Carter: Hey, we should plan something, you and brooke, zoe and me.

Ridge: You know, like what?

Carter: Uh, dinner, il giardino?

Ridge: Yup. Sure. I think brooke would love that. Let's put a date on the calendar.

Carter: Yeah, um, speaking of dates, uh, I'm hoping zoe will pick one soon for our wedding. I wanna marry her, like, yesterday.

Ridge: You really love that girl, don't you?

Carter: Yeah, yeah. She's it for me.

Ridge: It's great when you're able to say that.

Carter: Uh-hmm, certainly is.

Ridge: And were sure that this feeling is mutual, right?

Zoe: Look, zende. Okay. It's right here. The text that you sent me the first night that I spent with carter!

Zende: But how?

Zoe: I don't know! It--it--it just dropped! But you wanted to stop me! You didn't want me to commit to carter because you have the same feelings for me that I have for you. And you can't deny it anymore. Hey, I have the proof right here. Look, it's not too late for us, zende. I'm not married yet.

Bill: Where do we stand on that deal with the anchor for the portland station?

Wyatt: Justin is reviewing the contract, as we speak.

Bill: Okay. Well, I know you love the guy. So, don't give away the farm.

Wyatt: Would I do that? I've learned my lesson many a time around here.

Bill: Yeah. Well, one can only hope. At least you're here. I mean, that's more that I could say about your brother. Where the hell is liam, anyway?

Wyatt: Okay. Dad, he's--he's got a lot on his plate right now. So, you kind of have to give some slack. And what's this attitude? I've been dealing with this all week. What's wrong with you? What's your problem? You know what? I know what it is.

Bill: Oh, oh.

Wyatt: I--I do.

Bill: Oh, it's my favorite thing. I'm so excited. The manager is like a grape, tells me about myself.

Wyatt: You're welcome.& You miss katie, don't you?

Katie: Hi.

Wyatt: Oh, perfect timing.

Katie: Uh, okay if I come in? I'm not interrupting anything, am I?

Bill: Oh, no, no. Of course, you can come in. I can't tell you how incredible it is to see your gorgeous face.

Katie: Oh.

Katie: I'm not interrupting anything in importance?

Bill: No, no. I'm just talking to wyatt.

Wyatt: Yeah.

Bill: I--I--I mean, there is nothing more important than you are. You are always welcomed to interrupt.

Wyatt: And more often, because you, you have a calming effect on this rhinoceros here.

Katie: Oh, he's been terrorizing the staff, huh?

Bill: No, not at all.

Wyatt: Hmm.

Katie: Well, I was out shopping and I found this game. Uh, it's about entrepreneurship and the economy. And I figured you and will would have a fun time picking apart everything they got wrong the next time you're together.

Bill: Well, that's really thoughtful. Thank you.

Katie: Okay. I'm gonna go.

Wyatt: No. Don'T. Please. I'm begging you for the sake of everyone who works at this company. You make him nicer. So, you should stay forever

[Clears throat] If you want.

Ridge: Honestly, when i heard that you got engaged, I--I was a little surprised. You and zoe were friends. Next thing I know, you're living together.

Carter: So, it feels rushed?

Ridge: It does.

Carter: Well, I--I can see how it appears that way. But I've been into zoe as soon as she came to town. And I didn't pursue it or--or talk about my attraction. I didn't think anything beyond friendship was possible. But then I don't know, man, our connection, it just--it just grew. And then I--I made my move. And then I proposed and she said yes. So, I would say it's mutual, ridge.

Ridge: But there's still no wedding date?

Carter: Well, don't look at me. I'm full speed ahead, except for one loose end. I kind of need a best man and i was hoping my best friend will fill the role.

Ridge: Listen, I'd be honored. I--I will do anything that you need. I got your back.

Carter: Thank you, man.

Ridge: Okay. Actually, I'd be upset if you asked anybody else.

Carter: See? We're all set. Now, if zoe could just pick a date--hey, paris. Come on in.

Paris: Zoe won't pick a date?

Carter: No, no. It's not that she--she won'T. She just hasn't yet.

Zende: Admit it, zende. Okay. You sent me this text for a reason. You didn't want me to spend the night with carter. And I asked you if I should be with him, but you didn't say anything. So, I--I left. And then at some point, you sent me this text. You wanted to see if there was a chance between us, see what we could be together.

