Stephanie: Brooke has faced hard times before, but she's never given over control of the company and just taken off.

Eric: Well, she hasn't given up control.

Stephanie: What are you talking about? Ridge is CEO.

Eric: And you're happy about that, aren't you?

Stephanie: I'm thrilled. It just doesn't make any sense.

Eric: I think she just needed a break.

Stephanie: I saw her just before she left the building. It was though all the fight was out of her. I mean, she seemed to have this air of defeat about her.

Eric: Wait. You're worried about her?

Stephanie: Everyone is -- her children, and Deacon.


Dr. Isabel: The man you slept with is married to your daughter?

Brooke: Yes.

Dr. Isabel: So, you are carrying your son-in-law's baby.

Brooke: Yes, that's it. That's why I'm here.

Dr. Isabel: I see.

Brooke: Well, pretty soon everybody is going to see. The whole world's going to know what kind of a horrible person I am. God, I'm so ashamed.

Dr. Isabel: You said you thought the marriage was over?

Brooke: He told me that he was going to ask her for a divorce.

Dr. Isabel: To be with you?

Brooke: No. No, because it was best thing for Bridget. He didn't want to hold her back. This marriage was a mistake. It wasn't really a marriage at all.

Dr. Isabel: But he didn't do anything about it?

Brooke: No. No, she changed his mind.

Dr. Isabel: You didn't know this at the time of the affair.

Brooke: No, I guess I should have. Regardless -- what I did was wrong. There's nothing that you can say or that I can say that could justify it. I went to bed with my daughter's husband. I crossed that line, and there's no going back.


Bridget: Do you have any idea how amazing you are?

Deacon: No, but I got a pretty good idea how amazing you are after that.

[ Bridget laughs ]

Deacon: Wow!

Bridget: I'm serious, Deacon. I know we've had our problems, but I feel like they're behind us now. There's no tension between us. It's just so -- so comfortable, and so easy.

Deacon: I'm glad.

Bridget: I believe in you, Deacon. I just want you to know that.

Deacon: I do.

[ Knock at door ]

Bridget: Are you expecting someone?

Deacon: No. Here, let me get it.

[ Deacon sighs ] Hey, guys.

Amber: Hi, Deacon. Where's Bridget?

Bridget: Amber, Rick, what is it?

Rick: Bridget, you are not going to believe this.

Bridget: What? What's wrong? Did you talk to Ridge?

Rick: Yeah, I sure did. And we have a problem -- a major problem.


Tony: Well, it seems to me like you really like L.A., Huh?

Zende: This is amazing! I've never seen such big houses before. Look at that one!

[ Kristen laughs ]

Tony: Bernie? To the beach house now, please.

Kristen: Look, Zende, that's Santa Monica.

Zende: Oh, look, there's another big car like ours!

Tony: They're called limousines.

Kristen: Yeah. We use them just for special occasions -- like this one.

Zende: When do we get home?

Tony: Well, we're almost there.

Zende: Wow! Man.

Tony: Well, here we are.

Zende: This is your house?

Kristen: It's your house, too.

Zende: All this for two people?

Kristen: Well, there's three of us now.

Tony: Do you want to go see your room, Zende?

Zende: There are more rooms?

Kristen: Well, yeah. This is just the kitchen and the living room. The bedrooms are through there.

Zende: How many?

Kristen: Two. One for us and one for you.

Zende: I really get my own room?

Tony: Yes, you do.

Zende: Wow! What's that sound outside?

Tony: What sound?

Zende: It sounds like a rumble.

Tony: Well, let's go see.

[ Ocean tide breaking ] that's the Pacific Ocean, Zende.

Zende: It's so loud.

Kristen: Do you want to go out there?

Zende: Can I?

Tony: Of course you can. As long as we're with you, you can go out there any time that you'd like. That's your new backyard.

Zende: Wow!

Kristen: Come on. Let's take off your shoes.

Zende: I can't believe it! This is amazing! Wait till I tell mummy Trisha. I have my own room and an ocean!

[ Kristen laughs ]

Kristen: Aw.


Dr. Isabel: Brooke, it's perfectly natural for you to feel overwhelmed. Anyone would be in your situation.

