Whip: (Sighs)

Jackie: Okay. Thanks. (Gasps) Oh, just the man I was looking for.

Whip: Well, you found me. (Chuckles)

Jackie: (Chuckles) Nicky’s gathering everyone in his office.

Whip: Oh, a meeting.

Jackie: Announcement. (Groans)

Whip: What? What?

Jackie: (Sighs)

Whip: What's wrong?

Jackie: Every time I see these, I just-- (Sighs)

Whip: Oh, come on, now. You're not getting cold feet already, are you?

Jackie: I'm in very capable hands.

Whip: You are in extremely capable hands.

Jackie: (Giggles) Yes, well, with confidence like that, this campaign, it can't fail.

Whip: No. No, Jackie, the Indulge campaign is going to work because of your look, you put this company on the map, but together, I think you and I can take it right over the top.

Ridge: I saw the initial estimates before the wedding.

Marcus: Well, the numbers could be a lot better.

Eric: Well, we haven't heard from all our boutiques yet. As long as actual sales meet our projections, we should be all right.

Donna: Yeah, but the projections were a little bit conservative.

Eric: They were. (Sighs) I did not figure in Jackie M.'s new Indulge campaign.

Katie: Well, it's a new campaign. Maybe it hasn't had an impact.

(Telephone rings)

Eric: Yes? I see. Uh, are those the final numbers? All right. (Sighs) Yeah, yeah. Thank you.

Ridge: How did we do?

Eric: (Sighs) Well, it's not good. Jackie M. has surpassed Forrester in sales.

Nick: Come on in. Everybody in. Come in. Come on.

Jackie: We're here.

Whip: What's up?

Nick: Thank you. Thank you. So the sales reports are just in.

Whip: Oh, it must be good.

Nick: We are up 10% from last month.

Owen: Nice.

Nick: And we are up 320% from last year.

All: (Cheering)

Jackie: (Laughs)

Pam: You see? Success follows my sister wherever she goes.

Nick: Yes, of course it does. Of course it does.

Stephanie: Oh, thank you. Thank you. But it is a team effort!

Bridget: Yes!

Whip: Well, the Indulge campaign's only going to improve those numbers.

Owen: That is because the whole world has fallen in love with my beautiful wife.

Stephanie: Aw.

Jackie: The sales were not hurt from all the publicity from our wedding.

Owen: Ooh.

Whip: Well, we ought to give Bill Spencer some credit on that. He's given us some really great publicity, and he's been a great friend to Jackie M.

Clarke: And a big, nasty enemy to Forrester.

Nick: O-okay, listen, people, I'll--I'll give credit to publicity. It's very necessary. But obviously, we need something to sell that people want. Therefore, I'm gonna have to look at my beautiful wife...

Bridget: Oh, no. Please.

All: (Laugh)

Nick: And thank her, because your designs are the reason that Jackie M. is now the number one fashion house in L.A.

Jackie: Nicky.

Clarke: Wow.

Owen: W-wait a sec. Our sales trumped Forrester?

Nick: It trumped Forrester... by a mile.

Owen: Oh.

Jackie: Oh!

Stephanie: Whoa!

Clarke: Yes!

Whip: Get used to that.

Owen: Mm.

Jackie: (Sighs)

Clarke: That's great.

Eric: Well, it's a great triumph for my daughter. I'm very, very proud of Bridget, but, uh, it's bad news for us. Something's going to have to be done.

Brooke: Sounds like you could use some help.

Marcus: Brooke?

Brooke: I'm back!

Katie: Really? Oh, your leave of absence is over?

Brooke: Yeah, and not moment too soon. It's like a wake in here. What's going on?

Donna: We just got the latest sales report.

Brooke: Old news. Whatever it is, just forget it. We have to stop looking backwards here. We have to stop yearning for what was, and we need to just forge ahead. We need to sweep away all that wreckage from the past, and we have to create something new and wonderful, exciting.

Stephanie: Well, how does it feel to be so accomplished, miss? A wonderful doctor. A talented designer.

Bridget: Right, right, right.

Stephanie: Just no escaping the genes. Let's toast...

Bridget: (Laughs)

Stephanie: Bridget, our number one designer.

Nick: Hear, hear. Cheers.

(Voices overlapping)

Clarke: Way to go, kid.

Pam: Whoo!

