Brooke: Ridge, it doesn't matter.

Ridge: What do you mean "it doesn't matter"?

Brooke: The woman I am today would never make that kind of mistake! What happened with Deacon --

Ridge: What did happen, Brooke? Huh? What, a one-night stand?

Brooke: Call it whatever you want. It was just a low point in my life.

Deacon: Good. That's good to know.

Brooke: But it was also a turning point, Ridge. I've changed!

Ridge: Yeah -- yeah, you sure have, Logan.

Brooke: Ridge, please!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Amber: What the hell have you done, you idiot?

Rudy: Same old Amber. Feisty as ever. God, I missed you. But listen, I can't tie up this line anymore. What do you say we do lunch?

Amber: Lunch?

Rudy: I got next Monday free.

Amber: Okay, Rudy -- where are you?

Rudy: Where do you think, huh? Where'd I always tell you I'd end up?

Amber: Hollywood.

Rudy: That's right, baby. You're not the only one making dreams come true. I'm sitting right now at the worldwide headquarters of delight productions, incorporated.

Amber: It's the address on the box? Hmm? Is it? Don't move!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stephanie: You have got it so wrong. You have got it so wrong. His world falls apart if he marries Brooke.

Eric: Why can't you let this go? Bridget has forgiven her. Now if her daughter can get past this --

Stephanie: Wait a minute. Who told you that? Who said to you that she's gotten past this? Let me tell you, your daughter is never going to get past what her mother did to her. It's changed her forever! And you haven't even begun to see the repercussions that this is going to cause.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bridget: Okay, two mocha lattes.

Man: We ordered the special.

Bridget: Oh.

Woman: I think those are ours.

Bridget: Sorry. Long day.

Woman: No problem.

Bridget: Here you go. I'll be right back with yours.

Raquel: Hey, what's with you, girl?

Bridget: Ken, I need the specials.

Ken: Coming up.

[Bridget remembering]

Ridge: You know,

I'd like to see what it

felt like to put this

on a beautiful

woman's finger.

Bridget: Oh, no,

Ridge -- not --

Ridge: There.

That wasn't so bad.

Yeah, this is --

this is right.

In fact, this is perfect.

Ken: There you go.

Bridget: Thank you.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brooke: You don't understand!

Ridge: No, Brooke, I don't understand. Bridget knows, doesn't she? She knows all about it.

Brooke: Yes.

Ridge: Oh, god.

Brooke: We're working through it.

Ridge: You're "working through it"? You had a baby with her husband, Brooke! How does she begin to wrap her mind around that, huh? How do I?

Deacon: Maybe a little visualization would help at this point. You know that big brass bed that she has up in her office? Well, picture the two of us on top of it with Bridget waiting downstairs --

Brooke: Oh, god, Deacon! Stop it!

Ridge: Just get out of my house!

Brooke: Yeah, you heard him. Get out now!

Ridge: I wasn't talking to Deacon.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stephanie: What has Bridget said to you?

Eric: She hasn't said anything to me about this.

Stephanie: At all?

Eric: No. She's had several opportunities to tell me about her mother and Deacon, but she hasn't. She shared her view with Massimo, of course. But not me. I can only assume it's because she doesn't want me to know. And so for her sake --

Stephanie: You're gonna pretend you don't. That's what Bridget is starting to do. She's starting to pretend she doesn't know what her mother is capable of. Because it makes it easier for everybody else. But she knows. She knows her mother was willing to sacrifice her. And she knows something else. Brooke will sacrifice Ridge's children, as well.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Raquel: Bridget -- phone.

Bridget: Can you take a message?

Raquel: It's Thomas.

Bridget: Thomas -- ? Thanks. Thomas?

Thomas: Hi.

Bridget: What's up, honey?

Thomas: What's going on with your mom and my dad?

Bridget: You mean tonight?

Thomas: She's here. And we got sent upstairs so they can be alone.

Bridget: Um -- look, sweetie, I'm sure your dad's gonna talk to you about that.

Thomas: He already did. He said he's not gonna do anything I'm not ready for this I'm not ready
for this.

Bridget: Thomas, you know, sometimes things happen that we're not ready for. And that we're not happy about, but other people are. And if you love them, you just try to be happy for them.

Thomas: Is that what you'd do?

Bridget: Yeah.

Thomas: But it's just so hard.

Bridget: I know, sweetie. I know.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brooke: Ridge, please don't do this.

Ridge: I don't want to say something I'm gonna regret.

