Brooke: So what do you think? Can you do that? You'll be able to be loyal to us, to your family, over anybody else?
Katie: (Chuckles) My God.
Bill: It's not every day you become C.E.O. of a major fashion house. I thought we should celebrate.
Katie: You did all this?
Bill: You inspire me.
Katie: Mm. (Chuckles)
Bill: Just for the record, I make a mean Moroccan chicken tagine.
Katie: (Chuckles) Is there anything you can't do?
Bill: Not if it's something I can do for you.
Bill: I love that smile.
Katie: (Chuckles) I love that you went through all this trouble.
Bill: Tip of the iceberg, sweetheart. I have something even more special in mind for you tonight.
Ridge: Kids tucked in?
Brooke: Yep. R.J. wanted his daddy to read him a story, but I told him that you were really tired and had a hard day. So...
Brooke: He said he would take a rain check. Can you believe that? That little boy said "rain check." (Giggles)
Ridge: (Sighs) I never thought I'd see the day, Logan. All those years of hard work. Everything Dad, you, the whole family did to make Forrester Creations one of the most successful, most respected fashion houses in the world has come to this. The company we love, a subsidiary of Spencer Publications with your kid sister as our C.E.O. (Sighs) Oh, my God, Logan. If it's this difficult for me to accept, imagine what it must be like for my dad.
Donna: I'm so sorry. I-I would do and give anything if I could. I--
Eric: So would I. So would we all. But tomorrow, uh, somebody else will be sitting behind this desk, and Forrester Creations will be changed forever.
Donna: I hate the thought of it as much as you do. But at least we're all still here. And your influence will continue to be felt.
Eric: Through my designs, yeah. But Katie’s the new C.E.O. of Forrester now. I'm sure that she and Spencer are celebrating as we speak.
Katie: Thank you.
Bill: You're welcome.
Katie: So, Mr. Spencer, I think a toast is in order.
Bill: Absolutely. To the newest, smartest, sexiest C.E.O. in the country.
Katie: Actually, I was going to toast to you. It's not every day a man realizes his dream. You've wanted Forrester Creations for a long time. Now you have it.
Bill: But you know what? Somewhere along the way, um, acquiring Forrester Creations ceased to be the reason I got out of bed every morning. You became that motivation.
Katie: (Chuckles) What happened today must be a huge rush for you.
Bill: It is. But it wouldn't be nearly as satisfying if I didn't have you to share it with.
Donna: Honey, it's late. Can--can we just go home, please? Just finish this tomorrow, and Katie--Katie won't mind.
Eric: Uh, you don't think so? Because I-I'd really hate to get off on the wrong foot with our new C.E.O.
Donna: Look, she knows how hard this is for you and for all of us, and she's not gonna make it more difficult.
Eric: You have a lot of faith in her, don't you?
Donna: Yeah, I do. And, you know what? You're--you're not gonna have to make these-- these enormous quarterly payments anymore. As of today, you are officially pressure-free. I-I-I mean, you can focus on designing-- designing and enjoying your life.
Eric: So I should-- I should look on the bright side, huh?
Donna: Yeah. I just--I don't want you to think that this is the end, because it's not. I mean, besides the company changing hands, everything is really pretty much the same around here.
Donna: The family's by your side, and your lovely wife is by your side. And she's loving you and encouraging you and supporting you, just like you've always been there for me when I needed you. Oh, Eric. Eric, money and--and power, it's just fleeting. But what you and I have, it's for all time.
Bill: You don't believe me?
Katie: If you weren't a business tycoon, you would be a gourmet chef?
Bill: Yes. Did I not prepare this entire meal from scratch?
Katie: You did, and I'm very impressed. I can't get over it.
Bill: Well, tonight's a very special evening, in more ways than one. So I wanted to start it off with something, uh, memorable.
Katie: As if what happened earlier wasn't memorable enough? I keep on thinking about what I've gotten myself into. Or should I say what you've gotten me into?
Bill: Oh, come on now. You're as excited about this new chapter in your life as I am. It's about time you had an opportunity to shine.
Katie: Or fall flat on my face.
Bill: You're not gonna fall flat on your face. You are going to be incredibly successful. I have total confidence in you and 110% trust.
Brooke: I trust my sister, Ridge. Not only has she pledged us her loyalty, but she's fine with being the public face of Forrester and letting you, me and Eric run the business from the sidelines. I happen to think that this arrangement could work.
Ridge: Well, I'd like to believe that, too, if Spencer didn't have so damn much sway with her.
Brooke: It doesn't mean we shouldn't believe in her. Katie's given us her word. And to Katie, that's everything.
