Ridge: Surf line's big debut.
Brooke: Ours, too.
Ridge: Fashion show and a wedding in one day. Doesn't get any better than that.
Eric: Look. The showstopper's gonna be a huge hit, you'll see.
Donna: Are you sure?
Eric: Yes. The crocheted bikini is the most unique item in the whole collection. Sorry, darling.
Donna: Um, listen. I just-- there's something you need to know about the bikini.
Katie: Get it done. Hey, donna, are you almost ready to go? We're about 20 minutes out. Marcus is setting up the cameras. As soon as we have a feed, we'll be broadcasting live to all the boutiques and offices around the world.
Eric: There you go.
Eric: Donna? What are you, nervous? You can't possibly be nervous.
Donna: Oh, no?
Eric: Well, you've done this before.
Donna: Yeah, but not while wearing a ball of string. I mean, what if I'm up there and the thing falls apart onstage?
Eric: It would be a terrific showstopper-- wonderful.
Steffy: Here you go. It's all about the promotional tie-in with the surf line premier and make every serving count. Yeah, I just love being a part of it.
Jarrett: Here he is. Forrester's handsome young firebrand carving up the stuffy world of haute couture with his edgy new surf line.
Rick: Hello, Jarrett.
Jarrett: So, um, surfers and eating your veggies. Explain the connection?
Rick: Well, we can talk to Steffy. She can give you some promotional material.
Jarrett: Yeah, I've read it.
Jarrett: The campaign will provide more than 30 million servings of fresh fruit and vegetables...
Jarrett: For America's needy. Yeah, it's a worthy cause.
Jarrett: So how is Forrester involved?
Rick: Okay, well, a portion of today's proceeds will benefit v8's feeding America's national produce program, and, you know, with the tie-in for eating healthy and an active lifestyle, it ties in perfectly with the premier of Forrester's surf line, so, um--I'm sorry. Can we finish this later? Thanks.
Jarrett: Oh, sure.
Thorne: Hey, do you have the revised music order?
Felicia: You're so lucky. It's right here.
Thorne: Great. Let me get that to the booth.
Jarrett: Oh, excuse me, Mrs. Forrester?
Donna: I believe he was addressing me.
Stephanie: Were you?
Eric: You should be addressing me. I mean, this is my big comeback, after all.
Jarrett: Indeed. So, the surf line-- a big leap from ball gowns. You don't approve?
Stephanie: Oh, it's just not my style really, that's all.
Jarrett: So how do you think the collection will be received?
Stephanie: Brilliantly. He's a brilliant designer. He could make ball gowns out of garbage bags.
Jarrett: So, surf wear-- a radical move. Your first showing since your illness.
Eric: Well, what can I say? I'm-- I'm invigorated.
Jarrett: Does that go for your personal life as well?
Jarrett: Out with the old, in with the new.
Donna: You know what? We should really get started.
Eric: Yes. Time to rally the troops.
Stephanie: I suggest you go down front. I don't think you want to lose your place by the stage.
Jarrett: Going, going.
Jackie: Oh, you came.
Katie: You look beautiful.
Jackie: Thank you so much. So do you.
Katie: Did you see?
Jackie: Oh, my word. I don't think it's big enough.
Katie: Oh, I don't know. I think it's big. I think it's okay.
Jackie: I'm gonna have to just tell everybody. I'm so happy for you!
Katie: Oh, thank you.
Eric: Everyone, everyone, a word, please, for just a moment. Please. Oh, my goodness, I can not tell you how much I've missed this. You all look wonderful. I'd like to say it's like old times, but we've never done anything like this before, have we? Forrester Creations is breaking new ground here today. We're taking a risk. That's the rush. I want our audience to feel that. Now swimwear is fun and it's sexy and it's rebellious, and that's what I want you to be out on the runway today. We're encouraging our clientele to get out of the office and get outside and get active, and so get out there and raise hell. Go on, go on, have a great time. Have a great time. Stephanie, wait. Wait, wait, wait. Listen. What Jarrett said earlier, um--
Stephanie: Honey, I'm sure that's tame compared to what they're saying outside.
Eric: Yeah, well, you're not-- you're not being discarded, you know? It's very important to me that you're here.
Stephanie: Sweetheart, you know something? Once you start making pep talks, you never stop.
Eric: I'll understand if you want to leave, you know, if you want to go.
Stephanie: What, and Miss Donna's bikini line?
Eric: Good, so you'll stay. I'm glad you're here. Thank you. It means everything to me.
Stephanie: Eric, you're alive, you're breathing and you're doing what you love to do. And that's all that I've ever wanted for you. Good luck.
Eric: Thank you.
Ridge: It's my great pleasure to introduce the founder of Forrester Creations-- Eric Forrester.
Jarrett: Welcome back, Eric!
Eric: Thank you. Thank you so much. It's wonderful to be back. I appreciate that welcome, and, uh, among my family and so many wonderful friends, thank you all for being here at another amazing moment in Forrester history-- the launch of a new line, a new venture that invokes the energy and youthfulness that we've all been feeling at the company lately. To help me do that very thing, I want to introduce you to the new president of Forrester Creations, who actually embodies that youth and energy that I've been talking about-- my son Eric Forrester Jr.
Rick: I have to kiss you one last time.
