Taylor: Brooke, are you sure you want to do this?

Brooke: I've already talked to the pilot. Going to Paris.

Taylor: I understand you want to stop the rumors. But don't you want to stay and patch things up with Thorne?

Brooke: I may have lost my husband, but I'm certainly not going to lose control of this company.

Taylor: What if you haven't lost Thorne? Maybe if you just talk to him again. Brooke, just tell him that there's nothing going on between you and Ridge.


Stephanie: It's too late for that. Meagan, will you excuse us too moment, please?

Brooke: Don't do that again. You can say what you want to your family, but don't you dare disrespect me in this office. I'm still your CEO.

Stephanie: Some CEO, playing the family and this company through another one of your sex scandals. No wonder everyone has lost respect for you. I just thank God Thorne figured out exactly what was going on before too much damage was done.


Every day I live without you is like I day I might as well not have lived at all. I love you. And I will always love only you.

Taylor: Here's my absent-minded genius.

Ridge: Hey, doc, what brings you do you here?

Taylor: I'm saving your butt.

Ridge: My butt needs saving? Oh, the notes for the meeting.

Taylor: You left these on the coffee table.

Ridge: Thank you. Well, hey, if you have some more time, I can lock the door.

Taylor: You are a bad, bad man. Tempting me when all these patients need to see me.

Ridge: Well, then you'll have to take a rain check. Maybe we can put the kids to bed early and mommy and daddy can have a little time to themselves.

Taylor: You really are being absent minded, your mother's tonight, the party.

Ridge: Oh, keep that rain check handy then. You and I can sneak off somewhere during the party.

Taylor: I'll see you tonight.

Ridge: Okay.

Taylor: Have a good day.


Brooke: I don't have time for this.

Stephanie: That's right. You're leaving for Paris. When do you go?

Brooke: Not soon enough for you.

Stephanie: You're the one that started this fire, so you're the one that has to put it out book Brooke oh, that's right. Thorne gives up on this relationship, he annuls the marriage and it's all my fault.

Stephanie: He would never have married you if he had any idea you had such strong feelings for Ridge. The marriage was a mistake from the beginning. And everyone's going to know that sooner or later.

Brooke: Well, so what are you going to do? Hold a press conference?

Stephanie: No, we're going to have a little party at the house tonight. That's what I wanted to talk to you about.

Brooke: You came here to give me a personal invitation.

Stephanie: Quite the contrary. I want to make sure you understand that you're not welcome at any family function. Your children are, of course. But I don't want you to ever set foot in my house again.


Antonio: Taylor, I need to talk to you.

Receptionist: I told you, she hasn't come in yet. You need to wait in the lobby.

Antonio: I'll wait right here.

Receptionist: Sir, you can't do this. She'll be here any minute, I'm sure. Doctor, I tried to stop him, I'm sorry.

Taylor: It's all right, I'll take it from here. Don't worry.

Antonio: I can't do it.

Taylor: Tony, what is going on.

Antonio: Look at me, I can't sleep, I can't eat, I can't work. I can't live like this. I mean, I can't.

Antonio: I feel like I'm going crazy, Taylor. My mind is rising a million miles a minute. I need something. You have to give me something.

Taylor: Tony, I really don't want to give you a prescription until we've talked to the doctor about your treatment plan.

Antonio: I need something now. I'm freaking tout.

Taylor: Listen to me. Are you not going crazy. I told you, it is completely normal to feel anxious, especially under these circumstances. In fact, I would be more concerned if you weren't.

Antonio: This is normal? This is not normal. I can't eat, I can't sleep. All I do I think about Kristen, the time that I was kissing her. The time that we were almost together. I need help, dr. Hayes.

Taylor: You need to tell her you are HIV-positive.

Antonio: And then what?

Taylor: And then I recommend that she get tested.

Antonio: And then? When her results come back negative, then what do I do?

Taylor: I can't tell you that.

 (Knock on door)

Taylor: Excuse me.

Taylor: Doctor, thank you, I'm so sorry I interrupted you.

Antonio: Oh, Dr. Craig, thank God. Look, I thought that I could handle this, but I can't.

Taylor: Tony feels he needs a prescription to alleviate his anxiety. He's very worried about his girlfriend.

Dr. Craig: Have you told her yet?

Antonio: No. I want to, but I feel like I'm paralyzed.

