Wyatt: Oh, it's perfect.
Steffy: Uh, maybe we should start taking photos of me actually working.
Wyatt: What? No! These are -- These are all the publicity shots we have to take for the Spencer Summit press release and the literature, okay? We'll have plenty of time to do the candid photos in Monte Carlo. Besides, you -- Go take a look. Go take a look.
Steffy: Okay, babe. Please.
Wyatt: Right now, we are capturing...Steffy Forrester, high-powered executive and Internet superstar, behind the scenes at her latest photo shoot.
Steffy: Okay, do you -- do you think that we're, like, overselling this?
Wyatt: What? Heck no! You're getting 10,000 new followers a week, and I just want to keep that momentum going all the way up until the summit, okay? We're gonna have a great trip.
Steffy: Yeah, I'm looking forward to it. I think it's gonna be a great time to stay as far away from your mother as possible.
Deacon: I mean, this is ridiculous, even for you. Sneaking into Forrester in disguise? I mean, what was next? You were gonna slip into Eric's office and surprise him?
Eric: Steffy sent me updates on all the new lines.
Ridge: I can go over them with you if you'd like.
Eric: Good. I would like that. Unless seeing me here in this office is too much of a strain or a stress for you.
Ridge: It's gonna take some getting used to, but, no, it's not a strain or a stress. It's the right thing. You should be running this company. I got to focus on my family.
Eric: That's a wise decision.
Ridge: I didn't come up with it on my own. Brooke helped me.
Brooke: We need to talk.
Bill: I wondered when you'd show up.
Brooke: How could you do this to Katie?
Bill: Katie ended it, Brooke. She doesn't want me back.
Brooke: You took her son away from her, Bill.
Bill: No, I kept Katie from taking my son from me.
Brooke: Where is he? I want to see him.
Bill: He's fine where he is.
Brooke: No, he's not fine. He needs to be with his mother!
Quinn: I got into the office no problem. But Eric wasn't there. Steffy was.
Deacon: Well, did she recognize you?
Quinn: Not at first.
Deacon: Quinn, I told you this thing with Eric was gonna backfire on you. Steffy told you stay away from her and her family. That's all you had to do!
Quinn: I wasn't going to see her. Besides, staying away is not an option. Steffy is married to Wyatt, and I'm gonna be a part of their lives. She just has to...see that I've changed.
Steffy: Your mom is crazier than ever.
Wyatt: Yeah, I'm not gonna argue with you. Believe me, getting away from my mother sounds pretty good right about now.
Steffy: Mm, are you sure 6,000 miles is far enough?
Wyatt: [Chuckles] Hey, we're gonna be so busy in Monte Carlo, we won't even have a second to think about it.
Steffy: I just still can't believe your dad isn't going. Spencer Summit -- that's his event.
Wyatt: Yeah, well, that just shows you how bad things are with Katie.
Steffy: He took her son away from her, Wyatt.
Wyatt: Uh, and he feels like he's protecting Will. Can we not get into this right now, please? Look, if Dad stays here in L.A., maybe they can work things out. That's all we can hope for. But that still leaves us one big-name speaker short for the conference. So...um... I was wondering if maybe your grandfather would do it. I mean, Eric's not only an icon in fashion, he's a -- he's a legend in international business.
Steffy: That's a brilliant idea.
Wyatt: Right?! Do you think he'd do it?
Steffy: I'll ask him.
Ridge: When the truth about Douglas comes out, I've got to be there for my family. I've got to protect them. I can't be distracted with anything else.
Eric: Brooke helped you come to this conclusion?
Ridge: Yeah. You know, we forget -- when there's a crisis, Brooke always knows what to do.
Eric: Well, she's been through that situation before -- quite a few times.
Ridge: She's learned the hard way, but now she can tackle anything that comes her way.
Brooke: Think about what you're doing to Katie and Will.
Bill: I am. I'm protecting my son. I'm not being heartless. I'm concerned about Katie, which is why I don't want her alone with Will.
Brooke: She is not a danger to him!
Bill: What is it, Alison? Katie's in the building? Great. Well, tell her she can call me and we can talk just as we have been. Don't let her up. You know the drill.
Brooke: Seriously? You're not gonna let her up here?
Bill: She's gonna make a scene. I will not have that.
Brooke: Keeping Will from his mother is wrong, and I'm not gonna let you do it. I won’t allow it.
Steffy: Yes. Yes. No.
Steffy: Oh, no, no. No.
Wyatt: Here you go, my dear.
Steffy: Ah, thank you.
Wyatt: So, do you think Eric will really do it?
Steffy: I think the Spencer Summit is the perfect place for my grandfather to announce his return as Forrester C.E.O.
Wyatt: W-- I thought that was only temporary.
Steffy: Well, it is, but we still want to make headlines.
Wyatt: Yeah, and keep the spotlight off the news about Douglas' paternity.
Steffy: When it comes out, yeah.
Wyatt: Yeah. Uh, any idea of when that'll be?
