Katie: A vision in white. This magical creation will transform you to a place of fantasy and illusion. You’ll be floating on a cloud swept up in a dream. Forrester has pulled out all the stops with this look. Number 19.
Katie: This gown is a red-carpet vision of old hollywood meets modern elegance. It has a beaded diamond and crystal bodice. This stunning creation captures our imagination with a dramatic silk pleated bow, which flares to the ground to complete the train.
Esther: Oh, I have never, ever seen anything so beautiful. What– what– what number is it?
Lauren: Well, by your dot system…. 20.
Esther: Oh. Wow.
Countess: It’s not that bad.
Katie: Ladies and gentlemen, the designers behind the beautiful, stunning creations that we have had the privilege to see today, eric forrester and ridge forrester.
[ Audience applauding ]
Katie: Now, if any of you were inspired by what you saw, please make sure to get your orders in before it’s too late. Thank you for joining us at the house of forrester.
Ridge: Hell of a showing.
Eric: Yeah. My part of it, it was anyway.
Ridge: Wow. Okay.
[ Laughing ]
Ridge: May the best man win.
Eric: May the best man win. Yes.
[ Coughing ] You know that feeling of having to
Ridge: It’s a simple question. Do you have all the orders?
Carter: I was letting the champagne combat any indecisiveness, but I’ll be tabulating the orders soon.
Ridge: You’ll be– you’ll be tabulating? Wow. Look up tabulating. Just count ’em all up and tell me that I won.
Zende: It’s gonna be tight. You and your dad, though, you put together some amazing looks.
Paris: Sure did. And our donors for the foundation definitely agree. You should see the comments online.
Carter: So, does anyone know today was really a battle between you and eric?
Lauren: Hi. Well, esther insisted on hand delivering–
Esther: My order number.
[ Both laughing ]
Ridge: Well, that is a very good choice, mrs. Valentine.
Esther: Oh. Oh, please. Call me esther.
Ridge: Esther. Okay.
Countess: Almost forgot. My order.
Esther: Oh. That’s the same one that I wanted.
Countess: I don’t have to remind you what a longstanding, extremely influential patron of forrester creations I am.
Carter: We’re very aware.
Countess: Under no circumstances will I wear a gown owned by this simpleton.
Lauren: Excuse me?
Ridge: It’s all right. I got this. Um, I’m sorry, esther, but you put in your request first. So it’s– it’s your gown. Yours alone.
Countess: You can’t be serious! Ridge, look at her! She carries a feather duster in her handbag.
Ridge: Countess, sorry.
Countess: You have made a very big mistake. I will never buy another forrester original again. Or shop at fenmores.
Lauren: Such a pity.
Esther: So… this gown… it’s mine?
Ridge: It’s yours, esther.
Esther: Oh. If mrs. Chancellor could see me now.
Lauren: Something tells me she had something to do with it. I’m so happy for you.
Ridge: Well, don’t forget you gotta come back for a fitting and, um, possible dinner.
Esther: I would be happy to return to los angeles. I can’t believe it. This is a dream come true. After all these years I’m finally getting a gown as beautiful as mrs. Chancellor’S.
Lauren: Aww. You deserve it.
[ Laughing ]
Luna: It is gotta be tough for you. But look, I know you’re dealing with a lot. And I know that you’re super worried about your granddad. But you also have to take a moment and realize what a major accomplishment you just had today. Your first fashion show.
Rj: I appreciate it. I’m– I’m proud of what we did today, but it’s hard for me to even think about it when all I’m doing is worrying about my granddad.
Brooke: Oh. Uh…
Brooke: [ Chuckles ] Hi. Uh, sorry. Uh, I don’t mean to interrupt. I just came to congratulate my very talented son on the amazing showing he did today.
Luna: I’ll, uh, give you two sometime alone. It was good seeing you, brooke. And congrats again, rj.
Brooke: Well, looks like I’m not the only one that’s happy for you.
Rj: Luna has been, uh, a huge help with everything.
Brooke: It’s okay. I don’t need to know the details.
[ Laughing ] I just wanted to tell you that I am very proud of you. Your father is too.
