Massimo: There are certain things that a man cannot allow. People who betray me pay a price. You understand?

Deacon: Yeah.

Massimo: No, you don't.

Deacon: Whoa, whoa! Massimo, take it easy! Massimo.

Massimo: But you will. Prepare to die.

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

Brooke: Eric! Hi. What a nice surprise.

Eric: Oh, I'm sorry. I see you already have visitors.

Brooke: No, I was just putting Hope down for a nap. Come in.

Eric: I guess hope is exhausted. From what I hear, she's had a very busy day.

Brooke: Word travels fast!

Eric: It does. You signed adoption papers?

Brooke: As soon as we're married, Hope will be a Marone.

Eric: Yeah. Well I have to admit, I was hoping that you and hope would always be Forresters. And this little guy as well.

Brooke: I wanted that, too. So much so, that I convinced myself that's what was happening. How is Ridge?

Eric: I think you know the answer to that.

Brooke: I just keep hurting him. I don't want to do that, anymore.

Eric: You know what? Ridge is back at Forrester, where he belongs. And he has his family to help him get through it. So do you by the way.

Brooke: Yeah, the Marones have been great.

Brooke: I'm not talking about the Marones. You will always be a part of my family, as far as I'm concerned.

Brooke: Really?

Eric: Yeah. Oh, and I think I can prove that, right now. Pat. Thanks very much. I don't hand these out to just anybody.

[ Brooke gasps and giggles ]

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

Nick: Quite a day, huh?

Jackie: And it's not over yet.

Nick: Do you realize that since I've met Brooke -- I've becoming a Marone, gotten engaged, have a son on the way and now I've adopted a daughter. Huh?

Jackie: Well, that's nice, Nicky.

Nick: "Nice"? The drapes are "nice" mother. This is my life. I was expecting at least a "swell" out of you. Isn't this what you've always wanted?

Jackie: Darling, I'm sorry. It's what I've dreamed for you -- and more.

Nick: I thought you'd be a bit more excited about this.

Jackie: I am excited. I'm just --

Nick: Just what? What is it?

Jackie: I just don't want anything to go wrong.

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

Deacon: Massimo, please.

Massimo: You're scared. That's good. Feel it! Remember it. Because this is what happens if someone tries to cross me.

Deacon: I -- I haven't done anything to you.

Massimo: I know. And now you never will. Welcome to the family.

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

Brooke: You made this for me?

Eric: Yes I did. I hope you don't mind.

Brooke: Mind? No, I don't mind. It's stunning.

Eric: Good, then, I would say it's fitting.

Brooke: The way I'm growing -- I hope it does fit!

Eric: Not to worry. I left lots of room for expansion. Maybe not quite enough, but some.

Brooke: Eric, you didn't have to do this.

Eric: No, but I wanted to, I know it must've felt when Stephanie turned against you -- but for what it's worth, you still have my support. You and ridge are going your separate ways, and I think that's very sad. But it doesn't change how I feel.

Brooke: Me, either. I love all of you. And I always will.

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

Nick: Wrong? What exactly do you see going wrong here, mother?

Jackie: Nothing. For you and Brooke, nothing.

Nick: Oh. So this is still about the old man being mad about you for staying out all night. Well, what do think he's going to do? Make you wear a big scarlet "A" to the wedding?

Jackie: Please don't joke!

Nick: You are really upset about this.

Jackie: Nicky, I just found him again --

Nick: Well, it's not like your marriage is ending, or anything. He'll get over it. He's just making you sweat it out a little bit.

Jackie: I wish it were that simple.

Nick: Well, it will be. Where is he?

Jackie: He's in the study. With Deacon.

Nick: What the hell's that all about?

Jackie: I don't know.

Nick: It's not like they have anything in common. Probably just asking him for another chance.

Jackie: What?

Nick: For a job.

Jackie: Oh.

Nick: Can't really help but feel sorry for the guy.

Jackie: Well, don't. The man is trouble, Nicky.

Nick: Mother what is this all about? What, do you think he's a bad influence? The old man can handle a small fry like Deacon Sharpe. As a matter of fact, deacon's the one you ought to be worried about.

