Steffy and Rick are in his office, where he just proposed. Steffy cant believe hes serious. Rick says he wants to spend the rest of his life with her. Steffy is ecstatic. They kiss each other passionately.
Brooke is in Ridges office, where they discuss how difficult it was for her to fire Rick. Brooke feels like she turned her back on her son, but Rick is no longer welcome at Forrester. Ridge thanks her for what she did for him. He hopes this is what it will take for Rick to get his life back on track. Ridge puts his arm around Brooke to comfort her. She looks miserable.
Steffy and Rick continue to kiss. She asks if they can really get married. Rick suggests they elope. They discuss Vegas or Hawaii. Steffy says shes always imagined Hawaii. Rick agrees it would be so much better. Steffy wants to know what happens afterwards. Rick says whatever makes them happy. They discuss moving to Europe. They agree it sounds perfect. They dont have to stay in the fashion industry. Rick asks if that means yes. Steffy gets serious and says how they can really get married. Rick holds her and rains small kisses on her head. He again asks her if shell marry him. Steffy is torn. She says they cant think about themselves. What about their parents. Rick says thats what people do when theyre in love, worry about themselves. Steffy questions if thats what this is. Rick doesnt know where shes going with this. She professes her love for him, but asks if he feels the same way. She wants to know if marrying her would be the ultimate revenge against her father. Rick looks stunned at her question.
Brooke tells Ridge she feels Rick will never look at her the same. Ridge tells her she did the right thing. He says Rick will come to realize what she did helped him. Rick will always love his mother. Ridge says there will be a place for Rick in the family in time. Right now he needs help. Brooke looks hopeful. Ridge hugs her and says he hopes Rick listens to what he asked and stays away from him and Steffy.
Back in Ricks office, he cant believe Steffy doubts his love for her. Steffy protests that she doesnt think its a con, but wonders if subconsciously Rick could be doing this to hurt Ridge. Rick gets angry and says people are putting these thoughts in her head. Steffy says he has to admit his behavior has been bizarre. Just a few months ago, he proposed to her mother. She turned him down and he blamed Ridge. Now hes proposing to her. Steffy says she gave him her heart, but it doesnt feel very safe. She doesnt want to be part of a revenge scheme. If hes using her, say so and they can go their separate ways. Rick looks offended at the accusation.
Rick tells Steffy his feelings for her are real. Steffy wants to believe him. Rick admits their relationship started off on the wrong foot. He thought she was naïve and did plan to use her. Hes disgusted at himself. He swears hes never felt like this for anyone. He says when he was with Taylor; he was trying to be a savior. He didnt know who he was at that time. He adamantly says hes not faking this. Steffy listens with tears. He kisses her tenderly. Steffy breaks away and says it doesnt matter; they cant be together. Rick says hes selfish and doesnt accept that. Look at what hes done for her. Hes lost his familys trust, all for her. He doesnt care, because he doesnt want to lose her. Steffy says he doesnt think before he acts. Everything he does is just a spur of the moment grand gesture. Steffy says she needs something more stable. She needs someone that has their act together. She knows theyre supposed to be together, but its not just their parents keeping them apart. She says its Rick himself. He listens silently and then agrees. He says shell see him differently. Steffy looks taken aback that he would agree. Rick says he knows hes done a lot wrong, but he wants to be the man she wants him to be. Hell prove to her he can be that man. He grabs her and kisses her. He says he loves her and kisses her again. He leaves, while Steffy looks unsure.
In Ridges office, Brooke rest in his arms on the couch. Ridge asks if she feels better. Brooke is still down, but says she feels a little better. Ridge isnt convinced. Brooke says she just needs more time. Ridge teases her that she cant have much time, since shes already late. Brooke jumps up and looks at him questioningly. She doesnt know what shes late for. Ridge says its been an hour, since she kissed her husband. Brooke plays along and kisses Ridge very intimately. They continue to kiss as Ridge asks if she feels better. Brooke says how could she not, while leaning in for another kiss.
Rick goes to Erics office and says he just needs a few minutes. He thanks his dad for all hes done over the last few months. Eric says hes not looking at this as an ending. He knows its impossible for Rick to be here now, but he hopes it will happen again in the near future. Eric tells Rick to get some help. Rick agrees. He said hes going out proud with his head up. He didnt mean to disappoint his father. Eric says he did, but he never stopped loving him. He hugs Rick, who fights back tears.
Rick tells his dad he wont hear from him for a while. Hes going to work on some things. He wants to earn back his respect. Eric tells him he already has his respect. Brooke and Ridge walk in on the conversation. Rick tells them hell be back for the rest of his things after hours. Brooke grabs his arm and asks him to wait. She says she knows hes angry with her, but he has to see why she had to let him go. Rick says he will work hard to earn his way back to the company. He apologizes to Brooke and Ridge for his lies and manipulation. Ridge looks surprised and a bit doubtful. Rick goes on to say he was raised better than that and they didnt deserve the treatment he gave them. Hes disgusted with himself and will work hard to change. Brooke hugs him with tears in her eyes. She tells him she will always love him. Rick leaves as they all look deep in thought.
Steffy is on the roof at Forrester. She thinks about Ricks proposal. She knows how impossible it is. She plays back in her head everything Rick said. She says if only Rick could change.
Ridge is still in Erics office, where he pours himself a drink. He tells his dad and Brooke he thinks Rick is up to something. Brooke says she really thinks Rick walked out a different person. All he needed was a kick in the pants. Eric agrees, but says it may take some time. He does think Rick can change. Ridge still looks unconvinced.
Rick goes to the roof and sees Steffy. She tells him they cant be seen together. Rick earnestly tells her they will be together. He says she may not see him for a while. Hes going to do what she asked. He says he loves her and asks her to wait for him. He promises hell be back. He kisses her deeply and leaves her looking surprised and uncertain.