Bridget: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Stephanie: You know, your father is very proud of you.

Bridget: Thank you for saying that, and for the toast. Thank everyone for so much. I-we--everyone's worked so hard, and what about the production floor? Did we send any down there?

Nick: I've sent plenty down there. It's all handled.

Clarke: (Chuckles) Nice touch, boss.

Nick: Thank you.

Pam: (Laughs) I'm sorry. It's the bubbles. They just make me giggle. (Laughs)

Nick: Well, everybody in this building has a reason to be proud. We all know that. Nobody gave us much of a chance when we wanted to launch this line here at Jackie M. But then the mysterious Madame X showed up.

Bridget: Mm.

Nick: And then Stephanie came aboard, and the rest has been pretty much history. And you know what they say about the people who write history? They're the winners. So from here on out, Jackie M.'s gonna have a lot to say.

Stephanie: And a lot of people are gonna be listening and more importantly, buying.

Bridget: Yes.

Clarke: Hear, hear.

Nick: Yes, buying is very important. And you are very important. So as much as you've brought to Jackie M., you've brought even more to me. You bring your best every day to everybody. I'm so happy to be in your life.

Bridget: (Whispering) Thank you. Me, too.

Jackie: (Moans) Oh, now this is what I call a celebration.

Owen: Yeah.

Jackie: Oh.

Whip: Computer. Sorry.

Owen: Really? You know, I think we've got to get you your own office.

Jackie: Yeah, something big with a window.

Owen: I don't think that he needs a window. I think that he's got a great view from his new place. So Jackie told me that you moved into our building upstairs.

Whip: Yes, I did.

Owen: Well, welcome to the neighborhood.

Whip: Mm-hmm.

Owen: I guess we're gonna have to see how soundproof those walls really are.

Jackie: (Snorts)

Owen: Oh, crap, I got a call right now. And, uh, no, you don't get any points for guessing what François and I will be talking about.

Jackie: (Giggles)

Owen: Bye.

Jackie: Mm. Bye.

Owen: See you in a bit.

Jackie: Mm-hmm.

Whip: Well, I- I guess I should be going, too. I need to find a place where I can work on the rest of the Indulge campaign.

Jackie: Oh, no, don't go. I'm just dying to know what else you've got planned for me.

Eric: Brooke, this is wonderful news..

Katie: Welcome back.

Donna: Oh, boy, do we need you right now.

Brooke: And I really need to be here. When I left, that wasn't true. But I'm in a much more hopeful place now. I have my priorities straight, and I'm really ready to get back to work on something really important.

Eric: Your timing couldn't be better. We need you so badly.

Brooke: So... (Sighs) where do we start?

Katie: Well, Marcus had one idea, and it was a great idea. Unfortunately, Steffy wasn't real comfortable in front of the camera.

Marcus: Yeah, I know. It--it was really tough for her.

Eric: It was, and we shouldn't do that to her, and we can't depend on a young model who's uncomfortable with the whole situation to mold a whole new image.

Ridge: At least, not right now when things are so critical.

Katie: Let's not get all deflated and hopeless. The numbers weren't what we wanted, but that doesn't mean we're down and out forever.

Eric: Well, it's not going to be easy competing with Jackie M.'s new Indulge campaign.

Katie: I happen to believe that most women don't dream of being cougars traipsing around the world like some crazed, sex-hungry adolescent. Frankly, I find the whole campaign a little cheap.. it's not Forrester, and that's a good thing. I think most women dream of something more sophisticated. They want to be royalty, right?

Brooke: Oh, yeah.

Katie: And like us. Didn't we all want to grow up and be princesses?

Donna: (Giggles) Yeah.

Katie: Don't we want to be part of a royal family?

Donna: Yeah.

Katie: I think we build on that idea. We use iconic images of royalty to create a story line. We play on Forrester’s regal elegance. We use our own back-story. We're three girls from the valley, and look at the fairy tale we're living. We use that fantasy.

Donna: (Laughs)

Eric: I love it.

Katie: Good.

Eric: I think it's wonderful. I think it's whimsical, and it's sophisticated. It's exactly what we need right now.

Brooke: I agree. Every woman deserves to have a little "happily ever after."

Donna: (Giggles)

Whip: I think the important thing is to-- to keep pushing the boundaries, you know? We want to make sure everybody keeps guessing, "What are they going to do next?"