Jackie: You know what I don't understand? Why you had to invite him here in the first place.

Nick: He's trying to fit in, mother. So cut him a little slack.

Jackie: I think you've done enough of that for everybody. I mean, Nicky. What were you thinking? Welcoming him into the family?

Nick: He's Hope's father. I want him to be part of her life.

Jackie: Yes, I know. It's just that you don't know what he is capable of. I mean, Nicky, he could turn her world upside-down.

Nick: When did you become such a pessimist? Bottom line is I didn't know my father, growing up. And I don't want that for Hope. Now I love you, but you're just going to have to get used to it. You're going to be seeing a lot more of Deacon Sharpe.

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

Deacon: This is how you treat your family, right?

Massimo: I need to know I can trust you.

Deacon: You could've just asked. I've told you, over and over --

Massimo: Words! Are meaningless. Actions are what matter. Today's your lucky day, Deacon. Because I'm going to show you how you can prove your loyalty. I've got job for you -- it's a very important job.

Deacon: A job?

Massimo: Yeah. You did say you'd do anything to be part of my organization.

Deacon: That was before you put a gun in my face. Yeah.

Massimo: Okay. It's your one and only chance, Deacon. This assignment is one of a very sensitive nature. It is going to require cunning, discretion, and above all, loyalty. It struck me today that maybe you were the right man for the job. But if you're not interested-

Deacon: Go on, tell me about the assignment.

Massimo: You tell me. Are you in or you out?

Deacon: I'm in.

Massimo: Congratulations, Deacon. You're one of us.

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

Jackie: What is it with Deacon? He's charmed even you.

Nick: Don't be so hard on the guy, mother. You barely know him.

Jackie: I know all I need to know.

Nick: Now you sound like Eric Forrester.

Jackie: Eric Forrester?! What does Eric got to do with this?

Nick: Well, obviously he's colored your opinion of Deacon. Eric was never able to give that man a second chance. I just happen to think this family is a bit more charitable. Aren't we mother? See you.

Jackie: What could they be doing in there?!

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

Deacon: A hell of an initiation ceremony you've got there, Massimo.

Massimo: I trust I made my point.

Deacon: So what's this job?

Massimo: It concerns my wife.

Deacon: What about your wife?

Massimo: You two are already friends, sort of.

Deacon: I wouldn't go that far.

Massimo: You'll go further. I want you to get her confidence. I want you to get her to be able to confide in you. And then I want you to come and report back to me.

Deacon: What the hell do you want me spying on your wife for?

Massimo: Why do you suppose? She's been lying to me. The other night she stayed out all night. Claimed she was drunk, too humiliated to come home and face me.

Deacon: You know, I mean, it could happen. God knows I know I've done it before.

Massimo: I have no doubt she was drunk. She seems to be making a habit of it, these days. But there's more to it. She wasn't alone -- and I want you to find out who she was --

Deacon: Whoa, whoa, whoa. I am not your guy, no.

Massimo: I suppose I could hire a detective. But I think I've got the right guy.

Deacon: Massimo, your wife went to bat for me. Now you're asking me just to turn on Jackie?

Massimo: So much for your unbending loyalty.

Deacon: Wait a second.

Massimo: No, don't worry about it. I'll get someone else.

Deacon: Someone else?

Massimo: Yeah, listen. I have a lot of associates who would be only too happy to help me out.

Deacon: You bring me in here. You put a gun to my head. You can't just ask me to --

Massimo: Yes I can! And I will.

Deacon: All right, Massimo, fine! I'll do it. If this is my only way I can prove my loyalty to you then -- I'm your guy.

Massimo: Good. Maybe this is the start of a real profitable association.

Deacon: All right, who do you think she's running around with?

Massimo: Why are you acting as if you don't already know?

Deacon: Massimo, how the hell would I know who your wife's running around with?

Massimo: He hasn't exactly been subtle.

Deacon: Who?

Massimo: Eric Forrester.

Deacon: That's who you think.

Massimo: Well, I don't have proof, but that's where you come in.

