Taylor and Ridge are in Erics office at Forrester. Ridge cant believe the news Taylor gave him about his marriage to Brooke being invalid. He looks at her perplexed waiting for an explanation.
Donna is pinned up against the wall in Bill Spencer Jr.s office by the man himself. Donna tells him she cant believe hes willing to let Stephanie drag Forrester Creations down with his help. Bill tells her Eric is screwed, but with a little carpentry on her part she could fix things right up. Donna cant believe his blatant attempts to proposition her. She tells him theres no way she would hook up with him to keep Stephanie from ruining them. She asks him why hes doing this. He nonchalantly tells her because he can. He saunters over and sits at his desk with his feet up. Donna looks a bit shaken. She asks Bill why he doesnt go back to New York. He says he likes the weather. Its good for his tan. Bill tells her hes looking at property in Beverly Hills. It appears to be next door to her. Donna tells him not to dare. She cant believe hes being so casual about letting Forrester go downhill. Bill tells her he would hate to see Forrester fade in to the dust also. Donna asks why he wont help, if thats the case. He tells her maybe if she got down on her knees and said pretty please. Donna looks surprised at his audacity.
Brooke and Stephanie burst in Ricks office. Hes surprised to see them. He sees Steffy is upset. Brooke tells him Ridge had a huge reaction to his tribute to Phoebe. Steffy says her dad feels this is the biggest manipulation Rick has had. Rick cant believe it. He wants to talk to Ridge. Both women dissuade him from going there. Steffy tells him Ridge is against them more than ever. They just have to face the truth about things being over for good.
Ridge paces around the office. He cant believe what Taylor is saying. He thought things were very official. Taylor tells him there was a clerical error with the license. She explains how Pam messed up the social security numbers. Ridge doesnt understand why hes just hearing about this. Taylor tells him Pam was scared and went to Stephanie. Stephanie thought Ridge had so much on his plate; she didnt want to further upset him. Taylor originally agreed with her, but thought Ridge needed to know. Ridge looks taken aback by the whole thing. Taylor uses this opportunity to get her point across. She tells Ridge she cant understand why Brooke wont support him about the whole Rick and Steffy ordeal. They are the only two who seem to get it. Ridge listens without comment. Taylor goes on to say she never treated Ridge like this, when they were married. She just doesnt understand Brookes attitude. Taylor tells Ridge sometimes she dreams about their times together. She asks if he ever has those thoughts. Ridge looks a bit caught off guard by the question.
In his office, Rick tries to convince Steffy she shouldnt give up on them so easily. Brooke tells him they have to, since the situation is so volatile. Even though Steffy has forgiven Rick, Ridge cant accept things. Rick is upset his mother is taking Ridges side. Brooke lets him know Ridge warned her about siding with Rick. Her marriage is in danger, especially since Stephanie is saying all these nasty things. Rick isnt happy with his mothers choice.
Ridge has trouble digesting what Taylor has to say. The timing is terrible with all thats going on. Hes frustrated with Brooke and how fast she jumps to defend Rick. Ridge says it definitely brings up some issues. Taylor thinks Ricks video was sick. Ridge says he has let his feelings be known to Brooke about Rick and Steffy. Its mind boggling to him how Brooke continues to side with Rick. He just didnt expect this from her. Theyve managed to get through so much. Taylor gives him a sympathetic look.
Donna looks at the window design in Bill Spencers office. She tells Bill Jr. it reminds her of his father. She compares the two men. Bill aggress the apple doesnt fall far from the tree. Donna quips especially the rotten ones. She reminds Bill his father had nude pictures taken of her for a magazine. Bill says she had quite an impact on his father. Thats why he named her in his will. Donna has an ironic smile, since the bequeath was basically a joke. Bill says his father appreciated Donna and so does he. Shes his kind of woman. She goes after what she wants. He says she seduced Eric with the best sex of his life. Bam! Shes the next Mrs. Forrester. Donna takes offense and tells Bill her marriage is about more than sex. Bill is amused. He tells Donna her skills in the bedroom must be great and hes eager to find out for himself. Donnas mouth is open at this mans gall. She firmly tells him nothing is ever going to happen with them. Bill gets in her face and tells her playing hard to get is one of his favorite characteristics in a woman. Hell chase her a bit as long as he doesnt have to work too hard. He always gets what he wants. Donna shakes her head at his arrogance. Donna tells him this is the most unprofessional meeting shes ever had. Bill says itll be one of the most unforgettable also. Donna point blank asks him what he wants with her and Eric.
