Brooke: Going somewhere?
Steffy: No. Um, these are the samples Dad needed.
Steffy: So luckily, for me, your sister's a kind, forgiving person.
Brooke: You weren't fired?
Steffy: No, or tarred and feathered. Katie gave me a stern warning, but I also got my job back.
Brooke: Oh! I'm glad.
Steffy: Um, I hope you don't hate me for messing up with Bill, because if you ever thought less of me, I--
Brooke: No, no. I... (sighs) I had a hand in raising you. You have a good heart. And I love you. You know that. It's just you lost your way for a moment there, and that happens. But that's behind us now.
Steffy: (Sighs) (sighs)
Ridge: Well, Dad, it's done. I e-mailed Bill the offer to take back what we lost. Forrester Creations belongs in our hands, and we should take control now.
Bill: Love the energy in the air. You can feel it walking down the hall.
Katie: Everyone is so excited about "The Catwalk" competition.
Bill: We are gonna blow Jackie M.'s designs out of the water.
Katie: Yes. And I suppose, since the Hollywood Glamour campaign was Steffy's idea, as much as I hate to admit it...
Katie: You were right. Firing her would have been a mistake.
Bill: So you're okay with keeping her on?
Katie: As C.E.O., sure. As your wife, the jury's still out. I don't trust her, but I have complete faith in you.
Bill: I only have eyes for one woman-- the one I married.
Whip: Hey. Our distributors have been calling with rave reviews. Our eco-designs are gonna be a huge hit.
Stephanie: How could they not?
Stephanie: (Laughs) We're gonna use sustainable, uh, fabrics and natural fibers. I mean, we are going to make green the new black.
Jackie: Yeah. You wear our frocks, ladies, you'll not only look gorgeous, but you will be saving the planet, too
Bridget: Here we go. Adam and Eve back to nature in their pesticide-free garden.
Stephanie: Whip, you have positioned us to change this industry, and that, my friend, is power.
Whip: My pleasure. Hey, Nick. Um, we need to, uh, talk about Sandy.
Nick: Not tonight. Hello, everyone.
Jackie: Nicky, we're drawing up battle plans. All hands on deck.
Ridge: There are my beautiful girls. What are you two looking so chummy about?
Brooke: Oh, I was just wishing Steffy luck with the show tomorrow.
Donna: As host of "The Catwalk," I am supposed to stay impartial, but what the hell? Knock 'em dead. (Giggles)
Thomas: Hey, guys, so I've almost finished the video for "The Catwalk" competition, and it is off the chain.
Brooke: Wow. Looks like Steffy’s concept has inspired us all.
Ridge: I'm very proud of you, sweetheart. You did your job brilliantly. I don't think I did my share as well.
Brooke: Ridge, your designs were fabulous.
Ridge: No, they were acceptable. I definitely wasn't at the top of my game. I just did the best I could under the circumstances.
Steffy: Dad, I know how much it gets to you having to work for Bill and Katie.
Ridge: I will never get used to it. Never.
Stephanie: We lost to Forrester the last time. We are never going to eat dirt again.
Jackie: No, it's absolutely no fun almost winning an Oscar.
Whip: Come on, guys, we've got this one in the bag, and now it's an eco-friendly, reusable bag. What does Forrester have, anyway?
Stephanie: Just the Logan girls wearing old Hollywood.
Whip: (Chuckles) Next.
Thomas: All right, who wants a sneak peek at our video?
Brooke: Dazzle us, Thomas.
(Dramatic music playing)
Steffy: H-hey. What brings you here?
Taylor: Oh, just wanted to see how things are going.
Steffy: Oh, you're checking up on me.
Taylor: No. Um, actually, you really haven't been quite yourself, and I was a little concerned.
Steffy: Mm. I guess that goes with being the daughter of a shrink.
Taylor: No, I prefer to think of it as a mother's intuition. And my radar is never wrong.
Steffy: Okay. Okay. I-I have been going through something, okay?
Taylor: Define something.
Taylor: Does it have something to do with a man?
Steffy: Mom, all you need to know is that you have nothing to worry about, okay? It's over, totally and completely.
Katie: Are you excited about the show tomorrow?
Bill: All I want to do is win.
Katie: Two of the country's biggest fashion houses going head-to-head on "The Catwalk." The ratings are gonna be great.
Bill: And when we destroy Jackie M., I'll try not to gloat too hard.
Katie: You try. Got any aces up your sleeve just in case we need them?
Bill: Only one-- my beautiful wife...
Bill: Who is also the star of the show and running my company. We can't lose.
Katie: Because of your faith in me every step of the way.
Bill: Just think-- this is a family-owned company again, only this time, it's our family-- you and me and the family we're going to create.
Katie: I really like the sound of that. (Sighs) (Giggles)
Nick: This is some press release here, Whip. "Jackie M. has gone towards green. The fashion industry has left a huge carbon footprint in the past from pesticides used on crops to chemicals pouring toxic dyes into our rivers. That's why Jackie M.'s new, responsible fashion statement is recycle, renew, reuse."
