As a banker hounds him to close down some of the Forrester retail shops, Eric prepares for another showing of his classic line. The employees at Jackie M anxiously the broadcast, some hoping for Forrester's failure, others with half of their divided loyalties to the ailing fashion house. Thomas and Rick square off, with the former taunting the latter about Steffy, who seems to be extremely friendly with Marcus again. Bill Spencer comes early and speaks to Donna, who assures him that the show will be a success (despite Bill's hopes of its disaster), partly because the showstopper she is modeling is so sensational. Meanwhile, Pam has some devious plans for Donna's appearance on the runway.
