Steffy: That’s exactly what I needed. Time away from the office to be with my handsome husband.

Finn: Hm, well, I’m not complaining. And I love the pop in. And thank you for this.

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: You trying to keep your mind off things?

Steffy: Would I use you like that?

[ Finn laughing ] Yeah. Okay. Maybe a little. But can you blame me? Trying to keep up with the charade in front of my grandfather when I know he’s–

[ Sighs ] I’m just heartbroken about all of it.

Ridge: Let me help you.

Eric: Yeah, ridge. I– I have this whole wellspring of ideas here. You know, dozens of them. I just– they’re right at my fingertips, I just can’t get them down on paper. That’s the trouble with it.

Ridge: That’s no trouble at all ’cause I could help you with that. Think about it. Us in the trenches together, shoulder to shoulder. Not just us, the three of us. Three generations. Dad, fathers, and sons, we– we could create something incredible. I just wanna work with you one more time. Can we do that?

Brooke: Eric is being strong and courageous.

Katie: He’s definitely putting on a brave front.

Brooke: And donna can’t convince him he doesn’t need to.

Katie: We are there for both of them. Whether eric wants to be honest about his condition or not.

Brooke: You know, that’s what makes this situation so tragic. He needs to be open with us and upfront. That way, we could help him. He needs to let us hold him and hug him and support him and love him. Before it’s too late.

Katie: We can’t deny eric his final wish. He thinks that the only people who know are donna, luna, rj and me. We have to keep it that way.

Brooke: Carrying the secret is tearing rj apart. And we’re trying to support him, but he is suffering terribly.

Katie: We all are.

Brooke: Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. If we could all just pull together. The word is spreading. Everybody knows. Eric’s situation is impacting every member of this family.

Steffy: It’s just not fair. Grandfather has so much to do still. So much to share.

Finn: You’re right. But I think that’s what’s driving him, you know? Keeping him going. And I know, I know that holding back isn’t who you are. I know you want things to be in the open and not pretend around your grandfather. Look, the good thing is, that’s how hard you love. You don’t hold that back at all. Right? You can’t love a little bit, you are full throttle, you are wide open.

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: You know, and we all feel it. I know I do. And so does your grandfather.

[ Steffy sighing ]

Ridge: I’m not saying you need my help. You can do this on your own, but you don’t have to.

Eric: It’s an interesting offer.

[ Laughing ] Come on. Rj’s been doing a wonderful job.

Ridge: Oh, look at you. Just in time. We were talking about rj.

Luna: Oh, one of my favorite topics.

Rj: Wow, did you two, like, practice this?

Ridge: We were just saying what a great job he’s doing with his grandfather.

Luna: Yeah, I can vouch for that.

Rj: Granddad, I– I think he’s right with what you guys were just talking about. I think he’d be a great addition to the team. Plus, you– you already won the fashion challenge, so you proved your point.

Ridge: Dad, I don’t– I don’t wanna steal your spotlight. I don’t want your spotlight. I just want to be in the room with you guys. All of us working together. It would be amazing. Look at him. This boy loves and admires you. There’s nothing he wouldn’t do for you.

Katie: I don’t think eric wants to be celebrated for his past accomplishments. I think he wants to go out on top, you know, as creative and vital as he’s ever been.

Brooke: We all want to help him, but it seems like help is a dirty word to eric right now. You know, ridge and i went to see his doctor when we found out. But I don’t get it. What’s happening? Is he seeing any specialists? I mean, does he really want to live?

Katie: Of course, he does. He wants to live every moment to its fullest.

Brooke: But nothing makes eric feel more alive than designing.

Steffy: [ Sighs ] I just can’t stop thinking about how important my grandfather is to our family.

Finn: Not to mention an inspiration to an entire industry.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. That’s very true. But when I tell our kids about him, it’s not gonna be about the accolades and the awards, no. It’s gonna be about the little things. ‘Cause the little things, that’s what really matters. All the times he took me in without a second thought. If any member of our family needed help or needed a place to go, you know that you could count on him. He’d be there for you.

Finn: His house is a safe place for you.

Steffy: Oh, yeah. Tell me about it. Taking the kids to the estate, I gotta say it was… really the only good thing at a really terrible time. And as hard as it was to be away from you, it was actually good to be with my grandfather. Especially now, knowing what I do. And seeing our kids with him, you know, by the pool, in– in grandmother’s garden. And he’d make those special blueberry pancakes almost every single day.

[ Laughs ] Man. When I was young, I used to think those– those blueberry pancakes, they could fix almost anything. If only it could fix this.

[ Steffy sobbing ]

Ridge: Well, the details are amazing, what is that? Embroidery?

Eric: It’s crystal beadwork. Yeah?

Ridge: It looks good.

Eric: Yeah.

Luna: Morning.

Ridge: Oh, what’s this?

Luna: Uh, you asked me to get lila so we can finalize number three.

Eric: Ah-ha. There you are. Ah, you look beautiful.

Ridge: So, hang on a second. So, this is number three. Not a tour de force, just– just a three.

[ Eric laughing ]

Eric: You hear that, lila? On you, everything’s a show-stopper.

[ Inaudible ] Great, huh? Okay. Excellent work, everyone. Excellent.

Rj: Hey, this is all you, granddad.

Eric: Well, the whole team did a great job. I appreciate it so much, lila, thank you. Thanks for coming down. Tell them, uh, this is all finished. It can go in the vault. Great. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Thank you, but flattery will get you nowhere. It will not get you a spot on this team.

Ridge: That’s not– I’m just– I’m calling them like I see them, that’s it.

Eric: Yeah, well, that’s something you obviously imparted to your son. He has incredible instincts.

Ridge: Yes, he does. And they’re only gonna get better the more he works with you. And thank you for taking him under your wing and showing him some of the things that you’re capable of. It’s quite obvious to everyone that you’re not passing the torch, you’re gonna light the way for the next generation. So, good for you. Keep walking. Take no prisoners and never surrender.

Rj: Have you seen my charger anywhere? Like earlier today?

Luna: I’m sure somebody’s got one that you could borrow. Well, I need to keep working, and it’s dead soon.

Luna: Hey, hey, hey.

Rj: What?

Luna: It’s okay.

Rj: It’s not okay. I just expressed to you. I need to finish writing this sketch. I need to finish this design.

Luna: Okay, and– and you will, you will, but right now you have to breathe. Hey.

Rj: What?

Luna: Better?

Rj: I’m sorry, I’m letting this get to me. I’m– it’s just starting to really hit me that he’s not gonna be here anymore, I–

Luna: No, no. You– you just have to think about the time that you have with him now. And you’re doing amazing, rj. Seriously, everyone is so proud of you.

Rj: I’m doing it for him.

Luna: You love him so much?

Rj: More than I can put into words. Which is what I’m trying to do with this. I’m trying to put everything that he means to me, every– everything that he’s taught me, I’m trying to put it all right here. And I– I just hope he can feel it when he sees it.

Luna: I think everyone can.

Rj: If this really is gonna be eric forrester’s last collection, I’m gonna make it one that no one can stop talking about.

Finn: Take his vitals and I’ll be down there in a minute. Okay. Thanks. Hey, sorry about that.

Steffy: It’s fine.

Finn: So, no one’s told you what’s actually going on with eric?

Steffy: My dad doesn’t even know. Maybe donna, but all the information that we’re getting seems third-hand and vague.

Finn: And you said his first symptoms were tremors?

Steffy: Yeah, in his hands.

Finn: Weakness?

Steffy: It seemed like arthritis. And then, he started coughing up blood. I don’t know. Could the two things be related? Like the doctor said, maybe it’s tias, which are mini-strokes. Does that sound right?

Fine: Yeah, I– I– honey, I’d have to look at his chart before…

Steffy: Oh, god. I hate this feeling. I hate it. I don’t know what’s going on. I don’t know what to do, what to expect. Like, if we knew a diagnosis, I could at least come to you or I could look into other treatments, but everything just seems so hush-hush. I– I– I– I can’t help him. And I hate that feeling most of all.

Ridge: Do you mind?

Eric: Mm, uh, no, no, go ahead.

Ridge: What about this? What about we lose a little bit of weight right in here? What do you think of that?

Eric: Yeah. You knew exactly what I was going for, didn’t you? This is it. Yes.

[ Eric laughs ]

Brooke: Well, this is wonderful to see. Two of fashion’s greatest designers collaborating agai feels like old times.

Ridge: Also, the best times of my life.

Eric: Yeah, mine too. What I wouldn’t give to relive some of those times.

Ridge: Relive them? No, no, I’m– not me. They live in here the way they’re supposed to live. You and me on the runway and you backstage, rallying the troops. What a pep talk. The best pep talk I ever heard. You know the one I’m talking about?

Eric: Yeah.

Ridge: Well, those memories stay in here the way they are. Cemented and lifted up by gratitude and pride and– just leave those alone and maybe make some more memories. What do you think about that?

Eric: Yeah, my boy. Whoa! The new iphone 15.With that amazing camera. I wish my family had them. You’re an action star… take action! Join t-mobile!

This holiday at t-mobile,

get four new iphone 15 on us,

and four lines of unlimited

for $25 bucks a line.

Rj: Luna, I couldn’t– I couldn’t have faced this without you.

Luna: I’m just trying to be as good for you as you are for me.

Rj: As good for you. You– you’re better and– and some. You are. Seriously, every– every single second that I’ve been in here and I’ve been worried about my granddad’s health condition, how much time we have left, you — you’ve been there to lift me up, remind me that we’re fulfilling his last wish and that we’re doing it his way and… you know, I, um… I’ve never trusted someone this much before in my entire life.

Luna: Hey, I mean it, when I say it. I’m always here for you, rj. I’m not gonna go anywhere.

Finn: Has anyone mentioned how eric’s symptoms are progressing? Like is he– is he coughing more, short of breath? Uh, like his voice getting weaker?

Steffy: I haven’t noticed anything like that, but it doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

Finn: Oh, we can’t cover everything. You know, as time– as time goes on his– his limitations, they’re– they’re gonna become more apparent. Yeah.

Steffy: And what are we doing? Pretending everything is fine? We don’t have time for this.

Finn: You just– you’re gonna have to just be close to him, you know, and– and be there.

Steffy: No, of course I am. I’m gonna try to help out in any way I can, but… what I’ve been told is that the… so, the end is drawing near for my grandfather and there’s nothing anyone can do about it.

Eric: All right, that’s a– that’s enough sentimentality.

[ Eric chuckling ]

Brooke: Nothing wrong with appreciating the past, especially one like yours, eric. All your success deserves to be celebrated.

Eric: Nah.

Ridge: We should also celebrate what he’s doing now.

Eric: Yeah, ridge is right, you know. Any designer worth his salt, you know, knows he is only as good as his last collection.

Ridge: That’s right, so onward and upward.

Eric: Mm-hmm. Only just a little slower than, uh, my pace for the last couple of years.

Ridge: You’re going slow? Because it seems like you’re churning them out.

Eric: Yeah, well rj has been doing a great job with me. I really appreciate it.

Brooke: And rj is honored to work with you. And I’m grateful for the time that you two spend together, developing this incredible bond. Ridge is right. It’s time to make new experiences. The passion that you have for your family and this business and your design. It’s wonderful times ahead.

Eric: Yeah. And a lot of work too. I can’t wait to see this collection come to life. I can’t wait.

Brooke: Okay, well, just– you don’t need to push yourself so hard.

Eric: Yeah.

Ridge: Sometimes it’s a good idea to just take– take something and let it percolate. Um, I offered dad that I could maybe help him with this collection a little bit.

Brooke: What? Really? Eric, that would be great.

Ridge: That would be great, but he hasn’t said anything yet. Listen, this competition was great, but I– I don’t– I don’t want to be at odds with you ever again.

Eric: I don’t want that either. This family… this family is best when we all pull together.

Ridge: Yeah, we are. Dad, you’ve given so much to all of us, the kids, grandkids. But the most important gift… was this. Of us connecting and having a place that we can call home. And you did that. So, be proud of that.

Eric: I am. I am. I’m proud of it, but I’m very proud of this collection right here.

[ Eric laughing ] There’s so much stuff here. I gotta get it out. It’s all in here, it’s just pouring out of me and it’s my whole life. It’s– it’s who I am. I have to get this all out and– and there’s so much of it. And I don’t know if you can understand this, but– but, uh, I just feel like I’m running out of time, sometimes.

Ridge: Yeah, we understand that, dad.

Eric: Yeah. Yeah.

Ridge: We all understand that.

[ Relaxing music ]

Ridge: It’s good to see you, thorne.

Thorne: You too, man.

Ridge: Been too long, brother.

Thorne: I know. I’m glad you called, though. Hopped the plane as soon as I could.

Ridge: Well, you were missed around here.

Thorne: I can see not much has changed. Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight at dad’s party.

Ridge: Yeah, about that.

Thorne: You wouldn’t tell me over the phone, ridge. What is it?

Brooke: Right, well, for what it’s worth, you both look beautiful.

Katie: Well, so do you. I know donna was really happy that we rallied.

Hope: It feels strange. I mean, it feels sad.

Katie: I know. Normally, we’re getting all dressed up because of something fun and festive.

Brooke: We have to make it fun, festive. We have to make it a joyous celebration for eric.

Eric: You’re beautiful, you– you’re an absolute vision.

Donna: This ol’ thing?

[ Both laughing ] You like it? Okay, now we have to get you all spiffed up and get the rest of your outfit on.

Eric: Yeah. You’re right. It takes a little longer to get me all together than it used to.

Donna: To me, you are always the most handsome man in the whole room.

Eric: Well then, that’s the only thing that matters.

Donna: Yeah.

[ Eric coughing ] Are– are you sure? Are you sure you have the strength to pull this party off tonight?

Rj: Wow. You look beautiful.

Luna: Thank you, rj. You’re not too bad yourself.

Zende: So, this party, do we all know the truth about granddad?

Thomas: Wait, you know?

Rj: Yeah, dad told him earlier.

Zende: It’s messed me up pretty bad, man.

Thomas: I’m sorry.

Zende: Hey, I have to apologize for coming down on you so hard. I didn’t realize why you were working with granddad. And I, um– I think it’s really cool that you’ve been helping him out.

Brooke: Thankfully, bridget’s on her way from new york. I just dread telling her about her father.

Hope: Well, we’ll all be there to support her.

Katie: And thorne, too, I– I saw him earlier in the hallway.

Brooke: Yeah, I’m glad he was able to take an earlier flight. I think ridge is telling him as we speak.

Thorne: Well, kristen, felicia and rick are on that safari in africa.

Ridge: Yeah, I know. They’re not going to make it back in time.

Thorne: Well, why did dad change his plans?

Ridge: That’s what I want to talk to you about.

Thorne: Is everything okay, ridge?

Ridge: No. Dad is not well.

Thorne: He’s sick?

Ridge: Yeah.

Thorne: Well, how serious is it, ridge?

Ridge: I guess there’s no easy way to tell you this. Dad is dying.

Eric: Okay. All right. All right. Oh! Geez. No, no, that’s– that’s perfect.

Donna: Sorry, okay, I’m going to get your jacket. Ah, I love this color. Let me have your arms.

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: There you go.

Eric: All right.

Donna: Other arm. Oopsie.

Eric: Can you get it? All right. All right. All right. This is good. Now, what about my hair? I used that hairspray you gave me, but it’s all crispy. So hard.

Donna: Just a little bit. Voila.

Eric: Thank you.

Donna: You look like, um, harrison ford.

Eric: Yeah?

Donna: Yeah.

Eric: All right, I’ll take it.

[ Donna laughs ]

Donna: You are the most elegant and handsome man I’ve ever laid my eyes on.

Eric: Ah, thank you. This, tonight– this– this party tonight, it’s going to be wonderful. One last family gather. Secret works! Ohhh yesss.

Zende: Maybe I’m in denial, but I assumed we’d have more time with him.

Luna: Eric’s condition is worse than it looks.

Carter: Yeah, he just covered it fairly well.

Zende: Granddad’s been here working on his new line. He’s been in great spirits. He’s been cracking jokes.

Carter: Zende, you saw him at his best. I did too. But his condition’s extremely grave.

Thomas: It’s clear that he doesn’t think he has long to live.

Carter: A goodbye party.

Hope: Okay, so katie went back to the house to help donna with eric, ridge is having a few of us meet here, thorne’s already here and now we’re just waiting on–

Bridget: There you are.

Brooke: Bridget.

Bridget: I’ve been looking all over for you.

Brooke: Oh, honey. So good to see you.

Bridget: You too. [ Laughs ]

Bridget: My little sis, it has been a little too long.

Brooke: Little?

Hope: I’m so happy you were able to make it.

Bridget: Me too. What is this occasion, though? It’s clearly not dad’s birthday. It’s the launch of his new line, right?

Brooke: Uh, I wish.

Bridget: Mom, what– what is that look about?

Thorne: Dad’s–

Ridge: Sorry, thorne. Sorry I have to tell you like that.

Thorne: Why didn’t he tell me? Why am I just finding out about this now?

Ridge: He doesn’t want anyone to know.

Thorne: Well, I’m not just anyone, ridge. I’m his son.

Ridge: Didn’t tell me either. Or brooke. As far as he’s concerned, there’s just a handful of people that know about his condition.

Thorne: So, you all are acting like you don’t know?

Ridge: Now you have to do the same.

Thorne: I don’t think I can do that, ridge.

Ridge: Hey, those are dad’s wishes.

Thorne: So, I’m just– I’m just supposed to let my dad go and– and not say anything, ridge?

[ Steffy sighs ]

Steffy: You know about granddad? I am so sorry.

Thorne: I’m– I’m not prepared for this. I’m not ready to let dad go.

Donna: Are you comfortable? Can I get you anything? And– and don’t you dare say a martini.

Eric: No this, uh– this actually helps.

Donna: Good. Hi.

Katie: Are you all right?

Eric: Yeah, yeah. I’m fine.

Katie: Eric, are you sure you want to go through with this?

Eric: Katie, the party is a go.

Katie: Please, eric, please let donna and me take you to the hospital.

Eric: No! We’re going to have this party! The party I’ve been dreaming about. Now, it’s going to be a wonderful party. A party that we’ll never forget. Looking for a smarter way to mop? Try the swiffer powermop. An all-in-one cleaning tool that gives you a mop and bucket clean in half the time

Brooke: I’m sorry, honey. I’m so sorry.

[ Bridget stammering ] I don’t know how this is– I don’t know how this is possible. Has he seen a specialist? Did he get a second opinion?

Brooke: His case has been reviewed by many oncologists and they’ve all said the same thing.

Bridget: There’s no known cure.

Brooke: I know this is devastating news and I’m sorry. I– I didn’t want this to be true. I just wish I could take your pain away.

Hope: Me too. I’m so sorry, sis.

Bridget: I was on the plane today. I got so excited to see you all. Especially daddy. I just really missed him. I really missed him. Now, you’re telling me he’s horribly sick with this disease. And on top of it, we have to put up a front? Like, I’m not allowed to know about it?

Hope: We’re struggling with it too and none of us are happy having to keep up this charade.

Bridget: This is ridiculous.

Brooke: No, this is, um– this is what eric wants. He wants us to all come together as a family and love each other and just have this big, joyous occasion and celebration.

Bridget: A celebration? What?

[ Bridget sobbing ] And they moved the party up. Mommy. Doesn’t have much time, does he? What did they tell him? I don’t know. [ Sobbing ]

Hope: It’s progressing faster than any of us realize.

Bridget: [ Sobbing ] Why didn’t anyone tell me? Oh, daddy. No!

Brooke: I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.

Bridget: How long does he have?

Katie: This all looks good.

Eric: So, do we have everything we need? We have enough wine?

Donna: Even the bottle of wine from your wedding with stephanie. You said you wanted to save it for a special occasion.

Eric: Well, here it is.

Katie: Here it is.

[ Eric laughs ]

Eric: I can’t wait to see this room filled with all the people I love. My friends and my family. A wonderful, wonderful party. Memories etched into my soul.

Bridget: Mom told me everything you’ve done for my dad. Thank you.

Rj: Of course. Of course.

Thorne: Yes. Thank you. Thank you both very much.

Rj: He’s going to be so happy the two of you are here.

Thorne: Yeah, well, there’s no other place I’d rather be than right here with my family.

Carter: Bridget, thorne, my heart goes out to you guys. Well, all of you, really. Eric is such an inspiration.

Ridge: All right, good. He’s all dressed up. So now we can go to a party that we shouldn’t be having, huh? This is going to take a toll on dad, you know that. It’s going to take a toll on all of us. So, let me ask you. If there’s anyone here who can’t pretend that everything is fine, anyone who thinks they can’t hide their grief, then maybe they should stay here ’cause tonight is– is not about grief and sadness. It’s about celebrating a great man, okay?

Ridge: Dad is getting weaker. We can all see that. And he’s going to need us as a source of power. So, this is the performance of a lifetime.

Thorne: I can’t promise that I won’t break down when I see him.

Bridget: Yeah, I agree with thorne, it–

Ridge: Let it out. Let the tears fall. Do it now.

Bridget: Are you serious? This is absolutely ridiculous. How is this world of make believe healthy? I mean, honestly, mom, this fantasy land where everyone is supposed to pretend that everything is okay? Dad is dying, ridge.

Ridge: You think this is what I want? This is what he wants. There’s going to be plenty of time to mourn him when he’s not watching us. So, right now, we need to do this for him.

Brooke: We need to remember how important this is for eric.

Ridge: It’s not going to be easy for any of us. We can do it. We have to. We’re going to bring joy and happiness, look at me. Joy and happiness for him. We’re gonna celebrate him. Can you do it?

Bridget: Of course.

Ridge: Game faces.

Bridget: Okay.

Ridge: Let’s go.

Bridget: Okay.

Brooke: It’s okay.

Katie: I just asked the server to come out with more so when everyone gets here, champagne out of the gates.

Donna: It’s all set.

Eric: Yeah, everyone’s going to be here very soon.

Katie: Uh, do you want me to put this away?

Eric: Would you? Yeah. Yeah, thanks.

Donna: Can I help you?

Eric: Yeah, my coat. Now remember, just not a word about my condition to anyone.

Donna: Yes.

Eric: We’re the only three people that know about it. And rj and luna. We’re the only ones, all right? It’s very important.

Katie: No problem.

Ridge: Dad.

Brooke: Hello. We have some special guests.

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: Oh, my god.

Eric: You’re a sight for sore eyes, the two of you.

Bridget: Hi, daddy.

Eric: Sweet girl. Come here. Ah! Look at you. You’re beautiful. What? You’re here? You got here? Just in the nick of time.

Thorne: Of course, I made it. I wouldn’t miss this for the world, dad.

Eric: You two. My kids. Oh, my kids– my kids are the best thing I ever did in this life. Here you are.

Thorne: We love you, dad.

Bridget: I would have brought logan, I just didn’t–

Eric: No, it was such short notice, so I’m so glad you came. You made the effort and– and I’m so grateful for that. I’m so glad to hear you. You can’t know how much that means to me.

[ All laughing ] Come on.

Eric: Ah, look.

Luna: Hi.

Eric: My talented grandson, there he is.

Bridget: Hi, guys.

Eric: And beautiful luna. You look– you look beautiful.

Luna: Thank you. Stamp of approval from the eric forrester. I’m– I’m so honored.

Eric: Good.

Zende: Hey, granddad.

Eric: Hey. More talented grandsons. Look at this. My cup runneth over. Hi. I’m glad you’re here, both of you, come here. Yeah, yeah. And you all, uh– oh, you dressed up for me too.

Thomas: Anything for you.

Zende: We knew how important this night was to you.

Eric: And what a wonderful night it’s going to be.

Thomas: Hm.

Eric: Carter, my friend. Come in, come in.

Carter: Hey, uh, thanks for having me.

Eric: Sure. Of course. You’re, uh, you’re family, carter. Never forget that.

Carter: I won’T.

Katie: All right. Who needs champagne? I see one handsome man definitely does.

Donna: So, I hope everybody is ready to party because eric is not wasting any time. He wants to make the most of every single minute that we have together.

Eric: We’re all here to enjoy ourselves and I want you all to enjoy each other. All right, I’m going to raise a toast, one of many toasts tonight, I’m sure. Uh, this is to all of you. Look at you. You look terrific. And I’m so glad to have you here in this– this big old house. You– you warm it right up. I want this evening to be full of happiness and– and music and love. I wish you could understand how special this is to me tonight, so I promise a night full of love and laughter and music and positive energy and that’s what I want you to give each other, and me. Would you give me that too? Okay? So, to, uh– to joy and laughter, hear, hear!

All: To love and laughter.

Hope: I think a dual marketing campaign could be beneficial for both hope for the future and the foundation.

Steffy: You wanna dip into their ad budget?

Carter: It’s something to consider, but, hope, you do realize this shift in priorities is only temporary? I mean, it’s only in– I’m sorry, ridge. I was only talking about eric’s collection.

Ridge: It’s okay. You’re not the only one thinking about his prognosis.

Steffy: How long do we have to keep up with this charade?

Ridge: He doesn’t want anyone to know he’s sick.

Steffy: He’s dying. So what are we supposed to do? Just have a party and pretend like everything’s okay?

Ridge: Well, he hasn’t set a date, so maybe we can change his mind.

Katie: This is crazy. You can’t throw a party today.

Brooke: Honey, you said yourself, eric passed out last night.

Donna: Yeah.

Katie: Did he lose consciousness?

Donna: He, um– he just collapsed into my arms.

Brooke: I’m sorry. You must have been terrified.

Donna: Honestly, I didn’t even know what was happening. I mean, he’s on this chaise lounge and– and suddenly he’s on the floor, and I– I ran over, and called his name, and– and nothing. And I just thought that this is it, this is it. This is how I lose my honey bear, it’s over.

Katie: But you didn’t, he’s– he’s okay.

Donna: Yeah, I– I mean, he’s– he’s not okay. He’s– he’s taking in oxygen. It just– it just makes it easier for him to– you know, easier for him.

Katie: He’s struggling.

Donna: Yeah, I– I moved him over to the guest house because, um, you know, there’s no stairs. It’s just easier. I– I really have to get back to him, I really do.

Brooke: Okay. Okay. We’re gonna call the caterers, and we’re gonna postpone this for another time.

Donna: No, no, you– you need to call everybody and tell them that the party’s happening today.

Katie: You can postpone this party until eric has a chance to recover.

Donna: He might not, katie. He hasn’t said it yet, but– but maybe there’s a reason why he’s so anxious to move this party up, okay? I– I really just have to get back to him right now.

Brooke: Okay, just tell him we’re thinking about him.

Donna: Okay. I will.

Katie: You can’T.

Donna: Oh, I’m sorry, I’m–

Katie: But we are going to pray for him whether he wants us to or not.

Donna: Thank you, so you’ll– you’ll tell everybody that it’s happening.

Brooke: Donna–

Donna: No, stop. Please. Please, for me. For the man I love. Look, do this for eric. Do it for him, because… this could be his last request. Okay? So, please, we cannot let him down.

Ridge: Well, maybe there’s still time to talk dad out of this celebration.

Hope: I don’t know. He seems pretty set on it.

Ridge: Maybe get rj involved.

Carter: Get him to convince eric to conserve his strength.

Steffy: If rj could have talked him out of it, he would have. I– I can’t just do this. Plaster a big smile on my face, and toast to a future when we know that granddad doesn’t even have one. I don’t think we need a big flashy event. We don’t even know how much time granddad has left.

[ Door opens ]

Eric: Hey.

Donna: Hey, I just, uh, brought you a few things over that I thought you might need from the house.

Eric: That’s okay. I’m not dead yet.

Donna: Eric, please, I– I told you that that’s not funny, it’s–

Eric: Yeah. All right. I’m sorry. You’re right. It’s not funny. I was just imagining the farewell party for me tonight.

Steffy: I don’t understand. Granddad’s a fighter. Why isn’t he fighting now?

Carter: Steffy, eric’s signing these documents doesn’t mean he’s giving up.

Steffy: Seems pretty clear to me he’s planning to die.

Hope: And also wants us to throw him a party. I don’t know, he seems a little scattered.

Steffy: Okay, so everyone knows what’s going on. Hope, carter.

Ridge: Zende. He kept asking me why he wasn’t the one working with granddad. He has the experience, he has the training. I didn’t want him to feel like he did something wrong, so I told him.

Steffy: Oh, my gosh. This is getting out of hand. The whole design team knows?

Hope: How long until someone slips up, and eric finds out that we’ve been lying to him this entire time?

Ridge: He’s not gonna find out, but it’d be a lot easier if we didn’t have this party. Hey, I texted you. You– you were at dad’s house, right? How is he?

Brooke: We didn’t get to see him.

Katie: He was resting in the guest house.

Ridge: The guest house? Why?

Brooke: It’s safer for him to be on the first floor right now.

Katie: He fell yesterday.

Carter: He what?

Ridge: Is he all right? Is he hurt?

Brooke: Uh, no. He’s okay. I mean, donna did say he’s on oxygen right now.

Ridge: He’s on oxygen?

Katie: Not full time. Just as needed. But things are kind of in flux, so he shouldn’t be going up and down stairs.

Steffy: Okay. That’s it.

Ridge: We can’t play this game anymore. Pretending that he’s okay. He’s in bed with oxygen? We’re not having this party.

Brooke: Ridge, come on. I know how you feel. I’m worried too.

Katie: But this party is happening. According to eric, this party is happening this afternoon.

[ Eric coughing ]

Donna: Eric, eric, please you need to rest, you– you shouldn’t be hosting a party tonight.

Eric: No, we can– I can. We will.

Donna: If you do, you know that everyone is gonna know that something is wrong.

Eric: No, no, I feel better. I feel– I feel better already.

Donna: If you wanna call your– your family, and have them come over, fine. If you– if you want to tell them the truth, then that’s fine.

Eric: No. No. I– I don’t– I don’t want this to be a wake. I want it to be a celebration. I don’t want them to be sad. Donna, look, I’ve– I’ve– I’ve had– I’ve had some time to reflect and to think about myself as an artist, as– as a father, as a man. And I– I wanna share that with them. I wanna share that with all of them. One– one last soiree.

Donna: Yeah.

Eric: Did katie tell them it’s tonight?

Donna: Yeah.

Eric: Yeah. I don’t want anyone to know about this. The house is ready?

Donna: Yeah, I just have, um, a few more things to do. Are you sure you wanna do this, eric?

Eric: And the house? That– that wonderful big old house. Where so many wonderful things have happened. My whole life and weddings and– and holidays and– and parties. Brooke and ridge met in that house.

Donna: [ Laughs ] Oh, yeah. They did.

Eric: I’ll be moving to another beautiful house soon. Beautiful crystal castle in the sky. I’m not afraid to look forward to that. It doesn’t scare me. But I really wanna be able to look back right now, and look back and– and– and remember things. And experience the things I did.

[ Emotional music playing ]

[ Crowd applauding ]

Eric: Today is mine, ridge.

Ridge: Grand finale, right?

Eric: My grand finale. That’s right. It’s been an incredible journey. I wouldn’t change that for anything. For anything.

Ridge: What do you mean this party is this afternoon?

Katie: People are setting up as we speak.

Brooke: It’s all arranged.

Steffy: Except telling the guests.

Katie: Well, donna wants us to spread the word.

Steffy: Well, donna has to talk granddad out of this.

Ridge: Is she pushing this?

Brooke: No. No, this is eric. He is determined to go through with this party.

Hope: Yeah, but why does it have to be today? Like–

Katie: I think he feels like he’s running out of time.

Brooke: And he could be.

Ridge: Well… if this party’s today, I gotta make some phone calls.

[ Phone beeping ]

[ Line ringing ]

[ Phone ringing ]

Thorne: Hey, big brother.

Ridge: Thorne, how are you?

Thorne: Well, I’m great. I’m looking forward to seeing you.

Ridge: There’s been a change of plans. Where are you?

Thorne: I’m at the airport. I’m flying into houston to visit some friends before coming into la.

Ridge: Well, you have to come to la right away.

Thorne: Why?

Ridge: Because the party is this afternoon.

Thorne: No, I spoke with dad before I booked my flight, ridge.

Ridge: Well, he changed his mind, the caterers are at the house right now.

Thorne: Ridge, kristen, felicia and rick are still on safari. There’s no way they can get to la today.

Ridge: I know that. I know. It’s not ideal, but just tell me you can be here.

Thorne: Well, yeah. I’ll change my flight now.

Ridge: Good. Dad’s gonna love seeing you.

Thorne: Ridge, what’s going on? Something seems off here, man. Why the rush?

Ridge: I’ll tell you when you get here.

Thorne: All right. I’m on my way.

Brooke: So, thorne’s coming?

Ridge: Yep. He’s gonna be devastated when he hears about dad.

Eric: I am– I am a lucky man.

Donna: Lucky that you have such good taste in women.

Eric: [ Laughs ] It’s true.

Donna: But I’m not just talking about the logans, you know.

Eric: No?

Donna: No.

Eric: You– you’re my love.

Donna: And you are my love. You changed my life forever, eric. But this party tonight, it’s not just– it’s not just about us. It’s about everyone that you love, everyone that’s special to you. And some of them will be here tonight, but some of them won’T. And I can think of one in particular that you have probably been thinking a lot about lately. Stephanie had a bigger impact than anyone else in your life, eric.

Eric: Can never forget about stephanie.

Donna: [ Chuckles ] Oh, she was a complicated woman. Strong and, um, judgmental, but fiercely devoted to you and your family.

Eric: She’s gonna have a lot to say to me when I see her.

[ Both laugh ] But I have my angel… right here with me. The most beautiful angel. My perfect, caring, loving donna. Stay with me to the very end. Yeah?

The subway series is

taking your favorite

to the next level!

Like the #20.

The elite chicken

and bacon ranch.

Built with rotisserie-style

chicken and double cheese. I love what I’m seeing here. That’s some well-coached chicken.

You done, peyton?

The subway series

just keeps gettin’ better.

[Coughing] Copd isn’t pretty. I’m out of breath, and often out of the picture. But this is my story. ( ) And with once-daily trelegy, it can still be beautiful. Because with 3 medicines in 1 inhaler, trelegy keeps my airways open

Ridge: Well, thorne changed his flight, he’s on way to la.

Steffy: Okay. A shame that kristen, rick, and felicia can’t make it.

Ridge: Well, dad knows where they are, he still changed his plans.

Steffy: As he clearly feels as though his days are slipping away.

Carter: The fall yesterday must have really shaken him up.

Hope: Okay, but what I don’t understand is why is donna going along with this, I–

Katie: Because eric is the love of her life. This might be his last wish. But it’s not easy. I mean, she’s terrified of the toll this will take on him.

Steffy: But we’re supposed to just pretend?

Brooke: It’s what he needs us to do.

Steffy: But can you really do that, honestly? Because I– I don’t think I can.

Katie: You can. You love him enough. You can.

Steffy: This is hard. I–

Ridge: It is hard. We gotta do it. He wants a regal, elegant, forrester affair, and that’s what I’m gonna give him. Get dressed up and smile the last smiles on our faces, and give him joy and happiness. Celebrate the best man we know. We have to.

Eric: I wish all my children were gonna be there.

Donna: You’re gonna see them, eric. Just maybe not tonight.

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: Yeah.

[Eric laughs ]

Eric: They’re my blessings. My children, grandchildren, my great-grandchildren. I’m so proud of them. But you… my beautiful, funny, smart… wonderful donna. You make my whole life… an adventure.

Donna: Eric…

Eric: And we’re not gonna get another year together. We’re not. But we made– we made the most of what we had, didn’t we?

Donna: We’re just gonna have to make every single minute that we have together count. Okay?

Eric: Such a wonderful adventure, you and me. Yeah?

Donna: Yeah.

Donna: It is about time your handsome face hung above the fireplace.

Eric: Wow.

[ Chuckles ] Look at that. So many memories. So wonderful memories that I can’t, uh– that’s what hurts so badly. That I don’t get to have any more with you. I want more. I love you, donna.

Donna: I love you so much, eric.

Eric: Come here. Come here. I love you. I love you so much.

Ridge: A party, huh? That’s the last thing you should be thinking about right now.

Brooke: I agree. But–

Ridge: No, I get– I get why he wants to– I get all that but his priorities are all wrong. He should be at the hospital right now, right? He almost collapsed. He should do what his doctor says and do those tests because who knows? Maybe we’ll get some good news, maybe… we’ll find he’ll stick around– he’ll stick around a little longer.

Donna: Eric? Eric?

Rj: Hey, what’s up?

Zende: You know, this used to be my office?

Rj: I thought everyone used it.

Zende: Everybody does, but it’s where I did most of my sketching.

Rj: Okay, well, I’ll work somewhere else. How’s that?

Zende: Your latest?

Rj: Yeah. What do you think?

Zende: Honest opinion, you got a lot to learn.

Rj: I never said I didn’t have a lot to learn, you know. I spent a lot of time with granddad.

Zende: Seriously? You’re gonna throw that in my face again?

Rj: I’ve never thrown that in your face, man.

Zende: Whatever, you got to admit, you haven’t really paid your dues around here.

Rj: What, like– like you have? Is that…

Zende: Remind me, what design school did you attend?

Rj: We really doing this? Come on, you know the answer to that one.

Zende: What’s a dolman sleeve?

Rj: Zende.

Zende: You ever hear of a knife pleat?

Rj: No, I haven’t heard of a knife pleat.

Zende: Both are designs from the 1920s to the 1950s. Way before our time. But the kind of thing they teach you in design school.

Rj: Cool, I’m starting to get your point. What do you want from me?

Zende: Look, rj, no disrespect, but you have to admit, they rolled out the red carpet for you here. And it’s all because you’re the golden child. Ridge and brooke’s son.

Brooke: What’s going on? Problems at international?

Ridge: No, it’s just rafael wanting to know about dad and the collection and possible launch date. If only he knew what was really going on.

Brooke: There would be an outpouring of love and concern.

Ridge: Yeah. But instead we’re here talking about a party, right? He should be at a hospital, taking some tests, but no. That’s what he wants to do. I should be with my dad making sure he’s all right. Instead he wants me to dress up in a monkey suit and pretend everything is fine.

Brooke: Okay. I– I know. It’s okay.

[ Knocking on door ]

Hope: What is it? Is it eri has something– has something happened?

Brooke: Oh, no, honey. Not the way that you mean. I mean, eric appears to be in stable condition.

Ridge: Yeah, so stable wants to have a party.

Donna: Eric? Can you hear me? Please, answer me, answer me.

[ Donna sobs, gasps ] No, no, no, no, no, no!

[ Donna gasps ]

[ Eric mumbles indistinctly ]

Donna: Eric! Teddy bear!

[ Donna gasps ] Sweetheart! Thank god! Oh, god. Oh, sweet, sweet.

[ Donna crying ]

Eric: What are you doing?

Donna: I– I’m calling 911, eric.

Eric: No, no, no. No.

Donna: Eric, you– you– you– you collapsed. My god. And this isn’t your first time. You– you– you– you almost fell at the office with rj.

Eric: I’m fine. I’m fine. I’m– I am fine.

Donna: But–

Eric: Don’T. Don’t worry.

Donna: Don’t worry? You– you were unconscious, I– I thought you– thought you–

Eric: You thought I was dead?

Donna: Yes. [ Sobs ]

Eric: Okay, okay. Not dead. Not dead. Not getting rid of me yet.

Donna: Don’t joke like that. I told you don’t joke.

Eric: I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I scared you. I’m sorry.

Donna: I wanna take care of you. I just– I– I– I wanna look out for you when I–

Eric: You take care of me, okay? But no hospital, no doctors. No. Please. Thank you. Now, the party. We need to do it right away. I don’t have much time.

Hope: So, this party was all eric’s idea?

Ridge: Yeah, he’s determined to make it happen.

Brooke: Eric wants his family around him and the house filled with love and laughter. A night to be remembered always.

Hope: Okay, but what about eric’s doctor? I mean, couldn’t something like this be too much for him?

Brooke: We were worried about that too. But eric feels that with his family around and everybody really enjoying themselves that maybe that’s the best medicine for him.

Ridge: You know, what else would be good medicine? Being honest with him. Tell him that we know and then tell him that we’re there for him. How about that?

Hope: I’m– I’m really sorry, ridge. I know this must be very difficult for you.

Ridge: Well, it’s difficult for all of us, right? We all love my dad. I gotta go see rj. Hey, um… thank you for your support. Means a lot.

Zende: It is beyond ludicrous that you, with zero design experience, would be grandpa’s first pick to work with him on couture.

Rj: I know. I get it. I get it. I just– well, you think that my– that my mom and my dad forced our granddad to give me a job?

Zende: I’m sure that they approached it with a little bit more finesse than that, but the end result is the same. You got to spend all this extra time with granddad, positioning yourself for better things.

Rj: You think I spent all of this time with granddad because I had an ulterior motive? Zende, if you knew why I was doing this…

Zende: Why? Why, what?

Rj: This is pointless. This is stupid. Listen, we’re– we’re family. You’re my cousin. Okay? We shouldn’t be fighting over this. This is– if you want the truth, I’m gonna give you the truth. I was shocked too. All right? I– I was shocked when he asked me to– to help him design.

Zende: I still say that ridge had something to do with this.

Rj: He had nothing to do with this. This– I– you have my word.

Zende: Your word?

Rj: Yes.

Zende: Right. Okay. Great.

Rj: Zende.

Zende: Great.

Rj: This was my granddad’s decision. Our granddad’s decision.

Zende: Rj, I’m sorry, I’m just not buying it. Just put yourself in my shoes for a second. Give me one good reason why granddad would choose to work with you instead of me?

Ridge: I can give you a reason. Rj knows something that you don’T. But maybe it’s time that you did.

Hope: I still can’t believe that eric wants to throw a party.

Brooke: I couldn’t believe it either at first. But even ridge acknowledged that it’s important to eric. What’s important to eric is important to us because we care about him so much. Despite how difficult this is going to be.

