Episode # 7396 ~ Ridge & Steffy want Eric & Quinn to stay separated, so they work on ensuring that; Bill thinks Ridge is behind Katie's sudden interest in Forrester Creations, and he confides this theory to Liam.
Provided By SuzanneLiam: Katie wants your 12.5% of Forrester?
Bill: And she was standing right beside Brooke when she said it.
Liam: What does that mean?
Bill: I don't know what it means. I tried to get Brooke to weigh in on the settlement. She wouldn't do it. Then Katie turned it down. And it was a hell of an offer -- lot of perks and 50 million bucks. She wants the stock instead.
Bill: That's what I'm trying to figure out. But I'm very confident the dressmaker's behind it.
Liam: Well, Ridge has always wanted your shares. Listen, I'm sure you'll figure it out. I-I got to tell you what happened in Monte Carlo. Eric has a new woman in his life.
Eric: Monte Carlo was a big success. Announcing my return as C.E.O. at the summit generated a lot of positive press. Very good idea, Steffy. Thanks for that. I was very inspired, talking about Forrester there and about the next few years ahead, or however long my tenure lasts. We have a great team in place here -- Rick, international. Steffy's president. We'll miss Caroline, back east with her two moms, but Ridge and Thomas have design well in hand. I'm very confident in our future. The only area where we have diminishing returns is, uh, the jewelry line.
Quinn: It's good to see you, sweetheart. I guess the trip back from Monte Carlo went well.
Wyatt: Actually, Mom, it was pretty awkward. No, thanks. My wife isn't exactly thrilled with me right now because of you.
Quinn: [Sighs] I know, honey, and I am so sorry.
Wyatt: Just -- just tell me that it's over between you and Eric.
Quinn: We never wanted to cause any problems for you and Steffy.
Wyatt: I know. I talked to Eric before I left Monte Carlo. He said that he ended things with you. Now I need to hear it from you right about now. You and Eric can't happen. I don't care how good together you are or how you feel about each other. It has to be over.
Bill: Well, it's about time.
Liam: No, it's a problem, Dad. Eric's...girlfriend showed up in Monaco.
Bill: Mixing a little business with pleasure? I have no problem with that.
Liam: No. No. She wasn't invited. She just followed him there.
Bill: Quite the little vixen.
Liam: Dad, the woman in Eric's life is Quinn.
Quinn: I didn't target Eric. I fell for him. Our connection is genuine.
Wyatt: Mom, come on!
Quinn: It wasn't my intention to upset you and Steffy. I'm so sorry that she's angry.
Wyatt: Yeah? Well, she can't take it anymore, and neither can I. You got to leave.
Wyatt: You need to leave L.A. You got to go somewhere. Go do something -- whatever you want. Make a happy life wherever you want -- just away from us and away from Eric.
Ridge: The jewelry line isn't a priority.
Thomas: Without a designer, there's no reason to make it one.
Steffy: Yeah. Why even bring it up?
Ridge: We have more important things to talk about.
Eric: Yes, we do. Ridge, I want to commend you on how you handled releasing the information of Douglas' paternity. The exclusive sit-down with Thomas and you is exactly the right thing to do. It deflected any speculation, and it shielded Caroline from the spotlight. Well done.
Ridge: Thank you, Dad. Well, Caroline doesn't like being the focus. That's why she's in new York with Douglas.
Eric: Maybe she needs to stay there awhile -- keep her head down.
Ridge: Yeah. You heard the interview. Our marriage is over, and, uh... she's just gonna stay there and decompress with her moms.
Eric: There's no way to salvage, then?
Ridge: No. We're doing what's right for Douglas. We talked about it. We decided together this is what's best for the family.
Eric: That's a shame. I understand, though. Douglas is a child. You have to do what's best for him.
Thomas: Caroline and her moms are taking great care of Douglas.
Pam: Spoiling him rotten.
Ridge: Well, since we're talking about personal lives, is there anything you want to share about yours, dad? Pam and Rick -- they probably want to hear about your trip. You want to fill them in?
Liam: I mean, h-how many times was she warned to stay away from Steffy and her family and she didn't listen?
Bill: You can't put that on your brother.
Liam: Why not?! He told her not to worry. He promised Steffy he'd make sure Quinn wouldn't be a problem for them.
Bill: This is about Quinn, Liam! She's the problem, not your brother!
Liam: But you don't think Wyatt recognizes what this is doing to Steffy? She can't handle this. She shouldn't have to.
Bill: You got to let them deal with it.
Liam: Oh, don't -- don't do that. No more mandates, okay? You don't get to tell me to respect Wyatt and Steffy's marriage and you get to have your little affair with Brooke. I'm not listening to that.
