Episode # 7486 ~ Brooke & Ridge select a perfect date for their nuptials, as well as the perfect scenario; Wyatt points out to Steffy how his love for her greatly differs from Liam's.
Provided By SuzanneRidge: [Exhales sharply]
Brooke: I'm feeling Stephanie's presence.
Ridge: Well, you're wearing her ring. Your ring now.
Brooke: As I recall, she was also wearing a wedding band.
Ridge: She was, and you'll have one, too.
Ridge: You -- you want to set a wedding date?
Brooke: You do have one in mind, don't you?
Ridge: Yeah, I do. What about the day we get rid of Quinn fuller?
Steffy: I'll be looking forward to your arrival, André. Give my best to your lovely wife, okay? All right. Au revoir. Pam, schedule a pick-up for André Moreau at lax. I'm gonna e-mail you over his itinerary. And let's move my 3:00 meeting to 1:30. And remind Rick again, I want to review the next quarter projections by tomorrow. Thanks very much. Bye. Now, you were saying?
Wyatt: Uh, I don't know about mom, but I -- I was just watching.
Quinn: Yeah, well, it's quite the transition. You were obviously born for this job.
Steffy: [Laughs] Thank you, Quinn. How's Granddad? Recovering from the holidays?
Quinn: Oh, he is walking on air. You made the holiday so memorable for him.
Steffy: Well, it was a lovely day. The house was decorated beautifully.
Quinn: Really? You think so? Oh. Well, that's really good to hear. I mean, Christmas is so important to your grandfather. What's important to Eric is important to me. I hope you're beginning to see that.
Wyatt: Christmas was amazing, mom. You did a great job.
Quinn: Thank you. What'd you think, Steffy?
Liam: You dropped in right in front of me.
Bill: Uh, he who hesitates. But the fact is, there was enough room on that wave for both of us.
Liam: Uh, I think that's debatable.
Bill: You think so?
Bill: All right, fine. I did take your wave. Happy?
Liam: Oh, you -- oh!
Bill: Uh, so, how's everything post-Christmas?
Liam: [Chuckles] Everything? Everything's kind of a big topic.
Bill: Well, specifically, how's it going with, uh, Steffy being C.E.O. at Forrester?
Liam: Oh. That. Well, I want her to be C.E.O. I just don't want her to be C.E.O. with Wyatt and Quinn whispering in her ear the whole time. There you go.
Bill: Risky business, son.
Liam: How's that?
Bill: Steffy hit the jackpot, and you're asking her to tear up her lottery ticket.
Liam: No, Dad, I told you. It's not even about that.
Bill: I know, I know. It's not the job, it's the people she's working with, and you are absolutely right to be concerned about Quinn. But they're kind of two separate issues.
Liam: No, but they're not two separate issues. Quinn is trying to brainwash Steffy, right? Steffy wouldn't have the title of C.E.O. if it weren't for Quinn, and Quinn's never gonna let Steffy forget that until she's convinced Quinn is some kind of, I don't know, changed woman or whatever it is. Listen, I got to go. Can you -- lock up for me, will you? Thanks.
Brooke: Well, then, I guess I just don't have to rush out and call the caterer.
Ridge: Come on. I don't -- I'm sorry.
Brooke: No, Ridge, really. It's all right. If you want to wait till Quinn is gone...
Ridge: I don't want to wait. It's not -- I -- [Groans] I just don't want this big Quinn cloud hanging over us. I just want to get rid of her.
Brooke: Okay, so how do you plan on doing that?
Ridge: I don't know. But I will do whatever it takes to get it done.
Wyatt: Okay, so our ctrs could use some enhancement, but we're still up over 20%.
Quinn: Uh, ctrs?
Nicole: Click-through rate. The percentage of people that click on an ad or a name in a news piece and end up at our website.
Wyatt: Yeah. Anyway, our ctrs are up, so is our conversion rate, and it is all about our influencer.
