Eric: I have a couple of announcements to make this morning, both personal and business. Look, in spite of everything that's happened to our family-- a couple of pretty serious tragedies that happened to our family this year, we managed to have a wonderful Christmas, and I, uh, I thank you all for that. I hope you all feel as good about that as I did. Now look, your mother and I have, uh, made a decision. We're gonna go our separate ways.

Ridge: What?!

Felicia: Come on, Daddy. Not again.

Eric: Your mother and I will always be very close, of course.

Stephanie: We're going to continue to work together, okay? So it's fine.

Eric: But I'm gonna stay married to Donna.

Owen: All right. Thanks, guys.

Donna: Thanks again for telling Eric about what Thorne did. You know, the look-alikes.

Owen: Oh.

Donna: You didn't have to do that.

Owen: I couldn't have lived with myself if I didn't. Look, Donna, I may not be able to have you, but I still care about you, and I want you to be happy.

Donna: You know, I am. Actually, I would be ecstatic if it weren't for one thing.

Owen: What?

Donna: (Sighs) Pam is back in town.

Owen: Wait. What? I thought Pam was locked up somewhere.

Donna: Yeah, well, apparently the doctors think that she is cured, and she says she misses L.A., And she thinks the town is big enough for both of us. In fact, she brought me a gift.

Owen: What? More lemon bars?

Donna: No, apparently she gave up baking and took up crochet.

Owen: Well, that's pretty surprising that she'd come bearing gifts, considering you're back together with Eric.

Donna: Yeah, well, she doesn't know that yet, and, I mean, I certainly wasn't gonna tell her, but she's gonna find out sooner or later.

Owen: Look, well, then maybe we should notify security.

Donna: What? No. No, tomorrow is our-- our fashion show, Owen, and, you know, Pam is the last thing I want to think about. We have to focus all of our energies on the surf line premier, okay? We gotta pray to the tiki Gods that our designs are good. I mean, because, Owen, we are so inexperienced, but this--this opportunity-- it could change our life. So we gotta hang ten, babe.

Owen: Cowabunga?

Donna: (Laughs) yeah.

Owen: (Laughs)

Donna: (Laughs)

Ridge: I don't get it. This is completely out of left field.

Felicia: Yeah, well, maybe Thorne can explain it to you.

Thorne: (Scoffs) I did something to make Dad believe that donna was unfaithful. But she wasn't. I just wanted you guys to stay together.

Felicia: We all do.

Thorne: Well, it's too late. He's already made his decision.

Stephanie: Sweetheart, your heart was in the right place. I don't know where your head was. Look, I love your father. He's been my-- well, he always will be my rock. Sometimes I'd like to pick a rock up and hit him in the head.

Eric: Now when have you ever resisted hitting me?

Felicia: There's nothing funny about this, you guys.

Stephanie: Oh, honey, come on. Grow up. You're an adult. You have your own family, all right? No tears for me.

Eric: Your mother and I have accomplished wonderful things together.

Stephanie: Yes, we had you children. And we built the company.

Eric: Yes, that's right. And we realize we love each other in a way that we can't possibly love anybody else. Isn't that right?

Stephanie: Absolutely.

Eric: All right.

Stephanie: So no tears, okay? This is not a pity party. You want some coffee?

Eric: Yeah, thank you. We're like, uh, oil and water, the two of us.

Stephanie: We don't mix.

Eric: No, we don't. Not as much sugar, okay?

Stephanie: Mm-hmm. Uh, and the other thing that's very nice in a way, it's kind of liberating when you come to the realization that you are incompatible because in a way, it kind of makes you...

Eric: Compatible.

Stephanie: Yeah. Sugar?

Eric: Yeah, just a little.

Stephanie: I know.

Eric: A dash is-- you know, just a dash.

Stephanie: A dash. I got it.

Eric: That's bigger than a dash.

Stephanie: I know.

Eric: Well, just a little.

Stephanie: How's that?

Eric: Well, the fabrics are a lot better with this next one.

Felicia: I don't know what's more shocking-- Mom's and Dad's announcement or Ridge and Rick in the same room together.

Thorne: Yeah, I have to give you credit for that, bro.

Ridge: I, uh, still have a few issues, but I love Brooke. So does Rick. We've agreed to solve our differences for her sake. I asked Rick to respect a few boundaries. As long as he doesn't cross the line, we'll be fine.

Brooke: I hope everyone in the family supports this, gives them a chance to work things out.

Eric: I do, too. That's why I want to make another announcement, one that's going to affect our family and this company for a very long time to come. Effective immediately, I'm appointing Ridge C.E.O. of Forrester Creations. I'll stay on as chairman of the board, and Rick will stay on as president. It's about time that you returned to the forefront of this company, Ridge.

Ridge: Well, thank you, Dad. I didn't expect that. It means a lot.

Eric: Okay.

Ridge: I look forward to coming back here.

Eric: Well, you'll be in your old office, all right? And, Rick, I want you to take this office, right adjacent to mine.

Brooke: I agree with your father, Rick. I think that's where you need to be.

