Taylor: I-I know it's-- it's shocking and... I hardly got any sleep last night. I-I debated whether or not I should even talk to you about it, but I-I-I realized that you have to know.
Ridge: Brooke and Thomas?
Taylor: Yes. Ridge, they kissed on the airplane on the way back from Paris. (Sighs) Your wife and our son were kissing.
Thomas: Well, I asked her not to say anything. Maybe she wonít.
Brooke: (Scoffs) This is your mother we're talking about. She'd go running to Ridge if she spotted me jaywalking.
Thomas: All right, you want to beat her to the punch? Let's--let's go talk to my dad right now, explain that kiss.
Brooke: I'm sure it's too late. She's probably telling him as we speak...
Brooke: And blowing it out of proportion in the process.
Thomas: Oh, I hope she does.
Thomas: Come on. You know how my mom gets-- arms waving, head bobbing, crazy end-of-the-world prophecies spewing out of her mouth my dad won't be able to take her seriously. Just let her rant all she wants. Okay? Then after she's done, we'll go in and calmly, rationally explain what happened.
Brooke: You try to do the right thing and protect people's feelings, but the truth always comes out.
Thomas: Right, but he'll be more mad at me than you.
Brooke: And that's what I'm afraid of. That's why wanted to keep this kiss a secret. I donít your relationship to suffer with him you both have been getting so close and working so well together.
Thomas: Brooke, that won't change. It was an innocent kiss. I was caught up in a moment. If anybody can understand that, it's him. Okay, I-I appreciate your concern, Brooke. But please don't worry about me. (Chuckles) My dad and I, we will be fine. I know how to handle him.
Taylor: It's something that I just--I didn't want to burden you with it. I would have rather been able to handle it myself. But, you know, we are Thomas' parents, and he's going through something, and we need to find a way to help him together.
Ridge: Taylor, look, I realize that you've been very stressed lately.
Taylor: I'm not making this up.
Ridge: Maybe you thought something else happened.
Taylor: No, no. I heard what was being said about it.
Ridge: You must have misunderstood.
Ridge: They were talking about another kiss. They were talking about the one that happened on the runway. That's all.
Taylor: I confronted Thomas about it this morning.
Ridge: Doc, you gotta stop doing this. You're alienating him. He's really getting very tired of all these accusations.
Taylor: They kissed on the plane on the way back from Paris, and Thomas admitted it.
Ridge: Maybe he was just playing some kind of joke on you.
Ridge: Taylor, I trust my wife. I have complete faith in her. And she would never allow something like that to happen.
Thomas: Well, let's get in there and get this over with.
Brooke: Wait. (Sighs) What if your mom's still in there, Thomas?
Thomas: If she's still in there...
Brooke: If she didn't tell him what happened yet, then I'm going to...
Brooke: Because I promised him I would keep no secrets, and I want to make good on that.
Thomas: (scoffs) Everything's gonna be fine. It was an innocent kiss, nothing scandalous about it. We just didn't want him to worry. He'll understand that.
Brooke: Yeah. I'm sure he will.
Taylor: I-I'm sorry, Ridge, but it--it is true.
Ridge: And how did this supposed kiss happen?
Taylor: Well, they were on the private jet, and, um, I-I think while Brooke was sleeping, Thomas became very... overwhelmed.
Ridge: She was sleeping.
Taylor: Well... (scoffs) Come on, Ridge. Of course that's an ideal situation. They're on a private jet. She may have been in her lounging pajamas. I don't know. But this is exactly what I tried to tell you would happen, and it has.
Ridge: So all this because of the Taboo line?
Taylor: You know, Ridge, really, it's sad anyway that--that Forrester Creations is--is making a profit from-- from Brookeís disgracing of the whole Forrester family. It's wrong anyway. If anything, this whole thing is encouraging Brooke. What is she going to do to top herself next?
Ridge: Okay so what do you propose?
Taylor: I think you should drop the Taboo line. That's the only thing I can think of. I know that Thomas would be upset, but I really think it's the only way to stop this thing from escalating. Pull the line, Ridge. Pull the line today.
Steffy: Hey. Thanks for comin'.
Steffy: You sounded distracted on the phone. Hope I'm not tearing you away from romancing the waitress or something.
Thomas: Just show me the photos.
Steffy: Wow. Somebody a little sensitive?
Thomas: I'm not sensitive. I'm just ignoring you. There's a difference.
Steffy: Okay, anyways, I like the first setup, but I just want to make sure Brooke doesn't look too slutty since I might be biased.
Steffy: (Scoffs) Okay, you're mad. I was joking about Dayzee, all right? Relax. Even though you and grandma are being conned.
