Jackie: My goodness.
Amber: Oh, please. your little prim and proper act doesn't work. Okay? Everyone knows that you're coming on to Eric.
Jackie: And you know this because -- ?
Amber: I told you. I am friends with his wife.
Jackie: Did it ever occur to you that her perception just might be a little bit skewed?
Amber: Did it ever occur to you that she has dealt with your kind before? Hundreds of women have thrown themselves at Eric Forrester.
Jackie: Well, you can rest assured. That's not my style.
Amber: Ugh, you're no different from the rest. You just got better timing, that's all. You know, their marriage hit a little rough spot, and here you come in to take advantage.
Jackie: I gave Eric a friendly ear.
Amber: Oh, yeah? Well, how friendly's the rest of you?
Jackie: I'm going to ask you to leave.
Amber: No. No, I'm not leaving, honey. You are.
[Knock on door]
Eric: Come in.
Stephanie: Thank you -- for letting the security guard allow me to come into the building.
Eric: Don't read too much into that.
Stephanie: I went down to the beach house looking for you, and I met your best new friend, Ms. Payne. She told me my marriage was over. How much should I read into that?
Clarke: Hey, Sally. You hungry?
Sally: Yeah, sure, always. What do you want? We can order in. Chinese food? Pizza? What?
Clarke: Oh, no, no, no, no. Let's go out. Let's go to Las Olas, have a couple of margaritas, some taquitos. I'm buying.
Sally: No, Clarke, sorry.
Clarke: Oh, come on. You know what? We'll tell 'em it's your birthday, and we'll get a free flan.
Sally: Oh, stop my heart. That offer is practically irresistible. But I can't do it. I'm too busy.
Clarke: Really? What are you working on?
Sally: Papers. Papers. You know? Well, actually, I have been spending a lot of time trying to come up with the perfect name for my grandchild.
Clarke: Your grandchild?
Clarke: You know something I don't know?
Sally: I could write a book. But actually, I've been thinking, because we do such business in Italy, something, maybe, Italian? Something like Salvatore? And we could call the baby Sal for short.
Clarke: Salvatore Garrison? What has C.J. done? I'm gonna kill him.
Sally: C.J. did nothing. It's Macy. She and Thorne are thinking about adopting a baby.
Clarke: Really? Well, good for them.
Sally: Yeah. And good for Darla, too.
Sally: Because it is Darla's baby that they're thinking about adopting.
Sally: It's a wonderful idea. It's the perfect solution for everybody. That's why I sent Macy to talk to Darla.
Clarke: Sally, you've got to call her.
Clarke: Get her on the phone. You've got to stop her.
Macy: You need to tell me something about the father.
Macy: Well, you told me that it was a one-night stand, but that you were friends.
Darla: Right. But it's just kind of a mess.
Thorne: Darla, let me do this.
Darla: No, Thorne. It should be me.
Macy: You -- you know what this is about?
Macy: Well, see, Darla? Thorne knows the situation, and he's still excited about raising this baby. Why would you think it would be any different for me?
Jackie: Look, Miss --
Amber: All you need to know about me is I'm on to you.
Jackie: If you really want to be a friend to Stephanie, then I suggest you help her adjust to the fact that her marriage is over.
Amber: You really believe that, don't you? You don't know the first thing about their marriage.
Jackie: Yeah, well, if I don't, then neither does Eric, because he's the one that's telling me.
Amber: He's upset! He's upset. He's angry. Angry people say angry things. But that does not mean that he does not love her, and that does not mean that they're not gonna work it out, especially if they don't have to deal with some home-wrecking hussy like you. And I'm gonna make sure that they don't. If I didn't have a very important meeting right now, I'd just throw you out myself. But since I do, I'll give you a little bit of time.
Jackie: How very kind.
Amber: Two hours. I'm giving you two hours, and you do not want to be here when I get back.
Jackie: Well -- that's true enough.
Sally: What on earth is the matter with you, Bucky?
Clarke: Macy can't blindside Darla like this.
Sally: She's not going to blindside her. She is going to talk to her very gently, very delicately, and she is going to offer her unborn child a home.
Clarke: That's not a good idea.
Sally: What is the issue you have with this?
Clarke: This is not what Darla needs right now, okay? Especially coming from Macy.
Sally: Macy is Darla's best friend.
Clarke: Yeah. And she has everything that Darla wants.
