Bridget: Stephanie! Hurry up! Mom says the baby's coming.

 Stephanie: Is she sure?

[ Brooke moaning ]

 Bridget: That can't be right! She just started having contractions.

 Stephanie: Well, you know, deliveries are always different. It could be 15 minutes, it could be all night.

 Brooke: It's happening now!

 Stephanie: Okay. Bridget, get over there and take the other half of this sheet. We gotta get her down on the floor.

 Brooke: On the floor?

Stephanie: Yeah. You can't have it up on the couch. We gotta get you down flat. Wait, wait, wait, wait!

[ Talking over each other ] don't push! For god's sake, don't push!

[ Brooke moaning ] don't push!

 Bridget: Stephanie, pass me another pillow over there.

 Stephanie: Okay.

 Brooke: Oh, god! Oh! The baby! The baby's coming!

 Stephanie: Bridget, go wash your hands, okay? There's some soap in the kitchen.

[ Brooke moaning ]

 Stephanie: All right.

 Brooke: I feel its head!

 Bridget: Oh, my god!

 Stephanie: Don't -- just hold onto her. Just -- all right. All right, calm down. Calm down. Calm down. All right. You're gonna push. All right. God help us. Push hard. Now. Push. That's it. Push. Push.

[ Brooke moaning ]


 Doctor: Amber, are you sure you want to do this?

 Amber: Yes, doctor, I'm ready.

 Doctor: You understand your work is only beginning. You haven't been cured from your addiction. You've just been given the tools to fight it.

 Amber: I know. And the last few weeks have been tough, but it's a lot harder out there.

 Doctor: That's right. This is a sterile environment. There are no temptations here.

 Amber: I know what's out there. I've got a job. I've got a husband who loves me and a gorgeous little boy who misses his mommy very, very much. But my first priority is staying clean. And if I'm not committed to my sobriety, then nothing else matters.

 Doctor: You have to do it for yourself, not for Rick or even your son.

 Amber: Yeah. You don't have to remind me. I got it. You know, this is my life. This is my body and my future. And I can't blame anyone else for my problems, and I can't take drugs to avoid them. I have to take responsibility.

 Doctor: And what have you learned about responsibility?

 Amber: Well, it's not the same thing as guilt. There are some things in this life that can't be changed. And I just have to focus on the things that can. And I'm gonna do that. Starting tonight.

 Doctor: Sure you don't wanna wait for your husband?

 Amber: No. No, I wanna do this on my own. You know, Rick brought me here, and I just wanna take myself home.

 Doctor: You realize that reentry may be a shock. Now, the first few weeks out of rehab can be very disconcerting.

 Amber: I can handle it. I'm not scared, doctor. I'm excited. I feel like I've been given a second chance. And everything that I've learned here about my life and about myself, it's really changed me. You know, I know who I am now. I don't have to pretend, and I don't have to be perfect. I just have to live my life every day with honor and integrity. And I have to learn to ask for help when need it. But most of all, I have to honor myself and my sobriety.

 Doctor: You've done well, Amber. I'm very proud of you.

 Amber: Thank you, doctor. I'm very proud of myself, too.


 Thorne: So Amber's coming home tomorrow?

 Rick: Yeah, I'm picking her up first thing in the morning.

 Thorne: You nervous?

 Rick: What, about seeing her again? No, no, Thorne, she's my wife. I miss her.

 Thorne: Yeah, of course, you do, Rick. We all do. It's just that, you said you needed to talk, and you do seem a little wound up.

 Rick: Well, you know, maybe I'm just excited.

 Thorne: Rick, I know what you're going through. Okay? Sure, you're excited. You can't wait to see Amber again. But there is a part of you that's a little scared. Hey, it's okay, man. All right? It's nothing to be ashamed of. Your wife has a dependency problem. And she just got out of rehab. It's all right to be a little nervous.

 Rick: Somebody talked, Thorne.

 Thorne: What?

 Rick: I got a call from Jonathan this afternoon. "The Inquisitor" is running a story about Amber's drug problem. The secret's out. Amber's gonna be on the cover of every tabloid in the supermarket.

 Thorne: You're kidding me. "The Inquisitor"?

 Rick: They're turning this into a huge scandal.

 Thorne: Oh, poor Amber.

 Rick: This is not what she needs right now.

 Thorne: What can you do?

 Rick: Nothing. This is so frustrating. Everything was finally coming together. Amber recognized her drug problem, and she dealt with it. Her and dad created the coolest inventory of clothing that we have ever had. All we had to do was keep our problems away from the press.

Rick: Yeah, but we're talking about national coverage here, Thorne.