Hope: Yeah, but mom… you share two children with eric. And he has always been a champion of yours. So, while I– I acknowledge that this is an incredibly difficult time for eric, but it is for you too. Are you really sure you can do this? I mean, go to that party, pull off the charade of a lifetime in front of a man who means so much to you.

Brooke: Well, I… we all have to be strong… for eric. Think about it. This may be the last thing that he ever asks of us. So, we have to come through for him.

Donna: Can I get you anything or– or do anything?

Eric: No. Yeah, I’m fine.

Donna: I’ll– I’ll get you some water, okay?

Eric: Or maybe– maybe a martini, extra dry.

[ Donna sighs ]

Eric: Okay. Water will be fine.

[ Eric sighs ] Donna, I meant what I said about the party. We have to do it. I– I’m– I’m winding down.

Donna: Please, don’t say that.

Eric: We have to do the party. There’s not a lot of time. Okay?

Zende: So, I was right. There was something– something that would explain rj getting the coveted spot next to granddad.

Ridge: Can you stop doing that, please? Stop insinuating that he gets some special treatment.

Zende: But I’m not insinuating anything. I’ve been saying it outright from the start.

Ridge: Okay. Let’s clear it up. I should have told you this a long time ago but I was trying to respect my– my father’s wishes.

Zende: Wait. So, granddad was in on it?

Ridge: No. He’s not in on anything but it’s– it’s affecting him.

Zende: What is affecting him? What?

Ridge: Did you notice any changes in my dad in the past few months?

Zende: Not really. Uh, he seems as focused and driven as ever. His collection was killer. He won the– the– the fashion challenge.

[ Ridge sighs ]

Rj: He didn’T.

Zende: What are you talking about?

Rj: He didn’t win. Dad won and told granddad that he won. It’s not the truth.

Ridge: He’s right, I did.

Zende: Guys, what is going on here?

Ridge: There’s no easy way of saying this. But you have to know.

Zende: What? Know what?

Ridge: My dad is dying.

Hope: It still doesn’t seem real. I– I can’t imagine forrester creations without him and I don’t want to.

Brooke: I know. I mean, eric has been a– a giant in the fashion world for decades. His impact will live on long after he’s gone. And forrester creations will be successful… but it won’t be the same. I mean, how could it? He’s the founder, the heart and soul of this company is not going to be with us anymore.

Hope: Well, he’s led by example. His kindness, his generosity. Everyone adores him.

Brooke: He’s so sweet. I mean, he has been there for me, you know, stood by me when I didn’t even deserve it. No judgment whatsoever. It’s just gonna be heartbreaking and, you know, to think of this world without eric forrester in it.

Hope: Mom. Come here.

Brooke: Oh, honey. [ Sobs ]

Zende: No. No, you’re just saying that to justify rj getting to work with him.

Ridge: Yeah. That would be really nice. It’s true. My– my dad is dying.

Zende: From the moment I was adopted… he accepted me. He welcomed me with wide open arms. He, uh…

[ Sobbing ] He always encouraged me. He pushed me to be a better man, a better designer. I wanted to be like him. I wanted to be just like him. And now you’re telling me we’re gonna lose him? We’re gonna lose granddad? I want to see him. I have to see him. I gotta–

Ridge: You can’t do that.

Zende: What– what do you mean, I can’t see him? Why?

Ridge: He doesn’t want anyone to know. Donna, katie and luna know.

Zende: Luna?

Ridge: We gotta respect his wishes. Tell me that you understand that.

Zende: Of course. I won’t say anything to him. Uncle. [ Sobs ]

Ridge: I know.

Zende: But… I love him so much.

Ridge: I know that too. He loves you. Come here.

Donna: How are you feeling?

Eric: I’d feel a lot better if you’d bring me that martini.

[ Donna scoffs ]

Eric: [ Laughs ] Hey, I thought that would get a smile out of you. I just made a joke, you know. It’s okay to– it’s okay to laugh and joke a little bit. It’s okay. What’s not okay is for you to be crying and mourning like this. I’m not– I’m not 6 feet under yet, you know.

Donna: Don’t say things like that. Stop saying things like that. My god.

Eric: Okay. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I scared you. I’m sorry.

Donna: Listen to doctor, eric, and just go to the hospital, get those tests, get whatever test they need.

Eric: Stop it, donna. Stop it. I would do any kind of treatment, I would go to the doctor, I would go through anything if it meant I could spend some more time with to you. But I’m not gonna live my life like that. And under– under– under that kind of treatment. I’m not gonna do it. I won’T. Okay? Now… I’m gonna go on with my life. I’ve gotta live and laugh. And– and– and love. We’re gonna have a party.

Donna: I– I don’t want a party, eric. Can’t you see this is breaking my heart? I don’t want a party.

Eric: Okay.

Donna: Please stop.

Eric: Stop it. Stop it. Look at you. I wanna see a– I wanna see a smile on your face, please. Please, donna, look. Look at me. Can you smile? Because when I see this other face of yours, it– it makes me sad too. And it makes me realize.

Donna: What?

Eric: It makes me realize how much I’m gonna miss you. I’m gonna miss you so much.

[ Donna sobbing ] You come here. Come here.

Donna: Oh.

Eric: You’re okay.

Donna: Oh, no.

Eric: You’re okay.

[ Donna crying ]

Ridge: Okay. [ Sobbing ]

[ Relaxing music ]

Eric: Oh, donna, I have so much to do and so little time,

Donna: Eric, I– I really wish you wouldn’t think of it that way.

Eric: I have to. I– I can’t– I can’t waste a minute. I can’t, I mean, I– I don’t even really know how many minutes I have left. Oh, stop it you two. I don’t want this. I don’t want these– these long faces. I don’t want sadness in here, okay? I’ve had this wonderful life and it’s– it’s not over yet and I have to– I have this collection to put out and I have this wonderful party to throw. The kind of grand soiree that this family hasn’t seen in a very long time.

Thomas: You can’t be serious.

Brooke: Now?

Steffy: Granddad actually said he wants to throw a party.

Rj: He doesn’t want to. He’s doing it.

Carter: As you can imagine, I was taken aback by the documents eric sent over.

Ridge: What do– what documents? What are you–

Carter: Ridge, the revised will naming you executor and the amended medical power of attorney.

Ridge: But I can’t do this. How do I do this? How do– how do I make–

Carter: Okay, ridge. What the hell is going on?

Brooke: What is eric thinking?

Steffy: Throwing a party at a time like this?

Rj: Well, that’s the whole point.

Thomas: Okay. So, how did the topic of partying even come up?

Rj: Well, he was talking about his– his life and– and you know, it ending, but it wasn’t in like a morbid or depressing way. He was just talking about how he doesn’t want tears or sadness. He– he wants a celebration, the perfect joyous ending.

Katie: I know you probably don’t want my opinion, but I’m going to offer it up anyway. I think that under the circumstances, maybe a party is not such a great idea.

Eric: You know what? I agree with you. It’s not a good idea. It’s a great idea and I love it. It’s a great idea because it was my idea.

Donna: Eric, you’re not well.

Eric: Yeah, thanks for reminding me, donna.

Donna: No. What I mean is that you have enough on your plate doing this new collection.

Eric: If I don’t do what I want now, when? Now, I want to finish this collection and I want to do this one last wonderful party for our family. And remember, we’re a closed shop here. We’re the only ones who know about this. I don’t– rj and luna and us. No one else has to know what’s going on with me, right? Okay.

[ Eric coughing ]

Carter: Look, I’m not trying to jump to conclusions, but it’s not hard to connect the dots. So, what’s going on? You can tell me.

Ridge: He doesn’t want anyone to know. Not even me, his own son. But you’re family, so you deserve the truth.

Carter: No, no, no, man. That can’t be true.

Ridge: Yeah, I wish it wasn’T.

Carter: Eric… he’s dying? I can’t, I gotta go see him.

Ridge: No.

Carter: I have to.

Ridge: No, you don’t have to. It’s not what he wants. He doesn’t want anyone to know. That’s why you’re only finding out about this now. Rj’s been helping him and he had these tremors and his hands weren’t working, so rj was there for him and they created this collection together.

Carter: That’s a hell of a burden on rj.

Ridge: Nothing was too much for him because he talked to brooke and then they told me.

Carter: That’s why you let eric think he won the fashion challenge.

Ridge: He needed that. He needed some validation. He’s gotta know that he– that he’s relevant because he is relevant. As long as he’s alive, he’s– he’s relevant.

Carter: How are you holding up?

Ridge: What, pretending that I don’t know? I am great. That’s what he wants. We have to respect that.

Carter: I don’t think I can pull that off.

Ridge: Oh, I know you can pull that off. ‘Cause you have to. Not for me, carter. For him.

Eric: Katie. Uh, do me a favor, will you? Just, uh, get everybody in here in here, in this room. I want everybody in the family to know that there’s a wonderful party in their immediate future.

Katie: So, you’re really going through with this?

Eric: Oh, yes, with great enthusiasm. You too.

Donna: So, does that mean you’re ready to tell everybody the truth that you’re–

Eric: What? That I’m– that I’m dying? Donna, it’s okay. You can say it. It’s the truth. Okay.

Carter: Eric, he, um… he always accepted me, right from the start. Was always caring and kind, supportive… even when I didn’t deserve it. And as you know, he took a big chance on me because I didn’t have much corporate experience. But he believed I could do the job. I can’t tell you how much that means to me.

Ridge: No, I get it.

Carter: Thank you for telling me.

Ridge: Listen, I– I know you love my dad, he loves you. Hey, you gotta keep this to yourself.

Carter: I’m not saying it won’t be the hardest thing I ever had to do, but if it helps ease eric’s journey, you can count on me.

Ridge: Thank you, brother.

Carter: I’m sorry.

Ridge: Oh, man, me too.

Rj: Hey.

Ridge: Hey.

Rj: Carter.

Ridge: Ah, he’s family, I had to tell him.

Carter: Eric– he, uh– he sent over these– these documents. The revised will and amended the power of attorney.

Steffy: Granddad’s actively preparing for his death.

Ridge: Yeah.

Brooke: I still can’t believe this is happening.

Carter: There has to be something we can do for eric, right?

Thomas: Yeah, you can, uh, you can show up at his party.

Ridge: His party? What are you talking about?

Brooke: Uh, that’s right. Eric has decided this is the perfect time to have one last forrester bash. Having diabetes can raise a lot of questions. Like my morning ride, will it help lower my glucose?

Ridge: Dad’s serious?

Rj: He’s very serious. This is what he wants. He wants a gala event that he can attend that celebrates his life.

Steffy: Except we can’t know that that’s why we’ve been called together.

Ridge: Okay. So, we just kind of pretend. Right. That’s what we’re doing? How is this helpful for him at all? Meaningful in any way?

Brooke: Well, we have to plaster on these phony smiles and pretend that everything is okay.

Ridge: All right, great. So– so we’re just gonna have a party, have drinks and– and eat and pretend that everything is fine. How– how are we supposed to do that?

Steffy: I know. It’s ridiculous. What– what rj said. It’s what granddad wants.

Thomas: I think it’s actually inspirational.

Ridge: What?

Thomas: We’d all be so lucky to go out like that.

Carter: He has a point, ridge. And you do too. We all love eric and we’re losing him and… it’s natural we’d want to hold on to him for as long as we can, but you did something very admirable. You told your dad he won the fashion challenge when he didn’T.

Thomas: Yeah, you gave that to him.

Steffy: Probably gave him more time, dad.

Brooke: It was a gift and now we can give him another gift, show up to his party and give him the night that he wants so badly.

[ Phone chiming ] Oh. It’s, uh, it’s katie. Eric wants to see us.

Ridge: All right. Put on your game faces. Pretend that everything is perfect.

Donna: I understand your desire to live life as much as you can, but you heard the doctor, eric. He wants you in the hospital.

Katie: To run more tests.

Eric: No, no, it’s not what I want. This is what I want. I want one last party. A wonderful party full of fun and laughter and wonderful memories.

Donna: Oh, eric.

[ Knocking ]

Eric: Good.

Ridge: Hey.

Eric: Good. Come in, everyone. Just– just fill up the room. Yeah, that’s what I want. Uh, I’m so glad– I’m glad you’re here. Thanks for coming.

Brooke: Yeah, katie texted me, said you wanted to see all of us, so…

Eric: And what a wonderful sight you are to see.

Ridge: You like being behind the desk, don’t you? Showing us who’s boss.

Eric: Don’t sell yourself short. You did a wonderful collection. It was, uh, it was pretty impressive, I gotta say.

Ridge: Not impressive enough, was it?

Thomas: We are all humbled by you, granddad.

Steffy: And inspired.

Eric: Thanks. But, uhm well, the fact is I was pretty proud of it too. I needed this collection to be good so that I could prove to myself that I deserve to be here, the head of this company behind this desk.

About the young generation full of energy and, and wonderful ideas to take this company from now into the future for decades to come. I couldn’t be more proud.

Steffy: You have no idea how much that means to us.

Thomas: I completely agree with you. I mean, being an artist or– or running a business, I mean, we learned that from you and dad, obviously.

Ridge: Everything I gave you, I got from this guy.

Brooke: And you’ve been so generous to our logan family as well. Our lives would not be the same without you here.

Donna: Certainly not mine.

Carter: Or mine.

Rj: You touched a lot of people, granddad.

Katie: In deeply profound ways.

Steffy: We love you so much.

Eric: We, uh, we don’t take time to say that to each other very often. We get all busy during our lives and we forget to tell each other how much we care about each other and so, that’s what I’m doing now and not very well either.

Carter: You know, I’d like to, um, to jump on that, eric. Uh… you took a chance on me, gave me a place here at forrester, a seat at the family table and, uh, I just wanna thank you for that.

Eric: No, we needed you here. You’ve been a wonderful addition to this company and to this family.

Ridge: All right. What is happening here? We’re all busy. You brought us in here for, what, some love fest? Okay?

Eric: Yeah. Thank you. Thank you. Uh, the fact is an explanation, I’ve had a few moments of, uh, real clarity lately and I think it’s time for us to have a celebration, a party. A party for all of us full of– full of love and laughter. So, are you coming or not?

[ All laughing ]

Ridge: Yeah, sounds perfect.

Thomas: We’ll be there.

Rj: Sounds like a blast.

Carter: Wouldn’t miss it.

Eric: Okay. Donna and I will get back to you with all the details and we’ll let you know when– when everything is starting.

Donna: Okay, I think you’ve had a full day.

Eric: We’ll dance. We’re gonna dance?

Donna: Yes, we’ll dance. But we’re gonna go home now. Okay. All right.

Eric: Be lots of champagne.

Ridge: Yes. Okay.

Eric: Lots of it.

Ridge: Sounds great.

Eric: Don’t be late.

Rj: I will not. I’ll see you.

Ridge: So, we’re having a party.

Thomas: Okay. Uh, I guess it’s time to figure out how to throw a party.

Katie: Donna and I tried to talk him out of it, but he was determined.

Carter: How are we supposed to pull this off?

Brooke: Brought tears to my eyes just hearing him talk like that.

Ridge: You know what I want to hear from him is the truth, so we can deal with this as a family.

Rj: This is how he wants to handle it, dad.

Steffy: I wouldn’t go along with a stupid charade for anyone. But if this is what granddad wants, then we’re going to dress up and we’re gonna have a party and we’re gonna make it a night he will never forget.

Ridge: Okay.

Eric: Did you, uh, you think anybody saw my hand shaking?

Donna: Nobody reacted.

Eric: Ah, good. I mean rj or katie, it’s okay, but nobody else. I don’t want–

Donna: I know, I know. How’s your hand feeling now?

Eric: Fine. It’s fine. Ridge asked me, uh, what we’re celebrating at this party and I said, “gratitude.” I’m just so… I’m so grateful to have you in my life, yeah?

Donna: Oh, eric. Really, uh… we finally got together, didn’t we? It became kind of a circuitous route, but we’re here.

Donna: We did. And stephanie, I was with her all that time. She was wonderful. She was strong and powerful and a wonderful partner and a great– a great mother to our children, really, but she… she wasn’t that easy to live with.

Donna: I can’t imagine that she was, really.

Eric: She was. And brooke. Being married to brooke. We– we had two beautiful children together and i just never really felt that… that the marriage was a permanent thing. I felt like I was on borrowed time. That her– her love for ridge would– would win out.

Donna: It always does, doesn’t it?

Eric: It does eventually, yeah. And there were other women. You were one of them, but our timing wasn’t right then. But now, now it is. I’m so happy. I have you– you– your love and your grace and– and your warmth and your laughter fill this house.

Donna: I’m the lucky one. You– you finally came back to me.

Eric: I did, didn’t I? Here– here I am. I’m so lucky to have you and I’m so grateful. And I– I– I– I– I– um… I don’t take you for granted. I don’T… I feel so… I feel safe. I feel safe with you in these last days of my– and I’M… I’m scared, donna.

Donna: What?

Eric: I’m scared.

Donna: Eric.

Eric: I’m scared, donna.

Donna: Stop. No. Don’T.

[ Eric mumbling ]

Donna: Eric, please. Don’t– are you okay?

Eric: Sit down.

Donna: Are you okay?

Eric: I want to sit down.

Donna: Okay, sit down.

Eric: I want to sit down. I’m okay, I’m okay.

Donna: Are you okay?

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: Are you okay?

Eric: Yeah, I’m okay.

Donna: Uh, I’m going to get you some water.

Eric: All right. I’m sorry. I’m scared, donna.

[ Metal clattering ]

Donna: Eric! Oh!

[ Relaxing music ]

Donna: Please, eric, you heard the doctor.

Eric: Yeah, yeah. I did. I… I heard his advice, yeah.

Donna: But you’re gonna choose to ignore it.

Eric: I’m gonna choose to ignore it.

[ Donna sighing ] Donna, I’m gonna live my life the way I want to, right here at forrester, creating and– and– and designing. And at home, in our beautiful home with you. Side by side with you, snuggled up in my arms. I’m not gonna be hooked up to a bunch of old machines and– and being poked and prodded. Not– no hospital. No hospital.

Donna: But what if the hospital could help?

Katie: Hospital? What? What are you talking about? What happened?

Eric: Well, katie, in case you’ve forgotten, I’m dying.

Ridge: My dad is facing the biggest challenge of his life, and I can’t be there to help him.

Brooke: Not in the way that you want. But you are there for your father, ridge. You are. You’re giving him exactly what he wants and needs right now.

Ridge: What does he want and need? Me pretending that this isn’t real? That– that it’s–

Brooke: Okay, look. I understand your frustration.

Steffy: We all do. We all do. It goes against every instinct to go along with this, pretending that everything is okay when all we want to do is just reach out and hold him and help him somehow. I’ll always remember it as grandma being, you know, the stubborn one, but… granddad, he can be stubborn too. We don’t really have a choice but to let him play this out the way he wants. Live his life on his terms. ‘Til the end.

Brooke: Steffy is right. We have to give this to eric. We have to keep pretending we don’t know.

Ridge: Okay. But rj said that– that dad almost collapsed today. If any of us had seen that, then what do we do?

Steffy: It would have been impossible to ignore.

Ridge: Exactly.

Rj: Yeah. I– I’m glad I was there to catch him though. That was good.

Ridge: We’re all glad. Not just today, but this whole time you were there, you were a steady hand, literally. We have to give this to eric. We have to keep pretending we don’t know.

Ridge: Okay. But rj said that– that dad almost collapsed today. If any of us had seen that, then what do we do?

Steffy: It would have been impossible to ignore.

Ridge: Exactly.

Rj: Yeah. I– I’m glad I was there to catch him though. That was good.

Ridge: We’re all glad. Not just today, but this whole time you were there, you were a steady hand, literally. You helped him get his designs on paper one last time.

Katie: Eric, of course, I haven’t forgotten. I was just worried hearing you talk about the hospital.

Eric: Uh-huh. Nothing’s really changed. Nothing. I’m still dying. Like everybody else on the planet, and, you know, just a little sooner for me, that’s all. But just because I’m on a– on a fast track for– for– for dying doesn’t mean I need to throw in the towel and then crawl into some hospital bed someplace. No. No, I’m gonna spend it doing what I love doing most. Right here, creating.

Donna: I– I get that. I mean, we– we actually– we get that, but– but what if spending just a little bit of time in the hospital will prolong your life so that you can continue to create for many more years?

Eric: No, no, no. Being in a hospital is just– that’s just– it’s just sitting there and fading away and being forgotten. I’m not gonna do that. I have this collection to finish. I have to finish this collection and that’s what I’m gonna do. I may be gone one day soon and away from this office and I’ll be away from everywhere, but I’m gonna create this and– and it’s a line that’s gonna go on forever, never to be forgotten. You know, give this place back to ridge one day and– and then it’ll be done. That’s what I’m gonna do.

She found it.

The feeling of finding

the psoriasis treatment

she’s been looking for.


is the first-of-its-kind,

once-daily pill

for moderate-to-severe

plaque psoriasis…

for the chance at clear

or almost clear skin.

It’s like the feeling of

finding that outfit psoriasis

tried to hide from you.

Or finding your swimsuit

is ready for primetime. Dad!

Once-daily sotyktu is proven

to get more people

than the leading pill.

Don’t take if you’re allergic

to sotyktu;

serious reactions can occur.

Sotyktu can lower your ability

to fight infections

muscle problems,

and changes in certain labs

Tell your doctor if you have fallible, but my makeup is.

New infallible matte

resistance liquid lipstick

by l’oreal paris.

Transfer resistant

lightweight feel

up to 16 hours long-lasting it makes me feel infallible. You’re worth it.

Ridge: You’re gonna be here, right? You’re gonna help him. You’re gonna put every design on paper, every last one of them.

Rj: Every single last one of them. And I’m gonna do everything that it takes to do that, dad.

Ridge: Okay.

Rj: Even if, you know, there may come a time when it’s too much for him.

Ridge: When it’s too much for him?

Rj: Yeah.

Ridge: Have you met my dad? Too much for him? He’s gonna do this until the end.

Brooke: I’m so happy that rj can be there for eric. But what about the rest of us? I mean, what can we do to support him? How can we be there for him without letting on that we’re aware of the situation?

Steffy: I’ve been wrestling with this myself. We can’t possibly keep–

Ridge: Can’t possibly what? Keep up the charade of– of saying that everything is fine? This– we could have quality time with him. Instead, we’re doing this. We– we’re here talking about it, wasting it.

Steffy: We’re gonna have quality time, but I don’t want to pity him. That’s the last thing he needs. I just wish we could have an open, honest conversation with him, as honest as it can be. So, if he’s here at the office, behind the desk, knocking it out, another brilliant design, then fine. That’s just as meaningful. That’s what granddad wants. That’s gonna bring him joy, then you said it yourself, we need to respect his wishes.

Ridge: Come here. We will. Okay?

Donna: You know that I want you thriving and creating, but this isn’t about sending you to some hospital room to spend the rest of your days. This is about going to the hospital, doing a few tests and maybe this won’t be your last collection.

Katie: Exactly. Exactly. Eric, you can’t stop fighting. You can’t give up.

Eric: That’s not what I’m doing. I’m not. That’s not– giving up would be curling up in a ball in a– in a– in a hospital room somewhere. Between the sheets of some bed, someplace. I’m not doing that. It’s not what I’m doing. I have to stay here. I have to stay alive and I have to finish my last collection. This is my life, this is my passion.

Katie: No one is saying that you have to quit designing. Everyone can see how wonderful this has been for you. But– but you can do both. You can continue to design and look for treatment options.

Eric: What? From a hospital bed? No. Work from a hospital bed? Some people can do that. Not me. Not me.

Katie: Eric, please. Listen to your doctors. Listen to donna. Treatment could give you and look for treatment options.

Eric: What? From a hospital bed? No. Work from a hospital bed? Some people can do that. Not me. Not me.

Katie: Eric, please. Listen to your doctors. Listen to donna. Treatment could give you more time with her. Isn’t that a reason enough?

Eric: That’s it. It’s reason enough. I– I– I love your sister. Katie, I love donna. What she gives to me– she gives everything to me. I’m so– I’m so grateful for that.

Donna: You could have so much more though, eric. Years to come.

Eric: So, let’s hang on to that, all right? Let’s– let’s live those moments that we have. Let’s– let’s thrive on that. Grab those moments and live those– live those moments. Please. Look, I– I appreciate so much how the two of you who have supported me through this, both of you. It humbles me, it does, but I’m the only one who knows how I’m feeling and I’m the one who gets to decide what I’m gonna do. And I choose– I choose to move on with my life, to design. This is– this is what I wanna do. You have to trust my instincts.

Katie: What if your instincts are leading you away from– from possible lifesaving treatment?

Eric: No, my instincts are not wrong. My instincts tell me to finish this. To finish this collection. I have one wonderful collection left in me and this is it. And that’s what I’m gonna do. I need you to both– I need you both believe in me. Please.

Katie: Yeah.

Eric. Please.

Katie: Of course.

Donna: We do.

Eric: Okay.

Donna: Yes, we do.

Eric: Okay. Good. Now, I need your help.

Donna: My help?

Eric: Yes, I need your help too.

Donna: Okay.

Eric: Here’s what we’re gonna do. I want you to model this dress for me. This– the one in the middle, the purple. I want you to put that on, I want you to bring it to life for me, all right? And I want you to call rj and tell him to meet us in the salon. He can see my latest– the latest forrester fashion creation come to life.

Rj: I just got a text from aunt katie, and she says, um, granddad wants to meet up.

Brooke: Oh, well, that’s great. Must mean he’s inspired to work.

Ridge: Probably thinking about his next fashion show.

Steffy: The next fashion show won’t be a competition.

Ridge: Right.

Steffy: It’ll be eric forrester’s originals in the spotlight. But what if he doesn’T…

Rj: No. He’s going to finish. He’s working day and night. He’s gonna make it.

Ridge: All right, then go. Meet him and help him finish his couture line. Go ahead.

Brooke: Yeah. Keep us updated. We need to know how he is.

Rj: Okay. I– I got to admit, I– I feel… terrible. I feel like I just betrayed his trust.

Steffy: No, no, no. You did the right thing. Not just for granddad, but for our whole family. Thank you.

Ridge: Yes, thank you. Now go. Finish your collection.

Brooke: I’m really proud of him. Everything he’s doing for your father.

Ridge: I know. That’s our son. Seeing my dad through this. It feels right.

Brooke: Yeah.

Ridge: We did good.

Eric: I actually love this space, you know. I’m surprised we don’t use it more often.

Katie: Oh, I’ve used it for a couple of events, press conferences, it’s nice. It’s more intimate, cozy.

Eric: Yeah. It’s nice.

Katie: Yeah.

Eric: I mean the– I suppose it could have to do with the fact that I beat the pants off of ridge at the fashion challenge.

Katie: That might be why you like it, yes.

Eric: Maybe so.

[ Eric chuckling ]

Rj: Hello? Hey, aunt katie, granddad. Do you– you wanted to see me for something?

Eric: Rj, we have a surprise for you. Stay right there.

Rj: That’s– okay.

Eric: Donna, we’re ready. Beautiful. The dress is very nice too. Very nice.

Donna: It’s gorgeous.

[ Eric coughing ]

Eric: I’m sorry.

Rj: Are you okay? Do you wanna take a break maybe?

Eric: A break? Absolutely not. I’ve got a big break coming. Yeah, an everlasting one. I’ll rest then. But not ’til then. Absolutely not. Do you hear me? Not ’til then. Hey.

Steffy: Just tell me granddad will live long enough to see this collection on the runway.

Ridge: I would love that. But I can’t promise.

Steffy: I just wanna see him up there. He takes in the showstopper and he takes in the applause. Yeah, he should have a thousand more shows.

[ Ridge chuckling ]

Ridge: Let’s start with one, okay?

Steffy: I just wish he knew that we knew. We could tell him that we love him and that we’re there for him.

Brooke: Yeah. We all feel that way.

[ Brooke sighing ] But you made a good point earlier. We can’t pity eric. These are his final moments, not ours. We need to let eric do this his way. I’m just guessing that at some point, it’s going to be difficult to keep on pretending that we don’t know.

Ridge: Well, I’m sure the day will come when his condition deteriorates to point where… here’s what I know. This man is gonna stand tall as long as he can.

Brooke: Takes an enormous amount of strength.

Ridge: I know I couldn’t do it.

Steffy: Well, you’ve been extremely brave. Showing so much strength, holding us together.

Ridge: I think it’s gonna take all of us.

Brooke: Yeah.

[ Eric coughing ]

Donna: Okay, I think– I think we need to get some water.

Katie: I’m gonna– I’m gonna see what I can find.

Eric: Stop it! Stop it! I don’t want this. I don’t want any of this. I’m tired of it. I don’t want these long faces. I don’t want any sadness, all right? No sadness. I want– I want laughter and I want joy. And I want– I just got the best– I just got the best idea.

Katie: About a fashion show?

Eric: No, no, the funeral.

Donna: What? Er– eric.

Eric: No, I’m sorry. You got me wrong. I don’t mean funeral. I mean– I mean, uh– I mean, a celebration. Something that– that I can attend. The most wonderful celebration ever. A party!

Donna: A party?

Eric: Yes, a party with– with– with everyone. With all my friends and family and I can be there with a– with a glass of champagne, and everyone can laugh and have a wonderful time. And there’d be no tears. There’d be no crying and no tears at this party. Do you understand?

Donna: Eric, is that really fair? I mean, shouldn’t family and friends get a chance to say goodbye to you?

Eric: Yes, yes, and they can at my real funeral when that happens, whenever that is. And they can be there and cry as much as they want, but they shouldn’t spend a lot of time doing that because life goes on, and it should. This is what I want to do. And I would be very honored if you would do it with me, this final celebratory act of mine. The most– the most fun act I’ve ever had. A beautiful, beautiful celebration, and one final, final act. Yes?

[ Katie gasping ]

[ Eric laughing ]

Eric: Yeah, yeah.

Brooke: You’re a good son.

Ridge: A good son that can’t help his father.

Steffy: You talking about granddad?

Brooke: Talking about how difficult it is.

Steffy: Oh, I wish he’d let us be there for him.

Ridge: Well, it’s his choice. Doesn’t want anyone to pity him.

Brooke: He doesn’t want us to worry.

Steffy: So, we’re supposed to just act like everything’s normal?

Ridge it’s not normal. I saw his hand shaking earlier. Pretended like I didn’t see it.

Steffy: God. Well, at least he’s back at work. Now, we can see him.

Ridge: Yeah, I’m happy about that.

Steffy: I’m still not used to seeing you in the design office.

Ridge: Not my desk anymore. That’s part of the deal.

Steffy: You did the right thing, letting granddad believe that he won the fashion challenge and giving up your office.

Eric: So, any time that you slant the hemline on something like this, it needs to be very, very subtle.

Rj: Yeah.

Eric: It makes all the difference in the world.

Rj: No, it– it definitely does. I definitely wouldn’t have, uh, I wouldn’t have thought of doing it. I really like the way that it makes the edges straight.

Eric: Yeah, it does. It gives the fabric some weight. It– it grounds the dress. It’s really good.

Donna: Mm, signature eric forrester.

Eric: Yes, it is, yeah. She knows all my secret weapons.

[ Rj and donna chuckling ] And now, you do too.

Rj: I’ve learned so much from you, granddad.

Eric: And me from you. I mean, this is just a very adventurous neckline.

Rj: Oh, come on. The– the neckline needs work. Honestly. That’s what it needs.

Eric: No, it doesn’T. It’s perfect. Well, we can work on it a little bit more if you want, but it’s gonna come out just fine. Don’t worry.

Donna: Between the two of you, I have no doubt it will turn out beautifully.

[ Eric chuckling ]

Eric: What I’d like to do is to get a little more adventurous with the, uh, with the color. Maybe, um, a red, uh, a fire– fire engine red. Um…

Rj: Hey, are you okay?

Eric: Yeah, I– I think so. Uh… be good.

Donna: Eric, you’re pale. You need to sit down.

Rj: Hey, hey, hold on, hold on.

Brooke: It’s really selfless of you, allowing eric to believe that he beat you in the fashion challenge.

Ridge: He was so invested. He spent hours finishing those pieces.

Steffy: So did you, which makes it even more heartwarming.

Ridge: Well, that’s the least I could do.

Brooke: Thinking that he won this challenge, it’s– it’s meant a lot to eric.

Ridge: Yeah, I know. He’s thrilled. Now, he’s rubbing it in my face.

Steffy: He couldn’t be more proud of himself.

Ridge: Why shouldn’t he? It’s quite a collection.

Brooke: And it’s really made him happy.

Ridge: I– there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for this guy. Nothing. After everything he’s done for me all my life, and now, I’m just… sitting there talking to doctors and specialists, and… all I hear is “nothing more we can do.”

Rj: Whoa, whoa, whoa. I got you. I got you.

Donna: Let’s get you… sit down. Sit down.

Eric: Okay. I’m okay.

Rj: Let’s just get to the chairs.

Eric: Yeah, I’m all right. I just had a senior moment.

Donna: Okay. Just sit down, eric. Come on. You almost passed out.

Eric: I’m fine.

Donna: Please.

Eric: Fine.

Donna: Take a sip.

Eric: Thank you. Thanks. Who are you calling?

Donna: Your doctor. He gave me his cell phone.

Eric: No, don’t do that, donna. Don’t call the doctor.

Donna: Okay, stop. You’re not talking me out of this.

Rj: No. Let’s just hold on a second, hold on a second. Do you want some more water? Can I get you some more water?

Eric: No, I’m okay. I’m all right. Don’t worry about me, all right? I’m feeling better already. Look.

Rj: No, you haven’t been feeling well for a long time, granddad.

Donna: This is donna logan.

Rj: Maybe…

Donna: I need to speak with dr. Colby regarding–

Rj: You need to rest and maybe working on this collection isn’t good for you.

Donna: It’s urgent.

Ridge: Dad and I would always work together whenever we could, you know. And then, he started wanting to do his own line. I just didn’t pick up on it.

Brooke: I just thought he needed to prove himself like he’s still got it.

Ridge: Yeah. I thought the same thing, so I indulged him. You know why? Because I wanted to win. Because I wanted to beat the best.

Steffy: And you did.

Ridge: Yeah. What a waste of time, huh? This whole competition was just time wasted with him. I was such a jerk.

Steffy: You and granddad always had fun teasing each other, and it always came from a place of love.

Ridge: You think this came from a place of love? No. I wanted him out. I wanted him to retire so I could take over ’cause I didn’t know he was suffering ’cause no one told me.

Brooke: You understand why.

Ridge: I do. I– this is not about rj, and I know he has a lot on his plate. I understand.

Steffy: Yeah, definitely. And thomas and I are really grateful that you opened up to us. I mean, yeah, it’s still a shock. Grandad seems so vital and alive.

Ridge: He is, he– everything we have, everything we are is because of him.

Brooke: It’s true. Everything he’s done for all of us. His love and his support and his encouragement. And everything he’s done here, what he’s built at forrester creations.

Ridge: A patriarch.

Steffy: He’s always been a sanctuary for me. When I couldn’t talk to you or mom about something, I– I knew I could go to him. And he’d give me just wonderful advice and guidance and not just for me, but for everyone. I don’t want to even think about him not being here. I can’t imagine him being gone.

Donna: Okay. Well, um, dr. Colby is gonna swing by and check on you, and, um, thankfully he was really close.

Eric: Look, it was just a dizzy spell, that’s all it was. You didn’t have to call the doctor.

Rj: No, we need to get you checked out. That’s– it’s a good idea.

Eric: Yeah. Well, it’s just gonna be the same diagnosis as it was before, right? And this– this– this senior moment of mine was just a blip on that same diagnostic radar. It’s the same thing.

Rj: Granddad. Granddad. We love you. Okay? We both love you. We wanna make sure that you’re not in any danger. Okay? We– we’re– this collection? We– we’re gonna have time to finish this. Okay? And we’re going to.

Eric: Good. I like that attitude, all right?

Rj: Yeah.

Eric: Let’s do some work. We can get some work done before the doctor gets here. Come on.

Rj: No, no.

Donna: Oh, no, no, no, no. You– you need to rest right now, eric.

[ Eric coughing ]

Donna: Oh…

Rj: What if we took you back to the house? Would you be okay with that? What if– what if we started working on–

Eric: Oh, no, that’s the worst idea and you’ll put me between– convince me to lay down on the bed and just sit there and wait to die. No, no, I’m not gonna do that. That’s not what I’m gonna do.

Donna: That– that– that’s not what we’re saying, eric. Okay? We’re not saying that. We just think that maybe this is depleting your energy.

Eric: No, this– this is what energizes me, donna. You know that. Being here at this desk. Designing, working, surrounded by my family and– and teaching my grandson. And– and– and loving you. This. And this is what I’m gonna do until I die, this. This is what I want.

[ Eric coughing ]

Donna: Oh, dr. Colby. Thank you so much for coming.

Colby: Eric, how are you doing? I see the coughing’s intensified.

Eric: I’m fine. I’m fine.

Donna: No, he– he’s not fine. He almost passed out and he’s– he’s coughing up blood again. I mean, I know eric doesn’t want to hear this, but his– his condition is getting worse. His symptoms are increasing, and– and they’re more frequent. Please, doctor, please. Tell me that there’s– there’s something you can do to help eric.

[ Eric coughing ]

Colby: One more deep breath in.

[ Eric inhaling deeply ] Tell me more about what happened today.

Donna: Uh, eric– eric was just standing there. He– he– he and rj were working and suddenly he just got disoriented.

Eric: It wasn’t a big deal. I just got lightheaded, that’s all.

Rj: It was a very big deal, dr. Colby. He was standing right here and he almost fell.

Donna: Yeah. And thankfully, rj was there to catch him or he would have hit the ground.

Colby: Has this been happening regularly?

Eric: No. What, the dizziness?

Colby: Yes.

Eric: No, no, it hasn’T. It’s just– just once in a while. Not– not very often at all. Look, I– just probably low blood sugar. I didn’t, uh, eat hardly anything today.

Colby: Okay. With your condition, nearly losing consciousness is an indication of a more serious issue.

Donna: He– he’s been so focused on this collection. I don’t– I don’t think he’s been taking care of himself as much as he should be. Eric, you need to eat and— and you’re not getting enough sleep.

Rj: Yeah. We keep telling him that he needs to get more sleep.

Eric: All right, you’re both right. You’re both right. I’ll, uh, I’ll have a great big lunch tomorrow.

Colby: Okay. To be perfectly frank, I think you need to go to the hospital.

Eric: Yeah. What today?

Colby: Yes.

Eric: No, I can’t go. It’s right in the middle of the workday. I’m not gonna go to the hospital.

Colby: Eric, your blood pressure is low. Okay? Your lungs are inflamed. The hospital can do a chest x-ray, run more tests so that we know better about what stage we’re at.

Eric: A test to what? A test to tell me what I already know? That my body’s failing me? We know that already, doctor. No, thank you.

Rj: Granddad, you need to listen to dr. Colby. He’s an expert.

Eric: I know.

Donna: Maybe– maybe if you go to the hospital, they’ll– they’ll make you feel more comfortable.

Eric: Oh, they have pills for that. They’re gonna have pills that make me feel better. They have lots of pills for that. You have a– a pill to make me better so that I can– I can live? So I can keep living? Do you have that pill? No, I didn’t think so. Look, I don’t want to go to the hospital. I’m gonna stay here. I’m gonna do what I want. I’m gonna live my life. I’m gonna squeeze the life out of every moment I have left. And I’m gonna live it for myself, right? I’m gonna live ’til I die.

Steffy: Granddad is at the end of his life and we have to pretend that we have no idea.

Brooke: Right. Nobody is supposed to know.

Ridge: But we do know.

Brooke: Yes, we do know. And it’s taken a terrible toll on rj too. I’m worried about that. Just happy he’s been able to lean on luna.

Steffy: Yeah, it has helped out granddad.

Ridge: Why can’t we just go over there and shake him and say, “hey, dad, we know what’s going on. “We’re here to help you.”

Steffy: I hear you, and I want to do that too.

Brooke: We can’T. We can’t say anything. It’s critical that we don’t upset him.

Steffy: [ Sighing ] Fine. I mean, if he’s here and he’s creating and it gives him peace, maybe it’ll prolong his life.

Ridge: Give him something to hold on to.

Brooke: He does love designing, that’s for sure. Just hope he doesn’t overdo it.

[ Steffy sighing ]

Ridge: Come here.

Brooke: You know how we’re talking about eric this way. You know, our eric. Our sweet, sweet eric.

Ridge: It’s all right.

Rj: Hey, you’re– you’re here. Um…

Ridge: Whoa, whoa. Is it my dad? What’s going on?

Rj: Yes, the doctor was just with him in the ceo office.

Brooke: Did something happen?

Rj: He’s okay. It’s just– I think things have taken a little bit of a turn.

Steffy: What do you– what do you mean?

Rj: He– he has these dizzy spells sometimes, but this– this was different. I think– I think his condition is getting uh, getting worse.

Eric: That was some house call, you know. The house is one thing, but for him to come to the office. Come on.

Donna: Okay. And he urged you to go to the hospital. I really think you should listen to him.

Eric: Well, if I thought it was important, I would.

Donna: Eric, sweetheart. What if it was another tia?

Eric: Well, it’s nothing we haven’t dealt with before. Right, donna? And now that I’ve had these crackers, I’m back to my old self. I mean, really. Let’s– let’s go home. We can play some racquetball or some pickleball.

Donna: Stop. I’m really not in the mood to joke right now.

Eric: I’m not joking. I’m serious about it. We can play something. I’ve got plenty of juice.

Donna: It was really scary. Stop it. That was scary for me, please. I mean, you–

Eric: I’m sorry. I’m sorry.

Donna: You almost collapsed. You were– you were just standing there talking, and if rj hadn’t– hadn’t held you, you could have hit your head. Or maybe never woken up.

