At the Forrester mansion, Eric isn’t happy with Quinn about the incident involving Stephanie’s portrait. Quinn protests she didn’t put her foot through it on purpose, and asks, “You believe me, don’t you?” She insists she holds Stephanie’s legacy in the highest regard. Eric believes her, but wishes they could agree on being more patient and understanding where Pam is concerned. Quinn complains that Pam hates her, and disrespects her every chance she gets. She rants about Pam wanting to take her portrait down. Eric argues it’s only for a few hours, can she not have compassion for Pam, who has lost almost everyone? Quinn hates that he’s disappointed in her and doesn’t want to fight, so she concedes Pam can get married there. Eric says it means a lot to him, and assures her she’s a big part of this family. Later, Pam arrives to find Quinn trying on a witch hat in the mirror. She informs her she’s getting Stephanie’s portrait restored, taking Quinn’s down, and getting married in a long ceremony there. Quinn snarks that she already told Eric she could have the damn wedding in her house. Pam hollers that this is the first time she will say her vows and be a bride…and Quinn’s calling it her ‘damn’ wedding?!
