Nick: How's she doing?

Brooke: She's fine.

Nick: Oh, good. Still has all ten fingers and ten toes?

Brooke: All right, joke. But it wasn't very funny to me.

Nick: I understand. You were legitimately concerned about your daughter. I know.

Brooke: Yes. I had every right to be.

Nick: Yeah. So Deacon did his job. He brought her back safe and sound. And now -- now you can relax, enjoy the afternoon. What do you say?

Brooke: And so can you.

Nick: Me? Come on, I've been having the time of my life.

Brooke: We were suppose to spend the day together.

Nick: Well, the day's not over, is it? You know, I was actually thinking while you were up there with Hope -- what do you say we get a pitcher of margaritas made and slide into the pool quietly so she can just relax? Hmm?

Brooke: Well, if we go swimming, I'll have to have Marta watch Hope.

Nick: Oh, come on, I finally get you to myself. I was hoping it would be more of a private pool party.

Brooke: Hmm? What did you have in mind?

Nick: Well, I don't know. I'm sure if we put our heads together, we can come up with something.

Thomas: I'm getting in first!

Steffy: No, I am!

Thomas: No, I am.

Steffy: No, I am.

Thomas: I'm so getting in --

Ridge: Okay, what did I say about running in the pool?! What did --

Brooke: Ridge -- what are you doing here?

Ridge: Oh, hello, Logan.

Thomas: Hi, Brooke.

Brooke: Hi, Thomas.

Phoebe: Can we get in?

Ridge: The kids wanted to go swimming, and our pool's being serviced. So I didn't think you'd mind.

[Brooke scoffs]

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

Bridget: Wow, this is great, Stephanie. Thanks for having me.

Stephanie: Oh, you're more than welcome. I just -- I haven't seen you for awhile. I wanted to know how things are going and all that.

Bridget: I'm doing much better, thank you.

Stephanie: No more headaches?

Bridget: Good as new.

[Stephanie chuckles]

Stephanie: Well, you had me worried there for awhile.

Bridget: Why do I get the feeling you're talking about more than my concussion?

Stephanie: Oh, let's not go there.

Bridget: Really? You don't wanna talk to me about ridge?

Stephanie: Is there any reason that I should?

Bridget: No.

Stephanie: Good. Then let's not. Let's talk about you. What are you gonna do this summer?

Bridget: Oh, you know, just classes. The accelerated med program goes year round.

Stephanie: Oh, that's right. So there's no big changes on the horizon then?

Bridget: I think it's safe to say, I've gone through enough changes this year to last me a lifetime.

Stephanie: I think so, too. You could use a little stability.

Bridget: Yeah, I could.

Stephanie: You don't get that really living over the insomnia. And I -- I know, I know. It's very important for you to prove to the family that you can make it on your own, so to speak. But I've been thinking that what happened with you and Ridge -- well, weren't you really sort of trying to fill a void in your life?

Bridget: What -- what kind of a void?

Stephanie: Well, family's always been very important to you, Bridget. Isn't that really what you wanted with Ridge?

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

Massimo: I'll tell you what. You get us some glasses, and I will do the honors.

Jackie: Wait.

Massimo: Something wrong?

Jackie: No. Yes. No. No, it's -- it's perfect. It's too perfect.

Massimo: There's no such thing. You still don't trust me, hmm?

Jackie: It's -- it's not that. It's just -- I don't know. You showing up here with the wine and remembering the restaurant -- it's a little overwhelming.

[Massimo sighs]

Massimo: It's supposed to be. Jacqueline, don't tell me that you have forgotten what it's like to be swept off your feet.

Jackie: So that's why you came here? To sweep me off my feet? I thought you wanted to apologize.

Massimo: You accept my apology, we can move onto more pleasant things.

Jackie: Like the wine?

Massimo: For starters.

Jackie: Uh-huh. Hoping to loosen me up, are you?

Massimo: Oh, Jacqueline, you're a beautiful, sophisticated woman. You don't need wine to loosen you up. You need to be appreciated.

Jackie: Right. And you're just the man to do that?

Massimo: Well, I'm just asking for the chance. That's what I'm doing.

Jackie: Are you sure that you wouldn't rather be wining and dining a 25-year-old?

Massimo: Choosing a Chablis over a ruby, heady cabernet?

Jackie: I'm sure you have.

Massimo: Yes. But there comes a time when one wants to experience the complexity and surprise of an elegant woman.

