Brooke: Thanks for coming by, Megan. I just really needed somebody to talk to.
Megan: Absolutely. What's going on?
Brooke: It's Bridget. I'm worried about her.
Megan: Because Deacon's ending the marriage?
Megan: Oh, Brooke, come on. Like you said before, this -- this is really for the best. I mean, that guy is such a creep.
Brooke: He's not really a creep. He's really very sensitive.
Megan: Oh, whatever. He's gone. He's history. Who cares about that guy?
Brooke: Megan? I slept with him.
Bridget: You're sleeping with someone?
Bridget: And it isn't Amber?
Bridget: Look, I know you think you're all wrong for me, and we've gotta talk about that, but this is not gonna work.
Bridget: These wild, ridiculous stories to get me to hate you. You're sleeping around? Please, Deacon, come on. Would you stop this? Look, you want me to prove that you're not holding me back? Let me --
Deacon: Bridget, Bridget -- I have been having an affair. I don't -- it's not really an affair. I don't -- geez, I don't know what the hell it is.
Bridget: You're serious? You have slept with someone else.
Bridget: Who, Deacon? I wanna know who!
Stephanie: After all this time, all these years, you're not Eric's child. You're Massimo's son. It doesn't seem possible. It's like a dream. I keep wanting to wake up, but I -- what am I going to do? How do I handle this? If I tell you, if I tell Eric, it'll just destroy Eric. You'd be hurt, and you'd be angry. And Massimo -- it's better if Massimo never knows. It's better if the truth doesn't come out. It's better. What good would it do? It's better if no one finds out. No one can find out. That's what I'll do. No one has to ever find out, ever. Ever. [Knock at door] yes? What are you doing here, mass?
Massimo: I need to see you.
Stephanie: Well, I don't want to see you.
Massimo: Why are you treating me this way?
Stephanie: Mass, please. I'm busy.
Massimo: I need to talk to you, Stephanie.
Stephanie: About what?! There's really nothing to talk about.
Massimo: You have been acting very strange since Ridge's accident. Something is wrong. I wanna know what it is.
>> Megan: You what?
Brooke: I slept with Deacon.
Megan: Whoa! Geez.
Brooke: I know, I know. I can't believe it, either.
Megan: What, he just came onto you?
Brooke: No. No, it was nothing like that. We were struggling about what to do with Bridget. And he knew he had to leave her, but it was really hard. He didn't wanna hurt her, and it was tearing him up inside. So for the first time, I got to see the other side of Deacon -- that really sensitive, caring side. And it was really very touching. So we were talking some more, and one thing led to the next, and it just happened. Even though I never saw Bridget and Deacon as ever being truly married, it was still wrong. And if Bridget were to ever find out --
Megan: No, obviously, she can't. I mean, she really can't.
Brooke: No one can.
Megan: Not now though, but eventually, Brooke, when Bridget gets back on track and this Deacon thing is just a memory that she'd like to forget, she might not even care that you're involved with Deacon.
Brooke: I am not involved with him! Don't even suggest it. It's never going to happen again.
Megan: It was just a one-time thing, right?
Brooke: Three times, actually.
Megan: Wow. He must really be good.
Brooke: Megan, I don't wanna talk about this anymore, okay? The important thing is that Deacon is talking to Bridget right now, and I have to prepare for my daughter, who is coming home and who is going to be completely devastated.
Bridget: Who did you sleep with? You tell me right now!
Deacon: Does it really matter?
Bridget: Do I know her?! Deacon, do I know this person?!
Deacon: Bridget, you're missing the point. I'm a failure as a husband! That's what I'm trying to tell you!
Bridget: Why did you do it?
Deacon: I was messed up. I was confused. Baby, you're my best friend in the entire world. You're my only friend. But you're also the one person that I couldn't confide in about this.
Bridget: What were you confused about?
Deacon: About you and me, about this, about ending our marriage.
Bridget: Yeah, well, sleeping with someone sure helped that, didn't it?!