Steffy: One last time. (Cheers and applause)
Rick: This is an incredible moment for Forrester Creations. Forrester Creations has a new president, a new C.E.O., And a new collection. But our vision has not changed. Quality, innovation and integrity. For decades, Forrester Creations has brought California glamour to runways and red carpets all around the world, and today Forrester creations is proud to bring its style to the beach.
Eric: We invite you to enjoy the show, have a good time, and let's go to the beach. Here we go.
Donna: They're clapping.
Rick: Yeah, but lightly.
Eric: We haven't wowed them yet, but we will.
Donna: You gotta do something.
Katie: What? The show just started. There's no reason to panic.
Donna: Really? Then why does Eric look like that?
Katie: He looks fine.
Donna: Katie, he's faking. He doesn't-- he doesn't want to upset Rick, okay? This is supposed to be good for him, and it's just-- it's not good. This is not good.
Steffy: Hey, Granddad.
Steffy: Is everything okay?
Eric: Uh, the buyers aren't sure what to think. This is a major departure for us, you know?
Steffy: That doesn't make it a bad idea.
Eric: No, but sometimes new ideas are hard to accept.
Steffy: Yeah, tell me about it.
Donna: I'm not doing this.
Owen: Wait, wait, what are you talking about?
Donna: I cannot go down the runway with crazy Pam's crocheted bikini. Eric would be the laughing stock.
Stephanie: Eric's worried. He doesn't want anybody to know, but I can see. It's all over his face.
Taylor: Then why are you sitting here?
Stephanie: I'm not his wife anymore.
Taylor: Eric will always need you.
Rick: Oh! Sorry.
Steffy: Hi. Um... (clears throat) nice--nice speech.
Rick: Thank you. Um, I really hope it's not the high point of the day.
Steffy: Well, at least we have your mom and my dad's wedding to look forward to. Okay, I'm sorry. Sorry, it's stupid.
Rick: No, no, no. I--um, it's fine. Is it really going that well out there right now?
Steffy: Um, well, things could turn around. I'm sorry. I'm just-- I'm trying to be supportive. It's just not going that--
Rick: It's okay, you can stop.
Steffy: Really, what can I do to make you feel better?
Brooke: I can't leave without talking to Rick.
Ridge: And say what?
Brooke: He really needed this line to be a hit.
Ridge: Well, obviously, it wasn't. Look. A big "I'm sorry" from Mom is not gonna make it any less disappointing. He's a big boy. He'll get over it. Besides, he's got Dad, Donna and Katie. I hear she's pretty good at P.R.
Brooke: Yes, she's the best.
Ridge: Well, then what are we doing here? This is one showing. Rick's gonna have more showings. But we are gonna have one more wedding, and that's it, okay? And I for one can't wait one more minute, so why don't we just go get married now?
Brooke: Okay, okay.
Ridge: Come on.
Brooke: Yes, let's go get married!
Owen: Come on, what are you doing?
Donna: Look. What about this? This is unique, sort of.
Owen: Look, Donna, listen to me. You are freaking out, all right? Chill.
Donna: Pam's bikini is not the showstopper. It's a show killer, okay? I'm not wearing it.
Owen: (Exhales deeply)
Stephanie: Not every show can be a blockbuster, right?
Eric: Yeah, well, you know, I know. We were hoping for more.
Stephanie: Next collection, your collections.
Eric: Well, I'm not throwing in the towel yet. I just--
Owen: Mr. Forr--Eric, we got a problem.
Eric: Yes, what is it? What-- what are you doing with that?
Owen: Donna gave it to me. She's refusing to wear it. She--
Eric: No, that's the showstopper. Tell her to put it back on.
Owen: Okay, all right, I will.
Thorne: Dad, it's time. I need Donna.
Eric: No, she's not ready. We're gonna have to stall. All right, we're gonna have to stall.
Stephanie: Didn't you just say a few moments ago that you missed all of this? What did you say to the models? "That's the rush."
Eric: Get away from me. Get away from me.
Stephanie: It'll be fine.
Owen: Look, Donna. Eric wants you to put this on.
Donna: He doesn't know that Pam made it.
Owen: Look. It doesn't matter. Your husband needs you out there now.
Bridget: What's going on? Where's the showstopper?
Eric: So-- so what is this? What's--what's going on? What is this all about? We've got bathing suits and board shorts. Forrester's surf line. What makes that different than anyone else's? What, just the label? Yeah, I wish. It would make my job a lot easier, wouldn't it?
Rick: What the hell is he doing?
Thorne: He's working the crowd like only Dad can.
Eric: A Forrester Original is defined by it's attention to detail. Unusual fabrics, and the precision of every stitch.
Taylor: Is everything okay?
Stephanie: Nothing Eric can't handle. (Runway music plays)
Eric: Ladies and gentlemen, believe me when I tell you that our final number here is a real showstopper. It comes from the creative mind of my wife Donna Forrester, and I think you're gonna love this. Take a look.
Pam: That is not Donna's creation. It's mine!
Rick: They like it.
Eric: They love it. Look at that.
Eric: Well, congratulations, Mr. President. You've just started your first trend. Way to go.
Rick: Thanks, Dad.
Pam: You told Eric this was your idea? I made that bikini, Donna. That is my design!
Brooke: Here we are. Our wedding day. (Brooke giggles)