Jackie: Oh, Massimo -- that is just such a wonderful sentiment. But comparing me to an old bottle of wine has firmly established my feet back on the ground.

Massimo: Jacqueline -- then come with me. I promise to remedy that.

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

Bridget: Stephanie, I'm not spending time with Ridge anymore.

Stephanie: I know that.

Bridget: We haven't seen each other since I got out of the hospital.

Stephanie: So how are you spending your time?

Bridget: I'm working. I'm working at the hospital and the coffee shop.

Stephanie: And seeing friends?

Bridget: Some.

Stephanie: Been to see your brother?

Bridget: I've been busy.

Stephanie: I'm not trying to give you a hard time. I'm just concerned.

Bridget: What, am I not being social enough now?

Stephanie: You've cut yourself off from Ridge and the children. I don't want you to cut yourself off from the rest of the family. Okay? After that terrible falling out with your mother, you lost your bearings. I don't want that to happen to you again.

Bridget: It's not going to. So if that's why you asked me over here --

Stephanie: I didn't ask you over here for that. I have something else I want to talk to you about. I have a proposal to make.

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

Ridge: Oh, we're interrupting. I guess I should've called, huh? I didn't think it would be a problem. But I -- I told the kids you'd want to see them, though.

Brooke: Oh, I do. I do. I miss them very much.

Ridge: They miss you, too. But if this is a bad time --

Brooke: No. No, it's fine.

Thomas: Hey, dad, you wanna play marco polo?

Ridge: Yeah.

Steffy: Brooke, do you wanna play?

Nick: Why don't we get the young one inside? It's a little loud out here, don't you think?

Brooke: Hope's trying to sleep right over there.

Ridge: Oh. You hear that guys. Let's keep it down a little bit, okay?

Brooke: But you know what? Nick's probably right. Maybe I should take hope inside. Who would like to go in for a popsicle?

Phoebe: Me!

Thomas: I do.

Brooke: Okay. Grab your towels. I'll be right back. Oh, yes, yes. You boys play nice now. Come on, let's go.

Thomas: I want a cherry flavor.

Steffy: No, I want a cherry one.

Phoebe: I want a chocolate one.

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

Bridget: What are you gonna offer me this time, Stephanie? An internship on the space station?

Stephanie: I probably could arrange that. But I was thinking of you moving a little closer. Beverly Hills.

Bridget: Not closer to the family?

Stephanie: You need a support system.

Bridget: I have one.

Stephanie: It doesn't do any good if you don't use it.

Bridget: So you wouldn't be opposed to me living closer to Ridge?

Stephanie: Well, in retrospect, I -- I can see how this could have all come down.

Bridget: I wish to god it hadn't.

Stephanie: Maybe it wouldn't have if you'd had someone to talk to. I mean, your whole life, all you ever heard was your mother referring to ridge as the romantic ideal. And you watched her put him above everyone else and everything else.

Bridget: Don't blame her for this. This wasn't her fault.

Stephanie: You and he were thrown together at probably the most vulnerable point in both of your lives.

Bridget: I just wanted to help him.

Stephanie: Yes. And I think your mother's knight in shining armor just wanted to help you.

Bridget: Stephanie, it wasn't like that.

Stephanie: You never thought of him that way? You watched him come to her rescue so many times. And here he was coming to your rescue. And you were grateful.

Bridget: Yeah. It felt good to be taken care of.

Stephanie: Of course, it did. That was a rarity for you when you were growing up. So I can understand how you could mistake his offer of comfort and support for something else.

Bridget: I guess I really didn't get a lot of that home.

Stephanie: But you could if you would like to move in here with me.

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

Nick: Some move here, dressmaker. Not very subtle.

Ridge: The kids wanted to go swimming.

Nick: Don't you belong to a country club or something?

Ridge: Well, they also wanted to see Brooke.

Nick: So did you, didn't you? But I bet you figured you couldn't get through the door without those kids with you.

Ridge: You don't have a clue what my relationship is with Brooke.

Nick: I don't. I just don't see the attraction.

[Ridge laughs]

Ridge: Well, I'll tell you. Brooke and I were going to be married. And, eventually, we will be. Because I don't think she's gonna turn her back on everything we've meant to each other.

Nick: I don't know, Forrester, she may surprise you. What's the point of her looking backwards when she has so much to look forward to?

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

Karen: Good afternoon, Mr. Marone.

Massimo: Good to see you, Karen.

Karen: Have a good flight.

