Brooke: (Sighs) Here's your nachos, Dad, just the way you like them.
Stephen: Oh, honey. (Sighs) I told you not to go to any trouble.
Brooke: (Scoffs) You sound just like Hope and R.J. They hardly want me to do anything for them anymore.
Stephen: They will. Just don't wait for them to ask. You girls are the same way.
Brooke: We are?
Stephen: Yes. Honey, tell me what you know about Pamela Douglas.
Brooke: Stephanie's sister? More than you want to hear.
Stephanie: Oh, for-- he--hello?
Pam: Oh, I'm coming. I'm coming! Hold it.
Stephanie: Pam, what are you doing?
Pam: Stephanie, hold on! Gosh.
Stephanie: What, have you got desperate characters hanging around when I'm not here, banging the door down?
Pam: (Scoffs) A woman alone can't be too careful.
Stephanie: Oh, for God sakes. You sound just like Mother.
Pam: Oh, thanks.
Stephanie: Oh, what's that smell? What smells so good?
Pam: You know how my baking relaxes me.
Stephanie: Do I have to be concerned about you?
Pam: Not if it means another blind date.
Stephanie: Jarrett wasn't a blind date.
Pam: Steph, it really is okay that you're getting your husband and your home back. Just 'cause I don't have a life doesn't mean that I don't want you to have one.
Donna: You don't have to stay.
Justin: Just ignore me and go about your business.
Donna: (Sighs) Yeah, I don't really have any business here. I'm just the sister-in-law on the sofa.
Justin: And Eric knows that. Once he receives our proposal for the divorce settlement, he'll call or come knocking. I don't want you to be alone, because you'll give in to him.
Eric: That's just a sash. I guess it will be fine.
Steffy: Are you busy?
Eric: No, not really. What do you got there?
Steffy: This was just messengered over to you. (Sighs) Want me to put it in your mailbox?
Eric: No, no, I'll take it.
Steffy: It's from Donna, or I'm guessing her attorney, since it's the same address as the Spencer Building downtown.
Eric: Well, Spencer swore that he'd get his revenge. I guess, uh... I guess now we're gonna find out what it is.
Donna: He won't call. He won't knock. He's... he's done with me.
Justin: You're not as forgettable as you think.
Donna: Stephanie told me a lot of things that... that I thought were lies about Eric, you know? And most of them were. But she did tell me that he likes life light and easy, pleasant. That was true. You know, I used to be light and easy. And then my mother died. And I guess it's just not pleasant to, uh, hold somebody accountable. I know he loves me. And I-I thought that that's all I'd ever need from him or want from him, but... I guess I was wrong.
Eric: Well, Justin Barber is assisting her with the divorce.
Steffy: She's putting up a fight?
Eric: Oh, she'll agree not to contest it in exchange for half of my share of Forrester Creations.
Steffy: Wh--Granddad, n-no. We have come way too far. We cannot let the Logans get their foot back in the door.
Stephanie: All right, well, how about if we go out and have lunch?
Pam: Well, I can't today. I'm busy. I mean, I know it seems terribly unimportant to you, my baking, but it's what I like.
Stephanie: Uh... who says you don't have a life? What am I?
Pam: My temporary roommate.
Stephanie: All right, then. How about we get dressed up and go out and have dinner?
Pam: Oh, all right. That sounds nice.
Stephanie: Good. Pammy, um, Stephen Logan isn't the reason that you're putting the chain on the door, is it?
Pam: Steph, arranging dates for me is not gonna undo the past. I am who I am. And if I'm too strange or boring to have a boyfriend, well, I'm just not gonna waste time feeling bad about it. So please, don't you.
Brooke: Pam is kind of a special case. Why do you ask?
Stephen: Well, I-I see her, and I-I don't know what to think.
Brooke: Why? What did she say to you? Dad? Just steer clear of her. Okay? She's kind of a nutcase, and that's on a good day when she's on her medication. And if she's not, well... I mean, thanks to Donna, she's not locked up. I have to wonder what a wise decision that was. I think that woman's capable of anything.
Stephen: Wasn't there some kind of surgery to fix something wrong in Pam's brain?
Brooke: They did remove some scar tissue from her brain that supposedly was causing a lot of her violence. But if you ask me, Pam's problem can't be surgically removed... and that's blind loyalty.
Stephen: To Stephanie?
Brooke: Mm-hmm. But just between you and me, I don't understand that. Pam has always had the short end of the stick all of her life. And then Stephanie decides to play it safe and take care of herself, and she leaves. And she leaves Pam at the mercy of their mother. I don't understand why those two don't have issues. But Pam is like her late, lamented Doberman. She's Stephanie’s attack dog. That's all she's ever known how to be.
Stephanie: Who thinks that you're strange, and who thinks you're boring? I want names.
