Justin: The show needs to run on time. Very important, all right? Videos should be cued.

Steffy: And--And make sure that you just really amp it up. Just--

Donna: Okay.

Steffy: Okay, are you sure you're getting everything?

Donna: Yeah.

Steffy: And you have a full description of--of the designs we're featuring in the video? Oh, and just make sure you work in some comments of--of Marilyn Monroe. It's really reminiscent of what she wore when she was--

Thomas: Steffy, let Donna breathe. The video speaks for itself. Let's go check on the equipment, make sure everything's cued up.

Steffy: Okay.

Donna: Okay, bye.

Katie: So, are-- are we all on schedule?

Steffy: Yes, right on schedule.

Katie: Okay.

Steffy: Ooh, I-I need to talk to Justin.

Bridget: If it's a girl, I think we'll probably-- and if it's a boy, they can share a room--

Katie: I hope your mother isn't giving away secrets.

Bridget: Oh, are you kidding me? It's like Fort Knox here. She's not spilling anything.

Brooke: That's right. We were just talking about babies.

Katie: Oh, that's right. I haven't seen you in so long. Congratulations to you and Nick. You really deserve it.

Bridget: Thank you. Listen, I am really excited for you guys. This line sounds exciting. Steffy really might have come up with a winner.

Brooke: I think so.

Katie: Yeah, she sure did. Excuse me.

Bridget: All right, um, well, I-I-I-I should probably get back to the office.

Brooke: What? You're not gonna stay?

Bridget: No.

Brooke: Why?

Bridget: I'm nervous, Mom. I'm really nervous. And I just want to watch it on TV with Nick back at the office. I wanted to come by here and just tell everyone, you know, wish them well.

Brooke: Honey, don't be nervous. I just want to tell you how proud I am of you to--to do this green movement. It's just so admirable.

Bridget: Thank you. Thanks. I'm really proud of us, too. I like the line we're doing at Jackie M. Good luck.

Brooke: (Chuckles) Come here. Oh, and I just want to tell you I'm sorry.

Bridget: For what?

Brooke: For your upcoming loss.

Bridget: Oh, Mother!

Brooke: (Laughs) Honey, as good as going green makes you feel, do you really think you stand a chance against a Forrester Hollywood Glamour campaign?

Bridget: Just wait. (Clicks tongue) (Laughs)

Owen: So Whip, you are positive we are gonna win this, right?

Whip: Slam dunk.

Jackie: Mm-hmm. That's what you said about the Indulge line, too.

Whip: I know. I know. But this is different, Jackie, okay? We're not being voted on by a panel. It's internet voting. The viewers of "The Catwalk" are gonna get to decide. Besides, I don't care how glamorous Forrester thinks that the Hollywood of bygone days were. You know what it conjures up for me? Black-and-white images of rich people standing around smoking.

Jackie: (Chuckles)

Whip: Thank you so much. Boring, right? But what do we have? We got Owen, "Adam," naked in the Garden of Eden. Gee, I wonder which one they're gonna want to click their computer on for. We got an edge.

Owen: Okay, wait a minute, Whip. I'm not naked, technically. I'm wearing a fig leaf, unless you did some last-minute photoshop-ing.

Whip: No, Owen. I didn't touch your fig leaf. Although, I am hoping that the viewers of "The Catwalk" will want to.

Donna: All I'm asking, Pam, is that for once, do you think you could please try not to do "The Catwalk" dance at the end of the show?

Pam: But why?

Serge: Yeah.

Pam: I-It's a hit.

Donna: It's you acting like a ham on my show.

Serge: Actually, she co-hosts the show.

Pam: (Chuckles) Thank you, Serge. Uh, Donna, if you have any complaints about me, uh, talk to my agent.

Stephanie: Big show today.

Pam: Oh, thanks, but, uh, don't make me any more nervous than I already am.

Stephanie: Oh, you'll be brilliant. Hello, Donna.

Donna: Stephanie.

Steffy: Um, there isn't that much time for the audience. Does the voting actually start when it's over? I don't really--

Stephanie: Good luck, Steffy.

Steffy: Grandma, thank you so much. Thank you.

