The Bold and The Beautiful Transcript Friday 4/25/03
Stephanie: What are you doing?
Brooke: Trying to figure out who to call first. Associated press, reuters? I mean, this is a big, big story, right? Stephanie forrester, american icon, first lady of fashion, patron saint, finally exposed as a fraud. Megan, get jerry springer on the line for me, please.
Stephanie: Are you crazy? You can't do something like that! Not to me! Not to me.
Darla: Yes. Mm-hmm. And then, after the -- the procedure, how long will i be in recovery? All right. I will. Okay, thank you. Bye. Well, that's taken care of now, thorne. You can go.
Thorne: Darla --
darla: You and macy have an appointment today, don't you? With your fertility specialist? God -- don't tell me god has a sense of humor, huh?
Thorne: I'm sorry.
Darla: Me, too. You should go.
Thorne: I don't want to.
Darla: No, it's okay. Just go. Oh, god, thorne, please go. Please go. It's okay.
ridge: Brooke and my mother are together right now?
Massimo: Your mother interrupted brooke and me.
Ridge: You left them there together?
Massimo: She asked me to leave.
Ridge: So she had no idea that brooke knows you're my father, then?
Massimo: Well, I'm sure she does by now.
Ridge: Oh, god, i'm sure the whole western hemisphere knows by now, massimo. Brooke's gonna want to shout it from every rooftop. Now my father's gonna find out in the worst possible way, thanks to you.
Massimo: Ridge -- so what if the truth comes out, huh?
Ridge: If the truth comes out, massimo, we're through. You got me? We're through. I told you you'd lose me! You wouldn't listen, damn you! You wouldn't listen to me!
Massimo: What the hell is it gonna take? What?
Stephanie: You destroyed my marriage once. It's not gonna happen again/
brooke: What marriage, stephanie? You trapped him twice. First with a baby that's not even his, and now with this lie.
Stephanie: Oh, shut up. As if you really cared about eric. If you did, you'd realize he loses everything if you can't keep your big, fat mouth shut.
Brooke: Oh, no. No, you're not gonna blame this on me, because this is all your fault. You put him in this position. And I'm not gonna even mention what you've done to ridge and massimo.
Stephanie: What, now you're worried about massimo? Please, let's be honest here. This is all about revenge on your part.
Brooke: And don't you think i'm entitled, after everything that you put me through?
Stephanie: That i've put you through?
Brooke: Yes. Oh, my god, you still don't even see it, do you? Everything you've done to me is much worse than anything i've ever done to you.
Stephanie: Oh, worse than having your son-in-law's baby?
Brooke: Okay. Okay, you know what? You just keep telling yourself how far superior you are. But I don't think eric's going to see it that way.
dr. Sanders: Hello, macy.
Macy: Doctor, hi.
Dr. Sanders: No thorne?
Macy: Not yet. I'm sure he's on his way, though.
Dr. Sanders: Should we wait?
Macy: No. I'm -- i'm just so anxious to hear what you found.
Dr. Sanders: I can imagine.
Macy: So this was a much more detailed image than what you saw on the hsg?
Dr. Sanders: Yes, it was.
Macy: And -- and was the blockage what you thought?
Dr. Sanders: Uh-huh. Scar tissue from secondary infections after the accident.
Macy: Well, do you still think you can remove it?
Dr. Sanders: It's a possibility.
Macy: That's -- that's wonderful. Thorne is gonna be so happy. I mean, I realize if you had said no, that in vitro fertilization was an option, but, you know, of course, we'd rather not go through all of that.
Dr. Sanders: Macy -- there's something else.
Stephanie: Ridge will never forgive you.
Brooke: He's protecting you, stephanie. You're his mother. He loves you. For some reason, i don't feel that same sense of obligation, and why should i?
Stephanie: How would you like me to have treated you? Oh, miss logan, it's so nice to meet you. Please come in. And while you're at it, have sex with my husband -- my sons, as well. And I would be eternally grateful if you'd break up their marriages, too.
Brooke: Keep digging that hole, stephanie. I'm gonna love burying you in it.
Stephanie: Could we just forget about you and me for a moment?
Brooke: Yeah, you'd like that, wouldn't you?
Stephanie: Could you just think about the family? The family that you keep telling me you want to be part of.
Brooke: Kristen and thorne are going to be fascinated to find out what their sainted mother's been up to. And bridget -- she looks up to you so much. She always wanted me to be just like you. She's gonna be really surprised to find out that her big brother isn't her big brother after all.
Stephanie: If this comes out, bridget's the one that's gonna surprise you.
Brooke: Bridget? What do you mean? Ridge. Ridge -- what you've been through. I'm so sorry. It all makes sense to me now. Everything you said about being confused, not knowing who you are. You'd just found out that massimo is your father.
Ridge: Yeah, it's been one hell of a ride.
Brooke: I'm here if you need me.
Brooke: Why didn't you tell me?
Stephanie: Because he doesn't trust you. She wants to tell eric, and she's threatening to go to the media.
Brooke: The truth has to come out, ridge. You can't keep living like this.
Stephanie: Ridge, you stop her.
Dr. Sanders: Hello, mr. Forrester.
Thorne: Hi. Sorry I'm late. I -- it's bad news?
Macy: Doctor, could you just give us a minute?
Dr. Sanders: Of course. I'll be just down the hall in my office if you have any more questions.
Thorne: Thank you.
Dr. Sanders: Mm-hmm.
