Katie: (Sighs) (Whispers) Oh, Mom. (Normal voice) why wouldn't you talk to me on the phone last night? Why aren't you here? I need you so much.

Jackie: (Sighs)

Woman: Mr. Marone, can I get you anything?

Nick: No, thank you. I'm fine.

Woman: Miss Marone?

Jackie: I'm fine, too. Thank you. (Sighs) and thank you for letting me fly with you.

Nick: You said you had business in Paris. You do have business in Paris?

Jackie: Yes, I do. In fact, it's gonna keep me there a few days.

Nick: You gonna be coming back with me?

Jackie: No. (Sighs) Nicky, I have to ask you this again.

Nick: No, you don't.

Jackie: Yes, I do. This plan of yours-- do you really think it's wise just dropping in on Beth Logan without any warning?

Nick: I'm not going there to be wise, Mother. I have a couple questions to ask-- why she missed her son's funeral and why she ignored the fact that her daughter almost died.

(Indistinct conversations)

Rick: (Breathing heavily) (groans) (grunts) Pretty nice out here, huh?

Marcus: Oh, yeah. It's something else. I mean, not a-- not a bad view either.

Rick: Yeah. I guess if I wasn't engaged, I would definitely have something to say about that.

Marcus: Oh. Well, congratulations, I guess.

Rick: Thank you.

Marcus: It must be tough, though, being engaged with all these, uh, beautiful models around.

Rick: You obviously haven't met my fiancée. If you knew Taylor, you wouldn't be saying that.

Marcus: So when did Forrester open this up?

Rick: Uh, this week, actually.

Marcus: Oh. Not a bad use of the roof, I'll tell you that.

Rick: Mnh-mnh. This is actually my stepmother's brainchild.

Marcus: Oh, she work here?

Rick: She does. Well, she's, um, yeah. I mean, she's married to, uh, the boss.

Marcus: The boss? Oh, Eric Forrester?

Rick: Mm-hmm. Eric's my dad, and he is married to Donna, who is actually my aunt.

Marcus: So that makes you a Forrester?

Rick: It does. And you are a...

Marcus: Walton.

Rick: (Laughs)

Marcus: Marcus Walton.

Rick: Nice to meet you, man.

Marcus: How you doing, man? It's crazy.

Rick: What was that?

Marcus: Oh, I said this place. I mean, it's--it's wow.

Rick: So you're new here?

Marcus: Yeah, I work in shipping and receiving.

Rick: (Laughs)

Marcus: But I wouldn't mind having, uh, a job here, though. I mean, the place rocks.

Rick: It does, yeah. Unfortunately, not everybody thinks so.

Marcus: Oh.

Rick: Speaking of which... hey, Ridge.

Ridge: Rick.

Rick: Have you met Marcus?

Ridge: Yes, I have. Hello, Marcus.

Marcus: Mr. Forrester.

Rick: We were just talking about how popular this place is up here.

Ridge: Yeah, indeed it is.

Rick: Ridge is not a fan.

Ridge: I'm just not a big fan of the way it came about.

Marcus: And how did it come about, sir?

Ridge: Donna Logan. You've met her, of course. She pretty much threw this together without consulting anyone.

Rick: Yeah, but she consulted dad, and he approved, and that's all that really matters because he is the boss. Personally, I think it's a brilliant idea.

Ridge: Oh, no one's questioning the concept, Rick, but there's protocol. Would you have organized a project like this without talking with the family at all, huh?

Rick: Well, I--

Ridge: Didn't think so.

Marcus: (Clears throat)

Rick: Hey, Mom.

Brooke: Hey, everybody.

Ridge: Hey, there, sweetie.

Brooke: Hey.

Ridge: Hey.

Brooke: Mm.

Ridge: So how was, uh, Katie this morning?

Brooke: Oh, uh, she sounded okay over the phone.

Rick: Just okay?

Brooke: Well, physically, she's doing much better. (Sighs)

Ridge: Is she still upset about your mom?

Brooke: Very.

Nick: It's mysterious, bizarre, absurd-- a lot of things to describe this woman's behavior.

Jackie: She hasn't always been like this, has she?

Nick: No. According to the kids, while they were growing up, she was a great mother.

Jackie: Yeah, well, that's certainly not the case now, is it?

Nick: No. Something's going on. It's almost as though the real Beth Logan's disappeared.

Ridge: That doesn't sound like Beth. Staying away from all of you? Not contacting any of you?

Brooke: When Katie called her, mom said that she had guests and that she couldn't talk. So she cut the conversation short.

Ridge: She never called back?

Brooke: No.

Ridge: That's fairly odd, isn't it?

Rick: Well, maybe she just needed some space and time.

Brooke: She lives in Paris. She has 5,000 miles of space. And this whole thing just has Katie really torn up.

