He complains about Pam distracting him. He still can't draw. "I've got nothing." Rick enters and confronts Ridge. He pulls rank and demands to see his couture designs...now.

Rick wants something by the end of the day. Katie looks concerned. She finds Rick in his office and tries to reassure him about Ridge. She claims to have seen his designs. Rick asks if he's on the right track or if something else is going on. He presses Katie to tell him if there is a problem. In the other office, Ridge asks to see Caroline's sketches for couture.

Ridge tells her what he loves, and what needs to be changed. She asks him to help her. Ridge works over her shoulder to help alter a dress design.
