Brooke: I just finished my breakfast meeting with Lauren. Fenmore wants to carry our Portofino collection. I'm sure Ridge is gonna be thrilled for you. You did? How did he sound? Well, I think it's only natural for him to be a little down after the competition. Try not to worry, Eric. I know. Bye. David?

Driver: Yes, Ms. Logan?

Brooke: Did Megan schedule you for any other appointments today?

Driver: You're it.

Brooke: Good. I was hoping you would say that. Turn around at the next light, will you please?

Driver: Where are we going?

Brooke: To cheer up an old friend.

Driver: Right away, Ms. Logan.

[Bridget remembering]

Massimo: No, no.  You are wrong. You are so wrong. He needs you now more than ever. And in your own way, you need him, too. And I have a feeling that you're beginning to realize that and that's what frightens you.

Bridget: What frightens -- ? What are you talking about?

Massimo: Yes, because that is the reason you left the house. You're afraid.

Bridget: What? No. No --

Massimo: Of your growing feelings for Ridge.

Bridget: No.

[Knock at door]

Bridget: Come on in, C.J. I'm just gonna finish unpacking.

Massimo: I'm sorry to hear that. I was hoping you'd decided to go back to Ridge.

Bridget: I'm not gonna do this again.

Massimo: Do what?

Bridget: I would like you to leave.

Massimo: Bridget --

Bridget: I mean it, Massimo. Go.

Massimo: Does the subject of Ridge scare you that much?

Bridget: Why are you here?

Massimo: Certainly not to antagonize you.

Bridget: Really? Really? Well, maybe a phone call letting me know you were coming would have helped.

Massimo: Would you have agreed to see me? Ah -- look, I'm sorry I've descended on you this way, okay? But I gotta tell you the truth. My curiosity got the better of me.

Bridget: Your curiosity?

Massimo: I was wondering if you'd thought about our conversation yesterday. Obviously, you have.

Bridget: Why would you say that?

Massimo: Those little dark circles under your eyes. I'm sure that's not jet-lag. You didn't sleep last night, did you?

Bridget: Not much.

Massimo: Well, if it helps any, I didn't either.

Bridget: Worried I'd tell you to go to hell?

[Massimo laughs]

Massimo: You know something? That's exactly the way I pictured you saying it. Look, Bridget, you're a strong woman. Once you set your mind to something, you don't give it up easily. But I can be relentless, as well.

Bridget: No kidding.

Massimo: So why don't you just admit your feelings for Ridge and it will save us a lot of time?

Bridget: I already admitted my feelings for Ridge. You know I have feelings for him as a brother.

Massimo: Are you telling me now that you know the truth, that you don't see Ridge in a -- how can I put this? In a different light?

Bridget: Would you just stop it, please?

Massimo: Look, Bridget, all I'm asking you is to go back to Ridge's house. Look at you. You're lovely. You're kind. You're gracious. You're exactly the kind of woman that Ridge should have around him.

Bridget: He already has a woman around him.

Massimo: He has a spoiled brat.

Bridget: You want to think that, that's fine. That's fine. Because I'm not gonna waste one more second trying to defend my mother. Frankly, I don't give a damn what you think. And neither does Ridge.

Ridge: Well, let me tell you something. It doesn't matter. Because Ridge is gonna find out about Brooke. He always does. And then you know what's gonna happen? He is gonna turn to you.

Ridge: Yeah. He's gonna turn to his kid sister, right?

Massimo: Look, come on. Ridge doesn't see you that way.

Bridget: Of course, he sees me that way. I'm the baby-sitter, for god's sake.

Massimo: "Baby-sitter"? You are the caretaker of his children. He trusts you with their upbringing. Their lives. Do you think he would do that if he didn't feel you were a capable, mature woman?

Bridget: You know what? This capable, mature woman has a very full life of her own, including two terrific guys to keep her busy. Thank you.

Massimo: Uh-huh. And that's about what they'll do. They'll keep you busy. But you'll never find out what's really important in life.

[Massimo sighs] Ridge and the kids -- they need you. They depend on you. They treasure you. They're only existing without you.

Bridget: Please, please, just -- please.

Massimo: Do you think I'm making this up?

Bridget: I think you're blowing this way out of proportion.

Massimo: Do you?

Bridget: Where are you going?

Massimo: I'm going to prove you wrong.

[Bridget groans]

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

Ridge: Hey, guys. Everybody ready for school? Don't all cheer at once, okay?

Thomas: Do I have to go to school?

Ridge: You know the answer to that.

