Ridge: Okey-dokey. Shower's all yours.
Ridge: Hey, I thought we agreed this was our last wedding.
Brooke: It is. I'm helping Katie do hers.
Ridge: Women and weddings.
Brooke: I told her if she wanted the perfect wedding, she should have you do it.
Ridge: Oh, good. Yeah, sure, I'll be glad to.
Ridge: I don't have enough to do at the office. I don't think we-- any of us do.
Ridge: Wait until you see this. (Sighs) apparently Jarrett caught up with mother after the showing.
Brooke: "An exclusive interview with Forrester's former matriarch. Stephanie Forrester gets frank about fashion and family." She talked to Jarrett about the accident?
Ridge: Yes, she did.
Brooke: Oh, my God. She blames Rick publicly. "Parents make excuses for their children. Rick was responsible for Phoebe's death, and he should be held accountable." (Scoffs)
Ridge: It's a P.R. Nightmare, Logan.
Brooke: No, this is despicable.
Felicia: "Rick should be held accountable"? Mother! Come on, "Rick should be held accountable"? That makes it sound like you feel like he got away with murder.
Stephanie: That's exactly how I feel.
Thorne: Some feelings should be kept to themselves.
Felicia: Did you think this conversation was off the record?
Thorne: Mother, we're trying to promote a new line.
Stephanie: I don't give a damn about the line.
Thorne: Do you give a damn about the company? Have you taken a look at our balance sheet?
Felicia: Holiday season is usually very good for us. This year? Not so much.
Stephanie: The year of the Logans. You think it's a coincidence? Our name is on the building, and the Logans are running the company. What does that say?
Donna: (Giggles) (knock on door)
Eric: (Groans) come in.
Katie: Hi. Sorry to interrupt.
Katie: I just wanted to let you know that the crochet bikini gave the entire line a bounce. All the buyers are buzzing about it.
Eric: Good. Well, schedule more interviews. We--we can push the, uh, the handmade aspect of this whole thing.
Katie: Uh, first you need to look at this. I marked the page and highlighted a few things.
Donna: What's this? It's slander!
Eric: What is she doing? What the hell is she doing? Our family is still in mourning, and she goes to the press with this? What-- all right, she's gone too far. She's gone-- she's gone too far.
Bridget: Bad timing?
Rick: Um, I just-- I have a lot on my mind.
Bridget: Huh. Steffy?
Rick: (Chuckles) What?
Bridget: I was here last night, and I saw you two. You and Steffy were kissing.
Rick: (Sighs) Oh, man.
Bridget: Rick, after everything that's happened, you haven't given up? You're still trying to hurt Ridge? I mean, what are you--
Rick: No, no, no, no. That's not it at all, I pro--
Bridget: Okay, then what were you thinking? That door was open. Anyone could have walked in, including Ridge.
Marcus: Slow down, girl, okay? Now keep your eyes closed. Do not open them. Don't peek.
Marcus: All right. Keep 'em closed. Keep 'em closed.
Steffy: Okay. Okay.
Marcus: Okay, not yet. Wait, wait, wait. Damn, it's cold. All right, open 'em. Surprise!
Steffy: You didn't have to do all this.
Marcus: No, but you're glad I did, right?
Marcus: Yeah? Damn, I was going to open the champagne and say "Surprise" at the same time. (Chuckles) hold on. I'll get you a glass, okay? It's non-alcoholic, of course. (Blows on hands)
Rick: It's not going to happen again, Bridget.
Bridget: Because it shouldn't have happened in the first place.
Rick: I know that.
Bridget: What were you thinking? Really, I mean, Phoebe is dead, and you're kissing her sister.
Bridget: That's what put this tragedy in motion. If Ridge saw you two--
Rick: Ridge didn't see us, and he's not gonna see us ever because we ended it.
Bridget: "We"? This is absolutely unbelievable. Are you telling me it's mutual?
Rick: Look, I don't know how to explain it, Bridget, all right? It--we didn't expect it. We didn't expect to have these feelings.
Bridget: Oh. (Scoffs)
Rick: Listen to me. I'm not gonna lie to you. I feel something for her. I don't know what it is, but I do, and I know that she feels the same about me.
Bridget: Ridge is never going to accept this.
Rick: I know that. Listen, we know that it's impossible. It can't happen. We get all that, all right?
Bridget: Look, I'm not gonna say anything, but you two really need to be careful. You should keep your distance from Steffy.
Rick: Well, we're doing that this weekend. Steffy's up in Big Bear on a romantic getaway with Marcus.
