Amber: You are, aren't you? You're pregnant.

Brooke: Don't be ridiculous.

Amber: Brooke, you can't deny it. I -- I saw your stomach. Oh, my god. Rick's gonna die.


Megan: This --

Deacon: Whoa!

Megan: This is Rick's new office.

Deacon: Right on.

Rick: Hey, Deacon. How you doing?

Deacon: Pretty good, Rick. Eric, how are ya? Megan's just been giving me the lay of the land, here. Hey, there he is. Come here, buddy.

Little Eric: Daddy.

Deacon: Oh, look at this guy. How you doing, pal?

Rick: No, it's -- it's okay. He can't get have too much love, right?

Deacon: Didn't always feel that way, Rick.

Rick: Well, what can I say, Deacon? I can't ask you not to love your own child, and not to be part of his life. Wouldn't be right. For you or for him.


Amber: Does Rick know yet?

Brooke: No. He, uh --

Amber: Are you okay?

Brooke: Yeah, I just -- I just got dizzy for a second.

Amber: Do you want some water?

Brooke: Sure, thanks.

Amber: Okay. Okay. Whew -- this is so weird, you know? I mean, I never would've guessed. I mean, I saw that you were getting, you know, bigger. But I just figured -- whoa -- pregnant. Here. I just can't believe it. My baby's grandma is having a baby. Feel better now?

Brooke: No.

Amber: Yeah, I know how that goes. Wow. You and me, pregnant together? Would you ever have guessed, in your wildest dreams that --

Brooke: Amber, Amber, will you just stop talking for a second, please.

Amber: Sorry. I'm just -- shocked.

Brooke: Well, yes, I understand.

Amber: I just -- I never guessed that you would do that again.

Brooke: Well, me neither.

Amber: So, it was a surprise?

Brooke: Yes, yes. Of course it was a surprise.

Amber: You're not happy about it.

Brooke: It's complicated.

Amber: Yeah, I bet. I mean, the father must -- wait -- who is the father?


Megan: Excuse me, Mr. Forrester? Look, I didn't want to ask this in front of Rick, but -- I was just curious how Stephanie is taking it?

Eric: You mean, Brooke coming back and firing Ridge?

Megan: Yeah.

Eric: She doesn't know.

Megan: You didn't tell her?

Eric: She left town a couple of days ago. She needed to get away from all this.

Megan: Oh. You didn't want to upset her.

Eric: I haven't talked to her. I don't know where she went and she hasn't called.

Megan: That's not like her, is it?

Eric: No. No, it's not. Truth is, I'm worried about her. If she calls, call me right away, will you?

Megan: Yeah, of course.


Deacon: Let me set you down here, pal. Why don't you do some coloring there, huh? Look, at this guy, huh? I think he likes playing head honcho.

Rick: That's -- that's kind of how I feel. In over my head.

Deacon: Rick, you're gonna do great.

Rick: You know, this is a good opportunity. For both of us.

Deacon: Rick, I want you to know how much I appreciate everything that your mother's done for me. Now, just between us executive types -- tell the truth, when she gave me this chance, you thought she was out of her tree, didn't ya?

Rick: No. You really came through for us, Deacon. You deserve to be rewarded. Just don't let her down.

Deacon: You still don't trust me, do you, Rick?

Rick: Actually, I'm beginning to. And not because of what you've done for this company, but because of what you've been doing for this guy.

Deacon: I don't -- I don't think I follow you.

Rick: I used to just think that you were using little Eric to get some money, to get to Amber back.

Deacon: Unfortunately -- it seems that that's how things started.

Rick: Yeah, but everything's different. You really fell in love with him.

Deacon: I'm glad you can see that.

Rick: Yeah. It really shows. You've made an honest effort to be a part of his life. You've really been there for him. It would've been a hell of a lot easier not to be.

Deacon: Easier? Ah. What, are you kidding me? That probably would've killed me.

Rick: Well, I guess that's what I'm saying. A real man wouldn't turn his back on his child. You've really proven your commitment, deacon. I honestly believe that you'd do whatever is best for Eric. You're a good father.

Deacon: Right back at ya.

Rick: Well, I'll see ya.

Deacon: Okay.

Megan: You know, he's right. You are a good father. And you know what, Deacon? I think you're a good man.

Deacon: Megan, please just don't --

Megan: No, no, no. Listen, listen to me. I know how much you love Brooke. And you want to protect her. But, Deacon, this child she's carrying is your flesh and blood. Can you really turn your back on him? You can't, can you?


