Nick: Where are you, Brooke?


Jackie: Don't lie to me, Deacon. Please don't lie to me.

Deacon: Jackie, let this go.

Jackie: I trusted you -- to tell me the truth. I believed you when you said that Nicky was the father. I was a fool, wasn't I? Because you lied to me, Deacon, didn't you? You lied to me.


Ridge: You don't really believe I love this child? I do, Brooke. I love him like he's my own. That's what I've been trying to tell you this whole time.

Brooke: Because you want me back. But it's not enough to just want me, Ridge. And it's not enough to just accept him. He deserves so much more.

Ridge: And he's gonna get so much more.

Brooke: But you despise his father.

Ridge: Because he has you. You change that, you change everything.

Brooke: I can't change the paternity.

Ridge: Well, I'm trying to tell you that that doesn't matter. That is not gonna be an issue here.

Brooke: Yes, of course it is, Ridge. If this little boy picks up any little bit of resentment from you, or that you don't like him in any way at all --

Ridge: Is this what you've been carrying around this whole time? In love with me, but scared to death for your little boy.

Brooke: Ridge, I just want to be a good mother. I want to give the best life to my baby that's possible.

Ridge: Brooke, you have to listen to me here. You don't ever have to worry about me and this baby. If I tell you I'm gonna love him like he's my own, I mean it. I still can't believe he's not my own. I've been crazy in love with this child since the first moment you told me you were pregnant with him. I know we did the paternity test. I know there's a piece of paper that says I shouldn't feel this way. But I do. I do. This little boy has felt like mine since that first moment. I mean, he is not going to be anything but cherished by me, Brooke. Absolutely cherished. I swear it to you.


Deacon: Do you really think that I would lie? Let me rephrase that -- about something this big?

Jackie: Yes I do. For chance to get back into your daughter's life. To be a real father to her again. To pay back ridge for the everything he's done to you.

Deacon: Okay, you know what, Jackie? You think whatever you want, okay? You think whatever you want. You spin your little fantasy. And when you're ready to come back down to earth, you let me know. 'Cause, frankly we've got a couple things that are just a little bit more important that we need to discuss. Like, I don't know, Ridge trying to seduce Brooke.

Jackie: And you can't let that happen, can you? I mean, not after everything you've done to get to this point. That's what you said, Deacon. Oh, god, Deacon. What have you done?

Deacon: I didn't --

[ Phone rings ]

Jackie: Nicky!

Nick: We're out. They dropped all the charges.

Jackie: Oh, thank god!

Nick: Well, you better get home. The old man's anxious to see you.

Jackie: Will you be there?

Nick: No, I'm looking for Brooke. Can't find her. You got any ideas?

Jackie: Well, there's a chance that she may be at Ridge's club in his private dining room.

Nick: With him?

Jackie: Yes.

[ Phone disconnects ] Nicky --

Deacon: You see, this is good. Nick's out. He can go put the kibosh on Ridge and Brooke.

Jackie: Well, that's what you would do, isn't it? I mean, that's what you would do if you were given the chance. And you were given the chance.

Deacon: Jackie, things worked out for the best. For everyone. Accept it.

Jackie: I can't. I have to know the truth.

Deacon: Jackie --

Jackie: Deacon, please. Please, Deacon, for the love of god tell me! Tell me that you did not lie about those results.

Deacon: Things worked out the way they were meant to.

Jackie: Meant to be? What are you talking about -- the way they were meant to be or the that they are?

Deacon: Why're you pushing me on this? You don't want to know!

Jackie: It's Ridge's. God! The baby is Ridge's!

[ Jackie sighs ]


Ridge: Remember the ultrasound? Remember when we saw that? Huh? I saw that little guy swimming around in there and my heart just leapt. It felt the same as when I saw my own kids, Brooke, for the first time. There was no difference whatsoever. It felt just like my own kids.

Brooke: Ridge, it's one thing when he hasn't been born yet. You can imagine what it'll be like. But what about when he is here and he's half Nick's?

Ridge: I know there are gonna be a few common things, you know.

Brooke: Ridge, I'm being serious.

Ridge: What I'm trying to say to you, Brooke, is that it is not going to be a problem.

Brooke: Maybe you wouldn't have a problem with it. But Nick, he would be thrilled! He would love those things. Don't you think my baby deserves that? To have somebody that is so excited about every little thing?

Ridge: Yes, of course he deserves that. And he'll have that from Nick. Nick can provide that. I want you to think about this. You said that kids can sense things. Well, what's he gonna sense from you, when you're married to someone you don't love? I know you care about Nick, I know you respect him, and all that. But it's not like it is with you and me. You know that. Don't you think your son's gonna pick up on that?

Brooke: Ridge, stop! I don't know. I don't know what to do.

Ridge: I'll tell you exactly what you need to do, Brooke. You need to follow your heart.

Brooke: A lot of good that's done for me.

Ridge: Yeah. Look what a lot of good it's done. It's brought us to here, right now. The two of us. On the brink of the life that we've always wanted for so long. Oh, Brooke, it may not be perfect, that life we want, but it's a helluva lot closer than most people get. And you know what? It's the most important thing I've ever wanted in my life. You and me could give this little child the most incredible, incredible life, Brooke. I'm telling you -- and all you have to do is say yes. And everything will come together, I promise you, Brooke. Just say the word.

Brooke: Yes.

Ridge: Excuse me? I didn't hear.

Brooke: Yes. I said, yes, Ridge.

Ridge: Ahhh! Come here. Come here. God --

Brooke: Do you think we're crazy to think that this could work?

Ridge: I think we're crazy to think it can't. Oh, Logan, you've made me so happy. You've made me so happy.

Brooke: Oh, god, I've missed you so much.

