Jarrett: Don't keep us in suspense, Brooke.
Woman: We've have heard rumors about a change in the company.
Brooke: Uh, well, as you know, Forrester Creations is a family business. Each one of us--we have a stake in its future.
Jarrett: So it is personal? It must be. Uh, otherwise, you wouldn't be so flustered.
Taylor: This isn't something we should be discussing. My daughter is my only concern.
Bridget: You're telling me it doesn't bother you at all that my brother is being forced out of the company? Taylor, my dad is gonna make that announcement today.
Bridget: Ridge will listen to you.
Taylor: Your mother can't change his mind, so I can?
Bridget: Well, that's just very delicate subject over there.
Taylor: Oh, I get it. I get it. So she doesn't want to be the one to upset Ridge.
Bridget: No one wants to upset him after everything he's been through. My goodness! But no one wants to upset you either, Taylor. Your family deserves some peace, but I don't think this is the way to go about doing it. Ostracizing my brother from the company? That's not gonna change his behavior. It actually might make it worse. Lord knows what people do when the feel like they have nothing left to lose.
Taylor: You know what? I don't care about your brother, especially after what he did to my family.
Bridget: That--that's not exactly what I'm saying. Just--
Taylor: No, I can't help you, Bridget.
Bridget: I'm explaining that its wrong.
Taylor: No, listen, you shouldn't even be in this office right now. And I hope your brother gets a lot of help, because he is going to need it for the consequences that are coming.
Bridget: That's fine, but he's not beyond redemption. Taylor, what--what happened on the roof proves that. Rick saved his life. He grabbed Ridge by the arms and pulled him up. The animosity didn't matter. Whatever was between them, he let that go, and his instinct was to save him. That's what kind of man that my brother is.
Taylor: I still don't want him around Steffy, okay?? And if that means him not working at Forrester, that's the way it's going to be.
Ridge: Go on, Logan. Tell them.
Felicia: What is she doing?
Pam: Spit it out already.
Stephanie: Why doesn't she just say it?
Brooke: I'm sorry if I seem flustered. I-I know that you are waiting for some kind of information. And there's been a lot of rumors and speculation about different things going on here at Forrester. (Sighs) And I must say it's-s- (Sighs) these last three weeks, it's--it's been really hard. Personally, I've never experienced anything like it. But, um, I think that you will agree, when you see the results, it's really worth the wait. Our next collection is almost finished, and it is incredible, thanks to Eric, our brilliant designer and chairman of the board, Ridge Forrester, C.E.O. of the company, and the president of the company, my son Rick, and vice president... (Sighs) Thorne Forrester. And, of course, all of our wonderful employees. (Sighs) I know that this has been a trying year for the Forrester family. But we are making it through, and I believe... (Sighs) in adversity, you can find a-a crucible. And out of great strife can come great strength and unity--common purpose. Every challenge that we, I believe, is a chance for us to learn and to grow and to get stronger. So that is why it's taken us so long to get this collection out, because we want it to be absolutely perfect-- every gown, every stitch. In a month, you will be getting your invitations to come to the next showing, so I appreciate all of your patience, and believe me, it's going to be well worth it.
Katie: Okay. Thank you. Uh, any questions can be directed to my office. Thanks so much for coming.
Pam: Forrester Creations. Please hold. Forrester Creations. Please hold.
Owen: Look, nobody gets back in, and I want you to clear the parking lot.
Pam: Um, please hold. Oh, forget it. What in the world just happened?
Marcus: Look, the press was not happy.
Pam: Well, can you blame them? That was the big announcement? "Stay tuned"?
Owen: But there was something going on in there that didn't have anything to do with the business.
Marcus: Well, look, Thorne was supposed to be named president, but of course, it's still Rick.
Stephanie: What did you do?
Thorne: Nothing. She didn't do a damn thing.
Felicia: "The new line's gonna be incredible." Are you kidding me?
Eric: Everyone calm down.
Stephanie: You got to her, didn't you?
Eric: Brooke, we agreed Rick would leave.
Brooke: (Sighs) I-I couldn't do it.
Stephanie: Oh, so now what? Oh, . I know. You'll drag Ridge down the hall, have a little nooky, and he's supposed to then forget everything that this son of a bitch has done?
Steffy: Hey, Rick is a good president. He does not need to lose his job because Dad can't stand him around me. I should be the one to go.
Eric: No, Steffy. No.
Steffy: No, no, no. I want to go. I've already talked it over with Brooke. That's why she didn't say anything to the press. She didn't need to. Rick isn't leaving. I am.
Stephanie: You're not going anywhere.
