Rick: Maya! Come back! Maya!
Taylor: It's a whole new day at Forrester. Around here, now you answer to me.
Brooke: Like hell I do.
Taylor: You can make this easy on yourself or not. It's your choice. But I'm here to stay, so you better find a way to deal with it.
Steffy: You're asking me to leave Forrester Creations?
Steffy: For good? Just pack up my things and quit my job?
Hope: For now, yeah.
Steffy: Hope, come on. You can't possibly be serious.
Hope: I am. I've given it a lot of thought.
Steffy: And why should I leave?
Hope: Because you owe it to me.
Steffy: Does this have to do with the meeting earlier on? You're upset Rick's being blamed for the low sales numbers?
Hope: Look, Rick has only had a couple months to prove himself as president, and now Thomas is already gunning for his job?
Steffy: Okay, what does that have to do with me?
Hope: Nothing. You and Liam are living together. You're having his child. Do you have any idea what it does to me to be reminded of that every day?
Jake: The presentation's for Eric?
Thomas: Yeah, to show him how I can turn this company around and get us back on track.
Jake: All right, well, I'll get this moving.
Thomas: Thank you.
Taylor: Hey, honey.
Taylor: How's the presentation coming along?
Thomas: It's fine. It's pretty straightforward, so no need for anything over the top.
Taylor: Oh, you have some amazing ideas.
Thomas: Well, I'm excited to finally get a real chance to take over the company and get it back from Brooke and her family.
Brooke: Oh, Bill, I was just trying to call you.
Bill: To tell me about the first-quarter profit loss? You should know by now I have ears everywhere. I've already heard.
Brooke: Yes, and Thomas and Taylor are blaming it all on Rick, of course. I'm afraid that my family and me are gonna be pushed out of here.
Bill: That ain't gonna happen because we're not gonna let it happen. We're going to stop talking about firing up Brooke's Bedroom Line, and we're going to do it. As of today, your son is still president, and... and where the hell is he? Rick should be here.
[Knock on door]
Rick: Maya. Maya, it's Rick. Please let me in. I can explain. Please let me explain. Thank you. Look, I'm sorry.
[Cell phone rings]
Maya: No, get that. You're Rick Forrester. It might be important.
Rick: Nothing is more important to me right now than you.
Maya: Why did you lie to me? Why didn't you tell me who you really are?
[Cell phone rings]
Maya: Why are you here?
[Cell phone beeps]
Rick: You should know the answer to that.
Maya: I'm not sure of anything right now. I thought you were someone else, homeless. I let you stay in my apartment. I-I trusted you. I tipped you more than I could afford.
Rick: I know, I know.
Maya: So, why were you working at Dayzee's? Why were you out in the alley in the cold? Why didn't you tell me you're a Forrester?
Rick: I should have. I-I liked the way that you treated me, like you had no idea who I was... like just one person reaching out to another, no names and no labels.
Maya: I let you in, Rick. I told you about my past, about my daughter, and not once did you say one word about who you are. Why? Was this all a joke to you? Were you playing me so you could take advantage of me?
Rick: No, no. It was nothing like that. I just -- I wanted you to like me for me. I wanted to be a regular guy for once. That's why I did what I did. I never had any intention of upsetting you. And I know that I shouldn't have pretended to be something I'm not, but you got to know -- you got to know that this -- that this friendship, this -- this connection, that whatever this is...is real.
Hope: You're a great businesswoman, Steffy, and you're about to be a Spencer, so go work with Bill and Liam.
Steffy: Forrester Creations is a part of me, and I'm a part of it for the rest of my life. So, don't get any crazy ideas that I'm going anywhere.
Hope: Steffy... do this for me.
Steffy: Fine. I will try to stay out of your way, but I am not leaving.
Hope: You know... I've tried to be understanding and dignified about this, and you have been nothing but cunning and manipulative.
Steffy: Oh, God, that's not true.
Hope: Look at you! You finally sealed the deal. You're pregnant.
Steffy: Yeah, I didn't mean to get pregnant.
