Stephanie: You're gonna eat the whole thing?

Eric: Well, not the whole thing. You're gonna help me.

Stephanie: Oh, no, no, no, no.

Eric: No, c'mon -- have one bite.

Stephanie: Get that thing away from me.

Brooke: Oh, hi.

Stephanie: Hi.

Eric: Hey.

Stephanie: No -- say no.

Brooke: No. I left some of the baby's laundry here last night.

Stephanie: Oh, okay. Do you believe that thing?

Brooke: Well, it's good to see he got his appetite back. Megan said you called in sick.

Eric: Yup, yup.

Stephanie: Shh, don't tell anybody, especially the boss. He played hooky.

Brooke: Well, good. You need some downtime.

Eric: Downtime?

Stephanie: I'm afraid I kept him a little busier.

Brooke: Really? What'd you do?

Stephanie: Ah, well, we went for a picnic up in the San Gabriels.

Eric: Yeah, and then we hiked -- we hiked to a waterfall.

Stephanie: Well, you know how beautiful the mountains are this time of year. And on the way home, we went to some antique stores.

[ Eric mumbles ]

Brooke: Four?

Eric: Mm-hmm.

Stephanie: Was it that many?

Eric: Yes, it was.

Stephanie: Well, you had me in and out of them so fast, who could count?

Eric: Ah, well, all I know is I need to get back to work to get some rest for my day off.

Stephanie: Oh, poor boy. Stay here and rest. I'll go pick up the kids.

Brooke: The kids?

Stephanie: Ridge and Taylor have some big dinner planned. I don't know. Okay, I'll be back.

Eric: Bye.

Stephanie: Bye-bye.

Brooke: Wow. Stephanie sure seems to be in a good mood.

Eric: We had fun today.

Brooke: And you had fun last night?

                        ********************************************************************************************

Amber: And then all the little people in the town, and everybody was happy, and everybody lived happily, happily, happily ever after

                        *************************************************************************************

Taylor: Okay, sweetheart, look -- I know things are a little tense between you and Rick, but they really do need to spend time together as a family.

Ridge: The family is breaking up. This is just denial on all of their parts.

Taylor: It doesn't change the fact that children need their parents.

                        ******************************************************************************************

Amber: Yay, that's the end.

Little Eric: Again.

Amber: Again? You want me to read it again? Okay, sure. B

Rick: Um, actually Amber, I think Eric and I have to get going.

Amber: Oh, you can stay a little longer.

Rick: Please, don't make me the bad guy here, okay? He's got a routine and he needs to stick to it, and besides, ridge made it pretty clear that he wants us out of here when they leave.

                        *****************************************************************************************

Ridge: No. It's bad enough having Amber here. The two of them here, unsupervised? Forget it. Don't do this to me.

Taylor: What?

Ridge: That look, I know that look. Look, amber should be grateful. If it wasn't for you, they'd be visiting her in jail.

Taylor: I know I know, sweetheart, but the nights are especially difficult for her, you know? She would like to be with her son and tucking him in. And I just don't like the idea of her being left her by herself.

                        ************************************************************************************

Sheila: So, this is the night. It's gonna happen for you and Rick.

Erica: Don't count on it, mom.

Sheila: No, but I am. Your ovulation test was positive.

Erica: Yeah, but hanging out with him -- that's not enough to get me pregnant. I have to get him to make love to me, and so far he's not showing any interest.

Sheila: Look, he's interested, sweetheart. He's just holding back out of loyalty, which is a good thing. If he were the kind of man that would betray his wife for any pretty girl that came along, you wouldn't wan I'm his best friend, and I'm in love with him.

Sheila: Exactly. And that's what you have to emphasize. Now, you have to show him that you're there for him. That you'll always be there for him in any crisis, unlike Amber. And when the next crisis comes along, he's gonna turn to you.

Erica: Huh. Too bad you can't schedule one to coordinate with my cycle.

Sheila: Who says we can't?

                        *************************************************************************************

Amber: Mm, I'm sorry, honey. Daddy's right. You gotta go home. It's bedtime now.

Little Eric: I want you to come with me.

Amber: Oh, I'm sorry, baby, but I can't -- but you know what? I'm gonna be thinking about you every second, okay? And you know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna write a song for you. Okay? All about how much I love you, and the next time I see you, I'm gonna sing it to you, okay? Good-night, my sweet angel.

Rick: C'mon, buddy. C'mon.

Little Eric: Want mommy!

Rick: I know. Good-night, Taylor. Thank you.

Taylor: Good-night, Rick. Bye.

Amber: It's so hard.

Taylor: I know, but we'll keep trying. We'll do whatever we have to prove you're innocent. We'll get you back home with your family.

Amber: You have to help me find them, Taylor. Whoever's helping Erica ruin my life -- they're out there somewhere, and they're just loving it. I know it.

Taylor: We will find them, okay? But in the meantime, you have to sit tight. Will you give me your word on that?

Amber: I promise.

                        ************************************************************************************

Rick: Hang on, buddy. Ridge.

Ridge: Rick, I'm gonna say something to you, and you're not gonna like it.

Rick: Big surprise.

Ridge: She says all the right things, she cries those big crocodile tears -- it's not gonna change what she's done. It's not gonna change what she's gonna keep on doing.

Rick: You don't know Amber.

