Ridge tells Taylor that his little brotherís power play only works if she supports Thorne. Thorne says that the company needs a change of direction and they both know that. Ridge tells Taylor that Thorne is using her as his shortcut from the basement to the top floor. Eric tells Ridge not to be so condescending but Thorne tells Eric Ridge is just conceited. Ridge tells Taylor to tell Throne that her loyalties are with him, the father of her children and to end this misguided nonsense Thorne is in, right now.
While getting a coffee at Dayzeeís, Amber spots Rick. She goes up to him and asks him if she knows him from somewhere. Rick says he doesnít thinks so but Amber just smiles and says his face is so familiar. Rick says itís probably some other Rick Forrester she knows. She grins and says thatís it, thatís it, heís Rick Forrester. She says itís been so long she couldnít even tell and kisses his cheek before wiping her lipstick off him and saying sometimes she gets carried away. Rick tells Amber she looks good and happy and heís pretty sure he knows why. Amber says Rosie and how her little girl is a miracle. She then smiles and says that, thatís not to say that what him and her had back then wasnít pretty special.
Rick says that he thinks she and Marcus have something going on. Amber points out that Marcus is Roseyís dad, so he will always be a part of their lives but he likes Dayzee. Amber says and she can see why as Dayzee is the total opposite of the way she used to be. She tells Rick that sheís really trying to change for her sake and for her little girlís sake. It scares her at times when she thinks she might not be able to. She has tried before and then just backslid, not that thatís news to him. Rick smiles and agrees.
Ridge continues to prod Thorne and insult him until Eric takes a stand and tells them that itís enough and he is not going to stand here and watch them tear each otherís throats out. Thorne says but heíll let him tear this company apart and this family. Ridge thinks that the only person tearing this family apart is Thorne with his adolescent tantrums and delusions. As for their company, it could not be in better hands and he suggests he can ask anyone. Thorne tells him that he doesnít have a clue, does he? He says that people around Forrester donít like him and they think he is pompous and full of himself. If it were up to them, heíd be the one running this company as it should be because he is a Forrester by blood while he is a Marone.
Eric tells him to stop it and says that they are both his sons. Thorne asks his dad if thatís true then why then, has he been passed over time and time again? Heís through standing in Ridgeís shadow. For years he has been powerless and unable to change this status quo. But not anymore and neither is Taylor. She wants whatís best for her children, Steffy and Thomas, who have been sided in favor of Hope and Brooke for far too long. He says that is going to change because they have the shares to make it happen.
Amber says she knows you canít force someone to fall in love with you even if you are the mother of their child. Rick says everyone needs to be loved. Amber smiles and says that she just wants her little girl to have what she didnít. Rick says she already does because she loves Rosie like crazy and so does Marcus and heís sure they are both trying to give her the best life possible. Amber says he really is a great guy and asks him why he isnít married yet. Rick tells her to please tell him thatís not a proposal. Amber bursts out laughing and says that his mother would go ballistic. Rick says his mother has a lot more to deal with right now. Amber says that sheís done some stupid, hurtful things in her life but hurting him is the one she regrets most. She holds his hand and Rick smiles back at her.
Taylor tells Thorne that she really appreciates him caring for her and her children but she doesnít want to put Thomas and Steffy in the position to side against his father. Thorne looks hurt right after that and Ridge charges on and says that he tried to use his family against him and says that he should fire his insubordinate ďassĒ right now. Thorne doesnít speak to Ridge but tells Eric that he gave Ridge everything. Lead designer, his office, CEO, and the Forrester name. He says he is nothing like him and he is selfish and the only person he is loyal to Stephanie because he is part her and Massimo, the man he despises and the man whose blood pumps through his veins, just like EricĎs does in his.
Thorne then leaves and Eric tries to stop him but Ridge tells his father to let him go as he brought all this onto himself. Taylor looks upset.
As Rick checks his phone Amber brings him more coffee. Amber says sheís not insulting Dayzeeís but she kind of misses Insomnia. Rick and her had some great times here. Rick nods and Amber begins reminiscing, taking about him, and CJ, Raymond. Amber then says that her daughter is going to do things right, unlike her and who knows, maybe one day she will even snag a Forrester. Like she always wishes she could.
Finding a huge stack of boxes in his office Thorne asks the shipping man what the hell is going on here. The man tells him that Ridge told him to store these things in here and leaves. An angry Thorne slams Ridgeís photo into the floor as Taylor walks in. Taylor tells Thorne that she is so sorry for what happened and she wouldnít blame him if he never spoke to her again.
