Bridget: Nick and Ridge are brothers?

Brooke: Half-brothers. Nobody knew except for Jackie.

Bridget: And she told Massimo on the plane.

Brooke: In case she didn't make it.

Bridget: Oh, my god.

Brooke: I know. It's gonna take a while for everybody to get used to this idea. But Nick seems to be doing okay.

Bridget: Yeah, he grew up without a father, and now all of a sudden he has one.

Brooke: Well, it's a little more complicated than that, but you're right. He does want a relationship with Massimo.

Bridget: You've talked about this?

Brooke: He told me about it.

Bridget: You guys have gotten pretty close, huh?

Brooke: Well, he's a very intriguing man.

Bridget: What are you doing? Mom? What's going on between you and Nick?

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

Jackie: Eric. Um -- I don't think that I'm ready for this.

Eric: Of course. You just got out of the hospital.

Jackie: Yes. I am -- I'm feeling a bit tired.

Eric: Then you should rest. Relax. Okay? I'll take care of you. I'm yours for the rest of the day.

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

Thomas: Hey, dad? You said you wanted to talk to us about something?

Ridge: Yeah. Have a seat. Just want to tell you some things.

Thomas: Is something wrong?

Ridge: No, no, actually, I have something pretty amazing to tell you.

Thomas: About Brooke?

Ridge: No, it's about me. But it is going to affect our whole family. You know how some of your friends at school have more than one dad?

Phoebe: 'Cause they're divorced.

Steffy: Or someone died.

Ridge: Right, right. Well, sometimes there are other reasons, too. All my life, I thought that your grandpa Eric was my only dad. He's the one that raised me, that took care of me. And he did a great job. But I have another dad as well.

Thomas: Another dad?

Ridge: A biological dad that I didn't know I had until recently.

Steffy: You didn't know him?

Ridge: Well, I didn't know he was my dad. But I knew him. I know him. And you guys know him too.

Thomas: Who?

Ridge: It's Massimo.

Phoebe: Mojo?

Thomas: Mojo is your dad?

Ridge: Yeah. And that -- that makes him your grandpa, as well. I know that -- I know this is kind of confusing.

Steffy: He always seemed like a grandpa.

Ridge: He cares about you all very, very much.

Phoebe: He gave us neat presents.

Ridge: Yeah. Hey, Thomas? How you doin' with all this?

Thomas: I like Mojo a lot. But what about grandpa Eric?

Ridge: Grandpa Eric is still gonna be your grandpa, just like grandpa Jack. That doesn't change.

Steffy: Now we have three grandpas instead of two.

Ridge: That's right, sweetheart. That's right. I mean, what could be better than that, huh?

Thomas: I have another question.

Ridge: Ask me anything you want.

Thomas: I know what biological means. You have his genes and everything. But does that make your last name Marone?

Ridge: It could if I wanted it to be. But I don't have to change my name, and neither do you guys.

Thomas: But what are you really? A Forrester or a Marone?

Ridge: I guess in truth, I'm a little of both.

Steffy: That's cool!

Ridge: I agree. That is very cool.

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

Jackie: You don't have to watch over me, you know. I mean, the doctor says I'm absolutely fine.

Eric: Yeah, but you do need your rest. Right?

Jackie: Yeah, so I think I'm just gonna sleep the rest of the day.

Eric: Yeah, sure. But I don't -- I don't mind staying. Why don't I stay?

Jackie: That is so sweet of you, but it's not necessary.

Eric: Okay. I have my cell phone with me, so if you need me, call me, all right?

Jackie: I will, I will.

Eric: Okay.

Jackie: You've been very kind. And I just want you to know how much I appreciate that. You're a very special man.

Eric: Thank you. So I'm gonna go now. And I'll see you later?

Jackie: Mm-hmm.

Eric: Okay.

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

[Door closes]

Thomas: Hey, Dad?

Ridge: Yeah, sport, what's goin' on?

Thomas: You're going out with Brooke tonight?