Ridge: Rick, I've been living with her, haven't I? Look, I'm still your brother, and I still care about you. And I really hate to see her keep pulling your chain like this.

Rick: C'mon, buddy. Good-night.

                        *************************************************************************************

Erica: Mom, I was kidding.

Sheila: I know.

Erica: Look, I don't need a crisis to help me get close to Rick.

Sheila: Oh, I think you do. I think that's exactly what you need. I think it's what Rick needs -- to see how much he really does depend on you, and how misguided his loyalties to Amber really are.

Erica: Look, you've done enough to Amber, Mom. You threw her out of her house, you made her look like a criminal and an addict if- from here, I can take this on my own.

Sheila: You're the one that said that everything you're doing hasn't been working, and that's my fault, because I misguided you. If you want to be a partner to a Forrester man, you have to be his equal on every level, Erica. Sophisticated, intelligent, charming, and more important than that, faithful. Unwavering in your devotion to him. Now, these men, they lead stress-filled, intense lives, and they're looking for a partner that they can trust completely. A woman who's gonna run their house with authority. Who's going to give their children love, fill their hearts with it. A good mother, that's what they want. That is what is most appealing to them, and that is where women like Amber and Brooke go wrong, and people like Stephanie and Taylor -- and soon to be you, my darling -- are gonna get it right.

Erica: I am somebody that Rick can depend on.

Sheila: Which is why you belong with him and not Amber!

Erica: How am I supposed to prove that to him in one night?

Sheila: You be there for him, Erica. You be there for him in one of his darkest moments.

Erica: Mom -- oh god, what are you gonna do?

Sheila: You let me worry about that.

Erica: Mom, listen.

Sheila: You just do what you've wanted to do from the first moment you laid eyes on Rick. You go take care of your man.

                        ***************************************************************************************

Brooke: Well, it's all right. I won't ask you to kiss and tell. I can put the pieces together myself. You went over to see Stephanie last night, and today she is positively glowing.

Eric: We are doing better than we have in a long time.

Brooke: Good. I'm really happy for you, Eric. I really am.

Stephanie: I'm sorry I'm late, but, you know -- a little bit of rain goes a long way in California. Everyone was driving five miles an hour!

Ridge: That's all right, we've got plenty of time.

Taylor: Well, I can't tell you how excited the kids are that they're coming to spend the night with you and Eric.

Stephanie: Oh, good.

Ridge: So much so, we're gonna send Steffy without you-know-what.

Stephanie: The security blanket? Oh, my lord.

Taylor: Mm-hmm. We're keeping our fingers crossed.

Stephanie: Uh-huh.

Taylor: I'm going to go up and say good-night to them, and then they're all yours.

Ridge: Lucky you.

Stephanie: Yeah. Oh, I didn't see you sitting over there -- hi.

Amber: Hi. Guess you got the kids tonight, huh?

Stephanie: Yeah, I'm gonna take them back to the house, and Eric and I are gonna make pizza.

Amber: Ridge didn't trust me enough to baby-sit, I guess.

Stephanie: Are you all right?

Amber: Rick just left with Eric.

Stephanie: I'm sorry, honey. I know how difficult this is for you.

Amber: But you think I deserve it.

Stephanie: Deserve it?

Amber: You think I deserve to lose my family.

Stephanie: Oh, Amber, honey -- I don't know. I mean, I put a lot of faith in what Taylor says --

Amber: Yeah, but not me. Do you know how much that hurts me? You're talking to someone who saved your life once! Just forget it. Just forget it.

                        *************************************************************************************

Brooke: Wow, what's all this?

Eric: Stephanie's idea. We're gonna keep the kids occupied making pizzas.

Brooke: Oh, messy -- they'll love it.

Eric: Yeah, they will, too. Stephanie and I used to do this with our kids, make pizzas. You should have seen Ridge's -- they were very, very creative.

Brooke: Mm-hmm, probably hourglass-shaped with little pepperonis.

Eric: That's exactly what he did, yes.

Brooke: Oh, it's so great. You and Stephanie have so much history to fall back on -- so many memories!

Eric: Yeah, yeah we do. And in spite of that, I still had to come to you for relationship advice.

Brooke: Yeah, but I can see why you were confused. She was giving you mixed signals.

Eric: I should have taken the initiative with her a long time ago.

Brooke: I guess things happen the way they're supposed to.

Eric: You believe that?

Brooke: No. Actually, all these wonderful things happened in my life before I was even ready to appreciate them.

Eric: Like what, for instance?

Brooke: Parenthood.

Eric: That was my fault.

Brooke: No, I wouldn't have it any other way. Otherwise, I wouldn't have Rick and Bridget. I just wish I would've been more mature, more prepared.

Eric: The way you are now, with Hope?

Brooke: Well, I'm not sure about that.

Eric: Yeah, don't be so modest. Stephanie's been telling me all about how impressed she is with how different you are now.

Brooke: Yeah, she's been telling me the same thing, and it means a lot to me.

Eric: You've always wanted her approval, haven't you?

Brooke: Yes, but now I want something more. I would like to repay her, because she has been a lifeline to me for the last few months.

Eric: Uh-huh -- that's it.

Brooke: What?

Eric: That's why you sent me over to her guesthouse last night, to repay a debt.

Brooke: Don't be ridiculous!

Eric: Well, what's ridiculous about that?

Brooke: Well, first of all, you're not mine to give away, are you?
