Katie: Hey, you're not ready!
Brooke: I'm not going.
Katie: Oh, come on, it'll do you some good. We'll get out. We'll get some fresh air.
Brooke: No, I'm tired.
Katie: You're just sitting waiting for the phone to ring.
Brooke: (Sighs) You know, I really thought I was getting through to him until Steffy showed up. This idea that she and Thomas have about reuniting their family, having Ridge and Taylor back together again-- it's just a pipe dream. It's not going to happen.
Steffy: So let's keep it small, just family.
Thomas: No, no, we should go big, invite everybody we know.
Stephanie: What are we talking about?
Taylor: Um, event planning.
Stephanie: What? You're not talking business on a gorgeous day like this? Why aren't you down at the pool having a good time?
Steffy: Uh, well, mom and dad didn't want to wear their suits, so...
Thomas: They're a little, uh, too busy for swimming.
Stephanie: Well, what can I do to help?
Taylor: You could give us the name of your florist.
Taylor: Ridge and I are planning a wedding. We are getting married, Stephanie.
Stephanie: Hallelujah! (Laughs)
Whip: Well, I think the chart tells a story.
Jackie: Oh, please tell me this is not an optical illusion.
Clarke: No, and neither is this.
Whip: Oh, look at that. See, Forrester is definitely in a free fall. Jackie M. is on the rise. I think it's about time to hit the afterburners and go completely stratospheric, hmm?
Pam: Ooh, guess I better tighten my seatbelt, huh, Whip?
Whip: That's right. You better, you better. Forrester is definitely struggling. Ugh, all this goop and glitter after their last showing. I mean, if this was supposed to be a joke, nobody got it. And if it was sabotage, well, it worked.
Owen: Listen, who cares? When the competition stumbles, you don't stand around wondering what happened?
Whip: No, no, no, exactly. Exactly, I mean, this--huh-- that's old news. But this--oh, this is what everybody is talking about. Jackie M., that's you, lady. See, fashion is all about creating the right image, and it's this image-- a powerful woman with a to-die-for husband. See, Jackie, in the same way that Stephanie used to epitomize the grandeur of Forrester Creations, you embody the bold, irreverent spirit of this company. Now I want to amp it up. I-I want to push it. I want to go total claws out cougar diva.
Jackie: (Growls, laughs)
Whip: Yeah, that's it, yeah. I mean, we're gonna have to turn the heat up if we want to be number one. We gotta turn the heat up on Forrester Creations and the entire fashion industry. Okay, no more stick-thin teenage models, right?
Jackie: Oh, good. (Laughs)
Whip: No, we want real women, okay? We're gonna give them something that they have never seen before. This campaign, mm, has gotta s-s-s-s-sizzle.
Jackie: Why don't you just tell me what you want because your... (growls) cougar, she's ready.
Whip: All right.
Whip: Okay, remember, we're selling fantasy. You can go over the top. Just camp it up. If--if you think you've gone too far...
Whip: Go just a little bit farther.
Owen: Okay, wa-wait a minute. My wife has a reputation. She's a top-notch businesswoman. She's not, uh, Mrs. Claus.
Whip: Well, uh, this campaign will make her successful beyond her wildest dreams. Come--it's called "indulge." Come on, take a look at the storyboards. Come, come, look. It's all about pleasure and satisfaction, okay? The finest clothes, the sexiest men, the most delicious food, opulent locations.
Clarke: Oh, that sort of thing can get you in trouble these days, although I am all for decadence. The best of everything for me.
Pam: That's what a man like you deserves.
Whip: You know what, Pam? It's what everybody deserves. But they don't-- they don't think that they do. But Jackie does. Jackie's not afraid to take a great big juicy bite out of life. If she wants a younger man, she's gonna get a much younger man, and, you know, why have one when you can have four? Hey, boys, come on in. (Chuckles) Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Clarke: Yabba dabba doo.
Owen: No, no, no, no. Wait, wait a minute. I thought this was Jackieís photo shoot. It's not "dudes-r-us," come on.
Whip: Owen, Owen, these are just props.
Jackie: Oh, you are bad.
Whip: That's right, but you are badder, okay?
Whip: And that's exactly what we want to put out there. You are--you are unabashed.
Whip: You are unapologetic. You are undeterred by anything. Jackie, you are living the life that our clients only daydream about. I mean, they may not be able to seduce every man on the dance floor, but we want them to think that wearing our clothes allows them to.
Owen: This is inappropriate. This is undignified.
Jackie: No, look, darling. Forrester is dignified, and look where it got them. I think we should give it a try. If you don't like the photographs, we kill 'em. But I think it sounds like some serious fun, and I'm gonna try it, and I'm gonna get ready, and I'll see you in a bit. (Laughs)
Whip: All right, let's do it!
