Brooke: It's a very nice thing that you're doing, sweetheart.
Hope: Well, I want her to feel part of the family, and what better way than to offer her a job working here with us?
Ridge: [ Sighs ] Any idea where she might fit in?
Hope: Well, she seemed kind of caught off guard when i suggested it, so... I mean, she might not even take it.
Ridge: Why do you think that is?
Hope: Well, flo is phoebe's birth mother, steffy is phoebe's adoptive mother. If they're both working here, it might kind of be a little awkward for flo.
Shauna: Okay, what do you think? Is it a little too much? Does it look like I'm trying too hard? I don't want to embarrass you on your first day at forrester.
Flo: Mom, it's not my first day. I don't even know if it's a good idea, to be honest.
Shauna: To work at forrester creations and be a part of all the glitz and the glam? I mean, come on!
Flo: [ Sighs ]
Shauna: Sweetie. I thought we made a pact. To put what happened to hope's baby out of our minds. We all agreed. You, me, and zoe.
Shauna: Come on. Swear with us. The three of us solemnly swear that we will forever keep this secret. No one will ever know that phoebe is hope's beth.
Xander: Hey, you. Weren't you listening to me?
Zoe: Sorry. What?
Xander: I got us tickets. It's at the end of the month. Only you've got something else on your mind. Something that's been weighing on you for a while? Please tell me what's going on. I'm worried about you.
Zoe: So, how did you score these?
Xander: Well, I have my ways.
Zoe: [ Chuckles ] You certainly do. Thank you. For always knowing what I need.
Xander: Well, not always. Not lately. Something is different with you. Something you don't feel like you can share with me. Why, zoe?
Brooke: Don't worry, honey. We'll make sure that flo doesn't feel awkward.
Ridge: Or steffy. After all, it was flo who gave this family and gave her this incredible gift.
Ridge: And I -- I want to thank her. I want to meet her, I want to thank her, but I don't want to overwhelm her. I mean, she just found out who her father was.
Brooke: Well, it is a lot to process, to find out that stormy fathered a child and that flo is a logan!
Ridge: Yeah. And phoebe is a logan, too. And all because of flo.
Flo: Mom, I get it, okay? Now that we've made this pact, I'm not supposed to look back. I'm just supposed to move forward with this next chapter of my life.
Shauna: [ Sighs ] It's literally a dream come true, baby.
Flo: Yeah, it would be, if it wasn't for this awful secret that I'm holding onto.
Shauna: Ugh, flo.
Flo: Mom, hope has no idea that her child is alive! She deserves to be reunited with her baby.
Shauna: Florence, stop! Hope's baby is loved and cared for.
Flo: [ Sighs ]
Shauna: Phoebe's happy. And you can be happy, too, if you'd stop beating yourself up and just focus on the future. You have a whole new family, honey. A family that wants you to be part of them in every way. Do you know how lucky you are? Because I do. I would have wished this family for you. A new, exciting world is about to open up for you, and you're gonna be part of it because you deserve to be. Now, go get changed into something more appropriate. We're heading down to forrester creations, and you are going to embrace your place as a logan and everything that it means.
Flo: Sighs ] Now, lashes go fully fanned.
Xander: You know how much you mean to me, right? I mean, what I had to do to get those tickets alone proves that.
Zoe: [ Chuckles ]
Xander: See? I can get a smile out of you. Even if you don't feel like smiling. But that still doesn't mean I'm not concerned.
Zoe: Don't be. I'm okay.
Xander: No. You're not. You're preoccupied. A lot of the time. Within yourself. Is it you and your dad again? I mean, you still haven't really told me how your trip to see him went, and it was quicker than i thought. Look, I tried to give you space, zoe. I haven't wanted to push, but... if you feel like you're really in over your heard about something...
Zoe: I'm not a saint, xander, and you know that better than anyone. Especially after what I put you through when you broke up with me. But somehow, in time, you forgave me. And we managed to find something really special. And I found something special here at forrester, too. Funny how life is. You know, right when you think that everything's going your way... you get thrown a major curve. And that's what happened to me.