Steffy: [Laughs] It should have happened before Douglas was born. It's like the moment my father knew that Thomas was the father, he should have been honest about it. I mean, keeping this secret was so messed up.
Wyatt: God, what is it about both of our parents that are making horrible decisions lately?
Wyatt: But you know what? We can't let that affect us. We got to go to Monte Carlo, we got to host this summit, and just get away from all the drama.
Steffy: You think your mom might do something crazy while we're gone?
Wyatt: I hope not. I will go talk to her.
Steffy: Oh, you'll go talk to her?
Steffy: You'll talk to her?
Steffy: Yeah, I don't think talking to her really does anything good.
Deacon: You know, Quinn, you're kidding yourself if you think Steffy's gonna come around.
Quinn: She has to eventually.
Deacon: No. No, she doesn't. And there's no guarantee that this little thing with Eric is gonna pan out, either.
Quinn: Look, he could have broken things off when Steffy caught me, but he didn't.
Deacon: Not yet. But after what happened at the office, the way that Steffy reacted, it's a -- it's a matter of time.
Quinn: When did you become such a pessimist?
Deacon: I'm not a pessimist! I'm a realist! You should be, too.
Quinn: Look, I had a little setback with Steffy, okay? But it hasn't hurt my -- my relationship with Wyatt or my connection with Eric.
Eric: It's good that you have someone to open up to. It's good. It's good for Brooke, too. Did she mention what's going on in her life? She seems a little, uh, stressed and preoccupied these days.
Ridge: Well, people go through stuff.
Eric: Yeah, they do, and it's very good to have someone they can depend on, talk to.
Ridge: Yeah, I agree.
Eric: You and Brooke did that for me for quite a while when your mother passed away.
Ridge: Glad to do it.
Eric: And Brooke, of course, has her family. She has her sisters, and... I think it's terrific she has you to open up to.
Ridge: Well, she does. And she knows that. You know, it's nice & cause we don't judge each other. We just -- We're there for the kids, for the family, and to take care of the people that we care about.
Brooke: She is here, Bill. At least talk to her!
Brooke: She has a right to know what you've done with her son.
Bill: Will is safe -- a Hell of a lot safer than he'd be with her. She's out of control, Brooke! Threatening to take my son? Deny me custody? Telling me I'll never see him again?
Brooke: She was upset! What we did --
Bill: Is irrelevant. Her reaction was reckless and irresponsible, on top of the drinking and tantrums.
Alison: No, no, no, no!
Katie: Where is he?
Alison: I'll call security.
Brooke: No, don't.
Katie: What have you done with him? Where is my son?
Wyatt: You don't seem surprised to see me.
Quinn: Well, I'm always thrilled when you stop by, sweetheart.
Wyatt: Yeah, well, maybe not this time.
Quinn: Oh. Is this, uh -- Is this about what happened at Forrester?
Wyatt: Yeah. You snuck into Forrester dressed like a Russian guy?
Quinn: I wouldn't have gotten very far if I looked like myself.
Wyatt: This is funny now. This is funny for you.
Quinn: Look. It was a harmless stunt.
Wyatt: Steffy and I have told you repeatedly to stay away from her and her family, Mom. Why can't you do that? Why can't you do what I ask you to do? Just stay away! Stay away from my wife and don't go over there. Instead, what do you do? You go from crazy to completely insane! Like, why do you continue to do that?
Quinn: Well, look at where I'm living, you know? I just -- I wanted to get my job back!
Wyatt: Yeah, Steffy said that. But I don't believe it.
Quinn: I thought it was worth a shot.
Wyatt: In what universe? Cause in this one, you have no shot. You have zero shot of getting your job back right now.
Quinn: Maybe not. Steffy may hate me, for the moment, but not everybody at Forrester does. I mean... Eric has always been a very kind and generous man.
Eric: I know how to handle Quinn.
Ridge: What about Quinn? Here you go.
Steffy: Oh, you didn't hear? She was at the office.
Ridge: She was here to see you?
Steffy: No. She's crazy. She's not stupid. There's no way I'm giving her her job back. So she thought she'd have some luck with Granddad.
Ridge: What did she say?
Eric: Nothing I want to repeat.
Steffy: What's the point? We heard it 1,000 times. The excuses, the apologies. And that disguise? Ugh. I just can't wait to get away from her. Actually, that's why I'm here. You know about the Spencer Summit, right?
Ridge: In Monte Carlo, yes.
Steffy: Well, Bill asked Wyatt to host it.
Eric: Bill usually does that himself.
Steffy: Not this year. And he wants me to go, too. I-I can't really get into details, but he has to stay in L.A. He has his, um -- his hands full with Katie and Will.
Katie: Well, I guess it's no surprise finding the two of you here.
Katie: Have Alison call whoever she wants to -- security, the police -- I'm not leaving here without my son.
Brooke: No, no. Nobody is calling the police.
Katie: Oh, I will be calling the police if this doesn't end soon. I've already called Liam. I've called your sister, every nanny we ever had. I've even hired a private detective.