Zende: All right. Yes, yes, yes, yes! I wanted to see if--if we had something. I wanted there to be a chance. But the text didn't go through. And now it's too late.

Zoe: No. That's my point, okay? No, it's not! Of course you've seen underwear that fits like this...

Bill: Please sit, katie. You look particularly stunning today.

Katie: Okay. Um, I'm trying to nail down what's going on here.

Bill: Nothing. You just underestimate my commitment. That's all.

Wyatt: Hmm, hmm, hmm.

Bill: Wyatt, don't you have some place to go, some work to do? If not, I'll create some janitorial duties for you.

Wyatt: Subtle and effective. I do have somewhere to go. Thank you very much.

Bill: Maybe get a new suit.

Wyatt: Well, it's called fashion. Katie, thank you for coming by. We need more of that.

[ Door slams ]

Bill: I don't wanna pressure you. I don't wanna put you on the spot. But I mean it when I say that it is wonderful just to be alone in the same room with you. Katie, I--I miss your presence. I--I miss your--your warmth. I miss your humor. There's a couple other things I miss as well. So, yeah, I mean, maybe it's true. Maybe I have been, uh, a little bit difficult to be around, irritable, and impatient, uh, more so than usual. But that's because I--i need that calming effect that you have on me. And--and i know--I know I have nobody to blame but myself. I am painfully aware of that.

Katie: Well, awareness is good.

Bill: Okay. All right. I'll--I'll take that. That's a point in my column.

Carter: I'll let you both know the date as soon as zoe picks one.

Ridge: Okay. See that? That was an exceptional man walking out of the office.

Paris: Yeah, carter is a good guy.

Ridge: He is. Your sister is very lucky. He's honest. He is genuine. He's committed.

Paris: You obviously think very highly of carter.

Ridge: The dude is my best friend. Nothing I wouldn't do for him. You understand that, right?

Paris: Yeah. Sure.

Ridge: Let me ask you something and you should be honest with me. This relationship between carter and zoe, somebody should be concerned about?

Zoe: It's not too late for us, zende, and I refuse to accept that.

Zende: What are you even saying? You are engaged to my good friend.

Zoe: And we still have feelings for each other.

Zende: It doesn't matter. Maybe it's fate. Maybe you're supposed to be with carter.

Zoe: Or maybe it's the other way around. What if I'm meant to be with you?

Zende: No. This, you and me, it's not going to happen.

If you have postmenopausal


Katie: I think we're waiting into dangerous territory here. I mean, I really just came by to--

Bill: To tell you miss me?

Katie: [ Laughs ]

Bill: Okay. Well, I can tell you that I miss you.

Katie: I think you have, uh, twice now.

Bill: And I'll tell you a third time, a fourth time, a fifth time, as many times as it takes until I hit the one that's the charm because I miss you. I miss everything about you, katie. I miss the way you--you surprise me on an ordinary day. I--I miss us putting will to bed together, and then cuddling up on the couch and watching a movie or--or not watching a movie. I miss just catching up with you. All the things, big and small that add up to being a family, I miss my family. I miss being at home with you and will. And I know that it's my fault. I know that I--I was thoughtless, and selfish, and I hurt you. I am so sorry.

Katie: I believe you. You're always sorry. And i always forgive you because that's what I do. But then it happens again. I mean, what--what's the definition of insanity?

Bill: Me--me--me hurting you in the first place, doing anything to compromise our relationship. This is the longest we've ever been apart and I hate every minute of it. I used to think that I didn't need anyone. I was wrong. I need you, katie.

Paris: I don't know what you mean by concern.

Ridge: Zoe is engaged to carter. That's where her focus should be, the same way that his focus is on her.

Paris: I mean you know how some people burn hotter than others? And that's zoe. She attracts attention and she--and she likes it.

Ridge: I don't know what that means.

Paris: What I mean by that is that, you know, she may come across as a free spirit and that makes her seem frivolous, but she's not. If she says that she is committed to carter and that that's the man she wants to marry, then she's being real.

Ridge: Well, thank you for the insight. I don't--I don't see her as this happily committed fiancee, though. I don'T.

Paris: Why are you asking these questions?

Ridge: Because I see the way she looks at zende.

Paris: They are good friends. And I know for a fact that zoe is excited to marry carter. She loves him. So, no need to have concern there. But I do have to go. I have a meeting to get to.

