leaving here until I get it out of you.
Ridge: My mother had nothing to do with Shane's death.
Nick: What about you?
Brooke: Nick did not kill Shane McGrath.
Rick: Lt. Baker thinks he did.
Brooke: And you actually believe that?
Rick: No, no, of course not.
Brooke: None of this makes any sense.
Rick: Look mom, I'm sorry that I had to interrupt your trip with Hope and R.J. I just thought you wanted to know about this.
Brooke: Honey, you were right to call.
Phoebe: Do you think hope has any idea?
Brooke: She just knows that I'm upset, but she doesn't know why.
Rick: Look, Nick is innocent. I'm sure hope will be just fine though all of this.
Brooke: I have to go see him.
Rick: Whoa, wait a second, mom. Do you think that's a really good idea?
Brooke: I want Nick to know that I believe him. And that I'm there to help in any way I can. I'll see you later.
Felicia: A pack of wild dogs out there.
Bridget: Dad, are you sure that calling this press conference was the best thing to do?
Eric: Yeah, the press has been calling all morning. Everybody in the press wants some kind of a statement here.
Ashley: They were camped out in front of the building first thing this morning.
Felicia: Dad's right. Nick's our biggest rival. With all the animosity, the press are going to hound us until they know where we stand on all of this.
Thorne: I leave town, all hell breaks loose.
Eric: Thorne, welcome back.
Thorne: How's everyone here?
Eric: Well frankly, we're reeling from everything here.
Thorne: I can't believe it. Nick killed McGrath?
Bridget: No, please stop saying that. This is just a mistake.
Thorne: Bridget, I'm not taking any pleasure in this, okay? But the man's been charged with murder, his focus has to shift.
Felicia: Might be a good opportunity, of course, to get Forrester Creations back.
Eric: Actually, that could be, but right now, we have to address this thing. We have to keep the press from sensationalizing it.
Bridget: They already know that Shane was obsessed with Phoebe.
Eric: Yeah, well they're not going to get anything from us. I told Rick to keep Phoebe away from here. She's not going to have to answer any kind of question.
Bridget: Well, that's a good idea.
Eric: Look, we'll make a brief statement and that will be the end of it. We'll put it to rest -- in the hands of the police.
Felicia: Ridge is Phoebe's father -- nick's half-brother. Nothing's going to be put to rest unless they talk to Ridge.
Nick: I'm talking to you. Did you kill him?
Stephanie: I thought lt. Baker arrested you?
Nick: But we all know that I didn't do it. So, who did? Forrester, there a reason you've suddenly become mute?
Ridge: I have nothing to say to you, nick.
Stephanie: My sentiments, exactly.
Nick: I am not letting you manipulate the system, just like I didn't let you get away with what you did to my mother.
Stephanie: Are you threatening me?
Nick: Somebody set me up, and I'm looking at the two most obvious candidates right here. Desperate man stalking your daughter. You, the over-protective father. Can you look me in the eye, Forrester? Tell me you had nothing to do with this?
Stephanie: I'll tell you something, Nick. Leave or I'll call the police.
Nick: Stephanie, would you really let an innocent man go to prison?
Stephanie: Well, there's nothing innocent about you. I'm sure you're guilty of something, somewhere, some terrible crime. And perhaps, this will be your punishment.
Nick: It's really all about jealousy, isn't it? Everything that you loved, Brooke, Taylor, Forrester Creations -- and it's all coming to me. And it just eats you up inside. So, you pin this on me? Bad move. I'm not letting you get away with this.
Stephanie: That miserable son of a bitch.
Ridge: You know, for all I care, that miserable son of a bitch can just rot in --
Stephanie: I'd be happy if he'd rot in hell and I'd be happy to shove him down there with my own two hands.
[Phone rings] Hello?
Eric: Oh, good, there you are.
Stephanie: What is it?
Eric: Listen, every reporter in town is in our showroom demanding some kind of a statement.
Stephanie: Well, give them one.
Eric: I will. But they're going to want to hear from Ridge. Do you know where he is?
Stephanie: Yes, he's here with me.
Eric: All right, then the both of you get down here right away.
