Brooke: It's time. It's time to make a decision and live with the consequences.

Eric: Honey, this man can promise you the world but what is he really capable of delivering?

Brooke: He's involved with amber, and that's never going to change.

Deacon: I can't promise you the world, Bridget. But what I can tell you is that everything that's happened here has changed me. It's made me a better man. You know, I -- I couldn't have said this before, when we got married, but I can say it now... I promise you that I can be a loyal and devoted husband to you. You see, I want to be that man. And I love you, Bridget.

Brooke: Is that you were -- is that what you were saying to amber in the other room? That you love her?

Eric: Deacon, you want Amber, you'll always want her. My daughter is just a substitution to be used until amber comes around.

Deacon: Why do I want your daughter? I can see my son any time I want. It's not about your money. I don't want your money. I love that woman. She has more guts and more intelligence and more compassion than all of us put together. And I don't want to lose her. She's if she's willing to take me back.


Ridge: She's not willing. Come on, Bridget, let's go. Enough talk! Come on, Brooke, dad...

Bridget: This isn't your decision. This is my decision. Dad... I love you. But Deacon is my husband and I'm going home with him.

Eric: No!

Ridge: Come on, Bridget, please calm down.

Bridget: Stop it! This is my life. You cannot live it for me. This man is fighting for me. That means he wants me. And I want him. I have to give this a chance. Now we're not going to talk about this again. But I do have something to say to you, Amber...


Antonio: Check. You have to stop doing this. You have to. You don't have AIDS. You don't have to get tested. I would have known by now, no matter what Dr. Hayes says. I got to get this notion out of my mind. I'm not going to let it come between me and Kristen. Kristen. (Laughs)

Kristen: What?

Antonio: I was just thinking about you.

Kristen: And here I am.

Antonio: And look at you! Just look at you! You are amazing!

Kristen: Oh, just hold me. Tell me everything's going to be all right.

Antonio: Nothing's changed.

Kristen: Tony, I meant what I said the other night. You can tell me anything. I have never shared this much of myself with anyone before you. And I love the feeling. To know that there's one person in this world that you can tell your deepest, darkest secrets to. You know what that is? Intimacy. You're the first man that I have been this intimate with -- well, in every way but one.

Antonio: I want that too.

Kristen: I hope so. I really hope so.

Antonio: Thank you.

Kristen: You're moving too fast for me?

Antonio: No. Well, maybe just a little. But just a little bit.

Kristen: You weren't ready for that?

Antonio: Believe me, Kristen, I'm always ready for that. It's just that I think we should wait.

Kristen: Okay.

Antonio: We've both had relationships before, right?

Kristen: Well, I suspect you've had a few more than i have.

Antonio: Maybe. This is different. Look, when a guy is looking for sex, it's all about the man. You know? It's all about what he wants, what he needs. But once he gets it, things change. I mean, the wonder, the mystery, the desire to find out every little thing. The romance, the falling in love, all these things, they made away. I don't want that happening with us. I want to know every little detail about you. I want to drink you in. I want to know your essence. That's why I don't want to rush into things. It's not that I don't want to make love to you. But --

Kristen: But you want to get to know me first. That is so sweet. Well, it is. Does it threaten you? Because I think it's wonderful.

Antonio: Just don't go on feeling too safe around me.

Kristen: Oh, I wouldn't do that. Not until you get to know me. Every detail, my essence, drink me in. All that.

Antonio: Come with me.

Antonio: You're not tempting me, you're teasing me. It's not wise to tease a proud man, especially when he's talking about issues to do with passion.

Kristen: Yeah? So what are you going to do about it?

Kristen: Oh, it isn't fair, is it? Teasing you in a public place?

Antonio: It's not fair at all.


Bridget: I want to hear it from you, Amber. I want you to say it in front of my family, my husband and me.

Amber: Bridget, I am staying with Rick. I think I've made myself perfectly clear.

Bridget: I'm not talking about Rick, amber; I'm talking about Deacon.

Amber: Just wait a minute. I never encouraged Deacon.

Bridget: Hanging out on my deck in a bikini?

Amber: I was swimming with my son!

Bridget: Right, right. I think you know exactly what you were doing. So here's the deal: I'm married to Deacon, amber, and you're going to respect that. I really don't want to have to worry about you hitting on my husband every time my back is turned. Do I make myself clear? I didn't hear you, amber. I want you to say it loud and clear, in front of witnesses so you won't be able to weasel out of it. I want to hear you say, "it's ended forever".

