Brooke: Bridget wouldn't listen to me, Eric.

Eric: Brooke, I know how this looks. But I talked to Ridge, and he didn't say anything to make me think they were romantically involved.

Brooke: But he didn't say that they weren't.

Nick: Hey there.

Brooke: Hi. Thanks.

Brooke: Nick, this is Eric Forrester, Bridget's father.

Nick: Nick Payne.

Eric: Nick? You're Jackie's son?

Brooke: You know his mother?

Eric: I do. We're friends. Nice to meet you.

Nick: Sorry about what happened to your daughter.

[Eric sighs]

Eric: Thank you. I'm gonna call Rick.

Nick: Where's Forrester?

Brooke: Ridge is in there with Bridget.

Nick: So what's going on?

Brooke: I don't know, Nick. I honestly don't know.

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

[Phone rings]

Rick: Hang on, okay? I'm gonna get the phone. Hello?

Eric: Rick?

Rick: Hey, dad, did you talk to Bridget?

Eric: Well, I'm afraid I have some bad news. Your sister's in the hospital.

Rick: What? What happened?

Eric: She took a pretty bad fall. She hit her head. But the doctor says she's gonna be fine.

Rick: Okay. I'll be right there.

Eric: No, son. No. I just wanted to let you know what was going on.

Amber: What is it?

Rick: Bridget's at the hospital.

Amber: What happened?

Rick: She fell and hit her head. Look, dad, are you sure she's gonna be okay?

Eric: Yes. Yes, I am. Your mother and Ridge are with her now.

Rick: Ridge?! What is he doing there?

Eric: It happened at his house.

Rick: He shouldn't be at the hospital, dad.

Eric: Bridget asked for him.

Rick: All right. You know what? That's it. I'm coming down there.

Eric: No, son, no.

Now, come on. Bridget needs her rest. All right? I'll call you if there's any change.

Rick: Fine. We'll be here. Damn it!

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

Bridget: This can't continue?

Ridge: You have to sever all ties with me and the kids.

Bridget: Why?

Ridge: Because now you're the one who's gotten hurt.

Bridget: It was an accident, Ridge.

Ridge: Oh, Bridget, it -- but that came about because of all this weirdness everybody's going through because you and I have gotten so close. You have no idea how hard this is for me to say to you right now.

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

Rick: I knew something like this was gonna happen.

Amber: What do you mean?

Rick: Bridget fell and hit her head at Ridge's house. And now he's at the hospital with her. Can you believe that?

Amber: Where else would he be?

Rick: He's the reason all this happened, Amber! God, I can just see him at the hospital now, hovering around her bed, doting on her in front of mom! You know, I don't care what dad said, I should go down there and throw him out myself.

Amber: If Bridget didn't want him to be there, she would have asked him to leave.

Rick: Bridget doesn't know what she wants. She's not thinking clearly.

Amber: And neither are you. I mean, come on, think about it. Bridget is not a little kid anymore. She is an adult and so is Ridge.

Rick: It's not healthy, Amber.

Amber: You know, that's what people used to say about us. But if they really care about each other --

Rick: They're half-brother and sister!

Amber: No, they're not. They're not. And I think everyone should just get over it.

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

Brooke: What am I doing here?

Nick: Well, I'd say you're -- you're here for Bridget. Right?

Brooke: Well, she's with Ridge. She's in there with the man that I'm supposed to marry.

Nick: Well, nobody's arguing that this isn't a strange situation.

Brooke: Well, I'm her mother, and she is hurt. And I'm the one who should be in there with her.

Nick: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Now, you've already been in there with her, right? I assume you spoke with her.

Brooke: She thinks that the family has turned against her and that we just don't understand her relationship with Ridge.

Nick: They're still involved?

Brooke: Well, obviously Ridge hasn't cut it off yet. She's been spending time at his house. I swear, I feel like I'm in an episode of "The Twilight Zone." This whole thing is so surreal.

Nick: Maybe it'd be a good idea if you left. Why don't you let me take you home, huh?

Brooke: No. Bridget might need me.

Nick: Well, if she needs you, she can call you. Why don't you let me take you home?

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

Ridge: This is one of the most difficult decisions I've ever had to make, Bridget. But I'm making it for you. Yeah, I do feel responsible.

Bridget: Ridge, we're both responsible. We've both been hurting the people we care about.

Ridge: Most of all, I've been hurting you. And I just don't wanna do that anymore.

Bridget: No, Ridge, you haven't --

Ridge: Look, you reached out to me and my kids in the time we needed you most. You were our lifeline, Bridget.

Bridget: Was that wrong?

Ridge: Not the way we felt about each other, no. But the way -- the damage it caused, yeah. I can't do that anymore. I'm not gonna do that to our -- to our family. Most of all, I'm not gonna do it to you.

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

Rick: Get over it? Ridge is taking advantage of my sister.

Amber: Your mom was the one who called off the wedding. She dumped Ridge. He has a right to move on.

Rick: Not with Bridget.

Amber: Why not? Just because you don't approve?

Rick: Because this relationship is wrong! And Bridget knows it better than anybody. And if you can't see that, then maybe you should stay out of it.

