Jackie: Darling, we are so glad that we were able to steal you away from your studies tonight.

Bridget: Hmm -- review infectious disease epidemiology or party with the Marones. You didn't exactly have to twist my arm on that one!

Massimo: Yes, I know, but Bridget, we understand how demanding pre-med is, all right? So we appreciate your taking time out to be with us.

Bridget: Oscar and I wouldn't dream of missing it.

Jackie: Oh, you make such an adorable couple. Oh, wouldn't it be wonderful if both you and your mother married into the Marone family?

Massimo: Jacqueline --

Bridget: That would be something, all right.

Jackie: At this rate, we won't just need another leaf on the dining room table, we'll need a whole new dining room to accommodate our expanding family!

Massimo: Well, that is fine with me, because I'm looking forward to having a little Marone running around here. As a matter of fact, if we're lucky, maybe in a couple of years we'll have a whole bunch of Marones running around here, huh?

[ Laughter ]

Maid: Pardon me, sir.

Massimo: Yes?

Maid: Dinner is ready.

Massimo: Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you. Ah, I don't want to interrupt everyone, but dinner is being served. Let's get to the dining room.

Oscar: Chow time!

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

Eric: Ridge, you gotta stop doing that.

Ridge: Doing what, Dad?

Eric: Obsessing about Brooke being over there at the Marone compound. It's not healthy.

Ridge: That's only one of the things on my mind right now.

Eric: What else?

Ridge: I'm talking about work.

Eric: Work?

Ridge: I've decided to quit Logan designs.

Eric: What?! You and Brooke just launched that company!

Ridge: She and I working together was our dream. It's become too difficult now with us being so close to each other all the time, and something had to give.

Eric: Oh, and it had to be you.

Ridge: Well actually, she's offered to step down first.

Eric: Ah, but you wouldn't let her.

Ridge: She's sacrificed far too much lately, Dad.

Eric: That's very noble of you --

Ridge: Oh, no, no, no. It's not that altruistic. I'm doing this for me, too. Give myself time to kinda sort things out.

Eric: That's probably a pretty good idea. So, any idea what your next move's going to be?

Ridge: Yeah, you're looking at it.

Eric: What, this? Shipping?! Oh, come on, Ridge. It's fashion. Fashion is in your blood. C'mon. You're an artist -- like me. Come home. Come back to Forrester creations. That's where you belong.

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

Massimo: You know, having you all here like this has made me realize just how empty it's been around here until we've all been able to come together.

Oscar: The way this family's growing, you're gonna be wishing for that solitude before long.

Massimo: Not a chance, Oscar. As a matter of fact, I think this would be a good time for us to acknowledge all our blessings. It's been a tradition in the Marone family to say grace before dining, especially on a special occasion such as this --

Jackie: Massimo.

Massimo: Mm-hmm?

Jackie: May I have the honor tonight?

Massimo: By all means.

Jackie: Because it is, indeed, a very special occasion. We've got so much to be thankful for. I mean, not just Martha's feast that we are about partake of, but the fact that we -- we're a family, and we've finally come together. We're bound together, not just by blood, friendship and love, but now with Brooke and the special, special child that she's carrying. It was a child -- our darling Nicky -- that reunited Massimo and me. And now it is another child that is going to bring together Brooke and nick. May they find as much happiness in each other and in their son as we have. And may we all share in these blessings. Amen.

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

Ridge: Dad, thanks so much for the offer, but I think I need to sink my teeth into something besides fashion right now.

Eric: All right, just remember, if you ever change your mind and decide to come back to the fold, I'd be proud to have you. That would be something -- to have the Forresters reunited again.

Ridge: How are things at Forrester? The debut of the spring collection should be around the corner.

Eric: Yes, except I don't have much to debut right now. I've been visited by a severe case of designer's block. Biggest showing of my career, and I have almost nothing to show for it.

Ridge: Hey, that just sounds like you need some inspiration. You know how this works. As always, it'll just hit you when you least expect it. Hey, I wanna thank you for coming by. And I wanna thank you for just being here for me.

Eric: That'll never change.

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

Brooke: This reminds me of family dinners we used to have -- minus the maid, of course.

Jackie: I can't wait to meet your parents, Brooke. I'm sure they're just as delightful, as you are.

Oscar: I knew it. I knew I smelled mom's lasagna!

Massimo: No Marone feast is complete without it.

Oscar: I gotta tell you, I haven't had this in years. I mean I did, but not until a few weeks ago when mojo decided to served it up for dinner. I mean it's awesome. You've got quite a few tricks up your sleeve recently, don't you, old boy?

Oscar: I'll tell you, I was surprised all right. Actually it was really great. It was the first time that I really felt part of the Marone family.

Massimo: You are, indeed, Oscar.

Oscar: Well, I know that now. And I hope that eventually the two of you ladies will feel the same way.

Bridget: I was fortunate to be raised amongst a strong family like the Forresters. And now I've been showered with even more good fortune -- engaged to the wonderful, wacky Ozzy Marone.

Oscar: Wait a minute. What does that mean,wacky?! What was that?

Bridget: Not to mention being embraced by his family. Each and every one of you is very dear to my heart. But there's one person, in particular, I would like to acknowledge tonight -- my Mom. I've witnessed, first hand, the struggles that she's been through, the sacrifices she's made. And, rather than let them defeat her, she's emerged a stronger, better, more caring person. I couldn't be more proud of her and this woman that she's become. Rick, Hope, me, this little baby inside of her -- we couldn't be luckier than to have her as our mom. And he's so lucky to be born into all of this.

