Zende: I don’t know. I don’t wanna lose the structure, but, uh, it looks too restrained, still.
Ridge: What are you doing? The design is perfect.
Zende: Maybe I can alter the lines, make it look a little bit more slim–
Ridge: Zende, zende, what’s our job? Our job is to highlight the individual, which is exactly what you did. Right, petra?
Petra: Nothing makes me feel more beautiful than a forrester.
Ridge: Oh, boy. Especially this forrester right here, huh?
Petra: Oh, no, was my flirting that obvious?
Zende: You were flirting with me?
Petra: Well, not if you’re still seeing paris.
Zende: Uh, no, actually, I’m– I’m not. Ris is seeing somebody else.
[ Carter sighing ]
Quinn: You shouldn’t be
talking like this, carter.
You’re caring, and handsome,
You’ve really made a difference
in my life at a time
when I didn’t think anyone
could make me feel better,
[ Paris gasping ]
Paris: Oh! There you are, my very, very handsome fiancé!
Quinn: I want you
to be truly happy.
Carter: You make me truly
happy, you know that.
You know how bad I want you.
But I can’t have you.
I can’t have us, it– it’s
a fantasy that can never be.
Quinn: That doesn’t mean
that you should propose
to paris. You don’t love her.
Not the way a man
is supposed to love
a woman he wants to spend
the rest of his life with.
Carter: The way I love you?
And I do love you, quinn.
I love you so damn much.
I’ll always love you.
Eric: Quinn, I’m thinking of ordering in for lunch. You want something?
Quinn: No, thank you. I’m not hungry.
Eric: You okay? You’re kinda quiet. It’s kinda of, uh, quiet quinn day here.
Quinn: Just thinking.
Eric: Yeah. About, um, the conversation we had the other day?
Quinn: I was just… thinking about how things can change. How you can make one mistake and it can change the direction of your entire life. Hohard it is, to find your way back. I was thinking about our marriage, and how it made me feel. I felt so sure of myself. Like I belonged here. I just– I want to feel that way again. And I hope you do, too.
Ridge: So, I don’t mean to pry, but, uh, but how are you doing with this whole paris thing?
Zende: I’m okay.
Ridge: Yeah. You’re going out?
Zende: Been out a couple days.
Ridge: Guy like you, you should be out every night.
Zende: Listen, uncle. It’s not really my thing. I’m looking for a more meaningful connection.
Ridge: Like what you had with paris. I’m here if you need to talk. I mean, I– I can see how much you miss her.
Quinn: Listen to me. Getting all heavy. You going to the club today?
Eric: I’m not sure. I haven’t decided yet.
Quinn: You get so much enjoyment from being there. I’m surprised you don’t go there every single day.
Grace: Take your lips off my daughter.
Paris: Mom, you– you can–
Grace: I’m your mother. So yes, I can. Take your hands off my girl.
Carter: You haven’t told her?
Paris: Well… um. Look, mom. I asked you to please just stay out of this.
Grace: Not when I know this isn’t what you want. This man is not serious about you. You cannot depend on him. The future you want is not going to be with carter.
Paris: It’s already happening. (Asaad) when I was little,
Ridge: So did you ever pick up anything between carter and paris?
Zende: No, you?
Ridge: No, I– grace came in here, [Indistinct], And I– I didn’t believe it.
Zende: Yeah, uh, let me guess, she asked you to stop it, huh?
Ridge: Mm hm. She definitely wasn’t as okay with it as you are.
Zende: “Okay with it” might be a bit of a stretch, ridge.
Ridge: Did carter misunderstand you?
Zende: No. I mean, I told them that I would not stand in their way, and I meant it. If carter can make paris happy, then I wish them all the best. But… thinking about them together is tough, especially remembering all the things that he said to me when I used to talk to him about her. I mean, he’s my friend, right?
Ridge: I know, I’m having trouble with that too.
Zende: I’m not going to rip on the guy.
