Stephanie: Ridge? Brooke? What's going on here? What are you doing?

Brooke: Nothing. We aren't doing anything.

Stephanie: I thought I told you to leave him alone. And what do you do? You run right over here and wrap yourself around him!


Sally: You know, Clarke, I'm not so sure this reunion idea is such a good idea. Maybe you ought to give it some time. Give it a couple of days. Feel the boys out before you drop this bomb on them, hmm?

Clarke: You say that like meeting your long-lost brother is a bad thing.

Sally: I'm simply saying, we have no idea how either one of them is going to react.

Clarke: They're gonna be thrilled.

Sally: They are grown men, Clarke. And each of them has spent his entire life believing he was the only son in his respective family.

Clarke: What does that have to do with anything, huh? Sally, I have to introduce them.

Sally: All right. But be careful how you do it. If you really want a bond to form between those two boys, then you have to make sure that they get started off on the right foot.

Clarke: Oh, don't be such a worrywart. Those two are gonna get along just fine.


Mark: A sucker punch. That's about what I'd expect from you.

C.J.: Really? Want another one?

Mark: I'm not gonna waste my energy pulverizing some slacker punk coffee-grinder. You know, you may be the big man here, but to me and the rest of the world, you are completely insignificant.


Brooke: Stephanie, it's not what you think.

Ridge: Brooke and I were just talking.

Stephanie: Oh, just being a good friend and offering heart-felt condolences?

Ridge: Yeah, that's right.

Stephanie: I'm sure that's not the only thing she offered you.

Ridge: Oh, Mother, stop it.

Brooke: Oh, I really resent that.

Stephanie: I gave you the benefit of the doubt after the conversation we had earlier. You said you weren't gonna cause any problems. Now, what if one of the children had walked in and seen you two? Aren't they suffering enough with the loss of their mother? Do they have to see their father in the arms of his ex-wife?

Ridge: That's enough, Mother! There's absolutely nothing inappropriate going on here!

Stephanie: Right. I know you think I'm overreacting, but I'm not.

Bridget: Wait until your dad hears about that "a" you got today. He's gonna be so proud! Hey, guys. What's going on?


C.J.: What did you say to me?

Mark: I'm sorry -- am I not speaking slowly enough for you?

C.J.: Look, just back off, okay?

Mark: If you're referring to my relationship with Bridget, you can --

C.J.: See, that's just it! You don't have a relationship with Bridget. You're her mentor. Do you realize, if you keep hitting on her, she could sue you?

Mark: For what, huh? Treating her like an attractive, intelligent, sophisticated woman? I know she's probably more used to an "automatic drip." But, you know, who knows -- she may like it for a change.

C.J.: You know, you think you are so suave. You think you got all the answers. Let me tell you something. If you keep messing around with Bridget, you're not gonna like your prognosis, doctor.

Mark: You can't be serious.

C.J.: Uh, yeah, actually, I am. Dead serious.

Mark: Yeah, and you're real subtle, too. Making threats. Throwing punches. Who raised you? I mean, really. Was your growth stunted in junior high, or is your whole family this ignorant?


Clarke: They're gonna love each other. Come on, Sally. They're blood. They're family.

Sally: They're complete strangers, Clarke.

Clarke: Maybe for now, but not for long.

Sally: You're really determined to do this?

Clarke: You bet I am.

Sally: All right. But I am warning you, Clarke. You better make absolutely sure that C.J. Knows where he stands with you before you introduce him to Mark.

Clarke: Why?

Sally: Why? Because if mark has as much of you in him as C.J. Does, there are bound to be fireworks. And I'm sure the last thing in the world you want to see is those two boys fighting and competing with each other.

Ridge: Oh, my son. This is excellent. You did great!

Bridget: Is everything all right? 'Cause it kind of felt like I just walked in on something.

Brooke: Everything is fine.

Bridget: Are you sure? Because if you guys need to talk, I can just take Thomas down by the pool.

Brooke: No. No, there is nothing to talk about. Hi, Thomas. What is it that you have there?

Ridge: Thomas got an "a" on his vocabulary pop quiz today.

Brooke: Oh, wow. That's great.

Ridge: Yeah, the teacher said he didn't have to take it, but he wanted to do it anyway.

Bridget: See, told you your dad would be so proud.

Stephanie: That's a wonderful accomplishment.

Brooke: I think this means you deserve something really special. How about when your sisters get back, I take you out for some ice cream?

Ridge: There's an idea. I'd love a banana split. How about you?

Thomas: No.

Brooke: Well, how about a hot fudge sundae?

Thomas: No! I'm not going anywhere with her.

Ridge: Thomas? What's going on?

Thomas: You were mean to my mom! She didn't like you, and I don't either. I don't want your ice cream! I just want you to get out. Right now!

