The Bold and The Beautiful Transcript Tuesday 6/25/02
>> Erica: Do you really think I look good?
>> Rick: It's gorgeous on you.
>> Erica: Thank you. Is it really your favorite?
>> Rick: Yes.
>> Erica: I don't even have to ask why. I mean, it's stunning. Your father is a genius. Being in this dress, I'm not Erica Lovejoy. I feel like a completely different person.
>> Bridget: How could she do this to me?
>> Stephanie: I don't know, honey. I'm sorry. I don't understand it myself. Mass.
>> Massimo: Stephanie. Good. Okay. So what can we do to help?
>> Stephanie: Well, what I told you on the phone. Bridget's gonna spend a few days with us.
>> Massimo: Okay.
>> Bridget: I shouldn't be here.
>> Stephanie: Of course you should. This is just the place to be. No one can find you here. No one can bother you.
>> Bridget: Okay. I have to go lie down.
>> Massimo: Oh, okay. That's fine. Look, I had the guest bedroom made up.
>> Stephanie: Sweetheart, you're going to be all right. We just need some time to sort everything out -- without your mother around.
>> Deacon: So that's what Bridget was so upset about. One of her friends was in a boating accident.
>> Brooke: Well, that's what Stephanie said. She must have gotten the call right after the baby shower and her friends picked her up at the guest house and they drove up to big bear lake.
>> Deacon: And you haven't heard from her, have you?
>> Brooke: No.
>> Deacon: Neither have I.
>> Brooke: Well, if she's in the hospital, maybe she can't use her cell phone.
>> Deacon: Yeah, and you know, look -- you can't even get any reception in the mountains up there, so --
>> Brooke: The point is, she didn't hear us talking. She doesn't know about our affair or this baby. Our secret is safe. And it's going to stay that way.
>> Stephanie: If you'll just get into bed and just try and rest a little, all right?
>> Bridget: Thank you.
>> Stephanie: You're safe here now. No one can bother you.
>> Bridget: Thank you.
>> Massimo: You're free to stay here as long as you need to.
>> Stephanie: Honey, you need time to digest this. Would you like me to call Taylor?
>> Bridget: No. No, I don't want to talk to anyone. I just want to be alone. Please -- I need to be alone.
>> Stephanie: All right.
>> Erica: Rick, can I say something really cheesy?
>> Rick: In that dress? Trust me, you could read a birthday card out loud and it wouldn't be cheesy.
>> Erica: It's just that this is such an incredibly special moment for me -- being here with you, having dinner with you and little Eric, being in this house. And now, I'm standing here, wearing a Forrester original. God, it's just like something out of a dream.
>> Rick: Yeah. The past few weeks have been kind of surreal for me, too.
>> Erica: I know you've been going through a really rough time. I don't want you to think that I am just some star-struck teenager who thinks your life is perfect. I did when I first came to L.A. I had all these expectations about your city and your family.
>> Rick: I guess we kind of shattered those, huh?
>> Erica: No, Rick. My expectations haven't been shattered at all. They've been exceeded. You've just surpassed them all.
>> Brooke: When I think of what could have happened -- if Bridget overheard us.
>> Deacon: She didn't.
>> Brooke: Well, not this time.
>> Deacon: Brooke -- there isn't gonna be a next time. You've got my word on that.
>> Brooke: No exceptions, Deacon. That was it. I get nervous just talking about it.
>> Deacon: Listen, relax. Come on. She's up in big bear.
>> Brooke: Well, we can't be too careful. We were in the nursery and the door was closed. I didn't think to check for a baby monitor.
>> Deacon: Listen, you're sure she didn't hear anything?
>> Brooke: Stephanie saw her and Bridget wouldn't lie. And if she had found out, she would have said something.
>> Deacon: Yeah, and beside that, if Stephanie knew, she sure as hell would have let you have it. Right there.
>> Brooke: Right. But she didn't. It's just--
>> Deacon: It's just what?
>> Brooke: I don't know. Something just doesn't feel quite right. I can't explain it. I know I should feel relieved. But for some reason, I'm not.
>> Massimo: Let me understand this -- Brooke is pregnant with deacon's child?
>> Stephanie: Yes.
>> Massimo: Her daughter's husband? My god.
[ Massimo sighs ] I thought you said it was over, that they had stopped.
>> Stephanie: Well, obviously, not soon enough.
>> Massimo: So Bridget overheard them while they were talking about it.
>> Stephanie: After the baby shower, apparently Brooke and Deacon were upstairs in the nursery. And Bridget heard them downstairs talking over the baby monitor.
>> Massimo: That poor girl.
>> Stephanie: She's devastated.
>> Massimo: Deva -- of course, she's devastated. My god, I can't imagine what she must feel like. She's never gonna recover from this, Stephanie.
>> Stephanie: Oh, yes, she will, mass. I'm going to make sure that she does.
>> Massimo: Stephanie, Brooke has been sleeping with her daughter's husband! If that's not disgusting enough, she's carrying deacon's child!
>> Stephanie: Yes, I know. She is a slut. I think that's safe to say. But you know something, Bridget is a strong girl. She's not going to let her mother derail the rest of her life. She's not.
>> Massimo: How? How in god's name is this kid ever going to get over this?
>> Stephanie: I don't know. But she will. Brooke is not going to destroy her life. I wasn't able to save Macy, but I am going to do everything that I can to save Bridget. Somehow, I'll get her through this.
>> Bridget: How could you do it, Deacon? How could you? All this time -- I thought you loved me.
[ Bridget remembering ]
>> Deacon: Bridget, before I
say "I do," I
want you to know --
"love, honor, cherish,"
those were just words to me
before I met you.
