Brooke: Katie, we don't want to make you choose between Bill and us.
Donna: Oh, Katie. How can there even be a choice? This man is hurting your family.
Katie: You haven't heard a word I've said. You just can't believe that Bill would actually want to have a future with me.
Brooke: That's what he wants you to think.
Donna: That DVD is a call to war.
Katie: By his father, not by Bill. Come on, I would never let anything come between us. I'm loyal to you.
Donna: And a man like Bill Spencer could never divide us if we stood united.
Brooke: But his father's wishes are starting to come true. We're being pulled apart.
Donna: He is not just trying to steal our company. He is trying to steal you, too.
Bridget: You know, maybe Stephanie was just having a bad day. When goes home and thinks about it, she'll come back to work.
Nick: "Bad day"? How do I explain that to our distributors?
Whip: Yeah, we can put a positive spin on her leaving, but without Stephanie...
Owen: Then we're kind of up a creek.
Jackie: Guys, I've got news. I know what Stephanie resigned. (Sighs) She had a stroke.
Bridget: Oh, no.
Pam: She told you?
Jackie: She didn't say a word. She wouldn’t. Taylor did.
Nick: Pam? Why wouldn't you tell us about this?
Pam: Have you met my sister, Nick? She is a very proud woman.
Whip: Nick, Stephanie’s greatest fear is being vulnerable, okay? She wouldn't want to appear weak in front of all of us.
Bridget: (Sighs) I knew something was wrong. I knew it. She seemed confused a lot. She kept dropping that coffee cup.
Nick: She also-- her behavior, lateness- it all makes sense now.
Jackie: It was just a minor stroke, but Stephanie would just rather leave than have any of us pity her.
Owen: I know. And she probably felt that she didn't have any more to contribute.
Nick: Well, I think it's up to us to convince her otherwise then.
Jackie: Is that a gleam in your eye? Do you have a plan?
Nick: Whip, you tell those sewers to expect a rush order. Everybody else clear their schedules. We're gonna go see Stephanie.
Jackie: To say what, exactly?
Nick: Well, you can leave that to me.
Taylor: I don't want you going by yourself.
Taylor: Because. Because I don't want you going by yourself. Because I love you. I--look, I-- you're not gonna be burden on me. I-I don't care if you ignore me 24/7. I don't care if you can't remember my damn name. I am not going to let you go by yourself.
Ridge: You'll get your payment on time, Michael. Tell your loan officers that we sold some property. You'll get the full quarter's payment-- $25 million. Good-bye.
Ridge: What are you doing here?
Bill: Just checkin' in on my investment.
Ridge: This company will never be yours.
Bill: Oh, never is a long, long time, Ridge. Boy, it must be tough, uh, gettin' those creative juices flowing with the bank breathing down your neck.
Ridge: At least I know how to be creative, Bill. You only know how to destroy.
Bill: Well, I'm not the one who ran a successful fashion house into the ground. You might want to consider that before you judge me, because frankly, I'm your only hope.
Katie: Bill would never do anything to come between us because he knows how much you mean to me.
Donna: Every day you drift further away.
Katie: That's the way you see it, because I won't let him go when you want me to. You're convinced that he wants Forrester Creations because of some twisted vendetta of his father's, but he doesn’t. He wants Forrester to survive. He wants to help.
Brooke: I think you really believe that.
Katie: I do believe it. I believe in him.
Donna: Katie, he has been trying to get to Forrester and--and every turn, he has been blocked.
Brooke: That's right. But now he's found his way in through you, fueling this notion that you're like Cinderella and we're your evil blonde sisters...
Brooke: That cast you aside.
Donna: He's turning you against us.
Brooke: We're like the enemy now.
Katie: No! Y-you're not the enemy. You never could be, because I love you, and I respect you, and I'm just asking you to do the same for me.
Donna: Oh, Katie, many men will love you. But they will come, and they will go. We'll always be your sisters. We're gonna always have your back.