Amber: You haven't been seeing anyone else, 'cause I'd know.

Brooke: We're not going to get into this, Amber.

Amber: Why not?

Brooke: Because it's personal.

Amber: You're ashamed.

Brooke: I wouldn't say that.

Amber: You don't have to say it. Well, that's why you went away, isn't it?

Brooke: Yes.

Amber: I mean, you were so messed up and we just all thought it was -- oh. Ohh.

Brooke: What?

Amber: I know who it is.

Brooke: Who?

Amber: The father. Brooke.

Brooke: You couldn't possibly know.

Amber: Of course I do. You know, you thought that he was going to leave her. And that it'd be okay. But then when he told you that they were staying in the marriage -- god, it -- it just must've ripped your heart out. And then you -- you went away, because you figured if the family found out about the baby then -- oh, man. They're gonna crucify you. Especially Stephanie --

Brooke: Well, it's none of Stephanie's business. It's nobody's business.

Amber: Well, it will be when they find out that you're carrying Ridge's child.

Brooke: Ridge? Did you say Ridge? You think it's Ridge's?

Amber: Well, yeah. I mean, he's the father, isn't he?

Brooke: No, no. Amber, he's not the father.

Amber: Well, you haven't been involved with anyone else. Are you saying that there's someone else?

Brooke: Look, I am saying that I'm not going to discuss this with you.

Amber: Okay. Fine. I could see how you wouldn't want to open up to me. But Rick is going to want some answers.

Brooke: Rick can't find out about this. Not yet.

Amber: You want me to lie to my husband?

Brooke: I want you to respect my privacy.

Amber: But, you know, Brooke, everyone's gonna find out anyway.

Brooke: I realize that. And by then it will be okay. But right now, I'm just not ready.

Amber: Yeah, but --

Brooke: I just need you to give me a little more time, okay, amber? A couple of weeks.

Amber: But Rick loves you. He's not going to judge you. And you're gonna need someone to talk to --

Brooke: Amber. Not a word. Okay? To anyone. Now, I'm going to go upstairs and get ready for work.

Amber: Brooke -- I'm sorry, but I can't keep this a secret.


Deacon: I'm not turning my back on my child. I'll be involved in her life.

Megan: But he or she is not gonna even know who you are, deacon. They're going to think that their father abandoned him. Which is how you grew up, right?

Deacon: Hey, hey. You don't know a damn thing about how I grew up.

Megan: Okay, but, Deacon, can you let your daughter or your son grow up like that?

Deacon: What is my alternative? Tell me.

Megan: To tell the truth.

Deacon: Please, Megan, just stop with this.

Megan: No, Deacon, I'm not gonna stop, okay? I mean, think about how much you love little Eric. You do, and how powerful that emotion is. It's gonna be the same way with this child. Actually, more so, because you are so in love with his mother. Are you gonna be able to just sit on those feelings? I mean, are you kidding me? Are you just gonna be able to -- what? Pretend that they're not there?

Deacon: What's gonna happen if I don't? Brooke's whole life is gonna -- is gonna turn upside down. Not to mention this child. Not to mention my wife. Can't you see that?

Megan: Please, I know that it's gonna be messy.

Deacon: Did you just say "messy?" No, no, no. See, Megan, messy is when you spill a glass of red wine on a white carpet. That's messy. This would be hell. For everyone.

Megan: But, Deacon, they'll both have you.

Deacon: Look, Megan, she -- Brooke doesn't even want me.

Megan: What are you talking about, Deacon? You have to know how much she cares.

Deacon: Fine. Fine. She cares. She wants me. But not at the risk of losing her daughter.

Megan: Oh, Deacon, come on. Bridget is a loving, forgiving person. And you know that better than anybody.

Deacon: Um -- Megan, in life they're certain things that you don't just get over. I would say that a husband sleeping with his wife's mother probably falls in that category. Why are we even having this discussion?

Megan: Because you know that I'm right. Come on, deacon. God, think about it. Think about what you have gone through -- all that you went through to keep little Eric in your life. And how hard you fought for him. And now, you're telling me that you're going to let the woman that you love raise your child all by herself? Well, you know what, Deacon? I don't buy it. No, because the same passion that you feel for Brooke, you're going to feel for this child. And I am telling you, when you hold this baby in your arms and you look at him, when you look in his eyes, you're not gonna be able to let go. And you know what, Deacon? You shouldn't. Because I'm gonna tell you, Brooke and this child are gonna be the best things that come into your life. Don't you get that?

