Quinn: Ridge called a meeting. Where is everybody?
Quinn: Is it just the two of us?
Eric: That's a rare occasion these days.
Quinn: Oh, I say we close the door and lock it, and they'll think it's been canceled.
Eric: That's a great.
Pam: Uh, too late.
Charlie: You know, uh, pammy has the exact same problem. She cannot keep her hands off of me.
[ Laughs ]
Katie: Where's ridge?
Hope: Probably building up the suspense.
Ivy: I mean, does anyone know what this meeting is about?
Eric: He just sent out an e-mail yesterday, another meeting of some kind. An announcement, I guess.
Pam: I didn't see steffy on that list.
Quinn: Uh, yeah, which is really odd. I mean, she hasn't been around much lately.
Ivy: Well, she is co-C.E.O. Maybe that's what this is about.
Eric: Well, I doubt very much that ridge is gonna fire his own daughter.
Thorne: Well, I wouldn't put it past him.
Quinn: Well, what else could it be about?
Thorne: Maybe he's announcing his retirement. He's gonna become a monk, and there's a good chance that none of us will ever see him again.
Brooke: Mm, ridge, everybody's waiting.
Ridge: I say let them wait.
Brooke: [ Giggles ] Are you sure you want to do this?
Ridge: You're asking me this right now? Really?
Brooke: Well, I -- I just think that when we tell the family, there is no turning back.
Ridge: Exactly, and you're gonna be my wife.
Brooke: Everybody's gonna be so happy, right?
Ridge: Mm-hmm. Everybody. Except maybe one or two people.
Brooke: Oh! [ Laughs ] Well, we're not gonna talk about those two people right now. You know what?
Brooke: I polished my ring last night and made it extra sparkly for our big announcement.
Ridge: It's very nice. Very good.
Ridge: It looks very nice on you.
Brooke: Oh, thank you. It's beautiful.
Brooke: It's enormous.
Brooke: But it's beautiful.
Ridge: You're beautiful. I got that one because if people see you wear it, they're gonna know that you're taken.
Brooke: Oh, yes. Am I ever.
Ridge: You have no idea.
R.J.: [ Clears throat ]
Ridge: Hey. Hi.
R.J.: Hey. Heard you wanted to see me.
Ridge: [ Clears throat ] Yeah. You, uh... your mom and I, we have a surprise for you.
Brooke: Yes! One that we think you will be very excited about.
Pam: I know, but...
Thorne: You have no idea why we've all been summoned here?
Eric: I'm as much in the dark about this as you are.
Quinn: I'm sure it's nothing bad.
Pam: Oh, of course it's not. Maybe we're all gonna get a bonus.
Thorne: [ Laughs ] Well, this is ridge e we're talking about, right?
Thorne: When has ever given any of you a bonus?
Pam: Actually, I got a bonus.
Ivy: Yeah. Me, too.
Katie: It was a welcomed surprise.
Charlie: Bonuses? He finally gave me my own parking space. Kind of far away, but I got my own nameplate.
Katie: That's very exciting, charlie.
Pam: Yeah. Should I maybe order some more coffee?
Eric: No, no, pam. Don't do that. Don't bother. Ridge will be here any minute.
Thorne: Well, it's just like him to make us wait, though, isn't it? King ridge! Everyone else be damned.
Brooke: [ Giggles ]
Ridge: You've always been our number-one fan.
R.J.: Well, you guys are my parents, and I wouldn't be here without you, so...
Brooke: And we love you so much, and we're so proud of you and the young man that you've become.
Ridge: You're a champion. You've never given up on us.
R.J.: Never will.
Brooke: Sometimes I think you're wiser than your father and me.
R.J.: You know, I've noticed that.
Ridge: Okay. Okay. All right. But you never stopped steering us together.
R.J.: Well, I see how you two are great for each other, and I'm finally glad you can wear that ring.
Brooke: Oh, me, too.
Ridge: Yeah, so, how would you feel if we told you that we're gonna get married right away? You'd be okay with that?
