Brooke: We could be a family again, starting right now this very minute. Just say the words. Make it happen.
Ridge: And those words are what? "So long, Ashley"?
Brooke: I-I'm sure that she will--will have some disentangling to do.
Ridge: Logan, Ashley believes that she and I have a future, too-- if I'm open and honest with her, that is.
Brooke: Well, that's fine. I don't have a problem with you being open and honest about your feelings for me.
Ridge: Logan, you know I love you. I always will.
Brooke: Things are different for us now, Ridge. We finally have a chance to have what we want, to have what we've always dreamed about.
Ridge: Okay, I'll bite here. What's--what's different about all this now? Why would this work now as opposed to before?
Brooke: Because for the first time ever we don't have to deal with your mother.
Rick: Knock, knock.
Rick: Hi. Um, could you take a look at these for me?
Ashley: Wait a second. I need your nose first.
Rick: My nose?
Ashley: Take a whiff.
Rick: Oh. Oh, wow.
Ashley: You like it?
Rick: I like. You know, that's--that's-- that's different than "Phoebe."
Ashley: Yeah. Well, "Phoebe" was more daytime, and this is "Felicia."
Ashley: It's, um, avant-garde, a little spicier, more in your face.
Rick: That is Felicia, yes.
Ashley: Yeah. How's the packaging going?
Rick: Uh, well, I've been-- um, spent two sleepless nights trying to design--
Ashley: Oh, wow.
Rick: Well, you just take a look. I don't know.
Ashley: Wow, strong, vertical lines. I like it a lot.
Rick: You do?
Rick: Thank you. You know, I still-- I think there's something missing, though. That's the problem.
Ashley: Did you think about-- well, what if it--it comes with a carrying case?
Rick: You mean, for the-- for the bottle itself?
Ashley: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
Ashley: When I think of "Felicia"-- I don't know. Call me crazy--- I think of leather, maybe.
Rick: Black leather.
Rick: You know what? I think that's it.
Ashley: It's good. I love it.
Rick: I think you're right. You know, it'll be, um-- it'll be elegant, but--but sexy...
Rick: Totally sophisticated, kind of like someone else I know.
Ashley: Well, I'm so happy I could be of help.
Rick: Well, that's the thing. You always know what I need.
Eric: And that's-- that's kind of it, you know? Now it brings us back to the pool, and here we are.
Eric: You've seen this place before.
Donna: No. No, never all of it. Eric, this place is-- it's mind-blowing. The theater, the billiard room...
Eric: Mm-hmm. The wine cellar...
Donna: And--and the neat, little game room you built...
Eric: Yeah. It's a wonderful house. You're right. It really is. I-I just--I don't remember the last time I was able to take advantage of it.
Donna: The person who put this place together definitely wanted to enjoy life.
Eric: Are you calling me a hedonist?
Donna: If the hot tub fits.
Eric: Well, it used to. I used to have a lot more fun than I do now. It's true. I don't know when my life became so joyless.
Donna: You know what you sound like? A failure, or at least a man who feels like one. But what I see...
Eric: What do you see? What do you see when you look at me?
Donna: An amazing, sexy, dynamic man. You're funny, talented. My God, you've built a whole fashion empire, Eric... decades of outrageously beautiful clothes, things that you designed. You have so much to be proud of, so much to celebrate, but yet, here I find you in the middle of the day playing dirges on the piano. And you can't tell me because it's you miss your wife so much.
Eric: So what's you diagnosis, doctor?
Donna: Acute boredom, one of the worst cases I've ever seen.
Eric: My God. Is there a cure?
Donna: In your case, yes, but only if you do exactly what the doctor tells you to do. Game?
Brooke: If Stephanie hadn't been so rabid in her hatred of me all those years...
Ridge: I do not want to talk about my mother anymore.
