Ridge: You sure you're gonna be okay?

Brooke: I'll be fine.

Ridge: I can stay if you need me to.

Brooke: No. You have enough on your plate.

Ridge: When are you gonna tell Rick and Bridget?

Brooke: I'll talk to them tonight or tomorrow.

Ridge: Your world's been turned upside down, Logan.

Brooke: I'll survive.

Ridge: You've got my cell phone number, so you call me if you need me, okay?

Brooke: Thank you, for everything.

Ridge: I know you didn't get any sleep on that flight, so you get some rest.

Brooke: Okay. So you're going home?

Ridge: Yeah. Taylor's waiting.

Brooke: I'm sorry, Ridge.

Ridge: So am I.


Massimo: All right. Was Brooke with Ridge on the plane when he called?

Taylor: He didn't say.

Stephanie: I'd bet a million dollars she was.

Massimo: What exactly did he say?

Taylor: That he wanted to talk to me right away, and he wanted me to be alone when he got here. He sounded angry. He knows everything. I'm sure of it.

Massimo: All right, look -- you don't say anything. Let him reveal it.

Stephanie: Mass, no. She's already made a decision. She's going to tell him everything.

Massimo: That's insane.

Taylor: This plan of yours was insane!

Massimo: Listen, I am trying to help --

Taylor: No! That is it! I am setting Ridge straight today, and don't try to talk me out of it!


[Rick remembering]

Deacon: I love you.

Amber: And I love you,


Rick: Man, I have been such a fool. She loves him. She loves him, but she's pregnant with my kid. What am I gonna do?

Amber: I'm home! I know, I know, more baby stuff! But I'm so into it, sweetie. Oh, you gotta see what I got. Okay, okay. Wait, wait, wait. Look at this! Isn't it precious?! Oh, my gosh, I love it! Okay, and, and, and -- this. Oh! Stop, it's so great. The little bibs.


Taylor: I was a fool to fall for this crazy plan. I cannot believe this.

Massimo: Oh, I see. You were a fool to try to save your marriage.

Taylor: You know what? I don't need to get rid of Brooke to save my marriage.

Massimo: Really? Well, that's not the way you felt before.

Taylor: Well, I do now.

Massimo: Please, Stephanie, you -- you try.

Taylor: My decision is set in stone! I am telling Ridge everything, if he doesn't know already. Now, he asked me to be alone when he got here, so please, you've got to go!

Stephanie: Are you sure you don't want us to stay? I mean, don't you think you might need our support?

Taylor: Stephanie, when he sees the two of you here, it's just going to make him more furious.

Stephanie: Honey, he's going to be furious regardless.

Taylor: Please, I can handle my husband. Would you just go? Please?

Stephanie: All right. Mass, let's go.

Ridge: Where do you two think you're going?


Megan: You must be exhausted.

Brooke: It's been a roller coaster.

Megan: Do you want something?

Brooke: No, thanks.

Megan: Oh, you poor thing.

Brooke: Actually, I'm doing okay -- better than I should be.

Megan: Well, thank God Ridge found Mr. Marone's business card.

Brooke: That was the key. He could've ignored it or thrown it away.

Megan: In fact, he unraveled the whole plot. God, Brooke, what a horrible thing to do to you.

Brooke: If it weren't for Ridge, I'd still be in Paris with my supposedly dying father.

Megan: He's been a real friend.

Brooke: More than a friend. The way he flew to Paris when I had my accident, and then, on the plane on the way home, he was so loving and so tender.

Megan: Where is he now?

Brooke: With Taylor.

Megan: Ooh, I would not want to be in her shoes. Brooke, you must be absolutely furious with her.

Brooke: Well, she will get what she has coming to her.

Megan: What are you gonna do?

Brooke: I don't have to do anything. Ridge is going to do it for me.


Taylor: They were just leaving, sweetheart.

Ridge: Well, they're not leaving yet. Sit down, mother. You, too, Massimo. I said sit down! This is a new low for you, Mother.

Stephanie: Ridge --

Ridge: Don't even talk. I'm doing the talking now. Did you really think you could get away with this?

Massimo: This is not your mother's fault.