Hope: Maybe -- maybe, subconsciously, it's what you wanted. Because we both know that's the only way that you could have taken Liam from me. He was ready to commit to you after finding out about you being pregnant, not before. So, go ahead and cling for dear life to this little fantasy that you didn't use this to trap him. Because way down deep, you know you did, and if Liam doesn't feel it today, he will.
Thomas: Hey, can you make sure the graphics are ready? Thank you.
Taylor: Slow down. You're doing an exceptional job.
Thomas: Well, I can do more if Eric will just give me the chance.
Taylor: Work hard, prove yourself, keep developing your ideas, and it will happen.
Thomas: I have a good feeling.
Taylor: I'm sensing big changes at Forrester Creations. Our family is finally being recognized.
Brooke: [Sighs] Rick's not picking up.
Bill: Maybe he heard about the numbers and doesn't want to face the music.
Brooke: It's not Rick's fault. I'm the only one who seems to believe that right now. Eric is giving Thomas another chance to make another presentation, and I'm afraid, now that Taylor is sharing his bed, that he's going to be swayed.
Bill: Well, you never can underestimate the power of... persuasion of that nature. But you're forgetting something.
Bill: I got my hands on the company's old financial records just to confirm what I already knew. Brooke's Bedroom was highly profitable back in the day. Anybody mention that in your meeting?
Brooke: [Chuckles] You're not still on that Brooke's Bedroom thing, are you? I'm not gonna be able to model lingerie on a stage, not at my age.
Bill: Listen to me. If I didn't believe you could do this, I wouldn't suggest it. We need to resurrect Brooke's Bedroom, and if we do, you will have the power of this company back in your hands. Well, come on. There have to be some samples from Brooke's Bedroom around here somewhere.
Brooke: Are you trying to get me out of my clothes?
Bill: You bet I am. Because you in a lace teddy's worth about 100 million bucks.
Brooke: That much, huh?
Bill: Maybe more.
Brooke: How could I say no to that?
Bill: You can't.
Eric: You should have called me right away. Yes, I know Mrs. Forrester was ill, but you should have called me as soon as you knew -- as soon as you knew that sales were dropping. No excuses. All right, I have to go. Was the Dallas boutique. They didn't think to warn me that sales were dropping, either.
Taylor: Oh, gosh, that has to be so frustrating.
Eric: Yeah. I knew business was slow. I just didn't realize it was this bad.
Taylor: Well, Thomas has some amazing ideas for cutting cost and increasing the profits, moving the company ahead. He's almost ready with his presentation.
Eric: Well, I look forward to seeing it. Rick's not gonna be thrilled.
Taylor: He'll have to accept it. In a family business, everybody has to try to get along. Although, judging from the meeting earlier, I-I picked up on a vibe. It's definitely going to be a challenge for Hope and Steffy.
Steffy: For the last time, I did not trap Liam. I didn't plan on getting pregnant. This baby was as much a surprise to me as anyone.
Hope: Right, right.
Steffy: Okay, you know what? I am not going to apologize for this child. I am excited. I am excited to be a mother. I am excited for this child, and I will not let you or anyone make me feel guilty about that. Things happen the way they're supposed to.
Hope: No. This isn't how things were supposed to happen. But I wish you luck, Steffy, because...a part of Liam will always be with me.
Rick: I don't work at Dayzee's. I was volunteering. I just happened to meet you on my first day. You got up there and sang, and you blew me away. It was like you leveled me. All that was real. And after that night, I just -- I couldn't get you out of my mind because I knew that this -- this beautiful young woman was something special, especially after everything that you've been through. It made me admire you that much more because you didn't let it define you. You rose above it. And even after everything you've endured, you are still kind and strong and compassionate... with this amazing voice.
Maya: You had so many opportunities to be honest.
Rick: I know. You see, all my life, people have liked me because I'm a Forrester. You were the first person to run away because of it.
Maya: I like the waiter.
Rick: Yeah. Me too.
Maya: It'd be hard to get past all this.
