Brooke: Yes? Good. Send her in. Oh, Megan, you can go home now. Thanks. Hello, Dr. Quick.

Tricia: Hi.

Brooke: Thanks for stopping by.

Tricia: I have to admit, I was surprised to get your assistant's call.

Brooke: Well, it was very gracious of you to take it. I'm not sure I would have if I'd been tossed out of somebody's office.

Tricia: Well, iI've learned not to take these things personally.

Brooke: Still, I never should have treated you like that. You're only trying to be supportive.

Tricia: I'm glad you realize that.

Brooke: I do. Uh, I asked you here for another reason, as well. You said if I ever needed to talk --

Tricia: Well, the offer still stands.

Brooke: I think I'll take you up on it then.

Tricia: What's on your mind?

Brooke: Ridge -- and me.


Ridge: All right, enough for tonight. Good night, my son.

Thomas: Dad? Why are you so nice to Brooke?

Ridge: I'm glad you brought that up. I've been meaning to talk to you about her.

Thomas: Oh, great. I'm in trouble, right?

Ridge: No, no, no, no. Would I have preferred you didn't come down so hard on her earlier? Yeah. But you were just expressing your feelings, and I think that's really important to do right now.

Thomas: It's just -- she was bugging me.

Ridge: Any particular reason? You said that she was mean to mom. What made you think that?

Thomas: I don't know.

Ridge: Did you hear something at the funeral? Were you there when grandpa Jack yelled at Brooke?

Thomas: He didn't just yell at her. He kicked her out. I just wish she was gone for good.


Tony: C.J. And Bridget's mentor are brothers?

Sally: Half-brothers, please! I refuse to take any responsibility for that wolf in doctor's clothing.

Clarke: You see, Mark's mother, Margo, and I had a relationship long before I was married Sally. And he is not a wolf!

Sally: Really? But he is very busy making advances to Bridget right now, isn't he?

Tony: Yeah, but I thought that C.J. and Bridget were --

Sally: Romantically involved. Yes. Or rather they were until young Dr. Lothario showed up on the scene.

Clarke: I told you that Mark and C.J., when they found out they were brothers, they called a truce as far as Bridget was concerned. There is no way they are going to let a woman come between them.


[ Knock at the door ]

Bridget: Oh, god. C.J.?

C.J.: Ah-ha! So you are here. I thought I heard you come in.

Bridget: Yeah. I'm here. We made plans for after closing, didn't we? Right?

C.J.: Yeah, but you got back early, so why wait?

Bridget: Well, because I have plans, C.J. I have plans, okay?

C.J.: What do you mean? Plans before our plans? Who are you meeting?

Mark: Hey, Bridget. So, you ready to have some fun?

[ C.J. Clears his throat ]


Brooke: Have you ever tried to do something good for somebody, but everybody keeps questioning your motives?

Tricia: Is that what you feel is happening with you and Ridge?

Brooke: I just want to help Ridge get through this pain, and get him to the point where he can at least function. But his mother and his boss, and Taylor's father -- even her son, Thomas. They're all convinced that I see Ridge's situation as some kind of opportunity.

Tricia: Thomas?

Brooke: Yes, he was very upset that I stopped by to see Ridge earlier today.

Tricia: You were with Ridge?

Brooke: I was there as a friend. Somebody that he could share his feelings with.

Tricia: And that upset Thomas?

Brooke: He's already upset, understandably. But it doesn't help that everybody acts like I'm some kind of monster. You know, poor Thomas. He had to see Jack go off on me at the funeral, and now Stephanie's on my case. And all I want is to help Ridge, just like everybody else. And somebody's really gotta tell Stephanie to back off.

Tricia: And you think that should be me.

Brooke: And would you? I mean, that would really be helpful. For Ridge, for the kids, for the whole family.

Tricia: I see. Do you honestly believe there's no reason for concern?

Brooke: I'm Ridge's friend. I'm his closest friend now since Taylor's death. And yes, I admit -- I tried to pursue him when it was really inappropriate, but things have changed. I'm different now. I have different priorities. I have a different focus. And even Stephanie admitted it. But now --

Tricia: Now her son is involved. And when Ridge is thrown into the equation, all the progress that you've made recently becomes one big question mark, right?

Brooke: But why? Why does it have to be that way? Because Ridge and I share a history?

Tricia: A very powerful history, from what I understand.

Brooke: Well, it doesn't mean that I can't keep a perspective on it.

