[ Relaxing music ]

Charlie: Nothing. But nothing is better than seeing ridge forrester at his drafting table. It’s like seeing michelangelo in front of a blank sistine chapel ceiling. Like the great julia child–

Ridge: In her kitchen.

Charlie: Right?

Ridge: Yes. What’s up?

Charlie: Well, something sinister, I’m afraid. I had to come up here to get eyeballs on you to make sure that you are here and you are not out there.

Ridge: Out there where?

Charlie: Front entrance. Some whackazoid is pretending to be ridge forrester.

Ridge: Okay, well, there’s no reason to pretend anything like that ’cause I’m here, right?

Charlie: Right you are. You know, listen, I– I noticed that pammy and donna are not at the desk out there, so you know what? I am going to do you a solid and I’m going to plant my keester right there, so if this jokester tries anything funny, and I don’t mean amusing funny, I mean, you know, funny, I’ll– I’ll be there.

Ridge: Okay, that’s great. I appreciate it and I appreciate not being interrupted because I’m working.

Charlie: Oh, sure, well, come on. You’re the king. You’re the king and I will guard this place like buckingham palace.

Ridge: Great. What does that mean? No tourists? Is that what that means?

Charlie: Well, you’re the king. I’m nothing. King, nothing, king, nothing.

Ridge: Yes, charlie. I’m the king of nothing.

Charlie: Yeah. Yeah, well, listen, I– I– got your back and your front. I got– in fact– I’ll be right out there.

Ridge: Why am I paying this guy?

[ Hope sighing ]

Brooke: Oh, good honey, you’re home. I just wanted to run this down from the house. Douglas left his binder.

Hope: Oh. Well, like mother, like son.

Brooke: I’m glad you’re home, actually. I wanted to talk to you about something.

Hope: Ah. Is it about thomas?

Brooke: Uh, no, even though I can’t help but be concerned.

Hope: Well, you have nothing to be concerned about. There’s no need to worry. I already talked to dad about this today.

Brooke: He was here?

Hope: No. No, I went to go visit him at il giardino. You know, give him a long overdue thank you for helping to put sheila away for good.

Deacon: I have been dying to see you. Sheila, you gotta know how sorry I am. I know that this whole thing seems like a huge betrayal to you. Please, I’m begging you. Tell me you don’t hate me.

Bill: You’re hesitating. Now, maybe you don’t want to say it in front of carter, but the sooner he hears it, the better. You know how I feel and I think you feel it too. I’m right, aren’t I? You still love me, katie.

Katie: Bill, you’re really putting me on the spot here. Especially in front of carter.

Bill: You’re the one who insisted he stay.

Katie: Do I care about you? Do I want what’s best for you? Of course. You’re the father of my son.

Bill: That’s right, katie. We share a son, our family. A family I want back.

Sheila: You stabbed me in the back, deacon.

Deacon: I was cornered. Bill and ridge gave me a way out.

Sheila: And you took it.

Deacon: Mm-hm. Yeah.

Sheila: Do I hate you? After everything you did for me? I could never hate you.

[ Deacon sighing ]

[ Knocking on door ]

Ridge: Yes?

Charlie: Hi, me again. Uh, remember that whole debacle about the ridge impersonator?

Ridge: The thing we talked about just a few minutes ago? Yeah, I remember that, charlie.

Charlie: Yeah, well we thought it was a mistake, you know, that there couldn’t possibly be a ridge forrester downstairs.

Ridge: It was a mistake. I’m right here.

Charlie: Right you are. Uh… there’s– there’s someone I think you should meet.

Ridge: Well, that someone’s gonna have to make an appointment. Charlie, I’m trying to explain this to you. I’m in the groove here. I’m trying to get something done. I’m feeling it. I don’t want to be interrupted.

Charlie: Well, I– I know, but th–

Ridge: Handle it, charlie! Please!

Charlie: Okay, yes sir. Um, you absolutely sure?

Ridge: Positive.

Charlie: Okay.

Ridge: Wow.

[ Knocking on door ] Charlie, you are killing me.

[ Ridge laughing ] Rj!

Rj: Hey, dad.

Ridge: Ridge jr. Now, I get it.

Rj: Yeah.