Ridge: You shut your mouth! You pay a man to tell his daughter he's dying? You get her to leave her family, her job, and move to Paris?

Stephanie: You know exactly why we did it.

Ridge: I don't give a damn why you did it. It was wrong.

Stephanie: Oh, and Brooke's behavior isn't wrong?

Ridge: Brooke could dance on tabletops in front of me, and it wouldn't excuse what you did.

Stephanie: Well, I'm sorry.

Ridge: That's the incredible thing, though. You're not sorry, mother. You'd do it again or worse if this idiot came up with another scheme!

Taylor: Ridge, this is really between you and me, okay? So please, let's just talk in private.

Ridge: How did you actually think this would work, huh?

Stephanie: We were desperate, and with good reason.

Ridge: You were fools, all of you, for listening to him. Did it ever occur to you even once, mother, what this was gonna do to a family like the Logans, huh? Those people will never be the same ever again. Brooke has lost her father. When Rick and Bridget hear about this --

Stephanie: You want to talk to me about destroying a family?!

Ridge: My family is my business! You don't interfere! If we have a problem, I solve it. Not you, not Dad, and certainly not some two-bit hood who's got no business being in my life or yours!


Amber: Okay, okay, wait. Wait, here it is. Here it is! Look! Little baby booties! Little blue ones for a little boy and little pink ones for a little girl! I know, I know. I get carried away, but you're gonna have to indulge me on this, okay? Because I'm so into having a baby.

Rick: Why?

Amber: Well, honey, if I wasn't all ga-ga at first, it was just because I was thrown, you know? I just -- I wasn't ready to have a baby right then, but now that I am, I'm just thrilled! God, we are gonna have so much fun! Oh, sweetie, this baby is gonna bring nothing but joy into our lives. You know, I'm not just saying that. I'm not. I've never been more ready to have a baby, and you know why? Hmm? You know why? Because I've never been more in love with my husband, and if ginger wasn't waiting for me at the insomnia, I would give you a little demonstration of that love, Amber style. But we're gonna have to save that for later, okay? Because ginger, poor ginger, she's all coffeed out by now. Decaf for me, of course. Okay? I'll see you later. I will make it very quick, okay? Bye, honey.


Megan: You're gonna let Taylor get away with this? Brooke, she could have stopped you from going to Paris. But instead, she encouraged you to leave.

Brooke: I know, and Ridge knows it, too.

Megan: Really? What exactly did you guys talk about on that plane ride home?

Brooke: How disillusioned he is with his wife. It's amazing. After all these years of trying to make it work with Ridge, it's Taylor who ultimately drove him back to me.

Megan: He's that upset with her?

Brooke: Well, wouldn't you be?

Megan: Well, yeah. I mean, I'm sure he's angry, but --

Brooke: Well, it's not that he's just angry with her. He sees her differently. It's not the Taylor that he married.

Megan: What do you mean?

Brooke: Well, he married Taylor because of her strength and her character and her so-called integrity. He never thought she was gonna get mixed up in some kind of crazy, sleazy plot. I've never seen him so let down.

Megan: But he won't be for long?

Brooke: Not if I have anything to say about it. It's finally going to happen for us, Megan.


Massimo: Are you finished?

Ridge: Not by a long shot.

Massimo: I'm not gonna allow you to show such disrespect to your mother.

Ridge: Why don't you just stay out of it, Massimo?

Massimo: I caused it, Ridge. It was my plan, all mine. Your mother, Taylor, they had nothing to do with it, okay? They couldn't have stopped me even if they'd tried.

Stephanie: Oh, my God! What are you doing?

Taylor: Ridge, stop it!

Stephanie: Mass, please. Mass, don't -- don't. Please, don't. Mass, please. Please. Are you all right? We did this because of you, you idiot!

Massimo: That's okay. Oh, you're lucky. You've got -- you've got a pretty good right hook there, my friend.

Ridge: I want you out of my life!

Massimo: I want you out of Brooke's life!

Ridge: Who the hell do you think you are, anyway?

Massimo: I have a lot more interest in this than you realize.

Ridge: If you're talking about my mother, I know you've got the hots for her.