Brooke: Honey --

Thomas: Go away!

Ridge: Thomas, calm down here. Just calm down.

Stephanie: Well, I think the best thing you can do for this family is just keep your distance.

Ridge: Hey, talk to me. What's going on?

Thomas: I don't want her here. Please, Dad.

Ridge: Thomas, we don't kick people out of this house. If we want them to go, we ask them politely, okay?

Thomas: She shouldn't be here.

Bridget: Honey, you want to go upstairs?

Ridge: Brooke, I'm sorry about all this.

Brooke: No, it's all right. I was leaving anyway.

Thomas: Good.

Ridge: Look, I'll be up in a little while. You guys go up.

Bridget: Okay.


Clarke: Don't worry, sally. I know what I'm doing.

Sally: I'm not trying to talk you out of it, Clarke. They're your sons, and if you want to introduce them to each other, I will not stand in your way.

Clarke: But you're not gonna stand behind it.

Sally: I just want you to be prepared for the consequences. This may not turn out to be the greeting card reunion you expect it to be.

Clarke: Sally, this is gonna be great. You'll see. I want a relationship with both of my boys.

Sally: Well, I want that, too!

Clarke: You know what? I'm gonna make it clear to them. There's gonna be absolutely no competition. C.J. And mark have absolutely no reason to be jealous of each other.

C.J.: Leave my family out of this.

Mark: Hey, I didn't want to get into this in the first place, all right? I just came here to see Bridget.

C.J.: Man, you're pretty dense, aren't you? Bridget isn't interested in you. So why don't you just go away?

Mark: Yeah, I hate to burst your bubble, but the way Bridget tells it, you don't mean anything to her.

C.J.: Oh, see -- now, I know that's not true. I know that Bridget is a very private person, and she's certainly not gonna tell some jerk that she just met about her personal life. You think you know her? You don't know anything about her. You have no idea what she has been through. See, she may be innocent, but she certainly isn't naive, and she's not gonna fall for this "Dr. Dream date" routine. She knows all about guys like you. She just got divorced from one loser slime ball.

Mark: Yeah, I know. That guy really did a number on her.

C.J.: She told you about that?

Mark: She told me a lot of things.


Stephanie: This is exactly what I'm talking about.

Brooke: I just offered to take the kids out for some ice cream.

Stephanie: Oh, you didn't see how upset and angry Thomas was?

Ridge: Look, Thomas has a very short fuse right now. He's just acting out his anger. That's part of his grieving process.

Stephanie: He's angry with Brooke.

Ridge: No, he just overheard jack at the funeral. He was just repeating what he said.

Stephanie: Oh, then all the more reason why you shouldn't be here.

Ridge: Mother, Jack was out of line.

Stephanie: He doesn't need -- and the girls don't need to be vying for your attention with your ex-wife.

Brooke: I would never do that.

Stephanie: Look, I believe you don't want to cause any upset in this family. I understand that. But the fact is, you are. So if you really care for the children, I'm asking you to stay away before you do any real damage.

Ridge: She hasn't done any damage. Look, he was just -- threw a tantrum. I can deal with that.

Stephanie: Yes, of course you can. But you shouldn't have to. And we shouldn't even be having this conversation. And you shouldn't be here.

Brooke: You know, that's it. I know you care about your son. So do I. But I'm not gonna let you turn me into the bad guy, Stephanie. And you keep talking about what Thomas needs. What about what he doesn't need? He certainly doesn't need to hear us screaming and yelling down here. So I am going to leave.

Ridge: Brooke, Brooke. I'm sorry.

Brooke: Oh, no. It's all right. Look, I don't think you should have to apologize, and I don't want Thomas to apologize either. You just hang in there, okay? I'll see you soon.

Ridge: Yeah. Take care.


Bridget: Thomas, don't throw your toys. What are you looking for?

Thomas: My video game.

Bridget: Well, you can play with that in a minute. Why don't you have a seat. Sit down, honey. Hey, what's going on. I know something's bothering you. What is it?

Thomas: I don't like her.

Bridget: You've made that pretty obvious.

Thomas: She doesn't even belong here.

Bridget: Well, she says she's gonna leave soon.

Thomas: Good. Then I can go back down with dad.

Bridget: If you can be polite, I'll take you down there now.

Thomas: No. Not until she leaves. She's always hanging around here, trying to get me to do stuff.

Bridget: You think she spends too much time here?

Thomas: I just don't want to hang with her.

Bridget: You want to be alone with your dad, huh?

Thomas: I want to play my game.

Bridget: Honey, in a second. First, I want you to listen to me.

Thomas: I'm not gonna apologize.