Bill: I will mandate what I want to mandate, and don't project your anger of Wyatt on me.
Liam: Fine, dad! Fine! I'm just worried about Steffy. That's all this is. You know how dangerous Quinn can be. And now she's trying to infiltrate Steffy's whole family? It's too much! We have to get Steffy away from Wyatt in order to get her away from Wyatt's mother.
Quinn: You want me to leave Los Angeles?
Wyatt: This could cost me my marriage. Is that what you want?
Wyatt: So then just do this for me. I wish that it didn't have to be this way, but there are limits. Pursuing Eric, going after him, like, following us to Monte Carlo -- are you serious?! You made a bad situation literally impossible.
Quinn: Look, it only looks that way right now, but I'm --
Wyatt: Mom, Steffy will never forgive you. And if I don't do something about it right now to -- to -- to fix it, she'll never forgive me, either.
Quinn: I never wanted to hurt you.
Quinn: You know I care more about your happiness than I do my own. Honey, maybe we could all be happy, right? I mean, all of us -- you and Steffy, me and --
Wyatt: Don't e-- don't...even say you and Eric.
Eric: This is a business meeting. I wasn't gonna discuss my personal life. But since Ridge clearly wants to get into it, I will. Pam, can you stop taking notes here, please? Thomas and Ridge and Steffy know about this, but you two don't. There's a new woman in my life. It's a mature, adult relationship.
Pam: Eric, I knew there was something different about you -- extra little spring in your step.
Eric: We've been very good for each other.
Rick: That's great, Dad. I'm happy for you.
Eric: I've been seeing Quinn Fuller.
Eric: It's not a full-blown love affair.
Steffy: Oh, and that can never happen. That can't.
Eric: It caused a lot of anxiety, and so, for the sake of our families, she and I decided to stop seeing each other.
Steffy: It stopped because Quinn's plan failed.
Eric: There was no plan.
Steffy: She targeted you.
Eric: She's not targeting me! I did not want to get into this. I know who she is. I know what she's done. And I know that she's changed.
Steffy: Okay, this isn't about me. This could undermine the company and our family. It's already affecting my marriage. She's a manipulator. She came here in disguise. She followed you to Monte Carlo. Are you honestly gonna tell me that she's not targeting you?
Ridge: I got to ask you, dad -- was this just in Monte Carlo or here, too?
Eric: That is none of your business, Ridge.
Pam: I still can't believe she was Vladimir Smirnoff!
Rick: What -- what happened in Monte Carlo?
Eric: I don't want to talk about this. I don't want to get into it.
Thomas: Granddad, we're just worried about you. That's it.
Steffy: She's dangerous. And we have no idea what she's after.
Eric: She's not after anything.
Pam: Yet she is. She asked for her job back.
Steffy: Yeah, that's how it started, but she did it to get to you.
Eric: She came to me because she respected my position in this company. She's been very supportive. She helped me realize how much I wanted to run Forrester again.
Ridge: Yeah. She got in your ear, Dad.
Eric: She encouraged me to follow my instincts, Ridge -- instincts that have run this company for a very, very long time.
Thomas: Yeah, but why would she do that? What -- what's her angle in all of this?
Eric: Oh, of course she has to have an angle! A woman like that wouldn't possibly be interested in me without having some kind of an angle. Is that right?
Pam: Quinn is a whackadoo!
Ridge: She has an agenda. How do you not see that, dad? She wants to get into Steffy's life and back into this company!
Eric: All right. All right, everybody. All right. I've heard your apprehensions. Now, this is a business meeting. Let's get back to it. I'll handle Quinn.
Ridge: Oh, no. We're not gonna allow that.
Eric: You're not gonna allow that?
Steffy: No. You have to stay far away from her.
Eric: Look, I realize -- I realize this has a very deep impact on your marriage. But this is my life.
Ridge: It is your life, but it's more than that. You're lonely, and you're vulnerable.
Eric: I'm not a child. I'm not a child here! I'm the C.E.O. of this company! And I will not have my private life pulled apart or judged in this office! This meeting's adjourned.
Quinn: Look, maybe if we all just sit down together --
Wyatt: I need you to start packing.
Wyatt: Right now. You know what? I'll help you. I will even buy you a ticket if you have to. I'll do whatever you want, because you know what? I just -- I can't -- I can't take it anymore. I can't talk about this anymore.
Quinn: Look... I understand why you're worried and how painful and frustrating this is, but what your wife is expecting of me is not --
Wyatt: Have you contacted him? Is that why you're fighting me on this right now?