 Thorne: No, no, we're talking about Amber's sobriety. Listen, I learned this from Macy. Rick, dependency is a shield. It's the addict's way of blocking out all the ugliness and the negativity in their lives, okay? Now, whether that be the end of a marriage or the loss of the child, they use the addiction to avoid the truth, Rick. Now, if amber's recovery is going to be a success, she can't do that anymore, okay? She has to face reality. No matter how traumatic or no matter how upsetting it is.

 Rick: So you think I should prepare her?

 Thorne: Yes. And you let her deal with it, Rick.

 Rick: She's just getting out of rehab.

 Thorne: I know. And it's gonna be a big adjustment for both of you. Bigger than you realize. But, Rick, you can't coddle her.

 Rick: Yeah? Well, I'm not gonna leave her out for the wolves either. As soon as this story hits, there is going to be reporters everywhere.

 Thorne: This is amber's life now, Rick. She is a celebrity. And everything that she does from now on is going to be common knowledge, whether she likes it or not.

 Rick: Yeah, but what if she's not ready? What if she can't deal with this?

 Thorne: Rick, your wife just went through a very intense self-evaluation process. Okay? She may be better equipped to deal with this than at any other time in her life. But the question is -- can you?

 Rick: Can I what?

 Thorne: Can you deal with this? Think about what this would mean, Rick. For you, for Amber and for little Eric. Are you ready for the biggest challenge that you've ever faced?


[ Brooke moaning ]

 Stephanie: One, two, three, push!

 Bridget: Can you see anything?

 Stephanie: No, not yet. Oh, please, don't let this be a breech birth.

[ Brooke breathing heavily ] easy, breathe. Okay, now, Brooke, you can do this. You know you can do it. We both know childbirth is the most natural thing in the world.

 Bridget: Right, Mom. Women do it all the time.

 Stephanie: Okay. One, two, three, push!

 Bridget: Good, mom! Keep pushing, keep pushing! Right?

 Stephanie: Yeah. Don't stop now! Keep pushing.

 Bridget: Okay. Okay, you're doing so good. We're almost there.

 Stephanie: Oh, my god! Oh, my god!

Brooke: What?

 Stephanie: I can see the head. Brooke, I can see the head.

 Bridget: Okay, okay, this is it. Okay, we need you -- we need you to bear down and keep pushing. Ready, one, two, three.

[ Brooke moaning ] push!

Stephanie: Push! That's it. It's coming! It's coming! It's coming!

 Brooke: My baby!

 Stephanie: It's coming!

 Bridget: Push, mom, push!

 Stephanie: Oh, my god. It's a baby girl! Oh, my god, look. Look, it's a beautiful baby girl!

 Brooke: Oh, my god.

 Stephanie: Look at you. Look at you.

[ Stephanie laughing ] look at you, how beautiful. Look at you. How beautiful.


 Rick: Look, I can deal with the challenge. That's second nature with this family.

 Thorne: Well then, what are you worried about?

 Rick: You know, you say that amber's gonna be fine and that she's gonna come back better than ever. But I don't see how that's possible. Okay? She has an addiction. A few weeks in rehab is not gonna change that.

 Thorne: No, but it will give her a way to deal with it, Rick.

 Rick: What? With, like, a 12-step program?

 Thorne: Or something similar. She'll tell you all about it.

 Rick: I don't know, Thorne. Amber's not into that new-age stuff. You know, she doesn't read self-help books. She reads fashion magazines.

 Thorne: Well, she may be a little different now.

 Rick: How?

 Thorne: I can't tell you that, Rick. Everyone gets something different out of rehab. But I can tell you this -- recovery is an ongoing process. And it's going to be a big part of your lives. You know, you might want to even find a group of your own, a support group for partners of addicts.

 Rick: Why?

 Thorne: So you can talk about your feelings, Rick. What this is like for you.

 Rick: Look, Thorne, Amber is the one who's in recovery. Ultimately, this is gonna be up to her.

 Thorne: Look, Rick, I'm not trying to scare you, okay? And I'm not saying that living with someone in recovery is a miserable experience. You and amber's life can be just as fulfilling and enjoyable as it was in the past. But there are going to be a lot more challenges now.

 Rick: More?

 Thorne: Yes, Rick. Look, I'm being straightforward here, okay? Amber is not under the weather. She is not recovering from the flu. She is recovering from a drug addiction, and she's going to be recovering for the rest of her life. This is a whole new ball game, little brother, with its own set of rules. Rules that you're gonna have to learn to live by if you wanna be a part of your wife's life. Now, I'll ask you again -- are you ready for that?


 Stephanie: Okay, the cord is cut, and it's tied. And I think it'll hold. We'll be all right until the doctor gets here. Turn your mother around. Get her more comfortable.

