Phoebe: Hey. Hope and R.J. are having a blast with Catherine.
Ridge: I'm surprised they haven't grown fins by now. You were the same way as a kid. We could barely pry you out of the pool.
Phoebe: You working on Spring?
Phoebe: I like it. It's great.
Ridge: So, you heading to the beach? Finally decided to join the world of the living again?
Phoebe: I figured I'd have to sometime.
Ridge: It's good to see you finally getting out, kiddo. Who're you gonna meet?
Phoebe: Constantine. He has this project -- we're kind of working on it together.
Ridge: Sounds interesting.
Phoebe: It's keeping me busy.
Ridge: Busy's good.
Phoebe: Like you said, life goes on.
Ridge: So you're okay, then?
Phoebe: Trying. Trying. And you?
Ridge: Hanging in there. Your old man's gonna be fine, no need to worry.
Phoebe: Of course, I'm gonna worry. Dad, both of our hearts got broken. That's why you're working at home, isn't it? So you don't have to see Ashley?
Ridge: Okay, now you know you're really like your mom right now.
Phoebe: Why? 'Cause I can tell you're upset?
Ridge: Okay, what bugs me the most is the fact that Ashley knew how you felt about Rick. She knew how hurt you were going to be by doing all that.
Phoebe: I'm sure Ashley didn't deliberately set out to mess things up for me, you know. I mean -- listen, I know you really, really liked her.
Ridge: Yeah well, it's over.
Phoebe: But not just because of me, I hope. Look, if you can't get past what Ashley did because it's Rick, then that's one thing. But don't break up with her just to support me. Okay? I mean, it's sweet and I really do appreciate it, but -- I'm going to be fine, dad. Really. And I just want you to be fine, too. Really. Okay. I love you. Bye.
Ashley: Hi. Second quarter sales figures.
Stephanie: Wonderful. How are they?
Ashley: Well, Phoebe eau de toilette did better than the perfume in all markets. Which tells me that our target age group doesn't want to spend so much money and they might even prefer the lighter formulation. So, depending on our sales over Christmas, we might want to drop the heavier formulation all together.
Stephanie: Well -- gosh, I think we'd go with your judgment. I mean, after all, you're the expert in this area.
Ashley: I am, huh? When it comes to business I'm -- I'm the expert.
Stephanie: Yes, and fortunately for you, I'm the expert where my son's concerned.
Ashley: Speaking of Ridge, I have a copy of these figures for him as well. Molly says he's not in. Is he working from home?
Stephanie: Yeah, he stayed home with the children.
Ashley: Right -- and if he can avoid me as well, all the better, right?
Stephanie: Ashley, he's upset because it was Rick. You know, if had been anybody else --
Ashley: I know. There's nothing I can do about that. And apparently, there's nothing I can do to turn things around with your son, either.
Constantine: All right, vote for Phoebe and Constantine. Here you go. Website's on there. That's me on the flier. All right. Here you guys go. Vote for Phoebe and Constantine. Check out the website, all right? Here you go. Take some home for your friends. Pass them out, spread the word, all right? Here you go. Vote for Phoebe and Constantine. "Everybody loves" gonna be a big, big song. Check out the website. Boldfacerecords.Com hey. Here you go.
Madison: Huh. So I log on to Boldfacerecords.Com --
Constantine: Hey guys. Here you go. Vote for Phoebe and Constantine, "Everybody loves." It's gonna be a big, big hit. Check it out.
Madison: And then I vote for either your duet with Phoebe or Rick's?
Phoebe: You got it.
Phoebe: How's it going?
Madison: Good. I actually just heard about the Boldface challenge.
Phoebe: Oh, yeah. Constantine's telling everyone about it.
Constantine: Hey guys, here you go. Check it out, check it out. That's me on there and they're all autographed for you guys, all right? So take them home and give them out to your friends, okay? And look, there she is now. Phoebe Forrester, ladies and gentleman.
Constantine: Let's give here a little hand.
[Applause] Hey, come on. Tell them who to vote for.
Phoebe: Constantine and me! "Everybody loves!"
Rick: Hey everyone, what's going on? Oh look, fliers. Cute. Pretty high-tech, huh?
Constantine: Anything to get the word out.
Rick: I couldn't agree more. Hey guys, come on out here. I want to show you something.
[Cheers and applause]
Ashley: I don't mean to sound so negative. I just don't have the faintest idea how to fix things with your son.
Stephanie: Well, let me try. Occasionally he listens to me.
Ashley: Umm -- I think you gotta stay out of this one.
