Brooke: Ridge, please, you have to listen to me.

Ridge: No. No! Not when you're talking nonsense like this.

Brooke: This isn't easy for me either.

Ridge: Logan, I love you, you love me. There's no way you're leaving me, so wherever this is coming from -- listen, there is nothing that we can't face together.

Brooke: I used to believe that, Ridge, and a part of me still wants to, but I can't. I don't -- I don't believe that anymore, because it isn't true. And the worst thing to do is to pretend that it is.

[ Darla breathing heavy ]

Thorne: Hey.

Darla: Any sign of Sal?

Thorne: Yeah, she said she'd be right back. She knows she appointed herself your coach.

Darla: You don't mind, do you? Sharing this with Sal? You know, she's like the mom I never had.

Thorne: Of course I don't mind. But, right now, I'm -- I'm glad it's just the two of us.

Darla: Well, honey, make that the three of us.

Thorne: Yeah.

Dr. Paxson: Okay, Darla. Let's see how things have progressed. Okay. The nurse says you're dilated to ten. We're ready to deliver.

Darla: Oh, my.

[ Whistle ]

Sally: All right, everybody, heads up. That means you, Darla, and you, Thorne, and you, doctor. It is time for us to go into a huddle. Now, listen, Darla, we gotta finalize our game plan here. I know you haven't had too much experience. I know how green you are. You've never really played in the big leagues before, but you only have to remember one thing. Keep your eye on the prize.

Darla: On the prize.

Gladys: My exact words to Fang on our wedding night. Your film crew is here. And we're ready for action.

Darla: Oh, my god.

[ Whistle ]

Sally: Thank you. Thank you so much, Gladys. I'm glad you finally got here. But would you mind dropping the low comedy routine and just focus that thing on the star attraction here, okay?

Darla: Oh -- ohh. Oh, Thorne.

Dr. Paxson: Okay, I'll get the nurse. I'll get the nurse.

Thorne: Breathe, babe.

Darla: Breathe.

Thorne: Breathe, breathe.

Sally: It's going to be okay, Darla. Now remember what we taught you. Nice and easy. Get this, Gladys.

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

Stephanie: They never said it would be easy, did they?

Nick: I don't know. What are we talking about?

Stephanie: Life.

Nick: Life. Did you come here to get philosophical, Stephanie?

Stephanie: No, I came to talk to you about Brooke.

Nick: I don't want to hear anything negative about her, especially given what she's going through.

Stephanie: I'm not here to bash her, believe me. Actually, I don't have anything bad to say about Brooke at all.

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

Ridge: Look, I realize I let you down the other night.

Brooke: No, you didn't let me down. I let you down. You couldn't make love to me, Ridge, because I'm carrying your brother's child -- a brother you were just getting to know and care about before all of this happened.

Ridge: Look, don't worry about my brother and me. He and I will work that through.

Brooke: Oh, god, how do I get you to see? How do I get you to understand? You will never get the happiness you deserve as long as I'm your wife.

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

[ Darla breathing heavy ]

Sally: What do you think, doc? Not bad for a rookie, huh?

Dr. Paxson: Darla's doing fine.

Sally: Good, Darla.

Dr. Paxson: I'm not so sure about your friend.

Sally: Huh? Who? Oh. Oh, Gladys. Gladys. What? What's wrong?

Gladys: Sympathy pains. Every time Einstein has a contraction, I have horse -- oh!

Sally: Oh, stop it, stop it! Now, listen to me, Gladys. I want you back in the game. Right now. And if you don't shape up, I am gonna bench you -- permanently. Now get in the game, get in there and get to work.

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

Nick: What brought this on?

Stephanie: I think you know.

Nick: All I know is that Brooke's up at Big Bear with your son right now.

Stephanie: And you're wondering if she's going to go through with it.

Nick: Go through with what?

Stephanie: Ending it with Ridge.

Nick: You think she can do it?

Stephanie: I think it's going to take all the strength that she has to walk away from everything. But I think she's smart enough to know it's the only answer.

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

Ridge: This is so crazy. Crazy, Brooke. You are everything to me.

Brooke: And you are everything to your family -- a family you didn't even know existed most of your life. And now you have a brother, you have a father. You're part of the Marone dynasty. And as long as you stay married to me, Ridge, there's always going to be a mark on that name.

Ridge: Oh, Brooke, please, you have nothing at all to be ashamed of here.

Brooke: Ridge, how can you say that? A wife should be somebody that you're proud of, that you admire.

Ridge: I am proud of you, and I do admire you.

Brooke: You admire the woman I was -- before it became pregnant with your brother's child.

Ridge: Brooke, would you please stop with that? Stop.

Brooke: Ridge, you know that it's true. My god, how can you not think of anything else when you look at me? We can't even make love.

Ridge: That's why you're doing this?

Brooke: What we have is so perfect. It's so real, and it feels so right. But I can't. I can't do this. I can't stay married to one brother and be pregnant with the other brother's child. I just can't do that, Ridge. It's not right. And it's not fair. It's not fair to you. I'm going to have to live with the consequences of that night for the rest of my life. Nobody loves you more than I do. And nobody's hurt you as much as I have either. So, tonight -- tonight, that's it. It has to end -- for everybody's sake.

