Brooke: I'm glad to hear from you. I was worried after our talk last night.
Bill: Well, even I have the occasional bad moment. Thanks for listening.
Brooke: Feeling better, then?
Bill: Well, Katie's and my issues haven't magically disappeared, but we're gonna work it out. How about you? Ready for the big day?
Brooke: Oh, gosh. I feel like I fell down a rabbit hole. It's been a while since a press conference has been about me. But you'll be there, right?
Bill: Oh, yeah. Leaving in a few.
Brooke: Why don't you bring Katie? Might be a good distraction for her.
Bill: I'll mention it to her.
Katie: Hard at work?
Bill: Press conference for Brooke's Bedroom is today.
Bill: I'd like it if you joined me, Katie.
Katie: Oh, no. No, I'm not going to any press conference, and neither are you.
Caroline: You still think I'm sexy?
Rick: You have to ask?
Caroline: I don't know. You didn't seem exactly enthusiastic last night. I mean, there I was, standing in awesome, expensive lingerie, and you kicked me out of your house. That's not how it's supposed to be, Rick.
Rick: I'm sorry. I've been preoccupied. I've got a lot riding on this relaunch.
Caroline: Is that all?
Rick: Well, what else?
Caroline: That girl -- Mariah?
Rick: Maya, and can we not get into that again? Brooke's Bedroom's about to slam into production. I've got to stay focused.
[Door opens, closes]
Donna: This is so exciting!
Pam: It's a press conference. You've seen one, you've seen them all.
Donna: For my sister. I mean, it's been a long time since the buzz has been about her.
Pam: Exactly. It's been a long time.
Donna: What does that mean?
Pam: Brooke is a little long in the tooth to be parading around in her underwear.
Donna: What in the world do Brooke's teeth have to do with anything? And besides, have you seen them? They're gorgeous.
Eric: Thanks for being here. I know you're not particularly happy with the relaunch of this line.
Taylor: I think it's a colossal waste of time, money, and resources. I also think you'll regret that you gave it the go-ahead, but you did, we're doing it, and I'm here to support you.
Eric: Well, I appreciate that. There's another reason I'm glad you're here.
Taylor: And why is that?
Eric: I'm gonna make an announcement of my own about us.
Maya: It's Maya.
Caroline: Whatever. I don't care. You need to stay away from my man.
Brooke: You'll work exclusively for Brooke's bedroom and report directly to me. It's gonna be long hours and hard work. Is that a problem?
Woman: Not at all. I'd be thrilled to work for you.
Brooke: It was very nice to meet you.
Woman: Honor to meet you.
Brooke: You'll hear from me either way.
Taylor: Expecting someone else?
Brooke: You've come to wish me well?
Taylor: Just checking in.
Brooke: I'm not hiding Bill behind the desk, if that's what you're wondering.
Taylor: Well, maybe he won't come. Maybe Katie was able to make him realize his presence here would be completely inappropriate.
Brooke: Bill has a stake in the success of this company.
Taylor: Bill has a stake in you, Brooke. If Katie's smart, she'll keep him away.
Bill: I'm a minority shareholder in Forrester. The relaunch of Brooke's Bedroom was my idea. I'm happy for your sister, and I'm going to be there to support her.
Katie: Bill, you run a multibillion-dollar conglomerate. Your 12% of Forrester means nothing. You don't need to be there to see Brooke parading around in her underwear.
Bill: Alison, you shouldn't have.
Alison: I didn't. I know there's a ban on spirits. It's from Mr. Henderson. He wants the Atlanta station to do a feature on his falling star.
Bill: Let me take a peek at that label.
Alison: Shall I send it back?
Bill: Only if you want to be out on the job market.
Alison: Then I shall leave you two to sort it out.
Bill: So...where were we?
Maya: When I first met Rick, I didn't know he was in a relationship.
Caroline: But it did become clear at some point, didn't it? What kind of a woman continues to pursue a man after she finds out that he's involved with someone else? I'll say it. A loser ex-con who's just trying to get as much as she can while she can.
