Brooke: Oh, gosh, I still can't believe it.

Nick: That my father proposed to my mother?

Brooke: No, that they haven't seen each other since before you were born.

Nick: Oh, yes.

Brooke: It's just so --

Nick: Dysfunctional?

Brooke: Romantic. Finding each other after all these years. It's like a fairy tale.

Nick: Sort of like "beauty and the beast."

Brooke: If anybody could tame Massimo, Jackie could.

Nick: If you think about it, my life is just filled with irresistible women, isn't it?

Brooke: I don't think Massimo's gonna share that same opinion.

Nick: Oh, don't worry about it. He will be on good behavior tonight.

Brooke: I said that your mother could tame Massimo, not transform him.

Nick: Just trust me. He's engaged, new fiancée, new family. He has nothing to complain about.

Massimo: Oh, no. Brooke. He brought her.

Jackie: He told you he would.

Massimo: Yes, I know he did, but I was hoping maybe -- he knows the way I feel about her.

Jackie: Massimo -- I mean, she's very charming. And she's intelligent, she's successful. Those are qualities that you admire.

Massimo: I admire someone who succeeds in the boardroom, not in the bedroom.

Jackie: Really. I mean, that's just --

Massimo: Oh, Jacqueline, come on, now, I'm a man of conviction, and if I believe in something, I'm gonna say it.

Jackie: Well, I hope you enjoy listening to yourself, because I'm not gonna be around to listen to you. Brooke Logan is a very important part of our son's life. And if you want to be a part of his life, you'd better be polite to her, especially tonight.

[Knock on door]

Thorne: Hey. What are you doing here?

Bridget: I wanted to talk to you.

Thorne: Yeah? So what's up?

Bridget: I just ran into Darla. Have you seen her lately?

Thorne: I check in now and then. Why? Is something wrong?

Bridget: Thorne, she's lonely.

Thorne: I'm not ignoring her, okay? I just --

Bridget: She's carrying your child.

Thorne: Darla doesn't want my help.

Bridget: Well, maybe not, but you know what? The truth is she needs it.

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

Darla: Sally, please just listen to me.

Sally: Why? Another apology isn't gonna make any difference.

Darla: I know. But god, I wish it could. Sally, I have lost everything that matters to me. You, Macy, my family, my friends, a job that I loved.

Sally: You didn't lose those things, Darla. You gave them away for Thorne.

Darla: No, no, Sal, Thorne and I aren't together. He calls to check on the baby, he calls to check in on me every once in a while, but he does it purely out of obligation. He doesn't care about me any more than you do. I know you're not willing to forgive me now. But I hope someday soon that you will. Because until then, Sally -- look at me. I'm doing this all alone.

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

Jackie: Darling.

Nick: Well. The guests of honor have arrived.

Massimo: Dominick.

Nick: Here, mother.

Jackie: Thank you, honey.

Massimo: Thank you.

Brooke: Hello.

Jackie: We are so just so happy that you could join us. Aren't we, Massimo?

Massimo: Absolutely. Yes, please, a glass of red wine for the lovely lady. I will have a gin martini straight up. Make it a double, will you please?

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

Sally: So -- what am I supposed to do now? Congratulate you because you and Thorne are not a couple?

Darla: I just -- I just thought you should know. Being alone hasn't been that bad. You know, I've had a lot of time to think.

Sally: Well, maybe if you had thought before, you wouldn't be alone.

Darla: You're right. You always expected more out of me, Sal, didn't you? You were the only person who ever told me that I was smart. But I wasn't. Not at all.

Sally: Darla, if all you want to do is feel sorry for yourself, just go and do it somewhere else, all right?

Darla: No, no, please, don't go. That's not what I'm doing. That's not what I'm saying, please. But sally, I've been thinking a lot about something that Macy said to me. She said that you shouldn't take anything for granted, because you never know what might happen, and boy, was she right. Sally, honey, I took you for granted. You, Macy, Clarke, everything that was good in my life. And I fell for Thorne because I desperately wanted to be loved. But what I didn't realize is that I was surrounded by people who loved me. I just didn't realize it until they were all gone. Sal -- okay. Okay, I guess what I want to say here is that I hope you can find it in your heart to take me back. Because I love you so much, Sally. And I miss you.

