The Bold and The Beautiful Transcript Friday 2/14/03
Ridge: A little late for explanations, don't you think, brook?
Brooke: Yes, I know and I should have told you about hope sooner.
Ridge: You didn't tell me at all. I had to find out through your lover.
Brooke: Deacon was not my lover.
Ridge: He was. How could you do that, your own daughter's husband?
Brooke: Ridge, that was the biggest mistake of my life, and all your anger and your disillusionment, I understand that because that's exactly how I felt too. You can't begin to imagine what it feels lick to realize how weak you really are. I was I a terrible place in my life. I was weak and I was gullible. And deacon told me that he was leaving Bridget. I really believed that their marriage was over. And I know that that is no excuse. But in the state that I was in, it made -- it made sense. It made it all bearable.
Ridge: Yeah, whatever.
Brooke: Ridge, I'm not telling you this to justify what I did. I'm just telling you because I want you to understand where I was at.
Ridge: You were lonely, right, that you were lonely, okay?
Brooke: I was lonelier than I've ever been and now that loneliness has turned to shame. And I was going to tell you, ridge. I really was. I just didn't want to ruin everything that we had found, especially after everything that you had lost. Please... just say something.
Ridge: It's the most pathetic thing I've ever heard. You betray your -- your own child because you didn't want to be lonely. You sleep with her husband because you're emotionally paralyzed? I don't know which one is more disappointing here, the fact that you did it or the fact that you think that I could forgive you for what you've done.
Brooke: I guess we don't have anything to say.
Ridge: And I haven't exactly been listening to you very well, have I? I think I'm spending too much time with Brooke. It's all right. It's all right, because all that's going change.
Hey, good looking.
Bridget: Hey, you, you're back.
Bridget: How are you doing?
C.J.: Well, I think I can honestly say I've never been this happy in my entire life.
Bridget: I can tell. You're beaming.
C.J.: So, Bridget, I just derby still can't believe it. I mean, Macy is alive. It's like my wildest dreams have come true. My mom is doing okay. I mean, my entire life changed in one instant. Come here, you. Bridget: Oh. Oh, yeah. I know I mean, it's all anybody can talk about around here, may Alexander is back from the grave.
C.J.: Um, look, Bridget, I'm -- I'm really sorry, okay? I would have called and told you everything myself. Believe, I wanted to. I just got so caught up in everything. I'm helping may get set up at the house, I'm helping my dad make sure my mom stays in bed, which is a j job in itself. So things have been a little crazy.
Bridget: You don't have to explain it to me. I'm really happy for you.
C.J.: You don't look too happy.
Bridget: I don't want to get you down. I mean, things are a little crazy with my family too. Ridge and my mom are having some problems.
C.J.: And that's bad?
Bridget: I think it might be effecting the kids. Thomas called me today. He sound very upset. He wanted me to come over tonight, and I wanted to say yes --
C.J.: But you didn't.
Bridget: No. And now I have this really strange feeling I should have.
Brooke: Ridge, I didn't come here to ask for your forgiveness. I know it's a long time coming.
Ridge: Oh, I don't think you really know how long, Brooke.
Brooke: I'm a patient woman.
Ridge: Aren't you afraid you might get lonely, huh? God knows what you might do.
Brooke: Ridge, I'm not the same person that I was. I learned from that experience. And will learn from this one too. We both will.
Ridge: Oh, I think I've learned my lesson, all right.
Brooke: I know you're angry and you're bitter and I need to close yourself off from me and close your heart. But I'm glad you opened your heart to Bridget. She told me that you stayed the night there. And I think that's good. I think you both need somebody to talk to. And it's great that you can both find comfort in each other. (Coughing)
Thomas: Why don't I feel better? Why isn't this working?
The touch of your hand
will moisten my skin
like a shadow I can't embrace
wherever it is
is where it begins
without ever leaving a trace
so you lay and -- you live in me
and I live in you
and the les is for love to tell
Thomas: Can you come over tonight?
Bridget: Sweetie, I'm sorry, I don't -- I don't think I can.
Thomas: Please? We'll be real quiet and we won't bother you if you have to study.
Bridge: I wish I could, but I can't, not tonight.
C.J.: Bridget, look, I really wouldn't worry about it, okay? I'm sure that Thomas is fine. You want to know what worries me? The only thing you seem to be concerned about is what's best for ridge and the kids. What about you? Bridget, what about what's best for you?
Bridget: I'm trying to do both.
C.J.: Yeah, well, I hate to tell you this, but it's not working. Look, I don't want to seem callous here or anything, but this whole thing seems a little bit lopsided to me. I mean, when Taylor died, you offered to pitch in, which was wonderful. And you practically end u up living over there? I mean, ridge takes you to Europe and you spend the entire time hanging out with him and the kids. I mean, Bridget, you are the smartest student at one of the hardest programs in the country. You don't need to be ridge's nanny.
