Priscilla: Samantha. Please don't make a scene. I realize you're distraught about losing your little dog.

Samantha: It's about much more than that, mother. We both know it.

Priscilla: Yes, well. It's not the time to get into it now. We're about to have dinner with the Forresters.

Samantha: No, you are. I'm going back to the guest house.

Helen: Excuse me, Mrs. Forrester -- dinner is served.

Stephanie: Thank you, Helen.

Priscilla: There. You see, darling? The Forrester’s have gone to all this trouble. It would be rude not to join them.

Eric: Priscilla, it's okay. If Sam wants some time alone, that's okay.

Samantha: Actually, my mother's right. My mother is always right.

Priscilla: So. Shall we? Suddenly, I'm quite famished.

Eric: Yes.

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

Paul: I need that report, Kocinski.

Kocinski: I'm on it, okay?

Paul: You said that two hours ago.

Kocinski: Yeah, yeah.

Thomas: Excuse me.

Paul: Yeah.

Thomas: I'm looking for Hector Ramirez.

Paul: Friend of his? Weekend tenant?

Thomas: What?

Paul: Never mind. What can I do for you?

Thomas: Is Mr. Ramirez around? I have something I really need to talk to him about.

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

Nick: No. No. I don't do business that way. And that's not how we do business at Marone. Now you got the facts in front of you, crunch the numbers. That's your job. Crunch the numbers and make it work. I'll be at my desk waiting for your call. All night if need be. The bottom line is, we have to get this resolved.

Rick: Sounds like it could be a long night.

Nick: Yeah. Could be. But that's my job. I do the best I can.

Rick: Which is first rate from everything I hear.

Nick: You been checking up on me?

Rick: That's not necessary. I know everything that I need to know.

Nick: Do you? What's that?

Rick: I know that you're good for my mother.

Nick: What did you say?

Rick: I said I know that you're good for my mother.

Nick: Well, your mother and that child are my top priority. I try to do the best I can by them.

Rick: Glad to hear it.

Nick: Really?

Rick: Look, I've tried to stay out of this -- not complicate things more than they already are. But for the record, I support your relationship with my mother, Nick -- 100%.

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

Priscilla: So after Samantha's father and I divorced, traveling abroad seemed preferable to staying in New York nursing a broken heart. Not that Preston wasted any time finding anybody else. Then again, neither did I.

Stephanie: Sam, are you all right?

Priscilla: Of course she's all right. Aren't you, darling? Aren't you, Samantha?

Priscilla: Well, I'm stunned! Kit having a baby at her age? By that boy toy of hers, no less? I mean, how scandalous is that?

Bridget: I don't think it was very scandalous at all. They were in love, happily married. She wanted that baby, very much.

Stephanie: There? You see, old friend. They times, they are a-changing.

Priscilla: And not necessarily for the better. In my day --

Samantha: Appearances were everything. God forbid, you should do something to bring shame on your family. Or worse, let anyone ever found out about it. Right, mother?

Priscilla: You know, darling? I was thinking. I know how much you're going to miss dear, departed Pucci. So I thought we would look for another dog before I leave.

Samantha: What?

Priscilla: I'll call a few kennels. Maybe we could even find a new Pomeranian.

Samantha: Oh, my god! I can't believe this. You're doing the same thing you did all those years ago. You're trying to replace --

Priscilla: Samantha, stop! Don't say another word!

Samantha: Why? You're afraid our dirty family secret won't be so secret anymore? Well, guess what, mother? These people have been more family to me than mine ever was. So why shouldn't they know? I know you all thought that I overreacted when Pucci died. But she was much more than a dog to me. She -- she was my baby. And when I lost her -- just all of the pain and the guilt of losing another baby came back to me -- my own baby girl.

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

Paul: You have a beef with Hector?

Thomas: No, I just need to talk to him. What did you mean when you asked me if I was one of his "weekend tenants"?

Paul: Hector's our guy that's most likely to put his life on the line in a fire. He's the first one in. And he is the last one out. He's also the guy that makes sure families have a place to go if they lose their homes. Heck, he even adopted a kid whose folks died in a fire. You met Jimmy?

Thomas: Wait -- Caitlin has a brother?

Paul: You didn't know?

Thomas: I guess he wasn't there when I stopped by.

Paul: Well, he really looks up to him. So kid -- what's your beef?

Hector: Paul. We have got to replace those class 2 safety harnesses. A couple of the guys -- what? Thomas. What're you doing here?

Paul: I was just bending his ear about you, old buddy.

Thomas: You're really respected around here, Mr. Ramirez. No wonder your daughter has --

Hector: Hey, I'm still on duty, Thomas. So whatever this is all about is gonna wait.

Thomas: You don't want to talk to me?

Hector: If it's about Caitlin, you know where I stand.

Thomas: Yeah, I do. But I think you're making a mistake, sir -- a big mistake -- by not letting her stay on at Forrester.

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

Nick: Wow. I don't know what to say.

Rick: Well, I take it you assumed I was in Ridge's camp?

Nick: Well, Forrester has brought your mother a lot of happiness over the years, you know?

Rick: And he's also brought her a lot of heartache.

Nick: Well, unfortunately, that heartache usually goes along with happiness in life. I'd never do anything to hurt your mom.

Rick: I believe you. And more importantly, so does my mom.

Nick: I don't really know how your mother feels about me. But I know she has this thing with Forrester she just can't seem to break.

Rick: And she's not going to break it, Nick. Unless you help her.

Nick: It's a little awkward to -- I appreciate your support, don't get me wrong, it's just --

Rick: But you're taking cues from my mom.