Thomas: I'm not mad, Steffy.
Steffy: Well, something is up. You usually have some kind of, like, big-brotherish comeback to put me in my place. I'm not a fan of this suave complacency. Okay, spill it. What's going on?
Taylor: Thomas, I--
Stephanie: Sweetheart, hi.
Taylor: Oh, my goodness. Oh, Stephanie. Oh, thank God you are here. (Sniffles)
Stephanie: What's the matter, honey?
Stephanie: What is it?
Taylor: I can't believe I'm even going to have to say this, but Thomas and Brooke kissed on the way back from Paris on the planet they kissed. I found out about it last night, and Ridge knows about it. I don't see how Brooke is going to talk her way out of this one.
Brooke: Taylor's been here?
Ridge: She told me.
Brooke: Yes. I see it in your eyes.
Stephanie: You didnít tell this to Ridge?
Taylor: Yes. Yes, I had to.
Stephanie: (Scoffs) Taylor, I don't know what you think you saw, but I just cannot believe that Brooke--
Taylor: Well, I know what I heard, Stephanie. I heard it. And--an Thomas even admitted it to me. This is what I was trying to tell everyone about this Taboo campaign-- that it was a huge mistake, and it's gotta be ended. Even Ridge knows that now.
Stephanie: You're not being realistic. That--that Taboo line is making too much money. Ridge is not going to end it.
Taylor: Well, I-I believe he is. I believe he will do that now because he knows he has to protect his son from the inevitable.
Stephanie: The inevitable? As in sleeping with his stepmother?
Taylor: Well, isn't that what always happens, Stephanie?
Taylor: Especially to Forrester men who even make eye contact with her?
Stephanie: She's no gonna do this to Ridge.
Taylor: (Sighs) Look, Stephanie, I realize the two of you have gotten close lately. You've been through a lot of things together. And I-I just-- I-I don't know how, but somehow, she's gotten you to believe all of her lies. I don't-- well, no, actually, it is very easy to believe this sort of person. I-I mean, because they believe their lies themselves. Stephanie, listen to me. I need you to remember what kind of person she is and who she is. You need to stop and--and remember what it felt like when she got your husband to cheat on you with her and then she just ditched him and left your family in shambles, and then she went after both your sons. And I'm telling you, she is going to go after your grandson. You've got to listen to me.
Thomas: All right. (Sighs) Something is going on.
Steffy: I knew it. It's about Dayzee, isn't it?
Thomas: No. These are really good, by the way.
Thomas: Olive should be proud. I don't understand why you think Brooke looks slutty, though.
Steffy: Eh, I'd probably think it if she was wearing a parka in church. This is actually a cute one.
Thomas: I kissed her.
Steffy: Well, I-I didn't see any of those. Dad's not gonna want--
Thomas: No, Steffy, not on the shoot. We were on the plane back from Paris. She was sleeping. I was drawn in, and I kissed her.
Thomas: It's not a big deal.
Steffy: Are you kidding me?
Thomas: It was innocent, just a show of appreciation. I thought it would stay between us, but now mom knows. (Sighs) She's freaking out.
Steffy: Well, duh, Thomas. What the hell is wrong with you?
Thomas: Nothing. Steffy, it was an innocent kiss.
Steffy: Okay, so them's gonna tell Dad, and all hell is gonna break loose.
Thomas: She already has.
Steffy: Oh, my God.
Thomas: Brooke's in there right now sorting it out.
Steffy: Oh, my--sorting--
Steffy: Sorting it all out? Sorting it all out that-- that you kissed Brooke? (Scoffs) It's not gonna be that easy, Thomas, not at all.
Ridge: Taylor's crazy, right? Tell me she has no idea what she's talking about.
Brooke: (Sighs) Ridge, I'm sure she has you all worried about this.
Ridge: But you wouldn't do that. You wouldn't keep a secret from me, keep any secret from me, not after everything that's happened, everything you have promised me.
Brooke: No, no, of course not, nothing that was important. I mean, this was-- it was nothing.
Ridge: My son kisses you, and that's nothing?
Brooke: It just sounds worse than it was. If--if you had been there... you see, I-I was asleep.
Ridge: Yes, so I heard. And Thomas kissed you. That was his mistake. Your keeping it from me was yours. And it's a pretty damn big mistake.
Steffy: I can't believe this.
Thomas: Well, I thought I'd tell you before mom put her own spin on it.
Steffy: She's a psychiatrist I think I'll trust her version.
Thomas: Steffy, come on.
