[ Doorbell rings ]

Bridget: Hey, roomie. So, I heard something about you moving out.

Stephanie: Temporarily.

Bridget: Was it me? Did I do something wrong? Did I leave the light on past my bedtime, or worse?

Stephanie: I've been meaning to talk to you about that. No, I just thought they could use some help over here. I finally got the girls to sleep. You know, it's just difficult all around.

Bridget: I know. It's been so sad for everyone. I heard from my mom.

Stephanie: She called you?

Bridget: No, she e-mailed me. She doesn't want anyone to know where she is, but she just wanted to reassure me that she's okay.

Stephanie: Good. I know it's hard on her. But I'm glad that she has Hope with her at least.

Bridget: Yeah. She just needs time to be alone. You know, she needs to focus and figure out how to go on with her life from here.

Stephanie: I guess this was the hardest decision she's ever made in her life. But believe me, I respect her for doing it.

Bridget: Well, she would appreciate that. I know I do.

Stephanie: No easy choices. No easy choices at all. But your mother put her own needs aside, and she made the choice that's best for everyone in the family. She's really matured, hasn't she?

Bridget: I know. I know. She needs time to heal. I just -- god, I hope she's not away too long 'cause I miss her. And I miss Ridge. Where is he here? I wanna talk to him.

Stephanie: Oh, well, actually, he's upstairs. But this isn't a good time.

Bridget: Oh, well, don't worry about it. I'm just gonna take a minute.

Stephanie: No, no, no, don't go upstairs!

Bridget: Why not?

Stephanie: Um, well, he's not alone. Samantha's up there with him.

Bridget: Okay, well, is she trying to console him?

Stephanie: Well, actually, I hope she's trying to do a lot more than that.

Bridget: What?

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

Ridge: Sammy, what're you doing here?

Samantha: I hoped that would be clear.

Ridge: Yeah, it's very clear.

Samantha: Do you know how I feel about you? I just wanted to finally express it.

Ridge: Sammy, this isn't gonna work. This isn't gonna work.

Samantha: You never know until you try. I promise I can make you feel better.

Ridge: I don't know, Sammy. This just -- this just isn't you.

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

Dave: Great workout, Deacon.

Deacon: Yeah, thanks, man.

Dave: Hey, keep it up. It's just gonna get better.

Deacon: Okay. See you tomorrow?

Dave: All right.

Deacon: Bye.

Amber: Oh, great timing. Thanks. Who's that?

Deacon: That's Dave. He's my new therapist.

Amber: Ooh. Wait, wait, wait. I thought that was Bridget's job.

Deacon: It was, until it wasn't.

Amber: She bailed on you.

Deacon: She didn't bail on me. She, you know, saw I was making progress, thought maybe it was time to bring in a professional.

Amber: Sure she did.

Deacon: Okay, you know what? I'm not even gonna do this with you? Did you get the stuff I asked for?

Amber: Yes, yes. I got every last thing. Except, you know, I couldn't really decide on a tie, so I just got a whole bunch of them.

Deacon: Oh, wow. This is great. This one's nice. You like this one? It's classy, right?

Amber: Yeah, that was my favorite one. Um, okay, I give. What's all this about?

Deacon: It's about me. It's about Bridget. It's about tomorrow night.

Amber: What am I missing?

Deacon: I intend on sweeping her off her feet, and she's not gonna know what hit her.

Amber: Um, are you forgetting something -- just something small? Just the fact that she's engaged?

Deacon: Yeah, well, Ozzy has definitely proven to be a bit of an obstacle. But, you know, I got a sneaking suspicion that pretty soon that guy is just gonna be a distant memory.

Amber: Really? And how are you gonna do that?

Deacon: Okay, you know what I don't wanna hear any negativity, not from you, not from anybody else. After tomorrow night, I got a feeling everything is gonna change. Bridget's gonna realize that I'm the guy she needs.

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

Bridget: Did you arranged for Sam to seduce him?

Stephanie: "Facilitate" is a word that I like better.

Bridget: Oh, my god. What are you doing? You know how much ridge loves my mother, how much he's hurting right now. Stephanie, they're both hurting from this situation. There's no way he's just gonna be interested in somebody else.

Stephanie: Listen, Bridget, he's a healthy, sexy man. He needs someone else in his life.

Bridget: He's not just gonna jump into bed with someone so soon. Stephanie, sex doesn't cure everything.

