Ashley: All the secrecy about us. I can't deal with it.
Rick: I know you want to do the right thing, but I'm telling you, it will be a disaster.
Constantine: That's cool man. I think we got it.
Engineer: It's good.
Constantine: Yeah, it's good there. All right. Great work, Big Daddy.
[Cell phone rings] Ridge?
Ridge: Find out anything?
Constantine: No, not yet.
Ridge: Well, you know what I'm talking about?
Constantine: Yeah, trust me. I don't like the idea either of Phoebe being with someone who, you know --
Ridge: Who may still have something going on the side. See if you can find out who this other woman was.
Constantine: I'm working on it. Got to go.
Rick: So you recorded a voicemail left for me, and played it for Phoebe. That's great.
Constantine: I didn't know who the hell's phone it was. I had to figure it out. And yeah, when I figured out what you were up to, I thought Phoebe had the right to know that she was being cheated on. So wait a second. Which one of us does that make the bad guy?
Phoebe: Guys! I don't want you two fighting over something that's over and done with, okay. If anyone should be keeping a grudge, it's me and I'm not. Constantine was trying to be a good friend and it turned out to be good for our relationship too. Okay, so there's not a problem. Right?
Ashley: Good morning.
Ridge: Good morning. I think the day after Independence Day should be anything but independent. When can we have a little time alone? I think we have a lot to talk about.
Ashley: We do.
Ridge: And not talk about.
Stephanie: Well never have I been so happy to see personnel policy broken.
Phoebe: Look, you and this other woman is a dead issue for me. So why can't it be for you?
Rick: Because Constantine insists on pushing my buttons.
Phoebe: You came in here and jumped all over him, didn't you? And so what if he was, don't let it ruin this for you. We're getting ready to record a song.
Rick: Well having somebody to outdo brings out the best in me.
Phoebe: Yeah well, it doesn't with me. I hate this argument. I don't want to talk or hear about this other woman again, okay. I know she doesn't mean anything to you and that's all that matters to me.
Constantine: You two lovebirds ready? Or do you need to like -- make a phone call first?
Ashley: Well I guess I better read up on those personnel policies, huh?
Stephanie: Uh-uh. You're both fired. Just for the day. Why don't you take off and have some fun?
Ridge: Actually, we were until you walked in.
Stephanie: Oh, and I was delighted to see that. Not that I'm getting ahead of myself.
Ridge: Now you're embarrassing her.
Stephanie: Well I haven't seen my son for the longest time be so -- relaxed.
Ridge: Now you're embarrassing me.
Stephanie: Why don't you go to Catalina? I mean, after all you've got a lot of getting to know each other better to do, don't you?
[Brooke clears her throat]
Brooke: I thought we were meeting on those new soaps in the Phoebe line.
Ashley: Yeah, yeah. So did I.
Stephanie: Oh, those soaps will smell the same today as the do tomorrow and the day after. So -- you remember that hotel that we used to take you to? Eric and I when you guys were kids. The pines.
Brooke: Well, why don't we all go? Take the soaps.
Ashley: Here are the last two. What do you think?
Ridge: They both still smell like the perfume.
Ashley: Yeah, well the big difference is really in the concentration. In the hardness and the stability of the soaps.
Stephanie: You could wash your hands all day long and it wouldn't wash away the guilt.
Brooke: Every time I walk in here, it's like déjà vu. I haven't spent so much time in a lab since -- oh since the belief formula.
Ashley: Those were the days I take it?
Stephanie: Yes, they sure were. Thank God they're over. Speaking of chemistry, I thought you handled the children beautifully the other night. Were they all excited and too excited to go to sleep? I was worried about that.
Brooke: It's very creamy.
Ashley: Yeah, actually I think that's the one with the best balance. Don't you?
Brooke: Mm-hmm. The scent is subtle.
Stephanie: Subtle? You wouldn't know subtle if it bit you on --
Ashley: You know, I'm really not comfortable with this not so veiled antagonism.
Brooke: Yeah, well. It's not coming from me.
Stephanie: Let me ask you, why are you here? Is it just to keep an eye on Ridge?
Ridge: Come on mother.
Brooke: I'm here because Rick couldn't be here. But I don't know why I need to explain that to you. My only purpose to be here is to humiliate me, then I might as well leave.
