Bill: So, I have a question for you. What -- what, uh, what do you think about living...

Brooke: Yeah?

Bill: There. The entire penthouse floor. I'd be working at home.

Brooke: You'd be living at work. Besides, I don't like being that far from the ground. What about earthquakes?

Bill: Ah, she'll be earthquake-proof. State-of-the-art engineering.

Brooke: And what about our garden and our pool and everything we have at home? No, thank you.

Bill: [ Sighs ]

Brooke: What?

Bill: Well, the truth is, i was, uh, eyeing her for my new office. But since we're married now, i want to offer the best of everything to you first.

Brooke: Oh. That's very sweet of you. You know that old saying. Don't count your chickens. Spectra is still standing. And maybe when they unveil their line in a few hit.

Bill: And maybe we'll be abducted by aliens. Just as likely. Tell jarrett I want to see him before he leaves for spectra's exclusive low-couture preview.

Brooke: What are you plotting? Besides world domination.

Bill: Nothing.

Shirley: You rang?

Sally: Where is saul? I called for him.

Shirley: Saul cannot be disturbed.

Sally: He picks today to be temperamental?

Shirley: [ Sighs ] Saul is in the cutting room getting things fitted and patterned for our actual showing. Darlita and I will be here to help with jarrett maxwell's preview.

Sally: Do we have this in a bolder color?

Shirley: Is there something about jarrett maxwell that said bold to you?

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Shirley: And, um, I was thinking, um, maybe thomas will show up and surprise us all.

Sally: Grams, stop. He will not be riding in to our rescue any time soon, okay? He has other obligations now.

Justin: What's the difference between slander and libel?

Jarrett: Is this really necessary? Slander is spoken defamation. Libel is in print.

Justin: Can we be sued for libel for anything injurious we publish?

Jarrett: Only if it's not true. So sally spectra might have had a case against us last time.

Bill: No, jarrett. It was a review, an opinion. It's neither true nor false. You can write anything you want to about spectra's preview. As long as it's an opinion, we're good.

Jarrett: But you want it to be a bad opinion.

Bill: Would I ever tell you what to write?

Jarrett: I take it that's a rhetorical question.

Liam: Hey, jarrett, you about ready?

Bill: Whatever it is, it'll have to wait. Jarrett's off to an exclusive spectra preview.

Liam: Uh, yeah, I know. I'm going with him.

I'm so sorry!

Sally: It's not your fault, carla. Maybe we can call it vented.

Darlita: Can we paint her skin to match the dress?

Shirley: Just take it to saul. He'll know what to do.

Sally: This may be a bigger disaster than our last preview.

Shirley: Stop it right now. That's just your nerves talking.

Darlita: Sally, the clothes are beautiful.

Sally: They're a little rough.

Darlita: Well, I'd wear them.

Shirley: Oh, now you stop it right this minute. This is the best work you have ever done! You are about to be a fashion force in this town.

Sally: Barring another sucker punch from spencer.

Bill: And what part of "exclusive" do you not understand?

Liam: I don't think sally's gonna kick me out.

Bill: You buy your clothes at graysuit.Com. You don't know anything about fashion. Jarrett's our fashion expert.

Liam: Yes, I have learned a lot being his editor.

Jarrett: He's been marvelous.

Bill: You know what? You really make a beautiful couple, but I would just like a moment alone with my son.

Liam: Ooh, sorry. No can do, dad. You know how traffic is at this hour.

Jarrett: Time's a-wasting.

Liam: That's right. But, uh, jarrett and I will keep each other honest, and sally spectra will succeed or fail on her own merits. Okay, love you! Bye!

Bill: Are you kidding me?!

[ Door closes ]

Brooke: He means well.

Bill: That's the problem!

Shirley: Oh! Give me that before you put an eye out!

[ Sighs ]

Sally: This or this?

Shirley: That one.

[ Door opens ]

Darlita: He's here.

Sally: Who? Wh--

[ Knock on door ]

Darlita: Welcome. We're so happy to see you.

Sally: Well, if it isn't the spawn of sa--

Liam: Satan? Yeah, that's cool. People often mistake my father for the prince of darkness. So, I mean, is it cool that I'm here, or...?

Shirley: It depends.

Liam: On?

Shirley: Your intentions.

Sally: Liam was just doing a follow-up on the interview, right?

Liam: Sort of.