Deacon: I'm sorry.
Bridget: Why? Why? If this is what you want?
Deacon: Bridget, I never wanted to hurt you, and I swore to myself that I wouldn't. I meant what I said, that I never wanted to leave, that I wanted to be committed to you. It's just, the more I thought about it, the more I realized I've been a screw up my entire life. But you, you've got so much Grace. You've got so much elegance. I mean, what the hell was I thinking, that I could bring anything to your life? And I realized you needed to be as far away from me as possible, so I confided in somebody.
Bridget: You mean you made love to somebody.
Deacon: Bridget, listen to me. I swear to y I did not plan on this happening. It just happened. I didn't wanna be alone. I didn't wanna be by myself. It was sex. It wasn't love! It was nothing like what I feel for you.
Bridget: What exactly do you feel for me, Deacon?
Deacon: I wanted to be your man. I wanted you to know that no matter what this world threw at us, we could take the punch. We'd get up. We'd keep fighting. That you'd never have to question my loyalty or my commitment. That that would be the one constant in our relationship. But the more I was forced to look at it, I realized that it just wasn't --
Bridget: No. You mean when my mother hassled you about it? That's what this is really about. I know how much she's been pressuring you. You listen to me. You wanna be a man, you have to start making your own decisions and stop second-guessing yourself every time my mother opens her mouth. Otherwise, Deacon, you're no man at all. You're a boy -- an adolescent, immature boy. And that's sure as hell not the kind of husband I want!
>> Ridge: Mother's still seeing that clown?
Eric: Take it easy, Ridge.
Ridge: No, Dad. I wanna know -- is Massimo still hanging around?
Eric: I really don't know. I haven't seen him, although your mother has been acting very strange.
Ridge: Strange, how?
Eric: I don't know. She seems worried and preoccupied.
Ridge: Because of what happened to me?
Eric: I assume so, yeah.
Ridge: But I'm fine. I keep telling her that.
Eric: I know, I know. I've told her that, too.
Ridge: You think it's something else, don't you?
Eric: Yes, I do, although I'd hate to guess what it is.
Ridge: Dad, you've gotta get more aggressive with this. I know guys like Marone. There's only thing they respect, and that's power. You should've seen that guy the day I was trashing his office. He wasn't the big shot that day. [Eric laughs] what?
Eric: I think maybe you're a better match for him than I am.
Ridge: Well, maybe only because I inherited Mother's fiery temperament.
Eric: Well, I think you did. You didn't get that from me.
Ridge: To be honest, I wish I was more like you.
Eric: Really? Why?
Ridge: Because you're a class act, Dad. And everyone knows it. You always get things done. You get everything done with diplomacy and dignity.
Eric: Well, I appreciate that, son. But conciliation doesn't work with guys like Massimo. And when he sees something he wants, he grabs it. But I can assure you that's not gonna be the case, not this time. He's not gonna grab your mother. I'll fight him to the death on that.
Stephanie: I'm dealing with something personal, and you can't help me with it.
Massimo: Not if you don't let me try.
Stephanie: There isn't anything that you can do. You shouldn't even be here.
Massimo: Something terrible has happened, hasn't it?
Stephanie: Yes, something terrible has happened. My son was nearly killed in your office.
Massimo: But he's fine. I have been checking up on him.
Stephanie: You what? Don't do that. I don't want you near Ridge.
Massimo: But you know I wasn't responsible. I wouldn't do anything to harm your son. You must realize that by now.
Stephanie: Oh, please, mass, let's just drop it. Please, let's just drop it! I don't want to discuss Ridge with you.
Massimo: Uh-huh, but you'll discuss him with the doctor.
Massimo: At the hospital. I watched you through the window. And then, I opened the door a little, and I heard something.
Stephanie: You heard what?
Massimo: I heard you say to the doctor, "Eric cannot lose his son." What did you mean by that, Stephanie?
Stephanie: I was frightened. I was frightened because he'd lost so much blood. I was afraid he was going to die.