Brooke: This is more than just a "situation," doctor. This is a disaster. And when this gets out, it's going to tear my family apart.

Dr. Isabel: But at this point, no one knows that you're pregnant.

Brooke: Well, I can't keep it a secret forever. And if anybody finds out who the father of this baby is, it's over. My relationship with my daughter, my reputation -- I know that there are other options, but not for me. I am going to have this baby. And whatever happens after that, I don't know. But there is a life growing inside of me, and I am going to take responsibility for that.

Dr. Isabel: Just as long as you don't view this baby as your punishment.

Brooke: No. Ruining my daughter's life -- her hatred, her betrayal, my family's disappointment -- that is my punishment.

Dr. Isabel: Is that what you think you deserve?

Brooke: Well, don't you? I slept with my daughter's husband and I'm pregnant with his child. Go ahead, you can say it. I'm a terrible person. And I'm completely unforgivable.

Dr. Isabel: No, Brooke, I don't think that. I don't think that at all.


Stephanie: I saw them talking in front of the elevator, and she accused Deacon of ruining her life.

Eric: Well, obviously, she's talking about Bridget.

Stephanie: I don't think so. I don't know what it's about. But something is going on.

[ Stephanie sighs ] )[ whenever -- whenever Brooke acts erratically, then there's always trouble.

Ridge: Oh, good, you're both here.

Eric: What's the matter?

Ridge: Let me ask you something. Am I in control of this company or not? I'd like to know. Because if I'm just here to be Brooke's puppet, there's no way this is going to work.

Eric: What do you mean, "are you in control?"

Stephanie: You're the CEO.

Ridge: Well, will somebody please explain all that to Rick?

Eric: What happened?

Ridge: Pretty much what I expected. He still sees this as his mother's company. He's questioning my decisions, demanding explanations.

Stephanie: Well, he heard that you killed the bedroom line.

Ridge: Yeah, and I tried to explain to him why. He won't listen. He's pretty much turned the whole thing into a personal attack against Brooke.

Eric: I'll talk to him.

Ridge: And while you're at it, would you point out to him that as CEO, I'd like to be treated with respect? I've got a business to run here, and if he wants to be a part of it, he's gonna play by the rules -- my rules.


Rick: The rumors were true. Ridge did it.

Bridget: He canceled the bedroom line?

Rick: Yeah. He said that it didn't fit into his plans.

Bridget: What plans?

Amber: Isn't it obvious? He wants to take over the company.

Rick: With a little prodding from Stephanie and Taylor.

Bridget: They put him up to this?

Rick: Well, he won't admit it.

Amber: Look, I'm not going to go off on Stephanie, because she's always been good to me. But you know how she feels about Brooke.

Bridget: Yeah, I do know how she feels. But, you know what? This is business. And that's one of our most successful lines ever.

Rick: Well, ridge thinks that it ruined our reputation, and he wants to focus on haute couture.

Amber: Yeah, he wants to take the company back into the stone ages.

Bridget: Wait, can he do that?

Amber: Well, with your mother out of commission, he can do whatever he wants. You know you have to call your mother?

Bridget: Yeah. I think you're right.

Rick: Now, wait a minute everybody. I think we should just calm down.

Bridget: You're not upset about this?

Rick: Well, of course I'm upset. Ridge is acting like a jerk. But, I don't want to get mom involved.

Deacon: Listen to me. Look, I know this isn't my business. You cannot let this guy get away with this, all right? You got to do something.

Rick: He won't get away with it. Trust me.

Deacon: Good.

Rick: I'll take care of it. But I can't do it alone.

Amber: Well, you got my support.

Rick: Bridget?

Bridget: You're my big brother, and you've looked out for me my whole life. So, if think you can handle this, I'm behind you 100%. We both are.

Deacon: Yeah.

Rick: All right, then. We put ridge on notice right now. This is our company, too. And nobody is going to push us around -- not Ridge, not anybody.


Brooke: You don't think what I did was wrong? I had an affair with my son-in-law.

Dr. Isabel: Yes. And that affair resulted in a pregnancy. These are the facts. But what's done is done. Beating yourself up about it isn't going to change what happened. And you know what? It's not solving your dilemma.

