Rick: Do you camp out at the beach or something?
Stephanie: One might think so. Any coffee for a weary traveler?
Rick: I'm going to work. I didn't make any.
Stephanie: Ahh. Well, all right. I won't keep you from work. I just came back because, um, I want to make sure that it's over between you and Steffy.
Jackie: Tell the banker that we've got a new designer. That should cheer him up.
Nick: From a business standpoint, Mother, it would really help me if I could meet this person.
Jackie: Darling, I have told you, she's very private, and she just feels comfortable working with me.
Nick: (Sighs) Could I have a name, please?
Jackie: "Madame X."
Nick: God, this business. Can I please go back and live on my boat?
Jackie: No, I don't think so. That is no longer suitable.
Nick: Who says?
Jackie: Well, I'm sure your fiancée would agree with me.
Katie: Hi, babe.
Katie: Mm. You left these on the kitchen table.
Nick: Thank you.
Jackie: Yes, well, I think that's my cue to leave.
Katie: Oh, no, don't run off on my account. You can't hide from me forever.
Jackie: (Sighs) Look, if you've got something to say, go ahead. Get it out of your system.
Katie: Don't patronize me. I have every right to be angry with you.
Jackie: For the very last time, we were sent those designs. We didn't steal them.
Katie: You produced them. You claimed them as your own.
Katie: And you sold every last one of them, and now Eric and Ridge have to redesign their entire line.
Nick: Katie, this was my call.
Jackie: Oh, and she didn't pressure you at all, I'm sure.
Nick: She was trying to save her company.
Jackie: Yeah, and I still am, so if you'll excuse me--
Katie: No, sorry. I won't.
Nick: We've been over this.
Jackie: (Scoffs) I don't believe this. I mean, Eric-- he's not holding a grudge. Why should you?
Katie: I'm engaged to your son. I work at Forrester. You had to know suspicion would fall on me.
Jackie: Okay, I'm sorry if I put you in an awkward position. I'm sorry. But I'm not sorry that I still have a business to run.
Nick: Now, I've apologized about this. I've been honest. I think it's time to move on.
Rick: Stephanie, please, do not push me on this.
Stephanie: If I were going to push you, I would have stayed here last night and waited for your answer.
Rick: So this is you being patient?
Stephanie: Are you going to end this?
Rick: Stephanie, please. I am exhausted. I didn't sleep last night.
Stephanie: I didn't sleep last night either. And?
Rick: You're unbelievable. Look, I am sorry, okay? I can't let Steffy go. I love her too much.
Stephanie: Oh, my God.
Rick: But you made some good points, okay? I mean, look--
Stephanie: Rick, this is never going to work.
Rick: No. See, that's the thing. I thought about this all last night. That's why I didn't sleep. Look, you say that-- that Ridge is not gonna be able to accept this, right? That--that--that he's-- that he's gonna be pushed to the edge when he finds out about Steffy and me, but he has to take into account what Steffy wants. If he loves his daughter as much as he claims, then he's gonna have to listen to her, and she's gonna tell him how much she loves me, and he's gonna have to accept it, even if it means he could lose her.
Stephanie: You're gonna make her choose? You're gonna put her right in the middle between you and her father?
Rick: No, see, that would be Ridge's choice, not Steffy's.
Stephanie: I gave you the chance to do the right thing, Rick. Now I'm telling you what you're gonna do. You're going to end it now. End it now. If you don't, you'll regret it, and she will, too, for a long time.
Rick: (Sighs) I'm in love with Steffy. I love her. I want a future with her.
Stephanie: And what kind of future is it going to be? Conflict? Unhappiness? Hostility?
Rick: You and Ridge can spare us that.
Stephanie: I can't. No.
Ric well, then Ridge needs to think about his daughter's happiness, okay?
Stephanie: This is just going to end disastrously. You've got to know that.
Rick: Lis--listen to me. Deep down, you know I'm a good person. I know you know that. And you had to come here, 'cause you have to get me to stop pursuing Steffy 'cause you're afraid she's not gonna stop pursuing me. It's been happening for years with my mother and Ridge, and you couldn't keep them apart either.
Stephanie: What, do you think the two of you are indestructible or something? This is so naive on your part. No one is going to want this. No one is going to support it. I mean, God, you and Steffy against the world-- I know that sounds so terribly romantic, but you know the reality of that kind of thing. You grew up with it.
Rick: No, my mom was never fighting "The world," Stephanie. She was fighting you.
Stephanie: If you continue down this road, you won't be fighting just me. You'll be fighting the whole family.
Rick: I can't--I can't-- I can't deal with this anymore. Okay, I'm done. We're finished here.
Stephanie: Ridge always knew exactly the sort of person your mother was. Steffy has no idea what kind of person you are, what you're capable of.
Stephanie: Do you really want to fight this battle?