Eric: Or maybe died, you think? I would’ve died? Donna, it’s not my time. It’s not my time. Not yet. You’re not gonna get rid of me that easily.

Donna: Stop.

Eric: There you are. Beautiful smile. I love it when you laugh.

Eric: Okay, okay. Okay.

Donna: I’m sorry.

Eric: Whatever happens, you’re gonna be fine.

Ridge: What’s going on with dad?

Rj: I don’t know. It came on suddenly, whatever it was.

Steffy: You said he got dizzy.

Rj: Yes, he did. We were talking, he was really excited about the new design. Everything was really positive and then he– he couldn’t find a word, and then he just– his whole body went weak.

Brooke: Oh, my god.

Rj: I was scared he was gonna collapse.

Brooke: Did you call 911?

Rj: We called– donna wanted to call his doctor, so we called his doctor, and he came and examined him in the office.

Steffy: What did the doctor say?

Rj: He’s– he’s very worried about him. He’s been worried about him. He said that he shouldn’t be here working. He– he should be in a hospital.

Ridge: All right. So, is– is that where he is? Is that where he went?

Rj: Well, you know how stubborn granddad is.

Steffy: He refused to go.

Rj: Yeah. He said it was low blood sugar and he said it was no big deal.

Ridge: Oh, okay. Great.

Brooke: It’s more than that.

Rj: Yeah. It’s obvious his– his illness is progressing, and we– we– shouldn’t we do something?

Steffy: Well, granddad can’t be alone. Someone needs to be there with him.

Rj: He’s almost never alone. It’s always donna or me or katie are always with him. We have that covered.

Ridge: Why are we doing this? Why can’t we– we be open and honest with each other? We’re standing here, he’s over there. I just want to be with him and hold his hand and make sure that he’s all right. Share whatever pain he has, whatever– he must be so scared right now.

Brooke: Ridge.

Steffy: Hey, you are there for him, loving him every single day. You’re here, dad. It’s okay. It’s okay.

[ Ridge sighing ]

Donna: Do you know how much I love you, honey bear?

Eric: I do.

Donna: Yeah.

Eric: I also know how hard this has been for you. Thank you. You’ve been so strong for me. Until my last breath… thank you.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Hope: Hi, dad.

Deacon: Hey, sweetheart. Thanks for coming. Uh, can I get you anything?

Hope: No, I’m good. Uh, actually, I should be at work, so what’s this all about?

Deacon: Well, before we get into that, I– I just want you to know that I’m sorry, we didn’t see each other for thanksgiving. I missed you.

Hope: Oh, you understand why I kept my distance, right? Is she here today? Is she working? Is sheila here?

Deacon: No, uh, not at the moment.

Hope: Okay, good because i don’t want to be around her, but sadly, that also means that I don’t get to be around my dad.

Brooke: Ah, it was really a wonderful day.

Ridge: Forrester thanksgivings. They always are.

Rj: Yeah, family, friends, food galore.

Brooke: It’s just hard to really enjoy it… knowing what we know.

Ridge: I always thought my dad would be there. You know, every party, every special occasion. Now, he’s slipping away more and more every day. And we have to pretend that everything’s fine.

Eric: So, ladies, tell me, uh, tell me what you see?

Katie: I see eric forrester sitting behind his desk, reveling in his triumphant glory.

[ All chuckling ]

Eric: Thank you. And, um, anything else?

Donna: I see a man who won the fashion challenge, reclaimed his office and control of his company. Who’s at the top of his game and the top of the fashion world again.

Eric: Imagine how that makes me feel.

Katie: We love seeing you like this.

Donna: Just like we love seeing you at the head of the table on thanksgiving.

Katie: Forrester family patriarch whom we all love and cherish.

Eric: Thank you. Yeah, one might think that I don’t have that much to be thankful for this particular– particular thanksgiving, but, um, they’d be wrong because I get to get up every morning and– and– and create beauty for the whole world to see. And– and I can get– I can be celebrated for it and– and be given credit for it. I mean, what could be better than that?

Deacon: Let’s not dwell on sheila because that’s not why I asked you here. I’m hearing that you’re still seeing thomas. Is it true?

Hope: Why do you ask?

Deacon: Because I’m a protective father. And because I don’t think the guy’s right for you.

Hope: Are you being serious right now?

Deacon: Very. Yeah, I am. I mean, you know, given the guy’s history, the hurt that he’s put you through.

Hope: Wow. Wow. I’m really getting dating advice from a man dating a psycho like sheila.

Eric: I want to, uh, I– I want to pull out all the stops for this collection, okay? I wanna do a pr campaign that’s the biggest thing the fashion industry has ever seen. I’ll give you a– I’ll– I’ll up your budget for this, katie.

Katie: Um, excuse me. What?

Eric: Whatever you need. Whatever. [ Coughing ] Anything you need, katie.

Donna: Eric. Honey bear.

Katie: Eric, are you okay?

Eric: Yeah. Yeah, I’m okay. Yeah. You know my mantra. I’m not dead yet. Look, the whole world thinks that I’m– I’m alive and well and I’m at the top of my game. I don’t want that to change.

Rj: Granddad’s dying and we’re supposed to just act like it’s no big deal.

Brooke: Honey, it’s wonderful how much you’ve been there for your grandfather. How much you love him and care for him.

Ridge: He turned to you because he needed you, and you were there for him. And you guys, you created this amazing line that’s gonna live– that’S… the fashion world is gonna remember. And that means a lot to dad. So in a way, you’re keeping him alive. Well done. He hits his mark -center stage-and is crushed by a baby grand piano.

Deacon: Um, I got a pretty good idea how you feel about sheila. But hope, right now, I’m more concerned about you. You can’t tell me that you’ve forgotten all the crazy stuff that thomas has done.

Hope: Oh, you want to talk about crazy? Thomas is a saint compared to sheila carter.

Deacon: He’s got his own fair share of demons. You can’t have forgotten.

Hope: Dad, you don’t need to remind me of thomas’ past misdeeds. I mean, I know better than anyone. I haven’t forgotten.

Deacon: Well, I’m thinking maybe you have if you’re buying what this guy’s selling.

Hope: Thomas has changed for the better. And he is loving and caring toward me and he doesn’t have conflicted feelings, unlike liam.

Deacon: Baby, look. I don’t want to fight with you.

Hope: I don’t want to fight with you either. But, dad, you have to– you have to understand that things don’t just get to go back to normal now, right? I’m disappointed in you for even entertaining the idea of being involved with someone like sheila carter. For wanting to risk everything that you have worked so hard for, dad. I am hurt because you are choosing her over me.

Eric: I like this color. I think this color is beautiful.

Katie: It’s exquisite, eric.

Eric: Thank you, katie. Thank you. [ Coughing ]

Donna: Okay. Okay, that’s enough. I cannot let this go on. We need to call your doctor.

Eric: No, no. No, I don’t wanna see the doctor.

Katie: I– I have to agree with donna. Eric, you should at least check in.

Eric: No, no, katie. Every time I– every time i visit the doctor, it’s like visiting the grim reaper. You know, he– he– I don’t want to spend my last days being brought down by that. I want– I want to spend my days creating beauty. That’s what I want.

Donna: Okay. I– I get that. I really do. It’s just– okay, you know what? I– I’m not gonna push because the last thing you need is me nagging you like that.

Eric: The last thing you would be is– is a nag. You don’t nag me. I thank you both so much for your– for supporting me so much. Thank you. Thank you. But I don’t want my dying to consume my living. As long as I’m breathing, I wanna be able to create. I wanna be able to design. It gives me peace. Especially if this is my last– especially if this is my last collection.

Brooke: Rj, your father and i are worried about eric. But we’re worried about you too.

Rj: No. Don’t– don’t worry about me. I’m completely fine. I’m fine. I’m– I’m just– I’m gonna be working day and night to help granddad bring this line to life. That’s what I’m doing.

Ridge: Yes, of course. Because that’s the kind, considerate young man that you are, but… don’t take all of this and put it on your shoulders. It’s not necessary.

Rj: No. I– I am. I’m going to put this on my shoulder. This isn’t about me. This is about granddad. That’s the focus.

Ridge: I get that. I– I understand, but seeing him grow weaker and weaker every day, that’s not–

Rj: That– that’s not what I’m seeing. When he’s– when he’s in the creative zone and he– and he’s– and he’s focused on the design, it brings him life. It energizes him because he loves this. I– I– I just want to help him with that. I– I feel like that’s really important.

Ridge: What your mom and I are saying is–

Rj: I can see what you and mom are saying and I love the two of you. I do. I love you so much, but I need to do this. Okay? I need to know that when granddad’s passed on that I did everything that I could to… you know what? We just need to make sure that his medical diagnosis doesn’t get out. He can’t know that all these people know that he’s dying and he can’t know that he lost the fashion challenge, dad. That would–

Ridge: He’s never gonna know. He’s never gonna know that. He’s got too much pride and he’s got too much dignity to– to ever think that somebody gave him pity. But can we all try to remember something? It’s not like we handed him everything. The– the seat that he’s in is something that he earned a long time ago. Whoa! The new iphone 15. With that amazing camera.

Donna: Eric, please. I– I don’t wanna think about the end.

Eric: How can I not? How can I– if I have to face the last few months of my life, I’m gonna face it the same way I faced everything in my life. Every challenge. With courage and– and with determination. I mean, look– look at this. Look at this. All this– these ideas, they’re just pouring out of me. I– I can’t stop. I have to keep designing. If this is my last chance, I have to do it. If this is my– if this is my last collection, this is what I have to do.

Rj: No, you’re right. Granddad keeps– he keeps pushing himself. He’s putting– he’s getting out one incredible design after another. And you know, when he’s in that creative zone, he is unstoppable. I– I can’t, you know, I– I’m just trying to keep up with him. Honestly, keep up with what he’s telling me.

Katie: Hey, I’m glad you’re all here. I just came from eric and donna. Ridge, if you could see him sitting behind his desk in his chair. He’s so proud. I’m telling you, letting him win the fashion challenge, it was the most beautiful thing you ever could have done for him.

Ridge: Okay. All right. But there’s got to be something else we can do. There’s gotta be something we can do to keep him with us. No, I– I just thinking of this office without him in it. This– this family without him here. I– I don’t know how to do this.

Deacon: Honey, I’m not choosing you over sheila. I could never do that.

Hope: Well, you say that, but then you’ve gone and made her more a part of your life now than– than I am. And so, there obviously must be a little more care.

Deacon: That’s not true. Hope, I love you.

Hope: And I love you too, dad, but you knew what you were doing. You knew what you were risking.

Deacon: There’s like an– there’s like a disconnect here. You’re asking me to accept the fact that thomas has changed, right? Why won’t you believe my intuition that sheila’s changed too? Why won’t you extend me the same benefit of the doubt?

Hope: I understand that you think our circumstances are similar here. They are not, dad. Sheila is actually dangerous.

Deacon: You mean everything to me. You and douglas and beth. I love those kids, I adore them and I haven’t seen them in ages.

Hope: Because of sheila.

Deacon: Wait– wait a second. Are you– are you telling me that I can’t see them anymore?

Hope: Well, dad, as long as you are involved with sheila carter, I– I…

Deacon: Okay. Look, she doesn’t have to be with me, okay? I’ll make sure of it.

Hope: Dad, don’t you get there are consequences to your actions? And I knew I couldn’t trust sheila carter. But now I– I don’t even know if I can trust you.

Deacon: Honey, please, listen to me.

Hope: Dad, there is nothing more that you can say. Okay? As much as it– it kills me to say this to you. As long as sheila carter is a part of your life… you don’t get to have access to mine.

Hope: I don’t know how sheila did it. How she managed to manipulate you of all people? But, dad, she’s using you. And you need to wake up because she is dangerous. And I will not allow her or anyone who is close to her near my children.

Deacon: Hope, she’s different now.

Hope: Dad, people like that, who are missing that empathy part of their brain, they cannot change.

Deacon: But thomas can? I changed. I’m not the same man that I was years ago.

Hope: Dad, please. Sheila carter is in a league of her own. And you actually put in the work. I mean, dad! Look at il giardino. Look at everything you’ve done to repair our relationship. Look at– look at how you’re showing up for beth and douglas. I mean, they adore you.

Deacon: And I adore them and I adore you.

Hope: Okay, good. So, then you should understand why this decision is so hurtful. It just feels like you’re choosing you. Yet again. And I don’t– I don’t want to lose you. I never wanted to lose you, dad. But now, once again, you just– you aren’t even considering family or the impact that it might have on your daughter or your grandkids. So, I don’t want this to happen, but if… it will happen if you don’t cut sheila carter out of your life for good.

Brooke: Maybe I should have gone with ridge and rj.

Katie: I think they wanted to see eric on their own. Spend some time with him.

Brooke: Yeah. Something he doesn’t have a lot of.

Katie: I know. I was with him earlier and he was coughing up blood.

Brooke: What? He should be in the hospital.

Katie: I– I don’t disagree with you but it’s– it’s not our choice to make. It’s his choice. We have to respect it. I know that my situation is not the same thing, but I– I know what it’s like to face your own mortality. You know, my– my heart could stop any day. Which is why you have to take every day and– and– and appreciate it as the precious gift that it is and– and live every moment. And I think that’s what eric is doing. He’s– he’s doing what he loves. He’s designing and creating, and it’s inspiring. But it’s– it’s heartbreaking.

Brooke: But he is so– he’s so courageous. And you know what makes it hard is the fact that he built up this wall, and I just wish that I could get through to him.

Katie: I know.

Brooke: Or one of us. We just need to be able to tell him the truth. The truth that we know. That way we can love him and we can support him. The way that he needs, until the end.

Eric: I’m– I’m particularly proud of this one, actually. I like how it turned out. It– it gave me a hard time at first but– but it’s come out really wonderful, I thought.

Ridge: It’s breathtaking, dad.

Eric: I had a hard time at first, but then I had a lot of wonderful, great help with my extraordinary right-hand man. Rj, um, well, you know how I feel about you.

Rj: I– I do. Same way I feel about you, sir.

Ridge: Well, listen, all of this– this whole collection is uh, is amazing. And I know– I know you wanna– you wanna do this on your own.

Eric: Absolutely, I want to do it on my own. You have no idea how important that is to me.

Ridge: No, I– I do. I– I do understand that. I just– look, everything I know I’ve learned from you and those– those are special days for me.

Eric: I’m glad you haven’t forgotten.

Ridge: I would never forget any of that, dad.

Eric: Yeah?

Ridge: You’ve given me everything and– and– this is your collection. But even michelangelo, I mean, he had help painting the sistine chapel. He didn’t do it alone. He– you have help. You have my son and maybe it would make sense to have your son help as well. And I– I will stay in the background. I just thought maybe this would be a time for me to repay you for everything you’ve done. Not just as a dad, but as– as a– as a mentor, and I– I just, I don’t want anything. That’s a lie. What I want is to work with you one last time. What do you say?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Adam: Oh, hello, nate.

Nate: Adam.

Adam: Hey, will you hang on a minute? Have you seen victoria or victor here?

Nate: No.

Adam: Have you seen them anywhere? I mean, there’s nobody at the office.

Nate: I don’t know why you’d think I’d know anything about that.

Adam: Uh, it’s just a question.

Nate: If you recall, I no longer work at newman enterprises.

Adam: Right. And from that information, I should reasonably assume that you’re no longer involved with victoria, either?

Nate: Whether I am or I’m not, that’s none of your damn business. Although, I do find it interesting that neither victor or victoria chose to fill you in on their activities. So, I’ll reasonably assume that you haven’t risen that far up in the ranks from when you were my assistant. They’re still keeping you in the dark. Not exactly exactly a sign of confidence.

Adam: Mm. And a good evening to you, sir.

Sally: You just make friends everywhere you go, don’t you?

Adam: See, that’s the thing. Nate, uh, likes to make a show that he hates me, but way down, deep inside? He really, really hates me. Especially after losing his job.

Sally: What was that, that he said about your family still shutting you out? I thought you were getting past that.

Adam: No, forget about it. He doesn’t know anything. My relationship with my father has never been closer.

Nikki: Oh, god. I gotta get out of here. Okay. Okay. Oh, god.

[ Nikki sobbing ] What? Eve?

Cole: Victoria. It’s me, cole. Listen, I’m at the house that nikki told me to go to, but she’s not here and obviously, neither are you. I’m all by myself, I think. You know, it’s a little weird ’cause I’m in somebody’s house and I have no idea whose it is. Anyway, just give me a call as soon as you get this.

[ Jordan grunting ]

[ Jordan chuckling ]

Nikki: Claire? No. Who– who are you?

Jordan: You can call me jordan, for now.

Nikki: Oh. Oh. What do you want with me?

Jordan: Sh, sh, sh, sh. You need to relax. You need to stay calm. Don’t push yourself. You know, you really shouldn’t have pulled that iv out. You need it. It’s important. You need to stay hydrated. Your family should be arriving soon.

Nikki: My– my family?

Jordan: Yes. Isn’t that wonderful? And pretty soon, you’re going to be joining them. But in the meantime, you need to rest and relax. Stay calm. You’re not a well woman.

Nikki: Oh, my god. No. No.

Jordan: No, what, nikki?

Nikki: You did this to me.

Jordan: No, nikki newman. You did this to yourself. Your whole family did this to you.

Claire: Aunt jordan, we’re here.

Victoria: I thought you said she’d be home? That’s what she told me. Well then, where is she?

Claire: Hello? Uh, maybe she went back to the hospital.

Nick: What hospital?

Claire: I don’t know. I’m sorry. Can I get you all something? Some water, something warm?

Nick: Sure, water. It’s fine. Thank you.

Claire: Your mother will be fine. Please don’t worry.

Victoria: Why are you saying it like that?

Jordan: Visitors. Hello.

Claire: This is my aunt jordan.

Jordan: I’m sorry. I– I didn’t hear you come in.

Victor: Excuse me, we are looking for my wife.

Jordan: Oh.

Victor: Nikki newman.

Jordan: She’s still at the hospital.

Victoria: But uh, you said that…

Jordan: Oh, please rest assured, she’s going to be fine. The doctors are just going to keep her overnight.

Victor: Well, if you just give us the name of the hospital, we’ll find it.

Jordan: Well, I’m afraid that visiting hours are– are over. They won’t let you in.

Victor: Trust me, they’ll let me in.

Sally: So, I’m supposed to believe that everything is fine between you and victor? That you guys have mended all the fences and everything else that needs mending?

Adam: Well, not everything, but we’re working on it.

Sally: Good. I’m glad.

Adam: Yeah. There’s actually been, uh, quite a lot that has happened since the last time that I saw you, but, uh, you seem to be avoiding me ever since we were together that night.

Sally: I’m not avoiding you, adam. I just needed some time to process everything. That’s all.

Adam: I understand.

Sally: Yeah, I’m just still conflicted about everything.

Adam: No, I get that. I do.

Sally: Do you?

Adam: Look, neither one of us were expecting for that to happen, but it did. You know, I’m not gonna pretend like I’m not happy that it did. Because it proved to me that what we have is still there.

Sally: I just don’t want to go backwards, adam.

Adam: I’m not asking you to. All I’m asking is for you to look at me as I am now.

Sally: Yeah, but who you are now is still the man who admitted that he was willing to use his father’s illness to take him down.

Adam: But I didn’t go through with it.

Sally: You almost sound proud of that?

Adam: Yeah, I– I kind of am. You know, it showed some maturity, some restraint on my part.

Sally: And you know, you set the bar really low for yourself. It’s still a lie, adam. You still played everyone, including me. I really, really want to be able to trust you, but I–

Adam: I know. It was a precarious situation. But I finally did tell you the whole truth, okay? The old me– the old me would have buried that. But I didn’T.

Sally: You just keep lowering the bar. Eventually, it’s just gonna be on the floor, just a wrinkle in the rug. Like, “hey, everybody, at least I didn’t lie to everyone today, so give me some credit. It’s the new me.”

Adam: That’s correct. That’s totally accurate. But I am sincerely sorry that I could not let you in on what I was up to. Okay? We used to be a team. Is that why you’re upset?

Sally: No. I will tell you why I’m upset.

Adam: Okay. Okay, I get it. But look, I was a victim in this.

Sally: How?

[ Adam sighing ]

Adam: Victor was the one who told the biggest lie of all. He made this entire thing up, trying to trap one of us into betraying him. And of course, everybody suspected that it would be me. But surprise. It actually turned out to be nate.

Audra: Uh, so tell me, what’s going on? What’s the story with you and the newmans?

Nate: The story is, I’m not a part of that family, so they don’t need me.

Audra: Come on, that’s it?

Nate: In the end, it was. Victor pretended he was slipping. Forgetting things, people’s names, what year it was. You know, classic symptoms of early-stage dementia. He was pretty convincing.

Audra: Why would he do that?

Nate: Well, he thought his children were so angry that he had taken the reins at newman again, that one of them would betray him. Use his condition to oust him.

Audra: That’s seriously messed up.

Nate: You’ll get no argument from me there.

Audra: Hm. So, how did victor faking senility come back to bite you?

Nate: Well, I was the one who made the suggestion that we get him some help. Keep it quiet. Send him to a private sanitarium where he could be taken care of without any media scrutiny.

Audra: Except victor wasn’t really losing it and he thought you were making a play to take over.

Nate: Victoria would have taken over, but yes, that’s basically it.

Audra: Mm. You kind of walked right into that one, didn’t you?

Nate: Look, I understand how victor saw it from his perspective. Like I was making a move on his position, but I am a doctor. I was genuinely concerned about the man’s well-being. What? You don’t believe me?

Audra: No. I believe, um, that’s the story you tell yourself and anyone who asks, but I know you too well, nate. This wasn’t just a mission of mercy. You were making a play and victor shot you down. Yeah, yeah, yeah

real fruit…

and whole grains. Yeah, yeah, yeah

doing something

good for yourself

has never been this easy.

Just do what’s delicious.

Adam: He fooled us all.

Sally: And you’re okay with that?

Adam: With victor’s loyalty test? I mean, that’s what he does. I get it. He thought that his children had an agenda and I mean, he wasn’t wrong. Victoria wanted her old job back. Nick wanted to make sure that I wasn’t rewarded for anything. And you already know what my plan was.

Sally: That’s some family you got there.

Adam: Oh, yeah. We’re fun, aren’t we? And now after all this, he wants the three of us to come back together and work it out.

Sally: Mm. That’s clearly not possible.

Adam: No. Especially since nick and victoria go out of their way to avoid me. We can’t even be in the same room together. It’s kind of a theme for me lately. The people in my life, avoiding me.

Sally: I told you I needed some space.

Adam: I remember. But the truth is it was making me crazy. Not seeing you, talking to you. I would sit around and wonder where do we go from here? I mean, have you thought about that at all, sally? What happens now?

Victor: I would like to see my wife, nikki newman.

Jordan: Well, I can– I can order a car service for you. I would offer you my car, but I’ve been having some mechanical problems. A regulator, alternator, something like that.

Nick: A car service will be fine. Thank you.

Jordan: Oh, of course. Of course. Time is of the essence. Claire, would you mind?

Claire: Of course.

Victoria: You still haven’t told us what exactly happened to my mother?

Jordan: Oh, of course. Um, let me see what I can recall. Uh, we– we were having a lovely dinner and she was singing claire’s praises for everything that claire has done working with her and she was, uh, very effusive. Is that the right word? Um, and– and then at the end of the meal, uh, something changed and– and she just seemed off.

Victor: What do you mean by something seemed off?

Jordan: Well, she started rambling. And, um, just couldn’t seem to follow a conversation. Almost as if she’d been drinking.

Nick: My mother is a recovering alcoholic. She hasn’t had a drink in years.

Jordan: Oh, I see. I– I– I didn’t know that. That’s interesting.

Victoria: So, what happened? How did she end up in the hospital?

Jordan: Oh, well, um, after dinner, I suggested that she stay here. I didn’t think it was safe for her to be leaving to go to her sisters. I thought that if she spent the night, that maybe in the morning she’d feel better and could leave then. I mean, I know that I don’t like to travel when I’m not feeling well.

Victor: Now, tell me more about her seizure.

Jordan: Well, I’m getting to that.

Victor: No. I want to hear it now.

Jordan: Well, I offered to make up the guest room for her, but she was very insistent about leaving. And that’s when she started to have a seizure. She collapsed right there where you’re sitting, mr. Newman. So, I called 9-1-1. And thank god. They arrived within a few minutes.

Nick: Was she able to get treatment in time?

Jordan: Oh, yeah, she’s fine. They gave her a– a– an anti-seizure medication. Uh, uh, uh, phenytoin. And sure enough, she stabilized within 30 minutes.

Victor: I really appreciate you helping her.

Jordan: There’s no need for your appreciation, mr. Newman. I mean, you have a lovely wife. I felt like I knew her the minute I met her.

Claire: The car will be here in 15 minutes.

Jordan: Thank you, darling. So, can we fix you something to eat while you’re waiting?

Victor: No, thank you.

Nick: We’re fine. Thank you.

Victoria: No. None of us are hungry at all. We just– we want to see our mother.

Jordan: Well, I suggest that you have a seat and you all relax. A seat and you all relax. Because there isn’t going to be a car.

Victoria: Uh, claire just told us that there was a car.

Jordan: And there won’t be a hospital you’re going to either, I’m afraid.

Nick: What the hell is this? What are you talking about?

Jordan: What this is, young man, is that it’s time to start telling the truth. All of it.

Victor: What is this? Is this some kind of a sick story? Where’s my wife?

Jordan: All in due time.

Nick: I’m done waiting. Tell me where my mother is or I’m calling the police.

Jordan: Really? I wouldn’t do that if I were you.

Victoria: Are we supposed to be frightened of you or something?

Jordan: Well, that depends on what you’re frightened of. Now, if you want to see your mother again, you’ll shut up and listen to me.

Victoria: Ah, this is absurd.

Nick: Lady, I don’t know who you are or what you’re up to–

Victor: Sh, sh, sh, son, son. Let her speak. Go on.

Jordan: All right. But first, I have a question for you, mr. Newman. Do I look familiar to you? Maybe something in the eyes.

Victor: I’ve never seen you in my life.

Jordan: That is true. But you did know my sister, intimately. Eve howard.

Victor: Eve howard?

Jordan: Yeah. And she loved you and you betrayed her and you broke her heart. And you threw her out like she wasn’t even human. Because that’s who you are. That’s what you do, victor newman. And so I’m here because I’m waiting for all of you to make amends.

Audra: Do you wanna hear my theory?

Nate: Do I have a choice?

Audra: I imagine you thought the best way to protect victor was to clear a path so victoria and you could take over while he was in treatment.

Nate: Exactly. And it was a good plan. Victor needed help, or so we thought. Look, we had to keep it discreet so business partners wouldn’t get nervous. And somebody had to step in during all that to keep the company running. Now tell me, how was that betrayal?

Audra: It isn’t to me, okay? But victor saw your concern as a move against him and it’s his opinion that matters most.

Nate: I was just a scapegoat. If one of his kids had suggested what I did, he would have accepted it unconditionally. I was set up to fail right from the start.

Audra: And who was behind that?

Nate: Nikki, nick, adam. All of them.

Audra: You left someone out.

Nate: With victoria, it’s– it’s a little more complicated.

Audra: I’m sure.

Nate: And I do not want to talk about that.

Audra: Hm. You’re pretty angry, aren’t you?

Nate: Oh, I’m furious.

Audra: Furious enough to want to get back at them?

Sally: I have thought about that night.

Adam: Yeah. And have you come to any conclusions or are you still working it out?

Sally: I honestly don’t know how I feel about it.

Adam: Well, I guess as long as it’s not hatred or regret I can live with anything else.

Sally: There’s never been any hatred, adam. I’ve never stopped caring about you. Even in the moments when you were driving me crazy. And regret, that’s– that’s a different thing altogether.

Adam: Oh, I knew that was coming.

Sally: I would be lying if I said I didn’t feel something. But I don’t know, I also felt like I was betraying nick. Even though that doesn’t really make sense anymore. Or maybe I was just betraying myself for not having the strength to stop it.

Adam: Did you want to stop it?

Sally: No. And that’s what’s so confusing. Because I felt like I– I should have this massive regret. Like I was stepping back to a place where I just didn’t belong anymore.

Adam: With me.

Sally: Yeah. With you. But I didn’t feel that way at all. Look, I– I haven’t reached out to you because I knew that you’d be asking these questions. I– I wasn’t avoiding you. I just really don’t have the answers. You know, it’s– it’s it’s hard to explain. Obviously.

Adam: No, it is. But my feelings have been pretty clear. I can tell you exactly what I’ve been feeling since that night.

Sally: What’s that?

Adam: Longing for you. For us. And hoping that somehow, you feel the same way.

Sally: Oh, you’re not making this any easier.

Adam: I– I don’t mean to put you on the spot, but I would like to know. Do you believe there is any chance for the two of us, moving forward?

Sally: I have thought a lot about it. And I’ve put it out into the universe.

Adam: And?

Sally: So far, it has been unresponsive.

Adam: The universe is very busy. Or maybe it’s waiting for your heart to tell you what to do. To clear away some of that noise and doubt so you can listen to it a little more closely.

Sally: It sounds so simple.

Adam: Okay. It can be. Look, I understand why you are hesitant. I blew our first chance and possibly our second. I know I don’t have the best track record when it comes to maintaining relationships, but I want to fight for this one. Because I believe that night we were together meant something. To both of us.

Sally: Well, of course, it meant something. I think we’re just trying to figure out what it was. So, what do we do now?

Adam: You know what? I have a great idea.

Sally: Oh, god. I’m almost afraid to ask.

Adam: Let’s have dinner here tonight.

Sally: Like a date?

Adam: Like a proper date. No pressure, no expectations. And I promise we’re not going to talk about the future.

Sally: Or longing?

[ Adam chuckling ]

Adam: Right. No longing talk. It will just be the two of us, living in the moment.

[ Sally sighing ]

Sally: Okay.

Adam: Great.

Sally: Yeah. I mean, what could be the harm, right?

Victor: What kind of a scam is this? You want money? Eve howard was a deeply disturbed woman, you know. She made my life a living hell. But she never mentioned having a sister.

Jordan: Because we were estranged at the time. And then she died and we never had the opportunity to heal. If she hadn’t met you, if she hadn’t moved to genoa city, we would have had that chance.

Victor: It took you 40 years to come up with this cock and bull story?

[ Jordan laughing ]

Jordan: So, you don’t think that I’m eve howard’s sister?

Victor: I don’t give a damn who you are. We’re out of here. Let’s go.

Nick: Let’s go.

Victor: We’re gonna find this hospital on our own.

Jordan: Well, your wife is not at the hospital. And her so-called seizure was merely a ruse to get you all here. My mom’s alzheimer’s never changed how much we love her.

Nick: What do you mean my mom’s not at the hospital?

Victoria: What have you done to my mother?

Victor: Lady, we didn’t come here to play games, so you better tell me where my wife is. Or else.

Jordan: Or else what?

Victor: I promise you, you don’t want to find out. Especially not when it involves my family.

Jordan: Oh, your family. Do you mean like my sister? Did my sister, eve, cross you? Is that why you threw her out like trash, victor newman?

Victor: Where’s my wife?

Jordan: Oh, she’s safe, for now.

Victor: I’m through playing games with you.

Jordan: Oh, this is no game. This is as serious as a heart attack, which is what you will all be experiencing very soon thanks to the poison that you just drank in your water bottles. Digoxin. You don’t have long to live. And it’s going to be my utmost pleasure to stand here and watch you die.

Nikki: What have you done to him?

Eve: He died tonight. They took him away. At the end, he finally realized what it meant to be with each other. He was going to give me his name.

Nikki: You’re crazy.

Eve: Am I? Yes, I– I was going to marry victor. And we– we hurried because I knew he couldn’t last much longer, but it was too late.

Nikki: You talked victor into marrying you?

Eve: Oh, no, no. No, no. He asked me. He begged me to. He had to. I gave him a son. I gave him my life.

Nikki: No, no.

[ Nikki panting ]

[ Nikki sobbing ]

Adam: Well, the company seems to be taking off like a rocket.

Sally: I– I don’t know if I would go that far, but it has been encouraging. I’m building something and I love it.

Adam: Well, that’s great. What about nick?

Sally: What about him?

Adam: I mean, have things been tense? Have they been awkward at all?

Sally: Actually, it’s been the opposite. You know, there was a moment there where I considered that maybe he would pull the funding out of the business, but he’s followed through on everything he said he would and he kind of just lets me do whatever I want.

Adam: Well, nick is an honorable man.

Sally: Is that real or sarcastic?

Adam: Can it be both? Nick and I are just not destined to get along, but generally, I’ve known him to keep his word, so I’m glad he kept his promise to you.

Sally: Do you think that’ll ever change? You and nick?

Adam: That we’ll actually be friends? Uh, the odds are against us. Look, we’ve tried. There’s been times where I thought we were gonna have a breakthrough, but it’s just never lasted.

Sally: Well, never say never.

Adam: Well, I love the optimism.

Sally: So, what are you gonna do with connor this weekend?

Adam: Oh, he’s, uh, he’s got a basketball game on friday night. And then after that, we’re just gonna wing it. He made some new friends, which is great, so I don’t want to step on his plans.

Sally: Well, I’m sure he’ll make time for you.

Adam: I miss him. You know, he’s a great kid and after everything he has been through, he’s– he’s actually shockingly normal. You know, there was a while there that I was terrified he was gonna end up like… you know?

Sally: You?

Adam: Yeah. There was a time I thought he had the worst parts of me and that would make things difficult for him. I did not have an easy life.

Sally: But it’s getting better.

Adam: Oh, it’s much better. It’s in large part due to connor. It’s amazing how kids affect your life. It like, changes your perspective and things just become all about them. And it’S… I didn’t mean to.

Sally: No, it’s fine. Really, I’m not that– I’m not that fragile.

Adam: No, I know. Just, it was an insensitive comment. I know that you’re still mourning our daughter.

Sally: You know, I’m really not that hungry. And– and I really don’t want to eat this late.

Adam: Is it? Is it that late? I– I hadn’t noticed.

Sally: This has been lovely. But do you mind if we raincheck this dinner?

Adam: Of course. But you aren’t just blowing me off, are you?

Sally: No, we will get dinner. A proper date sometime soon. But tonight I– I just– I just really need to be alone and sort through some things.

Adam: Sure. I probably gave you a lot to think about.

Sally: You did and I’m glad you did. I just need to go through it on my own.

Adam: Yeah. No, I– I completely understand. Well, let’s get you up to your room.

Sally: Ah, just one more thing.

Adam: What’s that?

Sally: You can’t walk me to my door this time because we always get in trouble when you do that.

Adam: I mean, it’s a good kind of trouble, isn’t it?

Sally: Sometimes, it’s just trouble.

Adam: Can I at least walk you to the stairs? I mean, that’s not too dangerous, is it?

Sally: I think I can handle that.

Adam: Well, I guess this is as far as I go.

Sally: What a gentleman. Thank you for a lovely evening.

Adam: I’m so glad that I ran into you. Thanks for having drinks with me and very nearly having dinner. And I think we should have a– a real date soon. See where it takes us.

Sally: I would like that. I know you’re trying to be better. I can see it.

Adam: Thank you.

Sally: Well, good night.

Adam: Night. Well, I was not expecting that.

Sally: Neither was I.

Nate: I’m angry, but I’m not stupid enough to go after victor newman. That would be professional suicide.

Audra: What will you do?

Nate: Swallow my pride and move on to something else. Again.

Audra: I might be making a move too.

Nate: Really? I thought you were happy at newman media?

Audra: I have some potential opportunities I have to consider.

Nate: Okay. Where?

Audra: Well, I can’t say yet until the deal is finalized, but it’ll be a place where I have much more freedom than I do now. And you know, we could always use smart, strong people to come on board.

Nate: Are you making me an offer?

Audra: I could be, soon. You know, once everything is more concrete. That’s if you’re interested, of course.

Nate: I’ll listen.

Audra: You know, I like surrounding myself with colleagues who I can trust to get the job done, by whatever means.

Nate: Is that how you think of me? Um, I gotta tell you, I’m not as ruthless as you seem to think.

Audra: Mm. Keep telling yourself that.

Victor: You’re crazy. Let’s get out of here.

Nick: Let’s get out of here now. Let me try.

Jordan: You won’t get to the hospital. In fact, you won’t even get out of the house because all the windows and doors are triple-locked.

Nick: This isn’t moving. Maybe there’s another way out.

Victoria: Why are you doing this?

Jordan: Oh, I’ve already told you. So, claire and I can stand here and watch you die.

Victoria: Oh, my god. Cole?

Victor: Cole howard?

Victoria: What the hell?

Claire: Well, he had to be here for the family reunion. Didn’t he, mother?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Mamie: Unbelievable.

Lily: What’s that, aunt mamie?

Mamie: A day set aside for giving thanks. And I’ve never been more grateful in my whole life. I mean, I’m here with my family, together, the way we should be.

Devon: Mm-hmm. It is kind of unbelievable, isn’t it?

Lily: Kind of?

Nate: And speaking of grateful, I hope you all know how much it means to me to be included. Cheers.

Mamie: Cheers.

Devon: Cheers.

Abby: Hi. Happy thanksgiving, my friend.

Lauren: To you too. Well, you look about as stressed as I am. What’s going on?

Abby: Oh, you know, just the usual restful thanksgiving. Leaving here, devon and I are having drinks with lily and daniel and nate and mamie. Then, we were supposed to go to the newman ranch, but my dad called me and said they had to go out of town unexpectedly. Something to do with nikki. I have no idea what. Which leaves us more time for more turkey with the abbott family. And then, I am heading home and having dessert with just devon and dominic.

Lauren: Wow. It sounds like you need to rack up some frequent flyer miles just for that dinner. And thank goodness this only comes once a year, right?

Abby: Yes.

Lauren: It’ll take a weekend or two to recover and then we’ll be as good as new.

Abby: Please, god.

Lauren: Yes. And thank you so much in the midst of all of your chaos to come to the rescue of the baldwin-fisher thanksgiving catastrophe.

Abby: Got you.

Lauren: Yeah, you’re the best.

[ Both laughing ]

Tucker: Yay.

Audra: Thank you.

Tucker: Is this a ball or what? Huh?

Audra: Eh.

Tucker: I got one question about thanksgiving for you.

Audra: Mm. What is it?

Tucker: Why thursday? What’s the deal with that? They just– the pilgrims were just booked for the weekend, said, “you know what? Let’s just do it thursday. Get it over with.

Audra: You know, I have no idea, but you bring up some valid points.

Tucker: And what’s with the hats? And the shoes with the big buckles on them?

Audra: You know, you said one question. You’ve asked about a dozen.

Tucker: I’m sorry, go ahead.

Audra: Kyle’s role in bringing down jabot from the inside. How do you see that playing out?

Tucker: No, no, no. I don’t want to talk business on thanksgiving. You can do better than that.

Audra: Okay. I’ll try. What do you have in mind?

Tucker: Kyle abbott.

Audra: Excuse me? But didn’t I just?

Tucker: No, no, no. Not kyle abbott and jabot. Kyle abbott and you.

Audra: Okay.

Tucker: You always claim that it’s just fun and meaningless recreational sex, but I know you too well. You can sell that to yourself, but you can’t sell it to me. I think there’s something more going on. What?

Jack: Chelsea.

Chelsea: Hi.

Jack: Can I get you a drink?

Chelsea: I would love one. Oh, but nonalcoholic ’cause I’m driving.

Jack: Follow me, I have just the thing. I am so glad you are back in genoa city. I think billy is too. He missed you a lot.

Chelsea: Well, I missed him. I missed all of you. It’s so good to be home.

Jack: And connor’s doing well, I understand?

Chelsea: He’s doing great. Thank you for asking. He’s happy, jack, and he’s making friends, playing soccer and he’s loving school.

Jack: Well, when you see anita and connor later, please tell them we all said hello. I am so sorry you won’t be at our dining table, but we understand you want to spend thanksgiving with your mother and your son.

Chelsea: Well, thank you for understanding and I will send them your best.

Jack: Enjoy.

Ashley: Happy thanksgiving.

Jack: You all right, buddy.

Billy: Thank you very much.

Ashley: Hi. How are you?

Billy: Cheers.

Jack: So, you’ve made your decision?

Ashley: Well, I haven’t changed my mind.

Jack: A whole room full of people eager to have thanksgiving with you and you’re gonna leave.

Traci: Ooh, hi. Happy thanksgiving everyone. I’m so sorry I’m late. Everything took a lot longer than I thought.

Billy: We have an abbott family tradition. We take turns getting specialty desserts because uh, there’s a few of us that don’t like the uh, traditional ones that mrs. Martinez makes.

Chelsea: Like what?

Billy: Hm. Well, for instance, harrison, he doesn’t like pecans. He finds them disgusting.

Jack: Yeah. And?

Billy: I hate pumpkin pie.

Traci: It is–

Billy: I hate pumpkin pie.

Traci: A travesty, frankly.

Chelsea: And I am only hearing this now?

Billy: I know, I apologize.

Traci: I know. Chelsea, it’s a lot to process, honey. Listen, if you need to talk, you just call me.

Diane: Chelsea, I know that you’re having dinner with your son and, um, your mom, but please stay for some appetizers.

Chelsea: Well, thank you, diane. They look delicious.

Billy: I’m almost afraid to ask, but is adam joining you?

Chelsea: No. I had a conversation with connor and I explained that adam and anita don’t particularly get along and connor didn’t want to put ’em through that, so they’re going to spend some quality time together this weekend.

Billy: Well, good for connor. That’s very mature of him.

Jack: It absolutely is. Understanding the importance of avoiding conflict on a family holiday that’s about love and unity is not only mature, it is wise.

Ashley: Have I ever complimented you on your subtlety, jack?

Jack: No, I don’t think you have.

Ashley: There’s a reason for that.

[ All chuckling ]

Jack: That’s not that funny.