Brooke: Yeah. We're really excited about getting married and bringing the family back together.
R.J.: Guys, that's awesome.
Brooke: [ Laughs ] It is.
R.J.: Guys, I've always wanted you guys to come to your senses and get married, and... I'm just really happy for you guys.
Brooke: [ Sighs ]
R.J.: Anyway. Here, come here.
Brooke: Oh! Honey! Oh! I love my family.
[ Laughs ]
Ridge: You're gonna have to wear a suit.
Brooke: Well, of course.
Thorne: Dad, how much longer are we supposed to sit around and wait for ridge?
Eric: [ Sighs ]
Thorne: I have meetings all day, and I'm already late for a conference call with a potential new client.
Quinn: The group from rio?
Thorne: Yeah. How did you know?
Quinn: I think ridge met with them last week.
Eric: Look, we all have to be patient, all right? Whatever it is, ridge will let us know.
Katie: Well, it must be important for him to call all of us here.
Thorne: If it was that important, you'd think he'd be here on time.
Quinn: There he is!
Charlie: The man of the hour!
Ivy: Fashionably late.
Pam: We've all been wondering, ridge.
Ridge: Well, we had some things we had to take care of.
Eric: Well, what is it, son? I assume it's business-related.
Ridge: Sure. Yeah, sort of. Mm-hmm.
Thorne: So, are you gonna tell us, or are we gonna waste more time playing guessing games?
Katie: I heard a rumor about a merger with one of our suppliers. Is that happening?
Ridge: Merger, yes. That's an excellent word. Merger. This is -- this is about a merger. It's about, um, a union of sorts. And it's gonna be good for the company. Not just the company, but the family and our future. And everyone's gonna benefit. But, yes, I'm gonna benefit more than anybody else. Because my beautiful brooke d I, we've decided we can't wait any longer, so this merger is going forward.
Brooke: As soon as possible.
Katie: Wait, are you talking about the wedding?
Brooke: Oh, I know! We're so happy, too, my sweetie.
Hope: Congrats. Bro!
R.J.: I know, right?
Hope: Oh, my god! Did you know about this?
R.J.: They literally just told me.
Eric: Brooke, congratulations.
Brooke: Oh, thank you, eric. Thank you.
Ridge: Hey, dad.
Eric: This is great. This is cool.
Katie: I am so happy for you.
Brooke: Oh! [ Laughs ]
Brooke: We're so excited.
Pam: This is better than a bonus.
Charlie: Well, I don't know about that, but it couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
Ridge: Thank you, charlie.
Hope: You know I feel about you two. This is incredible, and I know how much this must mean to you, I mean, having mom and ridge together.
R.J.: Yeah, they've finally seen the light. Now, if you listened to me sooner...
Eric: So, what are the details?
Quinn: Yes! Where are you getting married?
Ivy: Oh, you know, sydney is beautiful this time of year.
Ridge: We, uh...
Brooke: Uh, well, things didn't work out in sydney for us, so we're gonna stay local this time.
Ridge: Yeah, we want to make sure there's as much family as possible.
Eric: Get married at the house!
Quinn: Oh! Oh, yes! Yes! I mean, I know it's your big day and, you know, you want to plan it, but I hope you would keep that in mind. We'd love to host it.
Brooke: Oh, well, thank you, quinn. That's a very nice invitation.
Ridge: Yeah, we'll consider it.
Ivy: Oh, guys, how exciting! Another forrester wedding!
Hope: I know!
[ Laughter ]
Quinn: I'm so happy for you! Oh!
[ Laughter continues ]
Brooke: I know you don't approve. And you're worried. About ridge and how he'll treat me. But I believe in him. And I believe in us. I think he's come around. I -- I trust him. I just want you to be there, at our wedding, and I want you to be happy for us.
Thorne: I'm concerned about you. You said you wanted to wait, to give yourself some time.
Brooke: I changed my mind.
Thorne: I mean, the annulment, the sudden urge to get married -- is he pressuring you?
Brooke: No. No. I've loved ridge for as long as I can remember. You know that. So why wait?
