Ridge: You're worried about me? Come on, Mother.
Stephanie: Well, it's all over the street about your Dare campaign. I-I think I know what you were up to. I'm sorry it didn't work.
Ridge: Yeah, we took one hell of a chance with that, but we came so close.
Stephanie: What's your next idea?
Ridge: I don't really know, but we are gonna get this company back. It's the only reason I stayed on here, that and my kids.
Stephanie: And how are they?
Ridge: Thomas is working his tail off, and Steffy, uh...
Stephanie: And Steffy?
Ridge: She's gonna start a new P.R. campaign...
Ridge: To replace the Dare line.
Ridge: She really needs this. She's been going through kind of a rough time lately.
Steffy: And so I present to you... Hollywood glamour-- the after party.
Katie: Interesting. So you want to stick with the same concept.
Steffy: Not exactly, but yes, it's a--it's a version of Hollywood Glamour, which was very successful for us.
Brooke: Sounds like it could be cost-effective.
Steffy: And it'll give us a quick turnaround.
Katie: Which we need, since we wasted so much time and money on the Dare line.
Steffy: Well, we already have the Hollywood Glamour template. Let's--let's use it and take it in a whole new direction. The premieres, the toasts-- we've covered that. It's time for the after party where the glamour really begins. (Door opens)
Hope: Hey, guys. Sorry I'm late.
Katie: Oh, that's okay. Come on in, Hope. I asked hope to join us.
Steffy: What's all that?
Hope: Oh, just something I threw together.
Katie: We can talk about that after your presentation. Uh, would you like to continue, Steffy?
Steffy: Yeah, right. Uh, yeah. (Clears throat)
Whip: Well, hey, Coz. Uh, Bridget and Nick are in a meeting, but they shouldn't be too long.
Sandy: That's okay. I didn't come to see them. Um, I came to see you.
Whip: Well, well, come in. Come in. (Laughs) What, uh... what can I do for you?
Sandy: You can start by forgiving me. I've treated you really badly, Whip. I'm really pretty ashamed of myself.
Whip: Well, don't be. You've--you've been going through something.
Sandy: Yeah, but to take it out on you, of all people--
Whip: Hey, what good are cousins if you can't give them a little grief now and then, right?
Whip: So... how are you?
Sandy: I'm good. I'm better.
Sandy: I'm much better.
Whip: Good. Yeah, you seem to be. I'm glad.
Sandy: Whip, I want to talk to you about what happened, about why I've--I've been so distant with you.
Whip: I've been worried about you, Aggie.
Whip: This has to do with a guy, doesn't it?
Sandy: Yeah. Yeah. This definitely has to do with a guy.
Man: Um, ex-excuse me.
Madison: Wow. I mean, yes?
Man: Um, I'm here to meet with Steffy Forrester.
Madison: Oh, right. Graham Darros, right?
Graham: Yeah. Yeah, that's me.
Madison: Steffy's in a meeting right now, but she will let me know when she's ready for you.
Graham: Okay. Thanks.
Madison: Hi, Taylor.
Taylor: Is Steffy in her presentation?
Madison: Yeah. She was really excited.
Taylor: Oh, I hope it goes well.
Graham: Excuse me. Are you a friend of Steffy’s?
Taylor: I'm her mother.
Graham: You're kidding. What, did you have her when you were 12?
Taylor: Who is this guy? I like him already, and I don't even know his name. I'm--I'm Taylor.
Graham: Taylor, I'm Graham. Nice to meet you.
Steffy: And if we hurry, we can introduce the line at the height of Hollywood party season. Imagine it-- the whole world focused on the Oscars, the stars and what they're wearing as we're rolling out the After Party line. Hundreds of millions of people watch the Oscars and the after parties, and what are they looking at? Fashion. And I'll make sure our designs are front and center.
Donna: It's very impressive.
Brooke: You've turned this around quickly. (Sighs) Nice job.
Steffy: Thank you.
Katie: Yes, really, good work. But I do have one question-- in our last collection, the Hollywood Glamour line, we had cocktail dresses, so how does this differ from what we've just done?
