The Bold and The Beautiful Transcript Thursday 3/25/04
Nick: I'll tell you what's wrong --
Ridge: No, you're not going to tell me anything, nick! I know exactly what's going on here!
Nick: You crossed the line taking this ring from her.
Ridge: You crossed the line giving it to her!
Nick: I proposed to the mother of my child.
Ridge: Who a little over a month ago was wearing my wedding band!
Nick: Well, she wasn't wearing it when I proposed!
Ridge: You're just not seeing it, are you, nick, huh? I can't really blame you though. It's gotta put a bit of a pit in your stomach, knowing you're proposing to a woman who's in love with somebody else.
Massimo: All right, all right. That is enough.
Ridge: No, massimo. I want to know! What the hell are you thinking, nick, huh? Do you really believe that brooke could be satisfied settling for you?
Nick: I want what's best for the future of my child. And brooke being with you is not the answer.
Samantha: Hey, brooke. I thought that was your car in the driveway.
Samantha: Is stephanie around?
Brooke: No, she had to run out. She'll be back soon.
Samantha: Oh, okay. Do you mind if we wait with you?
Brooke: No. Who's this?
Samantha: This is annie. I don't know if you know, but pucci died.
Brooke: Oh. No, I didn't know that. I'm sorry.
Samantha: I was pretty devastated. But then today, thomas and caitlin came by with this little friend for me.
Brooke: He's an amazing kid, isn't he?
Samantha: Oh, yeah. And I think he's met his match in caitlin.
Samantha: She's an intern over at forrester. She's so sweet.
Brooke: You know her pretty well?
Samantha: No. No, but she's the kind of person that you'd like to get to know better.
Jimmy: So you dove in and pulled her out of a fire?
Hector: It's my job, jimmy.
Jimmy: You say that like it's nothing.
Hector: It's what I was trained to do. Look, if paul had seen her, he would have done the same thing.
Jimmy: But he didn'T. That girl's alive because of you.
Hector: Her name is amber.
Jimmy: I'll bet amber thinks you're a real hero. I know I still do. I just have one question.
Hector: What's that, little man?
Jimmy: Please tell me you're not going to adopt her, too. Because one big sister is all I can stand.
Hector: Amber's a grown woman. You are just a little guy.
Hector: So where is your sister? She didn't go back to forrester, did she?
Jimmy: No. They went to give away one of the puppies.
Jimmy: Yeah, one of her friends came over -- that new guy, thomas.
Thomas: Thanks. Here you go.
Caitlin: Thank you.
Thomas: I propose a toast.
Caitlin: To what?
Thomas: To samantha and annie.
Caitlin: Okay. Samantha did seem pretty happy, didn't she?
Thomas: Yeah. Getting her a new puppy really cheered her up.
Caitlin: I know, and you know, at first, I thought it wasn't really gonna work. Because she got kind of emotional talking about pucci.
Thomas: You were great, all that stuff you said about not wanting to replace her dog.
Caitlin: Well, pucci was like family. You can't replace family. But if you open your heart, you can always make room for one more.
Thomas: Sounds like something your dad would say.
Caitlin: Yeah. We talked about it a lot when he adopted jimmy.
Thomas: It's like with my dad and brooke. Nobody can ever replace our mom. But now, brooke's a part of our family, too. At least, she used to be.
Caitlin: Well, no one can replace her either, thomas. But that doesn't mean that your dad won't find somebody else.
Hector: Thomas was here?
Jimmy: Yeah. He stopped by while you were at the hospital.
Hector: What did he want?
Jimmy: Nothing. They were just hanging out.
Hector: With you?
Jimmy: Yeah. They were playing with the puppies in the living room.
Jimmy: Don't worry about it. Nobody's making moves on my big sister while I'm around.
Hector: You're looking out for her?
Jimmy: You bet I am. But I think she's okay with thomas.
Hector: Jimmy, good breeding does not always equal good manners, you know?
Jimmy: He seemed like a nice guy.
Hector: Well, your sister seems to think so.
Jimmy: Yeah, he scored major points today.
Hector: How's that?
Jimmy: Some lady he knows lost her dog, so they took a puppy over to his granddad's to cheer her up.
Hector: They went to the forrester house?
Jimmy: She lives in the guest house. She must be a relative or something.
Thomas: Dad's not really interested in meeting somebody else right now.
