Whip: The sales are gonna continue to skyrocket as the result of this Indulge campaign.
Clarke: Well, we've bested the fashion master Eric Forrester. Nobody's been able to do that.
Whip: Yeah, well, we've only just begun. I'm glad to take this campaign to a whole new level.
Jackie: Oh, well, judging by my getup, I can only imagine how wild it's going to get.
Whip: Oh. Oh, it's gonna get wild, Jackie. Believe me. So you, uh, you are the beast mistress. This is your jungle. It is every woman's fantasy to tame the wild beast.
Jackie: Mm-hmm. Yeah, well, I'm ready to tame the beast...
Jackie: But pray, where is this beast?
Whip: Bring in the beast.
Pam: Bring in the beast.
Pam: Well, you certainly are the cat's meow.
Clarke: Well, quick, somebody call animal control.
Owen: Ha ha ha. Come on, really, seriously, isn't this a little much? Why do I have to be the beast?
Eric: How many scenes?
Marcus: We did three, Eric.
Eric: No, no, no. You got--we don't have to-- you--only three?
Donna: The Logan sisters-- the new face of Forrester.
Brooke: The royal campaign is a very inspired idea, Katie, and I think it's just what we need to reinvigorate Forrester.
Katie: Oh, I hope so.
Brooke: It's gonna be great.
Katie: We've put all our resources into this. We really need it to work. I mean, what if it doesn't?
Donna: We can do our best. That's all we can ask for.
Ridge: Brio's ready to get started.
Katie: Okay. Let's see what we're wearing.
Ridge: How do you feel?
Brooke: Uh, uh, uh, gosh. I haven't done a photo shoot in a long time, so I feel kind of nervous.
Ridge: Oh, you're gonna be just fine.
Brooke: Well, just in case, how's this royal pose? (Laughs) No? Okay, how about this one?
Brooke: I don't know! (Laughs)
Ridge: Definitely not that one.
Brooke: Not that one?
Ridge: What a goofball you are.
Taylor: Oh, my gosh. All of that success-- you brought that to Jackie M. I knew you would.
Stephanie: Uh, sales have tripled. (Laughs)
Taylor: See? See? That's wonderful. That's amazing. You've got to be thrilled with yourself.
Stephanie: Oh, I am. I-I am. (Sighs)
Taylor: Ridge said that things are not going very well financially over there and he and Eric are having to work around the clock to try to wade through the mess.
Stephanie: How's everything going with the two of you?
Taylor: Oh, you mean, since the, uh, supposed wedding? I am going to remain positive. I think it's a good sign that Ridge wanted to stay here. I think that's a good sign. Although, I'm going to move him out in the pool house.
Stephanie: Well, you better watch out...
Stephanie: Because that means Brooke will start circling around. She always does.
Steffy: Oh, she isn't just circling. I heard she's back at Forrester Creations.
Taylor: She's back at the office? Since when?
Steffy: Today-- a few hours ago.
Stephanie: What happened to the leave of absence?
Steffy: Well, she said she came back due to the downward spiral at Forrester, but I think she just wants to spend more time with Dad.
Stephanie: Well, don't you get complacent about this. You better think of some sort of strategy how to handle the whole thing.
Stephanie: She's back working with Ridge? What does that tell you?
Steffy: Grandma's right. It isn't a coincidence, Mom.
Taylor: Look, you know how much the company means to Ridge and Eric. If Brooke wants to go over there and act like she has some kind of talent to contribute, fine, let her do it. More power to her.
Stephanie: Wait a minute. This has nothing to do with getting the company back on its feet.
Stephanie: It has everything to do with Ridge.
Steffy: And now she's more involved in the company than ever before.
Stephanie: How? What do you mean?
Steffy: Uh, Forrester has this new ad campaign called Royalty featuring the Logan sisters as a-a symbol of elegance and class. Are you kidding me?
Taylor: The Logans as the royal face of Forrester?
Steffy: Look, I'm happy I'm off the hook as a model, but still.
Stephanie: Wait a minute. I created the whole image for Forrester. I cultivated the sophistication and style and class. You--you--you--you're telling me that these three-- these three girls from the valley are this-- in this new ad campaign? They're--they're going to call themselves Forrester royalty?
Owen: Okay, I feel like this is a joke and I'm the brunt of it.
Jackie: Oh, no, darling. It's just a photo shoot. It's just fun. I mean, look at me dressed up in this silly safari outfit.
Owen: Yeah, look at you. My god, you look-- you look gorgeous. You look hot. Me, on the other hand, I look like a total dweeb.
Whip: No, no, no, no, no. Look. Come on. You look great. It's gonna be fantastic. Trust me.
Owen: (Sighs) Come on. You know what? Being her lover in the bathtub-- that's one thing. But dressing me up like--like a lion cub or whatever this is, it's--
Whip: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. You're flesh waiting to be devoured by your cougar.
Jackie: And I will devour you. (Giggles)
Owen: Okay. Well, I guess we have made a little bit of money...
