Stephanie: Oh, thanks.
Taylor: Knock, knock.
Stephanie: Taylor, hey!
Taylor: You busy?
Stephanie: No, no. Come. I'm just trying to find someone to, uh, do publicity for this company.
Taylor: Oh. Okay, well, um, I won't keep you long. I just wanted to drop by and give you this.
Stephanie: Oh, how nice.
Stephanie: What a great shot. I'll look at this, and I'll know all is right with the world.
Taylor: Well, it's--it's pretty good.
Stephanie: But not perfect?
Taylor: I don't want to say anything to jinx it. (Sighs) (sniffles)
Stephanie: That means Brooke is sniffing around.
Taylor: No. She came around to drop off R.J., and, um, it got a little tense until finally Ridge showed up.
Stephanie: You mean she waited until she--he came home?
Taylor: Yeah, and I'm trying not to let that tick me off.
Stephanie: Well, don't get complacent, Miss. If she doesn't have a man in her life, that means that you and Ridge are at risk.
Pam: Oh. Oopsie.
Taylor: Oh, Pam.
Pam: No, no. I'll--I'll come back later.
Taylor: No, no. I wanted to have a word with you please.
Taylor: Pam, that little stunt that was pulled at the fashion show, I know it as you.
Taylor: Yes, Pam. And I know that it made you feel better. I understand that, but it did not really help Forrester very much.
Pam: Well, it could have been good for Forrester, really, if you think about it. I mean, Steph always says "any publicity is good publicity."
Taylor: Nobody at Forrester sees it that way.
Bill: Should I take cover?
Katie: I'm all out of rotten tomatoes.
Bill: You're still upset that I ran that photo of your sister covered in honey, huh?
Katie: I'm trying to see it the way you do-- that--that it has flair, that it's exciting, interesting. It's certainly not boring. I'll give you that.
Bill: There's a lot of buzz being generated out there.
Katie: Yeah. Unfortunately, it's not the kind of buzz that Eric likes.
Katie: He expects me to come up with some major to do damage control.
Bill: Well, you know what? The furor will die down before you know it. And I still think this could end up being a good thing for Forrester.
Katie: Remind me not to say that to Eric again. It didn't go over so well the first time.
(Cell phone rings)
Katie: Hang on.
Katie: Hi, Eric. What's going on? Uh, yeah. I'm, uh, out of the office. I'm just working on a little project. Okay. Yeah, I'll--I'll see you in a bit. Bye.
Bill: Circling the wagons?
Katie: You could say that. You shouldn't underestimate Forrester. And you shouldn't underestimate me.
Bill: I never would.
Katie: You better not pull anything like this again, Mister, or you'll have me to deal with, and you don't want to mess with me.
Bill: Uh-oh. Is that a promise or a threat?
Katie: You think you're being cute.
Bill: I am.
Katie: You're trying, but it's not working.
Bill: It is.
Ridge: We had a great time at the park, huh? But I think he likes being here even better.
Eric: Yeah? Well, like father, like son. Uh, Madison, show him that stuff in my office I had...
Madison: Love to.
Eric: Would you?
Madison: Right this way, Mr. Forrester.
Eric: Thank you. (Laughs)
Ridge: Is my daughter making a statement here with this ensemble?
Steffy: Uh, I'm not a model.
Eric: That's exactly what makes this whole campaign so intriguing.
Steffy: Granddad, if your clothes look good on me, they can make anybody look good.
Donna: Oh, Marcus, good. Could you talk to Steffy, explain this idea?
Steffy: Look, I like the idea, and I want to help out, but me being the model? That cannot be the answer.
Marcus: Well... (clears throat) it better be. Here's the latest sales figures, and they're not good.
Steffy: But everyone's talking about us. Didn't Katie say that was a good thing?
Ridge: People love the collection. I've been getting calls all day.
Eric: Yeah, but they're not buying it.
Donna: And we all know why. Because of Pam. Her silly stunt ruined Ericís beautiful showing.
Stephanie: Don't say one word about what happened at Forrester.
Pam: Right. But I want them to know I'm going to be part of the team.
Stephanie: Pam! Pam! Don't say one word. Now do you want the job or not?
Pam: Yes. Yeah. Oh. Howdy do! (Laughs) Jackie. Nick. Clarke.
Nick: Sorry to interrupt the tea party, ladies. We've got interviews to conduct.
Pam: Well, um, actually, that's why I'm here. (Laughs)
Jackie: Not P.R.
Stephanie: No, no, no, no, no. The executive assistant position.
Clarke: (Laughs) Well, why not? Wouldn't want things to get boring around here.
Stephanie: My sister's eminently qualified to be executive assistant here at Jackie M.
Eric: Our image needs an overhaul.
Ridge: Sweetheart, you could be the face of that change, the new Forrester.
Katie: What's going on? I-I ran into Taylor in the parking lot. She said that Steffy's modeling?
Taylor: I-I was so excited. I couldn't keep it to myself. I told her about what we're doing.
Eric: Yeah, uh, Giovanni should be here any second.