Caitlin: Maybe he already has.
Thomas: You mean samantha?
Caitlin: Well, they grew up together.
Caitlin: They have a history.
Thomas: Okay, she had a crush on him when she was a kid.
Caitlin: So there's nothing there?
Thomas: My dad is still hoping things work out with brooke.
Caitlin: It seems like you are, too.
Thomas: I just want him to be happy.
Caitlin: But you wouldn't mind if he had a crush on samantha.
Thomas: I think samantha's great, and phoebe and steffi do, too.
Caitlin: I've only met her once, but from what you've told me, she sounds like she'd make a great mom.
Thomas: The girls are gonna need that. Dad's just not around as much as he wants to be.
Caitlin: He misses brooke.
Thomas: It's all he can think about.
Caitlin: That's sad.
Thomas: Tell me about it. At least we could do something for sam.
Caitlin: You want to do something to help your dad out, too?
Thomas: Sure, but how? I had an easier time talking to yours.
Thomas: Dad just doesn't want to lay this on us -- you know, me and the girls. He's trying to protect us.
Caitlin: My dad does that, too.
Thomas: Who do they think they're fooling? We know when something's wrong.
Samantha: Brooke, are you okay?
Brooke: I just have a lot on my mind.
Samantha: Well, if you'd rather be alone --
Brooke: No. No, stay. I'm driving myself crazy.
Samantha: Do you wanna talk about it?
Brooke: I should be thrilled. Nick proposed.
Samantha: You're engaged?
Brooke: I haven't given him an answer yet.
Brooke: I just want to make sure that this child has the best life possible.
Samantha: Yeah, you owe it to that little one to make the right choice.
Brooke: I have to be sure.
Samantha: And you're not?
Brooke: Nick is a wonderful man, and he really does love me. He'd be a great father to hope and to this baby.
Samantha: But you're still in love with ridge. Does he know about the proposal? And I guess I don't have to ask you how he reacted.
Brooke: Everything started falling apart the day that I read the paternity test results. I didn't want to admit it. But I kept trying to hold it together, and it just --
[ Brooke sighs ]
Samantha: I'm sorry. I mean, really, I am. I know how devoted you were to each other.
Brooke: He's not ready to give up.
Samantha: Does that surprise you?
Samantha: It doesn't make this decision any easier, does it?
Ridge: Brooke is never going to marry you, nick. If she wanted to be your wife, she would've said yes, but she didn'T. And you know what? She's never going to. Fried.
Ridge: You're living in a
fantasy world, nick, if you
think this is what
Nick: Did she say
that it wasn't?
Ridge: She didn't have to.
Nick: Did you ask?
Massimo: Look, ridge, you can't see the way you're acting --
Ridge: What, you think I'm irrational?
Massimo: This is between your brother and brooke.
Ridge: There wouldn't be anything between them if he just respected my marriage! Brooke and I were on our honeymoon, massimo. We were happy. If he hadn't flown down to puerto vista --
Massimo: He flew down to help you.
Ridge: So what? I'm just supposed to stand by while he shanghai's my life?
Massimo: Your marriage has been annulled, ridge, okay? She is having a child with him.
Ridge: You're taking his side?
Massimo: No, I'm not taking sides. I'm trying to make you see reason.
Ridge: He has already ripped my marriage apart. Don't let him do the same to this family.
Massimo: You're the one dividing this family, ridge. Ridge, ridge, ridge, ridge -- I love you, ridge, and I cannot stand to see you going through this kind of pain. But you're only making it worse, harboring this hatred, lashing out at your brother. I can't let you do it!
Ridge: What, so I'm the bad guy here?! I'm the problem?! Everything was fine, massimo -- everybody was fine until nick and jackie showed up in L.A.
Massimo: Look, don't bring
jacqueline into this, okay?
Ridge: She never wanted
me with brooke anyway.
Massimo: Hey, I don't care how upset you are! Jacqueline is my wife!
Ridge: You'd do anything to protect her, won't you, massimo, huh? Even lash out at your own family. Let me ask you something. How would you react if somebody told you, "forget about jackie. Just forget about jackie and go love somebody else"? How would you react, huh?
Massimo: Your -- your first loyalty is always to blood. Nothing is more important than family -- nothing.
Ridge: That's where you
and I differ. Because nothing -- nothing will ever make me give up on brooke.
Brooke: I probably shouldn't be discussing this.