Ridge: Was that really necessary?
Stephanie: Was is it necessary for you to invite her back into the company?
Ashley: Do you think you want to sort this out with Brooke? I really don't need you making enemies for me.
Stephanie: She's already your enemy. Just be thankful you don't have a son or a husband she can sleep with.
[Rick and Phoebe humming]
Constantine: Okay, is that enough warm-up for you guys?
Rick: Yeah, but I wouldn't really worry about that. I would worry about being shown up.
Phoebe: You know what, I think the music sounds really great.
Constantine: Yeah, my grandmother would have really loved that song.
Rick: Oh man. Ready?
[Phoebe and Rick singing]
So bright, night so fine. Keep your heart here with mine. Life's a dream, we are dreaming. Race the moon, catch the wind. Ride the night to the end. Seize the day, stand up for the light I want to spend my lifetime loving you. If that is all in life I ever do. Through our joy, through our pain.
Ashley: Can you understand that I don't want to be positioned as Brooke's competition?
Stephanie: You are the competition in her mind. That's how she sees you.
Ashley: Okay, let's be honest with each other. You don't know me very well, and this thing with Ridge could fizzle out in a couple of weeks.
Stephanie: I don't think so.
Ashley: Not only is Brooke essential to your company, she's a member of your family. And Stephanie, you treat her very badly.
Stephanie: She is not a Forrester by any stretch of the imagination.
Ashley: You consider Rick and Bridget family, but not their mother?
Stephanie: Well, it hasn't been easy. Especially where Rick is concerned. Then I always have to remind myself what an atrocious upbringing they had. You know, long periods of neglect, followed by guilty smothering -- after the father of the month disappeared.
Ashley: Okay, okay. Look, I don't want to hear this. Excuse me.
Stephanie: Well maybe you should. You know, Brooke always means well. It's just -- she's been a real disaster for her children. And for Ridge, especially. I'm hoping you're the perfect antidote.
Ashley: How can you be so sure? I'm not. Ridge and I are just beginning.
Stephanie: That's true. But, at least you're not sleeping with every man in my family. Are you? Nice having this little chat with you. I -- nothing else to see me through. If I can spend my lifetime loving you. Loving you.
Phoebe: What do you think?
Rick: I think we nailed it.
Constantine: Yeah. Wow. Um -- I think it'll need some tweaking.
Rick: What? You want us to do that again? You just want to wear out our voices man.
Constantine: Easy tiger. I'm talking about in the booth. No, I totally agree. I think that song could not have been sung any better.
Phoebe: Thank you.
Rick: So what happens now?
Constantine: Just some remixing and then it'll be ready for the contest. Don't worry, you'll have your approval.
[Cell phone rings] Oh, umm -- it's work. I gotta take this, okay. I'll be right back. Hello?
Ashley: Hey. I need to see you.
Rick: Ashley, this is not a good time for me.
Ashley: And believe me, it never will be. There's a conversation that we have to have. I'd rather have it with you before I have it with Ridge.
Brooke: Maybe this was a mistake.
Ridge: Which? We've made so many.
Brooke: Thinking that I could come back here to work.
Ridge: Maybe it was.
Brooke: I thought you wanted me here.
Ridge: I did.
Brooke: Past tense?
Ridge: You're the best at what you do, Logan.
Brooke: Is that the only reason?
Ridge: My mother's never going to change.
Brooke: I can handle your mother. I've had years of practice.
Ridge: It's different now.
Ridge: Ashley for one thing.
Brooke: You're really serious about her?
Ridge: You know I am. I don't know where it's going to go, but -- I'd like to find out. Do you want to be around to watch that?
Brooke: Ridge, I didn't come here just for the job. I came for you. I thought maybe we could work things out.
Ridge: I thought that's what I wanted too. For a long time after Sydney, that's all I thought about. The plans we made. The family I thought we would become.
Brooke: It's all still there. So what's stopping us?
Ridge: I am. I guess it took seeing it was possible again to make me understand. I just don't trust being loved by you.
Constantine: Whatcha doing?
Phoebe: Checking C.J.'s website.