Sandy: It was the--the night that I had my head shots done at the party after.
Whip: Five years or so ago. Yeah, I was there.
Sandy: And then you left.
Whip: Something happened after I left?
Sandy: I was given a drink, um... tequila, I think. It was drugged. And--and when I woke up a lot of hours later... I was really messed up. (Inhales sharply)
Whip: Who, Aggie?
Sandy: (Sniffles) I don't know. I don't know. (Laughs) I went to the hospital, and they took D.N.A. tests, and the police were brought in.
Whip: Just tell me that they caught him, okay?
Whip: Tell me-- tell me they caught the guy.
Sandy: No. He's still out there somewhere.
Stephanie: I think about Eric and you and your brother and your sister working so hard to make this company a success, and I'm really worried that your children are not going to get their due.
Ridge: My kids have always believed that there's a legacy here at Forrester for them.
Stephanie: Well, there should be, and there would be if it weren't for the Logan girls.
Ridge: All right, please tell me you're not here to beat up Brooke and her sisters.
Stephanie: I'm not here to beat up anybody. I'm here to support you, but you've got to face the reality. The three of them are running the company. You can't deny that.
Ridge: That's gonna change.
Stephanie: Oh, really? Before or after they bring the rest of the clan over and take the business over completely?
Katie: I mean, do you understand what I'm saying? As prepared as you are, this seems a little like a retread.
Steffy: Hollywood Glamour was a retro look at classic Hollywood fashion. But the After Party is--is a piping hot modern collection of dresses designed for the youth market that we're after.
Katie: There are rumors circulating everywhere about this daring breakout collection that we suddenly canceled. E-Everyone is clamoring to see what we're gonna do next. I mean, how is it gonna look if we just reload Hollywood Glamour and pass it off as our brilliant new campaign?
Brooke: Katie has a point. Even if it were terrific, people will talk.
Steffy: They'll talk about how incredible it is. We're appealing to a whole new demographic. The print ads, the media-- it'll all be different.
Katie: How are you gonna accomplish that?
Steffy: I want you to meet someone. Madison, could you let in Graham? Thank you.
Brooke: Taylor, what are you doing here?
Taylor: Well, I was waiting outside for Steffy, and he invited me in.
Steffy: Everyone, I'd like you to meet Graham Darros.
Brooke: You're a photographer.
Donna: And a very good photographer if you're the same Graham Darros who did the River Reed Festival in Vancouver.
Graham: Well, thank you. Since then, I've, uh, actually been working a lot in Europe, but now that I am back, I would so love to turn your After Party campaign into the success I know it can be.
Katie: How did you hear about it?
Graham: Well, Steffy tracked me down, actually. She sold me on it. I think it's brilliant. I mean, a fashion house as renowned as Forrester just never quite took advantage of the youth market, and I've been lucky enough to make a career out of promoting that market. Anyways, you guys are in your, uh, your meeting. I'll, uh, I'll just wait outside for your decision, okay? Ladies.
Steffy: We can't miss with this guy shooting our layouts. Everything he touches turns into success. Profits, Katie-- your husband will love that.
Katie: Great. Hope, you're up.
Steffy: Up for what?
Katie: Uh, Hope has an idea that she would like to pitch for a new collection. Hope, the floor is all yours.
Whip: Why didn't you tell me? I would have helped.
Sandy: I couldn't tell you. I couldn't-- I couldn't even look at you or any man for a long time.
Whip: I'm so sorry.
Whip: Okay. I'm sorry. I can't imagine what you must have been feeling.
Whip: (Inhales sharply) It kills me that I couldn't do anything for you.
Sandy: It's okay. You know what? Nick has really-- he's really helping me with this, and the police are on it now.