Stephanie: You're going to be absolutely fabulous. We're going to be better, and we are going to beat you.

Steffy: Oh.

Stephanie: (Laughs)

Justin: It's almost time. Are you ready?

Donna: Yeah, I guess.

Justin: What's wrong?

Donna: It's just an important show today, and it--it would be nice if Eric were here to support me.

Eric: (Sighs) The offer to buy back the company?

Ridge: Bill turned us down flat.

Eric: (Sighs)

Steffy: I-I'm just making sure if you got the clearance I faxed over to you. Um, I haven't really seen my mom, so I hope she's not having trouble at the gate or anything.

Justin: Isn't that your mom right over there talking to the enemy?

Steffy: No, she's probably just telling him to be nice to me. I better go rescue her. Hey, Mom. I hope you're not threatening Whip.

Whip: Cool.

Steffy: I'm a big girl. I can handle going one-on-one with him.

Whip: Well, no, actually, your mother was, uh, was warning me.

Steffy: Mm.

Whip: She told me that you'd been up all night studying.

Taylor: And I wanted to come by and wish you good luck before the show.

Steffy: Good, well, I'm glad you could come, but the show's about to start, so do you want me to take you to your seat?

Taylor: Uh, sure.

Steffy: Okay.

Taylor: Good luck, Whip. Don't let my daughter trounce on you.

Donna: Okay, I-I think it's time.

Woman: Okay.

Man: We're almost ready. Places, please. Places. Five, four, three, two...

Audience: (Cheering)

(Theme music plays)

Donna: Hello! Welcome, everybody. Welcome to "The Catwalk." I'm your host Donna Forrester.

Pam: (Meows)

Donna: And with us always, the incomparable Pamela Douglas by my side.

(Scattered applause)

Woman: Whoo!

Pam: That's me.

Donna: Now this is a show that we've all been waiting for. Today, we will unveil two new fashion campaigns-- Forrester Creations' Hollywood Glamour...

Pam: And Jackie M.'s Adam and Eve.

Donna: Without further ado, let's bring out the two P.R. whizzes who thought up these campaigns.

Pam: Mr. Whip Jones...

Donna: And Steffy Forrester. Come on down the catwalk!

(Theme music plays)

(Cheers and applause)

Eric: I suppose it was stupid, uh, to even hope.

Ridge: It was a solid offer. He would have made money, which is all Bill really cares about. I thought he would have at least considered it.

Eric: Oh, no. He thinks he can make even more money having Katie order you around and telling you what to design.

Ridge: Yeah, how absurd is that? How absurd.

Eric: I don't know how you do it, Ridge. I don't know how you can come in here. I don't-- how you still come in here.

Ridge: Part of the reason I stay here, Dad, is for Steffy and Thomas.

Eric: (Sighs)

Ridge: The other part-- I just refuse to give up on the idea that we can get this company back.

Eric: Yeah, but he's not gonna sell the company. How are we gonna do that?

Ridge: We have to be creative. Dad, I've been up all night thinking about this-- how do we out-manipulate the master of manipulation?

Eric: You have an answer, hmm?

Ridge: Not quite, but I'm close.

Pam: Great question. Thank you so much. We have for time for one more question.

Serge: Oh, I-I want one.

Pam: Serge, all right.

Serge: That's Serge, caterer to the stars, at www.sparklesergesparkle--

Donna: What's your question, Serge?

Serge: Uh, this is for, um, Mr. Whip Jones. Um, hi. Um, the Indulge campaign was a fantastic success in my opinion, mainly because of Owen Knight's delicious abs.

Audience: (Laughs)

Serge: Uh, can we expect something similar in this campaign?

Whip: Um, well, let's just say you'll be seeing a lot more of Owen. I believe he was wearing pants in the Indulge campaign.

Audience: Ooh!

Serge: (Sighs) Wonderful. Thank-- that's all then. (Speaking indistinctly)

Pam: Thank you all for your wonderful questions. That's all for now. Thank you.

Donna: Okay. Okay, we're about to show the videos. Now after both have aired, you can log onto the web site and vote for which one you like the best-- Hollywood Glamour...

Donna: Or Jackie M.'s Adam and Eve. (Applause)

Donna: But you have got to vote fast, because we're revealing the winner at the end of this show.

