Brooke: What did you just say?
Taylor: You heard me. You and Ridge are not married.
Brooke: (Scoffs) Have you completely lost your mind?
Taylor: No, but the writing's on the wall.
Brooke: Oh, Ridge, perfect timing to hear Taylorís latest invention. On top of everything else, she's saying that we're not married. (Sighs)
Ridge: Well, our ceremony at the beach was kind of unorthodox, yeah, but we went before a judge downtown at the city hall and made it all legal.
Taylor: Yes, you may have done all of that, but you're still not married.
Rick: I fully recognize that I've been a real jerk lately.
Steffy: That's one word I'd use.
Rick: Go ahead. You can call me every name in the book. I will happily accept it. I mean, after everything I've done? Think about it. Let's review, shall we? We've stolen the designs from my own company, and I gave them to Jackie M. I attempted to join the army. I wanted to get married on Point Dume, knowing how much it would make your father angry, and then there was the whole recording incident. That was the worst of them all. It's just proven to me that I'm not worthy of you, and I want you to know that I-- that I understand why you can't be with me.
Steffy: Good. I'm glad you finally get it.
Rick: I get it in a big way, Steffy.
Steffy: Yeah, he said for the thousandth time.
Rick: (Sighs) Look, I-I'm trying to tell you that I'm not gonna be around to bother you anymore. I'm joining a monastery.
Steffy: No way.
Steffy: Are you serious?
Rick: I need spirituality in my life. Think about it. I've ruined every relationship that's ever meant anything to me in my life, and from now on, it's gonna be me and the man upstairs.
Steffy: (Laughs) Okay, you've had some bonehead ideas, but I think this one takes the cake.
Rick: I just figured that if I can't have you, then I don't want anybody. So I'm gonna take a vow of celibacy.
Steffy: We broke up, but your life isn't over. You can't just run off and join the monastery.
Rick: You're really gullible, you know that? (Chuckles)
Steffy: Oh, shut up. Very funny. Very, very funny. (Chuckles)
Ridge: Doc, you're not making sense here.
Brooke: We're not married?
Taylor: This fairy-tale marriage you've been lording over my head for the last few minutes is not legit.
Brooke: You don't think it's legit. Oh, I see. You don't think our marriage is real because I'm not worthy for Ridge, regardless of the vows we took. Isn't that right, Taylor?
Taylor: Yes, all of that is absolutely true. You're not worthy of Ridge, and you never will be.
Stephanie: Uh, you're sounding a little insecure these days, Brooke.
Brooke: Oh, for God's sakes, just stay out of it.
Ridge: Okay, I've heard enough.
Ridge: Logan, will you please meet me in my office? I want to talk to you privately. Come on.
Brooke: (Sighs) How dare you two question my marriage? I could give a damn whether you accept it or not, because the only opinion that matters here is Ridge's. He is my husband, and we're going to be together now and forever, so just back off.
Rick: See? I made you laugh. (Chuckles) I am good for you.
Steffy: You join the monastery? That's enough to make anyone laugh. (Chuckles)
Rick: I can lighten the mood. That's what I'm trying to tell you.
Steffy: Yeah, it's been tense, but what else is new?
Rick: It's about to get a whole lot worse. Your parents are pushing hard to have Thomas come on board here at Forrester. My mom's opposed to it. So am I.
Steffy: Wait, no. This would be such a great thing for my brother.
Rick: Yeah, but horrible for me. Steffy, your brother is a live wire. He tried to kill me twice. What happens if he flies off the handle again?
Steffy: No, no, no. I have spent a lot of time with him since he's been back home, and he's doing a lot better. James has helped him deal with his issues.
Rick: That may be good enough for you, but I can't have him anywhere near me.
Steffy: He has as much right to be here as you do. And he is a Forrester. He deserves the opportunity to work alongside his father. And it would mean so much to my dad. Come on, Rick, just--just give him a chance.
Rick: All right. If it means that much to you, okay.
Steffy: Thank you. Thank you. I-I am so grateful, and I-I know you're doing this for me, but, um, this doesn't change anything between us.
Rick: No, I'm not-- I'm not expecting anything in return. I--
Rick: If it's gonna make that much of a difference in your life, then I'll go along with it. My mom is a different story, though. She's-- she's totally against it.
Steffy: Well, you know if you wanted to, you could-- you could change her mind.
Stephanie: What were you thinking?
Taylor: I couldn't handle it anymore.
Stephanie: You're not supposed to say anything about the marriage.
Taylor: Oh, my God, that haughty attitude she has. She acts like Ridge is a personal possession.
Stephanie: Wait a minute, Taylor--Taylor, we had a plan, and you're supposed to stick to it.
Taylor: No, I-I-I'm not waiting. I have no more patience with her--zero!
