Eric Forrester is angry both with his son, Rick, and his ex-wife, Stephanie. Rick manipulated his way into the presidency of Forrester Creations, and now he is unable to work peaceably with the co-founder, Stephanie. Stephanie, for her part, has "slandered" Eric's son in the press, accusing Rick of being responsible for the death of Phoebe, Stephanie and Eric's granddaughter. Now, Stephanie and Rick have stormed into Eric's office, each demanding that the other be fired. Eric threatens to fire both of them if they can't mend their ways. Later, Brooke and Stephanie quarrel in Ridge's office. Ridge, who is still mourning his daughter, Phoebe, can't bear it. Meanwhile, up at Big Bear, Marcus leaves badly disappointed. Steffy turned down his proposal of marriage and then broke up with him. After Marcus is gone, Rick shows up.