Rick: I really messed up, didn't I? I don't know. Maybe it's just me, but I really thought something was happening here. I'm sorry, Maya. And I really did enjoy spending time with you.
Maya: Me too.
Rick: Maya, wait, wait. Y-you got to know that I want nothing but good things for you, and I just know that I'm gonna see you on that big screen someday, and I'm gonna hear that magnificent voice, and I'm gonna see that gorgeous face. Take care of yourself.
Maya: You too.
Rick: Goodbye, Maya.
Maya: Goodbye, Rick.
Hope: You claim to have changed, but you haven't. Using this innocent baby to get what you want? Well, guess what, Steffy. You win. You win. You have it. You have Liam, the house, the baby, the life. You have everything.
Steffy: And I think you should know that Liam and I decided to get married, and we want to do it soon, before the baby is born.
Hope: I know. I'm the one who told him to set a date. You're gonna be Mrs. William Spencer III, the mother of his child. So, go ahead. Go plan your wedding, but have some decency. Go be a Spencer. I can't be around you. I can't -- I can't watch you plan this wedding or -- or see your baby grow. It's too hard.
Eric: No, it's wonderful. The news must be all over Genoa City. All right, I'll see you then. Nikki and Victor's wedding is on. I can't miss this. Although it's not a very good time to leave, is it? The way things are with the business and the way things are with Hope and Steffy.
Taylor: Hope is having a very difficult time accepting Steffy's pregnancy and the fact that Liam and Steffy are back together.
Eric: Hope is young. She'll get through this. I'll ask Brooke to speak to her.
Taylor: No, no. She'll just get defensive like she did earlier.
Eric: She's very protective of Rick, isn't she? Well, we both are. We both want our son to do well.
Taylor: Of course you do. I mean, I respect Rick. I don't blame the company's performance on him entirely. It's just that I was really shocked when I saw those numbers.
Eric: We were all distracted by Stephanie's illness and the rest of it. I have to admit, though, that Rick did drop the ball a bit.
Taylor: It was the presidency of the company. It was an opportunity of a lifetime. I just have to wonder if maybe he isn't taking it seriously.
Eric: Let's see what Thomas presents, and we'll go from there.
Taylor: Thank you for giving Thomas this opportunity to at least try to help. You know, he does deserve it. And I really think you're going to be pleasantly surprised. If anybody can pull this company out of this mess, it's him.
Bill: You look incredible. Your body is perfect.
Brooke: Yes, but wearing this for you and wearing this on a world stage is two very different things.
Bill: Well, share the love, Brooke. Why should I be the only one?
Brooke: Who said you're the only one? Hmm? Remember, you can look, but you can't touch.
Bill: So, are we gonna do this thing? Relaunch Brooke's Bedroom?
Brooke: Oh, I don't know. I just think --
Bill: No, no, no, no. Don't -- don't think. You think too much. Look at you. You are beautiful. What, a smile line, a wrinkle or two -- that just makes you who you are. People adore you, Brooke. It's the way you carry yourself -- your confidence, your -- your swagger. That's what's gonna make this line a huge hit once again. You can save this company and keep a place for you and your children.
Brooke: You really think we can do this?
Bill: I don't have a single doubt in my mind. You have what it takes. Just use your power, your body, your brain. You can do this.
Brooke: I-I-I didn't think I could, but being with you makes me feel like I can do anything.
Bill: You can do anything, Brooke, and you will, and you've got to. Ridge is gone. This company is slipping away. Taylor and her children are taking over. Do this for the company. Do it for your family. Do it for you.
Brooke: [Sighs] Okay. Yeah, what do I have to lose?
Bill: You're in?
Brooke: Yeah, I'm in. [Laughs]
Bill: You're not gonna regret it, Brooke.
Brooke: You better be right.
Bill: Are you kidding me? I'm always right. Come here.
Brooke: Thank you. Thank you for supporting me and believing in me.
Bill: A fool -- Ridge Forrester, letting you go. No bigger fool was born. I do believe in you, and I support you. I'd do anything for you, Brooke.