Deacon: Well, you know what?! Why don't you try saying something you're gonna regret. Let it out, man! Come on! We can put an end to this ridiculous fantasy.

Brooke: There is no fantasy! Ridge, what you and I share is real. What happened in my past, that doesn't matter. You said so yourself. It doesn't matter what other people think!

Ridge: That's right. That is what I said. How'd you keep a straight face when I did say it, huh?

Brooke: What you and I share is magic. It's the way it's supposed to be, Ridge. All of my mistakes --

Ridge: "All your mistakes"? Is that how you classify it? Sleeping with your son-in-law? "Oops, I did it again."

Brooke: No. No, it's changed me. Really, I have changed.

Ridge: Oh, really? Really, Brooke? Well, I gotta tell ya, it doesn't really seem that different from all the other times, all the other lies.

Brooke: Ridge, I didn't want to tell you because it had nothing to do with us. And Bridget didn't want it to get out.

 Deacon: Would you please just stop insulting this guy's intelligence for one second?! The only reason that you did this, Brooke, was so you wouldn't lose him.

Brooke: That's not true!

Ridge: You should really listen to him, actually. This guy might know you better than you know yourself.

Deacon: Oh, not so quick there, pal, all right? I know you, too. I know you couldn't handle Brooke. She's too real for you.

Ridge: Oh, but not too real for you, huh? Well, congratulations, Brooke. After all these years of searching, you finally found him. Your soul mate.

Brooke: Oh, stop it, Ridge. You're the man I've always loved. You know that.

Ridge: And this was -- ?

Brooke: This was nothing. This was two lonely, desperate people reaching out to each other! That's all it was.

Deacon: No, that's a lie.

Brooke: Deacon!

Deacon: No! No, you two are the desperate ones. Both of you pretending that she's something she's not. Just so you don't have to be alone? My god, Brooke, don't you get it? You're never gonna be good enough for him! You're never gonna measure up. That's why I did this. That's why. So you'd see!

[Deacon scoffs] to hell with both of you.

Ridge: I guess he nailed it, huh? The two of us, we've just been playing a big game here.

Brooke: No.

Ridge: Why don't you just get your baby, Brooke, and go home.

Brooke: Ridge, no. We're gonna talk about this, and we're gonna get past this.

Ridge: I already have.

[Knock on door]

Rudy: Well, hell's bells, girl, look at you. Gone all uptown on me and everything.

Amber: Shut up! Shut up, okay? I can't believe you did this! That tape was for us! It was a joke! And you told me you threw it away!

Rudy: I know, I know. And I should've. But I just couldn't. It was sentimental value, you know? I mean, I even knew then that you had somethin' special. Now the whole world's seein' what I  saw.

Amber: Nobody was supposed to see what you saw! This is so humiliating!

Rudy: What are you talking about? Have you seen the movie?

Amber: Yes!

Rudy: You're beautiful! You're art!

Amber: I'm a kid who got conned into having sex with a loser!

Rudy: A loser? A loser?

Amber: Oh, right. I keep forgetting. You are president and CEO of Rudy delight productions. What's with this "delight" thing anyway?

Rudy: It's my professional name.

[Amber laughing]

Amber: Yeah, because this is your idea of professional.

Rudy: We can't all marry success, Amber. Some of us have to work for it, start small.

Amber: Thank god I found out what you were up to in time. You've sold, like, what, like ten of these tapes?

Rudy: 4,673 as of Friday.

Amber: You're telling me that over 4,000 people have seen me having sex?

Rudy: Well, I mean, you gotta figure a bunch of these things have gone out to, like, frat houses and things, so it's probably a lot more.

Amber: Oh, god. Oh, my god.

Rudy: And that's just the beginning! You have no idea of the opportunities out there when you've got a hot property like this. I'm getting calls from all over, real big players. Look at this. I got offers to do merchandising, tours, conventions.

Amber: Rudy, you can't -- you can't do this to me. First of all, it's got to be illegal. Yeah, and second, it's just not cool! I was a stupid kid! I didn't know what I was doing! God, how could you use this against me?!

Rudy: Against you? Baby, I made you a star!

Amber: Rudy, you're not gonna get away with this.