Bridget: Don't say it like that. He's her boyfriend. And don't be jealous.
Rick: I'm not jealous.
Bridget: Whatever happened between you two, it's over. Do I need to remind you that things with you and Ridge and Stephanie--they're bad. And this will only make things worse for you and for her, so just don't do it. (Sighs)
Marcus: Somebody call?
Steffy: No, um, I was just-- I just thought I heard it ring.
Marcus: (Sighs) Baby, look, we came up here--unh-unh-- to be away from everybody and everything, all right? Just the two of us.
Steffy: Yeah, but if-- if my parents called and they wanted to leave a message, h-how am I supposed to get--
Marcus: Yes, you left them a message, okay? So if they call and get your voicemail, they'll just figure that you're on the slopes or somethin'.
Steffy: You know what? Actually, that's-- that's a really good idea. Why don't we go snowboarding? That'd be great.
Marcus: No, no, no. Well, no, no, no, no. Later for all that. Right now, I just want to be with you alone, keeping you warm, making sure you feel safe and knowing that there's nothing on this earth that can touch us as long as we're together.
Felicia: The Logans are a problem. They've got the run of the company. Makes me want to puke. But I don't go off ranting to Jarrett about it.
Thorne: And besides, Dad's done this before, Mother. You know, Dad with Brooke. Dad with Lauren. Now Dad with Donna.
Stephanie: You know, this isn't just another distraction for your father. He's given these girls control of the company. I mean, Donna coming up with a surf line? Forrester Creations label has a surf line? The one thing that I could always count on your father was that he was always building a legacy for his family... until now.
Thorne: He still cares about us.
Felicia: He just doesn't listen to us.
Stephanie: This is a travesty, I will.
Eric: Rick is my son. She knows how I feel about this.
Donna: And now everyone knows how she feels.
Eric: You know, criticizing the collection is one thing, but coming down on Rick, blaming him for phoebe's death, that's something else.
Katie: Well, we need a response.
Eric: Well, I'm not gonna have this argument in the press.
Katie: No comment is not gonna make the conversation go away.
Eric: This is a private family matter.
Katie: Not anymore. It's news.
Eric: What is she trying to do?
Donna: This, Eric. This. She wants us scrambling and on the defensive. I mean, nobody wants to listen to her ranting about the Logans, so she attacks the line and makes Rick the villain. And now-- now she's got an audience. And she has the attention just where she wants it-- on her.
Ridge: She crossed the line. This hurts our family. It hurts our company.
Brooke: Stephanie is undermining everything that Eric was trying to do. He was trying to bring us together, bring the family together, and we were headed in the right direction. Now where does this put us?
Steffy: Marcus wants to take me to big bear to be alone, get closer.
Steffy: Hey, I can't take your call, but if you leave a message--
Rick: Madison, Hey. It's Rick. Can you clear my schedule for the rest of the day, please? Thank you. Okay.
Rick: Jeez, Stephanie!
Stephanie: Oh, are you going somewhere?
Rick: Yeah, it's kind of important.
Stephanie: So is this. Your day of reckoning is at hand, my boy. You're naked in there to the world.
Eric: Is Steffy in the office today? Poor girl. Her sister is dead, and now she has to deal with this?
Donna: She'll be okay.
Donna: She's up in Big Bear with Marcus.
Eric: Do you think she's seen this?
Donna: I don't know.
Eric: I don't want her to be blindsided by it.
Donna: She's not alone, Eric. Look, Marcus isn't gonna let anybody upset her. He understands what she's dealing with. And he's gonna do everything in his power to make her feel better.
Marcus: It's too much.
Steffy: No. No, it's not.
Marcus: You're not ready for all this. You feel guilty. Phoebe's gone, and you're trying to have a good time, and it just doesn't feel right.
Steffy: I'm sorry.
Marcus: No. (Chuckles) don't be. I understand. I mean, it's tough. You have to deal with it on your own way in your own time. But you do know you can lean on me if you need to, right? I want you to, if you want to.
Steffy: Thank you.
Marcus: I'll always be here for you, Steffy.
Steffy: (Sighs) Um, can we not really talk about always?
Marcus: Okay. You're afraid to look far ahead right now. How fast everything can change-- look, it's scary, I know. But it doesn't have to be, as long as you're willing to take a chance. Like you and me. I mean, now that-- baby, that was way out of the blue. And I have never-- I've never been happier.
Ridge: Why couldn't she just leave it alone?
