Eric: Mm-hmm. Not bad.

Lilah: Not bad? This gown’s exquisite.

RJ: It’s quintessential classic Forrester, Granddad.

Eric: Let Angelo know that the– everything is on the–

RJ: They’re in his inbox already.

Lilah: Adjustment or not, this is spectacular.

Eric: Thank you, Lilah. Thank you.

Lilah: Mm-hmm.

RJ: Come on.

[ Eric coughing ]

RJ: Hey, Granddad. Are you all right?

Eric: Yeah. As I’ll ever be, yeah.

Donna: Eric’s dying. I still can’t believe it.

Katie: Have you had any luck trying to convince him to be open with the family?

Donna: He refuses. He doesn’t want that kind of attention or worry. He is insistent on living while he’s still alive.

Esther: Wow.

Receptionist: Give me a minute. Let me go check with Luna.

Lauren: Okay.

Esther: Lauren, I can’t believe that you brought me here to Los Angeles for the big Forrester fashion show. Grateful doesn’t even begin to cover it. Thank you.

Lauren: Of course! Eric sent me two tickets. You said you always wanted a Forrester Creations original and voila, here we are. See? Dreams do come true.

Esther: Mm-hmm.

Luna: Yep. They’re signed and at the reception desk, Carter. Great, will do. Hi!

Lauren: Hi!

Luna: Ms. Fenmore, I’m Luna. We talked on the phone earlier.

Lauren: Yes, pleasure! This is my guest, Esther Valentine.

Luna: Hi, nice to meet you!

Esther: This– this is incredible.

Luna: Oh, tell me about it. I’m an intern and I just started like, a few weeks back and I– I still can’t believe it. How was your flight?

Esther: Oh, it was magical. I mean, flying in the clouds, Champagne in hand and arriving in Los Angeles? I mean, I– I truly feel like I’m dreaming.

Luna: That’s amazing. Uh, well, uh, Mr. Forrester is just finishing up a fitting, but he’ll be available shortly.

Esther: Oh. I can’t believe that I’m actually gonna meet the Eric Forrester.

Charlie: No, no, no. Pammy, sweetie, you gotta come to the fashion show. I mean, it’s Eric versus Ridge. I mean, you know, two titans slugging it out on the runway. I got a chair for you right here. Y– yeah. Honey, you can bake lemon bars anytime. It’s– yeah, no, no. I understand. I– I just– okay. I miss you, you know.

[ Phone beeping ]

Charlie: Hello? I’m such a loser when it comes to love.

Luna: Um, Eric should be finished shortly.

Lauren: Okay. Thank you, Luna.

Esther: Gosh. I have always dreamed of getting a gorgeous Forrester original gown, just like Mrs. Chancellor used to wear.

Lauren: Aw. Well, you may get that chance. Life is too short not to enjoy it, right?

Katie: What is it?

Donna: Oh, it’s just nothing. It’s, uh… I had a really nice moment with Eric earlier and uh, I was, uh, pushing him to, you know, stop this challenge and tell Ridge what was really going on and um, he, as he always does, charmed me into not worrying. And I said I was, uh, behind him 100%. ‘Til the end. I just, uh, never realized that the end… that was, um, before the diagnosis, obviously.

Katie: Did the doctor really say only six more months?

Donna: Yeah. That’s why last night, I tried to convince him again and again to tell the whole family what is happening with him and he refuses to be pitied. What am I supposed to do, Katie?

[ Eric coughing ]

Eric: Excuse– excuse me.

[ Eric coughing ]

[ Eric panting ]

RJ: Seriously, Granddad, are– are you okay?

Eric: Yeah. Right as I can be.

RJ: Are– are you sure? Do you want me to get you some water?

Eric: No, I’m okay. I’m okay. Yeah, I’m good.

Luna: We’re here, Mr. Forrester.

Eric: Hi, Lauren Fenmore! Let the celebration begin.

Lauren: Eric.

Eric: Hello. I see you met Luna. She’s our– our newest intern and this is my youngest grandson, RJ.

Lauren: Ridge, Junior.

RJ: That– that is me. That’s what I have to live up to. It’s nice to meet you. I’ve heard a lot about you.

Lauren: Oh. Good things, I hope?

RJ: Um…

Eric: Now, you need to get out of here before you get me in trouble here.

RJ: Okay. Actually, I’m gonna check on– on those, uh– the notes. Make sure they’re locked in.

Eric: Okay, good. Thanks.

RJ: See you later. It was nice meeting you.

Lauren: It was nice meeting you too.

Eric: Wow, look at you. Beautiful as ever.

Lauren: Thank you.

Eric: I’m so glad you can join us for this.

Lauren: Well, when I got your invitation, I got on the next plane to L.A.

Eric: Good.

Lauren: Thank you so much for having me.

Eric: Of course. Of course. When– when– when this came up, I thought it was a no-brainer. I– I was so glad you said yes. Thank you. You’re gonna love this. This is my best collection ever. My grand finale.

Lauren: Well, I wouldn’t miss it, but what? What do you mean your grand finale?

Esther: Lauren and Mr. Forrester go way back. I’m sure they have a lot to catch up on.

Luna: What a beautiful purse.

Esther: Thank you. It was a gift from Mrs. C. Uh, Mrs. Chancellor. Katherine Chancellor of Chancellor Industries. I worked for her many, many years.

RJ: Hey, Luna. I need to talk to– oh, I’m sorry. Were you guys having a conversation? My bad. Let me introduce myself. I’m RJ. It’s a pleasure to meet you.

Esther: Oh. Ester Valentine, guest of Lauren Fenmore. I’m so pleased to meet you. I– I follow you online.