Stephanie: Oh, grow up!

Massimo: It's all right. It's all right, Stephanie. It's obvious he has to blow off a little steam. Feel better, Ridge?

Ridge: I'll feel better when you're out of town, Massimo. I knew you were trouble the moment I laid eyes on you. You are a low-life thug, and if you interfere with my family ever again, I swear to God I will put you six-feet under.

Massimo: I think you should worry less about me and more about your wife and your children.

Ridge: Don't push me, Massimo! I'm not gonna listen to you anymore.

Stephanie: Well, listen to me! What we did was wrong, yes. Was it immoral? Perhaps. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat! I'd do anything to get rid of Brooke.


Rick: Thanks for coming over, man.

Thorne: Yeah, no problem. You sounded pretty stressed on the phone.

Rick: I am.

Thorne: What's going on?

Rick: I need someone to talk to. I figured you'd be the right person.

Thorne: Okay. Why?

Rick: Because you've been through it.

Thorne: Been through what?

Rick: Married to a woman who you adore, only to find out that she's in love with somebody else.

Thorne: Deacon and Amber?

Rick: I thought it was over, but it's not.

Thorne: What happened, man?

Rick: I was at the lair. They were kissing. She's never gotten over him, Thorne. She's never will get over him. Only now, she's pregnant with my child. What the hell am I gonna do?


Megan: Brooke, I don't want to bring you down, okay? But Taylor and Ridge have kids. Do you really think this is enough to break them up?

Brooke: Look at what she did to me, Megan! My God.

Megan: But it wasn't just her. It was Stephanie and Mr. Marone.

Brooke: Well, she could have stopped it.

Megan: No, you're absolutely right.

Brooke: She's not gonna talk her way out of this one.

Megan: She must really feel threatened by you.

Brooke: Well, I didn't want to threaten her. That was never my intention. If I didn't believe that Ridge cares about me the way that he does, I would have given up on this a long time ago. But you should have seen him, Megan, in Paris, on the plane. He was devastated for what I had to go through. And to know that his wife was responsible? Taylor's a psychiatrist, and for her to convince my father to tell me that he was dying? I mean, I've never heard anything as sick as that.

Megan: No, it's pretty bad. I just don't know what Taylor can say to defend herself.

Brooke: Nothing. Nothing. She complains about me breaking up her family, but look at what she did to mine. She really buried herself this time, and she has given Ridge plenty of ammunition to walk away, and he will. I know he will.


Ridge: I look at you, Mother, and I don't know what to say. It's like I don't even know you.

Stephanie: Well, something had to be done. Can't you see that?

Ridge: No, I can't. What I do see is cruelty -- blatant, cold, calculated cruelty -- and I'm ashamed to think that someone I know, especially you and Taylor, would ever be involved in something as disgusting as this.

Stephanie: Well, that you hold Brooke blameless for all of this is something I will never understand.

Ridge: Brooke is a flirt, okay? She's a free spirit, but she's completely harmless.

Stephanie: Oh, my God, Ridge. The one thing that woman isn't is harmless.

Taylor: She outright publicly stated that she was --

Ridge: Taylor, I don't care what she stated! I don't care! Brooke says a lot of things here. That's no reason to tell her her dad's dying. For God's sakes, don't any of you have any sense of decency, of right and wrong here? I would expect this much of him, but not of you and Taylor.

Stephanie: You've got blinders on where that woman is concerned. You always have. You can't see her for -- what's is it gonna take? What is it going to take? What's -- how much -- how much does your wife have to put up with?

Ridge: Whatever she puts up with or doesn't put up with is none of your concern! This is my marriage, and you stay the hell out of it!

Taylor: She is trying to protect our marriage, our family.

Ridge: Taylor, will you stop defending her?! You people have no idea the damage you've caused, and I'm not just talking about Brooke and her family. I'm talking about me, because I'm never gonna be able to look at either one of you again the same way. And you -- whoever let you in our front door to infect our family, that's all beyond me. I don't understand that. Mother, you take Massimo, and you get the hell out of here right now, because I want to talk to Taylor. Get out of here!