Brooke: We used to read you stories when you were little. And you were always scared of the big, bad wolf. Well, now you're living with him.
Brooke: Yes, he talks sweet, and he promises you things like this beach house, the moon, the stars. But, Katie, underneath all that, he's really the big, bad wolf. Please. I'm begging you. Please, don't let him tear us apart.
Ridge: This company's faced troubles before. We've always come out on top.
Bill: Now there's stiff competition, mountains of debt.
Ridge: If you were so confident, you wouldn't be using Katie. You wouldn't be pitting her against her own sisters.
Bill: Katie has gotten to me, Ridge, you know, the way Brooke got to you. Can't we try and get along? We might all be family one day.
Ridge: I don't think that's ever gonna happen, Bill, because you don't give a damn about anyone but yourself. And sooner or later, Katie’s gonna realize that.
Katie: Don't you think that I've had doubts? Questioned his sincerity? I've confronted him. I've demanded answers.
Brooke: And he says all the right things.
Katie: Yes, he does. And he means them.
Donna: Does he? I--look at his actions.
Brooke: Katie, we hear what we want to hear. That's human nature.
Donna: Look, can a man who--who truly loves you put you in this position in conflict with your--your own sisters?
Katie: It's only that way because you make it that way. I-If this were about revenge, do you think that he'd be wasting his time with me? Do you think that he would be hoping to keep everyone on at Forrester Creations? No. He would do everything in his power to bring Eric and Ridge down. I-If this were about revenge, he would throw us all out of the company, replace everyone with his own people, and we'd be out on the streets, me included. That's what his father wanted him to do. But that's not what Bill wants. Bill wants to save the company. I don't know why you can't see that. Please. I care so deeply for this man. If you want to help me, you'll give him a chance.
Taylor: Why won't you let me just help?
Stephanie: Because I'm an adult. Because I have managed to live my life on my own. I even raised a family. I'm a survivor, Taylor.
Taylor: That's exactly my point. Those are all the things you accomplished, you know, just as much over at Jackie M.
Stephanie: Yes, in spite of all those crazy people over there.
Stephanie: Oh, God, I hope that's the car.
Taylor: Okay, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
Stephanie: "Wait. Wait."
(Car doors shutting)
Taylor: This is why I need to go help you get settled.
Stephanie: No. No, it isn’t.
Taylor: Yes, this is what--
Bridget: Ready? Okay.
Pam: (Blowing in megaphone)
All: (Chanting) S-T-E-P-H-A-N-I-E! S-T-E-P-H-A-N-I-E! S-T-E-P-H-A-N-I-E!
Stephanie: If this is your new line, you'd better rethink it.
Nick: There's a new team in town, haven't you heard?
Nick: Go long, Owen. Go long!
Whip: Go, go, go, go. (Whistle blows)
Bridget: Go, Owen! Whoo!
Taylor: Hey, hey, don't play ball in the house!
Taylor: Oh, my God. You break it, you buy it.
Nick: We need a little practice in some areas.
Jackie: Oh, but doesn't he look adorable? Doesn't he?
Nick: Mother, focus.
Jackie: Okay, sorry, sorry!
Bridget: Come on. Come cheer with us. Ready? Okay?
Stephanie: This is no way to run a business.
Owen: We are the number-one fans of an unbeatable team, Stephanie.
Jackie: One that has got guts and spirit!
Owen: Yes, and a champion with a heart!
Nick: A team that's been down before. A team that backs each other up.
Nick: A team that stands at the last count.
Pam: Yeah, we love our team!
Nick: Come on! Come on!
Bridget: We never give up on it!
Whip: That's why we're here. Whoo-hoo!
Bridget: Whoo! Whoo! Whoo!
Bridget: Because we have a dream team!
Nick: Dream team's missing our fearless leader, and we want her back. And how do we spell that leader's name?
All: S-T-E-P-H-A-N-I-E! S-T-E-P-H-A-N-I-E!
Whip: We love you!
Whip: In the house!