Amber: It's ended forever.

Bridget: Forever.

Brooke: I don't believe that.

Bridget: Well you're going to have to, Mom. All of you are going to have to, because I need my family to support this marriage. Deacon, will you please take me home.

Eric: Deacon, if you don't mind, I'd like to drive my daughter home.

Bridget: Dad...

Deacon: It's okay, baby. Why don't you go ahead. I'll catch up with you at the house.


Kristen: This is delicious.

Antonio: You like it?

Kristen: Mm-hmm.

Antonio: You should try my mom's cooking. That is really good.

Kristen: Well maybe some day I'll get to.

Antonio: Would you like that?

Kristen: Well, of course.

Antonio: I think that she would adore you.

Kristen: Really?

Antonio: But only half as much as I do.

Kristen: So I guess the other night was just our first tiff, right? No big deal?

Antonio: No big deal.




Amber: Bridget was released.

Rick: I know. I just called.

Amber: How's little "d"? I mean little Eric? Too much dealing with Deacon today.

Rick: He's asleep.

Amber: Yeah. I'm pretty wasted myself.

Rick: Hey, do you think we could talk for a little while before we go to bed?

Amber: Sure.

Rick: Nothing heavy, I just need to connect.

Deacon: I went ahead and made some coffee. I felt we all had a tough day, we could use some maybe.

Eric: Save, it Deacon.

Bridget: Daddy, please...

Deacon: Look, I don't expect any of you to cut me any slack but I'm not getting down on my hands and knees anyway. That's not my style. But I did ask for forgiveness from one person, and she gave it from me whether I deserved it or not. I guess from here on out actions will have to speak louder than words. I could sit here and say to you, "yeah, I'm going to be the greatest husband to Bridget and you're not going to believe it." Frankly if you did, you would Be… But what I can tell you is this... Each and every day you're going to watch how I take care of her and how good I'm going to be to her, and how I make Bridget the center of my universe. I promise that everything that I have been saying here today is true. And I'm going to be the kind of husband that she deserves.

Eric: Your mother and I are just a phone call away.

Ridge: You do anything to hurt her, anything at all, you'll be dealing with me. Do you understand what I'm saying?

Deacon: Yeah.

Ridge: Good. You better.

Deacon: Hey, they'll come around. I'm going to make it impossible for them not to.

Bridget: It's not my parents I'm thinking about. It's you and me, Deacon. I'm not out to prove anything to anyone. All I care about is you and me.

Deacon: That's all I care about too.

Bridget: Then you'll understand what I'm about to say. I'm going to trust you, Deacon. That's the only way I can stay in this marriage, is if I can trust my husband. But that doesn't mean there's not a price to pay for what you did to me. And it's a high price.

Deacon: Just name it. I'll make it up to you any way I can.

Bridget: No, it's not about making it up to me. You said things that I'll never be able to forget. And there's nothing you can do to take that away. Look at me. Deacon, look at me. The person looking at you right now loves you more than anyone's ever loved you. That's why I stayed. Not because I'm naive or stupid or a sucker. I love you. And I believe in the power of those vows we took. So I'm going to take you at your word. But I need you to understand... My heart is in your hands. My heart and my life.

Deacon: I promise you I will never betray you.


Amber: I feel like the bad guy, Rick. If I left you, if I gave Deacon and your mom what they wanted, Bridget would be home safe and sound. Only I can't do that.

Rick: I hope not.

Amber: You don't have to hope. I'd never leave you.

Rick: I know you love me, amber much. I know you better than anyone. Which is why I can say this, There's always been sparks between you and Deacon. I saw it the first time you guys met each other. It's not something that you can hide.

Amber: What are you saying?

Rick: Exactly what I have been saying since the beginning. I just want you to be happy, amber. And I believe that you'll be happy with me. But if -- if for any reason you would be happier with somebody else, I just want you to tell me.

Amber: Rick! I'd never need more than you. Never, never, never.

Rick: I hope so. But I want you to promise me something... That if -- if anything changes, if you start dealing differently, I want you to promise me that you will tell me right away.

Amber: Things will never change for us. I can promise you that.

Amber: Goodbye, Deacon.
