Thorne: Hey, Dad.

Eric: Thorne. Good. Hi.

Thorne: How's this?

Eric: Oh, wonderful. Good.

Thorne: 20 of them, right? And you want me to ship them to your room in New York City?

Eric: Uh, Marcus is taking care of that. No prob--well, here he is now. Marcus, these are the packages that we're gonna get down to shipping.

Marcus: All right.

Thorne: I'll handle it.

Marcus: Well, I-I already have a number two padded and foamed, sir. Air freight will be here in an hour.

Eric: Insurance?

Marcus: Taken care of.

Eric: Good. I don't want anything to happen to these, all right? I'm giving one to every one of our distributors there at the fund-raiser.

Marcus: I arranged it with V.I.P. Services.

Eric: Well, good. It's--we're very impressed with this young man, are we not?

Thorne: Hmm. Working your way up the corporate ladder, hey, Marcus?

Eric: You keep doing the job you're doing, and that could easily happen, my boy.

Thorne: If his mom has anything to say about it, it will. Anyway, why are you giving 20 of these away?

Eric: A little P.R. never hurt, you know?

Thorne: A little P.R.?

Eric: Yeah.

Thorne: You go to this event every year. You've never even given one gown away.

Eric: Yeah, well this year's a little bit different-- the economy, you know?

Thorne: The economy?

Eric: Look, we've taken a big hit this year. Every fashion house has.

Thorne: We've taken a bigger hit than most.

Eric: And your point? Hello, darling.

Donna: Hello.

Thorne: Come on, Marcus. Maybe you can show me where shipping is.

Donna: Oh, bye, Marcus.


Eric: How's my girl? How you doing?

Donna: Mmm.

Eric: Mmm.

Donna: Okay.

Eric: Yeah?

Donna: But, um, why-- why didn't you tell me you were going to New York without me?

Eric: Oh, I'm sorry, honey. Look, I'm gonna be so busy. I'll make it up to you when I get back. I promise.

Donna: Well, why don't you make it up to me tonight before you leave? Give you something to think about on the plane.

Eric: On the plane? I'm thinking about it now.

Donna: (Giggles)

Eric: (Laughs) No, I can't. I can't. I'm leaving from here. The--the car's down in the parking lot right now.

Donna: We're not even gonna have any alone time before you leave?

Felicia: Aah. Piece of work, isn't she?

Owen: Hello, Felicia.

Felicia: So you're here studying your prey, I see.

Owen: I wish you wouldn't talk about her like that.

Felicia: (Sighs) What the hell is wrong with you? You know what I want.

Owen: Yeah, I know what you want. You want incriminating photos.

Felicia: Of you and the bimbo.

Owen: She's your father's wife.

Felicia: She is my father's worst mistake, Owen.

Owen: Well, he loves her.

Felicia: Yeah, well, you know what? He loved my mother. They had a wonderful family together.

Owen: Well, so you really think that if we split them up that your parents will get back together?

Felicia: That's why it's worth $200,000 to me to get her out of his life, because I know that if they're split up, my father will go back to my mother because he still loves her. I know it.

Owen: Well, he married Donna.

Felicia: Yeah, I know. You know, Owen, I don't know what kind of family you grew up in, so maybe it seems really... (laughs) strange and foolish to you that a grown woman is so committed to getting her parents back together, but there is something just so wrong about my dad's relationship with Donna. No good can come from it, okay? I feel it from the bottom of my soul so I want him out of it as soon as possible before anybody else gets hurt. Don't go soft on me now. Donna doesn't come out empty-handed, okay? I mean, she comes out with a big fat divorce settlement, and you come out with a big fat check. So it's a win-win situation for everybody. We had a deal. Please tell me you're still with me. (Whispers) Please.

Owen: You know what? A woman like her... she doesn't belong with that old guy anyway. I'm with ya.

Felicia: Yeah?

Owen: You're gonna get what you want.

Felicia: Yeah. Thank you. Thank you.

