Thomas: Steffy? I’m here.
Steffy: O– okay. Hi.
Steffy: Is everything okay?
Thomas: Yeah, it’s just half the time I walk in, finn’s got his shirt off and you’re all making out and stuff. Just wanted to forewarn.
Steffy: Good to know. Thanks. I mean, I can’t help it. But just you wait. Wait till you have a girlfriend. I walk in on you, that’s gonna be super weird. Yeah, whatever. Why don’t you actually have a girlfriend? What’s going on? I want to know about your dating life.
Thomas: Uh, there’s not really anything to talk about.
Thomas: Not seeing anyone right now. Outside of work, I’m just focused on my son.
Hope: So, ridge is coming home from aspen today?
Brooke: He’ll be landing anytime.
Hope: Well, I think it’s a good sign that he texted you.
Brooke: Yeah, but he’s not coming home alone. He’s been with taylor this whole time. They’re flying back to L.A., Together.
Katie: Well, thanks a lot, justin. You just made my life a whole lot more difficult. I didn’t think I’d be able to secure this deal. Now I’ve got to come up with a strategy.
Justin: [Chuckling] Well, I’m glad I could be the cause of more work. That means that you’re starting to trust me a bit.
Katie: Don’t push it.
Justin: Okay, I know. I have a lot to make up for.
Katie: Carter says you’ve been doing a lot of great work around here.
Justin: Thanks. Uh, this place is refreshing. Inspiring. It’s a lot of positive energy.
Katie: Did justin barber just talk about positive energy?
Justin: See, what can I say? I like it here. I’m using my law degree for something good. Helping people out while not tearing others down. But I must say, if you look at that deal, a lot of that work was carter. Those signatures, that’s all him. Speaking of, I actually have some forms that I need to get your wet signatures on. Do you mind if I come right back?
Katie: Yeah, of course.
Justin: All right.
Katie: Hey, justin, um… I like seeing you like this.
Justin: Thank you.
Katie: There are plenty
of people around here who think
that you’re amazing, carter.
Carter: Like who?
Carter: What are you plotting in here?
[ Giggling ]
Katie: Well, although I probably shouldn’t admit this to the C.O.O., I was, um, just daydreaming.
Carter: Hm. Depends on what you were daydreaming about.
[ Giggling ]
Carter: Well, I don’t want to distract you from your work.
Katie: Well, you’d be on my mind whether you were here or not.
Carter: Is that so?
Katie: You haven’t been thinking about me?
Carter: I might have asked pam to text me when you got done with your meeting.
Katie: Well, that explains the look she gave me. I thought it might have something to do with my sister.
Carter: How is she?
Katie: She’s heartbroken. She thought her marriage to ridge was solid and, all of a sudden, he’s leaving her. She can’t even say why.
Brooke: I just want some answers. I need ridge to come home and explain to me what happened. I– I have no idea what happened. So, our marriage is over, and he’s suddenly with taylor? Why? And how? What’s going on?
Hope: Ridge said he’s coming over, right? So, that could be good.
Brooke: Uh, yes. Yes, I suppose it could be. But, what if I can’t get through to him? I– I– I don’t know what else to do. And if I can’t, then our marriage could really be over.
Steffy: I think it’s really great you’re enjoying this time with douglas.
Thomas: You’re not gonna give me a hard time about not dating?
Steffy: No. I’m too happy to give you a hard time.
Thomas: That’s a once in a lifetime thing.
[ Car door thudding ]
Thomas: Car door. They’re here.
Steffy: Can you not on my coffee table?
Thomas: They’ll never– shh.
Steffy: What are you doing?
Thomas: They’ll never know.
Ridge: Hey, hey.
Thomas: Hey, you’re– you’re back.
Taylor: And– and back together?
Thomas: I know. Hah!
[ Laughing ]
[ Incoherent chatter ]
Taylor: I see you! I see you! Ah!
[ Laughing ]
Thomas: I almost don’t believe it.
Steffy: You gotta believe it. We’re finally back together.
Steffy: Forresters. The way we always wanted.
Steffy: Oh, this is amazing.
[ Thomas chuckling ]
Ever notice how stiff clothes can feel rough on your skin?
Katie: These ad buys are going to completely round out our full saturation approach. Thank you both very much.
Justin & carter: All in a day’s work.
Carter: Okay, let’s never do that again.
Justin: Please, never.
Katie: All right, here you go.
Justin: All right. We’re all set. So, I’ll let you get back to it. Oh, and, uh, by the way, um, sorry to hear, word is getting around about brooke and ridge.
