Taylor: This is our chance, Ridge. Really, look at it. You and me and Thomas and Steffy -- we'll all be together. We can heal. We'll be a family. All you have to do is say yes. Just say yes, that you will marry me.
Nick: Hey. All right, let's get this show on the road. What do you got?
Whip: (Clears throat) Well, it's, uh, it's no secret that the --the marketplace is somewhat challenging. In order for us to compete, we need a huge promotional campaign. We really need to saturate the marketplace with Jackie M. -- you know, like magazine covers, billboards, Sunset Boulevard, Times Square -- that sort of thing. But in order for us to do that, we need a fresh face that really represents what Jackie M. is all about, and in my opinion, that fresh face is you, Bridget.
Whip: All right, look -- you have an incredible fashion pedigree, you're a hot, young designer in your own right, and you are a stunningly beautiful young woman.
Bridget: Uh --
Jackie: It is a brilliant idea, Bridget. You'd be absolutely perfect.
Bridget: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. No, no, no. I am not a model. I'm a designer, and I would like to be taken seriously as one please.
Nick: So what's your next idea?
Owen: Hey. Sorry I am, uh, I'm late.
Owen: Hello. Hi. Mm.
Nick: Can we try to keep it professional in front of the new guy?
Jackie: Stop it. (Laughs) Mr. Jones is our new head of P.R. Owen is our chief of staff.
Owen: Owen Knight.
Whip: Yep. Hey. No introductions necessary. I have seen your picture plastered on every cover of every tabloid.
Whip: Nice publicity stunt marrying Jackie. Yeah. Oh, cougars are in, and, you, boy, did you capitalize on it. Well done, my friend. Well --
Jackie: Um, um -- (Laughs) Mr. Jones, it wasn't a stunt. Owen is my husband.
Whip: Oh, I'm sorry. Yes, of course. Well, but there are husbands, right? And then there are... (Whistles) husbands.
Owen: What's that supposed to mean?
Whip: Well, don't take offense. It's -- just giving you props, buddy.
Owen: Well, if you want to congratulate me on my marriage, then fine, but don't call it a publicity stunt. Jackie and I are for real, you got that, my friend?
Steffy: You gave up my dad. You can't change your mind a few days later and try to get him back.
Brooke: My feelings for Ridge haven't changed. I love him, Steffy, and I always will.
Steffy: Well, if you love him, then you'll want him to be happy.
Brooke: Yes. I can make him happy.
Steffy: I don't think you can. There's always drama between you two, especially with Rick, and I really don't know what's gonna happen between us.
Brooke: Well, that's up to the two of you, because I certainly can't let that interfere in my life anymore.
Steffy: Well, it already has. You supported Rick and me, and that's why my dad ended up with my mom, right? Look, it -- it meant so much that you actually stood up for us no matter what, and it cost you a lot. But no matter what you say, I do not think you can turn your back on Rick, and that's what my dad can't live with, so don't you see? It's hopeless.
Brooke: No. No. It isn’t. Ridge and I will find a solution, because I can't give him up, Steffy. I can't and I won’t.
Taylor: Yes. I want to marry you.
Taylor: Ridge, we've already lost so much time. I don't want to waste another day. Let's do it. Let's get married. Let's be a family again.
Ridge: Doc, everything we've shared -- all the joys, all the heartbreaks -- they're all such a big part of me, especially being here in this house with you and the kids.
Taylor: Are you saying... what I hope you're saying, um... what all of us hope you're saying?
Ridge: (Sighs) Yes, Taylor.
Taylor: (Sighs) Oh, my God, Ridge. Oh.
Whip: Well, you've got one fine specimen here, Jackie.
Jackie: Yep, I have.
Whip: Yeah. He's good looking, ripped and so earnest.
Clarke: Well, he is the, uh, Zac Efron here at Jackie M. You know, he walks down the hall, and women swoon and giggle, and they sometimes break out into song. They throw rose petals at his feet and put teddy bears in his arms. (Laughs)
Owen: Can we please change the subject?
Nick: You need a new campaign.
Whip: Yeah. Well, that was just one suggestion. I do have another one, one that I think we'll all agree will push us forward here. Jackie's taken the media by storm. I mean, it's her image that everybody wants. So why don't we give everybody what they want? Let's promote the brand with the lady herself.
