[Bill remembering]

Bill: "Bill, I'm sorry, but I can't be Will's mommy. I want a divorce. Our son is yours now. Find him a good mother, something I can't be."

Katie: Bill? What are you thinking about? Yes, I'm talking to your daddy. Yes. Hi. (Whispering indistinctly)

Thomas: There's no way this loophole can be legit. My grandma promised me her 25% shares. She put it in her will.

Man: Yes, she did, in her original will, but this-- this is a later codicil. And in it, your grandmother leaves her share to her husband Eric and appoints him C.E.O. of Forrester Creations.

Thomas: No, that-- that can't be legal. We--we had a contract. Look, there's gotta be some way around this. I want what I'm owed, okay, what I was promised.

Caroline: (Giggles) No, I don't.

Rick: Yes, you do. You smile when you sleep. And to tell you the truth, I think it's pretty darn cute.

Caroline: (Chuckles)

Rick: Oh, there you are. I was wondering how long it was gonna take the former C.E.O. to pack up his things. Not sure if you got that memo. My old man wants his desk back. Let's see. A little overdressed to be a mover. I'm going with lawyer.

Thomas: He's going over my grandmother's trust.

Caroline: You're fighting Stephanie's wishes?

Thomas: I have a legal contract giving me her shares.

Rick: You saw the DVD. She had a change of heart.

Thomas: Okay, so what's the verdict? Is it legit or not?

Man: Your grandmother found something in the articles of incorporation of Forrester which enabled her to void her trust with you. Then she had every right to rewrite her will and reassign her shares to her husband. Given that she very clearly expresses her wishes on camera, I'm sorry, Thomas, we have no case.

Thomas: Okay, so there's nothing I can do?

Man: You could try to fight it, but, uh, I'd advise against it.

Rick: Well, there it is. Sorry to waste your time, Sir.

Caroline: Be nice.

Rick: Look, I'd be happy to pay his fee.

Thomas: I doubt what you have in your wallet will fit the bill.

Rick: Well, then, by all means, send the bill to Thomas. Maybe, uh, cut him a break, give him a little discount. After all, the guy just got demoted. You know, it's gotta be rough.

Katie: Look. It's your Aunt Brooke.

Brooke: Hi, Will.

Katie: (Chuckles)

Brooke: How are you doing?

Katie: (Sighs) So much better. I haven't left the house since I got back. I just want to spend every moment with Will.

Bill: He likes having his mom home.

Katie: Yes.

Brooke: Oh, I bet he does. (Laughs)

Katie: (Laughs) And he's such a good boy. Yes, he is.

Brooke: Any chance Auntie Brooke can hold him?

Katie: Oh, I think there's a chance. I'm sure he misses his Aunt Brooke. Oh, there you go.

Brooke: Oh, I got him.

Katie: Aw. That's okay.

Brooke: Hello.

Taylor: Hey. Hi.

Katie: Oh, hey. Is it time for my session already?

Taylor: Yeah. Brooke, I didn't know you were going to be here. I thought you'd be at the office.

Brooke: Oh, Eric is handling everything.

Taylor: Oh, yes, yes. Stephanie surprised us all and left Eric her shares, appointing him C.E.O.

Bill: Yeah, Caroline filled me in.

Taylor: How are you feeling, Katie?

Katie: I feel great. (Chuckles)

Brooke: You know, I'll leave the two of you to your session.

Taylor: Actually, I-I think it would be great if you could stay. A family session would be very beneficial if--if Katie doesn't mind.

Katie: Yeah, I-I think that would be good.

Brooke: Oh, okay.

Bill: I'm assuming I'm not off the hook.

Katie: No. You're very much on the hook, my friend. (Chuckles)

Taylor: You should be here, too, Bill. I think it would be good for Katie if she could get it out in the open, all the things that she went through while she was gone.

Rick: You're taking this way too personally.

Thomas: Please tell me what is not personal about it.

Rick: Oh, come on, look at the bright side, "Tommy boy." You still got 5% of the shares that Ridge gave you. Hell, that's 5% more than I have.

Thomas: And 5% is nothing, Rick, and you know it. All the work that I've done for the future of this company-- it's gone. Okay, I'd still have controlling interest and still be C.E.O. of the company if my grandmother hadn't reneged on her deal.

Rick: Promises get broken all the time. Deal with it.

Thomas: Yeah, that's easy for you to say.

Caroline: Guys, Stephanie would not want you guys fighting about this.

Thomas: You're thrilled this is happening.

Rick: Am I glad that Stephanie put a stop to your dictatorship? You bet I am.

