Bridget: Rick, are you gonna answer me? What the hell do you think you're doing?
Bridget: Oh, I don't even want to hear it. Obviously, you didn't listen to a word that I said.
Rick: Look, I can explain what's going--
Bridget: No, you can't explain anything. How could you possibly -- possibly think that this would be okay? You and Steffy will never be okay.
Man: Can I help you?
Jackie: Uh, well, have you got the time? I mean, it's a madhouse in here.
Man: Our food is still superb. We've been a bit slow due to the economy.
Jackie: Oh, the "e" word. You don't have to tell me about that one. Um, I'm gonna take the grilled salmon to go, please. And don't be stingy.
Jackie: Robin? Robin McGraw.
Robin: Jackie? Jackie Marone?
Jackie: Oh, my God, it's been ages.
Robin: It has been a long time.
Jackie: Well, you are definitely doing something right. I mean, you look more energetic and younger than ever.
Robin: Well, I'm trying not to let the calendar get the better of me.
Jackie: Well, you're succeeding admirably.
Robin: There are a lot of women in this country who really fear getting older.
Jackie: Tell me about it.
Robin: But look at you-- your style, the way you carry yourself.
Robin: Everything about you says, "I am a woman in control of my life."
Robin: You don't feel that way?
Jackie: No comment.
Robin: (Scoffs) You know, every woman owes it to herself to be the happiest and the healthiest she can be. If you felt better about yourself, you're a better mother, a better wife, a better friend, a better sister. And, you know, it is not selfish to put yourself first.
Jackie: Do I feel a tiny-weeny lecture coming on?
Robin: No, no, no, no. But it is a subject I'm very passionate about. I'm gonna send you a copy of my new book. There might be something in there that might help you. Not that I'm saying you need it.
Jackie: (Scoffs) Please. Everyone needs a little bit of help now and then.
Robin: Well, that's exactly why I wrote the book-- just a little reminder to be good to yourself, even in the good times and the bad.
Jackie: Well, you know what? If your book can do that for me, I'm just rushing right out, and I'm gonna buy me a copy.
Robin: (Chuckles) I think that's great. Enjoy the book, and enjoy your life. Have fun. We only get one life.
Jackie: (Laughs) bye, robin.
Jackie: Thank you. Bye.
Jackie: Stephanie? Is that you enjoying a rather early happy hour?
Stephanie: "Happy" is not necessarily the word that comes to mind.
Jackie: Hmm. Rough day at the office?
Stephanie: Rough year at the office. And from what I hear, you could probably use a drink, too. Would you care to join me?
Jackie: Not much of a drinker these days, actually.
Stephanie: Oh. It's on me.
Jackie: That's very gracious.
Stephanie: It's the least I can do. I hear your business is on the skids.
Jackie: Whatever you've heard, Stephanie... (sighs) things are much, much worse.
Stephanie: Oh. Well, then you could use a martini.
Stephanie: Excuse me. Uh, could we have another one of these, please? Maybe you better make that a double.
Jackie: Oh, what the hell. (Sighs)
Katie: You know, Nick, I have been thinking. Um, I know we've been talking about having this big, extravagant wedding, but I-I just don't think that's what I want.
Katie: (Sighs) I just don't think we need a big party to prove how in love we are with each other. I mean, you and Jack are what makes me happy. Why don't we just elope?
Nick: What are you talking about? Where is this coming from?
Katie: It's just-- it's so extravagant, and I mean, even this house is so huge, you can get lost in it. I was even thinking that maybe we might want to find something cozier, just you and me and Jack.
Nick: Did you look in my computer?
Nick: Did you look in my computer?
Katie: I-I, um, I did, but I-- you--you were just acting so strange.
Nick: So you were checking up on me?
Katie: I-I felt I had to. I'm sorry.
Nick: How do you feel now?
Katie: Bad. I saw how bad it is.
