Eric: Look who’s here. Well, it appears that, uh, ridge was able to talk you into coming into the office.

Rj: Well, of course, he promised me lunch with you, granddad.

Ridge: You know, I thought we could bring our favorite influencer to our favorite take-out restaurant, see what he thinks. If he likes it, he can tell his friends and his followers can blow it up.

Rj: Hey, if we do that, you’ll probably never be able to get another order in.

Ridge: That’s a good point. Let’s not do that.

Eric: You know, ridge junior seems to be just about as popular as you were at his age.

Ridge: Easy, almost.

Rj: Hey, hey, hey, hey, neither of us are as big a deal as you are, granddad.

Eric: I’m glad you realize that. It’s good to see you, welcome back.

Rj: Good to see you too.

Ridge: Couldn’t agree more.

Rj: Thanks, dad.

Thomas: You know, zende suggested that we do thicker braiding.

Hope: To give it more structure.

Thomas: Yeah, but I’m thinking maybe just on the sides.

Hope: Yeah, so it doesn’t–

Both: Break up the flow.

[ Hope chuckling ]

Hope: I swear, thomas, sometimes you can read my mind.

Daniele: Well, I have to congratulate you, deacon. You’re doing an amazing business over here.

Deacon: Oh, thank you, chef daniele. I gotta tell you, it means a lot coming from a world-renowned chef like yourself.

Daniele: Well, you know, I have to be honest. When I sold the restaurant to you, I was a little bit nervous, but il giardino is a hit. Well done, deacon.

Deacon: I gotta say, our clientele, they expect a lot.

Daniele: But the pizza must be perfect.

Deacon: Mm-hmm. Oh.

Daniele: Look at that.

Deacon: Yes. This is amazing. So much flavor in the crust and the– the texture. How do you do this?

Daniele: When you have a lot of business, you turn up the heat.

Deacon: So cook it faster.

Danielle: No, no, no longer. Slower and longer.

Deacon: Longer.

Danielle: Yes. A drop in 15 degrees temperature, it will make the crust go puffier, airier, crispier. Look at that.

Deacon: Well, if it tastes as good as this one, I’m gonna have to hire a bouncer to handle the lines outside.

Daniele: Cheers this.

Deacon: Yeah. Mm. So good.

Deacon: All right, enough pasta.. I’m gonna eat this whole damn pie. Chef, I just want to thank you so much for– for putting your faith in me, for your wisdom and your guidance. You’re the best.

Daniele: Well, my mom in naples was the best. She taught me. I’m teaching you and look at you, deacon, you’re a success. Good job.

Deacon: Well, I hope so. I mean, I got a long way to go, but uh, I’ll tell you I wouldn’t mind making a little more money.

Hope: Where is that sketch that you were showing me earlier? The one you were working on?

Thomas: Uh, this one?

Hope: Oh, yes. Oh, it turned out so great. I love that you brought the pattern all the way down. I mean, it really helps the way that it–

Thomas: The way that it drapes.

Hope: Exactly.

Thomas: Yeah.

Hope: You know, thomas, no one does casual sophistication the way that you do.

Thomas: Hey, that’s the heart and soul of california fashion, right? And that’s what forrester creations is known for. But we always do it with a little bit of an unexpected twist.

Hope: Um, segue, uh, speaking of unexpected twists, have you seen much of rj since he’s been back?

Charlie: Oh, well, you look at this. What do we have here? We’ve got double trouble. Right here at our stage. We got ridge senior and ridge junior. Welcome.

Rj: Hey, charlie. Do you have that, uh, new badge for me?

Charlie: Yeah, I– yeah, I, but you know, we need to redo the picture because your I would– it’s on pammy’s desk.

Ridge: It’s a good thing to have. You’re gonna come in every day. You should have one.

Charlie: What? What? That’s great. Welcome aboard rj.

Rj: No, no, not quite, charlie.

Eric: Maybe, uh, maybe someday.

Rj: I mean, if I was working here, it would give me more time to hang out with the coolest guy I know.

Charlie: Oh, stop.

Eric: It’s me.

Ridge: Well, here we are. Finally got you back here from halfway across the world. Now, just gotta figure out how to keep you. People call it the biggest smalltown festival in minnesota.

Daniele: You want to make more money, deacon?

Deacon: Doesn’t everybody? Which is why I’m gonna be hiring a new wine sommelier. And as a matter of fact, I should have one coming any minute.

Daniele: That’s a great idea.

Deacon: You know, il giardino is a classy place. We gotta– we gotta lean into that, you know. Really step it up, find somebody who knows what they’re doing, with some flair, with some sprezzatura. You know, that’s– that’s where you really make the money.