Stephanie: And why not.

Bridget: Oh, my God. Okay, look, I understand what you're trying to do right now, but this is a band-aid. This isn't gonna help him.

[ Stephanie sighs ] I give up, I give up.

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

Samantha: Boy, you really know how to wreck a mood. It's a good thing I'm not insecure, or I'd be feeling like a jerk right about now.

Ridge: Sammy, you don't ever have to feel like a jerk. This is one of the nicest things anyone's ever done for me.

Samantha: What, you mean get naked and make a fool of herself in front of you?

Ridge: Hey, you don't need to talk about yourself that way.

Samantha: Well, I'd hoped -- you know how I feel about you. And it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Ridge: Well, you got a smile out of me.

Samantha: Oh, well, that's me. I'm always good for a laugh.

Ridge: That's more than anyone else has gotten out of me recently. Sammy, you are a very beautiful, desirable woman. Anyone would be lucky to be with you.

Samantha: But not you.

Ridge: I am just so in love with Brooke. There's nothing left inside of me for anyone else. That's all.

Samantha: Well, maybe seduction was the wrong angle. Maybe comfort would have been better -- like, homemade macaroni and cheese.

Ridge: Ooh. Just don't cover yourself in it, okay?

Samantha: Ooh, kinky. Yeah, I'll remember that. No, but seriously, Ridge, one of these days you will be ready for another woman. I just hope you'll keep me in mind.

Ridge: I just can't really imagine right now ever letting go of Brooke.

Samantha: Whatever happens between the two of you, she's a very lucky woman. Just know that I'll always be there for you.

Ridge: I know that, thank you.

Samantha: Good. And don't forget -- "always in motion is the future."

Ridge: Oh geez, your Yoda impression is even worse than mine.

Samantha: Very possibly. As is my Pamela Anderson imitation. If you don't mind, I think I'm gonna try and get out of here before I feel even more naked.

Ridge: Sammy, Sammy, Sammy -- thank you.

Samantha: You're very welcome. Now get some rest. And I will see you tomorrow at work, completely dressed.

Ridge: Tomorrow, at work.

Samantha: And Ridge -- thanks for the best sex I never had.

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

Amber: You're dreaming. Nothing's changed.

Deacon: What are you talking about? Everything has changed. Do have any idea how much physical therapy, how much electric stimulation I've done these past couple days?

Amber: Yeah, a lot!

Deacon: Well, you know what? It's hard. And I've been doing it for us -- for me and Bridget.

Amber: Look, Deacon, I don't wanna rain on your parade, but Bridget and Ozzy, they're solid. Deacon, I know you love her, and I know you don't wanna give her up, but sometimes we have to. Okay? I mean, giving up Rick, it was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. But sometimes you have to, and time marches on, and you move on, and -- I'm just saying, you focus on the new company, on the future.

Deacon: You know what? You're absolutely right. That's what I'm doing. I'm focusing on the future, mine and Bridget's. And after tomorrow night, I think she'll be on board. See, I've got a secret weapon I don't think she's gonna be able to resist.

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

Thomas: Oh. Thank you, God.

Samantha: Oh, I'm sorry. I -- I was looking for the bathroom to change. Obviously, I'm in the wrong room.

Thomas: No, not really. But I don't know why you'd want to change. You look really hot.

Samantha: Thanks. I gotta go.

Thomas: Wait -- what are you doing here, anyway?

Samantha: I, uh -- I --

Thomas: Looking for my dad?

Samantha: Uh, yeah.

Thomas: Didn't work out, huh?

Samantha: Not exactly.

Thomas: Too bad. Too soon. It was nice of you to try. That's a Forrester you have on, right? Spring catalogue. Yup. Right here. But it looks much better on you -- much.

Samantha: You really are your father all over again, aren't you?

Thomas: That's what everybody says. But my life isn't nearly as complicated as his.

Samantha: Well, few people's are.

Thomas: And I'd hate to see a beautiful woman like you, wearing that -- going to waste.

Samantha: Really?

Thomas: Yeah. I think you need someone who has less on his mind than dad.

Samantha: Or maybe only one thing on his mind.

Thomas: Am I that transparent?

Samantha: Are you coming on to me?

Thomas: Why not?

Samantha: You're a kid.

Thomas: I'm not as young as you think.