Thorne: Rick was fired. Just because Brooke didn't announce it doesn't mean--
Brooke: We found a workable solution.
Stephanie: Workable for who? You? For him? Your husband is so angry, he can't even speak.
Steffy: Dad. Dad, please. You saw the press-- the way they were hammering Brooke. If Rick gets fired, they'll want to know why.
Katie: What Jarrett said about this being personal-- there could be rumors about Steffy and Rick already out there.
Stephanie: Oh, are you involved in this, too?
Brooke: This isn't a conspiracy, Stephanie.
Rick: My mother did what she thought was right. (Sighs) And she's not gonna regret it. Mom, listen..
Rick: You've given me a second chance. I'm not gonna let you down. I promise.
Thorne: You can't let them get away with this, Dad.
Brooke: Ridge, wait. Ridge!
(Telephone rings) (rings)
Taylor: Rick is out of control.
Bridget: (Sighs) It's not just Rick, Taylor. Uh, my mom is the one that fired him.
Taylor: Yeah, I know. And she finally made a right decision for once.
Bridget: (Sighs) She hates this.
Taylor: No. No. This is exactly what Rick needs. And I'm telling you, Ridge may forgive your mother, but he does have limits. And if she's smart, she isn't going to push them.
Brooke: Ridge, wait!
Ridge: I can't be here, Logan. I can't even look at you.
Brooke: You're angry and shocked. I'm sorry. (Sighs) We really need to talk about this.
Ridge: We already have. I said no, but you won't listen.
Brooke: I just bought us some time to really think about this. Nothing is set in stone.
Ridge: Well, apparently not. But I can't accept it, Brooke. I will never accept it. And you just don't seem to want to listen to that.
Ridge: No, no, no, no, no. Trust me. You don't want to do this now.
Brooke: (Sighs) Ridge, please. Try to understand!
Stephanie: You're still fired.
Eric: Stephanie, stop it.
Stephanie: You just watched Ridge storm out of here. He's not going to work with him under any circumstances.
Thorne: That goes for me, too.
Eric: All right, stop it, all of you.
Felicia: Oh, , God. You're glad that Brooke botched the announcement. You don't want Rick to leave.
Eric: No, I don't, and he's not now.
Stephanie: Don't you even look at her. Listen to me. These two people are wrong. Your leaving isn't going to change anything except to really upset your father. That isn't what you want.
Steffy: But I am the problem, so take me out of the picture.
Stephanie: No, no. This is so typical of him. You can't trust him.
Steffy: N-nobody tricked me into this. I knew that Dad was going to be upset.
Stephanie: Then why would you even suggest leaving the company?
Steffy: Because I love him.
Stephanie: You disappoint me. That you would let yourself be used this way.
Rick: Nobody is using her, Stephanie.
Stephanie: Against your own father.
Rick: No, that's a lie, and you know it.
Katie: Okay, why don't you go with me and let Eric and Brooke deal with this?
Thorne: There's nothing to deal with, Katie.
Felicia: Daddy, please. Go find Brooke. Let her see that this is possible.
Stephanie: I hope that's what your brother is doing right now-- showing her that this is absolutely impossible.
Taylor: (Sighs) So much for tough love.
Ridge: Rick's still president.
Taylor: Brooke couldn't do it.
Ridge: Who told you?
Taylor: The look on your face says it all.
Ridge: Dad was gonna handle the press. Then Brooke steps in and starts going on and on about the collection and family unity. And then she and Rick brought Steffy into it. Our daughter wanted to leave the company so that little Ricky could stay.
Taylor: Absolutely not.
Ridge: It was even Brooke's idea. But I think it's got Rick's fingerprints all over it.
Taylor: So she's helping them get closer? (Sighs)
Ridge: Well, I told her no. I'm not gonna let her make that sacrifice for that jerk. My daughter and my wife--- I told them both no.
Taylor: We have got to put an end to this, Ridge. That's all Rick is doing. He's just obsessed with hurting you. At--and look at what he's done. He has gone after Phoebe. He's gone after me. And now Steffy? We have got to stop this. He's already taken one daughter from us. We can't let him take another one.
Owen: Bridget. Hey.
Bridget: Oh, hey. Um, is it over, the press conference?
Owen: Oh, yeah.
Bridget: Well, what happened?
Owen: Well, nothing.
Owen: Yeah, I mean, your brother-- he's still on as president.
Owen: Yeah. Your mom rolled the dice, and I guess she just couldn't go through with it.
Bridget: I'm sure you're not too happy about it.
Owen: Look, it's no big deal. I mean, let's just say that it's not exactly the most popular decision around here.
Bridget: I didn't really think she could actually go through with firing him.
