The Forresters gathered in the kitchen to clean up after Rick and Caroline's wedding, which had taken place after Thanksgiving dinner. Eric congratulated Hope for pulling off a great family dinner on a holiday. Liam, Wyatt, Quinn, Donna, Hope, and Aly gathered to do dishes.
Hope said that she had been proud of the way everyone had managed to get along. They all agreed the family had made progress on that front. Eric received a message on his phone and said he had to make a call. He apologized that everyone had to clean up, but he'd sent the staff home so they could enjoy the holiday with their own families. Eric excused himself.
Quinn told the rest of the crew to relax in the living room because she and Donna would finish the cleanup. Quinn laughed that she had not meant to speak for Donna, but Donna said it was fine.
After everyone left Donna and Quinn alone, Donna noted that Quinn had never married. Quinn said that she had devoted her life to talking care of her son. Donna was surprised that Quinn spent her life alone.
Donna congratulated Quinn because Wyatt had turned out to be a wonderful young man. Donna added that Wyatt seemed to be taken with Hope. Quinn said that Wyatt and Hope were a perfect match, but Donna noted that Wyatt would be a good match if Liam hadn't been in the picture. Quinn argued that Liam had had many chances.
Donna wondered if Quinn were attracted to Eric because Quinn clearly liked to be near him. Quinn teased that it bothered Donna, but Donna was unthreatened. Quinn said that she had learned that Eric had been the love of Donna's life. "Is," Donna corrected.
Later, Eric returned to the kitchen. He wondered if everyone had left. Donna said almost everyone had gone. Eric wondered if Quinn had left. Donna said Quinn seemed to have gone without saying goodbye.
Donna had made tea for Eric, and she promised to add honey for her honey bear. Eric laughed but declined the offer.
Donna said that she wanted some honey, and she squeezed some on Eric's finger and licked it off. She reminded Eric of what they had together at one time. She recalled memories of getting married in the house, much like Rick and Caroline had done. Eric agreed they were good memories. Eric said he was going to get comfortable and read. He thanked her for the tea.
Quinn had witnessed the entire exchange from the shadows. "What the hell was that," Quinn inquired. She noted that Donna had sucked honey off Eric's finger. "I'm sorry, but I have to call a slut a slut," she said.
Donna scoffed, but Quinn started on a rant of how Donna had slept her way to the top and then divorced Eric and sold her interest in the company to Bill for huge piles of money. Quinn sneered that Donna had nothing to do all day, so she played secretary but shared a desk with Pam. Quinn bragged that she had used her own talents and her intellect to achieve success.
Quinn warned that Eric's granddaughter was only one room away and could have entered to witness the disgusting display. Donna shot back that Quinn knew nothing about Donna or Donna's relationship with Eric. Donna added that Quinn had spied on a playful moment between Eric and Donna.
Quinn didn't let up. Quinn declared herself an essential part of Forrester and an important part of Eric's business. Donna boasted that she had been a Forrester for a long time, and she had seen many women come and go at Forrester.
Donna reminded Quinn that Quinn had done a commendable job in raising Wyatt. However, Donna added that there was something "really off about you." "You are nothing but trouble." Quinn said with a smirk.
In the living room, Hope, Liam, Wyatt, and Aly discussed that Rick had surprised them all with the wedding.
Liam said that Liam and Hope had attempted numerous weddings before Caroline and Rick had ever met. Wyatt teased that Liam had been distracted along the way with all the failed wedding attempts with Hope. Aly noted that Rick had even had a dress made for Caroline, and Liam said that Rick had been resourceful and had gotten a lot of help in pulling the entire thing off as a surprise.
Hope joked that the Forresters could throw weddings together overnight. Hope and Liam recalled their impromptu Malibu wedding at his home. Wyatt teased that it had been another unsuccessful wedding. He added that they had planned weddings "all umpteen times," but none of them had succeeded.
Wyatt noted that Brooke had been the wedding planner for most of them. Hope agreed. Wyatt added that when he married Hope, they would plan their own wedding.
Liam looked furious, and Hope said nothing. Wyatt thanked Hope for a wonderful day. Wyatt held one of Hope's hands, and Liam held the other. Hope removed both of her hands.
Wyatt said it had been a weird experience to see both of his parents at the same table. Wyatt credited Hope for her ability to pull off impossible tasks. Liam rolled his eyes.
Hope said that she was ready to leave. Wyatt and Liam offered to take her home, but Hope had her own car. Wyatt asked Hope to accompany him to return the diamond necklace to Charlie, but Hope said that she planned to return home to her mom's house alone.
Wyatt left, and Hope prepared to follow. Liam begged Hope not to go anywhere with Wyatt, and Hope promised that she would not go anywhere with Wyatt.
Aly told Liam that Hope was an amazing woman, but Aly had been surprised that Hope had treated Liam poorly. Aly noted that Liam was funny and cute. Liam laughed and thanked Aly.
In the guesthouse, Rick carried Caroline over the threshold and surprised her with candles and champagne. Caroline was surprised, and she thanked Rick for surprising her. She tenderly asked him to continue to surprise her throughout their marriage.
Rick liked the sound of "my wife." He teased that he was looking for his wife, and Caroline promised that Rick would never have to look far for his wife. "I will always be right by your side," she said.
Later, Caroline called her moms and told them that she was "beyond happy." After she had hung up, Rick wondered if her moms had been disappointed that they had missed the wedding. Caroline said they were happy for Rick and Caroline.
Rick wondered if Caroline regretted that they had not had a huge wedding with doves and caviar. Caroline said that she had always envisioned a huge wedding with all the fanfare, but she said that none if of it mattered because she had found what was important to her. "All that mattered was becoming your wife," she said.
Rick and Caroline danced, and a path of red rose petals covered the floor and created a path into the bedroom where a heart of rose petals decorated the bed. They fell onto the bed and made love.
Later, Caroline told Rick it had been the best day of her life. Rick promised to top the day, and she smiled and told him to make it a personal challenge. Rick said that he loved her smile. He called her Mrs. Forrester.
In the main house, Donna waited in the living room for Eric. He said that he'd thought everyone had left. Donna said she wanted to see him alone. She reminded him that the happiest days of her life had been in that house. He agreed.
Donna was glad that Thorne and Aly had moved in. Donna had worried about Eric being alone in the house. Donna encouraged Eric not to rush into anything with anyone like Quinn.
Donna said that Quinn had called Donna a slut. Donna thought that Quinn was dark and possibly dangerous. Eric seemed concerned. Donna worried that something could happen to her honey bear. They embraced and kissed awkwardly.
Quinn had been hiding in the shadows and watched the entire exchange with an evil look on her face. Eric went to bed, and Donna turned out the lights before she left. She passed by a framed picture of Eric and Donna, and Donna smiled.
Later, Donna heard something break, and she noticed the picture of Donna and Eric had been broken. Donna turned in fear as Quinn stood outside on the patio in the shadows.