Rick: I'm not afraid of you.
Stephanie: You should be.
Rick: (Exhales slowly)
Steffy: God, I've missed you.
Rick: You couldn't stand being away from me for one night, could you?
Steffy: Mnh-mnh. (Laughs) It was a long one.
Rick: Yeah, tell me about it.
Steffy: Hey. Is something wrong?
Rick: (Sighs) We have a problem, a big problem.
Stephanie: I should have called, but I have to talk to you.
Taylor: Oh, Stephanie, I'm so glad you're here. I could use a friendly face. And I--
Stephanie: Oh, sweetheart.
Taylor: I could use some good news right now.
Jackie: Hello? May I help you?
Bridget: (Foreign accent) Actually, Jackie, I am here to help you.
Bridget: Shh! (Whispers) Jackie, shh!
Jackie: (Gasps) Oh. Oh.
Jackie: Oh, Bridget, I don't believe this.
Jackie: I mean... (laughs) wow, let me see. You look marvelous. (Laughs)
Bridget: (Normal voice) But you did know it was me.
Jackie: Oh, yes, but you'd fool anyone else. I mean, nobody would recognize the good Dr. B. In that sexy outfit. Let me see it again. (Laugh) oh, wow.
Bridget: Well, thank you. I mean, I-I think.
Jackie: Oh, yes, darling. I mean, fashion's all about projecting an image and...
Bridget: You're right. It can do that.
Jackie: This one is magnifique.
Bridget: Okay, so what do you think it, um, what does it say about me?
Jackie: That you are definitely getting out of a rut and jumping back into life with both feet.
Bridget: Exactly. I can't wait to get started.
Bridget: I am so excited.
Jackie: Okay, I've got an idea. Do you work with an easel? Of course you do. Let's move this table, move all these tea things--
Bridget: Here? You mean you're not gonna squirrel me away some--down in some office? I figured, you know, less chance I'd see Nick.
Jackie: (Sighs) Darling, Nick doesn't work here very much, and once we sort it out with the bank, believe me, he'll be doing all the finances from home.
Bridget: You don't think he's going to want to meet the new designer?
Jackie: I told him that Madame X will be working only with me. (Laughs)
Bridget: Madame X? Madame X--as in ex-wife?
Jackie: Oh, my God, I hadn't thought of that.
Bridget: Of course.
Jackie: Sort a bit of a Freudian slip, really, isn't it?
Bridget: (Laughs) I love it, actually. I-I love it. It sounds, um... (foreign accent) very mysterious, darling.
Jackie: The press are gonna love it, too. Oh, my, I've just had a great idea--something to pump up the intrigue when Madame X is being interviewed.
Bridget: (Normal voice) Interviewed? Jackie, I couldn't do that. I don't think that's a great idea for me.
Jackie: But, darling, the press is just part of the job. Don't worry about it. You can't hide in the shadows forever.
Jackie: Bridget, you have to know that sooner or later your family are going to find out that you're working for the competition.
Taylor: (Sighs) (sniffles)
Stephanie: Are you hibernating?
Taylor: (Sniffles) oh, just a bad morning.
Stephanie: What happened?
Taylor: (Sniffles) I woke up at--in the morning, and I smelled coffee brewing, and I-I threw on my robe thinking that Phoebe and Steffy were downstairs making breakfast, and I almost reached my bedroom door, and I actually called out her name. (Sobs) and then I remembered, and it was... (sniffles) it was just, like, for those few precious moments, that she was here again. She was here with us, and she was downstairs cooking breakfast with her sister.
Stephanie: (Whispers) I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
Taylor: (Sniffles) (Sighs)
Stephanie: (Normal voice) Is Steffy here?
Taylor: No, she's at work. She always leaves me these little notes on the coffeepot. I know she's worried about me. She stands outside of my door. I know she's outside the door in the hallway listening to see if I'm crying. (Sniffles)
Stephanie: She's a good girl.
Taylor: (Sighs) (sniffles) Yeah.
Stephanie: Taylor, have you noticed any change in her?
Taylor: (Laughs) I-I catch her smiling sometimes, and I know she tries to hide it, and I've told her it's okay, that I want her to be happy.
Stephanie: How do you think she's coping with this?
Taylor: (Sighs, sniffles)
Stephanie: I mean, is there anything that you're concerned about where she--
Taylor: Like what?
Stephanie: That she's lonely? I mean, that she's vulnerable because she's lost half of herself?
Taylor: Yeah, I've-- I've discussed that with her, that she lost the most important person in her life, her twin, and that would make her very vulnerable, and she just needs to be aware that she might try to fill that void with something either positive or negative.
Stephanie: Well, I think she's filling that void, but I'm afraid it's not in a positive way.
Steffy: What? What happened?
