[ Phone rings]

Deacon: Hello?

Brooke: Deacon, it's Brooke.

Deacon: Look, I told you, I've got nothing to say to you.

Brooke: Well, I have something to say to you.

Deacon: I can't do it.

Brooke: We're beyond that. You have to leave Bridget. You know that as well as I do.

Deacon: Brooke, I tried.

Brooke: Well, then try again.

Deacon: I'm not even sure that this is what I want.

Brooke: It's not about what you want. This is about what's right and wrong. You are holding her back. Look, if you were a husband that was in love with his wife, that would be one thing, but you're not. You owe her a chance to make a life and she can't do that while she's still married to you. You have to let my little girl go. Is she there?

Deacon: Yeah.

Brooke: Well, then you know what you have to do. I'll call you later.

[Deacon sighs]

Deacon: Oh, man, she's right. She's right.


Bridget: Hey.

Deacon: Hey.

Bridget: I thought you were going to work.

Deacon: You know, actually -- actually, I called in sick.

Bridget: What? Honey, what's wrong?

Deacon: I'm fine. I just -- I just wanted to spend some time with you, that's all.

Bridget: Aw. Deacon, you're so sweet.


Massimo: Yourself, Sally.

Sally: Well, I would love to take credit for the entire evening, Mojo, especially because of that look you're giving me right now, but --

Massimo: But? You put Tony and Kristen together. No one else could have arranged all of this.

Sally: Listen, I may have been a catalyst, but there were other people involved in getting this together, and -- what am I doing? Am I crazy, huh? Go ahead. You want to make me the heroine of this romance novel; I am certainly not going to fight it.

Massimo: Absolutely, and they're going to be a very happy couple.

Sally: Well, they are going to face some challenges -- major ones. Marriage doesn't these days?

Sally: It's a little more than that, unfortunately.

Massimo: Because of the Forresters? Right. You told me that they do not accept Antonio.

Sally: No, they most certainly do not, and when Eric Forrester finds out about this engagement party, there's going to be an explosion one would hear all the way to Timbuktu.

Massimo: Uh-huh. Well, why don't you just leave that up to me. I'll talk to Stephanie.

Sally: Stay out of it, Massimo. There's a lot more to this than you're aware of.

Massimo: Well, you won't tell me. So perhaps Stephanie will.

Sally: It's probably better that you hear it from me anyway. Antonio has HIV.


[Kristen and Tony ride in the back of a limo, not realizing Eric is the driver.]

Kristen: This is exactly how I dreamed it would be -- riding home in the back of a limo from the most amazing engagement party a girl could ever want.

Tony: Well, you can thank Sally for the limo.

Kristen: Oh, and you for everything else.

Tony: Oh. Before I forget -- pick a hand.

Kristen: That one. Oh, Tony.

Tony: A perfect fit.

Kristen: Yes, perfect fit. God, I can't wait to show everyone -- except my dad, of course.

Tony: I don't even want to think how he's going to react.

Kristen: You know what? Right now, I don't even care how he reacts. You know, he's just going to have to accept it.

Tony: W you worried about your father?

Kristen: No, no. I'm just a little disappointed.

Tony: I want to be there when you tell him.

Kristen: No. No, I'll handle it.

Tony: Kristen --

Kristen: Tony, I know how to handle my father. Look, I don't want him to ruin our special evening.

Tony: He couldn't. I don't think anybody could.

Kristen: You're probably right. Oh, God, this just feels so right. I hope it feels right for you, too.

Tony: Well, I'm getting used to the idea.

Kristen: Yeah? Are you sure you can handle my feisty moods?

Tony: the only reason we're getting married. I wasn't going to do it. I don't think there was a power on this earth that would have allowed me to marry you, but I don't know. There's something inside of you. You have a power that is not from this planet. There's something divine inside of you.

Kristen: In all of us.

Tony: And you made me see that. You know, you transformed a future that I pictured full of frustration and agony. I love you so much.

Kristen: I love you, too, and I am always going to be there for you.

Tony: We're home.

Kristen: Yeah. Well, so do I get to get carried over the threshold.

Ton a sack of potatoes. Come on. Driver, that's fine. I'll get the door for the lady.

[Door slams]

[screeching tires]

Tony: Kristen, Kristen! Kristen!


