It's been a while since there's been enough inspiration to do a post in this category! Thanks, B&B!
But seriously. I hope the intention behind this was that Ridge is a ridiculous human. Unfortunately, though, it certainly was presented as a big revelation of truthiness.
Ridge (to Steffy): It goes back to my mom. Who she loved the most. That question was always around but never asked around the dinner table. It was always there. But my mom, she knew something that Dad and I did not. That I was her biological son, but not his. That colored everything. The way she treated us, the way we treated each other. And you know what, Stef? Looking back, I think my dad and I, we never had a chance.
Sweet mercy, you guys. As if it isn't bad enough that this show keeps going back to the "who is Mommy and Daddy's favorite?" well ABOUT MIDDLE-AGED ADULTS, we are still being subjected (umpteen years after this reveal) to this idiotic notion that Ridge is somehow less of a Forrester BECAUSE ADOPTION. Seriously?
Not to mention the obvious issue that Ridge and Rick didn't even grow up together. Poor Thorne.
What century is this? Can we bring Hillary B. Smith back as Dr. Barton to get Ridge and Rick some serious therapy? It's not really that fun to watch a competitive business story when the two brothers in competition are both jackasses. Who does one root for? Hell, at this point I'd probably stand up and cheer if somehow Quinn ended up the CEO.