Owen: I mean, obviously, she couldn't.
Bridget: Oh, Owen, please. Try to understand. She's his mother. How could she live with herself if she did something like that?
Owen: Hey, listen. You know, I don't disagree with you. I wouldn't want to be in Brooke's position. I don't envy that.
Bridget: How was Ridge? He wasn't happy, I'm sure.
Owen: No. He stormed right out of his office.
Bridget: God, this is such a mess.
Owen: And your mom took off right after him, and, uh, I don't know what happened after that.
Bridget: I doubt it was very pretty.
Brooke: (Sighs) He'll come back. He has to come back. (Sighs) (Sighs) Where are you, Ridge? Where can you be?
Rick: Don't worry. Your dad and Stephanie are gonna be talking for hours. They're not even gonna know we're gone.
Steffy: Mmmm. I hope she's okay, though. Your mom, you know.
Rick: No, I know. She's gonna be fine.. She's gonna talk to your father, and they're gonna patch things up.
Steffy: Mm-hmm. You think so?
Rick: I know so.
Rick: Do you have any idea how optimistic I'm feeling right now?
Rick: Hey, I can't believe you were gonna take a leave of absence for me.
Steffy: Hey, you were gonna do a lot more for me.
Rick: Yeah, but your dad-- I really feel bad for him.
Steffy: You saved his life. Why can't he see you the way I do?
Rick: I'm kind of glad he doesn't. I mean, I really don't feel like kissing your father.
Steffy: Oh. (Laughs)
Rick: You, on the other hand, are a different story.
Steffy: (Squeals) (giggles)
Stephanie: They're gonna tear this family apart.
Taylor: And Brooke cajoled Steffy into helping her.
Stephanie: Her father's not going to let her leave the company to save that boy's career. But what I'm upset about i-is Eric. He was relieved. He was actually pleased that Brooke did a flip-flop, changed her mind. I mean, it's just-- oh, God-- knowing what it would do to Ridge.
Taylor: Well, Ridge is more upset about Steffy.
Stephanie: Well, he should be, and you should be, too. That boy's got her wrapped right around his little finger-- wanting to leave the company, quit her job. At next? Is he gonna run away with her?
Taylor: Don't even say that.
Stephanie: Well, I think we have to be realistic, and I think we have to try and figure out where this thing is going.
Taylor: No...we are. Ridge and I are completely in agreement about this.
Stephanie: Brooke may have made a big mistake here. That marriage could end up on the rocks.
Taylor: Ridge came to me because I'm Steffy's mother.
Stephanie: He came to you because he can depend on you. He can't depend on Brooke. It's been a long time coming, Brooke, I think, has finally lost his trust.
Ridge: I don't want to talk.
Brooke: (Sighs) We need to. Please.. the way you looked at me earlier-- it scared me. You didn't look at me as your wife, the woman that you love. You looked at me as an accomplice of Rick's. Now I know that you were thinking about your daughters, and you can't help but think about them when you see Rick. You're still grieving for Phoebe.
Brooke: And every time I say his name or try to defend him, it takes you right back there to that horrible night. We just need to find a way to get you past that, and that's all that I was trying to do. That's all I wanted to accomplish. I was trying to find a place where we could all come together and start to heal.
Ridge: You encouraged my daughter to defy me, to leave the company so he could stay.
Brooke: A temporary leave of absence.
Ridge: Until when? Until you just wear me down, and I do not accept her hanging around him?
Brooke: We need to find a way to--to forgive.
Ridge: No, Brooke, we don't.
Brooke: Then you're not ready.
Ridge: What if I'm never ready? What then? Logan, you know what I feel about you. But what you did today-- (sighs)
Brooke: Ridge, I couldn't turn my back on my son.
Ridge: You gave your loyalty to a man that has given me more pain than I've ever known in my life, who's done everything in his power to tear us apart, to rip our family to shreds. He is your priority.
Brooke: No, he is my responsibility. I gave birth to him. I raised him.
Ridge: Why can't you see what Rick is doing to us? Why?
Brooke: Ridge, Rick can't do anything to us unless we let him. What is it that we said to each other the day that we got married? That we weren't going to let anything come between us ever again.
Ridge: Yeah, well.
Brooke: You can't control your feelings for Rick. Well, neither can I, because he is my flesh and blood. And you-- you are the love of my life. We want it to be so simple, but it can't be, because he is my son, and you are my husband. I mean, look at me. I'm just a woman torn apart here by her loyalties, a woman who so desperately wants you to understand. I want you to love me. (Sobs) I want you to love me the same way that I love you-- more than life itself. Can you do that? Can you find a way to do that?