Maya: That's not true.
Caroline: Which part?
Maya: I went to prison for a crime I didn't commit.
Caroline: Isn't that what they all say? "I'm innocent. I was framed." Whatever. The point is, you don't have a place in Rick's life.
Maya: And you get to decide that?
Caroline: I really don't want to hurt your feelings, but sometimes the truth has to be said, even when it's harsh. I move easily in Rick's world because it's my world, too. You, however, make stupid decisions that land you in prison. I have founded a charity that has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help fight cancer. I have traveled the world. I speak three languages. Rick can take me anywhere. You he hides in this dumpy little diner. Doesn't that tell you all you need to know?
Rick: Hey. Where's my mom? What's that look for?
Pam: Brooke's in, um... Eric's office.
Donna: And they've been in there for a while.
Pam: She's with Taylor.
Brooke: I know you ran straight to Katie when you saw Bill and me together. You couldn't wait to make her angry with me.
Taylor: Well, she should be -- finding you rolling around, giggling on the bed with her husband, half-naked, swilling champagne.
Brooke: We were toasting.
Taylor: To the provocative underwear line that you're working on together. Why can't you see how inappropriate this is?
Brooke: Oh, my God. Who are you to talk? Five minutes after Stephanie died, there you are, making a pass at Eric, moving into her house, into her bed.
Taylor: Why is it wrong for us to be together? We're not hurting anyone. You can't say that.
Brooke: Bill and I are not having an affair.
Taylor: Well, you're not now, but you're getting close.
Brooke: Go get a life.
Taylor: I have one, thank you, and I'm reveling in it.
Eric: Everything okay in here?
Taylor: Never better.
Rick: Uh, whenever you're ready.
Brooke: I'm gonna go get changed.
[Door opens, closes]
Bill: You know, I would think you'd be happy to attend the press conference.
Katie: I don't need to see Brooke in her underwear. I've seen it. And neither do you. Listen, you did a good thing. You encouraged her. You convinced her that what she has to offer Forrester is important. And now your job is done. I don't want you at that press conference.
Bill: And I don't want you dictating where I can go, what I can do, and who I can see.
Katie: I am trying to avert a disaster for our family. I love my sister, but I know her very well. I don't like what's going on here. Can you understand that?
Bill: No. Because what you're really saying is...you don't trust me.
Katie: You act like my concerns aren't valid.
Bill: I'm tired, Katie. I am tired of hearing no. You know what? I have an idea. We're gonna do a controlled study. Every time you say "no," I'm gonna take a hit from this bottle.
Katie: Are you kidding? No way. I'm not playing drinking games with you.
Bill: And we're off.
Katie: You cannot be serious.
Bill: I don't think you realize how often that word comes out of your mouth.
Katie: We agreed no more drinking.
Katie: This is ridiculous. You're knocking back shots in the middle of the afternoon. I mean, what exactly are you trying to prove?
Bill: I'm a husband. I'm a father. First and foremost, I am a man. I make my own choices, live on my terms. I answer to me.
Katie: No, not anymore.
Bill: Bottoms up.
Katie: You answer to Will. Our child comes first.
Bill: And I will teach our son to live life to its fullest, to grab it by the throat and never let go. And I won't let go. I won't let go of all the things that make me feel like I'm alive. I knew it was coming. You demanded I give up the drinking. Then you demanded I give up motorcycle racing. You demanded I stopped heli-skiing. Well, I will not give those things up, Katie. They are my passions. And when he's old enough, I will introduce my son to my passions. I will share those experiences with him, and my passions will become his passions.
Katie: No way. No way. You are out of your mind if you think that I am going to let you turn my son into some kind of adrenaline junkie. Bill, I am a heart-transplant patient. I don't know how much longer I'm going to be here. If something happens to you, then our son will be without both of his parents.
Bill: You can't live in fear of your mortality, Katie, and you can't predict it. You said as much to me when you told me that you were pregnant and I was concerned for your well-being. Well, maybe I can't stop you, but I will be damned if you're going to turn our son into a person who lives in fear, who is afraid to get out from under his sheets every morning.