Ashley: It's a very delicate situation.
Stephanie: Well, surprisingly, when subtlety is required, occasionally I can rise to the occasion.
Ashley: Well, nonetheless, I think Ridge and I need to handle this one on our own. I've got some work to finish up and I'm going to head over to Ridge's. And I'm going to apologize again. He will either forgive me or he won't. But either way, we can get on with our lives.
Rick: Would you mind passing these out? Thank you so much. Appreciate it. Hey there.
Constantine: Forrester Originals T-shirts? Nothing like a little shameless self-promotion.
Rick: Oh, like Boldface records isn't gonna make a buck off of this?
Phoebe: Maybe you two just shouldn't talk.
Constantine: Oh please. Your ex does not intimidate me.
Rick: Maybe I should.
Constantine: I'm sorry, what was that song you guys used to sing? "I'm want to spend my lifetime loving you" -- but you're not together anymore. Oops.
Phoebe: Hey, hey. Be nice. Okay? Just be nice. Be nice.
Rick: Phoebe, it's okay. Look, a little trash talk never hurt anyone. And it's fun. Besides, what I care about are votes. So what is the website again? Boldfacerecords.Com. Oh there it is. All right, let me cast my vote -- Rick and Phoebe. You know, all it takes is one single vote to win a contest.
Ridge: Get our wires crossed? I don't need you to babysit any more today.
Stephanie: No, you weren't at the office, so I just came up to see you.
Ridge: More problems in the cutting room?
Stephanie: This is not about work.
Ridge: Mother --
Stephanie: Honey, please. You're avoiding Ashley. You're hiding out up here. It's so obvious.
Ridge: What? I don't have a right to do that?
Stephanie: She should've told you about Rick.
Ridge: She let him talk her into being quiet about it. And that hurt Phoebe. That's the part that really bugs me.
Stephanie: I understand. She made a mistake. But haven't we all? I think she's an exceptional young woman.
Ridge: That doesn't change the facts, does it?
Stephanie: Honey, you've been happy. You haven't run back to Brooke the way you usually do, and that tells me something.
Ridge: Her behavior made a hell of a statement, though.
Stephanie: Ridge, she's had some rough times. She went through a bad divorce, she sowed a few wild oats. Who hasn't? Should she have been more upfront with you about Rick? Yes. But you're happy. Don't walk away from that just because of a misstep on her part. There are not a lot of wonderful young women like Ashley out there.
Ridge: You're just here to put your two cents worth in.
Stephanie: Yes, I am. Honey, please. I've seen you with a smile on your face -- recently. You're happy. That means the world to me. You haven't been happy, honey, for a long, long time. I don't know if things will work out with Ashley, but I think there might be a chance. Ridge, you've got to be really adult and sophisticated about this. You have to find a way to forgive this indiscretion. If you don't, I honestly think you'll spend the rest of your life wondering, maybe, what might have happened. You don't want to do that. You might have a real chance here. A chance with a wonderful woman to have a future. A good future.
Constantine: Vote for Phoebe and Constantine, "Everybody loves." Check out Boldfacerecords.Com. Log on. All right, check it out. It'll be hot.
Rick: How you doing? Hey, can I see that for just one second? Thank you. That's cute. You don't really need that. You need one of these. These are even better. Let me see.
Madison: So Rick cheated on you? Are you serious?
Phoebe: Well, I mean, technically, it wasn't cheating. We were broken up.
Madison: Yeah, for about five minutes. Well, how far did it go? Oh my God, Phoebe.
Phoebe: Well you know, it's over. So, whatever, you know?
Madison: Yeah, but still that's horrible.
Phoebe: I know, every time I think about it, I feel sick.
Madison: Well, who was it with? Some trashy girl I bet.
Phoebe: No. No, she's really not. I don't know, maybe if she was, it wouldn't hurt this much. You know?
Madison: And now he wants you back.
Phoebe: I keep telling him it's not gonna happen.
Rick: Hey guys, what's up? Let me see.
Madison: Guess he didn't get the message.
Rick: Perfect. And turn.
Phoebe: He won't stop!
Madison: You really want him to?
Phoebe: You were right.
Ridge: Right about what?
Phoebe: About Rick and the other woman. He -- they were -- they were having an affair.
Ridge: Oh, sweetie I'm so sorry.
Phoebe: I'm sorry I didn't listen to you. I'm sorry I didn't see what was right in front my face. How could I? If Rick and Ashley were so good at -- so good at hiding it --
Ridge: Ashley? Ashley? Ashley? Ashley Abbott? You're not telling me that, Ashley is the other woman in Rick's life.
