Dominick: You want me -- dead? That's what you came here to tell me?

Massimo: I want answers. That's what I want. What the hell happened out there?

Dominick: I told you what I know.

Massimo: Ah, yes. A 54-ton tanker just flew up out of the water and comes slamming down on a reef.

Dominick: I know that it sounds crazy.

Massimo: Look, if you want to cover your incompetence, at least come up with something plausible.

Dominick: It's the truth!

Massimo: It's a lie! And you're a coward. Worse, a fool, if you think I'm not gonna find out what you did. I have a full-scale investigation going on.

Dominick: And nobody wants answers more than me!

Massimo: Wow, then we'll see about that, now won't we? And there'll be no escaping your responsibility in it. And no escaping me.

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

April: I was good. I had the whole place was rockin'. C'mon, you have to admit it.

Deacon: I think you've had all the ego-stroking you're gonna get for one night.

April: What else is an agent for, huh?

Deacon: Hey, hey, I am not your agent.

April: Oh, okay. Then why'd you stop me from signing another week at that club, huh?

Deacon: Because you have other things to do.

April: Another gig?

Deacon: Maybe.

April: Oh, but you're not my agent. Listen, bud, you'd better jump on this while you got the chance. 'Cause pretty soon everyone's gonna want a piece of my action.

Fan: Can I have your autograph?

April: See? Who's that?

Deacon: That is opportunity knocking. Hey, listen to me. You, be nice. Cruz?

Cruz: Coma etsa?

Deacon: Stay here.

Cruz: It's been a long time. How are you?

Deacon: Good to see you. Good to see you.

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

Ridge: What did you call this again?

Stephanie: I called it a Ridgeridoo. Well, you know, it's yours, that's why I thought, you know, I would call it a Ridgeridoo. It's actually a didgeridoo. It's an aboriginal instrument. Yes.

Ridge: Yes, yeah.

Stephanie: It's a musical instrument.

Ridge: Hmm-mm.

Stephanie: You just blow it. Put your lips together and blow.

Ridge: Okay, easier said then done.

Stephanie: But, of course, you have to vibrate your lips.

[Didgeridoo sounds]

Stephanie: My God, you did it. You did it. You're gonna be very popular at parties, darling.

Ridge: Yeah. I'll be known as the man with vibrating lips.

Stephanie: Yes, very popular with the girls too.

Ridge: Lovely. Thank you. You're riding high tonight, aren't you?

Stephanie: Well, that's what honeymoons do for you.

Ridge: You should take more of them.

Stephanie: You know, you're right. That's exactly what I told your father. Look, let's settle something once and for all. I don't want you to give me that look every time I refer to Eric as your father. He is your father, period.

Ridge: And Massimo?

Stephanie: Massimo just has to accept the situation.

Ridge: Yeah, well, that's asking a lot.

Stephanie: You know what I've learned. You don't ask Massimo. You insist.

Ridge: I well know that. He was ready to announce to the world that I was his son. I had to tell him that he would lose me.

Stephanie: I know that wasn't very easy for you.

Ridge: I didn't really have a choice. I was not gonna subject dad to that kind of humiliation.

Stephanie: I was surprised to find you home. We saw that news about that Mexican oil spill. I mean, is it as bad as they say?

Ridge: Worse.

Stephanie: I'm sorry.

Ridge: Massimo's beside himself. He was absolutely determined to never have something like this happen at Marone.

Stephanie: Did he go down?

Ridge: Yeah. He's down there now.

Stephanie: Well, that's good. It keeps him away from Bridget, putting any more silly ideas in her head.

Ridge: Actually, Bridget's down there right now, too.

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

[Phone rings]

Jackie: Oh, excuse me. Bridget, isn't it?

Bridget: Yes.

Jackie: Is Dominick doing any better?

Bridget: Much better. Did you wanna go see him?

Jackie: There was someone in there.

Bridget: Oh, Mr. Marone. I told you, he's the owner of the company.

Jackie: Yes, yeah, I know. I just didn't want to interrupt.