Eric: All right, good. Then it's all settled. Now I think it's important that we all concentrate on the task at hand-- the event that's being rehearsed downstairs as we speak and that's causing a lot of buzz around town, and that's the introduction of our new surf line.

Stephanie: Well, they're having a meeting in the showroom. Don't you think you should be there?

Eric: So I should. This meeting is adjourned.

Rick: (Clears throat) Uh, Ridge? Congratulations. Really.

Ridge: Thank you.

Rick: (Sighs)

Donna: Oh, my God, we have so many freakin' things to finalize before this fashion show.

Owen: Look, I know. We're just waiting for Eric's approval on a few things, and we can move forward. Where is he, by the way?

Donna: He is in a meeting with his whole family. I'm sure they're talking about me.

Woman: Excuse me. Mr. Forrester is on his way down. He wants to see the lineup for the fashion show.

Owen: Great. Send the models out, please.

Donna: Oh, God, I am so nervous.

Owen: I know. Me, too.

Donna: (Sighs)

Brooke: Ridge is going to do everything he possibly can to put his anger towards you behind him.

Rick: I am so grateful for that.

Brooke: It's not going to happen overnight.

Rick: No, I know. These things take time, and this is gonna take a lot of time.

Brooke: The good thing is that you're still president of Forrester Creations. Ridge is now C.E.O., So the two of you will be working closely together. You just need to give him some space, and I'm sure that you'll be able to repair your relationship. Just stay away from Taylor and Steffy and the rest of the family.

Rick: No, I-I-I understand.

Brooke: Good.

Rick: Look, this is a second chance for me. And I want to do the right thing, not just for you, but for Ridge. He lost a daughter, and I feel responsible for that.

(Cell phone rings)

Rick: Excuse me.

Rick: Um, sorry, Mom. I gotta--I gotta go.

Brooke: You okay?

Rick: No, no, no. Yeah, everything's fine. Look, thank you for your support and every-- everything that you've done. And I know what to do. It's gonna be just fine.

Felicia: You're acting like you and Dad splitting up is no big deal.

Stephanie: Honey, I'm not saying it isn't painful. It is. (Sighs) I'm just done fighting. I've been here before, and I have survived, okay?

Ridge: What the hell is Dad thinking, though?

Stephanie: I don't know, Ridge, and I-- you know what? I don't even want to go there. But my little sweetheart, Thorne, thank you for your misguided attempt. I do appreciate you wanted to keep us together. Thank you.

Donna: So we are going to announce that our fashion show is benefiting the V8 make every serving count program. And some of our proceeds are gonna go to its partnership, feeding America, which provides 30 million servings of fruits and vegetables to the nation's poorest.

Eric: Good. I'm very glad to have Forrester involved in something like this.

Donna: Yeah.

Eric: Nice.

Donna: (Laughs) Me, too. I mean, we just-- we have so many good ideas. We really do.

Eric: Good.

Donna: Wait a minute. Um, Grace, could you come here, please? That bikini--big mistake. Uh, it's not part of the line. It's--

Eric: Wait, hold on. Hold on there. You look a lot like Donna here, don't you?

Grace: Mm. I've heard that before.

Eric: From my son Thorne, no doubt.

Grace: Look, Mr. Forrester, I am so sorry.

Eric: No, you don't have anything that you have to be sorry about. It's my son Thorne who needs to be sorry. Fortunately, everything worked out okay. What--what-- what is this bikini?

Donna: Oh, no, that's-- that's not--

Eric: It's--it's crochet.

Donna: Yeah, it--

Eric: Well, it's-- it's stunning. Look at this. It's very unique. Let me see. It's great work. Look. The stitching is wonderful. It's a--it's a work of art.

Donna: Seriously?

Eric: I'm crazy about this.

Donna: Crazy. Yeah, you--you got that right.

Eric: Yeah, it's, like, homespun, but at the same time, it's sexy, and it's playful. And I can't even say it--

Donna: Okay, Eric, you know, that's not part of the--

Owen: Hey, Donna, did you tell Eric about your great idea for the debut of the surf line?

Donna: No. No. Um, okay. Yeah, we're gonna have a big screen on the back, and it's gonna project people surfing, and we're gonna make it feel like it's Malibu in here. You know, the sun, the surf, the sunshine.

Eric: Good. That's great. That's wonderful.

Donna: Yeah. Yeah, and then-- oh, and for the finale, the person wearing the showstopper is gonna bust through emerging from the water. It's gonna seem like they're riding the wave.

Eric: Uh, how are you gonna do that?

Owen: Jake's working on the special effects right now.

Eric: Well, is it gonna work?

Owen: He's gonna knock it out of the park.

Eric: Yeah? Okay, great. I think that's great. I want to take it a step further. I want you to be in the showstopper.

Donna: Oh, no. Eric, no. My modeling days are over.

Eric: All right, well, if they are, this can be your last hurrah. And I want the showstopper to be this bikini here.

Donna: Oh, no.