Bridget: I'm going to go call Betsy.

Deacon: Why?

Bridget: Well, we were supposed to go out tonight, me and the girls from the sorority I'm pledging, but if my husband wants to spend the night at home with me --

Deacon: Wait a minute, Bridget. Hang on. Honey, you've been talking about pledging this sorority all summer. No.

Bridget: Oh, that's okay. There's always next year.

Deacon: Right? I don't want to be holding you back. I don't want to do that to you.

Bridget: Deacon, my husband is and always will be my first priority.

Deacon: Yeah, but see, you've got to be your first priority, not me.

Bridget: Oh, is that so?

Deacon: Yeah, that's so.

Bridget: It sounds like you're making me your first priority.

Deacon: Look, we really do have to talk.

Bridget: Talking is just so overrated, and there's so many other things that we could be doing.

Deacon: Bridget, stop it. Come on. I'm serious.


Massimo: Tony has HIV?

Sally with a woman to work for me at Spectra, and he only found out recently that that woman died of AIDS.

Massimo: Aye, aye, aye.

Sally: So now, maybe you understand why Eric Forrester doesn't want Kristen to go near him.

Massimo: You know, I have utter contempt for Eric Forrester, and yet -- I mean, when I watch his daughter with Tony, I certainly can understand his concern.

Sally: Well, any father would be concerned, but he doesn't know Antonio. He doesn't know the kind of man he is. That young man would die before he'd do anything to hurt Kristen.

Massimo: Sally, right, but look how passionate they are with each other.

Sally: Without taking risks. Listen, if you don't believe me, come on over to my place and I'll show you what I mean.

[Massimo laughs]

Massimo: Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. Wait until Eric hears about this engagement.

Sally: I know. There is going to be a firestorm, but I know that Antonio and Kristen can fight it. I think those two are capable of just about anything.


Kristen: Driver -- driver, what are you doing? Driver?! Hey -- hey, what are you doing, driver?! Driver, where are you taking me?!

Eric: Just sit back and relax, Kristen.


Bridget: You and me, how you are ruining my life? You've been talking to mom again?

Deacon: Bridget, this has nothing to do with your mom.

Bridget: Oh, no, no. This is about us, right? About our happiness? Look, I have never been happier in my life, okay? So what is the problem?

Deacon: Baby, look, you're happy now, but what's going to happen --

Bridget: Oh, but you know the future, right? Is that what you were going to say? Do you know how ridiculous that is? Who knows what the future holds? But you know what? Judging by the present, I'm pretty excited about it.

Deacon: I just --

[knock at door]  

Betsey: Hey, girl. Ooh, I like the outfit. Come on. Everybody's waiting in the car. Hi, Deacon.

Bridget: Oh, Betsy, I can't.

Betsey: What do you mean you can't?

Bridget: Deacon needs me.

Betsey: So you don't want to join the sorority?

Bridget: Well, yeah, I do.

Betsey: Bridget, this is a required pledge event, okay? If you miss tonight, you're not going to get in.

Deacon: She's not going to miss it, Betsy. Honey, go, please.

Bridget: Really? Are you sure?

Deacon: I'm positive.

Bridget: We'll make it up when I get back.

Betsey: Lucky guy.


Sally: You've seen for yourself what a remarkable couple Antonio and Kristen are. They're not about to do anything to destroy that.

[Phone rings] excuse me.

Massimo: Mm-hmm.

Sally: Sally Spectra.

Tony: Sally, it's Tony. The limo -- what company did you use?

Sally: Limo? What limo?

Tony: The limo that was outside of the restaurant waiting for me and Kristen.

Sally: Oh, I'm sorry, honey. That wasn't me.

Tony: It wasn't?

Sally: No. I wish it had been, now that you mention it.

Tony: Oh, my God, Sally.

Sally: What is wrong, Tony?

Tony: There was a limo that just took off with Kristen in it. I got out of the car, and the damn thing just drove off.

Sally: I'll be right over. I'm terribly sorry, Massimo, but I've got to go.

Massimo: Do you want me to wait, or what?

Sally: No, no. It looks like I'm going to have to take a rain check on that room service breakfast after all.

Massimo: Okay.

Sally: Ciao.

