 [ Bridget remembering ]

Brooke: Bridget can never find out that I am pregnant with your child. Pregnant with your child. With your child.


Bridget: Why did she do this to me?

Stephanie: What did you say, honey?

Bridget: Nothing. Nothing. How far are we?

Stephanie: We're almost there. Bridget, you know, you can change your mind about this. I mean, why don't I pull over, and we'll just talk it out?

Bridget: Keep driving. Mom's expecting me.


[ Phone rings ]

Brooke: Hello?

Deacon: Hi. Have you heard from Bridget? She's not here yet.

Deacon: No. You spoke to her earlier though, right?

Brooke: Yes. Yes, I did -- finally. And she's okay.

Deacon: What do you mean, "okay"?

Brooke: Well, it's late, and she's been through a lot.

Deacon: Well, then it's probably just what Stephanie said, right? A friend of hers was hurt in a boating accident.

Brooke: Well, it must be true. Why else would she be up here?

Deacon: Oh, god, Brooke. Um, are you going to see her before you leave?

Brooke: Yeah. She's going to spend the night at the cabin tonight. I just thought she'd be here by now.

Deacon: Well, she doesn't have a car. Maybe she had a -- maybe she had a tough time getting a ride.

Brooke: No. She said she was on her way over. I'm just so relieved that she didn't hear us talking in the house. In those few hours when I thought that I had lost my daughter -- it was the worst I ever felt.

Deacon: I know. I know. Me, too.

Brooke: She can never know, Deacon.

Deacon: Brooke, absolutely not. I promise. You know, we've taken way too many chances already. I've made a decision. I think Bridget and I are going to leave town for a while.

Brooke: I think that's an excellent idea. You have to be the model husband to Bridget for the rest of her life.

Deacon: I will be. Good night.


[ Car approaching ]

Brooke: Oh, she's here.

Stephanie: You don't have to do this.

Bridget: Yes, I do.

Stephanie: You could wait a few days. You know your mother is the master of manipulation. She'll just bring on the tears, she'll start working on your emotions --

Bridget: You think I'm going to fall for that? You do.

Stephanie: 'Cause you're exhausted. You're not thinking clearly.

Bridget: I can handle this. I need this. You want me to move on. How am I supposed to do that until I face her, until I tell her exactly what I think of what she's done?

Stephanie: I know. I just wish you'd listen to me, that's all.

Bridget: You know what, Stephanie? I think it's about time people started listening to me. No. I do this alone.

Stephanie: Bridget -- okay. I'll wait here for you. Maybe Brooke's the one I should be worried about.

Brooke: Oh, honey, I'm so happy to see you. You have no idea. Come in. Sit down. I want to hear about everything that's happened today. Okay. I'm going to go make some tea.


Megan: Hi. What's the latest?

Deacon: Bridget's on her way to go see Brooke.

Megan: And?

Deacon: She doesn't know anything about me and Brooke.

Megan: Oh, thank god, Deacon.

Deacon: Yeah.

Megan: You're sure?

Deacon: I'm positive. She -- she spoke to Brooke on the phone. Everything's fine.

Megan: Okay. So when Bridget was upset before, it was just about the friend in the boating accident?

Deacon: It was exactly what Stephanie said it was.

Megan: Oh, Deacon. You are so lucky. You know that?

Deacon: I know. I know I am.

Megan: I mean, to think that you and Brooke were discussing your affair with the baby monitor on, with Bridget in the house --

Deacon: Megan, this could have been such an unbelievable catastrophe. I can't even --

[ Megan sighs ]

Megan: Brooke must be so relieved.

Deacon: Yeah, she's good. She's, uh -- she's relaxed, and it's gonna stay that way.


[ Phone rings ]

Massimo: Hello?

Stephanie: Hello, mass. It's me.

Massimo: Ah.

Where are you?

Stephanie: Well, I actually -- I've just driven up to the cabin. I'm calling you from the car.

Massimo: So what's happening?

Stephanie: Bridget's gone in to talk to her mother.

Massimo: Alone?

Stephanie: She insisted.

Massimo: How could you do that? Stephanie, you've got a young woman here who has just discovered her mother is pregnant by her husband. She's out for blood.

Stephanie: Actually, I think she's pretty much in control of herself.

