[Doorbell rings]

Thorne: Hey. I got here as soon as I could.

Rick: What do you mean?

Thorne: Your mother called, said to meet her here right away. You don't know why?

Amber: No, but I don't like the sound of it.

Rick: No, no, just hang on, don't jump to any conclusions.

Thorne: Rick, what's going on?

Rick: Well, Deacon demanded time with Eric.

Thorne: What, suddenly he's interested in being a father?

Amber: Yeah, Brooke thought it sounded strange, too, so she went over there to see what was going on.

Rick: Hey, Mom, what's up?

Amber: Why'd you call Thorne?

Brooke: Because I found out who was behind Deacon's newfound drive to become a father.

Thorne: Who?

Brooke: Macy.

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

Deacon: You like playing with these cars, huh?

Little Eric: Yeah, they're great.

Deacon: Yeah, they are, huh? Hey, why don't you see how fast you can make them go, and I'm gonna be right over here, okay?

Little Eric: Okay.

Deacon: Okay.

Macy: Did you guys have fun on the beach?

Deacon: Somehow I think we had a better time than you and Brooke did in here.

Macy: Actually, I enjoyed our little chat.

Deacon: Really? Did you tell her off?

Macy: Well, I set her straight. I told her in no uncertain terms that you had a right to see your son, and that as your friend, I had a right to see him as well, and there wasn't a damn thing she could do about it.

Deacon: I would have paid money to see that.

Macy: Well, I wish it hadn't happened today. I -- I wanted this day to be perfect for you and Eric.

Deacon: But it was. Macy, what's -- what's the matter?

Macy: Brooke's not finished. None of them are. They're not gonna make this easy for you, Deacon. They are gonna fight you with everything they've got.

Deacon: Well, you know what? Let 'em. Because what I got, well, that's worth fighting for.

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

[Screaming and laughing]

Bridget: Hey, you guys, stop it! It's no fair, I don't have any water. No, no, no. Stop it, stop it.

[Laughing]

Thomas: Bridget, here.

Bridget: Stop it. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Now you're in trouble.

Stephanie: Who wants lemonade? Oh! Oh, my --

Thomas: Score.

Bridget: Oh, my.

Phoebe: You got grandma.

Steffy: She's soaked.

Bridget: You guys, this isn't funny.

Thomas: It's hilarious. Did you see the look on her face?

Bridget: Yes, yes. Stephanie, I am so sorry. I am so sorry.

Stephanie: Oh, Bridget, it's no big deal, is it? It's just water.

[Screaming] okay, okay, okay! Truce! Truce! Truce! Truce!

Steffy: You always make us laugh, Aunt Bridget.

Thomas: Even when you're not trying.

Phoebe: We miss that.

Bridget: You guys, I miss you, too.

Steffy: Well, since your mom isn't gonna marry dad, can you come back and live with us again?

Bridget: Steffy -- I can't come back and live here.

Steffy: Why not?

Bridget: Well, for one thing, I think my mom and your dad are gonna get married.

Thomas: You do?

Bridget: Yeah. Yeah, they love each other. And they love you.

Phoebe: You still think Brooke will be a good mom?

Bridget: I think that she is gonna work very hard to be the best mom she can be.

Steffy: Will you still come and see us?

Bridget: You think you could keep me away?

Thomas: Nah, we're irresistible.

Bridget: Oh, you're irresistible? Are you really? I'll show you how irresistible you are.

[Laughter]

Thomas: Come on, you guys, we'd better go get changed so we can go to the Collins’.

Phoebe: I get to pick the movie this time.

Thomas: No Mary-Kate and Ashley.

Both: Aw!

Bridget: Don't. Don't start with me.

Stephanie: I was just watching, you know, you and the children and realizing how comfortable you are with each other, and -- I got to thinking.

Bridget: I'm sure I don't want to know what you were thinking.

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

Thorne: Brooke, are you sure?

Brooke: I saw it with my own eyes.

Amber: Saw what?

Brooke: I went over to Deacon's, and Macy was there.

Rick: Well, maybe Macy is that hot, new client that he's been bragging about.

Brooke: Trust me -- these two are much more than just client and agent.

Thorne: Macy and Deacon?

Brooke: Thorne, I'm sorry.

Thorne: What the hell is she thinking?

Brooke: I know the break-up was hard on both of you, but I really think it sent Macy over the edge.

Rick: What do you mean?

Brooke: She's angry. She wants somebody to blame. And she seems to trace all of her problems back to this family.