Bridget: He's probably gone by now. Anyway, he just wanted to make sure your son was okay.

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

Massimo: If you're thinking about running away, forget it.

Dominick: Running? Oh, you'd hunt me down, is that it?

Massimo: Like a dog.

Dominick: Put me in jail and throw away the key?

Massimo: Why not? You're a murderer.

Dominick: You don't know what you're talking about.

Massimo: You're the captain. The crew, the ship, all your responsibility!

Dominick: Anything could've caused that wreck! Sabotage, a computer glitch --

Massimo: Of course, aliens from outer space. Come on, tell me the truth. 'Cause I'm gonna find out one way or the other. You were drunk?

Dominick: No.

Massimo: You were stoned, high?

Dominick: No! Ask any of my men.

Massimo: Good idea. Why don't we ask your first mate, huh? Let's see. Oh, sorry, he's dead. Seven other witnesses, all dead. Well, aren't you lucky?

Dominick: Son of a bitch!

Bridget: Oh, my God! Stop it! What are you doing?

Massimo: He's adding assault to his other charges!

Bridget: Charges? What are you talking about?

Dominick: If I murder anybody, it'll be you!

Massimo: You're gonna go to jail, my friend, for the rest of your life.

Bridget: Stop it! What's the matter with you?

Massimo: Manslaughter, negligence --

Bridget: It wasn't his fault!

Massimo: Oh, the hell it wasn't.

Bridget: All right, you're leaving. Massimo, can't you see how sick he is?

Massimo: Yeah, what about the ones that are dead?

Bridget: Go, go. Massimo!

Massimo: I'm not finished with you. Not by a long shot.

Aide: Please.

[Door slams]

Bridget: Let me help you.

Dominick: I'm fine.

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

Massimo: I'm so sorry. There you go. You all right? Well, pardon me, seŅora.

Jackie: Massimo.

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

Stephanie: What is Bridget doing in Mexico?

Ridge: She went down there with a medical team to try and help out.

Stephanie: Oh, well then she's not anywhere around Massimo.

Ridge: Well, they could run into each other.

Stephanie: Oh, let's hope that doesn't happen. I don't want him around her. You did talk to her about all of that and you've worked it out? You know, I'm still very upset that he was able to get to her the way he did.

Ridge: Mother, she was just confused. That's all.

Stephanie: Bridget, the young girl who never wanted to anything like her mother, who's always had such a sense of propriety and honor and dignity, thinking that she could have a romantic relationship with you. I guess that show how immature she is or shows irresistible you are.

Ridge: Look, you don't have to worry about Bridget and me, 'cause I have a very full dance card right now.

Stephanie: Am I take it that you're dating again?

Ridge: Well --

Stephanie: Wow, that's great. I knew once was Brooke was out of the picture -- she is out of the picture?

Ridge: No, mother, she's not.

Stephanie: You forgave her. You actually forgave her?

Ridge: You just relax here.

Stephanie: You really think that that slut is worth forgiving.

Ridge: Mother, stop. I don't wanna hear any more of this.

Stephanie: She betrays her daughter, and you want her to raise your children?

Ridge: People make mistakes, as you should well know.

Stephanie: Oh!

Ridge: You should. You know, what do you want it both ways? You want me to forgive and accept you, but not Brooke?

Stephanie: Don't you dare compare me to Brooke.

Ridge: You really think you're all that different? I don't.

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

deacon: There's somebody I want to introduce you to. April Knight, Cruz NuŅez.

Cruz: Mucho gusto.

April: Mucho gusto.

Cruz: She's very lovely. And you were right -- she's very talented.

April: You heard me sing?

Cruz: Mm-hmm.

Deacon: Well, I invited Cruz to come to the club tonight to get his expert opinion.

April: Now I know who you are. You're Cruz NuŅez. You host that variety show.

Cruz: That's right. That's right. But you know what I really enjoy doing is helping young performers such as yourself to get a head start in this business.

April: Wow. You're too good to be true.

Cruz: Right now I'm putting together a charity concert in Miami and I'm looking for a few fresh faces to perform. Would you be interested?