Jackie: Do you remember when sustainable clothing meant wearing a potato sack and extremely unattractive sandals?
Bridget: Look. Oh, my goodness. Here's another web site that's giving us props on their blog.
Whip: All right. More free press.
Whip: Lean and green, baby!
Stephanie: Well, speaking of green, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, our sales reports are fantastic.
Whip: Oh, yeah?
Stephanie: Honey, preproduction orders are through the roof.
Bridget: Oh, my goodness. Oh, my goodness! Whoo!
Whip: Really? Nice!
Owen: Yeah, seems like people don't mind spending the extra money on the organic fabric.
Bridget: But see, they're not just spending their money. They're spending with their conscious.
Jackie: Or maybe it was seeing Owen in that darling fig leaf.
Nick: Mother, please.
Jackie: It worked for me.
Whip: Well, look, all of this gives us a major advantage over Forrester, since they haven't thought outside the box for years. No offense. So while we're going green and we're winning the competitions, I think they're gonna go by way of the dinosaur.
Nick: Sounds like it's time for rehearsal, folks. Our team's gonna have to come up with a new victory cheer.
Whip: Oh, yeah.
Bridget: (Laughs) Oh, no.
Nick: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Thomas: So all that's left is the music tracks.
Brooke: I like it.
Thomas: I'm gonna throw in something funky, alternative, and then it's really gonna rock.
Ridge: Get ready to work, son. Campaign looks very hot with what you've done.
Donna: It's so exciting. Everything's finally coming together.
Brooke: We've gone through a rough time with this business, but we all pitched in and we all overcame our differences, and I think that gives us a great reason to celebrate, don't you think?
Brooke: I love what you did here. This is amazing.
Donna: Oh, I love that.
Brooke: You did a great job.
Bill: Feels good when a plan falls into place, doesn't it? We saved this company, Katie.
Katie: And we kept the Forresters employed.
Bill: And knocked our first campaign out of the ballpark.
Katie: And people are coming around. I'm not the only one you've charmed.
Bill: Eric's absence is still a sore spot.
Katie: Well, at least Ridge is in our corner.
Bill: (Sighs) Interesting.
Bill: I have an e-mail from Ridge with a document attached. He's hardly spoken two words to me since I bought the company.
Katie: I wonder what it is.
Bill: Let's see.
Thomas: I love that Steffy’s campaign is timeless. She didn't just hop on the latest fad.
Brooke: Thomas is right. How can you compare luscious gowns to fig leaves?
Brooke: I mean, that's like comparing an expensive steak dinner to granola.
Ridge: We haven't won "The Catwalk" competition yet.
Donna: Oh, it's just a matter of time.
Ridge: For a lot of things.
Whip: Okay, I've almost finished the video for tomorrow.
Jackie: Ooh, let me see it.
Stephanie: We're in great shape.
Taylor: Don't worry. I'm not spying. I'm not looking at anything, okay? I'm not looking. And it's--it's all neutral here. I'm neutral.
Stephanie: Well, that's terrible. You mean you don't have any good gossip to tell us about what's going on over there?
Taylor: No, I came--I came to wish you luck, all right? May the best team win.
Stephanie: Oh, that's us.
Owen: That's definitely us.
Jackie: Yep. We are the wave of the future and "The Catwalk" competition is going to prove that.
Taylor: Well, you certainly have a big smile on your face.
Whip: Hmm? Well, I mean, Jackie M.'s gonna kick butt tomorrow.
Whip: And my personal life is going... sensationally... (sighs) thanks to you.
Taylor: You disrupted my office.
Whip: I know.
Taylor: And so I really had no choice but to go out with you.
Whip: Mm, well, we've been disrupting my sleep since I met you...
Whip: So I'd say we're even.
Taylor: No, I don't think so.
Taylor: No. I am making you take me to probably a very, very ritzy...
Taylor: Expensive restaurant very soon because of those antics.
Whip: Eh, you're worth it. You know, it means a lot to me that you came down to see me.
Taylor: My friend Stephanie works here.
Whip: Oh. Oh, you mean, you didn't come down to see just me?
Taylor: Maybe just a little.
Bill: Read it. It's an offer to buy back the company for 10% more than I paid for it. Did you know anything about this?
Katie: No, of course not.
Bill: How did Eric get the financing?
Katie: Maybe he tapped some of his wealthy friends. He's still very well-connected.
Bill: I knew we should have kept a closer eye on him. I mean, here we thought he was home licking his wounds. We should have known he wouldn't go quietly.
Katie: Do you think my sisters knew about this? I mean, have they been plotting behind my back after everything we've done for them? And here I thought things were going so well.
Taylor: Well, um, I'll let you guys get back to work.
Stephanie: Thank you, honey, for coming. And your support means so much.