Steffy: You know, can you just call him and tell him to wait. Maybe if I have a few more minutes to think about this, it's--
Taylor: You don't want to do it?
Ridge: She's just a little nervous.
Marcus: Hey, you're gonna be great, all right?
Ridge: Look, Giovanniís one of the best photographers in the business. He worked wonders with Kimberly Fairchild and your sister. If anybody's gonna make you feel comfortable and make it easy, it'll be him.
Steffy: All right. All right, I'll--I'll try. I know you guys are counting on me.
Taylor: Honey, if you're not comfortable with this, don't do it.
Steffy: Well, somebody's got to step up, and if you guys need me, I'll--
Katie: Okay, well, then, why don't you come with me, and we'll get you changed, and you can fill me in on the details?
Steffy: Okay. Okay.
Katie: It'll be fun.
Jackie: So, Pam, why don't you tell us about yourself.
Pam: Oh. Well, there isn't really all that much to tell. Um, other than the growth in my brain and being institutionalized briefly, uh, my life's been pretty boring. (Laughs) B-o-r-ing.
Stephanie: Yes, but you're completely well now.
Pam: Oh. I'm a-okay. Fit as a fiddle.
Clarke: Must be tough keeping that girlish figure with all the baking that you do.
Pam: You've heard about my baking? (Laughs) Well, I guess I was sort of famous over at Forrester for my lemon bars.
Stephanie: (Clears throat)
Pam: Okay. Um, let me just be flat-out honest here. I'm--I'm not a great typist, but I'm really good on the phones, and I'm a whiz at collating. Oh, and I love animals. You want to see a picture of my baby? This, uh, this is Tiny, my angel. He's, uh, he's in the big doghouse in the sky now because of Donna. I swear, if you guys want to bring down that dog killer and her awful family, I will work here for free. (Laughs)
Jackie: (Laughs) Well, that's obviously something you feel very passionately about.
Pam: Donna? Oh, uh, I'm none to fond of Miss Donna.
Nick: Which makes me wonder... did you have anything to do with the little incident... with the honey?
Pam: (Inhales sharply)
Ridge: Sweetheart, you look beautiful.
Taylor: You look like--
Steffy: Nobody say "Princess."
Ridge: Steffy, this is Giovanni.
Giovanni: It's a pleasure to meet you.
Steffy: Hi. Nice to meet you. Uh, my father says you're one the of the best.
Giovanni: I think that almost anyone could take a beautiful picture of you. Oh, okay. Here. Let me see. Okay? Just--just relax. Just be natural. No smile. Just perfect. Be natural, okay? Bene. Are you ready? Okay?
Giovanni: Here we go. Perfect. All right. Perfecto. Bene. Nice.
Eric: (Speaks indistinctly) Okay.
Giovanni: There we go. Bene. Just relax, okay? Yes, like that. Oh. Si. Si. Si. (Speaks indistinctly)
Giovanni: Perfecto. We're done.
Eric: Yeah? That was fabulous.
Taylor: That was great. Great.
Bill: This is the new face of Forrester Creations?
Eric: How did you get in here?
Bill: (Laughs) Seriously, this is the answer to your latest catastrophe? Hiring some new inexperienced model? Eric, come on, man. You--you got to think out of the box. You want to save this company, you have to do something bold. And you better do it fast.
Eric: How dare you show up here, Bill, after dragging my wife through the mud like that.
Bill: Or, uh, honey, as it were. Hell, you should be thanking me. Forrester's on the cover of at least a half dozen publications.
Eric: Publications? Tabloids. That is not the kind of publicity we want or need. But you went ahead and did it anyway, didn't you?
Stephanie: No one in this room is the least bit upset about what happened to Donna.
Nick: Well, we don't want to be associated with it.
Stephanie: You're absolutely right. That's why we need to concentrate now on hiring someone for P.R., so, Pam, thanks so much for coming in, and it's fine.
Stephanie: Go home. We'll talk to you later.
Nick: Hang--hang--hang on for a second. Hold--hold it. Now, Stephanie, this is a very important position here.
Nick: The executive assistant will be the first person that our clients see when they come through that elevator.
Pam: Like... (laughs)
Pam: Look, I-I-I know that I'm not just gonna be another pretty face sitting out there. I've got ideas, too. Like "The Price is Right," you know, the game show, Drew Carey, Mr. Wonderful-- it was my idea to do that whole tie-in with Forrester. I called the producer. I got a meeting. I set the whole thing up. And then Donna would mess the whole thing up, but it would have been great.
Stephanie: I-I think what Pam is trying to tell you is that she really did learn quite a bit at Forrester about the business.
Clarke: Stephanie, with all due respect, uh, Jackie M. is positioning itself on the cutting edge...
Clarke: And I really don't know how Pam and her pearls fit into that scenario.
Pam: You--you don't like my pearls?
Jackie: Oh, no. They're lovely. I-I--Clarke just meant they're old school.
