Steffy and Rick are in his office hugging. Steffy is grateful to Rick for giving her the disc in memory of Phoebe. Rick is happy she liked the video. Steffy says its the most thoughtful gift shes ever gotten. She hopes Rick doesnt expect something in return. He tells her it was a genuine gift. It was a part of Phoebes life she missed out on and he just wanted to share it.
Donna bursts in Bill Spencers office. Shes been told he wasnt there. She looks around and spots a picture of him. She says out loud hes cute. Bill comes in and overhears her comments. He smiles and says he is a pretty good looking guy. Donna is caught off guard. He asks Donna how he can be of assistance or does he already know. Donna blasts him for Stephanies podcast. She wants him to pull the plug on the former Mrs. Forrester. Stephanie is bitter and wants revenge on Eric. He wanted to move on with her and Stephanie holds her responsible. Her show will just drag him down too. Bill is amused at Donnas enthusiasm in her request. He says maybe he can help her. He likes a passionate woman. Donna looks slightly surprised at his response.
Brooke and Ridge are in his office. Brooke feels Rick is doing his part to stay away from Steffy. Ridge really dislikes Rick working in the building. He really needs her son to stay away from his daughter. Brooke says its over and Rick gave her is word. Ridge asks what if Rick doesnt do as she asked. Brooke quickly says shes on Ridges side about this. They kiss, but its interrupted by Taylor.
Taylor is breathless as she tells Ridge what she saw between Rick and Steffy. Brooke looks annoyed as Ridge looks dismayed at the news.
Rick asks Steffy if she thinks his gift is a bribe. He knows everything he does is suspect. He was being selfish. He could have just left it on the desk, but he wanted to see her face. He likes to see her happy. Steffy tells him he doesnt have to apologize for giving her a present. Rick says he promised everyone hed stay away from her. He heads for the door and she stops him.
Steffy hugs Rick. She tells him she wanted to forget him. She should hate him, but she cant. His gift shows her there is some good in him. She asks Rick if he wants a future with her. Rick says of course. Steffy tells him he has to do anything she asks. He agrees. Steffy tells him he has to make things right with her dad. He has to end this feud. Rick is taken aback at her request. Rick doesnt think he can do it. Steffy says he has to treat her dad with respect, no matter how Ridge treats him. Ricks says hell do whatever he has to do, to be able to spend the rest of his life with her. Steffy knows he used her and so does her dad. If he wants another chance with her, its on her terms. Rick takes her hands. He wants more than a chance with her. He wants her love and respect. He wants to go to Ridge. Steffy says she will go to her dad and show him how Rick is trying to change.
In Ridges office, Brooke confronts Taylor about barging in on them. Taylor tells Ridge what she saw. Brooke starts making excuses for Rick automatically. Taylor says they were gazing into each others eyes and Rick was touching her face. It wasnt business. Ridge wants to know if Steffy is still with Rick. Brooke tells Taylor she cant pull out the pitchfork every time the kids run into each other. Taylor insists it was more than that. Ridge tells Brooke she cant help herself. Shes already making excuses and they havent even confronted Rick yet. Ridge tells Brooke she is supposed to be on his side. Taylor says obviously Brooke isnt on his side. Brooke cuts her eyes at Taylor. Ridge says he told Rick to never go near his daughter again. Obviously Rick cant live with this and he has to wonder can Brooke.
In Bills office, he tells Donna it takes a gutsy woman to barge in his office and tell him what to do. He likes this. Donna says its really not like her. Donna says Stephanie does this to her. Shes just an ugly woman that he doesnt want to get into bed with. Bill is amused and says certainly not. However, theres nothing ugly about her. Donna looks at him stunned by his obvious flirting.
Back in Ridges office, Taylor tells Brooke she assured them Rick would stay away form Steffy. Brooke says up until now, he had.
Steffy bursts in on her parents and Brooke. Ridge asks if she was in Ricks office. She was supposed to stay away from him. Steffy is a bit surprised by her fathers tone. She says defensively, she was dropping off a report. Taylor tells her what she saw. Steffy is surprised her mother saw them. She tries to downplay what happened. Brooke tries to get her to explain more. Steffy tells them about Ricks gift. Its beautiful. Taylor tells her he did it to win her back. Steffy thinks Rick is trying to make amends. He knows what he did was wrong. Ridge reminds her how disrespectful Rick was to her. She knows what Rick said was sick, but he never said he didnt love her. Her parents tell her she cant forgive him. She says she already has and they will too, after they watch the video. They have to change their opinion.
Donna tells Bill he cant distract her with compliments. He just sounds like his father. Bill assures her hes nothing like his father. He doesnt waste time with words and games. He says what he means and he gets what he wants. She tells him how much this broadcast of Stephanies could ruin Forrester. Bill wonders if Stephanies opinion is that important. Bill is surprised Eric cant stand up for himself. He guesses Eric doesnt know Donna is there. Donna says she chose to do this on her own. Bill sarcastically says its nice for Donna to stand up for her man. His ex wife is making a fool out of him in front of the whole world. Eric doesnt do anything himself to stop it. However, Stephanie is making a lot of money for him. He could be persuaded with the right motivation to pull Stephanies broadcast. He could use his influence to turn the public sentiment. He likes Donnas spunk and would love to see more of it. He walks up behind her and holds the sleeves of her shirt. He says hed like to see less of this, meaning her clothing. Donna looks shocked at the proposition.
Ridge tells Steffy hes not watching the video. She begs him, saying its important. She goes to his desk and pops it in his computer. The flashes of Phoebe fill the screen along with her last song. He and Taylor are transfixed. Brooke is quiet and wipes tears as she watches too. She looks at Ridge. Taylor is in tears. Steffy looks sadly at her parents as she wipes tears. Ridge is emotional. Steffy says this is why she forgave Rick. They both never stopped caring. Ridge says this isnt an act of kindness. Its a reminder of what that monster took from them. First, he used her death to seduce her. Now, hes using Phoebes memory to lure her back. Steffy looks stunned at her dads accusation and the vehemence in his voice.
Bill continues to proposition Donna. Bill tells Donna shes drawn to powerful men. He has what she needs, but he wants something from her. Donna reminds him shes married. She moves away from him. Bill tells Donna if Eric cant go after his ex wife, hes not going to come after him. He approaches Donna, who backs away from him. He gets her up against the wall. He asks her what she has to say and calls her his little barracuda. Donna looks a bit off balance.
In Erics office, Ridge is livid. Rick is sick. Brooke feels its a tribute to Phoebe. Ridge is angry and tells Brooke she was supposed to back him. He yells at Steffy she was free of Rick, but he couldnt stand it. Steffy says she misses him. They never stopped loving each other. Ridge screams no. He angrily says he doesnt want her to ever see him. Ridge heads for the door. Brooke walks towards Ridge and tells him to listen to what Steffy has to say. Ridge says its the last straw. He doesnt want to hear one more word. Steffy is a bit scared at her fathers reaction. She says she takes it back. She sees her father cant accept this. She walks out apologizing, heartbroken. Brooke cant believe Ridge would do this to his daughter. She goes after Steffy. Taylor tries to comfort Ridge. She says shell go check on Steffy. Ridge is hurt. Brookes promises meant nothing. He knew Rick was going to be a problem for them, when they got married. Brooke refuses to see him for who he really is. Ridge reflects on how he would have done things differently, if he had known all this before. Taylor asks what would have happened. Ridge says it doesnt matter now. Theyre married. Taylor tells him theyre not. She tried to tell him before. Ridge looks at her in astonishment.