Audra: You know, if I didn’t know any better, I’d think you’re a little jealous I have any connection to kyle abbott.

Tucker: Protective. You are, after all, an essential participant in my plans for jabot.

Audra: Fine. Have it your way. We can call it protective.

Tucker: Mm-hmm. If I didn’t know better, I would say I heard a twinge of disappointment in your voice just now.

Audra: Ah, don’t read too much into it. You know bourbon makes me nostalgic.

Tucker: You know, I’ve been thinking. In some alternate universe, you and I would have– we would have been a perfect match. Unfortunately, in this one, despite everything we’ve been through emotionally and– and personally and professionally, I think maybe we’re just too– we’re just too alike to have a shot at being more than what we already are.

Audra: You really believe that?

Tucker: Absolutely, audra. What’s not to fall in love with? You’re brilliant and talented. And look at you, you’re stunningly beautiful. Hey. I think I am a little jealous. I just think in some other world, we would have been a couple for the ages. You’re never gonna get anything approaching that with kyle abbott. And I think you deserve it.

Lauren: You are such a lifesaver, abby. Letting us use society for our family dinner. I mean, leave it to gloria to show up from singapore with michael unannounced. No phone call. No heads up, no nothing and she expects a thanksgiving dinner. Homemade, right?

Abby: Well, it is gloria. What do you expect? At least she didn’t show up with a whole entourage.

Kevin: That is exactly right, abby. Leave it to gloria to change everybody’s– hi. Holiday plans at the drop of a hat. That thai food and football we were looking forward to, forget it. Instead, we’re having a family reunion nobody wanted.

Abby: Well, hello, kevin and chloe. How are you?

Chloe: Oh, festive. Look, we all have to endure this, so just put on a smile and pretend like you want to be here, like the rest of the adults.

Kevin: You know I don’t like surprises.

Lauren: Oh, come on. You want to see your brother and your mother.

Kevin: Michael, of course, for sure, but gloria? After she has been in and out of prison for the past six months fighting even more potential jail time? It is anybody’s guess what her demeanor is going to be, but I think we can all rule out stoic.

Michael: Come on. Come on. Come on. Hey guys! Ah, kevin! Look at you all. Ah, sister, one. My love. Love, abby. Thank you for making this happen for us today.

Abby: Of course.

Gloria: Hola. Over here. I haven’t slept in months, but I am putting one foot in front of the other because that’s how much you mean to me.

[ Chuckling ] Grandbabies. Where are my grandbabies?

Chloe: They are home with my mother, gloria.

Kevin: We’re gonna see them later for dessert.

Gloria: Oh, yay. Thank god for that because I haven’t seen them in such a long time and my life is not complete without them. They are the air that I breathe, the blood that flows through my veins. They are my legacy. They are my reason.

[ Gloria muttering ]

[ Gloria snoring ]

Kevin: Honestly, I thought it would be worse.

Devon: So, hey, aunt mamie. Since we’re all together like this as a family, I think it might be a great opportunity for you to share with us what tucker’s real intentions are.

Lily: And not the intention he’s trying to sell us all.

Devon: Yeah, because that changes depending on who he’s talking to. Remember that nate coming back to chancellor-winters depends on this information.

Mamie: And I have every intention of telling you whatever it is that I know, but not today. Today is not about business plots. Today is about family, gratitude, us loving each other.

Daniel: Well, you know, I don’t know the man like you all do, but I’d be willing to bet that even tucker mccall isn’t gonna be making any big moves on thanksgiving day.

Nate: Listen, whatever tucker is or isn’t up to, I have to say it again. The fact that you’re even considering letting me return to chancellor-winters after everything that went down, it means a lot to me. And I won’t let you down.

Mamie: You’re darn right that you won’T. Because you’re our blood and we won’t allow it.

Abby: Well, it is so good to see all of you. Michael, gloria, I’m glad that you’re home and I’m glad that you kept her out of prison. Just so you know, the chef prepared everything. It’s all in warming trays in the kitchen, but I did give my waitstaff the day off, so you’ll have to serve yourselves the wine and the dinner.

Gloria: Hey, hey, hey. No, waitstaff? Let me tell you, when I owned glow, there was–

Michael: Oh, your employees must be very grateful and I’m pretty sure that we can manage. Thank you so much.

Abby: Well, um, I hope you have a beautiful thanksgiving, and thank you for making society a part of your celebration.

Kevin: Thank you, abby.

All: Bye.

Lauren: How amazing is she that she put this whole family dinner together with no notice?

Gloria: I guess so. But after eating nothing but prison food for all these months, a warm, home-cooked thanksgiving dinner would have been so nice. Is that too much to ask?

Lauren: Frankly, yes.

Kevin: Chloe, why don’t we have a look in the back and see how our food is coming along?

Chloe: Genius.

Kevin: Thank you.

Lauren: You know, if you had your heart set on a home-cooked meal, it would have been great if you had given me some sort of heads up that you are on your way to genoa city, instead of just showing up on my doorstep.

Michael: To be fair, that wasn’t all gloria’s fault.

Lauren: Oh, how so?

Michael: I sent you several texts and they never went through. Every call I tried to make went dead. I mean, what should we have done? Stayed in singapore?

[ Gloria snoring ]

Ashley: I’m gonna split the difference, okay? I’m gonna go to the club, hopefully have a drink with tucker and devon and then I’ll be back here in time for dinner.

Jack: I guess that’s the best I can hope for. Though I can’t help feeling you’re wasting your time.

Ashley: Well, I guess it’s a good thing it’s my time and not yours.

Jack: I know you’re trying to bring out tucker’s humanity.

Ashley: We’ve been over this, jack. Yes, I want to help mend the rift between tucker and devon. And hopefully, that’ll show tucker that there’s no point in attacking jabot. I don’t know. Maybe.

Jack: There is no decency in that man. There is no civility left.

Ashley: I guess we’ll find out. Okay, I will see you all at dinner.

Billy: All right. Bye.

Ashley: Chelsea, don’t miss me too much.

Chelsea: Hurry back.

[ Indistinct chatter ]

Audra: So, what you’re saying is that I deserve someone like you, just not you.

Tucker: It’s complicated.

Audra: Enlighten me.

[ Tucker sighing ]

Tucker: Oh, brother.

Audra: What is it?

Tucker: See for yourself.

Audra: Wow. I didn’t see that coming. Clearly, you didn’t either. You’re not answering?

Tucker: Nope. I don’t trust that invitation any more than I trust ashley. You heard kyle’s recording of her conversation with jack? There’s nothing vague about that. She’s setting me up.

Audra: Mm. It sounded to me like she’s trying to turn you into a human being. And if she is setting you up, so what? You know, cat and mouse, you love the game. You miss it. And I think you’re holding out hope she does too.

Tucker: What’s your point?

Audra: My point is you can love and hate someone at the same time. Which you should know better than anyone since I think that’s exactly how you’re feeling about ashley. You love her every bit as much as you hate her right now. If it’s a lost cause, then tell her no. Exactly.

Billy: There you go.

Jack: Thank you.

Billy: You’re welcome.

Diane: Hey. Are you okay?

Kyle: I’m okay. Why?

Diane: Ah, you just seem a little preoccupied.

Kyle: Yeah, I guess I am.

Diane: Is it– is it because harrison is spending the day with summer?

Kyle: No. No, not at all. They were both excited about it and I got to spend time with harrison in the park this morning.

Diane: Then, let me guess. It’s about your involvement with audra for this plan of yours? Kyle, I have to tell you, I’m a little worried too.

Kyle: Did I say I was worried about it? I’m not. And you shouldn’t be either. I’ve got this and I’ll be using her way more than she would ever use me. You can take my word for it.

Tucker: You want me to say no to ashley? I don’t think so.

Audra: Then, I rest my case.

Tucker: You don’t have a case. Think about it. This is a golden opportunity for me to find out how far she’s willing to take this thing. No, really. I’d be a fool not to respond. In fact, I think I’ll do just that. Sure. Meet me in the jazz lounge.

Audra: You just did the exact opposite of what I proposed.

Tucker: That shouldn’t surprise you. Oh and for the record, don’t pretend to have more insight into me than I do.

Audra: Except I do, tucker.

Tucker: How do you figure?

Audra: Well, you know, that other life, alternative universe thing? You say that I know your heart there, but I know it here too. And to be brutally honest with you, I think you’re gonna end up blowing this whole plan of yours right out of the water because you can’t get ashley out of your head.

Chloe: Okay everyone, we can do better than this. It’s thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for. We are at our favorite restaurant. We have it all to ourselves. Michael and gloria are home safe and sound from halfway across the world. We are healthy.

Gloria: If you don’t count jet-lagged, malnourished or sleep deprived.

Chloe: Let’s make the most of it, shall we? Michael, kevin, how about you pour us some wine? And lauren, why don’t you help me in the kitchen?

Kevin: Great idea. Mikey?

Michael: Yes.

Gloria: Chloe, you just did that a few minutes ago.

Chloe: Yeah. It’s a very elaborate dinner. It just needs extra attention. I promise you are going to love every bit of it.

Lauren: Oh, well, then there’s no place I’d rather be.

Kevin: It is so good to see you, mikey. I really missed you.

Michael: I really missed you too. It feels like it’s been forever.

Kevin: So, how was your trip?

[ Gloria sighing ]

Michael: You can’t even imagine.

Kevin: You two were gone so long, chloe and I were starting to think you and mom were relocating to singapore.

Gloria: Oh, dear god. Perish the thought. All the while I was away, all I could think about was getting home to my family. It’s the only thing that kept me alive, angel.

Michael: All of which could have been easily avoided if you had managed to stay out of trouble for once in your life.

Gloria: Oh, sure, like it’s all my fault.

Lauren: Well, I think we’d all love to know what happened in singapore and why it took michael so damn long to exonerate you.

[ Gloria sighing ]

Devon: So, mamie. Listen, I think that it’s fantastic that you’re trying to bring the family together like this. I think it’s a great goal to have, but I’m sure that you understand that it hurts a lot more when you get betrayed by your own family than anybody else. Which is why this has been so difficult for us to get past.

Mamie: And I understand that, devon. It looks to me like all of you are inching your way back towards each other, towards family. And for now, that’s good enough for me. It’s a start. To progress. Hm? Look, I’m a realist enough to realize that not every family is so united.

Abby: And if you don’t believe her, you could head over to society and hang out with the baldwins and the fishers.

Mamie: Yeah. You know, I spent many years in the abbott house. I know how close they are. Now, that’s the strength of their bond. Their family business has thrived because of the– oh, you know what? I said I wasn’t gonna talk about business today. All I care about today is my belief in the core of my soul that our family is headed for something truly magnificent.

Lily: Well, then maybe you can tell us how tucker plays into all of that. Because I think we deserve to know.

Mamie: Well, all righty then. Since you’re all sitting here staring at me. No. This has nothing to do with tucker grabbing chancellor-winters for himself. This is all about you, devon.

Devon: All about me? What does that mean?

Mamie: Your future. His legacy for his grandson.

Devon: And that’s all this is about? That’s it?

Mamie: Tucker just never believed that jill had any rights to own katherine’s company. He believes that you are the true chancellor heir.

Devon: Okay. So then what? His plan is to push jill out of the company? Okay. Uh, I think we should probably warn jill.

Lily: Well, I mean, jill is already expecting this. Mamie hasn’t told us anything we don’t already know.

Devon: Yeah, that’s very true. Mamie, do you think you can share with us any specifics on what tucker’s plan is to overthrow jill?

Chelsea: He’s good.

Jack: Fantastic.

Billy: So jack told me that you rethought your potential future at jabot and that you have decided to come back in the coo position?

Kyle: Yes, I have.

Billy: That’s exciting. What changed your mind?

Kyle: Does it matter?

Billy: No. I guess it– I guess it doesn’t matter as long as you’re being sincere.

Kyle: What? You question my motives, billy? Relax. You have nothing to worry about.

Billy: Believe me, kyle. I’m not worried about it. But I am protective.

Kyle: Of what?

Billy: The company. Family. Jack.

Kyle: What, you think you need to protect my father from me?

Billy: I didn’t say that.

Chelsea: Hey, billy. Um, I have to go meet my mom and connor.

Billy: Yes, of course. Excuse us.

Ashley: What a surprise. Look at how cozy you two are. Happy thanksgiving.

Tucker: You’re surprised to see us here? I don’t see why. We’re– we’re trendsetters. We always have been. We decided that turkey and mashed potatoes and family gatherings are passé and if you’re hip, what you’re doing is drinking whiskey and eating cheeseburgers at a hotel bar on thanksgiving. Right? Probably a little too avant-garde for you though, ashley.

Audra: Well, uh, you have clearly a lot to talk about, so if you’ll excuse me. Tucker, thank you so much for dinner. Ashley, uh, happy thanksgiving to you as well.

Ashley: Thank you so much.

Tucker: Speaking of surprises, I didn’t expect to hear from you today of all days.

Ashley: Yeah. Today of all days.

Tucker: I would expect you to be gathered around the sacred abbott dinner table, laughing and enjoying mrs. Martinez’s sweet potatoes and arguing over who gets the wishbone and…

Ashley: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I’m gonna be home in plenty of time for all the festivities.

Tucker: So, what are you doing here?

Ashley: Well, you know, I started thinking about you and how are you gonna be all alone on thanksgiving. Yeah. Um, made me kind of sad for you and also, you know, devon, so I thought today would be a great day to start trying to bridge the gap. I’ve never been healthier.

Shingles doesn’t care.

But shingrix protects.

Proven over 90% effective,

Tucker: Ashley, don’t waste a minute of your time pretending to feel bad for me. I’ve been through calamities worse than the one you and I went through. And here I am. Please, can we leave devon out of it? I still don’t trust your motives when it comes to helping us reconcile.

Ashley: Okay. I know that you’re in a lot of pain, even though you act like such a tough guy. And I know the pain keeps piling on.

Tucker: Devon?

Ashley: Among other things.

Tucker: Hm.

Ashley: I texted devon and I asked him to join us here. You know, to try to make peace.

Tucker: Did you? Wow. How presumptuous. But you don’t actually expect him to show up any more than I do. So, what is the real reason you’re here? What do you want?

Ashley: That’s the real reason. Although, you know what? I have a proposition for you.

Tucker: Ah.

Gloria: For your information, lauren, I have been yearning to reunite with my family for months now. I am not going to contaminate this occasion by recounting the most unspeakable nightmare I’ve been through.

Michael: That’s a bit overstated, but I agree. There’s no point in dredging it up.

Gloria: Thank you.

Kevin: Um, I’m sorry, mikey, but I disagree. Our mother did something that landed her in a singapore jail and now she’s trying to shrug it off with a wave and a simple, “I hate when that happens.”

Gloria: Honey, it was just a simple case of mistaken identity.

[ Michael laughing ]

Michael: Well, that was the defense. But come on, gloria. Now that it’s all out in the open, let’s stop pretending, shall we? There was no case of mistaken identity. Per usual, you were as guilty as hell of the crime you were charged with.

Chloe: Guilty as hell of what?

Kevin: You know, we’re not gonna let up until you tell us, so you may as well get it over with.

[ Gloria sighing ]

Gloria: I think all of you are very cruel, asking me to relive the most horrible experience of my life. You don’t seem to comprehend the pain that this unfortunate incident caused me. Don’t you realize it is a miracle that I am alive?

Michael: Oh, good god, woman. You are really gonna milk this for all it’s worth. As if you kidnapped the prime minister’s children or committed a capital crime.

Gloria: My persecution was almost that bad.

Michael: Oh, enough! That’s enough! Let’s get our dinner, sit down, give thanks and then we will clear up this mystery once and for all. And if you don’t tell them, I will.

Chloe: Mangia.

Lauren: Let’s go.

Kevin: Having fun?

Chloe: Oh, merci.

[ Gloria sighing ]

[Deep exhale]

Lauren: So even though this was a shotgun thanksgiving, it brought us together, especially michael. No offense, gloria, but my husband has been gone way too long and I couldn’t be happier that he’s home where he belongs. We have quite the most interesting family, but we have each other. And that’s what I’m grateful for. Okay, your turn.

Kevin: Well, uh, michael, lauren, and chloe pretty much covered it all, but uh, I will just add that I am so– so grateful for our happy and healthy children. I’m thankful for my own health so I can enjoy and appreciate every single moment with them. And oddly, I’m thankful for this moment. Right now with my beautiful, happy and healthy family. Okay, gloria, you’re up.

[ Gloria chuckling ]

Gloria: Well, of course, I’m happy and grateful for my beautiful family too. Of course. But I am most especially grateful for michael. My brilliant son who saved me from a fate of unspeakable suffering.

[ Michael chuckling ]

Michael: For god’s sakes. You have drained this table of all the sympathy that you were ever going to get out of it. Or you’ve tried to. Just tell them.

Gloria: Oh, all right. Fine. If it will help you get on with your life. I had an affair with a diplomat. And then one beautiful, sunny fateful day, his wife showed up unexpectedly and caught us together.

Chloe: Uh-oh.

Lauren: That’s not good.

Kevin: How dare she?

Gloria: And she was one of those drama queens.

Kevin: Oh, one of those.

Gloria: Oh, yes. And then she had this completely over-the-top meltdown. Hurling insults at me. Unwarranted, all of them, of course. And then, she threw me out like a common trollop.

Michael: But wait, ladies and gentlemen, there’s more. Mother?

Gloria: All right. I went into the closet to retrieve my clothes. And yes, I happened to take one, two, three pairs of her designer shoes and this divine silk cocktail dress on my way out.

Kevin: You did what?

Lauren: You took the woman’s clothes?

Chloe: Despicable.

Gloria: Well, after everything I’d been through, I thought I deserved them. And the worst part, the husband’s the one who pressed charges. I mean, imagine the gall.

Lauren: And you got her off on a mistaken identity defense? What?

Michael: Yes. I am that good.

Chloe: Well…

Michael: Hear, hear.

[ Michael laughing ]

Ashley: You know that company that we acquired as a foundation for simply ashley?

Tucker: Oh, uh, glacade?

Ashley: Glacade.

Tucker: Yeah. What about it?

Ashley: Well, you know, it’s solid as a rock. Has a lot of potential. Why don’t you take it? Like just pick up right where we left off. And then you can just go forward in a positive, productive, fantastic direction.

Tucker: While you do what?

Ashley: Absolutely nothing. Yeah. You know, consider it a, uh, a gesture of goodwill because I reneged on our business partnership. And then maybe, uh, for the sake of our children and our grandchild, we can have some kind of peace and tranquility. And then, you know, it’ll make it easier for everybody. What do you think?

Tucker: Yeah. That’s okay. Deal.

Ashley: Yeah. Great. Sure.

Mamie: Tucker and I came into this with two common goals. Mine was to get back with my family and tucker’s was to get rid of jill so that he could clear a path for devon and lily. I’m for both of those goals, aren’t you? Ask yourself this. Would it really be so bad if jill didn’t have equal control of chancellor-winters anymore? Have you ever thought about what it would be like to not have to run every decision past her? To be able to own your company without outside interference? Have you ever secretly wondered what that might feel like? Hm?

[ Jack sighing ]

Traci: Jack, it’s long past time to eat and we’re all starving.

Jack: Yeah. I’m starving too. I was just trying to figure out whether to wait for ashley.

Traci: Okay. Um, let’s– let’s think that through together, shall we? We all know where ashley went and we all know who she’s with. So, do you want to let our thanksgiving hinge on what may or may not happen between ashley and tucker?

Jack: You ever get tired of being the voice of reason around here?

Traci: It’s a dirty job, but you know.

Jack: Can I have everyone’s attention, please? Um, dinner will be served momentarily. I just wanted to say a couple of words. I have so much to be grateful for in my own personal life. I married the woman of my dreams this year and it has brought a richness, a level of meaning and joy that has changed who I am as a man. As far as the family goes, I probably don’t have to say this has been a challenging year for the abbotts, on several fronts. More than once, I think it looked like we were going to, well shatter, splinter. But in the end, we got through it. Why? Because as strong as we all are as individuals, we all know from life that we are decidedly stronger together. Strong enough to handle anything that life throws us. We have so much to be grateful for and so much to look forward to. Yes, there will be challenges. Yes, there will be setbacks, but we will grow and learn and thrive as long as we face those challenges together. Happy thanksgiving.

All: Happy thanksgiving.

Traci: Hear, hear.

Announcer: Next time on the young and the restless…

Nikki: You did this to me.

Jordan: No, nikki newman. You did this to yourself.

Victor: I’m through playing games with you.

Jordan: This is no game. This is as serious as a heart attack. Which is what you will all be experiencing very soon thanks to the poison that you just drank in your water bottles. You don’t have long to live. And it’s going to be my utmost pleasure to stand here and watch you die.

Brooke: Ridge…

[ Ridge exhales in admiration ]

[ Brooke laughing ] What is all of this?

Ridge: See, our lives get so crazy, sometimes you gotta stop and say thanks. Steal a few moments just for us.

Brooke: Yeah? Is that what you’re doing? You’re stealing me away? Like you did all those years ago?

Ridge: There you are.

Brooke: Were you talking to me?

Ridge: We haven’t stopped talking since. Hit me like a ton of bricks the first time I saw you.

[ Brooke giggling ]

[ Ridge laughing ]

Ridge: That. That giggle and that look. Whether it’s across a crowded room at a party or…

Broke: Or riding up on horseback to get married?

Ridge: Mm.

Ridge: I’ve been caught up in the beauty of you for as long as I can remember, I’m thankful for you, brooke.

Brooke: Oh, thank you. Wow. Did you do all this?

Ridge: Nah, it was nothing.

Brooke: This is hardly nothing.

Ridge: Well, it pales in comparison to the beauty in front of me. Oh, I got you something.

Brooke: Uh-oh. You got me a gift? Wait, am I missing a special occasion or something?

Ridge: I don’t need a special occasion to celebrate you. Celebrate us.

Brooke: Okay. Wow.

[ Brooke giggles, gasps ] Ridge!

[ Ridge chuckling ]

Ridge: Quite a story, the two of us are.

Brooke: Aw! Look at those two.

Ridge: Kids.

[ Brooke laughs ]

Brooke: You’re right. We were kids.

Ridge: Hm.

Brooke: Oh, so handsome.

Ridge: I like that one.

Brooke: I do too. But I really remember this day. I was there in the garden and I looked up and I saw you at the top of that staircase at the fountain. You came back. A new man. Almost like our lives began all over again. Sleep more deeply.And wake u

Ridge: We don’t have to look at the whole thing now.

Brooke: I know. I’m– I am. You took the time to put it together.

Ridge: I may have had a little help, but I did find all the photos.

Brooke: It’s fabulous.

Ridge: Well, it’s our story, right? It’s, uh… our dreams. Had few missteps, but we found our footing.

Brooke: Well, there’s nobody I would rather walk hand-in-hand with.

[Brooke gasps] Oh, my.

Ridge: Yes. I would like to say that forrester creations will be forever in your debt for the belief formula.

Brooke: Oh, I still can’t believe how it all came together. This stuff is genetically engineered to be wrinkle free. It’s a code we spliced in. It’s alive, ridge, and it’s taking orders from us.

Ridge: You also set the runway on fire the way that only brooke logan can.

[Brooke chuckles]

Emcee: Here’s the woman behind brooke’s bedroom, the final word in sexy sophistication, the quintessential woman of the millennium, the one, the only, the fabulous brooke logan!

[ Audience cheers ]

Brooke: Just not sure whose reaction was better, yours or your mother’S.

[Brooke laughs] Portofino. Italy is magical. How did you have time for all of this?

Ridge: If you love someone, you make time. This is an important part of our life. I wanted to celebrate it.

Brooke: Yes. You have always been one for grand gestures. Our wedding on the beach.

Ridge: And then, I tried to recreate it because I wanted to win you back and you wouldn’t have me back. For good reason. And then I proposed to you.

Brooke: Stephanie’s ring.

Ridge: She’s had it for years. Now, I want you to have it.

Brooke: Are you asking me to marry you?

Ridge: And then I surprised you with a heart in the sand. You’re not leaving me. Not now and not ever. Thankfully, I got through to you right outside this building. Responsible for so many happy memories. Yeah?

[ Both laughing ]

Brooke: I’m back, ridge. And I’m here to stay.

Ridge: My logan.

Brooke: Yes, your logan. What are the chances? Reuniting on an actual bridge.

Ridge: It’s not that surprising, really.

Brooke: Oh, yeah?

Ridge: Oh, yeah. We have a secret weapon. We have destiny on our side.

Brooke: Oh.

[ Laughs ] Yes we do.

Ridge: You know what I think? I think we’re not giving the outside forces enough credit.

Brooke: Oh, what do you mean?

Ridge: You know, for our story.

Brooke: We’ve had plenty.

Ridge: Yes, and it always proved that we’re better together than apart.

Brooke: We’re also good at reconnecting.

Ridge: Yeah, we are.

Brooke: Well, this last time was rough. You didn’t make it easy on me. I had to chase you all the way up to aspen. Ridge!

Ridge: What are you doing here?

Brooke: What are you doing here?

Ridge: Taylor and i are back together.

Brooke: Obviously, I have done something. That’s why you’re here. But for the life of me, I can’t figure out what it is. Ridge, if you’re not ready to talk about it, that’s okay. I’m not gonna pressure you. All you need to do is get on that plane with me and we’ll fly home together and you and I can work through this together. That’s what we do. We can get through anything. I believe that. Tell me you believe that too.

[Brooke crying]

Ridge: I should have had more faith in you. And you did it. You showed that you had enough faith for both of us.

Brooke: And all I needed was italy to work its magic. Ridge.

Ridge: I found you. I don’t want to spend another day without you. My logan.

Brooke: You said “logan.”

Ridge: My beautiful, wonderful logan.

Brooke: Say it again. Just say it again.

Ridge: Will you be… my logan forever?

[ Brooke laughs ]

Brooke: Yes. Oh, my god, yes. Yes, of course. I mean, pure magic.

Ridge: Does this remind you of anything?

[ Brooke gasps, laughs ]

Brooke: Did you have those flown in?

Ridge: Well, you said they were your favorite.

Brooke: You are always full of surprises.

Ridge: Says the woman who set up a private concert with andrea bocelli at his house.

Brooke: Yes. I’ve got to keep you on your toes, mister.

Bocelli: Sai perché cerco in te la felicit che sar perché sei sei tu nei miei sogni e nelle nostalgie cosi fortemente mia ma con te vola via ma con te vola via l’eco di un dolore che pesa in questa vita mia ma io come potro essere sempre l’unico regalarti il sogno che tu m’hai fatto vivere amore mio come il sole anche di piu scaldi questo cuore tu sai perché siamo insieme io e te perché il nostro amore un incontro d’anime were we meant to be our love feels like we are constantly two people destined to be free so I will keep longing for your face somewhere out there is a time and place I’ll keep searching for that bridge that leads to our breakthrough it’s true yes, it’s true

[ Soldier shouting ]

[ Brooke screams, laughs ]

That words could not even try to describe letting love lead the way it can’t be denied it’s you and I for all time

Brooke: You continue to make me feel loved and appreciated. I can’t tell you how much that means to me. Thank you. For all of this. So sweet. So unexpected.

Ridge: Be prepared because I’m never gonna stop. I am so thankful every day… that I get to call you my logan.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Daniel: How’s your food?

Lily: It’s good.

Daniel: Mm-hmm. Yeah, I forgot how much you liked, uh, chocolate with your pasta.

Lily: Mm-hmm. Who doesn’t? I heard what you said. I’m listening to you, okay? I know what you’re doing. I just have a lot on my mind right now.

Daniel: What kind of stuff do you have on your mind right now?

Lily: Whether I should order pasta with whipped cream next.

[ Daniel chuckling ]

Daniel: You know, I don’t think that’s the stuff you’re thinking about. And in case, um, in case you might be upset with me, um, about other stuff, I, uh, I would just like to clear something up.

Lily: What’s that?

Daniel: I was getting ready to show chloe and sally the apartment and then, you know, sally, she started asking me if I had any general, like, design ideas.

Lily: You mean besides the poker table and folding chairs?

Daniel: Yeah, those. And then heather and lucy, they just showed up at the door. I mean, I didn’t even know that they were back in town and there they were, you know. I guess lucy wanted to surprise me and then well they succeeded on that. But, um, I mean, there was nothing planned about it. You know, I– I was hoping that you would be back from your meeting with devon and we could talk to sally, talk about her ideas over dinner.

Lily: Okay, daniel. Daniel.

Daniel: Yeah.

Lily: You’re babbling.

Daniel: Well, you’re not really making this easy.

Lily: What are you talking about? What am I not making easy?

Daniel: I’m not worried about you and lucy. I know that the two of you are good. You guys are like pals, but… I just want to make sure that heather moving back to genoa city isn’t going to be a problem for us.

Phyllis: Hey, you. Hey.

Danny: Hi.

Phyllis: Hi.

Danny: Good to see you.

Phyllis: You too. I’ve been looking forward to this all day. I mean, this and dinner.

Danny: Oh, um, I’m– I’m sorry. I, well, unfortunately, we have to reschedule it.

Phyllis: Oh, okay. Uh, did something come up like a last-minute gig or something?

Danny: Oh, no, no, no. It was nothing like that. Daniel had a last-minute change in his plans.

Phyllis: Oh, I get it. You told him that you invited me, right?

Danny: No, I didn’t even have a chance to. He just texted me.

Phyllis: Oh, okay. Well, just because daniel changed his plans doesn’t mean we have to. I mean, we could still have dinner together, right?

Chance: Hey. What are you doing here? Hey, mom.

Nina: Hi, honey. Oh, how are you doing? I just talked to your doctor. She said you’re gonna be just fine.

Chance: Yeah, of course I am. I take after my mother. I’m tough. Nothing can bring me down.

Nina: Ah, I love you. Now, what the hell is wrong with you, putting your mother through this? Oh. Oh, are you okay?

Chance: Hey. No, no, no. No crying. No crying. I can’t deal with the crying.

Nina: What do you expect? We’ve been through this before. You know, I can’t stand the thought of anything happening to you.

Chance: I know.

Nina: And you know, this job, it may not be too dangerous for you, but it’s definitely too dangerous for me.

Chance: Hey, look at me. I’m fine. Okay, I’m good as new.

Nina: Geez.

Chance: That’s a promise. Come on.

Lily: You know, you’re really making more of this than you need to.

Daniel: Well, you’ve been awfully quiet ever since we sat down to dinner.

Lily: That doesn’t mean I’m upset. I’m not upset.

Daniel: Okay, then tell me what’s going on inside your head.

Lily: I don’t know. I just, you know, I’m disappointed that I missed your conversation with sally, that’s all.

Daniel: But you’re helping already. I mean, it was your idea for me to hire sally and it was a brilliant idea. You are a part of all of this.

Lily: Am I being selfish?

Daniel: No. No, you’re not being selfish. I wanted you there. You know that I wanted you there. This was supposed to be our fun little thing and well everything just went a little sideways. What was supposed to be a meeting about me decorating my place, turned into a reunion with my daughter and my ex.

Lily: Yeah, I know it’s fine. It’s fine. Okay. It’s my fault. My meeting with devon ran late. You know, and it’s fine. I’m just bummed that I didn’t get to hear sally’s ideas. I was really looking forward to it, that’s all.

Daniel: Okay. Well, in that case, let’s get out of here. Let’s go back to my place right now. Tell you everything that she said to me. You can tell me what you think.

Lily: I thought you want dessert?

Daniel: Not as much as I want to give you a very private tour of my new apartment.

Lily: Like right now?

Daniel: Like immediately.

Lily: Well, you know what? I guess I’m actually too full for dessert too.

Daniel: Okay. Check, please.

Chance: I’m really sorry, I put you all through this.

Nina: You better be.

Sharon: Can you tell us what happened?

Chance: Yeah. Well, I’ll tell you, I never expected to get shot after a crime had been committed. The guy was long gone.

Summer: Then, how did it happen?

Chance: Well. Thank you. There was a jewelry store robbery downtown. We were working the scene. Robbery was already over. The guy was long gone, but he left a pretty big piece of evidence. And I guess he must have realized that he did because he actually came back to the jewelry store to get it. Guy didn’t think that we’d be there yet, so he was just as surprised to see us as we were to see him.

Nina: And?

Chance: Well, he pulled out a gun and, uh, let out a few shots before we could subdue him. Guess one of those bullets had my name on it.

Nina: Yeah, that seems to be a specialty of yours. Remind me when we get home, I’m changing your name.

[ Chance sighing ]

Chance: I’m really sorry for scaring you all.

Nina: How about this? How about you worry about us later? And just focus just focus on getting better, okay? And then when you’re home where you belong, you are so grounded.

Chance: Great.

Phyllis: I heard there’s this really great restaurant right on the lake. They have the most amazing tiramisu, I’ve heard. I haven’t had tiramisu in so long.

Danny: Santino’s, yeah. I– I heard it’s supposed to be really good.

Phyllis: Yeah. Well, let’s give it a try.

Danny: We’ll have to do a rain check. I’m so sorry, phylis. I– I made other arrangements for dinner when daniel told me his plans changed.

Phyllis: Ah. Hi, christine.

Christine: Phyllis. (Vo) ultimate endless shrimp is herewith a limited time flavor drop. New crispy dragon shrimp. One of seven endless choices. Right now, only at red lobster. Welcome to fun dining.

Summer: Uh, so I should get going, but I’m really glad that you’re gonna be okay.

Chance: It means a lot that you came. Thank you.

Summer: Heard the news. Had to at least check up on you.

Sharon: That’s so sweet.

Nina: It is really sweet. Thank you for your concern.

Summer: Well, chance was really there for me through the whole ordeal with my mom, so.

Nina: Ah, well, I raised him right. Listen, summer. I also wanted to say to you that I’m really sorry about what you went through with your mom. That must have been a nightmare.

Summer: Thanks, nina.

Sharon: She even lost her marriage to the love of her life. It was so heartbreaking.

Summer: Yeah, but I’m doing a lot better now, actually. I– I threw myself into work, which has been great and this guy helped, of course.

Chance: You know I got your back.

Summer: Well, I see you’re in very good hands, so get some rest, okay? And follow their orders.

Nina: Oh, trust me.

Summer: Bye.

Elena: Well, well, well, look who’s awake. And I’m glad you got to spend a little time with your mom and the rest of your fan club. But ladies, I’m gonna have to ask you to leave. You need to get your rest, chief. And we’re gonna be transferring you to a regular room soon.

Chance: Oh, I can’t wait. I gotta get the hell out of here.

Elena: Well, then you better behave yourself.

Sharon: Okay. Well, I will see you in the morning.

Chance: I look forward to that. Thanks for coming.

Sharon: Nina, good night. And you need to get some rest too.

Nina: Yeah. Well, I can only promise to try. Can I just have five more minutes with my son, please?

Chance: Mom.

Elena: Okay. Five minutes on the clock.

Nina: Thank you.

Elena: I’ll be back.

[ Summer sighing ]

Sharon: Are you okay?

Summer: Yeah. Yeah, I’m all– I’m okay. I’m just relieved, you know. I mean when chance was telling us what happened, it kind of hit me how dangerous his job really is. It makes me scared for him and all of them.

Sharon: Well, the good news is he’s going to pull through. He’ll be out of here in no time.

Summer: Yeah. Sharon, I hope you don’t think it’s weird that I came here.

Sharon: No, not at all. I– I know that you two have become friends. I’m sure it was more comforting for chance to wake up to a familiar face rather than some doctor or nurse he’s never seen before in his life.

Summer: Still, I’m sure that he would rather it was you.

Sharon: He opened his eyes and in the end, that’s all that matters. He’s going to be fine and you will be too.

Summer: Yeah. Good night, sharon.

[ Daniel laughing ]

Daniel: Great. You can add one more thing to my to-do list. Turn on the electricity. It’s all right though. I have a little, uh, flashlight app on my– on my dead cell phone. Great.

Lily: It’s dead. It’s okay. I have mine. I think I do somewhere here. Um, actually I do not. I think I left it at my place. Sorry.

Daniel: That’s all right. I thought I had a flashlight around here.

Lily: Well, do you have candles?

Daniel: Oh, yes. Ask you shall receive. Voila. Candles.

Lily: Perfect.

[ Daniel laughing ]

Daniel: Oh, look, here’s a flashlight.

Lily: Oh, look at that. Oh, I remember these. Remember? They were so quaint and useful.

Daniel: Uh-huh.

Lily: Well, if the batteries were any good.

Daniel: Okay. Put that on the to-do list as well. Get more batteries. You know, this might pose a bit of a problem. I mean, sally’s vision would, you know, be a little bit better if you could actually see what she was talking about.

Lily: I don’t know. I think it’s kind of romantic. I think it’s beautiful.

Daniel: Mm-hmm. I think you’re beautiful.

Chance: Oh, boy. All right. Let me have it. Read me the riot act. I know you want to.

Nina: Okay, I will. But only because you’re too groggy to argue with me. And since you’ve been shot, I’m just gonna say this and get it out of the way and hope it gets through that thick skull of yours.

Chance: Yeah, I know what’s coming next.

Nina: Oh, do you? Well, mr. Smarty pants. What’s coming next?

Chance: You think it’s time for me to rethink my life and my future.

Nina: Oh, okay. You’re better at this than I thought you’d be.

Chance: Yeah. You know what?

Nina: What?

Chance: I’ve got a surprise for you. When I got hit and went down, the very first thing I thought was, “not again.”

Nina: Really?

Chance: Yeah. Not that I’m old or anything, I know that. But it made me wonder. Am I getting too old for– for this?

Nina: Yes, you are. You absolutely are.

Chance: Next thing I thought is, “how can I keep putting my sweet mother through this when I love her so much?”

Nina: I love you too. More.

Chance: I love you too more too.

Danny: Does nina want us to bring anything to the hospital?

Christine: No. She’s all good. She said chance is just sleeping.

Danny: Oh, okay.

Phyllis: Wait a second. The hospital? Chance? What happened?

Christine: He was shot in an armed jewelry store robbery.

Phyllis: Oh, my god.

Christine: They caught the guy, but unfortunately he was in the line of fire.

Phyllis: Oh, no, this is horrible. I– I know that summer’s become friends with him. Uh, do you know if she knows?

Christine: I have no idea.

Phyllis: Okay. I’m gonna try to get in touch with her.

Danny: How’s nina holding up?

Christine: Oh, well, she’s nina. She’s invincible. A force of nature.

Danny: Yeah. That she definitely is.

Christine: If I were that robber, I would be thanking my lucky stars that the cops got me before nina did.

Danny: Oh, yeah.

Christine: Um, well, our reservation’s in 15 minutes. We should get going.

Danny: Yeah. Yeah. Good idea. Um, phyllis and I were gonna have dinner with daniel and lucy but they, uh, canceled.

Christine: I heard. That’s um, that’s too bad.

Phyllis: Yeah. But don’t worry, I’m not expecting an invitation to join you two.

Christine: Well, the idea hadn’t crossed our minds.

Phyllis: I’m definitely not gonna intrude in your time.

Christine: Very thoughtful of you.

Phyllis: Enjoy yourself. Have fun.

Danny: Uh, we’ll do dinner soon.

Phyllis: Yes. Absolutely.

Danny: When everyone’s available.

Phyllis: I look forward to it.

Danny: Yeah, uh, me too.

Christine: Good night.

Danny: Good night.

Phyllis: Bon appétit.

Chance: Thanks. Mm.

Nina: So, are you really having a change of heart or are you just placating your mother?

Chance: Mom, I don’t know. I can’t say I’ve fully made up my mind just yet. Plus, I probably shouldn’t be making any life-changing decisions while I’m sitting here with a hole in my chest.

Nina: Probably not. But listen, what if you just–

Chance: Mom. Too soon, okay? Plus, you know how many meds I’m on right now. I don’t even think I can decide what flavor jell-o I want for dinner tonight. Let alone what I wanna do for the rest of my life.

Nina: Okay. You’re right. I’ll wait. And I promise not to nag. Okay, never mind that. I don’t even believe that myself. Okay, how about this? I won’t nag. But is it okay if I really, really hope that you decide not to be a cop anymore?

Chance: As if I could stop you.

Phyllis: I’m sorry, danny.

Danny: Sorry?

Phyllis: Yeah, I’m sorry for getting so upset.

Danny: Phyllis, you don’t ever have to apologize for loving our son.

Phyllis: Do you know how lucky we are?

Danny: The luckiest parents in the world? No doubt about it, our son is one tough kid. You know, maybe I should get him some boxing gloves for christmas.

Phyllis: Boxing gloves?

Danny: Yeah. I mean, if he could lick bacterial meningitis, he could take on mike tyson. No, holyfield.

[ Phyllis laughing ] No, on second thought, that’s not such a good idea.

Phyllis: I was thinking maybe he could become a doctor when he grows up.

Danny: Mm-hmm. Win a nobel prize for discovering one of those amazing miracle cures. Sounds good to me.

Phyllis: What if he becomes a writer and writes one of those mommy dearest books?

Danny: You mean about how crazy his mother is?

[ Phyllis laughing ]

Phyllis: Well, what about you? Think of all the dirt he could dig up on you, the big rock star?

Danny: Good point. Don’t cross him.

Phyllis: Hey, supergirl. Hey, how are you? You heard about chance?

Summer: Yeah.

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness. All right. How’s he doing?

Summer: He’s okay. I just came from the hospital.

Phyllis: Oh, that was so sweet of you to visit him.

Summer: I mean, he’s my friend, so..

Phyllis: Well, I’m glad he’s doing better. I mean… why are you so sad? That’s good news.

Summer: I don’t want to talk about it.

Phyllis: Okay. You don’t want to talk about what?

Summer: Mom, please. Can we just not? Can we not?

Phyllis: Uh, can we not what? I’m just asking you questions about chance? Why–

Summer: Mom, seriously? Why do you have to grill me on like every thought that I have? Every mood that I’m in. Everyone I see. Everything that I do. I just, I don’t– I don’t get it.

