Steffy: No. No, no, no. I can't believe what I'm hearing now.
Rick: Steffy--St--St--Steffy, please, just listen to me, okay? I did this for you, for me, for us. I did this for our future together.
Steffy: For us? For us. You stole my father's designs, my grandfather's hard work for us? How could you think that would be better for us?
Jackie: We're a hit. We are the biggest story in fashion.
Clarke: You hear that sound? Ca-ching. That's the sound of debts being paid off.
Jackie: Oh, Nicky, we're back in business. And if you're worried about repercussions, don't be, 'cause there are not gonna be any.
Nick: There already e repercussions. Brooke thinks we stole the designs, and so does Eric.
Clarke: "Stole"? Did you say, "Stole"? That's not how I remember it.
Jackie: And they're not gonna be able to prove anything. I mean, yeah, the Forresters are gonna make a lot of noise. They're good at that. But they won't sue us because they truly don't have a case. And if they try to build one, they are going to look really, really bad.
Nick: You think that's the only fallout here, Mother, whether or not we're sued? There are other issues.
Jackie: Name one. I--
Katie: Did he tell you who did this, who betrayed us?
Katie: Does he care that fingers are pointing at me?
Brooke: Katie, you obviously didn't do it, so I don't think he's too worried about that.
Katie: Oh, come on. Brooke, he knew that this was going to put me in a bad light. He didn't even warn me. I just don't know how he could do something like this. He's just not the man I thought he was.
Brooke: I wouldn't overreact.
Katie: Overreact? He sabotaged the company that I work for, and I'm on the front lines of this. I deal with the media, and this is a P.R. nightmare. I've been promising the world a collection like no other, and--and-- what am I gonna tell everyone? I just don't think I can go home tonight.
Eric: I don't know, Gloria. An injunction would be nice, but whatever you can do. I don't want them to be able to sell those designs. Good. Well, anything new?
Ridge: About who did this to us? No, not yet.
Ridge: What are we gonna do, Dad?
Eric: I don't know, Ridge. I don't know. We're supposed to show a new collection in a couple of days, except we now-- we don't have one to show.
Ridge: All this work.
Eric: Oh, God. We've had major setbacks, son, but this one really hurts.
Ridge: We have to find out who's responsible for this.
Eric: Oh, yeah. And we will. And whoever did this is going to jail.
Rick: Steffy, we can't go on like this here. Even you realize that.
Steffy: So you helped us by stabbing my dad, your dad and the whole company in the back? That's really gonna make them accept us.
Rick: Look, nothing was gonna make them accept us. That's the point. We would never have a future together here.
Steffy: What were you thinking? We're gonna have a future by stealing designs and working for the competition?
Rick: Look, I tried to reach out to your father, okay? He threw it back in my face. I recognize the fact that this was a-a bit rash.
Steffy: R-rash? It was crazy.
Rick: No, you know what's crazy, Steffy? What's crazy is what I've had to deal with here ever since I became president. I got Stephanie threatening to try to get me fired every single day of her life. I got your father making me feel ridiculously uncomfortable. Thorne and Felicia are giving me lip every time I make a decision. Nobody respects me here. I want to get the hell out of here. And you gave me the perfect excuse-- us. Steffy, I love you.
Steffy: Rick, they're gonna find out what you did. They are. The minute you start working at Jackie M., They're going to put it all together.
Rick: Or they'll realize what I just said and that it makes perfect sense-- that I'm upset here. I have issues with the people here. I'm gonna go work for another company.
Steffy: Now you're scaring me. You're dreaming. It scares me. I can't--
Rick: Ste--Steffy, you have--you have nothing to be afraid of, okay? This is a perfect plan. I'm gonna be president of this company. You're gonna have a great job over there. We're gonna turn Jackie M. into a first-class fashion house. And the best part is we're gonna do it together. We're gonna be free to be ourselves, to--to be who we want to be, to be in love.
Steffy: You used your love for me to tear down my family. You didn't help us. You destroyed us.
