(Knock on door)
Rick: Hey, Mom.
Brooke: Rick. (Sighs)
Rick: I, uh, I called the office. They said you hadn't been in all day. Did you get in a fight, uh, with "Mr. Big Shot" again? Is that what happened?
Rick: Here, I brought you something to cheer you up.
Brooke: Oh, your wedding announcements.
Rick: Yeah, and a picture for the paper, too.
Brooke: (Sighs) Look at you. You both look so happy.
Rick: It's just a shame that not everybody wants to see it. Is that what you and Ridge were fighting about?
Brooke: We're fine. Ridge did say that we would work through this, and the only way that we can do that is if he accepts you and Steffy. He has to.
Ridge: I will never accept our daughter with Rick.
Taylor: Brooke has to understand that now.
Ridge: Steffy is our daughter, Taylor. It's our job to protect her. I'm not gonna lose her to Rick. We're gonna get her away from him, with or without Brooke’s help.
Donna: The countdown begins.
Eric: (Chuckles) Yeah, I left Bridget a message. I wished her good luck today.
Donna: The press is going crazy about this big announcement.
Eric: I can't imagine how they're gonna react when they find out that Madame X is my daughter.
Donna: Well, they won't be as shocked as you were during Jackie M.'s last showing when all of your designs were on their runway.
Eric: Uh, no. No, we will not be blindsided like that again, not today.
Nick: Listen, I think we should save the announcement about Madame X till the end of this whole deal. I want this collection judged on its own merit. It's what's best for us and Bridget.
Stephanie: Oh, I agree.
Nick: Okay, good. Good.
Nick: What are you doing? You couldn't even get out of bed yesterday.
Jackie: Oh, I'm feeling so much better-- thank you, darling-- except for this tingling in my toes.
Nick: Um, everyone's attention, please. (Claps hands) Listen, now I need everyone on their game today. Today, we're launching a new era in Los Angeles fashion. Out with the Forrester era. Jackie M. Designs has been reinvigorated with Stephanie and Bridget on our team. We are gonna send excitement and energy into the fashion world, and we start today.
Rick: You're on the right side, Mom.
Brooke: No. (Sighs) I'm not. I'm caught in the middle, and so is Ridge-- between his feelings for me and his feelings for you.
Rick: And where do Steffy's feelings rank in the grand scheme of things?
Brooke: He's afraid for her. You have to remember how this relationship started.
Rick: What Steffy and I feel for each other is all that matters to us, Mom. Look, the people trying to break us up, like Stephanie and Taylor and Ridge-- they're not succeeding, and they never will.
Ridge: Steffy has got to see the real Rick.
Taylor: How are you gonna make that happen?
Ridge: Somehow get him to shoot his mouth off. That way, everyone can hear what I hear.
Taylor: Do you think that would be enough for her to want to leave him?
Ridge: Oh, the things he says-- it's obvious-- obvious that he's using her, and she's not gonna tolerate that. But first, we gotta get him to expose himself. I've got the computer all set up. All we have to do is press one button, and the internal microphone will pick up everything in the room.
Taylor: So you just get Rick to show his true colors.
Eric: Oh, good. Good, you're here. The preview is just about to start.
Steffy: Yeah, everyone's talking about this big announcement.
Donna: Well, maybe we should invite Thorne and Felicia.
Eric: Oh, I did invite them. They declined.
Steffy: I think they're still mad at you for firing Grandmother.
Donna: Well, Stephanie brought it on herself.
Eric: Look, your grandmother was a great asset to me for a very, very long time. It wasn't an easy decision for me to let her go.
Donna: But it was the right one. Stephanie didn't make this company the success it is. Eric did.
Steffy: All right. Let's watch it then.
Jackie: Thank you!
Jackie: Welcome. Welcome, everybody. It is so nice to see so many familiar faces here today. Oh, and some new ones, too. You're going to be seeing some new faces up here, as well, today. But first, I invite you to feast your eyes on the work of Jackie M.'s latest sensation, Madame X.
Jackie: Oh, Nicky, please smile, will you? This is the sound of money in the bank.
(Applause) (Indistinct conversations)
Stephanie: (Speaks indistinctly)
(Camera shutters clicking)
Eric: Beautiful. Just beautiful. Look at that.
Steffy: Wow, this Madame X character really knows her stuff.
Eric: Yes, she does.
Eric: Listen to that reaction.
Steffy: And you're happy about this?