Ridge: I’m not either. But I do have questions.
Eric: Quinn, if you’re wondering if you and I feel the same, the same way, I think we do.
Quinn: That’s good to hear.
Eric: Everyone wants to feel appreciated and secure, especially in their relationships.
Eric: But what about love? And passion? I mean, those are the two things that– that connect you to someone that only the two of you share. You can’t just– snap your fingers and– and– and make that happen no matter how much you want to. Building a lasting relationship it takes trust and it’s built over time.
Eric: I agree.
Quinn: Well, you’d think that would be obvious to everybody.
Eric: By everybody, you mean carter?
Eric: You mentioned carter, the other day. Um, there’s something that you’re concerned about, a decision he’s about to make.
Quinn: I don’t want to talk about carter. I don’t– I don’t wanna upset you.
Eric: No, no, no. That’s all right. I mean, if there’s something going on with carter, I want to know about it.
Grace: What’s that on your finger?
Paris: The most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen in my life. Carter asked me to marry him last night, and guess what I said? We want to get married right away.
Grace: Right away?
Paris: Yeah. Carter says he can pull this wedding off this week, so–
Grace: This week?
Carter: I’d marry your daughter today, if I could.
Grace: No, this is not happening.
Grace: Take the ring off, and give it back.
Grace: I won’t let you do this, paris.
Paris: I’m not asking for permission. I’m sharing my good news with you.
Grace: And what’s good about it? My beautiful daughter is giving her heart away to a man who’s done very little to earn it.
Paris: Carter and I kept our attraction private in the beginning–
Grace: Because you knew it was wrong.
Paris: Why can’t you just be happy for me?
Grace: I would be. If I thought carter was the right man for you, but he isn’T.
Paris: That’s not your decision to make.
Grace: Aren’t you going to say anything?
Carter: Grace, I know this may seem fast, but I’m certain this is the right path. I want to start our future with your daughter right now.
Grace: That’s what I need you to explain. What’s the rush to get my daughter to the altar?
With less moderate-to-severe
Grace: If you’re so certain about your future with paris, why not take your time? Give her a real courtship?
Paris: What does that even mean?
Grace: It means you deserve more than a ring and a promise, honey. Have you even talked about it? Have you made any plans? Or did this proposal just come out of the blue?
Paris: Carter loves me, and he wants me to be his wife. I am so sorry this is happening.
Carter: No, she’s trying to protect you. I understand.
Paris: She’s not being fair.
Grace: I just asked a simple question.
Paris: Carter answered it. If we both know what we wanna do, there’s no reason to wait.
Grace: Oh, I could think of quite a few reasons.
Paris: Carter. I need to speak to my mom in private.
Carter: It’s okay.
Grace: That man wants to run off and do a quickie wedding. Do you not have the sense to stop and think and ask yourself why? Come on, baby. This is wrong. This whole thing is wrong.
Quinn: It’s not my place to judge carter, or his personal decisions.
Eric: So this doesn’t involve the company?
Quinn: Well, I mean it– it could have ramifications for the company. I– I didn’t talk to you about it because I thought carter would come to his senses, but clearly he hasn’t!
Eric: Whoa, whoa, what do you mean, what’s he done? He took a ring that I was working on and he gave it to paris as an engagement ring.
Eric: He proposed?
Eric: Well– I know that– that zende and paris broke it off, I know that, but– but, uh, I had no idea that carter and paris felt this way about each other.
Quinn: I know. It’s surprising. That’s why I was so concerned. And– and, look, I- I know that– that paris, she’s obviously smitten with carter, but I– I don’t I don’t think that carter feels the same way about her.
Eric: Why? I mean, he proposed.
Quinn: Yes, but he just wants to move on with his life and– and meet someone. He wants to build a future with someone.
Eric: And you don’t think paris is the one? Has he said anything to you to make you question his commitment to paris? Do you think he’s not in love with her?
