Brooke: (Exhales) Rick!
Rick: Oh, my God.
Steffy: are you? Are you?
Rick: Yes, I'm fine. Thank God you're okay. You have no idea.
Ridge: Steffy, I'm coming!
Rick: Get out of the car. Get out of the car!
Steffy: My dad's gonna kill you.
Rick: I know. Get out!
Ridge: Oh, my God. Are you all right?
Steffy: Yeah, I'm fine, Dad.
Ridge: Are you all right?
Steffy: Yes, Dad. I'm not hurt.
Ridge: My sweet girl. My sweet girl.
Steffy: I'm not hurt. I'm not. I'm not hurt.
Brooke: Rick, are you okay?
Rick: I'm fine. I'm fine. I don't--
Ridge: Open the door, Rick.
Brooke: Rick, go. Get out of here!
Ridge: Open the door.
Brooke: Just go!
Ridge: Open the door. Open the door right now!
Brooke: Rick, go!
Ridge: Come on out. Come on out. Open up, Rick. Open up.
Eric: That's nice. Good. The shoes are good, too. All right? Thank you. I think that's it.
Eric: Thanks, darling. Good. (Sighs) (muttering indistinctly)
Donna: Do you need to take a break? Have some dinner? Something?
Eric: No, I cannot-- I cannot take a break.
Donna: You have been working around the clock.
Eric: I have no choice.
Donna: You're gonna wear yourself out.
Eric: Too late. I'm worn out already.
Donna: Why are you doing this?
Eric: Honey, I have to come up with a whole new collection.
Donna: No, I mean why are you letting Jackie get away with stealing our designs?
Donna: I mean, you should do something. You should sue her or press charges or something.
Eric: Sweetheart, what's done is done.
Donna: Jackie betrayed you. You and Ridge spent months creating that line, and she passed it off as her own.
Eric: Look, that's the whole point. It's been seen. That whole collection has been exposed, all right? I mean, this is cutthroat business out there. I don't have time to concentrate on some kind of a lawsuit. I really don't.
Donna: The Eric I know would never allow somebody to get away with something this vindictive.
Donna: So it makes me wonder, what exactly is your relationship with Jackie Marone?
Ridge: (Sighs) I'm not gonna lose you, too. Do you hear me? I'm not gonna lose you, too.
Steffy: Dad, you're not gonna lose me. Look at me. You are not going to lose me. I'm not hurt. I'm fine. I'm fine. I'm fine. I'm fine.
Eric: You have no reason to be worried about my relationship with Jackie.
Donna: Okay. Okay, fine. So it's not Jackie, but it's something else... or somebody else. Obviously, you're protecting whoever took those designs. Okay, fine. You don't want to tell me, and I understand. You'd rather keep it to yourself, but I--
Rick: I'm sorry. I need to speak to you, Dad, alone.
Eric: A-all right. Donna, would you mind?
Donna: Sure. Yeah.
Eric: Rick, what is it? What's wrong?
Rick: Ridge is going to kill me, Dad.
Eric: All right, calm down, Rick. T-tell me what happened. What's wrong?
Rick: No, Ridge--Ridge is-- he's gonna kill me. He's gone completely psycho, Dad.
Eric: What, is this about the designs he thinks you gave--
Rick: No, it's not about the designs anymore. It's not about that. It--it's something else.
Eric: Well, then what is it? You know what it is, right?
Rick: Yes, I know exactly what it is.
Eric: Well, then what is it? What--what is it?
Rick: All right, you--you know how in l--in life, you know, things--things happen that are--that are out of your control, and-- and you may not fall in love with the right person. Like--like you and Donna, right? You two fell in love, and the entire family disapproved of-- of your marriage, right?
Rick: Right, and then you two got together, and you were gonna get married, and then I-I approved of it. I stood up for you. I supported your relationship with Donna when nobody else did.
Eric: That's right, and your support meant a great deal to me.
Rick: Exactly, so now I-- I know what it's like to be desperately in love with somebody when your family doesn't approve.
Eric: So you've fallen in love with somebody, somebody new. Is that what you're saying?
Rick: Exactly. Yeah, I have. That's exactly what I'm saying.
Eric: Why is that upsetting to Ridge?
Rick: Because the person that I'm in love with happens to be Steffy.
Steffy: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry you had to go through that. But I'm okay.
Ridge: No, Steffy, you're not okay.
Steffy: Do you want me to go to the hospital? I can get checked out. Would that make you feel better?
Ridge: No, that's not what I'm talking about. That's not what I'm talking about, sweetheart. I'm talking about your relationship with Rick. There's more going on here. Have--have you two--
Steffy: No, no, no. Not yet, no.
Ridge: Not yet? No, not ever.
