Yvette begs off from Stephanie that she cant stay, her plane is waiting. They part with her saying that she wishes Stephanie and her family the very best. Finding that a little odd, Stephanie looks askance at Nick.
Phoebe laments to Rick that she is not a toy for him to play with. Puzzled, he says she is talking about sexy models and the Big Dipper yet he has no idea what she is talking about. She stutters that she simply wont be treated this way. He reminds her that he thinks they had a good time last night. She says she happens to know more than he thinks she does, and again he has no clue what she means. Finally he asks if she is angry with him? She reveals that she would be, hes like an irritant, a big brother, only hes not her brother ..and never mind, for last night or any other night and she scampers off. She is so embarrassed and discobumerated.
Nick reminds Stephanie that these are no longer her offices. She smirks that shes curious. How did he get Yvette over here and then end up with a disappointing meeting? Just how desperate are they? Jackie quips that she thinks she has the cat by the tails, doesnt she? But, it is her that will soon be desperate. She tells them just wait a minute. Yvette is not going to buy, neither is Lauren Fenmore and Chen for the Asian market wouldnt. Nick admits that none of them are buying. Is that what she is waiting to hear? Music to her ears. She declares that is his swan song. And, its a sweet song. The fashion business is a dirty business .cutthroat .she is surprised he hasnt seen that. As she leaves, Jackie opines that the old witch thinks they are on the ropes. Nick thinks that is exactly what they want her to think. Patience the high road they will take.
Working in his office, Rick glares at a photo of Ridge and remembers his I will kill you threat if he crosses the line with his daughter. His mother greets him and promises that he was a hit last night and thanks him for agreeing to sing. He quips its not like he had much of a choice, but hes glad he made her happy and made Phoebe happy too. But, he extols, not all his reviews were so positive. He doesnt think Ridge was too thrilled in his choice of singing partner. Brooke dismisses it, not to worry, Ridge will be fine. Rick says forgive him if he doesnt exactly believe her on that. She is stunned when he tells her what Ridge said about killing him. So if he ever turns up dead, shell know who is responsible. She remarks she thought it was very sweet how he pulled Phoebe into the duet. Why would Ridge say that? Rick says hes sorry he told her, he is sure Ridge didnt mean it and he is sure hes not in any real danger. She does tell him that Phoebe did have some trouble with one guy and she fills him in on Shane McGrath. Rick comments that he sounds like scum to him. She claims that he had a really hard life, but Phoebe thought he had potential, but that is all in the past. Rick is her son and Ridge had no right to threaten him like that. Rick says he knows a fathers prerogative, he doesnt want him around, he can move out. Brooke tells him he will do no such thing. He has every right to be in her home and his home. He warns her that he sees a house divided, but she reneges that suggestion. Okay, maybe Phoebe has a little crush on him, who wouldnt? And whats wrong with that anyway? Knowing him will only make Phoebe set her standards higher for some man she will fall in love with in the future. So she suggests they really spend some time together and get to know each other. He asks what about Ridge. She states not to worry, that they will work things out.
Ridge is surprised when Stephanie tells him that she went to Forrester Creations and good thing, she saw Yvette there. She has a feeling she was listening to a business offer from them. He declares it probably fell on deaf ears. Shes not so sure since she flew all the way from Paris. And there as something just the way Yvette looked at her. Ridge tells her she is worrying for nothing. Perhaps Yvette is just feeling guilty for coming over to even talk with the jerk. He assures her they have a deal; she has chosen them. Stephanie says again that something about their good-bye was just not right, it seemed off, like she was dodging her.
Jackie tells Nick that Stephanie is a shrewd woman, she could be onto them. He pours her a cup of coffee and proclaims that with Stephanies ego doubtful. Jackie hopes he is right because with this deal, they have locked Forrester Originals out of the European market. Does he realize what a huge blow that is? He remarks that the East Coast market is the key. They have to get to Harvey Golden. She remarks that he has turned out to be as elusive as Howard Hughes. He tells her not to worry, they are on it. The intercom beeps and the voice announces that its Rick Forrester to see him.
Ridge flirts with Brooke and calls her sexy. She reciprocates by saying if Forrester Originals is on point for the launch, perhaps they can slip away and have a chance to talk. He thinks that sounds good, what is on her mind? She asks if he really said that to Rick? Proudly he admits he did and he meant it!
Phoebe thanks her grandmother for throwing the party last night for her dad and Brooke; it was great. Stephanie thinks so too. It was a fun party and her singing with Rick was wonderful. They brought the house down. Then she asks if Phoebe really wants to be in the family business and Phoebe assures her its great, she loves it. Stephanie asks about Shane. She confesses that hes intriguing, but she doesnt think hes the one. Stephanie tells her not to worry, shell find the one just like Stephanie did with Phoebes grandfather. Phoebe is interested to hear how Stephanie knew he was the one. Did she think about him constantly? And when with him, was she all weird and silly? Stephanie admitted she was all ga-ga .weird and silly, yes. It was like just when you least expect it, it just happens.
