Wyatt: What are you keeping from me?
Flo: I–I can leave if you two rather would just talk on your own.
Quinn: No, no, no. You stay here because I’m the one who’s gonna be leaving. So–
Wyatt: Mom, if you need my help with something, you have to talk to me.
Quinn: Uh, no. No. Just drop it. Okay. I’m not keeping anything. There are no secrets. If you haven’t realized, all the secrets have been exposed recently.
Wyatt: Okay. Fine. Well, if you need me, I’m here for you.
Quinn: Thank you very much, sweetheart. But all I need to do now is–is go because somebody is waiting for me. So–
Flo: Well, you don’t want to keep a lawyer waiting. I hear they charge by the minute.
Flo: Assuming you’re trying to go talk to someone about your divorce.
Quinn: I am. I am. This is about my future. So, okay. Bye.
[ Door slams ]
Brooke: Something wrong?
Carter: No. I’m just on my way to a meeting, unless you need me.
Ridge: Uh, no, there’s a couple things, but we can deal with that later.
Carter: Okay. I won’t be long.
Ridge: Hey, Carter. Were you as surprised as I was that Dad went along with your suggestion?
Carter: No, no. It, uh, makes sense, financially.
Brooke: Oh, what suggestion are you talking about?
Ridge: We’re gonna keep Quinn’s jewelry line.
Ridge: Carter’s recommendation and it does make sense, financially. It really does. But it means more paperwork for you.
Carter: More paperwork?
Ridge: Yeah. It’s a bitter divorce. She’s still gonna be a part of the company, can’t be easy.
Carter: Nothing that I can’t handle. So, don’t worry. I’ll take care of everything in regards to Quinn. See you soon.
[ Door slams ]
Wyatt: No, absolutely not. Those aren’t the terms that we agreed upon and you’re not changing them now. Well, I could get my father on the phone, but we both know how that would go. Oh, very good. That’s exactly what I thought you’d say. No, no, no, no, no. Thank you. Sorry. Uh, didn’t mean for that to take so long.
Flo: It’s no problem. You know I always like watching my sexy fiancé in his business mode.
Wyatt: It was kind of sexy, huh? Holding people to contracts?
Flo: Oh, it’s so sexy.
Wyatt: Do you want me to yell at somebody else?
Flo: Would you really have gotten Bill involved?
Wyatt: No, no. I’m not that cruel. [ Clears throat ] But I just–I am thankful to know that’s an option again. I can’t tell you how relieved I am to have my dad and my brother out of jail.
Flo: Yeah. It must feel really good not to worry about them anymore.
Wyatt: Now I can focus all of my concern and worry on my mom.
Brooke: Is this some kind of joke? Quinn really is still a part of the company?
Ridge: All right. Before you get all riled up–
Brooke: Oh, this is terrible.
Ridge: It’s not terrible. It makes sense, financially. The line makes us money.
Brooke: Well, I could still make us money with a different designer.
Ridge: Finding a different designer and starting over takes a long time.
Brooke: Oh, gosh. I guess I was really naive thinking we got rid of Quinn for good.
Ridge: We’re almost there, but…
Brooke: But–but what? Carter spoke up? Arguing to keep the line? To keep Quinn?
Ridge: What are you saying?
Quinn: Hey. Hey, let me in before anybody sees me.
Carter: Well, thank you for coming.
Quinn: [ Sighs ] I shouldn’t be here, especially if Eric finds out you’re still in contact with me.
Carter: Where did you park?
Quinn: Two blocks down.
Carter: That’s good. Smart.
Quinn: It’s not smart to be here and it is not smart to be alone with you, Carter.
Flo: I’m sure you noticed this too, but your mom was acting weird, right? Like, weirder than usual?
Wyatt: Oh, totally very weird. Like, this whole divorce is probably killing her inside. She built her whole life around Eric and their marriage.
Flo: Or so we thought. And then, Carter comes around and… you know what? Good for her. I mean, I’m–I’m– I’m just saying. It–like, he’s smart, he’s gorgeous, he’s successful and gorgeous. I mean that smile and those arms. Did I mention he’s gorgeous?
