Bill: All right, what is this? The bottom's falling out in our southeast division.
Ursula: These are very hard times, Mr. Spencer.
Bill: I don't need you to state the obvious, Ursula. I need you to come up with a strategy to get back our market share.
Ursula: We're working on it.
Bill: Work harder. I want a plan on my desk this afternoon.
Ursula: Yes, sir. Oh, Stephanie. Uh, what's your "Logan Chronicle" for today?
Stephanie: I don't have one for today, Ursula.
Bill: Well, well, well. I wondered if I'd be seeing you today.
Stephanie: Liar, liar, liar. You knew I would be here.
Bill: Yes, to save your precious Eric, no doubt. You need to give it up, Stephanie. I hold all the cards. I don't need you anymore. Game's over.
Eric: Our sales picture will improve now that Stephanie’s called off the dogs.
Donna: Eric, please don't get complacent. Our company is still under fire.
Eric: But losing Stephanie as an ally will lessen Spencer’s impact.
Donna: Bill Spencer is a very determined man. He wants Forrester Creations, and he doesn't like not getting what he wants.
Jackie: You and Bridget have got a lot of catching up to do. I'm available to baby-sit.
Nick: There won't be any babysitting by you, Mother, if that boyfriend is involved in this package.
Jackie: Oh, Nicky, please.
Nick: I don't want him around. I don't want him around my son. I don't want him around this company. I don't want Owen around.
Jackie: Will you just stop talking about him as though he's some kind of criminal? He's good for me, and he is very good for this company.
Donna: Who's to say we can even trust Stephanie after all the scathing things that she's done?
Eric: I'm pretty sure we've heard the end of it, Donna.
Donna: You know, with or without Stephanie, Bill Spencer is a force to be reckoned with.
Eric: But without Stephanie’s negative input, our clients will start to come back. You'll see.
Donna: I hope you're right. I hope that woman doesn't cause us any more damage.
Stephanie: So this is all just a game to you?
Bill: And I'm having a ball.
Stephanie: Well, let me caution you that you're heading down a dangerous path.
Bill: Dangerous for Eric.
Stephanie: I don't know what it is you've got in your head. It's all speculation, though. Believe me. And you're dead wrong.
Bill: Dead wrong, am I? Huh. Well, I guess that's good news for you, right? Since you're so certain nothing ever happened and so positive that your dear ex-husband never hired undocumented workers.
Bill: You do know it's a crime?
Stephanie: Nothing happened.
Bill: I saw you sweat last night. I think it did.
Stephanie: What you saw was a woman who realized she'd made a mistake getting involved with you.
Bill: And here I had such high hopes for you as a co-conspirator.
Bill: Well, now I'm just gonna have to play the game a little differently. Since you won't give me what I'm after, I'll have to go out and find it.
Stephanie: There's nothing to find out.
Bill: Who's lying now?
Stephanie: You better be very careful. Don't start throwing allegations around that you can't prove, because that is slander, and you will be prosecuted.
Bill: You know, I like you. I get a kick out of you. Here Eric is staring a prison cell straight in the face, and you're threatening me with prosecution.
Stephanie: (Laughs) Eric is not at risk. Look, what you've done is out of the air grab some innocuous remark that I made, and you're trying to turn it into a federal case. There's nothing to go on.
Bill: Then I'll find it.
Stephanie: There's nothing to find out.
Bill: If there was nothing to find out, you wouldn't be standing here trying to convince me not to pursue it. In fact, with every word that comes out of your mouth, you convince me that I need to dig a little deeper.
Stephanie: Look, I don't-- if you want to waste your time and energy, you go right ahead. I can't stop you. Maybe that's your problem. Maybe you have too much time on your hands.
Bill: Hmm, maybe you're right. Maybe I do have too much time on my hands. Maybe that's why I want Forrester Creations so badly I can taste it. And I will have the company, Stephanie. It's a just a question of whether or not I have to send Eric to jail to get it.
Stephanie: Over my dead body.
Bill: Don't make promises you won't keep.
Stephanie: Oh, it's not a promise. It's a threat. And don't get ahead of yourself, junior.
Eric: I think we should take her at her word, Donna. I don't think Stephanie’s gonna cause us any more trouble.
Donna: Why? Why should we trust her?
Eric: Look, her children asked her to stop these attacks, and she agreed. She's not gonna break her promise to them.
Donna: That still doesn't mean that Bill Spencer isn't going to be a problem. Eric, this is a man who plays for keeps, and he lives for getting what he wants.