Stephanie: That was your father. The press are down at the office. They want a statement from you. And I suppose you're going to have to, actually. Nick, is after all, your half-brother. Listen to me, please. You haven't done anything wrong. And unless you want to spend the next 20 years in prison, you have got to start believing that. What happened with Shane was an accident. It's what you did afterwards, that was the mistake. You can't lie to the press. So, I think you're going to have to tell them some part of the truth. I think you should tell them that you're terribly sorry about what happened to this young man. Tell them that your thoughts and your prayers go out to his family, wherever they might be. Tell them you believe in the criminal justice system. But for God's sake, please be careful what you say. Don't let anything slip out. If you confess, you're going to end up in prison. Nick started this war. We're going to end it. As far as I'm concerned, he's brought this on himself.
Rick: This guy is unbelievable. Look, Phoebe, my mom knows that Nick is innocent.
Phoebe: Your mom is concerned for Nick. But if she thinks my mom is going to appreciate her coming by --
Rick: My mom still has feelings for Nick, okay? Just because your mom and Nick are married doesn't mean that those feelings just disappear.
Phoebe: If our family is having a press conference, shouldn't we be there?
Rick: I have explicit instructions to keep you away.
Phoebe: Grandpa doesn't want me answering questions about Shane.
Rick: No, and I agree. Besides, you and I need some -- we need some time alone. Just the two of us, you know?
Phoebe: What are we doing here?
Rick: I know. Good point. We should get out of here. We should -- let's go on a picnic, you know? Or just head out to the beach or something.
Phoebe: All right. Let's go.
Rick: Let's go. Let's get out of here.
C.J.: Whoa, whoa, whoa, hey, not so fast. Look, I know you guys said that you weren't in the mood --
Rick: C.J. --
C.J.: Come on, Casey is killing business up there.
Phoebe: He's not that bad. Look.
C.J.: Yeah. He sucks. You're too kind. Look, just one song. Please?
Nick: Of course she claimed to know nothing. She was lying. I could see it.
Taylor: Let me. Don't worry. If it's anyone evil, I'll exorcise him. Brooke?
Brooke: I heard the news.
Nick: It's really nothing.
Brooke: Nothing? Nick, you've been charged with murder! Obviously, it's been some kind of mistake.
Nick: Yeah, Brooke, I guess that would depend on who you're talking to.
Brooke: You think somebody's setting you up, don't you?
[Cell phone rings]
Nick: Nick Marone. It's the P.I. I got to take this.
Brooke: He hired a private investigator?
Taylor: Whatever it takes to clear his name.
Brooke: Taylor --
Taylor: Nick can't go to prison. I mean, not when I'm about to have his child.
Brooke: You're pregnant? Already?
Taylor: I had the embryos implanted last night. Bridget did the procedure. And she thinks there's a really good chance that I'm already pregnant.
C.J.: One song, please? For an old friend.
Rick: Sorry, bud. Not today. I'll see you later, though.
Phoebe: Sorry, too. Next week.
C.J. All right, ladies and gents. Back by popular demand, Rick and Phoebe!
[Cheers and applause] Come on.
[Phoebe and Rick singing]
I got chills they're multiplyin' and I'm losing control the power you're supplyin' it's electrifyin' you better shape up 'cause I need a man and my heart is set on you you better shape up you better understand to my heart I must be true nothin' left nothin' left for me to do you're the one that I want you are the one I want ooh-ooh-ooh honey the one that I want you are the one I want ooh-ooh-ooh honey the one that I want you are the one I want ooh-ooh-ooh, the one I need, oh, yes, indeed you're the one that I want you are the one I want ooh-ooh-ooh, honey the one that I want you are the one I want ooh-ooh-ooh, honey the one that I want you are the one I want ooh-ooh-ooh, the one I need oh, yes, indeed you're the one that I want
Taylor: You know, I've endured a lot in my life, Brooke. And -- I mean, I'm just trying to get my life together, and -- you know, to think that I'm carrying Nick's child and then that he might be accused of a murder that he didn't commit --
Brooke: If you want my help, if you need anything, I'm here for you. And this thing with Nick, it's all gonna get straightened out, because there's no way he could do anything like this. I still care about him, but I want him to be happy. I want you both to be happy.