Massimo: Well, of course, because she's in shock. It's the calm before the storm. Look, all Brooke has to do is say one wrong thing -- and I guarantee you that she will -- and Bridget could snap!


Brooke: It's been a difficult day for you, hasn't it?

Bridget: The worst.

Brooke: I'm sorry, sweetheart. How's your friend?

Bridget: My friend? Oh, that's right. You -- you talked to Stephanie.

Brooke: Yes. She wasn't very informative. She said that your friend was in a boating accident and that you were very upset. That must have come as quite a shock.

Bridget: Yeah, it did.

Brooke: Well, your friend, she's not --?

Bridget: No, no, no. No, it didn't kill her. She'll recover. It's just going to take a really long time. She was very badly hurt.

Brooke: Oh, honey. Come sit down.

Bridget: No, thank you.

Brooke: This friend of yours, is it somebody I know?

Bridget: But she knows who you are.

Brooke: Well, is there anything that I could do?

Bridget: She doesn't want your help.

Brooke: Well, if there is, just let me know. Oh, before I forget, you should give Deacon a call.

Bridget: Actually, I want to talk to you first.

Brooke: Just a quick call, honey. He was really very worried.

Bridget: Really?

Brooke: Yes, really. I mean, you took off without telling anybody where you were going. And I know you were upset, but think about how we felt.

Bridget: You were scared?

Brooke: Yes, and I'm not just saying that to make you feel guilty. Yes, of course we were scared. I mean, you must understand that.

Bridget: Better than you know.

Brooke: Especially after everything you've been through today. You must realize that you can't just take everything for granted.

Bridget: I never will again.

Brooke: And the people that we love can be taken from you, just like that. Those few hours that you were missing, I imagined the worst. And it was really terrifying.

Bridget: You don't know what you've got till it's gone.

Brooke: I know what I have with you. You mean so much to me, Bridget.

Bridget: Let's talk about that, mom. Let's talk about how much I mean to you.


Deacon: You know, Megan, you may -- you may just be a genius.

Megan: I am?

Deacon: You know that idea you had about me and Bridget getting out of town for a while? I think that's exactly what we're gonna do.

Megan: How do you think Brooke would feel about that?

Deacon: I told her. She thinks it's a good idea. Part of me thinks that she just wants to distance herself from me, and frankly, I don't blame her one bit.

Megan: Deacon -- the thing is, there's no instruction manual for a situation like this. I mean, you and Brooke have just been trying to figure this thing out as you go along and do the best you can.

Deacon: "Do the best I can"? Well, I'd say my best has been pretty damn pathetic so far. I almost ruined Bridget's life, which definitely would have ruined Brooke's life, which would have just about killed me. All because I can't keep my big mouth shut. Can you imagine if Bridget actually heard me and Brooke talking?


Massimo: You know, Stephanie, this whole thing could get out of hand.

Stephanie: You mean turn violent? Oh, no, Mass. Bridget isn't that kind of girl at all. What I've always been worried about from the very beginning is that Brooke would somehow talk her way out of this.

Massimo: Don't tell me that she's that good a liar.

Stephanie: Well, sometimes if we want to be lied to, it makes it a little easier, doesn't it?

Massimo: And you think that Bridget would rather be in denial?

Stephanie: I don't know. I mean, I've been so worried about Bridget. You know, worried first of all that she'd find out, and then worried that once she did find out, would she survive that? But you know, it's When we were driving up here, I saw an expression on her face that I've never seen before. And somehow -- somehow, I think she will survive this. What I'm not sure about is -- is whether Brooke will survive the encounter.


Brooke: Honey, don't you know how much you mean to me?

Bridget: I'd be a fool if I didn't. I mean, you've made it so obvious.

Brooke: Well, of course. I'm closer to you than anybody on this planet.

Bridget: That's gonna change.

Brooke: Why do you say that? Oh. The baby? Don't tell me you're jealous.

Bridget: No.

Brooke: Good. Because I think this child is going to bring us closer together. Look, I really think you should call Deacon.

Bridget: Deacon is probably very relieved that I'm not there.

Brooke: That's not true.

Bridget: Yeah, I think it is.

Brooke: He was just telling me how much he misses you.

Bridget: You spoke to him?

Brooke: Yes, I just called him to tell him you were okay.

Bridget: Oh, because you were both so worried?

Brooke: Are you upset with Deacon?