(Camera shutter clicking)
Katie: Look, you know that I'm a big believer in you and Ridge, but he is living with Taylor. He's--he's there with her, with their--with their children. And there's Stephanie. I'm sure she's pushing the two of them together.
Brooke: Well, it's not going to happen. He's playing house with them now. He was swept up into something, but he's not going to make a commitment. When it comes down to the wire, he's going to have to admit who he's really in love with, and that will be me.
Stephanie: This is excellent news. I-I-I'm just so happy. I'm thrilled, actually. Congratulations. Congratulations. It's been a long time coming, but here you are, back where you belong. Did you know he was, uh, planning a proposal?
Ridge: Actually, I didnít.
Stephanie: You didn't?
Taylor: I did.
Stephanie: You did?
Taylor: Yes, I didn't want another day to go by. We're so happy all together, and I want this to last forever.
Stephanie: So have you set the date?
Taylor: Oh, we're looking at calendars right now.
Steffy: Yeah, do it soon.
Thomas: How's, uh, tomorrow?
Taylor: Oh, Thomas, it takes a lot of time to plan a wedding.
Stephanie: Honey, they don't call me the "wedding planner" for nothing. I'll call the minister, the florist, the caterer. Tomorrow's good for me. How about you? I mean, come on, you have your whole lives ahead of you. Let's get on with it.
Steffy: Oh, it's gonna be perfect.
Thomas: Come on, Dad.
Stephanie: So Taylor proposed.
Stephanie: I didn't realize that you were even thinking-- talking about it. I mean...
Ridge: Uh, we werenít.
Stephanie: Well, much less thinking about it.
Ridge: I said yes, Mother. We're getting married. My life is with Taylor and the kids now. We're gonna make it official so nobody gets confused.
Stephanie: Who's confused? You? Oh, Brooke, I see. Okay. So has she been trying to see you again?
Ridge: We've talked.
Stephanie: Honey... (chuckles) (sighs) She realizes she's made a terrible mistake, of course. She's just so predictable.
Ridge: Just leave her alone, Mother.
Stephanie: I will if you will.
Ridge: I have to tell her that Taylor and I are getting married. The sooner, the better.
Stephanie: Oh, donít.
Ridge: She has to hear it from me.
Stephanie: Well, it isn't gonna make any difference what you say. You know, she's-- honey, she's never more dangerous than when she's desperate.
Ridge: I won't be long.
Stephanie: Listen to me. She's promised you the world and never delivered. Don't forget how much heartbreak and suffering that she's caused you. This is your future.
Jackie: Um, so we're at the beach.
Pam: Well, yeah, but the backdrop looks about as fake as, uh, Donna Logan's...
Clarke: Life preservers.
Whip: No, no, no, props. We want the focus to be on Jackie.
Owen: Okay, then why don't we put the focus on Jackie? What do we have to have these guys in here for?
Whip: Oh, oh, okay, look, it's my shoot. It's--it's my call. You want to be in it, that's fine. You have a great physique.
Owen: No, it's not about me being in the shot. I don't want to be in the shot. I'm just not ho--I'm not hot on the whole concept.
Jackie: Darling, darling, come here, come here.
Owen: You're beautiful.
Jackie: I--darling, please. Look, just imagine we're back in Hawaii. You can top that. Yeah, ya can. (Giggles)
Owen: What can I say?
Jackie: Hmm, well, you can't, can you?
(Camera shutter clicking)
Whip: Okay. We'll call this one, uh-- we'll call this "surf's up."
Clarke: Not your cup of tea, uh, Pamela?
Whip: Okay, okay, so, uh, that's good, that's good. Uh, let's just do one more. Hey, uh, you, big guy, why don't you pick her up...
Whip: And pretend like you're rescuing her from the water, okay?
Owen: Okay, so then what do you-- what do you want me to do?
Jackie: Okay. (Giggles)
Whip: What do you want to do?
Owen: Well, I mean, you got me in this thing. You got me out here. Why don't you just take some pictures with Jackie and me by ourselves? That would be nice.
Jackie: Just one leg.
Whip: You know what? Okay, okay. Great. Yeah, yeah. Great. Great idea. Um, yeah, you and Jackie. This is perfect, perfect. This is gonna be hot.
Whip: That's it. That's it. Great. You are in total control. You got him where you want him. Okay. All right, great. Next setup.
Whip: Okay, okay, yeah, yeah, that's the shot. That's the shot. Now look, you--you've just come home from a night at the club. You've danced with every man in the place. You've taken a few up to the V.I.P. lounge, you know, had your way with them, but now--now you're home. You're back home soaking in a tub with the number one stud, huh?
Owen: All right, you know what? Seriously, man...
Whip: What's the problem?
Owen: This is not cool, making my wife out to be some sex starved diva. Come on.
Jackie: Darling, darling, darling, please, come here. Come here. You know what? This isn't real. It's just a photo shoot. It's--it's like--it's funny.