Thomas: Except she can't make that call from the grave.

Rick: Well, apparently she has. Even your lawyer said you'd be a fool to challenge it.

Thomas: You know, I have a hard time accepting that my grandmother actually meant to do this. She was on a whole lot of medication before she died.

Rick: Oh, God.

Caroline: Oh, Thomas, you don't really believe that, do you?

Thomas: I hate feeling that she lied to me.

Rick: She didn't lie. She simply changed her mind.

Caroline: Think of it as her leveling the playing field. Now you two can duke it out on the catwalk, like real men.

Brooke: Will went right to sleep. (Sighs)

Katie: Uh, did you, uh, turn on his monkey mobile? He loves that thing.

Brooke: Yeah. (Chuckles)

Katie: (Chuckles)

Taylor: So where were we?

Katie: Um... I just, I-I-I just want to thank you. I-I can't tell you how grateful I am. I mean, you knew from the beginning that this was postpartum depression, and I didn't want to believe you. And it took a lot of time and a lot of mistakes for me to come around, but you are relentless... (Laughs) Thank God. And you, I... (Sniffles) I'm just so grateful to have you. (Sighs) I-I know that most men would have given up, but you never gave up on me. You never gave up on our family. I love you so much for that. (Sighs) And you... (Sighs) Brooke, thank you for stepping in for me. I... I know you're not Bill's biggest fan. (Chuckles)

Brooke: (Sighs) No, I-I have a new understanding and respect for Bill. He's a wonderful father, and he's very concerned about you and Will. His strength is inspiring.

Taylor: You mentioned, uh, some mistakes you made-- you know, some of the things that happened as a result of the depression.

Katie: (Sighs) Uh, well, I wasn't myself... (Sighs) Obviously. I-I was really messed up by my heart attack, and I was convinced that I was gonna die. And that's why I wouldn't let myself bond with will, because I felt like the best thing would be for me to just remove myself from the family... (Sniffles) And put you in my place, I-I wanted you to be a mother to my son, because I didn't think that I was going to be able to. I mean, that's how distorted my thinking was. I-I thought that I could push the two of you together, and--and I-I know that it sounds ridiculous. But... Ridge was gone, and I knew that he hadn't come to Stephanie's party. And I was in such a-a dark place. I planned this-- this whole future for you and for Bill and Will. (Sniffles)

Bill: Katie, what are you talking about?

Katie: (Sighs) That hot air balloon ride in Aspen, I set that up.

Bill: Why, Katie? W-why would you do that?

Katie: Because I know you, Bill. And I knew that if Brooke was gonna be a mother to your son that you would have to--

Bill: What? Fall in love with her?

Katie: (Sighs) I-I-I know. It's--it's--it's ridiculous. It sounds insane, and... (Chuckles) And it is. And I--and I am so-- I am so ashamed. I am so-- I am so sorry for even entertaining the idea.

Taylor: You weren't being yourself, okay? That was the depression. (Sighs) Bill and--and Brooke together as a couple-- of course you truly wouldn't want that.

Katie: No, of course not. I mean, my God... (sighs) I-I-I cherish you, and I-I-I cherish our family. And the--the thought of you with--with anyone else, let alone my own sister is--is horrifying. And--and I'm--I'm so sorry. It was the only thing that I could think of to do. I-I-I'm so sorry that I-- that I even entertained the idea of--of--of pushing the two of you together.

Brooke: You don't have to apologize.

Katie: I just--I put you in a terrible position.

Bill: It was the depression, Katie.

Katie: (Sighs) I'm just so glad that I realized how crazy I was before I...

Brooke: You weren't.

Katie: The idea was crazy.

Brooke: What you said about Bill and me... I-I think there's something--

Bill: Brooke's upset, because... (Sighs) She cares so much for you. We both do.

Bill: Look, uh, we have all been through a hell of a lot.

Katie: (Sighs)

Bill: And we've made mistakes. But there is no point in dwelling in the past. You're home now with me and Will. And that's really all that matters.

Katie: (Sniffles) (Sighs) (Sniffles) I had enough of feeling embarrassed about my skin. (Sighs) (Sighs) Are you okay?

Bill: You know, I think we're all just a little bit emotional right now. It's a lot to process. Brooke, why don't you go get some fresh air, maybe check on Will?

Brooke: Sure.

Katie: If that little guy can't make you feel better, than nothing can.

Brooke: (Sighs)

Katie: (Sighs) I feel bad.

Taylor: Why?

