Thomas: Mom, you are overreacting.
Taylor: I am not overreacting. I'm standing here looking at a picture of you and Brooke half-naked backstage at a fashion preview, and that picture is floating around all over the internet.
Brooke: Taylor, it's not how it looks. That's what we've been trying to tell you.
Taylor: Okay, fine. Then I would like you to explain it to me. Tell me, how did this accident happen, this mistake? I can't wait to hear this one.
Aggie: How did you pull it off? I know you took this picture. I know you took this picture of Brooke and Thomas.
Whip: You know what? I think the less you know the better at this point, cuz. Just leave it at that.
Aggie: Whip, listen to me. You're the king of brilliant ideas.
Aggie: But you're playing a very dangerous game right now.
Whip: (Clears throat)
Aggie: You realize that?
Bill: I guess I missed the flashing neon "Spencer Motel" sign.
Liam: Dad, I thought you were leaving early. You said we could have dinner here.
Bill: Well, I am back. We need to talk about your party for tomorrow.
Liam: (Stammers) Party? What party?
Bill: I'm throwing tomorrow. An extravaganza in your honor.
Liam: Are you serious? Party?
Bill: I am serious. It's gonna be a, uh, huge Spencer Publications event introducing you to the world as my son. I'm talking Dollar Bill big. (Chuckles) Media, shareholders, the works. So you need to be at the top of your game, Son.
Amber: Do you know much Bill Spencer is worth
Oliver: I don't know. Millions?
Amber: At least a billion.
Oliver: Good for him.
Amber: Which means his son is worth quite a pretty penny.
Oliver: Yeah, Liam's gonna be a rich guy.
Amber: He's already loaded, which makes him irresistible. (Sighs) Very irresistible.
Oliver: Money doesn't keep people happy, Amber.
Amber: I'm sorry Oliver. What did we have for dinner tonight? Hmm? Oh, microwaved noddles? What did we have last night?
Oliver: I'm not a culinary expert. But you're not starving.
Amber: I know, and I appreciate that. But that's no way to live. I want steak, and I want lobster, and I want to be able to fly to Paris on a whim. (sighs) I'm sorry. I know you're content with this life, but I'm just not.
Oliver: (Scoffs) If money means turning into someone like Bill Spencer, no thanks. The guy is a power-hungry control freak. The way I see it, that's not the way to live.
Bill: As my son your persona is everything. Have you seen the image consultant Katie set up for you?
Hope: I think he means your image as the jet-setting single man.
Bill: Nothing personal, Hope.
Hope: Of course not. You're just doing what's best for Liam.
Liam: Hey, Dad, I-I-I appreciate everything you're doing for me and-- and our relationship--
Bill: This party is an integral step for the future of Spencer Publications and our family.
Aggie: You know there could be serious ramifications because of this photograph.
Whip: (Scoffs) I imagine that there could be.
Aggie: Uh, what are you gonna do if Ridge leaves Brooke over this photograph, and he decides to go after Taylor?
Whip: That is not gonna happen, okay? Taylor loves me. Our marriage is solid. Aggie, Ridge is gonna keep allowing this whole Taboo line against Taylor's wishes. She's starting to become very disillusioned with him, and it's only gonna get worse. And that's when I'm gonna be the one who's laughing.
Brooke: We told you, Taylor. The dressing room assignments got changed somehow.
Taylor: Oh, come on, Brooke. Please, you couldn't just tell Thomas to leave the dressing room? Ridge!
Brooke: Ridge, can you please explain to Taylor how chaotic it can get backstage?
Ridge: Look, I don't know how this happened. Yes, it was poor judgment. There was pressure to get dressed, a mix-up with the showstopper outfits and the dressing rooms, but you shouldn't have changed together in the same room. That wasn't appropriate.
Taylor: Thank you. Thank you. I am so glad we see eye to eye. I would like to have a minute with Ridge alone, please.
Brooke: Anything you have to say to Ridge, you can say in front of me.
Ridge: Logan, just give us a minute, will you, please?
Taylor: Ridge, I don't care how much money this line makes. I-I don't care about our son becoming famous. It isn't worth it. I--you just can't accept this any longer.
Liam: So you’re gonna be my date tomorrow night?
Hope: Of course I am.
Bill: Yeah, about that.
Bill: You're gonna be a very busy man tomorrow night-- a meeting with shareholders, interviews, photo ops. This is not the high school prom. It's business.
Hope: He doesn’t want me to go.
Bill: You're just not gonna have a lot of fun, Hope. I mean, Liam is gonna be pulled in a million different directions.
