Katie: He's all yours. You can make him happier than I ever could. You win. Congratulations.
Bill: I love you.
Katie: You did this to me. You stole my husband.
Rick: "Hope for the Future" is, uh -- it's a mouthful.
Thorne: It's been the name of the line from day one, Rick.
Rick: Not anymore, Thorne. From now on, it'll be known as "HFTF."
Thomas: Really? A bunch of letters?
Rick: No, no, not just a bunch of letters. It's smart. It rolls off the tongue. It's -- it's fresh and hip. Plus, it's part of the new rebranding.
Thomas: So, Hope's cool with this?
Rick: She's not only cool with it, Thomas. She's on board with everything that Caroline and I are doing.
Thorne: Which is what, exactly?
Rick: Oh, Thorne. Thorne, you'll see soon enough.
Eric: Rick, the relaunch is today. We have buyers and press -- they're on their way now. Are you ready?
Rick: Born ready, Dad.
Thomas: Well, the deal is $100 million in gross sales or you're out as president and Thorne is in.
Rick: I'm aware of the stakes, Thomas.
Thorne: Well, then, I guess we'll just have to wait and see if you and Caroline can pull this off.
Caroline: The pressure is on, everybody! I need everyone on point! Fluff those a little bit more. Can I get some more coffee? Thank you. I've only slept for 45 minutes, and this is what I look like. [Inhales deeply] [Exhales deeply]
Carter: You've been at this all night.
Caroline: This show has to run perfectly. I owe it to the company, and I especially owe it to Rick. I have done a lot of things that I am not proud of, but I'm trying to make it up to him... if it's not too late.
Carter: It's never too late.
Caroline: Yeah, well, that's what they say.
Carter: You're a little out there, and I'm not exactly down with your methods, but I don't think you should give up on Rick.
Caroline: I-I wasn't going to.
Carter: Well, I'm not giving up on Maya, either.
Caroline: Well, good. I'm glad for you. Okay.
Thomas: It's not looking good, Rick. Look, I've contacted our usual buyers and reporters, and hardly anyone's coming.
Thorne: Do we even want to go through with this? This could be a huge embarrassment for this entire company.
Rick: What, no faith, Thorne? Wow. There was a time that, uh, you used to have my back. I think that was the same time when we used to call each other "Brother." It seems like you're over at, uh, "Team Thomas," all the way to the dark side.
Thorne: Well, Little Brother, lost revenue can do that to a guy.
Eric: All right, all right. That's enough, Boys. The audience will decide if this relaunch is a success or a failure. Their reaction is gonna tell me everything I need to know.
Caroline: Well, it's like you said -- it's never too late to turn things around.
Maya: Hey, you two.
Maya: Everything cool?
Carter: Yeah. All's good.
[Cell phone rings]
Caroline: Ugh. Will you hold on a sec?
[Cell phone beeps]
Caroline: What is it, Rafael?
Rafael: Where have you been? Been calling you, texting you.
Caroline: Well, I'm sorry, but it's been a little bit crazy here.
Rafael: Okay. I need to talk to you. It's important.
Caroline: No, I can't. Today is my big show, okay? But I promise I will call you later.
[Cell phone beeps]
[Cell phone beeps]
Bill: [Inhales deeply] [Groans] [Sighs] Come back to bed.
Brooke: Did I wake you?
Bill: No. I haven't slept that well in years. How long you been up?
Brooke: Oh, I-I never really went to sleep.
Bill: Come here. Good morning.
Brooke: Good morning.
Bill: You look beautiful.
Brooke: Thank you.
Bill: What's going on in there?
Brooke: [Sighs] I just... I just can't seem to get over how much I've hurt Katie.
Thorne: This rebranding concept will never succeed. I predict by the end of the day, you and I -- we're going to be running Forrester Creations.
Eric: Thomas, Thorne. Look, Rick agrees that there needs to be some overall changes in how we run the company.
