R.J.: Oh, Mom, Dad, I'm sorry. I-I'm interrupting. I'll just come back.
Brooke: Oh, no! You better come in here!
R.J.: Well, um, how are you guys?
Ridge: We'll ask the questions around here. Hey.
Brooke: Why didn't you call us? I thought you were up in Ojai. You're starting your second semester.
Ridge: Is everything okay?
R.J.: I'm home. It's better than okay.
Brooke: [Sighs contentedly]
[Knock on door]
Bill: Yeah? Everything handled?
Alison: I think so.
Bill: Wh-what do you mean, you think so? I don't want you think so. I like certainty, Alison. I don't want any last-minute screw-ups.
Alison: Katie agreed to the quickie Nevada divorce. The only concern was establishing residency there, which, thanks to that hotel you bought in Vegas, Justin was able fudge Nevada residency for six weeks.
Bill: [Laughs] I knew that hotel was gonna pay off.
Alison: After that, it was just a matter of filing paperwork, waiting for the final decree.
Bill: Which we now have.
Alison: There is nothing standing in your way. You can finally make Brooke Logan your wife.
Bill: [Chuckles] [Sighs contentedly]
Wyatt: I need answers, Steffy.
Steffy: I know.
Wyatt: So then be straight with me. My mother's engagement to your granddad -- is that the final straw for our marriage? I hope to God it's not. I hope that our marriage means more to you than what my crazy mother does or doesn't do. But... if there really is no way for you to get past this, then I got to know right now. Are you and I over?
Steffy: I'm sorry. I realize this isn't fair to you.
Wyatt: I don't need an apology, Steffy. I just want to know what you're thinking.
Steffy: You already do. I made myself very clear.
Wyatt: About my mom's engagement to Eric, yeah -- her moving in with him and Forrester and all of that. I get that. I'm talking about the other part, the you-and-me part, our marriage part. You're not an indecisive person, Steffy. If you honestly can't see us working through this, then I want to know.
Steffy: No, I want to know, too. But I'm worried about my grandfather and the company. I -- [Sighs] I can't think of anything else.
Wyatt: Including your future with your own husband?
Steffy: Oh, Wyatt, I get that you're frustrated. I'm frustrated, too. But I got to think about the company right now. And I got to get that settled first.
Wyatt: Getting my mother out of there, you mean?
Steffy: Just know that I'm still your wife. Hey, we -- we may be living apart, but I'm still Mrs. Spencer. I just hope that's enough... for now.
Bill: I've secured a private island for our honeymoon. How's that for secluded? No chance of that poser tracking us down, like last time.
Alison: He'll probably be too preoccupied anyway once he gets his hands on your shares of Forrester. Haven't changed your mind?
Bill: About giving Brooke those shares as a wedding present?
Alison: Awful generous if you're considering she's gonna turn them over to Ridge.
Bill: Yeah, well, I'm not thrilled about him getting his slimy hands on my shares, but...
Bill: Uh...well, I left Brooke a voicemail earlier, and she hasn't responded yet.
Alison: Any reason why she wouldn't?
Bill: You mean like me telling Brooke that once we're married I want her to stay clear of the dressmaker, even though they share a kid together?
Brooke: Oh, R.J. I can't believe you're actually here!
R.J.: It's okay, coming home without permission?
Ridge: You don't need permission to come home, but did you tell anybody at school?
R.J.: Of course. I wouldn't take off without letting someone know.
Brooke: Why didn't you call us? We would have come to pick you up.
R.J.: Wait. You mean you and Dad, together? [Chuckles]
Ridge: How long are you staying? The new term is about to start, isn't it?
R.J.: Oh. Um, actually, I want to talk to you guys about that.
Brooke: Is there a problem with school?
R.J.: No. No, no. It's just been a long time since we were all together, and I know that's mainly because I like staying up there between terms, but...I miss you guys.
Ridge: We miss you, too.
R.J.: Enough to want me around?
Brooke: So, you want to come back here...to stay?
R.J.: Are you kidding? Seeing my mom and Dad together? I wouldn't want to be anywhere else in the world.
[Knock on door]
Wyatt: Got your text. What do you want?