Hope: Hey, I get it. You don't want me to cramp his style.
Liam: That would be impossible. Dad, I-I know you want to introduce me to the world as your-- your powerful bachelor son, but Hope means too much to me to leave out.
Bill: If that's how you want it to be, okay.
Amber: Just wanna have money again.
Oliver: That'd be great. Then you could help me pay some of the rent while you're livin' above the garage.
Amber: Oliver, I would if I could. You know that. But I have credit card companies breathing down my neck. Nobody’ll hire me. I'm just-- I'm really struggling here.
Oliver: Join the club. I'm still payin' off student loans.
Amber: Aren't you tired of it, hmm, living this way?
Oliver: My life isn't half bad. I get to live at the beach. I got a decent job.
Amber: Something's missing, though.
Oliver: Hope is the only thing missing for me.
Amber: Well, if I can get my hands Liam you might just get her back.
Taylor: No more scandal. We talked about this. One more scandal, and--and you said that, that was it, that you were going to pull the plug on this line.
Ridge: I know, but I'm not gonna hold this against Brooke. You've gotta let this go.
Taylor: What? You're just giving her a free pass on this?
Ridge: Brooke had nothing to do with that photo, Taylor.
Taylor: (Scoffs) How are you gonna handle this then Ridge, what, are you just gonna keep hanging Thomas out there like bait, just waiting for the next time for Brooke to strike?
Ridge: Look, if I believed Thomas was gonna be in harm's way because of this, I wouldn't continue with this line at all. But it's about stirring the pot, creating buzz, gaining revenue for our company. This is not about Thomas and Brooke. Nothing is gonna happen between our son and my wife. I promise you that.
Taylor: (Scoffs) (Scoffs)
Thomas: Well, I don't hear any furniture smashed. That's a good sign. Maybe mom's calming down.
Brooke: (Sighs) Well, that's it. I've waited out here long enough. (Sighs)
Taylor: I'm looking at this rundown from the fashion preview, and things are scratched out, dressing room assignments are changed. This wasn't an accident.
Brooke: What? Are--are you saying that I tried to seduce Thomas?
Taylor: I don't know, but I want it to stop.
Brooke: (Sighs) Oh, God.
Thomas: Dad, you have got to trust Brooke and me please, do not pull the plug on Taboo. The line's doin’ great. We just got started. I want to keep going.
Ridge: I'll allow the line to continue.
Thomas: Oh! (Chuckles)
Ridge: But, Thomas...
Thomas: Thank you.
Ridge: This is it. You've only got one more chance.
Thomas: Yes. I promise nothing like this will happen again.
Taylor: I'm so... disappointed in you. I cannot believe you're allowing this to go on. Then again, it doesn't surprise me, because you're blind when it comes to Brooke. I hope you don't regret your decision. I really don't. Keep your clothes on around my son!
Thomas: Mom, wait.
Oliver: If you want to be rich so badly, maybe you should buy a lottery ticket.
Amber: Oh, that's silly. No one wins the lottery.
Oliver: You gotta a better chance to win the lottery than you do at winning Liam. Trust me.
Amber: Oh you have never seen the real Amber Moore in action.
Oliver: That's not my point. The guy is totally in love with Hope.
Amber: Oh, I know, or so he thinks.
Oliver: He is. And what-- you just want him 'cause he's rich.
Amber: No. Liam is hot. And he's--he's really sweet. You know, when I was pretending to be his limo driver, he was so panicked he was missing her party, he-he, he was just, he was freaking out. I could tell he really cared about her. And it was kind of cute.
Oliver: If he is so committed to Hope, why would you go after him? Seriously, Amber give it up.
Amber: Why? You haven't given up on Hope.
Oliver: That's different. I'm never giving up on her.
Amber: Because you love her, and she still loves you. You can sit around and mope about your life, missing Hope. That's your choice. But don’t judge me because I want to get something better for myself.
Over: And Liam is the key?
Amber: Well, he sure could be.
Brooke: Thomas really appreciates you sticking with the line.
Ridge: It was the right decision.
Brooke: You've been put in a terrible position.
Ridge: Taylor's not too thrilled with me right now.
Brooke: All because of me and that damn photo.
Ridge: Logan, this isn't your fault.
Brooke: I'm really sorry, Ridge. I honestly don't know how this happened. But I need you to forgive me one more time. Please? Just say you'll forgive me.
Whip: (Sighs) So what happened?
Thomas: Some one took a risqué photo of Brooke and me.
Whip: Yeah, I, uh, I saw. Looks like somebody was in the right place at the wrong time.
Thomas: Yeah, well, whoever it was caused a huge uproar.
