[ Wind howling ]

[ Knock on door ]

Ridge: Man! Man, it's windy out there!

Massimo: Yes. I am so glad you could come.

Ridge: It sounded urgent. What's up?

Massimo: Well, it is urgent. I'm -- I'm concerned for you, ridge. I mean, it broke my heart to see what you and the children went through this afternoon with Brooke at the hospital.

Ridge: Really? I thought you would have been thrilled.

Massimo: Thrilled?

Ridge: Yeah. For Nick. After all, he got a chance to see his -- his son, didn't he? Beautiful kid, too. Obviously got Brooke's looks, that's for sure.

Massimo: And, hopefully, her courage. Because she made a tremendous sacrifice, putting that child's needs before her own. Ridge, I -- I respect Brooke for her decision.

Ridge: It's funny how everybody has this newfound respect for Brooke, now that she and I aren't together.

Massimo: She understands the duty that she has to this unborn child that she is carrying -- and to Dominick and to the new family that she's about to be a part of.

Ridge: Yeah, that's what everyone keeps telling me. But you know what? I'm still convinced that Brooke and I could have made it work. And that our love would have prevailed.

Massimo: Ridge, come on. You know? You just know better than that. If you were to raise Dominick's son with Brooke, the Marone family would be in chaos! Worse than the chaos that the Forrester family has lived with for years.

Ridge: Massimo, my kids have already been thrown into chaos, okay? I don't think they should have to suffer because of one night -- one night that Nick was pathetic enough to exploit Brooke in the lowest point in her life!


Caitlin: Dad.

Hector: Hi.

Caitlin: Hi.

Hector: Did you feel that?

Caitlin: Feel what?

Hector: The Santa Ana winds! And you know what high winds plus dry heat equal?

Caitlin: Brushfires?

Hector: Mm-hmm.

Caitlin: You on call tonight?

Hector: Yeah. Tonight and tomorrow.

Caitlin: Well, I hope there's not another brush fire in Simi Valley. And this weather has just been --

Hector: I know this academy. It's a prep school in Beverly Hills. Where did you get this?


[ Knock on door ]

Brooke: Come in!

Rick: Hey. Hey, I was just checking on you to see if you're okay. It's really blowing out there, isn't it?

Brooke: Yeah, it is.

Rick: I heard about your fall. I wish you would have called me when you were in the hospital. Are you okay?

Brooke: No.

Rick: It's not the baby?

Brooke: No, it's not the baby.

Rick: But --

Brooke: But this is just killing me, not being able to be with ridge. Especially after seeing him tonight.

Rick: Well, of course you're upset, mom. You've had a hell of a day.

Brooke: I'm so confused. I have this beautiful life growing inside of me. And yet -- another part of me is dying.

Rick: Hey. No, no -- mom, don't talk like that. You're a survivor.

Brooke: And I'm really trying to do the right thing. But Taylor's children feel like I've abandoned them. And I really don't know how I'm gonna live with that.

Jackie: I'm sorry for what you're going through, Ridge. I really am. But if today has shown us anything, it's that Brooke and Nicky are having a child together. And we must all learn to accept that.

Ridge: That would be my cue to leave.

Massimo: Wait, wait, wait, wait -- hold it. Hold it, Ridge, please.

Nick: Oh, mother! Hey, there you are. I got a little photo of our new captain here -- ten little fingers, ten little toes.

Jackie: Nicky --

Nick: What a handsome devil. And I want everyone to know --

Jackie: Nicky --

Nick: What?


Brooke: If you could see them, Rick -- Steffy, phoebe, even Thomas -- the way they look at me.

Rick: Mom -- right now, you need to focus on your future and the future of the child that you're carrying.

Brooke: I am. I want to live my life according to a sense of morals and values for this baby. Although it's not going to be easy. You know how much I love ridge. But he's going to grow bitter. And he's going to resent this baby.

Rick: Probably.

Brooke: Which is why I have to move on with dignity, take responsibility for my actions. If only this child were Ridge's.

Rick: But it's not, mom.

Brooke: You're right.

Rick: Look, it's -- it's not the end of the world. I mean -- what about Nick? He cares about you, mom. And you once cared about him.

Brooke: I don't want Nick. I want what I've always wanted. I want Ridge -- a life with Ridge, a baby with Ridge --

Rick: Mom, it has never worked out between you and Ridge. Maybe it's time to try something else.

Brooke: You mean someone else.


Caitlin: It's a friend's.

Hector: What friend of yours goes to Roxbury Academy?

Caitlin: Thomas.

Hector: Who?

Caitlin: Thomas. The guy you met the other night at insomnia.

Hector: I can't imagine the two of you having anything in common.

Caitlin: Well, you're wrong about that.

Hector: Caitlin, a boy like that won't even give you the time of day. And just wait till he finds out where your family's from. And I'm not just saying this to hurt your feelings, okay? I'm saying this to protect you from being hurt.

Caitlin: You've got it all wrong, dad. Thomas isn't like that.

Hector: Honey -- I just don't want to see you set yourself up for disappointment, that's all.

Caitlin: I'm not. We're not even dating. You need to chill out, dad.

Hector: I will chill out as long as you stay away from him. That's what's best.

Caitlin: You're not being fair. I mean, if you just got to know Thomas, then you would realize --

Hector: I know enough.

Caitlin: That his family has money?

Hector: Caity, the whole world wants to be rich and famous. But you're better than that. You want to make a difference in the world, and I couldn't be prouder.