Sally: Oh, you mean like a husband and a good marriage?
Sally: Well, it is sad and unfortunate that the baby's father is not going to be in the picture, but --
Clarke: Oh, no. He's in the picture too much. That's the problem.
Sally: What are you talking about? Hmm? You know, don't you? You know who the baby's father is! I can't -- I absolutely cannot believe it. Darla confided in you instead of with Macy or me? All right. Come on, Clarke. Who is he?
Clarke: Trust me, Sally. You don't want to know. And neither does Macy.
Darla: Macy, I really want this to work out. I want you and Thorne to raise this baby.
Thorne: That's what we all want.
Macy: And that's what the father wants, too, right?
Macy: Then what's -- what's the problem? I mean, is this guy in prison or a drug addict or --
Darla: No, Mace. This guy is wonderful.
Macy: Wonderful. You really care about him, don't you?
Darla: He's a friend.
Macy: He's more than that. Look, if there's any chance that you two could work things out --
Darla: No, no.
Macy: No, because you have to be sure, Darla.
Macy: Darla, listen to me. I don't want to stand in the way of a family coming together.
Darla: We are not a family, nor will we ever be a family.
Macy: What makes you so sure?
Thorne: He's married, Macy. And he's very much in love with his wife.
Darla: No, no, no, no, Mace. It wasn't like that. He was separated when -- the night that we got together. He was really hurting. He thought that his marriage was over. I felt so bad for him.
Macy: That's all you felt?
Darla: Macy, it was a mistake. Do you hear me? It should've never, ever happened. But something so beautiful came out of this mistake -- a little baby. And it's just like what you said, honey. He could be the light of all of our lives.
Macy: Darla, I hope so, too. But I have to tell you, I'm a little bit worried about what you're saying. I mean, this situation could get very, very ugly -- unless he's already told his wife.
Darla: He's been afraid to. He's afraid he might lose her again.
Macy: Well, he probably will.
Darla: No, but he shouldn't. Macy, he is so in love with her. They are so absolutely perfect together. And they could be so happy -- if she could just forgive him.
Macy: It sounds like you care more about their happiness than your own.
Darla: I do really care about both of them.
Macy: The wife, too?
Darla: She's a very good friend.
Macy: Oh. Oh. Oh, no, Darla. Oh, honey. No wonder you're so stressed out. Oh, honey, you poor thing. You -- listen, you can't go on like this. You've just got to break ties with both of them.
Darla: That's not even an option, Macy.
Macy: All right. All right. Well then, you're just going to have to sit down with your friend and just tell her the truth.
Darla: I just did.
Eric: Leave Jackie Payne out of this.
Stephanie: I'd be happy to. I hope you'll do the same.
Eric: We have much bigger problems to deal with.
Stephanie: And are we going to deal with them? I mean, I realize it's a lot easier for you to turn your back on me and the marriage.
Eric: Do you think any part of this is easy for me?
Stephanie: Does that mean you miss me?
Eric: What I miss -- I can't get back.
Stephanie: Probably not. But that doesn't mean that there's nothing worth fighting for.
Eric: Don't fight for me, Stephanie. Don't bother.
Stephanie: Well, that would be like telling me to stop living, Eric.
Eric: You've been doing it so long, it's like second nature to you, isn't it? Lying to your family and manipulating everybody you know, but then telling yourself that you're fighting for the marriage, and so that makes it all right.
Stephanie: Well, if that's the truth, that I rationalized my behavior, that's not so unusual, is it? I mean, don't we all do that to a certain extent?
Eric: To this extent? Passing off another man's child as mine?
Stephanie: I didn't know, Eric. But you're right. When I found out, I lied. And I did that out of love.
Eric: You sound like Brooke.
Stephanie: Brooke? Really? Well, you forgive Brooke for everything she does, don't you? Cheating on you, stealing your company, betraying her daughter -- your daughter. You always overlook everything. Why am I so different? What is it? Don't tell me that you don't love me, Eric, because I know you do.
Eric: You think that makes it easier? That makes it more difficult. Don't you think I would like to get past this? To go back to the way it was just a few days ago? I don't know how to do that. Can you tell me how to do that? Because, Stephanie, I cannot stand here and even talk to you without -- you have to go.
Stephanie: You have to come home so that we can work through this. At the very least, you have to move out of the beach house, because it's pretty apparent to me that ms. Payne has set her sights on you.
Eric: This conversation is over.