Pam: Oh, well, if--if you want someone that's gonna sit out there and just look good in your clothes, then you probably should hire a model. But, um, if you want someone that's gonna make people feel really welcome and at home, I'm your girl. (Laughs) See, that's where Eric went wrong-- focusing on the superficial, making Donna the showstopper, putting sex in the spotlight like that. I'm telling you, I mean, he turned Forrester into a sleazy massage parlor...
Stephanie: (Clears throat)
Pam: If you ask me. Okay, I'm sorry. I'm getting all worked up about her again. It's just that that woman has heaped so much humiliation on my sweet sister and her family. With every disgusting drop of honey that she dripped on Eric--
Nick: Uh, I-I-I think we get the picture.
Pam: What about the job?
Nick: We'll let you know.
Stephanie: Okay. We'll talk later. Don't worry.
Pam: Oh. I should go?
Pam: Okay. Well...
Giovanni: We'll do more. We're not finished, okay?
Steffy: Okay. Maybe we can try later when there's not so many people around. Look, Marcus, I'm so sorry. I-I know this is a great idea, but with another model, this could be amazing.
Marcus: No. It only works with you, Steff.
Steffy: But this isn't me. Phoebe was the star.
Ridge: Sweetheart, we're not asking you to be like your sister.
Ridge: It's not about that.
Taylor: This is about family.
Ridge: Our family.
Ridge: Being part of a tradition.
Steffy: (Clears throat)
Ridge: I'll be honest with you-- we're in danger right now of losing that-- everything this company and everything this family stands for.
Steffy: I know. I-I get the concept, and I really want to help out. You don't think I want to stand up here and be proud of this business and my family? But the pictures aren't coming through, and I really don't think Giovanni can bring it out of me. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
Marcus: I'll talk to her. I'll talk to her.
Bill: Oops. Looks like your plan isn't gonna work, Eric. What now? The once-mighty Forrester Creations is on the slippery slope to ruin, or at best, bankruptcy.
Eric: Shut up, Bill. Not one more word.
Nick: Stephanie, do us a favor and let us know the next time you want to hire one of your relatives.
Stephanie: My sister is--she's fabulous, and she will be absolute-- you want some coffee?
Nick: I'm fine, thank you.
Stephanie: She--thank-- she'll be absolutely wonderful at this job.
Clarke: She's a little strange.
Stephanie: Strange? (Laughs) Look at everybody in this room, honey. She may be an underdog, but we all are.
Pam: Uh, hidey ho. May I just say one more little thing?
Stephanie: You go for it, Pam.
Pam: Thank you. Look, I-I know we got off on the wrong foot. Um, you don't think that I'm exactly Jackie M. material.
Stephanie: There's been no decision about the job.
Pam: I'm an odd duck! There's no way around that, especially here in Hollywood. Look, I crochet my own sweaters, for Peteís sake. I don't wear designer duds. I don't know all the groovy lingo. But the one thing that I really do know is people, and it just seems to me that all of you are a little more like me than maybe you want to admit. I've made mistakes, yes-- whoo-hoo, have I-- really big ones. But I am a hard worker. I'm loyal, committed-- not that kind of committed. I promise you I would make Jackie M. proud. (Sighs)
Nick: (Sighs) Well, Pam, when can you start?
Pam: I got the job?
Stephanie: You got the job.
Pam: I got the job!
Jackie: Welcome to Jackie M.
Pam: Oh, thank you! Thank you!
Jackie: (Laughs) Hope you make a mean cup of coffee.
Pam: The best in the city. And I'll make you all a big batch of lemon bars tonight.
Pam: No. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you!
Nick: Oh! That's--you're--mnh-mnh.
Pam: Thank you! Thank you! I promise you I will not let you down, Nick. I promise.
Nick: (Laughs) Okay. Good. That's nice.
Pam: (Claps hands, sighs)
Eric: You're wasting your time here, Bill. You're never gonna have this company.
Bill: Oh, sure I will. I always get what I want.
Katie: Bill, stop.
Eric: I built this company with my bare hands from the ground up. I had no help. And now it's one of the biggest labels in the world, one of the most successful. And you come in here, and you threaten me with bankruptcy? I didn't build this company for me or for my name. I built it so that my children could have a name that they were proud of, that they could have something that they could believe in that was actually bigger than themselves.
Bill: And yet, there's only a few of them still here.
Eric: You're never gonna have this. You're never gonna have this company, Bill. Never.
Bill: Ridge-- loyal to the end, going down with the ship.
Ridge: We're not going anywhere, Bill. Forrester Creations is not for sale, and it never will be, certainly not to you.
Bill: When you're creditors come looking for a way to get this albatross off their backs, they're not gonna be looking for my character references.
Ridge: Well, you can't have it. It's not gonna happen. Forrester Creations is not gonna fail. Now get the hell out of here.
Stephanie: (Sighs) Well, don't get complacent, Miss. If she doesn't have a man in her life, that means that you and Ridge are at risk.
Stephanie: Whip Jones? Oh, my God. A face from the past. Handsome face at that. He's perfect for our P.R. Perfect. And a perfect distraction for Brooke... until Ridge and Taylor get married.