Samantha: Oh, yeah? Well, what would you do if I took you up on it?

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

Stephanie: What are you doing here? I thought you were --

Ridge: You thought I was what?

Stephanie: I was hoping you were in bed.

Ridge: I should've known it. You sent Sam up there, didn't you? You're the only one with the guts to send another woman up to my bed. Boy, you probably even bought the teddy, too, didn't you? Oh, for God's sakes. You did.

Stephanie: Well, it's just a little help from your friends. Is that so awful?

[ Ridge sighs ]

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

[ Crickets chirping ]

[ Bridget giggling ]

Bridget: Oh, what's this? "A very special surprise for a very special woman. Meet me tomorrow night in the private dining room at 8:00. You won't be disappointed." Ozzy, you are such a romantic.

Amber: So, Bridget's supposed to think she's having dinner with Ozzy. And when she walks in the door --

Deacon: She's gonna find yours truly.

Amber: And what's to stop her from turning around and walking right back out.

Deacon: Well, I'd like to think it's gonna be me, looking incredibly dashing in my new tuxedo. Look, I'm gonna show her. I'm gonna prove to her that I'm who she needs.

Amber: Deacon --

Deacon: Amber, don't underestimate me here, okay? By the time the night's over, she's not gonna have any doubts.

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

Samantha: I asked you, "what if I said yes to your offer?"

Thomas: Why don't you try and find out? Figured it was too good to be true.

Samantha: You're a great guy, Thomas. Find someone your own age, and I promise you, they won't be able to refuse you.

Thomas: Here. You look cold.

Samantha: You see, I was right. You are a good kid.

Thomas: I'm not just a good kid.

Samantha: No, you're not. You are many things. And I'm sure you're gonna have a terrific time finding out what all those things are, but right now, I gotta get dressed.

Thomas: I'll close my eyes.

Samantha: Not.

Thomas: I'll let you out.

Samantha: Thank you. Really.

Thomas: Sam? Don't give up on my dad. He's in pretty bad shape. He does need someone.

Samantha: Yeah, he does, Thomas. It's just not me.

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

Ridge: I don't know why I should be surprised.

Stephanie: Well, sweetheart, actually --

Ridge: Mother. Sam is a wonderful, wonderful lady. And she's been a great friend to me. I just have a little bit of a problem seeing her any other way but that, okay?

Stephanie: You're right, dear. It was silly of me.

Ridge: Look, not even you can fix something like this. When Brooke left, she took my heart with her, and I don't think anything's gonna fill that spot inside of me, okay?

Stephanie: I know that's what you think now. But honey, life goes on.

Ridge: Like it did when you and dad split?

Stephanie: I didn't say it wouldn't hurt. But I'm still here. And I'm living my life.

Ridge: Ah, but you're still hopeful, aren't you? Mm? At least you get to speak to dad. You get to see him. I don't have any idea when Brooke's coming back. I'd just like to speak with her. I like to hear her voice, to feel her presence, to know that she's okay. My work is suffering. My kids? They need me, and I have nothing left for them.

Stephanie: Well, that was the whole point of this. You can't take care of other people if you don't take care of yourself.

Ridge: I just want my wife back. That's all. This whole thing still seems so bizarre to me. That you can have it all, have everything one day, and the next day, bam! It's gone just like that. Disappeared.

Stephanie: I wish I had better answers for you.

Ridge: Well, there are no answers. That's the point, too. Brooke is having my brother's child. You know something really bizarre? I found a way to accept that inside of myself, but she couldn't. She said something to me before she left. She said someday, we're gonna be together again. And I believe her. I do believe her, mother. I just want to know when it's gonna happen. You know, do we have to wait until this child's fully-grown? We have to wait until we're both old and gray? What's the deal here?

Stephanie: Oh, honey. I understand exactly how you feel. Believe me, I do. This kind of love doesn't just go away. Whether you will accept this now or not, you can still find happiness.

Ridge: How?

Stephanie: Well, you get out of bed every day. Put one foot in front of the other. You smile when you don't want to smile. And you do that the next day, and the next day, and the next.

Ridge: Yeah, well, I just don't -- I just can't really do that right now.

Stephanie: Yes, you can. You can. And you have your children. Just hold on to them, and love them. You still have me.

Ridge: Yeah.

Stephanie: You'll always have me.

Ridge: Thank you, mother. Thank you.