Eric: Well, he's not gonna get anything of mine. I can promise you that.
Jarrett: Hey, boss. You sounded urgent on the phone. Some big project you have for me?
Bill: Jarrett, yes. Come on in. You've covered the Forrester family for Spencer publications for years. It's fair to say that they think of you as one of their most trusted contacts, right?
Jarrett: Yes, I think that's fair to say.
Bill: I'm doing a-a little, uh, a little research on their history. Are you aware of, I don't know, any transgressions that Eric may have been involved in with regard to his employees?
Jarrett: (Sighs) No, nothing. Um, not since I've been around. He--he's above reproach.
Bill: Huh, yeah. Of course he is. Would you mind taking a look at something for me? Tell me what you think. "A warm, generous heart can cloud one's decisions, and in business, that can lead to trouble, professionally, politically, even legally."
Jarrett: Well, he is a very kind man. It's true. Uh, well thought of by his employees. He's often gone to bat for them when needed.
Bill: Hmm. What do you know about the Forrester employees? Uh, sewers, cutters, tailors, maintenance staff.
Jarrett: Not much.
Bill: Most of them are foreign, right?
Jarrett: Well, that's true of almost any fashion house.
Bill: Well, I suppose it is. But in Eric’s case, I think he may not have always been on the up-and-up with the law.
Jarrett: Do you have proof of this?
Bill: No. No, I don’t. That's where you come in. You're gonna find it for me.
Stephanie: Eric? I had a conversation with our children, and as a result of it, um, I'm not going to continue with "The Logan Chronicles."
Eric: They told me that. They were very grateful. And so am I.
Stephanie: However, I think we have a problem with Bill Spencer.
Eric: With Bill Spencer? Your new best friend?
Stephanie: Something I said. Um, he's going after it like a bulldog.
Eric: Going after what?
Stephanie: He thinks that Forrester Creations hired undocumented workers.
Jackie: So I'm being given the silent treatment, am I?
Nick: Yes, because we don't see eye to eye on this, Mother.
Jackie: Oh, God, what is so wrong with Owen and me?
Nick: Where would you like me to start?
Jackie: Don't be such an old fuddy-duddy.
Nick: I'm your son, Mother. I have a son's perspective. You're a beautiful woman, but you are a bit older, and you got a lot of money, and I think he's taking advantage of you.
Jackie: (Scoffs) Is it so difficult for you to believe that he might actually like me for who I am?
Owen: Hey, isn't it time for our meeting?
Eric: What did you say?
Stephanie: Well, it was an innocuous comment. You know, it was something along-- I-I-I said something about you having a generous heart, and that could sometimes be a problem, you know, legally, professionally. I don't know, but he got a hold of it, and he thinks that we have something to hide.
Eric: And that's all he has to go on?
Stephanie: Yeah. Are we vulnerable?
Eric: We've been investigated before. Nothing's ever turned up. You know, there was that incident with Claudia Cortez a few years ago, and since then, we've been very, very, uh, careful about how we do these things. We're protected, Stephanie. Everyone is protected. He's not gonna find anything.
Stephanie: You're sure?
Eric: Yes, I'm sure. Damn it! How could you let yourself get involved with this-- this--this pariah? This Bill Spencer? Were you that angry and that fed up with me that you'd get involved with him?
Stephanie: Oh, it wasn't about that. It was about the children. You pushed them aside in favor of Rick and Donna.
Eric: Oh, I was never gonna push them aside. They're my children, too.
Stephanie: Well, that's why I did the deal with Bill. I wanted to get control of the company. He was gonna buy it and sell it back to me.
Eric: What? Wait, you're part of this plan? You're part of Bill's plan to-- to steal this company from me?
Stephanie: I wanted to get control of the company that you and I built for our children. I wanted to fix that.
Eric: Oh, my God, well, you fixed it all right. Look at this.
Stephanie: Oh, well, just stay on the issue, would you, please? Is there anything that he can find out?
Jarrett: (Sighs) Got the information you wanted.
Bill: It's about time. Let's get at it.
Jarrett: You know, I'm really not comfortable with this. Going after Eric Forrester--
Bill: Jarrett, if Eric hasn't done anything wrong, there won't be a problem. If he has, he needs to be held accountable. Now what do you have?
Jarrett: All right, well, I used my sources to get as much information as I could on Forrester employees past and present. Through some, uh, special connections, I was actually able to access a detailed database of Forrester records.
Bill: Great. Let's get started.
Jarrett: And do what, exactly?
Bill: Verify citizenship.