Taylor: (Breathing heavily)
Whip: Hey, honey, you okay?
Taylor: I don't even know where to begin.
Thomas: Look, Mom, I'm sorry you're upset, and you--I know that you hate that I'm working with Brooke, and you're convinced something awful is going to happen, but--
Taylor: (Sighs) I've been right so far.
Thomas: No, Mom, you have not. Nothing has happened between Brooke and me. Nothing will ever.
Thomas: (Scoffs) Mom.
Thomas: I love you.
Amber: I have had a taste of the good life, and I am really hungry for it again. When I was married to Rick, it was like Christmas every day.
Oliver: You said the Forresters never really accepted you.
Amber: Oh, they didn't, but it was still the best time of my life.
Oliver: Amber, that is pathetic
Amber: You don't know what it's like, Oliver. When you walk into a room as a Forrester, you get the royal treatment. It's like-- it's like the clouds part, and the sun comes shining through. You know, you could have that, Oliver. If you hook up with Hope, all your money problems could disappear.
Oliver: I don't care about that.
Amber: Well, I do. All I need is an opening, and when I get one-- I will get one-- I'm going after William Spencer III so fast, he's not gonna know what hit him.
Hope: I would be extremely honored to be your date at tomorrow night's soiree, Mr. William Spencer III...
Hope: Even if your dad would rather I didn't go.
Liam: I would totally boycott my own party if you couldn't come.
Hope: Aw. That’s some serious love. (Laughs)
Hope: But seriously, seriously, are you sure it’s okay if I go?
Liam: The only thing keeping me from totally freaking out is knowing that you're gonna be there. I need you there. Tomorrow gonna be a really big night for me, and I want to share it with the woman I love, okay?
Hope: 'Kay. (Laughs)
Whip: Here you go. So how did, uh, Ridge react to the photo of Brooke and Thomas?
Taylor: He was shocked and very upset. And then he just blew the whole thing off and looked the other way just like he always does with Brooke.
Whip: I just don't understand how he can keep allowing Brooke and Thomas to work together so closely.
Taylor: I don't know. I don't know. I guess as long as the line is a success, anything goes. Bro--Brooke can just drag Thomas into another scandal, and Ridge will just look the other way. Just, you know... I-I'm scared to death for--for my son, Whip.
Whip: Well, honey, sweetheart, I-I-I completely feel the se way as you do. I just... it's a very dangerous situation. You know, Brooke's a loose cannon.
Taylor: Finally-- I am so glad somebody sees this the way do. I am so grateful to have you on my side. I am.
Whip: (Chuckles) I think like you do.
Taylor: Mm. (sniffles)
Whip: You know, I-I just--I just think as long as Brooke and Thomas continue to work together, this isn't gonna stop.
Whip: There's gonna continue to be these kind of incidents.
Whip: I just feel that.
Brooke: Ridge, I will stop working on the Taboo line if you want me to. Our marriage means more to me than anything.
Rid: It's the most important thing to me, too.
Brooke: I really hate this tension between us.
Ridge: Logan, these things can't keep happening. They can't.
Brooke: I know. I know. I don't want to do anything that's going to jeopardize our relationship.
Ridge: I believe you. And love you. Our marriage means more to me than all off this. Look, but all these things that have happened in the last few weeks-- the kiss on the runway, these racy pictures... (sighs) I know that you haven't crossed any lines, and I know that you're not going to.
Ridge: Besides, you've been a tremendous help with Thomas. All of your experience-- you've got a great eye for all this stuff. I know that.
Brooke: That's all I want to do is help your son.
Ridge: And you have. But you gotta hear me when I tell you nothing inappropriate can happen again-- never again.
Brooke: Okay, never. (Sighs) I promise. I promise.
Brooke: Thank you. You mean so much to me.
Ridge: (Sighs) You know what? You've got the worst luck of anyone I know.
Brooke: (Laughs) (Sighs) I don't know why these things keep happening to us, but it--it's like...
Brooke: Whatever is put in our way, we manage to get beyond it, and it just makes us stronger, Ridge. It makes our bond stronger and the feelings that we have for each other, and you are just such a wonderful, compassionate husband. I love you so much.
Ridge: Logan, I will always believe in you, and nothing is ever gonna come between us ever again. Okay?
Brooke: Yes. (Laughs) Okay.
Whip: (Sighs) (Sighs)
Taylor: Oh, yeah, Ridge. Oh, Ridge.
Whip: (Sighs) No, you mess with my marriage, I mess with yours. I'm not done with you yet, Ridge, not by a long shot.