[ Bridget laughs ]

Bridget: Yeah. Yeah, I am.

Brooke: Why?

Bridget: You know why.

Brooke: Is it the problem that you were having before?

Bridget: Yeah.

Brooke: You said that you weren't spending much time together.

Bridget: I also said we weren't having sex.

Brooke: But that got better, right?

Bridget: How would you know that? I mean, because you didn't want to talk about it with me, so did Deacon say something?

Brooke: No, of course not. We don't discuss your sex life. You know, I think this is a conversation you should be having with your husband.

Bridget: Oh, believe me, I will.

Brooke: Okay. Well, you know, it's getting kind of late, and I'm sure you must be tired. I certainly know I am.

Bridget: Well, of course you are, after a long day of worrying about your daughter. Quite a twist, isn't it?

Brooke: What do you mean?

Bridget: I mean, it's always been me worrying about you. For as long as I can remember -- literally, that is my first memory -- me sitting on your bed, handing you tissues while you cried over some heartbreak or another.

Brooke: Honey, I -- I didn't know that.

Bridget: Yeah, well, we don't really talk about that much, do we? The effect your life had on my life, what it's like growing up with Brooke Logan as your mother.

Brooke: Well, it couldn't have been all that bad, right? I mean, look at the end result -- the sweetest, most loving daughter that anybody could ever ask for.


Megan: So you're definitely leaving town?

Deacon: Just as soon as I can set it up.

Megan: Does that mean you'll be gone when the baby's born?

Deacon: Yeah.

Megan: I'm sorry.

Deacon: It's how it's gotta be. I mean, as hard as -- as hard as it seems, it would be so much harder for me to be here and to look into that child's eyes knowing that I can't -- I don't know that I can do it. I mean, that's reality. That's how it's gonna be.

Megan: You know, it really sounds like you're starting to accept that.

Deacon: It doesn't seem like I've got much choice, does it? You know, I'll come clean with you. There have been times when I thought in the back of my head, "would it really be that bad if Bridget found out the truth?" I think I got my answer today, didn't I? When I saw Brooke and thought that she knew the secret, I watched her fall apart in front of my eyes. And it's like so much of who Brooke is being a mother and being Bridget's best friend, and you take that away from her, and she's not even Brooke anymore.


Massimo: Are you telling me that you feel pity for that -- that woman?

Stephanie: No. Brooke brought this on herself. She's going to have to deal with the consequences.

Massimo: Unfortunately, so will Bridget.

Stephanie: She'll never be the same.

Massimo: You know, Stephanie, sooner or later, we all have to face life's cruelty. But some of us cannot come through with our innocence intact.

Stephanie: That's true. I just wish it had been, I don't know, somehow different, not stolen from her all at one time, you know? That's the one thing I'm never gonna be able to forgive Brooke for.

Massimo: Chances are, neither will her daughter.


Brooke: Bridget, would you rather be alone?

Bridget: Oh, you don't want to have this conversation?

Brooke: No, it's not that. It's just --

Bridget: Well, good, because I would like to hear a little bit more about how sweet I am and how innocent and trusting.

Brooke: What's going on?

Bridget: Tell me how much you rely on me.

Brooke: You know I do.

Bridget: You always have. Ever since I was a child, Rick and I were the ones you would turn to when the rest of the world -- well, let's face it. There were times when nobody wanted anything to do with you, and we were left to defend you -- two children.

Brooke: Defend me?

Bridget: God. You didn't even know it was happening, did you? I mean, you had no clue the things people were saying about you.

Brooke: You're talking about Stephanie?

Bridget: No, I'm not just talking about Stephanie. I'm talking about teachers, and I'm talking about coaches and other kids when they didn't think I could hear. Total strangers, people in line at the grocery store.

Brooke: Honey, why would you even care about that?

Bridget: Because I loved you! Because you were my mother! And they would say such horrible things! And they didn't even know you! And you know, that's what I told them. I would say, "if you knew my mother, you wouldn't say things like that. You wouldn't think things like that, because she is a wonderful, wonderful person, and I am so proud to be her daughter!"

Brooke: Oh, honey.

[ Bridget sobs ] sweetheart, why is this coming up now?

Bridget: Because now I know that they were right and I was wrong.

Brooke: What? What do you mean?

Bridget: They were right. I know the truth, mother. I know!