Katie: Yeah, well, I feel bad for my sister. I’m just hoping they can figure things out.
Carter: You’re a loving, loyal sister, katie.
Katie: Well, I know how much ridge means to brooke and how hard they’ve fought for each other and their marriage. But until she talks to him, all I can do is worry, and I know she wouldn’t want me to do that. She would want me to be positive.
Carter: And maybe I can help.
Katie: You already have. Is that why you were looking for me? You thought I might need some cheering up?
Carter: Or I do. You gave me quite the ego boost the other day. You said I looked like a trout.
[ Laughing ]
Carter: I just had no idea you, um… felt that way about me.
[ Laughing ]
Katie: I find that hard to believe.
Carter: It’s true.
Katie: Well, does that mean you’ve never thought about me?
Carter: You were with bill.
Katie: Not anymore.
Carter: Till quinn bailed on me, I thought I had something solid with her. But now–
Katie: Now you’re free to start something else.
Brooke: Oh, honey, you don’t have to wait around.
Hope: You need me. I’m here.
Brooke: Thank you. Actually, I would probably be driving myself absolutely crazy if you weren’t here. I still have so many questions.
Hope: So, ridge didn’t give you any sort of clue as to why he is now with taylor?
Brooke: No. I mean, yeah, there was that kiss in monaco that they had, but ridge explained that. He said he didn’t want that to impact our relationship.
Hope: Well, I know thomas and steffy took it as a sign that their parents should be together.
Brooke: Yeah. Steffy made sure that everybody knew, she wouldn’t let up, that’s for sure.
Hope: But I thought that ridge made it clear to her that he was committed to you.
Brooke: Yeah, he didn’T. He told me the same thing. And I actually believed him. I was just not gonna let anything or anybody come between us. Not steffy, not taylor, not the situation with thomas and douglas. Yeah, sure, sure, we were struggling a little bit, but we were working our way through things. And actually, we were in a good place.
Hope: But thomas, steffy and taylor weren’t going to accept that, so they drove a wedge between the two of you.
Brooke: And I really hate to say it, but I think that maybe it worked.
[ Forresters laughing ]
Steffy: Here you go. That’s for mom.
Taylor: Thank you.
Steffy: Love birds.
Ridge: Thank you.
Thomsa: You know, dad, if you have, uh, some luggage, I can– I can bring yours down, too.
Steffy: Yeah, we can bring the bags up to mom’s room. We could do that. Yeah, we should do that.
Taylor: You don’t need to fuss over us. Stop.
Thomas: Come on, we would do anything for you guys.
Steffy: Yeah, we should be doing more. You know what we should do? When the kids get home, we should have a barbecue.
Ridge: When the kids get home? They’re not gettin’ out?
Steffy: They’re not here yet. They’re very excited to do, like, an elaborate tea party for you. It’s really cute.
Thomas: You know, seeing you guys together, this is just, like… it’s so amazing.
Taylor: All feels right in the world now, you know? Us. We’re back together. And our beautiful, amazing, brilliant, wonderful kids are finally off our back.
[ Ridge gasping ]
Taylor: No, really. No, really. It’s– this is– this is everything I’ve– I’ve ever wanted. For all of us.
Music (“I swear”) plays
Carter: You know, we used to spend a lot of time together.
Katie: We used to do a lot of talking about bill and quinn. I don’t wanna do that anymore.
Carter: No argument here.
Katie: I do have one more question, though.
Carter: Yes, she’s really gone. And after speaking with shauna, I don’t think she’s ever coming back.
Katie: Well, I think that’s for the best, honestly.
Carter: Would you have wanted a clean break from bill?
Katie: Bill and I have a son. He’s always gonna be in my life. But honestly, we haven’t, um, connected as a couple in a while.
Katie: Which is why I’m curious.
Carter: About me and quinn?
Katie: Yeah. You know, she had success, she had security. She’s a world-renowned jewelry designer. She was mrs. Eric forrester, and yet, she risked it all for you.
Katie: No, it’s just, you know, besides all of your success and talents. You obviously shook quinn to her core. Caused a seismic shift in her life.
Carter: And that idea intrigues you?
Katie: It does. Was the chemistry that hot?
Hope: You can’t lose hope. Because there is still a chance. And I know you still love him, and I have to believe that he still loves you.
Brooke: He does love me. He told me he always will. But that doesn’t mean we’ll be together.
Hope: Mom, I know you and I know you will be able to get through to him.
Brooke: I hope so, honey. But I am one small voice. He has his other family shouting in his ear all the time.