Jackie: Katie? You're worried about Katie? (Laughs) don't be, darling. She'll come around.
Nick: You think so?
Clarke: Hey, you bailed yourself out of a jam, and you saved your mother at the same time.
Jackie: And secured a financial future for Katie and Jack.
Nick: I'm not quite sure she'll see it that way. (Knock on door)
Clarke: All right. Oh, hello.
Jarrett: (Laughs) Just who I'm looking for.
Nick: Not now, Jarrett. We're having a meeting here.
Jarrett: Uh, well, just one or two pictures. Uh, uh, a few questions. Uh, Clarke, can we have you over by Jackie?
Clarke: Oh, certainly. Certainly. Yeah. Here we go. Uh, here. Oh, wait. This is my good side. (Laughs) and here's my other good side. (Laughs)
Jarrett: So well, uh, uh, what an amazing day for your company. Uh, did you have any idea that, uh, you were going to get this kind of reaction?
Jackie: Well, we were hopeful.
Clarke: She's being modest. We knew that my designs would shake up the fashion world.
Jarrett: (Laughs) And indeed, they did, and what timing. I mean, everyone knows that your company was on the verge of collapse.
Clarke: All right, Jarrett, that is yesterday's news. Uh, we don't need any government bailouts. We've got Clarke Garrison.
Jackie: You know what, gentlemen?
Nick: (Whispering) Come on, Katie. Answer.
Jackie: We actually were in a meeting, so if you could just take a couple more?
Eric: I took a lot of pride in this collection, and to have it pirated like this and...
Ridge: You'll come back from this, Dad. We'll come back from this. We always do.
Eric: Well, we always have before.
Eric: Thank God for you, son.
Eric: We gotta find out who did this.
Rick: Steffy, what were our options? We want to be together, right? That can't happen here.
Steffy: Rick, you're being shortsighted. Why were we sneaking around over here? To keep my dad from finding out. It was the one and only obstacle. Nothing changes if we work at Jackie M. in fact--in fact, my dad will know, and it will rip him apart. That's exactly what I don't want to do to him.
Rick: So where does that leave us? Where does that leave us? I did this whole thing so that we could be together because I thought that's what you wanted.
Steffy: You made a mistake, a big mistake. How could you actually think I wanted to go along with this?
Rick: Because we love each other.
Steffy: A love that hurts our family, a love that lies and steals from them is a sick, sick love. Nothing good can come of this. My dad and your dad are devastated from what you did today. They're looking for the culprit. They're gonna find you. All you can do now is just come clean.
Rick: Come clean?
Steffy: Yeah, come clean. Don't let them launch an expensive investigation. They'll find out it was you, and that's gonna hurt them more. Just tell the truth. Just tell the truth.
Rick: If I do that, will it make a difference for us?
Steffy: There's no "us" anymore.
Rick: Please don't say that. I don't believe that. Listen to me. I'm gonna go talk to my dad, okay? I'm gonna tell him everything if that's what you want. Angel: You're new!
Clarke: Yes, yes, and I-I think we should have a lovely cover.
Jackie: We can do that, but let's do it outside, okay?
Nick: Hey, it's me again. I would really like to talk to you. I'm sorry. So would you call me, please? (Hangs up cell phone)
Katie: (Inhales deeply) He left a message.
Brooke: You are going to call him back.
Katie: I don't know.
Brooke: Can't you see this from his perspective?
Katie: I understand that he has a huge responsibility toward his mother. She made huge sacrifices for him when he was growing up. (Sighs) I understand that. I'm his fiancÚ. We were gonna get married.
Katie: I don't know what's gonna happen now. Could you marry someone who's not completely honest with you?
Ridge: Oh, good, you're here. Did you talk to Nick?
Brooke: Yes. (Sighs)
Brooke: He's not going to pull the line.
Ridge: Oh, that bastard. Did he at least tell you who fed him the designs?
Ridge: You know, I feel like going over there and just--
Brooke: Ridge, don't.
