Bridget: Mom -- now you've taken him up to Big Bear, away from his kids. Please don't throw yourself at him.

Brooke: Ridge -- I --Ithink we need to --

Ridge: Don't say anything.

Brooke: We should really think about this.

Ridge: I don't want to think. I just want to be here in this moment.

Brooke: No. Ridge, we can't do this.

Ridge: Logan, look, we're adults. Nobody's gonna walk in on us. Nobody's gonna leak this to the tabloids.

Brooke: Is that all you're worried about?

Ridge: I'm not worried about anything. Why are you worried?

Brooke: Maybe because you're not. Look, I want to make love to you more than anything in this world. But I think it's just too soon.

Ridge: Oh, come on, not this again.

Brooke: Ridge, when it happens, I want it to be something special. And it will be. I just think that you're still trying to escape.

Ridge: Why? Because of what I said, where I don't want to think about anything?

Brooke: No. No, it has nothing to do with that. It's just not the right time.

Ridge: We're stuck here in a cabin for the whole night. There's nothing around us but snow and solitude, and you're saying it's not the right time?

Brooke: I know, I know. I know it sounds crazy. I'm sorry. I just -- I just don't think we're ready.

Ridge: Well, why don't you let me be the judge of that then?

Brooke: Because, Ridge, it's not just you. I'm not ready either.

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

Bridget: Okay. So, what are we reading tonight? More sorcerers?

Phoebe: No, daddy finished that one already.

Bridget: Oh, okay. So what's this one about?

Steffy: That princess.

Bridget: A princess? What happened, Thomas? Did you get outvoted?

Thomas: No, it's cool. It's got pirates in it, too.

Bridget: Oh, pirates? Well, I hope they're not scary pirates. Arr! Arr! [Laughter] [doorbell rings ] oh, I'll get that. You guys stay here, okay?

Massimo: Bridget!

Bridget: Hi, Massimo.

Massimo: Wow, what a nice surprise. I hadn't expected to find you here.

Bridget: I'm just doing Tidge a favor.

Massimo: Well, I think you'll see one day that you've done yourself one, too. May I come in?

Bridget: You know what? I'm just about to read the kids a story.

Kids: Mojo! Mojo!

Massimo: Oh, it's so good to see you. Look at you in all your jammies. So what are you doing?

Thomas: We're reading about pirates.

Massimo: Ah, so my timing is just about perfect. Huh? You loved all those big ships and everything, right? With all the sails, huh?

Thomas: Yeah.

Phoebe: Yeah. It was a big ship, and --

Thomas: It's a real good book. It's got lots of pictures of boats in it.

Massimo: Oh, and I know how you like the boats. They're wonderful, aren't they?

Steffy: And a beautiful princess.

Thomas: And pirates.

Massimo: Oh, ho, ho, ho! Pirates and princesses. That sounds like a terrific story.

Phoebe: Could you read it with us?

Massimo: Well, if I'm not interfering.

Bridget: You're not. Guys, why don't you sit down, I'll be in in a sec, okay? We both will.

Massimo: Well, it's obvious the kids are glad to have you back.

Bridget: Well, I'm not staying. I told you, I'm just doing Ridge a favor until he gets back.

Massimo: Is he still at work?

Thomas: No. They're stuck in the cabin.

Massimo: Who's stuck in the cabin?

Thomas: Dad and Brooke.

Massimo: Ah -- oh, oh, Thomas. I almost forgot. I came by to give you these.

Thomas: More coins?

Massimo: That's right. I found them in a shop in Portofino. There's one for each of you. Here's one for you. Here's one for you. And there's one for you. Huh?

Steffy: Wow. They're so pretty.

Phoebe: I know.

Massimo: Yes.

Thomas: Let's go add them to our collection.

Girls: Yeah!

Bridget: Thomas, you can do that later.

Massimo: No, no, no, no. Go ahead, Thomas. It's fine. I'm going to have to leave soon, and then Bridget can come upstairs and finish reading to you.

Thomas: Cool. Thanks, Mojo.

Steffy: Thank you.

Phoebe: Thank you.

Massimo: Okay, you're welcome.

Thomas: Thanks.

Massimo: Is this true? Ridge is spending the night with Brooke?

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

Brooke: Ridge, look, I'm not being a prude.

Ridge: Well, not in that outfit you're not.

Brooke: I know it seems like I'm sending you mixed signals.