Ridge: There's got to be some explanation.

Brooke: I know. That's what I keep saying, but... (sighs) I-I just don't understand why mom could be so cold to Katie. I mean, she was on her deathbed, for God sakes. She practically had to beg for attention from mom.

Ridge: Hmm.

Brooke: I'm gonna go visit her.

Rick: Mom, could you give Katie my regards, please?

Brooke: Yeah, but it would be nice if her nephew stopped by to visit her.

Rick: Okay. Yes, I will go see her after work, I promise.

Brooke: Okay.

Ridge: Give her a big hug from all of us. Tell her to be patient with her mom. There's got to be some kind of simple explanation for all of this. I'll see you later?

Brooke: Yeah.

Ridge: Okay.

Brooke: Thanks.

Ridge: You're welcome.

Jackie: Well, you are certainly extremely involved in this Beth Logan business, aren't you?

Nick: Yes, I am.

Jackie: And yet you've never even met the woman.

Nick: True.

Jackie: Does Bridget know you're taking this trip?

Nick: She knows I'm taking a trip.

Jackie: Aha. So you'd rather Bridget didn't know that you were doing this for Katie?

Nick: I am doing this for Katie, but I'm not hiding anything, mother. The woman's suffering, and I'm gonna help her.

Jackie: Then why isn't Brooke taking this trip, or--or Donna? I mean, after all, she's their mother.

Nick: (Sighs) I didn't ask them.

Jackie: And yet you're willing to just drop everything, travel halfway around the world for Katie Logan? To me, that says a great deal.

Brooke: How you feeling? No more symptoms?

Katie: Uh, I'm still a little weak, but, uh, no pain, thanks to Bridget.

Brooke: Oh, good. She's the best.

Katie: Yeah.

Brooke: And what about--

Katie: What?

Brooke: (Sighs) Honey.

Katie: (Sighs) You know, you think you can trust someone. Certainly, you're supposed to trust your mom. But I could have so easily died, and it's like she doesn't even care.

Brooke: (Sighs)

Katie: (Sighs)

Ridge: You're missing the point, Rick. This isn't about ousting dad from the company. It's about protecting him and the company.

Rick: You see, I'm--I'm hearing you. I'm just--I'm not feeling that.

Ridge: Well, that's your problem, isn't it?

Rick: No, it's not my problem. It's your problem. You are trying to undercut dad, and you're using his wife to do it.

Ridge: I have the facts on my side, Rick. Have you seen the sales reports?

Rick: (Laughs)

Ridge: Have you seen the magazine reviews of the recent line-- "Donna is an albatross." I'm not the only one saying this. That lady's gonna bring us down. She's gonna bring the company down if we don't do something about it.

Rick: No, see, those aren't facts. What you said right there, that is speculation.

Ridge: Take a look around, Rick. Have any idea how much this lounge fiasco cost?

Rick: I have no idea.

Ridge: A bundle. In a time when we're having a sales slump, when the economy's in the dumps? This is not the time to have an expenditure like this. This wouldn't have even made it past the board. Of course, Donna didn't even bother to go to the board, did she?

Rick: Listen to me. She's got a lot of pressure on her, okay, from you. She's just trying--she's trying to make her mark, you know, make a good impression.

Ridge: Look, all we're doing is just keeping an eye on her.

Rick: (Laughs) really? It's a damn witch-hunt, and you know it. So why don't you just call it the way it is?

Ridge: Okay, it's a witch-hunt.

Rick: Thank you.

Ridge: And if there are no witches, I'll be the first to apologize to Donna right in front of the whole company.

Rick: (Laughs) I'm gonna hold you to that.

Ridge: You do that.

Rick: Good.

Ridge: But I'm telling you, the woman has something to hide.

Rick: We all have secrets, man.

Ridge: Well, if I had one that was gonna bring this company down, I'd leave before that happened. But not Donna, no. No, not Donna. She doesn't give a damn about Forrester Creations. She doesn't give a damn about the legacy our father built, a legacy you and I have dedicated our life to, Rick. God, I don't even believe we're having this conversation.

Rick: Neither can I. It's an exercise in your paranoia.

Ridge: We'll see, won't we? You mark my words. There's a ticking time bomb in Donna's past. It'll surface. And when it does, Donna's marriage to dad will come crashing down. I just hope to God it doesn't take Forrester with it.

Katie: I just keep thinking back to when we were kids. Mom was always our protector, you know? She--I trusted that I could count on her. I never questioned it. Maybe I should have.

Brooke: Katie, mom is everything you always thought she was. She loves you.

Katie: This doesn't seem like love to me, Brooke.

Brooke: (Sighs)

Katie: Whatever. You know, I'm a-- I'm a big girl, right? I don't need my mother. I'm an adult. I can take care of myself.