Brooke: This is your mother we're talking about. (Sighs)
Ridge: No. It isn't. It's Phoebe. My daughter and her death. We're all trying to heal from this, and my mother's out there rubbing salt in the wounds.
Brooke: I'm sure she didn't mean to do that. She certainly didn't want to hurt you. She just wants to hurt Rick and everybody who cares about him.
Ridge: She's attacking your family.
Brooke: Unfortunately, people will get hurt in the crossfire.
Ridge: (Sighs) But not us, not our family and not our marriage, 'cause that's what's important, Brooke. That's my priority.
Brooke: I'm glad to hear you say that.
Ridge: Oh, you need more reassurance?
Brooke: I need you to tell me that you'll be there when you get my e-mail.
Ridge: Be where?
Brooke: You have to wait until you get my e-mail.
Ridge: Yeah, but what a--
Rick: This is unbelievable. Why would you show this to me? To get a rise out of me and pick a fight? Or is Jarrett out in the hall right now? Hey, Jarrett, you out there? You want to see Rick go ballistic on Stephanie?
Stephanie: I haven't said anything to Jarrett that I haven't already said to your face.
Rick: Why the hell say anything at all, Stephanie? Come on. Why--why cause a scandal?
Stephanie: You being here is a scandal.
Rick: If you have a problem with me being here, take it up with the C.E.O., Because he wants me here.
Stephanie: At what cost?
Rick: You're spouting off to the press, and I'm bad for the company?
Stephanie: You are, and sooner or later, your father will figure that out.
Rick: So you want me fired.
Stephanie: I want you to quit.
Rick: This is total garbage. Here. I have somewhere to be.
Stephanie: Uh, do me a favor on the way down.
Stephanie: Would you stop at maintenance and tell 'em to pick up that video screen and pack up the rest of your stuff?
Rick: Why the hell would I do that?
Stephanie: Because when you come back, this office isn't going to be yours anymore.
Brooke: You got my e-mail.
Ridge: I didn't even bother going to the office. I just downloaded it directly to my phone.
Brooke: Here you are, right on time. Let the meeting begin.
Ridge: Don't tell me you've got the marketing department stashed in here somewhere.
Brooke: Oh, no. This is a very private meeting. We can't be interrupted when we're testing out our new design.
Ridge: Testing for what?
Brooke: Oh, shrinkage, durability. You know, the steam room can be a very demanding environment.
Marcus: There's been some distance between us even before the fashion show.
Steffy: Yeah, but we were busy.
Marcus: Yes, I know. And now we're not. Baby, I've missed you. The only reason why I didn't tell you before because I didn't want you feelin' bad that you needed your space. But it's been hard for me being apart from you. All I can think about was us and where this might be going. And out of respect for you and your family, I've taken things slow. (Sighs) I knew when I first saw you in the beginning that you were special. And you deserve to be treated that way.
Marcus: Baby, you deserve all the love and support that I have to give. My dedication, my devotion, baby, it's all yours, till death do us part. And my life to you serves one purpose, one priority, and that's making you happy.
Marcus: All I ask in return is that you give me one little word. Say yes. Say you'll be my wife.
Rick: You're trying to intimidate me, and it's not working. That frustrates you. I can tell.
Stephanie: The next decision that you make--this decision-- is going to be the most important decision of your life. Phoebe didn't understand what she was doing the night she got in the car with you. She didn't realize the decision that she was making. So I'm going to give you e chance that she never had. I'm gonna give you the chance to really consider-- what's the worst thing that can happen?
Rick: So you couldn't get my butt into court, so you're trying to convict me in the press.
Stephanie: You're going to pay for what you did to my granddaughter one way or the other.
Rick: Just keep pushing, Stephanie, I dare you.
Stephanie: Oh, believe me, I will.
Rick: So I guess you and I are having one of those moments. You want to talk about consequences? You want to talk about calling me out? You want to go to the press? It's all going to backfire on you. Because the more you press, the lower you will sink and the worse you will look in the eyes of the press, in the eyes of my father, in the eyes of everybody in this company. You keep hurting me, you're only gonna hurt yourself.
Stephanie: You really think you're gonna get away with this.
Rick: Get away with what? Stephanie, everybody in this building, everybody in this company, is trying to get over a very painful tragedy. Everybody except for you. And that makes you the odd person out. You're making a very, very big mistake making this personal. You may hate my mother. You may hate me. But you need to start to realize that I am Eric's son, his real son. This company is in my blood. It is my legacy. And if you keep fighting me, you will find out the hard way, because I will still be here, and you will be gone.
