In Ricks office Liam tries to make sense of San Francisco with Quinn. Ridge admits that it is Erics idea. Liam assumes it is just the two of them. Liam feels that it is just too convenient to be true. Ridge guesses that Eric thinks they need to spend some time together. Liam guesses that it is just to ironic. Liam guesses that his plan is really happening. Ridge is going to go through with it tonight. Liam knows that Ridge and Quinn will be speaking at a design expo. There is not a lot of down time. Ridge will have to improvise. Liam asks what that means. Ridge will do whatever he has to do in order to get Quinn to expose herself. Liam hopes that it is within reason. Ridge isnt going to cross any lines. Liam is glad. Considering that he is engaged to Brooke and Brooke has no idea. Ridge thanks him for reminding him of that. He thinks that Brooke will understand.

There is nothing he can do to disappoint him. Eric wants her to get going. Quinn will call as soon as she lands. She loves Eric. She kisses him. Eric loves her too.
Thomas knows that just as she gets settled in his loft he comes home and cramps her style. Steffy thinks it is fine. She isnt there that much anyway. Thomas is glad that means that she can sleep on the couch. Steffy doesnt do couches. Liam walks back in. Wyatt asks where he went. He got a text and just took off. Liam informs him that he used to work here and there are people who value his opinion. Wyatt suggests they look into getting rid of those people. Thomas really missed the two of them. Liam wonders if he and Caroline are still trying to work things out. Thomas tells him that they are. They should see Douglas. He is huge and handsome. Steffy misses her nephew.

Later on Wyatt thinks that is an odd pairing. Ridge cannot even stand Quinn. Liam guesses that Eric thought it would be a good idea. Wyatt wonders why. Liam guesses to mend things. Wyatt knows that will never happen. Liam thinks that he would be surprised at some of the things that can happen. Wyatt is shocked he didnt go to Erics with Steffy and Thomas. Liam knows that Thomas just got back into town. He wonders why he would go with them. Wyatt doesnt know. He doesnt seem to let Steffy out of his sight lately. He is following her around like he has a tracking device on her. Wyatt knows what he is doing. Liam thinks he is freaking out. Wyatt isnt stupid. Liam asks if he sees Steffy complaining. Wyatt thought that he was supposed to be working at Spencer. He assumes that Bill must wonder where he is sometimes. Liam tells him that Bill doesnt keep him on the leash like some people. Apparently, Eric is the one holding the leash now. Wyatt has been so busy lately that he forgot how annoying he is. Liam thinks that if Quinn and Ridge can survive a trip together then they can survive an afternoon together. Wyatt thinks that Ridge and Quinn together is a bad idea.
Eric feels that since Thomas and Caroline share a son. It would be nice if they can work things out. Thomas tells him that they are giving it a shot but he doesnt know what the future holds for them. Eric thinks they are incredible parents. He misses Thomas. Thomas misses him too. He also misses the CEO right here. Eric thinks that Steffy is doing a great job. Thomas is sure of it but he is feeling a little overlooked. Eric is sure that his time has come. He needs him to design right now. Thomas wants to know how Ridge is dealing with all of this. With Steffy running the company and Quinn being so involved. He cannot be happy. Eric knows he isnt very happy. Steffy thinks that is putting it mildly. Eric explains that Ridge will put his frustrations out on Quinn. Thomas asks why he would send them on a trip together. Steffy isnt so sure that was the best idea.
Backstage at the fashion expo Quinn and Ridge put on microphones. Quinn looks very nervous. A woman comes up to them and is so happy they were able to attend on such short notice. Quinn explains that they are not married. She is married to his father. The woman explains that none of that will happen tonight. Another woman comes over and tells them that they are ready to start. They will have them go over to the green room. Ridge asks if she is ok. Quinn isnt much of a public speaker. Quinn hopes that these people are all fans. She isnt normally this anxious. Ridge thinks that nothing bad can happen unless she wants it too. She is in control.
Liam asks what could possibly go wrong on the trip. It isnt like Quinn has ever done anything to embarrass him. Wyatt asks why Eric didnt send Steffy and him. He wants to know why it had to be Ridge and Quinn. Liam told him that Eric wanted them to learn to get along. Wyatt thinks that has to be awkward. They couldnt have done a whole lot on the plane. Liam is sure that there are a number of things they could have done. Wyatt points out that it is almost dinner time. Steffy probably isnt going to come back to the office anytime soon so he can probably go home. Liam asks why he assumes everything he does involves Steffy. Wyatt thinks that Liam is obsessed with his wife. Liam feels that is only legally. Wyatt tells Liam that they are married. Liam reminds him that is only until the divorce goes through. Wyatt points out there is a chance it never will.
Thomas will never get used to the picture of Quinn. Steffy wont either. Thomas asks if there have been any updates. Eric hasnt gotten any texts from Quinn since they landed. Steffy hopes that they dont embarrass him and go at it in public. Thomas would hope that it doesnt get physical. Eric knows that it is no secret that they do not get along. They are both adults though. This is business. He is sure that they will behave appropriately. He knows that Quinn would like nothing better than for them to get along. Thomas knows that he seems hopeful. Eric feels that after today Quinn can prove to the world who she really is. After that she will be welcomed with open arms. Steffy hopes that it goes well but they need to remember who they both are. They are both strong winded people.
Quinn explains to the room that she started off in downtown LA. She was making jewelry in a warehouse making it with her son. They struggled for years to get off the ground. They built up their little business. They were doing ok. That is when Forrester Creations called though. She was blown away. To be designing for such a company. A company created by an extraordinary family. A family that she had admired for such a long time. She thought it was the pinnacle of her career. It wasnt though. Life kept giving her new challenges. She was even CEO for a short time when Eric fell ill. Even though it was a difficult time with the help and support of her family she was able to survive. She even had a little fun with it. Ridge knows she did. She did the jewelry pass. That was fun and she was wearing his show shopper. The host of the event asks if Ridge wasnt a fan. Ridge admits he wasnt. He wasnt happy about it at all. If he is being truthful he thinks the two of them do not really get along. Quinn tries to stop him but Ridge thinks it is true. They are two artists with two different visions. They make one vision that works for both. He realizes that he owes Quinn an apology. The jewelry pass was a good idea. He didnt see it at the time. The show stopper wasnt designed for her but she was flawless. He is using a lot of words to say something simple. Quinn is a force to be recon with. Quinn thanks him. She thanks them all. She was so honored to be here with them today. As a proud member of the fashion community she feels welcomed and truly accepted. Just as everyone in this room she has worked her life to get where she is. She thinks that it is an honor to be sharing a stage with a brilliant designer like Ridge Forrester. In Ridges head he tells Quinn that it will all end for Quinn that night.