Ridge: That's right, I am.

Thomas: Does she know that Massimo's your father?

Ridge: Yeah, she does.

Thomas: What about grandpa Eric?

Ridge: It's not really a secret, Thomas. I -- wanted to make sure that the rest of the family knew and was okay with all this, so that they could help you and the girls if you needed it.

Thomas: So you told Bridget that Massimo is your dad?

Ridge: Actually, Bridget knew before I did. Massimo had asked her not to tell me so that he could tell me himself.

Thomas: Is that why she doesn't come over here anymore?

Ridge: What?

Thomas: Did you guys get in a fight because she didn't tell you?

Ridge: Oh, Thomas, no, no, no, it's not like that at all.

Thomas: She's not my real aunt, is she? Is that why she isn't coming over? Doesn't she care about us anymore?

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

Brooke: I've been helping Nick through a tough time.

Bridget: So you're just friends? Mom?

Brooke: We've been out a few times.

Bridget: So you're dating?

Brooke: We enjoy each other's company.

Bridget: Is it romantic?

Brooke: We've kissed.

Bridget: And now you're going out with him tonight?

Brooke: Actually, I'm going out with Ridge tonight.

Bridget: What? You're dating both of them?

Brooke: Well, honey, it's not a secret. They both know what's going on.

Bridget: I don't. Mom, I thought you and Ridge would have worked things out by now.

Brooke: I'm not saying that we won't.

Bridget: Okay, so in the meantime, you're gonna play the field?

Brooke: I'm just weighing all my options.

Bridget: Mom, you're still in love with Ridge.

Brooke: Yes, I am, honey. But I've spent some nice time with Nick. It's been very special.

Bridget: You don't even know him.

Brooke: I'm getting to know him. And he's getting to know me. Without all that baggage that I've been lugging around for years.

Bridget: Your history with Ridge?

Brooke: And Eric and Thorne and Stephanie. He's been a breath of fresh air. I can't tell you how good that feels.

Bridget: So this is serious?

Brooke: No. I'm taking it slow. I'm not going to jump into anything with either one of them.

Bridget: Well, I guess that's good for you. But what about Ridge's kids, mom? Have you stopped to think about how confusing this could be for them?

Brooke: Honey, they're fine. You've seen them.

Bridget: No, I haven't, actually. I haven't seen them. Mom, this is your time. You and Ridge should be moving forward. And now you're telling me you're not even sure that's what you want?

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

Ridge: Oh, Thomas, no, of course Bridget cares about you very much.

Thomas: Then where is she?

Ridge: She's been busy.

Thomas: She was never too busy to come and see us before.

Ridge: Hey. You know what? I miss her, too. I promise you, she's not staying away because she's trying to hurt you at all.

Thomas: So she's not angry?

Ridge: No, she's not angry at all.

Thomas: But I was right. She's not my real aunt, is she?

Ridge: You're not related by blood, no. But that doesn't mean she's gonna stop loving you. And the same thing goes for grandpa Eric and uncle Rick. Your family is your family, no matter what.

Thomas: Even if they're not biological?

Ridge: Think of it this way -- wasn't Tarzan's family always there for him?

Thomas: Dad, they were animals. And he was a guy.

Ridge: Well, okay, then they're really, really not related, are they? But that doesn't make them any less of a family. A strong family, too, just like yours.

Thomas: Bridget's not a monkey.

Ridge: Really? Well, you could have fooled me. What about me? You know what they call these things, don't you?

Thomas: A monkey suit?

Ridge: There you go. There's your proof. Seriously, I don't want you worrying about who's related to who. You've got a very, very strong family, Thomas. Think of it this way -- all we're doing is adding Massimo to the list. Do you understand all this?

Thomas: I think so.

Ridge: Yeah?

Thomas: I just wish Bridget would come back.

Ridge: I know. You got to give these things time. Sometimes, the best way to show someone you really love them is to be patient. Just be patient.

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

Brooke: Don't get me wrong, Bridget. I want to be there for those kids.