Phyllis: Uh, I don’t really understand what’s happening now, but I– you know, I’m your mom, I’m not grilling you. You seem upset and I just want to help you.

Summer: No, that’s the thing. You don’t want to help. You just want to know what’s going on so that you can get involved and I just I really don’t want that.

Phyllis: I’m not trying to get involved, whatever that means. I’m just asking you some simple questions–

Summer: Okay, there’s nothing to get involved with anyway. So, let’s just drop it.

Phyllis: Okay. And you’re– you’re making a big deal out of nothing.

Summer: No, you’re not capable of respecting boundaries. I mean, look at daniel and heather.

Phyllis: What do daniel and heather have to do with this?

Summer: You’re trying to push them together?

Phyllis: Okay. First of all, that’s not true. And if you heard that from your brother, that’s a gross exaggeration. I’m not doing that. I just wanted lucy to come here and be closer to her father and closer to me, frankly.

Summer: See? You interfered.

Phyllis: Um, I didn’t interfere. And listen, I’m your mom, okay? And I care about what happens to you. Answer one question for me.

Summer: What?

Phyllis: Is there something else going on with chance? I mean, maybe something more?

Summer: Mom, please stop. Chance is dating sharon.

Phyllis: Oh, really?

Summer: What difference does it make to you?

Phyllis: It doesn’t really make a difference. But. [ Clearing throat ] I want you to be happy, okay? I care about you and I’m really wondering whether or not you’re gonna find true love. And I’d like you to,here.

Summer: How do you know that?

Phyllis: Uh, history, summer. Sharon is all about going after nick, period. She may do her little thing with chance and marry rey, god rest his soul. And she may do this like cat and mouse thing with adam, this love-hate thing, but at the end of the day, it is all about nick and only about nick for sharon.

Christine: Oh, nina, that is such good news. Yeah. Um, yeah. Sweetie, just keep me posted, okay? Um, and know that we’re thinking of you both and sending you so much love. Okay. Yeah, bye. Chance might be able to come home in a day or two.

Danny: That is amazing. Wow. You know, I– I feel sorry for him obviously, but I almost feel sorry for nina. I mean, you and I both know if she’d been to that jewelry store, she would have taken that bullet for her son.

Christine: Oh, there’s no doubt about that.

Danny: Can you imagine what it’s like saying goodbye to someone you love every single day and– and wondering if you’re ever gonna see them again? Like being married to the chief of police. Could I be a bigger bonehead? I’m sorry, that’s terrible.

Christine: No, you don’t have to say you’re sorry. It’s– it’s okay. I’m– I’m fine.

Danny: I– okay. Changing the subject before I put my other foot in my mouth. You mentioned something about chance and sharon. Um, is it something serious or what?

Christine: I– I don’t know. What I do know is that nina is not too thrilled about it.

Danny: Really? Oh, why is that?

Christine: Well, uh, sharon has sort of a dubious track record. Divorce from nick. Married adam. Uh, widow of chance’s former partner. Not exactly daughter-in-law material.

Danny: Yikes. Okay. Well, I guess it’s really none of my business though.

Christine: Okay. It’s– it’s totally none of my business either.

Danny: Yeah. Well, at the end of the day, I think the best we can do is what? Follow our hearts.

Christine: Well, that’s sweet. And, you know, kind of…

Danny: Corny?

Christine: Corny.

Danny: Simplistic. Relationships, they always seem to be so complicated for no good reason. Whatever happened to the simpler, the better?

Christine: Well, that’s us, right? The poster children of simple relationships.

Danny: Hear, hear.

Daniel: Not that I know anything about decorating, but I really like this one.

Lily: Yeah, I like that one. But, I mean, you know, it’s– it’s your home that sally is designing, right? Not a showroom. So, it’s whatever you like.

Daniel: Yeah. No, totally. She’s, uh, also putting together an idea board for me– well, for us to take a look at.

Lily: Yeah. No, that’ll be good because then you can kind of see how everything will look once it’s together.

Daniel: Mm-hmm.

Lily: What is that? Was that– is that drawers or shelves? Like, I can’t really see.

Daniel: I have no idea.

Lily: You know what? I have a great idea. I have electricity upstairs at my place. Do you want– do you want to go up there?

Daniel: Now, you’re just bragging. You know, if I’m being honest, I, uh, I’m not really missing the electricity right now.

Lily: Oh, me neither. You know what I am missing though? Is a bed, a couch, somewhere comfortable.

Daniel: You know what? I have a floor.

Lily: Oh, no, no, that’s not happening.

Daniel: No?

Lily: No.

Daniel: Okay.

Phyllis: Listen, for a long time, as you know, sharon and I were at odds. We hated each other. That’s the truth.

Summer: Mm. It doesn’t seem like you’re all that fond of her now either.

Phyllis: No, we’re never going to be friends, ever. We’ve learned to tolerate each other, be in the same room together, but we’re not going to be friends. In fact, I was gonna work with her and that imploded for some reason. But, I didn’t even feel the need to throw a grenade.

Summer: Okay. That’s a very big step for you, mom. I am proud of you.

Phyllis: Thank you. Thank you.

Summer: You’re welcome.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. So.

Summer: So.

Phyllis: Um, let me ask you a question. You have feelings for chance.

Summer: Mom, please. I have no desire to try to come between chance and sharon.

Phyllis: Okay. But am I wrong?

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: No, you’re not wrong. Yeah, I do– I do have feelings for him, but it doesn’t mean that I’m going to do anything about them, okay? So now you know, please just stay out of it.

Phyllis: Hm. Well, I’m probably not gonna stay out of it because you’re my supergirl and I love you. And I want you to be happy. Okay? But see, this is the new me and I’m gonna tell you that I’m proud that you’re showing restraint. See the old me, the old me would have been like, “go for it, go for it, go get what you want.” But the new me is proud of your restraint. It’s the new me. And, you know, I mean you didn’t learn that from me, so…

Summer: Well, mom, I am proud of your restraint too. Seriously. Keep up the good work.

Phyllis: Yeah. I love you.

Summer: I love you too.

Lily: Can I ask you a question now? Just to clear something up once and for all.

Daniel: Yeah. You can ask me anything.

Lily: Have I convinced you that I don’t care that heather is moving back here?

Daniel: Almost.

Lily: What? Just almost? Really?

Daniel: Yeah, I don’t think I’m quite there yet. You know, I– I mean, I’m such a skeptic.

Lily: Oh, well, I guess I’ll have to try again.

Daniel: All right.

Christine: Ah, that was delicious. Thank you.

Danny: Thank you. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Christine: Do you want to hear something weird?

Danny: This is me you’re talking to. Of course, I want to hear something weird.

Christine: Okay. Well, it’s not that weird. But to this day, even after all these years, even after eating at some of the best restaurants in the world, I find myself missing your famous pasta sauce.

Danny: You do? Really? Well, then I’ll have to make it again for you sometime. Yeah.

Christine: I would love that. Then, we’ll make it happen.

Elena: All right, mama. It is time to tell your son good night.

Nina: No.

Elena: He needs to get some sleep.

Nina: What about me and my needs? All right. Sorry. I was never very good at walking away from this one. I wanna thank you and everybody on the staff for taking such good care of him. I was really scared, but all of you and the angels came through for us again.

Elena: Well, no one’s happier about that than we are. So, no thanks necessary.

Chance: Go home, mom. I’m not the only one who needs sleep.

Nina: All right. Goodnight, my sweet son.

Chance: Night.

Nina: Sleep well. Remember, someone’s clearly looking out for you.

Sharon: Oh, hi, summer. Hi again.

Summer: Um, any updates on chance?

Sharon: No, none. All systems are still go for him to be released in a day or two.

Summer: Oh, that’s good. I’ll be keeping him in my thoughts. And just so you know, sharon, I am falling for him. I can’t help it. The heart wants what it wants and I’m not gonna back down.

Sharon: Summer. Are you okay? You zoned out for a minute there.

Summer: Yeah. No, I– I– I’m– I’m fine. I’m just really tired. I’m sure you are too. Night.

Sharon: Night.

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless…

Nikki: You just focus on taking care of your aunt. I know how important she is to you.

Claire: There’s something else I should probably tell you about her.

Nikki: Maybe I shouldn’t leave town at all this week. And with all this family upheaval, I mean–

Victor: Sweetheart, I do want you to take that trip. I mean, you’ve been looking forward to seeing your sister, casey, for a long time. And you haven’t seen each other for a while.

Nikki: Please, please. Someone help me. Oh, god. Damn it.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Jack: That would be the third time that you’ve moved those.

Diane: This is my first thanksgiving as your wife in your family home.

Jack: In our family home.

Diane: Well, I just want it to be perfect.

Jack: No one is keeping score. It’s thanksgiving day, the one day of the year we set judgments aside, we put battles on hold, and we come together in gratitude and unity. What could be better than that?

Diane: Have you met your sister?

Jack: Oh.

Diane: Last year at this time, she was on a mission to run me out of town.

Jack: But on the day of thanks, when the whole family was here, she showed restraint.

Diane: Well, a little. And only with a lot of arm twisting on your part. I mean, I was scared during the meal that she would stab me with a fork.

Jack: But she didn’t, and that’s the magic of the holiday.

Diane: [Laughs]

Jack: Hey, think about it. Think about how much things have changed between the two of you since twelve months ago.

Ashley: Things have changed for whom? You mean diana and me?

Jack: I was just reflecting on how your relationship has progressed.

Ashley: Yeah, I suppose that’s true. I mean, who would have guessed that I would owe you a debt of gratitude, diane, for saving my life. Although I still think there’s a part of you that would have preferred me to choke to death on a grape.

Diane: [Chuckles]

Ashley: Huh?

Diane: Course not. Of course not. And besides, jack’s right. We’re on the same team now.

Ashley: Another one of those things that nobody would believe, even me.

Jack: We’re all working toward the same goal– protecting jabot from a possible attack from your about-to-be-ex-husband.

Ashley: I know. I know. Two other things I couldn’t possibly imagine happening– that I’d actually marry tucker and then leave him on our honeymoon

Jack: Because of your incredible loyalty to this family that brought on your realization that tucker is the ass we all thought he was.

Ashley: Okay! All right. Thank you so much for that.

Jack: Look, can we just not talk about tucker or what he has planned for one day? Just focus on the things for which we are grateful.

Ashley: Right. Um… I’d actually like to invite tucker for thanksgiving dinner.

Audra: Yeah, I was surprised you reached out. After the way we left things, I wasn’t sure I’d ever hear from you again.

Kyle: Yeah, I think my emotions got the better of me last time we spoke. We both did.

Audra: Yeah, you’re right. I was a little hesitant to meet with you today. I wasn’t sure what I’d be walking into.

Kyle: I think we had too much of a connection to leave things the way we did.

Audra: Huh. So, now is when you tell me, in a less emotional way, why you backed out of a plan you agreed to only a few days ago.

Kyle: No.

Audra: Because I don’t need to be let down gently, kyle. I prefer the direct approach. So tell me– what’s on your mind?

Kyle: I want back in.


Victoria: Mom, hi. I hope you’re having a good visit with aunt casey. Give her my love. Look, I don’t want to interrupt your quality sister time, but would you give me a call when you get a chance? I could really use your advice.

Nikki: Water. Thank god. How much vodka did she pop into me? Haven’t felt like this in a long, long time. I never wanted to ever again. Claire! Why are you doing this to me?

Nikki: No. No, I can’T. Why is she doing this to me? Claire, or whoever she is, she wants me to suffer. She knows my weakness. No, not weakness. Disease. It’s a disease. Okay. You know how to do this. One day at a time. One minute… at a time.

Claire: Oh, mrs. Newman, I’m so sorry.

Victoria: No. That’s okay, claire. I thought you were headed out west with my mother. Something about going to see your aunt?

Claire: I came back to get some work, but, uh…

Victoria: What is it? What’s wrong?

Claire: It’s your mother.

[Knock at door]

Victor: Yes, come in.

Victoria: Something’s happened with mom.

Victor: What do you mean?

Victoria: Clair flew back to grab some work from the office, but then she got a call from her aunt in oregon.

Victor: What is it?

Claire: Nikki had some kind of seizure this morning.

Victor: What?

Claire: I don’t know much, but apparently she collapsed, and jordan called an ambulance. She’s been taken to the hospital.

Victor: Oh, my god. Get the jet ready. We’re taking off very soon, okay? Just get it ready. What is the nearest airport?

Claire: Redmond.

Victor: Redmond, oregon.

Victoria: I’m coming with you. We can grab nick on the way to the airport.

Audra: Kyle, you were adamant about wanting in on the plan, and then in a complete reversal, you were just as adamant about not betraying your family. You’re making me dizzy.

Kyle: I was working through it.

Audra: You accused me of using you.

Kyle: You called me a coward.

Audra: Okay, well, why would you even consider working with me?

Kyle: To get what I want,

Audra: Which is?

Kyle: Jabot. I want to be co-ceo.

Audra: [Scoffs] Help me understand, because you made it very clear you didn’t want it this way.

Kyle: [Sighs] If I told you I was willing to betray my family and stab my father in the back… would you believe it?

Audra: Why should I believe you’re not gonna change your mind again? You know, tucker thinks you can’t commit and follow through.

Kyle: Well, tucker’s wrong, and I have the evidence to prove it.

Tucker: Evidence to prove what?

Tucker: Okay, so what is this evidence to prove you are sincere in wanting to join us?

Ashley [Recorded]: I know that tucker needs and wants devon’s love and approval more than anything. And devon needs and wants a relationship with his father. I don’t see anything wrong with nudging that in the right direction. And just listen. Full disclosure– if all this “kumbaya” means that tucker decides to back off of jabot, wouldn’t that be wonderful? Wouldn’t it? It could actually happen. Because nobody can tap into tucker’s humanity like devon.

Tucker: This isn’t news. I assumed ashley was trying to manipulate me.

Kyle: But you were hoping it wasn’t true.

Tucker: I don’t know how my hopes or desires are relevant here.

Kyle: The point is, ashley is using your hopes and desires to her advantage.

Tucker: No, it sounds to me like she still thinks she can turn me into a better man. But even if you’re right, what does that prove?

Kyle: That I would throw my aunt under the bus to show whose side I’m on.

Audra: It was a dirty move. Sneaky, even. I’m impressed.

Tucker: I see. Dirty and sneaky kyle abbott.

[Chuckles, snorts] I didn’t think you had it in you.

Jack: Inviting tucker to our family thanksgiving dinner.

Diane: You’re not serious.

Ashley: All right, let me rephrase that. Not for dinner. Just here for a drink along with devon.

Jack: So you’re helping him get in touch with his humanity?

Ashley: Yes, exactly.

Jack: He never had any to begin with.

Diane: Yeah, talk about spoiling the mood.

Ashley: I thought you were my ally. What happened to being on board?

Diane: Well, it happens to be thanksgiving. It runs the risk–

Jack: Of destroying the day. Why would he even agree to this?

Ashley: Because of devon. I mean, obviously, tucker’s probably going to be alone on the most family holiday of all the holidays. He’s going to be miserable. Maybe he’ll be more vulnerable.

Jack: Good. Tucker will be sad. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. No, I’m putting my foot down. This is not going to happen. You can get together with tucker and devon and work your magic. Obviously, I can’t talk you out of it, but not here, not today.

Ashley: Jack.

Diane: I have to agree.

Ashley: You mean the two of you can’t put aside your dislike for this person the way I have? Honestly, for a greater good?

Jack: You’re asking us to ruin a family celebration by having that man in this house and pretending to be civil. It’s not going to happen.

Nick: Have you heard anything from mom?

Victor: She’s just not answering my calls.

Claire: I’ve been trying to reach my aunt jordan for an update, but she’s not picking up either.

Victoria: Maybe that means she’s bringing mom back from the hospital.

Victor: Wait a minute.

Nikki: Is that the jet? Is it ready?

Victor: Just a second. What do you mean, not ready yet?

Victoria: What?

Victor: Why in half an hour? Get it ready. We’ve got to get out of here.

Victoria: That’s too long. I feel like we need to be there now. Mom needs us.

Victor: Sweetheart…

Victoria: I can’t stand this.

Victor: It’s gonna be all right, okay? Everything will be all right.

Nikki: What kind of person does this? Get rid of it. Pour it out. You know where this will end if you don’T. Oh.

[Gasps, sniffles]

[Teary] Oh, god…

[Sobs] What have I done?

[Crying] God help me!

[Crying continues]

Victoria: Now claire, your aunt said nikki had a seizure?

Claire: Yes.

Victor: What else did she say?

Claire: Not much. She was focused on getting nikki help.

Victoria: She must have said more or given you some idea of what she’s dealing with. What did she actually see?

Claire: She said nikki started twitching. She got dizzy, and then her arms started jerking like they were out of her control. And then she collapsed.

Victoria: She collapsed? It sounds like it could have been related to the ms, especially if she was tired from the trip.

Victor: Okay, listen, we need to relay that information to the medical team. What’s the name of the hospital?

Claire: I don’t know. There aren’t any near the lake house.

Nikki: Didn’t you say your aunt suffered some kind of fall?

Victor: Where was she treated?

Claire: There’s a retired doctor who lives on the lake. He looks after aunt jordan because she hates hospitals. I should have found out where they were going. I heard “hospital,” and I didn’t get more information. I’m so sorry. I was just so upset that I wasn’t thinking.

Victor: I understand, but it’s imperative that you get ahold of your aunt, okay? We need to tell your aunt about nikki’s medical condition of multiple sclerosis. Do you understand? It could potentially be very, very dangerous. So call her again right now.

Tucker: Well, this was a promising start.

Audra: I’m assuming you’ve given some thought as to how you might help us achieve our goal.

Kyle: I played the role of the prodigal son. Told my father I accepted his position to be coo of jabot.

Tucker: Smart move.

Kyle: I want to show I’m a team player willing to put the family above my own personal ambition.

Audra: You sure he believed it?

Kyle: Oh, I know he did, because he wanted to. It’s a weakness too easily exploited.

Tucker: Is this the student trying to school the master now?

Kyle: Oh, no, this is a partner-to-partner observation.

Tucker: We’re not partners yet.

Audra: All right, well, we all need to be convincing and effective for this to work.

Tucker: I agree. So as coo, you’ll be on the inside of jabot where you can gather information.

Kyle: Exactly what kind of info are you looking for?

Tucker: Anything I can use to damage the company, destroy it from the inside.

Kyle: Is that supposed to be a joke?

Tucker: No, that’s what you’re signing on for.

Kyle: See, I want to run the company. There’s not a lot of incentive for me if there’s no company left to run, tucker.

Audra: I think “destroy” is too strong a word.

Tucker: Sorry. Would “cripple” be better?

Audra: Yeah, better. Look, right now the company is too financially stable. It could weather any kind of storm we could create. You do see that, right?

Kyle: Oh, I see, but I’m not saying I agree with it.

Tucker: Kyle, in order to put you in charge, I need control of the company. To get control of the company, I need leverage. Without some kind of, uh, some kind of damage or crisis at jabot, I don’t have that.

Kyle: Oh, I understand.

Tucker: Is this going to be a problem for you?

Jack: Just one tucker-free day, is that too much to ask?

Ashley: Jack, I think you can survive it for the sake of our family and the family’s company, okay?

Diane: I doubt tucker would even want to come,

Jack: Or devon, for that matter. I’m sure he has plenty of plans for the family he does love.

Ashley: Just one drink. Why are you fighting me on this?

Jack: Because thanksgiving should mean something. Thanksgiving is about family, ashley. I am grateful that you are here. For a time here, it looked like that wasn’t going to happen, things were so bad between us. I would like to be grateful all day that you are here.

Ashley: Okay, okay. But there are some things that are more important, jack, than just sitting together at a table, eating tons of turkey and then wanting to take a nap.

Jack: You’re missing my point. Today is about family. We need to value that. Can’t we just come together, enjoy each other’s company? This is about a family tradition we’re trying to keep going. There are far too few of those.

Ashley: I know. I know. Listen, I’m really grateful to you for always trying to keep these family traditions going. Honestly, thank you.

Jack: What do you think dad would do?

Ashley: I think he’d agree with me. I really do. And if you don’t agree with me to let tucker and devon come here for one quick drink, I’ll go to the club. I’ll meet them there.

Jack: You would really do that?

Ashley: Accept my other option, jack.

Diane: Ashley, ashley, I’d really like to have you here.

Ashley: And I want to be here, and I will be for part of it, I promise. But this is something that I have to do. It just is.

Jack: I’m not going to stand here and argue with you. That’s the last thing I want to do, especially today.

Ashley: Good.

Jack: So you’re gonna go through with this? You’re gonna spend part of thanksgiving with the most despicable man in genoa city.

Ashley: And his son, hopefully.

Jack: Why are you so damn stubborn?

Jack: Why are you such a control freak? It’s for the good of the family.

Jack: I know that. Doesn’t mean I have to like it. I still worry about you.

Ashley: I’ll be fine.

Jack: You will be missed.

Ashley: Just think of the opportunity to talk about me behind my back. That’s the real family tradition.

Jack: Be careful. Look, I got to check on things in the kitchen, okay?

Ashley: Come here. Happy thanksgiving.

Jack: Happy thanksgiving.

[Both sigh]

Ashley: Honestly. Thank you for what you said. That was very sweet.

Diane: Oh, well, I meant it. I wanted this to be our first family thanksgiving together without so much animosity.

[Both chuckle]

Ashley: Right. Yeah. I’ll be back, you know? I’m not gonna be gone that long. You understand why I’m doing this, right? You see the logic?

Diane: Oh, I–I do. It’s just there could be a problem with your plan.

Kyle: That’s a sound strategy if properly executed.

Tucker: And are you willing to be a part of it?

Audra: Dismantling your family’s company?

Kyle: Well, I have to be, in order for it to work.

Tucker: Why is that?

Kyle: You want to weaken the company without destroying it beyond repair. That requires intel only someone from the inside can deliver. Timing is everything.

Audra: Hmm. He makes a good point.

Kyle: And I don’t trust you. Either of you. No offense.

Audra: None taken.

Kyle: Look, you’re hurt. Part of you wants to hurt back. You want to punish ashley and all the people important to her. My family. I can see that.

Tucker: Cool. Did you get that from your freshman psychology class? I know more about you than you think, kyle. I always will. Don’t forget that. So, just so we understand, you are joining us, yes?

Kyle: Well, I’m not gonna let you burn it down out of spite. But I want to run the company, and this is the only way that’s going to happen. So, yes, I am in.

Tucker: Very good. I’m glad you found some clarity.

Kyle: Don’t make the mistake of playing me, and everyone will get what they want. Do we understand each other?

Tucker: I think so. Welcome aboard, again.

Kyle: Well, you don’t have to question my commitment to all this.

Tucker: Mm-hmm. You should run along back to thanksgiving right now. Keep playing the prodigal son, grateful to be back in their good graces and all that.

Kyle: I can handle it.

Tucker: Okay. I’ll be in touch.

Audra: I’ll walk out with you. I’m glad you’re back.

Kyle: Yeah. Tucker must be pleased with your efforts.

Audra: You don’t seem very happy for a man who’s about to get everything he wants.

Kyle: Audra, don’t try to manage me.

Audra: I’m not asking you to trust me, kyle. You know, in fact, I find it rather appealing you don’T. We’re talking about self-interest here. There’s nothing in it for me if tucker burns it down. Like you, I need this to succeed.

Kyle: Hmm, but it’s tucker I’ll be handing the means to cripple the company.

Audra: And when we gain control, we will build it back even better and stronger. This is what tucker does best.

Kyle: Hmm. That’s why I’m putting up with him. Well, with both of you. It’s clear who I’m dealing with.

Jordan: Claire?

Claire: Yes, it’s me, aunt jordan. I’m so glad you picked up.

Jordan: I just got back from the hospital. Understand?

Claire: Yes, I’m here with mr. Newman and two of his children. They’re very worried.

Jordan: As they should be.

Claire: He’s very eager to talk to you.

Victor: Hi, this is victor newman. If you’re on medicare, remember, the annual enrollment period is here. The time to choose your coverage begins october 15th and ends december 7th. So call unitedhealthcare and see how you can get more of what matters, with our broad range of plans including an aarp medicare advantage plan from unitedhealthcare. It can combine your hospital and doctor coverage

Jordan: Mr. Victor newman. I can’t believe it.

Victor: Well, thank you for helping my wife.

Jordan: What was that? Hello? Oh, this cell service is just so awful. Can you hear me?

Victor: I said thank you for helping my wife.

Jordan: That’s not something you need to thank anyone for. But she did give me a scare.

Victor: Please tell me how she is.

Jordan: The doctors are tending to her.

Victor: Ok, listen carefully. You must tell them that my wife has ms, multiple sclerosis. Very important you tell them.

Jordan: [Chuckles] Well, you’ll be happy to know that the doctors were smart enough to figure out that’s what was ailing her, mr. Newman.

Victor: Well, I’m very relieved to hear that.

Jordan: It is a great relief, isn’t it?

Victoria: So the seizure was brought on by the ms.

Victor: So she is responding well to the medication?

Jordan: They gave her some epilepsy medication, and, um, what was the name of it? Oh, I can’t remember. But, um… anyhow, it seems to be working, and she was over the episode rather quickly.

Victor: Well, that’s good news.

Jordan: They’re going to keep her overnight. They want to make sure that there are no chances taken. And since I do live in such a remote area.

Victor: We’ll be leaving here shortly. We are flying into redmond. We should be there in a few hours.

Jordan: Oh, goodness, it is handy having those private jets, isn’t it?

Victor: Now what is the name of the hospital?

Jordan: Hello?

Victor: Hello?

Jordan: Hello? Oh, no, not again.

Victor: Can you give me the name of the hospital?

Jordan: Oh, this service is breaking up again. Mr. Newman? Hello?

Victor: Hello? Are you there?

Victor: [Sighs] The call dropped.

Claire: The service can be terrible out there.

Nick: Well, mom’s okay, that’s the only thing that matters.

Victoria: What else did she say?

Victor: Well, they gave her some epilepsy medication, and apparently the seizure stopped.

Victoria: [Sighs] Thank god.

Nikki: Thanks to your aunt.

Victor: We owe her a tremendous debt of gratitude.

Claire: I’m sure she doesn’t see it that way.

Victor: Well, I’m looking forward to thanking her in person, okay?

Diane: Ashley, I–I do, I understand the logic of what you want to do, how it makes sense to take advantage of the emotions that the holiday brings up.

Ashley: Right, right, because tucker talks a good game, but he– well, like I told you, he wants devon’s love and approval.

Diane: Family connection.

Ashley: Yeah, and that’s why I thought today was a good day to try to get the whole process started, of getting, you know, tucker and devon back on track.

Diane: Well, I–I get that. I’m just asking that you don’t sacrifice the whole day for tucker. Look, it means a lot to jack to have you here for thanksgiving dinner. And believe it or not, it means a lot to me, too. Look, there’s no angle, no secret agenda, I just… I just love your brother. I love his devotion to family, and… I love that harrison is growing up, you know, feeling a part of it and having these traditions.

[Sighs] I mean, last year at this time, jack had recently learned that he had another grandchild.

Ashley: Yeah. Yeah, it’s a shame allie can’t be here. She’s off in paris pursuing her dreams.

Diane: Well, life does that. It pulls us in different directions, and I think that’s why this holiday is just so important.

Ashley: Seems like you really mean what you’re saying.

Diane: I do mean what I’m saying. And that’s why I hope you’ll be back in time for dinner, because… I just think the table would feel a little empty without you.

[Door opens, closes]

Ashley: Thank you.

Kyle: Wow. Smells delicious in here. How are the preparations coming?

Ashley: Your mother has, um, decorated the room in such a way that martha stewart would be jealous. Anyway, um, I gotta get ready.

Kyle: Okay. See you later. Wow, mom.

Diane: Yeah.

Kyle: [Chuckles] Uh… where’s dad?

Diane: He’s in the kitchen checking on things, but don’t worry. I’m sure mrs. Martinez is about to kick him out.

Kyle:, Oh, well, I met with audra.

Diane: Yeah?

Kyle: Yeah. Tucker showed up. Couldn’t have worked out better.

Diane: Really? What happened?

Kyle: I told them I reconsidered their plan to take over jabot.

Diane: Do you think tucker believed you?

Kyle: Oh, I’m in. I think you’re right about how I have to handle this.

Tucker: Hey, devon, period. Can we fix this, question mark. Can we try, question mark. I would love to spend thanksgiving with you, period.

[Door thuds, footsteps approach]

Audra: [Sighs] Well, looks like it’s just you and me.

Tucker: Hmm. Just the way I like it. I must say, I never understood the appeal of thanksgiving. Turkey sucks. It’s always dry. And nobody does the mashed potatoes right. They’re dry, too. It’s like hospital food, right? You want to go upstairs?

Audra: Tucker, no.

Tucker: Not that. Up to the dining room. Buy you a burger and a bourbon.

Audra: Oh. Yeah, sure.

Tucker: Geez. Your mind’s in the gutter these days.

Audra: Yeah, well, I’ve been spending way too much time with you.

Tucker: Mm-hmm. Hey, wait a second.

Kyle: I’m going to do this on my own. I can handle it. I’m going to undercut tucker, eliminate the threat, and then I’m going to make this my gift to dad.

Diane: Good for you.

Jack: Mother and son, a welcome sight on this family holiday. Ashley leave?

Diane: No, she went upstairs. I did my best to try to convince her to make it back for dinner, but I don’t know. Who knows?

Jack: Well, I appreciate the effort. I really do believe in the tradition of thanksgiving.

Kyle: You don’t have to convince us. We know how important this day is to you. And I love how harrison knows this is your favorite holiday.

Jack: I just wanted us all to be together. I cannot believe tucker is still invading our lives.

Kyle: Yeah, let’s forget all about tucker mccall. He has nothing to do with this family. Today should be about us, the abbotts.

Claire: Still no service.

Victoria: Oh, my god. Is it always like this?

Claire: It’s worse this time of year when the weather’s bad.

Victoria: I didn’t know that mom was gonna be in such a remote location.

Claire: Most people move to this part of the state because they want to be off the grid.

Nikki: You must worry about your aunt living out there all alone.

Claire: She’s one of the most capable people I know. But sometimes, yes, I do.

Victor: Hello? Hello? Let’s go.

[Sharp pop]

Nikki: Who’s there? Claire? Who’s there?

[Knock on door]

Man: Hello? Nikki? Victoria?

[Insistent knocking]

Cole: Nikki? It’s cole. I got your text about victoria. Is she all right?

Rj: I– I– I still can’t get over what zende was saying earlier.

Ridge: I think he’s just concerned about his place in the company.

Rj: He’s concerned about his place in the company? He– no one’s trying to cut him out. He’s a vital part of forrester. He’s a forrester.

Ridge: He is a forrester.

Rj: Yes.

Ridge: But he’s not my son. In his perspective, that’s the thing that’s made all the difference. And I picked you because you’re my kid.

Rj: You think it’d make a difference if he knew the truth about granddad?

Thomas: What is happening here?

Hope: What are you talking about?

Thomas: You. You just get sexier and more beautiful every time I see you.

Hope: Hm. Well, I think you might be just a little bit biased.

Thomas: Ah, because I’m in love with you? You feel the same?

Hope: Oh, did I say that?

Thomas: Ah, yeah. A little bit. Little bit.

Hope: Oh. [ Chuckles ] Hey. Doing okay?

Thomas: Yeah. I– I don’t know. It’s just– the highs and lows.

[ Chuckles ] It’s like… you’re saying these wonderful things. I love you so much. It feels so amazing and then– and then I think about granddad and how we might lose him.

Hope: Well, it is awful to think about him being gone. I mean, I– I can’t even begin to imagine what that would look like.

Thomas: And we can’t talk about it with anyone. I mean, granddad doesn’t want anyone knowing, so I don’t know. Whoa. Hey. Is everything okay?

Zende: No. I’m upset, aren’t you?

Hope: Well, about what?

Zende: About hope for the future being put on ice so that rj can learn how to design with granddad.

Finn: You didn’t need to rush right over.

Li: Well, my son wants to see me, I’m there. What did you need? Patient consults?

Finn: No. Um, we need to talk about your sister and my cousin luna.

Bill: You look so familiar, but I– I just can’t figure out why. Have we met? Oh, you know what? I’m sorry. I– I should’ve introduced myself. I’m bill spencer. And you are?

Luna: Uh, hi. I’m luna nozawa and this is my mom, poppy.

Bill: Hi, luna. It’s nice to meet you.O.

Poppy: Hello, bil

Bill: You look so familiar, but I– I just can’t figure out why. Have we met? Oh, you know what? I’m sorry. I– I should’ve introduced myself. I’m bill spencer. And you are?

Luna: Uh, hi. I’m luna nozawa and this is my mom, poppy.

Bill: Hi, luna. It’s nice to meet you.

Luna: Nice to meet you.

Bill: And poppy. Hello.

Poppy: Hello, bill.

Li: Why would we need to talk about penelope and luna?

Finn: Because they’re here in L.A.

Li: Ah. That won’t be the case much longer.

Finn: Well, that’s not the impression I got from luna last night.

Li: Last night? You saw your cousin?

Finn: Steffy and I had her and rj over for dinner.

Li: Well, why would you allow that girl into your home?

Bill: Poppy, poppy… that doesn’t ring a bell, but I cannot shake this feeling that we’ve met before. Maybe a long time ago? New york?

Poppy: I haven’t spent any time there.

Bill: Oh. How about san francisco? I used to go back and forth on business there quite a bit.

Luna: Yeah, yeah. We’re from san francisco, so maybe you guys met there. Maybe you share a few friends.

Bill: Yeah. Maybe– maybe we had some friends in common. I went– went to same parties, bars. Of course, now you have your beautiful daughter.

Luna: Oh, that’s so nice. Thank you.

Poppy: It was nice to meet you, bill, but I don’t think we know each other.

Zende: We brought hope for the future back from the dead, the three of us, and it’s performed very well. We should be rewarded for that, not penalized.

Hope: Look, I’m not thrilled about the financial reallocations either, but I am trying to roll with it.

Thomas: Yeah, it happens. Right? One line gets put on hold while the other one launches.

Zende: I get that and I’m certainly not opposed to granddad getting back in the design game. But why would he choose to collaborate with rj?

Rj: I’m just saying that maybe we should tell zende about granddad. Then at least he would understand, you know, why certain choices were made?

Ridge: Well, I don’t think so. I think it’s time for me to honor my father’s wishes. I haven’t been doing that lately.

Rj: Um, what do you mean you haven’t been doing that lately?

Ridge: Well, I told steffy, I told thomas and that’s wrong. As far as zende is concerned, I think it’s gonna be fine.

Rj: I just– I don’t want any bad blood between us.

Ridge: It’s gonna be fine. We’re family.

Rj: Dad, we’re a family that’s about to lose its leader. (

Li: Gotta give credit where it’s due. Luna moves fast. Not only is she apparently dating rj forrester, she managed to get herself invited to your place for dinner. Ah, a chance to cozy up to the boss up close and personal.

Finn: Mom, steffy is an excellent judge of character. She’s a forrester. She’s hyper alert for any agendas. And she didn’t sense any of that on luna’s part and neither did I. I know you have issues with aunt poppy.

Li: Penelope.

Finn: Whatever. But they don’t carry over into my relationship with luna. I’m happy that she’s here working at forrester. And I expect that we’re gonna spend a lot more time together, so I made her a promise.

Li: What kind of promise?

Finn: That I would do whatever I possibly could to make sure you and her mother repair your relationship and get along like sisters should.

[ Li laughing ]

Li: Well, be prepared to break your promise because that’s not happening. Not in this lifetime.

Luna: I’ve– I’ve seen you in magazines, so I have to ask, are you– are you bill spencer from spencer publications?

Bill: One and the same.

Luna: You were married to brooke logan a few years back.

Bill: Uh… [ Chuckles ] Our relationship did get quite a bit of press, yeah.

Luna: Well, I’m an intern at forrester.

Bill: Oh, you’re kidding? Well, what a small world. You’re obviously into fashion.

Luna: Oh, yeah, ever since I was a little girl. I mean, I’ve made it my business to stay current on everything that’s going on both on the runway and behind the scenes.

Bill: And how are they treating you over there?

Luna: Oh, amazing. Everyone’s so kind.

Bill: Good. Good. Now, if that changes, you let me know and I’ll set them straight for you.

Luna: Okay.

Bill: You must be proud.

Poppy: Always. Luna’s the best part of my life.

Bill: I can see why. I just cannot shake this feeling that I know you. And I– I normally don’t forget names and faces.

Poppy: Well, maybe it’ll come back to you one day or maybe I’ll remember. But for now, I’m having lunch with my very busy daughter, whom I don’t get to see enough of.

Bill: Well, let it never be said that dollar bill can’t take a hint. Luna, it was nice to meet you. And nice to meet you again… poppy.

Zende: Rj was handpicked to design with eric because of ridge.

Thomas: I’m pretty sure dad had nothing to do with it.

Zende: Thomas, this naive look, it doesn’t look– it’s– it’s not good on you. It’s not even convincing. You, steffy and now rj have the edge around here. And what do you have in common? You’re ridge’s kids.

Thomas: Okay, zende, this is a family business. You got here somehow, right?

Zende: Oh, yeah. Thank you for noticing.

Thomas: Look, I’m sorry that you’re feeling passed over, but I know for a fact this was granddad’s decision.

Hope: It’s true, zende.

Zende: Guys, rj didn’t even want to be in the business. He told me as much when he came back, like, what, 20 minutes ago? Meanwhile, I’ve been here the entire time. I basically worked to resurrect hope for the future. And granddad starts a new line and I’m not even in the running to design with him? It really feels like rj has home court advantage because he is ridge and brooke’s son.

Ridge: I know it must have been difficult working with granddad knowing that his days with us are almost coming to an end.

Rj: No. I– I was grateful. I feel grateful for every single second that I’ve got to spend with him. It’s been– god, it’s been an honor to– to– to try to help him fulfill this vision. It was an honor that he even chose me to work with him.

Ridge: That’s my dad. He makes good choices. Picked the right man for the job. You know, maybe he was making up for some time that he didn’t have with you.

Rj: Then I’m glad I came back when I did. You know, he’s– he’s an incredible educator. This has been an– this has been quite the education, but, um… he opened up to me in ways that he never has before. And it meant a lot to me.

Ridge: Well, you will carry that with you for the rest of your life.

Rj: I will. And his legacy too. I’m gonna carry that with love and honor and pride.

Luna: Well, that was exciting. I can’t believe we just met bill spencer. You know, he’s a really big deal. Like, spencer publications owns magazines and television stations here. See? He hasn’t really changed much over the years. Are you sure you don’t remember seeing him?

Poppy: I don’t think so. I mean, I think I probably just look like someone he used to know.

[ Phone chiming ]

Luna: Oh, shoot. I’m sorry. I have to get back to work.

Poppy: Yeah, yeah. No problem. We can do lunch another time.

Luna: Are you sure?

Poppy: Yes. You go and be brilliant and important.

Luna: Mom, I’m just an intern.

Poppy: The best intern.

Luna: Oh, my god. I love you.

Poppy: I love you more.

Luna: Okay, bye.

Poppy: Bye.

Li: My sister isn’t who you think she is. She has you believing she’s some scattered little hippie chick, smiling her way through life. Luna doesn’t even know who her father is. So, you made a promise to luna you stand no chance of keeping. This reconciliation you want with my sister and me will not happen.

Hope: Got a minute?

Ridge: Sure. What’s up?

Thomas: Um, well, we were hoping we could convince you to breathe new life into hope for the future’s budget.

Hope: Yes, it would be money well spent.

Thomas: Yeah. Look and– and it’s money that you’ll get back with the new collection and so–

Ridge: I know. I know. And I don’t– I don’t doubt any of that, but you know that the money that was earmarked for hope for the future is going to dad’s collection.

Thomas: I understand that. It’s– look, we– the whole team is– is a little frustrated. And when we’re trying to– wheel spinning, right? And I was hoping maybe you might have some extra money lying around, but I totally understand granddad comes first. He is number one priority.

Hope: Well, especially now considering…

Ridge: I get your frustration, I do.

Thomas: Yeah. Our team is– is really frustrated. I don’t think I’ve seen zende so upset.

Hope: Well, I think his anger was directed a little more at rj.

[ Luna sighing ]

Rj: Hello?

Luna: Hi.

Rj: Hi. You already back from, uh, having lunch with your mom?

Luna: Yeah. It got interrupted. Uh, eric asked me to receive the french lace delivery, so I had to cut it short.

Rj: I’m sorry to hear that. I’m not sorry to see you though.

Finn: Look, I don’t pretend to understand all the dynamics you have with your sister, but luna is innocent. She is sweet and she is kind and she is trying to make something of herself. She’s willing to put in the time and the effort that it takes and I think that’s something to be admired.

Li: Having either one of them here is a bad idea.

Finn: Well, I guess I’m gonna have to find out for myself. ‘Cause now that luna’s in L.A., I wanna get to know her better.

Rj: I’m think about that a lot. The next time I’m gonna kiss you.

Luna: Well, it seems to be happening more and more often.

Rj: Mm. That’s true. Is that a problem?

Luna: No.

Zende: Ridge is looking for you.

Rj: Well, why didn’t he just peek his head in and ask me himself?

Zende: Maybe he wanted to save himself the walk?

Rj: Oh, okay. Well, um, we’ll pick up this conversation later.

Luna: Okay. Uh, do you– do you need something?

Zende: You have no idea.

Rj: Hey, you wanted to see me?

Ridge: Um, I– I always want to see you ’cause you’re my son and I love you, but not… I’m, um– okay. Uh, why are you here?

Rj: What do you mean, why am I– zende just told me that you wanted– he just peeked his head into the design office and said you wanted to see me.

Ridge: All right. All right. Uh, it– it doesn’t matter. I think– I’m glad you’re here. Maybe we should keep talking about zende and what’s going on.