Katie: I-I never should have mentioned Ridge. I mean, that's why she's so upset. Uh, he's gone, and she has no idea if he's ever coming back. And with Stephanie's death, there's just been so much pain and loss, and I should have been there for my sister.

Bill: I don't want you to feel guilty, Katie, and neither would Brooke. I meant what I said before. We're just glad to have you back. Focus on yourself, spend time with Will, find yourself. That's all I really care about.

Katie: I love you so much.

Bill: I love you, too. (Sighs) I'll go check on Brooke.

Katie: I shouldn't have said anything. Just hearing the words come out of my mouth... (Sighs)

Taylor: No, you needed to express those things.

Katie: I think it made Brooke realize just how bad off I really was. I mean, for me to try to set her up with my husband, it's--it's inconceivable, especially to my sister.

Caroline: I hope that there's no hard feelings.

Thomas: I'm not mad at you, Caroline. My grandfather put you on Rick's team probably because he knows how badly Rick's gonna need the help.

Rick: Hey, I'm no dummy. I know the only way I'm beating you is with Caroline.

Thomas: Sorry, there's no way you're beating me.

Rick: Oh, come on, Thomas, you think I'm gonna let you win? You should pull out that little white flag right now, start waving it around. Save you loads of humiliation.

Thomas: You're too cocky, Rick Forrester-- International party boy, always getting what you want.

Rick: Yeah, pretty much.

Thomas: Well, you're not gonna get what you want this time. Yes, Caroline is a great designer, but I'm better. I have a track record. With my designs and my sister's ski line and lingerie line, you Logans don't stand a chance.

Brooke: It's okay. He--he woke up, but he went right back to sleep.

Bill: What are you doing?

Brooke: I heard Katie saying all of those things, and I got a little bit emotional.

Bill: You were going to tell her about our kiss, weren't you?

Brooke: (Sighs) Yes. Yes, I can't stop thinking about that kiss.

Bill: (Sighs)

Brooke: Do you think about it?

Bill: Yeah. I do.

Bill: I don't know that I can ever forget it.

Katie: I hope Brooke's okay. I really can't thank her enough for stepping in for me. I mean, it's-- it's above and beyond. It's just nice to know that she--she'll always be there for me and for my family.

Taylor: Yes. Yes, it is.

Katie: I should go check on her.

Taylor: No, you, uh, you stay here. I'll just go check on her for you.

Katie: Okay.

Caroline: I came up with some ideas for the competition last night.

Rick: Yeah? Hit me with them.

Caroline: Well, there has to be a theme, so whether it's the colors we choose or the fabrics that we choose, there has to be a cohesiveness to it, all parts of it-- you know, the--the couture line, Hope's line, my young urban style.

Rick: I'm with you, but we have to emphasize the traditional elegance along with the, um, you know, dynamic Caroline Spencer twist.

Caroline: (Chuckles)

Rick: Classic Forrester's gonna win this. It's what my dad wants. It's what all our major clientele expects. It's what I've been talking about all along.

Caroline: Your confidence is so sexy.

Rick: Yeah?

Caroline: Mm-hmm.

Rick: Mm. Did I mention how big we're gonna win this thing?

Caroline: Mm. (Giggles)

Rick: The first stop-- Forrester. The next is the world. (Chuckles)

Caroline: (Chuckles)

Thomas: (Scoffs)

Bill: I can't forget that kiss or anything that we've been through together. But Katie can never know.

Brooke: No. No, she can't.

Bill: What was she thinking, trying to hook us up?

Brooke: (Sighs)

Bill: I mean, the hot air balloon ride-- Katie had her hands in everything.

Brooke: She was in crisis. She wasn't in her right mind. We really had no idea what she was going through.

Bill: (Sighs)

Brooke: But that's no excuse for what we did.

Bill: No. No, it isn't.

Brooke: I really needed you when Stephanie died. It felt good to have a man's arms around me again. But not you, Bill, not my sister's husband-- it's just wrong.

Bill: All right, look, I don't want you feeling guilty. Katie was setting us up. She was manipulating the whole thing. We were both going through a very rough time.

Brooke: I don't know what I would have done without your support.

Bill: I'll always be there for you. After what we've been through, we can handle a friendship. And that's what we are, friends.

Brooke: I'm glad I could be there for you, too. And you and Will-- you were there for me. You helped me through that difficult time when Ridge left and Stephanie left us... (Sighs) Forever. But I'll never forget when you put that ring on my finger and we went into each other's arms and we shared that kiss. But Katie can never know about that kiss. We can make sure she--she--she can never find out about that.