Brooke: Yeah, you're right. Let's not talk about her. Let's just focus on us and our future and the contentment and happiness that we could have, that we will have if you look deep into your heart and you realize that you're not gonna have a future with Ashley. Ridge, this could be a new beginning for us, for you and me, hope, R.J. that's what they want. The future is ours. Just give yourself back over to us, and I promise you, you won't look at Ashley or any other woman ever again.
Rick: You know, Ashley, this new fragrance of yours is pretty amazing. I really think it could outsell "Phoebe."
Ashley: Oh, yeah? You think?
Rick: Mm-hmm. I do. You see, "sweet 'n' innocent"-- so last year. Now adult and provocative-- that's--that's what's in.
Ashley: Are we talking about your love life or our fragrance line?
Rick: Oh. Well, maybe I'm talking about you.
Ashley: Oh, would you please knock it off?
Rick: Well, no, no. Listen to me for a second. If I was creating a fragrance called "Ashley," for example, it would be, um, sensual...
Rick: Incredibly feminine.
Ashley: Well, I hate to break it to you, but I've already got an entire cosmetic line named after myself, including the fragrance. Yes, that was called "Ashley Abbott." I'm talking about "Ashley Forrester."
Ashley: As in Ridge's wife? Oh, I get it. Well, I'm-- I don't think that we're heading that way anytime soon.
Ashley: Yes, really. And I don't care to really discuss it with you.
Rick: Well, I do, because I could really use some good news right now.
Eric: So what does the doctor recommend?
Donna: Well, first things first, exercise. Why don't you jump in the pool and swim some laps, get those endorphins pumping?
Eric: Swim? I don't know the last time I was in this pool, except with one of my grandkids.
Donna: Ah, it's toasty. Go ahead. Come on.
Eric: No, you go on. You enjoy it.
Donna: Mm, I didn't bring my suit.
Eric: Don't let that stop you.
Eric: All right, here we go. Right this way.
Eric: I can remember a long, lazy afternoon many, many moons ago when Stephanie was right there just like that, same position and everything and actually wearing the same suit you are.
Donna: Are you telling me that Stephanie Forrester skinny-dipped? She actually participated in that kind of depravity?
Eric: She wasn't always the woman she is today.
Donna: So that's why you excuse her behavior, because you're still in love with that woman that you married?
Eric: Excused--past tense.
Eric: After what she did to Brooke, there's no excusing her behavior anymore. The woman she's become, I just-- I don't even know her anymore.
Donna: I bet you were different, too.
Eric: Everybody was different.
Donna: Um, some people never change. You-- I can imagine a man who was full of life, who knew better than anyone how to have a good time. I would have liked to have known that man.
Eric: I'm not sure I even remember that guy.
Donna: Oh, he's in there. You just gotta let him out.
Rick: So Bridget tells me that Ridge has been spending loads of time with our mother. That should thrill you to no end, especially when they're too busy up at big bear for Ridge to take you to his own brother's wedding. How did that feel, showing up to a Forrester family event without him? Did he ever give you any kind of explanation beyond the need to hold my mother's hand?
Ashley: No, he didn't, okay? He didn't, and I'm not happy about it. I mean, you know how I feel about keeping secrets.
Rick: Yes, I do-- better than just about anybody. Look, Ashley. I know you don't want to hear this, okay? But Brooke and Ridge-- my mother and Ridge-- package deal. Whenever my mom needs Ridge, he comes running. If you can handle that, Ashley, then look, more power to you. But here's the deal. They're members of a very exclusive 2-member club, so don't expect them to teach you the password or the secret handshake or anything.
Ashley: Would you please just shut up? Please, stop.
Rick: I'm sorry. Look, really, I'm sorry, Ashley. I'm just trying to tell you you deserve so much better.
Ashley: Well, there's someplace I need to be. (Door closes)
Brooke: Your mother is out of the picture now. We have a chance to raise our son with both of his parents in a very stable home. It's what we've always wanted, Ridge. It's what we've always longed for.