Steffy: W-we're not kids. The way I feel about Rick, it's--it's--
Ridge: Oh, God, I don't believe you're sh-- you're saying this. What he did to your sister-- I don't believe it.
Steffy: It wasn't his fault. What happened to Phoebe was an accident.
Ridge: Steffy, it was an accident caused by him using you to get to me. He wants to hurt me.
Steffy: He felt terrible about that. I felt grief and pain, and so did he. That's--that's how we came together. We just--we ju-- we--we bonded.
Ridge: You know, this is not the way it seems, Steffy.
Ridge: It's not. This is about revenge for him. That's what this is really about. He just wants to use you to get back at me. He wants to hurt me. That's all.
Steffy: It's not about you. What Rick and I feel is real! (Stomps foot)
Ridge: No, sweetie, it's not. If that's what he told you, it's not true.
Steffy: Why-- why would he lie about that?
Ridge: I don't know-- any number of reasons. Maybe it's because of what happened with Taylor, your own mother. He blames me for that relationship breaking up like that, you know. Maybe it's to do with when he was a kid and I was married to Brooke. I don't know, sweetie. It could be any number of reasons. What I do know for certain is that whatever Rick is feeling for you, it's not love.
Rick: It's true, Dad, about me and Steffy. I'm crazy about her.
Eric: That's impossible.
Rick: No, it's not. Listen, we--we came together at a time when we were both grieving over phoebe, and--
Eric: Rick, it's impossible. You cannot be in love with this girl.
Rick: Listen to me, okay? It is not impossible, because it's happening, okay? We are in love with each other, and I would do anything for her. She's the reason why I-I gave the designs to Nick, to Jackie M.
Eric: What? Why?
Rick: Because I told you why. Because I wanted a future with her, okay? And we would never be accepted here. Ridge would not accept us here.
Eric: Well, because you were behind the wheel when Phoebe died. He held you responsible for that.
Rick: I--no, I was not responsible for that.
Eric: I know, but he does -- he holds you responsible. Oh, my God, Rick! He was still grieving for the death of his daughter, and you get involved with Steffy? You had to know how that would affect him... or was that the whole idea?
Steffy: I know how you feel about Rick. I knew you were gonna get upset. That's why I tried to end it. We both did, but-- but we can't.
Ridge: Steffy, you're being used here. You're being manipulated. How do I get you to realize that?
Steffy: Brooke, Rick's your son. He's a good guy. He's not a bad person. And yeah, he's made mistakes, but don't you think it's possible that he could care about me?
Brooke: I'm not sure how Rick feels about anything anymore. He should have known that this would have hurt your father, and he should have respected him, but he didn't.
Ridge: I don't want you to get hurt. Rick is a master manipulator here, sweetie. He's used everybody in the family-- his mother, his father. And there's nobody he wants to stick it to more than me. So what better way to get to me than to go through you? My sweet girl, I don't want to lose another daughter. Please don't do that to me.
Steffy: No, I won't. No. I don't want to hurt--
Ridge: I'm begging you. Please don't make me--
Steffy: I don't want to hurt you, and I'm not gonna hurt you. (Sniffles) That's--that's why I was in the car. I was there to end it.
Ridge: Okay. That's the best decision-- not for me, but for you, okay? Sweetie, you're a smart, beautiful young woman. You deserve a relationship. You deserve somebody who will respect and honor you. You deserve a relationship that you never have to question or wonder about, okay? And you will have that someday. You will-- just not with Rick. I want to get you home.
Brooke: That's a good idea.
Ridge: Come on.
Brooke: I'll wait up for you.
Brooke: (Sighs) Rick, it's your mother. I'm worried about you. Please call me as soon as you can. (Hangs up cell phone)
Eric: I have been nothing but supportive of you, Rick. Your mother and--and me both.
Rick: I know. I know that.
Eric: You know, when--when-- when Ridge wanted to send you back to Paris, we stood by you. When you sent those designs over to Jackie M., I protected you. And now I find out you've been dishonest with me the whole time.
Rick: No, I haven't been dishonest. I just--I didn't give you-- I wasn't ready to give you the--the whole story. But I'm giving it to you now.
Eric: Yeah, because you've been caught. You've been lying to me the whole time.
Rick: No! No, I-- like I said, I wasn't ready to tell you the whole story. I wasn't lying when I said that I-I wanted a future, a career away from Ridge's disapproval. What I did not tell you at the time was that it wasn't just for me. It was for Steffy and me. I was doing it for us.
Eric: What?! What, have you actually convinced yourself that you betrayed your family for love? For Steffy? (Scoffs)
Rick: Dad, you know, I thought you, that you of all people would understand that.
Eric: Well, I don't! (Sighs) This relationship can never be. God, I expected more of you, my boy.