Steffy: Brooke, what you're doing isn't fair. You are going after my dad again. You are throwing my family into chaos when we're finally starting to make sense of things.
Brooke: Steffy, I love Ridge, and I'm convinced that he still loves me, too. And I can't just give him up. Don't you see? I thought I was doing the right thing. But now I realize it --it's not.
Steffy: No. I am not gonna let you do this to my dad or my mom. Do you have any idea what she's gone through this year? She's lost a daughter. Her whole life has been thrown upside down. Same goes with my dad, and now we're together. We're finding joy and happiness together. Isn't that what you wanted? Wasn't that the most important thing was my dad's happiness?
Brooke: Yes. Yes, it was, but Ste --
Steffy: Then let him be happy. Do the right thing, and let him go, Brooke. Let him go. It's not working between you two, so move on. Just find another man and move on with your life, because I'm not gonna let you do this with my dad.
Taylor: Ridge, I just -- I just need to know that this is really and truly what you want. I'm not naive. I know you have feelings for Brooke, and I know that those are just not going to evaporate.
Ridge: Brooke is a part of my life. I can't change that. But I so need to put this past tragic year behind us. We lost our daughter because of Rick. Rick is always gonna be Brooke’s son. I can't change that either. I can't even change how much I despise that guy. But it's too much. It's more than any relationship can possibly bear. I can't continue... to keep getting caught up in all of that trauma. I just can't do it anymore. Our family needs to heal, doc, all of us together. You have been so strong. You've carried the weight of all this on your shoulders by yourself. Well, you're not gonna have to do that anymore, because my life is here with you and the kids now.
Taylor: We will make you happy, Ridge, because we love you, and we adore you, and we treasure you.
Taylor: This is what our family's about -- caring for each other and being there for each other.
Taylor: Ridge, you're home. This is where you belong.
Jackie: (Laughs) You want to feature me in the new ad campaign?
Nick: What exactly are you thinking?
Whip: Uh, let's see. Think, uh... (Inhales sharply) think ‘cougar-licious.’ (Growls)
Nick: Oh, God. Do I have to?
Whip: You know, on the prowl with Jackie M.
Nick: No, no. Hold it. Hold it. Hold it. Hold it. Hold it.
Whip: Oh, come on, Nick. Your mother --look, your mother is hot, all right, and she's got it all. She's got the sweet piece of arm candy. She's got success. She's got money. And she's incredibly sexy. She's got tons of sex appeal. Look, the party starts when this diva arrives. All the women want to be her, so let's show them how. And the best way we can do that is with her trademark. Okay, boys, bring it in.
Nick: Oh, God.
Whip: Look, this is --this campaign is gonna be so much fun -- over the top.
Nick: Everything my mother does is over the top.
Whip: Hey. Hey. What about, uh, you and, um, uh, Oscar get in the tub.
Owen and Jackie: Owen.
Whip: Yeah. Yeah. Well, whatever. Look, the bathtub is what put Jackie M. on the map. People are still talking about that press conference that you did.
Jackie: (Stammers) That was ages ago.
Whip: Yeah, my point exactly. Now once we put boy toy in it, you have hit a gold mine. He is the perfect fantasy guy for all of our female clientele who want to be you.
Nick: I'm trying to pretend this isn't really happening. I don't want to see my mother in a tub on a billboard on Sunset Boulevard.
Jackie: Actually, darling, you might have to, because I think it's a brilliant idea.
Bridget: Well, Jackie’s right, honey. Well... (scoffs) it is. It's brilliant. And it has that shock value thing that we need to stand out from the crowd.
Whip: Look, Jackie "the cougar" and her stud husband are already media favorites. Once you've got something like that, Nick, you --you've got to take it, and you've got to run with it while it's hot. And when it comes to hot, these two are smoking.
Jackie: Oh, yeah, you are.
Owen: No, you are.
Jackie: Mm. No, you are.
Whip: Yeah, you can never have too much heat.
Katie: Hey. (Door closes)
Katie: I didn't think you should be alone, so I want to see how you're doing. Apparently, you're not doing too well.
Brooke: Katie, I miss him so much.
Katie: Hon, I'm so sorry.
Brooke: I don't know what -- (scoffs) what I did. I just -- I-I made a terrible mistake. You were right. I never should have let him go.