Whip: Oh, now? That's great. (Sighs)
Sandy: Yeah. They, um, explained to me about budget cuts and, you know, the expense of D.N.A. testing. (Sniffles) But... (Sniffles) I just--it really got to me, you know, that there's so many women that are just like me, and they're waiting for answers, for answers for crimes that should put a guy away for the rest of his life. And I don't know. I know that the police are gonna turn it around, and they're gonna process all of those kits, and they're gonna put those criminals--
Whip: Aggie, Aggie, Aggie, listen to me. I need...
Whip: (Sighs) I need for you to talk to me about the party and who was there.
Ridge: Look, I refuse to believe that Brooke and her sisters want to turn Forrester Creations into Logan Creations. Brooke is my wife. She wants to see me running this company.
Stephanie: Not sneaking anymore children in, are they? I mean, we've got Rick... (Laughs) and now, for goodness sakes, Marcus.
Ridge: Well, Marcus is doing a great job.
Ridge: There's no conspiracy going on here.
Stephanie: I just don't want to see Taylor’s children passed over.
Ridge: Steffy and Thomas are always gonna have a place in this company. Who knows? Maybe someday, they'll be running it.
Stephanie: I hope so. I see Taylor a lot, you know.
Ridge: Well, I imagine you would. You're living with her.
Stephanie: She's doing very well, now that you ask.
Ridge: I'm glad.
Stephanie: Of course, on the other hand, I'm sure she'd-- well, never mind.
Ridge: Thank you.
Stephanie: Oh, no. I was gonna tell you she's dating someone.
Hope: Well, it's simple, really, almost too simple. Um, a new generation, my generation, going out into the world to make their mark-- college, that first job, so much to live for, so much to dress for. Now what kids don't have-- the only thing they don't have-- is money, but we still want to look great, you know, dress to kill, be on the forefront of whatever that new fashion trend might be. So where do we spend our money? Well, a chunk of that is on clothes, clothes that not only set us apart, but, yes, make a statement. And what is that statement? What does my generation stand for? How does the world view this new fledgling group of young adults? As hope, hope for the future and, thus, the name of the new line-- clothes that define what we stand for, clothes that give us an identity-- you know, a line so raw, so edgy, so out there. I present to you Forrester’s new campaign-- Hope for the Future.
Steffy: Wait a minute. You're naming the line after yourself.
Hope: Kind of, but it's really naming it after a concept, you know, one that defines my generation.
Steffy: You can't be seriously considering this.
Donna: I think it's pretty unique.
Brooke: You have to admit, it is pretty compelling.
Katie: I love it. Hope for the Future.
Hope: Oh, well, you're the one--
Katie: We're going with it.
Katie: Yes, absolutely.
Steffy: What about Hollywood Glamour?
Katie: Well, Steffy, what we have here are two really great ideas. One of them is maybe a little stale. The other one is a breath of fresh air, easily marketable. We'll cancel Glamour.
Steffy: You're cancelling a successful line.
Taylor: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Where's the hook? I mean, how can you design an entire line around the word "hopeful"? What--I mean, what are they gonna be made of, you--3-ring binders, paper?
Brooke: My husband will come up with the designs, and I'm sure they'll be fabulous.
Katie: And Steffy will work closely with Hope to market her concept.
Steffy: Is this really a good concept, Katie, or is there something more going on here?
Ridge: Whip Jones?
Stephanie: Yeah, they're seeing quite a bit of each other. It's nothing serious. I'm--I'm sure he's not her first preference.
Ridge: Mother, I have way too much going on to worry about Taylor’s love life.
Stephanie: (Laughs) I bet you do with those three girls undoing all the hard work you and Eric have done.
Ridge: Okay, you can stop with that now.
Stephanie: So you're going to continue to work here under Katie’s shadow?
Ridge: I'm just biding my time.
Stephanie: Are you happy, honey?
Ridge: (Sighs) My kids, uh, that's what makes me happy-- having Steffy and Thomas here, watching them develop their talent. Steffy came up with a great Hollywood Glamour line. It was brilliant. Now she's got a sequel to that that I think will be equally as exciting.
Stephanie: Good for her. I got to get back to the office. I have a meeting.
Ridge: I'll walk you to your car. Come on.