Bridget: I'm not his nanny. You don't understand, I wanted to be with ridge and the kids in Portofino. I chose to spend all that time at the house. I've treasured every single second I've spent with those kids. It's not an obligation, C.J.. it's not a duty. I did it because there's nothing else in the world I wanted to do more.
C.J.: Wow. I guess you really fell in love, huh?
Ridge: You're glad I went to see Bridget?
Brooke: Well, I wish you hadn't run out of the house the way you did, but if you had to go anywhere, I'm glad that you showed up on her doorstep.
Ridge: You know why I went?
Brooke: You were worried about her.
Ridge: I didn't think there was any way in hell that she really forgave you, Brooke. I knew deep down inside, she was as angry with you as I was. And you know what? I was right.
Brooke: Whatever she said to you, ridge, is between the two of you.
Ridge: You don't really want to hear it, do you?
Brooke: If Bridget wanted me to know, she would have told me.
Ridge: oh, that's great. That's very accommodating of you. Where was all that respect when you were sleeping with her husband?
Brooke: Taking pot shots at me isn't going to make you feel better, ridge.
Ridge: No, you're right, it's not. You said you didn't want me to forgive you. Actually, I wish I could. I think it would be a lot easier that way, if I was able to just say it's in the past, it's done with, we don't have to think about it and move on with our lives now. It would be great. I mean, Bridget tried to do that. She gave it her best shot but she couldn't do it, Brooke, because all the hurt and the bitterness is still there. I just can't -- I can't live my life like that, okay?
Ridge? What's going on?
Massimo: Brooke, I must say, I'm surprised to see you here.
Ridge: She was just leaving.
Massimo: I think that would be for the best. Where are the kids?
Ridge: Thomas is upstairs. The girls are staying over at a friend's house.
Massimo: Too bad because I had a surprise for them. A good one.
Ridge: Massimo, could you give that to t Thomas? Because he could use some cheering up.
Massimo: Certainly. Do you think floor seats to the Lakers would do it?
Ridge: I think that would probably work real well.
Ridge: I'll go up and tell him that you're here.
Brooke: I'll just let myself out.
Massimo: Don't worry, if she gets lost, I'll be only too happy to show her the door.
C.J.: The kids, it's like you really fell in love with them, didn't you?
Bridget: Yeah. Well, they're very special.
C.J.: Well, you're right about that, they are. And you're also right about them having been through a lot this year. Bridget, so have you. This has been a roller coaster year for you too.
Bridget: I'm dealing with it.
C.J.: Yes, yes, you are. That and everyone else's problems too.
Bridget: C.J., Come on, there's nothing wrong with helping people.
C.J.: No, no, you're right, there isn't. That is not where I'm coming from at all, okay? Believe me, I have gotten enough of your help to know that you're really good at it. Bridget, you are such a caring, loving, giving person. And that is great, if you are on the receiving end. But I really think it's starting to take its toll on you. I mean, you can't go on like this, not taking care of yourself. Yes, you love those kids, but they are not your responsibility. You know, their lives aren't going to collapse if you're not there 24 hours a day. You know what? If ridge really cares about you, I'm sure he would say the same thing. (Coughing)
Thomas: I don't feel so good.
Brooke: You don't need to give me lecture, Massimo. I already got one in your from your sidekick, Stephanie.
Massimo: Why would I feel like lecturing you on morality? Your entire life is a quintessential cautionary tale.
Brooke: I don't think ridge would appreciate his boss talking to me that way.
Massimo: I'm more than his boss. I'm his friend. And I'll be damned if I'm going to let you come in here and re-spin your web. He is free of you, Brooke, okay? And there's not a damn thing you can say to change that.
Brooke: You have no idea what ridge and I have been through, the crises we've survived.
Massimo: Oh, listen, you know, I'm sure you're going to survive this, both of you. But you're not going to survive it as a couple. You are not going to move into this house. You are not going to be the mother of his children. Go create some honorable friend act in some other family -- create some other havoc in some other family, for god's sake. You know something? Why don't you find someone else's life to ruin? I have an idea. Why don't you call deacon up. From what I understand you two are made for each other, self-issue, kniving, despicable to the core.
Brooke: That's it. I don't need to stand here and listen to this. I am leaving!
Massimo: Good, because as far as I'm concerned you never have toll come back.
Brooke: You've want this had for a long time, haven't you?
Massimo: Getting rid of you, Brooke, I'm halfway there.
Ridge: Hey, sport, Massimo's got a couple of tickets --
-- got a couple of tickets -- god, Thomas, Thomas, can you hear me? Thomas -- Thomas, what have you done? What have you done? Massimo, come -- Massimo, Massimo, call 911! I need some help up here!
Massimo: What? Thomas --
Brooke: I'll make the call.
Ridge: Oh, Thomas, hang on, buddy. Help's coming. Help's coming.
Massimo: Oh, dear god. Thomas -- ridge, what happened?
Thomas: He must have gotten in the liquor cabinet.
Ridge: Thomas, come on. Open your eyes. Thomas! What have you done here? Thomas, wake up...