I thought I knew
what they meant,
but I didn't.
It's so amazing to me.
Every time I think I know
the depth of your love
for me, you just --
you manage to take it deeper.
I mean, look at this --
tonight, just like this.
I don't know what I've
done in my life that's right
or what I've done to
But you blow me away.
And I want to do the
same thing for you.
So I don't care how long
it takes or what I have to do.
You're gonna see.
I will never
disappoint you again.
>> Bridget: It was all a lie!
[ Bridget sobs ]
>> Erica: I can't believe I just said that. It's like wearing this dress is making me all giddy.
>> Rick: All that magic is going straight to your head.
>> Erica: It's so crazy. Stuff like this just doesn't happen -- not to people like me. I can't believe I am standing in your living room, wearing the most incredible dress I've ever seen. I feel so elegant, like an old-time movie star.
>> Rick: What is that? A waltz?
>> Erica: Yeah. My mother made me take ballroom dancing when I was little.
>> Rick: Oh, me, too. We had to take it at school.
>> Erica: You're lucky. I had to go this special class that was only for grown-ups. I had to dance with old Mrs. Jessup. She was the only person even close to my height.
>> Rick: Well, she must've been a good partner. Because you are obviously a good dancer.
>> Erica: I hated every minute of it.
>> Rick: Yeah, my dad told me that dancing would help my balance and therefore make me a better soccer player.
>> Erica: My mother told me it would help me to meet the right kind of boys.
>> Rick: Did it?
>> Erica: Not really.
>> Rick: So I take it you quit, then.
>> Erica: Oh, no. My mother doesn't believe in quitting. Once you start something, you just have to finish it, no matter what.
>> Rick: You know, it sounds to me like your mother and my father would hit it off right away.
>> Erica: That's a funny thought. I could never picture my mom on a date. She gives me a lot of advice, you know. But you know what they say -- those who can't do, teach.
>> Rick: Oh, I'm sure that's not the case.
>> Erica: Not with most people. But it's definitely true about my mother.
>> Rick: You guys don't get along?
>> Erica: Things have been kind of tense lately. It's hard, moving -- pulling up all your roots, you know? But I try to cut her as much slack as I can. I owe her that. She's given up a lot for me -- always sent me to the best schools, stashes money in my college fund. She really cares a lot about my future, wants me to really be somebody.
>> Rick: Well, I'm sure if your mother could see you right now, she'd be very proud of you.
>> Erica: Yeah. Yeah, I bet she would.
[ Bridget sobbing ]
>> Bridget: Oh, god. I've been such a fool.
>> Rick: Thank you. I really haven't danced like that in a long time.
>> Erica: Rick, I don't know if this is appropriate, but -- I want to confess something to you. It's not awful. It's not about little Eric or anything.
>> Rick: What is it?
>> Erica: You probably already know. It's pretty obvious. I have a crush on you.
>> Rick: Yeah, I kinda got that.
>> Erica: Oh, god. I'm so embarrassed.
>> Rick: Don't be.
>> Erica: It's just -- I have never met anybody like you before. There is nobody like you. Seriously, the way you are with Eric. The way you've been with Amber. You're so patient and understanding. You're even more wonderful than I thought you'd be.
>> Rick: Yeah. I guess you're right. I am pretty wonderful. And I'm pretty modest, too. You know --
>> Erica: Is this okay? I mean, you don't feel uncomfortable or anything?
>> Rick: No, no. I'm flattered. You're a very special person, too, Erica.
>> Erica: Thank you.
>> Rick: So -- do you have anything else you want to confess?
>> Erica: Uh, no. No, that's it for right now. I'm gonna go upstairs and get changed.
>> Rick: Okay.
>> Erica: And I'll check on little Eric, too.
>> Rick: All right. Erica? Thank you.
>> Erica: No, Rick. Thank you. Again. For everything.
[ Erica sighs ] what a night!
>> Deacon: You're gonna feel a lot better once you talk to Bridget.
>> Brooke: I just wish she'd call and let us know that she's all right.
>> Deacon: She will.
>> Brooke: I don't know why she didn't call before she left. It's not like her to run off and not --
>> Deacon: Brooke, calm down, she's upset. Her friend's in the hospital.
>> Brooke: I know. I know, and that's terrible. I just can't help thinking what might have happened if she had found out about the baby.
>> Deacon: Hey. We're not going to talk about this anymore, are we?
>> Brooke: You're right. It's too dangerous.
>> Deacon: The subject's closed. I'm not gonna bring it up again.
>> Brooke: That's the way it has to be.
>> Deacon: I think I'm gonna go now, wait for Bridget to call at home.
>> Brooke: Well, let me know if you hear anything from her, okay?
>> Deacon: Absolutely. As soon as I know. Brooke, Bridget's fine. Everything is going to be okay. Everything.
>> Bridget: I trusted you -- the two people I trusted most. And all along -- all along.
>> Massimo: So you're saying that Brooke does not know that Bridget knows. You lied to her.
>> Stephanie: Yes, of course, I did. I had to. I couldn't let Bridget walk in on the two of us at the guest house. I had to get Brooke out of there some way.
>> Massimo: But she knows something is wrong.
>> Stephanie: Oh, yeah. Eric had said that Bridget was very upset. I have to tell you, mass, it took -- it took everything in me not to say something to her.
>> Massimo: Well, listen, I gotta hand it to you, let me tell you. Because I don't think I could have done it.
>> Stephanie: Of course you could have. If you love someone as much as I love Bridget, you could have done it.
[ Cell phone rings ]
>> Brooke: Bridget? Are you there? Hello? Honey, it's mom. Can you hear me?
[ Bridget screams ]
>> Bridget: You're no mother to me! Not anymore.