Quinn: I just wanted to find out what Steffy said. Please tell me she's not ending your marriage, because I'm engaged to Eric.
Wyatt: No, she's not ending my marriage.
Quinn: Thank God.
Wyatt: Yet. That doesn't mean that she's ever gonna accept you as the next Forrester matriarch, Mom.
Quinn: Whatever. I just don't want my happiness to come at your expense.
Wyatt: That already happened. Steffy and I would be living together happily if it weren't for you and E--
Quinn: I know, I know, I know, I know, but here is the good news -- you and your wife are still talking, and she hasn't called a divorce attorney.
Wyatt: Doesn't mean she won't. But you're right. There is reason for some hope... for now, anyway.
Thomas: You were smart to leave the office early today. Tension was thicker than ever. You want to talk about it -- whatever that was I just walked in on with you and Wyatt?
Steffy: Yeah. Uh... Wyatt texted me, and he wanted to meet me here.
Steffy: I guess he's worried about the whole engagement with Grandfather and Quinn...
Steffy: ...What it's gonna mean for our marriage.
Thomas: It's the end... which I'm sure Liam thinks it should be. I'm not trying to sway you any direction. I know Wyatt's a decent guy. But I just know how you and Liam felt about each other.
Steffy: Okay. I can't -- I can't think about that right now, all right? The company is in a crisis, and my main focus is making sure that Bill and Brooke get married and that 12.5%.
Thomas: Yeah. Do we know how long it's gonna take before they say, "I do"?
Steffy: I don't know, but someone should put a fire under Bill.
Thomas: Brooke, as well. For some reason, she's dragging her feet.
Bill: I talked to you about this a week ago -- actually, nine days if you include the weekend. Yeah, I-I don't want to hear it. I don't want to hear another word about it. Just get it to me -- now!
Alison: Does Brooke know what she's getting herself into?
Bill: What do you mean, what she's getting herself into? What are you talking about? On my worst day, I'm head and shoulders above Ridge and the rest of her husbands.
Alison: Exactly how many husbands have there been?
Bill: Funny. Watch it. Besides, Ridge and the rest are all in her past. I'm her future -- one she wants. [Chuckling] Oh, it's got to be killing Forrester, knowing that is Logan is about to be all mine.
Ridge: I thought you enjoyed school in Ojai.
R.J.: I do, but I doubled up in summer school, took enough classes so I could take the fall off if I wanted.
Brooke: Wow. I didn't realize. Somebody's been planning ahead.
R.J.: Um, I don't mean to spring this on you, but if you could consider letting me move back to L.A.
Brooke: Of course, you can move back to L.A. Your father and I always want you close.
Ridge: I just think we're both a little surprised that you're even thinking that way.
R.J.: I've been thinking a lot lately -- about you and Mom, the family. And now that you're not with Caroline anymore and you don't have to share a child, it just feels like the right time, you know?
Brooke: The right time for what?
R.J.: My turn with my parents. I mean, we used to be really close, and I want to be part of that. Now that you're spending some time together... I want my family.
Quinn: Maybe things are starting to look up -- for both of us.
Wyatt: Ha! I wouldn't go that far. Steffy and I still aren't living together, and Eric's family still is against you, so...
Quinn: I'm hoping that will change.
Wyatt: It can... if you give back his engagement ring and just walk away.
Quinn: I can't do that, Wyatt. I'm in love with Eric, just like you love Steffy.
Wyatt: She still has feelings for Liam, too, remember? Or have you forgotten that he's still circling around?
Quinn: So?! Who cares?! Let him circle! He's half the man you are. Otherwise, he would have fought for Steffy while he was still married to her, just like you are...
Quinn: ...Fighting for the woman you love. She has to see that. But you can't let her dictate your marriage. You deserve to be treated better than that. Hopefully she's gonna be able to -- I don't know -- come around and accept it and move on with her life, with you.
Steffy: That's the last thing we need -- Brooke dragging her feet, especially when she knows how important those shares are to Dad.
Thomas: Exactly. But if Brooke is hesitating marrying Bill because she's second-guessing something --
Steffy: No. No. She wouldn't mess this up. She knows how important this is to us. And, plus, she loves Bill. They've been through a lot together.
