Ridge: He shouldn't have come here. He shouldn't be here.
Stephanie: No, he shouldn't have come here. I told his mother to keep him away, and if they had any respect for you and Taylor and his brother-- it just-- he shouldn't have been here.
Ridge: Why, Logan? Why didn't you keep Rick away? It wasn't right for him to be at the funeral.
Owen: Donna, we're not gonna be able to pull it off. It's too much work. We're already two weeks behind on our deadline.
Donna: Are you sure you can do this?
Owen: What? Work with you on this surf line project? Yes.
Donna: Even though we're having these personal issues?
Owen: Donna, your relationship with Eric is your business. All right, to be quite frank, there isn't really much of a relationship, but you just don't want to accept that. But you know how I feel, and I don't want to talk about it anymore. Let's just figure out this and get to work.
(Knock on door)
Owen: Hey. Come in.
Woman: My appointment got rescheduled. I hope this isn't too late.
Owen: No. No, not at all. You know what, Donna? I've got a great idea.
Owen: I think we should use Grace as a fit model.
Donna: Oh, for-- for the surf line?
Owen: Yeah, I mean, she's got the right figure. She--she looks very much like you.
Donna: Okay, sure. Yeah.
Owen: Awesome. Great, then it's settled.
Donna: Oh, well, I mean, we first have to run it by Eric and--and Thorne. I mean, they may have somebody else in mind.
Grace: I can do this. Really, I can. I promise I won't let you down.
Owen: I'm sure you won't, Grace.
Donna: Owen, um, what's going on here? I--
Thorne: Hey, guys, about this fabric re--
Stephanie: Are you all right? I mean, I just don't think it was necessarily a good idea to come down.
Eric: No, you know, I just needed a distraction, I guess. What an ordeal.
Stephanie: I know. I'm just heartbroken for Taylor and Ridge.
Eric: (Sighs) They're gonna need our support.
Stephanie: It's a good thing we're back together, especially at a time like this.
Eric: The family needs a good foundation. All of them, including Rick.
Stephanie: I don't think it was a good idea for him to show up at that funeral, and I asked Brooke to keep him away.
Eric: Rick needs closure, just like everyone else.
Stephanie: Well, if he needs closure, Eric, then he should take responsibility for what he did. He should turn himself in to the police.
Ridge: Rick should have stayed away.
Brooke: He desperately needed to pay his respects, Ridge. He's in mourning. We all are.
Ridge: Oh, is he seriously grieving? Or is he just putting on an act?
Brooke: (Sighs) That's Stephanie talking, not you.
Ridge: No, Brooke, that's me talking.
Brooke: You saw him, Ridge. How could you believe he's not in mourning?
Ridge: I believe he's feeling guilty. And he should be, after everything he's done. Logan, I know he's your son, and I feel for you. But don't ask me to feel for Rick, because I don't. I can't.
Owen: So you were saying something about the fabric orders?
Thorne: Yeah. Your quantities are off.
Owen: All right, let me take a look at this.
Donna: Oh, um, I'm sorry, Thorne. This is, um, Grace. I'm sure you guys haven't met yet.
Grace: We've met.
Donna: Oh. She looks a-a lot like me, doesn't she?
Thorne: A little, maybe.
Donna: Well, we were thinking about using her as a model for our surf line.
Donna: Oh, do you-- do you have a problem with that, or--
Thorne: Why would I have a problem with that?
Donna: Oh, I don't know. It just seems like something is bothering you.
Thorne: I'd like to talk to her. Would you guys give us some privacy, please?
Owen: Yeah. Oh, absolutely.
Owen: Let's go, Donna. Let's go wrap up this order real quick. Come on. Chop-chop.
Donna: Okay. I'm coming.
Thorne: I paid you very well to do a job, and that job is over. You're finished here, Grace.
Eric: I can't believe that you would want to bring the police into this thing.
Stephanie: Well, our granddaughter's dead. I mean, they're going to look into it anyway. That's normal procedure. Wait a minute, do you-- are you-- are you trying to rescue him from his responsibility?
Eric: I'm not trying to rescue Rick. There's nothing to rescue Rick from. Look, I don't want to talk about this.
Stephanie: No, of course you don't. Look--look, why don't we just go home? We're not gonna get any work done here.
Eric: No, I don't want to go home. I'll stay here. I'll do some work or something.
Stephanie: Okay, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to upset you. That wasn't my intention. It's fine. I love you. I'll see you later.
Brooke: I want to get through this with you. What can I do? How can I help you?
Ridge: I don't know, Logan. I, uh, buried my daughter today. It's kind of soon to talk about getting through it.
Brooke: (Sighs) Ridge, what do you want from me? I'm suffering right along with you.
Ridge: Well, I'm sorry. I'm just not thinking about much other than Phoebe right now.
Brooke: I understand.
(Cell phone rings)
Ridge: Yes, Mother?
Stephanie: Hi, honey. Um, I'm on my way home. And, um, how are you doing?
Ridge: Not great.
Stephanie: Why don't you come over to the house and we'll talk?
Ridge: I'll meet you at the house after I get through here.
Brooke: Your mother wants to see you? I'm coming along.
Ridge: She'd like to see me in private, Brooke.
Brooke: Do you know why? Because I do. I saw the hatred in her eyes. She wants my son gone. She wants Rick behind bars.
Eric: How could you do that, Donna? How--how could you betray me like that?