Nick exclaims that this is an unexpected surprise, what can he do for Rick? Rick remarks that Nicks mother looks great, and hes happy to see that. And he thanks him for a good deed Nick did for a former employee at International, something he had not been able to do for her. Nick tells him he has done plenty for his employees, they sing his praises. Rick knows he kept the staff together. That says a lot about Nick and he appreciates it. He only wishes his future step-dad felt the same. He tells Nick about the death threat.
Brooke and Ridge continue to have words and he tries to make her aware that it was only an expression and he would never actually kill Rick. He was only trying to make his point clearly made. Phoebe is his very impressionable eighteen-year old daughter. And he couldnt just stand and say nothing. She comments there is a very big difference in saying nothing and actually threatening homicide. This is Rick and Phoebe their children! But he reminds her they arent children any more. She wonders if he really thinks Rick would do something inappropriate? He grumbles that he knows how guys think. He admits he knows Rick is not a bad guy .but he thinks the only thing to come from him spending time with Phoebe will be trouble. Brooke had already admitted she had a crush on Rick. She says they both think each other is cute, but what is wrong with that? He does want to know that the attraction goes both ways. She states there is NO attraction. That they are getting married and their children SHOULD spend time together. They SHOULD enjoy each others company. They cant live with death threats and ultimatums. She will not have her family run that way.
Stephanie asks Phoebe if Rick seems happy here? She answers that she hopes so. She knows he misses Paris a lot, but thats because he is a snob. Oh, shes kidding, hes not a snob at all. Actually hes a really nice guy as brothers go. Stephanie tells her that hes mad at her and Ridge for what happened to the company, but Phoebe corrects her that it was Nick who stole the company. Stephanie lauds that here they are about to launch a new company and Phoebe makes her debut as a model, so many things in her life will change. Lots of responsibilities, but she can see she is becoming a woman. Phoebe admits its making her nervous, but in a good way. Stephanie wags her finger and reminds her that she is a Forrester and shes proud she is her granddaughter. Then shes reminded she has to get home. Pam is flying to Chicago. Phoebe remarks they loved having her here. Stephanie said she feels that way too and she feels they may see more of her soon with her mother in tow. She urges her to work hard but dont take it too seriously. They hug and say I Love You.
Nick repeats it Forrester threatened to kill him? Rick states that Ridge is NOT a Forrester; hes a Forrester. He doesnt know what the hell Ridge is and he could care less. Nick offers that hes certainly no relative of his. Rick says well they have something in common, but now Ridge sees him as a danger, a threat to his daughter. And all because they sang a duet at the party, because they are spending time together and shes just a kid. Nick reminds him they are not related, at least by blood. He advises to just be a gentleman and hell be fine. Rick says he will be. He thanks Nick for seeing him and for helping with International. And says he was good for his mom and at the end of the day, she knows it. Nick tells him that he is not quite old enough to be wise. He knows he came there for something, so he can only hope he leaves with that something. And if he doesnt see eye-to-eye with Forrester, just know there is someone in his corner. Rick gives him an appreciative nod.
Brooke thanks Ridge when he says she wins, no more death threats, no more ultimatums. But he does tell her that he will not support a relationship between Rick and Phoebe. She points out they are brother and sister. How could he not support that? He corrects her step-brother and sister. There is no blood relations there. He is sure Rick is very aware of that. Bristling, she wonders what does he mean by that? Ridge answers that honestly, hed prefer them not living under the same roof. He doesnt see how Brooke can say Phoebe has a crush and that is okay. Its bad enough that he comes back and badmouths him and his mother while they are starting up a new company. She says he is just venting his frustration. Ridge calls it venting anger. And hes speaking his mind on issues that he does not have all the information on. She reminds him that she is NOT going to tell him about what happened between Nick and Bridget. Ridge grouses so instead Rick will put Nick on some pedestal? Brooke tells him that he is the one she is with. Rick respects her and what she thinks and who she wants to be with ..She replies yes when Ridge asks if she respects him? And what he wants? He answers then as far as Phoebe is concerned, he wants Rick to keep his hands off .. no more star gazing until 2 a.m., no more little duets or he will have to step in. Is that understood? She replies no, that is NOT understood. Dictating laws how the kids can spend time together, like they live in some sort of police state. Thats NOT acceptable. She goes on ..they are going to be encouraging, they are going to be welcoming, understanding of Rick and Phoebes relationship. They are going to consider it a blessing .and yes they are going to be supportive. Now, is THAT understood?