Nicole: That's very true. Steffy's killing it. They love her.
Wyatt: Yeah, but we've got to amp up our daily vlogs, the video stories, you know?
Wyatt: Come on in, Liam. Uh [Clears throat] You might even do some crowdsourcing. Ask her followers and her fans to shoot us some design ideas, maybe. Make them feel included.
Liam: You might want to check with your actual designer first. I'm not sure Ridge would go for that.
Wyatt: I'm not saying that we're going to use their designs, Liam. I'm just saying, like, get them to try and feel involved, closer to Steffy.
Liam: Wyatt, that is such a bad idea on so many levels.
Wyatt: Excuse me, Madame C.E.O., Madame President, this is our resident naysayer, Liam Spencer. Have you guys met yet?
Liam: Oh, you're not open to another point of view?
Steffy: Of course, we are. Let's hear it.
Liam: Okay. You're turning Steffy into clickbait.
Quinn: [Laughs] I assume that's pejorative.
Nicole: Very much so.
Liam: Yeah, uh, listen, Steffy, he's trying to use you to titillate your followers, which is a bad idea for two reasons -- one, it's demeaning to the C.E.O. of a multi-national corporation, and secondly, it's not gonna work if the end game is sales.
Nicole: Sales are already up.
Liam: I know. I know that. But that's -- I hate saying this -- but that is because of Quinn's short tenure as interim C.E.O. It's the jewelry line. It's the fashion show.
Wyatt: It's because of our branding, Liam! And, yes, my mother did an amazing job. Thank you for acknowledging that, by the way.
Wyatt: But Forrester's success is linked to our progressive, youthful, cutting-edge pipeline of products, who no one could represent better than Steffy can, so she has to be out there.
Liam: Yeah. Okay. She's the C.E.O. and you're turning her into a human emoji.
Wyatt: Oh, hey, that's not a bad idea. Maybe we do a whole line of Steffy Forrester emojis. Huh? Look into that.
Liam: Steffy, Steffy. Listen to me. Listen to me for a second. Do you want to be the laughingstock of the business community? Because if he keeps this up, you will be.
Wyatt: She is trending big-time, Liam. Or haven't you noticed?
Liam: I have noticed, Wyatt. Have you noticed the chat rooms? They're not kind.
Wyatt: Okay, look. Nicole and I are pushing forward on this, and we're talking link-building, blogging...
Nicole: Search engine optimization.
Wyatt: Everything! I want her on everyone's lips, and you can't tell me that that's gonna hurt us in any way.
Liam: It is gonna hurt you. It's gonna hurt you in the long run, and I can tell you that. Steffy's gonna get some buzz at first, and it's not gonna last, guys, because it never does. A year from now, it's gonna be "Steffy Forrester? Wait a minute, who is that? Oh, yeah, she's the one who made a fool of herself on social media." Come on! I know why you're really doing this, and the end game is not the bottom line. It's not sales. It's a marriage that -- I'm sorry, I'm sorry -- is already over.
Quinn: The divorce isn't final yet.
Liam: Do you -- let me ask you something. Do you guys really think Steffy doesn't see through this?
Wyatt: I'm just trying to grow an online community here, a fact that you don't wish to acknowledge.
Liam: Steffy, Steffy, privacy is key. Especially for someone in your position. Don't put yourself out there for media consumption. You have too much class for that. You know why? Because you're a Forrester. Would Stephanie do this? Your namesake? Would she do this?
Quinn: I think we've heard enough, Liam. We're in the middle of a meeting.
Liam: Would you like me to go?
Steffy: Let me just finish this meeting. We'll talk about this afterwards, okay?
Brooke: I don't mean to be negative, but ridding the family of Quinn has been tried over and over, and it usually ends up backfiring.
Ridge: Not this time.
Brooke: So you do have a plan.
Brooke: Oh, Ridge, I hate to see you this way.
Ridge: See me what way? I'm -- I'm in love. I'm engaged to the most beautiful woman in the world. I am happy, and it's almost -- it's almost perfect.