Nick: No, it's actually a bit worse than that. We can't pay on the note. I'm in default, and I'm not quite sure how much longer I can hold off the banks.
Bridget: My God. I can't believe-- I can't believe that you came up here after I already explained how dangerous it would be for you to be alone with Steffy. And Rick, I'm not just talking about you. I'm talking about Steffy, too.
Steffy: You told her?
Rick: She saw us kissing in my office.
Bridget: Twice. Twice now I have caught you guys kissing. You oughta be really, really glad that it was me that walked through that door. Do you know how many people have keys to this cabin? What if Mom walked in the door? Or, God forbid, your dad? Ridge?
Rick: That's ridic-- there's no way in hell that's going to happen.
Bridget: Oh, really?
Rick: Yeah, really.
Bridget: (Chuckles) I don't think you're using your head, Rick. I know that there is something going on here, but whatever it is, it's gotta stop now.
Steffy: We can't help it. It's already happened. We're not gonna turn back.
Rick: Look, Bridget, it's complicated, okay? We've fallen in love.
Bridget: Then fall out of it.
Rick: Look, Bridget, I know what this is, okay? I get it. But I have been trying to hide my feelings. Steffy, too.
Bridget: Well, try harder, Rick. You can fall in love with anyone in the whole world except Steffy.
Steffy: We both know no one can know about this. Bridget, I'm begging you, please do not tell anybody.
Bridget: Oh, I'm not gonna tell anyone, Steffy. Of course I won't. But it's just a matter of time before people figure this out. You have got to walk away before things get deeper. I am so sorry. But nothing good will ever come of this.
Jackie: You are a wicked influence, Forrester. My company's in the toilet, so I've got an excuse to have a drink. What's yours?
Stephanie: (Scoffs) Eric Forrester.
Jackie: Ahh. (Chuckles)
Stephanie: Oh, lord. It seems to me that you and I had a battle or two over him.
Jackie: Yeah, I vaguely remember.
Stephanie: Mmm. But to lose in the end to a blonde bimbo Barbie doll... (shudders)
Jackie: (Chuckles) you know, I was actually rooting for you to win this one.
Stephanie: Well, thanks. I don't know who he is anymore. I really don't. (Sighs) I don't think I've ever been more frustrated with Eric at any moment in my life than right now.
Jackie: It's typical, though, isn't it, really? You know, for the man to go for, well, youth rather than... experience.
Stephanie: (Laughs) that was delicately put.
Stephanie: (Sighs) you know, it's not just his poor taste. It's his poor judgment. He's backing Rick and those Logan girls o--running the company over my children and me, and I don't think he has any right to do that.
Jackie: Well, it is his company.
Stephanie: It's our company. It wouldn't even be a company if my father hadn't given us the money to start it up in the beginning.
Jackie: Sounds to me like he needs to be taught a lesson.
Nick: You know, you do stupid things when you make investments based on emotions.
Katie: This is not your fault. You had a great business plan.
Nick: I knew I was getting in over my head. Damn it.
Katie: You couldn't have predicted any of this. Honey, no one knew that the economy was gonna get this bad.
Nick: Well, if I'm as smart as you think I am, I'd have bailed us out a long time ago.
Katie: And you will.
Nick: If this was my business, I'd have moved on. I'd have dumped it. But it's not. It's my mother's. She loves these boutiques. I invested in it because of her, and it kills me the thought of her losing 'em.
Katie: I'm gonna get that. You haven't lost anything. We're gonna find some answers. Um, Mr. Williams from the bank is here.
Nick: Send him in.
Mr. Williams: Mr. Marone.
Nick: Mr. Williams, I hear. You must be looking for money. Mm. You know, I just saw about $50 million laying around here just a bit ago. You wouldn't have happened to run into it, would you? I thought it might be back here.
Mr. Williams: You're running out of time, Mr. Marone. You're about to lose Jackie M.
Mr. Williams: I'm sorry. I despise these situations, and with our current economy, we have, uh, too many of them. But we have little choice. Your loan has been extended more than once.