Stephanie: Stop it. If they put two and two together about what you just said, then what's to stop them from going to city hall, getting a new license and making it all legal?
Taylor: Stephanie. Stephanie, their relationship is going to fall apart. It is in serious trouble right now. I can feel it. I know it.
Brooke: God, I can't believe the gall of that woman.
Ridge: Do not let Taylor get to you.
Brooke: You heard what she said, Ridge. She claimed that our marriage wasn't real. How delusional is that? And why did you just stand there doing nothing?
Ridge: Logan, that's not the issue. We both know our marriage is real. It's not worth getting all worked up about.
Brooke: I can't believe that Stephanie and Taylor are still trying to undermine our marriage.
Ridge: I know it's frustrating, but we have a chance here to prove that if we're united as a couple, as a family, we can prove them wrong, Logan, that you and I can get through things that other couples may not be able to.
Brooke: If you're referring to Thomas working here, I won't allow it.
Ridge: Logan, this is very important to me.
Brooke: I know. I do understand that. And I'm sorry about this whole situation, but we can't change things, Ridge.
Ridge: I have a chance to work side by side with my own son. You of all people should know how important that would be to a parent.
Brooke: I do, but he tried to kill my son. And what if he tries that again?
Ridge: There's no way I'd put Rick in harm's way, even in spite of everything he's done to my family.
Brooke: I don't think that you would intentionally do that. I-I'm just not entirely convinced of Thomas' stability.
Ridge: He's been in months of therapy. James would not have signed off on it if he felt he wasn't psychologically okay.
Brooke: No. (Sighs) No, Rick is not comfortable with it, and I'm not comfortable with it. I'm not gonna risk Thomas hurting my son again.
Rick: Um, Mom, don't worry about it. I'm cool with it.
Brooke: Honey, I'm... (Sighs) really not in the mood to play your game.
Rick: No, no. I'm totally serious. I'm not playing games. You can tell Tommy he can start whenever he wants.
Brooke: What? Why this change of heart?
Rick: Well, I'm doing it for Steffy.
Steffy: Yo, Thomas, it's me. I think I may have some good news for you. Call me back. Bye.
Rick: Make me the happiest guy in the entire world... and say that you'll be my wife.
Steffy: (Exhales deeply)
Rick: Steffy, I am so in love with you. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Be my wife.
Steffy: (Sighs) (Exhales deeply)
Ridge: You're doing this for Steffy?
Rick: Yeah, absolutely. I just spoke to Steffy, and she told me how important it would be for her to have her brother working here, and I decided, hey, I'm gonna go along with that for her.
Ridge: How noble of you.
Brooke: Are you sure about this, honey?
Ridge: Yeah, are you sure about this, Ricky? 'Cause it kind of smells a little bit like another one of your ploys...
Ridge: To weasel your way back into Steffy's life.
Rick: It's not that. I swear.
Ridge: Good, because that's never gonna happen.
Rick: Ridge, it's over between us, okay? I told her I would stay away from her. Look, she-- she even gave me back her ring. This is a chance for me to do something positive for Steffy after everything I've done to her. I want to make it up to her, and Dad, too. Think about it. Dad has stood up for me. It's the least I could do. And this is Dad's company. I say that we respect his decision.
Brooke: Eric doesn't know that Thomas is the one who attacked you.
Rick: I know that. But I've been told that Thomas is no longer a threat to me, that James worked his head-shrinking magic, and Thomas is okay now. Think about it. What's the worst that can happen, right? I mean, he slips a little arsenic in my coffee? He tries to blow me up again? I mean, it wouldn't be that much of a loss, would it, Ridge?
Stephanie: Wait. Wait. Where are you going?
Taylor: Stephanie, would you please get out of my way? Come on.
Pam: I'm dyin' out here.
Stephanie: No. Shh! Close the door.
Pam: The--the suspense is killing me. Did you stick it to her? Did you tell Brooke about the phony marriage?
Taylor: I'm trying to.
Stephanie: And I am trying to stop her.
Pam: Why? Isn't it time that we knock the little princess off her little throne?
Stephanie: No, it isnít. Look, we have a plan, thanks to you, and we're supposed to stick to it.
Pam: It is the best typo I ever made.
Taylor: I am at my breaking point, okay? Uh, Ridge and I went in the office, and we-- we had this great idea to have Thomas come in and start working at Forrester Creations.
Stephanie: It is. It's a-- it's a wonderful idea.
Taylor: Well, yeah, Eric thought so, but Rick and Brooke? No way.
Stephanie: What right has that little son of a bitch to have an opinion about anything around here?
Taylor: You know what Brooke did? She sided with her son.
Brooke: I'm very proud of Rick. (Sighs) He didn't have to do this.
Ridge: Since when does Rick call the shots around here?
Brooke: Under the circumstances...
