Episode # 7237 ~ Brooke sets boundaries for herself while working with Bill at Spencer Publications; a jealous Nicole confronts Rick about his recent employment decisions at Forrester Creations.
Proofread By Nikky
Brooke: [Breathing heavily] Oh, what are we doing?
Bill: Following our instincts.
Brooke: We can't.
Bill: It's too late.
Rick: Bringing Mom over to Spencer will definitely shake things up.
Katie: Yeah, well, it's the media business. That's a good thing.
Rick: I'm all for it.
Katie: You're not a little upset that we lured her away from Forrester?
Rick: Mom's expertise hasn't been properly utilized over here. It's a great opportunity for her.
Katie: I hope she's excited about it.
Rick: Knowing Mom, she'll make the most out of it.
Katie: I'm happy she accepted our offer. I'm happy for myself, happy for my family. It's a good thing for all of us.
Sasha: I mean, this is crazy, right?
Nicole: [Chuckles] You're a print model.
Sasha: [Chuckles] Well, I mean, Rick basically promised me the job, so...
Nicole: Can he do that? I mean, he must have been really impressed. He didn't have you audition for Steffy or Ridge?
Zende: No. He just told us to shoot and see how it goes.
Nicole: So, this is like a trial period?
Sasha: Oh, no, no. This -- this is our big break. I mean, Zende's photos completely knocked Rick out, and these are gonna be even better.
Nicole: Yeah. Seems like it.
Sasha: [Sighs] You know, I was really starting to wonder what I was even doing in LA, but... well, look at me now. I've been given this amazing opportunity, and, Nic, I have you and Zende to thank. I'm so grateful that I came out here and that I have the both of you in my life.
Sasha: You hear about stories like this. You read about them in magazines, but you never think they're gonna happen to you.
Nicole: Just your luck.
Sasha: And with your morning sickness. I mean, think about it. If you hadn't gotten sick, who knows? I might be planning a trip back home right now, instead of working at Forrester Creations with my BFF! Girl, we are gonna rock this place, just like in high school. Come on! Deejay, hit it!
Zende: We should capture this energy.
Sasha: Come on, Nic!
Nicole: No thanks.
Zende: Come on. Go on. It's just for fun.
Nicole: No, I-I just -- I really don't feel like modeling.
[Camera shutter clicking]
Rick: You know, working together might be an adjustment.
Katie: We've done it before.
Rick: It's been awhile.
Katie: Yeah, well, we've been through a lot. We're wiser. And you know what? We don't have to play the same roles anymore. She's the big sister. I'm the little sister. We can be open and honest with each other.
Rick: The last few years have taught Mom a lot. And you know what? I'm proud of the both of you.
Katie: We're close. But I want us to be closer. I want us to be able to share everything.
Brooke: [Sighs] Oh, Bill. Bill. Bill? Bill. Did I catch the great Dollar Bill Spencer plotting his next conquest?
[Camera shutter clicking]
Zende: There you go. [Laughs]
Sasha: [Chuckles] Come on, Nic! Get in here. Remember how we used to pose and work it for your mom's mirror?
Zende: Ooh, I would love to see that.
Nicole: Uh, you know, we were kids. This is serious.
Zende: That's the beauty of it. It doesn't have to be. I mean, my photos didn't impress anyone until Sasha got me to loosen up.
Nicole: I was impressed.
Zende: Yeah, well, I mean, you'll be blown away by what I can do now, now that I'm actually having fun with it.
Sasha: Nobody knows more about fun than my best girl Nic.
Nicole: Zende's not getting paid to take photos of me.
Sasha: He's not getting paid at all. Not yet. Come on, you did some modeling when you first started at Forrester.
Nicole: Yeah, I tried, and if I wasn't modeling material back then, then I'm definitely not now. Unless Forrester starts making maternity clothes. Hey, I'll let you two get back to work.
Zende: You can stay and watch.
Nicole: No, you two need to focus and be professional. I'll see you later.
Sasha: Wish me luck. This is so fantastic!
Katie: I got to get back to Spencer.
Rick: Tell Mom I say hi, good luck.
