Happy New Year's Eve!

By Boo
Proofread by Becky

Darla: Happy New Year's, Sal.

Sally: Oh, Darla. How sweet. Thank you, honey.

Darla: Sure.

Thorne: We took a chance that you'd be home.

Sally: Well, that was a pretty safe bet, wasn't it?

[Sally laughs] Listen, actually, I know that you probably both thought that I was sitting at home here crying into very large glasses of self-pity, but it's not true. Actually, I was getting ready to watch some football games.

Darla: Oh, okay.

Sally: Now, what do you say we pop this baby, huh? And start makin' some new year's resolutions.

Darla: Oh, I got one. I'd like to pop this baby right on out of me right now, let me tell you.

Sally: Oh, honey, I'm sorry. Darling, you want to sit down?

Darla: Oh, I thought you'd never ask.

Thorne: Let me help you.

Sally: Oh, there you go.

Darla: I don't know what hurts worse. My back or my feet.

Sally: Oh, darling, darling, this is nothing. This is a slap and a tickle compared to what you got coming.

Darla: Thank you.

Thorne: Uh, Sally, Darla's a little nervous about that.

Sally: Oh, don't be nervous, sweetheart. Having a baby is the most natural thing in the world.

Darla: Yeah, tornadoes and earthquakes are natural, too.

Sally: Stop that. You listen to me. You listen to me. I know all about birthin' babies, miss scarlet. I've had two of my own, and I am gonna be your coach.

Darla: Really, you will?

Sally: Yes, of course, of course. It is no big deal, I'm telling you. It's very simple. You just relax, breathe deeply, listen to what your doctor tells you, don't forget all of those classes that you took in Lamaze, and it's going to be perfect.

Darla: Okay, just stay calm, breathe, relax.

Sally: That's it. It's as simple as that.

Darla: Oh, geez, I hope you're right. Ew, I think my water just broke.

Sally: What?!


Stephanie: Is everything all right?

Eric: I'm not in a very festive mood.

Stephanie: Well, then you came to the right place. Would you like a drink?

Eric: No, no. No, thanks.

Stephanie: Actually, I'm glad you came over. I -- I have to talk to you about Ridge.

Eric: Ridge came by the office today.

Stephanie: He tell you about the trip?

Eric: Who told you?

Stephanie: Brooke.

Eric: Was she excited about it?

Stephanie: It was her idea.

Eric: Ridge thinks that she's upset.

Stephanie: Eric, there's something I have to tell you.

Eric: Oh, no. Ridge was right.

Stephanie: She's made her decision.

Eric: It's over. She's leaving him. She's ending the marriage.


Ridge: Just gorgeous.

Brooke: Isn't it?

Ridge: I wasn't talking about outside.

Brooke: Well, then you weren't looking.

Ridge: Oh, I've got plenty of beauty to look at right here inside.

Brooke: Well, go ahead. Just look.

Ridge: It's really coming down.

Brooke: It's like a curtain. Like after a fashion show. The crowd is going wild out front. Backstage it's all quiet. Months of hard work. Hours of chaos. The curtain comes down, and suddenly it's over.

Ridge: I kind of like that.

Brooke: You do?

Ridge: Yeah. That time before the reviews, before you have to focus on the next collection. When you have nothing to do but just sit back and enjoy your achievement.

Brooke: Well, that's what I wanna do. Can we do that? Just enjoy this moment and not think about the future?

Ridge: I know you're worried about the baby and that Nick won't let me adopt him, but --

Brooke: Ridge. Let's just enjoy what we have right now, right this minute.

Ridge: Hey, Logan, what's going on with you?


Eric: Why, Stephanie? Why is she leaving him now? After everything they've been through?

Stephanie: She doesn't want to put him through any more of this. Listen, it's not a knee-jerk reaction on her part. She's thought the decision through very carefully.

Eric: Sure, ever since you and Massimo have been ramming the idea down her throat.

Stephanie: No.