Marcus: See, I was... Owen? What are you still doing here, man?

Owen: Oh, hey, you don't know? I work here now.

Steffy: Since when?

Owen: Well, since Donna hired me to on to be her new assistant.

Brooke: So then we head east on the 10 and north on the 14. Then we turn left and head out to the desert.

Ridge: Where we, um...

Brooke: Where we stop for the night and camp out under the stars, and we make love every time we see a comet.

Ridge: Ooh, I heard there's a meteor shower happening.

Brooke: Mmm. You think you can handle it? Ridge: With you? Hmm...

Brooke: (Giggles)

Ridge: You let those shooting stars fall wherever they want to.

Brooke: Mmm. Mm.

Ridge: But not tonight. Dad's gonna be leaving on a trip.

Brooke: So?

Ridge: I guess somebody's got to hold down the fort, as bad as business has been. But when he gets back...

Brooke: The meteor shower will still be happening.

Ridge: Trust me. You'll still see a lot of shooting stars.

Brooke: (Giggles)

Owen: I'm sorry. We haven't officially met. I'm Owen Knight.

Steffy: Steffy Forrester.

Marcus: So let me get this straight. You came here to collect the money I owe you, and now you're working for my mother?

Owen: Just at the right place at the right time, my man. Your mom got tired of that Pam always sticking it to her. I come here to collect my fee, and next thing you know, I got a job.

Marcus: Well, what about the job in San Diego?

Owen: Yeah, well, L.I. work's been pretty slow lately.

Steffy: L.I.?

Marcus: Yeah, he's a legal investigator. He's the one that helped me find my mother.

Steffy: Oh.

Owen: I'm also a paralegal.

Steffy: A man with many talents.

Marcus: Yes, obviously. Now he's a personal assistant.

Steffy: Hmm. (Pager beeps)

Marcus: Oh, the air freight company's here. I got to go deliver this package for Mr. Forrester. I'm gonna talk to you later, all right?

Steffy: Yeah. So, Owen, you seem like a pretty confident guy.

Owen: To be read-- full of myself?

Steffy: Well, I wouldn't put it that way, but it does seem interesting.

Owen: Oh, yeah? What's that?

Steffy: Well, you do appear to have hitched your wagon to Marcus, haven't you?

Ridge: Oh, Logan, it's times like this that makes me want to get up and just conquer the world...

Brooke: (Giggles)

Ridge: My world, a world of Forrester Creations.

Brooke: You've been there, done that.

Ridge: Not really. Logan, I want to run this company. Nothing against Dad. He's probably taught me just about everything I know about the business. And I feel very blessed to have worked side by side with my father.

Brooke: But?

Ridge: But I really feel like he'd be a lot happier if he just concentrated on designing instead of running the company.

Brooke: Well, it is kind of stressful for a man his age.

Ridge: Please, don't say that to his face.

Brooke: Although, now that he has a hot young wife, maybe it'll give him an extra 20 years.

Ridge: Logan, the company's not gonna be around in 20 years because of his hot young wife.

Brooke: Wait a minute. Eric got the company back because of Donna. She's the one who orchestrated the buy back from Nick.

Ridge: Okay, I'll give her that, but she should have stopped there. (Sighs) Logan, you gotta think of this as strictly business. Donna is not an asset to the company. That's just a fact. It has nothing to do with anybody's personal feelings about her.

Brooke: You know, if I didn't love you so much, I would accuse you of being a little disingenuous right now.

Ridge: What?!

Brooke: Yes. Because I happen to believe that this is all about personal feelings about Donna-- yours and your family's. (Sighs heavily) Oh, god. (Sighs)

Ridge: Is this the part where we're gonna get really angry at each other in about a minute?

Brooke: It's not my fault. I didn't bring up Donna's name. You did.

Ridge: (Groans) Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Yes, you did. All the stuff about Dad all of a sudden having a bunch of energy because of his hot young wife.