Brooke: Was she really that cold to you on the phone?

Katie: She wasn't anything. She was--she was nothing. No feeling, no concern. I mean, she talked about the weather. If--if I had died that night, I think she couldn't have cared less. And I-I'm sure she would have rushed right over here to go to my funeral like she did Storm's. I just don't understand this, Brooke. I don't understand this at all.

Nick: In all honesty, mother, you're right. I have dropped everything to help Katie in this situation. If you would have seen how devastated this girl was after she hung up with her mother, you'd be doing the same thing.

Jackie: (Scoffs) That is so cruel. (Sighs) it's a good thing that Katie has her sisters and Bridget to keep her together. Although I suspect what's actually keeping her together right now is you.

Nick: Mother, please.

Jackie: Oh, honey. I mean, it's no surprise that she's developed feelings for you after everything that you've done for her. And she is so sweet. She's so sincere and courageous. Of course you've got feelings for her. If Bridget weren't in the picture, I'd--

Nick: Bridget is in the picture, mother. It's a good thing. Because if it weren't for her, Katie wouldn't be around.

Katie: I have a lot going on in the inside. Most of it doesn't make me feel like laughing.

Nick: I'm aware of that.

Katie: There is one bright spot, though. It gives me hope, makes me feel like I have a life that's worth living. I don't need taking care of. I can take care of myself. I'm not an invalid, not yet. I'm fine. I feel fine. I don't feel sick. I don't feel like... (sighs) (voice cracks) and what's the worst that can happen?

Nick: (Sighs) (voice cracking) What kind of prom date would I be if... (clears throat) if I didn't see you home?

Katie: Oh. You look so beautiful in your new no mess cap.

Ridge: It's time for me to get back to work.

Rick: Good. Oh, by the way, Taylor-- she sends her regards.

Ridge: How's the baby? I heard he was spending more time with Taylor now.

Rick: Spending more time with us. Yes, Jack is doing great. He couldn't be happier.

Ridge: Glad to hear that. All right, champ, let's get goin'. That shipment from P.I. Came in.

Marcus: I'm on it.

Ridge: A word of advice-- I know you're Donna's pet project, but it doesn't mean you can phone it in.

Marcus: Don't worry. I won't.

Ridge: Last piece of advice-- don't get too close to Donna Logan. Not a smart move.

Marcus: Bye, man.

Rick: Take care. Nice to meet you.

Marcus: You, too.

Brooke: (Sighs) So was your senior prom as special as I heard it was?

Katie: Yeah, it was. Nick is amazing. I'll never forget it. But it was just a moment, and now it's over.

Brooke: I'm glad he was there for you, Katie.

Katie: This is so hard, Brooke.

Brooke: What?

Katie: I know that-- that everyone's been amazing, but I--

Brooke: Go on.

Katie: I've been given my life back, and I-I guess I just have to figure out what it is I want to do with it. I feel like I've lived my life so carefully, never wanting to jump in and just see what happens, and I look around and I realize that I've got so many people who love and care for me, but I'm really alone. (Sighs) I-I'm not feeling sorry for myself. It's just that I'm an independent woman. I-I just wish that--

Brooke: What do you wish?

Katie: I miss my mom. It's silly. Sometimes a girl needs her mom. I miss her.

Brooke: Me, too.

(Knock on door)

Beth: Oui?

Nick: It's Nick Marone.

Beth: Can I help you?

Nick: It's me. Nick... Marone.

Beth: Oh, Nick. Oh, of course. W-well, this is a surprise.

Nick: I imagine it would be. Nice to finally meet you face-to-face after all these years.

Beth: Yes.

Nick: Do you mind if I come in?

Beth: Oh, uh, please.

Nick: Thank you. As you know, I'm close with your family. Actually, your daughters, especially Katie.

Beth: Yes, well, I would, uh, I would love to sit and chat with you, Nick, but I have an appointment.

Nick: Well, you're gonna have to cancel that.

Beth: What?

Nick: You heard me.

Beth: Well, I can't.

Nick: I'm afraid you're gonna have to, 'cause I'm not leavin'.

Beth: Nick-- Mr. Marone, please-- I would--I would like you to go.

Nick: Not gonna happen, Beth.

Beth: Do I have to call the police?

Nick: Well, maybe you should consider me the police, 'cause I got some questions.

Beth: I have no answers for you.

Nick: Well, I don't believe that. I want to know why you're in Paris after what's happened to your family. Your son's dead. Your daughter's struggling to survive after a heart transplant, courageously hanging on every day, and she calls you, and she asks you to be there for her, and you basically hang up, and I'd like to know why. I'd like to know why you did that. I'd like to know how you could do that. I'd like to know how any mother could do that. Now I've come a long way for one thing-- the truth. And I'm not going anywhere till I get it.
