Rick kisses Taylor and tells her that he cant let her go. She states they have no choice as her daughter is in love with him. He begs for her not to walk away. He walks back in soaking set as Taylor took the umbrella. Phoebe thanks him for all that he has done for her mom. Hes been so supportive and caring, like a real friend when shes needed it the most and that means so much to Phoebe. Its one of the reasons she realizes how much she still cares for him. He tells her she knows that is all in the past. She admits that she never stopped loving him. She ended it because she simply felt they were at different places in their lives .she was young and inexperienced compared to him. He points out they have both grown, and a lot has happened since then. She agrees and thats why tonight she wants to prove how far they both have come. So Rick Forrester, prepare for an evening youll never forget.
Katie is perplexed. Nick is thinking unacceptable thoughts about her? What does that mean? He tells her to sit down. What if he said he was interested in her? To make a point. She wonders what point would that be? He replies perhaps to convince her that he is over Brooke. Wouldnt that be a healthy choice? To be over his past completely maybe? There are more women in the world other than Brooke and Bridget. Like Katie for example. She reminds him that he doesnt even like her. He scoffs that he does; shes quirky and funny and has a good attitude .and she has a great body. She says that is enough, he can stop there. He says the point is there is more than Brooke and Bridget and he doesnt want to keep making the same wrong decisions. He slaps the table and says new attitude, new choices and maybe he should start with her. They both laugh, he must be kidding!
Ashley drops in on Ridge and sings her brothers praises for the Restless Style launch in Genoa City. Felicia even enjoyed it too and committed to a limited advertising run. Ashley would like to get the fragrance line involved. He agrees and they need a name, and hes waiting for Belief to be cleared, just like the fabric. Legal is working on it and they should know pretty soon. She is glad he is still thinking about it. He confides that he is also still thinking of her all the time. What an extraordinary woman she is and how any man would be very, very lucky to have a life with her. She teases, any man, but you. He answers that he went back to Brooke because of their history, because of their child and because of a promise of commitment that has yet to be realized. Brooke is in the middle of a rather large dilemma right now, but she still promises him her full focus and attention. She gathers he is still not getting it though. Yes, he comes to work, does his job, but continues to do a lot of soul-searching and wondering. She comments he needs to take his time and make sure he is certain. And she needs to tell him something else ..she still cares about him and is supportive, but she doesnt think its good that she be his sounding board any more where Brooke is concerned.
Ridge apologizes, he didnt mean to be so insensitive. They dont realize that Brooke is listening in on the other side of the door. Ashley says its okay, but she doesnt know what he wants her to say. It seems so obvious .the writing is on the wall .he is gonna have to accept Brookes involvement with Nick. Ridge just wants Brooke to be honest. Ashley says she will be honest with him .he left her because he thought things would be different with Brooke this time. Hed even said it was going to be smooth sailing and they would have their happily ever after. So where is this fairy tale? As she doesnt see it and she doesnt think he does either.
Taylor sits down at the bar and her thoughts go immediately to Rick. What is she doing? Hes so young, this is ridiculous. The bartender offers her a drink, but she declines. Rick offers his compliments to the chef and wonders how or when Phoebe learned to cook like this. She plays coy that there is a lot of things about her that he doesnt know. She was just trying to re-create the orange chicken like in one of their first meals at a little place downtown. Hes surprised she remembered that. She vows she will never forget their times together. He says he wont either. He wants her to know that he sees her as a wonderful, amazing woman and yes they had a lot of times he will never forget, but that she has to know that nothing can ever happen between them. She thinks it is because of her father and advises that she doesnt believe he will interfere this time. Rick is too important to her and things are different. Shes not some lovesick little girl any more, she knows what she wants. He is not sure she does. She offers that she has tried to move on, but everyday she cant help but think of him and their relationship. Its perfect its like when two people are meant to be together, its magic! Thinking elsewhere, he replies that he knows the feeling. She replies that she has been afraid to tell him, but she just has to do it. She wasnt ready to take their relationship to that next level, but now she is. She is ready to prove to him how much she still loves him.
Taylor tells the bartender she will just have some sparkling water for now. She sighs and thinks to herself that it could never work for her and Rick .but the feelings are so real. Newlyweds are close by and free champagne is poured for all. Taylors phone rings and she asks Rick why is he calling? And where is Phoebe? He replies she is in the kitchen, and he has to tell her about him and Taylor. She begs him not to. Rick says he loves her, and Phoebe needs to hear the truth. She begs more, please dont. If he loves her at all, he wont. She prides herself on being the opposite of his mother, and shes not going to be the mother who sleeps with her daughters boyfriend. She swears that she loves him for everything he has done for her, but she loves her daughter and her relationship with her more. He claims that he and Phoebe have never been intimate, and it was she that dumped him. Tearfully, Taylor tells him it cant happen.