Ridge: Hi. Welcome home. Aw. I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,

Carter: Look, bill. I get that you two have history, that you share a child and years of memories together, and yes, katie will always love you. I already know that. But it doesn’t have the same meaning for her that it does for you. You see, we’re together now, happily.

Katie: It’s true. We’ve been having a really good time together.

Bill: Time that would’ve never happened if I had been the husband you needed. I’ve got a lot of making up to do and I’d like the chance to do just that, starting tonight over dinner.

Deacon: You don’t hate me.

Sheila: I know how much you risked. All that time that we spent together… everything that you did for me. All those many and many moments that we shared. I’ll never forget it.

Deacon: And neither will I. Not again. There’s no way. It can’t be.

[ Deacon exhaling ]

Sheila: Mama’s back.

Deacon: Oh, sheila, every time I’m near you, my heart, it just goes pitter patter.

Sheila: Yeah. Such happy memories. And now, I’m stuck here.

Hope: Okay, so if you don’t want to talk about dad and you don’t want to talk about sheila and you certainly don’t want to talk about thomas, what did you want to talk about then?

Brooke: Oh, nothing. I mean… it just, sometimes it– it weights on me.

Hope: What?

Brooke: Look, don’t get me wrong. I mean, I’m happy that he’s living the life that he wants to, that he’s travelling the world and doing exciting things. It’s just… I miss him.

Hope: Oh, this conversation again. You want to talk about rj.

[ Ridge laughing ]

Ridge: Another ridge forrester trying to get in the building. Now, I got it.

Rj: Yeah. Just the younger, more handsome version.

Ridge: Really? Can’t argue with you. You’re right.

Rj: You know, it took some serious convincing to get in here. Has it really been that long?

Ridge: It’s been too long. What have you been doing? Hitting the gym? Is that it?

Rj: When I can.

Ridge: When you can. When you’re not influencing people on the world wide web. You look good.

Rj: Thank you, dad. Speaking of, have you seen my latest posts?

Ridge: Oh, the one where you’re bungee jumping off a building or whatever? No, I haven’t seen it, and your mom hasn’t seen it because we don’t wanna see you in those kind of situations. You get that. Can’t believe your mom didn’t tell me you were coming.

Rj: Oh, mom doesn’t know. Nobody knows.

Ridge: You didn’t give anyone a heads up?

Rj: And spoil the surprise?

Ridge: It is so good to see you. Come here.

Rj: It’s good to see you too, dad.

Ridge: I missed you. Do you struggle with occasional nerve aches

Bill: Come on, katie. One dinner with me. What do you say?

Katie: I’m just afraid that it will give you false hope and I–

Bill: And you’re afraid to face the truth. You know we belong together.

Katie: No, it’s not that. Carter and I have a really good thing going on here and I am not going to disrespect that or him.

Bill: Oh, come on, now. Carter’s not afraid of a little friendly competition from little old me. Right, carter?

Sheila: So, what’s next for the incredibly, incredibly sexy mr. Sharpe?

Deacon: All good things, I hope, now that I’ve been granted my clemency.

Sheila: Well… so, you get to roam your life free while I’m in here. I’m happy for you, deacon.

Brooke: So, when is the last time you talked to your brother?

Hope: I talked to him the other day. I mean, we text each other all the time. We video chat and mom, I know you talk to him too. I mean, you see his posts, you know he’s doing fine.

Brooke: Yes, okay, but why can’t he do fine right here in los angeles?

Hope: He’s young. He’s figuring things out. He’s spreading his wings, but at least you know he’s living his best life.

Brooke: Yes, and whatever he chooses to do, I will support him, even if it’s taking videos and pictures from the south pole or making those crazy cartoons.

Hope: Mom, you know he prefers the term “animation.”

Brooke: Okay. He is very talented, but why doesn’t he bring that talent home? I want to thank you for being the one child who stayed.

Hope: Does that make me the favorite?

[ Hope laughing ]

Ridge: Look at you. Are you all right? You good? You happy?

Rj: Yeah, very.

Ridge: Yeah? Running around all over the world, that doesn’t get old ever?

Rj: I don’t know. How could it? It’s awesome, dad.

Ridge: It is awesome. What a stupid thing to say. Of course, it’s awesome. You’re only young once. You should do that. Do your thing.

Rj: Especially, if it means… I bring back gifts. Your favorite licorice.