Jackie: Oh, Massimo -- Massimo, you can't be serious. This is -- this is a private plane.

Massimo: You want to be swept off your feet, I guarantee that your feet will not touch the ground for the rest of the day.

Jackie: We're just gonna fly around?

Massimo: Or we could stick to my original plan.

Jackie: Which was?

Massimo: I want to take you to dinner. I know this intimate little bistro which is near the wharf in san Francisco.

Pilot: Excuse me, Mr. Marone?

Massimo: Yes, captain?

Pilot: We've been cleared for takeoff. Will there be any changes to your flight plan today?

Massimo: It's up to the lady.

Pilot: San Francisco, ma'am?

Jackie: Oh, hell, why not?

Pilot: Excellent. Enjoy your flight.

Massimo: Your wish is my command.

[Jackie laughs]

Jackie: Oh, Massimo Marone, you're out of your mind.

Massimo: You used to like that.

Jackie: Well, I didn't say I didn't.

Massimo: So, you approve of the arrangements?

Jackie: It's not exactly a spontaneous road trip to the country, but --

Massimo: Well, it is a little early for dinner. Perhaps we could stop off at Napa, have a nice glass of wine and take a little stroll around the vineyard. And then maybe -- just maybe, we can find a secluded spot overlooking the valley and toast our auspicious reunion.

Jackie: We could really do that, couldn't we?

Massimo: I could do anything you want. What?

Jackie: I just -- I can't believe that we're actually sharing this moment, that I'm with you.

Massimo: I can make it better.

Jackie: I'm sorry. I'm sorry, Massimo. I'm just -- not quite ready for that.

Massimo: It's all right. Not to worry. You are worth waiting for.

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

Bridget: You want me to live here?

Stephanie: Well, if you'd like to.

Bridget: You want to keep an eye on me, right?

Stephanie: No. If you're concerned about privacy, take the guest house.

Bridget: Did dad put you up to this?

Stephanie: He doesn't know anything about it.

Bridget: So, you're serious about this?

Stephanie: I think we could both use some company.

Bridget: Okay, you don't have to make it look like I'm doing some kind of a huge favor here.

Stephanie: You will be.

Bridget: Ridge and I are gonna stay away form each other. You don't have to worry about.

Stephanie: I know. I'm lonely. This isn't exactly how I pictured this all coming about. I thought that there would lots of family gatherings, birthdays, holidays, Christmas, kids here all the time. But with Eric gone, it's pretty empty.

Bridget: I know what you mean. This isn't exactly how I thought my life was going to be either.

Stephanie: You did the right thing.

Bridget: It doesn't hurt to hear it. You know, I could probably use all the support I can get right now. So if you're serious about wanting a roommate --

Stephanie: You'll do it?

Bridget: What's a family for if you can't depend on each other?

Stephanie: Yes. Clink-a-dink.

[Both laugh]

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

ridge: So you think you can offer Brooke more than I can, huh?

Nick: It's not about quantity, Forrester. It's about quality.

Ridge: Oh, right, right, right. So floating around a little dinghy is gonna be a lot more rewarding for her than raising a family with me, huh?

Nick: You're just never gonna see it, are you?!

Ridge: See what?

Nick: The possibility that Brooke could be happy with somebody other than you.

Ridge: Oh, she's enjoying herself all right. Oh, yeah. You know, hanging out with a guy she has no attachment to, no strings, no commitment. And after everything she and I've been though the last while, I can see where it would be a bit of a relief really. Yeah. But trust me, it's not gonna be long before the novelty wears off.

Nick: Oh, I got you. 'Cause you've seen this act before, right?

Ridge: Yeah.

Nick: But don't you think the novelty of this cat and mouse game you two have been playing for years may be wearing off, too? Oh, that was quick.

Brooke: Steffy wants her jacket.

Ridge: How are the kids?

Brooke: They're watching a DVD, and they're fine.

Ridge: Good.

Brooke: Is everything all right?

Nick: Peachy.

Ridge: Ducky.

Nick: Yeah. I gotta get going.

Brooke: All right. Well, thanks for coming over. Sorry for all the distractions.

Nick: Oh, it's all right. Maybe we'll make it up with a dinner down the road, huh?

Brooke: I'd like that.

Nick: Okay.

Brooke: Well, I better get this upstairs.

Nick: Forrester, I know you think this is a repeat performance, you've seen this before. But I'm the real deal, pal. You better use your kids, use your history and everything you've got. You're gonna need it.