Rj: You know what? Yeah, we should. You know, he’s– he’s changed dramatically all of a sudden. He used to be a very chill, easygoing guy. What’s going on with him?

Ridge: Well… he was on a path. He thought he was gonna be a certain someone and then you showed up and threw a wrench in it.

Rj: You know I didn’t do that deliberately. You know that, right? I– I– granddad asked me to do something, he needed me and I did it. And the reason why he asked me was because he had a very big secret and you know what that secret was.

Ridge: Yes. We all know what that secret is, but zende doesn’t know. He doesn’t know that granddad’s dying. You know what he sees? Some young guy with no experience coming in and taking a job that should have been his. So he feels he’s getting lost in the shuffle.

Rj: But that’s not true. He’s– come on. Zende’s a very talented designer. Everybody knows that he’s a talented designer.

Ridge: Everybody knows that. That’s what makes it hard for zende.

Zende: So, I couldn’t help but nohat secret was.

Ridge: Yes. We all know what that secret is, but zende doesn’t know. He doesn’t know that granddad’s dying. You know what he sees? Some young guy with no experience coming in and taking a job that should have been his. So he feels he’s getting lost in the shuffle.

Rj: But that’s not true. He’s– come on. Zende’s a very talented designer. Everybody knows that he’s a talented designer.

Ridge: Everybody knows that. That’s what makes it hard for zende.

Zende: So, I couldn’t help but notice, you and rj?

Luna: What about us?

Zende: Well, you’ve been spending a lot of time together. It’s pretty obvious you’ve been getting close.

Luna: Yeah, well, rj is a good guy. We just– we enjoy each other’s company.

Zende: Yeah, okay. Way to play it down. For the record, interoffice relationships are not really frowned on here. Basically, everyone has had one. My one piece of advice: Make sure the door’s locked. You are a terrific intern, luna. You came in here, you rolled up your sleeves. You basically handled everything thrown your way.

Luna: Well, yeah, my job is to do whatever anyone needs, so.

Zende: Is that so? I’m not sure if you’re aware of my– my background, my experience, but I went to the finest schools, went to forrester international in paris. My designs have been featured on runways around the world. I live and breathe fashion. And I suspect it’s the same for you.

Luna: Yeah. Yeah. How did you know?

Zende: I can tell.

Luna: I mean, I can only hope to be as good as you one day.

Zende: You know, it’s really nice to be appreciated. That means more to me than you know. Just, uh, keep in mind, rj isn’t the only forrester coming up around here.

Rj: My take on zende is very different than yours, dad. I don’t want to seem paranoid or anything, but, um, I think he’s out to get me.

Ridge: That does sound a little paranoid. There’s nothing that zende can take from you.

[ Jill chuckling ]

Chance: Hey.

Jill: Oh. Oh… let me look at you. You are infuriating. Do you know that? You really are. Are you sure it’s okay?

Chance: Yeah. Yeah, I’m fine. I promise you, for the fifth time. I’m fine. I’m recovering but I’m being a textbook patient too. Don’t worry.

Jill: Do you know how irritating it is to come into town and find out that your grandson has been in the hospital?

Chance: Well, I took that bullet just to annoy you. You know that, right?

Jill: Hey, hey, hey, don’t joke about nearly dying.

Chance: Come on, I didn’t almost die.

Jill: Stop arguing.

Chance: Okay. All right. Sorry. I promise you, I thought being chief would get me out of the line of fire more often, but clearly, I was wrong.

Jill: Oh, I’m just so happy that your injury wasn’t worse and that that bastard’s been caught.

Chance: Well, justice will be served.

Nina: Thank goodness for that. And it seems to have been maybe a much-needed wake-up call.

Jill: What does that mean?

Chance: Mom, mom, please. Not– not anymore. Come on.

Nina: Chance may change course and quit law enforcement.

Jill: Is this true?

Chance: Okay. Why don’t we all sit down, let’s take a breath. Sit down, sit. I’ve not made any kind of decisions yet. At all. I’m just simply… considering the possibility.

Jill: Wow. That would be a huge shift for you.

Nina: Yes. But then jill and I would never have to fear again getting one of those telephone calls saying that something’s happened to you.

Jill: Listen, if you do decide to quit the G.C.P.D, I have an idea.

Chance: All right. Let’s– let’s hear it.

Jill: Well, in my opinion, it is high time that you followed in the footsteps of your grandfather and catherine.

Chance: Meaning what?

Jill: Meaning come to work with me at chancellor-winters. Honey, I will teach you the ropes of the business world.

Nina: Jill, that’s a brilliant idea and a great opportunity.

Chance: That is a very generous offer. Thank you. But that is a big step and I have no experience, so.

Jill: Well, you don’t need experience. You have exposure. You have lived your whole life hearing about the business. And you’re smart and you’re dedicated.

Nina: You’re hard-working. You’re great with people. You have excellent instincts.

Jill: And I can always use allies within the company. Honey, I know talent when I see it. I think you’d be really good at this.

[ Chance sighing ]

[ Kyle sighing ]

Diane: Morning.

Kyle: Morning, mom.

[ Kyle sighing ]

Diane: Morning.

Kyle: Morning, mom. Where’s dad?

Diane: Uh, he’s still upstairs. I wanted to talk to you before he came down.

Kyle: What did you want to discuss?

Diane: Uh, have you given any more thought to what we talked about last night?

Kyle: Audra and I didn’t exactly end on good terms. Okay? And it would be a tough sell to convince her that I want back in on tucker’s plan to take over jabot.

Diane: Well, don’t you think it’s worth a try?

Kyle: I don’t know if she would believe me. And tucker was already pretty suspicious about my intentions in the first place.

Diane: All right. Are you honestly worried about that or is there something more going on?

Kyle: Mom, I’m torn. Keeping this from dad feels wrong. I almost betrayed him and the company. Doesn’t he have a right to know?

Diane: Would you please stop beating yourself up?

Kyle: How can I? I mean, I almost sold him out to tucker for my benefit. If I don’t come clean, what does that say about me?

Diane: It says nothing. You reversed course. Thoughts are not actions. If they were, we’d all be in trouble. Kyle, listen to me. You should tell your father when it’s the right time for you.

Jack: Tell me what?

Kyle: Uh, dad, I um, I’ve just been, you know, wrestling with how to tell you something.

Jack: You can tell me anything. You know that.

Kyle: Yeah. I just want you to know how sorry I am that I’ve been a jerk about your offer to come back to jabot.

Jack: No apology necessary. It’s water under the bridge.

Kyle: Dad, don’t cut me so much slack.

Jack: No. You’ve already taken steps to straighten things out with billy, with me.

Kyle: It’s not enough. I– I want you to know that I am now considering your offer to be C.O.O. Of jabot.

Tucker: Hey.

Devon: Hey.

Tucker: How are you?

Devon: Not great.

Tucker: What’s going on?

Devon: Well… I learned something new about you this morning and it’s just like you can’t help yourself, huh?

Tucker: I don’t know what you mean.

Devon: I’m talking about your latest lie. And I’m sure it’s tough to keep up with all of them. But this is one too many and I have had enough.

Devon: So my only question to you is, are you that arrogant to think that you were gonna get away with everything?

Tucker: What have you been told now? What is it you think you know?

Devon: It’s not what I think I know. It’s what’s been confirmed. We’re talking about your collusion with aunt mamie.

Tucker: Oh, devon. We’ve discussed this, haven’t we? I told you there’s no truth to any of those allegations.

Devon: I know what you said, I was there. And it was a lie. And you told it to me over and over again. It started with you saying that you had no connection to mamie whatsoever. And then after I pressured you, you admitted that you had been in communication with her. But it was to try and make things better with me.

Tucker: It was.

Devon: It wasn’t at all because you’re also using her firm to make investments into chancellor-winters behind my back. Right?

Tucker: Listen, I have no say in how mamie johnson chooses to spend her company’s money.

Devon: Okay. But you did conveniently choose not to mention that she’s using your money.

Tucker: Not all of it. Most of it’s mamie’S.

Devon: It doesn’t matter though. You understand that, right? Because you told me one thing and then I find out the complete opposite. So, what are you after?

Tucker: Nothing.

Devon: If it’s nothing, then why all the deception?

Tucker: The only thing I’ve ever wanted was just to be closer to you.

Devon: You gonna stick with that? Okay. Well, I mean, that’s pretty much out the window because I don’t believe a word that comes out of your mouth.

Tucker: Okay. Hold… first of all, where did you get this information? Was it phyllis? Because you know she hates me and she’s not above spreading lies to try to ruin me.

Devon: Tucker, the only lies are coming out of your mouth. They’re not coming from phyllis or anybody else.

Tucker: I have tried my best to be honest with you.

Devon: That’s your best? ‘Cause I would sure hate to see your worst. And I’m gonna make something really clear to you right now. Keep your hands off of chancellor-winters because that’s neil’s legacy and it’s your mother’s legacy. You’re not any part of it. And I’m gonna make sure it stays that way.

Tucker: Yeah. I– I think you’re blowing this a little out of proportion.

Devon: No, I think I’m being actually really nice about this. So please keep your distance from me and my family. I’m done with you.

Ashley hey, are you okay?

Devon: Yeah, good to see you.

Ashley: What the hell have you done now?

Jack: Wait, you’re serious? You’re considering the C.O.O. Role?

Kyle: It, uh, it took me an embarrassing amount of time to come to my senses. But, um…

Ashley: What the hell have you done now?

Jack: Wait, you’re serious? You’re considering the C.O.O. Role?

Kyle: It, uh, it took me an embarrassing amount of time to come to my senses. But, um… yeah, yeah. Yeah, I am.

Diane: I can’t tell you how happy I am to hear that.

Jack: That is fantastic news.

Kyle: It feels good for me too.

Jack: Well, as thrilled as I am, I gotta say it comes out of the blue. Um, was there any one thing that prompted this change of course?

Kyle: I know I had numerous reasons of why I wasn’t interested before.

>Jack: Oh, you definitely were not interested. You thought I was giving you a token role.

Kyle: I guess I just needed some time to self-reflect. Starting after my confrontation with billy where he accused me of being a spoiled brat and trying to take his job.

Diane: I didn’t realize he said that to you.

Kyle: No, it was harsh, mom, but he was right. I needed him to call me out. It made me realize I need to back off and it set me on an entirely different path altogether.

Jack: Yeah, you implied you had something in the works.

Kyle: I did and– and then it didn’t work out.

Jack: And that’s when you realized you were interested in the C.O.O. Role?

Kyle: It gave me pause. But the final turning point was mom. She gave me some good advice on how to move forward.

Jack: Well, I am not surprised. She is a wise woman. What did she tell you?

Kyle: That I haven’t been putting us on the same level. I’ve been making demands and exerting pressure on you. And she made me realize that I need to prove myself to you as much as you need to prove your faith in me.

Jack: Seems like pretty sound advice.

Kyle: You know, getting what you want. It– it comes in stages, it can’t be rushed. So I have to be patient.

Abby: Hey.

Devon: Hey. Thank you for taking some time away from work.

Abby: Of course, you sounded riled up. What’s going on?

[ Devon sighs ]

Devon: It’s tucker.

Abby: Oh. What now?

Devon: So lily told me this morning that she and jill found proof that he is directly involved in mamie’s investment in chancellor-winters.

Abby: That bastard. So you have solid proof?

Devon: Seems that way. Yeah. Proving what we already suspected.

Abby: What’s he doing?

Devon: He’s using her financial firm to make investments. And one of which was to chancellor-winters. Which means he just flat-out lied to me about any collusion with mamie.

Abby: I am so sorry. I know that we suspected that there was something going on, but to know for sure? I mean, that’s horrible.

Devon: Yeah. And then when I went to confront him about it, he just doubled down and kept lying to me. So he’s done. I’m cutting him off.

Abby: I’m sorry, I hate that for you. You know what? Actually, I don’T.Beuse you de and tucker is just never gonna be that for you.

Devon: Yeah, I know. I’ve given him too many chances and he’s let me down every single time.

Abby: But if it makes you feel any better. I think he wants to be that for you. He’s just not capable of it.

Devon: Well, it doesn’T.

Abby: So, is tucker gonna back down now?

Devon: I don’t think he will. At all. I told him to keep his hands off of chancellor-winters. But I think he’s gonna do whatever he wants to do because he didn’t care about the fallout.

Abby: Even if the fallout is his relationship with his son.

Devon: Right. So, the only thing I can do is figure out how to protect my family and my company from whatever he has planned.

Abby: You know what? Let me talk to my mom. Maybe she knows something. There’s gotta be a way for us to find out what’s going on.

Devon: Yeah.

Devon: I think you just gave me an idea. I need to get a hold of the family because tucker does need to be stopped. And I think I know how to accomplish that.

Chance: So, the corporate world, huh?

Jill: Oh, my god. It’s your family legacy.

Chance: Mhm-hm. Did you two talk about this?

In unison: What?

Chance: Try to mix something up together again?

Jill: Absolutely not.

[ Text alert ] Ah, it’s devon. He wants to meet with– with me and lily. I really better get going. Please, please take seriously my suggestion.

Chance: I will, I promise.

Jill: Okay. All right, darling. I love you.

Chance: I love you more.

Jill: Both of you take care.

Nina: Bye.

Chance: Okay. I know you want to say something. So, go ahead.

Nina: Well, you know, jill and I never see eye to eye on anything. We don’t have the closest relationship–

Chance: And yet you’re already, like, wow, what a brilliant idea.

Nina: Well, it is. I was the first one to suggest it to you.

Chance: Yeah, I know. What a coincidence.

Nina: No, jill and i did not collude on this. I promise you. We’re both telling you the truth. It’s just, uh, synchronicity in the universe. Maybe it’s meant to be.

Chance: Sure.

Nina: Look, jill’s right. I mean, you’ve been around business all your life. It’s in your dna. I have no doubt that this would come totally naturally to you.

Chance: Even though I have zero interest in sitting behind a desk and crunching the numbers.

Nina: Yes, please. A nice, safe desk job. Something to help your mother sleep at night. What a novel concept. And you know, it wouldn’t just be crunching numbers. You gotta read people and set priorities. And see five steps ahead and weigh the pros and cons. It’s nothing you’re not doing anyway. Come on, this could be really great for you. Will you just think about it, please? For me?

Chance: Okay. I will, I promise.

Tucker: I’m really not in the mood.

Ashley: Clearly. I can see that. What’s got devon so upset?

Tucker: It’s a personal and private family matter. So it really has nothing to do with you.

Ashley: Unfortunately, whether or not we’re married, we share a grandson. Looks like you need somebody to talk to.

Tucker: Someone maybe, but not you.

[ Ashley sighs ]

Ashley: Can you afford to be so picky? Look at your life. I mean, it’s imploding. Our marriage is done. Your business is done. Looks like your relationship with your child is done. Well, it’s the truth and you do realize that whatever affects devon affects my daughter and our grandson. So, I mean… I’m willing to listen.

Tucker: Which accomplishes what, exactly?

Ashley: That’s a good question. Do you want to fix things? Because if you stop being such an ass, I might be willing to help.

Tucker: You’re right, devon is upset.

Ashley: Yeah. Why?

Tucker: Phyllis, I assume, uh… spreading lies and exaggerations about me. And apparently one of them got back to devon and it was the final straw for him and he has… cut me out of his life.

Ashley: So, what was this faux lie that destroyed your relationship?

Tucker: I made an investment in mamie johnson’s company and I didn’t tell devon about it.

Ashley: Interesting. So, she did get involved with you. Okay. So you had a business relationship with devon’s aunt that you didn’t reveal. Something else?

Tucker: Well, now mamie has invested in chancellor-winters. So devon suspects that she and I are colluding. And that my intention is to buy a stake in the company.

Ashley: Mhm. And I’m assuming he’s right?

Tucker: No.

Ashley: No?

Tucker: No.

Ashley: Well, that’s the only thing that makes sense. I mean, clearly, that’s one of the reasons you came back to genoa city, right? Is to get your hands on chancellor and jabot.

Tucker: Ashley, even if that were true. Why would i acknowledge it to you?

[ Ashley laughs ]

Ashley: Well, then don’T. You know, I don’t really care.

Tucker: Oh.

Ashley: Well, honestly, tucker, all this game-playing and lying. It’s exhausting even hearing about it. How do you do it?

Tucker: Wow. Your assessment of me is lovely as ever.

Ashley: It is what it is.

Tucker: We really have no common ground between us, do we?

Ashley: Actually, as I said, we share a grandson. There’s no greater common ground than that.

Tucker: So what?

Ashley: So… you’re a crappy romantic partner, right? You’re a barely decent father. But you do happen to be an excellent grandfather. I’ll give you that. So in the spirit of family peace, I’m willing to help you mend things with your son.

Tucker: Why would you do that?

Ashley: Well, definitely not for you. But I’m doing it for him and for my daughter and for that beautiful little boy.

Jack: You always have a way of saying the right thing. I am eternally grateful.

Diane: Well, I’m just relieved that I finally got through to our son.

Jack: And look, I’m grateful to you as well, for having the wisdom to change your position.

Kyle: Well, you and me both.

Jack: Listen, at the risk of pushing. I know it’s taken a while to get here. But is there anything I can say or do to lure you over the finish line?

Diane: I second that. What will it take?

Kyle: There’s nothing else you can say, either of you.

Diane: You know how much we want you back where you belong. With your family at jabot.

Kyle: I know, but… just talking it out with you has helped. Knowing the fact that you didn’t say it was too late and take the offer off the table. No, I– I don’t think I need any more time.

Jack: Wait. Does– does that mean?

Kyle: Yeah, I’m– I’m in. I’ll take the job. Back where I belong.

[ Jack grunting ]

Devon: So I wanted to update both of you as soon as possible.

Jill: What’s the latest?

Devon: I went to confront tucker about what you told me regarding his involvement in mamie’s investment.

Jill: And what did he have to say for himself?

Devon: What do you think he had to say? He denied it.

Jill: Oh, of course, he did. He wouldn’t reveal any of his cards to me either when I spoke to him. But I had this teeny little hope that he would be honest with his son.

Devon: Oh, no, he– he doesn’t care at all about that.

Lily: So he didn’t admit to anything?

Devon: Nothing about the collusion. But I believe he does have some kind of plan in the works. And we need to be ready for it.

Jill: Oh, we will be.

Lily: Yeah. I mean, now that we know he poses a threat, we’ll definitely take precautions.

Devon: Yeah.

Lily: But I’m really sorry that he let you down again. I really do believe you deserve better.

Devon: Thank you. I appreciate you saying that. I’m just glad that I know what I’m dealing with and how to move forward with him. ‘Cause he cannot be trusted. And he’s not worth any more of my time.

Lily: Well, look, I don’t want to make light of what you’re going through. But I’m really happy that you’re finally seeing who he really is.

Devon: I’m a little disappointed, more for dominic than anyone else in all this. But I don’t have a choice but to cut him off.

Lily: Well, maybe it’ll be a wake-up call for him.

Jill: No, I appreciate your optimism but I don’t think it’s gonna do him any good to have false hope. Tucker is tucker.

Devon: Very true. And in the meantime, we all need to pull together to figure out how to protect the company from whatever attack is coming.

Jill: Agreed.

Devon: In order to do that though, we need to know what tucker is up to.

Lily: Well, which is hard because he’s not honest about anything.

Devon: Exactly. But I have an idea of how to figure out what tucker’s plans are. That I’m hoping both of you will be on board with. You know that feeling of having to rewash dishesthat didn’t get clean? I don’T.

Tucker: You’re serious? You would actually help me with devon?

Ashley: I think that devon wants and genuinely needs to have a relationship with you. And this hits me where I live, tucker. I know what it’s like to cut off a parent and live with so many regrets about the lost time.

Tucker: If you could actually do what you’re proposing, obviously, that would be great. But…

Ashley: But what? This isn’t a negotiation. It’s a yes or no thing.

Tucker: How much pull do you have with devon?

>>Ashley: Well, I have a lot of pull with my daughter and you know how much he loves her. I think it’s worth a shot. You either do or you don’t, so…

Tucker: And what is it you want in return?

Ashley: I– I just can’t do this.

Tucker: All right. There she goes, running away.

Ashley: You know what? Don’t you even start with me. You want to go there?

Tucker: If I accept this offer that doesn’t make us friends.

Ashley: I don’t want to be your friend. I see there’s no possibility in that.

Tucker: Have you ever seen otherwise? Why don’t you just tell me this whole thing has been a ruse since we got back from paris. I’ll respect you a little more.

Ashley: I don’t need and want your respect.

Tucker: Oh, gee. I thought you said we could be civil towards one another.

Ashley: Yeah, I did because I thought it would be nice to gush over our gorgeous grandson’s photos someday or maybe sit in a family dinner without causing a scene. Other than that, I want nothing from you.

Tucker: Okay. Fine. I accept your offer. Thank you very much.

Ashley: You’re welcome. Fantastic. Have a great day.

Tucker: You too.

Ashley: You too.

Nina: You’re placating your mother, aren’t you? You’re humoring her so she’ll stop pushing.

Chase: Yeah, maybe just a little bit. Because I’m not ready to upend my whole career a week after getting shot. I mean, does that make any sense?

Nina: No. Not at all. But okay. I’ll support you in whatever you decide. Whether it’s chancellor-winters or some other direction.

Chance: Well, thank you. It’s just– it’s a big change, mom. It’s like stepping off a cliff. I don’t even know if I’m gonna be good at it.

Nina: I know. We’ve had this discussion before about you changing direction. I’m well aware of how difficult it would be for you to change course like this.

Chance: Yeah. I committed myself to a life of service. To serve and protect. It’s a mindset.

Nina: A mission.

Chase: Exactly. In everything I’ve done, that has been the core.

Nina: But it’s not the first time you’ve ended up hurt. And in the hospital. Just fighting for your life. I mean, how many more times, chance? Haven’t you given enough?

Chance: I– I– I’m sorry. I know I– I know I scared you.

Nina: Surviving this last bullet should be a reminder of how lucky you are to be alive, sitting here and talking to me. I mean, I’m fun to talk to, right?

[ Nina sniffling ]

Chance: Yes. Yes, you are fun to talk to. I’m never not gonna be grateful for that.

Nina: You gotta stick around, chance, okay? For my sake. For everyone else that loves you.

Chance: Trust me, you’re stuck with me.

Nina: Good.

Chance: I’ll be honest with you. There’s just– there’s one thing that’s been… just eating at me about all this.

Nina: What? Tell me.

Chance: You know, my whole life, I just ran away from the chancellor legacy. I didn’t want anything to do with it. And I, uh– I wonder if it’s because i thought I wasn’t worthy enough. You know, I wouldn’t measure up.

[ Nina scoffs ]

Nina: Well, you know what I’m going to say about that. And I think jill would agree with me. In fact, she’d probably smack you upside the head just for thinking that way.

Chase: An injured man? She would never. You know, maybe it’s time for me to rethink my place as a chancellor, and… in the family business.

Nina: That would be my dearest wish come true.

Ashley: Well, what’s going on here?

Jack: Perfect timing, ashley. Please join me in welcoming kyle back to jabot as our new chief operating officer.

Ashley: Congratulations. So you’re not gunning after billy’s job anymore?

Kyle: So you heard about that?

Ashley: I did. Not your smartest move.

Jack: Ashley…

Kyle: No, no, no, she’s right. It uh, took a few smackdowns, but I finally got set straight.

Ashley: I hope so.

Kyle: Family is a priority and I’m determined to be a team player. Especially after whatever tucker’s next move is.

Ashley: Guess what? I just spoke with tucker at the club.

Diane: You mean an actual conversation with him?

Ashley: Yeah. A conversation. I walked in on a confrontation between him and devon.

Jack: What was devon confronting him about?

Ashley: Yeah. Apparently, devon found out that tucker invested in mamie’s company. And he’s convinced that tucker and mamie are going after chancellor now.

Jack: That man will do anything. And what– what is mamie doing being involved with a man like that? That’s not like her.

Ashley: Uh, think about it a second. You know how much mamie hates jill. So maybe she thinks it’s worth it to work with tucker, so he goes after jill. I don’t know.

Jack: Yeah. I suppose.

Ashley: Yeah. Well, anyway, tucker was really hurting after the fight. Of course, he takes no responsibility for anything, as usual. But I offered to help, I don’t know, mend things between him and his son.

Jack: He’s already made it very clear to you. He is not gonna fall for any effort to get closer to him.

Ashley: Yeah. It’s not about that, jack. Okay? This is about helping the man that my daughter is in love with.

Jack: You shouldn’t get involved. If all of that is true, devon needs to separate himself from his father.

Ashley: Jackie, come on. Stop, please. How is that your call?

Jack: It’s not my call. It’s not yours either. Look, I had this argument with billy. I– I was against it then. I’m against it now.

Ashley: Duly noted. Tucker is not my favorite person right now. Okay? But I do think that devon deserves to have a relationship with his father and I’ll do what I need to do to make that happen. That’s all.

Jack: No, you’re not helping. You’re just taking advantage.

Ashley: That’s your opinion. What do you need to hear from me? I promise you. I– I don’t have any intentions of reconnecting with tucker on any level. This is about a father and son.

Jack: Exploiting a parent-child relationship is wrong and you know that.

Ashley: I’m not exploiting anybody. I’m not forcing anyone to do anything. This should make sense to you because even though we hated what dina did to us and to our father. We all wish we had more time with her. Right?

Jack: Tucker is not dina. You are meddling and you should be walking away.

Ashley: Okay. Just hear me out. I know that tucker needs and wants devon’s love and approval more than anything. And devon needs and wants a relationship with his father. I don’t see anything wrong with nudging that in the right direction. And just listen. Full disclosure, if all this kumbaya means that tucker decides to back off of jabot. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? Wouldn’t it? It could actually happen because nobody can tap into tucker’s humanity like devon.

Jack: I still think we should go with my plan. Release the dirt we have on him and let it destroy the man.

Ashley: The stakes aren’t high enough with your plan. So if– if you publish that article and it doesn’t stop tucker, we’ve got nothing left, jack.

Diane: Jack, I’m sorry but I– I have to agree with ashley. I mean, right now it could just inflame tucker.

Kyle: Yeah. I think we should go with ashley’s plan. See if reconnecting with his son changes tucker’s course.

Jack: Well, it appears I’m outnumbered.

Ashley: Oh. So? Does that mean you’re gonna back off of releasing that article?

Jack: Yeah, we can sit on it a bit longer. At least we know we have it if we need it.

[ Phone ringing] Sorry, I have to take this. Excuse me.

[ Ashley sighs ] Hello?

Ashley: Okay. Well, I need to go too. Thanks. I’ll see you both later.

[ Door shuts ]

Chance: Voicemail. Hey, grandma, it’s chance. Uh, when you get a minute, I’d love to meet up with you and talk. Call me back.

Nina: Thank you. For taking the first step.

Chance: Yeah. Well, we’ll see what happens. Okay?

Nina: Oh, my goodness. A suit and tie? That’d be so cute. I can’t wait to see that every day.

Chance: No, no, no. Don’t get ahead of yourself. I’m gonna meet with her. I’m gonna get some information and try to understand what this means. Okay?

Nina: Look, you’re not gonna talk me out of being happy about this. Okay?

Chance: Wait, wait. What was that? You said every day?

Nina: Yeah, it’d be terrible for you, wouldn’t it?

Chance: Well, no, I think it’d be– it’d be kind of nice to have you around.

Nina: Well, I don’t know all my plans at the moment. But you’re not getting rid of me just yet.

Chance: Okay. I’ll take it.

Nina: Yeah. You talk a good game. But if I was around all the time, you’d get sick of me nagging.

Chance: Ah, yes. I definitely would. It doesn’t mean I don’t want you around here, though.

Nina: Oh, I love you so much, my son.

Chance: I love you.

Jill: I’m not sure about this. This is risky.

Devon: But you do think it could work though, right?

Jill: Well, there’s no guarantee and I can tell you it requires a level of trust that I’m not feeling right now.

Devon: No. I– I understand that and I know we would be putting ourselves on the line. But I really do think that this plan is the best way to get the information that we need.

Jill: So, what do you think, lily?

Lily: I mean, I agree with the risk factor…

Jill: But is it worth it?

Lily: Well, I mean, it might be the only chance we have to figure out what tucker is really up to.

Devon: Yeah. And the first step is to uncover the threat.

Lily: And then once we know that then we can stop him in his tracks.

Devon: Right.

Jill: Boy, would that be a relief.

Devon: And I don’t know about both of you, but I sure would love to be able to throw tucker’s lies back into his face.

Jill: Oh, are you kidding? I would enjoy every second of it.

Devon: Yeah. And let him know that our company is not a toy to be played with.

Jill: Yep.

[ Knock on door ]

Devon: Are we all in agreement?

Lily: Yeah. Yes.

Devon: Yeah?

Jill: Let’s do this.

Devon: Okay, let’s do it. Hi. Come in you, two.

Nate: I was surprised to get the invitation.

Mamie: Pleasantly surprised.

Devon: Well, we all have something very important to discuss with you.

Diane: How do you feel?

Kyle: It feels good. I think I made the right decision.

Diane: I’m glad you took my advice to come back to jabot. It’s a good strategy and it will be wonderful to have you there.

Kyle: Taking the C.O.O. Position is one thing. The next, may not be as easy. I’m worried I’m out of my league.

Diane: Well, don’t second guess yourself. I have complete faith in you.

Kyle: I know what I need to do now.

Diane: Yeah. You are going to be the one to save jabot from tucker. Not ashley, not billy, but you. And once you do, you will forever have hero status and everything that comes with it.

Kyle: Mhm. Dad’s done so much for me. More than I deserve. I can’t let him down.

Diane: Yeah. And when your father finds out what you did for this family, he will be so proud of you. I already am.

Kyle: I need to talk to you.

Ashley: Have you spoken with devon?

Abby: I have, yes. He was just here. Why?

Ashley: I walked in on what looked like a very intense confrontation between him and tucker.

Abby: Yeah, he came here afterwards. It’s bad, mom. Devon is very upset.

Ashley: Mhm. Do you know what the fight was about?

Abby: Oh, you know, the usual. Tucker only caring about himself.

Ashley: Well, I know for a fact that tucker cares very deeply for his son.

Abby: Oh, really? Well, not enough to not lie to his son and secretly try to go after his company.

Ashley: Does he have proof of that?

Abby: Yes, he does, mom. I’m not sure what it is, but he has proof.

Ashley: Do you think there’s any chance of them recovering from this?

Abby: Devon says he’s done. And honestly, after this latest revelation, I think their relationship might be severed forever.

Ashley: Okay. Uh, yeah, I know that you’ve worked really hard at including tucker when it comes to dominic. And, uh, you did that when you didn’t want to. So how do you feel about this situation?

>>Abby: I mean, it doesn’t really matter how I feel about it. It’s devon and I see that he’s hurting. I mean, every time he trusts his dad he lets him down.

Ashley: So, how do you feel about maybe trying to mend things for the two of them?

Abby: How?

Ashley: I don’t know. Well, you could start by talking to devon. Just say exactly what you said to me and I’ll try to support you in any way I can.

Abby: Mom, devon is a big boy. I cannot make these decisions for him. And god forbid, I push him into a relationship with his father and he gets hurt again. I would never be able to forgive myself.

Ashley: Okay, well, isn’t he hurting already? Maybe there’s something we can do to ease the pain.

Mamie: So what are we doing here? Can I presume that we are ready to finalize nate’s return to chancellor-winters?

Devon: No. Not quite. We first need you to be honest with us.

Mamie: Okay, about what?

Devon: About your real intentions. Because we all know that you and tucker have some sort of plan in the works.

Jill: A plan that involves ousting me.

Lily: And there’s no point in denying it. We know the truth.

Mamie: Tucker has made some investments in my company.

Jill: Oh, please. This is not just about funds. You and tucker are colluding to exercise your mutual goals.

Nate: Wait. So then have you just been using me? As some part of your overall plan?

Mamie: Not at all, baby. I’ve been telling you the truth. I’m just trying to get you back into the family.

Devon: Yeah. But you were willing to lie to all of us to make that happen.

Mamie: I no longer have any affiliation with your father. And I told him that to his face when I became aware of some of his many transgressions.

Jill: Why should we believe anything you say?

Mamie: You can trust me. My ultimate goal has always been to unite our family under one corporate umbrella. That has never changed.

Devon: Well, mamie, if that is the truth, then we’re gonna give you an opportunity to prove it.

Mamie: Okay. Then just tell me how.

Devon: You need to tell us what tucker’s real agenda is. ‘Cause I imagine you have an idea. And if you can do that, we can start to consider bringing nate back to chancellor-winters. But only if you are honest with us.

Audra: Kyle is reaching out. You were right.

Tucker: Reel him back in.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Relaxing music ]

Ridge: Thank you. Well, uh, I’m pretty sure I know why you called this meeting. Lack of funds for hope for the future and everything being filed into my dad’s line.

Zende: I’m happy for him, that’s great for granddad.

Ridge: Really? But you don’t look happy.

Zende: I am not thrilled about hope for the future being benched, but I understand the reasons.

Ridge: Okay.

Zende: What I don’t understand is why I’m being benched in favor of rj?

Rj: It’s cute how nervous you were last night.

Luna: Anyone would be. Meeting steffy forrester, I mean, the steffy forrester.

Rj: Oh, the– the steffy forrester.

Luna: No, I mean, she’s like my role model, a legend. Thankfully, a very friendly, down to earth one. She made me feel right at home.

Rj: Yeah, because she liked you. You’re very likable, you know?

Luna: You think?

Rj: Oh, yeah.

Luna: I hope so. I mean, I really wanted to make a good first impression.

Rj: You did. You made– you made a great first impression, I’m not gonna lie. She was impressed. But she’s not half as impressed with you as I am.

Sheila: Thank you so very much and we’ll see you again. Welcome to il giardino. My name is sheila.

Bill: Yeah, I know exactly what you are. This whole act you got going here ain’t fooling anyone.

Sheila: [ Laughs ] I– I don’t know whether to be surprised or impressed. A lot of people are boycotting since I came back to work, but not you, bill? You must love the pizza.

Bill: I’m not here to eat.

Sheila: I’d start you with a cocktail, but clearly, you’ve had a few.

Bill: I’m here to put you on notice. Stay away. You will stay away from us. Especially steffy and finn.

Rj: I don’t see why you’re so worried about steffy. Look, she’s– come on, she’s married to your cousin, so she has to like you. She’s obligated.

Luna: No, no, no, in-laws are historically problematic. Like, being finn’s cousin might have worked against me.

Rj: Okay. That’s fair. But when you walked in, you definitely had a secret advantage.

Luna: What?

Rj: Well, my sister took one look at how important you’ve become to me and that just sealed the deal right there.

Luna: You’ve become pretty important to me too.

Rj: I just had a great idea. Did you just watch me have a great idea? Because I have a great idea. I know how we can celebrate the success of last night’s dinner.

Luna: Oh, that sounds fun.How so?

Rj: By having lunch right now. Let’s go, come on. Oh, wait, sorry. Are you available?

Luna: I really want to, but rain check, okay?

Rj: Mm-hmm. I, um– I have plans to meet my mom today.

Sheila: Don’t you have companies to buy and sell? You know, crush the little people?

Bill: What do you think I’m doing here?

Sheila: And yet, I still stand. I am curious, though. Why the vested interest in my relationship with my son?

Bill: I couldn’t care less, quite frankly. Not that I want to see anybody suffer at your hands, but it’s my granddaughter I’m concerned about.

Sheila: Kelly?

Bill: Yeah, kelly. My son’s daughter. I don’t want her mixed up in whatever scheme you got cooking up in that twisted brain of yours.

Sheila: See, the only thing I am cooking up these days, pizza and masalas. And to be more exact, I’m delivering those. And in case you didn’t hear, I saved kelly’s life.

[ Bill scoffing ]

Bill: Oh, yeah, how convenient. You just happened to be there. Stalking your son and my granddaughter. You probably lured her into the ocean with some candy.

Sheila: Oh, my gosh. The gratitude is overwhelming.

Bill: I’ll have gratitude when you’re back in prison. You had something on that judge. You paid him off.

Sheila: Something you’d know a lot about, huh, bill? So, can I get you anything? I hear the meatballs are to die for.

Zende: It feels like I’m being forgotten.

Ridge: How do you even say that? You’re a very important part of the hope for the future team. I don’t know what else to tell you.

Zende: A line we’re not even posting on right now. And honestly, ridge, even when we are, I report to the lead designer, your son. When the opportunity to work with granddad came up, was I even considered or did it just automatically go to your other son? I’m talented. I’ve proven myself and yet, I’m passed over?

Ridge: It may seem that way right now, but listen, this industry is– is always–

Zende: I grew up in the industry too. With extremely successful and talented designers for parents. I am your sister’s son. I don’t know, ridge, maybe that’s the issue. I’m her son, not yours. It feels like you are willing to push aside every other member of this family as long as your kids get to shine.

Rj: Lunch with your mom? That’s great.

Luna: Thank you for being understanding. I– I promise I won’t be out too long.

Rj: What? No, no. Take your time. Seriously. It’s not like we clock in and out around here. No one’ll notice.

Luna: Are you sure?

Rj: Yeah, of course. No, you told me she’s not in town a lot, you’re excited to see her and you should spend as much time as you can with her. Honestly, I was lucky that I got to meet her. She’s– she was a sweetheart. She seems like someone cool to hang out with, too.

Luna: You want to know something?

Rj: What?

Luna: Ever since I was little, sleepovers were always at my house. And all of my friends wish that their moms were as chill as mine.

Rj: Sounds fun.

Luna: Yeah. I had a really fun childhood. I mean, would I have liked a little more structure? Maybe, but I’m not really complaining. I appreciate how free-spirited my mom is.

Rj: Complete opposite of your aunt.

Luna: Oh, shoot, I am so much later than I thought. I have to get going.

Rj: Go. Go, go, go. Just– just say hi for me.

Luna: Will do.

[ Both chuckling ] Luna nozawa, clocking out.

[ Both laughing ]

Ridge: No one’s doubting your talents, zende.

Zende: You’re just, uh, choosing not to tap into it? Seriously, why is rj working with granddad and not me?

Ridge: Dad is dying?

Zende: It’s insulting.

Ridge: How long does he have, do we know? How long does he have? Dying. Dying.

Zende: Rj literally has zero design experience. For you to pick him and not me–

Ridge: I didn’t pick him. My dad picked him. And everything– everything, the way it’s being handled, is the way my dad wants it.

Sheila: Okay, so you came to put me on notice. Message received. But you don’t need to come to harass me at my place of work, when I’m just trying to lead a normal, simple, good life.

Bill: You do understand that being a waitress isn’t going to cleanse your soul or make you wholesome?

Sheila: Why are you really here, dollar bill? Did you miss me?

Bill: Like food poisoning. How deacon could–

Sheila: Oh, wait, wait, wait, that’s it, that’s it. That’s why you’re here. You found out about my relationship with deacon and you wanted to see for yourself?

Bill: You actually believe you could have a long lasting relationship with deacon? For that matter, that any man could ever commit to you?

Sheila: Yeah. We’re taking it slow and we’re gonna see what happens. But things are going really well. And– and I’m happy. And that bothers you, doesn’t it? Especially since things didn’t work out with katie the way that you were hoping, from what I hear. But you know what? You should– you should use this as a positive moment, you know? A– look at it as a time where you can put yourself out there, because from everything you ever told me, you never ever had a problem doing that. So, maybe this is just a– a blessing in disguise.

Luna: Hi, mom.

Poppy: Hi.

Luna: Hi. Hi.

Poppy: How are you, sweetie?

Luna: I’m sorry I kept you waiting.

Poppy: Oh, you’re a hard working forrester intern. I understand. So, how’s it going?

Luna: Mom, I have literally never been happier.

Poppy: Hm. Because you’re working in the fashion industry or because of that handsome young man who also works there.

Zende: Granddad has been one of my biggest supporters from the moment I put pencil to paper years ago. I don’t buy for a second that he would choose to work with rj instead of me.

Ridge: Try not to let it get to you.

Zende: Are you sure you just didn’t convince him that your wayward son needs some direction? Hey, why not toss him a couture line?

Ridge: I didn’t pick rj. My dad did.

Rj: Hey, zende. He’s– he’s right. Granddad reached out to me to help him design.

Sheila: But deacon has taken a liking to me and I to him. He makes me feel worthy of a– of a fresh start and he’s helping me. He’s keeping me on the straight and narrow. Hello? Oh. I get it, of course. You’ve always had an eye for beautiful women. And you’re staring. You just can’t help yourself. So, I am going to let you enjoy the view because you have also pointed out so thoroughly that I have tables to tend to. But let me know if you need anything.

Bill: I need you to disappear, leave town and never come back. And stay the hell away from my family.

Poppy: So, how was dinner with finn?

Luna: It was awesome. It was so good to see my cousin again. And he and his wife were so welcoming.

Poppy: Good. You and finn always did have a special connection.

Luna: And oh, my god. Steffy is even more beautiful in person, it’s crazy.

Poppy: Were you nervous to meet her?

Luna: Oh, I was so nervous. Mom, I don’t think you quite understand how much of a superstar she is in this industry.

Poppy: Oh, no, I get it. I’ve seen her on the cover of those magazines you read.

Luna: No, but you know what the best part is? She is literally so nice. Like there’s nothing arrogant about her, even though she’s this huge fashion icon. I don’t know, I’ve just– I’ve been having a lot of fun getting to know the forrester family. I just– I really admire how loving and close everyone is.

Poppy: Unlike our family?

Luna: No, no, no. I don’t mean it like that. I mean, you’ve been such a great mom to me. Look how close we are. But, you know, I was– I was raised differently. Not in terms of like money, but in terms of people, like having a community. It’s always just been the two of us. And look, I don’t– I don’t want you to think that you were a bad mom, but… sometimes, when I look at rj, it like, makes me realize how lucky he’s been.