Eric: Yeah, I'm proud. I'm very proud.
Stephanie: Oh, it was just great. You were beautiful. You were wonderful. You just looked elegant.
Clarke: So you think "Dad" Forrester is watching?
Stephanie: Oh, I sure hope so. (Chuckles)
Jackie: Thank you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Jackie: (Laughs) No, thank you, all. But please, save some of your applause for the woman who deserves it, the genius behind this magnificent collection. I am so proud to bring Madame X out of the shadows and into the spotlight. Our mystery designer is Bridget Forrester!
Eric: That's my girl.
Woman: Fabulous! Fabulous!
Jackie: Thank you. Thank you. Oh, my. Jackie M. Designs-- well, we're so happy. We are so proud to have Eric Forrester’s daughter here with us. But, ladies and gentlemen, that is not the only surprise that we have in store for you today.
Jarrett: What could top a Forrester at Jackie M.?
Jackie: How about two Forresters?
Eric: Two Forresters? What is she talking about?
Brooke: You won't let this come between us, Ridge. I trust you. I know you'll do what's best for this family. (Footsteps approach)
Rick: Save the date.
Ridge: I don't need a reminder.
Rick: (Laughs) You can go ahead and rip that up. I have hundreds of those things. Ridge, this wedding is going to happen. You getting all worked up-- it's not gonna affect anything, except maybe your relationships with my mom and Steffy, so don't do this to yourself. In fact, I'm already looking forward to the honeymoon. And you know Steffy's wedding dress, the one you made for her? It's really hot, but I think it's gonna look even better on the floor.
Taylor: You shut your mouth. Don't you ever talk about my daughter like that.
Rick: Taylor, hey. I'm marrying your daughter, Taylor. You had your chance, and you threw it in my face. So I guess your loss is Steffy's gain. I know how much you two despise me, but you're just gonna have to deal with that, 'cause I'm not going anywhere.
Steffy: Another Forrester?
Eric: That's not possible. It's some kind of a gimmick.
Nick: Well, here we go.
Clarke: This place is gonna go nuts.
Owen: Eric better be sitting down.
Jarrett: Two Forresters? What does that mean?
Jackie: It means that Jackie M. Designs is the destination for the most talented people in this industry. The person that's about to come out onto this stage knows more about this business than, well, anybody in this business. Class, knowledge, ideas-- everything that you need to turn this band of upstarts into L.A.'s premier fashion house. "Who can that be?" You ask, "Who can do that?"
Eric: No one.
Jackie: Who can that be? Who can do that? The Grande Dame of L.A. fashion.
Audience: (Murmuring) (Applause)
Jackie: Stephanie Forrester, ladies and gentlemen!
Stephanie: Thank you. Thank you very much. Um, thank you, Jackie, for that very gracious introduction, and--and Bridget for this beautiful preview of her collection. Is she a revelation, or what? (Laughs)
Stephanie: Absolutely. Please, sit down. Sit down. Surprised? (Laughs)
Stephanie: Well, let me tell you. Uh, you are no more surprised than I am, um, that I'm here. Uh, some of you may have heard that I recently exited, uh, Forrester Creations
because some people there thought that I was no longer capable of making a meaningful contribution. You know, that the fashion parade had passed me by. Well, I didn't agree with that, and luckily for me, neither did Nick and Jackie Marone. They offered me a challenge, and I accepted it. And I am here today to offer a challenge to all of the young, hot, undiscovered designers in this country that want to work. Jackie M. is open for business, so come on down, and show us what you got, because we are looking for talent, talent with a capital "T." Now you've just had a preview of Bridget’s glorious collection. That is the future of fashion, and we are going to be all about innovation. We want fresh ideas, fresh faces, because we know that's what's going to make Jackie M. the fashion house of Los Angeles, if not the entire country. Ladies and gentlemen, the new Jackie M. is open for business.
Stephanie: Eat your heart out, honey bear.
Donna: Eric, are you okay?
Eric: No! No, I'm not! Stephanie and Jackie? What the hell is she doing?
Brooke: Thank you so much for coming. I really appreciate it.
Owen: Congratulations, Madame X. You knocked 'em dead.
Bridget: Only it hasn't totally sunk in yet.
Owen: Well, you'd better get used to it, 'cause you're a hit.
Steffy: Uh, I should go warn Katie. Stephanie and Bridget at Jackie M.? The press are gonna be all over us.
Donna: Good idea.