Daniele: Of course, I agree on that. But remember, people come in for the food. Freshest ingredients from the farmers’ market. The local produce is everything. That’s what people come in–

Deacon: No, I get it. I get it. I mean, if I don’t do those things right, all the flash in the world isn’t gonna make a difference.

Daniele: Well, you are my friend.

Deacon: Oh, come on, you gotta go so soon?

Daniele: Yes, I’m off, my friend.

Deacon: Oh, chef daniele, thank you so much for everything. For your advice, your friendship. Don’t be a stranger, okay?

Daniele: I won’T. Remember, keep up the quality and the money will come, my friend. Ciao.

Deacon: Ciao. Money, money, money, money, money. Show me the money!

Boucie: Did somebody just say my favorite word? Money!

Rj: So, tell me about the hot new takeout place.

Ridge: Dad, let me ask you something. Why is it every time I bring up work, this one changes the subject?

Charlie: Well, uh, lunch will unfortunately have to wait. Uh, the big boss has a meeting.

Ridge: No, my schedule’s clear.

Charlie: Nah, nah, nah, nah, no, the O.G. Big boss. The original uh, big, in this case, the original granddaddy big boss, this guy, him.

Ridge: Excuse me.

Eric: Yeah, thanks for the reminder. I appreciate it, charlie. It’s a video conference. It shouldn’t take too long.

Ridge: Why don’t you take it here?

Rj: Yeah, I– I can help you with the lighting, the background.

Eric: You know, actually I have the ring light and the tripods set up just down the hall, so I’ll do that.

Rj: Wow, I’m impressed.

Eric: Well, I have an influencer friend who gave me some tips, you know. I know how to do this.

Rj: Well, it’s nice to know I have at least one big time celebrity follower.

Eric: I’m proud of you. I’ll be right back.

Rj: All right.

Ridge: Well, there you go. The forrester men, now they know how to put on a show. Your granddad taught me, but it turns out no one had to teach you. You know all this stuff already. You know what? That kind of knowledge could come in very handy around here.

Thomas: You know, when you asked me back to hope for the future, I vowed to do it right this time. Because that’s what you and the company needed from me, and douglas too. Total commitment. And that’s how this company started, you know. Granddad was totally committed to what he was doing and I’m gonna be that and more. I’m gonna take hope for the future beyond anything forrester creations has ever done.

Hope: Yeah. Well, we hit a slump when we could least afford to have one and things looked pretty bleak, but thanks to your help, we were able to turn things around.

Thomas: Thrilled to do it.

Hope: Yeah, I just wanna make sure though that you don’t get so caught up in this, that you don’t have any time for yourself, or to spend with douglas.

Thomas: Oh, I promise that’s not gonna happen. And we had so much fun at the game last weekend.

Hope: Remind me again, how many hot dogs did you let that boy eat? Was it?

Thomas: Uh, not as many as me. Look, I promise it wasn’t as many as me. And uh, and I also– gosh, we had– we always have fun when we’re together, but um, I– I did let him know that obviously you and I are just really busy right now.

Hope: That is true. And I guess that answers my question from earlier, about rj. I mean, I know you saw him when he first got home, but I’m guessing you haven’t had any time to spend with him since?

Thomas: Not really. Honestly, we just haven’t crossed paths or had a chance to connect.

Hope: So, you haven’t been avoiding rj at all? And I’m just curious about how you really feel about rj being back. That’s all. She’s feeling the power of listerine.

Boucie: Might you be deacon sharpe, the proprietor of this fine dining establishment?

Deacon: Ah, yeah. And you are?

Boucie: Count boucie, master sommelier to the stars and the answer to all your dreams. It’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance fine, sir.

Deacon: Uh, yeah. Pleasure’s mine. Who’s this?

Boucie: Uh, that’s my grandson.

Orville: Hi.

Deacon: Hi.

Boucie: I hope it’s all right that I brought him along.

Deacon: Yeah, no problem.

Orville: Gramps, I’m hungry.

Boucie: Ah, we’ll get something to eat in a little while. Just go sit down and–

Orville: But gramps, I’m hungry.

Boucie: Just sit down. We’ll be right with you.

Deacon: I’m guessing you saw my ad for a wine expert?

Boucie: And count boucie is the man you are looking for.

Deacon: Uh-huh.

Thomas: How do I feel about rj being back? I think it’s great.

Hope: Okay. I wasn’t sure.

Thomas: Well, I mean, I know that dad and brooke really missed him.

Hope: Well, so have I.

Thomas: You understand why he stayed away though, right? He just wanted to avoid the family drama.

Hope: Yeah, but he knows we’re past that now.

Thomas: Yeah, he does.

Hope: Yeah, I mean, I’ve been updating him on everything. I mean, mom and taylor are being besties now. Bill helping ridge put sheila back in jail. I mean, douglas is home. He knows we’re on better terms now.