Thorne: They couldn't remove the scar tissue?
Macy: She still may be able to do that.
Thorne: Really? Well, that sounds like good news.
Macy: There's more. When she did the laparoscopy, she found something -- a growth.
Macy: In my uterus, and the doctor said that it -- it might be cancerous.
stephanie: She just wants revenge. She doesn't give a damn about our family.
Brooke: Like you do? She's just trying to save her own neck. Eric deserves to know the truth. It would set him free. He could find someone worthy of him.
Ridge: Brooke -- you want to get her back. I -- i actually understand that. But I can't let you do that, brooke.
Brooke: Ridge, no. It has to come out. It'd be for the best.
Ridge: The best for whom, brooke?
Brooke: For everybody. For you. You're living a lie. Honesty means so much to you.
Ridge: Brooke, there are things that are more important than that right now.
Brooke: Like what?
Ridge: My kids. I don't want to put them through this.
Brooke: Ridge, this doesn't have to affect them.
Ridge: Of course it's going to affect them. They just lost their mother. They're just feeling they got their feet back on the ground now. Now I'm gonna take away their grandfather, their name, their identity?
Brooke: No, we can help them work through this.
Ridge: Why? So you can extract your pound of flesh here?
Brooke: Has she ever shown me any mercy?
Ridge: Okay, look, look, don't -- don't keep this secret for her. Keep it for my kids. Keep it for dad. Keep it for me.
Brooke: God, ridge, you're asking too much.
Ridge: Come on, brooke, come on.
Brooke: No, she is going to pay. She needs to suffer the way she made me suffer all of these years.
Ridge: I understand why you're feeling this way. I really do.
Brooke: No. No, you don'T. You know, she looked at me in the eye and she told me that i was a slut, that i was nothing, that I was so disgusting that nobody would ever love me. And I actually believed her, because I respected her. If i'd known who she really was and this lie that she's been living, things would be different, ridge. Things would be completely different.
Stephanie: Oh. So now it's my fault your whole life?
Ridge: Oh, mother, come on, stop it.
Brooke: I can't get those years back. I can't even convince her that she's wrong. But I can give her a little taste of what she's given me. You are going down, stephanie forrester. And I'm gonna love every minute of it.
Turn down the light turn down the bed
turn down these voices inside my head
lay down with me tell me no lies
just hold me close don't patronize
don't patronize me 'cause i can't make you love me
if you don't you can't make your heart beat
something it won't here in the dark
in these final hours i will lay down my heart
and i'll feel the power but you won't
no, you won't 'cause i can't make you love me
if you don't
darla: It's macy's future. Not mine.
Macy: She doesn't know yet. She wants to do a biopsy.
Thorne: Oh, my god. But look, even if it is, they caught it early, okay? And macy, they didn't even see it on the first x-ray.
Macy: I know. I know. It's probably nothing.
Thorne: Right. You're right. It's not. Hey, we've overcome a lot worse than this.
Macy: I know.
Thorne: When's the biopsy?
Macy: I need to know, thorne. If i have to wait to find out, then i'm just gonna go crazy.
Thorne: I know, so will i. How soon can they tell us?
Macy: Right away. Dr. Sanders is gonna have a pathologist waiting. And if the growth is benign, then they're gonna go ahead and do microsurgery on the tubes to remove the blockage. Which is great. Then after -- after I recover, we can go ahead and start trying to have our baby.
Thorne: Right. Macy, what if it's not benign?
Macy: Well, that depends. They may be able to cut it out if it hasn't spread at all. Which it probably hasn't. I mean, like you said, they -- they caught it early, right?
Thorne: Right. Right. Did she give you a worst-case scenario?
Macy: She -- she asked me to sign a release.
Thorne: What kind of release?
Macy: To give her permission to do a hysterectomy.
Thorne: Oh, honey --
macy: It's not gonna happen, thorne, though. It's just a precaution.
Thorne: I know. I know. I know it is.
Ridge: All right, let's just all calm down for a minute.
Brooke: I'm sorry. I know this is not what you want.
Ridge: This can't happen, brooke. You cannot tell anyone massimo is my father.
Stephanie: He'll never forgive you.
Brooke: He will. In fact, someday, you're going to thank me, ridge.
Ridge: For what? For dragging us all through the mud? Brooke, I know what you're going through here. I do. I know what you're feeling. But I'm asking you, please, please, put your personal interests aside here. Rise above it, because so many people are gonna be hurt. Please do that.
Brooke: Ridge, you said no more secrets, remember? How am i going to look eric in the eye?
Ridge: The same way i do, brooke. The man is happy. He's put his marriage back together, and he's very proud of that.
Brooke: Because he doesn't know who she is. He never has. My god, she was living with massimo, her ex-lover, while she was beating up on eric for supporting me, his ex-wife.
Ridge: I know all that.
Brooke: Well, then, you know why I need to expose her.
Ridge: Brooke, listen to me. Please, put your personal interests aside. You promised me that you'd be the woman I could count on, the woman my kids can count on. Well, that's exactly what I need right now.
Brooke: Ridge, it's wrong.
Ridge: I'm asking you, please, I'm begging you, do this for me. Please do this for me.
Brooke: You're off the hook. Seems like nobody's going to hear about your dirty, little secrets. Not from me, anyway. The whole world's going to believe that you're a saint -- even your husband. But you and I will know better, won't we? You will never, never pass judgment on me again.