Ridge: Bill, you want a fight, you got it. But why don't you leave Katie out of it?
Bill: Because I genuinely care for her. Hell, you married the same woman three, four--well, several times, right? So you should know better than anyone that when you really click with somebody, you can't just walk away.
Ridge: Boy, you just have to win at any cost, don't you, even if it means hurting an innocent woman?
Bill: Katie's important to me. And whether you believe it or not, I'm trying to save your sinking ship. I'm practically giving you a blank check.
Ridge: Oh, with one hand. But there's a knife in the other one, Bill. It wants to stab us in the back, because you will not be happy until we're ruined.
Bill: All right, I am tired of trying to help you help yourself. If you're having trouble raising those millions, give me a call. I'll give you a fair price for the Forrester mansion. Could be a nice second home for Katie and me.
Brooke: Katie, you believe that Bill loves you. And for your sake, we'd love to believe that, too. But he is a man with an agenda.
Katie: You only think that because of his father's DVD.
Donna: No. No, that's only the final proof. Katie, when... (Sighs) when Bill first came to town, he--he did the same thing to me that he's doing to you. Look, he tried to-- he tried to lure me into his life. And my being married only made the conquest sweeter. It--he was so persistent. He didn't want me, Katie. He just wanted to destroy Eric using any means possible.
Brooke: He's doing exactly what his father told him to do.
Katie: I don't care what happened back then. Bill's changed since he's come to town. It--it hurts me. It hurts that there's nothing I can say to convince you. You just refuse to believe that he actually wants a future with me.
Brooke: I'm sorry, Katie. But Bill knows that our biggest vulnerability isn't this business. It's you, our sweet sister.
Taylor: I don't think they're gonna let you throw the towel in on this game.
Pam: Everybody, uh, knows about the stroke, Steph.
Stephanie: Yes, Pam.
Pam: It wasn't me.
Stephanie: And knowing that, now you have to understand. I can't-- look, this is a fabulous, wonderful team. But I can't even-- I can't use a pen much less carry the ball for you.
Whip: Okay, look. Listen, you couldn't take my hand when you resigned last time, so I'm gonna take yours.
Stephanie: No, don--
Whip: With this handshake, we pledge to help you recover.
Whip: We're gonna do whatever it takes.
Bridget: And you know that I will help you with rehabilitation. We all will. We want to support you every way we can.
Owen: Look, you don't have to battle this alone, Stephanie, not with us by your side.
Pam: They all may be crazy...
Pam: But they're crazy about you!
Jackie: It's true. You're one of us, Stephanie, forever.
Owen: And we never let a team member go without a fight.
Nick: You heard enough? 'Cause we got more outfits and more cheers.
Stephanie: No, no, no, no. Don't do anything. No, no, no. You just don't seem to understand. I-I-I can't do this physically. I'm falling apart.
Jackie: But we were falling apart, Stephanie. But what did you do? You came in. You grabbed our company, and you fixed it. You were there for us 110%. Now let us be there for you 110%.
Stephanie: It's just made me so angry that this whole thing has happened.
Whip: That's because you've been struggling on your own.
Bridget: Let us help you. We want to fill your heart with hope. We want to make you smile. Let us do this.
Owen: Come on. Lean on our shoulders the way that we leaned on yours. Our shoulders are very strong.
Whip: We won't let you down.
Pam: Look, let them all be your reason to fight, Steph.
Stephanie: Why are you pushing me like this, Jackie?
Jackie: You matter to us. All we want is to see you healthy and--and back to being that bossy...
Jackie: Stubborn, glorious self. Nicky, please.
Nick: Are we Jackie M.? Yes, we are. But we're a lot more than that. We're family. And this family just seems incomplete without you. And how do we spell that name?
Stephanie: Oh, no.
All: S-T-E-P-H-A-N-I-E! Whoo! S-T-E-P-H-A-N-I-E!
Whip: Oh, ho!
All: S-T-E-P-H-A-N-I-E! Whoo! S-T-E-P-H-A-N-I-E!
