Deacon: Did you just say "Ridge"?

Brooke: No.

Deacon: Brooke, I heard you.

Brooke: All right, yes, I did say that, but --

Deacon: Wait. This is the guy that you have been raving about? This is the guy that really gets you hot, the one that -- what did you say? The first thing you think about in the morning and the last thing you think about at night? It's not Thorne? It's not your husband at all. It's his brother. Ridge!


Ridge: You know, mother, maybe Thorne isn't the one with the blinders on where Brooke's concerned.

Stephanie: Your brother is a proud man. If there was anything wrong with his marriage he wouldn't want anyone to know about it. Especially you.

Ridge: Thorne's marriage isn't in trouble.

Stephanie: Not yet.

Ridge: Why do you have to be like this all the time? Why do you have to take a pessimistic route?

Stephanie: I'm being realistic.

Ridge: Thorne and Brooke went through hell to be together.

Stephanie: Your father walked out an a 25-year marriage, sacrificed the respect of his family and his reputation for what? To have you. And here we are all these years later and you're both married to totally different people.

Ridge: We all went on with it and survived. We got on with our life, except you.

Stephanie: If you could really see the woman for what she is, you would do the same thing as me. I will get on with my life as soon as she's out of my life.


Thorne: Ridge? No, not Ridge!

Brooke: Deacon, listen to me!

Deacon: No, it's all right. I understand. All this talk about passion and soul mates, I thought you were talking about your husband. But you were talking about the great love of your life... Ridge.

Brooke: No, no, you don't understand.

Deacon: Yeah, I do. All your life you wanted this one man. And you had him for a while and then you lost him. Like me and Amber. You're afraid that my feelings for Amber won't go away like yours for Ridge haven't. That's it, isn't it?

Brooke: We're not talking about my relationships. We're talking about yours.

Deacon: Yeah. But the reason you're so upset is that you don't want Bridget to make the same mistakes that you made.

Brooke: I never said that.

Deacon: Sure you did. All this talk with waiting for the right man, holding on for the real thing, it seems to me, Brooke, that you didn't do that.

Brooke: You have to understand something... Thorne Forrester is the kindest, most compassionate man that I have ever met and I love him very much.

Deacon: And I love Bridget. But you told me that she deserves to be -- what was it? Adored. To have passion. To feel the way that you felt when you were with Ridge.

Brooke: She deserves to be with someone who is not going to be pining after another woman.

Deacon: The way that you're pining after Ridge.

Brooke: Will you stop! Look, don't turn this around on me. Let's focus on your marriage, not mine.

Deacon: Wait a minute, why is it fair for you to dissect my life and I can't ask you any questions about yours?

Brooke: My personal life is not the issue here.

Deacon: It is the issue! It's exactly the issue. Come on! You're trying to reunite me and Amber, the undeniable passion that we feel and the life that Bridget will be forced to live with me. What do they call that in psychology? There's a term for this. Projection. You're projecting your life on to me.

Brooke: Don't you dare mock me! I'm taking an enormous risk talking to you here. I just don't know how else to get through to you. Oh, God, Deacon, look! This is really serious. You can't breathe a word of this to anybody. I don't want this to get back to Thorne. He just wouldn't understand. He's a good man. I don't want to hurt him.

Deacon: You settled for Thorne. You want Ridge but you settled for Thorne. And you're worried that your daughter is going to settle for less than she deserves. Isn't that right? That's what this is all about. Isn't it, Brooke?


Ridge: Mother, nobody has to be on guard with Brooke. She's not the enemy anymore. She and Thorne are perfectly happy.

Stephanie: I wish I could believe that.

Ridge: Why can't you? Is it so hard to believe she could be in love with my brother? Thorne's an amazing guy. He's everything that Brooke would want in a man.

Stephanie: He's not you.

Ridge: Don't start! Don't start!

Stephanie: You know, everybody thinks it's going to be different this time, that Brooke has matured. That they're going to stay married and live happily ever after till death do them part. Well, I don't believe that. You know what I think? She's just married to another Forrester! Nothing has changed. But she's got me, hasn't she? I have to be civil and I have to be cordial because of your brother. And especially because of the children. Because they love her. And they look up to her, and I certainly would never do anything that would jeopardize those relationships. But I'm telling you, no matter how happy she appears at this moment, there's a chance -- a real chance, I believe -- that one day she's going to just break your brother's heart.