Taylor: Thank you.
Nick: The Forresters are having some kind of a press conference.
Brooke: The press wants to know where everybody stands.
Nick: Well, maybe they'll start asking the right questions, 'cause this Lt. Baker has no interest in it.
Brooke: The right questions?
Nick: The right questions, like who had motive to want this guy dead? Whose daughter was this guy harassing?
Brooke: Are you suggesting that Ridge might have killed Shane?
Nick: That is what I'm suggesting.
Eric: You know what you're gonna say?
Eric: The press, they want to hear from you.
Stephanie: How was your time away with your baby daughter?
Thorne: It was good. You know, with everything that's been happening, I just want her to know that I'll always be there for her. And that she's the most important person in my life. And that I will do anything to protect her. And honestly, with Taylor marrying Nick, being away helped me. It helped me get things back in perspective.
Stephanie: The biggest mistake Taylor made was not saying with you.
Eric: All right. Come on, let's do this. Hello. Thanks for your patience. We are, all of us, saddened to hear of Shane McGrath's death. He was a troubled young man, and our hearts and our prayers go out to his family. As for nick Marone's arrest, he is our competitor, our rival, but we take no pleasure in what's happened. It's all in the hands of the justice system now.
Jarrett: Uh, Mr. Forrester?
Eric: Yes, Jarrett?
Jarrett: This question is for Ridge. Nick Marone is your half-brother. He's been arrested and charged with murder. Do you think he did it? Did he kill Shane McGrath?
C.J.: That was great! You guys are a hit!
Rick: Yes, and you will never be pulling a stunt like that ever again.
C.J.: I promise, not until next week.
[Rick laughs] Thank you, guys. That was awesome.
Rick: You're welcome. Come here.
[Phoebe laughs] I just have to tell you how much I love watching you do that. You are so great.
Phoebe: Yeah, so were you.
Rick: And that thing you did with your hips was amazing.
Phoebe: The thing you did with your hands was amazing.
Rick: You know, you are the one that I want.
Phoebe: Then take me.
C.J.: Yes, this looks great.
Madison: Yeah, it does.
C.J.: Thank you. Hey, who says publicity isn't free, huh? Now we just have to upload our two little songbirds onto the net, and we will be in business. Now the entire planet will know how great karaoke is at the Insomnia.
Taylor: Nick, slow down.
Nick: But let's look at the facts here. Shane McGrath was harassing your daughter. He practically raped her. And we know about Forrester's temper.
Brooke: Oh, I think he has a temper, but I don't think he would try to kill someone.
Nick: I'm being set up for murder. We know the characters involved. You don't think Stephanie's behind this, pulling the strings on this deal?
Taylor: There's no doubt that she's capable of that. But you know, ridge killing somebody and then setting you up with the intention to frame you?
Nick: Regardless how this kid died -- we'll never know the answer to that -- but the fact is he's dead, and I'm the one they want to hang for it. I'm not gonna sit around and wait for these cops to do their job. I'm stepping in. I'm gonna find out who did it. And right now, everything points to Forrester.
Jarrett: We're waiting, Ridge. Do you believe Nick Marone killed Shane McGrath?
Stephanie: Clearly, the news of Mr. McGrath's tragic death and Mr. Marone's arrest has been difficult for all of us. And as my husband said just a few moments ago, we take absolutely no pleasure in any of this.
Jarrett: Then Ridge has nothing to say? Nothing at all?
Stephanie: Nick started this war. We're going to end it. As far as I'm concerned, he's brought this on himself.
Ridge: I am very sorry for Shane McGrath and his family. As far as Nick goes, he's done far too much over the years to try and destroy my family for me to ever feel sorry for him.
Jarrett: Then you do believe that Nick Marone killed Shane McGrath, even though he's declared his innocence? Is there no one else you can imagine who could have committed the crime?
Ridge: The police have completed their investigation. All the evidence has been gathered. And as my father said, now we just have to trust the criminal justice system.
Nick: You did it, Forrester. I just gotta prove it. I am not gonna be the one who rots in jail. You are.