Bridget: I'm not asking you to. But I want you to hear me out, okay? This is important. Thomas, your mom was the most incredible, beautiful person. And nobody can ever take her place, not in your life and not in your dad's life. Nobody would even try. So, if that's what you think my mom is trying to do, she's not.

Thomas: Yeah, right.

Bridget: I wouldn't lie to you, Thomas. You know that. My mom and your dad are friends. They've been friends forever -- for as long as I can remember. And I promise you, she is not gonna steal him away from you. She just wants to help out. Just like me and your grandma Stephanie. You and your sisters are the most important thing in your dad's life, and nothing and nobody can ever change that. Thomas, he loves you. Your dad wants to spend as much time with you as he can, and my mom understands that. She doesn't want to get in the way of that. And when she asks you to do stuff, it's because she cares about you. Because she wants to make you feel better, and cheer you up.

Thomas: It's not working.

Bridget: Well, maybe it's not working. But it's the thought that counts, isn't it? And my mom is thinking about you. She only wants what's best for you.

Thomas: Can I play my game now?

Bridget: Sure.

Thomas: Thanks.


Ridge: I'm just saying, that wasn't really necessary.

Stephanie: Apparently, Brooke has to be reminded of what is appropriate behavior in a situation like this.

Ridge: I thought you two were friends.

Stephanie: I thought I could take her at her word. I was wrong.

Ridge: Mother, nothing happened. Nothing.

Bridget: Excuse me.

Ridge: Hey, Bridget. How's Thomas?

Bridget: Oh, he's calmed down. He's playing a video game.

Ridge: I should go up and talk to him.

Bridget: I'd like to talk to you first.

Ridge: Oh. Did his outburst didn't make you uncomfortable?

Bridget: Actually, it did.

Ridge: He's just incredibly angry about losing his mother, and he's gotta direct it at someone.

Bridget: He heard what Jack said to my mom at the funeral.

Ridge: Yeah, well, Jack was wrong. Brooke and Taylor made peace with each other.

Bridget: Yes, but if Thomas believes they were enemies, she could become an issue.

Stephanie: She's already an issue.

Bridget: I don't want to become one too.

Stephanie: This has nothing to do with you.

Bridget: Well, it doesn't really have anything do with my mother, either. Look, Ridge. Thomas needs your full attention right now. And if he feels his relationship with you is being threatened by anyone, it's just gonna make him angrier. And I gotta tell you, seeing his reaction today, I don't even know if I should be spending so much time here.

Ridge: What are you talking about? You're great with the kids.

Bridget: Don't get me wrong. I love spending time with them. But if it's not what they need --

Stephanie: But it is.

Ridge: She's right. I mean, I was just telling your mother how terrific you are with them. Thomas and the girls love you.

Stephanie: They trust you, Bridget . That's what's important.

Ridge: Look, if this is not something you really want to do, if you don't really have time --

Bridget: No, no, no -- it's not that.

Ridge: You know, I'm not asking you to be here all the time. I really appreciate the time you've given us so far, you know. Even if I haven't thanked you --

Bridget: You have. And I don't want you to feel like I'm bailing on you here. I'm not. I just -- I want to be sure this is what the kids need.

Stephanie: It's exactly what they need.

Ridge: I agree. Look, I'm not trying to pressure you. If you feel you have to leave, that's okay. But it would sure be wonderful having you here.

Bridget: Okay, I'll stay. But if this becomes a problem, you let me know. Because I don't want to be in the way.

Ridge: That's not gonna happen. Look, we need you. We really need you. And I really appreciate you being here.

Bridget: Okay.


C.J.: So, what else did she tell you?

Mark: She told me a lot of things. You know, believe it or not, C.J., We have more interesting things to discuss than her scum of an ex-husband.

C.J.: Ooh, like what? How many awards you've won? How many lives you've saved?

Mark: Things like Bridget's ambition. Her plans for the future.

C.J.: And you think those plans include you?

Mark: Well, let's see. Bridget's preparing for a career in medicine. I'm a doctor. We're gonna be spending a lot of time together.

C.J.: Man, you are a real piece of work, you know that? You think you've got all the angles, don't you? Let me tell you something. I know Bridget, and she may be impressed with your resume, but that's about all you've got going for you.

Mark: Oh, yeah. And what do you have going for you, C.J., Huh? Tell me, because, yeah, I would love to know. Why would a girl at the top of her class want anything to do with a pathetic, smart-mouthed dropout like you? So you gave her a job and a place to live? What, do you think that makes you prince charming? You know, face it, man. Bridget is way out of your league. Do me a favor and tell her I stopped by.

[ Crowd gasps ]

C.J.: Oh, my god!

Mark: Dad? Dad, are you okay?

C.J.: What did you say?