Rudy: What are you worried about? What other people are gonna think? Come on, it's the new millennium. Nobody's gonna care. Look at Rob Lowe or Pamela Anderson. I mean, their careers only got bigger. Someday, Amber -- someday you're gonna thank me for this.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brooke: Ridge, neither one of us has been playing games. We've just been trying to get through this horrid, dark, difficult time in your life. And I really thought that I was helping. And, yes, I didn't want you to find out about the truth. Because I didn't want you to push me away, for your sake and for the children's.

Ridge: No way. No, no, no. You'd be so much better off not mentioning my kids right now.

Brooke: Ridge, I love your kids.

Ridge: Like you love Bridget?

Brooke: I let her down. That doesn't mean that I don't --

Ridge: No, you didn't let her down, Brooke! You didn't let her down at all. You went on the attack is what you did.

Brooke: Look, I can't explain to you what happened. And I'm certainly not going to defend myself!

Ridge: No, you can't explain, and you don't understand it all. And it'll certainly never happen again, right?

Brooke: That's right, it won't!

Ridge: Yeah, well, pardon me if I'm not so sure about that. Pardon me if I don't really want you around my kids.

[Brooke sighs]

 Ridge: Their mother -- their mother, and I was going to replace her with you? God help me. God help me!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rudy: It's so good to see you again. I just -- I can't believe how much you've changed.

Amber: Oh, I've changed, Rudy. And if you think you're dealin' with the same dorky little kid --

Rudy: No, no. No, no. I mean, I knew you'd come up in the world. I seen you on tv, the magazines.

Amber: Yeah. Yeah, I bet. And you just thought you hit the jackpot, didn't you? Huh? Just figured you'd cash in on my success.

Rudy: Is that what you think? Geez, amber, you've gotten hard.

Amber: You don't know the half of it. You know, I was no match for you then, but you do not want to go head-to-head with me now.

Rudy: Of course not. The only way this works is if we work together. I want your input.

Amber: Ooh, oh, I'm gonna give you my input, Rudy. In fact, I will tell you exactly what you can do with "Ambrosia undressed."

Rudy: This is great! This is great! I mean, we could do like -- we could do the reunion tour, like the sex pistols, you know? We can -- oh, oh, oh, oh, Amber -- we could do a sequel.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Eric: Stephanie, stop. Now, look, whether any of us approves or not, there's going to be a wedding, and you're going to accept it.

Stephanie: No, I'm not!

Eric: I'm not asking you! I'm telling you. This family has been through enough in fighting and division. I'm not going to stand for it anymore. Taylor's children need us. They need us to come together as a family, for their father and for their new family. And that's what we're going to do -- for their sake.

Brooke: I've been good for your children, Ridge. And I've been good for you. Have you forgotten everything you said to me just half an hour ago?

Ridge: I'm trying to.

Brooke: This is crazy. I'm the same woman I've been all these months. Nothing has changed. The only thing that has is now you know why. You know why I'm so grounded. You know why I put Hope first. Why I think before I act. Now, I hit bottom last year, and I never want to be in that place again.

Ridge: So what are you saying? This has all been a character-building experience for you?

Brooke: Yes, I am a better person now. And if I've been able to help you at all, it's because of what I've learned.

Ridge: No, Brooke, it's because you lied. Because you kept things from me, the way you always do when you're in trouble. You refuse to deal with reality. It just doesn't exist for you. There's no reason for it. You just -- why even talk about it? It's always the same damn excuses, Brooke! And now you're gonna stand there and tell me how much you've changed?

Brooke: I have!

Ridge: Oh, god, if you believe that, you're even more deluded than I've been.

Brooke: Taylor didn't think so.

Ridge: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. Don't go there.

Brooke: Taylor believed in me. She saw how hard I was trying, and she encouraged me.

Ridge: Did Taylor know the truth, huh? No? I don't think so. And do you think if she did, you think there's a chance in hell she would have wanted you raising her kids?

Brooke: Yes, I do. I really think that she wanted us to be happy, Ridge.

Ridge: Yeah, well, I happen to have known Taylor a lot better than you did, and I happen to know that she'd probably want to throw up.

Brooke: Okay. What I did was horrible. And I can see why you just don't understand it right know, or why you don't accept it. But it was even harder on Bridget. And if she and I could get past this --

ridge: Which I find very hard to believe.

Brooke: We have, Ridge. She has forgiven me. And I'm sure you'll be able to do that, too.

Ridge: Oh, really, Brooke? Oh, really? Why is that, huh? Because you're so unforgettable? Well, maybe you are. Maybe you are. But I'm sure as hell gonna try.

[Brooke sobbing]

Brooke: Oh, god.