Katie: I've hardly become a shut-in. I've been busy being a parent, taking care of our child. And I would like our child to learn good judgment, and I'm beginning to think that he's never gonna learn it from you.
Bill: Don't mistake my passion for life for poor judgment. What -- what happened to the woman that used to share my adrenaline rush when I would do the things that exhilarated me? What happened to that incredible woman that I married? I miss my wife. I miss you. Having a baby doesn't turn you into an entirely different person.
Katie: You're wrong. It --
[Cell phone beeps]
Katie: Son of a...
[Camera shutter clicks]
Eric: Thank you all for coming on such short notice.
Jarrett: Well, spontaneous Forrester press conferences usually mean something exciting.
Eric: Well, I hope you won't be disappointed today. It is with pride and pleasure that I announce the relaunch of the most successful line in Forrester history, Brooke's Bedroom. And here today to show you is the lady herself, Brooke Logan. Brooke?
[Camera shutters clicking]
Brooke: [Chuckles] I just want to tell you all I'm very thankful that you're here, and I'm not gonna take up too much of your time. I'm very grateful to Eric, the C.E.O. of this company, for giving us the green light. And, of course, Rick -- you all know him as my son -- for being the president of Forrester Creations and putting all of his expertise and his talent in the relaunch of Brooke's Bedroom.
Danica: Well, if the piece that you are wearing is any indication of what's to come, I think that Forrester has got a sure winner.
Brooke: That is the plan. All right, no questions.
Jarrett: Oh, just one, please. Don't you feel self-conscious and exposed? I mean, a woman of your age dressing publicly in lingerie.
Brooke: No, I don't really feel self-conscious. And my motto is "the more exposed, the better."
Brooke: No, really, I think you guys are gonna enjoy the preview, and it's gonna be ready very soon, so thanks for being here once again.
Eric: Thank you all very much for coming. Good job. Oh, and while you're here, I just want to take advantage of the moment. I have an announcement of my own to make.
Maya: Caroline, you don't know me. You walk in here, you basically call me a worthless lowlife. That's not who I am. I'm a woman on her own doing the best that she can. Have I made mistakes? Yes. I've hooked up with the wrong people, but I'm doing better now. I have dreams and aspirations just like anyone else.
Caroline: Oh, you mean the actress/singer/model type? You and about a million other girls that come to L.A. and realize that their talents aren't that great, so they latch on to some rich guy. Just know that the rich guy that you want to latch on to isn't gonna be mine. You have a nice day now.
Eric: Rumors are the lifeblood of your business, and so -- well, I'd like to take this opportunity to go on record and say that Dr. Taylor Hayes and I are living together, and I couldn't be happier.
Eric: Come on.
[Camera shutters clicking]
Danica: I assume this is a new relationship?
Eric: I've known Taylor Hayes for a very long time, and since my wife passed away, she and I have become very, very close, and I'm very grateful for that.
Danica: Any plans to be the new Mrs. Forrester?
Jarrett: When did Miss Hayes move in?
Dayzee: She's right, you know? Caroline and Rick are in a committed, exclusive relationship since long before you got here. She's Rick's girlfriend, Maya. You need to accept it, and you need to leave Rick alone.
Donna: Hi. Just wanted to give you the all clear. The press is gone.
Rick: Thank you, Donna.
Donna: You're welcome.
Katie: Where's your phone?
Katie: Your phone -- where is it?
Brooke: Uh...it's right here.
Katie: Isn't this what got you in trouble with Ridge? Because I got to tell you, I'm not too keen on it, either.
Brooke: I don't know what you're talking about.
Katie: Inappropriate texts. Listen -- my husband runs Spencer Publications. He's not involved in your little lingerie line. I'm sorry that it's come to this, but I don't like what's happening. So I want you to stay away from Bill -- no texting, no talking to him, no communicating with him whatsoever. Do I make myself clear?