Pam: The polls are gonna close any minute, so you have to vote.

Donna: So log on now and get ready to vote. We want to know which fashion house you think delivers the best campaign.

Pam: (Whispers) Jackie M.!

Donna: Or Forrester. We'll be right back after this message.

(Theme music plays)

Audience: (Cheering)

Eric: You want to check out "The Catwalk"? Steffy's pitching the Glamour line today on TV.

Ridge: I'll watch it later with her when she gets back. She really believes in this campaign, Dad. Thinks she's working on something worthwhile.

Eric: Well, that's good. She needs to believe in her own work if she's gonna be successful in this business.

Ridge: I know, but the product has to be good, too. My designs--they're okay. They're adequate, but there's nothing special. Nothing takes your breath away. They just don't live up to Steffy’s concept, that's for sure, not even close. How could they working under Bill Spencer? I can't design what I should be designing. I feel like a huge weight's on me every time I walk in this damn building. I'm uninspired, and it shows.

Eric: Well, Bill and Katie aren't coming down on you? They're not pushing you harder?

Ridge: No, they don't even have the experience to know when a design could be a lot better. I can't go on like this, Dad. We've got to find a way out.

Eric: Well, what are you gonna do? I mean, you said you had a plan. You said you're working on something.

Ridge: I am. And I'm close. (Sighs) I feel like it's in here. I know that. That's how we're gonna get out from under Bill Spencer.

Donna: Welcome back. Welcome back to "The Catwalk." Let's get right to it and look at the first campaign by Forrester Creations-- Hollywood Glamour.

(Cheers and applause)

Steffy: Lights, camera, fashion. Hollywood, California-- the city for those who dream big, who yearn for their talents to be discovered, for those who know they have what it takes to be a star.

(Alarm bell rings)

Steffy: Forrester creations is the premier fashion house for Hollywood’s glamorous elite who demand to look their best on the big screen, in magazine pages and on the red carpet. With our new line, every woman in America has a chance to feel what it's like to be a star. Go ahead. Unleash your inner diva. Forrester Creations is proud to present its Hollywood Glamour line, a division of Spencer Publications.

(Cheers and applause)

(Theme music plays)

Donna: That was wonderful. That was wonderful, Steffy.

Nick: Hmm.

Bridget: That was... wow.

Nick: Yeah. Very, you know, exciting.

Bridget: It's really beautiful.

Nick: A little excessive, though, maybe, don't you think? Just a little bit?

Bridget: I think so.

Nick: Yeah, it was excessive. Yeah.

Bridget: A little bit, or--or maybe it was just because--because I-I--we know what our line stands for.

Nick: Oh, please--you mean if you buy a Forrester gown, you're gonna be a star? Give me a break. Our line is much more in tune with current economy.

Bridget: It is, right?

Nick: Yes.

Bridget: Look, I'm still really happy with what we're doing.

Nick: Absolutely.

Bridget: I think Jackie M. is trying to make a difference. I don't even care if we win this competition.

Nick: (Blows raspberry)

Bridget: I don't even care if we sell anything.

Nick: Right.

Bridget: You know, we're doing something that matters. We're designing gowns for reuse. We're using sustainable fabrics. We're not leaving a carbon footprint on the environment. Honestly, I think that Jackie M. is telling the world that this really does matter. It's really important to us, and I couldn't possibly be more proud of us. Unless, of course, we win.

Nick: Yeah, totally.

Donna: So some of these designs are actually reminiscent of what real-life movie stars have worn on the red carpet.

Steffy: Uh, yes. This is the real deal. This is for all you people out there who have practiced your Oscar-winning speech in the bathroom mirror. These timeless designs will--

Pam: But what about the rest of us?

Steffy: What?

Pam: Well, I, for one, never wanted to be a movie star. They always seemed kinda vapid to me. I mean, I think that maybe Forrester is reaching a pretty small audience by doing this.

