Episode # 7263 ~ The pain of the past is revisited when Katie hears a conversation not meant for her ears; guests at the Forrester cocktail party share their personal Stephanie stories with Ridge.
Proofread By Gisele
Ridge: Let's try and take it easy. No one is knocking Maya. You know that.
Rick: Trust me. I'm perfectly clear on who's being insulted here.
Eric: Rick, it's only for the weekend. It's for this one particular audience.
Rick: Really? Then why was it done behind my back? Dad, did you or did you not tell me that this was my home?
Ridge: It's our home. It's her home.
Rick: Then I won't be back in this house until my wife's portrait's back on that wall.
Bridget: Does Rick miss being CEO? Be honest.
Maya: Hmm. I don't know. It was so important to him for so long, but... maybe he just needed to prove to himself that he could be successful at it, you know?
Bridget: Or maybe while he was pursuing what he thought would make him happy...something he never expected did.
Maya: It's funny how that happens. I thought I was gonna have to choose between being myself and being loved, and then your brother walked in with this tie-dyed T-shirt, and he brought me an egg and a cup of coffee, and that's where my whole life began.
[Knock on door]
Wyatt: Is that scotch? What is this, an office party?
Katie: Oh, yeah. It's always a party here at Spencer Publications.
Wyatt: Okay. Where's Dad? Is he in a meeting or giving an interview or a speech or something?
Katie: No, but he's probably listening to one.
Wyatt: What is -- what is that? What are you doing over there?
Katie: I'm tracking down my friends.
Wyatt: You're tracking him on your phone?
Katie: No! I'm not tracking Bill. He likes his cloak of invisibility. My sister, on the other hand, is not as particular. And you know, we Logan girls -- we share everything, some would say to a fault. Anyway, I know where your father is. He's at home. With my sister.
Bill: You know, it's just so unlike her. I mean, Katie would have a glass of wine at dinner and -- and not even finish it. Even with the postpartum, even after we broke up, she had no use for hard liquor. And now, recently, that's changed. And last night --
Brooke: Okay. You don't have to say anything more. You think she needs help.
Bill: I don't like feeling about my wife the way I felt last night.
Brooke: I remember how beside herself she was about your drinking when nobody else even noticed.
Bill: Exactly. It's got me thinking about Katie's relationship to alcohol, how it's -- it's -- it's like it's all or nothing. You know, if anybody ever told me this would be a problem that Katie and I would have, I would have laughed in their face. I don't want to lose her, Brooke. It never occurred to me that you could lose somebody while you're standing there looking at them.
Wyatt: Okay, well, do you know when Dad's coming back?
Katie: To which one of us?
Wyatt: To the office! Katie, if Brooke's at your house, don't you think she's probably waiting for you?
Katie: No. She's found what she's looking for or she wouldn't still be there.
Wyatt: Katie... [Sighs] Are you and Dad having trouble?
Katie: We're both having the same trouble -- Brooke. She's doing her magic act -- you know, the one where she pines after some man and then she snaps her fingers and he's hers again.
Bridget: I do miss Mom's olive spread. I mean, I know she buys it at a store in West Hollywood, but to me, it's hers.
Maya: Yeah. I have to ask her where she gets it, so I can keep some around the house for Rick.
Bridget: [Chuckles] You are perfect for my brother. A woman who is always thinking about him.
Maya: Yeah. That's definitely me. [Laughs]
Bridget: Oh, hey.
Maya: Rick. Honey, what happened?
Bridget: Oh, no. Don't tell me that you and Ridge already got into a fight.
Rick: He took your picture down.
Ridge: This is my wife, Caroline.
Alice: Well, now you are beautiful.
Caroline: Oh, thank you. You're very kind.
Alice: You remind me of your namesake. Your aunt?
Caroline: Oh, yes. [Chuckles]
Alice: She was beautiful, too.
Caroline: Thank you.
Ridge: Thank you. Hey.
Eric: Alice, is that you? I haven't seen you for a couple of years. I've missed you.
Alice: Oh, well, I've been so sad without Stephanie, but here she is.
Eric: Here she is.
Maya: Well, maybe it was timing. It's the CEO invitational weekend, right? Tonight was the opening cocktail?
Rick: Yeah, what does that matter? It doesn't mean that Ridge gets to redecorate.
Maya: Well, it's for Eric's oldest clients. And they are...older. So, maybe they're not so excited about the fact that the lead model is transgender.
Bridget: No, no, no. We -- we actually know them quite well. They're not like that.
Rick: Right. But Ridge's excuse is that they -- they all would love to see Stephanie as big as life again.
Maya: So, he hung up his mother's portrait instead.
Rick: She doesn't live there. And neither does he. We do.
Harold: Stephanie said, "How much do you get paid for every signature that you get?" And the man said, "$2." "Well," said Stephanie, "Would you take $500 for the whole lot and throw it in the bin where it belongs?"
