Eric Forrester Quotes

Stephanie: [about Brooke] Dammit, Eric, she's dragging Forrester through the gutter! Don't you care?
Eric Forrester: Of course I care! I don't want this to happen to our company!
Stephanie: [shouts] It's not about demeaning a *company*! It's about demeaning the name of *Forrester*! Can't you see that? Aren't you humiliated by that? My God, it's your name on the building! She's spitting on it! Can't you see what this is doing to me - she's doing the same thing to you!
Eric Forrester: This is not about you and your feelings towards Brooke! Now, her behaviour is reckless and irresponsible, I'll grant you that, but I cannot allow your personal feelings for it to- to tear this company apart! Now, if we don't show a united front here...
Stephanie: [cuts him off]
Stephanie: Don't you talk to me about any damn united front!

Eric Forrester: [the ownership of Forrester Creations is once again in question, so that lawyers are summoned] For the love of god, who is running this company?
Stephanie: I am!
Ridge: I should be.

The Bold and the Beautiful Quotes

Stephanie: You think this is all my fault? You have brought this on yourself.
Brooke: All I ever did, Stephanie, was to love Ridge.
Stephanie: And his father, and his brother, and your son-in-law. Is it any wonder Bridget is confused? I mean, is it any wonder your daughter would confuse natural feelings of respect and affection for romance? You have blurred the lines of socially-acceptable behaviour. And you stand here and you tell me you're proud. What are you proud of? Having your son-in-law's baby? I know what you're proud of. Chasing after a man whose wife's body is barely cold in the ground.

Brooke Logan Forrester is nobody's fool, nobody's.