Eric: Oh, come on, Stephanie. This is what you wanted all along. You must be thrilled.

Stephanie: I'm not. I do think this is the best decision for everyone concerned. And I'm proud of Bbrooke. It took a lot of courage.

Eric: Proud of her?

Stephanie: Yes. And if you understood how difficult this has been for her, you would be, too.

Ridge: I just want you to understand that Nick wasn't listening to me. He was being stubborn about the adoption.

Brooke: We came up here to forget about all that.

Ridge: But you haven't. All this talk about curtains falling and being in the moment here and not looking ahead. What's going on, Logan?

Brooke: Nothing.

Ridge: Look, if you don't think I can handle this, you're wrong.

Brooke: You would do anything for me. I know that.

Ridge: Then just trust me to work this out then, okay?

Brooke: Ridge, there's nothing for you to do tonight.

Ridge: You're having doubts.

Brooke: I would never doubt you.

Ridge: What about mother and Massimo? I know they were trying their best to make you feel as guilty as possible.

Brooke: I'll feel pretty guilty if I let you worry about this all night. Everything's fine. Nothing's wrong. We're gonna spend the holiday together, just you and me. And who knows when we'll get another chance like this, so let's just make the best of it, okay?

Ridge: That's it?

Brooke: Yeah. That's the most important thing in the world to me right now. Let's just forget about everything else and just enjoy this moment, okay?

Ridge: You can do that?

Brooke: I'll need some help.

[Brooke laughs] So relax. Come on. I have a whole kitchen full of food over there. I'm gonna make you a great dinner, one that you'll never forget.

Ridge: Hey. Do you know how much I love you?

Brooke: Yes. And tonight, I'm going to show you just how much I love you.


Sally: Darla, what do you mean your water broke?! That's not possible! It's not time for that! It is time.

Darla: I think it is.

Sally: Oh, dear. That doesn't make any sense. You haven't been having contractions, right?

Darla: Well, you know, I have been a little crampy all day.

Sally: What?!

Thorne: I'll call the doctor.

Darla: Okay.

Sally: Forget the doctor, call the paramedics! This woman is in labor!

Darla: No, no, I'm fine. Really, we can drive. It's no big deal oh!

Sally: What is it, honey?

[Darla groans] What is it? What hurts? What's your wrist? Is your wrist hurting?

Darla: Time.

Thorne: Okay, honey, we have to go. Let's go. Come on. Sally, get her purse?

[Darla groans]

Sally: All right, all right. Listen, I don't know whether I'm comin' or goin' here. Where's the purse.

Darla: Come on, Sally, come on. You said you'd be my coach. Let's go.

Thorne: Sal, move, let's go.

Sally: Of course I'll be your coach. Just give me a -- purse, purse, purse -- got it, got it. Here we go.

Intercom: Dr. Paxson,

to the delivery room.

Dr. Paxson, to the

delivery room.

Nurse #1: Thank you.

Nurse #2: What's going on?

Nurse #1: Oh, they're sending a patient up from the E.R. Darla Einstein. She's in labor, and it looks like a problematic delivery. She collapsed downstairs, and they asked for oxygen and a gurney.

Thorne: You're gonna be just fine, okay? Just breathe. Breathe now.

Sally: We're having a baby. We're having a baby!

Darla: Don't worry, Sal. Just relax, okay? Everything's gonna be fine!

[Darla giggles]


Eric: You're not proud of Brooke, Stephanie.

Stephanie: I'm not?

Eric: No, you're proud of yourself for cajoling Brooke into this decision.

Stephanie: I did no such thing. God knows I've tried. How many years did I try and keep her away from Ridge? Have I ever succeeded?

Eric: Ridge doesn't want this! He loves her. How did you convince her to do this, huh? Some kind of a guilt trip?

Stephanie: I didn't have to convince her.

Eric: Well, you didn't try to talk her out of it either.

Stephanie: No, I didn't try to talk her out of it. Her mind was made up. She's leaving him.

Eric: This is gonna tear him apart. Doesn't she realize that?

