Massimo, you shouldnt be in this building. Says Eric, as he walks in on Massimo and Ridge. Massimo asks if he poses some kind of threat. Eric says no. Massimo then asks to continue his private conversation with his son. Ridge says that anything he wants to say to him can be said in front of Dad. This cuts Massimo to the quick.
Hector is doing some paperwork at the fire station when Thomas knocks on the office door. Whats up Mr. Ramirez? He asks as he walks in. Hector says a lot and if hes not careful hes gonna put him to work. Thomas says hes just there looking for Caitlin. Hector looks puzzled. Didnt she show up? He asks. Thomas asks him what he means. Hector says she had an appointment with Thomass dad at Forrester Creations. Now Thomas looks puzzled.
Caitlin and Rick are eating big burgers at the Café Russe`. She says its soooooo good. Then she starts telling him again how great the whole lunch is. Rick asks her if shes disappointed that she didnt get to meet with the great Ridge Forrester. Caitlin says shes not, that Ridge probably wouldnt have taken her to lunch at the Café Russe`. This is way better. She says. Rick says he is going to tell his dad how impressed he is with Caitlins designs. Caitlin says shes dreamed of this since she was four years old. She says she even used to make outfits for her dolls. She mentions her mom and says it must run in the family. Rick says that she didnt even know her mom until recently. She says it must be genetic.
Eric tells Massimo that he shouldnt bother talking to Ridge because theyve heard all he has to say and all he has to offer. If Ridge wanted to be a Marone he wouldnt be here at Forrester. He says. Massimo says they were lied to and thats the reason for the distance between them. Eric says it isnt. The distance is because Ridge saw through all his promises of undying loyalty. Ridge breaks in to stop their arguing and says Look, whatever happened, is for the best. No. Says Massimo. Ridge says hes out, and he doesnt want to be a part of Massimos legacy. Massimo says that whether he wants it or not, he cannot deny who he is. Eric says thats true, thats why hes back at Forrester where he belongs. Massimo says Ridge doesnt fit in at Forrester and he never will. Eric says that Massimo gave him a chance to be a part of the Marone dynasty and that failed. Lets all move on. He says. Move on? Massimo begins. Ridge, how did you respond when we asked you to move on from Brooke and this child? That you felt in your heart and soul that he was of your own flesh and blood? The pull that you felt defied all logic and explanation because thats the way it is with fathers and sons. Its an unbreakable bond. You knew it then and you know it now.
Nick tells Brooke she shouldnt have come. Brooke says that if she waited longer it would have become awkward. This isnt awkward? Asks Nick. Brooke says it doesnt have to be if they are honest with each other. Nick jumps on those words with both feet. Lets do that! Lets do that! He says Id like that, lets be honest. Lets just lay it on the line. How do you feel? He asks her. Relieved? Thrilled? Happy? You got what you wanted didnt ya? Brooke breaks into tears again. Not exactly. She says. II never wanted to hurt you. Nick laughs. He tells her not to worry about him, he tells her to just sail off on the good ship Forrester. Brooke tells him shes not worried about him, she knows hell be alright. She says hell probably meet some woman who will make him happier than she ever did, or love him more than she ever could, and shell hate her guts. Good. Says Nick. Brooke says that if Nick had married her he would have had to live with her for the rest of his life. He says he can think of worse things. Why dont you come over to dinner some time? She says. Nick laughs, and says he doesnt think so. Brooke says then they will have to get together for lunch. Nick says hes all booked. Brooke gets frustrated and tells him that they cant pretend it never happened. Why not? Says Nick. Because it did! She says and you .. Nick interrupts her, What? Tell me what? He says. Brooke says they just need to make it work. Go home Brooke. Nick says as he roughly pushes her toward the stairs. Dont push me! Says Brooke sharply. I need you in my life! She says. Nick asks her why she keeps pushing it. Both are yelling at this point. Because Nick! I need you! If that makes me a spoiled, rotten, selfish, bitch, then thats who I am ok? I need you!
Massimo says that Ridge never gave up on his son and Massimo will never give up on Ridge. But you did. Says Eric. Massimo says he didnt. Ridge says that Eric is right, worse than that he turned his back on him. He says that the scary thing is that Massimo almost got his way. He says he was so close to walking out on Brooke, and she almost married Nick. Ridge says when he looks at Massimo thats all he sees. He asks Massimo what would have happened if he had kept on listening to him and Jackie and his mother. Massimo says he regrets ever listening to Jacqueline, he regrets their entire marriage! He says hes been going over and over it in his mind and cant understand how he missed the signs. Ridge says it wasnt that he missed it , he just had his head buried in the sand. Ridge says he tried to tell Massimo that she wasnt acting right, and that she had an agenda. She was drinking and keeping secrets. Says Massimo. Ridge explodes. And you still trusted her over me! He says. Massimo says he had no way of knowing what she had done. He thought she was having an affair and could have handled THAT easier than this. He says she is gone and out of his life, and that should tell Ridge something. Ridge says it tells him that Massimo doesnt like to be made a fool of and that he realized too late how wrong he was. Massimo says its never too late we are father and son, what more can I do? Thats what Im trying to tell you. Theres nothing more to do, I want nothing from you. Ridge says. Massimo looks hurt. And you think I have nothing to offer your children? Massimo says quietly. I didnt say that. Says Ridge. Massimo says he has a grandson hes never even seen. Ridge says to give Brooke some time and theyll have him over to dinner. Massimo says at least hes opening the door. An inch, Massimo. Says Ridge. Its not an invitation for you to bulldoze your way into my life. This will be on my terms. Massimo says thats fine and that he wont pressure Ridge. I wont have to, youll come back to your true family on your own. He says.