Alice: Thank you so much for the lovely start to our weekend.
Caroline: Well, it's our pleasure. Do you have any other plans while you're in town?
Alice: Yes, I'm gonna go down to the marina for a tour.
Caroline: All day?
Alice: Eh, three hours or so.
Caroline: Oh, that sounds really lovely.
Caroline: I'm so happy I finally got to meet you.
Alice: You, as well. Thank you.
Alice: You know, last fall, when I was in Paris, I saw our Hungarian ambassador dressed in a Forrester Original, looking as gorgeous as ever, and I thought, "if I could just tell st-- oh. Stephanie."
Ridge: I think you just did.
Alice: [Chuckles] Yes. You're right.
Eric: Gina, I am so glad I get to see you again.
Gina: I neglected to ask about Eric, Jr. I see that he and his wife are --
Eric: He and his wife are expecting, as well. It's not common knowledge yet.
Gina: Remarkable. Give them my congratulations.
Eric: So I will.
Ridge: Thanks for coming.
Alice: Oh, thanks for having me.
Ridge: Good night. Good job hosting the party, Mom.
Bill: I'm not even sure if telling her to stop and go to meetings is the right thing. It's not like Katie drinks because she can't help herself. It's more like it's a deliberate choice every time.
Brooke: You think maybe she's looking for a reaction from you?
Bill: No. No. It's like she is looking for a reaction in her. I guess that's what scares me. I'm the same person whether I drink or not, but in Katie's case, it seems that she drinks to become someone who will do or say something that she otherwise never would.
Wyatt: Hey, have you seen Liam? 'Cause Alison and Justin haven't, either.
Katie: No one has seen Liam. Your father has not heard from Liam. He's very upset with him.
Katie: God, she is taking her time. Is there an app that would tell me what room they're in?
Wyatt: Okay, Katie, if you really think something's going on --
Katie: No, no, no, no. Not "if." Not "if." Brooke has said that she is after Bill again. I mean, she hasn't used those words, but that's what she means.
Wyatt: So, what? You're just sitting here, drinking by yourself? Throwing in the towel? Is that it?
Katie: No. I'm not. I'm not going down easily this time.
Wyatt: You're not driving, are you?
Katie: No, I'm taking a car.
Wyatt: I'm just asking. Look, you don't know if the conclusions you're jumping to are the right ones, right? So just tell yourself you're on a fact-finding mission or something.
Katie: No, no, no. The facts are not missing. The facts are well-known. Has Bill said anything to you about me?
Wyatt: To me? No. Nothing. No. I mean, I don't think he confides in anyone but -- but you.
Katie: Okay, um... don't tell him I asked you that, and...
Wyatt: I won't.
Katie: ...Don't tell him you saw me like this.
Rick: Don't look at me like that just because Ridge is throwing a party.
Bridget: No, you said that he took Maya's picture down. You failed to mention that he put Stephanie's up.
Rick: Yeah. It's not his house to do what he wants with.
Bridget: Rick, he grew up there. We didn't.
Rick: Yeah, no kidding. Stephanie didn't want us anywhere near that place.
Bridget: That's a little bit of an exaggeration, don't you think?
Bridget: All I'm saying is, yeah, maybe he's a little proprietary. It's probably true. His annual guests like seeing Stephanie's portrait. I mean, can I tell you something? I adore your wife. I couldn't love her more. I am so grateful for all the good that she's brought into your life. But when I walk in that house... I like seeing Stephanie's picture. It feels respectful. It feels right.
Rick: So, now I'm disrespectful.
Bridget: [Sighs] I didn't say that. Did you hear me say that?
Rick: It sounded like that's just what she said.
Maya: You know what? What if, maybe, Ridge put that picture up there especially for his guests, like the flowers and the favors and all that?
Rick: Yeah. That's what he says. "It's just for the weekend."
Maya: Okay, so why don't we give him till Monday to prove his good faith?
Rick: No. I'm gonna give him till tonight, after the cocktail party. And when everybody else shows up for the brunch the next day, they're gonna see our lead model's portrait over the fireplace. Their party's over. We should go home.
Ridge: Just like the old days, huh?
Eric: Yeah, except for all the aches and pains, yeah.
Ridge: It's not just you. Caroline left. She went home to rest for a little while.
Eric: She's looking readier every day. I imagined Stephanie's eyes following her around the room for the whole evening. She would be absolutely beside herself, knowing another grandchild was coming.
Ridge: She belongs there.
Eric: Life is change, Ridge.
Ridge: Yeah, maybe. Or maybe life is remembering, keeping somebody's memory alive. She earned that. And Rick -- he can take Maya's picture, put it up in the hallway, his office, bedroom. But not here. This is her space. You know I'm right.
Brooke: I can suggest it.
Bill: No. She obviously needs help, but I don't know that that's such a good idea, Brooke.