Rj: Hey, listen. Zende, I can understand why this seems a little bit strange.

Zende: Strange? Woo, there’s an understatement. Rj, this is beyond strange. It’s offensive. Not only is hope for the future being put on the back burner, which is fine, it happens, I’m a designer at this firm. You’re not. You’ve actually gone out of your way to avoid being a part of all this. So, for you to suddenly be in the spotlight? I– I’m sorry, guys. Am I missing something here?

Ridge: I’m sure my dad had his reasons for what he did and it’s all gonna become clear.

Zende: Clear. I think it’s pretty clear, ridge. The offspring of the mighty ridge forrester get whatever they want, and the rest of us, we got to fend for ourselves.

Ridge: “The rest of us?” What does that mean, exactly? You think this is what thomas wants? Hope for the future on the back burner? Probably not. We had a competition. I lost. This is the world we live in now. My dad is pushing his line and we’re gonna respect that. And we’re gonna support him. That means all of us. Even those who feel slighted.

Zende: This is not about me being slighted.

Ridge: No?

Zende: No. No, it’s not! I love granddad. I support him. He’s taught me everything I know. This is not about respecting him. But this decision to have rj by his side, rj, who has never designed a thing in his life? Who’s been more interested in putting up content and his likes and his followers than he’s ever been in the art of fashion? But let’s pass the torch down anyway. I mean, why should experience matter if the golden child is available? The anointed one. The only son of brooke and ridge forrester.

Poppy: I think the lasagna looks good.

Luna: Lasagna? I want more of like a pasta.

[ Indistinct chatter ]

Poppy: So, tell me more about last night.

Poppy: Ah, well, the food was delicious, and you might think that they have like, a live-in chef, right? But no, they order take out just like everyone else. Well, obviously, the best part was getting to see finn. I mean, it’s been such a long time, but that connection that you mentioned, it was definitely still there. As strong as ever. Yeah, it’s just– it’s really sad that aunt li did everything she could to keep us apart.

Poppy: It is. And I wish things could have been different. But my sister is who she is. She has a difficult personality. It drives people away. People who love her.

Bill: Uh, excuse me.

Poppy: Yes?

Bill: I couldn’t help but notice you from across the restaurant.

Poppy: That’s sweet, but I’m having lunch with my daughter.

Bill: Oh, no, no, no. I’m not, uh– you– you just look really familiar to me. Do we know each other?

Ridge: Hey, zende, you know this is not about me propping up my kids. It’s not a conspiracy.

>Zende: All right, yeah, it just happens that thomas is the lead designer of hope for the future, and rj gets plucked out of nowhere to partner up with grandad.

Ridge: What are you doing? This is us. We’re a family. It’s a family business.

Zende: It’s a family business that rj never wanted to be a part of. He was too wrapped up in his online presence. Being an influencer. Being influential. Getting his validation from his likes and his followers. Jet setting around the world. Isn’t that what you wanted?

Rj: Yeah, but then, now I– I want to do–

Zende: Do what? This? You just want to do this. You want to just come in here and be a fashion designer. Working with my granddad on his couture line, huh?

Rj: He’s my granddad too, zende.

Zende: Right, right. But you’re not being lost in the shuffle, I am. It is not my fault that my mother is no longer part of the family business. She’s not here to lobby for me. To stick up for me like your dad does for you. So, I gotta stick up for myself. And that is exactly what I intend to do.

Rj: Zende.

Ridge: Don’t let him get to you.

Rj: Dad, maybe it’s just time to tell him. Maybe it’s time to tell everybody.

Ridge: I don’t think so. I told steffy, then thomas, and I just, um– I don’t think it was right. Dad wants to play this his way. I gotta respect that.

Rj: I respect that too, but if zende’s gonna act like this–

Ridge: He’ll understand.

Rj: When? When is he gonna understand? When granddad’s already passed on? And then he’s gonna realize that this massive chip on his shoulder was completely misguided? That’s not fair him. That’s not fair at all.

Ridge: None of this is fair, son.

Rj: We shouldn’t be losing him. He has a lot to teach us. I’m not ready for this. I can’t do this, dad. I’m not ready to have my last conversation with him. I’m not– I’m not ready to– to say goodbye to him. I’m not ready for him to die. This isn’t–

Recap written by Suzanne

Zende and Ridge have a meeting. Zende isn’t thrilled about Hope For the Future getting budget cuts, due to Eric’s extra line. He’s even less thrilled that RJ, who had no design experience, worked on Eric’s line. Ridge tells him that was Eric’s call.

RJ and Luna talk about Steffy and how they had a great time visiting her and Finn last night. Luna leaves to have lunch with her mom.  RJ goes by Ridge’s office,  so he tells Zende that it’s true that Eric picked him. This doesn’t make Zende feel any better. He yells some more. Ridge yells back at him a little and then storms out. RJ thinks they should tell him about Eric, but Ridge is against it. He feels it was a mistake to tell Thomas and Steffy. RJ cries about how he’s not ready to lose his grandad, so he and Ridge embrace.
Bill goes to Il Giardino and gives Sheila a hard time, warning her not to come near his family. She tells him what she’s been telling everyone about how she’s changed, and they give each other grief.  Then she can tell that he’s distracted after Poppy arrives to meet Luna.  Poppy and Luna catch up and Bill keeps staring at them.  Later, Bill goes over to them and ask Poppy if he knows her because she looks very familiar.

Transcript provided by and proofread by Suzanne

Brooke: I do understand that you and Hope are enjoying each other’s company.

Thomas: Yeah, it’s– it is more than that, Brooke.

Brooke: Yeah, I don’t even know how you can say that. Her marriage did just end.

Thomas: Yes, it did and I am very sensitive to that.

Brooke: And if you were sensitive to that, you would give her some space.

Thomas: You know, if Hope wants space, she can tell me. And I’m just going to follow her lead on that.

Brooke: Well, just keep your expectations really low. I mean, she may be caught up in this whole thing right now, but deep down, she’s really mourning the loss of her marriage to Liam.

Liam: You are my wife. Of course, I’m always going to care about you, Hope.

Hope: And I’m always going to care about you, Liam, but there’s a line, so you don’t need to worry about me. I’m– I’m fine.

Liam: Sorry. I wish things had gone differently.

Hope: Well, they didn’t. And this is my life now without you. And you’re going to have to accept that.

Finn: Okay, okay, it’s your turn now. I’ve told enough embarrassing stories about my poor cousin.

Luna: No, I mean, did you really have to tell them about the carnival?

RJ: Well, I thought it was adorable. It was adorable.

Steffy: Like, clowns are scary. I mean, remember when I dressed up as one on Halloween and then you locked yourself in your room? [ Laughs ]

RJ: I was two years old, Steffy. You gave me nightmares for years, do you remember that part?

Finn: Well, you guys both have a lot in common, then.

Steffy: You two are really working well together. Helping our granddad with the line.

Luna: I mean, that was exhilarating. It was, like, a total crash course on learning the fashion business and one of the biggest highlights of my life.

RJ: She’s been crushing it. She did awesome, the whole thing.

Steffy: That’s what I’ve heard.

Steffy: I still can’t believe Dad let Granddad think he won the fashion challenge.

Finn: It’s the sweetest gesture.

Steffy: Sweetest thing ever.

Finn: And I respect Ridge enormously for doing that.

RJ: Me too.

Finn: Hey, RJ.

RJ: Yeah?

Finn: Why don’t you and I go for a swim in the ocean?

RJ: Right now? Yeah.

Finn: Yeah.

RJ: I’m super down. Always. Is that okay with you?

Luna: Absolutely. Go for it.

RJ: Sure?

Steffy: Luna and I will be fine. Give us a chance to get to know each other better.

Thomas: Look, it’s always painful when a family splits up.

Brooke: But it goes beyond that. And I don’t think you realize, Thomas, how much she really treasured her life with Liam.

Liam: Well, that same feeling that I had when I married you… it– it hasn’t gone away. It’s still– it’s still there.

Hope: I– I don’t know how you expect me to believe that, Liam.

Liam: I could have done more to show it, but… I’m never going to stop loving you and that’s just– that shouldn’t come as a surprise to you because I think that you’re never going to stop loving me, either. That’s what I think.

Luna: Finn and I were super close when I was little. He was always the protective older cousin.

Steffy: It’s good to have him in your corner.

Luna: Yeah, I mean, it’s been a while. I’m just glad that we’re getting reacquainted again.

Steffy: Well, Finn’s excited you’re here, and I can tell my baby brother is, too.

Finn: All right, we’re heading out.

Steffy: Hey, now. Too bad it’s dark out. Look at those abs. Look at those pecs, baby.

Finn: All for you, babe. See you in a bit, okay?

Steffy: Okay.

RJ: Hey, don’t grill her too much, okay? Just take it kind of easy on her, please.

Steffy: I’ll try.

RJ: Okay.

Steffy: Be careful.

Finn: Right, we will.

RJ: Come on, come on.

Luna: They’re crazy. I’m– I’m too afraid of sharks.

Steffy: Yeah, they– they are definitely crazy. But you should get out there at one point. RJ could teach you how to surf.

Luna: Okay, that I might be into.

Steffy: I can definitely tell you that you are into RJ.

Luna: Okay, well, yeah, I– I always knew he was in good shape, but, wow.

[ Both laughing ]

Steffy: Well, they’re two sweet guys. And got to say, they are easy on the eyes.

Luna: Yeah. Um, can I be honest with you about something, Steffy?

Thomas: Brooke, I mean, you should understand more than anyone, Hope doesn’t want to be with someone where his attention is divided, where she can be with someone who only wants her. I mean, you of all people should understand that.

Brooke: I agree. Hope deserves a man who is completely devoted to her.

Thomas: Just so long as it isn’t me.

Brooke: Look, I know that you’ve been working on yourself, Thomas, trying to make yourself a– a better person. I get it. And maybe Hope sees something that I don’t see. And I know she’s very attracted to you and having fun with this fling, but she’s made it very clear that she’s not in love with you and she may never be. Can you live with that?

Hope: I will always have a connection to you, Liam. We’ve been through so much together and our beautiful daughter–

Liam: Who Thomas tried to convince us was dead.

Hope: You know, you keep bringing that up.

Liam: Yeah, I keep bringing it up and I’m not going to stop bringing it up, and frankly– frankly, I’m appalled that you have.

Hope: I have not forgotten, Liam, but if I let the past rule me, I will never be able to live in the present. Thomas has earned my trust. He’s apologized, he’s taken accountability and not just with empty words, but with action.

Liam: I don’t get you giving that guy an ounce of slack, much less whatever this is.

Hope: All right. Okay, great. Fine. Awesome. Yeah, maybe I have a blind spot where Thomas is concerned. Wonderful. And if you really need to know, sure, we– we are taking things day by day.

Liam: What does that mean? You’re just like– no strings? You’re just having sex?

Hope: Yeah.

Liam: O– okay, so you’re just like, hooking up. See, that’s not you. That’s not who you are.

Hope: Liam, you don’t know me. I’m starting to think maybe you never did. Maybe you just loved the idea of me. But Thomas, he sees me. And I am able to put my wants, my needs, my desires first. And he, Thomas loves me for it.

Thomas: Okay, it’s getting late.

Brooke: Uh, Thomas, I just want to thank you. It’s important that we spoke.

Thomas: And, yeah, look, I understand that you may never believe in my relationship with Hope, but I think that she does.

Brooke: Okay, just don’t read too much into that because it is a phase.

Thomas: I’m not going to choose to believe that. I believe that there’s a future and I honestly believe that it’s possible Hope opens her heart fully to me.

[ Brooke sighing ]

Steffy: Of course, you can be honest with me, what is it? Is it about RJ?

Luna: No, it’s, um– it’s actually about you.

Steffy: Me?

Luna: Yeah, I– I don’t know if you could tell, but this dinner made me super anxious.

Steffy: I get it, you know. Meeting your boyfriend’s family for the first time is a little overwhelming.

Luna: Yeah, it is. But it’s not just because you’re RI’s sister. It’s because you’re Steffy Forrester. I mean, you’re a fashion icon. You’re larger than life. Um, but it’s not just the fame and the glamor. I mean, what RJ said about you is true. He told me what a compassionate, caring person you are and especially clear how much you care about Eric and your brothers and your parents. You guys are just so blessed to have such a strong, loving family.

Steffy: Thank you. That is super sweet. Yeah, we are– we’re very fortunate. We’re always there to support one another, especially when one person is struggling.

Luna: Yeah, I mean, that’s what I experienced with RJ. That same sense of loyalty. I mean, he’s a wonderful guy. How could I not fall for him?

Steffy: Well, that’s why I invited you over. I can definitely see that the feelings are mutual. And I know it’s still new. You guys are still trying to figure each other out, but I like this whole vibe.

Luna: Yeah, me too.

Finn: Hey.

RJ: Hey. It’s incredible out there. What’s going on? What were you two talking about?

Steffy: Wouldn’t you like to know?

[ Both chuckling ]

Hope: We ended our relationship, Liam. You don’t get to dictate what you think my life should look like.

Liam: I’m not– I’m not– I’m not dictating. I’m not– I’m not dictating. I’m not shaming, I’m just– I’m– I’m concerned about some of the choices you’re making, that’s all.

Hope: Look, I’m sure that this is a lot for you to take in right now. I mean, me being dressed in lingerie for another man.

Liam: It’s not just any other man. Not just any other man.

Hope: Liam, you threw us away! Thomas adores me. And he loves me and only me.

Liam: So did– so did I.

Hope: No, you didn’t. Liam, I wanted your full heart. That’s all I wanted. But for years, I mean– I’m not sure if you will understand this concept, but, um, just because you aren’t sleeping with Steffy doesn’t mean that you aren’t keeping her on the back burner. It doesn’t mean that you’re not withholding a piece of your heart for her. It doesn’t mean that you’re not just keeping the door open just a little bit for the possibility of Steffy. So, no, I never got all your heart.

Liam: I begged you. I begged you not to– not to go back to work with him. I begged you not to turn to him and– and– and then– then there you were. You were kissing him in Rome.

Hope: You still ran to Steffy.

[ All chuckling ]

Finn: No, Luna, seriously, I can’t tell you how cool this is for me.

Luna: I mean, this was such a blast, you guys. Thank you so much for inviting me.

Finn: And look, I know you’ve been having some trouble with my mom.

Steffy: What about Li?

Finn: I– I’ll– I’ll fill you in later. Look, whatever beef between Aunt Poppy and my mom, I mean, that’s between them. It shouldn’t affect our relationship. I always want you to feel welcome here.

Luna: Thank you, Finn, that means the world to me. I just– I wish our moms could get along.

Finn: Yeah.

Liam: Hope, I’m desperate here to– to get through to you, to stop you from wanting to be with Thomas.

Hope: Liam.

Liam: You said yourself, no strings attached, right? And God knows, I mean, how could there be right? Given everything that he’s put us through. I mean, is this– really? This is like– this is how you want to spend your time?

Hope: I don’t know what to tell you, Liam. I don’t– I don’t know how to answer that. I– I don’t know what the future will bring. I just know that I am trying to be present, and I am open to anything.

Liam: Not anything. It’s– okay, oh. Okay, what– so, what? You like– you might want another baby now or…

Hope: I might.

Liam: With Thomas?

Hope: Certainly not with you.

Liam: I mean, are you– are you even using birth control?

Hope: Oh, my God, Liam, that is none of your business! Liam, I don’t know how to make this make sense to you. Thomas sees me! And only me! And I want that! Liam, I– I love you and I know you mean well and I don’t know if I’m making the right or wrong decision. I don’t have the answers. I just know what I want.

Liam: Thomas.

Hope: Yes. Thomas makes me happy. Liam, and I–

Liam: Oh, great. That’s– that’s great.

Thomas: Liam. What are you doing here?

Liam: I have a child who lives here.

Thomas: Yeah, the kids are over at Katie’s. You okay?

Liam: Are you– what kind of question is that? I’m sorry, can we not– like, can we just– can we stop this? Can we end this now? Can we end it?

Hope: Liam. I know you loved me. All those years. But, Liam… as much as it pains me to say this… this is not your home anymore. So, yes, we will parent Beth together, but the man in my life now… is Thomas. A man who loves me with all of his heart. And I love him for that.

Thomas: You said that I love you with all of my heart.

Hope: It’s because you do.

Thomas: And you said that you love me for that.

Hope: I suppose I did.

Summer: Wow.

Daniel: Mm-hmm.

Summer: Okay. What are we calling this style? Bachelor pad chic? I mean, I don’t see an air mattress or a foosball table, but I actually think that you have room for one over here.

Daniel: Don’t worry, foosball table’s coming. Beer pong table is gonna be over here along with the kegerator.

Summer: Very swanky. But I actually like that lamp. I mean, if it was in a different place, I would like it.

Daniel: Yeah, my designer has great taste.

Summer: Lily?

Daniel: No, I hired someone. Sally spectra.

Summer: Nice.

Daniel: I know. Look, she just launched a new design firm. Lily suggested that I call her.

Summer: Yeah, because why would you want to consult with your sibling who’s in the design industry?

Daniel: I just figured that you know, you’d be busy running a big fashion company.

Summer: Oh, stop. You thought that I would be pushy and decorate how I wanted, not how you wanted.

Daniel: No, that’s not it.

Summer: Eh?

Daniel: Yes, maybe that was it.

Summer: For your coffee table.

Daniel: Thank you. Oh, this is really cool. Thank you.

Summer: Yeah.

Daniel: So, um, I heard chance got shot.

Summer: Yeah, it’s pretty awful.

Chance: How is he? Have you heard?

Sharon: Okay, so tell me! What’s the latest? How is aria doing with her hearing aids?

Tessa: Sharon, you saw her yesterday.

Sharon: But she’s a baby. She’s going to make changes and progress on a daily basis and I want to hear all the details. So, how is she adapting to them?

Mariah: Uh, well, I– I can say the kid likes what she likes and she knows what she doesn’t like. We’ve used all of the tips that dr. George suggested.

Tessa: And aria is able to handle the hearing aids for about an hour, but after that, no way.

Mariah: No.

Sharon: Okay, but still, an hour, that’s amazing.

Mariah: Yeah. And to see her little face, her reactions. I mean, it’s obvious she can hear us, which is great.

Tessa: Oh, we read her a bedtime story last night. Mariah was doing all these different voices.

Mariah: And just smiling and giggling and laughing. I’m highly entertaining, clearly.

Sharon: And you didn’t video chat me? Okay. I see how it is.

Mariah: Well, uh, actually we’ll do that later because right now, you have a visitor.

Lily: Thank you.

Devon: You’re welcome.

Jill: Did nate tell you why he wanted us to meet?

Lily: No, he just texted me and devon seeing if we could be here and if you would meet us here as well.

Jill: Damn right. I can’t wait to hear about this.

[ Knocking on door ]

Devon: I will get it. Hey.

Claire: Almost time for a new one. You’ve had a lot already, but… I need you nice and calm until everyone arrives. The big family reunion.

Jill: What is she doing here? What’s going on?

Mamie: Calm down, jill. I’m here because nate wants me here.

Nate: I asked aunt mamie to come along as family for moral support.

Mamie: Now, this is your business. I’m not saying another word.

Jill: No, you won’T. We do have something we have to discuss though, mamie. Now is not the time nor the place though.

Mamie: Well, I’m looking forward to hearing whatever’s on your mind, jill.

Lily: So, nate, what did you want to talk to us about?

Nate: Yes. Um, lily, devon, I’m here because I’m hoping we can take a step closer towards repairing our relationship. Make amends. And if you’ll have me, I would like to return to chancellor-winters.

Summer: Uh, I saw chance in the hospital.

Daniel: Really?

Summer: Yeah, we’re friends. Um, the bullet went through his upper chest, near his shoulder area, so it wasn’t as bad as it could have been.

Daniel: Lucky guy, I guess. I mean, if you can call someone who’s been shot, lucky.

Summer: Yeah, and somebody that wasn’t supposed to be in the field at all. But, uh, yeah, he’s supposed to be getting out of the hospital today, so.

Daniel: Hm. And have things changed since the last time we talked about you and chance?

Summer: There is no me and chance, daniel.

Daniel: Right. But you said–

Summer: That I had some feelings. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know what I said.

Daniel: Well, I just thought maybe things had moved on from there.

Summer: No. Nothing has changed. Chance is still with sharon and I’m not gonna get in the middle of it.

Daniel: Come on. They haven’t been together for that long. It can’t be that serious, right?

Summer: What are you suggesting? That I– I try to break them up?

Daniel: I’m merely suggesting that maybe chance has feelings for you too. Maybe this thing with sharon has run its course.

Summer: You know, you sound like mom, right? Trying to play matchmaker.

Daniel: Wow. Okay. It was just a question.

Summer: Look, chance just sees me as a friend. So, it’s kind of pointless to hope for more.

Sharon: You’re up and around and you’re here. Should you be? Is this allowed? Do you wanna sit down?

Chance: I look all right, right?

Sharon: You look wonderful.

Mariah: Chance, we are super glad that it wasn’t anything more serious.

Sharon: I want to hug you, but I don’t want to hurt you.

Chance: No. Are you kidding me? Come here. Get in here.

Sharon: What did the doctor say? How long is is the recovery gonna take?

Tessa: How long do you have to wear that sling? I mean, maybe we could get you one that’s more stylish.

Chance: What’s wrong with this one?

Mariah: What about the person that shot you? What happens to him?

Chance: Well–

Nina: A text? I get a text to meet you here. What is wrong with you? Why didn’t you let me pick you up from the hospital?

Chance: Ooh, I felt this coming. I’m sorry. I just– I didn’t want you to worry.

Nina: Oh, come on, I’m your mother. I’m always gonna worry about you. Besides, you give me no choice. All of the times I wanted to come to your side and couldn’T. And now I’m here in town and I get a text?

Mariah: You’re in trouble.

Tessa: This might be worse than a bullet.

Chance: Well, you know what? The chief of police can handle checking out of the hospital on his own, okay?

Nina: No, no. You’re my son, not chief of police. Hi, my name is damion clark. If you have both medicare and medicaid, i have some really encouraging news that you’ll definitely want to hear.

Nina: He’s questioning whether it’s time for a career change.

Chance: Questioning. That’s all. I’m not making any decisions.

Nina: Chance, you gotta trust your gut, you know? If you feel it’s time to go, then it’s time to go. You’ve spent so many years serving the public in so many ways. Just, when is it enough?

[ Chance chuckling ]

Chance: Yeah. It’s on my mind. Don’t worry. There’s just a lot to consider. And you know what? I would honestly like sharon’s opinion on this.

Daniel: You know, that was a low blow comparing me to mom.

Summer: It stings. I know. Okay, enough about me and my love life. Let’s talk about you and your love life.

Daniel: Oh, no. No, thank you.

Summer: Oh, you don’t want to do that?

Daniel: Uh-uh.

Summer: Is there a reason?

[ Knocking on door ]

Daniel: That sounds like a pretty good reason. Hey.

Lucy: Hi, dad.

Daniel: Oh, luce and, uh, friend. Cool. Come on in. Yeah.

Heather: Hi.

Daniel: Hi. Good, good.

Lucy: Summer, hi.

Summer: Hi.

Lucy: It’s so good to see you.

Summer: Good to see you.

Lucy: Dad, you have furniture?

Daniel: I have some, yes. More is coming.

Lucy: What about my bedroom?

Daniel: Uh, your mattress should be here in a couple of days, I believe. Um, you know, I’m just gonna go ahead and ask. What’s with the pineapple?

Lucy: Oh, right. Um, happy housewarming.

Heather: On the way over here, lucy asked if we should bring you some kind of gift. So, I stopped at the grocery store to pick up this and uh, lucy insisted that she bring you a pineapple as well.

Daniel: Oh…

Lucy: You see pineapples all over savannah. Remember, dad? They mean welcome and hospitality. So, yeah.

Daniel: Normally, you see them on the front door or the stair railing, but hey, one you can eat. It’s great.

Summer: So much better.

Daniel: So much better. You know what? I love it. Thank you.

Lucy: You’re welcome.

Heather: In addition to welcoming you with alcohol and fruit, I wanted to share some good news.

Daniel: Okay?

Heather: I have an interview this afternoon at chancellor-winters for a position on their legal team.

Lucy: Isn’t that great, dad?

Daniel: It’s fantastic.

Heather: Thank you so much, daniel for, you know, making it happen.

Daniel: I think you should probably be thanking lily. Look, I hope that this all works out for you. I don’t know what I’m saying. Of course, it’s gonna work out. I mean, you’re gonna crush that interview.

Devon: Okay. So, you wanna come back to chancellor-winters?

Nate: I do.

Lily: Well, I mean, it’s not surprising. Aunt mamie’s been pushing for it.

Devon: All you’ve been talking about the last few months is how happy you are at newman and how much they respect you and how great of a boss victoria is. So, what’s changed?

Nate: Uh, I’m no longer at newman.

Devon: Did you blow things up with them like you did with us?

Nate: It depends on who you ask.

Lily: What does that mean?

Nate: Well, you all know victor retook the ceo seat.

Devon: Yeah, and demoted victoria.

Nate: Yep. So, he stepped in, made some changes. Uh, put nikki in charge of newman media, appointed adam as my assistant.

Jill: Oh, that man does love a good power play, doesn’t he?

Nate: Yep. Then he proceeded to lay a trap for his children and me. Because he suspected someone was going to betray him.

Jill: Oh, victor, of course you did.

Devon: What exactly did he do?

Nate: He pretended to be ill. Faked confusion, memory loss. He was trying to see who might take advantage of his mental decline.

Lily: That’s horrible. He let his children think that he was dying like ashland locke did with victoria?

Nate: Well, not dying. He just wanted them to think he lost his grip on reality.

Lily: How is that any better?

Jill: Oh, my god. But that is such a victor newman move if I ever heard one.

Lily: Okay. So, sorry. What does it have to do with you leaving the company?

Devon: Yeah. Did you figure out what he was doing and then call him out?

Nate: No. Just the opposite. I fell for the charade. I tried to protect the man. Get him the help. And it blew up in my face.

Claire: I’m not really surprised you tried to escape. You love to talk about how strong you are. How you can handle anything. This must be so strange for you. To be so vulnerable, not in charge of anything. You must have so many questions. Aunt jordan will explain everything. Once everyone’s here. If I tried to tell you, I’m afraid I’d get too emotional. I’m usually good at keeping everything inside, but this… this is too big. Too important. You could say I’ve been waiting for this thanksgiving my whole life. All right. Time to go set things in motion. Sweet dreams, nikki. Enjoy them while you can.

Nate: I thought I would discreetly get victor the treatment he needed. Take him to an out-of-the-way place where there’d be no chance of media leaks.

Jill: Like a facility or a clinic or something?

Nate: Yes. Yes. And it was a good plan. But victor saw it as me trying to get him out of the way so victoria and I could take control.

Devon: And that’s not what you were trying to do?

Nate: No. Not at all. I was concerned about the man and I wanted him to get proper treatment. But victor was hell-bent on finding a traitor. So he decided that’s what I was.

Jill: Oh, not you. You would never turn on anyone for your own advancement.

Nate: I’ve owned that in the past, jill, and i wouldn’t do that this time. Not with a man’s well-being at stake.

Devon: So, there was no part of you that thought that this was a good opportunity maybe to get victoria back to the top spot?

Nate: My only objective was to protect victor’s health and well-being. My plan accomplished both.

Devon: Okay. But why would victor fire you if he didn’t have any proof of what he thought you were doing?

Nate: I made arrangements for him to be placed in a facility. I set it up proactively so that things can move smoothly and quickly.

Devon: So, you committed him without his consent?

Nate: It was to assure he’d have a place set if needed. That is all. The one who was gunning to take advantage of victor’s weakness was adam.

Devon: And there’s proof of that?

Nate: Adam himself is the proof.

Lily: But victor didn’t see it?

Nate: Adam is playing the redeemed black sheep. So, victor feels the need to believe his son is sincere. Adam is family, I’m not.

Lily: So basically, now that you’re out of a job, you want us to forgive you and welcome you back to chancellor-winters.

Mamie: Welcome him back into the family, where he belongs.

Summer: So, I need to take off.

Heather: Oh, uh, summer, I hope you’re not leaving because of us. Because if– if you and daniel were in the middle of something, we can go.

Summer: No. No, please. You two stay. I gotta go pick up food and get back to work anyway. Lucy, so good to see you. I hope that walnut grove treats you well. Heather, welcome home. And you, invite me over when sally’s done with this place. I kind of want to see what she comes up with.

Daniel: Yeah, of course.

Lucy: Well, I am gonna go see my room. I was thinking of a mural wall.

Daniel: Mural wall? Hey, luce. Hey, luce. What kind of mural? Hey, what kind of mural are you thinking? Cool. Awesome. What?

Heather: Well, summer seems very curious about, uh, our dynamic.

Mariah: Well, we are gonna let you guys talk. It was good to see you, mom, and you, nina. Chance, we’re so happy that you’re out of the hospital, on the mend.

Tessa: I second all of that.

Sharon: Well, I’m gonna come by later so I can hang out with aria.

Mariah: Uh, yeah. We’ll put the hearing aids in for your visit. It’ll be great.

Tessa: Oh, she’s gonna love hearing her grandma’s voice.

Mariah: Bye, you guys.

Tessa: Bye.

Sharon: Bye.

Chance: Well, not to put too fine of a point on it, but I am starving.

Nina: I’m sorry, when are you not starving? The appetite on this one. Since he was a kid.

Chance: I barely got to eat anything in the hospital. So, why don’t I take my two favorite ladies to breakfast?

Jill: Mamie, dear. You did promise that you wouldn’t intrude on our discussion.

Mamie: No. What I said was that I would not intrude on any business discussion. This is much more than that.

Jill: Is it?

Mamie: Yes. This is about the cousins, lily, devon and nate taking a giant step towards reconciliation. And this is the very thing that my whole journey has been about.

Jill: Nate, why should we bring you back to chancellor-winters? I’m having a very hard time buying you as a team player. I mean, you just keep bouncing back between companies, pissing everybody off as you go.

Nate: Well, jill, um, I learned a lot since my departure from chancellor-winters. I’m past the need to prove myself at every turn, no matter the cost. I have a new appreciation for the value of collaboration. I’m better at knowing when to speak up and when to listen. I’ve also learned that my way or the highway isn’t gonna get me very far. I’m more flexible than I used to be. Point is, I’ve learned a lot from my wins, my losses, my highs, my lows, and more importantly, the meaning of family. I’m ready to be the best man for the job. And a proper cousin to you two, my family.

Abby: Chance. Hey, I had no idea that you were out of the hospital. That must mean that you’re doing well, right?

Chance: I’m doing better. Thank you. And thanks for coming by the hospital. I was a little groggy when you did, but I remember you being there. That’s about it.

Abby: Don’t worry about it. I’m just so thankful that you’re okay. And whenever you’re ready to see dominic, we will set up a visit.

Chance: I would love that. Thank you. Thank you.

Abby: Well, um, breakfast is on me.

Nina: Oh. Hey, abby, can you take a break for a few minutes and join us?

Abby: Um, sure. Okay.

Nina: So, I’m just curious. As dom’s mother, how would you feel if chance quit law enforcement? Just chose a totally different career?

Chance: Mom, mom, mom, mom, please. Don’t put her on the spot, please.

Nina: Just– just curious.

Abby: It’s fine. Um, when chance and I were married, I was constantly living in fear that something bad was going to happen to him. And then, something bad did happen. Spain. We know all about that. So, um, just because we’re not together anymore doesn’t mean that I stopped worrying about chance. I still care about you. And dominic thinks the world of you and someday, he’s gonna worry about you too. Here we are, we are sitting here talking about chance being shot at work, again. So, if you’re talking about walking away from the force, I’m all for it.

Nikki: Mm. As someone living with type 2 diabetes,

[ Nikki exhaling ]

Nikki: I can’t stay here. I have to find my phone. And victor. I have to call victor.

[ Nikki panting ]

Daniel: Our dynamic? We have a dynamic?

Heather: Well, come on, daniel. I saw the look your sister gave you and she sent a few my way as well. What’s, uh, what’s going on?

Daniel: Summer, you know, she’s just worried that you moving back to town, it’s gonna dredge up my old demons. I’m gonna be reminded of my spiral and I’m gonna spiral again.

Heather: She thinks it’s my fault?

Daniel: No. No, she is well aware that it was my fault. But, you know, she also knows how ashamed I was of the place that I got to when things got so dark for me. And come on, you must have thought about this stuff too. It must have crossed your mind.

Heather: No. It hasn’t, daniel. I know you’re in a better headspace now. I know you’re not going to hurt me and most importantly, lucy, like before. If I didn’t believe that, I wouldn’t have moved back here.

Daniel: Well, thank you for the support. And for the vote of confidence.

Heather: Daniel, I like who you are now. Very, very much. I mean, you have to know that, don’t you?

Abby: I mean, chance, if you did decide to walk away from the force, what would you do instead? Would you go back to security consulting or private detective?

Chance: Mm… professional baseball player, maybe? No? No? No, honestly, I’ve given zero thought to it because I don’t think I’m done being chief just yet.

Sharon: It’s a big decision, chance, which we all respect.

Chance: Thank you, sharon.

Nina: You know, maybe you should consider the corporate world. What if, you know, big business was your true calling?

Chance: Where did that come from?

Nina: Well, you– you’re a chancellor, son. I mean, big business would be a natural field for you. Don’t you think?

Summer: Chance, you’re out of the hospital. How are you feeling?

Chance: Hey, not too bad. I tell you, this thing is getting me a lot of sympathy.

Summer: Well, you deserve it.

Chance: Oh.

Nate: I’ve kept up with what’s happening at chancellor-winters. I read all the business press. Uh, so I’m up to speed on what’s been accomplished. I think I can be of use in a number of areas. And like aunt mamie said, I want to feel like I’m part of the family again.

Lily: Well, those are two separate things. So, do you want to be welcome back into the family or do you want a job now that you’re unemployed?

Nate: Lily, I miss you. And you too, devon. Look, our estrangement has gone on too long. I– I hate that we’re not as close as we used to be.

Mamie: So do I.

Nate: And so does my mom. I wanna make her proud. And malcolm and my dad and dru and neil. I know we can get there. Look, neil and malcolm always found a way back from their issues. And lily, you know, dru and my mom clashed plenty, but they always made up.

Jill: Okay. Nate, I really appreciate you putting yourself on the line like you did. That wasn’t easy and I do believe you were sincere when you said that you regretted betraying us in the past. But now, devon and lily and I have to discuss whether we want you back and lily, you know, dru and my mom clashed plenty, but they always made up.

Jill: Okay. Nate, I really appreciate you putting yourself on the line like you did. That wasn’t easy and I do believe you were sincere when you said that you regretted betraying us in the past. But now, devon and lily and I have to discuss whether we want you back at chancellor-winters.

Lily: Yeah, we’ll talk about it.

Devon: And no promises.

Nate: Thank you for listening. Aunt mamie.

Mamie: Oh, and jill, I do look forward to us having a discussion about our issues.

Jill: Oh, I do too, mamie. Don’t you worry.

Devon: I’ll walk you two out. See you.

Jill: Well. Hm.

Lily: Uh, I don’t know. I mean, he seemed sincere.

Jill: Mm-hmm.

Lily: And honest and, I mean, I know that we all believe in second chances. I know I wouldn’t be here without them.

Jill: Yep.

Devon: Yeah. But let’s, like, take a second and really think about this. ‘Cause I don’t think that he’d care at all about chancellor-winters if he hadn’t gotten fired. And this is now what? Two strikes on him in the corporate world? One from us, one from newman? And I think I’d like to learn a little more about that victor story before we just go ahead and make a decision.

Lily: No. Yeah, you’re right. I mean, he could be lying to us.

Jill: I don’t think he was lying. I don’t think he was making that whole thing up. It sounds too much like victor newman. And he knows how easy it would be for us to check it out. You would just say something to abby and she would talk to her siblings.

Devon: Sure. Yeah. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that his intentions weren’t self-serving. Or at least serving victoria.

Lily: Jill, what do you think about nate coming back?

Jill: Would it have been my first choice? No. He crossed a hell of a line trying to sell us out. But I do agree with you. I think he was being sincere. So, yeah, I might be persuaded to give it a try if nate is being straight with us because, whoa, we’re gonna need all the support we can get right now.

Devon: What does that mean, jill?

Summer: Thank you.

Abby: Summer. Hey. Um, I think we need to talk.

Summer: Yeah. What about?

Abby: What’s going on with you and chance?

Summer: I don’t– I don’t know what you’re talking about. Oh, my god. I guess it really is that obvious, huh?

Lily: I know what jill is talking about.

Devon: Okay. Does anybody want to let me know what jill’s talking about?

Lily: I was gonna tell you today. I just– I know that you’ve been really trying to work things out with tucker.

Devon: Okay. And?

Lily: There’s evidence that tucker is involved with mamie’s investment in chancellor-winters.

Devon: I know that’s what we thought.

Lily: No, we have the proof. I’ve seen it. So not only does mamie have a vested interest in chancellor-winters, but so does tucker.

Jill: And that interest most likely involves getting rid of me.

Devon: And what’s this evidence that you found?

Lily: Tucker has been making investments with mamie’s firm, L.B.B. And it’s not a coincidence. I mean, they are colluding somehow.

Mamie: Oh, I’m so proud of you, nathan jr. You handled everything just right today. Your cousins would be foolish not to have you back into the family business.

Nate: Thank you for the vote of confidence, aunt mamie. But I’m not so sure if that’s gonna happen. I mean, sure we’ve taken steps in the right direction, but it’s obvious devon needs more time or more convincing to forgive me. If he ever does. And that whole victor fiasco surely didn’t help.

Mamie: Well, I think he’ll get there. And if he doesn’t, you just leave him to me. I think I can get him across the finish line.

Nina: Well, thank you, dear, for breakfast. I have to, um, jump on a call with my agent, but do you want me to drop you at your apartment so you can get some rest?

Chance: Uh, you know what? I think I’m gonna stick around here for a while. If that’s okay with you.

Sharon: I’ll suffer through.

Nina: Okay, good. I’ll see you.

Chance: See you.

Nina: I love you, sweetheart.

Chance: I love you more.

Nina: Bye, sharon.

Sharon: Bye.

Chance: Hi.

Sharon: Hi.

Chance: I missed you.

Sharon: I missed you too. So, now that it’s just the two of us, how do you really feel about possibly leaving the force and doing something else?

Chance: We talked about this before.

Sharon: Yeah. And you said that as frustrating as it can be sometimes, especially with folks who believe that the law doesn’t apply to them and as dangerous as it can get on occasion, you liked helping people and keeping them safe.

Chance: Yeah. And you know what? I felt really good about being chief. I hate the idea of leaving my guys in the lurch, you know? But hey, I guess getting shot is a pretty good reason to rethink your life.

Sharon: Well, whatever you decide is fine by me. I hope you know that. I just don’t want you to feel pressured into making a decision.

Chance: Thank you. Really. No, I promise, I’m gonna do what’s best for me.

[ Nikki groaning ]

Nikki: Oh, I feel so weak and light-headed. Like I’ve been…

[ Nikki inhaling ] Oh, my god. No. No. No.

[ Nikki panting ] No.

Jordan: Don’t get soft on me now, claire.

Claire: Aunt jordan.

Jordan: We have waited so long and we’re so very, very close.

Narrator: Next week on the young and the restless…

Jill: Come to work with me at chancellor-winters. Honey, I will teach you the ropes of the business world.

Abby: Well, it is so good to see all of you. Michael, gloria, I’m glad that you’re home and I’m glad that you kept her out of prison.

Nikki: Oh, god. What have I done?

Transcript provided by and proofread by Suzanne

Brooke: Here you go, sweetheart.

Hope: Thank you, mom. I knew you’d have more candles up at the house.

Brooke: Is this why you’re having Katie watch the kids?

Hope: Uh, yes. And I appreciate all the help I can get.

Brooke: All right. Well, I see what’s going on here. Would you like me to bring you some lingerie too?

Hope: Mom!

Brooke: Hope, come on. You know how I feel about your relationship with Thomas.

Luna: I know I shouldn’t be nervous, but I am.

RJ: You’re nerv– why are you nervous? It’s just my sister and your cousin. It’s just family.

Luna: No, Finn’s family. But Steffy’s the CEO of Forrester Creations and she’s a world renowned fashion icon. I just, I don’t know. I just, I really wanna make a good impression.

Finn: I’m– I’m so sorry.

Steffy: He’s– I just can’t believe it.

Finn: Is there anything I can do?

Steffy: My grandfather’s dying. His condition is so hopeless that he doesn’t want anyone to know about it, and I’m just supposed to just pretend like everything is normal when all I wanna do is just grab him and never let go.

Finn: Let’s reschedule tonight.

Steffy: No, no. I don’t wanna do that. We already sent the kids off with my mom. And I am looking forward to meeting the woman who is spending so much time with my little brother.

Hope: Uh, Mom, I think it’s pretty obvious that Thomas and I won’t be looking at fabric swatches tonight.

Brooke: Hope, please just hear me out. I understand that you wanna try to move on with your life and maybe have a little fun, especially after what happened today, but why does it have to be with Thomas?

Hope: Mom, you know why. We have a bond. We know each other. We trust each other. And I don’t have to beg for his undivided attention.

Brooke: Honey, that attention was unwanted at one time, remember? And very obsessive.

Hope: Okay, well, it’s not anymore. And Thomas is going to be here soon, so I should finish getting ready. So please, Mom, don’t worry. I got it under control. Everything is fine, okay? Everything is fine.

[ Brooke sighing ]

Luna: You think I’m being ridiculous.

RJ: No, I don’t think you’re being ridiculous. You’re right. Steffy’s a big deal in the fashion world. But hey, come on. One day, you could be too.

Luna: Okay.

