Nicole can tell that Vivienne doesnt think that it is a good idea. Vivienne didnt say that. Nicole saw her face. Nicole wonders what Vivienne thinks that Julius might say. Vivienne doesnt know. Nicole asks what she is afraid that he might say then. Vivienne knows that Julius can be blunt and some people, maybe Rick even might not appreciate his directness.

Vivienne knows that it is not easy for him. Nicole should know how it has been difficult for him all these years. Nicole would like to know what has changed. Why is Julius fine with this now?

Julius assumes that he didnt know about Maya when he put it up. Rick didnt. Julius notes that he never took it down. Rick didnt. He was not exactly proud of how he reacted when he found out. Julius assumed he would have suspected. Rick had no idea. No one knew until Spencer made it public. Julius asks if he was humiliated. Rick wasnt. He loves Maya and is completely committed to her. Julius wonders if he is straight. Rick is confused. Julius means does he like girls. Rick thinks that is obvious. Julius also assumes that before Maya he dated regular woman. Rick doesnt see the difference between other women and Maya. Julius points out that Rick is successful and can have anyone woman that he wants. He doesnt understand why he would want Maya. Rick asks if it surprises him that someone appreciates Maya for who she is. Rick thought that Julius was trying to accept her. That is what Maya told him at least. He would like to know if he is wrong about that. Julius is trying. That is why he is here. He sees that life that Maya has made here and would like to be a part of it. He would like to know that Rick is committed though and would like to know that the commitment will last.

Steffy wants her to go home and get some rest. Steffy turns and asks if Aly heard that. Aly did. Ridge wants everyone on their best behavior. This line is about freedom and California. They are a California fashion house so that is what they are. Caroline agrees. Aly walks out to the lobby and tells herself that this cannot go on. She has to stop it.
Rick explains that he has been through a lot with Maya. Julius would rather not know what Maya has been through. Rick feels that Julius would be impressed. He has never met anyone so determined and sure of themselves. Rick is inspired by Maya in a way that he never has been before. Julius wants to know his intentions. Rick sees a future with Maya. Julius is glad. He used to pride himself in the stability of his family. When Maya left they lost that. This trip might help them get it back.
Maya would just like to thank Ridge. She knows that he is not her biggest supporter but he is doing something different with this line and she is grateful to be a part of it.