Rick cant believe Ridge didnt take his tribute to Phoebe as sincere. He just wanted to do something good. Brooke says Ridge doesnt think he was being genuine. Rick says it was a peace offering for the whole family. It wasnt a ploy to get back with Steffy. Steffy walks over and puts her hand on Ricks arm. She warmly tells him how much she appreciated the tribute. She felt closer to Phoebe than she had in a long time. Rick says when he saw her face as she watched the video, he allowed himself to believe they could get back together. Steffy reminds him she wasnt sure how her father would react. She warned him not to get his hopes up. Rick says he knows she wants to be with him as much as he wants to be with her. Steffy tells him her dad cant accept them being together. He still holds Rick responsible for Phoebes death. Rick looks annoyed.
Back in Erics office, Taylor continues talking about Brookes lack of support for Ridge. She says Brooke has never lost a child, so how could she know what they feel. Ridge is still bitter about Ricks involvement. Taylor feels Steffy is still grieving and deserves to be someone other than Rick. Ridge didnt think Rick could get any worst. Taylor thinks Rick is narcissistic. He thinks the world revolves around him, so you never know what to expect. Ridge angrily says what Rick pulled today was sick. Brooke bought into it. He thought they could overcome anything. However, if Brooke continues to blindly allow Rick to continue, hes not sure they can survive it. Taylors face remains expressionless.
In Bill Jr.s office, Donna asks Bill if he has something against Eric. He dodges and answers by saying he admires Erics wife, like his father admired Stephanie. He thinks Eric has carved a little niche for himself. Donna doesnt understand, if Bill thinks Eric is admirable, why hook up with Stephanie. She just doesnt get what he has planned in the end. Bill continues making sexually loaded comments to Donna. She tells him she has a hard time believing he came to LA, just to hit on her. Before he can answer, his phone rings. He tells Donna he has to get that. He looks forwarded to seeing more of her, his little barracuda. He picks up the call basically dismissing Donna. She stands speechless.
Brooke reminds Rick he promised not to push this relationship. She tells him and Steffy she will give them time to end this once and for all. She looks at Rick and tells him to mean it this time. She glances at Steffy and leaves.
After Brooke is gone, Rick tells Steffy he really doesnt want to do this. She says they have to. Rick wants her to explain to him why theyre living their lives for other people. Steffy tells him its bigger than them. Rick suggests running away with him. Steffy tells him they cant run. She cant turn her back on her dad. Rick is angry and wants to know what about her happiness. This kind of love only comes around once in a life time. He begs Steffy not to throw this chance away. She says they have to. She tells Rick if he loves her, he would understand this. They have to go their own separate ways. Rick isnt totally convinced. He pulls out the ring box. Steffy doesnt want to take it. Rick tells her to take the ring and put it somewhere special. Whenever she feels alone, she can pull it out and know hes always with her. Steffy closes her eyes and looks sad. Rick folds her fingers around the box. She opens her eyes and they lock eyes. Rick leans in and holds her face. They kiss tenderly.
Still with Ridge, Taylor understands a mothers right to protect her child. Ridge says he always considers Steffy first. Taylor is sympathetic and knows how Ridge feels. She doesnt understand how Brooke cant see it. Taylor lets Ridge know she firmly stands with him on Steffy and Rick not being together. Taylor tells him shes watched him do this dance with Brooke for years. It always turns out the same, hes unhappy. Personally, she always thought he was happiest with her. Ridge looks surprised at the turn in the conversation. Taylor says things happen so quickly. The kids grow up and suddenly youre grandparents. Ridge runs his fingers through his hair and shudders. He hopes this doesnt happen any time soon. Taylor laughs. She quietly tells Ridge she misses him. She wishes she could go back and change some things in her life. Ridge looks surprised. She tells Ridge its up to him what kind of future he wants. He tells Taylor hes not going to refile the marriage license right now. He wants to keep this between the two of them. Taylor slightly smiles. She slowly walks towards Ridge and tells him if he was married to Brooke she couldnt do this. She reaches up and lightly kisses him. She caresses his face and kisses him again. She tells him maybe they can pick up where they left off. Ridge looks at her with a quizzical expression.