Brooke: (Scoffs)

Ridge: Hmm? Hmm?

Brooke: God, do you always have to win? (Scoffs)

Ridge: When you're the prize, you're damn right I do.

Brooke: Mmm. You monster. Make love to me. (Exhales)

Eric: There is nothing I would like more than to have some alone time with you right now before I go, but I can't. I have to go.

Donna: Well, then take me to New York.

Eric: Donna.

Donna: Look, I-I don't care if you're busy. I'll go to the meetings with you. We've always made a good team.

Eric: We're a wonderful team. We really are. But I can't take you, not this time. (Phone rings)

Eric: Yes? Stephanie, Hi. I'm glad you called me back. Look, I just wanted to let you know I'm gonna be gone tonight, probably the next night, as well. I just wanted to see how you're doing. Yeah, of course I'm concerned about you. All right, fine. Yes. All right, I'll call you when I get back. Bye. (Sighs)

Donna: You're--you're gone for a night, and you--you call your ex-wife?

Eric: Yeah. She's having a hard time. She needs our help.

Donna: No, Eric, your help, not mine. Why--why don't you just send Pam over there to take care of her beloved sister?

Eric: Pam is needed at the office.

Donna: Not by me. I, um, I have my own assistant now.

Eric: Oh, you hired somebody?

Donna: Yeah. Yeah. You know the, um, guy who tracked me down for Marcus?

Eric: Mm-hmm.

Donna: Well, he was a legal investigator, and when he heard about the job opening, he was interested and sincere.

Eric: Good. Then he can take care of all your needs.

Donna: No, Eric, what I need right now is my husband.

Owen: Hitched my wagon to Marcus? Yeah, I guess somebody could see it that way.

Steffy: But you don't?

Owen: No, it's not my style.

Steffy: What is your style?

Owen: Life is a gift to be enjoyed, and I'm just honoring the great giver by enjoying it.

Steffy: And you can enjoy that better in L.A. than San Diego?

Owen: I was looking to make a change in my life, and this works.

Steffy: Being Donna's assistant? I wonder if the great giver would approve of that.

Owen: (Laughs) Yeah, you're definitely a Forrester.

Steffy: Meaning?

Owen: It seems to me that Donna had a lot to lose by inviting her son into her life. And not only did she invite him, she embraced him. She gave him a job, brought him into the family. Well, at least she tried to anyways. I'd say that would make her a pretty amazing person.

Steffy: You know, you're one of the few that would say that.

Owen: Yeah. Well, maybe it's a good thing that she has an assistant like me, who hasn't already passed judgment.

Steffy: (Sighs)

Eric: You have to understand. I have to focus on the company, all right? I need to get people out there to understand that--that marrying you hasn't changed anything. Just because I he a beautiful new bride, it doesn't mean I've lost interest in Forrester Creations.

Donna: But why would they think that?

Eric: Well, they won't if you're not with me.

Donna: Oh, th--they're saying I-I'm a distraction?

Eric: I think you know how this industry is, how everybody talks, you know?

Donna: No, no, no, I don't. Wh--what are they saying?

Eric: It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter what they're saying.

Donna: No, obviously it--it does matter, otherwise you'd be taking me with you.

Eric: (Sighs)

Donna: Eric, please be honest with me. If we don't have that, we have nothing.

Eric: You're right. You're absolutely right. Look, there's a concern out there in the industry about our decline in sales.

Donna: What about them?

Eric: There's a feeling that our company has been hurt when I divorced Stephanie and when I married a younger woman. Now Donna, I know that's not true, but--

Donna: Th--th--they're saying it's--it's my fault? They're saying it's my fault? I-I was your--your inspiration. And now I'm--I'm a liability. I want you to read chapters five through ten tonight.

Brooke: What a perfect night.

Ridge: (Exhales)

Brooke: This is just what I needed.

Ridge: I'll tell you what I need.

Brooke: Hmm?

Ridge: I need--we need...