Owen: With this whole new image that you came up with, and, uh, you have captured the attention of the whole fashion world. Look, okay, I'll do this for you, and I am getting the photo approval, and not one picture is gonna go out without Jackie and my okay.
Whip: Absolutely. Let's give it a try, okay? Have fun with it.
Jackie: Thank you, my little cub. No kissing--lipstick. Thank you.
Brio: Okay, that's beautiful.
Brio: That's beautiful. Okay, tilt your head just a little. Great. Beautiful. Just like that. Just like that. Can you lean in? Can you lean in a little more? Smile. A little more sexy. That's great. Gorgeous. Oh, you guys are perfect. Beautiful.
Brio: That's perfect. Beautiful.
Brio: Okay. Beautiful. Let's take five.
Eric: All right.
Donna: So what do you think?
Marcus: You make one hell of a queen, Mom.
Donna: Oh, why thank you, prince.
Marcus: (Making kissing noises)
Brooke: (Sighs) You're impressed? Admit it.
Ridge: Captivated. You look very beautiful-- all three of you do.
Brooke: I'm Queen Guinevere to your Lancelot.
Ridge: Really? So am I supposed to ride up on my horse and save you now?
Brooke: No. That is my job, remember?
Ridge: Hmm. Yeah.
Taylor: So what are your thoughts on this Royalty campaign?
Stephanie: Well, it bothers me, and I-I just-- and--and it shouldn’t. I know that.
Taylor: Oh, come on. It's completely understandable under the circumstances.
Stephanie: Well, you know, I-I-I-I've sort of moved on and am making a life of my own. I've distanced myself from the company. And I'm really proud of what I've done, what I've accomplished over at Jackie M.
Taylor: As you should be.
Stephanie: Well, then, why does it bother me so much?
Taylor: Because... because this is a part of you, Stephanie. This is who you are. It's who you'll always be. This is your company. This is your baby. It's like it's one of your kids or something.
Stephanie: (Sighs) Yeah. (Laughs) You spend your life making a company, creating it, building it and--and crafting its image. And--and these girls will come in from the valley and they act as though it's theirs and... (Sighs) What the hell do they know about class?
Taylor: Well, look at it for exactly what it is. It's--it's an ad campaign. Everybody knows what an ad campaign is. It's just a fake image.
Stephanie: No, it's not.
Taylor: They know that.
Stephanie: It's more than that.
Taylor: (Sighs) I know. I know, and I understand why you're upset. I just don't want you getting pulled into this and dragged down with the Forrester fray.
Stephanie: You're right. I should let go. It's just that it calls me. They act as though they're doing the company a favor. Brooke's riding in to save the day. They're the ones that dragged the whole thing down in the first place. I mean, they-- (Sighs) The day Eric married Donna, boy, the whole place went to hell in a hand basket.
Pam: Uh, uh, have you ever done any modeling, "Clarke-y"?
Clarke: Uh, me? No.
Pam: Oh, too bad. I think you'd look kind of cute in a Speedo and some fake fur. (Laughs) I like a hairy man.
Clarke: Um, you know, everybody, I-I got a little bit of news-- uh, some gossip, actually, that I think you'll all be interested in. Uh, apparently, Forrester is launching a new campaign to counter Indulge.
Jackie: Really? How?
Jackie: They don't have any money.
Owen: Yeah, they're running fumes as it is.
Clarke: Uh, from what I hear, it's jet fumes. Eric sold his jet to pay for the campaign.
Pam: (Gasps) Really?
Owen: Oh, my gosh. The old man loves that jet.
Whip: It shows how dire things really are. What's their angle?
Clarke: It's called Royalty-- timeless, but new, elegant, but provocative. And get this-- the Logan sisters are starring in the campaign.
Jackie: Oh, my. Stephanie is not going to like that. I mean, she's the one that people associate with that company. Although, I must say, I think it's quite daring.
Whip: Well, it's an interesting concept, I'll give you that, but what we're going for i-is something completely different. We're--we're capturing the imagination of the public far more than some--some royal, old-fashioned image, you know, no matter how "contemporary" they try to make it. And as far as provocative goes, please. We have the patent on that. Everybody is gonna be wondering, what is Jackie M. gonna do next? I mean, how far will they go?
Jackie: Yeah. I hope you're right. Because one thing I've learned-- never underestimate the power of Forrester Creations.
Brio: Beautiful. Just like that. Just like that. Oh, that's great, you guys.
Brio: This is great. Oh, you guys are perfect. Beautiful. Beautiful.
Brio: Chin up just a little. Beautiful. Beautiful. Okay, guys, come in closer just a little. That's great. Beautiful. Just like that. Just like that. Can you lean in? Lean in a little more. Oh, that's great, you guys. Beautiful. Just like that. Just like that. Oh, that's great, you guys.
Brio: Okay. That's a wrap, ladies.
Eric: Now you have everything you need?
Brio: I think you'll be very pleased, Eric.
Eric: Okay. I'm sure I will be. Thank you.
Brooke: Oh, great. That's perfect.