Katie: I will. You know, she did love working with you. Being at Forrester with her children meant a lot to her.
Rick: It meant a lot to us, too. She needs a challenge. You've given her that.
Katie: Well, Spencer's gonna get a lot in return.
Rick: You don't have to tell me. Honestly, I can't believe we're letting her go.
Katie: I can't believe it, either. You know, with her expertise and her experience, she's the perfect choice for Eye on Fashion.
Rick: Given everything that's happened with you guys personally, it could be complicated. You're not concerned?
Katie: This is the right choice to make at the right time. And if there are questions, we will answer them. It won't cause trouble.
Brooke: So, what do you think about this layout? Is everything all right?
Bill: Yeah. Sure.
Brooke: Okay, well, you seem a little distracted. You know, I've been in the fashion industry a long time, but you had to know that there was gonna be a learning curve.
Bill: It's fine.
Brooke: It's fine? You like it? I mean, you haven't done a fashion show layout like this for the awards season, so I just want to know what your opinion was. I wanted some feedback on my idea. Bill. I want to give you what you want. I-I just don't know what that is. So you have to tell me. If there's a problem, I want you to tell me that, too.
Bill: There's no problem.
Brooke: [Chuckles] Okay. Well, you really haven't said two words to me since I've been here in this office.
Bill: It's good.
Brooke: [Sighs] I'm really sorry. About what happened the other day. I'm sorry that I kissed you. It was a mistake. It shouldn't have happened. I'm sorry that I said all of those things.
Bill: We don't have to talk about it, Brooke.
Brooke: I just don't want it to be awkward.
Bill: Then let's focus and get back to work.
Brooke: Not until I know that everything's all right, that what I told you about my feelings isn't making you think about something we agreed to forget. Look, I don't want to do this. I don't want to be a distraction for you and Katie. I love my sister too much.
Bill: So do I.
Brooke: And I would hate myself if I stirred anything up.
Bill: You haven't.
Brooke: I accepted the job because you made me think it would be okay. Telling you how I felt wouldn't be an issue.
Bill: It won't be. Actually, I hadn't even thought about it once until you brought it up. But now that you have, I-I want to make something crystal clear. I'm committed to Katie.
Brooke: I don't doubt that. But sometimes feelings do come up. But that's not you.
Bill: No, it's not.
Brooke: Good. So...there's nothing to be concerned about?
Bill: Nothing at all.
Brooke: [Sighs] I was hoping you would say that.
[Camera shutter clicks]
Zende: Come on. There we go. [Laughs] There we go.
[Camera shutter clicking]
Zende: Come on. Give me more. Come on. You're alive. Come on. Get up. Let's go, let's go!
[Camera shutter clicking]
Sasha: No, your turn.
Zende: No, what are you doing? Back up.
Sasha: Give me the camera. Your turn. Go.
Sasha: Zende. Go. Come on. You got it. There we go!
Zende: All right, that's enough. I'm done. Okay. They don't pay me to do that stuff. Okay.
Nicole: You hired Sasha? You -- you want her to model?
Rick: The photos that she took with Zende, they were impressive. They work really well together, don't you think?
Nicole: But she has no experience.
Rick: Yeah, but neither did your sister when she first started.
Nicole: But Sasha's never been interested in modeling. These photos, she was just fooling around and having fun.
Rick: And Zende was able to capture it on his camera. They were exciting, they're authentic. It's the best work that I've seen him do.
Nicole: Yeah, and I'm thrilled he's getting the chance. This is what he wants to do. Sasha's honestly just interested in the attention.
Rick: And she's gonna get a lot more if those photos make it to print.
Nicole: So, this might not happen?
Rick: Well, I wouldn't tell her to go put money down on an apartment. But I'd say there's a good chance that your best friend will be working with you right here at Forrester.
Nicole: That's what I wanted to talk to you about.
Rick: This isn't a favor, Nicole. Sasha's not getting this opportunity because she's your best friend. So you -- you don't have to thank me.
Nicole: [Chuckles] I didn't come here to thank you.
Brooke: I don't know what I was thinking, telling you how I felt. I really could have messed this up.
