Steffy: You're serious?
Rick: Totally serious. Steffy, I am so in love with you. I want to spend the rest of my life with you.
Steffy: I want that, too.
Rick: Then marry me. Be my wife.
Brooke: (Sighs) You have no idea how difficult it was. (Sighs)
Ridge: I can't even imagine. Thank you, Logan. After everything that's happened, Rick can't be a part of this company. He just can't.
Brooke: I know. (Sighs) that's why I had to ask him to leave. And as much as it hurt me, he's just not welcome here at Forrester Creations. I just feel like I've turned my back on my son.
Ridge: Well, this will help him. Hopefully, this will be the kick in the butt that will help him get his life back on track.
Steffy: Can we really just get married?
Rick: That's what people do when they want to spend the rest of their lives together.
Steffy: Mm-hmm. Yeah, if it were really that simple, though...
Rick: Oh, Steffy, it is that simple. Look, you love me. I love you. What more do you need?
Steffy: But how-- how can we--how-- where are we gonna do this?
Rick: We'll--we'll elope. We'll elope.
Rick: If that's what you want, yeah.
Steffy: I'd always imagine Hawaii.
Rick: Oh, that's so much better. (Laughs)
Steffy: But then what?
Rick: Well, then-- then we'll just do whatever makes us happy.
Steffy: Are we gonna have a life in L.A.?
Rick: Uh, maybe not at first, but yeah, it's possible.
Steffy: Or Paris.
Rick: Paris, yes.
Rick: I-I lived in Paris.
Rick: I still have a lot of contacts there. And look, we don't necessarily have to get involved in the fashion industry right away. I mean, I could sell Eiffel Tower key chains to tourists...
Rick: You know, so we can get by.
Steffy: Or--or we could go to London.
Steffy: Yeah, a lot of my friends from school--they actually have really cool jobs.
Rick: Yes, I could sell Big Ben key chains instead.
Steffy: Oh, Big Ben keys. Or, uh, we could be living in our London flat...
Steffy: While you sell Big Ben key chains all day long.
Rick: See? How perfect does that sound? How romantic does that sound?
Steffy: It does. It does sound perfect.
Rick: So... is that a yes?
Steffy: Rick, um, how can we do this? How can we do this? We ca--
Steffy: How--how are we supposed to get married?
Rick: Marry me.
Steffy: (Sighs) But my parents--
Rick: Please marry me.
Steffy: But we just can't-- we can't think about ourselves.
Rick: (Sighs) That's what people do. That's what people do when they're in love with each other.
Steffy: If that's what this is, yeah.
Rick: What's-- what is that supposed to mean?
Steffy: (Sighs) (sighs) I love you. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I... (sighs)
Rick: Okay, but--but what?
Steffy: Do you really love me? Or could marrying me be the ultimate act of revenge against my dad?
Brooke: I don't think Rick will ever look at me the same.
Ridge: He'll be angry with you for a while, but he will never stop loving you. You did the right thing, Logan. He'll appreciate that in time. He'll appreciate the fact that you cared enough to bust him on his reckless behavior.
Brooke: (Sighs) I hope you're right. (Sighs)
Ridge: In the meantime, we can put all the pressures from Rick behind us and focus on us and our family, okay?
Brooke: That sounds lovely.
Ridge: Let's be that family we always wanted to be. We've got a lot to celebrate, don't we? And I do think-- I do think that there will be a place for Rick in the family in time. But let him go out and grow up a little bit. Let him go away for a while and do some reflecting. But for now, he needs help, and I sure hope he gets it.
Ridge: I also hope he does what he's told-- he stays away. I don't want him anywhere near me for a long time, and that goes double for Steffy.
Rick: So... (scoffs) Steffy, you're-- so what you're saying is that you think that all of this between you and me and-- and everything I've told you is just some kind of a con?
Steffy: No. No, I-I don't question what you feel. I-I question what drives you to feel it. Maybe you hate my dad so much that you subconsciously make yourself fall in love.
Rick: That I "subconscious--" who is feeding you this crap? Steffy, people are--are-- are telling you these things, and it's getting into your head.
Steffy: Well, maybe it is, because maybe it's true.
Rick: Oh, my God.
Steffy: (Scoffs) You have to admit...
Steffy: Your behavior is bizarre. A few months ago, you proposed to my mom. She turned you down, and then you blamed my dad, and now you're proposing to me.
Steffy: I've given you my heart, but it doesn't feel very safe. I don't want to be a vehicle of revenge. I don't. I don't.
Steffy: But... (sighs) If you're using me, then let's just go our own separate ways. I just want to know. Are you using me?
Rick: (Sighs) The end of another day working for the man.
Rick: Steffy, my feelings for you are real.
Steffy: I want to believe you.
Rick: Well, look-- (sighs) our relationship-- it didn't start off with roses and love letters. I know that. It started off with me taking advantage of you. I'm disgusted by that. I thought that you were naive, okay? Naive enough to use to get back at your father. Look, I'm--it was awful. I'm embarrassed, okay? I am humiliated by that. I'm disgusted with what I allowed myself to become during that time. But know this-- Steffy, I swear I have never felt this way about anybody in my entire life. You brought up my engagement to Taylor earlier. Steffy, I don't even know who I was during that time. My head was--it was in a fog. I was--I was so busy trying to be somebody's savior. My heart has never pounded so hard, so fast than when I'm with you. Steffy, if that's not love, I don't know what the hell is. I am not faking this.
Steffy: No. No. No, this is pointless. This is pointless.
