Katie: Hi. Oh, you're here at the perfect time. I have a dilemma-- butter cream or whipped frosting?
Bill: Well, now you're talking.
Katie: For our wedding cake. Never too early to start planning.
Bill: Have I told you lately how happy I am you said yes?
Katie: Tell me again. (Chuckles)
Katie: Mm. (Chuckles)
Bill: So is this how my C.E.O. spends all her time-- debating the merits of various baked goods?
Katie: (Laughs) Don't worry, boss man. I can multitask with the best of them. In fact, these are our brainstorming ideas for the new Forrester campaign.
Bill: Am I gonna love 'em?
Katie: You're gonna love them, because they're gonna blow the competition out of the water.
Jackie: We can do this another time.
Bridget: No. No, look, the doctor said that I couldn't have children, but there's nothing wrong with the rest of me. I'm completely fine.
Nick: Maybe it's not such a good idea you came in today...
Nick: You know?
Bridget: Honey, I am focused on counting my blessings. I am not gonna let this thing sink me. But what I'd like to do is get back to work and focus on what I can do, not what I canít. So can we please just get back to business?
Jackie: Okay, if you're sure.
Bridget: I'm sure.
Whip: Our Indulge campaign was a monster hit.
Stephanie: Yes, it was, Whip. How you gonna top yourself?
Owen: Yeah. What ideas do we have so far?
Whip: Great. (Chuckles)
Jackie: How'd your interview at "The Catwalk" go?
Stephanie: Oh, I ended up not doing it. Pam took my place.
Jackie: Pam? Was that wise? Why didn't you do it?
Stephanie: Because the host quit, and the new hostess they brought on was Donna Logan, so I passed.
Pam: (Scoffs) And you know me. I-I can't resist a TV show. It's my kryptonite.
Stephanie: They sent me a DVD.
Pam: They did?
Stephanie: Yes. After you stopped shaking, you actually stole the show...
Stephanie: Which is amazing, because Donna's always the one that's stealing stuff.
Pam: I was really okay?
Stephanie: Oh, honey, you were wonderful. I have no idea, though, what a fashion audience is gonna do with a cake recipe. (Chuckles)
Whip: (Chuckles) Oh, that's so great. Can we get back to the campaign, please, here? Any ideas? Anyone? Okay, I got one. All right, since the country seems to be, you know, going green and everything, how about-- how about "Jackie M. gets back to nature"? All right? And since--since our customers are so taken with Owen and Jackieís romance, why don't we take them back, as well, right to where it all started? To--to Adam and Eve.
Bridget: I'm--I-I've been wanting to use more natural, more organic fabrics.
Whip: Well, exactly. So what's more natural than Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden? Where lust and temptation-- it-it is all beautiful things. Come on, guys. I-I think this is really a great idea.
Pam: That was my idea.
Bill: All right. Just outline the basics for me.
Katie: Well, you know, the success of the Royalty campaign. This is a different take on that. It's Hollywood royalty.
Bill: Go on.
Katie: Hollywood is a place that's synonymous with style, from the movie legends of the past to the allure of Rodeo drive.
Bill: Star power.
Katie: Mm-hmm. The public is fascinated with that. It intrigues them. We want to harness that and connect our buyers to the glamour of these famous fashion goddesses.
Bill: Hmm. Was this your idea?
Katie: No, it was Steffy's. What do you think?
Bill: Well, I have seen a lot of dynamic campaigns in my day, but this ain't one of 'em.
Bridget: Well, Adam and Eve-- um, Adam and-- I mean, I don't know. It sounds--it's interesting.
Stephanie: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Eve was a teenager, wasn't she? And with all due respect, Jackie, I'm not so sure that you can carry that one off.
Whip: Stephanie, I disagree. Jackie is beautiful. She's sexy. She's--
Jackie: Thank you very much, Whip, but actually, on this, I do agree with you, Stephanie.
Stephanie: Thank you, darling. And I also think that maybe when it comes to the garden of Eden-- a little negative, you know? People think and associate it with lying, cheating--
Whip: Oh. Oh, c-come on. Come on, Stephanie, look. Jackie M.'s image is being unashamed, okay? And after all, we are all sinners.
Whip: Sin stirs the pot, you know?
Jackie: Yeah, and there's something terribly exciting about the forbidden, you know?
Whip: Amen to that.