Thorne: Tell him, Brooke. Tell Deacon it's me you want, not Ridge. Me!

Brooke: I'm not going to answer that question.

Deacon: It's true, isn't it? You settled for Thorne.

Brooke: I don't want to talk about Thorne.

Deacon: I don't blame you. It must be uncomfortable, the guilt, the pent-up frustration.

Brooke: I haven't done anything.

Deacon: But you've been thinking about it. What was it you said? Ridge is always on your mind? He's the last thing you think about at night and the first thing you think about in the morning? It's got to be hard working with him, though, huh? Keeping your focus during those meetings?

Brooke: Come on, Deacon, don't be crass.

Deacon: That's what you think is going to happen between me and Amber, huh?

Brooke: I know that you two have powerful chemistry.

Deacon: That's something that you know a lot about, isn't it?

Brooke: I've seen the energy between you two, and I know that you feel it. Pretty soon Amber's going to feel it too. And you know what's going to happen then?

Deacon: Do you think I would cheat on your daughter?

Brooke: I think you should end the marriage before you face this dilemma.

Deacon: Brooke, what would you do if you found out that Ridge still had feelings for you?

Brooke: Look, this isn't about me. I'm trying to get you to feel the gravity of the situation here. You've hurt Bridget once. If you hurt her again she's going to hate you forever.

Deacon: What are you telling me? If we could put a solid life together, don't do it?

Brooke: I'm telling you that if you really love her, end the marriage now.

Deacon: What happens if Amber never leaves Rick? Then Bridget and I are alone.

Brooke: There are worse things than being alone. Bridget is second best to you. She is a substitute. You don't want to settle for that!

Deacon: You settled for Thorne. I mean, come on, he's not your soul mate. Seems to me you guys have managed to put together a pretty good life. Why couldn't we do the same?

Brooke: Deacon, you can do better than that. Listen to me, if you don't end your marriage now with Bridget and go after Amber, you're going to regret it for the rest of your life.


Megan: Thorne, Thorne, I've been looking for you. Curtis called from the cabin. He and his wife will have it ready for you. And his alterations are done on the dress. Pick it up when you're ready.

Thorne: I've got to go.

Deacon: Oh, man!

Brooke: I'm telling you, Deacon, don't do this. Don't give up on Amber.

Deacon: Are you telling me that I'm going to regret it?

Brooke: Yes, you will.

Deacon: What about you? Do you regret marrying Thorne?

Brooke: No.

Deacon: So it's okay for you to be in a passionless marriage but it's not okay for me.

Brooke: Thorne and I have known each other for a very long time.

Deacon: What difference does it mean?

Brooke: A strong marriage has a foundation. Thorne and I have history. You and Bridget don't.

Deacon: It seems to me that you and Ridge have some history.

Brooke: You know, I don't want to hear another word about that. I love my husband.

Deacon: But he's not your soul mate?


Brooke: And Bridget isn't yours. I mean it, Deacon; please listen to what I have to say. Take my advice. Go after Amber. And do what's best for you and Bridget. End this marriage now!

Megan: Brooke, I was just down with Henry and we -- I'm sorry, the door was open.

Brooke: Oh, no, it's all right, Megan, Deacon was just leaving. Give Bridget my love.

Megan: Are you all right?

Brooke: Yeah. It's just been one of those days. Gosh! Do you have any aspirin or something?

Megan: No. But I have something better.

Brooke: A dress?

Megan: Put it on. I guarantee your day will improve dramatically.

Brooke: I really don't have time.

Megan: I've cleared your schedule.

Brooke: Why?

Megan: Because there's a limo waiting downstairs to take you to big bear. So chop chop, Cinderella. Don't keep prince charming waiting.

Brooke: Thorne did this?

Megan: He knows you've been upset about Bridget. He planned this.

Brooke: I'm so swamped. What about Bridget? I told her if she needed to reach me, I'd be here.

Megan: Go, go, trust me! You need this. Go! Have a good time.