Zoe: I mean, how are we supposed to know if we're meant to be together if we don't explore what's obviously in front of us?

Zende: You are engaged. You've made your choice.

Zoe: Yeah. But before I knew that you had feelings for me, too. And god, I--I can't believe I didn't get this damn text. It could have changed everything.

Zende: Maybe this is the way it's supposed to work out. Just think of it that way because I cannot betray carter. He is my friend.

Zoe: I know. Okay. Carter, he is a wonderful man. And we could have a wonderful life together, a home, a family, everything that I've craved my entire life. Oh, it's all there ready for the taking, my future if I would just walk into it. But how can I when there's you?

Zende: You have to drop this.

Zoe: And what if I did? What if I dropped this, our only shot at being together? You know, what if my future is meant to be with you and-- and not carter? You're really willing to just let all that go?

Zende: Zoe, you are beautiful and charming. It's grace and elegance personified and you inspire me. I would have loved a different outcome. But you're engaged and carter loves you like crazy. Focus on that, on him, on the life that you say you want. Timing is everything in life and... ours is just off. I'm sorry to say this, but that's the way it is.

Paris: So, carter isn't enough for you? You have to have zende, too? I'm frankie thompson. The best dressed assistant

Ridge: Zende, you got a minute?

Zende: What's up, boss?

Ridge: I wanna talk to you about something.

Zende: Let me guess. It's about my latest design?

Ridge: No, not about your design. We'll talk about zoe.

Paris: Really, zoe, you and zende?

Zoe: I don't know what you're talking about.

Paris: Come on, zoe. You're not sure about carter until you see what you could have with zende? Are you--are you being for real right now?

Zoe: Please stop, paris. You need to mind your own business. A matter of fact, stay out of zende'S.

Paris: Wow. Wow. Your engaged-to-carter-self is seriously ordering me to stay away from zende?

Zoe: I am. And I actually expect you to listen this time.

Paris: Carter is an amazing guy and he's not enough for you? You have to have zende, too? I mean, what is wrong with you? Don't you realize what a dangerous game you're playing?

Zoe: I told you, paris. This is not your business.

Paris: You're my sister, zoe. And if I have to protect you from your worst instincts, then I guess that's just what I'm gonna have to do. I mean, what are you stringing carter along? Oh, my god. He's going around here talking about wedding dates and how he's so excited to marry you.

Zoe: Don't you dare judge me.

Paris: You go home to him every night and then you come here and you flirt with zende. I thought it was playful, but you're serious. Zoe, you have so much to lose. Carter is ridge's best friend. You keep going down this road and it's going to end in disaster.

Zoe: Disaster? Or maybe it ends with me being with a man I'm actually meant to be with?

Bill: I know I screwed up, again. And I can't tell you how sorry I am. And I know that I've said that before and you have no particular reason to believe me this time. But it's the truth and that's all I got. I can't erase the past. I--I can't--I can't erase the fact that I hurt you. But I can make up for it going forward if you'll let me.

Katie: I just don't know if I'm ready for that.

Bill: You said you needed time apart, that you needed space so you could heal, right?

Katie: Yes.

Bill: And I gave that to you. I didn't wanna pressure you, then. I--I don't wanna pressure you now. But I can't just sit back and let this incredible life that we have created fall away. You mean too much to me, katie. All the things that you bring to my life, your, your smile, and your warmth, and--and that softness in your eyes when you look at me. I miss the way you fit in my arms. I want you back.

Katie: I never meant for us to be apart. I mean, I thought we were good. We were--we were-- we were better than ever. And then-- and then you kissed my sister. And that was devastating, and I--I was supposed to be the woman that you were in love with.

Bill: You--you were the woman I was in love with. You--you are the woman that I'm in love with.

Katie: But you hurt me. You break my heart. And--and you know what? I deserve better than that. I deserve a man who loves me and only me, who's true to me, who--who keeps his commitments. And--and you know what? I deserve a man, even more importantly maybe who-- who sets an example for our son, who shows our child how you're supposed treat a woman with love, and honor, and respect.

Bill: I can be that man. I can be that man for you and for will. But, katie, this isn't just about restoring our family. This is about you. This is about this beautiful woman that is standing before me that I love with all my heart. I miss you. I need you. Let me come home.