Stephanie: Of course she does, better than anyone. Why do you think she wanted to take him up to the cabin? She knows this is their last night together as a husband and wife. I mean, she's very aware of the fact that this is a memory that's going to have to last them the rest of their lives.


["Unforgettable" plays]

Brooke: Dance with me. They're playing our song.

Unforgettable that's what you are unforgettable though near or far

like a song of love that clings to me how the thought of you does things to me

never before has someone been more

unforgettable in every way and forever more

and forever more that's how you'll stay that's how you'll stay

Brooke: I remember the first time we danced like this.

Ridge: Only the first time?

Brooke: And every time after that.

Ridge: What do you remember?

Brooke: How safe I feel in your arms, trusting you to lead me, and knowing there's no place in the world I'd rather be.

Ridge: This is right where you belong, Logan.

No never before has someone been more

unforgettable unforgettable in every way in every way

and forever more and forever more that's how you'll stay that's how you'll stay

that's why, darling it's incredible

that someone so unforgettable thinks that I am unforgettable too


Thorne: How are you doing?

Darla: Okay, yeah. Maybe you should go check on Sal.

Thorne: No, I'll have the nurse do it. I'm not going anywhere.

Darla: It's still early.

Thorne: I don't care. I don't want to miss a minute of this.

Darla: I can't believe this is really happening.

Thorne: Yeah? Are you nervous?

[Darla sighs]

Darla: A little.

Thorne: A little?

Darla: Yeah. Is there anything I can do?

Darla: You've already done so much.

Thorne: Well, I'm just getting started.

Darla: Come here.

Dr. Paxson: Hello, Darla.

[All laugh] Are you ready to have this baby?

Darla: Uh --

Sally: Not without her coach. No, no.


Darla: Sally, oh, my god.

Sally: I'm back in the game, honey.

Darla: Oh, here we go. Oh.

Thorne: Another one already?

Darla: Yeah.

Sally: Doctor, doctor, get out of the way. Get out of the way. Hey, hey, hey. I gotcha. Remember, breathe, honey. Now pant. Breathe and pant. Pant like a dog.

[Both pant] What's this ee-ee-ee? That's like a Chihuahua. Honey, give me a Great Dane.

[Both pant] Good, good. That's it, Darla. Now we're doin' it. Come one.

[Both pant] Give me a St. Bernard.

[Both pant]


Brooke: Oh, thank you.

Ridge: I want to apologize to you.

Brooke: For what?

Ridge: Letting you down.

Brooke: It doesn't matter what you said to nick.

Ridge: I'm talkin' about what I said to you the other night, when you wanted to make love. I think that gave you the impression that this baby was coming between us, but that's not true. He's a part of you, Logan, and I love you -- every bit of you.

Brooke: I love you, too. More than you will ever know.

Ridge: But I do know. You've been there right beside me during some of the darkest moments of my life, supporting me, helping me face every challenge. Well, now you and I are facing a hell of a challenge, and I'm telling you right now that I'm -- I'm gonna be right beside you.

Brooke: And you have been, with Stephanie and Massimo. Nobody doubts that you love me.

Ridge: I don't think they're really convinced that I'm the man to raise this child. But I'm telling you right now, I am. I'm completely devoted to his mother and to this family.

Brooke: And that's what we need to concentrate on right now -- the family.

Ridge: Our family. And that little boy is gonna be a part of that family. He is not gonna come between this love, and nothing can come between us. Our love has survived every frustration and every doubt. You've proven that to me many times. Now, I'm gonna prove it to you and to everybody else. Logan, what is it?

Brooke: I wish it were that simple.

Ridge: It is.

Brooke: No, no, it isn't. I can't.

Ridge: You can't what?

Brooke: I can't let you do this.

Ridge: What are you talking about?

Brooke: I'm leaving, tonight. I'm taking Hope.

Ridge: You're leaving me?

Brooke: Yes.

Ridge: No, Logan. You are not leaving.