Hey, Julia, what's up?

I don't know. The delivery guy said it was for Thorne but the card says it's for Brooke.

Megan: Let me see the invoice. It's jewelry.

Really? It's pretty heavy.

Megan: I can't believe Thorne forgot this! Julia, do you think you can handle things by yourself for the rest of the day?

Megan: Sure.

Where are you going?

Megan: I have to deliver this package up to Big Bear.


Thorne: No! No, I don't believe it. It's not true. No, it's not true!

Deacon: This is the guy that you have been raving about? This is the guy that really gets you hot? The one that's the first thing you think about in the morning, and the last thing you think about at night? It's not Thorne. It's not Thorne, Thorne, Thorne! It's Ridge, Ridge, Ridge that's always on your mind.

Brooke: There are worse things.

Deacon: You want Ridge. You want Ridge. You settled for Thorne. You settled for Thorne.

Brooke: No one, Deacon, no one will ever replace this man in my heart.

Deacon: You settled for Thorne. The man that you love is Ridge. Ridge.

Brooke: No one will ever replace this man in my heart.

Deacon: The man who you love, love, love, is Ridge, is Ridge, is Ridge.

Thorne: No! No, it's not Ridge! No!

You know, Curtis, it's getting late. Maybe we should call Mr. Forrester's cell phone.

I think you're right. Sounds like a car on the drive.

Who is it?

It's him.

Mr. Forrester, we were beginning to get mothered worried. Doris didn't want to put the food out until you arrived.

If Mrs. Forrester is going to be a while I'll leave it in the kitchen.

Mr. Forrester? Are you all right?

Thorne: Yeah. I'm fine. You -- you can go now.

I hope Mrs. Forrester wasn't held up at the office.

No, she'll be here.

And you're sure you don't want me to stay and serve dinner?

No. You can go.

Thorne: I want to be alone with my wife.


Ridge: Brooke?

Brooke: Oh, Ridge! I'm so glad you're here.

Ridge: Wow!

Brooke: You like it?

Ridge: You look amazing.

Brooke: Well, don't just stand there. Get over here and help me zip this up. I can't do it.

Ridge: I saw your limo downstairs.

Brooke: Yeah. Apparently Thorne has a romantic evening planned for the both of us.

Ridge: Well, judging by this dress, you better pack an overnight bag.

Brooke: I don't think I'll be able to stay overnight.

Ridge: According to what he might be setting up here, you might not have a choice.

Brooke: You Forrester men, you always seem to get what you want. I better go.

Ridge: Brooke, wait a minute here. I have something I want to give you before you leave. Take off your dress.

Brooke: What!

Ridge: Take off your dress. Put on this.


Thorne: Ridge! All this time it's been Ridge. My God, Brooke, how could you do this to me? How could you do this to me? From the beginning it's been Ridge! You just settled for me.

(Knock at door)

Megan: Thorne, hi. I can't believe I made it.

Thorne: Megan, what are you doing here?

Megan: I tried you on your cell phone but it wasn't working.

Thorne: Brooke's not coming?

Megan: Sure she is. I can't stay but I wanted to make sure you got this. You left the office before it was delivered.

Thorne: Yeah, I forgot.

Megan: You did get it for Brooke, didn't you?

Thorne: Mm-hmm. Yeah. Yeah, I did!

Megan: Thorne, what are you doing?

Thorne: She doesn't want it, Megan! She doesn't want my love. She doesn't want me!

Megan: Stop it! What is wrong with you?

Thorne: Oh God, Oh, she confides in you. Did she tell you too?

Megan: Tell me what?

Thorne: The truth Megan. The truth!

Megan: Look, I don't know what you're even talking about.

Thorne: God, I sacrificed. I sacrificed everything- my relationship with my family, my reputation. Oh God. I destroyed my marriage to Macy, because I believed in us. I thought that this was it, but it wasn't. No it wasn't not for Brooke. You see, because Brooke didn't really want me. She just settled for me. I was the consolation prize.

Megan: No Thorne, You're totally off base.

Thorne: No, I heard her Megan. I heard her say it She doesn't want me. No! Not me! You see, Brooke is in love with my brother. My brother! My wife is in love with Ridge. !
