After Thorne reads excerpts from the article about Ridge, Eric proudly toasts Ridge as the creative force behind Forrester's continued success. Rick asks Amber if she ever thought about working at Forrester. Amber tells him if she did, she'd like to try designing. Later, Rick compliments Amber when he catches her sketching a design. Amber fantasizes about having her own collection. Massimo points out to Stephanie that because of Brooke's controlling interest, Ridge will only inherit a fraction of Forrester when he could take over all of Massimo's business and fortune. Massimo wants to look out for Ridge's interests even if he can't have a relationship with him. He suggests Stephanie and Eric leave a larger percentage of stocks to Ridge as he is the one who will keep the company profitable for the rest of their heirs. When Stephanie is gone, Massimo puts a plan into action and has an envelope with Ridge's name on it. Eric refuses to consider Stephanie's suggestion that they leave Ridge more stock instead of dividing it evenly. Ridge looks into a box that has just been delivered for him.