Whip: Oh, I think they certainly are, Pam, yeah. See, but over at Jackie M., we're--we're trying to appeal to a much broader audience with our--our Adam and Eve campaign. I mean, don't get me wrong, Steffy. It's--it's wonderful. I'm sure you're reaching a niche market with what Forrester’s trying to do. I'm sure there's, um, maybe a Beverly Hills socialite or two that would love to pay big bucks to be a movie star, you know, wear the dress maybe once, maybe twice. But that's ridiculous. But for you or--or for me or for the studio audience or-- or even the viewers at home, we don't want to pay an enormous amount of money for something we're only gonna wear once. I mean, it's--it's disposable fashion. It's what haute couture has been for so very long. But with our Adam and Eve design, Jackie M. is saying "no more."

Pam: Let's roll the tape.

Man: Yes!

(Cheers and applause)

(Children giggling)

Whip: The fashion industry has left a huge carbon footprint in the past, from pesticides used on crops to chemical dyes being poured into our rivers. That's why Jackie M.'s new, responsible fashion statement is recycle, renew, reuse. Our Adam and Eve line uses only sustainable, organic fabric, and we're crafting these beautiful designs locally. There's a better way for you to dress, a new way for you to look good and help the environment at the same time. Jackie M. is going green-- going back to the Garden of Eden. Do what's right. Choose to make a difference. Wear the Adam and Eve line by Jackie M.

Whip: (Mouthing words)

Ridge: I am so proud of Steffy. I want her to succeed, but not this way-- answering to Bill Spencer in our family business. I feel like I'm in such a bind. It disgusts me that we're doing well for Steffy, and that means doing well for Bill Spencer.

Eric: Yeah.

Ridge: The man who doesn't give a damn about the artistry of fashion. That's why I need this plan.

Eric: Well, what plan? What is it, Ridge? What--what do you have in mind?

Ridge: Check this out. Look at this stuff.

Eric: Oh, my God.

Ridge: Exactly. Can you believe it? They actually try to sell this.

Eric: There's so many people out there that know nothing about design.

Ridge: That's my point. There are a lot of people out there like Bill, in charge of these companies, executives who can only think of the bottom line, who won't blink an eye if their designers are making this kind of trash, because they have no clue about the creative side of what we're doing. Can you imagine if Forrester Creations put out something like this?

Eric: Well, we wouldn’t. We never would.

Ridge: Well, maybe it's time we did.

Eric: What? Produce bad designs?

Ridge: Spencer is on our turf, Dad. But we can outsmart him. We can design a line that's so awful, so hideous, we can take this company from being an asset to a major liability overnight.

Eric: (Chuckles) Oh, we would have to be so careful. We would have to be very, very careful.

Ridge: It could be done, though, right here with pen and paper. The worst line in the history of Forrester Creations. Look, Dad, I've been sitting idly by, dutifully subservient long enough to that bastard. Well, no more. The year of Forrester Creations, a division of Spencer Publications, is over. Let's outsmart him. Let's get him out of this company. Let's do it now, starting today. We're gonna take him down. Let's do it together, Dad. You and I will crush Bill Spencer and bring forester Creations back home to us, to our family, where it belongs. What do you say?

Eric: Okay.

Man: All right, we're back in five, four, three, two...

(Cheers and applause)

(Theme music plays)

Donna: Welcome back to this very special episode of "The Catwalk." Today, we're honored to be joined by Whip Jones of Jackie M. And Steffy Forrester of Forrester Creations, presenting two spectacular fashion campaigns-- very unique and very different and both with real shots of winning this competition.

Pam: But go online now. There's only a few minutes left to vote. And we're going to announce the winner at the end of the show coming right up.

Donna: And as you can see, the votes are pouring in. Could--could we refresh the board, please?

(Drum roll)

Audience: (Gasps) (Applause)

Pam: But make your vote count. Hurry up and vote for Jackie M.

Donna: Or Forrester. (Chuckles) Whichever campaign you like the best.

Pam: (Chuckles) Donna, this is so exciting.

Donna: Oh, two minutes. Two minutes. That's all the voting time we have left. Who will win this "Catwalk" challenge? Will it be Jackie M.'s Adam and Eve or Forrester Creations' Hollywood Glamour?

Pam: But don't touch that dial. We're gonna learn who the winner is in just a few minutes, so you stay tuned now. (Meows)

Audience: (Laughs)
