Zoe: wait. No. No. I'm not letting you blow me off, okay? I'm not giving up on us that easily.

Carter: You pretty much already did.

Zoe: No. It's not true. So let me prove that to you. Let me show you how much I love you. That I never stopped. Carter, give me one chance, okay, to reconnect us, get our future back on track. Please, carter. Can you give me that?

Brooke: I am so impressed with zende's work. He's really coming into his own as a designer.

Ridge: There's a lot of talent there and also a lot left to learn. You look amazing, by the way. As always.

Brooke: Might have something to do with the beholder.

Ridge: No. Perfection is perfection. Nothing to do with beholder.

Brooke: You seem distracted.

Ridge: I'm just worried about carter.

Brooke: You said that he might be forgiving zoe. Is that what's happening?

Ridge: I don't know. I don't think he knows either.

Brooke: You want my opinion? He should proceed with caution.

Ridge: You know something I don't?

Paris: When I was at college, zoe would tell me about her glamorous life in la, about this house and how breathtakingly beautiful it is. I thought I could imagine it but I didn't even come close.

Zende: Yeah, the house is definitely big. No question. And it can seem intimidating at first, but it's really not. For me, it's, you know-- it's home.

Paris: Well, this is quite the surprise, you bringing me here.

Zende: You hang around me long enough, you'll realize surprises are my specialty.

Paris: Well, it's a good thing I'm a fan.

Zende: Of me or surprises?

Paris: Let's say both.

Zende: I'll take it.

Paris: If I lived here, I'd park myself on that balcony and do nothing but stare at that view for the rest of my life, and I wouldn't even be mad about it.

Zende: I'm liking the view from the living room.

Paris: Okay. Have you always been such a flirt?

Zende: What can I say? You inspire me. Seriously though. You're so exciting and beautiful. I can't stop thinking about you.

Brooke: I have to admit, zoe does puzzle me. It's hard to get a read on her sometimes.

Ridge: You don't trust her?

Brooke: That beth situation still lives on in my mind. And then this whole thing with zende. I mean, what's that all about?

Ridge: I don't know. But whatever happened between zoe and zende or didn't happen between them, carter's trust in zoe took a major hit.

Brooke: It's sad, actually. He was excited to be with her. Any woman would be lucky to have him, and they would know it. Really, I don't know why she wanted to sabotage their relationship like that.

Carter: We're broken, zoe.

Zoe: I know. I know. And that's why it's up to me to put us back together. But, carter, I-- I can't do this alone. I--I actually need you to listen to me. To really hear me. I need you to let me in so I can show you how sincere I'm being when I tell you you're the only man I want.

Carter: You said that before and you were flirting with zende the whole time. I don't get it. I-- I thought we were good together.

Zoe: Carter, we are. We are--we're the best.

Carter: Then why did you throw it away? Why did you take my love and commitment and toss it back in my face?

Whitney and jane are

always sharing tips

Zende: This okay?

Paris: Yeah. We're good.

Zende: Okay. I hope you're hungry.

Paris: Oh, get out. You cook too?

Zende: I definitely have some skills, but that's for another time.

Paris: All right. No worries. So what, you ordered pizza?

Zende: [ Chuckles ] No. I got a caterer.

Paris: [ Chuckles ] Seriously?

Zende: I took the liberty of designing the menu. I ordered a lot of stuff just in case there's something you don't like.

Paris: Wow. Very thorough and thoughtful.

Zende: I want you to have a fun.

Paris: Already done.

[ Chuckles ]

Zende: You are so pretty.

Paris: Stop.

Zende: Seriously. You walk into a room, conversations stop, heads turn, you light it up. It's inspiring.

Paris: Thank you.

Zende: I hope you don't think I'm presumptuous-- wait for the but.

Paris: [ Laughs ]

Zende: You--you look great. You have your own unique style.

Paris: Thanks.

Zende: I kind of went ahead and designed a dress for you.

Paris: Me?

Zende: Yeah. I told you I was inspired.