RJ: No, you don’t. Do you really?

Esther: I do.

RJ: That’s amazing. I– I really wish we could chat more. I’m so sorry, but actually, I have to take her away from you. We– there’s a shipment, there’s an issue. Something’s still stuck in customs. I’m so sorry.

Esther: Oh, no, no. It sounds important. You– you go, go. I’ll wait here for Lauren and Mr. Forrester.

RJ: Pleasure to meet you.

Charlie: Not so fast, young lady.

Esther: Oh.

Katie: I’m so sorry, sis. I mean, this has just happened so fast. Arthritis, carpal tunnel, coughing up blood. It’s just horrible. Poor Eric.

Donna: I mean, I wasn’t kidding myself. I knew that he was older. There’s a little age difference between– oh, stop. Between us. But I just, you know, he’s so strong and so– so vibrant. I just… always imagined we’d have so many more years together, you know?

Katie: Yeah.

Lauren: So, can we talk about the elephant in the room? Or should I say the devilishly handsome designer in the room?

Eric: Ah.

Lauren: Why are you not in your office? I almost corrected Luna when she brought me here, but to my surprise…

Eric: Well, it’s a little situation that I hope to have resolved very soon.

Lauren: Hm. Does this have anything to do with the way you were talking before? Eric, you’re at the top of your game as an artist. Why are on earth would you think that this is your grand finale?

Eric: Well, I appreciate the flattery, I really do, but, uh, I’m not as young as I used to be and time’s creeping up on me. Not sure how much I have left.

Charlie: Well, let’s just see what you’re packing here, little missy. A-ha! It’s, uh, a feather duster. I know it looks innocent, but you know what this could do in the wrong hands?

Esther: Well, I– I take it wherever I go. I– I’m a compulsive cleaner.

Charlie: Me, too.

Esther: Oh. Um, we haven’t been formally introduced. I– I’m Esther Valentine, guest of Ms. Lauren Fenmore from Genoa City, Wisconsin. We’re– we’re here for the Forrester fashion show.

Charlie: Armed with your, uh, lethal feather duster.

Esther: Oh. Well, I’ve always been told to leave the place cleaner than when you arrived.

Charlie: Sure. Yeah.

Lauren: Esther? Oh, sorry. Um… someone would like to meet you.

Esther: Oh, gosh. Um, sorry. I– I have to go, um…

Charlie: Right. Oh, uh– uh, Charlie.

Esther: Oh, Charlie.

Charlie: Charlie. Okay.

Esther: Bye.

Charlie: See you later.

Luna: Okay, so apparently, there was a mix up with the tariff classification codes, but Desmond is working on it and on his end to update customs. Did I lose you?

RJ: What? Sorry.

Luna: Um, you seem worried. Is it about the shipment or… it’s about your grandfather?

[ Eric coughing ]

Eric: Hey. Ah. Is this the famous plus one I’ve been hearing about?

Lauren: Yes. Eric Forrester, this is Esther Valentine.

Eric: Esther, hello. It’s great to meet you. Welcome. If I’d known that you were gonna bring such VIP people, I would’ve cleaned up around here a little bit. Hi.

Esther: Hi. Oh, my.

Katie: You know, speaking from experience, there’s always a chance that Eric could beat the odds.

Donna: Well, you, you’re a medical marvel.

[ Donna laughing ]

Katie: I am, aren’t I?

Donna: Yeah, you are.

Katie: Still, you know, you keep telling me that Eric wants to live until he dies. Well, I think you need to adopt that same mindset. I mean, go back to the way you were thinking before the diagnosis. Just savor every single second you have with Eric, until the end.

RJ: You’re right. I am concerned. My granddad’s working on this collection for– for weeks now. He’s been working so hard. You know, he’s got all this energy, which is great, but you know, it’s– obviously, it’s taking a toll. His tremors have gotten worse. He– he has this cough now, which is awful, and it wasn’t there before. Yeah, I am concerned about him. But, at the same time, you know, his– his positivity and his just, like, raw belief in his vision for all of this, it actually has me excited about a fashion show, so…

Luna: Well, you should be. I mean, you’re a huge part of Eric’s collection.

RJ: Thank you. I just can’t wait for all this to be over so he can just focus on himself and his health.

[ Luna chuckling ]

RJ; What?

Luna: Oh, nothing. It’s just, you just keep proving what a wonderful, caring guy you are. No wonder why I like you so much.

Katie: Life is short. We try not to take it for granted. And one day, we wake up and someone we love has been taken from us. I know this is heartbreaking, but I just want you to take it as an opportunity. You know how much time you have left, so honor Eric. Love him and support him.

Donna: Okay, I’ll try. I’ll really, really try. It’s just so hard. I’m so scared for Eric.

Katie: Yeah.

Eric: So, you two know each other through Katherine Chancellor?

Lauren: Right. Esther worked with her for years.

Eric: Wow. I always admired her. I think she was an incredible woman.

Esther: She was so classy and elegant. I remember how especially beautiful Mrs. C looked whenever she wore a Forrester original.

Eric: Well, she’s the one who made the gown sing, isn’t she? Well, I’m so happy that you’re here to see us for this. I promise you an event tomorrow that you’ll never forget.

Esther: Oh, so exciting.

Lauren: I don’t want to interrupt your process anymore and you should get back to work.

Eric: All right. Thank you. It’s great to see you.

Lauren: Sweetheart.

Eric: Yeah. And lovely to meet you.

Esther: Oh. Oh, my goodness.

Eric: I’ll see you tomorrow.

Lauren: Okay. Goodbye.

[ Eric coughing ]

Donna: If only the world knew the truth. Eric is dying.