Nick: Well, I've said all along I'm not gonna push your mom. I'm not gonna pressure her in any way. And I haven't.

Rick: I respect that. But also, you have brought something to my mother's life that she's never had before.

Nick: Oh, god. I'm almost afraid to ask.

Rick: I'm talking about balance. Look, I know what it's like to grow up without your father around the house. This child that you guys are having --

Nick: -- Is not gonna have to deal with that. Because I'm determined to be a part of this boy's life, no matter what.

Rick: Which says everything about the kind of man you are. But I'm also worried about my mother. She deserves to be with someone who loves her and only her -- someone who can teach her to have fun again.

Nick: I'm a fun guy, you know.

Rick: Yeah. Yeah, I know.

Nick: Have you told your mother any of this that you're telling me?

Rick: Problem is, I could say it 1,000 times and she still won't get it. Nonetheless, I do believe that my mother's happiness lies with this child. And with this child's father. But unless you take some action -- look -- like I said before, you've been really patient, which is what my mother needed. But now she needs something else -- something more. And I think you know exactly what that is. So if I were you, I'd make my move, Nick. The sooner, the better.

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

[ Samantha sobbing ]

Samantha: I never told anybody until now. Only my mother and father knew.

Priscilla: Which is the way it should have stayed. There's nothing to be gained by --

Samantha: By what? By admitting I was pregnant when I was a teenager? By giving myself to a boy that I loved and who I thought loved me? I mean, what could be more shameful then that, right? At least, that's how you and daddy made me feel.

Priscilla: It was a difficult time for all of us, Samantha. Your father and I were sick with worry.

Samantha: Yeah. You were worried that somebody at daddy's firm might find out. Or worse -- the country club. That's why you dragged me away to New York so quickly. You couldn't risk a scandal.

Priscilla: It was a different era, Samantha. People weren't as -- we did what we thought was best. We didn't want you ruining the rest of your life.

Samantha: No! You didn't want me ruining your life -- by your socialite friends finding out. It's why you imprisoned my in that townhouse in Manhattan. And you acted as if everything was just fine. Except it wasn't fine. I wasn't fine. I was lonely. And I was scared. I was carrying your grandchild. A child I wanted with all my heart, mother.

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

Nick: It's gotta feel magical and spontaneous. I know it's not going to be easy to pull off, but I really need you to give me your best shot. Just get back to me as soon as you can and let me know. Thanks.

Hector: Did you come here to start trouble?

Thomas: No. That's the last thing I want.

Hector: Then what?

Thomas: I'm just trying to understand where you're coming from.

Hector: I think I made that perfectly clear to my daughter.

Thomas: Only you didn't, not really. Caitlin's still isn't sure why you're so against her interning at Forrester. Neither am I.

Hector: I got my reasons. Good ones. Listen, kid. It took a lot of guts to come here today. And I admire you for that, but --

Thomas: But you're Caitlin's dad and you know what's best for her.

Hector: I love my daughter more than anything in this world. And I have spent my life trying to make sure that -- I just want to protect her.

Thomas: Protect her from what? That's what I don't understand. I mean, I realize in order to raise such an amazing daughter you have to be one heck of a dad. But as much as I'm trying to understand what's really going on here, you're not giving me much to work with.

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

Caitlin: Hey, Mister Kay.

Mister Kay: Hey, Caitlin.

Caitlin: Have you seen my dad?

Mister Kay: Yeah, he's in the office.

Caitlin: Okay, cool. Thanks.

Mister Kay: Good to see you.

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

Thomas: You know my dad, don't you? Do you have a problem with him? Is that why you don't want Caitlin interning at Forrester?

Hector: Let's cut to the chase, okay? You say you're concerned about Caitlin's "career." I think there's more to it than that. I think you're here because you're crazy about my daughter. All right, then. I'm crazy about her, too. Maybe that's something we have in common.

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

Priscilla: Samantha, you have got to stop this now.

Samantha: Stop what? Stop remembering? I'll always remember that day. That day you and daddy took me to that clinic outside of New York. The day my baby was delivered by C-section while I was unconscious. I'll never forget waking up -- expecting to see her. And hearing you tell me there were complications -- that she was stillborn. My precious baby. I never got to see her. I never got to say good-bye.

Priscilla: You'd lost a lot of blood, Samantha. We were afraid we were going to lose you . And, in a way, we did. You went into a deep depression. You barely ate or slept for weeks. Stephanie, we got her the best doctors in Manhattan. But no one could reach her -- until Pucci. That dog did more than any doctor could do. More than Preston and I could ever do. He brought you out of that depression, Samantha.

[ Priscilla sighs ] After that, you went to school -- then you got a scholarship. And you became a brilliantly talented designer. That couldn't have happened if you were raising a child. So you see? Something good did come out of this.

[ Samantha sobs ]

Samantha: How can you say that? Nothing good came out of losing my baby. I loved her, mother. She was part of me for nine months. I wanted her. I still feel empty inside. And that's an ache that will never go away.

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

Announcer: On the next "The Bold and the Beautiful" --

Sally: This horse has definitely run it's last lap. We're quitting.

Nick: I'm going to be straight with you. I'm asking you. Give us a chance. I believe in my heart that there's something to be had here. Let it happen.

Priscilla: Why did you blurt out our family secret in front of the Forresters' last night?

Samantha: Did I embarrass you, mother? Did I ruin your perfect little world?

Priscilla: Samantha, stop being so dramatic.

Samantha: No, I'm being honest. Like I should have been a long time ago.