Amber: So that's what all of this is about? This is all about Macy getting revenge?

Rick: Amber --

Amber: No, no, no, this makes perfect sense now. You know, Deacon was never as interested in hanging out with his kids before Macy goes and puts some idea in his head.

Rick: Look, for all we know, Macy is just Deacon's client. Yes, maybe his client and his friend, but I find it hard to believe that Macy is pushing him to spend time with his children as a way to hurt us.

Brooke: Honey, I wouldn't put it past her. You know how much she hates me.

Rick: Look, mom, what you're accusing her of is pretty out there.

Brooke: I would give anything to be wrong. I just think we need to know everything that's going on, so that we could be prepared to fight it.

Amber: I agree.

Rick: Amber, where are you going?

Amber: I – I need to go check this out for myself.

Rick: That is not a good idea.

Amber: No, you know what, Rick? I will not be able to sleep tonight until I know what's going on with Macy and Deacon.

Rick: Fine. But I'm going with you.

Amber: Fine.

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

Deacon: Okay, I'm ready. You can let the compliments start flowing. Was this not one of the best meals you ever had? Come on.

Little Eric: You owe me a dollar.

Deacon: For what?

Little Eric: I ate all my broccoli.

Macy: A deal's a deal.

Deacon: Wait, wait a second. Whose side are you on?

Macy: I'm on his side.

Deacon: Obviously, I'm a little outnumbered here. All right, well -- I got a 20. That's it.

Little Eric: Cool.

Deacon: No, not cool. You need to let me get change.

Macy: Yeah, I'll tell you what -- until daddy gets change, why don't I sing you a song?

Little Eric: Yeah.

Macy: Yeah. Okay. I'll tell you what -- let's go over here. Come sit with me on the couch, all right? Nice and comfy. Come on. Ooh, you're a big boy. There you go. Okay, let's see. What can I sing? Hmm. Oh, I know what.

I know a place where dreams are born

and time is never planned it's not on any chart

you must find it with your heart to come home

to Neverland treasures when you stay there

precious more than gold once you've found your way there

you can never never grow old and that's my home where dreams are born

and time is never planned just think of lovely things

and your heart will fly on wings forever to never-neverland you owe me a dollar.

Deacon: I think I owe you a lot more than that. I'm gonna take him up to bed.

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

Bridget: I know what you're gonna say, and I don't want to hear it. I prefer to live in the real world, Stephanie. So should you.

Stephanie: Well, if the real world means that ridge and your mother end up together --

Bridget: It's gonna happen.

Stephanie: Not if I can help it.

Bridget: Well, you can't, so you should probably just accept it.

Stephanie: I thought she moved on.

Bridget: No, no, no, if you're talking about Nick --

Stephanie: Aren't they dating?

Bridget: Well, yeah, they've been on a couple dates, but it's not because she's over ridge. Dating Nick is easy for mom. It's uncomplicated.

Stephanie: Nothing where your mother is concerned is ever uncomplicated.

Bridget: And nick's mother likes mom.

Stephanie: So? They're birds of a feather.

Bridget: What is it with you? Do you want to see Ridge hurt? Because he will be if mom ends up with nick. Oh, or is getting your own way more important than Ridge's happiness?

Stephanie: I understand what makes my son happy, and it is not going to be in a relationship with your mother.

Bridget: Well, I don't agree with that. I think mom and Ridge should be together, because it's what they want.

Stephanie: He doesn't know what he wants. The proof of the pudding is he thought he had romantic feelings for you.

Bridget: He was confused.

Stephanie: Oh, I agree. He doesn't know whether he's up or he's down. And your mother doesn't help the situation. She keeps barging into his life with one crisis after another. I mean, that's how she hooked him in the first place, because he loves to be needed.

Bridget: Stephanie, they've been there for each other.

Stephanie: Your mother's never been there for anyone, including you. And she isn't going to be the right kind of mother and wife for ridge and these children. Her life is just one endless series of dramas after another.

Bridget: You're wrong.

Stephanie: Well, for Ridge's sake, I wish I were.

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

Macy: Parenting's hard work, huh?

Deacon: I had no idea. It's like a kid has this battery and it's all charged up and then it dies and boom, he's -- he's out. He's sound asleep.

Macy: Well, lucky for us, huh? You sorry you took this on?

Deacon: No. No, little D's great. And so are you.

Macy: Me? What did I do?