Katie: Well, Brio seemed very enthusiastic. I think that's a good sign.
Marcus: Well, I sneaked a peek at some earlier shots, and they're bad. (Laughs) Meaning they're really good.
Katie: Oh, good.
Brooke: Oh, good. Bad.
Brooke: Good. Yeah, I get it.
Katie: Gotcha. Well, yeah, I just hope we can reclaim, uh, the top spot from Jackie M.
Eric: We will.
Ridge: Well, time will tell, huh?
Katie: Well, we have a lot riding on this. Thank you so much for coming back. We couldn't have done this without you.
Eric: No, we couldn't have. I thank you, too. It's such a relief to have you back. I mean it.
Brooke: Well, this is where I need to be. Sometimes you don't realize what you have until it's gone. Forrester is a very special place, and we lost our way a little bit, but now that we're all rallying together, I really think that we can restore Forrester to its greatness.
Eric: Mm. From your mouth to God's ears.
Steffy: I hope you're not letting it get to you that Brooke’s working with Dad again.
Taylor: Hmm? Oh, no. No. No, I'm not worried.
Steffy: You're not?
Taylor: No. I think your father has good sense, a lot more good sense than Brooke has.
Steffy: Good. I just wouldn't let your guard down where Brooke’s concerned.
Taylor: Sweetheart, I know Brooke. I know that she is not going to give up on your father very easily.
Steffy: Uh, she rode a horse into your wedding.
Taylor: Mm-hmm. But you forget that I have been dealing with her for years, Steffy. I know what she's capable of. I know the kind of games she plays. And I'm up for fighting her if I have to. But I don't think I'm gonna have to do that...
Taylor: Because your father knows where he's safe and he feels happiest, and it's here at home with us. And in the end, he's gonna realize that he can't live without us.
Steffy: I hope so. I do.
Taylor: Come here.
Jackie: Oh, my. That photo shoot was so fun! (Laughs) But I am exhausted. I think I need a break.
Owen: Yeah. And I could definitely use a stiff drink to try to forget about what just happened.
Owen: The things that I do for you...
Jackie: I'll thank you later.
Owen: All right.
Whip: Miss Jackie.
Whip: Come check a look at this.
Jackie: Oh. Oh.
Whip: Oh, I don't know what that magic "it" factor is that you've got, but it is there in spades.
Jackie: (Laughs) Oh, will you stop? You'll make me blush.
Whip: Oh. No, no. Look. The camera loves you! You eat it up. And you love it right back.
Eric: Wow, these are stunning. They're absolutely stunning.
Donna: Oh, honey bear, I so hoped that we would make you proud.
Eric: (Laughs) Oh, you made me proud. You made me absolutely proud.
Eric: (Making kissing noises) Nice job.
Brooke: So what do you think, Ridge?
Ridge: The pictures are exactly what we were going for. It's a far cry from the campy stuff they're doing over at Jackie M.
Eric: It's a whole new image for Forrester Creations-- the three Logan women out front.
Brooke: I think we need to congratulate Katie on such a wonderful idea.
Katie: Well, thank you, but we still have a ways to go before we turn things around.
Eric: I don't know. It's fresh and it's new, and it's the perfect counterpunch to the Indulge campaign.
Donna: Yes. Does anyone else think that they're pushing it just a little too far?
Katie: I do. It's not gonna last.
Eric: Forrester is elegant, and it's timeless. It's gonna give us a whole fresh start.
Ridge: It starts with the image. But we have to follow through with the designs. So what do you say, Dad? Should we get to it?
Eric: (Laughs) Yeah, I think we should. We have a lot of work to do. I'm absolutely inspired, ladies. Thank you very much. You've set a real hallmark for us.
Eric: This is gonna be a fresh start for Forrester Creations. You'll see.
Eric: Proud of you.
Brooke: Well... (Sighs) we did good.
Katie: It's a start.
Donna: Yes, but it's fresh and it's new, and it could be the start of our comeback.
Stephanie: So here you are, "the comeback kids"? Or should I call you the new Forrester royalty?
Brooke: What are you doing here, Stephanie?
Stephanie: Well, I heard about the ad campaign, and I thought I'd better come over.
Donna: Why? It doesn't involve you.
Stephanie: I may no longer be here, but everything at Forrester involves me.
Katie: You know what? You're kind of right about that, Stephanie, which is why we need a whole new image.
Stephanie: (Laughs) And how do you three think you're gonna get away with calling yourselves Forrester royalty? I mean, come on. Your behavior is far from having been regal. Sleeping your way through the family-- I'd hardly call that noble.
Brooke: We're all aware of your opinions of us. So let's not dwell on that, okay? But I must tell you royalty is a state of mind. It's not about money. It's not about bloodlines. It's about how you choose to live your life. It's about women coming into their own. It's about mothers, daughters, sisters. It's about liberation, helping others. That is what we're trying to do here at Forrester Creations. That's what we're doing with the campaign, and that is our image, Stephanie. So don't you dare try to tell us that we can't be royalty. Because we can and we are.