Katie: How can I convince you that Bill is not a monster?
Brooke: I have a great idea. Just tell him to back away from Forrester, and if he does, that means he loves you.
Katie: (Scoffs) God.
Donna: We don't want his money. We--we want our sister back.
Brooke: Katie, please. Don't fall for this man.
Bill: I think it's a little late for that. I'm guessing you're not the welcome wagon.
Katie: They were just looking out for me. They love me, and I love them, and they just want what's best for me.
Brooke: We heard your father on the DVD. We know what's going on here. This is all about revenge. Well, Katie is not a part of your vendetta. And you've used her long enough. She's coming home with us where she belongs. Tell him, Katie. Tell him his hold on you is over.
Whip: So does this mean you're coming back? I mean, it'd be a shame to break up the team.
Stephanie: Look, this-- (Sighs) You know, I did at one time, have a wonderful, full life. It's true... (Laughs) you know, until my ex-husband forced me out of the business...
Stephanie: Made me feel inadequate, unwanted, unneeded, and it's true. I shut down, and you came along, gave me a second chance. My old enemy extended a hand.
Nick: And you cursed me. She cursed me, you know.
Stephanie: Yes, I did.
Nick: She cursed me. You cursed me.
Stephanie: I did. And you--I did, but you--you didn't turn away. You took me in and I-I admit, I thought that that first day with-- your mother would laugh us out of the office, but she didn't shut the door in my face.
Jackie: I did sleep with my eyes open for the first week, though.
Nick: Yep, that's what she did.
Stephanie: Smart. You taught me a lot about forgiveness, Jackie, and I appreciate that.
Jackie: Well, it's not fair to hold the past against somebody, is it? It's about the present. It's about the here and the now.
Jackie: And right now, our focus is on you.
Pam: And, Steph, you know, it's great that you're a proud person, but don't let your pride stand in the way of this.
Stephanie: Honey, I am supposed to be the older sister with all the advice. Look, let's be realistic. This is all wonderful and charming, okay? The recovery's going to take months. You don't have time for that.
Nick: Get over it. That's life. We'll be there for you.
Bridget: Are you kidding me? You know, if you drop that coffee cup again, one of us is gonna pick it up.
Bridget: If you're weak one day, w-we're gonna pick up your slack.
Owen: We will. That's right.
Whip: Exactly. If you lose your grip, your words, your momentum, anything like that, we're gonna all be here to pick up the pieces.
Bridget: We're all here for you.
Whip: So, um, should we reserve your parking space, or can I have it?
Nick: I'd take it, but I already have the best one.
Jackie: That's true.
Bridget: Oh, he does. It's so annoying.
Stephanie: I know. (Sighs) I don't know how this has come about. I fall into this bucket of you-know-what, and I come up smelling like a rose here. Honestly, this is just extraordinary. This whole motley group of people somehow works in this extraordinary experiment, and I appreciate your kindness, your generosity. Honestly, it's--you've been wonderful to me. Uh, you know that this stroke-- I can see that you understand this stroke has just knocked me right on my you-know-what. And you've come over here today and picked me up and put me right back on my feet, so...
Stephanie: Oh, I don't know. I mean, you want me to be the leader of the pack? Who the hell am I to say no?
Bridget: (Gasps) Whoo!
Whip: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
Owen: Shh, shh, shh, shh.
Nick: Stephanie, as the, uh, coach of this team, I would love to welcome you back with open arms, but, um... you're gonna have to do the cheer with us.
Stephanie: Oh, no.
Pam: Yes. Yes.
Stephanie: Oh, no, no, no, no.
Stephanie: A cheerleader I'm not. No.
Stephanie: No, no, no, no.
All: S-T- E- P-H-A-N-I-E!
Nick: Come on. I know.
Pam: Come on, Steph. You can do it.
Nick: Come on, now. You got it. Come on.
Whip: One more.
Stephanie and all: S-T-E-P-H-A-N-I-E!