Rick: Oh, I get it. So once again, you're putting Ridge above me. It's a great surprise.
Eric: All right, don't do that. Don't do that! You're not gonna pull this guilt trip on me again, never again. You and you alone are responsible for your actions here. God, it is so obvious, so obvious that your getting involved with Steffy here was all you could do to just get back at Ridge.
Rick: Oh, God, are you kidding me? You think I would go this far to get back at Ridge?
Eric: I think you would have to be blind not to see how this looks to everybody. First, there was Phoebe, and then--and then-- and then Taylor, and now Steffy? My God, Rick, you-- you looked me in the eye, and you promised me that you would not let this family down again, and you have. You let me down. You let me down, Rick. I don't see how it's possible that--that--that you and Ridge will work together again. I'm gonna pull together a meeting, and we can discuss your future at this company. But I have to tell you, it doesn't look too good right now. (Door closes)
Brooke: (Sighs) (cell phone rings)
Rick: Hey, Mom.
Brooke: (Sighs) Rick, are you okay?
Rick: Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine.
Brooke: Where are you?
Rick: I'm in Dad's office.
Brooke: Well, Ridge is furious. Look, whatever you do, don't go home to the beach house tonight, 'cause if Ridge finds you there, there's no telling what he might do to you.
Rick: Well, where the hell am I supposed to go?
Brooke: I don't know. Go--go to a hotel. Go anywhere. Just stay from Ridge. And whatever you do, stay away from Steffy. I don't want you to make this situation any worse than it already is.
Eric: (Sighs) Oh, God.
Donna: Where was Rick tearing off to?
Eric: I have no idea. I just hope he has the good sense to stay away from Ridge.
Donna: (Scoffs) It didn't seem like he wanted to chat.
Eric: No, I heard-- I heard quite enough from my son earlier. Oh, God, I don't know-- I don't know what to think about this kid.
Donna: I know. I never would have guessed...
Donna: Rick and Steffy being involved.
Eric: He completely disregarded Ridge's wishes that he stay away from Steffy.
Donna: Well, now I know why Steffy broke it off with Marcus.
Donna: And I feel bad for him, but we don't always have control over our feelings.
Eric: Yeah. Yet Rick's involvement with-- with--with Steffy is just so wrong. It's just wrong on so many levels.
Donna: Yeah, but that's what your family said about us. They questioned our relationship and we stood up to them, and look at us,
Donna: Which makes me think if Rick is doing this when he knows his family is so opposed, it's-- it's got to mean something. Maybe what Rick and Steffy have is--is real.
Brooke: (Sighs) Oh, Ridge, I'm so sorry.
Ridge: It's been a rough night, huh?
Brooke: Yes. I know that you were frightened for your daughter, but you know what? She's fine. Everybody's fine. It could have been a lot worse.
Ridge: Yeah, well, that's what I keep telling myself. It's the only thing that kept me from going after Rick and ripping his head off.
Brooke: I can understand why you're upset. I'm upset, too. I just found out about Rick and Steffy myself tonight, and I was just telling him that he has to end this relationship before you walked in the door.
Ridge: I'm so angry at him for crossing the line.
Brooke: I have no idea what he was doing.
Ridge: He was having a relationship with my daughter, that's what he was doing.
Brooke: Well, it was wrong, and he knows that now.
Ridge: He knew it all along. He was just doing this to hurt me.
Brooke: I can't believe that he'd be that cruel. I am deeply disappointed in Rick, but we put an end to it, and Steffy doesn't want to hurt you. She understands that this can't happen.
Ridge: Does he understand that, though? Logan, I know he's your son, but if he ever goes near my daughter again--
Brooke: He won't.
Rick: Shh! No, no! It's just--it's just me.
Steffy: Rick. Rick.
Rick: It's just me. I'm sorry, I just-- I have to be with you.
Steffy: Well, you scared me half to death.
Rick: I know. I just--I-I couldn't stay away.
Steffy: My dad thinks you're using me, that this is all about revenge, that that's what this is about. Is it?
Rick: What do you think? What does your heart tell you? Listen to me. We're about ready to hit a very rough patch. I just need to know you're not gonna give up on me. I'm not gonna give up on you. I know your father says this has to end--
Steffy: It does.
Rick: No, it doesn't have to end.
Steffy: It does! I promised my dad I would end it. He is so upset, and what we put him through tonight was cruel.
Rick: I know. I wish it hadn't happened that way. I--
Steffy: We have to end it, not just for my dad's sake, but--but for your sake, too.
Rick: No, Steffy, no. You listen to me.
Rick: I'm not gonna-- no, I'm not gonna accept that. They can yell at me. They can scream at me. They--they can attack me. It's not gonna keep me away from you.