Carter: Got specs for the new sewing equipment.
Ridge: Hold on a second. Close the doors. I was just talking to zende about you.
Carter: How’s he doing?
Ridge: You know, he’s having trouble accepting your relationship with paris.
Carter: Hm. Well, he’s not the only one.
Ridge: Grace buckingham is not a fan.
Carter: Heh. No. And I’m sorry she dragged you into this–
Ridge: Let me ask you something. Why did I have to hear from her, that there’s a new woman in your life?
Carter: Well, I wasn’t sure how to tell you.
Ridge: Well, maybe you’re just not sure. Is that what you want? Really? A future with paris?
Carter: I have to, now.
Ridge: You have to, now? What does that mean?
Carter: I proposed to her. I asked paris to be my wife. I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
Grace: I wish I could be overjoyed for you. I really do.
Paris: You’re not even trying, though. You took one look at the ring and you said, “no, this is not happening.”
Grace: Because I’m concerned, honey. You know how I feel about carter. His history with your sister and with eric forrester’s wife! And now he proposes to you out of nowhere?
Paris: I get it. You want me to be with zende.
Grace: This isn’t going to end well. You have to trust me on this.
Paris: Carter is not dad.
Grace: I know my failed marriage with your father has a lot to do with it. And I wish I could have taught you and your sister what a loving and committed relationship looks like. But I wish you weren’t so blinded by big talk.
Paris: It’s not big talk. Carter really wants to be with me. I’m his future.
Grace: Honey, he’s saying all the right words. But I’m just not buying it. There is something else going on here.
Quinn: Do I think carter loves paris?
Eric: Well, yeah, of course he does. He proposed to her.
Quinn: Yeah. That’s a– it’s usually a pretty good indication.
Eric: Yeah, it’s just surprising at how fast it was, how quickly it happened.
Quinn: Yeah, that’s what I mean. I mean, paris is– is getting out of one relationship and jumping into a marriage.
Eric: Well, it’s pretty impulsive. I know it– it seems that way, but, uh, carter has been looking for a– a relationship and love for a very long time, and if he– he thinks he’s found it with paris, then good, then good. I’m glad he’s going for it.
Quinn: Yeah, well, love can make you do some pretty crazy, reckless things.
Eric: Yeah, it can. But what better reason than, uh, than love to do something reckless? So if this works out between the two of them, this is where it’s going, then good for them. I’m happy. I hope it works out.
Ridge: You proposed to paris? You kidding me?
Carter: Why– why? Why would I kid about that?
Ridge: Uh– no one even knows that you’re dating.
Carter: We kept our relationship private.
Ridge: You kept it secret.
Carter: Okay, well, not anymore.
Ridge: Not anymore. Because you are getting married. What are you– she was with zende five minutes ago, and now you– you guys– what? You’ve been dating a couple of weeks? What’s–
Carter: What’s the matter? Why should we wait? For what? We’re not gonna change. What’s gonna change in a month? In a year? Not my feelings. Not what I want, ridge. That’s why I’m proposing. I want to move on. I want to move forward. I wanna start living a life that makes sense.
Ridge: This makes sense?
Carter: Yes. Yes, it does. It’s the first thing in a very long time. And you know what? I’m– I’m not debating with you. I get why grace and zende may have issues, but I was counting on my best friend to be supportive.
Ridge: I am going to be supportive. I’ll support you as soon as I understand what it is that you’re doing. You’ve been telling me for years you’re waiting for this one woman, the woman that makes your heart skip a beat. The woman that you see in your dreams. Is that paris? Is it? She’s the love of your life?
Eric: It’s okay, quinn. I know you still care about carter. And you’re worried. You don’t think that paris is the woman he truly loves?
Ridge: Paris is a beautiful young woman and she’s kind. And I– I know you respect her. But I know you don’t love her. Cause I know what you look like when you’re in love. I’ve seen that on you. I’ve seen you with my father’s wife. You love quinn.