Taylor: (Sighs) No, I-I wanted to come wish you luck. I-I know that both of the teams are amazing--all of you. Everyone is great. I mean, I'm so proud of my kids and what they've done at Forrester, but I wanted you to know that you're all special to me, too. I care about every one of you.
Steffy: Can you pop that visual over the glamour title and just hold it there a little bit longer?
(Computer alert chimes)
Thomas: Ooh, the enemy. "Whip Jones has invited you to a video chat."
Steffy: Oh, ho, bring it on. (Clears throat)
Whip: Hey, Steffy. I just wanted to call and tell you "good luck" tomorrow.
Steffy: Thank you, but I won't need it.
Whip: (Laughs) Well, sorry. Actually, I-I don't think you have a chance. Sorry, kid.
Steffy: Don't get too confident, P.R. boy. My glamour video is so hot, it's burning up the screen. You're going down.
Whip: Okay. Well, I guess we're just gonna have to see who rules "The Catwalk" after the online votes come in. May the best fashion win.
Steffy: That'll be us. Okay, bye-bye.
(Computer alert chimes)
Thomas: Jackie M.'s totally running scared, or else Whip wouldn't have called to psych you out.
Steffy: Well, at least I'll be there to face Whip down. Katie didn't fire me.
Thomas: Oh, so you're back in the fold. For good?
Steffy: Yeah, Bill actually persuaded her to let me keep my job. Do you believe that? He stood up for me. (Chuckles)
Thomas: Steffy. (Sighs)
Steffy: No, don't worry. I don't even like him. I just like tormenting Katie.
Thomas: Please be careful.
Steffy: Hey, I've proven to be a valuable asset, okay? Look, I can't even stand Bill Spencer. But there's no way he's letting me go.
Thomas: Just promise me Dad won't ever find out that you kissed that man?
Steffy: As far as I'm concerned, it never happened. I don't even want to look at him... unless, of course, uh, it makes Katie sweat.
Brooke: (Sighs) You look miserable, Ridge. I know why.
Ridge: I dread this competition, Logan.
Brooke: You always loved to show your work.
Ridge: Because I was always proud of it. Now I feel like I'm designing with a gun to my head. I've tried to keep my feelings in check. I've tried to work without my father. But it's all wrong. (Sighs) I'm just hanging around here for Steffy’s sake. I feel trapped. I hate what Spencer’s done to this family. He's robbed us. I know you love your sister, but I really resent having to answer to her. Katie has not worked for her stripes. She's only been in this business a short time. I've been in this business my whole life building this company with my father. (Sighs) You may be happy here, but I'm not. I will never be happy here, not with things the way they are.
Brooke: I didn't realize how hurt you still were. I'm sorry. Bill. (Scoffs)
Bill: Oh, where are my manners? I should have knocked first. Hey, Ridge, how you doing? Oh, listen, uh, I got your e-mail. And don't even think about buying this company back. I own Forrester Creations. It is mine. And it will be mine for as long as I want it. You work for me. Is that clear? We have an iron-clad contract.
Ridge: Which I signed under duress.
Bill: Self-inflicted. You and your father put yourselves in this position. So cry me a river. I am done coddling you. You will do your job, and you will do it well.
Ridge: Well, so much for the kinder, gentler Spencer.
Bill: Don't mistake my kindnesses to you and your family as weakness. I've kept you on here because you are a valuable commodity as a designer. But I damn well expect you to produce. So no more little fantasies about sticking a knife in my back. That's over. You're here and you're here to stay. Like it or not, you work for me.
Brooke: You sent in your offer already? (Sighs)
Ridge: Dad and I couldn't wait.
Brooke: I'm sorry Bill wasn't more receptive.
Ridge: I can't keep going on like this, Logan. This is eating me alive.
Brooke: But you're under contract to Spencer.
Ridge: Well, I don't give a damn. The nerve of that bastard coming in here and telling me I've got to produce or else. To Spencer, all I am is a commodity. Does it have anything to do with tradition or quality? No. It's quantity. It's produce, produce, produce. The more you produce, you sell more, you get more money-- that's all he's concerned about. I swear I'm gonna bring that egotistical tyrant down.
Brooke: And how are you going to do that?
Ridge: I don't know, Logan. I don't know. There has to be a way. There has to be a way. (Sighs) That guy doesn't know the first thing about work in fashion house. Look at the way he dresses, for God's sakes. He doesn't have a clue about fashion.
Brooke: But he owns the company.
Ridge: And that never should have happened.
Brooke: I know. But it did.
Ridge: Well, we have to undo that. There has to be a way.
(Tapping on desk)
Ridge: There has to be some way... some way in our designs. The designs-- the core of fashion. That's something that Bill doesn't understand. He will never understand that. Some way that has to do with the fact he knows nothing about operating this business. I knew everything about it. Maybe that's the key. Maybe that's how we'll do it. (Sighs) He's got to be surprised, though. He's got to hit it from left field. He can't know it's coming. Something with... a page. The page and the designs. Yeah. That's it, Logan. That is the answer.
