Taylor: Ridge, don't let yourself be pressured about this.
Brooke: You said you made a decision.
Brooke: We'd like to know what it is. Are you going home with Taylor, or are you coming home with me and Hope and R.J.?
Ridge: Well, actually, I'm not the one to make the next move.
Man: Ridge, how does it feel to be back on top?
Ridge: Were we ever not on top? Girls, would you meet me in my dad's office? Thank you.
Man: Jackie M. had to have you sweating a little.
Ridge: Well, actually, I thought I saw Jackie sweating a bit there. It's probably all the time she spends in bathtubs, you know, opens up the pores.
Katie: Thank you. So, um, why are we here?
Bill: Scene of the crime.
Katie: Oh, right, me getting sloshed at the bar.
Bill: Our first meeting. You think I can't be sentimental?
Katie: And then me passing out in your bed.
Bill: Maybe I'm hoping history will repeat itself.
Katie: I think that might have been a onetime opportunity. I'm trying to make a concerted effort to stay conscious in public.
Katie: I guess that night I was, uh, feeling the strain of doing the right thing.
Bill: And here I thought that came naturally to you.
Whip: I don't care what you say. We put on a better show.
Bridget: It wasn't about the show, though. It was supposed to be about the clothes.
Owen: Well, it sure wasn't about the quality.
Jackie: Well, we were apples and oranges.
Nick: The crowd loved us. We were hot. We were cooler. We didn't lose anything.
Bridget: I'm getting a drink.
Man: So how about an interview with you and Ms. Logan?
Ridge: Uh, sorry. Gonna have to do that later.
Taylor: Whew. Big night, huh?
Brooke: (Sighs) I have a feeling that the biggest thing about it has yet to happen.
Ridge: I know you both think of me as having two homes and two families, but I've been getting some good advice lately, and I now think that's a mistake.
Taylor: Good advice from whom?
Ridge: James Warwick. He's suggesting family counseling. He thinks that would be the best idea-- isolating the conflicting parties until an accord is met.
Brooke: Lock the seven of us up in a room and wait till somebody snaps?
Ridge: The conflicting parties. Now I don't have a conflict with Thomas, nor does Steffy with R.J.
Taylor: James thinks the three of us should go away somewhere?
Ridge: I love you both. I've said that since the beginning.
Taylor: You--the two of us?
Brooke: Taylor and me?
Taylor: In therapy together?
Ridge: You know, I don't know why we didn't come up with this idea a long time ago.
Taylor: Because it's crazy.
Brooke: It's never gonna work.
Owen: So why don't we just shoot it here?
Whip: Well, because it's television, Owen. You kind of need to be in the same room as the camera.
Owen: No, I'm talking about shooting it here. That way, I've got all of you guys here to back me up.
Jackie: Well, darling, they're not interested in the rest of us.
Nick: San Diego wants to see the hometown boy who's done good. Is there some sort of a problem? Outstanding warrants?
Owen: No, there isnít. I'm just not like all of you. I've never lived my life in the public eye, and I don't really want to start right now. They're gonna make a fool out of me. Look, Bridget, why don't you go with me?
Whip: Uh, no, she canít.
Bridget: Uh, uh... (Sighs) Whip has me doing these interviews in L.A.
Jackie: Darling, you know I would go with you if I could.
Pam: Well, I could go. No, I'll back you up, Owen. I'll make you plenty of good meals and make sure you're taken care of.
Owen: Pam, thank you very much. I really appreciate--
Clarke: I'll go with you, Owen. In fact, I can drive us there.
Nick: Perfect. Problem solved.
Owen: (Sighs) Okay. All right. Fine. I guess I'll go. But I'm gonna miss you.
Ridge: I want you both to listen to James, to hear him out.
Taylor: James, you know how much I appreciate your work, and I respect you, but I really think Ridge, Brooke and I, you know, we'll work out things like we always do.
James: And you've been trying to do that for how many years?
Brooke: Personally, I think it's Ridge's decision to make.
James: Well, as to who Ridge shares his intimate life with and how, I couldn't agree with you more. But as of this problem he's having with conflicting loyalties, well, let's face it, Ridge does not have two separate families. He has one very large dysfunctional family. And you two ladies, I'm afraid, are ground zero of the dysfunction.
Brooke: I never wanted to be that.
James: I'm not accusing anyone.