Flo: I mean, he’s totally not my type, like, at all, but I could see how she could fall for him and have a connection.
Wyatt: Right, because of how gorgeous he is?
Flo: Is he? I didn’t notice. I love you.
Brooke: I don’t wanna second-guess Carter’s reasoning.
Ridge: But you are.
Brooke: Okay. Look, Eric is trying to divorce Quinn. He’s trying to disassociate himself from her and his lawyer should advise him to get rid of the line. Instead, Carter is encouraging Eric to keep it. I mean, that sounds kind of strange, don’t you think?
Ridge: Carter promised to stay away from Quinn. That’s why he still has a job. And his job at this company is to make sure we make money and the jewelry line makes money.
Brooke: Yeah. And I guess you’re right. It is a money maker. It’s just disappointing. After everything that Quinn has done, I was really looking forward to seeing Eric kicking her to the curb.
Quinn: We already said our goodbyes. We agreed we weren’t gonna see each other anymore.
Carter: I know, but something happened, something I need to tell you about.
Carter: Okay. So, you know how Eric called, he wanted to see me?
Quinn: Yeah. He–he knows we’re still seeing each other. And–and even though we’re not, we agree we weren’t going to, so you need to find a way to make sure he understands
Carter: It’s fine. It’s fine. It’s fine. It’s fine. He doesn’t suspect a thing. That’s not what we… talked about. Um, hmm, we, um– we went over the divorce, the, uh, professional and personal details and he said he wanted to end the jewelry line.
Quinn: Ugh. You know, Wyatt was speculating about that. He–he–he–he said– I–I mean, I–I just– does Eric despise me that much that he would throw away years and years of my work? I mean, my art, my contribution to Forrester Creations, it…
Carter: Yeah. I know. I know. You worked so hard. It’s a part of you, it’s a part of Forrester, and I couldn’t let him get rid of it. Not without a fight. One of the advantages of being a lawyer is that I’m good at building a case.
Quinn: What are you saying?
Carter: I’m saying that your line isn’t going anywhere. I convinced Eric to keep it.
Wyatt: So, am I getting this right? My future wife is–is suggesting that if an attractive, gorgeous-armed man looks her way, it’s okay?
Flo: No, no, no, no, no, no, that’s–that’s not what I’m saying. I am–I am not condoning what your mother did at all. Betraying her marriage like that and hurting Eric is very wrong.
Wyatt: Okay. Good.
Flo: But knowing that Eric was turning her down and stopped touching her, I guess part of me kind of understands it. I mean, if–if Eric wasn’t making her feel loved and wanted and Carter was– everyone deserves to feel desired. It’s a basic human need.
Wyatt: Well, it’s a need I hope I’m fulfilling.
Flo: Oh. You for sure are.
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ]
Flo: I feel very grateful to have you in my life. What we have is extremely special and… I’m lucky to have found you again.
Wyatt: [ Chuckles ] So, 20 years from now…
Wyatt: …Right? When–when–when everything I say just bores you, my jokes don’t land…
Wyatt: …And this beefcake gorgeous lawyer starts chatting you up–
Flo: I will thank him very much for his legal advice and I will come right home to you.
Wyatt: Your inseparable husband?
Flo: You probably will be, right?
Flo: [ Laughs ] But I will love you all the more for it. You’re more gorgeous.
Wyatt: Thank you. I–I was waiting for you to say that. And I’ve been working out, you know. These arms are–
Flo: I know.
Wyatt: They’re not, uh–
Flo: They’re not bad.
Wyatt: They’re not Carter’s, I guess. Carter.
Brooke: So Quinn will be working completely off-site?
Ridge: Yup. Not allowed in the building.
Brooke: Okay. Well, that’s one thing to be grateful for.
Ridge: That’s hurtful. You’re married to this and you only have one thing to be grateful for? Well, I guess I got to try a little harder.
Brooke: Come on. You know what I’m talking about. This whole Quinn mess.
Brooke: I prefer her to be out of our lives for good, but I guess as long as she’s banned from the building, that’ll be okay. I’m just glad that Carter agreed to that.
Ridge: So, you’re gonna be okay with it?