RJ: What? What are you laughing at? No, I’m serious. Luna, come on. Look at you. You have drive. You have passion. You were able to handle all of the major players at that fashion show perfectly. My granddad already loves you. I mean, come on. I could go on. I hear– I hear, it’s a rumor, that, you know, the newest designer at Forrester is actually really taking a Liking to you.

Luna: Oh, yeah?

RJ: Yeah. Yeah, it’s a rumor, you know. Luna, I think his big sister is gonna realize just how beautiful and charming you are, just like he does.

Finn: Wild my cousin’s working at Forrester.

Steffy: You didn’t know Luna was into fashion?

Finn: Well, anyone who’s ever met her knows that. It’s just quite the coincidence.

Steffy: Well, she’s been good luck for us. Everybody at Forrester raves about her. And it seems like, uh, RJ is her biggest fan.

Finn: Well, I’m pretty sure you’ll be a fan, too, after tonight.

Steffy: I really hope so. Because RJ is such a sweet guy and he deserves a special woman.

Finn: That’s what my mom always said about me. Look how that turned out.

[ Knock on door ]

Hope: Thomas, you’re early.

Finn: Hey, what’s up?

RJ: Hi. Good to see you.

Finn: Come on in.

Luna: Hi.

RJ: For you, for the evening.

Finn: Oh, wow. Thank you. Oh, this is– this is great. I thought you were more of a beer guy.

RJ: Yeah, well, you know, special occasion. I thought– hey!

Steffy: Hi.

RJ: What’s up? Good to see you.

Steffy: Luna, so wonderful to meet you.

Luna: Hi. This is– I’ve– it’s– it’s wonderful to meet you, too. [ Chuckles ]

Steffy: Well, make yourself at home. We have charcuterie. We have some drinks. Come on in.

Finn: Yeah. Yeah, guys, come– come in.

RJ: Oh, this looks good.

Finn: Luna, like, how are you Liking L.A.?

Luna: I mean, I still can’t believe that I’m actually here. I mean, I’m driving past like, so many famous locations like movie studios and Beverly Hills. It’s pretty crazy.

Finn: Yeah. I– I was just saying how wild it is. I mean, my cousin is here living in L.A. And she’s working at Forrester Creations.

Luna: Yeah, it’s surreal. I mean, so much has happened in such a short amount of time.

RJ: Yeah. And she’s– she’s been a huge help too as well with Granddad’s collection. I mean, we– we could not have done it without her. She was helping getting all the materials we needed with that beautiful smile on her face the whole time.

Thomas: No, no, no. That’s actually, uh, that’s a great idea. Um, yeah, but actually I’m– I’m heading outta the office right now, but maybe we can talk about a first thing? I’ll talk to you then. Okay, bye.

Brooke: Oh, good, Thomas, you’re still here.

Thomas: Uh, yes, I am. But I am leaving actually right now.

Brooke: You in a hurry?

Thomas: Yes, I have dinner plans.

Brooke: Okay. Well, that can wait. I’d like to talk to you before you go see Hope.

Hope: What are you doing here, Liam?

Liam: What? Uh, well, uh, Beth has a– a sleepover this weekend and I thought she could, uh, use her sleeping bag. She’s not here, obviously, is she?

Hope: No, she is with Katie.

Liam: What is this? What– what– what are you doing? What are you wearing?

Hope: Oh, this– this is, uh, called lingerie.

Liam: Yeah, I know it– are you– are you expecting Thomas?

Hope: You know what? I will make sure that Beth has her sleeping bag when you come to pick her up, okay?

Liam: Okay. Well, I– I’m sorry. Hold on. We’re– we’re just not gonna talk about the scantily clad elephant in the room or what?

Hope: What? What? What? What do you want to know, Liam?

Liam: What I wanted– what I– touché. I guess I don’t know what I wanna know because– I– I– I– I’m sorry. I never asked you how far you and Thomas have gone because I didn’t think I wanted to know and– and now–

[ Liam scoffing ]

Hope: And now you know.

Steffy: So, you weren’t intimidated at all helping Eric Forrester create his most opulent line ever?

Luna: Uh, no. It was actually really fascinating and so inspiring, the way Eric just threw himself into his craft and he just found so much joy in everything, despite all that’s happening to him. I’m sorry, RJ told me that you just found out.

Steffy: Yeah. Still trying to process it.

Luna: I shouldn’t have brought it up, I’m sorry.

Steffy: No, it’s– it’s fine. It’s fine. I’m glad that you did. I think we should just get it out, you know, as a family.

Finn: Eric’s just not ready.

Steffy: Neither am I. Thought of losing our grandfather is unthinkable.

RJ: It’s okay. I couldn’t process it either when he told me and I had all these questions for him and– sorry. Yeah, it’s just, yeah. He just wanted to work on the collection, so that’s what we did. We got it done.

Luna: Yeah. I mean, it wasn’t grim, though. I mean, it was really long days, long hours, but, um, you and your grandfather made it really fun.

Finn: Well, something tells me that you helped with that, too.

RJ: She did. He would be– we’d working those long hours and he would start getting frustrated with the design or something and she’d just come right in and she’d like, ask him a question about his history in the fashion industry and his legacy. It was perfect. She was– she was amazing.

Luna: I mean, his stories were amazing and so funny.

[ Luna laughing ]

Steffy: Thank you, Luna. Seriously, thank you for being there for RJ and our grandfather, helping my brother carry this burden and distract our grandfather from this illness. You allowed them to enjoy their time together and I… I couldn’t be more grateful.

Thomas: If you know that I’m seeing Hope, then you know I don’t wanna be late.

Brooke: Okay. Uh, look, it’s been a long emotional day for everybody. So, maybe it’s best that you spend some time with your sister, your father.

Thomas: Anyone but your daughter. Look, I get it, Brooke. You still have misgivings about me, but your daughter doesn’t.

Brooke: That’s what worries me the most.

Thomas: What do you want me to do? You want me to apologize again?

Brooke: Apologizing doesn’t help unless you change your behavior.

Thomas: But I have changed my behavior. I– I have over and over again and you’ve told me that you’ve seen the change in me, the progression and so has my sister and my father. My entire family has, and so has your daughter. She’s told me that she truly believes in me now.

Hope: It’s already been a tough day. I just really want to unwind and enjoy my night with Thomas without any kind of drama, all right?

Liam: You– you wanna unwind with– are you even– are you even hearing yourself?

Hope: My plans don’t have to meet your approval, Liam.

Liam: Candles, wine, Lingerie. This is– this is the guy who let us think our daughter was dead, and now you’re inviting him into that same daughter’s home?

Hope: Beth and Douglas are away for the night.

Liam: Beth wouldn’t even be in our lives if Thomas had his way. We would still be grieving right now. Do you ever– do you ever think about that?

Hope: Liam, that was years ago. It wasn’t yesterday. And I get that this is a shock for you!

Liam: As an exercise, maybe just try imagining a life without Beth. Just– just imagine that. Imagine the kind of mind it takes to see your grief, to see your suffering and think, “Oh, this is going according to plan.” Just imagine that for a second. Then tell me how you wanna unwind with Thomas.

Steffy: Okay, Listen. Gotta admit something. We’ve, uh–

Finn: We’ve got– we’ve been really– we’ve been really busy.

Steffy: Yeah, we have. I mean, obviously, with family stuff and me being away and–

Finn: We– we normally, but we just did not have time to cook.

Steffy: So, we– we ordered in.

Finn: Yeah.

Luna: Okay. Well, takeout’s my favorite food group.

RJ: Takeout is the food group, so yeah.

Finn: But you guys are gonna love this place. It’s– it’s right down by the pier. Um, and– oh, unless, um, do you still have that thing about fish?

Luna: Oh, my gosh! How do you still remember that?

Finn: Well, it turns out taking your little cousin to a seafood restaurant after visiting the aquarium is a supremely bad idea.

Steffy: Ooh. Yeah.

Luna: Okay. But I have matured a lot since then.

Finn: No. Yeah, but it– but it sounds like you’re just as sensitive and caring as ever.

Steffy: Well, that’s exactly what we need at Forrester. It’s so important to have people in your life that you can rely on knowing that they’re gonna be there through anything. That’s what matters. Real security. I’m just glad to be home with my family. Be back at Forrester. I’m really excited to work with you again, RJ. And I’m excited to get to know you more, Luna.

RJ: Well, here’s to the future.

Steffy: To the future.

Finn: To the future. Cheers.

Thomas: Look, I can’t help the way that you feel right now, Brooke, but I’m also not gonna allow your emotions to affect mine.

Brooke: Thomas, I’m concerned about you as well. I don’t want you to get hurt in this situation either.

Thomas: Nobody is going to get hurt. Hope and I have told you that.

Brooke: Okay. I don’t get it. You are a handsome, successful man surrounded by beautiful, intelligent women everywhere you go.

Thomas: Thank you. But like I’ve told Hope, I only wanna be with her.

Brooke: She doesn’t feel the same way. She doesn’t love you like that, Thomas.

Thomas: She has been burned by love. She doesn’t even believe in it right now.

Brooke: And she’ll never forget the pain that you caused her and her family. That will always be there. There is no way around it.

Thomas: I understand where you’re coming from. Look, yes, we’ve been having amazing times recently. That hasn’t changed that we have had issues in the past. It’s very complicated, but the– the moments that we have had over the last few months have been incredible.

Brooke: Okay. Well, Hope is lost right now. She’s not herself. But she’s going to find her way back. And when she does, this connection that you feel like you have with her is going to be cut.

Liam: Okay. So, you have just forgotten everything Thomas has done to us.

Hope: No, Liam, I haven’t.

Liam: I mean, like, should we review this is the same guy who, uh, convinced us our daughter was dead, used his son to get close to you.

Hope: Thomas has taken responsibility for that, Liam. He’s grown.

Liam: Oh, give me a break. The closer he gets to you, the more unhinged he becomes. How do you not see that by now?

Hope: Because Thomas has changed, Liam. How have you not seen that? And so have I.

Liam: What does that even mean?

Hope: It means I’m not the same woman I was before. I mean, my world got turned upside down when our marriage imploded. And after years of forgiving you, to see you not offer me an ounce of understanding, for you to just turn your back so callously? And I thought I knew you. So, uh, yeah. No. Now, I see the world in a whole new way, and you, of all people, do not get to stand there and judge me.

Liam: I’m not– I’m not– I’m not judging you. I’m scared for you. Move on if you want, just not with Thomas.

Hope: Oh. Oh, you mean a man that prioritizes me and who doesn’t have eyes for other women? Who loves me? Yeah. You don’t get to sit there and tell me to move on and dump him when things got hard for us and you went and ran to Steffy.

Liam: I am sorry that I hurt you… but you and I are connected for the rest of our life because of our daughter, because of Beth. My kids are the most important thing in the world to me. I love them, which means I’m gonna worry for them, which means I’m gonna worry for you. And damn if I don’t still love you. Always will.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Nikki: Claire! Claire, answer me!

[ Nikki sighing ] All right, I have to think. I have to think. What is happening? What arrangements is she making in genoa city? What do you want from me? All right. Just calm down. You’ve dealt with worse than this. All that matters right now is getting out of here. I can figure this out. I can do this and when I’m out… there’ll be hell to pay!

Victoria: Why am I not surprised that you two are here? You’ve just come from being with dad. Am I right?

Adam: Yes, we have.

Victoria: And you want to try to convince me to stay on at newman because now you are the good and faithful son all of a sudden. Even though everybody knows that’s a lie, except for dad, who’s desperate to believe it because otherwise, you’re just a reminder that not everything victor newman touches is golden.

Adam: Yeah. And you hate the fact that maybe I did the right thing, for the right reasons. Because then you would have to take me seriously and would consider that victor might actually trust me. And that terrifies you, doesn’t it?

Victoria: No. See what terrifies me actually is that you might blow up the family and the company. But on a personal level, not a chance.

Nick: Okay. Will you two just stop, okay? Things are actually blowing up around us and we need to figure out a way on how to fix it.

Adam: You’re right. I’m sorry, victoria.

Victoria: I’m so sorry, adam.

Nick: There we go. That was nice. Okay, let’s get to the point of why we’re here. Vic, what is it gonna take to convince you to stay at newman?

Lily: So, what do you think?

Jill: I think it’s beautiful. It may have been devon’s before, but you certainly made it your own. This is a lovely place to call home, honey.

Lily: Yeah, I think so too. And with devon and abby at the chancellor house again…

Jill: Ah, yes, devon and abby. And with little dominic racing up and down the halls.

Lily: You think katherine would care about his little handprints on the walls?

Jill: I think katherine would frame those little handprints.

Lily: Ah, true. Can I get you something? Water? Coffee?

Jill: No, I can’t stay long and I assume you didn’t invite me over here to admire your décor, so–

Daniel: Actually, no, she didn’T. There’s been a development at chancellor-winters that you need to hear about.

Jill: What? Something’s happened.

Lily: Yeah, you could say that. Daniel learned more about mamie’s interest in the company.

Jill: Well, then I damn well want to know about it. Let’s hear it.

Daniel: The infiltration doesn’t stop with mamie. The man behind the curtain is none other than tucker mccall.

Jill: Tucker mccall and mamie johnson? Well, that is a match made in hell.

Audra: Thank you.

Tucker: Hey, I got your text. Where’s the fire?

Audra: Have a seat, tucker. You know, in fact, why don’t you grab a drink? You’re not gonna like this.

Diane: Kyle, what’s wrong?

Kyle: Um. Why don’t– why don’t you pour yourself a drink? You’re gonna need it. Hi, my name is damioniane: What’s going on?

Kyle: I hate doing this, for a bunch of reasons.

Diane: Doing what? What is it?

Kyle: It– it’s bad, mom. It’s bad. There will be a lot of “I told you so”s and a lot of groveling on my part to dad. But I– mom, I hope you’ll at least understand why I did the things I did.

Diane: All right. Go on.

Kyle: I’m ashamed and I’ve rationalized a lot to myself and now–

Diane: Kyle, sweetheart, look who you’re talking to. Whatever it is, I– I promise. No– no judgment. Just support, you know that, right?

Kyle: If I didn’t know that, I’d keep this to myself and let it eat me alive. Mom, I– I almost sold out dad and jabot. I almost sold out our entire family to tucker mccall.

Tucker: Okay. Hit me.

Audra: Um… kyle suddenly grew a conscience.

Tucker: Ah. How big of a conscience?

Audra: He’s backing out of our arrangement.

Tucker: And?

Audra: Tucker, there’s every possibility he’s gonna tell his father.

Tucker: Oh, I would say it’s a certainty. Jack already suspects I have something in the works. Kyle will confirm it. The abbotts are nothing, if not predictable.

[ Audra scoffing ]

Audra: So, you knew this was coming? You knew kyle would back out?

Victoria: Well, I gotta say, you know, this is quite a moment. The two of you working in tandem at dad’s command.

Nick: It wasn’t a command.

Adam: Actually, it was a command.

Victoria: You know, if dad ordered you to bring me back to newman, I’m afraid that he’s gonna be very disappointed and you are gonna let him down. I mean, of course, he knows that I would come back if you walk away. Or better yet, if he fires you. Otherwise, I’ll have to respectfully decline.

Adam: Well, there you go, nick. We got our answer. Do you want me to call dad or are you gonna do it?

Nick: What our dad wants is for the three of us to work together, okay? Now, a day ago, you were terrified about losing dad, right? Well, it turns out dad is the same victor newman he always has been. He wants the three of us to work together at his company, and he is not wrong.

Victoria: You know, I just think that that’s kind of funny. Coming from the guy that left newman.

Nick: Okay. That’s fair. I’ll admit it. I was wrong. My place is at newman and it always has been. I’m back, vic, 100%.

Victoria: Well, I guess two out of three isn’t bad. I hope you guys have a really wonderful time working together and I hope dad enjoys every minute of it.

Nick: Oh, come on. Are you really gonna do this to me?

Victoria: What, nicholas? What is being done to you?

Nick: I am stuck in the middle between dad and adam with no ally. Do you think that sounds appealing to me?

Victoria: Well, you’re the one that wants to stay on no matter what.

Nick: Look, we both know that eventually he’s gonna do something stupid and shoot himself in the foot. It is inevitable.

Adam: Okay. Not that I don’t treasure the kind words of encouragement, but need I remind you that I didn’t plan any of this. Now, victor seems to have confidence in me, so why can’t the two of you?

Nick: If adam implodes and no one is there to mitigate the fallout, he’s gonna drag dad and the company down with him.

Adam: You realize that I can hear you, right?

Nick: You need to stop talking and let me handle this.

Adam: Okay because you’re doing such a great job. I think you’ve actually got her on the hook–

Nick: Adam, enough.

Adam: Okay. I’m done. Not another peep from me.

Nick: Like it or not, this is an all-or-nothing scenario. Either the three of us work together or we’re all out and dad is gonna clean house.

Victoria: And yet somehow, adam will even survive that.

Adam: It’s a gift.

[ Lock clicking ]

Nick: Vic, think about it. Dad faked this mental decline to prove a point and it worked. Nate ended up showing his true colors.

Victoria: They’re not as malicious as you or dad wants to think.

Nick: This isn’t about nate. All right. Look, I hate even saying this out loud, but someday the decline is going to be real and do we want him to be the one who’s on the inside looking out for dad and the company?

Adam: Oh, perish the thought.

Nick: I thought you said you were gonna be quiet.

Adam: Oh, well, I lied.

Nick: Would we really be okay with letting him be in charge if, heaven forbid, something did happen to dad?

Victoria: Of course not. But you’ll be there, right?

Nick: Vic, we need each other, all right? We are the safety net between dad and adam.

[ Adam chuckling ]

Adam: My god, you two are unbelievable. I could negotiate world peace, I could cure cancer, eliminate global warming and feed the poor and you would still think, “that son of a bitch is still up to something.” Listen, I’m only gonna say this once, so listen carefully. All I care about is making this work. I don’t wanna best you. I have no interest in tanking the company and destroying my son’s inheritance, even to spite my loving siblings. Okay? Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll let you get back to your boring little tedious conspiring on how to shackle me and throw me into the newman dungeon. I care about one thing and one thing only: What our dad thinks. And as long as he’s got my back, I don’t care how much you two distrust me. But you know who will care about it? Victor newman. So good luck with that.

Nick: So, what’s it gonna be?

Daniel: My mother told me that tucker made some sizable investments through mamie’s financial firm. There you go.

Jill: So, has it been confirmed?

Daniel: Lily’s team verified it.

Lily: In and of itself, it proves nothing. But, I mean, why would tucker invest millions into an account that’s being managed by the same person who bought victor’s share of chancellor-winters?

Jill: Wow. Does devon know?

Daniel: No. No, he doesn’T. I wanted to get your reaction first and lily’s before dragging devon into it. I mean, his relationship with his father is already complicated. I didn’t really feel like it was my place to make matters any worse until we at least knew more.

Jill: Well, there’s no way that tucker isn’t involved in whatever it is mamie is up to. In fact, it was probably his idea in the first place.

[ Jill chuckling ] And she’s just too happy to go along with it. Those two really wanna screw me over. Both of them.

Tucker: I had a pretty good feeling kyle would choke. I said I would put him to the test and I meant it, but I knew the outcome. The kid just doesn’t have it in him.

Audra: So, you knew this would happen, but didn’t keep me in the loop?

Tucker: And run the risk of you overplaying your hand again? Why would I do that?

Audra: So, in other words, you’re putting me to the test as well. Do you trust anyone tucker?

Tucker: Mm-mm. And neither should you. And frankly, I’m a little disappointed in you.

Audra: For what?

Tucker: For not expecting kyle to do exactly what he did. You of all people should know that carnal attraction only goes so far.

Audra: Well, thank you for your deep and important life lessons.

Tucker: Plus, I learned all too brutally from ashley that– that abbott blood is– is thick as tar.

Audra: So, what now?

Tucker: You relax. We have a drink, we bide our time. This is all part of the process for junior. But believe me, we haven’t heard or seen the last of kyle abbott. So i

Kyle: You know how I felt I deserved to be reinstated as co-ceo of jabot. And not entitled, not nepoed in. Deserved.

Diane: Of course. And I wanted that for you and for jabot.

Kyle: Yeah, and we both knew that was never gonna happen. Dad was not gonna risk sending billy off the rails by taking his position away from him. And yeah, I was pissed.

Diane: I don’t blame you. Kyle, what did you do?

Kyle: I vented to audra and she tempted me with an offer.

Tucker: So, what kyle’s gonna do is confess to mommy and daddy as much of this as his courage will allow. And he’ll play the victim. “Poor me. Even after all I’ve done for jabot and all I’ve contributed.” Blah, blah, blah. And then you, jezebel. He will claim that you have, um, you’ve preyed on his emotions and tried to lure him into your web. Forced him to make bad choices, choices that involve tucker mccall. And he’s so ashamed to admit it, but he was tempted.

Kyle: Tucker and audra have a plan to stage a hostile takeover at jabot, but I don’t know the specifics and tucker has no interest in having any hands-on involvement running the company. He’s leaving that to audra.

Diane: And in turn, audra has offered you the position that jack wouldn’t give you.

Audra: If you knew this would happen, then it’s clearly what you wanted. But why?

Tucker: Jack, because he’s so predictable, is gonna use his son the way he tried to use his brother and send kyle right back into the belly of the beast. I’m the beast, of course. Only this time as a mole.

Victor: Hi.

Victoria: Hi.

Victor: What can I do for you?

Victoria: I just came by to thank you.

Victor: Thank me for what?

Victoria: For making it so obvious how little my feelings and my opinions mean to you.

Victor: What are you talking about?

Victoria: Daddy, you sent nicholas and adam by to basically emotionally strong-arm me into staying at newman. Really? I mean, in other words, you have zero respect for my instincts.

Victor: Oh, your instincts. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. That’s right. Wait a minute, your instincts that led you to billy boy abbott, J.T. Hellstrom, ashland locke and now, nate hastings. Hell of an instinct.

Victoria: My personal life has nothing to do with this. It’s business. You’re always the one who says it’s not personal, it’s business, so please leave my exes out of this, please.

Victor: My dear girl–

Victoria: This is about you that’s the problem.

Victoria: My personal life has nothing to do with this. It’s business. You’re always the one who says it’s not personal, it’s business, so please leave my exes out of this, please.

Victor: My dear girl–

Victoria: This is about you and me and what I bring to the table.

Victor: The problem is that you bring your personal business into the office. That’s the problem.

Victoria: Well, I’m sorry then, daddy. I’m confused. Why do you even want me back here?

Victor: Two reasons. For your mother and for yourself.

[ Stairs creaking ]

[ Nikki panting ]

Nikki: Hello. Hello. Please. Please, someone help me. Oh, god. Damn it!

[ Nikki gasping ]

Nikki: What do you want?

Claire: Tell you and spoil the surprise? I wouldn’t dream of it. Not until everyone’s here.

Nikki: Who?

Claire: That family that you cherish so much. Although god knows why? They are as dysfunctional as any family I’ve ever seen. They think they’re so superior, so above it all. They hurt people over perceived threats. They– they discard people like trash who they think are of no use to them. You all are the worst kind of people. Vicious, sanctimonious. You disgust me.

Nikki: What are you talking about?

Claire: Did you really believe that the time would never come to even the score? I have been very patient. I have waited long enough. Time’s up. Hm. That’s it. Close your eyes. Sleep. You’ll have your answers very soon. You’re not gonna like them, but you deserve all the pain they’ll cause.

Nikki: Stay away from my family.

Claire: Sorry, nikki. You’re not calling the shots anymore.

Victor: You know damn well, it means everything to your mother to have you here and thrive.

Victoria: Well, it’s just a little hard to thrive when you’re constantly pushing me down.

Victor: What do you mean I’m constantly pushing you down? What the hell are you talking about? You have sat in this chair for how long? I’m pushing you down? Watch your tone.

Victoria: You know what? Mom might actually have more respect for me if I call you out on your constant and outrageous acceptance of adam. In spite of all of his underhanded and hurtful and egregious moves that he’s always making. You know what, daddy? I think mom would actually even maybe applaud me if I cleaned out my desk and I walked away. Tell me something. How does it benefit me? How do I thrive by sticking around here and watching you continue to make excuses for adam every time he tries to stick a knife in your back.

Victor: Let me ask you something. What would you have without this company? Without me? You have nothing.

Diane: I get it. I completely understand the temptation. I– I really do. But the important thing is you didn’t act on it. That’s what matters.

Kyle: But I considered it.

Diane: But clearly, you regret that and now you’ve done the right thing. I’m– I’m proud of you.

Kyle: Yeah, I don’t know if I deserve that. I definitely didn’t expect it.

Diane: What did you expect?

Kyle: I don’t know. I thought you’d probably use it as another opportunity to rip into audra again. Or at least remind me of what an idiot I was to get involved with her in the first place.

Diane: I think I’ve said enough about that. You don’t need to hear it again.

Kyle: Now, all I have to do is tell dad.

Diane: No. No, not yet.

Audra: Look, I can see your logic about jack trying to use kyle as a mole. It’s the kind of thing the abbotts think is clever. But what I don’t think you’re taking into account is that kyle has obviously lost his nerve, which proves he’s weak. You know, why would he be so willing to just throw himself back into that arena?

Tucker: Because he’s so desperate for his dad’s approval.

Audra: Okay. That’s fair. So, I assume the plan would be to use this to our advantage by pointing kyle in exactly the wrong direction.

Tucker: Yeah, that’s one way to go about it.

Jill: I have been knocking on your door upstairs for the last five minutes. I assumed you were avoiding me.

Tucker: Why in the world would I do that? You know that feeling of having to rewash dishesthat didn’t get clean? I don’T. Cascade platinum plus has me doing dishes… differently. Scrub? Soak? Nope. I just scrape, load and I’m done. Only platinum plus is bigger.

With double the dawn grease

fighting power

and double

the scrubbing power.

For a no rewash clean…

and a cabinet ready shine.

Kyle: Why shouldn’t I go ahead and confess to dad? Mom, I hate the idea of looking him in the eye and pretending that nothing is wrong.

Diane: Don’t do that to yourself. Instead, recognize this as an opportunity and turn it into something positive. You’re just going to need some more information.

Kyle: I– I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Diane: Well, let me spell it out for you. It’s time that you turn the tables on audra and take advantage of her for a change.

Kyle: Mom, why would I do that?

Diane: Why? So you can find out what she and tucker are really planning and then you can bring the details back to your father. You don’t have to tell him that you almost fell into their trap. You can even say that this has been your plan all along. Just think how proud he’ll be of you.

Kyle: That would be a lie.

Diane: No, it would be a slight manipulation of the order of events. And he would be proud and grateful.

Kyle: Mom, I just–

Diane: So grateful, in fact, that he will forget all of this billy nonsense and give you exactly what you want.

Jill: Sweetie, would you excuse us, please? I need to talk to this one by myself.

Tucker: Would you mind?

Audra: Not at all.

Tucker: And, uh, contact me when you hear from that friend we were discussing.

Audra: Yeah, of course. Nice seeing you, jill.

Tucker: Is it just me or has it been too long?

Jill: Oh, it’s just you. Listen, tucker, I don’t wanna play games here. Okay, I don’t want any dancing around the issues or any snappy comebacks because I don’t have the time or the patience for it.

Tucker: What about just a few seconds to reminisce?

Jill: I know that you were behind mamie’s decision to invest in chancellor-winters. And I also know that for years, you’ve resented the fact that I’m running the company that your mama–

Tucker: Now, let’s leave katherine out of this, shall we?

Jill: Fair enough. Okay. I just came here to tell you that you do not intimidate me. As a matter of fact, you don’t even worry me.

Tucker: Really? Jill, you wouldn’t be sitting here if that were true. You’re worried because you know I have a plan. And that scares you because my plans don’t often fail.

Jill: Well, I guess I’ll just have to check with ashley on that one.

Lily: No matter what happens between jill and tucker, I have to tell devon what we found out.

Daniel: Okay. Maybe you should at least wait until we find out what tucker is actually up to.

Lily: Well, I mean, even if it’s nothing, I have to tell hi

Lily: No matter what happens between jill and tucker, I have to tell devon what we found out.

Daniel: Okay. Maybe you should at least wait until we find out what tucker is actually up to.

Lily: Well, I mean, even if it’s nothing, I have to tell him what’s going on.

Daniel: You don’t think that maybe he’s already a little suspicious?

Lily: Well, no, I know he is. I know he already talked to tucker about a possible connection to mamie. But one of the caveats of us working together again was full transparency and I take that very seriously. And plus, I hate the turmoil that he’s in over his father.

Daniel: I just think it’s a little premature. I mean, what if you say something to him and it blows up that turmoil even more before we get a chance to confirm whether it’s true or not?

Lily: I mean, look, devon is a strong intelligent person. If I tell him that we have this information, but we’re still digging, he’ll understand that. I think he would appreciate that a lot more than being left in the dark.

Victoria: So, you think that my life is empty without you and newman? Really? I mean, that’s the daughter that you think you raised. Oh, my god. Have you ever had any respect for me, at all?

Victor: I did very much.

Victoria: Did? Past tense?

Victor: Without this company to focus on, I’m worried that you’ll spin out.

Victoria: Oh, I see. So, you really think that I am that frail and unbalanced. That if I chose not to tolerate adam and accept this subservient role that I have here at newman, that I am that weak and that I– I would fall apart. Really, dad?

Victor: I honestly don’t know what to think about you anymore, all right?

Nick: I had a feeling this is where you were headed. How bad has it gotten?

Victoria: Well, dad seems seems to think that I– I live a meaningless life and that I would just completely fall apart without his guidance. Maybe I will, dad. Maybe you’re right. Maybe that’s exactly what I’m gonna do. I’m just gonna fall apart.

Victor: Okay.

Victoria: Yeah, I’m just gonna completely lose control. Look out, world! Victoria newman is about to spin out.

Nick: Vic…

[ Nick sighing ]

Nikki: Who’s there?

Nick: Hi. Is, uh, sharon in? Okay. Could I get a green tea? Thank you.

Audra: Tucker.

Tucker: Uh, I’ll call you later. It’s all good.

[ Victor sighing ]

Nikki: Victor.

Victor: That’s my sweet baby. Sh, you have to keep quiet. You can’t alert anyone that I’m here, all right?

Nikki: No.

Victor: But I’m gonna get you out of here.

Nikki: Victor, I don’t know what’s going on. Why is claire doing this to me? What does she want?

Victor: Sweetheart, everything is gonna be all right. Right now, you’re going to have to hold very still, okay? It’s going to hurt when I pull it out, all right?

Nikki: Okay. All right.

Victor: So, you ready?

Nikki: Yeah.

Victor: Okay.

[ Contemplative music ]

Steffy: Granddad’s been sick the entire time I’ve been gone? I– I wouldn’t have left if– if I knew.

Ridge: Don’t do that. You couldn’t have known. We didn’t know.

Steffy: How’s Donna?

Ridge: She’s okay. It was hard for her in the beginning because she didn’t have anyone, but now she’s got Katie and Brooke. That’s why she went over there now.

Steffy: Oh.

Thomas: This, uh… it doesn’t feel real.

Steffy: Yeah.

Thomas: Right? He can’t– he can’t go. I’m not ready to lose him.

Ridge: I’m not either.

Donna: Honey, um, why don’t we just chill by the pool today? It’s– it’s a gorgeous day.

Katie: You know, you did what you wanted to do. You won the fashion challenge. You beat Ridge. I think that deserves a little bit of a breather.

Eric: To the victor belong the spoils. I’m going to go into my building, into my office. I’m gonna put my feet on my desk.

[ Eric coughing ]

Donna: Here you go.

Eric: Thank you, but it’s all right. It’s all right. I’m fine. I’m not going to die today.

[ Eric coughing ]

Eric: I’m sorry. Excuse me. I have this, uh, this cough thing, and every time– every time I cough, she thinks it’s gonna be the death of me. What– what do I owe this visit?

Brooke: Uh, well, I have a break in my schedule and I thought it would be nice to spend some time with my sisters.

Eric: Ah, good.

Brooke: So, are you going to the office?

Eric: Yes. Yes. My office. Yes, I am. Uh-huh. Is Ridge there?

Brooke: Yeah, he is.

Eric: Good, good. I want to see him. I want to talk to him. But don’t worry, I won’t gloat about his loss. Not too much. I’ll see you later. Bye.

Brooke: Bye. How are you holding up?

Donna: I don’t know. I’m just trying to hold it together, you know. It’s been killing me, keeping this a secret.

Brooke: Yeah. Well, uh–

Katie: What is it? What’s going on?

Donna: Brooke, what?

Brooke: Uh, Ridge couldn’t hold back. He said he couldn’t look his kids in the eye and just lie to them, let alone hide his feelings, so…

Donna: What are you saying, Brooke?

Brooke: So, he– he told Steffy and Thomas the truth about their grandfather.

Thomas: So, we’re really supposed to keep this a secret?

Ridge: Granddad doesn’t want anyone to know.

Steffy: Just act like everything’s fine?

Carter: Seems like I walked in on something.

Ridge: Just filling Steffy in on what she missed.

Carter: Okay. Maybe you can fill me in too? You’ve been avoiding me. Do they know?

Ridge: Do they know what?

Carter: About the fashion challenge? The showcase that Eric won?

Ridge: Yeah, they know.

Carter: Okay, then I need answers. After months of hard work, us bending the budget forwards and backwards so this showcase can happen, you what? You just– you just give away the win? Your designs outsold Eric’s that day, so why did you let him believe you won?

Donna: I can understand why Ridge would wanna tell Thomas and Steffy about Eric. I mean, it would be too difficult to keep it from them, but listen, Eric cannot know that they know.

Brooke: They understand.

Donna: Thank you. Now, I just– I just have to pull it together because I– I need to be strong for Eric.

Brooke: Donna, you’ve been his rock through this.

Donna: But then why do I feel like I’m just falling apart?

Katie: Because you shouldn’t have to go through this all by yourself.

Donna: Well, what choice do I have? I mean, I– uh, Eric doesn’t want anyone to know.

Brooke: I wish he would just give up on the need to feel like he has to keep his condition to himself. We could all be there for him and love him and support him. But instead, we have to play this charade and pretend like everything is fine when nothing could be further from the truth.

Donna: I know.

[ Knock on door ]

Hope: Hi. Um, is Eric around because I had a few ideas for hope for the future and I– Aunt Donna, is everything okay?

Donna: Yeah. Why? Of course, everything’s fine. I just, um– um– I–

Hope: Mom. What is– what is going on?

Brooke: Uh…

Donna: You can tell her.

Hope: Tell me what?

Brooke: Sweetheart, it’s Eric. He’s sick.

Hope: Sick?

Brooke: Well, it’s awful, really. He’s– he’s dying. Eric is dying.

Carter: What is this, Ridge? Come on. Why are you avoiding my question? You let Eric believe he won the fashion challenge. Why?

Ridge: I wanted to see him happy. It means a lot to him.

Carter: No, I know how much you were looking forward to winning. I was there when you saw the numbers. I showed them to you. Now, you weren’t thrilled it got this far, but you were happy you won. You believed you should be sitting behind that desk. You asked me to keep it quiet. You wanted to be the one to tell Eric he lost. And out of nowhere, I hear that you announced him and RJ the winners? You see, the more you avoid my question, the more I want an answer. Talk to me, man. What is this? There has to be a reason. Do you two know why?

Ridge: Carter, just…

Eric: Well, look at this.

[ Eric chuckling ]

Eric: I’m glad to see that my office is being used as a conference room. That hasn’t really changed. Although, I have to say, I don’t want anyone to sit behind my desk, all right?

Ridge: No one’s gonna sit in your chair, Dad, because winner takes all, right?

Eric: And I will. Yes, that’s right. I forgot that a little healthy competition is really good for an artist. And you did that to me. You did some really wonderful work and you forced me to do some of the best work in my career. In– in my whole life.

Ridge: Is this you saying thank you? Is that what this is?

Eric: No, although I do appreciate it. It was really fun beating you. What’s this? Why are you all looking like that? Oh, I think I understand. Your father got to you, didn’t he?

Steffy: Yes, he did. He told us everything.

Hope: I don’t understand. How could Eric be dying? He seemed more energized than ever. He completed his last collection. I mean, he beat Ridge in the showdown, so…

Brooke: I know, I know. We were all shocked to find out about his condition.

Hope: How long has he been sick?

Donna: Um, well, uh, we– we– we started seeing symptoms a few months ago.

Hope: So, he’s– he’s just been in pain this entire time?

Donna: Yeah, we thought the tremors was just arthritis really, and– and that’s why we asked RJ to help him design because he couldn’t sketch.

Hope: So, that’s how RJ became involved in all this?

Donna: Yeah. RJ was Literally Eric’s hands.

Brooke: Eric is a very proud man, so it was devastating for him to think that maybe he wouldn’t be able to design anymore.

Donna: Especially when he felt that he had so much more to create.

Hope: Oh, so that’s why he wanted to call this collection his grand finale.

Katie: What’s crazy is that if Ridge had known about Eric’s condition, he never would have tried to stand in Eric’s way.

Donna: Well, we didn’t know the full extent of it at first. We just thought that we’d have time to figure it out, you know?

Hope: I’m so sorry, Donna.

Brooke: Honey, it’s important that you don’t let Eric know that you found out. Because he only thinks that Katie and Donna and RJ know.

Katie: But word is spreading.

Hope: But why wouldn’t he want everyone to know?

Donna: He doesn’t want to be pitied.

Hope: We wouldn’t pity him. We love him. He’s always been there for all of us and now, when he needs our support the most, we’re just, what? We’re supposed to pretend like we don’t know? I’m sorry. That’s just– Mom…

Brooke: I know, honey. I know.

Eric: So, what exactly did your father tell you? Thomas?

[ Eric chuckling ]

Eric: Your– your kids are tongue-tied here? Well, I think they can’t quite believe that their grandfather beat the great Ridge Forrester.

Ridge: Well, if I’m great, Dad, it’s because of everything you’ve given me.

Eric: What about you, Carter? Were you surprised that I won the fashion challenge?

Carter: I have to admit, yes. But not too surprised, though. You’re Eric Forrester. I’m very excited to see you back at the forefront for many years to come. Now, I should get going. Thanks to you, I have several orders to manage. Catch you later, Ridge.

Eric: Nobody should be that surprised. Not really. I mean, I’m older, God knows. And, uh, I’ve lost a few steps here and there, but there’s still a lot of– a lot of gas in the tank. And besides, we do art here. Art lives forever. It never dies and it’s our job to be sure it’s never forgotten. It’s like, uh, like this– this old stapler here. It’s been here since the very first day. Helping– helping this– this company start from the beginning and to last forever, but he got– he got lost and he got forgotten for a while. But now, it’s back, like me. These are going to be mighty days at Forrester. They really are. And I’m going to make the most of every day I have left.

Ridge: Dad, you–

Eric: Look Ridge, uh, you know, I’m not naive. My days are limited. Time is not on my side.

Steffy: Grandad, please don’t say that.

Eric: Steffy, it’s true. Look, I’m not gonna just, uh, go quietly off into the good night somewhere. I’m not gonna do that. And Ridge, you– you, hey, you want me to– you wanted me to just retire. To sit back and Llie back on some– some yacht somewhere. But life is meant to be lived and I intend to live every day of my life until my last.

Brooke: Ridge has told Steffy and Thomas about their grandfather.

Hope: And how did they take the news?

Brooke: Well, like you. Shocked and in disbelief.

Hope: Oh, I just don’t understand why he thinks that we would pity him? When we could support him and show him our– our– our love.

Katie: It’s his decision.

Hope: Maybe it’s the wrong one. I’m sorry, but…

Katie: No, no, I– believe me. We all felt the same way when we found out about Eric’s illness, but it’s not about how we feel. It’s about how he feels. It’s his decision, how he wants to live his life. And he says he wants to live until he dies.

Donna: Exactly. That’s– that’s what he keeps saying. No sorrow. No tears.

Katie: We can love and support him by honoring his wishes and not treat him like he’s dying. Just try to treasure every moment we have with him.

Donna: That’s so hard, but that’s what I’m trying to do. To– to live in the moment. To love in the moment. And as– as horrible as this is, Eric’s happy. I mean, you should see how excited he is about life. I mean, you should have seen him designing with RJ in this room. He was– he was on fire. And– and the look on his face when he learned that he won the– the showdown. That’s what he wants to do, until the end. Smiles and laughter and love.

Brooke: Don’t worry, honey. We’ll all get through this together, as a family.

Eric: Time stops for no man. Not even your grandfather. And don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere very soon, and certainly not after my greatest achievement.

Ridge: No, that was your finest hour. Mine, too. Because I got to share the stage with you.

Eric: It was fun, wasn’t it?

Ridge: It was. You inspire me.

Thomas: You inspire me too, Granddad. You know, I don’t– I don’t know if you actually remember this at all. I must have been like 14. Yeah. Um, I had an art project for school.

Eric: I know. I know. It was the, uh… it was that watercolor.

Thomas: Yeah.

Eric: Yeah.

Thomas: That was it. It was amazing. You just, I– it made no sense to me, right? And you were just eager to help. That’s always how you are. You’re just, you’re– you’re thoughtful, you’re caring and you’re always there and um, it meant a lot to me. But you– you taught me then, but you still continue to teach me now. Not just as a designer, but as a man.

Eric: Yeah.

Steffy: The truth is you’ve always been a light in our family. I remember when I was really little, when I’d come here and yeah, I was kind of excited to see the gowns, but I was really excited to see you working behind the desk and creating.

Eric: I thought it was just because of the jelly beans in the top drawer?

Steffy: Yeah, that– that,  too.

[ Eric laughing ]

Steffy: But even when you were so busy, you always– you always made time for me. I looked up to you then and I still look up to you. You know how close we are. like we’ve always had this connection and maybe part of it is because I’m grandmother’s namesake, but…

Eric: Two beautiful, wonderful, fearless women.

Ridge: Fearless. Everyone gets that from you. The great Eric Forrester.