Tricia: Well, you may think you can.

Brooke: But you don't.

Tricia: Give me a good reason to believe otherwise.


Tony: Blood may be thicker than water, but -- man, not when it comes to women.

Sally: Exactly right. And if young Mark wants to keep his face looking as handsome as you say it is, Clarke, he would be very well advised to retire from the field gracefully, and not come between C.J. And Bridget.

Clarke: You think this is gonna turn into another fight?

Sally: Well, what do you think? You and I both raised our son C.J. To stand up and fight for what he wants. And knowing how much he cares for Bridget, naturally, I hope he succeeds. No matter what he has to do.


Mark: Here you go, Bridget. I hope you like gardenias.

Bridget: Oh. Mark, that's so sweet. Thank you.

C.J.: I thought we had an agreement.

Bridget: An agreement?

C.J.: Uh, yeah. "Doogie Howsier" over here promised that he'd stay away from you.

Bridget: You did?

Mark: Yeah, well, I wasn't the only one, bub.

Bridget: Wait, wait. Hold on. Wait, the both of you made a pact not to go out with me?

C.J.: Yeah, and we can see how much he honored that, can't we?

Bridget: Excuse me, but Mark isn't the only one I'm seeing tonight.

Mark: Oh, really?

C.J.: No, no. We are getting together after work to talk. That doesn't count.

Mark: Hell, yeah, it does.

C.J.: Oh, really? Well, I'm not the one up here bringing her flowers, now am I, "Rico suave?"

Bridget: Hey, hey, boys, boys. This is ridiculous. Come on, now.

Mark: Look, come on, Bridge, look. I don't want to be late for our reservation. And besides, there's something important I want to share with you.

C.J.: No, no, no. You won't be sharing anything with her tonight.

Bridget: C.J., Relax. What harm could one dinner do?

C.J.: With my brother the perv? Plenty.

Bridget: What did you just call him?

C.J.: A pervert.

Bridget: No, no, no, you didn't. You said "my brother." Oh my god, you and Mark are brothers?

Mark: God job, Folgers. Thanks for ruining my surprise.

Bridget: Whoa. This is -- wow. You're really brothers?

C.J.: That's what my dad says.

Mark: I'm sorry -- our dad.

Bridget: But your father is Clarke Garrison, why is your last name Maclaine?

Mark: It's my mother's family name. She refused to let me go by Garrison.

Bridget: And she kept you from you father?

Mark: She had full custody, and she refused to let my dad anywhere near us.

Bridget: So you went all these years without a father? God, Mark, I'm so sorry.

C.J.: Well, not that he's any worse off for it, Mr. Big-time doctor.

Bridget: So, when you took the job at university, did you know that Clarke lived in L.A.?

Mark: I was hoping to find him.

Bridget: But you had no idea C.J. was related to you?

Mark: No, not until today.

C.J.: Oh, and let me tell you, Bridget. It has been the happiest day of my life.

Mark: And it's nice to meet you, too.

C.J.: You know, I'm getting real tired of your attitude.

Mark: I'm sorry -- my attitude?

C.J.: I'm not the one using my professional position to put the moves on an innocent young girl.

Bridget: Innocent young girl?

Mark: Look, I already told you that I was withdrawing from the mentor program.

Bridget: What? Thanks for telling me.

Mark: I planned on telling you tonight.

C.J.: Oh yeah, I bet. I can just hear you. "Bridget, I can't stay on as your mentor because I like you too much. That's just the type of honorable guy that I am."

Mark: Yeah, well, it's true.

C.J.: Oh, if you were so honorable, you wouldn't have moved in on her knowing she was involved with somebody else.

Mark: You were just a way to pass the time until someone with more style came along.

C.J.: Oh, I'm sorry. She doesn't like arrogant jerks.

Mark: Oh, I'm sorry. She doesn't like moody and self-pitying.

Bridget: Excuse me. Hello. Hi. God, now that you guys have made complete fools out of yourself, would you like to hear what "she" thinks?


Ridge: You know, when Grandpa Jack said all those things to Brooke, he was just releasing his anger over what happened to your mom. Kind of like when Ms. Elliott gave you a "c" on your book report, and you took it out on your baseball.

Thomas: I don't have to like Brooke, do I?

Ridge: I can't force you to like anybody, son. But I would ask you to maybe cut her a little slack, because she's just trying to help us.

Thomas: Whatever.

Ridge: Let's get some sleep, okay?