Caitlin: Me? How about you? You risk your life to save the lives of others -- rescuing them from fires, helping them when they have nowhere else to turn. You're amazing.

Hector: I want the same thing for you, honey.

Caitlin: I know, dad.

Hector: You know? I mean, that's why we're here, to help one another. Especially those that are less fortunate than we are. I just don't think your friend Thomas even has a clue.


Nick: Maybe this isn't the best time for this.

Ridge: Thank you for your concern. But I can't stay here -- not with him around.

Nick: Forrester, wait a minute.

Ridge: Why should I stick around? So you can rub all this in my face some more? You go to hell!

Nick: Hey, Forrester, we've had this talk. No more apologies, remember? I'm gonna be a father. And my mother and I are excited about it.

Ridge: Oh, good for you and your mother.

Nick: She hasn't done anything wrong, so leave her out of this!

Jackie: Okay! Stop the bickering!

Massimo: All right. Come on, boys. Jacqueline is right.

Jackie: Ridge -- you have got three beautiful children, who you had with a devoted wife -- Taylor. My son, he just wants the same opportunity with the mother of his child. Don't begrudge him that. Can't you find it in your heart to allow this child to be raised by his two natural parents and relish the time that you have with your own children and all of the memories that you shared with Taylor?

Ridge: I don't need to be told how to live my life. Especially not by you!

Massimo: All right, stop it, Ridge. Just stop it! I am not gonna tolerate your attacking Jacqueline. She is not the enemy here!


Hector: What could you possibly have in common with this boy?

Caitlin: Thomas lost his mother, just like I did, dad. We get each other.

Hector: Sweetheart, the truth is that you two grew up in totally different worlds.

Caitlin: And I want to broaden mine. I mean, isn't that what you're always saying?

Hector: I'm just trying to look out for you.

Caitlin: I know, dad.

Hector: All right. Look -- I gotta get to the station. My shift starts. Jimmy's spending the night at his friend's house tonight, so you'll have plenty of time to do your homework.

Caitlin: Finally. Some peace and quiet around here.

Hector: Mm-hmm. And don't forget to lock the --

Caitlin: Double lock all the doors when you're gone. I know.

Hector: I'm gonna get my jacket.

[ Knock on door ]

Thomas: I'm probably the last person you expected to see --

Hector: I'm leaving now.

Caitlin: Bye, dad.

Hector: Bye, honey. Listen. Keep your fingers crossed those winds die down.

Caitlin: I will.


Rick: I know how you feel. You have loved Ridge all of your life. And it took an incredible amount of strength to let him go. But I also know that you have been living with the guilt of raising Bridget and I without our father. And this child deserves to be raised by his natural father -- who happens to adore him and you.

Brooke: If you're saying nick is the one for me --

Rick: I'm saying -- don't dismiss the possibility just yet.

Brooke: No, I'm gonna stick with my decision and let nick be a real father to this baby. I tore through the Forrester family like a hurricane. I turned everybody against each other. And Ridge and Thorne -- they're never going to be as close as they used to be. I am not going to do that to the Marones. It's about putting the needs of my children ahead of my own. And I should have learned that a long time ago. Taylor would have done that. She was an amazing woman.

Rick: You know what, mom? You are an incredible and strong woman, too. Don't worry. You'll find the answers that you're looking for. Okay?

Brooke: Okay.

Rick: But not until you get some more rest. You've had a really long day.

Brooke: Well, thanks for checking on me, honey.

Rick: I'll talk to you later, okay?


Thomas: You sure know how to make a guest feel welcome.

Caitlin: My dad was just leaving.

Thomas: I just came over to get my jacket.

Caitlin: Oh, of course. Hang on. Something else on your mind?

Thomas: It's just -- my day really sucked. So I felt like talking to someone. Since you were there, I thought you'd understand. Guess I was wrong.

Caitlin: Wait, Thomas. Come in. Please.

Thomas: Today at the hospital --

Caitlin: Was really rough on you guys, huh?

Thomas: When they showed us the ultrasound -- you should have seen the look on dad's face. It was like, for that one moment, the baby was his -- until reality slapped him in the face again. After that, he totally bottomed out.

Caitlin: I don't think your dad's the only one.

Thomas: The girls and I miss Brooke, too. We should have been a family. If only that baby were dad's. If only there were some way.


Massimo: Yes, Ridge. Your life was changed forever. But not because of Jacqueline. It changed when the paternity test results were read that night and Dominick was proven to be the father of Brooke's child.

Ridge: How many times do I have to hear this lecture? Huh?

Massimo: Until you finally listen to it and understand it, Ridge! Look -- right now, you are still attached to Brooke. And in time, I hope -- I pray -- that you will find your way through it, the same as Dominick has had to find his way to his son.

Ridge: Well, yeah, I'm sure that was real hard for him.

Massimo: However -- I am not going to stand or tolerate this animosity for another second. Okay? It has to end. It must end for everyone's sake. Dominick, put your hand out. Ridge, take it. You are declaring a truce -- effective immediately.

Ridge: Never! I'll never accept this bastard!

Massimo: Ridge --

Ridge: Get out of my way! Get out of my way! Logan, what the hell is happening to us?


[ Wind howling ]

[ Brooke remembering ]

Nick: Brooke! What are you doing here?

Jackie: It says that you're the father, Nicky. Nicky -- Nicky --

Brooke: Ridge, why is this happening to us?

Taylor: I'll tell you why, Brooke.

Brooke: Taylor?