Ridge: No, no. Absolutely not. You're being perfectly clear here.

Brooke: I just want to be honest.

Ridge: You're not ready.

Brooke: We have other responsibilities with our families and our children.

Ridge: And you don't think we're being responsible?

Brooke: I just don't want us to rush into something without thinking. It's never been about sex with us. I mean, it goes way beyond that. And, right now, things are just a little more complicated.

Ridge: They don't have to be.

Brooke: Well, complicated doesn't mean wrong or bad. It just means that we can't let our emotions get away from us.

Ridge: Is this is the new Logan I've been hearing so much about?

Brooke: I promised myself and my children that I would never let my heart run my life again.

Ridge: Mm, good for you. Good for you. I think I liked the old Logan better.

Brooke: Why you little -- [laughter] oops.

Ridge: Okay. Good night, Logan. Good night.

Brooke: You're leaving?

Ridge: Well, I really -- I really wouldn't want to compromise your principles at this point. I would not want to put them in jeopardy.

Brooke: Well, wait a minute. I just said that we couldn't make love. I didn't say that you had to go. And there are other things that we could do.

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

Massimo: I can't believe it. Ridge and Brooke are stuck at the cabin?

Bridget: They got snowed in.

Massimo: Oh, come on. What were they doing there in the first place? As if I should even ask!

Bridget: They were skiing.

Massimo: Oh, is that what you call it?

Bridget: This is all ridiculous. She can't control the weather, Massimo.

Massimo: Of course not. Spending the night is just a bonus. A woman as committed as your mother certainly can't wait until dark.

Bridget: She's not out to seduce him.

Massimo: Oh, please. She's probably already succeeded.

Bridget: No, I talked to her.

Massimo: Oh? So you were concerned?

Bridget: No. Look, they went up to the cabin to go skiing. They got snowed in. That's all.

Massimo: Come on!

Bridget: It was an accident.

Massimo: No. What accident? What are you talking about accident? This is the way she operates, Bridget -- plausible deniability. No matter how dubious her motives are, she is never at fault.

Bridget: You're wrong.

Massimo: No, Bridget. This is wrong. Your mother luring Ridge up to the cabin, using passion and sex, while you are here watching the children. What about her own child, huh? What about Hope? See, Brooke doesn't mind leaving her own child at home while she's on the top of some mountain romping around like some sex-crazed bunny! I think that speaks volumes about her priorities, don't you? Just as you're here watching the children speaks volumes about you.

Bridget: I'm watching the kids because Ridge asked me to.

Massimo: He could have called Catherine.

Bridget: This is their first night without him since Taylor died. He just thought they might be more comfortable with me.

Massimo: Yes, because he's more comfortable knowing they're with you.

Bridget: I guess.

Massimo: He trusts you, Bridget.

Bridget: Yes.

Massimo: Which is a hell of a lot more than we can say for your mother.

Bridget: Listen, you think you can do better than my mother? Fine. Why don't you -- why don't you introduce him to someone else? Why don't you set him up on a date? I don't care. Just leave me the hell out of it.

Massimo: There are very few people like you, Bridget.

Bridget: I'd thank you for the compliment, Massimo, if it weren't so incredibly creepy.

Massimo: Tell me something. What is so wrong that I want the best for my son? For my grandchildren? You're a woman of integrity and honesty, okay? You could bring to this family things your mother never could, such as dignity and respect.

Bridget: Unfortunately, for you, I have too much dignity and respect to even consider what you're suggesting.

Massimo: What am I suggesting here? I'm only reacting to what I see. The way the children interact with you. The way Ridge relies on you. Your connection to the four of them.

Bridget: Don't.

Massimo: Look, Bridget, I'm not trying to pressure you, okay? And I do not want you to be uncomfortable. I just want you to think about this. Before you pass on anything, just think -- okay -- what a difference you could make in their lives.

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

Ridge: Talk about sending mixed messages here. Now what other things could we possibly do, huh? Other things?

Brooke: How about a massage to work out some of that sexual tension, hmm?

Ridge: Oh, now that's intriguing. But I don't know. I don't want to rush anything. I think maybe I should think about it some.

Brooke: Well, it's a limited, one-time offer.

Ridge: Well, then it would be highly irresponsible of me to turn it down, wouldn't it? Logan --

Brooke: You know something? You really shouldn't tease me, 'cause I was being serious.

Ridge: Oh, who's teasing who here?

Brooke: Oh, that's it. Roll over.