Thomas: Are you still staying awake most of the night?

Ridge: Oh, I manage to catch a few hours here and there. Don't worry. Your old dad is hanging in there.

Thomas: I miss her.

Ridge: Yeah. So do I. So do I.


Brooke: Why is everybody so eager and willing to believe the worst of me?

Tricia: Well, that might be something to think about.

Brooke: No one can understand what Ridge and I have meant to each other.

Tricia: I'd like to try.

Brooke: I wouldn't really know where to start. Ridge and I had one of those unforgettable romances.

Unforgettable in every way and forever more and forever more that's how you'll stay

that's why darling it's incredible that someone so unforgettable

thinks that I am unforgettable too

Brooke: It was really special.

Tricia: Special? Brooke, what you and Ridge had -- it's something most people only dream about.

Brooke: And yet, the feelings were so intense that the whole thing was really out of proportion. The highs were so high, and the lows were devastating.

Tricia: It must've been so difficult.

Brooke: Well, it's different now. I think that we're a little more balanced, and when we're together, we have kind of a peaceful feeling.

Tricia: Like a friendship.

Brooke: More like an understanding. A very deep understanding. He knows that I care about him, and I know that he cares about me. And that's as far as it's going to go.

Tricia: Brooke, you say that now --

Brooke: No, I have a very strong will. I am determined to stay on the path that I have made for myself. Now, I really believe that I'm capable of helping Ridge, and keeping it strictly a friendship.

Tricia: Even if he's not?


Bridget: Okay, let's get something straight right off the top. Yes, it's true. C.J. Can be a little moody at times. But it's only because he feels things so deeply. He has the biggest, most considerate heart, and I consider myself lucky to have him in my life.

C.J.: Bye, now.

Bridget: On the other hand -- Mark is courageous, and daring, and so full of life, it's just a rush being around him. He makes me want to be a better person, and that is something Ii want to hold on to.

Mark: Sorry, man.

Bridget: Hey, I'm doing the talking here, remember? And if I had to choose between both of you right now, I wouldn't pick either.

C.J.: Wait a minute. Bridget, you just said two seconds ago that --

Bridget: I just got out of a really bad marriage, and frankly, I could use a little romance. And judging by the way you two are acting, you probably have no idea what that is. But I'm gonna give you a chance.

C.J.: Wait, so you want us to compete for you?

Bridget: I want you to sweep me off my feet.

C.J.: All right. Fine. I can do that.

Mark: If we must, I'm in.

Bridget: Okay, good. And may the best brother win.

Mark: All right. So, let's do dinner. I have a table waiting at the new Caribbean place on Canon.

Bridget: That's so perfect. I hope you and C.J. Have fun.

C.J.: What?

Mark: C.J.?

Bridget: Oh, yes. You guys have some major issues to work out, and I figure, what better night than tonight, huh?

C.J.: Bridget, no. This is --

Bridget: Oh, yeah. You guys have fun at dinner. Try to make some progress, huh?

C.J.: Wait, wait. Where are you gonna be?

Bridget: I'm gonna be at Ridge's. At least his children have a reason to act like kids.

C.J.: No!

Bridget: Have fun, you guys.

C.J.: Okay, but Bridget --

Bridget: Brothers.


Tricia: Ridge is in a very vulnerable position right now. All those feelings that he had for Taylor. His love for her, his need for closeness and companionship. He could easily transfer those feelings onto you.

Brooke: No, no, no. You don't get it. Ridge and I have been part of each other's lives forever. We know who we are.

Tricia: Can you be that sure?

Brooke: Yes! And I know he needs somebody right now.

Tricia: I agree. But I also have to agree with the others and Stephanie. It shouldn't be you, Brooke.

Brooke: You're wrong. You all are. I'm not gonna turn my back on Ridge. Not when he needs a friend the most.

Tricia: Sorry, it's just a professional opinion.

Brooke: Right. Well, thank you, doctor.

Tricia: Brooke, do yourself a favor, and do Ridge a favor. Stay away from him. Otherwise, you're playing with fire.

Brooke: Oh, god.

[ Phone rings ]

Ridge: Hello.

Brooke: Hi, it's me.

Ridge: Logan.

Brooke: Are the kids asleep?

Ridge: Yeah, finally.

Brooke: Are you going to bed?

Ridge: Not a chance.

Brooke: Well, I'd like to see you.

Ridge: All right.

Brooke: Okay, I'll be right over.