Sally: Darlita, why don't you get our guests some champagne?

Darlita: Sure.

Liam: This is nice. Is this one of your, uh, uh, uh, one of your designs?

Sally: Yeah. Yeah, you like it? It's so light, I don't even know I'm wearing it.

Liam: Yeah. Uh... oh, look, your receptionist is warming up to jarrett.

Sally: Darlita likes everybody. Actually, to be honest with you, I think she falls in love with everybody. So just please be nice. You know what?

Liam: Hmm?

Sally: I'm thinking you're a really good guy.

Liam: Intermittently.

Sally: You're here as a witness.

Liam: Is foul play about to ensue?

Sally: Well, that's what you're here to prevent, because you can stick up to your dad, but jarrett can'T.

Liam: Well, I do believe we owe you a fairer shake than you got last time.

Sally: Want some champagne?

Liam: Oh, no. God no. No. Too early. [ Chuckles ] I, um... wow, you have kombucha.

Sally: Yes, that was thomas' drink. Can't decide whether or not to stock up again or not.

Liam: You miss him, huh?

Sally: I'm gonna go check on the models.

Liam: Yeah.

Sally: Yeah.

Bill: Be honest now.

Brooke: My opinion doesn't matter.

Bill: What are you talking about? No opinion matters more. You're very sweet, though. Most husbands don't have to ask. Their wives just come at them with both barrels.

Brooke: All right. She's tall. And it looks like she could blow over in a strong gale of wind.

Bill: Seriously? That's what you have for me?

Brooke: She's impressive, really. And I know that you love her and you want her and you are the happiest when you're building and creating and scheming.

Bill: And winning and winning.

Brooke: How about I just let you win this argument?

Bill: Is this an argument?

Brooke: We could fight about whether we're arguing or not.

Bill: [ Chuckles ] I love you. Let's disagree more often.

Brooke: I foresee a long and happy future.

Bill: Yeah.

Sally: Okay, so remember, this is not a fashion show. That will be happening in a couple of days. It's gonna be a lot more deluxe. This is just a preview for your eyes only, jarrett and guest, more of like a duo-over of the first time we met where neither of us got what we wanted. So not everything we can show you today because it's not ready, uh, including saul.

Jarrett: Uh, point of clarification?

Sally: Yeah, ask away. I know our chairs are small, but this is not school.

Jarrett: [ Chuckles ] Uh, will thomas forrester's designs be all grouped together or --

Sally: Um, there actually is no thomas forrester designs. It's 100% me in this show.

Jarrett: The partnership is completely broken up, then?

Sally: Not at all. It's like your publication announced. He's just taking a leave. He has some pressing personal business to attend to in new york. Of course, we miss him. Okay. You're on, ladies.

[ Electricity crackles ]

Bill: Why isn't jarrett texting me?

Brooke: Don't you think he's probably watching the preview?

Bill: How about liam, then?

Brooke: [ Sighs ] What will be will be.

Bill: [ Chuckles ] Oh, I love you to death, but i hate that philosophy.

Brooke: Yes, dear.

Bill: What are you doing?

Brooke: I do have a job of my own.

Bill: In my hour of need?

Brooke: [ Chuckles ] I hate to break it to you, but every hour is your hour of need.

Bill: All right, well, wait a second now. I thought women loved being needed.

Brooke: Honestly, I could take it or leave it. But I do love being adored.

Bill: Adored?

Brooke: Mm-hmm.

Bill: Okay. Don't tell anybody I did this. Here it goes.

Brooke: [ Chuckles ]

Bill: The only other time i did this was flying over fort knox, so take it in.

Brooke: All right. Yeah, I guess I could stick around for an extra 15 minutes.

Bill: 15 minutes. I'll take 15 minutes.

Brooke: [ Chuckles ]

Jarrett: This I love.

[ Electricity crackles ]

[ Music volume turns down ]

Sally: Thank you guys so much for being a great audience. We hope you enjoyed what you saw.

Liam: Yeah, I think -- can i say this? -- You got something here.

Sally: And by something, you mean...

Liam: I mean, I-I don't know if the forrester clientele would go for it, but a lot of women would.

Jarrett: I concur. And not just because he is the boss's son.

Shirley: We should have gotten more champagne!

Sally: I am so grateful you guys can see past spectra's old reputation of being a low-rent, run-down, shabby operation.