Pam: I wasn't asking for a poll, okay? (Scoffs)
Stephanie: Pammy, what's it all about? I mean, is this about me staying here with you?
Pam: When have I ever objected to you actually sticking around, Steph?
Stephanie: Okay, I know it was very selfish of me to get married and have a family.
Pam: No. No, I never said that.
Stephanie: Where is this all coming from?
Pam: (Sighs) Look, I'm not unhappy, okay? I do just fine most of the time. But send me out on dates with men, and okay, maybe I begin to notice that I'm not like other people. I am who I am. And it's no accident, as you should know better than anyone.
Stephanie: I think you're missing Mother.
Pam: Missing her? Do you know how many times I wanted her dead? Which I feel guilty about, too.
Stephanie: Okay, uh, I'll just come back at 6:00. Uh, you be ready...
Stephanie: And I'll take you to that new, uh, fusion place over on San Vicente, the one that everybody says is so good.
Pam: Okay. Okay.
Stephanie: I'd like you to think about something for a minute, okay?
Stephanie: Sometimes in life, we make false choices. You know... you blame me for leaving you with Mother all of those years. You thought that one of us had to be with her, or to at least take turns, right? The truth is Mother didn't need either one of us. Mother was really taking care of you. You really wanted some gratitude for that. You didn't get it from her or from me. Pammy, she loved us in her own peculiar way. But she didn't need us. You've got to come to terms with that. You've got to make peace with that.
Eric: You are not going to enlist me in this campaign of yours to eradicate the Logans from this family and from this company.
Steffy: Open the door to them, and you're opening it to Bill Spencer. That's all I'm saying, Granddad. Offer Donna money, real estate, whatever she wants. But let any part of Forrester fall back in the hands of Bill Spencer, and that's the beginning of the end.
(Cell phone rings)
Donna: You were right.
Donna: Hello, Eric.
Eric: Donna, I want to see you.
Donna: See me?
Justin: (Whispers) No.
Eric: Look, we can't resolve anything if we leave it to lawyers. You and I used to be able to talk about anything.
Donna: Until my mother drowned in our swimming pool... not accidentally, may I add, but y-you don't want to discuss that, do you?
Eric: Donna, look--
Donna: Eric, do you really think I wanted it to come to this? My God, I'm sorry, but your share of Forrester is community property, and I'm entitled to half. In point of fact, my sisters are entitled to-- to much more, Eric. My mother would not want me to walk away from everything that we've done at Forrester. And I can’t. I'm sorry. I have to do this, Eric. It's not for me. It's for my family. It's for the Logans.
(Phone hangs up)
Justin: You okay? Sticking up for yourself never came easy for you.
Donna: (Sighs) Heck of a way to go through life.
Justin: (Sighs) If anyone had a complaint with the choices you've made, I figured it'd be me. And I don’t.
Justin: Anyway, Donna, you haven't gone through life. You're just beginning.
Steffy: Oh, community property, my foot. If you and Donna had kids together, would she want you to split them in half, too?
Eric: Listen, kid, you might think of me just as "old grandpa" here, but you and I have never tangled. Now I know how to stand my ground. Donna will get a fair settlement, but she will not have a share in this company.
Steffy: Thank you.
Eric: Now here, I have a job for you. I want you to get in touch with your dad and your uncle Thorne and everybody else in the immediate family and tell them to meet me at the house tonight, 7:00 sharp. Uh, formal.
Steffy: Formal? Wow. Me, too?
Eric: Yes, a-and you and Thomas.
Steffy: Okay, cool. Sounds fun.
Eric: Now don't-- don't say a word to your grandmother. I want to tell her myself.
Steffy: No, I think she went out to lunch.
Steffy: This isn't about the divorce or anything? Because if it is...
Eric: No, no. But it's not unrelated.
Stephanie: Hey, uh... uh, has anybody...
(Cell phone rings)
Stephanie: Seen Madison? I've been--I can't figure out-- hang on. Excuse me.
Eric: I have an idea. Why don't we both, uh, put down our weapons?
Stephanie: (Chuckles) Well, I thought you'd never ask.
Stephen: So you think if Pam has an agenda, it's not her own?
Brooke: Well, left alone, she and Donna managed to get along just fine. It's just when Stephanie claims that she's insulted or hurt in some way, it's Pam to the rescue. And all that Pam really has on Donna is that Donna married Stephanie’s man.
Stephen: So Pam does everything she can to make your sister's life hell. Did she do it for Stephanie, or because she has her own ax to grind?
Brooke: (Sighs) I don't know. I mean, the woman is half-crazed. I'm no fan of Pam's. But we all just want to be loved. I-I don't think she was very successful at winning her mother's love, so she keeps trying to earn Stephanie’s. I mean, it's really the only person that she has. I mean, if there was just somebody else that took notice of her, that paid attention to her, I mean, maybe things would be different.