Samantha: I'm not judging you, brooke. This is complicated. You're trying to do the right thing.
Brooke: I thought I knew what that was.
Samantha: Well, if you need anybody to talk to -- well, look. I know, that it's no secret that I wouldn't be heartbroken if you and nick sailed off into the sunset together. But ridge would be.
Brooke: But I wouldn't have to worry, because you'd be right there to help him, wouldn't you?
Samantha: As his friend. If he needed me.
Brooke: I know how you feel about him, samantha.
Samantha: And I know how he feels about you. Love like that doesn't just disappear, brooke. It can't be replaced. It leaves a hole that might never be filled.
Caitlin: Thanks for the coffee.
Thomas: Thanks for going over to sam'S.
Caitlin: Thanks for inviting me.
Thomas: We could keep this up all day.
Caitlin: I wish.
Thomas: So, um -- do you want to go over to my house?
Caitlin: Um -- my dad's coming home soon. I probably shouldn'T.
Thomas: Right, um -- am I gonna to see you at work?
Caitlin: Probably not.
Thomas: Your dad still hasn't made up his mind?
Caitlin: I'm not holding my breath.
Thomas: But there's still a chance? Maybe I got through to him.
Caitlin: It was sweet of you to try.
Thomas: Yeah. That's me. Sweet.
Caitlin: Yes, you are.
Thomas: Thank your brother for the puppy.
Caitlin: I will.
Thomas: Your dad would be proud of what you did for sam today. Are you going to tell him about it?
Caitlin: I think I've kept enough secrets from him.
Thomas: You don't think he'll mind?
Caitlin: Well, why would he? We did something nice for a family friend.
Thomas: A friend of my family.
Caitlin: Hey. She's my friend, too, now.
Thomas: And you think I'm sweet.
Caitlin: I'll call you tomorrow.
Thomas: Not if I call you first.
Caitlin: Probably not a good idea.
Thomas: I don't wanna get you in trouble.
Caitlin: If I'm grounded, I won't be able to see you at all.
Thomas: I couldn't stand that.
Caitlin: My dad could show up any minute.
Thomas: You want me to go?
Thomas: Me neither.
Caitlin: You should probably go.
Thomas: Yeah. Bye.
Brooke: You really should work on that pep talk.
Samantha: I'm not telling you anything you don't already know.
Brooke: Exactly. I know what this is doing to ridge. And to his family. And I hate it.
Samantha: And you want to do something about it.
Brooke: Yes. And I thought mae if I were to accept nick's proposal, then we could all move on with our lives. But when I told ridge --
Samantha: He was upset.
Brooke: I don't want to hurt him anymore. I have to do something. I need to resolve this before my baby's born.
Samantha: Your child's future is at stake. That's the issue here. Not ridge's feelings or his family's well-being. Never forget that.
Brooke: I haven'T.
Samantha: Don't let it overwhelm you. It may get tougher. But you just have to keep going. You just have to put one foot in front of the other. And you will get through it.
Brooke: Sounds like you're speaking from experience.
Samantha: Every life has its challenges. And you're facing a big one.
Brooke: I can handle it. But I do worry. Because as hard as it is for me, it's going to be so much worse for ridge.
Nick I didn't chart this course, forrester. I didn't set out to turn your life upside down. In fact, when we took that paternity test, I told you I wanted you to be the father. And I meant it from my heart. But it didn't work out that way. Things changed, and not just for you. I'm gonna be a father. And I have a responsibility to my child and his mother.
Ridge: Oh, right -- right. This has nothing to do with your feelings for brooke -- you're just doing your duty, hey, nick?
Nick I'm doing what best for my child. That's what I'm thinking about. That's what we should all be thinking about here!
Ridge: Yeah, you'd like that, wouldn't you?
Massimo: You're brother makes a point. All right, ridge? We're wasting time bickering about this.
Nick: I know you're hurting, forrester. I get it. I feel your pain, and I'm sorry for the things that have happened. I can't fix that, though. I can only ask you to try to get past this. Because this is gonna wind up hurting my kid, and I can't let that happen. I'm trying to build a life for this boy -- a safe place for him. A home. A family. Security. Stability. All the things I didn't have when I grew up. Now, you look me in the eye and you tell me what's wrong with that. Tell me, ridge. What's wrong with me wanting to give my child the kind of life that you've given yours?