Taylor: Okay, um, I get your point, James. I mean, if there were a way to help Brooke break this habit of--of dangling R.J. like a hooked worm over Ridge...
Brooke: That is so unfair. You're the one who insists that Ridge keeps coming over to your house...
James: Excuse me. Time-out.
Brooke: And be there with your children...
Brooke: Who are grown!
Taylor: Oh, my God.
James: Or shall we let this escalate? Or should we just assume you ladies have made my case for me?
Katie: Did I give you the impression that I'm a good person? I'm so sorry.
Bill: Hmm. I drew my own conclusions.
Katie: I don't know if you met me at a low point or not. I think I was just making a course correction.
Bill: By walking out on your husband.
Bill: Ah, fiancť.
Katie: Right. Yeah, he was never my husband. He was actually someone else's husband. And I was wrong to think that he could ever be mine. I guess that's what I mean when I say I was feeling the strain of doing the right thing.
Bill: Then I guess it would be a mistake to say that I did the right thing tonight.
Katie: Oh? Having regrets?
Bill: Well, if I'd been living according to my principles, I would have made sure that Forrester lost the fashion challenge tonight, panned them in "Eye on Fashion" and then picked the carcass clean when Eric was forced to file bankruptcy.
Katie: I'm confused. How would that have been the right thing?
Bill: By everything I believe in. But instead, I made the selfish choice. I found something I wanted more, whether it made sense or not, whether I deserved it or not.
Bridget: I forgot to get the milk.
Nick: That's why God made all-night mini-marts.
Bridget: Why did I say yes? I do not do interviews well.
Nick: Neither do I.
Bridget: That's really not saying much. You sound terse. I sound breathy.
Nick: You don't have to do interviews if you don't want to.
Bridget: (Scoffs) Just ignore me right now. I'm sorry.
Nick: Think you're gonna have trouble sleeping tonight?
Bridget: What, are you studying to be Clarke?
Nick: I started putting one of these in my lunch pail since second grade.
Bridget: But thank you.
Nick: (Sighs) I do have to hand it to myself. I married very well. You're rich. You're making me richer. You're stupefyingly talented. I mean, what you did on that runway tonight was pretty amazing. And I know you wanted to win.
Bridget: Part of me did, yes.
Nick: I'm sorry.
Bridget: No, it's fine. I'm fine. I'm just being awful. Why did I even want to win? I don't deserve that. My father has been in this business for how many decades? Honestly, if I had won, I would have felt a lot worse than I do right now. Still, I just...
Nick: Hey, people like to win. It's not a character defect.
Bridget: I think people get what they've earned.
Nick: (Scoffs) Well, if that were the case, I wouldn't have a snowball's chance in hell of being with you. I love you. And I love our life.
Nick: Let's go home.
Bill: You're not eating.
Katie: Neither are you.
Bill: What are we doing here?
Katie: I don't know. I guess something big happened tonight, and we're just trying to figure out what to do next.
Bill: So how temporary is this, these feelings you have for me? I mean, is there some, uh, minimum daily requirement of me not being despicable that I have to live up to?
Bill: If a dog crosses the street in front of my car in the morning and I don't run it over, does that mean I can evict an old lady in a wheelchair and her orphan grandchildren in the afternoon?
Bill: So you're saying I should just go ahead and flatten the dog?
Katie: I'm saying I don't have to tell you what to do to be decent. You know.
Bill: I know you think I did something decent this evening-- not calling in my markers on the judges at the fashion challenge.
Katie: I think you did something fair. You allowed it to be an honest competition, and Forrester won.
Bill: Forrester and your Royalty campaign. Give yourself some credit.
Katie: (Sighs) It's not just me. It's--it's Eric and Ridge's designs. It's the models. It's the show. It's--
Bill: Okay, stop. Stop. I don't even think I could teach you to be to be a hard-nosed chief exec.
Bill: I don't know how smart it was letting the judges off the hook. With a Jackie M. win, I could have taken control of Forrester Creations within a month. And I doubt your good opinion of me will last even that long.
Katie: Why not?
Bill: Because if it's not the old lady and the orphans, it'll be something else.
Katie: So why do you think I like you?
Bill: That's exactly what I'm wondering. Here you've got me throwing out my old rule book just so I don't drive you away. So I guess I'm asking what the new rules are. Do I have to keep throwing away multimillion-dollar deals to keep you looking at me that way? Is that what I have to do, Katie Logan?