Bridget: So what's stopping you?

Brooke: I'm stopping myself for a change.

Bridget: I don't understand.

Brooke: How many times have I closed my eyes and held my breath and jumped into a relationship, hoping for the best? It doesn't really work out that way.

Bridget: Mom, this is Ridge we're talking about.

Brooke: I know. And I'm just trying to do the right thing.

Bridget: You're seeing another man.

Brooke: This isn't about Nick or Ridge. This is about me and what I want and what I need to feel secure.

Bridget: You know what? This is gonna affect the kids' security, too. Mom, come on, they proposed to you. They thought you were gonna marry their father.

Brooke: I just want to know what I'm doing. I want to be sure before I get their hopes up.

Bridget: I thought you were sure.

Brooke: I thought so, too.

Bridget: I'm sorry. Mom, I don't get this. I mean, I don't get it. What was the point of everything we just went through if it wasn't so you and Ridge could be together?

Bridget: Honey, I need to know I'm making the right decision. And I want to do what's right for Ridge and for myself and for our children. And I thought you, of all people, would appreciate that.

Bridget: I do.

Brooke: Well, then, why are you so upset?

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

Massimo: Jackie, what are you doing here?

Jackie: We have to talk.

Massimo: You just got out of the hospital. You should be home, resting.

Jackie: I know, I know, I know. But I want to explain.

Massimo: That's not necessary.

Jackie: You must be so hurt. You know, seeing me with another man.

Massimo: Eric Forrester.

Jackie: He's a friend.

Massimo: He's married.

Jackie: He's been very supportive.

Massimo: Ah.

Jackie: Massimo, it's not what you think, honestly. I mean, I just, I didn't expect him to kiss me.

Massimo: I don't want to hear it. All I know is that years ago, I let pride keep me from having a life with you. And I'll be damned if I'm gonna let that happen again.

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

Bridget: Look, Mom, nobody wants you to do anything you're not ready for.

Brooke: I won't.

Bridget: But Ridge is ready. He wants to move forward.

Brooke: And we will -- slowly.

Bridget: Does he know you and Nick have kissed?

Brooke: I'm not going to lie to him.

Bridget: I can't believe you're doing this.

Brooke: What?

Bridget: Playing these two men against each other, mom.

Brooke: Honey, I'm not. But I have to admit, it is a different position for me. It's nice being pursued for once. Oh, so you don't approve?

Bridget: It's none of my business.

Brooke: I have to ask, is it Ridge you're worried about, or is it yourself?

Bridget: Look, mom, I don't want to see you or Ridge hurt any more than you already have been. I mean that. You know, he's gonna be here any second now, so I gotta go. Have fun tonight.

Brooke: Thanks. I will.

Ridge: Hey.

Bridget: Hi. Wow. Look at you. You guys are hitting the town, huh?

Ridge: That's the plan. Is she ready?

Bridget: Almost. She told me about you and Nick.

Ridge: Oh, yeah. Stranger than fiction.

Bridget: Brothers, huh?

Ridge: We couldn't have less in common.

Bridget: You might have more in common than you think.

Ridge: Hey, Logan.

Brooke: Hey.

Ridge: Hey, there. You know what? You look absolutely delicious.

Brooke: Oh, thank you. So do you.

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

Massimo: We could be a family.

Jackie: We are a family, Massimo. We are. We're Nicky's parents.

Massimo: But what are we to each other?

Jackie: Are you asking me if I'm involved with Eric?

Massimo: I won't share you, Jackie. Not with Eric, not with any other man. I can't.

Jackie: I wouldn't ask you to. Massimo --

Massimo: You're not gonna spend another night with that man.

Jackie: But -- but it's where I live.

Massimo: Not anymore.

Jackie: You're jealous.

Massimo: I'm in love. I didn't know what I was waiting for. Now I do. I came out to your house this afternoon to propose to you. And that's exactly what I'm going to do. Please sit down. Jacqueline Payne, will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?