Steffy: It doesn't matter if I believe you or not. We just--we can't be together.
Rick: No, that's-- I'm not gonna accept that, okay? Because I'm selfish. Steffy, look what I've done. Look what I've done for you and for us. The designs--my God! I mean, I gave my father's hard work, my family's hard work to the competition for us. I've lost my family's trust. I've lost my father's trust. I've lost my mother's loyalty. But you know what? I don't care. I don't care, because I don't want to lose you.
Steffy: But that's the problem. You don't think before you act. You stole those designs...
Steffy: For a place for us? You proposed to me after my dad kicked you out of the company. Everything you do feels like this spur-of-the-moment grand gesture. I know we're supposed to be together. I feel it. But it's not just my parents keeping us apart. It's you. I can't be with someone who doesn't have their act together. I can't--I can't wake up every morning wondering what crazy thing you're gonna do next in the name of love.
Rick: Okay, you're right. (Laughs) you're abs-- you're absolutely right.
Steffy: What do you mean?
Rick: I mean that you're gonna see me differently. I've done everything wrong, and I'm not gonna do that anymore.
Rick: I'm gonna do everything right. You say that-- that we belong together, that you can see us spending the rest of our lives together. I believe that, too. I want to be the man that you want me to be. I'm gonna prove to you that I can be that man.
Rick: I love you.
Ridge: Feeling better?
Brooke: (Sighs) A little.
Ridge: That didn't sound very convincing at all.
Brooke: I'm sorry, Ridge. I'm just-- (sighs) I'm so worried about Rick. I just need a little more time.
Ridge: Mm. Well, how much time exactly? Um, because you're late.
Ridge: Yeah. Yeah, way overdue.
Brooke: For what?
Ridge: Kissing your husband. See, it's been about an hour since I felt those beautiful lips, and, uh, I really wouldn't want to see you get off your schedule.
Brooke: Oh. I didn't realize there was a schedule.
Ridge: Oh, yeah-- very strict, actually. You got to meet your quota every day.
Ridge: But the way things are going right now, I think there's a chance you might get written up, though.
Brooke: Well, we certainly can't have that.
Ridge: No, we can't.
Ridge: You feel better now?
Brooke: How could I not?
Rick: Look, I'm not gonna take up a lot of your time. I just wanted to come here and tell you that I appreciate, and I'm grateful for, everything that you've done for me over the past couple months, and I just-- I really didn't want it to end this way, so...
Eric: I'm not thinking of this as an ending. Look, it's--it's always been my dream to have my children working with me side by side. And, uh, although it's clearly impossible for you to be here now, I think things will probably change in the future.
Rick: Maybe, yeah. Working with you and Mom is-- it just felt right.
Eric: It did, didn't it?
Eric: Get some help, son.
Rick: I will, Dad. I promise. Look, I'm a proud man. I'm gonna walk out of here with my head held high. I'm not gonna be looking for pity. I'm sure as hell not gonna look for you and Mom to solve my problems again. I'm gonna prove to you that I can take care of myself.
Eric: Good. I'm glad.
Rick: I want you to know I never meant to disappoint you.
Eric: You did, and--and that hurt. But I never stopped loving you, son, and I never will. Come here. Impressive resume.
Rick: Look, you're not gonna hear from me for a while, but just know that I'm gonna be thinking about you, and I'm taking some steps to--to make up for my mistakes and earn back your respect.
Eric: You already have my respect, son.
Rick: Okay. (Sighs) Don't worry. I'm gonna come back after hours and get the rest of my things, so you don't have to worry about that.
Brooke: Rick, wait. I know you're angry with me, but I want you to think long and hard about why I had to make this decision-- why I had to fire my own son from our own family business. Look, maybe when we've all had some distance from this and... (sighs) you feel like speaking about this rationally, I will be here. I will always be here for you. And Forrester Creations does allow a second chance if you've earned it.
Rick: I understand. I mean, I-- (laughs) it's hard to think that, uh, you know, I deserve that, but I will work hard to-- to earn it. I've been so horrible to you two, and you didn't deserve my--my lies, my manipulations. I'm sorry about that. You raised me better than that. I really don't have a lot of respect for myself right now, so I got to get that back first, and then I can work hard to earn back your respect and the respect from the people that I love.
Brooke: I love you so much. (Sighs)
Rick: (Sighs) (clears throat) (sighs) (door closes)
Steffy: Marry you? (Sighs) God, I wish. (Sighs)
Rick: I want to be the man that you want me to be. I'm gonna prove to you
that I can be that man.
Steffy: (Sighs) If only you could do that.
Ridge: I just have a feeling he's up to something.
Eric: Ridge, you saw this kid. The only thing he was up to was some self-reflection.
Brooke: I think he walked out of here a different person. And you were right, Ridge. What he really needed was a good kick in the pants to get him to want to be the man that we all know he can be.
Eric: It might take some time, but I'm beginning to think that there might be a chance for our son.
Steffy: If my father sees us like this--
Rick: Just lis-listen to me for a second, okay?
Steffy: Seriously, we can't.
Rick: Steffy, I may be leaving Forrester Creations, but I'm not gonna give up on us. I can't. Listen to me. We're gonna be together. I promise you. I'm gonna show my family, I'm gonna show you that I can change, and I will change. They can take away my title. They can banish me from this company. They can even blame me for Phoebe's death. I don't care. But they cannot take you away from me. I am not gonna let that happen.
Steffy: But it can't happen. My father would probably--
Rick: To hell with your father.
Rick: I love you. Wait for me. I'll be back. I promise, I'll be back.