Deacon: Well, for starters, the way you stood up to Brooke.

Macy: This is more than just about Brooke. And she doesn't scare me.

Deacon: Somehow, I get the feeling, Macy, that nothing scares you. You know, all the same, it's just -- you really went to bat for me and my kid.

Macy: Well, that's what friends do.

Deacon: Friends, huh? I haven't had too many of those.

Macy: Well, you do now.

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

[Stephanie remembering]

Brooke: Ooh, that feels good. Honey, it's a little tight. It's tight. Oh, ow. Stephanie.

Stephanie: Quite a welcome home.

Brooke: Yeah, well, I thought you were --

Stephanie: Yes?

Brooke: Obviously, I thought you were somebody else.

Stephanie: Obviously. I can't imagine who.

Brooke: Oh, so you heard, right? Ridge and I are getting back together.

Stephanie: Oh. You stay from him. You stay away from him and his family, or so help me, Brooke --

Brooke: Or what, Stephanie? What are you gonna do? Nothing. Because Ridge wants me and I want him and there's really nothing that you can do about it.

Stephanie: Oh, there's nothing that I can do about it, hmm? That's what it is, eh? I think you forget something. There's one important thing that stands between you and Ridge getting back together. Me. Now, we've played this game for a long time. A long time. I've beaten you every single time, and I'm going to beat you this time.

Brooke: Oh, Stephanie, your days of controlling me are over. Because I've changed. You know, I'm not fighting for your acceptance anymore, because it really doesn't matter to me. The only thing that matters to me is Ridge. And I'm going to have him. And there's nothing that anybody can do about it, even you.

Thomas: We're all ready to go. So who's gonna take us to Justin and Katie's house?

Stephanie: Well, that's a very good question.

Bridget: I am.

Stephanie: Oh, you are? Okay.

Bridget: You guys ready?

Phoebe: Yeah.

Bridget: Okay.

Phoebe: Got the movies right here.

Bridget: Cool.

Thomas: There better not be any baby stuff in there.

Stephanie: Oh, get over it. Listen, Catherine is gonna pick you up later, though. So I want you to mind your manners.

Thomas: We will.

Bridget: All right, I'm parked around back. Come on.

Stephanie: Have a good time.

Thomas: Bye, grandma.

Stephanie: Okay.

Bridget: See you back at the house.

Stephanie: Okay.

Bridget: Okay.

[Doorbell rings]

Brooke: Oh, Stephanie. Where's Ridge?

Stephanie: He's not here.

Brooke: Well, where is he? I really need to talk to him.

Stephanie: Why? Is there another crisis in your life?

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

Deacon: You know, if little d wasn't upstairs asleep -- I don't know.

[Deacon laughs] Really?

Macy: Really.

Rick: Amber, I don't think this is such a good idea.

Amber: I have to see what's going on.

Macy: You know, this really does feel like home, being here with you and your son.

Deacon: Yeah. It does. It feels -- like home.

Little Eric: Daddy? Daddy?

Deacon: Hey, buddy, what's -- what's goin' on?

Little Eric: I couldn't sleep. Could you sing it again, cuckoo?

Macy: I can't resist that, huh? Okay, okay.

Amber: Oh, my god, Macy is cuckoo.

Macy: Yeah.

I know a place where dreams are born and time is never planned

it's not on any chart you must find it with your heart to come home to neverland

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

Brooke: I didn't come here to talk to you, Stephanie.

Stephanie: I gather that. What crisis do you want Ridge to rescue you from now? An unexpected pregnancy? Or maybe an old lover stalking you?

Brooke: Oh, stop it.

Stephanie: No, you stop it. Stop dragging him through this garbage heap that you call your life.

Brooke: He wants to be with me.

Stephanie: He wants to be needed. And god knows you've provided enough opportunity.

Brooke: You know what I need? I need you to stay the hell out of my life.

Stephanie: What about what he needs?

Brooke: He needs me.

Stephanie: Oh, please.

Brooke: He asked me to marry him, Stephanie.

Stephanie: And you said no.

Brooke: I said not yet.

Stephanie: What the hell does that mean? Oh, what, wait -- I know you. I know what that means. That's part of your "playing hard to get" game, isn't it?

Brooke: When are you gonna get it through your thick noggin? Ridge and I love each other, and if we decide that we want to get married now, or if we decide we want to get married next year, or if we want to stand on our heads in the rain, we will do that, and there's nothing you can do to stop us.

Stephanie: Huh!