Brooke: Mm-hmm.

Ridge: To stop talking about getting married and just do it.

Brooke: (Laughs) You mean it?

Ridge: Yeah. And I'll tell ya the perfect place to do it. Forrester Creations in the main showroom.

Brooke: Oh, my god, Ridge. When?

Ridge: Uh, as soon as Dad gets back from New York.

Brooke: O-okay. Why the showroom, not that I'm complaining?

Ridge: Because it's the perfect place to sort of tell the world about our commitment to each other and to the company that you and I are gonna run.

Brooke: And what about your father?

Ridge: Dad's always got a place at Forrester. You and I just need to step up now.

Brooke: You think he'll go along with it?

Ridge: This time, yes, I do.

Brooke: (Laughs)

Brooke: Mmm.

Donna: So that's why you didn't tell me about this trip. You were protecting my feelings? (Scoffs) where is all this coming from, Eric, all this talk about me hurting the company?

Eric: Look, that's just the point. I-I don't believe it's true.

Donna: So who's saying it, besides Ridge and--and--and Thorne and the rest of your children?

Eric: That's why I'm going. I'm gonna talk to everybody I can there-- other designers and distributors. I'll find out.

Donna: My poor honey bear. You're getting all this flack from your own family. God, I feel so horrible. I'm--I'm causing you all this hassle.

Eric: No, Donna, you're not causing me anything.

Donna: Yes. Yes, I am. I wanna blame Ridge, I do, but it's not true. He's just protecting his family legacy, just like you are. I mean, what--what if it's true? What if--what if I'm the reason sales are down?

Eric: Well, if it is, and I don't believe it is, we'll deal with it, you and me, together. But let's not get ahead of ourselves, all right? I'm gonna go take this trip, and then I'll come home to the woman I love.

Donna: I'm gonna miss you every single second. I know how much you love this company.

Eric: I love you more. Okay, now just don't worry. This is nothing. It's just a-- it's just a little speed bump, okay?

Donna: Okay. (Door opens)

Thorne: Dad, we gotta go.

Eric: Yeah, okay. I'll be back soon, okay?

Donna: Okay. (Laughs)

Eric: You hang in there.

Donna: Okay.

Eric: Okay. I'll call you when I get there.

Donna: Okay.

Donna: (Crying)

Owen: I thought you were gonna go home and be with your husband before he went on his trip.

Donna: Oh, um, yeah, he, um, you know, didn't have time. He had to catch the flight.

Owen: Hey, come on, what's going on?

Donna: (Crying) Well, um, the reason that my husband's not taking me to New York is because he has to do... damage control. Apparently, I don't fit the image of Forrester.

Owen: You mean, Eric told you that?

Donna: No, no, but Ridge has been telling him that, and the reason that sales are down are--is because he married somebody like me.

Owen: Somebody sweet?

Donna: (Laughs) Look, I-I love my husband. I-I don't--I don't want to cause him any problems.

Owen: Look, your husband's gonna go on his trip. He's gonna do what he needs to do, and you're gonna be fine.

Donna: You promise?

Owen: I'll make sure of it.

Donna: 'Kay. Thanks. (Laughs) thanks. (Sighs) oh, and if, uh, you don't mind, I just--

Owen: No, it--

Donna: You know?

Owen: Sure.

Donna: Okay.

Felicia: Hey, come here. I've been looking for you. My dad is going out of town.

Owen: Yeah, I know.

Felicia: This is it. This is the time to strike. Donna is gonna be alone and vulnerable. Listen, buddy, you accepted my offer, so make it happen. Hear me, Owen. My mother is struggling, okay? I need this. I need it. I need it for her. I need it for our family.

Owen: Look--all right. Tonight... you'll have what you need. Donna's marriage to your father's about to explode.

(Knock on door)

Owen: Hey. You okay?

Donna: (Sobbing) I just want to go home.

Owen: I'll take you.

Donna: Okay. (Sobbing)