Ashley: Second quarter sales figures.
Ridge: You could have messengered these.
Ashley: Yeah, I know. May I come in? Are the kids here?
Ridge: My mother took them out for ice cream.
Ashley: You weren't expecting to see me.
Ridge: No, actually I wasn't.
Ashley: When Molly said you weren't in the office, I read between the lines.
Ridge: I didn't really feel it was right to have all our issues all over the grapevine.
Ashley: I agree. Well, that's why I'm here.
Ridge: I have something for you.
Ashley: What is it?
Ridge: Severance package. Ready for your signature.
Ashley: You're firing me?
Ridge: Resignation would be acceptable.
Ashley: Well, it's not acceptable to me.
Ridge: Well, given the circumstances, it's probably going to be kind of hard to work together.
Ashley: You know, I was -- I was ready to quit. I was going to turn tail and run. Move to New York, where my sister Tracey lives. Or some place further, I don't know. Your mom talked me out of it. I'm glad she did. You know why? Because I've been -- I've never been the kind of person that runs away from her problems. Well, until this last year. I let my brother talk me into leaving Genoa City. Even though I knew he had an agenda, I didn't stay and fight. I took Abby and I left. To make a break or have a fresh start or I don't know. That's what I told myself. I was really just tired of struggling. To build or rebuild a life for myself in the city that I grew up in. After my dad died, nothing really made any sense to me. And it just became this huge battle of trying to play the game that jack wanted me to play. Never mind. Just suffice it to say, I took the easy way out. And I said my good-byes, I moved to Hong Kong -- and when that didn't feel like home, which I knew it wouldn't, I came to L.A.
Ridge: So you could be close to Rick again?
Ashley: He's one of the reasons why I came here. But you were the reason why I stayed. You are the reason. For the first time in so many years, I felt like I could look forward to the future again. I felt like -- like I was happy. My daughter's been happy here. It started to feel like home.
Ridge: You lied to me, Ashley.
Ashley: I didn't lie to you. Okay, a lie by omission, maybe. Maybe.
Ridge: No maybe about it.
Ashley: Ridge, I always wanted to tell you the truth. I was going to be honest with you. I let Rick influence my timing because he was trying to protect your daughter. Finally, I said we had to come forward and be totally honest. But by then, it was too late. Phoebe had figured things out. I had a momentary lapse in judgment!
Ridge: You certainly did that.
Ashley: And you know what? It seems to me you've had a couple of those yourself lately, haven't you?
Ridge: What do you want from me?
Ashley: I want you to be reasonable.
Ridge: Now, I'm not the one being reasonable?
Ashley: You're not being reasonable. Can't you see past my mistake? I mean, can't you get past your hurt feelings and get back to what we found in each other? I mean, maybe not in the next five minutes. But I can't help thinking that it's possible, if it's what we both want. I know it's what I want. Are you like me? I have high blood pressure...
Rick: If you pass these out -- excellent. Thank you.
Constantine: As if t-shirts weren't enough. Now you have human billboards?
Rick: You're just mad because you didn't think of it first.
Phoebe: Rick, could you just stop, please.
Rick: What? I'm just thinking of creative ways to get my point across.
Constantine: Dude, it's a little over the top.
Phoebe: Look, all I need from you is for you to be available for the concert on August 24th.
Rick: I know. And I'll be there. But in the meantime, I'm going to do everything in my power to win you back.
Phoebe: You can't.
Rick: I can. Because I know in my heart that we can get back what we had, Phoebe. And looking into your eyes, I know that you feel the same. Until then, my love -- the sky's the limit.
Constantine: Wait a second. Is that --
Constantine: Oh, my God. Forrester, you didn't.
Phoebe: Oh, my God. "Vote Rick and Phoebe Boldfacerecords.com."
Ridge: Maybe I could get past you and Rick. But I can't get past -- what it did to my daughter.
Ashley: I don't know what else to say to you. I am so sorry that the choices I made hurt Phoebe. Once I fell for you, Ridge, I knew that we couldn't build a relationship with this big secret between us. That's why I always planned on being honest with you. If I could do things differently, I would. But I really want you to know -- what I really need you to understand -- is the impact you've had on my life. I haven't felt this intensely for a man since victor. And that's why I'm not quitting my job and that's why I'm not leaving L.A. Because I can't help thinking that if you could just get past this, you can remember what was good about us. Maybe I'm wasting my time. But if there's even a chance -- please forgive me.