Rick: But I will not compromise the integrity of Forrester Creations in the process. I stand behind our classic business models. I respect the traditions and the elegance that defines Forrester Creations. If we don't have that, Gentlemen, we don't have anything, and I think Dad will agree with that statement.
Eric: Actually, I do, but these two want to be more aggressive. They think we should take the company in a completely new direction.
Thorne: We need a strong online presence and centralized warehousing.
Rick: I'm all for making our product more accessible, expanding and increasing sales, but we can do that and still maintain who we are. Caroline and I will prove that with HFTF.
Eric: Well, I hope it works. Forrester needs this to be a success.
Thorne: And so do you, because if those buyers are not jumping with excitement, I'm telling you, Little Brother, you're looking at the new president and vice president of Forrester Creations.
Bill: You've got to let it go.
Brooke: [Sighs] I can't. Katie's my sister. You didn't hear all the awful things that she said to me.
Bill: Oh, I heard enough.
Brooke: She's right, you know. I am stealing her husband.
Bill: [Scoffs] You can't steal something that's been thrown away. Katie lost faith in the marriage. Now she wants it back. It's too late. My heart's with you.
Brooke: I still think that you could work things out with Katie.
Bill: You don't really want that.
Brooke: I want what's best for her and what's best for Will.
Bill: Well, so do I, and I'm not what's best for Katie. I can't make her happy. Divorce is unfortunate, but it happens. As far as Will is concerned -- I will love my son, and I'll take care of my son, and he's gonna be fine, and so will Katie, if she chooses to be. She made choices that brought us to this point. She pushed us here. And now we're moving on. It's happening. I'm done feeling guilty. I'm done with apologies... and so are you.
Caroline: Oh, coffee! Oh, my gosh! Thank you so much! I was about to die.
Maya: You have put in a lot of hours.
Caroline: Mm. Yeah. I have to. I mean, I want to. The company has just been so good to me, and Rick -- well, let's just say I owe him.
Maya: I know he appreciates it. He's under such enormous pressure to turn the company around.
Caroline: Yeah, well, I feel partially responsible. I mean, I've been such a distraction lately, and I've made some pretty bad choices, as you well know. But I think the worst of it was that I lied to Rick. Keeping things from him -- there's just nothing that he hates more than. I mean, Rick just hates secrets. I mean, we all do, right, you know? But I think he's a little bit more sensitive because of, like, everything that Amber put him through. You know, it was just, like, one trashy lie after another.
Maya: Yeah, I heard she's done some terrible things. Will you excuse me? I need to see if Hope's ready for my fitting.
Caroline: Yeah, sure, go on. That's okay. Okay, let's see. I've got flowers, gift bags, Othello's playlist, lighting, and -- oh, can I get some more coffee? I need more coffee! It's, like, almost gone.
Rick: Hey, Caroline?
Rick: How's it going?
Caroline: Oh, everything is moving along.
Rick: Yeah? Is there anything that I can do?
Caroline: Uh, try not worry.
Rick: [Chuckles] That's a little -- little hard with my job on the line.
Caroline: Look, we are not gonna fail, okay? We make a great team. I believe in us. We've always made a great team, since the day I arrived here from New York... you know, before...I ruined everything.
Caroline: Look, it's true, okay? You lost faith in me.
Rick: I fell in love with someone else.
Caroline: I know, all right? But I let it happen. I was bratty and pushy and unpleasant about Maya, and she was straightforward, and I wasn't, you know? And I know how much you don't like things happening behind your back and people keeping secrets. It's, like, the one thing that you cannot tolerate in a relationship.
Rick: That's kind of a problem for me -- trusting people.
Caroline: Well, I didn't exactly make it easy.
Rick: Caroline, I've been -- I've been lied to so many times in the past, taken advantage of, by women that I've really cared about. But Maya -- I don't have to worry about that. She's never kept anything from me. That's one thing I admire about her is her -- is her honesty and her loyalty and her integrity. I never have to worry about her cheating on me.
