Bridget: Uh, hi.
Nick: Hi yourself.
Bridget: Am I on time?
Nick: On time for what?
Bridget: For the meeting.
Nick: Yeah. Yeah, sure.
Bridget: (Laughs) You know, no one else is here.
Nick: Oh, well, you might be a little bit early.
Bridget: I'll come back.
Nick: No, no, no. Please stay.
Bridget: This is weird, Nick.
Nick: How do you like the office, huh?
Bridget: I mean, it's a--it's a beautiful space.
Nick: Well, it's something new and fresh to keep the juices flowing.
Bridget: I hadn't seen a problem there.
Nick: I meant everything I said to you last night.
Bridget: I know your apology came from your heart.
Nick: If I overstepped, it wasn't intentional. I'm sorry.
Bridget: Nick, you should know that I really appreciate what you were trying to say last night.
Clarke: Ooh, look at this place. (Chuckles) You know, you got to be related to Jackie to score digs like this.
Stephanie: Good morning. So where's your mom?
Nick: Later than you are.
Stephanie: Oh, I'm never late. Let's get started.
Bridget: Oh, I'll buzz her.
Stephanie: Oh, okay. Look, uh, Karen Spencer is still in town, so I have a meeting with her.
Nick: Meeting about what?
Stephanie: Well, they are in the media business. We have something to say, and they'll get it heard.
Nick: We have something to say?
Stephanie: Of course we do. That's why I called the meeting. I'm going to pitch to them a thought. Um, I want to do a series of articles in the "Eye on Fashion."
Bridget: Articles on Jackie M.?
Nick: Is there a deal in place here that I don't know about?
Stephanie: No. That's what I'm going to pitch today, and I'm hoping for an enthusiastic response.
Nick: All corporate statements are supposed to go through my mother. Those are the rules, Stephanie.
Stephanie: Oh. Well, if your mother wants to have a say on what goes on around here, I think she has to show up for work, Nick. Karen is expecting me. I don't want to be late.
Nick: She didn't answer her phone.
Bridget: I'll go find her.
Nick: AWOL again. This is getting to be a bad habit.
Owen: Clarke, I told you to stop that.
Jackie: Oh, your tush is obviously gaining quite a reputation.
Owen: Ooh, Jackie. Oof, it's you.
Jackie: (Chuckles) What, do you think you're safe now?
Owen: I don't know. I mean, alone in a room with a wild cougar. I don't think so.
Jackie: I don't like the cougar. Cougars get shot.
Jackie: House cats get the milk.
Jackie: (Meows) (chuckles)
Owen: Ooh, I like that.
(Knocking on door)
Bridget: Jackie, it's, uh, it's me. Are you in there?
Owen: Oh, my God. It's locked, right?
Jackie: (Clears throat)
Bridget: Did you forget about the meeting?
Jackie: Oh, the meeting. Oh, my God, time flies. Quick. Nick's office, pronto. (Sighs)
Owen: Me, too?
Jackie: (Scoffs) You're my chief of staff. I need someone to watch my flank.
Clarke: It's provocative.
Nick: It's been done.
Clarke: (Chuckles) Not like this. Monsieur X, hmm?
Jackie: Oh, my God. Is this a fancy dress meeting? Shall I go and get my catsuit?
Nick: You stay put. I'm gettin' tired of your disappearing act.
Jackie: Well, excuse me, but if Stephanie doesn't bother to turn up for her own meetings, why should I?
Nick: Stephanie's been here and gone. She went to meet with Karen Spencer.
Woman: Hello, Mrs. Forrester.
Stephanie: Hi. Um, Karen Spencer is expecting me.
Woman: Right this way. You'll be meeting with Bill Spencer today.
Stephanie: Bill Spencer?
Bill: In the flesh.
Stephanie: Bill Jr.
Stephanie: Of course. I can't believe that this is the first time in all of these years that I've actually met you.
Bill: Have a seat. My father and I didn't socialize together. Strictly business with us.
Stephanie: I know. You didn't care for him very much.
Bill: Didn't know him that well, nor did my mother, for that matter.
Stephanie: He may not have raised you, but he certainly took good care of you, and look. Here you have ended up with 50% of his company.