Taylor: That's why I asked dr. Craig to some see you right now.

Dr. Craig: Dr. Hayes tells me you're a very am business man.

Antonio: I was, but now all I can think about is this damned disease.

Dr. Craig: That's understandable.

Antonio: I don't understand it. A few weeks ago, I'm starting a great new career, I am falling in love with this beautiful, wonderful woman. I have a bright future ahead of me. And now this? I mean, how can this happen, huh?

Dr. Craig: Do you feel like you've been ambushed?

Antonio: Yes.

Dr. Craig: Then it's time to fight back.


Stephanie: You've burned your bridges with every member of this family. There's no place left for you here. When you get to Paris, if you have any sense, you'll just stay there.

Brooke: My children are here.

Stephanie: Your children are adults.

Brooke: Bridget needs me.

Stephanie: Her father and I can take care of her.

Brooke: She's my daughter.

Stephanie: And isn't that the sad part of it? You're going to subject her to some more of these sex scandals of yours? The European tabloids are filled with speculation about you and Ridge. How long do you think it's going to be before the American press picks up on it.

Brooke: So that's what this is all about. You don't care about Bridget. You're worried about what's going to happen between Ridge and me.

Stephanie: Nothing is going to happen between the two of you.

Brooke: You don't pity me. You're happy that my marriage fell apart.

Stephanie: No, I'm not. It's a tragedy. It's a real tragedy, but it's one that could have been avoided if you'd been honest from the beginning.

Brooke: Well, maybe you're right. Maybe I never should have married Thorne. I mean, a part of me always knew that I loved Ridge. But I thought I could overcome it. And that Thorne and I would be happy together: And we were.

Stephanie: Until he found out you never really loved him.

Brooke: No, but see, that's what you don't understand. I do love him. The only problem was that I thought that we could work this out and make it work testify step it didn't work, did it? It failed. God, you've blown every opportunity to worm your way into this family.

Brooke: I don't need this. Get out!

Stephanie: No one here has any sympathy for you. And there's no one left for you to seduce, is there?

Brooke: Fine, if you don't leave, I will.

Stephanie: So my point being, your life with the Forrester's is over.

Brooke: You're wrong, Stephanie. My life with the Foresters is just beginning. And I'm going to do it right this time. I'm going to start over with Ridge.


Kristin: Mom.

Stephanie: Oh, hi, honey, if you're looking for Brooke, I'm sorry, she just left.

Kristin: No, I was looking for you. Meagan said I might find you here. Do you have a minute?

Stephanie: Yeah, sure. What's up.

Kristin: We need your opinion. Which of these dresses should I wear to the party tonight?

Stephanie: Oh, honey, it's not formal. We're just having dinner by the pool.

Kristin: I know, but I haven't seen Tony for a few days, so I wanted to look really nice for him.

Stephanie: A few days. Right. I guess you must really miss him.

Kristen: I do. Don't worry. Nothing is wrong. He's just been busy with work.

Stephanie: I'm not worried.

Kristen: You're not?

Stephanie: No. Tony seems like a lovely fellow. I just hope with all my heart that this relationship works out for you.

Kristen: It is going to work for us. Tony and I are going to have a beautiful future together.


Antonio: So what is all of this?

Doctor: This is the heart HIV treatment.

Antonio: The what?

Doctor: It's a daily drug cocktail designed to stop the virus from reproducing.

Antonio: It takes all of these pills to wipe it out?

Doctor: No, this is not a cure for HIV. These drugs just slow its progression.

Taylor: You're still be HIV-positive, but there will be less chance that you'll contract AIDS.

Antonio: Quo get it. If I'm still positive, what's the point?

Doctor: We're trying to keep your immune system healthy.

Antonio: By loading my body up with chemicals.

Doctor: Taking these drugs won't be pleasant. They all have side effects. That's what these pills are for. Vitamins, coated aspirin, manning anise.

Antonio: Those pills are just for the side effects? So, what is this? This is like chemotherapy or something, I have to get sicker before I get better?

Doctor: No. Chemotherapy destroys cells in the body. These drugs target the enzymes necessary for the drug toss reproduce.

Antonio: What does this have to do to my HIV system?

Doctor: HIV destroys t-cells. The more HIV in your blood, the weaker your immune system.

Taylor: When it gates too weak, that's when you have AIDS.