Deacon: Yes! Yes, I get it, damn it. I know -- I know everything that I'm losing. And knowing it doesn't make it any better. When are you gonna get that?


Brooke: Amber, this is very important to me.

Amber: I know.

Brooke: So, you'll do as I ask?

Amber: I can't.

Brooke: You have to.

Amber: I can't keep secrets from my husband anymore. It's gotten me into too much trouble in the past.

Brooke: Amber, this is different.

Amber: Well, if you tell him, then I wouldn't have to. And it wouldn't be a secret any more --

Brooke: No, no. I can't do that. I am not ready to face the questions.

Amber: Why not?

Brooke: I just can't.

Amber: Well, you don't have to tell the whole world. You know, just Rick. Your son. You know, he loves you, he'll understand.

Brooke: No, he'll never understand this.

Amber: Oh, come on, Brooke. You know, he's so worried about you. And he's always wondering what he can do to help. And if he finds out that I knew about this and I didn't tell him --

Brooke: You know what? There's nothing he can do to help. But you can, amber. You can help by giving me a little time to figure all of this out. I want to do the right thing. For Rick, for Bridget, for this baby. And the baby's father.

Brooke: Please, Amber.

Amber: Oh, am I going to regret this --

Brooke: So, you won't say anything?

Amber: Just for a couple of weeks. And then after that, you've have to tell him.

Brooke: I will. I will. I'll find a way.

Amber: He loves you, Brooke. So does Bridget. Nothing you could ever say would ever change that. You know that, don't you?


[ Phone rings ]

Eric: Eric Forrester.

Stephanie: Hello, darling.

Eric: Stephanie? Where are you?

Stephanie: I'm at the cabin.

Eric: I called there. Did you not get my message?

Stephanie: Yes, I did. I just -- I just didn't want to -- I wasn't ready to talk to you yet. I'm very sorry -- I know you must've been really worried.

Eric: Darling, what's going on?

Stephanie: I don't want to talk about it on the phone, okay.

Eric: Something is very wrong.

Stephanie: Yes, Eric.

Eric: Is it -- is it your health? Stephanie, you have to tell me.

Stephanie: I know I do. And I want to; I want to talk to you. Eric, would you drive up here, please?

Eric: Yes, yes. I'm on my way.


Deacon: Megan, I think you and I need to set up some ground rules here.

Megan: Ground rules?

Deacon: Yeah, ground rules. You can't -- if I'm gonna be working here, you can't just bring this up every time you decide to. "A," it messes with my head. And "b," someone could overhear us.

Megan: Deacon, that's not the problem. The problem is that you just don't want to think about this situation. You don't want to think about what it's gonna be like to watch your son or daughter grow up not knowing who you are. Not being able to acknowledge you're the father. And what if Brooke gets involved with someone else, huh? I mean, it could happen. She's a single, beautiful woman. And then some other man is raising your child. Could you live with that?

Deacon: Just stop it. Stop it, Megan.

Megan: No, Deacon, you are the only person that can stop this. I mean, for god's sakes. You and Brooke are in love. You're having a baby.

Deacon: Please, just stop.

Megan: But Deacon, you're acting like this is the worst thing in the world, and that's --

Brooke: Rick told me I could find you here.

Deacon: Yeah, what's up?

Brooke: Amber found out about the baby.

Deacon: What?

Brooke: Well, not that you're the father. But that I am pregnant. And she wanted to tell Rick, but I wouldn't let her.

Megan: Oh, Rick will know soon enough. Everyone will.

Brooke: Well, we have to figure out something to tell them.

Deacon: Megan and I were just discussing that.

Brooke: Did you come up with a story?

Megan: A story? Uh, no. We came up with a solution to this problem. And, Brooke, it's the only solution. You both have to be honest.

Brooke: We've been over this. We can't let Bridget know.

Megan: I'm not talking about Bridget. I am talking about yourselves. What you guys have together is the real thing. This isn't some casual attraction and some fling that you can just put out of your head. You're in love. Brooke, you're in love. And you're not gonna be able to hide it. And deacon is not gonna be able to hide his feelings for this child. Don't cheat him out of a father. Don't cheat yourselves out of a life that you could have.

Deacon: Brooke?

Brooke: You agree with her?

Deacon: I promised you that I'd keep this secret. And I will. If that's what you want. Is that what you want?

Megan: Brooke, follow your heart. One last time, just follow it. I have known you all these years and I know what you've been searching for. And this is it. Deacon is the man for you. You can't walk away from this. <
