Rick: Taylor, we're running out of excuses. You can't deny it anymore. We're in love.

Taylor: Rick.

Rick: Listen to me. It's time that we show each other.

Brooke: Ridge, I understand it's a little difficult right now, but you aren't actually reconsidering our engagement, are you?

Ridge: Logan, I love you. You know that. We both still want our dream life to become a reality. But we're trapped in a very difficult situation here. Between your attachment for Jack and now your--your concern for Bridget and Nick, this is no time to be rushing into another marriage, not when you have these divided feelings.

Brooke: So what are you saying? I mean, you'd rather be with somebody else, perhaps somebody you were previously engaged to?

Ridge: Oh, Brooke, come on.

Brooke: Well, are you regretting breaking things off with Ashley? I mean, after all, I did hear you talking about our problems and our life. What am I supposed to think?

Ridge: Ashley was just trying to help me sort through things. That's-- you admitted the pull that Nick and his child have on you. Brooke, this is not the time for us to rush into a marriage, not when you have these feelings for Nick.

Brooke: I-I... (sighs) I don't have feelings for Nick.

Ridge: Yes, you do. Be honest.

Brooke: For the child, yes.

Ridge: Look, when I first heard that you were Jack's biological mother, I asked you-- I-I practically begged you not to get involved in all that. Concentrate, focus on us, on Hope and R.J. that was the only way we were gonna ever make this work. But you insisted on infusing yourself into Jack's life.

Brooke: Ridge, I'm always going to have a connection to Jack. But that doesn't change the way that I feel about you, about our family. Nothing, and I mean nothing, is going to change my commitment to you, to us, to our future. I love you so much. And no matter what obstacles we face, I still believe that you are my destiny.

Ridge: I love you. I just want to be sure. I want to be sure, Brooke.

Brooke: I'm sure.

Rick: Phoebe has to go to a-a last-minute photo shoot, leaving us here, the two of us alone. I can't leave here without showing you how much I love you. I can't.

Taylor: Yes, yes, yes, you have to leave. I want you to leave now, please.

Rick: Taylor, it's crazy to think that tonight was about Phoebe. Yes, maybe before it--it--it could have worked, but not now, not anymore.

Taylor: (Sighs) Rick, actually, I'm glad you're here right now. I'm glad you're here, because I can look you in the eyes, and I can tell you that now that I know that Phoebe has these feelings for you, I-I just--I can't be with you.

Rick: Stop. Just-- can you stop saying that, please? Yes, Phoebe is--she's beautiful. She's very talented. She's--she's smart. But I'm not in love with her. I'm in love with you.

Taylor: (Sighs)

Ridge: What about legal? Have we heard whether we can clear belief for Ashley's new fragrance?

Thorne: Soon. I'm expecting a memo as soon as there's any word.

Phoebe: Knock-knock. Hey.

Ridge: Hey, kiddo. How are you doing?

Phoebe: I'm--I'm good. I'm just a little confused. I was called down for a last-minute photo shoot, and I got to the gallery, and no one's there. I mean, there's no set, no staff or anything.

Thorne: (Sighs) Sorry about that, Phoebe. The shoot has been postponed. Someone should have called you.

Phoebe: I rushed down here for nothing?

Ridge: Actually, Thorne and I are meeting with the fragrance department, and we would love your input on your namesake Phoebe fragrance.

Phoebe: Dad, you know I'm always happy to help. I just-- it's--it's a really bad time. I was in the middle of dinner, actually.

Ridge: What are you doing?

Phoebe: Texting. Maybe I can still catch him.

Ridge: Him? Sweetie, you don't have to text anyone. We're not gonna be that long. And besides, if this him is worthwhile, he'll be there waiting for you when you get back.

Ashley: Aah! Hi. You startled me.

Brooke: I know what you're doing, Ashley.

Ashley: Really? You know that I'm extracting an essential oil by evaporating the organic solvent? Who told you that?

Brooke: You're circling him. You're still in love with Ridge.

Ashley: What are you talking about?

Brooke: Well, maybe you better be a little more careful next time you decide to profess your love to somebody else's fiancÚ.

Ashley: Ohh. Love never entered into that conversation, not one time.

Brooke: Really?

Ashley: Mm-hmm, really.

Brooke: So you didn't tell him that I was sick, that he should cut his losses?

Ashley: Actually, I did tell him that. And I would give anybody the same advice, because he deserves to be treated better. I can only hope, for his own sake, that he listens.

