Then, THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL’s “The One, The Only Brooke Logan” storylines include:
On Monday, May 18, after their fairytale wedding, Eric (original cast member John McCook) whisks Brooke (original cast member Katherine Kelly Lang) away on their honeymoon in a beautiful hot air balloon and then on a romantic ride through the Southern California desert on horseback. Eric winds down their magical day by surprising his new bride with a lavish desert oasis where they will celebrate being Mr. and Mrs. Eric Forrester. Meanwhile, Ridge (then played by Ronn Moss) attempts to convince Stephanie (Susan Flannery) to let go of her animosity towards her ex-husband's sexy, young wife and get on with her life. The episode originally aired Jan. 9, 1991.
On Tuesday, May 19, after a run-in with Taylor (Hunter Tylo) over Ridge (then played by Moss), Brooke (Lang) concocts a plan to shock both Taylor and Stephanie (Flannery) at the press conference announcing Forrester Creations' newest line, "Brooke's Bedroom." With the help of Lauren Fenmore (Tracey Bregman), Brooke surprises the Forresters and the press, by appearing in sexy lingerie on top of a bed in the Forrester Showroom. Watching on the Fashion Channel from home, Taylor, Ridge's current wife, is mortified when Brooke describes the line as the "legacy of Ridge Forrester and Brooke Logan." The episode originally aired Dec. 11, 1998.
Then on Wednesday, May 20, in B&B’s special 5000th episode, Brooke (Lang) waits outside the Forresters’ Big Bear cabin for Ridge (then played by Ronn Moss), reluctant to go in by herself given her history with Stephanie (Susan Flannery).

Rounding out the week on Friday, May 22, Eric (McCook) gives Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) a rundown of what Brooke (Lang) has been up to since he’s been gone, but is careful not to mention Bill Spencer (Don Diamont). In an epic and romantic reunion, Brooke imagines seeing Ridge at the water staircase only to realize that it isn't a dream and he’s standing before her holding a single rose.