Hope: [ Sighs ] Flo should be here by now. I hope she hasn't changed her mind.
Brooke: This really means a lot to you, doesn't it, sweetheart? Making flo feel comfortable, part of the family here at forrester.
Pam: No, donna, I said take them down to the cutting room. No. No, I didn'T. To the cut --
Shauna: O-m-g, baby! Did you see who that was?
Flo: I did, I did, but we don't need to announce it to the entire world, okay?
Shauna: Sorry. Sorry.
Flo: It's okay.
Pam: Oh! Goodbye. I'll call you later.
Pam: So good to see you. Shauna, flo, welcome back. Hope and the others are expecting you. I'll let them know you're here.
Hope: Hey, pam, any word -- hi!
Hope: Flo, you made it! Hi!
Shauna: Hi! I hope you don't mind her mom tagging along. I just can't get enough of this place. I mean, forrester creations is the epitome of glamour and sophistication, and, you know, with me being the fashion biz myself -- well, sort of. But, anyway, I'm so sorry. I'm getting carried away.
Hope: No, that's totally all right. I'm glad you came. So? Come on in. This way.
Brooke: Flo! Shauna! Wow! Great to see you again. I want to introduce you to my husband.
Shauna: Ridge forrester.
The ridge forrester. Oh, renowned fashion designer and C.E.O. I'm such a fan.
Ridge: Co-C.E.O. I'm honored.
Shauna: No, I am! I mean, to meet a real, live icon in the world of fashion? I met your father the first time I was here. I was so shocked, I couldn't believe it.
Flo: My mom works at one of the boutiques in the casinos at vegas.
Shauna: Yeah, but it's not as glamorous as it sounds. But it pays the bills. Well, barely.
Hope: Well, it sounds like you come into the world of fashion naturally.
Shauna: Oh, she does. And to learn that she's gonna be part of all of this... you know, when I think about the recent changes in my little girl's life -- learning she's a logan, an honest-to-goodness member of such a legendary family...
Hope: Flo. You okay? I didn't have to run for help.
Xander: Whatever this major curve you've been thrown is...
Zoe: Okay, forget I even said that. I was being...overly dramatic.
Xander: Wait, zoe buckingham, overly dramatic?
[ Laughing ] Say it ain't so!
Zoe: Really, xander, I don't want you worrying about me. I'm a big girl. I got this.
Xander: Yeah. Whatever "this" is. You know, you never answered me before. I asked if this had something to do with you and your dad. Is reese in trouble again, and you're covering for him?
Shauna: Oh, where are my manners? Me trying to hog the spotlight!
[ Laughs ]
Ridge: Flo. Come here. Oh! I've been wanting to meet you. And not just because you're a logan, but because... of this incredible gift you gave us. I mean, little phoebe, she's amazing, and...
[ Sighs ] We're always gonna be grateful.
Shauna: You'll have to forgive my daughter, ridge. She is not great at taking compliments, especially from important people like you.
Brooke: [ Giggles ] Well, my husband's really down to earth, actually. That's something you'll find out, flo, when you start working here. But if he gives you any trouble, just know that the logan women will have your back.
Hope: Yes, she is right. The logans are a pretty tight-knit group, and we take care of our own.
Brooke: Yes, we do. Just like my brother would have done if he knew you were his sweet, lovely daughter.
Shauna: I know, I will always feel so terrible about that, depriving storm getting to know his child and... you know, I didn't realize he was her father, and when I think of how flo's life could have been...
Flo: Mom, no -- no one is blaming you.
Brooke: Oh, no, definitely not. I mean, you didn't think that I was doing that, right?
Shauna: Oh, no, no, no, no. You and hope and your darling sisters have been so welcoming to my daughter, even though she's a complete stranger, and...
Hope: Only she wasn't, really. In a way, she was already part of the family. She was phoebe's mother.