Thomas: My stomach hurts.

Ridge: It does?

Phoebe: So does mine.

Steffy: Mine, too.

Ridge: Well, I wonder how that happened.

Catherine: Well, it sure wasn't from eating too much.

Ridge: Okay, guys, let's talk about the real reason you all want to play hooky from school.

Thomas: Because school's boring.

Phoebe: And stupid.

Ridge: All very valid reasons.

Steffy: And Aunt Bridget won't be here to help us with our homework.

Ridge: Ah, okay. Now, we're gettin' to the heart of it.

Thomas: Did you really try and ask her to stay?

Ridge: Yeah, I did. I know a good thing when I see it.

Steffy: Can you ask her again?

Ridge: It means that much to you, huh?

Thomas: Things are just -- happier when Aunt Bridget's around.

Steffy: It's like having stinky to cuddle. Only better.

[Doorbell rings]

Thomas: Maybe it's her.

Phoebe: Yeah.

Steffy: Aunt Bridget.

Brooke: Surprise.

Thomas: Oh. Hi, Brooke.

Steffy: Yeah, hi.

Phoebe: Hello.

Ridge: They thought you might be Bridget.

Brooke: I thought you might be missing her this morning.

Ridge: Well, please tell me that you have some way to cheer us up here, will ya?

Brooke: Actually, that's exactly why I stopped by.

Ridge: So, after the pancakes fell flat, these three announce they don't want to go to school.

Brooke: Well, you can't exactly blame them. Can you?

Phoebe: See?

Ridge: Hey, you're supposed to be helping, remember?

Brooke: You know, I was never really crazy about school. Sitting there in a cramped classroom for hours and hours when I could be playing outside in the fresh air.

Steffy: Exactly.

Brooke: But then, if I never went to school, I never would've learned how to run a major company like Forrester Creations. And I wouldn't be driving around in my very own limousine.

Steffy: A limousine?

Brooke: The same one the supermodels use. And there's three different video game systems in there.

Thomas: Three?

Brooke: Yeah. It's too bad you guys are staying home. I would have offered to give you a ride to school.

Steffy: Seriously?

Brooke: Very seriously. But, now I'll just have to tell the driver that it's just gonna be him and me.

Phoebe: Well, first day back is always fun. Right?

Steffy: And we could show everyone our souvenirs from Italy.

Brooke: So does that mean you're gonna come with me? I stocked the car with gooey, yummy cinnamon buns.

Steffy: Can you say "oh, yeah"?

Phoebe: Oh, yeah.

Ridge: Oh, please. What happened to your stomachaches?

Steffy and phoebe: What stomachaches?

Ridge: What about you? Are you in on this, too?

Thomas: I guess.

[Ridge laughs]

Ridge: All right. What are you waiting for? Go get your coats. Nice work, Logan.

Brooke: I try.

Ridge: Yes, you do.

Brooke: Oh, what's this?

Ridge: Just a little appreciation, that's all.

Brooke: My pleasure.

Phoebe: Can we go now?

Ridge: Excuse me? Now she can't wait to leave.

Brooke: All right. Let's go. We're outta here.

Ridge: All right, you guys. Have fun in the limo and go easy on the cinnamon buns, will ya please?

Brooke: Okay.

Thomas: Okay.

Kids: Mojo!

Massimo: Hello, children. How are ya? How you doin'? All right?

Steffy: Brooke's taking us to school in her limousine.

Massimo: She is, is she? Well, you have a good time.

Brooke: All right. Well, let's get out of here so you're not late for school, okay?

Thomas: Bye, dad.

Brooke: Bye.

Ridge: I know what you're gonna say, and I don't want to hear it.

Massimo: Well, you damn well better hear it. And soon. Otherwise, this family is not gonna make it.

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

[Knock on door]

Bridget: Who is it?

C.J.: Room service.

[Bridget laughs]

Bridget: C.J., Hold on.

C.J.: Good mornin', my lady. Sorry I'm a little late. I had to stop at the bakery and pick up a couple extra croissants.

Bridget: Oh, I can't believe you went to so much trouble. When you said, "breakfast," I just figured --

C.J.: What? Insomnia special? A stale bagel and some coffee? Something like that?

Bridget: Yeah.

C.J.: Oh, no, no, no. Not this morning.

Bridget: What's so special about this morning?

C.J.: You're here.

Bridget: Yeah, it feels kind of weird, doesn't it? In a way, it's like I've been gone forever.

C.J.: Something wrong?

Bridget: No. I just missed you.