Thorne: I want you to walk out of this building, get into your car and go home. You are not to come back here again. Do you understand?
Grace: Owen offered me a job. It is a very good opportunity.
Thorne: Owen doesn't have the authority to offer you a job. You will never work for Forrester Creations, Grace. And if you would like, I can make it to where you never work in this town again.
Grace: Why are you acting like this? I did you a favor.
Thorne: No, you didn't. You did a job, which you were very well compensated for.
Grace: That was not a modeling job, Thorne. That was something altogether different.
Thorne: What's your point?
Grace: I just have to wonder. You asked me not to mention it to anyone, and I didn't. I-I don't know why you hired me to do what I did, but it was obviously important to you, so...
Thorne: Good-bye, Grace.
Grace: That woman. Donna. I look a lot like her. This has something to do with her, doesn't it?
(Knock on door)
Donna: How was the memorial?
Eric: It was heartbreaking.
Donna: Oh, Eric, I'm so sorry.
Eric: Thank you.
Donna: I-I love you so much. And I wish I could be by-- by your side through all this.
Stephanie: (Sighs) I'm sorry, Eric, I don't want any upset or trouble between us, especially at a time like this, but Phoebe's dead, and Rick is responsible, and I just don't think it's right that he gets away with this.
Brooke: Don't go over there, Ridge, please. You really don't need to hear another one of Stephanie's tirades.
Ridge: Brooke, she's devastated like everyone else. She loved Phoebe, too.
Brooke: Yes, but she hates my son.
Ridge: It's kind of understandable, isn't it?
Brooke: No. No, it isn't understandable. Rick doesn't deserve to be hated by Stephanie or by anybody. He hates himself enough for what's happened. Ridge, he's gonna suffer for the rest of his life because of what happened on that windy road. Punishing Rick is not going to bring Phoebe back.
Brooke: Please, if you care about me, the woman who is loyal to you and to her children, then you will not-- I am begging you-- you will not give in to your mother.
Ridge: We'll deal with Rick. You and me. I'm very angry at your son, Brooke. But I'm not gonna let Mother put him behind bars...
Ridge: Because I love you.
Brooke: Thank you. Thank you. (Sniffles) I love you, too. (Sighs) I love you so much.
Donna: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I guess I shouldn't have said that.
Eric: Maybe you shouldn't have.
Donna: Look, I just-- I don't want you to think that... when you're suffering like this that you're not on my mind, in my heart.
Eric: That's-- that's very kind of you to say.
Donna: But you don't believe me, though, do you?
Eric: I believe that you care about me, but you have another life now.
Donna: Another life? Yeah. Yeah, I guess you could say that. A life without you. A life without love. Yeah, maybe someday I'll feel something for someone, but it won't be the same.
Eric: You don't know that.
Donna: Yeah, I do. I know that. (Sighs) you'll be the one I judge all others by, and nobody will compare. That I know. What is it? Something else is going on. Just tell me. Tell me. Please, Eric, I have poured my heart out to you, and-- my God, why are you looking at me like this? Like I-I've done something to hurt you?
Grace: What you had me do, pretending to make love to that man, it had something to do with Donna and Eric Forrester, didn't it?
Thorne: I'll tell you what. I'll see what I can do about getting you a position at Forrester International.
Grace: Why? So you can get me out of the country?
(Cell phone beeps)
Thorne: I gotta go. Forrester International. It could be exciting. You think about it, Grace. But you call me. Don't ever come back here again.
Owen: All right, Grace. I want you to level with me right now. What is really going on between you and Thorne?
Ridge: You wanted to see me, Mother?
Stephanie: Yes, honey.
Ridge: Is this about Rick?
Stephanie: Oh, so you've, uh, been with Brooke?
Ridge: Yes, I have been with her.
Stephanie: Well, I honestly don't think she can be objective about this.
Ridge: And you can?
Stephanie: No, all right. I don't suppose any of us can. But there are certain indisputable facts here.
Ridge: No one's more aware of that than I am.
Stephanie: Honey, if this conversation could wait for a month or two, it would, but it can't. Phoebe is gone, and justice is due.
Ridge: Well, that's not gonna bring her back, though, is it?
Stephanie: No. No. Nothing is going-- nothing's gonna bring her back. But I don't think he should be allowed to get off scot-free. It's only going to make you, make all of us suffer even more.
Ridge: Nothing is gonna make me suffer more than I already am, Mother.
Stephanie: Well, there's a lot of anger going on here, too.
Ridge: You're gonna capitalize on that?
Stephanie: No. If you can let this go, what he's done, then I can let it go, too. Can you?
Ridge: I'll handle Rick. No charges are gonna be filed.
Stephanie: And how are you gonna handle him?
Ridge: That's my business, not yours.
Stephanie: No, it becomes the family business if you do something rash. Look, honey, this is supposed to be not about vengeance and not about anger. It has to be about due process. So let's take him to court, and let's let them settle it and see if he should be punished or not.
Ridge: And if the courts let him go? Then what?
Stephanie: Well, personally, I don't think there's a court in the state that's gonna let him off, and I think you believe that, too. I think we have to let the authorities pursue this. Otherwise-- otherwise he doesn't suffer any consequences for your daughter's death. I think we have to do this for phoebe's sake and for yours and Taylor's.
Stephanie: If you don't do think I don't know how you'll live with yourself for the rest of your life.