Rj: I appreciate it. You know about luna, I-I–
Brooke: Yeah. No, she’s a sweet girl. She is. And I could tell how you care about each other. But that’s not why I came here to talk to you. There’s something that is troubling me. It’s about your grandfather.
Charlie: I saw what happened. You, uh, you got the dress of your dreams. I am so, so happy for you, esther. And I know one thing for sure. You are gonna make that dress even more beautiful than it is.
Esther: I have to head back to genoa city with lauren. I– I’ve loved my time here and so enjoyed getting to know you, charlie. I hope that I’ll get to see you again when I come back for my fittings.
Charlie: Yeah. I don’t do fittings. Uh, I’m a security guy. I– I wouldn’t know how to put the measure at– oh, I see what you mean. Yeah, I’d really like it if you came back. But I love how happy this dress makes you.
Esther: Oh, it means more to me than anything in the world.
Charlie: I’m gonna miss you.
Esther: I’m gonna miss you, too.
Charlie: Yeah. Before you go…
Lauren: Esther, we need to get going.
Charlie: Goodbye, esther.
Esther: Goodbye, charlie.
[ Both panting ]
Charlie: Oh, uh, uh, cinderella. I mean, ms. Valentine, you forgot your gown.
Esther: [ Chuckles ] Thank you. You know, maybe this doesn’t mean more to me than anything in the world.
Charlie: Esther valentine. Oh, boy.
Zende: What did I tell you? Quite a rush, right?
Luna: Seriously, I’ll– I’ll never forget what today felt like.
Zende: And you never forget your first. Hey, some of the team is getting together to grab drinks later to celebrate. You should come. There they are. Let’s toast to forrester.
Paris: Oh. And the comments just keep coming in online. Tremendous hits.
Ridge: And that’s amazing. But there’s only one thing I’m interested in.
Carter: The orders are in. I’ll go tabulate– tally. I’ll tally them.
Ridge: It’s a better word.
Carter: It’s much better. And we’ll know who won the fashion challenge soon enough.
Eric: Very good. I’m dying to know.
Brooke: Honey, is something going on with your grandfather? I asked katie and donna during the show and I didn’t really get an answer. So why don’t you tell me? Look, I’m your mother. I know when something’s going on. Right now I can see that you’re very bothered. So why don’t you just talk to me? Honey, what is it?
Rj: I– I can’T. I can’t– I can’t do this any longer.
Rj: I– I can’t hold onto the secret.
Brooke: What do you mean? What secret? Is this about eric?
Rj: Mom, there’s something that you need to know. You and dad and the entire family. It’s time that all of you and everybody knew.
Eric: My last hurrah. My final collection.
Donna: Please don’t look at it like that. I am so very proud of you today. What you’ve accomplished. I mean, your designs were magnificent.
Eric: They were.
Donna: Yeah, they were. Really.
Eric: I have to win this showdown. I have to. I have to maintain my role as– as leadership of this company, as the founder of forrester creations. Ridge can’t take that away from me.
Brooke: So what is going on with eric?
Rj: I swear I wanted to tell you, but granddad made me keep it a secret. Donna wanted to tell you as well.
Donna: My sister knows about this? Okay, rj, whatever you’re keeping to yourself, I can tell it’s a huge weight on you. So please just talk to me.
Rj: The reason why granddad’s been so determined, I– I– i didn’t even know it at first because he’s been so– so positive and– and inspiring. Mom, the reason why he keeps calling this his grand finale, he’s dying, mom. Granddad’s dying.
Ridge: No, I like that. Victorious day. Yes. Quote from me. I, uh, all right. Uh, we are a classic company with cutting edge future. Sure. All right, I will. Thank you. Bye.
Carter: Modest much?
Ridge: Why? It was a great show.
Carter: It was. Yours and eric’s designs were inspired.
Ridge: But obviously one was more inspired than the other. So what happened? Did we both sell out?
Carter: No. One collection sold out. One didn’T.
Ridge: That’s what I’m— that’s what I’m saying. And I don’t wanna be disrespectful to my dad. He’s taught me everything I know, but today I had to beat him. So what are you doing? Get up. Give me a hug. Shake hands. Tell me I beat the old man. Tell me I won.