Bill: (Chuckles) It wasn't a gift. I earned it.
Stephanie: I know. He made you and Karen work your way up.
Bill: Not a philosophy your ex-husband subscribes to, from what I hear.
Stephanie: I see your father told you all about that.
Bill: He wasn't shy about expressing his disapproval.
Stephanie: No. But then, neither am I.
Bill: Yes, I get that about you. Is that what brings you by, Stephanie? You wanted to give my sister your two cents on how this company should be run?
Stephanie: (Laughs) Far be it for me to do that. No, actually, I was coming to see Karen, because I was going to ask a favor of her.
Bill: Well, as luck would have it, she was called back home. I'm taking her meetings. How can I be of service?
Stephanie: You already know of my circumstances at, um, Forrester Creations. Um, as luck would have it, and I hope it's luck, I've gone into business, a partnership with the Marone family at Jackie M. Designs, and naturally, we're looking for publicity. And I was hoping... (sighs) thinking that you might be interested, based on my experiences in the business, that you would be willing to run a series of articles that I've written and put them in the, uh, "Eye on Fashion" magazine.
Bill: You're angry, looking for payback. You won't find it here.
Stephanie: Well, that's one way of looking at it. (Laughs) On the other hand, I'd like to think that I'm offering you an opportunity. I think people are going to be interested in what I have to say, and they'll hear it one way or the other. The question is are you smart enough to profit from it?
Jackie: Thank you very much, ladies. You were really lovely. You can tell the sewers there's no changes. Everything's perfect. Thank you. I don't-- (scoffs) you could at least pretend to be interested.
Nick: You know what interests me lately? You.
Nick: Where's your head been, hmm? What is going on with you?
Owen: You have time for an apology?
Bridget: Is this about last night?
Owen: Look, you were-- you were uncomfortable.
Bridget: Oh, Owen, that-- (sighs) that's not your fault. You were charming and--and delciou-- dinner. Dinner was delicious.
Owen: Look, I just-- I don't want you to think that I was expecting anything more.
Bridget: No, you just are curious how messed up I really am.
Owen: No, I don't think that at all.
Bridget: You don't?
Owen: No. I-I mean, I think that you're a little confused as to what you really want.
Bridget: Nick was here when I came back after our date last night, and we--we talked.
Owen: Well, you got a lot of history there.
Bridget: Yeah, you know, I'm just sorting it out-- history, no history.
Owen: A bit of the past becoming the present?
Bridget: You know, we say that, but it never really happens. You don't get do-overs in life.
Owen: A do-over. Is that--is that what you want? Do you want a do-over? (Sighs) Look, come on Bridget, you know what? I'm gonna give you a little straight talk right now. You got your head spinnin' all over the place for this-- this man who messed up his marriage to you not once, but twice, and now the guy is engaged to your aunt. Come on. You have got to stop putting everything on yourself and thinking about yourself as messed up and broken. I mean, come on. You have been through a lot, and I have asked around, and you've been involved with some pretty big losers.
Bridget: I know how to pick 'em.
Owen: Well, you need to pick somebody else, and stop crossing your fingers and hoping that this time around that they're gonna treat you better. You've got to demand it.
Stephanie: Well? What do you think? Yes or no?
Stephanie: You like it.
Bill: My readers will, too.
Stephanie: So you're gonna publish it?
Bill: I will.
Bill: If you accept my proposal. The articles are good. You really put it out there. I like that. I want you to do more of it. We'll call them "The Logan Chronicles," use them to generate interest, create a temporary bump in magazine sales, but I'm about the big picture. Subscriptions are down. Advertising's falling. The future, Stephanie, is new media.
Stephanie: The internet.
Bill: Yes. Like you, Spencer Publications is looking to branch out. I want to get us away from that tired, old-school image. It really isn't me.
Stephanie: Really? How?
Bill: A blog. No. No, better yet, a webcast. Put yourself out there on the internet. Let your audience see and hear what you have to say, every captivating word. I'll plug you right into our "Eye on Fashion" website. Bang! It's explosive. You know that. Are you prepared for the retaliation?