Hope: I know, because they’re trying to make it seem as if their connection and their love is more valid than yours when it is not. You are ridge’s wife.
Brooke: You’re right. You are. You’re right. And I don’t want to be at war with taylor and her kids. I don’T. God, I just want my husband back. That’s all.
Thomas: Okay. I want details. Like I was there.
Ridge: I assume that she told you every detail ad nauseam at this point.
Thomas: Yeah, well, I mean, have you ever heard her tell a story? It’s like–
Steffy: Excuse me?
Taylor: Steffy has good stories.
Steffy: Yes, I do.
Thomas: Okay, look, things seemed kind of bleak before you left for aspen. I mean, mom, you were thinking about leaving L.A.
Taylor: Well, that was the plan. But steffy convinced me to go to aspen and think things through. Don’t make any rash decisions.
Taylor: I mean, as much as I love your dad, I knew that he was torn and he was trying to make his marriage work. And our feelings for each other were making things very complicated, and it– it just didn’t feel right.
Taylor: But then he said that he came there to find me. Because he realized that I was the one that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.
Ridge: And she didn’t believe me.
Taylor: I mean, I– I wanted to believe you.
Taylor: I did, I did. But I was– I was bawling my eyes out. And I was really fighting my feelings. So, naturally, I ran from them.
Ridge: And from me.
Taylor: But he didn’t let me get away. No matter how far or fast I ran, he didn’t give up.
Ridge: Can we please– can we please stop running? I’m gonna have a heart attack.
Taylor: Then stop chasing me.
Ridge: But I’m not that man anymore.
Taylor: Okay, what kind of man are you now?
Ridge: I’m a man who’s standing on a mountain in front of this beautiful woman, telling her that we can do this. That I’m not gonna let her down anymore.
Ridge: I want to be a better man.
Ridge: And you make me a better man. I want to be with you.
Ridge: For always. And she was so deeply moved that she said–
Taylor: What the hell took you so long?
[ Chuckling ] Cps agent: Child protective services.
Brooke: Hello. I’d like to report a child in danger. Cps agent: And your name, ma’am?
[ Cell phone beeping ] Brooke logan. Please hurry.
[ Cell phone beeping ]
Brooke: Brooke logan. Please hurry.
[ Taylor & ridge laughing ]
Taylor: Uh-oh, I think we lost him. Thomas?
Thomas: No, no, I was just, uh, just thinking. Uh, so then brooke showed up?
Steffy: Not that it mattered. It was too late.
Thomas: Yeah. No, I just thought that maybe she was trying to plead her case.
Ridge: Why can’t you take some responsibility and just say it? Say to me.
Brooke: Say what?
Thomas: Brooke didn’t say anything?
Ridge: Why are we talking about brooke? What are we doing? I’m here with your mom, and yes, there’s only one question I have, and you’re right. What took me so long?
[ Laughing ]
Taylor: See? I knew I– it was– it was valid. Good question.
[ Mouthing ] Research shows that people remember ads with young people
Katie: It’s a serious question. What?
Carter: I’m just thinking, if bill heard you right now.
Katie: Is that really what you’re thinking?
Katie: I made it very clear that I’m not interested in pursuing things with bill.
Carter: I do want to make one thing clear, though.
Carter: I didn’t never give you a thought. I’ve always noticed how incredible you are. How smart. How strong.
Carter: Beautiful. How sexy.
Brooke: What I share with ridge is more than history. We are connected on the deepest level. And taylor and her children, they’ve never understood that. They’ve never been able to accept it. But I am not giving up on ridge.
Brooke: Our love story is not coming to an end.
Taylor: I just– then– then, yeah. But the– it was–
Steffy: That’s great.
Taylor: And it was beautiful, too.
[ Taylor laughing ]
[ Chatter ]
Steffy: Are we leaving you out?
Thomas: Yeah, like, what are you doing? You gonna join the team? Come on.
Ridge: I’m– I’m the leader of this team, what are you talking about? I’m just standing back for a second because I… I like seeing you guys laughing together. Those– those are precious moments. We don’t have too many of those. I mean, that’s something that steffy and finn have taught us, right?
Taylor: That is– that is so true. And thank you for that. You know? You know, this moment, right here, that we’re living right now, I– I really didn’t think it was possible. And I didn’t think it would ever happen. Until your dad caught up with me on the top of that mountain and proved to me that anything is possible.
Taylor: True love wins in the end, we’re happy, we’re together and we’re ready to build the rest of our lives together.
Taylor: We did it, ridge. We did it. It’s another miracle for a family.
Thomas: Another miracle for our family indeed.