Deacon: Just out of curiosity -- once I get this proof for you? What are you going to do with it?

Massimo: You leave that to me.

Deacon: That's what I'm afraid of.

Massimo: No, no no. Just remember one thing, all right? You don't say one word of this to Brooke, Dominick, or anyone else.

Deacon: I got the message. I definitely don't want to be on your bad side.

Massimo: Good talking with you, deacon.

Deacon: Yeah, same here. Hey, thank you so much for everything. Okay. Jackie, thank you for everything. Especially your hospitality.

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

Jackie: So, darling, what was all that about?

Massimo: What, that? I just did what everyone asked me to do -- I welcomed him into the family.

Nick: Shirley's taking her nap?

Brooke: Shirley?

Nick: Yeah. Seriously, don't you think hope looks like Shirley Temple? Oh, come on, you know she does. I was thinking, we were doing all this name-swapping, we might as well change her first name, too.

Brooke: No! How about we stick with Hope, okay?

Nick: Okay suit yourself. What's in the bag?

Brooke: A wedding dress. Do you like it?

Nick: Wait a minute. I'm not supposed to see that, am I? Before the big day?

Brooke: Only if it's on me.

Nick: Oh, okay. It's nice, beautiful.

Brooke: Eric Forrester made it for me.

Nick: I figured there'd be a Forrester infiltrate this wedding somehow.

Brooke: I don't have to wear it.

Nick: Do you want to?

Brooke: Yes.

Nick: All right, then you should.

Brooke: Does it bother you?

Nick: I would tell you if it bothered me. Let's make that a rule, okay? This'll be our first rule. If I'm doing anything that ticks you off, you make sure you tell me. Got it?

Brooke: Got it.

Nick: Good.

Brooke: Where is this coming from?

Nick: Where's what coming from?

Brooke: This attitude.

Nick: My mother. I don't like the way her and the old man are getting along. You know, they're just not communicating. That's the key to relationships -- communicating. Otherwise, you have all this misunderstanding and hurt feelings underneath of it. They should be happy right now. And they're not. So you promise me. Now, you -- you make sure that if you need to say something to me, or if I'm doing something, you get it off your chest, okay?

Brooke: You sure? It might be opening Pandora's box.

Nick: I can handle it. For example, if I'm ever being annoying -- because I can be annoying sometimes, do you know that?

Brooke: You?

Nick: Mm-hmm. You just let it out, okay? You just tell me.

Brooke: Oh, I will.

Nick: Promise?

Brooke: Promise.

Nick: Swear?

Brooke: Swear.

Nick: Double swear?

Brooke: Okay, now you're being annoying.

Nick: Atta girl. Where did your head just go now? I saw a whole switch in you. What are you thinking about?

Brooke: Oh, I was just thinking about today. It was a nice day.

Nick: Did you just say "nice"? You said "nice" again, didn't you? My mother said "nice." No one's ever used the word "nice" to describe my life, or my day, or anything. What is that all about, anyway? "Nice"?

Brooke: Yeah, I know, my life hasn't really been nice. It's been scandalous and shameful, never nice.

Nick: I got to give you the nod on this one, kid. You've gone through a lot.

Brooke: Well, I just made wrong decisions.

Nick: Well, now you're going to start making right ones, right?

Brooke: Right. Thank you.

Nick: For what?

Brooke: For just always being sure about everything. I mean, it doesn't seem to drive you crazy the way I'm always being pulled in opposite directions. You're always on an even keel.

Nick: I'm the captain. That's my job.

Brooke: Well, thank you for being my captain.

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

Deacon: Yeah?

Jackie: What happened in there?

Deacon: You're not going to believe this.

Jackie: Try me.

Deacon: Well, Massimo and I, we had a little heart-to-heart. I don't really think he believed your story from the other night, Jackie.

Jackie: What? He confided in you about that?

[ Jackie sighs ] Is he playing some kind of game?

Deacon: Yeah, yeah. It's called "I, spy."

Jackie: What?

Deacon: Jackie, he's hired someone to keep an eye on you.

Jackie: Oh, my god. Do you know who?

Deacon: Yeah. Me.