Paris: You--okay. Wait. Back up. You--you designed a dress just for me?

Zende: It's hanging upstairs. You wanna try it on?

Paris: [ Chuckles ]

Brooke: Do you think zoe will turn to zende if things don't work out with carter?

Ridge: You know what, according to zoe, carter is the be-all and the end-all, so I'm a little confused why she would risk her relationship just for a little flirtation.

Brooke: Maybe she is afraid of the ultimate mmme.Or maybe she's just insecure and doesn't feel like she's good enough for carter.

Ridge: Maybe she isn'T.

Brooke: It's hard to forget what she did.

Ridge: Zoe asked me to talk to carter on her behalf.

Brooke: Do you think she really loves him?

Ridge: Doesn't matter what I think. It has to do with what carter thinks, and I don't think right now he believes a word coming out of her mouth.

Carter: I just-- I don't get it. I don't get it. We were magic together, unless it's something I made up in my head.

Zoe: No, of course not, carter. You--we were everything I ever dreamed of.

Carter: I felt the same. Like, other women didn't even registered in me. I only saw you. Flirting with someone, playing games, I would have never done that. And definitely not to someone you considered a friend.

Zoe: I know. I know. It was wrong on so many levels.

Carter: You know, I-- I told myself a few years ago that marriage wasn't for me and I was good with that. I was good. Some people aren't cut out for it. And the one time I was engaged, it didn't pan out and it took me a while to recover. Never want to be that vulnerable again. And then I met you. And all that caution, all that self-preservation, I threw it to the wind because I felt so much love for you. The kind you can build on. The kind that lasts. I wanted a family with you, to sleep next to you every night, to-- to take your hand and walk into the future together, to spend the rest of my life making you happy, and you threw it away like it was nothing.

Brooke: Carter hasn't been serious about any woman since maya. That's what makes it so unfortunate what's happening with zoe. I mean, a man like carter shouldn't take himself out of the running when it comes to love.

Ridge: Take himself out of the running? That's not gonna happen.

Brooke: You know, he's so lucky to have you as a friend. You're always there for him.

Ridge: He's a good man. He deserves better. He deserves a woman who only has eyes for him.

Brooke: Did you talk to him about zoe on her behalf?

Ridge: Uh, we talked about zoe, yes.

Brooke: And?

Ridge: And I don't think he's just gonna forget everything that happened and forgive her. I don't think that's-- that's a possibility.

Brooke: So what advice did you give him?

Ridge: I don't know. Slow down, take a breath. You know, put the brakes on. Look inside of yourself and see what it is that you wantin life. And see if zoe is the woman that can give that to you.

Zoe: I made a mistake, but you can't give up on us over one mistake.

Carter: I'm not giving up anything. You did. When you started throwing yourself at zende. To flirt right where we work. Did you even think how disrespectful that is to me? No. No. Of course, you didn't 'cause you were so taken up with zende. And why not? He's a forrester, right? A rock star in the fashion world. And me, I'm just a businessman. Corporate attorney. And maybe I bore you.

Zoe: No. That is absolutely not true.

Carter: Well, you're a big-time model. Maybe you thought a hot designer is a better look.

Zoe: Oh, my god. Will you stop saying that?

Carter: Then what is this? Is this you thought I was a fool? So lonely and so starved for attention you can treat me any kind of way?

Zoe: Carter, you have to believe me, okay? You are the most amazing man that I have ever met, and I would do anything to take things back to the way they used to be. I know what I did to you was wrong. I--I disrespected you. I disrespected your love for me. But, carter, I swear to you, I was never playing you. It wasn't like that.

Carter: I wish I could believe you, but from here, it looks like you were trying to trade up with zende.

Zoe: [ Sighs ]

Zende: Paris? You're not lost, are you?

Paris: I think I can find my way back.

Zende: Do you need help getting into the dress?

Paris: [ Chuckles ] Don't get asked that very often.

Zende: Wow. That is what I'm talking about. How does it feel?