Amber: You're the one getting all bent out of shape.

Rick: I'm trying to protect my sister.

Amber: From what? You just said she knows what could happen.

Rick: This is my family, Amber.

Amber: Last time I looked, my driver's license said "Forrester," too.

Rick: You know what? I can't talk to you about this.

Amber: I am entitled to my opinion, Rick.

Rick: Yes, Amber, you are. But you know what? Keep it to yourself.

[Rick sighs]

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

Bridget: We never meant to hurt anybody.

Ridge: I know we didn't. But we sure as hell did.

Bridget: We're friends.

Ridge: Nobody else seems to see it that way.

Bridget: I guess, in the back of my mind, I knew this was gonna happen. I just hoped it wouldn't, you know? I hoped people would understand.

Ridge: I guess that was too much to ask.

Bridget: So this is it, huh? Ridge, you've done so much for me. You invited me into your house and into your family. You've shown me what -- you've shown me what my mom has to look forward to. She's a lucky woman.

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

Nick: Anybody home?

Brooke: Rick and Amber are here watching the kids. They're probably upstairs.

Nick: You want to let them know you're here.

Brooke: No. I don't really want to answer a lot of questions right now. Thanks for the ride, Nick. I'll be fine.

Nick: I'm not going anywhere.

Brooke: Please, I just -- I just need to be alone.

Nick: Well, when it's time, I'll go. It's just -- not time.

Bridget: The sense of belonging I felt in your home, with you and the kids -- that's what I'm gonna miss the most. But you're right. We do have to keep our distance.

Ridge: This doesn't feel fair at all.

Bridget: My mom's been in love with you for as long as I can remember. If it's you and I that are keeping you guys apart, that's not fair to either of you or to the kids. I mean, they're the ones that proposed to her. And that wasn't easy for them. It took them a long time to accept this marriage. But they did. And now it's my fault my mom called it off.

Ridge: Hey, I don't want you putting this on yourself. Okay?

Bridget: Ridge, you had my mom. You had a future with her. A future you wanted. I just hope you can still have it.

Ridge: Don't you worry about my future. You've got a future of your own to think about now and school friends and your medical career and -- I think once you put some distance between all of this, you're gonna see things real differently, okay? So -- you're gonna be okay.

Bridget: I know. We all will. Um -- tell the kids I love them. I'll never stop.

Ridge: I will.

Bridget: Good-bye.

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

Rick: Was I insensitive? When it comes to my family, I hate to see it compromised. I shouldn't have taken it out on you.

Amber: No, you shouldn't have.

Rick: I'm sorry.

Amber: Well, I guess that's why I fell in love with you.

Rick: My stubbornness?

Amber: No. Your proud, protective nature. You'd defend your mother to the end.

Rick: You know, she's not the only one.

Amber: Oh, yeah?

Rick: I think you know that.

Amber: Mm, I do. You know, I want what's best for your mother, too.

Rick: Yeah. Yeah. My question is, is it Ridge that's her soul mate or is it someone else?

Amber: She will make that decision, not you. Because you have already made yours.

Rick: Yeah.

Amber: Regrets?

Rick: Never.

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

Brooke: This isn't me, Nick. This isn't really who I am.

Nick: You don't have to tell me. I know you're not helpless. You're tough. A survivor. You'd have to be to put up with this as long as you have.

Brooke: I thought he ended it with her.

Nick: Well, he should have.

Brooke: Maybe if I'd just gone through with the wedding.

Nick: No. Then you'd just basically be hiding from the truth. Huh-uh. No, you handled this like a -- like a true sea captain. You stood up, said no. I admire that. You're stronger than you think you are. You'll get through this just fine. You know, that's a sign of a great woman, you know? Grace under fire.

Brooke: Oh, God. I don't feel very graceful right now.

Nick: Well, it takes time. You know? You just -- right now, you're sort of like -- you're like a ship without a rudder. You just don't know quite where you're going. But before you know it, there'll be a big gust of wind come along, and just fill your sails. But you just gotta keep on moving, mm?

Brooke: Thank you.

Nick: Mm. [In a Scottish accent] Feeling a bit better, are you? Huh?

Brooke: Yeah.

[In a Scottish accent]

Nick: Well, then. My work here is done. Good night, my fair lady.

Brooke: Good night.

[Doorbell rings]

Ridge: Logan, you are here. What happened? I came out of Bridget's hospital room, and you were gone. I looked everywhere. I thought I'd lost you.

Brooke: You have.

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

>> Announcer: Coming soon --

Ridge: Can you forgive me?

Brooke: Is this the part where I'm supposed to throw my arms around you and thank God that you're back?

>> Announcer: Brooke Logan has had enough.

Brooke: There's always been somebody else, Ridge, and I've always had to accept it. And I probably would have this time, if it hadn't have been my own daughter.

>> Announcer: But Ridge isn't giving up.

Ridge: I do love you, Brooke. You've got to know that. Please don't give up now.

Brooke: I know what I'm worth. And I know there's a man out there somewhere who would love me with all of his heart.

>> Announcer: Now, can he win her back in time?

Nick: I'll pick you up at 8:00.

>> Announcer: On "the bold and the beautiful."