Bill: Don't sweat it.
Brooke: I meant every word. I just wish I didn't say it.
Bill: Well, we've all done things like that, Brooke. Don't beat yourself up. You got to move on. Put the past in the past.
Brooke: [Chuckles] My past has a way of catching up with me. It always has. I'm just glad it's not going to affect my relationship with you and Katie.
Bill: I won't let that happen. So just put it out of your mind. Your being here is good for business, and it's good for the family.
Brooke: I think it's good for me, too. It's gonna give me some energy. It's gonna push me out of my comfort zone. I think I can make an impact here, working with you and with my sister. I'm really excited about it. And I'm ready. I'm ready to learn. And I want to rebuild our friendship. Do you think we can do that, Bill? Be friends?
Katie: Oh! Hi!
Katie: Still hard at work, I see.
Brooke: I'm running my ideas by your husband.
Katie: You're not wasting any time.
Brooke: I'm excited to get to work.
Katie: This is the right place for you. Right here at Spencer with your family. This is where you belong.
[Camera shutter clicking]
Zende: There we go. Just a few more.
Sasha: [Chuckles] I could do this all day.
[Camera shutter clicking]
Zende: Yeah, I think we got it.
Sasha: Are they good?
Zende: Come see for yourself.
Sasha: Oh, wow! You are really talented.
Zende: Thanks. We make a good team.
Sasha: I know. Even though, uh, nothing's happened yet -- I know Rick still has to make the final decision -- I don't want to get ahead of myself. But, you know, I'm so grateful. I really meant what I said to Nic. Modeling at Forrester, it's beyond anything I could have ever imagined for myself. But it means even more that you and Nicole opened these doors for me.
Rick: Nicole, are you upset that I hired Sasha?
Nicole: I have a few tiny concerns.
Rick: I told you, this is not a favor. I didn't give her this opportunity because she's your best friend.
Nicole: She is my friend. Which is why this is so hard. And I didn't come here to stab her in the back. I hate coming to you with this at all. But I have to be honest about my feelings. I don't feel comfortable with Sasha and Zende working together.
Rick: I thought you two were like sisters.
Nicole: We are. She's my girl. I love her. You know, she's beautiful, funny, and exciting to be around. But there's always been this weird dynamic, like she's competing with me, trying to prove something. She was always more popular in school and always had the hot guys.
Rick: What are you asking me, Nicole? To not give Sasha the job as a model?
Brooke: I was just telling Bill how glad I am to be here.
Katie: Well, I hope he was making you feel welcome.
Brooke: We had a good talk.
Bill: Why don't you pitch your idea?
Brooke: I will. But first I would like you to hear something. I already talked to Bill and told him how I feel, and now I want you to hear it. When you first offered me the job, I said no. I wasn't completely honest with you. I was scared. I mean, I built up this cocoon, you know, around Forrester and around my life, and I did that in order to feel safe. But that's really no way to live, right? It's a good way to build up a lot of regrets. And gosh knows I have a lot of those already, so I-I just want to thank you. I really want to thank you for this opportunity and for allowing me to be able to prove myself to you.
Katie: Prove yourself? You've -- you don't need to prove yourself. You are the perfect fit for Spencer and for Eye on Fashion. I mean, you agree with that, right?
Katie: Listen, you are so respected in this industry and admired by readers all over the world. You are going to bring a new energy and excitement to Spencer Publications. I mean, I can feel it already. Look at us. We are three passionate people. If we join that passion together, who knows what we can accomplish.
[Cell phone chimes]
Katie: Oh. [Chuckles] I have a meeting. See you in a minute.
Brooke: Okay. [Chuckles] I'll be here when you get back.
Katie: Good. Good. Oh! I'm glad.
Katie: See you in a minute.
Brooke: She's right, you know. We could do some amazing things together. If we are all on the same page.
Bill: We are.
Brooke: You didn't answer me before. Friends? Do you think we can be that? Oh, Bill. Bill. Can we do that? Not just co-exist, but be friends.
Bill: Yeah. Co-workers, friends. I want that, too.
Brooke: Okay. [Sighs]