Massimo: Listen, when you were talking to the doctor, Ridge was no longer in critical condition.
Stephanie: Would you stop interrogating me like this?!
Massimo: Look, he is your son, not mine. And in that respect, you are right. It is none of my business, but damn it, I care for you, Stephanie. I love you, and I hate to see you tortured.
Stephanie: Well, I don't love you! I don't want your help! I don't want you involved in this! Do you understand? Whatever I might have said, I was frantic about Ridge, so it means absolutely nothing.
Massimo: You're hiding something.
Stephanie: Well, if I am, then please respect it.
Massimo: Mm-hmm. And everyone else should, too. Is that right? Because I also heard you say to the doctor, "no one must ever find out." Find out what, Stephanie? A secret that you can't share with your husband, your children? Please, what is it?
Deacon: Bridget, I'm no boy. I haven't been a boy since the day my father walked out on me and my mother when I was 6 years old. So please, don't you ever question whether or not I'm a man.
Bridget: Well then, why don't you start acting like one? A man calls his own shots. A man does what he knows what's right.
Deacon: I don't know what's right anymore. It's like, in the midst of all this chaos, I don't know what's right. The only thing I know is that you're still here. Baby, what the hell have I done?
Bridget: I think the more relevant question is -- what do you wanna do?
Deacon: Do I have a choice?
Bridget: You always have a choice, Deacon. It doesn't mean you'll get what you choose.
Deacon: I'm such an idiot. I mean, I had it. I had everything that I've ever wanted right here in front of me, and you know what? I blew it. I just pissed it away, didn't I? You know, it's so funny. You're right. I've always called my own shots. I've always made my own choices, and for better or for worse, if I made a mistake, at least it was my mistake. Baby, I know who I am. I come from the gutter. But you -- you've got so much Grace, and you've got values and principles -- all the things that I was never given. I was never exposed to them until I met you, and you taught me. Bridget, the hardest thing about this right now is knowing that I'm losing the best damn thing that ever happened to me and that it's my fault. Baby, you're not the loser here. I am. If I had another chance, I swear that I would -- I'd --
Bridget: You'd what?
Deacon: Doesn't matter. It's just words.
Bridget: Well, I would like to hear them anyway.
Deacon: I'd make you proud. I'd never look at another woman again. I'd be the kind of husband that you've deserved all these months. Bridget, I love you. And no matter what happens, no matter where you go or who you might wind up with -- please know in your heart that I love you.
Bridget: You better not make me regret this one day, but I am giving you one more chance. And don't you ever make a fool of me again.
Deacon: I promise. But I gotta tell you this -- all those things that I said to you, all those cruel things that I said, I said them 'cause I wanted to push you away. I thought that -- I thought I was doing what was best for you.
Bridget: I believe in you, Deacon. My mother manipulated you. And in my mind, she's just as responsible for your infidelity as you are. But I am telling you now -- this is the last time. If you can't be faithful to me --
Deacon: I can, I can. I will. I will! I promise you I will. You are gonna be the only woman in my life until the day I die. I promise you.
Bridget: I believe you.
Deacon: Bridget, thank you.
Stephanie: If you really wanna do something for me, please, just leave me alone. Just go.
Massimo: I want to know what is going on inside of you, Stephanie. You can share this burden with me.
Stephanie: No! No, I can't.
Massimo: You must!
Stephanie: You -- you don't have an idea what you're asking of me, please. So please don't do this to me!
Massimo: Let it go, Stephanie!
Stephanie: I can't. I can't, mass!
Massimo: You will! Otherwise, I'm gonna go talk to that doctor, and if I have to, I will turn that place inside out. But I am going to find out the truth! I'm gonna find out what you are hiding! And Stephanie, you know me. Nothing will stop me. Nothing! Fine.
Stephanie: No, you son of a bitch! Don't you walk out that door! You wanna know?! You have to know?! Fine. I'll tell you. And then you will live with it! Eric is not Ridge's father. Ridge is your son. He's your child.