Thorne: Well... he's very lucky to be getting you. You know I'll always support you. You can always count on me. I just hope that you can count on my brother.
Charlie: Well, you can always count on pammy for lemon bars.
Pam: Only take one, ivy. And don't take the corner piece 'cause that's for eric.
Quinn: Brooke. Congratulations. May I see your ring?
Brooke: It's beautiful, isn't it?
Quinn: It's beautiful. I -- I'm just so happy that you and ridge decided to do this right away.
Brooke: Yeah. It's finally happening.
Quinn: Yeah. Oh, uh, I was just telling brooke how pleased I am for you two.
Eric: I hope you'll take us up on our offer.
Quinn: [ Gasps ]
Eric: Decide to get married at the house.
Quinn: If you do, I will take down my portrait off of the wall, and I will put up a portrait of you and ridge.
Brooke: You're joking, right?
Quinn: No, I'm serious!
Ridge: We would be honored.
Brooke: Wow. I'm -- I'm speechless.
Eric: It sounds like an offer you can't refuse.
Quinn: What do you say?
Brooke: Um... I'll tell you what, okay? If ridge and I decide we're gonna get married at your place, then I may just take you up on your offer.
Quinn: Really? I hope you consider it. Seriously. Hope and ivy, pam, charlie, and me, we'll take care of all of the details. All you two need to do is focus on each other and your lives together.
Ridge: [ Sighs ]
Brooke: It sounds tempting. What do you think?
Ridge: What do I think? I think that house means a lot to both of us, right?
Brooke: Well, then, i couldn't imagine a better place to get married.
Ridge: It's settled. Thank you, we're gonna have the wedding at your house.
Eric: Oh! Fantastic.
Quinn: Oh, that is so wonderful! We're gonna make it such a special day for you.
Brooke: Thank you both for opening your house up to us.
Eric: Our pleasure.
Ridge: Any thoughts on thorne showing up, or not?
Eric: I'm a bit worried about him.
Ridge: Well, don't worry, I'll talk to my little brother.
Brooke: And I've got to go talk to my sister. Mwah! Excuse me. Eric...
Eric: What are you talking to your sister about?
Brooke: I just want to ask her something.
Quinn: Wow. Well, it sure feels like we've come full circle.
Ridge: Yeah, well, we took a bit of a detour, but, um... I think we need to be exactly where we have to be.
Quinn: I wish you all the best. And I really hope you're gonna be as happy as eric and me.
Pam: We've got so much to do, all the things we can plan, charlie.
Charlie: I know. You think I can have one more, just for medicinal purposes?
Ivy: [ Sighs ] Is it time to get back to work already?
Hope: Ooh! Maybe we could out to lunch! If ever there was a reason to celebrate...
Katie: That sounds like fun, but I have way too much work to do.
Charlie: Yeah, yeah, I can't go, either. I made myself a pastrami on rye with a pickle.
R.J.: I'll take this.
Pam: No, you don't, you stinker! That's for the groom-to-be.
Quinn: Do you think they're gonna be okay in there?
Eric: Yeah, I hope so. I want my sons to get along. I just wish they could find a way to support one another.
Thorne: Okay, we're alone. What do you want?
Ridge: What's your problem? You come to L.A. With this big chip on your shoulder. You question my position in this company, in this family because I'm massimo's son? What are you, a tough guy all of a sudden?
Thorne: You don't like it, do you?
Ridge: I don't like it. I love it. I love who you've become. I respect it. And I don't shy away from a challenge. That's why I asked you to be here and talk to me.
Thorne: So, what, you want to challenge me now?
Ridge: Yeah, I do. I'm gonna challenge you to do something you don't want to do, be part of something you would never want to be part of.
Thorne: What's that?
Ridge: I want us to get along. I want us to work together. I know they're just words, and words are cheap, but I'm gonna -- I'm gonna show you that I mean what I say.
Thorne: Okay. How are you planning to do that?