Wyatt: Have you talked to Eric since you got back from Monte Carlo?
Quinn: No. I haven't spoken to him.
Rick: You guys, we got to get control of this.
Steffy: Wyatt is doing his part. He's not gonna allow his mom to worm her way into our family.
Thomas: Granddad said he stopped seeing her.
Rick: Okay. Wait, wait, wait. What if Quinn's got other plans?
Ridge: She might. We have to be prepared for that. I'm working on a little something in case it evolves.
Rick: Well, if you've got some ideas, brother, why don't you spit it out?
Ridge: I'm not ready for that yet.
Steffy: Then what do we do? It's obvious he doesn't feel the same way as we do.
Thomas: He wouldn't keep seeing her.
Rick: Dad was pretty upset when he left. He felt we were condescending to him.
Steffy: We're protecting him. We might need a private investigator -- track his cell phone.
Thomas: Seriously? You want to have him followed?
Steffy: I want to know where he went. I'm gonna check with pam.
Steffy: Hey. Can you check with Charlie and see if my grandfather's in the building?
Pam: Yeah, I...don't think he is. You don't think he went to see Quinn, do you?
Liam: You have to come back to me. And I'm not taking no for an answer.
Liam: Hi. Everything going on with Quinn, I just...wanted to know you're okay.
Quinn: [Sighs] You said it was over, Eric. Why are you sending me this?
[Knock on door]
Quinn: Eric. What are you doing here?
Rick: You guys knew about this?!
Thomas: Steffy called me from Monte Carlo.
Ridge: She saw Quinn and dad together.
Rick: But what if she hadn't? Is that the reason? Is that -- because dad got caught -- is that why he broke it off? How long was this gonna be a secret, guys?!
Thomas: It's out! Quinn's out of the picture. That's it.
Rick: But don't you think dad's being a little bit naive?
Ridge: He's always been naive about women.
Rick: Well, haven't we all? He's had time to outgrow that, Ridge.
Ridge: Well, maybe he hasn't.
Rick: Well, he listened to us. He wasn't happy about it. But I think we got through to him.
Ridge: It's Quinn Fuller. Anything is possible.
Thomas: I completely agree.
Rick: We can't let her get anywhere near dad or the company. He's a compassionate guy. He gives people second chances. I mean, look how many chances he's given you, Ridge.
Ridge: And you, Rick.
Rick: Quinn is a manipulator. She's looking for a weak spot in his armor. We can't ever let her get that close to dad ever again.
Eric: May I come in?
Quinn: Yes, of course.
Eric: Quinn, I didn't mean for my coming over here to upset you.
Quinn: Seeing you doesn't upset me, Eric.
Eric: What is it, then?
Quinn: Oh, my son was over here -- scolded me like I was a child.
Eric: I had a bit of that myself -- Ridge, Rick, my grandkids. Even Pam chimed in.
Quinn: I'm sorry.
Eric: As if I couldn't take care of myself, live my own life, make my own decisions. I took charge over there. I'm in -- I'm in charge of my company again, and that's because of you. I told them that.
Quinn: It's good to see you, Eric. I've missed you. [Sighs] You know, you -- you -- you broke things off with me in Monte Carlo, and then you sent me that picture, and now you're here. Look, I'm confused. I want to respect your wishes, but... what does this mean?
Liam: I'm worried about you, Steffy.
Steffy: Wyatt is dealing with Quinn.
Liam: Yeah, and he's said that before how many times? It doesn't make a difference.
Steffy: He knows how I feel about her.
Liam: She's his mom, Steffy.
Steffy: And I'm his wife.
Liam: Yeah, but that doesn't change what she does or what she's capable of. In fact, your relationship with Wyatt makes her more dangerous to you.
Steffy: No, my grandfather's the one who needs to be protected.
Liam: No, you need to be protected. If she can sink her claws into him, just think --
Steffy: No, she won't. She won't. My family's gonna make sure that doesn't happen. [Sighs]
Liam: What do you think I'm doing right now? I'm trying to help you.
Steffy: I know. I know. I -- I know you're trying to help me.
Liam: I mean, I can see the toll this is taking on you, and it doesn't have to be this way.
Steffy: It won't be like this forever.
Liam: Yeah. Okay. All right. You can keep telling yourself that -- "things are gonna get better" -- but Quinn is Quinn. You can't have her in your life. It's just too much. It's too much stress. Your family shouldn't have to deal with this. You deserve better.
Quinn: Just tell me. Don't string me along. It's the one thing I can't take. Is it over?
Eric: It's just beginning.
Liam: It doesn't have to be this way.
