Poolside, Phoebe invites Rick over for a swim. His favorite person isnt there and even if he were, it would be alright since they are allowed to see each other now. Ridge is watching and listening from the background. Rick comments that her dad thinks he is a louse and Phoebe remarks that was before when he was still seeing whoever it was. If she has moved on, so can her dad. Ridge comes forward and makes some dig about her Casanova. He strikes a good nerve though when he tells Phoebe he just came from Ashleys. She loves her a lot, amazing, classy and honest. Everything that he deserves. He states that she deserve that too and Rick aint it. She doesnt want to hear that, but he says Rick is not true to her. They were broken up, what one day and already he met someone in a bar? Or if it wasnt, then it wasnt a fling and hes been seeing someone behind her back. Someone hes probably sleeping with. Again, she refuses to listen to him and wont hear of it. She states she has moved on and she needs him to also.
Constantine looks up to find Rick staring at him in the studio. Rick wants to make sure he still has studio time to lay down some fresh tracks and not rely on karaoke. Constantine reminds him everything is as he asked. There will be no need for trickery. He feels their duet will win and Phoebe will start making a name for herself in the business and Rick can go back to his little chickie on the side.
Ding dong, its not the Avon lady. Ashley opens the door to Brooke. Cleverly, Ashley says Ridge just left. Brooke hastens that it isnt Ridge but Ashley that she came to see. Lets see, says Ashley. Brooke doesnt like her seeing Ridge, is that it? No, not really, but she is concerned..... ahem .....for Ashley since she and Ridge do have a history and share a child together. She is sure Ashley would not want to interfere with that. Ashley admits she doesnt. Brooke thinks she has clear sailing, an understanding, until Ashley says she would never stand in the way of their parenting together, but she is not stepping out of the situation at all.
Ridge advises Phoebe that he doesnt want to see her depending on a man. She can become very successful and happy by herself. She knows she can, but she also can do that with Rick. And it doesnt mean her entire life is centered around him. She brings up Constantine and Ricks challenge so now maybe she can pursue this rock star thing more freely. Ridge is worried what will happen if just by some fluke she and Rick do win. The fashion industry will always be there for her, but now she has a chance to do something with her music, so please dont let somebody stand in her way. And if Rick doesnt like her moving on, then to hell with him. But she loves him and it matters to her what he thinks.
The guys duke it out over their love and concern for Phoebe. Constantine laments that when Phoebes eyes are opened, and she finally dumps Rick for good, they both know he wont be alone for long. His secret little woman is out there someplace and it wont be long before he turns to her again.
Brooke seems surprised, doesnt Ashley know the complexities of a woman getting involved with a man who has a child with another woman? She trusts Ashley will do whats best for everyone and not turn this into a battle. Ashley pouts that she doesnt want a battle either, but Ridge has made it clear he wants her in his life.
Phoebe turns to find Rick admiring her shape. He says just long enough to memorize her bathing suit. They kiss and she asks if he brought his bathing suit? Darn, he forgot it, guess they will have to go skinny dipping. No, she has one in the pool house to which now he has forgotten how to put one on so she will have to go help. She playfully tells him he has to cool off; he scoops her up and says she is the one that needs to go into the pool. He throws her on the lounge and they liplock again.
Ridge visits Constantine at the studio and first admonishes him not to call him Mr. Forrester, that is his dad, its Ridge. And secondly to keep this in confidence. Hes happy to hear about the duo contest. Finally she has something to focus on besides Rick. Constantine mentions the sexy voicemail, he was hoping she would realize he was no good for her. This is news to Ridge, and his sweet, innocent daughter still keeps insisting they didnt have sex. Ridge asks if he still has the message, but Constantine replies no. Phoebe asked him to erase it, and now all is forgiven. Ridge wishes he had it, he might have recognized the voice. And if it was a little more real to Phoebe, she might not be so determined to hang on to this punk.
Sweetly Ashley tells Brooke that maybe she should take a break between relationships and reflect a little on this. Brooke smiles, yes she has made mistakes. She admits that. She is sure Ashley has too, and they dont get to do do-overs. The best they can do is make amends to the people they have wronged, which is what she will do with Ridge. Ashley wishes her all the best and says she is kind of tired. Brooke can take a hint, she hopes Ashley can too.
Rick and Phoebe get out of the pool and towel off, his little Mermaid. She pops a strawberry in his mouth and pours herself a glass of tea. He fills her in on his visit to Constantine and now all he has to do is find the perfect song. Either way she will be happy cause she has him. Now if only her dad would lighten up. Hes still worried about Rick and this other woman. Rick assures her she has nothing to worry about. He loves her, there is no one else ..even if she is not ready hes going to find every possible way to make love to her by doing things like this (kissing) ..and in song, their duet. He vows he is going to pour his heart and soul into this song, they cant lose.
Meanwhile Constantine assures Ridge that he and Phoebe will come out on top. Not only will their record be good for business, but it will show her there is a big, wide world out there, one that does not revolve around Rick Forrester. Ridge celebrates that, he just wants it over between the two of them before she gets in any deeper. Constantine assures him they want the same thing and they shake hands on it.
Phoebe and Rick kiss but she pulls away, she cant stop thinking about the other woman .but whoever she is, she doesnt want to know. She doesnt want that picture in her head. She makes him promise that she is gone and that she is never going to meet her. She gives him a kiss and leaves to go change clothes. He checks his messages and sees there is one from Ashley and calls. She says they need to talk about their situation, the secrecy of it all. She cant deal with it. All this sneaking around. Whats the point? They have moved on. Hes with Phoebe and she is dating Ridge. He flips, my God. She tells him he doesnt have the right to tell her who she can and can not date. This is awkward and they just need to be truthful. Tell them they had a thing and its over. He understands her wanting to be above board, but its going to blow up in their faces. People will get hurt, especially Phoebe .she just can not know they were involved!
Ashley argues that they are going to find out. He says not if she doesnt broadcast it. He knows she wants to do the right thing, but this will be a disaster. She declares it will be a bigger disaster if they find out they have been hiding this all along. At least this way they can control how and when the information comes out. A knock at the door and its Ridge (again). Rick begs her NOT to tell him.
A handsome man at my door, how lucky does a girl get? Ashley wonders if he is there to flirt or is there a reason for his visit? He volunteers that he knows Abby is coming tomorrow and his parents are having a little July the 4th gathering by the pool and he wanted to invite her and Abby to attend. She gladly accepts. There will be lot of kids for Abby to play with .and Rick will be there .and he spills that he is really worried about Phoebe and Rick ..apparently there is another woman involved. Yes, Rick claims it is over, but he doesnt trust the guy, and neither should Phoebe. Uh oh, trouble ahead Ridge says, this woman he had an affair with, she is out there somewhere, Ashley, Im going to find out who she is.