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

Brooke: Nick told me about your engagement. Talk about fate. You two falling in love after all these years.

Nick: Brooke thinks it's romantic.

Massimo: How touching.

Brooke: Oh, perfect. Thank you. I ordered us a bottle of champagne to celebrate.

Jackie: Oh, you did? How thoughtful of you. Looks like Nicky is gonna be toasting us, though, with a beer.

Nick: Don't mind me.

Jackie: Darling, it's hard to ignore you in that shirt.

Nick: Well, you said you wanted the evening to be festive.

Brooke: Nick, you really should try a glass of champagne. Cafe Russe has one of the best selections.

Jackie: Oh, do you come here often?

Brooke: On special occasions.

Massimo: As many times as you've been married, you're probably one of their best customers.

[Clanking on glass]

Jackie: Oh, a toast.

Nick: Well, you can't really sail the ship until you christen it, right?

[Jackie laughs] so, to unexpected beginnings and happy endings. That's fine, thank you. And smooth sailing for everyone.

[Clanking]

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

Thorne: I know this has been hard on Darla.

Bridget: She's facing this alone, Thorne.

Thorne: I will be there when the baby's born, okay?

Bridget: Okay. And after?

Thorne: Bridget, I will do right by my child. I'm not going to abandon them.

Bridget: But you still love Macy?

Thorne: She won't even talk to me.

Bridget: Oh, god, I'm sorry.

Thorne: Well, it's my fault, you know? And I don't blame Darla for this. It just -- you know, Macy and I were finally going to have the life that we always wanted.

Bridget: I know how much Macy means to you. When you found her in Portofino and you were getting a second chance.

Thorne: Yeah.

Bridget: I'm really sorry it turned out like this.

Thorne: Yeah. So am I.

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

Nurse: The doctor will be with you in a moment.

Darla: Okay. Will she be the one doing the ultrasound?

Nurse: She can see another patient first, if you'd like to wait for your husband.

Darla: No, he's not my -- it's just me. There's no one else coming.

Nurse: Okay. Why don't you go ahead and change and I'll send her right in.

Darla: Okay. Thanks.

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

Bridget: So Macy won't talk to you?

Thorne: No. As far as she's concerned, there's nothing to talk about.

Bridget: What, that's it? It's over?

Thorne: Her best friend is pregnant with my child, Bridget.

Bridget: And there's no chance she'll change her mind?

Thorne: This isn't the first time that I've let her down. And I promised her that this time would be different, that it wouldn't be like the past. And that she wouldn't regret it.

Bridget: Look, Thorne, I know terrible you must feel about this.

Thorne: Well, it's my own damn fault.

Bridget: I just -- I don't want to see you taking it out on Darla, you know?

Thorne: I'm not, I'm not.

Bridget: Listen, you're dealing with your own loss. I understand that. But Darla's lost a lot, too.

Thorne: I know. I heard that Macy's not talking to her, either.

Bridget: No. No, and neither is Sally. I mean, she's lost her job, she's lost her friends. She's going to that ultrasound appointment all alone.

Thorne: That's today? She didn't tell me.

Bridget: You didn't ask. Thorne, you say you want to be there for her.

Thorne: I do, I do.

Bridget: Well, I hope that's true. Look, I'm sorry, I'm just not seeing it. And I'm afraid neither is Darla.

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

Jackie: Honestly, Nicky, I mean, the way you dressed, I mean --

Nick: Well, can we stop with the fashion comments, mother?

Jackie: I hope you're just gonna try a bit harder for the wedding.

Brooke: Have you made any plans yet?

Jackie: No. Massimo won't let me.

Massimo: Trust me, darling. It will surpass your expectations.

Nick: Why don't we just take my boat out into international waters and I'll -- I'll marry you myself.

[Laughter]

Massimo: That's very nice, but no thank you. This wedding is gonna be strictly first class. Nothing but the best for my bride.