Eric: Oh, yes. You on your stand-up board coming through that screen up there, down here into the crowd in this bikini, oh, you're gonna knock 'em dead, I can feel it. It's gonna be beautiful.

Donna: No, uh--

Eric: It's gonna be great. You'll see.

Donna: (Sighs)

Brooke: How's it going, Mr. C.E.O.?

Ridge: It's going great. But I'm hoping it's gonna get a lot better. I have a proposition for you.

Brooke: Mmm. Should I lock the door?

Ridge: Oh, we'll have plenty of time for that after we get married.

Brooke: I don't think I can wait that long.

Ridge: Maybe you won't have to, if you marry me tomorrow.

Brooke: Tomorrow?

Ridge: Yes, right after the fashion show. As soon as it's over, we get married. What do you say?

Brooke: (Laughs) yes! Yes, of course I'll marry you.

Rick: Hi.

Steffy: Hey. Look, um, about last night, I just--

Rick: I know. I know.

Stephanie: (Chuckles) You know, my dad would have killed me if he knew I was at your house, and, God, if anything went further, I just-- otherwise, it's just really good--

Rick: Otherwise, uh, we would been in way over our heads.

Steffy: Yeah.

Rick: Oh, Steffy, I'm sorry. I don't know what-- what's wrong with me. I--

Steffy: It's not just you. It's both of us. Because I felt it, too. God, my sister is gone, and I-I don't--I don't know how to deal with it. She's gone, and I'm alive, and I don't know, it just-- I feel like I wanna-- I want to live, and I want to love even more and just not miss any moment. And... when I was with you, I felt okay. I felt okay, and I felt-- I felt safe with you when I was in your arms.

Rick: I felt that way, too.

Donna: Owen, listen, I-I don't want to model at all, and I certainly don't want to wear the hideous bikini.

Owen: But Eric loves it.

Donna: Because he doesn't know it was created by the devil spawn.

Owen: Look, he doesn't need to know that Pam made it. He wants it in the show, and he wants you to wear it, Donna, so just let it go, all right?

Donna: (Sighs)

Eric: How's my beautiful wife?

Donna: I am excited.

Eric: Yeah?

Donna: But a little nervous.

Eric: Nervous? Why? It's your ideas and your designs that are gonna make this showing a success. I'm so proud of you.

Donna: Yeah?

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: Well, it's good to be a team again.

Eric: Our first showing as a married couple.

Donna: Our first of many.

Eric: Mm.

Donna: (Laughs)

Eric: Look up.

Donna: Oh! (Laughs)

Brooke: So do you really want to get married tomorrow?

Ridge: We've waited long enough, Logan. You and I belong together. I don't want another day to go by that we aren't husband and wife.

Brooke: Neither do I. I love you so much. And I really appreciate the fact that you found it in your heart to forgive my son. I know it's a lot to ask.

Ridge: I know how important it is to you.

Brooke: It means the world to me. You mean the world to me. I guess we were meant to be together, 'cause we survived everything-- your mother, Rick.

Ridge: I made a commitment to try and forgive Rick. But I can't help worrying about Steffy. She's, uh, emotionally vulnerable after losing her twin sister. We're gonna have to keep an eye on her, 'cause I do not want her falling into the wrong hands.

Steffy: No.

Rick: Just--just-- just come here. Just come here.

Steffy: Stop.

Rick: I just wanted to tell you that you look so beautiful.

Steffy: God, you should not be saying this.

Rick: I can't help it.

Steffy: You can help it, because I'm confused. And I'm with Marcus.

Rick: I know you're with--

Steffy: I have a boyfriend.

Rick: I know you're with Marcus. I know you have a boyfriend.

Steffy: And my dad is already going through so much pain.

Rick: I think your dad is gonna forgive me for Phoebe's death. That's how much he loves my mom. Maybe they belong together after all. I keep trying to relive the past, you know? Do things differently. But I can't. Phoebe is dead, and a part of me died with her.

Steffy: I feel the same.

Rick: I made a promise, Steffy. I promised that I would stay away from you and that I would stay away from your family. I intend to keep that promise. What happened with us last night, I-I can't explain it. It--I don't understand it. It doesn't make sense to me, but it happened. And it can't happen again, ever again. This connection that--that-- that we're feeling with each other, it--it comes from a place deep down inside of us. We've never experienced it before. It's--it's a--it's a grief that we've never felt. A deep grief, and--and I wake up every single morning with a--with a knot in the pit of my stomach, and it just doesn't go away. Oh, God, and I keep saying to myself, "it should have been me." You know, I should have died. Why did-- why did phoebe have to die? And I-I-I relive the past again and--and think to myself--

Steffy: We don't get do overs. We just have to go on somehow.

Steffy: My sister is dead.

Steffy: She's gone, and I'm here. But one shouldn't be here without the other. I feel like I have this hole inside of me, but when I was with you, I didn't feel empty. I felt safe and secure with you.

Rick: I know. I felt the same way. But it can't happen again.

Steffy: No, I know. I know. This can never happen again. Never.