Jarrett: We're looking for a needle in a haystack.
Bill: Mm-hmm. And if we find it, it'll be well worth it.
Owen: So that's my proposal-- discount some of the line, get people into boutiques looking for a bargain.
Nick: It cuts into our profit margin.
Owen: Well, a little profit margin is a lot better than none.
Jackie: Well, I personally think it's a really excellent idea.
(Cell phone rings)
Jackie: We should try it. Excuse me. What? No, no, no, I'll-- I'll come down. Nope, I'm on my way. Play nice, boys.
Owen: So, um, are we done here?
Nick: No, we're not. Sit down.
Owen: Look, if you're about to up your offer, cash in hand, for me to get rid of your mom, I'm not interested.
Nick: Because you're such an up-front guy.
Owen: Look, I care about your mother, Nick.
Nick: You care about what she can do for you. You've gotten your promotion. You've gotten your roll in the hay. Pretty soon all that polish is gonna wear off your shiny act, and she's gonna see through it. (Clears throat) And she'll be done with you.
Owen: Well, why don't we let mommy decide that for herself?
Nick: You watch your tongue, son. You will never be anything more than her boy toy. She can have her fun, but it will end soon, and when it does, you'll be out of this company, and if you're lucky, you'll still have your teeth.
Owen: Do you really think that you are gonna get rid of me that easily, huh?
Jackie: Stop it. Stop it, Nicky, I mean it. I will not let you bully him.
Jackie: Nicky, you were the one who told me, "Go out. Find somebody."
Nick: A man, Mother, not a boy.
Jackie: Oh, trust me, he is all man. Can't you see how happy he makes me?
Nick: You just make sure you do your job here.
Owen: I know where I stand. Your mother is the one in charge here.
Nick: I have a meeting with our accountants. I will see you later, Mother.
Owen: You're the boss, Jackie. You're the one in charge. I just take the orders. And I meant what I said. If you want me to leave, then I will leave. You don't want me to leave, do you?
Jackie: Oh, hell, no. (Sighs) Absolutely not. Here, though? In Nick's office? On his desk?
Owen: Exactly. On his desk.
Jackie: Oh, God. (Chuckles) Mm.
Eric: Bill Spencer. That bastard. I'm not gonna let him scare me. All of our workers are properly documented. How could one simple act of kindness be any kind of a crime?
Stephanie: Maybe we should get some legal advice, because if there is something, you could go to jail.
Eric: Oh, well, that's not gonna happen. That's not gonna happen. Our bases are covered. Every--everybody's fine here.
Bill: Every Forrester employee has a social security number?
Jarrett: Everything looks legit.
Bill: Well, this isn't getting us anywhere. You know what? Give me a name. Just give me a name. Pick one.
Jarrett: Uh, Bobby Gavieres.
Bill: Bobby Gavieres. All right. I'm gonna Google him, narrow it down to L.A. Bobby Gavieres. Born August 13, 1959, in Downey, California. Went to Downey High School, played soccer, blah, blah, blah.
Jarrett: Same guy. Same address, same birth date.
Bill: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Bobby Gavieres died years ago-- a multi-car pileup on the Santa Monica Freeway. He is very dead.
Jarrett: But then how--
Bill: Eric Forrester. You sneaky little devil.
Eric: You know, this is not the first time that your temper has gotten us in trouble.
Stephanie: (Scoffs) And I guess we could say the same thing about your philandering, couldn't we?
Eric: Yeah, but that never threatened to bring down the whole company.
Stephanie: All right, Eric. You woke up out of that coma, and I thought things were going to be different, all right? Okay. I thought we were gonna be together. I thought you and I were going to be here at our company with our children running it. It didn't work out, okay? I was angry. I was upset. I was hurt. I was disappointed.
Eric: And you think that's an excuse?
Bill: So that's how he does it. Eric gives his illegal employees the names of dead U.S. citizens. Identity theft of dead people. Just the proof I need to bring him to his knees. I've got him. Either he sells me Forrester Creations on my terms, or he goes to prison for a long, long time.
Eric: That doesn't justify you lashing out like that, spewing contempt on this web site of yours...
Eric: Degrading my wife and her family on your infantile "Logan Chronicles."
Stephanie: Okay, okay, Eric. I didn't see it playing out this way, all right?
(Cell phone rings)
Bill: I was right.
Stephanie: About what?
Bill: I have everything I need. Tell him he better be prepared to hand over Forrester Creations to me on my terms, or he won't like the consequences. And, Stephanie, you're no match for me.