Ridge: Logan, this is a family business. Thomas is my son. He has every right to work here.
Brooke: Then you should be happy.
Ridge: I just don't like how Rickís maneuvering his way through this.
Brooke: He was very generous not to fight it.
Ridge: He wasn't doing it out of the graciousness of his heart. He has an ulterior motive. He just wants to make himself look good for Steffy.
Brooke: Oh, that's why he's doing it?
Ridge: Yes, that's why he's doing it. God, I wish you could see him the way I do.
Brooke: Well, he's my child. I guess we're a little partial to our children, aren't we?
Brooke: You're no exception, Ridge. I know that Rick has done things for you not to trust him, but it's over between Steffy and Rick. She gave the ring back. So let's not let this tension affect our marriage.
Ridge: I still don't trust him. I don't think I ever will.
Brooke: Oh, God. I hate it when we do this. I-I-I feel like we're on opposite sides, and we always seem to be arguing about something.
Ridge: Not something. Your son.
Brooke: You know what the worst part is? When we argue about this, Stephanie and Taylor are right about our marriage. We can't allow that to happen. We fought too hard to be together. You are my destiny. And I'm not gonna listen to Stephanie or Taylor or anybody else for that matter. I just hope you feel the same way, too.
Rick: Hey. Sorry. Got your cell phone on you?
Steffy: Yeah, why?
Rick: Well, I just figured you might want to tell your brother some good news.
Steffy: I'll be right back. Hey, is this another one of your pranks?
Rick: Nope. Your brother is now officially the newest member of Forrester Creations.
Steffy: Wait. You got your mom to agree?
Rick: I just told her that that's what my father wanted. And it's true. He said that he wanted to have Thomas on board.
Rick: And I told my mother we need to respect his decision.
Steffy: Wow, thank-- thank you. Thank--this is incredible.
Rick: I just-- I need--I need to warn you. Your father thinks that I'm still manipulating things and I have something up my sleeve, and that's not the case. I genuinely want to make up for all the pain that I've caused you.
Steffy: Look, I appreciate what you're doing for my brother.
Stephanie: You've got to put a lid on this anger with Brooke.
Taylor: That's not going to be very easy, especially when it comes to Brooke getting in the way of my son's future.
Stephanie: Honey, nothing and no one is going to stop Thomas from getting what he deserves. I promise you.
Pam: Yeah, we need all the Forresters we can get around here, too. Who else is gonna fight the curse of the Logans?
Steffy: Hey. Mom, I'm so glad to see you. We need to take Thomas out and celebrate.
Taylor: No, this is not exactly a done deal.
Steffy: Yes, it is. Rick talked Brooke into it. It's amazing, huh?
Taylor: What? Wha-- (Laughs) Well, I'm sure Thomas must be thrilled, but why would Ri-- Rick just suddenly change his mind like this? Sweetheart, is he playing you?
Steffy: He couldn't if he tried. It is so over between us. I gave him back his ring.
Taylor: Oh, my God. I'm so proud of you.
Taylor: I'm so proud of you.
Ridge: I don't like arguing any more than you do. But your son just seems to be able to push all my buttons.
Brooke: He just reached out to you, Ridge. He showed you compassion and forgiveness by agreeing to have Thomas work here.
Ridge: He wasn't reaching out to me, Brooke. He was reaching out to Steffy, in his usual sneaky way, too. I don't want him talking to her. I don't want him even looking in her direction. And if he touches her, I'm not--
Brooke: Donít. Please don't go there. Rick has assured me that there's nothing going on between Steffy and him anymore. You have to accept that. You just have to accept that and move on.
Ridge: I don't know how to do that.
Brooke: (Sighs) Let me show you.
Stephanie: I'm happy that Tom is going to be here working with the family, but I am not happy that Rick had a hand in it.
Taylor: (Sighs) You know, I'm--I'm not buying any of this "taking the high road" stuff. I know exactly what he's doing. He's acting like a good guy, and just when everybody drops their guard, then he'll start prowling around again, because that's what pathological predators do.
Pam: Look, Taylor, don't worry. I'm here. I'll keep my eyes wide open, the old ears perked. Rick tries any funny business, I'll kill him. (Whispers) I'm kidding.
Taylor: I just don't want Steffy to be in any kind of danger, okay, Stephanie? That's it.
Stephanie: Honey, everything's going to work out. Ridge is going to come to his senses, and he's going to realize he belongs with you.
Brooke: Oh, I love you so much. I want to be with you forever. Mm.
Stephanie: Everything is calm now, but I promise you, all hell is gonna break loose because of Rick.
Stephanie: Rick is going to push them over the edge.
Brooke: Oh. Oh, Ridge.
Stephanie: When that happens, that's when you go to Ridge and you say, "the marriage isn't legal."