Ashley tells Ridge that she told him she did not want to talk about Brooke, and here she is talking about Brooke. Ridge says its okay, he wants to hear what she has to say. He appreciates her candor, but he thought this time with Brooke it could be different, because Bridget is back in Nicks bedroom and Brooke is even encouraging it. She says again she doesnt know why she is discussing this. Hes just going to stay with Brooke no matter what she does to him. She claims she is not upset, she doesnt want to be upset. What she wants is to be past this, and she is not. She admits she still cares for him and is still vulnerable to him. Shes been struggling with these feelings and trying to keep it to herself. But, she really needs to tell him how she sees it ..and she thinks Brooke needs therapy when shes with Ridge she wants Nick and when shes with Nick, she wants Ridge .not to mention that she has been married to both Ridges father and brother thats sick! She thinks he needs to get out, cut his losses while he can. The bottom line is Brooke needs serious help. He laughs, he doesnt completely disagree. He concedes that ever since Nick came into the picture, Brookes heart has been divided. He wants that life they have always dreamed of, but hes not sure it is even possible now.
Katie tells Nick that he can stop making fun of her now. Hes either joking or having some sort of midlife crisis. Whichever, he asks what is this with the chip on her shoulder? Is it just him or men in general? She retorts that he is not her shrink and she will say it one more time she doesnt hate men and contrary to popular belief, she is not a prude either. Just do her a favor, and dont hurt Bridget.
Brooke walks into Ridges office and he tells her if she is there to talk fragrances, Ashley just left. She answers that she doesnt need those sort of projections, but she is curious what he thought of Ashley's projections for them. He realizes she overheard. And she cant believe that he would actually discuss their relationship with Ashley. He answers, Logan, I am not going to apologize for the way I am feeling about this. He says he believes she is way too involved with Nicks life. She asks him to please dont question her commitment to him. He points out that he was engaged to Ashley, but he left her because Brooke promised him something .how she could prove to everyone how much she loved him. And now hed like to prove how much he still loves her.
Nick tells Katie that he doesnt want anybody to get hurt, especially not Bridget. Katie says good because she has talked to Brooke about this and she is very concerned about his commitment to Bridget. And Katie admits she respects that he is assessing the situation before he gets more involved. Nick scoffs that she is taking being the aunt very seriously. Katie says she doesnt want Bridget to be hurt, but especially by him since she encouraged this. He burps loudly and then tells her that he told her not to get involved in this. She thinks the burp is disgusting even if he says it is his house. He asks if she has ever heard anybody burp before? She replies only Jack when she feeds him. He replies, well I just ate, so I guess I am due a burp. He points out that he did say excuse me and hell have to be more conscious of being mysterious then. Bridget walks in and asks what is going on? The hospital was slow tonight so she thought she would sneak back in. He says dinner was good and she was missed.
Brooke denies that she is involved in Nicks life. Ridge doesnt know how she can say that, when there are two biological parents and she is involved in that childs life and she cant separate herself from him. She argues that of course she cant, hes her flesh and blood and if he is asking her to give that up, she cant. He reminds her this is not just any baby or any biological father, this is Nick .the guy she was married to ..the guy she admits she cant get out of her heart. Hes not even going to ask her if Nick is out of her heart, as he knows he is not. She knows he is not and even Nick knows he is not. And that is what Ridge does not like and what he can not live with. She asks why he is saying this? Is it because of what Ashley just said to him? Is he having second thoughts about leaving Ashley?
Taylor comes into her bedroom and starts to put her things aside and notices Rick in her bed with a grin on his face. Calmly he says hi and she asks what is he doing there? He replies getting ready for bed (in his cute little tight black shorts). She gasps, where is Phoebe, wheres her daughter? He rushes to calm her, that it's okay, Phoebe actually had to go back to work she had an unscheduled photo shoot. Taylor still panics and wonders why he is there and what is he thinking? He tells her just to listen to him he wants her to trust him .he wants her to know just how much he cares for her. He wants her to make love with him and everything else will fall into place. He tells her that he came here tonight to have an unforgettable evening with her, and that is exactly what he intends to do. He says she means everything to him let him prove that to her ..
let me show you how much I love you.