Brooke: Well, now you should listen to me. No, Ridge and I aren't married yet, but we sure as hell are going to be, no matter how much you try to interfere. So just back off. Why don't you just stay in your lab and play with your little test tubes...

Ashley: (Laughs)

Brooke: And stay away from Ridge. 'Cause I know you're clinging to some kind of hope that you're gonna get back together with Ridge. But I don't want you to set yourself up for heartache and disappointment, the same kind of heartache that you felt when Ridge broke off your engagement so that he could be with me.

Rick: Taylor, how could one dinner with Phoebe possibly compare to my feelings for you?

Taylor: Well, you're not supposed to have those feelings.

Rick: Well, you know what? I do. And they're really not going anywhere.

Taylor: Then just give it some time, all right? Listen, I've had way too much drama in my life, and I don't need anymore right now. (Sighs) From the very beginning, you've been there for me, and I appreciate everything you've done. You've been wonderful. But I think that maybe everything that was supposed to happen between us that this is as far as it goes, because now we found out that Phoebe still has feelings for you. And I don't want to be like your mother.

Rick: Wh--stop. Don't do that. Do not compare our situation to what's going on with my mom and Bridget. It's not the same thing. Taylor, I haven't--I haven't seen Phoebe in months, okay? She shouldn't have any expectations. I came here tonight, because I got a letter, and I thought the letter was from you asking me to come here and-- I'm sorry. I have to tell Phoebe what's going on between us. And I'll let her down gently, but she's just gonna have to understand.

Taylor: No, she would never understand what's going on between us. As much as I feel for you, I have a greater loyalty to my daughter. I'm not going to betray her.

Phoebe: Mom?

Taylor: Phoebe's here. Go.

Rick: God.

Taylor: She's coming upstairs.

Phoebe: Hey, am--am I interrupting? It sounded like you were talking to someone. ...

Taylor: Oh, hi, honey. How are you?

Phoebe: Hey, a-a-do you have a guest or something?

Taylor: Why would you-- oh, you know what? I had, um, I was checking my voice mail, and I had to return one of my patient's calls and deal with his relationship crisis. That's probably what that was.

Phoebe: You're sure you're okay?

Taylor: I am. Fine. I'm fine. How was the, um, photo shoot?

Phoebe: It was cancelled, actually.

Taylor: You're kidding?

Phoebe: Yeah, I got all the way down there to find out it was rescheduled. Wait, how--how did you know I was at a shoot? It doesn't matter, because I have to tell you Rick and I had the best night tonight. I mean, candles and a great conversation. I mean, it was an amazing dinner, even--even though it was cut short.

Taylor: Well, it sounds like it was fun, though. It sounds great.

Phoebe: You know, I've been realizing recently how much I-I still care about Rick, you know? And seeing how much he supported you, it just reminded me all over again why I fell in love with him in the first place, you know?

Taylor: Mm-hmm. Yeah, he--he's--he's a great guy.

Phoebe: And not to mention how gorgeous he is. You know, but it's--it's more than that, of course. I mean, since the breakup and--and going to college, I've--I've dated other guys, you know, and I've grown up a lot. I-I've learned more about love and--and relationships. I just--I feel like I have so much more to offer him than I did before. I know I'm getting ahead of myself, but I think he feels the same way.

Taylor: Well, I'm happy for you. You know I love you. I just--I don't want to see you get hurt.

Phoebe: I know. Of course I know that, mom. You've always been there for me, and I know you always will be. I'm glad you're back to yourself.

Taylor: Yeah, me, too.

Phoebe: (Laughs) Good night. I love you.

Taylor: Yeah, good night.

Phoebe: Mmm.

Taylor: Mmm, I love you.

Phoebe: Bye.

Taylor: Now do you see why nothing can go on between us?

Rick: (Sighs)

Thorne: It's unbelievable how much the fragrance line has brought to Forrester, Ridge.

Ridge: Yeah, well, Ashley's the genius behind its success. She also mentioned the possibility of advertising the fragrance in the online component of "Restless style."

Thorne: Hmm. Well, that sounds good to me. I'll see what Katie thinks. You know, I have to say I'm glad that Ashley's a part of this company. She's been a real asset.

Ridge: Oh, yeah. She is one incredible woman, all right.

Brooke: I'm not saying I don't understand your feelings for Ridge, because I do. He's truly an amazing man. However, I don't want you to think that Ridge and I aren't getting married, because you'd only be setting yourself up for a fall. And I don't want to see you hurt again.

Ashley: Oh, you're so interesting. You basically want me to respect your engagement the way you respected mine, I mean, the way you're respecting your own engagement to Ridge by continually involving yourself in Nick's life? Could you please just pick a man, you know? I mean, pick a man, any man.