Ridge: All right. I’m gonna tell you what I told Carter and what I told my dad. This whole thing is awful. What happened to my dad and where he is now, it’s a really hard thing to deal with. But you know what? In a way, Carter did us all a favor. He showed this family. He showed everybody who Quinn really is.
Quinn: You’re serious? You talked Eric into keeping my line?
Carter: Uh-hmm. You’d have to work remotely, but…
Quinn: [ Scoffs ]
Carter: …It’s profitable. Always has been. I just had to remind him of that and tell him to put his emotions aside and make the best decision for Forrester.
Quinn: Thank you.
Carter: Of course.
Quinn: And thank you so much… ugh, was that wise, Carter?
Carter: For the company? Yeah.
Quinn: No. Was it wise for you? I mean, Eric is–is– is gonna wonder why you are defending me. He’s gonna question your motives. You have to be careful. I don’t want you to lose your job. You–you–you’ve built an amazing career at Forrester and–and–and I don’t want that to go away because of me. I’m not gonna allow that. I–I’m not worth that. I–
Carter: Stop, stop, stop. What did I tell you?
Quinn: You don’t want me saying that.
Carter: Never again because you are worth it, Quinn. You are.
Brooke: And that’s an odd way to put it, but you’re right. I mean, we all tried to warn Eric about that relationship from the very beginning. He was just blinded.
Ridge: Even when no one showed up at his wedding. Didn’t see it, didn’t wanna see it.
Brooke: Well, you’d get glimpses sometimes of her craziness and her selfishness. But he always found ways to forgive her but not now. I guess you’re right. We do owe Carter thanks. He was able to do what none of us could do. There’s no way that Eric’s gonna let Quinn worm her way back into his heart.
Brooke: Not after all of the damage she’s done, her terrible stunts. She’s gonna be alone, alone for the rest of her life. That woman is incapable of loving anybody but herself.
Quinn: [ Moans ] You have no idea how much I wanna keep kissing you right now.
Carter: I think I do. I think I have a good idea.
Quinn: [ Groans ]
Carter: It’s safe, Quinn. We’re alone.
Quinn: No, it’s not safe because one kiss is going to lead to another, and to another. We both know what’s gonna happen. We have to be strong. We have to avoid this… desire and temptation. I’m trying to protect you.
Carter: And I’m thankful. I am. Quinn, this is a lot harder than I thought it would be to forget about you, to forget about our connection.
Quinn: I know it’s hard, but we have to do this. You have to forget about me. There’s no other choice.
Carter: And what if I can’t?
Quinn: You have to.
Carter: You’re right.
Quinn: I know. I’m always right.
Quinn: You have a huge future at Forrester Creations. I’m not gonna let you ruin that. I mean, look, they need you there. Eric was gonna–he was just gonna throw away my jewelry line which would have been a huge financial loss to them, but you talked them out of it. See? And thank you, by the way. You know that line is– it’s like a second child to me.
Carter: Yeah. That’s why I fought so hard. I was determined to change his mind.
Quinn: [ Sighs ] Carter, Carter. I am so bad at expressing emotion, you know. I mean, especially vulnerable ones. I’m really good with anger and cynicism. I mean, I have got those down pat, but gratitude and affection is just–it’s not–it’s not in my wheelhouse. But with you… the way you look at me with those eyes, your calming touch and your sweet voice. You have to know the effect that you have on me. And I–I–I’ve walked into every relationship in my life ready for battle. You know, locked and loaded. I–I–I had my– my fists up, my chin up. But with you, I just– I just wanna– I just wanna lay down my sword and feel so free to be me. Oh. Ugh. Ugh. I’m going on. I’m going on and on about emotions. Oh, it must be–oh, you–you must be grossed out. I’m sorry.
Carter: You see me going anywhere? I’m where I wanna be… right here… with you. You may think you don’t show emotions when with everything you said, I’ve known it. I’ve seen it in your looks, in your smile, when we’re alone, wrapped in each other’s arms. And I feel… the same exact way. And I’ve never felt this way before. Is it love? Is it lust?
Quinn: I think it’s just us. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
