[Knock on door]

Samantha: So the rumors are true. You are leaving.

Ridge: 'Fraid so.

Samantha: Is this your choice?

Ridge: It's my decision, Sam, not my choice. I've got to move on. Brooke obviously has.

Samantha: Ridge, the way you say that --

Ridge: I don't doubt her feelings for me. We still love each other. But -- all that just doesn't really matter.

Samantha: Well, of course it matters.

Ridge: It didn't last night. She's out having dinner with Nick and his whole family.

Samantha: It's your family, too, Ridge.

Ridge: I just can't be a part of this. It hurts too much. Being home last night, having to come here and do this now, it's just killing me.

Samantha: So you think that running away is gonna make you feel better? Brooke is a part of you. No matter where you go, no matter what you do, nothing's gonna change that.

Ridge: No. But everything else has changed. And I have to accept that, regardless of our feelings. Brooke is carrying my brother's child. And now -- now he wants to make damn sure that her future is with him and not me.

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

[ Applause ]

Brooke: That was beautiful.

Nick: Thanks. Thanks. Guess it wasn't so bad.

Brooke: Not so bad? It was incredible.

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

Stephanie: You want to come home?

Eric: Yes. I want to start all over again. With you.

Stephanie: Where is this coming from, Eric?

Eric: From here. From my heart. I've been looking everywhere for my inspiration. Something that gives real meaning to my life. And then I found it, right where it's always been. Right here next to me.

Stephanie: You've forgiven me for Ridge?

Eric: How can I stay angry at you for not telling me something you didn't know yourself?

Stephanie: You have every right to be angry with me.

Eric: Well, then, you have every right to be angry with me. And how many times have you apologized to me? How many times have you asked for my forgiveness, and I just turned my back on you? I promised for better or for worse, and when it got worse, I just -- I walked away.

Stephanie: Eric, I hurt you.

Eric: No, stop. Stephanie, it's done. It's finished. Ridge is not my biological son, but that hasn't changed how much he and I love each other. It doesn't erase all the wonderful memories we have together. Everything we mean to each other.

Stephanie: Well, that is the truth.

Eric: Yes. Yes, it is. And you -- you are the most important thing in my life. Without you, I have nothing. There's no family, there's no company, there's -- how can I blame you for this one mistake when I -- when I've made so many myself?

Stephanie: Eric -- I'm not sure that I've been completely honest with you.

Eric: You were protecting me, I know that now.

Stephanie: No. No, you don't. That's what makes this so difficult.

Eric: Is this what -- is this what you want?

Stephanie: Yes, it is. I do. I mean, I want that more than anything in the world. And -- you know, you're right when you say you can't be angry with me over something that I didn't know. I think I've just -- sort of come to this realization recently. I mean, you know, I've had time to think things out and think them through and -- what if I did know?

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

Man: Hey, man, it sounded great.

Nick: Thanks, guys.

Brooke: I didn't think you sang in front of people.

Nick: Well, I really didn't expect anybody to be here.

Brooke: You were just practicing?

Nick: Caught me.

Brooke: Well, most people moonlight at night. That's why they call it moonlighting.

Nick: I'm not moonlighting.

Brooke: But this isn't your band?

Nick: This is a house band that I just kind of play with every now and then.

Brooke: But you sounded so good.

Nick: Thanks.

Jackie: Oh, Nicky. Tell her how you feel. Let her in.

Brooke: That was the song that you were writing on the plane from France, right?

Nick: Yeah. I've been working on it for a while, actually.

Brooke: Those words -- "try to forget the past, and just let today begin." Did you write that for me? I don't mean to presume. I just thought that maybe --

Nick: Yes. Yeah. I wrote it for you.

Brooke: So you wrote me a song.

Nick: Who knows? Maybe I would have played it for you someday.

Brooke: You didn't want me to hear it?

Nick: I really hadn't thought about it. I don't know. I don't want you to feel uncomfortable.

Brooke: You're the one who seems uncomfortable.

Nick: I was just trying it out. I didn't think you'd be here.

Brooke: Well, it was beautiful. And I really appreciate that you wrote me a song. I'm gonna let you go back to your friends.

Nick: You're leaving?

Brooke: Yes, I have to get back to the office.

Nick: Well, wait a second. I didn't really ask you -- why are you here?

Brooke: It doesn't matter anymore. Thanks. It was a beautiful song.

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

Jackie: Oh, Nicky. Nicky.

Nick: Mother, what the hell are you doing here?