Thomas: Yeah. Everything seems kind of copacetic, doesn’t it?

[ Hope chuckling ]

Hope: Let’s hope it stays that way.

Thomas: I don’t see any reason why I shouldn’T.

Hope: Wow, that is good to hear. I just know that I’m thrilled that rj is back home, in los angeles, but I understand if your feelings are a little more complicated, nuanced, complex.

Rj: You know, I’m not kidding. Grandpa is 100% a-list.

Ridge: Ha. He would love to hear you say that. And it’s great to see him so happy with donna too.

Ridge: Yeah. Well, you know, those logan women bring it out in the forrester men.

Rj: Oh, yeah. And vice versa.

Ridge: Well, it’s working for them.

Rj: But not you and mom?

Ridge: Listen, your mom and I, we– we have some great memories and we created you. This incredible kid.

Rj: Well, it’s great that she’s in a happier place now.

Ridge: It is great.

Rj: You look happy too.

Ridge: Of course, I’m happy, you’re back. I mean, your mom and I, we couldn’t be happier.

Rj: Well, I mean, I’m– I think the whole truce with taylor plays a part in it too, right?

Ridge: Yeah. No, I’m sure it does. And– and if I had known that that was a possibility, I would have encouraged it years ago.

Rj: Well, you know, from what I’ve heard, it definitely sounds like you, uh, played a part in making it happen, so.

Ridge: Really? You’re gonna do that?

Rj: Yeah.

Ridge: So you came back just to rub it in. Is that it?

Rj: No, dad. I– I’m just, I’m– I’m just curious, you know what’s going on between you and mom?

Deacon: Uh, so you’re a count?

Boucie: Uh, at your service.

Deacon: And a wine sommelier?

Boucie: Not any wine sommelier.

Deacon: All right, you– you service the stars.

Boucie: Uh, you inquired about said services. You won’t find anybody better than count boucie. I have an exceptional wine mind and a distinguished palate. Give me a chance and uh, I’ll prove it to you.

Deacon: Um. Oh.

Hope: I just get it, okay? It’s your baby half-brother rj. I understand if there are some competitive feelings there.

Thomas: He, look, he hasn’t been around in a long time and it may take us a minute to– to reconnect, but I don’t see him as competition. And also– oh yeah, I– I– I look, I promise. I– I meant what I said. I’m glad that he’s back and if he wants to come and work here, I will make him feel welcome.

Hope: Of course, you would.

Thomas: Look, I am glad that he’s back, but more than me, I think that your mom and my dad are really glad that he’s back.

Ridge: What did you ask me? You asked me how things are between me and your mom? Was that it?

Rj: No, if you don’t want to talk about it–

Ridge: No, it’s not that I don’t wanna talk about it. I just– I’d appreciate it if you’re not gonna play matchmaker.

Rj: No, dad. Come on, I’m not gonna do that.

Ridge: Well, we’ve already had it, right? Steffy and thomas, they wanted me back with their mom and that didn’t work out well.

Rj: Yeah, well, thomas did a little more than he should have. But like I said, I don’t wanna get involved in any family drama.

Ridge: Well, I think that’s wise.

Rj: Thanks.

Ridge: And as far as your mom and me, we’re um, I don’t know. We’re just chilling.

Rj: Chilling.

Ridge: Yeah, chilling. We’re just gonna leave it alone for now.

Rj: Right. ‘Cause you’re so good at that. Come on, dad. I know what you’re like when you set your mind on something, talk to me, talk to me.

Ridge: Now, that’s another forrester trait that you were given.

Rj: Yeah, it’s an invaluable one, as long as we’re not butting heads.

Ridge: We’re not, right? We’re not butting heads.

Rj: No, no, no, not us.

Ridge: You know why? ‘Cause I’m glad that you’re here. I’m– I’m so happy to see you and so impressed with the man that you’ve become. The man that– that you’re becoming. I need to talk about the future a little bit and it’s not, there’s no pressure here. It’s just– it’s what I told granddad, you know. You’re– you’re talented and you– you– you have, um, you have this passion and understanding for something.

Rj: And– and I’m– I’m using it.

Ridge: Yeah, I know you’re using it. Yes, you are. You’re traveling, you’re seeing the world, you’re– you’re– you’re living your best life and I love that. But you were given something. You were given a gift. I don’t know if it started with your granddad, I think it did, but he gave it to me. He gave it to thomas, you have it. It’s a gift to create beauty. And I see it in you. I see it in your work, I see it in your videos, your art. You look at– at the world in a– in a– in a very unique way and whatever you see, you find a way to– to make it tangible for everybody. I need you to do something for me. I need you to show me. No, I don’t, I– no, you don’t need to show me because I already know. You need to show yourself because I’m convinced you could be the greatest designer that forrester has ever seen.
