Brooke: Thanks for everything. Both of you.
Eric: Our pleasure. We're glad to have you back.
Thorne: Yeah, you were missed around here.
Brooke: Not by everyone. Does Stephanie know I'm here?
Stephanie: She does and she's not happy about it.
Brooke: Good morning, Stephanie.
Stephanie: Is it?
Eric: I think it is. Thorne and I were just telling Brooke how happy we are to have her back on our team.
Stephanie: Oh, I'm sure the boys are thrilled.
Thorne: Pay no attention to mother, okay? You are a huge asset to this company. And deep down, mother knows it.
Stephanie: Mother knows it's a mistake to let her back in the building.
Eric: Let's not do this now, all right? This is a very special day. Brooke belongs with us. She always has, she always will.
Stephanie: Until one of you does something she deems unforgivable.
Thorne: Mother --
Brooke: It's all right, Thorne. You're right, Stephanie. I'm starting to believe that maybe I overreacted by breaking off my engagement when Ridge hit Rick.
Stephanie: You say that now? Actually, after that happened, I had hoped that we were finally through with you. But just like bad penny, here you are.
Rick: And then, after all that, you come back home to L.A.
Phoebe: That's a lot of cities.
Rick: Well, we got to get you around the country, and tour and promote this new fragrance. Do you think you can handle that?
Phoebe: Yeah. I mean, I'm really --
Rick: What's wrong?
Phoebe: I just -- I don't think this date's going work.
Rick: Why? Why not?
Phoebe: Well, Constantine scheduled studio time and I mean, he would be really upset if I had to cancel it.
Rick: Phoebe -- we have two really big personal appearances scheduled for you that day, see? I mean, we can't cancel them to fly you back here to L.A. For one day, it's just not practical.
Phoebe: But I -- what do I tell Constantine?
Rick: Just tell him the truth. You are the face of this brand -- of this fragrance; it's a big job. I mean, it has to come first. I'm sure that he will understand that.
Phoebe: Can you -- can you just try to reschedule it, please?
Rick: Phoebe, please, this is your job.
Phoebe: You're not being fair.
Rick: I'm not being fair? At least I'm not the one who's trying to change who you are --
Phoebe: That's not what he's trying to do --
Phoebe: No, it's not.
Rick: The amount of make-up that you had on yesterday, those clothes -- I mean, Phoebe, that's not you.
Phoebe: Maybe -- maybe it is. Maybe it's the new Phoebe.
Rick: That's the thing; it can't be the new Phoebe, okay? Quite frankly, we've invested a lot of money in you and this image and -- listen, you just can't change who you are because some record producer says you should.
Ridge: I agree. This is not the time for a total makeover.
Phoebe: Great. Now, it's two against one.
Ridge: Not exactly. Tell me something, Rick. Do you really care about my daughter's image, or do you just have it in for Constantine because he's seeing you for who you really are?
Ashley: Abby, I miss you, too, so, so much. I love you, honey. When am I going to talk to you again?
[Knock on the door]
Ashley: Just a second. Okay, well, say hi to your Uncle Jack, okay? I love you. I love you, baby.
Felicia: Hey, you.
Ashley: Hey, Felicia.
Felicia: I'm sorry to just drop in like this.
Ashley: Oh, no, it's okay. Come in. What's up?
Felicia: You tell me. I went by the office and your assistant said you took the day off. Are you feeling okay?
Ashley: Oh, that's sweet of you. Yeah, I mean, physically I'm fine.
Felicia: Okay, I'm not sure I know what that means.
Ashley: I'm kind of at loose ends. I just feel kind of lost.
Carl: I'm so sorry, Bridget. Please don't be mad at me.
Bridget: You said that we had proof.
Carl: I thought we did. When I saw the label on the petri dish, and it matched the one from the fertility lab, I thought we were home free. But then I found out --
Bridget: Cryo-storage is using the same labels now.
Carl: Which means we have no idea whose eggs were fertilized that night. It could be the donor's or --
Bridget: Could be my mother's.
Carl: I'm really sorry, Bridget.
Bridget: It's okay. Carl, I appreciate everything that you've done for me, but there's something that I have to do now.
Carl: Where are you going?
Bridget: Carl, I have to go tell Nick and Taylor the truth.
Doctor: No, Dr. Forrester, you don't need to do that.
Felicia: Why do you feel lost?
Ashley: You don't need to hear this right now, Felicia.
Felicia: Sure I do. I have nothing better to do. Is it about Rick?
Ashley: What do you mean, is it about Rick?
Felicia: I saw you yesterday. The way you two connected. There's something going on between you two.
Ashley: There was.
Felicia: I knew it.
Ashley: It's over. It happened a long time ago in Paris. Okay, it's over. He was part of the reason though, that I came to L.A. I didn't know that he and Phoebe were involved. I didn't know. And I needed a fresh start, and L.A. Seemed like the perfect place for that.