Brooke: You did have to put on a happy face during Christmas.
Ridge: Oh, God, I did. That was hard. Seeing her picture every time I looked up, and her picture instead of my mom's. It made my stomach turn.
Brooke: I know, you barely ate a thing.
Ridge: I couldn't keep it down, the way she was just walking my dad around like he's a puppy on a leash.
Brooke: Her motives are pretty obvious.
Ridge: Yes, they are. She wants to get Steffy and Wyatt back together. Now, my daughter is pretty smart. How does she not see that? That's why we got to get rid of Quinn.
Brooke: I know.
Ridge: I just don't know how.
Brooke: But Quinn has your father solid in her corner.
Ridge: No. She has him painted into a corner, and there's only one thing that can blow this out of the water.
Ridge: If Quinn betrays my dad.
Brooke: I don't see that happening.
Ridge: I don't, either.
Liam: Sorry. Didn't meant to interrupt.
Brooke: It's all right. I am leaving. I have an appointment to get to, so... I will see you -- mwah -- at home.
Liam: See ya. Hey.
Ridge: Hey. You look a little beat up.
Liam: Yeah, I was just in with, uh, Quinn and Wyatt and Steffy, and they're working her over with all the social media crap.
Ridge: All right. Enough said.
Liam: So it sounds like you have a "dump Quinn" campaign, is that right?
Ridge: Yeah. I just wish I had a plan.
Liam: I wish you did, too.
Ridge: Man, that woman is bizarre. She just likes having the upper hand on me.
Liam: Oh, good. What'd you do now?
Ridge: I don't know. She's just -- she's smug and flirty with me.
Liam: Did -- I'm sorry. Flirty? When was she flirty?
Ridge: When I found her naked taking a shower in the backyard.
Brooke: If you want to wait till Quinn is gone...
Ridge: I don't want to wait. It's not -- I -- [Groans] I just don't want this big Quinn cloud hanging over us. I just want to get rid of her.
Bill: Miss me?
Wyatt: Uh, well, that should do it. [Clears throat]
Nicole: We'll need a few hours later this week to shoot some stills.
Quinn: Okay, Nicole, we should give these two some time to talk things over.
Nicole: Of course. Uh, we still on for that lunch meeting?
Wyatt: Yeah. Absolutely. I'll see you in a minute. Bye. He's wrong. You know that, right?
Steffy: He's just looking out for me.
Wyatt: No, Liam is just looking out for himself, and his viewpoint on social media is absurd!
Steffy: He made some valid points.
Wyatt: About what?! His fear of losing you? His insecurities? Yeah, he made that very clear. What -- what was he even doing here, anyway?
Steffy: He loves me, Wyatt.
Wyatt: Yeah, and there's a lot of us who do. Some of us let you do your job the way you want to do it and live your life the way you want to live it. And there's some of us who pressure you into doing what they want. You're the C.E.O. Of this company, Steffy. You don't -- you don't need that. You're still determined to have the ring removed and marry my brother, huh?
Liam: She was showering in the backyard?
Ridge: She bought my dad a shower for Christmas. Who does that? Who buys a shower for Christmas unless you're really dirty and you got to wash something off?
Liam: But she was naked.
Ridge: Yeah. I walked through the yard because I tried to get to the house.
Liam: Oh, that must have freaked her out.
Ridge: On the contrary.
Quinn: You don't like what you see? I mean, come on, Ridge, your lurking got you to see me in the buff. Aren't you excited for your dad, what he gets to come home to every night?
Liam: Oh. Hence the flirting.
Ridge: Yes, flirting, or messing with my head. Whatever you want to call it.
Liam: See, this -- this is weird. This is really weird.
Ridge: It's not weird. It's Quinn!
Liam: No, but it's weird 'cause it's in your dad's backyard.
Liam: I mean, what did you do?
Ridge: What did I do? I tried not to look at her. In a way, she was getting off on it.