Brooke: You know, you speak about respect. And no matter how different we are, Ashley, I truly do respect you. You're a talent that this company could not do without, and you're very sweet. You're very caring. I really do appreciate how you speak your mind. And I believe if it weren't for Ridge, you and I could possibly be friends.

Ashley: We even want the same thing, right? What's best for Ridge. We just obviously have a different opinion on what that looks like.

Brooke: I really wish nothing but the best for you and your daughter. I truly do. But the best for you is not Ridge. I can promise you that.

Brooke: Hey, you.

Ridge: Hey, yourself. Come on in. Thorne and I just got through looking over some reports from the fragrance division. Guess what? It looks like belief's gonna be the next big thing.

Brooke: Ohh.

Ridge: That is if legal would just clear the name.

Brooke: Oh-ho-ho, how ironic. Remember when you and I came up with the belief formula...

Ridge: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: How excited we were?

Ridge: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: And we made love right there on the lab floor. Mmm.

Ridge: Yeah. It's too bad mother had a camera, huh?

Brooke: Ohh, please don't bring up your mother.

Ridge: Ohh.

Brooke: But remember those things that I used to wear?

Ridge: I remember the famous Logan lingerie.

Brooke: Mmm. Do you think that I still look good in the famous Logan lingerie?

Brooke: (Giggles) You know what our problem is, Ridge? We've been doing too much talking. Now we need to just start feeling.

Ridge: Yes...

Brooke: (Giggling)

Ridge: Feeling is good. Feeling is very, very good.

Brooke: Mm-hmm. No talking.

Ridge: Okay.

Brooke: Just feeling...

Ridge: Mmm.

Brooke: Feeling. Mmm. Mmm. Feeling. Mmm. Mmm. Mm.

(Phone beeps)

Brooke: You're not gonna get that, are you?

Ridge: I'm busy.

Brooke: Yeah. Mm-hmm. (Beeps)

Ridge: Ohh, damn. (Groans) what?!

Brooke: (Sighs)

Ridge: Oh, no! I forgot. I forgot. Okay, I'll be there in a few minutes.

Brooke: You're leaving?

Ridge: A meeting. Somehow I got very distracted and forgot all about it. Ashley and Henry are meeting me in the conference room. I gotta do this.

Brooke: (Laughs) Wait, you're leaving me for a meeting with Ashley?

Ridge: (Sighs heavily) It can't be helped.

Brooke: Well, I was hoping that I could convince you to have a meeting of our own.

Ridge: Mmm. Maybe later, but right now I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Brooke: Yeah, me, too.

Ridge: By the way, you in that lingerie-- outstanding. Outstanding.

Brooke: Yeah, yeah. (Exhales deeply)

Brooke: (Sighs heavily)

Storm: Hey, Ridge, I heard you were working late, so I, uh, whoa. Speaking of working late-- well, I just had a couple of papers for Ridge to sign. Sorry.

Brooke: Yeah, well, I don't think Ridge will be back here tonight.

Storm: Oh, well, in that case, here you go.

Brooke: (Sighs)

Storm: You all right?

Brooke: Everything was going so well.

Storm: Yeah, I can tell.

Brooke: Yeah. And then Ridge had to run out for a meeting with Ashley. I told her to find a life of her own and stay out of mine.

Storm: You're referring to Ashley Abbott?

Brooke: Ashley is trying to steal my fiancÚ away. I need to deal with her, Storm. I need to get her out of my life once and for all. And I think I know just how to do it. I'm gonna need your help.

Storm: (Chuckles)

Taylor: I mean it, Rick. I am not going to hurt my daughter. This cannot happen, okay? I'm not trying to hurt you. It has to be over.

Taylor: Come here.

Taylor: I know I couldn't have gotten through these last few weeks if it hadn't been for you. And I love you for that. But this isn't going to happen. It has to end.

Rick: Taylor, please, don't do this.

Taylor: You will always be right here in my heart. Okay?

Rick: Taylor--

Taylor: It's over. It's over.

Rick: (Sighs)

Rick: Like hell it is.

Taylor: (Exhales deeply)

Ridge: Your brother is a loose cannon, Brooke. We cannot let him get involved with anyone.

Ashley: You have a wicked sense of humor. I wouldn't want to get on your bad side.

Pam: I pulled the little switcheroo on Eric's precious performance pills.

Donna: She goes in for the kill, and she pounces. (Growls)

Eric: (Snoring)

Donna: Eric?