Stephanie: My ex-husband thinks that he's taken everything away from me, but you know, I'm not exactly the kind of woman that just rolls over. I think I still have a rather formidable position here in the fashion industry, and, uh, Eric will soon be reminded of that, won't he? I think-- I think what I have to say will be one hell of a blow against Forrester Creations.
Bill: And hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
Stephanie: Or a woman who gets even.
Bill: (Laughs) I like the way you think. And it's my pleasure to be a part of it.
Stephanie: Mine, too, I hope. Thank you, Bill.
Owen: Your text said that you needed my help.
Jackie: Well, I do. I have this one little spot that I can't seem to reach. I thought you might have the right angle.
Owen: Look, Jackie, I tried to find you at the office. I had a conversation with Bridget, and I would like to talk to you about it.
Jackie: Well, you can, just as soon as you take your clothes off and get into the tub with me.
Bill: The log-in's secure. Everything's ready? Great. I.T. has your site... ready to go.
Stephanie: Wow, that's-- (chuckles) that's beautiful.
Stephanie: "Inside fashion with Stephanie Forrester."
Bill: Just look in that camera and say what's on your mind.
Stephanie: You mean just off the cuff?
Bill: Talk to the camera like you're talking to a friend. That's how you'll draw the audience to you.
Stephanie: Uh, well, um, hello. I'm Stephanie Forrester. (Chuckling) I've never done one of these things before. Um, well, some of you may know me from the fashion industry here in Los Angeles. And some of you may have read about me, uh, in--in the newspaper, in the--in the media. Uh, let's see. I guess like many of you, I've had a run of bad luck recently, um, and like many of you, I lost my job, too. But then I got a little bit lucky. I've ended up in partnership over at, uh, Jackie M. Designs, and so, um, I'm going to do, uh, a webcast every day like this, and I guess I should introduce myself as "the new Stephanie Forrester, A.D."-- After Donna. I think what I'll do every day is, uh, in telling you part of our story, I'll, um, I'll take you behind the scenes and tell you and show you all of the dirt and the intrigue that goes on in the fashion design houses. But I'm also going to tell you that fashion is fabulous. It really is. You know, what you wear reflects who and what you are, and what you design reflects who and what you are, and that's kind of the sad case that's happened over at Forrester Creations. Eric Forrester used to be a really wonderful designer that's chosen to live his life with, shall we say... a group of bitches in heat? And that being the case, his quality of designs has sort of, well, gone over the cliff. That's not the case at Jackie M. We're into new, youthful ideas. I think on this webcast, I'd like to send a message over there to, um, to Forrester Creations. Maybe you'll join me. I wouldn't buy Forrester Creations. Would you?
Owen: Jackie, I need you to listen to me.
Jackie: About Bridget.
Owen: Look, I know that you said that you were okay with my dating her.
Jackie: Well, absolutely, just as long as my needs are being met. Now be a good boy and look over there. There's something on the table for you.
Owen: Well, it's a key.
Jackie: Yeah. Car keys. Your new position not only comes with a raise, but it comes with a company car, and it is a very fast car so that when I call you-- (meows) you can get here really fast.
Owen: Wow, I-- I mean, I don't know how to thank you.
Jackie: You don't need to thank me. I should be the one thanking you. Before I met you, I was in a rut. I didn't know who I was. You relit the fire in me, Mr. Knight, and I am not ready for it to go out.
Owen: Jackie, look, about Bridget, I... (sighs)
Jackie: Come here. Come here. Come here.
Jackie: You don't have to think, you know. You don't have to think about Bridget. You don't have to think about anything. Just enjoy it.
Owen: Look, Jackie, you-- look, you are my fantasy.
Owen: Oh, my God, we are good together.
Jackie: Oh, yeah.
Owen: But I am interested in a woman who can-- who I can have a future with, and somebody that can-- that can-- I can have children with. All right? And Bridget, she needs a man of her word, and I want to be that for her.
Jackie: Then that is what you should be. You should be a man of your word on the unemployment line. You continue to see Bridget. You can sleep with her, if she'll let you. But you try to put an end to us, and that could be the end of your career.
Owen: No, you wouldn't do that to me.
Jackie: Of course, I would.