Whip: Look, Owen, Owen, come on, I-I get it, okay? You're crazy about the lady. She's Mrs. Owen Chief of Staff when she comes home, but here in this campaign, she is Jackie M., the diva, the free spirit who does whatever she wants with whomever she wants. (Sighs) You--you get what I'm saying, right? It--it makes sense to you?
Jackie: Oh, I think it's brilliant.
Taylor: Where's Ridge?
Stephanie: Oh, he, uh, he--he went over to Brookeís. He's going to tell her the news.
Brooke: Oh, Katie! See, I told you to take your key. Ridge?
Ridge: Hey, Logan. The kids back from camp?
Brooke: No, no. It's their long day. You came back. I knew you would.
Ridge: We need to talk.
Brooke: (Sighs) So you've been thinking about what I said, right? Oh, Ridge, I understand why you left. And I understand why you told Steffy you're gonna be with Taylor-- because you just needed some time, time to put everything in perspective. But you heard me. You heard me.
Ridge: Yeah, I did. And now you need to listen to me. I have something I need to tell you. I don't want anyone else telling you before I do. I'm not coming back, Logan. I'm staying with Taylor. We're getting married.
Jackie: Oh... (laughs)
Whip: Whoo! You did good.
Jackie: Uh, no, we did great.
Whip: Well, this campaign's gonna definitely take Jackie M. right over the top.
Jackie: (Giggles) Indulge.
Whip: Mm-hmm. It wouldn't be the same without you. I wish your hubby could see that.
Jackie: He will. He's just being... protective of his wife. That's all. I like it.
Owen: All done.
Whip: Are we?
Owen: That wasn't a question, Whip.
Whip: You did good. So did you.
Taylor: This isn't like it's a bad thing.
Thomas: What do you mean? He went to Brookeís.
Taylor: To tell her that he's marrying me.
Steffy: She wants him back.
Taylor: It's what your father wants that matters, and he wants to make that clear to her.
Thomas: Yeah, but will she listen to him?
Stephanie: I don't think your mother has anything to worry about. I wish he hadn't gone, but, you know, he--he thought it was the right thing to do, to tell her himself. And you have to respect that. She isn't gonna want to hear this. We know that. But that doesn't matter. He's made his decision. No matter what she says or does, he isn't going to change his mind.
Ridge: I know it's gotta be a shock.
Brooke: No, it--it's too soon, Ridge. You told me that. I asked you. Wait, you can't do this.
Ridge: Taylor and I already started making plans.
Brooke: No, no, it's wrong. It's a mistake. I should know because I caused it. I told you to go over there and live with her.
Ridge: Yes, you did. You told me this is what you wanted.
Brooke: No, it's not what I wanted, not really.
Ridge: Brooke, please don't make this any more difficult than it already is.
Brooke: And why is it difficult? Have you asked yourself that? Why come here and tell me anything at all? If you really wanted to marry Taylor, you would just marry her. But you wanted me to stop you.
Brooke: Well, then you want to punish me.
Ridge: No, I donít.
Brooke: I hurt you, and I pushed you away. So you want me to feel the exact same thing.
Ridge: Don't do this.
Brooke: Well, don't make me. (Sighs) It's not too late, Ridge. I just need you to understand how I feel.
Ridge: I do understand. And I need you to understand something, too. You may regret pushing me away the way you did, but this didn't happen by mistake, Brooke. We didn't get here by accident.
Brooke: It was an accident.
Ridge: It wasn't just one thing. It was everything. It was Phoebe, all of our problems with Rick, Steffy, Taylor and me. All these things shouldn't have happened, but they did.
Brooke: Because of my unfailing support of my son.
Ridge: Brooke, you refuse to see my point of view. You and I were on totally different wavelengths the whole time.
Brooke: Ridge, we're not now. I was foolish then. I see what I was doing, but I-I will put you first from now on above anything else. I promise you that. I give you my word. Just don't go into this marriage.
Ridge: It's too late.
Brooke: No. No, it's not too late. We still love each other. And you're not gonna resolve your hurt by marrying Taylor. She's not gonna make you happier than I can.
Ridge: Logan, once upon a time, we were happy. But the last long while, it's like our life has been a minefield. Every step we took just seemed to blow up on our faces. We couldn't help each other. I couldn't even help myself.
Brooke: So Taylor helped you? Is that why you're marrying her? Don't you see what you're doing? You're doing the same thing I did. You're just reacting out of hurt and confusion.
Ridge: I just need... I need some peace and quiet in my life, Brooke. I need... I need a direction in my life.
Brooke: You need it to be the way it was for us before everything went haywire. And it can be that. But not if you're with Taylor. She is not going to make you happier than I can, and you know that. So don't deny it. And don't deny yourself, because I am, and I always will be the love of your life.