Phoebe: He's the guy who owns Insomnia. He's always promoting something. You met him. Rick and Phoebe versus Constantine and Phoebe. Who's better? You choose. Order online tickets or stop by Insomnia while they're still available.
Constantine: Dude sounds like Don King.
Phoebe: And try our new flavor. Thrilla in Vanilla.
Constantine: Do we really have to do this?
Phoebe: Look, when we win -- and we'll win. Okay, Rick will leave us alone.
Constantine: That boyfriend of yours, he's --
Phoebe: He loves me. Okay? It's -- it's sweet.
Ashley: Privacy's good. Except when it's too much of a good thing.
Rick: Have you told Ridge about us?
Ashley: Not yet. But it is going to happen.
Rick: Ashley, what good could possibly come from that?
Ashley: Rick, starting a relationship with this kind of secret is not only dangerous, it's stupid. And I'm not going to do it.
Rick: Even a relationship that's doomed to crash and burn?
Ashley: However you feel about Ridge or my seeing him is completely irrelevant.
Rick: Okay, how about what Ridge thinks of me? Ashley, if you tell him that you and I slept together, you will not have a relationship with Ridge. Good or bad.
Ashley: That's the chance I'm taking. Because I learned my lesson from last marriage. I can't have anything meaningful with somebody with this big fat lie hanging over my head.
Rick: Nobody is lying. Okay, nobody's lying. Because nobody's asking. Phoebe does not want to know anything about the woman that I was -- that I was seeing when we were broken up. Everybody has a right to keep a few things to themselves.
Ashley: It's in the way though. Every time with Ridge, I can feel it.
Rick: So let me get something straight. In order to clear your conscience, clear your head, you're willing to throw me to the dogs? Do you have any idea how much this would crush Phoebe? And if Ridge finds out that you and I had sex, that we were involved, I mean -- that's all he needs to break Phoebe and me up for good.
Ashley: It's going to come out, eventually. Too many people know, Rick. Or they can put the pieces together. It's just a matter of whether or not we've got the guts to beat them to it.
Rick: The pilot -- the pilot who flew us to Mexico. Do you think that he would keep his job if he told anybody what happened between us on the jet or in Mexico? Ashley, this is my family. Okay, you can drop your bomb and take off. I can't.
Ashley: I'm sorry, but I'm really doing you the courtesy of telling you what I've decided to do. I'm not -- asking for permission.
Brooke: Well I guess my working here is creating a lot of tension. So maybe I should just resign. I mean, would that help?
Ridge: It makes sense. I don't think it's a matter of helping though.
Brooke: Well, then what? How would we see each other? Or do you really believe that not seeing each other for a while would help work through this?
Ridge: It's already been worked through, Brooke. We just don't want to see it. Whenever things went wrong with me, I always turned to you. When things went wrong with you, you turned to me.
Brooke: Ridge, you can't reduce a lifetime of loving each other to that.
Ridge: No, I'm not trying to do that. Do I love you? Yes, of course I do. But we just don't seem to be able to make each other happy.
Brooke: I know I hurt you when I went back to Nick. But I was just so confused.
Ridge: I can't buy that anymore, Brooke. It's like you were confused, now you're not. I can't accept that anymore. Look, what I did to Rick was wrong. You had every right to break it off with me, but just to turn around and run back to Nick the way you did --
Brooke: Ridge, I was in shock. The only reason I did it was because --
Ridge: Because you're in love with him. Why don't you just say it?
Brooke: No, no. You're wrong. All that has been resolved. He said he wanted to be with Taylor and I accepted that.
Ridge: Brooke, he's unavailable. That's resolve to you?
Brooke: Ridge, we've forgiven each other for so much. Why can't you just forgive me for this one mistake?
Ridge: I would be able to forgive it, if I felt like it was a mistake. But I don't feel it is that you wanted a future with Nick. I believe you still want that. And the fact that you can't have it with him is no reason to want it with me.
Brooke: No, what I want is the life that we had planned. Not what we had, but what we planned. That's what I want, Ridge.
Ridge: It's a beautiful dream. Dreams are easy to love. I just want a wide-awake life that makes me happy. I wanted it to be with you -- but no matter how hard we'd try, it just seemed like we couldn't make it work. Now I feel like I owe it to myself to keep trying. Without you.