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

Nick: Well, you talk about a 180.

Stephanie: I'm very sad for both of them. They're losing everything. If there really was any other way -- there just -- there just isn't.

Nick: You're that sure?

Stephanie: I'm sure that she's giving up everything for the baby and for your family, and it's probably the most selfless thing that she's ever done in her life. It'll take a long time, but eventually Brooke will be happy again. It just won't be with Ridge.

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

Ridge: Logan, I won't let you do this.

Brooke: You will, if you love me as much as I know you do. Stephanie used to say that I was a very selfish person, that I would put my needs ahead of everybody else. Well, maybe that's who I was. But that's not who I am now. It's still not going to stop the feeling your mother and father will have that I disgraced the whole family. And it won't stop the day from coming -- when I know you'll no longer love me the way you do now. I won't keep the shame from wearing you out. I can't bear the thought of doing that to you. Which is why I have to leave. And which is why you have to let me go. It's the only way our love can survive.

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

Sally: Is she still doing okay, doc?

Dr. Paxson: It looks like we're in the home stretch.

Sally: Yes, yes.

Thorne: You hear that, honey? The baby's almost here.

Dr. Paxson: A few more good pushes. Come on.

Sally: Gladys, Gladys, are you getting the shot of this, huh?

Gladys: Yeah, Im getting it, coach.

Sally: What do you mean? You're not getting it. Get the camera up there, put it on the mother's face. Come on, Darla. Smile pretty for the camera.

Dr. Paxson: And one last big push, here we go.

Darla: I don't feel like smiling, Sally!

Dr. Paxson: Here comes the baby, here comes the baby! Oh, here we go, here we go. It's a girl!

Thorne: It's a girl?

[ Darla panting ]

[ baby crying ]

Darla: My beautiful baby. It's mommy.

Thorne: She's beautiful. She's beautiful. Look at that.

Darla: Yes, I'm right here.

Thorne: Look at that.

Darla: I'm right here, baby. I love you.

Thorne: Oh.

Darla: I know.

[ Baby crying ] did you ever notice how kids have the perfect hair color?

Darla: I tried so hard to imagine this moment, what it would be like, holding our baby for the very first time. Here she is. So tiny. So perfect. Just really made me realize --

Thorne: A thousand times more wonderful than you ever could have imagined, huh?

Darla: I think I know what I want to name her.

Thorne: Yeah?

Darla: Yeah. Alexandria.

Thorne: Yeah.

Darla: After Macy.

Sally: Macy Alexander, and sweet baby Alexandria. Thank you, Darla.

Thorne: I think that would make Macy very happy.

Sally: I know it would. And now I am going to make the two of you very happy. I'm go to leave you alone together to get acquainted with your brand-new daughter. The lovely and enchanting, baby Alexandria.

Thorne: Thanks, Sally.

Sally: I love you.

Darla: I love you, Sal. I think she knows.

Thorne: How much we already love her. Yeah, she knows.

Darla: I just never thought my heart could feel so full. She truly is a miracle, Thorne.

Thorne: Yeah. A miracle you and I created.

Darla: Happy New Year, little one. Happy life.

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

Stephanie: Brooke is carrying your child.

Nick: But she's never going to get over Ridge. Not -- not completely.

Stephanie: Oh, they're always going to love one another, that's true. But, eventually, individually, they'll find their own happiness. Maybe she'll even find some happiness with you.

Nick: Well, I want to be there for her and help her through this.

Stephanie: She's going to take some time by herself. She's asked me to bring her little girl up to the cabin. They're going to leave tonight, but I'm sure she's going to want to see you as soon as she gets back.

Nick: I'm not going anywhere.

Stephanie: Good. Well, I'm gonna go pick up Hope.

Nick: Stephanie, if there's anything you can do to help Brooke through tonight

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

Ridge: What are you doing?

Brooke: I told you. I have to leave.

Ridge: No, damnit, Logan. I'm not just going to let you walk out of my life like this. This is not the way to handle this, not when two people love each other as much as you and I do and always will. Unless -- you don't believe that anymore.

Brooke: Yes, of course, I believe that, Ridge. I will never stop believing that. And if this child was ours, it would be perfect, but it's not our child. It's going to be a struggle. It's going to taint everything that we have, and that's why I have to leave. Before we stop loving each other. Please, just listen to me. I always believed that love was the most important thing. And I will never stop loving you. But there are other things that matter, too. There's a child, a person's dignity, the honor of a family -- those things matter, Ridge. And I can't just turn my back on that, anymore than I can keep you in a situation that will cause you pain. I can't do that to you. I can't do that to us. That is why this is -- this is good-bye.

Ridge: Don't go.

Brooke: Ridge, please. Don't say anything. Just hold me. This is what I want to remember. I want to feel your arms around me. The touch of your skin on mine. I want to remember us like this forever. I'm going to miss you so much.

[ Brooke sobbing ]