Ridge: You promise me right now. That's it. No more. No more. Not once more do we ever lose faith. Say it. Say it.

Brooke: Never. Never.

Ridge: Never what?

Brooke: Lose faith.

Ridge: Faith. Never, never again.

Ridge: Brooke? What is it, my love?

Brooke: How do I tell Nick?


[ Chattering ]

Jackie: No.

Deacon: Jackie, nobody has to know.

Jackie: What?

Deacon: We've kept the secret this long.

Jackie: We? We? We -- what is this we? You told me that Nicky was the father! You tricked me!

Deacon: I told you what you needed to know. You were on the edge. You were stressed. You were drinking.

Jackie: Oh, for god's sake! Don't pretend you did this for me.

Deacon: Oh, okay, fine! Then, you know what, don't you pretend that you wouldn't have done the same damn thing so that Nicky could have his own little family.

Jackie: But it's not his own family, is it? It isn't his child!

Deacon: Oh, would you just stop freaking out? Okay? Nothing has changed.

Jackie: What are you talking about? I can't lie about this.

Deacon: You can't what? Are you kidding me? That's how this whole damn thing got started, with your little secret!

Jackie: I never believed that Ridge was the father. I still don't want to believe it.

Deacon: Okay, okay. Take a deep breath, just take a deep breath. Relax. We never had this conversation.

Jackie: Oh, Deacon --

Deacon: Listen to me. If the truth comes out, Nick loses everything. Do you understand what -- listen to me! Do you understand what I'm saying? He loses everything, Jackie -- his son -- his family -- the woman that he loves. You more than anyone understand what that'll do to him.


[ Nick sighs ]

Nick: Well. Charming. The place, that is. Very -- classy.

Brooke: Nick.

Nick: Hey. You're looking lovely as always. I was worried about you. I thought you might getting all pale and anxiety-ridden missing me. Maybe even lose your appetite, but, guess not.

Ridge: Obviously you're out on bail.

Brooke: I think you should go.

Ridge: I won't be far.

Nick: We know.

Brooke: They dropped the charges?

Nick: Yeah.

Brooke: Wow. That's great.

Nick: Yeah. It is, isn't it? Unpeeled. How gauche.

Brooke: Nick?

Nick: Yeah?

Brooke: I thought you'd be more relieved.

Nick: About the charges being dropped? It wasn't that big a surprise, really. Neither was this --

Brooke: What?

Nick: Finding you and Forrester in some romantic setting.

Brooke: Look, there's something I need to explain.

Nick: Oh, come on, Brooke. You've said it all, haven't you? Over and over. You and Forrester and your history, how it doesn't really affect anything between you and me.

Brooke: That's not what I was going to say.

Nick: Whatever. I'm really not interested. Here's the deal. I'm getting a little tired of this.

Brooke: What?

Nick: The intrigue, the excuses, the drama -- god, the drama! I'm thrown in jail. You know, I'm a simple guy. I've always had a real uncomplicated life. I like it that way.

Brooke: I can understand that.

Nick: Well, good. Good. Then maybe you'll understand when I tell you this -- I want out.


Jackie: Yes, deacon. I do know exactly what this will do to my son. Because my son has never opened up his heart to anybody ever for fear of getting hurt. God. Damn you! Damn you! How could you do this to me? How could you put me in this, position?

Deacon: Okay, listen to me! Then, you know what, then don't say anything to anybody. Because they'll be better off.

Jackie: Right. Except Ridge!

Deacon: Who the hell cares about Ridge?

Jackie: What?

Deacon: You listen to me. This never even would have happened if he didn't try to keep me and my daughter apart.

Jackie: God, I'm beginning to understand why he did! Have you no conscience?

Deacon: You go ahead. Go ahead. Give it a shot. Really, I want to see it. You go ahead and you try your little rescue mission and see what happens. You think he'll appreciate it, don't you? He will skin you alive. You trust me. He's not a very forgiving fellow. And when he's done, he will throw you to Massimo. Oh yeah, that's right. Because your little secret set his two boys at war, and it didn't have to happen. Now, how the hell do you think he'll like that? I am on your side, Jackie, always. But you need to think about this very, very carefully. Do you understand what I'm saying? You need to consider all the angles. Are you listening to me?

Jackie: Yes. Yes, I understand. I'm listening. I would lose my marriage. I would lose my career. And I would definitely lose Nicky.

Deacon: Jackie, he would never, ever speak to you again.

Jackie: That's very likely. But none of that changes what I have to do.

Deacon: Which is what? Jackie, where are you going?

Jackie: I'm going to go and tell my son the truth.


Brooke: You want out?

Nick: Maybe I shouldn't have put it so bluntly.

Brooke: No, it's all right.

Nick: It's just not working for me, you know?

Brooke: I thought you were happy.

Nick: When I look at you -- who wouldn't be? This is all new to me, don't forget that. The thought of coming home to somebody everyday and sleeping with somebody and growing old with somebody -- it sounds like a great life. It's just gotta be with the right somebody, you know?

Brooke: You don't think we're right for each other?

Nick: Oh, come on. You're the head of a fashion company. I'm just some silly old sailor, right? It's a miracle we made it this far. Who are we kidding? If it wasn't for this child -- this beautiful child.

Brooke: Nick.

Nick: I'm sorry to drop it on you like this.

Brooke: Well, if that's how you feel.

Nick: Well, come on, at this point there really aren't that many options, are there? It's probably a good thing Forrester broke the wedding up when he did. A couple more seconds and it would've been a done deal. Lucky break, huh?

Brooke: I would've been lucky to be your wife.

Nick: I don't know about that.

Brooke: I do.

Nick: All the times I imagined you saying those words -- never like this.

Brooke: Oh, thank you. Oh, thank you so much.
