- "That's because when you've hit rock bottom, you have to learn how to claw your way back up. It's only after you've lost everything that you're free to do anything. You don't really care how long it takes any more. You don't really have anything to lose, so you take whatever you want. And right now, I'm taking back Ridge."
- —Taylor to Brooke
She is regarded by Brooke Logan as needing a shrink herself, despite her status as a doctor. However, Taylor has proven them wrong constantly with her formidable knowledge of psychology, and her remarkably bringing Katie back from postpartum depression. Taylor has been with Blake Hayes, Nick Marone and Whip Jones, although she has never shaken her love for Ridge.
After losing her daughter Phoebe Forrester, Taylor briefly emotionally reunites with Ridge, but he later returns to Brooke. Taylor eventually acknowledges that she will never love anyone like she loves Ridge. She tries to keep Steffy from repeating the cycle with Liam.