At his favorite restaurant, Eric books a table for one but Jackie who is also there, spots him and calls him over. She asks him if heís meeting someone and when he says no she says that Nick just left and asks if heíll join her. Eric thanks her and sits down but warns her he wonít be very good company right now. Jackie asks him if there is tension at Forrester and suggests that he talk to her about it. She holds his hand and says maybe she could help.
Amber asks Rick if he remembers their first kiss. Rick doesnít say anything but remembers the kiss in his head, seeing themselves much younger. Amber sighs dreamily and says that she was totally into him but then who wouldnít be? He was so hot. Rick says and he was a Forrester and says thatís what was clinched it for her wasnít it? Amber says god, he was so good to her and she just kept screwing things up. Rick says that was the past so there is no point drawing on it. He says no regrets right? And Amber smiles at him.
Thorne tells Taylor that she didnít let him down, Eric did like always. He says that she didnít want to pit her kids against their father and he respects that and he respects her. He says yes, this company means a hell of a lot to him and yes he did get his hopes up but he says something far more significant happened. Something that has taken them by surprise. Thorne says Taylor and him share so much maybe itís finally their time.
Eric and Jackie are talking about Stephanieís tumors and Eric tells her he canít imagine his life without Stephanie. He admits that yes, they want to strangle each other from time to time but thatís just how it is with them. Going back to what Jackie said about a celebration, he tells her that he did have a celebration planned. He tells her he had designed a beautiful piece of lingerie for Stephanie, something very simple and elegant but she completely misread his intentions. He says that she thought he was pushing for more intimacy and needless to say the evening just went downhill from there.
Ridge tells his mother what happened on the phone and tells her they will talk more later. He then phones Brooke and asks her to meet him at Il Giardino.
Rick checks his phone and tells Amber that he really needs to go. Amber asks him if they could do this again sometime. She says that she could cook for him, and says that she is actually really good in the kitchen now. Rick smiles at that and says that he bets she is. Amber asks him if he will call her some time and he says weíll see. He says he has to go now and leaves her with a pat on her shoulder. Once he leaves Amber notices that he left his bag behind and she picks it up and looks through it a little bit.
Thorne asks Taylor if heís moving too fast and assuming too much. Taylor says that she doesnít know maybe they got caught up in Anthonyís prediction and him showing up that night, them spouting their feelings out about being kicked around and not wanting to take it anymore. Taylor says but she knows he only wants whatís best for her and her children and she knows thatís whatís really in her heart. She says that she really appreciates that but maybe itís just not the right time for her to have a man in her life, she doesnít know. Thorneís face falls and Taylor says that but she does care about him, she does, he is such a dear and special man. They share a hug right after that.
Brooke arrives and asks Ridge how his meeting was. Ridge says that he if he never has a meeting like that again it will be too soon. Brooke asks him if he knows his dad is here. Ridge looks over and spots him with Jackie and Brooke and him exchange glances.
Jackie asks Eric if this lack of compassion and intimacy has been an issue between them for a while now? She says she feels it and she realizes this is different because Stephanie has been battling cancer and that takes a toll on the body. Eric says that Stephanie needs him to be more patient and he says he will be. He says that they will work through this. Jackie holds his hand again and says that Stephanie is a very lucky woman to have him, very lucky.
Ridge says that Eric knows that Thorne doesnít have what it takes to lead Forrester and that is why he supports him and so does Stephanie. Brooke asks if heís spoken to Stephanie. Ridge says sheís amazing and is doing wonderful work in Washington. He says heís sure he wishes she had Eric with her right now and she could probably use his support.
Jackie asks Eric that while Stephanie is out of town, why doesnít he let her make him dinner one night? He looks at her worriedly so she says okay, theyíll order it. Eric chuckles and Jackie says that there will be absolutely no hanky panky. Eric agrees and then Jackie says that she knows he is missing Stephanie and she is very much in love with Owen. Eric asks her how that is going as she has given up a man she loves. Jackie tells him that Owen is where he should be. With Bridget and his son and that he belongs there. Jackie says that sheíd be lying thought if she didnít miss being in his arms. She says that Owen was always so gentle with her, always so sensitive and the only other man who was that way with her was Eric. Eric smiles and tenderly strokes her cheek.
Ridge tells Brooke that Stephanie makes some dreadful mistakes every now and then and there are times when he just wants to wring her neck. But right now he is just so darn proud of her. Everything she does to make a difference in peopleís lives, and when he thinks of how close they came to losing her, he chokes up. He doesnít know what their family would do without her and his dad would be lost if he didnít have her.
At that point he and Brooke see Eric and Jackie sharing a kiss and are completely shocked.