Rick: Stephanie was here this morning, and she was here last night. She knows about us.
Rick: She was spying on us the last time we were together and we were talking, and she overheard everything.
Steffy: Everything that we--we were talking about? Y-you and--and me and my grandfather's designs?
Steffy: Oh, my God. What--what are we-- what are we gonna do? (Sobs) oh, my God.
Rick: Steffy, I don't-- I don't want you to freak out about this, okay?
Steffy: Freak out? Freak out? It's my grandmother, and she knows. God, she's had a vendetta against your whole family my whole life, and the way she feels about you, I just--
Rick: Oh, I know. She made that quite clear-- that I'm a manipulative opportunist just like my mom. I know.
Steffy: She thinks you're manipulating me?
Rick: The whole situation.
Steffy: (Sobs) Oh, God, I-I have to talk to her.
Rick: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Wait! No, no, no, no, no.
Steffy: No, no, no, no, no. I have to!
Rick: Listen to me! Stephanie wants us to end things.
Steffy: Well, are you?
Rick: Well, I-I was thinking about it.
Rick: No, l-listen--listen to me. She was--she was just making a lot of sense with everything she was saying about what could possibly happen...
Steffy: No, no. No.
Rick: But I love you too much. I couldn't do it.
Steffy: I love you. I love you.
Rick: Listen, Stephanie was angry this morning, okay? But last night, she was worried, mostly worried about you. And I was trying to explain to her how we feel about each other and what we have is real.
Rick: But she's just not listening to me.
Steffy: She's gonna tell my dad.
Rick: No, she's not.
Steffy: No, yes, she's going to tell my--
Rick: No, no, she's not going to do that.
Steffy: You don't know my grandmother. She doesn't bluff, and she doesn't give up. She'll split us up no matter what, no matter who she hurts.
Rick: (Sighs) (Seagulls calling)
Rick: Stephanie is not gonna tell your dad, at least not yet, okay?
Steffy: (Sniffles) You convinced her not to?
Rick: She just doesn't want him to find out any more than we do.
Steffy: (Sniffles) no. No, he--he can't. He can't find out. (Sniffles) I talked to him yesterday, and he's completely paranoid about this. He just wants to keep me safe and away from you, and he just-- he thinks you're the devil. If he were to find out anything about this, I just don't--
Rick: (Sighs) Steffy...
Rick: He's gonna find out eventually.
Steffy: No. No.
Steffy: No, he's not.
Rick: Well... (sighs) think about it, you know? If we want people to accept us, to get behind us, we have to prove to people, to show people that what we have is real, including your father.
Steffy: There's-- there's no way. (Sniffles) He's not ready, nowhere near ready.
Rick: Steffy, Stephanie knows about us. That means somebody else is gonna find out. That means other people are gonna find out.
Rick: And do you want your father to learn about us that way, through a third party?
Steffy: No, I know. (Sniffles) I-I just-- I don't know what I can do. I just--I don't know what I can do.
Rick: Okay. Okay. Okay. Shh.
Steffy: (Sniffles) I just don't know. I just--I, like, I need some--some advice, someone who can handle my grandmother and my dad. Somebody... (sniffles) my mom. We gotta talk to my mom. (Sniffles)
Bridget: I thought we agreed to keep this under wraps.
Jackie: (Sighs) I am not going to shove you into the spotlight, not yet anyway.
Jackie: But, darling, look at these designs. I mean, look at them. They're brilliant. They're going to cause a stir, and we've got to be prepared for that. And then we've got to create a backstory and--and work on a persona.
Bridget: I mean, why don't you just let the--
Nick: Mother, banker bob needs more information on our hot new designer project.
Jackie: Darling, I'm in a meeting.
Nick: Well, I just joined it. Will you introduce me, please?
Jackie: Uh, this--this-- this is my--my son.
Nick: How you doing? Dominick Marone.
Bridget: (Foreign accent) Madame... Madame X. Enchanté, Monsieur Marone.
Taylor: Stephanie, what's going on? What's happened to Steffy?
Stephanie: Taylor, she's gotten herself into a situation that I think might end badly.
Taylor: You're scaring me, Stephanie. Just tell me.
Stephanie: No, no, please-- all right. You've been shielding your grief from Steffy. I think that she's been shielding her grief from us.
Taylor: No. No. We talk about everything. She--she tells me her feelings.
Stephanie: No, no. You haven't talked about this. She's involved with a man, and I think he's using her.
Taylor: What do you mean? She's only mentioned Marcus.
Stephanie: No, this man she's kept secret.
Taylor: Why would she do that?
Stephanie: Because he's used you.
Taylor: Used me? Who? Who--wh-who are you talking about?
Rick: No, I know. We're gonna be just fine. Just--
Taylor: You? No! You and my daughter?!
Taylor: (Sighs, scoffs)