Bridget: Seems like people are always wanting what they can't have.
Pam: But, you know, we're selling clothes, and weren't Adam and Eve buck naked?
Whip: Yes, but they were also sexy, Pam. Come on. It's fresh, green, guys. All these things we can use in our favor.
Nick: Maybe we should have a photo shoot in an apple orchard.
Whip: Yeah, or, hey, we could paint Owen green.
Owen: (Laughs sarcastically) Yeah, I'm gonna be trading in my dog collar for a fig leaf, right?
Whip: That's great. Oh, thank you for being such a team player.
Owen: No, wait a minute. I--
Whip: Unless you've got something to hide.
Owen: Well, I'll wear one if you want to wear one.
Jackie: Some days I really love this job.
Bill: Sorry, baby, this campaign idea just doesn't do it for me.
Katie: Why not?
Bill: Because I don't think that Hollywood is the right image for Forrester Creations.
Katie: Well, with all due respect, I think you're wrong. Hollywood is about style and glamour. And what little girl doesn't want to grow up and be famous and walk the red carpet? We want every woman to feel like that when she puts on a Forrester gown. It's a good concept. And it was Steffy's idea. Do you know what that means?
Bill: Well, I think it means that Ridge's daughter is on board with us and trying to contribute.
Katie: Yes, and that's huge. It's something we should encourage. It gives me hope that we can work together.
Bill: So are you suggesting I should green-light the campaign so that we don't offend the former president's daughter?
Katie: No, I'm suggesting you green-light it because it's a good idea. You hired me for my judgment. This is a creative concept, and I like it.
Steffy: Oh, excuse me. Sorry to interrupt, but you're wanted in accounting, like, ten minutes ago.
Katie: Actually, your timing couldn't be better. Why don't you come in here and pitch your campaign to Bill. Just tell him what you told me. You can find me afterwards. Have fun.
Steffy: This is weird and wrong, you know? You in my grandfather's office, in his seat.
Bill: It's just a chair. We all work together now.
Steffy: One big happy family?
Bill: That's the general idea.
Steffy: Mm. Except you stole our family's company.
Bill: I saved it. All your family members have jobs because of me. But I digress. Katie says you have a campaign idea. Impress me.
Whip: This might just be a great concept.
Pam: Yeah, but didn't the garden of Eden have snakes? I hate snakes.
Owen: I second that. It is a great idea, but I'm drawing the line on the whole fig leaf thing. I'm sorry.
Jackie: Okay, everybody, I want it understood that no one gratuitously puts my husband in sexy outfits except me.
Whip: Okay, great. We'll put a memo out. How about that?
Stephanie: Jackie, Whip, perhaps just a slightly different angle. You know, uh, Pamís right. Adam and Eve were buck naked in the garden of Eden, right? But they covered up once they realized it was a sin to be naked.
Pam: (Whispering) Oh, that's good.
Stephanie: So we sort of tell people that we're going to cover them up in style with Bridgetís dresses.
Whip: Come on.
Pam: I love it.
Nick: All right, maybe it's "If you wear Jackie M., no one can resist you."
Whip: Love it. Love it.
Owen: "Fashion so good..."
Jackie and Owen: "It's sinful."
Pam: Ohh! (Laughs)
Stephanie: (Laughs) "Jackie M.'s got you covered."
Whip: See? Every--you get 'em talkin'.
Nick: Bridget, honey, we should check with you, 'cause this really wasn't the concept of the ad campaign.
Bridget: No, but--
Nick: Uh, but it's catchy, isn't it?
Bridget: Yes, it is. (Stammers) I like it.
Whip: You like it?
Bridget: It's really good.
Stephanie: That's wonderful. Whip, I think it is great. And Spencer and company, they're never gonna come up with anything this creative.
Stephanie: They just don't have it in them.
Steffy: Yes, could you send them up as soon as possible? Thank you.
Bill: Would you like some water?
Steffy: I'm good. This campaign is about classic, timeless glamour-- the kind that never goes out of style. And it would feature the Logan sisters as iconic Hollywood glamour girls.
Bill: We already have an identity with royalty. Why, uh, cheapen it? Hollywood's fake.
Steffy: It's about hope and dreams.
Steffy: Like it or not, the whole world has fallen in love with those illusions. We're at the place where it all happens. It's right at our doorstep. The movie studios are practically in our backyard. So why don't we make them the fantasy that we sell?
