The Bold & The Beautiful Update Tuesday 1/22/02
lays the agenda out on the table in the boardroom for the meeting that is
starting soon. She leaves and Ridge
says he thinks that everything is ready. He’s
talking to Taylor, who is also going to be at this meeting.
Yeah, she’s a board member now. What
I think is a double standard is that I know she knows nothing about that
international economic mumbo-jumbo, so why is she any higher up than Rick?
Because she’s in their key demo, or because she’s older?
fills Chuck in about Rick causing problems after Ridge cut the bedroom line.
Ridge wants Chuck to target Rick with as hard as questions as he can.
He wants to humiliate him beyond belief so he’ll never come back.
shouts “No!” a few times like any frustrated teacher would.
I always hated independent study with teachers; they can be so
frightening one on one. The fun
topic of discussion is taxes. I
know the writers “dumbed” it down, because it makes sense to me.
Basically Mass is saying that since Forrester has an international
last item to go over is corporate jet operations.
Okay it’s actually simpler than you think. If
Forrester fully owns and runs the plane they use, then if someone other than
employee rides on it and is hurt or killed in a plane crash, the company is
liable for millions and insurance won’t cover it.
Lovely. So to avoid this,
they have to eliminate the liability. They
need to establish and LLC (Limited Liability Corporation).
Another company takes over the operation of the plane, which in turn will
protect Forrester from law suits. Mass
tells Rick to ask for this at the board. Rick
realizes the meeting is about to start so he gets ready to leave.
Mass tells him to not tell anyone about what they are doing.
Rick promises not to tell and ducks out to the meeting.
After he leaves, Mass hopes this will all work out for Ridge’s sake.
Yeah he’s going to really hate you for this
Heidi comes in with a delivery for Mass from Forrester Labs. It’s a picture, but Mass won’t fill Heidi in at all. She leaves him alone and he looks at the picture. It’s a picture of Stephanie and Ridge. Mass says that one day they will all be together. He puts their picture in a frame next to his.
Brooke’s house, Bridget comes in and makes sure it’s a good time to talk.
Amber is visibly upset. She’s
worried about Rick, since he left to go meet
Amber knows Ridge did this all on purpose so he could establish supreme control. Eric is even behind him so the only one to stop him is Rick. Just then Rick checks in. Amber is relieved to hear from him. He tells her about what Mass did for him, but she is suspicious. Rick says he’ll call her after the meeting.
says that Ridge’s ascension to the throne was unexpected, but gladly received.
Stephanie and Eric say it’s what they have dreamed about since they
started the company. Although Rick
is unhappy, everyone thinks he’ll come around.