Thorne: Gee, did I interfere with your eavesdropping?
Steffy: Oh, I wish you could, but I can't hear a thing.
Steffy: No, no, no. They don't need that right now. You cannot go in.
Thorne: Why not?
Steffy: Oh, Granddad wants you over at the house for dinner tonight.
Thorne: Hey, now what--
Pam: Hi, kids.
Thorne: Why does he--
Thorne: (Sighs) Pam, um, you're not supposed to be here today. Remember?
Pam: Oh, you mean, 'cause it's my day off?
Pam: Yeah, I know, but I did some baking and, uh, I thought I'd share the wealth. Why--why were you all waiting outside? Is the door locked?
Steffy: Uh, Granddad's in there. He wanted to talk to Grandma alone. And I don't think it's about business.
Thorne: What, do you think he's gonna ask her to move back in?
Eric: It has come to my attention that you've been leaving the grounds for lunch.
Stephanie: (Chuckles) What, am I supposed to be chained to the desk?
Eric: Well, you're part owner now. I have expectations of you.
Stephanie: Are you actually telling me that I'm supposed to keep my nose to the grindstone?
Eric: What are you doing for dinner tonight?
Stephanie: Uh, oh, I've got plans. I just made them, as a matter of fact.
Eric: Yeah, well, call them and tell them that you forgot a previous engagement from half a lifetime ago.
Justin: I probably should get going.
Donna: Oh, I-I just want to thank you for everything that you've done.
Justin: I could do a lot more if you'd let me.
Donna: (Chuckles) Justin.
Justin: I know. I know. It's too soon. The timing's all wrong. And, well, what else is new?
Justin: But this time around, I don't want to have a lot of question marks. So this time, I'm gonna make sure that what I feel and how much I want it is crystal clear to you.
Brooke: Dad, is that all you're gonna eat?
Stephen: I'm sorry, honey. It was delicious. Uh, listen, you-- you haven't said whether you think Pam Douglas is dangerous by herself or because Stephanie uses her.
Brooke: (Chuckles) Gosh. What difference does it make?
Stephen: Honey, humor me.
Brooke: All right. Okay. I'll be blunt. Pam is my husband's aunt, so I have to be very respectful, but I really think she's unbalanced. She's mentally underdeveloped. She was impressionable as a child. And she has all these reserves of rage that's ready to boil over at any moment. I mean, I really believe that Stephanie could have gotten Pam to kill for her if she set her mind to it.
Stephanie: Uh, no, I-I couldn't do that on the phone. Uh, I'd have to wait until I see her.
Stephanie: Pam, my roommate. She's so sensitive these days.
Eric: Well, why don't you bring her along? She can come, too.
Stephanie: What kind of dinner is this?
Stephanie: Well, she'd understand.
Stephanie: What's that?
Eric: Here, this is what you're going to wear tonight.
Stephanie: (Laughs) You haven't told me what to wear in years.
Eric: Well, you seem a hair more manageable these days.
Stephanie: Oh. I think I would have liked being a more manageable woman. The problem was I-I always thought I knew what was best.
Eric: Yeah, well, you usually did.
Stephanie: You're right.
Stephanie: I was so young last year.
Stephanie: Okay, I'll come to your dinner.
Stephanie: Uh, what can I bring?
Eric: Uh, an open mind.
Stephanie: Oh, I think I have one of those in storage.
Eric: All right. Good. It's best to, uh, it's best to be prepared, all right?
Eric: I'll see you at 7:00 sharp.
Stephanie: You're just terrible when you think you have some secret that you've got.
Eric: Well, that's exactly what I was going for.
Stephanie: Yeah, well, it doesn't do you any good, 'cause I read you like a book.
Eric: Read this.
Thorne: No, I still don't hear a thing.
Pam: No, me either. But I think Steffy's right. I think tonight might be the--the big night.
Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. It was only a matter of time.
Pam: (Whispers) You're gonna open it?
Thorne: (Whispering indistinctly)
Steffy: (Whispers) I'm going to.
Thorne: (Gasps) (Whispers) Did you see that? Oh, my God. Oh, my God. (Normal voice) It really could. It could happen tonight. What we've all been hoping for-- Mom and Dad back together. (Chuckles) Finally the Forrester family united.
Stephanie: Whoa! Take a girl's breath away.
Eric: You know, it's funny. I always thought... I thought it was always gonna last forever.
Stephanie: Well, that's because I let you. I didn't want you to worry.
Eric: 'Cause it was your job to worry.
Stephanie: And the things that I worried about, you know, never happened. It was the things I never saw coming.
Eric: I'll see you tonight. This will be an evening that neither one of us will ever forget.