Felicia: And well, it has been. Come on. You have a terrific job. You're living at the beach, you're welcome. It seems like everything's falling into place.
Ashley: Yeah. There's one missing piece.
Felicia: A special someone?
Ashley: Oh, don't -- I don't want to be -- don't -- I'm not one of those women, okay? I'm not. I don't have to have a man to be happy. I've had too many messed up relationships for that. And I have Abby to think about. Poor thing. It looks like her father's heading for a divorce. So, that when she is here, she has to be stability. So, if I am going to get involved with someone, it can't be just any one. Does that make any sense to you?
Felicia: Absolutely. There are other men in L.A. besides Rick.
Ashley: Like Ridge? If it was up to your mother, he and I would be a lot more than co-workers, Felicia.
Felicia: Ridge is an amazing guy --
Ashley: Oh, no, not you, too.
Felicia: What? I'm just saying you could do a lot worse, okay? And I want Ridge to be happy and I want you to be happy. So, who knows? Maybe you two could be happy together.
Felicia: What? You like Ridge, don't you?
Ashley: I do like him. He's a terrific guy.
Felicia: Well, are you so infatuated with Rick, that you couldn't even consider a relationship with my big brother?
Ridge: You see, there's a nasty rumor floating around, something about you being involved with another woman.
Phoebe: Dad! Dad --
Ridge: I'd love Rick to answer the question.
Phoebe: No, I'll answer that question. Rick -- Rick admitted that there was someone else, but it was briefly, after we broke up. And it's over now. He promised me that. And I believe him.
Ridge: So, nothing's changed between you?
Phoebe: We're as committed as ever.
Ridge: Committed? Committed, how?
Phoebe: We're not rushing into anything. I mean, I'm focused on my job here and my music. I mean, Constantine thinks he can help me record a CD this summer. Isn't that great?
Ridge: Yeah, sweetie. That's very exciting.
Phoebe: You know, Rick has been concerned about how much time I've been spending with Constantine, but this is so important to me. And I just hope that he knows that. Because I don't want lose him.
Eric: This calls for a celebration.
Thorne: Sounds good to me. What did you have in mind?
Eric: I think maybe the Cafe Russe. I'll have molly get us a table.
Stephanie: Oh, my God, this is absolute insanity. You keep taking her back, no matter what she does, time and time again.
Eric: Listen, I know you don't like it. But I think Brooke has a great deal to contribute and I, for one, look forward to working with her.
Stephanie: Do you hear what you say or does it just rattle around in an empty space? Do the Forrester men only think with one part of their body? I don't care, Brooke, what they say. I am not welcoming you back.
Eric: I think that's enough, Stephanie.
Brooke: No, it's all right. Stephanie's right. I mean, my behavior has been irrational. My only justification is that Ridge let me down. Just like my father did. So, I didn't think I could trust him anymore. But then, I remembered what happened with Grant Chambers and how he protected my son. And I was reminded what a decent, wonderful man he is. And that is how I feel about all of you. Including you, Stephanie. You would just mean a lot to me if I could work alongside all of you at Forrester. I really want that in my life right now. More than I can say.
Bridget: Dr. Mills --
Dr. Mills: Do you have a minute?
Bridget: Yes. Carl this is --
Carl: I know who this is. Dr. Mills, chief of staff.
Dr. Mills: Hello, Carl.
Carl: Hello. I'll be out of your hair.
Dr. Mills: No I want to talk to you too.
Carl: You do?
Dr. Mills: I understand you have been helping Dr. Forrester do some investigating in the lab.
Bridget: Dr. Mills --
Dr. Mills: It's okay Carl, I'm not accusing you of negligence.
Bridget: Dr. Mills it was my idea --
Dr. Mills: I realize that doctor. But part of my job is making sure that the staff is using its time effectively. Nobody's stirring up trouble where there isn't any, do you understand that, Carl?
Dr. Mills: Good. Then if you stay focused on your work, this matter is forgotten. You're free to go.
Carl: Thank you.
Bridget: Dr. Mills, I hope that you're not upset with me.
Dr. Mills: Not upset. I just want to know why you turned to a member of the custodial staff when you could have come to me. I know the truth Bridget. What really happened in the lab that night. As a new parent I wanted to do everything right.
Dr. Mills: I've done some research of my own. I have some news I think you'll like. I contacted cryo-storage, where your mother's eggs were stored. I asked them to check records for the day in question. Apparently your mother's eggs were thawed, prepared for insemination and logged out at 7:36.
Bridget: Okay --
Dr. Mills: I also contacted the fertility lab. Do you know what time the donor's eggs and Mr. Marone's sperm were mixed?
Bridget: No sir, not off the top of my head.
Dr. Mills: 7:40.
Dr. Mills: Just four minutes later. 240 seconds, hardly enough time for your mother's eggs to make it all the way to the fertility lab. It's impossible that your mother's eggs were used in the fertilization. The time frame simply doesn't support it.