Ridge: I agree. Look at how many people you made happy. Steffy, she's got another kid to dress up and spoil, and... I have another granddaughter. That's another great-granddaughter for my dad, and it'S... what you did is amazing. Thank you.
Hope: We know that it couldn't have been an easy decision, to give up your daughter, but you see how much happiness it's brought to so many people. And, you know, we just -- we want to show our gratitude and make it clear that you are one of us by having you come here and work at forrester. Be a part of the family. Get to be with us every day. It would mean so, so much to us. Please, please. Please, let us show you how much you mean to us.
To most, he's phil
mickelson pro golfer.
Xander: Gambling again, right? Reese is in over his head, and...
Zoe: He's definitely in over his head.
Xander: And, what, he expects you to bail him out?
Zoe: [ Sighs ] Look, can we me. You and I are solid, zoe. Nothing can ever change that.
Ridge: Well, your mom is right. This is an amazing company. And if you accept a position here, which I don't even know what that would be, at the moment, or your responsibility, but we will find something. Whatever it is, it will be something that you're comfortable with, and... and I just want this to be your second home.
Hope: Yeah, and, selfishly, I'm kind of hoping that you'll be a part of the hope for the future.
Shauna: Are you serious? Hope for the future is one of my all-time favorite forrester lines.
Hope: Well, I can take her under my wing and teach her about the line and fashion and our company, and, that way, we'll get to spend time together and get to know each other even more.
Shauna: You're all so kind, that you would do this for flo. You know what, and, honey, i know you're overwhelmed. I mean, who wouldn't be? But she is so appreciative. We both are.
Ridge: Well, here's something that maybe you don't understand. Logan women have always been a huge part of forrester. And you are a logan woman. So you deserve to be here.
Brooke: I agree. And I know that donna and katie would love to have you here, too.
Hope: Um, is the reason you're hesitating -- if you are hesitating -- because you feel like this might be difficult for you?
Flo: Difficult, why?
Hope: Well, steffy's gonna be bringing the girls back from paris soon, and she'll be bringing phoebe into the office and putting her into the daycare here, and... you know, I understand if that might be difficult for you, you know, having to see her every day and be around her. It's okay. You know, we're -- we're family now. You can open up to us.
Flo: Um... it's, uh -- it's just really weird, you know? My whole life, it's just been my mom and me, and my dad was always this big mystery I didn't know anything about, and... now I have answers to questions that I never thought I'd ever have the answers to. I know that my dad was this amazing man who had this caring, loving family that is now my family, and that is something that -- that is something that makes me so happy. But, yeah, it's, um... the whole situation's difficult. It's -- it's more complicated than I could ever have imagined.
Shauna: Sweetie... your new family, they're offering you an amazing opportunity. You have to take it, baby.
Hope: Actually, she doesn'T. Flo, you need to do what you feel is best for yourself. Obviously I'm hoping that you do take the opportunity, but I -- i don't want you feel pressured. You know, we're just grateful that you're part of the family. Like ridge said, you've already given us so much. You've given us beautiful baby phoebe. You're a good person.
Flo: I'm not so sure I'm a good person.
Hope: Well, of course you are. You made such a selfless choice, to give your daughter a wonderful life with steffy, a daughter that I've bonded with. Maybe I shouldn't be saying this to you, but... I'm also kind of worried about how I'm going to handle the girls coming back into the office. You know, I felt such a strong connection with phoebe all this time, and... gosh, when I hold her and look down at her, it's almost like I'm holding my beth. And I understand that now. It all makes sense to me. It's because we're family. So I -- I understand why this is a difficult decision for you, but it doesn't have to be. I will be here for you and i will support you and I will help you in any way that I can. I just -- I'm hoping that, you know, we can do this together. I've felt such a connection with you in the same way I did with phoebe, and it all makes sense now, so... I just -- I really hope that you'll embrace this new chapter and -- and just kind of embark on this new journey. So what do you say? Please, flo. Will you come work with me here at forrester creations?