Ridge: Yeah, well, I hope so. But she doesn't just work with the guy. She lives with him, too. And you better believe he's gonna use that to his full advantage. Make no mistake, Logan... (Sighs) Spencer is the real boss here. And that puts Katie right smack in the middle between her family, the pledge she made to us, and a guy she thinks she's in love with who can't be trusted. If that isn't an impossible situation, I don't know what is.
Brooke: I think Katie’s more infatuated with Bill. He's like no man she's ever known. And he intrigues her. But whatever her feelings are for Bill, I know how much family means to her, just as I know how much it meant to you when Eric put you in charge of the company.
Ridge: Look, as much as I wish things were different, I realize I have to deal with them as they are. (Sighs) And you know something, Logan? With you by my side, I think I can do that. In fact, with you by my side, I think I can get through anything.
Eric: Well, it's gonna be all over the news tomorrow, if it's not already. Gonna be a million questions to answer.
Donna: None of which you're looking forward to answering.
Eric: No. No, I'm not. Although, the company's no longer mine. Spencer can handle the press. I'm just a designer now.
Donna: Oh, Eric. You will never be just a designer, okay? (Chuckles) you are Forrester Creations. I-I don't care who owns this company. You are Forrester.
Donna: And I-I-- you know, I get the feeling that everything is just gonna work out.
Donna: Yeah, because of Katie. Look, I-I truly believe that she is gonna come through for us. And I think you should, too.
Katie: Mm. (Sighs) You can be awfully charming when you want to be.
Bill: You mean when I'm not ruthlessly gobbling up...
Bill: Family businesses in my never-ending quest for financial global domination?
Katie: Yeah. When you're not doing that.
Katie: Who knew you had this soft, cuddly side?
Bill: Wait a minute now. This is the dark knight you're talking to, all right?
Katie: Oh, I'm sorry. I forgot. I know you're not as ruthless as your reputation. Look how you acted today with Eric and Ridge and my sisters. You took what was a very difficult day and you could have made it worse, but you didn’t.
Bill: Well, maybe that's because I was so excited for you finally having an opportunity to live up to your full potential.
Katie: You really believe in me that much?
Bill: Would I have made you C.E.O. if I didn't?
Katie: (Chuckles) Well, maybe you just feel sorry for me, like everyone thinks. "Poor little Katie Logan. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride." (Chuckles)
Bill: You know, it's funny you should say that. I was gonna do this later in front of the fireplace with champagne and... but now feels right.
Katie: A heart?
Bill: Open it... the way you've opened mine.
Donna: I put the other boxes in Ridge's office for safekeeping.
Donna: Is this everything?
Eric: (Sighs) It's a lifetime. It's a lifetime of memories. I don't know how I'm gonna close the door.
Donna: Let's go.
Brooke: Today was a hard day. But we haven't really lost Forrester. We're all still working there. We're getting Spencer stock for ourselves, for our children. And with Katie as C.E.O., behind the scenes, we're still in charge, just as she promised. She won't let us down.
Bill: Speechless. That means one of two things. You're blown away, or you're not sure what you want to do.
Katie: (Sighs) (Sighs)
Bill: Remember the night of the fashion challenge? I-I took you to Café Russe, and I-I told you that you looked like a-a doorway to a place I'd never been to, feelings that I had never experienced.
Bill: Well, here we are. Our hearts are intact. We're starting a life together. We're--we're sharing a home.
Bill: I'm not, uh, the most religious guy in the world, but you coming into my life-- it makes me believe in a higher power. And I pledge with all I have to love and cherish the only woman who has ever touched my heart in the way that you have.
Katie: I can't believe this. (Sighs) I, uh, I'm standing here. I'm looking at you. I'm--I'm listening to everything you're saying, and I just keep thinking whose life am I living? A year ago, I-I-- I didn't know you. I-I couldn't even imagine you. And now here you are. You're this-- this beautiful, complex, frustrating, exciting man, and--and you want me to be your wife? I... (Sighs) I may have forgotten how to breathe. (Laughs)
Bill: Is that a yes?
Katie: (Laughs) Yes. Yes. Yes, I will marry you. I will marry you. (Sighs)
Ridge: It's almost like you think if you say it enough it makes it true.
Brooke: (Chuckles) It is true. You heard Katie’s promise. She'll always put her family first before anything or anyone.
Katie: It fits. (Laughs)
Bill: To us.
Katie: To us.
Katie: Mmm. So we're really getting married.
Bill: Yeah, we are. Katie, I will always love you and care for you and be loyal to you above all else.
Katie: I feel the same way about you. You have given me a whole new life. I love you so much. I will be loyal to you always.