Brooke: Well, what is, doctor? Please, tell me, what will solve it? I'm going to have a baby -- an innocent child. Someday, he's going to want to know who his father is. And long before that, my family is going to want to know, too. They're going to demand it. So, what do I tell them?

[ Brooke cries ]

Dr. Isabel: Brooke, you are projecting. It is way too soon to be thinking about the baby's future now, and how you're going to handle it.

Brooke: Well, then let's talk about my son and daughter, when they find out that I'm pregnant.

Dr. Isabel: But you can't think that far ahead. Brooke, you are under a lot of stress right now. And projecting is only going to be moving your anxiety level way up. And it's already too high.

Brooke: Well, so what do I do?

Dr. Isabel: Well, you're going to have to get a handle on your stress and your guilt. Deal with it, and the other issues will be able to become clear.

Brooke: I have been dealing with my guilt the best that I can.

Dr. Isabel: You're not dealing with it. You're drowning in it. How do you expect anyone to forgive you, if you haven't forgiven yourself? And that is the first step in healing. Isn't that what you want?

Brooke: Yes, of course.

Dr. Isabel: Come over here. Let's look in the mirror. Let's look in the mirror. Come on. Come on. Let's look in the mirror. Just tell me the first thing that pops up into your mind.

Brooke: I see a failure.

Dr. Isabel: Would you like to know what I see? I see a woman who adores her children. I see a woman who has earned that love and respect. And it hasn't been easy. And you have had very hard times. But you have always come out on top. And you can do it again -- for yourself, and for that child inside of you. Brooke, you are going to have another baby. And it is going to be a blessing -- to you, and to that boy or girl. Because that boy or girl is going to be loved and cherished. Because you are that kind of a woman. And that's all that matters to that baby. Can't we focus on that?


Eric: Don't worry about this. I'll talk to Rick.

Stephanie: You know, I just wanted this to be an easy transition.

Eric: I'll take care of it.

Stephanie: And what about Brooke?

Eric: I don't think she's anything to worry about. Whatever it is that she's going through, she's working on it.

Stephanie: I don't want Rick involving her in this dispute.

Eric: He won't. This is temporary. It's not going to cause a big turmoil in this family.

Stephanie: I hope not.

Eric: I forgot. Kristen and Tony are back from Africa. Have you heard from them?

Stephanie: No. But they'll call as soon as they settle in.

Eric: Well, what do you think? Here we are -- grandparents again.

Stephanie: Hmm.

Eric: What do you think about all this, that Tony and Kristen are doing?

Stephanie: I'm not sure. But I'm certainly looking forward to meeting this little boy.

Eric: So am I. It's a very lucky turn of events for this child.

Stephanie: Hmm. What a moment in his life, right? First day in America, a new family, a new home -- enormous adjustments have to be made by him.


[ Tony laughs ]

Tony: That was something, wasn't it?

Zende: Yeah, the waves are so big!

Tony: Yeah, and when you learn how to swim, you can also learn how to ride them, too.

Zende: Really?

Tony: Yeah. Just like superman. You know superman?

Zende: Superman. Ahh!

Tony: Yeah. Just like that.

[ Tony laughs ] oh.

Kristen: So, Zende, you think you're going to like it here?

Zende: It's very nice.

Kristen: Now, you understand, this -- this is your home. I want you to feel comfortable, okay? This is where you're gonna grow up.

Zende: Just like in my dreams.

Kristen: You dreamed about this?

Zende: All the kids at the orphanage do. That one day someone will come and give you a home. But most people want babies. And I'm so old. But mummy Trisha said not to give up. But it was hard.

Tony: I'm sure it was.

Zende: But, then you came, and we played cards. I liked you right away.

Kristen: Oh, and we liked you.

Zende: I could tell. I saw you leave that day. You were crying. I cried, too. But then you came back, and you brought me here. I can't believe it! It's like I want to say thank you all the time.

Kristen: Oh, honey. You don't have to thank us. Yeah, we want to thank you. We are so grateful to you. You have brought us joy and hope and love.

Zende: You -- you love me?

Tony: Of course we love you.

Kristen: We're your parents. Your mom and your dad.

Zende: Mom and dad?

Tony: Yes. If that's all right with you.

Zende: Yes! Mom -- and dad. I love you, too.