[ Electricity crackles ]

Shirley: Aah! Fire! Fire!

Liam: Sally, do you have an extinguisher?

Sally: Over there, over there!

Shirley: Do something! Oh, my god! It's burning the folders! Do something! Aah, aah, aaaah!

Jarrett: Oh, well done.

Liam: You all right?

Jarrett: Well done.

Shirley: Oh! Oh!

Sally: Well, if you're gonna have a fire, that's the kind to have.

Liam: Yeah, no kidding. Sorry -- sorry about that mess.

Sally: Yeah, thank you very much. You should have let us all broil.

[ Both chuckle ] Thank you. Thank you, liam.

Bill: Yeah, maybe there wasn't a preview. Maybe they got there and it was bupkis.

Brooke: Maybe your time is up.

Bill: Come on. I'm not good at waiting, especially alone.

Brooke: You're so good at so many things. You can afford to be bad sometimes.

Bill: You know, I want a, uh, a date night soon. How about that?

Brooke: Isn't that what we do every single night?

Bill: No, I'm talking about outdoors, table for two, white tablecloth, candles, chamber quartet serenading us, the finest bordeaux that money can buy. A wrecking ball flashing in the moonlight again and again until that spectra fashions building is nothing more than a pile of rubble.

Brooke: Do they do demolitions at night?

Bill: It'll cost me a little bit more in overtime, but what the hell.

[ Knock on door ]

Justin: Excuse me.

Brooke: Ha, see? You're not alone.

Bill: You know, he's nice looking, but it's not exactly the same thing.

Justin: Do you want me to come back?

Brooke: No.

Bill: Yes.

Brooke: No, really. I was on my way out before I was detained by this very romantic proposition. Hold that thought.

Bill: [ Whinnies ]

Brooke: Don't worry so much. Don't worry so much, okay?

Bill: Yeah, I'll try.

Brooke: I'll see you later.

Bill: I love you.

Brooke: Bye.

Justin: [ Sighs ] I see jarrett's not back. The demolition guy says he has an opening week after next.

Bill: First I need something to demolish.

Justin: You were pretty sure that that wouldn't be a problem.

Bill: It won'T. Of course it won'T.

Sally: You know what? Um, it's -- it's really fine. I'll just turn off the power overnight, and I will call an electrician in the morning, or, um, you know, the next morning or whenever I can afford it. Thank you.

Shirley: Well, gentlemen, um, overlooking the impromptu fireworks, um, I'm assuming that you approved?

Jarrett: Hard to judge from a preview when obviously you're putting your best foot forward.

Shirley: Honey, we haven't even begun to put our best foot forward.

Sally: It's true. It's true. This was just a tease. We decided to put our best stuff out for the actual fashion show.

Liam: Well, then I'd say you'll be able to pay for an electrician. Excuse me one second.

Darlita: There's still champagne left.

Jarrett: Oh, none for me, thanks.

Justin: So I should or should not file for a demolition permit? You remember what happened last time.

Bill: Thomas forrester and his trust fund happened last time. But that ship has sailed east, all the way east.

[ Cellphone rings ] Finally. What's the word?

Liam: Uh, well, the preview just ended. You're not gonna like it.

Bill: Put jarrett on.

Liam: I-I can'T. He's chumming it up with sally's grandmother. Listen, the work was good, dad. It had polish and guts and wit.

Bill: Dimwit! You can't sell wit, liam!

Liam: I'm trying to break it gently to you. Spectra fashions is not going anywhere. They're staying in business.

[ Phone clicks ] And it -- hello? Da-- son of a -- hi!

[ Sighs ]

Sally: Do I really not have to worry about your father writing another review?

Liam: I think at this point he knows he would only embarrass himself.

Sally: Well, and me.

Liam: Uh, yeah. He'S... he's not a bad guy. He just -- okay, he's a bad guy, but he'S... he's my dad, you know?

Sally: I get that.

[ Chatter ] Do you ever just love people? You know, you're in a room with people that drive you crazy all the time, and life is life, and that's all you have, and the sky is beautiful and the building is not burning down and you just love them?

Liam: Yeah, I, uh... yeah, I think I do know what that's like.

Sally: [ Chuckles ]

Justin: So we don't need the demolition permit yet.

Bill: Have I ever broken a promise to you? No. And I'm not gonna break one now. We're gonna build her exactly where I said we would and wipe spectra off the face of the earth.