Bill: Fantasy? In this economy? Aren't you overreaching?
Steffy: When times are tough, we need fantasy even more.
Bill: The Logan sisters would be a prominent part of the campaign? I assume you'd like to join them.
Steffy: What? No. God, no. The camera doesn't like me much. No.
Bill: I find that hard to believe.
Steffy: Well, then I don't like the camera. We don't get along well. Besides, I'm not a Logan.
Bill: Do I detect some hard feelings?
Steffy: Plenty. No offense or anything, but the only way I think you're getting out of this office is if you're carried out.
Bill: No offense taken.
Steffy: And I have to deal with you, which is why I'm here makin' the best of it.
(Knock on door)
Steffy: Perfect timing.
Woman: Is this the look you were going for, Miss Forrester?
Steffy: Oh, it is perfect. Come in. So I had to do this on short notice. I figured I'd have a chance to pitch my campaign. We want every woman to feel like they're stepping on the red carpet. At--at home, the kids are screaming, dinner is up in smoke, her husband's not paying any attention to her, so she puts on one of our dresses, and her life, even though routine, is transformed into something beautiful. We're not just selling you the clothes. We're selling you the glamour, that certain something that makes you feel like you're in the spotlight 24/7. That hope. That dream. That--that life that you can-- it can be beautiful as you dare to dream it, as it is in the movies. Thank you. Thank you.
Steffy: So, you haven't interrupted me. Does that mean you like what you hear?
Bill: Well, I'll say one thing. You're nothing if not persistent.
Steffy: You think I'm stubborn?
Bill: It's a compliment. It's a quality we share in common.
Steffy: I like to think of myself as a good businesswoman. I know you have to keep me here because of my last name. But I want to pull my weight. We can't just be good. We gotta catch fire to put us back on top.
Bill: Well, I want that, too. Forrester Creations is a, uh, a gem, but it's lost some of its luster. And I'm determined to make it shine again-- whatever it takes.
Steffy: It's not enough being just a competitor.
Bill: It's about winning.
Bill: Global big.
Steffy: You can't just be noticed. You gotta make a splash.
Bill: Perfect 10 off the high dive. All right. I have heard what you had to say, and I'm going to take it under advisement.
Steffy: Oh, no. I'm not leaving until I convince you that this campaign is a hit. Glamour is something that you can't put a price on. It's either you have it or you donít. And Forrester does. And we could sell you a precious piece of it. We can break off a bit of that sparkling Hollywood glory and wrap it up in a fabulous dress or a top or a skirt, and you can take it home with you. And that's what rocks.
Bill: (Chuckles) Are you finished?
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, I think so.
Katie: Hi. How's it going? Has she won you over with her pitch? She's pretty impressive, isn't she?
Steffy: No, actually, I don' think that he--
Bill: Impressive as hell.
Nick: What just happened here? Did Whip pitch us an amazing ad campaign, or did he tap-dance around us? I'm not really sure, you know, with the fig leaves and the snakes. This could be a complete and total disaster, you know. Bridget?
Bridget: Honey, Owen and Jackie were looking into finding a surrogate because of--of Jackieís age, I assume. And it wasn't right for them, but...
Nick: What? A surrogate for us? A woman to carry our child?
Bridget: You're right. That wouldn't work for us either. I don't know what I'm thinking.
Nick: No, no. That's not true. That's not true at all. First off, it would be completely safe for you, right? I mean, we want a baby together, don't we? And if a surrogate could be the solution, I...
Bridget: But I wouldn't be the one carrying our child.
Nick: But that doesn't mean the child still wouldn't be ours. It would be our baby. We would be the ones who would--who would love it and raise it, right? We would be the ones to be there for his first bike ride and for her first step and to braid her first ponytail and take her to her first day of school. I mean, Bridget, you are an amazing mother. You--you're meant to have children no matter how the children get to you. I... I think that surrogacy may be something we should consider.
Bridget: You mean this.
Nick: I-I do.
Bridget: Really? 'Cause I-- I mean, I would love to look into it. I really want this. I want this, because I want to have a baby with you, our baby. Just ours, with your nose and my eyes all wrapped up in pink or blue ribbons. Nick, I want this so much, it hurts.
Nick: I know. So do I.
Bridget: I love you so much. (Laughs) Do you know how much I love you?
Bridget: Oh, sweetheart.
