As Massimo sat in his office and wondered if Ridge had received his package, Sally arrived and asked what she should wear for their date that evening. Massimo had forgotten he was taking Sally out. She understood and could tell that he had lots on his mind. Massimo said he had talked to Stephanie and learned that Eric had not planned very well for his children‘s future and that Ridge would never be the head of Forrester Creations. Sally begged Massimo not to get involved in the Forrester family business, but Massimo feared he would have to look out for his son‘s welfare because no one else was going to do it.In his office at Forrester Creations, Ridge opened the mysterious box and found it contained the world‘s largest pie pan with a tiny slice of apple pie in it. The attached note said "This is your slice of the Forrester pie. Don‘t settle for less than you deserve." Ridge was puzzled by the gift. His puzzlement was interrupted by Taylor. Taylor explained how she had purchased a new SUV that morning. Ridge was surprised that she had made such a major purchase without consulting him. She said that it wasn‘t like they couldn‘t afford it, he was the heir apparent to Forrester. That made Ridge think about the mysterious gift. Taylor thought it was some sort of marketing gimmick and he‘d be receiving a call from a salesman that afternoon. Taylor left to spend more money. Alone, Ridge was bothered by his cryptic gift.Over in Eric‘s office, he and Stephanie continued to argue about Ridge‘s share of the Forrester legacy. Brooke walked in during the conversation. Stephanie asked her what she thought of all the children inheriting equal stock from Stephanie and Eric. While Brooke felt that Ridge had indeed made a larger contribution to the company, she didn‘t think it was fair to give him more stock than the other children. Stephanie said that she was afraid Ridge would be disrespected if he wasn‘t given a bigger share and might take a job elsewhere or start his own design house. Then the company would be worth nothing to anyone. Eric didn‘t think that Ridge would desert the family business. Stephanie grew more frustrated when Ridge walked into the office. He announced that he wanted to discuss the future of Forrester Creations.