Brooke: Big Bear?
Ridge: James feels that would be ideal.
James: It's essential that the three of us are isolated. Listen, I have used these techniques successfully with the heads of corporations who are suing each other, with divorcing couples who are like warring with each other. I guarantee you will come out of this process with a deeper appreciation. But what you have to make your minds up before you go in is what is more important-- your families, your love for this man here or your constantly feeding your egos in public places very loudly and at every possible opportunity.
Ridge: Look, we need this, all of us. Please tell me you'll do it.
Whip: (Sighs) Now he wants financial statements.
Jackie: Well, what's the harm in that?
Whip: What--what's the harm? Jackie, it is a-- it's a talk show. It's not a-- it's not a business forum, okay? It's San Diego. They want to see a hometown surfer boy who makes good. They want to see Owen in a swimsuit, you know, preferably a small one.
Jackie: You're selling him short, Whip.
Jackie: Don't do that. He's determined to present himself well. He wants to make a good impression.
Whip: I think you're being very patient with him.
Jackie: He gives me everything that he has. What kind of ingrate would I be to complain just because he doesn't have a PHD in talk show patter? What?
Whip: Nothing. I don't know. I don't know who I like better, you who you really are or the one that I put up on that stage tonight.
Jackie: (Laughs) Well, you know what? Neither do I. Give him these, would you?
Whip: We should have won tonight.
Jackie: I don't mind. You were wonderful.
Whip: No. No. You were, Jackie. You were... (Sighs) You were wonderful the way you--you took command of that stage, you and that whole getup.
Whip: You know, you can do anything, really. I mean, you-- you can have anything. You just--I mean, you just hold out your hand, and...
Whip: You can have whatever you want.
Brooke: Bad things can happen in Big Bear.
Ridge: Oh, come on, Logan. You've always loved it there.
Brooke: I do. And I know you mean well, Ridge, but I'm not sure this is the best way to solve our problem.
Taylor: So--so what do you suggest, Brooke?
Brooke: I don't know. Are you saying you're willing to go through with this?
Taylor: How much time would we need to, uh, go through this technique you wanna do?
James: As long as it takes. I mean, if there's anything more important in your lives that you have to...
Brooke: I will do anything, of course.
Taylor: Well, I have-- I have a lot of patients, but, um, I would reschedule them.
Ridge: Thank you.
James: Excellent. We're gonna have an adventure, ladies. And I promise you, by the end of it, this veil of conflict that's been down over your lives for years will have disappeared.
Katie: You don't have to give up million-dollar deals for me, Bill.
Bill: I did tonight.
Katie: I think deep down inside you knew that it was wrong. You--you don't have to change for me, not really. You just have to look inside yourself to the person who's hiding in there.
Bill: Katie, I'll warn you again. I'm not a good person.
Katie: You did a good thing tonight.
Bill: You benefited. So did I. Does that make me good?
Katie: Maybe I just see something in you that you donít.
Bill: And maybe you're kidding yourself.
Katie: I don't think so. Look at you. You want something you've never wanted before.
Bill: That's true. You know when I knew it? When I told you I was going to take control of Forrester Creations and I asked you to run it with me and you said no.
Katie: Believe me, I wasn't being noble.
Bill: I know you werenít. You were just being you-- loyal, devoted, committed to your family and the people you care about. That's top priority with you.
Katie: Yes, it is.
Bill: I had a taste of what that can feel like tonight. I believe that being in charge is the finish line. Get there first, and you win.
Katie: What do you win?
Bill: More of the same. More than anybody else.
Katie: You know what I think? I think you don't really like that game, Bill.
Bill: Well, you're right about that. I love the game, Katie. It's my life.
Katie: It doesn't have to be.
Bill: I'm not so sure.
Katie: Give yourself a chance.
Bill: When I say that I want something, I mean that I want it in my name-- money, property, Forrester. But I don't want you in that way. I want you under my eyes. I want you in my arms. Maybe you look like a- a doorway to someplace I've never been, to feelings that I've never experienced. I know you're going to hurt me. That's right, it can be done. You see, I'm going to go about this all wrong, and then I'm gonna drive you away. I'm gonna lose you. And don't tell me I wonít. And then I'll close up like a fist. And knowing all that, I still find myself thinking... I need you, Katie Logan. And I've never needed anybody.