Brooke: What can it hurt? "Katie, I'm going to a 12-step meeting. Would you like to join me?"
Bill: Are you forgetting how she takes any suggestion from you right now, no matter how innocent? She'll hear it as an accusation.
Brooke: I'm okay with letting her know I think her drinking's becoming a problem. This is not gonna just go away.
Bill: She's already been so hurt, Brooke.
Brooke: Then let me take the brunt of it. I think it's better if I tell her than if you do.
Katie: Tell me what? That the two of you are having another affair?
Ridge: Cheers. I miss her, too, you know?
Eric: Of course, you do.
Ridge: And not just me -- Thorne, Felicia, Kristen. Do you ever wonder why they don't come here? There's too much Rick in this house, all over this house, too many people that no one knows.
Eric: That's hardly a fair criticism of Maya and her sister.
Ridge: I'm --
Eric: I mean, did he -- did Rick break some rule by marrying somebody not a friend of the family?
Ridge: I'm not criticizing anybody. I think Maya is nice. Her sister is nice. The pa-- everyone is -- is nice, but... when Maya's picture's up there and my mom's kids walk through that door, it just doesn't feel like home. It feels like home, but somebody else's home.
Ridge: Hey, Maya.
Maya: Hi, Ridge. Hey, Eric.
Eric: You're back.
Maya: Yeah. I had a nice visit with Bridget.
Rick: How was the party?
Ridge: The party was a success.
Eric: It was. It was terrific.
Rick: I don't like how we left things.
Maya: I'm -- I'm just gonna go upstairs. Okay.
Ridge: How -- how we left things? You left. You ran out like a little girl.
Rick: Well, never let it be said that I'm not one to compromise.
Eric: I'm glad to hear that.
Rick: Meaning I'm willing to meet you halfway.
Ridge: I'm sorry. Maybe it's me. I have no idea what you're talking about right now.
Rick: Oh, really, Ridge? Come on. You couldn't at least bubble-wrap it for me, protect it a little bit?
Eric: Could we maybe have this conversation a different time?
Rick: No, Dad. I understand why you want Stephanie's portrait to be up there for the cocktail party. It's a sentimental journey for our earliest clients. When they return for the closing brunch, we can take Stephanie's portrait down, put Maya's back up there. Show them our new lead model. You see... [Clears throat] If you could just take a look here... Stephanie -- yesterday. Maya -- today.
Ridge: Why do you -- why do you do that? Why do you -- why do you pretend to be in charge? You're not in charge.
Rick: What? I-I'm sorry. I wasn't even talking to you. Dad? Dad?
Bill: This is what you do? You sneak in the back door so you can spy on me?
Katie: Who's sneaking? I'm not allowed to walk into my own home? I-I'm sure -- I'm sure I'm overreacting. I'm sure the two of you standing alone in my living room is just all in my mind.
Bill: This is how you come home to me? This is what you bring home to our son?
Katie: You do it every night.
Bill: How many drinks have you had, Katie?
Katie: It was all the same drink, Bill. It's what I do. It's how I pass the time while I'm wondering how long the two of you need.
Bill: Are you so out of touch with reality that you think I would bring a woman -- any woman -- into our home and bed her just down the hall from our son and our nanny?
Katie: You really want me to answer that question?
Bill: I do.
Katie: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I-I know that you would never do anything like that, because you love and you respect our family, but I know her. And I know what she does when she thinks her destiny is right around the corner, and she's following her heart.
Bill: Katie... Brooke is here because I asked her to be here. I wanted to have a private conversation. Is that not allowed?
Katie: No. Don't do that. Don't make me into the controlling wife. You can see whoever you want to see. But I know how she takes that. She will grasp at any excuse to be close to you.
Bill: Brooke is here for you.
Katie: Really? Did it take you a couple of hours to realize that I wasn't home? So, you have something to tell me. What is it?
Brooke: That your drinking is out of control.
Katie: [Laughs] That is -- that is rich coming from you. I mean, is that the angle you're working? Don't you remember how this whole thing started? I offered you a job to get you out of your house to keep you from wallowing in your own misery and drowning yourself in a bottle. I mean, that's how this whole thing started. Who knew that you would use it as an excuse to get in touch with your inner slut?
Brooke: Okay, that's just the alcohol talking.
Katie: Of course, it is. Of course, it is. It's just the alcohol talking. Because I'm not allowed to talk. And whatever I say, I'm sure I don't mean it, because I'm supposed to be quiet and grateful. I'm supposed to be dead, right, Brooke? And that way, you can wait a suitable period of time, and then you can show up on Bill's doorstep with -- with -- I don't know. What is it you can make? How about a casserole? I mean, anybody can make a casserole, right? And you can go, "Mm! I'm sure you just need some company." Is that the day you're waiting for, Brooke? Because you're gonna have an awful long wait. I survived you once. And I'm not just gonna hand him over to you again.