Bill: You shouldn't have done that, Katie.
Katie: Really? Where are you hiding my child?
Bill: I'm not hiding him. I am protecting him, which was obviously the right call because you've lost it.
Katie: [Laughing] Right.
Bill: I mean, hiring a private detective? Really? Involving my family? Come on.
Katie: What did you expect me to do? Just sit by idly while you steal my child from me?
Bill: Barging in here, making threats, and posturing is going to accomplish nothing. You just need to calm down and get yourself together.
Katie: I'm not being irrational. My fears were never irrational, were they? You just wanted me to think they were.
Bill: It never went as far as you thought.
Katie: What does that mean, and what does it even matter? You know what? You're right. Have Justin meet you at the police station. I didn't want to get the authorities involved, but this is kidnapping and I'm having you arrested.
Brooke: Wait, okay! Okay. We all need to just calm down here and just talk about it.
Katie: I need my son, Brooke.
Brooke: I know you do. Bill and I are not involved, Katie. I'm here for you. For you and Will. He needs his mother. I told Bill to give you your son back.
Eric: Bill didn't want both of his sons to co-host the event?
Steffy: No, he did. Liam's coming, too, but we need more than three Spencers to take Bill's place, so Wyatt thought we should ask you, too.
Steffy: Yeah. You know, people come to the Spencer Summit to hear big players in international business. And if we don't have Bill, we need a heavy hitter, and that's you. You're an innovator with a long record of proven success.
Eric: Oh, wait. So you would want me to speak?
Steffy: We would be honored. And you can announce your return as C.E.O.
Ridge: You should do it, Dad.
Steffy: Yeah, we can clear Eva's schedule, and she can meet us there for all the Forrester publicity.
Eric: It's an interesting idea.
Ridge: It really is. I'll hold down the fort.
Steffy: And keep an eye out for Quinn.
Eric: Oh, she's not likely to pull a stunt like that again.
Steffy: Uh, let's hope not. But we won't be here to be bothered by it.
Wyatt: Yeah, Eric is a kind man. Anyone else would have called the cops and had you thrown in jail for trespassing.
Quinn: Is that why you stopped by here? To tell me that your wife is angry at me? You know what you need to do? You need to tell your wife that all that stress and animosity -- it isn't good for her.
Wyatt: Yeah, well, it's not good for me, either, Mom! Look, I love you.
Wyatt: Okay? But I hate the position that you put me in. This is hard for me, okay? God, I just need a break. That's why I came here to tell you I'm going away for a while.
Quinn: You're leaving town?
Wyatt: No, St-- Well, Steffy and I are hosting the Spencer Summit in Monte Carlo together.
Quinn: [Gasps] That sounds so romantic!
Wyatt: It's a business thing. 'Cause Liam's hosting, too.
Quinn: Won't that be awkward?
Wyatt: Well, hopefully it won't just be the three of us. Steffy's asking her grandfather to go be a guest speaker, as well.
Quinn: Really? Eric may be going, too?
Katie: This really doesn't involve you, Brooke.
Brooke: I know what Will means to you.
Katie: Well, that didn't stop you from moving in on my husband and destroying my family.
Brooke: It should have.
Bill: No. Look, if you really want to rehash this, let's at least be honest about it, all right? Brooke didn't move in on me, and I didn't abandon you. The opposite is true. I stuck with you -- through the depression, the insecurities, and then the drinking. I was there, looking out for Will and supporting you.
Katie: Yeah, you're a champ. Every time I asked you about what was going on with Brooke, you denied it.
Bill: You were hanging on by your fingernails, Katie!
Katie: Because you were lying to my face!
Bill: What's your excuse now?
Katie: What you did to me was unbelievably cruel, and what you're doing now -- keeping me away from my son -- is despicable.
Bill: Your instability around Will is dangerous.
Katie: Just because you call me unstable does not make it true.
Bill: History does. I am giving you time to get the help you need. Why are you wasting it fighting with me?
Brooke: She is asking you to do what is right for her son. And so am I. I'm sorry for the way I treated you. I'm sorry for what I did to you and to your family, but you know what? I'm not gonna sit at home wallowing in my grief. I'm here because I am determined to fix this.
Bill: No one is asking you to do that.
Brooke: Will is an innocent little boy. And he loves you both. He needs both of his parents -- his father and his mother. Look, I am not naive. I don't think that your wounds are going to heal overnight. But thinking that you're protecting Will by keeping him away from his mother? That's wrong. You need to reunite Katie and Will. Please, I -- I don't want to see you do something that you're gonna regret for the rest of your lives.
Bill: No. Will's safety comes first.
Katie: Oh, my God.
Brooke: Katie is Will's mother!
Bill: I don't trust her. I can't do it.
Brooke: Yes, you can. You are gonna pick up that phone and you're gonna call whoever it is that has Will, and you're gonna tell them to bring him down here. Right now. Do you hear me, Bill? You are going to reunite Katie and Will, today.