[ Ridge gasping ] Oh, yeah.

Ridge: When did you do this? When did you go to denmark?

Rj: Well, if you watched the bungee video, you would be able to answer that question.

Ridge: I told you about that. This is so good. Thank you.

Rj: I got something for mom too. I can’t wait to see her. Is she here?

Ridge: She’s not here right now, but she’s coming later. She’s gonna be so excited to see her little boy. Little boy, to see you. She’s gonna be so happy that you’re back. Up at 2:00am again?

Carter: You said over dinner? Nah, man. Katie can spend time and have meals with anyone she wants. She knows how much I care about her and I know how much she cares about me, and I want to continue having her in my life.

Bill: Now, you can want that, but just know, carter, katie and I share a son and I want my family back. I want my katie, and I think you’ll come back after I prove you are the only woman in the world for me.

Deacon: You’re happy for me?

Sheila: Yes.

Deacon: My god, sheila, I helped put you in here.

Sheila: That’s the smartest thing you’ve probably ever done in your life. I mean it. You’ve– you’ve got the restaurant, you’ve got hope, you’ve got your whole future ahead of you. I… I may end up spending the rest of my life here. So, you go. You go and you live your life. Don’t wait for me, daddy.

[ Sheila chuckling ]

Rj: So, the whack job, sheila, is finally behind bars, huh? You know, if the whole fashion gig doesn’t work out, you can totally get a job as an undercover cop, mr. 21 jump street.

Ridge: No, no, no, I know. I thought about it. I think it’s time to hang up the shield, eh. Miss my family too much, especially your mom.

Rj: Yeah. How is mom doing?

Ridge: She’s great. You know her, always doing something. She’s this– this beacon of light for everybody. But there’s, um… how do I say this? There’s a sadness right below the surface. She misses you.

Rj: What? Are you trying to guilt trip me?

Ridge: Yeah.

Rj: Really? I video chat both of you, a lot.

Ridge: Once– once a month or twice a month is not a lot. It’s the opposite of a lot. I’m not giving you– no, I’m not giving you a hard time. I’m glad you’re doing what you’re doing, but your mom misses you. It’s a real thing. She’s gonna be so happy to see you in the flesh.

Brooke: A surprise?

Charlie: Oh, yeah. And i think you’re gonna like it.

Ridge: Oh, hey.

Brooke: Hey.

Ridge: Looking for something? What’s going on?

Brooke: Well, charlie mentioned a surprise.

Ridge: He did? Hm? I don’t know. Oh. Maybe it’s that thing, um, I was gonna show you back there.

Brooke: Oh. One of your creations.

Ridge: Well, it’s really something that we created together.

[ Brooke laughing ]

Brooke: Together? What have we created lately together?

[ Brooke gasping ]

Rj: Hi, mom.

Brooke: Ah! What? Rj?

[ Brooke laughing ] I can’t believe this. What? You’re– you’re really here.

Rj: In the flesh, here.

Brooke: My god. This is just so– so bizarre. I was just talking to hope about you, saying how much I missed you. Wait, did you know about this?

Ridge: Oh, he didn’t tell anybody he was coming. He’s full of surprises.

Brooke: Oh, you are. Okay, so does this mean you’re gonna stay awhile?

Rj: Well, I… do have a channel that’s blowing up.

Brooke: I know. We follow you.

Rj: I’ve got some offers to go to some pretty cool places too. Costa rica’s on the table, thailand.

Ridge: Offers? What do you mean offers? You get paid for that?

Rj: Yeah, dad. Come on. You know the drill. I’m an influencer now. I haven’t hit you up for money in ages.

Ridge: That is true.

Brooke: From your posts, we’ve seen that you’re here, there and everywhere.

Rj: Yes, yeah, and I’ve been a real rolling stone as of lately too. You know, just go, go, go and… anyways, what I really– what I really want is to spend some time with you guys.

Brooke: Really?

Rj: Yeah. I figured I’d stick around and post some L.A. Content for a while, if that’s okay.

Brooke: Oh, my god! Is that okay? Of course, that’s okay.

Ridge: It’s all we ever wanted. It’s great.

Brooke: Oh, my god. We just miss you. Miss you so much. I’m just so glad that you’re home, honey.

Ridge: May I?

Brooke: Of course.