Steffy: Oh, it's bad enough that you would kiss Brooke, the woman who's caused so much pain for us over the years. God, Thomas, she is Dad's wife. What the hell were you thinking? Look, I don't know what she's doin you or how she--
Thomas: She's not making me do anything, Steffy. There's no black magic here, no Logan curse. Give me a little credit.
Thomas: I'd also appreciate a little support from my sister for once. Is that too much to ask?
Stephanie: Taylor. (Chuckles) I-I don't know what you want me to say.
Taylor: (Sighs) That I'm right, because you know I am.
Stephanie: Are you sure Thomas wasn't just trying to get you all riled up?
Taylor: Thomas didn't even know I was there. He had no idea that I had walked up on the conversation.
Stephanie: Well, when he told you this-- I mean, are you sure-- it just seems to me there's got to be something more. M-m-maybe it's something that he did.
Taylor: Well, it's always so easy to blame the man, isn't it? It's always their fault that they find Brooke just so beautifully seductive. But I'm gonna tell you something. It's something you told me-- that Brooke is the one in control here. She knows exactly what she's doing. And then she leaves these poor men feeling like they lost control a-and they just let it happen. I have no idea why Ridge even puts up with her. I-I have no idea why he even stayed with her after what she did with Oliver. Seriously, I don't know how she talked her way out of that, but somehow she did and Ridge forgave her. But I-I just don't see that happening this time, because this has to do with his son, and she has asked for forgiveness one too many times.
Ridge: I keep convincing myself that it'll be different, that you've learned from whatever the latest scandal is, that you understand you just can't keep secrets, yet you continue to do it. If you can't confide in your husband, even if you're an innocent participant, then something is seriously wrong here.
Brooke: I regret not telling you, Ridge. I just thought it would be better if I didn't make it such a big deal.
Ridge: You knew my concerns about Thomas, about the Taboo line. As my wife, my partner, his stepmother, how could you not have told me? Hiding these feelings that he's having, allowing me to think that he's actually interested in Dayzee...
Brooke: Well, he is. He is interested in her. He's not interested in me, definitely not that way. And I think that kiss made him realize that.
Ridge: Somehow I doubt that. Somehow I think Taylor may have been right.
Brooke: Taylor this is all because of her, you know. She kept saying over and over and over again that something was going to happen between me and Thomas. You put that out in the universe so many times, and it's going to happen. What did she expect? She painted me like I was some kind of forbidden fruit, and Thomas wanted to take a bite. Okay, look, I... (sighs) I don't think it was anything. I-I think it may have been a kiss of appreciation. It was a small, little kiss, and I-it was done and over within seconds. I didn't tell you, and that's where I went wrong. I should have come to you right away, but Thomas asked me not to say anything.
Ridge: Well, you shouldn't have listened to him, not when you know the importance I place on honesty. You promised me no more secrets. Brooke, I had a right to now.
Brooke: I know. I don't mean to blame Thomas. I'm older and wiser, and I take full responsibility for not coming to you and telling you about that.
Ridge: Why would you possibly think that it would be okay to keep something like that to yourself?
Brooke: Because I didn't want to hurt you, Ridge. I didn't want to upset you and I-I didn't want to jeopardize our relationship or--or the relationship that you have with your son. And I didn't want you to think that I had led him on somehow.
Ridge: I would never think that.
Brooke: Everybody else does.
Ridge: Who, you mean Taylor?
Brooke: Yes. (Sighs)
Ridge: Look, Logan, you have the warmest smile, the cutest personality of anybody. The way you giggle, the way you speak-- it has an effect on many men. All right? Taylor knows that. That's why she was concerned maybe her constant warnings did plant a seed in Thomasís head. I don't know. All I do know-- that he's--if he's kissing you, it means that he's been affected, too, by you. You know, he's a chemical, passionate young man working in an industry where we create electricity, where we thrive on sexual energy. That's exactly why I needed to be told what happened. When you withhold that kind of information from me, it causes me to make the wrong decisions, not just as a father, but also as the C.E.O. of this damn company. It's really frustrating that you feel loyalty to him to protect his little secret kiss when you should have felt a much bigger loyalty to me, your husband. Logan, I love you, but you know how I feel.
Brooke: I know. A-and I know I should have come to you right away about this. I just... I didn't want to make it a big deal.
Brooke: I-I just thought it was kind of innocent. And I was worried about how you would react, and, like I said I didn't want to hurt our relationship or the relationship that you have with your son. Not telling you was a mistake. I should have gone to you right away, Ridge. I do realize that. Can you forgive me? (Sighs) Ridge, don't look at me that way. I... really, it was not a big deal. Just tell me that you forgive me.
