Jackie: Ridge and bridget ve had him very, very deeply -- hu him very, very dely and i just hopeor his sake he can get past that because that poor girl has ner needed her father's love and understanding more than she does now.

Eric: My reaction cabin was to -- must ha hur you too.
Bridget: U were i shock. What you saw between ridgend -
eric: Look, honey, that's what is makes all of this is doift.
-- Diult. The very thing that apals me about all this is the same reason i cannot walk away from it. I know ridge is noty so, and I know that the two of you are not ... I know the two of you aren't related. But i still think of you both as my childr.
Bridget: And we let you down.
Ic: We all let each other down. We faile each her. Stepnie failed m,and ridge failedbrooke and I and iiledyou.
Bridget: No, you didn'T.Ic: Yes we D. I should havbeen aware of whatas happening with you. My god, you we sufferg from a huge brayal, and you needed somebody you c dependn. You needed swg you cld go to, d ihould have bee the one to comfort you. Not ridge.
Bridget: Dad, you thought I was over it. So did I.
Eric: Yeahwell, you weren'T. And as yr father, should ha been aware of that. I should have seen that.
Bridget: We didn't want you to see that we didn't want y to e any of it. Ridge and i, w wanted to protect you.
Eric: It's not your job. It's not your job to protect me. You've taken onoo much. Way too much. Taking care of ridge and his kids and standg up at your mother's wedding.
Bridget: I really did want their marriageo work.
Eric: I knoyo did. For all the wro reaso. You're a good girl. And you always want to do the right thing. But this is all way too much for yo
Brooke: I see. So I'm the one resible for this. I'm the one who poisoned my daughter's mind. No. It's your preciou massimo marone who is behind all of this.
Stephanie: If she had any moralseuldn't have listened to a word said.
Brooke: And if you wouldn't have slept with him,he wouldn't have had athing to say. Lyinis such a great way to start a marriage, and a wedding is a great way to keep a secret. And, hey, why not have an affair if nobody finds out about it. Right?
Stephae: I didn'tave an affair.
Brooke: You did ha baby with him, didn't you, stephanie? And that is the problem here. Idget is not confused because i set a bad exale. She's cond because she found out ridge isn't really hebrother. So don't you dare blehis on m checkered past. Why don't you blame it on yours? You kn, I am so sick and tired of arguing with you like this.
Sthanie: There really isn' anything left to argue about, is there? You've lost your daughter, and youleslost ridge.
Broo: You're the one who's lostm, stephanie. And I'm going make sure the family survive this istupidmistake of urs.
Ephanie: The only mistake that I haveever made in my whole life was letting you in our lives.
Br: Ju geout. Ta yrier th tho attitude andget t ofere!
Bridget: Dad, this wasy fault. I don't want to you blame ridge for this.
Eric: I T. I did.
Did bla ridge f this. Ihought tt he should have stopped this from happening. But thct is, hs been manipulated just as badly as you. Honey, massi marone is a very, very bad person. He's calculating, he's vindictive, he's manipulative, and he's so, so lfish. The d he dame to la, he's been chig away at our family. He's been trying to undermine ormorals and he's mocking our business. And he stroyed my marriage. And he took my son. And he trying to take away what you and I have. I'm notoing to let him.