C.J.: Well, in that case -- I missed you, too. A lot. Bridget, what's going on with you?

[Bridget sighs]

Bridget: Nothing. Nothing. I'm just so tired, you know? I think -- I think I'm still jet-lagged.

C.J.: Okay. That's all right. For a minute there, I thought you were gonna tell me you had some secret lover over in Italy.

Bridget: Why would you say that?

C.J.: I'm kidding. Relax. Hey, I saw Massimo's Bentley here this morning. He came to see you again? Hello? Bridget?

Bridget: Yeah. Yeah, he did.

C.J.: Well, I mean, what's goin' on? What does he want from you?

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

Massimo: You know, this goes from bad to worse.

Ridge: Oh, come on. Brooke's just giving the kids a limo ride.

Massimo: Uh-huh. What's next? Dinner with their favorite movie star? Maybe a little spin around the world in a space shuttle?

Ridge: She's not trying to impress them.

Massimo: Of course, she is. It's the only way she knows how to relate to them. She has no heart, no sensitivity.

Ridge: Well, she was sensitive enough to know we were at loose ends this morning without Bridget.

Massimo: That was a mistake, letting her go. I mean, you know how difficult it is to get a good baby-sitter these days?

Ridge: "Baby-sitter"? Is that all you think she is? I got news for ya. Bridget means a hell of a lot more to us than that.

Massimo: Oh?

Ridge: Something about her -- it's hard to explain, really. Kind of like staring at an unfinished jigsaw puzzle. You don't know where any of the pieces go. When Bridget's around, everything just kind of falls into place. Each piece fits exactly where it's supposed to. Hmm -- kind of takes your breath away when you think about it.

Massimo: Bridget does that to you? Huh? Takes your breath away?

Ridge: Yeah, when she makes my kids laugh, wipes away their tears -- yeah, she pretty much slays me. That little devil. I should've known she's find a way to get under my skin.

Massimo: Have you told her this, Ridge?

Ridge: No, she'd just think I was out of my mind.

Massimo: Or be so moved that she'd come running back. Uh, why don't you call her, Ridge? Tell her how you feel. What harm could it do?

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

C.J.: Wait a second -- you're not gonna tell me Massimo Marone has a thing for you, are you?

Bridget: Oh, no. Oh, god, no, no. Um, Massimo is just trying to convince me to stay on with Ridge and the kids.

C.J.: Why? I don't understand. Why is it his business what you do?

Bridget: Well, it doesn't really matter anyway because I have no intention of going back there.

C.J.: Ah, three kids. A little too much for you to handle, huh?

Bridget: No. No, no, no. I love them so much. You know, it's the best feeling in the world when they look at you and you know they feel safe with you. It's so amazing.

C.J.: Well, then, it's Ridge you're trying to get away from.

[Bridget scoffs]

Bridget: That's ridiculous.

[Phone rings] hello?

Ridge: You know, you've got a lot of nerve making us all so crazy about you that we can't live without you now.

Bridget: Ridge.

Ridge: Ah, well, it's good to know you still recognize my voice.

Bridget: Well, I've only been gone one night.

Ridge: One night for you. An eternity for us. Seriously, princess, this is about a lot more than you just being a baby-sitter.

Bridget: It is?

Ridge: Yeah, you're our soul. Our spirit. I'd do anything to get ya back here. I'll even stop teasing ya. How 'bout that? That's an old one anyway. You're not a kid anymore. You're a hell of a woman, Bridget. Sweet, gentle, feisty, bullheaded -- damn, if you weren't my sister I'd probably ask you to marry me. Anyway, you just think about what I said. Okay? Will you do that?

Bridget: Yeah.

Ridge: All right. Well, at least that's a good start. I'll talk to you soon.

Bridget: Okay. Bye.

C.J.: What's goin' on? Is he, um, puttin' more pressure on you to come home?

Bridget: Um, no. You know what? I so appreciate what you did here, but I'm really, really tired. Would it be okay if we cut this short?

C.J.: Yeah. Yeah, um, I totally understand. You can just keep this stuff here and eat it if you get hungry later, okay?

Bridget: Thank you. C.J., I mean it. Thank you. For being such a good guy.

C.J.: Ah, ain't no thing. You, uh -- you sleep tight, okay?

Bridget: Okay. Thanks.

[Phone rings] Hello?

Massimo: Did you hear what he said?

Bridget: Massimo, I told you to stay out of this.

Massimo: He said he'd marry you if you weren't his sister. What more do you need?

Bridget: I need for you to leave me alone. Leave me alone!

[Bridget groans]