Thomas: Not unlike you and Liam. You and Wyatt, in a different way. Stef... who's it gonna be?
Steffy: Thomas... I told you I am focused on what's happening at the company. Once Bill's shares are Brooke's, Quinn's not gonna be in our lives any longer.
Alison: What do you think Katie will think of your plans?
Bill: Why would I bring my ex-wife into this?
Alison: She's the mother of your child. You're marrying her sister.
Bill: She's doing very well now that our, uh, situation has been resolved. I want only the best for Katie.
Alison: There was a time when she thought that was you.
Bill: You know, in ways, Katie was better than I ever deserved. And we'll always be family, despite the unconventional circumstances. But Brooke -- Brooke is the one. And she always will be.
Ridge: I think we both realize we haven't always been the family that you needed, but, uh, my life --
R.J.: Dad, Dad, I get it, okay? I understand a lot has happened since I was last home, especially in your life.
Brooke: A lot's happened in my life, too -- things that you're not aware of.
R.J.: Really? Like what? You know what? Never mind. What matters is that you two are not in a relationship with anyone. I saw it when I walked in here. You two -- you two are still crazy about each other.
Ridge: All right. Your mother and I -- we share a long history together.
Brooke: As well as a son that we're very proud of, right?
R.J.: Then what's holding you back? I mean, you've got to know I'd be cool with it, too, if you and Dad -- what's that? No offense, but that's the ugliest ring I've ever seen.
Brooke: Uh, that's, uh... it's an engagement ring.
R.J.: Really? Y-you mean you and Dad?
Brooke: No. It's -- it's from Bill Spencer. Bill and I are engaged.
Wyatt: Yeah, don't kid yourself, Mom. We are still facing huge challenges.
Quinn: I know. But what's that saying -- love conquers all?
Wyatt: Oh, please. We're resorting to sayings?
Quinn: So many wonderful things have been happening to me lately. Who would have ever thought I would be Mrs. Eric Forrester?
Wyatt: But that doesn't mean that Steffy or the Forresters are ever going to accept you, Mom. Steffy wants you out of her granddad's life now more than ever.
Quinn: Well, unfortunately for Steffy, I'm not going anywhere, and there is nothing she can do about it.
Steffy: I realize getting Quinn out of the company won't mean she's out of granddad's life.
Thomas: One thing at a time, right?
Steffy: Mm-hmm. Brooke will marry Bill... and then Quinn will finally be stopped -- at least at Forrester Creations.
Bill: [Sighs] Some vows, a few words by the minister... Brooke and I will finally be married... something that should have happened back in Abu Dhabi.
Alison: Not that you've got a grudge against Ridge for ruining things or anything.
Bill: You know what? The hell with Forrester. What he and Brooke shared -- no comparison to what she and I have. I know you've heard this before.
Alison: Tell it again, boss.
Bill: It's always been bigger than life for Brooke and me. It's finally happening. The woman I've waited so long for is about to be my wife.
Brooke: I realize you weren't expecting this, but --
R.J.: The guy is married to Aunt Katie, Mom. I mean, they had a kid together.
Ridge: Bill and Katie aren't married anymore.
R.J.: Wait, what? When did this happen?
Brooke: Recently. But they've been having problems for a while.
R.J.: I-I-I-I can't even --
Ridge: Let your mom explain.
Brooke: [Sighs] Bill and I have had a difficult time. You know at one point we were going to get married.
R.J.: Yeah, yeah, I know, but then Bill went back to Aunt Katie. You cannot be okay with this.
Ridge: Well, it's your mom's life, and I will always love her very much, but --
R.J.: But what?! I mean, you hate the guy, Dad. The last person you'd ever want for Mom is Bill Spencer. What's really going on here?
Brooke: [Sighs] Your father and I realize that this is a lot to deal with. You just got home.
R.J.: Yeah. Yeah. I know I just got home. And I don't understand how you guys don't see what's right in front of me. You two love each other. I mean, shouldn't you be fixing our family instead of making another mistake? I can't let you do this, Mom. I can't let you marry Bill Spencer.