Jackie: Hmm.

Whip: Now here. I worked on this, uh, this little layout last night. I was up most of the night thinking about it.

Jackie: Oh, Mr. Jones, you were up most of the night thinking about little old me? (Chuckles)

Whip: No, just the campaign.

Jackie: Doesn't your girlfriend mind all the time you're spending on this?

Whip: I'm not seeing anybody.

Jackie: Oh.

Whip: Well, it's too busy, you know.

Jackie: Hmm. Well, you know what they say about all work and no play.

Whip: Well, if I do my job right, then I can play in my mansion on the French Riviera, right?

Jackie: Work hard now, reap the rewards later. I understand that one.

Whip: Exactly.

Jackie: You know, I really admire your work ethic. But don't get too burned out, because you are such a valuable asset. I wouldn't want to lose you.

Nick: Something's going on here.

Bridget: Yeah, I know. God, we're on--we're on a roll.

Nick: No, honey, you should be doing handsprings. You should be happier. You can give yourself a little credit, you know.

Bridget: Oh, Nick, it's just hard when my triumph means my father failed.

Nick: Forrester hasn't failed. They're struggling right now, but they'll be back. You know that. They always come back. Do you want to level the playing field a little bit? Have your mom go back to work.

Bridget: I know. You're right. I should call her. It'd be good for her anyway, but asking her to go back to Forrester with the whole wedding debacle, it's hard.

Nick: Oh, please. Come on, let's be real here. Brooke's gonna go back. You know she will, and when she does, they're gonna be back on their feet, and they're gonna come back strong, really strong. And when they do, we will be ready.

Bridget: (Chuckles)

Brooke: Iconic images-- tiaras, scepters.

Donna: Royal portraits.

Katie: We could recreate some really famous ones using Forrester designs.

Donna: Horses. Oh, my God, horses, Brooke. That is right up your alley. You on a horse--oh.

Marcus: Well-I- well, what about castles? Okay, I mean, there's that one up in Malibu, right?

Katie: Uh, Hodges' castle. We could get permission to do a photo shoot there.

Ridge: You think you could convince somebody to let us shoot there for free? Look, the campaign sounds great, but we're going to have to figure out some way to pay for it, because what you're talking about is going to be expensive, and--and in case you hadn't noticed, we're a little tapped out right now.

Brooke: Do you all mind if I talk to Ridge alone for a moment?

Donna: Sure.

Katie: I've got more information in my office I can show you.

Eric: Good. Let's take a look.

Brooke: (Sighs) Ridge, why did you have to do that? They were so excited.

Ridge: Logan, we're just getting ahead of ourselves, that's all.

Brooke: Are we?

Ridge: Look, you can talk about how you want things to be, but you also have to be realistic.

Brooke: Lower your expectations, settle for something less than what you want? What's really going on here, Ridge? Is it the campaign you have a problem with, or is it working with me?

Ridge: Logan, you have to realize that Taylor might have a problem with this.

Brooke: So Taylor might have a problem with this, but you don't have a problem? I-is that what you're telling me?

Jackie: Oh, my. I really, really like that idea. An opera box curtain full of young men, one with his tie askew and his face covered with lipstick.

Whip: Yeah.

Jackie: It's great, except that opera is a little bit stuffy, right?

Whip: Yeah, you're right.

Jackie: So why don't we, um, put earphones in my ears...

Whip: Ah!

Jackie: And maybe a streak of color in my hair.

Whip: Brilliant. Totally.

Jackie: Something really electric...

Whip: Mm-hmm.

Jackie: That will just flout convention and be a renegade you know, wild side. That's--

Whip: I-Indulge. Indulge your wild side.

Jackie: Indulge. (Laughs)

Whip: That's great. Come on. Come on. Keep going. It's awesome.

Jackie: I can't. I've got a meeting.

Whip: Oh.

Jackie: But we'll do it again, right? We work good together.

Whip: Yes, we do.

Bridget: (Giggles) Oh, with all this praise, it's probably a good time for me to ask for a raise. Hmm.

Nick: I think I can offer you a more attractive compensation package.

Bridget: More than money?

Nick: Oh, more of something. (Laughs)

Bridget: Mm. I just want more of you.

Nick: Whatever, whenever, wherever, whatever you want.