Maya: He can't know you stayed here last night, Carter. Our secret, okay?
Carter: What was so urgent?
Maya: You weren't about to tell Caroline about us making out and you staying at my place overnight, were you?
Carter: You wanted it to be our secret. I would never betray you like that.
Maya: Thank you.
Carter: Are you all right?
Maya: I don't know. I'm just not sure.
Maya: Rick. I think I have to tell him.
Brooke: You are such a unique, remarkable man. I want to be with you so much.
Bill: Then let yourself be happy. You know how hard I tried to make it work with Katie. You tried, too, but the damage goes too deep. I made a choice to be with you, and we deserve to be happy.
Bill: Brooke, stop blaming yourself.
Brooke: No, I-I just -- I have these waves of guilt, and I-I can't stop it. I can't seem to get her out of my mind, and I...
Caroline: Thank you. Yeah. So, you never told me how your meeting went.
Rick: Ugh, well, Thorne and Thomas think that this, uh, entire show is gonna be a disaster. They're probably moving my desk down to shipping as we speak.
Caroline: Those jerks.
Caroline: Although I can't say that I am surprised. I mean, Thorne has been vying for your position for a very long time, and so has Thomas, and now that they're working together...
Rick: They've been getting in my dad's head a little, and I think he might think that this is gonna tank.
Caroline: Well, then, we just have to prove them wrong.
Rick: Do you really think that we can pull this off?
Caroline: When we put our minds to something...
Rick: Well, like I said, you know, thank you. Without you, I wouldn't even have a chance, and neither would Hope's line. You came up with all of this and the new logo and the new name.
Caroline: HFTF, Baby.
Rick: Thank you, Caroline. Thank you for all you've done. Without you, I'd be screwed.
Caroline: Well, if we're gonna go down, we're gonna go down fighting and with our heads held high.
Rick: Well, let's hope it doesn't come down to that.
Caroline: It won't. In a couple hours, we're gonna be celebrating together.
Rick: We'll see.
Caroline: Look, I can't go back, but if I could, I...would have done things completely different. I-I would have been the woman that you could trust, like I am now, and if I just would have been honest with you, I mean, things would have been so different with us.
Carter: You begged me to keep it quiet. What changed?
Maya: I've just been feeling guilty that I have to be truthful and tell Rick. And then just now in the showroom, I hear him talking to Caroline about honesty and loyalty, and he said that those are the qualities that he most admires in me, Carter. I feel like a hypocrite.
Carter: Maya, you are honest and loyal.
Maya: Not if I'm keeping a big, huge secret from Rick. It's not fair. I-I have to tell him tonight after the show.
Carter: Maya, are you sure?
Maya: Yes. I have to. Rick hates secrets. I hope he understands, but... I don't know if he will.
Bill: You did everything you could to salvage my marriage. And so did I. If I weren't here with you, I wouldn't be with Katie. You need to know that, Brooke, and you need to stop looking back and start looking forward.
Brooke: Mm. I'm trying.
Bill: I know you are. It's been tough, but we found each other as a result of it. That's been our reward at the end of this very bumpy road. I refuse to look at it any other way. I finally found a woman who understands me, who appreciates me for who I am. Katie became a person who wanted to control me, who wanted to change me. She became vengeful and spiteful and angry, and she wanted to lash out and hurt me. That's okay. People have been trying to hurt me my whole life. It's all right. But if she tries to keep me from my son, she's gonna be reminded about who she's dealing with.
Brooke: I-I don't think she would do that.
Bill: Yeah, well, I don't know about that. She's completely controlled by her insecurities at this point. I still want to help her, and I will try to... but not as her husband. I'm with you now. I finally met my match... and you met yours.
Brooke: You think you can handle me?
Bill: I'm pretty confident. I just want to look into those beautiful eyes every day, see that smile... [Chuckles] Hear that giggle.
Brooke: [Giggles] So, did I tame the stallion?
Bill: Not an easy feat, you know.
Bill: My beautiful Brooke.