Macy: What? What is she saying, Thorne?
Thorne: Macy, the night that Lorenzo left --
Macy: What -- what is she saying?
Thorne: I saw you at your place with him on the bed.
Macy: What are you talking about?
Thorne: Macy, I came there to check on you, because you didn't show up at my parents' house. I saw you telling him how much you loved him and that you always would. And I lost it. I went home. I started drinking. Darla showed up.
Macy: Oh, my God.
Darla: We were drunk, Macy.
Thorne: Macy --
Thorne: Listen -- it didn't mean anything.
Macy: No. No, please.
Thorne: It didn't -- try to understand that I thought you were gone, out of my life again. And I couldn't handle it.
Darla: Macy, this was all my fault.
Thorne: Darla, stop.
Darla: It was, Thorne. Mace, this was the stupidest thing I've done in my entire life. It's been so difficult for us to tell you, but I knew we had to tell you the truth.
Macy: The baby? The baby? It's yours?
Darla: Oh, honey. I was gonna have an abortion. I didn't want any of this to touch you, but Thorne, he stopped it. He thought maybe this could be your chance, because you wanted a child so bad. And I didn't know if it was the right thing to do, but I do now, Mace. This could be the answer for all of us. I know that my child could be so happy with you, sweetie.
Thorne: Mace, listen. Listen. It's here. It's right here. Everything you've always wanted. Honey, I love you so much. And this child? It could be ours. It's the perfect solution.
Amber: I am so sorry I'm late.
Megan: You're lucky. She was, too. But she's on her way up.
Amber: Okay. How do I look?
Megan: Good, but comb your hair or something.
Megan: Okay? Where -- where've you been?
Amber: I went to see that woman Eric's shacked up with.
Megan: You're kidding.
Amber: No. And, Megan, I blasted her.
Megan: Did you really?
Amber: Oh, yeah. Stephanie does not have to worry about her anymore.
Megan: All right. Listen, you need to focus, okay? This is a big, big account.
Amber: I know. I know. To get the department store to carry the Ambrosia Line -- I mean, it would be so huge. Huge.
Megan: Okay. There's the elevator. I'll show her up. Oh, by the way. The new portfolio, it's on the credenza, okay? Good luck.
Amber: Thank you.
Jackie: Oh. Hello.
Amber: Hi. Welcome to --
Stephanie: All right, I'll go. Obviously, you need some time. When I needed some, you gave it to me, so --
Eric: Don't delude yourself. This isn't just some phase I'm going through.
Stephanie: I realize that.
Eric: Do you?
Stephanie: But it's not over. It's never going to be over between us, Eric. I've been part of your life for so many years. Part of you for so many good years. You can shut me out of this building. But you can't shut me out of your heart.
Sally: Bucky, I know you. Whenever you get secretive, I get worried. Darla's in over her head, isn't she? And it has to do with her baby's father. He's bad news, right?
Clarke: He's nothin' but trouble.
Sally: Why didn't you tell me this before?
Clarke: 'Cause it's better that you are not involved.
Sally: Not involved?! Of course I'm involved. My daughter is involved. And I am the one who has been encouraging her to pursue this whole idea of adoption.
Clarke: No. Sally, I can't do it. I am not going to betray Darla's confidence. Besides, I get the feeling you're going to find out soon enough.
Macy: Our child is your baby? With her?
Darla: I'm sure it'll take some time to get used the idea, Mace.
Macy: You've had that time, haven't you? Weeks -- weeks of lying to me.
Thorne: Macy, I just got you back. I wasn't going to screw that up.
Macy: Oh, why would that screw anything up, Thorne? I mean, like you said, it's -- it's the perfect solution. I don't know why I didn't think about it myself. I mean, all I had to do was get the two of you in bed together, and my problems are solved.
Thorne: All right. All right, stop.
Macy: This is your brilliant solution, Thorne? Going to bed with my best friend? Getting her pregnant?
Darla: Oh, Macy, it was a mistake.
Macy: You're damn right it was a mistake! It was the biggest mistake you'll ever make! You let me go! You son of a bitch!
Thorne: Macy -- Macy, Macy, calm -- hey, listen to me! Hey! I love you. And I never meant to hurt you. But I thought you left me, Macy. That's all this was about. Honey -- there's a baby on the way. This doesn't have to be a disaster, Macy. Honey, it could be a miracle. This could be the answer to our prayers.