Bridget: (Laughs) I don't actually want anything. I don't need anything. I have every-- everything I could ever want.

Nick: Come here.

Bridget: Oh.

Marcus: So Ridge and Brooke are still up in there, huh?

Eric: Yes, and they could be a while.

Donna: Okay. All right. Guys, why don't we just focus on the campaign?

Katie: You know, what Ridge said really makes a lot of sense. I was just brainstorming. I wasn't thinking about the costs.

Eric: Well, we have accountants to crunch the numbers. I want the head of my P.R. department to do exactly what you're doing right now.

Katie: You can crunch the numbers any which way you like.. the fact is we don't have the money to do this right.

Marcus: Well, you really can't cut corners when you're trying to sell yourself as royalty.

Katie: You know, I was thinking. There is a way to pay for this. We could sell the company jet.

Eric: No, no, you start selling off your assets, and people start predicting your demise.

Katie: There are all different ways to spin it. We could say that the executives at Forrester are taking some cuts, because we don't want the rest of the company to have to. Or we could say that jets are passé. We're going green. We can spin it any way you want.

Eric: Bill Spencer won't let us get away with that. He'll put our names on-- on a tombstone on--on the next cover of "Eye on Fashion."

Donna: Yes, but we have to do something. My God, we--we could have a tombstone for Forrester Creations for real if we don't do something. My God, this is a chance, Eric, to save our company.

Eric: All right. See this? What is it?

Donna: It's the jet.

Eric: No. It's the royalty campaign. If you think this campaign is gonna work, then I'll give you all the money you need to do it.

Katie: Thank you. That means a lot.

Eric: I believe in you. Don't let me down.

Brooke: No, no, no. I tot--I totally get it. I do empathize, really. I can understand why Taylor would have a problem with us working together.

Ridge: It's not insecurity.

Brooke: No, it's our history. After all, we did fall in love when we created the Belief Formula. Things happen, Ridge, when we're together and pursuing the same goals, having different ideas. Okay, tell me it was a bad idea. The royalty campaign-- just say it was a bad idea.

Ridge: (Sighs)

Brooke: See? You can't. And it's really what the company needs right now to turn it around, and I think it would be good for us as well. Or we can tiptoe around each other and worry that what we're saying isn't the right thing or how we're acting and... or else we could pursue this campaign, and we could work hard together and really make it something important. Doesn't that sound better?

Ridge: Yes, it does.

Brooke: Okay, well, then why are you fighting it?

Ridge: I'm not. I just don't want to argue with you. I don't want to argue with Taylor. We have too much we want to do. We're supposed to be on our honeymoon, and now I'm staying in the guestroom.

Brooke: (Sighs) Hey, it's gonna be all right. Really, I truly believe that. I mean, I wouldn't have come back here to Forrester if I didn't. I rode all the way across town on my horse, and I would do it all over again, just to hear that one thing.

Ridge: What one thing?

Brooke: ‘I now pronounce you man and... horse?’ (Laughs)

Ridge: Logan, when you rode that horse in, you looked like you'd been mud wrestling with it. What were you doing on a horse anyway? I mean, I-I know Steffy told you some message about me meeting you some place, but--

Brooke: I know. I just--I pictured this really epic moment, and I-I wanted to remind you of what our wedding was like. And I had these great images in my head that you were gonna ride up on your motorcycle, and I was gonna just gallop across the beach and go right into your arms.

Ridge: Huh.

Brooke: I really thought you were going to be there.

Ridge: Yeah, well, I had no idea.

Brooke: I know.

Brooke: (Sighs) You know... (Sniffles) I returned to Forrester because I really need to get my life back. And I know that you're staying at Taylor’s, but you are torn, because I see you're not wearing your wedding ring...

Ridge: (Sighs)

Brooke: And you obviously have not eloped. And I know why. Because as silly and as foolish as I may be, I am still your Logan, and you will always find me irresistibly irresistible. (Giggles) It's true. Come on. Admit it. "Man and horse."

Ridge: Stop it.

Brooke: "Man and horse."

Ridge: Stop it.

Brooke: "Man and horse. Man and horse."

Ridge: Stop it.

Brooke: (Giggles) (Sighs)

Ridge: (Sighs)

Brooke: Do I know how to make an entrance or what?

Ridge: (Sighs)