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

Ridge: Might as well get this over with.

Clarke: Not letting any grass grow underneath your feet, huh?

Ridge: What's with the glum face, garrison? You should be ecstatic; I'm turning the design reins over to you.

Clarke: Oh, you know me. I'm always ready to step in, but I have to confess that I'm gonna miss you. I'm going to miss your talent and your vision.

Ridge: Vision's a little cloudy these days.

Clarke: Well, you and Brooke've had cloudy days before. But I think the sun is going to shine through for you. You're on the right track now. You forgave Brooke for her affair --

Ridge: It wasn't an affair. Nick took advantage of my wife, ruined our dreams, Clarke -- everything this company represents.

Clarke: I know how you feel about Brooke. Your not ready to throw in the towel.

Ridge: I'm not giving up on Brooke. I'll never do that. And I'll never forgive Nick for what he did either. Brooke should be right here with me now. And she should be carrying our child.

Clarke: So that's why you're leaving here? Because Brooke is committed to moving on, starting a new life?

Ridge: Even if she does move on, she's not moving on with Nick.

Clarke: You seem pretty confident about that.

Ridge: As delusional as it sounds, Clarke, I still can't ignore this feeling that binds me to Brooke. It's kinda like when you know something is just perfect.

Clarke: I know what you mean. Like a perfect design. No matter what the trends are, no matter what the critics say, it's right.

Ridge: That's how I feel about Brooke. Even though things may never be the same for us.

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

Jackie: Oscar, I'm glad to see you like the beef bourguignon as much as you did the lasagna.

Oscar: Well let me tell you, it's a good thing you don't have to know how to pronounce it to enjoy it.

Nick: Takes time. Took me a few years actually.

Jackie: Massimo, everything okay?

Massimo: Oh, more than okay. I was just thinking about my father. I was thinking about why I devoted most of my life and energy into building Marone industries, making money. And it turns out, it's all because of my family, who finally made me feel like a rich man. Brooke, I know that we've had our differences in the past. But you've shown me that you appreciate the importance of family. Bridget was right. You've shown great strength of character, putting this family before your wishes and desires. And everyone at this table benefits by your resolve -- especially my grandson. Now I know that you could have made other choices, but you made the right one. You could've turned this family into a war, pitted brother against brother. But, instead, we are all here as one. And we have you to thank for that, Brooke.

Nick: There is one person missing at this table.

Massimo: Yes, Ridge. And he is profoundly missed, but I am confident that he will soon find his place at this table and be a part of our family again. And at that time, we will all be united as Marones.

Brooke: How did you know that I love chocolate?

Jackie: Oh, a little bird told me.

Brooke: Thank you.

Jackie: You're very welcome. Every expectant mother should indulge her sweet tooth.

 Brooke: Well, I want to tell you that I appreciate this evening and all of your kind words, your faith in me. I've never been embraced by a family like this. And even though I've decided to handle this myself, I welcome all the support that I can get. There's a huge hole in my heart that will never be filled. But I have discovered the strength to move on with my life and now that I have that strength, all of your help, I think I'll be able to find some way to survive this.

Bridget: You can count on all of us, Mom.

Brooke: I know. I will.

Brooke: Well, you know the baby has requested that I stop blabbering and stretch my legs a bit. Excuse me.

Nick: I think I'll get a little fresh air myself.

Massimo: Bridget, I've been meaning to ask you

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

rolling like waves on the sea we make it day by day watching the world go by

in a moment where time stands still from here we'll look out on forever

our love a love that never fades away

our love a love that lights the world

Nick: That must be uncomfortable for you in there, huh?

Brooke: A little. But it's hard to stay that way, though, with all that outpouring of support in there.

Nick: Well, they mean every word of it. You know how excited my mother ms about this child.

Brooke: Really? I didn't notice.

Nick: Yeah, well, subtlety's not her strong suit.

Brooke: Her heart's in the right place.

Nick: I hope you're not felling pressure, 'cause it's not like that. I know you've got a lot on your mind.

Brooke: Thank you for understanding that. What about you? How do you feel?

Nick: I'm happy. Does that sound kinda funny coming from a crusty old sailor? I look at things differently now. I look at 'em like a parent, because I wanna do and I wanna be the best I can for my son. That's just an incredible feeling I've never felt before.

Brooke: Conceiving a child is really a miracle.

Nick: But see, I never belived in miracles. I relied on wit and instinct to get me through the sea. But I believe in them now.

Brooke: Do you?

Nick: Mm-hmm. Well, look at my life in the last year. Think about it. I should have died when that tanker went ashore. But what happened? I met your daughter. And she brings me back to Los Angeles and I find my family. And I met you, and we're having a beautiful child together.

Brooke: Everything happens for a reason.

Nick: This is crazy, but part of my feels, I don't know, guilty for feeling so good about this. But then another part of my knows it'd be a crime not to feel so good about this.

Brooke: Sister Madelaine said the same thing to me at the retreat.

Nick: That's why this is right then. That's why it's right for you, and it's right for me, and that's why this child is a beautiful thing. And we just have to embrace everything that life brings us. I don't mean that to sound as though --

Brooke: No, no, it's good. All your enthusiasm and everybody's support in there -- it reminds me of how lucky this child's going to be.

Nick: I'll always be there -- for both of you.

Brooke: That means a great deal to me.

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

Jackie: Thank you, darling. It's happening, Massimo.

Massimo: What?

Jackie: Something wonderful. Nicky -- Nicky's finally going to get happiness, the family that he's wanted his entire life.