Hector is surprised that Thomas didnt know about Caitlins meeting with his father. Thomas cant understand why she didnt tell him about it. Hector says she probably didnt want him influencing the outcome. Thomas acknowledges he would have tried to do that. Then Thomas tells Hector about Ridge delivering Brookes baby last night, and tells him he has a new little brother. Hector is surprised and starts to say something about Nick, but Thomas stops him by telling him about the new paternity test and about Ridge being the father. Hector, although a bit speechless, manages to tell him how great that is. Thomas says he wanted to tell Caitlin because shes had to listen to him worry about it all summer. Hector takes the opportunity to ask what else they talk about. Thomas says they talk about Caitlin getting her mother back. Hector says it sounds like theyre getting pretty close. Yea. Says Thomas. Then he worries what Hector will think, and tries to tell him theyre just friends. Hector says for him to relax, that he likes Thomas, but he just doesnt want Caitlin growing up too fast. Thomas says he understands. Good, then I wont have to break both your legs. Says Hector. They laugh. Thomas asks if it would be ok if he took Caitlin on a date. Hector says he isnt sure how much time Caitlin will have this summer due to her new job. He also is concerned about the fashion industry being so concerned only with appearance and not what a person is like inside. He says thats not how she was brought up. Thomas assures him that its not like that at Forrester. He says integrity is what Forrester is all about. He promises Hector that shes in good hands.
Caitlin asks Rick what happened to his marriage. He says he thinks he just wanted too much. He wanted Amber to be something she wasnt. Caitlin says they came from two different worlds. Rick says he needed Amber to be honest, but with amber it was all an act. He says he could look Amber right in the eye and not know if she was telling the truth. With that comment they begin to look deeply into each others eyes without speaking, holding the gaze until the waiter interrupts, asking if they need anything else. Rick says no and to put the lunch on his tab. Caitlin thanks Rick again telling him how great it was. Rick says it was his pleasure. He enjoyed getting to know her better. He says he has a feeling that they will be spending a lot more time together. I hope so. Says Caitlin. Then Rick says Ridge may take a while getting back to her because he and Brooke just got back together. Caitlin is surprised and says Thomas must be so happy. Rick is surprised to hear that Caitlin knows Thomas. Caitlin says how great Thomas is, and Rick says, without thinking, that hes a great kid. Then realizing what hes said, he says Thomas isnt really a kid because hes the same age as Caitlin. Rick asks her if she and Thomas have been hanging out. She says they just talk sometimes. She starts fumbling for words and Rick helps her out by saying he thinks that is just great. Rick says its time to get back and Caitlin says she didnt mean to keep him there too long. She is obviously sorry that lunch is over.
Nick tells Brooke that she IS spoiled rotten. Thats one of the things I like best. He says. See? Says Brooke. Where else could I get that? Nick says she made her choice. But Brooke says there wasnt really any choice. Nick says if Brooke starts talking about her destiny with Ridge again hes gonna throw up. Ok then I wont. She says. I appreciate it. Nick says. Brooke asks him where they go from here. Youre asking me? Nick says. Brooke says she doesnt want to force him into anything. Yes you do. He says. Ok, yes I do. She says. She says she cant help it she misses him and it hasnt even been that long. Not for you it hasnt. He says quietly. He tells her sarcastically that it was very nice of her to come but she shouldnt be there. He says all the lets be friends crap doesnt work. Hes yelling now. People say it but they dont really mean it. He says. I do. Says Brooke. Well I dont! He yells. He says he doesnt want to be her friend, her brother-in-law, or Uncle Nick, and he thinks it sucks that she asked. Brooke gets teary eyed again. She says theres a reason why he came into her life and they got so close. She says they thought they knew what that reason was but they didnt That doesnt mean they should just walk away from each other. She takes his arm and turns him around to face her. Please tell me you wont walk away. She says. Nick says hes at a loss for words. But Ill tell you this. If I ever catch you crying over Forrester, Ill have something to say about that. She says it was sweet of him to offer. What are friends for? He says. Now look whos making me cry. She says. He waipes away a tear and tells her hes going to go to the store. As he walks out, he tells her to sit down and rest for a bit before she leaves. Thanks for stopping by. He says.
Eric has just closed the door after Massimo left. He tells Ridge that Massimo is trying to take advantage of him. Ridge says he can handle Massimo. Eric says not to let his guard down. Ridge says he wont, but if he shuts him out completely, Massimo will plot to take over the company or something. Hes lost a lot dad. Eric says he doesnt think that was much of a marriage to begin with. Ridge says not just his marriage, but his dream of what his family was going to be as well. He says he cant kick a guy when hes down. Eric says to just keep an eye on him. Ridge says he wonders what Massimo is gonna do in the long run. Ridge says hes at Forrester where he belongs and thats the way it is. Eric says it means a lot to hear him say that. Ridge says hes sorry it took so long, but sometimes he has to learn the hard way. Eric says hes just worried about this soft spot Ridge has for Massimo. Ridge says that Massimo was head over heels in love with Jackie. You mean to tell me you didnt relate to that at all? He asks Eric. Eric says he does, but what he cant understand is how the Jackie that he knew would play god with lives like that. Ridge says to just wait until he gets his hands on her, if Brooke hasnt already gotten to her.
Brooke is looking out the window as she gets ready to depart the Shady Marlin when Jackie comes down the stairs expecting to find Nick. Shes saying something about knowing Nick doesnt want to talk to her, when she looks up and sees Brooke. Nick may not want to talk to you, but I definitely have something to say. Says Brooke.