Ridge: (Sighs) What about you, Katie? Can't you talk to him?
Brooke: Let's not involve Katie.
Ridge: Involve her? She's already involved. She's about to marry the guy. Oh, I get it. He did this behind your back, too, huh? Well, Nick's really showing his true colors these days, isn't he?
Brooke: (Sighs) can we not talk about Nick?
Ridge: Fine. Let's talk about Dad. I just came from his office. He is torn apart by all of this, Brooke. We have got to find out who turned on us before they destroy this whole company.
Eric: Thorne, look, I want answers. No, I want answers, Thorne. I-I-I ask you to devise the system to pre-- prevent this sort of thing, and it happens anyway. All right, I want you to get to the bottom of it. I mean it. Thank you. (Slams down telephone) well... (laughs) we got quite a disaster on our hands here.
Rick: I know. That's why I'm here. We gotta talk.
Eric: (Sighs) I-I-I can't believe this. I mean, somebody-- somebody from the inside betrayed us. Now I've dealt with industrial espionage from the outside before. But this? Never. This has never happened to me.
Rick: I know who it is, Dad.
Eric: What, you do?
Rick: This traitor that you're talking about, this saboteur, it's me.
Steffy: You did this for us.
Rick: I love you.
Steffy: No. No, no. (Sobs) How could you do this for us?
Brooke: (Sighs) Poor Katie. (Sighs) she's having such a hard time with this.
Ridge: Does that really surprise you? She's involved with Marone.
Brooke: Well, this is so unlike him.
Ridge: Oh, really? (Scoffs) I'm sorry, Logan, but I hate to be so cynical, but he's really done a number on us this time. If you could have seen Dad-- it broke my heart. Oh... (sighs) he was so proud of this collection, Logan. This was going to be his comeback party after the heart attack. All the work that we put into that, and now it's all gone. We can't go back to it. We can't re-create it. We just have to forget about it, go back to the board and start over. (Sighs) it's easier for me than it is for him. You see, Dad had something to prove-- that he wasn't finished, that he wasn't washed up. Now I feel like I've got something to prove. I've gotta prove that he can do it again. I feel like I've gotta be his inspiration now.
Brooke: And you will be. You will be his inspiration, and I'll be yours.
Ridge: Oh, Logan.
Eric: You gave my designs to Nick and Jackie?
Rick: I did, yes.
Eric: All right, who-- who--you're the president of this company, Rick. You don't have to protect anybody. Who are you covering for?
Rick: I'm not covering for anybody, Dad. I-I'm telling you the truth. It was me.
Rick: I e-mailed the entire collection to Jackie M. Designs, and do you want to know why? Because of Stephanie, Thorne, Felicia, Ridge. It became apparent to me over the past couple months, Dad, that I would never be truly accepted as the president of this company. I had the title, yeah, sure, but it didn't mean anything. I never earned it. I manipulated you. I guilted you into giving it to me, and it was a joke to our family. It was a gift from a father to a very spoiled son, and I was mocked for it. You were mocked for it, and I couldn't take it anymore. Now, look, there are other contributing factors to this. I really don't want to get into those. The--the bottom line is I cut a deal with Nick Marone. I would give him Forrester's latest collection in exchange for a job of respect at a company that would appreciate my services. I want a future in my career, Dad. That's something that I would never have here.
Eric: I'm your father.
Eric: You did this to your father?
Eric: You gave my collection to them?
Rick: Yeah. Dad, you'll never know how sorry I am for this.
Eric: (Sighs) You're sorry?
Eric: (Inhales deeply) (Sighs) You committed a crime. You committed a crime against me and--and against our family. And you did this why?
Eric: You did this, uh, for respect? What are you? What are you, 11? I look at you, I don't even know who you are. Who the-- I don't even know you anymore. I don't--I don't know who you are. Who are you? I do know one thing, though. I know that you're living in the shadow of your brother, and I think I know why.
Eric: Because you're nothing compared to him. You never will be.
Eric: You are no Ridge Forrester.