Ridge: Why?

Brooke: Because I want to wipe that smirk right off of your face.

Ridge: What smirk? Don't play games with me, Logan.

Brooke: I'm not playing games with you. 'Cause these feelings that we share, these desires -- they're really very significant. But if we're going to do this, I just want to wait and make it right.

Ridge: And what would we be waiting for?

Brooke: I don't know -- our wedding night?

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

Massimo: You must know how much Ridge cares about you.

Bridget: As a sister. God! Why do I have to keep reminding you of that? You want to keep pushing this, fine, Massimo. But I'm not gonna buy it.

Massimo: I am simply stating the facts as I see it. You could have an impact on this family.

Bridget: An impact?

Massimo: Uh-huh.

Bridget: What you're suggesting could blow my family apart.

Massimo: I'm sorry. Look, I am sorry. I'm upsetting you.

Bridget: You know what? You really are upsetting me. I would like you to leave.

Massimo: Bridget, please, listen to me? Look at me. Try to understand, okay? I wouldn't even contemplate such a thing if I didn't think so highly of you. See, when I see you with Ridge and the children, I know -- I just know how right it could be. No, no, no, no. Okay. I'll go.

Bridget: Thank you.

Massimo: Please tell Thomas and the girls I said good night.

Bridget: I will.

Massimo: They're my grandchildren, Bridget. They've been through so much. I just want the best for them. And I know, deep down, you do, too.

Bridget: Oh, god.

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

Ridge: Our wedding night?

Brooke: It was a joke, not an ultimatum.

Ridge: I don't know. I think a part of you means it.

Brooke: Well, ideally, yes. I would like to wait until we've made that kind of commitment.

Ridge: Why? Because then you'll know that I was ready?

Brooke: I always know when you're ready, Ridge. But if we wait and we give ourselves to each other mind, body, and soul, then we know we've done it right. But if we don't, then we don't have anything to regret.

Ridge: You think we'll actually get to that point, huh?

Brooke: Well, we've done it before.

Ridge: You're not answering my question.

Brooke: All right. Let's just say if we do, you have a lot to look forward to.

Ridge: Oh, really?

Brooke: We're gonna make love like we've never done before.

Ridge: Keep talkin'.

Brooke: I'm going to lock you up in the bridal suite, and I'm not gonna let you out for a week.

Ridge: A week? Boy, that's a long time. What if I get bored?

Brooke: Oh, no. No, you'll never get bored. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. And I will fulfill you in every possible way.

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

[Bridget dreaming]

Massimo: When I see you with ridge and the children, I know -- I just know how right it could be.

Ridge: Oh, well. Well, look who's home. Girls: Bridget!

Bridget: Hello, you guys. Oh! I'm so sorry Iím late.

Ridge: It's quite all right. It's quite all right. All right, guys, let's go get washed up, then go help grandpa in the kitchen. He's cooking up a wonderful dinner.

Steffy: I'll race you to the kitchen!

Bridget: I got slammed with an emergency appendectomy right before my shift ended.

Ridge: Oh, no -- how'd it go?

Bridget: Well, complete success.

Ridge: That's my little miracle worker.

Bridget: Well, I wouldn't go that far.

Ridge: If you knew what you'd done for us -- I never thought I'd be happy again, and I'm very happy. So are the kids.

Bridget: I couldn't have asked for anything more incredible than this.

Ridge: Yeah, I guess I am quite a catch, aren't I?

Bridget: Um, yeah. Yeah. I was talking about our life.

Ridge: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. That's incredible, too.

Bridget: Unbelievable is more like it.

Ridge: That's true. How would I have known the woman that I'd been searching for this whole time is right next to me.

Bridget: I love you.

Ridge: I love you, too, princess. [Massimo clears throat] [Massimo speaks in Italian]

Ridge: That would be "dinner's ready." Come on.

Bridget: I think so. Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. I want to tell you something.

Ridge: I hope it's not that you're not hungry.

Bridget: No.

Ridge: He just cooked a mountain of pasta.

Bridget: No, I'm starving.   I've been looking forward to this all day.   That is what I wanted to tell you. You know that I love what I do. You know my job is very important to me. And sometimes it does take up a lot of my time. But I want you to know something. No matter what happens at the hospital, no matter how many lives I save, the best part of my day is coming home to you and the kids and the love we share. [Bridget gasps]

Bridget: Oh, god. Oh, no.