Ridge: I'm gonna ask you a question. A simple question, and I hope say yes. Because, like it or not, we're family. We were raised by the same man. Same woman. And I'm a forrester in every way that matters. And that's why I'm asking you to serve me.
Thorne: Serve you?
Ridge: Yeah. As my best man.
Katie: Okay, so... I'm a little confused. You said that you didn't want to rush into anything. I know that you got your annulment. But I thought you wanted to wait before you got married.
Brooke: Hope is back in town, and R.J.'S wanted this forever. And we just really want to bring the family together. Ridge and I love each other. So we figure -- why wait? We just want to get our life started.
Katie: Well, okay! How soon are we talking? I mean, do I have time to buy a dress?
Brooke: [ Laughs ] Well, actually, I wanted to talk to you about something.
Katie: All right.
Brooke: You are one of the most important people in my life. You know that, right? You're my sister and my friend and my confidant. And, yes, I know we've been through so much together, some ups and some downs, and we've come through it all stronger. I mean, I really feel that. I've learned so much from you, katie, really. How you live your life, you're so full of integrity and the love for your family, and... I just love you so much. You're funny and you're witty and people love you. You light up a room when you walk into it.
Katie: I don't even know where this is coming form.
Brooke: I'm serious. I just -- [ Laughs ] I love you, and I want to ask you something. I know that I've asked a lot of you in the past, I know that, but I'm gonna ask you one more thing, okay? Please, please, just -- make my day special. Help me with my wedding day. And also, I -- I really want you to be my maid of honor. Please?
Katie: Your maid of honor?
Katie: Yes! Yes! Of course I will be your maid of honor. My gosh, you didn't even have to say all those things.
[ Laughs ] I would love to. That's awesome.
Brooke: Thank you. Thank you. That means so much to me. And I have to tell you, you know that I asked steffy first.
Katie: Yeah, absolutely, and I totally get it. You wanted to make sure that, you know, her and liam. They were trying to work things out between the two of them, but...
Brooke: I know. It just -- it didn't work out, and so she's not gonna do that. I just want you to understand about that.
Katie: Of course I do. Of course I do. I'm so honored. I'm so honored to be a part of your day. Thank you.
Brooke: I just -- there's not gonna be any hiccups this time, right?
Katie: There's not! No!
Brooke: Everything's gonna go smoothly?
Katie: It's gonna be awesome. It's gonna be amazing.
Brooke: Okay, good. Well, I can't wait, and thorne, he also gave his blessing. He's being very supportive, even though he's still worried a little bit about ridge and what he may do, but...
Katie: Yeah. Sure. Yeah. I -- I've picked up on some of that. You know, I mean, the way he's been talking about ridge lately, it doesn't surprise me that that's how he feels.
Brooke: Yeah. I expected that.
Katie: It's gonna be a magical day. I'm gonna make sure of it.
Katie: I mean... if there's a worry, and it's not a worry, thorne and ridge, they're gonna have to work things out. There's been a bit of animosity there, but... it's all gonna work out.
Brooke: Okay. Good. Thank you. Thanks.
Katie: Thank you. I love you, sissy.
Brooke: [ Sighs, laughs ]
Thorne: You want me to be your best man?
Ridge: I told you it wasn't gonna be easy.
Thorne: Well, you also said it's something I probably wouldn't want to do.
Ridge: Yeah. And I'm probably right about that.
Ridge: Am I wrong about that? I'm never wrong about anything. Look, I know you don't see much in me, but... we're family. We got to work past stuff. Say yes.
Thorne: Hm. You want me to stand up for you and brooke?
Ridge: Yeah, I didn't stutter. Yeah, that's what I asked you.
Thorne: Well, you know, for some reason, she's crazy about you. I can't figure out what it is. I mean, you've given her every reason to run for the hills, haven't you?
Ridge: Okay, a simple yes or no would be great for me right now. Come on, man. We're family. Make me proud. Be there at my wedding as my best man. Say yes.
Thorne: I appreciate you asking, but... you're serious? Okay. All right, I'll do it. I'll be your best man, big brother.
Ridge: Get out of here. Come here. [ Laughs ]