Liam: You know what this means?
Ridge: I do. That woman has no shame.
Liam: No, no, no, no. She's married to your father, and she's flirting with his son.
Quinn: Hello. Mr. Doom and Mr. Gloom. You missed a really good meeting. You would have been proud of your daughter. So, did I -- did I interrupt some kind of pout-fest? 'Cause you're so cute when you pout.
Ridge: Oh, yes, I am. You enjoy this, don't you? Rubbing it in, what you did to my family and to this company.
Quinn: [Scoffs] Well, as awful as you've been to me, I do enjoy seeing you sweat, so, yes, it gives me pleasure.
Ridge: Perverse pleasure.
Quinn: Well, you would know all about that, wouldn't you? Ridge Forrester -- god's gift to women, Mr. Irresistible. Has any female ever been able to put you in your place the way I have?
Wyatt: It's never completely going to go away. It's kind of like me.
Steffy: Enough visits from the doctor, and...
Wyatt: You think that'll get rid of me? Come on, he'd have to be a witch doctor or something...
Steffy: Hey, I'm -- I'm talking about this, not you.
Wyatt: No, no, no. Let's talk about me here for a second.
Steffy: Oh, your favorite subject.
Wyatt: No, no, no, you're my favorite subject, I'm your favorite predicate.
Steffy: Nice. A man who knows his grammar.
Wyatt: A predicate's a verb. It makes things move.
Steffy: Just like you.
Wyatt: I got you to the altar, didn't I?
Steffy: Well, your mom had something to do with it.
Wyatt: Oh, come on. Maybe she did, maybe she didn't, but it still didn't take away from the moment, Steffy. The beach, the sunshine, and the wind in your hair.
Steffy: I trust you that your commitment is forever. [Voice breaking] Because my commitment is forever, too.
Wyatt: I will always be honest with you and I will always, always put you before anyone else. My commitment to you is forever.
Wyatt: You promised to share a life with me. And I still believe in that promise, Steffy.
Quinn: Word of advice?
Quinn: Tell Liam to back off. He's distracting your daughter from her very important job.
Ridge: The job I was supposed to have, you mean.
Quinn: That one exactly.
Ridge: Well, it's part of the gig. I think Steffy's gonna be fine.
Quinn: Can you just look at me when you talk to me? What are you working on? Wow. That is a beautiful gown. You really do know how to flatter a woman's body. Wait, is that -- is that the piece that I just designed? Wow. I mean, it really -- it really flatters the dress.
Ridge: Yep. Sadly, it does.
Quinn: You don't have to be so negative.
Ridge: You know what? You're right, I'm gonna try to be more positive. You are positively the worst person I have ever met, but you're a really good designer.
Quinn: Okay. Guess that's a start.
Ridge: Okay. Now, can I finish, please?
Quinn: You know, you really should show me a little bit of gratitude.
Ridge: Gratitude for what?
Quinn: For naming your daughter C.E.O. Well, I mean, I didn't name her that, your father did.
Ridge: Yeah, no, you had nothing to do with it.
Quinn: Just a little bit.
Ridge: See, this is it. [Sighs] Women. The reason I was put on this planet. I get that from my old man. And I can almost see why he's bewitched by you, because you --
Ridge: [Groans] You're the most evil person I've ever met, but there is something undeniably sexy about you.
Quinn: Did you just call me sexy?
Ridge: What? No. No, no. I said I could see why my dad would think that you're sexy. I think you're awful.
Brooke: How did you get in here?
Bill: I walked in.
Brooke: So, what are you doing here?
Bill: Well, I didn't come here to see that poser, I can tell you that.
Brooke: He's at work.
Bill: I know.
Brooke: What do you want, Bill?
Bill: You. And I will have you. Someday, you will be my wife. You're not married yet. Don't do it, Brooke. Ridge will stray. He always does. I never will. I will be here waiting for you. And we will have our future together. Finally.