Paris: Amazing. I love it.

Zende: I knew that color would look fantastic on you.

Paris: I can't believe you designed this for me.

Zende: You know what that makes you?

Paris: Blown away? Grateful.

Zende: A muse.

Paris: [ Chuckles ] Wow. I don't--I don't even know what to say. I've never been anyone's inspiration before.

Zende: Then you're long overdue.

Paris: [ Chuckles ]

[ Sighs ] It's beautiful, zende.

Zende: The dress is beautiful because you are. The caterer said we're just about ready.

Paris: Oh, well, can I-- can I help?

Zende: No. No. Absolutely not. Today, you are the lady of the manor. You will be waited on and you'll like it.

Paris: Okay then. You really know how to make me feel special. I embrace getting older.

Zende: Looks like we're all set. But, um, first... a toast. To the future? Whatever comes next.

Paris: Yes. I can't believe you went through all this trouble for me.

Zende: No, it was no trouble at all. I had fun picking out what you might like.

Paris: Well, I can't wait to see what you came up with.

Zende: No, I think I hit your favorites. We'll start with bacon-wrapped peanut butter bites. Then we'll move on to the main course, blackened quail eggs with some distressed greens.

Paris: Wow. That sounds--

Zende: Just awful?

[ Laughs ] I'm just playing with you. We have like some healthy california cuisine.

Paris: [ Chuckles ] Thank god. You--you kind of scared me.

Zende: You mind one more toast?

Paris: Not at all.

Zende: To you. The unexpected gift you are. Unlike any girl I've ever known. When I first met you, I just knew you were something special. I'm so glad that you followed an impulse to come to la and into my life. Whatever road the future takes, I hope that we can walk it together.

Ridge: No, I appreciate it. Thank you. Okay. Carter's office confirmed. He's out of the building.

Brooke: And so is zoe. Coincidence?

Ridge: Could be.

Brooke: Or, more likely, she went to carter to plead her case.

Ridge: Poor carter. It's hard to be strong in front of the woman you love.

Zoe: I own it. I was distracted by zende.

Carter: Distracted?

Zoe: Yes. That's all that it was. He was like this shiny object over there distracting me from how terrified I was. Carter, I'm sorry, but I-- I just--I didn't trust us. I didn't trust you. And I know that you're-- you're the only man in my life that actually deserves my trust. But it's the others who've made it so hard for me. Starting off with my dad. I mean, what kind of father manipulates his daughter to cover up a kidnapping? And then I-- I actually-- I was in love with xander. You know, I was ready for a future together. I believed in it. And then he just--he left. He decided he didn't want it anymore. And then, of course, there's thomas who tricks me into this so-called marriage that he didn't even intend to go through with. I mean, seriously, you have to understand why I have all these trust issues.

Carter: I'm not your father, I'm not xander, and I'm not thomas.

Zoe: I know. And that's why it's eating me up... because you are a way better man than all of them. You have this-- this silent strength and-- and confidence. This calmness in your voice. This--this love in your eyes when you look at me. And I just--I got scared. I was scared of the commitment, of it all falling apart. But I'm telling you, now I am way more scared of losing you.

Carter: I don't know. I don't--I don't know, zoe.

Zoe: I hurt you, carter. I know that, and I regret it so much because I love you. I was just--I was afraid to commit to you before. I was afraid that it was all just blow up in my face. But I'm--I'm not-- I'm not scared anymore of that. I--i wanna marry you. I want to have your children. I--I--I still want this-- this beautiful life and future that we've been planning together. Everything that comes from standing in front of god and the people that we love, promising our lives together. Because, carter... [ Sighs ] I--I really think that you're my person... and I promise you, I-- I will never give you another reason to ever doubt that. So please, carter, just tell me that you'll forgive me. Just say it. Because I know you can. You have so much compassion in your heart. Can you please just make a little room for me? Please. You won't be sorry, and I promise you, I will make sure of it for the rest of our lives. Carter, do not shut me out. Please. Will you give us a chance?