Massimo: Ciao.


Kristen: Dad?!

Eric: Just sit back.

Kristen: No. You stop this car, Dad. I want to go back!

Eric: You're not going to marry him, Kristen.

Kristen: I want out!

Eric: I have something to show you.

Kristen: Stop this car!

[Screeching tires]


[phone rings]

Deacon: Yeah?

Brooke: Is Bridget still there?

Deacon: No. She left.

Brooke: Did you tell her that it's over?

Deacon: No. I couldn't do it, Brooke.

[Brooke sighs]

Brooke: All right. Look, you stay there. I'm coming right over.

Deacon: Whoa, whoa. No, no, no, Brooke. I don't want you over there.

Brooke: All right. Then you come over here. I need to see you right now, Deacon.

Deacon:  I'll be right over.



Kristen: Come on! Let me go! Let go of me!

Eric: All right, all right, all right. Let her go. Let her go.

Kristen: I want to call Tony, and I want to call him now!

[Intercom beeps]

Eric: Yeah? Good, good. Come in.

Kristen: What, who's coming? Dad? Would you please tell me? Clarke, what are you doing here? What is this all about?!


Deacon: Brooke, before you say anything, the timing wasn't right. I couldn't do it.

Brooke: What happened?

Deacon: Bridget she's been trying to pledge? I couldn't tell her not to go. Bridget needs a life, right? That's what you've been telling me.

Brooke: Right. I know, I know. I just want to make sure we're on the same page. She is a wonderful, sweet young woman, and she has her whole life ahead of her -- college, maybe medical school. And eventually, she can meet somebody that's closer to her own age, somebody she has things in common with, who will love her and cherish her. And Deacon, as long as you're married to her, she can't have any of those things. Look, I know you care about her, and I know you don't want to hurt her, but the longer this goes on --

Deacon: I mean, can't you see how she's changed me? There's more to it than this, Brooke. I mean, Bridget may very well be the best thing that's happened to me.

Brooke: If you're talking about money and a good lifestyle --

Deacon: Oh, come on, Brooke. You know, it's always the same thing with you people. You still see me the same way, don't you? Like some cheap little hustler?

Brooke: Well, I'm sure that you don't love her.

Deacon: Hey, let's get something straight right here and right now. I care a hell of a lot about your daughter.

Brooke: Which is exactly why you have to do this for her. You can't give her what she needs.

Deacon: Just think about this, Brooke.

Brooke: Oh, Deacon, what's there to think about?

Deacon: Hey, you're asking me to end my marriage here. Look, that might not be very significant to you, but it means a hell of a lot to me.

Brooke: Deacon, it wasn't a true marriage, and you know it. Before you walk out that door, I want you to promise me that you're going to ask Bridget for a divorce tonight, Deacon.


[Knock at door]

Tony: Okay. Thank you anyway.

Sally: Hello, Antonio. Any word from Kristen yet?

Tony: No, and I've been calling every damn limousine company in town.

Sally: Tony, were you able to get a look at the driver?

Tony: No. I didn't even see his face.

Again you got out of the car and he just drove off?

Tony: He just drove off, Sally, and this is freaking me out!

Sally: Listen, maybe someone was playing a joke on you. Maybe it was a prank.

Tony: Who would play a prank like this, Sally?!

Sally: I don't know, but we've got to think about this. There's got to be some explanation.

Tony: I mean, who would do this, and why?!

Sally: Maybe it was someone who simply wanted to get Kristen away from you. Someone like --

Tony: Someone like Kristen's father.

Sally: Exactly.

Tony: That's it. He's behind this.


Eric: Clarke, do you have it?

Clarke: Yes.

Eric: Good.

Kristen: Will somebody please tell me what is going on?!

Eric: Gentlemen, if you would wait outside, please.

Kristen: All right, look, I want an explanation, and then I want a ride back to Tony's.

Eric: Play it, Clarke.

Kristen: Dad, what the hell are you up to?

Eric: I want you to sit down, Kristen.

Kristen: No!

Eric: I want you to sit down right now! Come here.

Clarke: It's ready.

Kristen: Look, I am not going to --

Eric: You're going to watch this tape, Kristen, and then you're going to think very carefully about whether you're going to marry this man or not