Nick: I just didn't think you'd foreclose this soon.
Mr. Williams: As your lender, we're out of options, too, I'm afraid.
Nick: My son lives in this house.
Mr. Williams: I can give you 24 hours before we take action. But after that, there's nothing more that I can do.
Nick: 24 hours?!
Mr. Williams: I'm sorry. That is the best I can do. I'll see myself out.
Nick: I'm gonna need a little time alone. I want you to take Jack over to Brooke's for the night.
Katie: No, I'm not leaving you. No way.
Nick: Katie, please! Just go!
Bridget: Oh, Rick, come on. You can't possibly be serious. Think about this!
Rick: Bridget, I'm sorry. I love her.
Steffy: And I love him.
Bridget: This is just absolutely impossible. You two will never be able to be together because our families won't allow it. It's just that simple. So whatever you two feel for each other, whatever happened here in the cabin, let it go, and walk away. Do you understand? I'm so sorry. And I-I can't imagine how you're feeling, but, Rick, you know that nothing good will ever come of this. Please, listen to me.
Rick: Bridget, I know you're just trying to help us, but...
Bridget: Well, are you hearing me? Are you listening?
Rick: Yeah. Yeah, we hear you.
Steffy: What are we gonna do? What are we going to do?
Rick: Steffy... (sighs) hey.
Rick: I am not going to stay away from you. Don't ask me to do that, because I can't.
Katie: I dropped Jack off at Brooke's. But I'm not leaving you.
Nick: When I smoke and drink heavily, I like to be alone.
Katie: We'll work this out together.
Nick: Well, you better get your life jacket, honey, 'cause this ship is sinkin'.
Katie: That's all right. I'm stickin' with the captain.
Nick: Don't say I didn't warn ya.
Katie: I don't think I'm making a mistake.
Nick: Stop being so nice about this, will ya? I don't think I like nice people.
Katie: Well, I like you. And I'm staying by your side. Oh that looks hearty. It must be...
Nick: (Sighs) you shouldn't be having to deal with these problems that are mine. I promised you so much more than this. Will you just go back to Brooke's, please? Just go to Jack and--
Katie: I'm not sleeping at my sister's, so you can just get over it. You can't blame yourself for this.
Nick: Thank God! Who should I blame?
Katie: You put together a huge international retail chain. You made a smart, calculated risk. In this economy, retail sales are bad. That's not your fault, and it doesn't make me love you any less.
Nick: I don't think you get it.
Katie: Oh, I think I do.
Nick: I don't think you understand how serious this is.
Katie: (Scoffs) I think I do. I have spent most of my life with very little material wealth. I know exactly how it feels.
Nick: You may end up with nothing.
Katie: I don't care. I love you. I don't love your money. When two people love each other, they stand by each other. They support each other no matter what. I am with you forever. You have been there for me, and now it's my turn. I will stand up for you. There's nothing I wouldn't do for you, Nick. Nothing.
Katie: Nothing. (Sobs)
Rick: Bridget has every right to be concerned, but I can't stay away from you.
Steffy: I don't want you to.
Rick: Hey, we're connected. I couldn't stay away if I tried.
Steffy: Well, then what are we gonna do?
Rick: Well, um, we'll continue to keep this a secret and see where it takes us.
Steffy: (Sighs) God. I just want to stay-- I want to stay here forever.
Rick: Me, too.
Steffy: (Sighs) but I better get back to L.A. before they call out a search party for me, right?
Rick: Yeah, that would be a good idea.
Rick: Come on.
Nick: I'm willing to meet any conditions you set to have some additional time. I'll pay any extra interest over a certain allotment of time, and-- no, no, I kn--I know. I discussed that. I-I-I understand it's difficult. Right. Thank you.
(E-mail alert rings)
Nick: What the hell is this? W-"Forrester creations"? A Forrester design? Oh, my God.