Stephanie: Oh, how nice. Thank you very much. Sweetheart... don't trust anyone. Didn't I teach you that a long time ago?
Ridge: Right. Everyone's out to get me, including my wife.
Sandy: Whip, you don't have to take this on, okay?
Sandy: Now the police are on it, and Nick has been a godsend, but listen to me. You don't say a word about this to Bridget-- not a word, okay? I don't want her to stress out about this, and I know that she will.
Whip: (Sighs) Okay. It's been quite a few years, actually, anyway. (Sighs) what was that photographer's name? Um... was it Gordon? No, Graham, right?
Sandy: Graham. Yes, Graham.
Sandy: I think he's actually hit it big since then-- Graham Darros.
Graham: They took a pass on your After Party project?
Steffy: Yeah. Look, I'm--I'm so sorry I wasted your time.
Graham: No, no. You didn’t. I'm just--I'm surprised. It was a winner, Steff.
Steffy: Well, maybe they'll want you to shoot Hope. (Sighs)
Graham: (Sighs) Well, you--you're probably not gonna want to hear this, but she's a beautiful girl. I'd probably enjoy it. I just-- (Clicks tongue) I don't know. I just feel bad for you.
Steffy: Oh, it is so obvious Katie has it out for me. I'd like to put her in her place. Maybe I should.
Taylor: Brooke... (Scoffs) you have got to talk to your sister. Hope has zero experience.
Brooke: Maybe that's what we need-- a new approach.
Taylor: No, that-- (Scoffs) is exactly what Steffy is qualified to do. Look at the success of the-- of the Hollywood Glamour line. Look how great that was. It only makes common business sense that she would be the one to follow it up.
Brooke: She'll have other chances to do that, but this is Hope's moment.
Taylor: Your daughter's moment, you mean.
Brooke: The decision's been made.
Taylor: Well, have you thought about how this is going to affect your marriage? You know why Ridge is here. The only reason he is still here after everything he's been through-- it's a miracle he didn't leave a long time ago. The only reason he's here is because of his daughter. This is her legacy, and when he finds out that his daughter has been passed over for yours, he is not going to be happy.
Brooke: Taylor, it didn't happen that way.
Taylor: I was there, Brooke. That's exactly what happened.
Brooke: Gosh, you don't know anything about this business. What Hope did today was huge, and Ridge will see that.
Taylor: No, Ridge is going to be pushed to his ultimate limit. He will walk, Brooke, and it won't be just from this company.
Brooke: Oh, I see. (Chuckles) That's good. Yeah, you would really love that, wouldn't you? You've always had this glimmer of hope that you two would get back together.
Taylor: Okay, fine. Fine. You know, don't say you haven't been warned.
Brooke: You are so transparent, all this so-called advice that you give, when really, you're just trying to stir up trouble, and this time you're using our children. How pathetic.
Taylor: Ooh. W-Wow.
Ridge: What's going on?
Taylor: Hmm. You want to tell him?
Brooke: Yes. Yes, I do.
Brooke: A decision's been made about the promotional campaign.
Ridge: Well, we're gonna be going with the Hollywood Glamour line, right?
Brooke: Well, we decided to go with something new, actually. Um, it's-- it's something different. We're going in a different direction.
Ridge: What direction is that?
Brooke: Mm. It's called Hope-- Hope for the Future.
Ridge: Steffy's idea?
Brooke: No. It was Hope's, actually.
Ridge: Your daughter, our new intern-- you chose her idea over Steffy’s?
Brooke: Uh, okay, I can see you're not really happy with this, but you know what? It's really a great concept, and if you just give me a chance to tell you about it... Ridge?
Ridge: Logan, I helped Steffy with that presentation. She believes in it, and so do I. But you and your sisters went to your teenaged daughter's idea instead of Steffy’s? What's going on here? This--this time, I'm afraid you've gone too far here. I've had enough.
Brooke: Ridge, wait.
Ridge: No. This is it. Brooke, I'm done, finished.
Brooke: What are you saying?
Ridge: I'm telling you it's over.