Jackie: That was marvelous. I mean, the song, it's gorgeous. You know, to think that I might have missed it had I not come over here after I saw your note on the "Marlin." I wouldn't have forgiven you, you know. But I might now, because darling, you were wonderful. The song, I mean, the lyrics, I have never heard you express yourself so beautifully, so eloquently. I loved it, Nicky, and Brooke did, too. She was completely overwhelmed.

Nick: Maybe that explains why she left.

Jackie: No, she was overwhelmed. She was flustered. Believe me, I know what I saw.

Nick: Mother, not to be rude, but I think you see what you want to see sometimes.

Jackie: Well, that was rude. Listen to me. The dinner last night, the song, you're opening up to her, Nicky. And whether you admit it or not, Brooke is responding.

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

Eric: You knew Ridge wasn't mine?

Stephanie: Well, I'd slept with someone else. I mean, it was possible. You know what I did, Eric? I locked it in my mind. In the deepest, darkest part of my mind, I locked it up. I walked away from it, because -- because I was so madly in love with you, I didn't want to lose you.

Eric: In all those years -- all those years, you never said anything to me about this?

Stephanie: You were the only one for me, Eric. And I thought that I was the only one for you. That's no excuse. Of course. I mean --

Eric: Why are you telling me this? Now?

Stephanie: At this moment, why wouldn't I? I'm -- I'm delighted that I was your muse, if only for a short time, and I'm very happy for you. You know, that you've found your inspiration.

Eric: I just asked to move home with you.

Stephanie: Well, that's why I had to tell you the truth.

Eric: Even if I can't forgive you?

Stephanie: Yes. Well -- I'm happy that you wanted at least to -- to try. I'll always be -- grateful for that.

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

[ Door closes ]

Brooke: Ridge. You came back.

Ridge: I had to pack up a few more things.

Brooke: Oh.

Ridge: Look, I'll get out of your way. Somebody from shipping will come up and get these.

Brooke: Ridge, wait.

Ridge: Look, I wouldn't have been here now except security told me you were out of the building.

Brooke: We don't have to avoid each other.

Ridge: No, I think it's probably better that we do. Just, you know, for the time being.

Brooke: You don't want to tempt me?

Ridge: I just don't want to feel like this. The distance between us, the tension and all. It's kind of killing me inside.

Brooke: I'm sorry.

Ridge: No, it's not your fault. You were right. I guess it's too difficult.

Brooke: To work together. That doesn't mean that we can't --

Ridge: Well, I can't, Brooke. I can't really be around you like this. Seeing you, smelling you, hearing your voice, just makes me want to reach out and love you like I always have. I've tried to tell you how into raising this child I would be with you. I won't put you through that anymore.

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

Stephanie: Ellen? Ellen, I got your message. I'm here. What's all this?

Eric: Hello, again.

Stephanie: What are you doing here?

Eric: What's it look like I'm doing? I'm making myself at home.

Stephanie: Well, I don't think I know quite what to say.

Eric: Why don't you not say anything? All right? You talk too much as it is. And you're always telling me what to do. I'm a little tired of that, actually. If I want to forgive you, I can.

Stephanie: Of course you can.

Eric: I tried to hate you. I tried to hold a grudge. But all I really ended up doing was hanging onto you to fill the void in my life with righteous indignation.

Stephanie: It's not very satisfying, is it?

Eric: Well, no. I got the company back. I thought that would change everything. But it didn't help. And then I -- I went after deacon's shares in the company. I thought that would solve all the problems. But it really didn't. And then last night, in the middle of the night, I realized what was missing -- you.

Stephanie: There can't be any more secrets between us ever again.

Eric: There won't be. There aren't any, are there?

Stephanie: No. We have a lot to work through.

Eric: Yeah, I know. We will. Together. Here. In our home.

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

Jackie: Nicky, I know what I saw. The way that Brooke looked at you when you were singing. It was -- you two connected. And if you're not going to be happy about that, then I am. Because you and Brooke Logan are on your way to something --

[ Jackie sighs ] So grand.

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

Ridge: Look, I don't really want to make any of this more difficult for you than it already is. But we can't keep going on like everything's okay. You and Nick are about to become parents. And we both know what that means. That's one hell of a commitment.

Brooke: A commitment to our child.

Ridge: See? Therein lies the problem. Your child. I'm not a part of this, Brooke, and I never will be.

Brooke: Ridge, you're still my husband.

Ridge: Yeah, well, I -- I guess that's a problem, too, isn't it?

Brooke: We'll take care of that.

Ridge: Yeah. I already have.

Brooke: An annulment?