Brooke: Are you working with a wedding planner?

Massimo: My assistant is interviewing candidates.

Brooke: I could give you a recommendation.

Massimo: I'm sure you've got them on retainer.

Jackie: You know? That might be very helpful.

Massimo: Thanks for the help, but no, no, I only need it for the execution, 'cause I know exactly what I want.

Jackie: Yeah, just as long as there are no doves and trumpets and --

Massimo: No, no, no, no, no, sweetheart, oh, yes. As a matter of fact, we are gonna have a horse-drawn carriage that will make the queen green with envy.

Brooke: Oh, I love horses. You know, Ridge and I used one in one of our weddings.

Jackie: It didn't work out?

Brooke: No, it was fine, actually. It was beautiful. It's just -- horses can be a little unpredictable.

Jackie: You know what? We could just elope to Vegas, for all I care. As long as I have you and Nicky.

Massimo: Hmm-mm. No, no.

Jackie: Everything will be perfect.

Massimo: No more flying. I lost you once, and I certainly am not gonna lose you again.

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

Doctor: You're still very early in your pregnancy, so the image on the monitor might not have that much clarity.

Darla: But I'll be able to see something?

Doctor: We'll try to get a clear picture.

Darla: Will it look like a baby?

Doctor: Yes. Most of your baby's growth happens in the first trimester. By now, he or she already has all of her organs, limbs, little fingers and toes.

Darla: Wow. Will we be able to tell the sex?

Doctor: Perhaps. Would you like to know?

Darla: I'm not sure. I don't know. All I know is I want it to be healthy.

Doctor: I won't say anything until you make up your mind. Okay, this is gonna be a little cold.

Darla: Okay.

Thorne: Excuse me. I'm looking for --

Darla: Thorne?

Thorne: Hey. I'm sorry I'm late.

Doctor: Is this the father?

Thorne: Yes.

Doctor: We're just about to start, and you just made it.

Thorne: Good. I'm glad.

Darla: How did you know?

Thorne: Bridget told me.

Darla: I didn't ask her to.

Thorne: I know. But I'm glad she did.

Darla: So am I.

Doctor: Okay, we're ready.

Thorne: Do you see something?

Darla: Is that the baby?

Doctor: Yes.

Thorne: Where?

Doctor: This is the head. The spine. A little foot. Toes, toes.

Darla: I can't believe this.

Thorne: That's our baby.

Darla: God.

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

Nick: I'm going to help get the coats.

Brooke: Congratulations, Jackie.

Jackie: Thank you.

Brooke: It's going to be a wonderful wedding.

Jackie: Yeah. Massimo is certainly excited, isn't he?

Brooke: I've never seen this side of him. Isn't he usually more --

Jackie: Hostile? Thoroughly unpleasant?

Brooke: He must really love you. Massimo Marone doesn't hold his tongue for anybody.

Jackie: No. It wasn't easy, though. Of course, the pinching under the table, I think that did the trick.

[Laughter] gosh. You know, it really has meant a lot to Nick, having you here tonight. And that means a lot to me.

Brooke: He's an incredible man.

Jackie: Who deserves an incredible woman. Nicky finally has everything that I've ever wanted for him, you know -- family, a father who he can depend on, that someone special to share it with.

Brooke: I want the same thing for my children.

Jackie: You know what a joy it is for me to see him happy. You, Brooke -- you're a big part of that. And I would be so proud to have you part of this family.

Massimo: Darling, are we ready to go?

Jackie: Yes. We are.

Nick: Well, I -- I had a good time.

Jackie: Well, me, too, and thank you, both of you, for coming.

Brooke: Thank you. This is definitely an evening that I will never forget.

Massimo: Neither will I.

Nick: You all right?

Brooke: Yeah.

Nick: Well, it wasn't a perfect date, but it wasn't horrible, was it?

Brooke: No. No, not at all.

Nick: Thanks for coming.

Concierge: Mr. Marone, thank you for coming.

Massimo: My pleasure.

Concierge: We'll see you again soon.