Steffy: Mom, Dad, we're home.
Taylor: Can I tell them please?
Ridge: Knock yourself out.
Taylor: I have some very special news that something is about to happen that you have been waiting for for a very long time.
Steffy: Wait, are -- are you gonna say what I think you're gonna say? (Laughs)
Taylor: Yes. You're father and I are getting married.
Thomas: (Laughs) What?
Steffy: Oh, my God. (Laughs) Wait. I --this is amazing. I mean, what -- how did you decide this?
Ridge: Your mother actually asked me, and I accepted.
Steffy: Oh, my God.
Steffy: Dad, this is so what we need.
Ridge: I know, sweetheart. I know.
Thomas: We finally have our family back again. Thank you. (Sighs) Thank you so much.
Owen: Ah, ah, ah.
Jackie: Okay, darling, you know I love blindfolds...
Owen: To the right.
Jackie: But at home.
Owen: I know.
Owen: All right. Now...
Owen: Feast your eyes on... that.
Jackie: What? (Laughs) Oh, my gosh. This is --it's wonderful. Did --you did this?
Owen: Well, I think I have learned pretty well about what pleases my wife.
Jackie: (Laughs) Oh, you have.
Owen: Oh, not that there isn't, uh, more to learn.
Jackie: (Laughs) Always.
Owen: So tell me, what do you think about Whip's idea about featuring us in some of these ads?
Jackie: Um, I think, lucky me.
Owen: No. I think, lucky me. My beautifully sexy wife is gonna be the center of a hot, new ad campaign...
Owen: For Jackie M. And I was thinking maybe we should prepare.
Jackie: Huh? How?
Owen: I don't know. Maybe a little, uh, dress rehearsal?
Jackie: Mm-hmm. Well, I'm thinking more along the lines of an undress rehearsal.
Owen: Ooh. I like that.
Jackie: Mm. (Giggles)
Whip: Huh. Okay. (Laughs) Interesting couple. Well, your mom seems so dynamic, and he seems so, uh, I don't know, simple.
Nick: He's a meathead.
Whip: (Laughs) Well, they are married, though, right?
Nick: And I don't trust him.
Whip: Well, he seems to care about Jackie.
Nick: "Seems" being the operative word. For now we live with it.
Jackie: Oh. (Laughs)
Jackie: (Sighs) You know, you are the most perfect lover.
Owen: Mm. Well, that's a two-way street, Mrs. Knight.
Jackie: You know, I've got an idea. Why don't we go for a real slow drive back down that street and take in some more scenery.
Owen: As long as I'm the one that's driving.
Jackie: Oh, darling, you can put me on cruise control.
Jackie: Mm. (Giggles)
Jackie: Oh! (Giggles)
Brooke: I reacted emotionally when I told Ridge that we couldn't work through our issues, and then I just handed him over to Taylor. What was I thinking? (Sighs) I know he's still in love with me, Katie.
Katie: Of course he is. He can't just turn his feelings off just like that, not after everything you two have been through.
Brooke: Steffy was just here imploring me to leave Ridge alone and to leave their family in peace.
Katie: Well, I can understand why she wants her family together, but it's not up to her. It's up to Ridge. He has to decide who he's truly in love with. And that person is you.
Steffy: I just -- I can't believe it. I can't believe it's actually --
Ridge: Well, believe it.
Steffy: I can't believe it's happening.
Ridge: Yes, it is.
Taylor: I never thought I'd be this happy again. Just seeing you and the --the kids here all together, I just --I'm so thankful. (Sniffles) (Laughs) I know I'll be waking up next to you every day, and I'll have you by my side. I feel so blessed.
Steffy: Same here.
Thomas: Me, too.
Taylor: (Sniffles) I mean, I'm --I'm happy, but I'm --I know the family will never be quite the same without Phoebe.
Ridge: She's here with us now. You know that, right?
Taylor: I know. I just miss her.
Steffy: Dad's right.
Steffy: I can feel her.
Taylor: (Sniffles) I just wish I could put my arms around her and thank her, because I really believe that this is why we're all together. I really believe that Phoebe brought this family back together. (Sniffles)
Brooke: (Sighs) I'm sorry, Steffy. It's not gonna be the way that you want. Tomorrow, Ridge. I will see you tomorrow, and you will come back to me.