Donna: Eric, it's just a gimmick. Look, Stephanie is just trying to get a reaction. I mean, y-yes, she knows this business, but she is not a miracle worker. Look, there is no way that that band of misfits over there are-- are ever going to be a threat to Forrester Creations.
Woman: So cool.
Jackie: Look out, Forrester. Here we come.
Owen: Mnh-mnh. We've already arrived.
Jackie: (Laughs) Oh, didn't Bridget’s designs just look beautiful?
Owen: They were gorgeous, but none of them look as beautiful as you do right now.
Bridget: Stephanie... (Sighs) I wish you hadn't said that about my father. You made it seem like there was some sort of a vendetta, and there's not.
Stephanie: Bridget, Bridget, tonight is all about you and all that glorious collection of yours. Come on.
Clarke: Did you see the crowd out there? There's a lot of big names. And, Stephanie, that must be your doing, because Jackie M.'s done very well, but we've never been able to reel in big hitters like this.
Stephanie: Well, I made a few calls.
Nick: Nice timing.
Stephanie: Thank you, Nick. Thank you very much.
Nick: Where have you been?
Jackie: Um, oh, I got pinned down, darling.
Bridget: There he is. Owen.
Jackie: I couldn't tear myself away.
Clarke: Ah. All right, the booze is here. We need some glasses.
Owen: Booze. Here.
Nick: Thank you. Bring those right in here. Everybody, grab a glass.
Clarke: Here we go.
Nick: Here we go. Put 'em in here. Right in the middle, right here, right here.
Bridget: Oh, whoa.
Nick: I'm gonna make a toast to our Forresters--that would be Bridget and Stephanie-- for your vision, for your direction and the true sense of purpose that you have brought to Jackie M.
Stephanie: To the new Jackie M.
Bridget: To the future.
Stephanie: To the future.
Nick: To the future.
Jackie: To the future.
Stephanie: We did much better than I expected. This is really good.
Nick: Mmm. You're pretty good. Very, very, very good today.
Ridge: I want Rick out of Steffy's life right now.
Taylor: Tell me you recorded that.
Ridge: I didn’t.
Ridge: Don't worry. He always talks like that.
Taylor: My god, the way he talked about Steffy, it was horrible.
Ridge: It's gonna devastate her.
Taylor: Well, we just have to get another opportunity. We can't miss it.
Ridge: Don't worry, we won’t.
Taylor: When Steffy hears the way he talks about her...
Ridge: It's gonna waste her completely.
Taylor: Yeah, but she'll get rid of him. She won't put up with it.
Ridge: If I provoke him--
Taylor: Yeah, just do it very subtly. I know you know how to push the right buttons.
Ridge: What do you want?
Rick: I'm not done with you yet.
Taylor: Well, hey, don't hold back on my account.
Ridge: Uh, why don't you leave us, Taylor? I think Ricky boy wants to, uh, have a little talk. Maybe a little man-to-man talk, huh? Is that what you're going after?
Ridge: All right... (Sighs) I'm all yours. What's on your mind, Ricky boy?
Rick: Oh, nothing much, really. I just came here to give you these designs and to make you squirm a little bit more. It's kind of becoming my favorite pastime.
Ridge: You got something to say, say it. I'm all ears.
Rick: I kind of feel bad for you. I mean, I've got your little girl wrapped around my finger, and it's eating you alive. There's just nothing you can do, kind of like there was nothing I could do when I was a kid growing up and you were hurting my mom over and over again, making her life a living hell. It's payback time, Ridge. It's time that you know how it feels, how I felt, watching someone I loved get tortured endlessly by a man who had no idea who in hell who he wanted to be with. Do you think your daughter would like a little torture, a little "naughty" torture in the bedroom, hmm? What do you think? I think it would drive her wild. Do you, too?
Ridge: Still that angry little boy, huh?
Rick: Oh, Ridge, this has nothing to do with anger. This is way beyond anger. I hate you. I hate you, and I have never hated anybody in my entire life.
Ridge: And you want to get back at me?
Rick: No, I want to put you in a psychological trap, like the one I was in when I was a kid and the one you're in right now.
Ridge: Steffy's gonna see right through you.
Rick: Oh, no, she won’t. Steffy is not your little girl anymore. I own her. Do you hear what I'm saying to you, Ridge? I own her. And there's not a damn thing you can do to change that.
Ridge: Keep talking, Rick.
Rick: Oh, I will. You ain't heard nothing yet.
