“My once very dear, close friend.”

This week’s Soaps.com Throwback Thursday brings “The Bold and the Beautiful” fans back to the late 1980s when Caroline Spencer was married to Thorne Forrester and Brooke Logan couldn’t help but rub her face in the fact that Caroline loved Ridge – Thorne’s brother, who Brooke was planning to marry…

Though Brooke and Ridge are divorced these days, years ago they were set to be married, much to Caroline’s dismay. Prior to Caroline Spencer’s death she found Brooke at the Forrester mansion and engaged in a catty conversation with her over a tape-recording. Brooke suggested Caroline accept her upcoming marriage to Ridge and went on to remind that Caroline was married to Thorne, trapped in an unhappy marriage and in love with her husband’s brother.

Caroline stayed silent as Brooke showered her with pity and claimed to feel sadness for her. If the tape had said something else, things might have turned out differently. However, it was only a matter of time before Caroline divorced Thorne anyway.

Do you remember what was on the tape?

The answer to last week’s poll: Ridge found an ashtray full of cigarette butts in Angela’s room.