Antonio: All right. Fine. I'll take the damn drugs, just tell me what to take, and I'll do it.

Doctor: It's not that simple, Tony. I'll have to check your viral load and your T-cell count first. Then we can begin formulating a treatment strategy as to what to take and where to start. But I warn, you once you start taking these drugs, there's no turning back. If you agree to this treatment, you'll be making a commitment that you'll have to keep for the rest of your life.


Brooke: Ridge ....

Ridge: Hey, Logan.

Brooke: I just wanted to say goodbye. I'm going to Paris.

Ridge: I heard.

Brooke: There's a lot of talk about my annulment at forester international, and there's a lot of ugly rumors going around about us.

Ridge: You and Thorne, huh?

Brooke: No, you and me. I'm going to do my best to stamp them out, but they'll probably flare up again once we get back together.

Ridge: Come on, Logan. You know better than to believe your own press.

Brooke: It's going to happen, Ridge. It's inevitable.

Ridge: You're going to excuse me if I don't share your confidence and enthusiasm.

Brooke: You will. You can't fight destiny Ridge.

Ridge: You really shouldn't say things like that with a tabloid feeding frenzy going on. You just never know who might be listening.

Brooke: Let's forget about the personal. We'll talk about business. There's another reason why I'm going to Paris.

Ridge: Yeah? What's that?

Brooke: What do you think? 

Brooke: Well? Don't just sit there with your mouth hanging open. Tell me what you think.

Ridge: I think you should put your dress back on.

Brooke: Oh, come on. I want to add this new design to the Brooke's bedroom line.

Ridge: You don't need my permission for that.

Brooke: I need your opinion. I know it looks great on me.

Ridge: My eyes are totally drawn to your eyes, and then I can't see anything else.

Brooke: Yes, it's like you designed it especially for me. I don't think it would do as much for any other woman, or a man for that matter.

Ridge: Okay. This is fun. You need to get dressed.

Brooke: No, it is fun. It reminds me of old times, the way it used to be with you and me, so free and open with each other, no secrets. That's the way it used to be. And you know what? Nothing's changed.

Ridge: Except maybe you've lost your mind?

Brooke: No. I see things clearly now. In fact, I can see into the future. You want to know what I see?

Ridge: No.

Brooke: I see you and me, I see candlelight dinners, romantic get a ways. And lots of crazy, passionate sex.

Ridge: Good, yes, okay. All right. Maybe you need to take a little shower here, a cold shower before you take off for Paris, okay?

Brooke: Make you're right. I am kind of hot. But only if you join me.

Ridge: Okay, if you don't put your dress on, then I'm going to leave.

Brooke: Aw, Ridge, don't go away mad.

Ridge: I'm not mad.

Brooke: I just wanted to give you a little something to remember me by while I was out of town.


Antonio: What do you mean that there's no turning back?

Doctor: Once you start this treatment, you have to stay with it, no matter how unpleasant the side effects. You must be diligent. You can't risk missing even one dose.

Antonio: Why?

Doctor: Because if you do, the HIV can build up a resistance to the drugs. If that happens, there's nothing we can do. Once your t-cell count drops below 200, you'll eventually succumb to an AIDS-related illness, pneumonia, dementia.

Taylor: Dr. Craig, I think that's enough information for today. Let's give him a little time to absorb it. So I'll have him contact you about starting his treatment right away.

Doctor: Okay. You can do this, Tony.

Taylor: Thank you again.

Antonio: This is my life, huh? This is what my life's been reduced to?

Taylor: No. This is the way you're going to treat your disease. These drugs can help give you a chance to live your life.

Antonio: If I don't miss one dose, not one dose, ever.

Taylor: That's right. Your responsibilities are huge now. But your life is not over. You have to find a new way To live, to love.

Antonio: I don't have love in my life any more. I can't love Kristen the way I wanted to. When she finds out I am HIV positive she Won't want to be around me.

Taylor: You don't know that.

Antonio: I already could have given her the virus.

Taylor: You didn't make love did you?

Antonio: No, but we were intimate.

Taylor: It's highly unlikely that you have given her the virus.

Antonio: But it's not impossible, is it? Is there any way I could have given her this?

Taylor: The chances are highly remote but that is why you must tell her, so she can be tested.

Antonio: Oh my God! I have to tell her. I have to tell her today.