Bridget: I don't know what to say.
Dr. Mills: Well you could say that you'll put this episode behind you. I know how worried you've been. But now we know there was never a reason to be concerned. Everything is as it should be.
Rick: Hi. Can I talk to you for a second?
Phoebe: Yeah --
Rick: Hey --
Rick: I was thinking about what you said before -- about how you hoped that I wouldn't go anywhere. I want you to know that I'm not going anywhere.
Phoebe: Even if?
Rick: Even if your music career starts to take off and you have to spend a lot more time with Constantine, I'm not going to like it at all. [Laughing] But -- I am not going to stand your way because I love you and I believe in you and I support you and I know how much this means to you. Come here.
Phoebe: You're incredible. You know that.
Rick: I do, yeah.
Rick: I think that's going a little bit too far.
Phoebe: No, I don't. I've been -- I've been so scared and it's like all of these incredible things have been happening to me with modeling and with my music career, maybe -- you know, and I want to do everything that you did. I want to travel and I want to meet new people and -- I just -- I don't know if I want that, if I can't share it with you.
Rick: Listen to me; I think it's amazing, I think it's great that you want to do all of that. That you want to travel the world and experience life and you should, you should do all of that everything that you can.
Phoebe: Just promise me.
Phoebe: Promise me that even if we're far apart, promise me you'll stay faithful.
Rick: I promise.
Phoebe: I promise that I'm not going to make you wait forever, okay. I'm not -- I'm not -- I'm not ready now, but I will be. And when that day comes -- it will be perfect.
Ashley: I never said I was in love with Rick.
Felicia: No, but you never said you weren't. You know what? I think I know what's going on here. I think you like Rick because he's safe.
Felicia: Yes. Like a distraction. A fling, you don't have to worry about falling in love with him and making a real commitment.
Ashley: I've never had a problem making a commitment in my life.
Felicia: Ashley come on, I'm just saying, I get it, I've been there. You get burned often enough and you start thinking it's not worth it. Why put yourself out there again? But I am telling you, Ridge isn't like other guys.
Ashley: Well that much is obvious.
Felicia: So you've noticed.
Ashley: Yeah, I mean, I admit he's the kind of person I could fall for.
Ashley: But I don't want to fall in love, at least not right now. I think Ridge is wonderful and I could see us possibly getting together but I don't want to be involved seriously with anybody. Not right now, okay? There's nothing you or anybody else is going to do or say to change my mind.
Eric: Well, this is a place of business.
Brooke: I need to get to work, too.
Stephanie: Just a minute. Now that we're alone, let's get a couple of things straight. You've wormed your way back into this company. I'm not happy about it. Don't think you're going to worm your way back into Ridge's life. Just forget about that.
Brooke: I have a child with Ridge, Stephanie. And that's a very powerful connection. Even you can't destroy something like that.
Ridge: Can I have a minute alone with Brooke, please?
Stephanie: Just because you share a child with him doesn't mean you have to share a life with him --
Ridge: Enough, Mother. Enough. I guess I don't have to ask what that was about.
Brooke: No, this is my first day on the job and she wanted to make it very clear that she didn't want me here. But you do. You do want me here, don't you, Ridge?
Ridge: Logan, you know how much I value and respect your work.
Brooke: Yes -- yeah, I know. That's why I thought maybe we can get together and I could discuss my ideas for the bedroom line with you over dinner. That is, if you don't have any other plans -- with Ashley.
Ridge: Well, maybe dinner's not such a good idea.
Brooke: Yeah, okay. We'll just take it slowly. You know, just so you know, the feelings that Nick and I shared, that's over. I have no more ties to Nick, at all.
[Knock on the door]
Ashley: Hi, Stephanie.
Stephanie: Hi, Ashley. May I come in?
Stephanie: Thank you.
Ashley: Is everything all right?
Stephanie: Um, well, I have a sort of, tiny crisis on my hands. And I was hoping that you might help me with a solution.
Ashley: Okay, well, what is it?
Stephanie: Brooke and Ridge -- you know, he always seems to be caught up in this sort of chain of heartbreak and disappointment, because he's involved with the wrong woman. And I thought, you know, there might just be some wonderful young woman out there who could help him get off this crazy merry-go-round that he's on, and help yourself at the same time.
Ashley: By having a relationship with him?
Ridge: Well, he's alone and you're alone. And he's a wonderful man.
Ashley: Yes. Yes, he is a wonderful man, Stephanie.
Stephanie: Is there any chance that you might see yourself interested in him?
Ashley: What are you suggesting?
Stephanie: Well, I'm suggesting that you and he, it seems to me, are of a like mind. You're both decent and respectable people. Kind, loving, caring parents. And Brooke is really unstable. You know, she just keeps bouncing back and forth between Ridge and Nick, and Nick and Ridge, and I'm worried about him. So, I sort of thought I'd come down here, just you know, one mother to another and -- any chances that you might be interested in saving him from her clutches?