Brooke: Just think about it, okay? Think about how much I love you, 'cause you do know that, don't you? You do know that I love you very, very much.
Ridge: So what do you think?
Ashley: About calling in sick? I'd love to, but we have that big show coming up, and...
Ridge: Ohh... reality rears its ugly head.
Ashley: Yeah, but--but-- but in our particular office building...
Ashley: We have this great thing. It's, um-- it's a private sauna.
Ridge: She remembers.
Ashley: Yeah, how could I forget?
Ridge: Okay, the sauna it is, later.
Ashley: Yeah, it's a date.
Ashley: That's nice.
Donna: So... (Sighs) What happened to that Eric Forrester? Where did he go?
Eric: I think sometimes when you realize you're with the wrong person but--but you-- you decide to stay, that you sort of, uh, come up with all kinds of reasons, dozens of them, to--to excuse staying with that person. In the process, you sort of, uh-- you lop off parts of yourself, even who you are inside.
Donna: It sounds painful.
Eric: I think it can be, depends on how determined you are to stay.
Eric: You just sort of start to detach yourself and numb yourself. And my drug of choice was work.
Donna: Well, there are worse ways.
Eric: Boy, there really are, aren't there?
Donna: Mm. Oh, I'm turning into a prune in here!
Donna: (Laughs) You didn't even look. You know, maybe if you did, it would jog your memory a little bit... or jog something else.
Eric: Trust me, I'm not that old. I saw you.
Ashley: Mm. I was so hoping you'd be here.
Rick: I live to serve.
Rick: Hi. What? Who'd you think was giving you all that pleasure?
Ashley: I was supposed to meet ridge here. Why didn't you tell me it was you?
Rick: Well, you were enjoying yourself so much, I really didn't want to break the mood? What?
Ashley: You know what. You had no business touching me like that.
Rick: Oh, Ashley, come on. It was just a very innocent neck rub between two very good friends.
Joel: Shall I set up in the usual spot?
Ridge: Oh, what does that say about me that you would even ask that question?
Joel: It says that Ridge Forrester is a man of discerning tastes, who knows how to strike awe in the woman he loves.
Ridge: Yeah, this week. That is probably what you think every time your phone rings and it's me now, right?
Joel: I think, now there's a man whom romance is smiling upon. How lucky for him.
Ridge: Oh, Joel. You are one slick son of a gun.
Joel: I learned from the master. Now I brought this particular ring, as it would be exquisite with those diamond earrings you bought from me a couple months back.
Ridge: Hmm. Hmm. What do you call this cut right here?
Joel: A radiant cut. 70 facets instead of the usual 58.
Ridge: I don't think you've ever shown me a ring like this before.
Joel: Well, I probably never had one that would pass the Ridge Forrester test.
Ridge: Oh, the diamonds always do. The marriages...
Joel: Are you suggesting that my rings are jinxed?
Ridge: No, absolutely not. Neither is my choice of fiancée. This one's forever. It's the last engagement ring I'll ever purchase from you.
Joel: I'm delighted to hear it.
Ridge: Even though it might mean losing a customer?
Joel: Not for necklaces, bracelets, diamond wristwatches.
Ridge: Oh, you know me too well. This one is perfect. I'll take it.
Joel: (Snaps box shut) Done. I'll send you an appraisal along with the bill.
Ridge: Joel, thank you very much for coming.
Joel: Well, I would say "My pleasure," but then you already know that. I'll show myself out.
Ridge: Thank you, sir.
Ridge: Hey. It's me. Why don't you come over tonight for dinner around 8:00? Have a little conversation... how's that sound?
Brooke: It sounds fabulous.
Ridge: Good. I'll look forward to it.
Brooke: Me, too.
Ridge: And, Brooke, I want you to know that I love you more than you could ever know.
Brooke: I love you, too, Ridge, with all my heart.
Ridge: Tonight, the rest of my life begins with you.