 Bridget: Okay.

Brooke: Thank you.

 Stephanie: Okay. All right. It's okay.

 Brooke: Oh. A girl. A beautiful little girl.

 Stephanie: She seems to be healthy.

 Bridget: She's perfect.

 Stephanie: Yes. Yes, you are. Okay? Hold on. There she is.

 Brooke: Hi, sweetheart. Thank you.

 Stephanie: You did all the work.

 Brooke: I couldn't have done it without the both of you.

 Bridget: We just delivered a baby. I can't believe it.

 Stephanie: I guess angels were watching over you tonight.

Bridget: I should -- I should go call the hospital and let them know what happened.

 Stephanie: Yes, and please make sure the doctor is still coming.

 Brooke: Bridget, wait. Stephanie, do you mind?

 Stephanie: Okay, I'll try and find a blanket for the baby.

 Brooke: Honey, thank you for being here and for helping.

 Bridget: I didn't do anything.

 Brooke: Well, you didn't leave.

 Bridget: You were in labor. Stephanie couldn't deliver the baby by herself.

 Brooke: Look, I know you're still angry with me. And you have every right to be. What Deacon and I did, it was wrong, and I know that --

 Bridget: Let's just not talk about that now. Okay? You need to rest.

 Brooke: Regardless of how you feel about me, this baby, this sweet, innocent, little child is your half sister. You helped bring her into this world. You witnessed her first breath in the same room where you had yours. Yes, that's right. Both of my precious, little daughters were born right here in this cabin. So you're connected, Bridget. And I love you both so much. Would you like to hold her?

 Bridget: Okay.

 Brooke: It's okay. Here you go. Here's your sister. There's you sister.


 Rick: Thorne, I know where you're coming from, but Macy and Amber -- they're different people.

 Thorne: Yes, Rick, but the disease is the same. Okay? Dependency, addiction. It doesn't matter if you're hooked on pills or the bottle. It's a challenge, Rick. And it's a challenge for the addict and for everyone who cares about them.

Rick: Amber and I don't need any more challenges. Things are supposed to be better. Rehab is supposed to make Amber better.

 Thorne: Look, Rick, I'm sorry, okay? I didn't mean to freak you out here. You and Amber have been through a lot, and I'm sure that you'll get through this as well. Okay. You know what? I should get going. It's getting late, buddy, and you gotta get up early.

 Rick: Yeah.

 Thorne: I'm sorry that I couldn't have been more help.

Rick: No, no, thank you. You were straight with me, and I really appreciate it.

Thorne: Listen, give my love to Amber, okay? And call me if you need anything.

 Rick: I will. And again, thank you. You've really given me a lot to think about.

 Thorne: All right, man. See you tomorrow.

[ Rick sighs ]

 Rick: Amber?

 Amber: Surprise.

 Rick: Wait a minute. I thought -- what -- hey! So what are you doing here? I thought I was supposed to pick you up tomorrow.

 Amber: Yeah. They let me out for good behavior.

 Rick: How are you feeling?

 Amber: Great. I mean, I was great. But now that I'm here -- I think I might need to be alone.

 Rick: Wait a minute, Amber. You just got here.

 Amber: Yeah, but the guesthouse is empty, and I'm sure your dad wouldn't mind if I stayed there for a few weeks. You know, focus on my recovery.

 Rick: A few weeks? Amber, what are you talking about?

 Amber: I think this is best for everybody.


 Bridget: She's so amazing.

 Stephanie: Bridget, you wanna call the hospital? I can clean the baby up.

 Bridget: That's okay, Stephanie. I'm fine.

 Brooke: I know you weren't looking forward to this moment. Just seeing her and what she represents. But you know, there's nothing ugly about her. She's so beautiful. Such a sweet, innocent, little child.

 Stephanie: Deacon's child, Bridget.

 Brooke: She's my child. Both of you are.

 Bridget: The most horrifying day of my life ends with this -- this miracle.

 Stephanie: Honey, don't forget and don't get swept up in the emotion of the moment. Remember why you came here.

 Bridget: I know. Here, mother. Take the baby.

 Brooke: It's okay.

 Bridget: This is your only daughter now. I'm not your child anymore. She is. And I hope you love her, honor and respect her, and that you give her everything. Everything you weren't able to give me.

 Brooke: Bridget, Bridget, no. Don't do this.

Bridget: I know you didn't mean to hurt me. You just made a mistake. A terrible, unforgivable mistake. You slept with my husband. You betrayed my trust. You broke a bond that I thought was sacred. I can't ever forget what you've done. And I can't forgive you. But I don't hate you, Mother. I don't hate you.