April: Would I be interested?

Deacon: Yes, yes, you would.

April: Of course I'd be interested! Thank you.

Cruz: Well, after what I saw tonight -- I think your friend Deacon is right. You'd be an excellent addition to the evening.

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

Jackie: I did the right thing.

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

Bridget: Why does Massimo blame you?

Dominick: Ask him.

Bridget: Does he have some kind of evidence?

Dominick: There is no evidence. There's one truth here -- eight men are dead. You'd think he'd want to know why instead of looking for a scapegoat.

Bridget: Look, he's upset. I mean, it's a terrible thing what happened, and he was just reacting --

Dominick: Get out! Get out of here! Leave me alone. Wait. Sorry.

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

Stephanie: Are you deliberately trying to make me angry?

Ridge: Mother, it wasn't meant to be an insult. I love you and Brooke very much.

Stephanie: You don't love Brooke! You can't love Brooke!

Brooke: Well, he puts on a pretty good show. Hello, sweetheart.

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

Deacon: This is great.

Cruz: Best of luck to you, April. I look forward to seeing you in Miami.

April: Okay. Bye! I'll see you in Miami! Oh, my God! That was amazing. How did you do that?

Deacon: I used to run this little bar in Vegas. Cruz used to come in when he was scouting new acts. I kept in touch with him.

April: You're good. You're a natural. You have to be my agent.

Deacon: What, and spend the rest of my days kissing your butt? No.

April: Among other things. Don't worry, I'll make it worth your while.

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

Stephanie: So you think he loves you.

Brooke: You would probably say it's lust.

Stephanie: Knowing you? That's what it is.

Ridge: Mother, this is way beneath you.

Stephanie: What are you thinking? Certainly not about your children -- Taylor's children.

Ridge: She's very good with the kids.

Stephanie: Why? Because she gives them parties and takes them for rides in limousines?

Brooke: No, Stephanie, because I love them.

Stephanie: As much as you can love anybody until they get in your way. You know now what she's capable of!

Ridge: I'm not gonna listen to any more of this.

Stephanie: Yes, you are. Ridge, she is not the answer. There's someone out there who will love you. Someone who has wonderful morals and values, that you can appreciate, that your children can look up to. That will make you happy the way Taylor did. Don't settle for this. Don't settle for anyone who isn't as wonderful as Taylor was.

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

Bridget: Look, I know what you're going through right now.

Dominick: For some reason, I really don't think so. I need you to do something for me.

Bridget: What?

Dominick: Get me some clothes. I've got to get out of here.

Bridget: Forget it.

Dominick: Bridget, please, I have to find out what happened to my tanker.

Bridget: There's a whole team of investigators working on that.

Dominick: Hired by Massimo to put the finger on me.

Bridget: You think they'd try to frame you?

Dominick: They're getting paid to put my head on a platter.

Bridget: No, no, Massimo would never do that.

Dominick: And still believe in the tooth fairy, don't ya kid?

Bridget: Look, he might be angry tight now, but he is fair.

Dominick: He called me a murderer -- a cold-blooded killer.

Bridget: He shouldn't have said that.

Dominick: He shouldn't have, but he did. And he's gonna keep on saying it! He's probably with O'Connell's wife right now, telling her he's dead because of me. And I would've died for that man. I'd have died to save all of them. He's a liar. He's a liar, and I'm gonna prove it.

Bridget: No, no, you can't leave. You're not well enough. And it'll look like you're running! Look, the truth's gonna come out. So there's no point risking your life, or getting thrown in jail. Now get back in bed.

[Phone rings]

Bridget: Hello. Captain Payne has no comment. What? Where'd you hear that? Where was it centered? Oh, my God! Oh, my God! It was an earthquake. It was an earthquake! It was underwater. A 6.8.

Dominick: Earthquake. Earthquake. You're sure?

Bridget: Yeah, yeah, they just confirmed it.

Dominick: The jolt. That was a shockwave!

[Alarm sounds]

Bridget: You were less than three miles from the epicenter. It wasn't your fault. It wasn't your fault.
